become publl-o property thai the t'a-
uudiuii Simduiiii Works aie proposing
io treble Lbe OApnolty of its reflnery.
For a yeiir past there htui
lieeii siaiiduift one additional liiiildiiif;
wliitli tan be utilized for this iuldi-
i i.iiial refinery.
Tliere i.s only a limited market lor
lead and ils pioducU iu Canada. Tbe
Canadian production is iu excess of
this market. Tlie market of th*?
United States is shut off because oi
a duly of $2.Vi_ pcr ton ou all lead
Imported, The London market Is so
low as to be unprofitable. The Canadian market is the London market
plus the freight to and tro across the
Atlantic. Canadian lead then sought
tbe outlet of the Orient. Here it
found Australian lead an active com-
pOtitor. However, by pooling issues,
and not cutting prices, Canadian lead
got a small share of tbe market. The
Oriental market is governed by Uie
London prices plus the sea carriage.
As In nli Australia and Canada are
closer io the Orient than is Great
Britain, these colonics have an art-
vani-agc over tlie mother country to
lhe extent ol the difference in their
favor of ibe sea carriage.
The Canadian Smelting Works, allied, if separated from the Canadian
Pacific, practically controls, greatly
through the indefatigable energy of
its manager, lhe Canadian lead market. It gets the top prices pi the
Canadian market. Tbe surplus, excluding llie Oriental supply, then is
sold at London prices. Hy shipping
much oi the lead to lie refined lo tlie
Selby works in San Francisco, 1(1
pel* cent of it i.s allowed lo be sold
on the United States market without
incurring the S2.12-J import duty. The
remainder goes direct lo the Orient.
In this way the market lias been
held. The Ilall mines smelter today
is smelting more lead than is Trail,
but its product is being bandied by
the Canadian Smeliiug Works. All
this is very nice, but into lhe compact butts, in the rudest manner, lhe
Marysville smelter with a capacity
about equal lo that of tlie Hall mirks
or of Trail.
If .Marysville lias to market its
lead iu Canada—and there is nothing
io prevent it—there will be at least
double tbe quantity o( lead on the
market here than for which there exists a demand. Hence the tendency
would be to sell down to the Loudon
[nice, lit other words the price of
the surplus would govern the price of
tin- whole supply.
Now, the cost of marketing and re-
Rnlng in London is about t3.-l.ftt). The
smelters charge the mine* WO only.
This is because they are- getting the
advantage of the higher Canadian
price Hehee, if the Canadian prices
were lowered through open c-ompetlon
the smelters would be forced to
charge the higher rule mentioned.
This would have the effect ol cut-tailing tho output,
Tims ii is demonstrated that the Canadian market must tie controlled,
This can only be dune by taking the-
Marysville product off the hands ol*
ihat company. Tlie trust Is thus In-
dlcaWxl.
llut ihis mily lands the Canadian
Smelting works on the other horn n(
lhe dilemma—over production.
The only available market Is the
Orient The poo) will have to be
broken, In the open competition
which ensues llie winner is likely to
prove lo lie Canada. The sea hull
[torn Canada lo the Orient Is slightly
slioiirr Mian the haul from Australia
to China. The chief lead port is
Switlow, 140 miles north of Hotig-
kon.it. In this neighborhood, one' of
ihe most densely populated in China,
is produced nearly all lhe pewter used
by 'liiii,(iii<i,iiiio of people and much of
the lea. lead. The Australians have a
line of steamers which run directly
to Swalow, not transshipping at
Hongkong, as do the Canadians. Australia has this advantage, which,
however, can easily Iks equalized.
The Canadians are enjoying an in*
creasing trade with the Orient, espe*

