II. McNab, also Buffered wounds from
the gun in the bands of the oriental,
and was also brought to the hospital,
Latest advices from the hoBpftal are
to the effect that both are making as
good a recovery as can be expected.
Constable Sharp receiving the word
that Long Kee, a laundryman nt
Waldo, was acting strangely and
being woll armed, went to the place,
and with the assistance of McNab
endeavored to arrest the offender,
They were greeted with shots, none
of which took effect at that time. It
was therefore necessary to resort to
strategic measures to apprehend the
Chinaman, nnd by means of ammonia
put down the chimney it was sought
to drive him out, or slupify him so
that entry could be made to the place.
In the meantime assistance was forthcoming from the provincial constables at Wardner, Cranbrook, and
also from headquarters at Fern'.e.
When later it wns decided to batter
in the door of the laundry building,
Constable Sharp and McNab were engaged in this work, and when the door
gave way they were greeted with two
shots, both of which took effect, Constable Sharp bcing hit in tho jaw,
some teeth shot out and otherwise
painfully injured, and McNab was
injured in the cheek, but not as seriously. They were given first aid
treatment, and brought to Cranbrook
in the ambulance.

KIMBERLEY ALSO GROWS
Figures of intense interest to the
people of Cranbrook and the district are furnished by the office of
the Superintendent of Post Offices
for the Calgary District, and handed
on by W. M, Harris, postmaster in
this city. They show that Cranbrook
lias continued to register an increase
in postal revenue for the year ended
March 81st last. Even more spectacular is the increase in business
shown by the growing revenue of the
post office at Kimberley, where an
increase of about forty per cent was
registered, undoubtedly the most substantial increase shown anywhere in
the  district of thc inspectorate.
It is nlso interesting to note that
while Cranbrook, Kimberley and Fernie, the principal East Kootenay
points, all register increases, some
prairie points are seen to indicate
decreased business, which may be
taken as nn accurate reflection of
business conditions in the two districts respectively.
The figures are as follows:

It was not surprising Una with
the coming of age of the eagerly
looked forward to event- the,
Trainmen's ball, this year's function was just R llttlo bit the best of
any of the twentj one of which it was
the last. Although there were not less
than four other function! of s pub-;
lie nature, and an attractive picture,
at the Star which met with a big reception, the Auditorium was parked
to the limit on Friday evening lost
hy those anxious to greet the New
Year dancing with the Trainmen and
iheir efficient Ladies" Auxiliary. No
pains had been spared to make lhe
affair a,grand success and that they
succeeded in their efforts was the
testimony of all wlio had the pleas-!
ure of being present.
The hall was uttractivaly decorated
in the well known colors of the*
Trainmen—red and green, the wall
being practically covered with bunting, while paper hangings of red,
White and blue encircled the dancing
floor. In the centre was suspended i
a paper dome and underneath it was'
a spread eagle looking down on thej
merry makers. Provision had Iieen,
made for the orchestra by the erec-
Hon of a balcony in the southwest
corner of the hail, this providing
more room on the platform to neat
the guests at the big supper which'
has become a verv Important feature
of the function. This year's supper j
was beyond description—everything j
be.ng there that one could desire.
The music, which was supplied hy j
Mark Hampton's orchestra, of Bonner's Ferry, was much appreciated,
the players performing a herculean!
task in playing for the long period
demanded by this event.    For about1
an hour and a half Mrs. Art. Wallace's   Bluebird   orchestra,   who   had
been offered the full contract to play
for the dance, furnished the music,
also to the entire satisfaction of the
crowd, thus helping out  in a admirable way the visiting orchestra.
As the eventful hour approached,
all eyes were centered on the stage,
for there had been whispering that, |
as usual, the trainemn were going]
to pull off something original typi-i
fying thc passing of the old nnd the;
coming of the new yoar. In this!
they were not disappointed [or iust

As announced last week, W. 1*
Cameron has definitely decided to
run for the office of mayor for tho
city at the civic elections next week,
contesting tho offlce with T. M. Rob
erts, wlm has filled the office for the
past two years. In this issue Mr
Cameron makes a lengthy statement
to the electors, giving his reason for
allowing liis name to go up, which is
based on the method Iii wliich the
city has carried oui the program of
road and street Improvements during
the past year.
Also tn this issue Mayor Robert
has issued a statement showing the
disposition of the funds which were
voted last year in tiie three by-laws
totalling $45,000, from the proceed;
of which the new road equipment
was to be purchased, and the money
provided for the work.
Tho election will undoubtedly Rive
rise to much interest, as while Mayor
Roberts has had «'i unusually long
municipal experience, Mr, Cameron
has also served two years in the mayor's chair, as well as two years as
alderman.
For the four vacancies which will
appear on the city council, thore arc

being Alderman F. M. MacPherson
and Alderman J. H. Camoron, which
will leave one other to he elected

Will not be in the running, but J, A.
Arnold, a former alderman, has announced bis willingness to run again,
and his card is seen in this issue.
The three vacancies on the school
board, caused by the expiration of
the terms of F. H. Dezall. the chairman, Mrs. J. Jackson and W. Henderson, will most likely be filled by
their re-election, It being stated that
all three are willing to stand again,
and most likely in anv case to be
elected.
Whether W. F. Attridge will be
re-elected to the police commission again by acclamation is not yet
known, there being evident*, s in some
directions of a desire to bring oui
someone to oppose him. The name

