nelson Dim m
la a well printed, handsomely illustrated issue of 118
pages, The Nelson News, has
published its annual review of the
growth and progress of the Kootenay
sod Boundary districts. On the whole the publication is one well calculated to convey to the outside world
a .true and lasting impression of this
ujagnilicent section ol tbo Province,
tin News has been very lair In its
treatment of tbe entire district, and
targe space is devoted to the Cranbrook district. In particular, so far
as our chief Industrie are concerned,
the News pays special attention to
lumbering, mining and fruitgrowing.
II space permitted we should gladly
reproduce from its   colums much ol
son a traveller on the Canadian Pa.
cine railway passes, without thought
ol the tremendous agricultural possibilities contained in tbe vast stretch
ot arable land, many ol tile recbmt
tracks to be found anywhere In tbe
Interior. Kor Instance whilst at the
outset a visitor to Cranbrook might
conclude that it is merely a railroad
and lumbering centre, on further investigation and oiler enjoying the opportunity ol seeing some ol the surrounding district, one Is inspired
with the tact that tributary to Its
main centre at all points ol ton compass the area .particularly suitable
lor agricultural purposes Includes
hundreds or thousands ol acres ol the
finest arablo lands anywhere In the
province ol British Columbia—a view
trequently expressed by government
officials whose business it lias been to
survey and report on tho lands. While this is the cose tbe Indisputable
tact remains that up to date only a
very Insignificant portion of this area
has been brought under cultivation,
duo to conditions that are quite understandable.
In the first instance considerable
tracts of this land have been held under timber license and the (act that
much ol it is largely covered with
timber has hitherto created} the impression in the   minds ol many visi-
the really good material it contains tors that the land  was not suitable
regarding tbe development ol these
industries in this district, but we
can only, at this time, give an ex-
tract or two.
In reference to the lumber interests, The News says:—
Uany million dollars In capital is
Invested   in the lumber   industry ol
lor agricultural purposes. However,
in several specific Instances that idea
has been entirely exploded. Hundreds of settlers have come In and
hundreds are in sight. In many cases)
they have not been located sufficient

leading companies in the district indicate that the "total output during
the past year has been heavy and estimates in nearly every case indicate a
much larger production lor 1913.
Prospects from a marketing point ot
viewfc are regarded by some as good;
other's refer to the need tor increased prices on account of tbe growing
eott ot production and to the fact
that the lumbermen of British Colombia are suffering through tbe competition from United States mills
which dump their surplus on th*
prairie market.
Bcww are given accounts of the operations of some of thn companies in
Kookenay and Boundary with a view
to indicating tbe tremendous Importance'ot tho industry to the district

The Baker Lumber company of Waldo has 1190,000 invested In Its mill
and (2IW.01N1 in timber limits, which
am estimated to be worth (1,300,000.
At the mill and yeards 115 men are
employed and 130 men work in the

output last year and
expects to manufacture 30,000,000

there, was no margin ol proot. Tho
outlook lor 1013 is stated by the
company to be excellent.
Over 33,000,000 leet was the production ol the Crow's Nest l«ass Lumber company, limited, which has
mills at Wardner and Oolloway, thc
exact figure being 33,539,000 feet. The
estimate tor 1913 Is approximately

While Cranbrook wants settlers,
and has room tor many thousands,
tbe general Impression Is that efforts
should he made to secure tne class ol
settlers inclined to derota their
efforts to mixed farming, and the
reason which prompts that impression is given in this way: "While it
is admitted that Ctanbrook district
can produce Iruit and vegetables ol
unrivalled quality, to engage in exilic company elusive fruit or vegetable production
at the outset entails a heavier expend
dlture and delay In securing results
than the average settler comes prepared to lace." That view is held
by many ol the men who have achieved brilliant returns, even with exclusive fruit or vegetables.
Within a radius ot 35 miles it is
calculated at a low estimate that
Cranbrook is the centre of some 400,
000 acres ot the finest fang, suitable
lor fruit and vegetable growing and
stock raising. Orchards from 10 to
12 years ol age In this district are
tbe exception; In fact, there are only
three ol any account, but within the
post lew years between 3,000 and
4,000 acres have been cultivated and
planted. Fruit ranches which have
arrived at the hearing stale are at

In a recent article is The Iferald
the writer dealt with the Chicago
Land Show in broad, general terms.
It Is, therefore, no* Appropriate
that a special word be said as to the
mineral exhibit In which Cranbrook
and East Kootenay were most interested.
A small box of loose samples containing specimens of the ores Irom
the Yukon, Portland Canal, Cariboo
country, Rossraad, the Sloetjn and a
tew from the Lardo was seat by the
Mining Department at Victoria and
proved highly useful. For those
really skilled and interested In .mining, geology and scientific mineralogy

writer ha* very cordially t» thank
Mr. Monty Morgan at Nekton) wen
an irresistible lure. TMf cats*
from ' many points once it became
known that what has heen proven to
be genuine platinum ore was on show.
Seeing the ore, studying It, they
were disappointed at the absence ot
weight which might be expected.
They talked and argued most learnedly, 'plunging milts deep into th*

It U striate that even the platinum ore did not interest tbe mining
men nearly az much as the mineralized dioritet Irom the Alliance Group
on White Fieh Creek, belonging to
the Evans Brothers. It is regretta-
Me that the writer never bad a
chase* of making on examination of
this' extraordinary property, but
tram years ot intimate knowledge ol
the owners and of their thorough reliability, be could vouch, on their
Credit, tor the facts as they gave
'them. Putting aside the fact that
there are ten millions ot tons ol this
low grade capper ore "in sight" (the
term Is used m its strict mining and
technical sense) and that the property Is admirably situated tor handling this immense mass on the quarry
system, the ore was a geological
puzzle. Every mining man could un-

Mr. William Myers, ol Fort Steele,
most kindly helped the writer to secure. It was a marvel how those

