T. D. Caven
Passes Away
Succumbs on Saturday Last
at Vancouver to Attack
of Pneumonia
Word received iu the city on Sunday lust of the death at Vancouver
tho day before of T. 11. Caven, has
excited much regret all through the
district. Hi' wns exceedingly well
known, and very few of his friends
here hud any idea that he hud been
seriously ill. He succumbed to un
attack of pneumonia, death taking
place at the General Hospital on
Saturday afternoon.
The late Thomas Donald Cuvcn,
through his long connection with the
C.P.R. here and the years when he
was before the public even more
prominently as a member of the
legislature for the Cranbrook riding,
wus a familiar figure to everyone in
■ the city. He was born at Belleville,
Ontario, and was in his 63rd year.
His father had been member of the
Ontario legislature, and an uncle,
Principal Caven of Montreal, was
known to ninny older residents from
the East.
Mr. Caven came to the Crows Nest
district at the time of the construction of the railway in 1897 and 1898.
Previous to that time he had spent
some years in Calgary working in
various capacities. He was a brake-
man on the construction train laying
the steel westward from Lethbridge
through MacLeod and on westwards
towards the spot where Cranbrook
was later to be established. The
steel reached this point in the middle
of 1898. The engineer of the construction train of which he was one
of the crew was Thomas S. Gill, of
this city, the conductor being "Salty"
McKenzie whom some old time railroaders will recall. On the completion of the Crow's Nest line and when
its operation was commenced with
Cranbrook as the divisional point,
Mr. Caven was running out of this
point and soon gained promotion as
a conductor, and was altogether 26
years in the service of the C.P.R.
In the early years, he was a good
deal in public life in different ways,
undertaking trips to the Kast on
business connected with conductors
and railroad men, and it was not
long before he took nn active part
in local politics. He was u strong
Conservative and in 1903 the district
known up until that time as South-,
East Kootenay was divided for pur-1
poses of representation in the legislature, and Cranbrook was given the
privilege of electing its own member. The Conservative nomination
nt that time wns divided equally between the lata Mr. Caven- nnd J. A.
Harvey, former Fort Steele barrister,
who later withdrew in favor of Mr.
Caven. The Liberals had nominated
Or. King ami this election proved the
first of several occasions in which
they wen1 opposing each other for
the honor of representing the district
Dr, King wen the first election, but
in 1909 when Mr. Caven was put up
the second lime, he was elected, and
again In 181-1 he tvu returned to Victoria by acclamation. What Tom
Caven did for the district, during
those yeurs Is still talked nbout. The
country was opened up with roads,
hridges were built and to this day
there are many pnrts of the Cranbrook district which are still served by
the original roads built with the appropriations which be secured for the
district while its membor. It was
un ern of solid growth and material
prosperity for Cranbrook and a good
deal of the prominence which the
district obtained then wns due In the
perseverance nnd energy of Mr. Caven while nt Victoria. Dr. King re-
gained the sent in the big upheaval
which put the Liberals back in power
in 1910, and in lflfiO nt the next
flection Mr. Caven lost the seat by
only n very narrow majority, the
mutter not being decided until the
count of the absentee votes, W. R.
Ross, K.C., now of Kimberley and
Crunbrook, wns a member of the
house at Victoria at the same time
ns Mr. Caven. He finally left the
service of the C.P.R. in 1924 and
last year the family removed to
Victoria, disposing of their house
In addition to the widow and one
daughter, Mis*, Marguerite Caven,
who are both so well known here,
there arc two sisters residing in Calgary, and a brother in the United
States. The funeral took place on
Wednesday afternoon at Vancouver,
being attended by his relatives from
Calgary. The last rites were conducted under the auspices of the
Masonic Lodge, the lute Mr. Ca'-en
having been u member of the Cranbrook Lodge, A.F. & A.M. No. 34,
as well as Rocky Mountain chapter,
R.A.M., Selkirk Preceptory an.l the
Cranbrook Shrine Club.

Since the installation of the K.P.
Lodge in Cranbrook there have been
many celebrations of the founding
of the Pytbiun order, but not in the
recollection of any present at the
big function in Castle Hall last
Thursday has there been one more
thoroughly enjoyable than thatowhich
marked (lie <il!nd birthday of th)e
order. The pleasant utTuir started at
Hi p.m. following the regular meeting of the Pythian Kisiters Nemple
No. 2.'{, when to the struitis of music
of tie- Robinson Orchestra; dancing
commenced, Interspersing the dance
numbers were u Dumber of musical
selections, ull of which were thorough*
ly enjoyed. "Pal of My Cradle
Hays" ns sung by Mr. Harry Collier
wus well received and brought hearty
applause. "Love's Old Sweet Song"
was nicely rendered by Mrs. Brum-
bey, her encore also being very acceptable. Banjo selections by Billy
Steward were also very pleasing to
listen to. Mrs. Chns. Harrison, who
is a comparative stranger to Cranbrook audiences, was heard to advantage in two well rendered selections, the hearty applause which she
received being well merited.
Just before the supper dance, a
huge cake, beautifully decorated and
on which had been placed 62 candles,
marking the age of the Pythian Order, was brought in and placed on a
pedestal in the centre of the hall.
The lights in the hall were extinguished and the candles lit, the effect being a most pleasing one, as
the merry throng danced around the
illuminated cake. Following this
dance, Sister Mrs. H. G, Long, in an
appropriate address, presented the
cake as a birthday remembrance from
the Pythian Sisters to the Crescent
The address which Mrs. Long gave
at this time was as follows: "Chancellor Commander, Sisters, and Brothers of Crescent Lodge, No. 33, and
friends. It affords the Sisters of
Crunbrook Temple, No, 28, a great
deal of pleasure to be your guests
this evening in assisting to celebrate
the 62nd anniversary of the grand
organization of the Knights of Pythias, for we as the Sister Temple
realize that without your order we
iuld be unknown as Pythian Sisters.
'Our Temple, though scarcely a
year old, has made excellent progress
both socially nnd financially, and we
ure looking forward to our first anniversary of the local Temple in the
near future.
On behalf of Cranbrook Temple,
No. 28, I can nssure you we have
spent u delightful evening, and when

