tu many of whom, no doubt, tin- personnel ol its directorate uud manage*
ment are known
Starting,operations In 1807, with a
small mill ut Cranhrook, lie , under
tlu* name ami stylo of Tin- Cranbrook
Lumber Company, Limited, wilh the
late Mr. Archibald Lelteh, a lumberman of wide and varied experience, as
inanager, the mill capacity and work
inn force    at their  command,   wore
soon taxed to the     utmost  tu meet
the ever Increasing demand for     the
manufactured   product o[ the practically    virgin   forest, id   whieli they
lu-ld a large and   will timbered aire,
in elose proximity to their saw mill.
In 1899 a seven* blow was sustained by the loss of thc mill ami entire
plant at    Cranbrook by fire,     Nolli
ing daunted,   however, and with   his
characteristic    energy,    Mr. Leitch,
hardly walling tor tin- embers nf the
fire to    cool, at once made arrangements for the erection ot a new mill,
und within a few   Weeks sawing wus
resumed    with    a larger and belter
equipped plant than before,    To such
purpose uml such energy did the management exert    themselves, that, in
the   course    uf a few  years several
temporary    mills    hud been erected,
large and   valuable tracts nf   timber
acquired, and   the operations oi   the
company Increased to such an pxtenl
as to   necessitate re-organlzatlon on
a larger scale.     In 1002 this wus rd
feeied by   the   formation of the present comfbny, With Mr. Leitch again
at the helm.      Sawmills, with theli
attendant holdings,    were purchased
at Moyie and .lafliny, ami in |0O1 an
additional sawmill was erected      at
Uyan. thirty-five miles wesi tM Cran
brook.     In lflft7 lire again destroyed
llm plant ui     Cranhrook, the offices
and stalT being    transferred lu .Ial
fray, at     which polnl the headquai
ters of the company have since     re
malncd,     A small mill tV4s put iu at
Loco, about six miles mil nl    Cranbrook, lo ileal up the timliei remain
ing iu tlmt district.
The phim at ilndra; consists ol
one double cutting band mill and
planing mill, with a i.i na. 11 x ol
1)0,000 feel pel day, situated on the
margin ol a small natural lake,
which serves the purpose ol ponding

The mill ai Loco is a rotary, with
a dnil) capacltj of 10,000 reel. There
are no storage facllllles for ihe lumhei, which is shipped as fast us
The  Ityan     plalil   is   also composed
ni a rotor)  mill, with a capacity of
811,  feet    per iluy.    This mill    is
also kept busy during the season iu
filling orders ror timber uml other
lines of lumlier which arc constantly
pouring iu from railway companies,
provincial governments, firms und Individuals. Kxcclleiii driving [acuities nre available here by the Movie
river, un which this mill is situated.
Being located on lhe main line of
life Crows Nest branch in each case,
with excellent natural advantages iu
addition to good trackage, there is
every prospeel for a bright future lo
encourage thc administration.
The present holding of the company comprise about one hundred
thousand acres, with an estimated
total of 1,000,000,000 feel of saw
limber, all of wliich is of easy access
lo suitable streams or railway nc-
commodatfon, During the sawing
season the daily output for ten hours
Of the three mills now in operation
is 160,000 feel, and the company are
contemplating the erection of a large
iml up lo-tlalt- mill und plant on thc
hunks uf the Knolenuy river a few
miles west of Jaffray.
During the sawing season a force of
miij live hundred men is maintained,
wilh an average monthly payroll of

in almost similar outlay, when log-

of Canada
The prospective early establish men I
in this city of u wholesale grocery
house, as announced in last week's
Herald, has called forth a great deal
of comment, altogether favorable Ui
such a departure
Representatives ol wh ilesulc
houses, who visit t'ranbrook regularly, express the unqualified opinion
that such a move is bound to result
favorably. They are of the opinion
that Cranbrook is the logical distributing center of iho entire Kast Kootenay district and some of them do
not hesitate to say lhat once the
wholesale grocery Is in operation
there will be no more need for thom
to visit this section.
In another direction Cranbrook is
rapidly branching out and from present indications the time is nol far
distant when this city will he the
headquarters ol an extensive whole
sale nnd retail men's clothing manufactory*