For these reasons the gold-nickel
ores Irom the War Eagle Group on
Skookumchuck belonging to Messrs,
McNalr, Johnson and Nelson, created
tbe greatest sensation ot any ore
shown at Chicago. Everyone wanted
to examine it and "belt" it. And
there is "heft" In plenty to it. The
scientists took away specimens for
examination and some ol them came
back to tbe writer declaring the ore
to be in a class by itself.
Like our Provincial Mineralogist,
Mr. W. Fleet Robinson, they could
say it contained gold, nickel, silver,
zinc, lead, cobalt, tungsten and iron,
eight metals, but not a man ol them
could put a name to the combination. The ore is unique. it was
fortunate that the writer could
speak of the property trom personal
inspection and could declare his firm
conviction that tbe claims are worthy ot tbe. most exhaustive examination and development.
The proper study lor mankind is
man, according to Alexander Pope,
whose poetry, by tbe way, is now
about as much admired as castor oil
for breakfast. The aphorism is true
and a trifle of study of the average
man shows that down deep in his nature is a natural love ot mere color
Isr the   color sake.   In this   regard
Price Ellison In deciding to include
them in thc Provincial exhibit. Tbey
grasped thc eyes and the attention
of many thousands of people whom
fruit and grains did not concern1 in
tbe slightest and once you had them
in conversation It was ■ no trouble
to preach the general doctrine that
there is tto country like Canada and
that British Columbia Is its jewel.
They were ready and willing to accept the gospel" "Come up to B. C.
and use your own intelligence anx
brains and make ypurselves a comfortable home where streams are
bright and skies arc clear and where
tbe air is not a dirty mixture ol
soot and smoke and sulphur.
Just to find out what tbe average
man most desired to examine in the
tbe mineral lice, the writer used to
often ask:—"Is there any particular
class of ore you would like to sec.'"
With very rare exceptions the answer
was "Well, I'd like to see the gold
rock II you have any?" That is where,
tlie ore trom the claims on Perry
Creek In which William J. Rollins,
Doctor Rutleojge, Cuss. Theiss, OjforJ
ge T. Carr and his associate, Mr.
llainey of Chicago, are interested,
mode their permanent and enduring,
mark. People excepted to find gold
sticking out ol the rock like raisins
in a cake. Still, they all found it to
their own complete satisfaction, all
he same. It was ''tool's gold"—
iron pyrahes— they usually mistook
for the genuine, and then they bod to
be shown the pure metal In the rock.
For this purpose Mr. Catt provided
the writer with some beautlul specimens which he kept in his pockets
for prudence sake as it is said there
art. two or three people in Chicago
who might, in a moment ol forget-
fulness, attach them as souvenirs.
These specimens made people sit up
and begin to take real notice ot the
land they i-auie Irom. Mr. Ueorge T.
Carr did plenty of good work for
Cranbrook and Perry Creek at Chicago. He was ever ready to help the
writer in thc demonstrations at the
booth and could speak Irom personal
knowledge of the worth and value ot
the district with which he has been
long and honorably associated. In
addition he brought many men of
capital and influence to see the exhibits and beyond any reasonable doubt
he was the means certainly ol helping;
Perry Creek, a lamous old time gold
camp, to came hy its own again.
To sum up what was effected by the
mineral exhibit at Chicago it can be
said that Cranbrook was proven to
he the center of an area embracing
the St. Eugene, Aurora and Society
Girl at Movie, the Sullivan, North
Star and Stemwlnder at Kimberley,
thc Evans Group, Dominion Consolidated, Hodgson's Group and the Big

rises from no desire to revive dead

In proof of our sincerity in making
tbe foregoing statement we may
state that during lost week, wo place
before the present council eleven
names from which we invited them to
choose three men to assist them on
tbe council tor the ensuing year. This
arrangement would have still guaran
teed to the piesent Mayor and hi*
colleagues the bal inc. ol power, and
would have eliminate : the |,..«»il*yity

This compromise was llatlj refused

and we were consequently compelled
to eonK out ami state as alteriintlv*
policy and suggest an alternative
Council to carry that policy through.
We therefore appeal tor your support nn the toUowing grounds:

It is a f.ict that tlie elector, of
this city are paying in municipal tax
ntlon a hielier rate than any other
city, lame or small, in Hritiflh Columbia. Why is this? Is Hie so attractive here as compared with other
points in the province that It Is
worth paying a top price lor? Olad
as w-e are to he citizens of the "Star
City ol the Kootenays" we object to
-paying so high a price for tbe privilege of living here, and we think we
voice the objections of many electors
an well. 71 returned to tbe council,
we will institute u thorough enquiry
into the subject, nnrt will endeavor
to do everything in our power to lessen thc burden ol local taration consistent with true proereBS and efne-
ency in Municipal Departments,
We think that the utmost publicity
should l,e given to all proceeding* ot
the council, and would afford every

Copies of an address given by Mr.
X. W. Rowell, K.C, leader of the
Liberal party in Ontario, on ''What
Liberalism Has Done for Canada,"
before the Montreal Reform club, on
November 10th, last, will be ready
for free distribution in a short time
Trom the Central Liberal Information
office, 63 Sparks street, Ottawa. Any
person desiring a copy of this ad-
drtss.will receive it at once on writing to the information office.
In this address Mr. Rowell gave a
careful outline of the work done by
the Liberal party in shaping the destinies of Canada, not only in her domestic affairs, but also in her relations with the mother country and
the rest of thc empire, especially
with regard to the development of
political and trade relations and Canada's share in the problems of defence. He particularly showed the
effect of the Liberal principles on the
main events, in Canadian history—
the early struggles for responsible
government.. Canadian confederation; Canada's evolution from a
colony to the status of a self-governing nation, and finally her entry into
imperial affairs with the creation of
the imperial conference.
Mr. Rowell lays stress upon the
nob.fe. work done by Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier as bead of the Liberal party in
this national and imperial development, and shows that "It was the
trluniph of the federal principle—thc
Liberal principle—giving local autonomy- to the provinces that has made
possiblo tbe development of our Canadian Confederation as it is today;
and it is the extension of that principle to the other self-governing
Dominions of thc empire that has
made possible the growth and expansion under the British system of
government of harmonious co-operation with the motherland that we
witness today."
Mr. Howell's address throughout is
one of keen interest, and should bej
read hy all Liberals as an illuminative justification of their political
faith. .

