W. M. HARItlB,
Tho city wae all agog with excitement on Saturday, last, and the reason
lay in the friendly Invasion the city
suffered ot the hands of a host of
Dokklos, or to be moro precise, members of tho Dramatic Order of the
Knights of Khorassen, a development
ot tho better known fraternity of
Knights of Pythias.
Ous Moose, or Spokane, Imperial
Biisha, was ut tlie bead ot tbo proceedings lost Saturday, and ho was uc
lonipnnlod hy a whole body guard of
Votaries from Spokane/ uud otlier
iHilnts across the lino to tho number
of cIobo upon a hundred, as well as a
strong contingent from other points.
Not tho least conspicuous among the
visitors wns the splendid Juvenile baud
mustering fifteen Instruments, who
were on hand from Bonners Ferry,
and addod much enlivenment to the
proceedings, besides eliciting a good
deal of favorable comment on their
musical prowess,
The Tyros whose way across the
burning sands was made more or less
painfully during the course of Saturday evening, numbered in all about
forty, and they came from all points
on both sides of the line, from Lewis-
ton, Spokane, Couer D'Alene, and other points ln the adjoining states to
the south of the line as welt as some
from Canadian lodges.
Among the visiting Votaries were
Graham Donahue, Wardner, W. H.
Shlra, Wasa, Past Grand Chancellors
Wm. Irving and W. Swoboda, of Nelson, F. A. Herdsman, of Rossland,
Royal Princes D. M. McLaine and
LewlB Lundy, of Omar Kayham Lodge,
Lethbrldge, D. A. McArthur, Coaldale,
Royal Prince A. M. Ritchie, of Lethbrldge, Past Grand Chancellor of Alberta. A strong contingent from Michel was also In attendance, consisting of Andrew Frew, M. Littler, F.
Winter, P. Columbus, E, Morsch, H.
A. Leroy, and V. Brlndae.
The visitors made a fine impression
in the city with their spirit of good
fellowship so apparent, and the interests of Pythlanlsm in the city undoubtedly received a great fillip from
the Imposing 'proceedings last weekend, not the least Interesting part of

A good deal of the credit for engineering the" visit of the Dokktei to
Cranbrook again—a previous visit
having been made in force about
twelve years ago — belongs to Royal
Princo Kummer, of this olty, who
all through the years of his residence
here bas steadfastly worked for the
further Interests ot the order.

There is lots ol excitement at the

To the members ot the Cranbrook
Board ot Trade:
I have iho honor to v.i'jm't tiie Annual report for tlie year 1920. The
members of tlie executive committee
have wontc. hard In tha 'riltreits of
the Board and the community. There
have been numerous meetings and only on one occuskm has there been a
failure to obtain a quorum. The members and the secretary gave williiiR
service and everything has worked
smoothly and amicably so that the last
year has been a very successful one.
In addition to the ordinary meetings ot tlie board representatives from
the Windermere District and from
Creston were entertained at a banquet
and a banquet waB also tendered to
about fifty members of the Vancouver
Board of Trade and they were driven
to Kimberley, Wycllffe and Fort
Steele. We subsequently received an
appreciation from the Vancouver
Board of {Trade of the courtesy extended to their members.
One of the most important matters
carried through during the past year
has been the formation ot the Associated Boards of Trade of south-eastern
British Columbia. The Inaugural
meeting waB held at Invermere last
spring when there were about seventy
persons present Including delegates
from Creston, Fernle, Golden, Invermere and Cranbrook. The formation
of this Association has been talked of
for a number of years and has now
been successfully accomplished-
The Board co-operating with other
Boards In tlie district has carried on
a strong publicity campaign. A,n excellent descriptive booklet of the district has been published and has been
favorably received by the largo number of persons In whose hands it
has been placed. Matter has also
heen placed in the Automobile Blue
Book, Heaton's Annual and Wrlgley's
Directory. In co-operation with Mr.
Mc-Pherson and the Ford company
some magnificent films were taken of
this district and the Windermere Valley and are now being exhibited
throughout thp country. The result
has been that very large numbers of
tourists visited the district last year
and numerous Inquiries were made
about the country.
The Board acting In cp-op@ratton
with the eity council established
camping grounds for the tourists and
they were largely taken advantage of.
One of the most important matters
dealt with during the last year has
been mining. The Board co-operating
with tho Prospectors' Association
sent a delegation and mining exhibit
to Spokane and Seattle, a number of
specimens being also specially obtained for the Dominion government. So
good was our mining exhibit at Seattle
that the University there requested
that it should be left on loan and this
was consented to aud the result has
been that there have been more inquiries and more activity In connection
1th mining In the district than for a
number of years.
The cabin at the station for exhibition of mineral and forest products Is
not yet built; this Is a matter which
should have Immediate attention.
The thanks ot the Board and of
tho community are especially due to
tho very t frit-lent local press for the
generous assistance they have given
In publicity matters.
Tiio Board has made every effort
get the Banff-Windermere road
completed at an early dnte and has
also given Bpeclal attention to the
roads in general In the district and
Is also trying to obtain the preservation of thc trees alongside the roads.
Strong representations were made
to the CP.R. to put back the local
train nnd this has been done.
Efforts have been made to get Cranbrook connected by telephone with
the Win derm ere country and for an
improvement in tho service from Cranbrook to Nelson.
One of the moat Important requirements of the district Is a proper Irrigation system for large areas of land
and this matter Is being taken up
with tlie proper authorities and at the
present time resolutions from tttfc
Board are before the Associated
Boards of Trade of British Columbia
which Is meeting ln Vancouver,
The Board was represented at tbe
meeting ot the Imperial Press Conference at Invermere and a representative was also sent to the Creston fair,
The r.bove are only a few of the
matters dealt with during the year
but work has been continually going
on for the betterment ot the district
in every direction.
There Is a very large membership
to the Board at present and a substantial amount of revenue was paid
in. It Is questionable whether any

