Frank Fletclier, better known as
the "globe trotter," who Ih on a 28,000
mile world's record hike, dropped into
Cranbrook on Saturday evening last
and made a call of the Herald office,
exhibiting his small hand grip, which
bears many postmarks of tlie places
he has visited en route.
Fletcher came here from Nelson and
will leave Cranbrook soon for Calgary. The "gflobe trotter" explained
that he ls out to win a ten thousand
dollar wager made by the American
Athletic Association and that he left
San Francisco on June 20, 1920, on
a 28,000 mile hike to Buenos Ay res and
return, and Bald tiiat the terms of his
contract means that he must be back

Moving nbout the city ln tils close

Fletcher made tils bed near the

A very happy function was held on
Wednesday afternoon at 3.30 at the
home of Mrs. F. Wasson, when about
tweney-seven friends met to do honor
to Miss Bertha Brown, a popular
bride-to-be. The affair took the form
of a linen shower, and Miss Brown
was the recipient of many beautiful
presents during the course of the
afternoon. The house was prettily
decorated ln a scheme of red and
white, with appropriate hearts and
darts, and carnations in the same colors, while over tht1 seat of the guest
of honor was a large white bell. The
parcel's were brought in and presented by two little misses, Gwendolyn
Bowness and Muriel Little, who were
dressed aa cupids, und trundled little
red wheelbarrows laden with tbe
mysterious packages for the happy
bride-elect. Tea was served during

taking part.

Although the receipts of ore and
concentrates al the Trail smelter for
1920—estimating the final nine days
at 10,000 tons—approximate 381.J75
tons, a magnificent gain of 60,7»7 tona
over the receipts tor 1919, tbe total
ni o production of the Kootenay-Boun*
dary district necessarily declines, ow.
ing to the elimination of the Granby
smelter at Orand Forks, which In 1919
handled over 156,000 tons of Granby
ore. It ore of United States origin
is excluded from the receipts of both
years Trail's gain on Canadian ore
alone is 67,273 tons, and it only British Columbia ore is considered, the
gain increases to 67,777 tons.
Owing to the number of Slocan
mines out of operation for the greater
part of the year on account of tabor
troubles, that district did not export
to the United States as great a volume of concentrates and crude ore
for treatment as usual. Of the 8,000
tons of concentrates given in the
reports aa exported, 6,000 are
estimated to be lead concentrates, valued at probably $90 a ton, and 3,000
tons would be line concentrates
worth $60 a ton, all being from the

of iea-1 ore. After that date the Consolidated Mining A Smelting company
of Canada, owning the smelter, lumped the receipts from all company properties, and the origin of company

suppose that the East Kootenays

The Fifteenth Annual ball of the
Brotherhood of Hallway Trainmen
and the Ladies' Auxiliary to the B. of
K.T. was held In the Auditorium
theatre on New Year's evening and
was unusually well attended.
As usual the trainmen had arranged
the Auditorium In a manner most
pleasing, and no effort had been spared in catering for the complete satisfaction of thoso attending. Refreshments were served during tlie evening j
by the Ladles' Auxiliary to the B.It.T.;
in the form of a substantial turkey I
supper and many embellishments, this|
taking place on the stage.
Edmonson's orchestra supplied the
music and the Fifteenth Annual ball
will go down In history as one equalling any ever held here in appointments and pleasure afforded those
who participated. Dancing lasted until
well Into the morning, the New Year
being ushered ln with appropriateness.
The B. of R.T. and Ladies' auxiliary are to be congratulated on the
smoothness with which every arrangement waB carried through.

