Const Mining Man Gives Some
Prominence lo East Knot-
eiuiy's Possibilities
In a reoent review ot general mln
lug conditions given out at tho Coast,
A- tl. Huggen, editor of the Mining
and Engineering Record, of Vancouver, mado tho following allusions to
(ho Kast Kootenay section:
An eastern syndicate has boon or-
gaUod to carry on extensive exploration in Hust Kootenay this year.
From lho ltlg Menu ot tho Columbia
in the north to lho tnloruulton boundary, many different minerals arc
found. Hot springs und mineral waters occur In the Hig Bend, at Sinclair Puss, and Fairmont. It Is slated Ihat some ot theso springs aro of
oxcepilounl medical value. The results of Investigations published in
the Lancet sonic years ago demonstrated that tho waters of the Sinclair
Hot Springs are the Btrongost radio-
active waters known, and it was on
the strength ot this report that the
property was acquired by the Harms-
worths of London, with a view to establishing a sanitarium whlcb could
be advertised world-wide and bring
patients Ifrom all corners of the
earth. The war put an end to the
scheme, but lt is probable it will yet
bo carried out.
Placer gold occurs In many localities, from the extreme north
to Gold Creek ln the south. The latter has Its confluence with the Kootenay river at Gateway. Wild Horse
Creek was one of the richest gold producers In the province and may -yet
prove an attractive field for a dredge.
Where placer gold Is, there ls a
prospect of obtaining payable lode
gold, and such does occur on tlie
Spilllmachene and Bugaboo rivers,
and Toby and Perry creeks.
Platinum is found on the Bluewater
river, north of Donald.
Mica occurs In pegmattle dykes In
the Big Bend, and these dykes may
also prove a future source of potash,
Mercury is found at Golden and
Very rich float copper ores carrying
high gold values have been found on
the mountain south of Beaver-mouth,
though the source of the mineral bus
not been found. Copper also occurs
on thc Slmllkameen. Columbia. Kootenay, Bugaboo, Salmon and St. Mary's
rivers; near the town of Windermere,
where the Swansea Mine was one of
the earliest shippers of copper ore,
and ou u number ot creeks tributary
to tho Columbia. On Toby creek there
Is a particularly promising prospect;
while thore Is another at the head of
Dutch creek.
SUverlead-zlnc ores occur on thc
Spullumcheon, Columbia nnd Kootenay
rivers, from Tinbasket Lake to Moyie,
also at Field. In fact it is possible
that East Kootenay may yet rival Ihe
Coour d'Alenos of Idaho ns u silvcr-
lond-zine camp. It contains lhe northern extension of the same geological
field, and has already gtven the province three of tho largest mines In the
SI. Eugene, which produced ore to
iho valuo of about $11,000,000; the
North Star ami the Sullivan, which la
the largest known deposit Of silver-
lead zinc oro in the world. Several
promising prospu-ts are known and

of lhe first mines in the Kootenay

men In thi city have been augmented
by lho recent arrival hero of Mr. B.
A. MoorhoUBO, who as a provincial
land surveyor and civil engineer, haft
already established a reputation for
himself in Other parts or the province.
Mr. Moorhouse was al Pontlclou for
Ion years or so, and during that time
had a good deal to do wiih tlto development of Ihat district. He surveyed
lhe right-of-way for the Kettle Valley
Railway through the municipality,
ami was ulso connected with the corporation "f tho district of Pentlcton

In duo limo Mr. Moorhouso will op-(
en an offico in the clly, und ho is also setting up connections in other
places In tho surrounding district.
Mr. Moorhouso has purchased tho J.
A. McCuuky house on Lumsden Avenue, expecting to get possession within
a few days.
Mr. Moorhouse ls at present engaged
on somo surveying at Cherry Creek.

