VOLUME    29
Annual   Hospital   Ball
To Establish
Girls' Camp
"Skookumchuck - In • The •
Rockies" New Development
at Premier
Mr. and Mrs. Klinore Staples, of
Wycliffe, B.C., hnve long pondered
a suitable way to share their beautiful property around Premier Lake,
und in contemplating the feasibility
of n girls' camp, they considered
themselves very fortunate, through
Allan DeWolfe, In hearing of Mlsa
Mnry Cutler, of Minneapolis, who has
"had considerable experience in directing and organizing girls' camps. They
induced Miss Cutler to come out to
thc lake from Minneapolis last fnll
at their expense, she having just
completed a successful summer at the
head of a well known Michigan camp
for girls, and pay them a visit to
look and talk things over. It was
not difficult at all to persuade Miss
Cutler that here was n chance to do
something different, and with immense possibilities.
Miss Cutler is a graduate of Columbia and the University of Minneapolis, where she wos a classmate of Mr,
DeWolfe, as well as a physical director, with a wide experience in the
handling of girls of all ages. She
possesses to a marked degree rare
ability, combined with energy, tact
and enthusiasm. The camp opens
July 1st and runs to August 26th,
with her in charge and heading a
splendid staff of experienced counsellors—young college women who
act ns Bort of older sister to the
Varied   Program   Laid  Out
The activities of the camp include
all out door sports, water sports, hiking, saddle and pack trips into the
Rockies, nature lore crafts, and offers n special inducement of a motor
camping trip through the Banff National Park. Mr. Staples has purchased two new ton trucks, which are
being specially fitted and equipped
for this trip, which should mean a
great deal to the district, as it will
give the girls a chance to see Banff,
Lake Louise, Field, etc., to say nothing of a swim en route in both Radium and Sinclair Hot Springs and
spreading the news of the gooq roads
nnd beautiful scenery to the different parts of the States from which
they come. "Skookumchuck in the
Rockies," for such is thc picturesque
and suitable name chosen for the
camp, hopes to have n number of
Canadian girls as well, and is offering special inducements to try to entice a few their way.
The camp buildings complete nt
present include the Junior Lodge, the
garage and annex, thc ice house, the
root and store house und the main
lodge or community building, cniled
"Skooknm Lodge." The latter, a
large log building, has an attractive
arrangement in thc living room,
where a balcony at one end, which
accommodates the grand piano, looks
down on an unique netting 01 fireplace, hickory furniture. Navajo rugs,
Indian trophies, skins ami gnme
heads. The lodge unhides n bathroom, and four bedrooms for the
counsellors, an office, n new dining
room iJOft. by 40 fl.. with fire-place.
nnd a large, commodious kitchen,
which will l>e in charge of a competent cook nnd two helpers.
Other Building! Planned
The building**- not yet completed,
but alre&dy under way. include a
barn, a laundry furnished with dec-
trie power nnd presided over continually by a laundress, a bunt-house,
on the second floor of which will be
a room for craft on rainy days (if
nny) diving lower and rtti't, fences,
corrals, power bouse, for tne camp

situated near tin* shore, overlooking

Lodge. These will he named "Wolf
Lodge." "Deer Lodgo," "Bi
Lodge," ami "BORT Lodge," with its
proper symbol over each entrance.
These will accommodate easily eight
girls and Oftth will have beside a dressing, bathroom, large main room, a

