VOLUME     27
CRANBROOK,   B.C.,  THURSDAY.   JANUARY    14th.    1926
NUMBER     47
Two Changes
In City Council
Only New Faces Will Be Major H. B. Hicks and J. J.
Not for many years was the election of the various civic offices taken
as quietly as this year. It was apparent last week that there would
not be any excess of nominations
fur the offices which would have to
he filled, and this condition obtained
on nominal ion day, when all the offices in connection with the city
were .filled   by   acclamation.
Thomas i\|. Roberts will carry on
as Mayor for his second year, being
nominated by Mrs. Annie M. Laurie
and Mrs. Marjorie Beale. Three new
aldermen nominated were as follows:
William James Flowers, whose
nomination papers were signed by
Messrs. A. C. Shankland and W. H.
Henry Buell Hicks, nominated by
Messrs. F. M. MacPherson and F. H.
Joseph Jackson, nominated by J.
A. Arnold and Miss Margaret Mc-
Alderman Flowers will thus commence upon his eighth year of service on the. city council, and Mr.
Jackson is also renewing his acquaintance with municipal business, having been a member of the first city
council elected at the incorporation
of the city twenty years ago, and
serving for several terms since,
The&e, together with Aldermen Mac-'
Pherson, Fink and Cameron, who still
have one year to serve, will constitute the 1020 city council, and the
general impression is that it is a well
constituted body, capable of carrying on the affairs of the ratepayers
adequately. An additional -nomination was made for the city council in
the person of Harry Collier of De-
laney & Sinclair, Ltd., who was nominated by Messrs. A. P. Noble and
A. D. Bridges, but Mr. Collier later
withdrew his  nomination.
For the police commission, Arthur
C. Shankland was nominated for another term by Messrs. W, II. Wilson
and F. H. Dezall. Mr. Shankland
has already served several terms on
the police commission.
For the school board, the two retiring trustees were also re-nominated, these being Mrs. F. B. Miles,
whose name was advanced Messrs.
W. F. Attridgo and J. G. Spreull, and
W. I). Gilroy, who was nominated by
Messrs. T. M. Roberts and A. Graham, Mrs. Miles was first elected in
1010. It was said that there might
be a nomination for the school board
made for from the South Ward district, hut this did not materialize on
nomination day.
Odd Fellows
of Two Towns unite tor
Joint Installation
The Women of the district, in
whose hands the raising of the
funds has been placed, are all doing
their best to make this possible for
tho crippled and deformed. Moyie
alone, hy giving a community social,
has donated the sum of one hundred
and eighl dollars and fifty cents,
with Lumberton heading the list with
three hundred and eighty dollars.
Now comes Ihe good news from Pr.
Ware, secretary for the fund, telling
that work on the Solarium, for the
crippled nnd luhercnbir children of
B.C.i will commence in the early
spring—the generous* response from
the people of tin1 province making
the start  possible.    All mothers and
friends thai know of children requiring treatment may obtain information regarding this from Miss K. Mc-
I.nehlan, director of Women's Institutes of B.C., 2SB0 Second Ave. W.,
Vancouver, B.C.
The Following is a list oF all Funds
received to date:
Miss Lippctt, for Kootenay
Orchards   $    3.25
Rev.  Mr.   Kvans,  for
Kimberley        18.15
(probably   more  to  come)
Mrs. It. A. Smith, for Moyie    108.40
Mrs.  Jacobson,  for
Lumberton     ,180.00
The school children  donated $50
of the amount from Lumberton.
Kamloopi Bull Sale
A. L. Hay, district agriculturist,
has received a preliminary announcement for the third annual provincial
fat stock show, which is held In conjunction with the Komloops Bull
Sale. This is being held under the
joint auspices of the B.C. Stock
Breeders' Association, the B.C. Department of Agriculture und the dominion department of agriculture,
It is to be held some time in April,
at a date to be definitely announced
Voting il a memorable excursion
In every way, the members of Key
City Lodge, No. 42, and Maple Leaf
Itehekah Lodge; No. 10, made a big
evening of it on Tuesday, when they
went in Force; to Kimberley for a
joint installation of the oflicers of
the four lodges. The function was
noteworthy in many ways. It watt
the first public joint installation to
be held between the lodges of the
two towns, and was as well, the first
lodge Function to be held in the new
hall which has been erected in Kim-
berley  by  Sullivun   Lodge.
At seven o'clock n special train,
manned by an Odd Fellows' crew—
and there were several spare crews
on board if they had been needed'
pulled out with a hundred and nine
passengers, almost all of them members of the two lodges, while at Wy-
cliffe eight other passengers got on,
bound for the same function. Bro,
R. W. Leonard was in charge of the
train, the other members of the crew
being Bros. Frank Doodson and
Charlie Price, while on the engine
were Bros. Frank Russell and R. J.
Hughes as engineer and conductor.
Sullivan Lodge had been expecting
quite a substantial representation
of the order from this city, and
though their expectations were some'
what exceeded, they nevertheless
rose to the occasion and proved quite
equal to entertaining on an extremely lavish scale the large company on
hand for the evening.,
Spacious as the main hall is in the
new building, it required three rows
of seats down each side to sit those
in attendance at the installation
ceremony, and then there were many
who were unable to be seated.
There were over three hundred in
attendance at the installation ceremony, at which the officers of the
four lodges were installed for the
current term. The installing officer
Bro. W. D. Gilroy, P.G., as the
district deputy grand master for the
jurisdiction, and he was assisted by
the two Rebekah district deputy
presidents, Mrs. W. D, Gilroy and
Mrs. H. Andrews, of Cranbrook and
Kimberley respectively. Assisting in
the installation ceremony also were
the following officers, all past grands
of Sullivan or Key City lodges:
Bro. Harold Andrews, grand marshal; Bro. P. Johnson, grand mar-
ihal; Bro. W. S. Green, grand her-
aid; all of Sullivan Lodge; Bro. It.
W. Leonard, grand warden; Bro. W.
S. Johnston, grand secretary; Bro. F,
G. Morris, grand treasurer; and Bro,
S. Fyles as grand chaplain. The
cercniony was carried through Faultlessly, with a thoroughness that added a great deal of impressiveness
to the proceed:n^s, and reflecting
much credit upon the installing oilier and those assisting him. Quite
deservingly they received many congratulations on the smoothness with
which the ceremony passed off, especially as it wns the first time it
had been attempted in such a pretentious form.
Following the ceremony, with Bro.
Dickenson wielding the gavel in his
new office, there were a number of
ihort speeches, in which the hope waB
several times expressed that other
gatherings of the same nature would
be held.
While the hall was being prepared
for a dance, the first sitting of the
big company adjourned upstairs to
whaUwill he the lodge proper, where
iimptuous banquet tables had been
spread. About four hundred were
served in all, nnd to say that this
lid of the program was more than
adequately looked after is not telling
half the story, Not a detail was
lacking from the supper, and among
the visitors it was remarked that the
Kimberley Odd Fellows and Rebek-
ahs had set a new high standard In
their lavish entertainment that will
need more than ordinary effort on
their part, when the time comes for
a return visit, to eclipse or even
The McKay three piece or-!
chestra provided good music for the!
dance that wound up the evening,
ind lasted till shortly before two
o'clock, nt which hour the special
train pulled out from Kimberley,
bearing a happy, If tired, throng,
everyone of whom undoubtedly felt
that the outing had been thoroughly
well worth while. Before leaving
the hall the visitors gathered in the
centre and gave hearty cheers for
their hosts.
The officers installed into the respective lodges during the official
part of the proceedings were as follows:
Key City Lodge, No. 42

