Meeting of
Medical Men
St. Eugene Hospital and Staff
Highly Complimented by
Visiting Specialists
It would doubtless be safe lo say
that no more important event hus
ever occurred so far as the general
interest of the citizens of Cranbrook
and district is concerned, than the
meeting of medical men which convened here on Saturday last. Its
success was beyond expectations and
should be gratifying to those re
sponsible therefore, to whom also
much credit is due. The meeting as
announced in these columns last week
was held under the joint uuspiees of
the Canadian Medical Association
and the B.C. Medicul Association,
and was similar in charncter to others
that are carried on in conjunction
with the various provincial associations throughout Canada, the work
being made possible through the gen
erosity of the Sun Life Insurance
Association, who made a grant of
$30,000 for the defraying of the ex.
penses in connection with the tours,
During the year 150 speakers have
been sent out, und at all points the
visiting men have given addresses of
interest to the medical men, as well
as at some places addressed the public generally, while at all points have
b0en available for consultation in
all obscure cases, thereby affording
definite help to the public.
The visiting specialists were Dr.
D. S. McKay, of Winnipeg, Gynaecology; Dr. B. J. Brondson, of Winnipeg, Orthopedic Surgery; and Dr.
D. Nicholson, of Winnipeg, Laboratory Methods. All these gentlemen
are connected with the University of
Manitoba and the Winnipeg General
Accompanying the doctors on their
British Columbia trip, is Dr. H. H.
Murphy, immedinte past-president of
the British Columbia Medical Association, who is taking the place of
Dr. J. H. MaeDermot, of Vancouver, president elect of the same association.
On their arrival at noon luncheon
was tendered to the visiting doctors
at the Cranbrook Hotel, their host
being Dr. F. W. Green. The clinical
meetings were held at the St. Kugene
hospital, all the visitors being delighted with the institution, and commented favorably on thfl complete
equipment, the efficient staff and the
excellent charncter of the work done.
Dr. Nicholson spoke especially of the
character of the work being accomplished in the laboratory by Sister
Snphonia, while Miss Piedcrieks, who
has recently returned from taking
up special work In X-Ray in OhlcagO,
was nlso complimented by the doctors
for her excellent work in the X-Ray
department, it being much appreciat
ed. All the visiting physicians were
much enthused with the general excellence of tho hospital, and fell tbat
such a standing could only be secured
and maintained through the Sisters
of  Providence
Dr. Brandson, gn the management
of   acute   ami   chronic   appendicitis,
dealt especially with the management
(Continued   of   Page   Four)
For the second time within a week
the uncertainty of life was brought
home   lo   lho   citizens   of   Cranbrook
when it was learned ibis morning thai
Mrs. Santo, beloved wife of our fellow citizen, Mr. W. s, Snnto, had
passed away at I 1 p.m., the night
previous, at the St. Kugene Hospital
To many this will be possibly the first
Intimation that the deceased lady had
even been indisposed, as when w
last published, (he late Mrs. Sant
was to all purposes in good health.
lt appears that Monday morning
last Mr. Santo's daughter had arisen
ami gone tii early church service.
Mrs. Santo, contrary to her customary habit, did not accompany her.
Later, when Miss Santo returned, it
was noted that Mrs. Santo was not
up, and on going into her room it
was found that she could not be roused. On medical aid being summoned,
it was found that something bad
caused paralysis of the side of the
body, it being later determined that
a hemorrhage of the brain hail taken
place. Mrs. Santo was immediately
removed to the hospital, where all
that could be done for her was anxiously carried out, but it was only too
apparent that the malady with which
she was seized would prove fatal.
With her husband and daughter by
her side, she passed to her reward
an hour before midnight last evening.
To the bereaved husband and
daughter the sympathy of the entire
community is being poured forth this
morniiijr as it learned the sad news
of her taking off. All who knew her
testify to her sterling character and
her devotion to her home and family,
the love between mother and daughter was a bye-word to many.
There are many who will miss tbe
help of Mrs. Santo, who, without
blaze of trumpets, was ever on the
alert to help in some way those whom
she thought needed her assistance.
In the Catholic Church, of which she
was a faithful worker, her place will
be hard to fill. In the neighborhood
n which she lived her presence will
bc  missed.
The late Mrs. Santo was born in
Eric, Pa., Annie Gnlvin being her
maiden name.    With Mr. Santo she
mo to this district iu 1807, nnd
lived in Steele, Inter going to Sand
Point, 36 miles below Steele at tbe
junction of the Crow's Nest trail and
the Kootenay River.
Besides her sorrowing husband and
daughter, she is survived by but one
ister, Mrs. Wm. Murray, of Jamestown,  NY,
The Herald joins with the many
friends whose sympathy is extended
Mr. Santo and his daughter in
their hour of sad bereavement.

