THIS     PAGE    IS     PUBLISHED     IN     THE     INTERESTS     OF     THE     RATEPAYERS     OF     CRANBROOK
CITIZEN SI      BEWARE!       OF      THE      SNARLING,       DECEIVING      PROHIBITION      AGITATOR
Vote   Down   Prohibition! Vote   Down   Local   Option!
This means protection to your HOHE and FAMILY*      Statistics show that Prohibition is a promoter of
CRIME,    MURDER,    RAPE,    POVERTY   AND    RETROGRESSION
Consider the fol'owing Facts carefully, you can verify every one of them from Government Statistics:
THE  STATE  OF MINNESOTA WITH   ITS  LICENSED  BAR-ROOMS
In  l'.WH Minnesota had lillO Convicts
In  l'JOH Minnesota had 100 Murderers
In 11)08 Thirty-threo (113) Casos of Rape wore reported in Minnesota
In 11)08 One Hundred uno Fifteen (115) Convicts,
were natives of Minnesota
THE  STATE OF  KANSAS  WITH   ITS  PROHIBITIONISTS
In 1908 Kansas had 818 Convicts*—128 mors than Minnesota
la 11*08 Kansas had 172 Munlorors—liii more Murderers than  Minnesota
In 11*08 Eighty (80) Cases of Knpt- wcro retried in Kansas
47 more Cast's of Rape than  Minnesota1
In 11*08 Uno Hundred and Eighty-five (185) convicts were natives ol Kansas
Kansas produced 70 moro Convicts than Minnesota
Minnesota has a much larger population than Kansas, and accordingly should have more paupers and criminals than Kansas;  but  Kansas  takes  the   palm for
paupers and criminals, the direct cause of which is traceable to PROHIBITION   and   LOCAL   OPTION.
C0MH0N  SENSE
"THK   SEARCHLIGHT,"     or  a
more appropriate name would be
"THE- BLIND IMG ADVOCATE,"
made its initial appearance on the
streets ol Cranbrook last Friday
eveninc.
Tlte "Sheet" is true to the name of
its editor "The Fanatic." Webster
describes a "Fanatic" us one who Indulges in wild and extravagant notions. A bigot.
The sole object of the "publication"
is, apparently, the annihilation ot thc
"Liquor Trailic."
This "Champion of Prohibit ion and
High Cockolorum of the Dvspepllc
Brltrade," discusses the question of
"Loeal Option" with the "'-'Midice
and morbid sentiments of a "Neal
Dow."
PROHIHITIOX is a f-reat economic
question that anneals with potential
un-iMirv to the MATERIAL, the INDUSTRIAL and MORAL good ol the
Nation and the happiness of our
ni'onle. And surely you will agree
■ hat anv question oi such deco
significance is deserving of lieing considered and discussed bv all tho laws
of REASON and COMMON SENSE,
rather than bv PASSION and PREJUDICE and SENTIMENT.

