The lumber Industry iu the first industry of the province and upon Its
success depends tho prosperity of the
province. There are over 400 sawmills and 800 logging camps ln the
province employing over 60,000 men.
The timber industry represents one-
half tlie Industrial capital, one-half
the payroll and 37 per cent of the
nnnual production of wealth in the
province of British Columbia. The
Importation of lumber has been the
most serious problem that the lumbermen havo had to face and the
meeting the first ot the week framed
a petition to the Domllon government
asking that a governmental commission make a thorough investigation
into the cause ot the deplorable state
of tbe lumber business and asked
the board ot trade and both political
parties to endorse same.

"PatrloUim ud Production" Is the
slogan adopted by tbe Canadian Department of Agriculture in the work

In this connection Win. E. Scott, superintendent of Institutes, has forwarded a communication to A- H.
Webb, the local secretary, stating
that the matter ts receiving the careful attention of tbe government at
thc present time, and trusts that some
action wlll be taken in the matter. It
has already been urged on the provincial government officials by the Hon.
Martin Burrell, Dominion minister of
agriculture. Mr. Scott maintains
that it should be made compulsory
ud that all Imported egga should be
stamped with the name ol the country of origin ,not only on tbe cases,
but on the eggs themselves, ud would
go further ud make it compulsory
that all dealers selling Imported
eggs should be compelled to hsve
conspicuous placards put up stating
that they were using imported eggs.
Mr. Webb wrote ssklng ft the government could supply settlers with
seeds who could not afford to buy
tbem themselves. In this psrtlcu-
lir Mr. Scott replied u follows:
"I regret to sty that the department
cannot undertake the free distribution of seeds. It Is true that the

the Dominion government setting'
forth the serious state ol trade in the
interior of this province during past
years, through the rapid decline of thc
lumber Industry by the loss of the
only available market for the product of thc interior mills, caused
primarily by the dumping of American lumber at less than the cost ot
Ita manufacture.
Your petitioners wish to call attention to the fact that tho dumping
clause has been inoperative and therefore failed to fulfil the functions for
which It was framed.
Lumber Is the only product of Canadian workmen not protected.
And whereas, many applications
have been submitted to the past nnd
present government praying for a
small measure of Justice for this im-;
portant industry, so far without j
much effect.
And whereas, tho Htoady nnd continuous decline In this business has
had a very serious effect, not only on
this industry, but upon thc greater
part of the community dependent
upon It for support.
And whereas, your petitioners realise the dlfllciilt position tho Dominion
government Is placed In by the supposed iiutdKonlsui of the agricultural
Interests through the Imaginary fear
that prohibitive prices would be
charged to farmers it protection was
granted, and also that statements
hive been mado that exorbitant j
prices for lumber (which is ono of tho
first necessities of thc settler on
lind) hav i been unfairly exacted. •
And whilst your petitioners are
awaro that there Ib truth tn such
statements, tho exactions were not
Hide by those who manufacture tho
lumber but by the middlemen and In
some cases by Illegal compact.
Your petitioners therefore humbly
pray that a commission u* appointed
with power to subpoena and examine
witnesses under oath, that thoy be Instructed to make thorough Investigations throughout the provinces ol
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta
and alBO British Columbia, that manufacturers and their books and accounts be examined, bo that your government and the public may learn the
real facts touching this Important
Your petitioners humbly suggest also that the commission should
be endowed with power to Investigate and report upon any unlalr

work done hy Mr. Fred Russell last
year. 1 think with the assistance
rendered by Mr. Russell the land rush
was bundled In a most excellent manner. Every man knew Just what
land he wanted, and as a result there
was no confusion In numbers. 1 believe practically all the good land
was takeu.
The bounl did not accomplish as
much during the year as they could
have had It not been for tho large
amount of accounts left from the former year, which had to bo paid.
These required over half the total
amount collected (luring the year.
The following Is the statement of
xpressed themselves favorably toward such a movement.
A special committee, consisting of
Messrs. J. p. Fink and C. It. Ward
were appointed to interview the city
council with regard to the grant for
this year.
The legislation committee was asked to go into the matter of the bylaws
of the board and suggest changes and
report at the next meeting.
Thc secretary was instructed to
write the Dominion government regarding the establishment of an experimental farm In the district. The
Department of Agriculture having
taken such an interest in greater
production this year the board felt
that now was the time to ask for the
establishment of this long-agltated-
for institution.

There waa nothing definite to say weeks before the circular was sent
when I ever would get any money for out to you.    You will take notice to
my plant. I was to receive no Interest. I was to have no security. The
only thing In tbe agreement which
said anything about paying for the
plant was that In the event of me getting fired off my $30 job I would be
paid $50 a month off thc purchase
price. I was to take their word for
tliis. That is Mr. Watts' word, because the general meeting was to be
refused any say in the matter and
consequently could refute any responsibility ul lt. But even if the
$50 a month did come through it would
take me SKVKN YEARS to get paid
for my plant, no Interest and no security during that seven years.     But
I refused to bo caught napping.