As we (jo to press we learn with I
regret  of  the   sudden   passing  thi.s!
rning at 8,80 of Mr. Fred G. Col-1
Hns, credit manager of the Western
Grocers of this city. The eircum-l
stances in connection with his death
e extremely snd. Going to work in
his usual active, cheery lAanner, lie
was passing the office of the Cranbrook Courier when, without a second's warning, he was seen to swoon
and fell to tho ground in a daued!
manner. The cause of his collapse
was at once evident, a sudden rush i
of blood from the mouth indicating
only too plainly thut a hemmorhage}
had taken place. An ambulance nasi
at once summoned and he was remov-l
to the hospital, but died either before or on entry. The sympathy ofj
the entire community is extended to
Mrs. Collins in her sad bereavement.
Mr. Collin.- has been in the employ
of ihe Western Grocers and a resi-
.Icii of Cranbrook for the past three!
yenrs, coming to tbis city from Cal-J
gary, where he had been in business
for nbout four or five yenrs, previous
to which time he had been a resident
of the Okanagan for about one year.
Mr. Collin's home was in Collin's
Cove, Burin, Newfoundland.
Besides Mrs. Collins, who is a native of Truro, N.S,, sister? and brothels, ami other relatives, of the deceased man survive him. There were
ihi children.
Mr. Collins was ji man of sterling
character ami one whom Cranbrook

and preswnt secretary of same, also
a member of the board of stewards
of the United Church.

the ceremony, the newly-wed couple,
with their immediate families and a
few friends, motored t<> Windermere,
where the wedding breakfast and reception was held al the home of the
bride. After the usual congratulations and toasts, lho happy couple
left by motor for Banff and Calgary,
where the honeymoon will he spent.
On their return they will take up
their residence in Athalmer. Miss
Webster's wedding makes the fifth
one in tbis district since May of this
year, and tbe noticeable feature was
the attendance of the other four
brides of lho summer at her marriage.

The regular services of the Baptist Crurch were resumed on Sunday
after the conclusion of the vesy happy summer holiday arrangement. It
was a unique occasion in thnt it marked the beginning of the ministry of
the new pastor, Rev. V. II. MncNeill,
who came from Ontario to take up
the work recently laid down by Hev.
W. T. Tapscott.
The services were well attended
both morning and evening. The new
pastor took for his morning's text,
Romans 1:10: "For 1 am not ashamed
of the gospel of Jesus Christ, for it
is the power of God unto salvation to
everyone who bulieves." Ho said in
his introduction that he was not
ashamed of his profession, the ministry ; that he was not ashamed of
his people, the Baptists; that he was
not ashamed of tbe gospel of Jesus
Christ, because it was the one power
which could change men's lives and
save their souls from death.
In the evening Rev. MncNeill
spoke on "The Challenge of the
Church," "The task before the

said Gyros should be thankful, pleased and ready to pay honor to one
who hail done much for Gyro, Long
before Gyro was known in the Kootenays, almo.-t before it was known
on the Pacific coast, he was known

The Gyro organization consisted of
young men who were trying to get
somewhere in tlie world by absolutely
their own effort*, Tiley wore not begging assistance, but they were trying
to establish true friendship throughout Canada and tin- United Slates oil
a basis hitherto unknown to men.
Gyro was becoming a world force,
Mr. Lougheed averted, it ua.- permeating the atmosphere, establishing
friendship. "Gyro does mean friendship," he emphasized.
Next to the extension policy, Gyro

