the engineer for several months at
least. He had no complaint to make
concerning the ability or work of Mr.
O'Hara. Alderman Campbell thought'
that the city was to engage another
city engineer that the position should
be open for all applications. Alder-
man Genest expressed the opinion
that the city had too much valuable
property at stake to dispense with the
city engineer. The vote resulted In a
tie, the Mayor declaring the motion
lost.
Alderman   Leask   proposed  that  a
committee be named for the purpose
of   buying  the   Cranbrook    Electric
Light plant for thc city.    He stated
tluit  most  of  tlie  cities  In   western
Cunada now owned their own electric
light plants and thut Cranbrook should
gut  in  line.    If the city  was going*.
to encourage and foster new  Industries they must be in a  poultion to,
grant  concessions  in  thc  mutter ofl
power.   Tlie rate for power asked
present  by   tlie   Electric   Light
was absolutely prohibitive of Its use,
The company granted 26 per cent discount for electric lights und only 15 j
per cent for power.   Motion by Hick-
botliani and Leask tliat a committee
of three be appointed by the mayor to
investigate into the feasibility of purchasing the system of the Cranbrook
Electric Light Co., was carried and

Hungerford, and beg to submit for
your consideration the following report:
From Porteous it Is possible to follow the draw utilised by the Staples
Lumber company for four miles on a
rising 0.8 per cent grade, thence easterly and northerly along another
draw about five miles to Camp No. 2,
on a falling 0.87 per cent grade, thenco |
northerly to Cherry creek when the
Wood's
acre of potatoes have been harvested : thorltles:-
on ground that ims only been disced.
Three cuttings ot rye hnve been made
In one seuson, while full wheat does
well.
Timber
Tlie merchantable timber has been
estimated by a competent cruiser at
one hundred ond twenty million feeti
In addition to whieh there arc over
one million ties and a very large
quantity of mine timber. About sixty
million of thc timber will go to Wycliffe to be manufactured, while thc
balance will go to Wardner to be sawn

medicine made that will do as much
towards saving your health and thus
helping you save your money as Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion. It Is a medicine that gets right at the trouble aud

it doesn't do this by means of alcohol

and profit to all who attend. The
public Is Invited.
Two Basket Ball games were played In the gymnasium Monday evening. The first game between two junior
teams, resulting in a win for the
Giants over the Athletics in a hard
fought game. The second game between the Thistles and Commercials
was a battle royal, right up to the
tnd of the game. In the first half,
the Thistles played thc more aggressive game and at half time, led by a
good margin. But In the second half
the Commercials came on the floor
with a new spirit, driving the Thistles back to a defensive game. At the
call of time It looked like anybody's
game but the big margin gained In
the first half saved the Thistles from
probable defeat. The score 22-13.
These teams will play the last of the
series of three games next Monday at
eight o'clock sharp.
Several ot the boys are rounding In
to shape for truck work throughout
the summer. There has been a very
definite increase in tlie number of
members who take advantage of thc
swimming pool this past week—the
milder weather Is most suggestive of
a "dip."
Next week should see a good start
made ln getting the tennis court,
lawn bowling court and athletic field
In good shape for out door games and
sports.
On behalf of the boys now getting
Into shape, we challenge the V.M.C.A.
or any other organization or group of
Athletes to a road race of two miles,
or a relay race for tbe some distance,
and a series of races in the Gym next
Tuesday evening. Come on boys, get
into the game—take this up quick,
Some of the members have clubbed
together and purchased a new Victor
gramaphone tor the club. The management Is delighted with this splendid spirit, we hereby express our appreciation by a hearty vote of thanks.
This line Instrument will be put to
work this week.
We look for a big crowd at the Gymnastic Competition Friday night, be
sure and be one of them.

