Boys And Dads
Have Great Time
Get-Toipether Gathering Friday
Kveiiinir Lust Carried Out
Success fully
(Specially reported for the Herald)
One of the finest gatherings ever
held In this city took piece last weekender tho auspices ol the Y.M.C.A.
over two hundred and tuty boys and
fathers gathered un Friday evening in
lho Parish Hall lu a Father and Son
get-together celebration. A splendid
program of addresses, music, gameB,
and tlm best of eats was carried
through without a single hitch. En-
tbuslasm and goodwill prevailed to
such an extent that it ls sufe to say
tiiat a lasting impression for good
was received by both boys and fathers.
Several visitors from outside were
present nn guests and tbey spoke In
glowing terms of tho plan, and comparing tills gathering with others of
like character uttended elsewhere declared that they had seen nothing better anywhere.
The secretary of tbe Y.M.C.A-, Mr.
J. M. Clark, and Its executive, under
the chairmanship of Mr. J. L. Palmer,
have every reason to be proud of the
splendid opportunity given for boys
nnd dads to get togttlier ln such a
unique social way.
Tho hall was decorated with evergreens to represent a camp, which
was fitted out with tent and tlie usual
camping outfit; even tbo camp fire
was not forgotten. The meeting was
opened ut 8 o'clock with Mr. Palmer
in the chair. After a brief prayer by
Mr. J. M. (.'lurk, the chairman outlined the plan of the meeting In u few
opening remarks. Two fine quartettes
wero given by the Baptist church
quartette, "The Owl and the Pussy
Cat," and an encore, "There was a
Boy—There was a Tack." Messrs-
Palmer, Williams, Smith and Hinton
gave a good account of themselves ln
theso selections, and especially In
their closing number "The Wayside
Cross." A pianoforte selection was
also given during the evening by Mr.
Gross. Several short addresses were
given, Interspersed by a sing-song or
Undef the topic ot "Boys Today-
Men Tomorrow.* Principal Armstrong
of the High School spoke of the Importance and Ideals ot the movement,
In particular he referred to the great
question of vocational choice. Pointing out that a misfit was a moral and
economic loss to a community he urged fathers to give every possible assistance, without Indulging their own
pet ambition to the limit. A vocation
waB to be more than a channel for
the earning of one's dally bread; It
was an opportunity for rendering ser
vice to the rommuntty, and the development of character, the real goal of
life. The toast to "Oud Dads"' was responded to by Gordon Armstrong, of
the first year high school. In a neat
speech the speaker stated that the
father was the boy's ideal. As men
competed In business and In commercial production, so fathers ought to
compete in raising the best family.
Surely boys were of more value goods
or animals. It was claimed that sometimes dad was strict and oue had to
"toe the mark," hut then dad had often to do so too, especially when
mother and sister began to take him
In hand. Major Hicks responded to
the toast to "Our Boys," pointing out
the Importance of boy's work and the
tremendous problem which faced the
nation. The hoy and girl claimed
first attention. W. Manning, of the
entrance class, replied to the toast
"Dad and I." It was well stated that
boys need their fathers. True comradeship would eliminate the possibilities of friction and misunderstanding. Dad and his boys should be real
chums. With such chums dad would
never grow old. The best feuslness
successes of the past were conducted
by "father and son." If the boyB and
their dads learned to play together
they would learn to work together.
In replying to the same toast, W. D,
Gilroy included in his remarks, quotations from a very telling modem parable "Prodigal Fathers,
At a special session of the school
board held on Friday evening of last
week estimates for the coming year
were considered. The total finally
arrived at for the estimated expenditure waB $37,980, or about $5,000
more than for 1920, wheu the estimates totalled $33,000.
Following are the main items in the
1921 estimates: ,