ANNUAL MEETING AND
DINNER NEXT WEEK
Started four yenrs ago, the annual get-together of thc Crauhrook
fire fighting laddies hns become u
function of the city which those fortunate enough to be permitted to be
present look forward to with much
interest. While sponsored by the fire
department, it has become an occasion at which llu- heads of the
various civic departments gather to-
gethorwlth the eity fathers and matters of mutual interest arc discussed.
As   explained   by   the   hOSl    of    thfl
evening. Chief Adams, the number
invited is limited by the room available in the hall.
Thursday evening lasl al seven
p.m.. about thirty took their places

of the living rooms of the fire halt,
when there was partaken of a most
sumptuous repast. All were pi
of robust appetites, and due justice
was done to the excellently COOkod
turkey antl ils accompaniment- with
which the boards were laden.
Mr. C. J. Lewis, who acted as toast
master, after proposing the toatt to
thfl King, called upon Mayor Roborta
for an address. En responding, His
Worship thanked bis hosts for the
opportunity of being present al a
function which, he thought, compel I
ed very favorably with any other held]
in the city. He fell thai such func-]
tloni served to link tin* departments!

manner not otherwise possible, and
was a source of mutual benefit. Ile
expressed bis appreciation of iIn-
work of the department, and trusted
lhat they would bfl able to keep up
their  good record.
Favored Larger Program
In reference to the recent visit of
Deputy Fire Marshal McDonald and
his recommendations re a fire lad
der truck and a new hall, His Worship intimated thnt he was in sympathy with thc recommendations and
would favor them provided the necessary money could be raised. With
respect to civic affairs, the mnyor
pointed out that while there had been
certain criticism in some quarters,

FIRE DESTROYS
MAIN FAIR BUILDING
ON MONDAY NIGHT
One of the most spectacular fires
in the district for many years burned unchecked on Mondny evening.
when the main fair building, on the
hill west of the track, was burned
down, the fire originating from some!
unknot n cause. Being outside the
city limits, the city fire department
was nol called upon to   po   to   thej
blase, and there being no water connection available, nothing could be
done to cheek the flames, and the j
building went up very rapidly, being
n totnl l«>s.- The place was owned
bj W. O. Uren, a former C.P.R. |
superintendent here, no win Montreal, and Insurance to the extent of
13,000 was carried, it is understood.
The preinisos were under lease to the

WHAT PLACES WILL
GET BEER LICENSES IN
Cin IS QUESTION
Rumoi has been current in the
city during the pant few days to the
effect that the liquor board ot Vie-.
loi in has decided that four beer per-1
h>r licenses only will be granted In'
Cranbrook) though twelve appllca-l
lions have been made. It has been
further stated thnt the choice has
been made of the Cranbrook, Canadian, Queens and Italia Hotels,
though there is apparently no direct
foundation for this conclusion. The
fact that work has been in progress
at the Canadian Hotel and the Cranbrook in preparation for the installation of beer parlors would Indicate
that these two places are likely to get
licenses for the sale of beer by the
glass, hut at tbe middle of the week
neither of the other two places mentioned hnd received any direct word.
At the Crnnbrook, the quarters of

Winter Carnival For Cranbrook
At the regular meeting of the
Cranbrook Rotary Cluh held on Tuesday last, the matter of a winter carnival for this city was brought up
by Mayor Roberts, and an interesting
discussion ensued in connection
therewith. The proposed time for
the carnival is llio first week in February, and the program to be provided will include all the accustomed
■parte for such nn occasion.
Report  for  Past  Year and
Plans for 1927 to be
Outlined
The annual meeting of the Cranbrook Agricultural Association will
be held in the K. P. Hall on Wednesday, January 12th, at 7 p.m. sharp.
The first Item on the program will
be the annual dinner, which will commence promptly nt 7 p.m., as there
is considerable business to be brought
up for discussion. After the dinner,
the 1026 fall fair will come up for
consideration and the association will
welcome conservative criticism that
will assist in making the 1027 fall
fair bigger and better than ever.
The question of fall fairs in Kast
Kootenay was brought up at ithe
meeting of the District Institute in
Cranbrook a couple of months ago,
when representatives were present
from Natal, Golden, the Windermere
districts, as well as other parts of
Kast Kootenay, and it was felt by
those present that the fairs in this
district should run in a circuit, culminating in Cranbrouk, so tbat exhibits could be shown at the local
points first and all assemble, or the
winning exhibits assemble, at a dislricl fair In Cranbrook. Also, it was
suggested lhat the Cranbrook f
should feature a district exhibit cu
petition which, in the local district*,
would lie fostered by the Farmers'
Institutes or Agricultural Association,
It was felt that u competition of this
kind would do considerable good, as
it would be good advertising for the
districts competing and il would a:
sist in creating an interest in the
Cranbrook fall fair throughout the
district of Kast Kootenay.
These and other matters pertaining
to the 1927 fall fair will be brought
before the meeting so that everyone
interested in the district fall fair
should make an effort to be present.
Other features of the evening will be
the presentation of medals won at
the Coast fairs to the hoys and girla
Competing from the Cranbrook district, ond election of officers for 1!)27.
Plan to keep this date open and
support the fair with your presence
at the annual  meeting.