YANKEES ARE COMING,
Winnipeg, April 34.—Theodore M.
Kna-ppen, secretary of the Western
Canada Immigration society, is in
the city enroute Irom a trip through
lhe western and middle states. 1'e
says of the season's immigration to
Canada that tbe trips so far indicate
a larger movement than last year.
The demand for western Canada lauds
is greater today than two years ago,
and all active land men in the stains
are as busy as tbey can be, hardly a
day passing without a targe oai'ty
leaving on a lour of inspection of
Alberta, Assiniboia or Manitoba
lands. Winnipeg people do not notice
tbe movement as most ol the United
Slntes people cross the border ut
Portal, striking the heart of ibh ig-
ricultural districts there and striking
out from that point in all directions.
It is nol uncommon to see the So.i
train pull out oi St. I'uul with nar-
ties of from 30U to 500 settlers on it.
These Immigrants are all well to ;'i>,
many of them having bank accounts
figuring from $1.1,(1(111 to $20,000, ,vho
have accumulated their little idle
through thrift and careful living.
Another very interest ing aspect of
tlie migrating farmers is the iong
freight train containing their goods
and chattels with a passenger coach
attached, where the owners of these
possessions live while traveling over
lhc road.
Mr. Knappcn said that a short lime
ago on a visit to Iowa he learned
Uial the population of Iowa has decreased remarkably In the past live
The price of lands Is so very high
there that it Is a temptation to the
farmers in dispose of what land they
have and emigrate to western Canada, where tbey can get lands for one-
tenth of what tbey sold their own
lands for.
The editor of the Wallace Fanner
at DesMoines, Iowa, told Mr. Knappcn of a farmer who had acquire tlie
farms ot- 33 residents in bis district,
cially an import trade. Cheap labor'ftIwi of another who had bought up

GEO. A. SLATER'S SHOES
VICTIM   OF   BLACKMAILERS
The CalKarj Herald of the Jiiul
prints the following dispatch:
Toronto, April 22.-Ttre World, Mio
dally ptiblislwd by Vi. F. Maeleun, Al.
P., says; Clifford Sifton became iu-
iiilved in a scandal. This scandal l,e-
cariie pulilic property and Siltiin's iul-
leasiies lold him ,i settlement
must be arranged. Laurior and uro.n-
ini'llt reiiresclltatives of Uie literalc'iy
ivoro parties lo this settlement and a
large sum „! niuney was involved. It
ivas also arranged that Sifton should
retire on accouiil of ill health.
Sifton, however, went south and lhe
autonomy bill was Introduced in Ins
absence. Silton Immediate!)' hastened
northward and after an unpleas.t'ii
conference with Sir Wilirid I.aurier
lie resign.*!.
Then the plotters gol lo wmk.
The Calgary Eye Opener pulilis'.ird
Hie whole story of the scandal including names, dales and terms ol settlement. Many Kye Openers were -eiit
to Ottawa. A New York newspainr
published tlie story and Silton was
given to understand that this .vas
only the beginning ol publicity to be
given his indiscretion.
He saw that his choice was be-tween
surrender and a blackened reputation.
He surrendered.
The World says it gives the story
as a matter of "duty to the public,"
and that, Sifton's action in ac.ptisg
the eumproilllse under the whip ul tbe
blackmailers is that of the "husband
and lather terrorized by unscrupulous
conspirators."
FOOTBALL
Town Team a, C. P. R. Shops 1.
I'he result ol the first game was
never in doubt, tbe Brigade scoring
tlie three goals Without effort. iTw
Office team sorely missed' the sel'vici'5
of Ur. Bishop, Ed tlbiiie ahd O. Walsh
and without this strong ttto Wtfrn
unable lo cope with the stronger piby
ot the brigade.
The teams lined up as follows:
Kire Brigade-Goal, Fink; backs, At-
iridge, Bennett; half backs, Greer,
Captain Starke and Johnstone; forwards, Graham, Staples, llill, Ilaiii-s
and Nicholson.
C. P. It. Offices-Goal, Merciir;
backs, Pat ton, Patmore; half backs,
Henderson, Kyckman, Stewart; ft r"
wards, Klwell, Gallon, Captaib. Wilson, Kelly, Belmont,
Kire Brigade 3, C. P. R. Offices 0.
The second event between the "Shops
and the Town, whieh was the ftwt
league game of the season, was a
Ireat to tlie strong, contingent of
football enthusiasts who were oulobk-
being well contested by both
teams. It is unfortunate, how j ver,
that owing to a misuiiderstandini*, of
an important rule of the game the
Shops team were successful iu pv-
testing one ot tbe goals scored agnnst
them, the match therefore does lot
count and very likely will bave to
he played over again. The cill.'if
strength of the Town team lies in
their consistent combination work and
from a spectator's standpoint is very
pleasing.
Following is the lineup of the *v.o
teams:
Town Team—Goal—Moore, backs, S.
Baldwin, Wilkinson; half backs, i<Vr-
guson, Captain Baldwin, Turn'jill,
forwards, O'Neill, Chalmers, \Vor-
lidge, Kdmonson, McLaren.
C. P. IL Shops—Goal, Dow.son
backs, Wbebell, Sarrell; half bad-trf,
Abbott, Long Seville: forwards,
Coldwcll, Brooks, Bathie, Captain
Sbunkland, Sneddon.
NOTES ON THE GAMES.
The Town team are the first lo np-
pear in complete uniform, the red and
white showing up very Well.
Wbebell, of the C. P. R. Shops wps
invincible and saved his goal time and'
again, ■  I
The next in order ol-merit for the1
Shops is Long. He was always inl
evidence. \
It would be hard to particularize
the "good ones" in the Town team. 1
Tliey are a capable lot but Turnbull
and O'Neill Were prominent in several I
brilliant plays. i

