The Outlook For Cranbrook Was Never
So Bright.
And Today Her  Prosperity Rests
On a Permanent and Secure Basis.
This Is the fillh spring tbat The Herald editor 1ms bml occasion to Bpeak ol
the past ami future of Ibe district of
South East Kuoteuay, nud tlie town of
Cranbrook, Four fears ago Cranbrook's
past was a brief existence uf a few
months. At that lime there was uo
rinlioiitl and the town itself consisted of
a tew bouses du the main street, and a
limited amount of business. Bul tbe
future was bright, because tbe people
who located here felt confident that
Cranbrook's superior location must necessarily bring with it advantages that
would ultimately result in a satisfactory
growth, both iu population and business,
And this year Tbe Herald takes great
pleasure in announcing that never before
n the history ofthe town has the future
been so bright, and never before bavo
there been s) many evidences of ttie fact
tbat Cranbrook's prosperity rests upon a
solid, substantial basis that gives positive assurance of permanency-
It is true that there are not as many
people seen upon the streets as in the
early days ol construction. That was a
moving population aud not of peitnaueut
benefit to tbe town. Today we have not
less than 1700 to iSuo people with a
large number ot handsome homes, and a
people wbo look upon Cranbiook as
their permanent borne, and are devoting
their energies 10 tbe upbuild! I of the
place. The residential portion *->" tbe
lown has developed at a rapid r%» tbe
past two years, and in consequeucc there
is not a town in tbis large and populous
district that will compaic with Ciau-
brook in this respect. Aud when Tbe
Herald makes this statement it means a
good deal, for there are several prosperous towns in this district that have also
made rapid progress during the past two
And when It comes to the business
bouses one can justly assert Hi.it ihey
have proven a potential factor in spread
ing the fame aud name of Cranbrook
Tbey have kept up with the develop*
meui of like dislrict ami to do ibis have
had to carry stocks that wen* mi usually
large. Hut the policy has paid, and paid
well, since it hu* been the m >aus of extending ihelr trade from Kootenay land
tug ou ibe west, to Frank, Alta., on
tbe easl; from Windermere lo the International boundary line. With a large
trade territory aud a constantly increasing home demand, due to the growing
population, the merchants of Cranbrook
have made most satisfactory progress-
Naturally the c P. R has done much
to advance tbe Interests ofthe town, lu
a way, It is a C. P, R town. Here the
company has iis division for the Crows
Nest branch. Here, also, they have
built shops and this season v.Ill greatly
enlarge their facilities for doing all class
es of railway repairing
Another factor ibal has aided materially is the mill*. Cranbrook bus five,
with a total capacity of over 100,0 W feet
a day. These mills give cm pi ytn *ut 10
a large number of meu 12 months in the
year, and the timber supply is practical
ly unlimited.
Coupled with these adjuncts to pros,
perily, Crnuhrook is sn situated Unit she
receives lhe benefit of llie mining operations east and wesl, north <>-id sou h.
Supplies arc purchased here, niul the
men spend a large portion of their mon
ey in Cranbrook,
Taking   the    various   industries   inio
consideration, there Ii a pemianent Increasing payroll that would insure prosperity to a towu even larger than Cranbrook .
It is no wonder that the people of
Cranbrook feel good over the situation.
They have every reason lo he satisfied.
They are fortunate enough to live In n
town that has always been a good busi
ness point, and one that has a bright and
prosperous future.
Cianbrook is all right.
R. E. Qeaitle Has a Majnllfcent Piste of
Cranbrook has many enterprising
merchant*), and il is 10 the:: i nergy ami
anil intelligence that the town owes
much of tbe prestige VHa* It eu]oys to
day. Amoug the numerous stoies thai
attract lhe attention ol strangers in
town, as well as giving tise lo a feeling
of pride on the part of lhe clllxeUS, is
the drug store of R, K. Beattie. Wheu
Cranbrook was but 11 hope Sod the town
wis naught  ho:  a  prairie  plat ami   lot
stakes, Mr.  beattie opened his store ou
the turner where il now Stands. Theii
it was only hai! as large, aud tlie stock
Hml fixtures weie like any store of that
kind found iu pioneer towns, lint, with
lhe progress ol lhe district and lhe
growth of the town, Mr. Beanie continued to improve his place of business and
Inctease his stock until today he has the
largest and finest drug store in Kast
Kootenay, fitted np iu metropolitan
style, with a stock of drugs, stationery,
toilet articles, leather goods, fishing
tackle aud novelties that will compare
favorably with any drug stote in British
Columbia towns many times the size of
Craubrook. Within the past iwo weeks
he has put In new counters that are artistic iu the extreme, and add very materially to the tasty appearance of the
store. Mr. Beattie believes tu patroniz
ing home industry, and these counters
and show cases were m..de iu Cianbrook
hy G. R. Leask aud finished by Pieper
& Currie. Tbe workmanship wuutd
meet tbe approval of tbe most exacting
und is a practical deuioustrat 011 of the
fact tbat it is better to keep money for
such work at home,
Mr. Beattie has also added a handsome soda fountain which will meet with
a 'hearty reception from the ladies of
Craubrook. He proposes to give this
branch special attention this eason, mid
will endeavor to make it pleasant for
ladies who visit his store lo enjoy a cooling drink during lhe wanner days.
The Masonic Bait Aa bunt to Be
Arrangements Being Made lor s Big Day
On the 24th.
The Cranbrook Turf and Athletic Association bas decided to celebrate May
24, and are making arrangements for a
day of sports on that flute which promises
to be one of the best ol its kind ever held

