COURT OF REVISION
ON VOTERS LIST OPENS
ON AUGUST 21st
BIG GAME HUNTING AT
CRANBROOK; AFTER
TRUANT ELEPHANTS
Period of Six Days Allowed
For Revision of Urban
Voters' List
The following statement received
from Judge Thompson as to the
mothod of revising the city voters'
lists will be read with interest. This
procedure applies to Cranbrook, Kimberley and Fernio, which are the
three urban polling centres in the
Kast Kootenay riding, Judge Thompson heing the ehlof revising officer.
There are throe urban districts In
the constituency of Mast Kootenay,
namely, Cranlironk, Fernie and Kimberley. For each of these places a
registrar will be appointed by the
chief oloctoral officer, and the date
of his sillings will be set by the chief
electoral officer, From him au appeal
lies to lhe revising officer, and any
person who has failed to register
may apply to the revising officer, It
is advisable dial persons who wish
their nanus to In- on the list should
apply to the registrar.
Mr. A. R. Lilly is not registrar in
Kimberley, but has been appointed by
mo as substitute revising officer.
Mr, A. ,J, Moffatt has been appointed
for Fernie as substitute revising officer, and I will act myself
in Cranbrook as chief revising officer. The sittings of the revising
officers will start on August 24th,
being 21 days before polling day,
Notice of the sittings will be posted
at the office of the revising officer,
the post office, and other places of
prominence. The revising officer sits
for six days to hear objections to
the names of any persons who are
improperly on the voters' list, und to
add the names of persons who are
entitled. After the expiration of the
sixth duy no name ean be added, although a mistake in the spelling of
any name may be corrected by the
revising officer at any time.
All the other polling divisions iu
Kast Kootenay are rural polling divisions, In these divisions u registrar
sits on the days prescribed, but at
any time, even on polling day any
person whose name is not on the list,
may be placed thereon, after taking
bis own affidavit, and heing vouched
for by two well-known and reputable
citizens.
It Is advisable, however, to coll
special attention in ('ranbrook, Fernie and Kimberley to the fact that
every person should see that his or
her name is on thc Provincial voters'
list, which is the basis of the registrar's list, and if it is not on he or
she should apply to tho registrar on
the dates set by the chief electoral
officer, or to the revising officer who
will sit on the 2-lth, 85th, 26th, 27th
88th and 30th of August.

GOLF CLUB NOTES
**************************
Members are hereby notified that!
an invitation tournament wiil be held
at Waterton Lakes Park on September f'th and (Uh, th* week-end of
Labor Day. As accommodation at
the lakes is excellent, but limited, reservations should be made as soon as
possible,    Any members desiring to
compete please notify the secretary.
The competition will be divided into
three flights according to handicaps,
IS holes medal play on both days.
Two flights for women, of 0 holes.
Interest iu the elephant hunt in
wliich many of the citizens of Cranbrook and district have iieen engaged
for the past three days, is still at a
high pitch, owing to tbe fuct that
there are still three of the six elephants which escaped on the Uth inst.,
at large, While the manager
of the Sells-Floto circus, Mr. Z.
Terrell, who is superintending the re-
co.very of the three elephants and in
charge i.f lhe 1 I wliich are remaining
OVOT here, knows approximately
j where the lfist elephants are, the
. matter of definitely locating their
I whereabouts is still a problem, trace-
of tlu m having been found in thi
I vicinity of Jap Lake and adjacent
places. Mr. Terrell on Monday received a wire from Witchita, Kansa.-,
informing him that on Tuesday a
large aeroplane loaded with expert
elephant trainers would leave thai
city, it heing expected lhat they
would reach Cranbrook on Wednesday morning, when a hunt would he
made in the district and doubtless
the missing animals brought to the
fold. While the loss of the elephants
and the difficulty in their capture has
upset the ideas of many citizens with
regard to the activities of the huge
ijuadrupeds, to many the matter of
locating such beasts of burden would
appear an easy one. The experience
of some of the amateur hunters, however, is enough to dissuade the minds
of any who believe that the elephant,
particularly those of the circus variety, is a docile animal. With regard
to safety in travelling, it takes one
very fleet of foot to keep up with
these monsters. Children and others
who are interested in animals und
those who are readers of C. P. Cooper
in the Saturday Kvening Post, will
be interested to know that umong
the animals owned by the Sells-Floto
circus, there are such well-known
creatures as Trilby, Freida, and Kas,
the latter being the abrevintion for
Kansas, which is the elephant's proper name. The names of the others
in captivity are Mo., for Missouri,
Snyder, jr., Mary, Bessie, Babe,
Tommy, Tony and Virginia. Those
at present enjoying the freedom of
the hills of Kast Kootenay are Charlie
Ed., the baby elephant, of 10 years,
find also Myrtle and Tillie. In order
to decoy the missing elephants, those
in charge have two elephants located
in un opening where they might be
seen by those ut large. These are
tied und anchored. Along with the
elephants are five camels, which occupy the same car as a number of
the large animals.
Later advice indicates that it waa
not found feasable to have the aeroplane proceed to Cranbrook hearing
Mr. Gardner, the expert trainer, and
he is accordingly continuing his journey by rail, expecting to reach Cran-
brook on Friday. The areoplane got
as far as Denver, completing the first
leg of the journey and then encountered bad flying conditions, causing
[delay. In the meantime it was decided not tn hold the remaining elephants in the cars here any longer,
I and it was expected that these ani-
! mats, which have been kept here
■since their companions gained their
j liberty mi Friday last, will start on
their way south on Thursday, the
I others tn follow when they are captured.
Manager Terrell left to-day to get
Ithe animals across the line, after
} which he will return to Cranbrook,
by which time Mr. Gardner will be
here. In the meantime Mr. Ironsides
I is representing the Sells-Floto com-
J pany, and any business regarding the
elephants will he transacted by him.

Elephant Hunt Create* Interest
Crnnbrook district, as well ns the
Sells-Floto circus, is getting n good
deal of advertising out of the hunt
for the escaped elephants now in progress. Tuesday and Wodnesdny telegrams cume to the Herald Offlce in
flocks, asking for information regarding the lost elephants, the onqulr-
ies coming from the big doilies all
the way from Seattle and, nnd all
ihrough the west. Pally newspapermen nre eternally on the hunt for
something new under the sun, und apparently'an elephant hunt in the vicinity of Crunbrook provided the new
thrill. The requests for stories wero
all the way from 50 to BOO words. In
addition, some of the railroad mon,
whose truin orders hore the unusual
endorsement to look out for elephants, are sending them in their brotherhood magazines a» curiosities, ho
the story will he spread all over the