P. A- O'Farrell, tlie well known
writer and traveller, who hus recently returned from a trtip ta the Old
Country, was a guest in Cranbrook
for a short time Tuesday, having arrived In the city on Sunday.
In Superintendent Hall's private
car, Mr. O'Farrell and Mr. W. Bloom-
enthal, a New York capitalist, left
Cranbrook Sunday for KimU-rky to
inspect the famous Sullivan mine of
Tbe Consolidated Mining aud Smelting
Co., of Canada, Limited. The party
remained over until Tuesday, the
guests of Supt. Edward G. Montgomery, being met at the mine ou Monday evening by mine manager Willlam
M. Archibald, of Rossland, and shown
over the workings.
ThlB Is Mr. Bloomenthal's first trip
to Western Canada and he was amazed at the magnitude of the Sullivan
mine. To a Herald representative he
said "the Sullivan Ib undoubtedly the
biggest mine of Its kind In the world.
There are mountains of ore at Kimberley and this section of your province certainly has a great future
through Its mineral resources."
Tuesday, on the westbound train,
Messrs. O'Farrell, Bloomenth.il and
Archibald were guests of Supt. Hall

May  Formally Incorporate  In
Order to Better Carry On
Aims of Association
On February 21st the annual meeting of the B.C. Prospectors' Association was held tn the city hall at which
a fairly representative gathering of
prospectors was in attendance.
Officers for the ensuing year wero
elected as follows:
Hon. President

W. H. UvUlson, the Jeweler, ls ln receipt of tbe two handsome cups donated by the Fink Mercantile Company
and himself to the Windermere district Stock Breeders' Association, and
the trophies are fine examples of the

Engraved on the Fink cup In handsomely designed lettering is the following Inscription: "Presented to
Windermere Stock Breeders' Association by Fink Mercantile Company,
Cranbrook, B.C.
A similar Inscription is engraved
on the cup given by Mr. Wllaon, and
both the cups are mounted upon handsome mahogany bases.
At a meeting of the Wild Horse
Creek Mining Co. held Monday evening, It was decided to secure the services of an expert placer mining man
and fully develop the holdings of the
company as soon as weather will permit of operations. Mr. Harry Gamble,
It Is said, may again be In charge.

nail on the head. Fathers sometimes
logo their sons, but too often forgot
them and departed Into the distant
land of stocks, bonds, and business,
and discovered when too late that tbey
had lost tbelr boys, finding them beyond their help end encouragement.
In speaking on "Our Homes" O. J.
Spreull did not forget the mothers.

emphasized to the full. Courtesy
brings Its own reward—the courteous
boy and man ever haB the advantage
over the blunt, brusque Individual, In
the final outcome.
James Logan and Leonard Burtoe
both of the High School, responded
to the interesting toast "What a Boy
Expects of His Father." In a burlesque manner the former listed the
many things a modern boy expects of
his father. The expectations were not
numerous—dad was expected to arise
first, look after the kindling and tho
coal; provide a Ford or something
else, and not to forget to receive a
fellow's best girl in a kindly fashion

The Prospectors' Association took
up with the Board of Trade last weekend the matter of the attendance of
a delegate from this district at the

After the general business of attending to the corespondence was completed the general report of the year's
work was given by tho secretary, who
briefly explained that iu preparing a
detailed report lt had been found inadvisable to attempt to crowd It into
the annual meeting when so much urgent business was awaiting attention.
Only a brief summary therefore would
bo given and the general report should
bo considered at more leisure when
some provision shall have been made
for the accumulated work and business resulting from the past year's effectual endeavors along thy lines of
In briefly summarizing the work
done and the expenditures lu connection therewith, it was shown that
when reduced to a unit basis, exclusive of volunteer labors ot the Prospectors' Association, it cost only $4
per property to secure the advertising
uecesary to result ln the examination
of at least 50 different prospects at
a unit cost of 112 50. Including the
14 for advertising. Further the most
important of all was tlie fact that
through the efforts ot the organization
this cash outlay had been returned indirectly to tbe extent of at least 250
per cent, by way of outside money
brought Into and spent with the people
of thla immediate vicinity, to say nothing of what might have been ..pent in
the other pans ot East Kootenay
which are yet not quite as active as
thla district. Still further the association wns shown to be prepared to
carry on tts plans during the coming
season, with its present supplies and
an accumulated amount of data away
beyond tbe most sanguine expectations of the promotor3 a short year
ago. Financial support only is needed
to provide the attention to the business that has been developed; that ls
to say, connection with tbe right class
of people has been made tn an effective manner and during the next seaaon it Is up to the local owners to attend to the salesmanship. Failure to
secure sales will rest upon the owners
the customers have been found but
the volunteer effortB are at an tnd so
far as certain mining enthusiasts are
concerned unless the results are fully

