Them is a fact which stands out
prominently iu regard to practically
i'vrrv successful Industrial organization of today—whether it be a paying
mine, nu operating oilfield, a large
manufactory, or n profit paying
railroad.
The fact is that, -in nearly every
iiistnnce, almost the entire stock iii
these dividend-paying concerns is
held by a few people. There are no
small stockholders, or, at least,
very few The dividends puss into
lho pockets ol a dozen or a score ol
people, who own   all the stoclt.
Why is this? The stock was offered to the public at the commencement of the company's operations.
Moreover, being low In price and the
prospects lor sun-ess good, it was
freely taken up by the public at
large. The small investor put tn
his few hundred, those better off put
in a thousand or two. Vet today
all the stock is in the hands ot some
dozen or twenty men. Again, why
is lliis?
The answer is simple. The meal
majority ol those who bought stock
in the company sold out as soon as
there wns a slight advance in the
shares. They were able to sell, tor
there were   always those who    were I
willing to buy. The burets
fi'W, it is true, but 'hey had
lid-ence in the company, 'hey looked
ahead a year or two, and mv ihat
these shares would soon be pay-to**;
dividends. So they bought wbon the
chance oltered, ten shares here, twenty-five there, fiftv elsewhere, until
today the few who knew how i«j
wait have all thu BtooH and draw .ill
the dividends.
This       is     the history  of
every company.    The average      '"an
who buys stock In a new oonoeri
not tho patience or the confident'
wait.       He luus today    and expects
lo sell next    week   at'a profit »i
hundred per cent.
It is   with   a lull realization    and
knowledge    of fact*,    that I am n<
addressing     the shareholders
Canadian Northwest. Oil Co.,
will be no fault oi   mine it
them, for the sake of a little
ute gain, shall sacrifice a tnuoh larger
profil   in   the   very near   tuiure   for
want oi ,i uord   t.i advice and warning.    Early in ilune Inst, in  a pubic
letter to Uie sbntehoflders through tiie
provincial     pies*.,     I most earnestly
uigi-d them to hold on to their Stock*
and not   to part with it except     lu
circumstances ul the direct necessity.
Wince   that date, developments in the
company's     properly   have not only
justified my advice at that time, but
have Increased tenfold the advisabil-
■ ity of every shareholder retaining his
'slock.   This     is not a   gamble, it Is
an investment.
Nor   in giving this warning, do    I
ask you lo accept my own knowledge
alone, or to    believe my unsupported
statement.      I do   more.     I present
lo you   the   faet, ihe irrefutable nr-
[rument,     that the man timers      of
Canadian Northwest Oil   stock tod.iv
are   Close who have seen and    tnow
IllO must   of our property.    Surely 1
call oiler you no stronger evid.ne
favor of holding   vour stock at.
present   time   and disregarding
idle rumors   of the street    and
market rumors set flflnnl by
who are desirous of depreclat|p-
vnlue of our slock in order   that the
mav   persuade      some   faint-hearted
shareholder tn sacrifice   his holdings
at a twentieth part of their value.
I have endeavored in this letter t
Impress upon all shareholders of the
Canadian Northwest Oil Co. the
Importance of holding on to their
stock. This has been, as yon know,
my consistent advice from the first.
I reiterate it now. Hold on to your
•-hares. If in the face of this last
one of repeated warnings, you ncrsist
iu sellinr now, do not Manic me If, at
an early date, when the financial
world has received the full proofs of
Ihe sound position of the Canadian
Northwest Oil Co., vou fmd that vou
ha*'e narted, for a trifling i-ecwilary
consideration, with stock which is
riuoted at a higher figure than vou
have ever anticipated.

"Canada lu 1800 was thoroughly a

"Today w© know that Ihe way ill
which .'anuria has dealt with the

"Tillay it is nol too much to

that today   the difficulty will       he

already es-tahlished.
'•I have said that there are these
three great facts which stand out
preeminently: that from 18110 to 1008
the Increase of our population has
quadrupled the increase which took

that during our twelve years the increase has heen sixfold of what occurred over their period of eighteen

In pursuance of their campaign 1
misrepresentation the Conservath
canvassers in various parts of th
; Kootenay electoral dlstrlot have clr
culalcd the report that Sir Wilfrt
Laurier has entered into an arrange
mint with the (irand Trunk Paeiii-

close of the elections, the rcstric

Into the country would be removed

had already sent an n.„cut to .Inpni

This infamous fabrication came i.

centrnl campaign committee, and Im-
mediately telegrams were sent li
Sii Wilfrid Laurier and 1., Hon. Oeo.
P. (Iraham, ininisiet of railways,

In reply Sir Wilfrid telegraphed as
follows, under date of Ottawa. Oc

"Report has no foundation whatever. The company has made no
such application, either directly or
Indirectly, I can make answer no
more comprehensive than in (hose