There lire three urban district

namely, Crnnbrook, Pernie und Kimberley. For each of these places u
registrar will he appointed by the
chief electoral officer, and the date
of bis sittings will he set by the chief
electoral officer. From him an upjwal
lies to the revising officer, and any
person who has failed to register
may apply lo the revising ofllcer. It
is advisable that persons who wish
their nanus lo be on the list should
apply to the rogistrar,
Mr. A. R, Lilly is not registrar in
Kimberley, but has been appointed by
me as substitute revising officer,
Mr. A. J. Mofl'utt has been appointed
for Fernie as substitute revising officer, and I will act myself
in Cranbrook as chief revising officer. The sittings of the revising
officers will start on August 24th,
being 21 days before polling day.
Notiee of the sittings will be pouted
ut the ofllce of the revising officer,
the post office, and other places of
prominence. The revising officer sits
for six days to heur objections to
the names of any persons who ore
improperly on the voters' list, and to
add the names of persons who are
entitled. After the expiration of the
sixth duy no nume eun be udded, although a mistake in the spelling of
any name may he corrected by the
revising officer at any time.
All the other polling divisions iu
Fust Kootenay are rural polling divisions. In these divisions a registrar
sils on the days prescribed, but at
any time, even on polling day any
person whose name is not on the list,
may be placed thereon, after tuking

informing him thut on Tuesday a
large aeroplane loiideil with (.Xpert
elephant trainers would leave that
cily, it being expected that they
would reach Cranbrook on Wednesday morning, when a hunt would be
made in the district and doubtless
the missing animals brought to the
fold. While the loss of the elephants
and the difficulty in their capture has
upset tlie ideas of many citizens with
regard to the activities of lhe huge
quadrupeds, to many the matter of
locating such beasts of burden would
appear an easy one. The expericne
of some of the amateur hunters, how
ever, is enough to dissuade the minds
of any wlio believe thnt the elephant,
particularly those of tbe circus variety, is u docile animal. With regard
to safety in travelling, it takes one
very fleet of foot to keep up with
these monsters. Children und others
who are interested in animals and
those who are readers of C. P. Cooper
in the Saturday Kvening I'ost, will
be interested to know that among
the animals owned liy the Sells-Floto
circus, there are such well-known
creatures as Trilby, Freido, and Kas,
the latter lieing the alireviution for
Kansas, which is tiie elephant's proper nume. The names of the others
ill captivity are Mo., for Missouri,
Snyder, jr.. Mary. Bessie, Babe,
Tommy, Tony and Virginia. Those
at present enjoying the freedom of
the hills of Knst Kootenay are Charlie
Ed., the baby elephant, of 10 years,
(md also Myrtle and Tillie. In order
to decoy the missing elephants, those
in charge have two elephants located
in an opening where they might be
seen by those at large. These untied and anchored, Along wilh the
elephants are five camels, which occupy the same car as a number of
the large animals.
Later advice indicates that it was
not found feasable to have the aero,
plane proceed to Cranbrook bearing
Mr. Gardner, the expert trainer, and
| he is accordingly continuing his journey by rail, expecting to reach Cran-
brook on Friday.   The areoplone got

Exactly ten minutas lat or he rose
with a business-like finality. He was
not looking at Molly—little more
than a di'iit now in the counterpane,
her face deep in the pillows—but at
thr watch.
"There's one thing still," he said.

stay, and I'd rather not complicate
matters  with nurses.  .  ."
"It's not my fault I'm here, you
know." The voice from the pillows
was ""small, stifled, but obstinate.
"Trite enough. And, incidentally,"
In- smiled, "you did make met take
that early-morning dip, didn't you?
At all events, if by this time next
Thursday you are still of the same
mind, 1 promise you I shan't put a
straw in your way. Well—do you
give me your word?"
She nodded—just perceptibly—
without taking her head out of the
pillows.
"That's splendid," he said with
satisfaction. "Ah, and here's Aunt
Lindy in the nick of tisag with your
breakfast. I shouldn't «■ it a breakfast if it were mine," he added cheerfully, "but—it may pass for one with
you!"
"I don't—want any breakfast."
"Of course you don't. That's not
saying it will do you any harm,
though. Oh, Aunt Lindy"—he turned to the little old black woman who
was just entering the door with a
tray in her hands—"we seem to hnve

perhaps it's just as well. I have an

"That's Impossible," she said drearily. "One person can't take the responsibility for another."
"At least we could try it. You
see, I have a deep, ingrained aversion to waste, to useless destruction—"

CHAPTER  XVII
On the following Thursday Molly
ut near one of the windows of the
noin whose walls had bounded her
life now for three weeks, staring out
sombrely at a white sector of gravelled drive just visible through a tall
planting of shrubbery. The first crisp
hint of autumn was in the air and
Aunt Lindy had wrapped her from
throat to toe in an enormous blanket
robe of blue, which thrqw into startling relief the whiteness of her skin
and the darkened cornflower of her
eyes.
Out of doors a subtle, change was
everywhere to be detected. A certain
faintly tinseled and spangled efTect—
in the sunshine, in the air itself and
in the tint of leaves, which were spinning and whirling and drifting wing-
odly downward.
•She glanced at the clock on thc
mantel opposite. Twelve minutes after ten. She had given her word
until ten-fifteen. She leaned forward, rested her weight tentatively
against the screen of the French window—three stories from the ground.
It wns secured only by a light hook
at the bottom. He had trusted her,
then. . , .
At this juncture Aunt Lindy, who
had hobbled out of the room a few
minutes earlier on one of her abrupt
and flitting absences, threw open the
door with a flourish. "Merse, Greg
ter see you', honey," she announced
with all the pomp and ceremony of
the king's chief crier.
Molly knew now who he was.
That knowledge added the final drop
— if one had been needed—to her
bitterness and shame. He was the
man who had given her her scholarship. How he must despise her . . .
That she should be accepting further
kindness from him—hospitality, even
—was intolerable. She could not
bring herself to look at him, but went
on staring drearily out of the window.
He drew up a chair and sat down
near her, "By the way, do you happen to know what morning it is?"
he continued,
"Yes. it's Thursday, and"—she
glanced briefly at the clock—"ten-
fifteen."
He laughed. I didn't mean thc
day of the week. Do you know what
day of the month It is?"
She shook her head indifferently.
"It's the twenty-seventh of September.'1
When she showed no interest, he
added, "the university opens on the
1st of October."
Molly made no comment on that.
Instead—still without looking at him
—she said abruptly, "I want you to
give nie back my promise."
There was a moment's hesitation,
or perhaps it was only his usual de
llbernteneu of manner. Finally,
"That was what I wanted to talk to
you  about.  . .  ,"
"Vou do give it hack, then?"
When there wns again a pause,
she hurried on in the dull, insistent
monotone: "I've thought it all over—
my mother, the children, my scholar-
ship—iverything. But it's too dreadful. I can't—I haven't thc courage.
I haven't any courage at all—I haven't anything." She broke off and
fixed her eyes on thc white sector
of driveway.
"Of course I give it back," he conceded after a time, "but the trouble
is, suicide never settles anything."
"At least it can—rid mc—of this."
Face averted, she made a strengthless
gesture of unutterable abhorrence toward herself.
"My poor child, you think you nre
hurt In your soul, don't you? All
your life you've had it hammered into
you that the soul can be defiled. The
truth is, the soul is Uke a flame—
clean like a flame. You can't smirch
flame, can you?"
"I don't know. The flame in me
has—gone  out"
"If the tree is young and—full of
sap," Cochran pointed out in his mildly argumentative fashion, "you can
put it together nnd make it grow."
Mi was silent a little. Then he leaned forward, one big, firmly knit hand
on either knw.   "Tkmt'a what I waul
"Merte Greg  Ier  see  you,  honey,'

