A" very largely attended meeting of
the Cranbrook Board of Trade was
held In the Cranbrook Hotel on Tuesday evening last to protest against the
published report that the 225th Battalion would be concentrated at Vernon
for training purposes. As it was understood that Captain Ritchie, as a
result of his recent visit to Cranbrook
and Inspection of the suitable site, had
reported in favor of establishing the
training camp for this Battalion here,
it was felt that this proposition was
distinctly unfair to Cranbrook. and
that tho presence In Uie city of Col.
McKay afforded nn excellent opportunity of ghlnt* the military authorities an unbiassed account (if the feelings of Cranbrook citizens on this
matter, Colonel MucKay being present
at thc meeting.
The general dissatisfaction of the
city at the proposed treatment of the
226th Battalion was ably voiced by
Bcveral of the leading business men.
It was pointed out that in order to
secure ,the greatest possible stimulation for recruiting ft wan necessary
thai the men Bhould be concentrated
nt some point easily accessible to
their friends and relations so (hat It
would not be unduly expensive to.
visit them In their (mining quarters,
nnd that whereas by concentrating at
Cranhrook It would entail only a com-
parntlvely small expanse to reach
them from any point In the Kbotenaya,
111 the event of Vernon being selected
It would cost anything from |SD to $70
to do this.
captnln Ritchie on his recent visit
hnd expressed tlie opinion that had the
authorities been aware thut si.eh an
ideal npot was available for a concentration tamp when ihey selected Vernon lust year, not one battalion only
bul two or throe brigades would have
been located here lu addition, the
D.O.C., Colonel Duff Btowart, wus
strongly opposed to giving the tlQCOflr
sury preliminary training In lurge concentration camps such as Valcartler
beforo sending the recruits oversells,
and greatly In favor of training lu battalions at selected pOttttB, believing
that this favored better discipline and
equally as satisfactory if not hotter
results, and was furthermore strongly
in favor of Cranbrook aa the concentration point for the 225th Battalion.
Col. MacKay was himself heartily in
favor of Cranbrook for this purpose.
It was a case of either Cranbrook or
Vernon as the concentration point.
With these remarks Colonel MacKay
signified his hearty accord.
It was further pointed out that the
members of the Provincial Legislature
who represented the Kootenay district
I had sent telegrams to Ottawa, protest* j
i lng against the establishment of a concentration camp at Vernon, and that
| a majority of the nine Kootenay members had specially mentioned Cran-
| brook as the most suitable concentration camp.
I After further discussion a committee
f of three composed of Mr. W. A. Nisbet,
\ President or the Board ot Trade, and
; Messrs. A. C. Bowness and W. B. Mc*
i Farlane was appointed to draft a res-
j olutlon to the Secretary of the Militia
I Council, and Colonel Duff Stewart, D.
jO.C,, protesting against the proposed
| concentration at Vernon. The follow-
: lng telegram was drafted and sent by
|that Committee: "At a largely attended meeting of tho Cranbrook
Hoard of Trade and citizens, a unanimous resolution was passed protesting against the concentration of the
.?-!;i!ii Battalion at any point outside
lot the Kootenay district. The officer
I commanding thc Battalion spent the
I day in Cranhrook, and after inspection
I of grounds nnd location In general ap-
' proves of Cranbrook as the concentration point for the 22Kt!i nuttallon."
lt was further moved that a commit-
toe, composed of Messrs. A. C. Bow-
■ness, \V. B. McFarlane. A. B. Macdonald. and Mayor Clapp should visit Fernie with n view to securing thc cooperation of the Fernie cltlsens In having tho 225th Battalion retained In the
Kootenays Tor training purposes.
In reply to a hearty vote of thanks
for attending the meeting and listening so attentively to the arguments
: put forth, Colonel McKay said that he
had vory pleasant recollections of the
{way Cranhrook citizens had treated
hlm in the past, and that on this visit
he did not find their Interest and good

