To Beautify
Proposals   Made   to   Make
Boulevards and Plant
city council is Inking stops
lain what the nttitudo of the
people of the city generally is on
tho matter of beautifying ftto prin.
ri|inl streets Willi boulevards ami
lift's. A proposal for ropavlng Bn-
kor Sheet includes a suggestion to
boulevard tho centre, much the game
M tbe main street in the town of
Hantr, with which many Crunbrook
people are familiar. It would consist of ii green plot extending the
longtli of each block, a break being
made at street intersections and
wherever it might be considered wine
to allow for traffic to turn. Tbe proposal to treat Baker .Street in this
way ia occasioning a great deal of
comment, opinion not being unanimous ns to the wisdom of it. It ia
felt by some thut it would be better
to pave the entire length of the
street and allow as much space for
parking cars as possible.
For some of the residential streets
the proposal the city council is making is to undertake ploughing and
grading of a portion of the street
adjoining the sidewalks, which would
be made into boulevards, and they
will also provide one tree per lot,
the cost to include this being $5.00
per lot. Additional trees can be had
if desired, or if the property holder
or occupier desires to undertake the
work of preparing the ground and
planting the trees, they can be supplied at the cost of $1.00 each. Circulars announcing this proposal were
distributed last week-end throughout
the city, and an effort has been made
to obtain replies from as many as
possible, so that the council may be
guided in its actions along these
lines, Following is a copy of the circular which was distributed to residents on the subject:

CRANBROOK,  B.C.,  THURSDAY,   MARCH    4th.   1926
^N»-    iERS BEING
"The Pill Bottle" Given By
ut W. M. S. b of
Unuiual Interest
Despite its somewhat uninviting
name, "The Pill Bottle," the play put
on by the ladies of the Women's Mis
flion Circle of the Baptist Church attracted a capacity house at the church
on Thursday evening last. Judging
from the standpoint nf attendance
and the fact that the voluntary collection of $40.00 was twice as much
it. the ladies expected, it was a success, und still than*' who saw it and
heard it were disappointed—disappointed that it had not heen heard
and seen hy muny more people of
Cranbrook, who like themselves
would have enjoyed it. That there
is this demand for a repetition is assuredly the highest compliment that
can he paid to the many ladies and
a few gentlemen who were responsible for the staging of this interesting and most instructive missionary
Tha  Million of  tho  Play
Having witnessed the play it would
be difficult to conceive of any way
to better attain the object sought
by it, namely, to stimulate an. interest in missions, so that one might
feel it a duty and a privilege to give
to missions; and what is more important possibly, made to feel it a
particular duty to minister to the
physical and spiritual wants of only
a few of the many millions who need
them, a work which has been said
by some to be the biggest business
in life.
The play depicts in a unique way
conditions in India, tending to show
that the depths to which some of its
people have reached, physically, socially and spiritually, must be attributed to their treatment of women. Its child-marriages, its superstitions, its adherence to Hinduism
and to its caste system, all tend
to make the work of the Christian
missionary difficult.
The Metamorphom of Barbara
The first scene of the play is in
New York, where four college girl
graduates are seen previous to dispersing for their particular spheres
of endeavor. Barbara Lane, one of
the four, leaves on a two months'
visit to her parent*, who are missionaries in India, before taking up her
life work as a scientific interior decorator or house manager. In this
act, as throughout the whole play,
Mrs. A. D. Bridges as Barbara takes
the leading part in a very creditable
manner, her work at all times being
very sympathetic. In this first scene
she is ably assisted by her girl chums,
Helen, Francis and Jane, better
known locally as Mrs. E. Birce, Mrs.
W.  D, Gilroy and Mr*.  H.  Hinton.
The second scene goes to the home
of Barbara's parent* in India, where
Barbara, after getting a true vision
of things and seeing the need for
her services, decided to give up her
chosen vocation and return. In this
scene Mrs. K. C. Kuhnert, as Barbara's mother, lost none of her well
earned stage reputation, the hard
working missionary's wife being depicted in a most realistic manner.
l>r. Lane, the medical missionary,
and father of Barbara, was well taken by Mr. J, L. Palmer, who seemed
just as much at home in clericul garb
as in other stage garbs.
The third scene, four years later,
finds Barbara a full-fledged medical
missionary, back in India. Her patients' waiting room is the place
where the scene is staged. Here
dozens of natives with many bodily
ailments come for treatment. About
fifteen of the patient parte were
taken by members Of the missionary
society, and all did their part  well.
The many sit ual ions created are
very humorous, nn<| at the name time
give one a true insight into the condition of life in India, Their superstitious and their caste syhtem are
all truly portrayed. The garb of
the native women makes the scene
a pretty one.
The fourth scene wm a short one,
but Wat well acted, Mrs. A. D.
Bridges an Barbars ind Mm. A. K.
Gray as the outcast and Mrs. W. S,
Haynes as the Bible woman, taking
their parts in a very creditable man*
ner. Following the play a collection
was taken up which amounted to the
sum of $40.00.
Those  Reipoaiiblo
Between the acta Mrs. F. Constantino gave some very interesting aide-
lights on the mission work, whereby
the play was better understood.
To Mrs. Constantino is due a large
share of the credit for the success
of the play, she having the arduous
duty of drilling the members in their
parts. The complete cast was as