Vancouver. — That the provincial
legislature will meet on Tuesday, February 8, 1921, was tha statement of
Hon. J. W. deB. Farris, attorney-general last week.
It bsa been customary lu former
years for the Legislature to hold Ite
formal opening eesslon on a Thursday,
but this year a departure baa been
made from thla rule.
While municipal politics have been
engaging a certain amount ot attention In some quarters this week, there
cannot be said to be a great deai' of
interest manifested ln the civic elections. Certainly in view of thc fiict
that nomination day is on Monday
next, January 13, with elections, If necessary, on the Thursday following,
one would expect a little wider and
more animated discussion of munlcl
pal affairs abroad in the city. lint
It's "let George do it" in tiio civic elections as in many other things, apparently.
One of the interesting factors In tlie
situation Ls that the nominating committee appointed by tho Citizens' League at a meeting beforo Christmas hns
recommended two names of lady candidates, and it is pretty certain that
these names wili' bo In evidence at no-.
mlnation tlmo on Monday. Thoy nre
Mrs. J. Laurie, for alderman, and MrB.
J. Jackson, for school trustee.
As to the mayoralty lt is understood
now that Mayor Genest has practically
consented to stand for another term
of office, and is this Is tho case, It In,
not likely he will be opposed. Of'the
six aldermen who have been serving
laat year, only four are In a position
to stand again, even if they aro willing, these being Aldermen A. A. MacKinnon, A. J. Balment, R. Flowers
und A, E. Jones. Assuming that Mrs.
Laurie gains a seat, there will have
to be at least one other new name advanced.
As will be noted elsewhere in this
issue, Mr. Harry White, wlio has served for the past eleven years on the
Board of School Trustees, the major
portion of that time as chairman, Is
not allowing his name to be brought
forward as a candidate this year. Many will learn of Mr. White's decision
with regret, believing that he has rendered sterling service to the city during his long tenure of offlce on the
School Board. Nothing has been
learned of the Intentions of the other
two trustees, Messrs. Nlsbet and Henderson, whose terms also expire. If
they are again nominated, it is likely
that with Mrs. Jackson they would
go In by acclamation. If Mrs. Jackson is elected, the Board of Trustees
will number two i'adies In Its make-up,
Mrs. F. B. Miles being elected about
a year ago on a two year term.
Just before going to press we are
Informed by Rev. R. W. Lee that ho
will not be a candidate for the vacancy on the Police Commission. This
decision, lt Is understood, ras been
arrived at ln deference to the wishes
of some on the board of the Method
1st church. On Tuesday a petition
waa circulated asking Mr. Lee to accept tre nomination, and to this was
secured about thirty signatures of representative business men throughout
the city, Including a number also
who are members of the Methodist
Board. No oth r names have been
suggested as possible candidates in
Mr. Lee's stead, and Mr. Balme.it, the
retiring member of the police com
mission, will .probabiy be re-elected
by acclamation If he stands again. Mr
Balment being out of town for the
past two days, we have been unable
to learn his intentions.
The presence of the electors is required at the polls on Thursday next,
he 13th Inst., in any case, to vote on
the proposed agreement between the
city-council aad the B. C. and Alberta
Power Co., the text of which has been
published In the Herald for the past
two weeks.

