News of the death of William Walter Kilby early on Friday morning
last came as a painful surprise to his
many friends here. While it was
known that he had never seemed to
recover thoroughly from his severe
Illness of two or three years ngo,
up till a few days before his death
he had seemed in fairly good health,
which made the encompassing visitation of death seem all the more abrupt.
He was at his store early last week
as usual, but about the middle of the
woek remained home in bed, and
gradually his condition was seen to
grow worse. Dr. Green visited him
on Thursday evening, nnd he was
made as comfortable as possible, but
early next morning it was seen that
the end was near, and he passed away
about seven o'clock on Friday morning, the immediate cause of death
being pneumonia.
The late Mr. Kllby was a native of
Birmingham, England, and had been
in thii country for about twenty
years. He spent a short time in the
east and at Alberta points before
reaching Cranbrook about 1910, engaging first of all here in the barber
business. At the same time he carried on a aecond hand business, which
he later gave hia whole attention to,
and which he had carried on ever
One son survives him in England,
and one daughter in this city, Mrs.
Harry McDonald; another daughter,
the late Mrs. A. E. Turner, was also
well known here prior to her
death. The bereaved widow is well
known here, having resided here for
many years previous to her marriage
to Mr. Kilby, and also at Trail. Mr.
A. E. Turner and Mr. H. McDonald,
sons-in-law, Dennis and Elva Turner,:
grandchildren, and Eva Kilby, stepdaughter, are also among the rela-
tives who are mourning his death. I
Deceased had made many friends
here, having a pleasant disposition,
and a sense of humor that even ill-
health could not altogether dampen.
He was sixty-four years of age.
The funeral was held on Sunday
afternoon from the Anglican Church,
of which the deceased was a member, Rev. F. V. Harrison conducting
the services.    The funeral was quite
It is announced by the Government
Agent, J. E. Kennedy, that in order
to avoid the usual rush about the first
of April for the issue of motor licenses for the last three quarters of
the year, arrangements arc being
mnde so that these may be issued
from the 21st of Mnrch on, at the
government office. This privilege
wilt doubtless be appreciated to the
full by motorists, and should help to
eliminate the rush that is usually in
evidence for the first day or two in
April for the Issue »f motor licenses,
On Wednesday morning the wedding took place of Miss Jessie Cas-
sells of this city to Mr. K. Houghton
at the home of the bride's parents
on Watt Avenue, The bride looked
charming in a peach georgette dress,
and carried a bouquet of pink and
white carnations. She was given in
marriage by her father, Mr. R. Cas-
sellB, and was supported by Mi's. J.
Reekie, who was dressed in a sand-
beaded crepe-de-chine gown, and carried a bouquet of carnations.
The bride entered the living room
on the arm of her father, and the
ceremony took place under an arch
of mauve and white bells and streamers, the Rev. M. S. Blackburn officiating.
A buffet lunch was served to about
thirty guests, the wedding cake forming an attractive centre to the well-
arranged table. Mrs. Ross, of Cranbrook, and Mrs. Wise, of Moyie,
poured tea, assisted by Mrs. C. Price,
Miss J. Fennessey, Margmet Cassels
and Mrs. S. Malcolm.
The bride's uncle and aunt, Mr.
and Mrs. Cockshutt, of Bull River,
and Mrs. Wise, of Moyie, were out-
of-town guests. In the afternoon,
Mrs. Cassells, mother of the bride,
entertained a number of friends to
afternoon tea, while Mrs. Cockshutt
poured tea. Following is a list of
gifts received by the young couple:

one of. the heartiest evenings of
laughter that has been here for a
long time. The vehicle chosen Dy
this well known company was everything that a farce should be, and one
absurdity developed into another, till
at the climax It seemed like one con-
tinuous scream. The fertile brain of
Henry Simmons (Frank Vyvyan) in
concocting schemes of mild deceit,
was equal to any emergency, though
it was upon Chester Binny, his partner, (Lee Millar) that the brunt of
tho burden fell in seeing these bright
schemes through. Verna Felton,
star of the company, did not have a
heavy part, but was well received
when she appeared late in the progress of things. All the parts in the
caste were carried out most acceptably, and the Allen Players are likely to be received with an enthusiastic
welcome whenever their itinerary
brings them into this district.

