Wednesday morning the Baptist
Church wus the scene of a very pretty
wedding when In the presence of
a well filled church, Mr. William Wesley Moore and Miss Ivy
Woll'inglon were united in the bonds
of matrimony. Tho bride was given
away by her uncle, Mr. W. G, Hay-
word, while Mis.s Winnie Cox acted
as bridesmaid aud Mr. Hurry Moore
was the best man, Little Miss Peggy Moore was flower girl. The ceremony WOS performed by Rev. W. T.
TapBCOtt, Mrs. Kvans playing the
WOdding march.
Following tho ceremony the guests
journeyed to the residence of Mr.
Harry Moore where a delightful wedding breakfast was served. Severul
tables laden with gifts testified to
the popularity of ihe happy couple,
The bride is a niece of Mr, W. G.
Hayward and the duughter of Mr. and
Mrs. A. Woffington, of Birmingham,
Englund. Although in the city for
but u short time, she has made many
friends, while Mr. Moore has lived
in Cranbrook for twenty-two years
and is well and favorably known. For
the past few years he has held a responsible position with the Department of Natural Resources at Yahk.
Amid a heavy shower of rice and j
confetti, the newiyweds departed on I
the noon train for Vancouver ond
other coast points, a large number of
their Cranbrook und Yahk friends
being present to make their departure
one that they will not soon forget.
Among the Yahk friends attending
the nuptials were Mr. and Mrs. O.

Sewer Connections
Alderman Jackson reported on a
visit to the dairies he had ma*de in
company with Dr. J. W. Rutledge,
dairy inspector, and enquired as to
conditions which might not properly
come under the jurisdiction of thc
dairy inspector. He also reported
for the health committee as recommending that in the case of a complaint made as to an outside toilet,
that the owner of the premises in
question, and another property owner
where similar conditions are known
to obtain, be notified that they must
make connections with the sewer.
Alderman Cameron did not agree
with this step, claiming that as the
by-law in this respect had not been
lived up to, it was unwise to discriminate, and further that the sewerage disposal works were now taking
all that could  be  properly treated.

was a confused one and hand to hand
all the way through. My, but it was
a great day for thc boys first of ull
to gel their dads out to actually play
with them and then to see them
"bent" il rather than face ignominious defeat.
Those responsible for the game
should feel pleased with the result
of their efforts, but should see to it
that it is not the lnst affair of its
Considering the threatening weather and the necessity of a large
number having to leave for Kimberley who would undoubtedly have
been present, the number In attendance was very good, a large number
of cars filled with people cheering
for one side or the other—but as
near us could be judged, most of the
mothtrs were pulling for the boys.
The game had not progressed very
far when it was evident that "old
man this and that" was'not what he
used to be, and that whereas tbe spirit muy have been willing, the flesh
was very weak. The referee was W.
H, Wilson, who in the first period
had his hands full adjusting family
differences. The game ..ended 'd to
0 for the boys.
The line-up of the teams was as
Fathers—Mr. Heise, Art. Wallace,
Dr. Large, Bob Moffatt, Allan Moore,
W. J. Barber, Ed. Paterson, C. J.
Little, W. E. Worden,'P. G. Willis,
A, A. McKinnon and I). Buiton.   .
Boys—Each of the above mentioned fathers wire faced .with their
I sons as opponents, and besides these
there were also the following ..boys
who helped to.spell tiie finis-tv dud's
athletic prowess: Colvin Mcfturney,
J, MueKarlnne, Rankin, .1. Dixon,
Spence  and   Martin.
Wind Give* Out
The first period was scoreless, the
dads doing their best to keep th
boys in check, but try as they would,
the young rascals would get away
from them. The period was enlivened by some real fun between Bob
Moffatt and his son Jack. Bob, who
is a firm believer of all being fair
in love and war, decided that there
Were more ways than one to slop the
fleet-footed Jack, so he grabbed him
by the foot and down he came. This
drew a two-minute penalty from the
referee. Never did anything sound
more welcome than thc whistle announcing the end of the first period,
and Oh, my! the excuses that were
forthcoming from the dads for not
being able to play in the second
period! We, E. Worden had to get in
touch with a doctor about one of
his sick horses. Mr. MacKinnon was
suddenly needed at the * foundry,
while Dr. Large, after having cut
a gash in Dick's hand, looked Up his
note book and found that there wos
a patient waiting for him at his office. The only plausible reason was
that of Dan Burton, w"ho claimed that
bad he known that the game was going to lasl more than one period he
would have had Ratcliffe & Stewart
pump him up for half an hour intend of fifteen minutes. Ed Paterson claimed he was game to go on
but Archie Leiteh, who had made a
special trip from Calgary for lho occasion Insisted on going on in his
place to get a whack til his young
nephew, and incidentally show him
how thc game should bo played.
Substituting for the  dads iu  the
original Jine-up were: Geo. Simpson,
Gib. Sinclair, Ashton Powers and
Archie  Leiteh.
The long distance honor, barring
Art Wallace for being in training,
goes lo Burly Willis who went through
the whole game, keeping on his toes
nil the time.
Bill Barber and Bob Moffatt decorated the penalty box each for two
minutes for some fancied violation
of the rules.