As a result of the discussion which
followed the reading of the annual
general report it waa proposed to form
a promotion and developing company
with a charter to enable It to implement the labors of the past experimental season. A motion was carried
to that effect, authoring the executive
to proceed with the organization work
along the lines suggested by Mr. McPhee who very effectively explained
the value of the association's work
in behalf of East Kootenay and the
advisability of lt being perpetuated,
in a way worthy of the sacrifices that
have undoubtedly been made by a few
of the members of the Prospectors'

Arrays ol' figures are never
very interesting unless analyzed anil so made Intelligible, 'i'lie
school board Ims brought down
its estimates lur the coming
year, anil ihey appear in summarized form elsewhere in Ihis
issue. Approximately $38,000
will be necessary lo take care
of the schools' requirements in
lite district. Towards this amount, of course, there will he a
grant from the provincial gov
eminent, revenue from Ihis
source during tlie past year amounting to $S,:mo, with the expectation of a slight increase
in this respect lor the coining
On a basis of a school population of 034, which we believe
has been increased since the
beginning of the year, the average cost per pupil works onl
at $60 per year, it is well to
compare this with Ihe figures
given by the Minister of Edll-
catiotl in iiis reporl to (he Legislature last week. JJr. Mac-
Lean stated Ihat tlie average
cost of education per pupil all
through the province was about $70. it would thus appear
that Cranbrook is able to give
a better showing in this respect than many other communities. On the basis uf a saving
of $10 per pupil over the average eust throughout tlie province it is seen that Cranhrook
is effecting a saving of more
than six thousand dollars,
something worth considering
Comparisons with otlier towns
of similar size would show up
this city in an even more fav
orable light. Recent reports
gave one town in the Interior
an average eost per pupil of
almost $80, though it should be
stated that in this case more
manual traing work was carried on, and in addition, domestic science and agricultural
work in connection with the
Jiigh school. Special grants,
however, are secured from the
government for the agricultural work.
It is evident that when the
school estimates are looked at
in the light of this information,
the people of Ihis district have
little cause to complain on the
score of taxation for school
purposes. The service given
here compares very favorably
with that rendered in otlier
places, imt Cranbrook ought
not to be satisfied until it is
surpassing otlier points. Taxation for educational purposes
is not an impost, but an investment of the first rank. A lirst
class school system, from tlte
standpoints of leaching calibre,
buildings and equipment
means much more to a community than most citizens are
prepared to admit, but in tlie
final analysis this is very apparent.
The leader of the B. C. government, not having received
any definite assurance that the
federal government will grant
to this province the desired
monopoly on the importation
of liquor, has propounded a section in the proposed moderation bill to provide for a duty of
a considerable amount on liquor imported by private individuals. But in all probability
it will be discovered that this
is ultra vires, for tinder the British North America Act (he provinces have not, the power to
tax inter-provincial trade in
this manner.
A review of the proposed bill
as a whole reveals very clearly the difficulties of effective II-
ipareutly no
slated right to prohibit importation by private individuals
So long as this source of supply
available, the task seems
hopeless. To realize the large
proposed profits, either an Im
mense amount of liquor must
be sold under government aus
pices — and if so where does
control become apparent? — or
else the government liquor
cannot be sold much cheaper
than that secured from other
sources. With the further necessity of securing permits, and
the possibilities of crooked
work in that direction, it remains to be seen if such a system as Ihat proposed is going
to work out with proper effect
in curbing the admitted evils
which have grown up round the
use of liquor,
Man has many friends, and
among them the white, fleecy
snow is one of the best. At
I hues man is apt to treat his old
friend slightingly, and the
snow receives its greatest praises when the temperature

unsightliness is banished. With
Iho approach of spring there
ought to be some effort at a

city, and the back yard should
come in for its due share of attention. Why should there be
Queen Mary fronts and Mary