million. ll Prohibition and Temperance he the same thing, we arc
certainly   making   prodigious strides
towards    tl Millenium."      Hut
SOHKK MINDKD PEOPLE have no
faith in the PROFESSIONS and
PROMISES of Prohibitionists, Fifty
veins ago, lhe leaders of the crusade
tliomrhl thev saw the dawn of the
perfect dav. when there would not In1
a dram shop nor a drunkard in all
the land. They were confident that
Ihe problem of intemperance, which
had perplexed and baffled mankind for
thousands of years, was as good as
solve!. The great Dragon was about
to he slain andhis dead 'carcass hurled
into t-he bottomless pit. But it
turned out to he all a dream. The
Dragon was not slain; he was not
even seriously wounded. If he disappeared at all, it was only lo betake himself to the cellar to await
the passing storm. In llie course ol
a few years, the "Temperance
Wave" passed awav, and the frenzy
and hvsterin that caused it, and was
caused hv it, died nut.
The crusade nol only did not solve
the liquor problem, hut it complicated the problem with new difficulties.
The states that adopted the prohibitory system soon tound themselves
confronted with two evils instead of
one, the old disease of intemperance
and the new "remedy" of Prohibition. And now the successors of
the men who rallied round the standard of Neal Dow are making precisely the same promises and predictions
that were made of old.
The liquor problem is one ot the
most complex of all social problems.
It does not stand out alone, simple,
distinct and isolated as Prohibitionists would have us believe. It is at
once a moral, an ■-••--•nomic, a Physiological and psychological
and. in its final analysis, a
purely personal problem. It contains many elements and involves
many perplexing dillictilties. When
we look helow the surface and study
ihis problem in its deeper aspects,
we find that its roots are inextric-
ahlv intertwined with those of other
social nroblcms. So that -genuine
and thorough temperance reform must
lie conducted along manv different
lines.
The liquor problem is not exclusively not chicflv * leeislative problem, and hence il eannot he solved
hv legislation alone. The evil of Intemperance is not caused, though it
mav be aggravated, hy bad legislation, and it cannot lie removed,
though it may be lessened, hy good
legislation.
Legislation has its part to play—
and a not unimportant part—in any
comprehensive programme of temperance reform; hut when legislation
encroaches on the domain of the
(•lunch and the home, when it ventures to act as a substitute for purely soeial and moral agencies, it not
onlv fails to accomplish any good,
hni causes the greatest harm.
No legislative svsteiu has ever been
more e\lensivel\ nor fairly tested
than thai of Prohibition. During
the last sixty years it has becn tried
on llie statewide scale in manv different sections of tho countrv and
under the most diverse social ami
political conditions, the periods of
trial ranging from three years iu
Nebtaska in fifty - three years
in     Vermont. Hv   its  record,  hv
what it has done ami bv what il
has not done, PROHIBITION must
he judged, Ou ever) page of that
record, from beginning to end, are
written the words, FAILURE,
FOLLY. FARCE. Nowhere and at
no time, in all ils history, has Prohibition accomplished a single one of
its avowed objects Nowhere has it
prevented tho consumption or liquor,
noi lessened the evil of intemperance.
Neither as a stale-wide system nor
undcr Local Option has Prohibition
evet made ihe .slightest contribution
toward lhe solution of tbe liquor
problem. The one solitary service
that it has rendered to society is
thai of furnishing a warning example
of the supreme folly of attempting to
Icislate virtue inlo men's lives.
Thorc could tie no sl longer evidence
of the failure ot Prohibition than the
lact Uml seven of the eight states
Ihat adopted lhe system lifty years
ago, have since abandoned it and
gone back lo the policy of license and
regulation. The people ol these
.stales adopted Prohibition iu good
faith. Thev llOUCStly and earnestly
desired to wipe out intemperance.
Thev realized that intemperance was
directly or indirectly the cause of
much crime, poverty and disease;
that it was a financial burden on the
state atid thai it was a hindrance to
material prosperity and to moral
progress. Thev thought it was better policy lo abolish than to license
and regulate a traflic that seemed to
them to he the root and source of
this evil. Now, to claim that
Prohibition was even measurably
successful in these states, that- it accomplished even a little good, is to
insult the intelligence of the people
New England. The onlv conclusion
consistent with reason and common
sense is that the neople, after vears
of hitter evperience, found that thev
had built on Jalse hones, and that
conditions were not onlv not hetter
but far worse than thev had been under the license svstein. Tito State1'
of Maine, which is tlio onlv one of
these slates that has retained Prohibition all these vears, is actually
showing sims of Pennine repentance.
That Prohibition hns la-en a failure
and n farce in thnt State Is a matter
of common  knowledge.   No one who
is not a blind partisan will deny
this. Four vcars ago. Governor
Cobb, a sincere Prohibitionist and an
honest und outspoken man, declared,
in his inaugural address, that the
state ought to be ashamed ol itself
to have a prohibitory law on its own
books ami to make that law u
laughing stock of the nation.
A dispatch from Portland, Maine,
published in the Chicago Evening
■ Journal, of May (ith last, puts the
cap sheaf on the shock of Prohibitum iniquities:
"Recorder Wilbur C. Whcldon, ot
"the municipal court believes that
"the Countv of Cumberland should
"establish farms for drunkards and
"quit sending thfai to tail."
Shades of decency, listen to this:
"There arc at least -100 men and
"women who come befo>-f this court
"time and again. Their appearance
"is periodical. One might be almost
"able to tell the season of thc vear
"bv it. I have suggested that these
"confirmed drunkards Ik- treated in
"some other wav. A good farm
"could he purchased bv t/he Countv.
"There I would establish an institution. I believe that handled in this
"wav. The number of curifiri'ii-d
"drunkards—which it seems to me fs
"increasing all the time—might be
"reduced rapidly."
And there in Maine where Prohibition has reigned triumphant for 57
vears, in which two generations have
come atid gone, there in Prohibition
Maine the drunkard's farm is to he
organized as a reformatory institution' All hail, drunkards' farm!
All hail, Prohibitionists! All hail.
Maine!    Let thv Heht so shine!
Her name is a reproach. Her
h-'nocrisv smells to heaven! Her
star in the field of blue upon our
country's banner blazes out her
shame and desecrates its sanctity.
The Report of the Committee of
Fifty, based on a most thorough and
extensive investigation ot conditions
iu Maine, tells the whole storv of the
miserable failure of Prohibition
throughout the whole state, The
.statistics relating to arrests for
drunkenness alt tell tlic same tale.
Tliev spell the word FAILURE.
In response to the loud clamorings
of llie Anti-Saloon League, the Legislature of (ieorgia enacted a prohibitory law a couple of vears ago. ine
act went into effect .January 1st,
IbUB. For a short time the new law
seemed to have a good efiect. Judging from surface indications it looked as if Prohibition might at last
break its long record of failure and
actually stop the sale of liquor. Uut
again, it was all a dream, and a
verv short dream too. The drinkers
adjusted themselves to the "dry"
svstem. and were soon hobnobbing
as openly ami boldlv as ever with the
old Demon. Conditions kept going
from had to worse, am) before the
law had heen on the statute hooks a
vear, it was clearly evident to everybody that had even half an eve that
Prohibition1 in Georgia had broken
down.
Here is the testimony ol two of
tin- Prohibition leaders themselves,
Rev. Dr. Holderbv. of Atlanta, au
ardent Prohibitionist, said last winter:
"The Legislature is afraid to stand
bv tlie verv law it enacted twelve
months ago. Atlanta has become a
laughing stock and a stench in the
nostrils of the Almlght- "
This confession must have lieen
verv humiliating tp the good parson,
as he had been telling his neople
rii'lil along that he knew it to be a
faet that tlie Almighty was on tlie
side of Prohibition. Assistant Superintendent Richards, of the Anti-
Saloon League, utters his wail:
"Heer is sold here right and left
and I know lt. Vou can get whiskey,
too: for what does it mean when
twenty-seven carloads of beer and
whisky are shipped here?"
Well, Brother Richards, it means,
in the first place, that there arc a
good many thirsty people in Atlanta,
and in tlm second place, that vour
PROHIBITORY LAW IS A HUMBUG.
The writer ls verv familiar with
the working of Prohibition, under
the LOCAL OPTION SYSTEM, iu a
number of the towns on the east end
of Long Island, and from his own
observation during tlie last seven
rears he ean testify to the fact that
in everv tine of theBC "dry" towns,
Prohibition    hns   been   a disgusting
farce every time it has becn tried. In
the writer's own town the record ot
Prohibition may lie summed up in tbe
admission of the Anti-Saloon League
leader that " Anybody can get ull the
liquor he wants in this town under
either license or no-license." That
no-license has failed to accomplish
anv good on Long Island, mav lw inferred from lhe fact that at the elections last spring, everv town on llie
Island was carried lor license hv a
decisive majority. The Anti-Saloon
IjCafrUc made the liglit of its life,
hut it was of no use. The people
knew all about the "BLESSINGS"
id Prohibition and thev concluded
that thev imd had enough. Thc Pro-
bilionists lost every town thev then
held, jncludin" conservative old East
I lampion, which gave a maioritv for
''■ruse for the first time in FIFTY
YEARS.
The following considerations will
reveal a few of the more General
reasons whv Prohibition in this
e-jiintrv has proved a failure.
Prohibition is an attempt to deprive men of what thev believe to bo
an n,;- ■lent right. The question of
individual rights is the underlying issue iu this whole controversy. Majority rule is, of course, a sound
political principle, but it is obvious
Uial the application of this principle
must he coulkied within reasonable
limits. If a majority has a right
to sav to a minority: "You shall not
drink beer." Another majorit" has
the right lo sav to another minoritv:
"Vou shall noi drink tea." Now it
the people iu anv state or town
should take into their heads to enact
a law * ■■ohibiting the use of tea,
whut a fearful howl would go up from
the camp of the W.C.T.U., and what
an unenviable job the officers would
have iu attempting to enforce such a
law. "What, deprive us of our
right to "Servo tea at our mothers'
"meetings and narlor sociables. Whv,
"it's au outrage." "Oh, but good
ladies we, the majority, made UP as
vou know, of tho better element, have
thoroughly investi-ated this matter,
and we have found that tea Ib very
Injurious. In fact, its a poison.
Look at the thousands uf women
timt have gone down to tea-topers'
graves. Look at the armv of innocent little children that have been
left motherless," etc., etc, Ab a
mailer of fact manv experienced physicians believe that -tea and codec
cause quite as much trouble In the
world as alcohol. The "Temperance" people will retort: "Yes, but
there is a wide difference.between
beer and tea." Of course there is.
ami that is iust whv so manv people
prefer the heer. But there is no
difference between the right to drink
the one ami the right to drink thc
other.
The use of alcoholic liquors is and
has alwavs been considered not onlv
legitimate as a.-:heveiagc, but it is,
consecrated and hallowed in the most
solemn and weighty rite of the
CHRISTIAN CHURCH. Now vou
cannot, bv a niere law. eradicate a
•uiimcnl and destroy an institution
that lias stood tor ages, and that is
so deeply rooted in our whole social
life. Prohibition condemns the
conscience, the judgment and tlw
social habits of countless generations
of the most highly civilized, progressive and moral people. Moreover,
Prohibition passes condemnation on a
great branch of industry that has
been recognized throughout all ages
as LEGITIMATE, an Industry in
which some of thc most venerable
and honored religious orders of thc
CHRISTIAN CHURCH have been
and are todav engaged. Prohibition
necessarily fails because it makes no
discrimination between USE and
ABUSE. It arbitrarily makes a
legal crime of an act whieh is neither
wrong in itself nor contrary to thc
rights and interests of society. Because two or three men use liauor to
excess. Prohibition would compel a
hundred temperate men to follow the
rule of total abstinence. One man is
lame, therefore, all his neighbors
must use crutches.-..
Again Prohibition has failed because it is wholly negative and destructive. You cannot remove an effect until vou remove the cause. You
cannot abolish the liquor traflic until
voil abolish the source of the traffic.
IT IS NOT TIIE LIOUOR TRAFFIC
THAT CREATES THE DEMAND
FOR LIOUOR: IT IS THE DEMAND      FOR       LIQUOR     THAT
CREATES TIIE TRAFFIC. And
iust so long as the demand continues
iust so long will the Btipplv of liquor
Iw forthcoming in one wav or another. The attempt to abolish
the li'iuor traflic by a prohibitory
law is as futile as would he the attempt lo dry up a river hv building
a dam. Prohibitionists seem u> im-
jHne that thev aie dealing only
with the comparatively fcw liquor
dealers; whereas thev arc dealing
with Ihe vast multitude of men that
are determined to use liquor. Thev
tell us that the saloon is a curse.
Well, he ihat as it mav. the practical question is. what blessing d"es
Prohibition furnish as a substitute?
Absolutely none, unless it be the
W.C.T.I.', mothers' meeting and the
weekly prayer meeting. These institutions, excellent as thev are in
their place, are hardly adapted to
satisfy the social needs of the
musses.
Students of social science, men
who have snout vears in observing
and studying the saloon and the saloon conslituencv, whatever views
thev mav hold as to thc character
of this institution as it now exists,
agree unanimously on the following
three propositions:
llJ That the saloon tills a la-iti-
nmte social need.
2. That it is practically ih ■ onli
institution that does fill this need.
3. That it is worse than useless to
attempt to abolish the saloon until
some suitable Institution be established as a substitute.
THE SALOON EXISTS BECAUSE
THERE IS A DEMAND
FOR IT.
A prohibitory law certainly does
and remove this demand. It does
not eradicate tlie social instinct and
tbe desire to drink that lie hack of
the demand. Iu short, it docs not
destroy a single one of the elements
that constitute the life and power of
tlie saloon. It does not introduce
into the community a single element
that acts as an antidote ior the
salomi. Tbe whole rout of this institution remains in the community
intact,  umlusturhed and vigorous.
Prohibitory legislation has never
succeeded in abolishing the liquor
trailic, hut it has succeeded in degrading and demoralizing the traflic
bv driving it into secret places.
Prohibition has not onlv failed to
accomplish its avowed object, but it
has lieen the greatest obstacle to
true temperance reform In ibis country during the last filtv years. Prohibition attempts to do tbat which is
impossible and prevents the doing
of that which is possible If the
liquor problem, in its legislative as-
nects, is ever going to he solved,
the solution must be found alone tho
line of regulation, and thc sooner we
set our feet on thc right path the
sooner we shall roach the desired
end.
Tiie real character ot the Prohibition movement, reacts on the Prohibitionists themselves. Thev throw
TRUTH and REASON and EXPERIENCE to the winds, and often resort to the most contemptible and
disgusting methods lo gain their
end. Some lime ago, a travclin!
salesman who lives in a town in the
Middle West, was returning home
Irom a trip. On arriving ol Ins
station, he noticed tint the stmts
were filled with people. Making
his wav through tbe crowd, hi* discovered that a no-liceuse parade was
in progress, It was a long procession, made up of women and children.
Th'-- carried banners and Hags, and
sang "tcmncrancc" songs. Everv
child wore a badge on whieh were
the words. "Vote for us; we cannot." At the end of the nrof^slon
were several files of children dressed
in rags and tatters, (me of these,
a bov, carried a huge banner, Printed on the banner, in large letters,
were these words: "Mv father is a
drunkard." Our friend the salesman looked al the banner and then
happened to glance al the bov. Suddenly an expression of amazement
came over his face. and. breaking
thron-di the crowd, he ran up to the
ra-"*e.i banner-bearer, and grasping
him bv tlie arm, exclaimed: "Mv
God, what are vou doing here, mv
bov?" It wns ihis gentleman's own
son that had been dressed t"* in
thee racs bv the good "teiir-'-rance"
women and sent out lo carrv Ibis
homier of shame and humiliation
through   the    streets.     This exhibi
tion i*, a sample of Hie methods nu
•'■<■ ' ■ d In  the Prohibitionistb ;■< caiu
.' rts to then eause.
It these children realh   had drunken fathers, u was unspcakabh  hi
and   cruel to   make such ,i spci
ui them before ihe public.      If   tin-::
fathers   were    not    drunkards,     thc
whole   thing was a cheap, theatrical
performance, deliberately intended to
create a false impression on the nulla- mind.     And all this fraud and vulgarity    in    the    name of TEMPERANCE and RELIGION.
Hen- is another example of the intemperate "temperance" of ihe Prohibitionists: A professor oi one ■■:
uur Univeisiti - .■. i pted an invitation hi sneak at a "temperance" ral-
Iv in a church. In thc course of bis
"■■"narks be referred to ihe miracle
at Cana. and expressed himself thus:
"I havo riven this matter profound
ihnuEh;, and I wish to sav to vou
thai 1 have reached the conclusion
that when Christ turned that water
into wine. He did what was -crone."
Blind passion, wild fanaticism and
bitter intolerance are the 'hiel
char.iLt.-miics nf the whole I'r.ihi'-.i-
tfon movement. It rr.i>* be
enl t«> e\erv sane and *--*--i«ona'.de
ti iv! that the sooner this miscalled
"temperance" crusade is buried out
of sight and forgotten, the sooner
the wav will be cleared for eenuir.e
temperance refr.rm.
S»w. the truth is that all thi-.
talk about '■Protecting our borne,
our bovs and our countrv hv voting
for Local Option is sheer
TWADDLE. The protection is a
mvth. 'The so-called Local Option
-v-,T,.m that now obtains in manv of
the states is, the wrong kind. It is
unsound in principle and demoralizing
in its effects. It is a*, variance
with the general Policy of regulation. It is part of the police and
■ ■■'---* ram me of Prohibition. It is an
Instrument placed on the hand, of
Prohibitionists to enable them to
g.un their end little bv little.
Prohibition reallv creates the most
dangerous kind ol temptation—that
which is hidden, but known. Every
voting man that is at all liable to be
led asirav under the license svstem.
Is tar more liable to go astrav und-r
a svstem that encourag'-s secret
prinking. Who wouldn't rather have
his son go into an open saloon and
get a L-ia--s of beer than to have him
ioin his companions in some ba< ■.
room resort'.' if there is anv class
of voung men in the community thai
need the protection of the law. thev
are certainly not lhe ones th.it fre-
quetrt tin* W.C.T.U. nraver meeting
when ll.e town is "drv." While the
rood women are praving and thank
ing the Lord for tin.- great blessing
of Prohibition, these voune fellow,
arc probably "protectfne" themselves in the "dub" room at the far
end fd some allcv.
Prohibition is a breeder ol rank
lr-'ocrisv. About four vears ago.
shortly after a certain town on Long
Island went "dry," a hotel keeper in
tin.*- town received a letter from a
wholesale whisky concern in Kcn-
tuckv reading something like this:
"Will you kindly send .is the na'i t*
of any Persons iii vour town, who
vou think, might be likely to purchase wet goods. We ha*e a ven
One btand of wbiskev thai we should
like to Introduce into voui town. Ue
shall be glad to extend to vou Un
usual courtesy of t<f> per cent commission on all sales that we mav
make through the list vou send us."
Well, the hotel man thought he would
have a little fun. and so be made a
list of about thirtv-live of the most
tabid Prohibitionists in the place,
and sent the list to the whisky lirm.
He thought it would be a fine loke
on the Prohibitionists to have them
delu-'cd with whisky circulars. And
it turned out to be a better loke
than he thought. For. at the end of
t hrce months, he received a Inl t-r
hum the wbiskv p<*nnle thanking him
for what he had done, and onclnsii
a clieci ue for t went v-soven dol lars
commission. This storv throws
liglit on the curious circumstance,
that, as the Prohibition movement
spreads. Ihe consumption of liquor

