U GETS DECISION
JUSTICE MURPHY HOLDS THAT
COMPANY IS   LIABLE   FOR
SERVANTS'  ACTS
■Judgement lias lieen rendered by
Mr. .lus-ticc Murphy in a earn of special interest to those engaged in
lodging operations in this province.
It concerns, a Cranbrook action in
which Thomas Hedigan sued 11m*
Crows Nest Pass Lumber Company,
and his lordship has found for thc
plaintiff, directing a reference before
the registrar to ascertain the quantum of damages to be awarded.
Hedigan entered inta a contract to
art logs for the defendant concern,
hut not to take them out of the territory,. Subsequently it was claimed
that a man named Magoon, said to
be acting for the company, contracted
that Hedigan should take the logs
out or one camp. The Crow's Nest
company intervened and operations
ceased, Hedigan entering suit to recover compensation for work done
and for the carrying out of the contract. *
NO NOTICE OIVEN
t
In his judgement his lordship says,
in parti
"On the question of fact I hold
that the contention that the plaint'
iff abandoned the contract is not
proven. Tlie contract requires fifteen days' notice to be given. No
such notice was given, and without it
I bold the contract could not be terminated. The real defense is that
Magoon had no authority to make
the bargain sued on.
"The memorandum and articles
were not put in, hut evidence was
given, without objection, that defendant company is in the lumber business, and amongst other things done
by it was the cutting of logs on its
own limits. Mr. Lund was the managing director and could, as such, I
think, delegate the power to make
such a contract as the one in question and ott tlie true legal construction
of bis letter of November 15, 15*11,
I hold he did make such delation.
The insistent note in that letter is
tluit Magoon is to provide between
85,000,000 and 30,000,000 feet of logs
within twelve months, and lie is urged to get in contractors,
ENTITLED TO SrCCKi::,
"I think on tlie evidence tin* p'aln
tiff is entitled to succeed in \hfo
court at nil events, on thc prim pie
cilcd by Mr. .lustier living in the ic-
cent case of Doctor vs. the Peoples Trust, thiil a company is bound
by the nets nf persons who take
upon themselves with the knowledge
uf Ihe directors, to act. for the company, provided Buoh persons act within the limits of their apparent autho
rity, and that slrangers dealing bona
fide with such i>crsons, hnve a right,
to aniline that Ihey have lieen duly
appointed.
"The plaintiff is entitled to >idg-
inont, hut I direct n reference Ix-forc
lhe registrar to ascertain the quan
luni of damages, ns the matter is n°a
hilly entered into the record. Tlw
measure of damages will be tlie
amount nf profit the plaint in would
have made if allowed to complete thn]
contract in due course."
Mr. Macdonnld, counsel for the
Crow's Nest Pass Lumber Company,
informs the Herald that the cose will
1m* taken to the court of appeals.

