not necessary to bo so moan
that your mother would bu

thiug from your salary. But it ia
necessary to use n little judgment
nud common sense in your expenditures, instead of acting iiko ;i

the young fellow who is getting
ten dollars a week, wants to live
like the fellow who is getting
twenty. He spends twenty-live

The Growth of Cranbrook Hakes It
Waterworks   and   Electric   Light
"would Pay Rti^nuig
Easy, but Expensive.
The damage suit brought by the
man Savage against Gfcnry & Doyle
was thrown out of court at the
Nelson assizes last week, without
any testimony being given by the
defence. Tt was an easy victory
for Geary & Doyle, but still au
expensive one, as they were compelled to prepare for a defense.
whieh is an expensive proposition,
Lawyers should be sure of their
ground before consenting to involve reputable people inexpensive
' litigation. Such a procedure
makes any man tlie victim of an
individual who fancies he has a
I grievance.
The growth of Crnnbrook lias
revived the interest in tie incorporation movement, and flu* sentiment is growing stronger each
month. The town lias now readied that stage where various improvements are necessary, mul they
cannot lie secured except by incorporation. Waterworks are now an
absolute necessity, both fordoiues-
tic consumption and tire prelection.
A system of drainage is also a crying need, uud this cannot be had
until the town is incorporated. To
place the town on n business basis
after incorporation, it will be
necessary to issue ilelientures of a
sufficient amount to make the improvements required. The electric
light and telephone plant should
also bu purchased by the municipality. The Herald favors this for
tin* liest reasons, It believes that
with the right man for mayor, and a
conservative, business like council,
the electric light, telephone and
waterworks will give the town sufficient revenue to meet the running
expenses, of the town, so that a
moderate levy to provide for n sinking fund nnd interest on the debentures would be all that is necessary. There is no better advertisement for a town thun modern
improvements uud a low tax levy,
and Cranbrook has the opportunity
of giving a practical illustration of
this fact.
The only real stumbling block
in tho way of incorporation ut this
time, is the lurge amount of unoccupied i roperty in the town owned
by lhe C. P. R. Naturally that
company hesitates to place itself
in a position wh re it could lie
mulcted for heavy tuxes by u Council for the benefit of others. But
this feature, it would seem, could
be easily arranged. The O, P. R.
has large iuterests here. It is
anxious to see Craiilirook progress,
and any consideration shown the
company in the way of relief ou
the taxation of its vast property
interests would undoubtedly meet
with substantial recognition by an
increase in its industrial enterprises as i oa litions would warrant,
There is no question that Cruubrook should have incorporation.
The importance of the place, the
importance of her commercial
growth, and the rapid increase in
population makes it absolutely
necessary for tliis step to be taken,
and that too. as soon as a bill can
be introduced and pissed by the
Back Prom a Sad Mission.
Fred Dnmont returned Sunday
from Three Rivers, Quebec, where
ho went with the remains of Joseph
Oulett, the unfortunate man who
met his death by lining run over
by the cars at Sirdar a few weeks
ago, He says that the family expressed themselves as very thankful to General Superintend Jamieson and Superintendent Taylor
for tlieir kindness throughout the
entire trouble, nnd promptness in
arranging for sending tho remains
home in care of Mr. Dnmont. The
family also felt deeply gratified to
Mr. Dumont for his kindly services
and before! he left wrote him n letter stating that they fully appreciated what lu? had done for their
unfortunate son aud husband, and
that, although the burden of sorrow
was a heavy one, the loss they had
sustained did not prevent them
fiom appreciating his care aud
kindness when it waa needed, and
his thoughtful eourteuos after he
hml reached their home with the
remains of their beloved son.
Mi.rricd. at Christ Church. \VY.|-
jnesdny, October 88th, at H a. m.
• Mis*, Mary A,  Hamilton and .Mr.
Kduar s.  Home.   Hev.   Beacham
Tin* marriage was a quiet one.
only the members of tlie family
nud a few intimate friends lieing
I present. The bride was given
laway by hor brother, .Mr. Wallace
I Hamilton, of Krank. Altn., who officiated as  the   groom*B   best   man.
I Miss Jessie Leitch, au intimate
friend of tlio bride, acted a brides-
maid. A few minutes post8o'clock
the strains of the wedding march
played by Mr. K. Elwell, was the
signal for the entrance of the wedding party. The groom was in
waiting nt tho altar, with the rector, and the impressive marriage
service of the English church soon
united the happy couple as mnn
aad wife. After congratulations
had been offered tlie pnrty entered
carriages and were driven to the
home of the bride's mother, where
au elegant wedding breakfast was
in waiting.
The bride is a great favorite hi
the social circles of Craiilirook and
she lias many friends here and at
Frank, where she formerly lived.
The groom ia bookkeeper for the
East Kootenay Lumber company,
and one of the most popular young
men iu the district. An effort had
been made io keep the coming marriage quiet, but of course it leaked
out, and in consequence there was
a large crowd of friends nt the
station when the west bound train
arrived, which Mr, and Mrs. Home
took for a wedding trip to the
Coast cities. There was laughing
gootl byes, nnd many words of congratulations, und a shower of rice
before the train pulled out. The
bride and groom expect to be gone
ton days or two weeks, and will go
as far as Seattle before thev return.
A Pioneer Preacher.
Rev. James Turner, tho pioneer
Methodist minister ot British Co-
llllllbill, has been in C'riinlirook the
pnst week, nnil on Tuesday night
he lectured to a very appreciative
audience, Sir. Turner knows more
aliout llritisli Columbia and the
North West Territories than probably any man living today. He
was in Calgnry when there was
nothing there but buffalo grasB mill
north wind. He oainped on the
Cranbrook Townsite over 20 years
ago. and that was before this district was known, except as to Wild
llorsegoldnnd Perry Creek placers.
He wus in Nelson before John
Houston, in Revelstoke before Tom
Taylor thought of being a legislator, and in the Curilxto country
when men ate with tlieir knives and
slept under blankets that were
never washed by a Chinaman, He
travelled ahead of civilization with
the bible in one hand and whatever
he could use to the best advantage
in the other, and hus preached the
gosi't-1 of Christ to Indians ami
white men before churches were
built and when choir practices were
u hope of distant future. British
Columbia owes much to Rev. Turner, mid yet it is dollars to doughnuts that nil he has today is the
satisfaction of knowing that he has
done his duty to God and man.

