known to have become Interested In

Prospectors' organization, and in addition two others have appeared on the
scene since the commencement of the
This work is along the lines of the
new activity which the Prospectors
are endeavoring to put forth to get
somo of tho promising claims in the
district working, According to the
word of the secretary of the Associa-
tlou, they will endeavor to special
Ize, as It were, on properties which
promise good showings of characteristic East Kootenay ore, and which are
not now shipping. Their first efforts
have been expended on this talc property, and it would seem that results
are now beginning to materialize along this line-
Mr. Pox, owner of the talc property,
is a Banff, Alta., man, and while he
does not mention the name of the party who Is making the deal with him,
he states that he Is closing a deal for
a four month's option, and accepting
a substantial cush payment.

Bast Kootenay Prospectors' Development Association, if it can be made to

fact that the Association has succeeded iu somo degree in getting this talc
properly moving, which,   while   not
adjacent to Cranbrook. is slill in the
legitimate  Baati  Kootenay   territory,
will, it Is hoped, indicate to prospectors and mining men tn that section
that the Prospectors' Association Is of
benefit to them Just as much as to the
Cranbrook district, and it Is hoped also that a little more support may be
forthcoming from that section In the
future, I |jAk|:

C.M.&S. Report
Reflects Conditions
Output ls Maintained, But Demoralization of Markets For
Metal Is Apparent
The annual meeting of the Consolidated Mining k Smelting Co., Ltd.,
was held at Montreal last week. Reports were presented by J. J. Warren,
president; S. U. Blaylock, general
inauagtr, and others covering the activities of tbe year. Tho annual balance sheet strongly reflected the ad-
verso conditions In the metal market
at tho present time.
In a survey of conditions prevailing
throughout 1920, president James J.
Warren compared prices of leud, zinc,
copper autl silver prevailing ut the
end of August last with those ruling
at the end of the year, and states that
given a reasonable monthly production
of August levels, the dividends of the
company would have been fully earned
in the year, despite the collapse of tbe
metal markets during the autumn.
Higher operating costs, including wages, fuel und freight charges, militat-
d against the possibility ot making y
move satisfactory showing, several
additional increases tu costs being almost coincident with the decline in the
demand for metals produced by the
In addition to the favorable developments ln tne mines during 1920,
since the beginning of the new year
further important discoveries have
been made iu the Sullivan mine, Mr.
Warren reported. An extension of
the workings on the llth level has
encountered a large ore body carrying
high grade zinc antl fair lead values
but what is most significant is that
diamond drilling on the bottom level
of the mine has cut the high grade
lead ore body which was so profitable
.n the upper levels. This downward
extension was located 8,700 feet from
the portal of the lo-#er tunnel.
In concluding hi** report to the directorate, President Warren refers to
the work of the company's staff in
most complimentary terms, saying,
"the staff met the unexpected and almost baffling developments of the year
with courage and resourcefulness,
Everyone has done, and is doing, his
educe costs and Improve
metallurgical processes."
In his report to the president, general manager S. G, Blaylock said:
"During the year the company has
passed through the most drastic period ot deflation ever known. During the last quarter the selling prices
of all the metals produced dropped
very suddenly to below pre-war levels.
At the same time the industry was
confronted by severe Increases in
freight rates and n very serious Increase in the cost of coal and coke.
The cost of oilier supplies still remained at tho highest level. Owing
to thc dullness of markets for copper,
lead and zinc, stocks of these metals
had accumulated to some extent, and
although not nearly as large as those
built up by most of the larger mining
and smelting companies, they were
still so large that the depreciation of

II Is understood that In tho method
of disposal of the liquor so far
Vancouver is concerned, aud possibly
in otlier localities, there will be one
fundamental change of particular Interest. There will be no "stores" In
the sense that the present dispensaries
of liquor now fill prescriptions from
stock ou the shelves.
Instead there will be offices for the
receipt of orders. No stock will be
kept thore. In Vancouver lt Is expected that there will be four or five such
offices. Orders will be taken, just as