And elftap their hands in greeting;

"Twill be R happy meeting."
Mr.    E.    A.    Hill    suitably    replied  for the Lodge, paying tribute
the invaluable worth of the Sister
organization.    This   event   was   followed by supper served in the banquet hull, it being necessary to make
two sittings to accomodate the large
number present.    With apologies to

Delegation From Cranbrook
Attends Meeting There
Wednesday Evening

The  regular  monthly meeting of
A good meeting of Kimberley
sportsmen took place there on Wednesday evening of this week ut the
K. P. Hall, when it was decided thut
the efforts of the Cranbrook and District Rod and Gun Club would be
backed up to the fullest extent possible by those interested in Kimberley, the feeling being thut this would
better serve the needs of the case
than the organization of u separate
club for Kimberley.
A delegation from this city attended to lay the matter before the meeting, those making the trip up being
Messrs. W. F. Cameron, C. J. Lewis,
H. J. Collier, C. J. Little, J. P. Fink,
F. H. Detail, D. Halcrow, J. F. Gui-
mont, A. S. Ward, J. Martin, A. C.
Bowness and W. Steward.
E. S. Shannon, who was the chairman of the meeting, explaining how
it had come to be called, und Ted
Nagle acted as secretary. Mr, Gui-
mont explained the varied activities
of the club in the district, and how
It was carried on In the interests of
the sportsmen from all parts. The
opinion was expressed by J. S. Fisher,
of Kimberley, that it would serve
the purpose best to have Kimberley
co-operate with Cranbrook, Dick
Burke felt there might not be a sufficient number in Kimberley to form
a separate club which could function effectively. A motion was accordingly made by these two, und
carried, along those lines.
A number of the Cranbrook men
spoke on different aspects of the
work being carried on by the Rod
and Gun Club, and the ways thnt
might be employed to raise some
funds in Kimberley. F. II. Dezull
suggested the formation of a small
committee that could work.with the
executive of the club and would be
able to present the matters especially
of interest to Kimberley. Mr. Fink
mentioned the value the sporting attractions have to the tourists, and
mentioned that Mr. Drayton of Fort
Steele, who has spent upwards of
$200,000 in the district in connec
tion with his mining claims, came to
the district originally for some hunting. C. J. Lewis recalled that twenty-
six years ago he had been at the
Black Bear Mine, near the site of
the present concentrator.
Some of the Kimberley sportsmen,
in making suggestions regarding the
fishing to be had in the district, ud-
vocatcd that Cherry Creek and n
portion of Mark Creek be closed for
a time at least, and the presence of
so many suckers in St. Mary's Luke
was also referred to. Among those
from Kimberley who spoke in this
connection were Frank Carlson, Ted
Nagle, George Holland and Dick
Frank Guimont replied to the suggestions which were made, and the
Kimberley committee appointed comprised Messrs. Dick Burke, D. Sutherland, J, Sanderson and A. A. Wnrd.
The last named was unable to be
present, and his unavoidable absence
wns much regretted.
Thank* were extended to the visitors from Cranbrook before the meeting adjourned.
First Auto Show
In E. Kootenay
Hanson Garage Staging Unique Display of Their
New Models
the lust issue of this paper wus
the announcement of the big
automobile show to be put on nt the
Auditorium on Friday and Saturday,
Feb. 26th and 27th. This show is
something entirely new for this district, and already mich interest is
being created among auto fans.
From what can be leurned, the uf-
fair will be u minaturc of the big
shows thut have recently taken place
in the larger centers, and while the
display of curs will he limited to
those in which the garage responsible
for the conducting of the show is
interested,' namely the Ford, Me-
Luughlin-Buick und Oldsmobile cars,
many other feutures of the larger
affairs will be in evidence. All the
latest appliances in'use on the cars
and the many accessories available
for the convenience and comfort of
the motorist will be on display.
Besides the showing of the enrs
lentioned, the Goodyear tire products will be much to the fore, while
in another section of the show, Imperial Oil Limited will hold sway.
Here the good points of their well
known "moving spirit" will be told
and samples will be seen of the many
oils and greases without which the
humble Ford or the far-famed Lincoln would he more useless than the
bldest shuy. Showing the latest
models of the makes of curs named
above will be experts from Winnipeg, while outside representatives
of the Imperial Oil und Goodyear
Tire Company will be in charge of
their respective displays. With the
price reductions on the Ford cars just
announced, the models of this make
will doubtless receive special attention. In recognition of the show and
the magnitude of the sales of the
Cranbrook agency, the Ford Company are sending Mr. MacPherson a
new Sport Model from the Winnipeg
^Assembly line. This will be the first
of its cluss in the West. This car
is a classy product and was sold to n
local party as soon as a view of it
was seen. Mr. George Sutherland,
who holds the sub-agency at Kimberley for the Fords, McLaughlins
and Oldsmobiles will also be represented at the show. An added pleasure will be the presence of an or-
To get the cars in the Auditorium
it will be necessury to tuke the casings off the doors.
Several recommendations for the
coming season to be made to the government, were passed at a meeting of
the Game Conservation Board of B.
C, held at Vancouver last Thursday.
The most important of these was the
abolition of the closed season fur
black bear. These bear arc becoming
a menace to farmers in some districts
and are also said to be killing a large
number of deer. If the board's re
commendation Is adopted, shooting
of black bear will be permissible at
any time during the year.

man, paid high tribute to the valuable
work which they were doing, claiming thut the community had been enriched by their orgauiiation and their
efforts. With regard to the mutter
of the cluss of literature being read
today, some was, of course, good, but
he felt that fiction was being read
instead of the better class. There is,
however, something beyond the knowledge of books thut was in the assertion of one's own personality. He

