INVERMERE, June 22.—Alexander
Klnbasket, oue of the beat known Indians of the district who made iiis
home ou the Shuswap Indian reserve
three miles from here, was killed last
night by a kick on tho head from a
horse he was helping to break. Klnbasket is a grandson of the original
Klnbasket, an Indian who migrated
into this part from the Shuswnp reserve on tho main line of the Canadian
Pacific  Huilwny at Shuswap lako.
He was a hurd-worklng Indian, lie
loaves a widow nnd a large family of
young children behind him-
Departing from their custom of late
years, when they have been meeting
at Calgary, feeling that by doing s
ihey might get into closer touch with
the prairie situation, Hie Mountain
Lumbermen's Association is (his week
met ting nl Chase, lil'.. on Ilie SIllL
wiip Lake, Por two days the members
of the Association and tlieir wives
will lie the guests of the Adams Ttlver
Lumber Co., al chase, which is operating one uf tiie largest mills In the
province, anil tlie visitors will be
shown over the plain, and generally
made welcome*
At the meetings a thorough investigation of condition!-: in the lumber
business will take place, and conditions for the future outlook summed
Among those from East Kootenay
wlio are expected to attend the meeting at Chase are Mr. Archie Leitch,
of Jaffray. president of the Association, accompanied by Mrs. Leitch, Mr.
and Mrs. H. H. Ross, of Waldo, Mr.
and Mrs."Pi Adolph, of Baynes Lake,
Mr. and Mrs. C. D. McNabb. of Waldo. There may also be a representative from Wycllffe.
According to a statement given out
this week by I. R. Poole, of Nelson,
secretary of the Mountain Lumbermen's Association, there has been a
slight Increase In the volume of lumber orders received by the milts In
the last two or three weeks. The orders however, are still largely limited
to mixed enrs. indicating that the prni"
rie dealers have already sold tlie lumber for which they are placing orders.
The eastern market continues to take
some upper grades of Interior pine
which, however, is only disposed of
under severely competitive conditions
having to meet the native woods. A
certain amount of this pine is also
being absorbed in the Chicago market.
In April 2,750,000 feet of pine from
the Mountain district was sold on the
eastern market, and the figures for
May will he about thc same, Mr.
Poole stutes. While this business is
written at a loss, it at least has the
effect of turning over money. Tliis applies to pretty nearly all sales made.
WHth the exception of the Elk Valley Lumber Co., the A. MacDonald &
Co., and the Adolph Lumber Company's mills, practically all of the larger mills in the territory covered by
the association are operating. Mr.
Poole states. The White Spruce Lumber Co. at Fernle is? running double
shift, having contracted to deliver all
its spruce output to the Diamond
Match Company, tlie big United States
corporation. Ninety per cent, of the
company's total output is spruce.
Tiie prairie crop is coming along
splendidly, and will bo one of the
factors to determine whether business,
the coming fall will be fair in volume,
or will be light, Mr. Poole suggests.

NICOLA.—The town of Nicola 1ms
been sold to MaJ.-Qeneral Sydney Gold
man, former member of the British
parliament, and a well known South
African capitalist, It Is shortly to bn
oon ver ted into a model English town,
a perfect village green to replace thc
■present business section. In addition
to acquiring the town he purchased
20,000 acres in tho immediate vicinity. Plans under contemplation Include the construction of a summer
resort lor tourists and aa Irrigation
The sight of cases of various dimensions being taken down linker Street
oi the City Transfer truck one day
this week, and taken to the government liquor shire, was a sight that
ought lo have engendered some enthusiasm In the hearts of the thirsty. The
carload of wet goods arrived early
this week, and the Interior ot the
store Js now being made ready for
business. Mr. John Tnylor ef Moyle
is In charge, and the place will probably opened for business beforo long.
It Is quite evident that there Is a
strange feeling of apathy abroad In
regurd to thc new liquor system now
going Into offect, probably because
some of the difficulties that are going
to hamper its proper working out are
now becoming ovideut. Commission
er Wlusby states thnt the province Is
ut present "loaded down" with liquor
now held in private stocks. This
means that these people will not. need
to have recourse to the govornment
stores for tlieir needs, und the question Is, when the stocks need replenishing, will ll be shipped in again, or
procured through the government sto-

