Cranhrook nnd distrlol has a
bright future before It. The
.vear 1920 should witness great
activity in tliis district if but
one-half of the program mapped out is brought to a final!
There is no room hereabouts
for pessimists, and everyone |
should lend a helping hand lo
community interest undertakings. One business man owes
it as much as another to the
community in which he operates to put his shoulder to the
wheel and take advantage of
the good things lining held out
to everyone within the district.
Tliis section of the rich Province of lli'itsh Columbia will no
doubt  experience  the  greatest
Influjf ttf tourists ever enjoyed.
aj. .'w'uh Ihe business activity
wnich will be noticeable to all
these outsiders when they come
our way, combined with a real
hospitable welcome which must
be accorded them, they will go
their way with a recollection of
Cranbrook which will be bene-1
licial to an extent that will he!
difficult   to  estimate as to  its|
value in the immediate future.
The undertaking of the Hoard
of Trade to provide a log cabin
at the depot with the co-operation of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, is another
undertaking whicli should be
niBhed to an early completion,
for the time Is neart at hand
when tourists who have been
at points south of us and at
the Coast will be enroute home
to the Prairie centers, and to
have tho cabin intact and displays as outlined contained in
it, would get the attention of
many who may never come our
way again.
Also, the efforts of the local
Prospectors' Association in arranging a display to be made of
our Minerals at Ihe Northwest
Mining convention In Spokane
should meet with unstinted
support; it means much to Ihis
Co-operalion on the part of
everyone resident within the
district is what is wanted most
just at this time.
We have the goods but we
must place them on display.
Commercial bodies everywhere
are anticipating heavy traffic
from all over the world following the Great War's end and
the demobilization of the gallant boys who brought the contest to a successful conclusion
for civilization, an now that we
enjoy a safe world in whicli to
live without fear of Hun despotism, many unsettled will lie
seeking new homes.

"The foundation

having reserved by statute special
rights to the National Railways not
enjoyed by private companies and
withheld it In certain particulars
from tbe Jurisdiction of the Board
of Railway Commissioners, but 1 am
hopeful that lu time this will be
remedied. The accounting methods
and financial returns of all companies should likewise be absolutely
identical. Given these essential premises and the National Railways tbe

this means rtiat tiie rati way situation
in Cutmdd \f. now completely chang-
i'l!, and the country must depend for
some time at least for additional railway facilities, where needet. upon
the National Railways or the Cana-
f""n pacific, because with preponderating mileage under the control of
the Government, It is not likely that
much cnppal would be attracted to
new railway enterprise for the rewards which such investments might
bring. Therefore, I think It may
be fairly stated that such additional
construction as takes place within
the uev few years will depend upon
tbe witlinsneBs of (he National Railway* and the Canadian Pacific to
appreciate these needs and their financial ahilltv to meet them.
I -This Is a situation which Is without parallel any place In the world

greatly different in the matter of

almost exclusive right to remedy

places throughout Canada. It Is
true, I think, tbat tliis will provoke
a highly competitive condition. How
effective this competition wilt be

fairness, If political methods nre

Ah echo of the famous "plugging

on Friday, when Cap',. F. .1. A. Mac
Kenzle, Conservatve soldier member
for Delta, suggested the House would

"inside k,.ii(;" of Liberal workers who
manipulated tlie votes; of tiie Seattle

hundreds to Vancouver In February,
191(1, to personate in the Liberal interest at the .bye-elections at which
M. A. Macdonald was elected, came t0
be appointed to the responsible .position of cashier In the department of
the Provincial police at Vancouver.
Cook is now a fugitive from justice
having recently levanted from that
city with some $:i000 or more of Provincial funds tilehed from the proceed- of motor anj other license fees
collected by the olllce and turned over
to him i'or safe-keeping A reward
of $1,000 is now being offered for his
arrest. Like his former pal In tin
"plugging" scandal, John T. Scott,
of notorious memory, Cook made his
getaway t0 Seattle by motor, lie Is
still some laps ahead of the officers
of the Crown.
Capt. MacKenzIe quoted from the
Official record or i'mV-s evidence before the Royal Commission which Investigated the "plugging" charges and
which found that: "It is proved beyond nny doubt that an elaborate
nnd expensive scheme of personation
was adopted In behalf of M. A. Macdonald. the Liberal candidate." True
! Cook, before the Commission, was a
most  recalcitrant  witness.      Ho ad-

i time to consider the matter ami who
suggested   thnt   the   Opposition   lender's assertion that the premier's tnc-
icked of Russia  was a com
parison  hardly  fair  t<-  Russia,
On Thursday the matter "gain
came up. There was n.ore arguments by the nRposlng leaders and
then Mr. Speaker rendered bis decision one he Inul had before him al!
written, a fact that did not escnpo the
eagle eye of the leader of the Opposition who suggested Mr. Speaker had
reached Ihs decision before he had
heard tho full argument The decision supported tbe premier's star
The Opposition leader appealed to tin
House against the decision and was
naturally unsuccessful, the govern
ment majority—one he was wont if
lub a brute majority—being on hand
lo support Mr. Speaker. Hut the dl
vision, the flrsl of the session, was

Despite promles that the present
scission would see an improvement in
the way of the early preparation and
submission or legislation, the ract is
government legislation is no more
ready now than it has been at thc
corresponding period In former years.
This session will, of a certainty, st e

bills came down in bunches In the

Pleasure   In   I'nrlvlitHtnMies**.
"They     had  a  pleasure  in
i unrighteousness."—2 Thoss. 2:12.
1, Thla is an age when people
■ "take pleasure in unrighteousness."
, Example I. Novels. The writers
1 of ihese novels tell us that unless
they put in Improper things tbey cannot -ell thorn. The more suggestive
they are. the better they sell, and
'■ the belter the price publishers will
pay to the writers. "I hate the hus-
i Iness and despise lt," snld a popular
. novelist. " but I must live." And
. so lie sits down and writes books
that eorrput the youth aud beauty of
our laud and load them to the police
: court nnd divorce court.
Example 2, The Cinema. Commissioner Sow ton tells of the twenty-
eight boys between the ages of sixteen and twenty-two who were sent
to prison lately in Wostern Canada
for daring  burglaries nnd robberies
which they had learned from the cinema. Some of them had held up a
train, robbed the passengerr,, and
gone off in nn automobile, just as
they had seen it pictured. Most of'
them came from good families and
were not in  want.
The cinema people excuse themselves hy saying that the public must
have* exoituniont, and tragedy, and
plenty of "unrighteousness."
2. What doc- God say about them'.'
They shall "perish." t Verse 10.);
They shall "be damned." (Verse 12.)
In Hebrews 11,26 we read how Moses
"Chose rather to suffer affliction with
lhe people of Ood than to enjoy the
pleasures of sin for a season." He
made bis choice. He did not simply
desire, but he chose.
Have you chosen God. of the
world? Vou must choose one or the
other. You can desire blth, but you
can only chooes one. Which shall
it be?
