Rev. M. S. Blackburn Refutes
Assertions Made Recently
by I.B.S.A. Speaker
Speaking to a crowded congregation on Sunday evening last, nt Knox
Church, Rev. M. S. Blackburn
piled vigorously to criticisms mado of
the ministers of the established
churchos during thc recent visit to
the city of a lecturer for the International Bible Students' Association.
Why I Do Not Balicve in the
Mr. Blackburn spoke from the passage of II. Timothy 4, 3 and 4, "For
thc time will come when they will
not endure sound doctrine, but nfter
their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers having itching cars.
And they shall turn their ears away
from the truth and shall be turned
unto fables."
Mr. Blackburn then spoke as foi-
"First of all let me say that I believe that there are some good points
in the system of doctrine promulgated
by the people of the so-called "International Bible Students' Association, just as there are grains of truth
in almost everything. Let me also
say, as I have often sai(l before, that
the church, the ministry, and the congregations are not perfect — never
nave been and never will be until
our Lord takes her unto Himself.
Again let me say that thOBe who
criticise her are not just perfect
either. There is only one person who
is in a position to criticize her and
that is her founder—the blessed,
matchless, peerless son of God who
bought her and paid for her with His
own blood.
"The founder of "Russellism" or
the International Bible Students' Ab.
soclation was one Charles T. Russell,
who was first heard of selling shirts
in Alleghany, Pa. He lectured on
religious subjects and got a considerable following, and after a time sold
out his five men's furnishing stores
which he owned and devoted his time
to preaching his peculiar religious
doctrines. He never attended the
higher schools of learning, knew
comparatively nothing about philosophy, systematic theology and was entirely ignorant of the languages used
in writing the Old and New Testament. He was never ordained and
had no church connection. He gave
himself the title of 'pastor' and from
thii many are.led to believe that he
was an ordained minister of the gospel. Upon a certain visit which he
made to Toronto he announced himself 'president' of the so-called International Bible Students' Association. Some of his publications have
been and are known as 'Zion's Watch
Tower,' 'Millennial Dawniam,' and
one which is better known as 'Studies
in the Scriptures.'
Tbe Libel Cue
"When a mere boy in Ontario 1
can well remember the consternation
and furore which n certain libel case
coming up before the Hamilton police
court caused. On December 2nd,
1912, Mr. Russell issued a summons
against a certain Dr. J. J. Ross, pastor of James Street Baptist Church,
Hamilton. Ont. On December Oth,
the case came up before Magistrate
George H. Jelfs. lt wus nt that
time thrown out, but came up again
on February 7th, 11113. This time
Mr. Russell failed to put in nn appearance and through the application
of Mr. George Lynch Staunton. K.C.
the case was enlarged in order to secure the presence ef Mr. Russell for
cross-exnniinntion. 1 cannot give
details here, but in the time needed
to get the case arranged for the court
Dr. Ross received communication or
wns informed by Mr. S. F. Washing
ton, K.C, counsel for Mr. Russell.

The death took place on Thursduy

seven weeks, heart disease being the
ultimate cause of death. The deceased lady waa fifty-eight years old,
und was a native of Klk Mound, Wis.

daughter, Miss Laura Berg, of this
city. Mrs. G. Thompson, of this city,
is another daughter, while John J.
Nelson, of this city, is a brother of
the late Mrs. Berg.
Sunday last the funeral took place
from the United Church, when the
relatives and a large number of
friends of the deceased gathered to
pay their last respect to her whose
passing they were mourning. The
service was conducted by Rev. B.
Wallace, whose address was one of
much comfort to the sorrowing
friends present. With reference to
the deceased, he took occasion to refer to the Christian fortitude which
he knew to be one of her characteristics. Favorite hymns of the late
Mrs. Berg were sung at the service.
Following the service at the
church, a large number followed to

A number of important develop

for 1927. The most outstanding of

The completion of the Banff-Windermere highway, which wan opened
for traffic in June 1923, brought
about a much heavier motor traffic
to the Canadian Rockies. It enabled
the motorists to pass through the
two national reservations, the Rocky
Mountains and Kootenay parks,
crossing the main range by way of
the Vermilion pass, and for the first
time established direct communication in this area between East and
From Castle mountain, near which
the Banff-Windermere highway turns
south, an extension of about 20 miles
waa built, at practically the same
time, to beautiful Lake Louise, and
the already existing road from this
point to Moraine lake was brought
up to the requirements of motor
traffic. Once at Lake Louise, however, the motorist was less than five
miles from the Great Divide, the famous Kicking Horse pass and the eastern edge of Yoho park.
To bridge this gap, in 1926, the
government completed and opened
•he first section of the new Kicking

Early this season the final work
will be completed on the second section of the road, that from V\m\d to
the west boundary of Yoho park,
near Leanchoil, British Columbia, a
distance of about twenty-one miles.
The importance of this new section
lies not so much in the fact that it
completes the traverse of Yoho park,
aa because at Leanchoil it will connect with the new provincial highway, sixteen miles long, from Golden
through the Kicking Horse canyon.
Aa all who have crossed the western
mountains by way of the main line
it the Canadian Pacific railway will
remember, one of the most spectacular portions of the route is the passage of this canyon, the narrow cleft
over ten miles long through which the
Kicking Horse river has cut its way
to the wide valley of the Columbia.
The views along this section of the
highway which clings to the side of
the canyon at altitudes ranging from
500 to BOO feet, would be hard to
surpass for grandeur and sustained
Emerging from the Rockies the
new highway runs to Golden. There it
connects with the existing road to the
south along the Columbia valley.
This road may be followed to lnvermere, Windermere and southern
points connecting with the United
States and Pacific coast; or at Fir-
lands, 67 miles from Golden, connection may be made with the western
end of the Banff-Windermere highway, returning over that road to
Banff and completing the new moun
tain circle.
"Cany the News" Mission Band
of the United Church held their Easter thunk offering meeting on Tuesday afternoon in the schoolroom, to
which parents and friends of the
children were  invited.
The meeting was opened by devotional exercises taken by the older
members of the band. This was followed by business periods and the
reading of the reports. Forty-five
members responded to the roll call.
The collection was then taken up
and amounted to $26,50. Included
in this was a Mission Band life membership for the secretary. Miss Peggy
A splendid program of twelve
numbers, including songs, recitations and piano solos, was given by
the children, closing with the hymn
"Jesus wants me for a sunbeam," and
all members joining in a Mission

The forty visitors present were
then asked to come to tea tables,
where the girls served them with
dainty refreshments.
This meeting closed a very successful year for this Band, and they
were congratulated by many of the
visitors present.