citizens of Craubrook and district are
particularly invited tu lend their assistance toward making tbe 24th of May a

their power to make things pleasant for
-the different athletic associations and

Blended to devote a good part ofthe
day to sports and games, football, lacrosse and baseball. The management
of affairs is under the direction of committees, who ate energetically setting to
work to make the day u success. Outsiders tell us that we have the finest racing and athletic grounds In British Columbia. Cranbrook Is envied iu this repeat, uud let us bear this fact iu mind
and one and all support our local meeting to be held on May 24th.

Victoria, April 8 —There was another

concluded as a short net. I D
The event of the social season has
gone into history, and the Cranhronk
Masons carry ihe palm. Their dance
given last Tuesday evening was a magnificent social and artistic success, a verdict that is accorded by all who participated ur witnessed the brilliancy of the
scene. The attendance waa just what
those tn charge desired, enough to create
a strong feeling of enlhnsiasm, but not a
Btifficieut number to cause dissatisfaction
by overcrowding. Of course, if the hall
been more commodious, a paean of
thanksgiving would have gone up from
an hundred throats, yet this slight inconvenience was overcome and lost sight of
by the extreme pleasure of tbe occasion.
Willing and artistic hands hud turned
the not overly attractive hall into a vista
of lovliness. U nstghtly walls were
trausfuimed into panels of beauty by a
pleasing combination of draperies, mirrors and pictures, interspersed with
mounted emblems uf the Masonic order.
Long loops of red, white aud blue bunting, entwined with garlands and strands
of evergreen, ihrougb which the electric
light globes hung, completed an artistic
arrangement that reflected great credit
upon these who designed the decorations und did tbe work.
It was 10 o'clock when the strains of
the giand march souuded through the
hall, and the dancers, led hy A. L McDermot and Miss Flossie Magee, M.
Rockendorf and Miss Alice Moffut, went
through the manifold evolutions ot that
inspiring trepsicborean introduction.
From lhat time till after 4 a.m. one
number followed another, until the
Hume, Sweet Home waltz gave warning
that a most successful party was near an
end. Everyone present had a most
enjoyable evening, und the appearance
of the participants was evidence ofthe
progress Cranbrook has made from a
pioneer camp to a metropolitan (own.
The costumes of the ladies were superior
those displayed at any former
entettainuient in Cranbrook, many of
them having been ordered for that
special occasion; while the men, as a
rule, conformed to the regulation mode
for au evening party. The conservatories of Winnipeg aud Nelsou had been
liberally drawn upon for flowers, which
enhanced to a remarkable degree the
beauty of tbe scene,
Messrs. Rookes and Highwarden furnished excellent music for tbe occasion,
and tbeir efforts met with many words
of praise.
The luucb served during the evening
was all that anyone could have asked
for, and the rapidity with which the edibles disappeared was ample evidence of
tbe keen appreciation of those present.
Charles Vollrsth Learn*- uf His Brother's
Death That Way
Charles Vollratb, who came to Cranbrook some weeks ago ami entered the
employ of the Cranbrook Lumber company, is a brother of W. Vollratb, one
of the brave Cauadian* killed iu the
battle at Hart's river March 31. In
conversation with a Herald represeuta
live Mr. Volltath said:
"The first Intimation I had lhat my
brother hail eulisted was on seeing his
name in the list of killed in The Herald
last week. 1 wired my parents at Ann-
strong, ll C, and they Informed me
that their first knowledge ot his enlistment was a dispatch fiom Loid Minto
announcing his death. My brother wan
22 years of age and was au expert hoist -
man and rifle shot and was ambitious to
become a soldier. He wished to go out
with tbe Strathconas but our parents
objected so Btronglythal he did not go."
Mr. Vollratb also said tbat he bad au
older brother wbo went out with the
Stralhconas aud remained in Africa aud
is new serving uuderCol. Baden-Powell.
He also staled that he intended going
with the next contingent. The Voll-
raths come of fighting stock, their
grandfather having served under BlucUel
at the battle of Waterloo and their
father serving in lhe German army tn
the campaigns uf the '70s.
Words of Thanks
The committee in charge desire to
thank Messrs. Small, Hilt, Johnston,
Rogers, Clarke and Hall for their valua'
lue assistance in tbe work of preparation
which contributed so largely to the success of th*: evening.

