Hnwi ver a police officer, no more than
any other employee, cannot go further
than his employors wish, and we have
heard no complaint hy any of the commission against thc present chief for
falling to carry out his Instructions,
The Police Commission have no desire
for publicity, and though It is a public
body tho press are not allowed to at-

' s uue few weeks ago when tin* Mayoralty ambitions of the present candidate wero lirsi published In the press

chief emphasis in the letter appeared
in be Iii id on tho collection of the few

his program a capable, brainy, dependable man would bo n great restraining Influence and al leas! prevent anything too raw being pulled off. Unfortunately the only mnn as yet In the
field for tho Mayoralty falls Far short
of Mils standard.
A characteristic example of Mr,
Santo's vacillating nature and desire to
"run with the hare and hunt with the
hounds" is shown by liis action in consenting with ids two colleagues on the
Hoard to allow the hotels to violate tlie.
v law by remaining open after hours the
j ji night of tho then Premier BowBor's
visit to Cranbrook, and afterwards re-
gretting liis "mistake" when taken to
task for it by the oilier element.
Surely in the city of Cranbrook
there Is some otlier man with tlie
necessary property qualifications win
for the cood ot tho city will comi
forward and make the necessary sac*
rlllco of time and convenience and of
ter his services to the electorate. Wi
want a man who will safeguard thi
moral interests of tlie city iu fact, nol
iu mime only, u mutt who will bo fair
In ull things Imt at tin* same time can
nol lie "used" by the other element,
l.Nu'l'K Mr. Santo has been offered
tho use of our advertising columns to
state his ease but hus fulled to tnkc
advantage of the opportunity.]
Ho far only one candidate tor the
Mayoralty is in Bight bul the Herald
is loth to believe that the present
aspirant will be given the endorsatloii
of tho cltlzons of Cranbrook to the
Chief Magistracy of tho city either by
acclamation or by a majority vole in
tbo case of an election.
Wo would have nothing to sny a-
galnst Mr. Santo as a private citizen, but anj'00 who aspires to the
highest office in the bestowal of tbo
city must in pn pared to meet criticism of his notions, and particularly
when, as in Mr. Santo'a case, bo has
served on tbo council and on tho police commission tor a year pro\ iou .
.Mr, Santo':- record on the police
commission und on the council has
not been auch us to entitle bim to a
renewal of th confidence ot the electorate. The city during tho past tew
months hns been going backward instead of forward Insofar as morals
and law enforcement arc concerned,
and bids fair to sunn regain its old-
time "wide-open" reputation of tin
halcyon days, when houses ol Ill-fame
were a recognized part and parcel of
the city and Clark Avenue was a flourishing Red Light district. The prostitutes are already regaining a foothold In the city, thanks in part to tho
misplaced tenderness of landlords
With vacant houses to rent and the
Inability of tlie police to overcome
tlm mass of legal technicalities which
can always lie raised on behalf of those
who an* willing lfi pay for Interpreting
the law to their benefit, The hotels,
we won't say all of them, but at least
part nf tliem. sell liquor at all hours
of the day, Sunday Included. Gambling flourishes almost as of yon*, und
anyone wbo wnnt:- ";i gi ne-" can Boon

