THK NEW YEAR.
Tin- Herald's wish to every one   of
ita readers is "May health and happiness dwell in ymir home iind     tho
nuMen      prospect    for a   hriglit   New
Vear     pan   out     fat beyond     vuur
highest     hopes und    widest expectations.*'    The nld \ear has gone,  and
wilh it,     Its   joys   and its   troubles
Imt  ''let    the   dead    past bury     ils
dead."        There     i.s      ;■     new year
ahead and according to    the old saying -'There's    luck   in ..d^l numbers,'"
1H0II sh..uld be   no exception to   tbfi
rule,     The    year I90K   has been, at-
Ier all,     a    Rood one tor Cranbrook
and  Kast. Kootenav.     In spite of the
depression,   so called,   the growth   of
the cily and the district, has by    no
means   lieen    impeded.      Everything
has gone ahead with the usual steady
advancement, which has always chnr-
aeteii/.ed  this    part        uf  the    country.    Nu boom, iuu steady and substantial growth.     The dawn of liioo
breaks   forth with    every  indication
i,i stilt greater tiling-     As the  sun
rises tomorrow    morning, over     the
Itocky Mountains   and shines    down
the valley of   the Kootenay river he
will  be a harbinger ot good     things
to come.    The Kootenav Central will
be built    Mils year.       This will     be
good New Year's news   to many
the people   of      the district.
Sullivan    mine and   the smeller
Marysville    wiil, almost      to
certainty, lie     running early in
year.     These two things alone
siillicient    to make       the   peopl
. East Koutenay glad.    Hut   this    is
not all.     1!I0!I   will see lurther    development,   alotfg   the    lines ot mining, lumbering and     agriculture.     It
is true     lhat the     lumber interests
have bad   somewhat  of a set     back
during VMM but   even   at   that, the
indications   for   thc coining year are
the best.     The splendid crops in Allierta anil Saskatchewan will make a
market for the product uf the woods
which has never heen cxcelhHl in the
history of    the province.     The   demand for land   fur fruit growing and
farming purposes still   continues   tu
increase    day    by day, so much so,
in fact, that   by this time next year
it is   sate lo predict   that there "will
Ity many small tracts taken    up and
cultivate!      As tor     the city     itr
sell.      Cranbrook has grown   during
1%»    and  grown    along substantial
lines.     Nol ii   building bus been puv
up that   was not needed, not a building has been     erected    as n speculative   investment.        In   tact    Cranbrook's     srowth   during      the past
year has   been a repetition   of    the
pust ten years, which means, a steady
growth without a boom.    Tbe Herald
has had to increase its plant   during
the year to a     very considerable extent tu meet   tbe demand of increased business   and   as 1 !*0U looms   up
it bas   all   the earmarks ot another
increase in the business ol the paper,
it will bt    the   aim of    tbe Herald
tu be a little   ahead    of the growth
'and development   ol    the country .it
all l itnes.     A Happy New Year.
It was plainly sh<.wu at tbe meeting last night that the citv council
are heartily iD favor ol better
school facilities, tbat they favor a
money by-law for that puroose and
lhat they will du what they can
to give ihe city a first-class building,
.iii-l at the same time watch aitei
the interests of the taxpayers
Tbe Laurier government bas been
investigating the marine muddle and
as ,i result a number ol officials are
lousing their beads. Let the kooiI
work go on and wherever a graftal
c.in be found, be he Conservative
or Liberal, hit him goud and ban).
That is the only way to maintain ..
decent ..mi hones I governmenl
The Herald desires al tbis time
to thank the Cranbrook flro depart"
meal fur then- good wotk during thc
past year and extends to all of the
members its   best wishes lor 1909,
The merchants of Cranbrook have
enjoyed a verv good trade limine the
holidays.
We are ul*d to know that there has
been nu suffering cm account of
iioverlv in Cranbrook the past vear.
When one stops to think 0t the
poverty in the cities it really seems
too __ni.il to believe that one lives In
a community where there is nothing
nf the kind, Surely Cranhrnob is d
glorious town tu live in, where universal prosperity prevails nnd poverty
is unkown.
Let us all Iry and make the
year I WW a good one, a prosperous
oie and a happy one.
President Roosevelt would have

The waler wagon will start oul
ut tt o'clock uu Friday morning with
a full Uad ul passengers.     It   would
bu impossible tor any human being
to estimate the number ol passengers who will bo on the wagon at
tbe end of a week's time.
Tbe employes of that excellent-
paper, the Medicine Hat News, gave
Mr. Pointer, the manager, and the
directors ol the company a dinner
on tin- J-n«l ol this month. The affair was a most enjoyable one, as
well as being something entirely new
in tlif way ol newspaper celebrations.
Herald has always opposed
iblitlg in Cranbrook and wc want
..-e more that wherever a
lc game is being run it should
topped. More good men go to

