Dave and a number of our prominent citizens were coming home from
a drive down the Moyie road in Mr.
Harry McKowan's new auto, when a
young cub was sighted on the roadside
gazing spellbound at the first "buzz-
wagon" It had ever seen. Peeling Insulted nt the Intensity of Its stare,
which Mr. McKowan took as a direct
libel to a brand-new car, the auto was
stopped and the party immediately
gave chase to the cub, Intending to

days' vacation in the Cranbrook "cool-

Thereupon the party began to throw
ticks and stones at the cub tn the
hope of making it mad enough to come
lown and show fight, but there was
nothing doing. So Dave beat it up
into the woods to secure a further
supply of ammunition, Intending to
evade a commission on the same for

(An appreciation)
It Is with regret we have to record
the deuth of Mr. Michael Phillips of
Tobacco Plains, Bast Kootenay, which
occurred on the 22nd June lust, at his
ranch near Klk River, lie was 74
yearB of age.
After a series of accidents, which
greatly enfeebled him. culminating in
a bad fall lust winter which rendered
him unconscious for several hours, hi
gradually collapsed, and though every
possible care wus given him by his d<
voted wife und daughter, he finally
Mr. Phillipps cume to this Province
In 18*14, and was employed In tthe service of the Hudson Buy Co. ut Fort
Shephard for about one year, then on
tlie establishment of a post ut the
junction of tlie Wild Horse uud Kootenay river near where Kort Steele
now is, he was placed In charge, which
position be occupied until 186S-9, when
the placer mines on Wild Horse becoming more or less abandoned, the
post was closed, and he left the service
of tlie Hudson Bay Co. and located the
famous Phllllnp's ranch on Tobacco
Plains, where he lived till some ten
years ago, when he sold out and went
to live on tbe ranch where he died.
On the settling of the Indians of the
Province on reserves in 1886, Mr. Phillipps in 1887 was appointed Indian
Agent for East and part of West Kootenay and It is entirely to his administration that we have the law abiding
and prosperous Indians in our district.
His word was law to them and though
when occasion required, whicli in the
earlier days was not seldom, be handled them without gloves, they thoroughly respected him snd appreciated
him for the man he was. Afraid of
nothing, always on the side of law and
order, ttie mere fact that he was present often was the means of preventing
what without his presence might have
been serious trouble.
As an instance of pluck, the trouble
in tlie old Wild Horse camp In 1867
Is perhaps a good illustration. It is
not commonly known, but the Fenians
practically took charge of the camp
and were about to institute a form of
government of their own. Deciding
thut something must be done, Mr. Phillipps, Shaw, a Kentuclan who stood six
feet four inches, and Normaldson the
constable, armed themselves, went to
tlle camp, arrested seventeen of the
worst of the Fenians, und started to
take them out to Victoria. On tlie way
out they met Judge Haines who was
coming In on his annual trip, who after reading the men a lecture. Instructed that they be conducted to
the boundary line and told not to come I
In 1880 when the Indians hud the !
few white people in the district at
their mercy, and it would huve taken
very little to cause a massacre, on
hearing of the trouble, Mr, Phillipps
did not wait, but alone rode at once to
Fort Steele, or rather where Kort
Steele now Is, und though the trouble
wus morn or less over, he did not
leave the country us others did, but
went to see the trouble through,

There have been many complaints
this summer of windows heing hrokeu
lu vacant houses and of gardens being robbed or injured, and lu oue Instance recently a landlord had to spend
In tho neighborhood of $Vo replacing
broken windows before he could rent
his house. This sort of vandalism Is
at any time a serious matter, and the
more so at present with glass advancing In price so rapidly on account or
scarcity caused by the war. Tbe mischief is caused lu nearly every case by
children, and it Is up to parents tu
tako proper steps to stop this. The
chief of police lias asked and been
promised the co-operation of the teachers in Impressing tho children with
the seriousness of the situation, aud
wo believe if the parents will also
use tlieir influence to Impress upon
children the fact that they can do
their bit to help along the cause of
the Empire by conserving the glass anil
the garden produce, the children will
willingly work with the authorities
and help to put a stop to this wasteful and malicious damage.
Tho Cranbrook District covers a
wide urea of country, tlie characteristics of Which, wo all know, include agricultural, mining and lumbering resources. Most of us are aware of thu
importance of lumbering and agriculture to a country, aud it is foolish to
try to minimize tiie effect of their operations, but no one will contend tliat
tills is a purely agricultural country,
nor can it be maintained tliat the timber of tlie district ls Inexhaustible, as
uo reafforestation ls being attempted,
As tlie population of our western
country is always changing, it is only
those who lived here duriug the good
mining times or those wiio have been
brought up iu a mining locality who
really understand and realize what
an effect paying mines liave on the
Has anyone attempted to estimate
the effect on the Cranbrook District

