At the high school track meet held
in Nelson last Friday evening, thc
local high school track teams that,
went to represent this city upheld
their end quite well, and fully deserved the credit they were given on
their return here Saturday. Nelson,
Trail, Rossland, Cranbrook and Kaslo were represented in the entries,
Nelson naturally predominating, with
close on thirty entrants, while Cranbrook had but nine.

was the fine showing made by Kathe-
ryn Martin, of the local high school,
who by winning ten points, won thc
distinction of making the highest aggregate in the high school girls'
events. In the school competition
Nelson gained 67 points, making an
easy first, Trail was second with 2(1
points, Cranbrook third with 22
points, followed by Rossland and Kaslo. Cups were given as first prizes,
and medals as seconds. J. Burrows,
of Trail, won the high school all-
round championship with 11 points,
and L. Burke, of Rossland, won the
open event.

Hurt By Falling Beam at New
Addition Being Built
to Big Plant
Ray Hcech, well known in this city,
and son of Mr. und Mrs. J. Beech,
was quite badly hurt on Tuesday
morning, while at work at Chapman
Camp, Kimberley, where he was employed on the new addition being put
on to the Concentrator. It appears
that a piece of lumber falling from
a higher level struck him when he
was below, striking him on the head,
and giving him no chance to avoid the
blow. It was found he had been
rendered unconscious, and concussion
of the brain was feared. He waa
taken to the hospital at Kimberley,
and after recovering consciousness it
was found that there were not like*
ly to be as serious complications as
there might have been following such
a mishap. It was desired to notify
his mother, but Mrs. Beech had left
for Waldo on Sunday last and word
of the mishap did not reach her till
some hours afterwards. His sister,
Mrs. Stanley Hill, left for Kimberley
immediately, and it was found pos*
sible to bring Ray back to Cranbrook
on Wednesday, where he is now recovering from the effects of the accident.
Ray only left the high school last
year, and had not been working at
the Concentrator very long, and his
many friends here will hope that he
will make a speedy recovery from his
Caught  in  Ball  Mill
Another mishap was reported from
the Concentrator on Monday of this
week, when a mill employee there
named Hensen had a close shave
while engaged in cleaning out one
of the big ball mills. He was inside
the machine, when it started to turn,
the motor having been started without the knowledge that he was inside. Fortunately it was stopped before it had moved very far, but Hen-
sen was bruised somewhat by the
steel balls in the mill. He was taken
to the hospital for attention, where
it was found that fortunately no
bones had been broken, and he is
now reported as getting on very well.
Tuesday evening the K. P. Hall was
the scene of a very interesting session of Crnnbrook Pythian Temple.
No. 28, when the lodge had the pleasure of a visit from their Grand Chief,
Mrs. E. McKnll, of Powell River. On
this occasion, degrees were conferred
on three candidates, there being present n large and enthusiastic number
of members. Thc crowd was swelled
considerably by several carloads from
Kimherley. The work of the degree
team, considering the fact that they
are but a very young organization,
wns very creditable. Mrs. J. McNeil, M.K.C., presented the visiting
Grand Chief with a mantle clock during the evening. Following the work
of the lodge, which occupied considerable time, the company repaired to j
the banquet hall, where a most en- j
joy able spread was had, following!
which the company wns entertained
by several speakers and a most enjoyable social time was held. Mra.
McFnll visited the Kimberley lodge
on Wednesday evening, where a
somewhat similar program wan carried out.
Speaking at the luncheon uf the
Cranbrook Kotary Club this week, on
the subject of "Canadian Patriotism,"
Walter McRaye delivered an address
which was listened to with interest
and much appreciated by those present.
Mr| McRaye showed himself to be
a firm believer in a staunch Canadian
spirit, unalloyed- by- any- hyphenations. He placed considerable emphasis upon the value of this and referred to the fact that, so fat- as
Canada is concerned, there is no provision for and no interpretation of
Canadlanism from an official point
of view. In the census papers provision was made for the designation of
the inhabitants according to the country in Kurope of their origin, and if
a Canadian of Canadian parentage
dating back several generations wer°
to describe himself as such the census commissioners or enumerators
were instructed not to accept his
statement but to enter upon their
papers the European of other nationality from whence originally h"
sprung. Mr. McRaye maintained
that this was wrong and that people
Canadian born should be recognized
as Canadians and that emigrants who
came to this country should be nationalized as Canadians and fot ever designated as such.
History Not Known
Referring to the achievement ox
Canadian arms in Flanders and
France and of our right to a distinctive nationality which we abundantly possess and the key-note of which
was optimism, Mr. McRaye said that
too little was known of the romantic
pioneering past of this country. "The
schools knew little or nothing of the
making of Canada," he said, "nor
knew they much about the Confederation Fathers. The real history of
Canada was practically unknown.
Until a real national spirit envelops
and binds the people of this country
we shall be just so many groups of
people sprung from different centres
of Kurope and strung together in a
common community instead of one
compact and active body of Canadian
Our educational system should be
so broadened and developed, contended the speaker, thnt we shall be able
to Canadianize the foreigner and
make Canadian patriots of our own
people; but it is not possible to develop education suitable for foreigners until Canadians themselves real-
lie that they are part of a great
In fact, Mr. McRaye, who louthtd
upon the political issues, immigration
and other factors which tell for or
against a young country's progress,
made it fairly plain that he was out
to rouse people from their lelharg;
and make them see and seize the opportunities about them for thc moulding of a great nation—a nation of
thinkers and executors, not merj'y
followers of beaten tracks.

A Successful Season
The report from the president for
the past year was presented as follows:
To the members of the Cranbrouk
Amateur Athletic Assn.:
It is with pleasure thut I submit
the following summary of our work
for the year ending October, 1920.
Owing to the season last winter
be'ng the shortest one on record our
skating season tickets were 50',; less

We made improvements in the
Arena rink to the extent of $800,
nnd the City Council kindly gave us
credit for $250 ott. permanent improvements, the balance of rent, $100,
being paid, in cash.
We were fortunate this year in
securing two circus rentals at $50
each, along with u rental from G. W.
V. A. for $50 and Agricultural Association and Gyro Club $100, and
Bund $25.
Our year ended with a satisfactory
balance as financial report will show.
No indoor track meet wus held this
fall, chlefiy owing to weather conditions in month of September, which
we have found is the only month
suitable to holding this meet in Cranbrook.    This will, however, he aesur-

students of world affairs particularly from the political or social standpoint, to note that co-incident with
opinions of a similar nature from
I hose in authority in Protestant denominations as well as those from
statesmen and other laymen in all
in his opinion the salvation of Christendom from its present harrassed
condition, lay in the recognition by-
rulers und others of thc divine ruler
of the universe. Of particular in-
terest was the following excerpt
from the letter:
"When rulers and superiors legitimately authorized to exercise government realize thut they act not by
their own inundate but us representatives of lbe Divine King, they will
use their power for the common good
and wlsety, recognizing the equul

To Namo Delegate* Soon,
At the middle of the week no of-
ficinl notification had reached the
Conservatives here of the big pro*
vincial convention of the party to
take place at Kamloops next month.
As soon as the word is received, steps
will be taken towards getting the
full representation from the riding
named to attend as delegates.