Uie Herald     fullv appreciates     tbe
inj  kind words received during the
holiday     season   and    will endeavor
luring    the c,,ming vear    tu     make
ho pnper   better than ever before.
The C.I'.K. are goine to put on new
ibservation ears for the beneiit of
ravcllers <>n their line through the
nuitiitalns, It is about time that
this change was bolng made, as the
iTvation ears that have been in
were actually unlit lor carrying
cattle let alone human being);.
Prince  Uupert is growing-       The
e department of    that city     have
iiiven their first annual ball.
Wo want lo make the Herald better next year in every way. If vou
.vere the editor of the Herald what
Aoiild you do along these lines?
We ,would lie pleased to hear from
myotic and receive expressions of
-minimi. Don't be afraid to criticise
is because we are used to it.
Hon I swear off this New Year's,
lust quit.
No town has ever had a better
-.iiiiicil than Cranbrook Ior thc past
eat. The mayor and thc members
d the council have handled the business of the municipality the same as
they would handle their own affairs
and in cousei|ui'nce thc taxpayers
of i'h» lown have received the beneiit. During the last year the council have not made one serious error and that is a record that
they have reason to be proud of. Thc
Herald trusts that the entire council may be returned liy acclamation,
it believes that this is a compliment   that   that, body deserves.
1000 will be a greater year in
Die history of Canada than any before. He optimistic. Canada is a
great country and the banana belt
is the best part of it. East Kootenny    is all   right.
Santa Clans did not forget the
lumbermen uf East Kuotenay. He
sent snow for Christmas.
A happy new year to all.
One of the hest Christinas erect-
miis received by the Herald editor
was from an old friend who spends
most of his time in the lumber
1 amps. Sleeting us the dav before
Christmas, he said. "Old Man, 1
want io wish you a merry Christmas for myself and a lot ol the
boys in the camps, who have spent
many an enjoyable hour ihe past year
t a-lina the lleralil alter we have
finished mir day's work. Vou have
■.'.i ii n ,i [...pet that we like to
read, and 1 want J'uU to know that
ive appreciate it-" Oood fur the
Inn ; ia th.- camps, and we want
them to know thai during the coming year we propose to make ihe
Herald still better, more entertaining
ml moit- desirable in every way,
Aud we want to take this occasion
to wish every one. of those, who, by
Iheir work in thc camps, contribute
so much I,, the prosperity of the
district and Cranbrook a happy and
prosperous new year.
Keep on boosting Cranbrook, You
hive nothing to loose and maj be a
winner by so doin '

The conviction (,f Oompers. Milchi'H
nul Morrison by n Washington judge
md the sentencing ,-,f these gentlemen fur une year, eight and six
month'' respectively for violating an
BJtmction of the courts, is an outrage. If the law was carried out
n the same manner ngninst tbe heads
u corporations who havo been vlolat-
ng Injunctions abd the statutes for
ears, perhaps there would be no
eas.iii foi a protest. Hut when the
■otiits are maintained for thc benefit
if the corporations and against the
laboring man it is time that a
halt should be called. There is no
eason why these leaders of labor
rganidations should go to jail when
hading financiers are allowed to go
*t t free after breaking nearly
even law on lhe statute books.
Whai the people in the United
Stales nnd Canada want is fair play.
Peck   MacSwain   recently   responded to a   toast in Grand   Forks
t a Conservative banquet.    Peck is
Liberal hut at    thc   same   time
be is a versatile cuss.
There is a war on at Revelstoke
between the mayor and the police
ommissioners, and a.s a result the
lid has been placed on tho town in a
most emphatic manner. II the truth
were known it would probably show
that the ntno of politics ti back
uf all    ihe trouble. '■'*'

TERRIBLE LOSS OF LIFE
Home, Dec. 29.—South Italy aad
the Island ot Sicily bave been visited by an akpalling calamity, the
extent ol which cannot yet be grasped. An earthquake yesterday morn-
InK wrecked city alter city, aad obliterated smaller towns and villages
without number. Tonight a tidal
wave swekt along the Straits ot
Messina, and added to the horror,
drowning tho people in their helplessness and panic.
! Fire came to complete tho work ot
I destruction. Flro broke out in the
devastated cities, and countless numbers ol wounded men and women with
children were burned to deatk.
< Any adequate estimate ot the total
I losses is yet impossible, but the
Itotna Truhuna places tho number
somewhere between sixty and seventy
* thousand, and the horror and destructive-mess   will probably   exceed
any earthquake slice 1763. Reports
ol heavy loss ol lite are coming in
every hour Irom city and town, and
nearly every village in the stricken
zone, and the story oi its detail has
only begun to be told. The horror
grows us further reports come In.

IIKtULIANE TO BUILD
THEY WILL BUILD A SUBSTANTIAL BUILDINO IN THE

A. E. Phipps, of Calgary, inspector
of the Imperial Bank ot Canada, has
concluded negotiations with V. Hyde
Baker for the purchase of the town-
site office corner of Baker street for
the Imperial Bank >t Canada. II anv
one was so skeptical as to think
tbat Cranbrook is not a eood place
for investment, the fact that such a
financial institution as the Imperial
Bank of Cagada, should purchase two
of the very best corners in the city
should dispell all misgivings.

TRUSTEES VS. COUNCIL
A PUBLIC     MEETING CALLED
TO DISCUSS THE DIFFERENCES.
BOhOol board claim wo should place
this bylaw belore you on January
Mil, and take chances on sill-iu
our debentures at a reasonable price.
We do not think tins is a busmen
way ui doing it. The lirst intimation
wa bad of this nutter coining before
us was on the second day of Ms
month. We Immediately took tbe
mailer up, and instructed our solicitor to ascertain where wa could secure   the money.     We havo had