EDITORIAL NOTES,
The debate on the school question
seems to be wllhoul end, and during
the dobato many members talk more
lor political effect than far lho good
of ihe Dominion, Extremists ue
dangorous at any stage of lhe nam1,
and when the suhjeel ol religion is
the mooted question they generally go
to the limit. Al! worshippers of Ood
are entitled to respect, and no man
living will ever know which is the
riglu religion until he Is doad, anil
then it will lie Impossible for liim to
communicate his knowledge to those
he has left behind. Mo long as a ie-
Ilgton teaches a betterment ot the
moral condition of humanity, so long
is it entitled to the kindly considerations of the people No church has
tbe monopoly on the heavenly route
and since religion affects the Individual himself, that Individual has the
right to choose his spiritual course
without question.

Moyie, after several struggles, has
finally succeeded In reorganizing its
board of trade. Good lor Moyie.
Cranbiook might well do something
along this line. After holding a .iieet-
ing a few months ago, attended hy
eight or tn people, tossing around a j
number of boquets and electing ufli-j
eera lor tlie ensuing year, it adjo irn-
guilty parents in Cranbrook.
Dr. Hlrsch says that children shoud
be well supplied with fairy tales, and
a Denver paper adds that many of
them an1 hy listening to papa's explanations to mamma at the breakfast
table as lo what kept him out
late the night before.
Kaster services aud bonnets were
more •attractive than ever in Cranbrook this year.

new sidewalk on Armstrong avenue

There has been a great deal ol ise-
Icss discussion ahout accepting $100,-

the baldhcuded blllonolre will send a
gift of $100,000 to the Old Man, he
will never have bis feelings hurt Ly

During the past week some cold

minds and barbaric instincts have
been throwing "hokey-pokey" on
harmless dogs about town simply lo
hear lbe poor, tortured animals yelp
in pain, ll there is a law that .vill
reach such people it should be brought
into action. To torture a poor, helpless dumb brute for the fiendish delight of seeing sulTering is the act of
a, brute, and the guilty oue should le-
ccive a dose on his own back, bared
for the purpose.
A number of the eligible bachelors

Vou are going to hear a lot of healthy kicking in Cranbrook as well as
in many other towns in this province
when the new school act goes into