Kootenay Institutes,
Thc regular monthly mooting of tlw
Craubrook Farmers' Institute was held |
in the City Hull on Saturday last at
2.30 p.m. President It. Palmer wns In
the chair; and thoro was an attendance of eleven members, which, considering thut tho beautiful weather
kept ttie members out nt work ou their
farms was not nt ull had,
The minutes of the iust regular
monthly meeting wore read aud adopted, the correspondence rend and ordered filed.
It was decided to enter tills yoar for
Field Crop Competitions In Oats and
Potatoes, those entering lo pay an entrance fee of $1.
Mr. A. B. Smith then gave a brief
but Interesting account of the Annua!
Convention of Farmers' Institutes at
Victoria, which he attended as delegate of the Cranbroo-K and Marysville
Farmers' Institutes.
In the course of his report Mr. Smith
said that the Convention was held in
the Convention Hall of the Empress
Hotel, Victoria, something over a
hundred delegates being present. The
discussions were very live, and the
biggest trouble the Chairman had wus
In keeping members from interrupting
ono another, and in recognizing who
had the floor first.
While at Victoria, the delegates from
the East and West Kootenays held an
Informal meeting, proposing some united action from that district on local
matters prior to the next annual convention. It was decided to appoint a
convenor and to gather as many delegate* aB possible at preferably thc Nelson Fall Fair. Mr. Jamlesou of the
South Slocan Institute was appointed
convenor and will communicate with
the different Institutes beforo long. In
a private letter to him, Mr. Jamleson
had expressed tho opinion that pos-
slbly all tho Institutes of the East
Kootenay could more usefully meet
separately, aB they have stock, range
and water questions to solve In which
Uie West Kootenay institutes are not
greatly interested. Mr, Mitchell, the
delegate from Golden, proposes an
Eaat Kootenay sub-convention at Invermere Fair next Fall, and Mr. Smith
thought It a good Idea and one worth
following up later on. He expected to
see Mr. Mitchell next week, and would
express to him any sentiments the
meeting might advise.
The following resolution was then
carried: That the Craabrook Farmer's
Institute la heartily in sympathy with
this suggestion, and la willing to cooperate with the other East Kootenay
Institutes in arranging for a Convention of these Institutes.
It was resolved to asit the Craubrook
Board of Trade to co-operate In a request to thc City Council to erect a
public watering place In a convenient
position ln the City, at the same time
bring forward the matter of erecting
a suitable shelter tot teams entering
the city.
It waa also decided that the regular
May meeting should b« postponed, and
that the June meeting should be held
at 7.30 p.m.
The meeting then adjourned.

"Forgetful of past wrongs, heedless
ot her diminished population, but hateful of oppression and keen for liberty.
Ireland dashed into the foremost of thc

The Editor, Cranbrook Herald, ■
Dtar Sir:—May I be -tllowed to
make a few remarks about-tbe letter
written by "John Cranbrook" and published In your last Issue.
John Cranbrook seems to think that
nothing   Is   being  done   to   prevent
drinking among recraits.    The   men
! ln power at this recruiting office are
| doing all they can and by the best
means too. and that ls on the "give and
! uke system".   It Is all very well for a
j civilian to talk about discipline, discipline all the time, but until uniforms
urn Issued and proper barracks, witb
i guard rooms, etc., orgunlaed, it Ib a
1 very difficult matter lo break men Into
proper military, red tape routine, us
laid down by the Uovcrnnient Regulations.
If Johu cruulirook knew the men
i personally, and could sec for himself
I the known "hard cases" amongst the
! recruits, uud could hear what these
men have to suy for themselves—how
sorry they ure for again "falling by
the way side", he would not try and
roust the men that are In power here.
No, sir! It Is very, very hard for a
man who has worked In thc bush all
his life to be brought into barraoks
and made to stay here after his cheque
blown In. At his old life he would
have gone back to the bush and work-
ed again, but now hc must stay and
has got to fight the old failing, which
all of them are doing to their utmost.
Remember, "Rome was not built In a
day" and the longer It takes to build
anything, the better it Is In the end.
Another thing, the citizens of Cranbrook liave not bees, anoyed in one
single instance by these wild boys,
and It is not such a disgrace as one
may think to have been sent down to
the city Jail, that being done simply
because there was not an adequate
guard room at the disposal'of the military authorities whe;e nlllarlous men
could be confined.
Yes sir, John Cranbrook, and men
liko him, must mike allowances for
recruits who have hitherto always
been free agents, and who now are
brought into contact with a stronger
force than themselves, and a force,
which ln due time will make as fine a
body of men as have ever left the district.