Ross, the Chief Justice, was repulsed in tbe most contemptuous

was now determined to terrify the

Scott's Caie
lt will not be necessary to repeat
what is known of Thomas Scott. He
had quarrelled with his chief, Snow,
over bis wages. He had been sent
as a messenger from Dr. Scbmitz's
warehouso and bad been detained as
a prisoner. He hnd escaped on the
night of January 9th, and had been
recaptured witli tbe Portage La
Prairie party on February 17th. It
was slated tbat he bad reviled the
preside nt and had resisted his guards.
It must be stated, on tbe other hand
thai Scott bad never been taken under aims; that be attributed hits i
capture in both cases tu foul play;
ihal Riel specifically promised the',
Commissioner not only the lives, but
the release of all the prisoners; and
ihat there were Instances of degrading insults forced upon several of
ihem. Scott was an adept at ridicule antl horseplay, There is evidence
that his violence was verbal rather
than physical. The Canadians suid
Kiel bad" laughed at and despised the
Ficnch half breeds, believing that
thoy would not dare to take the life
of anyone. Scott himself was "abusive" and "insulting" to tho president. No attempt was made to utilize the influence, persistently volunteered, of the Commissioner and
Archdeacon McLean, to quiet tbo
prisoners.
Shot to Death* ■""***"
The election had taken place on
February 20th. The Council was not
called; the officials nominated by the
committee of the convention were
not consulted; even tho Chief Justice
was not present at the "trial."
"Even the decencies of an ordinary
drum-head courtmnrtial," wrote Lord
DufFerln in 1874, "were disregard'
ed," At the trial of Lepine in 1K7-I
Joseph Nolin, secretary of the adju
lant-general, testified that Riel wiu
lho only accuser. That be was sworn
lo prove his charge by Nolin himself. \
That when after the "trial," Scott I
was summoned, Kiel made the charge
against Scott verbally, and was the
only man who spoke. Scott was
charged with insubordination and
with breaking parole. No counsel
was allowed. No opportunity was
given of defending himself. No evidence was produced upon one charge
at least, which is now known to have
been altogether unfounded. Scott
never took an outh of nny kind of
Kiel's proposing, The prisoner was
condemned to death by five out of
seven votes. Kiel announced what
tin* sentence was. when and whero
to he executed. The courtmnrtial
wns held on March llrd. Seott was
condemned to be shot nt noon the
next day. At eleven o'clock, when
the Commissioner was informed of
the sentence, he believed it "too mom
stninus to he possible."    Scott him
self believed that, they merely intond-
od to frighten him. Kiel, was not
to be moved. Protesting against coldblooded murder, Scott was led outside lhe eastern gate of tbe fort, and
was shot by six men, several of whom
were intoxicated, one* of whom re-
fused io prime bis rifle, and one of
whom discharged a pistol at the pris^
oner as be lay moaning on the
ground. The body, refused to friends
for burial, was secretly disposed of,
while tin. empty coffin was buried in
tbe  courtyard   uf   fort  Garry.
"The death of Scott struck horror," writes BegK\ "into the minds of
all classes in tbo settlement." When
Smith reached Ottawa with the "bad
news," the governor-general informed ih..* colonial secretary by telegraph.   "Ir is quite clear," he added

death "should he ascribed to inex-

to the colonial secretary that the

FRESH GAINS
SCORED BY
FRENCH FRANCS
Advance Gathers Momentum as Confidence
Reaches Into Every Fibre
Of Nation*s Life
GOVT. BONDS EAGERLY SOUGHT
Tax-Exempt,  Guaranteed Securities Provide
One of  the Best Investments  Ever
Presented to  the Public
*UTE BELIEVE that an investment
" made today in French Government
6% Bonds (Loan authorized Dec. 16th,
1920; redeemable at par at the option of
the Government on or after Jan. 1st,
1931), presents an exceptional opportunity for profit on any material advance in
the value of French money (Francs).
Due to the depreciation of French
Francs a French Government 6% Bond
(of 1,000 francs denomination) can now
be bought for $34.00, with French exchange at normal (19.3c per Franc) the
•ante Bond would have a value of $193,00.
I International bankers believe French
Francs will sell at 10 cents per Franc before very long. Just think what this
means to French Government Bonds;
with the Franc worth 10 cents, each Bond
of 1,000 francs will have a value of
$100.00—a rise of over 194%, or a profit
of $66.00 for every $34.00 invested today.
With the franc selling at IS cents, each
Bond of 1,000 Francs will have a value of
$150.00, a rise of more than 241%, or a
net profit of $116.00 for each Bond of
1,000 francs, or for every $34.00 invested
today.
We made a lengthy and thorough investigation to determine the best way to
buy French Francs for maximum profits.
We are of the opinion that these French
Government 6% Bonde afford the best
medium, for they represent to French
investors precisely what British Government and our Canadian Government
Victory Bonds represent to us, being legal
investments for every Institution, Trust
Fund ond Savings Bank in France, and
constituting a strictly high-grade Government investment. They may be sold
again instantly for spot cash, as they are
listed on the Paris Stock Exchange and

