His linn was at the front of the

and argumentative rather than

speeches are thoroughly prepared
and tilled with the thought that

and again a story relieves the
weight of tho argument. As a
campaign orator Mr. Borden,
though never brilliant, lias improved in recent years. His audiences '*re impressed by his sincerity and earnestness, as well as
by his courage. His courage was
notably shown in his recent Western tour, when he told the grain-
growers he would continue to

C'ty on Saturday, shortly after 3p.m. j
in iiintnr cars, from Oolden.
To say that tin* commissioners wenb j
delighted with their trip through lhe
Columbia   and    Kootenay     Valleys,
would lie to nil too iiiadeyiiately express their sentiments.   As a matter I
id fact,    the several   commissioners
simply could    not Iiml words strong '
PT.OUgn in which to express their ap- I
preeiation td the beauties of the trip.
A very few minutes after their ar-1
rival, simply taking time to discard
some ot the dust accumulated on Uw
road, the commlsstooprs proceeded i«>
the Government offices, where, in the
court room, proceedings were opened,
There was a very small attendance
of the public, little or nc interest
being taken iu the work of thu commission.

that it was the opinion td the hoand
of trade that it would tie etpiitalt'e
that lho poll tax should lie collected
from those only wlio do not otherwise
contribute to the municipal or provincial treasuries.
Willi regard to the income tax, he
expressed the opinion that the rate
of. exemption should Im- a minimum
of $1500.
In discussing the incidence ot the
personal property tax Mr. Kink contended that unpaid stock in the hands
nf morchands should in- exempted.
Mayor Hunt Was the next witness**:
Mayor Hunt expressed the opinion
that few, if any, were missed In the
collection of tlie poll tux. He favored the exemption* from poll tax of
those who paid other iiiuiiMip.il nnd
provincial taxes. His worship also
commented upon the Inequality or the
incidence of the income tax, particularly with regard to rail way men. lie
favored the extension of the limit of
exemption to either MMM) or 11800.
He did not approve of the exemption
of church property from .taxation, as
this frequently resulted In retarding
the development of cities.
Tl.is expression of opinion caused
some of the commissioners to subject
Mr, Hunt to n pretty close- cross-examination, Mr. Malkin finally scouring from Mr. Hunt a modification of
his original statement. The mayor
intimated that he had no objection to
to the laml actually occupied hy a

property generally being exempted.

Mr. Ouuuigham reviewed the

cd out tlmt 20 years ago when
fruit growing wns lirst undertaken
iu this province on a commercial
basis, it was decided, in order to
prelect tiic country from the dangers ot fruits pests, to establish a
system of inspection of all imported fruits and nursery slock.
The most dangerous pests affecting the fruit growers are conveyed

.Mr. Cunningham intimnttd that
lie bad already certified to the
freedom from fruit pest, and 12
large shipments had been made
from the Okanagan .Harriet. There
is every promise of a large export
trade with Australia, inasmuch as
the season in It. C. is the offseason iu Australia. When they

Mr. Cuutiiiiktlinm went on to
remark tbat it was not only the

records show that 10,235,01 0 tre. s

These figures uive some idea of

known fact iu hortieidture that the
further north apples are grown tli
better their keeping quality is. particularly, if grown without irrigation." .Mr. Cunningham also told
of another branch of liis work,
which includes the inspection of
the rice mills local,,1 in Vancouver
and Victoria, some seven iu num.
"Ground rico is often infected

