Board of Trade
Annual Meeting Receives Reports and Elects Officers
for Coming Vear
Whllo lt ls true that there wero not
nearly aa many present on Tuesday
evening at the annual meeting of tho
Cranbrook Board of Trade, held at the
city hull, as a year ago, It Is safe to
say that the reason was on account of
tbo numerous other diversions on foot
Just al this time, rattier than a lug*
glni! Interest In lho work ol the board.
Bvon though lho two dozen or so who
woro present did make a very representative gathering, tho fewness of
their numbers was somewhat dlsap*
j .liullng.
The chlof business to come before
the meeting wus the reports of committees, tho president's report for tho
past year and the secretary's report,
.ii.il.ed Into further.
Among tho committees reporting
were the mining, agriculture, tourist
and publicity and roads. Mr. O. J.
Spreull, for the mining committee, urged among other things that atepa be
.alien to get the most representative
m nernl exhibit together for the mining convention to be held at Nelaon
this year, and also that the matter ot
getting the display building erected
at the station be taken up wltb tbe
-n- er officials of the C.P.R. and others -'nterested, who might be able to
a] eed up some action on this project,
so tlxt a proper display of mineral
rmp'es might be housed tliere along
other exhibits of a district nature.

The meeting held on Wednesday evening of this week at the Auditorium
ln support of Dr. King was one of the
briefest meetings of its kind ever held
In the city. Its object seemingly was
to urge the wisdom of an acelama-
for Dr. King upon the electorate, but
seeing that at tlie name time almost
another meeting was busy naming a
candidate to contest tiie election in
the Progressive interests, it is felt
the meeting at the Auditorium might
w«H have broadened out a little, and
made use of the opium unity the good
sized audience provided to set forth
a few matters of policy.
Dr. P. W. Green acted as chairman
for the evening, and with him as the
speaker*, of the evening, in addition
to Dr. Kii.g, were Messrs. J. P. Pink,

Dr. King spoke very briefly, explaining his brevity by stating that

there would be an election He stated that he felt his position to be a
somewhat unusual one, and explained

From the constant reiteration one hears from the platform and on the street corner
that it would be "good business" from all angles to allow
Um Impending by-election in
this riding lo go by acclamation, it might be inferred that'
the Progressive party, in offering opposition to Dr. King, is
laying itself open to the charge
that it is not. acting in the beftt
interests of the riding. In all
all fairness to them, however,
and without commendation or
condemnation of .what thc Progressives might stand for, It
should be recognized that ihey
are but following (ha Uvn'"^
po'icy of fner ryirhp ..t-aniza
tion which is to build up as
strong a parliamentary repre-
seniation us possible and from
whatever quarter the opportun
ity offers. Their showing at
the election last December certainly seems to indicate that
their entry into the field again
must needs be taken seriously,
and lacking as they admittedly
do, the resources both in means
and men of the platform type,
it is apparent that their motive
in contesting the election is
one of principle as well as opportunist.
Their position, it would seem
in brief, is that they feel that
the coming of Dr. King into the
riding, with its attendant circumstances, aiid involving the
elimination of the properly elected representative from the
scene, should be-subject to ratification by tho people. Thc Liberal majority' was so small,
they point out, and the atmosphere of the election was Buch
that they express doubt whether Dr. King himSelf Would have
met with the success that the
Liberal candidate did.
Neither do the Progressives
admit, it is apparent, that the
possible benefits' the district
might receive from representation by the minister of public
works, should overrule all other
considerations, Patriotic citizens will object to money being spent in the riding for public works that are not necessary, and it is hard to believe
that if the expenditure of public
money is really necessary in
East Kootenay, it will be withheld if the minister is not returned.
In short, the Progressives
are simply following in the by-
election here their policy of no
compromise with the. Liberal
government. They .refused to
enter into a coalition arrangement which would hnfve given
them cabinet representation;
they opposed the return of Hon.
Arthur Meighen, when the majority In December was more
adverse than here; In Alberta

