Money In Hand Is Better
Than Goods January* 1
With the best selected stock of Xmas goods
we have ever had in our store, bought direct from
the manufacturers at prices that were right, and
we are able this year to give the people of Cranbrook and this district the benefit. This was the
idea we had when we made our puchases for this
Christmas season. But since that time we got an
other idea, and that was, that it was better to cut
the prices still lower, and in this way avoid carrying over any stock. That is what we have done,
and no where in the west can there be found such
a magnificent stock, and such low prices. We
want the money January 1st, not the goods, and
we make the low prices now, not later.

HOW TO BOOST B. C.
Oliver passed tliu.ii.Ui Cran-
brook t.n Monday on liis way to his
much m Proctor: Mr. Oliver was
formerly a resilient hi -.'tanliiook and
is returning from n time months
I trip to England, where lie accompanied Lord vivfitn and Ins brother. Mr.
; Oliver, while in Loudon, visited both
i tbe oftlce t.f the Hub Commissioner
j lor Canada .uut also thnt of tbe
| Alient Genernl tor liritisb Columbia.
The office nf Britisli Columbia's
\ Agent Oeiieia! is on the lifth story
ol a building, ami a nre.it many
[people, who nre seeking information
fail t«. find it. Mi. Oliver thinks
that tbs ollice should be like the
DomIn >>n i.lliee, on the i*rniind floor,
st. that poople could find it readily.
A no f her thine Mr. Oliver mentioned
was, thnt while plenty of Information
was available as to tho coast points
ul the province, very little was to be
bail a.s to the interior. He also
though! thnt them was a lack of
concise Information. Although there
aro plenty of pamphlets, most of
these are bulky and be is of the
opinion lhat leaflets printed on both
sides, containing facts in a very
concise form about British Columbia
and the agricultural, horticultural,
mineral and forestry resources of the
province would do more pood than
all tbe pnmphtets printed. During
the last veal and especially during
ibe last siv months many more en-
iinirii-s have been made about Hritish
Columbia at the London ollice than
eVei   before.
rather the man who hasn't chick uur
ibilii, kith nor kin, who hasn't got an
old mother and father, or a mother-
in-law, ur a wife, or a scape-grace
brother or son or nephew; who will
buy uu presents for anybody but
himself; who un Christmas day will
eat a heavy, and, though lovely,
loveless dinner at some club or hotel,
and take in the vaudeville in the
afternoon and be bored and repellaut
in his boi?
(Whey! I'm elad that long sentence
is off my mind!)
Hid  INCREASE IN REVENUE
During last month the Urlt-sh Columbia government received $157,554
from timber licenses, 1332 being issued. The receipts are about
fl 1,000 more than were collected in
the corresponding month last year.
For the first five months of the present fiscal vear the increase over last
year is $293,519.
THK MEDAL CONTEST
The ih id junior medal Contest was
held in tbe Presbyterian church last
Monday evening. Vocal solos wero
rendered by Miss Violet Deacon, who
s.u»n, "Let ihe Angels in Mother"
and Miss Alice Heed, sung "A Sunbeam." A duet "The Raindrops,"
was given by Misses Madge Robert-
sun and Vivian Sissons. A recitation by Miss (iraee McEarlaiie, a
chorus, "Temperance Pilgrim," and
stereoptiean views concluded the
entertainment. The successful contestant for the medal was Miss Edna
Hovey. The musical part of the
program was under the direction of
Mrs. .1. II. King, who trained the
singers. All of the participants in
the contest did remarkably well, and
received much praise from those who
were present.
BIG BOOST FOR B. C.

"The business ol a postmaster,"

THK RESULT OF THE BOARD OK
TRADE MEETING
Craubrook,  II.  C,   Dec  10,  1007.
The Hon. the    Minister of Railways
and Canals, Ottawa, Ont.
Dear Sir: At a meeting of the
Cranhrook Board ol Trade held today a resolution was submitted, and
passed unanimously, that the Domin-
m government he requested to extend f..r a further period of five years
ihe operation of the I.h-niin on Statute 3, Edward VII., Chapter 31,
providing for the payment of bounties
nn lead mined in Canada, and that
;is a measure of permanent benefit to
the lead mining industry the duty on
pig lead coming inlo Canada be
materially increased.
The Cranbrook Board of Trade ask
your favorable consideration of this
matter, and in order that you may
have the facts before you 1 enclose
you herewith a statement as to why
this extension is of vital importance
and to the lead min-
t<> this district
ug industry.