————————■■■■■■■»■<■«■■■■■■■■■»
Owing tu the fact that tbe city
council iiid nut deem it advisable tu
•.'limply witb tbe request uf thu
school trustees nntl present a by-law
culling for *:in,uiiu lor a new seboul
building on thc llth of inl January
at the tunc ol the regular municipal
election, tbe trustees advertised a
public meeting lor last evening at
tbe Auditorium. Trustees Harvey,
McCallum and Rogers were presenl
aud .Mayor Kink and Aldermen Kyan,
ll.ikei, 1 lender .son and Hunt, aud
about lift)' otber citizens. Mr. Itogers took tbe cbair and briclly stalud
tbe object ol tbe meeting and called
upon Mr. Harvey to state the case
[rom the trustees standpoint. Mr.
Harvey made a statement of the
present school accommodation in
Cranbrook, saying thut there were
six rooms now in use and tbat alter
the lirst of the year another would
be necessary. He stated that tbe
trustees hud asked that a bylaw providing lor a loan ot $50,000 be presented at the time of the regular
election and that Mr. McCallum and
himsell had attended a meeting ol
thc council a week ago Monday
nvenlng and presented their case and
that wbea tbey left the council
chamber it was with tbe positive
conviction that the council intended
to comply with their request. That
night Mr. McCallum had started to
circulate the petition and was surprised to leara that the members ol
tho council had agreed not to sign
it. He did not think that this
looked as if the council favored the
bylaw. He recognized thc need
of good schools and considered it a
most important thing Ior a town.
The school population ol Cranbrook
was growinn rapidly and the trustees wanted to provide tor a ten
room school while they were building so as to meet the demands lur
the present and lor the next tew
years. The total enrollment was
1170 and the average 250 with a seating capacity ol 287. It was figured
that it would take $35,000 to build
an eight room building and S15.000
for a ten room building, and the
trustees were askine lor $50,000,
that they would not have to come
back to the council for an additional
sum. They were anxious not to
lose any more time than was necessary and wanted the by-law presented at the regular election so as to
secure a better expression of opinion
Irom the ratepayers, lt was neccs.
sary to pass the by-law belore the
debentures could be sold. As to the
assessable property in the school
district outside of the municipality
he thought that a grant could be
secured Irom the government in aid
ol the new building hut that would
take time as it might necessitate
special legislation at the next session ot parliament. He did not
think it possible to sell debentures
issued on the installment plan and
that it would be necessary to base
them on the slnUne (uud plan. As
lar as he was concerned if he could
not get along with the council without jangling and squabbini**, he was
ready to resign as he hatl no time
to lose in tbat manner, although he
would state that the council had
always treated the trustees with
every courtesy in all ol their dealings with them. He wanted i si*ool
lhat would bo a credit to the ploei
and was willing to work for such ■:
building and claimed that tbe trustees were responsible for their
actions to the people and that it
was thc duty ot the council to present the by-law when asked.
Mr. McCallum said tbat as Mr.
Harvey had covered the situation so
fully be would not say much and
briefly explained about circulating the
petition.
Citv Solicitor Thompson explained
the attitude of the council from a
legal standpoint and took exceptions
to some of Mr. Harvey's statements,
especially the one that debentures
issued on tbe Installment plan would
not lie saleable, stating that ho had
one uilt-r uf 10(1 cents on the dollar
at 81 per cent which meant* a savins
to the taxpayers ol almul $8,000 and
this was secured hy using caution and
not rushing blindly into the matter.
Mayor Kink was next called and
spoke as follows, and was listebed to
with great interest:
I have listened wjth great interest
to the statements made hy the gentlemen of thc school board, because I
believe tbey havo taken a step in
the right direction in providing bctr
ter school facilities, but am sorry
they take   the   stand    they do    re*
8aiding tbe action of the council.
,'c have not quarrelled with the
school board, lar Itom that, because it is our desire to assist them
all wc can, but believe we should
not go into this matter without any
consideration. We believe any business man contemplating- a new busi-
carcfully, then cost, and then, it he
ncss block would first consider plans
bad not the cash on hand, where he
could get it and at what rate ol
interest, and the most convenient
mode ot repayment. Now, in borrowing large sums ol money, it is
necessary to give security. Our
paper money ii worth absolutely
nothing without the guarantee ol the
Dominion ot Canada. The same applica to our debentures, but. in our
case, we have absolutely nothinng to
pledge tor security ot our debentures,
except our homes and business
blocks. Considering these tacts,
think we should move cautiously In
this matter. While it ls true, according to law, borrowing money lor
school purposes does not afleet our
borrowing power in other matters, lt
undoubtedly docs afleet our standing
when we approach the man that loans
thc cash, because lie will not loan
money on property that Is already
pledged tor practically all It
worth.      The gentlemen    ol
reply already,
very lair une.
wishes us to otter our debentures ai
nut le:,s than Doc. at.tl a 5 per cent
rate ul interest. They slated at a
recent cuuncil meetinf they though!
it would be impossible tu get moro
Our offer is much better than this.
II we sold our d.-brnluri-s at 1*3. ami
a 5 jier cent rate of interest on
'ill years sickin*- luud id.m. it would
require $4361 per year to repav
principle and Interest. They stated
thev thought it would lie impossible
to effect a sale un an installment
plan. We are practically ussunii
we can get lUUc. un    lhe dollar, an,:
-J rate uf interest un the installment plan, which wuuld require
SIM. per year to repay principal
and interest, or a saving over then
plan ul $70*10 lor lhc 20 years.
Another matter to consider is the
Bohcol district lying outside of the
cily lines, in which we can asses*,
only live mills un the duilar lor the
purpose of maintaining schools. We
bave .'on.* into this mnttor, and Imd
that 32/, pet cenl ol the assessable
property lies outside ot the city
lines, anil Irom which tin* provincial
government receives the taxis. We
claim,    therefore,   ihat   the govern-
*nt should assist, to the extent oi
22. per cent of the cost ol the
proposed new school building, and
that we should have a definite understanding wilh the government before we begin operations. The
gentlemen ol the school board claim
wc are trying io block them and
wasting time. Now, I ask you do
yuu consider the school hoard had
much consideration Inr Iho members
I the council ami fur time, when
Ihcy placed this matter before us
at our very last regular meeting in
the year.   1 believe I   bave given you
very fair and reasonable answer for
uur action. Now 1 ask them Ior a
(air and reasonable answer to our inquiry. Why they waited until the
eleventh hour   before approaching us
i  this matter.
Aldermen Hunt and Itynn spo'e
briefly, the latter emphasizing the
fact that the trustees had done
nothing all year in tbe matter
nnd then rushed in at the last icpu-
lar meeting of the council and demanded immediate action. Mr.
Kyan also stated that be was in
favor of a new school building it