A new departure in Canadian Pacific activities during this winter haa
been the inauguration of winter
cruises to the West Indies and the
commencement of a regular service
to Havana and Kingston. Jamaica.
There'ia considerable trade between
j the Island of the Carrlbean ond Can-
-Ada, particularly In sugar and tobacco, and the fact that so many of
these islands are part of the British
Empire makes this closer steamship
connection with Canada all the more
The "Empress of Britain," which
left New York on her first cruise de
luxe to the West Indies on January
21st, will mnke her second on February 21st and ia already well booked.
The ports of call include Havana,
Cuba; Kingston, Jamaica; Colon,
Panama; La Guayra, Venezuela;
Port of Spain. Trinidad; La Brea
Point, Trinidad; Barbados; Fort de
France, Martinique! St Pierre, Martinique; St. * Th«ma? San Juan,

turning to New York. There will
be excursions ashore st the various
porta, conducted by representatives
of the Canadian Pacific, which will
give unusun! opportunities for seeing points of interest during the 27
days   of   each cruise.         .   ._.
The '"Empress of Britain" was
selected for these cruises by reason
of the fact that she is not only a
luxurious ocean liner of the most
modern type, but the largest steamship making the West Indian cruises,

hat these producers should be expected to comfort themselves by recoiled Ing the period of high prices which
(receded the collapse is an Idlo question. . . The interest of the rail-
vays lies in helping to win back prosperity, rather than In holding Inquests
m tho past. But Insofar as produces blanjo their present difficulties on
he railways of Canada, there can on-
y be one reply: Tho Canadian rail-
vays are serving the Canadian public
iheaper than any other railways in

.apltallzatton is lower per mile oi
line than in any other country. Their
peratlon is at least us efllcient and
'heir not earnings— taking the case
i f even the most prosperous of thc
lines—are lower than the net earnings
if a first mortgage, a victory bond or
money Invested in a successful retail
shop. Therefore until the collapse
of prices makes itself further fell In
the cost of railway supplies and until
railway wages can be made to reflect
changed conditions, the railways must
vigorously resist nny demand for general rate reduction whether it comes
n the form of an application for so-
called "equalization" of rates, or in
■.my other way. Of course Iliis does
not mean that the rate fabric is to
remain rigid. Special adjustments
lownward are continually being
made. Tliis refers only to general reductions-
"Take the case of the Canadian Pacific Railway, without counting its
BUpsfdlary companies it represents not
merely an investment of six hundred
add millions of bonds and debentures."
That sum could not possibly have
created the road as it is today. It
represents SS9-l.so7.7W actual cash investment.
"In other words, just as some of our
banks are able to pay their dividends
by adding tho earnings of their reserve funds, acquired by previous ec-
uomy lo the earnings of tlieir capital proper, bo the Canadian Pacific
Railway's funds available for dividends and fixed charges are drawn
from the earnings of money saved
and reinvested in the property years
ago as well as from the company's
capital. If the total not earnings of
the C.P.R. In 1921 had to be applied
-o dividends and Interests ou the actual cash investment In the road, that
Is on SS9-1.S07.711 instead of $1.00,-

that such reasonable surplus would

the Canadian Pacific Railway Company shows a very serious departure
from tlte observance of this common
rule of business prudence. The total
actual cash luvi-slment in the Can ml