HEWHINC FO* THE HOME
CRANBROOK, a C.
til. The meeting wa» called to order
by the Deputy Minister, W. B. Scott,
superintendent of institutes. Credentials were called for, after which the
meeting got down to business.
Cranbrook Institute had but four
resolutions to be discussed; but a person may be able to judge how long
It would take to get through the business If a Resolution committee were
not appointed two days before to
handle the work und sift what should
really be placed before the meeting.
A total of 196 resolutions were condensed down to 45. This was the
third time 1 stood up for the same
resolution for the opening up of timber license expired lands, being opened up for homesteaders. It has ul*
ways passed the Annual Conventions,
and although now nu accomplished
fact, 1 think our institute deserves'
some credit. 1 myself did not rest 1
until I had brought it to the notice of
the people of Cranbrook and vicinity
in public meetings. Credit should
also be given to A. B. Watts, A. ll,
Macdonald and several others, who
helped to keep the ball rolling, being
eventually brought to the notice of
the B.C, Government, that this was a
live issue with the people of this district.
Other resolutions dealing with
School Taxes, Gophers, and 1-aans to
Farmers were carried.
There were between 80 and 90 delegates present and 1 think it was the
best meeting that I have attended.
Harmony prevailed throughout and
although some delegates thought
their resolutions should have had
better treatment, they recognised
that the majority must rule.
Several addresses were given, two
of which deserve special mention:
'Cooperation" by Mr. Hayward, of
Cowiclian, V.I., who was chairman of
the Royal Agricultural Commission;
and Mr. Lucas, who showed what
New Zealand had done by Govern-
men cooperation. The population of
that colony stood with a per capita
of $206 per head, man, woman and
child. I also Interviewed Mr. Scott
the deputy minister, in regard to striking tbe name of Parole ol and calling

At the close tlie Premier seemed loath

1 uppnrent, Mr. Drury wus master of his

Mr. Drury's claim was thut rural j
j depopulation is a result largely ot tbe
j high protective tariff, lirst imposed In
1878 and maintained ever since by
J both Conservative and Liberal govern-
linents. This, he asserted, has in-
: creased the cost to the farmer of
everything he must buy, including
p   a, | labor and machinery.    The price of
secondary products, such as dairying! the liberal party would be a step in I
and hog raising. This chungc neca-ss-: thia right direction, it would not In my !
Itates the employment of more labor i opinion, prove to be a panacrea for

; what In* has to Bell 1ms not been af-
; footed. This has placed an unfair bur-
I den on the farmer, It has enabled men
engaged in protected industries to
! make undue profits and has led many
{farmers to leave the less profitable
| for the more profitable industries,
I This has had tho effect of reducing
farm population to a point where far*
mers can no longer supply the city
population with enough food products,
especially those requiring much labor.
This, again, has Increased the cost of
these products to tho towns man and
constitutes the problem of the high
cost of living.
As a remedy Mr. Drury recommend-
cd that the tariff should be reduced ou
many articles purchased by farmers,
Including agricultural implements,
and that the British Preference should
be increased until within live years
there shall be complete free trade
between Canada and the Motherland.

The Occasion
Mr. Drury appeared before the Gov-
I eminent as a member of the farmers'
{deputation which waited upon the gov-
I eminent in Ottawa during December.
! Thc deputation represented thc far-
I mers' associatolus of Ontario and three
j prairie provinces. Other members
lof the deputation spoke. They asked
j for other concessions on behalf of the
j farmers of Canada. It fell to Mr.
Drury's lot to urge reductions in the
tariff as it affects the farmer.
The members of the Cabinet present Included Hon. W. T. White, Finance Minister; Hon. Martin Durrell,
Minister of Agriculture; Hon. Geo. E.
Foster, Minister of Trade and Customs; Hon. Robert Roger, Hon. L, P.
Pelletier, Hon. J. D. Hazcn, Hon. A. E.
Kemp, and other distinguished men,
I including members of thc Senate and
' the House of Commons.
"No one whose eyes are open,"
; said Mr. Drury in opening, "but must
; admit that wa are facing a serious
crisis, as shown by the steadily tn-
; creasing cost of living. This has not
j been caused by any recent events.
j Instead, it Is due to conditions that
have been developing during the past
80 years.
When we examine prices we find
that the primary products of the farm
: such as wheat, oats, etc., are low lu
' price. This Is because they require
comparatively little labor to produce
as compared with secondary products,
such as cheese, butter, beef and pork.
The high prices paid by our consumers are paid for these secondary products. There Is a wide difference,
also, In the prices paid the producers
and the prices paid by the ultimate
consumers. Wheat Is low, but flour ia
high. Until recently, cattle prices
have been low but meat has
been expensive to the consumer.
These conditions are not due to anything the (present government has
done. They have been developing for
years. They are both the cause and
thc result of our declining rural population.
'When wc examine thc census figures we And that the high mark of
rural population In Ontario was In
1881. While It Is true that many of
our farmers have moved from Ontario
to the west, this has been offset by the
emigrants who have come to this
country, but who have declined to
settle on farms.
"In Ontario conditions growing out
of this decrease rural population
have become serious. I have here the
census figures for 1681 and 1911 of five
representative townships In Ontario.
These show that during the 30-year
Interval, the rural population of these
townships decreased as follows:
Oro Townshrip, Slmcoe County, population 1881, 4,566; population 19U,
3,485.
Innisfll township, Slmcoe County,
population 1881, 6,490; population
1911, 3,499.
West Zorra township, Oxford County, population 1881, 3,430; popuatlon
1911, 2,603.
Wellesley township, Wellington
County, population 1881, 6,762; population 1911, 4,767.
McKlllop townshrip, Huron County,
population 1881,2,685; population IOU
2,239.
"This decline in rural population
Is not due to Increased efficiency on