And Mr. Graham telegraphed    under

FOSTER   AS    A GUARDIAN    OF

The attention of electors is drawn
to these letters written by Oeo. E.
Foster, manager of the Union Trust
Company, to Dr. Oronhyatekha. as
head of- the Foresters:
"My Dear Doctor: As von know,
the Foresters have $500,000 of their
money in the Northwest land deal
On the security of tills we have borrowed all the money- we can from
the banks. We have also put into
this deal as much ot the I. O. F.
current account as can be arranged.
We require still more money. Could
we not have part of the reserve fund
for this purpose?
Yours sincerely.
"(Signed) Oeo. E. Foster."
"Dear Doctor: I have not received
reply to my former letter. Let me
assure vou that the machinery nf
the Union Trust Company needs oil.
Please turn on the tap. We need thi
surplus of the I.   O. F.
Yours sincerely,

Ontario, as tu the other provinces, below which the Liberal representation cannot fall. The return of Sir Wilfrid to power is certain. The
duly uf the patriotic Canadian who is not greatly wcMtd to party is to
strengthen his majority instead of voting for the candidates ol a party
that at the best hopes to win by a majority so small as to make
an opportunity foi political brigandage unprecedented in the history of
ihe country.

INCREASE IN TRADE
The nexl trxl lo the tat id is tlic
growth ol foreign Hade, and here we
have a record "f   wonderful progress,
In 1890 nut total foreitm trade was
$239,025,360.
In IflOS our total foreign trade was
(660,738,200.
During the twelve years under the
Liberal tariff, the aggntgntc foreign]
trade amounted to $5,151000.000, as I
aeatnst 52.920,000,000 during the last |
twelve years of Conservative rule.
These air onlj sample figures.
RESILTS OF THE PREFERENCE
Th.' prestige of Canada was greatly
Increased,
Tlte hcariy good-will of British capitalists;   and th.  British people cener-
lly, was secured,
It meant substantially reduced taxation to   the Canadian consumers.
It largelv Increased imports from
Great  Britain.

BRITAIN.

No doubt, also, the good feeling
produced helped us to sell more
goods to Great Britain.
LIKED BRITISH COLUMBIA.
After John Ashworth, the great
Engl.sh mining expert, not bull to
Winnipeg he had this to say about
mining in British Columbia
"My own opinion i-> thai I* C.
•■•.ill become.,in the near future the
great minim: center for British eapi-
t,il \t all events it should be.
what Impressed me and th e who
were with me on the excursion
through the various mining centers
was tbe magnificent opening for
British capital which bona fide notation offered and this will be tho
view generally expressed.
"I spent a month in B. C. visiting
Victoria, Nanaimo, Rossland, Greenwood and Trail, and look for investments next year, which I shall re-
commend, of   many million pounds."

Sovereign Lord the Kiut humbly pie-
sent as fallows:
tte have visited the provincial lockup, the St. Kugtw hospital, conduct-
uil b) the Sisters ol Charity, and
llie olty public school, and lieg to
make the lollowing reoommendaxtoiiti:
The provincial lockup is a small
frame building of inadequate, capacity
for the present needs ot the district
and is by reason of its construction
a veritable death trap. In this connection wc understand that steps
have already been talien towards having n district fail establish.tl heic.
wo wdiiW tcol oliliged tlwrclc/rt1 il
vour lajrdship would urge on the
proper authorities the mieessily of
having this undertaken with as
little delay us inissible. and we
would strongly ivccpnitueiKi that a lire
proof building ol proper dimensions
he rafted forthwith.
Thc hospital Is being well con-
ductod, having proper sanitary requirements, and every appearance of
cleanliness* we lind au unusual iiiini-
lu-r of typhoid patients therein, from
outside jioiiils, and we would earn
i illy recommend that the attention
i I tlio provincial board of health be
called to the necessity of having a
local officer, preferably a physician,
appointed with ample power to coj:c
with ihis or any other epidemic in
Its ineipieiiey, employing such means
as he may deem expedient even to
Hie extent' of closing habitations, il
necessary, as il is only along these
lines that the present condition * ol
affairs  can be remedied.
The public school we lind is alio
cclbcr loo small for the number ol
children iu attendance; Inr example:
Ihe number on the roll is ''8a, the
average attendance is awl, while there
is accommodation lor only 2-10; additions have been made, and the
old government offices are being used,
and it is ol the utmost importance
that a new building with modern nP-
l„.ii,tiu.'iits and with a.oapaclty colli-
inensiirale with the growing needs of
this district, be erected. We would
therefore respectively request your
l.onlship to call the attention ol
Hie proper authorities lo litis much
pressing need.
I'ennii us to congratulate, yout
itdship on the absence ol crime in
is district, as evidenced by no
diclmenl being presented to us, and
mggest that sittings ol ttrli
court he hold hero four times a
at Rossland and Nelson, as
,i great deal of litigation originates
here, that heretofore had to be tried
at Fernie or Nelson, and we understand there is already a great deal
ol pending litigation that would
eome belore   this court.
In conclusion, wc thank your Lordship for the Mud words you were
goud enough lo say regarding our
district and humbly submit this, out
Indictment.