1917 was $814,898,896 on which the

Alio Editor of tjhe Herald,
The Editor of the Herald,
1 beg to request a limited space iu
your valuable 'paper in which to
iiiuko a few remarks with regard to
tlie confirmation lu office by East
Kootenay of Live Hou. Dr. King, recently appointed Minister of Public
Works for the Dominion of Canada by
our Premier, tlie Rt- Hon. Mackenzie
Alio Prime Minister hug obtaned a
strong Cabinet by nelectlng, as min-
iaters of tlie various portfolios, men
who liavo given convnclng proof of
their ability by tlie able dlnchargo of
their duties of tho offices which they
formerly hold. Mr. King, has also endeavored to muko the Cabinet fully
rcpreiientatlvo of the wholo Dominion
by Meeting, whenever iiosBlble. a
minister from each province.
There are two reasons preeminent
among many others which muko the
unanimous ratification by this constituency of the Premier's cholca of
Hon. Dr. King aa Minister of Public
Works In tho federal government a
most desirable thing. These reasons
1. Dr. King has given proof by ths
eminently creditable way in which,
through a most critical period, he has
discharged the duties of the Department of Public Works ln the provin-
cal parliament, that he possesses abilities commensurate wth the great requirements of the Federal Department
or Futile Works.
2. Though I.i f::-j performance of
his duties the federal Minister ot
Public Works must, of course, be entirely Impartial. Nevertheless ths
appointment of Dr, King of British
Columbia as Minister of Public Works
for the entire Dominion is an honor
to western Canada, and a distinct advantage and contribution, to Its material prosperity. Prominent members
of otlier partlea, speaking from purely
business and personal unselfish motives, have advised the election of Dr.
King by acclamation. Why? Because
they realize that, being an able man
and keenly Interested in the welfare
bt British Columbia and the Kootenay
district, he will be ln a position to do
much for our province, city end district to materially enhance their position as Integral parts of our greet
Dominion. The completion of the
Banff-Windermere auto highway, telephone lines controlled by the federal
government, the direction of emigration from the British Isles Into
British Columbia, etc, are all enterprises highly conducive to the prosperity of the country, and in which
Dr. King would doubtless be In a
position to render great services.
In his big-hearted devotion to the
highest interests of his country and
his constituents, our elected representative, Mr. R. E. Beattie, has willingly
resigned his seat in favor of Dr. King.
The Cranbrook Board of Trade, notwithstanding Ithe different! political
alii.Millions of its members, because of
its deep interest in the progress of
our city and district advocates the
clecton  of Dr  .King by acclamation.
Many large and powerful groups
of public opinion and many well
known persons differing politically
from Dr. King are in favor of he. elec-

gard for boards ot trades, embracing
tts they did members of ull ]>oliiical
Ideas, and he always desired lo co-operate with them to get a better opin-
iou as tu what Is desired iu the public Interest. He thought boards generally readized tlieir responsibil.-
tie» more than a few -years ago. Dr.
King also referred briefly to his position aa a candidate now before the
electorate, and his connection with
tlie dlstrct, extending over the past
twenty-four or twenty-five years. As
to the Banff-Windermere road, lie Was
at all times In favor of furthering thia
project, and advised its early completion. He realized It meant u great
deal to this district, and he urged thc
people of Crdtibrook to keep up their
representations to the authorities on
the question.
Asked as to tlie status of the Wasu
road diversion, Dr. King stated tlmt.
three surveys are completed of alternative routes, and the matter was now
In the hands of the provincial government to decide. PerBonully he agreed that tho road should go up the
west side of the river, looking Into the
future at tlie possible development of
the Canal Flats section.
■At the conclusion'of his brief address Dr. King was formally congrat-

Invermere, Feb. 22.—The members
of thje Windermere District Farmery
Institute and Agricultural Association
assembled in general meeting on Saturday laBt and tore things up and
stated to rebuild the fabric once
more. It was felt that the organization had not of late been as beneficial as It might bo to those engaged
in agriculture. Onee determination
arrived at Is to have monthly meetings if at all possible at which there
will be social Intercourse and papers
or debates on subjects bearing on
c untry life. The first of these Is to
be held on Saturday the eighteenth of
March when Mr. Joseph Heath, the
well known garden, root and flower expert will give a paper on "The
P lato." This will be followed by
an address on the same subject by
Mr. R, Gladwyn Newton, B.S.A., Su-1
perintendent of the Dominion Government Experimental Station for East
Kootenay. The serving of light refreshments will close the day's proceedings.
Mr. R. Gladwyn Newton, having declined re-election. Mr. A. O, Cuthbert was appointed president of the
organization with Basil G. Hamilton,
secretary, vice Dr. P. W. Turnor, resigned.
Rev. Father Lambot, of St. Eugene
Mission, Craabrook, has been confined to the local general hospital here