The markel will be bo good thai wc

There Is not In history a single II
lustration of a nation giving up Its
identity as the result of increasing
trade relations with nn adjoining
people Hut tn this ease, the opponents ol better trade relations with
the United States assert, tho two
peoples are very intimately connected
by lies of race, language, ami com
mon Institutions, as well as geographically, and therefore the power ot
mutual attraction Is unusually great
ami is likely to prove irresistible.
The Olobo does not believe a word of
this, and while Indisposed to retort
in kind against those who see a
traitor tn every advocate of the
agreement, does got believe that the
Journalists who advance the annex a
tion bugaboo themselves believe what
tbey are suying
The whole fiscal history of Canada
dunng tin* forty-three years thai
have passed since Confederation
proves that It is not trade that holds
us to the empire, hut the conviction
of the people ol Canada that thc empire is theirs as much a** it Is the
empire ot the home-dwelling Briton,
if trade la what is holding us tn the
empire an) mathematician can tell
ns Jusl how long wc are going to
remain Hritish        Here an- the data
upon which tl aleulation maj    bo
based In I8i3, the tirst year after
Confederation in which full returns
were available, Caaada Imported
Irom Britain goods to thc value    ol
10(1,582,  and     i sported goods ta
thc value ol * 18,743,0(10 to Oreal
Britain In thc same year she Im

exported 512,073,000 Ten years Ial
er the imports Irom Britain had dc
creased to (153,052,000 ami the ei-
ports had Im reaaed lo *17,1 15,000.
In the same yeai lhe Impoi is from
thc United States had Increased t i
■ .j*.j'. 1,000,     while   the exports had
shrunk to JI 1,(108,1      This tendon

there was much talk ol annexation

a relative decline ol csports to the

is, . 80 per cent nf Canada's Imports Irom Britain ami (ho United

rim tins mark bad shrunk to about
tn pet rent nf lhe total imports
coming from these two countries, the
figures heing 105,550,000 from (Ireat
Hritain and $223,501,000, The exports to (ireat Hritain last year

Stales $118,150,000.
These figures imlleale thai tbe
trade with the railed States lasl

wns over ninety millions more than

allegiance goes with onr trade, we
should he rapidly becoming a mil ion
of annexationists. That Is precisely
the argument of the opposition press.
Ilui what is the toot? At no time

As trade relations with the I'nited
States have increased and have he
mine  more   intimate there bun been
I less and h-ss talk of political union,
Kvery Canadian who knows anything
of thc eurrents ot publie opinion in
the Dominion knows this to be true.
What, then, ean we think of tho sin

Discussed in Legislature
ll   (      BREWSTER,   M I. \    KOH
In the legislature lasi week the
Tom majority attempted to put
through a resolution condemning thc
Fielding reciprocity measure, Although Ihf only Liberal in the house,
Mr. H. C. Hrewster, Ml. A Un A\
herui, did not hesitate to lake up
ihe cudgels in behalf nf thu measure
and made u very effective speech in
reply lo W 11. lluyward, the mover
of the resolution, and to linn. Price
Rlllson, the new linanee minister
Mi Hrewster, on thi- reciprocity
resolution, said be approached     the
question with u great deal of dilli-
ileiicc, it being nne of sinh magnitude
and so far-reaching in its effect. Ho
Could only give his personal views on
the matter, rather than put forth
auy policy which might or should be
adopted by any political parly. In
the east great -difference of opinion
prevailed ns to the merits ol Ihe
matter among members nf both parties. Conservatives nnd Liberals
were taking opposition views, men
in both parties supporting or opposing it. Kven in British Columbia,
and within that house, there were
Conservatives wbo considered Unit

nil had.
The former treaty, existing from

to bring about reciprocity; in 1k;o

had tried to secure u reciprocity
agreement, and did away effectively
with the assertion of the minister oi

things which only a Liberal government would, and which with a Con
H-rvative government in power would
not be done. The matter wa-i now
in the position where tne government
of Canada had to consider it in all
its phases. There was a great ileal
of sounding brass in the Conserve
lives opposition to the arrangements
arrived at between the two countries. The Conservative party whet,
in power, had advocated reciprocity
uud tried to cultivate reciprocal

would have acted wisely to have

opposing a policy when his own par

been in favor of it.
Time after time   Canada had made
overtures to the I'nited States with
a view of securing reciprocity, bul
every time its commissioners    came
back without effecting anything, Hm