The local branch of the Farmers'
Institute held their annual picnic on
Sunday list this yenr, choosing Peek-
ham's Lake as the scene of the festivities. Although a fairly large
number turned out for the occasion,
the crowd was much smaller than
of former years, a lack of children
nt the picnic being especially noticed
in that it was impossible to gnthor
enough together to make the races
Interesting, which were planned by
the Institute, and consequently these
were scratched off the schedule.
However, although the kiddies were
off thc list, the adult "kids" of the
male gender found more than enough
to fill the afternoon, and their fun
waxed fast and furious. A horseshoe tournament was first staged,
and so great was the skill of the local
men that several teams renched the
finals, G. Napoleon and Jim Travertin
finally walking off with the cash
prize put up hy the Institute. Shortly after the conclusion of this tournament, the Bull River picked soft ball
team arrived on the field, blazoning
a challenge to the Wardnerites, who
immediately arose to the occasion and
responded by heating their opponents
'd'd to 11. A community supper was
next partaken of, forming a pleasant
culmination of the day's events, as
the muttering thunder which heralded Sundny night's storm being heard
in the distance, the party broke up
and journeyed homewards, after a
very enjoyable day as the guests of
thc Institute.
Mr. and Mrs. Win. Harris and family, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Harris, Messrs.
A. F. Churcher, Hneher and Migglns,
motored to Mud Lake and McBnlns
to picnic on Sunday.
George Thompson returned to home
on Sunday evening after spending
several days visiting at the Chas.
Hamrin camp at McBain's Lake.
Wardner has quite a colony at the
Lake this month, those camping there
including Mrs. Ben Daye and family,
Miss Kathleen Guest and Mrs. H,
Headdon, Mrs, Paul Storey and son
Alvin, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hamrin
and family, Mrs. Alec Daye, Mr. and
Mrs. J. E. Scanland and family, Mr.
John Matthews. Meanwhile the road
to the lake is kept well travelled,
both by husbands who motor out to
spend the nights with their families
and by the local people who motor
out to visit friends during the even-
ings.
When the traffic signal
says "go," Studebaker
slips quickly and quietly
ahead of the crowd. No
fuss—no strain; in a Studebaker the owner's wish is
the car's act. See it for
yourself. Better still-

Bass of the North Country
The niootls and fighting- qualities of the bass of the
north country aro fully explained In this article,
written by Ozark Ripley, the well-known authority on
angling:
Somehow or other, I am never impressed with the
ubiquity of bass until I travel Into the north parts.
Mr. Mioropterus, better known as the small mouth baas,
often as red-eye, seems to thrive, somehow, Vherever
you place li tin. In tbe South ho lives only In swift
mountain streams, but in the North country his abiding
places art- in lakes, where be grows to be a big, lusty
fellow, broad, strong and willing to tackle any offering
an angler sends his way.
I thought for a time that the range of tba small
month, as far as the north country waa concerned,
was limited to Lake Penage, the Kawartha Lakes and
others In Ontario, where he la especially large and a
vicious flghtor; but I found him up ln tbe LaurentJans,
even to Manlwakl, also along that nail route which
inns from Montreal to Mont Laurier In Quebec. This
makes me think tbat. Irrespective of tho cold waters,
this righting cbapHrill thrive anywhere you give him a
chance,
There nre parts of the north country where one will
be puzzled a bit to find tlie bass, unless ba strives to
bring a rise in a proper manner. They will take the
fly ■with greater avidity than a brook, rainbow or
hrown trout, hut the offering has to bo made to their
liking or not at all. If bass In the north country like
u; •■ ihlng betti r than all else It ia a floating fly.   They.
love them; they attack thorn whatever the shape or
color. But they have moods like other gume fish, and
many daya no response of any kind comes, Even If
you have made a long trip and have fished northern
bass waters without immediate results there is no lea-
son why you should he dltappolnted. Tliey will do -
business when they are In the mood and at no other
time.
I remember I once fished near Pine Rapids Camp
in tbe French River District. For four days I did
not get a single riBe, though I felt they were most
profitable bass waters as they had delivered tlie goods
nicely during the previous season. All the time then'
had been a driving wind from the northeast. Suddenly It changed to a mild west one on the afternoon
of the fifth day. AU at onco bass began to rise and
I never saw them do It so fast nor iu such numbers
ln all my life. They had found my lures ond the
weather to their liking and continued tlieir striking
mood for mnny dnys.
Wo make lone journeys to the north country for bass
and other game fish. It invariably pays to ho provided
with nn assortment of hues. There are days when
they wlll look at nothing bul the underwater lures;
then at what we might call the semi-underwater halts
and, too. as sure as fate, will come hours when onlj
floating fifes or casting baits will tempt them. Tht
man wlio tries continually and Is equipped with everything right, usually is the one who comes home With
the record-breakers.