SALE OF CRESTON FRUIT LANDS
IT WAS A C1IIEAT SUCCESS AND
HKOL'OHT OOOU 1'ltlCKS.
<'.'i'«ilon Review.)
The long looked for auction sale ol
British Columbia government fruit
laiiils was begun ou Wednesday last.
These lands, situated iu tlic Creston valley, were reclaimed by the
government from The Alberta and
llritish Columbia Kiploratlon Co
because certain conditions had not
lieen fiilllllwt, and the experiment has
been made ol disposing ol these lauds
by public auction. The sale was
w'ell a-dvert'sed, and the result has
been a success. Kor the past tw
weeks the town of Creston has been a
busy liive. Parlies ol prospective
purchasers have arrived from all
points of the continent and looked
over a good ileal of tbe land. The
woods have been thick with them.
Wbi-ievcr one journeyed he would
meet, in a sivludcil spot, some or-
eharilists Irom afar, studying with
catalogue and map in baud the topography of the country. Tbe livery
stables have done a whirlwind business, every nag in tiie district was
pressed into service lo supply the
demand.
The sale was uuiipie lor the reason
that it was Ihe lirst, time the II. C.
government had put. up fruit lauds
lor public auction, and it must be
written that tbe enperiment was
every way a success. The interest
awakened has been great. Every day
since Saturdav last east and west
hound trains have brought in a load
«il passengers, and ibe streets ol
Creston have presented a lively scene.
There has bt*en so much written
and said ol the value ol fruit lands,
that the sale has had ihe effect ol
settling lor all time the value of
land ol various kinds in "(llorion:
Kootenay." Men have argued thnt
'lull an acre is too much for some
of the befit, but it must be borne in
miml that Creston men are securing
from their lands as hli-h a revenue
as 12,000   per acre, and that wheat

A BOW OF CREPK.
Passing down ihe street recently
at un early bout uni attention was
called io a bow ol crepe on thu
front door of one of otij most beautiful homes. We stood and gazrti upon
it and read our morning lesson irom
the black threads that formed the
largo bow. Plainly did thev tell us
that a mother had been taken away;
that she would greet sun and
daughter no more. The homo is left
in all its beauty, the law,
the rose awl the sweet briar are
still there, but she has been borne
forth to sleep by the side of n loved
one gone before, and the home is not
what it was. Many and sad were
the tales that each thread In the
repc told us, atiid yet the busy
throne passed rapidly bv, little heed-
im: the crepe on   the door.
INFLUENCE.
(Written for this department by one
of our girls.)
Girls do not fully realize the
amount and the value of the influence
they have over others. It does notecase when a girl leaves her home, to
enter what is familiarly known as
society. It is but begun. It is in
her associations outside of the home
circle, that she comes in contact
with those who are very siisceplible
to Influence, mote often to evil than
to Rood. How often the watchful
eye of a tender mother and the wise
counsel of a loving sister are forgotten for the time when the young man
is out among those who nre supposed
to he, but ate not always friends. It
is here thnt a girl's influence for gn-id
Is of more value than in any
other place.
We often think that if girls but
knew how closely their actions were
watched and how often discussed, by
tbe young men with whom they come
iu contact, they would surely raise
the standard of their thoughts and
speech to a higher plant' of purity.
One little word, spoken thoughtlessly, or ono caroltwt* action may cause
some young man to lose faith in the
purity and -loudness of girlhood.
The girl whom wc all love and
honor is very careful iu her choice
of friends. She selects those whose
presence strengthens her, social lv ns
well as morally. She is kind to all,
but her friends are the earnest, noble-
hc-aited young men and women. She
ilwnys gives a kind word to the
.Trine one and strives to help those
>nes fallen, hack to the better path.
Une word from the lips of a cirl
may be of great importance. It may
influence for good or evil. Let it
be for good, girls. Let us drink in
the sweets of girlhood. Let us
cherish its purity. Let ns have our
words and notions accompanied bv
ihe thought "Thou fioil seest me."
And let Us have for our daily prayer: "Let the words of mv mouth
nnd the meditations of mv heart l>e
acceptable in thy siubt, 0 Lord, my
strength and my redeemer."
Then, when we have crossed beyond
the happy years of girlhood, we can
look back with pleasure on the moments used in doing work for the
Master in a quiet, unassuming way.
If tattlers would imitate the bre,
nnd extract the sweets and goodness
of men's actions and circulate them,
(hey would become blessings instead
of scourges to society.
INDUSTRY AND THRIFT.
This couMry is not in need of anv
more polished   heads and idle hands.
Its   most   crying    need today is for
skilled workers, for men and   women
who care more to be useful than thev
do to be ornamental;   irtw   can plow
n furrow, or shoe a horse, better than
they can talk philosophy or plead at
the bar; who   can make a loaf      of
bread and broil » steak hetter   than
they    can   chatter    French and embroider pillow shams     There is   no
use talking, we cannot rise above the
stomach.  We must live, and we must
eat to live, and somebody must    do
the work that living demands. Those
neople   who    will not lend a holpltut
band, but wlllinglv prev on       their
bard    working   relations, are a   disgrace to   modern civilization.     The
truth   is we are too ambitious     too
desirious for easv places, we'll      do
the   eating if somebody   else will Ho
the cooking; we'll pay   ihe hills, ton,
If somebody  else     will earn       the
money, we can't do everything; neonle
succeed best in pursuits congenial to
them, wo have no taste for drudgery.
therefore we should not do it.    This
is about   the smart logic thnt      Is
being practised to the extinction   of
manv a family.    Parents take'    tin
hard    and   give the easv    to    their
children.       The   mother    tends tin
kitchen and dairy, and thejl.iuehters
Ihe parlor   and school.    This, it is
thought, will give them grace      and
culture   and fit them tn adorn      the
hifrli position   thev arc expected    to
fill, but rarelv do.    Let us think on
these things, and indelible stamp    it
upon our hearts, that no amount   of,
culture     and ease  can make amends
for the lock of industry and thrift.
— ■■
The   habit ol treating those    who
are nearest   and dearest to us   with
discourtesy and disregard, is one thai
clouds    the    sunshine of   too many
homes.     When we learn to he nolHc
not only as society people,    but   as