These orders will then be filled by deliveries from "'o warehouse, to be

Of course, if a citizen insists upon
it, he may personally get his own or

whole tendency of this office-order
plan is to have everything handled by
a government delivery system and as
little as possible carried away under
the arm of the buyer.
I.O.O.F. Observe
102nd Anniversary
The plans for the big celebration to
be held on the 24th of May took a big
jump forward when Dr. J. W. Rutledge reported at the meeting of the
elebrathm Committee held on Friday
night, that he had been able to make
arrangements with Calgary horsemen
for a classy troupe of trotting, pacing
und running horses to appear here on
the 24th of next month. Plans are
also proceeding for the appearance ot
some of the best horses on the Amerl-1
can circuits which ure being shipped
through via Spokane to the prairies,
which will stop oft here for that date.
The afternoon's racing program looks
Uko the best that the Kootenay people
will have Been for years.
Several surprises are being prepared in connection witli Uie street parade. Prizes are being provided for
the best decorated floats, and also for
the best comic one. Provision is being made for a competition by way of
the best decorated bicycle.
The sport program for the junior element has been settled and by the
manner tn which the committee is
going about this brunch ot the program, every youngster ln town will
be dangling a scalp In the form of a
prize around his or her neck, before
the sun sets on Empire Day. It Is
planned to run off the major portion
of tho junior sports ou tbe day preceding the 24th, reserving a few finals for thu 24th. The senior track
program consists of the 100 yard dash,
the 220 yards, and the half-mile races;
prizes ot $15.00 and $10 oo for first
and second being provided.
Several bands, of a musical nature
and otherwise, will be on hand, so
that the festivities of the day will
proceed to the accompaniment of much
merry noise.

an established fact, but the only question ln the minds ot the committee is

some little misapprehension there was
a misstatement as to the membership

read $25 for family membership, such
as for man and wife. $15 for gentlemen's single memb rshlp, and $10 for
ladies' single membership. The Herald Is glad to make this clear and regrets the misund rstanding by which
the former figures were given out.

THURSDAY, APRIL 28th, 1921
The suggestions whieh have
been put forth this week in the
daily press that the Canadian
Pacific should assume ihe responsibility for the operation of
the Canadian National system,
will do some good if they give
rise to nothing more than a
closer examination of the country's railway problem. It is
difficult for a district of this
kind, well served as far as railway facilities go, and working
all the time up to the top-notch
of efficiency, to visualize the
problem as It really effects oth
er parts of the country.
Coming as they do from no
less un,authority than Lord
Shaughnessy, the former president of the Canadian Pacific,
the suggestions made are at
least worthy of close study. It
is only fair to ask, however, for
some indication of the means
the Canadian Pacific would adopt in endeavoring to change
the present heavy deficit to
anything like a balance on the
right side of the national ledger.
It should certainly not be done
at the expense of the settlers
aloug the lines of the Canadian
National, who are in a great
many cases strictly dependent
upon the national lines for
their contact with the centres
of population, and their markets for the farm produce they
are endeavoring to raise to the
country's good- Nor should any
change be allowed, in all fair
ness, which would jeopardize
for the future what business the
national lines now have to
themselves. Lord Shaughnessy
evidently anticipates such criticism as this, for he admits that
tliere will be a tendency In
some quarters to believe the
suggestion he is now advancing
even though it be merely for
purposes of discussion, will be
regarded as being dictated by
self-interest. This being the
case, there is all the more need
for the utmost frankness as to
what course the Canadian Pacific would pursue if the national
lines were put under their con
new moderation act, which, it
says, thc moderationists are
themselves going to kill. In an
editorial last week, the Sun said
in this regard, under the heading, "Defiling Moderation:"
"Liquor selllug seems to carry with
some blinding- vapor shutting out
the liquor seller from sight and know-
edge ot facts whicli are absolutely
plain to everybody else. Nothing else,
no otlier theory, will explain the attitude of tho liquor people towards the
system contemplated by ttie Moderation Act.
Tlie vital principle which alone cun
give permanence to the Moderation
Act is a co-oporatlou between all
clauses of peoplo to restrain the use
nf liquor Within reasonable limits.
Excesses will brluig total prohibition.
These fuels are plain to everybody except the liquor dealers.
"In defilement of the Moderation
Act, and in breuch of the public promises made by advocates ot the Moderation system, this province is oeltig
absolutely flooded with liquor. From
a moderation standpoint the situation
could not possibly be any worse if we
had a saloon on every corner. Truck
loads of liquor are being dellvereff
throughout this city every day,
"Blinded to their own and to the
public Interest by their greed for the
nearest dollar, the liquor sellers learned nothing from the fact that Alberta
Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia went
bone-dry. They will keep on defying
public sentiment and flooding the province with liquor until an enraged
public wll] vote for absolute prohibition. This will probably be within
a very short time as the evils of hard
liquor drinking are making a most
painful Impression. The orgy of
drunkenness, vice ond iust attendant
upon the closing of the Legislative
Assembly struck horror to the hearts
of all our people. Surely, if there
were not some terrible blindness connected with the traffic tliere would be
on the part of the liquor sellers and
earnest desire to keep the Moderation
Act ln force by guarding against tiie
excessive sale of liquor."