Better times are in sight for the
Crow's Nest Pass mining camps. It
is understood the McGilllvray Creek
Coal and Coke Company of Coleman
have secured an order from the C.
P. R, for 400,000 tons of cool, deliveries to start April 1. This will
give the McGHllvray mine a steady
summer run.
Additional orders from the C.P.R.,
who will commence shortly to store
coal in their* dumps on the prairies,
will be plocod with other Pass mines
shortly, it is learned, a total of 700,-
000 tons remaining to be contracted
for. Blalrmore, Bellevue and 11 ill-
crest, as well as Coleman, will share
in the much-needed prosperity in the
coal industry, and an active summer
is in sight after a sluggish winter.
Conditions jn the Pass camps have
been giving grave concern. There
has been considerable suffering because of enforced idleness, the coal
companies lacking sufficient orders to
keep their mines operating at anything like normal production. Feeling the pinch severely at Blalrmore,
the miners through their local union
recently applied to the provincial
government for relief.
The International Coal and Coke
Co., of Coleman, have also secured a
big contract from the C.P.R.
Range  Difficulties  Will  Be
More Easily Adjusted as
Law Now Stands
At a recent meeting of the Cranbrook and District Stock Breeders'
Association, Mr. T. P. McKenzie, of
Victoria, was present, and was the
principal speaker, dealing with the
status of the St. Mary's range and
the matter of stock said/to be illegally running at large there.
In the course of his remarks Mr.
McKenzie apologised for more strenuous action on range clean-up having
been delayed, stating that there had
existed some confusion between the
Grazing Act, the Trespass Act and
the Animals' Act, and also a need
for one or two amendments that
would clear up ambiguous clauses or
place greater powers in the stock
associations und range authorities in
regulating such   matters.
These changes were accomplished
at the last session and the policy of
disposal of animals illegally on the
rang*1 had been simplified very much.
Replying to questions he stated that
the requirements of B legal fence
hail been modified from the former
very elaborate type required to a
simpler style in the case of all fences
except railway boundaries and stock
He went very thoroughly into all
the recent amendments, explaining
the need and significance for each,
and stated that his office wished to
give every facility to all organized
bodies of stock owners in the protection and improvement of their
lock and the range. He hoped lo
find an outlet for the otherwise
worthless horses now crowding the
ranges of B.C., which would at least
reimburse the costs spent in rounding them up either through disposal
for horse meat to he slaughtered and
hilled at Vancouver for shipment
to Europe or by sale to contractors
looking for horses for the Turkish
government. (In the latter he expected to have definite information
by March  1st.
The work of ridding the Chilcotem
anil other ranges of wild horses disposed of over two thousand last year
at a cost of about two dollars per
head, and action is determined on
here hy the local stockmen as soon as
possible. A committee was appointed
to confer with Mr. McKenzie after
the meeting and sat till midnight
completing details of the preparatory
work to he undertaken.
Several farmers emphasised their
opinion that in broken districts such
as Kast Kootenay, where Crown land
and open private land were mixed
up so confusingly, nothing short of
complete control of all open range
would ever give satisfactory conditions in the range stock business here.
Mr. McKenzie dill not dispute the
statement, but felt the time had not
yet arrived for such action.
Before leaving Mr. McKenzie stated he hoped to return to assist in
the work to be undertaken this

Local Talent Promises Triumph in Musical Comedy
Now Under Way
The musical comedy, "The Beauty
Shop," which is to be put on under
the auspices of the Cranbrook Gyro
Club, Thursday, Friday and Sat unlay,
March llth, 12th and Kith, promises
to lie the finest local production yet
staged in Cranbrook. In presenting
this show the Gyro Club have sot u
precedent hy bringing in Mr. C, II.
Lewis, a man who has had between
twenty ana1 thirty years' experience
in theatrical work. Mr. Lewis has
brought with him over two hundred
costumes, as well as scenery. Those
who have seen Mr, Lewis at work
can only marvel at his energy, by
working with the cast as a whole, as
individuals and In choruses about
twelve hours a day, he has the show
well in hand. The show abounds in
comedy and action, there is never a
dead minute, and if the house is not
packed for the three nights it is running it will not be on account of lack
of quality. The leading character,
that of the Beauty Doctor, is being
taken by Mr. Chester Staples of Wycliffe, the busy lawyer by Mr. Austin
MacDonald, Miss Francis Drummond
will star as the stenographer in love
with the lawyer. Miss Ila Slye and
Mr. Stewart Black will bring many
laughs as bashful lovers, Mrs. Marsden of Kimberley, Mr. Frank Marsh,
Miss Grace Higgins, Mrs. Elder, Mrs.
Mcintosh, Miss Thelma Pelkey, Miss
Bessie Woodman, Miss ftweji Slye,
Mr. Les Dwelley, Mr. Shankland, Mr.
Bert Dobson and Mr. Ray Beech also
star in individual parts.
The whole cast has been wonderfully well chosen for their individual
parts und the chorus is the finest
that has yet been heard in Cranbrook.
Much latent talent is being brought
out and Cranbrook theatregoers are
assured of an evening of mirth and
melody such as never before been
presented here.
The seat sale is much in advance
of expectations and Kimberley is attending "en masse," having chartered
a special train for Thursday evening,
March llth; this will also accomodate those from Wycliffe deslrlous
of attending. For the benefit of
Kimberley residents the Gyro Club
of Cranbrook, through their sister
lub in Kimberley, have opened the
seat sale in Kimberley in advance
of the Cranbrook seat sale, for
Thursday evening, but to give Cranbrook residents an equal chance on
reservations, only tickets for every
other row were sent Kimberley, leaving half the house for Cranbrook.
Any of the rows sent Kimberley and
not sold out will be on sale together
with full houses for Friday and Saturday nights at Beattic-Noble Drug
Store, eight o'clock Saturday morning, March 6th.
At the first meeting of the new
directors, following the annual meeting, it was decided to extend the
privileges of the Club to all students
between, the ages of 16 and 19 for
an annual fee of five dollars. Any
students desiring to avail themselves
of the*1 privileges should make application to the secretary and enclose the annual fee.
• • • •
It was also decided to charge any
member of the Kimberley Golf Club
who may desire to enjoy the privilege of our club an annual fee of
ten dollars,
• • • •
Owing to the  heavy  expenditure
which will be necessary for completing the new course the directors decided to postpone putting in tenuis
courts at present. It was also decided to continue the sale of shares.
Another important decision was to
allow applicants for playing privileges to pay their dues in two instalments, thus cutting thu season in
two; the second half to commence
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^   from July 1st.   All those applicants

