THURSDAY. SEPT. 19tlr, 1918
Constable Johns an duty behind Baker street on Friday, the 13th, heard
a noise followod by the breaking ot
glass. He ran In the dreclton ot the
noise and saw a man running nway
Willi a suit case. He ran after him
at lull spend anil called on lilm three
or four rimes tn stop, lint the guy
was "nmi' sprinter anil kept ou going.
Whereupon tho constable ilred a shot
rrom his gun In the nlr. This Immediately brought the of fender to n hull.
It was then discovered that Ihe desperado was I'eter Frank, well known
In this district
Upon Invstlgntlon of th Cranbrook
Saddlry Company's premises it was
iound that entrance und be'. gained
from the rear by removing a piece of
quarter-round from the window casing, which allowed the top portion ot
the window to drop. Accused entered and proceeded to the front of the
Btore, where he carefully removed a
$20 suit case from the show window.
Frank was brought before Police
Magistrate John Leask and committed for trial. He elected tor speedy
trial and came before Judge Thompson on Monday, and pleaded guilty.
Chief of Police Hersey stated that
there was no criminal record against
the accused. .Enquiries had been
made and It would appear that Peter
had always been a good worker and
no motive could be found (or hi* fall
from grace. Tbe accused here Interposed that If the Judge would deal
. leniently with him he would like to
Join tbe army.
Judge Thompson adjourned the
case until Saturday n«t to give him
an opportunity to enlist, but unfortunately the accused stands only 4
foot t Inches and is of slight build.

Help the Boys "Over There'
by Saving Gasoline
The Allien need gasoline. Waste none ol It on Sunday
motoring for pleasure. He who uses it (or this purpose
stlntB those who are fighting our battles. It Is the duty of
all motor car owners to comply with the Fuel Controller's
request to save "gas."
The safoty of the State being the supreme law, personal
enjoyment must give place to national necessity during
war time. To save gasoline Is to save money, lt will also
eiiHtire a more adequate supply of "gas" for the needs of
our war machine, which must lack no essential. To comply with lhe Fuel Controller's request will save VHIMIOO
on it single Sunday. In gasoline lt will also save hundreds
of thousands of gallons. A word lo the wise motor car
owner Is sufficient.
Treacherously Shot by Hun Prisoner
Word 1ms been received from the
front that Capt. F. D. Smith, well
known In Cranbrook had been shot
by u Hun prisoner and the following
extract trom a brother officer's letter
slums how it was so treacherously
done: "Poor old Smith. He captured
n Hun the other day In the push. The
fellow held up his hands, so Smith
passed him on to the men behind to
take to thc rear. Well, as soon as
Smith was past him he grabbed a rifle
and shot Smith in the back. Rumor
had it that he was dead, but tho adjutant had a letter from him afterwards and he Bays he ls getting on
fine. Hope so, but this will probably
finish his flghtng."
Open Letter to Hon. Dr. King
Member for Cranbrook
Hon. Dr. King, Minister of Public Works.
Member for the Electorial Division of Cranbrook.
Honorable and Dear Str:-
The property holders of the Electorial Division of
Cranbrook regret that the Provincial Government, of which
you are an honorable member, have decided to put on a sale of
provincial government lands.this fall, and they have been astonished beyond measures and have clothed themselves in sackcloth and ashes upon hearing that this inopportune decision is to
be enforced against them without even giving them notice of the
sale of their property in a newspaper published and circulated
amongst them. The. fact tha* the farmers especially are to be
sold out ls to be published broadcast throughout Alberta; they
are to be humiliated by having their precarious financial condition held up to the ridicule of a sister province—a financial-
condition accentuated by the onerous surtax that has been levied'by your government—while 'ttef. the interested TtertletJ Me'
not even given an opportunity of knowing who the victims of
this outrageous proceeding are to be.
It is not yet too late to rectify this gross injustice and on
their behalf we humbly pray you to see that it Is done.
Faithfully yours.