A Dollar irv Value
For a Dollar in Money
That is what every man asks tor in this world, and self protection nnd
self ipterest warrants the demand. The retail buyer demands it in his
purchases, and the merchant who fails to give "a dollar value for a dollar
in money" will soon he out of business.
The retailer, in turn, must seek the dollai value in all his purchases
Advertising is a part of his purchases. It is a recognized factor in huild-
ing up and maintaining a business it; Cranhrook, as well as in other towns
Results have demonstrated that ilu* judicious advertiser has the advantage
over the man who fails to advertise.
Therefore it behooves the business man to get his dollar value in buying
his advertising. Tbe Cranhrook Herald charges $1 per inch per month
lor its advertising space, and ils circulation in the country tributary to
Cranbrook guarantees a dollar in Value lor every dollar expended. An ad
veriiscmcut in the Herald brings results, This has been piovcn hy all who
try It, simply because Uie Herald is read by the people who patronize the
Cranhrook merchants The basis given by newspaper experts as to the
numuci ol readers for each paper printed Is live. On that basis the Herald would have neatly 4,000 readers m the territory tributary to Cranbrook. But cut that down to 2,500, and that is fair and legitimate. That
means that every issue of the Herald is read by 2,500 people who, during
llie year, make purchases ol Cranhrook business men That is why the
Herald can give the dollar value for every dollar expended The Phoenix
Pioneer is one of the best papers In lhe province, but as an advertising
medium ioi Cranbrook merchants It* space would not be worth five cents
pei imii The Golden Sim Is a no the i oxccllenl paper, bui Cranbrook merchants Could not afford lo patrontie its columns foi the reason that u has
no clrciilaUon in the territory tributary to Cranbiook Neither ol these
papers could give the Cranbrook merchant the circulation Circulation is
lite hauls ol value in estimating the worth ol advertising The Herald has
the circulation, and, what is more, its lists are open tq nispMn.ii by its
advprtlBers .ii any lime. The Herald is not asking foi advertising on the
tui'-is ol friendship, but simply from a eold business standpoint, Irom the

Tbe doetor had tuld young .Isunt
Kidyely to hunt up a quiet pliOO aud
give   liliiidt'lf   six    weeks'    rest,    and
Oreitvllle wui the locality selected.
The young ninn found himself the only
•truuyer In thu village.
While he proceeded to rest the tII-
lagen proceeded lo size blm iu>. At
the end of n week Joslab PIlhA who
could tell tbe difference between n potato buyer nml n lightning rod man
forty roils away, niuiouneed that be
wue stiiisii.'.l. Young llidgely belonged
to neither class mentioned, said Jo-dub,
but wus the son of a buuker aud therefore a perfect gentleman.
IIIh announcement wus followed by
thnt of Mlsa ltulh Williams, who wai
also Batlafled. Miss Kuth bad seen her
twtnty-tlftb birthday. Shu was tlie
daughter of a pour but proud widow.
She herself wns nlso poor, but proud.
Thu widow did dressmaking and millinery nnd wus assisted hy her daughter, roor but proud people must do
■something tu euro their hrend nnd butter.
It wus Mips liuth'a opinion that the
young nnd good looking stranger was
a nilssiiiL- heir nml that he ought to be
made to feel ut hoiuQlnCressvTllowlille
waiting to bo "discovered." llor mother luukeil up from ber wurk to add:
"Uulh, you tiro twenty-live years
old."
"Well, yon needn't throw It lu my
face," was tbe reply.
"You ought'to get mnrrlofl.'*
"Well?"
"Set your enp for tho stranger."
"I'm going to."
She did. She had heen setting her
cap for vurlous and divers men sluee
she was twenty, and If she hadn't met
wltb lurk It wns not her fault. It bad
always happened that they died or got
married to some one els* or hnd to
leave Cressvlllo to ovoid the sheriff.
Tbe young man who had conie to rest
his nerves took long morning walks.
Uuth Williams found out about It from
the Innkeeper's daughter nnd took a
sunrise stroll. 6he took It In just tbe
direction ami just at the time to bv
rescued from an old lamo horse hy
young Rldgely. He dashed forwsrd
like a hero and bent the old horse back,
and Miss Kuth duly ex preyed ber
gratitude and almost fnlnted nway. It
was an auspicious beginning.
In three days more It was the talk of
Cressville that Ruth Williams had
"captured" the stranger.   Tbey went