BAD BLOW TO GOVERNMENT
MINISTERS   TATLOW   AND FULTON RESIGN.
Victoria, Oct. 81.-1 Ion. R. G. T«t-
low. Finance Minister and. Hon. *.
.1. Fulton, Minister of Lands, tonight
handed their resignations In tne
Provincial cabinet, to Premier McHride.      The retiring ministers^ are
dissalistied    with
the
new railway
policy of the .government, latlow
claiming that tbo assistance promised is too great, while Fulton says
that the Canadian Northern will
come to the coast in anv event, and
that the agreement was unnecessary.
Messrs. Tat low ami Fulton are in
accord with tlie no vein ment in all
other matters of policy and administration. The other ministers
stronfclj support lhe premier's rail-
wax policy and lhe defection iu the
cabinet is unlikely to have any bear-
lug on the result of the election.
After the resignations of Messrs.
Tatlow and Fulton became known,
Mr. McHride was seen hy a Daily
News representative ami asked if he
wished to sa\ anything on the subnet.    The premier said:
"Messrs. Fulton and Tatlow handed in their resignations today aud
lliey have been submitted to and accepted b> tbe Lieuienant-lio\ernor.
Substantially the reasons for Capt.
Tallow's withdrawal is his disagree-
■ meat wilh me on lhe quantity or
amount of assistance which it is proposed that lhe Canadian Northern
should have from Hie local government' 1 have the assurance of Capt.
Tatlow that in all other matters he
is iu hearty accord with the present
administration.
'Mr. Fulton's position is summed
up in the lollowing statement, which
he banded mo Ibis evening: "In view
of mv pledge lo the people of British
Columbia in consider any lair and
reasonable proposal thut may be
made to the government for railway
construction in llritish Columbia—
a pledge which 1 gave six years ago
and which I have ever since ta«eu
e.eiy opportunity lo reaffirm—when
lhe agreement between Hie government and the Canadian Northern,
now before the country, was dually
agreed op, I had lo resign.
"There was no oilier course open
lor me but to accept their resignations. My negotiations with the
C.N.R., as everyone knows, have
been umlct way for upwards ot two
years past and uot until Mr. Mann's
last visit to llritish Columbia was 1
able to arrive at what I considered
to be a reasonable and businesslike
solution of the problem. The great
aud far reaching Importance of this
matter has alwavs been well In my
mind and the Dual determination was
teached after most mature consideration."
Mr. McHride was asked if he Intended that the contract with the
railway companies mentioned in his
previous interviews would bo published.     He replied:
"They will he given out in the
course of a few days, although there
is no particular reason why thev
should be published, [nr all the facts
have been made known. They unduly executed by the companies and
are as binding on them as any contract could he. There is one thing
which I wish to make as plain as
words can express it mid that is thai
1 stand or fall liy what I have promised the people in respect to the
railway companies."
On being asked the nature of matters which would have to he embraced in the measure lo be submitted to
the legislature and iml lucludvd iu
the compact as signed, Mr. McUride
said:
"Thev do not Involve the substantive features of the existing con-
tiact, for these will uot be altered,
ihev will provide for the carrying
out of the contract. For example,
the C.N.R. is to secure the province
bv a lirst mortgage on its line within this province. Tlie measure sub-
milted to the legislature will have
to provide for the creation of a
trusteeship, in which this mortgage
will be vested. The government) is
going to guarantee thc company's
bonus, hut il does not propose tu allow the company to receive the
money derived from the sale of the
bonds' until it is untitled to it.
Therefore, Hie monev will he paid
to the credit of the province and will
not ire paid nul to the company until satisfactory evidence has been given Ihal the work of actual construction entitles Hie company to receive
it."
Mr. McHride added: "1 have no
fear of an appeal to the people. They
have trusted mc for seven years and
thev are not going to withdraw their
confidence now. They are going to
take me at my word and give me a
chance to make good. 1 believe
that the policy which is submitted to
the people is one that will he of lbe
utmost value to the province and will
impose a minimum of burden upon the
treasury. We will pot oven have to
pav interest on the C.N.R. bonds
during construction and after the line
is built from lhe Yellowhead Pass to
Barclay Sound, we will have as a
guarantee that the province will lose
nothing, all the resources of the
C.N.R. system, which is even now
operating more than 'Minn miles between the head of Lake Superior and
the Rocky Mountains and will then
he a transcontinental railway in the
fullest sense of the term."
Mr. Fulton seen, slated that for
some time he bas taken thc position
thai ou general principles, railways
in the province ot British Columbia
will be built without government assistance whenever business conditions
warrant the same. That, in his
opinion these conditions warrant,
and in fact almost necessitate, immediate construction of the Canadian
Northern to the Pacific coast and In
consequence in -their case government
assistance from the province is not required. On all other points it may
be stated that he is fully in accord
and svmpalhy with the policy of the
government.
The1 Victoria Colonist says editor-
iallv: "The resignation of Mr. Tatlow. Minister of Finance and Agriculture, and Mr. Fulton, Minister of
Lands, while it will come as a surprise to the people, was not wholly
unexpected bv those who were aware
of the views nt these gentlemen upon
railwav matters. Their reasons for
retirement from tlie ministry are not
exactly consistent with eaeh other.
Mr. Tallow retires because be thinks
llie Canadian Northern is getting too
much, Mr. Fulton goes out because
he thinks that the time has gone by
for subsidizing railways and that in
anv event the Canadian Northern
line would lw built as a necessary
commercial undertaking without a
subsidy.     If Mr. Fulton is right Mr.
Tatlow is wrong in suggesting that a
guarantee of bonds is too much to
give for a line tbat is a commercial
necessity ami will surely pay inter-
•st ou what it will cost. But this
inly by the way. Tbe ex-ministers,
for reasons which are satisfactory to
themselves, are unable to concur with
lheir colleagues in the railway policy
and they took the onlv proper course
open to them. We regret that they
have fell impelled to such a line ol
action, but holding the views that
they entertain, there was nothing lelt
for them lo do. Mr. McHride bad to
choose between keeping his colleagues
and keeping faith with the people and
he lias chosen tlie latter course. The
public will heartily applaud him for
so doing, lie has given by the act
another evidence of his determination
to let nothing stand in the way of
tbe redemption of his promise to givi
the province a progressive and bene
(ieial railway policy. The Colonist
has on many occasions expressed his
appreciation of both the retiring
ministers and has nothing to withdraw on tbat subject. It looks upon
their retirement from public life
with regret although it bas known
fur some time that neither of Ihem
was particularly enamored ot a public career, it wishes tbem both
every success and prosperity for the
future."
lion. W. .1. Bowser was sworn in
tonight as Minister ot Agriculture
aud Finance and will bold that portfolio in conjunction with the Attorney-Generalship until after the election. The vacancy in the portfolio
of lands will be filled within the
next, few days.

