Drowning Tragedy
Mrs. I). C. Coleman, Visiting the
Camp, Meets Death, Despite
Brave Efforts at Rescue
The city was thoroughly stirred on
Tuesday when the news came through
from invermere of the death of Mrs-
D. C. Coleman, wife of D. C Coleman,
C. P. R. vice-president, and president
of tho K. V. R„ by drowning at Lake
Mudermere that day.
Early residents here recall the fact
[hat Mrs. Coleman, for some time
prior to her marriage, resided in Crnai-
brook with her family, being a Miss
Anna ranGt. daughter of a well known
contractor of this city. Their home at
present is in Winnipeg, where Mr.
Joleman was at the time of the occurrence. He waa summoned weBt
at once, and it Ib understood that tbe
body was being held at Lake Windermere for his arrival, when it will be
brought to Cranbrook, the funeral arrangements being made knowu at that
Mrs. Coleman was exceedingly well
Known all through the west, and leav-
9s besides her husband, two young
sons, to whom deep sympathy is ex-
-ended by their many friends.
This is the first occurrence ot Ite
kind iu the history o( the new Camp,
and that death should iu this way take
toll from one of the high officials of
the company establishing the Qfcmp Is
one of cruel fortune's most whimsical vagaries.
(Special to tbe Herald)
Invermerei B.C., August 24- — Ainu; with the whole of western Canada, this part was shocked by the
death on Tuesday through drowning
of Mrs. Dalton 0. Coleman, wife of
rice-president D. 0. Coleman, of the
C. P. 11., Winnipeg).
Mra. Coleman had for the past four
weeks been enjoying a quiet rest with
her two boys and nurse at Lake Wln-
,U riuere Camp. On Monday she took
*i very active uud leading part In the
reception tendered to tlie imperial
,'ress delegates here. In tht evening
sho attended a dance at the club
uouse. The following morning she
rnso early, went for a horseback ride
with Mrs. Hackney, wife of Dr. Hack-
ney, Calgary. Contrary to her usual
practice, immediately on her return
from tlie ride she entered the lake for
.i swim, at about eleven o'clock in the
morning, lu this she was accompanied by u companion who was uot able
in swim. The place chosen for the
• witii was a gulet but deep bay mostly
protected from tlie Strong south wind
which was blowing ut the lime. Wlien
swimming about fifty feet from the
shore Mrs. Coleman apparently met
with dlfllcultles and called for assistance. John Taynton, who waa engaged on tho shore mending a canoe,
immediately pushed out to the rescue,
and was successful In reaching Mrs.
Coleman. At a critical moment the
canoe was upset, precipitating both
Mrs. Coleman and her rescuer into
tlie water again. Another effort by
Mr- Taynton waa more successful, and
good progress was being made towards tho shore when the canoe was
again upaot by tho waves, thrown on
top of Mr. Taynton, separating him
from Mrs. Coleman who immediately
sank In deep water. The canoe drifted away, and Mr. Taynton, in a complete state of exhaustion from his efforts, made his way to the shore.
The alarm having meanwhile been
given, a large fleet of boats and canoes wns made available and a search
for the body took place. There was
uo success In this task for about three
hours after the accident, when It was
found about fifty feet from the shore
Dun* aUrted, after which water will. tn ten feet of water,

Government  Is  Keeping Clofte
Watch on Situation in
Ottawa. — The political spellbinders
ure as bu.:y now as the binders ln tlie
grain llelds, which ls a very good indication of how busy they are. At
Nemmarket, Ontario, Mackenzie King
began a series of meetings which will
take lilm throughout Canada. Four
days later at Stirling. Ontario. Mr.
Melghen delivered his first political
announcements since he became the
Prime Minister, and he, too, will spend
much of his time in the next two or
three months in going up and down
the country, among other things visiting tlie West again, going as far as
the coast. In the meantime the Parmers and Labor ure busy. In Ontario the former has boen hard at It nil
summer. In a political sense they
neither slumber nor sleep.
If by the fall the electors do not
fully understand the issues of tlie day
It will not be the fault of the political
lenders. The chieftains of tlie two
old-time parties have been slow In en-
leering the field, but they are now making up for lost time. In their own
Interest they should have been at It
long ago. The country wants to be
talked to. when the public Is really wrought up the only thlnj to do Is
to try and reason with It, the probability being that between reason and
persuasion it will be brought into a
more reasonable frame of mind. Too
long the Importance of the personality
of public men lias been lost sight of.
During the war the country waB carried along on the tide of a great peril, the importance of which danger
ubordlnated the Imjiortance ot leadership. At least, the country did without It; but this strong Impelling influence having passed, the personality
of political leaders becomes of more
It will be observed that much Importance Is being attached to Ontario.
Tht government looks on that province as Important, being eager to hold
what support It hns (hcie. The Liberals consider it important because
thoy   need   support   In  that   province
very badly. Besides It Is Mackenzie
King's own province and a followng
of but eight or nine In a representation of eighty-two does not look very
veil. The Farmers have made very
trong inroads on the support of both
parties. Indeed, there seemed to be
un Inrllnr.tlon to leave the leld to them
In tbe rural districts, at least. This,
however, will not do, unless the old
parties desire to put themselves completely out nf tlie running. Then again. Labor hns been iiuite ominous to
the regulars with Its large following
In tlie towns and cities. For the time
being Quebec Is being loft alone by the
spellbinders; by tiie Liberals because
thoy consider it useless to speak to the
convrrted. by the Oovernment for the
probable reason that It Is looking for a
moro convenient season.
Tlie speeches of thc Prime Minister
nd Mackenzie King differ very mater*
My, Tho formers wns very militant In character, hard-hitting being
quite notlccuble. it being desired to
rally out the old-time forces. It was
packed full of common sonse, and undoubtedly will appeal strongly to hard-
headed men, who have i. stake In the
country, Mackenzie King's effort was
not us militant. It contains a rallying call, hut there wbh a strong persuasive appeal to old Liberals, a painstaking effort to convince them that
the Unionist government, which many
of them supported, no longor exists.
noth will, no doubt, follow these lines right through; It Is natural to them
and besides, It best suits their purpose
Just now.
In both pronouncements there was
little ot a new character. This was to
bo expected. Both leaders' plan of
campaign has been de'ermlned by circumstances. In appealing for support for the policy that, as he put It,
"has brought us so far." the Prime
Minister was bound to defend In the
main what has been done; and In order to gain support, Mr. King's method has been chiefly one of condemnation. In tho working out of policies
It Is unlikely that we will get very
far from the old positions.
The political picnics provide an excellent means (or getting a line not
only on the proeperlty of the country,

Tlie meetiug of the City
Council and a representative of
the 11 C. and Alberta Tower Co.
thia week promises well ior the
interest of light and power
consumers of the city. It means
that not very tar in the future
rales are going to be decreased.
it is scarcely believeable that a
company would obligate itself
in several directions as this
concent is doing if it did not
have excellent prospects of being able to (ttjtver the "-good*:
11 the company can come
through according to lhe proposed contract it is quite safe
to assert that the rates to consumers will be dropped considerably, if they don't come
through then the city at any-
raie will be no worse off than
it is now.
Apart from the attractiveness of cheap rates from the
householder's point of view, allowing of the installation of
the numerous labor-saving devices which are tending so
much to take the "work" out of
housework, the prospect of
cheap power for industrial purposes is fraught with greater
possibilities as regards the
future of tho city. One thing
above all else has centred the
manufacturing plants of the
country in Ontario as they are
today, and that is the hydro-
electrical development. To
some the idea of attracting new
industries to Cranbrook by
means of cheap power rates is
chimerical, they will even scoff
at it. If they hold themselves
open to conviction, however,
they will not scoff for long.
The increasing population of
the West, combined with the
ever-mounting costs of distribution is causing manufacturers in all lines to turn their
serious attention to this part of
the Dominion, and the question
is being asked whether it will
not pay better to manufacture
here in tbe west than in the
east and save considerable on
the cost of distribution. Freight
rates on raw materials are far
less than on the finished products so that by manufacturing
closer to the consuming centres there is saving all along the
line. A city that can offer cheap
power and plenty of it has a
drawing card that never fails
to interest the captain of industry. It is his sine qua non,
and the deciding factor when
all other things are equal.
A new era in the growth of
Cranbrook may result from the
coming of cheap power to the
city. It will help put the city
in a position to take its due
share in thc general expansion
which is going to envelop the
West In the next decade or two.
Investigation fn a number or important projects have been assisted
during the post year through grants
made' by tho Honorary Advisory
Council for Scientific and Industrial
Research, and those in charge of this
work are encouraged by the results
secured thus fur. In the annual report for the year ended March 31,
1920, the Administrative Chairman
has dealt with the extensive activf-
ties thut have been undertaken.
Foremost among the projects fostered by the Advisory Council has been
the removal of the handicap on the
production of "Industrial alcohol,"
which tbe Inland Revenue Act at
present Imposes ou it. This matter
was discussed at considerable length
in the 1918-1919 report of thu Administrative Chairman, aud it van
Urged thnt tho uct should be .yueud-
ed so an to make the production ot
industrial alcohol ns tree from restrictions us It Is lu Great Britain and
the United States, avers tho New
New Westminster British Columbian,
According to tho provisions of the
old uct, alcohol can be denuturcd for
industrial or other purposed, oul>
lu Ottawa. Methylated spirits for
consumption ln British Columbia
must at present, therefore, be conveyed to this province from Ottawa,
a distance ot 2,KOO miles, at a
charge for transportation which, unless borne by the Inland Revenue
Department, adds seriously to tho
price at which the consumer obtains
this Province, which could, under
amended regulations, provide all the
Industrial alcohol required for use
within the Dominion.
The handicap which the consumers experience in the other Provinces Is only less serious because
the distance ot these from Ottawa
ls less than In the case of British Columbia, but the effect is ;ho
same, that Ib, it tends to limit the
ues of denatured alcohol, except, In
a few Industrial lines, In which,
though the cost couiUp, it is indispensable for manufacturing purposes. This effect of the act was,
ot course, not Intended, because its
provisions are a survival of the time
when Canada consisted of only two
provinces, and when, also, the industries which used denatured alcohol were few fn number, and with
a limited output. The misfortune
was that the act was not modernized at least soon after Congress had
freed the manufacture of industrial
alcohol In the United States from
the legislative restrictions under
which lt operated until 1907.
What the removal of these restrictions on tho production of denatured alcohol In Canada would mean
limy be gathered from the results
of this removal in the production in
the United States. Before the act
of 1906, which permits denaturing
of alcohol at any distillery under
conditions easily observed, the quantity ot denatured alcohol used annually did not exceed 1,600,000 proof
wine gallons, but after 1907 the
consumption lt it Increased rapidly,
aud reached 16-91.3,355 proof gallons in 1913, aud 90,644,722 proof
gallons in 1918, while the total amount of denatured alcohol made in
Canada in 1917 wub only 252,000
proof gallons. p It the quantity consumed In Cannda were in proportion to population It would amount
to Bj000,000 proof Imperial gallons.
Denatured alcohol ls all-Important
in a large number of lines of industry. This may be gathered from
tho enormously-enhanced consumption of lt ln the United States since
1906, and the annual consumption
In Germany of more than 200,000,-
000 proof Imperial gallons in the

To the Prime Minister's critics
Russia—which, as SIgnor Nlttl recently had the good cause to remind
the world, so far from being an enemy of Great Britain and Italy and
France, ls an ally who has fallen on
misfortune—ts an object of more
bitter hostility than Germany herself.
There was general acquiescence in
the decision of the Supreme Council
to meet the Germans face to face at
Spa. To meet a single Soviet Minister in London is an enormity. The
Treaty of Versailles empowered the
Reparations Commission to give Germany leave to purchase the food and
raw material necessary before she
paid a penny ot indemnity. Russia,
lt is now contended, must not part
with an ounce of her gold for such
purposes, because the creditors of
'Russia have first claim on her resources, It ls of some interest to
consider how Italy and France and

Probably never In America were
there such days of thanksgiving as
there were when It was known that
by a stroke of the pen ip Montreal on
September Oth, 1700, a, continent had
been added to the domain ot the British king- The French had surrendered tlr lust of their lands in Uie new
world; the wars which had been waged for many years were thus at an
end. Of course overseas Amherst's
successes were lauded to tha ski-...,
while In Uie French palace there was
great discouragement over the outcome of hostilities,
Governor u. mard of Massachusetts
proclaimed a day of thanksgiving tor
the great event. There we're parades
of ail classes and a day of patriotic
Bpeechmaklng, while cannon roared in
honor of the event. Thomas Fox-
croft preached in the "Old Church in
Boston" rrom the text, "The Lord
tiath done great things for us whereof we aro glad." "Long has lt heen
the common opinion," he declared,
"that Canada must he conquered.
Now we behold his majesty's glorious
troopH treading upon the high places
of the enemy, their last fortress delivered up, and the whole country surrendered to the king, In the person of
his general, the intrepid, the serene,
the successful Amherst." Another
minister, after venturing tlie hope that
the French would accept their lot with
line spirit, predicted that sixty million people would be living in the new
world within a century and a half.
Everywhere lt was tbe same. The
victory at Montreal was bailed as the
harbinger of a new and better day for
the continent, as the beginning ot a
period of progress and prosperity for
the new world which had been torn
for long years by bitter struggles between the two races from overseas.
How well these men predicted can be
seen in the light of present day accomplishments, although the land haa
now been divided Into two great countries, Uie Dominion ot Canada and the
United States of America.

Lake Minnewanka, near Banff, Alberta, attracts many motorists during
the entire summer (the winter sees
the ice-boats gliding across Ua
smooth surface), it is an Ideal evening drive from Banff to tblsiake, aad
on the way it is interesting lo stop
at the animal enclosures where the
Government has established the wild
animals of the country. As the car
.speeds along on the trip, the sight of
the browsing elk is specially attractive. In the spring the stately mother elk stalks proudly about with
her young, in the fall the mating note
of the bull re-echoes down the open
valley. Many a battle-royal Is fought
by the males at mating time.
The Bow River is the headquarters
of the lover of waler sports. Canoes,
row-boats and launches arc to be had
any time of day. Plenty of good
fishing is to be found a short distance up the river. For an ideal
canoe trip there is nothing more picturesque thuu paddling up the Bow
River to Shadow Creek, which drains
the Vermillion Lakes. As the canoe
glides intu thu mirrored waters, the
swamp willows meet above the heads
of the peddlers; an occasional trout
darts from one shadow to another in
the depths below. Little hursts of
sunshine brighten the winding waterway till the canoe glides out a>gain
into unbroken sunshine and the wldo
sweep of the first Vermillion Lake.
The Bow Hlver Is a typical mountain stream aud has its rise sixty-five
miles west of BnntT and north of
Lake Louise. Its bend waters, the
Bow and Hector Lukes, are fed from
great Ice-fields, whicli, in ihe first
days of warm spring,- east their tribute Into the river, and tlie turbid
waters gathering strength with each
mile, tear madly down ihe narrow
confines bringing with them uprooted trees and all the debris lying
within their reach. The lover of the
water may obtain valuable information of several beautiful and exciting canoe trips at the boat-house.
The old tote-road of construction

the trip be made in early spring or
laic August It is scarcely possible to
fall to see the wild sheep which
abound in large flocks on the sunny
slopes ou the north side of the valley. During the summer they wander back in the hills, though an
occasional few muy be seen any time
of the year. In the early spring lhe
baby lambs trot along beside tholr
mothers; In the fall thc grout horned rams join thc various groups, and,

This article is his summing up of
tho chances of a great Canadian highway coming Into being.
Ho Canadian Motiirl.it« lU'seru1 a
1 am an average Canadian motorist.
As such I purchased a car In May
costing about seventeen hundred dollars at^the factory. Enquiry Indicates that of this sum, the Canadian
Government got, in duty and taxes,
five hundred dollars or more. During 1919 C7.000 motor cars were added to Canada's registration, and ut
$500 each such collections would amount to $33,500,000. A good many
more cars uro being added to Canada this year, but some of them are
made here (and the duty ls generally
on the parts Imported), tractors are
fmported free of duty, and there are
other exceptions; but at a safe guess
$20,000,000 Is Ottawa's share of our
motor car purchases. This ls the
best business the government ever
got Into. If provincial taxes ure the
same generally as they are In British Columbia. I find that the nine
provinces will rake off this year about six or seven millions on motor
cars. Xot a bad business for the provinces to be in!
The coat of collecting this income
is not like the income of the post ofllce- It is nbout the same us the cost
of collecting your salary.
It Is not my purpose to wrestle with
the financial problems of the government, but 1 wonder If the Dominion
parliament Is spending any mo.o on
highways today proportionately than
It spent before r dollar of revenue
was secured from gasoline vehicles'1

demand more?

For two dollars you can buy the

000 miles, but with the exception of
id miles in Ontario between Niagara
Falls and* Lake Huron the roads are
100 per cent. In the United States. If
Canadian motorists have their share
of the fifty thousand cars which are
claimed to use this road annually, we
spend over two million dollars a year
on them—with absolutely no return.

there were motors on the streets from
Ontario and Quebec, but those cars

folks at MeXabb's Corner lind suddenly that the old "township line roud"

trip of several hundred miles and reports some famous city is taking the
Inter Ocean Highway, naming streets
and hotels ufter it. The traveller relates how proud he was to see, all along, tlte sumo road signs and the same
tourists as they have at McNabb's- He

that It is anything but a good roud.
And this National Parks Highway, to
my certain knowledge, borrows pictures of Canadian scenery for Its Illustrated folders. Hut that's another

so well advertised in south-eastern
British Columbia, "The All Red
Route," fostered In Winnipeg, and tho
'Canadian Highway," on whicli a
committee works In Vancouver, are
one and all misnomers, aud can accomplish little until re-named and unified-
After we have the road, under a
sufficiently strong organization, road
signs (which should be supplied by
the Municipalities), and suitable literature are the basic and competitive
factors that will govern success.
"The King's International Highway" is on an average two hundred
miles north of the Yellowstone Trail
and six hundred miles north of the
Lincoln Highway. For eight hundred miles the northern route runs
close to the Great Lakes. Climatically the advantage Is all ours.

mountains within seventy-ilve miles
of the Canadian border. The nature
of such desert ls described In the following, clipped from the Lincoln
Highway propaganda literature:
"The western portion of tho United
States between the slopes of the Rockies and the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada and Cascades Is. In the parlance of geologists 'a basin of interior drainage.' The vast territory embraced in this region has no natural
outlet to the sea. Imagine a vast lake
of mud. the size of Lake Michigan and
Lake Superior put together, sdrround
It with barren, jagged mountains, and
break tts Interminable desolation of
glaring white and yellow with black
pock-marks of ancient crater rings;
move live hundred foot columns of
swirling salt and alkali constantly
back and forth over Its shimmering
lieat waves. In whicli mirages of cool
springs and clustering trees mock the
eye; and surmount it with a thirsty
brazen ball of fire, which leaves not
n vestige of moisture on ity surface,
and you have some conception of the
barrier which nature has placed before man."
As to the northern route, the Yellowstone and Natlontl Parks, which
are blended for eight hundred miles
across Montana, the olllclal folder of
the Yellowstone for 1919 thus describes lt:
It Is only by contact with the quiet
grandeur of her mountains, the enormous length of tier rivers, the potentialities of her soil, that one may be
made to feel the soul of Montana-
... In that immense stretch not
one foot of waste appears,  no desert,
dangers. The far flung range country feeding Its thousands of cattle,
horses and sheep, with the fertile valley farms called ranches."

'Montana" ln a book published In San

Casting   Vote   From Chairman
Is Required, However, To
Break Deadlock in Matter
At a recent meeting of the Creaton
Board of Trade, one ot thy matters
coming up for discussion was tlmt
of Creston joining up with the Associated Boards of Trade Of East Kootenay, This question has been hanging lire at Creston for two months or
so, in fact, ever alnci tht formation
of the Kast Kootenay organization
last May.
The report of the executive on the
matter favored alllliatioii after a very
thorough discussion, When a motion
to this effect was put to the meeting,
however, it resulted in a lio vote. A
casting vote being called for from the
chairman, who decided In favor of the
proposed altillutlon.
Among other matters or business
to come up at this meeting waa the
provision of water connections for the
stockyards there. A letter wus read
from the (.'. P, R. superintendent at
Cranbrook stating that after investigation It had been found that the
quantity of livestock shipped from
Creston did hol warrant the expense
of putting in u water service at the
corral]. He was also of the opinion
that lu view of the growth of the population of the Valley, the prospect was
for all the local cattle being needed
for home consumption.

Pinning a Motor Road
(Continued from Page Three)
Francisco this spring, concerning a
tour over the Yellowstone ln August,
"Poor Montana! Burned, scorched
to ashes from four summers of bad
drought and no rain in six mouths!
llio rivers and streams were dry as
bones. 'Don't stop here for water'
was the familiar sign. We met hundreds or families driving out, in old
prairie .schooners with all tlieir house-
liold furniture aud cattle. They had
tried to raise crops and wero literally
driven out. The children looked pinched and starved; the men and women wero the color of leather. • . .
. . Before we had covered four
hundred miles across this state our
faces were burned, our lips so dry and
cracked that they bled, und our eyes
nearly burned out of our heads. The
dust was from six to eight inches
deep and tho roads were mostly
through sand-"
Candidly 1 do not like tliis method
of drawing attention to the paradise,
comparatively speaking, awaiting the
tourist iu our Canadian prairie country, but certainly in the above we have
have a widt choice.
There is also the question of the
mountains and hazards, Scarcely anybody but hates climbing to dizzy
heights In a motor car. A representative, of the Motor Route Book Company of Los Angeles recently Indicated the advantages of the Pike's Peak
Ocean to Ocean Highway over the Lincoln. The former, he says, crosses
only one summit, aud that of 0,000
feet, while tiie Lincoln Highway "crossed seven different summits, some of
them attaining an altitude of 7,000
feet, and often the motorist ls slxt;
or seventy miles from the nearest
point at which help could he obtain
I have no personal corroboration of
thc foregoing, but I know that thc
King's International Highway crosses the Great Divide via the Crows
Xest Pass at a height of only 4,450
feet, and the only other summit Is that
of the Snoqiiolamle Pass nt a height
of 3,100 feet, and that the highway
follows the railroad closely and passes towns at very frequent intervals.
On my pathfinding tour here was
encountered a large mileage of "dry
weather" roads, roads which though
I was never delayed an hour, It would
be difficult to negotiate during rains.
I at once enquired as to this feature of
the older named roads to the south.
The aforementioned map of the A. A-
A. shows only four to five hundred
miles of "all weather'' roads on tlie
Lincoln Highway west of Chicago, and
no other road north of Texas as much
as that. On our side, I am prepared
to say that on the King's International
Highway west of the longitude of
Chicago there uro not less than one
thousand miles of fast, all weather
roads. Moreover the official map
indicates the Lincoln as entirely all-
weather from Chicago to New York,
which Is certainly not the case. I took
pains to Inspect tlie easterly two-
thirds of this Chicago-New York section early ln June und my notes made
on the spot tell of "dry weather"
stretches of the worst sort. Even In
dry weather they were torrible.
Looked at from a purely selfish
.point of view of my own physical
comfort I would much rather return
to New York or Montreal over the
Canadian route than any other. This
decision has of course some relation
to a difficulty wc shall have to face
later on, viz, the heavy tourist traffic
wearing out tlie roads.
Distil ncre
Taking New York or Montreal as
equal starting points, the total length
of "The King's International Highway" is 3370 miles M against the Lincoln Highway from New York to San
Prnnclsco 3325; Pike's Peak Oceun to
Ocean Highway, also Now York to
Sun Francisco, 8608; Yellowstone
Trail New York to Seattle, 3594;
Roosevelt    National    Highway,    Sun
(Continued from Page 1)
Francisco to Washington, 330S (to
New York, 3000; and by lho National
Parks Highway, from Now York to
Seattle, 3454.
It will be seen that the Canadian
routo te already the shortest transcontinental- When tho roud Is complete through British Columbia the
distance from Montreal to Vancouver
will be cut to ut the most 3225 miles.
These figures may or may not be Interesting, lu brief there can be Utile argument on the point Ten minutes study of the globe will prove that
ihe rotundity of the earth givts an lu*
iiiperable advantage to a routo going
through Canada; as indeed do nature
ind climate.
The final nr-Jbrnent which will probably bind thc bargain in hundreds of
cases in favor of our new road is the
alternative water route from the Soo
io Port William and Port Arthur or
Uuluth. This cun be followed conveniently with practically no more ex-
peuso than motoring .the distance,
aud affords a delightful sea voyage of
300 or 400 miles and cuts off 350 or
550 of the land journey. Thus today
the journey from Montreal to Vancouver enn be made with nbout 2800 miles motoring if taken by this route,
1850 in Canada and 050 In the United
CoiM-lushm and Appeal
At the Vancouver Automobile Club
there is available for one dollar a
book containing log and story account
of the pathlindtng tour,. A map indicates the exact location of the road.
At the moment it Is only pinned to
the map; anybody can take it off. But
tlie fact will remain that the Vancou-
er Automobile Association has made
the Initial effort by actual travel to es
tablish a Canadian motor road.
We are prepared for disagreement
and criticism, hut In this, as in the
project in general, and more especially In future advertising of "Tiie
King's International Highway," we
ask and advocate fair play. It will
be well to recall the message of Captain Smith from the bridge of the Titanic and "Be British!"

Hon. IC. D. Burrow, minister of agriculture at Victoria, accompanied by
deputy minister Warnock, are now
visiting various sections of tiie province in the interests of the work of
the department. They have spent
some time at Mission, und nt Vernon,
attending at the latter place the annual meeting of the Western Horticulturist!,', Entomologists' uud Plant
Pathologists' Association, which wus

use and the total horsepower, suggested such a change could be effected
at a cost of possibly one thousand dol-
lurs; tiiut the total cost to the city
would probably not exceed three thousand dollars. He predicted when tlie
company supplied power that the services of only one man would be required.
He stated that a continuous service
could bo relied upon ut nil times; thut
the sub-station would bo modern and
operated by au automatic system and
no building will be required.
Mr. Donald said that ut one time,
ufttr discussing lho question with
Hon. Dr. King, Mlnisteer or Public
Works at Victoria, his company did
havo designs on the plant here.
The situation at Fertile was ulinost
identical with the situation lu Crati-
hrouli, he said. A Ihroe-phase system was moro economical from every
point of view, and ail systems now being Installed were of tllfl six-cycle
three-phase style.
Mr. Donald said thu terms under
Which power would bo supplied to
Crnnbrook were: for the first .iO.OOO
kilowatt hours per month 2*& cents
secont .10,000 2U cents; next 20,000 2
cents; next 20,000 1% cents; and all
over 100,000 per month 1*% cents; with
a minimum charge of $10,000 a year
for the service. This minimum charge
would mean thut 400,000 kilowatt
hours service would be given during
the year, which should be ample for
the requirements of the city for some
Tho speaker was of tlie opinion
such an arrangement would mean eventually that Cranbrook would have
industries which would desire to tab
advantage of the low rate which could
he' given.
He said thai the power should be
kept separate from the lighting and
that the cos) ol changing motors is
stood by the company supplying power; the transformers und meters not
being affected hy the change in the
Mr. Donald offered, and the council accepted, to supply plans free of
cost covering such changes as are
necessary, and slated he would have
an expert from the Canadian Westing-
house Company come here and look
over the motor equipment of power
users and advise the city as to the exact cost of making the changes.
Going Into tho question of the pro
gross being milde lu getting their
power plant going, Mr. Donald said
the location of the first plant would
be about t*even miles from where the
Hull River empties into the Kootenay; that an open ilume could not be
used to advantage because of the ox
tremely cold weather In thnt section;
that a wood stave pipe line was to be
used, which Ihey knew from experience in operations elsewhere, where
cold affected the supply by freez-ups,
would maintain a continuous service
at ull times.
He scouted the idea advanced hy
some that, there was not sufficient
Mow of water in Bull Hlver to glvo
the power necessary und quoted gov
ernment statistics to contradict this
claim. They hope to get tlieir dam
completeed this fall and are at present doing preliminary work on the
site. /
At the close of his remarks, Mr.
Donald was advised by Mayor Genest
that thc council would be glad to receive a contract for consideration, and
this Mr. Donald snld would be forth-
coming within n few days at the outside, at leust ln time for consideration at the next regular meeting, but
that a contract of ten years would be
desired, and in this event the ratepayers would have to be given a say
in the mutter by the submission of the
same for ther ratification.
Mayor Genest thanked Mr. Donald
for thc information which he had given the council and also for tendering
his co-operation in giving engineering

away in automobiles to the i-**-ke Windermere Camp which had been set an
a rendezvous for all the guests* Here
they met. an ofiicial welcome (rom tho
representative men mentioned and al-
bo from tho citizens of tlie district
generally, gathered from far and near.
The club house of the Camp had
been very tastefully decorated with
bunting und In tlie interior was exhibited a collection of one of-the most
magnificent collections of big game
heads, trophies of tlie chase from the
nearby mountains, thai has ever been
seen ln tbis part. These comprised
some magnificent elk heads especially, and all manner of furs mounted
and unmounted, but at the present
prices for skins, rich beyond the I
dreams of avarlco. In other parts
wero seen mounted specimens of the
big gume such as deer, grizzly and
black bear, and goats. Over the road
leading to the camp had been erected
an evergreen arch bearing a motto be-
low the provincial arms, "Klaliowya
Tillicum," a Chinook expression mean-
Ing welcome or good day, or any such
meaning as that, companions friends,
chums, just as each might In turn interpret the words.
On another part of the grounds, hidden from sight through being in a depression In the grounds, was encamped and assembled a gathering of many
scores of Shuswap and Kootenay Indians from tlie nearby reserves.
These descendants of a noble, race
were all clad in tlieir finest of bead-
work costumes, and braves, klooch-
men, boys and girls were all mounted on their oayuses* Each one of the
number had a history all tlieir own, or
else had an ornamental costume that
well repaid the examination. Near
by were pitched their picturesque and
smoke begrimed teepees. At the outskirts of this miniature village were
packers With a train of horses nll
ready packed aud ready for Iho tlmo
honored departure for the mountain
Surrounding the club house woro
exhibits and samples also of tho produce of tho fields.
ln tbo short, time which was allowed tho guests hero they wero taken off
by tbo stewards and spent much of
their time as the spirit moved them,
in swimming in tho lake,-golfing, riding or visiting some of tbe nearby
farms. At the appointed hour they
all assembled to partake of refreshments nnd to witness the presentation
of prizes won by tho Indians having
the best native costumes- Tho judging lu this cuse was done by Mrs.
Dal ton C. Coleman, of Winnipeg, who
awarded tho honors to Louis N'anna,
a SI wash, winning the first, and Tat-
ley tlie second. To Mrs. Neas and
Mrs. .Martin San went the first and
second respectively as best of the
kloochnien; while Moses Isaacs won
the boys'.and Suzette Alpine won the
girls' prizes. All these awards were
presented in person by Lady Burnham
who spoke to each recipient a few
kind words of encouragement.
The ceremonies for the day closed
with the singing of "God Save tlie
King." after which the visitors were
escorted to their respective trains and
wished Godspeed as they departed lu
tho late afternoon on their journey
to tho west, going again via the north.

The Imperial Press Conference hold
at Ottawa has received a great deal
of attention, and naturally so. It was
hardly the epoch-making event, however, that some described It. From a
distance ft seemed to look very much
more Important than it wus close up.
As a pre.,,-"* conference, Indeed, it was
In some respects a kind of disappointment. There were few notable addresses during Hit sessions, though
there were a number of notable ones
at the attendant festivities.
John W, Dafoe, of the Manitoba Free
Press, mado possibly the most Important contribution to tlie proceedings,
standing up manfully for tho Canadian point of view, on the subject of
Imperial relations. Ho said that dependence was out of tho question, ami
ihat Canada from now on must be
considered an equal with tlie Motiier
Country. In plain but courageous
language he stated the position, and
was heartily applauded. If the delegates were looking for Canadian opinions, they did not, outside of Dafoe'e
remarks, get much of it at Ottawa.
There were ahout thirty Canadians In
attendance, but Dafoe was the only
one who had the courage to state the
Canadian viewpoint. The rest either
said nothing or merely re-echoe* tiie
opinions of those from overseas. It
is remarkable bow some of the native
born lose tlieir tongues in the presence
of a lord or a duke- It did not seem
to occur to tlie average Canadian delegate that if be were to be accepted
on a basis of equality he should be ex-
pected to take an equal part In the
discussion. In Imperial matters, to
l>e merely a sounding board for overseas matters Is tlie very tiling that
lie people of tills country do not
want. Incidentally, to hear the Duke
of Devonshire say "My lords and gentlemen" was to he expected, for he
could not very well address those of
.his rank in any other way; but to
have a Canuck say this Is a little too
A great deal has been said on the desirability of co-operate action on the
part of the press of the Empire; but
the discussion on matters ot business
soon brought out the fuel that the problems of the press In the British Isles,
Australia or Xew Zealand were not
those of the press of Canada. In this
country newsprint at H\*i cents Is considered high, but it comes as high as
22 cents ln the Antipodes. The way
some   of   the   Australian publishers
criticised tlie Canadian newsprint ma-
kers for prices was rather startling.
They also had their own opinions ab-
nit the size of Canadian dallies- In
itnmistakeable language they said it
was no use uttering a lot of fine talk
about Imperial co-operation and then
"soaking" them for paper- There was
no convincing them that the state of
affairs could nut be changed. The
trouble is tiiat the talk of imperial
partnership Ims hvvn carried to such
lengths Hint It has given rise to expectations that cannot be met.
lu thu matter of cable services, the
problems or the press lu the Antipodes
are not those of the press of Canada

Little Fault Can be Found on
the Whole With ClasH of
Entertainment -Nit-en
The closing of ttie Chautauqua program last Saturday brought to an end
what many are disposed to consider
the beet Chautauqua Cranbrook has
yet enjoyed. Certainly it seems to
have been Uie most successful In
point of finances* attendance and Interest generally. ,
From an intellectual bill of fare
presenting such a vavlcty of food for
thought it difficult to pick out any par*
tlcular numbers aud designate them
as the outstanding items. It seems
generally agreed, however, that the
play presented on Thursday evening
by the New York Kelghley Players, "It
Pays to Advertise," perhaps represented the class of entertainment holding tl e most universal appeal. Tlie
tent was packed, there not being sufficient seating accommodation for everyone- The amusing play was very
cleverly presented, and the company
waB accorded a very warm recption,
which they quite properly deserved-
On the lecture program there was
certainly enough to satisfy the desire for something "meaty." Por sheer
eloquence, coupled with a very apparent knowledge of his subject, and
that a subject which is of considerable concern to Canadians generally
■—"Some Political Problems Pacing
John Bull and Uncle Sam" —Captain
Norman Imrle probably made the
strongest appeal.
Along quite defferent lines was the
lecture cf Senator C. H. Poote, of New
Zealand, who spoke on "Social Redemption," and especially outlined the
steps his country has taken In order
to meet the changing conditions of
life the last decade has brought about.
He showed how notwithstanding Its
Isolation geographically from what
has been recognized as the centre of
the world's civilization. New Zealand
has,put upon Its statute books some of
the most progressive legislation along
social lines of any country. Their
wide awake policy in the development
of natural resources has enabled them
to avoid many of the pitfalls which
other nations have met. Mr. Poole
is a politician in his own country, but
he was big enough (metaphorically aa
well as physically) to put politics out
of his address here, and it was all the
more Informative and easy ot assimilation on account of it-
Concerning Dr. Qeorge Adam there
is some room for difference of opinion. It was expected he would give
an address on Lloyd Qeorge, but he
was prevailed on at the last to speak
instead on Sir Harry Lauder, He
had the advantage of an intimate
friendship with this well known com'
edlan, and showed how In his own way
Lauder had contributed hit "bit" to
the allied cause. Having known the
Scotch singer only by the impression
his singing has made, it was Interesting to hear of the more serious side
of his life, presenting, It must be admitted, some admirable traits. But
the people went to hear nbout Lloyd
George, and there wns some justifiable
criticism of Dr. Adam's lecture oo
otlier grounds than his alternate subject,
Tom Skeyhlll, Ansae poet and lecturer, got a great reception when he
appeared on Priday evening- He
gave on Interesting llttlo prelude on
his first experiences with what he
aptly termed tlie American "slanguage," devoting the more serious part
of tils lecture to "The New Klisabcth-
aiiB-" This term he applies to a band
of twenty young poets of this age, In
whose writings, he said, the golden
age of Queen Elizabeth could be seen
revived again- Of this score of young
men of promlHo sixteen laid down their
lives In the war all having answered
the call to arras without hesitation-
He dwelt more particularly with four
of those who "went west," Rupert
Brooke, England; Alan Seager and
Joyce Kilmer, United States; and John
McCrae, of Montreal, whose Immortal
•'In Flanders' Fields'' has become bo
well known all through the land. Mr.
Skeyhlll In a bold and fearless way
set out to smash the cherished idols
so many have held dear in Tennyson's
-'Charge of the Light Brigade," and
Byron's "Eve of Waterloo," by denouncing the emphasis they place on
the spectacular glory of war In addition to quoting from tht writings

The musical programs on the Chautauqua schedule were of a high order,
and met with much appreciation from
the big audiences. On Wednesday
the Zedeler Symphonic gave two line
concerts, and with them was Miss
Porlune, who provided the llneet vocal solos heard on the entire .program,
Her rendering of "I Hear You Calling Me" was a treat that will be long
remembered. Other outstanding Items on the Zedeler program were

"Pomp and Circumstance," selection
