Nearly Forty Yenrs with the Salvation  Army  and  Hag  Seen
Service In Many Quarters of the Globe.
Commissioner Sowton, tiie first head
of tlio newly created Western Canada
Division of the Halvatlon Army, was
exlendod a cordial welcome to cranbrook at a public mooting In tho
Presbyterian Church Wednesday night,
and delivered an unusually interesting
uddress on his work with the Salvation Army. The chair was occupied
by Uev. W. K. Thomson in tlie absence
uf Mr. Harshaw from the city and with
him on the platform were Hev. T. Key-
worth, Hev. Stevens, Capt. Kerr of
Cranhrook, and Capt, Cox of Fernie.
Tlie Commissioner Is a fluent and
pleasant speaker to whom It Is a
pleasure to listen, and ills experiences
huve been so varied and far-reaching
that he has much to tell.
Commissioner Sowton is a native of
London, England, and has been associated wtth the Salvation Army for
nearly forty years. He has been an
officer for 32 years, and connected with
the administrative work of the organization for the last 1.7 years.
His first foreign experience was In
Norway where he spent four years,
going from there to Denmark, and
then on to Sweden. He also spent
seven years in'the United States in
charge of the Scandinavian work In
that country and was in India for six
or sev 'ii years before coining to Cauada.
j Tbe Halvatlon Army bus branches In
; 60 different countrieu und colonies,
I und recognizes tlie rlgnts of women as
' being equal to men. Woman suffrage,
j said tho Commissioner, has always
been recognized by the Salvation
I Army.
i Commissioner Sowton was sont to
Norway nine months aftor the Salvation Army was first started In that
country and because of the misunderstanding of the objects of the Army
there was much persecution of the
Army officials. It Is known aB the
land of the mid-night sun, and for
three and a half months In the summer the sun never disappears, there
being continuous daylight for the full
twenty-four hours. In the winter it
Is just the opposite, there being continuous darkness for the twenty-four
hours. During his stay ln the Scandinavian countries he mastered their
languages and with his experience tn
India learning the native languages
has become quite a linguist
A vote of thanks was tendered to
Commissioner Sowton at the conclusion of his address.
Nine Recruits Taken on for the  225th  During  the  Week —
Several Well Known Local Men.
Recruiting locally for the 225th has
provided a total of nine recruits during tlie last week. Adjutant Barnes
was here yesterday and stated that
uniforms hod been shipped from Ottawa direct to Ferule, ami should or-
rl%e and be ready for distribution in
two week's timo. The wearing of the
uniforms by those already enlisted
Bhould prove a grea. stimulant to recruiting and will certainly be appreciated by the men themselves, some of
whom have been ull winter in training
without uniforms, having to purchase
their own clothing during that time.
The appointment of the paymaster
of the Battalion lias been made at tlie
military headquarters at the Coast,
and It is expected lie will arrive
.Among the recruits taken on during the week is Alex. Williamson,
book-keeper of the King Lumber Co.,
who will go as   quartermaster   ser
geant. Mr. Williamson has been with
the King Lumber Co. for several years
past In the capacity of travelling
salesman and book-keeper. He enlisted previously with the 54th but owing to an Injury to. hli foot was .rendered unfit for drilling and was granted hla discharge. Another well known
local man ls P. E. Snook, wbo will act
as company tailor. The following are
the recruits taken on the last week:
Alex. Williamson, single, Scotch, bookkeeper.
G. DreBsl, single Italian, lumberman.
John Johnson, single, Canadian, miner
P. E. Snook, married, English .tailor,

Mr. A. U. Smith returned yesterday
from Victoria where he attended tiie
Annual Central Farmers' Institute or
B, C, as a delegate from the local
Fanners' Institute. One feature of the
Convention which appealed to Mr.
Smith was the remarkable absence of
drunkenness among the delegates in
attendance, not one being under the
Influence of liquor during the convention. This is much different to what
it was a few years ago, says Mr. Smith.
Tlie outstanding feature of the convention was the very live interest
evinced by the delegates, and the thorough way in which most of those who
spoke on the various resolutions
brought up had prepared tlieir contribution. Tbe chairman was complimentary enough to say that In this

