Kimberley. The final game for the j
G.W.V.A. football trophy, now held
by the Kimberley team, will also be

create good competition and great
interest. Finals in public school
sports and a tug-of-war contest will

and service clubs.
It is now only a little over six
weeks to Victoria Day, and the G.

Although the mad to Smith Lake
is not in a very good condition just
now many pedestrians and n number
of motorists have heen over it iu the
past few weeks for a look at their
favorite   spot   as   n   summer   result.
Conditions wilt he much batter this
year there than in the past. The
posts and sticks, und everything
which lhe old mill there had buried
in the lake years ago have been re-
n... -ed, and the place has heen filled
in with sand. Approximately a hundred tons of gravel and sand have
been hauled into the lake. There is
also lots of sand on the beach for
kiddies and others who like to play
in  il.
A pier has also heen built, extending nearly to the diving hoards.
Piles were driven last winter when
the ice was on and a platform built
over the top of them, making it a
great improvement over the floating
walk which wns used last season.
The frontage has heen cleaned up,
Bhado trees pruned and the underbrush removed. Many of the old
stumps have also been removed and
it in planned as soon as the weather
Is warm enough to level off the
frontage and put into lawn grasB. A
fence has also been built around the
bench to keep stock out, which will
improve conditions to a great extent.
A diving chute Is now under construction and will be ready ns soon
as the bathing Reason opens. A good
many inquiries have already been
made in regard to camping sites, and
more ground is to be cleared off
and made ready for campers) A
number of families camped there lost
summer and it is expected the number will be increased this year.

for dancing m soon aa tbe road is
Tuesday evening the Pythian
Castle hall was the scene of a very
pleasant function when Pythian brothers to the number of sixty met t<
put candidates through the third de
gree of the order.
The visitors consisted chiefly of
North Star Lodge, No. 5(1, of Kimberley, who eaine thirty one strong,
the degree team putting several candidates through the degree.

A pleasing little event took place
when Past Chancellor Commander
E. A. Hill presented to Brothers F.
Carlson nnd A. Watkins the Past
Chancellor's jewels, from North Star
Lodge, No, 50.
Brother Hill referred in appropriate terms to the worth of Brothers j
Carlson and Watkins to the order,
both being held in high esteem by
the brother knights. Then followed
the putting on of the degree of
knight, when a team composed of the
following members put on the work
in a manner which would have done
credit to a team from a much stronger lodge than Kimberley.
King—Earl Nelson.
Senators—E. Hughes, H. Whitford.

With the candidates safely over
the burning sands the company adjourned to the banquet room, where
the host, Bro. Geo. Anton, had prepared a fish and chips dinner which
could not be excelled, all present declaring that a better feed could not
be had in "Ole Lunnon" itself.
The after-dinner speeches indulged
in by many present proved both profitable and highly entertainir.?. Were
there more of such get-together affairs similar to that which took piace
on Tuesday night when over thirty
residents of Kimberley sat down with
about an equal number from Cranbrook, the interests of both Cranbrook and Kimberley would be better
served. The evening was concluded!
with vocal selections from F. Ralph
and giving of rousing cheers for the
home and visiting lodges. The officers;

after the impact for both cars to he
separated by 75 feet, and that no
one nf the three occupants of each
car were seriously hurt, is more in
the nature of a miracle than anything
that has come to the attention of the
public here for some time.
The above facts were part of the
story of on auto accident which tool:
place on Saturday evening, when cars
driven by R. McDonald of Cranbrook
and R. Burke of Kimberley met in n
cloud of dust at a point about one
and one-half miles below Marysville.
According to the statement of one of
the drivers the afTair was entirely
accidental, blame apparently being
attachable to nt one.
Returning on his last trip from
Kimberley Saturday evening, McDonald was following another Kimberley stage driven by Don Revie.
Mr. Burke, returning to Kimberley,
left the middle of the road to pass
Revie's car, but* in the cloud of dust
following the south bound cur, he
failed to note the approach of the
second car until he was hit hy it,
Gladys Brian, who, with Colin I
Leitch, was one of the occupants of
the stage car, was cut by the broken
glass, and Mr. Burke was also cut on
the face and head. Alex Fergus, an
occupant of Mr. Burke's car, was
pretty badly shaken up and suffered
for same time from shock.
That the McLaughlin sedan driven
by Mr. McDonald could be turned
completely over and stand the strain
of the 4000 pound chassis on the
closed top speaks volumes for the
manner in which the car is constructed. When the ear was examined it
was found that the doors could be
opened just as easily as if it had
been right side up, without any unusual strain upon it. It proves that
the closed car is the safer under all

of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. MacPherson
was the scene of an extremely pleasant social function, when Mesdnmos
F. M. MacPherson and W. II. Wilson
were joint hostesses at an afternoon
tea and daffodil sale. The weather
proved very favorable, with the result that a large attendance of
friends were present. The function,
which was given in aid of the Worn-
en's Missonaty Society of the United
Church, is likely to become an nn-
nual one, so great was the success
attending the first event of its kind.
It ih estimated thnt through the tea
and sale tbe sum of approximately
$60.00 wns netted to the Society.
During the afternoon the following
musical numbers were pleasingly rendered ;

There ure many things yet badly

fishingIor salmon
trout opens on
thursday this week
Information that trout fishing
would open in five East Kootenay
waters on April 15, as contrasted
with two last year, hut lhat otherwise the fishing season in that dis-:
trict would open was May 1 as usual,
was received from Ottawa Saturday
n'ght by C. II. Robinson, fisheries
overseer for this district in Kelson
and sent on to this city.
AH five waters contain thi' Kani-
loops trout only, usually called "salmon," the fry having be.ni planted
in them some years ago by thu Cranbrook Rod and Gun Club. It has
been the contention of the .club that
there are no spawning grounds in
those   lakes,  hence  thut  fishing  in
them wi'l not Interfere' with spawning.
Prom'or lake, :JS miles from Cranbrook, on the Windermere road, and
Horseshoe lake, half way between
L'ort Stele and Bull river,-are two
of the waters. Both of them had
an early opening date last year too
as a concession to the local organization. It is well known that 15-pound
fish have been taken from Horseshoe
lake at three years of age.
The other waters to open early
are Smith's lake, four miles out;
Rock lake, seven mile? northeast of
Wasa; and the Twin lakes, eight
miles south of Cranbrook, near Lumberton.      Rock lake has been com-
Dr. Sanford, Columbian College Principal, Speaks Here
on Sunday
To commemorate the completion of
the first year under the new national
movement of Church Union, recently
consumated, special services were
held at the United Church in Cranbrook on Sunday lust. Dr, A. M.
Sanford, president of Columbian College and first president of the B.C.
Conference, United Church of Cun-
uda, spoke at both morning and evening service, as well as addressing the
Sunday school at noon. Special music was rendered by the junior choir
in the morning and by the adult choir
in the evening.
Ahl. Addr...
At the morning service, after addressing a few remarks to tbe congregation on the work of Columbi
College, Dr. Sanford delivered the
first of what proved to be two very
able addresses appropriate to the occasion. He complimented the United congregation on the spirit of
unity which he understood existed
among them, and was pleased to
know that the future gave promise
of even better things, that a new and
more vital Interest was being taken
the affairs of the congregation.
Choosing for the subject of his
remarks the theme, "Greater Works
Than Those Done by Christ," he referred his hearers to St, John II, 4
to ]:'.. and 17 to 2.1, calling particular attention Ut the statement contained therein: "He thut cometh after
Me greater work shall he do."
The question naturally arose as to
what irrCater works could he done
by a disciple than that which Jesus
himself did. No good man hud ever
claimed himself to be better in point
of view uf moral life and character
than Jesus, nor can we expect greater works of power than those done
by him.