Band wish to thank their many
friends for the generous support and

Added to these attributes was the
equally important trait which she displayed with fine effect, devoid of any

perhaps ran the gamut of human
emotions. From the lighter songs to

gem. until it was revealed so perfectly by Miss Fleming. Her second
group embraced grand opera selections, in which her admirable control
and mastery of tbe theme were again
evident, ana' to this she gave 'a de-
ightful little humorous encore,
"Mister Bear." Her third group embraced three tuneful songs, including
"The Builder," by Cadman, for which
Miss Fleming was accorded the most
enthusiastic applause of the evening,
and her encore in this case was a
pretty love ballad, "I Love You
Truly." The closing number of her
last group was also a noteworthy selection, "Open the Gates of the
Temple," a pretentious piece which
gave fine scope for her unusual powers of musical interpretation.
That Miss Fleming is not the only
talented member of the family was
apparent, however, from the elocutionary numbers given by Mr. C. S.
Fleming, of Moyie, her brother,
whose two groups of readings were
but little less appreciated than the
music of her sister. It was hard for
the audience to let Mr. Fleming go,
especially after his rendering of
"Goodbye, Little Cabin," which was
thought to be the best cf his numbers, though ail were of an unusually
high standard. Mr. Fleming also introduced his sister, and gave a short
history of her musical career to the
present time.
Other numbers given as interludes
consisted of piano solos by Master
Herbert Potter in fine concert style,
and well maintaining the high standard of the evening's program. The
first number of this young performer
was "Mazurka Fantastique," by
Krentzlin, given in a bold and dashing style, marked with rhythm and
precision, while for an encore which
was persistently called for, he gave
a lively hobgoblin descriptive piece,
"In a Cave."
Due credit for the accompaniments
for Miss Fleming should be given to
Miss Alma Sarvis, who has in the
past proved herself equal to unusually exacting requirements as an accompanist, and on this occasion certainly contributed the finishing
touches to Miss Fleming's recital.
It was no light task, and to say it
was ably carried out is not merely
voicing a platitude.
Mr. F. H. Buck, the president of
the Young People's Society, presided
during tbe evening, and due to the
generous patronage, it is satisfactory
lo record that even with a very moderate admission, the proceeds were
sufficient to refute the idea sometimes given expression to, that musical talent does not always get the
■ upport it ia entitled to here.

True Distinction
ul Chevrolet
evrolet History rV
KOOTENAY   GARAGE    -    Cranbrook
NOT merely to provide an economical means of transportation has been the aim in the malting of the Most Beautiful
Chevrolet — but to produce a car, at low price, which would
satisfy the motorists' liner tastes.
True distinction is evident in every line of the Fisher-Built
Bodies of the Most Beautiful Chevrolet in Chevrolet History.
Refinement and good taste are reflected in the new Duco colorings—in the rich, luxurious upholsteries—in the handsome new
radiator design—in the massive full-crown fenders—in thc fine-
quality hardware—in the completeness of the appointments.
As there is the quality of the thoroughbred in the appearance of
the Most Beautiful Chevrolet in Chevrolet History, so there is
the same quality in its performance. New refinements, added
to the smooth, powerful Chevrolet engine (the New A.C. Air
Cleaner and Oil Filter, for example) offer definite assurance of
longer life, better operation and greater economy.
The Most Beautiful Chevrolet in Chevrolet History is now selling at NEW and LOWER PRICES—the lowest for which
Chevrolet has ever been sold in Canada.

transportation and rates between
these points for this year, the Automobile Club of British Columbia, at

ell'ect to the Dominion government

Following representations made by
advocators of two routes, the Revel-
stoke-Golden and Knmloops-Jasper
alternatlve, the Vancouver branch

In forwarding the resolution to the

lnvermere, B.C., March 17th.—A
quiet wedding was solemnized Thursday afternoon at -3 o'clock, when
Ethel Mary, younger daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. T. W, Turner, of "The
Beavers," Wilmer, was united in
marriage to Oswald Paul (Bobs) Su-
termeister, son of the late Rev. P.
Sutermeister, pastor of the Established Church, Berne, Switzerland, and
Mrs. Sutermeister. of Montreux,
The bride, dressed in a becoming
gown of cream, silk flat crepe, and
carrying a lovely boquet of roses and
double white tulips, was given in
marriage by her father. Rev.
K. F, Thompson. M.A., pastor of the
United Chureh, officiated at the ceremony.
Her only attendant wns her sister,
Mis. Harry Saunders, of Vernon,
B.C., who donned for the occasion a
smart one-piece dress of shot-rayon
taffeta, and carried a spring-like
bouquet of daffodils and tulips. As
Mr. Sutermeister's hrother, of Glei-
chen, Alberta, was unable to be
present, the bride's brother, Frank,
undertook  the  duties  of  best  man.
Before her marriage, the bride
had been an active worker in the
Girl Guides, having been in charge
of the "Brownies,'" and also in the
Girl's Auxiliary of Christ Church. lnvermere. Both these organizations
gave farewell presentations to the
bride  before  her wedding.
The wedding music was played by
Miss Dora K. Bodecker, captain of
the Girl Guides, who carried out the
wishes of the bride by playing the
Greig wedding music.
The honeymoon will be spent in
Calgary, a large number of friends
being at the station to speed them
on their way to their new home at
Crossfield, Alberta.
As the bride has grown up in "The
Valley," her parents being among
the first settlers on the C.V.I, lands
at Wilmer, she was remembered with
numerous tokens of good-will and
esteem, and the best wishes for her
future go with her from a large
circle of friends.

For a long time past the Dominion
Government Experimental Station
here hus been giving much attention
to the selecting and breeding of
garden peas, for the raising of which
the local soil seems peculiarly adapted. During the past year, superintendent R. Gladwyn Newton. B.S.A..
.-ays three of the selections have
shown their superiority over many
standard varieties, not only here, but
at many of the Experimental Stations across the Dominion. These
three varieties have been named respectively "Bruce." after Hon. R.
Randolph Bruce; "Kootenay," after
the division of British Columbia
where the generating Experimental
Station is situated, and "Director,"
as a compliment to the head of the
Experimental Farms. A test of the
quality of these three varieties was
made for three years under similar
conditions alone w'th five other well
known varieties of peas. The results
show that they did in that time produce a much heavier weight of peas
in the row on an average, also a
larger quantity of shelled peas than
any of the five competitors of the
three kinds named.
Practically all snow has gone from j

gist, reputed to have made impurlant
discoveries in connection with ore
reduction which were said to have
been put to use at Swansea, Wales,
and later with experience in the
Broken Hill district in Australia, was
the originator of the process, to develop and apply which the French
Complex Ore Reduction company.was
formed, with headquarters at Nelson,
about 1911 or 1912, and nt that time
with chiefly Nelson capital.
Thc   Platinum   Ruih
Reputed discoveries of Mr. French
in connection with the slimes of the
Gianite-Poorman mill, on Eagle
creek, four miles west of Nelson,
gave rise to the "platinum rush"
there, which had a furore of some
years, the city permitting Mr. French
to experiment with slimes, in a plant
on Cottonwood creek.
Both the Dominion and provincial
governments helped the French Complex Ore Reduction company with
grants, and Mr. French made use of
the old zinc smelter in Fairview. Tho
Consolidated company also lent him
facilities at Trail, where he was for
several months.
When Mr. French, originator of
the process, died, he was succeeded
by his son, Thomas French, who carried on the work for some years.
The Consolidated, under the general
management of R. H. Stewart, took
an option on the French process, but
did not complete the purchase, developing its own process, which is in
use on Sullivan and Slocan ores.
After the war, Hon. William Sloan,
provincial minister of mines, foreclosed on the plant at Nelson, the
province's stake in the experiments
having been approximately $100,000.
When the French Complex Ore
Reduction company started suit for
■JS,000,000, it set up the contention
that the Consolidated mnde use of its
process, and claimed that the process
was practically that company's financial salvation, as no new ore bodies
had been brought in to maintain the
company's tonnage for its smelter nt
Pateaande Weat to Europe
Several times during the past two
years. S. G. Blaylock. general manager of the Consolidated, and J. O.
Patennude, of Nelson, a director of
the French company, hnve gone to
Montreal for examinations and to
give testimony. In addition. Mr.
Patenaude made a trip to Europe to
study processes of zinc reduction.
It has always been assumed thut
whichever way the decision in either
of these cases went, it would be appealed.
Montreal—The exchequer court recently rendered judgment in favor
of the plaintiff in the case of the
Electrolytic Zinc company against
the French Complex Ore Reduction
compuny. The plaintiff questioned
the patent, alleged to be held
by the defendant company and involving a process of ore refining.
The defendants in rebuttal held tho
patent was theirs, and that the plaintiff company was using it without
their  consent.
The defendants had previously taken action for dumages against The
Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
of ('anada, of which the Electrolytic
Zinc Company is a subsidiary, placing
the damnge alleged to have been
through the infringement of the patent, at $8,000,000. The latter case
has been in the supreme court of
Quebec for nearly two years.