Text of Address Delivered to Memhers
of Farmers' Institute, March llth,
by A. E. Watts, Wattsburg.
Sir Horace Plunkett and Lord Mont-
eagle were the original promoters of
Irish Agricultural Co-operation which
lias since worked such a wonderful
transformation In the condition of the
Farmers of Ireland. Thc greatest difficulty was to clear the air of suspicion
that some private sinister motive was
behind the scheme. Sir Horace Plunkett held fifty meetings before sufficient Interest was taken to start the
tlrst creamery, and It took two years
before the next was Started.
i Farmers got up at meetings and asked "before we go any further we would
j like to know what Sir Horace Plunkett
is going to get out of the Job?" In
Bplte of vicious attacks the public
spirit of Sir Horace did not waver, tho
| magnificent results of his work be-
1 came apparent, and soon after a na-
; tlonal testimonial ot a substantial
I nature was offered hlm which he asked should be devoted to the purchase
of a large bouse, which became the
headquarters of the "Irish Agricultural Organization Society", now
>known as "Plunkett House" which Is
the centre of co-operation In Ireland.
There are now S34 societies, and since
their organization the total turn-over
has been $123,000,000.00.

asking "If not pleuse let me know
why?" The writer of the letter is nol

Durlug thw bye-election campaigns
Liberal speakers raided such a hullabaloo over the alleged "rottenness"
and "corruption" of tlie present B. C.
government that tor a time they almost made the public believe that
there might be something more in it
than the usual election mud-slinging.

been unearthed? Witli the premier

[Absolutely nothing derogatory to the

light despite the frenzied efforts to
run down the leaBt suspicious clrcum-

that there Is nothing to reveal, that
tlieir slanderous charges were simply
^and solely election nmd-sllnglng with
; absolutely no foundation or basis In
j fact. They seem to have been made
without regard to the claims of honesty, justice or fair pluy and with
| equal disregard of the harm done the

There is only one honorable course
open to the opposition nt Victoria, and
tliat is to withdraw their charges and
apologize for the injustice done. So
Tar they liave shown no inclination to
do tills. Rather they have tried to

them an excuse for not proving their

The house will remain In session till

possible reason for tho collapse of

to be tlie lack nf anything to reveal.

The wedding took place this Thursday, morning of Murray Leo Howard
to Marguerite Agnes Drummond, both
of Cranbrook, the ceremony being performed by Father McGulre after morning service at St. Eugene hospital. On
account of the Lenten scasou, tlie usual festivities were not observed, the
immediate family only being present.
It is against tho custom of the Catholic
Church to celebrate marriages in Lent,
but on account of the groom having
unlisted and wishing to be married before his departure, an exception was
made by Father McGulre, who truly
says that "These are exceptional times
and wo must be governed accordingly."
Wo offer our congratulations to Mr.
ind Mrs. Howard.

a menace us well, It remained for
Kugene Walters, the greatest playwright on tho American continent, to
offer a drama that not only shows tbis
spirit of some wives, hut given ihe
outcome of the Bame ln a truly dramatic manner. The consequences of
extravaganco are ordinarily far reaching in their effects, The average
husband delights ln offering the wife
all he can earn, nnd when that amount
does not satisfy her demnnds, rather
than face her criticisms and banter-

least resistance nnd obtains more money by any methods that come within
his roach. Embezzling, misappropriation of funds, nnd other dishonest
menus ure employed, always with the
hope thnt before his errors are discovered the Impossible will happen
and he can mnke good his lossofl. The
day of reckoning comes and the man's
life Is ruined. Tho worldly blame Is
tils, but the wife, who through foolish
extravagance aud vanity caused his
mistakes, is pitied as being unfortunate In her selection of a crook for a

on the first fly seen, and thc good
work should be consistently and effectively carried on. Tho destruction ot
the early fly will mean thc saving of
valuable lives, as there is no more persistent carrier and distributor of dls-'
case than the house fly.

The report of Chief Adams on the
cost of feeding prisoners for tlie month
makes Interesting rending. During the
month 602 meals were served to prisoners, at an average cost of 10H
cents per meal. Out of that number
of meals served 303 were for Provincial prisoners, which ure charged to
thnt Department at 26 cents per meal,
amounting to $75.75. Therefore, besides getting all the city work done by
all these prisoners our own men have
been ted the whole of tho month free
of cost to the city, ana wtth a balance
of $10.15 to the good. This Is certainly
a most creditable showing.