The Harvest Festival Sale in the
Salvation Army Gall, on Monday
night of this week, went oil' very
successfully, despite the fact that the
cold weather of late had made it
more difficult to secure vegetables
and   fruits   for   the   sale.
The display was very tastefully
arranged, and the articles for sale
were many and varied, rallying from
tt pair of boots to a joint of meat.
Though tlie vegetable display may
not have been as large as at previous
sales, the showing of fruit was well
Up  to  standard.
About the middle of the sale a halt
was called while refreshments were
served and in order to dive the auctioneer time to secure his second

the goods.

ami besides keeping tbe crowd in
fits of laughter with his remarks, he
certainly knew how to keep the

to  that   of previous years.

those wbo donated various things for

The funreal, which took place from
the Presbyterian Church un Sunday
indicated the esteem in which the deceased man was held, it requiring
thirty cars to convey the relatives and
friends to the graveside. The service at the church was conducted by
the K.-v. M. S. Blackburn, who in an
appropriate address referred to tbe
kindly character of the deceased. He
referred to the fact that while he
bad only become more intimately acquainted with the late Mi. Huward
recently, be had found him tu be one
of a cheerful disposition, and admired the quality in him which permitted
him only to have a good word to say
about anyone
On all .-ides was heard the many
xprcssiuns of regret of tho passing

of a hard-time affair, und both first
prizes were carried off by Wnrdner
contestants. Miss Teresu Helman
carried off tlie ladies' prize in a gown
designed aboul thirty years ago, with
a high, nine-Inch waist and flowing
skirts, which were u decided contrast
to those of knee-length today. The
gown was, of course, liberally decoruted with patches. John Moore,

to be a worh of an, and which would

accoutrements, Mr. Moon? wus
awarded a set of pipes and tobacco.

Recollections of Octogenarian i!
Reminiscences of John Fl ngal Smith, of this city* M
Recorded by Himself.
Rrd   River   Expedition
lt is a far cry from Coomnssie to
Port Carry, hut these two places
mark a milestone in,, the successful
career of Sir Gamcn Wolseley. The
latter shewed the tenncity of pur-
pose and the intrepidity of conduct
lhat the several forces on both occasions displayed. There i.« too little
attention, it seems, at the present
time given to the Red River expedition and the momentous result one
wny or tho othei' towards the existence of the Dominion of Canada.
Remembering that period well, 1
shall nevertheless follow the account
of the expedition as given in Blackwood's magazine of December, 1870.
"A narrative of the Red River Expedition, by an officer of the expeditionary   force:—
"Whilst t wo great powers were
preparing for that fearful war which
is now devastating the province? of
Prance, a small military expedition
was heing organized on the shores
of Lake Superior for an advance Into the Red River territory. (However be the few who can recall the
devastating of France in 1870, many
well remember the even greater devastation that took pluce in 11H4-I8
hy the same ruthless enemy.) The
writer of this article has just returned from Port Carry, having taken
an active part in the many wild adventures by flood and field encountered during the recent march there,
participating in the excessive toil and
constant exposure entailed upon all
ranks during that curiously interesting operation.
"It had been determined upon in
lhe spring, and the circumstances
which necessitated it may be briefly
described   as  follows:
"After many yeors of fruitless negotiation*; between Canada and the
Hudson's Bay Company, in which
Great Britain acted aB a sort of go-
between or mutual friend, it was arranged in 1869 that the undefined
country officially known as Rupert's
Land, together with all the territorial rights appertaining to the company in North America, should be
transferred to the recently established Dominion uf Canada for the sum
of £.'{00,000. That was practically
the arrangement* but there was a
three-cornered ceremony to he gone
through first, in accordance with
which those vast outlying portions of
the empire were to be legally trans
tarred on paper to Great Britain, and
then made over hy royal proclaim)
tion to the Dominion.
"The country had long been in the
possession uf the Hudson's Bay Com.