Why This Store Has
a Midwinter Sale
There are always practical reasons when this Store has a " Sale," always plain, sensible business reasons for the offering of such
unusual saving chances.   We hold a mid-season sale—
BECAUSE
BECAUSE
BECAUSE
i*
January is a bdwten-scasons month, in which trade is not usually as active as during the other months of the
year. To create a demand for Clothing and Furnishings*, Etc., and bring this month above the average months
prompts us to inaugurate this sale each year.
we are now arranging for our yearly stocktaking, and thc several store departments are determined to clear the
way lor this work in thc easiest, quickest time. This fact alone is sufficient reason for such a sale by a store
this size.   There is no question but what it forces the unusual price reducing on a great part of our slock.
it is the best time of the year lo adjust our stock—to prepare the store for the new season's arrivals, and space for
our purchases must be provided for. For these reasons and these alone is our yearly mid-season sale extensively
prepared for and advertised every January and the buying chances become the greatest for Cranbrook purchasers
during this sale. If
Read our advertisement.   Let it be your shopping guide.   Cut it out and bring It with you.   We want you to see and know that
we have the goods we advertise.
v7e are particular not to overrate, consequently you'll see goods in the store with better eyes than you see them in our advertisement.
Remember : The Low Price Road Leads Straight to Our Store

AN AUTISTIC ENTERTAINMENT.
Tlie 1'olmatier Sistersl wlio appeared at t tit; Auditorium Wednesday of last week
gave one of the most artistic cnter-
ia.ni men ts ever heard in the city.
The opening numbers, a march trom
Double's "1'rince Imperial" and the
overture from Bayman's "Zodiac"
playod by tihO Polniatier Sisters orchestra, at once convinced tlie ami-
ienca that Uiey were about to hear a
cuncurt that was far above the
average. It would be wrong to particularize tin Uie pei lor uia nee of any
of these ladies. Each was so good
that it Would be impossible to say
lhat une was any better than thi;
other. Tho programme was a varied
one nnd iutrodiicod some ul the besl
music and singing ever heard in the
city. Wherever the Polmaticr Sisters go they deserve good houses and
ihu Herald hopes that they will
return early in the New Year aud
give the people of Cranbrnok an opportunity of hearing this excellent
aggregation again.

Great Telephone Development
The Progress of East Kootenay is
Demonstrated by Growth of the
Telephone Lines
From a Small Beginning They Have Grown Into t
Great and Popular System
In tlie issue of the Nelson Daily
News of tbe 3rd inst. an article appears wliich gives an outline ol the
progress ot Cranbrook and its vicinity during the past twelve months.
By some extraordinary oversight no
reference is nude to the Kootenay
Telephone Lines, Ltd., a Cranbroo'.
company, which, formerly under the
name   ot   the    Cranbrook    Electric
iioiiils. With thc new ami improved

Just as soon u thorn experts get
rid ot tbe plague . ot rats in San
Francisco Uiey tnl(bt well turn
their attention to tWs plague ol