greater understanding of the great
principles and secrets of life than
Lioni   vi.   Tigers
Thursday afternoon last the Cubs
played their opening game in the
lacrosse schedule. The play was very
fast throughout, both teams working
vigorously to score. McFarlane, C.
Harrison and Heise played a fine
game for the Tigers, supported by
Barber and S. Moffatt. For the Cubs
the outstanding players were Dixon,
Lewis and Godderis. Both goalies
had a warm time during several
scrimmage?, from which they emerged dirty, but game.
The last period was scoreless, although both teams worked at top
speed. The Tigers checked hard and
closely, preventing the Cubs from
clearing to shoot. The score was 2
to  1   for the Tigers.

Lions   vs.   Cubs
The second game between these
two speedy teams on Monday last
ended in a lucky win for the Cubs,
in the last four minutes of play. Atchison, Flett and McBurney scored
for the Lions, and they were supported by Large, MacKinnon and
Dixon, who played a fast, clean game,
working their combination to perfection in the first two periods, in which
they scored four goals. In the third
and fourth periods the Cubs got
away; Lewis, F.lnies and Godderi-
v/orking hard and penetrating the
Lion's defence to score four goals,
MeFnrlane played well on the defence, saving many hard shots, Cas-

game, checking their men well. Thi;

I game
on   both   Side.,   Me  result   being  an
viewpoint we could see, however,
that Paul gathered more to Christ
than Jesus. In this respect he was
consequently greater than his master.
The speaker gave other instances to
show that the forerunners are not
the most successful, but those that
come after. It takes time, he said,
for the life of Jesus to work itself
Into the life of the world; even John
had his doubts as to Jesus being the
Christ, as he was looking for greater
r works. Today, some think that we
: need the coming of Christ to effect
an interest in Christian things. The
speaker showed that Jesus was a per-
most iptcresting evening of
wrestling took pluce recently at Yahk,
when three contests were put on
which were nil of good class, nnd
ihowing action enough to satisfy the
keenest of the wrestling fans of that
place who were in attendance. The
first bout w^s between a pair of game
youngsters. Howdy Horn and Royce
Thompson, both of Yahk, the former
winning two fulls out of three. The
second bout featured Henry Andersen nnd Paul Jepson. both well known
Yahk. This was n particularly interesting bout, although it did not
last very long, young Jepson making
ihort work of his opponent. He took
the first full in nbout one and a half
minutes with the head scissors and
double wrist lock. The second fall
he secured in the same manner in
only one minute.' It looks like a case
of "a chip off the old block" from the
way young Jepson is emulating his
father in fast work on the mat.
The main bout of the evening was
the final match between Ulson of
Minneapolis and Nels Jepson, recently of Yahk, These contestants had
previously met several times, Jepson
getting the better of the shows on
tbe whole, although he concedes
twenty pounds In weight to his opponent, This was a match which the
fans were looking forward to eagerly,
and there was a considerable sum ut
stake on it. Olson secured the first
fall in twenty minutes, after a hard
bout, getting the head scissors and
double wrist lock on Jepson, from
which the latter was unable to extricate himself, Jepson came back
strong for the second full, securing
it ufter 12 minutes' work with u clever unnamed hold. Jepson went onto
the mat at about 170 pounds and
Olson at about 100 pounds, Olson
was unable to continue for the third
fall and conceded the match to Jepson.

With regard to the progress being
made by the church, the speaker reminded them that our civilisation had
been built up by slow achievement.
As the mighty river was made up of
smaller contributing streams, so with
the United Church could he see great
hope from the union of the several
sources. If all realize that there is
room for all and are willing to do
new course  their bit  for the general good, the
United Church will be a mighty success. Composed of different peoples
in different walks of Lfe, we can realize a common fellowship. Without
elan distinctions we would be able
io realize a brotherhood which would
I r-oduce wonderful results on young
li -es, and what a richer world it
would be! Through it greater pro-
gii ns would be made in our own well

shortly to »ovt to Jtlmtorltf, when Us* » that town. trit-attd fa* tl* first llase wKfc di
vine sonship. The author of the
fourth gospel arrived at the conclusion that Jesus is the eternal word
of God made flesh. Quoting from
the N'icine, the Athanasian and other
creeds, the speaker traced the development of the various theological
views. With respect to them all he
stated their interpretations seemed to
be inadequate in giving a full view
of Jesus, His realness and the human personality depending entirely
on the existence of the New Testament. The desire to give an exact
definition, he claimed, was responsible for the failure to interpret him
adequately! Only the loving heart
can discover the real values in Jesus,
bitterness too often having characterized those who seek to explain Him.
The task, however, is beyond the
power of man. Personality is elusive. One may add characteristic to
charactcrtsHc in the case of any man,
and yet not grasp the secret of his
charm or influence. This is preeminently true in regard to Jesus,
He cannot be expressed in a theological formula.
Rather than quibble over definitions, it is more important to accept
the views of life given hy Jesus snd
thereby showing that faith is vital.
The world today needs no more doctrinal statements or d multinational
divisions, but its hope lies in men
becoming more like Jesus. As time
goes on, Jesus more and more becomes the supreme answer to all the
problem- of the ages. By receiving
His spirit, men will render the greatest service to the  world.

More than a score of entries for the
Dominion amateur boxing nnd wrestling championships to be held here
April 21 to 23, have already been
received by the New Westminster
Amateur Athletic Association, and
judging by the way they are coming
in, it is expected that there will be
an average of from four to six contestants for each of the fifteen events, f
Sectional elimination contests are
now being pulled off nil over the
•country. When these are completed

The championships will he held in
the Queens Park Arena, where the
seating arrangements will enable a
crowd of two thousand fans to sit
in comfortably. The New Westminster Amateur Athletic Association, an
organization representing all the
sporting clubs in tbe Royal City, has