some time remains for me yet
to oppose those sinister combinations, and especially have
l a tooth for the unholy alliance between the Castors and
the Conservatives. Our

Canada has grown since, his time
Then she was a minor colony of i lie

his government, and under tht

resources of tbe west have been developed, the Industries of the

been carefully nurtured aud the labor
ing man has had his, interests protected as never before in the
history of Canada. Not many
years ago the west was considered
a barren plain, aud empire of rock:
and hills, unfit for population aud
unattractive for the investment of
capital. Today it is a magnificent-
empire that is attracting peopl
Irom the whole clvili'/.ed world and li.
a magnificent monument to the progressive policy of tin* Liberal government and the advane**d ideas of
Sir WJlfriri Laurier. Thousands i of
men from the east, from Knglajid

I'nited States,-have come to this
greal western empire of Canada and
established tlK-msehes as citizens
and are partaking to » materia!
tent of the marvelous prosperity that

with the intelligence that the young
men ol the west possess, can refrain
from voting for a party that has
done so much for them. Western
Canada and Canada as a whole.
The young men in Kast Kootenay, no matter where they came

A vote for Smith Curtis is a vote
for a man whose record shows tha
be didn't wait until be was a candidate for the Dominion parliament
until be interested himself in the be
half of the laboring men of this
pi--■ nice and a white British Columbia. Smith Curtis, had he been
mayor of Ross-land at the time of th*
lockout, would never have permitted
a magistrate of that city to have
brought in Pinkerton detectives ti
control the miners who had displayed
no signs of revolt or trouble. It
seems that with some men it
necessary for them to become candidates for office before their hearts
are lurnod to the interests of the
laboring man. Mr. Curtis has always been an advocate for those measures that promise advancement aud
prosperity for the wage earner.
He has been that kind of a man
prior to his nomination in this caui-
i-aigu and he is that- now. No man
in Western Canada has been more
consistent in his public utterances
and his public acts, so far as the
interest of labor is concerned, than
lias been Mr. Curtis. He has not
found it necessary to carry around
with him a friend of the laboring
nmn with the hope of appealing to
their sympathies. He is able ti
stand absolutely upon his personal record, anil it is for that reason that
he will receive such a large majority
of the laliov vote tn his constit
uency.
The Laurier government has taken
hold of the Hindu question with
masterly hand. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
has arranged with Lord Sttmthoona
for the deportation of alt Hindus in
British Columbia to British Honduras. This will give a home for the
II mil ii in ii climate similar to that
from which he came and at the same
time relieve this province ol
troublesome labor problem. The
Laurier government has not sent out
advance agents blazoning forth lo
the people of Canaoa fh-e work that
lliey are doing for British Columbia,' hut after deciding upon practical
methods are jjoing ahead and effecting
the remedy that is so much disirtd
Visitors to Cranbrook never fail
to say a good word for the town
and the district. There have been
some remarkable instances ot this
fact during the past month, which
have heen very gratifying to those
who have been endeavoring to promote the best interests of this community, Kast Kootenay can deliver
is not another district in all of Can-
been dcliverina; the goods for the
past years and will continue to
do so as long as capital, energy
and brains are invested here, There
is not another blstrict in all of Canada that has such magnificent resources as Kast Kootenay, and nowhere
is there a country that gives belter
promise for tiie man who is lool
ing for an onportunity to advance
bis interests   than   right here.
The Laurier government sent Mr
Lemieuv to Japan to adjust the differences existing between that government and Canada as to Japanese Immigration. There has been much
said by the opposition as to th
result of the minister's trip to Japan
but. to use an old expression, ''The
proof of the pudding is in the eating." During the last two months
the number of Japanese immigrants
have been confined to an average of
about sixty per month which Is evidence of the fact that tht; Japanese
government Is sincere in its declaration that it is willing to comply
with the provisions of the treaty
with Canada. The Laurier government made su absolute statement
lhal it would see that the terms of
Mils treaty were compiled with by
Japan and it has kept its word. The
fact thai there has not been an
n-rease in Japanese immigration
nee Mr. Lemieux' visit to that
country is a bard blow to thos
Conservative speakers and newspapers
who would try to impress the people
of the country with the faet thai

