hobors before Judge Brown hist Friday on tlie charge of not burying
Ihelr deud, they explained their reason for not burying tbe remit ins,
which was that tho bodies were Id be
left for hen sis lo consume so thnt
there would be no waste.

the nature of tho crime, thai bodies
must he buried so as to prevent dls-
ease, and tried to secure from the
Oimkohors an assurance tiiat In fit-1
tore they would observe tho law nnd

such assurance the tenor of their re'

Harvey, 11 well known circus man,
who for years has been spending
monoy like water in tlie circus business. Tlie expense of building and
amusement enterprise does not disturb him because its manager of one
of the greatest circus enterprises on
ibe roud be learned thnt It was only
i»y tlie lavish expenditure of money
that success can be attained. Hence
ii is nol surprising that Harvey's
Greater Minstrels wear the DWelleet,
most expansive wardrobe ever worn
by any minstrel und also that Its olio
of seven acts of vaudivllle Include
specialties not to be outclassed anywhere aud the members of this minstrel arc highest salaried aud the
best treated of any minstrel man on
tho road—the result is the best entertainment witli hundreds of would-be
patrons turned away five nights out
of the week. It seems impossible to
find theatres large enough to accommodate the crowds who want to see
the Harvey Greater Minstrels. Moral,

needless to say that from accurate
box office statements as well as from
scores of press and public opinions
thai have heen watched for the past
four mouijis from the company's important city engagements, a guarantee is not essential to assure a capacity house.

Smallpox Is isolated to prevent Us
spread. The boibeds of venereal diseases should bo treated lu the same
way. Houses of prostitution nre
hard to oontrol, but they are like
poverty—we have them ever with us.
lt we wero making u new world—
we would not have nny prostitutes in
it, but as they are here and everywhere and are a product of our
boasted civilization we cannot ignore tlieir presence. The only hallowed bed Is the one that is shared by
man and wife, but there are a great
many unhallowed beds in Uie world.
They are found everywhere. Some
are unhallowed from choice and some
from neccesity. Some of tlie most
confirmed harlots were once as pure
as the lily, and many of Uie frequenters of baudy houses owe their downfall to economic conditions or some
other rotten environment. There
may not be any neccesity ior evil, but
there Is an evil condition to deal
with, not only in Cranbrook but everywhere.
A number of disorderly bouses
were recently raided iu Lotiihridgc
and this is what Uie Lethbrkige Herald aays about their prosecution: —
"How difficult it is to obtain a prosecution in tlie "case of disorderly
houses was shown at Uie city police
court when Magistrate Irwin had lie-
fore him a number of women urrest-
ed on Uio charge of keeping bandy
houses. Tbey were all former residents In tlie restricted area before it
was done away witli."^"tIivo of ftom
deposed that they were both married
women and were not guilty of the
charge preferred against them. Tiie
only men who visited them were
friends, those who were working for
their husbands. The two Japs who
were up along with them in the court
for being frequenters, they averred
wero at the house for getting money
owing them for the sale of vegetables. Another ln her evidence said
that nhe was of Independent moans,
being in receipt of $150 a month
from two furnished houses sho owned
in Revelstoke, B. C, and the interest
from |10,000 she had invested in Victory bonds. The magistrate dismissed tlie charge ln that the evidence
waa not sufficient for conviction."
The question resolves itself into
one of either being controlled by
these Immoral Interests or controlling them.
The Cranbrook pollcB were Instructed by the police commissioners
to give thirty days notice to tbe occil-
plern of houses suspected of being
used for immoral purposes, hut these
women claim thut thoy are property
holders and living within their right
They may be right at that, we hae
our doots. Buf what right have w
to send these people to Fernie, ir we
believe ln the law that "thou shall
love thy uoighbor as thyself?" \V
can't hang them nor burn them allvi
but we can restrict their sphere of

The Peace Day was celebrated In
ParlB on July 14th. The place of
honor In the procession was given to
tbe wounded men—the halt, tiie lame
tbe bl|nd, those who were lu wheel
chairs, on crutches or limped along
with the aid of canes. Tho men wiio
came as near making the supreme
sacrifice as they could and yet be
able to attend a peace celebration—a
peace with honor, a victorious peace,
Pew of them were in uniform. They
represented all the provinces of
France. Tbey made no effort
maintain military formation, hut they
marched as well as they could to the
airs played by the band which led
them. Great crowds filled every Inch
ot space in the many streets and boulevards that commanded a view of tho
line of march. Balconies were packed and roofs were black with people.
Many hung In tbo trees which lined
the boulevards. Tlie wounded soldiers were a surprise to the crowd,
which wus slow to realize who tiio
men were because of tholr disorganized and non-military appearance.
But when the grout throng grnsped
the situation, cheers rose, slowly ut
first, and were taken up by the
crowds far from the line of march,