During the first portion of last
year trade conditions In Uio district
were remarkably good. Later on Cranbrook began to feel the general stringency and was particularly effected
by tlie slump In tlie lumber market.
The increase in freight rules was pur*
tlcularly detrimental to the lumber
interests. Notwithstanding these adverse circumstances tlie trade of the
district has stood up well. The lumber
companies have had to make a reduction in the price ot lumber but oh tiie
other hand tlieir costs of operations

The annual meeting of the Cranbrook branch of the Retail Merchants'
Association of Canada was culled for
Monday evening ln the city hall, but
the response was not considered sufficiently representative of the business men of the city to proceed wllh
the regular business of the annual
meeting, and after an Informal discussion of some matters of interest to
the merchants, the meeting was adjourned for a week, ln the hope of
securing a better attendance.
President C. J. Little occupied the
chair, and there wero present also

Paterson, A. P. Noble, A. Hainan, E.
H. McPhee, W. H. Wilson, H. L. Harrison, L. P. Sullivan and F. A. Williams. Bruce Brown was appointed
to act aB secretary ot the meeting.
Mr. Little, in opening the meeting,
said that while there had not been
very many meetings held during the
year, considering what had been accomplished, the Retail Merchants Association had completed a ta\r\y ami-
cessful year. Clltet among the results achieved he mentioned the abolition of the luxury tax,

Among tho topics which may come
up at the meeting on Monday evening
ot next week, in addition to the election of officers for the ensuing year
are co-operative buying, the fixing $f

On Monday, Col. Belson, CO.

Pollem, of this city, visited the schools
of the city in the interests of the
School Cadet movement. Principals
Armstrong and Arthurs assured .him
of their support for the orga.nlza.tlou
which already has a provincial enrolment 0? 3600 cadets.   It provides the stev)p district.
The timber stocks on the prairie
are very low while the timber stocks
in the district are very heavy, about
sixty billion feet and twenty blllio:i
over normal.
There have been a few new mills
of small capacity started up during
the last your. The Yahk Lumber Co
sold out to tho Lovortng Lumber Co,
Tho B- C. Spruce Mills, Ltd., Is actively engaged In building its new
mill nt Wattsburg nnd Is getting things
ready for operating later In the year.
Mr. Mooro is also In charge of tho
grazing in the district and he writes
as follows:
"Grazing Is destined to be one of
tho mosl important branches of forest
administration In the Cranbrook district. We linve a largo area of range
closu to the ranches that have been
over-grazed for years. Wo attempted
to overcome this through co-operative
action with the stockmen and though
this Is the first year in which grazing
has received much attention from the
forest staff tiie results have been ^ost
gratifying, which leaves the whole administration pn the forest branch.
Tills condition has been looked Into
by Mr. Copley, of tlie grazing branch,
and an effort will be made to organize tlie stockmen bofore the opening
of the next grazing season. .The grazing regulations are already showing
results in giving greater confidence
to the stockmen who are increasing
their herds. It has resulted in stockmen from Alberta and Saskatchewan
wlio were looking for range buying
land lu the district and from present
indications there will be an Increase
of'three thousand sheep and five hundred cattle next year. On a conservative estimate tlie summer range
should handle forty thousand head of
sheep two thnuuaud head of horses
and ten thousand head of cattle without over-grazing, Tho range Is especially suited {or sheep. Sheepmen
who have used ranges |n parts of the
Western States admit It Is the best
mountain range they have seen."

The girls of tbe High oohool held a
successful Valentine tea in the High
school assembly hall on Monday afternoon, the proceeds amounting to
$36.00. Each girl served on a special
committee with Its own special work
to do and the success was largely due
to good organization. Tea tables were
gaily decorated with dainty refreshments, each table being served by Its
own group of girls. Musical selections were rendered by the pupils during the tea hour. As chairman of the