Siege ef Lucknow Survivor
The Nelson News on Tuesday last
recorded the death of Mrs. ('. E. Hen-
derson-Cleland, at Crawford Bay, on
Sunday last, aged seventy-six years,
who is thought to have been the last
survivor of the famous siege of Lucknow, during the Indian Mutiny. Her
husband was a general in the Indian
army, and she was herself bom in
India, her father having been killed
in the enrly stages of the siege of
Lucknow. Loral in tei est attuches to
her passing, in that Mrs. Don Taylor,
of this city, is a grand-daughter of
the deceased lady.
On Monday evening last, about
thirty of Cranbrook's representative
citizens took (heir places around the
banquet tables In the V.M.C.A. dining hall. After partaking of a most
enjoyable dinner, wliich preceded the
annual board of trade meeting, the
minutes of the -previous meeting were
read and adopted, following which
president W. H. Wilson read his report for the past year, which is published in full elsewhere in this issue.
This report was received with
much enthusiasm by the members,
and a hearty vote of thanks was tendered the president for the completeness thereof. 'On motion of Messrs.
Scott and Spreull, the report wns
Mr. M. A, Beale, chairman of the
finance committee, then read his
statement of the financial affairs of
the board, which was also listened to
with interest. This report Is nlso
published in  this issue.
Effective Mining Publicity
Mr. W. S. Santo was given close
attention when lie gave his account
of the operations of the mining committee, which Is largely a reflection
of work he hus been responsible for.;
Several members of the board during
the evening referred   in   fluttering
terms to the manner in   which  Mr.
Santo had fulfilled the duties which
had  fallen   upon    him.    Mr.    Santo
stated thnt it hnd been a great pleasure to have been associated with tht
body of men which constituted  the
executive of the Cranbrook Board of
Trade, and they had all worked to- i
gether    in    perfect    harmony.    He,
trusted that as a result of their et'-]
forts,   muphl   benefit   w<«uld   nel rue >
to the city. ' He felt that the icpre-
sentation   mnde   by   tho   Board   of
Trade at the recent mining convention was of the very highest value.
The    attention    of    a    very    large
number    of    people     from     many
districts     were     now    drawn    to
Cranbrook   and- ('ranbrook   district
which hnd known little about it  before.      He   dealt   in   an   interesting
I manner  with  how,  through  his   np-
jpeaianee nt Nelson, he had been suc-
| cessful   in   re-locating the  Sullivnn
Mine, bringing it back to a situation
i adjacent   to   Cranbrook   instead   of
| Nelson, as he felt the Nelson people
desired to make it.    As a result of
letters of enquiry received from London, South  America and Africa, he
felt that the publicity gained by the
Nelson visit was well worth ull the
efforts thnt had been made upon it.
He  referred  to   the  invitation   that
had been extended by the Cranbrook
Board of Trade through him for the
  joint meeting of the B.C. Mining Institute and the Mining Institute of

Monday of this week the road to
Kimberley was closed to motor traffic, this policy being carried out to
save thc road getting cut up any
more by the heavy stage car and
truck traffic. It has been bad from
Wycliffe to Marysville, and in one or
two bad places on the way to
Wycliffe, and while the resurfacing
done last year on parts of the road
has stood up fairly well so far, many
more days of traffic in this soft weather would undoubtedly make it just)
as bad as any other part. How long
the road will remain closed depends
entirely on the weather conditions,
Emergency traffic is allowed still at
the discretion of the provincial
police. Work on the road to put it
in shape for traffic again will likely
commence as soon as the frost is out
sufficiently to permit this.
Clever Comedian Turn
On Monday and Tuesday evening
the pal:oris of the Star Theatre were
given a treat when Mr. Bert Taylor,
the Australian comedian appeared in
the vaudeville sketch entitled "In
Society." Those who had the pleasure of attending, particularly on
Monday evening, when Mr. Tay'or
i hud an opportunity of entertaining
| the house for over half an hour, all
' agreed that Mr. Taylor is a very uble

Mayor Roberts was elected one of
the Vice Presidents at the big provincial Liberal convention held in
Vancouver Inst week. Mrs. Mary
Ellen Smith, M.L.A., wns again elected president of the organization. The
next convention is to he held at Kamloops.
Among the main features of the
big convention was a decision to
endeavor to keep contributions to
campaign funds in such condition
that they can be published at any
time, this decision being arrived at
as the result of the recent revelations
regarding cnnipajgn funds coming
from liquor interests. One of the
features of the convention was a fervent address by the premier in whicli
he extolled Liberal principles nnd
what he considered they had done for
the province.
Practically every •'Liberal member
of the legislature and every minister
of the cabinet with the exception of
Hon. Win. Sloan, who is dropping out
of politic) owing to ill health, were
present at the big gathering.

Report of President of Board
of Trade Shows Much Activity I
Tourist Traffic Still On Increase; Emphasis Also
On Mining
Following is the comprehensive report submitted to the annual board
of trade meeting on Mondny evening
by the president, W. H. Wilson:
"In submitting a report of activities
of the Cranbrook Board of Trade
during the year 1926, you will agree
with me, I think, when I make the
statement that tne optimistic note
■truck twelve months ago echoed
throughout the .entire year. Thc
meetings held, have been most harmonious, and the work of committees
of excellence and painstaking effort, exceptionally good. I confess
to a sense of compliment in having
had tht support of a body of business
men of the calibre and stamina of the
executive committee and members of
the Cranbrook Board of Trade.
Province Had Successful Year
■ "Before going on to the reading of
a summary of tne local board's activities, I may be allowed to point to a
few outstanding- facta as indicating
the twelve months just past as being
industrially speaking, the most successful year In tha history of British.