Houston Turned Down.
John Houston, tlu- niember'eleet
frum Nelson, went tu Victoria expecting a portfolio from Premier
McBride. He remained there a
week or mure, and finally received
a note frum Mr. McBride to the
effect that the government could
lu nothing fur him. Naturally
Mr. Houston did not take the tnm-
down kindly. He thought he was
entitled to recognition by the government, on account of the fight
he had mad.-, an.l on account of
the importance uf the town he
represented, Before he left the
coast he is credited with expresa-
ini; himself radically on the situation as fulluws to a newspaper representative at Vancouver:
"The World was wrong in Baying
that I went to Victoria to deliver
my ultimatum to the premier," he
snid in an interview here this after-
jioau. "I didn't I merely mentioned it to him thnt I wanted the
chief commissionership and I fancied 1 ought to get it. You can
say this for me."
The member for Nelson went on
to say that: "I will not lie a member of tin* McBride government.
No. nor of any other government.
You can tell them thnt John Houston is going to go back to Nelaon
ami thnt he is going to close np
business there ami that he is going
to leave British Columbia for good
and for all."
--Why this sudden change?" ho
wus asked.
"I am done: you can put it tbat
f um done. I have worked hard
uml faithfully in this province for
fifteen years. I have been a con.
servative and u loyal, consistent
one. I ditl not go to Victoria, aa
y.'tur paper said, with an ultimatum
to McBride, However, I expected
to lie used at least decently. But
yestenluy I got the dirtiest deal
that ever a whit., man got in tho
province of British Columbia."
"What kind of n cold deck did
they spring on you?" wns the next
natural question,
"That's nil.   I will say no more,"
"Anil ure you going to vote McBride out of office?"
"I have said all that I have to
say for publication,"
"Anil you are surely going to
leave British Columbia?"
"I am."
"Then if yuu are going to leavo
British Columbia, you cannot vote
McBride out of oltice. if you are
out of the province yourself," he
was asked. >
"Hold on: I haven't mentioned
any specific date for my departure
yet. hnve I ?" replied Mr. Houston.
"Oh: yes.   I sec."
"Well, say that's all."
Houston. thc revolutionist,
caught the train for home,