A NARROW ESCAPE
The iiinc-vcar-old daughter ol E. H.
Reed, ol the Herald stall, had a narrow escalie Irom being burned to
death last Mondav. shortly alter 1
o'clock. Some rubbish was l.ein
bunted, and with two or three more
playmates the little girl got a tin
and made a lire iu it Irom the large,
one. Thev ran about tethering
small pieces ol wood Ior lue!. ami in
turning tound to pick up a piece to
.mt in lhe tin, the back ol her dress
.-aught lire, aud in a moment she
wus a mass ol llame. Fortunately
Mi. A. II. (Iruee (Prospector) aitd
Mrs. Grace had seen thc burst ol
lame, and rushed to her aid. Mrs.
Grace poured water over the "trls
head and saved her lace ami hait,
while Mr. Grace succeeded in tearing
oil the burning clothes, getting Ms
lauds badlv burnt in doing so. All
that was left of thc clothing were
stockings and boots. Dr. Connolly
was telephoned Ior and was quickly
in attendance, the little sullercr's
iiiins were dressed and she was tak-
.11 boine. She was burnt back and
[foul from her knees to the waist,
and hut lor the promptness of Mr.

DRY FARMING
AG INTELLIGENT   REVIEW    OF
THK SITUATION.
Conservation of moisture means the
reduction of loss to a minimum in
order that the largest possible percentage may be utilized in plant
growth, and Involves both the prevention ol rim oil and ol evaporation;
loss hv suli-drainage in arid lands Ib
probably not heavy enough to be
considered.
Loss hv run oil can be largely prevented by breaking land in such a
manner as to hinder rather than
facilitate tlw getting away ol water
when the snow melts in the spring,
at other seasons ot the year this loss
is not lokcly to be ol any moment.
Loss by evaporation Is the most
serious; eaplllary attraction brings
the water to tlw surface, where it is
quickly vaporized by hot sun and
drying winds. A loss ol as high as
fifty Inches of water has been absorbed from    a soil surface in Mon
tana frnm April-October 1, so that
it becomes evident that this may
easily exhaust the amount nl rainfall
and that prevention of this is the
key to the puzzle.
Capillary action being dependent un
the natural formation uf moisture
tubes upward in the soil, llie lirst
process is by plowing to cut ofi
these tubes beluw the surface, and
to make it properly effective harrow
at once, i.e., harrow each day's plowing before quitting the field, and to
keep up this condition an earth mulch
must be maintained by barrow ing
frequently enough to prevent tlie
establishment of capillary action in
this surface soil and especially must
this lie done as soon as the soil is
workable after rains.
In the study of soil moisture it is
found that deep plowing permits the
retention in the soil of layer
amounts of waler and iu districts
with similar characteristics to this,
tall plowing is equally important;
added to these summer Ullage in a
system of alternate cropping and fallowing, or cropping twice and fallowing once, and maintaining a dust
mulch. We have, it faithfully followed, the line on which the greatest success ean lie obtained. With the
lighter soils on some of llicse bench
lands the use of a soil packer will be
undoubtedly one of tlie most practical, as much of such soil, unless
packed in some manner, is so loose at
harvest time is to seriously hinder
. the cutting of the crop, as well as
j facilitating a serious loss of mois-
| ture during the season ot growth.
I Ot all crops for dry farming, where
moisture sufficient to germinate is
present, fall wheat and rye present
two of the most satisfactory, al-
■ thoueh the former is most favored
and in case land has been fall plowed and well summer-tilled, and soil
mulched early iu lhe summer, thorc
will rarely lie so little moisture as
to prevent growth bv August. In
soring wheats Emmer. sometimes grown here under lbe name ot
sneltz (which, bv tbe way, is the
name of a somewhat similar, Iml
less valuable and less well known
grain) ami durmen or macaroni
wheat are especially adapted to dry
farming.
Kumer is a very hardy grain tbat
threslus, leaving the busk or eh a It on
the grain, whieh I should judge
would render it verv valuable for
hogs, horses or cattle, as the chaff
would prevent the grain from impacting in the stomach and causing
digestive troubles; being heavily
bearded it is not good for cutting
green Ior bay, and I have not found
fowls  to  eat it    readily, but    as a
coarse grain it does exceedingly well
here and in one respect is ahead of
..uy oilier 1 ever saw. It will stand
all soils of weather when ripe without shedding its grain.
Thc durmer wheats are also ahead
(if ordinary spring wheats here. 1
have grown them side by side, and
llie Macaroni is always ahead. I
find il as very good grain Ior my
purpose t feeding poultry without
threshing). It is a later maturing
trraln than Fvfc wheats, but under
similar circumstances will grow considerably taller and stand much more
drouth and till the head. The seed
is usually hard to lind, as it is not
favored by millers in Canada, hence
il is nol grown in the wheat districts, but il ean u'ways be got ia
Xpo ane. Of all grains the bulless
barleys are most popular with dry
lund farmers, as thev make not onlv
.uud inaiu, but cut green furnish i;
guml supply of bay fodder. To ge
the best resells thev must he sown
at  the very earliest possible.
Hals, if used at all, must be ot
variety selected for short season    of
rioenine and "town under drv conditions fur some years.

