An Impromptu toast list waa pro-1
posed and responded to. headed by a
toast to the "King."
In responding for the mining Interests, Mr. Walllnger, government a- j
gent, said that mining had not taken ]
tlie  place In this district  It should !
do, but Indications ure tiiat there I?
to he more doing In tiie mining line,
The Indications are not of the boom I
kind, but a kind of development that
will help us very much.   This district I
from the mining point of view is see-
ond to none In tlie province.
Mr. Montgomery, superintendent or;
the Sm.ivan mine at Kimberley, stated
that the Consolidated was doing all It
could to keep tilings moving.   They
were banking a lot on tlie returned
men.    He  gave a  hearty  invitation
to the members or tiie Board to take
a run  up to Kimberley and inspect
the mine.   The company would    do
their best to give them all the information they desired.   As tlie mining |
industry at  Kimberley grows Cran-1

Mr. Palraquist, engineer in charge
of tlie development of    tbe    Perry

K. H. McPhee spoke on the farming
interests, Mr. Woods is a practical

district is able to do hy rnislng fine

really can do. Mr, McPhee whs convinced that this district would become ,
self-supporting by developing both
branches of the fanning industry. He
urged the co-operation of all tho or-,
gttntxatlons thai relate to the dov-sl-
optnenl of tlte natural resources of
im district.