who are endeavoring to malign the

The contest between Mr. Her run and
Mr. McDonald, of Pineher Creek district, is going to be a close one,
Botb candidates are most estimable

Harold Nelson, as Marius, had a
purl in which he was at his best
Go,.I actor though he is, Nelson is
an elocutionist first, and Marius is a

Clarice, as John the Itapbist, and
later as .liidasl was splendid in two
very different and verv dlHlcult
purls. Miss Mahcllc Moore, as Salome, distinctly made a hit, while
Miss Gertrude Stone, as Eli»aheih,

played a heanlilul part with groat

AN  INTERESTING LECTURE
The Presbyterian school room was
crowded on Tuesday evening to heat
.1. F. Smith tell ol his trip to the
uld land and to see the pictures.
Mr. Smith confined himself to Scotland almost entirely, and had ample
interest ins material. Among the
must famous places visited and described w-ere the Dreaitnaught, Olas-
l^ow, Edinburgh, Dunfernline A bin
where Robert Bruce is buried, St.
Giles church, Jcanie Dean's crave,
famous throueh Scott's "The H«*"
<f Midlothian," the battlefield of
Banuockbtirn, Holy Road palace,
Scott's monument, Nelson's monument at the head of Calton Hill,
ihe National Gallery, ihe monument
to Henry Drummond, the Forth
bridge, the largest in the world,
liiti feet above the water and nearlv
two miles long, views of the Tros-
sucks, Ben Venue, Wallace's monument, St. Andrew's, Melrose Abbey, considered one of the finest ruins
in Scotland, Loch Lomond and others. Prominent among the views
were splendid portraits of Sir Walt, r
Scott, his father, mother and wife.
A hearty vote of thanks was tendered Mr. Smith, and on the appearance of King Edward on the screen
in full coronation robes the national
anthem was sung.
It was suggested that Mr. Smith
prepare two other lectures on his
visit to England and France- We
will hope this may be done at some
future date.