overeigu rights over a large proportion of the North American continent. In the. days of that gallant
monarch, oui' geographical knowledge of the western hemisphere waa
but small, and consequently the da*
scription of the limits given over to
their jurisdiction, as recorded in tha
charter, was very vague. It may be
fairly assumed that this uncertainty
■of title was one of the chief causes
why the company had never been d*-
sirous of having its claims inquired
onto before the courts of law.
'In 178:1 a rival trading company
tbe North-Western, was started, and
in 1B12 Lord Selkirk attempted to
form a colony of Sutherland Highlanders on tbe Red River, but the
attempt was little hetter than a failure. (Rev. Dr. McBeth, of Vancouver, a native of the Red River and
a descendant of these Sutherland
Highlanders, has written an excellent
history of this period, which should
be read by every Canadian, imperially
by the Native Sons.!
'/These two companies, the Hudson's Bay and lhe North-Western,
having contended with each other
for the valuable fur trade of the
country to their mutual injury, and
until both were nearly ruined, united in thc year 1888, huth being since
then merged in one under th* ancient title of the Hudson's Bay Company.
"In order to carry on commercial
operations, it was essentia) to have
ut each of their numerous posts scattered over the continent from iu
western shores to where Canadian
civilization, advancing from the Atlantic, was met with. Kacli of these
posts became the nucleus of a small
community. European women were
scarce, nnd communication with Britain was buth difficult and tedioua,
ao men were obliged to content themselves with Indian wives, and a half-
breed population was the result.
"For inland navigation along the
many lakes and rivers that form such
a network over a large proportion ef
our North A meriean possessions,
there is no better man than the
French-Cunudiun voyagcur. A large
number of them have always been
in the Hudson Bay service, which accounts for the fncl of the French
and Knglish languages being spoken
by about equal numbers on the hunks
of Red River. The language of the
voyagei-ir clnss, no matter from what
race he mny have sprung, has long
heen French, anil the officers of the
company, speaking both languagea,
have alwuys found it simpler tu apeak
French than to take any trouble ta

ONE ni the surprises in thc personnel of the reconstructed Liberal government is the left-
handed promotion iur Dr. King, thc East Konu-iinv
member. He goes to Ottawa us lhc only accredited
representative ot the party in B.C., and n was
iliuught that he would have at least been given hack
his former portfolio as minister of public works.
This province ha- a future that no petty politicians
ui either party could do inure than hinder for a short
lum-, aud a is recognized that in tin- scheme ol
legitimate development public works of various
kinds must play an important part. I'or ihis reason
thc appointment ui l>r. King t" that portfolio four
years ago was considered in the light of a personal
recognition of his work iu the provincial sphere, ami
alsu a tangible acknowledgement of the outstanding
need til* the province in a political way. This is the
view thai was propounded from the platform on
Dr. King's behalf.
What, then, is lo be thought ui the relegation

are few professions that can respond in so many
different ways tn the variations in personality as
newspaper work, still there are certain basic conditions to which every publisher, large or small, has
to measure np. and there provide a common ground
upon which all may meet.
What is the reason fur the change? It may
he lor either one ur two reasons, however, it came
about. Dr. King was nut aide to deliver this province to the Liberal leader hound hand aud foot, and
redeemed for the cause, B.C, even slipped farther
back in the eyes of the Liberal leaders. Perhaps
some blame for this state of alTairs is not attached
to Dr. King, who, it was said in tiie last campaign,
wus tlie director of his party's campaign iu B.C.
Perhaps it is even thought that in the disposition of
the contracts fur the necessary public works in this
province that Dr. King did not follow the course
hest calculated to bring tlie strongest support to
the pnrty.
Another interesting suggestion made is that
the new portfolio, lieing a little less onerous than
his previous duties, mure opportunity will be afforded Dr. King to build up llu* weakened defences of tlie
province with a view to forestalling, if possible, the
collapse of the Liberal provincial government which
now seems imminent.