.JARVIS-SHAFOR RECITAL.
The Evening Examiner, ol Peterborough, Ontario, has the following
to say of the Jarvis-Shafor recital
to be held in the Auditorium on
Thursday evening, November 1th:
lt the 'coining musical season is al-
tuned to the Key-note struck at ihe
opening concert of the season in St.
■vndrow's ebureli lasi night, a magnificent winter's music is before the
people of Peterborough, Tbe Harold
Jarvis concert was a signal success
m every way and from every point of
regard. The auditorium of Sl. Andrew's was filled with a large audience, appreciative and necessarily enthusiastic. Harold Jarvis has the
same big, rich-toned, wide-rage musical voice, and tiro same splendid
vocal art which have made him a
favorite in a hundred cities on the
continent, and elected him dean—and
"duke"—of tbe concert platform, the
leading vocalist of the country.
His programme numbers last night
and lhe inevitable encores and double
encores carried bim over the full register of musical interpretation, from
the heroic to lhe pathetic. Versatility is a rather frivolous and inexpressive denomination of lbe large
catholicity of bis vocal powers aud
execution, skill and laste. His opening number was Bell rand's setting ot
Tennyson's nobly solemn, "Crossing
tlu- Bar," and the recall number
"Time's Roses" was a gem of vocal
art. His braekettcd selection,
"Heat Upon Mine Little Heart," and
"I Know Two Bright Eyes," exquisitely done in themselves, brought
a recall reply in an "Irish Courtship" sung with such fine spirit and
sensibility that one would think tbe
singer's infant lungs bud tasted the
reek of the peat. By request, the
"Death of Nelson." sumr as onlv Jarvis ean sing if, was substituted for
an aria from Handel's Oratorio ot
Seville, followed, in answer to an
immense recall, by a delightfully
contrasting numlier in stvle and
treatment, "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere." "The Gift"—Behrand—was
a masterpiece of vocal style and carried a double recall, answered by a
splendid production of "Flow Oentlv,
Sweet Alton," quite indescribably
sweet ami tender, followed hy "My
Hn Countrec," an appeal to the
Scotch sympathies of his hearers like
the preceding number "Mv Ain Folk."
A full   and   candid    appreciation in
words of Jarvis' wonderful singing,
would sound fulsome, but it mav
said Ihal last nighl he was in splui-
did fettle—never sang hotter; and
that speaks volumes. lie gave a
tltoroitgbly satisfying performance
and reasserted his artistic standing
and popularity.
.Mrs. ill-ten Wyriek Shafor, the entertainer, made her first how to a
Peterborough audience, in fact made
several hows, lor she was compelled
to repeat all ber programme numbers. Mrs. Shafor is an artist—not
a mere entertainer— refined and widely versatile, her work ranging from a
splendid effective reading of the balcony and potion scenes from Borneo
and Juliet to "How the Froggies Oo
Ask-ep." a delightful treat in the
way ef mimetic interpretation. She
ciii'tund the audience comtdetclv
and was showered wilh encores and
bouquets, which she could accept in
all honesty, for they were richly
earned by her artistic' work in every
tone of tlie gamut of expression.
Mrs. Wyrlck Shafor talked and
laugfr-ed herself into the hearts of
her audience and can be assured of a
warm welcome if she revisits Peterborough.
It woilld be injustice to omit in a
reference to a thoroughly successful
concert, mention of the really excellent manner in which Miss Maude C.
Hradly, directress of lbe concert,
supplied the accompaniments of the
evening.
II is safe to say that no audience
in the eity ever left lhe auditorium
better and more justifiably pleased
than Ihat which filled out of St.
Andrew's last night at tbe elosc of
the Jarvis-Shafor recital.
"TIIE REMITTANCE   MAN."
The   Edmonton   Daily Bulletin has
the following to say of "The Remittance Man" eompanv, which ap-
Pcars at tbe Auditorium tomorrow
(Friday) night:
The Kelly-Swift company, which
scon-d such a decided bit in the com-,
ody drama, "The Remittance Man,"
ill the Edmonton opera borne last
week, left on Sundav for Vegrevlllc,
where tbey plav a two-night engagement before starting on a trip to tho
coast. En route to Vancouver thev
will plav one night stands at Ledue,
Wetaskiivin. Ponoka, Laeomhe,
Stettler, Red Deer, Innisfail, Olds,
Didslniry, Carstairs and Calgary.
The play is a delightful comedy
drama, in which all the members appear to splendid advantage, and in
adtli t ion specialties are Int rodueed
between acts, which make tbe show
tbe best attraction that lias been
seen lu Alberta for several sea-sons.
Tbe eompanv is under the management id Mr. J. Lionel Swift, which
Is the best recommendation the public could ask that the entertainment
is of the first rank in its class.

CORRESPONDENCE
Editor "Thc Cranbrook Herald,"
Cranbrook, B.C.:
Dear Sir.—Would you he kind
enough to allow mc space in your
valuable paper to say a few words
in connection with the liquor -question''
Up to the present time the discussion has been carried on by men who
have no property in the town and
who, if it comes to a "show down,"
could leave the city without inconveniencing themselves in the least.
But it is an entirely diflerent matter
with the people who have invested
their all iu Cranbrook.
Several advocates of Prohibition
ami Local Option have given some
facts and figures showing tlw advantages of dry towns, but it is a
poor rule that will not work both
ways. The Prohibition advocates
show by their figures that everything
is lovely, not only morally, but also
materially, for according to lhe arguments put forth Prohibition gives a
city "better hotels, better streets,
better sidewalks, better fire protection and hetter light," and I presume it increases the population,
lowers the tax rate, and certainly,
according to recent letters published
in Ibis paper, it reduces the number
of arrests aud drunkenness.
Mere is something for property
owners to paste in their hat:
111 one vear of Prohibition In Atlanta, Georgia, lbe rate ot taxation
went up forty per cent,
Here is another well worth considering, especially if you have a little
property ami you last cent is tied
up in the town: .
In Temple, Texas, during the
second year of Prohibition in that
lown, the assessed valuation fell   off
11.1,000.
Still another:
After a year's experience with Prohibition the City Couneil of Providence, ILL, was presented with a
petition representing property to the
value of $1(1,000.000 asking tor the
abolishment of Prohibition and a return to license.
During twenty years ot Prohibition
the population of the State of Kansas dropped from two hundred and
fifteen thousand, three hundred and
twenty more than that ot Minnesota,
to two hundred and eighty-one thousand eight hundred and twenty-nine,
less in the relative scale.
In the year 1907, Kansas under a
Prohibition law, had 128 more convicts, (in more murders and 19 more
paupers to every one hundred thousand inhabitants titan Minnesota,
under a license law.
Then coming to what we shall call
the material conditions ot a ctty
under Prohibition as compared with a
license law, wc find that in 213
American cities working under a Prohibition law, the tax rate is $2.51,
as compared with $1.58 in 5HJ working under a license law. In other
words the rate of taxation is 111 per
cent higher in thc Prohibition cities;
and the towns selected for the above
figures are scattered over 41 different
states.
Mount Vernon, Ohio, went Prohibition in 1903-. The immediate result
was a tremendous jump in tbe rate
of taxes, and in April, 1005, the
question was put to vote again, and
the ratepayers, by an overwhelming
majority, went back to a license
law.
In Liverpool. Ohio, the second year
after Prohibition went into force,
the tax rate went to $2.00, which
was the highest in that city.
In Cambridge, Mass., during the
first five years ot no license law the
arrests for drunkenness increased to
Ifi.'i per month, as compared with an
average of 5(1 per month for the last
eleven years of license law. Arrests for drunkenness have increased
nearly three-fold under a no license
law.
Perhaps some one of the exponents
of Local Option will take thc public
into his confidence and tell us why
the Maine liquor law is not effect ivein Portland.
While it is true that a person cannot erpect to raise a crop of brains
by constantly irrigating his stomach
with whiskey, still a little irrigation
is very beneficial.
I observe that several writers on
the liquor question use a considerable amount of poetry, and probably
tlic following, evidently written by
a member of the "Bed Nose
Brigade," will not lie amiss in this
article:
Now I've been lately thinking,
In my simple sort of way,
About this thing of drinking,
And what the Antis say.
The friends of Local Option
Can make it plain and clear
The cause of human evil
Lies in whiskey, wine and beer;
That man would be angelic,
And free from every sin,
If not for the existence
Of brandy, rum and gin;
That earth would tie a paradise,
A brilliant shining star,
Could they but kill that demon,
The man behind thc bar.
When I was but a toddler,
I heard the story told,
Of how rebellious spirits
Were east from Zton's fold.
I often thought if whiskey
Were the cause of all their ill,
Or whether they wcro tipplers
At some bright "Ktherenl Still;"
Or what were the ingredients,
Tbe color, taste and smell,
or tbe complicated cocktail
['hat sent Lucifer to Hell;
(lr how they hooped lheir barrels
And sealed gigantic jars,
To ship to their retailers,
Thc men behind the bars.
Some look (m Liquor dealers
As the "SCrUII ot Adam's race.
Bereft of all integrity,"
Hut such is not the case.
You'll find as true humanity
Among tho liquor class.
And a grip of hearty welcome
In the band that wipes the glass.
I know whereof I'm speaking,
I write it full of tears,
1 was whiskey's heir apparent
For one and twenty years;
And what  saved me frnm perdition
And lit my guiding star,
Wns a friendly admonition,
From H man behind the bar.
Abandon Local Option,
Promote the Temperance Cause,
Klevale bv education',
And enforce existing laws.
We'll have temperance legislation,
And all llie sooner—when
The friends of Local Option
Become more temperate men.
I'll alwavs work for temperance,
With all my humble worth,
So long as I'm a pilgrim
Upon this wicked earth.
I'll take a Scotch and soda,
Or I'll smoke a mild clarar.
Hut 1 11 never cast reflection
On the man behind the bar.
I might go ou multiplying these
examples to an almost unlimited extent, hut I think the above figures
showing "the effects of Prohibition"
are quite sufficient to offset any
which the friends of tbe other side
have produced. As I have stated,
my figures are just, as reliable as
theirs, and if they prove Prohibition
or Local Option to lie a very good
bllintf, then certainly mine prove with
equally conclusiveness that Prohibition or Local Option is a very bad
thing.
We might go on forever quoting on
bulb sides of this question and yet
never he nearer to unanimity than
we are now, and the plebiscite seems
to -be the only way to settle the
much vexed question of "dry" or
"we!" for Cranhrook.
Thanking yon, Mr. Editor, for your
space and hoping the ratepayers of
Cranbrook generally will take a
little more interest in tbls question.
t remain, yours faithfully,
Ratepayer.
Cranbrook, B.C., Octolier 21th, '09.