j The city of Fernie lost in their
appeal from the decision of Magistrate G. G. Henderson ia the Parri
liquor case.
Reasons for Judgement by His
Honor .Judge Thompson:
"This is an appeal by the Crown
from the judgement of G. G. Henderson, Esquire, police magistrate in
and for the City of Fernie, County
of Kootenay, Province of British Columbia.
"The facta may be stated briefly:
A man by the name of Vincent ftatos
thai he entered into negotiations with
the accused {respondent) Petri for
the purchase of four bottles of prewar whiskey for the sum of twenty
dollars. Pursuant to this agreement
he met the accused on the evening of
the 16th January at the Grand Central Hotel, a hotel owned and conducted by the accused. There, he
states he received the liquor and gave
a cheque for twenty dollars; payment of which he subsequently stopped. Nothing more is heard about
the cheque. When he left the hotel
currying the liquor he was met by
the Chief of Police, Charles Anderson, who seized the liquor, retaining
three bottles. One bottle was thrown
away and destroyed by Vincent. Vincent was then arrested. The evidence
is practically silent as to what happened to him after that.
"On the same evening the Chief of
Police met Perri at the Grand Central
Hotel by arrangement and searched
the premises; no liquor was found.
"Perri denies the whole story and
states that in his opinion the liquor
was purchased, if at all, from a man
by the name of Enoch Neuert, who
was living at his hotel. He denies
any knowledge whatsoever of the
liquor and says that he never had it
and knows nothing at all about it.
"Neuert denies selling the liquor,
and claims to have had no knowledge whatsoever of the alleged sale.
"Mr. Horchmer moves for a dismissal of the appeal on the following
grounds: firstly, that the only direct
evidence of sale is that of an accomplice; secondly, that the evidence of
Perri is an absolute denial to which
credence should be given by the
:ourt; thirdly, that in any event the
accused person is entitled to the
benefit of any doubt which I may
"Mr. Fisher moves fo. a conviction
on the ground that evidence having
been given by Vincent of the possession of the Hquor by the accused it
is for the accused to prove affirmatively and beyond all doubt that he
was not guilty of the offence. In aid
of this contention he cites and relies
on Section 91 of the Government
Liquor Act. In fact his whole case
depends on the construction I may
place upon Section 91.
The evidence of Vincent was not
particularly convincing. 1 doubt very
much if a man of his experience
ould hope to buy pre-war whiskey
for five dollars un imperial quart.
Secondly, it is rather an unusual
thing for a man purchasing from a
bootlegger to pay by cheque. Thirdly, if his story is true, he is an accomplice and the evidence of an accomplice must be looked upon with
grave suspicion. Fourthly, the natural attitude of a man purchasing
Hquor illegally is to blame some per-
n who would be naturally subject
to suspicion rather than the real vendor. His whole attitude throughout
his evidence was not convincing.
"On the other hand the evidence of
Perri. while much more definite than
that of Vincent, is open to grave suspicion. The fact that the lights were
put out or burnt out when he and
Vincent came downstairs, and the
fact that he went upstairs with Vincent all tend to show a line of guilty
"The whole case, however, comes
down to the one proposition-—there
being some evidence, however weak,
whereby the onus is cast upon the
accused by virtue uf Section 91, can
he invoke the principles of Rex vs.
Schauta and Abramovitch. N'Hmely,
that there being a reasonable doubt
the accused is entitled to it notwithstanding the section, or he must
prove beyond doubt that he is not
guilty of the offence charged,
"This Section has been considered
in a great many cases during the
last few years, and these cases I propose to consider."
After quoting precedents, the
judge gave a decision dismissing the
appeal and reserved the question of
for same privileges must be handed
to the secretary this season, from
whom application forms may be secured.

On Sunday afternoon at 1.30
O'clock the directors will meet at the
Cranbrook Hotel and proceed to the

the possibility of securing water.

r con
Takes   Part   in   Four-Club
Series From All Sections
of Province
According to telegrams which
passed back and forth between Kimberley and Victoria, the matter of
playing oft the finals for the intermediate hockey championship of the
Coast was in the air for a time. There
seemed t.. be little hope of being
able to play off the game which would
definitely decide whether Kimberley
can lay claim to the championship or
not Immediately following tht
Greenwood-Kimberley games in ('ran
brook lost week, the Kimberley
club got in touch by wire with Mr.
Watson, who la president of the
B.C. Hockey Association, asking
where the final game was likely to be
played. Mr. Watson replied us
Victoria, B.C
W. B. Caldwell,
Kimberley Hockey Club.
Impossible  complete  lnternv
finals Interior account   weather
ditions,    Propose hold champ
tournament   Vancouver   b e t w e e n
Prince George, Endorby, Kimberley.
Scaforths,   Will your team to Coast
on own expense divide receipts from
each   team.     Reply   immediately.
At that time when it was said weather conditions prevented the play-
ir, there was perfectly good Ice to
be  had   in  the  Mast   Kootenay  and
probably   at   West   Kootenay   points,
I most likely also at other interior
places,     Nevertheless,   looking   for
ne  further  information  in  regard
the proposal  for a series, the following wire was sent to Victoria:
Kimberley, B.C.,
Feb. 25th,  1926.
Percy Watson.
President,   B.C.H.A.,
Victoria.  B.C.
Wire estimated amount our share
receipts proposed series.
W.  B. Caldwell,
Pres., Kimberley Hockey Club.
To    this   wire   a   somewhat    discouraging   reply   was   received.
Victoria,  B.C.,
Feb. 26th, 1926.
W. B. Caldwell,
Kimberley,   B.C.
Account other Attraction^ receipts
likely small, cannot estimate answer
Taking into account tha: i\ would
cost approximately $1,500.00 to send
the Kimberley team to the Coast
Kimberley naturally felt justified in
asking for some reasonable guarantee
towards this amount. It was stated
that they would not mind going behind possibly $800.00 or 9400.00, but
they could not expect to go much
beyond this. An alternative proposition was therefore made to meet
the winners of the proposed series
at  Rossland as follows:
Kimberley.   B.C.,
Feb. 25th. 1626.
Percy Watson,
President,  B.C.H.A.,
Victoria. B.C.
Unable to go to Coast without 50 me
guarantee.    We art* prepared to meet
winners in  Rossland, where good ice
and reasonable gate assured.
W. B. Caldwell.
This apparently did not meet with
approval, the understanding at Coast
being that  condition.- in  West  Kootenay were not good for playing, this
opinion being expressed in the following wire:
Victoria, B.C.,
Feb. 25th, 1926.
W.  B.  Caldwell,
Kimberley.  B.C.
Advice from West Kootenay play-
if  conditions   and  support   do   not
warrant  intermediate  games   there.
There the matter rested for a day
two, but not for long.    At the end
of the week the real sports got busy
in Kimberley, and by Saturday night
had  money enough   subscribed   i>>
business men and others In  Kimbcr-
guarantei  the  expfcnbea  of
the team going to the Coast to take
part   in   the   Intermediate   -eries  arranged.    Over $1,000  was raised  in
this  way,   and  the   Kimberley    boys
left   on   Wednesday,   ready   to   play
their first game on Friday

