Of main interest in the past week
has been the intimation that Hon.
E, L. Pntenaude would leave the
provincial house to seek for federal
honors. The seriousness of the federal situation is the factor wliich is
influencing Mr. Pntenaude. lie hns
a large following not only in Montreal but. throughout tho province. A'
man of recognized ability, a former
minister who threw up his portfolio
on a question of principle, he will be
the most outstanding figure in the
province. Arthur Snuve, the provincial Conservative leader and his fid-
lowers will doubtless take some part
in tho coming campaign, (bus healing the bleach which has existed for
a long time between the two sections
of the party in Quebec. The principles which Mr. Sauvo and his parly
have Inid down arc identical with
those which the Rt. Hon. Arthur
Meighen  has enuneinted.
Mr. Suuve has in and out of season pleaded for protection for the
farmer against American potatoes,
tomatoes nnd other foodstuffs. His
county, Two Mountains, is particularly affected by the inroads of American farm produce nnd he can
hardly remain neutral when such an

bault, J. C. Walsh and Thomas Vien
lias created a profound  impression.
The Liberals here nre nlso unfortunate in their lendership. Hon. H.
.1. A. Cardin is managing everything
in the Montreal district and is displaying dictatorial tactics with the
result that there is much dissatisfaction. The members of the lust parliament object to holding conventions and giving other Liberals an
opportunity of testing feeling and
signs of rebellion against this display of "vested rights*" tendencies
are to be noted on all sides.
Iu a statement announcing his entry into the federal arena, Mr. Patenaude said that a government
without a majority hnd for four
years aggravated from yenr to year
the general uneasiness. Surprises
of a policy without direction, he said,
had sapped the energies and stopped
thc development of the nation.

more difficult to bear; the exodus of

of Cranbrook's citizens was saddened

Saturduy night, between midnight
und 1 a.m., the family were aroused
by thc boy, who had got up opponent- j
ly suffering from un upset stomach.
The following morning medical aid
was sought, and at 11 a.m., upon being examined, a swelling under the
jaws and a drowsiness were the only
indications of anything being wrong,
there being no sign of fever, to
cause any alarm. On that afternoon
the boy gradually got worse, and by
six o'clock had passed away.
The case, according to thc doctor,
is one of exceptional rarity.
It is thought that the boy possibly
on Friday or Saturday hud scratched
one of the sore places on his neck,
and that blood poisoning had started

After a ten day trip to Calgary
by motor, T. M. K. Stewart and Fred
W. Burgess returned to the city on ■
Monday last. Going hy Windermere,
stops were mnde at Windermere and
Banff, and then on to Culgary, where
the races were taken in, fortune
smiling on them when it cnme to
picking winning steeds. On their
return journey snow wns encountered 15 miles east of Cochrane and
held for a long distance through the
mountains. Despite this fact, Bnnff
and Lake Louise apparently had lost
none of their charm, ns thc visitors
were still there in large numbers,
and like the members of the Crnnbrook pnrty, all were taken with thc
magnificence of thc scenery at both

The sympathy of many friends
was extended to the bereaved parents in the painful affliction thnt
snatched from them their dear one
practically before they realized he
was gone—a boy just at the budding
age, bright, likeable, and one in
whom all the hopes of a fond father
and mother were centred.
Geno wus a member of Miss Mc-
Caslin's class, Grade VI, Central
School, to which class, he passed in
July with honors for regularity und
punctuality. His young classmates
feel keenly the loss of their friend,
a token of their sympathies being a
large wreath, which was purchased
through their contributions.
Besides the parents t here arc
brothers and- sisters in the family,

took place, the body bcing taken
from the family residence to St.

In referring to thc death of the
young boy, Father Murphy drew attention tO the dying flowers and the
falling leaves, ns if nature was in
sympathy with the mourners. The
whole of nature seemed saddened by
the taking off of the young life.
While the sympathy of the whole
community would go out to the bereaved parents nnd relatives, he
would ask them to look to the flowers and the trees, robbed of their

they were dead, but next year they
would come to life again. So with

This was the teaching of Christianity
nnd the hope of all believers. AH
who have come to the age of reason,
as this boy had, knew right from
wrong, and he knew thnt he had
merited   the   happiness   of   heaven.
A large funeral cortege, composed
of many friends of thc family of
the deceased, ns well as a large number of the scholars from the Central school, followed the remains,
showing much sorrow at thc departure of their little friend.

Holiday Trip to Calgary
purty enndidute in the Mast Kootenay riding, and Hon. II. 11. Stevens,
of Vancouver, h former minister of
trade and commerce in the government of Hon. Arthur Meighen. The
meeting had boen arranged hurriedly, the locul committee not having
any knowledge of Mr. Steven.-' coming till three days beforehand, bul
even at that short notice, there were
not mnny vncnnt seats in the IC, P.
hull, the audience including a number from out of town points who
had braved the Unpleasant night to
hear the .speakers of the evening.
A. J. Balment, president of the local association, acted as chairman
for the evening, nnd after some introductory musical numbers while
the audience was gathering, played
by Messrs. Bruce Robinson and It.
W. Kdtuondson, the speakers were introduced by Mr,  Balment.
Dr. Rutledge was given a very
good reception, and was listened to
very attentively, while for about an
hour he Inid down the principles
upon which he was standing, and
his speech wns exceedingly well received and wns commented on very
After welcoming Mr. Stevens t(j
this city in a few well chosen words.
Dr. Rutledge said that the party who
had heen in charge of the ship of
state for the past four years wet-
now asking for endorsement, and
the electors were placed in a respon-
ihlc position -having to choose r
sound pnrty with a sound policy,
Canada with it.s resources should unquestionably have great possibilities,
instancing the immense wheat area,
timber areas, silver and copper deposits, and he did not consider it
proper for these to bo plundered by
a foreign country, and Bhlpped out
as raw material. Me urged the electors to he fair, and take into account
the all-round conditions at present
found iu the country.
Canada's recovery from the war
compared to other Countries, had heen
slow. The national debt had been
added tit, and taxes increased accord'
ingly. Thc Liberals hud decried
against extravagance in 1021, but
had done nothing to prevent it, for
the national debt was going up still,
and while other countries wore reducing their debt, Canada was still
increasing hers. As instances of the
reckless spending he instanced n
grant of ?;"i,l)0n.000 to Quebec harbor, when then' was already un expenditure of twenty millions there,
on which not a cent of interest was
heing paid; an eight million dollar
bridge at Montreal, when the board
of trade there had said that a quarter
of a million dollars spent on the
xisting bridge would have been
ample; another eight millions on the
wuter front at Toronto had been
spent which was not absolutely neces-
sary; similarly ? 1,1100,000 had been
spent on an elevator at Prince Rupert
for a grain trade there that did not
yet exist, and which would in effect
compete against Vnncouver where
millions were heing spent; (100,000
had been spent on the golf links at
Jasper pnrk, and while some of these
expenditures might be deemed ncces-
ary, where economy was so essential,
it was surely necessary to go slowly.
While mentioning the greut possibilities of the country, of which agriculture was one, Dr. Rutledge pointed
out that no country could ever become great through that line of development alone. Industries must be
stimulated and built up, nnd with
manufactories closing their doors,
the young people were being forced
to leave the country, 400,000 having
crossed into the United States, and
only 320,000 entering Cunada in that
time. "Canada cannot be built up
that wny," said Dr. Rutledge, and the
government was responsible for driving the people over the border.'
Showing how the United States
had raised its tariff against Canada
in many items, Dr. Rutledge quoted
figures to show how, while comparatively small amounts were paid for
the Canadian raw materials taken
into the United Stutes, the manufactured goods from these products
were worth many times moro, and
Canada was losing as a result of huvlng these supplies shipped out of
the country to be manufactured. To