► French Government Bondrwill,'we
believe, unquestionably come back to
normal ($193.00 per 1,000-franc Bond.)
The United States * ere financially bankrupt after the Ci\ il War. Their securities
could be bought for a song, yet in a few
years the Americans were on their finan
cial feet again, and today are considered
the richest nation in the world.
Even England was once faced with
what seemed to be a financial disaster.
With Napoleon virtually pounding at her
gates, British Bonds went for next to
nothing, but the victory at Waterloo sent
them sky-rocketing. The Rothschild
family accumulated the major portion of
its wealth by investing in British bonds
and selling them when Wellington's victory became known.
The experience of France, too, bank-
tupt at the hands of Bismarck, is within
the memory of living man. iier Bonds
sold down to 7% of their vnlue after the
Franco-Prussian War. They appeared
hopeless, yet in two years they had recovered 95%, making fortunes for the far-
sighted investors who had the courage to
invest in them. When millions of men and
populations of nations lend tlieir collective efforts to the task—nothing is impossible. The French franc will undoubtedly come back to normal.
A study of history convinces one forcibly that the most difficult thing in the
world to destroy is national existence.
History is repealing itself. The opportunity of a lifetime, to earn remarkable
profits, exists today for investors, through
the purchase of these high-grade French
Government Bonds. They rank as the
pre-eminent class of French Government
securities, and are virtually a first mortgage on the entire assets and resources of
the vast and wealthy Republic of France.
The Bonds are valid for 30 years after
maturity, and the interest coupons for 5
years after their respective maturity
dates, thus enabling; the investor to cash
them at any time the exchange rates are
favorable.
France is a first-class commercial, naval
and military power of the world. French
industries are thriving and working overtime. France is exporting goods to every
country of the globe; her shipping is
crowding the world's ports, and the nation shows every evidence of industrial
and economic progress. Reparation payments from Germany are: further enhancing the French treasury. These conditions
will be quickly reflected in a rapid rise in
the French Franc, which in turn increases
the value of French Government Bonds.
That is why we urge ynu to buy French
Government Bonds NOW, while they
are on the bargain counter.
INTEREST INCOME
The income from the iverag. cotpoi .tion
or industrial Bo-iii is fixed, that i. to s;y. a
6*To Bond of J 1.000 dcnominatloo yield,
exactly $60.00 every year until maturity.
The income from French Government 6%
Bond, comprises many of the attractive
features of CO ordinary thin, or share ot
common stock. While tlie Income expressed
in French money remain, fixed the value
.*f that money to the Canadi '.it or American
investor depends upon the exchange value
ol the French franc expressed in dollars.
Thus it wil! be seen that al the present
rale for the franc the holder of n lo.n.w-
l-'ianc Bond will receive for Ills coupons
a.cremating always 600 franc, por annum a
lum in Caua.h.in money equivalent *o a
return of nearly 7% on Ills investment, that
i... on the cost of his 10.000-Franc Boot
which al the ptcsent time is Ja-to.OO.
When the fiauc reaches 8 cents, however.
the value of tile coupons will be much
hither; 600 francs will Ire worth Jts.00
which on an investment ol $340.00, is coual
ID a yield of 11%. Few common stock,
offer so atlra.live a return.
When thc fiane has reached 10 cents or
Sl.OOJ.OO per 10,000-lranc Bond the return
will be proportionately higher, livery 600
francs in interest coupons will bring $60.00
when caahed. Her. the yield i. more than
I7K»,
At 15 cenls per ftanc the coupon, on a
10,000-lranc Bond costing only $340.00 today (cormal value $l,0J0.0O—a profit on
the principal of $I.SV0.00) will be worth
So00, representing  a.   return   of   tret
And lastly, wilh the franc at par. i.e.
10.3 cents or $1,9.30.00 per 10,000-franc
Bond, thc coupons for cue year amounting
to 600 francs will bc worth $115.80—an
amount equivalent to a return ol nearly
34-14% en tlte original investment et
$340.00.

A genera! heavy rain and thaw

Mr. Fleming stated thnt he had
chosen as the subject for his somewhat impromptu talk "Whnt was the
true relation of athletics in the
scheme of life." In an interesting
way he showed that idealistic characters such as saints were those
that won for themselves our admiration, aptly asking what could
more readily win our respect thnn a
real athlete—a husky man of
strength and virility? Asserting that
he could not agree with the old belief that athletics were not in line
witli lhe highest things in life, he first
showed bow play is the most natural
thing in life, and by reference to the
life of Christ, nointed out many instances from which it could be readily inferred that the acknowledged
leader of men must hnve possessed
all the characteristics of un athlete
und was a man of strength.

Greep, due to complications following his birth, appeared to be in the
best of health until about nn hour
or so previous to his death, although
in Saturday the infant appeared to
have a slight cold remedies for which
were applied. The baby seemed improved on Sunday morning, und Mr.
Greep left for his work as usual. A
few moments luter the baby was
found to he unconscious, and death
took place shortly afterwards, due,
it is understood, to pneumonia. Even
yet, it seemed us though fate had a.
few nunc hard blows for the unfortunate family, since n few hours
the younger son, Earl, was I
threatened also with pneumonia, and

We have read several times re
cently lhat New Yeur resolutions nre
not being resolved nny more, and
ihai they are completely out of date,
tin* Mime as hairpins, etc., but we
are still Bceptlcal as to the truth of
this. There are several reasons why
people will continue to make resolutions al the beginning of the yenr,
even though they will probably not
keep them. For instance, a resolu
lion lo be more economical comes almost automatically, after the Christmas orgy of benevolence and "spend-
itis." Among the kiddies (and many
of the "never-grow-older" kids) the
resolution to eat more sparingly is
apt to be prevalent, while some
Christmas gift cigars nre said ...
■imply breed non-smoking resolutions.
Then again, on the more serious side,
gifts and cards from almost forgotten friends stir in most of us a resolution to keep up a better correspondence. Thore may be dozens of
other instances, if wc stop to look,

