Council Takes Frellmlnery Steps to Incorporate New Townslte
Addition—Will Hold Tax Sale This Summer.
Many matters of importance: were
taken up by the Council at their meeting on WedneHday. Tlio Auditor's Report watt received and referred to the
Finance Committee, BtepH wcre taken
to extend the llmitH of the municipality
and lt wn;s decided to hold a tax mile
tlilH mini mer. Many minor mutters
were aluo attended to.
Tlte Mayor occupied tlu* chair with
Aldermen Hanto, KrickHon, liniment,
U'UHk and Hunwm present, Mlnutee
of previous*. meetliiKK were read and
Father Mcdulre waB present and nd-
dri'HHi'd tlie council in regard to the
Rectory. The rate charged \* $g,2&
per quarter, which Father McUulrc
thought was too high when the most
of the tlmo there were only two person* living ln the Rectory, the Pariah
Priest and the housekeeper, and believed this waB partly responsible for
the Rectory having been closed up
some time ago. He asked that the
council grant a rebate.    ,
Alderman Balment was afraid that
If a rebate were granted ln this cane
It would create a bad precedent and
lead to scores of requests of the Bame
nature to tbe council. On motion of
Alderman Leask and Santo the matter
was referred to the Water Committee.
The estimates of the School Board
for the present year were presented to
the Council and referred to the Finance Committee. The net estimated
amount required from the city this
year by the School Board ls $3,441.38
less than last year's estimate.
The auditor's report was received
and referred to the Finance Committee. One Item referred to ln the auditor's report was a sum of $40 missing
from the returns made by the Chief
of Police. The chief explained that
this had been stolen from his desk,
$10.25; Cranbrook Electric Light Co.
(thawing act.) $4:1.03; Campbell &
Manning $75.00.
Tlie city clerk reported that the
Imperial Hank instated upon the city
having a tax sale. Alderman Santo
was in favor of u tax sale as otherwise It wbb not giving those who did
pay tlieir tnXflfl a fair siiuw. He believed there were people who were
able to pay who wimUl not pay until
a tax sale were drought on. Half the
people were paying and currying the
burden for those who did not pay, and
he thought It was quite within the
range of possibility that unless we
luul a tux sale those wno so far had
been paying might also refuse to pay
Mayor Clapp maintained that as we
only charge eight per cent interest
some people take thf stand tbat lt Is
easier to let tlieir taxes get behind
because they can't borrow money at
that rate.
Alderman Hanson: 'if the Bank insists upon a tax sale there is nothing
else for us to do."
Moved by Alderman Balment, seconded by Alderman Santo, that the
collector be Instructed to enforce the
collection of alt delinquent taxes by
sale of land on the 21st day of August, according to the clause of the
Municipal Aet.—Carrled.
The city engineer's report was read
to the council, A new valuation has
been made of the city waterworks system by taking the total expenditure under the Waterworks Debenture Act on the new system, and
adding to this the various elements of
value tbat remained from the previous
system, such as dam and reservoir, old
wood pipe branches and extensions

Attempt to Burn Business Section of
t'ranbrook Last Week.
Cranbrook narrowly escaped a disastrous flre Friday night last, clearly
the work of an Incendiary. A bottle
full of gasoline with a lighted candle
in its neck was discovered In a
vacant room over J. D. McBrldc's
hardware store, tlie name sheltered
with a stick of slab-wood, and with
a pillow bo fixed that thc blaze from
the gasoline would at once start It
on flre.
The dlBcovery waa made by Mayor
Clapp. Mr. W. F. Attridge and several others while on a tour of exploration among some vacant rooms
after attending the meeting of the
Conservative Association in Clapp's
Hall. The candle was pretty well
burned down when found, nnd it
was only the most fortunate accident
that the work of the fire-flend was
stumbled onto. This building ls in

AnIih Authority to Mobilize 107th Iteirlment for

A meeting of delegates from   the ' quests hnd been mane to the proper
various municipalities of thc three rid- ; authorities for this provilege, but no
logs of Fernie, Craubrook and Columbia was held In Femle last Saturday
night on the call of Acting Mayor Qraham of Fernie, the object being to
ask the Minister of Militia to authorise the Immediate mobilization of tlie
107th Regment for overseas service.
Representatives wen. present from
Creston, Cranbrook, Elko, Fernie, Golden* Michel, Natal. The meeting waB
a,most representative one and much
enthusiasm was manifested, the entire
proceedings being of the most harmonious nature. Mr, J. M. Christie of
Cranbrook occupied the chair on motion of Mr. dates of Fcrnie. W. J.
Morrison of Fern.e was acting secretary of the meeting.
Mr. Barnes stated that to his personal knowledge, three different   rt-
I recognition of tbem had been received.