riding nnd walking together. She exhibited liim to tho neighbors nnd held
her poor but proud head higher than
ever before. At the end of lhe second
week tbey were supposed I" be engaged. If anybody hnd denied lhe rti-
pior, It would huve been usserteil that
young Hldgely bad sat with Inr on tho
front piazza two successive evenings
till after l» o'clock.
"Uuth, hnve you got him?" asked the
mother as the rumors readied her ears.
"He hasn't proposed yet, hut"—
"I see. Kuth, don't let blm get
awny."
Uuth didn't mean tu; but, alas, young '
men will Btrny.    Uncle Jason  Davis I
wns postmaster at CressvUlej but us he ,
was In bed with rheumatism nnd tils
wife bad to nurse him his niece. Miss
Betty Sweet, eame over froni Akron to
help out iu postal affairs,   She was a
girl of twenty and fairly good looking.
She dfdn't set her cap for the stranger,
but In his calls at the postotllce he be- I
caine  acquainted   with   her  and   nt
length asked ber to go boat riding on
tbe mill pond.   She went, nnd tbe widow laid aside the bat she was trimming to say to her daughter: I
"Ruth, that chit of a girl must be
crushed." |
"1 shall crush her," replied tbe
daughter.
But Betty Sweet refused to he
Crushed, and young Rldgely refused to
devote bis entire attention to either.
He was having a mild flirlntlon to assist the recovery of bis nerves, und
time passed pleasantly.
On tbe evening previous to bis departure he sat on the piazza with Ruth,
She had arranged tt so. The mother
had gone to take borne a dress, with
orders to "bang out" as long aa possible. It was an Ideal evening for a
proposal, and Kuth divided the subject
Into twenty-four parta snd worked vv-
cry one of them for all It wa* worth.
It was In fuin, however. The nearest
tbe young man could be got to sp*
proach the dangerous subject was an
admission thnt when be got murrlo-d
he should bave hollyhocks In his front
yard. When he Dually left, be said be
might write, and as the words were accompanied by a atgh Hutu felt that
she wna still justified In hoping ou.
A week paaited, and no letter catue.
Then a second week followed. At tbe
end of that time Ruth understood bow
It was, A letter bud arrived, but hud
been suppressed by Betty Sweet, Mho
was, of course, determined to prevent
s marriage, in another week It was
public gossip that Betty bad tampered
wltb tbe malls. 'She denied It,' of
course. Some one thought It his duty
to write to Washington about It. and It
finally came about that an Inspector
arrived In Cressville aud proceeded to
Inspect
Uuth Williams had lodged uo formal
complaint Alt she had said or would
say was:
"Mr. Rldgely was to write uie. ne
musl have written. What bus become
of the letter?"
Tho Inspector was forced to spend
several days in listening and questioning. He might have doubled the
days bad not the dead letter olllce
solved tbe mystery. It returned to Miss
Ruth Williams of Cressville u letter
thut had been misdirected to Miss
Kuth Wiilame of Copeivllle. She
opened It In tbe presence of the inspector and fifty of the Interested villagers. It was from young Rldgely,
and It read:
Hr Dear Mtss Ruth-One of my alceve
links has bean mlselng ■tries my return.
DM I lose It on the platza t tie last evening
of my stay In your restful Mttle town?
With kind remembrances te all—
"This li not exactly s proposal," said
tbe Inspector as tbe letter was read.
"N-no," replied the blushing Ruth.
"But It may lead to one, snd, while
I congratulate you on the one band,
on tbe other I think you all owe aa
apology to Miss Sweet."
Hie Don IdenllBed Him.
Bank clerks naturally ami necessarily
require satisfactory . Ideu till cat Ion of
persons who ask to have checks cashed.
Tbo same rule Is followed in tbe postoflice by clerks who cash money orders,
hut what tbe nature of the identification shall be and by whom nre matters
which rest to some extent lu the discretion of the clerk. The Boston Herald tells a story in which a dog bore
wltuesB to his master's Identity.
A Boston business man called at tbe
postal order deportment to get an order cashed, but the clerk In attendance
bad only recently been appointed. He
said the caller would have to be Identified before payment could be made.
"Why, I have had hundreds of order*
cashed here," he replied, wltb a show
of impatience. "Isn't there some one
here who knows meV
"I'm the obly one on duty Just now.
Tho others are out to luncheon," said
the clerk.
"Will you take the Inscription on my
dog's collar as sufficient Identification?"
was asked.
"Yea; that will be acceptable,"
The man whistled for bis terrier aud,
taking him In his arm*; "boosted" blm
up to tbe window. The clerk read the
name and address sn tha collar and
paid tbe order.

