the superheated regions in the depths
of thc earth, and following Ihe lines of
least resistance, s(|Ueesed themselves
into the bedding planes ot the quartz-
Ites In horizontal sills or Into thc
fissures of thc formation forming
dykes. This will suit ns a very general statement, but it should be said
that many of the sills, or what were
horizontal sills originally, nre now
standing up almost as dykes owing to
thc tilting of Ihe strata of which they
form a part, this tilting having been
occasioned by surface shrinkage as
the world cooled down from the semi
molten mass in which It once existed.
That shrinkage Is still going on hut
on a vnstly reduced scale. It Is a
highly interesting fact that some of
these dlorlte sills are mineralized with
copper, silver, cobalt und nickel. Not
far above thc White Fish Creek Falls
one of the sills we are speaking of
shows like n great cliff, about four
hunderd feet. In height, on the left
hand side of the stream. The centre
for a depth of some 110 or 70 feel is
mineralized and thc ground has been
staked by thc Evans Brothers under
the name of the Alliance Group. The
writer hnd an assay of some of the
mineralized portions of the dlorlte
from these claims and found it ran
slightly over 2r'r copper, with X ounces
of silver to the Ion. Since that time
a mining engineer named McC.uiness
made an examination of the claims
and found the copper content much
as stated, but he informed the writer
that the rock carried about $10 to the
ton in nickel. Ho got a hint of the
existence of this metal from the fact

heartfelt condolence for the great loss
they have recently sustained by the
death of their honored and beloved

In response to a telephone call between eight and nine o'clock on Monday morning Chief of Police Hersey
proceeded to a shack on Van Horne
Street where he found the dead body
of Fred Buker, The coroner ,Dr. P. W.
Green, was immediately notified and
directed that a jury be summoned.
The Chief made a thorough Investigation but there were no signs of any
struggle having taken place, nor was
there any evidence that would indicate
foul play of any sort.
At the Inquest on Tuesday, the jury
comprised of G. B. Brown, (foreman)
\V, I). (Jilroy, W. G. Hayward, A. L,
McDermot, It. Dixon, and W. F. Doran
brought in a verdict of death from
heart failure.
The deceased had lived in Ibis district for a number of years but the
police have not been able to get ln
touch with his relatives, who, its far
as can be learned, live in Ontnrlo.
Magistrate Arnold had an offender:

'e a fact, leads one to question the
t'octrine of the indestructibility of

Oroup the Evans are interested in the
body on the Alliance Croup The
Home Group on the opposite side of
of the creek where they have done an
enormous amount of work on a body
of copper ore occurlng much as the
body on the Alliance Croup. They!
also own the Achilles and the Kelly!

Etmtnod them believe will turn out big

Native copper also occurs, some of it
in minute leaves, fine as gold leaf, in
thc minute cracks and fissures in the
quarts, Following this lead In the
direction of the Kelly Basin they ran
on to a fine lead of galena of as high
grade as any that ever was found in
the country. The writer never got
over the pass into the Kelly Basin but
by all accounts tlie claims which the
Evans have staked in there are of
greater promise than anything they
have at this side. Speaking of these

In the general direction of the strike
on the Achilles vein, but about 1,000
feet lower, are three crown granted
claims, known a sthe Pollen Group,
a short distance from thc Mackay Cabins on White Fish Creek. On one of
these claims a big lead of copper
thrust its face right out of the forehead of a rock bluff. It challenged
development and Major Pollen—he is
now doing his bit with the Royal Engineers in Englnad—had the vein
drifted on. A fine body of pre was
taken out for a distance of about 80
feet or so. and this ore ran right
across thc width of the vein, say five
or six feet. Thc ore was stilt there
in the face, but for some extraordinary renson, or what was more likely,
for no reason but to "make work" for
themselves, the fellows the owner had
to do the work turned off to the left
along what might be called a "false
wall" right Into the country rock and
kept along In this blind, insensate
fashion for perhaps 200 feet. This
work was costing the unfortunate
owner probably $15 a foot. Having
got so far without finding any hint of
the existence of the ore which they
left behind them in plain sight, they
began to cross cut to the right and
cress cut to the left. Nothing resulted.
They quit. Major Pollen had another
item to put to the credit of his extensive experience account. That appears to be thc tale of about tho stupidest piece of bad mining to be seen
In this country. The claims are second to none In the East Kootenay
country and most thoroughly worth
cnreful examination The moral of
it is, that not every man who under
takes to do assessment work ls a
miner, o rthe thirty first cousin to
one tin either his father's or his
mother's side. Many of them seem to
leave their brains nn the surface when
they get under ground.
The following letter from Cpl. J.