I have the honor to he, sir.
Vour obedient servant,
e   H, Dunbar,
Secretary
MEMORANDUM     OF      REASONS
FOR  EXTENSION OF LEAD
BOUNTY
The smelting works ol the Sullivan
roup Alining company at Marysville. mi the .North Star branch of
the Canadian Pacific railway (Crows
Nest Pass branch} fourteen miles
from Cranbrook, have been completed, equipped and put iu operation
within the Inst three years. Prior
to that a large expenditure had heen
made on smelting works at that
point, hut the work was discontinued
nd the project practically abandoned.
I'he Sul-ivan mine, the property of
the company, is the producer of a
low grade ore, dillicult to treat on
ccoiint of excessive sulphur and zinc
contents. At the present moment
there Is commonly reported to be in
sight iu the mine twenty years'
supply of ore for a smelter of the
capacity of one hundred tons per day.
Under the encouragement afforded by
Ihe bounty the smelter was completed and has been operated so far, and
through tbe introduction of the
Iluntinglon-IIeherleiii process, the
lirst to be installed in Canada, a
metallurgical success has heen made
if the treatment of this ore. Two
small towns, Marysville and Kimberley, each wilh a population of
several hundreds, bave sprung up in
connection with the mine and smel
ter. Orcat progress has also heen
made in the demonstration nf the
capacity of (he surrounding land for
gricultur.il purposes, and a considerable population, ranchers and farmers, is growing up around these
works. Marysville, moreover, is at
the portal of tbe St. Marys valley,
a district believed to be of great
promise as a mineral producer, and
the continued operations of the mine,
smelter and hranch railroad is essential to the development of this
new district. The Sullivan company lately have had the benefit nf
tbe extraordinarily high prices prevailing in the world's markets for
lead, hut these prices have suddenly
fallen to a low level, with tho prospect that low prices may prevail for
some years. We, of course, have
reason to fear that the business that
has heen carried on lately on tto
luiflia ot About 30 per cent for
will be impracticable with lead
12 per cent or less.
The town of Moyie, at which
St. Kugene mine is situated, is
twenty miles from Cranbrook, and
has supported, since the bounty period began, a thriving population of
several hundreds. We understand
that the grade of ore in the St. Eugene mine is no longer what it has
been in the past and that even that
property is liable to be seriously
handicapped if the bounty now
ceases.
We recognize that bounty provisions are in their nature temporary
and terminable, but in view of the
fact that the government have heen
fortunate in the occurrence of a period of very high prices for lead,
therein1 cutting -town the expenditure
they had contemplated in tho payment of bounty to ahoul one-third nr
one-quarter nf the amount estimated
we think that the government could
well afford to make, and would he
justified in making, the extension nf
the period now asked for. Tho
towns of Marysville, Kimherlcy and
Moylo are important tributaries of
Cranhrook, the country is new and
development has hut begun. Should
anything occur to bring about the
suspension of tho Sullivan or St. Kugene mines a great setback would
be given to our three great staple
industries: mining, lumbering and
agriculture

F. 10. Simpson runs Mie Cranbrook
Herald.     No one else.
Lord Kelvin, llu: uoivd scientist,
died on Tuesday al Glasgow, Scotland, Lord Kelvin was the engineer
for the Atlantic cables irom 18f>7 to
18(10, nnd made many improvements
in the apparatus and theoretical observations of the greatest value. His
iv tilings are standards on scientific
subjects. In 18117 lu-- attended the
Toronto meeting of the British association. For his work in connection willi the Atlantic cables be was
knighted In 1K..I. by the late Queen
and lu. I8-T2 he was raised to the
pdei'agB. He was twice married aud
■leitves-u widow Uut no heir.
The Herald has a Christmas box
caclC year.' ' Ti has been enlarged
■ gtfenlly since last, Christmas. A
groai many individuals, not in Cranhrook iil..nr. but eastward to the
(iid I..mil, westward to Japan, south
to P.maiiiii' and north to the Arctic
circle, have contributed towards that
box. In the past you have unconsciously, perhaps, added your share,
This box consists of renewals, and
.no richer or more acceptabfe Christmas box can he presented to the
ijerald lhan a big bunch of renewals. A renewal is much more
atoceplablc than a new subscription,
afeause a renewal is a tangible ex-
gifessiou. of satisfaction hy n satisfied
fffuler.
te&nsist on n good business council
nm next, year, not a council that
jroirescnls any inie interest or fac-
^ it ui in tlie town
' T. S. dill has been a hard worker
in the council the past year, and has
labored with the idea that the whole
jijjople should be considered, and not
any one element or faction.
