OCTOBER 8th and 9th.
The funeral of the late Mrs. VV. S.
Santo took place from St. Mary'a
Chureh on Friday, at II) a.m., when a
representative gathering of friends
throughout the district was present tu
pay their last respects to one whom in
her life had won their esteem, also as
n mark of sympathy for their fellow
townsman in his hour of bereavement. Following the full Requiem
Mnss which was effectively rendered,
Kev. Father Kbinan gave a short address to thc assembled congregation,
in which he made appreciative ami
touching reference to the late Mrs.
Santo, while at thc same time drew
a valuable lesson from the sad occasion that brought them there.
To the speaker life would appear
a very hollow experience if death
were to the be-all and end-all, and
quoting Christ's own words, "J am
the Resurrection and the Life Everlasting," considered that death was
but the beginning of life everlasting.
We are spiritual beings with infinite
scope, our actions having infinite
With reference to/ the deceased
lady, the speaker said he felt that
she was a mother first, and endowed
with qualities and gifts from on high
she was indeed a shining light. He
could not think that these lips were
for ever to be silenced and still. He
spoke in the highest terms of the
place which she had taken in the work
of the church, a place which would
be indeed difficult to fill.
A large number of friends accompanied the remains to the cemetery,
where interment took place.
The pall bearers were Messrs. J,
W. Brault, R. J. Collins, J. A. Genest,
J. Jackson, J. H. McQuaid and A. J.

Church, and interment taking place

Diet on  Way  to Work
A second sudden death took place
in Kimberley on Wednesday morning,
when James Thoriey, well known
there, dropped dead on his way to
work. He was employed as an engineer at the compressor plant, and
was highly respected by all who knew
him. He had resided at Kimberley
for the past seven years, and was in
his sixty-seventh year. Deceased was
found by Leslie Herchmer a short
time after he had passed away, and
it being found that death was due
entirely to natural causes, no inquest was deemed necessary by the
coroner, M, J. Halpin.
The funeral will be held on Friday.

:!:!, Native Sons of Canada, journeyed td Kimberley where the first meeting of the fall season was held. A
lurge number of candidates from Kimherley were up for initiation with thc

the Kimherley members, a most enthusiastic meeting was held. The
meeting opened with practically all
of the regular officers in the chairs
and the first order of business taken
up was the initiation of seventeen
applicants for membership in the
lodge. These were put through with
credit to the degree team.
Following the initiation, several
matters of business were gone into,
the principal one being the reception
of thc reports of the members of thej
delegation to the Grand Lodge. The,
first report hy Mr. L. P, Sullivan indicated that the session was apparently an arduous one, and thnt much
business of importance and of interest to the Assembly had been
taken up. F ,S. Ryckman, secretary,
also ji delegate, reported in a similar
manner, dealing with facts not touched upon by the previous speaker.
The reports of the delegates were

Annual Convention of East
Kootenay Institutes
Takes Place
On October 13th and 14th Cranbrook will again be favored with the
East Kootenay Farmers' Institute
Convention. This in the fourth eon-
OCUtive year that this conference has
lecn held in the city of Cranbrook.
md the interest iu this convention
has been gradually increasing, due to
the fact that very satisfactory results
hove been obtained through the efforts of the delegates from the various institutes. During the past few
years delegates have been present
from practically every institute in
the district of East Kootenay, and a
full delegation is expected this year.
Although this is a convention of
the Farmers' Institutes held principally to discuss farmers' problems, at
thc same time many problems are
brought in that ure of interest to
everyone, nnd all nre invited to
attend and take part iu the discussion on any resolution, but only delegates will have voting power.
Tho following is thc program of
the convention:
October 13th—2 p.m., City Hall,
roll call of delegates, welcome from
Mnyor, nnnunl address of president
and discussion of secretary's report
ami adoption; 7 p.m., annual dinner
iu K.P. Hall, addresses from visiting
luncheon was served for which due
credit was given Brother Green.
A program of instrumental and
vocal music and addresses was then
carried through and much enjoyed.
The first number was a humorous
vocal BOlo by I.. P. Sullivan, featuring Pick Burke leading the lions
around. Selections hy the orchestra,
Whitman aud liild, were much appreciated. This was followed by an
address by the chairman, Dr. Rutledge, Mr. .1. McGuire, with what
he termed a home brew song, entitled "Canadian Sons" brought down
the house. Mr. Brault, the next
speaker, gave a most interesting address of welcome to thc members.
Bhowing how tho live organization
such as the Native Sons aimed to l>e,
would lie the means of making Canada the better Canada to live in.    He
claimed that Canada had not yet attained full nationhood, the work
which bad been started by Sir John
A. hail not as yet been completed.
Success would only be obtained
through a bond of union. Such a
union could be furthered through the
organisation to which they had now
joined. He felt that the Native
Sons was tho most important of all
societies to which one had the privi-
ledge of belonging to. If it failed
all failed.
Mr. K. S. Shannon then favored
with a vocal solo entitled, "Out of
the Dusk," bringing forth much ap.
of   parliament
delegates,    member
and other visitors.
October 14th— (-ity Hall, [1.30 a.m.,
Further consideration of resolutions,
election  of officers,  election  of  Advisory Board member, place of con-  spray;   Mr.  and   Mrs.   L,
vention for 11)27,
days, the immediate cause of death
being bronchial asthma. It was not
realized at first that the ailment
which had settled on him was likely
to have serious results. On Friday
he wns removed to the hospital, but
in spite of everything that could bo
done, thc little sufferer passed away
shortly after his admission  there.
The funeral took place on Sunday
afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. F. V. Harrison, of
the Anglican Church. Little Gordon
was one of a large family circle, in
addition to the sorrowing parents
there being six sisters and two brothel's, who will miss the familiar face
of their little brother, who was the
second   youngest  in  the  family.
There were many flowers in evidence at the funeral, those sending
tokens of love and sympathy being