the matters upon which Mr. Stevens felt impelled to municipal official
base the charges la- had hurled at the Liberal
government earlier in the session, and which resulted
in the appointment of a committee to go into the
matter. When litis committee brought iu a report
for lhe consideration of tlie house, it failed to include a proposal made by Mr. Stevens lhat censure
be passed on the then minister of customs, and the
government of which he was a member, for condoning such gross derelictions oi duty as the evidence
showed had been going on. This was made the basis
for an amendment offered by Mr. Stevens in the
house, and when il was found tliat the amendment
well worth the careful. month ll«-' meetings are held with no representative
time, giving the gist of °f »Ik' lml'lil l,rcscm hc>'oml " newspaperman and
' Notice of these meetings is post
ed in a public place, and the aldermen without doubt
would welcome attention from the taxpayers they
represent, in that extent.
One oilier point may bc briefly referred to. that
of the publication of letters with nom-de-plumes as
signatures. This practice is adhered to by the bigger newspapers, anil is intended to entirely detach
the consideration of Ihe question raised from the
personality of ihe writer, It should not make any
difference whether a man who writes a letter to a
newspaper pays live hundred dollars taxes or five
dollars—if il raises a pertenent public question that
was likely to carry, ami that it could not bc sub-1 merits consideration, il ought to get it. Ill a public
verled or warded oil by sub-amendments, thc Ring i meeting, when questions are invited, thc speaker on
government  resigned, and later  in  the house   the
amendment passed, definitely saddling upon the late
Liberal government lhe responsibility for the deplorable state of alTairs in thc customs department which
ihe committee found.
One of the principals iu the enquiry, thc minister
of customs in the late government, round whose head
a great deal of the storm gathered, has since passed
om to wlnre -ueli thing-, can no longer ruffle his
spirit. Nevertheless, the whole government of which
he was a member was involved, and one of the issues
of the campaign will be to decide whether Dr. King,
as a member of that government which has since
been censured in the house, by Progressives as well
as Conservatives, for what amounts to complicity iu
the irregularities, merits the endorsement of tbe
electorate.
It is abundantly proved that the former prime
minister was well aware of tbe condition of things
in the customs department, and it is equally clear
lhat he had not been disposed to take any action iu
the matter. Would anything have been done had
Mr. Stevens not had the courage to come out and
make the charges, which it lias since been proved,
were only wrong in that they were put too mildly?
There is no evidence lo show lhat any steps towards
clearing up the mess would have been taken but for
the Conservative demands.
Rather than take the trouble of going into the
question, or quite willing to accept a superficial view
of it, there are some who are content to think that
perhaps the slate ol affairs which was found to exist
had been there since before the Liberal administration went in. But a little reflection will serve to
bring back to mind how critical the nation was in
the years succeeding the war—how impatient thc
people were for a readjustment to pre-war conditions, aud how unlikely it is that conditions such
as this would have escaped the eagle eye of tbe opposition whicli was at that lime using every endeavor to break down lhe union government. It is only
since the war years, when the nation came to think
in bigger terms than ever before, when no goal, of
whatever magnitude, seemed too much to go after,
that this vision of easy fortunes to be made came
before the perverted minds of those who conceived
these smuggling undertakings.
It is the practice of civilization to treat misdemeanors on their individual circumstances. All
burglars are. no! treated as a general class and punished by form, Each individual case is tried separately,  a
That is the spirit lo which the electors should ex
amine thc conditions in regard to the customs department which Mr. Stevens has brought to light.
Dr. King was a member of the government under
which this state of affairs went on, and to that extent is responsible, ll is for the electors to decide
whether the Liberal government was culpable. If
so, pleading the constitutional issue, the tariff, the
budget or any other issue should not avail them,
for a government unable to set its own house in order is not fit to have entrusted to it the destinies
of a growing nation such as Canada.
the platform does not insist on having the name of
his questioner before dealing with the query, aud the
newspaper, after all. is only another form of the
public forum. This does not mean thnt thc Herald
encourages the anonymous lelter, far from it, nor
does it mean thai misstatements and abuse will be
condoned behind the veil of anonymity. But to insist on thc publication of identities with letters that
are relevant, is not in accord with newspaper practice of the present day.
MORI? TRUTH THAN FICTION
THK following banded in to the Herald hy a subscriber, may be looked upon as an extreme view
of the relations which arc coining to be established
between Canada and thc United States, hut nevertheless il is illuminating, in that it represents the
viewpoint of a surprisingly large number of ultra-
Americans, and it should serve to help open the eyes
of some Canadians on whom apathy seems to have
fallen. It was published in the Toronto Telegram:
GIVE THANKS TO CANADA
As on American, living ln Canada, permit me to
i express my thnnks on behalf of my countrymen ns follows:
Wc thank tho people of Canada for allowing us
to cut down your trees, take them across the border,
make them into paper, and then to sell that paper to you;
thus providing work for U.S. workmen nnd profit for our
bankers.
For buying our inferior coal at fancy prices instead of using your own, we thank you.
Kor using U.S. ruilronds to carry your wheat to
the seaboard. Our railroads can use these extra dollars
to pay moro dividends, while u few million more or leBs
of a deficit will not worry thc C.N.R. Just a little more
fancy bookkeeping will take core of thnt.   We thank you.
For bringing up and educating hundreds of thousands of your youth und then making it impossible for
them to earn a living in their own country. They make
the hest sort of immigrants and American citizens.
For buying our magazines, and our movies, thus
absorbing our customs and buying our goods, seen and
advertised.
For buying our vegetables and fruit at high prices,
and then allowing your own to rot, because of lack of
market.    Wo thank you.
For your rich to spend their summers in Atlantic
City and their winters in California or Florida.
For spending millions in worthless land in Florida,
instead of using it in your own industries at home.
For treating our thi-aves ao kindly by allowing
them to bring in their stolen silk duty free.
■ , ..    .     . .   i       , For making it impossible for your artists, authors,
punishment   accordingly   is  meted  out. i     ,   .       . ,.   .        ,       ,- ■       it, .*- . ,t„.
1 - I and playwrights to make a living at home, so that they
come to tho U.S. and enrich us with their talents.
For allowing our leisure clnss to fish out of your
streams and kill on" your game.
And wo particularly than the fair sex for their
craving for Americnn "style" in dress. They dash across
the border on every Canadian holiday by the thousands
and smuggle back mnny thousands of dollars' worth of
freuk clothing bought at specially marked prices for thc
Canadians.
And last but not lust, we sincerely thank the
King government for their tariff policy. Forcing the
Canadian automotive industry to close was a master
stroke. It will keep our factories busy for many months
to come. We will be glad to receive your skilled workmen nnd will use them to fill Canadian orders. Thc Detroit factories will he glad to put Mr. King on their pny-
roll nt any time.
Wo ulso appreciate the government's policy of
lowering their tariff each time we raise ours.    What

B. OF L. E. CONVENTION
IN WINNIPEG
Mr. Lou Owen received this week
nn excellent group picture of the delegates to the recent Canadian Union
meeting of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers held at Assiniboin
Park, Winnipeg, from July 27th to
July lab, In it can bo seen Mr. and
Mrs. Owen, much in the centre of
things, and looking as though they
were enjoying themselves. In connection with the meeting Mr. Owen
reports that it was considered by
many to be the most successful of its
k'ml held for many years, the arrangements of the managing commit-
tee and tho hospitality -shown by the
various govornmental, civic and provincial bodies as well as the two
large Canadian railway corporations,
leaving nothing tn be desired Besides
the regular meetings, which were very
beneficial and wliich were mldre&sed
by many prominent men of ihe Brotherhood, the social events phinei
for the delegates were of « very
pleasing nature.
On lhe evening of the first day
the delegates were made thoroughly
welcome at a reception and concert
at the Walker Theatre, when the freedom of the cily was granted them by
Mayor Webb. Wednesday a grand
ball was held at the Hoyal Alexandria
Hotel, which was also the headquarters of the convention. On Thursday
the sports were hold at Assiniboine
Park, followed in the evening by a
buffet luncheon and reception by the
city of Winnipeg at the parliament
building, when His Honor, Sir James
Aikins, Lieutenant-Governor, Premier
Hon. John Bracken, and His Worship
Mayor Webb delivered addresses of
welcome. The trainmen were signally honored in having the use of the
Parliament building for their reception, the evening being made enjoy-
ably complete hy the informal dance.
By kind permission of Lieut,-Col. C.
R. E. Willets, D.S.O., Officer Commanding, the band of tho Princess
Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry
was in attendance. The regular session being then concluded, the
parties, on Friday, were given a trip
through the wheat fields of Manitoba from Winnipeg to Souris, via
Brandon, where dinner was had, the
party returning i" Winnipeg in the
evening. On Saturday the special
train left thc C.U. depot for Kenora,
whero the engineers were the guests
of Division No. 536, Uie town of Ken-
•ra and the Board nf Trade.
This last it 'in Mr. and Mrs. Owen
were obliged to forcgoon account of
the necessity of arriving back} in
Cranbrook on the first of the month.
At the big reception on Friday
evening speakers whose names are
familiar to Crnnbrook people were as
follows: I), c. Coleman, A. H. Eager, and U, A. Pyne.
Both the Canadian Pacific Railway
and the Canadian National roads, as
well as the civic, provincial and governmental bodies left nothing undone
to afford the engineers an enjoyable
time. Mr. nnd Mrs. Owen returned
to the city on Wednesday.

and a hearty invitation is extended
to everyone to be present. A charge
of 26c will bo made to help the Institute for the crippled children fund.

