Sudden Death Removes Prominent East Kootenay Figure
News Creates Profound Impression in City on Tuesday.
Quarter Century of Residence Here Leaves Indelible

Life's un certainty was utartlingly

people on Tuesday when the wind
came  Lllll I   It.   E.   Beattie had  passed
away tlmt morning iu Spokane. So
abrupt seemed the tidings that nt
first tliey were received with Incredulity. Only on the Saturday previous he hml left this city after a short
visit hore on business, during which
be hail greeted his old friends, and
this made tbe news of his death all
the more startling.
It was in the morning about nine
o'clock that Mr. Beattie was taken
ill, ami iu spite of medical attendance
from .specialists, he passed away at
the Davenport Hotel at eleven o'clock. Word reached this city in tbe
afternoon, but it was the early evening before confirmation of the sad
event was received, and it was realized that death had written tbe
elose of nn eventful life, one which
was intimately wrapped up with the
story of the development of tbis city.
Mr. Beattie was travelling alone
with his secretnry, and word being
sent to his three daughters in Vancouver, they proceeded to Spokane
for the sad mission of escorting the
remains of their father back to his
home city, so that they could be laid
away beside the late Mrs. Beattie.
who pre-deceased him in 1022. Mayor
T. M. Roberts, a friend of mnny years
standing, left on Wednesday for Spokane to accompany them on their sad
journey from Spokane to Cranbrook.
The remains will reach this city on
Thursday evening, nnd are to
be taken to the Presbyterian church,
where they will rest till the funeral,
which takes place on Friday afternoon nt 2.30, under tho auspices (tf

The pnssing of Robert Ktbelbert
Beattie with such tragic suddenness,
removes from human ken one who
enn be said to bc perhaps the most
outstanding figure in the life of this
city in its early dnys. Ile came here
from Manitoba a young man, full of
energy nnd ambition, nnd ns the city
grew his interests grew in diversity,
till there was not one of the various
lines of activity in thc Knst Kootenny.
Industrial, agricultural! mining or
business, in which be hud nol investments i>f n considerable extent, lie
bad faith in Cranbrook nnd the Baal
Kootenay, which he showed iii a practical way.
Th,- Inte Mr. Henttie wns bom ut
Bruit-bridge, (bit,, in 1S72. The
family moved Inter to Portage In
Prairie, Man., where Mr. Beattie flrsl
entered the drug business. A little
late, they moved to Onk Lake, Man.,
where be completed his druggist's
apprenticeship, lie came to Cranbrook at the time of the laying of
: ter] through the Crow, arriving in
ffloi before the arrival of the mil
rond, leaching here in April 1807.
In IX'.iK he opened the first (IrUfi
store here, marking the commence
ment of n business career here which
proved very successful, um) in which
lib Interest! widened out lo u con
Mtlel'iible extent. He wns tbe post
muster in lhe eurly duys. nml wus
interested in the formation of imiuy
busitiess concerns uml oilier organ
iMtloni that bad for (heir object the
development of particular photos
of activity i» the young town. The
water C0mpany( electric light company, nnd u little Inter the telephone
company) were nil given the benefit
of bis energy nud business foresight-
edness in their enrly organization
stages, nnd in addition his personal
interests grew with the growth nf the
town nud bis drug business. He
acquired interests in various lumber
compan iesan.dl ffl ,. (11 , til ,. f!l
companies, bind holdings in the wny
of farm lands in the district, ns well
us property in the city und elsewhere,
und it is a tribute to his business
acumen thut most of the undertakings
with which ho was connected, in Inter
years brought him hnndsome returns.