An invitation was extended to the
West Kootenay athletes to attend a
similar meet in Cranbrook next year,
a local team having gone to Nelson
now for two years in succession, and
it is understood that this wu accept-
ed, so that the event will most likely
be held In Cranbrook next year.
Sunday morning last St. Mary's
Church was filled to capacity at 10
o'clock when High Mass waa sung,
Rev. Father Ehman officiating. Those
present were particularly fortunate,
as it is safe to say that not for a
long while has Cranbrook been favored with a musical treat such as thai
afforded by the male quartette from
Fernie, In the rendering of the Moss.
The musical setting, which was
most pleasant, waa difficult, and to
render same in the manner which
they did, was only possible by accomplished singers and after considerable practice. Much credit is due
their leader and accompanist, Mr.
James Whitehouse, for the finish
which was evident in the performance. His organ support gave thc
effect of a full choir. The solo
parts, which were ably taken by
Messrs. Riley and Thomas, were also
very much appreciated, the quartette
consisting of Charles Edgar, lead;
A. Klauer, first bass; W. Riley, tenor, and W. J. Thomas, second baas.
It is to be hoped that Cranbrook will
soon be favored again with a visit
from these talented singers.

Greeted With Enthusiasm On
Saturday Afternoon
It was pleasing to note that Cranbrook did not let the opportunity
slip of showing the young and victorious athletes that the city was
pround of them. Due principally to
the activity of Mr. G. T. Moir a reception was hurriedly arranged with
the result that when the team arrived at 5.10 p.m. a large number of
citizens were present to greet the returning representation. The Mayor
was umong those who met them at
the station, shaking hands with mem-
hers of the teams.
On arrival the young ladies were
conveyed in Mr. Moir's car, while the
boys were taken in Mr. Henry Wilson's car, to the pust office corner,
where a forma] reception was held.
Alighting from their car Mr. Moir
announced the object of the gathering and culled on Chairman Dezall of
the School board, who said that he
was very proud to welcome those who
had so ably represented the school
while away ut Nelson. Both on behalf of the School board and the citizens of Cranbrook he congratulated
them and trusted that when the Nel-
on und Trail and other athletes meet
here next year, that they would be
shown just a good a time as the Cranbrook delegation had in Nelson. He
thanked the representatives again for
the achievement which was theirs,
through which he felt they had
brought much credit to the city.
Proud of  Hifh  School
Principal Buck also addressed the
assembly as follows: "As one of those
present at the track meet at Nebon
and as a member of the Cranbrook
High School, I assure you -hot I am
very proud of the Cranbrook High
School representatives. With nine
competitors against 29 of Nelson and
25 from Trail, I consider that we got
our fair share of prizes. In Katie
Martin, Cranbrook has an athlete to
whom there is no superior in East
Kootenay or B.C. I feel sure that
.when Trail and Nelson meet the Cranbrook athletes here next year, that
vihey will show their heels to them."
Three hearty cheers were given following the High School yell, lustily
given by the boys and girls of the
High School for their class-mates.
The trip of the high school team
to Nelson was made possible by the
fact that the Amateur Athletic Association advanced to them the sum of
$50, to help with the expenses.
Hoar  Calli-Curci
Mr. VY. Greaves, accompanied by
his daughter, Miss Delia, were Spokane visitors last week. Mr. Greaves
while in the city consulted a specialist
with regard to his leg, and is in hopes
that his advice will prove beneficial.
An unexpected treat to th© Cran*
brookites was the hearing of Galti-
Curci, who appeared in concert in
Spokane one night while they were
there. After hearing her, Mr.
Greaves says, one just can't help bcing an enthusiast about singing.

to the fact that lucrosse is considered
to be coming back as a national sport,

up by many American colleges, and
institutions elsewhere. Indies' teams

would be only too glad to give them

he expected the party to repeat that

The Oliver cabinet had thrown its
entire weight into the federal fight
but without success. He criticized
the ministers for deserting sacred
duties at Victoria during the campaign.
The new leader of the Conservative
party in British Columbia, whether
the new election law of the province
does not force the government to
call a by-election until six months
after a vacancy in the House occurs,
it is believed the delay would not be
anything like as long as this.
With speedy action and no desire
on the part of the government to prevent it, the new leader could easily
take his seat as head of the opposition soon after the House meets on
January 10th, following its session
of an hour or so on December 16th.
W. McRaye Traces Rise of
Nation's Literary
The lecture recital given by Mr. W.
cRaye in the Masonic Hall on Tuesday evening, under the auspices of
the Canadian Daughters' League, was
well attended and most interesting.
Mr. McRaye made a strong appeal
for the development of the Canadian
national literature, claiming that this
was necessary for the further development of the Canadian national
conscience. He sketched the growth
of Canadian literature in Canada
from its earliest period, interspersing
his lecture with poems from leading
Canadian poets.
Eorljr   Writing*
Mr. McRaye stated that the first
effort at writing in Canada was mode
by Marceles Carbouts, a friend and
companion of thc explorer, Cham-
plain. This was written at Port Boy-
Acadia, now Annapolis, Nova
Scotia, in 160S. Printing presses
were in use in Nova Scotia as early
as 1750, and in Upper Canada, in
Quebec and Montreal, in 1765. The
first real publisher in Upper Canada
was Fleury Mesplet, a French-Canadian who was sent to Montreal by
Benjamin Franklin, to start a propaganda and enlist the sympathies of
the French-Canadians for the revolution then under way by the eastern
states. He was unable to secure the
assistance of Quebec, but remained
in Montreal, and for a number of
years nn a newipapcr and publishing
i.-ai»e there. It y- of interest to p<ite
that in crossing Lake Champlaln the
paper he had brought from Philadelphia was damaged by water to such
an extent that it was useless. How- .
ever, nothing daunted, he printed his
first paper and afterwards some
books on a quantity of old fashioned
blue wall paper. These today are
very valuable and may be seen In
the museums in Montreal and Quebec.
Spreads Westward
Printing presses came westward to
Kingston and the little settlement of
Vork, now Toronto. The first romance of Canada that ever was written was written at Kingston, and was
called "The Nun of Canada;"
"Sketches from Real Life" was written by Miss Beckwith, who had come
from Canada to Nova Scotia. The
first book published In Toronto was
published in 1818 and was a pamphlet containing the acts passed by tbe
legislature of Upper Canada. The
same year the York Bible Society
published a booklet containing an appeal for funds towards the extension
of their work. It is of interest to
note that this was published on the
presses of the grandfather of the
premier, the Honorable William L.
The first real novel written in Canada was written in 1639 at Niagara
by William Kirby. This book, "The
Golden Dog," still ranks as the great
Canadian novel. Shortly afterwards
Wacousta" was written by Major
Richardson. It is the story of the
Pontiac conspiracy in the war of
1812, and is of great Canadian interest. Mrs. Suzanna Moody about
this time wrote her book that has
lately been re-published, "Roughing
it in the Canadian Bush." These
writers muy be said to be the forerunners of the splendid school of Canadian literature that now numbers
ver three hundred authors.
Tko Rut of Letters
The first effort at poetry in Canada was a collection of verses by A.
McLaughlin, a collection of home
spun verses depicting the early pioneer days in Canada. Then came
Sangstcr, Heavysage, Darcy McGee
and Charles Mair, the last named now
the dean of Canadian letters. But
it was in the GO's that the little coterie of Canadian poets were born
who have contributed so much to
Canadian literature and have raised
it to its splendid immenseness. Bliss