W.ll somebody please explain why
it Is that the turn-ace tbat works
beautifully when tbe wealber is
balmy will get balky tbe very first
real cold morning?
instrumental in aiding the building up
ol the lumber industry ln the district by providing a system ot telephonic communication between the
city and all the milling companies
within a circuit ol fifty miles around
us. It ls unnecessary to rcter to the
excellence ot the city service bevond
saying that it compares most favorably with the best provided in tlie
largest centres.
Recently tbo company pushed its
lines north to Wasa, south to Elkmouth. Waldo and to points beyond
almost to the International Boundary
at Oateway. Tbey havo given a
long distance connection with the
local system at Moyie, and havo "
to the credit of their enterprise a
charter Ior the construction ot local
system at Fernie, which is being
rapidly pushed to completion. Fernie
is fast recovering thc place it lost
for tbe moment In tbe disastrous lire
ot Athrust last, and will endure as a
monument of the indomitable pluck of
its people as a more beautiful and
permanent city than it was before
the dreadful visitation which literally
swent It   Irom the cartb.
Tbe company has also purchased the
telephone svstem, charter and rood
will of the Cranbrook Electric Light
company, which operated in Cranbrook and through the Cranlirook
district, snd in addition those uf the
Crows Nest Pass Electric I.iaht &
Power Oniniianr, Ltd.. which operated in the Fernie distiict and has at
nrcsent a inns distance communication extending Irom Michel to Yahk.
For the information of our readers
it may be well to sav that the
Kootenay Telephone Lines, Lid., has
been incorporated under the laws ui
British Columbia, with a canit.il of
S-00,000, divided into 2.000 shares of
.1 par value of MO eaoh. Of this
capital stock it Is now promised
lo place $40,000 on tbe market in
order to provide the necessary lunds
still further to extend the enterprises
ol the comnany. If one were to
'Hike bv thc remarkable success ol
the company in the pnst, the issue referred to ought to be verv readily
assimilated by the niibl-c wilh very
crcat advantage to   the Investors.
Si-ea'ing in general terms, tho
Comnany has now in operation tho
local service in Cranhrook and are
estallln*' a sn!cnd;d svstem In Fernie. In addition they have lines
to Wvclifle. Marvsville, Kimberlev,
Ihe North Star mine, the Sulltvn
mine, and Into all the lumber mills
nd camns between those noin.s
-d Cranbrook. In like manner all
the mills and camns between tbis
citv and Movie are nlaced in touch
with tbe center and so with Fort
Steele. Wasa. ElVmnnih and Waldo.
Taking Cranbrook as the center, the
country to the north, south, west
and east is covered tor some lortv
tu fifty miles.
It Is now the intention ol the enm-
niv to reach out and put all the
places mentioned nnd   everv owner ot
telephone on tho system in long
distance telephonic communication
with all points east served by the
Alberta government svstem and those
systems in affiliation with it; and
west with Nelson, Rossland and the
Boundary country, and also with
Snuliane and all points in tbe States.
For the purposes ot this enterprise
it Is proposed to build a metallic line
the entire length ot the existing system and bring it thoroiiehlv up-to-
date. Not so long ago where the
Ifnes rnn through the timber limits
where logeing was going on. brcak-
atn-s ol tbe wires were ol constant
occurrence, owing to ctrclessness in
falling the timber, and In such cases
the men simply looped up tbe broken
ends with a piece ol common bale
wire. Business went on, all the
same. But the days ol the hale-
wire are goni, and now tti» righ's-nf-
wav have been cleared out In all di*
rectlons and the svstem made as
nermanent ss lt Is profitable. Still,
there are matters that. In the onin*
ion ot the comnany. remilre further
Imnrnvements, and the proceeds ot
(he stock issue will he, In nart, devoted to the performance ot this
work.
Tbe chlel part ol the expenditure
wlll he In puttlne in n copper metal-
lie circuit, consisting tbron-'hnut ot
two cooper wires of 10 gauge. This
line will he carried on cedar nnlcs
set 105 leet npart from Crows NpsI
to Port Hill, Idaho. Tho government ol Alberta hns agreed to extend Its own system from Frank to
eonnect* with tb*- new enterprise at
Crows Nest, a distance, as telephone
wires are carried, ol some fourteen
miles. At Port Hill. Idaho, Hie new
line wilt connect with one of the
American telephone systems, giving a
connection with Spokane, and thrnuph
that    city   with   Seattle, Portland,
point. Nor will the communication
rest willi points west ol Spokane, as
it will lio just as easy to got In
touch with plaees to the east tu
soutll of   tbat city.
Tbo copper metallic circuit will be
tho controlling nerve ol tlu, entile
system and from it will radiate
auxiliary nerves to every point ol a
young, vigorous, thriving .in.l enormously productive country. It Is an
axiom of telephone operation that
tlio long distance messages are the
mainstay of the enterprise ami realize profits uut ot all prnuot'tion lo
those derived from local, or sliorl
distance, calls. The new systi ni will
be principally long distance work and
1 proportionately profitable.
Starting from the Crows Nest we
come along lo the Loop at Mc-
CHIllvray. Directly to the south
the Corbin camp, where they art-
getting out coal from a seam forty
cifchl feet in width, and this seam is
only one nl many un Ihis property
The eoal will Imi used primarily to
supply the engines of thc Spo'iune
International road and also to supply
Ihe needs ot Spokane and thc adjacent cities and towns. Thc product
of the Corbin mines is taken out over
a branch line some sixteen miles in
length, eunnjcling with the C.P.I!,
at MeOillivray. and lo give some
idea of the rapidity nf the development of this, area il, mav be state:-
lir.it this uiii.ieh was .,Luted less
lhan a year ago and is now quite
complete as Inr as thc Corhln cam
:in active place even now. hut nothing to what it will be when the
tipple, elc, are completed. There
is no reason to doubt that tin
Corbin road will be continued Irom
the present rail-bead down the va ley
of the Flatbead river, passing throng
the oil lands ol Sa'-e and Klsh-11-
nct-nn crcel-i. to connect with thc
Great Northern at Coram. Montana.
Coming further west alont the 0.
I*. K. is the prosperous town of
Michel, as typical a coal-town ns a'
in Pennsylvania, which will soon require a local telephone service Inr it:
business needs. Michel has so nro-
irressed that it has thrown off a new
town called West Michel anoiher cna*
neena creek, to conned with thi
mother. In the vicinity o: Ilrs*irr
the vallev of the Elk river widens
out to some three mil £
and here is to lie foiin I sume reallv
line agricultural land, while thc town
itsell owns its existence and irreat
prosperity to the coal minis In-lining to the C.P.H. and now in an active static of develoiiment. Mere the
C.P.H. has instated snmc 210 coke
ovens In conjunction with their coat
industry, and trom this point will
be shinned tho enormous quantity oi
coal required liv Ihe C.P.H. 1
supnlv its requirements on the ma'--
llne west and east ol Clolden anl
Hevelstoke.
Fernie is another -  for coal and
coVe and represents in tbo public
mind the center ot tbe real M sir
ot Ih* Crows Nest district. Previous
to the dreadful fire which annihllat
ed thc city on the deplorable first of
August, 1008, Fernie had a popula*
tion of over 0,000. Notwithstanding
unexampled loss lu '"'nt of
property, though, happily not in human lite, thc city Is bilng rapidly reconstructed on even more substantial
and beautiful lines than In its previous form. It will btf.iro lung hav.
a population exceeding Its previous
record. It should be borne In mind
that neither the mines, the cual
tipple at Coal Creek nor the coke
ovens wercln anv wav affected hv the
fire. As said belore, the Kootenay
Telephone Lines, I,Id has secured
from the cilv tin- charter lor the
local telephone system, which should
be a source ol grenl nrnlit.
Morrissev is nnother noint in thc
coal region that is unci* again
sorting itself after an interval ol
uiilcsccnce. Here llie Crows Nest
Pass Coal & Coke companv have extensive mines, which arc being again
opened un for shipping -nd the coke
ovens put in a state nl readiness tor
operation. Both the towns ot
Morrissev Junction --d Morrissev
Mines will be tied into the central
telephonic nerve of thc Kootenay
Telephone Lines.
Before twitting the eoal region it
mav be said tbat geological experts estimate that t-he Crows Nest
coal area contains not less than .three
hundred billions of Ions of the finest
coal on the North American continent, embracing semi-anthracite,
steam, household, and coking coals.
Tbis enormous miant-M- ' fuel Is
deemed sufficient to turnlsh 10 000
tons a dav for a tn-riod ot ahout
30,000 vears.    Such n source ot now*
Thc charming little town of Elko.
'.ii'htly to the west ot Morrissey, is
xquisitely situated above the great
anyon of the El-*- river, has an
active lumber business, and is served
not alone by tbe C.P.R., but is also
station on the Great Northern
railway, which runs south from this
unit through the important lumber-
n_- district around Baynes Lalie,
■'..lido, Klunouth, Krag, Flaistone
nd Oateway, to the International