Further Progress Mude ul Committee Meeting Last Friday—
Events Being Drawn Up
Further steps were taken last
Friday evening at a meeting of
the Great War Veterans* celebration committee, and the big event
on Victoria Day, given favorable weather and other benign outside influences, should set a new standard for
holiday celebrations in tlie city. The
different committees are hard at work
perfecting the arrangements under
their charge, and a motion wus passed
by which the athletic and horse racing
committees were instructed to prepare
a list of the events they contemplate
putting on, ready to report at the next
meeting, which will likely be held at
tho end of this week.
The matter of the horse races was
gone Into further, the secretary being
instructed to write to Spokane In an
endeavor lo get some racing men thero
interested in the Crunbrook events.
Dr. Hutledge, a member of this committee, will tako up the matter with
otlier horse men in Calgary shortly,
and the determination of the committee is that something really good In
the way of horse racing shall be on
the program. The proposed list of
events ts heing drawn up this week,
and tho purses will aggregate a thousand dollars. *
For senior athletic events the sum
tif one hundred dollars lias been appropriated, and tour events will probably be put on. Sonic runners from
Pernio have evinced un interest tn
this part of the program, and there
may be other outside entries. These
events are in addition to tlit Junior
athletic events, for the school children, for which another hundred dollars has been 'appropriated.
No definite stops were taken towards engaging a band for the day.
but it is probable that the Fernle
band, ahout twenty strong, will be in
attendance. They promise good music, and the expense in connection wtth
this Item will not he such a heavy financial strain as the music in Attend-
nee at hist yearV^colebratlon.
Tliere will be three dances on thc

during the day lure ou tho 24th will
help to draw tho crowd from that section.
In connection witli the special tram
arrangements, tt has definitely been
decided that thero will be no special
train from the west, this proving unsuccessful last year. There will be a
train trom the east, however, and a
committee of two was appointed to
take, tho matter up wtth the local Canadian Pacific superintendent. It may
ho decided nt the next meeting of the
committee whether tho train will start
from Blalrmore or Fernle.

Tlie Little Devunport Cafe on Baker Street, one of the best known establishments of its kind in the city,
changed hands this week, Walter
Wallers, tho proprietor, having diw-
posod of the business to W. O. Marshall, accountant with the Crunbrook
Meat Market.
"Walter," us everyone familiarly
knows him, has been In business at
illlTertnt Koolenay points for many
years, and here In the city for ten or
eleven yenrs, though not all that time
at his present stand. Hy hard work
and a persistent polity i r keeping his
service up he has built up n good business, and Die L, D. has gul-.ed a good
reputation for putting up real solid
"squares" for the hungry man.
Walter Is undecided yet as to his
futui'o plans, but believes he is entitled to a holiday, having worked all
hours every day, seven days a week,
for several years. He may go to
Nelson shortly, but it is not likely he
will go far away from the Kootenay

The following article, taken from
recent issue of the Pacific Coast
Lumberman, gives an insight into the
extensive developments being undertaken at Wattsburg by the B.C, Spruce
Mills, Limited. It indicates that operations tliere are not being planned
on any half-scale, hut that within
another year or two a mill with a
cut of 200,000 feet a day will be ready-
to operate.
Embodying many special features,
tlie big sawmill plant being erected at
Wattsburg, on the ('row's Nest Pus.1
line, hy the B.C. Spruce Mills, Ltd..

East Koolenay Lumber Company, Ltd.,
in the Moyie district. Its authorized
capital being $1,000,000. Tho plans
whicli the company made, tho way in
which it la executing them, and its
general progress towards fulfilments
ot Its alms, should be Interesting to
tlie readers of this journal.
In the first place lt should be noted
that the B.C. Spruce Mills, Ltd., ts
probably as well financed, and backed
by practical lumber experience, as
most of the large lumber businesses
In tbe United States autl Canada. In
tho two states named, the following
board of directors sounds pretty substantial: President, II. F. Wilson,