montii. would not that stimulate every
fanner in the country, would Wo liavo
to ship out any produce of our farms
with two thousand men working In
mines ln the near vicinity; would not
real estate have a firm basis, uud
would not every store in the country
benefit? And how many of our lead
lng citizens would need country placet
for their leisure hours? Then why
hasn't Cranbrook a mining payroll?
The mines ure here but no oue Is willing to help and finance them; thousands and thousands of dollars have
left Crunbrook to be put In boosted
real estate, oil, mining stock In other
districts, etc., etc., but nothing spent
ut home from which we could receive
uny benefit.
There are mines iu Dakota and Alaska paying huge dividends on gold
quartz of uuder $2.00 per ton, und paying witli greut regulurity; these mines,
besides paying dividends, are supporting big communities because for every
man working ln a mine there ure at
least three people outside dependent
on his work. These mines, being gold
mines, are not affected by transportation nor smelters nor the prices of metals and are therefore stable and every
community should do its best to help
finance any such mining venture, for
its own prosperity, if the presence of
such ore Is demonstrated.
In this district we liave a large camp
of this self same ore, of known higher
valuo than what Is paying elsewhere;
the ledges are very wide and continuous, they have received tiie strong endorsement of the Dominion Oologlst
and mining engineers; what is wanted
now to demonstrate, with absolute certainty, their commercial value Is
depth; up to tho present, only about
150 feet of depth has been attained,
and the ore still carries Its value, hilt,
of course, to warrant tlie construction
of a milling plant, a great deal more
development Is required, and why Cannot this be arranged','
Here is un old plucer erook, with
the citizens will be glad to tuke this
load off the shoulders of tlie boys
when they are given uu opportunity
to contribute, and will loyally support
the hand and keep it going, for without funds no organisation can long be
kept on Its feet, and it is a recognized
fact that a band does much to enliven and advertise a town.
The grave flre conditions until recently prevailing in the Kort George
district are emphasized lu telegraphic
reports received by the Minister of
Lands. Niutey five fires have been
reported lo date, twenty of which are
still burning, hut which It is hoped
will be extinguished by tho heavy
rains reported when the lust advice
was dispatched. Large areas around
Finlay Forks Jiuvu beeu swept by
flre with damage to timber and property. Five million feet of timber have
boen burnt ut Stuart River, and
similar amount ut Alesa Lake. From
Hazelton forest district, several small
fires are reported during tlie week,
tlie southern division experiencing a
dry spell, while light showers have
fallen iu the central and western divisions. New vegetation ls slow in
growth, and unless more rain falls
the crops threaten to fall. Hot cleur
weather with westerly winds is recorded by tho Prince Rupert district,
with cooler weather In prospect, the
total fires to date being eleven, with
hut little damage, Lillooet reports coot
and cloudy weather with showers. It
Is nflted that conditions in the Chilco-
tiu district ure still unfavorable for
good range. The flre situation in
Hit* Cruubrook division is safe for the
time being, cool weather conditions
prevailing with occasional showers.
Thirteen fires were observed as the
result tif an electrical storm at Lardo
on the 10th Inst., and rains were general throughout the Kootenay from
tlie 17th to the 1Mb inst, with occasional local showers later. The floods
are Interfering with the lumber industry, closing some mills and holding up
freight. The week under review opened iu tlie Vernon district with hot
and dry conditions and dangerous fire
hazard, checked by heavy rain In midweek, which was followed by hot
weather again. A continuance of fires
in logging slash is reported by the
Vancouver forest district, with some
damage to tugs and equipment.

