Early- this year tlte public began
some agitation ulong tbe lino of
asking tlw city council to provide a
grounds for the busebull aud lacrosse ami other purk privileges und
a monster petition wus presented to
the council, They set aside $25011
which wus to be used for this purpose. The finance committee have

this week were presented with a proposition from Mr. V. Hyde linker
which was accepted and the papers
.have been forwarded to the C.P.R.
for approval, if their sanction is,
secured thc city, will possess an ideal
site for the location of a public park
Mayor Howness drove the editor to
Uu* grounds today aad the situation
of thc proposed park appeals as being one of thc most desirable to be
found anywhere in the city. It contains fifteen acres and lies adjoining
V. Hyde Baker's estate to the
north- The tract lies between Edwards and Baker streets and the
baseball grounds would only be moved one block east of their present
St, Joseph's creek traverses one
side of the property and there is also
additional water which it is proposed to run along the hillside and make
a small late which would be used lor
boating and swimming. There is
plenty of low land which could be
converted into a lake at small expense. The hillside is deeply wooded
with tall and stately tamaracks,
which would provide shade and picnic
Automobile driveways* running out
on either Baker or Edwards street
would run through the, grounds, Thc
hillside would give waterfalls
power tor spraying fountains which
would come in time. The site- for
the baseball grounds fo already
cleared and levelled and would take
very little Work to make a fine park.
With the grounds all planted to
grass and flower beds, with the bond
stand and seats, and other comforts
necessary for an up-to-date- park,
this site with all its present natural
beauty, would make a Play ground
■within a few minutes walk of any
part of the city and a place Inviting and reposeful, and not equalled by
any other city in the interior of
British Columbia.

Everybody is acquainted with the
old story of Kobfnson Crusoe aud
his good man, Friday, hut it remained for Joe Uvuuni, the Italian
middleweight champion, to give au
up-to-date version of the old story,
Cvanni, unlike Crusoe, is not ma
rooiu'd on an island but is continually looking,for new worlds to conquer, but his likeness to Crusoe is
contained in his good man, .lohn.
John is a cook and he sticks closer
to Cvanni than over the proverbial
Friday could have done aud everywhere thc prize fighter goes, John
goes, and thereby hangs a tale.
Following tlte light on Tuesday
evening about twenty of tlu* local
sports were invited to a "Spaghetti
Banquet," which was served on the
second floor of the Proven'/ano
store. Frank Provenzano, the
proprietor, possesses an up-to-date
club, room over his store and here
the guests retired. The mere mention of a "spaghetti banquet" would
suggest something unique and thej
spread served more than filled the
suggestion. John served tbe dinner
and all the appointments of the service were looked after by him alone,
John's especial ability, however, lies
in the fact that he is an Italian cook
and knows how to cook Italian dinners.    His specialty is spaghetti. ,
The banquet was served in
rounds, going ten full large rounds.
Some of the guests were out in the
fifth, others in thc sixth and seventh
and still others stayed through' to
the finish. There was a general unloosening of waist bands after the
fourth, when the spaghetti was
served.   ,
The spaghetti was so delicious
that several of the guests had many
helpings but they were wishing before the feast was ended tbat they
had been more conservative. John
kept smiling, removing plates,
restoring fresh supplies. Not, one in
the crowd bad ever before attended
such a banquet and universal praise
was extended the chef on his ability
to concoct cuisine so tasty and delicious.
The feed lasted for several hours
and all voted Joe Cvanni a prince of
good fellows before thev departed