Were I     a    Canadian, said an Englishman    to     the     Turtmlo   Star,  I
should view    the proposed naval pol-
Icj  with grave disquiet and apprehension, if not, indeed,    with something
oppreaching to dismay. That is   not
tn   say   that   it [B    without   merit
from soma points of view   The British admiralty gains three new super-
Dreadnoughts— with the increased expense    attendant, on   its part,      of
manning   and   maintaining tbe same.
The British people, who foot the the
lull for the last two items, are    reassured of  what they    have always
well known   they    could depend on—
Canada's aid in time of need.     Complete   control   is   left with Downing
street—and Downing street, ever, (or
practical purposes, the same,     loves
complete control.    So far so good—
for the United   Kingdom.  But where
do Canada   and   the  Canadian come
There arc  certain conditions       in
which a monetary gift from one country to another may reflect kudos    on
the giver.    A gift of money by    an
immensely wealthy nation like Oreat
Britain to one of her colonies or   dependencies, for example, would be
sort of   Christmas  box    or   "tip,
which a daughter might well, without
loss of self-respect, accept from    an
affectionate   mother.      But a monetary    gift from   one nation   which,
however potentially rich, is still, at
this   moment,      immeasurably   less
wealthy than the one to whom      tbe
gift is made, savors, and, howsoever
speciously disguised, must savor,    of
tribute.    And   for    my part, I have
always fondly   believed that it    was
one of the chief glories of the British
empire—as      distinguished   from all
other   empires, either past or    contemporary—that nothing in the    nature of tribute was exacted from any
of   its     component     self-governing
parts.    Were it otherwise, indeed, it
would seem to many of us impossible
to reconcile the theory of empire   in
which,   happily,   we loyally believe,
with the principle of nationality, the
sentiment of  nationality,    and    tins
consciousness   of   what   must be, in
each of the Dominions of the King, a
separate   past,   present, ami future,
history.     And that reflection brings
me to my next point.    Which is that
the proposed naval policy makes   not
for the   enlargement, but for       the
narrowing, of   the Canadian national
spirit, by impoverishing    tbe latter,
which should be, and is, capable    of
forming the most    fruitful field    for
the cultivation of that larger    patriotism to which a sane Canadian ism
must lead, and   which must, in turn,
he represented by a sane imperialism.
In vain shall you try to feed      tbe
heart of   the empire by starving     a
nation's soul.     It is because I   consider   that    (however  undesignedly)
this will be tlie likely effect of     tbe
Borden policy that    I should, were 1
a Canadian,    determinedly oppose it,
and mainly on    that specific ground.
It impinges on that principle of unity
in diversity    to    which   the empire
owes its peculiarly   distinctive cohesion.     If,      and so far    as, It dors
that, it is not a forward, but a    retrograde st^p in the history of    tbe
relations of tbe Dominions with   tbe
mother    country.      "Father      said
'Turn,' and we all turned,"'.is not
pood scheme    of family government,
when thc family—whether ol children
or of nations—has reached tbe grown
up stage.    A Canadian navy, ot  tbe
kind favored   by Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
although   possibly along more generous lines, must   inevitably have fostered—if   for   no   other   reason, because it   was   Canada's   own bairn,
horn and nurtured    of her—a patriotic   sentiment   which,   in   its turn,
would have embraced the   empire of
which thc navy—the Canadian navy-
would have    formed a self-manned, a
self-maintained, and   a self-sufficient,
unit of defence.    A Borden contribution will,  on thc other band,   mean
the repression of this peculiar interest which Canada would have shown
in her    own bantling,   reared under
her own eyes,    and,   perhaps,       on
second thoughts, some resentment at
the enforced deprivation which    has
heen done her in    tho name ot    en>
But, it is said, Canada will have a
member on the committee at imperial defence, and so will have some
control, in return for her contribution, over the policies which may
lead to wars. Could any more futile kind ol control be imagined? One
representative out of fourteen or fifteen—about half of whom will be
British cabinet ministers, and the
remainder experts of various kinds,
while all of them must, of necessity,
he hetter versed, in matters alike of
foreign affairs and of Imperial defence, than the Canadian member,
coming fresh to it all, can possibly
hope to be! What sort of weight Is
his voice—even if he finds it-likely
to carry in a committee of that
kind? If he dissents from a con*
cluslan, he is almost certain to be
outvoted—for this committee, so fat
as the general public knows, has always been characterized by apprort-
aate nnxntty. If he agrees, at
once the argument   can be set up fos'
further contributions, emergency
otherwise, that Canada's representative concurred in the expenditure
which may be rendered necessary.
And yet, even at thc most, the committee is but an advisory body practically appointed by the British
premier of the day. Still, it is not
unlikely that from it may spring a
sort of imperial executive committee
—in which case the last stage of
Canada, as regards the likelihood of
her being dragged, willy-nilly, into
the whirlpool of European militarism, will be worse than the first. It
will, of course, be argued that the
' 'emergency" contribution means
nothing of all this—that no question
ol the restriction of selt-govcranient
fs involved, that Canada will no
more than heretofore be embroiled in
the militarist squabbles of tbe powers. That is as it may be. Self-
government is one of those tilings of
which it is easier to yield up an ell
than to regain an inch. And sometimes It is wiser—and yet not disloyal—to "paddle your own canoe"
than to be a passenger on a great
big man-of-war.