Board of Trade was held In the
fico of the secretary on Wednesday
evening, ut whicli there were present
Messrs. J. P, Fink, president, G. J.
Spreull, W. H. Grubbe, C. J. Little,
K. M. MacPherson, VV. D. Oilroy, and
(he secretary, W. M. Harris.
one of tlie most Important matters
io como up was introduced by Mr
Spreull. who announced that a parol mining engineers, members of tlit.
American Institute of Mining Kngin-
ers, were likely to visit this section
about the end or July, under tlie auspices of the Prospectors Association.
There may be twenty-five or more in
tho parly, und some may be accompanied by tlieir wives. Tlieir object
iu making the trip Is to get first hand
information of the district, und tlie
Prospectors' Association ls making
arrangements to show them around
and give them a igood idea of the
mineral resources of tills portion of
the Kast Kootenay. Tho Board ot
Trade hus expressed a willingness to
co-operate with the Prospectors in
this matter, aud more will likely he
lizard of it as the arrangements ure
made. An appropriation has been
voted by tlie executive of the Board
of Trade to help with -tlie expenses of
tho project.
An Invitation has been extonded to
a delegation from the 'Associated B.C.
Boards of Trade who will be visiting
the Kootenays some time next month,
to include Cranbrook hi their itinerary. They are visiting also Nelson,
Trull, Rossland and Fernle In tho interests of the Associated Boards of
Trade ot B.C.
It was decided to write to Supt.
Eakin, of the city works department,
and suggest that experiments with
the use of tailings from the St. Eugene mine at Moyie be made on the
city streets. It is felt thut this material will pack down and make very
satisfactory roads, better than tho
coarse gravel now being used, and
an Immense quantity ot the tailings
is available at Moyle.
The secretary was instructed to
write Hon. T. D. I'attullo. minister
of lands at Victoria, thanking him for
his recent visit here, and asking him
to nfcake a more extended visit some
tlmo iu the future when other possibilities in tlie way of irrigation might
be looked into. The department will
also be asked for a copy of the report on the St. Mary's Prairie* Irrigation project. Mr. J. H. McQuaid,
chairman ot the uricultural committee, will be asked to look into the
possibility of irrigating the bench overlooking town, from Hamilton's
ranch south, from New Lake or Smith
Lake, and Col. Pollen will be asked
for a report on the Skookumchuck
project. Inquiry will also be made
of the Soldier Settlement Board as to
tlie status of the undertaking they
proposed at one time to put ln hand
with the marsh near the South Ward
School, which was to be drained and
cut up Into small holdings.
The Hossland Board of Trade asks
for the support of the Cranbrook and
other boards of trude in an endeavor to prevent the Great Northern
abandoning Its Hed Mountain branch
Into Hossland, which it Is claimed by
the company is being operated at a
loss. No action wus taken by the
executive on this matter, and further
information will be sought.
lu regard to the idea tor a community movement to clean up the cemetery, launched by some of the fraternal organizations in tbe city, the
board executive decided to give Its
full support to any movement that Is
launched. In some quarters it Is
felt that if the revenue derived by
th city from tlie sule of plots is sufficient to warrant it, the council itself should tuke some steps to put the
cemetery in nfore presentable condition.
A letter from Supt. Watson Hall,
of the Canadian Pacific Hallway, intimated thut the company intends to
Start work on the plot of ground on
Baker Street between the Y. M. C. A.
and the depot about the first of the
month. It Is understood It* will be
fenced, seeded, and possibly some
shrube put In.
Tho executive learned with some
surprise that the Cranbrook Board bt
Trade is the owner ot a building at
tho Lethbrldge fuir grounds. This
wus apparently used a good many
years ngo for a Cranbrook district
exhibit, and the Lethbrldge fair board
would like to have it put to similar
use again. Tlie executive decided to
offer thc use of the building to Cres*
ton to be occupied with a fruit exhl
bit if they saw fit.
Adventurous Spirit Embarks on
Six Months Journey In
A Rowboat
(Special to the Herald)
INVERMERE, June 23.—Last week
there arrived here on his way around
the Big Bend of the Columbia River.
Mr. M. J. Lorraine, a locating engin
eer who had come all the way from
Alliambra. California, for the sole
purpose of tlie hazardous trip of tlie
Collfmbla river from its source in tlie
Windermere district to its mouth at
Astoria,  Oregon,  u distance of some
fourteen hundred miles ull told.   He

Plats, tiie very head ot the Colutublu
river, aud out of a log of wood carved

an extreme length of seventeen feet
with u keel width of some thirty-six
inches and flares up to a width of
about four feet at tlte wide part of the
gunwales. It has a carrying capacity of about one tou weight, and when
loaded will draw at its deepest seven
inches of water. She bears the name
Tlie first leg of the journey was
from Canal Flats across lhe lakes to
this part whore a stop of several
days was made to lay iu supplies.
From Athalmer the official start wus
made ou Siimlay nn*ruing und will be
continued leisurely until Golden Is
reached, a distance of some 100 miles.
It Is after passing Golden that the perils of tho trip come In for there is
a succession of wild and dungeruus
rapids of varying lengths all tho way
through until long after the Big Bend
is passed und the river winds ou
south to Revelstoke.
Mr. Ijorralne Intends taking tho trip
leisurely and has allowed himself six
mouths* lo cover tho fourteen hundred
miles. He will prospect for minerals
along tho way. Ho is an experienced
voyageur, having run the swift waters
of the Skeena and Yukon rivers in
small crafts.
Last year the trip by conoe from
thc source to the mouth of the Columbia River wus made by Mr. Lewis R.
Freeman, the celebrated United States
magazine writer, but prior to that period It is doubtful If It has beeu attempted tor mauv a long year.
Chautauqua closed last Thursday
with two good programs by the Scotch
Canadian Concert Party, providing
some ot the best In music, according
to some, of the entire week. Pitt
Parker, cartoonist, modeller and entertainer, also proved very acceptable
as a wind-up number in tbe evening,
not the least interesting part of his
work being the lightning caricatures
of some local celebrities. At the close
of the performance the faithful few
were on hand to help get the big tent
down, and this was accomplished In
the record time of two hours, thanks
to the willing work of the dozen or so
helpers. After this there was a midnight supper at the L.D. which everyone seemed to think they had earned.
The superintendent, Miss Smith, and
the assistant, Mr. Clark, In charge of
the tent, desire the Herald to state
that they appreciated the help that
was forthcoming from the officials of the local committee at all
times, and they hops for a more
successful termination to the Chautauqua financially next year. Miss
Smith went from here to Vulcun, Alberta, and Mr. Clark with his tent
went on to the next point beyond,
there being eight tents on the circuit

In spite of the fact that a deficit

White Spruce to get four men home In

'Had the Dominion Government

in this particular branch of the mining and smelting Industry would
have beon very substantially increased; over 700 additional men would