Crnnbrook is conceded to be the
best town iu the interior ol British
Columbia today. Let us continue to
work along the line that will main
lain  that condition.
There were a lot of people iu town
lust Saturday night. The hotels
were full, the streets were crowded
and yet in all of the great throng
not ono Intoxicated person was to
be seen. The Herald has claimed
right along that Cranhrook was
orderly and decent town, and the;
evidence ot this fact is manliest on
every hand.
When you select men for the council, select men in whom you have
confidence in a business wny.
Every property owner in Cranhrook is interested in the towu going
ahead, in the merchants increasing
their business, in the value of property being enhanced, in this place
continuing as the commercial center
of this ureal district, In it being the
rhngnet thai will draw the people for
miles around. To make Cranbrook
this kind of a town, a consclentous,
liberal, hroad-rn nded mayor and
council must bo elected, one that
will insist on a decent, orderly town,
a progressive town, and a straight?-
forward business administration. It
hehooves cranbrook to look ahead
and cut out entirely for the next
year, and tbe years to come, petty
personalities
Cranbrook, within five years from
now, will be a great fruit center.
Mark the prediction.
Say, Mr.'Wage Earner, if you want
to improve your financial condition,
take some of your earnings each
month and. get hold of some land.
Try to mako as many people happy
as you can on Christmas.
Let every citizen pledge himself to
be a worker tor Cranbrook and tbe
district during 1908.
The people of Southern Uritisli
i olutubia are lucky in having a daily
newspaper like the Nelson Daily
News. Witb much hard work, with
the expenditure of many dollars and
amid all kinds of discouragement. F.
J. IH'aue, the editor and proprietor,
has riwii the people a paper that is
a credit to him and to Nelson. To
daily newspaper in a city the
size t.f Nelson is anything but child's
play, ami to make it a success au
outside circulation must to kept. up.
The Daily News is a good newspaper
and should lind a place in every home
md business house from ReVelstoke
lo Lethbridge.
Tills week and lust the Herald has
issued double numbers, that is to say
sixttvn pages instead ol tbe usual
eight. This was made necessary to
accommodate the increased advertising and special articles incident to
the holiday season. During these
two weeks the Herald hns carried
mote advertising than hus ever been
carried by a weekly paper in Western
Canada at the price charged, and its
payroll has been the largest in the
history of the paper, and the largest
ever paid by a Weekly paper In
Western Canada, and the best of the
feature is that every dollar will stay
in  Cranbrook.
If the newspapers Would forget
about the tale of money stringency
for a few days, the crisis, if there is
sueh a thing as a crisis would br
over. The Herald believes that conditions 'n Western Canada are goml.
Merchants in this city are responsible
for the statement that purchases are
larger and cash freer than this time
vear ago, November was a good
month. Among the merchants interviewed by the Herald were dealers
not only in necessities, but in luxuries also. This is a pretty good
indication that things are as. good
at least as last year, and last vear
beat all previous records.
The Lethbridge Daily Herald has
arrived, and it is just the kind of a
paper that our old friend W. A. Buchanan would be expected to get out.
It is neat in appearance, newsy iu
makeup and a great credit to the
town of Lethbridge. With a dailv
like that, with a man like W. A,
Buchanan at the head of it, the
people of that town should do all in
their power to make it a success.
And the way to do it is for everv
man who has any interest in the
town to put in an advertisement,
subscribe for the paper and keep
iHUisting for it. That is the way to
make Lethbridge grow.
Tbe Herald stands as the leading
weekly of the Interior of British Columbia, and this is substantiated by
its increasing circulation. The Herald is the paper of East Kootenay,
and it has spent a good many thousand dollars to reach that position.
'he Herald wishes all of its readers and those who are not readers, n
merry Christmas. We hope that
this Christmas may be a happy one
for all of you.
The enormous development of Canada is calling for more money than
the banks can supply. All over the
Domi^on a general sentiment is
springing up     which, If encouraged,
ill tend largely to remedy the
situation. Canadians should favor
Canadian made goods. This will
not only result in keeping our money
at home, bul will at the same time
build up home manufacturing nnd
hasten the day when Canada, like
the Vnlted States, can boast of being, if necessary, entirely independent
of all other countries. Our government as well as our people, should
think seriously on this subject before
placing contracts for either material,
manufactured goods nr labor.