The western front naturally accounts for the vast majority of the

Ontario. Previous to this time, however, there hnd been several attempts at linen manufacture, and
mills established In different 'parts
of Canada, but all had resulted in
failure. From thc earliest period of
human history till almost the close
of the eighteenth century, linen
manufacture was one of the most extensive nnd widely disseminated of
the domestic industries of European
countries. It was most largely developed in Russia, Austria, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Northern
France, certain parts of England,
tho North of Ireland and throughout Scotland. In the latter part
nl. the eighteenth century the invention of cotton spinning machinery
gave the linen weaving Industry a
fatal blow. Domestic spinning and
weaving began to shrink and with
it bund loom weaving.
In I sir,, at Darlington, England,
n machitie was invented, which after
many Improvement! aud modifications Iii.* become Ihe perfect system of machinery with which at tba
?resent day linen spinning mills are
urnished. Tha discovery of a process for the mechanical spinning ef

of the material, is labelled and

When the manufacture of linen In
Canada was successfully started, the
Idea was to pijrchaso yarns from the
Continental and Irish spinning mills,
who were being supplied with Russian flax, at a price much below
that for which flax could be grown
ln Canada. As most of the linen
manufacturers In Ireland were weavers only, buying their yarns from
spinners, It was thought quite possible and feasible that th. asm.
m.thod could be employed with success In Canada, and prior to the war,
tba li/AtsTt buabwia dapt-odad entirely
on these imported yarns to koap
their plants in operation.
In the year 11113, It is estimated
that Russia produced about 400,000
tons of flax, and other European
countries, including Great Britain
and Ireland, 100,000 tons.
With the complete collapse ot
Russia in 1918, it became evident