Perry Creek Hydraulic Works. |
Old Town, <>»*t 21: The Perry
Creek Hydraulic company lias made ] '
some import an I changes iu ilu*
management! of its ulfairs, The
camp and saw mill linve been moved from where lirst set Up and pul
ou the Hat opposite the falls. As
much of the Hume has beeu built
as was intended to bo built this
season. There is yot to be built
about 8,000 feet. To complete
tins there is a piece of difficult
engineering to be done. A gulch
hns to lie crossed that will require
1,500 feet of pipe placed in the
form of au inverted syphon. This
gulch is innccessable by wagon
road, and nil material used in the
construction of the syphon will
be carried across l'erry Creek
canyon tm a cable tramway, Two
car lomlsjif   pipe,   .10   inches  in
dinitiator    will   be   needed.       Jack
Thompson has been employed to
manage this part of the work aud
will probaby remain with the company as mine manager.
The cable is on the ground, and
will be placed iu position at once
to convoy the pipe, which will he
hauled from Craubrook after the
lirst tall of snow,
The saw mill will continue flitting lumber us long ns the weather
permits. It is the company's intention to push work to the completion of the Humes and the setting up of mining equipments as
rapidly as possible.

"Hutch" Explains.
Fernie. B. C. Oct,, 21st. LflOll,
Editor Herald. Dear Sir: We
have, for some time past, advertised the town of Coleman as a wide
open town, in the sense tllllt any
business man might buy a lot and
conduct business. We did this in
gootl faith, having every reason to
believe it was so. We now find
that the contract for the sale of
lots discriminates against hotel
keepers and any person engaged in
the liquor traffic. Having advertised tno town iu the way we have,
we feel that it is due.not only to our
clients. Imt to the public iu general
to make this point clear. ' \\e have
tonight wired our resignation lo
the townsite company and only
regret that we have (through no
fault of our own) misled soi f
the people,   though   ffe   have sold
no lots. Vours truly,

Jacobs' Irish Biscuits
We have just received our lourth consignment of
these famous biscuits and cakes. A few months ago
Cranbrook was the only town in the Dominion where
these biscuits could be bought. Now a Toronto
wholesale house has the agency for Ontario, a Win
nipeg house for Manitoba, and a Victoria house for
British Columbia. The representatives of each of
these houses saw the stock in our store and recognizing their superiority over all other biscuits made, domestic or imported, took steps to secure their exclusive
sale in the territory now alloted to them. We are independent of any of these agencies and procure our
stock direct from the factory, where they manufac
turei specially for us after our order is received, not
taken from surplus or possible stale stock, so you can
rely on getting the very best at a price no greater
than what you would have to pay for an inferior
article. J.
Speaking of Irish, one naturally thinks of potatoes.
We don't import IRISH SPUDS, but for our family
trade we get the next best thing, Ashcrofts. Fer a
potato that is good now and will keep and be good
six months hence you can't get it unless you buy the
ASHCROFTS. We speak from experience. We
have other potatoes grown in British Columbia that
wc sell you as cheap as anybody will, and for immediate use they are all right, but for a "keeper" pay a
few more cents and get the ASHCROFTS. We
have a car in transit from the Okanogan (NOT
ASHCROFTS I that if you will leave your order
now we will deliver from the car at $17.00 a ton,
$9.03 for half ton, or 95c for 100 pounds. These potatoes we guaraatee as good as any that are shipped
in with the one exception, Ashcrofts. Note the price
and the guarantee and leave your order so that delivery will be made from the car on its arrival.
China and Glassware
For ordinary use, for wedding presents or Christmas gilts we can surely sell you something that
will please and gratify thc recipient. Call in and sec
our show room. You don't need to buy; you will
tell your friends about the nice things wc have and
by that way advertise our wares.