At some point near Elko will be

stated the Kootenay Telephone
Lines, Ltd., has its wires trom
'ranbrook to Fort Steele and Wasa,
md proposes to at once extend tbe
.ystein to Windermere to connect
•villi the government lines at that
mint. Tin- rural '.bones, so extensively used -in the raiithirrg and
fanning parts ol the United States
md Eastern Canada, will be actively

'alley ol the Columbia l.al.s. while
.lie towns that are bound to sprine
nlo existence with the coming ot the
a.w railroad will be provided witb
1 service adequate to tbeir rr-quire-
ncnls.
Durins last tail the Governor Oen-
ral ot Canada, Earl Orey, made a
trip from Argenta on Kootenay lake,
ivcr tho divide and down Toby

Speaking ol tbe Kootenav valley
.Carl (irey was quite enthusiastic ss

er of British Columbia, referred
strongly to tbe want ot railway

h .• one thing needed to bring in
hose who could develop its. great re-
,ourccs. That transportation is now
issurcd, but the matter ol tbe build*
11.' ol the road bas hung lire so
ong tbat people almost despaired ol
ever seeing it constructed. However, It can now be stated ia the
most positive manner that not alone
arc the men engaged in grad.ng the
ortloo south ol Gold. that the
right-ol-way has been purchased between Fort Steele and the point
where thc new line will connect with
Hie .'rows Nest branch ot tbe C.P.R.,
which will be somewhere between

roiitractors have Inspected the site
until from Fort Steele with a view
.0 putting in tbe tenders lor the
work. It Is slated on in authority
lhat cannot be questioned tbat the
line will be inlo Fort Steele before
December of the present vear. It
may be accepted lor fact tbat
lbe Kootenay Central railway will
now Im rushed to a conclusion as
quickly as possible, and this lor the

THE LEMIUEX ACT.
(Toronlo Globe.)
A most gratilying statement wh'ct
:omes Irom Ottawa is tbat the ad
■ent ol the Christmas season tound
not a single indu strial dispute existing in the Dominion. Three were
reported during November, but all
-isd been settled before Christmas
lav. No unemployment arose from
that cause, therefore. In all likelihood we will enter on the new year
with none of these regrettable
strifes that do so much to mar tbe
irogress of commerce and the comfort and well-being of the workers.
tt would be too much to expect tbat
such idyllic conditions can continue
throughout the vear. * It is not too
much to expect, however, that the instances may be few and tbe eon.
sequent loss and suffering greatly
minimized.
It is difficult to think ol anv **,-.,
think that it docs not enable tbem
tribute to prosperity, comfort and
harmony. The strike was tbe in*
weapon the workingman bad to offset the self-interest of the emplovcr
'n his constant strug-gle to keep the
cost ni production at as low a "ni"i
is possible. The Lemleux Act Introduced a more rational means ol asserting tbe workingman's right to ar.
•quitable division of the products of
labor. Workingmen here and there
may be suspicious and disposed to
thing that it docs not enable them
to achieve such radical results as bv
the use of -tbeir old weapon. Rut if
they will recall Industrial history
the;* wlll bave to admit that thc
strike often tailed in Its purpose,
and that all Ibe loss and suffering
were endured in vain.
Ft.r passion and force tbe I-emlcux
Act has substituted reason and negotiation. If the workingman can
lupport his demands wilh fac.s and
figures, if he can prevail against
his employer in the field of ar-u
ment. he achieves without the loss
ol a day's work results that hitherto were achieved hv the erlm proccsi;
nf sc-ing who could stand tbe strain
longest. There Is nerhaps much yt-1
to be learned in ttie aiit-ltcatlos ol
Iln- law. but we are on tbe right
I rack, and It is fair lo anneal to
both emnlover and employed to eiv