Kimherley people nre fully ulive io
the fact thut Mr. Shannon has had
no inconsiderable part in the growth
of the place, and in the community
life during that time, and it is planned to tender him a banquet next
week. Mr. Shannon has been prosi-
lent of the board of trade there, and
ulso of the Kimberley Amateur Athletic Association, civic matters and
sport in nil lines claiming a good
leal of his time, and undoubtedly
benefitting a great deal from the interest he took in them. He has also
assisted in the upbuilding of the Kimberley United Church in no smull
way from the time of its inception
there, and has also been a valued
member of Selkirk Lodge, A.F. &
A.M, Mr. Shannon's successor at
Kimberley has not yet been named.
The regular meeting of the school
board wus held In the council chamber on Frdiay last, at 8 p.m., with F.
H. Dezall in the chair, and a full
attendance of the board.
The minutes of the regulur meet
ing held on Murch 12th nnd the
special meetings held March 16th and
April 4th were adopted us reud.
A letter from John Peck, chief:
inspector of boilers at New Westminster, regarding inspection fees on
the boilers not in use at the Central
school, was read and ordered filed.
Ailc   For   Salary   Schedule
Mr. F. II. Buck wus present, and
addressed the bourd with regard to
conditions at the high school. After
a few remarks as to the progress being made, etc., Mr. Buck asked the
board to give consideration to estab-!
ishlng u salary schedule for u mini- i
mum und maximum salary and an '
nual increases until u maximum was,
reuched. Mr. Buck thought that suchj
schedule would give the teachers!
a definite idea us to what they might
expect in the event of sHtisfactory
service, and would do away with the
unpleasant necessity of applying for;
Increases in salaiy. The discussion
brought out the objections of the
board to such an arrangement. They
hud found in the pust that a schedule did not work very satisfactorily,
thc greatest objection seeming to be
that an inferior teacher received the
same treatment as a superior one.
The chairman gave Mr. Buck to understand, however, that the matter
would huve further consideration
from the board at n future meeting.
Part  Time   Fee Grade   XII
The chairman called attention to
he need of a speciul fee for pait
lime tuition in (irade 12, and it was
moved by Trustee Mrs. Jackson and
teconded by Trustee Henderson that
,i special rnte of $5.00 per month be
mude in n special case, covering four
supplementary subjects.
Trustee Henderson called attention
o ihe fact that one of the high
ichool students hnd met with a mishap in tlu* laboratory, and that
here were no supplies on hand to
assist in first aid for such cases.
It was therefore moved and seconded
that the secretary order o smull first

Girls' Grammar School, Glasgow,

Education addressed tu Miss Gieger-
ch. The correspondence seemed to
point to the teacher who might come
to Cranbrook under an interchange
arrangement being n qualified teacher. It was moved hy Trustee Henderson and seconded by Trustee Mrs.

o arrange un exchange with a teach-

Blue Last Sunday Afternoon
Damages Interior of
About one o'clock lnst Sunday afternoon- the sirens called the flro
brigade and people of Kimherley to
an outbreak at the Roman Catholic
Church there. With almost incredible rapidity the fire fighters were
on the scene and soon had the flanu<:
under control. Their efficient work
saved the building, but the interior
contents were almost destroyed by
fire  and  water.
The cause of the fire has not yet
been fully determined, although i,
has been surmised thut it originated
from a defect in electric wiyii g. Insurance wus in effect, so that the
damage is not altogether a h».>-,