V. G  Bro. F. Russell

Yank Bamford, who on Sun-
Apr. MISS. left for Nelson, with Mrs.
Bamford and family, where they are
making their home, was made the
recipient of a presentation on Saturday afternoon, at the close of the
day's work. Mr. Jos. Schell, manager of the local branch, exprescd
regret at Mr. Bamford having to sever his connection with the local
branch of the Western Grocers, and
presented him with a handsome club
bug from the staff, accompanying it
with an address, a copy of which is
given   below:
Cranbrook, B.C.,
January 9th, 1020,
Mr. F. E. Bamford.
Dear Frank: We, the members of
the staff of the Western Grocers, Limited, Cranbrook Branch, very much
regret that the time has come for
the departure of one from among us
who is so highly esteemed by all hi
fellow workers.
While leaving our brnnch, we are
pleased, however, that you are not
going out from the organization of
the Western Grocers and you will
still be considered as one of the
boys, although not belonging to our
particular staff.
We shall miss you at your accustomed desk, but your kindly and genial disposition will be long remembered by us all.
Before leaving us to take up your
duties at Nelson Branch, we ask you
to kindly accept this small gift as a
token of our friendship and esteem.
We wish you every success in your
new position, and are quite sure that
you and Mrs. Bamford will make a
host of friends in your new home.
Mr. Bamford was taken by surprise, and expresed regret at severing the pleasant relations of the
past few years.      He is taking up
position with the Nelson branch,
after having acted as accountant in
the Cranbrook branch. He has been
with the local branch since they took
over the business of the Cranbrook
Jobbers, six or seven years ago.
Work of City Council During
Past Year Reviewed; Finances Are Good
Interfering With Daughter
A peculiar case came up in the city
police court this week when a man
was arrested for interference with
his daughter in her employment at a
local hotel. It seems the parents
wanted the girl's money and insisted
on her sleeping at home rather than
at the hotel. She was forcibly detained at home and interested friends
had the police investigate and the
charge laid. Magistrate G. G. Hen-
dersoV gave the parents a real lecture, telling them as the girl was oF
age and making her own living they
had no further control over her.—