SIGNIFICANT, indeed, uf the- growing conviction
that the general health of a community is
a matter of vital concern to each and every individual, that it is an important business factor in industry aud that it affects everything from taxes to
personal happiness, is the announcement of a meeting which will shortly he held at Ottawa.
The Canadian Social Hygiene Council will
shortly gather, called with the sanction of the Minister of Health, lion. Dr. J. II. King and the Governor-General. Among those taking part in the discussion, will In* Sir Arthur Currie, chairman of the
board, and Mr. Justice Riddell, of Toronto, the
president. Others of its members arc found among
thc Dominion's leading financiers, tlte heads of the
two great railway systems, medical authorities, educationists, leaders in the industrial and business
The home—and uot the school—is the proper
place for the teaching of sex hygiene. Harm, as
well as good, is almost invariably done by lecturers
who address classes of hoys or  girls  in  schools.
This, in brief, is the general opinion from one
end of the Dominion to the other, as revealed by a
census carried out by the Canadian Social Hygiene
Council. Floods of doubtful literature on tbe newsstands, the obvious eagerness of certain types ol
persons to purchase this stuff, aud a variety of
other factors*, all combine to force this subject inlo
the forefront anil make tbe matter of the school's
relation to sex hygiene one which demands the
attention of every official educational hoard in the
Though showing very strongly that direct instruction of this sort in schools seems inadvisable
and tbat the responsibility should rest on the shoulders of the parents, the residts of the survey also
indicate that the school teacher is a necessary and
valued ally. Nature study, elementary biology and
literature, especially biography, have been proved
to be invaluable aids. The importance of games as
an antidote for unhealthy thoughts has been more
and more realized iu recent years. Finally, just as
the stem parent of fifty years ages has been replaced
by the comrade father of today, so is the teacher
becoming more the comrade of his pupils.
Through these means and by setting an example of healthy manhood or womanhood, the results of thi- research show the school has its real
opportunity to help tbe rising generation, not, it
may be repeated, by any attempt nt direct tuition
of sex hygiene.
SOMFHODY ought to be taken to task for lapses
of this kind. Capt. J, T. Shaw, Liberal leader
in the Alberta legislature, who was a speaker here
last summer in the interests of Dr. King's election,
must have forgotten tbat B.C. has had a Liberal
government for a few years past, of which Dr. King
himself was an esteemed member for a considerable
time. Capt. Shaw was criticizing the provincial
debt.of Alberta under the Farmer regime, and was
naturally not speaking iu a commendatory way.
"Why," he said in effect, if not in these actual words,
"Alberta is but little better than B.C. in respect to
its provincial debt." Me then proceeded to show
that B.C., where his owu Liberal principles have
held sway for some time, was the possessor of tbe
heaviest per capita «lebt of all the provinces, quoting
it as $8.16 per capita here, as against $6.09 in Alberta, and for one dollar for Manitoba.
NOW, through the revealations of the commission
investigating the campaign contributions of
the liquor interests in recent years, it is established
tbat there are no parties immune from the support
of John Barleycorn. Whereat there will be those
who will arise with indignation of varying degree
and say this proves what they have thought all
along—that all politics are rotten—though it does
not do anything of thc kind. The fact that all
parties, Liberal, Conservative, Labor and Provincial,
have now heen proved to have accepted campaign
contributions from thc brewing interests simply indicates that those iu charge of raising the necessary
funds have taken the linc of least resistance in raising what was necessary for a legitimate purpose,
and accepted contributions from some sources they
fondly hoped would never come to light. Yet, however questionable the sources of these funds may be,
what would seem to matter more is the purpose
these funds were put to in carrying on the campaigns iu question, and whether any quid pro quo
was involved ill their acceptance.
CANADA was never more prosperous than just
before the outbreak of war, when immigration
to her shores was at its peak. Canada's volume of
new settlers in 1926 was just about one-half of what
it was ill 1913, just prior to the interruption to the
swelling movement, lt is confidently hoped that
the volume of immigration in 1927 will be about
one-half of lhe greatest pre-war aggregate. The
rising tide of immigration has brought with it
steadily improving economic conditions. When
immigration has again been stimulated to the point
it reached in VH3. Western Canada can expect to
resume its agricultural development on the scale
at which it was broken off at that tillie.