We Are Not Malodorous Lawyers,
Trouble-Breeders and Parasites
But Sawyers of Wood and Founders
of Honest Industries ::::::
Wt* uie not political lieolors, haagors-on nml sycophants ol grasping Railway Corporations
V.V aro nol dissolute politicians, tin* rosldlum or spawn of Ottawa, neither are we alraul
to orltlclso even a Judge when ho prostitutes liis high offltc to sntisly petty personal spite.
Oui* mission is constructive, those Indicated destructive and Inimical to public weltart.
Wo give value* I.r money   received.      Arc nny of those guilty of that!
We Make Wood Pipes For Irrigation
which hencflts Industries.    Uut make no pipes to tap tho   public collcrs.     We carry our
lumber in thc yard and keep il ready lnr utilities.     Unlike   some lawyers   wbo      carry
■ theirs nn their shoulders, the utility being undlscoverahlc.
We Make Lumber, Sashes, Doors, Furniture, Wood
Pipes, Raise Live Stock, Make the Wilderness
Blossom and Produce, Our Clients Satisfied,
Our Deserving Employees Contented
Partners In Our Success
What do the parasites indicated do ? They give no quid pro quo other than Insolence,
deception nnd oppression tainted with the vlndlctivcness ol political spleen. The sullerers helpless, slider because tliey know nnt their sovereign power, hut Nemesis will be awakened and
woe to the culprits. 'Even ERMINE WILL NOT SAVE THEM.
SomejLawyers Are Honorable, Many Judges Upright, Painstaking and
Above Suspicion.   Such we All Venerate, Admire and Almost
Worship, Bven if They Have Small Human Weaknesses
The ermine they should wear Indicative of their purity and power, is not needed as a protection nor adornment, but ns a SYMBOL TO IMPRESS THE VENALLY CROOKED LAW-
We Struggle to Create. Build Up and Sustain Industries
Railway Corporations attempt J" straagle them In their infancy and dare to pose as
public benefactors, whilst robbing the people, burning ii|i their property, killing their cattle
and oppressing their pour employees wherever they   are not united for sell-protection.
Whilst the Parasites who Hootin inked the Representatives of the People
into giving them Ihe best part ot the country to esploit, ore by virtue ol watered stock,
fatted multl-milllonalres rolling In luxury In Palaces, Instead ol the chains, handculls, skilly
and wooilen couches they deserve.
Anl in the Disgraceful Exuberance of their Autocratic Assumption
tbey make the people believe with disgust and disdain, tbat (lovernments, Parliaments,
Politicians and those who sit in high places are at their beck and call. Can we wonder
thnt Nemesis will arise from bet stupor and smite the despoilers, thc robbers, who make it
so painlul for the   masses NOT TO LIVE but barely exist.
History will repeat itself, oppression, graft and corruption will perforce, sink beneath tbe
Anglo-Saxon love ot Justice and right by virtue of whieli nur rnce rules the world.
Tbe most gross injustice Is inflicted on the people nl Canada by Railway Corporations
who have been civeii millions nt acres ol land, wliich they ndvertlsc and esploit in Europe
and the United States ami poor victims pay their hard earned cash. Alter the poor beggars
raise produce, the great earning capacity of which has been over advertised, THEY FIND
THAT IT IS IMAOINARY, and further, that they arc handicapped In the transportation to
market and are al the mercy ol the great Octopus. Take as one example, freight charges
for farm produce for hauling less than MO miles to market cosls tlD.OO per ton, or more
than the value ol Iho product. The writer started out to ADVERTISE HIS PRODUCTS
AND WISHES TO SELL THEM to provide subsistence Ior his people who make LUMBER,
customers require ti  and can provide security we can supply them on   easy terms.      Kor

Ami if you are oppressed by oxactloni of Railway Corporations;
(tr bale been ol  Bre being cheated by lawyers ;