day, was captured by Sgt, Georgo
Greenwood of the provincial police
about It o'clock Friday morning, after
a 12-hour siege, during which time
the ofllcers attempted to drive him
from his securely barricaded premises and  captured  unharmed.
In the end, however, the Chinaman
wua not rendered incapacitated until
a withering gunfire had been concentrated on the building, under cover
of which lurge charges of dynamite
were pluced in front of and ut thc
rear of the building. Following setting otf these blasts fire broke out
of the front of the laundry building
nnd entry from the rear was effected by Sgt. Greenwood, who found
Long Kee unconscious and rescued
him alive. It wns later discovered
the Chinamen had a bullet wound
in the abdomen. He was taken to
the Fernie General Hospital, where
he died on Saturday.
Other casualties resulting from thc
mnnhunt ure Constable Sharpe, bullet wound in the right side of his
face, which shattered the upper and
lower teeth nnd splintered the lower
jaw, the bullet exuding from the
mouth, and Frank McNab, gunshot
wound in the face below the right
eye.
Constables E. Davies and Ira
Brown of the provincial police, Fernie, hud narrow escapes from being
wounded as n result of the vicious
fire kept up by the demented recluse, sevtM'iii bullets grazing their
clothing.
Not   Easily   Overcome
The insane Chinaman displayed
wonderful cunning in hastily preparing to withstand attempts to effect
his capture by heavily barricading
the three-storey building in which he
operated the laundry under the name
of Chong Quay Co. The doors were
ull reinforced with bags of rice, boxes
and piles of laundry. Every window
wns bourded up on the inside, while
at various pluces he arranged loopholes through which he could observe
approach from al] directions. Armed
with a forty-five Webblcy-Scott service revolver and hundreds of rounds
of ammunition, the bloodthirsty lunatic proceeded to greet any human
intrusion with persistent aud uncomfortably accurate gunfire. The initial attempts to dislodge him were
entreaties to peaceably give himself
up, these even being conveyed to him
in his own language by other Chinese
Waldo residents. Response to all appeals wns bullets. Under cover of
darkness un attempt was made to
batter down the front entrance and
the use of tear gas bombs composed
of ammonia and mustard composition, but these proved ineffectual
Finally by renewed nttneks with battering rams, small appertures were
made, into which were thrown stink
pots composed of burning sulphur
and cuyenne popper. During an attack made by Sergt. Greenwood, uc-
companied by Constuble Shurpe and
Mr. McNubb, the two latter received
their wounds. Dynamite wus then
brought into play, nt first two sticks
at a time being exploded ut convenient points near the building, cart
being exercised not to demolish the
structure, in the hope thnt Long
Quny would be scured into surrendering himself. About midnight the
Chinaman's fire ceased, nnd observers approached the building, nnd to
them it appeared thut the sulphur
fumes were so dense that human life
could not exist within the building,
but when entry wns attempted hi
ugnin opened fire. The police thereupon responded and two lurge charges of dynamite were placed nt front
and rear of the luundry and exploded
simultaneously. The building caught
fire in tha front, whereupon Sergt.
Greenwood boldly forced entry
through u rear window, and found
Long Kee unconscious. He conveyed him safely outside, whereupon he
wns tuken by motor cur to the Fernie
hospital.

ATHLETICS ADJUNCT
TO CHRISTIANITY, IS
THEME OF SPEAKER
Wednesduy evening the regular
meeting of the Cranbrook Brotherhood was held in the schoolroom of
•he United Church, when after bar-
nking of an excellent supper nnd nn
enjoyable sine song, the meeting hnd
the pleasure of listening to nn address from the guesft of the evening,
Rev, Mr. Fleming, of Lumborton nnd
Moyie. As intimated by members who
moved a vote of thanks to the speuker, his remnrks were much appreciated. The subject, while of a religious nature, wns considered interesting und profitable on account of
the unique angle from which it was
dealt with. As pointed out by one
of the speakers, the address showed
that contrary to the somewhat popular opinion that followers of "The
Man of Nazarreth" were of necessity
SOLEMN SERVICES AT
ST. MARY'S ON FEAST
OF THE HOLY NAME
The feast of the Holy Name was
celebrated in St. Mary's Church on
Sunday last, with all the pomp of
Catholic liturgy. At 10.00 a.m. a
solemn High .Mass wns celebrated by
the pastor, Rev. Father Ehmann,
O.M.I., assisted by Rev, Futher Ted-
row, O.M.I., of St. John's College.
Edmonton, as deacon, and Rev. Father Cullinan, CM.I., ns sub-dencon.
The choir sang Coneonne's Mass,
which contributed greatly to the
beauty and solemnity of the Feast.
In mi eloquent sermon, the preacher, Rev. Father Tedrow, O.M.I.,
showed in a masterly manner the duties and responsibilities of mun to
Cod, liis Creator and Redeemer.
This solemn High Mass, a privilege
rarely enjoyed in this parish, was
greatly enjoyed by a large and de-
vout congregation.
Tho same evening took place the
reception of the Altnr boys into St.
John':* Berchmnn's Society, an organization introduced into the parish
by the pastor. Rev. Futher Ehmann
in introducing the preacher, expressed the hope thnt the rnnks of the
IS members elect included some who
would later in life be invested with
(lie power nnd dignity of priesthood,
and join in the great work of serving
the Catholic Church in Canada and
Hritish   Columbia.
The pulpit was occupied by the
preacher of the Mass. He chose as
liis subject the higher spiritual life,
dearly defining sacerdotal nnd re-
ligious vocations, nnd setting forth
ihe spiritual qualities and virtues required of" a person aspiring to religion or priesthood.
The ceremony und sermon were
followed by Benediction of the
Blessed Sacrament given bv Rev.
Father Cullinan, O.M.I.
A word of appreciution is due the
Rev. Pastor, Father Ehmann, O.M.I.,
for his tireless efforts in connection
wiih the welfare of the parish in
general and especially the work he
has necomplished in connection with
the Altar boys ns 11 result of his labors.
It is the sincere wish of every par-
ishonor that the foundation of the,
new church will be commenced at an
early date us possible, as the present
building is much too small to ac-
commodate the congregation that is
growing steadily.
lt is estimated the new structure
will cost about $25,000.00 and will
have over double the seating capacity
of the present building. The new
church is to be of Romanesque design, and will prove when completed
one of the most artistic buildings in
the eity.
NATIVE SONS SUGGEST
BIG CELEBRATION
FOR DIAMOND JUBILEE