In   a  recent  issue   of
News, Mayor Roberts,
responded to an in vita th
paper to give an outlin
pal progress in this city during ihe
year just closed.      The article epitomized the work of the city council
during the yeur just closed, and the
outlook for the future in such a form
that it seemed worthy of a-more intimate presentation to the people of
the city.     Tho mayor's message was
as follows:
I am glad to he able to say that
conditions have been fairly favorable. While we cannot lay claim to
any marked degree of prosperity, yet,
considering conditions throughout
the whole Dominion, generally speaking we have little grounds for complaint.
Cranbrook has always been noted
for its steady growth, and lhat
growth has been well maintained.
It is difficult to speak of conditions
in Cranbrook without referring to
the wonderful developments al Kimberley; which so materially affects
the interests of our city. So much
has already been written on the situation at Kimberley that it is not necessary for me to enlarge upon that
subject, except it be to say that Few
oF us realize the potentialities of that
camp. Undoubtedly the immense
operations of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Compony nnd the
success which followed these operations, have done much to stimulate
interest in other mining properties
throughout the district, with which
we are so richly endowed. It is along
these lines Cranbrook must look for
its future commercial development.
Several matters of importance confronted the municipal council upon
taking office in January—that of the
dispute between the former council
and the contractor in the matter of
the Gold Creek diversion probably
being of chief importance. This dispute eventually went to arbitration.
As a result of additional work on the
ditch and the dam, the necessary diversion became an accomplished fact
early in the fall, and an adequate
supply of water should be available
for all purposes for some time.
The work of replacing the wooden
water pipes by steel pipes in the
Slaterville addition, which wns commenced in the fall of 1024, was also
completed this year, thus giving the
residents of that district a greatly
improved service. That there must
have been an enormous amount of
water jjoing to waste through the old
leaky wooden pipes, is evidenced by
the fact that the water pressure since
the installation of the steel pipes has
been increased over 10 pounds.
The works department has been
fairly active, especially along the
lines of new culverts, bridges and
sidewalks. Our system of street oiling, which has had a trial for some
three years, has not proved a success,
and at the request of a number of
ratepayers bylaws authorizing the
borrowing of money for the purpose
of laying the foundation of a sidewalk and road building program of
a permanent nature will be submitted
to the ratepayers at the forthcoming
municipal election.
During the year the city acquired
Mr. Hyde Baker's grounds for public
park purposes—a portion of which
has been set aside for the accommodation of tourists. It is generally admitted by those who have seen and
used these grounds that Cranbrook
now possesses one of the best tourist
parking   grounds   in   the   province,
The outstanding event in the calendar just at thii time, for many in
the Kast Kootenay district, is the second annual banquet of the Scandinavian Brotherhood of Kast Kooten-
the Nelson i ay, which takes place on Saturday
f this city. I evening. This is the New Year's
i from that [banquet for the installation of offi-
F munit'i-! cers. Tho installation ceremony is
to commence nt 7 o'clock, and will
take place in the room in the basement of the Hanson Block where the
meetings have been held, and will
be Followed at 8 o'clock by an adjournment to the K. 1*. Hall, where
ii dance will be held till about midnight, when the order oF things will
be changed to allow of the banquet
being put on, after which there will
be songs, speeches, etc. Altogether
a very pleasant gathering is looked
For, which is likely to be quite largely attended.
Tho Scandinavian Brotherhood, in-
fstltuted lust year, and the only society of its kind, is now operating
under a charter from the B. C. government. Mr. Isaac Burch, who
was the Founder of the organization,
and its first president, will install
the new oflicers on Saturday evening. Mr. F. Carlson of Kimberley, will be the new president of the
Brotherhood. Lawrence Veeberg,
of this city is the secretary, and
Fred Sandberg the treasurer.
Membership in the brotherhood
has increased from an original membership of eight, till there are now
on the roll a hundred and sixty

Odd Fellows who visited Kimberley with the excursion on Tuesday
evening were much impressed with
the appearance of the now hall which
the lodge there has erected. Although it has not yet been entirely
completed, there still being some inside finishing to he done, it is apparent that the new hull is in every
way a credit to everyone connected
with its erection. The main hall, with
a hardwood floor, provides an unexcelled dancing floor, and is being
equipped with an immense canvas
covering to protect the floor when
in use for gatherings other than
dances. Cloak rooms are being provided downstairs, as well. The main
floor measures about 30 by QO feet.