lumbering and farming business, that
business Is good and Improving.
W, II Wilson, on hehnlf rf the Good
Roads movement emphasised the fact
Ihat good roads wore among the
grealei.t assets nny community could
hnvo. Thoy brought In Ihe tourist
and the hind seeker; they helped to
develop mining, lumbering and farm
Ing. This dlStrlOt Is getting :i lol Ol
publicity and many eunulrtes are being received lu regard to the roads.j
fishing and big gafflfl attractions from j
an far oust as Boston and as far j
west us the Pacific, const, from Alaska to Mexico, There is good foundation for the belief that there will be
thro*1 ilmes the amount Of tourist
traffic through this district the coming season Bum there was last your
and (here was a good deal of It during
litis. We have now quttO a large mtl-
oago oi good roads lu the district and l
the government, it is understood, will
sJpcnd a good deal of money on the
roads of the district this yenr, nnd '
when the Banff-Windermere road is
completed there will be n nuieli larger
strenm of traffic. There is every encouragement for our people to hoo.-t
and cut out the knocking.
President Spreull remarked Hint the
knockers nro all gone—they took their
departure with the year that is passed ami there Ir now a more optimistic fooling prevailing. Wo should
nil become Interested in the location
of new local Industries. If Nelson
can make room for the manufacture
of washboards, Cranhrook can surely
make tho clothespins.
W. T. Attrldge spoke to the toast nf
local Industries with special regard
to the lumber Industry. The membors of the lumber association were
taking a very optimistic view, There
is every indication that the prairies
mn going" to liavo a good crop this
i and U they do, if lumber in
dustry will thrive. Tlie prairie farmer 1ms been doing very little building recently. They have been getting
along with very little lumber for a
year or more, hut this full will see
a change, at least that is the expectation.
.1.  !•', (iuimont   was called  upon  to
speak on behalf ol Hie c.i'.u. lie admitted lie was not giving away any
of tlie secrets of the executive when
ho said that the C.I'.K. was in hourly
co-operutlon with every town oil the
line, and that an increased service
has boon talked of, lie deprecated tlie
custom that had grown upon the
people of i 'ranbrook of sopa rating
themselves Into two camps, tlie railway men and the civilian. We are all
enthusiastic over the welfare of the
Hon. Dr. King. Minister of Public
Works in the B.C. government, and
member for this district, was present
and was called upon to address the
gathering. Ho expressed his pleasure
und congratulated crunbrook upon
having a live Board of Trade again.
As this is a period of ro-constructiou
he thought that he might fairly make
some remarks showing what the B.C.
government has done in the way of
re-construction. He referred to the
Land Settlement Board which is engaged In sizing up the agricultural
possibilities of every part of tlie province. They aro developing nn extensive scheme in tlie north and investigating conditions in our own community. He referred to the mining engineers. The province had been divided Into mining districts with a mining engineer resident In each district.
These men advised the prospector and
assisted him in developing his property. Mining men could also go to
him for advice. He spoke of tlie steel
industry which must sooner or later
be established in the province to treat
tbe great iiuuntiNes of Iron ores
within the province. Very little was
known at the coast about the iron ores
of this district of which there was an
abundance i-nri an engineer will be
sent here to Investigate and report.
He remarked] by way of parenthesis.
that he was surprised he had not received more requests from Cranbrook
district in regard to Its requirements.
Tho n.-vernii-ent had pawl an act to
assist in developing the stock industry. He referred to tho visit of Mr.
McKenzie. the grazing commissioner,
a mnn of broad experience, and who
woudl be coming here again soon to
organize the district, lt was believed that with proper usage the present
Ranges would be made to take care of
four times the numher of head of
Stock, Thc government wore providing for the extension of the lumber
trade of tiio province by opening up
foreign markets, the prairie would
then cease to be made the dumping
ground for the surplus atbek of the
coast mills. The lumber industry in
this dlstrlcl would thon become more
or lean stabilised. \ department of
Industries had beon organized which
would help any feasible project put
on foot hero for acquiring local In-
dustries, the government assisting by
either a loan of money Or a guarantee of bonds. A labor department
had beon organised and a looor bureau will be opened In Cranbrook in
D few days. All our soldiers will soon
be  hack  and owing   to  the   favorable
climate of this province probably
25,000 men from other parts of Canada will make their homes In this
province. Tho labor market will probably become congested and this policy of establishing labor bureaus
throughout the province will relieve
the situation. He made a vciy important reference to Hie roads of the
district. The minInter admitted that
not much money had heen spent during Hie pnM two years but now larger
sunn; of money Should be spent on the
roads, lie toon tho position that the
making of the roads should be u provincial and not a dlstrlcl affair. It is
necessary for the province to take
cure of a larger program, Il is expected Hint the Dominion will assist,
|BO,000,000 Is to lie appropriated by
the Dominion govornmont to help construct a i rant-Canadian Highway. A
portion of that will be spout In tho
province of British Columbia. As (12
percent of the population of the province lies south of the railway belt.
tho highway will in all probability bo
constructed through the southern portion of tho province. Jimtlce to the
people who liavo long settled this
province demands that this bo the
route chosen. There Is now a good1
road from Vancouver to Hoik., from
there over the mountains there Is a
Htretch of 70 miles not completed. The
pass Is 5.000 foet high ond tho route
would be open about four or five
months of the year. There is an alternative route from Hope up the
Fraser vulloy. where the elevation Is
only 1200 foet. Whichever of these
routes is r.hosen the connection would
be made Just the Hnme with the southern route. Surveys nro now bolng
made and a decision will he made
shortly. The Great Northern tight of

| regrets at not being able to attend the
j luncheon of the Board of Trade on
Tuesday He wished the Board every
success and suggested ihat they work
in unison with West Kootneay for
which Mr. Fred Starkey and the public spirited men of Nelson have done
so much in attracting those who arc
able to develop the resources of tiie
country, and Nelson and Spokane
ure reaping tho benefits, It fs well
known, ho says, that Cranhrook is
surrounded by rich mineral deposits.
Two of the biggest mines on this continent are convincing evidence of this
fact, besides there are mny thousands
of similar surface Indications.
The Easter Ball held in tlie Auditorium on Monday night for the benefit of St. Eugene hospital was a most
j enjoyable  affair.    There    were    .180
' people In  attendance.    Tlie  program
! consisted of 40 dunces and some ex-
' tras.    There  was a  large attendance
from outside  points.    Wi' can't  say
who enjoyed themselves tho most   -
, the ludies or the gem lemon   but there
'. did not appear lo be anybody who wus
I not   radiant   with   Joy.    There   were
: some excellent  gowns worn by    the
ladies    fuzzy   stuff,   firry   itufl     and
J stuffs or all colors, with green pro*
dominating.   It was estimated that ul
\ least   126,000   worth   of  new  dresses
were on the floor, to suy nothing a
1 bout the rings, necklaces and    other
, jewelry.    Quite  a  number of gentlemen were dressed in cutaways, while
vests and gloves, as huppy ns they
i could be in the curtullod   freedom
i which tlu-y enjoyed.   We will not try
I to describe  the  Individual   gowns  as]
I we have not  room enough to do jus- j
tioe to them all and we must not be'
1 unfair.