H. G. Lockhart, of Michel, fully
endorsed what Mr. Barnes had tald,
and stated that tho people of Natal
and Michel feel that they have a
grievance, because ot official neglect
of recognition of tlie district, and
further that there  were many more
recruits awaiting to Join an  overseas j total ot $2065 had been raised during

A well-attended meeting was held
in the Assembly Room of Christ
Church on February 7th, the rector
being In tho chair.
After the confirmation of minutes
nnd the usual technical business, the
rector made an informal survey of
parochial conditions and plans. He
tendered his sincere thanks to the
congregation for the affection and
sympathy extended to him In bis recent berenvement. It hnd been a great
comfort to him and hnd helped him to
realize how much solid goodness there
waB In tho community. Speaking of
('hurch work ho expressed gratification nt thc btiHlnesslllce wny In which
the wardens and sidesmen had carried out their duties and nt the splendid work of tlie ladles' Guild. During bin work in Crnnbrook there hnd
always existed In tbe Parish a spirit
of good will and unanimity and this
lie trusted would continue Ho was
anxious to extend tho activities of the
church so that every member In the
city might bo reached and drawn Into
some sphere of Interest. It was with
this object In view that the A.Y.P.A.,
Bible and Literary Study Circle, Elocution Class, Home Workers League,
had been organized, nnd the Men's
Debating Society, Library and Parish
Bulletin would shortly be Bet on foot.
After tbe rector's address the church
wardens presented their report showing a balance on hand after paying
all current expenses of $2.80.   The
very promising as fur uu obtaining
Government assistance was concerned, the department taking tlie stand
that there were no* enough cowb In
tlie district ut present to warrant
starting a creuiwry, and advising that
the matter bo dropped until there
were more dairy stock in the district
when they would lie pleased to help.
The matter was then taken up with
tlie Farmers' Institute and tlie Agricultural Association, both of which
bodies heartily co-operated. The joint
committee of the three organizations
obtained as fur us possible a census
of the cows in the district. From 55
answers received we find there are
now 103 cows In the district belonging to the farmers, and another hundred owned by the dairymen, while
the probable number which would
be purchased in the event of a creamery starting Is 16tf. Mr. H. A. Ammer-
man ,who for the past year or so
lias been with the Edmonton City
Dairy ut Stettler iu charge of their
creamery there, made a visit to Cranbrook uud investigated thu possibilities of a creamery here, and formed
the opinion that a creamery could be
commenced and made a -success here.
He made a proposition to lease aud
purchuse the uiachminery if we made
the necessary arrangements to establish a. creamery at this point. His
offer was an initial payment of $200
the tlrst year and complete the payments iu I'liur Mual payments with
Interest at 7  per cent.
Mr. Christie recommended providing sufficient funds to purchase machinery suitable to Mr. Ammerman.
Promises have now been obtained
amountfng to $500 on a $1500 outfit.
This, Including the $200 which Mr.
Ammor 111 nn will put up only leaves
a balance of $800 to be provided for,
aud he suggested appointing a strong
ommittee to go thoroughly into the
matter and solicit subscriptions from
farmers and others sufficient to raise
the balance.
At the conclusion of Mr. ChrlBtle'B
report an invitation was extended to
those present to express their views
on the matter. Mr. Pownell believed that the establishment of a creamery would help the cattle Industry
in every way. He himself was 23
miles away with very poor railway
connection but nevertheless he would
be willing to subscribe some money
to it If there were nn assurance that
the merchants and business men
would take stock or bind themselves
to buy the products of the creamery
so thnt it would be more likely   to
Creston would co-operate with Cranhrook If 11 creamery wero established
here, While tiiere might be some
little difficulty ut first In getting a
creamery under way when the farmers see the money tn It they will
rapidly increase the number of COWS.
At present the cattle, nre mostly range
cuttle and not very suitable for dairying but ho believed if a creamery were
iu operation suitable cattle would
Boon be brought Into the country.
Mr. H. H. McClure was the next
to  express  Ills   views.    He  believed
nothing made a country prosperous as
quickly as the cow, but thought there
was a reason for the luck of cows lu
the district at present.    He dIci not
think the farmers hud lieen encour-
aged to make butter, and that when '
they did make It they were unable to
soil it for cash.    Farmers, no more 1
than others, can't  live  ou  groceries
alone, and unless they are able to ,
sell their manufactured product, whether It be butter or something olse, j
for cash, It creates  a  hardship  for
them,   While there were not a great
many cows In the community at pres-!
ent, people would  take steps to get \
cows aud place thc output of cream
.villi  the Creamery.    Many co-opera-
Uve  creameries  have  not  been  sue-1
cessful because their managers, being
on a salary, have not taken a keen (
personal Interest In the business.   A 1
man getting his livelihood out ut   a ■
creamery  would   puBh   the  business. 1
With the'small amount 01:■ capital required there should be no difficulty lu
getting the Creamery established.
Mr. Beattie said he could <-ndor.se
all Mr. H. H. McClure had said. Tliey :
would never get cows in the district!
until the Creamery was started. He
had made urrangements to sell ten '■
Holstefn cows from liis ranch In'
Alberta to people In the district pro-
vlded the Creamery became an ac-!
complislied fact. If the Nelson district, which was im.Mly a rock pile,
could run a creamery, surely the j
district from Kootenay Landing to
the Crows' Nest should be able to do ■
so too. Creameries might meet with
many and considerable difficulties at
the start, but the seed was sown which
eventually led to success for farmers.
The necessary capital was only a I
small amount which should be easily
raised. Business men were just as
keenly Interested in the establishment
of the Creamery OS the farmers. Let
them make a start.
Hc moved tliat the establishing of a
Creamery be undertaken at once, and
that the Chair appoint a Committee
get out, get additional subscrib-
prove a success.   If creameries can be; er8) ond gflt aU arrangements put in
made to stick In Albert^ surely they 18ha,iet tlie Committee to present all
facts and figures to a public meeting ns shortly as possible.
•an be made to stick In B. C.
Mr. A. IC, Watts advised caution and
selves with the 107th, as lt was a local organization.
W. Kerr, a delegate from Elko, stated that any resolution that the meeting saw fit to adopt for the purpose
of urging the mobilization of the 197th
would receive the unanimous support
of the peoplo of Elko.