meetings ever held by the Assembly

the lodge were in their places and

riegrfe for about thirty new Kember-
ley members. Following the meeting ii very enjoyable program was

Among the item? of business dealt

Addreii By Pretident
The chairman, Dr. Rutledge, in a
-(incise address, intimated that he
PCS pleased with the apparent success of the meeting, and the enthusiasm shown hy the Kimherley members. He could see many signs for
encouragement from many parts of
Cannjia. He could easily see that
the results of the work of the Native
Sons of Canada would he far-reaching, instilling in the people a virile
national spirit, and national pride.
He believed that such a result would
tend to strengthen tho tie that hinds
us to tbe British Empire. It was,
however, essential that WO establish
a strong Canadian race. He referred to the plans that were being mode
to commemorate July 1st in Cranbrook. and how thnt in general there
was great need of more attention
being drawn to the significance of
the day.
Mr. H. W. Herchmer in addressing
the new fledged members referred
f the duties tbat now were theirs,
both with respect to the lodge and
the country. Recognizing this urge
the founders e.f the Native Sons had
decided that it would Im* hest accomplished by uniting in a body those
whose deliberations would moke such

where she was met by her husband
in his automobile.
Miss Florence Brlckson is home to

Commander Powles left this week
in his new McLaughlin-Buick for

Mrs, E, M. Sandilands, who has
been spending the last two months
with relatives in the Western United
States, returned by way of thc main

The sweet-toned bell presented by

The dance given by the lnvermere
Golf Club in the David Thompson
Memorial Fort brought to u close a
very happy celebration of His
Gracious Majesty's birthday. The
attendance was very large. The
credit is due to the ladies who, as
usual, came forward in most excellent style and provided a paper-bag
.sandwich supper. The financial results were also encouraging.
The announcement has been received that the Glasgow University
hus been pleased to confer the
honary degree of LL.D. on His Honor
R. Randolph Bruce, the Lieutenant-
Governor of the Province, our esteemed and respected fellow resident
of this district.
One of the enterprizing ranchers
of this district, Mr. James Morland,
of Premier Ranch, Windermere, this
summer is starting to muke regular
deliveries, by truck, over the famous
Banff-Windermere automobile highway, of freshly grown early roots,
small fruits and dairy produce. These
will be for the bungalow camps particularly and for the tourists camped
by the way, filling a long felt want.
Other customers will be the large
hotels at Banff and the greengrocers.
As the trade increases the number
of trucks will be increased. By an
early start the through run can be
made before noon hour passes.
Mrs. Charles Fitzsimmons, of the
Sunbeam ranch, brought into town
two eggs, each weighing over four
ounces. These were the product of
a White Leghorn pullet of Mrs. Fitz>