Fort Steele,   B.C , tX-t. 18
Editor Herald:
During the past year 1 have had
several inquiries by letter and otherwise as to the possibilities of makinc
a living from poultry In British Co-
among fowls raised on heavy soils.
East Kootenay, but some also to
Vancouver Island and the coast.
To answer such inquiries intelligently requires as much, and in fact
more, knowledge of the man going
into the work than of the country in
which he proposes to try it. To be
brief 1 do not know of any district
in this province at all suitable for
any phase of agriculture where poultry properly handled would not realize a handsome martrin of urotit
Eggs are ut all times a good
price and fowls both young uiM
old, if well prepared, are always at
a premium if placed before the besi
class of buyers. In the dry belt
of British Columbia the climatic conditions are of the best for rearing
fowls and producing eggs us it
would lie hard to lind where there
was a greater amount of sunny
weather, with little wind in the
cold season, and except in river bottoms, the soil is nf such a nature as
to readily carry oil impurities and to
dry quickly after rains, thus pre
venting many diseases too common
atnoijg   owls raised on heavy soils.
As to whether   any certain   person
can succeed making a specialty      of
poultry depends very much    on   the
nature ol such 11 person.      As a rule
the general   rancher   carrying    from
-.<<v.--,iv flvo t.. ii    hundred him
realize the most per bend from them
if he will   devote as much care      U
them, proportionately to their value,
as lo auy   other stock, as   iu mlxet
farming a certain amount nf poultry
feed is   obtained   from what     would
otherwise be waste     product.       To
most of those people who sec visions
of large profits in harilling a stock
from live hundred 10 a thousand
more laying   trnds and raising      the
young to   replace these   each year, 1
would say: "Don't try it.     It
trade by itself and one deuliir      not
with any set of   mechanical or inanimate objects or run by set rules   of
mathematical precision, but with
various individual characteristics   almost as you have birds in your care
In a business   like   this yon cut out
altogether the   item     ol ' waste by
products uf the general form,   going
su often to replace    •eghct or sbon
rations and which have much   to   do
with the   health and profit of      the
flock.    You also   cut   out   the possibility ot    free     range of   all the
stock   unless you scatter them so tar
as to   make the care of them a very
costly affair, and the expense   of
large amount    of fencing must      be
reckoned on.      Artificial   incubation
must be resorted to in order   to -vt
enough young stock each year     and
early enough in the year,   and      nn
artificial brooding system must      be
ready to take up the work of caring
for the young after hatched. In    the
small general farm ttock the birds to
a large extent supply themselves with
insect life, gravel, lime   and      trrec-n
feed; in the large special outfit these
have to be given in the form of bone.
beef scrap,     oyster shell and garden
truck or clover."    All these items and
many more    make for increased cost
per head in the large flock, and    the
ordinary      person with    no   special
adaptability for the work is not %o-
ing to be able to overcome    all this
and leave a living profit at   the end
of the year.    I believo the right man
can show   more profit per head from
a large (lock to which he devotes  nil
his energies   and    study than       the
general average of small farm flocks,
but I   also believe the right man   is
n very scarce article.    He must be u
very  observant  person,  fund ol     the
stuck naturally   and with a   bent for
looking   into all   apparently trifling
details connected with the work, and
lie   willing     to   be nt it both early
and late, all   day    long ami     every
day in the year, for   there is nothing
that lies one closer   to work limn ■■
Inrgc hunch uf   poultry.     An abrupt
moving or nasty tempered person
out of place with poultry as also   is
llie one who is niniie tu think     that
lots of feed will overcome the    evils
of    slab*     drinking   water,    dirtv
houses, foul nests, lack of dust hath,
damp Hoots,     the presence of      sick
birds iu the flock and a dozen   other
evils, the combination of which    has
been the    ruin of manv a plant inaa-

Why Does
THE HERALD'S
Business Grow ?
T
| ^ HOSE not familiar with
the facts might well ask
the question, as it has
been a query to many people how
a weekly paper in a comparatively
small town in the mountains
could do as much business as the
HERALD does.
But the answer is easy.
The HERALD has always endeavored to give the people the
worth of their money, and a little
more if possible. It has published
at great expense an eight page
paper when other publishers in
the Province were content to publish only four pages and ask the
same price that is charged for the
HERALD.
The HERALD has never hesitated at expense to give the people
the news.
For these reasons the HERALD
leads in circulation.
The HERALD has one of the
best equipped job offices in all of
Western Canada, and employs
only artists in the typographical
line. That is why it does such a
large amount of JOB WORK,
and receives orders from Alberta
to Nelson.
As to ADVERTISING, the
HERALD4'delivers the goods."
This is evidenced by the crowded
condition of the HERALD'S
columns, where Ads. are printed
from Vancouver to Halifax.
It is easy to see why the
HERALD'S business continues
to grow.
When you want the best of
work, or to advertise in a medium
that covers the field, or read a
paper that gives the news all the
time, see us.  We can please you.

Tiie Kast Mini of London has once
more furnished a romance-—this time
oue of song. From street singing for
pennies to the brilliant palaces of
pleasure and the salary of a minister
f the crown in a few weeks is an
unusual achievement, and the jun t>
is all the more astounding, as it is
m--.de by an alien boy only 13 years
of age and scarcely able to speak the
English language- The story of little
Mirzka Gynt and of his rescue from
the Kast End gutters is certainly
very remarkable. A wcIl4nown
actress was passing and was struck
with a voice in Petticoat lane. She
at onee made inquiries about the boy
with an amazingly i*,o,»l result. He
has since been in the provinces and
charmed everyone. Recently he sailed with his father to New York.
where he appears fur the first of 2b
weeks in America at a salary of
(200 a week.

was brought down, and when-he tritd
to extricate tho snake the latter put
out venomous fangs, and hissed spito-

Further discoveries of the Roman
town of Corstopitum, near Cor-
hrldge-on-Tyne, were mentioned at a
meeting of the Newcastle society of
Antiquaries. 1'rofessor Laverbeld, of
Oxford, who presided, remarked that
in his opinion they were the most
important ever made in Britain. As
for the Roman masonry, he had never
seen sueh fine masonry, and there
was ample evidence that the site was
even larger and more important than
had been supposed.