OH when the opportunity of-
To cataloguo his business
would be to name all the
avenues along which the dolt of the Knst Kootenny hns
taken place in the last quarter of a
century, and he was always keenly
tdive to possibilities which could be
worked up into profitable ventures.
Ho established among other businesses a brunch of his drug store at
Creston, which luter came under his
sole control, and it was iu connection
with the disposal of this that he came
to the district lust week. He worked
hard for two or three dnys in connection with the sule of this business
and ils stock, and it is more than likely it overtaxed his strength at that
time, for he complained before he
left this city on Saturduy lnst for
Spokane, of not feeling well. Un-
bminding energy in business matters
seemed to be one of his characteristics, and it is not improbable thnt be
overestimated bis strength.
Always actively interested in local
affairs and political matters, and a
lifelong Liberal, he became nn outstanding figure in the local party
councils, and as long as twenty years
ago was making visits to the provincial and national capitals on political missions that had n direct bearing "ii the outlook of his home town.
In 1917, in the wartime general
election, ho was the Liberal candidate, supporting Sir Wilfred Laurier,
then at the bend of the party. He
was defeated then by Dr. Saul Bonnell, of Fernie, running as a Unionist candidate. At the next election,
however, in 1921, be headed a field
of three, getting a particularly strong
vote in the surrounding points of the
j district. He never took his sent at
1 Ottawa, however, resigning on the
appointment of Dr. King to the Dominion cabinet. Following this came

t Harbor Board, nnd bis removal to
tli,. coast, bul his extensive interests
here remained, and brought him here
on fairly frequent visits. He was
was making efforts to realize on some
of his holdings in the district, as witnessed by the transfer he just completed a few days before liis death,
and other transactions of comparatively recent date.
Hla removal to the const was somewhat precipitated by the death in
1922 ■ ( Mrs, Boattle, beloved by all
who Knew her, and a sore blow to
the family. It is fresh in the minds
of their friends here that the funeral
of the bite Mrs. Seattle wns the largest over held in this eity, nnd formed
mute. bUl oloqueni token of the regard In which Mr. Beattle was held
in the estimation of the people of
the city ami district, and it is altogether likely lhat bis own obsequies

Past  Time Made
By Freight; Three
Days From Winnipeg
One hears all sorts of stories these
duys ubout the fast time that the C.
P.It. und the National Railways are
making with their freights to points
such as Vancouver und Calgary,
where the railway must deliver the
goods us fust or faster than his com-
pelitor to retain the trade. Goods
are being delivered with less delay
thnn to any pluce on the continent.
However, Cranbrook is not on the
main line, nor yet u competitive
point, consequently when W. P. Doran got word on Monduy morning that
a carload of beds, thnt had been
shipped from Winnipeg on Thursday,
had arrived Sunday, ho began to wonder whether they hud come by express. On enquiry he was told by
Agent G. T. Moir, "No Billy, just
ordinary freight, why we are ready
for even niroplune competition these
days." While all the local merchants agree with Mr. Moir that the
service is good, yet the shipment referred to probably constitutes a
record so fnr as time between Winnipeg und Crnnbrook is concerned,
for which tho Canadian Pacific Railway are deserving of ull due credit.

