Tho Union tat Convention hold ii
Cranbrook yoetorday waa vory Inrgoly
iitti'iuU'ii from nil I'oititH of tho District.   Dolosatos poured tn on ovory
train und nt 2 p.m. tho Hull wns filled,
T. t. McVittie, Prosldont of Kast
Kootenay Fedora) Unionist Association culled tho mooting to order and
owing to his not tooling in tlu* host
of health asked tlio meeting to appoint a chairman to act in h\n capacity. Mr. Sherwood Herchmer of Fernie was imunimmiHly choaen and business was commenced witli nt once.
The first matter of business was to
write a letter to the Liberal Convention which waa in .session here to
form a committee of 6 to meet a like
number of Conservative tTnlonlsts to;
see If they could arrive at some t* j
clslou to agree on a Union Candidate, j
Word was received they would meet|
on these plans at the Cranbrook Hotel and delegates were immediately |
elected and proceeded to the Hotel j
and aftor a long consultation no j
agreement was reached. The bone j
of contention being thc Liberals want* j
cd the sent as a Liberal Unionist. Mr. i
Herchmer pointed out that the Liberal
Unionists of the Province had already
claimed tho four seats allotted them
by the heads of the Union Government
at Ottawa; ho suggested if any of the
four mentioned seats already claimed
by the Liberals would drop out in
favor of a Conservative Unionist then
this scat eould go to the Liberals.
The meeting ended here witiiout any
agreement. At 6 p.m. a letter was received from the Liberals saying they
could not entertain this proposition,
A letter was then written the Liberal?
that a joint convention be held on a
fifty-fifty basis consisting of 30 Conservatives and 30 Liberals In person
(not proxy) and the voting to take
plaee fnr a Union Candidate by ballot. 'The answer ffrom flu l.ioerats
was thnt tliey would meet on a fifty-
fifty basis with this addition "thai
the vote be by a show of hands and
thnt the nominee receive a three-fifths
majority." The Conservative Unionists
answered tliat they were still anxious that tiiere be a joint convention
but the vote must be by secret ballot
und a majority rule ns It was ttie
opinion of the meeting thai the siik-
goattons in their letter would be neither fair to cither parties or 10 the
country. The Liberals' answer wns
that they would concede to voting by
ballot but tlie majority of ihree-i'iftlis
should stand. Another letter was written the Liberals stating that ii was
tho decision fif the meet inn that
majority should rule and hoping thai
they   could   see   their   way   clear   to
accept this decision.   Answer received
was that the Liberal mooting decided
thai   the term re three-fifths   majority
must slnnd and that this was final.   A
verbal offer was brought back by Mr. |
Leitch nnd Mr. Manning that llie Lib-
omll! offered to hold a joint convention   and   take   three   volet*   and   thfl
candidate receiving ;i majority of '.It!
24 In** elected and If tftich majority was
not   secured  by either  party  then  tt
was Off,    An answer was despatched ;
at onoo to the Liberals agreeing t"
this and In the event of this :i-ti major-!
ity not being received a fourth ballot
be taken  and the candidate with a
majority  be nominated.    The answer
to this was Unit Ihey could not accept i
and the mattar ba now closed, as they
bad    offered    dlfforenl     concessions
none   were   accepted.     The   Unionist
Convention then proceeded, at the late
hour of 18.80 p.m. lo nominate tholr
candidate    A, K. Watts of WatUburg
nominated Dr, S Bonnell or Ferule to
bo the candidate tu the forthcoming
election;  this was seconded  by Mr.
J.   1>.   Mdlride   of   Cranbrook.    No
other nominations were made and l»r
H, Hounell was then made the unanimous oholCO of the meeting.   Hr. 1km-
nell   then   addressed   lhe  Convention
thanking them very heartily for the
honor bestowed on him by nominating hlm as n candidate in the forthcoming election.   He gave an outline
of hts experiences during the yonr hn
spent at tlie fronl.   He referred to the
groat devastation caused by the Huns
In Kurope.   Tlio Doctor dwelt at some
length on the great work the .Navy
was carrying on; It was the bulwark
which the cuemy could not face.   He
also referred to the  devastation of
Servia where the people were driven
ahead of the Hun and families had
become broken up and members were
lost from ono another not knowing
whether they were alive or prisoners
of the enemy.   Hc said "If 1 nm elected  to go to Ottawa, I  go there to
strengthen tbe hands of tho Government and not to he just merely In th"
political game."    He said he was n
Canadian and was in the wnr to the
toil van and teat dollar.   Ha again
thanked the audience for the honor
bestowed on him and asked all present
for their undivided support in the
coming election.