| Petitions are being widely eircu
latcd in Cranbrook asking the provincial government to grant tt plebiscite
on the sale of beer by the glass in
this city. To circulate such a petition is the privilege of any citizen.
Tn -sign such a petition i.s to become
responsible for entailing upon the already overburdened taxpayer the
serious expense uf a plebiscite on a
question which was given an emphatic
answer at the polls only a little over
a year ago. Al that time thc voters
of Cranbrook by a substantial majority said, "We do not want the sale
of In er by the gla>-s."
Hut the Cranbrook Board of Trade,
nevertheless, takes the responsibility
of joining with those who are asking
fi.]1 nnothor plebiscite, Let it not
be implied that there is any assumption that the Board of Trade is in-
jf sympathy with higher hu-
in arguments, if, for the mo-
■ question be considered only
financial aspects.

the, general public, of whom the
brewers ffnd liquor sellers arc "a very
small percentage, Of the money that
goes into heer from the public, only
that same proportion finds its wny
into the channels of general trade,
or just so much more than this as
tliat class may live in more expen-
she manner than the average public.
This is a matter of mnthemntical
iilion. The grocer, the
butcher and the clothier must make
their trade with just what is left ufter
the beer trade has taken its toll. Collections will he just that much harder. Is not this the experience of
Klmberloy? Have not business men
of that town repeatedly expressed
their difficulty of making collections
since the "liter parlors" came in?
Cranbrook looks to the Board of
Trade to give sound financial and
business leadership at least, und not
lo be stamped by an interested class
at the expense of the community as
n whole, Wc are being asked to petition for a plebiscite which in any
case must bear still more heavily upon the taxpayer, and which, should
the already expressed wish of the
people be reversed, will favor financially a small class of the community at nn expense of the whole in the
maintenance of law and order, the
upkeep of jails, the cost of courts
and the disqualifying of labor by
Irunkonmss which can hardly be estimated.
For ihe well-being of our citizens,
the security of travel, thc reputation
f our town, the peace of our streets,
the moral well-being of our youth,
the Board of Trade would surely not
leny some responsibility, but these
ire not directly financial questions?

camps we ever had," said T, 11. Moffatt, regarding the outing of the Alpine Club of Canada, at Lake
O'Hara, this summer. Thc weather was ideal and
there was work for ull classes to do, hikings to Lukes
McArthur and Oc.su, and to the Opabin Pass. Then
shorter climbs were available for tho graduates, such
ma Shafer and Odaray, The moro seasoned climbers
had Hulier, Victoria, Lefroy aud Hunabce.
The high mountains were in a better condition this
year than they have ever heen before owing to tho
scarcity of ice. From fid to (JO members were out every
day climbing, the two duys' trip over tho pusses being
very popular. Through the courtesy of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, which placed its hut, situated at the
top of tho Abbot Puss, at the disposal of the members,
the work of climbing wus greatly facilitated.
The annual business meeting of the Club was held
at Lake O'Hara Camp on August fith. This was an
auspicious occasion, for Captain MacCarthy, leader

of the purty, were present. The business of the Club
wus transacted In the morning: at ten o'clock, under
the large gly on the shores of Luke O'Hara. No
setting for the occasion—that of welcoming Capt.
MacCarthy and his party—could have been more
appropriate than amid the superb peaks that surround
O'Hara. Flags of various nations were strung between the trees of this primeval forest in which the
camp was pitched, this being the Club's owu property,
which Mr. Wheeler, Its director, secured as fur back
as 1907. The scene was u festive one, thc whole
atmosphere, despite the serenity of these inajefitio
peaks and lake, waa one of joviality and every one
was in particularly good spirits.
Captain MacCarthy wus elected a honorary member of tho Club, not wholly on account of the Mount
Logan ascent, but on other grounds as well, for he
was recognized long before this as an outstanding
mountaineer. Votes of thanks were extended to the
Canadian Pacific Railway and various departments