The Cranbrook Prospector announced in tho Inst Issue that It would
not be Issued again for financial reasons, the paper not having paid expenses for some time past. Mr.
Christian has kept the paper alive I
against great odds, but the pressure
has grown so Irksome thut he finally
decided to close. These are stormy :
days for. the journalist und nearly
one-third the papers published in
Canada have ceased publication since)
tho outbreak of wur. The London
Times recently announced a decrease |
of 30 per cent In Its business whicli
would mean the curtailment of its!
dividend nnd the Times Is one of the
oldest nnd most conservative news-
papers In existence. It is usually j
looked upon as tlio dean of news-
pnperdom, When tho big papers fool
the depression so strongly it is no
wonder that the country editor feels
his buck breaking under the load of
trouble with whieh he Is faced. While
the Prospector hns differed with the
Herald politically it hns always served Its purpose as an exponent of the
growth of the town and district and
the people have not reciprocated its
public spirit. It is to bo regretted
that the Prospector hns seen fit to
suspend publication.
The men    composing   Cranbrook's
quota to the third contingent are to
leave   us    Sunday—these   men    nre
about to  "fare  forth" to  play their
glorious part In the most stupendous
struggle    In    the    most   stupendous
struggle In the history of the world.
We of the mountains  are  realizing
today what real war is. We are losing some of our best men. They are
as fine a body of men, as upstanding, strong and aggregate of masculine Intelligence und physical fitness
as can be produced In any country
anywhere. Cranbrook pride Is very
fully Justified here. These men are
tho types which all true hearts*—
notably the hearts of women—admire. Emphatically they are not the
"sweet little" variety. They arc men
who know fully the nature of this
war. The news dispatches have
conveyed a fairly clear Idea of the
fact that the war area is a place
on which he who goes thither hns a
strenuous part to play.     Never was
there such tremendous loss of life, I the membebr, Mr. H. F. Green, be

pec tor Publishing Co., Ltd:
As the party who interviewed you
und sold you stock In the above company, I wish to point out to you
several misleading aud positively untrue statements which appeared tn a
circular signed by A. E. Watts, president of the Prospector Publishing
Co., Ltd., and while daled January
Uh, was only mailed out last week.
In thc first place I wish to point out
that this company was formed for the
specific purpose of amalgamating the
Prospector Ofllce and the Cranbrook
JJob Printing Ofllce, for the further
pi:r|K*se of running a good Conservative newspaper. The articles you
signed and the articles of incorporation make this very clear. The objects of the company never were carried into effect, though some $12,000 i son8 wny i wouid not sign tho agree*
or more of stock out of a total of j ment.
$20,000 company, was sold nearly a
year ago.
Of the seven directors in the company, I claim only two have paid ir
my money to the company,
others had, as I understand the law,
to hold me to that. In the first place
It Is too ridiculous to be seriously
considered and In thc second place a
directors' meeting, even If they were
qualified directors, cannot undo the
wish of a general meeting. In the
.same resolution they decided to pay
the vendors with notes of the shareholders, endorsed respectively, by the
company. At the same time I would
he unable to collect these notes without thc consent of the so-called directors .which consent they would not
give. Therefore, I was asked to
make them a straight present of my
plant. But even at that and taking
them at their own game they never
followed lt up to offer to turn these
the month and more which elapsed between the dating of tho circular and
the receiving time..   It was settled in
part by the using of $200 of company .
monies which never should have been j
used.     What business had these bo- j
called directors to use $200 of monies j
paid ln for a certain purpose, when
they knew that that purpose was not
going  to   be   accomplished,   because
they would not live up to the instructions of the shareholders ns laid down
at general meetings.    This $200 was,
In my opinion, wrongfully obtained
from the funds and wrongfully used.
Many subscribers when they seen
how matters were going asked to be
excused from their obligations, nnd
were excused, and yet you are circularized and urged to blow through
■with your good money.
1 paid In my check and four notes
uud was willing to pay them when the
deal went through, but not until. Yet
no circular was sent to me. Hut circulars wero sent to somu who never
to this duy huve even paid in paper.
Nearly a year ago the president and
secroatry wero authorized to sign
stock certificates and place same with
tho bank to be given out when final
payments wcre made. Thu stock certificates were immediately printed nnd
sent to Mr. Watts, but he refused to
sign them and thus matters received
one of their flrst hold-ups. I couldn't
continue selling stock when the president wouldn't sign the stock certificates. Some parties paid spot
cash for all their shares, nnd yet
couldn't get their stock certificates.
One party went to one of the so-
called directors, explained that he was
going away from town, didn't want
to koep up his payments, and received back thc cash he had paid In and
the notes he had paid on. The president asked me not to say anything
about this at the next general meeting. No doubt lt would be nicer to
keep these things and all crooked
things hushed up.
When I went out selling stock I had