"Westcliffe," at one time the home
of Mr. Thomas Archdale Pope, was
narrowly close to being caught by
fire last week. For many months
now it has lain idle but recently
some garbage was being burned. A
fierce gale sprung up while this wus
in operation and the fire broke uway
from its tenders and it looked for u
while as though the house would be
sacrificed. Efforts on the part of
immediate residents of that part as-
isted hy townspeople, were able to
subdue it by hard work.
Mr. Walter Nixon, the veteran of
muny camp fires in the mountains
f B.C., expects to start at once on
the improvement and extension of
the road leading up Horse Thief
Creek to the wonderful scenery
known as the Lake of the Hanging
Glaciers and the Ice Cave. These
wanders of nature are about thirty-
five miles west of Wilmer and are
looked upon as being wonderful attractions. Up to the present it haa
meant a three days' trip to get up
there and buck, but if the present intention is curried through the roud
for automobile service will be extended a further five miles, cutting the
horsebuck journey to the main or
base camp to a bare twelve.

Walking through the bush en theae
June evenings, one must be Very
careful. There ore lote of little
nests, and from above a bright eye
watches you. Two tail feathers also
rise straight up, as if equally alert.
Mother bird is ut home, deeply engaged In the hatching, and mustn't
be disturbed.
The commonest nest hereabouts la
not by any means the robin's. Thers
is a little jerry-built affair made of
wigs and lined with hair that you find
east and west nnd everywhere. It is
usually perched on a low branch of
a little tanuiruc, and contains four
tiny blue eggs, spotted towards the
larger end with brown and black.
The owners nre a kind of sparrow,
but neater antl smuller than the
houst' sparrow and with a red or
bright chestnut bar on the head.
Their song ia mere twittering.
Another common nest found In
low bushes contains four tiny brown
eggs. This is as neat and lovingly
built as the other is put together
carelessly. It is uniformly grey in
color, of twigs and cobwebs, all dyed
to match. When you come along,
the bird owner slips off the nest and
into the low grass or bush, and so
I haven't identified him yet.
Finding a thrush's nest the other
day reminded me of the firat thruah'i
nest I found, some thirty years ago,
and it might have been the same
identical nest—same straw structure
and same lining of dried mud. Now,
if Mr. Darwin is right, why don't the
birds fit into the scheme of evolution? This carrying mud to the
home by the bill-full Is a terribly
slow old fashioned way of building.
When will they use hods and muck-
sticks? How soon shall we Bee birds
become capitalists—have their homes
made by machines? And when will
they cease straining their throats,
and buy gramaphones to turn on
when they need a bit of music?
June is passing, gallant and splen'
did as ever. And there's only one
sad note. Another week and the wild
rose will be but a memory—memory
of the beauty of other summers and
promise of others to come. Men's
tastes differ in women, wine and
tennis racquets, but among blossoms
all the world loves the wild roBe.

concentrator was to be in operation
by June 1, Mr. Marsh learned at Kimberley. Thia will Increase the capacity of the mammoth plant to 4000
tons per day.

cows and some blooded bulls, Mr.
Morsh reports.' They also control
the largest mercantile institution, as
well as the power plant, and the
town's water supply.
The power is brought from Elk
River and Bull River, generating between them more than 20,000 horsepower. The Bull River plunt wus
purchased from a small local company that had been organized to HUp-
ply Cranbrook and near-by towns.
The Elk River plant, which is double
the size of tho older one, was erected
by the East Kootenay Light and Power company, a subsidiary of the Consolidated, iu order to supply the Sul-
viin mine and mill.
Power Limit Reached
With the unit in operation, nil
the available power will be in use,
and id is Mr. Marsh's understanding
thnt two plans for adding to it are
under consideration—one, another
plant further up the Elk river, and
the other, the laying of n cable
across Kootenay Luke to bring power
from the West Kootenuy's main
plant at Bonnington Falls.
The Consolidated recently discov-
roed that Sullivan ores can not bo
long stored in the mine, and consequently ore breaking was halted and
men were set at work removing all
the broken-up ores in the stopes to
prevent further heating, Mr. Marsh
reports. It became necessary to lay
off a number of men temporarily.
It is understood they will be re-employed ns soon as the St. Eugene mill
at Moyie nnd large mill at Kimberley
start concentrating the broken ore in
the stopes of the Sullivan mine.
Stemwinder   Satisfactory
At the Stemwinder mine, owned by
the Porcupine Goldfields interests,
shipments to the Trail custom concentrator were started on April 24,
nnd loading of other ears was to follow. The Stemwinder ores hod been
dumped on a mountainside, perhaps
about 7!i0 tons, and these ores were
the first to be removed. At the
same time a crew was set at work repairing the old North Star bunkers
at the railhoad, and future ores from
the Stemwinder and perhaps the
North Star will be loaded at that