It docs not uppear that there
is going to be much of a flurry
in regard to the civic elections
which take place next week,
Thoro has been an attempt
ou tiio part of some to bring out
candidates for the offices which
become vacant at the end of the
year, but there has not been
much success encountered by
those who have sought in this
way to stir up some public sentiment on behalf of civic mat
ters. This might be taken as a
compliment by those who have
beon lining the public offices for
tor the past year. So long as
there is no opposition, it might
be argued, there is no criticism.
Unfortunately, however, many
of Ihose who have refused un
der any circumstances to con
sidor any nomination which
might be proffered them for the
coming year are by no means
averse lo offering criticism of
what has been done by those
who at least have shown some
degree of public spirit. It almost seems us though a good
many people, in refusing to accept any nomination for themselves are only seeking an excise for the position they take
up. In saying that "no one takes any interest in civic elections, anyway," there is a suspicion that some are trying to
cloak their own Indifference
Willi a general reflection on the
seeming apathy of others. The
organization of the Citizens'
League was a step In the right
direction, and it is noted with
satisfaction that two lady candidates are to be brought forward, and will In all probability
be elected as representing not
any paiticular sectional interest in the city, but with only the
interests of the ratepayers at
large at heart. There will not
be a plethora of candidates
when nominating time arrives
on Monday, but it is hoped the
city will be spared the humiliation of witnessing an eleventh
hour scurrying round to secure
sufficient candidates to (ill the
it should be done." There Is
the crux of the whole situation,
and if the police department is
compelled to work as best it can
without the co-operation of parents and citizens in general,
it is being unrairly nandlcapped
right from the start.
A branoh of the Chinese National
League lias recently been formed ln
Cranhrook. tlle chief olllcers being given ns Mali Kwong, president, and
Wong Hong, secretary. Tlie Chinese
National League ls a strong body all
over tho Dominion, and especially In
thu west, with many Inllnentinl branches established In the Chinese colonies of tiie larger towns und cities
Willie ostensibly a iiolltlcal body, being understood to stand In strong support of Or. Sun Yet Sun and his republican Ideas, tlle League still lias
very prominent moral, social and ed-
ucdtlonal Ideals to live up to, und is
(liiito a strong fnetor In the life of the
Chinese republic itself, und Is becoming moro so.
At tho inaugural meeting of the
League held on Wednesday afternoon
at the League liooms, nt 102 Clark
Avenue, there wore present a number
of city business und professional men,
representatives of the League from
Kelson, Lethbrldge, Fernie and other
places, and nlso local members. Con
gratulatory speeches wero made during tiio afternoon by Messrs. J. H.
McQuaid, A. I). Bridges und Rev. R
W. Lee.    Luncheon was also served.
In tho evening tho League met for
organization .purposes and for the
transaction  of business.

The annual report of the police department published in
this issue is a document worthy
of everyone's close study, it
goes to show that it is no use
attempting to charge inactivity
against that department. As
to lhe causes which have necessitated such activity, there may
be some room for discusBion.
The police are called upon to
deal only with effects, but too
often are saddled with causes
as well, which Ib altogether outside their province. Perhaps
one can find an indication of
what underlies conditions In
the city In the remark made in
tho report anent the enforcement, of tho city's curfew regulation. "Without the co-operation of Iho parents .

Tiio federal by-election ln West
Peterboro promises to bo a very ln.
teresting political event indeed In
accordance with prevailing custom,
there will be a considerable number
of candidates In the fiei'd, with Mr,
J. H. Burnham, the former member
acting In tlie rolo of d'Aqnunslo. Mr!
Burnham Is u Conservative ln principle, but ims doubts about the mo-
tlves of Hon. Arthur Melghen and the
government. His resignation was based u-wn this distrust, but in what
manner the pending olectlon will'
clarify tho situation It Is not easy to
understand, lr re-elected there ts no
doubt that he will do as he always
has done-glvo tho government his independent support. He has no great
regard for Mr. Mackenzie King and
probably just as little for Mr. Crerar.
Is lie Trying te Crawl
Attorney General Farris, and other
members of the fovernment, are preparing tho public for an unsatlsfac-
lory liquor act, and aro already blaming tho Dominion government for not
giving the province a monopoly of the
booze business In B.C. The day for
blaming tho other follow is gone. The
present membors ot the provincial
government wore elected by the people wlio believed thoy wore big enough
to bundle the liquor act, especially
after thoso sumo voters had emphatically stuted their views on the matter.
Thus tho provincial government will
he held strictly to the line, both for
the act Itself and the enforcement of
it. Thut cry about tho bootlegger
continuing In lho business as long as
ho call Import liquor Is a bogey. Unless tho govornment purposes to graft
ou the liquor business and soil poor
stuff nnd by tlie ounco once a week,
tlie boot-leyger cannot exist and will
not try. It looks very much as if the
attorney general ls afraid ot the act
nnd its enforcement. But they might
as well face the fact that they mast
shoui'der tlie responsibility and play
the game. The Dominion government
will only be protecting the people It
a monopoly ls refused the province.-—