The annual meeting of the Cranbrook Library Association took place
in the Library on Monday evening.
There was a small attendance. Mr.
(i. .1. Spreull was in tho chair, and
Mr. .1. G. Cummings presented the
financial statement. The chairman
Intimated that the library opened for
business in July: that there were
111 members and these made good
use of the library, the attendance
during December having been 222.
The library received a grant from
the city of JIOO.OU, and a donatio!
from Dr. King of $15.00. These art
the only donations received nnd ths
library has been able to meet all of
it< expenses up to the end of the
year with the exception of $1.78.
There were certain initial expenses
la.-t year in fitting up the library,
which will not need to be taken cars
of in thi- coming year. The overhead
expenses are extremely low nnd only
amount to about $38.00 a month.
The library has had a very effici-
ent secretarj in .Mr. Cummings, whs
has done a great deal of work is

Rumsey, the librarian, not only carrier on her duties in a most satisfactory manner, but is of considerable
assistance to members wishing advice on the choice  of books.
There are on the shelves at present about 1200 hooks, and the library
has just received a consignment of
325 h'-oks kindly donated by, the
Calgary  Public  Library.
It is hoped that twelve or fifteen
citizens of the town will donati ten
or fifteen dollars each toward the
library, and that citizens will respond
to the call upon them by the canvassers r-rganized by Mrs, Wallis,
and will join tho library and donate
additional books.
The library is also making an appeal for current periodicals to place
on the table, and an invitation is extended to members to make us« of

The library is established as a
permanent institution in Cranbrook,
but the more members and the more
contributions there are to it, the
more successful it will be. It needs
money to buy new books, particularly books of reference and non-fiction.

were $339.72.

From left to right, /''. rV. Motion, Col. Frank S. Me
iiensy, E. IV. Beatty, Sir Herbert Holt,
SURROUNDING E. W. Beatty, chairman and president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, are a number of the directors of the system grouped on the
Observation Car of the train about to start for Toronto
from the Windsor Station, Montreal. Mr. Beatty
spoke at the Toronto Exhibition on tho occu3ion of
"Transportation Day" and then went on an extended
tour of inspection over the C.P.IL western lines. His
Itinerary was by way of Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Calgary to the Rocky Mountains and en
to the Coast and Vancouver Island where a trip wus
made over the Bsqulmalt and Nanalmo Railway to
Port Albernl and Great Central Lake, the terminal of
a new stretch of that railroad which has just been
built to open up Important lumbering areas.
Speaking of general conditions on his return
from the trip, Mr, Beatty Bald a very marked improvement was evident as compared with that which
had existed when he last went across the country.
The spirit of the people was much more optimistic
and ho thought with very good reason. Ths movement of grain had gone, forward extremely well. The
railways were never In better shape to handle the
crop nnd Canadian Pacific shipments from Winnipeg
to the head of the Lakes had created a record.
There was, Mr. Beatty added, noticeable throughout the country a sustained interest in ths important
matter of immigration and a more general realization
ighen, C.M.Q., Senator Beique, K.C., Lord Shauffh-
ItosB M. McMaater, FT. N. Tilley, K.C.
of the fact that therein lay the soundest remedy for
most of Canada's difficulties. The announcement
made at Edmonton by President Beatty of a fuller
measure of co-operation between the government and
the railways looking to an acceleration of the movement of settlers to Canada had apparently been well
received as an indication of real progress In this direction, and Mr. Beatty was hopeful that next year's
results would be much better than for some years
At the Rocky Mountains resorts and the coast Mr.
Bestty stated that the tourist business was assuming
tremendous proportions and the Rockies were fast
growing in popularity with American and European
travellers, while tourist traffic up and down the coast
had been heavy, the twe new tourist steamers. Princess Kathleen and Princess Margaret, added to the
Canadian Pacific fleet, having been exceedingly well
patronised. Improvements were In hand at ths Banff
Springs Hotel and Chateau Lake Louise for the coming winter.
Throughout the trip Mr. Beatty was accompanied
by Sir Herbert Holt, P. W. Molson, Ross 11.
McMaster, directors of the company; P. E. Meredith,
director of Canadian Pacific Steamships; and by John
w. Hobbs, director of the Imperial Bank. Over east-
ern lines vice-president A. D. MacTler accompanied
the party, while D. C. Coleman, vice-president of western lines, was present from Fort William west.

ARRIVAL in Western Canada of
the new Canadian National
Railways nil-electric car on an endurance run from Montreal to
Vancouver under its own power,
and its subsequent return to Edmonton where it was placed in
service on the Edmonton-Vermilion
run, replacing a mixed train service, has created much interest
among railway men and the travelling public generally.      The new
car, shown above, carries approximately 60 passengers, in addition
to baggage and express, and made
a record run to Vancouver. Other
cars of similar type, and also of an
articulated type, carrying 120 passengers, have been placed In service In Eastern Canada, where
they are giving excellept service