To Conduct United Church Services
Rev. E. W. McKay left on Saturday Inst for Spokane, on a short visit,
expecting to return this week in
order to bc here to conduct the services nt the United church, during
the absence of Rev. B. C. Freeman
at the B.C. Methodist Conference
this month.
on Friday to attend the funeral. Mr.
George Beattie, now of Vancouver
Island, is a brother, und up till about
fourteen years ugo resided here also.
By the manner in which Crescent
Lodge, No. 33, Knights of Pythias,
entertained its visiting Grand Chancellor on Wednesday evening, it wns
evident thut its members were not
lacking one iota in hospitality for
which thc locul lodge hns become noted. Augmented by a good number
from Kimberley, Bull River and other more distant points, Bro. W. IL Jones of Nunaimo. Grand Chancellor of
the order for B.C., was greeted by u
lurge crowd of enthusiastic Pythians,
when he addressed the lodge in the
subordinate degree. His remarks
were listened to attentively, and were
much appreciated by those whose
pleasure it was to hear them. With
regard to the newly-formed Pythian
sisters, the visitor had a lot of good
things to soy. Several candidates
for the first degree were bold enough
to essay to ride the goat, even though
they knew that this all-important
member of their organization is usually fe<l on nothing but red pepper
and fire crackers for dnys previous
to the visit (i.f the Grand Chancellor.
The banquet which the members
were asked to sit down to was one
which could not be improved upon
hud it iieen prepared for the king and
queen, rather than the knights and
their ladies. That the best of everything wus there in abundance is really a mild way of putting it.
Following the banquet the visiting
officer responded to a toast in his honor. He wus in n happy mood und
threw out some valuable bints for the
success of the order which were much
appreciated. He particularly emphasized the importance of the sister
organization to the main body. Addresses were also given by other visiting members, as well as local Pythians. The work of the degree
team in putting on the first rank so
impressively was very favorably commented upon by many present.
Past Chancellor Commander E. A.
Hill mnde a most efficient toastmater
Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Moorhouse and
family returned Saturday last from
Long Bench, California, and visited
with relatives in Seattle, North Van-
en u ver and Victoria, ou their return
up the Paeifie Highway. Mr, Moor-
Ihouse reports excellent roads pruc-
tlcolly all the way. The road from
| Bonners Ferry to Moyie wns thb
roughest of the whole journey. They
returned from Seattle via the Columbia Highway from Portland along the
south bunk of the Columbia River,
passing the famous Mul ton mah and
other Falls, which were well worth
the extra journey to see.
From Vancouver, B. C, to Long
Beach only S2 miles nre unpavod,
out of a total of 1550 miles.
The journey down in December
wus made by tiie inland route via
Sacramento and Bakersfield, und the
return via the const route along the
Pacific Ocean for hundreds of miles
up to Sun Jose, Oakland, etc.
Mr, Moorhouse states that this has
been his only real vacation during
the lnst 20 years, and that he and bis
family have thoroughly enjoyed the
beautiful warm climate of Lung
Bench aud all its many attractions, |
and that he is now trying to settle
down for a season's survey work in
the Crnnbrook district.

The resumption of work at Moyie
brings to mind many stories of the
palmy days of the St, Kugene, when
its immense output was a big factor
in Kast Kootenay mining. The commencement of work has meant something of a revival of business conditions in Moyie, and a number of
properties have been sold there recently to house some of the company

Interference witli private business
which came as a war measure put a
stop to negotiations which would have
iriven British Columbia the first unit
of a steel plant, according to Mr. W.
fjK, Wilson, managing director of the
Crows Nest Pass Coal Company, in an
address to the mining bureau uf the
Vancouver Board of Trade hist woek.
The subject was broached by Mr.
Wilson in tbe course of his remarks
on the coal market situation. At Fernie, he Bald, they are mining the best
coal in America for certain purposes.
Its coking qualities attracted attention . Mr. Wilson interested capital in a proposal for the construction
of a steel plant within easy reach of
the raw material. Mr. C. P. Hill located iron areas near the British
Columbia-Alberta boundary and Mr.
Wilson had arranged for a class of
iron oi'o which, mixed with the local
product, would have made an excel
lent iron for steel manufacture.
The deal fell through when, on ac
count of the war demands for coal,
Mr. Wilson's company could not guarantee a minimum coke production
over a period of years.
"We were not asking any Kovem-
ment support of this steel project,
remarked Mr. Wilson.
Discussing tbe complaints about
the shipping of Bellingbam coal tu
Vancouver, Mr. Wilson said this coal
no matter what its nature, if in competition wiih British Columbia ought
to pay the regular tax.
The Itellingbam coal, which
classed as "lignite," enters Canada
free, and, without advertising its nature, it iH offered to tbe public as a
find, whicb is as serviceable as British
Columbia coal.