(From The Lethbridge Herald)
J. B. Turney, on his return from a
business trip through Eastern British
Columbia, speaks in glowing terms of
the progress noticeable in the city of
Cranbrook. The city is selling $45,
000 worth of bonds to be spent as
follows: $15,000 on new road building equipment; $22,000 for the necessary labor; $8,000 for new sidewalks with concrete curbs. Th'e city
has placed nn order for a complete
gravel crushing plant, The ground
gravel will be mixed with tarvia and
!,000 feet of 7G-foot street and
0,200 feet of 46-foot tarvia street
will be built.
This work will be a continuation of
the program launched last year. A
park, suggested by the lovely Gait
Gardens of Lethbridge, will be creat-
d on two city blocks in the heart of
the city and more trees will be planted in the residential section. A strictly modern tourist camp will be maintained this summer covering one and
a half ucres. It will be fitted with
hot and cold showers, sewer connections, stoves, utensils, etc., and will
be beautifully treed. Mr. Turney

Lumberton people was solemnized in
Spokane, when Miss Margaret Rob-
BrtSon of Portland, Oregon, daughter
f Mrs. Margaret Robertson of Crunbrook, und Mr. II. P. Klincstiver,
manager of the Spruce Mills, were
united in marriage ut the Presbyterian Church on Cannon Street, at five
thirty o'clock. The couple were attended by Mrs. Allie, of Spokane,
and Messrs. A. II. Stewart of Lum
berton, and G. C, Robson now of
Spokane, but formerly manager of
the Spruce Mills ut Lumberton. A
dinner wus served to the wedding
party ut the Davenport Hotel shortly
after the wedding ceremony took
place-. The bridal couple left on the
evening train hound for Portland
from which place they departed for
San Francisco, and Los Angeles, on
the following jnorning. They will

the greater part of the time since
her graduation. She is a daughter of Mrs. Margaret Robertson of this city and the late
J. M. Robertson. Mr. Klinestiver has
made his home in this district for the
past twelve years during which time
he hns been employed in the lumber
industry in Jaffray, Bill River, Yahk,

Arthur Blake Meets With Bad
Mishap When Log Crushes His Leg
Between ■! and 5 Thursday afternoon Inst, Mr. Arthur Blake, who was
engaged with his father, J. W. Blake,
on a logging contract for the Crow's
Nest Lumber Company nt Skookum-
I'huck, met with u serious accident
through which he will be Inid up for
some time. It appears that the unfortunate man wns dogging n chain
of logs down hill, n string of seven
or eight logs tied end to end and
pulled down by a team. It is the
practice when the logs start to COHje
too fast to swing the horses to one
Ide, and the hook from the team to
the chain is so arranged thut it immediately becomes disconnected, letting the logs go on.   Mr, Blake had
lone this, but the logs jumped the
•kid way, and before he could get
out of the way he wus caught between the logs and a stump, the left
leg being badly crushed from a little
above the knee to a little above the
unkle. Al the time of writing it is
not known to what extent it might
be injured. Jus. Blake, brother of
Arthur, hurried on horse-buck six
miles to get u cur, in which, after
the injured man was given First Aid.
he was conveyed to the St. Kugene
hospital, where the wound \vu> sewn,
the victim having to undergo the or-
lenl without the use of chloroform,
on account of the loss of blood which
he had sustained. With the last report from the hospital, Mr. Blake
was progressing favorably. It is only
about a year ago that Mr. Blake was
the victim of another accident, in
which he was hit by u flying hook,
which broke his unkle. His many

Dear Sir:
On behalf of the hockey fans of
Spokane, I desire that you convey
to the hockey players of Cranbrook,
Kimberley, Wycliffe and Fernie, our
thanks and appreciation for their
hospitality und sportsmanship while
the Spokane Zips were in British Columbia, in contrast to the treatment
accorded them in Alberta.
It is possibly the best thing that
could have happened that our boys
took the trip to B.C. during this
season, and the Hockey Association
there is now confronted with a situation regarding exhibition game.-
hich would necessarily arise next
Fall. Your four towns there will have
the matter straightened out by that
time, as this Is not the last trip that
Spokune hockey teams will take
through the Crow's Nest  Pass.
It is to be regretted that Blair-
more did not fulfill their contract
with our team, as did your four B.C.
towns:, because we would have had
an actual ruling in regard to exhibition games threshed out in Alberta
as well as in B- C, with no loss fi-j

Manager of New Bank
Mr. Saunders, formerly of the
Bank of Commerce branch at Many-
berries, Alta., arrived last week-end
nnd has gone to Kimberley to take
charge of the new branch of tht
bunk which hns lately been opened
there. Mr, Ross, recently of the inspectors' department, und who was
Ii, the Cranbrook branch for a short
time, is with Mr. Saunders at Kimberley.
Mr. Klinestiver. A royal welcome
will be in readiness for the newly-
weds when they arrive in Lumberton
the first part uf March, and the Lum-
twiton band will be out in full futce.
Kimberley hockey fans to the number of 300 journeyed to Cranbrook
on Saturday night to witness the first
game of the two-game series between
Greenwood, winners of the Boundary
District, and the Kimberley Intermediates, winners of the East nnd
West Kootenay sections. Accompanied by the band a jolly time wns
hnd on the trip to Cranbrook. Tho
fans, led by the band, marched to
the rink, where they loyally backed
nnd cheered their hockey warriors
on   to   victory.
Fir»t  Game   Not   One-Sided
While the result of the first game
wus 10 to 2 in favor of Kimberley,
it wns in reality not nn indication of
the game from the spectators' standpoint, for while the scote was one-
Bided, the play was interesting from
start to finish, the Kimberley boys
never letting up for one minute, it
being apparent that they were not
taking any chances  of a sudden re-
rsul  of  form  on   the  part   of  the
'eenwood players.    In fact, up to
within actually 6 minutes of the end
f the second period the score was
to 1. The lust 7 goals which our
boys tallied were secured In the lust
twenty-five minutes of the playing
periods. Every man t>n the Kimberley team was out to do his best, and
that they succeeded will not be questioned by anyone, tiecau.se it would
be difficult to point to one weak spot
n the whole team. Great credit is
due to the Greenwood boys for the
plucky fight which they put up. Their
■flfort to hold back the onslaught of
the Kimberley team in the final period was much to their credit, and with
a more experienced goalkeeper, the
difference in the count possibly would
not have been as great. Morrison
on the forward line and Taylor on the
defence were the outstanding players
for the losing team, the last named
only receiving his doctor's permission
to leave Greenwood a half an hour
before the departure of the train.
Ir would be difficult to differentiate
between the players on the Kimberley team. Peever in goal and Musser
and Rochon on the defence played
an absolutely unbeatable game, while
the forwardSj Huffman, Blumenaeur,
Lilly. Gill and La Fortune, all played
star games.
Huffman carried off the lead in
the scoring honors with 5, while Blumenaeur and Lilly each counted 2
and Rochon 1. The game was exceptionally clean considering its
speed. Greenwood player-, while admitting they had met a superior team,
anticipated that after a two days
res* from the travel, they could put
up a better fight on Monday night.
It was noticable that the first five
minute- of the three periods that
Greenwood played a very fast game,
which would indicate that they lacked
the practice or the support of spare