VICTORIA.—The proposal that the
Dominion government take over th*
Pacific Great Eastern railway will be
discussed with tlto federal cabinet by
Hon. John Oliver on hia trip to the
east. The Pacific Great Eastern is
the property of the provincial government and the policy of the provincial
government is said to be that the road
should bo taken over by the National
rallwaya or at least that new construction should be subsidized.
It Is hoped that the federal government may bo induced to take over
the operation of tlie provincial government road—which will be constructed to Prince George this year—
and operate it in conjunction with tlte
government lines.
Another point wl«ch the premier
will press upon tlte federal government should the latter refuse to take l
over the road. Is the propriety of the
Dominion making a substantial grant
per mile for new construction from
Prince Georgo into the Peace River
The premier Is also taking up with
tlte Alberta government the question
ot construction of tho B.C. portion of
the E. D. and B. C. Railway, which
would be of great benefit to northern
settlers, some of whom have been waiting for years for tiie coming of steel
into tlieir districts.
Tiie following Is a paper read at a
meeting of tho Womens' Conservative
Association last Thursday, mention of
which was made in last week's Issue.
Tho editor or MaoLean's magazine,
of Toronto, recently invited tho Right
Hou. Arthur Melghen to outline tor
its renders the policies uud the platforms of tho party and ministry of
which he Is the head. Hon. \V. L.
Mnckenziu King, as Liberal louder,
was also teudersd the same request.
Premier Melgheti accepted th invita-
lloii, "ns one who believes In keeping
ilie ulr free with fair diBGitaiiton, who
realizes that tlie great fundamental
questions with which political plut-
forniH concern themselves should be
BOarohod through and through hy every process of debate." Premier Mei-
glion wroto further us follows:
Before dlBCUSBlng the situation today it is well that a word he said on
tho genesis of the government on
whose behalf 1 write. Tlmt government is the BUCOOBBor of, hidei.il, 111
point or policy and principle, it is the
continuation of tho adralnistraton
whicli the decisive will of our country
placed In office three years ago. The
mandate given on that historic occasion embodied threo cardinal commands: (1) The marshalling of the
nation's maximum effort lu tlie winning of tlie war; (2) Tho care of problems, and chiefly soldier problems, In
tho period of restoration, and (3,) and
this Is frequently forgotten, the translation into action of certain definite,
concrete propositions of reform In the
manifesto of tlie then administration.
How were these mandates carried
out? Was the full strength of the nation concentrated behind the army in
Franee? Have our soldiers been reestablished into civh fife? Did we carry out our program of reform?
Tlie answer to the first question is
found In the fact, which no man can
challenge, that when the war ended
on November 11, 1918, Canada had tti«
finest fighting unit on the entire allied
front. After a series of expeditions,
after a chain of exploits which added
lustro to British arms—after had ended the last glorious 100 days—the Canadian corps stood as the spearhead of
the allied force, dauntless, invincible,
far into the heart of the Prussian
lines, It would he presumptuous, it
would be wrong, for any member of
tlie government to seek to take credit
for that tremendous fact because the
credit is to the splendid men of the
line. At the same time it is but fairness to concede that the army could
not have been as invincible as it was.
its morale sustained as it wns. unless
the fighting spirit of the nation was

reflected that rcim-nented it in power.
In carrying out the problems of res-
lorution, problems inseparable from
wur, great difficulties were encountered. They wore accentuated by the fact
thut war ardor hud cooled, that there
wus wanting u sense of peril and the
union tbat sense of peril engenders,
and that us a consaquence, there ware
cross currents of criticism and opinion, criticism that sometimes, perhaps, was just, hut thut most often
was cruel and unjust.
lu tlie face of it all the government
carried on. It carried on knowing
that tho solution of reconstruction
problems was its sacred pledge to the
people; und it carried on with no small
degree of success. Our soldiers were
brought back; re-establishment plans
were devised und executed; problems
of transportation, trude and finance
were adjusted, and reform policies
enunciated In 1917 were carried to
fruition. We make no claim that these
vast portentuous tusks were consum*
uied without fault or error; without
mlHtiiki or even injustice. All of us
are fallible and it would liave been
more than human hud such unprecedented achievements bwn brought ub-
out. often in desperate haste and without chart or experience to guide us,
without error. Bul this I do claim,
that Ihey were performed with sincerity, witli honesty and with a high
measure of success.
It is not necessary to emphasize
this point, H Is unnecessary because

