Quartered In Campbell-Manning
Sixty-five of the local recruits were
to have left here for Comox earlier
in the week but have been held up
on account of the train blockade between here and tho Coast As soon as
the train service Is resumed they will
leave, probably joining tho Nelson
contingent at that city.
The men are now housed In the
Campbell-Mann lug block, or at least
the greater part of them. They have
most comfortable quarters here, all
steam-heated, with toilet and both accommodation, and have a plentiful
supply of straw-filled ticks and blankets. Meals are served in the long
wide hall-way, whlui makes a very
satisfactory dining-room. The character of the meals Is good. Including

East Kootenay and those of the Couer

to be clear. In support of this opinion, Dr. Schofleld quotes from Ran-
some's description of the Granite mine

similarity ln that both deposits ar J

of that latter that those who know

veins will be again picked up with
depth. Even assuming that they are
exhausted, wo have the gold quartz
veins on Perry creek to take their
placo. In the memoir already referred
to Dr. Schofleld says:
"The gold quartz veins occur for
the most part in argillaceous quart-
zltes In the Creston formation which
are well exposed on Perry Creek. The
deposits occur as true fissure veins.

of 400 feet.
Concerning the gold values of the
deposits, Dr. Schofleld quotes a re-

Luckily for the reputation of the crock
the provinclnl mineralogist, W. Fleet
Robertson, came In and made a personal and expert examination of the
mill-tailings and fond us he says iu
the report, "thut he could save In each
pan, besides the sulphides, a globule
of mercury as big aB the head of a
match and a strip ot amalgam in tlte
bottom of the pan from a quarter to
a halt an Inch long. On assay the
mercury and amalgam carried 2 per
cent gold, the alllngs giving $4 In gold

These are tho veins that provided
thu gold for the Perry creok shallow
placer gravels, which between 1864
and 1882, yielded some $7,000,000. The
deeper gravels, which could not be
operated by the old time placer miners, were secured as a hydraullcking
proposition by the Perry Creek Hydraulic Mining company. Concerning
this pioperty the provincial mineralogist In the year 1903 reported that
"Certainly on thc right bank of the
creek there ls an old channel, the bank
representing the face of which . . .
has been cleared of timber to thc
summit. This bank Is 400 foet high and
composed of fine gravel, etc. This
bank Is ubout half a mile ln length
and Is fully a quarter of a mile in
When theso properly authenticated
facts became known to the public it
Is surprising that, to use an overworked phrase, peoplo began to alt
up and take notice, ror it is doubtful
It even Alaska can show anything
more extensively promising than the
gravel hills along Perry Creek, Moyle
river and Weaver creek.
The result has been that the Perry
creek gold deposits, both lode and
placer, have during the year been examined by several experts acting for
Interests tn the States and Canada
and deals are now pending for the
purchase of the Homestake and Eclipse groups, the Perry Creek Hydraulic company's property and plant, and
also a group of placer claims held by
the Macdonald-Gowski-Lennle interests. These claims lie upstream from
the hydraulic and were sought to be
operated by installing a regular railway steam shovel to lift the gravel.
The difficulty ot disposing of the tailings was apparently not sufficiently
considered. Preparations are now
under way to test this ground by sinking shafts to bedrock.

Mayor Clapp, Mrs. G. F. Stevenson and
Mr. W. H. Wilson, had a most difficult
task ln selecting the prlze-wlnnera
from among the many deserving costumes, but their decisions gave very
general satisfaction. Mr, A. L. McDermott aB "The Prince of India", won
flrst for men's costume, Miss M. Morton as "Miss Canada" won flrst for
lady's costume, Miss Delia Drummond
easily captured first In the comic
class for hor Impersonation of a negro
character, while ln the girl's class Patricia McDermott was awarded first
as "Belgium" and In the boy's class
Raymond St. Eloi won flrst as Chinese boy.
The St. John Ambulance Association
received as their share of the gate
receipts the sum of 124.85, and took In