MAYOR REPLIES TO QUESTIONS
Cranbrook, B.C.
August 10th, 1020,
The Editor, Cranbrook Herald:
Sir,—In your issue of the Bth
there appears a letter signed by Mr.
W. J. Wilson in connection with the
water situation.
I nm very glad that Mr. Wilson has
drawn the attention of the ratepayers to this situation. This situation
has become very seridus this year
owing to the unusual winter experienced last year, and also to the lack
of rainfall up to the present. The
council have had this matter under
consideration, and the City Kngineer
has been instructed to submit plans
and estimates for assuring the City
of a more adequate use of the Gold
Creek supply than the present plans
provide, and if another similar winter
to last is experienced this coming
winter, the citizens must be prepared
to meet the expenditure of a considerable sum of money for this purpose. I have no objections to find
with Mr, Wilson's statements only
that I would say that the remedy is
not so simple as he would think! I
would further like to point out to Mr.
Wilson that this situation is not one
which has been created by the present Council, or by the present City
Engineer. The scheme recommended and adopted by the Council of
1924 was considered by several engineers as adequate for the purpose
required.
I also welcome Mr. Wilson's sug-
Sestion as to the formation of u
.atepayers' Association, and 1 am
sure that this Council and future
Councils would only be too pleased
to discuss matters of interest with
such an Association's repreentntives
from time to time. If this idea is
followed up, and such nn Association
is formed and Mr. Wilson becomes
a members of this Association, I hope
that his attendance to the meetings
of such an Association will be as
regular as that of the members of
the council to thc council meetings.
In the same issue of your paper
there is a letter pertaining to municipal affairs over the signuture of
"A Ratepayer." I am not prepared
to discuss thc matters referred tn
with anyone who has not courage to
sign his own name to a letter of this
kind, but if the writer will disclose
his identity, I shall be pleased to
handle his letter with the same courtesy that I have extended to Mr.
Wilson.

MCLAUGHLIN
BUICK
UILT
An Engine Vibrationless Beyond Belief
Four Vital Engine
Improvements
To produce the silmt power-flow in the
1927 McUughUn-Buldc, McLaughlin •Buick
engineers have made four fundamental improvements in the structure of the famous
Mcl.aughlin-Huick Valvr-in-1 lead engine,
Including ••• Countcr-Voised Crankshaft
and a Torsion Balancer; new light-
weight pistons; and then a Completely
Cushioned l-nginc insulated and isolated
by rubber mountings, fore and aft, from
all metallic contact with the chasm.
The McLaughlin Motor Car Company,
Limited, today presents the 1927
McLaughlin - Buick, with an engine
librationless beyond belief.
Tliis achievement, we earnestly believe,
will rank as one of the most important
in all motor car history.
Our engineers, working in conjunction
with the engineering staffs of General
Motors Research Laboratories and
General Motors Proving Ground have
divorced tlie annoyance of vibration
to a point never before attained.
'Miry have given McLaughlin-Buick
motor cars a new luxury of quietness at
every speed, exceptional among all cars,
no matter what their price.
Never in all thc twenty-two years ol
McLaughlin-Buick success has there been
offered such convincing proof of engineering and manufacturing leadership.
McLaughlin-Buick offers you today a
brilliant example of the quality ol
McLaughlin-Buick craftsmanship—
Confident that acquaintance with its
performance and value will fix in mind
the conviction lhat money can buy
nothing finer—
Certain that you will discover, in thia
great new car, further evidence of tha
deep meaning in the longstanding
pledge: "When Better Automobile*
are built, McLaughlin-Buick Will
Build Them."
Other Vital Improvements
Another revolutionary improvement In the

and without a tingle moving part. The oil

McLaughlin-Buick performance b now made
more certain, more pleasant end more econo
mical by thermostatic control in thi coofiag
iystem.   Water circulation ii prevented and
the heat held in the engine, until the proper
operating temperature it reached.
Gear nohe is removed by Mel auw hli n-Buick'•

in all of its speeds. Further quictneu hat bees

And in this remarkable new car McLaugh-fca*
Buick introduces balanced teheed,  anothae
contribution to better driving.
The princely be.iuiy of the new lither bodies
is in thorough keeping with the unusual and
incomparable   performance   standards   now
attained.
The Mott Remarkable Fact of All-Value
This Greatest of all McLaughlin Hiurki is the Greatest of nil McLaujh-
fin-Btiirk values. McLaughlin-Buick volume has permitted engineering
-research and development on a scale f.ir beyond the reach of moal
manufacturer*
 I improvement hu leveled one price barrier after another, until
now you art offered, in thia new McLaughlin-(hick, a car as fine as
money can buy, at the price of cart of very ordinary quality.
Thla car will convince you. as no other car can, that money can buy

ELKS' FLAG DAY
PROGRAM CARRIED
OUT AT KIMBERLEY
A stranger visiting Kimberley on
Wednesday last would have had
cause for surprise at seeing the town
without representatives of ihe rising
generation. Any time between one
and half-past three o'clock in the
afternoon one enuld search the streets
in vain for a youngster under about
40 years of age. Children of various
ages and of all denominations had
accepted the invitation of the July
Ist committee, and the Elks, to enjoy an afternoon and evening of real
fun, and that the occasion was in
every way  a success  there can   be
,  shadow   of  doubt.
By  one   o'clock  a  crowd   had   as-
inbled on the new playground, and
the proceedings commenced with a
short speech by Mr. J. W. Brault, who
was listened to with much attention
liy young and old, and who spoke on
th*' significance  of the  flag.
Immediately following Mr. Brault's
remarks, a group photograph was
taken by Kotos, and an extensive program of sports engaged in ami prizes
awarded.

"Fifteen seats in the province of
Quebec and a staple government for

made recently by Hon. H. H. Stevens,

Centre Vancouver, who passed
thrlugh Winnipeg recently en route
to  Vancouver.