Hanson Garage Stage Demonstration of Ford, McLaughlin and Oldsmobile
At tho funeral of the late Thomas
Caven, who died at Vancouver on
February 20th, which took place in
Vancouver on Wednesday of last
week, there was a very strong representation    of    former    residents    of
Cranbrook who were well acquainted
with the late Mr. Caven. .'services
were held in the chapel of an undertaking parlor, and many extremely
beautiful and pretentious floral tributes were in evidence. The funeral
was conducted under the auspices of
on*   of    the    Vancouver    Mu»iuir
Friday nnd Saturday of last week
the citizens of Cranbrook were given
in idea of what a real motor show
- like when on those days the Ban-
ion Garage held the floor of the Au-
litorlum for the purpose of showing
the particular cars which they were
offering for sale. While necessarily
the number of ears was limited by
the sise of the building ns well as
by the number of makes handled by
the one place of business, still the
■-how was a revelation to many.
Mr. MacPherson, the popular manager of the Hanson Garage, is being
congratulated on the success of his
enterprise, the venture being not a
small one by any means. Nothing
was left undone to make the a (fair
a success and a source of pleasure
to all. whether they were intending
purchasers or not It is estimated,
that two thousand people, both from
the city and district, visited the ex-
hlbitlon on the two days, h fact which
naturally attribute to the liberal
unt of printers' ink used by the
For days previous to the show the
tatl" of the Hanson garage had been
lusy grooming up their show birds,
nany of which had but lately arrived. To their activity is due much
f the credit for the .spick and span
appearance of the many models
On  entering the  hall  each  visitor
ua>  asked  to  sign  a  card  with  his
r her name and address; these cards
were at the dose of the show put in
box and a drawing made, the lucky
inner,  Mrs.   Harry   Lee,  being  the
recipient of $15.00.
Whether they had any hope or in-
ention of purchasing a car everyone
ook much pleasure in examining the
models of the different makes which
were on display; these were, starting
on the right, as follows:
A Ford truck, on which was a
body built by G. Leask & Sons, Ford
Light Delivery, Ford Runabout, Ford
Coupe, Ford Special Touring, Fordor
or. the platform, McLaughlin-Buick
Big Six Master Sedan Four Door,
.McLaughlin-Buick .Special Sedan
Four Door, Oldsmobile Four Door
Sedan, Oldsmobile Coach, Ford Tudor.
The stage presented a most attractive appearance with the Ford
Sedan breaking its way through the
26 paper wall and driven by Miss
Jarley. To the left of the stage
of the new Flex Lume Mc-
Lauglin-Buick signs valued at approximately $200.00, even in the
brilliantly lighted hall it's unique
illuminating effect attracting to it
much attention. The floral decorations on the platform and throughout
the hall added a finishing touch to
tht- whole ihow. Whether or not
one Is more easily persuaded when
under the influence of music we do
not know, but in any event the pre-
;ence of the Robbuon orchestra on
Friday evening and the Bluebird orchestra on Saturday evening was
much appreciated.
As a result of the show practically all the car- on display were sold.
Besides the cars there was also to
be seen a very creditable display of
the many products of the Imperial
Oil Company, under the supervision
of that company's district representative, Mr. Brodie, of Nelson; while
through a very effective display at
the rear of the hall, Mr. C. B. Cocks,
f Calgary, told the world all about
the Goodyear tires and other auto
cessoriei  bundled   by  that  firm.
Ever ready to point out to visitors
the special qualities of the particular
like of cars the following automobile representatives were present at
tiie show, all being particularly
Ford Motor Co., Geo. Nets, Cal-

AFTER many months of uncertainty, not able to
work at anything like full capacity, better
times seem in sight for the coal mines of the Crow's
Nest Pass district. Big orders are being secured,
assuring tvork on a mote continuous scale for many
more miners, and with a bigger output railway men
iu this district will reap some benefit from the increased tonnage rolling to the markets. The project for coal bunkers at Vancouver promises a still
stronger demand for coal from that district, ami
Cranbrook i- more vitally interested iu developments of tlii- kind than is apparent on the surface.
When the raihvaymen are busy, it usually means
that everyone else will be, which in turn means better times all round. The song of tbe wheel on the

carry freight trains laden with potential wealth the
district is giving forth to the world.
so that none would feel it. and there are few who
would not feel like doing something to help the work
along when once the city made a good start on it.
In the light of the questionaire which the city has
been circulating, however, it is apparent lhat the
owner of a couple of lots would have to spend nearly
twenty dollars to get his part of the boulevard prepared and have a few trees planted, while unoccupied or rented property adjoining would be left entirely untouched. In many cases Ihe owners of
property would feel more like putting that sum on

WITH rather a high sounding name, which may
possibly be a detriment instead of a help to il,
a meeting of the mayors of some of the leading
cities of the west met last week iu Vancouver.
An organization was formed known as the Unity
and Development League of Western Canada. The
germ of the idea for its formation originated in
Vancouver, expressing the ambition of the Pacific
Coast port lo be regarded as the logical distributing
point for ihe entire western slope, and beyond, within a reasonable radius. An invitation was extended
to the mayor of this city to attend the meeting of
the league, and though it is most likely quite true
that there wa- little object to be served in having
Cranbrook represented at this lime, it is a movement
that will stand watching. What tbe developments
of the next decade will tiring in the way of growth
in this province not even the seventh son of a seventh
son can predict, but if all the varied lines of endeavor iu the west that have a common interest can
be united and made lo heave together in a united
pull, there is not much that they will not be
able to achieve. When Ihe financial and industrial
preponderance of the country starts to move a little
farther westward, a new era of prosperity ond contentment will dawn  for Canada.
THE move the city council is making towards
beautifying the city by boulevarding some of
the streets is commendable in that it is dictated by
a desire to improve the outward conditions of living
in Cranbrook. Hut whether it will quite achieve
the objects sought is not altogether apparent.
Beautifying a city is not so much a question lhat
should be put up to the individual property holder
or tenant, as ihe goal of a definite policy, gradual
if necessary, but still thorough.
Quite apart from the fact that the cost the
city proposes to levy for undertaking the preliminary work of boulevarding some of the principal
streets seems high, especially for the people who
own two or more lots, there is the possibility that
any who do not see eye to eye with the city council
on the means suggested for beautifying the city can
hold up Ihe scheme, or at least nullify it to a great
INDICATIONS are that another
is going lo go over big, giving
of the superiority of the home made brand of entertainment. There are some outside attractions that
cannot possibly be duplicated in a city of this size.
They are produced in such a way. and on such a
scale as to he mil of reach. A few of these come
to Cranbrook year by year, and are always assured of a good reception. Hut many other outside
shows also come—good though they may be also
and they fall down through some .unanticipated
cause, bringing grief ami despair all round, besides
giving the place a reputation for an tinappreciative-
liess il does not deserve. The local .shows, even
allowing that nol all of them are appreciated as they
hould be, usually do better for all concerned-the
owners of the hall gel better returns, the public get
value for their money. Ihe performers gel a full
measure of enjoyment from their efforts, and some
local cause usually benefits from il all. It makes
for the development of a spirit of community cooperation, for which everyone is the better. I
have more of them.