not as directors and have been a
itarty to using $200 of the company
money, which ln my opinion, is a
straight misappropriation of funds as
the objects of the company have never
been carried out, and these so-called
llrectors, as 1 wlll show later, are thc
ones who have kept the company from
jolng forward.
Clause 1 ot the circular states that
in November last Mr. F. M. Christian
signed up an agreement to transfer
Uie Prospector plant to the company,
iccordlng to instructions at a general
ind also a directors' meeting. In conjunction with this clauses 6 and 7 of
the circular state that Mr. Oarrett
iecllnes to sign an agreement and
transfer his plant. Last November
it a general meeting a resolution was
passed that the president and secretary should get together with the two
vendors and draft agreements, that
these agreements should then be submitted to a later meeting. This was
never done and has not been done to
this day. On the contrary Mr. Christian was submitted an agreement
signed by Mr. Watts on behalf of the
company, engaging to buy the Prospector. Mark you the general meeting of shareholders had no chance
whatever to Bay whether this agreement was satisfactory to them. Mr.
Christian signed the agreement. Mr.
Watts presented a simitar agreement
to me, but I refused to sign it for several reasons, among them tho following:
(a). The (.cneral meeting according
to a unanimous resolution was to
ratify tho agreement before It was
signed, which they wcre given no opportunity to do.
(b). Thc agreement was signed by
A. E. Watts In tho capacity of president and general manager of tho Prospector Pub. Co. I told Mr. Watts at
the time that he wns not general man-!
nger, that he had never been appoint-'
ed hh such, and I would not rocog-'
nlze him as such, until he had re- ]
cdved the appointment. Ho admitted
that ho was a self-appointed general
manager, hut that as ho was heavily
Interested In the Prospector he had
to protect himself. I said that didn't
go with me.
(c). The agreement I was asked to
sign bound tho company to blre Mr.
Christian and myself at salaries of
130 per week. I felt that while the
position and the salary might be very
nice indeed, I felt it would be wrong
to compel a company wishing to purchase my plant to give me a job, and
the company thus being compelled
without having even a chance to go
over the agreements and know what
they aro doing. Possibly the shareholder does not see why he should be
compelled to give me a steady Job at
$30 per, Just because he is along with
others buying my plant. Further, In
this connection, the agreement said
that uny time wages couldn't be met,
the company could pay part and credit
mc with tho rest. This could soon
get Into a regular thing of paying me

not done the company has not fulfilled its objective, and you cannot be

tries to tell you that your notes can

Management   Cancelled   Engagement
Owing te the Ileadllarr Being
There was keen disappointment
felt by theatre goers this week owing
to the "Pantages" performance being
cancelled. In explanation the managers of the Auditorium wish to inform their patrons that, on account
of thc headline act "The Serpent of
the Nile" (Cleopatra! being omitted
from the bill, they did not feel justified in asking their patrons to pay
the regular price for a three or four
act performance with the feature act
missing and advised tlie manager of
show company that it would be detrimental to the Interests of the local
management to put on such a performance at usuul prices.
Since the managers of the Auditorium reduced the prices of admission
from 75c and &'0e. to Hoc. and 2.1c.
It has been a rather hard task to induce the headline act of the Pantages vaudeville to stop off here owing to the falling off in tho proceeds
caused by the reduction.
In order to get the full Pantages
bill (5 acts Including headllner) here
next week the managers of the Auditorium w re compelled to offer them
special Inducements and hope that
their efforts to keep up the standard of high class performances nt
the Auditorium will be appreciated
by thc theatre-goers and that the
attendance at next week's performance will show lt.
Next Week's Attraction
Herbert Lloyd, the International
comedian, who attempts everything,
but does nothing except amuse is
billed to appear at tbe Auditorium
theatre next week in his burlesque
on vaudeville, "The King of Diamonds." There are four clever dancing girls in this act, which Is purely
a burlesque ot the average acts seen
every week on a vaudeville program,
such as Juggler, Contortionist .Acrobat, Magician, Impersonator, Crayon
Artist, Musician, Quick Change Artist, Wire Walker, Animal Trainer,
etc. Herbert Lloyd and bis clever
company have performed thoir act
In sixteen different aountrles, Lloyd
speaking and singing ln six different
languages. Lloyd is the "kernel" of
all the nuts, no rhyme or reason-
simply to amuse, and hc is sure to
make a tremendous hit with Auditorium audiences.
Another star act at the Auditorium
next week will be Billy Zimmerman,
America's 'greatest mimic actor and
entertainer who gives new and original Impersonations.
Tom and Stacia Moore are not new
to. the Pantages, they appeared here
some time ago and made a popular
appeal. This time thoy have a new
act entitled "The Dream Girl," which
ls even better than their last act
which the audiences are sure to appreciate. Other acts are those of
Max Wiley and Mellsea Ten Byck In