Value of timber production for the
year in estimated at $85,000,000, by
far the largest figure on record. The
increase of value in timber production in 1020 was $3,000,000 in excess of thc record for 1925, despite
general decline in lumber prices of
approximately 5%. Growth in value
was incidental to a 15:, increase in
production, the log scale for the year
reaching a total of .1,000,000,000

"In agriculture the province made
a startling advance with a total production valued at $69,000,000 as
against a production value of $65,-
000,000 reached in 1925. This was
due to expansion in many directions,
notably in dairying,
"On the whole, the volume of business in 1926 may be regarded as
marking definite and satisfactory improvement of agricultural conditions
since the war, nnd thc beginning of
an era of stability in farming.
"The mining Industry has also
made tremendous strides towards
greater output of metals. The total

last year in the Windermere district.
Mr. F. Scott, covering thc work
of the Kntertainment and Transportation committees, referred to the
good work which had been done by
Mr. Graham iu taking care of the
two large banquets which hnd heen
held during the year, and took opportunity of thanking all those who
had so generously assisted him with
their cars in the transpoitntion of
delegates from Cranbrook to Kimherley and return.
On motion of Messrs. Nesbit und
Grubbe, these reports were adopted.
Tourist Park Better Still
As chairman of the publicity committee, Mr, J. P. Fink gave a brief
outline of the work which had been
done along this line during the past
year. For the coming year there
would be a continuance of the distribution of maps. With respect to
the pnrk, he claimed that ns a result
of a trip made by himself to the
Const, he was convinced that there
was no better camp site anywhere
This was

which has gone down into history as
thc most notable known since the
early gold rush days, remarkable not
only for total production, but also
that development recorded is of a
substantial character and is to be accepted as a barometrical indication of
future prosperity which will continue
to piow with the passage of time.
Jtbout $25,000,000 of new capital
was invested in mining during the
past year.

Knox Presbyterian Church of this
city had the pleasure uf acting as
hosts to the 1027 meeting of the
Presbyterial of the Women's Missionary Society of the Presbyterian
Church on Thursday and Friday of
last week, and that tliey did it with
credit to themselves was attested by
all the delegates present. No-
hing was left undone to ensure its
uccesd, with the result that the meetings were not only pleasant, but
profitable. This was the thirteenth
annual Kootenay Preabyterial mooting.
The opening session was a most
enjoyable supper given by the
ladies of Knox Church to the delegates and members of the Missionary
Society on Thursday evening, in the
Knox Church Sunday School room,
at which about forty sat down to a
most appetizing repast. The delegates wire welcomed by Mrs. McCurrach, Mrs. J. W. Dow, of
Creston, replying. A pleasing
feature of the function was the presence of delegates from other denominations and governing bodies of their
own society, all of whom brought
greeting from their respective organizations. These were as follows:
Mrs. W. B. McFarlane, United
Church; Mrs. (Rev.) Harrison, Anglican Church; Mrs. K. Birce. Baptist Church. Short addresses were
also given by Mrs. Lcdinghnm, Vancouver, B. C. Provincial Board; Mrs.
Pelton, Montreal, General Council.
Greetings were also brought by Mrs.
A. A. MacKinnon from Mrs. James,
of Kinloss, Ont., a former member of
the  Presbyterial.
During the evening, Mrs. J.. L.
Walker favored  with  a  piano solo.
Following the supper the registration of delegates took  place.
On Friday morning u business session was held, when, nfter devotional
exercises by the church auxiliary,
the minutes of the last Presbyterial
were  read,  and  committees  named.
Of much 'Interest to the delegates
present was the treasurer's report,
which showed that as a result of tht
work of the various societies composing thc Presbyterial they had been
uble to exceed their allocation by
18 per cent.
The report of the corresponding
secretary was read by Mrs. W. K
Worden. This showed thut whereas
at the end of 1025 the Presbyterial
consisted of two auxiliaries, today
four auxiliaiies, two associate societies, one Young Women's Auxiliary,
three Mission Bands and three C. G.
I. T. Groups made up the Presbyterial.
Friday   Afternoon   Sessioa
Following a roll call of the auxiliaries, Miss Pelton read a report
of the Missionary Department, after
which the election and Installation
of officers took place, those elected
to direct the affairs of the Presbyterial for the ensuing term being as

view to getting such a course added
to the university curriculum, but so

Basing her remarks on the passage
uf Scripture, "Ve are the light of
the world—The city that is set on
the hill cannot be hid," the speaker,
in a manner which was most effective, likened the individual life to that
of the humun candle, drawing the
analogy of the human to the waxen
candle. She likened the Presbyterial
to the city that is set on n hill,

Important fact that if they set their

New Nash Special Sedans
Set Style Trend In Body Design
Following the henaatiorial debut of the Ambassador
and Cavalier models at the New York Show, Nash
now presents two entirely new models of the same
general character of design, but priced bo aa to appeal
to an even wider market. Theso two new enclosed
cars aro the "Special" Sedans shown above. One U
mounted on the Advanced Six chassis and one oa
the Special Six chassis.
Six hundred and ninety-three automobiles — four solid trainloads —
were shipped recently from the company's factories to San Francisco and
Los Angeles. The cars were about
equally divided between Advanced
Six, Special Six and Light Six models. The cars will arrive on the Pacific coast in about ten days. As the
long trains laden with approrimately
three quarters of a million dollars
worth of automobiles, steamed out of
the yards for their long trip to California, they presented a graphic picture of industrial activity.
Included in the large shipment
were many of the new enclosed
models, recently introduced to the
public. These models have forward-
sweeping French type backs and
French type roofs, and, like all cars
in the Nash line, are equipped with
7-bearing crankshaft motors.
Coincident with thfl heavy coast
shipment,   it   is   announced   by   the
company thnt the "high ten" among
all Nash distributors sold 100'more
cars at retail during the week ending
February l!)th than wero sold in the
same period by the ten lending distributors a yenr ago.