Today we aro two years from the
war. It is a short time In these crowded years, yet we find most of the duties that grew from the conflict either
executed or well on tlieir way to execution; and our faces are turned to
the future. It will be a future of hard
tasks, not unattended by peril, but
having a conviction that whatever
may he encountered cannot be more
formldlble than the difficulties triumphantly overcome since 1914, we can
face without Tear. On tho facts of
our recent past we prepare and build
tho future.
And now I come to what we are told
is the one great issue of our domestic
politics—the Issue of the tariff. Why
fs it the issue? it is the issue, 1 think,
because the enemies ot the government cannot oppose us ou any other.
Many of them support us on any other vital measure and policy almost
without reserve. It is indeed worth
while to reflect that against a government which hns encountered all the
hazards nnd discharged all tlie responsibilities of a great war, the issue
raised does not concern its record, but
centres upon'the ancient trade question, resurrected for that special purpose. This however is the issue raised, and on that issue we join. We
lake up the gage of battle thrown
down. We declare where we stand,
all thai we ask is that those opposed
to us be equally frunk. so that the
people can decide without confusion
or complication, and therefore with
Our position on the tariff is clear-—
ws stand for the protective principle.
To those who, like Mr. Crerar, demand the abandonment of tho proteo-
tlve principle we answer "no." We
answer "no" because In our judgment
- and it lias been the judgment ot
Canadian statesmen and public since
1878—the protective principle Is necessary to this country. Thero is, Indeed, no country in the world where
its abandonment would be followed by
disaster more swift or sure. The reason for tlfis is clear. We have next
door to us a nntlon which has followed "protective principles for 131
years, u nation with the most powerful
uud highly organized industrial units
In the world, with a market for 105
millions. It Is beyond Imagination,
it Is contrary to common sense, tnat
our own manufacturers, less rich, teas
powerful in organization, and with a
market of less than 10 millions, conld
compete under free trade conditions
with thoso gigantic Industries of the
United States.

This does not mean that we stand
for high protection. Just as we answer "no" to those who urge the abandonment of the protective principle,
so likewise do we reply to those who
demand a high tariff or the effectual
exclusion of outside competition. Wo
cannot have a high tariff In this coun
try. The western prairies, whicli have
lo export most of their product,receive
less immediate advantage from the adoption of the protective principle than
does the rest of Canada.  Thu western

tiio Dominion, will right itself as time
goes on and homo production increases, but while lt exists, it is a strong
reasoti why the tariff of the country
must be kept us low us it can be kept
with safety, while serving the purpose
tbat as a nation we must serve if we
ure going to prosper Industrially or
even exist as a substantial industrial
factor among the nations of the world.
Consequently the revision that we
have under way, and which we propose bringing to parliament this session, has for Its purpose the fixing of
schedules no higher than is necessary
to retain well conducted industries in
this country, and make it possible for
them to grow in number and in product with the growth of Canada, and
not such as to make it pay them to
go elsewhere or just u few miles to
the southwurd to establish tlieir works
und workmen there.
Wu do not propose going any higher
on any single Hue ot articles, and us
soon us any man in parliament or out
of it can show us that on uuy schedule
there is a hlgi.ci' protectlvt duty tliun
is necessary to serve tiie purpose 1
iiavu outlined, that schedule shall be
1 usk my reuders if such a policy
warrants the accusation so frequently
in tlie mouths of our enemies thut we
are a government ot high protectionists?
The truth ls that the tariff whicli
at present exists is the lowest this
country has hud since 1878. Sir Wilfred Laurier entered office in 1896,
and the duties of dutiable goods averaged In tho first fiscal year thereafter
29.22 ,per cent. When he left office,
fifteen years later, they averaged 2(1
per cent. Today, under this so-called
protectionist government, they are
running 22.7 per cent. The government of Sir Wilfred Lam ior required,
even toward its close, an annual revenue of only 100 millions or thereabouts. The government of today, because of war obligations and war consequences, requires 350 millions or
more, yet those who, describlug themselves as supporters of a tariff for revenue only, supported a 28 per cent,
tariff under Sir Wilfred Laurier to
raise a revenue of 100 millions, xomy
denounce as high protectionists ami
as the friends of big business a government which, although requiring a
revenue of 350 millions maintains a
tariff of but 22.7 ,per cent.
Nor is It easy to grasp the mental
processes of those wbo cry that we
are shutting out imports; one wonders if they ever read the trade figures
of the country. For the truth Ib that
we are Importing today at u prodigious rate, at three times the rate we
Imported when Sir Wilfred Laurier's
government was in office. Tills year
we shall buy from the United States
alone more goods than we bought two
years ago from all the rest of the
world combined. Indeed we are buying so much from our American neighbors that after we have told them all
the goods they will buy from us wo
still have this yeur a balance of 500
or 600 millions to pay them in United
States dollars, all of which explains
why American dollars are so difficult
to buy.
Those who talk lightly and glibly
about slashing down the tariff—they
say they will do so without inquiry-
appear to think that the way to buy
less goods from the United States and
more from ourselves is to make it easier to buy more from the United States
and pay them more millions in exchange. Mr. Crerar tells us that we
have to buy goods in order to sell; and
that is true. But we do not have to
buy 1100 millions to sell 600 millions.
The truth Is that tor us now the more
goods we sell In excess of what we
buy, the better for us as a nation jupst
to that extent we become a creditor
instead of a debtor country.