New Company?
A third company is about to become heavily interested in the camp,
if the visit of a number of Minnesota and Michigan iron operators bears
the expected fruit. A number of
claims have been crown-granted to
these interests, who paid for them
outright instead of doing the customary $500 work to insure title to
each claim. Under the direction of an
engineer named Grimes, who keeps
his own counsel, the claims have
been thoroughly diamond drilled, and
the C.P.R. recently built a switch
track on which to "spot" the private
car in which the eastern operators
hnve started west to see the property.

For some time they stood looking

She broke oil' abruptly. Henfro

blazed with the showers of golden
sparks—this time they were like skyrockets at Christmas. Smiling a little
ut Molly's t'neo of fascinated ami
terror-stricken immobility, he lifted
her chin in his palm and rinsed her
quivering lips with his own.

queer laugh.
Molly jerked herself violently

When lie left her nt Mis. Parker's door a few minutes later with

■>.    The one nearest Molly wu
i  oc-
mpied by the president of the
versity and his wife; the other had
remained up to this juncture conspicuously empty. Now a (jroup of
elegantly gowned women and men
in evening dress filtered through the
velvet curtains at the buck.
Molly leaned forward to admire
the beautiful toilettes and hair
dressings, the softly voluptuous
wraps, which slipping downward revealed rounded white arms und
gleaming shoulders. Of ti .sudden
she dropped back In hei seat, a choking cry frozen on her lips. Stephen
was at that moment adjusting the
chair for the youngest and handsomest of tbe women, murmuring
the while something audacious and
smiling in her ear. Molly knew that
il was audacious—knew loo well that
look, that smile. She could almost
bear the tone that went with them . .
She closed ber eyes, caught her
quavering lips fiercely between her
teeth, shrank down Into the smallest
conceivable space. How dreadful if
be should sec her, should guess how
she was suffering, sin.old pity her . ,1
She roused a little presently and
looked round with some vague, desperate thought of escape, If she
could only get out without lieing
seen, without creating a commotion „ . . Bul no, she was hemmed
in on every side, trapped like n
wounded animal. Turning and twisting silmtly, writhing in her anguish
to escape, she encountered Mrs.
Parker's scared, stricken fuee.
"Of course, he's hound to be invited out a lot," the latter whispered
with n brnve ifToit of pooh-poohing
the whole thing, "a line handsome
man like him—and so entertaining!
That's millionaire Dllworth's daughter he's with . . . ."
Poor Molly, all ber long-anticipated
joy in the music, all the acute spirit-
release she was Used to getting out
of it, turned to ashes nml grapes of
gall. She determined not to look nt
that spot opposite, but she could look
nowhere else. She B0\v every move,
every gesture, every glance of Stephen's and the girl's. She knew when
he was saying something witty or
clever before Uie smiles or politely
restrained laughter of his little audience proclaimed It, She noted even
the careless, rather indolent manner
in which he applauded, an much an to-
man at the other end
of the box from Stephen . . . ?"
Mrs. I'arker kept up still a subdued
stream of chatter, as if she hoped
thos to make it up lo Molly. "That's
Gregory Cochran. He's n greal man
polities anil every way. a judge I
and a lawyer and I don'l Know what
ill   .   .   .   ,"
Molly turned her eyes dully in the
lirection indicated—anything in or-
ler nol to look at Stephen and the
girl . . . .At first, she was conscious
nly of a blur uf black mid white.
Then slowly there emerged, like a
figure oui of her delirium, square,
solidly built shoulders, a squarish,
chestnut bronzed bend, ll face not
given to mirroring readily it- owner's
thoughts and emotions. There wiw
an odd cllWi ..I" mnsslveness, too,
though one could see even nl   thut
distance, that lie wa- hard and sparsely fleshed us n Texas plainsman.
While she continued to -'are with
dreary, unguish-gbized eyes, the man
leaned forward and made some laughing remark to the mugnificenl old
while haired lady in front of him.
Again the suggestion of mass, almost
of cumbrousness.
"That's his motlur," Mrs. Parker
chirped guardedly behind hei hand,
"the highty-tighty one who looks as
If she'd just swallowed u poker . . . '."
The honest little landlady*! smiles
were apl occasionally to be more