One of the most sensible articles
on the changed spirit of the Oerman
people since the outbreak of the war
is the following by a Danish Traveller:
1 was In Berlin when the war broke
out and have twice visited Germany
since. Each timo I see a change in
the spirit of tho people.
At flr.it tlm enthusiasm was boundless. In ail Germany one could not
have found a German who was not
only confident of victory, but of fl
Wnlk-over, This feeling of the people
was crystalIzed In the saying of thr
kuiser to his armies, "Before tin* leaves
fall from the trees you will be back
In your homes again." It wus repented at every street corner, nnd constant
reminiscences or 1870 were rounded off
with boasts that 'Our nrmy is now Incomparably better and stronger."
The German mood of exaltation lusted, with certain relapses, until hist
lanuary, when the economic pinch of
the war begun to lie felt. The first
wave of disappointment was when the
great rush of tlte German armies fall
■d to reach Paris. It wns a forgone
conclusion with   the German people
bat their troops would enter Pails on
Si pt. 8, the anniversary of Sedan, But
the truth of tlio battle or the Marno
I was never divulged to them, nor wen
•he great losses on the Yser und at
Ypres. Hin der burg's greut victory at
Pnnnenburg caused wild rejoicings bul
'bey were dampened by the grim accounts brought bach to Berlin by large
tangs of laborers sent by the Gorman
government to dredge tin* Masurian
ukes In order to prevent pestilence
when tho Bhallow waters dried in tho
•wring. It was Impossible to seal tbe
mouti a of all those men. who roeov*

i he sen victory off Corouel. The we-
|Uel off the Falkland islands wns not

rulged, It caused great depression.
Nothing could longer disguise the
'ruth that Germany a naval power had
been swept rrom the high sens.
No March t» London.
Despite nil the tulk of the German
press and tho military party hist
■pring of a drive through to Calais,
't was obvious that tha German poo-
do hnd bocome sceptical, but the nn-
;fonal spirit wns revived iiy the great