virile red-blooded men, strong both tical nature could be evolved.
Wednesduy evening, nt the regulur
merting of Cranbrook Assembly, No,
22, Native Sons of Cunudu, the matter of the celebration of Cunada's
diamond jubilee was considered, and
the committee which hns been appointed for some time to deal with
the mutter, brought it up for dis
cussion. The committee were of the
opinion thnt the day should be mark*
ed in some special way, as it was
apparent would be the cuse in every
centre in Cunada. They felt, however, lhat while it wus possibly up
to them to take the initiative in the
mutter, they were of the opinion that
it.wns one in which every organization of u public or semi-public na-
iure should co-operate. It was therefore decided that this decision us to
llieir position should be conveyed to
the bodies referred to, und they be
asked to contribute their opinion us
to such u eelebrntion, and appoint a
delegate to a gcnerul meeting. It
was felt by some thnt the territory
should not be confined to Crnnbrook,
but .should include other towns.
While functions of n patriotic nature
should mark the day in each place
in the district, thc matter of the
selection of tlie place for the. big
celebration should be decided by this
committee. Thc right of Kiniberley
to the dny for celebration purposes
was admitted. It wns suggested,
however, thnt in the light of the exceptional circumstnnces, a modification of the arrangement might be
mnde whereby all points interested
would be sntisfied. Many places
regularly hold two days' celebration
in honor of Confederation—It has
boon therefore suggested that Thursday the 1st be featured by Kimberley, nnd Friday the 2nd be the big
day in Crnnbrook, u program to be
drawn up by the committee covering
the two days, so thut the interest of
both pluces might bc adequately safeguarded. It wns felt that a* a result

Baker Street brought to (trade by the

Hanson Avenue and Van Home Street and
the addition of considerable filling between
Norbury and Fenwick Avenues, amounting to
to an average of more than twelve inches of

crushed rock with the necessary filler was
then placed followed by a secondary coat of
crushed rock; two coats of Tarvia were applied over an area of 38,600 square feet; 400

Thc cost of acquiring a rock pit, clearing right-of-way, installing power line to the rock pit and setting up the crusher to the
amount of $1,498.27 has been capitalized with the idea of spreading
it over a i>eriod of five years and onlv one-fifth of the amount is
taken to account in the above costs, 'the above amount is made up
as follows:—
City Transfer Company contract  $    171.25
Labor          348.20
Wiring and accessories         287.17
Poles            169.00
Transformers         422.65
Land Purchase :         100.00
The cost of the work on Baker Street is within $300.00 of the
original estimates, and in this connection it might be stated that the
original estimates were based on using pit-run gravel and that it was
later found necessary to move and install the crusher at its present
location in the new rock-pit. The material from the new pit, while
considered much more suitable for street work than pit-run gravel,
is much more costly to produce. It should also be stated that the
original estimates included Tarvia "B" which was later changed to
Tarvia "X," the latter being a heavier product and necessitating more
expensive equipment for its application.

In connection with the sidewalk work accomplished il should
be noted that several difficult and rather expensive sections were
undertaken, including the retaining wall on Baker Si reel, as well
as cxccsslvt grading on Cranbrook Street anil excessive filling on
.Armstrong and Hanson Avenues.
The necessity for changing the location of the rock crusher
as well as the late arrival of tlie Tarvia kettle, and the delay in
getting the equipment working owing lo proper screens not having
ieen supplied by the manufacturers, held up the work on Baker Street
about five weeks longer than would ordinarily have been necessary.
•The above figures include all charges to December 1st, aud
payroll charges for thc month of December. It is anticipated that
the final figures will bc altered by a few December accounts which
have not yet been passed. Thess1, however, will not materially affect
the cost of the work.
In conclusion wc wish to state that every effort has been made
to handle thc undertaking of the proposed street program iu Ihe best
interests of all concerned and wc feel safe in assuring you that if
the program is continued it will bc found that it will save thc
ratepayers considerable money in the long run.

and fears expressed that the estimates had been overrun, he wns glud
to be able to assure them thut when
these were made up it would be seen
that the engineer's estimates hail
been well maintained. It was true
there had been setbacks and disappointments, which had been unavoidable, such as the re-locating of their
rock crushing plant, causing not only
delay, but an expense which though
at present charged up to operation,
Bhould in reality be chargeable to
plant. His Worship concluded by
wishing host and guests a Happy New
Year.
Mr.-H. Collier was next to express
his appreciation as one of the invited
guests.
Alderman Fink, who followed was
hailed as the daddy of fire fighting
affairs in Cranbrook, and intimated
that while no one was anxious to see
taxes go up, he was forced to admit
the necessity of a new hall and equipment, adding as it undoubtedly would
to the efficiency and comfort of the
brigade. In connection therewith Mr.
Fink was reminiscent of the old days
when, after a fire, all sorts of measures had to be resorted to to get a
line of hose thawed out with the thermometer at 32 below zero.
Mining   m   Big   Thing
Mr. Santo, introduced as the chairman of the Board of Trade committee on mining, was pleased to hear
of tbe optimistic reports with regard
to the city and concured in the belief that Cranbrook's future was very
bright. He urged all to put their
shoulders to the wheel and assist
whenever possible. He considered
that mining was the next field to
which Cranbrook had to look, claiming that the Sullivan mine was but
the forerunner of many important
mining projects. At the mining convention at Nelson he ft ■it that Cranbrook made nn excellent impression.
In response to u toust to the
police, Chief Halcrowe thanked
those who put forward the toast for
their kind reference to his depart-1
ment, nnd in extending to all the
best wishes of the season he coupled
with it a promise of the continuation
of the best service possible to tht
citizens.
Aldermen   Sj.«-.. K
Alderman Flowers, after oxti n I
ing greeting to tho Fire department,
gave u short outline of the history of
the light department whicli spoke
well for its* management since ii became a city utility. He pointed ou1
that were it not for the profits derived from the light department the
citizens would have nn extra 8 mills
to pay on their tuxes. Figures weru
given to show the largo increase in
tho husiness of the department.
Chairman Lewis then favored with
a reading from Service, "lho Cremation of Sum McGee.
Alderman J. H, Cameron's addre
was one of much public hfterest,
forming as it did an interesting re
sume of civic affairs. "Jiinnii
showed that as a representative ol
the citizens he is intimately in touch
with its management and needs. After extending thanks to Fire Chief
Adams he paid tribute to the excellent manner in which he was conducting the affairs of the several offices
which he is cnlled upon to fill. With
respect to the street work Ml*. Cameron's explanation of conditii n
which hud to be met was of Interest,
nnd as he intimated, would, if Beri
ously considered, give a different
complexion to the criticisms which
have been levelled at the city management during the past year. He
pointed out that much work had
been done by the department this
years which would not ho apparent
till next year. The plant for crushing wns limited in capacity and the
work had been done in a banner
which would eventually prove to be in
tho city's best interests. Plan
the completion of tho top Burffl
of Baker Stret, he said, were mado.
With regard to sewer and water
works affairs nn account of the conditions nnd requirements in connection with them was given.
Mr. C. R. Ward took thc opportunity   to   compliment   the   fir i   >:■ |