The following editorial Ih reprinted
from the Medicine Hat News, hut is
equally applicable to Cranhrook merchants, a number of whom use stationery printed In the East when they
could get the same article from either
of the local printing offices. Tlie News
"Four accounts rendered to The
News through tills morning's mall by
local mercantile firms, were carried
on stationery which whs printed In
Toronto. Mr. Merchant, do you think
that Is doing Uie fair thing by the city,
to which you nre looking for support.
Do you think It Ih doing the fair thing
by the newspapers, who are constantly
urging upon the public tlie necessity
of buying at home? Is it doing the fair
thing by tho newspapers which con-
llstontly refuse to nccept advertising
matter from out-of-town departmental
stores, in order thnt the local mercantile tabrlc may be established nn a
sound basis?
"The merchants have it within their
power to so seriously cripple the local
printing offices, financially, as to drive
them to the wall, forcing sixty or seventy men to leave thc city with their
families and seek occupation elsewhere. A policy of this nature would
certainly linvp a reactionary effect upon the city's prosperity and the merchants would suffer 1n common with
others who are dependent upon the
city's growth for a livelihood.
"We In Medicine Hat must stand together or wc will inevitably together
"The News would nsk the merchants
to give their very serious consideration
to this matter of sending their orders
for stationery to out-of-town firms."

Tho Press opinions of Paris, Brussels. Berlin and Vienna, Moscow, Pet-
rograd, Sydney aud Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington, Cape Town and
Johannesburg, Bombay and Calcutta
are unanimous In declaring the great
genius possessed by these Russian artists.
* The Chernlavskys have visited most
countries, giving concerts all the while
and heaping upon themselves the golden opinion of half- the musical population of the globe. From 1900 to
1903 they toured throughout the length
and breadth of their native land —
Russia. 1906 saw them in Vienna
while 1906-7 were devoted to London
and English Provinces. In 1908 thoy
undertook their first South African
and Australian tours under Edward
Branscombe's management, visiting
the former country a second und third
time In 1909 and 1911. They toured all
through India and the Far East in
1912, and again ln 1913 and 1914,
reaching New Zealand for their return
visit at Easter, 1914, being back in
Australia in June the some year.
Born In South AusHla, not far from
the Crimea, of parents who could not
afford to pamper them, they did not
fin a bed of roses in tho beginning of
their lives as concert artists, but they
were not long in obtaining recognition
from the public, which indeed came to
them at the age when most children
are at the kindergarten.

have signified their Intention of entering the Boys' and Girls' Poultry
Competition have now got their hens
sitting and are anxiously awaiting results. Twenty-one days seems all
too long to them to wait for the arrival of their chickens. Some of them
spend most of their spare time watching "Biddy" to see that she keeps right
on -her job.
Mr. BaHsett has received a letter
from Mr. W. H. McDonald, Superintendent of Boys' and Grils' Junior
Institutions stating that though in order to compete for the Government
prizes lt was decided that those entering should all raise the same breed
of chicks, he has decided to allow the
members of the Cranbrook Poultry
Competition to use different breeds of
Poultry, and therefore those who have
entered this Competition will be eligible for the District and Provincial
prizes offered by the Oovernment. This
should encourage the boys and girls
to take Htlll further care of the chicks
that hatch out.
Those who have entered will be supplied a little later on by Mr. Bassett
with small packets of Giant Sunflower,
Dwarf Essex Rape, and Thousand
Headed Kale Seeds, to be planted tor

I suffered with an abscess on my
face," writes Mrs. Herbert Coi, ot
Port McNIcbol, Ont. "I tried everything and received medical treat-
meut for some time, but ln vatn.
Flnallv the doctor advised an operation, which was performed, but instead of Improving, the sore became
worse. I had despaired of ever finding a cure, when t friend recommended Zam-Buk. I tried it, with
the result that before long the poison was drawn out and the sore began te heal. Perseverance effected
a complete cure, and now not even
a scar remains."
Zam-Buk ls equally good for

bolls piles, burns, cuts, and all
akin injuries. All druggists, 50e.