Five minutes by the clock it required to outline the plan. The
other nodded from time to time, dubiously at first; toward the end with
growing conviction and hope.

the letter she had written. "You

You must never let him suspect the
real reason why 1 am going, and you
will have to do everything on your

"But — you have no money!"
Sarah Cochran gasped. The thought
had evidently just occurred to her.
"Yes, the three hundred dollars
Greg gave to me on my birthday."
"You will need more." She looked about vaguely for her own purse
—remembered she hadn't it with her.
"You must send me some address,"
she said then. "I will keep you supplied. Greg wouldn't want you to
lack for anything."
"I shall manage." Molly was at the
door.    She seemed for a moment to

When she stepped on to the ferryboat in the dun-grey fog of early
morning, the city on the opposite
shore looked but a thing of vapors
and uncouth shadows, a mildewed
blotch on the encompassing dun-
gray waters. The damp, piercing

straight to the bone. Shivering, she

When called upon at 3, Bg*shncss

of the late Dr. Bevan, of St. Davids, S.

Hearing splendid reports about Zam-

by Zam-Buk, and it healed the sore
without leaving a scar.

After hours of dogged trampingt

round a room within the possibilities
of her purse. It was the smallest
room she hud ever seem. The old
lean-to ut home was spacious in comparison. She dropped her suitcase,
paid the landlady two weeks in advance, locked the door, and fell full
length across the dingy couch.   She
had   not   taken   a    I'nil man   for   thfl
three days' journey—she would not
have slept, anyway. . . .
Now as she lay motionless on the
hard and narrow couch nnd stared
ahout her at the ugly, narrow room
an exasperating line kept pounding
through her brain—beating time tn
the city's muffled yet sinister roar;

On the afternoon of the fourth day

asked, without turning round or taking her eyes from the prospect of

Molly rose and took up her hat
from the washstand. "I'm just going out to get something to eat,'
she said, with a suggestive glance at
the door, which her caller's bulk all
but concealed.
"Faith an' I reckon 'twon't hurt

flattened herself obligingly sidewise

Molly turned the key in the lock
and made good her escape. Once
she had swallowed a few spoonfuls
of the soup which a scornful waitress
set before her, her head cleared a
little, her limbs grew more dependable. She inquired her way to the
place where papers from home were
to be had, bought a half dozen and
carried them to the nearest park
The headlines shrieked with heavy

through the double columns:

Brewing is an
industry in
British Columbia
i~M-:\V citizens give thought to what the Brewing
'   Industry means to British Columbia, as an
industry, yet it is an important factor in the
industrial life of this province.
It is not necessary to emphasize the millions of
dollars invested in the brewing industry in this
province, The thing that must not he lost sight of
is that there are hundreds of men employed throughout tin' year in the making, storing and transporting
of I he products of the breweries of British Columbia.
Breweries are constantly improving and keeping
modern their plants. The Amalgamated Breweries
of British Columbia have spent over $300,000 in the
last few months for improvements and equipment.
Breweries nre nn important customer of the farmers
of British Columbia, their purchases of grain ami
Imps running into huge figures each year. There-
is no British Columbia industry that spends more
of its total income right in this province than the
brewing industry.
The brewing industry brings large sums of money
into the province. British Columbia beer is attracting
attention abroad for its purity and high quality.
Export markets iu Australasia, China and India,
are constantly growing.
British Columbia beers are winning tlieir wny in
these countries in direct competition with beers from
Groat Britain, Germany and Czecko-Slovakia. They
nre winning tlieir way on quality and they are
powerful advertisements for this province.
Filets like these are not romantic, but they unimportant and should be considered by every
citizen. They are not commonly mentioned by
those whose business it is tu attempt to destroy
the brewing industry in their determination that
the people of British Columbia shall be prevented
from enjoying a pure and healthful beverage in
an open and above board manner.
Proof of the high quality of the beer iiiniiu-
facturcd by the Amalgamated Breweries is
the remark on recent analysis made by
McDonald and McDonald, analytical chemists
of Vancouvor, stating:
"By the analysis, samples prove to be excellent
beer. They are high in extract, nitrogenous
mutter, phosphoric acid and ash, while the
acidity is low and the volatile acidity practically
nil, which is proof that the beer is a wholesome
nutritious beverage."

British Columbia's Quota
British Columbia boasts probably
the largest number of distinguished
authors of any province. To mention
only a fow, there was P. W. Luce,
who writes humorous articles for the
leading magazines—a dark-eyed little
man, with a French moustache. He
bears out the old tradition about professional humorists beings always
melancholy themselves. There was
Robert Allison Hood (affectionately
called Robin by his friends), another
genial Scotchman. There was R. G.
Mi-Beth, Mrs. MacKay, and last but
not least there was our own Evah
McKowan, the writer of the Kootenays, who was very popular at the
convention and much in demand for
speech-making, Sho is vice-president
of the B.C. branch.
The Illustrious Roberts' family has
given more members to literary
tuino than any other family in Canada. Dr. Bliss Carman, cousin of
Dr. Charles G, I). Roberts, read the
following tfOem for the first time in
Manitoba University recently.
I took a day to search for God,
And found him not.    But as I