THE atmosphere in the Coast centres is surcharged with political rumors. Some of these may
Ik; dismissed at once as idle gossip, bill others persist
in all quarters and obviously have more than a
moiety uf truth behind them. One of these i.s that
Premier Oliver is likely to retire before another
provincial election. It seems to In* recognized
everywhere that "Honest Juhn" has lost the grip
on his erstwhile followers, lhat he could never lead
the party to victory in au election in ll.C. The field
is clear so tar from any third party invasion, excepting loi the lew seats tliat labor and independent
candidates may chouse to contest. The handwriting is written nn the wall very plainly, aud that the
Premier is nol overly anxious as to tiie future of the
party is seen very plainly in his tactless handling
of the Point Grey cemetery situation, It is even
said in some quarters that pressure is bcing brought
to bejir to have tiie Premier step down as soon as
Mberla and B.C. weekly publishers, and it was al
once au inspiration and an incentive for better endeavor in the future. There is also some satisfaction in learning that some of the standards of newspaper practice that the Herald has tried to live up
to, even when it has had no encouragement from
surrounding papers, are those which are being consistently followed elsewhere, and have tended towards improved standard.- of journalism in this
province. It seems sometimes like plowing a lone
furrow to he forced to relinquish some business or
loosen hold on otltt's ideal-, and the latter is always
infinitely easier. Conventions of newspapermen are
[ending not only tu standardize the practice-- and
customs uf the profession, but keep constantly before those attending the disire tu live up In the
possibilities there are in the work, and to offset any
feeling of staleness that sometimes creeps into one's
personal experience,
There is further sntisfnclion to he felt that
botli papers under the one management in this dis
trict are well thought of throughout the west, and
that a comparison of conditions in East Kuoteu,
and elsewhere lead to the conclusion that there i-
nu better district anywhere in the province for business condition-, ami that (.'ranbrook and Kimberley
are being exceedingly well served by the services
it> newspapers offer. There are dil'fcrcirnces iu
climate and scenic conditions that give tu sume di--
tricts more plea-ant aspects than nther-. but for
solid prosperity, and prospects based on the prime
sources of wealth in the province, Easl Kootenav
lake-   econd place tu nunc.
The bigger centres have some larges stores,
nmre embracive stocks possibly than Crnnbrook, but
even at lhat the stores of Cranbrook lack nothing
iu service that the bigger concerns are giving.
Moreover, it i- curious tu hear complaints being
made in ihe larger centres ju-t as in the smaller
towns -thai the people will spend their money elsewhere instead of at home it's the same story
wherever one yoes.
Tu better appreciate Cranbrook, gn elsewhere fur a while. It's the best panacea fur discontent, and as a remedy it never fails.

To Dr. Green as convenor, aad

district shows lhat they are wide

at future meetings of ihe tour the

If you have not heen in a dental

new tangled wall telephone set—
that's whnt we were when we had occasion to go into Mr. 1'Yrgie's office
the i,i her day. and saw what
looked like a phone set with spider-
like legs holding out the mouthpiece.
Wondering whnt it might really he,
we made enquiries, only to find tliat
it was ,-i new piece of apparatus installed by tin* doctor for the making
nf his own  X-Rny plates.
The new apparatus is one that will

The plates are developed on the premises, obviating any long waits.
The machine is a Victor model

tisl's X-Rny machine, which is absolutely electrically safe; whicli can be
handled either by the operator or the
patient with complete immunity from
shock, even while un exposure is be-
Ing made; which requires no floor