CHAPTER   IX—-Continued
When the exigencies of a mellowing physique had made the brake
rods no longer a safe or comfortable
outlet for his wanderlust and had
forced Potts to write ex- to his beloved calling (as he had written it
long years before to his teaehership
in the college) nnd to seriously undertake retirement, he did so with
no small or mean gesture. Ex-vagabond and ex-professor though he
might bo, Potts would die before
giving up the liberty and the philosophic calm and peace of his avocation — nature-loving. Therefore,
knowing that this would in all probability remain his home for the rest
f his placid life, Potts had looked
around the vicinity that he loved best
■the nwe-inspiring mountain billows above Crater City, He had
looked with an eye to solitude, to
beauty, to utility. And he had chosen well und wisely—a sun-drenched
Innd hnrbor, a little covu of grassy
bottom between shores of high boul-
ilors and towering pines; an overlooking yet unseen place where Potts
could revel in the contentment of
doing nothing, while his ruminative
eye mused over far-flung prospects,
and from where he could see the
Trnnsrockinn tracki, below and with
air of a travelling connoisseur, watch
and listen to his favorite trains. Here
he hnd leisurely patched together, using odds and ends of timber and nondescript material, a makeshift shack
■his palace, as uncrowned king of
all he surveyed in a capital of hobo-
dom that was too lonesome a place
for anyone except eagles, and hobo
philosophers—nnd fugitives.
One of the latter class hud found
Potts a comforting host for two
week3 past now. For Bob Wilson,
together with little Bobby, had shared the peace and the concealment of
Potts' shack Bince the day following
the  wreck  of the  Limited.
When Bob had stumbled away
from the scene of the catastrophe,
bearing Bobby in his nrms, it was
without definite plan or purpose.
All that night he had wandered aimlessly in his grief, far back into the
country, then returning to the railroad after dawn of the next morning, and crossing to the west side of
Granite Gorge. Not far from here
Potts had found the wayfarers and
taken them "home." Bob had not
cared or dared to venture out of his
hiding place since then, but from
papers brought back by Potts from
his daily foraging excursions to the
tracks Bob learned that he was held
responsible for the wreck—learned
how he had run past the Rise Ravine
Junction signal. He remembered that
this was the moment of which he had
dropped his watch. And he cursed
the Fate that seemed to be making
endless game of him.
On the same night thnt Caroline
fared forth from Crater City with
broken hopes and heart on the westbound Limited, Bob sat up late in
the doorwny of the shack, watching
storm cohorts marshalling behind a
bulwark of clouds in the west sky
nnd then sweeping across Nature's
eternal battlefield of the sky accompanied hy the drumfire of the thunder's artillery' and flashing of lightning.
Potts was nn early retirer, aa well
as an early riser; he was snoring on
n pinebough bed in n far corner of
the shack. Bobby, too, was asleep
—on a grass mat before the embers
of the evening fire. For Potts' construction skill wns such thnt he had
been able to round off nnd complete
the homcyness of his shack by a
stone fireplace and chimney.
Bob, looking nt both, strangely
felt no anchoring impulse to remain
here tonight. The end had come for
him. He had been responsible for
the death of his best friend. He
had undoubtedly forfeited whatever
place he had attained in the affections of Caroline.
Perhaps he should have gone back
j and faced the music, yet it would
be enduring the cross without getting
the crown; he would have been willing to take any punishment did he
but know that Caroline would be
I waiting for him at the end, that she
'would understand and forgive. But
his own stupid indirectness and dodging had stacked the cards against him,
where his only purpose had been to
save her the pain of naked knowledge. He had wanted to apprise
her in a gradual and saving way.
Then, always, there was Jane I
Still, .lane could have been disposed
of quickly enough if publicity no
longer  mattered—if Caroline knew.
In this state and for his reasons, a
divorce after all these yearB of residence would have been but a matter of days. Bob wondered what
had happened between Jane and
Caroline. Had Jane told everything?
What hud Caroline thought—of that,
and of the present involvements?
He wondered how she had borne up
under the tragic news of the wreck
nnd her personal interest in it.
Without knowing so, Bob was enduring a form of nostalgia—of homesickness and lonesomeness for the
girl who, within the short space of a
few days, had come to mean everything in his life. He told himself
glumly that all of his indecision and
immediate troubles had been due to
the intoxication of finding himself in
love, of fear to touch upon anything
that would disturb or interfere with
that love. But things had certainly
been swept away from his clumsy
Bob   Wilton,   with   little   Bobby,
shared PolU* shack.
"What the hell difference doos
anything moke?"
He rose and stumbled away from
the hut through the rain; in his dazed, trouble-drugged mood he was
under a sort of enchantment, and
thought of nothing except claiming
surcease in the oblivion of the Gorge.
Unknown to Bob, Bobby had been
watching him for some time—pretending to sleep only as an excuse
under which to work out his mischievous plan to frighten Bob.
When Bob started away from the hut,
Bobby decided that his opportunity
had come.
Part of the "furnishings" of Potts'
mansion was a square, bleached bit
of muslin of the size of a crib sheet.
This had been allotted to Bobby in
order that his grassmat bed might
be as luxurious as possible. But with
childish disregard for the social
standing of this vicarious bedsheet
in u house of pinebough beds, he now
utilized it as part of his scheme to
throw a scare into Daddy Bob. With
a glowing end of stick plucked from
the fireplace, Bobby burned two eyes
in the sheet, clucking gleefully to
himself meanwhile; then he draped
the sheet over his head and ran out
into the night to follow Bob,

agricultural type, many of
them bringing money to buy

these days literally by the hundreds.
The above photograph, taken a
few days ago at the Union station.
Is a fair sample of the type of
immigrant that Canada is getting
from Europe this season, and the
picture speaks for itself as to the
standard of settler. During the
past several days many such Norwegians, Swedes and Danes have
been included in the large parties
transported from the seaboard by
special Canadian National trains.
They are placed by the C.N.R. Colonization Department in positions
on farms throughout the prairie
provinces, with the idea of working for a year or two to learn Canadian farm methods before taking
up land of their own.
The last week in March saw the
largest movement of immigrants
to Canada since pre-war years and
the outstanding feature in connection therewith is the vastly superior type which is coming to this
country under the present immigration regulations.   Also, during
that period a party made Up of 57
British families from the S.S. An-
tonia reached the west under the
Empire Settlement Act to establish
3,000 British families on the land
in the Dominion, Large as this
party was, it formed but a part of
the British group which crossed tho
Atlantic in charge of the Canadian
National Railways, there being in
addition iiKO single men, 70 boys
and 10 single women. All these
people, numbering 089 Bouls, travelled to Canada under the special
supervision of Mr. J. S. McGowan,
director in London of the C.N.R.
lecture course in Canadian farming.
The insert might be entitled
"Canadians by Conviction." It

rel, who visited the shingle bobber
in Montreal between trains. When

the shooting which followed at Belle-

A.R.P. and Corporal Usher of tho
It.C.M.P, were shot and killed, has
died in prison. Bossoff was hanged
for the murders. Auloff'* death took
place on April 6, with the inquest,
held by Dr. King, giving the cause of
death as miners' phthisis, a sort of
tubercular disease which affects
miners. He was arrested at Butte,
Montana, and brought to Lethbridge
to stand trial, and was sentenced on
January 20, 11)24. This is the laat

