district, and ono ot tiro most progressive of tin* old-timers of tin Koote

time boosting Creston and Kast Kootenay'
Mr. I.nmont, who owns 1200 acreH
of choice fruit lands in the Creston
district, has this year planted 28011
fruit trees on liis lands. Those fruit
trees art- composed oi the Delicious,
Mcintosh Red and Wagner apples. Tin*
Delicious apple is tho highest priced
apple in the valley.
This year has been a banner year
for the Creston district, over thirty
cars of tlie fruit being shipped to Alberta markets. Among (be principal
shippers are Messrs. Stocks am!
Jackson, Frank Rose, W. K. Hrown,
tlie Dow BroB. and others. Mr. La-
mint says that some of the old orchards this season yielded twenty to
thirty boxes ol apples lo the tree,
while the younger trees averaged six
to eight boxes.
One of the oldest fruit growers of
New York has recently sent an order
to the provincial minister of agriculture for fifty-live carloads of non-
irrigated apples. The minister of
agriculture referred lhe order to
Creston, but as most of tbe orchards
there are young, the order could not
be filled.
•Several of Calgary's millionaires
have recently become interested
Creston fruit lands and much good to
the district is expected to result
from this fact.
In th:' Creston district tlie winterkilled fruit trees arc unknown, this is
owing to the fact that the climate is
of an even temperature and the coldest weather seldom exceeds zero.
Mr. Lamotil says that any man
who applies himself ran make n great
success of fruit growing at Creston.
Imagine in. orchards ten years old
where the average yield per tree is
say fifteen boxes of apples at $1.50
per box means S22.50 per tree, and
sixty trees per acre means nearly
Sl.'lOO per acre.

A special meeting ol tho Cranbrook
Poultry and Pot Stork association
was held in lhe old gymnasium building Friday evening last to make final
arrangements for the provincial
Poultry show, which is being held at
Grand Forks, opening on December
This is the lirst time the show has
been secured by thc Interior and inland poultrymen are putting forth
every effort to make this exhibition a
success, as it will to a large extent
determine Whether or not tlie inland
people will have another show.
A number of birds were brought
alon;| by members and were examined
strictly according tc thc Standard of
Perfection, Rev. W. E. Dunham
handling the birds.
As a result of this meeting Cranbrook will be well represented at thc
Provincial show. About fifty hirhs
will be sent and a number of local
fanciers will attend and look after
Ihe birds. E. II. Slater, II. Pig-
gott and A. I). Smith will be among
those attending from Cranbrook,
Kntries close on December 2nd. It
is up to everyone who intends to exhibit at Grand Forks to get busy.

The following communication has
been sent by a Cranbrook man to tbe
Nelson Daily News and as it touches
two questions of vital importance to
this city and district, we reproduco
in full: '
Sir: I was at a public meeting on
November llth, part of a report of
which was reported in your papr
but nothing was said about what,
my mind, was the most important
matter discussed, and that was the
"truck system" of payment of workmen. As a working man with many
others I was intensely interested
when tbe member of parliament for
the dislrict explained that the working man under British Columbia law
is entitled to cash payment every
fourteen days and tliat he has not tbe
power to sign away that right, ami
even if he did sign an agreeim'tvl he
tan still de-maud payment for bis
work every fourteen days. I am a
working man witb a large family and
like many others have but a little
laid by, I ean obtain wrrk from Ihe
wealthy lumber manufacturers if 1
will agree to taU* my wages next
May. Meanwhile what is my family
to exist uiHin. Merchants cannot afford to run the risk of giving us
credit, Sueh as we, liave helped to
make the lumberman rich; many
drive Iheir motor cars, live iu luxury, give banquets to boards of
trnde cos-ting thousands, ami, it is
siiid. their tens of thousands to politicians, is this thc reason they are
permitted to break, the law and oppress the pot r tollers?
Among many other Interesting matters discussedi none of which were
mentioned by your reporter, wns the
subject of the Impossibility of po.u
men obtaining land rs homesteads in
Iiriiish Columbia, which requires pro
ilucers (.n ils barren wastes, yet wc