political Issues before the electorate-
It is simply a question of whether
we wish to advance the best Interests
ot our district, of British Columbia,
and of Western Canada by ratifying
the expressed choice of tlie Prime
Minister, a man most worthy of support nnd most capable of performing
efficiently the duties of his office; or
to retard the progress of our section
of Canada by depriving it of the honor, the advantage, and the privilege
of supplyng a minister of the Crown
and of representation in the federal
The contestng of the election by
either Conservatives or Progressives
would, in my opinion, be futile, even
1f successful (which fs most unlikely
Judging by the sentiment of the people) ; for a Mberal government Is
in power nt Ottawa, and* lt is only
reasonable to assume that a Conservative or Progressive representative
coud not hope to do as much'for our
dltJtrlct nn a Liberal representative
who would also be ln charge of that
extremely Important portfolio—the
portfolio of Public Works for the Dominion.
Therefore, let us, with ony the welfare of our country and district at
heart, cast aside party considerations,
and confirm ttie Hon. Dr- King the
•election of our Premier, on February
28th, by acclamation.
Thanking you very much, Mr. Editor, for this space, I beg to remain,
Very truly yours,
uluted by Mr. Fink, aa president ofj
the board, uron his elevation to dom-
Ininn cabinet rank.
Under tlie head of now business,!
.Mr. F. J. Gulmont, who had been acting at secretary pro tern since tho
early jart of the meeting, asked the
support ol tlie board of Trade iu a
movement -*-*■» -Hod and .*-.. u Club were
putthiy on foot to have a hatci.ery established In the district for the pro-
pagatlon at the native of cut-throat
trout, lt was slated tiiat there were,
good prospects for netting this put
through, since tlie cost involved was,
not largo, aud the Rod and Cun Club
itself had on hand a good deal of tho .
material required.
Incidentally Mr. Guimont pointed,
out that in tl'e last five years the club
had placed upwards uf a million fish
In the waters of the district, and ■
spent upwards of a thousand dollars,
in tlu.' work, thc bulk of which had j
fallen upon a few.
By a resolution supported by Mes-,
»rs* Lille and Wilson, lho board of j
trado went on rehord bahkfng up the
reuest of tho Rod and (Jim Club to secure tlie hatchery.
The election of officers for the new
year  resulted  as  follows:
President   J. P. Fink
Vice-President   W. it. Grubbe
Executive  W. E. Worden, M. A.
Beale, F. M, MacPherson,
A. Graham, G. J. Spreull,
C. J. Little J. H. McQuaid,.
A. Raworth. !
Auditor       E,  Paterson j
The secretary-treasurer and the
heads of committees are appointed by
.the executive.
In connection with plans for the
coming season, it is hoped to get
a somewhat larger and more representative membership for the board,
and tho suggestion was advanced that
by indulging a little more In the social aspect of things, a larger attendance at the meetings might be secured, and by means of internal banquets
or luncheons interest in the work of
the board might also be stimulated.
Mr. Spreull drew attention to the
fact thnt. the postponed meeting of the
Associated Hoards for South - East
Kootenay would probably he held in
this city ftoiiic time in April, when the
city would have a good opportunity to
display Its  hospitality,
The reports submitted by the pres-
dent and secretary-treasurer respectively, were as follows:
Cranbrook,  B.C.
Feb. 21st, 1922.
To the Members of the
Cranbrook Board of Trade. '
Gentlemen: I bog to submit my
report for the year just drawing to a
close. It Is my,duty as president to
give you some details of the work
handled by tills board during the past