EVEN if ii did come a little late to be of the
greatesl benefit to the crops in this district.
there is no gainsaying the fact lhat the moisture
which fell last ->veek end in he form of ruin was a
Godsend tu thi* pari of the west. For many on
the land il will mean that instead of entire failure
of the crops there will be something to harvest, and
continued moisture under favorable conditions may
even mean that grain crops can approach the
average. ( hi the western prairies where the crops
were nol fai forward, the rain has meant that
fairlj good crop: can be looked for, and the benefit iron: such a condition as this does not need any
explanation in this district, Apart from this, forest
fires which had been threatening to spread, fanned
by the high wind . were extinguished, with an immense aviny to the government and tin- people
in general.
'IIn nnimer rains are essential to the welfare
uf the iii trict, and jusl what they mean, expressed
in dollai and cents gives rise to the expression
thai il wa a "million dollar rain." ll was. literally,
ami worth more than a million a thai.
THE bu ine man or merchant who refuses to
make use <-i the newspaper for carrying hi*
printed mi age because he knows "it doesn'l pay,"
or becau ■ a   some other plan for advertising,
invariably ' i 'i.i idea Lhal he is a pioneer in tliat
way of thinking. On the contrary, however, there
is uot an angle ul the advertising game that has
not In < ii gone intu by men who havi- made the
analyst; of advertising their life study. It has all
been gone ovci with the minuteness of a microscopical examination, and the result of all ihis experience
is thai newspaper advertising today is still predominant "■' r all other methods that can he employed to tell the story.
I he person who suffers most when newspaper
space i> not made use of is the person whu should
be using that space. When other means are used
to do the advertising that the newspapers should
have it is obvious that the question becomes simply
une ol tin method tt. be employed. The fact that
other step   are taken indicates  that  the need fur
ad ver is ing itself is felt. Handbills arc sometimes
distributed, but no method has yet been devised that
gives the coverage of the newspaper. The leakage in
the handbill system starts right at the beginning—
a good many never go out of the post offices, or if
il is a house to house distribution, just as many
of them never get in the house. If the housewife is
not just ready tu take it up and study it, the bill
yets put aside—and sometimes stays put aside. The
newspaper on the oiher hand goes into the houses
one hundred per cent. If it does not, there are enquiries for it, but whoever enquires for a bill that
was supposed to be dropped at the door, or put in
the post office? It has been likened to an attempt
to get into the confidence of the housewife covertly,
instead of using the wide open method ut approach
provided  by the newspaper.
Don't let your advertising enter the house by
stealth, have it go there with the full force of frankness. Put it in the newspaper, and it will be read
when the whole family is in the best state of mind
to assimilate it all.
ANOTHER agrarian government goes on trial
this month, when tlu* Alberta general elections
will be held. It is the coming of age of the prairie
province, the provincial government there lieing set
up twenty-one years ago. Por years, up to the
tune of the accession of the Partners' party to the
seal of power, the province had a Liberal government. The blame for the state of affairs ihere can
be apportioned between them any way at all, it certainly cannot be blamed on the Conservatives, for
they have never held power in Alberta. Hut the
fact remains that at the same time the young province assumes manhood's years, as it were, it also
falls heir tu a deht of upwards of eighty million
dollars, which has been accumulated in those years,
from the time the government of the day started out
with a clean sheet.
ll would surprise few people if the government of Alberta went the same way as the governmenl ui" Ontario, where the farmers' party were
swept into oblivion, and the Conservative party took
uver the reins of office, with a clear majority uver
all others. There is mi question but that the feature
of the Alberta campaign up to the present has been
tin; rejuvenation of the Conservative parly, which
now has a candidate in every one of the sixty odd
ridings. A. A. McGtllivray, an able Calgary lawyer,
has assumed the leadership of the party, and his
campaign has been a Strong une. The Liberals have
had difficulty in the matter of leadership, and finally
fell back on J, T. Shaw, of Calgary, whu was in the
last federal election defeated in Calgary by Hun.
R, li. Bennett, when Capt. Shaw was running as an
independent. Among the farmer ranks themselves,
it is questioned whether the breach caused by the
abdication of the former premier, E. W. Greenfield,
lias been entirely Healed.