Yale will have a three-cornered
fight in the Dominion election campaign. F. B. Cossitt. of Vernon, is
in the field for the Liberals. Grote
Stirling, the sitting member, is the
Conservative candidate, and Col. Ed-
gett will be an independent candidate.
+    f    ♦
R. H. Gale, former mayor of Vancouver, who was tendered the Liberal
nomination for West Kootenay a.* being apparently the only man in sight
likely to put up any kind of a fight
against W. K. Esling, the former
member, was apparently in no haste
to accept, realizing probably better
than some of the West Kootenay
Liberals, what he would be up against.
Mr. Gale made a trip to Nelson this
week, and was met there by Dr.
King, who left here the end of last
week and who was endeavoring to persuade the former Vancouver Mayor
into taking up what appear.- to be at
the outset, a losing fight for the Liberal cause in West Kootenay. There
is apparently no one in West Kootenay of calibre strong enough to go up
against Mr. Esling and an acclamation would be to open a confession
of weakness.

week and visited her sisters, Mrs.
A. G. Hill, of Cranbrook, and Mrs.

A couple of head of cattle were
found poisoned last week-end at
Horseshoe Lake, and on the matter
being investigated by Constable Davis
of the Provincial police, it was found
the cattle had unearthed some dynamite which had been buried in the
sand on the shore, and chewed some
of it, which caused their deaths.
Mrs. W. Rothwell, of Wardner, has
been named by the provincial government to act as a judge of the
women's sections at the fall fairs on '
the Okanagan district circuit, which
will be held some time nevt month.
Mrs. Rothwell was last year one of
the judges at the Cranbiook fan. as
well a> at the other fairs in the Kootenay district.
Twice within a week the fire brigade was called to the unoccupied
land just across ihe track on the way
to the hospital, where It was found
there was a small fire In the brush
and sawdust there. On Monday evening they made one trip there, and
Wednesday morning were again -ailed to the same  location.
Motorists intending crossing the
line at Roosvllle aro warned to report
to the American customs and immigration authorities at Newgate under
penalty of confiscation of tlieir car
and a $100 fine, The road to Newgate is something awful for five or
six miles this side of the line and
the government should take steps to
have ii gravelled. While it ia just
as bad on the American side it would
be a very good tourist advertisement
for this country if departing travellers could say thai just as soon ns

R. Clark, publisher of thc High
River Times. High River, Alta., accompanied by his son nnd Mr. McGregor, a member i'f the High School
staff tin iv. passed through Cranbrook
on Tuesday on their way back from
a three or four weeks' motor tour at
the coast. Mr. Clark called at the
Herald office to pay n fraternal visit
and says during the time he has been
away. h. has covered close on to three
thousand miles. He expects to go
back to Alberta and find conditions
good there on account of the big
crop which will be harvested In that

quite a few western newspapermen
are learning of the attractions of
the coast as a holiday centre for in
the past month, three or four have
passed through and dropped in at
the Herald office- Uj exchange a few
minutes' greeting.
Undoubtedly the best circus show
that has visited Cranbrok in recent
years, the Sails-Kioto company, made
a good name frr themselves here last
Friday, even without the elephants,
which had to be withdrawn from the
program, owing to the infractous behaviour, and the fact that some of
them were at large. The program
presented was full of all kinds of
thrills and pretty spectacles, and it
must be said that ew rything was
top-notch. The acrobats and aerial-
ists had a prominent part in the program, and took the popular fancy
with their splendid performances.
The wild animals which were shown
did their turns well, and the horses
particularly took the popular fancy,
embracing a fine collection of well-
kept and well-trained animals that
excited the admiration of every lover
of horseflesh. Poodles Hannaford,
English riding comedian, seemed to
live well up to his reputation, constituting a big item in the program,
and one of the most acceptable parts
of it Owing to the rampaging of
their elephants the circus was compelled to stay over here most of

on the matter.
Mr. II. II. Stevens (Centre Vaneon-
ver): Mr. Speaker, I certainly appreciate the brevity of my lum. friend's
Address. As 1 followed him closely 1
think one might say that he was conscious that there hud been serious
dereliction of duty on the part of public men, and be entered a plea, coming,
I am sure, from the kindness of his
hearti that the House aud the public
should deal leniently with those wbo
may have been guilty of some offence.
As to lhe goodness of his heart 1
nm sure we all agree, On tlie other
hand, .Mr, Speaker, I think at limes
we have a duty to perform when it is
wise not to consult so much the heart
ns it is to consult what is right and
what is fair to the country.
Charge!   Amply   Justified
On February 2, last, 1 addressed
the House charging maladministration
of the Customs and Excise department, whereupon the House appointed
i special committee to hold nn invest-
galiou, or rather more correctly
• peaking to investigate the administration of the Customs aad Excise
department. For over four months,
that investigation has been carried
on and the report now offered to the
House for its consideration represents
the findings and recommendations of
the committee. 1 feel, Sir, thnt for the
jtand I then took I am now warranted
n claiming absolute vindication; the
.barges have been amply justified and
:i stale of affairs has been revealed
which demands the stern nttention
f this House.
Before proceeding, I wish to pay
tribute to Mr. R. P. Sparks and his
issoclates whose untiring efforts dur-
ng the two years preceding the open-
.ng of the investigation contributed
u largely to bringing to the attention
if the government these serious alms's. Canada owes much to Mr. Sparks
for his devotion to the tusk and his
great public service, He and his associates for eighteen months acted
with impartiality and without political
bias. It was only when it became
abundantly clear that the government
did not intend to act that Mr. Sparks
appealed to me to secure for him i
public inquiry. The task was not i
simple one, ami entailed much anxiety
and labour. I had hoped that with the
presentation of the report my work
would have been finished. However,
such is not the case, and I have one
other duty to perform, which I cannot
allow to remain undone. It is never
a pleasant task to attack those with
whom one is in constant contact. One's
motives will no doubt be misjudged
and nttacked. Nevertheless, as the
one responsible for the launching of
this inquiry, it is my duty to finish
it to the last detail.
Report   Lacked One Eisential
During tho opening weeks of tbe
investigation, there were some clashes
of opinion, but latterly the members
at the committee worked in comparative harmony, and. as the report indicates, sought earnestly to produce
to the House some constructive and
remedial measure.1!.
Tlie chairman the bon. member for
St. Henri I Mr. Paul Mercier), one of
the younger members of the House,
had a difficult and onerous duty to
perform. He presided over each and
all of the lift sittings of the commit-
tee.jind 1 trust that the experience he
has had and the knowledge he has
gained will do much lo equip him for
larger fields of service and usefulness
to the state.
With the report I am in accord with
one reservation, namely, the failure
of the committee to report a finding
on the evidence referring to the conduct of the ministry. Its neglect to
do so, if not now corrected by the
House, indicates u likely continuance
i f those  practices which so largely

Wilh Full Knowlndtre of Premier
I pause here to emphasize this

Minister and hU .associates of the
roneral condition of the department
for many months, indeed I think I am
safe in saying for a year before this
investigation started. I will read certain extracts from (lie evidence. For
instance I have under my hand a letter
written by Mr. Sparks to the Right
Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King. Prime
Minister of Canada, under date of
February -1, 1925, just a year lacking
two days before I made my statement
in the House anil more than a year
before the investigation started. 1 will
not read the whole letter, but I will
rend a couple o* extracts:

Then there is a long recital of cer-
tnln specific instnnces. The letter eon-
■hides with this paragraph:

On the 21st February this wns u
lowed bv another letter dealing with
the acquittal of the notorious Bisailli n
in Quebec. This letter is addressed by
Mr. Sparks, as chairman of this businessmen's organization, to the Prime
Minister:
Liberal Government's Inaction
"The acquittal by the Quebec courts
nf J. E. A. HisaiUon, the chief preventive officer at Montreal, who was
charged with conspiracy, creates a
new situation'in reference to tho prevention of smuggling, i think you
should be in possession of certain in
formation which we have in reference
to this mailer, as ho is the key to thc
whole smuggling situation."
"Might 1 again repeat what I think
1 have said to you boforo that, from
the standpoint of loss uf rovenuo, I
ibink the smuggling business is second
only to the loss occasioned from tho
operation of tho Canadian National
railways."
Warning tho Prime Minister, urging
him in conforonco, confirmed by lol
tor, of tho necessity of changes nnd
remedial measures. On Pobruarj   '"
there is a letter Btntlng:
•'After four months' Invosti] il ■

inonili by nn energetic policy on bi

Whlch wero given by this House,
endorsed by this side.
—90 per cent, of the Bniuggling could
ultimately be prevented. Mighl l further express the opinion that smug
gling Is increasing at an alarming
rate, rather than decreasing, ns the
minister states."
Thus even in February it wai
brought to the attention of the minister and his colleagues that these were
the facts and it was pointed out that
the responsible minister at the time
was neglecting his duties In thnt .•■ -
speck The letter goes on:
Biaaillon Condoned
"I took  up with the Minister of
Customs the question of the continuation of Mr. Bisaillon as chief preventive officer at Montreal. I pointed out I
that the business community had lost ;
confidence   in   Mr.   Bisaillon.   I   had |
with me  nt that time a  number of |
reports on this man, one of which  1 I
read to the minister."
And ao forth. On Marcli -JO, 1925,
there was a letter reviewing the situation at length and supplying tlie
Prime Minister with a tabulated list of
the offences of this individual. The reason I mention this is because around
him at the time as chief preventive
officer at Montreal, which was the
pivotal point then, centred the weakness of tlie department. This letter
addressed tn the Prime Minister on
March 20, 1925, reads:
"In reference to the case of Bisuil-
lon, there are certain facts, some of
which are set out below which form
a part of the public records and whicli.
if they are not already known to the
Minister of Customs and Kxcise, c u-
firmation nf them can easily be obtained. Iu our opinion these facts of
themselves furnish sufficient evidence
to warrant the immediate dismissal
of Bisaillon."
Then it recites the case of Ilex vs.
Lotier, the Trembly barge case and
a number of . thers. Then we have Uie1
following paragraph:
"We would respectfully submit thai
the facts as above set out. together
with information conveyed to you in
a confidential memorandum, are sufficient of themselves to call for th
man's dismissal, and, over and above
all this, is the fact that this man has
lost the confidence of the business
community of Montreal nnd. as a consequence, his usefulness is at an end."
This was acknowledged by a letter
dated April 10, 1925, and addressed
to Mr. Sparks.  Trom    Mr.     K.    ■
Lemalre, Clerk of the Privy Council,
in the following words:
Dear Sir:
"l am, by direction of the Right,
Hon. the Prime Minister, to acknowledge your letter of the 20th instanl

Toronto, but arrived at Sarnia on December 18, and the contents were described a? lumber when the car got
to Sarnia for diversion to Port Huron.
1 cite these three cases, Mr. Speaker, for the purpose of showing that
in the export of this liquor by the
Dominion Distillers, who were acting
under a special permit from the minister, a permit, I contend, that was
granted contrary to the law and in
an enlargement of his powers—these
three cars never reached the shipping

in Ontario. These various findings

Iraw attention to t us, that this Idle

cords this vessel wns shown "empty"

inii not going to deal with them, be
cause I think the House is in generc
agreement with regard to them. I do
not think there Is any question as to
their desirability; 1 think they will
be accepted without question, The
recommendations, bowever, regarding
further investigation nnd the prosecution of those already shown to have
violated the law, are of paramount
importance to the House. It |a equally
necessary that the House should be
certain that those who are entrusted
with this duty are untrammelled by
any previous entanglements with
those who are to be prosecuted,    I
pause, Mr. Speaker, to emphasize that
point. I say to the House there are
two things of paramount Importance:
First, thai further Investigation an.I
nrosecutions should be vigorously followed up; and secondly, .his House
ought to Ik.' certain thai '.hos-J to
whom it entrusts this Important :ask
are untrammelled by previous entanglements with those whom ihey
are called upon to prosecute.
Extensive and .startling as the disclosures have been, it is well for the
House to realize that neither the audit
nor the investigation covered more
than a small portion of lhe area that
ought to be examined. I wan', lhal
point lo be horne in on the minds of
non. gentlemen. The way the committee proceeded it would have taken ih
probably two years to hnve covered
the ground necessary and then it
could not hnve been done thoroughly.
The careful examination of other
sections of the Dominion will call for
*i sensitive appreciation of what is
lue to the state, as well as a fearless
nut Impartial application of the law.
Govt.    Compromises   On    CUinis
There are throe major prosecutions
' . he undertaken. First, the Gaunt
uer second, the Dominion Distillers,
-d third, the group of companies at
'oek Island. There are others, many
thors, Imt these three cases ought
0 be and must be taken very serious-
v. Now regarding the (Jaunt case,
ilrendy this government, through the
'"ion of the present    Minister    of
Murine, while acting as Minister of
i'usloms last fall, has committed itself to a settlement of tlie Gaunt case
for $;i,4t>0, covering a claim which
with penalties should produce $"i8,()00.
1 am not saying, Mr. Speaker, that
the $58,000 can be recovered. Hut I am
within my right in saying this—that
most eminent counsel, one who had
given the subject most intimate study
as a lawyer advised me that he
thought there wns a very excellent
case for prosecution. As a layman, and
one who nlso gave the matter intimate
study, I claim that as a matter of
right and equity the $".8,000 is due
to the state and the case ought to be
prosecuted. But what chance is there
governmenl excused 'hem and allowed
■'■■.■in • i come in because a bootlegger
-aid be had landed his goods in Buffalo, and there was never a hade "''
ividencc to support his word. In thai
case which involved over half a mil-
illan tin- company must be
prosecuted. These multi-millionaires,
these unscrupulous bootleggers, wlio
encouraged poorer men to do the dirty
work of their business and then posed
befon '.he public of their respective
cities as benefactors wit); money of
which the public, treasury of this
country had been defrauded, must be
prosecuted.
I prop se now, Mr. Speaker, to examine the chances 0f a vigorous prosecution of this gang by my bou.
friend. This group consists of several
intimately associated concerns with
interlocking directorates. All of these
concerns practise brazen-faced boot'
legging of liquor into the United
State- a- iheir chief business. Tha'.
is their business and nothing else,
and as the report indicates there is
"a strong presumption that some portion id the liquor so shipped and cleared finds it-; way back into Canada
for consumption and pay- no es-
,'isc or cust'Uiis duty. Tio- eoncecrns
are: Dominion Distillers Products Co.
Ltd. W, George Limited: W. J.
Hushbrn; the George Imporl ami r\-
port Co. Ltd.; the St. George Import
and Export Co., together with certain
other entanglements in the way of
steamship companies and so on. They
carried on operations and then let
llii- company go bankrupt when its
usefulness was done.
Mr. WOODSWORTH : The hon.
gentleman Is describing certain practices, Are these practices limited to
Rock Island and the Great Lakes, or
was then- any evkh nee to show that
thev wero prevalent in other parts
of the I).•minion as well?
Only   Touchini;    thr    Frini;r
Mr. STEVENS: I hav,. tried at
least three times to explain, and I
am most unfortunate in my expression if my lum. friend has not grasped
the point, that this investigation has
onlv touched the fringe of the ground
to he covered. 1 also said to my hon.
friend a moment ago, if he will recall
lhat the practice regarding this liquor
whicli we are talking of now was prevalent on the Atlantic, on tlie Pacific
and    on    the   Cleat    Lake-.   There   is
no  question  about   it.  It   is  general
throughout the whole length of the
country, bul the investigation ••( four
months and a half, an experience that
I do not think any member nf the
committee wants to repeat, uncovered
only certain limited areas. And regarding Rock Island, I want to savin justice to the Roek Island people I
think it is perhaps there more pro-
noiineei! than anywhere I know of.
It exists also at Windsor and Niagara,
and perhaps at "ther place-, but at
these two points 1 suspect the condition is not very much better.
Now then 1 want to proceed, Gregory George seems to be the chief
executive head of this group of com-
pauie-. He appeared before the committee during the early days of tiie
Investigation, and after perjuring himself left for Kurope taking with him
all the vital records of this group of
companies. In spite nf liis evasion and
of the loss id' vital records, the auditors have uncovered ample evidence to
warrant a prosecution of these people
for the return to tbe treasury of a
million dollars of revenue.