The recent decision to proceed with
the super-power station scheme for

to our notice what should bo done
along those lines on » more modest
Mali- in certain portions of Canada,
The British plan to Improve lhe
Bupply of electricity throughout Britain contemplates the reptacemenl of
tlie numorous small Btationfl now in
operation, by fewer but much larger
Btartona supplying extensive districts
through high tension transmission
networks. There will be a gain both
in economy and fudi conservation and
in many case:
will Ik- mtlCl
tional electric supply operates under
the supervision of five commissioners
a ppoln I ed by I bo Hoard of Trade;
tiiese In tlirn appoint District Hoards
which include representatives of electric undertakings, of large consumers and of labor.
Lancashire is to bo one of tlie first
areas dealt with, the county being divided into three districts. Some of
the smaller stations will probably be
shut down Immediately, the energy
transmitted from larger existing stations being substituted. Following

plants, Uio Commissioners will eliminate the remaining small stations
nnd. nlso. tho moderate-sized plants.
A similar situation, however, does
not occur iu Canada, as by far tlie
rger proportion of the capacity of
our hydro-electric stations is to be
found In what may be called "super
power" stations; many of them are
also interconnected to allow more efficient   operation.
British Columbia is an Instance In
point, as witness tlie Bonnlngton
Kalis super-power plant, which supplies so much of tbe Southern part of
iho province and which, it is expected
will bo extended to Kimberley and intervening points.
There is, however, a portion of Canada whore the absence of water
power mahos it necessary to supply
power from steam or other fuel agencies, Thla* areu, which comprises
Southern Saskatchewan und adjacent
portion's of Manitoba, and Alberta, is
becoming of much importance thru
its rapid agricultural expansion and
its future needs should be anticipated
so far as possible.
As pofntd out in a report on Electric Generation and Distribution in
Canada, recently published by the
Com mission of Conservation, ade-
ilimlo supply of electric energy In
this section is confined to a few large
centres. Tlie smaller municipalities
have Installed small electric plants
which aro usually very expensive to
operate and only give a night service. The rates which have consequently to be charged and tlie limited
service prevent tiie full benefit which
should otherwise be enjoyed from the
various uses of electric energy. All
these small plants through concerted
action could be replaced by a few
largo and more efficient ones, each
supplying a fairly extensive district
by moans of electric transmission
lines. The cost of production would
be reduced to about one-third and a
bettor service supplied.
Tlie example given In tbe ubove-
mentloned report illustrates the possibilities in tbo Estavan district. A
central power plant at Estavan would
supply transmission lines radiating
in various directions covering a total
length of 160 miles. The estimated
domand, based on the requirements
of the near future, shows a total of
sume (100 li. p. mitslde of Kslnvim. As
the lines would only carry a light
load they could be built cheaply with
light conductors and at a cost possibly not exceeding hmjoo per mile, if
wo allow a loud factor of 40 per cent
the cost of construction would average 2% cents per It. w. ll, The cost
of production In the central plant
would be from 2\<< cents to 8 cents
per It. w. b.. so t tint the electricity
could he delivered for an average of
rrom 6 to ;">>{. cents per It. w, b. at the
various small centres supplied. With
a small plain, tbo present cost runs
as high us from lf> cents to 19 cents
per k. w. li. Numerous other districts
if treutod In (lie sumo wny, would
probably  show  advantageous  results,
Tho arrangements for the convention of the Western Canada Irrigation Association at .Medicine Hat, Al-
berta, August 4tll. fUli apd 0th, are
now nearly completed, Judging from
the Interest thai is being shown In
thc convention not only among farmers in Alberta and tlie adjoining provinces of Saskatchewan nnd British
Columbia, but in the East and the
United Slates, it will be one of the
most successful in tbe history of the
Those who have promised to be pre
sent and probably address tbe convention Include His Honor Lieut en

\ feature of the convention this
year will be u visit to the model farm
of tlie Cannda hand and Irrigation
Company at Ronalane. Tills company Is chartering a special train to
convey the delegates and their
friends from Medicine Hat to Ronalane and back. At the farm there will
bo a practical demonstration given of
farming under irrigation. - Actual
field operation will be conducted In
respect to Uie preparation of land for
different  methods of Irrigation.   Af
terwards the purposes for which the
various Implements are used will be
discussed, as well as the comparative yields of crops under different
applications of water, crop values
and stock raising as a means of marketing farm qroduofo
Practical addresses will be given
by practical men on subjects of interest to farmers generally and lrrl-
gatiouists In particular. They include such topics as 'increasing Profits with tbe Silo," on which Mr. G.
II. Button and Mr. Sydney Carlyle
will speak; "hive stock and the Irrigated Farm," whicli will probably be
dealt With by Professor W. L. Carlyle, of Calgary; "Commercial Seed
Growing, " "Profitable Irrigation
Crops," "Trees on the Farm," "The
Economic Phase of Irrigation," nnd
ninny other subjects.
A sitrong local board of control under the presidency of Mr. E. L. Chud-