These were the words spoken hy J.
J, Warren, president of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
of Canada, Limited, operating iho hig
gold-copper mines In Rossland, the
smelter of the company ar Tadauae-
the world-famed Sullivan line-lead
mine at Kimberloy and other of the
important mines throughout the
provinco, to cltlsens of Trail, at a
most representative meeting oi tho
Trail Hoard of Trade, held last week.
Mr. Warren had only a few days
ago arrived ut Tadanac from the
head Office of the company in Toronto, and consented to talk to the
hoard members and eitlseus of Trail.
The president announced that Mr.
Warren had consented to address the
meeting; that ou a similar occasion
the members had gone away from
the meeting after Mr. Warren had
addressed them "feeling much bet-
tar," und he knew Mr. Warren's ud-
dress would bo looked forward to
with pleasure and he hoped a similar feeling would prevail when the
meeting came to a close.
Mr. Warren was Introduced by
President Mills and spoke for some
time, outlining tho difficulties under
which his company had been laboring in tbe face of the depression
felt throughout the whole world In
tlie past years since ihe war. He
did not think he had any message
to bring to citizens of Trail that
would cause any great amount ot
enthusiasm; the Consolidated Company had succeeded in keeping going
in spite of these abnormal conditions, which fact was due largely to
the most efficient manner in which
ihe staff and workers had co-operated in the performance ot their duties.
President Warren stated that be-
cause of the improvements in the
treatment of ores and smelling processes inaugurated of lat- by the
metallurgical staff of the company
tne cost of~preduction haa trcen cj
materially decreased as tu permit of
work being continued.
"There may be no shut-down," Mr.
Warren told his auditors, which announcement was received with considerable enthusiasm.
Few seem to realize Just what
obstacles are In the way of greater
development of tbe mining aud
smelting industry' and Mr. Warren
brings out quite clearly the difficulties encountered in nol securing
an adequate tariff to protect the copper rod and flourspar branches of the
activities of the company. He told
tiow the Dominion government had
been made acquainted with the obstacles in the way ot greater activities along these lines, hut had failed
to heed the appeal for an adequate
tariff, hence the greater development
of these two lines of effort had been
Mr. Warren said he had peraonal-
y taken up the question with the
Dominion Government, but the fact
that a campaign was in the offlng was
the main obstacle In bringing about
the necessary legislation; it would he
a year or more probably before
the relief sought for would he obtained, If then. He had met with
earnest co-operation from the Urit-
sh Columbia members of parliament
who realized tbe great importance of
such a tariff as was asked for, but in
iplte of all these overtures, ttie govornment had put forward a deaf ear
and hence there was nothing to be
lone but to wait.
The speaker referred to the Immense sumB Invested by tin- company
ii their copper-rod mill at Tadanac
and their flourspar property near
Grand Forks; how such legislation
would permit of such big properties

near Princeton being operated) and
how labor would be benefitted along
with all branches of business,
"Had tbe Dominion Oovernment
placed and adequate tariff on copper
rods and flourspar when the matter
was placed before them at the last
session of parliament, the pay rolls
in this particular branch of ihe mining and smelting Industry would
have heen very substantially increased; over 700 additional men would

"Politics had been largely responsible for tbe Question being held up,"
said Mr. Warren. "I do not know
what the Boards of Trade* might accomplish in endeavoring to secure
tlie establishment of such a tariff. Any
co-operation on your part would bo
along progressive lines woud uo

THURSDAY, JUNE 23rd,  1921
If the idea embodied in the
proposal for the city to take
over the ten acre block near St.
Joseph's Creek Is as much to
provide a site for a city park
as for new agricultural fair
grounds, it is a pity this could
not have been emphasized in
the wording of the by-law. It
would have given the ratepayers a better idea of what the
ten thousand dollars to be raised is to be used for. lt would
also help to convince some who
seem to be a little doubtful of
the proposition, that it is ito
the benefit of the city at large
to pass the by-law.
There ls no question that
Cranbrook needs a city park
nor that the site in question is
well suited lo that purpose. If
It is properly planned a little
expenditure on the grounds
could effect a great deal in laying them out as a park,
it could be done, moreover,
without in any way Interfering
with what other purposes are
in view for the site.
Somewhere in the working
out of the scheme it ought to
be possible to find a solution
for the Cranbrook war memorial project. This matter has
now lain dormant for a good
while, and lf.it'is allowed to
rest very much longer it will
become a matter for posterity
to deal with, and they will have
to refer to the history books to
find out what it is all about.
Other places are making various moves in the matter, and
one of the latest to get going
is the progressive Alberta town
of Raymond. A public spirited citizen of that town lodged
twenty-five dollars with the local newspaper office, and twenty-nine others are expected to
follow his example, and they
probably will. If a definite
scheme were put before the
people of this district, chances
are good that the money would
be forthcoming.
Still another voice is to be
found joining in the recent criticism which has arisen ln regard to the manner of the Oliver government's method of
conducting the public business
at Victoria of late. This latest
denunciation comes from "Farm
and Home" which is without
question the most influential
farm paper in the province,
having a large circulation
throughout all the farming sections of B.C. It has announced
in the past that it stands aloof
from party, but stands for the
farmers' interests first and last.
On tbe front page of the issue of June 9, printed in two
colors, appears the following,
under the heading "Political
Corruption Rampant":
Healh brazen and corrupt Involving

In the cabinet. Regardless of your political complexion you are Interested because it ls you who will pay tbe bill.
All uver this province farmers are
struggling away trying to make ends
meet and pay exorbitant taxes which
must be increased unless a change is
made. While Premier Oliver and bis
cabinet are turning down appeals for
small road and rural appropriations,
because they claim tho government
hus nu money, here is wlmt they are