lnvermere, B.C., March 15.—The
report of the directors given
by Major F. B. Young to the members of the Windermere District Association of Stockbreeders at their
annual meeting, dealt fully with thu
doings of that body. Major Young
"It is n pleasure to report that
in spite of the ups and downs of this
mortal life, that after twolve years
we are still an organization in good
condition and still going strong.
"Since the date of your last annual
meeting there were two general
meetings and two meetings of directors called. At one of the general
meetings, unfortunately, there were
not u sufficient number present to
form n quorum under the by-laws.
For this reason the Important question   of   whether   the   annua]   dues
should or : houtd not be reduced from
five dollars to three dollars, as called
for by Notice of Motion, could not
be passed upon, but a compromise
was made ' accepting three dollars
as payment on account of the current year's membership, nnd to further defer the question for settlement til) later.
"In spite of the lack of meetings,
business has been carried on as usual.
Due to cordial relationships with the
Claims Department of the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company several
claims were adjusted as between that
company and our members to the
satisfaction  of nil concerned.
"One claim of uncommon charncter happened during the vear, when
a steer wns killed bv being hit by an
automobile. After a little friendly
correspondence, this was settled on
the basis suggested bv the owner.
"The mooted question of whether
we shall or shall not continue to remain is again up for discussion.
"Two more persons interested in
stock have lately become members.
"Important developments are now
under consideration as to the form-
in- of a sale* market a' Vancouver.
In this connection, Mr. H. C. Rayson,
one of our members, attended a
meeting of thc committee held at
Kamloops, ainl is in a position to report   fully  on what was done there.
"It is with vgret that we learn
that Mr. George C. Hay, secretary of
lhe B.C. Live Stock Association, has
been drawn from the ranks of the
government to join a separate organization. What is our loss is, we
understand. Mr. Hay's financial guin.
We wish him all prosperity, and hope
one as good as himself will be placed
in his position.
"We have received official advice
that Mr. Thomas P. MaeKenzie, thc
Grazing Commissioner for the province, will be making his first official
visit in here, arriving on the 31st of
March. Subject to change, he hns
kindly offered to give us the benefit
of an afternoon's meeting on the 1st

we would like to see something done

see the rounding up of wild unbrand-

Alderman Flowers pointed oui
that since the lowering of the grade

on a very steep gradient out <-f the
valley to the top of the bank -passenger trains then backing Into the
South Edmonton station.
Passenger trains now take 4.r>
minutes to go from Edmonton sta-
tion to South Kdmonton station.
Freight trains are limited to very
light loads, partly on account of the
heavy gradients on the line ami because the motive power is limited
by the capacity of the low-level
bridge. The route via the new prn-
jwsed cut-off will save eleven mile*
in distance for all trains, and over

THURSDAY. MARCH  17th. 1927
FROM the program of conventions to visit Cranbrook district this coining year, it is evident
lhat East Kootenay is about to enter what is literally an era of world-wide advertising. Literature
has already been sent through the usual channels
of enquiry to many far-off corners of tlie globe, but
this year Crauhrook uili have the unique opportunity of welcoming visitor-; who are coming iu au
organized pnrt) from every part of the world. This
district owes its prominence on the itinerary of the
Empire Mining Congress primarily to the existence
close by of the Sullivan Mine, along with the concentrator that has grown up along with it, and it
or not, every person who writes a letter to an outside correspondent has the chance iu this respect
to form themselves into a miniature board of trade
of one. It does not take much effort to put in a
sentence or two ahout the district and what it has
to offer, and it is surprising what results these seemingly insignificant efforts sometimes lead to. Often
a chance word dropped and then forgotten, even,
leads ultimately to visitors coining who have an
eye to bti.siness or industrial opportunities, aud
there an1 few indeed who could not find the opportunity to ilo something iu this way.
That the Hoard of Trade, as an organization,
is doing its share in the good work, is evident from
ihe summary of activities given prominence elsewhere in this issue. No opportunities that come to
its notice are neglected, and the varied spheres it
has been engaging in show that all its apples have
is well that Cranbrook people in particular should   „„, |)Cl.„ pUt j,, (lllt, basket, nor all its means spent
ealize what a tremendous asset this undertaking i
Mining men engaged in undertakings iu all parts
of the world have come in quietly from time to time
to see how the riddle of the complex Sullivan ore
has heen solved, and how unbelievably high values
are extracted after it has been reduced to its constituent elements.
At the present time it looks as though the
Empire Mining Congress, for which already over
seven hundred delegates have placed their registrations, will lie lhe biggest thing of its kind that
East Kootenay has ever seen. It will be a big
undertaking I'or lhe Hoard of Trade to earry out
its part in the entertainment of such an excursion,
in which they will need the co-operation of every
person and organization interested iu spreading the
story of thc resources of the district abroad. It
will certainly provide an unparalleled "opportunity
to get in some advertising for the Cranbrook and
Kimberley districts, of which the fullest advantage
must be taken. From every continent iu the world
visitors will be here, as the partial list of registrations already made goes to show.
Other gatherings, connected with milling and
other spheres of development have also a visit to
this section of the province on tlieir programs for
the coming season, so that it looks as though there
i» a busy season ahead.
in any one channel. The better backing they get
the better they can function as an organization,
broadening out into all-for-everybody and every-
body-for-all spirit that can accomplish bigger things
than are vet conceived in this direction.
WHILE advertising the district, its development
and potentialities is rightly considered one of
the functions of a live Board of Trade, it is surprising what assistance and added weight can be
lent to their efforts bv almost anv individual resi-
0\V that the province has embarked on what
seems like a pretentious scheme of road work
that seems to be outlined ou something like the
comprehensive scale the development of vehicular
traffic would warrant, there is nothing to prevent
pressure being brought on the proper authorities
for the construction of a road between Cranbrook
and Kiniberley lhat would not merely include proper
surfacing, but rial permanent construction. It is
understood that the route has been re-snrveyed to
determine the changes that would have to he made
in the existing road to get tbe most desirable location for a new highway, and now the ultimate goal
must be a paved road. On account of its location,
Kimberley must always have its main highway outlet through Cranbrook, just as its rail outlet is. and
both places would benefit inestimably by the construction of an all-weather road. It would cost
what might seem like n staggering sum, but such an
outlay wi mid bc in the nature of an investment
for the province, wliich would soon pay for itself
in the decreased cost of maintenance. In thc neighboring slates across the border they have long
since learned the lesson that paved roads are economically sound though their first cost is high, and
ultimately it has got to come to this in this part
of the interior.   Why not start to go after it now?