MISS DDRDTHY TOYE
NELSON    SINGER    WITH     TWO
OIIAND    OPERA      VOICES
APPEARS IN CRANBROOK.
Miss Dorothy Toye, nf Nelson, who
has beeu heralded throughout Canada
for tlie past several months as thg
opera singer with two grand opera
voices, appeared at the Auditorium
on Tuesday evening, giving a recital
before an enthusiastic audience. I ler
appearance here was made nt the
solicitation of a number of hei
friends in this city, who prevailed
upon her to appear here before she
departed for Rurope to complete her
theatrical engagements, where she
goes within a few days. No time was
given tn advertise her recital properly ami only an average house greeted
the singer on Tuesday evening.
There were rt large number of her
prtsonul friends in t-lio audience,
many of whom had known her in
Nelson when she was but a small
daughter nf Mr. and Mrs. R. .1.
Toye, and her lirst appearance was
the occasion for an enthusiastic demonstration.
The programme, consisting a( eleven numbers with four and live parts
lo many of .thorn gave tt wide range
to the display of her powers. Htt
rendition** were the most superbly
perfect singing ever heard in this
cily, nnd the critics who credit her
with two grand opera voices could
elaborate to a larger degree In measuring the pure tone quality of either nf her voices.
The programme opened with the
curtain lowered, the tlrst strains of
"Siciliana" from the old time favorite "Cavalleria Rustlcann," being
rendered in the purest tenor. As tlie
curtain rose Miss Toye was discovered as the "male singer" and she rendered this difficult song perfectly
being tendered a deafening outburst
of applause at the close.
"In Quelle Trine Morbide" hy Puccini, in "Ich Liebe IMch," by Grieg"
and "The Year's at the Spring" by
Beach her soprano singing reached its
highest excellence and proved her
portrayal of tlw various emotions
through her voice.
One of her own compositions
"Here's 1o the Rose," a melodious
duet, iu which her two voices blend
ed harmoniously In quick succession
closed Part  I
Part II, opened with a soprano aria
Irom La Boheine followed with       a
tenor aria from tlie same opera  and
■li Miss Toye sat at the piano niMl
the
number of familiar old home songs
the greatest of which was "Shad
ows"      by      Bond. These      som*>
brouuM nut the sweetness uf he,
voice, touched the hearts of the audience with Iheir simple melody and
endeared lhe singer in the memories
nf those who listened.
"La Donna Mobile," n tenor solo
from Rlgoletto, one nf tlie most
showy and difficult songs ot lhe pro-
gramme was effectively rendera! in
this song Miss Toye displayed per
feet control jhrnmHi amazing crescen-
doa ami rapid, vlbranl pianissimo*
Her attack and technique was equal
to the best nf the grand opcrn stars
and the thrilling lone quality of her
wonderful tenor voice gave in the
song an added meaning ami ;, force
Inadequate for words lo describe.
In addition to Vr singnij; Miss
Toye is considerable, of an actress
with an easy stage presence and her
advent inlo grand opera and world
prominence as a singer is predicted
within the very near future. She was
accompanied through her recital by
Mr. Fred M. Geo.
Following was thi* complete programme:

•Sir; Having jusl read, in your issue of >luly loth, am account or ihe
sitting of the Royal Commission on
Agriculture at Uauies Lake I must
ask you to kindly allow mo a little
space to correel a mistake which
of considerable importance under
existing circumstances.
Mr. .1. Radford gave his evidence
to the commissioners In private, I
believe, but I fi-el certain that lie
could nol have made such a grave
mis-statement as ynu attribute to
him in the words, "Mr. Welsh (nf
Messrs. Kohb and Welsh, the company's solicitors) had succeeded in
arranging matters fairly to the satisfaction of the great majority of the
ranchers."
When I say that this "fairly satisfactory arrangement" consisted of aii
ultimatum, with a time limit (about
■IR hours, I believe, but I am open
to correction', lor acceptance| the alternative to acceptance being n
threat of eviction, when I say that
this Ultimatum did nol deal at nil
with the only basis on which a sat
isfaetory settlement can Ih* arrived
at, i.e., the provision of a guarantee
for a permanent satisfactory Irrlga
tion, but simply bound its Bignnlor-
tes to arbitration mi the subject of
whether ibis year's Installment
should be deferred to nexl year or
not; when 1 say, finally, that this
"fairly satisfactory arrangement"
wns signed bv lfl landholders (my
authority for this number is one of
the signatories himself) whereas 1
have before me, as I write, tin* names of over fin landholders here, then,
Mr. Editor, I think you will agrci
that this passage In your report
hardly does   justice to the situation,
Prophecy is dangerous at all limes,
so I will only say that nmny others
are with mc in thinking that before
a year has passed, Ihis "arrangement" will he regretted by its signatories—or perhaps, I should say, by
those of them who have not, by
then, also become prominent citi?ens
and hotel-kcciwrs, but have slill tn
depend tor their living on the produce of their farms.
Thanking you,    iu anticipation, for
the Insertion of lhe nbove correction.