They huvo Just bought the Churles
IC. Campbell Company's warehouse for
which they paid in cash $■ nu.uuo or
public money. The assessed vuluutlun
at the City Hull for this property Is
»r.s.fiim. The valuation bourd of the
Vancouver Real tistute Kxehungo has
given uu Official valuation of }S2,5(K>
on the property. Their valuation is
nol to be questioned. Mr. Campbell
quit elulmed tho property two yeurs
ago for tho amount then owing, some
170.000, and only lust May (1920)
bought il back by arranging to pay
that much to tho holder of the mortgage. Upon survey It ls found that the
building encroaches upon the adjoining property some sixteen Inches,
which means the government will be
faced with a lawsuit and heavy damages In order to clear up Its title. The
difference between 1150,000, the amount paid by the government, and the
official valuation of $82,500 Is 167,500.
This amount has been taken out of
public funds and must be added to the
taxpayers' burden.
Every member of the Legislature
who is not an accomplice or a consenting party to these outrages must publicly announce himself. Our readers
by making such a request upon their
representative will soon discover
whether or not the party wlio has
sworn to govern and protect them is
currying out his oath of office.
Politics will have little away In the
columns of this Journal, but when
politicians get so corrupt that they
will not hesitate to brazenly rob and
steal from the people they have sworn
to protect it is time for everyone to
Interest themselves.
Premier Oliver must show that he
Is not a consenting party to these
frauds; must show that he Is still
Premier; and he must prove tbat he
has not forsaken the common people,
who have been Inclined to entrust htm.
"Farm and Home" has also
taken the part of the farmers
in the Fraser Valley who have
so repeatedly been flooded out
Damage to the extent of upwards of $200,000 has been
done again this year, and while
the Premier is Inclined to place
the blame with the Dominion
authorities for not taking active steps to dyke the banks of
the Fraser at the threatened
points, many of the farmers are
putting the blame on the provincial government for not tak
ing some remedial steps to face
a situation tbat recurs so often.
They point out that an offer has
been made from Ottawa to bear
some of the expense of keeping
the Fraser within its banks,
which Premier Oliver has refused, and that apart from this
one particular, the responsibility Is clearly with the provincial
government. "Farm and Home
ln its Issue of June 16th says:
The Fraser River flood did not come

stream haB burst her natural bounds

The flood which broke tbe Gourley

anticipated by the farmers of Nlco-

cabinet which John Oliver Is supposed
to lead to provide the assistance necessary to ensure snfety, but tbelr
plea waB refused.
Next to the actual loss, privation
and suffering of tlle destitute farmers
and families of the ruined area, the
worst feature of the flood Is that the

A Ureal Plan
The greatest single plan that has
ever been put forward for the advancement of Western Canada, short
of the building of the Canadian Pacific Hallway, Is now made Ilie main
plank of an organization known as
the Western Canada Colonization Society. It is a plan by which the many
mtllons of acres already provided with
railways, highways, schools, telephones and other, amenities of civilization may he brought Into occupation by bona fide farmers. This plan
would compel owners of unoccupied
land to register tlie selling price of
their lands (which price would brj
made the basis of (ax assessments)
and give some local person tlie power
to sell the land on their behalf at the
registered price.—Montreal Herald.
CALGARY, Alta.-—Tremendous irrigation projects are planned in Alberta
as the result of the provincial government backing the $5,400,000 bonds of
the Lethbrldge Northern Irrigation
district, and It is estimated Ihat the
total amount of the outlay Involved
In ull tlie proposed undertakings will
amount to between $50^000.000 aud
$60,000,000. This expenditure of course
does not include the Canadian Pacific
Hullway's gigantic enterprise* which
already Is serving hundreds of thousands of acres. The demand for irrigation farms Is greater Hum-the supply
at the present time, so impressive have
been the returns from land furnished
with water artificially In Albertu-
One cannot help hut in.irvcl, wheu
the address of President .1. .1. Warren
of the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company of Canada, Limited, made ut the meetiug of tho
Trull Hoard of Trado recently
is read und digested, ut the apparent Ignorance of the Dominion
Covernmont at Ottawa with tlie stt-
uutlou confronting the mining aud
smelting Industry throughout the Dominion at the presont time.
Notwithstanding Hie heads of these
most Important institutions In our industrial world have been growing
gray tn an effort to keep the wheels
going 'round, tho Government appears to know llttlo regarding the
obstacles confronting the Industry,
and apparently cares less.
Mr. Warren spoke of his efforts to secure a tariff on copper rods
and flourspar, and stated he had been
unsuccessful; stating that notwithstanding the British Columbia members of tho House of Commons realized that the tariff was Imperative and
adequate protection should be forthcoming, the Government, because of
the fear of the effect such action
might have In view of the fact that
a general election was approaching,
withheld action, hence business, labor, agriculture and nil lines of effort
In the sections where the people depend largely upon the activities of
the Industries affected by this inaction on the part of the representatives
of the people, miffer.
According to Mr. Warren's statement of the manner in which the government treated the question, labor
is ono of the prime losers because
of the Government turning a deuf
ear or refusing the tariff necessury
lo place these Industries ou a linn
footing and put then) lu a position
to compete with outside producers
who nre not nfl"ected as are the companies engaged iu this line of production in Canada.
Also, one will marvel at such inaction ou the part of the Government
lu the face of the fact that unemployment is rampant throughout the
Dominion aud to re-establish the copper and flourspar industries on a
substantial basis by tbe application
of a reasonable tariff, would give
employment to possibly a thousand
or more of these idle men and continue the development of the nuturul
resources of tho Dominion and the
Province of British Columbia In particular, wliere at Tadanuc the first
copper rod mill in the Dominion has
been estulillshed at great cost by the
Consolidated ('ompany.
The whole of British Columbia Is
affected by tho non-encouragement of
this proposition on the part of tbe
Government at Ottawa, and every effort by Boards of Trade of tbe Province and other public bodies should
be made to bring about the tariff required to permit of the profitable and
succesful operation of these branches
of the mining and smelting industry
of British Columbia, the greatest asset tlie Province, and more particularly the Kootenay, enjoys.
It looks like poor politics on the
purt of the administration of Premier
Melghen. and recalls to mind the
contention that not very many, If
any, of thoso directing tho affuirs of
our governments familiarize thom-
solvos with matters of vital Importance to the people, more especially
those In the rural districts.
It goes without suylug thut lu this
instance the Melghen government
will huve a lot of explaining to do if
It Is to satisfy the electors that tn Us
1 rent men t of tills question it acted iu the bust Interests of the
Dominion, and because of not familiarizing itself with condition...
is putting a stump of approval on
non-producers und refusing to encourage he vol opine nt of our natural

