Deflection  did   take   plr.ee.   and   the
measurements showed that, the extent
of the deflection was in close accord
with the theoretical degree predicted
by  ICInsiein. as opposed to half thai

from the principles of Newton.    It is

While the condition is one which

churches and the sound industrial or-1
gantzattons of labor and capital. In I
their hands nre the Implements need-'

the pure world metal refined for casting in a new and shapely mould.
The schools and the legislative bodies arc given their opportunity and
entrusted with the means of carrying

mandate of the people ns a whole.
but the other bodies, religious or Industrial, are responsible only by reason of the influence they would yield

citizens of Cranhroolt know whether they desire to go to lhe expense
of a city election
Whether or nol il would be a good
policy to havo o contesl al ihis time
is a question about which many, having the interests pi the municipality
at heart, arc undecided.
The present chief executive and
those In olllce have transacted the
business of the city in a business like
manner, as results will show, and just
why Cranhrook should assume unnecessary expense in nn election, and
take chances on not bettering conditions, possibly making them more bin-
densome to ratepayer:* because of the
possibility of inexperienced persons
assuming the rein** of office, Is not
quite plain,
Cranbrook is a big corporation, so
to speak, and were the same men lu
the employ of a largo private concern
with the records they have made, il
is    quite    certain    tlieir    employers
would not take any chances In making  changes—il   Is  nol   the   way   In
which   business   Is   BUocessftllly   con
ducted.     Hence,   why   should   Cranbrook lu thosi times of promised pro:
pority take a gamble ami the possibility of making mistakes which can
not be rectified for another yenr.
Let us carry on with tbo business
without disturbing tbe onwnrd move
ment toward;-: better times ami avoid
tho expense (if an election. Certainly lhe cost of a contesl could be applied lo some channel whereby Cranbrook would bo certain of benefits
most desired and In which everyone
would  participate.
For instance, greater benefits would
accrue from the expenditure of the
same amount of money whicli will be
necessary lu conduct lug an election
were ihe same appropriated to the
publicity campaign proposed, and to
the Great War Veteran's and other
deserving causes nt this time. Citizens should discourage an election
If Ihey would have Cranbrook progress as she will If the spirit of cooperation prevails.
THE J2.000.000 GRANT
Possibly less than quarter or a million dolars of the ^I'.OOO.OOO set aside
by the Provincial Government to provide loans to- rem rued soldiers engaged' In .productelve enterprises has
yet heen expended, says the Victoria
Colonist. The sum was to he utilised
d.irlng the present fiscal year, two-
thrids of whieh has passed away, so
that there rightly some curiosity
about the disposal of this money, the
expenditure of which a commissioner
was appointed to ndminst.r. There is
n hoard which inquires Into ihe bona-
fidoe of any enterprise for welch a
loan   Is   sought   out   of  tills   fund.     (1
meets at intervals, and. presumably,
doc- lis duty or In other words, deals
with applications strictly on tholr
merits The exie.il of Hit; Work falling to the share of thu Commissioner
may be vory great, or the reverse,
hui if the money Is wanted for encouraging Industrial enterprise. It seems
Extraordinary so liitle of it should
have been used up to date
L'uder   the   terms   hy   which   this
money   was  set  nslde,  the  Province
should have authority to creat work
Tor returned soldiers.   Now would be
a most opportune tlmo for this task
to be undertaken.   An investment of
a mllioii and a half, or more, in industries designed to assist in  bringing    about    rc-estnbllshment    would
prove a salutary move ou the pari of
tho   Provincial   Oovernment.    It   Is
true this money may be only for loan
j purposes, that fs ostensibly so, but In
j reality   il   Is  to  meet a  demand   to
create -employment, and to this extent
we see  no reason  why the Initiative
Should not he taken by the authortles
themselves.    We have always maintained   It   is   idle   for  the   Provincial
dovornmenl to ns.uimo '.he attitude it
1 has no obligation lu lhe matter of re-
j esablishment.    It no longer does so
because It haa helped in a variety of

■ to have contemplated expending the
I vole to which we have alluded In this
I li\..k.     It   Is  u   matter  which   should
now engage the Boar J which Is supposed  lo pass  upon  Provincial loans
I to returned soldiers.   A recommendation  from that quarter should carry
; weight with thc Govornment, especially if. as It seems likely, it. would be
backed up by the various ex-service
organizations.    Tills Is one way lhe

The bronze wears olT all to soon

loses that to some degree nut by

soldier In lhe tube. Ae of old, he lifts
his trousers to avoid bagging nt the
knees. In doing so he displays ln
hundreds of cases the sock of army
grey. Ready as ho was to discard
the other trappings of war he still
clings to his army socks, Possibly the

be responsible iu no small measure.