An occubIoii ot local interest was
observed here last Sunday, April 24th,
wheu the Oddfellow's Lodge, in com-
l-uny witli the Rebekah Lodge, paraded to the Methodist church to commemorate tho 102nd anniversary of
tho founding of tlieir Order. Headed
by tlie Michel brass band thoy marched in parade order from the I.O.O.F.
Hall to tho church which was filled to
overflowing. The pastor, Hev. S. V,
H. Redman, spoke on tho subject of
"Divine Brotherhood." Appropriate
music was rendered by the choir which
waa greatly appreciated, Never before has such a significant service been
held In connection with the I.O.O.F.
annual ceremony, and we trust tlmt lt
wfll not be the last.
Last week the Ladles' Aid Society
of the Methodist church held tlieir annual meeting and election of officers.
The reports showed very satisfactory
progress during tho year.   The treas
urer's report showed that $532 had
heen raised during the year, and a
balance of $425 was in the bank.

Tliere must be. of necesity. a certain
bewilderment in the mind of tlit average citizen of Canada when lie reads
of what he regards us collosal deficits
on our National Railways, und of the
earning of a surplus above dividends
by its privately-owned competitor.
And yet, ns all great things once
wore small, so ull seemingly great
problems beeomt aimplo when stripped to proper classification and proportion.
The Canadian railways problem Is
thut although freight rates and passenger fares havo Increased, thero is
a deficit on the publlcly-eonlrolled
lines In Canada, greater iliis year than
What uro thc factors making up
such a condition?
Tho coats of oporallon ar^ no greater, relatively, on Canadian National
Ruilwuys thuu on any other groat
railway in tho United States or Canada. The problem of costs ls no more
tho peculiar problem of the Canadian
National Railways than it is the peculiar problem of tlie Cunudiun Pucl-
flc, of the New York Central, or of
the Pennsylvania lines, whicli have
been making such strenuouB efforts
lately to effect a reduction ln certain
departments. The increased costs factor is one that applies with equal force
on any road from the Mexican boundary to the moBt northerly lines ln Canada. It is not, thon, the "Canadian
National" problem.
The rates and fares allowed for the
handling of tonnago on Canadian railways are not too high, because It will
he observed that the Canadian Pacific
—mentioned because it has had time
to mature in efficiency,—reports less
than half a million of dollars clear after paying its charges for 1920 on the
operations of its railways and lake
steamers. The great railways In the
United States are not earning enough
money to get along comfortably. The
rates are the same in Canada and United States, speaking generally, (although is some respects Canadian
railways" rates are lowest in the
world.) but thore is less advantage
from them in Canada than in United
States because Canadian railways
have to pay more for big items, such
as coal, than American railways do.
It ls conceded that the Canadian Pacific Railway is well-managed and efficient, and yet all Us efficiency would
not have .preserve.* 1t sufficient net
earnings from its railway operations to
pay Its dividend if tho Railway Board
Commissioners for Canada had refused to permit the rates and fares to
be raised. The tonnage—freight and
passenger—available for the Canadian
Pacific Railway would not have sufficient to enable It to pay its way. Here
then, surely, is the key to the Canadian railway problem. The Increases in
rates and fares saved tlie Canadian
Pacific from operating loss because
they produced from the available tonnage and passengers tho .sufficient Increased earnings to meet tho higher
wage nnd other operating expense increases. Hence ln the fixing of this
rate and fare increase, the necessities
of the Canadian Pacific Railway were
considered as basic, and not those of
the Canadian National. Had the latter been the "considered" road, and
the elimination of deficits tlie desired
object, the rate1 increase would have
been still greater for, in that case, It
would, necessarily, have been based
upon the tonnage available to C.N.R.
on the one hand, and the expenses
of C.N.R. on the other.