William Fcrnio, who died at Oak
Day, Victoria, British Columbia, iu
his 83rd year, was ont of the pioneers of the Kootenay country. He was
bom at Kimbolton, Huntingdonshire,
Kngland, and was tbe second son of
a physician with a good country practice wlio intended that tli-Vboy should
study medicine. Not taking kindly to
his father's good Intentions, he ran
away from home at the age of 14 and
went to sea iu a sailing ship bound
for Australia. There he worked for
some time with a tent maker, tried
mining and eventually joined u trading schooner plying among the South
Sea Islands, which landed him In
Peru. He next tried his luck on the
Isthmus of Panama and worked for
some time on a coastal steamer as second mate. He then drifted north to
California, where he mined In the
placer diggings for some time, hut
with little success.
Reaches British Columbia
Vancouver Island then attracted
him, where he spent some time a;
Victoria and Nanaimo. At the latte*.
place he worked in the coal mines
with hia brother, Peter, on old Crimean veteran, who predeceased him
In Victoria In 1915. Later he took in
the Cariboo district and from there
he followed tlie rush of gold-seekers
Into Kootenay, where gold was discovered on Wild Horse ('reek ln 1811.4.
Fortune was still fickle, for lie was
too late to get a .paying clam, so be
secured the position of foreman on the
Dewdney Trail from Fort Shepherd
from the Hon. Edgar Dewdney.
When tho Big Bend excitement
broke out he wont Into that section
by way of Lytton, but meeting with
poor success again, he returned to
Wild Horse Creek and Joined In the
gold rush to Perry Creek in 1868. In
the year British Columbia entered
Confederation, be went to Victoria and
received an appointment as constable
In the Kootenay district under the
late Cornelius Booth, as Gold Commissioner. This position he held for
some years and finally succeeded Mr,
Booth aB Oold Commissioner and for
a short period acted as customs officer at what ls now known as Cranbrook.
An Outcrop of Coal
During the time he was Gold Commissioner, his brother, Peter, was
road foreman on the Crow's Nest
Trail, and noticing coal outcroppings
along the trail he drew William's attention to them. William Fernie, recognizing the future possibilities of
this discovery, then determined to exploit the discovery when the time
was opportune.    ,
Having left the government service,
he took up a ranch at Wolf Creek,
with his brother Peter, and went extensively into cattle raising. He made
a success of this venture and sold out
to Messrs. Humphreys and Aylmer at
a good price. Returning to Victoria,
he joined his brother and Mr. Joseph
Wrlgglesworth In opening up and developing a lime kiln at Colwood, near
Esquimau, which, however, proved
unsuccessful. He again returned to
the Wild Horse, or rather to Fort
Steele, which had come Into existence
at the mouth of the Wild Horse Creek.
From this point he organized a small
company to exploit hi*, coal discoveries, associating himself with Colonel
Baker and Messrs. Pemberton, Aylmer, Humphries, V. Hyde Baker and
Ned Bray.
Gave His Name (o Fernle
He was «ry busy for tho following
seasons In prospecting ami locating

acted In an advisory capacity In open
Ing up new seams and was also for
some time land commissioner for the
company. About 16 years ago he re
tlreH from active service with the
company and made his home in Oak
Boy, Victoria.
William Fernie waa methodical and
conscientious In everything he undertook, a loyal friend and ever ready to
extend a helping hand to one less fortunate than himself. He was a most
generous contributor to all local
charities, and during the war set an
example to all by hia voluntary contributions to war purposes.
In his passing, the province has
suffered a great loss.
VICTORIA.—All persons In British
Columbia, wlio have whiskey or other
liguors. not bought, from the government, must send lu to tbe Liquor
Board, before July 15, a statement of
the Quantity uud kind, Colonel W. N.
Wltuftjr, Liquor Board commissioner,
announced last Thursday. All liquor
not reported to the board will be subject to confiscation after July 15.
When liquor ls reported to the
board, labels will be ut once sent out
for owners to affix to their private
stocks. These labels will make the
private stock immune from government seizure-
There will be no liquor board officials sent around from house to house
to take a census of liquor bottles in
cellars or other places. Col, Winshy
explained. The bounj will allow each
owner to report his stock, so there
will he no annoyance to citizen or attempt at interference with the sane
tlty of homes. At first lt was bring
planned to have inspectors go around
and seal all liquors In private houses
and other places, but the method of
having owners report and of issuing
labels for them to attach to their own
stock will cover the case, the board
now believes.
Thero will be no charge for reporting liquor or supplying labels.
"Our liquor board offices will be Inundated with reports as this province
Is now loaded down with liquors," said
Col, Wlnsby.
Colonel Winsby declared that sale of
liquor under government control hus
got away to a good start since the
stores were opened. The operation nf
tho act, however, Is menaced by the
right of importation which private individuals and firms are maintaining,
ho admitted.
"When the people of British Columbia voted for government control they
bad thu Idea they wero placing the
whole business solely hi the hands of
the governmnt and that there would
be absolutely no private Importing or
selling," ho said. "As long as tliis
privato Importing Is permitted, government control will not get a fair
Names of government appointees
under the Liquor Board were not made
public as expected, because of the decision not to gazotte the appointments.
At the legislative buildings it was explained that the names were not being