for the excellent service wh ch tl
were rendering,  nnd  suggested

(Text: 2 King!
Is it possible to li
straightforward
mi much sin, t
Can a man remain Christian at heart
and life and continue to come into
contact uilli an mi-Christian nnd unbelieving world? Men are facing
Ihese questions today, and many are
honestly seeking to live commendable
lives in spite of the discouraging conditions in which they are placed. It
has been said that u man cannot be
engaged in competitive business and
successfully apply New Testament
methods in his business dealings. It
Is impossible, for instance, to apply
the "goldi n rule." when every other
person in industry makes the "rule
uf gold" the standard. It is impossible, ihey say, to live above rein do justly, love mercy,
IniiubK before Cod" is Impracticable.
Facing   tbe   Facts
Il would be sheer folly for any-
proaeh;
and v/i'
righteous; that the church haa not
always lived up to its high calling;
that there are crimes committed
wholesale ugainst humanity in general and against peace-loving honest
people in particular; that there are
forces banded together which threaten the destruction of human souls,
and alas, how often the warning of
Jesus respecting such is unheeded,
for there are people who, while they
seek the destruction of the body arc
not contented until they have destroyed both body and soul in the hell
of debauchery, shame and death.
Granting all these things there is still
hope when we remember that there
are tremendous invisible powers nt
our command. "And he answered
and suid, 'Fear not, for they that be
with uh are more than they thai be
with them.' And Elisha prayed ami
said, 'Lord, open the eyes of the
young man that he may see.' And
the Lord opened his eyes ami he saw
and behold, the mountain was lull ui'
horses and chariots ef fire round
about Elisha."
Setting   of   the   Text
The setting of the text is probably
familiar to most people, lt was a
time when Israel and Syria were fairly matched foes. The Syrians coveted the land occupied hy Israel, and
yet they were deeply In the debt of
Israel because of the fact that Naa-
man, their comander-in-chief, hud
been cured of the loathesome disease
of leprosy through thfl power of Israel's God at the hands of the prophet
Elisha. But they must forget this
debt if they were to attain to the power and prestige among the nations
lhat they so much desired. One great
obstacle was in their way. Elisha,
the "man of God" seemed to be endowed with specially keen insight, so
much so that every movement of Syria was anticipated by Israel. If
Israel was to be conquered, then this
"mun of God" must be removed.
With this idea in mind, the King of
Syria sent a mighty host by night to
Dothan, where Elijah was then living,
"and when the servant of the man ol
God wns risen early and gone forth,
behold, an host encompassed the city
both with horses and chariots. And
his servant snid unto him, 'Alas, mj
muster! How shnll we do'." And
he answered and snid, 'Fear not, foi
they that be with us are more then
they that be with them."
Elisha sees much more than the
servant is able to discern. He sees Je
hovah on his side. Aud not only does
he see it himself, but lie is able ulsu
to  mnke the trembling servant  see.
his eyes and he saw; and behold, the
mountain was full of horses and
chariots of fire round about Elisha."
In other words, the invisible forces
were marshalled out into the open,
and fresh courage and enthusiasm
came to the trembling, frightened
servant. ,
To go back to our previous questions: Can a man live a clean, Christian life in the face of so much sin?
Can a man engage in business and
that never grows old. It Is Interna*
tional and spans all generations, says
Clausen. Friendliness is a force that
the world needs far more than it
needs force of arms. Why is it that
so many Chirstian people never allow
this mighty power to manifest itself
in their Hves when the world is in
so much need of genuine sympathy
and Christian love?