ing with timber holdings, there can
lie no question but Ihe Yellowhead
Pass Lumber company has a quite
except tonally favorable balance sheet' lkma1' Uw
to present to their lucky shareholders.
In the years 190*11-7 tbe company acquired some seventy-five limits on
Willow river, Ptarmigan creek and
Goat river iu the valley of tlte Fraser river between Fort George and
Tete .laune Cache. Some idea of
the density of the growth can be
formed from lho fact that eleven of
the limits on Goat river have lieen
cruised to cut over one hundred and
twenty-five million feet. The main
line of tbe G.T.P. passes through
those limits and tomb closely upon
another big bunch belonging to the
company on Ptarmigan creok some
ono hundred miles nearer to Fort
George. The completion of the Panama Canal nni the certain prospect
of being able to ship a deal of the
product of those limits via the Canal
to the eastern seaboard of the States
enhances the remarkable value of all
the company's property. Of course,
all this was seen at the time the
berths were acquired, but a load involving an expenditure of well over
$8,0000 per annum for license fees,
fire protection, surveying, etc., required powers of financing of a whole-
souled am! enthusiastic character. But
those concerned, the directors, that
is, fought on in the face of the direst
discouragement and now have the
satisfaction of being able to show
that they have over half a million
dollars in e\e,*ss of their liabilities;
that outside tlwir indebtedness to tbe
members of the company tbey owe

enough to discharge lhe license fees

Meeting nf the board of trade has
been called for Friday evening at the
city ball when it is hopid that a
large and representative attendance
will be on hand to transact the business which will come before the meeting. The executive has been working
on the matter of luncheons and will
have a report to make to the meeting.
There arc a large number of important subjects in connection with
the work of the board during the
coming year on which it is desired
full discussion by all citizens.
During the past year the hoard of
trade lias been inactive, the work
that has been done falling on a very
few. Thc scope of the board of
trade comprises matters of importance to every citizen residing in
Cranbrook and it should In* not only