About forty of the business men of
the city aud district met at the
Cranbrook hotel on Monday evening;
iu a smoker which was a farewell to
Mr. It. T. Hrymner, manager of the
Canadian Banki of Commerce, who
has been transferred to Lethbridge
and left this week for bis new location.
An affair of this sort could not lie
more appropriately held than in the
case or the departure of a citizen
with the. years of, service in tlie forefront of business, such as has been
sustained by Mr. Hrymner. He
came to this city some ten* years ago
when Cranbrook was only a wild
frontier town, the hanking business
being conducted in small shacks with
plain pine boards for counters. The
town .generally then was a town of
shacks or small frame buildings and
in the Intervening time he has seen
the banks housed iu Imposing homes
of their own with brick and concrete
fireproof walls. Tbo wooden shacks
have been replaced with handsome
substantial brick buildings, wooden
sidewalks have given way to concrete. Hundreds of lieautiful homes
have been built and surrounded with
gardens and beautiful lawns. Cranbrook has emerged from a frontier
hamlet of crude ways into an embryo
young city, pleasing to thc eye and
Inhabited with as line a class of
people as can he found anywhere in
tho world. In tbis period of transition Mr. Brymner and his wife havi
been especially prominent, Mr. Brymner not only as the chief of his financial institution, but as president of
the board of trade and in many 61 her
capacities has been alive and keenly
interested in everything pertaining to
the city's welfare. Together they
have assisted in musical and social
circles and their absence will he par
ticularly felt In this respect.
Mr. V. K. Wilson acted in the cap'
acity of master of ceremonies and
about ten o'clock, when all had assembled, proposed a toast *"The
King" and then ''Our Bankers"
whieh was responded to by Mr. H.
W. Supple, manager nt the Imperial
bank, and Mr. T. H. O'Conncll, manager of the Royal hank. Both spoke
of iheir pleasant relations with Mr.
Hrymner in the past and their regret at his departure. The crowd
joined in singing "He's a Jolly
Cood Fellow."
-los-ph Ryan and A. Raworth were
the next speakers in response to the
toast "Our Ouest." .Mr. Ryan congratulated Mr. Hrymner on bis step
of advancement in the ladder of life
and hoped be would not be transferred so far away but that he might
visit Cranbrook often in the future.
Mr. Raworth spoke feelingly of his
friendship for Mr. and Mrs. Hrymner
and was glad lhal they were nol
going farther than Lethbridge, where
he might Im* able to visit them frequently, lie reviewed their work in
the Operatic society and- thc lawn
tennis club, in both of which they
had done considerable work for the
benefit of both societies.
Mr. C. W. Loubach then favored
Ok' company with a couple of songs.
Dr. .1. II. KinK w'.\a sorry io learn
of their departure and expressed his
sincere regret that they were leaving
Cranbrook. He believed that he
spoke fctr the majority of the people
of Cranhrook in expressing this sentiment.
H. K. Beattic claimed be had been
a working man for the past year and
out of practice as a speech maker.
He felt that the sense of thc meeting
was wrong and that instead of congratulating Mr. Brymner on bis promotion we should be extending him
our heartfelt sympathy. He felt
that Mr. Brymner was going to find
his first six months on the prairie
very trying especially after doing a
banking business for several years in
Cranbrook among honest people. " He
was following a good man ami would
no doubt wish for some Cranbrook
friend to pat him on the back and
toil him he is a good banker, as he
would be new to Lethbridge. He
spoke of tlie wind, the dust und   the
that the next time he asked one,
"How's husiness?" they would not
hollow "Rotten," out loud. He then
asked tor tbe prayers of all wood
Cranbrook people to sustain Mr. Bry
rimer through the first six months o.
the prairie.
Alan Graham sang a couple of
comic songs which were greeted with
vociferous applause.
Mr. i'. Lund, managing director of
the Crows Nosl Cass Lumber- company, of Wardner, spoke of bis long
association in business with Mr,
Brymner as a hanker and felt that
his promotion was well deserved. He
though! Lethbridge a very Une little
city in tlie center of a district with
a great future. He spoke of the,
Cranbrook) district and predicted that]
great things would be accomplished
here within the next few years, Ho
thought that Mr. Brymner could still
be of service to this district even
though stationed at Lethbridge if he
could arrange to have (he drafts
drawn on people through that district paid. He expected to see Mr.
Brymner often ini Lethbridge,
Mr. Stillman, or Calgary, was
called upon by the chairman and rendered a couple of vocal solos.
Mr. Walter Ilalsall on behalf of
the committee, in a few well chosen
words, presented to Mr. Hryniner as
a slight token of the esteem of his
fellow business men in the city u
sterling silver tea set, (Jucen Anne
style, and sterling silver punch bowl.
He expressed the be.s't wishes of the
committee for Mr. and Mrs. Brymner
in their new home and conveyed the
kind regards of a number of people
who were unable to be present. lie
stated that the present bad been
chosen with the view of ilr.being of
as much service to Mrs. Hrynin r as
lo himself.
Mr. Brymner was somewhat overcome by the unexpectedness of the
presentation and stated that it was
in thc nature of a cloudburst. He
stated that whatever success be bad
made as a banker or in any capacity
in Cranbrook was due lo his better
half ami that they both sincerely regretted their departure from the
city, lie had always liked Cranhrook ami once in Montreal when
asked by the Inspector how, he would
like to go to*Cranbrook replied, "Vou
can send me to-morrow if *foil mean
it." lie came a month later. He
expressed bis regret with leaving so
many good kind friends behind and
again sincerely thanked the donors
for their generous gift.
Mr. Harold Darling was next called
upon for a   recitation ami gave
reading in the French dialect.
Mr. Cyril Newton rendered a song
and was encored.
Tbe assembly joined in singing
"God Save the King" ami "Auld
Lang Syne."

