CLEF aUB SUNDAY CONCERT May 20th Auditorium
8.45 P. M.
Aims Of New Party
Are Expounded
Loaders   Of   Latest   Political
Movement Address Cran-
lirook Audience
On Saturday oveiilng to uu audience
numbering possibly ono hundrod and
ill'ly tbe purposes und policies of the
newly organized political party were
set flotrth ut. n meeting ln the Auditorium. Alderman J. H. Cameron was
e.bnlrnmn of the meeting aud a fair
number of ladles were present In the
Along with General A. D. McRae,
who Is tho Interim leader of the party,
ware Mr, 11. Stowort of Nicola, who is
also connected with the organization,
ius well us Mr. Frank D'OrBay, an old
time railroad man, and Mr. J. Nixon,
who wus introduced as a labor man
from Vancouver.
Considering the difficulties a Saturday meeting of this nature entails, It
wus thought that the attendance was
fairly satisfactory, but it was stated
uBter the meeting by one of the speakers that In point of numbers and enthusiasm it waB the poorest gathering
that they had yet held lu the course
of their present tour.
Mr. Stewart as firBt speaker, ex-
qlalned the origin of the party slogan.
Tliey thought that to put Premier
Oliver out und let Mr. BowBer In
would mean little advantage and
therefore they have set about to organize a new party. He believed the
political life of the province had developed into the prsjnt undesirable
condition because there had been no
public consciousness. The people
have beon satisfied to let the political
life of British Columbia look after itself. It has been a case of every one
for themselves. Mere class cooperation as adweated by labor would not
go fur enough and the time has come
when all must Join in an effort to distinguish right from wrong. Tho
provincial party sought to impress
upon every one the responsibilities of
citizenship and the franchise which
had been fought for, and that muat
not be held" lightly. He claimed that
the provincial party waa not political
in the old sense.
They had already Issued a manifesto, and a temporary committee was
carrying on until a convention was
held In November to effect permanent
organization. The new organization
would bo what the people make It and
the nppeal was to all who thought a
change was necessary to secure good
government. It was their Idea that
men of high ideals should be secured
for the positions and responsibility
nnd that the office should seek the
man and not the reverse ns Is usually
the ense.
The second speaker was Mr. Frank
D'Orsay, who as a railway man of
many years standing on both sides of
the line proved an able critic ot the
P. o. E. management by the present
government. He criticized tho men
the Premier had selected to fill tho
railroad positions as unpractical, and
was espclally hard on A. H. Buck-
worth, formerly general manager, and
laterty "promoted" till ho was now deputy minister of railways. Mr. D'Or-
sny (old of throe locomotives which
hud boon purchased for oho on the
P. (I. K. nnd Which had been found to
be totally ununited for tbe road, end
lunl to undergo extensive alterations
to ho used at all. For the last year
be ((bowed how thoro had been one
(rain n week over the road, going a-
tiout eleven nud a luilf miles an hour,
making some seven hundred train
miles per week, With one passenger
coach and four or rive box cars, yet
ft (onk a force of sixty in the shops
tu keep the rolling HOCk in condition.
In Vancouver the offices of the rail*
way occupied two thirds of one floor
of one of the most, expensive Office
buildings, with a multiplicity of offl

mish. Tim total operating expemios
ror the Inst liscal year wero stated to
ho 9871,686.60 with a revenue of only
$:!(i>,mm, outlining a loss of over half
n million dollars.
Major General McRae. who was the
main speaker, spoke first of the local
organizations which he hoped would
ho effected along just the same lines
an that of the existing pnrtlos.
Deprecating what he termed the
scramble for jobs, he pleaded for the
abolition of a double standard of pub-
lie morality under which to the victor
bolongod the spoils, and for a rebirth
of political righteousness. He urged
a pay-as-you-go flnanlclal policy with
economy and efficiency, and an appli-

She was glad to bo able to state
that the deficit icif ovor $00,000 in the
General Society had ben wiped out In
three ways; increased glvlngs, lessened exchange and the self sacrifice of
the missionaries in tlio foreign field.
An effort is being made by the society to secure a Home ln Vancouver for
girls and women wlvc have beon drugged down by the drug habit, where
they may be enabled to fight the habit

for the Y. M. C. A acquitted bhemse)-
ves like honest to goodness pros, nnd
the crowd waa loud in its praise of
the quality of ball put up. While the
attendance was larger than at any
previous game, the games are worthy
of still more liberal support. Not
only is financial support necessary,
but the encouragement that a good
attendance gives. The game on Tuesday night demonstrated that the hoys
are capable of putting up a brand of
hall that they need not be ashamed of,
and worthy of the support of every
good sport In the city. In seven innings 29 Y. M C. A. players faced the
pitcher, while only 26 High School
players were at bat, an average of
less than four players per Innings.

trying conclusions in a game In which
the City boys emerged victorious with
the long end of a 14 to 11 score. In
justice to the players tt should be remembered that It was so cold they
almost froze, good fielding being pretty nearly out of tbe question. Dr.