The editor of the Herald is abused
by individuals because he does not do
as they desire. Abuse of this kind
so lar as the editor of the Herald is
concerned, is like rain on a duck's
back. We have heen in the business
too long.
You can't make a mistake by keeping boosting Cranbrook.
The New Year Is nearly upon   us.
et every resident ol Crnbbrook make
a resolution to say everything that
he can (or the advancement of this
town.
please everybody, it does not try to
and could not if it did, and con-.
sequent ly it has enemies, but even]
so, whether it is frieud or foe, the;
Herald at this season wishes to say
iu all sincerity, to the people ol j
Cranbrook and the district. A Merry I
Christmas,
THK  BOYS WHO  DID  IT
The Old Man is proud of the
Herald stall'. No newspaper iu Canada bas a better bunch of boys working for ii. During the rush incident
to gelling out the two big editions
lasl week aud this week, they have
worked early und lute, both with
Ilieil bands and with Iheir beads, lo
in.ike these issues a success, and
have done so with a willingness which
is a credit to every man -lack of
Ihem, The foreman, Mort D.
Billings, has been busy placing tbe
make up of the paper from 9 in tho
morning till 12 at night. Leo Pat-
Sullivan, (be manipulator of the
-♦-
black
time
for tlif same length of
inch day, has been pounding
away at the Monolinc*, and, although
it Is bard work "Sully" always has1
a Joke io crack between times. K.
IL Heed, the gentleman who sets the
artistic ads, so much admired by the,
business men of Cranbrook, has had
his hands full but has gone about
his work cheerfully all the time.
r. \. Orenon, who is the pressman,
always wears a smile that won't
come off, and when the fact is considered thai to print an edition of
the Herald like the present one
lakes eight impressions for each
paper, it i.s easy to understand that
bis work Is strenuous, .foe Watson,
the Herald's devil, has not been
exactly on a bed of roses during the
Insl two weeks. The weather has
been cold and Joe, who is a Scotchman, has not. altogether mastered
art of keeping coal fires going,
s worked like a little trooper
lhe rush. "Hutch," the
• Clreely of the Kootenays, has
helping out" in the editorial
and has done some good work
tbe Old Man appreciates.   The

A  MKRRY  CHRISTMAS
Time rulls on, seasons change, anil
ii complete cycle brings us again to
the treat season of reunions. This I
is the tenth time that the Herald
has had the pleasure nt wishing tin.
people ot Cranbrook a merry Christmas. Ten years ago the Herald
wns published in what is now Dan
Johnson's carpenter shop. The
paper was set by hand and printed
on a Washington hand press, with
the Old Man and Mat Rockendorf ns
the full stall. Today it is set on a
moiioline machine, printed on a large
city cylinder press and folded hy the
most modern und up-to-date folding
machine that can be bouriit, and hnB
the largest pay roll of any weekly
paper in British Columbia. This development could not have taken place
bad it not been for the hearty support and loyalty of the people of
Cranhrook and the district. The
Herald appreciates this, more, perhaps, than it can express in cold
type. The Herald for ten years, in
fair weather and in foul, when luck
was in, and when luck was out, has
stood for Cranhrook and South East
Kootenny, and It is gratifying to
know lhat this is understood nnd
felt by lhe people, and it is understood mid Mt because the Herald's
constant I v increasing el rculation
proves U.      Tbe    Herald docs not

We took special pains this
year to select just what the
people of Cranbrook and this
district would want, and as
we have studied their tastes
lor the past nine years we
believe we are in a position to
judge. In buying we took into
consideration the artistic tastes
of the people as well as their
pocketbjoks, and we feel safe
in saying that nowhere in
British Columbia can there be
found a stock of
lewelry, Cut Glass,
Silverware, Souvenirs
Ornaments, etc., that will so
well meet the demands of the
people.

grace, froze over three hundred billions ol dollars worth ot tbat peculiar sort ot water which is used to
irrigate the stocks and other plants
on Wall street, into an ice tbat is
beyond the power ol the mon ot
New York to convert back ajratn into oither «.iw or money, we can
hear even at tbis great distance the
yowls and yells ol tbe lellows who
.ive paying lor their days and nights
ot bigb finance. We can hear the
philosophers reading the signs ol the
times and telling their lellow Americans that the term "business," ns
understood ln the States, includes
and embraces downright dishonesty,
as the latter term ls usually understood amongst common-sense people,
and warnings are not lew that an
edifice ol finance or progress reared
on such a rotten foundation is lore-
doomed to failure. It looks as It
the logic ot the sermonizing bas sent
a shiver up tbe backs ol tbe whole
American people and that we here in
Canada were doing a trifle of shivering too—Just out ot smypatby with
our friends soutb ot tbe 49th parallel.