Reply Made to Strictures
(Continued from Page One)
lhat if he (Ross) would render a
mild apology, ho (Russell) would drop
legal proceedings at once. This offer was repeated by Russell himself,
but on both occasions Dr. Ross refused. The words of Dr. Ross's refusal I now quote verbally: "I have
carefully noted its contents—that is,
the letter—and in reply I wish to say
that 1 have no apology to offer, and
no promise to make as to the future,
and I calmly await the decision of the
Canadian court of law." On March
17th, 1913, Mr. Russell was. cross-
examined. Anyone who knows anything about theology knows that in
order to understand the books of the
Old and New Testaments wns a view
to placing upon them an interpretation, ought, to say the least, know
something about the original languages. In he court Mr. Russell wns
asked if he knew Greek. He answered "Oh, yes." He was handed a
copy of the New Testament in Greek,
compiled by Westeott & Hort, which
every student of theology knows, and
asked to read the letters of the alphabet, and he did not know even the
alphabet. Many of his followers are
in the same category and yet these
are the men who nre going around
the country denouncing the churches
and everybody else who is not nn International  Bible  Student.
"One of the chief witnesses brought
forward by the defence was Mra.
Charles T. Russell, whose maiden
name was Miss Marie P. AcMey, and
who divorced him because he had not
been true to his mnrringe vow und
because he had treated her cruelly.
Mrs. Russell's evidence is given in a
little booklet entitled "Some Pacts
and More Pacts About the Self*
Styled 'Pastor' Charles T. Russell."
1 cannot give them here — they nre
not adapted to pulpit language, but
if anyone desires n copy or copies
of this little book I shull be only too
glad to get them for you.
"Furtlier, he was charged with defrauding his wife of her dower interest, with making statements that
he had preached to vast audiences to
whom, when the truth wns known, he
had not spoken a word; nnd last thnt
I shall mention—of selling 'miracle
wheat' which he bad blessed, for $60
per bushel. This wheat in its turn
was to yield possibly sixty or a hundred-fold.
"This, my  friends, is one  renson
why I do not believe in the International Bible Students' Association.
Thc Prophetic Utterance*
"In this connection I am almost
verbally quoting Frank Ballard, D.D.,
M.A., B.Sc, of London England:
'It will be news to most people, whether believers or unbelievers, that the
second coming of Jesus Christ definitely happened in 1874; thnt in 1878
the dead in Christ rose first; that in
the same year nil the divine disfavor
of the Jews ended, nnd there begun
a period of fnvor which culminated
in 1914. That further in 1878 'the
spring of that year marked the date
when nominal church systems,' i.e.
the ordinary Christian churches of
todoy 'were spewed out' so that 'from
that time they aro not tho mouthpiece
of God, nor in nny degree recognized
by Him.* Is this true? I ask* you to
use your common sense and answer
the question yourself.
"That further, in October, • 1881,
the 'special fnvor to the Gentiles, to
become joint heirs with Christ and
partakers  of divine  nature'  closed;
'that Babylon,' that is, ordinary
Christianity, felt; the days of vengeance' arrived — 'a time of trouble
such as there was not since there was
a nation.'
"Furthermore, that between 11)10
and 1912 the 'greut time of trouble
began,' culminating with the end of
the 'Gentiles' times' in October, 1914.
"Still further, that in 1914 the
Jews were received into full divine
favor; the kingdoms of this world'
came to a 'final end' whilst Christ's
kingdom wns fully established. In n
word, 1914 ushered in the millennium
und ull the kingdoms of the world
became the kingdoms of the returned,
invisible Christ.
'That year was 'the farthest limit
of the rule of imperfect men,1 so that
the kingdom of God obtained 'full
universal control and was set up on
the ruins of present institutions.'
"It is important to note thut with
the arrivul of 1914 this—according
*.o Russellism—cnme to pass:—In harmony with all the rest, is the statement of scripture that the first work
of Christ in connection with His millennial reign will be to bind or restrain Satan, that he shall deceive
the nntions no more for u thousnnd
"So that nlthough Sutan may hnve
been loose—most people will think
so — when the Germans wrought
their unutterable devilries in Belgium, he was bound when the same
villains deliberately murdered nil the
innocents on board the Lusitnnia.
Again I ask you to use vour reason
and see for yourself just what their
phophecy umounts to when put to
the practical test.
"This, my friends, is another reason why I do not believe in the International Bible Students' Association.
Their Propaganda
They advertise their meetings and
most always sny: 'Seats Free — No
Collection.' Have they changed from
the 'Pastor' Russell methods of days
gone by? I doubt it. Listen — Dr.
J. .1. Ross says thut at the time of
his writing the pamphlet or book
from .which I draw this material, the
•Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society was the financial headquarters
Tor the International Bible Student,*.
Into this, as he says in quoting Rus
sell, 100,000 strong pay their money
I hnve relatives in the eity of Van*
((.uver who have told me that though
they take no collection, yet they pay
in regularly. According to the Cranbrook Herald the speuker in the K.P.
Hull on the evening of March Oth
aid that the minister were paid to
work one day in thc week and loll
around the other six. We nre the
paid clergy. The inference Is that
he, thc speaker, is not paid- Does
anv mnn believe thnt n human being
cun exist without money and nt the
same time travel all over thc country? Is the great C.P.R. so interested in thc Intornntionnl Bible Students thnt they can travel nil over
the country preaching doom and destruction, while thc other members
of the clergy have to pay at least
half-fare? Of course, we nre
hypocrites and hirelings, so perhaps
the C.P.R. thinks we are half-witted
and therefore we should pay half-
"According to the above mention-
«.*<i speaker ministers have nothing else
tu, do through thc week but lol)
around. Doubtless we lose u lot of
time just the same as other people
do in the ordinary routine of life
My friend who is *o good at condemning other  men  and  women  to  the
scrap-heap just because they do no-
see us he sees, ought to remember
that the ordinary and average minister has two sermons to prepare every
week, besides the many other calls
that must be attended to. If we were
like him, with one sermon—for he
has announced the same'subject in
muny of the places where he visited
previous to his coming here —- we
•jould easily uir our views and pass
on to a new audience, and there
peddle the sume old material.
"As to the women's organizations
within the church — well, they have
their faults, just as Mr. J. B. Sample
tius his faults, but I say God strengthen the arms of the women workers of
our churches. Looked at from the
point of view of a gentleman, they
nre fur above mere 'gossiping associations.' The women of the churches
hould remember this ungentlemanly
tatement of Mr. J. B. Sample.   ,
"Here, then, are some more rea-
ons why I do not believe in the International Bible Students' Association.
Regarding the nature of the criticism offered by Mr. J. 11. Sample,
Mr. Blackburn guve the following
quotation from one of the I.B.S.A.
"As we proceed to set forth our
understanding of the symbols of the
Revealation, we wish to state most
i-mphutically that wc are stating nothing whatever against ~odly Christians anywhere, at any time, whether
in uny church or out of anv church.
We huve nothing to say respecting
people. We discuss principles, doctrines, alwuys; individuals, never!
(iod has not commissioned us to discuss people; it is ours to discuss His
Interpretation and Translation
"Before I stop I think it is necessary
lo make some reference to the ide&>
concerning translation und exegesis,
ulso the warning given to all. Dr.
Ballard says in reference to the
critical display of the International Bible Students as given by Mr.
Russell, Revelation 20:5: "the rest
of the dead lived not again until the
thousand years were finished." The
I.B S.A. take many statements of
scripture literally, so this passage
says the rest of the dead lived not
again until thc thousand years were
finished, yet Dawnism insists that th*:
earth's dead are being gradually recreated during the whole period from
1914-1924. The founder of the
movement tried to make the Bible
fit his theory by saying that these
words in Rev. 20, verse 5, are spurious and nre not in the oldest Greek
manuscript, while such scholars as
Lnchmann, Tichendorf, Tregelles,
Wcscott and Hort, and many, other
world renowned teachers of Greek,
include it. It is finally brought
down to this, then, that either we
must take the testimony of world re
nowncd scholars whose business it It
to read and interpret the original
language of the New Testament, or
tnke that of 'Pastor* Russell, who
'■ould not even read the Greek alphabet.
"The doctrine of. God which the
church has, in general, held is that
of a tri-unity. Russell dismissed
this idea with the words: 'It Is merely
trinitnrian nonsense.'»
"I could go on giving the points
of difference in system of doctrine
upheld by the followers of the late
'Pastor ' Russell, but time will not
permit me to do so. In closing I
shnll throw out this warning; That
which has been held as essential
points uf doctrine by the church was
also hold by tb* Apostle Pan! ami lis

* Doings  of  Pythian   People ',
More than $120,000,000 has been
distributed by tbe Knights of Pythias
luring the last half century to care
for Pythian widows, educate orphans',
provide comforts for aged and invalid
members and to meet the needs of
communities devastated by flood,
;torm and mine disaster. This record,
which discloses the appropriation of
more than $2,000,000 annually, was
. ompiled from, reports made to the
Supreme Lodge covering five decades
of Pythian activities.
When this report was received by
the local lodge, Chancellor Commander W. Starritt announced that the
ecords of Crescent Lodge showed a
distribution of $2,000.00 during the
ast 10 years to welfare activities.
Analysis of the report shows a
large part of this amount raised and
distributed by the Order came from
wo sources. More than $60,000,000
■las paid by the Insurance Depart-
vunt to widows and orphans of mem-
bora,' the Subordinate Lodges dis-
itirse'd over $40,000,000 for relief of
tged und dependent members, approximately $5,000,000 wos used to
succor pttkken-communities ravaged
by storm, earthquake, mine disaster
or epidemic, the building program
ind equipment of Pythian homes required $14,000,000, and nearly a million dollars has been raised to aid
young men and women ta obtain college training and. for other welfare
In analyzing this welfare program,
no account was taken of contributions made by lodgeg. to civic and
community betterment,, or to returns
made to members of- the Insurance
Department through monthly waived
payments. In the last twenty yeara
the Department has waived twenty-
six monthly poyments and returned
t« members more than $5,000,000.
Many, lodges have fostered village
libraries, others have improved apd
donated parks and playgrounds and
given support ,to Red Cross, Near