Speaker, who bought from the minister,—who must now prosecute him—
this investigation reopened the matter,
of $3,400 for thi.s $58,000 claim?
Aiaociatcs  of  Late   Minister
Now, I turn to the Rock Island
ases. In regard to the Rock Island
companies,—anil I may say there are
probably about fifteen companies involved in this group—we know that
the present Minister of Customs and
Excise (Mr. Boivin) represents a
constituency in that neighborhood,
and is the intimate associate of some
of the chief offenders. Now this is
where some of my hon. friends will,
perhaps, feel a little touchy. They may
suggest, as my good friend the chairman so strongly pleaded a moment
ago, that a minister should not be
chided unduly for giving away to the
mportunities of his constituents. That
is a kindly spirit, but I want to say
to the House that In the face of these
disclosures it is a spirit that will ruin
Canada, it is a spirit that will degrade
the public life of this Dominion; and
I say further that it was just that
buccaneering spirit of the ex-minister
which largely contributed to the
ghastly mess we have in that department at the present time, Now my
hon. friend the present minister, in
his speech of February 2. describes
one of these gentlemen in the following terms, I am quoting from unrevis-
>d Hansard, page 733:
"Mr. Blssonette of Stanstead. a very
1(00(1 fellow, an intimate friend of
mine, and a young gentleman whom
I have met on several occasions both
politically and socially."
And yet. Mr. Speaker, this same
BlSSOnette destroyed hla books and
records, and ignored the summons of
the committee. The auditors reported:
•This company hw produced no
books, except for the year 1926, which
books were written up from another
iet of books which were destroyed.'
Then again the auditors report:
"The amount of duty recoverable
might be determined by the department to be very substantial."
Thev could not determine it. They
could not determine the amount because the records were destroyed and
the man would not come before the
committee. Is the minister to be entrusted with the prosecution nf this
"intimate friend," this "youtnr gentleman," this "very good fellow" as he
describes him?
Must Reach the Higher-Upi
Now let us turn our thoughts for
a moment to the Dominion Distiller?
case. In regard to this case I hold
very strong views not only In connection with the denatured alcohol
which was shipped out of the country
contrary to law, not only in connection with the large sum, the sum of
$700,000 odd. which ought to be paid
into the treasury, hut also because
in connection with the shipments that
this company brought in and landed
somewhere nn the Great Lakes, this
roup, he of the "-missionary" spirit.
who came to Ottawa as a missionary
for this gang. Will the minister dare
tu prosecute Hushion for selling this
alcohol without having paid any excise? He will not. or, if ne entered
action at al! it would be doomed to
failure before its inception. Their defense will rest in act* of the minister
himself.
Allow me. Sir. to review the facts
and let the House judge for Itself:
In the late autumn of 1924 the barge
Tremblay was apprehended by officer? of the Quebec Liquor Commission while in the act of landing liquor
contrary to the laws of Quebec. A
few hour" after this action, a customs
officer, Duval, a mere tool of Bullion, appeared on the scene and seized
the vessel and the liquor in the name
of the customs of Canada.
Minister    Sanctions    Sale
The alcohol, some 16,000 gallons
originally 24,000 gallons, was then
placed in the king's bond at Montreal
and remained there until December
1925. During the autumn of 1926,
Mr. Wilson, the chief preventive officer, wrote to a numher of firms for
bids for this alcohol. He received some
offers which were unsatisfactory and
rontinued his efforts to make a sale
'.n a regular and proper manner, a?
was his duty and he carried thai duty
mt faithfully and well. During De-
ember 1925 the minister opened pri-
ate negotiations with W. J. Hushion,
\\ M,P„ who, according to hii owe
evldi nre, wos acting as a ml* don
iry" for thc notorious Cooper-George
gang. During December, the minister
il ied a private sale of the alcohol
tn the Dominion Distillers tor 36 cents
a gallon. The customs law declares
that all seized goods should he sold
il : ot less than duty paid val*ie, whl :h
a thi.* Instance would equal |10.6fi per
gallon, instead of Sfi ce,lt» per
itherwise it would he condemned to he
lestroyed.
That there is a large market for
this alcohol within the l.uv, i?. evidenced by the reports of the Quebec Liquor
Commission, which shwed that they
handled at a price of .jl-LV. per gal-
ion. 382,000 gallons in 1923, 359,000
gallons in 1924, 31"»,00(( gallons in
1925; also it U in evidence tliat the
department, when untrammelled by
ministerial i^tcrfoveinx1, had on a
previous occasion snld approximately
T.ilild gallons at Slo.i'-ll per gallon.
An hon. MEMBER: Duty paid?
Mr. STEVENS! Yes. duty paid. I
am coming to that point. I deal with
the duly paid phase at once.