After complimenting the Kootenay
Presbyterial on the wonderful growth
that had taken pluce in the lust year
and a half, as indicated by the large
number of societies represented at
the sessions, the speaker said she
felt that the church to which they
belonged had its mission to perform
as disciples and promptors of the
gospel of Christ.
Choosing ns the subject of her remarks a text taken from the thirty-
second verse of the 12th chapter of
John, "And I, if I be lifted up, will
draw all men unto me," she went on
to show how that Christ had been
lifted up and purged from all the
impurities of thc earth, nnd that the
Christian knew and was convinced
of the regenerative powers of the
Cross, and she felt that it was the
task and purpose of the church to
share the responsibility of making
known  the fact of the Cross.
Referring to the direct responsibility of the Presbyterian Church in
Canada, Miss Pelton commended the
membeis of that church for the way
in which they had loyally stood by
the principles which they hod loved
so well that they wore prepared to
make sacrifices in order that these
principles might be perpetuated, but
reminded them that if they occupied
a place in God's eternal purpose, ft
consisted in something beyond the
nurturing of themselves—it meant
the sending of the image of the Rock
upon which they themselves had built
to others.
To show how the dicerent nations
of the world were in.need of such
n message, the speaker gave a coin-
else und interesting resume of world
condition:; with respect to foreign
countries iu which Christianity was
.ls yet little known. China, in her
feverish struggle for international
independence, must embrace Christianity before she could succeed. India, with its twenty-five millions of

