CRANBROOK,   B.C.,  THURSDAV,  JANUARY   13th,  1927
N U M II li k   4 7
On Sunday evening last a very en.
joyablo concert was held at the Star
Theatre under the auspices of the
Cranbrook Womens' Institute, the
object of which was to raise further
funds for the Queen Alexandria Sol.
arium for Crippled Children, towards
which the Womens' Institute hnve
now raised about $1200.00.
While the theatre was not entirely
full, the Bum of $40.30 was raised
from a collection. Those who were
not present, not only lost the opportunity of contributing in a small way
to a good cause, but also missed a
splendid program of sucred music
given by local talent, and as was said
by many who attended, it was a pity
the theatre was not crowded.
A  Fine   Program
The program given was as follows:
vocal solo, Mrs. C. Harrison, "Ave
Maria;" vocal solo, Mrs. Brumby,
"Just As I Am;" violin solo, Mr. V.
Fink, "Ave Maria;" vocal solo, Mrs.
E. I. Paterson, "Leave It To Him;"
vocal duet, Mrs. J. Norgrove, Mrs,
M. Forest, with violin obligato by
Mr. Fink, "Abide With Me;" violin
and pianoforte, Miss A. Sarvis and
Mr. V. Fink; vocal solo, Mrs. E. C.
Kuhnert; violin solo, Mr. T. Padberg";
vocal solo, Mn. N. L. Park, "Come
Unto Him;" quartette, Mesdames
Kuhnert, Hinton, Messrs. Hlnton and
At the conclusion of the program,
Mrs. Norgrove, president of the Wo-
mens* Institute, thanked those present for their attendance, and on be-
half of the Institute, asked for the
names of any crippled children who
might wish to take advantage of the
treatment at the Solarium. She also
took occasion to thank his worship
Mayor Roberts and those contributing to the program and others who
had assisted towards the success of
the evening, also mentioning particularly Mr. A. C. Blaine for the
free use of the theatre for the holding of their concert.
History ef Solarium
Mayor Roberta, who was presiding,
gave a brief address on the inception and the approaching completion
of the solarium which has been built
at Mill Bay, Vancouver Island, where
crippled children are to be treated
with nature's remedies, consisting of
sunshine, fresh air and sea bathing,
assisted by science in the form of
ultra violet rays and other health
giving treatments. Mayor Roberts
said the appeal for the solarium was
first started in 1925, and the response was encouraging from the
beginning. Sufficient money was soon
available for the purchase of seven
acres of a very desirable site, and
last July construction of the building
was commenced. It is the intention
to open the building as soon as possible, though it will probably be a
couple of months before all the available beds can be filled. Boys up to
twelve and girls up to fourteen aro
to be admitted, and the minimum
cost of $6.00 per week must bo paid
by the parents, if possible, although
inability to meet this sum will not
prevent any deserving case being admitted.
Funds in hand, Mayor Roberts
stated, are almost sufficient to cover
thc completion of the first building
and thc necessary staff, which will
accomodate thirty or forty children.
After that, other funds will have to
be raised for endowment and extensions which are expected to be noces-
sary as soon as the beneficial results
of this treatment are seen. $10,000
is needed at once for present requirements, "ls this sum, or even more
than this, too much to ask to provide means by which the crippled
children shall be given a chance of
food and permanent recovery?" the
Mayor asked.
Latter From Sapariataadant
In connection with progress at the
Solarium, the Mayor read a letter
received from Dr. Wace, the honorary secretary of the Solarium, which
waa as follows:
Dear Sir:
May I first ask that at the meeting
on Sunday you will convey the very
sincere and grateful thanks of the
directors of tha Queen Alexandra
Solarium to all those who have given
auch generous support to this movement In aid of the crippled children
of  B.C. and  the  west  of Canada.
We hope to admit the first
children during the latter part
of February, and we already
have a long list of candidates for
admission. We have every hope that
we shall open the solarium free of
debt, and while we have no endowment fund, I am confident that we
can rely on the generous support of
the public. A nurse-ln-charge haa
been appointed who wu trained last
winter under Sir Henry Gauvain at
Lord Mayor Treloar's Crippled Children's Homes at Alton and Hay.
lint Island. Sir Henry Gauvain was
here in September, and twice visited
the site of the solarium, and he expressed the opinion that "the site
waa In every way admirable." We
shall shortly be sending out the forms
of admission and rules, and ahall be
glad ta hear of any crippled children |
who would be benefited by the solarium Utataseat

Speakers at Banquet Wed
nesday Express Optimism
For Future
Wednesday i-vcning the unnual
meeting of the Cranbrook District
Agricultural Association was held in
thc bani|iu*l room of the K. I'. Hull,
and was in every way a decided iuo«
cchh. There were over sixty in attendance, representatives being present from all parts of the district.
The dinner, for which Mr. Geo.
Anton, of the Victoria Cafe woh responsible, was thoroughly enjoyed,
everyone present seeming to have
brought their best appetite with them
and had them well satisfied.
Following thc banquet the chair
was taken by Mr. J. P. Kink, who
called upon Mayor Roberts for an
Mayor Preient*  Priiei
Hia Worship the Mayor extended
greeting to the members, and expressed his sympathy with the Cranbrook Agricultural Association, and
regretted that the weather had not
been favorable for them last year
when they were all dressed up and
ready to go. He was glad that with
the help of the Gyros they had sue
ceeded in coming out on the right
side of the ledger. He concluded his
remarks by wishing the Fair Association every success in their 1927 exhibition.
He then made the presentation of
the following prizes:
Canadian Bank of Commerce Cup
to Cranbrook Pig Club—won by Miss
Second prize, crop judging, New
Westminster Fair—Helen McClure,
Kenneth Jolliffe,  Jim  Stone.
Gold medals for highest team in
Live Stock judging at Vancouver
Fair—Ernest Worden, Lawrence Foster, Margaret McClure. Also cup
and bronze medals for Poultry judging, ten teams competing.
On being called upon for a speech,
Master Ernesfc -Worden, on behalf of
the prizewinners, thanked the people
of Cranbrook and district for having sent them to the Coast. He believed that the success which had
been theirs would prove of benefit
to the district, and expresssed the
hope that the good work done would
continue. Ernest's little impromptu
speech ( which won for him many admirers, was roundly applauded.
More Co-operation
Mr. J. P. Fink, speaking on hehall
of the directors, referred to the hard
luck which they had had lasl year,
and in regard to this year's fair,
made the suggestion that the various
civic bodies co-operate with respect
to a future home for the fnif, now
tlmt the building on the hill being
gone made it a necessity. To continue the arrangement of last year,
meant  throwing away  money.
The minutes of the last annual
meeting W6W adopted as read, and
the financial report adopted. This
showed that the 192»> executive had
conducted the fair and had not drawn
on the surplus cash, but were in reality a few dollars to the good.
The chairman, in referring to the
good attendance from all parts of
the district, welcomed Mr. Wm. Dick-
as president of the Fernie Fair
Board, who would have something to
say on the matter of the choice of
fair dates.
Speak* of   Fernie Fair
Mr. Dicken, in his address, took
occasion to compliment the company
the nice gathering, considering
thnt it augured well for the success
of this year's fair. Recollecting n
former visit to this city eighteen
years ago, when, as he put it, "Fernie hnd a bit of a fire," the visitor
snid the kindness of the Cranbrook
people would never be forgotten.
Their hospitality had mnny times
since been referred to hy them, and
the debt of gratitude which they
owed the people of Cranbrook would
never be forgotten.
With reference to dates for the
Fall fair, Mr. Dicken pointed out
thnt their fair board had determined
that it was essential to their success
to have the dates of their fair advanced, to avoid confliction with the
Labor Day celebration. Their idea
was also to co-operate with Cranbrook and Columbia In order that the
dates may run, if possible, consecutively. This was the main object of
hfs mission* the matter of determining the date having been left
to him to take up with the Cranbrook
board. In reference to last year's
fair, which was Fernie's first, he was