This brings us face to faco wtth tho
core of the Canadian railway problem
—Available Tonnage.
Compare the position with that of
a department store where the trade
had to be built up. Tho proprietor
would have to appoint his general office force, his department managers
and a certain number of salespeople.
He would occupy a pretentious building, which he would see was adequately stocked. Thoro would not be a
continuous succession of goods passing across his counters to customers.
But his maintenance costs would go
on just the same.
The difference between tills picture
and that of the situation of tho Cutiud-i
Ian National is largely one of degree.
Us lines were, in great part, pioneor
In character, designed in times of
great prosperity to expand tho productivity of the country. They were not
described as necessary ut all for thOj
handling of available tonnage. There
was reasonable expectation tlmt the
wave of immigration would continue,
that settlement and production would
expand, and that the expenditure on
the lines would be justified In tho enhanced prosperity of the Dominion as
a whole.   This Is true of the purpose
of those who, in good faith projected Warning! Unleas you see the name

Tho C.N.R. lines were, of necessity,
built In the unsettled-—unopenod—
ureaa to tho north of the first transcontinental. Even tho idea that lb©
north and west might be fertile was
openly scoffed at. The road had to
be built ln the face of the rankest sort
of pessimism on the one hand and visionary optimism ou the other. But
governments, both provincial and fed-
erul, know thut the mileage being laid
down waa to function chiefly to make
possible the production of nutural
products by opening great areas to
tlie labor of mun and they backed the
railways In some cases to the full extent of their financial resources.

The soil of tho areas thus opened up
was fertile—fertile beyond tliu dreams
ot optimists even, lt was so Tortile
that the Saskatchewan Valley lauds
which tho c.N.R. opened up, became
the centre of what was known us "tho
Bread Basket of the Empire."
This success, as a matter of fact,
encouraged the promotion of the
Grand Trunk Pacific—National Trans
continental Railway development. It
was felt that sufficient tonnago could
be developed in Canada to support
three transcontinental systems. The
N.T.R.—G.T.P. line was constructed
from Moncton, N.B., to Prince Rupert,
B.C. with a branch to Fort William
and other branches to other centre*
in the prairie provinces.
The C.N.R. lines were completed,
back of Lake Superior, between east
and west, and tho main line extended
from Edmonton through the Yellow-
head Pass to Pacif'c tidewater at Vancouver.
Canada then entered the war period,
Tho tide of immigration stopped. Tlie
productive power of tho nation was
changed to suit the altered conditions.
Somo half million of our men went
overseas and the majority of those remaining were busy -witli work calculated to advance tlie war effort. The
era of expansion waa closed and so
also was the work of developing tonnage so necessary to the success of
the plan under which the bulk of the
new mileage was projected nnd built
We. as Canadians, are in the position of having under our control n
transnortation manufacturing plant—
the product being ton miles und pus-
aenger miles, whicli mean tbe move
ment of a ton of freight one mile and
of a passenger one mile. But our
plant cannot get enough raw material
—tonnage—and passengers or a long
enough movement of them, to maintain its production ot the economical
point. The number of freight and
passenger trains is not long enough
to spread properly tho maintenance
charges, while the stationary and
movable equipment is capable of handling a .greater output with the addition of a slightly greater cost. One
extra revenue train on tlie "National1
lines each way per day, would wipe
out the deficit at the rates existing.
The deficit, due to a shortage of tonnage available can he removed hy tbe
necessary Increase In tonnage, and
by that only.
The question of management, enters
into the Canadian railway problem
only as to the degree of efficiency in
which Unavailable tonnage is moved
over the lines.
Could the deficit bo any less?