Word from Ottawa is to the effect
that A. I. Fisher, K.C. of Fernie, has
been nppointed a commissioner to investigate charges of political partisanship preferred against government
employees in B.C. The official announcement of thi.s appointment was
mude on Friday last. Mr. Fisher is
u well known legal figure in the district and has been here many times
on professional business. He was nt
one time Liberal member for the
Fernie district in the legislature, last
sitting during the McBride government, although he has been a candidate several times since. Just what
the nature of the charges are he has
to investigate has not been learned,
but it is understood to have particular reference to dominion government employees in the Columbia district.
It was stated in the Herald last
week in connection with the Canadian
Legion that a beaten brass coal hod
had been donated by Mr. F. Parks to
the Legion Club building. This was
an error which occurred in the rush
of the last few minutes before going
to press. The donor of this very
acceptable gift should have been
given as W. E. Worden, to whom
the Legion is much indebted for a
gift which adds a good deal to the
homey appearance of the place. Mr.
Parks has offered, as stated, to provide wire fencing for enclosing the
grounds, which is also deeply appreciated by the Legion members.
The Legion received word the end
of last week to the effect that Colonel
Webb, Mayor of Winnipeg, who had
been expected to visit this city to
address the returned men, had been
called back to Winnipeg and so would
be unable to visit this city. . This intimation was received with much regret as Colonel Webb's projected
visit had been anticipated with interest by members of the Legion and
he was also expected to visit Kimberley members where some preparations had been made for his visit.

The missionary play presented by
the Baptist ladies' last evening was
a decided success. Even better than
last year's play was the comment
passed by those who had seen both.
The bright-colored costumes which
appeared in the introductory scene,
called "The Voice of the Women,"
hefped greatly in putting the audience into a missionary frame of mind
for the main play. "The Conversion
of the Honorable Mrs. Ling" then
followed in five well-balanced acts,
in which all the caste carried out
their parts most effectively. It would
be difficult to single out individual
favorites, but practically everyone
was agreed that Miss Jessie Mclnnir,
as Mrs, Ling's daughter-inllaw, play-
led a stellar mle,    Mra. A. D. Bridges, \
as the Honorable Mrs.   Ling,   waa
[splendid, as were also the missionary
ladles, Mrs, 11. K. Hinton and Mrs.
H. S, Hayes. Jliss Doris Haynes, as
"Heavenly Wisdom," the Chinese servant, wasn favorite, especially with
thc children.
Spnce will not permit comment on
.ill those taking part, but every one
oT them did well. Of course, children nre always favorites in a play,
nnd Kathleen Haynes, Willie Haynes,
and Doreen Kuhnert were as cute
as could be in their Chinese costumes.

Tlie Herald takes pleasure in publishing below the address read by
Mis. 11. A. McKowan at the meeting
of the Cranbrook Young People's Society on Tuesday evening of last
The young people of today enjoy a
number of things that were not enjoyed by the previous generation;
things that contribute to their pleasure nnd general well-being. We
have, to cite n few, the moving plc-
Lures, the telephone, gramophones,
radios nnd automobiles.
But with all our getting we stand
in danger of losing something that
is better; that contributes more to
character building than any or all
of these—the habit of reading.
Reading It Sacrificed
Few there are of the new inventions that are not the foe of the
habit of reading. The moving pictures take evenings that might often be better spent in reading. We
list' the telephone to make plans to
do everything but read. It is impossible to settle to a book with a
gramophone or radio going, und ns
for the automobile, it is the arch'
enemy of the  habit.
There is just one time to form the
habit of reading, and that is in youth.
And of all the habits that can be
formed in youth there is no other
that will yield in later life the dividends in both pleasure und profit.
It is, for one thing, an insurance
against boredom at any and all times.
Two people plan to journey from
Cranbrook to Vancouver. One looks
forward with apprehension to the
long day on the Kettle Valley train,
knowing beforehand that it is going
to be tiresome. The other looks forward to the same day with anticipation, as an opportunity to read,
uninterrupted, something that he has
been (bnging to get at.
Or we will suppose thut two people
e laid up for some weeks with
broken legs or some disability that
prevents their doing anything but
rend. The one who has never been
able to settle to reading is going to
be something of a problem to his
attendants nnd friends, whilst the
other, with n well balanced mental
diet of good books, cun count the
lime spent all on the credit side of
the  ledger.
Guidance Is Needed
Fortunate is the person who has
hud, in early years, intelligent supervision of his reading. The boy or
girl who is allowed to choose indiscriminately is very much like a child
set ut u tuble on which there
is every known variety of food and
told to help itself. It will be nothing
short of a miracle if that child chooses the food best suited to its age
and needs. Likewise, it is nothing
short of a miracle if a child, unaided,
chooses reading matter best suited
to n healthy mental growth.
Onlv through the medium of books
is it possible to become acquainted
with the best thoughts of the best
minds of all the -ages. Almost any
young person would be flattered if
they were invited to spend an evening
or a day in the company of one of
our great philosophers or statesmen
or poets. Yet he might spend that
evening or day without hearing the
great one say one worth-while word.
He (the great one) might at that
time be moved to discuss the weather,
or bis rheumatism or the high tax on
tobacco. In one of the same man's
books, on the other hund, one does
find him at his best, his most sublime.
Then, too, personal contact is possible only with those of our own
time. In books we have contact with
the great minds of every age since
a iL'cord has been kept of the sayings of men.
Mnny hundreds of years before
Christ, a man named Zoroaster
founded a religion among the Ayron
tribes. The tenets of this religion
were summed up in four words:
"Good thoughts; kind deeds," And
no four words better sum up the
Christinn  religion we follow today.
Kind deeds grow out of good
thoughts as naturally and as inevitably as a seedling grows from good
soil. And what is there, in all the
realm of human experience, so conductive to good thoughts as the reading of good books?
What To Read?
But what are the best books for
one to read? That is a question for
everyone who has reached the age of
deciding for himself. Before that
it is a problem for tenchers and parents. The boy who has shown interest in the achievements of Edison or
Luther Burbank or other figures
looming large in the public eye, and
asks "How did he get that way?'*
wunts biography. Many boys lean
toward historical romance, and almost all boys arc fond of tales of
adventure. Girls are inclined toward
hero worship. For them our unnals
hold tales of empire builders in our
modern missionaries, us well as our
Galahads; Frances Willurds, as well
us Joans of Arc. In the mental realm
as well as in the physical, a varied
diet is best.
The highest form of expression is
poetry. One whu embarks on the
study of poetry is assured of pleasure thut will lust throughout his
days, and he will not then have exhausted the subject. A subject* so
large must of necessity be divided
and sub-divided before one might accomplish anything in one short
evening, so 1 have decided to mention only some poets of Canada with
whom I have'had the pleasure of becoming acquainted.
Verse Enhances The Thought
It has been said that not everyone is open to the pleasure of* poetry; that there are those who, on hearing a thought expressed 'in poetry,
think only of how very much better
it could huve been expressed in prose.
Where this is true, it must be due
to thc lack of cultivation of a gift
thut is implanted in almost every human being; the appreciation of rythm.
and rhyme and imagery. What child
is not more thrilled at such musical
jingles as "Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross," "The rear went over
the mountain," "Polly put the kettle
on" or "Hickory Hickory Pock,"
than if the same things were said to
them in prose? It is their musical
quality thut delights him and that
makes them so easy for him to remember.
Likewise, as wc grow older, there
seems to be something about a poetic
way of saying things that stamps
them indelibly on our mind. As instance, no one can stick me on the
date of the discovery of America.
"In fourteen hundred and ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue." It
is the only date I know, and I shall
know it until I die. When I have
time for philanthropy, I shall use it
by writing couplets for all the dates
that school children must remember,
after which I shall go down to posterity us a hero along with the man
who wrote that masterpiece in verse:
"Thirty  Dnys Hath September."
The epigram in verse is perhaps
not superior to the epigram in prose,
but it seems easier to remember.
Tuke: "Birds of a Feather Flock Together." Could one say all that is
snid in that line in u prose sentence
thut would be easy to remember?
And what of these examples from
well-known modern poems: Rupert
"If I should die, think only this
of me:
There is n corner in some foreign
field thut is  forever  England."
Or  Henley's:
"Out  of the night that covers
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods there be
For  my  unconquerable  soul."
These might have been said as
well in prose, but it must bc admitted
they are said more permanently  in
The Plowing Thought
For the making of a poet two
things are necessary—-he must have
the gift of expressing his thoughts
easily, flowingly and musically. And
secondly, or perhaps firstly, he must
have some thoughts to express. Some
poems have more of the musical
quality than others. Some, In fact,
are so delightful to the ear that it
matters little what the thought expressed. That quality is uppermost
in Bliss Carmen's "Vagabond Song." ,
"There is something in the autumn
that is to my mood; i
Hint of manner, touch of mood.
And my heart is like n rhyme,      I
With the yellow and the purple and
the crimson keeping time."      i
There are poems, on the other
hand, in which the thought expressed
is so arresting that we pay little attention to the vehicle of words con-'
veying it. Such a one is "Inheritance," by Isabel Eeclestone MacKay,
of Vancouver: |
There lived a man who raised his
hnnd nnd said, I
"I will be great." |
And through a long, long life he
bravely knocked ■ '
At fame's closed gate.
A son he left, who, like his sire,
High place to win:—
Worn out he died, and, dying, left
no trace
That he had been.
He also left a son, who, without
Or planning how,
Bore the fair letters of n deathless
Upon his brow.
"Behold a genius, filled with fire
divine I"
The people cried;
Not  knowing   that   to   make   him
what he was
Two men had died.