We wish to direct tbe attention of
our readers to the article reproduced
on our front jiugc, written by Joseph
Ryan, secretary of tbo Cranbrook
Board of Trade, which recently appeared lu tlie special number of the
Nelson Daily .News, and which ban attracted very considerable notice una
comment botli in financial und nro-
f*;.srilonul circles,
Wjhtlo Mr. Ryan is recognized as an
expert on tiie mineral resources of
East Kootenay, tiie vulue of bis writing consists, not in the expression of
liis knowledge or opinions on tlie subject, but in the array of authorities
which lie quotes in support oi' his
statements and hi tho remarkable
manner in which he focusscs those
authorities to illuminate liis points.
The article is u text from which all
of us can preach the good gospel ot
Our amazing mineral wealth witiiout
fear of contradiction, bucked, as wc
are, by tlio considered und expert
opinions, and statements of actual
facts, by men of tlie worldwide repute
of Dr. Schofleld, D. Ph., and W. Fleet
Robertson, our Provincial Mineralogist, admittedly two uf tlie most careful and conservative writers on thc
subjects of geology and mining now
before the i.ubltc.
Tho time hus como when it is up to
ub, up to every one of us to inform
ourHelvcfl on our minerals, what they
can be made to mean for us, what they
actually do moan for places far less
blessed than we are in such products,
and what enormous potential wealtb
they represent. The pay-roll from the
lumber industry formerly thc very
life-blood of tho prosperity of our
city and district, is steadily decreasing with a steadily decreasing output,
causing a corresponding drop in tiie
amount of employment afforded hy the
C. P. R. Agricultural prosperity is a
plant of slow growth, and is, essentially an employer of home labor, tlie
labor of the family, rather than of
hired help.
To what, then, aro wo to look to
Insure the future prosperity, or oven
the very existence of our city, which
the Cranbrook public has neglected to
an extent thut Is simply u (believable
Tho astounding apathy nnd indifference of our people Is of BO profound u
character tliat, not alone will wo not
avail ourselves of what hi under our
feet on every hillside around us, but
even the mining men of outside points,
who keep a wonderfully keen car to
the ground for noise of a chance to
make easy money, cannot bo got to
believe that we have the great resources the article we quote proves so
abundantly. Why? Because we hnve
not faith enough, or knowledge
enough, or courage enough amongst
us to get up In a body and tell tlie
world we have the stuff. That is what
positively must be done, if Cranbrook
ls to prosper as site deserves to prosper. We must shout It, print it on the
insiders of our hats and our heads,
print It on the,banners wc carry on
our motor cars, teach it to our children to recite In steady chorus, the
Cranbrook slogan "CRANBROdK HAH
MONEY." Yos, we have It, and If we
but have the faith, wo shall soon
make tho mountains move and pour
their hoarded wealth into tho valleys
and the villages, tho towns and tho
cities. Lot us ruiso onr hearts. The
night Is pnst, nnd It Is for us to prepare to take our share of tho prosper-
My that ts surely ahead of us. i
The poultry farmers nf this Province
received a hud blow "below the belt"
last year hy tlie large lm] ortatlons of
Chinese eggs, which wi ro rotntled at
prices considerably below those at
which eggs could bo profitably produced here. In many Instances those
Chinese eggs retailed as "local fresh
■ eggs") thus in addition casting a sttg-
: ma on the homo product when bought
by discriminating purchasers under
the assumption tliat thoy were the gen-
; uine B: C. product.
With a view to preventing further
loss and discredit, the directors of the
! recent B. C. Poultry Association Con-
\ voution at Chilliwack drafted a proposed "Egg .Mark-; Act", a copy of this
1 together with petition forms lias been
.received by  the secretaries of   the
! Farmers' Institute and Poultry Asso-
' elation, to he forwarded When tlio necessary signatures have been received
;to the Dominion Member at Ottawa,
Mr. F. W, (.Ireen, in order to secure
action  this  session   if  possible.   All
Fanners' Institutes aud Poultry Associations throughout tlio Province are
co-operating In this very necessary
! Tho Act as drafted calls for the
[ stamping of eggs which come in tho
following classes: "Cold Storage",
"Preserved", and "Foreign", theso bo-
ing stamped hy the cold storage firms,
| preserver, and shipper respectively, hi
: addition, wherever torelgn eggs are
used or served commercially, a sign
not less than four Inches high shall
bc posted in a conspicuous place where
it can readily be seen. This lntior
i provision is In line with legislation
| which has already been adopted by our
American cousins in thc state of Washington.
Some such act has been a crylnp
necessity for a long time, for the egg
business has not only suffered from
the competition of Cninese eggs, but
a'so from the unscrupulous method
of some export dealers who bought
large quantities of low-grade eggs
from the United States, mixed them
with Canadian eggs, and exported them
to Croat Britain, thus causing Canadian eggs to fetch a lower price than
customary on account of the unreliability of the exported product.
It scorns a pity that tho proposed
Act does not embody a clause calling
for a date stamp on all eggs sellinr
as now-laid. Ono reason for tlie predominance of tho Danish egg on thr
English market is the date stamping of
ill eggs hy the Co-operative Egg Asso
elation of Denmark, thus ensuring the
English consumer a guaranteed pro'
duct. This dale stamping is done by
tlie poultry farmers in and around
Duncans, on Vancou/er Island, with
tho result that tlieir eggs always-com
ninnd top prices in the Victoria trade.
Tho handling of eggs Is frequently n
profitable side-line in connection with
a creamery, and should It bc undertaken by the proposed Cranbrook
Creamery, the eggs from this district
would fetch the highest Prices if tho
regulation were made and enforced
that they should be stamped with tho
date thoy were laid.