The day of wonders never
passes by. The latest wonder
for western Canada is the project of some good, honest and
presumably hard-headed farmers in the Medicine Hat district. In all seriousness they
have planned a rainmaking
campaign, with a professional
rainmaker as managing director. A contract to this effect
has been duly signed, sealed
and delivered, and some good
money placed In escrow in the
bank in good faith. It strikes
one forcibly, however, that the
contract price for the rain is
ridiculously low. One might
expect a tremendous price for
such an undertaking, but the
actual consideration is such
that there can be no complaints
as to the high cost of rain. Had
tlie price named been a hundred times greater there might
be more faith put in the enterprise. Any man who can produce rain according to the
claims of the rainmaker ln
question ought to be able to demand any figure within the
realm of mathematics. The
amount quoted is a mere trifle
compared to a conservative estimate of crops which can be
produced if the requisite amount of contract rain is duly delivered. A paltry eight thousand dollars Is all the meteorological wizard in question Is to
receive is he Is successful in
making the skies weep in just
the right quantities to bring on
tho crops to the best advantage.

District engineers of the department
of Public Works were entertained by
Hon. J. H. King, minister of that department, at a dinner nt his home in
Victoria last week. A free discussion
of the problems met with by the engineers ln their various districts took
place , ln which some interesting disclosures were made. For Instance
Mr. P. Philip, newly appointed pu'Jllc
works engineer, stated that there were
14,000 miles of roads in British Columbia.
Hon. Dr. K/ng spoke of the happy
relations which hnd existed between
himself as head of the department and
tho engineers. The latter were making a nnme for themselves in this
province, he declared, since despite
tho free criticisms coming from "various disgruntled persons," there was
llttlo fault found with the provincial
highways when it was remembered
that the country to be served was of
so great an extent and the financial
means comparatively small.
Deputy minister J. E. Griffith spoke
of the cordial relations existing and
said he felt that the engineers must
be diplomats as well as roadmakers.
Theirs was a peculiar problem and not
all a simple one.

Tlie Speech fnnu tho Throne and

one could wish to see. There bad been
rumors that the Speech would put Hie
Liberals and tiie Crerarites in. > n
rather awkward corner. When ;t came
to light it was seen to contain a refer-