Just where one scarlet lily flamed,
I saw his footprints in the sod.
When suddenly, all unaware
Far-off in the deep shadows, where
A solitary hermit thrush
Sang through the holy twilight
I heard his voice upon the air.
And even as I marvelled how
God gives us heaven-,here and now,
In a stir of wind that hardly shook
The    poplar    leaves    beside    the
His hand was light upon my brow.
At last with evening as I turned
Homeward and thought what I had
And all that there   was   still   to

Where the  last fires   of   sunset

And from that kindling ecstasy
I knew God dwelt within my heart.
Enoouraging Canadiaaispt
I want in closing to commend the
Daughters of the Empire for the encouragement they are giving to the
study of Canadian history in the
schools. That is along the line of the
greatest patriotic service they can
render. The way, and tjie only way,
to make a nation patriotic is through
its children. Children are born little
partizans. They love to boost for
"their side." They are keenly interested in the idea that their home
town, their province, and the country in which they live, are the finest
in the world. This is the time to
instil pride of country and imbue
them with the boosting spirit, as the
United States has done, with a resulting pntriotism*which is the greatest
asset the U.S. has today. Lack of
this in Canada has fostered an inferiority complex which has been the
curse of our national life, ever since
the dnys when the very name "Can*
adieus!" was hurled as an insult by
Knglish hoys to French boys in the
street.-; of Upper Canada.
In the past when we have asked
our children to be patriotic, it was
usually to the King or the Empire.
Now It's hard for children to enthuse
over a country they never suw, and
a king who is little more to them
than a legend. It's lik.* asking them
to be loyal to the beauty of Athens,
or worship the greatness of Rome,
They are ond they do, but it's far
away. It doesn't mean them. Patriotism, like charity, must begin at
home. Thut is why I should like to
Bee loyalty to Canada fostered as an
organized undertaking. Since Armistice. Canada has been a nation in her
own right. Is the British Empire going to he less strong because it is
composed of strong nations instead
Of weak colonies? 1 do not think
so. Make the separate links strong
am] it is the kindest thing you can do
for the chain. Make Canada a great
nation, and the British Empire will
take care of itself.
Canada's position is unique. 1
think 1 sec her to thc end of time,
standing between the United States
and Great Britain and giving a hand
to each. She is the keystone in the
great Anglo-Saxon arch that spans
the world. We are proud to belong
to the British Empire, but We must
not forget that we belong also to that
World Empire of English-speaking
republics lhat must lead thc other nations down the long avenue of peace,
progress nnd Christian brotherhood.
A Canadian literature would be the
greatest possible force in developing
a Canadian esprit de corps, because
it penetrntes to so large a number.
For my pnrt, any little writing I may
do, I should like to be for the honor
and ghiry of Canada. I love her.

there is no snow and the road is in

Mr. James Moreland, of Windermere, who has supplied Banff all summer with fresh vegetable.1- from his
farm nt Windermere, took over another truck-load of fresh vegetables
last week to Banff. As this venture
has turned out so well Mr. Moreland
has plans for the coming spring,
which he hopes will result in increased production of vegetables and the
purchase of another truck, so that
he will be able to take over four
truck loads each week to Banff. The
residents of Banff find thut the vegetables grown in the Windermere district are far superior to what is shipped in from other points, and of
course, coming over by truck, they
are much fresher as they obtain them ,

The question of weather and ell
matte conditions is aiways one of unfailing interest as the season passes
about. The solons and wise ones
shake their heads and say winter is
closing in early or it is to be an
open fall. Luke Windermere district
is not an exception in any of these
respects. The record wf climatic conditions for many years goes to show,
however, that the seasons in here area;
weil marked and that the time for
[their commencement is shown hy unfailing signs. Across the lake from
here stands Mount Swansea, which
rises to an elevation of 5000 feet
above the sen. It is ever of interest
in the country of the mountains to
watch the descent of the snow line as
the summer closes out aud full he-
gins, but Swansea being so close in
and easily observable gives particularly good opportunity for the observation of snow on its sides. Starting with the year 1812 the record
show that ubout the middle of September is the average date for the
first appearance of snow on the
mountain's side. The range is from
the middle of August to the middle
of October. The years 1012 and
iy 10 were each marked by an early
fall of snow visible on Mount Swansea and were followed by a moderate
winter in UHil but one tremendously drawn out in 1917. On that year
Lake Windermere did not free itself
from ice until the .'Ird of May, as
compared with an average of nbout
the 15th of April. The fall of 11*22
established a record, for no snow
was visible on Mount Swansea that
season until the .'list of October.
The winter was one of much snow,
while the lake was a few days late
En freeing itself of ice.
This season snow was visible for
the first time on Mount Swansea on
the 22nd of September as compared
with the 20th of September last year
and the fourth day of October the
year before. Since the slight flurry
of squaw winter passed away this
fall the weather has left hut little
to be desired, the nights have beon
cool, the days very warm and both
entirely free of snowfalls. At this
time of writing the roads are in the
pink of condition, the way across
the mountains by Banff-Windermere
toad and the through routes north
and south up and down the Columbia-
Kootenay  Valley  being <>f  the best.

Thursday evening last on the occasion of his passing through this part
on his first official visit since the date
of his recent re-election to parliament. Mrs. King and Miss King
were given un informal dinner and
reception by Mrs. W. Howard Cleland
at her home. Both funtions were
successful in every way. being specially marked by the cordiality with
which out and out members of huth
the old political parties sank their
differences in order to make the gathering a unanimous expression of good
feeling to the guests of the evening.
An outstanding speech was delivered by Hon. Dr. King at the dinner
and was greatly appreciated and met
with most hearty applause. Professor Diehl's orchestra was in attendance Snd did much to heighten the
evening's enjoyment by the splendid
rendering of popular and national
airs. The menu was of the best nnd
was well placed.
Thursday evening Mrs. Cleland gave
n most enjoyable dinner and reception for Mrs. King nnd her niece,
Miss King. The Hon. Dr. King, mem-:
ber elect for East Kootenay and Minister of Public Health and S.C.R., is
at present touring this province, accompanied by Mrs. King nnd Miss
King, Qnd his secretnry, Mr. Heid-
man, of Ottawa. The Board of Trade
of the Windermere district took this
opportunity of giving a banquet to
the Hon. Dr. King and the same evening Mrs. Cleland gave a dinner for
Mrs. King and Miss King. After
dinner a number of other ladies of
the district came in to meet Mrs.
King, so that all had an opportunity
of getting acquainted. Music and
songs, with violin solos by Miss Helen
Magarey, off Adelaide, Australia,
passed the time very pleasantly, and
after the banquet given by thc Board
of Trade was over, a number of the
gentlemen accompanied the Hon. Dr.
King to the home of Mrs. Cleland and
joined the ladies, listening to the music. After refreshments were served and before the final good-nights
were said, all joined hands and sang
"For Auld Lang Syne," which was
quite appropriate, as nearly all present happened to be old-timers in
the West.

the Bills of this lodge know hu»v to

well known, and Monday night's smoker was without a doubt the best yet
staged under their auspices. Variety
was the predominating feature and

V. A. Bowes, assistant district

many years, and one of his notable
trips was with the first troop-train
from the East Kootenay" district
through to the training camp at Val-
nrtier, Que., in the early days of
the war. He was on the train from
Yahk all the way through, and provision was mude en route for feeding the troops, nnd other arrangements. Discipline was not at all
chafing o nthe soldiers, and it can
well be imagined that his task would
not be an easy one, especially as organization in those days, from the
railway point of view even, was not
developed for military purposes as
it wns later.