Mr. Cunningham is responsible
for the proper carrying ont of all
these duties He regretted nol
beingablo to sia-ml more time in
Ibis district on this occasion. He
had intended being lure early iii
September and remaining several
days. Imi otlier duties intervened.
However, at the lirst opportunity
he will return uml devote al least
two treeke to looking over this
iistrict. which bad particularly
impressed him. He bad been at
Creston   for   some time, and   had
en very strongly impressed with
the fruit possibilities of that district. He bad never seen better
fruit, more highly colored and of
letter flavor, than he saw there.
He had devoted all the time be
could simre to the land tributary
to Creston. and he would judge
that there were at least -H'.OOO
seres of land that would grew fruit
without irrigation.
"It is the l>est and most promising horticultural district in
North America, and I except
Referring again to fruit prospects around Cranbrook. Mr Cunningham said he believed there
were some favored spots in the
vicinity where hardy varieties can
lirown wftb safety. However,
he wanted to investigate the facts
personally li-fore expressing any
deeided opinion. Mr. Cunningham remarked thai in his position
it was essential that be should
exerci&e the utmost caution in recommending any partieular section to the attention of intending
fruit growers. Again Mr. Cunningham referred to the strong impression Wanlner distriet bad
made upon his mind and said. "I
shall certainly investigate that
district us soon as opportunity permits."
Whilst it could Ik- wished that
Mr. Cunningham could devote

CRANBROOK, B. C, October 12,1911
ORANBROOK HERALD whole-heartedly to the duties of bis
new olliee. That be will prove successful, tbe Herald does not doubt,
il sincerity id effort make for llial
result. Mr. Burrell is a very line
lype of citizen, a man ot llie
strictest probity, in many respects
much 1 lie same type ol man as bis
Immediate predecessor in the agricultural department. Hon. Sydney
Fisher brought special knowledge lo
licar upon bis work as minister of
agriculture, and devoted himself Unsparingly, and Willi pre-eminent success lo the advancement ol agrieiil-
t.ral interesls throughout the. dominion. Mr. Martin Burrell, wc firmly
believe, will make lor himself un
e.iuallv  honorable record. !
The Humid records wilh very
sincere regret tbe death of lieut-
coluiu'l WoHendon, for ninny
years Kind's printer ut Victoria,
B.OJ Tin* Jute Mr. Wolfenden
was a very lint* type of man, a
faithful and efficient public servant
invariably courteous uml obliging
iu liis relations with the publie.
He will be sincerely mourned by a
wide of role uf friends and acquaintance!, witli whom liis duties
brought lum into eloso contaot.
Newspapermen all over tin* province will be among tboio who
will must deeply regret hisdeiuise.
The colonel wus ever most considerate iu his treatment of the
press gallery.
The session ut tbe Royal Commission on Taxation in this city last
Saturday wns ol no Bpeclal Inter-
est. None of tbe witnesses who testified bud given uny special study
to ibe question ami their ovldcnce
was more or less of ,1 perfunel-oiy
nature. Whilst we do not anticipate
uny direct lienelit tn arise from Uie
session hero of the commission wc
do look for very direct uml Immediate Iteneflts from tbe visit ol
Uu- commissioners pcrsor.ally, among
whom wen* ibe finance minister and
tin* prcsfdenl «•/ (he council. The
ministers were rooking llielr Aral
visit to Crunbrook and they came
in here by ante cars from Oolden, traversing the beautiful Colum-
Iiu and K.ml.nay valleys, en route.
This trip UoiH* was of great educational value to the ministers antl
will undoubtedly prompt them to
generous consideration of tho district in the matter of appropriations for development work in tbo
future. The [act that the editor
of the Victoria Colonist, the chid
government organ, was one of tbe
commissioners, and made the trip
fnmi (iolden with his colleagues,
will also greatly tend to tbe ud
Mintage of ibis section pt the
province. Mr. Liigrin was greatly
Impressed with all be saw ami will,
in the future, Im among the strongest boosters ol South Eastern Hiit
ish Columbia. It was a matter nl
general comment upon the part of
tbc visitors that very little was
known of the aotual scenic charms
and natural advantages of the Columbia and K< otcnay valleys, ur ot
the tlistriet Immediately surrounding C'ranbrooli on ihe coast This Ls
a condition of affairs that tbo visit
ol these gentlemen will go a Ioiik
way towards remedying, as they ure
all well known men, occupying Important positions in the political
ami commercial life of the province
and their reports will Ik* accepted
everywhere without question.