than any X-Rny machine hitherto
produced; it avoids lhe use of all
external high tension wires, and
through it dental X-Ray service can
be rendered with greater efficiency
than was possible heretofore.
Crnnbrook has gained notoriety fur
and w de from the recent episode,
and all llu* way from Montreal and
Toronto tn Vancouver and south all
through lhe United States, the story
of ihe elephants running at large
has heen heralded. Tlie following
taken from a recent issue of the Vancouver Province tells of tho christening of "t'nuibroijk Ed" ns recorded
last week in lliese columns. Il is
taken from the "Odd Angle" feature
by  I'.  W.  I.uce.
"Cranbrook has mnde its final hid
I'or publicity with the kind cooperation of the Sells-Floto circus.
The last of the escaped elephants has
been recaptured and shipped south
after having beon given n new name
with due aud proper ceremony.
Henceforth Chnrloy Ed is to be
known as Cranbrook Ed, as a compli-
to the prolific nature of u district where nn elephant can be lost
n a field of alfalfa for two mouths,
"The christening took placo on
Main Street, with Mayor T. M. Roberts officiating from a safe distance,
in the presence of on admiring crowd
that respectfully refrained from pressing too close.    The general impres-
II seemed to be that this was the
biggest baby ever christened in Cranbrook, hul it must be remembered
lhat Charley Ed wns four years old
it lhe time he became Crnnbrook Ed.
This is younger for an elephant thnn
when    invidious   comparisons    were
"As a rule elephants are Baptists.
They are subjected to total immersion at their christening, but Mayor
Roberts had some doubts as to his
nbility to push the pachyderm under
water against his will. Anyway, ns
there seemed to be some difficulty
about setting up a tank large enough
for the job in the middle of Main
Street, Charley Ed obligingly abandoned the faith of his fathers, for
the time being.
"The godparents were Spot Griffith
and Charles Morgan, of the Sells-
Floto organization, and they were
emphatic in their assurance that Iheir
charge would he a model of perfect
behavior all the days of his life. Mr.
Griffith was becomingly dressed iu
splints from ihe right shoulder down,
while Mr. Morgan iiad a number of
ribs in an attractive plaster cast,
these bolng outward and visible signs
of gentlo caresses received when the
stray elephant welcomed thoni in his
field of alfalfa.
"As is usual, this buby didn't know
what, was goinjr to happen to lum.
bul wus sun* be wasn't going to like
it one little bit, Ile bawled, and tor
blocks around windows and teeth
rattled. However, his experienced
guardians quieted him down with a
gentle rocking, one good-sisjoci rock
at u time on the flanks.
"Cranbrook is a 'dry' town, but
the mayor is a forehanded gentleman.
Ever since 1916 he had held in reserve n quart bottle of champagne
so as to be ready to christen an elephant on Main Street whenever called upon. He had also spent many
weary nights looking up authorities
on ceremonies of this nature, so that
he wns quite prepared to argue tbe
point when it was proposed that he
should straddle the elephant's neck
and crack the bottle over his skull,
at the same time explaining to Cranbrook Ed that there was no malice
in his method.
"Mayor Roberts' style, though a
decided novelty In christenings, is
strongly recommended to all public
men who may have to officiate under
similar conditions. The chief magistrate stood afar off on one foot,
whirled the bottle around his head
three times, shouted 'Attaboy, Cranbrook Ed!' in a loud voice, then let
drive with unerring aim. It was the
most sizzling hit ever seen in the
Kootenays, and the home run that
followed broke all records ami several gates.
"'I had been practicing throwing
at the side of a barn for a week,'
explained the mayor, later, when he
had got his second wind, 'and I was
sure I could not miss un elephant.
The only question was whether lhc
elephant would miss me.'
"The gifts of the godparents to
the baby consisted of an elegant
pair of wrought iron ankle bracelet
weighing a hundred pounds, and i
steel poud, guaranteed to tlckl*
through the toughest hide."
October ISth and Uth have been
selected as the dates for lhe district
Farmers' Institute convention of the
East Kootenay. This is a convention
at which delegates are generally present from all the Farmers' Institutes
for the East Kootenay district and a
convention where farmers' problems
will be discussed by farmers from
throughout the district. Last year
some twenty problems were brought
before the contention, shaped into the
form of resolutions to be discussed at
the advisory board meeting the time
of the sitting of the House,
It is hoped that everyone will
keep these dates in mind and if possible attend some or all of the meeting. In next week's papers will appear program of the convention which
will likely last about two days.