El Paso, Texas, .Inly 28,—Charles
H. Dixon, jr., i'nited States immigration inspector, who was shot in
Juarez Saturday by Mexican soldiers, was brought from the Juarez
hospital to Kl Paso, after American
Consul Edwards had made a demand
for his release and for the arrest of
the men who shot him.
The demand of Consul Edwards
was in vigorous language, first telling the Mexican authorities tbat Dixon must be delivered up to bis friends
and permitted to be brought to Kl
Paso without delay, the consul said,
relative to reparation:
"1 do not merely rcouest tlw* arrest of these men, but in the name of
the United states government, I demand their immediate arrest and
punishment for this crime. My gov-,
eminent will hold the military au-1
thorittCS of Juarez personally responsible lor failure to obey this command."
Mexican Consul Miranda, in this
city, places the blame for the
shooting of Dixon on a Mexican
negro, a lieutenant named Saynes, of
the command of Clencral Inez Sala-
zar, and two American negroes. Miranda says the negroes whom Dixon
was Interrogating in regard to a
white slave case, conspired to make
away with the inspector, taking thc
half breed into the plot to do the
shooting. Consul Miranda says
there were nn federal soldiers Implicated.

chief work had heen to sacrifice thc
best lands of tbe .no/inn* io lhe
speculator to the detrti»>*tt of Ihe
farmers and bona fide sHthT.1 and
British Columbia gensrtlty.
Mr. Macdonald, in paying a neal
compliment to the large number ol
ladies present, established himself olt
solid ground when he said that the
Liberals, would grant the franchise to
women. All classes affected, he
claimed, should be allowed to participate in making tlie laws. There
was' no doubt that the present government was on the down grade
and the bottom would soon be reached. If was losing public confidence.
For the past six or sever, years,
Mr. Macdonald staled, that ihe
people of this province had been living iu a speculative atmosphere, The
government had been squandering the
public funds. The McBride govern-:
ment hud hud a long Ufe.it was m>w|
suffering from decrepit old age. It
had been a merry life. The large
bounty at its disposal had been exploited to personal benefit and general detriment. No less a sum than
$20,0(10,000 went out of this province
every year to buy foodstuffs which |
should be produced here. The whole
trouble was that the land speculator
had got in before the farmer. Rich
lands had been bartered for a song
und thc legitimate laud seeker and
settler had been given no chance, to
bid for the soil.
.Mr. Macdonald described Sir Richard as Premier Esau, and said thai
he certainly had received a mess of
pottage. The auctioneers, posing as
statesmen, ut Victoria, had brought
British Columbia to this pass,
Premier McBride and Mr. Bowser
were the two prodigals. In the
passing of time tbey had grown
holder. The new species of speculator, calling himself the Iriend of the
Indians, had arisen. The speaker re-'"]
fersed to the sale of the Songhce reserve, over which two men divided
$107,000. One of them was J. S.
11, Matson, proprietor of three Conservative daily papers in this province. Matson got his hands into the
treasury and extracted $75,000. He
had put $30,000 deep down in his
pockets, but had refused to say what
had been done with the remaining
$45,000. It      was     the    people's
money, and    tbey  had a right       to
know where it had gone.
Premier McBride, (Iceland the
speaker, bad stated that he was
proud of the transaction. He asked
his hearers il they ever heard ol a
transaction where the government
was proud of keeping it secret for
two years. It was the kind of
pride which went before the fall and
Mr. Macdonald said that the fall wns
near at hand, lie felt sure that all
would wish Messrs. McBride, Bowser
ami Company a safe tourney to the
coo! shades of the opposition.
That bis words weir* prophetic anl
that the feeling on the coast is unanimous regarding the coming change
in provincial rule, the following