at the Foster & Foster undertaking
parlors. Mr. .1. F. Mitchell, of Calgary, a cousin of the deceased, who
came to this city on receipt of word
of his sudden death, accompanied
Mrs.   Collins   to   Calgary.
Friends of the late Mr. Collins find
it difficult to realize the gap so rudely I
lorn in the circle of their acquaintance.     His   passing   was   so   sudden
tnat it still seems hard to believe it J
is so.    Although only residing here]
for the past three years or so, it  Is ;
|a tribute t.i his sterling qualities that
j the late Mr. Collins had made so!
many friends. All who came in em,- [
tact with him realized at once from '
his very frankness that his character
went all the way through, and was I
'not ,a superficial veneer. To those j
who wen* privileged to know him
bettei there was also displayed a Cine
adherence to worthy principles which
could not be shaken''even though to
maintain them meant sacrifice. Any-!
thing he put his hand to received hi.'j
be\l—he  never shirked responsible
I ties once assumed.
Such characters are met witli ..11
too seldom, and to meet them is ai*
way-; a privilege.    They leave behind
them an Indelible Impression on then
friends which must ever remain fresh.

There nre some merchants in Cranbrook who believe
more in show window advertising than in local newspaper
advertising. It unquestionably has great value, but that it
cannot be regarded as an end in itself can be seen from Ihe
following experience which ectuatly happened in Cranbrook
A merchant on linker Street who rightly prides himself
on bis window displays placed on sale some articles of appeal to
women, at a fraction of their value, to clear them out in order

He had done the hest he could at the

way; incidentally, to show that one
harbored no petty jealousy or ill will,
where a man of lesser caliber might
well feel he hud some right,
Arrived hy wisy graduations at
the front door, hi* was informed by
Uncle Ike, who happened that morning to he relieving the usual incumbent, the the Governor was not at
home. A fact of which he was already aware.
"It is Mrs. Cochran I wish to see,'
he explained in his leisurely drawl
From the desk, his eye traveled to
the windows at the hack—the gar
den beyond. A figure in blue linen
and wide hat was on her knees before
a rust* hush, examining intently the
under side of the leaves. On the
ground beside Iier ||jy a small garden
spray and other implement!
He took a step forward as she
appeared in the doorway. Her face,
flushed from the sun, was half hidden
hy the floppy big hat. The heavy
gloves which she was in the act of
drawing off were covered with earth.
Molly, who had not caught the
mumbled announcement and was still
a little blinded from the sun, started
as Renfro advanced to meet her.
This mom was the one spot in the
house where nobody, not even her
husband, intruded without invitation,
The mistake, however, wns plainly
Uncle Ike's. "Oh, good morning!
she said. "Mr. Cochran's not at