KIIC SPEAKS 01
ASIATIC IMMIGRATION
At l( meeiiftg of tne Liberal assc
atiou held fn the Liberal club rooms
over l.esier Clapp's sfore last Thursday evening Dr. .J. II. King addressed
Ihe gathering and pointed out the inconsistencies of, the present administration at Ottawa on the matter of
lapanesc Immigration. After the
winning nf several elections in the
province with the parrot cry of a
"White British Columbia" and thc
sending of the "solid seven" to (H-
tiiwailo represent the province, those)
who elected them could very well
have expected some stringent and
forceful legislation along the lines of
Asiatic exclusion nt' a vigorous measure regulating Asiatic immigration.
The farts borne out by the hill
which was passed and tlie letters
whieh passed between Rt. lion. R.
L. Horden and the .lapanesc emissary
arc that the Conservative government has thrown the Dominion of
Canada wide open to Japanese immi-j
gration with no control whatever,
aud lhe ■lapanesc immigrant can enter Canada today on the same terms
as a British subject from any other
pari of the empire. They can become citizens, control property and
vote on au equality with any British
subject.
If the 'lapanesc government so desired their citizens can he landed
here by the thousands daily and the
Dominion government is powerless to
prevent their landing or regulate
their coming, if they are provided
wilh $25,111. when they arrive.
The doctor was listened to with
attention by those present and vigorously cheered at the conclusion of his
remarks.
The people of British Columbia as
a whole are against the adialics ex-
a whole are against the Asiatics except on lhe most stringent terms and
are in favor of complete exclusion.
The Conservatives have betrayed
their trust and have thrown the
gales* ajar for the wholesale admission of the .lapanesc and the solid
seven from this province raised no
dissenting voice when the hill was
pussed the house utter tlie terms hod
been fixed between thc premier and
the representative of the Mikado.
ll will be interesting to note the
denials and explanations necessary
for the Conservative!' to make before
the nexi election, providing of
course, they ever call another one.
MANAGER BRYMNER GOES
Discussing the progress of Australia with its radical syseem of
administration, the Ottawa Citizen,
the Conservative organ at the capital, recently said: "But in tlie eastern provinces of Canada there is yet
a strange impression that loyalty to
the empire can best he shown by
lying down on the path of progress
and hanging on to the things and the
ways of the past. The Australian
Commonwealth has developed a spirit
of healthy independence which is
wholly in a ceo id with imperial unity,
yet which commands respect both
at home and abroad. . . Australia
shows thai it is possible to lie radical and sane, to bo progressive and
patriotic, and to develop on ■*:-. own
national character and life utthout
the least danger to the "band that
hinds thc scattered segme.i.s into ihe
circle of Imperial union."
Australia is carrying out cxaMly
tbe imperial naval .iid programme
ih.il was agreed upon in *'* 1 rt between Australia, New /.■•.." in-.l and
Canada.
Laurier made good headway geltlug
Canada's share of this programme m-
dcr way, hut his defenl in 1011 ended
that imperial progress.
Mr. Borden came to power and
promptly refused io "develop our
own national character and life with
mil the least danger" to the imperial
bond. He, in the words of his
party organ, became obsessed with
"the strange impression that loyalty
to Ihe empire could best be shown by
lying down on the path of progress
and hanging on to Ihe things and
ways of the past." He prefern
tribute and subservience to developing national character with a Canadian navy as part of the imperial
fleet.
The Ottawa Citizen says Australia's policy "commands respect both
at home and abroad." Mr. Borden's
ideas are mote llkel) lo command
contempt nl home und derision,
abroad.
FAMILY   WILL   LEAVE EN THIRTY DAYS KOR NEW LOCATION.
ll is with considerable regret that
the announcement of the departure of
Mr. H. T. Btymncr and family from
this city is made. Word was received this week from tin* headquarters of the Canadian Bank of Commerce transferring Mr. Brymner to
the management of the branch at
Lethbridge. He will leave in about
thirty days for his new location.
Mr. .1. M, Christie, of Prince Rupert, will succeed Mr. Brymner iu
the .local branch.
Mr. Brymner has lieen manager of
the local branch for the past five and
one half years aud has made many
friends throughout the district since
his connection with the local financial
institution. Last year lie was the
musical director of the Cranbrook
Operatic Society and much of > the
success of "The CIngalee" was due
to bis efforts. Mr. and Mis. Hrymner wilt both be missed from the
musical and social circles of the
city.
Mr. Brymner expressed his regret
in leaving, saying that he had alwavs
liked Cranbrook hut that the move
was in the line of progress ami
that Lethbridge was a trowing little
city with many advantages and good
prospects.
TOURIST TRAVEL TO