Judges .Wake Kind Inspection ot
A committee consisting of Mesdames
Fenton, J. Palmer and Russel, representatives ot the Women's Institute,
were kindly driven by Otto Gill, on
Thursday afternoon to judge tbe different gardens In the Home Gardens
competition Tor 1910. While thc list
of uames wus not so large as last
year, they found everyone interested
in  their work.
Tlie lirst cull was mude at the home
of Russel Leask and it wus necessary
to remove his mime from the list as
iiis pltit had been flooded, thus be had
been unable to plant his seeds In time.
At Joe Stojaek's home they found he
was cultivating his plot In a nearby
lot, where no one was residing so he
has not tho use of water. However,
lie has a very sturdy garden consisting of vegetables well weeded and
cultivated. The next call was at
the home nf Kltzubeth Chupinun who
Is cultivating flowers, which with
little more sunlight wlll surely well
repay hor careful cart-. At Ray Scott's
home they found u well cured for gar
den and a good Variety of vegetables
growing vigorously. Walter Laurie Is
also trying his hand at raising flowers.
They seem to require more careful
iiUeiidiou than the vegetables but the
committoo  fool   sure  that  on   their
next   visit   he   will   liaVO   u   Viirley   of
blooms well worth looking at. Connie ttassett, who is the youngest In
the compotitton, Is doing Iter best with
it tiny plot of flowers and what her
garden lacks in size is made up for In
variety  of  kinds  und   cure.    Albert
Webb has his plot very neatly arranged and well cultivated, with un excellent variety of vegetables and few
flowers 'around the edges.' Warren
Howness has his plot out of tlie city
so tlio committee were unable to see
It and were sorry to have to cross liis
name off our list. The last garden
Visited was Isabolle 1'arker's whicli
was found a greut distance from her
own home. She is going to have a
busy time weeding and carrying water,
as there Is no water on her plot, but
her plants so far are sturdy and of
good variety. We expect to find
everything in good shape on our next
visit as she will now have the time to
give the needed care.
The committee were vtjry much
pleased with tthe interest shown and
feel that the home garden plots for
children is a good plan and trust that
next year there will he more competitors which will thus help to make
Cranbrook a city beautiful.

Strong Condemnation ol
B. C. Prohibition Act
by a Prohibitionist
Suggests thai Act be Withdrawn, Stricter License Regulations Established and Prohibitionists Work, Under
New Leaders, for Real Prohibition Law.
Copy of Telegram Said to Have lieen SimiI by Vancouver
Prohibitionists to Jonathan Rogers al Victoria. Staling
That Act as Brought Down was nol Satisfactory.
in   the   Vancouver   "News-Advertiser"   ol'   Kuiiihiv.   June   i,
'appeared an "Open Letter irom a prohibitionist tn Prohibitionists", in  which  Is outlined  ihe great  ill ami Un taction  of '
many  Prohibitionists wlih the terms of the  I'roll tuition   Rotor-
en dnm as, with tlio approval or lenders ot the prohibition Movement, the measure wns passed by the Legislature for submission to (hi* electors.
The letter. In lull, Is ns follows:
As \\ Uffllong believer ill tlle principles ol' Prohibition, I have followed with great interest tin* campaign whieh has boen curried on iu
British Columbia for tiie lust year and over for the purpose of writing
on the statute hooks of the provlneo u law whicli would effectively put
un end to the liquor traffic.
Ah the movement grew lu force und crystaltzod iu the form of the
People's Prohibition Party, I began to have hopes that something definite might he accomplished, and I climbed on tho hand wngon and
"did my bit" for the cuuse.
I have watched with great Interest und followed every move of the
Executive und Committee of 100 of the People's Prohibition Party In
its dealings with tlte provincial authorities while tho Referendum Bill
was being framed; my acquaintance with the leaders of the movement being such us made It possible for me lo keep fairly close in
touch with the moves oE the game at Victoria.
Tlie one point on which I differed from the lenders of the prohibition
movement wus on the subject of Compensation, a question on whicli
I, witli muny otlier Prohibitionists, believed the liquor interests had a
rightful claim. 1 yielded, however, when tlie executive hood of the
movement firmly put his foot upon allowing any assertion us to the
justice on this claim, although 1 gladly welcomed the words of Premier
Bowser on the second reading of tlie Act, when lie admitted that there
might pe some justice in it, and stated the Government's decision in
favor of the appointment of a commission to investigate the subject,
should the referendum curry.
I muke the nbove somewhat lengthy statement iu order to show that
I havo the right to say whut I nm about to say, und that 1 spook wltli
full knowledge or the facts of the cuse.
I say, emphatically, tluit the Prohibition Measure, which is
being sent lo tlie electors at the Referendum Poll, Is a farce
from the Prohibition point nf view. In this view I am supported hy many Prohibitionists with wham 1 have conversed
since the Act was brought down. As a mailer of fact, I havc
lint talked with a single Prohibitionist who lias nut mlinlllcd
that there were many weak points In Hie Act.
I would probably be branded as a traitor to the Prohibition cause
for making the above statement, and, should my name be connected
with this letter, be tho recipient of caustic comment from the Prohibition leaders. If in making this statement I am betraying any trust, let
it be known that my action is not in uny way more reprehensible or
worthy of condemnation than the statement of the ollicial organ of the
movement, whicli, allegedly speaking for the Prohibitionists of the
Province, editorially says that the "Act is satisfactory."
The lightest form In which I cun express my opinion of lhc
action and policy nf these who had charge wi lhc Act at Victoria, for the Prohibition Party, Is to say Iiml they grossly
erred Iu currying out Ihe instructions given them. This sentiment Is far below Ihe mark among the expressions of opinion
which are now being fairly openly made hy Prohibitionists
throughout Vancouver.
The course followed hy the' Prohibition lenders at Victoria during
the closing days of the consideration of the Act is Inexplicable, In
view of the fuct that 1 am reliably informed that the following telegram
was sent to Jonathan Rogers at the Empress Hotel, Victoria on May 20,
"Prohibition Hill, as printed, Is not satisfactory to many of
Prohibitionists, and we protest most emphatically again*!
arbitrary method of keeping terms secret until lasl hours of
session, ln direct violation of promise that ample opportunity
would be given to consider terms of same, furthermore, we
protest against having anything to do with Ihe question of
Compensation or extending limit of closing hours beyond 7
p.m. The Premier's promise Is being violated in every re-
. spect, uud we call on you to fulfill your duly and protect
interests of Prohibition party.