killed in the gun battle with the police  at Bellevue.
The Great Mutiny    (Continued)
Still spreading, the revolt took
form everywhere, white officers being
shot down or bayonetted and their
wives and children tortured to death,
all Europeans who could be siezed
subsequently suffering in the same
way. At Lucknow, through the vigilance of Sir Henry Lawrence, one of
the ablest and most clear-headed of
the Anglo-Indian military ndmisis-
trators, the mutiny was long delayed, but at length the men broke their
allegiance and after some desultory
fighting, left the eity to join a general gathering of the mutineers at
Nawal)gunge about eighteen miles
distant. With the European garrison Sir Henry went forth to disperse
the rebels and although he did nil
' that valour and good example could,
ihe was overpowered by numbers, nnd
fighting every inch of tho way, had
to retire into the Residency, to the
very entrance of which he was chased. Brit:sh authority was ot an
end, und all that Sir Henry could do
was to place the Residency in the
best state of defence he could, before the place was besieged.
They sustained a lone and exhausting
siege, enduring terrible sufferings.
Provisions tan short, nnd Sir Henry
aga:n sallied forth, attacked the mutineers with 200 men and beat them
back. He was returning comparatively yictprlpqa when the "friendly"
natives trcacjiorpualy turned the guns
they w.re using upon his party and
poim-d rounds of grape shot into
their unsuspecting ranks. Sir Henry
Lawrence was himself wounded, and
three days after died, leaving a band
of devoted men and women to mourn
his loss deeply.
No  Quarter   Shown
At Bnreilly the usual butchery
took place, but mostly of the women
and children. Some of the officers
escaped, many of them exhibiting
great courage. At a place about fifty miles from Barcilly, the mutineers
broke out while the officers were at
church. They shot the clergyman as
he ascended the pulpit. Lieutenant
Speirs was sabred as he knelt at prayer; the doctor was shot as he drove
up to church; the magistrate of the

I village was butchered in cold blood.
The officers with their families escaped, to fall into the hands of treacherous guides, who had promised the
fugitives every protection. Then
they ordered the ladies to quit the
carriages In which they were seated
and walk under the scorching sun.
On alighting they were shot one by
one; some of the children were boy-
noted, some dashed to the ground.
The miscreants then killed nil the
officers, and subsequently, tho corpses were buried In a large hole dug
in lhe ground. At Neemuch a native officer persuaded the European
officers to take refuge tn an outhouse,
when he turned n cannon upon them
and would have blown then, lo atoms,
hnd not n loyal native secured their
escape—all hut a surgeon's wife, who
along with three children clinging to
her skirts and shrieking for mercy,
were cruelly butchered. At Benares
a terrible struggle took place between
the native and British forces, the
Sepoys being repulsed. At Allahabad the duplicity of tho flth regiment
of the native Bengal army was con
Bpirunus, even in that reeking hotbed of Sepoy treachery. One night
the officers heard the bugles sound
the alarm. As they hurried forth to
ascertain what was wrong, fourteen
of them were brutally massacred.
Other officers met their death at different points. Then, joined by 3,000
ruffians let loose from prison, the
mutineers began their work of butchery. For the unfortunate Europeans in lhe town it was an awful
night. Scores were killed In the
streets, and many were subjected to
the most fearful tortures. Their
noses, cars, lips and fingers were
cut off; then their limbs were hacked
and deuth came as a welcome deliverance. Nor were the children
spared, the poor little things being
often dashed to pieces before their
dying parents' eyes.    At Jhanai tha
British officers had, suepecting danger, secured themselves and a number of women and children in a fort,
I which the mutineers attacked with
'cannon and musketry. After a heroic
1 defence, during which the responsible officers were killed, the -little
i garrison lost heart, and offered to
I lay down their arms if safety was
promised. The promise was made,
Innd kept as the others had been.
Once outside the fort, the fugitives
were surrounded, seized and tied—
the women being placed in one row,
the men in the other. Then the massacre proceeded—the men being first
killed, and the women nnd children
afterwards. At Futtcghur, where
there were but thirty-three able-
bodied Europeans, although, with the
women and children, the whites numbered a full hundred, n heroic defence wns made; hut at length they
hnd to take to the river in boats,
where they were pursued by Sepoys
in immense numbers, and most of
them put to death, others being taken
captive, to meet n still more horrible
death in tho charnel-house at Cn\vn-
Cawnpore and The Black Hole
It wns at Cawnpore thnt ferocity
and treachery revealed themselves in
their most malignant form. Here the
leader was the nreh fiend Nona Sahib
—or Dhoondoo Punth, to give him
his own name—n wretch filled with
the most bitter hatred towards the
government and the British people.
Cruel, crafty, self-willed, wealthy and
ambitious, this capricious son of indolence wns accustomed to have his
every wish gratified; and he hailed
the mutiny as the means of enabling
him to slip Into much coveted power.
Early in June the tide of insurrection
swept over the city; but the British,
under Major-General Sir Hugh
Wheeler, K.C.B., together with civilians, women and children, had entrenched themselves to the best of
their ability, turning an hospital barracks and the soldiers' church into
temporary and feeble forts. They
had to sustain for weeks a siege of
the most determined kind. They
could get no rest, no sleep, and food
was scarce. Subjected to incessant
attacks under the burning Indian
sun, their strength wns exhausted
and their numbers reduced. Around
them nnd among them fell a constant
hail of shot, shrapnel nnd bullets, and
finally red-hot shot fired on the
buildings they were so heroically defending, set their poor shelter on
fire. Nearly fifty of the weak and
wounded perished in the flames.
They knew not that succour was approaching, and when the treacherous
Nana offered them, if they would lay
down their arms, free, unmolested
passage to Allahabad, the garrison
came forth—300 women nnd children, 160 Holdleis nnd an equal number of non-combatants. For ull the
hideous details of the sequel, It Is
sufficient to say thot It had been no
port of the plan that man, woman or
child should escape. The mock ur-
rnngement was that they should sail
from Cawnpore in bonts, and they
were escorted to the water by the
rebel army, whose demeanour to the
wretched fugitives was anything but
encouraging. When they had embarked, a pre-arranged signal was
given, and the work of massacre
commenced. The surface of the
water was swept by bullets, and
heavy guns threw their shots into the
crowded boats. Bravely the British
struggled, but to no purpose; soon
the flowing Ganges wns red with
blood and filled with the dead and
the dying. Boats stuck on the banks
and the helpless occupants were butchered where they lay. One large
boat containing General Wheeler and
party, got down the river a bit, hut
was recaptured, und all on board—
GO men, 25 ladies and 4 children—
taken prisoners and reserved for the
Nina's slaughter-room. There the
white-haired General and all with
him, were brutally shot—"the brave
women clinging to their husbands,
from whom they refused to be seper-
att d.   Still, after this butchery, there
remained one hundred nnd twenty-
two and children, who were removed
to the Assembly Rooms. A fortnight
after, when Havclock and his avengers were at hand, under the immediate direction of the Begum— a creature of the Nana—a number of troopers entered the rooms where the prisoners lay huddled together, and the
work of death commenced. This
took place late in the evening; in the
morning sixteen poor wretches who
had escaped the general carnage were
hewn to pieces, and all the bodies
were dragged forth nnd flung into an
outside well to rot and pollute the
already foetid air.