Mlss Bessie Woodman deserves a good

The circle of old pioneers of this
district is becoming smaller and
smaller. Mr. George Geary, of Fort
Steele, an old timer of this district
passed away lu St. Eugene hospital
on Tuesday, the Sth Inst. The deceased had a remarkable career in this
section of the province, and his life
story could It have been obtained in
.Till wvj!A havo proved intensely interesting.
Mr. Geary was born in Perth, Ontario, over SO years ago. He came
west in 18S0 and settled fn the Fort
Steele district, and during the laat
40 years had been engaged in many
enterprises. He was at one time associated with Mr. James Stoddart
In the management ot the Wm-
dermese Hotel. He was also
a miner of some great reputation, and
did considerable prospecting In the
Bull River district. He was In late
years engaged In farming, being a
partner for some time with Al. Doyle.
The deceased was greatly respected,
and all who knew him speak well of
him as a man of kindly disposition and
of sterling worth. Deceased was a
Mason and Oddfellow, and an ardent
Liberal In politics.
The funeral took place on Friday
last at Fort Steele. A very impressive servlco, conducted by Hev. R. W.
Lee, was largely attended, friends being present from Cranbrook, Bull River and other points.
The committal service at the grave
was read by Rev. R. W. Lee, Following this the Impressive service of the
Masonic Order was conducted by
members of North Star Lodge, of
which deceased was a member. Among those present from Cranbrook
were Geo. Hogarth. R. E. Beattie.
Thos. M. Roberts and C. M. Ward.
It is wltll deep regret that we announce tlie death of Mrs. F. W. Wolfe,
of Canal Flats, wlio passed away on
Thursday, February 10th, in the St.
Eugene   Hospital.
The deceased lady hud only been 111
for two or three days, and hor unexpected deatli was quite a shock.
Mrs. Wolfe was brought to the hospital on Wednesday of last week and
passed away on tho following day.
Tlit late Margaret Wolfe was born on
December 5th, 1889, and became the
bride of Mr. Fred Wolfe about ttiree
years ago. Her kind disposition and
christian character gained for her the
respect and esteem of all wlio came
In touch with her. The sympathy of
a largo circle of friends go out towards Mr. Wolfe tn bis sud bereavement, Intensified by the fact that two
little girls one aged two years and the
other 10 months, are left motherless
Tho funeral took place on Sunday
afternoon last when the servico was
conducted in tho Methodist church by
tho Rev. R, W. Lee. A largo number
of sympathizers attended the services
and also accompanied tho remains to

rites were conducted.
VICTORIA.—The broad outlines of
the government liquor control law
wore outlined by Premier Oliver last
Saturday in the Legislature In opening the debate on his motion to ask
the Lieutenant-Governor to submit a
bill providing for government sale of
Administration by a commission
which will be Independent, non-partisan, but answerable to the government for the proper carrying out of
their duties;
Abolition of bars and saloons;
Total prohibition of sale to persons
under the age of 81.
Liquor stores to be limited to the
larger centres of population:
Tlie introduction of a permit system
with tbe permit revocable where its
holder is guilty of abuses or personal
Liquor to be sold at a moderate
price to yield a reasonable profit to
the government;
Tlie commission to be given power
to draw up and impose regulations
frotn time to time for the proper enforcement of the act;
Illicit liquor buying to be mado a
punishable offence;
The municipalities to receive ;>0 per
cent, of all revenues: received from
fines under the ret in their respective district*.
No bill is as yet before thc House
and the Premier made it clear that
his own suggestions were not to be
taken as being a final statement of
the government's attitude, but rather
suggestion of the government's
mind tor the purpose of provoking a
general debate and obtaining the
grneral feeling of the House berore
the liquor control and salt measure
is given its final drafting beforo introduction.
"I'm on a sort of prospecting trip:
I want to find out the views of members of the House »and especially
the views of the members of the opposition. And before I'm through I
want to get the opinion of the leader
of the Opposition, who all along has
been very careful not to disclose
where he stands in regard to government sale,*' said the Premier, ln
throwing out an Invitation io the

The city in general learned with
great regret of the distressing tragedy
which took place at Yahk on Saturday afternoon, wherein A. K. Uroad-
hagen took his own life, after firing
two shots at Mrs. Ethel M. Todd, his
ilvorced wife, with fatal effect- The
tragedy took place ln the kitchen of
tiie Commercial hotel. Yahk, where
Mrs. Todd was employed as housekeeper.
Broadhagen arrived that Jay on the
train from the west, and after registering at another hotel, went at once
to the Commercial to see Mrs. Todd,
and it Is thought thai be made advances to her to return with him to Alberta. Receiving no encouragement,
lie drew a revolver on ber and tired
two shots without any warning, then
turned tbe weapon upon himself, taking his own life wllh a single shot,
Provincial Constable 1-aird ot Yahk
was on tlie spot in a few minutes, but
life was extinct In both cases. Dr.
G. E. L. MacKinnon, district coroner,
went out from tbis city on Sunday,
accompanied by G. B. Willis, undertaker, and the bodies were brought In
to Cranbrook. After making an investigation Mr. MacKinnon decided that
an enquiry was unnecessary, the circumstances of the case being so plainly apparent.
The funeral of Mrs. Todd was held
today, Thursday, Rev. F. V. Harrison,
of Christ church, conducting the services. Two sons of the murdered
woman, Messrs. Norman and Herbert
Todd, arrived early this week from
Vermilion, Alberta, and wero present
at their mother's funeral.