OIL.
(Victoria Colonist.)
About fifteen years ago a per sou
acting for the Standard oil company
wrote   to   Ottawa   asking to be tn-
fuiui'il if the geological survey had
any reliable information relating to
the occurrence of petroleum in Canada lite letter brought forth a
tiumbei of reports and a replv. The
lattei stated that there was an
ami ia southeast British Columbia,
where i: was known ihat oil was to
hi found, bui the official, who wrote
It, was kind enough to add that owing to the difficulties of getting Into
the country, it would be unwise to
iliiuk of sending any one to prospect
it. Thy o-liclol meant well; he was
only ■ half dozen years or so behind
the limes. Ih* did uot realize that
the immediate vicinity was being
prospected for mineral, and he did
not appreciate that a discovery ol
i.il would bring about transportation. More is known about the
region now. Transportation is
available, If liul to thu oil district, at
least lo its vicinity, one or two
wells have been bored and a small
refiner) is In operation. There ate
oilier places in tho province whew
scepages'Indicate that oil is to be
found in quantity, aud it is time
that greater attention was paid tu
the development of ihis valuable resource.
.Most of us associate petroleum
only wiili illumination, although
lately we have begun to think of it
as a fuel, hut these are only two "i
many uses to which it is put, An
anaesthetic Is nude of it; gasoline Is
llcrivcd from it, so is naptha, no Is
benzine; also vaseline.' It forms the
base of chewing sum, is used in the
manufacture of drut;s to an Incredible degreo, and no less than 130
varieties of oil are prepared from the
crude material which comes out oi
the wells. There will be an enormous demand for illuminating oil as
Western Canada becomes settled, ami
the length of the winter nights
makes the cheap production of this
important illuminating agent of tlic
greatest interest. The Canadian
sumih :i nil for U-d-tinj* purposes e:
said to be only one-fifth of tho actual
amount consumed, and thorc has Inn
no very recent expansion of tbe home
product-, Some discoveries have;
been made in the eastern Maritime;
Provinces, which promise well, and
capital is forthcoming to develop the
prospect Sj but these arc too tar away
to make it posslblo for them t<*- be
serious competitors in th« western
market, even if they should "rove
equal to meeting local consumption
The great barrier is tbo cn*,t ot
transportation, which is said on a
transcontinental haul to equal the
cost of the oil in the firpt olace.
The eon sump tion throughout th*
world is enormous, bolng nearly SOO,*
IW0.000 barrels a year, and it it
constantly increasing. As furl Mr
the generation of Steam petroleum is
growing in favor. The Admiralty
has already adopted it 'o some extent, and it is stated that several of
the transatlantic, steamship Companies intend introducing it. Tber-* is
prnbnhlv t.ot one natural product (>>r
which there is as great a variety of
uses, that can be produced as cheaply
for which there is so rapidly Increasing a demand as for petroleum,
and we repeat that the time has
come when greater attention might
advanlagenuslv lie paid to the development of British Columbia oil
fields.

Mr. I). It. Oourlay, advertising

Toronto and Winnipeg! is amongst the
prominent moo and women who testify to Zam-Buk's uieat curative
power. He writes to tbe Company,
as follows:
"Gentlemen: 1 have pleasure in stating that upon tbe recommendation of
a relative I purchased a box of vour;

That is just where Zam-Buk proves
its superiority: It is treated b>
initi and women who have tried it
as altogether different to ordinary
preparations. Doctuts,     hospital
nurses, trainers, matrons of Convalescent homes—all give Zam-Buk a
good word; and better still they use
it. Zam-Buk is as good for muscular
stiffness, sprains, rheumatism arid
sciatica as it is tor skin troubles.
Hockey players and athletes ■ general find ft invaluable. For eruptions, pustules, scalp sores, itch
eczema, ulcers, bolls, abscesses blood
poison, cuts, burns, bruises and abrasions, it is a speedy cure. Takes the
soreness out of wounds almost instantly, and kills all disease -errns
thus preventing festering and Inflammation. All druggists and stores