During the past year the library
iias been well patronized by the public. The total circulation of books
amounts to 4470 volumes. There are
nn the shelves aboul 18D0 books, being an increase of over 700 since this
time last year. The sum of $150.00
is in course of being spent at the
present time on the purchase of new
books. The directois nre indebted to
Mrs. Miles for her assistance in advising upon the selection of hooks.
New shelves have had to be added

that additional shelves will bc required in thc immediate future.

a matter which can be easily remedied, as it is simply n case of ap-

T. H. Roberts, Esq.,
Mayor tf Cranbrook,,
About one hundred members of
lhe Odd Fellows' und Rebekah lodges
went up to Kimberley on Tuesday
night by special train, the occasion
being the customary joint installation
of the new officers of the four lodges
in Crunbrook and Kimberley. The
ceremony took place in thc Odd Fel-
i-v.s' Hall there, and was followed
iy i*. splendidly served supper, und a
lance whieh did not break up until
bout 2 o'clock. The visitors were
tifanimous in their expressions of
gratification at the hospitality which
A.is extended to them by members
if thc Kimberley lodges, und the
joint installation promises to be
come one ef the permanent functions
that will tend lo keep the interest
of the two towns somewhat united,
The installing officer was Brother
Pontus Johnson, the District Deputy-
Grand Master, and assisting him was
Sister M. West, of Maple Leaf Rebekah Lodge, the District Deputy Rebekah president. Other officers assisting in the installation were: Sister
A. G. James, of Kimberley, as D.D.S.
Warden; Bro. H. Andrews, P.G., as
D.D.G. Marshal; Bro. E. Nisbet, as
D.D.G. Fin. Sec; Bro. W. S. Johnston, P.G., as D.D. Rec. Sec; Bro.
F. G. Morris, P.G., as D.D.G. Treasurer; Bro. S. Fyles, P.G., as D.D.G.
Chaplain; Bro. M. J. Halpin, P.G., of
Kimberley, as D.D.G. Guardian, and
Bro. J. Blezard, P.G., of Kimberley.
as D.D.G. Herald.
Following the completion of the
impressive installation ceremony,
there were a few short speeches
made, and a pleasing incident took
place when Bro, P. Johnson waB presented by Bro. A. A. Watkins, the
retiring Noble Grand of Sullivan
Lodge, with a Past Grand's presentation collar. Bro. Johnson was taken
completely by surprise, and in a
suitable acknowledgement gave a
short outline of the wonderful growth
the Kimberley Lodge has made since
its inception a few years ago, until
it hi now in possession of a fine large
Supper was served in the upper
rooms, and in spite of the fact that
Alderman F. M< MacPherson goes
back on the li»2T Council for a one
year term, being the only nominee for
this vacancy; the three retiring
School Trustees, .Mrs. J. Jackson, and
Messrs. F. H. Dezall and W. Henderson, are returned by acclamation, aa
anticipated; W. F. Attridge put back
on the Police Commission for another two year term, and four nominated for the three two-year vacancies
in the city council.
This sums up the result of the
nominations held on Monday at the
city hall, and gives rise to the voting
whieh is being held today, the result
of which will be known this evening.
Of the two nominated for the mayoralty, T. M. Roberts, present incumbent, and W. F. Cameron, both are
so well known, and have many sup-
pott-rs, so that to attempt to predict
any result would be idle. The contest is expected to be close, with not
much to spare, whoever proves the
winner  .
For the three vacancies on the city
council for the two-year terms, J. IL
Cameron, who hus now served for
many years, is looked upon as a sure
winner, and also A. J. Balment. veteran of many campaigns, who has
aiso been on the council for many
years. The third vacancy will most
likely be contested by J. A. Arnold,
a foimef Aldermun, and W. C. Robinson, a dark horse nominee, whose
advent into the race for aldermanic
honors, if unexpected, has many
supporters with him. and who will
most likely record n fairly good vote.
The nominations, as made to the
city clerk, on Monday, were as follows:
For Alderman—Two  Year Term
Balment, Alfred James—nominated by Lester Clapp and W. F. Worden.
Arnold. James Arthur—nominated
by Nellie Hogarth and Alan Graham.