words by Attorney-General Bowser
on the same day at a Conservative
picnic prove:
"Those who have been to Paris
have seen- there the magnificent tomb
of Napoleon—I am not, as opposition
newspapers will say, making any
comparison between Napoleon ami
myself—and will remember that ihere
is there inscribed a saying by the
greatest soldier the world has ever
seen that when he was dead his remains might lay close to tlie banks
of the Seine and near the hearts of
the French people. Now there may
he political deaths in the Conservative party in Vancouver in years to
come—though there is no present
prospect of our political death, but
rather that of the other fellows—but
when my political death comes I
Im* burled
(From thr Vancouver News-Advertiser).
Every word that has been written
to emphasize the importance of
Hawaii for the, protection of the Pacific coast of the United States must
he repeated with double emphasis in
regard to the, Aleutian Islands and
thc south coast of Alaska. Tlie
Yokohama-Seattle line is 1,087 miles
shorter by way of, Alaska than byway of Honolulu, Shift the east end
to San Francisco, and the Alaska
route is .still 1,015 miles shorter
than the Honolulu route. In other
words, a fleet trying to establish a
base of operations for attacking tbe
United States would never dream of
going 1,000 or 1,700 miles out of its
way to Hawaii, when an ideal base,
totally undefended, may be found
near the Bering river coal field, only
I,ISO miles from Seattle.
This Is a matter which Canada
cannot regard with indifference. Tlie
United States is by far th** pleasant-
cst, safest neighbor wt* could possibly
wish. At tbe mere thought of another power in possession of Alaska,
every Canadian feels his flesh creep,
his hair stand on end. We simply
could nol tolerate it, and should be
compelled by tho most obvious requirements of (y.ir own safety to
join our forces lo those of the I'nited
States iu un attempt to drive out
the invaders.
...The moment we put this conclusion
iu plain words, we perceive with dismay that our help would avail very
little against an enemy able to
throw his force at will on any poini
of the coast, which in tbe absence ol
railways we could only reach with
troops inferior in numbers and equip
The situation would be wholly different if a railway extended from tbe
Grand Trunk to Dawson and thence
to tlie Alaska boundary, with
branch to every port, thus establishing continuous railway connection
between the I'nited States and Alaska. This would lead to the speedy
construction of a network of railways in Alaska, extending to every
part of the coast that is worth protecting. The very sight of those
railways on the map would suffice to
scare away the would-be invader, for
he would know that Canada, in order
to safeguard her own vital interests,
would instantly place ber lines at the
disposal of the United States for the
transportation bf troops and supplies.
An imperative motive for tbe immediate construction of the Ha/el
ton-Dawson line would be created if
it were made a condition of the
transfer of southeastern Alaska tc
Canada, as has been suggested in
connection with the Stephens' resolution, introduced in the United States
congress on February 7th. We
should In lhat case feel it our duty
lo build that line with ail! possible
speed, and to postpone all other railway work until we bad seen the first
train running from the I'nited States
to the Arctic circle, even though
we knew that the line would not pay
a cent in dividends for twenty years
to come.
Some Canadians, in their patriotic-
pride, feci uncomfortable to think
that, in virtue of the Monroe Doctrine, Canada is under the protection
of the I'nited Stales. They may
gain a now sense of equilibrium from
tlie knowledge that tbe United
States is also under the protection of
Canada, in virtue ot a Canadian supplement to the Monroe Doctrine, a
supplement which we may, without
undue presumption, call, "The Vancouver Doctrine," after th*' eity
where, so far as we know, it was
Inst promulgated.