CltANBKOOK, B. C, January •». TO
Owing to schedule changes in the
l(*g;il rat* at Victoria and consequent changes iu the various papers
throughout the province the Herald
announces that beginning with January 1st. the following charges will 'ministration given us during the past
he made for advertising ail legal n<>- ' 12 months, there can he but little

ing electors in favor of Mr. Santo fu

Iu our opinion Mr, Santo is iu
every personal respect a creditable
ean-didate, and, could he demonstrate
tlie possession of accurate knowledge
of civic administration, it might well'
be that, tbe ratepayers would seize
the opportunity to make radical
changes at the City Hall. However,
l here is nothing to even hint nf practical business efficiency in the admin-
istrat of the City, in either the literature so far circulated, or in the
street canvass of the Santo workers.

In the course of an eight .column
Interview, published iu the local
government organs, Premier McBride
extends wbai be terms a New Year
itfessagu to Ihe people of British
Columbia. Careful perusal of this
lengthy and verbose message fails to
disclose any knowledge on Hie pari
of thc premier of tbe existence of
South East Kootenay as an important section of the great province ol
British Columbia.
It is a remarkable thing that the
premier of tbe province, should give
out sucli a statement as we refer to,
published iu the Nelson News of Jan.
1st, and will, undoubtedly he pu*
Halted in pamphlet form and circulated wherever the government has
immigration agents stationed, in Kn-
gland, tbe United States and through
out Kastem Canada. In the course
id his long message, the premier lias
much to say auent tbe various res
nurces of the province, enumerating
this and that point as being of spe
eiul Importance, having reference t>
some vast area of undeveloped oi
partially developed wealth, hut of
the resources of South Kast Koote
nay, of the magnilteent si retches tu'
lumber, thousand of acres of agriml
tural lands, known to be the best iu
the province, and of its proved nun
eral wealth, the premier has never a
word to say. Why is this so'' Is it
because he has such a supreme emit
empt for the electors of this section
that be believes lie can treat Heir
ambitions and aspirations with 'vl.al
appears in be studied neglect"' No
portion of the province has been tiion
loyal to the McBride government
than this of South Bast Kootenay.
It has been practically unanimous in
its support of premier McBride anil
his government and by way of sho.v
ing his appreciation of the trust thus
imposed in him, he ignores it all to
gether in the course of what purports
to be a review of the development oi
the province during the past twelve
Premier McBride has probably some
recollection of the worm that turned
lie may have iiis memory relccshed
in a very practical manner, next time
electors of South East Kootcnnj
have the opportunity of expressing
an opinion at the polls.
, Tlie Herald is free to confess that
the progress of the present Municipal
Campaign leaves it precious little of
a substantial character upon which
to comment, There has been no public meeting and the only definite issues WO have, in so far as they can
be so designated, before us, are contained in a number id letters and
special campaign articles, published
elsewhere in this issue and coining
from both sides iu the Mayoralty
contest. Careful perusal of what
may be termed the Santo propaganda
discloses an unfortunate carelessness
in the making .if charges, notably
with regard lo tlie Water Works.
Examination of the public accounts
and the statement recently issued by
tbe Council, audited by. Mr. .John
Cholditch. does not warranl the assertions contained in some ot Mr.
Santo's literature regarding the Water works being conducted at a loss.
There are other instances of this sort
of thing, whloh cannot but have the
effect of   minimizing   the influence of
be reelected for another term, and
that the bulk of his council will include the men who have subscribed to
his platform.
Kditur of the "Cranbrook Herald"
Dear Sir,—
Will you kindly allow me space in
your valuable paper to contradict
the report that was so strongly circulated that I had taken an active
part iu the last Dominion Election
while acting as Postmaster, at Kim-
bcrley. This report was started by
the two so called leading Conservatives in Kimberley for-the express purpose of bringin about my dismissal
pose of bringing about my dismissal
Postmuster; which they finally
succeeded iu doing against the protest
succded in doing against the protest
signed by one hundred and eight citizens of Kimberley. There was a report to the effect that I was out
electioneering. This can lie proven to
be false.
Iu consideration of the above facts,
ami in justice to myseff, 1 believe
that a thorough investigation should
have heen held V> enquire into tbe
facts of the case, and I am positive
that should such a course have been
taken I could easily have refuted any
of the above false accusations.
I would ask the Conservative Party
iu fair play to myself and to the
constituents of Kimberley, to appoint
a Commission to make an investigation of this affair.
Thanking you for space In your paper, I rema'in,
Respect fully yours,
Thomas Summers.
The timber resources of Quebec are
enormous, though greatly diminished
in past years by forest fires. The
privately owned timber lands comprise aboui U,Odd,UIHl acres and are
able to supply 500,000 to 1,000,000
cords of wood per annum for years to
come. The Island of Anticosti alone
is able to produce 8(1,000 to 100,000
cords per annum for years, a good
portion of which, however, will probably he converted into pulp in the
near future, a's a large mill os now
process of predion there. Pulp
Is are also iu process of construction in other parts of this district,
so that the pulp industry, especially
n this district, is bound to witness
i great boom in tbe near future.
Tbe public schools reopened on
Monday morning of this week for the
summer term. At tlie general Public School, Principal Cranston reports thai the attendance was about
the same as laslyeur. It is a little
too early in the year for uew pupils
to come in.
The manual training school has also
resumed work, under thc capable and
painstaking supervision of Mr. A. H.
But the most interesting thing of
all in connection with our local educational system, is that the line new
school building, to the southwest of
the centre of the city, is open and
well attended by some 34 children,
many of whom would have been unable to attend school during the winter months, had it not been for the
addition of this building, so situated
as to meet the requirements of a
large number of settlers upon the
bills, as well many of _ the citizens,
residing in that section of the city.
Last winter a number of their children did not attend school at all, it
hoing too cold and too long a walk
for youngsters to make. Now everything is more comfortable for all
The new building is a large, sub-
tan-tial, red brick and concrete structure. The two large class rooms, 30
x 27, with ceilings 14 feet, splendidly
ventilated by large windows, are as
handsome and commodious as can be
seen anywhere. There is also a large
basement, half of which is devoted to
tbe beating apparatus, tbe other half,
vacant just at present, should make
a splendid play room for the children
in stormy and particularly cold weather. Miss Kothnie is principal ol
the new school, and she is very proud
of the scene of her new labors and of
the bright bunch ol little ones she
has under her care.