Our C.G.l.T. groups nre also active, under the general supervision

in the work, and the program outlined for the future meetings of the

(Continued from Page One)
I'iiil government adhered faithfully
to the promise made by the minister
n granting $15,11(10 to be expended
>n reconstruction of the Ynhk-Moyle
ink of the trans-provincial highway.
It is entirely to the credit of local
,d officials that the money was used
tn excellent advantage in reconstruction work.
"Il may also be in order for me to
tate that the Cranbrook Board of
Trade was largely instrumental in inducing the federal government to
rect a commodious clearing office for
tourist traffic at the port of Kings-
gate and an addition to the immigration office staff at that point. I cannot speak too highly of the courtesy
of Hon. .1. II. King, Minister of
Health and S.C.R., who kindly took
up the mutter of the Kingsgate offlce
with the government at Ottawa, with
speedy results.
"The board was less successful,
however, iu its drawing the attention
of the Canadian Pacific Railway to
the state of the crossing between the
city and the St. Eugene Hospital on
the Wycliffe road, nnd in making
recommendation that something bej
June by way of making the crossing |
safer to general traffic. I suggest
that the incoming executive again
approach the railway company with a
plea for better crossing conditions at
the point nnmed.
"While on ;he subject of roads,
I may also report that the board spent
$12fi in abatement of dust nuisance
on city streets in joining with the
Canadian Pacific Railway in gravelling the area parallelling the railway
tracks from the Y.M.C.A. to the
freight sheds, the company supplying
the material nnd the board engaging
to defray cost of spreading and roll-
ing the gravel with municipal employee and equipment.
"Other highway work undertaken
by the Cranbrook Board of Tcade was
the planting nnd cure of fifty trees
set out alone the public highway immediately to the northward of the
city, with the intention, provided the
experiment was successful, of further
beautifying public roads.
"The board also memoralized the
provincial government in respect of
larger road grants for the district,
specifying the Cranbrook-Kimberley
road particularly as a section of highway to which special attention should
be given.
"It may  bc snid without fear of
contradiction    that    1920   was   the
board's   big   publicity   year.   More
literature was sent out than ever before,   notably   illustrated   brochures
advertising Hast Kootenay, supplied
by courtesy of the Canadian National
Parks Commission, together with road
maps issued by the Board and letters
of information written by the secretary, who is constantly in receipt of
enquiries from the U.S. and England,
ami in    one or two instances from I
Switzerland, France, India and China, j
In addition, the Board, by special re-.
quoit, forwarded n full page descriptive article to the Pacific Coast Motorist; the mining committee placing
two articles with such publications as'
"Canadian   Opportunities,"  Toronto, I
daily newspapers of Vancouver, Min- j
ing Truth, Spokane; and the Canadian
Chamber of Commerce Journal, Lon-1
don, England.    Indeed, so closely interlocked was the work of the publicity and mining committees that it I
is difficult to determine where the
activities of one committee left off;
and the other began.    Messrs. Fink
nnd Santo, respectively chairmen of
the publicity and mining committees, >
aro each to be credited with Bplendid i
woik.   Mr. Fink's conception of a
photo map, now posted in the tourist 1
ntmp, speaks for itself.   Mr. Santo's
articles on local mining and mining
conditions   have   been   given   widespread publication in mining circles
the world over.    It is also incumbent
on me, as president of the board, to
mention the reception given by mining delegates to the mining convention at Nelson last year, to Mr. Santo's portable mineral speciment cabinet, u unique and altogether practical idea of his own,    I have no hesitation in stating, on the authority of
well   versed   mining  men,  that  the
Cranbrook Board of Trade possesses
one of thc  best  private  collections
of ore specimens in the province.
Visit of Vancouver Board of Trad*
"Before dismissing publicity aa a
iiibject, I may also be allowed to
mention a visit paid the district by
the Vancouver Board of Trade on
August 30th last. The Vancouver
people curried owuy with them excellent impressions of the district's resources, gained at first hand by tho
hospitable throwing open to inspection by the visitors of thc Sullivan
mine nnd concentrator, That hospitality was again extended by the
Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company to Mining Institutes of
British Columbia and the U.S., when
these bodies also visited thc district
on the 15th of October. It is unnecessary that I should remind members that this Board gave dinners to
the visitors on both occasions.
Increase In Tourist Traffic
"That Cranbrook district is enjoying greater popularity with tourists
each year is evidenced by increase of
tourist traffic in 1920 over the previous year. Thc figures furnished
by the city offlce in respect of the
number of cars registered in the local
todrist cump are as follows:
Number of cars   1853
Number of persons   0292
Revenue    $ 946
Number of cars   2223
Number of persons   7548
Revenue  $1140
Increase - 20 r/,.
"The records of the local information  bureau,  maintained nt the ex-
gust, are as follows: board cannot be overestimated.    And
IMS greut credit is ulso to bo given Mr.
Number of cara     528 I Alan Graham on which shoulders, as
Number of persona     1659 chairman of the entertainment com-
I mittee, fell the responsibility of ar-
| ranging three public banquets and of
Cash in bank
Number of enrs      540
Number of persons  1040
"It is to be further noted that thc
city tourist camp is recognized by all
tourists as one of the best equipped
and most advantageously situated
camps on the red and blue trails,
many tourists preferring it, by reason of its freedom from dust and its
ample shade, to camps within larger
centres in Canada and the U.S.
Evidence of its popularity is to be
found in a perusal of the camp register, in which is noted many complimentary remarks of visitors who
have made use of the accommodation
provided. I scarcely need add that
the camp is an excellent investment
ns being the best advertising vehicle
the district affords.
Finance Committee Energetic
"Activities, as briefly outlined,
necessarily entail the expenditure of
considerable sums of money as reading of the financial statement by Mr.
M. A. Beale, chairman of the finance
committee, will presently show.
Thanks to Mr. Beale, chiefly responsible for the raising of money and
keeping close watch on expenditures
the board is closing its financial year
pense of tlie board, with a paid clerk   with  a  comfortable   balance  to   its
in attendance during July and Au-   credit.    Mr.   Beale's  value   to   the

In any discussion as to tlm informatory doubles, there i» usually an agreement tlint a double of an original bul of
one or two in a suit is un Informatory
double ami requires a hid from partner.
A double of an. original bid of three in?
suit, however, means an Informatory
double to some players and a business
double io others. According to thc
generally accented rule, a doable of an
original suit hid of om*, two or three is
an Informatory double but there are
many very good players who doubt i ha
Value of this rule when applied lo Uu*
value of a bid of three. They claim lhat
It i» bo seldom of any vilita that ii
•hould bt eliminated aa nu informatory
double and maintain that a double of
three should always be regarded as ;i
business double. The writer has frequently stated his opinion thai such a
{oiibU is on the bonier linc but Inclines
o believe that the bettor result Is oh-
lined by regarding it ni a business
ionble. Hie following hand, however,

No score, rubber game. 'I. dealt anil bid
three spades. What should A bid? If
the double of the three spade bid is regarded as informatory, he should double
for h* can support any four bid by his
partner. It i» a perfect esainple of the
type of hand that justifies an inform-
a'tory double of a three bid. On the
other hand, if the double of a three bid
Is regarded as a business double, what
should A hid.' His best chance is to bid
lour hearts but whatever he dues is
cues* work, and may cause a big !•>■»-.
hie hand is certainly a gootl argument
f 'i' those who advocate the double of a
('.tree bid as un informatory double but
it is iust as easy to find other hands to
prove the contrary. The hand is given
as au illuttration of a well known con-

viewpoints, ll is a close question but
whatever you decide to do under auch
circumstances stick to it and inform
your partners of what you are doing.
In that way only can you get the beat

Z were given. Now that the carda of
A and B are alio given, it ia evident
that when Z wine the second spade
trick, he can go game by tilaylng tha
ace of hearts and the ace of clubs. The
drop of theae two tricks enable him to
make two heart trlcka, four club tricks,
t wo diamond tricks and one spade trick,
nine in ull. It is a tricky hand ao don't
be disappointed if you failed to figure
out the correct solution.