year. On account of the conditions
which existed throughout the world
during the past year, not nearly as
much good resulted from our efforts
as we would have liked.
However, I believe that a foundation was laid for good results this
coming year particularly in publicity.
A tourist Information bureau was
maintained from Mny 15th to October
and during th»t time 278 parties registered at the office. These parties
contained 78u persons to whom maps
and information were given. I
283 parties used onr free camping
grounds from April to November, the
number per montii being as follows:
April 2. May 10. June 26, July 82, i
August 107, September 27, October 27,
and November 2.
During August there was an aver-'
age of almost four parties each night
on the grounds and I have seen as
many as twelve cars tliere at one
time.   Tliis brings up the question of
enlarging Uie grounds In order to handle the very rapidly growing tourist
A largo number of Inquiries were
received from prospective settlers to
whom luforuiatioit was supplied, and
in this connection 1 would suggest to
tht executive that new Information be
gathered uiid put into mmpljlt;. form
ready for distribution at the opening
of the season; I would also suggest
that further efforts be made to complete the irrigation schemes which we
huve had iu hand for some time, Tliis
will he necessary before we can reasonably a.sk or expect settlers to go
on the land.
Kr. Cuthbert, secretary of the Pacific Northwest Tourist Association, in
a letter under date of February lst,
makes some excellent suggestions regarding the handling of tourists and
may 1 suggest that some of tliese committees he appointed.
J think we can now look forward
to the completion of the Banff-Win-
dermere road this fall, and with the
completion of this already well advertised road will come a mighty wave
of tourists, the number of which, 1
think, will bo much iu excess of uny
cstmute which we might now make,
so that It behoves us to get busy now
If we expect to care for tliese toiir-
su as we would wsh.
We not only expect that tourists
will spend a large amount of money In
our province but that we may induce
somo of them to locate here, or ut
some other p..int in tlie province; and
what tends to help the province ls,
bound to help us to some extent. Let:
us boost for East Kootenay first and
If we haven't got what Is wanted recommend some other part of the
provinco for in this great provinco
wo liavo everything that could be
wished for.
in our own district we have wonderful grazing lands, a very lurge
lumbering centre, tho largest zinc-
lead mine in tho world and many other
mining properties which will develop
Into great mines; one or tlie greatest
coal fields known, East Kootenay Is
today and always has been one of the
best districts in B.C. Some say we
have nothing in tho province; permit
me lo toy the person who says this
knows very little of lhe province. I
will give you a few proofs: The.
Mountain Lumber Mills last year, and
It was a i-oor year, sold 190 million !
feet of lumber valued at $4,660,000;
the coal mines produced products val-
tied at $5,21)9,446; the districts of
Creston. Nelson and other points around Koolenay lake produced 350 car*
of apples and over 100 cars of other'
fruits valued at over a half million
Right here in our district the great
Sullivan Mine shipped 291,910 tons of
zinc, r,;j tons of lead and 1221 tons
of iron pyrites, making about 6000
cars, and they paid out In wages $450,-
ooo. I
Then look at the large number of;
rail waymen required to move all this,
tonnage.   In the face of these positive1
proofs one must admit fiat we have MInlng c™mmee:
a very wonderful district and   prov- f    DeI«a!fW hxpenseS „ nn