"It was you I wished to see," Renfro informed her. "I only wanted
to remind you that we were once
very gootl friends, before 1 ask you

a little ubsurd. I'll hnve to ask you

Molly wns regarding him with un
disguisetl amazement, "My hus
bund would think me quite dement'
ed," she snid, "hut— of course this
is only another of your famous jokes.
It's beon so long—I'd almost forgotten that one must never under any
circumstances   take   you   seriously!"
Even Renfro's equilibrium wavered a little, but he recovered quickly.
He had only to remind himself that
he was trying to do a handsome and
u generous thing. Of course, if the
party of the second part would not
be advised . . "Strike two!" he mur
mured. "Do you remember the
first? Anyway," he added, "I'm
perfectly serious now. 1 want you
to use your influence . . .
Molly laughed. "I have none. My
husband manages his own affairs."
He nodded. "Precisely—and you
manage him." He favored her with
his most ingenuous smile. "I know.
I'm a husband myself!"
She shook her head. "If I had
any such influence, this is the last
ense in which I would wish to use it.'
"You mean on my account—personally."
"Not at nil."
"Beenuse of my politicnl affiliations, then?"
She made a slight affirmative sign
and looked again at'her watch,
He shifted a little in his chair to
face her more directly, assumed his
most " telling argumentive pose.
"There are more ways than one of
looking at that," he said. "You probably don't realize that Cochran's attitude toward business—big business
—is turning millions of dollars away
from this stnte every year—hindering development, crippling industry,
impoverishing the people .
I hadn't noticed that things
were in such n bad way," she suggested mildly.
Renfro stood up. "Practicnl's the
watchword nowadays all right. Visionaries and enthusiasts are distinctly in the discard. Of course—I
don't include Cochran in that list.
He proffered that with u largo tolerance. "He's practical enough
knows what he's after, too, I'll wager
—though nobody else seems to I"
Molly rose also, "Some things are
so simple thut they escape notice,"
she submitted.
He shook his head, "Nothing
simple about Cochrnn." Still thc
beneficient .tolerance. "Deep—too
all-fired deep, most of us think!
Anyhow, I'll be glad enough to hnve
him ou my Hide in this coming election.     You   ,•>(•*•,    I'm   conn tint

She   regarded   him   for  some   moments in silence.    "1 can't have given
you that impression," she said.
You mean—you refuse?"
If you put it that way."
I    feel   sure   you're   going   to
change your mind—ugain 1 must ask
you to take my word for the statement.    As a friend"—he emphasized
the word mellowly—"I beg you to do
s0 now."
It wouldn't he any use if I did.
You must know how absurd the whole
proposition is."
Renfro's mouth took on its most
confidential and engaging quirk.

The nlumni danoe is not strictly
a university function, though it
marks the close of the college yenr
and is attended by a terrific crush
of students, alumni und otherwise.
It purposes hnve heen uhsorhed to a
considerable extent by the town, and
what it really amounts to is a sort nf
whirlwind finish to the social season
at large. When it is over ut six
n.m. students may been seen-hurrying away to cntch early trains, Everybody else goes home, closes green
blinds on white colonial houses, nnd
departs for Sultilln tn* Michigan or
Colorado Springs.
The dance tukes place at the city's
one sizable hostelry, a failed relic of
ono-timo grandeur — anathema of
commercial travellers from Chicago
to the Rio Grande. Its ballroom,
however, is ample. Palms, fenis,
unlimited quantities of flowers, conceal the fadedness, while the southern
moon converts numerous small balconies into retreats worthy of the
most exacting Juliets.

Another delightful dance and
cial took place in the old post office,
on Thursday evening. We were much
pleased to see so muny visitors from
our neighbor towns.   Mr. .lames' one-
man band dispensed the music, and
the dancers surely did swing into gait.
The   Spanish   waltz   was   charming,
and  the ever-popular  military  two-
step; likely the military two-step was
in honor of veterans  present.    Mr.
George   Kllis was in charge of the
ribbons at the door for the gentlemen.   Special thanks are due Messrs.
Bartholomew and George Kllis, Mr.
and   Mrs.  John   Horman,   Mesdames
Kllis,   Crane,  Stunrt  antl   Herchmer,

kindly contributed the refreshments,

according to the Dominion Dairy
News Letter, Canada's export of butter decreased close upon two and a
half million pounds compared with
the previous year's returns, but a
cent and n half per pound increase
in price to some extent counterbalanced the deficit. On the other hand