Tho coal miner who thinks he ought

"The Cecil Rhodes of the Okanagan" has been the title given Mr.
J. M. Robinson of Naramata, Oka-
n&gftn Valley, B. C.
It Is due to his energy and vision
that thc valley is now covered with
smiling orchards and Is one of the
assets of the Dominion.
From bis newspaper office in
Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, in
18ii4, Mr. Robinson observed a family
of eight, with their savings of ten
thousand dollars, leaving for California. That they were seeking a
milder climate led him to remark
tbat It was to be regretted that Can-
should lose such citizens and
that there was not a Canadian California.
wo years later M r. Robinson
his party went to Rossland, at
thc time or the mining-boom and
formed a prospecting party who
weut Into the Okanagan valley and
located claims near Fcachland and
established Camp Hewitt. The hills
refused to uncover their store
bouse of metals. With courage
iuev faced the conviction that their
hopes were blighted. However, if
the hills or 1'PBchland revealed tbat
th.' greatest wealth lay in the mir-
face soil which, when cultivated

sage brush. A tract purchased on
the beach waa called Peachland, the
name carrying the advertisement
with it. Eastern people then Inquired if "Peaches grew in Peach-
land", so there truly was much in
a name. To have one hundred
families occupying the land that one
family occupied! to see the barren,
parched hills tbe homes of thousands of Easterners was the dream
of the "Father of the Okanagan."
Promoting this colonization scheme,
a car of settlers was brought from

Robinson's home and this union
church continued for some years.
The late Mr. J. B. Somerset, foi mer
business manager of the "Winnipeg

attended the fruit farm part of the
enterprise, It required Ave years
for the tree*** to come iuto full bearing and during that time there were
many cries of "fake" hut the
staunch-hearted men continued their
transformation plans. Over twenty
mlleB of good roads were constructed and gave access to every
tract. Blectrio nnd domentlc water
systems were Installed. In due time,
one hundred thousand fruit trees
were bearing and the land and valleys back of the lake were planted
to the very mountains, Hn the
slopes were freed of tbelr burden of
pine trees. Woodlands gave place
to orchards of apples, pears, peaches.

fitting than Summerland, applied to
tbe new district which is the snnnv

clavcd Dean Mtlnor Roberts of tho
University of Washington, In snenklng
ul lhe Hoard of Trude luncheon to the
Canadian Mining nattltute. says the
Vancouver Province.
iieiui Roberta is woli acquainted
I with the resources of llrltlsh Columbia, having made extensive investlga-
i lions of mining properties on the
Coast. Whllo It Is not likely that the
provincial Iron ure deposits -will prove
to he as extensive as thoso of the
Lake Superior region. Sufficient exploration work has been carried on to
prove that there nre at least come millions of Ions of ore available. To say
tho least, lt would tako some time for
a medium sized plant to smelt that
amount of ore, declared the speaker.
British Columbia is practically unexplored, and It Will be (hundreds of
years before it, enn be claimed the
for mineral wealth of llrltlsh Columbia has all been located.
Conditions are fast becoming such
Ihat Iron smelting will necessarily develop. The Province has an amount
of potential cheap hydro-electric
power, fuel in plenty and thc market
for pig iron is dally becominng grcta-
er. Sevdrul hundred thousands of
tons of Iron ,vould be used by the
larger manufacturers of this coast,
while [he lessor amount would be taken by smaller industries.
Dean Roberts pointed out that more
than one-third of the exports from
British Columbia ports last year were
minerals, while one in live of the manufacturing   plants   in   the   Province
ire making goods, either directly or
ihdioctly, with the mineral production
of tlte Province.
Ho urged merchants and business
men to co-o(ierate to a greater extent witli those engaged in mining nnd
suggested the establishment of Industries here, which would mnko use of