Provincial Convention To Be
Held Very Shortly
Is Announcement
Previous to the call for Parliament
to convene, n meeting of Conservative members and senators from British Columbia in the provincial and
Dominion houses, nnd the executive
of the British Columbia Conservative
Association, will be held to set tbe
date for a convention of British Columbia Conservatives to soloct a provincial leader.
This is tbe announcement of Mr.
it. I.. Maitland, president of tbe B.C.
association* with whom rests the responsibility for culling the executive
into conference with the provincial
and federul  members.
Several mouths ago a meeting of
the executive wns held while the Dominion House was ia session. At thnt
gathering it wus decided u convention should be held at an early date.
it was further decided thnt it would
not be advisable to hold it until the
Dominion aud provincial members
and senators had been consulted as
to the date.
The sudden dissolution of thc
Mouse of Commons, followed by the
Dominion elections, interfered with
this meeting. Now that these are
out of the way, it will be held. This
gathering will set the date of the
convention, which is likely to be in
tbe early part of the new year.
In the meantime, rumor is busy
with possibilities for the provincial
leadership. Prior to the elections,
the name of Hon. Dr. S. F. Tolmie,
minister of agriculture, was mentioned for the honor. Since the election,
which left the minister in the opposition, the Tolmie boom has been
revived, and from every indication,
his friends will put up a strong fight
for him in the convention,
The name of Mr. \V. J. Bowser,
K.C, former premier, and Conservative stalwart who did effective work
in the recent election, will also be
presented to the convention.
The sweeping victory of Mr. Leon
J. Ladner in the last three federal
contests has drawn attention to his
capabilities, and a number of his
friends regard him us a coming man
in provincial affairs.
The Provincial Party, led by Gen.
A. D. McRae in the lust provincial
elections, has been practically disbanded. Most of tbe members of
that party were former Conservatives
who will lie a factor in helping to
select a new Conservative lender. It
is understood that they are agreed to
stand by the decision of the convention. They will undoubtedly sec
[representation at tlie gathering
through the various Conservative
bodies with which they have since
become associated.
Mr. II. II. Pooley, leader of the"
Conservative pnrty in tbe Legislature,
may permit bis nomination lo go before the convention, Mr, Pooley lias
informed his associates on several occasions that he stands ready to do the
bidding of the majority in his party.
Coast Conservatives, flushed with
tin- federal victory iu British Columbia, are eager to hnve tbe provincial
organisation perfected. While anxious to have the question of provincial leadership settled, thoy are moving very cautiously.
Once the executive mooting is held,
however, and the date of the convention announced, they may bo expect-:
ed to make knuwn tht'ir views. Por
tho moment they are more disposed
to keep bilrniiiny with the rank and

In 1925 when no other could be
persuaded to stage a fur display at
Wembley aftre the disastrous failure
of the one financed by tho British
Fur Trade in the preceding year,
Mr. Munro volunteered to fill the gap
in the world's biggest exhibition
with the result that not only was the
venture a financial success but he
was accorded such a volume of favorable advertising as nothing but a
Wembley exhibit could have secured
in the same apace of time. From
Wembley Mr. Munro sent an exhibit
to the New Zealand and South Seas
International Exhibition at Duncdin,
N.Z., where he secured the grand
diploma of merit, (first class), two
gold medals and two silver medals,
besides a trade connection which already is proving of invaluable assistance in his business. Another exhibit was sent with the travelling

partner, Ole Larson, is developing
a vory promising Bilvcr-lend property
near Revelstoke, which in connection
with the recent exhibit which won
for the Revelstoke-Lardeau district
nt the New Westminster fair first
prize, was favorably commented upon
in a subsequent issue of the Western
Canada Mining Journal. In his home
town he is quite prominent in business and social activities, being president of the Canadian Legion, Vice-
President of the Board of Trade, and
secretary to the Board of Directors
of the Y.M.C.A.
From Cranbrook he motored
through the Crow's Nest into Alberta
and expects to be back in Revelstoke

November, after his present trip

travel and displays at over twenty

The merchant's rolrttiona to his
home town paper are supposed to
be those of an advertiser. Thai is a
narrow view. The homq town paper
is an institution. Thc merchant can
no more escape ils influence than
anybody else in the community, whether he  advertises  iu   it  or  not.
'Yet, as a consistent advertiser, his
relations with the local newspaper become definitely constructive. He becomes n part of this institution without which no community can express
itself. Whatever its merits or demerits, the home town paper is an
expression of the community. Literally, it is the "Voice of the People"
in a sense that cannot hold true for
any other medium.
Thi.s institution keeps friends in
touch with friends. To the best of
its ability it answers Who, What,
When, Where, How and Why'.' It
brings the individual out of himself.
It speaks the local language. It interprets community life. Week by
woek it tells the story of tlie town
and country.
Most of us aro* so accustomed to
the home town paper that we take
it as a matter of course. If we think
anything about it at all. wc think of
its deficiencies. These ate presenl
largely because it is run by fallible
human beings. The wonder about
the home town paper is that it contains sn few mistakes, not so many.
To the merchants, especially, the
home town paper is an opportunity.
His business, too, is a local institution. Unless it finds some kind of
expression iu the home town paper,
both the paper and the business have-
to an important extent failed to function. Each is affected somewhat by
every successive failure in this respect.
U does not cost a greal deal of
money to advertise in the local pa
per. Most advertisers arc over
judicious rather than extravagant
it is the continual message that
counts most. Sporadic advert
ments now and then arc of doubtful
value. Perhaps they arc better than
no advertisement at all. Every advertisement placed by a business
house should blend into every other
advertisement it places, The merchants should think in terms of campaign, rather than iii terms of cam-