If Mr. Snnto in Ills capacity ot

capable person lo guide the clly thru

\     rilOYIMIVI      ROAD     RAIMA
Mr, Kditor:- I was much Interested
iu a letter in a recent Issue of Nelson
Daily News, by one Mr, John Simpson
discussing llie choice of routes of a
highway across Kast Kootenay or part
of iiu interprovincinl highway. In
this Piter, which should be read by
every citizen of this dislrict, the
writer gives the "pros and cons" ns he
boob them of three routes through tho
mountains on tho west side of the
Upper Columbia, Kootenay Valley, and
his findings seem to my mind to plainly indicate lhe St. Marys route as tin
mo-1 feasible of construction and
likely to bo thc most practical und
convenient for use as well.
Almost eolncldentally with this, I
saw a petition, that Ih being circulated
locally, asking for a survey and con
slderation by the Provincial Government, of the same route with a view to
getting it definitely placed on the
plans of the Public Works Department
for construction In the near future.
Now sir, I submit that, considering
tho fact that sucli a road will he built
through some one of the possible pass
es beforo long, and comparing the
possibilities of uny other route In its
beneficial effects on thc wholo country
and its Immediate results in the
mount of mineral territory that will
be opened up at mice, It seems, all
manner of doubt should be set nt rest
ns to the dcBlrabillty of pushing this
route ns tho one we need.
While there |s no doubt certain
mighty Interests, do still as In the
past desire to keep all the St. Marys
miitry covered with n blanket as Its
mineral wealth in concerned, it is well
known that thoro are on the properties of ninny bunt working mm tbo
fruits of lung years of
waiting only sum* means of transport- j
utton to reward them tor nil this and
at the same time ample to put a new I
activity Into the husiness of this district that will recall the best days of
Cranbrook's  past.    Not  only  that, a I
motor road to Kootenay Lake and a]
ferry   will   placo Nelson   less  than  a I
hundred  miles  from Cranbrook,  not
tou far in those days to go nnd return
in  om*. day and give opportunity to
transact some business  while there,
whereas now to get any time in Nelson in business hours requires aboul
fifty hours from rranbrook to return.
It has also very frequently happened
that the difference In price ot staph
farm products in West Kootenny and
here has been sufficient to more Ihan
handsomely  pay  transport  from  St.
Marys Prairie over such a route,
Sueh. however, would never be needed once the running country contiguous to tlmt, road was opened up.
Marysville. Kimberley and Wycliffe
ranchers, will then hav,. at their door
more work than thoy can do to supply
the needs of the workers that will then
be employed in cutting out ami shipping the wealth now idle in the rocks
of that country. Tin* possibilities,
no Mr. Editor, tin* certain resources
of this work an; so patet that all those
with the Intcresl of tiie dlstricl at
heart should gel behind Iheir movement ami push il to a successful outcome.
A. i\. s.
Sir 1 writ*' for the purpose of impressing upon the minds of the people
of Nelson the fact thnt thero i- Utile
doubt concerning tho building of n
great highway across Canada hy th
Dominion government and that thoy
can make certain tlmt ii will pass
through Nelson if they try, 11 must
be remembered that Miis will not he a
party question ut Ottawa because almost all lhe owners of automobiles
both in eastern Canada nnd in the west
are very anxious to have the road built
and there are quite as many Liberals
who own automobiles as there are
Conservatives. Tiiere will he a greut
deal of motoring from ihe east to the
west nud from the west lo the east
when it is built, as almost all the
families that own automobiles in the
east have relations and friends in the
Early in October I began Inquiring
Into tbe matter and I found that, although most persons wanted to see
the road built, they were all pessimistic concerning its being built within a
reasonable length of time. They believed tin* cost would be so enormous
tlmt thc government, on account of the
war, would he unable to take the matter up for a long time. I wrote a lone
article on the matter which was printed with many headlines in tin* Olobe.
lu my article I show that the road
would bring a. great deal of tourist
travel inlo Canada from the United
States, and lhat the inst would uot be
excessive since it. would be quite feasible to link together a lame number of
good pieces nf road already existing.
I also showed tlmt tin* passage thru
Hritish Columbia, which the people of
the east look upon us the chief obstacle, had been almost overcome al-
ready by the Hritish Columbia provincial government.
My article bore fruit. Just one week
after It appeared iu the Olobe, delegates representing tin* automobile
owners of Toronto aud Montreal went
to Ottawa and interviewed Hon Robert Rogers concerning the matter. H(
gave them un enthusiastic reception,
and stated he would do everything in
bis power, both in parliament and out
of it, to help the project on. lie was
good enough also In his speech to
them to mako use of the arguments
1  had made use of in   the Olobe    n
week before this happened.
I enclose a mail, which  will  show
you   tlmt  there  are   thru*   ways   by
Which the road enn possibly reach Nelson from the Kootenny valley in Kast
Kootonay.    They  are  all  by  way  of
Kootenny Uny and Queens Bay, wliere I
tt will be necessary to have a ferry, |
One Is by wny of Wycliffe. Marysville,
St. Mary's lake.   This road would bo
u   short eut.  but   it   would   mil   pass
through Crnnbrook, although it would!
como near It.
A second route would lm by wny of
Cranhrook Kitchener, then norlh
along Coat river nud west along Sanni
creek to Kootenny Lake, then north
along tlie east shore of Kootenny lake
to Kootenay Bay, This would not pa*is
through Creston, Imt there Is a good
road from Creston to Kitchener, ami
the distance is not great. It may be
that some parts of the mad between
tlm Mouth of Suncii creek and Kootenay Day would bo hard to build uml
it might cost more to build this second
road than the tlrst mentioned. The
rond Is already entirely completed
and In use from Windermere lo Kitchener.
The third route would be by way of
Cranbrook, Kitchener uud Creston to
Kuskunoolt ami then up the oast ride
of Kootenay lake to Kootenny Bay,
This route would probably be altogether ton expensive us the rock work
between Kuskanook uud Sam a creek
would be vory costly. It is not likely
that the Dominion government will
spend a large amount on rock work,
when H enn easily choose u much I et
ter   route.     ThO   people     nf     Nelson
should give the government n Hquiiro
deal by advising It as to tlle besl route.
There must he prospectors,   timber
cruisers nnd others fn Nelson, especially during tbe winter, wiio know all
tin se routes.
The Dominion governmenl   i*= now
completing the road from Banff   to
Windermere and people will soon be
able to motor from Calgary to Creston
without uny difficulty. There is a good I    before you buy an ointment, sb to

already completed.     There ,is nlso u I
hmg, round about  road by way   of
Pentlcton, but the distance is much i
greater and  tin- grad" is    inferior. ;
Due Sunday recently two men motor- ;
ed from Grand  Forks to  Koremeos
ami  back, a  distance ot"    240  miles.
'I liey went by way of Soyoos Duke nnd
left   Grand   Porks   in   the  morning,
getting back at 10 p.m.   They stay-!
cd several hours in Keremeos, so tin*
road must be u fairly good one.
Tiiere remains the piece of roud bo* i