THURSDAY,  OCTOBER  28th, 1926
NOT for many yeai have prospects been as
bright, generally considered, for the city of
Cranbrook, as they seem al present. There has
been a gratifying and steady building program carried on in the city, a good many substantial residences and oilier buildings having been erected of
late, some by the owners, and other for investment
purposes, while alterations linve been made to existing premises thai enhance -.'allies, and contribute
their quota to the building activity which has been
apparent this year. Then has not been anything
approaching a boom, bul in various directions there
have been activities which indicate that Cranbrook
can substantiate its claims to bcing the centre of the
most solidly prosperous interior district. Rait way men
report more traffic appearing than is often the
case at this time of year, which means that if the
freight is moving, husiness in general must also be
to briny about the distribution of the goods to the
consumers. Mining is active— there are now several mines in East Kootenay shipping quite largely
to tHe Trail smelter- and promises to bring
this district still more to the front. Conditions, in
the lumber business could certainly he a great deal
better, but they arc at least no worse than for some
time past, and in some directions there appear to
lie signs of impending  improvement.
Cranbrook is a good place to live in just
at the presenl time, and wh'cn people from a distance
who know conditions elsewhere say that this is
the best place they know of, it is not just idle
talk. Nor is it when thc old-timers in the district say they have never seen better prospects for
the place than at the present time .
THK showing the young athletes from the high
school made at Xelson "last week is creditable
in the extreme, not only for the awards they brought
back, but for the spirit which the inter-school athletic meets engender. There is nu better stimulant
than a healthy rivalry and in this country uf distances it is hard sometimes to bring this ahout.
It is one line of athletic endeavor lhat should be fostered by a yearly meet in various towns, in order to
bring as many into ii as possible, and il is hoped
now that Cranbrnok has invaded the West Kootenay
with its athletic emissaries of good feeling, tlie
way wil! be cleared fur lhat district to pay a return
visit another year. Twenty year-, ago it was a common thing to take a special train for an athletic
event of sonic moment in a neighboring town, but
business exigencies seem to have curtailed this manifestation of enthusiasm. Nevertheless, there is certainly room for a revival of inter-city athletics, and
all who helped in making it possible for the boys'
and girls' teams to go to Xelson last week, did something really worth while.
IT has become only too common to deprecate mo-
lives. Politicians in particular are made the target of many barbed shafts of disparagement. It
is said "they are all in it for what they can get out
of il." It may lie true, and probably is in some
cases, tliat ihere are some men iu politics who value
tlie public trust lightly, and turn it to pecuniary advantage when the chance offers. But it is not su
in the majority of cases. M,any people wondered
why the Hon. Arthur Meighen did not take tlie of-
crs made to him of a scat in parliament, and make
another attempt to carry his party into power. The
reason becomes apparent when it is known
that in leaving politics Mr. Meighen assumes a
position carrying a salary equal to double that which
the prime minister receives, including the usual sessional indemnity as well. Of a surely Mr. Meighen
must have been in politics for what he could get out
of it! lie got lots of rebuffs and petty criticism,
lots of responsibility and lots uf lukewarm support,
and not much salary with it. Xow he goes to something where his recognized ability gets more
like its due. without the limitation of politics. And
while the corporation he goes to undoubtedly gains,
the country as a whole loses.

for Lacrosse purposes. We nolo
that in recent press reports of the
cup presentation mode by tho
Native Sons of Canada, no mention
was made of the free use of our
grounds for this purpose.
It was suggested to us last spring
that we write the Rotary and other
service clubs asking them for some
financial assistance in securing the
i.aid athletic grounds. A letter was
addressed to them on March '.tth, but
so far we hnve had no acknowledgement of same.
It must be apparent that We cannot be expected to carry on and supply athletic grounds free, when the
revenue should be placed in thc
Arena rink to make improvements
there where the surplus is made.

City Council on the 21st and wero
able to secure improvements at.tht*

This was the comment of a
customer this week on the delivery of a piece of. printing to
him this week, executed on
short notiee. This is what the
Herald is turn ing out right
along'—not only just what you
wont, but more than you expect—and it doesn't cost any

power for mining purposes at Kimberley,   Fort   Steele   and   Moyie.
To be known us the B. & B. Mining Syndicatet a local company is bcing formed to thoroughly prospect a
group of claims which have been
staked about four miles from the
eily, near Patton's Lake, and not
far from the ranch of A. H. Playle.
Col. R. S. Warren, a prospector and
geologist of considerable experience
is the locator of the claims, and in
doing so brought into use an elcctri-
cnl diviec whicli he has been making
use- of for some time past in the1
location of ore bodies. He has spent
.some time at Kimberley and district
this summer, und is convinced that
the claims he has now staked will reveal a continuation of the lead from
the Sullivan Mine. He has worked
over the ground south from Kimberley thoroughly, and is convinced
that in the location now staked a deposit of silver-lead ore will be revealed.
It is planned to raise $10,000 by
means of the local syndicate, which
will enable diamond drilling to be
carried un, to really determine what
prospects there are for making a
mine there, and the extent of an ore
body if one is located. In the mean-
lime a start has been made in raising the required money, nnd the
claims slaked have been vested in
three trustees, who nre Col. Warren,
A. ('. Bowness and C. J. Little.
Perhaps it is too much to hope for
ihat there will be a second Sullivan
Mine found so close to the city of
Cranbrook, but it is noteworthy that
many mining engineers and geologists have expressed the opinion that
there ure vast ore bodies in this lo-
calily still to be uncovered.