TIIL'KSDAV, OCTOm-.R 7th, V>2(i
STUDENTS ol national-artairs, "f all shades ol
political thought, feel that one of the most
regrettable results ol thc recent elections is the de
cision arrived at by Hon. Arthur Meighen tu retire
[rom federal politics, lie lias undoubtedly been the
must outstanding and agressivc figure in Canadian
politics since the retirement of Sir Robert Borden
tin him devolved the difficult task of bringing
the country back to normal following the close of
thc war. and bis services during thc union ministry
days of the world conflict, and the reconstruction
days which followed were rewarded with a dismissal
from power as the pendulum swung back lo straight
party line*-.
Prom the first days of Mr. Meighen in parliament criticism against him was roused by bis
tearless utterances, which in office were translated into action. This brought more criticism, but
il i> to his credit that he was al least not
afraid to lay out a line of action, even if he found
it was not to tbe popular fancy. To that extent at
least he was a constructive statesman .and can
thus enjoy tbe satisfaction of knowing tbat he was
criticised because be did accomplish something, rath
ri than heing accused of inaction.
For two brief snatches of time be held the rein
of power tis the bead of the government, but on
neither occasion was he securely scaled in tbe saddle. To his credit it can be said that bc did'not use
lbe power of government entrusted lo him for petty
purposes. Indeed, this is one of tbe differences he
ha- had with others in his party. Under thc cir
cumstanccg his decision to retire from politics is no
surprising, aud il can truly be said that it is just a!
much the lukewarmness or thinly veiled opposition
of bis supposed supporters which is responsible for
his disappearance from public life, as the criticism
of his political opponents, Ile stands as another
public man crucified by those wbo ought to have
been his friends, and that lhc benefit of bis vast experience in Canadian public life will now be lost to
parliament entirely is something giving rise to gen
nine regret. The hope is expressed that it will be
but temporary.
If bis successor in lhc leadership of the Conservative party is able Iti combine with the same ability
a little more urbanity and blandncss tbat can succeed
in wearing down the pettiness and narrowness that
sometimes arises in parly councils, the future of tbe
Conservatives will be assured; but the party will
suffer if there is shown any inelination to descend
from the high levels of Mr. Meighen's principles,
which he even maintained at the price of bis own
personal popularity.
CRANBROOK, il would seem, should count the
election atmosphere as part of Ibe climate hereabouts. The stone-, which revolve about elections
held in this vicinity are legion, and though they may
lo-e tlieir tenseness as the years go hy, arc still
full of interest. Tbe times may indeed be counted
dull in Cranbrook district when then- is no election
uf one kind or another pending.
Just now there is thc by-election question, raised by thc reappointment of Dr. King to thc Dominion cabinet, to lie settled, though it must bc said
that from present appearances it does not look as
if there will be a very hectic atmosphere raised
by that incident. If this is not enough there will
be shortly following it the plebiscite on whether
Crnnbrook is to have beer by tbe glass, or beer only
in bottle from thc liquor store. This is a question
in which thc city will split differently from all political alignments, and may bring to memory, if it
is taken seriously enough, some of thc warm episode- uf past years when the liquor question was
voted un here. Then will come the civic elections,
rumblings of which are already being heard, and
which if they increase iu intensity, will certainly
lead lo a lively campaign.
In between elections Ihere are certain ulber
occasions which the people of Cranbrook will have
■to give some attention to, such as Thanksgiving ami
Chrislma-tidc, so taken by and large—especially thc
TI 11-'. law of the land requires that when a member
of parliament is given a position iu the cabinet
under which be receives a specific salary, bc shall
go back lu bis constituency for re-election. Whcth-
this is wise or not, inasmuch as bcing elected to
parliament itself entails the acceptance uf a salary
from the country, is open to question, but argument
dung these lines cannot affect the facts as they are
in lhe statute books. Moreover legislation is sometimes found to be a most inelastic quantity, aud of
no particular branch uf legislation is this found to
be more so than the statutes under which the elections tire conducted. Officials are given nu latitude
which lu exercise discretion—certain things have
he dune, and in a certain way. Consequently,
whether there is any opposition to Dr. King at tbe
by-election or not, all the pre-election formalities
have io lu- gone through, such as the appointment
f a returning officer and other officials, the preparation of much printed matter in due legal form, preparation of the printed voters' lists, and so on, and
since il is not knuwn officially lill within a week uf
thc pulling day, whenever nomination day is held,
whether there is guing to he any election or not, the
inly saving effected in au acclamation is that there
ire no ballots prepared, aud a few other economies
are effected that would naturally follow.
This is not reviled for thc purpose of urging
that there should necessarily he an election, but to
make it clear there is nut much economy to the
country whether there is ur nol. There is a more
decided saving in local effort perhaps, and there is
something to be said in favor of giving a new minister to understand that he can go ahead and give his
full energies tu his duties forthwith, but unfortun
ately the law does not provide for such a course.
Where a minister has a comfortable majority
if course, opposition is futile, but in some cases, it
can easily be seen that political expediency could bc
resorted tu tu bolster up a weak cause, if it were a
hard antl fast regulation thai a minister need nut go
back fnr re-election.
I-" it is true that the Liberal government is quietly
reinstating some nf the officials who were sus
pentlcd from the Customs service as a result of the
recent investigation, Premier King is following a
very ill-advised course. Thc committee by whose
recommendations thc suspensions were made was
predominatingly Liberal, and it would have given
rise to mure confidence in the new administration
if they had allowed the investigation now being continued under judicial auspices tu run its course. It
Innks as if thc reinstatements being carried out were
tbe price for silence on someone's part, and the go
vernment will get away to a bad start if it adopts
such a course. How it can discriminate and rein
state some and not others is hard to see. Any re
iustatetnents, in fact, seem like a direct repudiation
of its owu committee.
The Liberals promised a thorough investigation
of thc Customs department, and thc country would
think better of them had there been a public ;
uouncetnent made uf their course to take back into
the service officials it was not long ago decided could
uot continue in office, lt is certainly no way to
regain the confidence of thc people in the integrity
of tbe public services whicb has been sadly shattered
as ti result of the recent revelations.
HENRY FORD has published his latest balance
balance sheet, as of December 31, 1925. lt
decidedly strengthens the claim that he is thc richest
man iu the world. The assets of the Ford Motor
Company arc now put at $742,914,000, liabilities arc
relatively negligible, and tbe surplus is no less than
$622,367,000—lhe greatest corporate surplus ever
accumulated since capitalism came into being. Thc
surplus uf the United States Steel Corporation is
$521,863,000—a full $100,000,000 less. There are
172,645 shares of the Ford Motor Company out
standing, till held within the family. The latest
Wall Street estimate is a value of $6,000 per share.
Multiplying $6,000 by 172,645, we get the staggering
total of $1,035,870,000 as the family equity in the
company. This figure is a third greater than the
total reported assets, but based on earning power it
is by no means too great. Mr. Ford gives us no
profit-and-loss account, but it is possible to estimate
bis profits from thc balance sheets at the beginning
and tbe end of the year. Thc estimate for l')25
would be:
Increase in corporate surplus   $79,801,000
Dividends  11924 basis)      14,670,000
Good-will written off during year ...   20,517,000
Total estimated profit, 1925 ... $115,078,000
This is the equivalent of $667 per share of stock
outstanding, and thus on an ultra-conservative 10
per cent basis Wall Street's estimate of $6,000 per
share would see lo be justified. Meanwhile the
profit uf $115,000,000 is the equivalent of $55 each
for thc 2,103,578 cars and trucks built during thc
year. Thc $28,000 with which Ford started in 1903
has snowballed to a cool billion,
ITHOLT doubt une of the greatest factors in
community is thc hearty co-operation uf all interest-
d. The united, unselfish effurt of a family will
build and furnish a home even under very adverse
circumstances. The same sort of effort will build
a great business iu which everyone from the manager tu lhc office hoy benefits materially. Co-operation coupled with unselfish service will transform
a hamlet into a town and a town into a city, and
latter, as elections usually are in this cily—it looks all ils inhabitants will benefit during the triuisfunna-
like a busy fall fur Crauhrook. tion.