manager Is a Wisconsin man, G. C.
Tlie plans of the company bave been
drawn in a largo way. and their exe-
ution Is in the hands of Oenerul Manager Robson. While on tlie topic of
personnel, it may be mentioned that
L. S. Tucker, of Everett, Wash., Is
superintendent of construction, that
N. Dowen Is logging superintendent,
and that DeWolf & Ham, construction
engineers, of Cranbrook, are building
the b!g flume that is reported to be
tlie longest wator flume used for
fluming logs, on the American continent.
Big Limits   Record Flume
Referring first to the question of
limits, tbe company owns 10,000 acres
of timber in tbe Moyie district, commencing at a point nine miles from
tlie mill site at Wattsburg. Of this
70 per cent. Is spruce—hence the company's name—20 per cent Ib pine and
the balance is larch and other soft
These limits whicli are traversed
by Moyie river, are being developed
by a flume 13 miles long, starting
from a dam on the Moyle In tbe heart
of the timber, this dam both furnishing
tlie main water supply for the flume,
and also providing storage for 2,000,-
000 feet of logs. Seven tributary
creeks feed the flume at various
points, as It proceeds, on a gradient
of VA to 1% Per cent., through two
300-foot tunnels through obstructing
ridges, and over one high long trestle, to Its terminus.
At the mill-site, a depressed area
about 100 acres in extent will be converted into a storage pond of 10,000,-
000 to 15,000,000 feet capacity, by a
dam, and water from the flume. Immediately below tills will be a second
pond, rive acres in extent, capable of
handling 750,000 feet, which will feed
the logs directly to the mill. Switches
will permit tho logs being delivered
from tbe flume Into nny desired boom
In the storage pond, or into the log
pond. If desired.
In the ordinary East Kootenay winter, the flume may be expected to
go out of business In December, If not
earlier, and the company has provided for this eventuality by acquiring
6,000 acres of timber east of Cranbrook, from which point Wattsburg
Ib distant eight miles. The logs from
Cranbrook tract will be brought to
the mlllslto by rail, as required, an-
Hiiring winter operation of the plant

the local office regarding tlie two departments Is simplified.by the new arrangement, there being more or less
of a consolidation of what have ln the
past been a number of separate accounts.

New Branch of Education to Be
Inaugurated Here For The
Fall Term
The regular monthly meeting of the
Cranbrook school board was held In
ths council chamber Friday evening
last. Those present were chairman
\V. H. Wilson, Mrs. Jackson, Mrs.
Miles, w. A. Nlsbet and secretary T.
M. Roberts.
The most Important question to
come up was that of a commercial
course in connection with the high
school, aud after somo discussion,
which was strictly to ihe point, a motion by W. A. Nisbet, seconded by Mrs.
Jackson, was unanimously carried to
the effect that the necessary steps
be takeii to inaugurate a commercial course at the Cranbrook high
school. The new branch of training
win commence With the fall term in
September. The matters of securing
the necessary faculty and equipping
the room will be goue ahead with iu
due course. Students wishing to enter upon this new training will be required to pass through tho high school
entrance. The board members desire
that this new course bo given publicity
in order that prospective commercial
students In the district and surrounding towns may become aware of Uie
inauguration ot this branch and avail
themselves of its advantages.
Cousiderable discussion ensued lu
regard to boarding facilities for those
now resident at outside points who
wish to take the commercial course.
hut ultimately the matter was dropped
as it did not come under tlie Jurisdiction ot the board.
Tlie secretary had correspondence
'-0 hand from the Remington and Vn-
lerwood typewriter company's, quot-
ng prices on macliir.es. It had been
proposed thai one machine be pur-
tiased as a nucleus for a commercial
course If such were Instituted. It
was decided that one should be pur-
tased Immediately, and it will be a
No. 10. self-start ing Remington, at
$115 cash.
The committee appointed at a previous meeting to look into the matter
ot larger desks for one of the schoolrooms had not secured sufficient, particulars ln order that definite action
might be taken, and were thereupon
(riven an extension ot time. Six large-
desks had been transferred to the
room requiring larger desks for the
pupils, by way of an experiment, and
Mrs. Jackson stated that they bad
proven to be much more satisfactory
than the ones now in use.
On a motion by W. A. Nisbet and
Mrs. Miles, a requisition will be sent
to the department of Education for
the Central high .school flag, to be on
hand for the fall term.
At this juncture the accounts as
read were adopted and ordered paid.
A motion was put through requesting the new chief of police, after his
arrival here, to act as truant officer
for the year 1921. Some of the trustees were almost positive that a number of children were not attending
chool and thought that they should be
made to do so.
Secretary was Instructed to write
the caretaker of the South Ward
school asking him to put the swings of
that school tn good order.
On a motion, the*ground committee
were asked to look after the garden
problems of the Central school, their
expenditures being authorized. Forty
new trees had arrived recently, and
the committee will bee that they are