(Scientific American)
Theoretically, thc United States, be-
ing the richest country in tlie world
liould have tho strongest nuvy In Uu
■vorld—practically, the United States
liould huve a navy a little stronger
than that of the nation whoso policies
.re most likely to render that nation
in enemy,   Tho strongest navy is pos-
cssed by (Ireat Britain; but ber language, iier laws, her code of private
nblic and International morality, and
ibovo all, her greut International pol
cIob, nre so similar to those of tin
United states that It is quite annecos
wry for tliis country to possess a navj
•kiuil to that of Ureal Britain. On
he other hand, Germany, whicli pos-
icsses tlio second strongest navy, be-
leves that It has came for a deep-
seated grievance against the United
Rates, because this country lias tumid itself into un arsenal for tin
iiippiy of ammunition to the foes of
iermany; moreover, tho United states
believes that it has an even graver
•auso for grievance against Qermany,
because she has deliberately murdered
DVer one hundred United States cltl-
:ens upon the high seas, and, by fating to disavow tlie act of her decred-
ted executioner, give:! to that deed Unsolemn sanction of the Imperial Oov-
It is for the above reasons that thc
Scientific American wishes to go on
,'ecord, once more, as stating that, although tiiere is no practical reason
why we should endeavor to make our
navy equal in strength to that of Great
Uritnin, thero is every practical reason why tlioro is an immediate and
most solemn obligation upon Congress
it onco to bend all tlie resources, political, financial and Industrial, of the
nation to an urgent effort to bring
mr navy, at tbo earliest possible moment, up to tliat rightful position of
second In strength which it held at
the opening of the dreadnough era."
If thoro is one gnat lesson more
ban another, taught to us hy tho
European war, It is that we should
avoid that pitfall of procrastination
nnd futile effort whieh hitherto, ln all
the operations of the war on land, lins
caused the words "Too late" to bo
written upon thc operations of the
British armies. Furthermore, bad it
not been that tlie British navy long
igo learned the great lesson of preparedness nnd Itvod up to it, lhe war
hi Europe would havo been over bv
to-dny, nnd the Hritish Isles would
have been overrun ami held fust by
tha Pruaatan military machine.