How to Play
* *\ ■'» ■  ... «
Wynne Ferguson
One of the most difficult problems
that comet up at the bridge table Is the
proper lead when partner iim not made
a bid. Many a game and rubber is won
or lost by the opening lead, to whenever
possible try to ada to your store of
knowledge of sound opening leads. Here
it a iood example hand that wat played
in ■ recent duplicate match:
:     Y
lA      Bi
:     Z     i
Hearts —10,8
Clubt —8,6,4,2
Diamonds — Q, 6, 2
Spadet —A, Q,7,3
Z dealt and passed. A bid one diamond.
Y pasted, B bid one heart and all
passed. What it Z's proper opening
lead? Z thould lead the deuce of clubs.
The diamond opening it bad because of
A't bid. Never lead an opponent's declared suit unless you have a sure trick
in trumps The spade opening it bud
because Z holds the ace, queen and
thould wait for a tpade lead to him.
The trump lead it bad because A-B
may have a set up diamond suit and
thus be able to discard their losing
cards before Y-Z gain the lead. Never
lead trumps against a declared suit unless you hold a sure stopper in the other
three suits. Otherwise it is a very risky
proposition. As a matter of fact, the
sound lead, the deuce of clubs, is the
only lead that will wve the game.
Ant-wer to Problem No, 25
Hearts—K, 10, 7, 2
Diamonds — Q, J, 4
Spades—A, 1,8 3
No score, rubber game. If Z dealt, bid
une trump and A bid two diamonds,
what would you bid with Y's hand? Y
hut the choke nf several bids. He may
doubit two diamond* aa* tod toM>
certain of defeating the bid by two or
three tricks. Or he may bid two no-
trump and feel fairly certain of going
game. Either one of these bids Is sound
but the writer prefers the double. Y hu
tuch a powerful hand that he should
play for the big penalty for he still hat
an even chance to go game on the next
hand. Always play for the maximum
and you will win by bo doing much more
often than you will lose. Y hat two other
possible bids but neither it as sound at
the double of two diamonds or the two
no-trump bid. Y might bid two spades
or two hearts over the two diamond bid.
Of these two bid*-, two hearts are preferable to two spades. The objection to
these bids is that they do not offer at
good a chance for game at a two no-
trump bid. If you decide lo take a
chance in bidding, choose the chance
that offers tlie best returns. In other
words, play for the maximum.
Here is another interesting hand:
Problem No. 2ft
Hearts — Q, 8, 7,4
Clubs—K, 5
Diamonds — K, 9, 7,6,4
Spades — Q, 3
Hearts — A
Clubt—J, *0, 9, 6, 4, 2
Diamonds —A, 10, S
Spadts—K, 10,4
No score, first game. Z dealt aud bid
one club, a sound bid even if Z doesn't
hold top clubs. He has enough outside
strength to justify the bid. A and Y
passed and B bid one tpade. Z bid two
clubs and all pas-ied. A opened the
seven of spades. Y played the trey, B
the ace and 7. the four. B then led back
the spades, Y winning the trick with
the queen. How should Z so plan the
play that he can nuke game if the cards
are divided a certain way? There it
only one way that this it possible to tee
if you can figure it out. An analysis of
the hand will be give a in tlu* nexl artl-
A Bible Student Rapliet
Cranbrook, B.C.,
March 21, 1927.
To The Editor, Cranbrook Herald,
Dear Sir;
Being present in person nnd hearing Mr. Blackburn's address on Bible Students on Sunday last, I would
like to say there are always two sides
to a question, however small, or however great, otherwise our lawyers
would be unnecessary at times. To
the good Christian it is needless to
point out God's four great attributes
—they must know them—but one is
justice. Personally, I was very sorry
to hear a Christian defame, or rather
try to defame a dead man. Why not
have spoken to those able to defend
themselves ? To those who would
core to hear the other side I refer
them to "A great battle in the ecclesiastical heavens," us seen by a lawyer.
There will be shown a very different
Shase to miracle wheat, and also the
loss libel case, which for justice's
sake the following is "as Been by a
lawyer." Mr. Blackburn got our
prophecies sadly mixed on Sunduy
night, as he did several other remarks,
Rev. J. J. Ross, of Hamilton, Ont,,
Published a libelous pamphlet against
astor Russell. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Ross. He
evaded the officers for some time,
and even failed to keep his appointment at his, church, to prevent the
officer from taking him into custody.
Finally he was taken before Oeorge
E. Jelfs. police magistrate, on the
charge of criminal libel, and upon a
hearing he was committed for trial.
Upon motion the Superior Court
quashed the commitment because of
a technical error in the proceedings,
and Ross was again taken before the
When the case came on for hearing
the second time Pastor Russell, who
was a necessary witness, was away on
an extended trip in Panama, and
other parts of the south, filling appointments previously made, and had
no notice of the date of hearing. Mr.
Ross and his counsel tried to make
it appear that Pastor Russell was
evading the trial. As soon as Pastor
] Russell returned to Brooklyn and
heard that he was wanted he immed-
' lately notified the magistrate that he
! was ready to come to Canada. He
did go, and gave his testimony. Again
, the magistrate committed Ross to