The Ileal Heason
Hon. Martin Burell: 'The furmer
does not have to buy so much as the
man in the city."
Mr. Drury: "No, but farmers do
not live on air. It costs them something to produce the food they consume. Thc real reason for the rural
decline Is because farmers have to
buy most of their goods from protected Industries. These Industries have
so advance the price of the goods
the farmer buys that they have increased the cost of living not only to
the farmer but to ministers, teachers.
Mr. Drury: "If that Is the case, I
would point out that the two Industries tbat show the greatest development are binder twine and cream separators. These have no protection.
The fact that they have grown without protection indicates that other Industries could also. As matter of
fact, as our census figures show, the
combines that have been formed behind our tariff walls have enabled the
large factories to drive the smaller
ones out of business, with the result
that even less labor is employed in
these industries than 20 years ago."

A Question and An Answer
tlons, we believe tbey could. Under
existing conditions many of our manufacturing concerns are making undue profits. Let me cite tbe case of
the Dominion Textile Co. Some years
ago this company reduced the wages
of Us employees under the pretence
that the Canadian tariff was not high
enough to protect it sufficiently a-
gainst the competition of British manufacturers. When the employees
struck, the Government appointed a
commission to Investigate the circumstances.    This commission found
Hon. Mr. White: "The tariff has
remained practically unchanged since
1878, while the rapid increase ln the
cost of living has taken place during
the past few years. How do you account for this?'
Mr. Drury: "As 1 stated at the outset, the effect Is cumulative. Oreat |thul *« comP«V had been making 50

turers over the farmers and enabled
the protected Interests to pay wages
to the working man which the farmer
could not equul. This helped to build
up the cities at the expense of the
country. For a numbr of years farmers expected that each year would
bring about an Improvement, but as
conditions continued to opress them,
they began to leave their farms in an
endeavor to do better elsewhere.
While some may have left because of
the so-called lure or the city, I believe
their numbers were few. The people
I know who have left their farms did
so because of the better opportunities
they had to Invest their money elsewhere while obtaining a more liberal
return for their labor.
Tbe Decrease In Farm Population
"The best evidence of how serious
this decline in rural population has
been Is shown by the fuct that in 1881
the rural populntion of Canada was
4,324,810, nnd the urban population In
towns over live thousand, 649,542. ln
1611,the rural population. In spite of
our Increased immigration, had de-
cerased to 8,924,894, while thc urban
population had Increased to 3,280.444.
"Thia  condition  ia   utterly
It Is natural for us to suspect that we
have many more like the Dominion
Textile Co.
"This Is a question of national importance. We should consider It from
the standpoint of Canada as a whole.
Nothing but national disaster can
happen If thc character and number of
our rural population continues to decline as It has of recent years."
This concluded Mr. Drury's evidence

to follow, Mr. Drury gave way to
them. It Is well that farmers are beginning to think aud talk out on these
subjects. We will obtain the attention and respect of all other classes

Fong gave notice today that he will
not do any more laundry work for ]
corporations.   Ills reason:
Fong laundered a towel for thet
.■anadlaii Pacific railway company {
two mouths ago, charging 12 cents
for the job. His bill was sent to thej
local agent mid forwarded by him to!
Winnipeg, where it was "edited." A
i'oucher for 10 cents wns sent to him j
In the regular course of business. He
spent five cents for street-car fare,
riding to the company's office, where;
he signed the voucher ln the presence;
of the agent, receiving the amount due'
after he had pruv-d Indentificatlon.
To return to his tubs and sad irons,
Fong was obliged to pay a second j
fare of five cents. The net result was
the loss of an hour's time, 10 cents!
spent on car fares and nothing to
show for his work. Fong declares he
has washed his last towel for & cor- j

customers proccd along slmtllar lines
it Is only a question of time when the,

Thut ones who do thc talking
Should themselves be very clean;
So before you start the story,
Look with cure, Its not a knock.

Should never throw a rock.