Hearts are trumps and Z is In the lead.
How can Y-Z win six of the nine tricka
against any defense? 7. must lead the
jack of clubs and overtake in Y's hand.
If B takes the trick as he should and
leads a spade, / should win the trick
and lead tlie nine of clubs, again overtaking in Y's hand. If B wins the trick
and leads another spade, Z should win
the trick und leud the seven of clubs,
winning the trick in Y's hand with thc
eight. V should th -n lead fl diamond,

should now lead his last diamond. It
can either trump or discard. If the
former, Z'squcen of hearts will be gootl,
If the latter, Z will trump wiih the
queen of hearts. In either event, Y-Z
must score one club trick, two spade
tricks and three trump tricks. Note
th.it if Z leads either a heart or a spade
at the first trick, Y-Z can only make
five tricks aa B can act up a spadt
trick and givt A a discard, i'lay thia out
for practice
keeping the outlay in connection
therewith within reasonable bounds,
a rather difficult feat, all things considered. As for Messrs. Seott, Little,
Grubbe and Flett, in their respective
capacities us chairmen of transportation, camps and roads, and agriculture, nnd Mr. Spreull, civic and legal,
and members of all committees whenever called upon to net, they hnve
ever boen ready to give freely of
their time in tho public interest, und
so must thanks be tendered to the
public nt large in responding generously to the board's plea for funds,
a prompt response that would indicate the people of Cranbrook us being in hearty accord with the movement toward betterment of general
conditions and enlargement of the
scope of community effort,
"Of service clubs within thc eity,
with whom the bourd hus co-operated
in such enterprises as an addition to
the Y.M.C.A. in the form of a gymnasium and swimming pool, there is
just this to say — they are possessed of tireless energy. The gym. and
swimming pool scheme has not ripened yet, but there is reason to hope
thnt it soon will. Rest assured the
matter is far from being dropped. I,
for one, um confidently looking forward to announcement by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company that
plans are being matured for the erection of an addition to the "Y."
Tribute to Colleagues
"In relinquishing office ns president of the Cranbrook Board of
Trade tonight, I feel each year
that passes is rapidly bringing Crunbrook into the forefront of things.
Industrially nnd socially. This is a
progressive town, though but un infant city, in a manner of speaking.
It boasts educational facilities second
to none in point of population. Its
citizens nre public-spirited and law
abiding Its social institutions rank
with the best. And behind Us industrial life is u mineral wealth as
yet almost untouched. Much as
Cranbrook regrets the passing of its
lumber industry with the cutting
down of surrounding forest, it has
reason to rejoice—it does rejoice-
the knowledge of its being the geo-
gruphical centre of one of the great
unex plotted mineral districts of the
world. Lumbering in the district of
Cranbrook is dying, it must be acknowledged; agriculture may never
attain to more thnn second place as
n basic industry, but in the ranges of
the Selkirks and Rockies lies unlimited riches awaiting the attention of
cupital thut has already turned its
gaze in this direction.
"Gentlemen, I wish to go on record
tonight ns predicting that the next
ten yeurs will witness Cranbrook's
emergence from comparative obscurity into tho front rank of industrial
and commercial endeavor. Enst
Kootenay is about to enter in on its

the Crnnbrook Bourd of Trade being
given the same unselfish support that
has been enjoyed by its predecessors
of the pust. And let me also assure
you that I, for one, may ulwoys be
depended upon to work with the Crnnbrook Board of Trade in the interests
of the district it represents."