Mrs. Harry Hammond was a business visitor to Cranbrook between
trains on Thursduy of last week.
All the excitement over the contents of the jar of peas in Martino's
store came to an end ut ten o*elock
on .Saturday, when the peas were
counted by Messrs. Fred Harris and
A. T. Chureher, a total of 2058 peas
being counted. Frank Thompson, with
a guess of 20t!0 came nearest nnd
became winner of the set of table
silver offered as the prize. "It
pays to advertise" has often been
quote, and was proved on Saturday
evening when it was said thut nearly
fifty pounds of the buscuits were
sold by Mr. Martinos, some buying
seven and eight poAinds euch ut different times and making a guess with
each purchase of two pounds. Frunk
Thompson was exceptionally lucky in
that he made only the one guess and
walked off with the silver.
Several Wardnerites, adults and
hildren, have been on the sick list
this week with bad attacks of what
is thought to be 'flu. Townspeople
are beginning to wonder what is coming next.
Charlie Hamrin motored to Cranbrook on Ruturday evening for medi-
eal attention. Three weeks ago
Charlie injured his foot, fracturing
a bone at the socket of the large toe,
for which he will again journey to
Cranbrook on Monday for the purpose of huving an X-ray taken.
Several Wardner dancers motored
to Bull River on Friday evening to
attend the dance put on there by the
Bull River orchestra. A splendid
time is reported to have been had
by those present, nnd the now orchestra, with the addition of the drums,
might easily rival the local orcheBtrus
now playing in the district. Among
those motoring in from Wardner
were Miss Thorn Muir, Pete Hurry,
B. Mnder, Mr. and Mrs. Alec Daye,
Dyer Elderhing. Mr. und Mrs. Tony
Rosieky and Jack Dow.
Misses Annie and Dagmar Willan-
der, of Jaffray, spent Sunday afternoon visiting friends in Wardner, re-
turnig to Jaffray on the evening
Misses Dolly Hornsby left on Friday evening for her home in Caithness, after spending the past week
in Wardner, working at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Reniek.
Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Nelson and
family, of Bull River, motored to
Wardner on Saturday afternoon and
spent a few hours visiting at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. A. Anderson, of the
section house.
The girls of the C.G.I.T. of Wardner are busy practicing this week for
their pageant, which will take place
in the club hull on Tuesday evening,
March 2nd; The pageant is depicting the work of the C.G.I.T. and its
results in the lives of the young
people. There will he no admission
and no collection, All are invited
to attend.
Miss Dagne Nordmark, of the Valley, spent the afternoon and evening of Saturday last, visiting friends
in Wardner, motoring in with Graham Donahoe.
Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Wright were
hosts to a number of friends oa Friday evening at a radio party. Dancing was indulged in hy the young
people and a very enjoyable time
spent  by all.
The first football game of this sen-
son took place on Sunday afternoon,
on the hull grounds, when a team
composed of sawmill men ami one
drawn from the planer ami shinning
department, met to do battle over the
pigskin. Throughout a rtr.'ntimis
game the planer team had everything
pretty much their own way, commencing the game by rushing the goal
of the sawmill and most of the fighting throughout the match taking
place at that end. Four corner kicks
were awarded the planing mill team,
but no goal was scored upon these,
Sam Thompson, who acted as goalkeeper for the sawmill put in good
work at such times. The planer team
was also awarded a penalty kick,
which Sam also blocked very effectively. Ben Embree, playing right
wing for the sawmill team, is very
quick in taking advantage whenever
the ball comes his way and shows
promise of making one of the best
football players in town. Ben scored
the only goal for his team, making a
long run across field and a stiaight
drive to score. The goals for the
planer team numbered three, two of
which were scored by Andy Powell
and the third by Mr. Lees. Mr.
Oversly, sawmill made several good
plays. A number of spectators lined the benches during the gams, and
no doubt many more wouUl have attended had the match been advertised r, little more. Brilliant p'a>s
were made at time? by severs! of the
plaj i r.s on both sides, and tho sawmill
made the planer team fight te win
th^ match, which they did by three
goals to one. A. F, Chureher acted
as referee.
In last week's edition of the Herald we reported that the Volley Ball
tournament stood at that tima in a
it», for the shipping department and
planing mill teams, each with two
games won, and one lost. We have
since been informed of our mistake
and the winning team so far, is that
of Dyer Elderhing, who have four
games to their credit.
Messrs. Frank Leard and Gus Carlson spent Thursday in Cranbrook,
motoring in during the day.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Holton and Mr.
and Mrs. Fred Wynne motored to
Cranbrook on Thursday evening*. Mrs.
Wynne remained in town overnight
with friends, returning to Warder on
Friday evening.
Final arrangements for th" bean
supper, to be held in the Club Hall
on Thursday evening of this week in
aid of the Crippled Children's Solarium, have been completed, and on
Wednesday last Mrs. Geo. Sinclair
and Mrs. Frank Thompson were
around soliciting donations for the
feast.    The   canvassing   proved   e.\-
ptionally successful and the ladies'
lists were quickly covered with promises of plenty of good things to eat.
Musical numbers have also been arranged to take place during the evening, so it is hoped that it large crowd
will reward the towns-ladies' efforts
to make the affair a success.
Mrs. Jack Guest left on Thursday
evening's train for Cranbrook, where
she spent a couple of days visiting
friends. While in town Mrs. Guest