t beg to submit the annual report of the Works Department for
the year 1928:
During the yeur 2ti new service
connections were made, involving
968  feet of trenching.
New extensions to the water system  were  made  as  follows:
On Armstrong Ave., between Kain
and Dennis, '11)5 feet of 4-inch steel
main.       On   Hanson   Ave.,   between
1 Kain and Dennis, IBO feet; a total of
045 feet of 4-lnch steel main.
On the Armstrong Ave. extension
one hydrant was installed. 7 house
Connections transferred from the
uhl to the new main, uud .'I new service boxes placed,
The total amount of water trench
dug was therefore 1008 feet.
040 feet of 2-inch main whs also
laid on Dennis Street, and .'I connections made to the residences of
Measrs. Whiting, Bennett and Pass-
amre. The trenching for this line
was, however, not dug by city lahor.
60 repairs were made to the water
system, as  follows:
81 leaks, 5 defective valves, ii hydrants ami 3 service boxes.
There wen* exceptionally few
"thaw-outs," there heing only 12, fi
of which were al hydrants and valves.
Regular visits were mnde to the
reservoir for the purpose of Inspection and the occasional destruction of
beaver dams, which have caused
some trouble at the upper reservoir.
25G service orders were attended
to   dining  the   year.
Gold Creek Ditch
On Cold Creek in April, 2 Va miles
of ditch, namely that portion bo-
twee n the intake and thc St. Jos.
ephs Creek divide, waa cleared ol
windfall and rock ami gravel caved
frnm the sides during the previous
full and winter, and (UIO feet of shal
low ditching was dug on the lowei
end of the ditch where it approaches
the government wagon road, to pre
\. nt saturation of the same from
In June a washout of 20 feet oc
during after heavy rains, was repair
ed, anil the ditch was cleared of
several cave-ins which also occurred
in the deeper cuts. 5 dnys were occupied on this work.
Water was first admitted to the
ditch on the 22nd April, but the same
did not reach St. Joseph's Creek till
May 20th, a period of 2H days, the
delay being caused by the fact that
the water has first ttt fill a natural
reservoir formed by several potholes
with an estimated capacity of three
and one-half million feet, where thc
underlying gravel is to all appearand s lioth deep and porous, and
where undoubtedly excessive absorption and considerable evaporation occur. Attention has been drawn to
these conditions in a previous report,
namely thnt of August, 1925, and nt
your request, I have already submitted an estimate for the diversion
of the ditch around this and a similar
area  known as  Deacon's Slough.
The water was shut oil' on November 20th, the ditch having been kept
to Us full capacity white in use with
the exception of the latter part of
July, when the flow in Gold Creek
diminished to such an extent that it
was no longer possible to fill it to
its full capacity, in consequence of
which, and the seepage in the previously mentioned flooded area adjacent to the divide, water then censed to flow iti the lower ditch on the
St. Joseph's Creek side. However,
when rain fell in the early part of
August, the diteh regained its normal flow, which was afterwards
uiditions of the diteh proper
is fair, with the exception of some
two or three plnces, where owing to
unovenness of grade, it would be very
advisable to do considerable work in
the way of reducing its level in order
to increase its currying capacity,
Seepage from rock sections has
greatly diminished owing to continu-
utii puddling, but the necessity of
yearly cleaning of caved banks oc-
curiing mainly in the early Spring,
will remain until the sides of have
assumed a more natural slope.
\\ bile :ti no tiaie did the water
level in the eity reservoir actually
fall below iis norma! level, yet during the latter part of July and the
early part of August, the observed
amount wasting over the spillway at
the city intake, fell as low ns I c.f.s.,
and at times was possibly less. This
was m> doubt dm* mainly to un exceptionally low precipitation on the
watershed during the previous Fall,
Winter and Spring.
At   lbe   present  time   tbe   amount
wasting varies from 2.7 to 4.7 c.f.s,,
according to weather conditions.

Culverts  and  Dry   Weill
Three square reinforced concrete
culverts, with end walls, were built
on Armstrong Ave. (00 feet in
'ength), on French Ave. (00 feet in
length) ami on Louis St. (GO feet in
length): total 1D2 feet, all of which
required a large amount of filling,
particularly that on French Ave.,
where in addition it was found neces-
surv to cut, haul and plnce 1000 lin.
feet of timber for crlbwork to retain
sides of fill.
Four concrete end walls were huilt
at ends of previously placed 30-inch
G.l. culverts on F.ast Hnnson nnd
Fast Durick Lnnes.
A 30-inch G.l. culvert, 20 feet in
length, wa.s placed in East French
Lane on Smith Creek, where nc
bridge previously existed, and the re-
quisitc fill made. 130 feet of small
(i.i. culvert was placed on Garden
and Pooley Avenues and Louis and
Van Horne Streets; GO feet of old
wooden culvert on Kuins St. was nlso
replaced  with galvanized iron.
13 dry wells excavated from G to
7 feet in depth, with central enve
walls of square concrete blocks nnd
filled with loose rock, were placed for
drainage on Baker, Louis, Cranbrook
and Van Home Streets, Norbury and
Armstrong   Avenues,
A wooden bridge, 12 feet in \vidthy
with rock filled crib abutments, was
built over St. Joseph's Creek on
Kuins Street, and the approaches
Wooden sidewalks throughout the
city were inspected at intervals and
repaired where necessary. Under
By-Law No. 263, 3004 lin. feet of
these sidewalks huve been repluced.
In six places cement sidewalk,
broken probably through the subsidence of old water trenches, were repaired. When icy conditions prevailed, sand was applied to sidewalks
requiring it.
A shed 7.r> x 22 feet, with three
closed compartments, wus built for
the storage of equipment. This was
built us un addition to the City Ware
house. At the Skating Rink building a smull two-compartment lean-to
was built to house two frost-proof
toilets, and connections made from
same to the sower system.
ln Mny 8 carlouds of gravel were
unloaded at the C.P.R. team trackB
and spread on the C.P.R. right of
way adjacent to the Depot, by the
city forces. A concrete base, 14 x 14.
with nine concrete posts, was placed
on Baker Street near Garden Avenue,
for the War Memorial, which was
removed from its previous site under contract. The usual work of
cleaning business streets, blocked
culverts, etc., was attended to.
Park* and Cemetery
At tin? old Tourist Pnrk the fence
and cookhouse were torn down. At
the new park the mud approach was
graded, 220 feet of new page wire
fence erected on Edwards Street, nnd
■130 feet of old wire fencing restored
by replacing rotted posts. 800 feet
oi' wire fence was taken down and
The water service was nlso extend
ed r>0 feet, nnd the following additions made to the lavntory building
1 one-hundred gallon hot water
lank and heater, two toilets and two
wash basins.
At the Children's Pnrk the summer
service was relaid in the Spring, and
tnken up again in the Fall, and the
pnrk was generally cared for by a
caretaker employed to look nfter
both park and cemetery during the
summer season. The summer service to the cemetery was connected
and disconnected ns usual, and an
extension of 50 feet was made thereto. Thc occupied area was kept clear
of weeds nnd was cleaned up generally.
The dump and approach nt the
Nuisance Ground were cleaned up in
thc Spring, nnd 730 Innds of ashes
und 312 londs of refuse were removed from the city lanes under con-
trnct, and hi londs of refuse were
also removed by city forces when tho
contract wns not in force.
Building Permits
20 building permits were issued
during the year, the total value given
amounting to $1)6,705.00.
The total amount of londs carried
bv city trucks during the year follows :
Crushed rock  '.  3608
Filling, for roads, bridges,
culverts, etc    1050