On Tuesday afternoon a lire alarm
came in from Hurwell ave., intimating that the residence ol Albert Slater was alire. With their customary
despatch the lire brigade were quickly
on hand. The fire had, however, in
he tew minutes that had elapsed,
obtained a strong hold on the upper
portion of the building, and despite
the praiseworthy energy ol thc fire
brigade could not be got under control for quite a long while. I'nfort
unately a large proportion of the furniture, etc., was destroyed or badly
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Slater were
out of town at thc time of the fire
returning home late last night to
learn that their dwelling place was
practically uninhabitable and that the
greater part ol their furniture was
lit only for the scrap heap.
Fortunately there was insurance on
both thc house and the contents. It
Is surmised that the fire oecured
through an overheated flume connecting the furnace witb an upstairs
room. A fire had been lighted
in the furnace earlier in
the afternoon by Mr. Frank Detail,
who hanked it up and left everything
apparently sate. Within twenty minutes of so doing, the lire broke out
with results as above.

WyclifTe, there are thousands of
acres of land ready for mixed farming, grazing and fruit lands, u WyclifTe, eight miles out of Cranbro.ik
K. L: Staples A Co. have '100 acres
in farm crops and nine acres .if irrigated gardens. Onions, cabbage, celery, beets, turnips, parsnips, carrots,
lettuce, radishes and every kind of
vegetable grow here in abumLmee.
''We have had an exceptionally good
season and are quite satisfied with
results," said Mr. Staples. Tho bulk
of our products were disposed of in
the lumber camps and we had no difficulty in disposing of the surplus.
Prices were certainly lower this year
than hitherto, but a man who siud-
ies his business carefully can i.-ake
money even at this year's jiriccs.
Calgary took three carloads of cabbage and four carloads of potatoes
from us this year, and our riot
houses are well stocked with ;.ll
kinds of garden vegetables. V'e are
storing five carloads of .potatoes, six
carloads of sugar beets, about Ui.OOO
head of cabbage, 701) bushels of onions, 20,000 bead of celery, .csides
all the surplus garden vegetables
raised. The climate here is splendid
for vegetable growing. We have kept
onions in the ground all the winter
and are able to pick them green in
the early spring.
At Marysville, Peter Lund has
1,000 acres of tbe higher! quality of
soil, 120 acres being under r.iitiva-
lion. This Spring 2"> acres of the
old land was plowed and sown to
oats and 20 acres plowed '.bis fall
and sown to fall wheat and timothy.
In thc spring f>5 aires were , ai to
potatoes, four carloads of which were,
shipped and the remainder pUcid in
the root houses awaiting better
prices. Five acres were planted with
apple trees this spring, With the exception of four tnes, all survived.
They have grown well and are in a
healthy condition. Never at anytime has there been any difficulty in
marketing the crops, which found
ready buyers at Fernie, Cranbrouk,
Crows Nest, Galloway, Bull River
and Kimberley, with continual enquiries from l.etbbridge and s<»i.;h;
also Macleod and Calgary.
With new Industries und increasing
population it is calculated that I'ran-
brook at present is compelled lo import nearly DO per cent of the foodstuffs consumed, and it is thought
that it will be fully 10, if not liO,
years before the immediate surrounding districts will be in a position to
supply tbe whole demand and have
anything like a large [Umiit
Shipment to the prairies.

It has been brought to my attention that a statement is being
circulated around town that I have stated I did not want to see any
Railroad men on the Council.   This is an absolute falsehood.
What I did say, at the so-called Compromise Meeting. In discussing the propused names of Candidates on both Tickets, with
fir. McFarlane, was, that owing to the difficulty in obtaining a
quorum, it would be inadvisable to have too many Railroad men on

will agree with my views on this matter.