One of the amusing things about

often lose tricks in the most ingenious
manner. The writer was recently watching a game in which two spades was the
final declaration. The declarer should
have easily made four odd, game and

failed to make his bid by one trick.
After the hand was over, his partner

use the same skill in winning tricks
that you do in losing them, you would
be the best player in the world." Some
time when this result happens to you,

to do so.
Speaking of bad players, here's an
amusing little verse by one of them:

Lumberton inspecting the various departments of the B.C. Spruce Mills,
Mr. E. E. Lawe, freight solicitor of
the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy
Railway, spent Wednesday afternoon
of last week in Lumberton in the interests of his company.
The regular weekly meeting of the
Lumberton Social Club wan held last
Wednesday evening in the Lumberton
Hall. The early part of the evening
was spent In playing whist. At the
conclusion of the cards the tally
cards for the entire month were totalled and the prizes awarded those
receiving the highest number of
points at the three meetings which
were held in the month of February
The prizes were won by the follow
ing: Mrs. J. A. Jones, ladies' first
Mrs. E. L. Conroy, ladies' consolation; Mr. II. I*rice, gents' first; and
Mr. E. L. Conroy, gents' consolation,
Refreshments were served by the
committee in charge of the arrangements. The monthly business meeting was held after the refreshments
were served. Considerable discussion
was devoted to the question of music,
which has always been a handicap for
the club, as it has not always been
possible to have someone donate his
or her services for the dance music.
tt was decided to secure the loan of
a large Victrola from some music
hoise in Cranbrook and try this form
of music out. The club possesses a
small machine at the present time.
However, this has not been very satisfactory for dance music. The follow-[
ing committee wus appointed to havef
charge of the meetings during the
month of March: Mr. nnd Mrs. E. L.
Conroy, Mr. and Mrs, W. R. Andrews,
Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison.

Of tlit* many Internationally important subjects before the nation
today for discussion and settlement,
thy question relating tu the diversion
of lake waters by the United States
authorities is of paramount Importance. We fellows would certainly
like to see the 'government of this
country of ours So well and securely
established that they could Immediately take tins vital matter out of
the hands of petty officials who are
today only haggling or trifling with
it, and deal with it as a powerful and
nationally representative government.
It requires such well established authority to lay down the law to Uncle
Sam on this matter and definitely
state where Wa as a nation stand iii
maintaining our treaty rights. It is
from such aeemlngly small incidents
its is prescnU'd in this water diversion dispute that grave International
disputes arise. Therefore delay or
imlilfeicnci- iu dealing with them
should not he encouraged .and wc
trust that responsible ministers will
soon he available to socuro the well
istnblished treaty rights of the Canadian people. The old unit oi' taking
yard when but an Inch la given is
herein iu us all, and we still tell
iiselves that possession is nine
points oi'  the  law.

HtaJ    Ottcei    Vaacomr
We   l'ellows-on-the-street  are   still
wondering how much longer wc have
wait before g.fUhlg a represents-
.< and responsible government. We
are all heartily sick of the exhibition
f weakness displayed by the present
outfit at Ottawa' locjay, and only
wish We had the power in our hands
to put an end to it. The party of
the Opposition are, owing to their
numerical preponderance in the
no doubt justified in continu-
[leliatc, which, for length of
time, is unprecedented iu our history.
They claim that being the largest
party   they   are   entitled   to   govern,
nd wc fellows certainly think that
they are making good their claim, If
they prove that they can control Ihe
ursc of business in the Commons
hy saying how long a period U to be
spent in discussing or debating any
particular subject, when a subject is
n be presented or when it is to be
isposed of, it certainly looks as
though they really hail the power
after all. The prerogative of ad-
iourning or assembling litis always
lain with a government, yet the Conservative parly in the present session
are making these decisions. The impotence of tho government to disprove the Opposition claims by definite counter-action further strengthens the Conservative claims.
*  *  *  *
Looked at from every angle and
viewpoint the Ottawa situation is
undeniably intolerable. A man's
political affiliations cannot nor docs
not keep him from this conclusion.
It is the daily talk of the man-on-
the-street. It is the business man's
dally worry. It is the subject matter
of discussion by the boards of directors of every business concern
throughout the country. Worse than
anything else is the fact that it
the restraining influence on our Obi
Country and foreign investors. And
in the meantime wc remain absolute
ly helpless. Newspapers from coast
to coast of all political faiths join in
lamenting the impasse, hut from
them all we yet no gleam of hope.
We ten million people have to stand
helplessly by while two or three hundred of our should-be servants in
Ottawa play their party game without a seeming thought to the welfare
ami prosperity of the country. Out
of the hundreds of newspaper comments we read none which attaches
blame to party. From one of them
we get a new note quite distinct from
party influence. The Winnipeg Tribune blames the Governor-General
for the situation. That paper says:
"It is clear today that if His Excellency the Governor-General had accepted the resignation of thi' government after its decisive rejection by
the people, a Conservative administration would have bad no difficulty
iti holding the reins of office—it is
an impossible situation for which the
Governor-General of Canada must
accept no small pari of the responsibility."
•  *  «  *   •
It is interesting to recall at least
five cases of gubernatorial action by
Dither Governor-Generals or Lieutenant-Governors in federal or provincial affairs, hi Ih.hj the Conservative party met defeat in federal elections, and before leaving office and
just before assembling parliament,
Sir Chas. Tupper. while still Premier,
submitted certain orders-in-council
for signature to Lord Aberdeen, then
Governor-General. His lordship absolutely refused to B.gn them, point*
inn out that the Conservative party
hail been defeated. In IH'.iH Lt.-
Governor Mclnnes of B.C.. after tbe
provincial election of that year in
which tin- Turner government failed
tn win a majority, nol only refused
to sign wanflntfl presented for his
signature, but. dismissed the Premier
and called upon Ncmlin to form a
government In moo, 1009 and
again in 1007 wo find our Governors
keeping the heel on (lie necks of
political bosses, and the reading of
these incidents in our parliamentary
life nre interesting iu the light of
today's situation at Ottawa, Perhaps the Winnipeg Tribune is right
in its conclusion.
• *  • •
It looks as though provincial poll-
ties are to prove of more active interest to we fellows-on-the-street at
an early date, From Vancouver reports it appears that the Hon. John
Oliver has at last decided to actually
give Vancouver representation on his
Victoria cabinet. If this should prove
to be true, a bye-election will of
course be necessary. Cu-pt. Ian Mackenzie is named as the likely new
minister, but this honor will altogether depend upon whether the gallant gentleman -can hold his seat In
a contest in the coast city. It is well
known that the provincial ministry
has a horror of throwing open a coast
seat, dreading a defeat, and at this
stage it would be interesting to know
what they have up their sleeve to
give them the necessary courage today. Necessity of course knows no
law and this may be the factor.
Another good pally inai
the great sacrifice of a
salt- sent in federal polltli
a likely minister to come
port of a tottering government.
F. N. Ihtrke, the Liberal meml
referred to, is giving Roglna
chance of still further (ulduig tl
fame of Saskatchewan as a '
minister producing province
■denlly, I suppose, this furtlr
fellows how much we are really in
tbe hands of the Farmer-Progressive
party for our national government.
Otherwise we congratulate Saskatchewan upon the breed of men
she has within her borders, but wish
they were a little more consistent
in their affiliations. They should not
forget that the people of this country decided last October that sixty
per cent less representation was just
a little preliminary to complete extermination of group government or
party. We are all going in for the
much wider Atlantic to Pacific national party.
We note that yet another enquiry
:1s demanded in the House of Commons. This time it is to delve into
the very doubtful manner and means
by which Hon. C. Cross, Liberal member for Athabasca, obtained his seat.
It appears that one of tbe many bits
of information laid in this case tells
of many ballots having been cast and
counted ut a place where actually no
poll was opened. Rumor has not yet
disclosed any of the other indictments, but if they are any more
crooked or absolutely dishonest than
the one cited we would like to learn
of them. We can sure learn n lot
about the "devious way" from our
politicians. When this enquiry comes
before the House we may obtain
some more matter for discourse on
the old pork barrel.