In the light of the above telegram, I ask how the Act. as
brought down aud sent to the electors, can he declared sat-'
Tlie Act, as sent up to the electors, is not a Prohibition Act In any
legitimate sense or tlie term. It provides Tor tlie unlimited Importation
of liquor by any. resident of the province, so long as tlie order is bona
fido and tlie liquor conies from somewhere outside of the province.
These untlmUed quantities of liquor may be stored in the dwelling
house of the' purchaser without let or hindrance,
What Kind of a Prohibition Act Is Tills I
The provisions simply cover the transfer of tlie liquor business
from licensed regulation under provincial control to unlicensed business, without any control, with warehouses along the boundary lines
at British Columbia as centres of action, lt tacitly encourages the
storing of liquor In quantities in dwelling houses, a condition which
cannot bo too strongly condemned, and which I fear will in many cases lead to even worse conditions than exist under the present form
ot provincial or local license control.
This provision Is a wide-open door.
Everybody knows tliat the authorities of Washington and Oregon
are having serious dltliculty in enforcing the Prohibition laws now
prevailing In theso states. Yet, in each ense, tlie laws provide for
only limited shipments or liquor from outside points to citizens, the
limitation being both as to time and quantity. Further, such shipments can he mude only through Government authorization, which
enables u strict watch to be kept on the supply within the stale.
But in British Columbia tho Prohibition Act allows unlimited shipments from outside points to dwelling houses within Uio province.
Tiiere is absolutely no check as to quantity. There is absolutely no
government regulation or control of these shipments, If the Washington and Oregon authorities are finding difllculty fu enforcing lh'
prohibition laws lu their States, how, ror goodness' sake, will British
Columbia ever effectively enforce sucli legislation as Is now before her
I might go on und analyze the Act clause hy cluuse. As I nm inlying my own money Tor the Insertion or Ihis letter, however, I cannot
afford to do so.
1 trust that what 1 havo said will result In a close reading of the
Act by all Prohibitioniatfl, and I firmly believe thai such a course will
lead to many coming lo lhe opinion of myself und my friends, which
ls that the continuation or the old policy or I loon sod regulation, and
under rur stricter regulations than now prevail, such us the abolition
of treating, etc., Is preferable to the plans outlined lu the Prohibition
Then, witli stricter control by the Government, the withdrawal or
tho present Prohibition Act, the real Prohibitionist* of the Province
can get together, und, under new louderrt, arrange for u campaign
which has a real Prohibition Act as Its aim.
I will close my statement with two epigrammatic sentences whicli u
Prohibitionist friend of mine framed while discussing lhe Act. They
express In terse terms my sentiments concerning the lenders of the
Peoplo's Prohibition Party as now organized:
"We sent them lo Victoria with Pledge Cards which
asked for Prohibition bread. They, band us, lu return, a hollow goldl-rlck."
"We sent them to Victoria with our cleclornl birthright. They hand us, In return, a political mess of
I know that my statement wlll be criticized because it Is being
sent anonymously. All I have to sny on Mils point is that I- have
been a resident of Vancouver for many yenrs, und expect to continue
In business hero for the rest of my life. 1 hnve always been known as u
prohibitionist, nnd my frlonds nnd associates are ulso of thnt class.
Hence, I do not care to submit myself to the certain results which
might follow the attachment or my name to this statement. Further,
I expect to remain a Prohibitionist to the end or my days, und hope
to still "do my bit" for the cause when the movement for llonl Prohibition In British Columbia materialises.