have   la-en  so busily predicting     its

A. E, Uumphreys, of Lethbridge,
Immigration agent, was in town this
week! In course of eonversat Ion
with a representative of the Herald,
Mr. Humphreys commented upon the
apparent |..u-l. nf effort lieing made
by South Kast Kootenay to attrnet
a desirable class of immigrants, now
pouring into the country from England. He said that ne encountered
hundreds of this class, ail having
some means, Irom $1000 to $5000,
men who wished to engage in fruit
growing and other forms of intensive
farming, Mr. Humphreys thinks
ili.it tbe plan t*f sending out literature, confined to descriptions ol
towns and their immediate vicinity,
is ol no practical value in attracting
the best class nf Bottlers. What he
recommends is, fur instance, that
Cranhrook hoard ol trade sltould
send a competent man to Winnipeg
to meet these new-comers upon arrival i lii-re and explain to them the
ail vantages, openings, etc., available
in South Kast Kootenay. A well
informed man, could undoubtedly attract a large number of very desirable settlers tu this -district, were
such  a plan adopted.

Cup    II   the New   York   Clllb  will    ae-
eepl a challenge under Uie "universal" rule adopted by every yacht club
in tho United Suites. Ile will however, never challenge again under the
sixty-year-old conditions to which tho
club bus hitherto persisted iu adbor
Sir Thomas points out lh.it lhe cup
conditions aro now barred by overy
American yacht club, and lhal llu
deed of gift, tunics which the cup is
held, provides for a modi ileal Ion ol
ihe regulations by mutual consent*,
lie maintains thai if Lis challenge
were o-coeptid undei the "universal"
rule America would still have lhe advantage un no boat under this code
has yet been built iu Europe.
•'I        only       ask," he   .says,

Sir Thomas Upton is al present

London Evening Standard; that if
Ins views on Uio subject of a now
challenge arc shared on lhe other
side, negotiations would soon have to
be completed in order to give the necessary lime fur a new yacht to be
built. Ten months' notice Is necessary for a race next year. Former
races have taken place from September to October.
The American universal rule is
practically the same       as
mr       own International     rule,
lint the essentials of the
inle are that it rcstrlctstho dimensions ami the chape of the bout. The
idd rule under which the previous races have been hold does not limit the
si/** ol Ihe boat, save that lhe water
line must not exceed tin feet in length
for cutlers or sloops.
A boat may thus measure till ft. on
the water-line and lull fl. over all,
while is only a very limited penalty
mi huge sail area Sir Thomas wants
a -.ire under the universal rule, because it prohibits the development of
the freak idea, and is calculated ami
intended to produce a more healthy
and seaworthy type of boat. 1'ndcr

be built for the race.