that the game was most likelj tu be

The hospitality of the Kimberley
curlers was freely commented upon
by the visitors, many claiming that
at an place could it be equalled.

a very large measure of this praise.

Wednesday evening what was cou-
Bidored by many in be the most successful meeting of the Cranbrook
Brotherhood wus^.eld. After the justice was done an excellent menu the
members enjoyed a sing-song of
popular selections, following which
Mr, Frank Guimont who was the
guesl of the evening, gave a practical .and valuable talk on game conservation. While Mr. Guimont is
known In he an authority on the subject upon which he dwelt, and while
some have heard him deal with it on
former occasion^, it i-> questionable
if he was ev.i' heard to better advantage than on this occasion, That
his remarks were approaclated may
he judged from the fact that no less
than five claimed a chance to speak
mi the motion nf thanks which was
heartily accorded him,
Speaking on shorl notice and iu a
limited ti , Mr. Guimont dealt with
In Bubjecl most effectively, Among
manj points brought nut, he drew attention to the comparatively high
place that game held as a commercial
asset, i.e., .sixth, and in his opinion
could be brought up to second or
third, While not detracting from
hunting in any way as a great sport
Mi-. Guimont struck a responsive
chord in (he mind nf his hearers when
he drew attention to the greater
pleasure nf hunting with a camera.
He gave as an estimate of the value
of the game of the province !fl,:iOu,-
000,000 ami all that was spent therein was $-10,01)0. He referred to the
work of the Rod and Gun Club, handicapped as they were financially. He
was pleased to point to the success
that attended their efforts in connection with many things, especially the
matter of the rish hatchery, pointing
out the fact that the locul hatchery
has been considered by many to be
most efficient, proving their contention thut local conditions were such
that as good a batchery could be
maintained here as in any other part
of Canada. He mentioned the desire
and hope of the Rod and Gun Club
to increase the capacity of the local
batchery to 3,000,000 cut throat.
For this purpose they were endeavoring tn raise the sum of $1500.00.
Reverting to the matter of game,
the speaker again drew attention to
the wonderful resources of East
Kootenay as a game district, it only
being exceeded in some respects by
the Gassier district, where in one
town, Telegraph Creek, $71*1,01)0.00
was  paid  in  one   year   for   guides,
This could be more than duplicated
here. Al the conclusion of bis ad-
dress a motion bj G. I. Moir, seconded by Mr. Morton, thanked the
speaker for his most interesting re-
murk... both stating that he had
succeeded in placing the mutter of
hunting and game conservation in a
manner which hud not been done be-
fore. Messrs. B. C. Freeman, J. P.
Kink and R. P, Moffatt also added
their word of praise. The speaker
appropriately accepted the motion of
were as follows: First the Bluebird
Orchestra, second, Miss LouJbh Robertson; tied for third prize, Master
Marshall McPherson and Dorothy
Worthington; fourth, Mr. Chenez.
Also nn the program were Mrs. La
Flour and Harry Lee, who were highly entertainitiK in a skit put on by
them which was non-couipetitive.

short time, Messrs. ,1. P. Fink and
W. IL Wilson, the committee, reported gathering in something like $55

Iu connection with the recent
automobile show at the Auditorium
held by the Hanson Garage, Mrs.
Harry Lee, the fortunate winner of
the $16.00 merchandise prize practically had to be forced to sign her

that as Dame Fortune had not heretofore smiled on her drawings of
this kind, she would not bother with
Ihe signing of tbe card.
Joseph Fontaine, representative of
the Carbondale Coal Co., Ltd,, held
a meeting in Wardner this week and
received further endorsement of the
plans now under way to reorganize
Ihe company. The confidence of the
old shareholders in the new compuny
was backed up as in other places by
subscriptions tn tbe new issue of
stock which  is being marketed, and
by means nf which it is hoped the
mine at Ardley will be placed on a
producing basis.