| the grand jury. When the case came
on in that court, the judge of the
court, in charging the grand jury re.
lative to its duties, among other
{things, said to the jury: "Unless the
jury finds that his alleged libel would
cause a breach of the public peace
in Canada, then no indictment should
be returned, but the parties should
resort to civil suit for damages I"
The jury returned "no bill," and it
is manifest that they could not have
done otherwise under this charge of
the court, for the reason that Pastor
Russell lived in Brooklyn, New York,
and Rev. Ross lived in Hamilton,
Ont.. and it would be physically impossible for the libel to cause a
breach of the public peace when the
parties were so far apart.
Thus it will be seen that the issues were never tried and never determined. Pastor Russell did not resort to civil action for damages for
the reason that he was advised that
such an action would be useless, since
Mr. Ross was irresponsible financially and could not be compelled by such
a proceeding to publish a retraction.
Thereafter Rev. Ross published another pamphlet against Pastor Russell which for unmitigated falsehoods
and misrepresentations of facts certainly has no equal. Selecting here
and there isolated paragraphs from
the court records, he twisted them,
added to, misrepresented and made
them appear entirely different from
their true meaning. This could not
have been accidental on his part.
For instance among other things he
charges: "He (Pastor Russell) sought
to evade payment fixed by the court
by fleeing from one state to another,
making it necessary for his wife to
get an extradition order, which she
did, and led to the condemnation of
the cunning pastor by a third court,
and the increase of alimony."
Rev. Ross probably did not know
that extradition proceedings cannot
be resorted to to enforce a money
judgment, No extradition order was
made, nor were there any extradition
proceedings, but probably Rev. Ross
thought tne people would believe his
statement, even though false, because
he is recognized as a minister.

Heavens," aa seen by a lawyer, will

Beer Parlors Should Open  Earlier
Crnnbrook, B.C.,
Murch 23rd,  1027.
To The  Editor, Crunbrook Herald:
Dear Kir: Reading in a recent issue of the local paper re conduct of
beer purlers, I would to mako u suggestion from a working man's point
of view, The beer parlors do not
open till 10 a.m., hut if they opened
at 8 a.m. till 10 p.m. we would not
hnve half the drunkenness we have
today, us it is a well known fact that
liquor can bc procured in thc morning, nnd the consequence is that after the beer parlors open, and they
have a glass of beer they become intoxicated und the beer parlors get
the blame.
I would like to suggest that the
law read from 8 a.m. till 10 p.m. in
all towns.
Signed bv u Working Man,
appeured to much advantage in song
nnd dunce. The big dunce
which followed in tho I.O.O.F. Hull
was carried on very eiijoyjibly into
the early morning hours. The hall
hud been appropriately decoruted,
and presented n guy .scene. It is
sufe to say that this part of the St.
Patrick's program was enjoyed no
less than the first pnrt of the evening, the floor being in perfect condition for the dnnce, und the music
supplied by McKay's Orchestra being
all that could bc desired.
■ Altogether it wns n busy night for
Kimberley, and will probably rank
as  one   of  the  most successful ob-
I servances of "the seventeenth of Ireland" that Kimberley has seen.
St. Patrick's Day, Thursday of last
week, waa celebrated at Kimberley
with a concert and dance, under auspices of the Sacred Heart Church.
Both functions were deservingly
popular, and the results were eminently satisfactory to all concerned.
The entertainment program had
been arranged under the direction of
Father Haitmanu, and much credit
js due to those who assisted in the
program, which wus made up entirely
of Kimberley talent.
Father Hartmnnn himself presided,
und naturally from the nature of the
occasion the Irish predominated on
the program,
Father Hartmnnn, before the commencement of the program, gave
an address, nnd spoke a few
words of eulogy on St. Patrick and
the Irish race, referring to the green
of Old Ireland as the emblem of
hope. Hope, he suid, is the prerogative of the young, and as Kimberley
is young we should be optimistic.
The concert artistes were all
well received, and, with every, desire to avoid invidious distinctions, it
is but fuir to give Mrs. K. Marsden
the credit that is her due for her solo,
which was encored, und for her duet
with Mr. E. Bourehier in which both
excelled. The farce, "St. Patrick's
Day," or "Scheming Lieutenant
O'Connor," was well presented and
much enjoyed; and not by any means
the least enjoyable item was the
Irish medley in which some juveniles

Rial's Rebellion  of   1885
In n few days Riel was a prisoner,
and the insurrection practically at an
end. General Strange, a little later,
came up with Big Bear, but was repulsed from a strong position which
the old savage held near Fort Pitt.
Two days afterwards, a portion of
the bnnd was severely punished by
Major Steele, and the prisoners captured at Frog Lake were rescued.
Early in July the chief cnme in nnd
surrendered, nnd on the fifth of the
month the troops started for home,
v here they received such a welcome
mid were the cnuse of such really
nntionnl demonstrations an Canada
hns never seen before.
End of Riel
In the slimmer Kiel wns tried for
high treason at Regina, found guilty
and executed iu September, despite
n tremendous political uproar which
arose over the claim that he was a
Frenchman and a Catholic and was
being condemned for thnt reason;
that the insurrection wns justified
by the neglect of the government to
should be merely shut up in safekeeping for the rest of liis life. The
Liberal press made n fierce campaign
upon this general issue. Quebec wns
aroused as it hud perhaps never been
since the dnys of 1887 or 1819, nnd
Honore Mercler rode into office in
thnt province upon n triumphant
wave of feeling in regard to it.
But the sentiment was only a
momentary one. When tlie Dominion elections came on in January,
I8H7, Messrs. Chaplean, Langevfn
and Caron, who had taken their political lives in iheir hands, refused to
bow or bend lo storm of racial and
religious filling, and stood by Sir
John Macdonald, were able to hold
the province for the Conservative
party and for the constitutional exercise of tlie principle of Dominion
authority In the teeth of provincial
prejudices antl policy. Incidentully,
and during the debate upon the question in tbe House of Commons, Mr.
Edward Blake made one of hla greatest speeches in an attack upon the
government,   and    Hit*,    (afterwards

given in a Canadian parliament. I
have u large volume of British eloquence, nnd this speech stands easily
comparison with the greatest of Erskine, Curran, Macintosh, Fox and
Burke during the last of two centuries. It established permanently
his reputation as a great debater.
Mr. Chapleau also distinguished him*
self in this case as a powerful speaker, although ho modestly apologized
for speaking in English and not having sufficient command of the lang-
uage, showed a master of logical
reasoning that was nothing behind
the great effort of Thompson.    Sir

Government la  Stirred
The result of the rebellion wns, in
the main, beneficial, and the local
consequences of government neglect,
or insurrectionary discontent, or political strife, were transmuted by the
influence of pride in the volunteers
and the popular ardour of n military
campaign into a strengthened national sentiment which spread like a wave
from shore to shore of the Dominion.
It was during this time when strong
feelings wero aroused that Sir Wilfred Laurier made In*- famous challenge that if he were on tbe banks
of the Saskatchewan he, too, would
shoulder his musket. Another, Bill
Welsh, of P,E. Island, and member
of Queen's County, tne buffoon of
the House, elevated his arms in the
act of shooting, and finished the
dramatic act with a click of his
tongue. Every vote from Quebec,
except Langevin, Carron nnd Chap-
lean, deserted Sir John to save the
scoundrel Riel. It was during the
fierce debate, Sir John, knowing he
could not depend solidly on his own
party* appealed to Alexander McKenzie, who was near his end, but
stayed up along thj greater part of
the tilghl: "I want you and your
friends to stay with me." The answer was: "I have no friends." The
Liberal party was deserting the most
honorable man in all the House at
The  Aftermath
A good many questions mny be
asked in connection with the rebel-
linn of 18K.r>. Who supplied the four
hundred Winchester rifles to the
followers of Louis Riel? And these
required considerable ammunition, as
ihe Indians were not economical of
shots. Someone in Canada must have
been in the secret. General Middle-
ton, being an old soldier of the regulur Hritish Army, bud not a high
expectation of "raw soldiers." He,
according to McBeth'a "Policing the
Mains," had not a high opinion of
the R.N.W.M.P. He was not ready
to receive advice from men who
knew conditions. He refused to allow a force to charge a certain plnce
with the bayonet. Hut this was to
save rushing into unnecessary danger
that might be avoided. The contingent from Quebec did not gain a
high reputation. They were simply
used in guarding the stores. They
danced and sang songs all night, and
during the day threw their rifles on
the loads drawn by thc horses. I
had this from one of the men who
drove the teams. The Quebec Chronicle, an English paper, charged the
Colonel with cowardice. This resulted in a libel case, and as might
be expected, the newspaper was
fined. The detachment that left
Winnipeg was made up of clerks and
many others not exercised in work
that exacted stamina. Yet they gained the reputation that no troops '.,.
British history made longer marches
than   these  "raw  soldiers."