Importance to print In the official
wnekly paper. It was said that the

works in active co-operation with tlie
provinces in tlie matter ot improving
grain and field seeds Money Is provided to pay prizes in standing field
crop competitions, at seed fairs and
provincial seed exhibitions, and in
combined seed crop and cleaned seed
competitions. The last named is a recent introduction. It has two distinct
phases, the first consisting of a standing field crop competition and the second of threshed and cleaned seed ln
whicli the seed produced from the
fields of the first phase is judged in
the granary of the competitor. Th»
competitions must have at least fifteen entries in each, and the foundation seed UBed must be ot approved origin. The minimum quantities ot
cleaned seed that competitors must be
prepared to submit to quality for awards are. wheat, barley, peas, buckwheat and corn each 100 bushels, oats
200 bushels, tield beans 25 bushels,
clovers and timothy 15 bushels, and
potatoes 150 bushels. The awards,
except In tho case of potatoes, are
made on a basis of 65 per cent on thl
bin score and 35 per cent on tlte field
score. In the case ot potatoes the
method Is reversed, the award being
based on 35 per cent of the bin score
and 65 per cent on the field icore.
All agricultural associations are eligible to conduct these competitions, provided the association entering does not
conduct a field crop competition In
the same season with the samo kind
of crop. To tho prize money under
subvention agreement the Dominion
subscribes $200 In each Instance and
the provinco 1100.

value of sunflowers as a silage crop,

not a reliable crop- The claim is made

than corn, withstanding both drouth
and frost to -<, greater degree. Inso-
I far as the claims put forth for sun-
' flowers as food for lattle are virtually
of recent origin, experiments and Investigation regarding them are practically fn an introductory stage. ' It is
interesting to note, however, that an
analysis of sunflower silage fed at an
Idaho agricultural farm station indicated that it compared favorably with
corn silage. In Canada also studies
of the relative value of sunflowers
and corn for silagf purposes suggest
that in nutrition there is not any
ureal difference, although corn ia to

The Flavour Lasts
Tho recurring differences of opinion
arising between teachers and School
Boards on the question of salaries
suggest that there should be tome
central authority in a provincial educational system where the decision
would rest. As matters are. salaries
vary in different localities, and. apparently, this variation is not necessary because the teachers In some
places do not measure up to the
stumlurd achieved by those lu other
localities nnd also the variation I*
not always duo to the amount of work
which mny K* Involved. During recent years lucre have been a number
or differences nrtslng^over the salaries paid to the teaching pro toss ton.
With tho demands .for more money
that h.'i'M arisen has come the desire
of the public that a higher standard
should be set Tor Ihose win aro entrusted with ihe mental development
of the youth of the province.
Since education in British Columbia
Is provincial In Its scope the toachera
should come under the civil Service
aud tho salaries should bo paid hy
tho provincial government, leaving
municipalities to find moneys required for buildings and their maintenance, and the other expenses involved.
By this method it would be possible to
bring about schedules of salaries tor
touching and thus partially prevent
tho differences which arise on the
subject from time to time.
Some day the force of public opinion
will bring about reforms in our educational system. It is a poor process
advocating these, because reform
comes slower in this respect than in
almost any other. One of the obstacles to tho promotion of conditions
which will mean a raiding or the standard or education is that the authorities appear to have a smug satisfaction in the system as it prevails, and
can seo no desirability for Improvements except such as call for new expenditures on technical studies. The
salary differences that rise are nn Indication that nil is not well in our educational regime. They show that dissatisfaction prevails, and where there
ls dissatisfaction thero cannot be complete efficiency.—Victoria Colonist.

not been for the quick arrival ot the

would have heen quickly destroyed.
As It was one car belonging to C. W.
Barrett was completely wrecked and
two others badly damaged. The origin
of the fire seems to be of a very
suspicious nature, as gasoline was
found burning all over tho cars and
a can full sitting on the floor. As
there hnd been none iu the building
when it was closed for thc night, the
inference is plain that some fire bug
hud been at work.

The Experimental Farms of the Dominion are doing some excellent work
in poultry breeding After four or five
years, birds and strains have been produced or exceedingly high productive
capacity. At Kenlvllle, N.S., eleven
breeding pens contain birds that in
their pullet year luid an average of
197 eggs, (he highest bird laying 270
eggs in i~>- weeks. At this station a
Knrred Rock pullet laid 104 eggs in
104 days. In sections where a few
years ago ten or a dozen eggs a year
from a hen were a rarity, there are
now hundreds that run to from 158
to 260. In the Eastern Townships.
Que-, 2G6 eggs have been reached and
from 150 to 200 is a common record.
In the prairie provinces the Experimental Farms hav^ reached high records. At Indian Head, Sask., last
year 105 pullets had an average of
183.7 eggs, the highest being 292. At
Lethbrldge, Alta., the average production has increased two or three
times over what It was nine or ten
years ago. New Brunswick has a similar tale to tell, ono hen at Frederic-
ton reaching 25(1 eggs in a year. British Columbia however, takes the palm.
At the Agassiz Experimental Farm,
200 eggs are common and from 250
to 270 are not rare. At the Vancouver Island station 200 pullets gnve an
average of 195.97, 82 going above 200.
The high production of 300 eggs In a
year has been reached for one-pullet
Hens that cannot lay 200 in a twelve