Will Discuss Plans For High
School Extension at Session This Evening
Gn Wednesday night of this week
the School Board is holding a special
meeting with the city council to go
into various aspects of the high school
question, when the alternative pro-
nosals of the board, for a now building to coat ahout $1)0.000, or an addition at about half that cost, will be
gone intu with the council, nlong
with proposals for putting the matter
to the ratepayers. Some difficulty
presents itself in this regard, as it
is not desired to go to any more expense than is necessary, or to take
longer in deciding the question than
is required. The most probable
course nt this time,   if the council
agrees to the matter being put up
to the ratepayers, is for both proposals to appear on one ballot, the ratepayers bein- thus culled upon to signify which they fnvor.* If either proposal fails lo get the required three-
fifths majority, it could then he opened again by petition, and put to the
ratepayers alone.
The meeting of the school board
with the city council thi.s evening will
decide the mutter, and whether it is
io be put to thc ratepayers, and in
what form.
Mr. Ashton Powers returned on
Saturday from Windermere, where
;■ acrompanied the .remains of his
noth r, the late Mrs. E, Dupont of
his City, who was interred at Wln-
."j mere cemetery on Wednesday
ast. The family bud resided in the
Windermere country in the early
lays, and were well known in thut
listi let, particularly by the older resi.
fonts. Mrs. Powers also accompanied her husband, and along with
hem vim Miss M. A. Kimpton, of
his city, n sister of the late Mrs.
Oupuut. Other relatives in attend-
i»cg at the fcinorul were Mr. Rufus
Kimpton, of Windermere, and Mr.
Dan Kimpton, of Golden. Mr. V.
Kimpton, of Keoma, Alta., a cousin
of Mr. Powers, wns nlso in attendance. Rev. E. G. Thatcher, of the
Anglican Church, conducted the
funeral sei vices.
Tbe late Mrs. Dupont was an old
resident in Kast Kootenay, first com-
!rfg to Golden in the middle of the
'ight'i-s. For some time afterwards
he lived there und in the Windermere, before going to Donuld, where
iier first marriage took pluce to an
thgineer on the main line.
She Inter made her home at Kamloops, where she was left u widow,
ind again after her second marriage
she was bereaved in Kamloops. Some
time later Mrs. Dupont and her son
cume to Cranbrook, arriving about
wenty-om* years ago, where they
have since resided. Muny friends i
from this city sent floral tributes to'
the funeral, testifying to the friendship, which the deceased had enjoyed
and the sympathy extended to the
relatives cm the passing of the late
Mrs.  Dupont.
The death took place after a comparatively short illness, on Friday
last, of Mr. J. J. Miller, who resided
on a ranch on Rampart, a few miles
west of this city. The lato Mr, Miller wiis apparently in good health
until the middle of lust week, but he
complained of not feeling well late
on  Wednesday evening.    Medical aid
was summoned from this city, but
nothing could bo clone for him, us it |
was determined he had been taker
with cerebral hemorrhage. Mr. Miller lapsed into unconsciousness and
remained En that condition until Friday morning, when death ensued. H
is survived by his widow and also
one son, who resides in Winnipeg,
and who arrived in the city to attend the funeral,
The late Mr. Miller was a native
of the state of Michigan, but moved
,o Canada when still a young boy,
nnd had for many yeurs past resided
mi his ranch at   Rampart.
The funeral took place on Wednesday from the undertaking parlors,
interment heing made in the local
cemetery. Deceased hnd heen at one
time a member of the Oddfellows'
Order, and members of Key City
Lodge acted as pall bearers.
The sawmill of the B.C. Spruce
mills commenced the season's operations al Luinbeiton Monday of last
week. Considerable delay has been
brought about by the late Spring, and
the mill wns again closed lnst Saturday, on account of lack of water in
the big flume. This company transports all Its timber, some 20,000,000

the interior. Its mill is the largest
and best equipped in the Kootenays,
while the "closed down" of Lumber-
ton is a model of neatnes.- and
efficiency. Last year thia mill operated both a day and a night shift. But
at the present time there is no intention of operating a night shift this
3enson. The calculation is that if
the day shift can approximate last
year's top record of 225,000 feet f*r
day there will be no necessity to run
the double shift.

Monday evening of this week there
was a meeting of the Cranbrook-
Kimberley branch of the Automobile
Club held at Kimberley, W, II. Wilson presiding. There was not a very
large attendance, and roads in the
district, their condition, and probable
plans for the future occupied a (rood
deal of the attention of the meeting.
It was learned with satisfaction that
work is proceeding now on improving
the worst part of the road between
the two towns, and the government
will be asked to continue this work,
especially on the part between Cranbrook and Wycliffe. A. R. Lilly, the
secretary, outlined the steps the Kimberley Board of Trade had taken in
urging a new route for a cut-off from
Kimberley tu the Windermere road,
saving a considerable distance, and
the Club decided to back this proposition nnd assist the Kimberley board
in getting it through. The Kimberley
board will continue their efforts in
this direction, and will take the matter up further with J. C. Brady, district engineer. The view wus expressed that to continue spending
money on the MeCiinty trail was not
in the best interests of economy; a
new rond was needed. Mr. A. R. Lilly also spoke of the need of a motor
tomist camp for Kimberley. and thin