Herald office thus week the 1926
Graduation Number of the Viewpoint, the magazine issued by the
student body of the Cranbrook High
School, The magazine contains fifty-
two pages, and its contents are well
up to the standard of any previous
issue, and possibly a little more interesting to the larger student body.
In addition to two or three good
stories by members of the student
body, and also some poetical effort]
there are interesting reviews of the
members of the faculty us written
from the student angle, and particularly pertaining to the third yeur,
or graduating class, is the sketchy
note on each member, which makes
very entertaining reading, along with
the class history, and the cluss will.
Athletics nuturnlly form ti prominent section of the muguzine, the
school having made an enviable reputation for itself in this respect in
the past season, in more directions
thun one. Tins Is reflected in the
illustration shown of the truck team
of the high school, along with the
cups and medals they huve won,
which miike a particularly good
showing. Another illustration shows
the basketball team, which bus proved
utmost unbeatable, and u third picture shows the entire graduation
cluss in a composite photograph, with
the school in the centre. A goodly
portion of school humor at the buck
of the magazine rounds out an interesting number. On the front cover is blazoned in three colors the
shield of the Cranbrook High School
picked out in gold outline.

in-chief of the Viewpoint, and hus

well be proud. According to the list

The magazine hus been fairly generously supported by advertisers '
in the city, and the production of the
book made another of the sizeable

visiting her parents at the Coast.
Messrs. Oyer Elderhing utid John
Molr returned to Wardner on Friday evening from Lethbridge, where
they motored on Wednesday to witness the big football match between
the Lethbridge picked team and the
English All Stars, now touring this
country. The hoys report tho match

The third ball game of the Bull
River-Wardner junior baseball series
was secheduled for Friday evening
of last week, but owing-to that dote
already being taken for the basketball games between Fort Steele and]
Wardner, the basebull game was post-
poned until Friday evening of this j
week, weather and others conditions,

A petition is being circulated in
town regarding the building of the
new Club Hall which has been planned on during the past few months.
The new hall is to be used for indoor
sports as u general club room and
danco hull, etc., and is expected to
cost in the neighborhood of $3000.00.
The employees' club have set.aside
$400.00 to be used in starting the
building if the petition goes through.
A baseball team comprised of
members from Waldo und Baynes,
motored to Wardner on Sunday uf-
ternoon for the purpose of playing
a gome against the local nine. Batteries for the day were; Waldo, Uilts
and McNab; Wardner, Dow and B.
Embree.    The local team was mainly
a pick-up team, several new recruits
being tried out, and making a food
showing for themselves, among these
being Harold Anderson und Rollie
Thompson, who, for the first time,
mude their appearance on tho "big
team," although they have played on
the junior team for some years. Wesley Montgomery also made his initial
appearance with the big team, all
three of these doing well indeed.
The score of the game went high for
the locul team, who won the game
easily by 21-9. Home (runs wore
mude by Ben Embree und Prank
Thompson, the latter knocking one
of the longest hits ever known on tin-
home diamond. Had Prank bail a
little less weight to cany, or could be
huve run a little faster, by the way,
he could easily have made three borne
runs during the game, so spectators
declare. Several 2nd nnd 3rd base-
hits were made, while almost every
butter up succeeded in knocking the
bull for a base or two. .lack Dow
pitched a good, steady game, fanning
Ids men time ami again. Three ol
the regular, ami best, players on the
team were absent—Harry and Sam
Thompson ami Iteg. Reed being out
of town—but according to tho final
tally Wurdner managed just aa well.
Rather a small number of spectators
turned out to witness the game, no
notice being given oui previously,
but a collection amounting to about
eleven dollars wus taken. This mokea
Wurdner's second win over Waldo,
the first victory taking place ll
month earlier.