to us for publication.

Dear Louis. —-I was*, very pleased to
get your letter ot Dec. 5th, after it
had been Chasing over France and |
then b*ck to this uddres*. Well, I
suppose you would hear all about j
my misfortune from Mrs. Bird, 1
got it from mustard gas shells when
up near Passchendaele. h made me
blind for ::bout 10 days and 1 suffered
terribly with my throat und cheat t'or
nearly three weeks, losing my voice
also. Am glad to say. however, that
1 got riu of it from my lungs and
don't suppose I win jave my ill
effects left. Mustard gas makes one
liable to bronchitis. My eyes are
still pretty weak, so wear a shade at
present. Tomorrow I see the oculist
and he will say whether I need glasses for a while or not. You will be
interested to know that 1 have been
awarded the Military Medal, which
came as a great surprise to me, as I
only got* the news on Saturday last,
tn a letter of congratulations from
our Brig-General. What a treat It Is
to be over in "Blighty" again. Today commences my third month here
aud this hospital has been a real
home. Everyone is so nice and kind.
1 managed to get my "Blighty" leave
at the end of last August after being
in France just over twelve months,
I have had a number of "Heralds"
sent to me ln France but they were
not returned to me here so have lost
the local news. I met Percy Adams
one day near Vpres, hut bad only
about a couple of minutes speech
with him. He Is Lieutenant in a
motor M. G, Battery. I did not see
much of any of the Cranbrook boys
for some time before becoming a casualty. You appear to have bad
quite a few Interesting changes In tbe
Department since last writing. It
was quite a relief to know that Mrs.
Bird and Jac.ky arrived back in Cranbrook quite safely. I see they have
gone to stay with Mrs. Bamford at
Waldo. Now I will close for the present time and will be pleased to hear
from you again soon.

Dear Nora.—Just a few lines of
thanks to the Junior Red Cross Society
for their kindness in sending me a
Christmas parcel; also many thanks
to yourself for packing It. I received
it. last night, O.K., it came In fine condition and thc contents very lovely.
Quite a number of tlie Cranbrook
boys here received the >;ame parcels,
so I thought I'd drop you a Hue to let
you know I received It with thanks.
I met your brother West before I
left France he sure has grown since
1 saw him lust in Cranbrook, and
am pleased to hear he Is still .veil
and enduring the hardships In France
this winter. I'm very lucky to be

going back in tbe spring.
I won't stop for more so with very
best  wishes  to  all  your  people tt