A splendid aud'-nc; gathered last
Thursday evonin,; to listen to two representatives of "The People's Prohibition Movement of B. C." In the persons
.if Mr. W. P. Goard und Rev. A. E.
•mith of Brandon, formerly of Nelson,
b. a
Two splendid addresses were delivered und quite a little enthusiasm a-
■oused.    Mr. Goard impressed    tho
coplo by his clear cut style and the
aneiiess which he displayed. Wlth-
mt being vituperative or rabid tho economic position of the liquor problem
vas convincingly set forth. The history of the movement iu B. C. as out-
ined by Mr. Goard was a revelation
o many In so far aB it emanated from
i circle of business men wbo had gath-
*red together for purely business mat-
tors In nn effort to solve Bomo of
heir business difficulties. This movement was the result,   '
Mr. Smith was equally enjoyed as
he endeavoured to show the effect of
world temperance and community
dean. "An Idea" he said "Is unconquerable, and he who attempts to ar-
rost any tendency of world conscious-
loss Is aB peurlle and foolish as he
who would attempt to stop the revolu-
lon of the old earth, and would find
himself a victim before an overwhelm-
ug nnd Irresistible force. Any one
with half an eye for world movements
-Iglitly placed the, prohobltion movement among these world tendencies
•nd saw In lt a movement that, aside
from Its moral or economic phase, ls
.weeping onward with a mighty im-
etus and wonderful momentum. Any
•nan who fights against it thereby re-
eals his Inability to Interpret the
tgns of the times." At the close of
he address a number of questions
vere asked with reference to License
investment and the matter of compensation for the saloon keepers, which
iii'stlons were answered to the sat-
'sfactlon of the questioners.
An organization was also formed
which wlll push the propaganda In a

Ore Contains Nickel
Tho attention paid to thc gold re-
ources induced other Interests to
..ok Into the copper and other ores of
he St. Mary's river district, with
ipectal reference to the various groups
f claims owned by CharleB and Wll-
lam Evans on White Fish creek, an
affluent of the St. Mary. In general
. erms the formations on these claims
■onsists of quartettes Into which three
>r four great sills of gabro-dlortte
vere horizontally Injected and then
tilted at somewhat low angles. These
-.ills are themselves mineralized, the
•one of mineralization ln one case
which came under the attention of the
vriter, occupying trom 59 to 100 teet
of thc center of the sill which occurs
n tho form of a cliff about 400 feet
Igh and extending for over 1200 yds.
I'ong the face ot the mountain on the
west side of White Fish creek near the
Selkirk group: According to Dr. Scho-
leld, who made an exhaustive study
if these sills, the mineralized portions
contain native copper, galena sparingly, chnlcopyrlte, pyrrhotlte, ordinary
ron pyrite and erythrlte, or cobalt
iloom, occurring as a crimson red
■mmstatlon on the oxldifled outcrop
of thc copper bearing veins. The coper content runs low. One essay which
the writer had showed about 2 per
*cnt copper and 8 ounces stiver. Dr.
Schofleld does not record the exls-
ence of silver In the diorlte, but the
issay had by the writer recently certainly showed it. W. C. MeGlnnis, B.
So, and geologist of Winnipeg, made
a careful examination of the Evans
groups of claims during the past summer, and possibly taking a hint from
he occurrance of the cobalt bloom,
ad an assay run for nickel and found
alues to thc extent of $10 to the ton
f this scarce and valuable metal. Mr
MeGlnnis and &1bo J. C. Haas of Spo*
nne agree that thc mineralized por-
'miH of these sills represent an cnor-
nous tonnage, literally, hundreds of
millions ot tons. If tbe occurrence of
'he nickel be anything like universal
In the mass, lt may easily revolutionize the nickel Industry of the entire
Assays Go High
A highly Interesting gold-cobalt-
uickcl ore hns ben found on thc
Skookumchuck, within five miles of
the Kootenay Central Railway. A
recent analysis of this ore mn.de at
thc chemical department of the mines
llvlsion at Ottawa, identifies tbe mineral as an impure smnltitc-ehloan-
thlte, containing 10.75 ounces in gold
per ton; silver, a trace; Insoluble 14
per cent; arsenic, 53.75 per cent;
cobalt, 11.77 per cent; nickel 6.06 per
cent; sulphur, 6.68 per cent, and Iron
as metallic Iron, 7.5? per cent. The
vein also carries tungsten ln the form
ot scheellte. If such an ore, carrying besides the tungsten, nickel and
cobalt, $215 to the ton In gold, were
found in some frozen corner of northern Alnska, expeditions would be outfitted to exploit It and some one, like
Jack London, specially engaged to
write n special novel around lt for