May 24th
Everything points to a successful
celebration of the 24th of May in
Cranbrook this year.
A letter was received Saturday last
from Mr. J. S. Carter, president of
the Nelson Amateur Athletic Association, that Nelson would hnve High
School boys' team and some High
School Kirl9 at Cranbrook meet. Word
was also received by the chairman,
F. II. Buck, that Nelson would send
their very best athletes to compete
here, and if possible, try and take

that they will also send some competitors.
There will be four open events, the
entries with tentativ program will be
published thi? week, and application
forms which give the  order of the
vents can be had on application.
Mr, Frank Morris, secretary of the
Public School committee, has already
itorted bin preliminary work, which
covers some twenty it-ems. When it
la remembered that last year all these
vents were pulled off in 45 minutes,
to make this time means complete
•r^anization for which the chairman
1 noted, for along with many splen-
did lady teachers in the Central
ichool, the work that was started by
he G.W.V.A. and the committee referred to has already born fruit in
the life and habits of many of the
Crunbrook youth. The parents and
people of Cranbrook arc looking forward with pride to being able to hold
our own against all comers on the
24th, so it behooves every citiren
to stay in town and make no plans
for getting away on this date.
Baseball, football and the tug-of-
war are looking well for big events
that day. Special challenge cups are

A. L. Hay ia expected to return
from Kamloops this week and will
finish up hid work here it i.i expected
very shortly. While no appointment
has yet been made as a successor to
Mr. Hay, a number of name* are being considered by the department,
including some from other provinces.
In the meantime, the department has
been asked to Bend someone into the
district temporarily to carry on the
duiies of district agriculturist until
a permanent appointment is made. It
is felt that with the junior stock

with the possibility of a representation from this district catching a
place on the B.C. team to compete
in the East, that it would be unad-
visable to let this work drop just at
this time.

A little later, possibly next month.
it is expected that J. F. Elkine, secretary of the B.C. Auto Club, will visit
this district in the interests of the
Club. At this meeting Mr. Wilson
also announced that the official gar-
aces tot the Club had been selected
for Cranbrook and Kimberley, these

OUITE apart from the original Scriptural significance of Easter, on which the observance of
the season in these latter days is based, all tlie pro- I
cesses of nature seen on every hand seem to rciter- |
ate tlte though of hope ns the central theme of thel
season.   There is a   revival  of  domant   forces,  a'
bursting into life oi various phases of nature thel
future of whicli cannot be foreseen, but wliich may |
give promise of beauty, or which on the other hand
may suffer tlie blasting from unfavorable influences j
and come to an   untimely   end.    It   is   all   in   the
future — so are the live of men and women — all
meant to be in tlie future.   Tlie past is full of mis-1
lakes, aud it is on these that we can climb up to
write tlie most  sublime page in tlie book of like.
Hope ■— tlie promise of fairer thing — this is the
message of Easter, aiul whoever fails to put it into
their ives will not live as fully or as completely as
it was intended they should, for while looking backwards is helpful and sometimes sorrowful, tlie future can always be regarded as full of hope, a fair
prospect indeed till marred liy ourselves.
POETS and philosophers tell of the satisfaction
obtained from cultivation of flower and vegetable gardens, but the practice is not as general as
could be wished, ln many places there is much less
gardening than there was some years ago. People
have too many things they want to do with their
spare time.
In many cities and towns, however, the garden
movement has been pushed as a community proposition. People have been urged, iu a systematic way,
to decorate their grounds with handsome shrubbery
aud flowers, and some of these communities have
developed an amazing amount of this beautification.
Such towns become noted, and every minute of
time put in on those flower beds is no doubt paid
for iu the higher value of real estate that is established iu such a town.
Home pride is the motive that can best'be relied upon to promote the gardening movement.
People will usually do what their neighbors do. If
you persuade one or two influential families on a
street to spend a little more time and money beautifying their places this season, the majority of their
neighbors would, within a year or two, fall into linc
and do the same thing.
As respects vegetables, the advantage of the
back garden ought to lie obvious in these times of
high prices. The children of the modern community
do not have enough share in the home tasks, and it
would do them good to have some regular labors
iu a garden, and they could do a good deal of its
work. Hut the old folks cannot expect them thus to
labor unless tliey also are willing to do some stunts
with the spade and hoe themselves.

The silver cup which was pat up
last October by the Ministerial Asso-
ciation to be presented I" the Sunday

Fountain, girls' work secretary for
B.C. Her message was stimulating
and inspiring. She i.s always a wet-
come visitor tn Cranbrook.

theme throughout each meeting will
be "The Risen Lord." Trios, quartettes and .solos will be sung by different comrades. All are cordially

their lust meeting of the season last
Monday evening. The secretary, Miss
Nellie Lewis, gave a summary of the
work of the society. Meetings were
held, with few exceptions, throughout
the fall and winter months. These
metings were strictly devotional and

young people of the church who attended these meeting und kept the
spiritual work of the church alive
throughout the week.