Two extensions were mnde to the
sewtT system as follows;
On Eust Armstrong Lnne, between
Knins and Dennis, 245 feet of 6-inch
main sewer, and on East Garden
(Block 97>. 90 feet of 6-inch main
sewer, making a total of 335 feet.
The depth of the trenching on the
East Armstrong Lane extension
averaged 12 feet in hnrdpan, this
depth being necessary to secure fall
for the lots on Norbury and Arm-
stronir Avenues, adjacent to Dennis
Street. The sewer manholes through-
out the city were twice inspected, the
catch pans emptied and the sewers
flushed. Only one stoppage occured
during tbe yenr.
At the Disposal Works lhe Stoddart trays were cleaned at regular1
intervals and the septic tank sludge
run otf. The ditch from the plant to
the irrigating tract was also cleaned,
aud the sides weeded.
Plumbing permits issued totalled
17, 14 of which were for new connection ■ to the system.
By-Law No. 261
The road equipment purchased under By-Law No. 261, and consisting
of lock crusher, road roller, I-ton
truck, 30 h.p. electric motor, and
power grader, arrived in March, and
during this month the rock crusher
and motor were placed in position at
the city gravel pit. The placing of
this machinery and preparation of
the pit involved a considerable
amount of work, the main items be-
iiiif loading ramps, a portable shed
for the electric motor, the construction of a metal lined 4-compnrtment
rock bin, the necessary plunk runway
for trucks, 1000 feet of transmission
line and certain alterations to crusher. This work wus completed und the
crusher started on the 31st of March.
The nppenrance of the surface and
top layers of grave) in this pit wns
■mch that difficulty in obtaining rock
of sufficient conrseness for crushing
was not anticipated. It wns found,
however, after some weeks of crush-
Tng, that in the deeper underlying
irrnvels the proportion of conrse stone
wns so small thnt the crushed product
held too large a proportion of round
-.tone to be desirable, nnd the crushing plant was of necessity removed
to a new site nt un outcrop of rock
:n p'nee adjacent to the Shuerville-
Mission rond, on June 12th, where it
was re-erected and again started
crushing on June 29th, the time lost
in removal being 17 days.
The work done in connection with
this removal follows: 3G0O feet of
right of way was cleared for the
transmission line, and the same
length of line erected; the site for
the motor shed, crusher nnd bins on
,teep side hill, was excavated to solid
ground of sufficient area to erect the
plant, GOO feet of sidehill road was
graded. In moving, the elevator and
trommel were dismantled and reassembled, and subsequently a high
board fence and cribbing was built
to protect the plant when blasting.
Since its erection, a new set of
jaws has been purchased for Ithe
crusher, and for thc power grader a
set of scarifying teeth and a grader
blade. The grader has given excellent service.
By-Law No.  263 "
Side-walks were built us follows:
12-inch sidewalk with concrete curb
surfaced Tarvia mix, Baker Street.
2G0 feet; 10-inch sidewalk with concrete curb surfaced Tarvia mix, Hun-
son Ave.. 134 feet; Louis Street, 120
feet; Cranbrook Street, 130 feet.
Total 384 feet. 8-inch sidewalk with
concrete curb surfaced Tar mix,
Hanson Ave., 400 feet. 6-inch sidewalk with wooden curbs and surfaced
Tar mix, Armstrong Ave,-, Louis to
Edwards, 1200 feet; Edwurds Street,
Burwell to E. Pooley, 286 feet; total
I486. 0-inch ash sidewalk resurfaced
Tarvia mix, Hanson Ave., Louis to
S. Baker Lnne, 450 feet; old wooden
sidewalk replaced by gravel fill on
Van Horne, Edwards and Hyde
Streets, 474 feet. The length of concrete curb built totals 1054 lin. feet;
.he length of wooden inside and outside curbs, 335G lin. feet; the length
of Tarvia surfaced walk, 2990 lin.
feet, or 21,876 sq. feet of surface,
and the total length of old wood sidewalk torn up and replaced by the
above is 3004 feet. Attention may
be drawn to the fact that in the construction of these walks, thc amount
of cut and fill necessary to secure
grade wns heavy. On Cranbrook and
Edwards Street the amount of cut
wns considerable, and on each of the
other walks the amount of fill used
was large. Rock retaining walls were
also necessary on Baker Street and
on Armstrong Avenue adjacent to
Edwards Street. On this avenue it
was found necessary to break grade
slightly in order to avoid a fill of
over 2 feet in the central portion of
the block.
By-Law No. 262, Baker Street
In bringing Baker Street to grade
prior to construction, it was first
found necessary to remove excess
material to an approximate depth of
six inches over the width of the street
between Vnn Horne Street and Hnnson Avenue, and to make a very considerable fill nvcrnging one foot in
central depth over nearly 260 feet
nf street between Norbury and Fenwlck Avenues. Since the width of
this street is 7G feet, much extra
work was thus involved.
Tho street wns then scarified, and
a base of crushed rock applied with
the necessary filler for the preparation of thc sub-grade, followed by a
secondary or weuring coat of crushed
rock, 1 coat of Tarvia, a coat of fine
rock, hnnd screened to eliminate dust,
a second coat of Tarvia and a final
or blending coat of fine screenings.
Thc surface covered with 2 coats of
Tarvia was 83,000 sq. feet, over 1070
feet of road 76 feet in width, and
400 barrels of Tar were used. Thc
work was completed on AugUBt 7th.
Though 90 working days elapsed between the commencement of the work
and its completion, the actual time
taken was G5 days, 17 days being
employed in the removal of the
crushing plant to' its present site.
Further delay was also caused by the
lute delivery of a Tar kettle, which
on arrival was found to need alterations and the addition of screens,
which had not been provided.
Due in part to these causes, and
also to thc fact that the original estimates were based on the expectation thnt the crushed product would
consist of pit gravel, whereas, with
the exception of part of the street,
quarried rock was actually used, tho
costs wore greater than anticipated,
the cost of quarrying beta" naturally
added, and tho estimate exceeded by
approximately $300.
264 feet of 2-inch G.L pipe waa
also hud on Baker Street to one foot
of depth, for electric conduits for
future  wiring.
Edwards nnd Louis Streets were
graded, some cut and fill being necessary on the latter street, and crushed rock wns upplied over 6300 lin.
feet of road. Both streets are unfinished, nnd will need regrading,
rolling anil surfacing in the Spring.