It would be nonsense to try to pretend that the conditions around us
are as prosperous as they were a
tew months ago. Tbey are not; but
it would be Just as great a piece ol
foolishness to begin to yell calamity
when there is, really, nothing to yell
about. You will observe that Old
King Log is not losing much sleep ol
nights In worrying over the financial
situation. The lumber business is
distinctly all right, and those who
know the most about It are ready to
admit that things are Inst beginning
to come its way. There may be
such a thing as too much prosperity,
and that ones In a while a little
check will do a great deal to relieve
the evil effects ot too full living.
Then the stocks In the yards here arc
steadily Increasing, while those In
the prairie cities are lust as surely
and steadily decreasing, and, what
is of the greatest importance to us
here In Cranbrook, It now turns out
that instead of there being a shortage ol money In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba owing to a somewhat diminished grain crop, the
wheat, oats, etc., have realized the
greatest gross price recorded In tha
history of the country. The prosperity of the lumber business very
largely depends on the general prosperity of the pra.rle country. What
hits Alberta hurts us all here, and
what helps Alberta and Its sister
provinces assist us. Nnw the touchstone is the revenue derived trom
the crops, and the returns to date
are certainly Instructive. Let us
take a few figures, derived from official sources, and compare Ihis year
with 1906.
Up to the 18th ol December, ol the
present year, there Were shipped from
Port William, 20,093,336 bushels ot
wheat. These figures do not include
the amount in the elevators at this
moment. This wheat export is away
beyond what was expected in September or October, and one of the moat
prominent grain dealers In the west
gives it as his opinion that not less
than 24,000,000 bushels have been
disposed ot to date. The average
price this season has been 80 cents
tier bushel and this represents fnr
the wheat shipped Irom Fort William alone, no less than 119,200,000,
every cent nf which has reached the
hands of the farmers and ranchers
who want, and must have their lumber. Last year there were 25,000,-
noo bushels shipped, the average
price being 65 cents, or say 116,2.10,-
000 gross. Therefore, the country
is    better off this year to the extent
i.l (2,990,000 on tbe wlic.it crop
alone The oat crop marketed this
soason amounts to 2,0.0,6.0 bushels
at nil average pr i-e of 35 cents per
bushel, while last year the figures
read 2,238,759 busbi-ls and the price
but 2? cen.s. The barley crop this
year is valued at $578,5:12, as
against $379,548 ul last year, showing a gain lor the present year ol
(198.975. Flax is bringing $1.10 per
bustii-1 this year, which is a decided
increase, the gross figures tor 1907
$317,493, as compared with
(207,266 lor the lust season, a gain
tor  1907 of $109,267.
These figures give one a better idea
I conditions on the prairies thnn
any    number ol general statements:
nil when it is impressed on one that
the    activity   in    the lumber trade
round us greatly depends on the
nrusnerlty of the grain growers ot
the country to the east ol us, it will
be clear that there is very little
room (or worrying about the future
..I Cranbrook's chief industry.
Tho past year has nut been very
notable for sensational developments
in the line ol the erection ot now
in Ils and plants, hut still, progress is
to be uoticed. No one who is acquainted witb tne wonderful success
ul the Standard Lumber company
would needsc the men at the head ot
i.s affairs w.tb a want ot sound business sense in going forward when
the conditions warranted an advance,
or of staying their hands when the
business paths grow dim and uncertain. During the year tlit-o have
steadily maintained their scheme ol
improvement. In the month ol
November, 1906, Mr. C. H. McNab
toll, a representative ot the Herald
lhat by the tall ol the present year
tbey would stact in to construct a
new mill on St. Joseph's creek within about two milcB and a hall ol
this city. According to the program
laid out, a site was procured on the
Ilakcr estate, close by where the
wagon road bttween Cranbrook and
the Mission crosses tbe creek, and
here, under the superintendence of S.
E. Kendall, who was in charge of
the erection of the great mill ot the
ltakcr Lumber company, at Waldo,
the men starts work on the 9th of
September. By the 9th ot Octo-ier
the roof was on and the entire structure was finished by the 9th ot No-
vcmner. Only eighteen men wero engaged In the work. What Mr. Kendall puts his hand to will perform
the, work for which it was Intended.