sisted or five performers and it seemed u hundred instruments; we suy
performers, for thoy were more than
musicians. They were u noisy bunch,
they made more noise than a nut tree
full of monkeys throwing coconnuts at
each other in a tropical thunderstorm.
But it wus all in tlie game, tltere wns
nothing superfluous and the crowd of I
merrymakers on tlie floor were lifted
out of themselves and forgot for a few
hours that they had any relation what,
ever to terra firms. The Jazz Bund

Co-operative effort was cry:; tali zed
at Blalrmore in the organization or
the Crows Nest Pass National Highway Association, witli delegates present from as Ear distant towns as
Medicine Hat and Cranbrook. There
are three clilef aims at present: To
improve for the common good the
highway for tourlsl and inter-community travel, the urging of the C. P.
K. to reinstate anothor local train on
tho Crow line, and a Joint appeal to
the It. c. government to   make thc
rules of the road in it. C. the same as
now existing In other parts of Cunada
and the U. H.
The Herald representative found
that in practically all tho towns visited there waa a united public opinion behind tlioso Uiroo reslutlons.even
In tho towns which were not represented al tho Blafrmoro convention.
Already tourists are coming from
tho United StatOfl and Vancouver via
motor. Inquiries for information are
pouring in to the auto clubs and
boards of trade, and the travel on the
highway this year Is oxpeotod l<> bo
much more than lasl year.
Travel In the trains Is uncomfortably crowded and frequontlj passengers stand iu lho aisles. With tho
one train a day. inter-town local travel is discouraged. The trains rrom!
Spokane are especially crowded will

how a B. C. [into owner when on a

to tlu- confusing opposite rules of the

About fifty delegates from all parts
of tho Kootenay and Boundary Districts met In Nelson last Saturday to
organize a Teachers' Association.
Representatives were present from
Michel, Pernie. Cranbrook. Nelson,
Silverton. Kaslo, Trail, New Denver,
Rossland, Revelstoke and several
other points. Crunbrook was represented by ll. S. Shields und R. For-
On the opening of the morning session Mr. Robson, ol' Rossland, was
appointed chairman and W. ,1. Kades,
of Revelstoke, secretary. In opening
the meeting, B. P. Sleeves, principal
or Nelson hfgh school, briefly reviewed tlie preliminary steps that had
been taken to bring the teachers together. The constitution, which had
been drafted by Messrs. McArthur,
Sparks and Sleeves previous to the
meeting, was discussed and this business occupied the entire morning ses
Blon and was taken up again In the
afternoon and adopted.
The following officers were elected
lor the ensuing year: President, B.
P. Sleeves, Nelson; first vice-president. E. G. Daniels, Penile; second
vice-president, Miss Thorn, Trail;
corresponding secretary, Mr. Sparks,
Palrvlow; recording secretary. H. McArthur, Nelson; treasurer. Miss L.
Whplen, Nelson*, executive committee—Mr. Robson, Rossland; H. S.
Shields, Cranbrook; Miss L. Smith,
Michel: \V. J. Hades, Revelstokeiand
Q, Stephens, Grand Forks.
The question of fees was discussed
and the fee was finally fixed at $5 a
year. Tliis fee was necessary, the
prosident pointed out, for affiliation
wllh tlie provincial federation. The
secretary was instructed to open negotiations with the officers of the provincial federation with a view to securing an early affiliation.
The desirability of establishing a
bureau for those desiring positions
was discussed and a resolution passed empowering tlie executive to do
so if thought feasible.
The subject of fixing a minimum
wage for teachers was left In the
bands of the executive ror further action.
The question of Inter-school sports
was keenly discussed at the evening
session nml a general desire to promote Ihe various forms of sport was
evinced by the meeting. A motion
was passed to tlie effect that members
of tlie executive be instructed lo fos
ter inter-school sports in whatever
way they should deem advisable.
When the question came up as to
the place to hold thc convention of
1920, R. S. Shields, principal of Cranbrook public schools, moved that the
1920 convention of the Kootenay and
Boundary District Teachers' Association he held In Cranbrook and In doing so he read letlers of greeting and
Invitation from the Cranbrook school
board, the city council and board ol