A lucky year—l«S-lor Peter De-
Paolo, twenty-six year old nephew of
Ralph DePalma Ever since Peter
tied his baby's shoes to the front
springs of his Duesenberg he has finished in the money. To see his little
Number 12 nose out in front of the
veterans at Indianapolis and stay there.
was a thrill that comes only once in a
life time. To take those four short
terrible turns of thc brick saucer with
out juggling the accelerator wasn't done
for Death doesn't like to be kidded.
But led by two tiny baby shoei
young Pete knew that there was nothing in front but victory and so—
didn't bother to lift his accelerator foot
from the floor, turn or no turns. Sheer
guts and a mechanically perfect car
won that race.
Peter, when he visited me in Chicago
on his way back frum Italy, iold ma
that he would be able to achieve tha
unhearl of speed of one hundred and
forty live miles an hour on the Culver
City Howl in California Thanksgiving
Day. As Pete is a modest young man
his statement bears considerable weight.
It is doubly emphatic in view of thc
fact that this year's A. A. A. champion
—little Peter, himself, turned the Culver Bowl in Competition last April at
1397 miles per hour, which, as the
world knows, is moving right along.
One hundred mid t'orty-fivc miles an
hour is nearly four miles faster than
the mile straightaway record for 122-
inch cars. So you sec what automobile progress  is doing,
Front drive machines and balloon
tire? were tbe innovations al this
year's Indianapolis race. The front
drive cars have been taking the turns
belter, and manufacturers claim it won't
lie long now before passenger cars are
built along similar lines.
Doa't get the idea that race pilots
strive constantly to set up new speed
records. They don't I Their object is
to win the race, and good pilots, like
experienced baseball pitchers, win their
contests with brains and control as
much as by speed.
Wild stories of the immense earn
iogs of race pilots startle tbe world
into believing that automobile racing
in easy money. But there k no pilot
who earns one-tenth enough to wai
other car. liven then the chaacts are
hint. Every so often some plot cap
tures a big race with a big prste. But
there are hundreds of pilots and only
a few big purses. And yet each "f
the race entrants is conhilent>of win
ning "first money". And ever? oue o(
them is planning just how he will <ipend
that money. There isn't a more op
timistic crowd in the workL
The chap who wins the grrat races
today is the fellow who is bmmt at the
tricks of the trade. Witness Tommy
Milton—two-time winner of the Indianapolis classics—who in nine mt
of ten races will finish in the money
Or, Ralph DePalma, idol of the ractos
fans. Ralph has been unfortunate of
late years but even so he bangs his
, dmirers to their feet with a gaap by
some sort of superior driving.
Accidents? These, of course, are to
be expected.
The race pilot must naturally be a
fatalist. When his turn comes to be
kissed by the icy lips of death he wants
to be gripping the wheel of thr fastest
car in the world, with his foot shoving
Ihe throttle wide open. He wants the
bands to be playing, and the crowd t
say—when the ambulance hauls him
away—"The drivin' fooll"
Statistics prove that a pilot who goes
through twenty races unscatliered has
passed the favorable balance. Hut then
the percentage is against him. At any
moment the dice may turn—lor they
are dice—wheeled dice—that leave the
loser no chance to recoup.
No rhauce? Yes, thc chances mc trti