going to Greenwood territory. Morrison of Greenwood started away
with the fine rush which Huffman
topped, carrying the puck again to
Greenwood territory. Ilallett (G.)
made a good stop and returned.
Blumenaeur checked and passed to
Mus-ser, who made the first shot on
Greenwood goal, but failed to score.
Taylor (G)*got in some nice work,
Peever was drawn out to IRVS score.
Huffman, who was playing fast hockey, made a good rush practically the
full length of the rink, but failed to
puss the Greenwood goal. Blumen-
aucr next made a rush 00 goal. Greenwood's goalkeeper dropping on his
knees to save. From a face off in
front of goal, Morrison (OJ rushed,
but was stopped by Musser, who returned and again forced Greenwood
goul to drop. Rochon followed later

hot shots from Ln Fortune and Huffman. Carlson (G) staged a good
run, which wus blocked by La Fortune. Ten minutes after the start of
the game, Blumenauer scored the
first goal with n clean shot from the
blue line. Soon after the face off,
Lilly rushed, but was stopped by
Morrison (G), who was playing a
great game for the visitors. Morrison
gave Peever a difficult one to stop.
The pretty combination piny of Gill,
Huffman and Lilly failed to count

and again called on Peever to save.
Lilly from his own blue line rushed
the full length of the rink, but failed

comparison which any intelligent person can ponder
on to get the right perspective on things, and will
answer the question as to whether the city can afford the luxury nf two printing establishments.
Furthermore it is in order at this time to
state that The Herald is uo longer excessively burdened with the obligations of former regimes which
would hinder progress and development, Whether
the wish that it were so lurks in the mind that gives
utterance to the thought, or not, the facts are as

this season, as everyone knows, has been some
thing worth while talking about.
11 is the kind
winter that the Hoard of Trade, or somebody
terested in the history of the district, should take
the trouble to compile in statistical form, put into
print and circulate far and wide, which could be
done without the twinges of conscience which must
have attended the distribution of sonic of the earlier
literature regarding the possibilities of the district
Figures never lie, and the winter now Just on its last
lap will be remembered as the most remarkable ever
experienced in the history of the East Kootenay.
Old timers can recall one or two winters that closely
approach the present one for mildness, Inn not quite

different classes of advertising to
and it would gel them. Those advertisers, therefore,
who are only making use of one paper, are thus
getting the advantage of the presence iu the field
of the other, whether thev care tu acknowledge it
or nol.
This paper lias consistently set itself against
the practice of filling its columns with cut-price advertising, bogus advertising on which a chance is
taken whether it will be paid for or not, unwarranted free advertising, or large spaces bartered for on
a "lake il out in goods" basis. All these arc practices by which a newspaper can be made to look big,
below zero, while Cranbrook suffered a few degrees
of frost,
Perhaps it is only a freak of nature, perhaps
the winters are, as some contend, getting milder,
but mankind is proverbially forgetful of what has
gone in the past in ihe way of unpleasantness, and
a winter like the present one will serve a useful purpose iu giving people generally a new interest iu the
district,. It is a winter that will he talked about,
and next year in the grip of away below zero temperatures, people will take comfort in recalling what
a wonderful winter it was last year.
What might have heen a very
serious accident took place on Tuesday morning when Brown's bus was
leaving Kimberley for the return
journey to Crunbrook.
Approaching the railroad crossing
on Wallinger Avenue Mrs. Bro\vn;
who wns driving the car, failed to
notice an ore train backing from the
Tunnel Mine, ami commenced to cross
the track; too late she observed the
oncoming ears ami attempted to pick
up speed, not quickly enough, however, to prevent the collision.
A rear wheel of the stage was
torn off and it was driven some 20
yards  from  the place of impact.
Fortunately Mrs. Brown retained
her presence of mind, otherwise the
conveyance must have been completely wrecked, and possibly injuries
received by some of the three passengers (2 ladies and 1 child) travelling in it,
The locomotive was proceeding
quite slowly and there appears to be
no blame attached to the crew, but
it is well to recall that an automatic
alarm at this point, to herald the approach of trains, has already been
recommended by Kimberley Board
of Trade.
Mrs. Brown is to be commended
for calmness in hazardous circumstances, and she and her passengers
are to be congratulated on a provi-
lential escape from injury.