There are indications in several directions that a forward
movement is beginning to make
itself evident in this district
and surrounding country. In
the very near future, these indications will be more clearly evident, and they are such at the
present time as to give every
reason to believe this district is
only yet on the threshold of development. The activity at
Wattsburg which is taken particular notice of in this issue,
as it develops will accentuate
business in general throughout
the district, and attract close
attention to this territory. Mining activities are reviving and
agricultural development is be
ing pushed witli greater earn
estness than hitherto. More
than rumors are afloat that
otlier lumber concerns in the
immediate territory are planning new campaigns and development. It is to be regretted,
however, that much of the capital that goes into new development is in many cases outside
capital. This is especially true
of mining enterprises. Boosting alone is not sufficient; it
must be supported by consistent
effort, and tlie best consistent
effort is manifested by the in
vesting of funds made in the
district. Why is local capital
not more often invested in local
concerns? This is not true only
here, but in nearly every district in the Dominion. Invest
ment can be made with greater
discretion in that territory in
which the investor is best posted, and about which he has every opportunity to ascertain all
the information necessary. Thc
best proof of the solidarity of
East Kootenay would be shown
by the putting back of the pro
fits already reaped into the
same region whence they came.
The action of the school
board at. Its last meeting will
provide a further opportunity
for educational benefits for
Cranbrook boys and girls under
the shadow of the parental roof.
No longer will it be necessary
for children to go afield for
training in commercial lines,
for, under the present plans it
will be possible to complete a
regular course ln three years,
equal, if not superior, to the
majority of commercial courses
offered in other centres. As
indicated by the outline of the
course published recently in
these columns, it will compare
favorably with the present academic course in its demands
upon the pupil. It ls not to be
regarded as a source of refuge
for those who find It Impossible
to measure tip to the standards
of the Tegular course-  Its chief
aim will be to afford an alternative to seriously minded stud-
eiils who plan to enter the commercial world. It includes a
certain amount of the usual
course with the addition of
strictly commercial subjects
and as such constitutes a vocational department. Such au
opportunity should prove attractive to many in the immediate vicinity and this should
tend to make Cranbrook more
and more the educational centre
for East Kootenay. It is impossible to state the influence
which a live, up-to-date and
progressive school may yield
for a town or community, As
an investment alone it will
prove worth while, but its greatest value will lie in its cduca
tional accomplishments.
British Columbia delegates
at the recent Mining Convention held in Portland, Ore., left
no doubt in the minds of the
members of the gathering regarding the mining outlook in
the province. That there is a
tremendously rich field awaiting development in this part of
the province is gradually being
driven home to those interested
in tlie mining opportunities in
tliis section. And in recognition
uf British Columbia's position
iu the mining realm, and of the
Kootenay district in particular,
the convention has accepted
most heartily the invitation of
the Nelson delegates to meet in
that city next year. The North
West International Mining Convention some two thousand in
strength will accordingly in-
rade tli is territory next spring
and a splendid opportunity will
present itself to bring the two
sections of the Kootenay dis-
Irict before the attention of
mining men in general. Whatever differences may exist between the two districts, every
effort should be made to make
the most of this opportunity.
Definite plans should be laid
well in advance of the convention and it may be possible to
induce some of the delegates to
look this way and see for themselves first hand the mineral
wealth of this district which
only awaits capital and some
deevlopment plans.
A sad solitary figure, at

upon the fates which have made
him one of the saddest and most

found some solace in the fact
that only superior force made

that he was still dear to thousands in France, and even to
some in England, those who
counted him a brilliant foe and
a remarkable genius. But no
such consolation falls to the

The lowest peasant In Germany

Nearly all Authorities on Canadian
Immigration concur in the opinion
that the very best immigrants that
have come to Canada from foreign
countries are those from Iceland.
Sweden, Norway, nnd Denmark, and
it is a very gratify ing feature of
the tide finding its way to our shores
that it still contains a substantial
proportion of these peoples, whilst
a handsome contribution of this
same fine stock is annually donated
by the United States.
Physically of a sturdy, handsome
type the Scandinavian peoples are
found, almost without exception, to
be cleanly, industrious, and progressive in every respect, mnking the
most desirable class of citizens and
being numbered nmong the most
successful and prosperous farmers
the Dominion posseses. Education
is widespread in their native countries, and they come to Canada imbued with the same high ideals of
learning and culture. There is no
language problem with them as they
are eager to master English and to
develop  all   the  requisites  of  com-
?lete and successful citizenship,