Find Molybdenite
A most Important discovery ot
molybdenite occurlng in commercial
lUuntity, has been close to the St.
Mary's river. Two claims wcre stak-
od on the deposit uud uu assay of the
rough surface croppings, made at the
laboratory of the Trail smelter, gave a
.(•turn ot $120 per ton in Molybdenum
fhe entire supply of this metal reading England bas been requlstltloncd
iy the Imperial government and Is be-
ng paid for at tho rate of $12,000 per
on, on tlie basis of 90 per cent pure
molybdenite, or molybdenum sulphide.
■Molybdic acid produced from this
uetal, Is the secret agent so long used
iy the Krupps tor toughening steel.
It will be noticed aU through this
.rtlcle how persistently the name of
it, Mary's river occures. lt cannot be avoided. Thc area drained by
lie St. Mary's river and Its affluents,
'erry creek, Hell's Roaring creek,
White Fish creek, Baker creek, the
*ast and west forks, Pyramid creek,
Vlki creek and Mark creek embraces
fully 800 square miles of country
mazingly rich ln minerals, gold, copier, zinc, silver, lead, nickel and nio-
ybdenite. Not the veriest fraction of
his great area has been touched. It
s moBtly virgin ground. The main
river cuts at neatly right angles
brough the contact veins, which
Urlke generally about 15 degrees west
if north; while the affluents coming
'n from the north nnd the south, cut
he flBsure veins about square across,
.'he country is, therefore, easily pros-
ected and, what Is better, Intelligent-
y prospected. It in simply amazing
'low utterly neglected this land has
ain and would have continued so,
vere it not for the Invaluable services
if Dr. Schoiield of tiie geological survey.
The night appears to bo passing,
'-.ast year seems to- show a marked
■ovlval. N. A. Wallinger, government
'.gent and gold commissioner at Crnnbrook, who has personal and practical
experience of the mining of tho dls-
rlct for 20 years, states that thc total
uimber of free miners' certificates
'ssued tn 1915 was 261, mineral claims
-ecorded 91, placer claims recorded 13,
*nd certificates ot work Issued 235, by
far the largest number for many years.
At the request of tho writer   Mr.
Wallinger was good  enough  to give
the following:
Forecast of Mining On look for 1116
"For tho past 12 or 15 years I do
iot think there has been the same Interest shown with regard to mining
iffuirs in this district that there ls
low. This ts shown more clearly by
the number of Inquiries received and
Also by the number of claims staked
and certificates of work Issued. Es-
necially Is this marked ln the gold
division, where practically 75 per
cent ot the claims located have heen
on free milling gold quartz; and the
nlacer claims amounting to 13, are
more than the record for the last five
or six years put together. In tact,
"t would not be out of the way to Bay
Mint the whole outlook for mining ln
♦he future Is most favorable, and we
ire confidently looking forward to an
■nflux ot prospectors and mining engineers next year. The report of the
lominion geoloetst on the Cranbrook
irea has certainly helped In this respect and It Is to he hoped that this
Interest will bo maintained, as there
Is no doubt that wc have In this section surface showing of free milling
ouarts, cooper and galena to which
may now be added a new discovery of
molybdenite, which would be very difficult to equal as outcrops.
Tho transportation of the country
bas Improved during the last year In
the completion nnd construction ot tho
Kootenay Central railway through
the main valley of the country connecting thc Craw's Ncm branch of the
Canadian Pacific railway with tho
main line at Golden. There ts some
hope borne out by rumor, that a
branch line will be put tn up thc St.
Mary's river, In which case the low
grade copper properties ln t hat area
will be served by transportation that
Is expected will enable - work to be
done to show their true values. The
deposits appear to be large but of low
It is unfortunate tor this district
that some scheme tor making use of
bodies of low grade ore has not been
formulated. There are very large bodies of pyrrhotlte carrying galena,
which evidently defy separation. I
am quite sure that lt would repay
some thorough ore expert to try and
find out some method of making this
a paylug commercial venture. It Is thc
mining Industry that ts going to lay
the foundation of tho prosperity of the
country. Given tlie working mines
every farmer can find a market for
bis produce for cash, and real estate
will find its true level, and be on a
substantial basis, safe from unreasonable Inflation."
The attention of those Interested In
Social Reform is directed to a conference which ls to bo held In tho Methodist church on Thursday evening and
Friday morning, February 3 and 4
when Rev. Hugh Dobson, B. A., an
export in all questions relating to this
great topic that is gaining such a hold
on the thinking portion of the population, will be present and deal with
all questions relating thereto. As suggested the proceedings will not be
merely ln the form of addresses but
of a confcrentlal nature, and any
questions affecting the welfare of
society, labor problems, child problems, clvtcB or moral questions wlll
be gladly discussed and explained. A
very cordial invitation Ib extended to
all Interested. Thursday, Feb. 3rd