A clergyman who had recently been
Installed as tbe new pastor of au Episcopal church boasted of bis broad
mlndedness and orthodoxy. His ambition wus to become s popular clergyman. With this end In view be embraced every opportunity to announce
the fact that his advice uud good offices were at tbe service of nny one,
therefore, ns matter of what creed,
color or religion.
One day he was urgently requested
to attend a bouse of sickness. On Inquiry be discovered that tbe sick person was a Presbyterian. Regardless of
this, however, be wended his way, entered the bouse as a good Samaritan
and administered what spiritual relief
he could to the patient. On* leaving
tbe bouse bu encountered the wife of
tbe Invalid and remarked:
"I am very glnd to hnvo been of
nny comfort to your husband, my good
womnn, but tell me what made you
send for me Instead of your own minister?"
"Well, sir, you ace," she replied, "It's
typhus my poor husband has got, and I
didn't think it Just right for our. own
minister to run the risk,"

A hlnejncket who was recently married gives the following description of
his bride nud her apparel:
"My wife Is Just us handsome a craft

often seen on Hmiill craft. Her length

twenty-seven cubic feet of nlr, of light

"At lhe time wt vere spliced she wns

"This rigging is Intended for fair

of corn in Egypt?   Ho Is n rare bird.
Whore is the daughter Mary,    who
once was one of this family circle in
I the days of tho used-to-bo? Oh, Mary
, is upstairs   getting ready to go   to
the opera.    Her beau will be   along
in a minute.
,     Whore Is Torn, wbo used to be one
■ ot tills happy circle that sat   in the

;     And Jim?
■ Well, Jim, you see, is the wonder-

Oh! for the days of the   good old
' home life, when fathers and mothers,
sisters and brothers, enjoyed the   de-
I lights of the family circle; when tho
j chairs .were drawn about and the old
man romped with the kids ami made
a monkey of himself for their suke.
Say, dad, do you ever play with
the youngster now, or do you go
home from work, light    your   pipe,
' grab a paper, and draw yourself into your shell, nr do you hike upstairs, tahs a wush, put oa a eleun
collar, and sroot?
Do you know your child or do you
push him awny when ho comes op
and pulls your pnper? Po you growl
when he neks you: "Say, pn, what
did the teacher mean when she Bitld
the earth moved? Jt uln't moving
now."
i Get up nnd Imv** a romp, nnd answer the kid.   Vou would answer ■-
etmnger    on   the    street.   Unl d.
Kings have done It. Don't mind II
you bag your trousers* there ura
tailor's Irons.    Let them muss yo'ir
' collars and rumple your hair; there
era laundries end brushes and combs
and mtrrr.es.
And thru, when the years draw
down and your footsteps are faltering near the brink, when the lli>ht is
dim and the rond uncertain, do nut
he surprised if your ni'm is held und
your feet are guided by apme son
some daughter you loved mid romped
with,   Romping bonis whipping,
"Yes, but don't I buy (.'lollies and
feed them?"
Yes, that Is true. The farmer nlso
feeds his pigs, blankets his horses.
But you can't purchase a pound of
fellowship or two pounds of love and
romp at a store and send It home.
You curry that,   my friend, beneath