Canadian food board says:
Do householders ln Canada seek to evade
tious'.'   Are the merohants In Canada conniving at tbe evasion
of the food regulations? Let us see about that.
Tbe main objective ot the Canada Food Hoard is to supply
Great Britain and the Allies with vital foods. With this in view
food regulations are made, which, if respected by the people of
Canada, will enable Canada to keep faith with the Allies on food.
Do lhe people of Canada want to keep faith with the Allies
on food? THEY. DO, Are the people of Canada keeping faith
with the Alies on food?  THEY ARE.
To lake any other position is to suggest that the people of
Canada would rather keep their pre-war food habits than keep
faith with the Allies on food. No true Canadian is breaking the
food regulations of the Canada Food Hoard for he knows these
regulations are made in order that Great Britain and the Allies
and lhe Canadian army at the front may be properly fed.
Who of us will eat ivlial should lie conserved for the Can-
nilian Army at the front?
The hearts of the people of Canada are sound and in this
war to a finish. Foot! is a first class munition of war and Canadians so view it. I( will be time enough to go in for rations in

after him, bag and baggage, lock, stock and barrel, horns, hoofs
and tail, and it was the intention of the government that they
should not know a thing about it until they were scotched.
Many of Hon. Dr. King's friends say that surely the genial
doctor would not lend himself to such a gross injustice and he
may have fought against it. But he is travelling in a vicious
circle and his better judgment may have been overcome by his
unscrupulous colleagues, or an unholy ambition may have turned his head. Whatever has been the reason he certainly has consented to the handing out of a very raw deal to his constituents.

This is a gross injustice to the farmers of Ibis community.
The sale in tlie first place should never have been hold at this
time. It ls the hardest time in the history of the British Columbia farmer to make his living and raise money to pay his taxes.
But the government musi have Ihe money even if il lias lo kill
(he goose that lays the golden egg In order to get It, Why does
the government need the money? Because of ils extravagance.
There was to be a curtailment of expenditure In order to equal-
lie the revenue and expenditure of the provincial administration, but the late administration was only a kindergarten in the
art of spending the public money when compared with lhe present aggregation of spendthrifts
The Liberals were horrified because Bowser had lent the
Pacific Great Eastern $6,000,000 out of (lie provincial treasury
iu order to complete their undertaking. But, when the Liberals
got into power they appointed a commission to investigate the
affairs of the company and when they discovered that their own
friends were Involved and stood to profit they cancelled that
great debt on payment by the company of one million dollars instead of six million. If they needed the money so badly, why go
after the farmer and sell him out of house and home for a paltry
tax account and give millions to a bunch of grafters who were
already gorged with the people's money.
They were going to reduce expenditure by cutting out special officers and commissions, removing all thc unnecessary officials. Had they reduced the staffs as they promised to do and
cut off all useless and expensive commissions, there would have
been no need to take such drastic measures with the farmer.
There would have been no need for a surtax that increased the

The following letter has been received by Mr. Hallimore,
which ought lo be read with interest by all who wish to know
the facts in regard to the it. A. P. Canada:
Dear Mr, Hallamore:—
During tlie past few mouths a number of newspaper articles have appeared from time to time giving erroneous statistics
regarding casualties iu the Royal Air Force training squadrons.
The public, have, therefore, received an incorrect impression.
The purpose of this letter is to furnish authentic statisdes in order that you may be in possession of facts regarding the above
question. 1 should be obliged if you would extend the same cooperation as you have In the past and see that the informatjon
given below is placed In the hands of your local newspapers.
For the purpose of preparing statistics, the to(al number of
flights and casualties throughout the entire R. A. F. during a
certain period was obtained. For the purpose of comparison.
similar statistics were obtained from (raining squadrons operating in England. Iu the It. A. F. Canada, there were 36,263
flights, with 13.5ii(l hours flying, during which there were 59
crashes, 3(i of which were admissions to hospital. The English
statistics give !l,000 flights, with -1,000 hours flying, during
whicli there were 58 (practically the same number) of crashes.
iii of which were admissions to hospital.
From the above figures you will see that for four tim«B as
many flights, with three times as many hours in the air, the
number of Canadian casualties are practically the same as the
number of Englah casualties.
You will note that (lie above flights in Canada cover approximately 813,!)(i0 miles, or 34 times around the globe, thus we have
one fatality for 110.280 miles, or for 6 times around the globe,
The conclusions to be drawn from the above figures are so evident thai no further explanation Is required,
1 (rust thai this letter will receive the same careful consideration as you have extended lo previous letters.
Yours sincerely.

Lieutenant. Officer Commanding No, 3 Recruiting District.Royal
Air Force, Vancouver.
The British Columbia Qovernment are about (o hold a sale
of provincial lands iu arrears for taxes. But marvellous to relate the notice advertising the lands in arrears in this district
is to be published In a paper that does not circulate In the district. In fact the publication selected is nol a newspaper at all,
bul a society periodical, published at Fernie by Ihe Miners' Union for circulation among tho miners to advocate the Interests
of the miners only and whose circulation is principally In Alberta. The money to be paid for the advertisement might as
well be thrown into Ihe Fertile coke ovens and burnt up.
It is a political job, a deliberate robbery, a looting of the