very rapidly.   Then let ub be prepared '       ,or kloslt  ' "°
to meet this growth when it comes.
Another word with regard to mining. I Camping Grounds:
1 think that evidence enough is available to convince us that iron in great
quantities exsts- n Ithe Bull River
district; that Perry Creek will, in th*
near future, be producing gold on a
paying basis and the St. Marys will
Grand Forks on tho west to I,oth-
bzrldgo on tho oast, aud a foundation

at which, i was present- It was decided
to publish u b'K>k of 32 ! .ige.; covering

The health! of the city and district
has been excellent and accidents among the hundreds of men employed In
the district have been very few, so
that our hospital, one ot the very

Our school facilities are second to

overcrowded at present, but it is hoped that this will soon be remedied by
tho erection of n large addition to the

In conclusion, I wish to thank the
members of the executive and ilie Secretary for their untiring efforts to
promote the interests of the city and

Dominion Secretary ■ Addresses
Public Meeting In City
ou Sunday Lust
There was a very good turnout ou
Sunday evening last at tho Star Theatre to hear addresses from Messrs. W.
Drlnnan and C. G. McNeil, respectively the provincial and dominion secretaries ot the G. W. V. A. Mr. McNeil
was tbe chief speaker, and many of
those present got a new insight Into
the scope of the work the veterans'
organization Is doing. Major H. B
Hick3, president of the local G. W.
V. A. presided, and with him on tbo
platform was Dr. P. W. Green, tho honorary president of the organization
An orchestra was in attendance and
rendered selections while the people
wero gathering.
Mr. Drlnnan stated he was not go-
Ing lo speak al length, since he had
tho opportunity more often of moet
Ing the public in this province than
Mr. McNeil. lt was thoilght that
the time lind come when a llttlo moro
publicity could bo given to tbe work
being douo by tbo G. \V. V. A-, and
the meetings held In this provinco
were for the purpose of Informing
members and Alters whnt was being
done lie added a word of comtnen
latlon to'too local branch for tho
work they wero doing in stablelzfng
Mr. McNeil also added his words of
praise in this connection In regard to
the Cranhrook branch and other branches In tho Interior. He pointed
so to the national- dimensions of tho
organization, now embracing some
200.000 members in upwards of 800
branches. He said that the organization was becoming more than ever at
influence in the public and nationa
life, and of Increasing utility to ex
service men. As early as 1917 it
had made" Itself felt. Some of Hie
questions that had heen dealt with
were Increased pensions nnd lajid set
i lenient, and iu these matters he fell
tho G. W. V. A. had been of distinct
lervlce to the veterans. Vocational
training was another line aljjng which
they had achieved considerable •success on behalf of the ex-service men
But he wishdtl to emphasize that thej
wero not acting at all selfishly; they
merely sought just recompense
losses men had Bust allied lu the
of different  kinds.
Following his usual custom Mr. McNeil Invited1 suggestions from the aud
lence as to what lines in particttlai
of tlm G. W. V. A. work Ihey would
like to hear about.       Questions   tt
accordingly asked as to the housing
scheme for returned soldiers. Air. Sic
Nell discussed this question, indicat
inf. tlie stand the organization hud ta
ken in bringing to pass what had been
done in this regard, and indicated
tbey,were going to approach the gov
eminent again on this matter. In
capacity arising from war' service
but not occurring during service wa:
also discussed, as well as the disposal
of the canteen fund and the $2000 bo
mis proposal-. The amalgamation of
the various veterans' bodies whlcl
had been effected iu Winnipeg recent 1>
wns ulso dlscusssd by the dominion
secretary, who considered it a distinct
step forward, Mr. McNeil is the first
general secretary of the new body to
be known as the Dominion Alliance
in the closing portion* of bis address'Mr. McNeil dealt very tellingly
with thu mission of the G. W. V* A.
aiuMls relation to the hig problem:
of today, such as immigration and
unemployment. Wherever he went
he made it his business to look ink
tbo hospitals, the employment bureaux, and talked with the dependents
of returned men and he was convinced
tbey must not relax one ounce of
orgy while conditions exist which need
remedying; the work must continue
All classes wero embraced - in tin
membership of the G. W. V. A-. men
of all tjasscs were linked together in
the oiio body for Hie common service
of all, and he appealed very Btrongly
for the best support of ull the veter-
jans in tbelr work. Little petty d'f-
I feroiices needed to be put aside 'in
! striving for their common end of national service, "What Is needed Is
not less civilization, but more civilization," he concluded; "not less Chris*
i liimiiy. but moro Christianity "

Dr. King made some reference to

aud larger works, such as the harbors and navigable waters of the province, alt of which pomes under thc

As to the by-election, Dr. King stated that he would appreciate an acclamation. There were duties pressing
at Ottawa, and he desired to be able
to return to Ottawa, right after nomination day, and not be under the necessity of waiting till after the election. Suggestions were being put
out for an acclamation, and he hoped