We believe that the greatest opportunity of the present
generati. i to earn icuiarkableptulils existg to-day for Investots
through the purchase of French Government 6% bonds. These
securities rank as the pre-eminent -rUs* of French liovernment
bonds and are virtually a mortgage on the potential an.1 v.i«t
resources of lb • Republic of France. These bonds are valid
for thirty years alter date of rail und ihu interest coupons
payable June 16th and December 1'uii are valid for live jrears
after their respective due dales, thus enabling the investor to
cash them al any lime in the interval lhat the exchange rates
are in his favor. The higher the rate of tbe franc the more
Canadian dollara will Ihe Investor obtain for his interest-
coupons. Thus as the franc rises not only will the value of the
bonds iucrease but the interest-income will become greater uud
gi eater.
It will bc seen that ai the present r-ate of the franc the holder

Cranbrook, B.C.,
January 4th, 1927
To   His   Worship   the   Mayor,   and
Members of the Council.
Annual Report of Electrical Dept.
Gentlemen: During the year we
have purchased 814,800 k.w. hours
against 743,000, an increase of 71,*
800 k.w. hours.
The number of customers is 963,
against 906, on increase of 57 customers.
The work done during the year has
been the better lighting of Cranbrook Street, and putting the rest
of the city's lights under control of
switch; 6 additional lights were installed, on Garden Avenue (opposite
Bowley's residence); Hanson Avenue
(opposite Salvation Army); Watt
Avenue; Kain Street, between Watt
did Van Horne, and Van Horne between Kain ami Watt; also a new
light was nut on Pooley and Kain to
light up the bridge over the creek.
This required a pole and g"y».
A temporary 220 volt service was
given at brewery for rivctting work.
Luter this was taken down and permanent bank of transformers were
put up. A new bank of transformers
was built opposite tho foundry and
nn old one pulled flown,
A it-phase 220 volt line was run
from Kerrigan's to W. Pritchard'a
shop, but up to the present is not
connected. A 3-phase line was also
run from behind Dezall's Garage to
C.P.R, telegraph, over Yard office.
This required a 49-foot pole to go
over telephone lines and also a 30-
foot pole. A 2200 volt 3-phase line
was run from opposite Leask's store,
Slaterville, to old gravel put. This
work required the putting up of extra cross arms and lowering the existing secondary wires to put the high
tension lines on top, also 5 poles with
the putting up of transformers and
connecting up motor and starter.
This line was later extended to new
rock pit where right-of-way had to be
cleared and 18 poles erected and
cross arms put up, wire strung and
the necessary guying done, nlso taking down of transformers and installing in new location and connecting
up the motor ond starter.
All poles were inspected throughout the city and 18 poles were reset,
and 36 new ones were put up to replace old ones.
All transformers wen- inspected
and filled with oil and several of the
secondaries have been grounded.
96 meters were brought in for
Government inspector to test and 7
were condemned while 7 others have
bunit'tl out during tbe year.
202 street lights have been renewed and 14 street hoods repaired.
123 services were cut in and 89
cut off.
6 water services were thawed.
44 service leads were changed  .
The Works department shop was
wiretl for light and extension connected for workin" around trucks.
Three sets of lightning arresters
have been installed and the system
now has 4 complete sets and is fairly
well protected.
There have been no serious interruptions with the service aud all of
them have been with the power company- .     „
Our damage from storms is nil.
The following are tbe principal
purchases: 72 poles, 116 cross arms,
41.000 feet of wire.
We have also sold 421 pounds old
copper wire to the Cranbrook Found
ry und Machine shops.

The Watch Night services which
were held in the Salvation Army,
Baptist and United churches, to welcome in the New Year with prayer
and praise, were all well attended.
.That such services are even possible
in the midst of the usual orgy of
foolish revellings indicates that the
vital element of religion is not so
defunct as some would indicate. The
churches which held special services
on Christmas Day, and on Christmas
Eve, were also well filled with devout
worshippers. In a recent article by
Thos. Edison in the "Forum," the
talented inventor speaks of the arguments in favor of belief in the soul's
Immortality. These he declares are
stronger than those against such belief. To get a consensus of scientific and religious opinion on this he
advocates a "teaching church."
Along this line all progressive Christian churches are working at the present time. A visit to the churches in
Cranbrook will convince the sceptic,
that "moribund religion" is a thing
of thc past. In their various paths
all thc churches are striving to make
plain their belief in the reality of
God, and the immortality of the soul,
nnd by good works are making hard
lives a little easier nnd brighter.
+   +   +
Mr. J. M. Clark, of the "Y," reports that tbo funds of the Cranbrook Relief Association are now exhausted. Help has been given in
the way of clothing and meals to
many needy men, and to some families. Thnt this assistance be carried
on it is essential that subscriptions
be handed in at once. Mr. Clark
will see that the money is carefully
and wisely spent.

Owing to colds and the pressure
i of other engagements, the attendance
nt tlie United Church Young Peoples'
Society was not as large aB usual.
About twenty-five listened with keen
attention to the message which Mr.
McNeil, of the Baptist Church, presented on "The Meaning of Life."
He gave a summary of the position
of the biologist who declares that life
ill growth, and that of the physicist
who says that life is energy. Accepting these positions, he pointed
out that life Ib also serious, it in also
joyous, nnd it is in reality a spiritual
thing. Drawing illustrations from
literature, science, and his own experience, thc speaker drew the conclusion that life needed Cod to explain it fully, and thc companionship
<tf Christ to help up to live bravely
and hopefully. Mr, Buck thanked
tbe speaker for his well thought out
message. The next meeting will
take the form of a skating party.
The groups will meet at 7.46 at the
church and after skating will adjourn to the home of Mrs. F. Wooley,
where lots of good cats will bc provided.