you for the parcel, with best wishes,

There was an attendance of 123 at
the regular monthly meeting of the
Cranbrook Women's Institute at the
Parish   Hall   on   Tuesday   afternoon
After  the  adoption' of the  minutes
j of the preceding meeting the Secre-
1 tury, Mrs. J. W. Burton, presented the
; correspondence,  which  included  let-
| ters of appreciation of Institute par-
j eels  from  several  ot  the  boys overseas,    Including   Charles   Morrison
Percy Adlard, Norman Grtswold,  B.
W.  Attree, Cam   Lindsay, aud T.  H.
Hronstou.      Notices    were    received
from the Army Post Office regarding
parcels sent to Pte, A. Edging ton, 931*
2.13. who had returned to Cannda and
Pte, J. Birch, 307899, who could not
be traced; these notices demonstrate
the care taken to ensure delivery of
all parcels.
A letter was read from Hon. Dr. J.
11. King acknowledging 'receipt! of
copies of resolutions endorsed at the
last meeting and stating that they
would receive careful consideration.
A suggestion from the Secretary of
Adylsory Board regarding establish-
ment of a labor bureau was read audi
the Heeretary will communicate with
the Department of Labor in this connection.
The net proceeds of the Valentine j
Social amounted to $40.0!) and a dona-
tion of $5.00 for purchase of yarn was
received from Mrs. Norman McCluro.
The directors accordingly purchased j
yarn to the value of SRO.OO and this'
has been distributed und will shortly
be on the way overseas in the form;
of socks.
Mrs. Q, H. Thompson reported that
3fl pairs of sacks had been completed
during February making a total of
8ti pairs this year.
Mrs, j. p. Leslie, convenor of the!
Patriotic Committee, stated that she!
bad cut nut 318 personal property'.
bags. These were distributed to be j
made up. Mrs. Leslie mentioned that
the Red Cross authorities are asking!
for 20,000 of these bags monthly sol
that tbe need is urgent.
The Resolutions Committee, wlip
with the assistance of Mr. (}. j.!
Spreull. had prepared reeommendu-
tion regarding certain laws that effort ■
women aud children unfavorably, presented a report, which was adopted |
and will be forwarded to Hon. Dr
The concensus nf opinion was that
Mrs. H. A. McKowan's paper on "The i
Conservation Problem" wns the best
paper that had ever been presented
at an Institute meeting. Both as a]
literary effort and a treatise on a sub-1
feet of vital Importance the paper was
of a high order. It had one Immediate
result inasmuch as the Institute',
promptly decided to practice conservation at their meetings and the tea I
ind cake which linve nppenred at all'
meetings in the past will be dls-'
pensed with in future.
An instructive debate followed the
reading of the pap<*r aim Mrs. F. B.
Miles, Mrs. Erlckson, Mrs. W. II. Wilson and others, presented a number
nf "War time menus" which it is
hoped to publish at an early date.
A resolution of sympathy and con-
dolence will be sent to the relatives of'
the late Premier Brewster. •
The  Quarterly  Question  Box  was
opened  and   considerable  discussion
ensued.   Members can put questions'
In this box at any time and the box :
Is opened every third month.
One of the questions, raised the ar-!
gument that whooping cough should
be listed as an infectious disease with
a view to overcoming the prevalence1
of this complaint.
There were several questions on Food
Conservation, one enquirer being anxious to know whether the authorities
were setting an example In conserve-'
tion at Mcrrissey Internment Camp?
The general feeling seemed to be that
conservation was not being studied at'
the Camp.
Seven new members joined the Institute.
In addition  to the  usual  musical
items of a  patriotic character, Mrs.
,f,  Thomson   rendered  a  solo  "Joan
of Arc They are Calling You."

President. Secretary
(Ice as Premier was of short duration,
barely fifteen months, he had succeeded in winning the confidence of the
people of the Province by his sincerity and honesty of purpose.
It was undoubtedly the intense and
unvarnished sincerity of his character
which was so evident to all with whom
he came In contact, that was largely
responsible for the success of the Liberal Party In the last election.
Premier Brewster's entrance Into
politics was In response to a sense of
duly rather than a desire for tlie emoluments of political prominence. The
man did not seek the office-—the office
sought the man and it was his high
sense of duty and his steadfastness of
purpose in fulfilling it that undoubtedly undermined his constitution and.
prevented him from overcoming the
attack of illness which caused his
death, so it may be said of him as of
any soldier, that he gave his life for
Ids country and the Province is the
poorer in the passing.
It ls men of his calibre that we can
111 afford to lose in tbe political life
of the Province.
The deepest sympathy of all will be
extended to tho sorrowing members of
his family.
and the world crying out for increase.

homes to ihe time of their return at

Mr. C. Nelson, member for Slocnti,
explained the difficulties the mining
Industry was laboring under In the
Slocan, owing to the changes made by
the smelter at Trail that shut out almost the whole of the Slocan—closed
them up as tight as a land slide. -Slo-