Several of the local kiddies had
plenty of fun with a "fishing pole"
on Sunday last and celebrated the
opening of the fishing season without
journeying heyond the government
bridge. About half a dozen boys

bridge, pulling out char as fast as
the hook could be baited. Incidentally quite ^s much enjoyment was
derived from watching the big fish
chasing the smaller ones. For some
reason the water was quite clear and
allowed a good view of the slant.

it is reported an argument took place

that as a result of this argument, Joy

An English murderer has practically ten chances

States a murderer has in the first place nine chances
in ten of escaping the police, and then, if he be caught,
he has nine and a half in ten of not being condemned
to capital punishment. In the majority of cases, he
finds himself before a jury too sentimental or too ignorant to declare a definite verdict; or if the jury is intelligent and just, the guilty man has a hundred means,
provided he has money, of dragging the affair out interminably and finally escaping his deserved fate. As

interment made in Creston cemetery,
and the Wynndel district was almost

W. II. Wilson, president of the
Cranbrook Board of Trade, announced to The Herald that he received
telegraphic advice on Thursday of lust
week to the effect that the road
through the Crow's Nest Pass would
be closed for a period of twenty
days, dating from Friday, April 9th
to allow of new construction work
being carried  on.
The section which has been closed
is that extending around the south
end of the little Crow's Nest Lake.
A road construction gang is doing
heavy work on that lap of the truil
and in the meantime the department
of public works is endeavoring to
have the old trail over the mountain
rth of the lake made available for
traffic. Right now, however, it is
mpassable on account of snow.
The road over the mountain has a
,'ery heavy grade and can be negotiated only by cars uf good pulling
powor. Motorists planning to drive
west over the Red Trail are asked to
bear that fact in mind. Cars may be
hipped by freight from Coleman to
Crow's Nest station for a small
pleted  course at Yahk.

Theatregoing citizens of Cranbrook
will be glad to know that the Players Club of the University of B.C.
will present their most euccessful
comedy in the Auditorium on May
George Bernard Shaw's witty
comedy, "Pygmalion," as presented
by the Players' Club of the University of British Columbia, hus received
very hearty endorsation from all
sources. Vancouver critics are unanimous in praising this amusing
tory of the flower girl who wished
to become a ludy. In New West.
minster and Nanaimo, the presenta
tion was equally successful. In the
former place, the Columbian remarked: "The presentation of 'Pygmalion1
ut the Edison theatre lust night proved to be the best yet of these pleasing annual affairs, and certainly the
audience was not slow in marking
its appreciation of the clever, finish'
ed manner in which the various characters were portrayed." The NanaJ.
mo verdict was equally enthusiastic:
"Patrons of 'Pygmalion' left the Dominion theatre last night convinced
thut the production was not only, to
dute, the Players' Club's best brilliant
achievement, but the season's finest
comedy. Each and ewery character
was rightly interpreted, and in a
manner that would grace a piofex
siona) stage,"
This genuinely entertaining comedy
by England's most brilliant dramatist will he presented here at the Auditorium on the evening of May 18.
Putrons may feel assured f a profitable evening.

Surveyors have been busy in Yahk
lately, surveying a logging road from
Yahk to a big bunch of white pine
timber, estimated at ten million feet,
and situated up on the hills about
five and a hulf miles out of Yahk.
The idea is to get this road, which
when completed will not have over u
five per cent grade, completed by
the first of August next. The intention then is to use heavy motor
trucks to haul the timber with, instead nf the old fashioned teum und

is thought will employ about u hundred men, will go a long way towurds
improving business conditions in

While the dates of Chautauqua
this year have not yet been finally
decided, it has been settled that the
engagement will this year be reduced
to four days instead of seven, during
which there will be seven programs
presented instead of the usual eleven.
There will be a corresponding reduction in the guarantee required to be
pu|t up by the local committee, and
the price of the season tickets will
also be reduced accordingly.
Programs Should Appeal
Below is given a brief synopsis of
the seven programs which will be
presented on the Chautauqua platform here this year:
"Cappy Ricks," a delightful come-
dy—a play that has made millions
laugh—will be produced by the Mur-
tin Erwin Players with a carefully
selected cast and settings, "Cappy
Ricks" Is a story of the Sun Francisco waterfront; the story of a weather-
beaten old sea captain, whose rough
exterior conceals a heart of gold, or
at least one full of kindness and love.
There is u wholesome atmosphere
surrounding the lives of the quaint
characters, and a delightful love
story threading the plot.
Known aa "England's Greatest
Reader," John Duxbury comes from
across the sea to fill a niche in the
entertainment world hitherto unoccupied to any degree. Few are the
opportunities of the people of Canada of hearing this famous interpre
Ernest Toy is a distinguished Aus
fralian violinist, an artist whom it is
u pleasure to hear. Opening his interesting musical career in Queensland when he was five years old, Mr.
Toy was sent to London at an early
age, and there received a diploma
from the Royal Academy of Music,
being one of the youngest ever to receive this honor. He appeared on
many programs with famous musicians, and later toured with the Melba-
McCormick Grand Opera Company.
Unquestionably a man with a message is Dr. Gordon B. Smith—a message deeply needed in the Dominion
of Canada. His lecture is "The Narrow Gate in the Wall of Life." As
an educator and a student in the
field of sociology, he has studied first
hand many of the problems that affect people of all ages. Dr. Smith
is a fluent, rapid speaker who possesses to a rare degree a mastery of
choice English.
Strong   Musical   Presentation
There are perhaps few finer singing organizations in the world than
the Russian Cathedral Sextette.
They are all Russians and finished
artists. Their intense love of music
and enthusiasm to give their audiences the best they have, elevate their
performance to a standard quite in
a class by itself. They constitute
a colorful, timely, artistic production
which cannot be duplicated, consisting of superb solo voices and thrilling
harmonious singing ensemble,
. Senor Cardona, the brilliant Mexican pianist appearing with the Russian Cathedral Sextette, was born in
Zacatecas, Mexico. He is proclaimed
a great artist, and has been showered with praise and applause. His
thorough musicianship, his delicacy of
touch and sentiment, together with
Mb masterful portrayal, make him an
outstanding artist and pianist.
To   Finish  Strongly
A straight-from-the-shoulder lecturer is Joel W. Eastman, who left
an active business to enter the lecture field, and has attained flattering
success. In the discussion of the
practical, social and economic questions, he attacks them with the force-
fulness and directness of the clearheaded, far-sighted, modem-day business man. He has recently completed
some outstanding community work in
conjunction with the Boards of Trade
in a number of the larger cities of
Eastern Canada. Mr. Eastman Is
Canadian born and understands
national problems,
Leake's Orchestral Entertainers
present a program of rare excellence
throughout, ranging from classic
ensemble selections to "barnyard
songs" which are unique and surprising. The novelty of the company