Dr. Rutledge of Cranlirook was a
business visitor to Wycliffe on Friday last.
Mr. E. L. Staples left last Thursday for the Company's farm near
Vauxhall, Alberta, and is expected
to return home this week.
Mr. C. H. Cotter, C.'A. and Mr.
F. G. Winspear of Calgury are in
Wycliffe'this week conducting the annuel audit for the company.
The whist drive was held ns usual
in the Recreation Hall on Wednesday evening last. After an en joyable
series of (tames, the prises were
awarded as follows: gentlemen's
first, Mr. A. Yager; ladies' first. Mrs.
W. Johnson; (rents' consolation. Mr,
J. Foster, and ladies' consolation Miss
Florence McDermid. Supper was
served by Mrs. J. S, Staples und Mrs.
A. Staples, who proved themselves
genial and capable hostesses.
Mrs. M. Weisnowitch and infant
son returned to Wycliffe from the
St. Eugene Hospital, Crunbrook, the
end of lust week.
Many Wycliffe residents availed
themselves of the opportunity afforded by the putting on of the special
evening train between Cranbrook and
Kimberley on Saturday evening last,
and made the trip to Cranbrook, the
majority visiting the rink to witness
the hockey match between Kimberley
and Greenwood teams.
On Monday evening, Feb. 22nd,
the ladies again met to make final
arrangements for the bean supper to
be held in the Recreation Hall on
Friday evening, Feb. 20th. A goodly
number of ladies were present in the
church, testifying to their anxiety to
make the occasion a success and raise
the fifty dollars needed for the
church expenses. A very appetizing
supper will be served, and the ladies
are hoping to,.see a large gathering
-- a reward for their efforts.
Mr. and Mrs. S. G. Clark were Kim-
berley visitors on Friday evening last.
Mr. Magnus Johnson from Wardner has commenced duties as grader
in the Staples mill, and has taken up
residence here along with his sister
and nephew.
Mr. Morris Mindlin, from Calgary,
was staying at the Wycliffe Hotel for
two or three days during last week.
He was showing his usual line of
tailored goods.
The Wycliffe boys journeyed to
Kimberley last Wednesday to play
their return hockey game with the
Kimberley boys, and after a onesided game Kimberley won out by
twelve goals to two. Owing to the
Wycliffe rink being in such poor
shape, the Wycliffe boys had been
unable to turn out for practice for
some considerable time, hence the
above result.

As showing the type of official who
evidently appeals most to our Ottawa
bosses let us quote bow this now famous grftfter employed by the government explained one of his private deposits. This was for a sum
of $U,UOO paid into his own account.
He said he sold his automobile for
$2,U00. Later he bought another
for $1600. This made .$4<Ji.(J.
He resold it and this made $6000.
For the remainder there is my salary
and bank discounts and I borrowed
52000. The total is §14,000." Can
you beat it? And yet the government
knew in .May last year that this
man was making deposits of sums up
to $00,000 into bis own account. And
still McKenzie King kept him on the
job. "Birds of a feather flock together."

A very enjoyable whist drive was
held in the Yahk Mill Hall last Sat
unlay night by the Ladies' Guild of
Yahk. No doubt there would have
been a considerably larger attendance
if a private party had not been held
at the Anderson home on the Yahk
Flats the same evening, and at which
a large number of young people were
present, and from all reports greatly
enjoyed themselves.

Charlie Olson, the well known
Swedish wrestler, who has been in
Yahk for the past month, hns now
started active training for his coming
match with Bill Root, of Athol, Idaho.
Olson realises that he will have to
give his best to stand any chance with
Root, who although a young man. is
very well versed in the art of "Catch
as Catch Can." However, Olson is
confident of getting the two falls,
and promised the "fans" that attend
a wrestling match well worth the
watching. While Olson will huve the
entire backing of the Swedish population, Bill Root will also have considerable backing from the large
number of friends he has made in
this district by his clean cut ways,
whether in sport or play.

We are glad to see that a newspaper of the standing of The Toronto
Saturday Night" should carry on its
'Front Page" expressions of well
founded convictions on the one subject dear to the hearts of we fellows
on the street. This well known international writer says: "Let us think
and act nationally." "It strikes me
that if we hnd more confidence in
ourselves and less confidence in
Uncle Sam we would get along belter." "In a word we should see our
selves, Canada, not provincially, but
nationally." He strikes the keynote
when he says: "What this country
wants is a get-together-club composed
of some nine million people." Let
us inaugurate a get-togethen-club and
elect our federal members of Parliament from our members. We fellows
earnestly believe that if we ride this
National horse of ours hard enough
we are going to got up in front.

The question: "la it possible for
the East to meet the West on the
common ground of Canadianism" has
been very ably answered in the affirmative by Mr. W. A. Irwin in Macleans Magazine of February 1st. He
refers to the recently inaugurated
National campaign by the Federation of Boards of Trade and heads his
article "A black eye for Sectionalism." This is another right move in
the direction of that much wanted
"purely Canadian" propaganda which
we fellows on the street have been
alking about for a long time. What

The great fight of Prince Albert

should please the Premier, especially
as he is convinced that this now lost
money came from some very doubtful source. Mr. Burgess, however,
says he is satisfied as he has attained
his declared object and fought his

Bye-the-bye, we are now wondering what the condition of the good
old "pork barrel" is now. It's quite
a long time since this was the subject for our curb chat, and we will

We fellows on the street are wondering how long poor Sir Henry
Thornton is going to stand for having to take his "running" orders from
the political bosses at -Ottawa. His
position is far from enviable. Placed in absolute control of the destinies
of the C.N. Railway he is, as a railway executive, looked up to by the
people of this country ns the man
responsible for the making or the
breaking of our Nationally owned
ailwoys. If we have another fifty-
million deficit we are going to get
after him and ask him why, and we
expect him to tell us. On the other
id, if he does well he will never
get a chance to tell us how he did
it, the Minister of Railways will ask
for the bouquets.

