A. E. Walls Insults   Speakers   Who
Immediately Leave tlio
Meet fair
Last Saturday evening's meeting on
"Patriotism and Production" whieh
was being held under the ami trices of
tho Dominion Department of Agriculture at thc Edition theatre wob
broken up in disorder by tbe attempt
of A. B, Watta to Interject polities Into
tho meeting nnd his Insulting remarks
to thc speakers of the evening.
Thc meeting wns a public one nnd
was for tlie purpose of Inculcating patriotic hope mitl more determined efforts on the part of the agriculturists
of thu Dominion for production this
year. The meeting was secured for
Cranbrook through apodal representations made by tbo Farmers' Institute and thc Board of Trade, which
organizations brought every argument
to bear to persuade the authorities
that such a meeting was needed here.
There were about oue hundred farmers and live stock men from points
far distant from Cranbrook, who had
travelled many miles to hear the
speakers and, if possible, acquire some
' knowledge of benefit to thorn in their
vocation. Thc meeting was broken
off just at the most Interesting part
when Information of 'value to the
district was to be given by Mr. Moore
by the frenzied desire of the Pooh
Bah of Wattsburg to shine in the
To say that he bas won the contempt of every farmer and stock
raiaer in this district by his Ignorant
and uncalled for attack on the men
who were striving to Impart knowledge, is telling a grave truth lightly.
His actions at this meeting wero a
disgrace to the fair name of Cranbrook and should be resented by
every fair-minded citizen.
This sort of thing must stop and the
place to stop lt ls at the door before
a public meeting begins. If he desires to go into vaudeville tiiere are
several circuits that might sign him
The effects of this meeting will be
far-reaching and it is not likely that
Cranbrook wlll again be favored by
any Provincial or Dominion speaker,
but will probably bc left out In the
cold on all future provincial programs.
The meeting was called to order by
Mayor Bowness, who flrst gave a brief
outline of thc objects of the campaign, of which three hundred and
fifty similar gatherings were being
held throughout Canada. He emphasised the fact that this was a non-
political meeting.
He first introduced Mr. Cuthbert
ot Victoria, industrial and publicity
commissioner for that city.
This speaker outlined their work
through this province. They had
started as a trio, but Prof. Macdonald
was called back from Creston to the
coast. They had found conditions ln
the Interior very satisfactory and had
met with some live optimists since
they had come Into the Cranbrook district. Mr. Cuthbert stated that he
was at present connected with an
association at Victoria organized for
thc purpose of promoting home consumption of Victoria*made ami Canadian-made goods. They had recently
held a Made-ln-Vlcloria show, which
had proven a surprise to everyone,
Over forty firms were refused space
In tho show because there was no
space to sparo,
Thc recently started public market
In Victoria, said the speakor, bus not
only reducing the cost of living but
hns really proven a God-send to many
farmers In that country. They started with thirteen stall holders, which
had Inter developed Into sixty-four
with a dally average of about fifty.
Farmers had told him that it' he would
keep the market going for one year
they would raise three times ns
much produce. He was gltid that
Cranbrook hail started a market ami
advised the farmers to do everything
to keep It going. It would enable
them lo raise three times as much.!
and get the money for iheir produce, I
In Victoria, continued the speaker,
vacant lots were being leaned free to !
those who would cultivate
Mr. Cuthbert   then    undertook    to i
show  how the war came about, the'
part the empire played In  the days '
Just  before thc  war,  what  the  war
means  to  Canada  and  the  part the