C.   P.  'R.      SPHNDINO     bARGE
AMOUNT THIS YEAR-WORK
STARTING AT ROGER'S
PASS.
Vancouver, B.C., .luly 15.—With a
view to encouraging tourist travel
around the Crows Nest and Arrowhead takes route of the Canadian
Pacific railway, H W. Brodie. g*i>
eral passenger agent for British Columbia, has been making arrangements for stop-overs and special
transportation facilities in Kootenay
and Boundary districts. He has just
returned from an inspection visit of
sections in that part of <he province.
Discussing his trip he stated that
general husiness conditions in Nelson
and surrounding districts are showing)
marked Improvement and that traffii
is increasing nn the company's lines
in Kootenay. Now that the company has its new hotel at Balfour in
operation extensive plans for diverting a large share of tourist travel
around by the inland British Columbia lakes have heen drafted.
Vice-President Bury of the Canadian Pacific railway, from Winnipeg
expects to spend a week or ten dajs
on the coast. He expects to have
double tracking completed and in
operation between Mission .function
and Ruby Creek hy September 1st.
Trains are already being operated
over the completed double tracks between hero and Mission. The bridge
over Diet river will not be completed
until later, but with that exception
the double track will lie all ready
finished to Ruby Cfeek by tho date
mentioned.
''This year the Canadian Pacific
railway is carrying out the greatest
construction programme in its history," observed Mr. Bury, referring
to the improvement schemes which
have lieen planned and are now under
way. "Camps have been established
at lingers Pass in preparation for
the giiwntic boring project. The
whole work is to Ih* finished in 12
months."
With regard to the financial siUia
tion Mr Bury said that despite the
financial stringency which has been
affecting all tin* market* of the
world the Canadian Pacific railwav
was not curtailing its expenditures
as wen* main other large corpora
tions, but was proceeding with its
1100,000,000 programme. A tribute
to the financial foresight of Sir
Thomas Shaughncssy was paid by
Mr. Bury in   Ibis connection. 11
said he considered that the fact of
the Canadian Pacific railway spend
ing such large sums of money redounded to the credit of the Dominion., and it was in itself a splendid
advertisement abroad.
Mr. Bury denied the report to the
efTccf that tlte Canadian Pacific rail
way contemplated issuing stock. ft-r
another (100,000,000.
Concerning   the outlook   on       the
prairies    Mr.    Bury said all indications pointed    to one of   the     best
| crops iu tin* history of tlte west.