PHONE 26 Cranbrook, B.C.
settled VV. P. Gurd, win
been acting as solicitor for the committee appointed at a public meeting held about n year ago, received
a telegram yesterday afternoon
announcing the fact that an order
iu council luui passed at Victoria
granting the application for the in-
corporation o f Cranbrook. To
some this will be good news, to
others it won't be received with any
degree of gratification while there
arc still more who lunl no preferences either way. Fortunately there
has been no lu.nl feelings over the
matter from the slart. The question has been discussed tor the
past four years, but ,limit a year
imnii large number of the property
owners thought that it was time for
notion on the matter, uml with ihis
j idea in view prevailed u|K,t, the
Board of Trade lo call a special
meeting to discuss tlm question in
ils entirety. The meeting was one
f tlw lurgest ever helil in Cranbrook and the dlsonssion was very
free ami open on both sides of the
question. A vote was tl.ir.LLy tak*
en and the result was verv nearly
unanimous in favor of incorporation. A committee was then ap-
pointed and Mr. Dennis, hind commissioner for the 0, P, II, was seen
as to his views, lie wrote frankly
that although the laws of British
Columbia rendered it impossible to
secure incorporate rights on a small
scale, yet he was of the opinion
that Cranbrook had arrived at the
stage when some step should be
taken to secure local government.
Then the matter rested for several
months as the signatures of the
trustees of the townsite had not
been secured. Two of these were
finally secured, but at this juncture
a counter petition was circulated
and when quite a number of signi-
tures had been secured it wm seat to
|lus ward incorporation. In this way
the matter was presented—to the
government and yesterday decision
was rendered by the passage of the
order in council granting the application for incorporation.
The next move will be the issuing of the letter of patent for the'
new municipality of Cranbrook,
and this will be done us soon as
practical, whicli will be within the
nest week or ten duys. The letter ptitent incorporating a municipality shall Bpecify the name,
limits, extent, and nature of such
municipality, the number of the
Municipal Council, what number
shall form a quorum thereof, the
qualification of the members of
the first council to bo elected, tlie
time and manner of electing lhe
first eouueil, the returning officer
of the lirst election, the polling
places, the day on which the council shall lirst meet, arid such other
provisions as may be necessary for
the establishment of such municipality. In all probability the election will be held within u month's
time. The qualification of an
elector will be a property qualification in addition to the regular
qualifications of a voter on other
occasions. As to candidates there
is a property qualification also.
In the municipal elections it looks
ssif the ladies holding property
will be allowed to vote.
Who will be candidates is an unsolved problem. The names of G.
T.Rogers, E. E. Beattie, G, T.
Cory. Jacob Fink, J. E. McNabb,
V. Hyde Baker, Tom Gill, and Dr.
J. H. King have been suggested
for the mayoralty. Any one of
these men would be safe men, and
with a good council would do
much for the advancement of Cran.
brook's interests.- What Cranbrook wants for the first year is a
strong council and a clean one.
The slogan should go forth that no
grafters need apply. This is a case
where citizenship and local par-
triotism should rank first, and the
name of any man who has been
even in the shadow of graft should
not be considered. It is not a ease
of politics, or of religion; it is a
case of good business.