which include the violin, saxophone,

Tha recent articles on proper leads
have stirred up considerable interest
and at a result many interesting hands
have been submitted. Here is one illustrating tbe ideal trump lead:
Clube — K,9,3 :     Y
Diamonds —A, J, 7 :A       D:
Spadea—K, J, 10,6,4       i     Z
No score, first game. Z dealt and bid
three hearts, A three spades, Y four
hearts and all passed.  What is A's
Eroper opening lead? Z's bid of three
earts and his partner's raise indicate
without doubt that YZ huve a set up
heart suit. A's only hope is to take (our
trkki in the other three suits and his
best chance to do so is to force the lead
to him. For that reasun this hand is a
fine example of a trump lead. It cannot
do any harm and may save a trick or
so. Don't hesitate to lead trumps under
such conditions: First, when sure that
opponents have all the trump*; second,
when partner has not indicated a suit;
and third, when the leader has no suit
to open except at a disadvantage. When
these three conditions are present, lead
the trump. It cannot lose and may gain
a trick.
After the first lead the dummy hand
It placed on the table and from then un
the players have less guess work and
more thinking to do. Very often a game
can be saved by using a little judgment
and common sense. The following hand
held by Y is a good example;
Hearts—10, 7
Clubs —K.Q.J, 10,8,4
Diamonds— 10, 4, 3
Spades —A, 8
Y      :
A       B:
Hearts — A, 6,4
ClubB — A, 9, 3
Diamonds —■ 9, 8,1
Spades —K, 10,9,3
No score, rubber game. Z dealt and bid
one no-trump, A passed, Y bid two
clubs, B passed and Z bid two no-
trump. All passed and A opened ths
queen of hearts. H won the trick with
the ace of hearts. What should helrad?
The player holding H's hand Ini back
the six of hearts which Z won with the
king. Z then led clubs ami established
his clubs before be lost the ace of
B|udes. As a result Z won game and
rubber, losing only one club and three
heart tricks. If B had stooix-d to consider at trick two, he would have realized that if he took the ace of spades
out of Y's hand, the latter could never
make the club suit. The question is,
how can I- force Y to play tbe ace ol
spades. He cannot be sure of doing so
by leading a low spade for Z may have
the queen. If he leads the king of
spades, however, he is Biire either of
forcing Y to play the ace or give him
the trick. If the latter, he should lead
a low spade at trick three. Y must now
play the ace and now cannot make the
club suit. If B had led the king of
spades at trick two, he would not only
have saved game but also would have
defeated the two no-trump bid by one
trick. Think this hand over very carefully and be sure you understand the
principle involved. It is one that comes
up very frequently and, if thoroughly
understood, will be of great practical
The following problem looks easy until you investigate it a little more closely. Then you will discover that AB have
a good defense to practically all of YZ's
attempts to win four of the seven tricks.

Ancient Bogey Laid to Rest
Canadian Pacific President Outlines His Company's Attitude to Railway
Situation in Important Statement—Believes Improvement in
National   Conditions Will   Provide   Best Solutions of
Railway Problems.
K.W. Bendy, K.C.
In an address to
* the Montreal
Canadian Club
recently, E. W.
Beatty, Chairman and President of the Canadian Pacific,
made nn Important contribution
to public understanding of the
Canadian i nil-
way situation.
Mr, Boatty briefly outlined tail-
way li l,at o ry.
When ambitious
sot   afoot,   after
railway projects
tho completion of thu Canadian Pad
fie hnd fulled because far abend of
national or commercial necessities
and WON) taken over by the Government lo provent their physical dissolution and to savu tbe credit of
Canaila and Canadian Institutions,-the
action of tho Government was variously viewed. Some opposed It fear-
lug the consequences of thu excursion of thu government into business! others approved because they
regarded Government ownership as a
panacea for most of our transportation and economic ills.
Never Wauled (. N. It
Tho successive steps towards government acquisition of these properties Vas Justified by some who favored It by the bogey of tbe Canadian
Pacific Hallway Company. When
the absorption of the Canadian
Northern was proposed the people
were told that the Canadian Pacific
hod actually made a very favorable
bid for them. "Tbe Canadian Pacific," said Mr. Beatty, "were not
anxious to acquire tbcm and bad
made uo offer of any kind for them.
Parliament waa later urged to uup-
port government acquisition of the
Grand Trunk partly on the ground
that otherwise those roads would be
'gobbled up by the C. P. R.'
"There existed objections that rendered that possibility almost ridiculously remote. There existed by
statute absolute prohibition against
any arrangement of amalgamation.
Duplication by the Grand Trunk of
then existing Canadian Pacific facilities rendered its acquisition unnecessary and unwise. Tbe Grand
Trunk could not be divorced from
the Grand Trunk Pacific with Its
enormous liabilities, which, I imagine, no corporation in Canada could
think of assuming even If able to do
so. Lastly, the acquisition of the
Grand Trunk had never been unvested to Uie Canadian Pacific nr by (he
Canadian Pacific, and hnd never been
considered or contemplated In any
way or by any means, direct or indirect. It was the old familiar bogey,
namely, that of securing an imaginary secondary purchaser In crder to
make the purchase more attractive
to those who had some doubt as to
whether or not they wished to make
the purchase at all.
"Methods have not changed and
oeriodicallv come rumnura n* wn.
spliucy to take over or In some way
Injure the property of our competitors and lhat these are encouraged
by those friendly to the Canadian
Pacific So long as there is government ownership, political considerations Will be Involved, and where
there are political considerations
tin re nre many rumours and much
propaganda and publicity. The
changes which have reduced Canada's
railways to two large systems, one
govcrhmenlally nnd tbe otlwr privately owned and operated, have interjected to a greater extent political considerations as part of business
admlnlstratiou. They naturally In-
lorost men In public life and taxpayers, tho former providing the
necessary funds and the latter paying tho Mil-
i'r.uile Iiilftalire Lauded.
"Tho Canadian Paciflo pays In Federal tagea 15,479 per day for the privilege of enguglng In railway competition v. itli tliu government of its own
country. Tito things upon which the
progress of this country has heretofore depended are those upon
which our future prosperity will likewise depend. Private initiative and
tho effort of corporations, groups
of men and Individuals ure what will
make for Canada's commercial prosperity and economic stability. I believe with the late President Harding
that there 'should be less government in business and more business
In government. And so, when you
turn your minds to this railway problem, remember that public opinion
is often misinformed because the
facts are nut in the possession of
those who advocate one theory or
another; that where you have two
houses and not enough guests to fill
both there Is hound to be some waste
due to duplication of facilities; that
when companies are In competition,
each must preserve and expand its
business else it will die and that
healthy competition Is good provided
the minimum of waste is secured hy
economical administration.
"The burdens ot the country are
heavy and should be reduced so far
us reasonable and with expedition.
The Canadian Pacific has endeavored
to give the best service possible, and
to show its faith to ths country by
reasonable expansion of its facilities
where public   necessities   required.
"Nothing Is more important to the
successful operation of Canada's railways than fair rate schedules. Pressure Is periodically brought to bear
looking to the granting of rate concessions on ground of national of
local Interest, and I fear many Canadians feel that a difference In the
character of ownership of these railways Involves a difference in attitude
towards the matter of udequnte revenues. The only existing problem respecting rates is their reasonableness
and freedom from 'unjust discrimination.' These fundamentals do
not change with the character of the
ownership or the two principal companies.