It. K. Will, of Portland, associated

R. W. Wood in the Premier Mine,
gave an interesting talk on the early
history of that property at the annual
banquet of the North West Mining
Association held in Spokane recently, He said: "Not all the good
mines are gone. In 25 years I have
passed over many good prospects
The price nnd situation were again*'
them at that time.
"There will be plenty of good prospects when we are dead. They always will be found. Three of the
greutest mines I developed were
turned down. In the Coeur d'Alener
I spent $8,000, and in the first thirty
days took out enough ore to pay off
all obligations.   That was the Hecla.
"The Kendall Mine In Montana,
was small, but it yielded a lot of
money. Look the prospects over
carefully. That is one of the secrets
of success in mining.
"A pretty good little mine was the
Premier. (The Company has disburs
ed eight million In dividends.) I'
was there for anyone to take. 1 went
in there to look at another property
when I heard of it. I proceeded care
fully in the first examination. After
that I spent five days looking over
the Premier. It was in a bad situation. It was fourteen miles from
transportation. I was told that the
snow was fifty-four feet deep in the
fall.   I commenced to get cold feet.
"The price for the Premier seemed
reasonable enough—$150,000. I'm a
kind of a Jew. I jewed them down
to $100,000 and got six years ia
which to pay it. I figured I could
find out with $5,000 if there wm a
mine there. I spent $4,000 and block-
ed out $3,000,000. I felt encouraged
to build that 14 miles of road. It
took three years to do it. The seasons are short. Then it was a horse
trait, wide enough to admit the passage of a twenty-inch sled and cost
¥7,000. But before building the trail
1 had $7,000 worth of ore sacked to
pay  for it.
"In the next winter I hauled $54,-
000 worth of ore and put that into a
road the next summer. I chartered a
steamship and brought in horses,
dogs und camp equipment. On the
next morning after unloading from
the scow I wus confronted with 17
feet of snow. A month was occupied
in going from Stewart to the mine.
Rain fell the next 17 days and then
snow fell. In the spring I shipped
1H4 dry tons of ore, worth $112,000,
to the Tacoma smelter.
"I opened the mine by watching
the dollars. I cooked, washed dishes,
sharpened steel and kept my own
books, when there was no one else to
do these things. Had I not done
these things I could have broken my
"A fault of mining is that some of
the nun in it do not know how to
spend money. Ninety per cent of
the money is wasted. Ten per cent
goes into the ground. Some men havs
tried to open a mine by living in
town and sending letters and telegrams.   These same men want other
men to work for small wages and to
io the highest grade of work. The
successful mine manager is the first
on the job in the morning, the last
at night.
The Premier Mine was lost to
earlier owners by men who managed
by writing letters. If they had done
what I did I would not have got the
"The prospector is strong in the
back and weak in the h«ad: Thu first
thing he thinks of is to run a tunnel.
He should not do this. He should
prospect at the surface and if he has
indications he should crosscut so
many hundred feet apart, so that the
man looking for u mine could see
what the surface contains.

THE eyes of the people are focussed on Ottawa
this week, where the shattered Liberal government has been trying to accomplish by political strategy what constitutional practice and the history of
parliaments Will not give precedent for. An amendment to the reply to the address from the throne
offered by Mr. Mcighen presents the first real test
of strength, being treated as a vote of non-confidence, the passing of which would mean nothing less
than the resignation of the government. So critical is the situation that the premier, 1101 able to
sonally defend his position from the floor of tin-
house, must occupy a seat in the distinguished gi
lery, while he conducts the fight to prolong the life
of the government by proxy. The pronouncements
contained in the speech from the throne indicate a
complete capitulation to the remnant of the Progressive parly, who decimated as their ranks are
from the last election, are masters of the situation,
in that they hold the fate of the government in their
hands. Apart from the fact that in attempting to
carry on Premier King is violating his own pledge
of a few months ago, to call another election if he
did not get a clear majority, from every angle of
their argument now being presented in support of
their position, protrudes the desire to cling to office as long as possible. Perhaps they will weather
this storm, bill it will be hard riding all through
the session, with the possibility of defeat on every
question of moment which is brought up. The situation as it is today is a travesty on the principle of
government by majority.

Hon. Arthur Meighen has had a great triumph in
the Dominion. H* had to face first a solidly opposing
Quebec, where personal hatred of Meighen on the conscription isaue was the deciding factor. A most unscrupulous campaign against the Conservative leader was conducted in that province. But with 65 seats arrayed
against him to start with, he came out of the contest
with a substantially larger party than the Liberals. In
the other provinces,' markedly in the West. Mr. Kiiif; and
his lieutenants jockeyed nominations with Progressives
and BO- called Independents in the endeavor to defeat
straight Conservative candidates. In some instances they
succeeded, as in Lethbridge, where one of the finest
candidates in the Dominion, General Stewart, was defeated by these manoeuvres. Quebec voted on an ancient grudge, not on the merits of the King administration. In the remainder of the Dominion, the verdict is
a round condemnation of a government that has been
weuk in leadership and inefficient in administration.