Theodora Roosevelt's Nine Ration*
for Going to Church
1. In this actual world, a church-
less community, a community where
men have abandoned and scoffed at
or ignored their religious needs, is
a community on the rapid down
2. Church work and church attendance mean the cultivation of the
habit of feeling some responsibility
for others.
3. There are enough holidays for
6. He will hear a sermon by a
good man who, with his good wife,
is engaged all the week in making
hard lives a little easier.
6. He will listen to and take part
in reading some beautiful passages
from the Bible. And if he is not
familiar with the Bible, he has suffered a loss.
7. He will take part in singing
some good hymns.
8. He will meet and nod or speak
to good, quiet neighbors. He will
come away feeling a little more
charitable toward all the world, even
toward those excessively foolish ybng
men who regard church-going as a
soft performance.
9. I advocate a man's joining in
church work for the sake of showing
his faith by his works.

Ahout ten o'clock Sundny night,
January 2nd, two masked men with
rifles entered thc G.N. Station at
Eureka nnd commanded Frank Gregson, the operator, to throw up his
hands. Gregson immediately complied but kept talking to the bandits
and one of them fired, the bullet
penetrating his chest.
The station agent, who was asleep
in the next room, came running out
and the two robbers took to their
heels without securing a cent.
Medical aid was immediately summoned and Gregson was taken.to the
hospital where everything was done
to save his life but without avail.
He passed out the following Wednesday at 3 p.m.

Prices, though lower, are still, however,  at  a  favorable  level.
The current figures have been
worked out from estimates on volume
and with the assistance of market
quotations, and, in the case of lead
und zinc, of the rate of exchange.
Increased tonnage from the company's Sullivan mine accounts for
the increase in the lead, zinc and silver production, while the operation
of one copper furnace throughout the
year on concentrates from Allenby,
of custom ore from Copper Mountain,
brought copper once more into tonnage of importance, and ran up the
gold figures as well.
Zinc Biggest  Increase
A jump in copper production, from
under 1,090,000 pounds to 21,000,-
000, is the principal feature of the
table, though zinc, with a gain of
25,000,000 pounds, led the procession
of output gains. With both these
metals, the gain in output value was
very substantial. In the case of lead,
however, -which had to contend with
the largest proportionate decline in
price, and bad the least proportionate
gain in volume, though such increase
really amounted to millions of tons,
the gain in total value was but
As to prices, lead, which in 1926
averaged £36.429, taking the figure
from the Consolidated's annual report, has averaged the past year a
shade over i'Ul. Zinc declined less
drastically, from £80.024 per ton, to
a little over £114. London price. The
copper decline was from 14.02 cents
pre pound to about 18.7B. Silver,
after its rise in 1926 to 09,065 cents
per pound, considerably more than
lost its gain, sliding down to a. fraction over 02 cents on the past year

Why An  Anonymous Letter?

Editor, Cranbrook Herald,
Cranbrook, B.C.,
Dear Sir: Recently I received nn
anonymous  letter   moiled  at   Cranbrook with the following contents;
"Mr. Chas. Brown, Fernie, B.C.
Dear Sir: I  have been informed
that they are in want of a first class

Write to them.
The author of this letter, of whose
identity I am almost certain, is evidently unaware that I am no longer
following the lumber industry, and
while I am grateful for this recognition, I am completely at a loss why
this letter, apparently written in good
faith, should be signed thus.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for the
valuable space in your paper, I am,

Auxiliary  Steam Plant
Power for the concentrator and
the mine are derived from the East
Kootenay Power Company, but the!
Consolidated is now putting In a
$800,000 steam power plant of 4000 j
h.p. in connection with the concentrator, whicli will serve the purpose
of an auxiliary power source, while,
also serving as a heating plant.      j
Underground, the huge mining operations continue with little varia-
tion, every species of mechanical*aid
being used, while the ore trains rush!
out of the famous concrete-lined',
tunnel in a never-ending stream.

Big   Expectations at  Moyie

being in decline, has sprung to new

crating of thfl large mill established j

Eugene dump.   This mill is now sue-j
cessfully treating 500 tons per day of
old St. Eugene tailings, pumped out
of Moyie Lake by a 10-inch centrifugal suction pump. These tailings, that
.vere a waste product  formerly, ore
ifbw  valuable  for two   reasons—the
advance in the price of lead and sil-i
ver, and the for greater recoveries
that are possible with the processes
worked out by the Consolidated.   The
Moyie mill is conceded to be a moneymaker, and it is said that a remarkable' showing has been made.
Consolidateil history is repeating:
itself at Moyie. for usually the com-j
pany no sooner builds a fine plant,
supposed to be adequate for all needs,
than plans are enlarged, and extensions made. „\1 ready thia process has
stalled at Moyie, where a( coarse
crushing plant is being added to the
mil!, which will make it possible to
crush any Kast Kootenay dumps desired, including the Sullivan one, and
also nny other crude ore it may be
desired to treat.
A power line has been carried from
Kimberley to Moyie, an air distance
of 35 miles, to supply power to the
mill from the steam auxiliary power*
plant described earlier. ,
West Kootenay and Coast Mines
Rossland properties, for whose j
copper-gold ore the original plant of
the Trail smelter was built, though;
operated only on a small scale, have]
been the scene of some development
work and some mining continually '■
throughout the year.
The copper smelter at Trail has
been operated to the extent of one