It. F. Oreen, M. P., came in to the
city yesterday nftornoon and was present at the convention. Mr. Oreen addressed the delegates and outlined the
operations leading up to Union Government and tie advised ull present
that lie was not here to take any part
whatever in the convention but advised them to take plenty of time nnd
give the Liberals every chance to
eome ln and hnve a joint convention
to choose a Unionist Candidate.

! On the eighteenth of October, "Our
Day" for the British Rod Cross Society, was the occasion i'or a supreme
effort. On that occasion the Windermere District was thoroughly organized and parcelled out under the various heads which came uuder the directions of the various committees of
tho Cnnedlnn Red Cross Society and
tho whole territory canvassed In au
onorgetic  effort  io collect  funds to
aid iu this good cause, witli the result
that the sum of three hundred uud
seventy dollars was netted, which a-
mount Inculdes a generous contribution from the friends residing in and
aboul the post otflce of Spilliniaehene.
One of the most ardent canvassers
lor the fund, has possibly been Mrs.
T. A. Pope of Westcliffe ranch, wife
of Thomas Arclidale Pope*, late of Edinburgh. Scotland. Mr. Pope has already had one son who has given liis
life up in lhe cause of freedom aud
iias a younger wm who has beeu once
wounded and who is again back in the
trendies doing his bit. On this "Our
Day" It fell to the lot of Mrs. Pope
to visit the employees of the Paradise
Mine, a property well over twenty
miles from here, situated at a great
height, near the foot of Mount Nelson. Mrs. Pope was very successful
iu her visit to these workers aud iu a
short account has set out the result
of her visit in the hope thai it might
In* of interest to others engaged iu
similar work and stimulate them to
no and do likewise.   She says;
"Various members of our Hod Cross
Committee having undertaken to visit
different parts of our scattered dislrict for "Our Day" U fell to my lot
to interview the miners half way up
Mount Nelson. As il meant a drive of
ubout twenty-two miles along a fairly
difficult road a kind friend offered to
take me up In a rig. We started at
six thirty in the morning and at
twelve o'clock we arrived at the mine
ofllco, and from tiiere up to the mine,
i ten minute wnlk, landed ns breath-
■ esp. In a room where the miners
.vere wailing for us—impatient at tlie
Interruption, I thought, but looking
ery interesting with their little mining lamps all lit. just ready to return
to work. A few words addressed them
ibout the needs of our poor wounded
boys' touched tlieir hearts and tliey
iti responded most generously. The
journey we had taken, generally done
u two days, may have appealed to
hem, also tlie unusual sight of a
woman In ramp, but whatever the
reason, they certainly made tlie trip
/ery well worth while, for we started
>n our return journey with over one
hundred dollars collected, having left
:i small I'nion Jack flying iu the room
is a souvenir.
There was still more collecting to
be done at Jack Pine and even Hie
'hlnaman cook did not hesitate to
ipeii his purse. When we reached
untie it was seven-thirty and dark.
ve telephoned our success to Mr. Ran
lolpii Etruce, the owner of the mine,
mil on bearing that we had collected over one hundred nnd thirty dol-
ars he added twenty five dollars to
lie sum nnd we felt that our share in
he dav's work had certainly been
.vorth while."
The fingers were those** ot Hr.
J. W. Besnard, ot 539 Craig St.

The Ford is Now Considered a Necessity
for Large-Scale Farming
WHETHER you are doing work on a large scale, or a small
scale, you endeavor to reduce the delays of your farm
machinery to a minimum'and^save time. A Ford will assist
you in doing these two things.
If your tractor runs short of gasoline, the Ford will bring a few cans
right to the spot and greatly shorten the delay. Or if you need
a repair, or some new plow points, you can "run" the errand to
town and back in one-third the time it would take with a horse
and rig.
With a Ford you can supervise the work on your ranch much more
thoroughly. You can get your mail and supplies oftener, and take
more enjoyment out of prairie life. A Ford will do all these things
and many more, and at the same time save you money.
The strength and endurance of the Ford has been proved the
world over.   It is equal to the western roads and the distances.
The Ford is I Ae cur for the Western Farmer.