of thanks and the motion was carried
.vith enthusiasm.

The special correspondent of the
Loth bridge Herald has been writing
up tho Creston distriei and its rapid
development, espectaly iu fruit raising, well deserves the publicity It Is
getting.    Tlie Herald says:
The chief point of interest in tlie
development of Creston fruit orchards is their value to the prairie farmer, who here, just over tlie Rocky
Mountain fence, in the garden of the
Kootenuys finds there is available
within less than half a day's railway
journey such delicious fruit which
can tie plucked in the orchnrd at noon
to arrive in Lethbrldge long before
daylight. This means that the fruit
can be picked fresh and ripe. With
tho prospect of early eonstrucilou of
the National Highway through the
Crows Nest Pass it will only mean a
few hours motor ride for the prairie
farmer of Southern Alberta from his
wheat rami in Alberta to his fruit
ranch In tho Kootenay valley at Creston, B. C.
Of the 100,933 fruit trees In the 1200
acres of orchards In the Creston Val-1
ley just 268 miles wesl of Lethbrldge
00,307 trees are apple trees and of
Ihe apple tfes the last census shows
thai 29 per cent are Wagner, 13 per
cent ure Wealthy, 10 per cent Mackintosh Red. K per cent Jonathan, fi
per cent Northern Spy, 5 per ceni ,
Delicious. 4 per cent Spitzburgen,
while other heavy varieties found In
the Creston Valley are Rome. Beauty, Ontario, King, Cos's Orange,
Grimes' Golden and Graveusieiti. The'
same census of trees also shows 4764,
pear, 1106 sweet cherry. 2010 plums'
and prunes and 866 peaches, Tiie
average orchnrd runs ahout 80 trees
lo the ncre.
The applfl  crop I ii Ml   y«iir  of  Ihese
young orchards totalled 65,000 boxes,
but ut the fulr estimate of six boxes
per tree the hundred thousand apple
trees now planted should yield for the
market of the apple hungry prairie
folks a total of 600,000 boxes.
The total value of the orchards of
the Creston Valley district for 1918
is calculated al $425,000 as compared
with $335,000 in the year previous.
Tiie total fruit and vegetable crop
last year was a little under half a,
million dollars, while the output in
1917 was $95,000. The gain was due
both to better prices and a vast Increase in output.
Last year tlie export of strawberries from this district totalled 1)260
crates, averaging ?8.26 I,er crftto f*
o. b. Creston, and at lonst 7,000 crates
or this amount were grown in tho
Wynndel) district. In 1917 there wns
an abnormal crop of strawberrios of
17,000 cratos. In normal years the
present plantations should yield
12,1100 crates of strawberries nnd 7000
crates of raspberries, tlie latter averaging $3.31 f. o. b. Creston. One
acre nf strawln-rrles at Wynndel
earned $2,300 for Joo Wlgon and all
lhe expense ho had was for erntes,
pickers and selling commission.
Last year's crop or other fruits as
reported by the creston board of
trade was as follows: (All prices f.
o. b. Creston.)
Tomatoes—1000 crates ripe at average price of 74 cents.    2000 crates
greu  at average  price  of 60    cents,
Kricksou district is the most famous
lor tomatoos.
Cucumbers—-2000 crates at 65c.
Sweet  cherries—1000  crates averaging $2.31.
Sour cherries— 250 crates at $1.54.
Currants—182S    crates;   black    at
$3.22. and red at $2.17.
Plums—3460 crates at  $1.14.
Pears—1928 boxes at $2.03.
Crab apples—17S4 boxes at    from
$1.00 to $1.75, according to variety.
Green peppers—10,222 lbs. at 17c.
per pound.
The bee keeper and the fruit grower are natural allies because In the
nature of the development of a fruit
Ihe busy bee Is a very efficient and
necessary partner in the business of
increasing the yield of fruit. Wliere
bes ure not found some gardeners
have heen known to succeed by using
an artificial means to fertilize the
flowers. The 1200 acres of orchard
bloom while a picturesque panorama
for tlie tourist or the honeymoon parties In June should be a veritable
heavenly harvest for the honey making bes. The side* line of the cpiorlst
last year yielded 3500 pounds of honey, sold at the apiary at 35 cents per
The poultry flocks of the district
I returned a crop of 6030 dozen eggs
! and the beef cattle of the district now
number 196 head. The 40.000 acres
of range lu the valley of the Koot-
enny r'ver prove of great value to the
live stock.
The dairymen shipped about 4740
gallons of milk and 1022 gallons of
cream mostly sold to the Soldiers'
sanitarium. Other products of the
district included 1000 gallons elder,
418 cars of lumber, posts and poles.
Two box factories operate in the district and made 147.000 crates for tlie
local market, witli a few shipped to
other fruit growing districts.