Southern Alberta is Beekeeper's Paradise
___■ In Genrgt- Rie-del'a
ApUry In tht  Coaldale
Lower— A colony of Been
la ib* Rlcdel Apiary.
Southern Alberta's irrigated districts, with their large fields of
alfalfa and sweet clover, promise to
become the beekeeper's parudise
within the next five years.
Two years ago, less than 10,000
pounds of honey were produced in
Alberta. Last year, 60,000 pounds
were produced — and 32 carloads imported into the West to supply the
demand. This year, on the C.P.R.
irrigated project at Lethbridge, there
will be produced more than 100,000
pounds. And this is just a start.
"Southern Albeita's irrigated districts will be shipping trainloads —
not carloads—of honey to the markets within five years" declared Frank
C. Pellatt, field editor cf the American
Bee Journal, Hamilton, Illinois, on
the occasion of his visit to Southern
Alberta late in July this year. "This
is the greatest potential honey producing district in North Ameiica."
Today, one apiarist in the Coaldale
district on the C.P.R. irrigated project has 600 colonies of bees. Thi'
man, C. George Riedel, came to
Southern Alberta from California in
the spring of 1924 and started with
300 colonies.    In 1926 he will have
1800 colonies nnd will make more
than 150 tons of honey. This year
his bees will make him about 50 tons,
I and one wholesale firm having
I branches throughout the West is
1 handling the whole outpat.
Each eclony of bees makes nbout
200 pounds in a season, though one
colony  at   the   Lethbridge   Expert*
mental Farm broke all records for
Canada by making 472 pounds in tha
season of 1923. A record of 21 pound!
in one day by one colony was made
in 1923 when the bees at the Expert-]
mental Farm averages 189 pounds for j
the season, the high record for thi)
year at the experimental _ farms'
across Canada.

Dominion Government's Record
of Progress and Achievement
The Mackenzie King government
comes to thc country with a proud
record of high achievement. Upon
assuming power nearly four years
ago, it found agriculture prostrate,
trade languishing, falling revenues,
an unfavorable balance of trade and
our dollar worth eighty-five cents,
Today agriculture is In a flourish-
ing condition. Farm and domestic
trade have alike expanded. We have
a favorable balance of trade, The
Canadian dollar Is now worth one
hundred cents in -every market. Busi-
has expanded and a measure of relief from taxation, tariff und otherwise, has been afforded the consumer without injury lo thc great manufacturing interests in the country.
The .steady stream of emigration
to the United States, which exceeded
71)2,000 persons during the Burden*
Meighen regime, has been checked.
With improved conditions in Canada
many thousands of expatriated Canadians are returning to their native
land. Wholesale immigration of undesirables has been sternly discount-
nanced. Instead, a well-considered
policy of soleitive ond directed immigration has been adopted.
Wasteful extravagance of the pub
lie rvenue has been replaced by rigid
economy in every branch of the public service. Trade treaties within
and without the empire have more
closely knit our inter-imperial ties
and have guided Canadian exports
to rich markets of the world hitherto undeveloped. Taxation has been
reduced and the cost of living lowered. The wounded and disabled
soldiers has been given humane and
generous treatment, and no less consideration has been accorded the dependents of our m|en who fell in
battle or died from illness or injuries
contracted in the service.
A spirit of notional unity has replaced discord and suspicion. Moreover, the government of today is
hopeful, optimistic nnd proud of Canada. It does not cry "stinking fish."
It is not driving the Canadians out
of the country by telling them they
will be more prosperous in another
land. It does not stop intending
American settlers at the border and
warn them Canada will soon be depopulated, nnd that one-third of our
people favor annexation to the United
During its tenure of office thfe
Mackenzie King government has unified the National railways into one
great system which corns every year
a large surplus over operating expenses. It has unified the far-flung
provinces of our great dominion. For
the first time since confederation
every province has been represented
the King cabinet. It has protected
the homes of our people by drastic
suppression of illicit traffic in narcotic drugs and intoxicating liquors,
and other social wal fare measures.
It has increased the prestige of Canada in spite of thc misdirected efforts
its political opponent-- whose
dreary pictures of Canadian desolation hnve too often adorned the pages
of the forvign press.
The government believes in Cunada. It appeals with confidence to
the high courage and dauntless spirit
of the Canadian people. It rejoices
in the sunshine of returning prosper-
It does not fear the croakers,
the birds of ill-omen, who see nothing ahead of us but ruin and disaster.
It submits in no boastful spirt but
with pardonable pride its record of
When Mr. Meighen loft the premiership of Canada, he handed over
to his successor a tremendous legacy
of national deht. Dining the ten
years the Conservative purty hud
been in power, there was added to
the national debt <>f Canada the en-
lire capital cost of the war, the entire cost of demobilization nnd about
$170,000,1)00 in addition. The government of which Mr. Meighen* was
a member made not the slightest effort during the progress of thc war
to pay any part of it. They borrowed
money on the credit of the country
and added to tht

for the first time since 1023,
In the fiscal year 1020-21, the
debt increased by $02,010,000.
In the fiscal year 1021-22 when
the present administration was only
thrde months in office, the debt
showed nn increase of ¥81,000,000.
The following year the Mackenzie
King government had to meet a vast
number of obligations which had been
left by the previous administration.
The public debt Increased, but
only by $30,000,000, a drop of $50,-
000,000 on the increase of the previous year.
For the year 1023-24 revenue met
expenditure nnd there wns a balance
on the right side of $35,000,000.
An estimated cut was promptly
made in tuxes for the succeeding yeur
amounting to  $20,000,000.
In 1924-25, notwithstanding reduced taxation, tho surplus of revenue over expenditure for govVrn-
ment service amountd ten $4,810,000,
Tht railroad problem of Canada
was tnken hold of with vigor and
energy. Whnt wns needed most was
a competent man to put in charge
of all the government railways and
to get rid of the three or four organizations which were operating
them during Conservative regime.
To select any man from one of
tho old organizations to run the consolidated railway would have been
a mistake. The government secured
Sir Henry Thornton, the most outstanding railway expert available.
During tHe two or three years he hus
been in charge of the Canadian National railways he has justified hit
appointment beyond all question.
The year ending December 31st,
1021, the last of the Meighen administration there wns a new deficit
from railway operations of all lines
now embraced in the Canadian National system amounting to $11,543,-
For 1022, the first yenr of thc
King administration the deficit of
the preceding year had been changed
to a surplus of $2,886,711.55.
Sir Henry Thornton had only been

fruits of his management in the short
time elapsing before the close of that

J. S. Dennis, of Montreal, chief commissioner of colonization" nnd development of that company, who at a
meeting of over fifty of the settlers
and residents of the Lake Windermere district outlined thc purposes

the wonderful success which hnd
crowned the work of some already
in existence on the prairies. He said
that the C.P.R. was carrying on an
extensive colonisation plan along
with another railway and that one of
thc corner stones wns to take care
of the newly arrived settlers and that
this would he one of thc purposes of
the newly established body. To aid