[number at the job will produce
the largest results. Not a greal
deal of effort lias been put forth
in the past by the community
as a whole to put this eity on
the mail. Fortune has smiled
upon us thus far. Business has
literally rolled Into the town.
Little effort of a systematic and
persistent kind has been put
forth to increase this business,
and it remains to be seen what
a vigorous program could accomplish during the coming
spring and summer.
The annual reports published this week over the signatures of the president and secretary-treasurer of the Cranbrook Board of Trade, ami setting forth the activities of that
body for the past year should
commend themselves as good
reading to those who really
have the interests of the district at heart. The value of a
live board of trade to any community cannot be set out in any
actual and tangible sum in dollars and cents, but nevertheless
an invaluable asset is represented in a body of that kind. The
day is past when boards of
trade were looked upon with
mistrust and suspicion, and
spoken of slightingly, as "not
doing any good, anyway."
It is a known fact that more
and more individuals and bus
iness corporations, when contemplating opening up relations of any kind with a given
district, are adopting t h e
up-to-date method of looking
to the board of trade for desired information. The city
or district whicli does not maintain a live board of trade proclaims itself a back number,
and not willing to make any
step forward to meet any developments which may come
within its reach.
Taking into consideration
the sterling work the local organization has accomplished,
the appeal of the president for
even wider support than has
been enjoyed in the past, ought
not to fall on deaf ears.
Are we alive to the fact that
at our very door we have one
of the finest playgrounds Ihat
can be found in any part of the
wide wide world? De we realize
the wealth that is ours, that we
have an asset which most communities would rave about and
boost at every possible opportunity? Our modesty as a people and a community may excuse our silence, but a golden
opportunity is passing by, and
others are busy. Enterprising
neighbors of ours are determined to keep their own folk at
home and to induce other folks
to travel southward. But our
mountains, valleys, rivers and
lakes have all the beauties of
the most famed resorts of this
continent and elsewhere, and in
addition there are features not
found elsewhere.
Boards of Trade through this
section are awakening to the
fact that the time is now atj
Tiand to move forward with a
liberal progressive plan. In
many respects the war brought
stagnation and produced a type
of lethargy which some individuals find it exceedingly hard
to throw off. A wonderful valley lies at our door but as yet
It Is scarcely known. It can
only become well known by the
united efforts of all concerned.
In a short time the railway authorities may announce an enlarged program and give evidence of faith in this valley.
This program will call for large
investments and will reveal vision as well as enterprise.
Cranbrook, the gateway to
the Windermere Valley, has
everything to gain, but much
will depend on her own activity
and ambition as to how great
the gain will he. A start was
made ln the right direction last
year when facilities for tourists
were provided hut this should
only be the commencement of
a vigorous program. A sane advertising campaign is necessary. Information must be disseminated   and   the   greatest
The eyes of the world have
been directed toward South Africa during the past week.
Friends and enemies of the Empire alike have turned with
great interest to watch the battle that has been raging for
some time. In the hearts of
some were misgivings, and
many wondered whether the
Empire would remain solid.
But South Africa has spoken,
and with emphasis. She will
remain for many years a member of the greatest commonwealth of history.
In no other place in the Empire was there more chance of
secession. All the odds were
against the binding tie of empire. Only twenty years ago
some sections of the present
South African Unions existing
as separate republics were at
war with Great Britain. In the
past twenty years there has not
been much opportunity to complete the foundations of a united people antl build up a unit
of the great Empire. But men
like Botha have builded better
than they thought. The imperial bond has been tested, but it
lias withstood tlie violent
strain. The victory is all the
more remarkable when it is
noted that its leader was of
Dutch descent as was also the
great Botha. Both Smuts and
Botha fully recognized the fact
that there could be no real future, but only dissention and
civil strife should South Africa
break away from the Empire
Her destiny can be best worked
out as a member ut the Empire,
knowing full well that all disadvantages are outweighed by the
matchless advantages of membership in such a commonwealth of nations as the British
Empire really is.
The American press has evidently been watching closely
the South African issue. The
New York Times has stated
that South Africa has clearly indicated that what was impossible in Southern seas would
be even more impossible in the
Irish Sea. In spite of the apparent situation in Ireland a
real crisis would reveal a dormant sentiment against an actual separation. The Nationalist party of South Africa has
lost, and lost badly, and its defeat will have no small influence on those in Ireland or India who feel that at a shout the
Imperial ties can be dissolved.

of the Bloor street intersection, adjacent to a subway which links up
tbo business section of old Yonge