Denial has been made by officials
of the Spartan Oil Company in connection with an article that appeared
in various papers last week and which
caused a flurry over the .prospect ot
a gusher at the Spartan well in Burn-
uby. The article wet tn the forth of
a despatch, dated from Vancouver, but
Spartan oti men disclaimed any responsibility, declaring that no such
announcement had been made. The
despatch follows:
VtBtouVER, Dec. 28—Announcement by Sydney Miller, oil drilling expert, of the striking of oil early today by the Spartan oil well, started
u boom in oil drilling in all the fields
ln tlie Vancouver-Fraser Valley area.
Tho Spartan well struck oil at
1,600 foot. Contracts were immediately let and work started on the
building of two st.rnge tanks to hold
huge quantities of the crude oil aB lt
comes from the gusher until It ls
shipped away to the refineries.
Mr. Miller has absolutely denied
giving out any report which would
indicate that a gusher ot oil has been
struck at the Spartan well.
"We are down 1,500 feet and at
that depth we ran Into heavy show
ings ot oil, therefore we took extra
precautions and ceased drilling until
12 Vfe Inch casings would be put in
and a thorough test made of what
has been struck. While putting ln
the casings other men have been put-
tine up small storage facilities in
case some oil might be forthcoming,
but at the very best lt will require 30
days to make a proper test ot the oil
and Its volume," was the statement
of Mr. Miller.

No decisions has as yet been ar-
rived at by the provincial government
relative to representations made by
many timber license holders for an
extension of time within which to
meet their arrears of license fees on
holdings ln this proylnce.
All timber license fees must be
paid up by the end of the year or the
licenses wili' revert to the Crown.
Many of the holders who have been
holding timber arrears for years and
have paid many thousands in fees are
finding it almost impossible to secure
money to meet the arrears which have
accummulated against their holdings.
The late Conservative government
when the war broke out brought into
effect a species of moritorium which
permitted the postponement of fees
in arrears. At that time there was
littio expectation that the war would
continue as long as it did. The .present government, when lt came into
office, found that there was a very
large amount In arrears and it enacted legislation which did away with
the previous arrangement. Not to
have done so would have meant tbe
cutting almost In two of the revenue
subsequent/ derived. But ls was provided by legislation passed In 1918
that license holders In arrears should
be required to pay up, with the current year's fees, one year's arrears. It
Is against that provision that representations have recently been made,
holders pointing to their inability to
secure money and asking for an extension of time within which to meet
the arrears.
Just what the total amount of
the arrears are at present ls not certain, but they will probably aggregate
nearly a million.
Hon. T. D. Pattullo. Minister of
Lands, stated the other day that so
far no decision has been reached by
the government as to whether the relief asked for would be granted or,
if bo, to what extent.
The snowfall the first ot the week,
with the ground ln good condition to
receive it, afforded those who posses
sleighs a good opportunity to bring
them into ,play and many such vehicles
were to be seen on the thoroughfares
of Cranbrook on Monday and Tuesday.
Many of the business houses found
the sleds made better progress In
making deliveries, and they were soon
made use of generally,
Tuesday night's snowfall will make
sleighing pormanent for the winter.

INVERMERE, B.C., Jan. 3.— The
holiday season throughout the Lake
Windermere district paused off In
good spirit and wae marked by public
and private functions of a social nature. One blessed feature tbat marks
tbiri part as compared with many leas
fortunate ls tbat there » not one
solitary person but who has employment. In fact there Is a slight scarcity in a way.
Work on the Banff-WliulermerBroad
Is being pushed along but not with
nny marked vigor from this end.
There are reported to bo two camps
ln uxistonce with un average of about
fifty men employed.
The opening of winter has up to
date been all that could be desired
for this part. Enough snow to mako
it feel t'lko Christmas, but only a slight
sensation of cold In tho air. At times
wn have been favored with a thaw.
Special services have been held In
different .parts III keeping with the
season. Ono marked the re-opening
of a small church at or near Spllli-
mnchecn. Watch night service was
hei'd In Wilmer and the Christmas services were held In the little parish
church of Windermere.