T  iving  up  to its  title  as  the  "Garden   Railway",
thousands of trees, shrubs and perenlals were
shipped out over the whole Canadian Pacific Railway
system early in May this year. These included
willows, poplars, lilac, sphea, honeysuckle, pyringa,
weiglia, carragana, hydrangea, and many others.
The perenlala include roses of the climber and rambling variety nnd of all shades of color, tiger lilies,
Iceland poppies, aquilegia, dianthus, Sweet William,
pyrethrum, delphlneum.
Every year the floral committee of the C.P.R.
hn« the stupendous task of supplying the seeds, trees,
shrubs and plants to thousands of stations from
■Saint John to Victoria. Bulbs are supplied and
planted in the fall, rearing their jaunty heads with
the melting of the snows in the spring.
The seeds are propagated under glass by experienced gardeners with a view to bring transplanted
when raised, In addition the committee sends out
many thousands of seed packets to station agents
and also for use in section foremen's gardens, bunk-
hous-s and around shops. Enormous quantities of
bedding stock are also provided and among these are
fWtnlumi, carinas, asters, pausiea, salvias, peLuolu,
marigolds, atirrhinum, phlox, koehfas, zinnias, verbenas and alyssum.
Railway gardening was introduced in Canada by
the Canadian Pacific Railway about thirty-five years
ago. The majority of the gardens are laid out and
looked after by employees of the system. Locomotive
firemen, signal towermerf, watchmen, bunkhouse attendants and others take a great interest in the
gardens with the help of horticulturists. Every employee is alive to the importance and the pleasure of
making the railway stations blossom. Each one of
them is filled with a healthy sense of emulation and
the desire to make his own garden the beauty spot of
the railway. The men treat the whole plan as a
hobby. All make the supreme yearly effort to win
the general manager's cup, a worthy trophy emblematic of the best floral display along C.P.R. tracks.
But the prizes are not limited to this. Every general superintendent offers a prize for his own district,
each superintendent gives one for his division and
every roadmaster offers one for his sub-division.

converted into vegetable-railing grounds and produced large quaitiUM mt food supplies for the men

The Pilchards of the Pacific
The salmon is about to find a keen
rival for supremacy in the British
Columbia fishing industry in the
opinion of John Uabcock, assistant
ommlBstoner of fisheries for tlie
Province. During the past year the
pilchard has advanced to a position
of great Importance, The one subject
of conversation all alonij tlie coast
irom Itarkley to Quatsino is pilchards.
During tlie past winter and spring
fourteen new plants have been constructed, most uf which are in a position to operate as soon as the pilchards strike the coast. Only three
plants operated last year. The
whaling plant at Cachelot, Kyuquot
Sound, will hereafter be operated as a
pilchard reduction plant. The same
with thc old whaling station at
Set-hurt. Upwards of SU.OOO.OUU will
be spent to remodel the old cannery at
Ucuelet where pilchards will be bandied.
Pilchards are on an average larger
than herrings and are rich in oil which
is used in making uleomargarine,
fine soups and varnish. This year the
oil will be shipped in bulk, and the
Canadian Pacific vessels have been
equipped with great tanka for its
transportation. The above photograph shows the S.S. Princess Una,
berthed at the C.P.R. pier at Vancouver where she arrived with the
first cargo of pilchard oil of the season.