Executive secretary Pacific Northwest
Tourist Association,)
As a people, and as a province, Bri'
tish Columbians huve not realized tlmt
scenery, climate and sport havo a value in dollars and cents equal to the
minerals iu our hills, the timber in
our forests, the fish in our seas, and
tho fertility of our lands. It Is difficult for a hnrd-lieadcd business man
to realize that other worn out business
men, men of leisure and wealth, women exhausted and run down through
household cares and the strenuous
life of today will leave as much money
each year in the province as cun be
derived from any one of our basic
The maret for the tourist Industry
is moro constant and more nearly always at a high level than that of any
other industry. Do not forget that the
tourist travel is an industry, that your
wuste places of nature, snow-capped
mountains, mighty rivers, enchanting
lakes, rugged coast line, sea beaches,
l)lg game, turbulent trout streams and
your evergreen forests, constitute the
raw material for one of the greatest
industries of all. And, this market
is constant, inexhaustible, and the
prico Is whatever you care to set upon
When the Canadian Pacific Railway
was promoted and In the fight that
took place in the House of Commons
with reference to Us subsidy, it uas
claimed tbat it could never pay Inter-
eat on Its bonds because, for the last
hree or four hundred miles, it passed
hrough a barren country, a sea of
mountains, the traffic from which
would not pay for axle grease.
I need not tell you that the Canadian
'acific Railway has spent more money in hotels and trails and roads and
imusements in these wr.ste places, In
this sea of monutalns, than they have
on any other portion of their line, and
tiiat this sea of mountains, again,
waste places of nature, of no economic value, has proved to be the biggest
source of passenger revenue to the
Canadian Pacific Railway- It is an
undoubted fact that these tourist
features have been the biggest factor
in the success of this great Canadian
Sir Qeorge Paish, when asked
to give the reason for the decline of
the Pound Sterling in the early days
of the war, gave some startling figures of the loss of revenue from certain sources to Great Britain, and one
of them was the loss of two hundred
million dollars from American tourists.
It is a well known fact that for
years before the war Italy maintained
her rate of exchange between herself
nnd other countries solely by the Influx of new money frem the tourist.
British Columbia, with its unsurpassable scenery, its four hundred
thousand miles of teritory, its historic features, nnd Indian legends, its
big gume and sport fishing, has neglected wholly this great source of
wealth until three or four years ago,
which, if it had been developed to the
sumo extent that other natural resources havo been encouraged, the
province would have been much more
thickly populated than it is today, its
finances would have been very much
stronger, there would have been a
very largo class of independently
wealthy people living within its borders, ind It would have had an annual
rovemie pouring in from transient
visitors amounting to many millions
of dollars a year.
This tourist travel would not only
have given the results I have spoken
of, but it would have done more
than anything else to develop its natural resources and to have brought
settlers, industries and manufacturers
into tho province.
It is a strange' thing that the average man speaks of the tourist travel
with contempt. It is because he has
never given the matter a thought.
If we were to ask ourselves what
city of the Pacific coast ls the most
important, where the largest population is, where there is the most business, where real estate has the highest va I ue, we would naturally, probably, think of that excellent, well
built, imposing city of San Francisco,
with Its world renowned Golden Gate,
and yet, that Is not so. There are
probably at least fifty thousand more
people In Los Angeles than In Ban
Francisco, real estate is worth a thousand dollars a front foot more than in
San Francisco. Yet, it is essentially,
without a shadow of a doubt, a tourist city.
When the tourist first wae attracted
there, it had nothing but climate and
hot air. It had not even soil until
the water was brought on to It. And,
yet, the tourists came, and saw, and
liked lt and went hack and made It
the greatest city on the Pacific coast.
In the wake of tbe tourist has followed Industries so much so that
there have heen more new industries
established ln Los Angeles probably
during the past ten years than any
other city on the Pacific coast. And
yet, Los Angeles and California have
maintained an ever Increasing transient tourist business until lt baa reach
ed each t, magnitude ae to overshadow
aU other economic oeveloxHnenta of
tho auto.   Th* tovrist crap far «-
ceeds nny other crop in California.
Lot us quote you some startling figures.
I have a circular which shows thai
the unnual orange crop is $tlli.000,000;
the deciduous fruit crop $15,000,000;
lemons $11,000,000; or u total of $88,-
000,000. The cotton crop is $19,501),■

tho seven products of the soil of
In the same circular is tlie statement that the tourist crop per annum
is $150,000,000, a sum exceeding the
total value of their seven principal
resources of the soil.
Can I awaken In your minds a trua
conception of the value of the development of the tourist travel to tliis province und the Pacific Northwest?
For, again, I say, that we have neglected woefully this source of revenue and wealth in British Columbia
and the Pacific NorthWOBt, ut any rain
up to four years ago.
In four short years we have carried
on un advertising campaign which hat
compelled tho most, favorable attention und comment throughout the United States and Cauadu. We have put

And, we believe this travel is not
more than started, that in the years
to come it will Increase in size and
gather momentum, like a rolling snowball, until to a large extent wc have
wiped out the neglect of former years.
Perhaps you do not know that during this last year 250,000 people have
come into the province of British Col
umbla through the port of Blatnt
alone. Someono has estimated that
they spent $20 each, or a total of five
million dollars. A large number of
people have come In through other
gate-ways, especially Klngsgate,
Banff, Prince George and Prince Rupert. The tourist travel through Eust
Kootenay, especially by automobile,
has exceeded all previous years and I
give due credit to the East Kootenay
Boards of Trade for their enterprise
ln this matter.