A. Gaskill, formerly of
nnd now residing with
his family at Fort George, was tlie
moving spirit in the original acquisition of the timber and the formation
of the company nnd still remains one
of those most largely interested in it.
To the remarkable courage and financial ability of the president, Mr. A.
Carney, of Kaslo, must he attributed
the surccss of tne company. There
were times in plenty, in tbe early
days especially, when bis hand alone
saved the ship in the deep water*
while very wise men stood safe on
shore, knowing all that was at stake,
and waited and watched for a chance
oi profit ing by what wreckage might
come ashore. However, the venture
has come into port without a plank
being started and those who cast
iheir bread upon the waters find their
profil three hundred fold.
It Is not often lhat a legitimate
Opportunity arises for offering congratulations, but they appear to be
in order in this case.
The head office of the company is
here in Cranbrook. The directorate
consists of Messrs. A. Carney, Kaslo, B.C., president; l-cster Clapp,
Cranbrook, vice-president; Louis
Johnson, Marysville; Charles A
Cock, Cranhrook; Arthur II. Fenwick,
Fort Steele ami Joseph Ryan, police
magistrate, Cranhrook, managing director and secretary.
In view of the. approaching inauguration of the parcels post system in
Canada it is somewhat encouraging1
to learn that a year's trial of a
similar system in the United States ■
has brought returns far beyond their
best expectations. When, some ten
or eleven months ago, thoy took final
steps in the direction of adopting the
system, tliey were assailed by grave
doubts as to Whether the service
would prove of real benefit lo the
puhlic and whether tb*' public would
be able to support It, owing to the
fact lhat it must give people the advantage of moderate rates.
They have their answer already in
the term of dollars, the term of service having already brought in au
immense profit with a proi^is* of
some thirty million dollars lo the
good at the close of the year. These
figures indicate that the service has
paid from the very lirst and will
continue to pay. Kven when they
have satisfied the railway companies'
claim to a share in the profit, they
wlll reap an immense harvest, as ten
of the thirty millions will not make a
noticeable depression in their gains.
Experience has shown the necessity
of a readjustment with the railway
companies, who claim that they are
not adequately paid for carrying the
mails. American public sentiment
favors a generous treatment of tlu*s
companies and it is Mieved that thc
continued growth of the parcels posh
service will more than defray any ad
ditional cost entailed thereby.
What the rates are to be for the
seven zones into which Canada Is to
be divided are not yet known, hut
if they achieve results anywhere commensurate with those of the United
States, the Canadian express companies will have some cause for bitter
reflection upon their past highhandedness in thc matter of their small par-
cell business and ihey writ], no doubt,
be more willing to please tbeir customers.
There are gre.it latent possibilities)
in tbe parcels post system, and a daW
may come wl.cn it will be not only |
an inter-Dominion asset but will assume the proportions of an intcr-con-
tinental service.
every citizen feels an interest and all
work together fur the common weal
of the city.
With a live organization comprising
a majority of all citizens no one
could estimate tin* amount of good
work that could he accomplished in
even one year. Factories could he
encouraged, pressure brought on railroads for needed transportation facilities, settlcss induced to locate on
the very desirable lauds of the district and the city made more hospitable to the stranger within tlie
gates and therefore, a stronger center
for drawing the trade from an ever-
increasing, growing and widening
area of thc district. Koads, brid-
ges, farmer's and lumbermen's problems and the development of the mineral resources are all live subjects
for discussion at hoard of trade meetings. Let all get together and boost
and in a year surprise will lie manifested at the progress made.
Kndowed with a richness of resource surpassed by none, with undeveloped fields in eVery line of activity, which, If known to thc outside
world, would mean a great foregathering of new people in th's- i.islrict,
Cranbrook offers the liest advantages
of any section of Kast Kootenay, if
not of Hritish Columbia or th* entire
of Western Canada. It lies within
the province of tlie hoard of trade to
gather thc facts, to itemize the.resources and to give to prospective
newcomers the Information wanted,
and to constantly keep before thc
public ihe opportunities liere afforded
in such a comprehensive way that
they must appeal to the home seeker,
who is looking for the promised land

On account of unit rest-en circumstances the concert to be given by
the Cranbrook city band was postponed from tonight until next Tuesday evening, December 2nd, 1913,
when tiie concert will be given *t tbe
Young Men's Club building. Tbe band
Is assisted in their musical program
by the following ladies and gentlemen: Mrs Maurice Quain. Mrs. Ira
It. Manning. Miss Margart-t Kt-nnedy,
Miss Ruth Stevens and Mi*>sr!,. A.
Raworth, G. S. Iloutharu, II. D.
Cameron and H. Darling.
The concert will consist of vocal
solos an-1 duetts, readings, clarionet
solo and selections by the band Tbe
concert will start promptly at $.30
The purpose of givinR the cona-rt is
to raise funds for the maintenance of
the band during the winter months
when there are no engai^em<-nts to
meet the usual t-vpenses. If tlv band
disbands for a few months much valuable time is wasted and the players
lose much of the value of their
summer practice. If th'- band can
lie held together with steady practices during the winter, a much better
class of music will result next year.
For this concert the band has pre-
pared a special programme of classi
eal music and an* giving one of the
hest concerts ever heard in Cranbrook by the local hand. It is hoped
that the citizens will give the concert their beartv support and thus
encourage the members of the band
to continue to e\ert Ihemselves for
the rendition of hetter music.

ami mountain hiinlicrmeii associations and officials of llie forestry department are considering proposals'
for a new royalty basis, whieh, if ac-
irpiali.e, will probably be put inlo

Next time you step into the corner
store, take a look around. Of all the
articles on the shelves, how many were
on your shopping list five years ago ?
Make it ten years, and you will find
that most of things you buy to-day—
and could not do without—were not
even made then.
You men and women who buy
things, let this sink in. You are better
men and women because of advertising. You eat more wholesome food.
You wear better clothes. Your home
is better furnished. You have cleaner
and more sanitary houses. You read
better books and magazines. You seek
more healthful amusements.
Isn't life brighter because we have
new and higher standards of living?