j! Recollections of Octogenarian
Reminiscenses  of John  Fingnl Smith, of this city, as
Recorded by Himself.
*0|.»»*»+»l»»lH,,|,fit j^
When one enters on his fourscore years it is natural to expect
that events which have transpired
during the long period of three-
fourths of ti century should leuve an
indelible impression on tho mind, a-;
muny of the momentous events in
the world's history took place during
that space of time, My first recollection begins ut un early period of
my life und being endowed with a
retentive memory it may be of interest to recall a few of them, Thin
will he un autobiography without a
Hoswell to chronicle the events. The
record of our blrthf Is registered in
the old church of Si. John, Belfast,
P.B.I., Fobruary 16th, 1847. 1 will
explain how the mi me "Belfast"
came into general use to describe it
large settlement of Highlanders, us
I often BOO an allusion made to it
and the real origin is not given correctly. The Karl of Selkirk, the foremost colonizer of his own or any
other day, who wus a true philanthropist and a hundred years ahead of
hia time, secured a large section of
the southern portion of Prince Edward Island, known under the French
name of St. John until 179b. He
wus also Interested in the Red River
about the same time, now the great
und prosperous Manitoba. After the
fatal duy of Culloden Moor great
changes had taken place. In this I
have a peculiar interest as my great
grandfather fought with Prince
Charlie   but   happily   escaped    the
butcher Cumberland. My mother
could often entertain by relating the
romantic escape of the "Prince" in
Skye and the heroine Flora McDonald. These tales of hardship und escape were entertuinments worth all
line movies in existence. At any
rate no traitor was found to betray
the fugitive; not the thirty thousand
pounds could buy it. Sir Walter
Scott said, "This disinterested conduct reflects honor on the Highlanders of Scotland while their mountains exist." Lord Selkirk gathered
some eight hundred and brought them
out on the historic ship "Polly," to
land" on the woody shore of Prince
Edward Island at a convenient place
on his estate on the eleventh of August 1808, The "Polly" was an old
warship and her Captain Darby was
un old man-of-war officer. The
"Polly" left Greenock, not "Belfast,
Ireland," us a writer in the Family
Herald and Star says in u late number. This was during the Napoleonic wars, und French privateers infested every sea. Captain Darby, for
I had the thrilling tale from my uncle who was fourteen years of age
at the time, kept far north of the
usual course of ships yet French privateers did not miss seeing the Polly.
At the sight of the frigate Captain
Darby ordered all the women ant'
children to bed, the men were assigned positions hy the few guns; he
had, and "hove to." When the boats
approached Darby told   its   officers
small-pox had broken out among the
passengers, This expedient succeeded, and the French never molested
further. One may surmise what a
German would have done in the Great
War—Polly, crew and passengers,
would have heen sent to the bottom
of the Atlantic and none would have
been left to tell the tale. My father
was only six months oh! at the time
So much for a preliminary introduction.
The kilt and tartan were proscribed after the rising of 17-15 because the sight of them scared the
wits out of the Hanoverians. Nevertheless they had to have Highland
soldiers, and gloriously did they maintain their valour on many a fiercely
contested battlefield in all quarters
of the globe and upheld the honor of
Britain and the crown. After Waterloo the 42nd, or the remnant left
of them, was stationed in Charlotte*
town where an carthern fort was
placed and was not demolished until
1805, So with my earliest recollection
I can recall was the sight of a soldier of th(- Black Watch who occasionally visited his countrymen. I may
have been between two or three, but
I was profoundly impressed at the
red jacket, the bonnet and the epaulets on the brood and magnificent
shoulders, and ran into the house.
I wus jeered at telling this incident,
but years after my answer was ready
—1 was not thi' first who ran at the
sight of the Red fonts. After nearly forty years of peace Russia claimed the right of protecting the Greeks
against the unspeakable Turk, the
religious faith of the Russians being
the same with the Greek orthodox
church. That was given as a reason,
at any rate, for the invasion of Turkey. The Turks at the beginning
fought  heroically,   but   appealed   to
Britain and France, as the great
bug-bear, the balance of power, was
in danger. The British and Louis
Napoleon formed an alliance, proclaimed war against Russia and prepared to invade the Crimea. The
story of the Crimean War war follows and my vivid remembrance of
(To be continued)

Smith's twin brother, who still resides at the old family home iu

in twenty-one minutes with a head
scissors ami arm crusher hold, and
the second fall with thu Bame holds
in jusl six minutes. Tht bout was,
very good while it lasted, hut the
"fans" wen- somewhat disappointed
that it finished so soon. Olson appeared to In- altogether too strung
for his opponent, Bill Boot, who nevertheless made a very game showing.
Olson after the match stated that he
wa- taking no chances in losing to
Boot, as only the winner was entitled to a match with Jepson, the
local wrestler, and he was sure going
to he the one to get this match if
possible. There were two preliminaries, one a three round boxing bout
between Magnus .Jacobson, the well-
known strong man of Yahk, and H.
Yustoff, his bush partner. This bout
waa greatly enjoyed by the crowd,
to judge by the applause given both
men, the result being a draw. The
second preliminary was also a three
round boxing match, between Nick
Klsslul and Royce Thompson. This
bout was full of action and went
r well with the crowd, who, to
show their appreciation, showered the
ung lads, tit the finish, with silver
ins. The wrestling mat was then
taken up and the hall swept, then the
famous Boundary orchestra of five
pieces came to tlu- stand ami ren-
lered some snappy dance music.
which at once brought twenty odd
couples on the floor dancing." The
dancing continued for two or three
hours, and the music was greatly appreciated, judging by tlu number
that was always ,<n the floor ready
for the next dance. It was the first
appearance of the five-piece Boundary orchestra from Kingsgate and
Kastport in Yahk, and judging from
the comments one hoard soon after
they began to play, the people present wen- well satisfied with them,

Great interest is being taken by
the Yahk. Kingsgate and Kastport
residents in the coming wrestling
match between Charlie Olson and
Xcls Jepson, which will take place at
the Mill Hall. Yahk, on the evening
f March Oth next. The "fans'" are
convinced that Jepson will have the
toughest match ot his career in Yahk
when he meets the big, powerful
Swedish wrestler, who \< very fas:
for a man of his size, as wil- shown
the "funs" when he beat Bill Root
in such quick time a few days ago.
However. Jepson is confident that he
can win and has offered Olson a large
sporting wager on the outcome. To
date Olson has not accepted, but It
is likely that he will before the date
of the match. It is claimed that
there will be at least six carloads
of "fans" fn-ni Kingsgate and Fas;,

bur of men down from the Yank 1 ig-

keeps up it [a expected that one or

the final test is furnished by his
police record maintained in the city
