the following from the Cranb
Herald:
The Victoria Colonist published a
sixty-four page Christmas number
and the whole sixty-lout pages
filled wilh interesting articles. The
Colontsl is one of the best newspapers published ni Western Canada, and
has made great strides, especially
during the fast year. It is fair anil
just in iis criticisms, Its editorial
columns, are always worth reading
and its news well edited. The Vie
torln Colonist has reached the stage
where it is in tlie class of a metre
politan daily.
We can assure the Herald that,
sueh an observation from such a
source is very pleasing. It is some
what remarkable how Britisli Columbia supports newspapers. The
papers "f this province are, when
population and the expense of production are taken into account, very
far ahead of anything in any part of
the continent.' Our contemporary
the Herald, is itself a conspicuous Illustration of how a bright and handsome paper of very considerable dimensions can be sustained in ;i
latlvely small community.
THE FIRE BRIGADE BALL ||
The ball given by the Craubrook
fire department on last- Thursday
evening was .111 unqualified success.
Ahoul nine n'cluck people began to
arrive and shortly alter that hour
the si rains of Nolan's Spokane or-

couples to their feet. As Ihe hour
grew later more dancers arrived until, about 11 o'ftlock ii was calculated     that    there   were    oue hundred

OBSERVATIONS   »
V
UV TIIE ULD MAN. *
Tbe situation ol the lumber ques-
liou, at the present time, Is not as
vwttufactory to the manufacturers as
it might be. lt is true that most
<>i the mills have large stoeks on
h-*ud, but these stocks have been
produced at the highest cost in Lbe
History ol lumber manufacturing in
the kuuteuays. There lias been considerable talk in regard to cut in
prices ol lumber, and this may   fol-
machinery, tlw Canadian dealer    in
food products, .md the Canadian
dealer in horses and feed take advantage of the duty imposed and
raise their prices Lo the top margin
in consequence. There is an evident
attempt on the part ol the people on
the prairie, by false arguments and
pityful talks' of the needs ol the
settler, to influence the politicians ol
both parties in their endeavor to
break down a gre.it industry in
Uritisli Columbia. The Kootenays
have been built up by tbe lumber
industry, the towns along the
" and in West Kootenay    have
been maintained in prosperity by this
same Industry, and it those who are
attempting to tear it down are BUO-
co&slul the interior of this province
will see mote business failures and
greater eo mine re iui disaster than
this section of the country has ever
known. The lumbermen are not unreasonable in anything they have
asked, J'hev will be perfeotl) satisfied with ,i duly equal to that Imposed by the l illicit Sr.iles. that of
$2 per thousand. The Dominion
parliament, will he derelict iu its
duty to this vast domain here iu
Hritish Columbia if it fails to impose this duty and thus give the
same protection to the lumber manufacturers as it gives to every dealer
oi whom the lumber manufacturer
nuisi purchase his supplies.
The people oi Jlrilish Columbia, regardless of party affiliations, would
do well to read the speech made by
Duncan Uoss in the Dominion parliament last Thursday, in a clear
and concise manner he shows up the.
.lypuciisy of the MclJride government on the Oriental immigration
"luestion and places Mr. Bowser,
whoso legal tir in acted as altoruej.s
for the Japanese immigration agency, in a very bad light indeed. Mr.
Koss is a comparatively new mem-
Dei .if the Dominion house, aud yet
there has never beeu a session since
he was elected that he has nut made
good in his fight for the people.
That is why Mr. Hoss has been subjected to so much personal abuse
since he was elected, but II the electorate oi Yale-Cariboo appreciates
good work on the part of their representative, uothiiig undei Llie
heavens can pre vent Duncan Hoss

The Herald is speclatl) Impressed
with the editorials in the Salmon

the case with Its communis upon
municipal matters. The Herald
considers that editorial a good one
If it did not so consider il would
noi. have printed the editorial originally.
The people of Cranbrook have bad
several opportunities, during the
lasl few years, of having a really
good orchestra. The trouble has
always beeu, however, that just as
soon as an orchestral organization
was started and getting nicely under
way, the people in charge ol dances
and balls would bring iu outside institutions or other lucal aggregations would start up, witb tlie result that there was not enough business for them all aud consequently
all failed. There is only one remedy
and that is lor tbe management of
all of the dancing dubs In Cranbrook to get together and decide
upon oue orchestra, demand good
music, pay for it and then stick to
that, orchestra. Hy this means in a
very short time Cranbrook would
have oue of the very best orchestras
in the province.
Last Tuesday was the anniversary

He was in    office Irom 1H73 to 1878.
The Cranbrook Herald spends more
money to make a readable newspaper than any weekly papei in
Western Canada. That is why tbe
Herald's subscription list is growing
so rapidly.
"Just a little bit, added to what
we've got, makes that a little bit
more." It is just those little bits
ol subscriptions tbat makes it possible for the Herald to publish one
of tlie best weeklies in the province
and to increase, what is already the
ow by tbe opening of spring, but   I! largest    circulation   of   any weekly

mountain district as well as at the

lumbermen held in Vancouver, the
.,i uiat ion was thoroughly discussed,
ami from reports received the Herald
, .n lined to believe that the lumber dealers of the Northwestern
States may again attempt to dump
tbeii surplus product Into Western
Canada next spring. Such action
would mean a complete demoralization of the lumber business in British Columbia, and the consequent
xuia of oue of the most important
industries of the province. The fact
is tbat millions of dollars are at
stake on the outcome of this proposition, rig'hl here in British Columbia,
and also the welfare, yes, even tbe
fety existence of thousands of workingmen, and it is time; tight     now,

as huntsmen on the Nile.
"Too   late, too    late,    to save him,
to late in vain we tried,
Fighting for those who loved hiui, a

This was followed by some twenty
works until "Street Dust," her last
book was published iu 1901. Hcc
last years were spent in Italy, in

Premier McBride has been placed n.
a rather embarrassing position     b>
the bringing down of the correspondence     between    Lieutenant-Governor