Mr. Wulklntown arrived here last
week, looking around he thought with
all the hustle and bustle of our camp
he would take a quiet rest by the lakeside. To his delight he found a hollow
log the right size to crawl in and have
a needed sleep. When he awoke he
found to his horror the water had
come up nnd the log had swollen so
he could not get out. Naturally his
past came to his mind and with a sore
heart he remembered he had voted
against prohibition. It made him feel
so small he had no difficulty ln crawling out. Now he Is going to be government man, repair bridges, cut down
trcen. improve the roads, etc.
Invermere, B.C., April 10.—One more
of the old timers of the Windermere
district passed away on Saturday at
Wilmer ln the person of James Votter.
The late Mr. Votier was born many
years ago in Montreal and was of thc
French-Hugeno extraction. Hearing
the call of the West he went to California for the gold boom of forty nine
and from there followed the lure thru
the Cariboo ln the fifty-nine rush; ho
also took part in the famous Wild
Horse excitement of sixty four and in
the early eighties of the last century
settled In Calgary. From there he
came to this part where hc has ever
since resided. He was a member
of the Bow River Lodge of Calgary
Masons and as such received the last
honors of u Mason by being accorded
a ceremonial burial yesterday.
On Friday next Mrs. Oeorge A.
Starke gives a military euchre party
commencing at seven thirty in tho
evening. A small charge will be made
the players, the proceeds of which will
go towards some one or other of tho
public benefits which the citizens of
the district are supporting.
More and still more are leaving this
district to serve for King and Empire
In the Great War. Amongst the last
to depart are Captain Gerald Houl-
grave, R.N.R., who left to-day for the
Old Country taking his wife and child
with him.  Captain Houlgrave has bee„
rancher ln here coming from the
Old Country about four years ago
Prior to coming to this part he had
served fn the Merchant Marine and
was at one time fifth officer on board
the Lusltanla. He also has seen service In charge of a gun boat on Lake
Victoria Nyanza In Central Africa. As
the time of his return Is In doubt he
has made a disposition of many of his
belongings but still retains his Interests ln his farming property.
Still another ls a Mr. De Costa, a
gentleman of Portugese extraction
who has seen life In different parts of
the world, and a third Is William Per-
rlsh a full blooded Shuswap Indian
from the near by reserve and leaves
behind him a squaw with his children.
The second annual meeting of the
Invermere Golf and Country Club was
held on the evening of last Friday
when the reports for the past year
were presented and tbe election of officers for 1916 was gone through with.
The reports show the club to be In
good condition and from the money
collected for membership fees and
promises of contributions the outlook
for 1916 Is certainly very bright.
The nominations and elections which
took place are for honorary president,
Captain A. H. MacCarthy, and R. Randolph Bruce, C.E., F.R.G.S.; for president, Mr. George A. Starke; vice-president. C. E. Parham and A. 0. Cuthbert; secretary-treasurer, Alexander

Parham, Cleland and MacKinnon. The
club's course Is one of nine holes situated on Canterbury Point, overlooking Lake Windermere. It 1b of nine
holes with many natural obstacles and
by expert players Is considered a
splendid court. At least two tournaments arc to take place this year, the
opening one being for Easter week.
The second one wlll take place later
and It Is hoped will be in tor-provincial embracing players from Banff,
Calgary and Winnipeg as well as such
points within the Province as Cranbrook and Golden.

before this tragic conflict is over, but not one of us doubts the issue,
and Canadians wilt do their duty in the highest sense of that great

MODERN war is made by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, as .
well as by men and by munitions. While war U our first business, it is the imperative duty of every man In Canada to produce all