THE issues uf the campaign mnv in progress are
so clear-cut us to throw out a sharp challenge to
all who take- pride in thinking things out to n logical
conclusion. On the one hand there i-. the Liberal
campaign of apology, excuse and subterfuge, with a
protective policy for the east, free trade for the prairies ami a pol pourri of them both For B.C. On the
other hand stands the Conservative policy, the same
today as in 1911, and never lo--l sight of during the
war years, only laid aside while other and bigger
issues transcended il a sane policy of a protective
tariff, designed for the greatesl good for the greatest number and elastic enough tor the varying interests of I In- entire country. It was the policy to
which the people mined so strongly in 1911, ami
which resulted in building thc industry of the country up so dial when iln- strain of the war years
came ils financial and commercial resources were a
source of admiration in lbe eyes of lbe world, no
less than the manhood which responded so freely lo
tbe cause. The country had struck a determined
war stride at Un- end of four years when the armistice came, and (lie public generally failed to realize
the magnitude upon which tilings wen- being dune in
1918, and an impatience arose when things did nol
immediately relax into a peacetime atmosphere.
The men wen- demobilized and repatriated faster
than the industrial enterprises which had been conscripted could be diverted back In Ibeir former status. But the ureal difference was that there was
still a desire to beep up ihe wartime momentum of
trade in peacetime lines, ami lhe government of the
day, proceeding with caution, was thought to be dilatory in dealing with these issues.
Then came tbe change. The Liberal government took over lhe responsibility of settling the
country down to normal. It did iu fact, a little more
than thai. Under the regime of Mackenzie King il
is felt thai the country has gone back to sub-normal,
In spile of the Canadian dollar being at par again;
iu spite of the subterfuges employed iu endeavoring
to show lhal lhe national debt has been decreased,
and tbat the national railways are now paying their
way, in spite of exports which are said to be increasing, and beueficient trade treaties said to have been
introduced; in spile of all Ibis and whatever else the
government has laid claim to accomplishing iu tlie
past four years, Ihe country al lhe present time is
unsettled iu an economic sense, business is not functioning al ils best, and people are still leaving lhe
country faster than they are coming in.
How can il be otherwise when there is no
unity or cohesion in the government policy? lu
the east the Premier says they want nu more entangling alliances with lhe Progressives. He goes
further, and tacitly admits that he has been sadly
tied during the past four years and hence could nol
have been iu a position lo have done what be deemed
wisest for the country, when he says lhat if one
election does not bring him a clear majority, be will
immediately go lu the country again. On the prairies the Progressive leader says on his part there
can be no bargain or barter with the Liberals. Yet
in some western ridings there are partisans of both
who understand so little of what tlieir leaders incorporate in their programs that they will unite
their force*, to face a four-square Conservative candidate. This is tbe case in the West Kootenay, Calgary, Lethbridge, the Island and elsewhere, and
goes tu prove that lhe Conservatives stand out iu
relief today as the party with the clear-cut and settled policy, that will stand examination in tlie light
of conditions found anywhere in tlie country. Can
thc Liberal policy on Ibe tariff stand this test?
Docs the narrow Progressive viewpoint measure up
to it? That i.s tbe reason why under the Conservative banner today, in B.C., the east aud on the prairies, are found men who have been iu public life before; who have bail the franchise uf their neighbors
entrusted to them before; men of tried experience,
who are standing today on the same principles they
stood for years ago. Run through lhe B.C. ridings
and note who the Conservative candidates are. Every sitting Conservative member iu the province has
been re-nominated, and all through tbe country arc
seen names of outstanding men who are willing to
make the stand (or Conservative principles, ami who
as far as tlie adaptability of these principles to national conditions go, could as well stand in tbe mari-
times, the prairies, or the west. Mr. Meighen himself scorns to seek a safe riding, but goes back to his
old battle ground of Portage La Prairie, a fine example uf confident courage that thinking people feel
is something more than merely spectacular. In
Quebec itself, hotbed of Liberalism, Hon. E. L. Pa-
tenaude, erstwhile union government minister, who
broke away un a matter of policy, comes back witli
a desire tu align himself again witli the Conservative party, now thai conditions bring back to the
forefront the former Conservative policy of protection of Canadian markets for Canadian industries,
and the development of Canadian resources liy Canadians for the primary good of the Canadian people.
It is a situation tliat challenges the silent,
thinking elector, ami one that no amount of argument or apology can alter in its fundamentals, It
is the Liberal policy for the past four years that is
un trial, ami weighing il  in  the balance with the
program uf reform and improvement to be inaugurated by the Conservatives, there is little doubt bul
lhat the Mackenzie King government will he adjudged wanting.

MR. G. G. McGeer, who is opposing H. H. Stevens in Vancouver Centre in the federal elections,
is nothing if he is not ambitious. He is well known
as the special pleader uf B. C's cause in the fight
fur equalized freight rates, employed un thi.s mission
in his legal capacity by the provincial government.
That he is a red-hut enthusiast in this cause is alsu
well known, though this is somewhat discounted by
the fact that it is not difficult lo become enthused in
a crusade that reaps such harvests for its knights
errant as this essay into the lists on behalf of better
freight rales, ll has been aptly pointed out that
Mr. McGeer has a favorably inclined governmenl at
Victoria behind him; another government of tin-
same hue. presumably equally favorable to bis cause,
at Ottawa. What more will he be able to do, therefore, even iu the remote eventuality of his lieing
elected to the Dominion House? Ile was never
heard to raise bis voice so vociferously iu thc cause
of freight rates prior to 1922, or thereabouts, when
he was retained by the provincial government on
lhat behalf, but has now made bis twenty-ninth trip
to Ottawa in an effort to get what some people evidently regard as being more than justice for the
wesl, and it would not seem unlikely that another
twenty-nine may be necessary before the dawn of
tbe McGeer millennial era arrives.
Parallel to the freight rales question lias
gone that of thc development of the port uf Vancouver, in which this city has bad au especial interest. One would have thought that lhe two questions would have worked themselves out together,
as it were, tt is therefore worthy of comment that
Mr, McGeer finds it necessary lo endorse one of
his opponent's planks in this campaign, which is
nothing less than the promise of a complete re-organization of the harbor board of Vancouver. More
than lhat, there is the strange spectacle of Mr. McGeer, in his private capacity as a lawyer, acting in
thc interests of one of tlie elevator lesees there in
a suit againsl the harbor board. What is lhe trouble witli tlie harbor board lhat these threats against
il are necessary, and why does not Mr. McGeer rise
up and declaim against it in a righteous fervor llial
has characterized his utterances in regard to the
freight rates? If there is something lhat needs rectifying, why is it not necessary tu have it rectified
now instead of waiting?
Mr. McGeer has a very ambitious program to
carry out if be is elected, aud one whicli lhe eastern
people will look on wilb admiration—at the nerve
thai can conceive lliese huge projects, which after
all mean the expenditure of eastern money very
largely for the prime benefit of lbe west. Mr. McGeer promises, if elected, to press fur Canadian National terminal facilities iu Vancouver; a Canadian
National hotel in Vancouver, ami lhe completion of
lhe line into the Peace Kiver, as a feeder for thc National lines. This little program involves, it will be
seen, the expenditure uf many millions uf dollars,
ami apart from the merit ur otherwise of lbe items,
il illustrates the futility uf pushing a program lhat
will antagonize and inflame one part uf the country
againsl another, instead uf trying lu harmonize and
unify. Incidentally it is worthy of note that the
Conservative program oil tlie freight rates is tu
plaee the entire matter iu the hands uf the railway
hoard, subject onlv to the usual parliamentary restrictions; in other words, it is for rational demands,
backed up by the proper procedure.