Janet Hood Bogie, of Newcastle-on-
Tyne, England, was united in marriage to John William Melvin, of Kimberley, B.C. The service was read
by Rev. Malcolm Stewart Blackburn.
The bride, who was unattended, was
prettily   attired  in  an  ensemble  of
radio blue, with hat of gold and blue,
trimmed with French flowers. Mr.
Melvin has been an employee of the
C. M. & S. Co. at Kimberley for
some time, and his many friends join

Miss Cutler is in charge of enrolling the campers and has already a
sufficient number to insure a successful first year. Mr. and Mis. Staples,
who are completely financing the undertaking, have given both time and
[hough to their plans and are person-
na'ly overseeing the carrying-out In
every detail, of this very complicated

abbreviated from its usual size this

a good deal of essential work on hand

every corner, with the result that
men are now at work making corners
very much easier where large rock
had been laid which could not be
rolled in last fall. Pedestrians on all

Names may bo mentioned which
will remain inseparable from the
story of the greut North West of
Canada, among them General Middle-
fun nml Lord Melgrend, who became
Governor-General   as   Lord   Minto;
I General Sir William Otter, who cele-
brated lately his 83rd birthday; Sir
Datilel McMillan, who arrived at Fort
Garry with the Wolseley expedition
in   1870,  a  former member of the
I provincial legislature and Lieutenant-
I Governor of .Manitoba for eight
years, and wlio on January 1st cele-
Ibrated hie eighty-first birthday; Mr.
Thomas Dean, former member of the
i Royal Gronndlora and veteran of the
Nurth-Wesl rebellion of 1889, who
died in Toronto a fow   weeks   ago;
iGoneral Strnngo, Colonel Williams,
who was killed while standing in an
i open window and wns shot at long

I Mncdonald, (lie Illustrious son of a

The majesty of the law and the common sense of national order weft
thus sternly vindicated as they should
have been fifteen years before.
Eight Indians were hanged for murder and a number imprisoned for different tSrms. Among the latter was
Poundmaker, who was given three
years in the penitentiary and died before his term expired.
Cameron, the, sole survivor of the
Frog Lake massacre, tells of the tragic event. Mrs. Delany and Mrs.
Gowanlock, the wives of two of the
white settlers, tell thnt the first victim was Quinn the Indian agent;
next Gowanlock was shot. Mrs. Delany was dragged away by two Indians who wished to save her life.
As she was being dragged she saw
the two priests shot; Father Talford
fell first and Father Mar chant afterwards, Mrs. Gowanlock states that
she was on tin? road to Mrs. Delany's
house when the Indians began firing. She saw Mr. Williscraft fall almost at tho door of Mrs. Delany's
house; next she saw Delany shot, and
then she was dragged away. The
women were threatened with death,
but thc influence of some frindly Indians saved thm. Mrs. Gowanlock
attributes her salvation to the fact
that her life was bought by Blondin,
an Indian, for a horse and $.'10.
While the women were in a tent Big
Bear frequently came and told them,
under his breath, that he was sorry
for them and that it was the fault
of his braves, whom he could not
Nine men were killed in the massacre, which was the work of a feu-
minutes. The victims were Thomas
Quinn, John Delany, John C. Gov/.* n-
lock, George Dill, John Willescraft,
William C. Gillerest, Charles Gouin
(a half-breed), and the two priests,
one a native of Quebec and the other
a native of France.
Big Bear's Speech
True to the traditions of the North
West Mounted Police the murderers
were brought to justice, but not until months of searching and fighting,
in the course of which a number of
lives were lost. They were arranged before Justice Richardson, and at
thc trial Big Bear made a wonderful
speech, in the course of which he defended the attitude of the Indians
against their "oppressors;" but he
spoke with sorrow about the blood
which had been shed. "I have ruled
my country for a long time and I
am in chains and will be sent to prison. I am dead to my people. I
have too much confidence in the Great
Grandmother (Queen Victoria) to
fear that starvation will be allowed to
overtake my people. The time wilt
come when the Indians of the North-
West will be of much service to the
Great Grandmother, I plead to you
(and he stretched forth his hands)
the chiefs of the white men's laws,
for pity to help the outcasts of my
band. "My heart is on the ground.
I have spoken."
Everybody in court was moved by
these words, but Big Bear could not
be excused from responsibility for
the misdoings of his followers, and
he was sentenced to imprisonment in
the penitentiary at Stony Mountain
for three years.
A medal and clasp was issued by
the Imperial authorities to all who
had participated in the suppression
of the insurrection. The Hon.
Adolph P. Caron, who had proven
himself an energetic and effective;
Minister of Militia, was made a K-.C.
M.G.; General Middleton, amidst
wide approval, was given the same
honor, together with the thanks of
the Canadian parliament and a vote
of $20,000.
An unfortunate aftermath occurred to the latter in the discovery of
certain alleged irregularities in connection with a seizure of furs belonging to the rebels. The confiscation seems to have been permitted by
the General without much thought
and with the knowledge and concur-
ment official who accompanied him
ronce of Mr. Hazter Reed, a govern-
in an advisory capacity in connection
with Indian and half-breed civil affairs.