This compulsory shuttle cock move-

of reaching London. Nobody now discusses It except a few rabid Chauvinists.   A frequent forecast I have heard
Is that then* will be two winners, Germany and Greal Britain. Tho explanation of this apparent paradox Is that
Germany will retain tho north of
France, incorporate Belgium in the
Germnn empire and make Poland n
province of Prussia. A large Indemnity Irf expected from France and Russia but nothing is hoped for rrom
Great Britain beyond restoration of
tlm Germnn colonies and the 'free-
do'm of the seas," that great Germnn
objective which no German 1 have met
Is nble to explain.
Rope of Allied Collapse.
Italy is believed to be fighting only
for the Trentino and the Germnn public is amiably Inclined to let her have
!t at Austria's expense, It is common
theory that when the death of the Austrian emperor occurs Austria wlll become part of the German customs
union, retaining only her autonomy. R
will he noted thnt the German public
allot to tlieir nlly no spoils of the war
It Is my impression gained In several weeks' recent travel tlmt the present heartfelt wish of the majority of
the Gorman people is for pence, but
not for peace nt uny price. They nre
still In the mood stubbornly to endure
mther than forfeit compensation for
their efforts nnd lOSSOS, The Germnn
nation enters upon another winter
campaign with tho greatest reluctanee
—but the cry Is still "Hold ou" and
the hope is still tbat the allies wlll
collapse before Germany cotnes to the
end of her resources nnd has shot her
last bolt.
The psychology Of the modern Germnn has never been tested in defeat
it is my personal opinion that should
victory turn full tide npulust his arms
there would be » revulsion of feeling
culminating In a revolution. The war
has not altered the most Socialistic
people In Kurope nor Is forgotten that
bitter proverb or tho German populace.
"Des Mensch fnnyt beun Leutliat renal.'
(Tbe human being commences with
the lieutenant.)
Dwindling Rate for Englund
But, despite all these expectations,
the Germnn people are depressed.
Many have admitted to me that, whatever the result of the wnr, they can
never now realize their passionate
dream of tho destruction of British
trade, British sen supremacy and the
British Kmpire. This unachieved, all
other gains will be Dead, Sea fruit
And behind the hopes of spoliation of
Belgium, Franco nnd Russia loom.-: the
growing spectre of Germany's growing
financial troubles and food problem
Grim understanding now awakens that
victory can only be achieved if it is
achieved very quickly, It is admitted
that the war lias become a contest of
men, money and material resources.
IT tiie dreamed of indemnities were
secured they could only be extracted
in relatively small instalments spread
over many years. The'retention of territorial gains cannot Bave tho bankruptcy of Germany's national finances
-—tbey were slinky enough even before
the war. And it is sorrowfully admitted
that nothing can atone for the decimation  of Germnn   manhood.
One change is notable. Tbe n'mosf
insane hatred of England has worked
itself out. Italy's so called treachery
worked ns a lightning conductor for
some of the electrical fury.
The (ierman women were once even
more vindictive against British prisoners than tlie German men, In n
tram car nt Cologne 1 snv. n Rritfsh
civilian, under escort for nn Internment cap, offer u bar of chocolate to
u child. Tin; mother was grossly incensed and shouted, that she would not
have her child "polluted' by nil offering from nn "accursed Englishman."
Intelligent Germans now grudgingly
admit that the wnr wns not forced by
Ireat Britain and that she only entered
upon it with reluctance. One of my
Gorman friends, indeed, sarcastically
remarked that the Oerman Inspired
press give*-- Itself away continually
by reiterating Great Britain's guilt In
one column nnd sneering at her unpre-
pnredness aud slow awakening in another column. "Tlmt". he Bald, "Is difficult to reconcile with n plot."
■A war to whom tho money la to be
Information has also been received
from the I'nited states Ambassador
that prisoners of war iu Turkey are
now allowed to write only one letter

Ihis regulation applies also to letters
addressed to tbem.    Letters of greater
length will not be delivered.
A number of our leading statesmen,
sailors und soldiers huve expressed
themselves very strongly from time
to time during this war, thnt nothing
but a national return to Ood Insures
victory. In other words we ahull win
when we deserve to. Lord Robert's
opinion is well-known. We know that
hnd this great soldier's advice been
followed In matters of defence we
should liave long ago finished this
wnr—if indeed it Imd ever eome. Shall
we bo wise enough to accept his advice In thc sphere of Religious Truth?
Or shall we wait until Canada has
been overrun as Belgium and the
agony of Belgium Ims wrung from us
the acknowledgement of the Kingship
of God?
Admiral Sir David Beatty's recent
appeal cannot leave us untouched.
When these nnd defenders on land
and sen cry out so clearly and tell
us 'yon can't win until you get right
with God' we shall be guilty of the
worst betrayal of Empire and God If
we go on with 'business ns usual1 and
make no effort to cleanse and purify
our individual and national life.
These nm some o' the considerations which nre leading the Church to
make more insistent efforts Just now.