Secretary ol Mountain Lumber
Manufacturers' Association
Gives Data
A lumber cut valued at (10,000,000
Is the feature of the post year ln the
Kootenay lumber Industry. Shipments
during the year are estimated by I.
11. Poole, secretary of the Mountain
Lumber Manufacturers' Association,
at 240,000,000 foot, which are estimated to have Bold, taking an estimated
average price for the year, at W.ltiu,-
000. The cut is .placed at 326,000,000
'net, for the purpose of thla compilation, and deducting shipments or sales
the surplus of 85,000,000 foot ovor
shipments, If „u ,t ,he low nlcm
now .prevailing, could hardly fall tu
boost the valuation past Uie 110,000,-
000 mark.
The lumber cut la osUmatt.il to bo
larger by 07,000,000 feet thuu that
ot Ul), With more winter operation,
somo mills working oitra shifts in the
summer, old mills returned to the
game, and a number of new ones sawing, this Increased activity having
been due to the strong market with
which the year opened, an enhanced
cut was fairly Inevitable, eve nthough
the season was materially shortened
in the fall, ln consequence of the market depression that had supervened.
Shipments, on the other hand, fell
bei'ow the figures ot 1919 bx 76,000,-
000 feet, but, owing to a higher level ot both cost and sale .price, were
even In value. The buoyant market
early in the year, which was featur-
by heavier sales to the United
States and to eastern Canada than
were ever recorded hero before, materially Increased the number of op-
orators, and ai'so the extent ot their
operations, the winter log cut in anticipation of tn aotivt summer having been much larger than usual.
W]hen the market had become quiet
ln June, It was not Immediately necessary for tho Mountain mills to begin to hedge, as tha year had started
with depleted stocks. Tht first curtailment was in the woods. In the
course of time, however, the market
position had to be recognized, and the
season cfosed early, with yard stocks
the largest since pre-war years, tnd
double ot one year ago.
Ot the year'a shipment, tht United
States absorbed about 22 per cent, ot
the total, eastern Canada about 12 per
cent., the local market 8 per cent.,
and tbe balance, 68 par cent., wtnt to
the prairie provinces.
At present the market continues
depressed with the .prtlrli doafors
placing only necessary ordtrt. It Is
recognized, however, thtt the prairie
must sooner or later catch up on its
arrears ot building, and that the good
crop must have Its influence. The Increase In freight ratan -Ma already put
the eastern market out ot consideration.
Although during the early !»•* ot
tbe year, tho mUls obtained good
prlcee for thnli product, tht costs ot
production went to the highlit levels
on record, and continued altar the
market demand ended. As t result,
some of the mills have made sates tt
prices that are lets than tht cost of
production, and tha coming year's
operations must be conducted with the
probability of continuance of lower
prices than the average of the past
year. • Logging operation! now In
progress are generally on Uie basts
of lower wages than prevailed during the summer.
Making every effort to get production costB down, the Mountain mill!
generally are ready to operate on the
scale trat the altuatlon may demand.
The amount of togging the coming
winter wilt depend partly on the ability ot the mills to finance that operation, and partly on the maret outlook.
A betterment ot the market would
quickly be refi'ected in enlarged operations.

the Trail location. One of Rossland's
handicaps ln the matter is Insufficient water. The million-dollar plant,
when built, will have a capacity of
from 1,500 to 2,000 tons, and when
eventually it comes into use, the output of the campany's Rossland pro
pertles will be doubled or trebled.
One of the developments of 11)20
has been the enlargement of the copper refinery from a 30-ton capacity
to e. 50-ton capacity, or, ln the case
of low grade ores, a 70-ton capacity.
This was done as a move toward more
economical production of refined copper through reducing tl.e proportion
of overhead, and it was arranged that
the Canada Copper company's concen
trates from the Allenby plant should
go to Trail. The low price of copper,
that metai' now being slightly below
the. pre-war level, caused the shut-
ling down of the Ali'enby mill recently.
Early in the year, to increase tho
murkot for Its copper product, the
Consolidated company projected and
commenced the erection of a mill for
the manufacture of copper rods whicli
aro the raw material used by wlro
mills. This rod mill Is now nearly
completed, and will be finished within a month. It will bo ablo to roll 50
tons of rods In un eight-hour shift.
The company also finished re-build-
Ing its silver refinery, and now lias
one of tho best silver refineries ou
the continent.
Another of the year's developments
was the building of a concrete pumping plant In the Columbia river, Independent of the rise and fall of the