4 majority uf five hundred votes fur Dr. King is
predicted liy a Liberal source in the riding.
That represents pretty good work on the part of
lhe supporters of Dr. Rutledge, when the riding held
by a cabinet minister can in such a short lime be
reduced to the point where a paltry two hundred
aud fifty votes will turn lhe seat. A month remains
yet before the election, and if a seat that was at onetime deemed impregnable can already be reduced to
a majority of only five hundred, it goes without
saying that four weeks more will see that five hundred turned intu an adverse vote. It reminds one of
lhe Liberal majority predicted on polling day iu the
last provincial election, whicli dwindled before tin-
votes were counted till it became a substantial Conservative majority. That five hundred majority is
simply a case of whistling to keep up tlie courage;
au expression of what the heart desires but dares
not hope for.

There wns no doubt that many
people had made up their minds to
change over at this election. The
recent elections in the marl times
proved this, nnd there was no doubt
but that the Conservatives would
get twenty or thirty seats in the province of Quebec.
To the returned men Dr. Rutledge
said he was strongly in favor of all
legislation to hetter the conditions
of the disabled men, thc widows ami
liiOO, and after this time it had li
renewed by both governments. As
to zinc, Mr. Stevens said there was
(no duty on zinc at tho present time,
and instead of Dr. King being able
to claim credit for the development
of this industry in the East and West
Kootenay, it should go to the Consolidated Company, who worked out
the process, and the era of high zinc
prices that made it profitable. Mr.
Stevens recalled that twenty years
ago most of the copper from the
Britannia mines was smelted by a
plant at Ladysmith. The situation
was now changed, and it all went to

diet on election day. If they be- world's supply of raw material believed that the conditions which the! ing owned by Canada. Ho also op-
government had imposed were in the posed strenuously the export of pow-
best interests of tho country, then
it was for them to support his opponent; but if they believed otherwise, they should as readily support
him. Rounds of cheering were given
to Dr. Rutledge when he finished his
Mr. Stevens in an eloquent address, after welcoming the ladies
particularly nt the meeting and congratulating Dr. Rutledge upon being
given thc honor to contest such an
important sent in B.C., devoted much
time to a criticism of the speech Dr,
King had made at thc time of hip
weak points nnd the inaccuracies in
thnt statement. Dr. King being a
minister of the crown, it was quite
legitimate to offer criticism of nny
public statement  he might make.
Mr. Stevens reiterated hi:
ding  faith   in  the  country
er to the United States, taking the
stand that if power was needed the
plants should be put nt the site of the
power in Canada.
In regard to senate reform, Mr.
Stevens said thHt this was a hardy
annual, which Bounded very catching, but the King government had
not suggested any practical measures
of reform, and it should be remembered that the senate is one of the
fundamental institutions in the government of the country, and any
proposed change would have to be
considered carefully. He depreciated loose talk against the senate, for
had it not been the custodian nf thc
rights of the people?