lnvermere, B.C., Oct. 2nd.—The
current press despatches announce
death of Duncan Anderson, one of
Orilliu's best-known and most highly
respected citizens. Mr. Anderson
wns originally a fanner in Oro township in Ontario, but later joined the
federal department oE agriculture in
u special capacity. I" 1912 he was
sent to lnvermere in charge of the
open-up and development of the newly established experimental station
of the Dominion iu this place.
Lnst month there passed away at
the home of her son at Winnipeg one
of the few who were left who were
directly connected with the early
pioneers of the great West of the
last century. This wns Mrs. Cowan
of Winnipeg, widow of the lato Doc
tor Cownn, who was in practice there
when the community was known as
the Red River Settlement. The late
Mrs. Cowan's names before her marriage wore Harriette Goldsmith Sinclair, and her father was James Sinclair of the Red River Settlement,
James Sinclair was a man of great
enterprise nnd of un active spirit,
After a liberal education in Old
Country colleges he joined the services of the Hudson's Bay Company
and rose high in their service, but
the restraints which were at thnt
time imposed upon their servants by
the Hudson's Bay Company chafed
him so he resigned and threw in his
interests with a powerful community
amongst the settlers who had grievances against tbe existing rule of
the Hudson's Buy Company. In his
new relationships he became a mark
ed leader and in that capacity at
different times headed bodies of
settlers who determined to leave the
Red River Settlement and take up
their homes in Oregon. In this work
he co-operated with sume of the higher officials of the Hudson's Bay ("ompany and for a time was in charge of
thoir post nt Walla Walla, Wash. The
route of his travels was generally
through the valley of the Kootenny
River, but at least once he journeyed
through the truil which is now de
fined us tho Banff-Windermere highway. In remembrance of that the
pass through which it debouches into
the Columbia River valley wns called
the Sinclair Pass, the namo being
given it by one of his sons, the late
Colin Sincliar, who Inter became a
resident on Tobacco Plains, to the
south of Elko.