The control of the one great factor in railway losses or profits
evidently not to be left to Sir Henry's
discretion. We refer of course to
tbe subject of his freight rates.
From reports coming from Ottawa it
is evident that the fixing of rates, at
least on coal and wheat carried by the
.National lines, is to be done by one
or both of the two minority groups
now running the business of the
business of the country. We can well

Further demands have been made
for other special cut rates over the

can already hear another outburst
by the President of the C. P. R
against this unfair and suaidized
competition directed against his lines
nnd he certainly has grounds for n
big kick. We arc thinking thnt if

When will these politicians of ours

not only read our newspapers but
thnt we can read between the lines
pretty often? We wonder just how
many votes Tommy Church counted
over in his mind when he raised in

"overworked" and expressed his understanding that their work was
very "onerous." If he really succeeded in counting imaginary votes,
we fellows can tell him that these
will be numerically discounted by
the votes of the C.P.R. terminal
operators, who, with exactly similar "deep and cunning" or the "dull and

One of the most unusual succession
of hands ever known wis held by a well*
known player the other night and as
they art; very good Illustrations of tho
preemptive or Blmt-out li'l, it. ir» well
worth while to discuss them. Tiie th,rce
hands were lu-M In succession and are
as follows;
Hand No. 1
Hearts—A, 10,9,8,7,5,3,2
Clubs — J, 9,2
Dlamon is — A
The dealer and Bccond player passed
ami third player, holding the above
hand, bid four hearts. All passed and
he failed to m ike his contract by three
tricks. Bis opponents, however had an
coty game in spades so the shut*out bitl
saved t'
the game.
[land No. 2
Diamonds— none
Spades — A, K, Q, J, 9, 7, 6
The dealer posscd and the second player, with the above hand, bid four spades,
All passed and he made five odd, In thi*
case tliu shut-out bill probably made
little difference,
Hand No. 3
11. arts —A
Clubs—A, Q. J, 7
Diamonds— A, K.Q.J, 9,7,5,4
Spades— none
The dealer with the above hand bid
five diamonds. All passed and he made
a little slam. Tho opponents could have
math' five odd in eil her spades ol* hearts.
In this hand, also, tho shut-out bid
made little difference. The hands, however, are remarkable for being held in
succession by the .same player, something that probably will not happen
again in a decade,
The hands given in tho preceding
article wen; illustrative of the proper
bidding of two-suit hands and are well
worthy of careful Btlfdy. The question
in each cose is, what would you, as
dealer, bid?
Hand No 1
Hearta —A, 10,9,8,7
Cluba —A, 10,8,7,6
Diamonds — 7,6
T.'O. 'J.
Spades — 6
Tht s'lijvr bid with this hand is one
,.a. '.' oweibid bv either opponent or
v partner, bid tee heart. The reason
or preferring the club to the heart as
iw first bid «s that partner is more apt
to OVfltbld the club than the heart and
bo gives you a better chance to bid both
Hand No. 2 .
Hearts —8
Clubs —6
Diamonds— K, Q, 9,4, 2
Spades—K,j, 10,7,6,5
With this hand the better bid is one
spade. The spades are much stronger
than ti.e diamonds and should lie ri'bitl
before showing the diamonds. For thut
reason the one spade Is preferred to one
Hand No. 3
Hearts'*— none
Clubs—A, K. 6*10,4
Spades—A, K,J. 10,7
In this hand both suits are of fairly
equal value so one spade should be the
first bitl. If overbid, show the clubs,
Hand No. 4
Hearts — A, K, Q, 7
Clubs—K,C>. 10,8,7,6,5
Diamonds— none
Spades—Q, 6
With this hand, one club is the proper
bid. Clubs should be rcbid at least once
before showing the heart suit. The
«lull** are so much longer and stronger
that the hand will undoubtedly give
the best results with that suit as trumps.
Hand No. 5 i
Hearts — A, 8, 6
Clubs—K, J, 9, 5, 3
Diamonds —K, J, 9,5,3
Spades — none
This is a very doubtful hand. It is really
a sound pass but the two-suit character
of the hand makes it a tempting proposition to bid. If you do decide to bid,
onex diamond is correct. Whenever the
two suits are ol fairly equal value, always bid the higher value first.
Hand No. 6
Hearts - K, Q, 8, 4, 3
Clubs — Q, 10,9,8,7
Diamonds — 7, 2
Spades —J . *
This handshoukl undoubtedly bepawed.
Hand No. 5 is on the border line but
this hand is just Under, Pass with the
firm intention of bidding the hearts on
the next round if the bidding makes
such a course expedient. These example
hands comprise most of the usual types
of two-suiters, and the bidding as given
should be carefully studied.
fession was gone. He nourished in
its place a sullen and ingrowing conviction that it would be futile to
combat the ironical tempers of Fate.
So, while he was solicitious and
kindly in his reassurances that restored the half-hysterical girl to a
certain mood of calm, he maintained
for the most part a moody and uncommunicative silence during their
rather nervously hurried walk home.
It was twilight when they reached the O'l.eury gate, tired and dustily hot of body—even wearier und
more fevered of mind, from the
afternoon-long conflict of taut and
restrained nerves. Caroline, looking
into his drawn and troubled face,
tried to comprehend; Bob, looking
into her eyes ho filled with sweet
concern, tried lo talk. Neither succeeded.
He requested her to ask the
Widow to continue in charge of Bob
through the night; he wanted to be
alone, he said, unbothered by the
enre of the youngster.
"Can't I help you, Bob, in any
way? Do you want to come in a
while and rest and talk?" nhe offered hopefully.
He hesitated, for he did want to;
but he was not this moment the
master of u pliable will. The jolts
and the fears of the day, climaxed
by the upsetting encounter with
Spike, had set his heels for back in
Bobby, unaware of the peril, sat
laughingly  in  the  Utile  wagon.
a morass of old inhibitions. He dully
said that he must be going, and he
went—without a soft word to compensate her for the clean heart she
had opened to him; left her trembling, tearful, uncomprehending, nt
the garden gate staring after him.
Far down the street, near the
centre of town, an itinerant minstrel
was grinding out of his hand-organ
the undesignedly ironical strains of
The End of a Perfect Day." The
cloying sentimentally of the music
caused a bitter, choking laugh to
rise in Caroline's throat. She turned and ran forlornly into the house
for a tossed and wakeful night,
and a perplexed morning after.
Bob did not call for her, though
she waited vainly up to the last possible minute and then loitered all the
way to the depot hopeful that he
might overtake her. Nor did she
hear from him or of him up to the
time she fininshed work for the day.
Though it had been a comparatively easy day, she was tired and
listless when, in mid-afternoon, she