To find out why Madeleine was going to marry Brayshon, and, if she
was doing ii under compulsion, to discover some way of releasing her—
that was brleily the task which Sexton Illake had undertaken, and tho
difficulties In his path caused the
•real man considerable uneasiness.
However, Blako .v,as not it man lo
be easily tl.muted, nml by availing he
had established certain facts, at any
rate, In his own satisfaction.
It wi.s nol i > BttVO u lather or n
broth t i\>. dlBbonori it was nol ihe
usual story 11 at rgory or the staving
off of no Impending ruin that had
caused Madeleine Hoy ton to jilt tlie
man who loved her sn do voted ly al tho
hist moment, Careful .Inquiry among
the servants convinced Blako tbal all
tlio family, servants Included, were astonished at Madeleine's behavior, nnd
considered that she had treatod Kd-
ward Boltlo very badly, ami (hut nobody knew the girl's reasons.
Donald, Blako learned on the following day. was a young man of twenty-'
seven, witb a somewhni lurid past, a
man of ungovernable temper, who had
once been fined lor assaulting a servant. He had plenty of money, and,
apart Irom liis one appearance at the
police-court, there was uotblng serious against him. All the same, ho was
not the son ol' man one would havo
Imagined a beautiful, sweet-naturod
girl like Madolelne to JUt her lover
for tbe eleventh hour. ■
So far, in iwo days out of tlie seven
before the date of the wedding Illake
had drawn blank, and he sat up that
night smoking pipe after pipe In a
vain endeavor to solve the problem of
what the mnn's bold over Madeleine
could possibly he.
In the morning—the third day—as
Donald Brayshon came jauntily down
the steps of his lown house, be was
very much annoyed with a certain
well-dressed stranger who cannoned
lulu bin) lu the clumsiest manner, ami
sent his silk hat rolling Into ihe gutter.
The well-dressed stranger was full
of apologies, antl listened meekly io
Brayshon's revillugs.
"1 wus lost tn ii reverie. Do forgive
me, sir! It wns foolish of me, I know,
but pray overlook It!" the well-dressed Btranger said humbly.
Brayshon cooled down a little and
began to walk on. but the well-dressed
stranger kept by his side, still murmuring apologies anil refusing to he
shaken off. Gradually and skilfully
iie Introduced otlier subjects, till Brayshon, thawed and Interested, found
himself at last exchanging cards with
liis new friend.
"I insist," said tlie arranger effusively .whose card proclaimed him to
bo Sampson P, Vnno. "I Insist thai
you lunch with me to-morrow, sir.
Your conversation interesls mo, and
I want to force you us my guest to
forget the extremely annoying way iu
which I made your acquaintance."
"Very well," said Brayshon. "I
shall be delighted! We seem to have
a great deal lu common.!"
They parted, nnd Sampson P. Vnue
returned to Baker Street, doffed his
disguise, and, as plane Sexton Blake,
drove to an address iu Hurley Street.
The specialist gazed nt hlm in
amused astonishment as he explained
bis desire.
"My dear Blake," he exclaimed,
"what next?"
"I count upon you, Sir James," returned the detective coolly. "Don't
forget your promise over that Kller-
sham affair—that If ever you could
be of service to me, you would."
"But, Blake—to dress up as a waiter
and actually wait upon you and another man at lunch, and what is more,
to find a colleague who would also
dress up as a waiter—my dear chap,
I can't!"
"You must!" said Blake.
"But 1 don't know how to 'wait.'
We should give ourselves away."
"Mtat you. All you Will have to do
will be to put things on end lake them
off. I will arrange with the manager
or the restaurant to have them all
brought by a proper waller to the
door, ll will be quite simple—Just
think of how you have seen other
waiters behuve."
And, taking his victim's consent for
granted. Sexton Blnke promptly retired.
"Cheek!" muttered Sir James.
"But I suppose 1 shall have to do It,
aud it will he a lark!"
Blake, meanwhile, had gone to
Duiile's hotel.
"You musi n't ask questions," he
said. "And you must give me your
word to leave everything to inc. I
am lunching with Brayshon at the
Bingwood Restaurant to-morrow, and
you can sit behind a screen and listen
—If you nre sure you can control yourself, and will undertake not to make
a sound till I give you leave."
Boitle promised, and Blako went off
to Interview tht manager of the res-
"Don't ibink much of lhe Walters
here," muttered Brnyshon discontentedly. "But the cooking's good, I will
say that!"
"First-ClassI" agreed Sampson P,'
"That clumsy brute—the older one
of the two has already dropped two
plates," exclaimed Brnyshon, "besides spilling some soup ou my shoulder."
"Never mind the waiters, old chap,"
said Sampson P. Vane, soothingly,

"I said the only way to rulo a woman was lo terrify her!" exclaimed
Brayshon, Inking thu bait.
"Yes—but how?" murmured Blake.