French Canadian priestH and Jesuit missionaries from France soon
stnblished themselves everywhere
under the protection of the company,
nnd with their usual zeal, quickly
built up for their Church a considerable following amongst the families
of a mixed origin. People conversant with the wnys of priestcraft in
other countries will easily understand
tbe influence they obtained amongst

Although the Hudson Bay Compuny officers wero the rulers de jure,
the priests were so de facto.

At    first   sight   it   muy   appear
strange that this could take pluce in
settlenftmt where the  Protestants
and Romanists were about equul in
numbers; but when it is remembered
tbat the former consisted of several
nationalities, and of still more numerous sects without any one recognized ruler, and with many different
interests,   it can  readily be  understood  how the smaller half, acting
and voting as a unit maintained an

As for the Roman Catholic priesthood, they were desirous of gradually building up there another French
province, where the language, religion and lows of Lower Canada might
bc perpetuated, und which in time to
come might, in conjunction with it,
be some counterpoise lo the steadily
increasing, and by then much dreaded,   preponderance of Ontario.
In fine, both company and
priesthood were determined to oppose
an emigration which would be destructive to the truding monoply of
the one and to the unquestioned-authority of the other. Both combined

so minded and exacted their due,
tho city would have been at considerable expense. He was pleased to
state that after an interview with
the Sister Superior they were able to
come to u very generous arrangement which was very advantageous to
this city, much credit being due the
Sister Superior for her attitude in
the matter. With regard to the value of the hospital as a commercial
asset, to say nothing of its inestimable value as a harbor of relief from
suffering, he assured them that the
hospital, while a most important factor in saving life, also benefitted the
city every day through the number
of people from outside points who
came in as patients or to visit, friends.
Commends Ihe Doctors
With regard to the doctors in attendance at the hospital, and what
the people thought of this, he felt
it unnecessary for him to refer to
Dr. Green ns the people would well
remember the anxiety there wns at
the time of his recent illness, and
how the news thut he was out of
danger was so welcomely received.
With regard to Dr. MacKinnon, he
felt this a more difficult matter to refer to, but he very aptly summed up
thnt the mask of severity and sternness which the doctor wore was not
purposely to choke people nwny from
him, hut to hide a tenderness of
heart. He referred to the occasion
of the sickness of Dr. Green when
he felt that this mask was drawn
aside and the doctor partner was
seen in his true light. "If there was
ever one who possessed n true and
tender heart, Dr. MacKinnon wns
that mnn."
He congratulated the young ladies
on thc attaining of the high degrees
which they had ust received nnd bis
one best wish was thnt they would
soom get married.

Dr. Green, who was particularly
happy in his short address, was heard
with much interest. He spoke in
pleasing terms of the relation between
the doctors nnd nurses, giving an interesting characterization of them
from the time they enter ns nwkwnrd
beginners, always in the wny, to the
graduation time when they were ■••'•-ill
fledged nurses, tried and proven in
the work which they had undertaken
for life as their chosen profession.
With the insight that they had got
into medical science and practice,
he admonished them not to let their
interest wnne. He referred to their
duty with respect to the order of
the attending doctors, holding that
his success or failure depended largely upon them. The importance of
being attentive to details upon all
occasions, but not fussy, and of acquiring the sympathetic spirit nnd
of the value of a bridled tongue were
pointed out, the doctor closing Im
remarks with a quotation from Con-

The case which had been under investigation for some weeks, came up
at Fernie last week and the magistrate imposed the above penalty for
having "a wash suitable for the manufacture of spirits without havino* "•*•■
eu notice as required by the Dominion Excise Act.
The case arose when Constable
Cameron of Fernie mnde n search
of the accused's premises, where in
the cellar was found one barrel containing some 50 gallons raisin wash
or mash and another receptacle containing 20 to 26 gallons of liquid
wnsh. Samples of these were submitted to Ottawa for analysis with
the result that one showed 20.35 per
cent proof spirit and the other 20.SC>
per cent. Dragon claimed he was
preparing the mixture for use with
wild Saskatoon berries gathered by
him to make a drink for family use
and the fact that the mixture fermented was not Intentional.
The magistrate took the view that
under the Kxcise act nevertheless .the

will meet in Vancouver between October 16 and 20.
The date fur the holding of the
convention will then be set, and it
will be held before the Dominion Parliament is convened. Only sufficient
time will elapse, it is said, to permit
of-tbe different associations throughout British Columbia electing their
delegates to attend the gathering.
While several places have been suggested as possible convention cities.