lletlretl Chief Outlines History
of l'iie Depnrttnent Since
Tho resignation of. Ceo. Reece recently from tho position of chief of
iho Cranbrook Fire Brigade, after h
lag connected with Ihe fire righting
department ever since its formal organization under tho city's control
aad for two years before thut, opened
tho way for in In: cresting and reminiscent, view ovor the twenty years of
tlio city's progress from the fireman's
point, of view. Tho Herald was l'or-
tanalo in catching Mr. Reece before
liis doporturo for the east, und though
usually a man of few words, he hnd
much to say on this occasion, of interest.
Mr Recce has Inhabited all the calls
the brigade has made ever since he
was connected with It, replete witli
all the essential particulars, lu this
connection it is interesting to note
lhal tliero lias yet to be a fatal fire ill
tho city of Cranbrook. There was
one case where an aged man was
smothered to death from smoke when
his shack was burning, but even In
tills ease Ihe actual fire damage was
slight, the fire being easily extinguished, but the aged inmate bail already
succumbed from the effects of smoke.
In another caso a nurse succumbed
later from tlio effects of hums rocei
veil at a mishap at the hospital.
Since tbe formal organization of i
volunteer lire brigade in 11)0:1, u nun)
tier of prominent local men have been
actively Identified with the department
.1. P. Fink was the organizer and first
chief of the volunteer brigade, and
was responsible for a good deal of the
early organization In conne tlon with
the activities of tlie brigade F. 11.
Deznll is ulso a former chief of the
department. Ross Carr, still one of
iho call men with the department, hat
been connected with the brigade al
aiosl since lhe beginning of things,
md W. E. Worden, although not acta
ally connected with the department,
lias missed giving assistance ut very
few lives down to tho presenl time.
During the first year tho fire brigade was organized, in llio:!, there was
i big tire lu the promises at present
iccupled by W. W. Kllby, owned at
hat time by C. II. Cilpln and used as
i general store. Tlie building con-
aillcd everything from a needle to an
iinchtor, including undertaking supplies
At the time of the fire tlie temperature
was twenty below zero but there was
i large crowd on hand to assist J. P.
rink, who was" then acting as chief.
There was one line of hose available
which was used on a hydrant ut the
corner where Moffall's Variety Store
now stands. This was attached lo
lhe old ('. P. It. main supply from the
pump house which stood ut tho back
of tho government building. The
groceries and contents from this store
wore strewn around on nearby vacant
lots and samples of ulmosl everything
were stolen, and un arrest wus made
In this connection. After the tiro was
over, the hose, frozen stiff, wus taken
by Mr. Fink Into the Fort Steele Mor-
cutitllO Store to be thawed out. The
fire hall at this time was near the
presenl Y. M. t\ A. corner.
The noxt  lire of any size was in

1918, with tlie temperature at 30 belovr

aged, and iu March ot the same year
a strange fire took place ln the upper
'Kory of tho Post Office building. It
is supposed In this case a spark entered the building through an open
trap door und igutted a mat lying
on i lie floor. The damage ln this case
was only slight. In December 1915
tlio residence of P. Parks on Pooley
^Avenue wus badly damaged, and in
May of tho following year at a fire on
Baker Street four streams of water
wore brought into use for the first
time. Tlio tiro on this occasion was

Nelson Hoard Of Trade Inclined
To Press Matter To
A Show Down
Denials that he bad stated, as reported, that the memorial of the Nelson Board of Trade in regard to freight
rates was due to the fact that W. B.
Lnnnigan of the Canadian Pacific
Railway ! ad heen "stirring up the
merchants," was made by Premier Oliver in a statement he has sent to
Nelson, iu which he lays the blame on
tho newspapermen for alleged misquoting him. "What I did say and
what was the truth, Was that I had

Full O* Pep" is the appropriate title of the new revue by the original
Dumbbells Company, now known as
the "Old Dumbells", which this world
famous aggregation will present here
at the Auditorium, on Monday, May 28
All the well known artists, with the
exception of two of the original Dumbbells, are now managing their own
productions, and have this season produced a bigger and better show than
any of their former offerings such as
"Biff, Blng, Bang', or the "Dumbells
Revue of 1922'. The latest revue lias
been breaking ull previous Dumbell
records all over Eastern Canada
where the seats in all the theatres
they played were sold out in advance
pf their opening date. The verdict
of the public everywhere is that
"Full O' Pep" is undoubtedly the
greatest Dumbell offering yet presented by these noted Soldier Artists.
The headline artists of the Old
Dumbells. "Red" Newman and Arthur
Holland need no commendation to
theatregoers here. The appearance of
Red Newman, as always before, the
vehicle for screams of laughter, while
tho female impersonations of Arthur
Holland are better than ever. One of
the new sketches "Billeted in a Barn",
gives a splendid opportunity to see
htow the boys lived "over there". It Is
absolutely true to life, even the
"cooties*' being much In evidence, this
is the funniest khaki skit the boys
have ever offered.

When You Bug a New Car
THE majority of Canadian-built
automobiles have Prest-O-Lite
as standard battery equipment.
These manufacturers know that
Prest-O-Lite Batteries give a steady
flow of current to engine and lights,
and an extra fund of reserve power
when it is needed.
The ownerof a Prest-O-Lite Battery
is sure of longer life from his battery, and of prompt, expert service
anywhere in Canada.
If your car is not now so equipped,
be sure that your next batten' is a

Built for hard service
The Studebaker Light-Six Sedan is built for years of
hard service-service over country roads, up-country
trails, city streets or anywhere you wish to drive!
It is comfortable, economical of fuel, sturdy and
long-lived. Freedom from repairs is proved by Studc-
baker's sales of repair parts, which in 1922 averaged
only $13 per car in operation.
Vibration, which is so destructive, particularly to
closed cars, is practically eliminated in the Light-Six
Sedan by the machining of the crankshaft and connect •
ing rods on all surfaces—a feature of construction not
to be found in any other car in Canada selling for
less than $3500.
Beautiful in design, mechanically right, luxurious
and adequately equipped-that briefly describes the
Studebaker Light-Six Sedan.