of the people. It was now a time
for stocktaking, nnd if the people
did not ponder these questions they
were not to be considered good citizens. Mr. Meighan was not on trial
nt this time, he reminded his hearers, it was Premier KinK and Dr.
King who were facing the people,
and it was for them to explain what
they had done in the last four years,
1910, and which the Liberals had in
that day decried as "Stevens' white
elephant." Not one bushel had yet
gone through the elevators which Dr.
King claimed credit for having built
In reference to Dr. King's assertion that the national debt had been
reduced by eleven millions, Mr. Stev-
ns suggested that even if this were
. well as what they hoped to do in true, it was not much to boast of
when lhe aggregate debt was shown
lo be not less than $2,417,000,000 at
the present time. As a matter of fact
thi' official figures showed only a
reduction of six millions, and to this
should l»' added the guarantees mado
to the national railways, which were
not figured in the national debt by
(the present government. It had been
the policy of tht former government
j to pay the railway deficits in cash,
or borrow for the purpose and add
the figures to the national debt, and
the bonds or notes which the King
government guaranteed should undoubtedly be considered a part of the
national debt. He had taken this
stand in the house, and made the assertion to Hon. Mr. Robb, minister
of finance, thut if such misrepresentation were made in the ordinary
course of business the perpetrator
would be likely to land behind the
bars. Including therefore the railway deficits which the government
was guaranteeing, it was clear that
lhe deficit they were responsible for
in the past four years was not lews
The simile Dr. King had used in
speaking of the national railways as
"Babies left on the doorstep" of the
present government, Mr. Stevens
showed was not a very happy one,
and he procedeed to trace back the
history of the lines that now constitute the national system, proving that
they were authorized and mostly completed under the Liberal regime of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who had personally pleaded for them in parliament,
and the cost of them, moreover, as
Mr. Stevens showed, was many millions more than the original estimates
ubmitted. As to the statement that
the national linos were now paying
their way, this was true only insofar
as the operating charges were concerned, and that if the fixed charges
were considered, the boasted surplus
f $10,000,000 would be chnrged
into a deficit of $65,000,000.
Dr. King had said thnt his opponent, Dr. Rutledge was on this occasion "backing the wrong horse,"
but Mr. Stevens made a more powerful simile when he asserted that the
Liberal government was plunging
here aud there like a "riderless horse
running wild, with neither bit nor
bridle," and if the Liberal policy was
lo be regarded to a safe chart, as
Dr. King suggested, to Mr. Stevens
it wns clear from the drifting policy
followed, that they could have no
As to the emigration from Canada
ilurlng thc past four years, Mr. Stevens said the figures should be not
484,000 as Dr. Rutledge had said,
but not less than 000,000 people. And
was it reasonable to expect that the
government that had forced these
people out of the country could bring
them back? It was not reasonable
to think so. Mr. Stevens then
stanced some tariff charges that had
been responsible for closing up some
industries, nnd putting others in difficulties, notably the fertilizer plants
und the woolen mills. Thirty-nine
woolen mills had been closed, yet
Canada imports not less than $125,-
000,000 worth of woolen goods per
The 'entry of Vincent Massey into
the King government was shown by
Mr. Stevens to be not altogether the
impersonal matter the premier had
represented it to be. Mr. Massey's
interests had received substantial
benefits from tariff changes made,
and in addition he had been given
what Mr. Stevens claimed was preferred treatment in regard to the
payment of some reparations claims,
amounting to half a million dollars..
The national trade of the dominion
in the last four years, Mr. Stevens
showed, had not increased but actually showed a decrease of $565,000,-
000, and for sixteen years past Can
ada had been buying on an average
more than $220,000,000 worth of
goods from the United States ahove

by Kiwanis International through the voluntary sub-
iciiptions uf its 95,000 members in the United States
and Canada, was unveiled by John H. Moss, president
luwanis International on September 16th in the presence
of a large gathering of both United States and Canadian
government officials and members of Kiwanis.
The memorial was designed by Charles Marega,
a woll known Italian sculptor of Vancouver. When the
scheme wus first decided upon, It was the i.if ention of the
American Kiwanis Clubs to raise the lunds on their side
of tho border and to present the memorial to Canada.
Canadian Kiwanis, however, insisted upon contributing
toward!- the fund and the memorial was thus erected by
the joint efforts of tho United States and Canadian
At the unveiling ceremony, the Dominion Government was represented by Hon. Dr. J. H. King and Dr.

An extract from thespeech made by the Chief Executive
of the United States on that occasion, written in bronze
for the memorial, and th*1 po?sih|p tent of many a murmured prayer of hope of the cosmopolitan tourist who
reads it as he passes through the park. Is as follows:
"What an object lesson of peace is shown today by
our two countries to all the world. No grim-fared -fortifications mark our frontiers, nn hu^e battleships patrol
our dividing waters, no stealthy spies lurk our tranquil
border hamlets. Only a scrap of paper, recording hardly
more than a simple understanding safeguards lives and
properties on tlm Great, Lukes, and only humble mile-
posts mark the inviolable boundary-line for thousands of
miles through farm und forest.
"Our protection is in our fraternity, our armor is our
faith, and tho tie thnt. binds, more firmly each year, is
ever-increasing acquaintance and comradeship through
interchange of citizens; and thn compact- is not perishable
parchment, but of fair and honorable dealing, which,
God grant, shall continue for all time."

Vancouver, B. C. — Conservative
candidates have been nominated in
every British Columbia constituency,
while the Liberals are still hunting
representatives in several constituencies, nnd in two, at least, will not i
he represented, but will endorse "independents." So far, the indications
are that this province will remain
Conservative; in fact, ten scuts out
of the fourteen aro assured to the
Conservative party and In the other
four their chances are equal, if not
better, than their opponents.
Victoria, Nnnnnio, Fraser Valley,
New Westminster, Vale, West Koot-
■imy, Skeena, ami the three Vancouver seats, are certain to be represented by Conservatives. North
Vancouver is a elose contest, bul the
absentee" vote scandal there in the
provincial contest has greatly injured the Liberal chances federally.
Comox-Atlin is a close contest between Coldlcutt, Conservative, and
Neill, Independent. Cariboo was rep-
sented in the last parliament by T. A.
McBride, Progressive, but there is a
three-cornered contest in this constituency which practically assures a
Conservative victory.
Thc hardest contest in British
Columbia is in East Kootenay, where
the Conservatives have Hon. Dr. J,
H, King, minister of public works,
"bottled up." Dr. King has dreaded
a contest in East Kootenay, and for
a time flirted with the nomination
in Vancouver Centre against Hon.
H. H. Stevens, but soon realized defeat was inevitable there. His next
idea was to secure the Liberal nomination in the new, constituency of
North Vancouver, but after testing
sentiment he went back to East Kootenay to do his best, and his party is
disheartened and discouraged at the
failure of four years' Liberal rule
to develop the mineral resources and
to prevent emigration.
George Bushby, Conservative candidate for Skeona, is going to Agister a great victory over Fred Stork,
Liberal member In the last house for
that riding. Mr. Bushby is a grandson of Sir .lames Douglas, the maker
of British Columbia. He is a forde-
ful speaker, tireless worker, nnd is
filled with that vision and spirit of
optimism that makes an appeal to
all classes. Moreover, he is advocating a policy of development that
residents of Skeena know can only
be brought ubout by a strong, virile
government such us Hon. Arthur
Meighen will provide for Canada.
The Liberal candidate for 1981,
Thomas Booth, is again in the field
for Nanalmo, He was badly beaten
four years ago by (!. H. Dickie, and
will probably Buffer worse this time.
In Victoria, the Liberals have not
been able to secure an opponent to
lion. Dr, Tolmie. whose majority will
run into the thousands.
General Clarke, Leon Ladner, and
Hon. H. IL Stevens, arc all easy winners in Vancouver. Mr. Stevens has
charge of the Conservative campaign
in the province, and his election is so
secure he is devoting practically his I
whole time to campaigning up country.
L. W. Humphrey, Progressive, won
West Kootenay In 1021, but even his
supporters admit his defeat at the
hands of W. K. Ealing. Vale is ns
Conservative as ever, and so Is Westminister, while Eraser Valley has suffered so from American competition
in fruit, vegetables and dairy products, the Liberal candidate is seriously handicapped in appealing for support on such a disastrous policy.
British Columbia is more solidly
Conservative than evei". The Liberal policy is depleting the province
of its raw material for thc benefit of
tlie United States, and thousands of
young people are going to the United
States. The Conservatives can, with
the greatest assurance, count on ten
of the fourteen seats, and hope to
win them all,