Although Saturday night is not the best
time for holding meetings of tbis nature,
yet a goodly numher of the craft were
present, including visitors from Fort
Steele and Moyie. After the deputy
grand master had been introduced to

forth words of praise from both the
grand lodge officers for the manner in
which the work was put on, and congratulations 011 the advancement of the

over a year ago.
After the closing of the lodge the

New Han-] Drill for Miners.
W. W. Waite of Colfax, Wash., bas
patented a new hand drill which be bas
on exhibition at Spokane. Mr. Waite
patented the drill about a year ago and
let a c-ntract for their manufacture to
the Jeffery manufacturing company of
Columbus, Ohio, but owing to the
strikes throughout the east be was unable to get them on tbe market last fall
as expected The 6rst carload will arrive in Spokane about May I.
The drill Is unlqoe in many respects.
It consists 0! four four-pound hammers
on Eteel handles about 15 inches In
length attached to a balance wheel
which turns by a crank. At every revolution eft he wheel there are four strokes
of Ihe hammer, thus making it possible
to strike 21- blows a minute with little
exertion. The weight of the drill ia
about 150 pound, which is an imported
fact to be considered where transportation is difficult It ts claimed lhat fl
will do ibe work of from tour to six
men, according to the quality of the
rock. The simplicity of its workings
can perhaps be more readily understood
when it is stated that at every stroke of
the of lhe hammers the drill is turned
and held automatically for the neat
stroke. It has exactly the same movement as a miner makes when swinging
a hammer, with lhe exception of doing
away with the return motion, winch ordinarily consumes about 80 per cent of a
man's energy.

During lhe past two weeks Ihere have
been two or three newspapers in British
Columbia tbat have been compelled
to suspend publication owing to a lack
of sufficient Bupport lu consequence ol
these journalistic deaths, there bus been
a weeping and wailing, and the shedding
of many tears by the sympathetic press
of the province In too many cases of
this kind sympathy is uudeserved, and
tearful ejaculations but lhe material evidence of a pessimistic spirit.
There is too tnmli ol tins kind of
ranting by editor.-; too much of this posing as objects of charity by publishers
of weekly papers; too much of this endeavor to  arouse  Mil- sympathy of the
community to secure a slight addition to
the annual revenue of the office. Such
a procedure is a disgrace and a shame.
A newspaper is no more lhe object of
charity than is a grocery -.lore, a meat
market or a clothing house. Ii is a
straight business proposition, for which
every patron should h ive value
received, uml the publisher of the paper
should occupj ihe same position iu a
town that any other reputable business
man holds, ami maintain lhc dignity of
that position. Thu many publishers
whine around shout their bills, crave
favors when none should he granted,
jump nt an opportunity to play dead
head wheu they should be paying full
price instead of acting the role ot a mendicant ur pub.ic charge.*
Again, there are uewsp ipers published
in towns that would starve an editor to
death if he lived ou corn meal nnd molasses, Men who will insist on tempting
fate in places like that should be given
an interim of iest at New Westminster
until Ihey lind grown stronger in mind
and less venturesome m *-puit.
But the greatest fault of ull lies with
tco many publishers. They will put in
a heterogenous lot of old, out of date
type, publish a pnper the appearance of
which Is enough to make the spirit ot
Gulenburg rise in revolt, print job work
that looks us if it had been designed by
a wood chopper and executed by a coal
heaver, ami then kick because they fail
to get patronage, They will charge the
IocbI merchant one dollar au inch for an
advertisement the composition of which
would give a tu tn the nightmare, and
take some mediclue fake for 20 cenls au
inch wiih -'5 percent of! for commission,
aud the balance to be paid in a roll of
barb wire or printer's ink that is ahsoluti
ly worthless. liiiergy ami brains are um
known quantities around such offices
and the expression of an honest opinion
or the display of manly independence is
unheard of. ll is such papers lha I fail,
simply because they have no right to
live. They are a reproach upon the
craft and a nuisance in a town.
It cosls money to run a country news-
paper. It takes modern type, modem
machinery, modern nn tluu Is, modern
'deas, modern workmen, and unlimited
hustlim;. If 11 lown furnisbesa field foi
a new.sp.iper, and a mhui will he true to
his profession, true to his town, true lo
his merchants, persist in the policy thai
he should furnish just ns good a loiter