1 FEW KBEHIK
Development.,   since the formation
of the    Borden government in October,  lflll, may    well cause the people
of Canada to ask Ihemselvcs a      fl'
questions.      The     more   insistently
these questions are asked, the better
will bo the chances for the return   to
good progressive government.
Would Mr. Borden have been elected
* in If'll, if he had promised the people
lie would make     a clear gift of $15,-
000,000 of the people's money to   his
Iriends, "Mackenzie and Mann?
Would .Mr. Borden have lieen elect
ed iu Hill, if he had promised the
people to try to make a gift ot $15.
000,000 or the people's money to tho
ficials in Kngland known as the
Hritish admiralty instead ot continuing the peaplo's policy of a Canadian- navy?
Would Mr. Borden have been elected
in lflll he had tuld the people he
would try to vote $10,000,000 for aid.
to highways, hut only on condition
that he would not trust the provinces with the money, but handle it
himself for his own political advantage?
Would Mr. Borden have been elected had he told the people that
stead of practicing; economy he wouldj
double the   expenditure and taxation
within two years?
Would Mr. Borden have been elect
ed had he told the people that ho
would Instal lion. Robert Rogers as
master ol his administration with
unlimited power [or spending money
and engineering crooked elections?
Would Mr. Borden have been leicctcd
had he told the people of Ontario
that the Laurier government was
perfectly right with regard to tho
impotence of the Ne Tcmero decree tot
affect. Canada's laws and the impos* J
nihility of the Dominion government
passing a uniform marriage bill?
Would Mr. Horden have been elected
had he told the people that while he
knew the Dominion government could
not encroach upon provincial rights
regarding marriage laws, he was willing to waste over $50,000 on political
friends to prove that tho pre-election.
promises made on his behalf were
false?
Would Mr. Borden have been elected
had he told the people that after all
his protestations of Civil Service reform his ministry would be .marked
by the most ferocious partisan persecution of civil servants ever seen in
Canada?
Would Mr. Horden have been elected had he told thc people he would
approve nl such national disgraces as
the Macdonald election deal, the
South Renfrew broken agreement, the
attempted Richelieu by-election bribery, .the Antigottish election bribery
and the Hochelaga personation, and
in each case refuse any investigation?
Would Mr. Borden have been elected
if bo had told the people that as sooj*.
as he got control of the government
he would turn back the hands of tiiui)
and attempt to inaugurate a system
of absolute cabinet rule and the disposal of huge sums by government
without responsibility of parliament;
that he would "gag" the opposition
with closure and threaten to club
the innate   out of existence if either
dared to oppose his will?
Would Mr. Borden have been elected
if the people had realized what the
reciprocity agreement really meant,
and had they known that within a
year or two the I'nited States would
reduce their tariff so as to give
themselves all the benefits of that
reciprocity, while the Canadian consumer was refused them for the
benefit of "the interests"?
Would Mr. Borden have, been elected
if the people could have foreseen that
the Mr. Borden who had condemned
reciprocity in 1911 aud approved the
Slogan of "No truck or trade with
the Yankees" would in thc month of
June, 1!)1.'*J, give a banquet to the
New York State Bankers association
in Ottawa, and, sitting under the
"Stars and Stripes" which hung
above his brad, listen calmly to his
chief guest, Mr. .lames ,1. 1HH, of
St. Paul, deliver a stronger speech iu
favor of reciprocity with lhe United
States than was ever uttered hy any
Lilieral jn Canada?
No one supposes for an instant that
such a thing could be possible. Every
political event since October, 1811,
proves more and more clearly that
the people were dectived and stampeded into a snap verdict during a
period of excitement. Every week
makes it more apparent that a progressive people like the Canadians,
arc on the side of Liberalism and
advancement, not of Toryism and retrogression.
Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Armstrong
acted as the general committee on,
refreshments and those who assisted
in this work were: Airs. Callahan,
Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Dullam, Mrs.
Greaves, Mrs. Mclioldric, Mrs. Murphy, Mrs. Doolan, Mrs. Moflatt and
the Misses Moffatt, Stapleton, Obet-
ta and Green.
The success of the social, which
netted the society the sum of $228
was largely due to the unsparing
labors of Mrs. Drummond and Mrs.
McOoIilric, who were in charge of
the general arrangements for the affair.
These ladies desire to express tlu*ii*
sincere thanks lo all those who so
kindly assisted in thc work and to
all who donated so generously to tho
committees.
WINSTHREE OUT OF FOUR
LOCAL BASEBALL       TEAM
MAKpS GOOD SHOWING IN
OPENING CONTESTS.
Opening the season on the home
grounds last Thursday evening the
Cranbrook baseball team have had a
very successful week. Thc lirst
game was with fernie and was won
by the visitors 7—1. Burr and
McNahb were thc batteries for the
home team- It was a very good
contest and closely contested to the
last inning when .a bunch of hits won
tho game for Kernic. A return
game will be played with Fernie in
the near future, when the local team
will expect to even the score.
On Saturday the team journeyed to
Creston and won from a p'eked team
from that town 16—3. The game wa^
scheduled to be played with Nelson
hut that team disappointed the
crowd at the last minute by not appearing. The $Hlfl prize was won
by Cranbrook.
Sandpoint sent a team on Monday
which plated u double header! afternoon and evening, both games being
won by the Cranbrook team, tho
first Ifi—1 and Ihe evening game
7—1. The last game was a very
good contest, Galvin and Stinspn being the battery for Cranbrook.
This is a total of four games for
the Week, three of which were won
by the Cranbrook team, certainly a
good showing for a start. The team
is strengthening and will he able to
continue to give a good account of
itself in future contests.
The next game will be a double
header next Friday afternoon and
evening between a picked team Irom
Wardner, Waldo and Galloway and