FIGHTING LARRY BUCHAN IS DEAD
A fliKlitif'tiislitfl Canadian soldier
n'li'titly I'ussni away, at the ape of
1(2, namely, llriKtiilirr General Buch-
an. lie commenced his military
career by joining tlie Queen's Own
Itilles, Toronto, as art ensign. Ite-
tirilij; from the (Jtuvn's Own in 1881,
he was npuointc'l adjutant of the UOtlt
Itilles, of Winnipeg, with which
corps he served at the outbreak of
tlie Kiel rebellion, 1885, and throughout the subsequent campaign.
His next step up the military ladder occurred in August, 1885, when
lie was appointed to the permanent
force as captain commanding the
.Mounted Infantry, Winnipeg, with the
rank of major. He was transferred
lo the Uoyal Canadian Regiment,
Krederlcton, in Mav, 181)1, and thc
following year was removed to
Toronto.
During the South African war he
was second In command of thc First
Canadian contingent.
At thc time of his death he was
commanding officer of thc military
forces of the 1'rovincc of Quebec.
Concerning his characteristics, a
comrade ollicer says:
"General Hue-ban was deeply versed
In the theoretical part ol military
life and his record ol active service
sneaks for his practical knowledge.
Me was a man under whom it was a
pleasure to servc-an able commander, a thorough soldier, and an excellent administrator. With officers
and men alike he was extremely
popular—nobody more so."

A VISIT TO A POPULAR PLACE
Visitors to this valley all concede
that it Is one ol the prettiest olaeefi
there is on tho North American
continent. We have here the mountains and the mountain streams, the
snow-capped peaks ot the Itockies on
the east, and the Sclkirks on the
west, raisin* in their grandeur to
such heights that those who have
visited the scenic beauties ot the
Alps sav that there is nothing that
will compare with thc scenery ot
South Kast Kootenav- Yet, scenery
is not everything. One must have
comfort nnd cnio'-ment in taking
trips through the mountainous country of British Columbia. Where wil/
vou get it? If vou want to know
get a team from William Kerr ant/
drive up the vallev to that grand
domain that is presided over bv
N. Hanson, well and properly known
as Governor Hanson. Tho people of
Cranbrook who have not spent a day.
a week or a month at Governor Hanson's hotel have '»ade the tnistaku of
their lives. Talk about your treatment, whv the Governor General of
Canada eould stop at Governor Hanson's and have as uood treatment as
lie would receive in Montreal or Otr
tawa. It is simnlv marvelous when
vou consider the fact that awav up
in the wilderness you can find ar
liotel that is equipped as good as
anv hotel that vou can find in anv
of the cities along the Crows Nest
Pass. His house is furnished with
tho latest conveniences, Mr. Hanson
himself is thc -"-Ince of hosts and
when visitors come to his plaee he
exerts himself to mako ihem comfortable and hannv. Not onlv Mr.
Hanson, hut everv one around his
establishment seems to be imbued
with tlie same idea and that tells the
storv of tbe reason ihat last Sunday
night eighteen people from Cranbrook sat down to a magnificent
meal in bis dinine room and enioved
■i service that could not ho excelled
in anv hotel in Western Canada. If
eou want to have a dav or two's out-
imr. if vou want to see nature as
nature is huiit. if vou want, to know
what life is inthe opening, po to
Wasa and spend a day, or a week, or
\ month with Governor Hanson.

veretl that tlie chief reason for nnhnppi.
neei in the homes are had cooking, insufficient heating, and lark of washing

the uiihnppinesFcnn be easily avoided
by purchasing a Moffat Stove and insisting ihat all meals be cooked on it;
the X-RAYS further suggestb tiint lhe
heat ing difficulty can be overcome in
several ways, either by installing a hot