il was characteristic of him thai he was always on
the lookoul for further opportunities for lhe development of latent or dormant resources^
The crowning step iii lii^ career was when in
1921 he was given the confidence of the popular
franchise and elected lo parliament. His interests
even then had taken on .-i wider scope than lhe eity
of Crauhrook or the district, but from that time he
became a public man. Willi the atnc energy with
which In- bad carried on In ov n alTairs he- soon
broughl l" his public office a prestige ii had nol
known, and wiih the rapid expansion of lhc purl of
Vancouver he came lo lhe fronl as a man of capacity and judgment.    Hi   interest in his work was tie-
Thai he looked kindly upon the East Kootenay was obvious, and it seemed more than men*
talk when he wished thai his lot could again he cast
in the district where he had lived .-" long. At .-i
fraternal gathering not lung since he said that his
heart was wrapped up in the East Kootenay, and
that when the time came for him to lay things
down — and lie Utile realized it was tu he only a
matter uf a few weeks!— he wanted to lie buried
here. Sn it i- fitting that Cranbrook should receive him in death, when il had seen su much uf
him in lite.
As in lhe case uf any man who attains success
by nn mere accident, but by aggressiveness and
[orccfulncss, there an- those wlm du nut count him
a friend. Bul he had qualities tliat all admire, even those wlm differed with him un various mailers,
and it cannot lie said uf everyone, as ni Mr. I'ealtic,
lhal a- Ihey climbed Ihe ladder they broadened
their mind. Scores can testify to his generosity
ami loyalty to liis friends, and more -si il I lo his geniality. The Herald often in laic years differed wiih
llu- political principles which Mr. Beattie supported, Imi llial never prevented him from passing a
warm greeting, and a conversation very recently is
cherished fur the remembrance uf the deep Interest
In displayed in the advancement of the interests of
his province ni adoption, coupled with a kiudly invitation in lake advantage of his hospitality when
lhc chance came. Incidentally he harked hack In
his early days here and recalled that his drugstore
had carried an advertisement in tlte first issue of this

tryit could be done for her.
On Friday afternoon fune
ices were held at the Bapl
and the remains conveyed
for interment on Monday
week. At four o'clock on Friday
when the services were held the
church was filled with friends of the
Qeceaced girl. Including ■■* g I many
members of the Rebekahs, ->f which
order she had been a member. Rev,
W. T, Tapscott conducted iln- service
and delivered a very sympathetic ami
encouraging address. He referred to
the particularly sad manner of death
in this instance—death at any stage
of life heing hard lo hear. 1ml  being
cut off in the budding stage of early
womanhood being particularly hard
to understand. He also referred to
the fortitude of Miss Derbyshire in
the hours of her suffering, and also

her to possess.

The late Miss Derbyshire was hut
nineteen years of uge, and had not

took the opportunity to show their
sympathy in an extremely practical
fraternal way, assuming a burden
which the shoulders of her family,
who have already bad more than an
ordinary share of misfortune, would
have found heavy to bear. In this
other friends have joined assuming
responsibilities in a manner that indicates their sympathies are more
than a mere expression.

Monday of this week, Rev. \V. T. Tapscott going from tbis city to conduct
the services there. In addition to

Remarkably fine time is being
made this season by the two C.P.R.
trains engaged on the hauling of fill
material from a point five miles oast
of Creston to the long trestle at Kootenay Landing, an average of 70 cars
of filling heing hauled over the 40
miles of round Hip.
The work will continue to about
July, by which time it is figured the
entire trestle will be completely earth
worked, after some four years of
filling effort. The report persists
that with the fill complete, next year
will see a start made to connect up
the steel between Kootenay Landing
and Proctor ond to do awny with a
10-mile barge transport between
hose points, as well as rendering unnecessary the bool passenger service
from tin- Landing to Nelson.
With a resumption of coke shipping
and the ever-increasing tonnage of