1 on the city council, the school board ami the po
lice commission filled by acclamation, as well as
the mayoralty. Probably the majority of people
prefer to think that the reason for the all-round
acclamation was a feeling a general satisfaction at
the condition of civic affairs, rather than a lack of
interest     in     them. The city council found
last year that one sure way to gain general approval is to use the language that expresses itself in
a reduced mill rate.
The underworld of this continent will probably
note the observations which Mr. Justice Murphy made
when he sentenced William Bagley to ten years in the
penitentiary and twelve lashes. It was not with any desire to be vindictive in the case of the prisoner before
him that the Nanaimo trial judge said "the people of
Canada are determined that Canada will not become a
happy hunting ground for criminals"; but hje uttered a
-ve 11 -established truth when he followed this up with tht
pointed suggestion that "when the people of Canada
make up their minds Utey are apt to go through with
what they propose."
British justice is invariably fair. An accused
person is allowed to go to the fullest extent of his capacity in his defence and the benefit of the doubt is
nearly always his. At the same time, to quote Mr. Justice Murphy again, "our criminal procedure in Canada
1b simple and swift and endeavors to be certain." There
is no thought of vengeance; the appropriate sentence
when the court is certain is "to demonstrate that here,
in Canada, law is respected." In the case of ull those
involved in the Royal Bank robbery so far apprehendeu
and dealt with the sentences undoubtedly have the approval of the general public. The punishment thus
meted out ought to serve as a deterrent to anybody who
tries to turn a similar trick—Victoria Times.

Ministers of the United Church of Canada who
met in Vancouver the other afternoon for the purpose
of forming a Ministerial Association are to be commended for refusing to hear a delegation from representatives
of the Terminal City's branch of the Ku Klux Klan. It
There is a natural tendency I made no difference to them that  over  one   thousand
to overlook a few minor considerations in the face
oi a big reduction in the tax rate, such as was put
into force last year. Mayor Roberts is to be congratulated on the approval his policy on the council seems to have brought, the feeling undoubtedly
being that with his years of municipal experience
behind it, any financial policy that lie advocates is
at least likely to be sound and practical. Probably the coming year will call for the exercise of an
even more decided line of action in some respects,
particularly as to the roads, streets and sidewalks,
regardless of whether the by-laws pass or not. If
they are passed, there will be a natural demand that
ministers of the gospel in the United States were reported as belonging to this organization. The suggestion
that the kleagllng klansmen of the neighboring republic
are merely operating in "an effort to secure the enforcement of the law" and would like to do the same in this
country was by no means a reflection of the intelligence
of the delegation's spokesman. This is Canada. It is
not the United States. The law is being enforced in this
country without the aid of gentlemen who dress up in
nightshirts and dance a highland fling round a fiery cross
on the hillside. When the state requires assistance it
will ask for it. Gratuitous interference before thut
time Js likely to cause trouble for state and busybodys
alike. There are many things for which we admire our

September statement of gross earnings, working expenses and net
profits. It has been the most favorable month for the company in
a long time. The gross earnings
were $18,909,071, tho greatest shown

two, the net profits $6,267,019, an
Increase of $1,719,973 over the corresponding month of last year. Net
earnings for the first three quarters of this year, ending September 30th. is $1,190,039 greater than

Forty years ago Canada had a population of 6,000,-

One of the points about every game
or Bport that every player recosniiei is
the necessity of constant play and
practice to keep in tip-top form. Auction bridge is no exception to this rule,
und a player who wants to keep his
form or improve, can do so only by
constant play and practice. One of the
best means of practice is to work out
the problems of play and bidding thut
nre given in these articles. They itimu-
I.ite the mind and give the player the
benefit of other points of view that he
might otherwise nave missed. Here are
several hands, for example, where proper
bidding and play would have been well
rewarded. See what you would have
done and then compare results with
the writer's analysis.
Have you evar noticed how often
certain cards or groups of cards will be
duplicated in one or more hands? An
observing player can gain many ■ trick
by looking out for these duplications or
repetitions. The writer saw * good example tot other night.

one no-trump. If A bid two diamonds
and Y passed, what would you bid with
B's hand? B should bid two no-trump.
If A's bid of two diamonds is sound,
A B should have a good chance for game
at no-trump. A bid over a no-trump
when you have the lead should indicate
a very strong hand, so B should try for
game by bidding two no-trump.