The Scandinavian races aro the
most readily assimilable of Canada's
immigrants mixing freely and readily with the Anglo-Saxons, intermarrying, and avoiding the handicap
which colony settlement gives to the
progress of foreign people. They
are deeply religious, adherents of
the Lutheran faith for the most
part, and churches spring up wherever settlement takes place with
social life centring there. A highly
sociable people they have their own
social and political organizations
wherever settlement warrants this,
and their own papers are circulated
throughout Western Canada. From
their first days in Canada they take
deep interest in Dominion polities,
turning readily to matters of government. Several have attained the
honors of the provincial legislatures
■whilst men of the Scandinavian race
are to be found occupying public offices of every nature in the West.
They are sincere and earnest students, and thetr achievements in
learning are remarkable when their

Rhodes scholars from Manitoba
have been Scandinavians.
The first settlers came to Canada
from Iceland in the year 1872, but
the real movement began tn 1874
when some five hundred left thoir
native shores for the new continent.
More than fifteen hundred new settlers came in 1S76, settling in Manitoba and North Dakota. Since 11380
thty have come to Canada in a more
or less uninterrupted stream from
their* northern homes, whilst the
Dominion has received a substantia
number of those who first settled in
various parts of tho Western United
States. At the time of the 1011
census there were 49,19-1 Canadian
citizens who had been horn in Norway and Sweden; 7,109 in Iceland:
and 4,297 in Denmark. From 1900
lo 1919 there were admitted lo Canada 0.54(5 citizens of Denmark; 4,501
from Iceland; 20,618 from Norway;
and 28,337 from Sweden. Of the
Scandinavians in Canada 97.^2 of
the total arc to be found in thc
four Western provinces.
In Manitoba the greater number
of these people centre about the city
of Winnipeg and few are to be found
elsewhere in the province. Large
settlements are prospering at Lan-
sorvice at Claresholm, Alberta,
genburg and Stockholm, at Buchan«
an and Wadena in Saskatchewan,
whilst there are also many in the
Duck Mountains and at Fort Pelley,
Alberta has by far the largest share
of these people and they are to be
found all along the Calgary-Edmonton line in some of the most fertile
and prosperous farming communities. In British Columbia where extensive settlement has taken place
Uie same pleasing progress is exhibited.
A most gratifying feature of
Scandinavian settlement in Canada
is that it is almost wholly agricultural, and in the West they will be
found in the richest and most progressive districts. Whilst retaining
their national individuality, their
customs, language and religion they
arc most truly British in sentiment
and intensely patriotic as their fine
contribution to Canada's army evidenced. With an inherent realiza-
tion of their own worth they stand
upright, without embarrassment,
upon their own feet and are absorbed
as Canadians without losing their
fine individual qualities., Clean-

Development   of the   West
The proceedings of the Grand
Trunk Arbltra-
tion Board now
sitting in Montreal in connection
with the valuation and acquirement of the
Grand Trunk and
Grand Trunk Pacific Railways by
the Canadian
Government, were
enlivened by the
examination of
Col. J. S, Dennis,
of the Canadian
Pacific Railway.
Called as a witness to the history of the Canadian West, Col.
Dennis—who perhaps, has a wider
and more personal knowledge
of its growth and
development than
any other man.
Described gra-
p h i c a 11 y, the
changes that have
taken place in that great Western
territory from the time when a
young man, in 1872, he first went
West in the employ of the Department of the Interior until the present day — its early settlement and
struggles, the method of land survey., first transportation lines, its
agricultural beginnings, commercial
extensions, mineral resources, etc.—
showing by tabulated statements
aad maps, the steady increase that
has resulted during thc period under discussion, and under cross examination, giving his opinion of the
future that lies before it.
Col. Dennis then went on to tell
of the development of the West. He
gave figures showing the increase
In population for various periods;
the growth of bank clearings at principal points; thc increase in elevator
capacity; tho total land acreage and
tho acreage under cultivation; the
land tributary to existing railway
lines available for settlement; the
suitability of land for settlement;
the growth of the railways; a description of the Peace River country; the amount of grain produced;
the value of a settler to the railroads and the country; irrigation development and extension; mineral
output and the prospect of the Alberta oil fields.
Before cross examination by the
Government counsel, and after a
brief description of the proposed
work of the Western Canada Colonization Company, the witness was
asked to give his opinion of the outlook for future development of
Western Canada.
"Very briefly, then/' said Col
Dennis, "my opinion with regard to
the development of the Western
Prairie Provinces is conditioned on
one fact only. We have, as I have
shown, at the present time, thirty-
two million acres of land being cultivated and made productive. We