The new concern was no exception.
When the engine called on the wheels
to go around, they obeyed orders,
every last one of them. They worked
so satisfactorily that a tew days after Mr. Kendall was tree to take up
duty of erecting another mill down on
the coast with a capacity of 200,000
per ten hours.
The most strongly marked leaturc
ol the lumber situation just at the
present hour is the great and steadily increasing demand for railway ties.
Tlie gu-at expansion uf railroad construction, especially tlw mslim-.
tliiuugli ul the t.rainl Trunk Pacific,
has giM-n a very effective fillip to this
branch ul industry. It never was a
dull lino ul business uruund Cranbrook, but just nuw it is attracting
special attention. All the big companies, the Kast Kootenay Lumber
company, the Nortli star company,
tho Crows Nest Pass Lumber eompany, Kubinsun A: MoKenzic, Watts and
Ike King Lumber Mills company, especially have all their tie CLtnps and
crows in Ihe woods. Many i.f these
companies arc operating over uruund
of! whii-h thi-y cut the Sawlogs years
ago. This is one of the points that
prove we have a second crop of timber coming to life around us in the
small stuff that the old timers did
not think worth cutt'ng.
The C. P. It. will take al the t'es
that aro offered at Irom 28 to 30
cents each, if laid down anywhere
along .heir right-of-way, The Grand
Trunk Pacific offers about 10 cents
per tie more than the 0. P. It., but
tlio stuff must be loaded at some
siding or station ot the C. P. R.
system. It will he another question,
however, whether the C. P. It. will
be in any hurry to supply cars to
send ties, badly needed (ur its own
requirements and extensions, to outside points lor another company.
Hut, come what may, the Grand
Trunk people must get tho ties, and
millions ot them, no matter what
obstacles may come in the way. It
is all lor the good ot the country. Wc
are busy at lorty points in tbis line
ol industry just now.
The Kast Kootenay Lumber company has mills at .laffray, Kyan and
Cratibrouk, and expects to have all
ol them in operation next spring.
The mill at Cranbrook is now in
operation, and A. Leltch, the manager, who has done so much for the
development ot tbe lumber Industry
ol this district, is confident lhat the
business will be all right during the
coming season.
C. I). McNab, one of tho most successful liiiiii...|-m».ii in lhe il strict, is
a. .tie head ol three companies, and
ho says that ihere aro large stocks
on hanil, but that ho is satisfied that
the demand the coming your will he
heavy, as he tools confident that the
conditions on the prairie will constantly improve.
P. Lund, inanaget ol the Crows
Nest Pass Lumber company, is
preparing for a larger business than
ever. This company has an immense stuck on hand, and looks lur-
wurd to a prosperous season next
year.
M. 1). King, manager ol the King
Lumher mills, one ot the most successful lumber companies In the
province, savs that his mills at
I Cranbrook, Yahk and Kingsville, will
all he in operation next season, and
that he believes that the future is all
right lor the lumber business.
The next    big mill    to be erected
will go in somewhere about Caual
Flat. Tb.it depends on tho construction i.f llu- Kuotenay Centra, up
.,;..,if in wllcy lut the C. P. It.
makes no bones ahuut their intention
as regards that road, it is e<>n-
oi-iliil that it will be built at once,
anil tin- 'lay it reacnes Canal Flat F.
II. Halo and his associates Will start
in to erect ,i mill, worthy ol the
name nl a mill, to work up tho immense tracts ul timber secured Irom
the i'. I', li. aliing Findlay river and
the upper roaches ot the Kootenay
river. Quito a little town will
spring into existence when this mill
cues in on the Flat.
There ean he no douht but the dis*
trict that will be opened up by the
K. c. Ii. will, inside tbe next tew
years, furnish a considerable proportion tion nl the entire amount shfp-
IihI Irom East Kootenay. The stuff
-is there in plenty, and the development has been merely held back by
the want ol railroad facilities. Mors
likely than not. when next the Herald has occasion to speak at any
length on the lumber question it wilt
nnd material ready to Its hand ia
the now concerns to be opened along
tho Kootetiav river and. very probable, als.i along the Columbia lakes
and the Windermere generally,

A BIG MAN GONE

1902. when ho resigned from tlie

the tariff. Mr. Tarte continued a
member ■■! parliament until 1904. and
did not seek re-election. Since then
he has devoted most ol bis time to
editorial wiitinc Inr La Patrio. a