Riel Again Raiaei Rebellion
For a while he was mode-rate in advice, constitutional in agitation and
reasonable in view. Then the wild,
free air of the prairies seemed to
get into his easily influenced mind—
memories of past power recurred to
him, daily evidence of present influence over a scattered but numerous
population of halfbreds and Indians
came home to his senses, republican
sentiments tarried in his mind and
were aided by spiritual fanacticism
and the worce of his own eloquence,
he cast fear and consequences to the
winds, gathered the halfbreeds round
him at Batoche, called on the Indians to join him, and rebellion was
once more a fact on Canadian soil.
Scattered through these great regions were some thirty-five thousand
Indians. The men of these tribes
were mostly skilled hunters and would
have made brave warriors. They
were friends of the halfbreeds and
were associated with them by ties of
kindred life and occupation, and oft'
en of blood. If they joined the ia
surrection, the whites of much of the
vast country between Winnipeg and
the Rockies, and north to Hudson's
Bay and the arctic seas, were at their
mercy. Riel did his best but failed
for the moment, excepting in the
eases of Big Bear and Poundmoker,
two chiefs with considerable follow-
Great anxiety naturally prevailed
at Ottawa. It was felt that if the
Indians did not at once join Riel they
would certainly do so in the event of
any success over Canadian troops,
and that the horrors of fire nnd death
were hanging over the heads of the
entire Northwest settlers, and the
terrors oT the historic scalping-knife
would follow. Scarcity of food had
made the tribes restless, and despite
the excellent administration which,
as a whole, characterized the record
of Canadian relations with the Indians, the dangi-r was a serious one.
Rebels   Firat Succeta
Preparations wore quietly mnde,
but, in the month of March, and like
a flash of lightning, came the news
that Riel hnd taken advantage of a
rumored declaration of war by Russia aguinst Great Britain, had assumed absolute authority at Batoche,
given the command of his troops tn
Gabriel Dumont—a skillful buffalo
hunter and hnlfbreod—and that the
latter had defeated nenr Duck Lake
a force of Mounted Police, with a loss
of twelve men killed and seven
wounded. In a moment Canada and
the other provinces were in a blaze.
The government call for troops was
responded to with a rush, and in
three days Canadian militia-men
were on the march from Quebec,
Montreal, Kingston nnd Toronto,
while regiments had volunteers for
service from Halifax to Winnipeg.
General Middleton, in command of
the Militia as a whole, was placed in
charge of the expedition, and proved a careful, skillful and fortunate
leader. Three points of considerable
distance from one another were
menaced by the rapidly spreading rebellion—Prince Albert, by the half-
breeds at Batoche; Battleford, by the
Indians under Poundmaker; and Fort
Pitt, by Big Bear's Indian reserve.
Nenr the latter point, at Frog Lake,
a massacre of white people took
place, and shortly afterward the Fort
was itself captured.
General Middletor arranged his
forces into throe columns nfter their
junction with those of Winnipeg.
They had already endured great privations and sufferings from cold in
marching the long distance which had
to he traversed north of Lake Superior, owing to the incomplete condition of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the refusal of the United
States government to permit British
armed troops to cross its territory by
rail. The first column, under Lieutenant-General Bland-Strange and
numbering five or Bix hundred, waa
sent against Big Bear and his followers, The second numbering about
the same, and under the command
of Lieutenant-Colonel W. I). Otter,
was despatched to the relief of Battleford. The main column, under his
own command, consisted of nearly a
thousand men, and was to relieve
Prince Albert and subjugate Batoche.
Coming  to Grips
Upon the whole this carefully matured plan was carried out. Middle-
ton first mtt the rebels at Fish Creek
on April 24th, where they fought so
stubbornly and well that he was for
a moment checked and induced to
await reinforcements before advancing further in pursuit of the retiring
enemy. Meanwhile, Colonel Otter
relieved Battleford, marched out to
meet Poundmaker and plunged into
a gully opening upon Cut Knife Hill.
Here his troops were surrounded by
a wall of fire, and though they fought
steadily and well, had eventually to
be withdrawn. ' A week later occurred the three days' struggle at
Batoche, between Mlddlcton's forces
and the half-breeds entrenched behind rifle pits in a region furrowed
with ravines and guarded by trenches. At last, on the 12th of May, the
slow process of distant shot and shell
was abandoned, and, under orders
from the General, and by the more
immediate command of colonels
Van Stranbenzie, Williams and Grns-
sett, a charge waa made which cleared thc rifle pita in a hurry and scattered the rebels like chaff,

A representative meeting waa held

ovent will be a memory to be treas*
ured for many years.

motion and carried unanimously.
Mr. Montgomery urged that tht
three camps and the town join in
making a success of the undertaking,
and thus supplying necessary funds
for the Amateur Athletic Association.
The chairman mentioned the band,
the children's playground, tha ath
letic grounds and the recreation hall
at Lindsay Park as valuable assets
in putting on an event of thla kind,
and asked ail organizations to get
behind the scheme and work for ita
complete success.
A further meeting will be called at
an early date, and the necessary committees appointed.

THE New Oldsmobile Sis offers
the car-buying public of Canada
a car possessing all the qualities of
luxury—at a moderate price.
To the beauty of line and the dependability of performance which
characterized previous Oldsmobile
Sixes, has now been added a host of
extra refinements and improvements—extra niceties of design and
appointment which mean so much
to the discriminating motorist.
Four-wheel Brakes—larger Balloon
Tires —Crankcase Ventilation —
Dual Air-Cleaning and Oil Filter,
making it necessary to change oil
only 3 or 4 times a year—Twin-
Beam Headlights — Thermostatic
Charging Control—Harmonic Balancer—Honed Cylinders—Double
Valve Springs—Two-Way Cooling
—Three-Way Pressure Lubrication—
These are among the many im*
provements which Oldsmobile Six
now presents.
Even when you see Oldsmobile Six
and check into the many outstanding refinements, you will almost
hesitate to believe the evidence of
your own eyes—so radical an innovation in six-cylinder values is the
new Oldsmobile Six. •»•••"

will be drawn for at the close of the

prizes will be has not yet been decided but they will be well worth
while and sufficiently valuable so that
any member will be proud to possess
them. It is expected that this scheme
will result in a larger membership
than ever being.gained for the club
during the coming season.

A case which aroused considerable
local interest was heard by Magistrate
Leask on Friday of last week when
W. F. Cameron appeared against Ray
Hill, charging him with assault with
intent to do grievious bodily harm.
Acting for the plaintiff was Mr. Harry Herchmer, while G. J. Spreull was
for the defendant. The case arose
out of an incident which took place
in a local restuarant on Monday
evening of last week, when it is alleged by the plaintiff that Ray Hill
had come to the booth in which he
was sitting and remonstrated with
htm for the language he was
using, claiming that on rising to ask
the name of the party who was asking him to "moderate his language"
he was struck by the defendant without any provocation. The evidence
of the defendant was that the blow
was struck by him after he had been
ordered to leave the booth and after
he had been struck at by the plaintiff.
After hearing the case, the judge,
on the strength of the evidence, reduced the charge to one of common
assault, and in passing judgment
stated that while he would have to
find against the defendant he felt
that there were extenuating circumstances which might help to excuse
him. A fine of $1.00 without costs
was imposed.