The annual congregational meeting
of Knox Presbyterian Church was held
In the church on Wednesday evening,
January 19th. To judge from the slim
attendance at the meeting, one would
think that there wert very few Presbyterians left tn Cranbrook or that
they have very little interest ln the
affairs of their church. The Board of
Managers reported that they have
found lt exceedingly difficult to raise
sufficient money to pay the ordinary
running expenses of the church and
the year has closed with a deficit of
several hundred dollars. This fact and
the almost complete absence of tho
members of the congregation from
the annual meeting ls very discouraging to those who have been giving
tholr time and efforts to the business
affairs of thc church on behalf of the
members generally. It must also be
very discouraging, especially ln tlmos
like the present, to the minister ot the

TO THE LADIES OF CRANBROOK AND DISTRICT, that we have again opened our doors
for business. We have thousands of dollars' worth of the Halsall & Co. stock to dispose of
at prices that must at once appeal to the saving housewife—many lines where even the wholesale
prices will be lost sight of. This stock, sotipled with the John Fraser stock, which we purchased in
Armstrong, B. C, at 48 cents on the dollar, amounting in all to over $30,000, we will offer at prices
much less than the average merchant pays for his goods. Every article a genuine bargain. All merchandise marked in plain figures, which will at once convince the purchaser that we will live up to
anything that we advertise to do. More than $20,000 worth of goods from the Fraser stock will be
on display on Saturday. We invite inspection, we invite comparison, and we will dispose of the entire
stock if prices coupled with values count for anything.
Not a single article will leave pur store on approval, nor will we charge to anyone.

His schoolmates, teacher, and Mends

pupil, and waa loved by all.
Joe was first taken 111 at school, hat
hs came hack tor seversl sessions
claiming to teel well again. Than he
hecame really ill and went home, little
dreaming lt waa the last time hs would
follow the familiar road trom school
to home. When typhoid was discov
ered hs waa taken to the St Eugene
hospital where he received every kindness and attention. At Christmas,
surrounded by toys, kind tsces and
everything nice, he waa very happy
and trom outward appearances seemed
to Improve, but Tubercular Meningitis
had set'In caused by the tever. Ths
doctor's skill anil nurss's loving care
could not surmount this as ths poor
little patient had not ths strength to
light such a terrible battle-
So it wu that he left us tor a mors
peaceful and tar happier place. Fate
had ordained that his stay with aa
should hs short. Hs lived to ses hla

Real Hockey
That the ladies can play real hockey
was amply demonstrated on Friday
night last when the Blue Birds and
the High School Girls met In battle
array. The "Blue Birds" (as ths teachers call themselves) showed their ability to teach the younger girls on the
Ice as well as in the school room, having considerably tlie better ot the
argument ln both combination and
stick-handling. Miss Pye was the real
star of the evening, her stick-handling and all round work being exceptionally good. The Blue Birds won
by the score of 4 to 0, though the
Bcore hardly does justice to the evenness of the play. The high school girls
played an aggressive game and kept
the puck moving from one end to the
other bud did not play as effective
combination as their opponents.
The following Is the line up:
Blue Birds—Goal, Miss Service;

Coal Creek had a narrow escape on
Sunday last from two slides from ths
mountain. But for ths fact that It happened between shifts there would almost undoubtedly have been a number
of fatalities. The slide hit the schoolmaster's house, and came up against

house wtth such force as ta break the
windows and partly fill the room with
snow. No one however was hurt,
though part of the men ars laid oft

It Is only a few years ago that Coal
Creek suffered from a slide which
caused six desths, and with auch a
heavy snowfall this year fears ars entertained that another slide may occur
with more serious results.