in Uic city.   Tlm Imr if Rtippifari with ilia bent of Mquora Hini Cigaia
K iii napping, a ili'spcratc race
through the streets, culmimitiiiK in
Uir hunted man jumping into a mill
dam with his IHtiTii-inoiiUis-old baby
girl in his arms, are some o! tlte incidents uf a tragic affair, which caused much sensation at Oldham recentlv. Tlie man, whose name is llesker
Lovell, rushed into a house where the
Kill lived with her mother and <Taud-
mot-hcr, seized the child, and raced
with her in his arms through some
hack streets tu a mill dam. Some
neighbors saw him and followed, but
before they reached tlie dam Lovell
had climbed the wall—-1 ft. ti in.
hi ah—surmounted it, and was found
with lhe child in the water. A ropo
was at once procured, and bv it the
man was dragged out. The child,
however, sank, and her hodv was recovered hv the police about an hour
afterwards. The mother of the
child, Mary Ann Lovell, aged twenty,
lulii a pathetic store ut the coroner's
Inquests She stated that she was
now separated from her husband, ami
was living with her mother. She
was married to him in l-Klli, and thev
lived happily together iu a caravan,
Iter husband being a gvpsv, until the
child was three mouths old. The
ilnlil was then too heavy for her to
carrv about, and she wished to leave
llie babv with her husband's mother,
hut he would uot allow it unless she
signed it over to his mother. Witness would not agree to that, and she
went to live with her mother. He
had threatened on one occasion to
have the child by fair or foul means,
ami ou another occasion he picked a
knife up and said he would stick it
through both the child's and her own
heart. "The last time I saw him,"
added Mrs. Lovell, "lie picked u« the
child ami kissed it passionately and
-rave it. a shilling." Her husband
thought a great deal of the child,
and was verv fond of it. He was
ne'er happy unless it was in his
presence,      Lovell was   subsequently
'cmanded on a charge of wilful murder ut the local police court.
A peculiar case of a mau preteiui-
ing ijjui. lie was humid aim ga--*giu u>
iMugiars, while he lumscu was uic
iiuet, tame tii'iuiu a i-ontluu police
cuiitL recently. Leonard IJaiawm,
*,■!-.: uccuscu, was a baiuSuiuii nan <*.
lai^e housu-turnisiiing arm* aud wa*.
i-iiargeU with stealing iftti. Tne evidence showed that ou the duy of the
alleged burglary thu prosecutor lcti
tus shop iu ilie charge uf the prisoner. When he returned the shop was
empty, uut there was a i.nuckiug
overhead. The manager went upstairs, where he found Baldwin lying
upon the Hour bound hand and toot.
He was apparently ia the greatest
ni stress, uud was gasping lot
breath owing to a haiidkerchict being
in his mouth, which was kept iu
place hy another handkerchief tied
round the head and face. Lying
ou the lloor were the prisoner's collar and liis watch aud chain. The
peculiar thing was that Baldwin was
lying in a very small space and surrounded by a quantity.of glassware.
There were, no signs of a struggle,
and thc glassware was undisturbed.
11 was found that thc handkerchiefs
came away quite easily, and thc
ropes were tied in such a way that
the prisoner could have released himself tiad he desired. His explanation
wus that a tall man had come into
the shop and gone upstairs to examine a bedstead. Thc man, he said,
struck him a violent blow in the
stomach nnd followed with another
in the same spot, which rendered him
unconscious. He remembered no
more. Fifty-six pounds fifteen
shillings had been taken from the
safe, tlie key of which had been left
by tiie prosecutor in his coat, which
was hanging in thc shop. A doctor
who was called found nothing the
matter with the prisoner. Suspicions were aroused, and two davs later the stolen money was found concealed in an outhouse, and the prisoner was arrested.
How u gentlemanly rascal duped au
uiu laiiy was recounted at the I'dei-
iiuioiigu police court recently. A
mau calling himself "Captain Hau-
icigu," called al Werriiigton Hall, a
country house near i-eterborough,
ami, asking fur Mrs. Mulling, said lie
wished lo sec her about buying, tlte
nail and estate, for lhe sale of which
she iiad been negotiating with a local
gentleman. He carried a handbag,
which was subsequently found to be
tail uf apples, Purchase terms were
arranged, "Captain Hadleigh" agreeing lo make a deposit uf £i,IHiu, ailing the war ollice and a London
nauk, to which he wrote authorizing
ibe transfer of the money, as references. He ordered extensive altera-
liuns for lhe accommodation of his
nine hunters, and, sending tu 1'eter-
1-oiough for a motor car, drove Miss
Moiling into the citv and returned
wilh her after giving orders to a
number ol 1'eterlHirough tradesmen.
He was entertained for two days ul
the hall, aud ou the Sunday lie ordered the motor cur again, lo go to
Stamford "to dine with Captain
Phillips." He drove away wrapped
iu Mrs. Morliug's handsome rugs, and
nothing mure was heard of him,
neither was the hire of the motor
car paid for. When he had gone,
Miss Morling missed her Jewel case,
containing a gold watch and chain, a
pearl and t uni noise brooch, a gold
pendant, gold rings, locket, and other
valuubles/ The case had been taken
from her bedroom. Thc thief was
subsequently arrested ami committed
for trial.
A remarkable case was that of William Chester, who pleaded not guilty
lo a charge of maliciously damaging
27,000 gallons of vinegar, valued at
£1,200. According to the prosecution, tlte accused was employed at a
vinegar factory, where he had charge
of thu vats, and generally acted as
foreman. He had acted in that capacity for some years, and was allowed rooms, gas and coals free. He
was recently informed that his rooms
would he absorbed In the extension of
tlie premises, whieh the firm bad In
contemplation, but extra money
would lw allowed him for the payment of rent. A few days later the
vats were examined and vinegar to
the extent of 27,000 gallons tound to
he missing. The prisoner was alleged to have said: "All right, 1 know
I have done It; you have given mc
notice that you want my rooms,
haven't you? When yoti get mo oat
of my rooms you are going to  sling
me out of the place, aren't you? Su
I've been preparing for it." Thc
suggestion of the prosecution was
thut the accused had run ull the vinegar down thc drains. Found guilty,
tlie prisoner was sentenced tu six
months' imprisonment.
A remarkable story of a second
draco Darling comes when the wind
blows high, the sea rim-s in a fashion tu daunt stout men s hearts. A
steamship while proceeding to Hox-
dalc from Jarrow, struck the rocks
Staithes, Whitby, at 8.30 at night.
The lifeboat was got out, huh was
very much delayed on account ot the
slipway being broken. The rockets
were quickly requisitioned, and had to
be carried a great distance, but arrived it llie ship lirst. Miss Mary
Verrill readily volunteered to take
her fa* tier's plnee in tlie rocket brigade, us he was in the lifeboat, ami
she did her wm'; splendidly. She
rushed intu thf sea. the water being
up to her waisl, ami with the rocket
men she pulled at the tucket lines for
all she was worth. II is not I lull 1st brave acl Miss Verrill bus done.
Wlwn tin- brig Klise went ashore she
went inlo the raging sea up to her
chest and helpnl her fishermen comrades to rescue the crew. I hie
sailor she took iu her arms and helped lo enrrv bim to the inn at
"-*■"-i-lips. The heroic girt is Hie idol
of the neighborhood, the fishermen
calling her another "Qraco Darling."
A terriiic explosion occurred at
DistingLon liouwoihs, neat' WorKington, recently, causing damage isil-
maied ai £40,000, and so wieuivim
Lhe place thai worii will la- suspended
for some months, throw ing .t..-.*...
two hundred men out of worn, tilcven
gas-lired boilers were used at ten
works tu generate steam lor blowing
the engines which supply the furnaces
with the blast, and it is supposed
that there was au explosion of gas.
Tlie report was terriiic ami the el-
feet disastrous. Three of the boilers
were blown into fragments, while a
fourth was found in a held a considerable distance away. Tbe boiler is
reported to havu lluwn through thu
air al a terriiic spued, at a height of
about liO feet, "just like an aeroplane." Part, of another butler
crashed into thc litters' and blacksmiths' mill, bricks and stunes were
shot up as high as the wurks chimney and then rained down on the
works yard and the high road leading
into the village. About fifty men,
mostly fillers and pig-lifters, were
working at the front and back of the
blast furnaces, a hundred yards away,
at thc time, but they all had a remarkable escape from injury.
Kor over a mouth a pretty little
uoy, Arthur Ewers, aged three, has
been missing at Asscudon (Bueittng-
hamshire). The other afternuun tbu
little fellow was fuund dead in a
bean field by a local farmer. Thu
field was only about a quarter of a
mile trom thu spot where thu child
was last seen. Tlie circumstances
are pathetic. Oue day his father and
mother went into thc fields to work,
laking their child with them. About
four o'clock in the afternuun he hud
disappeared, and his parents searched
everywhere without avail. Dr. McClurc, un making a post-mortem examination, stated that everything
pointed to the fact that death was
due to exhaustion and exposure. The.
little fellow had wandered among
the growing beans, could nut find bis
way out, and had sunk down and
starved to death.
Thc tragic story of workmen's unavailing struggle to prevent a comrade from being burled beneath tailing sand was related at an inquest
at Whittlcle-Woods on the hody ot
tivan Rultcr, of Chorlcy. George
Summer and George H. Gerrard told
the jury that in company with Hut-
ler they were working in a sandholu,
when Summer, seeing the sand tailing down, shouted a warning. Hu
then seized Hutter bv the shoulders
and tried to drag him away from
danger, but the sand fell upon them,
and, striking Hutter's feet swept
liim away face downwards. Summer was also buried up to the waist,
but Gerrard pluckily seized him und
pulled him out of danger. Thc two
men then set to work to release
flutter, and, although aided by a
gang of workmen, they could not re-
icac Hutter until lite was extinct.
The body had been huried under
about forty tons ot sand.
Three school children -were killed
instantaneously and several others
seriously injured by a "runaway"
traction engine at Rothcrham recently. The children ol the junior and
infants' department of a school in St.
Anne's road were leaving just after
four o'clock, when a motor haulage
engine was taking a load of bricks
up the steep gradient. Thc engine
suddenly commenced running back
down the incline, and thc driver,
realizing that a serious accident must
happen if it went to the bottom of
the hill, tried to turn the locomotive
into u side road. The engine turned
into the rond. hut in negotiating the
corner eras-bed through the school
wall aiming a group of children, three
of whom were instantly killed. Four
others were badly injured, two of
them, so seriously that thete nre
grave doubts as to their recovery.
Stealing a diamond ring worth
till from his sweetheart hy means of
a t rick, was the charge against.
Thomas Krikins, who appeared al a
London police court recently. Thc
prosecutrix said that Kdkins introduced himself to her In Southampton How. They met several times
afterwards, and there was some conversation about an engagement to
marry. One evening she took the
ring she was wearing from her finger
and showed it to Rdkins. He appeared to replace thc ring, but after
he had left she discovered that he had
substituted for It another ring ot a
worthless character. Thc evidence
showed that thc value of tne substituted ring was 18 pence, and that
the original article had lieen pawned
for £4.
CURE THAT OBSTINATE SORE.
Chronic sores whieh cause trouble
by "breaking open," may lie cured by
Zam-Buk, as well as recent injuries
aud diseases. If you suffer from
some old sore—-hidden, perhaps, but
none the less painful for tliat—don't
dally, apply Nature's healing essences
as provided in Zam-Buk, Mrs. I. E.
Ashton, ot Ul Vickets Street, Kort
William, Out., tells how valuable
Zam-Buk is as a family balm. She
savs: "Wo first used Zam-Buk for
cuts and bruises, etc., and found it so
satisfactory that my husband started using it tor a chronic sore. Kor a
long time he had heen bothered with
nu old sore on his leg, aud had used
various preparations, yet nothing
had permanently cured it. He began
applying Zam-ltuk balm, aud was
very soon agreeably surprised to notice a great improvement.
"ll was onlv a matter uf a short
time before Zam-ltuk had thoroughly
cleuusnl the sore of all foul matter
nml healing commenced, It is now
si.me months since the sore was com-
pletelv lined, ami there is no likelihood ot it breaking out again.
"Since then my baby, eighteen
months old, has been euml ot eczema, ringworm, ulcers, cuts, bums.
eczema came in red pimples, uud if
rubhed or scratched, formed into
sores. The child was very fretful
from the irrigation of the scalp, hut
whenever Zam-Huk was applied it
seemed to bring the greatest relict.
Frequent applications were effective
in clearing all traces uf the disease
[rom the baby's scalp in a short
space of time. I feel it my duty tu
give tlie credit where due, and 1
cheerfully recommend Zam-lluk to all
sufferers from chronic sores, bad leg,
or eczema."
Zam-Buk is Nature's own ltenling
halm, being composed of pure herbal
essences. It is a sure cure for eczema, tingworm, ulcers, cuts, burns,
poisoned sores, chronic wounds, bad
leg, piles, festering sores, chapped
hands, cold sores, frost bite, and all
skin injuries and diseases. Druggists and stores everywhere sell at
ride, a box, or post free tor price
frnm Zam-lluk Co., Toronto; 3
boxes $1.25. You are warned
against harmful imitations represented to be "just as good."