Such Women Just
Have to "Give Up"
"Man may work from sun to sun, but woman's
work is never done." That's why women are
overworked, nervous, all run down, no appetite,
and can "hardly drag around." Vinol creates a
hearty appetite, strengthens the digestive organs,
induces sound sleep, invigorates the nerves, and in
this natural manner creates working strength.
Nnmgansett Pi«r, R.I.
"I was all run-down, back ached,
and Ured all the time. I keep house
for my husband and four children and
could hardly keep around. Finally _
tried Vinol and it has restored my
health and helped me wonderfully, so
I recommend it to others who are in
this condition.'' Mrs-Hannah Randall.
Jacksonville, Ul.
" I keep house for my little family,
but got into a weak, nervous, run*
down condition, tired all the time and
no ambition. My doctor told me to
try Vinol, and in a week I felt like a
new person. I am now strong again,
look after my baby, and do alt my
housework."—Mrs. G. H. Lamson.
How to Judge Values
WHEN you select a type of shoe which pleases you, you
will probably find that it is made in different: grades
and different leathers—selling at different prices. But if the
shoe is stamped with a maker's name which you know, you
may be sure of good value for your money no matter what
grade you decide upon.
Go to a dealer in whom you have confidence, and look fur tho manufacturer's trade mark on the shoes you buy. The dealer's advice and judgment
will be of great assistance to you, and he will see that the shoes you select:
are properly fitted, so that you will get full service value from them. The
manufacturer's trade mark is your best assurance of high quality in material
and workmanship, for the manufacturer's business reputation is behind it.

The totlowing is what a former resident ut' Cranbrook haa to say of the

This Im lhe opinion of tlie Rev. W. K.