that serve that present productive
area, an area equally large that Is
absolutely unproductive. If in the
near future we can make thin two
or three million acres of land that
lie within fifteen miles of existing
railway, productive of settlement, it
is a fair estimate that it will more
than double the productiveness of
the country, because, if thc thirty-
two million acres that we now hnvo
under cultivation produce the traffic we have at present, the colonization of the additional thirty-three
million acres will produce a great
deal more than a similar amount."
"Now," he continued, "whether wo
can colonise it or not depends unon
the government. If the government
—in view of the present railway
situation, — are going to impose
restrictions with regard to colonization, of courso that means a
lengthened time within which development can be carried out. Assuming, as is suggested, that wc.
have the door open to the character
of colonization which brought about
the settlement of the thirty-two million acres and the development of
that country from what it was
forty-nine years ago to what it is
today, which resulted wholly and
solely from the settlement of the
country — there was not anything
else which brought about this development — my opinion is that a
very rapid development can bo produced within the next few years,
and the future of the Grand Trunk
Pacific absolutely depends upon it."
"To sum up I will say that if aP
interests take hold of the mnttrr intelligently and agressively anil the
Government will consider the in-
Interests of the National Railway1!
nnd not bar the door, it is my opinion we should have a very marked

In this drifting there seems to he
design. Whllo the government naturally objects when Mackenzie King
puts forward an amendment on motion
to go into supply, there is an Imprecision that It Is not averse to letting
matters go as they are.
Obviously a certain amount of
trouble may bo headed off by allowing
matters to drift, lt is admitted on all
sides that, the session must end by the
lUth of June, in order that the Prime
Minister may he allowed to attend the
Dominion Conference. Of course, he
could go even were Parliament not
through Its business; but with matters
uncertain as thoy aro, ho would hardly
daro do Mutt. If things drift along as
at present, there will ho a big Jam;
tho most troublesome subjects will
probably be left off until near the tnd,
ami iu tho hurry lo get through they
will receive much less consideration
than they otherwise would have.
Ballaytyno's statement on the operations of tho government's Mercantile
Marino during 1920, is further proot
that neither the government ships nor
Its railways can be depended upon to
reduce the national debt. He rather
played up tho fact that there was an
operating profit of $781,000, which
meant that 2.35 per cent, had been
earned on the investment. All things
considered this was not a bad showing
and is strong proof that tho Mercantile Marine is well managed.
Whatever one may think of the
policy of the government operating,
these vessels, the fact that they car
ried $50,000,000 wortii of Canadian
products to the four corners of the
globe is proof that they have rendered
some service. Our export trade has
fallen very seriously during the last
year, but it probably would have done
much worse had It not heen for the
Mercantile Marine.
As a matter of fact these vessels
could have made money last year had
Ballantyne placed some of them on the
Great Lukes. He has seven that could
havo been carrying grain all last fall;
hut for some reason or other he refused to allow this. President Norcrosa
of Canadian Steamships said recently
that 1920 was a very profitable year
for, while not much money had been
made out of the ocean carrying trade,
a great deal had been made from
traffic on inland waters, which means
tho Great Lakes. One of the strong
arguments for the building of these
vessels lias been that they were necessary to help out the National railways,
That being so. why aro they not used
to help the railways out on the Lakee?
Tbe C.P.R. finds it profitable to operate boats on these waterways, why not
the government railways?
Mackenzie King has been doing his
best to make a dent in the government's majority, and while he has
moved several amendments, he has
not had much luck. His best showing
was on the amendment to the address,
It takes a great deal more than an ordinary amendment io line up Dr. Michael Clark behind King, for the man
from Hed Deer doesn't like the Liberal
Chieftain, so when the Doctor cutsi
away be always carries some others
with him. When this happens, great
Ih King's disappointment.
Tho prospects of an early general
olecton are still much discussed, but
tliere arc uo signs of It. Those who
believe that it must be held during the
fall say that the government will bo
driven to it because it can*t hang on.
But the undeniable fact is that it does
hang on, and having a majority of 25
does so quite comfortably. Others
persuade themselves that there will be
an early election on tho ground that
Melghen musi strengthen his cabinet;
but the majority in the House ts quite
satisfied with the cabinet. While lt
might bo desirable to bring In new
blood, slill ft is not absolutely neces-
collected on catalogues nnd straight J
advertising materials imported. The
Saturday Evening Post, which has a
circulation of over 1,000,000, and carries a largo amount of American advertising ls tbe publication really aimed ut, tho assumption being Uiat If the
irculation of these journals Is crippled in Canada, tbe Americans will
not be able to seil nearly as much