emerged from the rearside door of
the lunchroom into the dinky street
that paralleled the tracks and started for home.
A rattle and racket on the cobblestones and excited squeals in a familiar child's treble attracted her attention up the street along the un-
fenced yards. She saw scampering
across the street and into the yards
a large, black alley cat and helter-
skelter In full cry after it Bobby's
dog, harnessed to a little curt in
which Bobby sut holding on for dear
life and screaming gleefully, enjoying
the thrill of his young life.
The cart swayed and pitched diz-
xlly, but Bobby held on; ull four
wheels left the ground, and Caroline, watching, caught her breath
for fear it would turn turtle when
It bounced over the low 'curbing,
but by some miracle of the laws of
motion, It recovered its balance and
plunged on, Hghtside up.
The dog, stupid in his mad chase,
never hesitated at the margin of the
yards, but started across the tracks,
He came to grief in a hurry, though,
on the very first track, where the
cart skidded and became securely
stuck with a suddenness that jerked
the dog back upon his haunches
and almost catapulted Bobby headfirst to the ground. The cat, with
tail swollen and straight, made good
his escape; while Bobby excitedly encouraged the dog in its lunging efforts to free the cart and continue
the pursuit.
Caroline sighed with relief when
she saw that the dangerous career
of the youthful driver was halted
She hurried up the street, calling
to him to desist In his attempts to
carry tn tbe race.      At the same
time, Jim came out of a store on the
far side of the street and, locating
Bobby after a quick and perturbed
visual search, also started toward
So far Caroline and Jim had not
seen each other; but they did see,
simultaneously and with equal horror, a new danger that suddenly
loomed over Bobby—a puffing switch
engine hearing rapidly down upon
him. Bobby, unaware of the peril,
sat laughingly in the little wagon
prompting the efforts of the dog to
tug free.
The engine, moving fast, was within a few yards of the marooned
youngster, and it seemed futile to
reach Hobby In time to snatch him
to safety. But they tried—each
screaming at him, each unaware of
the other's approach. The engineer
of the switching engine had his back
turned, watching the signals of his"
hraktman on the long line of empties ho was shunting about. There
wus no hope of him seeing Bobby In
time, for even now the engine was
too closo to be stopped.
Then, with start ling .suddenness,
the danger was over as quickly as
it had arisen—for the engine crossed
a Bwitch to the next track, within ten
yards of where Hobby sat In his cart.
With a momentum thut could not be
checked at the last moment Caroline
und Jim raced to the spot of averted
danger, arriving at right angles to
each other and in unison reaching
down to snatch Bobby out of the carl.
At the instant they did so the tugging dog finally succeeded in his efforts to move the cart—and although
he progressed no more than a foot or
two, it was enough to make Caroline
and Jim miss their aim and collide
pump into each other's arms. They
straightened up in a daze, arms
around euch other, taking in what had
happened with bewildered glances—
the switch engine chugging harmlessly down another track, the dog with
his mind ut ease and off the cat now
seated on his haunches scraping his
tail on the cindered roadbed, and
Bobby waggling his finger at themjn
"Shame—shame—Daddy Jim is
hugging the lady!"
Caroline nnd Jim became awkwardly conscious of the truth of Bobby's
charge, and the more so because
startled looks around the general
vicinity revealed more than one
laughing yardman watching them also, Caroline quickly separated from
Jim, laughing to cloak her embar-
assment. Jim was flustered, too;
and relieved himself in the physical
work of lifting Bobby, his cart, and
his dog off thu track onto the safety
of the street.
Caroline and Jim fell into step behind Bobby, who drove his steed now
at a sedate pace. Both were breathless, with nerves still quaking from
the excitement.
"I had just stopped into the cigar
store for a moment, thinking the
youngster would be safe enough
outside—but you can never tell. We
were on the way down to meet you,
Caroline looked surprised, and Jim
milingly enlightened her.
"—you see, today is Bobby's
birthday and we're going to have a
party. Bob will he home in time
for it, and I wnnt you to come," he
said with a personal inflection that
Caroline did not notice in her glad
interest to be able to do something
for Bobby. She said enthusiastically:
'Of course, I'll come—and I'll
bake a cuke if you want me to, Jim!"
Jim and Bobby were equally delighted with this offer.
Lordy, that will be wonderful,"
enthused Jim, "Bob went out very
early this morning on a special call
Caroline's face brightened perceptibly at this intelligence, but unnoticed by Jim, who went on,
"—but I hnd penned a note for
him before I turned in, telling him
to get home as early as he could and
to bring his best girl."
(To be continued)
On Tuesday afternoon of last week
a wedding of considerable interest to
Lumberton people was solemnized in
Spokane, when Miss Margaret Robertson of Portland, Oregon, daughter
nf Mrs. Margaret Robertson of Cranbrook, nnd Mr. II. P. Klinestiver,
manager of tho Spruce Mills, were
united in mnrriage at the Presbyter-
inn Church on Cunnon Street, at five
thirty o'clock. The couple were nt
tended by Mrs. Allie, of Spokane
and Messrs. A. H. Stewart of Lum
herton, and 0. C. Robson now of
Spokane, but formerly manager of
the Spruce Mills at Lumberton. A
dinner was served to the wedding
party at tt\c Davenport'Hotel shortly
after the wedding ceremony took
place. The bridal couple left on the
evening train bound for Portland

minute Mills, who replaced La Fortune on the line, scored for Kimberley. Greenwood's goalkeeper seom-
d to have trouble in watching the
play, leaving his goal open when luckily shots by Rochon and Blumennuer
went wide. Royce, in goal for Greenwood, was forced to come out to stop
a combined play by Rochon and Huff,
man. Galllpau relieving made a

by a combination play by Morris*

Heavy  Seorinf  in  Third
The third period was high, wide
and handsome so far as scoring was
concerned. Gallipau and Morrison
had individual plays and some very
fine combination. After a very fine
double combination play which kept
Peever on the move, Rochon and Blumenauer rushed, followed later by
a high shot by Mills. For the next
two minutes play went from end to
end, Huffman, Gill nnd Blumenauer
distinguishing themselves. Musser
finully scored on a .slow shot from

period through absence of Taylor,
who was forced to retire with a
sprained ankle.
Huffman again led in the score
honors with I, Mills 2, Blumennuer
2, Lilly 2, Rochon I, Musser 1 and

game to the sntisfuction of all.