The Salvation Army
The readers have noticed by the
preceding; papers that each church
is tnkinjj their turn in the pulpit and
pew column. This week I will try
and give vou some news on what the
Salvation Army is doing;.
What you see of us here in Cranbrook   is a very small  branch of a
world-wide   organization.   Some.   I
I believe, arc   familiar as to how this
I organisation    was   commenced,   but
for the benefit of those who do not
I know,  1 will give you,  in brief, its
J history.
Sees  a  Great   Need
In   1865  William  Booth, who was
| then a  Methodist minister, was conducting meeting in the east end of
London;    he    saw    multitudes    ot
wretched,  uncarod  for people, who
never  attended neither church  nor
i chapel; they spent (heir time on the
I Sabbath day. and during the week, in
| idleness,   drink,  and  sins   of    every
i kind.    William   Booth    looked    upon
them   from  time to time  nnd  asked
himself:  "Cannot   they   be    reached
with salvation?"
He felt convinced that there must
be some method of Impressing them
i witli the truth, and he decided to de-
i vote himself to such methods as
[ would be likely to bring these out-
1 cast classes to (iod. So he eommene-
i ed hold ine outdoor meeting, thuB
I holding the first open-air meeting in
j Mile End waste. Some applaudtjd
; him, many opposed him, but in spite
' of persecution he persevered, and,
, seeing ureal results for his lubors as
; time went on, he bad quite a number
I of helpers.
So, as he was a man with a great
1 vision, he realized that there were
numerous other places which needed
someone to care for the down-and-
outs, and lie sent bis converts to out-
| lying places. But everywhere they
met with great opposition ■— they
were beaten, pelted, imprisoned, their
balls were burned and rowdies would
surround their plnces of worship and
cause such commotion that it was not
possible to continue there meetings.
They did not believe in giving up,
and ns time went on their forces continued to increase, and the people began to respect them. In the year
IK8P tbe then known Christian mission was ehnnged to the Salvation
Army — the name that it is known
by now all the world over.
So our privileges today were not
walked into with esse, but they were
fought for, nnd mnny lost their lives

colonies, and the same spirit prevails

still is: "Go for soul and go for the
The Army Spirit in Action
Sunday's battle had passed without a solitary individual seeking Salvation. The prayer of faith, the
intense application, devotion, and
faithful preaching in reliance upon
the Holy Spirit nad, so it seemed,
achieved nothing.
As the distraught Captain lay before God that night before retiring,
he vowed thnt Monday would be entirely spent in visiting the unsaved,
i and  that  he would speak  to  every
1 man, woman and child he met about
I the salvation of their souls.    This he
did throughout thc   dny,   receiving
many rebuffs, with other varied experiences, but the fact remained that
[ darkness hud fallen without a definite decision for Christ being secured.
Determined not to give in, he called nt a comrade's house nnd asked
if he could inform him of an unsaved
person whom he could visit.    He was
at once directed to the out-of-the-way
home of the most notoriously wicked
man in thc town. Knocking on the
door, a loud "Come in" greeted him,
and doing so, he found a huge, rough
man seated before a roaring fire.
Then began the tug-of-war. The
soul-seeker, full of desire for this
soul's salvation, talked prayerfully
and appealed to heart and mind in
every conceivable way. The man
lat there smoking carelessly, manifesting nothing but a stolid indifference. For a long time this apparently unequal contest was waged.
All this made the Captain desperate,
nd finally, drawing his chair near-
r, he looked his man straight in the
yes with, "Here, Mr. L . is tht
my earthly reason why you should
tot obtain salvation here and now?
Tbe answer was immediate and
.omewhat startling. "'None what-
ver,'' he shouted, as he threw up his
urns and sprang to his full height
Together they knelt, and the man
who hnd toiled all through the long
lay and caught nothing, who would
huve been excused by all but him-
lelf had he given up earlier, waa
able by his persistency and concern,
to point a notorious sinner to Christ.
"If I'd u known you were Army
you'd   never  have  got    inside   that
door,"  said  Mr.   L    afterward.
Isn't that an argument in favor of
giving "St. Unusual" a chance? of
doing the "out of the ordinary"
thing? The erstwhile violent man,
terror of the neighbors because of
his drunken habits and vile language,
became the lover of all, the highly
esteemed neighbor, and, in addition,
a real warrior for God and righteous.
Conquered by Lot*
Living alone, Margaret Burns
would huve nothing to do with her
neighbors and curtly discouraged
their every advance. One day, however, they accosted the Officer's wife
on her "War Cry" round with, "Do
call and see how old Maggie is.
There has been no sight nor sound
of her, nor even smoke in her chimney, for days." There was no response to thc knock, so timidly
enough the Captain's wife lifted the
latch and walked in to find a fireless
house and a half-frozen figure on a
It was Maggie and. glaring at the
intruder she wished to know by what
right the visitor had opened her door.
"Dearie," she replied, although
trembling, "I've come to see if I can
do anything for you."
"Don't want anything from the
likes of you. Mind your own business." snapped the old lady.
"Will you have a cup of tea,
"What would you like?"
"A roast apple!"
Now, it was winter; Maggie had
seen to it that the most difficult task
hud been set, and apples were very
scarce. But love will find a way, and
the Salvationist remembered that
someone had given her 6, which were
even then being baked for the children's dinner. Home she hurried, and
appropriated three of the applet, and
returned, no small journey being Involved.
The apples delighted the poor
half-starved woman, but she was still
ungracious, external!- at least, and
dismissed her benefactor abruptly,
next day she was there again, and,
asking what she could do, waa greeted with the astounding request: "
"If you mean, what you say, cut my
toe-nails and wash mv feet."
This thc servant of all Immediately began to do, nnd her heart went
out in deep sympathy to this poor
soul as she did so. So crippled with
rheumatism was she that for years
she had not been able to bend to aee

Among the questions to be dealt
with nt the United Church next Sunday evening are the following:
"What money does the United Church
get from the Government?" "Can
anyone who likes become a member?"
"Can a person accept the idea of evolution and still bc a Christian?" "Ia
not the church merely the tool of the
military and capitalist classes?"
"What haB the church done for the
worker in his fight for better conditions and higher wages?" Is not the
cross of Christ just a symbol for
Christianity?" "Since the writers of
the gospels were not educated men
and since miracles are not happening
today, is it not likely that these gospels contain many mistakes, distorted
facts, and foolish storieB?" "Why
did God have to send His son into the