Although there has been a larger
run than usual this year on the lawn
socials as an evening's diversion, the
one given lust evening by the Ladies
Aid ot St. Mary's church proved one
of the. moat successful ot the season.
The evening proved an exception to
tho late weather as there was no
rain during the day and the air was
still and warm. A large crowd attended. The lawn at the Catholic
church grounds had been well decorated and brilliantly illuminated. The
Cranbrook city baud rendered selections from eight o'clock until eleven.
A line collection and display ol

and prettily displayed under small

Although among the many appliances with which inventors have sought
to supply the modern need for portable wireless telephone and tele
graph communication there are none
which meet the requirements of the
Forest Protection organization of the
west, yet it is hoped that the day is
not far distant when every (ire warden wandering in the woods will he
able to summon help tn fighting fires
without the delay caused in reaching
a telephone line. Meanwhile, however, tho manufacturers of clcctrica
appliances have done a great deal to
moot the needs of forestry officials
At meetings of the Western Forestry
and Conservation association lumbermen have been particularly interested
in the exhibits of these companies.
For instance, then' are not only the
light telephone lines, such as those
that the foi est branch strings trom
tree to tree so as to extend telephony
communication in a rough ami ready
manner into thc woods, but there arc
also still lighter wires, four miles of
which can he carried on a man's
back, which can Ih* used as temporary feeders for the main forest lines.
When this field telephone system is
'installed in amy district tho efficiency
of a fire warden will be increased to
a tremendous extent. For instance
suppose he discovers a fire in Its ear
licr stages, instead of going back tr
the nearest settlement he can rush to
the nearest point of one of the forest
telephone lines, and, taking the portable instrument thae he carries with
him, can connect with the wire and
call for aid. Should
lie need to remain in charge of a fire
that is in some portion of his district remote from loads and settlements he can connect one of the very
light wires to the main wire and
trail it out through the woods "for
two or three, or even four miles,
and so long as the weather is dry so
that moisture does not spoil the conductivity o( the ground wire, his
portable instrument attached to the
end of this will enable him to keep
in touch with headquarters without
leaving the site of the lire. Of
course, all this installation! of field
telephone is a very different matter
lo the building of regular lines, such
as those established hy the telephone
companies for the service of the public, and it may be noted also that
the forest branch will install its field
fines only in isolated timbered districts in which 'there is no prospect
whatever of public telephone lines
being constructed, following out thc
practice already developed so extensively in the American States to
the south of this province where
lumbermen handle the problem
forest fire prevention through
agency of theur own voluntary
social ions.