Vegetable gardening may be defined as the art of providing tbe
home, throughout a? much of the
year as possible, with a continual
supply of fresh vegetables of good
quality, Of good quality and fresh
because these are thc two main reasons for home gardens being kepi up.
From a financial standpoint if one
considers his time, few home gardens
are very profitable, but the satisfaction of having good fresh vegetables
at all times is worth a great deal,
and the earlier they can be produced
the more they are appreciated.
The soil is one 0* the governing
factors in producing early vegetables
and this is why most market gardeners desire soil of a sandy loam nature.
They realize it can be worked early
in the spring, it is easily cultivated,
it responds quickly to fertilizers, it
affords good drainage and it is not
inclined to hake.
The loam soils contain a good
amount of humus, and as humus is
a plant food it is an essential factor.
Unfortunately much of the soil in
the gardens in this vicinity is of a
clay nature somewhat lacking in humus.
The maintenance of the humus supply in the soil is important in all
branches of agriculture, but particularly so in that of' vegetable gardening.
Humus not only fulfils the mechanical function of rendering soils
porous and more retentive of moisture, but furnishes ulso the essential
medium for the activities of the bacteria, so useful in rendering available
plant food in the-soil, further it represents the chief natural source of
the soil's nitrogen supply.
Humus may be applied to the soil
in various ways, but the two methods
generally used are to grow crops such
as clover or vetch nnd plow this under. Of course this method is only
practicable where the garden is large.
Here, where the gardens are small,
humus can be built up by adding
plant food in tho form of manure.
The importance of barnyard manure
in market gardening can scarcely be
over estimated, its value is not alone
due to its fertilizing properties—
though these are not inconsiderable—
but also to the fact that it supplies
humus—forming material., without
which the soil cannot become an
ideal medium for the growth of crops.
There are about ten essential ele-
...trnts of plant food but as a general
rule only .1 of these tend to become
deficient for crop requirements in the
average soil. These are nitrogen,
phosphoric acid and potash, and a
knowledge of the primary functions
of these elements will guide the vegetable gardener in the intelligent application of mnnures aud fertilizers
for his crops. Nitrogen more particularly promotes the growth of stem
and leaf, and is. therefore, an important constituent of a fertilizer for
cabbage,   lettuce,   and   other   leafy
keeps a shallow layer nf dust-like
soil over the surface of the garden
at all times. Such tillage not only
catches and holds moisture and helps
lo make plant food available, but in
most cases controls the weeds.
To get best results:
1. Till immediately before sowing oi
planting  the  areas   tn   be   planted
2. Till immediately after planting tlu
ground compacted in ibe planting
:). Till tbe entire garden at least once
a  week  if  soil   conditions  permit.
This may be reduced when plants
occupy the space between thc rows.
■1. Till after each rain thai is heavy
enough to destroy the soil  mulch.
Tillage should be shallow so as not
to destroy thc roots of shallow-rooting plants. A layer of loose soil 1
to two inches deep is an efficient
conserve!' of soil moisture, therefore
there   is   no   need   for   deep   tillage.
Tillage must be not only thorough.
hut timely as well. Tillage done at
thc wrong time is frequently injurious instead of beneficial. The first
thing that the gardener on heavy
soils must learn is to "make baste
slowly" after rains. Working a
heavy soil when it is too wet causes
the particles to cement together in
elods and these necessitate a great
amount of labor if the proper phyl-
cal condition of the soil is to bc restored. Tillage of clay soil when it
is too moist may result in conditions
which require two or three seasons
to   remedy.
On the other hand, tillage should
not be delayed so long after rains
that the soil bakes, as this is equally
unfavorable. It is necessary, therefore, for the gardener tu watch the
soil after rains heavy enough to pack
the soil, and to till the entire garden
as soon as the soil is in condition
for it.
There is no infallible test for determining when a soil is ready for
tillage. A simple method is: Squeeze
a handful of soil; if upon opening the
hand the soil crumbles readily when
slightly disturbed, then it is safe to
till, if it cements and sticks together, or becomes slightly muddy on
the outside, it is too wet.
Weeds should be destroyed just
after the seeds germinate. Tillage
at intervals of a few days before
planting makes weed control after
planting much easier. The weed
seed, having been in the soil before
the vegetable seed is sown, is likely
to germinate before the vegetable
seed, and thus the weeds get the start
of the young vegetables. This often
makes it difficult to control the
weeds along the rows of parsnips or
other slowly germinating plants.
Stretching th0 garden line over the
row and cultivating just as though
the vegetables were up will eliminate
most of this trouble.
Thc garden needs less water when
properly tilled; a good soil mulch is