Oranbrook, who Imp recently returned
1110V.  W.   K   DUNHAM
from a three months trio to Siberia
as a Y.M.r.A. secretary. Mr. Dunham
took particular rare to si inly the situation in Siberia and while he was not
able to visit the Interior, he was at
Vladivostok in close touch witli tlie
sentiment antl opinion of all clauses
of people from all parts of tho vast
Siberian domain.
"It i.; my i'inn conviction," says
Mr. Dunham, "based on the best Information 1 could gather, tiiat it would
bo a calamity not only for Siberia,
but for all parts ot the world which
have any interest in or connection
with tiiat country to withdraw tlie allied forces from Siberia, While the
country is apparently quiet it ia only
the superior force of tlie allied occupation which i.s holding the terrorist
element In check. And while I believe
tlie great majority of the people are
not in sympathy with tiie terrorists,
they would be helpless before them
and Siberia would he plunged into the
bloody, hopeless, ruthless chaos of
Russia. Tiie allies must stay in Siberia
for a while yet if nothorn and eastern
Asia nre tu be saved from extreme
"What ls the nature of the t-ovlet
government?" Mr. DUnham was asked.
"Tho Soviet is generally misunderstood," Mr. Dunham stated. "In effect
' It is 'paternalism. Tlie state owns
everything. The laborer «ets a fair
wage. All surplus goes,, to the state
and bark to the people. Capital is
abolished. There are no profit:
There is no Competition. The church
cannot have schools or own property
The military establishment continues,
but It is not embraced in lhe soviet
policy. The school fystem is vague
The judical system seems workable
nnd worthy.
"And it would abolish national lines,
for the soviet contemplates a soviet
world and proposes to repudiate all
treaties and debts of the old government, whirii l think is Unmoral, Inheritance Is abolished Since there can

He corrected tin prevailing impression that tha* Siberian soviel wants

This it does nol encourage, he said;

government asking that a special
grant be made so that the road from
the western end of the above road to
rrunbrook may be put in first class
i may also state the roud from
Cranbrook to Kingsgale, to conned
with tbe National Highway in the
Slates, will also be put Into condition
to accommodate tlie very heavy traffic from points south. The road thru
tlie Fernle district to Crows Nest will
receive everyjitteutlon.
Last year over -three hundred cars
passed through here and from the reports which we are receiving daily
from the Northwest Tourist Associa-
lion of Seattle, we expect a very much
increased number will come tliis way.
in fuel we expect that 75 per cent of
the curs that will visit points iu R C,
ami Alberta will come from the south
and west of hero.
Let me also state that the towns

lo Calgary and Ihat it will he necessary to have a good road from Loth-
luliUe to your city, .lust here I mny

Mayor Marshall Intimated thai the
main highway should be pushed with
;-.ll possiblo speed through Calgary,
Banff and on to the coast. Mr. Davidson stated Hint Lethbrldge, Medicine
Hat, Fernle and Cranbrook were making strenuous efforts to have the road
built through the Crows Ne»t Pass,
and leave Calgary out altogether. I
am sorry that Mr. Davidson takes such
a stand as these towns have ro such
idea. What we do claim and can
prove by government reports, is that
ihis is the most feasible route through
B. 0. because of the lowest altitude,
the lowest cost of construction and being open over three times ns long as
any other route and it naturally follows that tlie main road should be
built tliis way. The Banff—Windermere roud is very nocessary as an attraction as it will pass through many
of the wonderful places of the west
and every tourist will want to travel
over it, but unfortunately It ls not
open long enough to Justify making it
the main road.
Another consideration Is the Crows
Xest route Is through a thickly populated country which pays large taxes
to the governments while the route
through Central or Northern B. C. is
unsettled and not likely to be settled
for some time, at least not sufficiently to warrant large expenditures on I
Calgary wholesalers and manufacturers enjoy large business connections through the whole of tlie Pass,
wli ifh plainly nnd unquestionably
proves that the Crow towns are fav-j
orably disposed toward Calgary, andj
there is no apparent reason why Cal- ■
gory ard all the towns south and west
cannot work together ln harmony.
Our aims and interests are alike, and ,
much good can be accomplished by
united effort. What benefit-; one
benefits all.
ln conclusion, let me say that we
believe the expressions at the meeting above referred to, were prompted
by a misunderstanding of the geographical and topographical conditions rather than from any malice on
Ul will. We want your good will and!
assistance: you want our good will
and business, so let's get together.*

and cattle raising country. In lillF.,
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company completed their Kootenay Central branch, connecting the District
with the C. P. H. main line In thoj
North, and Hie Crow's Nest Pass Hallway to the South) thus removing many j
of tho difficulties of settlement andj
simplifying the problem of markets

the now conditions, is but twelve

camps to tlie South, all of which at
present import most of their supplies
from the prairie.
The possibilities of the District