When Summer
Stops the
i
Swing
Most of us can remember the
school lesson in the law of accumulated motion—momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in a swing,
you'll start him moving slowly
"to and fro." If you continue
to exert a pound of pressure
against him every time the swing
makes a trip, you'll soon have
him going so high that he almost
turns the whole circle. If you
stop pushing, the momentum will
die out and the swing come to rest
.      at " dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same
natural laws.
Keep it Going
by Advertising
Advertisements are the force
behind the swing of public favor.
Each new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force of these numerous
impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
If you stop Advertising, you
lose momentum.
The moral of which is: Don't stop
the business swing in summer.  Keep
adding the pounds of  Advertising
pressure.

Then, while the crowd was pouring Into the enclosure, came the staggering news thnt the (Jovetuor of

as a gate wus thrown open und Prljoli rhhpiliu dashed

tbe power mid speed of a runaway locomotive, The
man's face blanched momentarily; fur thu tlrst time be

Htlack was too suddenly renewed for defence or evasion. The cruel, needle pointed horns penetrated tbe
helpless horse's shoulder. As they withdrew, blood
covered. Pickett leaped between them tu Jiu bull's
head and clasped his units around the neck.
This wus the expected muiuent that had drawn
twenty-live thousand Mexicans to Kl Toreo (hat after*
noon. Kxperis bad conceded lhat the wonderfully
lithe and agile American might, perhaps, secure a hold
on the bull, but never, they declared, could he maintain thai bold for half a minute. One toss of tbe powerful head would dislodge him nnd then tbe end would

"Strip off your red shirt!"
"Now, when Pickett drops, you leap Into the enclosure, wave your garment as close to the bull as

Our watches showed that Pickett, perched precariously ou the hull's head, hud withstood the storm
of missiles for exactly seven minutes and a half
when tie* dreaded moment came. A bottle bit him
wilh a Hind full in the side. He groaned lu sudden

liver the barrier ut one bound hurdled a half naked
llgure. The bull glimpsed It even more milekly than
tlie astonished and dismayed human audience, for tbo
bated color red was being brandished almost In Krljoll
Olllqulta'l face. Vester Pegg was obeying orders In
the desperate emergency with haxurdoiis duplicity.
Tlie bull hesitated for one providential moment whether to turn u|sm tbe Insolent newcomer or to vent his
vengeance upon Ids helpless and fallen adversary.
Short as was the respite It saved hold men. Pickett
staggered to his feet, scrambled grogglly to the barricade und our outstretched bauds Iragged him to
safety. Pegg retreated precipitately and heat the bull
to succor by a foot Krljoll t'bbpiltu, doubly robbed of
prey, bellowed his Impotent rage und hatred to au

So ended the only atruggte uf Its kind that ever bas
or probably ever will take place, Tlie tumult over the
unexpected deliverance wus, of course, appalling. We
took refuge behind Iron gates lu one corner of Kl
Toreo und remained concealed for two boars. The
Governor then sent two hundred mounted soldiers
to tbe scene. They dispersed the more violent of the
spectators wbo remained, threatening our safety, and
escorted us back to our icnts, Tbere were small dem-
ouatralluns against us that nlgbt at our quarters on