Just here it might be wise tn say
a few words regarding the watering
and caring for lawns. As you know
it is the general practice to water the
lawns nbout as often as possible and
with the amount of stin-
or entirely destroyed. Most garden
pests are either insects or diseaf
Of these, the former most often demand control measures, although the
latter also frequently cause considerable losses.
A few simple measures applied at
the light time will usually contr
most of the pests. To do this su
cessfully, however, the gardener must
ever be on the lookout for pests ami
apply control measures before the
pest becomes widespread, or does
much damage. The application of
poison to potato vines after the
beetles havo eaten off the leaves, is
a waste of time and material so far
as that particular hill is concerned.
Garden   Sanitation.
One of the first things for the
gardeners to observe is "garden sanitation." Frequently garden pests,
both insect and disease, nre carried
over in the waste material of tho
previous season's crop. While working refuse material into the soil is
commonly recommended, one should
be sure that in so doing he is not
inviting trouble for next season by
providing a pest to be controlled.
Burn leaves, stems, or other refuse,
if there is the least suspicion that
they may be a sourcP of infestation.
Sanitation should be a continuous
practice, not left to a general cleanup in the fall or spring.
Rotation of Crops.
This is one of the best methods
of avoiding pests in ordinary farm
operations. While it is not possible
to realize as much benefit from crop
rotation in the city garden—especially as regards insect pests—-it is of
some value in certain instances and
frequently of great value in particular diseases. In the case of insects
which pass the winter in the upper
layer of soil, fall tillage, which exposes   the   pest   to   the   unfavorable
temperature changes and to the at-1 sufficient  soil  moisture.    Immediate

Good results demand careful attention to the soil conditions during
the summer. Three things are nec-
ossary: (1) weeds must be prevented from competing seriously with the
vegetables for food ami moisture, or
from excluding light from the low
growing plants, (2) a constant nnd
sufficient supply of moisture must be
maintained, and (3), the soil must be
kept in such condition that the food
locked up in its particles may become
available for use by the plants. Tillage ts of first importance in attaining these objects.
Tillage must be thorough and timely for satisfactory results. Many
gardens which give promise of large
production during the eurly part of
the season turn out to be failures
because tillage Is  neglected,
enn see that very very few people
have applied any manure last fall,
and probably fewer people still apply
fertilizers. This means that the sod
in the lawns is being depleted each
year, as each time the grass is carted
off, the soil in that lawn is just that
much poorer. It appears to me that
if the the grass was cut just a little
more often, so that it would not
appear to look too much like an hay
field after being cut, and the grass
allowed to stay on the lawn, that
our lawns would always be getting
just a little better as far as fertilizers
are concerned. 1 would suggest that
anyone feeling tbat this practice
WOUld not be right, should try a
portion of their lawn for a year or
two, aud prove for themselves
whether or not by following this
practice they are not only improving
their lawn, hut at the same time
building up a soil richer in humus
and capable of holding much more
moisture, with the result that the
lawn would not have to be watered
nearly so often.

Sunday afternoon Cranbrook's representatives in the East Kootenay
District Baseball League journeyed
In Kimberley for tlu- first K»»ie of
the season. While the boys were
not able to boast of the big end of
the score, they made a fair showing
seeing that it was the first time they
had boon together, even for practice.
While on paper they may not appear
to excel in strength it is expected
Ihey will give a good account of them-
Pennant hopes soared high in the
first Inning for Cranbrook. when afler the first man had struck out, two
Blngles and a double earned them two
runs, ami that against the sturdy
Pennington. This, however, was as
far as their hopes got, as Kimberley
came back with three in their half of
the first, following with two more in
the second. three in tbe fourth, and
otic In eacb of the following four
innings, for Ihe total of twelve runs.
Cranbrook remained scoreless until
the sixth, when two more were ndded
and another in tbe eighth made
their score five.
The Kimherley pitchers seemed to
havt. good control, as they inssued no
free passes, wherens eight Kimberley
men reached first on transportations.
Rogers of Kimherley was the batting hero, driving out five runs and
scoring two himself. There was a
fair atetndance at the game.