A. I Fisher, who was returned ai the last election as an Independent, but who sold himself body and soul to the government, has been accused of putting over (his foul deal for the
purpose of obtaining the influence of Ihe miners' organ for the
next campaign. It has been put up to him in this way: Mr. Fisher, the man who would give $2500.00 of the public funds to an
organ whose chief business it is to carry on a Bolshivlkl propaganda is a damn traitor, aud thou art the man. The language
is strong, but not too strong to designate the crime committed
against the public, It would not be too strong if a little word of

qpfSrtlt&tes can and will entertain no pro-
I ]K)sul  for a conference upon a matter concerning which ft hat-, made its
purpose and position  so  plain" und
points the muzzle of Its guns towards
Met/, and the Rhine.
The question has been asked what
j are the million and a half or American  soldiers  doing over in  France?
T ousands of- them have been brigaded  with    the French  at Chateau-
Thierry, on the Marne and elsewhere,
but the great bulk of the American
army was held tn reserve.
Now It appears that question can
be answered. On Saturday the news
was flashed over the wires that the
American army had begun an offensive In the Verdun district and that
in 27 hours the St. Mlhiel salient had
been eliminated and that Pershng
with the Yanks stood before the
great German citidel of Metz. The
loss of Metz would have almost as
demoralizing an effect upon the Germans as the loss of Paris would have
upon tlte French.
This new offensive will test the
strength of the Germans tn manpower more than anything yet attempted.
If their reserve power is low this
move will surely demonstrate that
fact. If the Hun cannot successfully
defend Metz and must fall back upon
the Rhine, after havng been forced to
retire in the west to the Hinderburg
line. It will mean that the Allies of
Germany and those who arc looking
on with longing eyes to see the Germans victorious will be convinced
that Germany is going to receive a
thorough beating and they will got
from under before it is altogether too
This then, is America's reply to Emperor Charles' peace proposal. How
Charles is receiving It is not known
already yet.
Balfour on behalf of Great Britain
says: "It Is Incredible that anything
can come of this proposal," and the
British army makes further advances
In Plcardy.
The French say it is a trick and
continue to push the insolent invaders out of French territory.
The Italians give their answer by
swatting the Austrians on the Italian
The answer of the Japs is shown in
their capture of an enemy naval base
In the Far East.
In Macedonia also, the Allies are
making notable advances.
The robber bandits from their
strongholds, Emperor Charles acting
as their spokesman, uropose to the
police force of the world who have
tracked the murderous band to their
lalr. to give up the fght if the police
will please go away. The murderers,
however, do not propose to give up
their loot, recompense those who
have suffered from their lawlessness,
murder, rapine and robbery, nor give
any kind of undertaking that they
will reform end live at peace with
their neighbors.
Other terms of peace are now moving around within the heads of the
Allies in nebulous form that will soon
take on a more definite shape and it
won't have any lkeness to a German
If the Huns want peace they are
going the wrong way about It to get
It. They will never force a peace
from the Allies by sinking their ships
and drowning their women and children; by ruthlessly devnstalng their
country and taking their sons into
captivity and their daughters Into ii
white slavery; by firing upon hospitals and hospital ships; by pointing
their places of worship and destroying their cathedrals; by surrendering
and then treacherously shooting
down their captors. Peace through
annihilation is the kind of peace that
plan of campaign will usher in,

The Plain Truth about-
Shoe Prices
IEATHER is scarce and is growing scarcer. A
large part of the available supply must be used
j for soldiers' boots.  Importations have practically ceased and we are forced to depend
upon the limited quantity of materials produced in
The cost of everything which goes into a pair of shoos is
high, and is going higher. Workmen by the thousands have
joined the colors, and labor is increasingly hard to get. lt is
not merely a matter of high prices, but of producing enough
good quality shoes to go around.
These conditions are beyond the control of any man, or
any group of men. They fall on all alike. No one is exempt—
neither the manufacturer, the dealer, nor the consumer.
You must pay more today for shoes of the same quality than
you did a year ago.  Next Spring, prices will be higher still.
These are hard facts. They will not yield to argument.
They cannot be glossed over, Wc cannot change them, much
as we would wish to do so.
But you, as a wearer of shoes, can help to relieve them if you
will exercise prudence and good judgment in purchasing. See
that you get real value for your money. Spend enough to get
it, but spend nothing for "frills."
See that the manufacturer's trade-mark is stamped upon the
shoesyoubuy. High prices arc a temptation to reduce the quality
in order to make the price seem low. But no manufacturer will
stamp his trade-mark upon a product which he is ashamed
to acknowledge. Remember this, and look for thc trade-mark.
It is your best assurance of real value for your money.