If the leader decided upon does not
already hold a sent in the Legislature,
it is unlikely that he will bo able to
attend as a member at the form;
opening of the House in December,
but may be present when the .January
session  starts.
A seat would have to be opened by
tho resignation of a sitting member.
Then it would be up to the government to set the date for the election,
and Ibis might be delayed indefinite-
ly, if, for instance, the resignation
should take place from Victoria,
where there are four Conservative
seats. In the last Legislature the
resignation of a sitting member for
Vancouver was not followed by a
by-election to fill the vacancy.
Political prophets foresee a move
on the part of the Liberals to drive
a bargain in the event of an early
election for a Conservative lender be
ing desired. It is no less thnn a saw
otf by which the Liberals would expedite the holding of a contest wherever necessary for the election of the
new lender, and not oppose his re
turn, provided Conservatives would
not contest the return of a Vancou
ver member as a cabinet minister,
thus permitting Premier Oliver to
carry out the suggestion made at the
last session when the question wns
raised, thnt Vnncouver would be given cabinet representation.
In nny event, according to Mr. R.

Tlie whole energies of the United
Church in the province of British
Columbia will be centerd during the
month of October on the campaign to
raise funds to erect the new Union
College on the campus of the pro
vlneial university. Following adopt
ion of the general scheme by the. annual conference all the Presbyteries
have accepted the month of October
for the college campaign ami as far
as possible Sunday October ITth
will be observed throughout the province as College Pay. Nearly 250
ministers in the TOO preaching place*
of the United Church will present
the educational interests of the
ochurch and Union College mi that
Advantage  of  Union
Union College is a splendid evidence of the economy effected by
church ■ union. Fifteen years ago
plans were laid to build three colleges representing the three denominations that went into the United
Church and sites on thc University
ground were allocated to the several
bodies. Now one college will be established whore formerly three were
contemplated. The General Council gave approval to the plan submitted by Hritish Columbia for the amalgamation of Westminster Hall, Ryer-
son College ami the incorporated Congregational College of British Columbia, and a new act of incorporation
will he sought for Union College at
the next session of the legislature.
Likewise throughout Canada a total
f fifteen colleges conducted by the
three denominations will by amalgamations be reduced to five.    *
The site for the new college is
now being cleared and it is hoped to
all for tenders in a few weeks'
time. The estimated cost is $100,-
000, of which $50,000 is now on hnnd.
The balance will be raised by appeal
n October.
An interesting feature of the campaign is the honor roll containing a
list of all adults subscribing $1.00
or more to the college and of all Sun-
lay school scholars who contribute
25c orniore. It is hoped in this way
to make a complete honor roll of all
charter members nnd adherents of
the United Church in the province
of British Columbia. Thin will be

Victoria, Sept. 24th—British Columbia's lumber industry cannot afford to pay a minimum wage of 40
cents an hour as proposed by the
Imnrd administering the province's
minimum wage law the provincial
government was told today by n large
delegation of lumbermen.
At a provincial meeting with the
cabinet, the lumbermen voiced vigorous objections to the hoard's ruling in favor of a 40-cent scale to go
into elTect November 1. This plan,
it wan stated would seriously affect
tbt operations of  many  mills and
cause them to lengthen thoir usu
mid-winter shut-down io a long
period. Employees thus wulud suffer instead of gaining by the ruling,
it was asserted.
Some of the lumber proposed that
a 36-cent scale prevail for the winter months and the higher rate go
into effect in the spring.
Following a directors' meeting of
the Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Co. Ltd., at Montreal, il wns unnoticed last week that, the board approved of an addition (,f CO,(toil horsepower to the plant of the Wesl Kootenay Power & Llghl Co. Ltd., at
fymnington Falls, near Nelson, B.C.
The West Kootenay Power & Light
Company is a subsidiary of Lho Consolidated Minging & Smelting Company which, with headquarters at
Trail, employs more than 2400 workers.
An extension of the plant to provide additional power to the smelter
at Trail and which cost $5,000,000,
was completed during the past su
The new extension as announced
in the above despatch likely menu
another outlay of $5,000,000 and
most likely an addition to the Trail
smelter and n consequent increase in
the number of workmen employed.
A matter of vital importance to
Golden from a tourist point of view
is motor road connection to Revelstoke and the coast.
Following the decision of a recent
meeting of the Golden board of
trade, a letter was forwarded to the
Department of Public Works at Victoria asking for a survey this fall of
the proposed motor road to connect
with Revelstoke.
During the visit of Hon. Dr. King
to Golden, it was impressed on him
the advisability of connecting the
Yoho and Glacier parks by motor
highway and he spoke strongly in
favor of this suggestion.
When the link is constructed Golden will then take its place on the
main Trans-Canada motor highway.
An order appearing in last week's
B.C. Gazette imposes a -ID-cent per
hour minimum wage in every branch
of the lumber industry In British
Columbia, Including logging camps,
sawmills, shingle, planing and lath
mills, sash, dour, box and barrel factories, veneer plants, pulp and paper
The order must come into effect
on November I, despite protests of
lumbermen that it will force mills
to close during winter. Discussing
petitions presented by lumbermen
who suggested .!"> cents as a compromise, Premier Oliver said:
The cabinet has not considered
the protests, but I can see no provision allowing the provincial executive to interfere.    The net Hi form-