No ensilage crop is receiving more
comments at the present time in Canada than sunflowers. This crop has
become very popular on the prairie
during the last few years because of
the immense yields obtained In comparison with other crops and the quality of the ' ensilage manufactured
from it. The results obtained at
Agassiz under conditions such as we
had last year, do not point to sunflowers as being an entirely successful
crop for this district.
Sunflowers are sown alongside the
corn under exactly the same conditions. The land used is a chocolate
loam with a gravelly sub-soil. It had
been ln pasture the previous year.
Barnyard manure was applied on the
sod ln the fait after which part of
the field was ploughed and the remainder left till spring. The land was
well disced and harrowed betcrc
planting the seed, in drills, three feet
apart, during the last week in May.
The corn and sunflower crops were
cultivated with the two-horse cultivator till the plants were too high.
They were hoed once and the remainder of the cultivating was done with
the scuffler.
The sunflowers were harvested with
the corn binder when the kernels
were In the dough stage. This was In
tho middle of September. The yield
of sunflowers .was 14 tons 300 pounds
per acre as compared to 15 tons 1807
pounds per acre for the corn. The
abnormal season may have been the
cause of the poor showing made by
the sunflowers. June was very wet
while July and August and up ti tiie
Sth of September were exceptionally
diy. The remainder of September was
so wet that harvesting was done in
the rain.
Very little difficulty was experienced In getting the cows to eat the sunflower silage. The young cattle particularly ate it with relish. Nine two
year old heifers were used in a six-
weeks feeding experiment to compare
the value of the two silages. They
gave .959 pounds of milk per day
more when fed the corn. Although
the percentage ot fat was slightly
greater when sunflowers were fed, the
difference was not sufficient to make
up for the extra quantity of milk given as the cows produced .007 pounds
of fat mote per cow per day when fed
corn. Placing the same value pound
per pound on the two silages, corn
produced the cheaper milk and
This Is a brief report of our preliminary work with sunflowers. The
results so far as they go indicate the
superiority of corn as compared to
sunflowers although the latter gave
such phomise that more work with the
crop Is Inevitable,

Just as the fire bell was ringing for

and had been resident In Fernte for
the past thirteen years or so. He was
regarded as a splendid public-spirited

New York Sale
VANCOUVER.—Mr. Lome Campbell of the West Kootenay Power and
Light Co.. Rossland, ls in the city
on a business trip. With its plant at
Bonnington Falls, this company supplies power to Rossland itself, to
Trail and its smelter, to Granl Forks
and all the country up to Princeton
and Copper Mouatoin.
Copper naturally is king with Mr.
Campbell and the one subject he is
interested in at present is a recent
despatch from New York that the copper Export Association has sold between 300.000.000 and 400,000.000 lbs.
of the metal for export.
"Ot course, I have no means of verifying this statement," said Mr. Campbell, "but if this association is able
to finance this $45,000,000,000 deal,
for that is the difficulty, then it must
have an effect on the copper market of
this province. As is known, the Industry is stagnant, owing to piled up
supplies with no market because of
the monetary situation. Bht should
the Xew York deal go through, undoubtedly British Columbia will immediately feel the result and tbe copper industry most directly."

Twenty years ago tlie total assurances in forco witii the Sun Llfo of
Canada were ubout half the new business actually paid for during thc year

proper to invite the help of all the
members of the House to work out a
measure which will reflect the will
ot the people as expressed ln the referendum.
"The people themselves have decided this question and it ls the duty
of all members of the House to give
effect to the referendum decision,"
said the Premier ln opening and appealing for constructive criticism or
frank help from the Opposition.
"The government Is not attempting
to shirk any ot Its responsibility. It
is our Intention to frame and submit
a bill, but before we bring In that
bill wo desire to have the sentiments
of the House as fully expressed ae

Giving his views on the question,
Premier Oliver quoted freely from his
manifesto before the general election, In which he Interpreted the vote
as meaning that the people did not
wish a return of the bar or aaloon,
but wanted liquor made available at
reasonable pricos for moderate use
without abuses.
"On what terms should the liquor
commlsloners hold office?" he asked,
and answered: "We feel that that
they should be Independent of political Influences, yet in the last analysis wo realize that the government
must be responsible for their administrations. I do not think the best
result can be obtained from a commission free to do anything and not removable even for cause. Nor do I
think it wise to tie their hands too
tightly. One of the faults of the
Prohibition Act was that when difficulties came to light we had to wait
until the Legislature could meet again
and alter the act to cope with the
situation. I think the commission
should have power to make regulations as they are needed for the better
working of act.
The commissioners should be vested with powers to establish stores
as they are needed. They should aim
to keep the number of stores down.
I think if stores are maintained in
the various centres of the province
it should be ample.
The right to obtain liquor can
probably be best met by a system of
permits. It may be wise to endorse
the quantities allowed on the permit,
and the permit should be revocable
for abuse or drunkenness or where lt
ls shown that a man is spending mon-
ey on liquor which should go to his
"Bootleglng, ln my opinion, wu
aided under the Prohibition Act
through there being no punishment
imposed against the purchaser of illicit liquor. Obviously each bootlegger must have 20 to 40 customers.
I would favor having lt made an offence to purchase illicit liquor. A
law against buyers would have 40 or
50 times more chance of success.
"Under tbe Prohibition Act the
municipalities complained that
took away their revenues from liquor
licenses and then added to their work
by making them enforce prohibition
I think that ln any new legislation
we must rely on the co-operation of
the municipalities, who have the local
knowledge and the local machinery
for law enforcement. We must make
it to their financial advantage to enforce the law, and I would suggest
that they get 50 per cent, of the profits tor law enforcement. In cases
where local authorities show no desire to enforce the law the commission should be empowered to go into
It is estimated that the world requires fifty billion pounds of meat an*
nually and that while the population
Increased by 85,000,000 (that ls from
510,000,000 to 695,000,000) between the
years 1901 to 1014, cattle, sheep and
hogs combined only Increased 40,00,-
000 (that ls frcm 1,065,000,000 to 1
106,000,000.) This of course Indicates
that there Is not only a shortage of
meats In the world now, but that as
the years go by lt must become greater. Dealing with this subject In an
Illuminative article In the December
number ot the Agricultural Oatette of
Canada, Mr. P. E. Light, chief of the
Markets Intelligence Division, Ottawa,
points out that general economic progress as well as the Increase of human population and the status of living in the consuming world makes
fresh demands upon available lands
and tends to bring about a relative decline ln the output ot animal produce.
This decline must be offset by an extension in live stock production sufficient to meet Increased consumptive
demands. A great augmentation ot
population in Canada at the present
time would find us In a situation
where we would either -be severely
taxed to provide for the total domestic
demand or else compelled to curtail
our export trade.