Ladies and Gentlemen.—I beg to
offer myself as a candidate for Aid-
man. Assuring you of my determination to work earnestly and faithfully for the welfare and progress of
'.he City of Cranbrook if honored
with a majority of your votes.
Yours faithfully,
To Hie Electors,
Ladies and Gentlemen:—
I have been requested by a number
of prominent ratepayers to allow
my name to be placed before you once
more as a Candidate for tbe ollice of
I have consented, and I trust that
my record in the past, both as Alderman and Mayor, is such that I can
confidently rely on your vote and
My attention hap, been drawn to a
circular letter dated January 4th.,
issued to the Electors on behalf of
Mr. Santo and bis siipporlers. As
tho statements contained therein
show such a lack of knowledge of Municipal Affairs, I only intend to refer
to same very briefly.
With regards to tlie proposed compromise. I might say that I met
Mr. McFarfaue and discussed this
matter, and he submitted a list ot
ten persons whom his party were
willing to support, from which he
wanted me to agree that he and his
associates should decide finally as to
who the three should be. I told Mr.
McFarlane that I could not make any
definite arrapgements as there were
other parties to be considered. He
also stated for his part that he
could make no promise that any arrangement which might be agreed
upon, would be acceptable to his party as the majority of them were anxious for a light. It was mutually
agreed that thc meeting was to las
treated as confidential, yet it will be
seen how much be has respected this
confidence. I therefore feel that I
am at liberty to place before you a
statement of the facts in fairness to
myself and my supporters.
It is true that taxes arc high and
tbe reason is that we have better
schools, water and sewer systems
than any Town of our size in Canada
and Craiibook is unsurpassed by any
Town in her extremely low death
A further word regarding taxes. It
might be pointed out that the
amount levied by direct taxation
last year was $-10,161.95. The
amount expended over which the
Council had no control was $30,303.
40, being made up of Debenture repayments und School Board requirements. The Debentures have heen
voted on by Ratepayers and arc necessarily a fixed charge over which
the present Council or the ensuing
Council hnve nothing to do but to
pay. i
With regard to the assessment |
([iicstiun, I may say that if there has
been any discrimination (I know of
none) the responsibility rests entirely
with the Court of Revision, not the
Assessor. As a matter of fact there
were not a dozen appeals last year
against improvements.
1 also notice that a reference is
made to the $500.00 Bond required by
Plumbers under the Plumbing By-
Law, and the inference is that such
a bond enables the local plumbers to
charge what they like and preven*s
outside competition. This is very
misleading; these bonds can be obtained from an Indemnity Insurauce
Company for the small sum of $10.00
per annum.
Tbe sole purpose of the bond clause
which appears in every by-law of any
City of any size in Canada, is for the-
protection of the public health. If
bewer work is improperly conducted,
there is great danger of infection
in fact, as much danger as under the
old cesspool system and the object
of putting that clause in the by-law-
is, as I say, to protect the public.
Why an annual fee ot $10.00 should
prevent any reputable plumber from
carrying on business in Cranbrook is
heyond my comprehension.
I, too, believe in public ownership,
whether it be a non-revenue producing one like the sewerage .system, or
a revenue producer like the Water
Works. With regards to the latter,
an extraordinary statement is made
that the water system is being run
at a loss. What are the facts; take
the last two years:—
Ull   ....
...   19,563.811
...   19,728.(16
..   $89,292.53
6,1112 30
Net gain two years...
Less repayments on account
of original   Debentures ... 11,234,00
Actual net profit over all
cost for running expenses and repayment of money borrowed to buy the
.plant    $16,838.62
Of course some considerable capital
charges have been incurred but whoever heard of a business man writing
his capital investments againt his
profit and loss account. Nevertheless
even if these capital investments are
taken into consideration there is still
ft a profit over all running expenses
turc repayments of over all running
extensions, hydrants etc., and debenture repayments of over $8,200.00 during the past two years.
In closing 1 once more beg of youi
support not only for myself but for
Messrs! Clapp, Carr, Erickson, Kennedy, Ward, and G. K. Leask as Aldermen.
Yours obediently
District of   East Kootenay.