(Continued from Pago One)
Joseph Ryan reported on the work
of the commltee on pre-emptions and
lands, stating that the government
had opened tlie lands in advance of
the presentation of petitions which
had been signed, virtually, by thousands. The committee had done tlieir
work but had been anticipated by the
government,
Votes of thanks to the retiring ollicers and tu Mr. Geo. R Stevenson,
secretary ot the Kotenay Central committee, were unanimously carried.
Ten minutes for recess were declared for tin* purpose of allowing
members to puy dues and also to any
who wished to subscribe to the work
of the Kootenay Central committee.
Ou   calling  thc  session   again,   the
ilrst order of business was tho election of officers for trie year which resulted as follows:
President—A. 0. Bowness.
Vice-President—J. M. Christie.
Secretary-treasurer—J. I*. Fink.
Executive Committee—C. It. Ward,
W. A. Ncsbit, P. B. Wilson, Geo. F.
Stevenson, T. B. O'Conncll, lra Manning, Harold  Darling, J.  V. Camp-
bel.
Moved by Jt. 10. Ileattle and H. Darling tliat tho committee on railway
and transportation DO tlie old K.C.U,
committee, and this was unanimously
carried with cheers; the committee
having done some very strenuous and
valuable work iu that regard.
Moved by H. K. Beattie and G. R
Stevenson that a number of sub-committees be appointed as standing committees, was carried; and after considerable discussion the following
chairmen of commltees were named:
W. A. Nesbit, Civic and Legislation.
T. B. O'Conncll, Finance and Mem
hershlp.
H. Darling, Education and Publicity.
Ira Manning, Roads.
1*. E, Wilson, Entertainment.
J. F. Campbell, Retail Trade.
C. R. Ward, Natural Resources.
The report of the secretary and financial statement for the past year
were read and accepted.
Moved by Ira Manning and R. K.
Beattie that the committee on Natural
Resources prepare a strong resolution ami forward the same to our
member at Ottawa, Hon. R. P. Green,
urging tho establishment of an experimental farm In thc Cranbrook district.
The following resolution was moved
by R. E. Beattie and seconded by Joseph Ryan:
"Resolved that we, the Board of
"Trade of the City of Crnnbrook.
"consider it detrimental to the best
"Interests of tin: city, tliat the coun-
"oil have decided to dispense witli
"the services of the city engineer.
"It Is false economy, as we the
"business men of tho city consider
"it imperative that tho city'B utili-
"tles and public works should bo
"supervised by a competent and responsible olliciat. It will do the
"city an incalcuable amount of
"harm when it becomes generally
"known to outsiders that wc are too
"poor to keep our responsible oflle-
"lals, Prospective settlers will givo
"us 'thc-go-by' us they wilt natur-
"ally conclude that the city and
"district Is in a decrepit state, they
"will go where the prospects look
"brighter,
"Be it therefore, resolved, that
"we, the Board of Trade, ask tho.
"council to reconsider this matter!
"and reinstate Mr. O'Hara as city
"engineer."
Tlie resolution was unanimously u-
dopted.
Mr. H. Y. Parker then addressed tin*
Board of Trade on matters relating
to the water supply and the danger
existing from the settlement of the
country along the source of supply.
He stated that shacks wore helm/
built very close to the creek above
the reservoir and that the danger of
contagious diseases being transmitted
Into the water from this cause was
a very great menace to tho health of
the city. He suggested that the city
endeavor to secure a tract of laud
lying along each side of St. Joseph's
crook as a watershed and a protection
to the source of supply of thc city.
Mr. Parker stated that the laud now
belonged to the government und could
be purchased at a very nominal figure
or it might be granted to the city for
this purpose.
Mr. Parker questioned tho statement
that had been published, that Cranbrook had an ample water supply for
lire protection. This, he thought,
should he remedied immediately.
President A. C. Bowness then reviewed the water situation as lie was
familiar with the same after several
years service on tlm city council. He
stated that thc present water system
was a course of annoyance to the
council; that 163 leaks on tho main
were repaired last year. That somo
work had boon done ut the reservoir
and tho creek dammed, thus increasing the pressure. The instillation of
wooden pipes was a mistake, according
to Mr. Bowness. He opposed the expense of lowering the present mains
below freezing point until such time
as tho city could permanently Improve tho system with Iron pipes.
Motion hy Harold Darling and Joseph Ryun that matter of protection
to the source of water supply he left
In the bunds of the civic and legisla
tion committee and that they act in
conjunction with tho city council.
Carried unanimously.
Matter of :i butdlng near the C.P.R.
station for the displaying or tlie natural resources of the district for those
travelling through, as well us visitors,
ou motion by C. R. Wurd and Joseph
Ryan waa given to tho committee on
education and publicity for u report
at thc next meeting.
Vote of thanks to the city council
for the use of the eity hall for meetings aa well as for the grant of |260
was unanimously carried.
Mooting adjourned.