SINCE 1896
It. is proposed to show verv brlelly
what the Llheral government has done
iu promote the peace, prosperity and
general welfare of the Canadian
people, .md lo develop the wonder-
full) rich resources id tlic couuli)
which ai<- our common hurltage,
The Liberal government has mi
hoasts lo malic, and is not vainglorious. Il submits ils record iu
ihe people, confidently believing that
a calm, dispassionate and careful
consider all on thereof, will bring
about a iiiumpbaiit verdict in
favor.
There Is no doubl whatever that a
wonderful cltungu for Ihe better has
taken place iu Canada during the
period the Liberals have heen in
utfiue. Tho Canada nf today is as
different from the Canada of 181)11 as
da\ I i miii night.
Marvelous progress In eu-ry sphere
ol industrial octlvitj has been made
—and In reason thereof a new spirit,
has arisen among Canadians— a spirit
which means greater pride iu their
country, aud n most hopeful view as
tu its future development. Abroad,
Canada is now looktd upon as one o-
ilie rising nations, ii is the premier
colony nt the empire, and is held in
ilu- higljest respect and admiral ion by
lira people ol llie Mother Country.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the veteran Liberal premier, lias been described us
ilu- foroinosi statesman in Greater
llrilflin.
The Liberal government has been u
wor-king government; it. has heen
doing things foi Canada all the
lime, according t.i> tbe best ot ils belief and ability.
Tbe government invites calm and
htudious review, liy ever) elector, of
ms record as disclosed in this
column. 11. has no fear of the decision ihat will be arrived at hy the
general electorate if » fail and iust
verdict be given; il humbly believes
ih.it it     is entitled,    nn its record,
lo a  renewal    of    Hit nlidenee     nt
the people.
Promt time to time since the lirst
revision changes were made, and in
isuti a general revision took place.
As regards all these changes, the
goverumeot kept steadily iu view the
une object—to deal fairly with the
whole people, and not favor unduly

To fairly and properly appreciate
what has boon done, it is necessary
in consldor the conditions which prevailed wlten thu Liberal government
took ollice in 1890. It is no exaggeration to state that, tbe country
was then practically at » standstill;
business was stagnant, manufacturers
were discouraged; fanners were dla-
.satisfied. Tbe Conservative govcrn-
menl bad brought disgrace upon tlte

SONS.
REV
(Etta.nd Brown at Minmdosa.)
Allow me briefly to summarize the
reasons why, in my judgment, the
Liberal government should be again
returned to power by a handsome
majority:
1. As an endorsation of their enterprising and businesslike policy, resulting in large immigration to Western Canada.
2. As a pronouncement by Ihe
farmers of Western Canada in fawn
nf a tariff for revenue, as against ■*,
Inrlfl whose leading feature is protection.
3. As an endorsation ot the policy
of Ihe laud for the settler, bv means
of which 30,000,000 acres have liven
opened for homestead entries,
I     \s    a ncrtice   lo the great Cons-rut i\e party that Ihe eampai■■-. of these statements

THEY     TAKE     CARE   OF   TWO
FIRES IN    ONE NIGHT IN A
MASTERFUL MANNER.
Between 7.80 and 8 o'clock last
Monday night an alarm of tire was
sent into the department and without
elelay the volunteer organisation
hurrit.il to the C.P.R. statitm, where
a tire had started in the basement,
due to an overheated furnne'e. The
department met- with difficulties, ow-
lug lo the fart that the gratings
aud entrances to the Itasemeut were
fastened solidly so that it seemed
impossible for a time for the department to gnlll an entrance with
the hose so as to successfully battle
with the (lames. Within a short
time after the alarm bad hern given there seemed to lie no olianco what-
\cr to save the building, as the
(lames had gained such headway as
to In- belchiu- forth from the
stairway leadini! from Ihe basement
a nl also creeping through the doors
in the ticket office and the waiting
rooms. But hotter work was never
done bv the hoys of the local department tltun *'oa done that nl
t lulcr the limirucllona of Chief Fink
and Aftsltttnnl Chiel Manning, volumes1
of water were thrown into the

best volunteer tire brigade iu Western
Canada the C.P.R. would he preparing plans today lor n   new station.
Hardly was the fire al the station under control when another
alarm was soil tided and the department were called lo a house in the
restricted district, lu this case as
at the station, great work was per-
1 formed, and although the iutori.tr ot
the premises were damaged the build.
Ing was saved and none of the adjoining houses injured.
Cranbrook lias reason to feel
proud of her Ore department. The
work of last .Monday night was a
beautiful Illustration of the ellicien-
i-v of the department as a
Whole and the loyalty of the men an
individuals. When the alarm was
sounded the men were at their
homes, at lodire meetings, at social
Iu net ions, and on the street, in fact
scattered throuuhnut the city, and
yet within a few minutes they were
at the tire working like heroes to
save the property, which they accomplished in a most emphatic manner. The man who has one word
to sav against the Cranbrook fire de-
rtnieut, or one sneer to offer at t-lie
efficiency of tho-r services, is the
man " l*n s-h mid have no abiding place
in Cranbrook, nor the good will ot
those who have reason to a»prtelate
the great work done by the Cran*
brr-o- lire department in ihe past.