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
The best biography—the life that
writes charily iu the largest tetters.
Children need love, tenderness and
sympathy as much as flowers need
air and sunshine.
A happy family is but nn earlier
heaven.
There never was a woman but was
jusl aching to tell some other woman how lo do up her hair.
Tlie reason why women do not propose is supposed to he due to the
fact that they want to have the last
word.
lt is worth a thousand dollars a
year to have the habit uf looking on
the bright side of things.
To bring pleasure and contentment into every life is the best
wav to fill our town with bcautv.
To make home happy is an art—an
art a good many people have either
lost or never found.
There is nothing gained in the government uf children by threatening
that whieh is not performed.
Men can he tound who are willing
tu go to Africa as missionaries who
are not willing to take care ot a
cross baby fur the tired wife for half
an hour.
Train your eyes to rest on the
brightest spots in life. Pass the
darkness on the other side. One of
the sunniest places on earth is the
spot made sacred bv the hallowed
influences of those we love in our
homes.
Thc time to have the brightest
lamps lit, the hottest supper ready,
to wear the gayest dresses and hunt
up the funniest stories in one's memory, is the cold, rainy night, when
there will nut he any company, but
when the home-coming husband, sons
or brothers will doublv enjoy the
cheer.
The father who is "chummy" with
his boy, gets down to that eager, inquiring,, restless little soul and explains aud encourages, does not need
to cut a birch gad in order to maintain discipline; and thc mother who
sympathizes, cuddles and plays with
her children cun keep her slippers on
her feet and her hair brush on tlie
dressing table. Children need love
and svmpathy as much as flowers
need air and sunshine.
The best way to keep lhe boys at
home is to make it au object for

The grinding of thc glacien and llie ttoiim of ihew lui!*'ilcnt i
ilreami bring down rocki, land and gravel from the mountain dc-Jlhi ,
ond faitneuet where man has never yet penetrate!
In a region wheie ledje* of Cold-bcaroj Quartz ate a promine*it I
feriluic in lhe fnrmo'ion, it ii natural thai l!ic .e f ji^c-i of Nature should [
lear away quantities of exceedinjly rich materill.
This procea has been going on lor ago, Thc hidden stores of j
Cold away in the hills are inexhaustible.
The rush of lhe torrents is eo im,«tuom tint even b-mUr-rs of ;
considerable size are borne in lheir course, and only when Nature
list spent herself do ihey find a resting place.
The broad creeks   lhe wider reaches of thc river—OUiel the
itre-tm, and the Gold, in the form ol nu-jgeli, grrtmj ana flake*, |
lapidly tellies.   Gold is very heavy—heavier llian lhe rock iiwlf, and :
once il findi a resling place, sifts down through the light suiface mud
■nd sand until, by force of Gravity, it re icfw* bed rock.
Where ihe courses ofttreaftuMve been changed, theHcheil Placet
Mines are found in their old beds. Bui in tlic larger, cocutaiil streams,
these rich deposits are beyond lhe reach of merely human a -encies.
It remaim for lhe Gold Dredge   following lhe heavy nuggeti !
and particles ol Gold down thiou:h tlic overlying itriU lit th«Mu :
and benches of the river, to recover these stores of Guld from lhe
treasure-Iimiic of Nature.
The Ions arms of the Dredge, with their endlc-t chains of buckci j
sr-K>pi, aearcli down, down -throujh sixty feel of water, sand and j
Ctavel.il need be-until lhe Gold sediment, and finally bed rock itielf, j
oflen overlaid with an actual coverlet of pure Gold- the hotidod :

The Cold Dredge biinji j;i lliis material in wholesale -ju.intiiies
—lieils it wilh Kienlific accuracy to   save   llie   (inert   particles  of;
vnlue-KnarateilhB -frou—and for lhe first lime lays bare lo lhe hand

While personally present on nur properly nt Stewart River, I
Yukon Territory, Klondike, September 1st, I saw with   my   own
eyes a clean-up from our first and smaller dredge,  netlinc* $317.50.
end this was preceded only a few daya by another clean-up from
Ilieume dredge amounlinr[lo $1263.66 in Gold.   I saw ihis Gold,
Khcred from the gold-saving laUei of our Diedije, moulded inlo
lion—a solid bar of Gold.
Wilh such results In tight, we are bending ev«*ry effort to gel Iwcnly
of thete mammoth Dredget at work on our properly.   This summer,
our second dredge went on—larger and itronjcr than the liirt -and is
already at work.
We control by direct lease from the Canadian Covemmenl. One
Hundred and Five (103) miles of Dredgable Gravel on tlie Slewart
River, eighty miles from Dawson Cily, in the Klondike. We have
tc-td ihe gravel Ihoioughly wilh Drills, and it has been proven rich
lhrou-*hout. As a matter of fact, the site of our holdings was recognized,
even before the Gold Rush in 1898, to be rich in Gold-it is a
matter of public record that thc Gold is there—but so loealed as to be
diliicult to obtain by any hand method. And Fifty dredget could
nol exhaust this arci in a Hundred years.
With a proposition so rich, the payment of dividends and the
continued work ol development can easily go fund in hand.
1 o hurry this work of development now, we are marketing Treasury Slock in our Company. Three thousand stockholders, many of
ilicm wdi-known in thc Canadian country, aie alreadv on our books.
Thii necessity for Capital -a Dredge costs upwards of $100,000
furnishes your opportunity to partki;>*lc in a wondeifully rich venture.

LlikKALi NA.it DELEGATES
A largo and enthusiastic meeting ol
the Liberals of Craubrook was held
at tlic Edison theatre last Tuesday
evening, J. F. Huchcroft was called
to tho chair and A. L. McDcrmot
was named as Secretary, Mr. Huch-
eroft, brielly stated the nature of the
meeting, and called cm Dr. J. 11.
Kins. M.I'.l'., as the representative
of Uii.s riding to address the meeting. The doctor was received with
great enthusiasm atid made one of
Ins characteristic talks. In fact the
doctor excelled himself in the spetvb
that he made as never before in his
political career as he delivered a
speech like the one that be gave on
that occasion. He took up the
policy of the McHride government m
the past and attacked in the most
vehement manner the new railway
policy enunciated bv Mr. MeBride,
paving special attention to the fact
that two of the most prominent
ministers, Messrs. Tatlow and Fulton bad resigned from the cabinet
for the reason that thev could not
coincide with Mr. McBride's arrangements with the Canadian Northern.
The doctor bas been in the local nar-
llament for a number of vears and is
lhoroi-**hIy conversant with the situation, and without the question of a
doubt a' stronger political speech
bas never been delivered in the city
of Cranbrook than the one made by
him on that occasion.
Strong talks were made bv R. E.
Heattie and Frank Angers, outlining
the duty of the Liberals in this province, and F. E, Simpson made a few
remarks.