HK ENTERTAINS A VANCOUVER
COURT WITH A RACEHOHSK
DESCRIPTION OF A
FAKIR.
Tom Wellman, well known In Cranbrook, entertained the court nnd
crowd in attendance at Vancouver
one morning recently in a manner
that caused intense interest and admiration. The Daily Province tells
the story as follows:
liy the time that Mr. T. J. Well-
man, proprietor ol the Leland hotel,
gol out of the witness stand in Jildge
Henderson's court this morning ho
musl have thought that he had hail a
lively time.
Ur. Wellman told the story himself
and smiled as he told it.   The affair
was the trial   ol "Doc" Cuinynw nn
the charge of having obtained money
under false pretences from Mr. II. 11,
Playlonl, manager of the Leland,   of
which Mr. Wellman is proprietor. The

0. N. R. OFFICIALS.
Nelson Tribune, May 1: Early 'this
morning a parly ol Oreat Northern
otlicials came iu by a special traia
from Spokane on their way to Yahk
and Bonner's Ferry. The parly consisted ol (ieneral Superinteadent G.
T. Slaile, (Ieneral Manager F. E.
Hani, Chief Engineer A. 11. Hoge-
land, Assistant General Superintendent 11. A. Kennedy and J. It. Vi. Davis, head ot the permanent way ile-
jiartmi'iil. Captain Core ol the C. P.
It. had been notified ot tlieir arrival,
and preparations had been made in
advance fur the placing uf the car on
a ferry, and the whole party, with
but a. three-quarter of an hour delay,
were conveyed down the lake to Kootenay Landing, whence they are proceeding west lo Yahk, and theace returning to Spokane. It was staled
that a C. P. R, odicial belonging to
lhe stall' of President Shaughncssy of
tlie C. P. It. accompanied1 the party
but this could not be Verified.
What the object ol the party in taking this particular trip is cannot be
authentically nsccrlaftlM, but It Is
surmised that the trip was undertaken
in connect inn with the opening of tlie
Corbln route t„ Spokane, ami the
posslllllll) I,I making use of the Bonnes Ferry line, running in (rotn tlie

There were Iwo meetings of lumbermen this morning and afternoon in
the Sirathcona hotel, which was attended by President F. W. Jones ol
Golden. Vi. C. Wells of Palliser, W.
V. Gurd and A. Leiteh of Cranbrook,
,1. Deschnuips ol Rossland, and T.
Ludgatc and Vi. B. W. Armstrong of
Arrowhead. Interviewed hy a Tribune reporter, President Jones declared thai lho objects of the meeting
were purely for private business of a
routine character.   Neither the impor-

bunch of money and the prospects of
trouble.
Mr. Cumyow wandered into the Leland the night before the opening of
the year. It was New Year's Eve, fl
was also a Friday night, two long
holidays were in sight before tho
"Doe" would have to get out und
rustle His rheumatic cure' again, and
the "Doc" was willing to go some
He started and while ou his way .Mr,
Wellman came In. Mr. Wellman must
have looked good to the "Due," fot
in about three minutes by the clock
ho was digging cheerfully into his
clothes to get J50 in response lo a
touch of the "Doe's."
Mr. Wellman explained how he came
to consent to the divorce proceedings
between'himself nnd bis money, lie
really thought it must have been hyp
notism.
"Hc'iold me that he had a theatre
aad that he wanted to send his wife
away, slid needed 'the money," testified the hotel man.
Then Mr. Wellman, who has owned
a stable of race horses all his liie,
continued:
"The man looked gaitcd right to
mc. lie looked like a stake horse and
talked like he was used to a box stall
and palace horse cars. He didn't
carry a blemish, though he wore
blinkers, and Irom his looks he'd go
back to even money any Utile he
shows on a track. Yes, I came up.
I was easy. I stood lor the touch in
a romp."
Now, Ihis part of the evidence related to the touch. The next was the
cheque, whieh constituted the real
part ol the transaction upon which
Cumyow was arrested and tried.
Cumyow had been talking earnestly
to Mr. Wellmaa, and Mr. Playlord
was not far away. Mr. Wellman
handed over tho t5u and shortly afterward went upstairs. Then'Mr.
Cumyow got busy with Mr. Playford
and gave him a cheque upon the ilaiik
ot Nova Scotia and drew down 135.
The cheque went the roundabout way
through the bank and clearing-house
aud came back looking like a last
year's snow storm.