dealt and bid one heart. A and V passed
and I) bid one spade. Z bid two heartti
and all passed. A opened the eight ol
spades and Z won the trick with the
lung. In order to make game and rubber
Z must win nine tricks. What was hia
best plan of play to accomplish this result? Z noted that he held a hand
divided among the four suits in the
ratio of 6-3-3-1. In his own hand he
held six hearts and in the dummy
three. If there was a duplication or
repetition of the division of the cards
in his own hand and those of the heart
suit, it would be divided in the same
ratio 6*3-3-1. This is, one of Z's opponents »ould hold a singleton heart.
If that conclusion were correct, was
there any guide as to what the singleton heart would be? Z noted that he
held the singleton king of diamonds so
that if one other player held a singleton
heart, it should be the king. Having
analyzed the hand in that manner, Z
led the four of hearts at trick two and
when A played the deuce, Z played the
ace from dummy and B's singleton
king dropped. Every one at the table
said: "How did you guess that ?" So Z
explained the frequency of repetitions
or duplications not only of the distributions of the suits but also of the exact
card or cards. It's really very Interest'
ing so be on the lookout for hands uf
this tyjie and if you run across niiy
jiowl examples, send them in. Z's application of t he rule In this hand gave him

one no-trump and A passed. What
would you bid with Y'shand? This is a
very close hand. Most players would
pass but the singleton club is a danger
spot for a no-trump. The writer would
bid two hr-arts, particularly because of
the distribution 4-4-4-1 which, as a
rule, indicates a long suit in one or
more of the other hands. If this suit is
clubs, it will undoubtedly be opened
and will probably prevent a game at
no-trump. There is just as good a
chance for game at hearts us in no*
trump but without the risk, so the
writer prefers the two heart bid with
this type of hand.
Hand No. 5
The marked progress shown during 1925 in the mining industry
throughout the province is summarized in the report just issued by
Honorable William Sloan, minister
of mines and provincial secretary,
of the operations In the various
mining district of British Columbia.
The year has proved one of greatly increased nctivity in all the mining
district of the province, Mr. Sloan
tnU-d. CumniencltiR with District
No. 1, the year has been the most
progressive one in its history. The
Premier Mine is doubling the capacity of its concentrator.
Thirty to forty properties in the
Portland Canal Division (part of
District No. 1) have been more or
less developed this' yeur. It can
only be expected that a relatively
small percentage of this number will
develop into profitable mines. But
on the whole much progress has been
made this year.
In No. 3 district the important developments of the year have been the
reopening of the Iron Mask mine at
Kumloops, where a development
campaign is under way, including
the sinking of a new shaft; the operations of the Merritt Mines, Limit-
id. which is developing the Vimy
Ridge group, and the old Aberdeen
property, which are situated near
Merritt; the opening up of the gypsum deposit at Falkland, on the new
Kelowna-Kamloops branch of the
Canadian National Railway, by the
B.C. Gypsum Company; the success
being attained by development on the
Lome and other properties in the
Bridge River section; the reopening
of the Emancipation mine, near
Hope; the bonding of the Wind pass
property at Chu Chua by eastern
interests, und the commencement of
vigorous development by them; the
optioning of the Lewis property on
Tranquille Creek by the Federal
Mining & Smelting Co., and a number of placer mining enterprises at
different points throughout the district.
In No. 4 district the reopening of
the Copper Mountain mine and mill,
in August, was of considerable Importance. This is, of coursw, not
new development, but is the result
of development in past years now
expressed in production. The old
Beaverdell camp, which has been reviving steadily for the last year,
has been the centre of great activity. The revival of the camp started
with the successful operation of the
Bell Mine by Duncan Mcintosh.
This was followed by the Sally,
which was developed by a local Pen-
ticton syndicate. This property has
now been acquired by the Federal
Mining and Smelting Company at a
reported price of $500,000. Many
claims in the camp have now been
bonded, bought or optioned and active development iH proceeding on
many of them. The ores in this
amp are high in silver, and carload
ihtpmenta assay from 250 to 500
ounces to the ton. The Horn Silver
Mine, near Similkameen, is being
operated by Vancouver interests, and
a small concentrator is being erected.
A lot of work has been done this
year in drilling, testing and working
platinum placer deposits on the Similkameen and Tulnmeen rivers. Full
details of the year's work are not
yet available, but the results on the
whole have not been particularly encouraging.
No. 5 District comprises Kast and
West Kootenay, and is the most important mining district in the province. It includes the famous Sullivan mine at Kimberley, the Slocan
district, and the large metallurgical
plant of the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company of Canada at
Tfrail. A vigourous policy of wc*
pansion haa been in progress by this
company during recent years. The
basis of this expansion is to be found
in the enormous deposit of low-grade
silver-lead-zinc   ore  at   the  Sullivnn
mine. For years tho effclent treatment of the complex ore was an unsolved problem, and much research
work in concentration of the ore
and its metallurgical treatment was
necessary be Tore a solution was
found. This year the zinc plant at
Trail was doubled, giving it a capacity of 200 tons a day and the lead
camp whs increased to .150 tons a
day. The company ships out a
trainload  of refined  metal  daily.
The copper refinery at Trail is
now in operation and with an assured supply of copper concentrates
from Allonby, a steady output of
COppeil bars mid rods will be made
in tiie future. This company also
extracts from Its ores antimony as
a by-product, li manufactures for
its own requirements sulphuric acid
and hydro fluosilicic ncld from B.C,
raw materials. Besides mining.
Bmolting and refining its own or/08
from various properties, tho Trail
plant is a custom plain, treating ores
from nearly nil the tunics in the
southern interior of B.C.
Among the many new developments
which give rise to expectations that
within tin- next year or so many new
names will be added In the shipping
list, it may be mentioned that
the Stemwlnder and North Star
mines are being vigorously developed and prospected by the Porcupine
Goldl'ield Development and Finance
Company Limited.