Spur of Competition Reeded.
"A year ago a careful, unbiased
enquiry wus conducted uy the Senate
to obtain the personal views of men
or acknowledged authority on finance, transportation and business to
dwelt.,i a discussion In respect of a
possible solution of our transportation problems. Asked If I believed la
a railway monopoly for this country,
I answered that while no one should
attempt to forecast conditions for the
next few years with thai certainty
which would justify a definite and
unchangeable view, I did not believe
in a monopoly. 1 said I thought a
merger would involve difficulties In
administration which were scarcely
contemplated and which would In
time affect the character of the service given. I did not know how it
would be possible for an enterprise
with oti'! hundred to one hundred and
fifty thousand employees to be maintained In the highest state of efficiency without the spur of competition.
"These two systems are strongly
competing and the people of Canada
are obtaining excellent transportation facilities at lower rates than are
charged In any other country In the
world. The officers of the two systems get along In aa complete harmony as you would expect or I would
want. We both realize that our future 'prosperity Is inextricably linked
with that of the country.
"We gain little by living In a world
of criticism of our past railway mistakes—serious though they have
turned out to be. It would, I think,
be more profitable to devote our
minds to methods of improving our
national conditions. Our problems
revolve around the necessity for more
people, lower taxation and definite
fiscal policies national in their purpose and their scope. If we will
remedy these conditions we can face
our railway problem with the certainty of settling it when our perspective is cleurer because our know*
ledge is more precise, and when we
see our railways respond to the im-
petua which the country alone can
give tu them. Railway re-arrangements can save money but they can*
not create new traffic and in the last
analysis traffic volume, which means
Lhe country's development and commercial prosperity, will determine
the extent of the transportation bur*
The selection of Canada as the
country in which the third World's
Poultry Congress will be held is a
marked tribute to the prominence
which this Dominion is attaining
among the nations of the world. Only
two previous congresses have been
held; one at The Hague, and one at
Barcelona, Spain. The showing of
Canadian poultry at the Barcelona
congress Whs so outstanding that the
Invitation extended by the Canadian
Government tb hold the next congress
in Canada was accepted, notwithstanding keen competition for the
honor by other countries.
The preliminary announcement of
the third World's Poultry Congress
has just been issued from head quarters at Ottawa. It is very attractively prepared and illustrated booklet
which will carry into all civilized
countries not only the congress announcement, but a better conception
of Canada and things Canadian, The
information contained is concise but
complete! and the illustrations reflect
the various aspects of Canadian life.
Agriculture, naturally, plays a large
part, but the scenic beauties of the
country, and glimpses of its indus
trial and artistic development, have
not been overlooked.
The third World's Poultry Congress will be held at Ottawa, July
27th to August 4th, 1927. Full information may be obtained from the
Minister of Agriculture in each
province, who is chairman of the
Congress Provincial Committee, or

rVhen the West Beat the East
Proposals Made For Relief
In Deserving Cases On
Limited Scale
The question of the distribution of
the Canteen Funds in Canada is one
that has been up for some time.
In accordance with the general recommendations of the Royal Commission, the "Canteen Funds Act" was
passed by the federal government in
June, 1925, and under the provisions
of this act the lieutenant-governor
in council for British Columbia has
recently appointed a board of three
trustees for the province of British
Columbiu for the purposes of the said
The amount allotted to British Columbia is $222,887.91, which has already been received and deposited in
the Vancouver branch of the Royal
Bank of Canada. The major portion of this amount is being invested
in Dominion government bonds, in
order that the fund may draw a good
rate of interest.
Mailer for United Action
The trustees are unanimous in their
opinion that before any important
decision is made concerning the purposes for which the fund should be
used in British Columbia, there
should be an opportunity for full discussion on the subject by the ex-
service men of the province. One
reason why it has been diflicult in
the pnst to ascertain the considered
opinions of ex-service men on this
subject is because the ex-service men
are divided into so many separate
organizations. In view, however, of
the likelihood that in the near future
these organizations will all be united
under provincial commands, as well
as under one Dominion command, the
trustees have decided to keep the
main portion of the fund intact until
they can have an opportunity of discussing the matter with the provincial executive of the proposed new
united body.
As, however, it will probably be
several months before such organization is completed, and in the interval
there will undoubtedly be a number
of cases of acute distress amongst
the families of ex-veterans and their
dependants, the trustees feel that
they would be acting according to
the wishes of a great majority of the
ex-service men in using a limited
amount of the fund for such purpose.
The trustees have therefore agreed
that until such time as they can ascertain the wishes of the ex-service
men of the province, there may Ih
spent on the relief of distress
amongst ex-soldiers and their depen-
' dents a sum not exceeding the
| amount of interest that will be ac-
Icruing from the fund.
To  Afford   Temporary   Relief
The two suggestions put forward
are as follows:
j (a) Assistance to specially meritorious cases where ex-members of
the Forces and their dependents are
in genuine distress. No elaboration
is needed of this. The experience of
Uie United Service Fund of Great
Britain will afford valuable information and guidance. This is the purpose for which a similar fund is used
I in Australia and has been frequently
put forward as a suggestion.
Ib) The provision of scholarships
in schools (not necessarily confined
I to the higher grades) and universities for specially promising children
of ex-service men.
The Royal Commission further recommended that if the fund be used
for relief purposes, two principles
should govern, namely;
(a) Any use of the fund for relief purposes from time to time
should be limited to the class of cases
for which no relief is then available
from government sources; in other
words, the money should not be used
to relieve the State of any response
bility devolving on it. j
(b) Only ex-members of the C. E.
F. below commissioned rank woo
served in France or Kngland, and
their dependents, should be eligible
to participate in the benefits of the
Amount Available
On a rough calculation the fund
should draw interest at the rate of
about   10,000   a   year,   or   $800   a
' month. The trustees are particularly
anxious that all parts of the province
1 should receive equal consideration,
and R can be seen, therefore, the
amount available fur relief in any
one district will necessarily be limit-

with much improvement, if such
could be made on the 1924 staging

Big   Figure i  are   Surprise
The Granby and Britannia, with
their copper producing records, were
much admired, also the Premier,
which it was a tale of gladness to
be told, while you were mentioning
the monetary point, as to dividends
of mines. And what joy it would
have been to me to have been able
to relate the magnificent production
of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Canada, Limited,
Trail, British Columbia; why, they
would have been really and truly astounded if they had had the full import of lhe amount of the net profit.
They were actually astounded in
many instances when told as to the
production of 1024, and the net profit then shown.