The farmers of western Canada
have marketed their grain since September 1st to date with u rush that
is unequalled in the history of the
country. It is hard to realize but,
nevertheless, true that, bused on a
twelve*4iour day, the farmers adjacent to the Canadian Pacific lines
ulone have poured their grain into
elevators since the 1st of September
at the rnte of approximately sixty
bushels at every tick of the clock.
This is borne out by the figures
showing the amount of grain marketed in fourteen working duys,
amounting to ;tf>,-,'t5N,'J0U bushels.
During the same period, there huve
been loaded on the lines of the Canadian Pacific ii total of IK.ilO-1 cars
containing approximately 2S.27H,-
0HO bushels. These cars, placed end
to end, would cover a distance of
150 miles.
The marketings show an increase
of 55.'.) per cent and thc loadings
■Iti.II per cent over any similar period
in the history of the Cunndtnn Pacific.
To keep up with the loading, it
has heen necessary to mow the
loaded enrs east with the utmost despatch iu order to get the empties
back from the head of the Inken to
the grain fields for reloading.
One car of grain has been moved
east from Winnipeg every minute hnd
twenty-three sees), twenty-four hours
a dny since the 1st of September, the
total grain movement east from
Winnipeg being 14,865 cars or nn
average of about nine hundred cars
per day. The movement enst during
the first week in September wns light
compared with the second week, the
average number of cars of grnin
moved enst from Winnipeg during the
second week in September being in
excess of 1,200 cars per day.
There have been delivered by the
Canadian Pacific and unloaded into
elevators at the head of the lakes
since the first of September approximately 11,000 cars of grain, sufficient
to load u fleet of two hundred ships,
each with n cargo of 200,000 bushels,
and today there are 3,700 carloads
of grain in transit between Winnipeg
and Fort William.
The loads east from Winnipeg show
an increase of 51,5 per cent and the
cars delivered at Fort William an
increase of 50.0 per cent, a record
wheih, it is safe to say, is unequalled
tn the history of transportation.

of a marked advance," A. B. Kent,
a recent visitor from Minneapolis,
said before leaving for the south:
"I can see more optimism in Winnipeg today than I have observed for

remarked that "the Canadian farmer

more productive, your marketing facilities are just as good, and your

Potts, a seasoned vagabond, and a
young trump who hus seen only a
few duys "on the road," tarry at the
foot of a railroad trestle in Granite
Gorge, in the Rockies, cooking a "hobo stew" over their rude fire. The
inquisitive Potts attempts by sly
hints to learn something of the past
life of the companion with whom he
has so recently met up, but the
younger man is silent concerning
himself. It is a night of inky darkness, with rain falling heavily and
a chill wind blowing.
CHAPTER   1—Continued
Granite Gorge was, on the whole,
one gesture of Nature that would
scare rather than thrill the tourist
and travelling public; that section
of the public, ut lenst, which journeyed in pullmnn comfort,
But to the vagabonds the Gorge
was a friendly haunt—the rocky declivity from which sprang the spindly legs of the trestle's eastern arch
was o havening cove beach whereon
lapped the flotsam edged tide of
homeless wnnderers that washes over
the mellow ways, of the Continent
always in shy and cautious forerunning of the vernal days of whatever
clime their frowsy presence favors.
Tonight the Old Witch had been
guilty of an inhospitable show of
temper   toward   even   her   favorite
for him to long remember that his
original intention was to beguile
Bob. He immediately became lost
in a rapture of martyred longing.
Suddenly both tramps grew alert
and rose to tlieir feet as, from the
enshrubbed darkness nearby, n
whistle Bounded, fluid and clear
ending with a peeuliar trill—the hobo  signal.
PottB    cautiously    responded
kind, adding to  the  signal  notes u
few   har:-;   of   reassuring   cninrailery
Then Potta and Hob stood still and
listened. But no sound of approach*
ing footstep-; reached Ihem.
Without warning Potts jumped
forward with a shrill squeak, dropping his newspaper and clapping
bis hands to the .-eat of liis panUs.
Only quick intervention by the startled Boh saved him from tumbling
into the fire.
"Spike Nelson!" Potts ejaculated
in painful recognition, without even
looking around.
"De same!" admitted a hobo of
sinister mien and dirty, rather than
ragged,  appearance
he slunk into the circle of firelight. "I fought

Potts, with the vagabond's knack
of imparting a homey leisure to a
campfire under any conditions, calmly unpocketed a newspaper, determined to enjoy, his well-earned respite as any real gentleman should.
He opened to the crossword puzzle,
and was soon lost in its riddles.
Bob was freed from his own searing thoughts temporarily by a sudden, affectionate interest in a study
of  the  happy-go-lucky  character into whose company Fate had thrown
him.   This much he had learned in n
week of carefree rambling and foraging by day, and shoring—by night
—of the mean cover of a single gunny sack; that Potts was fat, freckled,
a   philosopher,   a   poet,   who   many
years before hnd been a professor of
history at an obscure university.   He
had not told where it was or why he
had left it—perhaps he did not know
the latter himself.    Bob, surveying
him, wondered if the answer was in
Potts' weak chin—which was a buttery knob receding in a surf of double chin waves.    Bob wondered snv-'
agoly if there was in his own face
any telltale of the trait responsible
for his  own—decision.    Or had  it
been  in  his own case, after all, a
sign of strength—the assumption of
this   roving   that   society   had   not
trained him, nor Nature fitted him,
for.    Forth from thin dismal camp-
fire and chilly night   his   thoughts
wandered and captured n confused
group of dreams, then bore them to
his heart clunking in the brass chains
of bitter memories that dazed and
burned.   Ho closed his eyes, ns if to
curtain   off   the   tormenting   show.
When he reopened them slowly, he
became aware that Potts was staring
at him with questioning concern on
his pudgy face.   Again came the wry
droop to one corner of Bob's mouth
—thc smile that never got beyond
his lips.    He lowered his eyes and
went on stirring the stew.
"What kind of dessert," Potts asked him by way of sympathetic diversion, reading from the crossword
definitions in his paper, which was
now limp and blurred from the raindrops that blew Into the half-sheltered retreat, "what kind of dessert, I
repeat, sir, is usually eaten after
roast turkey, mashed potatoes, and
brown gravy?" But the luscious vision conjured up in Potta* mind by