Think* Kxrhe Tax on Gold
(M in ArU Would Benefit
Pn.. vision tor an excise tax on Rold
used In the arts an Oflposed to Hie
present taxation on gold mines
through machinery and in other ways,
was embodied in a resolution presented to tlie meeting of thc Canadian
Mining Institute at Vancouver, by Mr.
F. H. Holler, of Surf Inlet Mine. Various views were expressed on the
whole subject of taxntion as it affected miners, but no action was taken.
The (iiicHtion wilt come up for final
d 19iio.il tion at another time.
Thc discussion ranged over a wide
Held, one speaker expressing tlie onln
ion that thc .present system in Cannda
of allowing the banks to issue paper
currency far In excess of tho gold
supply should lit- abolished and a national banking system adopted. Another member slated Unit the principle!; involved in economics were as
Immutable before the war as tbey
aro today and that any attempt to
change them would only result In disaster.
In presenting his resolution, Mr.
Holler said that thc .proBcnt production ot gold wns GO per cent, of that
of normal ; times and that on the
North American continent the consumption of gold in the arts (Jewelers
and manufacturers) amounted to |10,-
000,000 more than was actually produced every year. Tlie South African
fields hnd a larger production than
that used In tho arts and this helped
the reserve of gold. The question in
the mind of thc speaker -was why gold
mines should be operated at no profit,
and in many cases at a loss, and manufacturers still be supplied with gold
nt tho old price of $20 au ounce. If
the gold mines did not get some relief
in the Immediate future many of
them would cease to operate.
i Mr. Hollor suggested that the gold
j used In the arts be taxed and the
j money so raised bo employed as a
.brum,, for tbe gold-mining industry.
also provided for the appointment of
a committee to take up with the Pro-
the question of gold mine taxation.
Supporting th resolution, Mr. K. A.
Huggan. of Vancouver, said that -the
United States had already taken action to rectify the situation by withdrawing the Immense Bum used In
gambling on the stock exchange,
while the Bank of England had raised
its bank Interest to the abnormal rate
of (i per cent Tho effect was going to
be lo remedy thc inflation of currency,
in Canada, tho speaker claimed, the
bank., were allowed to do too much
"kite ilylng" and to Issue an excessive
amount of currency. It was the price
of the paper pound sterling thot had
depreciated and not the price of tho
gold pound sterling.
Mr. Hnggen informed to audlencu
that the Hedley Gold Mining Com pan j
of this Province, ono of the largest
gotd-produolhg companies here for
the past Ui years, had anounced that
It would close down Its mine nt the
end of the ynnr off account of the income tax. He admitted thnt this tax
hnd beon he result nf a in Is linden; and
Mr. George II. Turnbull endorsed
the previous speaker's remarks on
paper currency.
Dr. Hodge of the University of British Columbia, said that the miners
themselves largely to blame for the
present conditions. Legislators the
world over were willing to do the
right thing if the wily were .pointed
out to them. He gave notice ot a mate have a committee appointed by Uie
C.M.I, to thoroughly Investigate the
whole question ami, provided by machinery placed at its disposal, bring
Its conclusions to the notice of the
various .provincial legislatures and
the Dominion Government.
Dean llrock, of ho University of
British Columbia, said that the trouble was that taxalou question.! were
generally decided on by men not acquainted with the subject and the
miners did not help them.
Another speaker criticized the proposed excise taxation as impossible.
He declared that the standard of gold
would not be interfered with aud that
he whole rouble In thc economic
world at present was due to tho fact
that one-half of the total wealth of
thc world had been destroyed during
thc war.

headed for disaster," this speaker
'Geological Methods as Applied at
Butte," waB Uie title of an interesting
address delivered by Mr. Paul Bil-
Ugsley, of Seattle, head of the geological department ou the Anaconua
mines. He showed how the geologist
by taking minute nots and using a
careful system of checking over these
notes, could be of very matorial benefit to the miner as had been demonstrated at Butte where the geological
deparment takes care of all the ex-
ploraiou work.
The speaker drew applause when
he said that present-day geologists
did not assume an air of superlotlty
over the practical miner, but, by cooperating with them attalan results
far in advance of old methods.
Mr. H. N. Thompson, of Vancouvor,

talk from Mr. W. H. Jepp, an eminent Australian engineer, on methods

Tho Kerr Lake has put into prac-
lco the proposed system of workmen's

the new plan promises to give entire

during the labor strike of last summer the mining companies refused to

depth of 50 foot, the work being
done by hand steel. The production
of silver from thin Initinl operation
■was 107 bags or high grime containing approximately 10,000 ounces of
silver. This is sufficient to moro
than pay for all expensed of the
Trethewey In the operation of the
Castle In Gowganda. The shaft bas

the results encountered were similar
;to that of the first tow shots taken

length of 300 feet. Several other
veins occur In thia area, nnd the
management is very anxious to develop them under ground, and for
this purpose will fun a crosscut to
them from the vein the shaft is being sunk ou tho 75-foot level.
Some Inconvenience la being experienced in the taking In of the
mining machinery, but with the arrival of winter weather of tbe past
week, it is expected tbat the -plant
will be completely installed In very
abort time, which will permit of extensive development o£ the properly. I
Good results are    also   attending
the develpment of the original Castle claims    to the   ooitth.    A    new j
vein is being developed on  fourth j
level, and some spectacular -patches,
of high grade ore are being encoun- j
(ered.    The vein   is about    eleven
inches in  width, and is developing
good milling ore. while the management is hopeful  of encountering a
consistent shoot of high grade.    A
crosscut  is being  run to this vein
on the third level. A massive cobalt
vein wus found cutting across thla
vein  running about  four  inches in
width, no silver could be seen 111 It-
but indications are very  promising.
Development work  on   the    fourth
level Is just reaching the vein system.
The geneal opinion of responsible
mining men who have examined the

most important new silver discovery