Sir .John Macdonald stood out i
'troops ready for immediate service,"
(Special (.'orrespondence)
Keen 'disappointment and indignation will be fell, throughout tbe
eountry generally, and in Saskatchewan in particular, at the refusal of
the Saskatchewan Conservative
party to assist further iu the invest
igatiion by a select Committee ot the
Legislative Assembly into the manner in which the last Provincla'
election bad been carried fin, and
particularly tbe part played by Hon.
Hubert Holers, who was in charge oi
tbe campaign for tbe Dominion government with lion. Dr. Roche and
their notorious charges respecting tho
voters' lists,
In view of tlie gravity oi the
charges made the appointment of this
committee of enquiry was generally
commended us a means oi vindlcnl
ing Saskatchewan's good name, and
tbe Conservatives, who leveled tho
charges, were looked to to bring for
ward their proofs without delay
Hut tbey remained silent, thus forcing Premier Scott to demand a rigid
Investigation as to the truth nf tbe
slanderous statements so freely scattered by thc Conservatives during
the campaign. It was a courageous
step for a government .so violently assayed—but, aina/ing to rtlate, Ihe
Tories tried to secure a postponment
and ditl all in their power lo hurk
the enquiry.
First tbey objected to the select
committee. Premier Scott showed
this was the proper procedure, hut
expressed Indifference so long as a
proper enquiry was enforced. Tlie
Tories insisted upon a judicial enquiry, althiugh they were not sure ol
that, and the Uegina Conservative
organ went so far as to say that tbe
members of the Saskatchewan Supreme Court Bench could not be relied
upon. Probably from a Tory partis
nn point of view they could not.
Eventually a select committee was
appointed. The government produced
its evidence to disprove the charge;-
made against it. The Tories did not
like this, threw up their hands and
refused to proceed further, their (lis
honorable tactics causing tbe suspciis
ion of the committee's work. It was
evident they did not want any real
enquiry, and subsequent faels showed
tlie reason for their prudent secrecy.
It was unanimously decided taht
the Press should he represented at
thc Committee's work, but as soon
as thc papers published reports ol
evidence distasteful to tbe Tories-
even without commenting upon it-
the latter declared that the enquiry
was being used for party purposes
although a judicial enquiry would
have given equal publicity.
The other reason given tor the
withdrawal of the Tories from Hie
Committee was that the Government
wounld not pay for their Counsel, although at the start they had proposal that, any counsel employed should
be paiil by the persons employing
them. II was plain that tbe evidence
adduced by tbe fiovernment made tbe
Tories long for cover, ami tbey resigned hurriedly.
In fact this evidence was a preliminary to that in the notorious Macdonald election. The Attorne\-(ien-
eral produced the papers and depositions in three cases which exposed
tbe campaign of coercion and InLlmld- flapporn
ation carried on by the Tories the
amongst the homesteaders sued''
One   homestead    inspector,     round      Contra
guilty of Intimidation, was sentenced,
and another Conservative worker
was sentenced on two similar charges—the latter iu defence claiming
thut bo Intimidated German homesteaders under instructions of the
Conservative candidate and a homestead inspector. The significance ol
ibis lies in the fact that !Kl per cent
of tho unnaturalized aliens in Saskatchewan are homesteaders who have
not yet received their patents, and
arc therefore particularly susceptible to Influence irom the ollicials of
the Interior Department at Ottawa.
in view of Ibis the charge that tho
aw was altered so us lo enfranchise
these aliens was not only false hut
ridiculous. Al the same time tlie
action of the Conservative organization in having a number of thorn pat
■ hi iln lists proves conclusively which
party   wanted them  lo vote.
In proof of ibis the Attorney-General presented ;i long list of these
unqualified men who bad been put on
the list in Maple Creek by the Conservatives, aud who voted. Similar
evidence was presented from the district ot Pipestone,
Both Hon. Mr. Rogers and Hon.
Dr. Roche wore invited to lay before
tbe Committee any proofs tbey could
'ii tbe sweeping charges they had
made, and both ignored tbe invitation thus tacltojy acknowledging not
only that tlun had no proofs, hut
that they were as anxious as tho rest
• ii th.- Tories lo avoid publicity regarding tin- work of their party iu
the Saskatchewan elections. Without
counting the later exposures iu Macdonald the whole course of the Tories
in Saskatchewan has proven that the
wild charges made have proven a boomerang which has hurt the Borden
(lovernmeiit even more t han they
Impel to injure their opponents.
During tho naval speech in the
House ,of Commons the Government
supporters undertook to jeer at thc
proposition laid down by Sir Wilfrid
I.auner that, although when Great
Britain was at war, Canada was at
war, it did not necessarily follow
that Canada must participate in
every war undertaken hy Croat Britain, either on sea or land.
In this the Tories showed characteristic ((.stability of policy as well
as ignorance of the history of their
own puny, coupled with their cust-
omary assumption that they were
the keepers of the loyaty of ihe Dominion, As a matter of fact, Laurier's
policy was in line with that laid
down In Sir .John Macdonald, al
though his action was in exact reverse to the Conservative chieftain's refusal to act.
In lKSfi during Ihe Sudan war, New
Smith Wales offered the Imperial
Governmenl a contlngeul of troopst
This was gratefully accepted, and
the Imperial War OITlce oaiiiii.unicat-
ed this -step to the other colonies, including the Mnctlonald Conservative
government ol Canada and intimated
that similar aid would he accepted
from    them  by    Gioal   Britain.   Sir
Canada's right to participate or re
iiain from participation iu foreign
wars—aud declined to paotlcipatc.
Sir Wilfrid Lnurtor stood out lor
Canada's right to participate or refrain from participation in the Emp-
re's foreign wars and participated
most efTectively.   It was the oft rep-
ted story. The Tories shouted
loyalty, waved the Union Jack and
did nothing. Thc Liberals under
Laurier wasted no time in Hysterical
Hag waving hut acted promptly and
patriotically. Canadians like to forget the Conservative episode as much
iis they love the glory Canada won
under Laurier.
Tlie point as to Canada's position
when the Kmpirc is at war and the
Liberal doctrine ou that point was
ably dealt with hy Mr. iN. W. Howell
the Ontario Liberal Leader, in
speech biiore the Montreal reform
club, .Mr. Howell said, "It is well
for us to get clearly in mind the distinction between neutrality and non-
participation. As Sir .John Macdonald would undoubtedly have said,
aud as Sir Wilfrid Laurier has rep-
eatedly said, whenever the Empire is
at war, Canada, as part of the Empire, is at war also. In the last 100
years Ureal Britain has been engaged
in, I suppose over a score of wars,
and yet in none of these which have
occured outside of this continent,
have Canadian troops participated,
except in thc war in South Africa.
No statesman of Canada has ever
proclaimed the doctrine of colonial
neutrality, hut what Canadian statesman have said, ami truly said, ,t
that the Government of Canada must
decide the churactcr and extent ol
the participation which Canada takes
iu tbe war. It is Parliament which
must vote the supplies. On this important matter, if I read history
aright, Sir Wilfrid Laurier aud Sit
John Macdonald have taken exactly
the same position, except that the
Government of Sir John exercised
llie right lo decide hy refusing to
participate, the Government of Sii
Wilfrid be participating.
The more tbe speeches of Rt. Hon
Winston Churchill and other British
ministers iu the Imperial Parliament
are studied the more futile appears
t lie emergency idea propounded and
Invented by .Mr. Borden and his $35,-
iMjii.onii solution for it. Every ut
lerance of responsible British minis'
ters shows tiro absence of any emergency, and their confidence in their
own naval programme to keep pace
with tbe hostility of any power
ihe world for years to come. And
the utterances of irresponsible lire
brands can hardly be accepted as re
liable in face of the careful studied
and prepared statements of ministers
For instance, on March 20th last
some time before Mr. Borden and his
colleagues went over to invent tho
emergency—Mr. Page-Croft, a British
Al. P., who is well known in Canada
as one of the ardent Imperial cult,
bail expressed the view that each
Dominion should have its own tleet—
that Canada and Australia should
have four Dreadnought cruisers
apiece and the rest of the Empire in
Rt. Hon. Winston Churchill, l-'irst
Lord of the Admiralty, thought this
rather an optimistic view, and added
"These great vessels, of enormous
strength and cost, would certainly
he very welcome, but 1 do not expect
the great results Mr. Page-Croft has
forecasted as being likely to occur in
the future will make any immediate
difference to the problems which we
have to consider this afternoon.
And a few minutes later Mr. Churchill gave an effectual quietus to the
emergency idea, in the following
"The hon. member for Chester has
asked me why we were taking so little lor battleships this year (1013).
We calculate when we lay down each
battleship according to the actual
dates at which we think we shall require them. If we thought we should
require one of these ships at an earlier month than that which we have)
fixed In our minds as necessary,
there would be no difficulty in laying
down tbe vessel u little earlier. THEl