A very enjoyable dance was held
by the high school students on Friday evening of last week at the
Parish Hall, which in addition to being very lurgely attended by the students themselves, was also graced by
the attendance of a good many of
the parents, the teachers, and the
majority of the trustees. Thnt the
students are thoroughly up-to-date in
their dnneing taste is evidenced by
the fact that there were two Charleston dance numbers on the program,
so that now it can be said that Cranbrook is thoroughly up-to-the-minute.
Dainty refreshments had been arranged for by the committee of students in such a capable way ns to
excite much favorable comment. By
some this dance has been characterized as the most enjoyable of its kind
that has been held in connection with
the high school.
At the conclusion of the Green
wqod-Kimberley hockey game on
Monday evening, the Greenwood
team were entertained at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Ward, where
a very pleasant time was spent, niu-
and dancing having their place
on the impromptu program, as well
ns the refreshments which were served. It wus the intention of the Kim
berley boys to have entertained the
visitors from the boundary, but in
this commendable intention they were
forestalled by others. The visit >r-=
expressed themselves in the highest
terms of the hospitality shown them,
and it is good to know that they left
town with pleasant recollections of
their week-end in Cranbrook, even
if they were not able to take away
the right to play in the finals which
they naturully coverted.

G. W. Smith, editor of the Greenwood Ledge, one of the boundary

history behind it, dating back to the
times when Greenwood enjoyed a
larger measure of prosperity and importance than at present, was one of
the party coming over to Cranbrook
with the hockey team that put up a
game fight against the huskier Kimberley Intermediates. Mr. Smith was
an interested visitor at the Herald
office, looking over the plant. Greenwood, some sixty miles from Beaverdell, und connected to it by road,
has received some benefit from the
mining revival that has been experienced there. *The Sally mine nt
Beaverdell, which it was reported
was taken over by outside interests,
is again being worked by the local
company that brought about the new
development there, and a crew of
eighteen or twenty men are now
working the mine.

The Fernie School Board estimates

than at the end of 1924.

offenders have been called on to make
good, and warnings administered
which ought to be a deterrent against
repetitions of such annoyances—to
use a mild term—in the future.

It is always easier to offer excuses than it is to make proper
apologies, but so long as there is no
hesitancy in doing the latter when
proper occasion arises, there ought
also to he no hesitancy in nccepting
the former as an explanation. This
goes by way of preliminary in nn attempt by The Herald to set itself
right for getting somewhat mixed in
setting out the report of* the final
game in the Dr. Green cup hockey
game last week, between the Bluebirds and the Canucks. A Herald
representative attended the game,
and prepared the copy which naturally set the story of the game out correctly. In the course of the many
mysterious processes which matter
has to undergo after it is written and
before it appears in print, this particular article quite evidently received more than its due share of
attention, misconceived corrections
being made that in reality were mistakes. By the time the article appeared in print, therefore, its sense
was different from the way in which
It had been written up, but like most
other mistake.-* of a major nuture, it
was not discovered till the paper had
gone too far to allow of correction
being made. It was with fear and

apologies which were proffered, along

Friday evening the Rotary Club
wns nt home to their members and
thoBe who assisted them in the recent
minstrel show. The affair was indeed a pleasant one. Young ns well
as the older of the visitors enjoyed
themselves very much. The little
ones especially will ever hold a soft
place in their hearLs for Rotary, and
will doubtless feel more than well
paid for their contribution, many of
them having for the first time the
pleasure of attending a big affair,
and enjoying themselves until one
a.m. Dancing was carried on during
the evening, nnd a delightful supper
was served to the company just before midnight. It was announced
during the evening hy Alan Graham
thut the proceeds from the Rotary
Minstrel shows amounted to something over $500 after nil expenses
hnd been paid. During the evening
the orchestra played some of the Rotary songs, and the echoes of the
minstrel show were heard again.
On Thursday evening of last week,
in the council chamber of the
city hall, about twenty-five represen-
tntive citizens attended a meeting
called by Chairman G. J. Spreull of
the Library Board. The meeting was
for the purpose of enlisting a more
wide-spread sympathy for the affairs
of the library, and apparently accomplished its purpose, as through a
result of a canvass which was made
following this meeting, and on which
reports were received on Monday
night at the library, showing an ad-1
dition of about fifty was made to the
membership. A number of those
reporting, however, were unable to
complete their canvass, nnd when this
is done it Is expected that many more
will be added to the list. When It Is
known thnt Ihe library possesses the
large number and variety of books
it does, there should be little trouble
in securing memlnrshlps. The canvass for mcmhershlp and funds will
he kept up until the affairs are put
on a firm financial basis.
Close upon $100,000 will be spent
this year in the Cranbrook district
on road work, and it is quite conceivable thnt this amount will be
exceeded if the expenditures which
are classed ns extra-ordlnnry are put
into effect. In addition to the usual
appointment of $60,000 for what is
termed ordinary work, special grants
hnve been provided for to permit
of a start being made on the new

able work on the road trail route be-'
tween Moyie and Kingsgate is also

in the district are also slated for renewal or repair. Another road, In