luiite trouble on both side« of the
Wore than a year ago, thc I. W. W.
took it upon themselves to make an
uproar in Vancouver, with the result
that several went to jail for some
time. Tlio nest real disturbance
was at San Diego, where tbe authorities ovolved a scheme almost diaboli
cally clever, for they fought the
I. W. IV. with water. No mangy cur
afflicted wilh hydrophobia ever feared
water more than does the average
Industrial "Loafer," and San Diego
was rid of Uie pest for tile time being.
lu Seattle, however, ihe citizens
felt the full force of the venom in
tlie fangs of thc I. W. W. Starting
with a fight between two soldiers
and a score or more rabid Socialists, Seattle became later the scene,
of a spectacular battle hetwecn several hundred soldiers, sailors and
the I. W. W. Heads and windows
were broken with ouuul impartiality,
and belorc thc battle was over,
Seattle was in a condition of comparative ohaos. The mayor ol the
city, a person with pronounced "rod
flag" tendencies, attempted to suppress the Seattle "Times," a newspaper whieh published a somewhat,
hot speech of the secretary oi tire
navy. This speech was said to be

so utterly unfounded that no reasonable person could regard it seriously

A Canadian correspondent writes in
London Truth: How utterly foolish
and unmanly Canadian politicians
must consider tin- scruples ot the
English nation when such innocent
transactions as those in American
Marconi stock hy cabinet' ministers
are made tlw subject ol prolonged
inquiry, and when Sir Stuart Samuel is- unseated for Wbitechapcl for
so slight a connection with government contracts! At Ottawa they
manage these things hotter, and
motion ol censure can be voted down
by a handsome majority, und uo more
heard of the matter, if a member of
tho opposition dares lo attack
minister in the performance of his
duty. The I'rincc Albert home
stead scandal has now passed into
Canadian history, and tin- public
busy forgetting all about it. And yet
the Hon. ltobert Rogers, minister ol
the interior in Mr. Borden's cabinet,
made no effort to deny that on April
16, 1012, Mr. Arthur Donaldson had
been granted, contrary fo the rules
ot the department, hull of a quarter-
section within the limits ol tbis
growing Alberta oltjt, that Mr. Donaldson bad paid tlu- customary ten
dollar fee Jot his homestead rights;
and thnt he had come into possession
of property which within a yanr was
knowledged to be worth one hundred thousand dollars, and which in
April, 1913, was put on the market
as building lots at an aggregate
price of $342,000.
.Mr. Rogers could not deny the
facts of the case. The evidence was
too abundant and too strong. He
therefore contented himself with
bringing into the house ot commons a
mass of correspondence to prove that
Mr. Oliver, his predecessor in the interior department in thc I.aurier cab-
t, had done things just as bad,
and had shown similar favoritism to
political partisans. Iu the earlier
instance it was timber lands,      con
taining 160,000,000 It. of timber,
which had been given away by the
government to some of its supporters, and tbe deal had been accomplished by an order In council which
had been signed by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. The letters were there, and the
earlier deal had certainly been effected; but how this exonerated Mr.
Rogers in thc Donaldson case no one
attempted to explain. Nevertheless,
Mr. Rogers' character was cleared by
a vote of 95 to 56; and nothing more
will be heard cither ol thc timber
den) or the Prince Albert transaction until some other minister gets
into trouble and wishes to liral honorable precedents for his actions.