tliey framed an amendme
tailing merely for an expression of
wani uf confidence in tlie admlnistra-'
tion. Tin- cleverness of tlieso moves
Will bu appreciated by those used to
the game. It was Quite evident that
Old heads had framed tho amendment,
and Fielding fs credited with having
had a hand in ll. it was also un indi
caWon thut considerable adroitness
was to be expected during the session.
One of thc most important points
developed In King's argument against
the continuance of the government In
office was that this is not the same
kind of a government as was tbat led
liy Sir Robert Borden, He contended
that tbo Melghen government was not
a Union government) as was sir Robert BordOD's, nor a Conservative gov-
ernment, it was a brand new thing
and ho should appeal to Hie people
i'or mandate, it was a m w argument
autl remained unanswered.
King's contention that tlie government had no mandate to revise tht.
tftrltt laid him open to a damaging reply which tin I'rime Minister was not
slow to deliver. Had not the Opposl
tion leader last year criticized the
government for not having proceeded
wllh tariff revision? Assuredly he hnd.
The point was well taken, the opening
being such as the Prime Minister re-
vols in. His drawing of contrasts between tho Opposition leader's speeches
in the West and Gordon's statements
in Peterboro was clever.
It must be said that while both leaders showed excellent form, the matter,
considering the nature of the problems
beforo tho country, left something f.o
be desired. The Question of ambassadorial representation nt Washington
was not mentioned, nothing was said
about tho Prime Minister's conference
that is to be held in Loudon during
June; there was no mention of the
railway and otlier pressing problems,
Prom the standpoint of tncties, King
was doubtless justified in confining
his attack to the question of tlie government's right to office; but at the
opening of Parliament tlie public na-t
urally expects from those who direct
its affairs a general statement on the
issues of the day.
Tlie debate disclosed that insofar as
tho old parties nre concerned, tbe
tariff is not the outstanding issue, that
is to say, it is not the 'issue it was in
1911. nor will it be. The government
has tried hard to make it so, but the
Liberals have refused to bo forced Into
what they consider to be a false position. Quebec's support is the Important consideration just now, and that
province would leave tbe tariff pretty
much as It is.
Looking over the situation it is Quite
evident that In point of debating ahfil-
ity the Liberals are stronger now than
Ihey have been at any other time In
the life of tiio present Parliament.
Following the election of 1917 the government had It over them very badly
in this respect; but tlie advantage has
disappeared, and unless some new
blood, not yet in evidence, comes to
Hie rescue, the lost advantage will not
be regained. The National Progressives have got away to a late start,
and it will tako some time for them to
catch up. During a, session In which
speaking is likely to bo an important
factor, they will very probably be
li an tli capped.
Tho air of Parliament hill is thick
With rumors of Cabinet reorganization,
so much so that it ls difficult to distinguish the true from the false. Tho
propaganda feature is present in some
of the stories, so thnt when sifted a
great many of Hie reports are nothing
moro than what some friends of the
government think should bo done.
Thero aro two groups both having de-
Idedly strong but opposite opinions
as to what should ho done. One lipids
that an Infusion of new blood is absolutely necessary, and that to secure
it strong risks should be taken on by-
clei.lions. Tho other group while admitting that reorganization Is deslr-
ible. holds that tho present is not
tho moment, nnd thnt to open seats
fs hut to court disaster. These advisers say that the country is settling
down, that It is not as thoroughly opposed to tho govornment as it was a
year ago, for which reason reorganization may safely he delayed. The ro-
SUll will he that the longer tho subject
Is debated the fewor changes there
will be.
In considering the probability of
changes in tho Cabinet, lt la well to
boar in mind that to hold by-oloctlons
during tho session Is not considered
good tactics. Sometimes they cannot
be avoided, hut they are rarely courted. Tho Quebec representation will
roccivo first attention, If anything can

the opinion that those who have asked
for thlB were justified by the soundest
"For these reasons I read thc
resolution passed by the Prospectors'
Association recently with special Interest and am pleased to bo able to

the recent war as one of tho small
bonrd of psychologists, who, acting
under the American War Department,
developed a series of mental tests for
use in the United States Army. He Ib

Mr. E. C, Thomas, of I-loydmin-
Rter, cow testing supervisor for Sup-
hatchewnn for the Dairy nnd Cold
Storage branch of the Department of
Agriculture, Ottawa, writes: The

A lecture on geology, by A. G.
Langley, resident district mining engineer, has been arranged to take
place on Monday evening next, March
7th. iu the city hall, Cranbroolt; at