Canada, is not likely t() t1L. realized.
It would buve been well for Uuiiada
in many ways if, in the flrsi place,

if soma of those enthusiastic Canadians charged with preparing n

policy adoptod throughout the Dominion which would placo     Canada
ill a belter light before the rending

hopes, however, Were blasted when
the reports cnino from Ottawa uf the

Bridge lor Marysville.
Ma yiylUe Tribune.
One of the things tbat will help 10
build np Marysville Is the proposed
bridge across the St, Mary's river.
The Importance of thla public work
cannot possibly be over estimated
The distance, that not only the
people of Marysvllle but the Perry-
creek people also, have to travel to
reach the railroad, as things are at
present Is out of all rear-on ai.d the
people of tbis district sbou'd use every
fair meana to Induce the government to
Inaugurate work on the bridge at the
earliest possible mr incut.
The people of Marysvllle driving to
Cranbrook have, at present, to go by
way of tbe St, Kugene mission so as to
cross the river, the distance being
twenty one miles where as it the bridge
were built twelve milea would be all
that would have to be travelled. The
people of Perry Creek have at present
10   go   to   lhc inissii'ii also to get   to
arysvllle, whereas four to six miles
would be the distance If tbe bridge
were built.
We are well aware of the fact that
the government Is a great body and
lhat "great bodies move slowly," but
the urgency of thla case should make
them "get a move on" for once. Tbe
people of this district pay their taxes
and tbey have a right to air their views
and to insist on a reasonable amount
of recognition on the part of the government,
The next thing wanted, and It ahould
be constructed at the same time as tbe
bridge, Is the short road from Cranbrook to Perry Creek. Lm fall the
proposed route of ibis road was walked
over by several Cracbrock citizens and
a road not more than six miles In length
could be built at no great expense from
Cranbmok to Six Mile creek.
These matters of pull.c woiks which
are necessary sin uld be mat.era of
Interest to  all   good citizens and  we

We have often wondered why a $30
cleik in railroad ntfice persists in assuming lhe importance ot a Rockefeller
or u V'auHome wheu an outsider asks '
some civil question in a civil mitiner.
Every railroad bas them, and the C P
R, is not free from lh?* plague, No man
has escaped from this pestiferous cuts,
for he will be found every now and then
iu uearly eveiy town, bul fortunately
they do uot remain long. We would
like to bs president   of a  railroad* ju-t
thirty days, We would put uu an old |
suit of clothes und travel from station
to station asking civil questions from
these dude clerks. Rvery time one got !
gay be would be tired liistatiler; and ev
cry lime one acted like a geuilemun Slid
seemed to appreciate the fact that the
company paid him to be civil 10 lhe
public, his name would he marked for

Frank Dickinson, the Inimitable
knight id the raz ir, is, as Josh Hillings
says '"an auiooziu' cu-s." He has a razor of immense size with nicks iu it
like lhe teeth ol a circular saw. Not
long ago he hail a man iu the chair wbo
bad been working in the bush for some
time aud was getting his lirst .-have in
several months. Frank lathered up his
face and the n liking u p isltion in trout
of his patton so that his hands could ba
plainly seen, pulled out the nicked razor
and with a face like Solomon tested Ihe
teeth with a light touch of his fingers
and then began lhe honing process. Tlie
man in the chair caught one glimpse of
tbat razor aud with a jell of fright jumped from the chair, grabbed his hat and
storied for the door, saying bs he ran,

Why is it that ihe peuple of Craubrook
persist in being ultra-fustiionable regarding the time of going to dances. They
will dnwdle around until nearly ten
o'clock and then insist ou dancing until two or three o'clock to finish the program That ia nil right for a man who
has nothing to do Iiut sleep the next
day, but there are mighty few of that
brand in Ci&nbiook A little belter
judgment ou this matter would make a
vast improvement.

For some unaccountable reason the
idea prevails that the Old Man is opposed to ping puig. This is a mistake.
We are infatuated with the game. It is
one that requires skill, bruins aud energy. A man who is opposed to ping
pong should not be tolerated in a civil-
ized community. It is b great game.
Now that ought to satisfy all of our
ping pong critics.