^illations in protecting the interests
of producers who sell their eggs on
public markets is shown in an experi.
once related recently by a Montreal
egg dealer, The dealer in question
made regular weekly sales of "storage seconds" to a man who was do-
inn: business as a farmer on a Montreal market. In ono instance defy was made directly to the purchaser's stall on the market. In adjoining stalls were bona fide pro-
selling the produce of their
own farm. Without the grading regulations, which require all containers to be marked with the class and
egs, this man would have
been selling his storage seconds in
direct competition with the fresh ex-
Iras of the farmers and possibly at
the same price. To protect the interests of producers in such instances
is one of the objects of the egg regulations.

The second greatest half-year in
the history of the Canadian Pacific
Railway has been completed with
the month of July, the official financial statement for this period showing an increase in the gross earnings over the preceding six months
of 110,071,908,66. The increase in
the net profits for the same period
amounted to $6,169,041, or an increase nearly double that of 'the
previous half year in 1925
Following a slight recession in
April the production of automobiles
in Canuda continued its upward
trend in May to reach a new high
level of 24.i>:t4 units, valued at $15,-
761,616. This output compares with
21,502 units, worth $13,754,390 in
the previous month. For the five
months ending May the cumulative
production was 103,127 units, valued
at $62,085,152, as against 78,227
units valued at $49,497,988 in the
corresponding period last year.
Canada leads the nations of the
world* in the proportion of years of
prosperity to years of depression,
says a report now in preparation by
the National Bureau of Economic
Research, Ltd., an American organization. Covering the period 1884-
1924, Canada shows 1.86 yeara of
prosperity per year of depression.
The United States comes next on
the list wiih 1.79 years o\ prosperity
per year of depression, covering the
period  1890-11123.
Definite indications of the largest
building year Canada has had in
more than a decade are now ihown
by the record of the first six months
•f this year. The very large and unusual total of $194,543,600 worth of
new. construction for tbe first half
of tho current year and contemplated
new work to the value of $304,598,-
600 forecasts great activity for tho
remaining months. During June
contracts awarded totalled $64,186,-
400. un increase over June, 1925, of
63 per cent.
One of the greatest foundations
upon which the Canadian national
spirit rests was laid by Uw Canadian
Pacific Railway was the conviction
uttered by J. 1). Cameron, of Glasgow, in an address before an audience al Pembroke recently. "Not
merely did this railroad act," he
said, "us u bond between all the
provinces of the Confederation, but
it was, by its conception and final
construction, a greater force than
anything else for the unification of
tbe scattered provinces."*

It was with no small degree of
pride that the friends of E. L. Hannah, son of Mr. nnd Mrs. I. Hannah,
received word of the success of this
former Crnnbrook boy in the land
to the south of us, as might be learned from the article from an Oakland
paper which is printed below. While
it is still true that there is always
room at the top, still the competition
is so keen and the chances of slipping are so great that much credit
and praise is due those who through
strict attention to business reach the
top of the pile. Such is the experience of young Hannah. Starting
here in 1914 as a messenger boy at
the local telegraph office, he was making good when the war broke out,
and he took up service with the United States murines. Here his knowledge stood him in good stead.
The advancement as indicated below shows that the boy was mnde of
good stuff and. thnt his new position
will be but a stepping stone to some
thing better.