Tbe following Ib from Mr. N. A.
Wallinger's report in his capacity as
Oold commissioner in which he kindly-
allowed me to incorporate In this report:
The season of 1920 lias not added
any names to the list of shipping
mines, but on the other hand a much
wider interest has been evinced in the
properties of the district. Many examinations have been made, and in
most, if not all, cases where development ls proceeding, satisfactory improvements have been reported. In
fact the mining industry In the district ls stronger than It bus been for
years, and it is expected, now tba'.
tbe Presidential election Is over In the
United States, a stable money market
will result In steady development aa
a corollary of tho many examinations
made this year.
Placer mining has been fairly active throughout tbe district though
only one company reports a satlsfae-
tory clean-up, the others being still
in the development state.
The Seattle Company on Wild Horse
have re-organized, and the (Jumble
Company, after a short successful
run, had to shut down for repairs,
the pipe Une having broken down. On
Perry Creek tbe hydraulic plant is
completed and a little preliminary
test yielded a nice return of fine gold.
Other placers on Wild Horse, Moyie,
Weaver and Bull River, are being put
ln shape for next season.
The progress of quartz mining is
satisfactory, the development of the
"Victor Group" is being rapidly pushed, new machinery being Installed, a
fifty-jton concentrator erected, bre
bins and other necessary buildings
built, and this winter's work should
put the property on the shipping list.
The work on the "Rob Roy" Group on
Skookumchuck ls progressing favorably under bond to the "Globe Mining
Company," a compressor and pump
have been installed and work is being pushed. Some native copper was
found in the crevices of the ledge ln
the shaft, and a fine grade of ore exposed. This vicinity has all been located, and one company Intends doing
extensive diamond drilling.
The St. Mary's country did not come
ln for the attention it thoroughly deserves. One or two examinations
were made, but tbe results have not
been made known. This section of
the district bas not aa yet good transportation facilities, and this very
strongly militates against its exploitation.
The hematite deposit on Bull River
and Sand Creek were examined and
well reported on. It Is understood a
deal la pending.
The free milling gold quartz camp
on Perry Creek came In for some examination with Indifferent results. Apparently this type of ore needs special
engineers, as many complaints have
been made as to the method of sampling employed by the engineers. One
report waa very satisfactory, and in
consequence a deal ia pending whereby a prospecting mill la to be Installed.
Tracy Creek camp came In for some
attention, the "Eatella Group" being examined and favorably reported
on. This property has a wide ledge
of ot lead zinc, as well aa one or two
leads of copper gold ore.
The North Star mine has shipped approximately eight thousand tona of silver lead zinc ore, and haa had a very
successful year. The St. Eugene at
Moyie has sent several hundred tons of
galena to the smelter. The discovery
of three feet of solid galena ln this property shows that It ls not all worked
out yet. The shipments amounted to
eight hundred and fifty tons of galena
and over three hundred tons of zinc
and galena. The Society Girl at Moyie shipped a small car of ore to the
Trail Smelter. This property ls under lease.
The returns from the Sullivan Mine
the property of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, show a
marked Increase over last year's shipments. For the nine months ending
September SOth last, the returns are:
Zinc ore  167.308 tons
Lead ore   11,965 tons
Iron Pyrites 3,325 tons
which are considerably higher than
the total amount of ore shipped during the whole of 1919. Considerable
improvements have been made, lnclu-

ding the erectoo of twelve workmen's
houses, two staff residences, two bunk
houses, a machine shop and warehouse. Underground development
was pushed actively. Thc lower tunnel, now In over eight thousand feet.
«us extended, and an upraise connecting upper and lower workings completed. Among the future developments under advisement is the feasibility of bringing electric power for
the mine from Bonnington Falls, and
whtn decided tho construction of the
concentrator will be undoitaken.
Again I have to complain that I
have uot been able to gel satisfactory
statistics about the agriculture in the
district. Personally I know that improvements have been made on a number of farms and that some pure-bred
stock has been brought into the country, and that some of the farmers are
at last beginning to realize tlie importance of silos. I would respecfully
point out to the farmers, stockmen
and their representatives that statistics uud reports are of the utmost Importance and that the Board of Trade
will appreciate it if information were
supplied which C0UU(j be put on record and bo available for those who
are enquiring about thc district.
Climatic Conditions
I know that it is a matter of importance for new settlers to know what
tho climatic conditions of the country
are, and a meteorological report for
the past year has beeu furnished by
Mr. J. P. Smith.
I also Include In my report the vital statistics for the last five years:

During the last year a good deal of
attention has been paid to recreation.
Tlie golf club has seventy members
and tha last season has been the most
successful in Its history. A number
of improvements have been made to
the links and the land has been purchased.
The tennis club membership stands
at fifty-one and this Is a very active
club which has added another very
successful year to the many of tbe
Tlie Curling club this winter bas
been very active and its membership
Is very large. The younger generation have thoroughly enjoyed the open air hockey rink and the Interest in
the game has been great.
Recently tho Recreation Club has
been organized and the old gymnasium has been redecorated and put into thorough repair. The management is energetic and has interested
a large number of the citizens in becoming members. The gymnasium
and swimming pool In addition to the
reading room and rest room will pe
taken advantage of to the full, and
the prospects are bright for a very
successful year.
School statistics in brief are as follows:
Central School enrolment  449
South Ward School enrolment  83
Kootenay Orchards School
enrolment   25
High School enrolment  78
Total   635
While It is important to develop the
tourist traffic and to encourage settlement upon the lund it must not be
forgotten that this district is dependent more particularly upon its mineral and forest wealth for its development, and every efTort should therefore be made for the development
and enocuragement of the mining and

Tht report of Fire Chief Reece
showed fire losses amounting to about
1250.00 for the month. Four alarm*
were responded to during the month.
One of the chief discussions of the
evening centred about the report of
Superintendent Eakin of ihe Light department- He reported that lighting
improvements on Baker street would
call for a total exendlture of about
$12,000. After discussing the matter
at great length definite action was
laid over for some future time. Mayor
Genest. and aldermen Flowers and
Arnold thought the expeuuiture too
great for the present moment, tht
mayor considering that the outlying
parts of the city should be considered
before any elaborate system was introduced for the business section.
Cheap verandah lights was sugested
by alderman Arnold as a move toward
better city lighting.
Alderman Laurie reported for the
Health and Relief committee one case
of need. Attention had been rendered
but invtstigation showed the city not
liable to render relief.
By-law 193. covering a temporary
loan was passed and adopted.
Residents from the Devil's Flat
section petitioned for wattr connections. Referred to Water committee

It was decided to appoint F. M. McPherson custodian of the new motor

A Good Attendance Is Urged
The Forum meeting Tuesday evening
was opened at S.30 with Mr. W. M.
Armstrong in tho chair.
Tho subject for discussion was
"Commission Government as Applied
to Cities and Towns." Mr. F. O. Morris Introduced the subject affirmatively and Mrs. Milts negatively.
In commencing his argument Mr.
Morris gave a brief history of the
system which originated about twenty
years ago In Galvaston, Here the old'
er and better known form of municipal government was a complete failure and after, in some ways, a providential tidal wave swept away a great
portion of the city, it was found that
somo new plan of government bad
to be adopted. A board of five commissioners was elected to represent
the people and iu tlieir hands was
placed the power of governing the
A strong feature of this plan is
the centralization of 'power. They
have practically absolute power but
aro responsible to the electorate.
Thc second essential is that the
commissioners at large represent the
city as a whole and beueiit the city
as a whole. ,
The third essential is that they are
the only officers who are elected, all
others being appointed with no specific time limit. These appointees may
be removed at any time and are responsible to the commissioners.
The fourth essential Is that all friction is eliminated through tho simplicity of the organization. It also cuts
out a lot of tiie "red tape" and action
Is moro speedy. It is simply a case
of the Few and Active versus Many
and Cumbersome.
Tlie system tends to run civic affairs
as un ordinary business institution or
the same amount of service for a less
amount of taxation.
Lcthbridge, Alta., and St. John, N.
B., have this form of government and
Kamloops und Pentlcton are considering It.
Mrs. Miles, however) brought out
tho point that a wider form Is much
better than that wherein wo have a:
few highly 'paid experts who sometimes suppose that they know so much
about their business that they will
brook no criticism whalsoepcr.
"The root ut governmental evil," she
said, "lies with the electors, It we
elect a certain class of men to fill
our offices we'll got a certain class
of business done by them. It is not,
then, the form of bovernment which
,is wrong, for the commissioners may
bo equally faulty, but the men who
fill theso offices."
Among other speakers were Mr.
McLennan, Mr. A. fi, Leigh, Mr. G.
T. Moir, Mr; Morton and Mr. W. A-
Mr. Nisbet thought that the chief
advantage of the commission government is that tbe men ure assumed to
be picked out as particularly suited
to the position. Tho speaker thought
that to have one general manager
would bo even more efficient.
Future topics for the Forum are aa