Waterworks Question
lotted, will faithfully do all that In
aa Ilea to realize theui.
Yours respectfully,
For Mayor
For Aldermen
RATEPAYER — Your worship,  when  can  we  expect a revenue from the
Waterworks Department.
HIS WORSHIP —- Thus far, the payroll of my engineers and their staff on
the Works has absorbed most of the profits.
Municipal ownership of public utili
ties is now almost universally tie-
eeptwi as an axiom iu municipal poll-
lies. Su acceptable u doctrine is it
lo tbe municipal electorate thai it is
frequently found tu be a plunk in op
putting platforms, which may be tal.
en us a tribute to tin* awakening
knowledge of tlie modern voter. Here
and there, however, there arc still to
be found people who oppose the priu
ciple from various causes. Perhaps
thc_ commonest of the reasons advanced for opposition tu the municipal,
ly operating its own utilities is that
il dors not pay. This is naturally a
strong argument lo thc ratepayer,
and where il can he proved, often de
cides the issue. As appears from oui
manifesto, we do not occupy any un
certain position on this question
We believe thoroughly in the principle, but we realize at the same time,
that tbe municipally owned water
works of Cranbrook provides more
material for opposing that principle
than it does for defending It. What
we have to do, however, is not to
spend argument In defending the prin
ciple in the abstract, but try to discover why it has fallen down intho
one concrete instance where it has
been applied to the local affairs.
It does not require the acumen ol
a King's counsel to discover at least,
some of the reasons for this failure,
and the object of this article is to
br.ng some of those reasons to public
notice, so that the electorate may
understand what a so called business
administration has done for Cranbrook so far as this particular question is concerned, (hi August 3rd,
1909, the city purchased from thc then
water Company the present system
of    water-distribution   at a   price of
Tbe electorate were persuaded to
purchase this property on the understanding, thut, operated by the municipality, it would yield a revenue to
the community which would be appar
ent by lower taxation. To the lav
mind, this is u most attractive proposal, and the community being mostly composed of lay minds, the electorate have looked in vain for the UK-
OK Till-; MUNICIPAL WATERWORKS. They have secu instead a
higher local tax and the undertaking
that was purchased us a revenue pro
ducer has uctuully been a charge to
the community. On the face of it,
this loota like a knock down blow tu
the municipal ownership argument
doesn't it; hut stay a moment.
The waterworks paid a dividend to
the Company who promoted and operated it prior to its purchase by the
community. That it does not puy
now must be due to some other tea-
Jon or reasons than the mere fact
that it is now a municipal undcrtnk-
Let us examine the situation and
see il we can discover those reasons.
Perhaps the business management has
been at fault. Perhaps the purchase
itself was u mistnke. The Company
sold for $')5,000.00 as a going concern. The community bought the
property as a going concern. Immediately it became their property, it
was discovered that it was necessary
to lay a new main pipe throughout,
and a little sum of fifteen thousand
dollars was raised for the purpose.
Incidentally, it was actually found
that the selling Company knew that
a new main pipe was necessary and
had actually  ordered pipe for the pur
pose. Astute wasn't it? (iood management (or the Company, but poor ma-
uagemcut on tbe part of the people's
representutivos;who bought a property in bud shape, paid a good price,
utid then spent fifteen thodsnnd dol
lurs tu put it into repair.
Now, this might have passed if the
property had actually been put into
order, but it is the experience of
Cranbrook citizens that it was not
only, never put into shape,
but it is not       in
shupe at the present time, and all the
indications are that before it ever
will be of any use, they will have to
spend something like thc original
purchase price to repair it. The
winter is now with us and many are
the complaints that the pipes are frozen from every quarter of the city.
What will these complaints cost before spring arrives? If last winter is
anything to go by, it will run into
the thousands again. Meanwhile, the
present council are appealing for continuation of office, and their appeal
is on their past record of which they
seem to think they have reason to be
proud. We are quite aware that
Mayor Bowness did not purchase the
waterworks, but some of his colleagues were on the council nt the time,
and neither they or the Mayor have
given any evidence to the electorate
that they are capable and business
like administration of civic business
Municipal ownership of public utilities is not at fault, but if the electorate want to vindicate that principle,
they should refuse to place further
confidence in a council who have displayed so lamentable a lack of business knowledge as is evedent in their
handling of thc waterworks question
Chief Foster, of the city lire brigade, has provided us with the following detailed statement of the fires
during the past twelve months. It
will be noted that none of them was
of a very serious nature, and that
the losses, on ihe whole, were quite
Insignificant. This speaks volumes
for the prompt, energetic action ol
the brigade in all cases of lire alarms
and thc fact that the city is so peculiarly free from disastrous conlla-
grations cannot but have good effect
upon the fire underwriters, whose adjustment of rates of insurance must
be qualified, to some extent ut least,
by tbe comparative freedom of fires
of uny consequence.

bond before he can enter into business.
We have no desire to fill Cranbrook with cheap or incompetent
labor in any craft, but we fall to
see in what way the bond guarantees
competency. What we do sea however ie tbat the arrangement eliminates competition, and. places householders absolutely at the mercy of
the plumbers who can charge
extortionate prices for their work.
Lot us profit by the experience of
other municipalities everywhere who
have found what a costly business
is class legislation.
Fifth—Following as a necessary cor
rollary of item four of our program.
We advocate municipal ownership of
public utilities together witb an enquiry into tbe reasons why tbe already municipally owned waterworks
la not paying. It paid as a private
ronrern,   Why not as a municipal nn.
dertaklng? All over the world today
the once sneered at doctrine of muni-
cipal ownership is now being adopted
and under clean and efficient administration Is proving the only sane
and sensible way of carrying out tbe
people's trust, as against private
greed and corruption.
Finally—We sincerely desire the sup
pression ot vice In all its forme, the
enforcement of the law without fear
or favor granting equal rights to all
and special privilege to none.
We desire to Bee this city go ahead
and we are convinced that it can only gain true prosperity along clean
straight lines.
To proceed along these lines, we
need the best type of citizen, and
the best type of citizen will always
settle in a place of good moral repute for the sake of his family.
Cranbrook has passed out of the
"tough wild west days" and aspires
to a high place in the life of the province and the Dominion.
As citizens asking your confidence
we share those aspirations, and If s-