continuance of tho scheme whereby
n practical means of education Is being provided for tho futuro beuoflt of
all. The school teachers and pupils
ol' the highest grades should be encouraged by the trustees by wuy of
attendance at this lecture.
A general discussion of the subject
especially in its practical application
will follow the address and that is
the main source of greatest service,
and evidence uf appreciation.
Tho lecture will be followed by a
smoker to be given by thc Itetail Merchants Association, similar in form lo
that tendered the farmers last year.
Many prospectors will probably be in
attendance from outside points, and
the time will be opportune for a gen-
oral  get-together meeting.
Mr. J. F. Huchcroft. secretary of
the Prospectors Association, presented
a detailed report of the work carried
on during the past year, which rends
as follows:
Gentlemen: In preparing an annual
report for this association, covering fully even in a general way the
work done and results accomplished,
I must admit that the effect of this
report will not be nearly so serviceable in the interests of East Kootenay prospectors as would a detailed
report which unfortunately time will
not permit to be rendered and dis
cussed in one evening, especially in
view of other very important mat
ttSrs that should come up at this meeting.
Thereforoonly a brief summary of
the work and results of our initial
year will be made along with some
reference to tbe impression made up
on non-residents but interested mining
engineers with whom we have established a fairly creditable connection
during our experimental efforts along
publicity lines.
Wo started out with an estimated
support of 100 members but to date
only somo CI have mado full number,
ship payments and two paid 20 per
cent, rates; Borne eight or ten wero
reported by the membership commit
tee as to be relied upon for the full
membership fees. As yet theso havo
not materialized and until such do It
will bo impracticable to make a complete treasurer's report, unless as
treasurer one remaining bill of expense is paid personally. This wilt
bo done before next meeting at which
the treasury report will be presented-
Finding that the publicity work
was likely to entail more expense than
wo were able to undertake we solicited and secured tho backing ot the
Cranbrook Board of Trade to the extent of $50.00 in connection witli our
Spokane exhibit and ¥125.00 towards
the Seattle exhibit and about $50 towards the New York exhibit.
Some eighty distinct properties were
represented in tho convention exhibits from Fort Steele Mining Division
and tho Windermere exhibit, which
we were loaned by Windermere Board
of Trade, contained 78 specimens from
about the same number of properties,
or all told nliout 155 properties'were
advertised, at tbe expense of about $4
per property. These efforts secured
at least 50 examinations at a cost of
about $12.50 apiece by at least 30
different mining   engineers,    costing

"To harvest the crop mnny fnrm-

driven by a 15-H.P. engine, will
handle thc crop as fast as it can
be hnd.
"Most of the silos wore stave, furnished by the supply houses. A few
pit riles hnd staves above. In one
instance, an ordinary two by six

We havo acted upon some 33 resolutions initiated within ourselves and
secured satisfactory results upon
practically all of them, excepting two
or possibly throe. Likewise we have
endorsed several resolutions initiated
by a similar organization operating ln
West Kootenay and other adjoining
districts. Again we are now established in a good working connection
with the organized prospectors and
miners of Omlneca district with headquarters at Smithers, B.C., and much
good can be done in co-operation with
them in provincial matters as a whole
and likewise with the Dominion. This
is an exceedingly important move and
should be enlarged upon during the
coming season.
Assurances havo boon received as
a result of a consultation with tho
proper parties that the financial
means will become available whereby
an opportunity will be given or at
least become available to complete tho
organization of a provincial executive
this coming spring to act as a nucleus
out of which may dovelop a provincial organization acting on similar
lines to those which wo have followed
during 1920.

same is now ready for service as soon
as a suitable office can be sqr.urcd
for it nnd all the available reports
and other sources of valuable information accumulated during the past
season. We have another fifty identified samples on order for our use
under similar conditions.
A detailed list of our resolutions is

tho Department of Mines for free assay or assayed with C. M. FttBBBtt Co.

cases partly borne by the members
Wo have secured the Information
that any prospector may now have a
bona fide sample assayed by sending
same to the Department of Mines at
Victoria and stating the test desired,
with no cost to the prospectors.
We now have word that our Seattle

The same applies to many other

In order that tlie membership may
attain some idea of the work we havo
done during the past year let it be
itatod that about six hundred circular
letters havo been sent out, two hundred otlier letters bave boon attended
to, many of which have required careful consideration from many angles-
Deals have been arranged and are
now pending. Inspections are being
arranged for the coming season. Arrangements that fell through for last
year are to he revived for 1921. All
the details in connection with these
matters must be carefully attended to

of last season's work Is likely to mean
an increased amount this year.