INVERMERE, April 9th.—A concert
of local talent was held In the ball
room of the Invermere hotel this week
in which many local artists look part.
One of tbe chief features was the rendering of Haydn's Toy Symphony by
a number of the younger children of
tho community under the direction of
Miss Dora K. Bodecker.
Work hus been started on the main
artery of what Is known us the road
around the western side of Lake Windermere. A large gang is engaged under tlie direction of road Foreman
Arthur Newton. Tills road commences
at the Junction with the Banff-Wln-
dermere highway in the centre of the
village and passing west turns to the
south and borders tlie fumous Lake
Windermere until it reaches the southern end of that lake, where It joins
tlie maiin highway on the east side
connecting Golden with Cranbrook.
This gives an alternative route around
tbe beautiful lake and with its connecting links makes one of tlie circle
tours, popular with automobile travellers, of forty miles in extent.
Tlie latest advice relative to the
construction work on the Banff-Windermere highway Is that there are about thirty-five men working on the
western end and possibly another thirty working on the eastern end of the
construction. The bridging of the
Kootenay river at "Tlie Crossing" lias
been completed so that when the season commences It wfll be possible for
cars entering here to mako a run Into
the mountains of some thirty miles,
and enable the occupants to dip their
feet in the swift running blue waters
of the Kootenay river. The main span
of the bridge is about sixty feet
"The Crossing" Ib at a point about
seevnty-five miles from the headwaters of the river, not far north of where
the Vermilion river joins tht* parent
stream of the Kootenay. Unless
very much larger gang is put on there
is but little hope that much more of
the road, farther thuu to the bridge,
will be open this year for automobile

Tlie government has everything to

There Is probably no portion of the

production of th© province. Last year
it produced 861,649 tons of coal, valued at $4,308,245; 68,190 tons of coke.

Behind this slope or swell Is u

this is a flat bench. On this bench will
be located tho town. Ouo hundred
residences, acordlng to the company's
plans, will be built there the coming

two tanks on the bench, so tho joint
fire-water system will have the advantage of pressure both from the
pump and from gravity, in case of a

Review, refers to tho death of Mrs.
Richard Lane, of Sirdar, to whose
passing brief reference was made last
The saddest news that has reached
Sirdar in many months was received
on Monday, when word came of the
death at Cranbrook hospital of Mrs
Richard Lane, to whicli institution
she had gone from here about seven
weeks ago.
Deceased, whose home was at Macleod, Alta., had spent most of the winter here with her sister, Mrs. Whiteside, and had ulso been a frequent
visitor during tlie past three years,
during which time sho made many
friends. Tlie remains were brought
to Creston on Wednesday, and the
funeral took place from the Methodist
church in that town on Thursday afternoon to Creston cemetery, the fun-
al arrangements being in the hands
of tho G.W.V.A-, Rev. G. Knox conducting the laBt Bad rites, and Major
Mallandaine, Major Garland, E. W.

was ln her thlrty-Becond year. To
mourn her loss she leaves a husband,
wlio served overseas, and two sons
beside her parents and several brothers and sisters, most of whom were

When they hit they slushed out with

"Tom Uphill got Into action with a

how to rejoice. Mr. Anderson gave
an imitation of Major Burde making
a speech.
"After tho lieutenant-governor verbally assented to the 86 bills passed
during tho session, "God Save the

was accompnniod by tho big barrage
of tho evening. Books, papers, filing

Considerable interest lias been evinced iu the cases which were heard

Hoyal Poolroom. Theso cases date

disposed of by Magistrate I-task the

being fined $.100, wkilo the two other
CQ-ses wore withdrawn by the prosecution. Tlie only reason whicli can bo
gathered for tho delay ensuing before
laying tin; information in the cases
fs that ll was not found convenient on
account of other work whicli they had
in hand, to bring some of the essentia*
witnesses iu before.
A. B. MacDonald, K.C., cf MacDonald & Nisbet, prosecuted the cases for
the Crown, and the defendants were
represented by Mr. II. Herchmer, barrister, of this city. Tht chief witnesses for tlie prosecution were Messrs.
W. F. Sibley, of Seattle, and A. S.
Priest and A. Collard, of Vancouver.
They testified to having purchased liquor on tlie date specified at the places
concerned, but in the Benson case lt
was brought out that it was tlie bartender who had made alleged sale
at the Queen's which was made the
basis of this case, while In the third
case the charges had to be withdrawn
on account of failure to make proper
identification of the defendant. Objections on these grounds made by the
defense, which were allowed. Mr
MacDonald, ln prosecuting, asked for
tho limit of tlie law, which would have
meant a fine of $600.

Of all the beasts which man has
long tamed, the cat appears at flrBt
sight to bave the least trace of occasional relapses into barbarism, sayr*
the London Times. But It Is truer to
say that the cat has lost none of her
prlmative instincts than that she retains none. Cats are essentially un-
domesticated, though for tbelr own
good purpose they condescend to use
our firesides and tables. They were
originally solitary animals, as the wild
cat or the lynx is today; and while
the gregarlousness of the dog and
horse enables them to transfer their
affection to mankind, the cat makes
no such deep friendships. What dog
could bave endured the desolation of
the ruined and deserted villages of
France? Yet when all else had left,
the cats dwelt on, In lairs among the
felled fruit trees;, because at heart
they are Indifferent to man.
Prospectors Notice
Cranbrook, B.C., April llth, 1921
On April mih, in the City Hall, Cranbrook, B.C., at 8 p.m., Mr. A. O. Langley,
Resident Mining Engineer of Mineral District No. 5, will give the second ot his series
of lectures, and on Ihe following afternoon at 2 p.m. in the same place, will discuss
local ores nnd problems incidental to prospecting for same.
His lecture on the 19th will be upon the subject of Mineralogy as applicable to
Die local district and will be of considerably more real local service than even the
first of his scries.   The lecture will be Illustrated by lantern slides as before-
All who are al all interested in Beelng the mineral resources of East Kootenay
developed intelligently are welcome and it is hoped that every person in a position to
do bo will attend and, If at all practicable, bring along samples of local ores in which
they are interested.    Likewise any problems in prospecting should be submitted.
In this connection owing to the necessity of full consideration being given such
it is expected that due notice will be given this Association or Mr. Langley regarding
any such questions as may require more than a conversational answer. The wisdom
of this requirement will be readily understood.
All parties having any distinct type of commercial deposit whether metallic or
non-metallic or anyone interested in the securing of such within the East Kootenay
District are especially invited to write regarding the same either to give reliable information such as they may desire to have placed before the public or ask for such
and the services of the Association will be freely placed at their disposal.
Only reliable data is desired and in cases where the discoverers of such commercial deposits desire to have the location of same kept within their own control
such particulars should be omitted until such time as the discoverers may desire to
make them public. This Is mentioned in order that a discoverer of any commercial
mining deposit may feel assured that he can safely take advantage of the assistance of
this Association and those co-operating with it, without endangering the discovery.
No admission charges.   Special features may be announced by dodgers later.

No national problem in Canada is

In a country with such great areas of

But even If it were not so and planting