"It's as simple as A. B. C.
"But it means as much to a
bicycle as the whole alphabet
does to the English language."
"How's that, Ed?"
"Just this way:—
"The crank hanger is
the power plant
of your bicycle.
"If your crank hanger turns
just a little stiff or hard, that
means more effort for you.
"If the hanger develops
those mean 'tight and loose'
spots, it means more friction
and less power.
"But the 'Triplex' was designed and is built to overcome
those faults.
"It is made of such fine steel
and to such close limits of accuracy that it always runs
smoothly. It makes your bicycle run so easily you'd think
you were riding down grade.
"It takes a lot more time and
better workmanship to construct such an accurate hanger."
"Well, well! I never thought
a crank hanger was so important.  I see now that
it is really just as .important to have a good
crank hanger on a
bicycle as a good engine
in a car."
"That's right. The 'Triplex'
is sure some power plant.

Mr. Blaylock said
"Copper Plant—This plant only op-
•rated part of the ytar. The main
ores smeiied were from the company's Rossland mines and the Man-
dy mine iu Manituha. The results of
this operation were eqceedingly good
considering the small tonnage handled.
"Lead Plant—Tiie Sullivan Mine
produced most of the tonnage for this
plant in the form of crude lead ore,
load concentrates) and zinc plant residues. Tho metallurgical work of the
plant was maintained at tho high
standard set lust year, and -...wis were
still further reduced.
"Lead Refinery- This plant continued to do excellent work, and costs
wero greatly reduced, particularly towards the end of thu yeur.
"Zinc Plant—A great deal of trouble was experienced during the early
part of the year owing to an insufficient and unsatisfactory ore supply.
There has been steady improvement
iu the concentration of tho ore, especially towards tin end of the yeur,
enabling the zluc plant production to
reach 5,000,000 lbs. ln the montii of
December, and with no increase fn the
number of men employed. Tho cost of
producing zinc lias been lowered 40
per cent, during the year, in spite of
the heavy Increases in the cost of
freight and coal.
"Concentrator — That plant lias
been very much enlarged and improved till it is now capable of handling
900 tons of Sullivan ore a duy, with
results very much ahead of anything
thought possible last year, and with
the certainty of still further improvement.
"Mining Department— The Manager of mines report will show thnt the
work In this department hae been
greatly curtailed during the year. The
work whicli has been done-N however,
hus given very satisfactoliy results. I
wish particularly to commend the
work of Mr. Montgomery and his staff
at Klmberley during the strike, when
in spite of all kinds of interference
and Intimidation, they kept the ore
production up so successfully that it
was never necessary to shut the Trail
plant down.

1905 plans were put on foot for the

erected the following year, in conjunction with the Knights of Pythias. The
membership at this time began to Increase considerably, and "Dad" Simpson was elected Qrand Master of the
Provincial Grand Lodge about this
time, being the first from the interior
to attain this honor. In 1907 the Maple Leaf Rebekah Lodge was formed
in connection with the lodge. 1911

Of the five funerals whieh took
place last, week-end, none seemed

during his illness by the clergy, the
end came for him without a mlnlr.ter

to him the consolation possible at
such <a time. He was buried
on Satlrday afternoon with hut the
minister, the undertaker nnd the