Some Tasks are Hard and
Some Tasks are Easy for
ADVERTISING
While Pew Indeed are Impossible
The easy advertising tasks are usually
accomplished through ONE PUBLICATION of the advertisement. The
hard advertising tasks may require REPEATED PUBLICATIONS of thc
advertising -- sometimes growing into
the dignity of " advertising campaigns."
And, while purely " transient" advertising may not complete the task set for
it, an "advertising campaign" does not
fail if sensible persistence is used. This
means that such difficult advertising
tasks as that of finding ONE BEST
BUYER for your property, or the man
who will be glad to invest in your enterprise, or the best possible tenant for that
store or business property, are SURE
TO BE ACCOMPLISHED if you
enter upon suitable advertising campaigns.
You Are Business-Like in Most Things, and Yet Not an Ad. Reader 1
If you'll take the trouble to read the
advertisements carefully, interestedly, in
this and future issues of the " Herald,"
you'll decide that you've been using poor
business judgment in overlooking them
in the past. You'll find, even in your
reading of the advertisements, buying
opportunities — clues to business opportunities that should be followed up —
money-saving and money-making Facts.

"Saturday Night" does much good
along the Bame lines by its fearless
criticisms of abuses, thereby winning
the support nnd admiration of thousands of Its subscribers. Such a Journal can be a mighty Influence for good,
in equal proportion it can do harm
and some who may suiter thereby are
not capable of defending themselves.
For instance, in the matter of developing what are honestly believed to
he genuine prospects in their Initial
stages, It Is very dlfllcult for small
companies  to obtain  funds and  the
great resources of the country are
consequently, in many cases left undeveloped. The suggestion of stockjobbing is sufficient to break up small
prospecting companies who are hon-

which the money Is subscribed, but In

work and live In luxury. The general
public know very little of tho mode of
operations except that they often part

Interesting outline of the situation Is
contained In the report of the Chief
Forester for the year 1913, which hat;
just been published, ln thc course of
which he says:-
It must be admitted that there Is
less progress in British Columbia In
the ntlllzutln of waste timber for the
manufacturer of by-poducts than else-,
where In Canada. The complete utilization   of   timber   is   only
cheap, and there Is a large buying:

An o itlot for the use of sawmill
waste may hv found In tho manufacture of sulphite pulp. A 40-ton plant
has been erected 111 connection with a
sawmill at Marshllelri, Oregon. This
plant, If It proves successful, may
cause the iitlllzialion of slmlllar material in British Columbia.

Following the close of the Mountain
Lumbermen's Association meeting at
Nelson last month, E. L. Staples, of
the Otis Staples' Lumber Company,
Wycliffe; A. K. Leitch, of the East
Kootenay Lumber Company, Jaffray;
and C. D. McNab, of tbe Baker Lumber Company, Waldo, left for the University of Idaho at Moscow, taking
with them selections of pine, yellow fir
and other stumps to be put through a
working model of a new process for
extracting by-products. The party
reached the University on Wednesday
| evening, being joined there by H. C.
! Moore, filarmore, Alta.;  N. Hanson,
'Cranbrook; It. H. Holmes, Coleman,
Alta.; and M. J. Lefon, assistant for-
1 ester of British Columbia, H. R. McMillan, chief forester, owing to Illness
j was compelled to stop off at Spokane
Several days were devoted to witnessing demon stations ln wood reduction conducted by Prof. C. H. Shattuck in the forest laboratory, the
stump samples being resolved into
tar, creosote, resin, turplntlne, pitch,
oils and other marketable sustances.
Tho visitors were given nn Illustrated lecture by Prof Shattuck on the
methods which have heen employed
by tho Department of Forestry at the
university in burning stumps In the
field, and at the same time extracting
tho acids and liquors. Twenty of
these devises can be operated by one
mau, and It Is estimated that for the
average stump a period of about 8
duys will be required for complete
destruction. By means of this process cutover land can be cleared, it is
estimated, for about $7 per acre, allowing for tbe by-products recoverable. By the blasting method the a-
verage land In thnt region could not
be cleared for less than about $115
per acre.
The visitors were enthusiastic over
Professor Shattuck's work and express the belief that the Forestry
Branch of the British Columbia Government can be Induced to Install
several small reduction and refining
plants ln tbe Interior for experimental
purposes. Thts would probably lead
to the prompt adoption of this new
plan of conservation of waste products by several of our large lumber-
lug concerns, and ultimately by many
others.—Western Lumberman. •

that It Is precisely to "hive" the Grits,