My remarks will cover mainly the; the other space where the balance of
1925 period at Wembley, which in
the first place, I am prepared to
state eclipsed the wonderful display
made in 1924. When making such
a statement, it means much, for it
is well known that the 1924 exhibition o four nation's resources, raw
and manufactured, were then more
generally given the award of being
tbe most meritous showing of any
of the Dominions of the Empire.
Therefore, in giving greater credit
to the 1925 exhibition, it will be
necessary for me to show In what
manner did the 1925 eclipse the former year. This came about through
the several changes in the staging
of the different classes of our natural
resources, and the by-products of
same. Also many excellent additional
landscapes, which were a most artistic and true prototype of Canada's
great productive life, picturing the
prairies in a graphic manner, that
it whs easy to gather scenes of real
life of the prairies, as farmhouses,
outbuildings, crops growing, and
also being reaped by the consolidated machinery that is in general use
today, handling the reaping through
to the producing of the grain itself,
taken from the thrasher. Then we
viewed with delight moving trains that
are carrying the wheat to the port
at Montreal, and to our own great
open port, Vancouver; further we
had elevators which rose at various
points over the route of the said railway, which were kept ever moving by
a clever mechanical device, Then
came the cattle ranches, which gave
to the public an idea from whence
comes much of the beef and mutton
which they purchase throughout
Great Britain, The orchards also
came in for recognition, which were
so natural iu their portrayal that one
could very easily imagine that they
were viewing one of our own fruit
ranches.   Then there was also shown
the greatness of production of Canada's dairy  industry, butter, cheese,
bacon and milk, which are pictured
is under way of preparation. H.R.H.
Prince of Wales, stood forth in full
dress of an Indian chief, surrounded
>y  a number of  Indians and  em
j)ioyees, at his Alberta ranch.   This
■eene attracted much attention, aa it
icems everyone looks upon the little
Prince as their idol.   AH of this work
had been cleverly done in butter.
Natural Resources Shown
We now look around and view with
wonder the great water powers, and
the many immense power plants,
amongst which are several of the important ones of our own province.
The mining industry has alio been
well cared for, as many of the leading mines, smelters and mill plants
are well represented. The same
might be said In regard to the timber and its production; great logging
scenes on the rivers, takes and milts
are so accurately described that the
visitors could not help but appreciate
the immensity of this important industry,
The manufacturers' displays were
very evident by a large Increase from
many parts of the Dominion. One of
the unique exhibits in so far as our
province is concerned, was the stall
whleh displayed a vast showing of
British Columbia furs, .which were
offered to the public manufactured
or in the pelt. Mr. Munroe, Revel-
stoke, should be congratulated on his
nerve and enterprise, also on his good
fortune, for I was given to understand by Mr. Munroe that he had
succeeded in a financial way far exceeding his expectations. After the
closing of Wembley, Mr. Munroe
packed any left-overs, and with additions he Intended to make, started
for New Zealand to attend the exhibition which has been inaugrated
in that country.
K.otenar Mines Shaw Up Wall
One of the most distinct showings,
in so far as the mining industry of
British Columbia would be interested, was the exhibit of the silver-lead
ores. These were given prominence
by being placed at the main entrance
of the building. The moment you
stepped into the building you were
face to face with an immense glass
stand, which last year contained
grain. This year it was given over
to the display of ores, and British
Columbia waa most fortunate in being honored by having; its ores placed
in such * conspicuous place. The
principal samples comprised large
blocks of shining silver-lead from
properties that have made vast records In the past and are still doing
so; also from properties which have
during a later period made good records. Prominently among these
were Silversmith, Paradise, Sullivan,!
and Bluebell. While I mention this
class of ore, being fn such a conspicuous snot, I do not wish for one j
moment to have the idea spread
abroad that the samples   of   other
ultimately fall to the lot of the several exhibitors at the British Empire
Exhibition held at Wembley 1924 and
Canada   Will   Benefit
Canada's opportunity is here, in bo
far as being able to receive at the
hands of Great Britain a full and
complete spirit of business co-operation; yet this must be considered on
lines of strict integrity and a true
sense of patriotism. That is, if we
are to reach the heights that the
leading statesmen, manufacturers
and business men generally, are daily
giving voice to. Never in the history
of the Empire has there been such a
broad spirit amongst the leaders of
public thought throughout the Empire, especially so in Great Britain,
as to the necessity of a much closer
commercial, financial and get-together spirit between the Dominions'
and  the   Mother  Country.
it is for us to move, and that
quickly. I come back with a message of a true interest to be taken
In our affairs throughout. Expressions of real willingness tu tender aid
have been before me all during my
stay in Great Britain. All that it
is necessary for us to do is to see
that nothing goes forward asking to
be financed unless it lias full merits,
giving n fair chance to those who
are ready to obtain capital for enterprises in Canada, and especially
does this apply to our own province.
Guarding   a   Good  Name
I regret to state that I came across
several instances of actual fraud being carried out by unscrupulous firms
in London, and in one case I took
Issue, with (he result 1 put a stop to
selling shares thnt were supposed to
be backed Up by certain mining assets which the said firm did not have
even th«* shadow of a claim to, by
using the name of the property in
question. The astounding fact as to
the lack of knowledge by the public
generally of Great Britain to truly
understand the real difference as to
Canada and the United States very
often brings Canada in bad repute
when pot warranted. There is always more or less a bunch of sharpers who are postmasters in salesmanship of shares, gathered together in
London, who make a flashy showing
by opening splendidly furnished offices, and these crooks do not, as a
rule, carry anything that would show
they were in any sense loyal to Great
Britain or any portion of the Empire.
Notwithstanding,  I  come  back  to

There is one matter which I think
should be fully given publicity, that
the   propaganda   that   has   been
smiling faces of the people and the
genera] display of contentment.

Never fear, the coal question will

Joseph Fontaine returned to the
city last week after visiting Calgary,
Nelson and other places in connection
with the re-organization of the Car-

secured approximately $20,000.00 of
additional capital in the district,
which it is stated is quite sufficient
to ensure the successful re-organization of the company and the opening
of the mine this summer. Steps are
now being taken to incorporate under Dominion charter, the new company to be known as "The Carbon-
dale Coals, Ltd.," shares in which
are being taken by the former Car-
bondale Company shareholders on a
par surrender value, and for which
the new capital is being subscribed.
A meeting of shareholders throughout the district was called for Wednesday evening of this week at the

that shareholders from many outside
places in the district would be present, and at which the re-organization
proposals were strpngly endorsed.

leaving for the Coast, his place being taken by Col. M. V. Allan, of
Vernon. The old and the new occupant of the office were paying Cranbrook a visit on Wednesday of this
Those interested in the Homestake
mine were pleased to learn on Sunday last of a discovery made by the
crew of those engaged in the cross
cut which has just commenced when
about 0 feet in from the face a vein
of ore of considerable size was encountered. It has been examined
and found to obtain a vein of gold
and other valuable metals in paying
quantities. The extent of the deposit is not as yet known. Mr.
Scorgie brought some interesting
samples to the city.

Andrew Sutherland, government
boiler inspector, who has been in the
eity, had the misfortune to meet with
a somewhat serious accident recently.
When at Kimberley, he had the misfortune to have his face and hands
severely burned, when on entering a
boiler which had not been in use for
some time an explosion took place.
It is supposed that the oil with which
the inside of the boiler had been
wiped to preserve is while not in use
had become gassofied, and it was this
gas which Ignited from his lamp.
Mr. Sutherland is still at Kimberley,
progressing as favorably as possible.
A. A. Robertson, of this city, is
taking over the development work on
the Mayhook gypsum claims, which,
as reported last week, have been purchased by the Canada Cement Co.
A small crew of men will shortly be
put to work, it Is expected, and shipments may be made to Exshaw, Alta,
where the big cement company have
plant. There Is every Indication
that othpr gypsum claims, close to
those which were ipvqlved in the
deal last week, will »Isq he taken
over by a Manitoba company which
has been negotiating for some time.
In an article published last week
respecting negotiations for the transfer of the Paradise mine, Windermere, it was mentioned in these columns that they had been carried on
for the purchasers by W. A. Drayton
of Fort Steele. This was a mistake,
the name having been inadvertently
used instead of that of Lieutenant-
Commander Pilcher, also of Fort
Steele, by whom both the preliminary
negotiations In England, while the
Honorable Mr. Bruce was visiting
there last winter, and also later negotiations in this district, Tftett carried out, representing t|ie syndicate