in the film are scenes showing 50,-

The picture is also an intimate

While a large part of the increase
over 11121 business is due to the increased yield of grain in the prairie
provinces, there have also been increases in other commodities handled
by the Canadian National, as well as
great increases in the passenger
traffic over the western lines.
The figures concerning the grain
movement may be taken as an instance of the greatly improved traf-
tic during tho past year as compared
with 11124. From August 1, 1925,
to December 28, a total of 112,944
cars of grain were loaded at Canadian National points. These cars
contained a total of 152,804,000
'jushels of all grain!?. That this is
nearly double the loadings of the
same period of the previous year is
shown by the statement which gives
00,008 cars and 80,041,000 bushels
loaded in the corresponding 1924
period. The amount of grain in
Htorage at country points at December 28 was 21,474,000 bushels,
against 11,807,000 bushels at the
same date of 1924. At that date
loadings were still continuing at the
rate of more than 1,000 curs daily,
io lhat the total grain loadings to
the end of the yeur wore nearly
120,000 .ears.
Passenger traffic officials stated
that the 1925 traffic over Canadian
National lines had been heavier than
in any previous year in the history
of the road.
The    increasing   interest   among
Canadians and outsiders alike in the
ithern Canadian Rockies is chief-
responsible   for .this   increased
movement and the fact that addition-1
al services have been provided, in-1

Branch line? on which construction was commenced or completed
during the past year have given added service to western Canada, as
well as providing additional feeders
.'or the main lines of the system. In
:ill. some 385 miles of new track
have been laid on branch lines in the
west and approximately 30/mileB of
new trackage was laid for extensions
to existing yard tracks, sidings and
purs lo provide for increased traffic. Grading of approximately 375
miles was completed.
Telegraph lines were constructed
on 215 miles of line, while over 560
miles uf fences were built. Eighty-
five pound rails were laid on 135
miles of track to release lighter rail
for branch line purposes and provide
heavier steel on main lines for increased traffic.
A feature of the increased service
during the year was the bringing
rom Montreal of one of the new
oil-electric passenger cars, which
ivaa subsequently placed in service
Dp the Edmonton-Vermilion line of
the company in Alberta. This cor
made the journey from Montreal to
Vancouver under its own power in
!7 hours, later returning to Edmonton for Ecrvice. Another car of
•iniilar type for the Kamloops-Kel-
iwna branch line service is expected
from eastern Canada shortly.
For the heavy grain movement,
additional locomotives were moved
nto the west from eastern lines,
here being an average of more than
•15,000 grain cars in service daily
during the grain rush with sufficient
power available at all points to keep
the grain moving from country electors to the lnkehead or Pacific

Rumor had it early this week that
the road to Corbin would be built
this year. Upon investigation we
found that nothing definite has come
through from Victoria yet, but there
are unconfirmed reports that work
will be started in the spring. It is
estimated that the road construction
and bridges required to complete the
job will cost almost $105,000. It is
rather too much to hope for, but this
road has been badly needed for the
past twenty years, and everybody
hopes that the government will get
busy this year.—Fernie Free Press.

Capt. R. Mason, officer in charge

disposed of no fewer than 1,350 copies, as against 300 sold here the
previous year. For making this
phenomenal increase of 383 per cent
in sales, he received a spcial prize of
$20, for achieving the largest percentage of increase in the territory.
Incidentally, this number of sales
was only exceeded by one other corps

There has been no election in Fernie since 11(23, and from what wc
have been able to learn, the opinion
is that the administration of the city
has not suffered thereby. It is conceded that the ideal council for a
city like Fernie Is one on which different classes of citizens are represented. On the board of aldermen
in 1025, the Miners' Union had two
representatives, the G.W.V.A. had
one representative, the stores on-
representative, with two representatives of the general or business public. As a result, all questions were
decided in the light of full and first-
[hand knowledge as to how the public generally would be affected. Any
appreciation of the work accomplished by the last council may. we believe, be largely attributed to this
feature. We understand thut J. S.
Irvine is again standing for Mayor,
and that the following Aldermen
have also consented to be candidates
for 1926: D. F. Markland, Andrew
Lees, E. K, Stewart, Matthew Tully,
Robt. Kerr. — Fernie Free Press.
(Since last week's Free Press was issued things at Fernie developed so
that ther were to be elections for all
the offices, mayor and aldermen).