Tin1 District is comparatively well
settled. There is an extensive range
for rattle nnti horses, most of which
is available for settlement,
The Valley Is well watered by the
follow MR rivers: Hprso Tlilef, Toby.
Dutch antl FIndlay Creeks. Ample
water has been obtained from these
and other creeks for two large, and
numerous other smaller Irrigation
systems, on which much land Is still
available for .icttloment.
The valley Ih oso fortunate in possessing two large lakes. Windermere
and Columbia, which afrortl a means
of tronnportatlon. The railway lior-
ders these lakeB for a distance of
thirty mtlei. There are five stations
In this distance.
There are four smull towns, namely: Wilmer, Athalmer, Invermere and
Windermere, with churches, schools,
hotels, stores and other conveniences.
There Is a good telephone system between Golden and Windermere, and
most of the farms are on t. > line.
On account of its natural beauty
the District is alrea.ty favorably
known to tourists, whlQh will be further mnterlally developed In the near
future by the completion of thc Dauff-
Wtndormere Motor Roud. A trunk
road runs right through the Windermere District between Golden and
Cranbrook; from this there nre many
lateral roads already built extending

Annual shows are held by the local
Agricultural Society and Farmers Institute, and there Is also a branch of
lhe D. C. Stockbreeders Association.
As will be seen from the foregoing,
; settlers coming to the Columbia Val-

Montreal. April 23.—-CtHl, J. S. Dennis, C. M. li., chief commissioner of
the department of colonization of the
C. H. R., returned from Russia via Japan ami Vancouver yesterday. Col.
Dennis went to Siberia last fall as director of transportation and Information on the general staff of the Can-!
adiau military expedition and In ad-!
ditlon was chairman of the Canadian
trade commission appointed by order
hi council lust October to study trade
conditions in Siberia. He was nlso
Canadian Red Cross Commissioner
for Siberia.
Col, Dennis states thnt the commission made a very thorough study
of trude conditions in Siberia and had
many meetings with the representatives of Hie Siberian government, the
co-operative societies, tho locnl banks
and business organizations and they
obtained a vast amount of valuable
Information regarding the poselbill-
lies of developing the condition of
trado In Siberia. Tliis Information,
which »ill form Hie subject of a full
report lo the government indicates
that at present there is a demand particularly in Eastern Siberia for large
quantities of goods manufactured In
Canada, including clothing, hoots,bedding, agricultural Implements, binder
lwine, hardware, etc, but that the
possibility of developing any Immediate trade relations in these much
needed articles is very poor owing to
the chaotic political, financial and
transportation conditions existing in
Siberia. Refraining from expressing
any opinion regarding the political
situation Col. Dennis pointed out that
tho financial Is such as to preclude
any possibility of doing business on
sound lines. All gold and silver coinage has disappeared nnd all kinds of
paper money is in circulation, including thut Issued by the old Imperial
The chaotic conditions of the transportation system provided by the
trans-slberlan railroad, which at present is the only means of getting
goods into the interior will be realized by the statement that at the preseni time there is over a million tons
of freight, the natural products of the
country, piled up along the railway
line through Manchuria and Siberia
waiting movement to Vladivostoch
for export and at that point over a
million and a half tons waiting shipment into the interior for distribution to people who are in desperate
need of much of these goods. It may
therefore be accepted that while there
is a demand and ready market at good
prices in Siberia for goods manufactured in Canada the existing political
and transportation conditions there
render it impossible to hope lor the
establishment of trado relations on a
satisfactory basis at present.