only have lost one heart and one club

Scanland, baritone, gave "The Pump

was also requested for his "Valencia"
of the lust concert, but time did not
allow of this, much to the regret of
the audience. The new member of
the troupe, Miss Jennie Hopkins, was
ntroduced to the audience by Mr.

gave a vivacious rendition of "Hey,
Oh, Cheerio," assisted by the chorus.
Miss Hopkins possesses a pleasing
voice and stage presence, and was
heavily encored by the audience.
Sammy Thompson's "Me, Too" was
given in his own inimitable style, as
was also his duet with Mr. Kievill.
These two artistes are decidedly clev-
and are alwavs sure of a warm
reception.    Fred Harris sung a song

On Thursday morning of last week
Wardner, no doubt nlong with the
balance of the district, experienced
all the elements of the four seasons
in the space uf a few hours. Exceedingly heavy rains set in during
the early hours of the morning, to

regular January blizzard, heavy snow
falling, and accompanied by severe
windstorms. This later turned ,to a
hail storm, and the day finallv turned
iut to  he one of  the warmest  yet
xperienced this year.    Although the
wind was heavy, no damage was done

The opening game of the local lacrosse league was played on Monday
of this week between the Tigers, captained by Jimmie McFarlane, nnd the
Maple Leaves, formerly known us the
Lions, captained by Jimmie Dixon.
The game was first class, very close
all the way through, the final score
being 3-2 in favor of the Tigers. Dr.
A. Cameron refereed the game. The
third team in the local league, formerly known as the Cubs, has now
changed its name to the Rosebuds,
and a game is scheduled for Thursday evening between that tenm and
the Maple Leaves. On Thursdny of
last week a practice game was played between the Tigers and the
Canucks, which wus won by the Tigers, 3-2. This was also ' a close
game and was considered very good
for the first gume of the season.

Mrs. J. F, Smith, who is at present
visiting on Vancouver Island, sends
back on interesting account of a visit
Lady Wiilingdon, wife ef the Governor-General of Canada, made to the
Qualicum Women's Institute on April
4th, in the course of the vicc-rega!
tour recently. Mrs. Smith is one of
the pioneer members of the Cranbrook Women's Institute, and her
mention of the incident will be read
with interest.   Mrs. Smith says:
"We stood to receive the Countess
and she graciously bowed, right and
left, as she proceeded up the aisle
to the platform, where the president,
Mrs. Fisher, gave the address of welcome. She replied, reading her ad
dress, which was most kind. Sho
then requested those present to come
and shake hands with her. As I am
a charter member of the Crnnbrook
Institute I received an invitation and
went with Mis. Sinnot. I told Her
Excellency it was over fifty years
since I had given an address of welcome to Lndy Dufferin at Ynlc, B.C.,
and presented her with a bouquet.
Lady Wiilingdon replied she had Lady
Dufferin to lunch with her before she
left England. I then told her I had
read her mother's book, "Thc Cruise
of the Yacht Sunbeam." she said she
was thc youngest daughter, who was
always falling overboard. Lady Wiilingdon is quite unaffected and has a
charming personality. The members
of the Institute are very much Interested in the Solarium, and are going there this month to visit it. I
am looking forward to going, too."