More Questions On
The B. C. Prohibition Bill   '
Citizen—Say, John, I was thinking
ubout what you said last wool., nbout
that B.C. Prohibition bill not making
any difference), but that I could get all
tho whiskey I want "even a waggon
load if I Hked". Now I've found out
that I will havo to send away across
the country for it, nnd what I want to
know now is WHO WILL l'AV THE
EXPRESS OX IT. And what will I
do while it is coining? Maybe I'll die
of thirst or maybe I'LL FOROET I
John—But didn't I toll you that you
could pet two bottles at the doctors
by just phoning him, or you could got
as much as five gallons at the drug
Citizen—Yes, you toldfmo tluit, but
I'm wondering where I'll got a doctor
who will give me two bottles in one
dose of medicine Then I wondered
what I'd do if another guy had been
to tho doctor before me and got the
two bottles because two bottles is all
tho doctor can have at onco. Then
thoy toll me tho druggist can't soil mo
fivo gallons as you said, bdt that he
can only give me a little drop in a bot
tlo of medicine and in order tn got
thut 1 have to chaee the doctor around
for a proscription for it. Then If th
druggist should happen to have had a
big run on his five trillion*, I will have
to wait till noxt morning till ho can
slip round to the government vendor
to get a fresh supply.
John—Oh yes, but perhaps ono of
your frlonds may have been able to get
In ono ot those waggon loads I was
telling you about.
Citizen—Yes, but the Act says that
"He Can't Sell mc Any oi IL" he can't
"Ulvo" It to me and I tell you I ain't
ovor found follows Hitting up at nlghtH
to GIVE whiskey away. I've always
luul to buy it, and always had to pay
cash on the spot for It too. Thou besides ho could only give me enough to
aggravate mo, for if lie should make
mo drunk, the Act says both of us
should get Into trouble. And eny, did
you know that If I was to do anything
foolish and hurt anybody while I wus
drunk, they can fine (ho follow that
gave me the whiskey. $1500.
John- Oh, hut you nro thinklrt*; too
much of whnt tlio net CAN do, 1 was
trying to kIiow ymi how you can MEAT
the law. "THAT'S what you want to
think about,"
Citizen That's alright John, but I'M
HRITISH nud 1 respect the laws of my
country, boci use when anybody comes
aud molests mo or my homo or family
l expect the law to protect me and
what I say is "If you want tlie law
to respect you, when then You respect
tlio Law," Besides. I've been reading
tliat Act, and say, It's stiff. They've
got the government, vendor and the
druggist and the doctor cinched down
tight. They've pot to keep a record
of every drink they let a fellow have
and that has to go to the Superintendent of Police and lie has to send It to
tho attorney general- and say, I'm not
looking for notoriety. I was brought
up respectable like.
John—Oh well, you needn't worry,
Prohibition doesn't prohibit and there
will bo more whiskey sold than ever
Citizen—Well now, I was reading
only yesterday that in the States,
whore prohibition is going strong, that
10S whiskey factories wont out. of business last year nud that thero was ti
decrease In the manufacture of whiskey of about 41,000,000 gallons. Say,
that looks like prohibiting to me, and
while there may bo some weaknesses,
as you call them, in the 11. 0. prohibition Bill, lt looks to mo like a pretty
stiff ono and ono ns would keep a lot
of money in legitimate business at