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER.
NEW YEAR REVERIES
"flic year lies white in the distance,
Lite snow   that no step has marred,
And wc look at its shinin* surface
As though   through a window barr-
rcd,
And we wonder what idle footsteps
Shall trample  the fallen snow,
Just as we watched and wondered
A year ago.
"'Since then so many footsteps
Have (alien and slitmlili-d past,
That the white perfection ot promise
drew scattered and dark at last;
But the new drilts lie   on   the pathway
To cover tin* blackened snow,
And   lhc   New   Year  comes  in   its
beauty,
As It came a year ago."
if lull find lt so difficult to lii-p
your New Year's resolutions, perhaps
it wnuld be a good Idea to ir.nlvc a
few bad ones this time, lor a
change, For instance, vou mlphl resolve to be cross to vour wife
(if you have one. every dav dulin*
the year, and then give her gentle
words and loving kisses instead. You
can thus lie consistent with vour past
record, and possibly be a better man
when another year rolls around.
A new year is here. It Is a time
for Invoice. Business men take an
invoice of their steel,-. Wouldn't it
ho business lor you to take one of
yourself. Life, each life, is n business. Have you gained or lost last
..ear? Have you used the talents
that have been given vou so as to
gain olher talents. Is there any
prospect of your being placed over
ten cities or five cities or ono citv
Have ynu declared anv dividends in
Ihe way ot loving nnd hulning others,
and have you added anything to the
capital stock of your character'
These arc pertinent questions that
press us all for an answer. Let thc
result of the sell invoice he a spur to
us in living the coming year, or a
cause for great congratulations as
we review the past and go forth to
build "more stately mansions" tor
the luttirc.
Ottawa.
Though times and seasons arc not
as Important as manv would have us
think-, still nearly every thmiehtful
person at thc coming year remembers how old he Is and wishes he
were not quite so old. Let us turn
our minds away Irom the tabernacle
of flesh, thc least real th'ng in our
lives, and think n little of the inward
growinc old. For the hoby every
add*>d growth Is almost Incalculable
g-tln. How old are we? How
much older than a vear, two years,
ten vears ago? How much qiilcler
to recognize thc divine voire? How
much stronger our hand and clearer
our voice against evil? How much
swifter our feet to bear the message
of good will to men? How much
gain has there been in power and
willingness to serve? How much
more faithful are we in the chaos
ot small and common duties nnd
cares? How much truer arc we
in friendship, warmer in thc home
love, more patient with the mistaken
anl the bad?
The pessimist delights ln derision
ol thc rood resolutions which mark
the celebration of New Year in the
minds of many people. Shame upon
tho man or woman who would dull
the bright ambitions and desires tor
the hetter of any human being!
But there is little time to give to
habitual mourners and augurs of evil.
The new year will be what we make
it, so far as our individual lives are
■oncerned, and the man or woman
who resolves to be h.ippv in a
beallhlul. unselfish way, is taking thc
first rnad toward happiness.
We arc all after happiness, in one
wav or another. Even thc recluse,
even th.- martyrs of old. were on
the endless search for happiness.
I hough the ioy ot heaven rather than
that ol earth was thc goal fixed upon
in the eyes ol those who sacrificed
Ihe present for the future. Eternal
happiness was what they desired,
rnsi-lflsh hanpiness is alw.ivs waltintr
i*ii*hl around the corner it wc will
urlv talte our eyes off thc far distance and look nearer home. Thc resolve to make next year a happy one
for those nenrest its will nrinff a
good deal of real tov and satisfaction tn the maker ot the resolution,
il he holds out well.
The first ot .lanuary is the initial
day of the year, and ns such is
honored     by a   multitude   of obser-
nnees. chief among which are the
New Year calling customs, tho Interchange of gifts, the cordial grect-
, "A Happy New Year," and thc
demonstrations attendant upon the
contemplate habit ot seeing the old
yenr out and thc new year in. There
nre two great reasons why thc time
should he, If not cheerful, at least
Iran |iiil. II the old year has brought
sorrow and desolation, and hung
crepe on thc doors, the new year will
bring us tho leaves ol healing, and we
arc glad to part with Ihe one and
welcome thc other. II, one the contrary, thc old year has brought u«
nnly joy and comfort, we part Irom
him snrrowliillv, but meet his successor with the ardent hope that h
too, comes with blessing. The sober
jollity of New Year's day is alwayi
ot an Impressive nature. It Is ll1 e
standing for nne brief moment on the
threshold between time snd eternity.
Here Is the world we 'mw—yonder
the world that is new and untried.
Another vear Is drawing to a close.
Another milestone ot lite is in
view .nd we shall, In all human
probability, pass it and struggle on
to the next. As we sit at our desk
and pen tbis short epistle to the
young, we wonder 11 anything wc
mav write will cause them to think
more seriously ol all life means to
them and the brlet period that is
given them to improve It. The hoy
makes thc man, the girl the woman. My hoy, how -do you want to
be remembered by the people alter
vou are gone, as a Lincoln or as a
Booth? My girl, what position do
you wish to occupy in the hearts
ol tho people with whom you have
lived? You are the moulders ol
vour own destinies. You can make
tbem what you will. It rests with
you whether your name shall go
down In historv honored or cursed, or
whether    it shall pass into oblivion

(The Commoner, Lincoln, Nebraska,)
On blessed Christ Cliild born so long
ago,
In lowly    manger   though ol royal
line,
We bend our heads in adoration low
And    in our     hearts acknowledge
Thee divine,
For   Thou, Oh Son of    Ood, who in
Thy love
Perceived our   low estate and   set
us Irec
Mad'st ample    proof   Thy birth was
from above
Hy daily life ot lovine. ministry.
What wonder, then, that angola winged their flight
From    realms of     glory to    our
world, and then
Above   .Iwlea's   plains aivo'.e       the
night
With  strains of   '"Peace   on earth
good will to men,"
Or that the shepherds, watching o'er
their sh'cp,
Entranced   by song they heard the
angels sing,
Should have their    flocks nor longer
vigil keep
Till   they bad knelt In worship   to
their Kin--.
Or Unit the magi Irmn the cast alar
Should ren'lcr   humage and bestow
rich gilts,
Led as      they    were by truth's unerring star
To manger cradle which   the world
uplifts?
And so as with   these simple    men
and seers
We worshiu or bring gifts of niyrrli
and gold,
Oh tale away our doubtings and our
fear,
That wc Thy face in   beauty   may
behold,
Not now, as then, a Babe in Bethlehem.