Lake Windermere district, Just
West of thc Canadian Rockies, seems
Well on the way to become one of
th0 most popular summer resorts in
British Colombia, or in fact Western
Canada. It Iii.* In a Volley, the stillness of which had not heen broken
by the sound of a locomotive until
five years ago, like some beautiful
thing slumbering and knowing notn*
ing but a few scattered settlements.
Fort Kootenay, it is true was con-
s'ructed as far brick na 1807, but
David Thompson, the explorer, who
built that fort could foresee no more
than the Indians with whom he
traded what thc Valley could give
to mankind. The Kootenay Trail,
commonly known ns the Old Whiskey Trail ran from Fort Steele to
Windermere, then across the Rockies
by way of the Sinclair Canyon and
the KootenHy River to the construction gangs of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. Whiskey, of course, was
contraband In those days, and thu
trail resulted In much profit to the
R. Randolph Bruce, C.E., F.R.G.S.,
of Invermere, saw the possibilities
of this highway, he knew it was time
the old pony trail should he replaced
by a good motor road, and through
his efforts in 1-U05 the Canadian IV
cific Rallwny. and the Government
of British Columbia ultimately took
tho matter up. Work was commenced on thu British Columbia end
of the motor road hi 1011, hut tlu-
work was done very intermittently
owing to lack of funds, and the wnr.
The district is opened sufficiently
now to revel in good roads, and the
scenic points of interest can be
reached comfortably.
l'ending the completion of 'the
Bnnff-Winderniere Road, autos can
be shipped by rail between BAnff, or
Lake Louise to Golden on tho Canadian Pacific Railway. From Golden
the highway connects with the
Columbia Valley Road, via Windermere road. Lake Windermere has
much to offer the tourist, and lover
of nature, for the country is varied
for sports and amusements, and accommodation can be had to suit all
tastes, hotel, or camp life if preferred.
Invermere is the station which is
tlie key to this Utopia of the Columbia Valley, a tiny structure which
looks like a toy, and is rather a relief after the noise aud bustle of
larger ones, and savors of the country. As soon as one alights from
the .train, and begins to wonder
where the town* hotel, or any semblance of civilization is, you are approached by a man who asks if you
wish accommodation at the hotel or
Lake Windermere Camp, and at the
same time he satisfies your curiosity

dives one a sense of peace and calm.
This valley is miles and miles in
length and pastoral in its beauty
Thu lake stretches out a scintillating
sheet of water, situated as few lakes

"Beautiful" does not describe it
"grand" and "unique" are adjectives
more apt. It is unique in thut the
pnstnrul, the rugged and magnificent
are nit combined. Directly from the
shores of the lake, unduluting slopes,

spruce, pines and fir, open fields are
seen here and there along these

Above rise the hills well timbered,
and above the hills tower the mountains, as if guarding the quiet pastoral lands bulow, from intrusion
of the outside world. The lake aud

Selkirks on the west. The end of the

"The tear of un election was one
of the reasons for tlie Government
wltholdlng aetlon on the questiou of
a tariff on copper rods and flourspar.*' suid President Warren. "The
argument was advanced thut others
wanted things, und to give to one,
iiii. B&tne treatment for lesser deserving propositions would he demand*
ed, lienco we accomplished nothing
because ol this view the government
leaders took or the proposition."
Mr, Warren was critical of the
Oovernment for lis "Inaction." "it
Ih not what the government has done
din! I am criticizing them for, hut
' ihelr Inaction In matters ot vital 1m-
poriaiic-e to the Dominion such us i
have outlined, especially lu the face
.of the representations mado from ull
sources realizing tho importance of
such legislation just at this time."
Mr. Warren assured his auditors
'he wus fully appreciative of the In
iterosi being taken by the board iu
■niatlors of vital importance to the
maintenance and upbuilding of the Industry which ho represented and the
continued operation and further development of which meunt so much
to the Kootenays. The Consolidated Company was endeavoring to
carry on and hoped for better conditions beforo a great while.
President Warren's address was
enthusiastically received, and he was
warmly applauded when he resumed
his seat.
It was suggested that action
might be taken by the meeting ln the
way of suitable resolutions asking
the government to give careful considerations to the matter of a tariff
on'copper rods and flourspar. and a
motion was proposed to tlie effect that
a resolution be drafted and that all
hoards of trade in the province
asked to endorse the movement, the
motion being unanimously adopted
Again Mr. Warren thanked the
meeting for the spirit of co-operation
displayed, nnd suggested that Comptroller T. W. Blngay of the company,
be consulted while tlie resolution Is
being prepared as lie possessed valuable data which was not nvailahle

record their sinkings, bringing with
them good-looking gold samples. This
Is the "farthest south" gold rush In
the Temlskamlng and Northern Ontario country, fifteen miles south of any
previously known gold occurrences.
Spring and summit bring the

and Cade, but one summer outing
never loses its charm for old
friends and ls constantly acquiring
new admirers, and that Is a vacation spent on a Great Lakes'
Thousands of vacationists make
the trip to beautiful Georgian Bay
with Its Thousand islands clustered
about Ontario's resort dotted shore.
Other thousand*-, sailing from Toronto or Port McNicoll, head westward and northward through Erie
and Huron Intu that inland sea of

The round trip from Port McNicoll on Georgian Bay, to Kort

comfort* and luxuries of ocean

selves such as out-door dancing
space on the after-deck and dining
salons fitted with large plate glass
windows through which wide views