Mr. R D. Barrow, member for Chilli wack, who seconded the address,
spoke from the standpoint of a farmer.
He protested against tampering with
the prices of food stuffs. The farmer
did not want the price fixed for his
products. He was willing to sell in
the open market without any interference with the machinery that moved
the product from the farm to the
consumer by the food speculation.
He said there was too much talk
about the potential wealth of the province and too little notice taken of the
fact that we were the heaviest taxed
province in the Dominion. The increase in the production of food stuffs
was occupying a big place in the public eye just now, but suggest ions toward that end were for the most part
impracticable. High wages in cities
had taken away a good deal of farm
labor and Hie problem, which will not
be acute this spring, will be a very
difficult one to solve when the crop
Is ready to be harvested, He said
"indentured coolie labor is nol acceptable to the farmer." The Chinaman
was now too great a competition for
the white farmer. He said, "we are

Editor, Cranbrook Herald:
Sir.—Would you kindly grant me
space in your valuable paper to openly discuss tlie Employment Office
business. I notice we have in town
three men whose specialty is furnishing labor for Mine Operators, Lumber-1
men, etc.; these are the people who!
believe in labor theatrically, but not
praotlcatly, who are ever willing and j
eager to take the dollar from the
lumber-jack nnd the hard rock shoot-!
er. It is my intentions in writing this,
letter to prove the system of buying
a job Is altogether wrong and valueless to tbe community s nd thc state;
It seems strange to Ihe writer that the
Dominion Government can handle the
llt'ge machinery of warfare but
baulks at taking over or handling better methods for the distribution of
labor to our Mines, Mills and Factor-,
iea In such times as these when we
arB led to believe that every man ami
woman should be engaged steadily
In work that is beneficial to the country.
The system In vogue at tha present
of buying a job is disgraceful and out-
is not a man with an ounce of grey
matter who would buy a job; just
ponder it over in your mind, Mr. Reader. There are several camps who will
not hire a man unless he has an employment ticket, therefore it Is plain
to be seen the method of distribution
shipped out every day nnd a man who
was not capable of Working bin", could
handle the job.
The art of furnishing labor by these !
employment sharks is a failure and a
disgrace to an enterprising town like
Cranbrook and sholud be ubaiiiioncd
Immediately. One would think on s-ee-
Iiik: these sharks in tlie company of
lumbermen and mine operators that
they were partners or stock-holders
in the firm of Senrs Roebuck Co.,
In conclusion Mr. Editor, I sincerely hope the time is not far distant
when a- free labor bureau will be at
the disposal of the workers and every
man will be employed at work which
is beneficial to tlie country,
Thanking you. Mr. Editor,
Yours truly

Buying a job would have been practicable 500 years ago but to the average man in the twentieth century in
this age of enlightenment and progression, it is entirely out of date and
should be abandoned immediately. Under a free employment bureau men
would not hesitate In accepting a job
because they would have nothing to
lose and all to gain, but with tbe present system In vogue tlie man hesitates before accepting thc job. sometimes ft Is not represented as it should

A Truck for the Farmer
FARM equipment which will effect a time and labor-
saving, and therefore a money-saving, must be carefully considered by every good farmer now-a-days.
The farm wagon, which for years was the most useful
of all farm equipment, is now being replaced on the best
farms by a sturdy, dependable motor truck. The truck
will haul any farm product—fruit, grain, vegetables,
stock, fertilizer, or wood—around the farm, or to the
town or city many miles distant, in half the time, and
at a much lower cost
The Ford One-Ton truck is a rapid, economical and
very serviceable means of transport. One of these on
your farm will save you weeks 01 time in a single season
and will enable you to pass through a crisis of labor shortage with less difficulty.
The Ford truck is supplied as a chassis only. This permits you to select any of the many body styles especially
designed for the Ford truck and already on the market.
Thus you can mount the one which suits your individual