by saying it would be in its grave inside of a year,
again prompts it to lake a rap at the Nelson News.
The Courier scores the News for an item which it
published under p Cranbrook date hue mentioning a
report that was current in the city to the effect
that only four beer licences were lo be granted in
the city, and further that the four in question had
already been selected. Something along the same
line was also published in the Herald last week,
and there is no apology lo offer for it, for the rumor
certain!) wa, current, reaching this office from a
dozen different sources, though, as .stated in this
paper last week, u i- difficult to say whether there
was any confirmation to be had. It was not categorically Stated that ther.* were to be four licenses
granted, bul that the current report was to this
effect, which is quite different. As i* • tlu* Courier's
further statement that no person concerned had yet
received any word on the matter, the hack page of
that paper had only last week an item to the effect
that changes were being made in hotel premises here
for the beer parlor, and the inference the ordinary
mind would take from such an item is certainly not
in accordance with its editorial statement. Another
item in the News whieh was complained of made
some mention of an open air rink in Cranbrook,
which was referred to editorially in the News, but
surely the Courier cannot labor linger the impression
that the editorial policy of the News is m any way
dictated from Cranbrook?
The New, makes mistakes, and ihe Herald holds
no brief whatsoever for ii. The Herald makes mistakes, and so also does the Courier—they are inevitable,   although   unintentional,   lint    there   is
ally, thc annual reports of thc various city departments which are published, contain a good deal of
interesting information [or those who will take the
trouble to peruse them. There is no indication
given of thc financial aspect of the various opera-
lions, but a bare recital of work carried out, bearing
with it some light on thc progress of the city generally, and its gradual development.
The works department report, fur instance,
shows to what capacity the water system has to be
maintained, and that a considerable volume of water
has to be held for use in the city. About nine
miles of grading was done on the city streets, nearly
a mile of sidewalks built, and iu addition all the
necessary hauling of material iu connection with
this work. Thc beginning of the hard-.-airfacing
program was carried out on the main street, and
sufficient was done tu indicate that this will be a
work of magnitude, whatever method is used to
carry it oui. Half-a-dozen varied city activities
come under the direction of this department, all
vital to the general conduct of the city.
The fire department report shows that in dealing with the fire hazard, which is ever-present, and
arises from such unlocked for causes, ihe only sensible policy is preparedness, It costs a goud deal of
money to maintain this department, but this fades
into insignificance when it is seen tliat the value
of the property at hazard from fire last year was
almost $200,000, and what the loss would have been
were there no adequate means uf combatting the
outbreaks iu the incipient stage, is hard to say, but
il would certainly have been a great deal more than
the actual loss recorded.
The electric light department will obviously lie
the money-maker of the public utilities,with a considerably increased consumption for the past year,
and a larger number of consumers than ever before.
While this is undoubtedly a most satisfactory state
of affairs, there instantly arises the conideration
whether there is justification lor maintaining light
and power rates at a higher level than will give adequate returns lor the expense that can be charged to
them. It may amount lo the same thing in the end,
but it means a little different distribution of the burden of rates and taxes in what would seem to be thc
fairer way.
The police report, dealing with a side of city
life that is seldom brought into proper perspective,
has also its bright side, when it records a noticeable
diminution in juvenile cases iu the city. If it is true,
as suggested in the report, that this may be traced
to an increased interest taken iu thc welfare of the
children of the city, and expressed in the form of
money expended for playgrounds and other facilities, then all the time, effort and means which have
gone in this direction, have been more than justified, and further outlays should be considered.
The work of tlu* city in all these directions presents an interesting study when looked at without
any parsimonious motives. Money must be spent
freely to carry it on, ami it is very easy for the taxpayer who sometimes has to struggle to pay his
levies to so focus his attention on the money, that
he can see nothing else back of it.

IF the Ottawa government intended to turn thc
administration of the Vancouver Harbor
Hoard to ridicule, it could not have gone
ahout it any more effectively than with the announc-
tnent of Messrs. J. (i. Turgcon and J. II. Buckham
as nominees for that body. It is worth noting that
the responsible heads of the Liberal parly at the
coast are unanimous in their condemnation of the
proposed appointments, and the province of Alberta,
supposed to have a big interest in the future of lhe
Pacific, port, is also scoffing at such a palpable political move. Many people in the Kast Kootenay district could shed light on the mention of the name of
Mr. Buckham in this connection, but thc consideration of the other suggested nominee is more difficult
to account for. his principal qualification apparently being that he has been a staunch party man. and

There is a slight increase of cases,

All the special pleading in the
world will not prove the killing of
Scott to be anything else thnn a
cruel, wicked and unnecessary crime.
Even had the deed been surrounded
by all judicial formality, circumstances were such as to force into
prominence the implication of buse
motives. It was stated to "ex-president" Bruce thnt "they would put a
couple to death before releasing the
"prisoners." It was known that Bishop Tache's influence was dreaded by
Riel on grounds of personal ambition,
and by O'Donoghue, whose aim had
been to sweep the insurrection into
the Fenian movement. Edward
Blake observed that the death of
Scott on the only charge proved
aguinst him, resolved itself into "personal revenge." Riel could not have
taken a surer step to give his enemies
a victory over him, writes Bcgg, than
when he committed the vile deed.
Amnesty Promised
Bishop Tache arrived on March
8th, and the palace at St. Boniface
was placed under guard. The aims
of Kiel and the influence of O'Donoghue at this point were difficult to
guage, beyond the fact that submission to Canada was no longer tolerated. The idea of negotiation as entertained by the Commission, writes
Bishop Tache, had been abandoned.
Armed resistance was contemplated.
Without prompt measures, wrote
Bishop Tache in 1875, something
more than an amnesty would hnve to
be dealt with. Sir John A. Macdonald, on February ltith, had promised
a general amnesty in accord with the
proclamation of December fith, if the
Company's government was restored.
Despite the execution of Scott in the
meantime, Bishop Tache pronounced
a complete amnesty, convinced that
nothing less would save the situation.
He was warned without delay by the
Canadian Government thnt they repudiated the responsibility. It is
impossible to admit, wrote the Colonial Secretary, that he he had any
sufficient ground for believing thnt
the ('rown or the Colonial Govern
ment acting for the Crown, did or
could delegate to him, or indeed to
anyone, an unlimited power of pardoning crimes of whatever atrocity
not even known to have been committed—January   7th,   1875.
There is evidence thnt Bishop
Tache was conscious of exceeding his
powers, but it must be urged that the
future welfare of his people depend
ed upon his decision, nnd thut the
Canadian Government repudiated the
responsibility only after the much-
contriving Sir John A. Macdonald
had secured nil tho practical benefits
of Bishop Tacho'fl assurance.
Secret Privilege!
Bishop Tache's influence was
quickly felt. The council, which met
at length on Mnrch 13th, was addressed by the bishop, at whose request, ns an act of grace, the liberation of prisoners was partially carried out on March Ifith. On March
18th   Smith  was  allowed   to  depart
already made by the convention, and
that a list of rights corresponding
with Judge Black's was issued in
French and dated March 23rd, 1870.
"Maison du Gouvcrnement" served
further to conceal the demand for
special privileges, lt wns on March
23rd that Pere Ritchot and Alfred H.
Scott left for Ottawa. Judge Black
followed on March 24th. "It was
through me that they received the
money for their travelling expenses"—Archbishop Tache. He could
afford it out of the three thousand
dollars granted for his return from
Rome. The arrangement of terms
thus passed to Ottawa. Riel was left
in control of the settlement.
Delegate*'  Visit
The negotiations at Ottawa began
in a storm of indignation caused by
the death of Scott. Two of the delegates were arrested. The government, whose sole object was the
peaceable acquisition of the country,
retained counsel for the defence and
secured their release. The delegates
were recived officially by the secretary of state as delegates from the
North-West, though it was seen that
"official recognition" was carefully
denied the Provisional government.
The Manitoba Act was passed on Mny
12th. As early as March 5th a joint
British and Canadian military expedition had been agreed upon for the
following summer.
The affairs of the settlement mny
be traced briefly from the departure
of the delegates. The council formally resolved "without regard to
the Crown of England," that a provisional government as "the only act
ihg authority in the conutrv'r was
necessary for the protection of life
and property, and that those who had
held office under the Governor ond
Couneii of Assiniboia be appointed
and empowered to act in their several capacities.—(The New Nation,
April  loth, 1870).
This, it may be noticed, wns the
arrangement under the Rupert's Land
Act of the Imperial Parliament which
McDougall had enjoined upon Gover-
nor McTavish in December. From
this point the settlement resumed
something of its normal appearance.
The New Nation began to fill Its columns with illuminating quotations
from Dr. Schultz and Charles Mair,
culled Irom Canadian papers. Annexation disappeared from its pages,
replaced by the laws of the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia.