the   purchase-at-home   of   Canadian
made goods.
Mayor Bowness read a late newspaper dispatch from Victoria containing some of the provisions being
made in a bill for loans to farmers
by the McBride government. He then
Introduced Mr. Moore, manager of thc
Dominion experimental farm at Agassis.
Mr. Moore started by saying that he
had advocated live stock for years. At
present tiiere was a scarcity of live
stock ln the world. Recent figures
shown proved that in a decade Canada's population had Increased 34 per
cent, while llve stock had Increased
17 per cent. The city population
hnd increased 62 per cent tad the
country population 17 per cent. Thero
Is six million head of cattle ln Canada
and 134,000 hi British Columbia. There
aro 345,000 hogs ln Canada and
30,000 ln British Columbia.
On account of capital and labor
conditions this year Intensive cultivation must be the order rather than
extensive cultivation. In order to get
the most value out of high-priced land
lho farmer must practice rotation,
said tiie Bpeaker.    We have practiced
throe-year rotation at the farm
which has proven most successful,
thut ls, flrst year, mangels or corn;
second year, grain crop; third year,
clover or some hay crop. If a four-
year rotation ls desired use for posture in fourth year. Mr. Moore referred to two most important farm
requisites, If farming is to be carried
out successfully, naming silos and
alfalfa. He said he would reserve
liis voice for questions, as he had been
having trouble with his throat on this
trip. He stated that he would try to
answer any question, and that the
question part of their meetings had
proven the most Interesting and valuable, as lt brought out the needs of
the particular locality.
Mayor Bowness called on Mr. Bam
Macdonald for any question. Mr. Macdonald started to give particulars of
some of the distress on farms In this
district and was cautioned by Mayor
Bowness about making a speech. Mr.
Macdonald started to resume when
Mr. Watts launched himself into the
argument. With a tirade of abuse
aud villlficatlon he went after the
speakers, the provincial and Dominion governments. He defied (bt chairman and wished to call him to order.
Ho referred to the speakers as a
couple of political heelers, who were
going through the country talking
optimism, which he labelled
He said, "There are hundreds of huB'
gry people ln this district, smokeless
chimneys, deserted farms and empty
houses. The time Is coming when the
sovereign people will speak and they
will put political heelers in their
place. When people are hungry they
wlll speak and sometimes they speak
too loudly." He bragged about the
quantity of gall he possessed. He
then said that the night before that the
local Conservative politicians had met
In secret caucus and had proposed a
resolution for presentation at this
meeting. Then he said, "I am going
to read this resolution. If not with the
consent of your chairman, then without it."
Mayor Howness interrupted at this
point nnd told Mr. Watts that the
people of Cranbrook had beard all he
knew years ago. That he had practiced coming Into Cranbrook and taking possession of meetings and he in-

Press Gallery, Victoria, B. C,
March 8.—There have been many
delegations from the interior of British Columbia who have vlBlted Victoria during the session of parliament, to advance some movement for
their town or district. Yet, it Is easy
to venture tbe assertion tliat thero has
been more diligent, more painstaking.
more persistent than tho one composed of Mr, A. K. Lettch, manager of
tho Kast Kootenay Lumber Co., and
H. C. Moore, of Blairmore, Alta., ox-
pert on the process of of distillation
of stumps and securing therefrom
valuable by-products, a value In fact
that would enable thc average farmer to clear his land free of cost from
the sale of such stumps to a plant of
this character. These two gentlemen
have worked early and late, meeting
ministers time and again, holding con
ferences with different members, and
securing through the Cranbrook mem
ber, Mr .T. Caven, a presentation of
the facts In the bouse. This attracted the attention of many wbo had
heard of the process but did not fully
appreciate the value of the process
to the farmer, thc details of the work,
or the general benefits to both the
town and district where such plants
were located.
Before tbe arrival of Messrs. Leitch
and Moore, the matter was simply a
mystery, today It ls a live, pulsating
economic subject, that Is Interesting
not only the members of parliament
but the people generally as well.
Those back of this Important movement did well in their selection of
their representatives, and the representatives were a credit to the district of Cranbrook. If they do not
succeed In getting all that they wanted, they have secured the sincere interest of the government and the government and tiie members, as well
sb farmers who see tbat in such a
process tjiere ls profits for the man
who has been confronted by the heavy
cost of clearing timbered lands.
Mr. Leitch also took up the question of a tax on lumber and this matter he pushed as fur as any man
could do, and no man was better fitted
for this peculiar mission. What will
be done tn this matter is yet a eonjec-
'; j ture, as governments, no matter
whether they bc Liberal or Conservative, are loath to move too hastily on
any endorsement, nnd that ls all the
provincial government could do.
Mr. Caven made a strong plea for
enforcing the carrying of Canadian
tonnage over Canndlan roads, and
called attention to the fact tbat right
in Cranbrook 42 crews were laid off
by the C.P.R. because much of the
freight was being transported by the
Oreat Northern through the States,
thus employing the laboring men In
the states and depriving the Canadian
laboring man of the employment he
should be entitled to.