Perhaps the chief point of interest on this trip is the passage
through the famous "Soo" Canal
where ships of all sorts and sizes
are lifted from Huron Into Superior
by the canal locks. Many millions
of dollars of Canadian and American money have gone into ths construction of this canal and lt Is
operated Jointly by the two fotern-
Thwo are two

to promote transportation through
Lake Superior, may be surmised by
the fact that during 1919, vessels
to the number of 17,587 and 66,992
passengers passed through its looks.
Vast quantities of freight also fina

Tlie following, taken from the Trail
News of last week, refers to the Nurd-
man family, who were formerly residents of Moyie, and well kaown there
and In Cranbrook. Later word from
Trail is to fiie. effect that Charles
N'ordman has peen practically uncon
sclous since tbe accident, regaining
consciousness for a time, and then
lapsing back again Into unconsciousness. Owing to the fact that the
younger brother was practically unhurt, lie was able <o assist bis motbc
out from under l.ie car, which went
right down to the river.
The Trail N-.ws gives the following
account of the mlsaup:
"What narrowly escaped being a
fatality occurred Monday morning on
china Creek hill when the cur driven
by Charlie Nordman of Hossland, und
containing also his mother, Mother
and sister, plunged over the edge of
tho road and rolled over uud over Into
tiie river below.
"Tlie roud gung have been ut work
for some time lowering the grade ol
the roud, and considerable soft dirt
had been piled along the edge- Mon
day morning, as the car approached
where the gang were at work, oue of
the meu was standing on the upper
side of tlie road, and to avoid running
into lilm, young Nordman swerved tlie
car slightly. The front wheel struck
the soft dirt which gave way carrying
the car with It.
"Word was sent to Trail and Dr.
Nay, accompanied by Druggist Mar-
geson and Druggist Huzlewood, left
at once for tiie scene of tlie accident
and brought tbe victims to the Trull
"Charlie Nordman Is tlie most severely Injured, having sustained a
fracture at tiie base of the skull. No
untoward symptoms havo developed,
however, and unless complications set
iu, he Is expected to make a good recovery.
"His brother escaped practically uninjured. Mrs. Nordman is suffering
from a fractured clavicle nnd Internal
injuries to tiie chest. Miss Irene
Nordman sustained a fractured clavicle and numerous cuts and bruises,
none of which, however, are serious,"

At the annual synod of tiie Diocese
ot tiio Kootenay, held last week in
Nelson, announcement was made by
Bishop Doull that the see city had
beeu changed from Vernon to Nelson,
pending the division of the big diocese
Into two portions, one to embrace* the
Kootenays and the other the Okanagan and vicinity. Rev. F. H. Graham, incumber! at Nelson, was appointed archdeacon ot the Kootenay-
Bishop Doull brought the church
union movement to the attention of
(lie synod, characterizing the move
looking towards this end launched ut
tlte recent Lambeth conference as (lit
greatest since the reformation. He
also approved tiie recommendation
emanating from the same source urging the opening of a wider sphere tor
women's work in the church.
Tho Bishop ulso urged strictest enforcement of the new liquor act, de-
laring that if It failed, the only alternative tlie people would accept would
bo bone-dry prohibition. The synod
went ou record us favoring a little
more latitude in the matter of been
and light wines.
The Presbyterian Church at Nelson
sent a message of welcome to the sy- '
nod, expressing the hope that the union cause might be advanced, and a
suitable reply wus sent.
In tbe diocesan elections and appointments which were made, Rev. F.
V. Harrison and Judge Thompson
were appointed to the executive committee; Judge Thompson as a representative to the general synod, and
nlso to thc committee on canons; Mr.
R. L. Oalbralth of Fort Steele to the
diocesan court. Rev. F. V- Harrison
was applonted one of tbe rural deans-
Jnd^e Thompson, Mr- C. A. Cock
nnd Rev. F. V. Harrison were the delegates attending the Synod meeting
from this city.
The announcement comes from
Vancouver to the efTect that the Canadian Iron and Steel Smelters, Limited, will build and operate a large
electric smelter there. According to
P. H. Fraser, managing director of
the concern, British capital has been
interested in the venture. An initial 60 ton plant, he says further, will
be operating some time ln August-
The company has been given five
thousand tons of ore by the provincial
government as an Inducement to
commence operations. This ore will
smelt about four thousand tons of
pig Iron,
It would seem that this announcement foreshadows the establishment
of the big steel plant for the Pacific
coast section near Vancouver, instead
of In the interior In the Kootenay,
nearer the available iron ore supplies.

INVERMERE, June 22.— All the

The first of these, which is one of
the chief roads leading from the United States, crosses the boundary line
at Gateway, then through Waldo and
joins the blue line at Fort Steele- For
a distance after leaving Fort Steele lt
follows tiie blue line until It readies
Dutcli Oreek to tlie south of here,
there it separates and continues a
course along tbe west side or Windermere take until It readies here,
where it again unites with the blue

The Blue lino is the more Important of lhe two and is an international ;
one being known as the Banff-California highway. It passes through
Southern British Columbia from the
United States and north of litre branches up the Banff-Wlndormere road
and for the preseni stops at tne top of!
the first big divide in the mountains.'
Iu addition to marking tlie blue und!
black roads throughout the Windermere District Mr. Flenner has also
marked out a number ol tho more Important side roads, the local colors
used being the red route up the fain-1
Otis Toby Creek valley paralleling it
on both .sides making a circle tour of 1
-1 miles; the green route which for;
seventeen miles leads up the valley!
of the Horse Thief Creek and the yellow trail which goes up tbe valley ofj
Number Two Creek for thirty-five'
miles to the Fish Lakes.
Mrs. Flenner accompanies her husband on all these trips.