Wage negotiations involving more
than ninety thousand men and wage
demands ranging from 10 to 12 cents
an hour, confront Canadian railways
in the opening weeks of this year.
One parley is proceeding, another dispute is the subject of a board of conciliation proceeding.-, and other negotiations will follow in due course.
Negotiations on operators' scale
were on at Winnipeg this week,
Messrs. J. F. Guimont, of this city,
nnd (J. M. Rosa, of Cnstlegu.', leaving on Sundny last for that place, to
represent this division in the parleys.
Negotiations have also opened
around the request of .15,000 mninten
ance of wny men un Canadian lines
for an increase of ten cents an hour.
Three representatives of the men are
meeting the wage committee of the
Railway Association of Canada ou
this matter and certain working conditions are nlso the subject of discussion.
Six thousand railway and steamship clerks employed hy the C.P.H.
requesting wage increases and
changes in working conditions. Their
request is now before a board of conciliation.
The pressing for wage increases
by the various classes of railway employees follows the compromise on
wages effected by the C.P.R. and C.
N.K. with conductors and trainmen
which averted a strike.
In a statement issued then, the
railways expressed the realization
that the wage concessions then mnde
might make inevitable consideration
of requests of other classes for
Home Road." Refreshments were
served nbout midnight. The dance,
which was well attended, closed in

Toronto, Ont.—Northern Ontario
has 2,000,000 square miles of mineral hinds, of which only 7 per cent
h«* been exploited; and yet this seven
pur cent, has already produced motalfl
to the value of a billion dollars. Such
was the summing up of George C.
Bateman, Secretary of the Ontario
Mining Association, speaking before
the Engineers' Club, "Twenty years
ago," he reminded his hearers,
"Northern Ontario was practically an
unknown wilderness. Today it is the
centre of a large and growing industry. Last year's metallic production
in that area ran to $60,000,000 or
310,000,000 more than the year before. Adjoining this land, in Northwestern Quebec, one sees the most intensive scientific prospecting the
world has ever known."

An Artist's View of the Rockies
Cathedral Mountain From the Yoho Valley
| eonard Richmond, R.B.A..R.O.L,
JLthe well known British artist is
among the latest to succumb to the
lure of singing the praises of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies. In Apollo,
4 magasine of the arts, Mr. Richmond writes of the Rocky Mountains
as one of tha most magnificent sights
of the world.
Towards the end of March 1925,
the artist made his first journey into
tht heart of Canada. He writes, "As
tho train advanced from Calgary, the
"Foothills" of the Rockies gradually
emerged in view, suggesting the
appearance of a body-guard, or
sentinels, guarding the sterner mountains beyond. .   ..  „
"It Is not expedient or desirable for
ine to describe in detail the emotional
ascending scale that my feelings
experienced as the train approached
the actual Rockies themselves. It is
enough to state that my highest
Imaginative thoughts had never visualised ao much impressive force and
dignity as those austere mountains
conveyed that late afternoon in
"The general color on tbat particular afternoon wns monotone In
effect. I have not Hcun any Japanese
wood-cut print that equalled tbe
superb draughtsmanship of thu finely
designed groups of line trees which
were almost black in tint, contrasting
sharply against the virgin snow.
'Tbe mountains of Canada Bupgest
many forms of expression for artists.
Lc. that respect they are probably
unique. The intellectually endowed
modern painter has scope enaugn to
create works of art, based on thu
innumerable suggestions of dynamic
force, grim tragedies of form rau?ed
by ancient volcanic eruptions, mir
occult feelings, too, can be awakeneu
by close contact and communion
with the soul of the mountains.
"It ts impossible for any artist to
sketch more than a fraction of such
a vast area of varied subjects. Onee
the artist is situated right in the
mountains there is no occasion to seek
for subjects or to walk any distance
for desirable views. There is something Interesting to paint from any
"Some of the most interesting
pictures that I have seen recently of
the Rockies are those where thu
artist has improvised in colour and
form on the original theme in nature.
By this means Nature ean he made to
look more natural in a picture and
the artist's thoughts cun be crystallised   into  positive  expression."
Mr. Richmond, who painted a
number of beautiful views, stales that
although Lakes Louise, O'Jl ara,
Moraine, and Kmerald are famoiiH in
tbo lake world of Canada, he was
intrigued by the smaller sisters, I.a lie
Mirror and Luku Agne.t, known as
the 'Lakes in the Clouds," above
Having taken over the business known as the
Pine Tree, formerly owned by Miss A. Duncan, the
undersigned takes this opportunity of soliciting the
continuance of the patronage extended to her predecessor, and assures all old and new customers the best