■ou will buy Zam-Buk, for I
tliis herbal balm has been proved by
thousands to bo the most reltablo
ointment on the market. It not
only cures when other ointments
fail, but Us cures are permanent.
Mr. Isaac h. Phlnncy, of Lower
Five Islands, N.S., writes: "Zam-Buk
is, without doubt, tbe most reliable
ointment on tbe market. For two
years 1 suffered with an ulcer ou
my leg, which delled nll*tretilmenls
- although 1 tried many and spent
no end of money. Finally I tried
Zam-Buk nud tho results were
most encouraging. The ulcer soon
showed signs of healing, end per*
severance with Ztuu-Huk worked u

Zam-Huk is equally good for cc*

The following letter we hope will
Inaugurate a fortnightly practice of
giving some matter of Interest to farmers unci stockmen, the future matter
will bo in lhe way mainly of a digest nf
some leading discussion on farm mat-
tors from the Agricultural Press, a
precis of experimental results from
up-to-date bulletins, aud comments on
matters of current agricultural interest. We have chosen as editor for ihis
department a local man who has given
n good deal of study to the broader
aspects of farming as well as having
sinni' local experleec and hope
this department will be appreciated.
It is especially for the matter "Farm
Clerk" will cull from important and
valuable sources not usually coming
into (lie range of every farmer tliat we
hope the benefit will be derived.
Mr. Editor:- In conversation witli
one or two members of tlie local
Farmer's Institute | understand that
at tin annual election of officers the
total number of members present wns
barely enough to form a quorum and
outside iiu* retiring directorate one
lone member appeared. More recently
at the last monthly meeting whicli
doses tin* financial year and at which
should be presented the retiring President's address and review of tin* lust
year's work, tin* Sec. Treasurer's report and tin* Auditor's report, only
four members were present, thus preventing any meeting. I would like to
ask the local farmers, and not they
alone hut tlie many others whose interests are bound up witli theirs, what
is Hie reason of tiiis? Last year I was
present and a inrge meeting was held.
a considerable number of business
men attending and evincing an active
interest in the business of the Institute
and at tliat meeting was Inaugurated
llie work Hint lias since resulted in the
establishment of tho Cranbrook
Creamery, a concern that Is already
creating a decided and much needed
change in our local ngricuUnre nnd
that will lie increasingly advantageous to us nll as time goes on. The
farmers must not imagine that now
this has been accomplished there is
no further use for tbe Institute, there
ure many more worlds to conquer.
By an active spirit of co-operation und
by tliat only will such things be done.
Consider, now for the first time we
liave luul firmly settled in tho saddle
a Minister of Agriculture who lias not
had first to give tlie major part of bis
time and attention to the Finance
portfolio, wiio also since the days of
Captain Tatlow, is tbe first who has
in tlie general opinion of the farmers
or il. ('., been on both tin* business and
the sentimental side of his nature,
really in sympathy wltli the farmers
and last and most important, who is
able fully, from personal experience,
to enter into all the details of our
daily life with the Intimacy that comes
only io hlm who has with bis own
bauds done tlu- actual work of pioneering ami later of real farming on
llie results or that pioneer work.
This is an opportunity to present
our needs witli solid support behind
them. No longer does it fall on Mr.
Scotl to ad as a Borl of interpreter
between real farmers and a minister
wiio was a stranger to their needs,
their work, yes almost lo llieir very
language, Today the minister will
grasp as full au appreciation of our
ws and iiims us his capable deputy,
uredly to tiie greater usefulness of
the department,
Tiiere are scores of changes needed.
I.* t ii- L'et busy and while for the snk<-
nf much noeded economy we must noi
demand heavy expenditure, thoro nre
In every thinking farmer's mind opportunities of Improvemcnl that will
in the aggregate change mightily our
position Iii the country. What ubout
the need for legislative declaration to
give hgal status to our rights of free
range? What about tlle need of one
r two amendments to the Agricultural Credits Act? What about n
formal impressment on tlie new gov-
rnment of Hie fact that the farmers of
H. C. and of this district arc demand
lug a more economical system of expenditure of public roads moneys?
What about getting the jump on this
weed Inspection business early in tin*;
season and so avoid the deplorable
mess of hist year, due to the fault of
everyone who meddled with it but j
the man who finally, weeks too late,
was sent out to clean up a Job big
enough even if started In time to occupy throe men? Whnt about a voto|
of approval or the principal of Agricultural Credits and n rider to the
offect Hint another appropriation for
samo Is going lo he seriously noeded
very shortly? Whnt l» our tuni-ium
mi (lie Idea of agricultural ngontfl us