Worthwhile Authors
This is Dominion book week in
Canada, and for our country the service clubs, lhe associated press and
various societies are appealing to the
Canadian people for an encouragement of our Canadian literature.
Not on the ground of patriotism
alone, but because they think that
Canadian literature stands for every
thing that is best in Canada, and that
a knowledge of it will make the Can
adian citizens more acqainted with
the country and give,them a better
knowledge of it. Of the novelists
whose works should be on the shelves
of every reader, Mr. McRaye asserted
I lint the novels of the following writ-
era all reflected the vein of Canadian
life: Oilbort Parker's "Seats of the
Mighty, I'he    Right   of   Way,"
"U'hen Diamond Came to Pontine,"
"Tlu> Lane That Had no Turning,"
"I'errie and His People;" and Agnes
l.iuit's "Lords of the North."
Stephen Loncock's "Sunshine
.Sketches of a Little Town," Ralph
Connor's "Glorfearry School Days"
and lhe works of S. Thompson, Arthur Stringer, Fraser, Basil King,
Grant Allen and a host of others, all
made excellent reading. Mr. Me*
Raye'fl contribution to the program
from the poets of Canada included
the following poems: "The Cure of
Caluinette," "Mon Frere Camille,"
"When Albani Sang," "The Stove
Pipe Hole," from Dr. Drum mon d's
"Habitant," "The Ballard of Jaada,"
Pauline Johnston; "The Odessy of
•Erbert 'Iggings,*' by Robert W. Service; "The Grove Tree," by Blisf
Carman; "The House," by Chas. G,
D. Roberts; the "Le Basse Road," by
Stringer, and "Fin de Siecle," by
Vance Cooke,
During the evening the readings of
Mr. McRaye were interspersed with
vocal solos, Mrs. Chas. Harrison and
Mrs. J, Kennedy favoring with pleasing selections, to which they were obliged to respond with encores; Mrs.
R. Potter acted as accompanist.

Report pf Conference at Helingfon
(Continued from last week)
More than fifteen hundred young
men and boys from fifty-two nations
met at this most remarkable gathering. The oldest and largest Christian
international organisation, t h e
World's Alliance of the Y.M.C.A.,
held this conference from August 1st
to 6th. The first world's conference
was held in 1855. Eighteen conferences in all have been held. The
nineteenth was planned for Heling-
fors in 1918 but wos forbidden hy
the Czar of Russia. This was the
first world conference since the war,
and it was being held in a free country that has a republican form of
government, prohibition, woman's suffrage and the world's greatest, runners.
The delegates came from all ports
of the globe to discuss and take action on leading ptoblems facing the
youth of today. Youth is in revolt.
Youth is bewildered, nnd the Y.M.
C.A. is learning why. For two years
serious studies have been cnrried on
in Asia, North America, Europe,
South America, and parts of Africa
to determine what young men ate
thinking in regard to problems of
nationality, race, sex, home, vocation
and sports. The general subject of
the conference was "Y'outh Facing
the Christian Way of Life in a
Changing World." The dominant
and unique idea and plan is that
youth is actually speaking for itself
on a world scale.
Six cultures were represented at
the conference: the Teutonic, the An-
i > glo-Saxon, the Scandinavian, the Slavic, the Oriental, nnd the Negroid.
More than thirty languages were spoken, yet three languages only were
used as the official means of communication—English, French and German.
A strong group of well-known
leaders were in, attendance. Among
these were Lord Radstock, of England; Prince Oscar Bernadotte, brother of King Gustave of Sweden;
the Metropolitan of the Greek Orthodox Church, of Corfu, Greece; General Chiekel, of the Polish Army;
Judge Adrian Lyon and Mr. Fred W
Ramsey, of the United States, Judge
Fahani, of Cniro; Canon K. S.
Woods, of Cambridge; Dr. R. Mott,
newly elected chairman of the
World's Committee of the Y.M.C.A.,
as well as General Secretary of the
American National Council; Colonel
Badelscu, head of the National School
of Physical Education of Rumania;
Professor R. Dyboski, head of tho
English department of the University
of Krakow; Archbishop Soderblom,
of Upsala; Mr. K. T. Paul, ouitanding

of the enquiry is the general fire hazard existing in the interior districts
in the summer months, and to gain
suggestions for the best means of
combating it. No particulars as to
the hall of meeting have yet been arranged. It was announced originally
that the sessions would also enquire
into the unpropitious conditions
which have existed in regard to the

be had very economically. The sawdust is fed down on to the fire
through a hopper and the heat can
be regulated just as easily as with
any other kind of stove. One woulJ
hazard the opinion that where sawdust is as easily obtainable as in Cranbrook, und so cheaply, the installation of a stove of this type
would provide heat equal to the most
severe weather at a cost far below
that of coal or cord wood.

Not long ago the business houses
in the city quite generally went to
some expense in equipping themselves with uniform flags and flagpoles for use when it was desired
to have the city take on any kind of
a gay appearance. These have now
been used on three or four occasions,
and already a number of them have
disappeared, one concern having lost
a couple recently, while other business places report flags or poles, or
both, having been taken on other oc
casions. Whether this is done deliberately or not, it means that loss
and probably damage has been done
to this property, which does not show
the perpetrators up in a very favorable light.

j The Club Hall, on Friday evening
j lost, was the scene of an enjoyable
dance, staged under the auspices of
the Wardner Athletic Association.
The music was furnished by the O.K.
Trio, of Fernie, and this orchestra,
comprised of piano, violin and traps,
put out the best program of dance
music which has been heard in Wardner for a long, long time, giving their
music in a snappy manner and with
lots of pep. The crowd in attendance was a good one, although not as
large oa those attending former Association dances, and for the first
time it was noticed that the surplus
of those attending were of the fair
sex, attendance on this score always
lieing on the other side of the books,
as a rule. A word to the Association.
Since the Association have a definite
object in raising funds by these affairs, why not put dance admission
on the same status as conducted elsewhere, charging extra ladies 60c admission? Supper was served at midnight, and the dance carried on until
two-thirty a.m. The next affair un-
iet the supervision of the Association, will be the bazaar, conducted
in the Club Hall on Friday evening.
November 12th, by the Ladies' Basketball Club. It is also expected
that shortly following the bazaar a
second dance will be given by the