One thing ili.it player, should always
strivt! tn retain, in an open mind on all
questions. Dont allow yourself to become so sure of vour own skill that you
aren't willing to consider a -good sug-
gcstlon from a lother, On the other
hand, don't be too willing to follow
another's had. I.earn to consider both
points of view, your own and the other
fellow's, aud then draw your own conclusions. An open mind is u great asset,
as valuable at the auction table as
everywhere else. The point was well
illustrated tile other night and by the
following hand:

Imagine our modern cities without
taxis, or worse still without a speed
limit! One is accustomed to stop into
a taxi nnd reach a destination many
blocks or miles away in the space of
a few moments, yet within a speed
limit or all would be chaotic confusion
with taxis running wild through the
cities. Taxis and Speed are two words
synonymous in the United States and
elsewhere, There are, however, many
countries, especially in the immemorial East—which use conveyances
answering the same purposes for
which no speed limit is needed, they
move along in Hie leisurely way nf the
Orient, and yet moet tho requirements of people in those ancient
lands.
The sedan chair, snid to bo named
from Sedan, France, where it was
first made or used, is usi d extensively
in china. It i:i made for carrying a
single person and \a usually borne
on pole;; by two men.  lh iiiug Kong
rickshas are also used on the lower
levels of the eity, but the sedan
chairs are used on the hills.
The jinricksha of Japan, is the
nearest approach to a taxi, for this
thing that at times nearly bowls one
over, is the man-taxi of the Kast, the
rubber-tired, brass-lamped, white
cushioned vehicle.
Possibly Peking has the greatest
collection of strange foreign taxis
of any city. Through the Chicn Men
— the front door of Peking, come
strings of double-humped, long-haired
Hadrian camels from the Gobi
Desert, bringing tho very breath of
the desert with them and nil the
mystery of the Mongolian wastes.
The next vehicle that may enter the
Chion Men the mouth of that
fabled dragon whose eyes are two of
the other nine gates, and whose body
is the breathing eity itself, ia the
Peking cart.    This u drawn by a
little grey donkey, with a string of
clear ringing bells. This is a small
compact two-wheeled springless contrivance covered in blue and it is
sometimes drawn hy mules arrayed in
silver harnesses. A similar conveyance
is also favoured by the Japanese who
call it a "sado".
The camel-car of India is about the
oddest looking taxi of them all, and It
never breaks the speed limit. Camel-
back, too, is a very popular mode of
transportation and not too bad for
short distances. The native women,
also, nlay the part of taxis In India.

Crnnbrook, B.C.,
January fith, \927.
Owing to dissatisfaction with the manner
in which the affairs uf tlie City have been managed, particularly thc Department ol Works,
during thc past year, 1 have yielded to thc
pressure of numerous electors to offer myself
for the office of Mayor of the City of Crnnbrook for the coming year.
My previous experience of two years as
Mayor and two years as Alderman, and the fact
that I am now in Crauhrook all of the time
instead of one day out of three, as formerly,
gives me a greater opportunity to devote even
more of my time to the affairs of the City than
1 formerly did. though most of the electors will
agree with me in saying that 1 gave a good
deal of time to the City's alfairs while in the
offices (if Alderman and Mayor.
The electors will remember that a By-Law
was passed at the beginning of l()2o, authorizing the expenditure of $45,(XK>.00 for needed
improvements to our streets. Of this amount,
SJ-'.O-OO.IX) was for actual street improvements,
$15.11(1(1.1)0 for purchase of street making equipment and $S,(XX).(IO for sidewalks. In addition
to tins large amount some thousands of dollars
were to bc taken from current revenue for repairs to streets and sidewalks.
Business men who have pressed me to offer myself for the office of Mayor, have asked
the question, "What have we to show for the
large amounts of money which have been expended on our streets and sidewalks during
thc past year?" The electors who have observed the manner in which thc repairs to
Baker Street were made during lhc past summer are especially appealing for a more economical and businesslike administration. The
dissatisfaction with the past administration has
been caused by the great waste of time ill hauling and moving material for Baker Street, par-
licularly. For instance, afler a small amount
of crushed roek had been laid, the application
of Tarvia was delayed for over two weeks and
a force of men, under pay of the City, were
standing idly about till the administration
finally wakened up to the fact lhat outside help
was required and sent for au experienced
Tarvia operator to the Coast. Instead of having the Maker Street work completed by May
24th, as planned, it was actually not completed
till August. As a result ot having our Main
Street blocked through practically all of the
season, while Baker Street repairs were being
made, traffic was diverted down the back alleys,
lUMiHiuiiti mine i: if Kara: i; ' ': rr."'" ' """'" wi pwt
causing a great loss of trade to business people
along Main Street. Further, when the work
was completed as far as Fenwick Avenue, il
was found that the surface was not what it
was expected to be, in that the old dust
nuisance was practically as bad as before the
new work was started.
These conditions are well known to most
of the electors, but there is yet a worse fca
ture, namely, that after only a few months use,
holes have'again appeared in Baker Street
with the likelihood of the damaged portions
spreading rapidly in area, ll has been learned
that the reason for this condition is that a
great portion of the material used for surfacing was round rocks instead of crushed rock
as was originally called for. Making repairs
of these holes which have already appeared will
be very costly and the repaired job will never bc
satisfactory. In my opinion, this wink should
have been'thrown Open for tender, with the
stipulation that Cranbrook electors be employ
ed wherever possible, instead of experimenting,
as was done during the year, al greal expense
lo the City.
Another question is. "Why was the rock
crusher set up in the old gravel pit where
sufficient material could not be secured and
later moved lo another location ai additional
expense?" This miscalculation, like thc Baker
Street work, used up considerable money un
necessarily. Further, alter setting lhe rock
crusher and transformer up ill the sen,nd lo
cation, il was found that before blasting opci
alions could proceed, il was neccssar) t" move
ihe transformer back and protect thc crusher.
The delay caused by these moves could have
been avoided under proper supervision oi the
Cily administrators.
Slimming Up, lhe results from money ex
pended on Baker Street compare ver) favorably
with those obtained from the expenditure "n
the Cold Creek diversion, which dues not seem
to have improved any under the present administration which has been in office during the
past two years.
If the electors of the City are satisfied witli
these conditions, then it will be good business
to vote for a continuance of the present administration. If, on the other baud, you are
not satisfied aild wish greater economy and
a more business-like administration, then I ask
you to give me your support on Thursday,
January 13th.
Your respectfully,
W. F.CAMERON.