P.   E.   1.   Fisheries
In one of my contributions I referred to thc fact of fish being the
staple food of nil nations. Fish is
nlso the source of the wealth of many
countries. Canada has two of tho
greatest sources of wealth and is
most deserving of every possible protection.
Even at so distant a date as 1040,
thriving- fisheries wero carried on by
the Scots. In 1482 the English fisheries formed n considerable part of
the national wealth. In Henry VlIPs
time the fishing town- of the oust
coast were bronchi under statutory
regulation. In 1663 Spain agreed to
pay un annual sum of <>n<' thousand
pounds for permission to fish off the
Irish const. Strangers were prohibit-1
ed from fishing In English seas by a
proclamation of Charles I in 1086.
Tho Dutch paid thirty' thousand in
1686 for the privilege of using tho
English fisheries, and in 1G60 Sweden obtained liberty to employ one!
thousand   vessel-   in   Hritish   waters, i
So on to the nineteenth century
regularly laws were enacted in the
British Islands for the purpose of
protecting the fisheries.
Early Conflict With U.S.
We now come to Canadian waters.
The Washington Treaty in the year
18T0 marks the beginning of an important perioil in the history of the
relations of Canada with the United
States. The question of the fisheries
had been unsettled since the treaty
of 17811, giving the fishermen of the
United States certain fishing rights
off the shores of Newfoundland ami
other portions of British North America. The pent was raised whether
these privileges were cancelled by the
war of 1812-14. The contention of
the United Slates was that the treaty
of 178.'! was perpetual as to fishing
privileges, just as it was perpetual
as to independence. The British enforced their claims under protest
from the United States until ISI8,
when a convention was made between the two countries hy which
American fishermen were allowed to
share in the inshore fisheries on certain British coasts and were excluded
from others.
By the abrogation of the Elgin
Treaty in 180(3 the parties were
thrown back to the convention of
1818. To'prevent friction it was
then agreed that annual licences
should be issued to fishermen of the
United States on payment of a nominal fee. At first a considerable number of licences were taken out, but
when the fee was increased in 1868
there wot* much fishing without licence.
On January  8th,   1870, the Can
adian government abolished the licence system and sent a fleet of
cruisers to protect the fisheries.
Seizures of American vessels were
made, and there was much irritation.
President Grant, in liis annual message to Congress in 187U severely
criticized the action of the Canadian
Later Settlement
There were other causes of friction, Canada had a claim on the
United Stales arising out of the
Fenian raids. At the same time the
United States claimed damages
against Great Britain for the loss to
American shipping caused by the escape of the Alabama from the Laird
shipbuilding company at Birkenhead,
opposite Liverpool, although the
guns and other material were put on
hoard at Madeira, as well as her
crew, who were southerners.
In liis speeeli defending tho Washington Treaty In 1872, Sir John Macdonald said that as long as the Alabama question remained open, Great
Britain was seriously weakened in
dealing with other powers. Kg feared thai the Alabama question might
be pressed just when Great Britain
was engaged in mortal combat with
some other nation. The Johnson-
Clarendon Treaty intended to settle
this dispute hud boen rejected by the
senate of the United States; Great
Britain could not with self-respect
have re-opened the question of the
Alabama. Sir John Macdonald said
thai the fishing question was regarded by Great Britain as furnishing an
opportunity for indirectly re-opening
the Alabama question. The invitation
was made by the British ambassador
to consider the fishing question. The
United States—by a quiet and friendly understanding between the two
powers—replied acceding lo the request, on condition that the larger
and graver matters of dispute were
also made a matter of negotiation.
In 1870 Hon. Alexander Campbell
was sent to England to consult tlie
imperial government concerning tlie
proposed withdrawal of troops from
Canada, the question of lortificn-,
tions, tbe invasion of Canadian ter-1
ritory by citizens of the United
States, the systematic trispas^es on
the Canadian fishing grounds hy United States fishermen and the unsettled question as to thc limits within
which foreigners could fish under the
treaty  of   1SI8.
The British government suggested
the appointment of a joint high commission to discuss questions which
had arisen out of thc fisheries, as
well as all those wliich affected the
relations of tlie United States and

lnvermere, B.C., June 12th.—
To the President and Members of the

Gentlemen: Touching on the operations of the Board for the last
year it may be said that no general
meeting of the members was held
since the date of tbo Uth annual
meeting, which was held on the 2nd
of July last year. There not being
any special business to lay before
the Board as a body wns the chief
reason for not calling any meeting
in the interval.
Since your last annual meeting,
however, several gatherings of thc
residents of the district have taken
place linden the auspices of the
Board. One of these was that called
on the 21st of September, 1026,
which resulted in the formation of
a loeal colonization association. Just
a few duys prior to that we had nn
informal discussion with Superintendent Plett, of the C.P.R,, relative to
a proposal to change tin- time in the
operating of the trains. The change
was thought to he a retrograde movement ami when it was pointed out to