HINTS ON FARMING!
THE
BEST    APPLES
ENGLISH.
FOR THE
Spokane, Wash., Jan. 4.—ln response to the requests ot the northwestern fruit growers that they be
afforded the opportunity ol coming
into closer contact with the dealers
applis in Europe, several representatives ot English distributing
firms have come to the apple show
and are remaining throughout the
week, meeting the growers and discussing trade conditions. James L.
Gibson, of Liverpool, who is here representing a claim ot three English
firms, especially as compared with
that of the eastern part ol the
United States:
Our firm handles at least 5(10.000
barrels ol American-grown apples a
year, and supplies the trade fur
both thc eastern part ol the United
States and England and Scotland. We
have been handling the Newton Plp-
nins, of the Hood river growers, who
raise a Iruit that is in high favor in
Europe.
"The English taste ln apples is peculiar. The average Englishman
wants an apple that is bard and -thut
will give a report that can he
heard lor a block whin he bites into
it, together with a tart flavor. A
sweet apple is in no demand there,
and Mcintosh Reds would never sell
at all, owing to their soilness. The
English people have lit* n educated up
to the use ot a light colored auric
and though they will consume the red
varieties, wc shin mostly the other
colors as they can be sold in th.tt
em-ntry more readily than reds. Fur
this reason Wasliln"tun a* "Irs have
not been exported h" om* linn tn am
Treat extent, your people raising
principally red apples, which are
reudllv disposed of In New York. We
hive nit mad'.- anv ntlomnt to educate thc public up to n ereater cin-
sunin.lin ot the red apple, as that
is thc business ol   the grower."

This report contains a brief historv
ot the record and nrtformnnce work

FRUIT GROWING IN BRITISH
COLUMBIA
lhe following from tin- London,
line-land, Morning Posl, will be reail
iviili interest by everyone interested
,n fruit growing:
"Lord Strathcona yesterday opened
ai the Imperial Institute,' South
Kensington, an exhibition ol apples
and other iruit from British lu-
lumhia. Uc said that perhaps there*
nas uu area in tbe world where the
climate was bctt.*r adapted ior the
growing ol apples in the very best
condition. In the southern parts
the peach and other lender fruits
it ere muuu i" great perfection, The
capacity ol production was sueh that
in a very short time we would find
il in greal abundance on the London
markets. 'Ihey were deeply Indebted lur the presence of the Duke ot
Argyll, a former governor-general of
Canada, who was so ablv assisted bv
ihe Princess Louise. Canada has no
heller Iriends. (Applause.) They
.vere indebted to another govetnor-
genoral, lor pioneer work in fruitgrowing iu British Columbia, for at a
time when there was little hope ot
iirniit Lord Aberdeen took a largi
estate there which bad proved oi ad-
.aiiiage both to himself and the
colony.  (Hear, hear.)
Tlio Diiho of Argyll, in moving a
■ uli: of thaniis to Lord Strathcona,
said he only wished he had been as
wise in his day as was Lord Abcr-
li,n and taken up land in tliat w, n
ilcrful Country, lie onl" honed that
ii might be possible lor him to again
,islt Ibe country, and possibly in
coinuany with Lord Strathcona. Admiral Sir E. Frcmantle seconded the
motion, which   wns supnortid hv Sir
ihu Jardine, nml carried with acclamation, Lord Strathcona, in re-
said he was pleased to hear Ihe
Duke ot Argyll speak of lhc possibility of again visiting Canada and Brit-
sh* Columbia, and be could assure
iim that the people who remeni-
eretl his valuable services would extend to him a most enthusiastic welcome.
I'rofessor Wynhdam Dunstan, who
resided, announced that tho Princess of Wales had been unable to attend, but had sent a letter of regret and expressed deep Interest ln the
development of British Columbia."
LONDON'S OPINION
Recent mail Irom England brings
the London Press comments upon tue
recent show ot colonial truit held hy
th*.- Koyal Horticultural society. The
Daily Telegraph says ol the
British Columbia exhibit, which won
lor this province, tor tbe fourth suc
cessive time, the gold medal
most striking features were
"iho
the excellent samples ot apples trom
British Columbia and Nova Scotia,
lhe lirst-named colony provided a
large and well arranged array of apples, remarkable I lor their excellence ol quulity and perfect appear-
ince. The value ol the exhibit was
enhanced by the tact that it is
part of a consignment at present on
ilie market, and visitors whose attention was attracted by the beauty
of the fruit will be enabled to purchase similar quality tbroujh the ordinary retail channels. - Such apples
as Spltzenberg, Grimes' olden
pippin and Cox's orange pippin are
grown to perfection in British Co-
lumbia, and yesterday's display, although excellent, was by no means
misleading as to the possibilities ol
Iruit culture in tbat favored
colony."