thc Beavers Jn Its camp Monday night
at tbe Young Men's Club, by the
score of 30—21. As usual the game
was very fast and exciting and kept
the large crowd on their feet yelling

The preliminary between the Early
Birds and Night Hawks resulted In a
win for the former by the score of
15—10. The teams put up an exciting contest and were loudly applauded for their strenuous efforts.
The Athletics rushed matters from
tbe first and by some clever and fortunate shooting ran up a lead of several points, while the Beavers were
missing the baskets from all angles.
Half time saw the score standing
19—6 In favor of the Athletics. The
Beavers began to work early In the
second half and their attempt to cut
down their .rival's lead gained the
applause ot the audience.. Ashworth

the following statement will enable
your readers to make comparisons
and draw their own conclusions.
My estimate provided a much larger
system than Is being Installed. I provided a 24" intake at tbe reservoir,
with an auxiliary main and equalizers, also mains throughout tbe city
of a proportionate capacity, whereas
12,400 ft. of 4" mains were estimated
for and are now being laid. Recording
meters, tn suitable inspection pits,
were provided, so that the consumption could be ascertained and recorded. Every block In tbe city waB sec-
tlonlzed. Sixty fire hydrants were
provided. A reinforced concrete
dam with telescopic Intake valves and
sluices was Included in the estimate
as well as the deepening of the reservoir to Increase tbe capacity, and
most Important of all In preparing my
estimates I provided means of sufficient capacity to supply Slaterville
and tbe townslte, whenever these two
districts were Incorporated, without
the city having to spend a single cent
control, had already been expended
when I took hold of the department.
I made and was responsible for the
1914 estimates.
Now as regards the work done ou
Edwards street ln 1914, with the exception of the removal of dirt, etc., thc
grading and gravelling wlll have to be

new mains. It practical experience
and a regard to the expenditure of
tbe ratepayers' money had been considered this work should not have been
done till after the water mains had
been laid. With the exception of the
cost of removing dirt, etc., no details are given by Mr. Horlo of the
cost of grading and gravelling, so am
unable to place before you the approximate amount ot money wasted on
this one piece of work alone.
The 1913 council wcre fully alive to
the necessity of grading and making
up the roads, but tbey would not
sanction tbe expenditure of a cent
more than was absolutely necessary
to maintain tbo roads, realising the

Some time ago we mentioned the I
fact that Mr. Thos. Caven was In a
listening attitude in the house. His
listening has borne fruit for he has
made a speech. Would you believe It?
After listening In the house for seven
years our Tom was able to get off
his maiden effort just before the close
of the present sen nion, It was duly
published in the Conservative dally
press accompanied with a double
coluinn portrait of himself. He received the personal commendation of
tlie premier for bis wonderful
strength-devastating, mind-wrenching
onco-ln-sevcn year spasm. And our
Conservative frlonds are telling us
tbat all sorts of credit is due our mem-:
ber because he advocated for govern-I
ment assistance for the wood distillation plant. Of course, but why should
he wait until tin? close of the session
when it was too late to accomplish
anything? Why didn't he agitate long
and loudly the length and breadth of
this session until he had made some
impression, and secured some results? We are fully advised that he Is
a candidate and the fact that Thomas
made a speech may mean his re-election providing that Is ull the electorate of this district want, u member whose orntory becomes unloosened
just before election and who Is the
most capable sphinx ln the house during the remainder of seven sessions.

Alfalfa is becoming an Important
erop on the irrigation lands ot
HaaittliiTn Alberta, and an experiment
lias just been conducted by the Dominion Experimental station at Lethbridge to ascertain Its value as a teed
for lambs. The result shows that lt
ls entirely satisfactory and profitable
to buy lambs at market prices and
feed them with alfalfa as the principal ration. The alfalfa ration was
supplemented wltli smaller quantities
; of oat sheaves and a certain amount
of grain.
'.   The following statement shows that
tile average profit por head realised
, was over one dollar:
