Board of Trade Are Hosts
at Banquet Friday
The local Board of Trade engineered another very successful function
last Friday evening, when they tendered a banquet to the visiting members of the American and Canadian
Mining Institutes, who were here to
continue their sessions, which opened
at Spokane on the Wednesday before.
One hundred and twenty-three names
went on the register of those who
attended the dinner, and it is estimated that of these between sixty and
seventy were visitors who had come
with the party of mining men. The
list of visitors was substantially as
published in the Herald last week,
with one or two variations made at
the last.
The Union Jack and the Stars and
Stripes were prominently displayed
on the platform of the K.P. Hall,
where the function was held, emphasising the international nature of the
function. The White Lunch excelled
itself in the banquet arrangements,
the appointments being of the fin-
eat and anticipating just what was
required to satisfy the most exacting.
Good Mutioal Program
While the banquet was in progress,
music was provided by Mrs. F. M.
MacPherson, who both sang and played, and during the program of
speeches following the dinner, musical numbers were given by Mrs. McDonald, Mr. Les Dwelley (Lumber-
ton), Mrs. Park, and Mr. Meldrum,
of Lethbridge, all of whom were well
received ond compelled to respond to
encores, Messrs. I. McNaughton and
Alan Graham also assisted with the
accompaniments. The Rotarians gave
the company their "Kootenay Song"
during the evening, and some choruses helped to stimulate the genial atmosphere of the evening, while Col.
Leckie proved himself a vocalist as
wall as a soldier by rendering a particularly touching version of "Allou-
ette," which touched the spot just
like the "Brigadier," rendered very
feelingly by Mr. Bruce Ritchie and
the company.
An interesting and appropriate exhibit on display was thc portable case
of mineral samples of East Kootenay
ores, which, made a very interesting
showing. This is a collection which
W. S. Santo has heen instrumental in
gathering together.
Welcomed   lo   Cranbrook
W. H. Wilson, chairman of the
Board of Trade, called the meeting
to order, and announced a short program of speeches. He welcomed the
visitors to the city, and assured them
that/Cranbrook wns vitally interested
In mining, anil proud of the Sullivan
Mine, which they were to visit the
next day.
Mayor T. M. Roberta was glad to
be able to welcome the visitors also,
and faceously extended to them the
freedom of the city. lie felt that
their visit here would result in a
better knowledge heing gained of the
immense resources with which nature
had endowed this district.
Visitors  Appro-rial*  Hospitality
C. A. Banks, president of the B.C.
branch of the Institute, nnd vice-
president of the Canadian Institute
of Mining nnd Metallurgy, replied to
the words of welcome, and was very
pleased to find such apparent prosperity. The future of Crnnbrook was
assured with the Sullivan Mine nt
the door, and he humorously wished
"many more Sulllvans" for the place.
He felt mining was still in Its infancy, and that it hnd a great future in
L. K. Armstrong, of Spokone, was
received with much enthusiasm by the
company, and as the secretary of thc
north-west branch of the American
Mining Institute, had a great deal to
do with the arrangements for the
meetings. He brought greetings
from the American Institute, and on
behalf of thc mining industry he saw
prosperity coming, and felt there was
no other activity that offered the
recompense for the expenditure of
effort and energy, properly directed,
A. O. Langley, district mining engineer, made announcements of the
plan for the excursion to be made to
Tha Coed Old Times
Col. J. E. Leckie, of Vancouver, a
veteran In the mining game, spoke
interestingly of the early and strcn-

Thc death took place on Monduy,
at the hospital here, of Millard Staples, of Yahk, who has been engaged
In tho camps for many years, as a
cook there. He was taken on Sunday
last with a paralytic stroke, and from
this he failed to rally, though brought
to the hospital here as soon as possible. He was ahout 03 years of age,
and had no relatives in this vicinity.
The funeral is to be held on Thursday, in this city, and will be conducted by Rev. Bryce Wallace, United
Church pastor.
The death took place on Saturday
last, of John Joseph Brennan, who
has for many years been engaged in
ranching in the vicinity of this city.
For the past two or three months he
has not been in good health, suffering
from heart attacks, and during the
past two months haa been receiving
treatment at the hospital.
After coming to this district the
late Mr. Brennan first took up
ranching on the flat north of the city.
Later he moved to Westport, where
he had a place for some years. Returning to this city he went to a place
east of the Lumberton road, removing some years ago to the place
near the South Ward school, where
the family has since resided. Deceased is survived by a widow and
family of four, three sons and a
daughter, the eldest of the family,
Peter, having just completed his high
school course, and now being with
the C.P.R. The funeral took place

Provincial government tax
rears, some of them outstanding
since the early days of the war, are
being cleaned up systematically by
tax sales shortly to be held all over
the province. When these are complete, the province will be almost
clear of all old arrears on land and
will be able to start collections
afresh. The tax sale for the Cranbrook district will be held on November  10th.
The sales represent a decisive effort to deal with the problem of land
reversion which was caused by the
break in the land boom of 1911 and
111 12, nnd by the depression of the
war years. A great part of the land
which is going under the hammer now
as held by speculators who bought
before the wnr- At that time most
of British Columbia was taking a
fling at thr game of real estate gambling.
In the case of all men who served
Canadian armies taxes were not
collected during the war. After the
nd of hostilities the provincial authorities dealt leniently with returned
men, in order to help them keep their
holdings. All were given thc chance
to pay off accumulated tax arrears
a five-year installment scheme.
This year thc taxation department
tlecided it was time to clear up the
■invars which had accumulated in
this way. The lands of men who had
decided not to take advantage of the
installment plan and who were willing to lose their property have bean
put into tax sales in all districts.
lYactically no occupied land has
been sold in this clearing-up process.
In no cases have settlers or farmers
lost their farms. A large proportion
of the land sold was held purely for
speculative purposes and was nm-
producing. It was worth little or nothing to the government. By taking
it over, however, the taxation department is clearing up its accounts
and writing off the old arrears.
Rumblings of tin* approaching civic
elections ure already being heard in
different quarters, and it does not
seem too early to predict that there
is likely to be more interest than
usual shown this year at that tini
A contender for the mayoralty has
appeared in the person of W. P. Cameron, who in response to muny requests from friends and supporters,
has consented to let his name go up.
He has had plenty of civic experience, having already served as mayo *
and alderman for a number of years.
Messrs. A. J. Balment und A. C. Bowness have also been pressed to allow
their names to go up for the city
council, and will in nil likelihood be
found in the running in January.
At this time it would appear that the
carrying out of the program of roa.)
improvements in the city this year
wilt be one of the lively topics of
controversy at election time.
Another matter which may be
brought to the notice of the ratepayers at that time is thc necessity of
making an extension to the high
school facilities. The present building, though seven rooms have been
crowded into it, with un enrolment
of about a hundred and eighty, is
totally inadequate to receive the extra class which it is foreseen will be
required next yenr, and the school
board may decide to put the matter
up to the ratepayers lo indicate whether they are in favor of an entirely
new building, or nn addition to the
present one if that is possible. It
seems hardly possible .that a bylaw
could be put at the civic elections
without the situation being more
fully understood by tho ratepayers,

returned on Tuesday evening after
the trip of twenty-five hundred miles.
During their stay ut Prime Rupert,
the boys were active with the guns,
and as a result have to their credit,
besides numerous birds, etc., a moose
and two bears. They brought back
with them thc head of the moose and
also some of the benr meat, The boys
were highly delighted with their trip
and it will not be surprising if the
Prince Rupert country claims them us
future residents.
Mrs. Taylor, who hus been visiting
for the summer at Prince Rupert,
where her husband is engaged in business, returned with the boys, also
highly  delighted  with her  trip.
i Horse, He recalled his last visit here
to recruit for the South African War,
and told of prospects on Wild Horse
where $300,000.00 had been taken
out, and just as easily thrown away.
"Those were the days," he humorously said. Col. Leckie said that the
Spokane meeting had been a real
success, and the gatherings made for
spirit of "entente cordiale," which
was so desirable.
Dean Roberts, of the University of
Seattle, also spoke briefly in appreciation of the hospitality shown the
visitors, both at Spokane and here.
Following the meeting, the tables
were cleared, and at a session of the
institutes papers on mining practice
at the Sullivan Mine and Concentra

The class of the Central Public
School thnt is studying fire prevention has entered into a new and novel
essay contest for a gold medal offered by Mr. T. M. Roberts on behalf
of the Hartford Fire Insurance Company. This is part of a great national contest being held In the public
schools all over the country.
As a part of the school work the
students write essays on "How the
Principles of Fire Prevention Have
Been Applied in My On Home,"
In telling about tbe essay contest
Mr. Roberts said: "The reul purpose
of fire insurance is something more
than mere selling of policies and the
paying uf losses, hooked at broadly
the Hartford and its local agents are
interested in anything that will make
the country safer und prevent the
terrific loss from fire—most of which
is truly unnecessary and easily preventable. Thut is why the Hartford
and its agents are always looking for
ways to teach sound principles of
fire prevention. And, too, there is,
relatively, as much need for the study
of fire prevention in homes as in the
big industrial plants and mercantile
"So it is natural that the public
school should bc considered the best
and most logical place for the teach'
ing of fire prevention. Get these
boys and girls of ours into habits of
carefulness during their school days,
and later in life they will practice
practical fire prevention in their
homes and with whatever property
they may own or control.
"So this medal is offered to stimu
late their efforts nnd make them
think. The subject of the essays is

Mining   and    Concentrating
Practices at Kimberley
Are Fully Detailed
On Friday evening of lust week u
session of the Americun unit Canudiun
Mining Institutes was held ut the
K. P. Hall, following the banquet
given the visitors by the board of
trade.    Mr.   C.   A.   Batiks,   of  Van

consisted of two papers explaining
mining practices employed by the
Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
at the Sullivan Mine, and nlso the

staff. It went very fully into the
history of the Sullivan mine, and
followed its progress from the time
of its location in 18f>2 by Put Sullivan und his associates, including at
that time Jas. Cronin, who later withdrew tn develop the St. Kugene, ut
Moyie, right down to tho present
time when its output hus reached
fabulous figures. After u few years
of comparative surface scratching,
the claims were bonded in 189Q, and
a little development went on for
three yeurs, the railway coming in
to Kimberley in 1898 assisting in the
larly shipments of ore to the smelters at Nelson and Trail. In 1903
the smelter ut Marysville wus constructed, and ran for about four
yeurs, treuting about 75,000 tons of
ore before the complex ores began
to create problems which perhaps
limited finances did not ullow to Iw
attacked as vigorously as they might
havo been. After various re-organizations the mine finally passed into
the hands of the Fort Steele Mining
& Smelting Co., control in which
went to the Federul interests of the
United States. In 1909-10 the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. became interested in the property, und
when they finally took up the option on the mine underground development on a larger scale took
place, and the metallurgical problems the orts presented were dealt
with seriously. Shipments gradually

largest slnppin ; lead mine in Canada,
and by 1025 had assumed worldwide supremacy as the largest single

Presented   at  Native  Sons'
Meeting on Wednesday
Wednesday evening the Cranbrook
Assembly, No. 22, Native Sons of
Canada, held open night, being at
home to their friends tn honor of the
junior lacrosse boys, whom they hnd
us their principal guests. Following
the regular meeting of the Assembly,
there were about eighty present when
chairman Dr. Rutledge opened the
meeting by announcing the singing of
O Canada. Mrs. Stewart Mcintosh
then favored with a pleasing vocal
solo, "Wc Never Miss the Sunshine,"
which was heartily received.
Objects   of   Trophy
Having explained the object of
the meeting, the chairman intimated
that it had been a great pleasure for
the Native Sons to donate the cup
und medals for the encouragement of
uch a clean amateur sport as lacrosse. To his mimi it was, and always would be, an amateur gume, as
it did not lend itself to the requirements of professionalism. After
tracing its origin to the aborigines,
he showed that as youth, courage,
endurance and self-control were
qualities which went to make up n
good player, it was necessnry that
their habits be good, in order thut
they might continue to participate
in the games. He also showed the
prominent part that B.C. had played
in supplying the champion teams of
the country. He concluded by stilting
thut much credit was due Mr. Art
Wallace) for the time und energy thut
he hud spent in the training of the
boys, and trusted thnt he would continue his efforts.
He then culled upon Jim McFarlane to come forward, complimenting
him, us captain of the victorious Tigers, on his success in the winning of
the trophy.
"Jim," in a brief speech of acknowledgement, thanked the Native
Daughters and Native Sons for the
interest which they had taken in
them, he also thanked Mr. Art Wal-
.ace for the great interest shown,
claiming that without his effort lacrosse would have been dead in this
part of the west. He felt it would
be impossible for him to repay him
for his kindness.

also  in  attendance.
Following the ceremony, when congratulations hnd been duly extended,
the company repaired to the dining
room, where a buffet lunch was served, a four tier wedding cake ornamenting the table as a strikingly appropriate centrepiece. The happy
couple boarded the westbound train
a little later, to embark on a honeymoon trip, the bride wearing a travelling dress of black satin trimmed
with white, with a saxe-blue hat and
coat to match. There were many
evidences of the popularity of the
young couple as they embarked on
their trip, and further manifestations
of a similar friendly nature were
waiting for them at Lumberton.
When they return to take up residence on Armstrong Avenue, after a
short stay at the coast cities, they
will have with them the best wishes
of a veritable host of friends for a
long and continually happy married
life. The numerous gifts which thej
have received, and the occasions upon which the bride was showered by
her friends prior to the wedding are
still further evidence that the young
couple embark upon their matrimonial career with a goodly measure of
the  friendships  which  are priceless.

the largest group uf visitors thnt has
ever gone over the great mine, ull

Supt K. G. Montgomery and William Lindsay took charge of the
guests, and with some assistants, conducted them through the mine, thoroughly explaining every step of interest in the operations. Not a
thing was missed—along the drifts,
up the chutes, climbing over the
rocks here, up a ladder there, down
and around the enormous crowd were
conducted, just as if it was a daily
performance. While all were more
or less acquainted with the Consolidated Co. and the Sullivan mine, the
trip of inspection was an eye-opener
to most of them. Its magnitude
dwarfed the conception that most of
them had—its mammoth underground cathedrals, its apparently engulfing chutes, with ore ready on all
sides to enter Its portals, and the
realization that the immediate ore
body on which they stood carried
down for immeasurable depths, made
other mines that they had Been fade

Arthur Hemming, of Toron-
is among the most famous
of   resident   Canadian  writers,   .since
liis "Urania of the Forest" appeared,

tfful drawings of the Northland, by
Khe author.    Sume of his more recent  books nn- "Spirit  River" nnd
"The Living Forest.     Mr. Hemming
s a man of medium height and Intermediate  nue.    His  face   is  fresh
and ruddy, like that of a man who
lias spent  most of his  life  out-of-
doors; but Its suggestion of youth is
contradicted   by   his   close-cropped
head  of silver hair.    He is a native
i.f Hamilton, hut I fancy he is of Irish
extraction.    Hia manner of speaking
is slow, gentle, ensy, without much
variation   and   yet   not   monotonous.
His avowed aim is toward simplicity
tylo and language.   He often rewrites  his  entire  novel  as  much  as
six  or seven  times.    This  is  by  no
means  unusual  with  authors,  but  it
is somewhat unusual for them to confess to ii.    .Mi*. Hemming was one of
a large family, and it is very interesting to hear him tell of the struggles
liis mother had in bringing them up.
He is unmarried, and all his heroine-
worship   is   lavished   on   his   mother,
to   whom   he  attributes  his  success.
She   it  was,  and  sho  only,  who  encouraged bis curly elforts in art, and
made it possible for him to keep to
the arduous and stony path that led
at last to fame.
A   Dual   Personality
Living in Victoria there is a lady,
incidentally an author, who has probably   aroused   more   interest   by  her
/personality than any other individual
in Canada.    This is Mrs. Adam Beck,
an English lady who has spent a good
jdeal of time in the Orient.    She uf-
fects all the customs of thc far east,
keeps  a  stall"  of  Oriental   servants,
nd goes ahout heavily veiled.    It is
aid lhat she has embraced the Bud-
hi.st. faith.   She has plenty of money
to carry out any ell'ect she wishes,
she surrounds herself with an air
of mystery that has done more, some
people -say, to make ber famous than
her   work,   although   personally,   I
think her work is well-written, particularly   if  you  like   that  kind   of
She claims to have two distinct personalities, whom she designates as E.
Harrington and I.. Adams Beck. Under the name of E. Barrington she
writes historical novels, and you may
see that name in large letters in almost, any Cosmopolitan that you pick
up. Tbe story running nt present,
I believe, is "the Necklace of Marie

Antoinette." Hor "The Divine Lady"
is a story of Admiral Nelson anil his
Qnamorata. In her "Glorious Appol-
lo" some people think she gives Lord
Byron too hard a rating.
She grants an audience to very
few, even of distinguished visitors,
ami many people in Victorin havo
never seen more of her countenance
than her dark, somewhat Oriental
eyes, peeping over the rim of her
haremesque veil. We understood,
therefore, thut we were greatly hon-
oicd by having: her join us nt the
garden-party which iris Honor Lieut.-
Gov. Bruce so kindly tendered us, and
during the afternoon she quite held
second' court. Sho was not veiled
upon this occasion, and to the casual
eye wns by no means distinguished-
looking, her occidental dress being
rather lucking in style and smnrtness.
What we saw was a tall, rather large
woman, who looked about fifty, und
wns in reality seventy years of age.
Her speaking voice is not nt all in
keeping with her rather masculine
appearance, It is low and soft and
almost timid. She is full of n gentle,
feminine charm lhal is particularly
appealing to thc so-called sterner sex.
Slie keeps her separate identities
carefully distinct, and yel she cun
apparently change from one to the
other ut will, Sin* will make a state
ment, closely followed by the explanation thut "that is E Harrington
peaking." Perhaps in the next
breath she will give voice to another
sentiment and add: "That is L, Adams Heck speaking." Or she might
say: "Both E; Barrington and L. Adams Beck would be very pleased to
meet so-and-so." It would appear
that she conceives of her dual personalities as existing not only distinctly bul side by side and capable
of possessing tiie ego almost simul
taneoUBly. Needless to say this if
very different from most cases of
dual personality.
_^ Well Entertained _^
In Victorin we had a wonderful
time as the guests of Mr, and Mrs.
Butchart; and .Airs. Tree showed us
over the Archives Dept. Her special
filing system received great praise
from Dr. Locke, head librarian of
In the evening, after  Hon.  Randolph  Bruce's  garden-fete,   a   little
party of six of us went down in the
Crystal   Gardens.    Mrs.   Bjornsfeldt
acted us hostess and took us in her
The others of the  party  were
Mrs. Welter, of Toronto (whose book
you see here); Mr. Robert Watson,
Dr.  Lionel  Stevenson,   Prof.  Watson
Kirkconnel,  and   myself.    After wc
had swam and danced and promenaded to our heart's content, Mr. Watson
got us some tea, and over "the cup
that   cheers"   we   induced  some   of
these   famous   folk  to  tell   us about
each  other's  accomplishments.     For
it is useless to ask them to tell about
their own.    They will reply:  "I've
done just perfectly nothing!" "Buti
you say "I've read that and that and
the other of your books!"    They will
most likely begin to apologize for the
luck in their work.    They are incurably modest, these authors, owing to
the breadth of their vision.   They can
see  nothing  except   the  tremendous
heights  yet   to  be  scaled,  and   the
appalling  discrepancy  between  their
achievement and their idenl.
A   Versatile   Author
In this way we found that Dr. Kirk-
connell, author of "Prairie Perspectives," just read, took his post-grad,
degrees at Oxford, and Is the author
of several books, one of which, "In
ternational   Aspects   of   Unemploy
ment," has  been  very  favorably re
ceived  by the critics of  five coun
tries.   In the nine months immediate
ly preceding the convention, he translated poems from forty different languages, nnd put their Knglish equivalents into poetry. The book thus compiled is in the hands of his publishers
and will be brought out next spring,
Dr.    Kirkconnel   is   a   tall,   slender
gentleman of Celtic type, and is a
native of Lindsay, Ont.
, One of the most prominent figures
nt the convention, as he is one of the
best known throughout Canada, was
the   genial   treasurer,   Mr.   Robert
Watson,  of  Winnipeg.    We  always
say the Scotch are lacking in humor.
We ought rather to say that their
national wit is concentrated in spots,
because if you find a witty Scotchman he is the most humorous person
in the world.    Robert Watson is one
of those rare souls.    He is head publicity agent for the Hudson's Bay Co.,
and in addition has published many
famous novels, both here and in the
Old Country.    He  is getting out a
very interesting one about the Arctic
this year.   He writes splendid poetry
as  well,   as  this   little   lyric   called
"Stanley  Park,"  will  testify:
Stanley Park,  Vancouver
Giant me this, that when I die,
In the forest I may lie,
Canopied by trees and sky,'
Near the ceaseless sea,
Where the ships go sailing hy;
Souls of men set free.
Where the sunshine filters down
Through  the lanes of green and
Wind-swept   rain,   when   heavens
Bathe the thirsting mold;
Artist's dream and  poet's crown,
Grey, and green und gold.
When* the weaver-elves ut night
Softly flit through filmy light,
Spinning  cobwebs,  silver-white
O'er the drowsing plains,
And the full-orbed moon in flight
Trails her spectral lines.
All I ask is when I die
In the forest glade to lie,
Canopied by trees and sky,
Near   tlie  ceuBeless  seo,
Where the ships go sailing by,
Rest the dust of me.
Mr. Watson says he spends only
two hours a day in strictly creative
work, and that no one can spend
more without suffering in health. If
he is tempted to continue over this
time his wife comes to his rescue,
even threatening him with the stove
poker if need be to make him quit,
As his wife is both beautiful and red-
haired, I feel sure she has some influence with him.

Among tho more recent marine on-!
gineering activities of Canadian Vickers, Ltd., is the construction, at
their Maison-neuve shipbuilding
plant, of a ferry barge for the transfer of railway cars across Kootenay
Lake, British Columbia. The first
section of the steel craft will be moV-.
d westward early next week, the
others leaving at intervals later.
This ferry, which  was laid down
to the order of tho Canadian Pacific
railwuy Company, is an  interesting
piece of construction as there is "no
navigable  connection    between    the
shipyard  and  the   British   Columbiu
lake.    Two erections   are   therefore
necessary, one heing at the plant and
the other close to the site of its operation, after the sections have been
hauled the 2,000 miles  from  Montreal,    ln  the first erection, at the
plant, the various pans are numbered
with a view to facilitating anil expediting its reconstruction at the lakeside destination.    Following this preliminary  erection   and   marking' tin;
whole is knocked down for shipment.
Tho craft is 230 feet long, -111 feet
wide and eight feet six inches deep,
and, with its four main longtitudiual
trusses nnd transverse webs at each
of the ten watertight bulkheads, is'
such that three sets of rails can be]
carried on deck, these accommodating fifteen standard cars.    Conncc-'
tion with thc shore will be mnde by
means of a  special  apron arrangement on the bow.    No means of propulsion or steering has been installed
on the ferry, its location bcing provided by tugs.
The Canadian Pacific Railway will
haul the various sections from Montreal to Kootenay Lake, where they:
will be re-assembled, It is expected
that the car ferry will he placed in
operation between Kootenay Landing, nt the south end of thc lake, und
Proctor, about 18 miles from Nelson.
Coast papers last week reported
the death on October 9th, of William
A. Rollins, formerly of this city, who
died after suffering for many years
from the effects of wounds he received in the head during the war
years. The late Mr. Rollins lived in
Crnnbrook for mnny years along with
his brother, Mr. Victor Rollins, both
engaging in the hotel business. W.Rollins conducted the former Royal
Hotel here, which in later years became the headquarters for the G. W.
V. A., while Victor Rollins was a
partner of the late George Hogarth
at the Crunbrook Hotel. The late
Mr. Rollins conducted the Royal Hotel after the departure of its owner,
W. B. Van Decar, up until the time
he enlisted early in the war. He was
a native of Lukin, Ont., where he
wns born forty-five years ago, and
came to Cranbrook in 19011. He took
a prominent part in all sport events
here, and was also active in other
local spheres. He was well liked in
Cranbrook, and many of his old
friends regretted to learn of his death.
His wife and three children survive
him in Vancouver, as well as two
brothers, while a third, a sister and
his mother reside in the east. The
funeral took place on October 12th,
at Vancouver.

The sale of

(J^HE Government Control of beer sales to the
\J people  of  British   Columbia  in  licensed
premises has been vindicated by tlie orderly
manner in which these premises arc conducted.
These quiet nnd comfortable establishments
prove that the 0|>en and above-board sale-of
pure beer has in great measure ended the evils
attending the illicit sale of strong drink. They
have proved that the self respect anil good
behavior of the people of British Columbia are.
more to be depended oil than the opinions of
those who wish to prevent the people from
having any beer at all.
You may find citizens enjoying a healthful and
invigorating glass of beer in the quiet and case
that the well-to-do have in tlieir clubs. Licensed
premises in lbe colder winter months are more
than ever the working mini's club, where ho finds
the company and comfort Hint is his right.
The supervision and regulal ion of licensed premises
by the Governmenl is a guarantee that the
excellent conditions under which beer is sold shall
continue. Efficient Government Inspectors arc not
only that such licensed premises nre operated in a
strictly sanitary manner, They look for a high
standard of conduct.
The purity nnd wholcsomcncss of all beers
served—supplied by the Amalgamated Brew-
erics of British Columbia—is guaranteed by
the frequent and striel analyses to which they
are subjected by the Government. In the

member of the Sullivan staff, he felt
i competent to comment upon the wonderful Achievement and many adver.
sitics overcome by thc company in
attaining its present position. With
the petering out of Moyie, the necessity of finding of other mines
pressed itself upon them, apparently
Sullivan was the next hope. The ore
of the Sullivan had been a difficult
one to smelt directly, all the zinc
contained counting heavily against
it. Prom the conditions then to the
present state, when lead concentrates are 68 v* of lead are being
shipped, constituted a big step .md
had only been possible through the
development and co-operation of :he
different staffs of the com pan v.
While they had some good mine;, in
Couer d'Alene, of which they vere
proud, there was, of course, nothing
like it over there. He complimented
the company on the great work which
was being done at tht' Kimberley mill.
Wonderful Growth
Superintendent Montgomery, in
his usual pleasant manner stated that
if it were not for the co-operation
of the stalf, the success re fen mi lu
could  not have  been  attained.

Bank of Montreal, referred tu a.-,

interesting speech referred to the
Wonderful growth which had taken
place in the town since hia arrival
six years ago. From a town of three
hundred it hud grown to four thousand. He extended to the delegates
the freedom of th town and referred
to the co-operation and kindly help
of the company in all matters pertaining to  municipal welfare.
Mr. Moore, representing the president of the American Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy, brought
greetings from across the line, claiming it a pleasure for him to do so.
He referred to the remarkable mine
which they had just seen and had
never seen hospitality so graciously
and sensibly dispensed. He referred
to the calling of the miners as one
of great dignity, and one which, demanded respect and in 'tyrrj cp|lei|
for Be|f-reapect, He claimed that ne
would carry away with him the memory of a great prospect ably mined.
Before concluding the midday function, the chairman called on Mr, Cook
In whose honor he called upon the
guests to drink a hearty toast. Mr.
Cook, taken by surprise, wax forced
to take his place on one of the tables
and, to the cheering crowd, stated
.that he considered that it wai an honor for him to put up a luncheon to
such a delegation and felt that the
way to a man's heart is through his
stomach, and the way to a cook's
heart is through the other fellow's

the way the richness of the ore body
was evident hut it was possibly the
big hole in the north working known
as S1H that "got" most of them.
Here many of them stood and examined tho folding of lead, zinc and
iron ores, all as clearly defined ns
if they had been drawn in colors.
So bright was its appearance, that
one said it looked like a jewelry
shop. It was this particular part
of the workings that Mr. Lindsay
stated had produced on an average
7,000 tons per month for two and
one half years. Ampng tJn> mafjy
other items of interest were the huge
drag scraper, which, operated by
cable, pulled from two to three tons
to the chute at a time; the fast-working little scraper bucket, that loaded
the ore into the mine cars; the efficient manner in which the drills
were operated; and the evidence on
every hand that the matter of getting
out the ore was of a secondary importance to the safety of the workman. Also of interest was the large
underground sub-station into which
the high voltage line come in, in
about  a  two-inch  cable  through   a
diamond drill hole from tht* surface
about OHO feet above, One of the
piost interesting sights was the view
obtained by some of the leaders on
the trip through the mines, when,
having ascended a considerable distance up several ladders, they could
Oook bacjk upon the small sea of
lights on the caps of those waiting
in the vault-like opening below,
while to these below the trailing of
the lights up over the rocks reminded theme of northern experiences or
pictures they had seen.

Mr, Archibald, superintendent of
mines, for the company, suitably responded, He regretted the absence
of the general manager, S. G. Blaylock, to whom he attributed more than
any one else, the credit for tht* position which the C. M. & S. Co., and
particularly the Sullivan mine, had
attained. He referred to the complex ores which they hod encountered,
and the poor reception which the firsl
ore from Sullivan Mine received al

RECENTLY there took place tlie amalgamation
under the trade name of the Canada Biscuit
Co., Ltd., of the following well-established manufacturers and distributors of biscuits and confectionery
and   allied   products:   McCormick   Manufacturing
Company, l.im
on, Ontario; Paulin-Cham-
bers Company, Limited. Winnipeg, Manitoba; J. A.
Marvcti, Limited. Mom-ton, New Brunswick; Mon
treal Biscuit Company, Limited, Montreal, Quebec;
North West Mill and Feed Company Limited, Edmonton, Alberta; North Wesl lliscuit Company,
Limited. Edmonton, Alberta; D. S. I'erriu & Company, Limited. London, Ontario.
With this amalgamation an accomplished fact
one wonders whether the trusl octopus is to lay
hold on Canada as it endeavored to do in the United
States, and whether we shall he in a position to
successfully free ourselves from  it.
In connection with this recent business transaction and the mure recent issuing of an order by.
the State of Maryland for the dissolutloh of the
two-million-dollar bread trusl the following article
from The Nation will doubtless he of interest:
"Men and women will dl Ef ol' as to the usefulness
of trusts and whether we should or should not oppose
the tendency to enormous combimftlons, but as long as
our laws ure what thej are everyone must rejoice that
the Ciivernmunt has acted promptly and well In bringing
jnhout tho consent ilecree under which the two-blllion-
dollar bread trust is ordered to dissolve within thirty-
days and to surrender its charter to the State of Maryland. This combination was meant to he much more than
u bread trust. Had il been allowed I" go unchallenged it
would, according t" tho statements of its organizers, hnve
gone beyond the making of bread Into tho field ut milk,

grappled with, und it is to the credit of the Qovernment
thut it refused for one moment to be fooled by those
terms of the charter under which it wns represented as

ure, of course, aware that consent decrees hnve not
always worked in the past to tlie benefit of the public;
the dissolution of the Standard Oil into its component
pnrts remains a monument to tlie difficulty the Government encounters when il tries to check these combinations. But we repeat that as long as it is the policy of
Congress to oposo these trusts, so long they must be met
with all possible celerity and power. No one can believe
that the two-billion-dollnr bread trust would have stopped
there. Since each dollar's worth of slock of the original
Ward company has increased iu paper value 1,85.0 times
since 11)lfl, it is only reasonable to suppose lhat we

Australian National Band Visits Canada
For the first time in history, the
peoplo of Australia have sent out
a representative hand to Canada. Selected from every state
in the Commonwealth of Australia, this group or 25 expert musicians will moke a comprehensive
tour of the Dominion under the
name of "Tiie Australian National
Band." giving concerts at Uie principal cities along the way. They
came to Canada directly from Ens-
laud, where tiny competed in the
famous English Hand Contest at
Manchester, Thn completed a
lengthy Bngagcmonl in England.
Previous to ihis the band spent six
weeks In South Africa and in all. including engagements in Australia
und Now Zealand, the band has heen
1 on tour for the past ten month:
The Canadian tour opened September 25th at Quebec, wliere the
musicians arrived over the Canadian
Pacific steamship lines. The reception given to the band at the An-
nt Capital was excellent. Complete arrangements for. concerts
across the Dominion had been made
by Lieut. H. Gladstone Hill, director
of publicity and manager of thc Canadian tour. In Montreal the Australian Band was featured in thc McGill University Reunion celebrations on October 4th, to which function the band had been invited as
guests. In the afternoon of the
same day tbe band played for the
march past or the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Boston.
upon their visit to Montreal.
One of the most noticeable features of the band is its versatility,

and skill. When they cross Canada

original holdings of 148 acres which
were first staked had been increased

total of 23..900 ucres/ .. '
Whole Ore Body Productive
.M, O'Brien, the assistant super-
description of tlie geology of the
mine,.and the nature of the ores encountered, wliich while somewhat
technical, were still full of interest
to everyone. It was stated that with
the development of the selective flotation processes at the Concentrator,
the whole of the immense ore body
become workable, and with each development in the treatment of the
ore, changes were necessary in the
general scheme of operations at the
niini*. Up-to-date methods were in
service in nil operations connected
wilh thi> removal and handling of tbe
ore, and the output was now slated
to huve reached the equivalent of
nine tons per man underground,
Million Ton* a Year
Equally; absorbing, even if couched
in language a Ititle more technical,
was the paper on the milling proccs-
ics in use at the Concentrator, reud
)y H. K. Banks, concentrating en
gineer. This covered the operating
experiences of ibe company since the
mill commenced running in thc fall
of 1U2;1. From that time to the end
of last month, three million tons of
ore had passed through the mill, und
now an extension was being completed to increase the capacity to four
thousand tons per day. operating on
two shifts ns at present.
Details of the machines through
which the ore passes from the time it
enters the mill after* the 3%-mlle
haul from thc mine to the final stage
tlie product is loaded as concentrates
were given, and the various proces-
ses through which it pusses explained technically. Briefly, the ore goes
from the loading bins through the
roll mil's to tbe bull mills and fine
crushing, ahd from thence to the
flotation tanks foi* the separation of
thc various elements, Interesting
figures were given to -show the power
units in use, and the nature of plant
material which has been experiment,
ed with. Wear on mnchines and
their parts were gone into to show
the necessary renewals, and it was
shown that the various engineering
departments are working in close cooperation all the time to secure the
best, results. It was stated among
other figures given, that the coneen
trator made use of a million and i
half gallons of water per day. In
cidentally it was nlso shown that the
nature of the processes put into prac-
tice has also called for the development of many special lines of supplies of various nature, such as oils,
belting, lumber, rubber goods and
many other lines, that create special
business for supply firms in these
lines in nil parts of the country. Mr,
Hanks described the ultimate goal
of the engineering staff at the concentrator as the extraction of "100
per cent, of the lead, zinc nnd iron
from the ore, and milling for next
to nothing," but he ndmitted that in
spite of whnt had been done, they
had not yet quite achieved that end.
A good many questions were asked
by the visiting mining men arising
out of the two papers, und other officials of the company contributing
lo the discussion were H. W. Poole,
flotation engineer nnd C. Ought red,
concentrator superintendent.
Arrangements were completed for
the visit to Kimberley the following
day, and the meeting adjourned after the company officials who had
contributed the papers and discussion
of the evening had been tendered the
hearty thanks of the Institute members.

grew in such profusion in the fertile
dells. But the scene had not always
been so peaceful und charming as
it then appeared. Not many months
back the ground hnd been barren of
greenery The quiet strenm, now
purling so musically, hud been a mad,
whirling, rushing torrent, hurling itself down from the mountain, overflowing its banks, and currying wanton destruction in its train Here and
there evidences of its ravages were
still visible, most evident and conspicuous among them being the re-
mnins of a once commodious and
comfortnble dwelling-house, noW ly-
ing in a henp of ruins, and in utter
desolation, The foundation had been
nt fault. Jesus immediately recognized in it n prncticnl illustration of
the teachings He had just been imparting, and, turning to His hearers
He said: "Whosoever hearcth these
sayings of mine nnd doeth them not,
shall be likened unto a foolish man
who built his house upon the sand."
The man with the sure foundation
was the one who dug down deep
through the sand, and laid, the foundations of his house upon bed-rock.
Then when the rains descended, and
the freshets came, and the wind blew,
it would stund. The man who is concerned about laying sure foundations
for his character will dig deep down
and build the superstructure of his
character upon the foundation stones
of Christ's teachings.
May I. very briefly, suggest just
a few of these foundation stones:
1. First, I would lay the corner
stone of "self-conlrol. "Whosoever
is angry *vith his brother without a
cause is in danger of Hell fire."
Self-control is, in reality, Christ-control.
2. Next to the hard granite rock
of self-control I would place, the
snow-white marble pillar of "purity
of thought." As a man thinketh in

of some other stones indispensable
to the laying of a sure foundation

Good  In  The  Movement
Speaking to the boys on Canadian-
ism, Father Ehman stated that he
felt every Native Son of Canada
would do something good. The movement, which was ushered in but recently to further a greater Canadian*
ism, bore threads of evil ns well ns
promise for good—it was fortunate
that the effect so fur had been for
good, niakiug Canada a greater Canada. White mosl people knew all
about the mother country, Uh con*
quests, its progress iu science, literature and art, and while admiring the
progress of the States, it was unfortunate that they overlooked the
4p0 years of glorious history of Canada, that presented a glorious panorama not equalled in the history of
the world. They should study the
"Makers of Canada" to gain a knowledge of the affairs of the country
which they should have. There was
the same possibility of science, literature and art in Canada as there was
ln other countries.
He   urged   the   boys  to  make
study of Canada, for to know Canada
was to make for a greater Canada.
Mrs. Park's rendering of a vocal
solo was the cause of much applause.
Rev. M. S. Blackburn, who was
present, added a few words of congratulation to the Native Sons and to
Mr. Wallace, as well as to the winners
and losers for the part they had each
taken in the development of the game
in Cranbrook during the past summer.

Refreshments Served
Lunch was served by the members
of the Native Sons, which, as explained by the chairman, was prepared by them. He asked them to be
lenient when criticizing the size of
the sandwichs. Judging by the manner in which all the good things were
devoured, it looks as though the men
had got themselves in for a regular
job in the refreshment line—they
were certainly very enjoyable and
well served.
Following the lunch the program
was resumed. Mr. Stanley Moffatt
give additional information as to
the history of lacrosse, also giving
the Gyros and Elks credit for supporting the lacrosse boys.
He called upon the boys to give
three cheers for Mr. Art Wallace and
the Native Sons; thin was lustily accorded. Mrs. Wallace favored with a
piano solo, to which she had to respond three times.

on in the campaign for funds being
staged this winter. Practically a full
quota of the cluh members were

of the committee delegated last week
to meet the committee of the Wardner Athletic Association, with a request thut the Basketball Club be admitted as au affiliated body into that
association, was read to the members,
the gist of it being that the Ladies'
Basketball Club hus become formally

funds this winter. The coming bazuar was the next item of business
put before the club, and definite
plans on this score made. The bazaar

evening of November 12th. Home
cooking, candy, fancywork booths,
fish pond, bran tub, orange trees,
balloon booths, etc., will be listed,
articles being priced reasonably in
order to give purchasers good value.
Refreshments will also be sold, and
it is planned to make the evening a

evening a purty of ubout fifty met
at the North Star Hotel nnd concluded the day. Dancing, songs and
speeches were the feature of the evening. Weather conditions were good
on Sunday morning, giving the party
u chance to view the town before
leaving. This wns certainly a red-
letter duy for Kimberley. At both
luncheons special blue printed menus
of a very unique nature were provided as souvenirs.
Mr.  and  Mrs.  Wm.  Lindsay  were
j Cranbrook visitors on Monday.
Jack Dow left on Tuesday for his
home in Cranbrook, where he spent
u few days with his mother and sister, the latter being seriously ill.
Mr. Evans, of Blarchmont Park,
(returned home last week from a business trip to Vancouver, spending a
Uhort  time  at  Seattle und  Spokane.
Rain and an abundance of moisture
has swollen the waters of the Kootenay  considerably  of  late.
Mr. T. H. Slater, who is familiarl>
known to lumber workers of the west,
is again back ut his Waldo occupation. Mr. Slater related some of h.a
vast experiences during his rampage
.to Tia Juana, Mexico, and Flagstutf,
Arizona. While in Mexico Mr. Slatet
and his associates had a narrow escape from bcing taken for spies in
the rebel forces, and only narrowly
Mr. J. Muir, who has been logging
qu.te extensively during the past
summer along the banks of the Koo
lenay, will soon complete the work at
his present site and will in all probability remove to Ins old camp
grounds on the Plumbbob Waters,
wheie the Baker Lumber Co. have a
large stand of virgin timber cut near
u nume, which miring the fire of the
pust summer wus put partially out of
commission. The necessary repuirs
will be given attention when the time
is opportune.
Mr. Metro, of the Waldo Transport
Co., is making his regular run with
supplies to the camps in connection
with his taxi business.

' holiday   in  thc   mountains.
Indicative of the trouble which the
■ Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
went to in the entertainment of the
visiting mining men to Cranbrook
and Kimberley last week-end, nnd
the extent to whicli they looked after
details in this connection, were the
menus which had been prepared for
the luncheon tendered the visitors by
the company, and also for the Institute dinner on Saturday night last.
Both   these,   menus   were   blue-print
drawings made by the company staff.
The luncheon menu had on the fron
a reproduction of the portal of Sul
livan Mine, while opened to dlsclost
the menu items on the inside. On
the back wile shown hands shaking,
representing the international aspect
of the meetings.
The menu for the evening dinnei
was a particularly elaborate affair,
and was executed on a large sheet
folded. The inside four pages were
executed to allow in graphic form of
a flow sheet for the Concentrator,
with a description of the machines and
processes in use, and diagrams. There
was also a humorouri drawing of the
"Sullivan Kow," showing the animal
getting its rations of "galena silage,"
which are brought to it by Bill l.ind-
day from the mine. E. G. Montgomery, the superintendent is shown approaching the scene, and addresses
Cliff. Oughtred, Concentrator Superintendent, who is milking the
"kow," with the remnrk, "Hey, Cliff,
the old critter doesn't ent much," to
which the facteous reply is mude,
"Bide awhile, Ed., she's getting bigger ench day. Wait till she's full
grown." These productions were
much remarked upon, and are being
preserved as souvenirs.
The courtesy of the company ill
placing officials at the disposal of the
visitors is also favorably commented
upon, and also tbe trouble which
they went to iu seeing that the visitors to the dislricl had a full and interesting program  awaiting them.

with a heart seizure about midnight,
while apparently -till at the hotel,

coming to Canada in 1004, he was
engaged in the work of railroad construction with the Spokane International railway, as well as that of
the C.P.R, along the (row. In 190S
he started in business in Cranbrook
in a shoe repair shop, with which ho
remained identified in otic way or
another until about two years ago,
when he disposed of his business. In
1910 he became interested in the

Red   River   Expedition
Few modern Canadians realize how
vitally this question of the integrity
of the great dominion called Canada,
has very largely its hasis in the success or failure of this expedition.
The school histories give hut a very
superficial   reference to   it  and   its
tinuite consequences.
The Hudson's Hay officials residing
in the territory were loud-spoken in
denouncing the bargain entered into
by their directors iu London, that it
injured them materially, without providing uny compensation for the loss
they were about lo sustain; that they,
the working hues of the hives, wero
to receive nothing, whilst the drones
of stockholders in England were to
gel all the honey in the shape of
Injudicious Silence
The Engliah-sponklnir farmers, although thoroughly loyal and anxious
for annexation to Canada, so uh to
l.f delivered from what many called
the "thraldom of the Hudson's Hay
Company," regarded the terms of the
transfer in no favorable light, They
thought they should hnve been consulted] and the injudicious silence
of the Canadian ministry with reference to the form of government to
be established caused many divisions
amongst the party. Although they
would have scorned to take part in
any actual resistance against the establishment of the new order of
things, vet they were by no means
sorry to see tho Ottawa ministry in
difficulties, The-J considered themselves slighted and were sulky in eoti-
squence. They had no intention of
j giving themselves any trouble to aid
V government that had not only failed to consult or consider their interests, but had ignored their existence altogether.
With tbe exception, therefore, of
the small handful of Canadian adventurers already alluded to, no one residing in the settlement in 1.806, was
jjleased with the arrangement, and
many were loud-spoken in denouncing it. Where such active elements
of discontent existed, it may be
cub ily imagined how simple it was
to fan the smouldering embers into
the flame of active rebellion.
Giving Rise to Unrest
The previous political history of
the country was curious, from tho
fact of there never having been any
active government whatever. There
was nominally a governor and council'
in whom resided all sovereign powers.

men hud combined together and proclaimed a republic. One waa named
president and two others appointed
the principal ministers of this lilipu-
thlan government. Amongst the first
acts of this self-constituted trinity
was a decree condemning the fourth
conspirator to deuth. This fourth
man was a German tailor, and as he
constituted in his own person the
whole of the populace recognizing
the authority of these solf-styled
rulers, there was no one to carry sentence into execution. Whether it
was owing to the discredit which this
poworlessnoss lo enforce their decrees brought upon them, or from the
general loyalty of the people to British institutions is not known, hut thin
republic was as short-lived as a butterfly, and its appearance and disappearance caused as little excitement

A   Futile  Attempt
This trifling Incident is merely related to convey an idea of the state
of society which existed there lip to
1808. The people lived in peace and
harmony with one another. They
paid no taxes, and were so little accustomed to the machinery of a government, or the responsibilities of
having to make laws or administer
them themselves thai when these adventurers tried to impress upon their
minds the glories resulting from the
exercise of thc noble right of self-
government, following up their lessons by proclaiming a republic, the
inhabitants of the Red River territory merely laughed. The only polities
which existed, and they were of re
cent growth, consisted of heing for
against the Hudson's Bay Company. A monopoly must always be
obnoxious to the majority and never
even in feudal times had there heen
:i more rigid one than that established formerly throughout the great
North West by that corporate body.
No one else could import anything
into the country or send furs out of
it. And it may he said thut no one
could either buy or sell except from
the Hudson's Bay officials. Ever, in
1871) the whole of the inland communications were in its hands, and
hanking arrangements could he
made hut through its agents. Notwithstanding the heavy expenses entailed by the conveyance of goods
over the great distances that separated the country from civilization, yet

At a university alumni dance,
Molly Cochran, wife of the Governor,
is importuned by Arthur Bancroft,
to influence her husband in behalf
of Stephen Renfro for Governor.
Finally she sees in it a case of blackmail. Years before, when deserted
by Renfro, her fiance, she had wandered into a house in the lower part
of the town. She did not go beyond
the door, but Bancroft was there
and saw her. Cochran's mother overhears n pnrt of the present conversation.

The two women were left facing
each other on the balcony. The elder
was first to speak. "I've been Greg,"
ishe said.   "He was looking lor you."
"Greg ....?" Molly started
from the blank depths into which she
had fallen, looked about vaguely.
"Where . . . ?"
"He came by to toll you that he
was taking the midnight train—
some unexpected business. He
couldn't   stop   longer."
"You mean—he's gone?'' There
was profound, unconscious despair In
the words.
Sarah Cochran was staring fixedly at her. "It's just as well, don't
you think?" she said al last.
Molly glanced up und met tliat
hostile    stare.      "Oh—you    heard,
She pointed to the next
separated from theirs by
ly a few feet- "1 was looking for
you to tell you about Greg, 1 caught
a few words. I Stayed—for Greg's
sake—1 had to stay." Again the full,
majestic height. Thc stately old
head lifted.
Even at such a time Molly could
weigh whut the confession must have
cost her.
During the short drive home no
further word was spoken. By tacit
consent the older woman alighted at
the "mansion" instead of continuing
on as usual to her own home. In
silence they entered the house and
ascended the stairs to Molly's sitting-
room. Mrs, Cochran closed the door,
stood with one hand still on the knob.
Once more there was the effect of
supernatural height — the smiting
Since you've hoard that much,
she said, "you may as well hear tho
rest."      She  paused to collect  the
facts in her mind, to arrange them
in their proper order.
Sarah Cochran waited austerely
At the last day Molly would not
stand before a more implacable
"I was in love with Stephen Renfro once—at least I thought I was
. . . ." She was surprised at the
ease—the glibnett—of her words.
"He asked me—finally—to marry
him. Then one evening he did not
come. I waited until midnight.
Three mornings later his marriage
to Susan Dilworth was announced in
the papers.
"I don't know just what happened.
I was young. I hadn't supposed men
were like that. My one thought was
to destroy myself—not so much physically . . . Anyhow, I went out
into the streets. I walked and walked for houra. I kept drawing nearer
the river, and yet I knew that wasn't
what I wanted. Toward midnight I
passed a row of houses—you remember where they used to be between
the railroad tracks and the river. I
saw a woman. It came to me liko n
blow—that was the way—to deslt'py
myself. I went up the steps of one
of the houses. I rang the bell. Arthur Bancroft was standing in the
hall   ....
"Oh, no—not that. . . . But he
had seen me there—I was there four
hours. It comes to the same thing
as far as he's concerned.
"The next morning Greg saw me
standing by the railroad track, waiting for the train to pass. He followed and overtook me at the river,
The rest you know, except that—
I tried again—nnd he stopped me
again." She made a brief gesture of
It was not easy for Sarah Cochran
to break her long silence. Her mouth
twitched at the corners. The muscles
of her face jerked convulsively. "My
son—my son!" Her moan was a
itrnnge blend of anguish and bitterness. "A woman like you—you let
him marry you?"
"Yes," Molly said simply, "'I let
him marry me."
"A woman like you—my son . . .
And he's to be dragged through the
mud and slime—his career at an end,
his work gone for nothing—and all
because of you . . ." The proud old
head sank forward. The heavily
veined hands opened and closed with
a gesture of unspeakable futility.
"After all the years and hopes and
sacrifices—that you should happen
across his path liko that—the merest
accident .... I knew from the
first—something warned me you
would bring ruin on him, bring ruin
on us all . . . ."
'He's not ruined yet," Molly suggested quietly. "There may be some
way ..."
The older woman lifted her head,
looked across nt her piercingly. That
had not occurred to her. She considered it for some minutes. Then,
We must think only of Greg," she
muttered, more to herself than to
"Yes, we must think only of Greg,"
the latter repeated quietly. "But
there's one thing I hnve to take into
account that you don't—Greg loves
me. He loves me so much that all
that—other didn't make any difference to him. I've got to try to think
of what will hurt him least." She
picked up her wrap and gloves and
moved toward her own room. "When
I've decided on something I'll come
back and tell you."
In her room with the door shut
and bolted, Molly began at once to
take off her evening things. She
found a dnrk traveling suit In the
closet and put it on, brought out a
suitcase and stowed away a few immediate necessities in it. In her little wall safe there was three hundred
dollars in gold which Greg had given
her on her last birthday. She glanced
at her watch. Fifteen minutes to
two—and the northbound express
went through at three.
Molly sat down to the writing desk.
Greg—I lied to you about that
rejection slip this morning. It was
an offer of a position—not much
to begin with, but an opening
wedge, a chance to learn. I'm
leaving tonight to take it in.
I know this will seem abrupt
and ill considered, but I hnve desires—I don't know whether I can
call them ambitions—older than
my love for you, stronger perhaps.
I can't content myself with being
merely absorbed—no separate existence. I must belong a little to
myself.    I've tried to make you
Some day when you are happy

She was about to conclude, "Try
to believe that, in spite of this, I love
yon aad shall -always love you."   But
she checked her pen
ly the word, "Molly."
Sho took up her purse and traveling bag. Halfway across the room
she hesitated; finally put the bag
down, went quickly Inward her husband's door, turned on the light. He
must have gotten off on very short
notice indeed, for things were in a
great state of confusion-—drawers
hanging open, closet doors ajar,
things scattered about.
She moved about now, laying
things back carefully in their proper
place;, giving the little touch here
and there that he liked. Tomorrow
or the day after he would be coming
home. Her heart smote htr sorely
at the thought. He was always so
glad to get back, so content to be
with her again, after even the brief-

Sarah Cochran was pacing mens-
uredly up and down with the air of
one who awaits the issue from a room
where the old, old battle of life and
death is being fought out once more.
When Molly came in and set down
the traveling bag, she halted and
stared blankly at her.
The   latter   compared   her   watch
with the clock on the mantel, which
pointed to half-past two.

A. B. Trites, of Fernie and Vancouver, has procured a :S0-day option on thc Richfield mine at Topley,
near Smithers, from the discovery
of what is admitted to be one of the
greatest surface gold ore showings
found in the history of British Columbia.
The Vancouver mining man secured tho option over some of the largest
mining companies on the continent,
which have rushed engineers to the
property to examine and mnke reports.
In a number of instances the original holder hns refused to give bonds
on his claims. In others the companies were going through the customary procedure of making formal
reports to headquarters before action
was taken.
On June 1 the ground was first
staked in the Smithers area on the
Grand Trunk line, the nearest station being Topley. L. S. McGill,
president of the board of trade at
Smithers, informed the Chamber of
Mines that recently the Richfield property has resembled a convention
place for mining engineers. In the
knowledge of mining men, no other
unproved ground in British Columbia has received such instantaneous
attention and by such powerful interests as that accorded the Topley
Some of the engineers examining
the ground for well-known mining
companies are: Major Angus Davis

and Smelting  Company of Canada,
A. B. Trites, whose option was effective about September 25 or 27,
is paying Taylor *20 a day for the
privilege of sampling and making extensive examination of the showings.
Word has heen received by the
Nationnl Apple show committee
which will bc held on December 8,
0, 10 and 11 at Vancouver, that local
packing houses throughout the province arc arranging exhibits in sections one, two and three, and are
putting apples through the graders
for this purpose.
It is stated for the information of
all concerned that rule four will apply to these sections as follows: "All
individual exhibits must be grown by
exhibitor unless otherwise stated. No
exhibitor shall be permitted to make
more than one   entry   in  any   ma
Under these circumstances local
packing houses cannol mix apples
belonging to different growers in
order to make entries in these
classes. They can, however, grade
the apples of one exhibitor to make
a good entry from that exhibitor.
The rule was mado so that individual growers would have a great
competition and thnl lhe entries
received would be bona fide property of the exhibitor who grew them.
Already moro than one hundred
.ntries have heen received and this
-•arly start bids fair to continue until
i'most an avalanche may be expected. Growers hnve the best oppor-
.unity in their lives to obtain a definite market, besides having the opportunity of competing fur some of
the biggest cash prizes ever put up
for apple competition.

Quebec, Quebec. — It is Ullilerslo d
tbat construction will tako place iu
the very near future of a huge metallurgical plant in tin Lake St. .T<>hn
district. This project waa conceived
by the late James B. Duke, but was
temporarily abandoned after bis
death. As practically the complete
elcctrict power output of thc Lake
St. John district is now employed \n
other industries, it is believed that
the realization of the new project
will be witnessed immediately after
the harnessing of the hydraulic
wealth of the Chute a Caron. The
proposed plant would be used as a
zinc smelter and as a general metal
refining establishment.

brought a very favorable report regarding the proposed addition to our
present building of a gymnasium aud
swimming tank, assuring us that several of the leading officials of the
company have promised their wholehearted support.

ferred well patronized.