We had a letter from a man
who operates a small mine up
the coast. He says he Is glad
to know Pacific Milk '.s better
value than any he has tried.
According to his statement,
it ls only reasonable that milk
put up In British Columbia
should be better than Eastern
milk because our cows are not
subject to such severe weather
conditions. "Besides wo all
know B.C. ls one of the best
dairying countries in the world."

McLeod's Store,
Meeting opened al  8.15 on Tuesday
ovmlng  witli  Mr.  Armstrong in    tbo
Mr. Norman Moore, ttie affirmative
mover, commenced lis argument by
first declaring tiiat Protection was
not democratic. In (lie old buccaneering days when wolves of the seas
were abroad, lho fortress, now Gibraltar, was called Tarifa. Each ship
in passing tliis stronghold was forced
to pay a toll, in otlier words, robbed
of a certain amount of their own lawful goods. Thus tlie origin of the*
word "tariff," tiie principle of which
is still existing today. "It shows," he!
said, "how easy it is to fliick a man1
pocket nfter you bave chloroformed
him. It beueflts a certain small
class at tlie expense of the great majority. Under protection the burden
of taxation is shifted on to tbe shoulders of thc humble colters, not on to
tho*so of the mansion dwellers where
It rightfully belongs."
Another great drawback to protection, be thought, was that it injured
Canada economically; that tho adverse trade balance was in some measure responsible for the depreciation
of Canadian money.
"Trade." ho said, "cannot grow under protection, wihcli creates a people unnlndful and ignorant of tlieir
country's welfare and pollutes the finances of tho government." Quoting
John A. Macdonald. lie Bald tiiat "protection could be justified on political
grounds but not on economical
Dr. Rutledge. in his attack on free
trade pointed out that there were from
three to four million people directly
supported from the Industries of Canada. Now, if these industries were
not protected by tnrirr ft would simply
mean that Canada would become a
dumping ground, as it were, of the
rival natllons much to the detriment
of the best interests of Canada.
As regards transportation, the great
railway systems run from East to
West, but under free trade tiie traffic
would probably be from north to south
or vice versa, and so these great
railroads would suffer.
In 1919 twenty-two vessels were
built, manned and owned by Camul
inns, nnd carried Canadian products.
In 1920 the number bad increased to
forty, This would never have been
possible under free trade. Now thai
the barrier is being raised in all otlier
countries of tbo world, what would
happen if ours were suddenly lowered?
There nro just two courses open.
1. To supply and feed oilier countries, as under free trade or, 2, to
foster onr own Industries and give
Canada a chance to open and expand
us under protection. Which would
bo tbo better for Canada?
Mr. Bitistow, second speaker for the
affirmative, thought that protection
was morally unsound, that it gave rise j
to graft. He cited also, several instances of whoro goods manufactured
ln a protected country were much
dearer to Canada than goods manufactured in a free trade country.
Mr. McLennan, second supporter of
tho negative, declared that the economic pitcii of prosperity due to'protection was tlie only argument against
It. It was very conducive to making
a nation havo an attack of the "swelled head" ua we huve scon in lhe late
powerful Germany..
Periods of Industrial stagnation always follow free trade! and ranuiin in
thut condition until protection is again
In power nfter which wo havo prosperity. In six years of free trade
the savings banks of Germany show
ed a decrease of 108,000,000 marks,
whereas after six years of protection
thero was au .increase or 60,000,000
■ Following this speech Ihere was i\
brief period of general discussion during which Mr. Morris raised tho question as to why a certain lumber mill
on Puget Sound could go Into the B.C.
woods, tako back logs, pay a tax on
them, cut them up, pny another tax
and undersell B.C. lumber companies.
Another speaker, Mr. Morton,
thought that free trade might work
out better If tbe standards* of living
of nll nations, were the same but at
present it only sounds good in theory
wherous protection is better for practice.
The two movers were given a few
minutes each of rebuttal and then the
discusstion wns closed. Tlie chairman
expressed appreciation of the time
and service of tho speakers and, as
thero waa no further business the
mooting was adjourned.