advent. In physical aspect he resembled a cross between a wolf and
n gorilla, with none of the gentler
attributes of either beast. His face
was cruel beneath its grimy stubble;
his left hand was missing and in its
place there was a steel spike, pointed to a rapier-like sharpness. Quickly appraising the noisome visitor, it
struck Boh that this spike must be
a  fearful weapon,
"Bob, the unexpected but—" Potts
hesitated, ruefully nursing the spot
where Spike hnd jabbed him, before adding reluctantly "—welcome

"Me friend, de professor, ain't
told yer half of dc woist, young fellow! I'm tough, seo, tough—de
toughest 'bo on two dogs!" he boasted by way of impressing Bob, upon
whom he fixed his buzzard eyes.
Bob uncomfortably thought that he
would not like to be dead and hnve
those eyes viewing his remains.
As their glances clashed, some
suddenly awakened latent instinct
caused both men to withdraw the
hands they had started to extend
some subconscious law written when
tribal castes were molten that hud
made these two forever traditional
social enemies.

Yahk and Kingsgate residents are
wondering why the government road
men haw been withdrawn from then-
districts, when it is noticed that men
are still working on the government
roads in the vicinity of Crunbrook
and Fort Steele; yet the roads in the
Crunbrook and Fort Steele district
are as good as paved, compared with
the mere trail between Moyie and
Kingsgate, as tourists have on different occasions asked if this trail
went as far as Cranbrook.
The wrestling match held in the
Mill Hall, Yahk, last Wednesday evening between Mike Bilinsky, of Toronto, and Nels Jepson, of Yahk, was
good, considerable fast work being
showy' by both.   Nels Jepson was the
winner,   securing   the   first  fall
thirty minutes and the second seven
minutes later. The preliminary bouts
were enjoyed about as much as the
main event, the first being a three,
two minute round boxing contest between  Mr,  Olson,  representing the
C.P.R.   division   at  Kingsgate,   and
Battling Slim," of Eastport fame.
This   was   a  great   bout,   resulting
in a draw, and certainly met with
the hearty approval of all fans present, as was shown by the great ovation given  the  above  two  fighters
when they had finished,    The next
bout wan a two, two minute round,
boxing bout, announced as for the
fly-weight championship of Eastport,
between    Al  Fredricks   and    Hugh
Hannah, both of Eastport, U.S.    It
was an A.l. bout, first one and then
the other getting the advantage, but
towards the finish Hannah weakened a little, due to too many cigarettes, but even so, the referee, on,
the game showing both  had  mude,
could only give a draw.       Mr.  Al
Fredricks suffered a casualty, to wit,
a damaged ear.   Both these fighters
expect to hattle at the next smoker,
as the championship is not yet decided.    The final bout of the preliminaries,  was    between    Howard
Armstrong,   C.P.K.,   Kingsgate,   and
l.onnie  l.ahey, of Eastport.    It was
great while it lasted, but it went for
ubout a minute, during which time
both fighters certainly mixed it up,
l.ahey -getting in n number of telling
punches until a second hefore the
finish,   when   Armstrong   connected
with a strong swing to Lahey's jaw,
scoring    a    complete     knockdown.
Lahey was on his fleet in the course
of  a  few  seconds  and   more  than
willing to go on, but Armstrong had
to withdraw owing to his hand, which
he  hnd  cut  a   week   previous,   and
which ut the time he hit Lahey had
dislocated a knuckle joint.    He was
later attended to by Dr. Thompson.
Kingsgate and Eastport can certainly be proud of their fighters—it is
up to Yahk next time to show Kings-
gate  and   Eastport   that  they  also
British Columbia's mineral output
will reach a total of about $60,000,-
000, us compared with last year's
340,000,000, breaking all record? in
the history of the industry in this
province, Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines, told members of the
Vancouver Board of Trade at a
luncheon in. Vancouver recently.
Already this year, for the eighth
month ended August 31, the mine?
of British Columbia Have yielded
$41,000,000 in new wealth.
"The industry is on the crest of
a wave of prosperity," said Mr.
Sloan. The government has adopted
a policy of leaving the mining law?
strictly alone.
'But it does insist that investors
be given a run for their money, and
in new promotions advertising must
stay somewhere near the facts, and
65 per cent of money subscribed must
go into development.
'We huve had promoters on the
carpet in regard to their operating
methods. In a few instances I have
had to advertise them. The result
hus been that British Columbia ha.-:
a better reputation in England as a
field for investment than any other
province in Canadn."
By royal proclamation. His Excellency, the Governor-General of
Canada, has designated October 4th
to 10th as "Fine Prevention Week."
During that week, lessons on fire
prevention subjects will be given in
the schools, public meetings will be
held in many of the larger cities,
towns and villages, and the owners
and occupants of property everywhere throughout Canada will be
counselled to give special attention
to the removal Of fire- hazards from
their premises.
Fire waste is one of the most seri-
f'Us economic problems confronting
Canada at the present time. The
public in general is vitally affected
by the tremendous losses annually incurred by fire and the enormous expenditures rendered necssary to adequately protect life and property
from its ravages. Seeing that at
least seventy-five per oent of all fires
are caused by carelessness and can
therefore be prevented, it is the obvious duty of the newspapers to bring
the matter to the attention of the
people. In order that this may effectively be accomplished, the government asks for the co-operation of
all who can assist in the movement.
Acting on information laid by a
"Spotter," who ostensibly purchased
n lot in town for the purpose of

recently raided eight premises at

The accused were admitted to bail,
and subsequently four pleaded guilty and were fined from $300 to $000