The rapidity with which the lan-li inrround.ng Cranbrook are
being taken up by people (rom a d.Btance ihowB how thoroughly the
advantages of these lands are appreciated by outsiders; but residents
of the town should take advantage of the opportunity which exists of
securing small tracts running from a little over an acre to five acres
at a price per acre helow what would have to he paid for an ordinary
city lot. For instance, $.300 will buy an acre and a half on terms to

While depreciating Sunday baseball,
I wish to offer an emphatic denial to
several misleading statements in your
report of the game played between
the above mentioned teams in your
issue of last week. The report
stated "That there Is a general
complaint on tlie unsportsmanlike
conduct of the Wardner team, tluit
Mr. Burgess umpired the game favorable lo Wardner, his decisions were
iu some respects the most remarkable ever known, one rooter lor
Cranbrook was arrested." Now. the
general concensus of opinion by those
who were not strong partisans of
cither team, differ very materially
from thc report. Wardner boys
conducted' themselves under most frying circumstances in a manner worthy
of their high reputation. It would
lie difficult to find a more respectable body ol athletes, they were clean
tongued, honorablo to their opponents, and pcrtecTTy sober. Thc game
must have been reported by a
Cranbrook fan, who in all probability
suffered from a lit of dyspepsia following defeat and disappointment,
all thc more aggravating by his own
assertion "that he could beat Wardner team with half the usual number
of players," the defeat was there-
more most humiliating. Hut Cranbrook can afford to be brave and give
honor to whom honor is due. Mr.
Ilurgcss is well known to thc people
of both towns represented, his honor
is unasailahle, he would not stoop to
give a wrong decision -wittingly. The
Cranbrook rooter -was twice warned
for using language foreign to the
Wardner people, and it was only after undue interference, his stepping
forward to prevent play, that the
constable interfered. Let Cranhrook
take their defeat like men. Wardner
boys refuse the unsportsmanlike pn^
position made by thc Cranhrook
team. The policeman of Wardner
is a man of strides! integrity ami
knows when and how to act.

If our Pacific coast is practically
without, naval protection, as affirmed
by Rear Admiral Van Reypetn, a war
with Japan would involve tbe loss ot
Alaska. With unlimited resources in
coal and timber, the,south coast of
Alaska would present nn ideal base
for an attack on our Pacific coast,
being much nearer to Asia and to
Puget Sound than any base that an
enemy mjght capture on tho Hawaiian Islands. This fact lends interest to a communication in the
Vancouver News-Advertiser, to the
effect that,, as a geographic necessity,
Canada is the protector of thc United,
States. Says our Canadian contemporary:
"At tho mere thought of another
power in possession of Alaska, every
Canadian feels his flesh creep, his
hafr stand ou end. We simply could
not tolerate it, and should be compelled by the most obvious requirements of our own safety to join our
forces to those of the United States
in an attempt to drive out thc invud-
Unfortunately, so long as the
British navy is tied up in thc
North. Sea, and no railway communication exists between the United
States and Alaska, even the combined land forces of the United
States and Canada could not prevent
tho temporary occupation of Alaska
by a superior naval power. From
this point of view, the recent announcement of the early construction
of a railway through northern British Columbia to Dawson and thence
to the Alaska boundary becomes interesting. Premier Richard McBride, of British Columbia, will visit
Ottawa and Washington to discuss
that proposed extension of the
Grand Trunk railway. It may be
taken for,granted that in his conferences with our statesmen the
strategic value ot the proposed rail
way will not be overlooked. Branch
lines, would, of course, be built io
connect the main line with the harbors of Alaska, to their immense
commcrciael benefit. When thc facilities exist for concentrating thc
combined American and Canadian
forces on any threatened point within a few days, no naval force, however superior, will care to attack
any part ot the Pacific coast, either
ot the United Slates or of Canada.
Senator Power, of the Canadian par