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Thompson motored to Cranbrook on Monday afternoon, Frank visiting the dentist, Dr.
Fergie, to have an offending molar
attended to.
It will pay the ladies of Wardner
and neighboring towns particularly
to pntronize the fancy-work booth at
the bazaar on Friday evening, Nov.
12th, when considering Xmas presents, as prices are planned to be
valued reasonably, giving good value.
There will also be plenty for the
men-folk and the kiddies, so why not
jump in the family Ford and make
it n point to attend?
A large number of Wardnerites
niotored to Jaffray on Saturday evening to attend the "Mulligan" dance
held there by the Farmers' Institute,
among them being Misses Ira Taylor,
Ivy Waters, Jennie Eastwood, Laurlne Corbett, Astrid Johnson, Vera
Renstrom; Messrs. Harry and Sam
Thompson, Ben Embree, John A Law-
son, John Moore, Jimmy Gordon, Ole
Helmer, Harold, Corsan and Morris
Anderson, Roy Milliard, Chas. Baines
jnr., Andy Gran berg, Gust Edward-
son; and Sir. and Mrs. Tony Rosicky.
While many attended through curiosity, as to the nature of a "Mulli-
iran," events proved the evening to
>e a huge success, much to the satisfaction of those in charge, and a
rrand rush was made on the "stew
cettle" when supper was served at
twelve-thirty, and huge plates of
bread and butter melted like magic.
The music was furnished by the O.K.
Trio, of Fernie, in their own peppy
style, which left nothing further to
be desired.
Jack Dow returned to Wardner on
Monday evening to take up his work
here again, after spending the past
week at his home in Cranbrook, during the illness and death of his sister.
Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Wright, Mr. and
Mrs. R. Harrison und daughters motored to Cranbrook on Friday last.
Another place of business is to be
built in Wardner shortly, Mr. and
Mrs. Rothwell, snr., having purchased
a lot next to thc Company Store,
where they will erect a building to
be used as a confectioners and bakery. Mrs. Rothwell is well experienced in these lines, and it will be a
convenience to local people to be
able to purchase locally rather than
buy by mail or when motoring to
town as at present.
Jimmy Gordon was host to a number of young folks at his establishment, at a card party and dance, on
Tuesday evening of last week.
Howard Haney, of Yahk, spent the
week-end visiting his family in Wardner, being obliged to take a couple
of days off work owing to a slight

FactorUt at Ladnar ft AbboUford
In reur of this undefined
land   extended   the   prairie,
rush of miners to the gold fields of
B.C. was at its height in the 'GOs, the
Hudson Bay Company in Victoria,
whose chief factor was Alexander
Munro, when the company hnd complete control of the flour und other
necessities nnd could have raised tlie
flour suck at any price, the company
chose that the miners were simply to
he charged only the current price of
flour. So there is an honorable side
to tlie great company. What other
wholesale house would do this?
Opposing the Company
The enemies of the company were
numerous in Canada, and had made
themselves  felt even  within  its own
territory of Rupert1* I.ainl.    Every
year added lo their numbers. Those
bom there said their poverty was
owing to the country heing cut off
from all outside Irade and emigration hy the direct action the company
took to keep things in Ihe same condition. All Canadians or others who
penetrated into the country and set'
lied there joined this discontented
party, whicli had assumed such importance previous to the arrangements belnjf made for the transfer of
the country, that had the company
refused to comply with it and persisted in its former policy of seclusion,
it would soon doubtless have had all
power forcibly wrested from it by
the Canadian'party within ils own
Unfortunately, the arrangement
entered into had an nir of purchase
nbout it, and a cry resounded
throughout the Northwest that its inhabitants were being bought and sold
like so many cattle. With such n
text the most commonplace of ricmo-
sognes could preach for hours; and
poor indeed must hnve been their
chip-trap eloquence of an ignorant
and impressionable people such us
those of Red River had not been
aroused by it.
UnSurveyed Lands
The surveyors were at work all
through the autumn of 18(11), ond in
prosecuting their operations frequently ran chain lines across the
farms of men whoso language they
could not speak, and with whom they
had no feelings in common. A report soon got abroad that the Cuna-
diun government intended possessing
themselves of all the land for the purpose of allottine* it among the host
of immigrants who rumor said were
to follow the establishment of tho
new order of things. A large proportion of farmers could produce no
title-deeds to thc lands they claimed;
mnny could not even assert what is
generally recognized as the outward
visible symbol of possession in such
matters, namely tbe fact of their ha.
ing fenced in. The country had never
been regularly laid off for settlement,
but according ns each successive set-' mense. He spoke Knglish intellig

over which, to a depth of two miles
with a breadth equal to the river
frontage, the farmer exercised by
custom a right of cutting logs. There
was no market tor produce. The
nearest railway station was about 600
miles distant, in the United .States.
Tlu* export of grain was practically
impossible, und there was no internal
demand for it, as every settler grew
enough corn for his own consumption.
The consequence wus I bal not more
thnn a few acres oi' each farm was
ever cultivated or fenced in, the remainder of the Hill litres being allowed to remain iu iis primeval condition.
Fanned  lhu  Discontent
A few restless i-pii-lis, such as are
ever lo he found in all countries, saw
hi the state of affairs an opportunity
for action. They went round iu the
speaking portion of the community

preaching resistance i<> tbe Canadian
government. Every feeling thnt stirs
mankind was appealed to. They were
called upon to he men, and by their
courage to save themselves from having their lands taken from them and
distributed among others, and their
altars from being desecrated. They
were told over nnd over again that
Canada intended to destroy their religion and to overrun their country
with a heretical population who regarded them us an inferior race and
who would ignore their rights.
At the head of the incipient rising
was n man nomed Louis Kiel. He
was horn of French-Canadian parents, who had emigrated to the Red
River; and although he had not a
drop o-f Indian blond in his veins, he
had a largo number of half-breed
relatives and connections, and in order to identify himself as much as
possible with the people he invariably
spoke of himself as a half-breed. He
had boen at a Roman Catholic scliool
in Canada, and at one lime it was
hoped he would have entered the
Church. Instead nf doing so, however, ho becapie a clerk in a shop at
St. Paul, Minnesota, where he resided for a few years, bin was eventually dismissed for dishonesty. His prospects being thus under a cloud, he
returned to the neighborhood of Fort
Garry and lived in tho greatest poverty with his mother. So indigent
were their circumstances that, finding himself succeedim*; in the role of
demagogue, and considering it necessary to be tho possessor of a black
coat, he was obliged to sell bis mother's only cow to procure the money
required for that porpose. Ho was
a man of considerable moral determination, although all who know say
he was wanting in physical courage.