When it is remembered that until a
little more than a quarter of a century ago thc interior of Hritish Columbia was absolutely undeveloped territory, lucking in mails and railway
transportation, and possessing only a
sparse population ol hutttors, miners,
prospectors and Indians, it must he
admitted thnt Kast aad West Kootenay and llie Boundary country has
developed al a rote that 18 truly remarkable. To tho pionor millmen
should go most of the credit, because
their enterprise anl firm faith in the
luture encouraged others -to follow in
tlieir footsteps. Every sawmill became thc cenitre of a little community,
or aided materially in the upkeep and
growth of some existing village or
settlement. T'o-duy fully one hundred
sawmills, large and small, are kept
busy catering to tlie prairie demand
for lumber, as well as the needs ol
the. many ranchers and Irult farmers
who are developing the fertile valleys
of the interior. Thousands of mcu
are given steady employment in the
mills ami camps, while the iavest-
ment in sawmills and limits runts
into many millions ol dollars. Thc
annual capacity ot the plants included in the Mountain Lumber Manutac-
turcrs' Association is approximately
live hundred million feet, which figure
is increased appreciably by the cut of
the smaller mills,
At Bull River, about a do/en miles
from Wardner, the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company owns enormous
limits and operates a tie and timber
mill of large capacity, about one hundred and fifty men being employed
from April until closing down time.
A townslte bas been laid out, witb
water and electric light systems, and
it is evident the company plans to
make Hull River an important, centre
of activity. Last season eight hundred men were employed in land-
clearing operations in the vicinity, it
being tlie intention to transform the
arable logged-ofl areas into ready-
made farms for settlers. Thc best of
tho timber is rcservtd for manufacture at the mill.
The Cranbrook Sash & Door Comj-
any, Limited, is being kept busy with
orders, thc local trade showing up
well, while prairie business is also
good. A number of improvements
have been carried out since last year
that are calculated lo take care ot
the increased output looked lor this
season.
Two new Watorous Company engines 20 s 24-in., also two new boilers 06-in. x Hi ft., will arrive this
month at Wardner lor Ibe new planing mill ol the Crows Nest Pass
Lumber Company, Limited. With
this new equipment added the company will have one ol tlie finest planing
mills in the interior.
Tbe output of the Adolph Lumber
Compaay, Limited, Baynes Lake,
Elko Valley, was held down to 7,000,
000 leet last season, • although the
plant has a capacity ol 00,000 leet
per ten hours. Thc reduced eat was
due to disturbed market conditions
on Uie prairies This season an early
start was made, a cut ol 11,000,000
feet being aimed at. Thc company,
ot whicli Fred. W. Adolph Is managing director, has about $500,000 invested in plant and timber, thc number o! men employed averaging about
1511.
Mr. Sadler, manager of the King
Lumber Company, Umitcd, Cranhrook, made a bad start this spring,
an unexpected delay having lieen met
wilh while effecting some changes In
the equipment. Despite lost time,
last year's cut will probably he exceeded, the intention being to oper
ate the plant on time and a quarter
schedule it tlie prairie demand war
rants.
There are tew better plants in tho
Mountains than that ol thu Baker
Lumber Company, at Waldo, in the
Elko Valley. The output last season
was reduced lo about 12,000 000 feet
owing to the low prices lor lumlier
on the prairies, hut this year the
company hopes to manufacture 10,-
000,000 feet. With this object In
view the plant was started up March
25, it being necessary to dynamite
tbe ice covering thc log pound in order to commence operations. The
plants has an output ol SO.000 leet
per ten hours, and will probably be
operated on tlmc-and-quarter schedule
until the tall. The plant represents
aa investment of $160,000, and Uie
extensive timber holding originally
secured lor $250,000 are to-day worth
$1,250,000. Thc oflioers of the company arc: V. Hyde Baker, Cranbrook,
president; Simon Taylor, Cranbrook,
vice-president; Walter Robertson, se-
cretay-treasurer C. D. McNab, managing director.
Despite the lact lhat many Mountain mills curtailed production last
year owing to the competition of
United Stales lumber in the prnirio
markets, the output of the Crows'
Nest Pass Lumber Company, Limited, witli mills at Wurdncr and
Galloway, was nearly normal, the
total being .15,539,000 feet. Thc cut
for the present year is expected to be
several million feet greater. The dally capacity ol the two plants is
about   800,000   leet per    ten hours.

ON DANCING
"Willie arts Improve in this aspiring
age.
Peers  mount  tlie coach-box,  heroes
tread the stage,
Ami waltzing   tetanies witb unblushing lace
Disdain to dance but in a man's embrace.
All   arts   improve, but  modesty   Is
dead,
And truth and virtue   with our bullion lied."
These lines, written by Sheridan in
1807, express the view once held ot
the waltz.  Nowadays   we regret to
see our   daughters   as   wnll-tlowers,
hut abhor   the   crude   but   natural
dancing   craze   of the   present day,
known as the turkey, trot, the bunny