The Dominion government now lias

miles of foresl lands, and there i^

federal management, being established in other parts id Canada in tho
near future. This being the ease, it
should he Of interest tn consider what
we may expect to gain from the
puhlic ownership of largo timber resources. p*or aa answer to 'his
question we may turn lo the national
forests of ihe United State) and soo
what advantages have accrued from
the administration by the forest service of a vast estate, ten times larger than the present reserves under
Dominion control.
Briefly enumerated, these* advantages are: I
1. The value ot the forests is now
Increasing witli use instead of depreciating.
2. More wood is grown per annum
ihan is lost through cutting, lire, disease and decay.
8. Whenever timber is cut', ih.*
operation is so conducted that young
growth will mil lie destroyed, thereby
assuring a now crop in the future.
1. The opening of roads, fire lines
and trails, nnd the construction of
telephones, lookout stations and rangers' houses, is making an effective
system ol fire patrol possible,
G. Operators of small lumber mills
are encouraged, except in Inaccessible
areas whose development involves a
heavy outlay of capital.
fl. Speculation in, and monopoly
nf, pubfic timber are prevented.
7. Abuse of   homestead and
Hectors' privileges is prevented.
8, Settlement    is encouraged
lands of   the right character,
prohibited on non-agricultural areas.
S. Settlers get wood and timber
for their own use, free of charge.
10. Every settler's clearing is an
aid in fighting fire.
11. Agricultural lands covered
with heavy timber are quickly cleared—not held for speculation—and
ihrown open for settlement.
12. Sheep, cattle and hogs arc pastured in suitable openings in the
13. the old warfare betweem sheep
and cattle ranchers is put a stop to.
14. Erosion, caused hy removal of
surface cover, ie checked.
15. Water supply is conserved for
irrigation and waterpower projects.
lfi. Pests — insects, rodents and
beasts nf prey — are more effectively

During the past six months when
Canada, iu common with the world,
was passing through a period ol financial stringency, a great deal of
emphasis was laid upon Canada's so-
called adverse balance of trade. It
was pointed out that this country
presented one of tho most dangerous
fields in the world owing to thc wonderful prosperity and expansion which
had characterized her during the previous dozen years. There was a
general belle! expressed hy Canada's
critics that the pendulum would
swing in the opposite direction and
lhal this country would suffer severely from business depression. To substantiate Iheir arguments, they j
pointed out the Inrgc excesB ot Im-
porls over exports nnd concluded
therefrom that Canada bad a heavy
adverse balance of trade. It was
pointed out thai for the fiscal year
IDia-lS our Imports totalled 1691,-
048.615, while our exports were hut
litlle more than half, amounting to
Admitting the  truth    ot tho arguments that    Canada had   an adverse
balance of trade, it is interesting, to
note thai in the next six months   of
Ihe fiscal yenr     1(113-11, which ended
30th September    last Canada's total
trade amounted   lo $551,»78,000    as
compared with $580,2(15,00(1 (or    the]
corresponding six months of the prev-
s   year.     The    chief   point to be
emphasized,   however,   was the relation of imports to exports. For  the
six months   just ended,    our exports
have, boon   growing taster    than our
imports.       The  exports for the six
months af the present year amounted
to   $211,000,000 as    compared  with
$178,(100,000    for   the corresponding
period of 11112, or an increase of $33,-
000,000.      During thn   .same period,
our   imports   only    increased   from
$328,000,000 to   Mto.iino.iino, again
of hut $12,000,000.     For the month]
of September itself, this tendency   isj
even more marked.    While our total"
trade increased from $87,000,000    to'
$1)5,000,000, imports actually declln-1
ed from $57,000,000     to $54,000,000,1
while exports   showed a gain of from
$20,0110,000:10 $41,000,000.    In other'
words, the   adverse balance of trade, \