he is a man well prepared for the

Following is a summary of the disposition of tho resolutions which were

of other business transacted:
Report   of   President   and   Advisory
Board  Member,   A.   B.  Smith
In my report for the past year as
president of this District Central of
the Farmers' Institute, I think I am
justified in wnying in advance that
our Central Institute has given our
district good service, and thut the
Advisory Hoard as u whole deserves
well nf the rum I communities of B.C,
Our work at lunt year's conference
was well prepared and expeditiously
carried through—possibly we spread
ourselves mure widely than we
should, but most of our representations got a good hearing at the Board
meeting and wire productive of results or were passed along to bring
results at the next sitting or at the
completion of the routine of parliamentary or departmental procedure
necessary before action cun be had.
I must express my strong impression that at the Board, other things
being equal, a member's ability to
carry through the instructions of his
district is in direct ratio to how fully
his quota of institutes was represented by delegates at his central conven
tion. You have no idea what I
strength  is given   the   member who

from the Board or any department
at Victoria for fuller informati*
fully as my own work would allow;
your wishes as to the summer field
day were carried out, and I think it
was a aucceis—we were favored by
the presence of His Honor Governor
Bruce, who in his new position of
honor shows no sign of having forgotten East Kootenay and his interest in the rural life of the district.
A Useful Work
Our secretary. Mr. Hay, has added
new trophies to the former successes
of our young people at stock judging competitions at tbe Coast, and
this time ths honors have been more
widely spread, reaching into the outlying ends of our district. This in
one line of work that I have hopes
will counteract the drift from the
farm of Bast Kootenay's best crop
and is one the locals should more
strongly get behind. The usefulness
of the agricultural agent is increasing
each year, and more than ever justifies our institutes and our earlier
members on the Advisory Board in
the hard work they gave to procure
such an official here. The sales of
pure bred pigs alone, this last year,
to pig clubs In the districts have given good encouragement to the East
Kootenay clubs, and the sires purchased by the boys and girls have
placed the quality of East Kootenay
Yr-' *' 	
orkshires on a par with any district
in the west.
The quality of dairy stock in the
district Is being distinctly bettered
each year, I know of scarcely a grade
bull In use in this immediate section
or along the route northwards, and
I fee) sure the south and east will
soon be in the same class. We all
know there is not great profit in good
stock, and most of us realize there i«
none at all In poor.
Sheep are proving their worth in a
number of small farm flocks in Columbia particularly. I heard! 'one
man state that he marketed his early
lambs at around $18 per head in August. No comment is necessary as to
that showing something for his labor.
Gettlag Recognition
Our work is today receiving very
gratifying recognition at Victoria.
Your Board is accorded all the opportunity required to place its views
and requests before the standing
committee of the legislature on agriculture. Ministers of the crown readily grant our requests to have members of their staffs attend our sittings
and explain or discuss any or all
questions relative to their departments on which we may he working, and I honestly believe both the
party in office and the opposition are
anxious to assist in our work us much
aa possible.
This recognition on the work we
are trying to do, and the pleasing
notice taken of our presence in the
capital by the Honorable the Speaker
of the House, in providing each member with cards to the gallery and
floor of the legislative chamber, is
evidence of a better footing than at
my first visit in February, 1919,
when, if you interviewed a member,
you had first to give him a history
of the Farmers' Institutes and then
a dissertation on the need, origin
and functions of the Board and a rehearsal of its efforts and hopes.
The institutes are slowly growing
in membership, but there is great
, room for improvement in thc interest
j of members. All the repetition of
; actual results obtained seems ineffectual to get any expression of approval for the past or initiative for new
work in the future from more than
a verv small percentage of those who
are the beneficiaries of all the work
done, and the far greater needing
doing. Can none of us find the reason or suggest the remedy? Surely-
last years report of work was of
enough importance to get more
members to turn out from a list of
twenty to thirty members in three of
the institutes I visited. If they turnout and vented disagreement with
work done, it would at least show
signs of life and interest, but officers,
centrals and Advisory Board are
alike powerless in this lack of interest
ProkUau Are Belag Worked Out
We find that results have justified
us In suggesting that road problems
be handled by thc locals, being shaped
We made the northern trip last
week, and at four out of the fiv
locals, the meetings were alive and
interesting, with a good represents
tion of the membership. I hope I
will be forgiven for forcing afternoon meetings on some of them, but
with work at home set back by bad
weather I could not do otherwise. I
still hope before snow conies to visit
the remaining locals of thfl district,
and hope to get the federal member
of parliament to go to Baynes and
Newgale and discuss with us one or
two local matters in  federal control.
I wish to thank the officers of the
locals for willing help whenever applied to, and trust this conference
will be both pleasant and successful.

up as community requests and placed
in the hands of the Central officers,
to be by them laid before the Public
Works engineer. Both Mr. Brady
and the institutes that have tried this
out are well satisfied with the change
of policy.
The same, 1 feel sure, will result
if we handle our lesser railway requests similarly.
We have one or two Federal matters that were well under way when
the political kettle boiled over last
spring, which are thus delayed, but
will, I have every confidence, be set
tied favorably before long.
There is another Federal matter to
which we might give some attention,
and that is the fact that there are
located in B.C. thirteen agricultural
Illustration stations, or possibly by
this time more, the figures are for
1924. Yet, although different insti
tutions have asked for one, none has
so far been given East Kootenay.
You will again have the question of
fall fairs before you, and I think a
suggestion that Natal, Fernie and
Cranbrook be held closely together
in the order named, and Windermere
also just prior to Cranbrook would
help out in the way of getting better exhibits and making the exhibits
Ki further, and give greater advents-
g to the distriet.
The reports of the various matters
passed on last year have already been
sent to each local in the pamphlet on
agricultural legislation sent out last
winter; any further results will be
given as the questions are reviewed
at this conference.

Resolution No. 4—Elk Prairie Institute—Whereas there is no stock
yard in Natal and there is a lot of
stock shipped to Natal, and shipments
of stock to this station have to he
taken to Michel for unloading, which'
is a great inconvenience, be it therefore resolved that we ask the Advisory Board to submit this matter to
the Central Institute asking for a
means of unloading stock at Natal.
Moved and seconded that motion as
amended be left with Central Institute to toke up with local superintendent ^>f C.P. Railway.
Resolution No. 6—Klk Prairie—
Whereas there has been an act passed
by the B.C. Legislature taxing all
dogs, and a dog is indispensable to
the farmer, and we believe the major portion of the sheep killed by
dogs is done by town dogs, be it
therefore resolved that we submit
that the agriculturist be allowed at
least one stock dog exempt from taxation. This was loft over for some
Resolution No. G—Jaffray—Resolved that farmers be allowed to
obtain free permits from the local
constable for bunting and trapping
on their own property. This was
handed to Game Board.
Advisory Board Secretary
Mr. Whitney Griffiths, secretary of
the Advisory Board of Farmers' Institutes, addressed the meeting on the
matter of co-operation and keeping

resolutions on trapping and game
matters, and that they have power
to add to their committee.
Resolution No. 7—Jaffray—Resolved that the farmers be permitted
to post notices on enclosed privately
owned property prohibiting trapping
and hunting on their property.    This
of the Secretary, Representatives of

Retail Merchants' Association promised support of this idea and it was
carried. It was moved by Mr. Weaver seconded by Mr, Hawkes that
secretary of fair board make arrangements with fairs board secretary at the Coast for such dates.
Resolution No. fl—Baynes Lake.—
Whereas barbed wire left on abandoned property is a distinct menace to