Dear Sir:—I notice at tlie meeting
held for discussing the proposed
Creamery ou Saturday that there was
some doubt ns to tho cost of transportation of cream.
1 beg to enclose the following ox-
tract taken from the Tariff of the Dominion Express Co.:— 26 miles and
under i> gallons can 25c, s gal, can BOc
10 gal can 86o; over lin miles nnd
under 50 5 gul can 80e, s gut. can 8Bo,
10 Kill can 40c; over 50 tulles nud under 75, 5 gul. can 88c, S gal. cun 40,
10 gal, can 50c.
These facts do not Include col loo-1
tlon or delivery service.    Returned
empty cans  which  when filled  were j
carried   uuder   Ihis   tariff,   will     lie
charged at the rule of llve cents each '
for return carriage on tlio railway.
No reduction on smaller or partially tilled cans. Two live gallon cuns
wilt not be churged at rate ot one
ten gallon can,
From the above tt can easily be seen
thero is no difllculty to be mot In this
I believe tlmt at thc highest rate
(seventy-five miles) it works out tit
nbout two cents per lb. and as this
would include Creston and even most
of the producing country beyond thero
the position for a creamery here ls
certainly favorable.

Dear Sir—I don't often 'butt In' upon public affairs and just now I feel
less Inclined thnn usual but there is
a little matter demanding a word from
someone outside business and political circles. I speak of the action of
Mayor Clapp In allowing the recruits
to answer the cull of the military
authorities and join a battalion. Let
me say in the first place, no one would
have been gladder than myself to have
hnd the troops hero for the winter. I
had looked forward to a number of
activities in their connection and had
hoped to render some little service. I
recognize also tho financial asset they
would have been to the town and I
do not depreciate that. But I hnd an
opportunity of several long talks with
Col. Warden, n man of great experience nnd In high esteem with thc
military department, a man whom to
meet was to respect. In the course of
our talks Col. Warden explained the
difficulties which beset his path ln bis
recruiting campnlgn. It Is not the unwillingness of men to join, It Is not
the inability of military authorities to
organize, It ls POLITICS which ts
holding us up. Everywhere In B. C.
there are small groups ot men blltctt-
ed ln small towns and settlements,
marking time, learning things which
when they join their Battalion they
wlll have in many enses to unlearn
(the remark Is not my criticism, it
comes from a military expert). If
these men remain thus for the winter
tbey cannot get to the front when they
are wanted, they cannot be ready to
support the great advance whicli is
looked for In late spring. By then
we want to have 5,000,000 men In the
field. It will demand of us the speediest possible work. The question ls
not of numbers only but of speed: we
cannot afford to waste time. "I must
havo men now . . . . " These and
many words to the same Import were
expressed by Col. Worden at a public
meeting In town and to a few of us on
several other occasions In private.
Now when Col. Worden put this case
before Mayor Clapp bo did what Mr.
De V. Hunt said at the public meeting
he and nil tbe city would do, be acted
as n patriot—he said, In effect "The
Country and Empire need theso men:
the military authorities say they need
them at once, therefore they must go."
The Mayor acted as representative
of tho city and there Is not a man
■amongst ns who as a private cltisen
and a patriot will not acknowledge the
Mayor did the mm ighl thing. I put
the matter without prejudice to the
Hoard of Trade, and tho Conservative
Executive, Would YOU hnve kept the
men fooling around here when unimpeachable authority said, tho military
'situation demands that these men nt
once Join a Battalion? No—you arc
better patriots thun you lend us to
So here's to the health of Mayor
Clapp-—and no offence to nny man—
We bave done the right thing though
It did cost ns a few dollnrs.
I hope no one will want to jump ori
mc for tills—|C they do, Well! guess
I'll recover nnd bear no grudge.

Mrs. R, L. T. Galbraith entertained
a few friends at tea on Saturday the
■ith, A very enjoyable time was spent,
also tho weather was superb. This
afforded the guests a beautiful view
from the porch, of the surrounding
country. The "Agency" home of Mr.
and Mrs. Galbraith. ls situated on a
hill overlooking the valley of the Wild
Horse Creek, which now rests beneath
Ice and snow. In summer this creek
winds it way through hundreds of cot-
tonwood trees. The hills "on either
side the river" are studded with firs
and pines, summer and winter alike.
Also from this point there Is an ideal
view of the Selkirk Foothills. When
the sun sets behind this range there
Is such a scene of gorgeous coloring,
In fact, all the possible splendor of the
setting sun.
