The cily council   mot last evening
ami eaeli im-m-lier and Hm* iii.iv«>r werr
present, Tin- proceeding! started
00 Willi Die usual laek ol enthusiasm

were present, mon as a means to
kill time than anything else, and did.
nut Dipnoi to get BUOb lull value Ior,
their money.
Tlie    hal]      started    rolling      wlien .
Mayor Rogers called up the petition
ut the ladies who had visits thfl
ciiiiui'il chitmlH'i a week ago and de-,
llvcred addresses advocating the clou* I
ing ut the hotels on Sunday and the'
removal nl tue bouses ol ill-fame. The!
iiiaym said that the police commission was composed ol two members,
wilii himself as an e\-ollicio mt-inher,
anil the Iwo appointed members could
not agree on the hotel question. As
it was Impossible to secure Mie opinions ol all of tht. people, he thought
that it would be well to secure th
opinions of the aldermen, as tliey
had heen elected to represent the
people. This proposition seemed to
meet with the approval ol the members of the council. Alderman Tisdale moved that the law be enforced,
which was seconded by Alderman
Qreer. Mr. Ityan spoke flrst and
said that he thought that it was a
mistake lot the council to take this
mattei up at the present time. He
did not believe there was any necessity lor it, There was no trouble in
town and there had not beeu any for
long time.
Alderman   Jackson
said that    he

took the same view of the mailer as
did Alderman Ryan.
Alderman Murphy said that his
views were the same as those expressed by Aldermen Jackson and
Ryan. He knew by making Inquiries
that there would be many people who
would not come to. Cranhrook if the
hotels weie to close their bars early
Saturday night, and lie had got thai
information by making many !tu|uiries
un Lire toad. If the hotels were
closed ihe men would not come here
hut would go elsewhere to spend their
money, not only for liquor but fur
goods as well.
Alderman Tisdale could not agree
wilh the three who had just spoken.
He thought ihat the men would come
to town to buy goods, but that after
got/ting a few drinks they would spend
all  their money  for whiskey.
Alderman Jackson said that the
reason that so many men quit going
to Fernie is because that town has
adopted the closed policy, Cranbrooi. had a good class of hotel keepers who were disposed to do whal
was right. If it were otherwise he
would probably have a different opinion on  the subject.
Alderman (ireer, speaking on the
subject, said:
It has been understood that the
council had no right to interfere with
the hotels. I have no desire ito
cinch the hotels or drive business
away from Cranbrook. All I ask is
Uut they abide by the law. If tlie
council has nothing to do with this
mat ler, what are we Incorporated
tor?     What  is the law for/
Alderman Kink saitl that just at
this time he thought that it'was inadvisable lor the council to Interfere
with the hotels, although it might
In- later. He was of the opinion
thai after the houses of prostitution
had been removed from their present
location that- there would he less
trouble from liquor than there was
now, and he did nol believe that there
was a  'own in tlie west the size   of
anbrook that bad such a good
id in tins respect,
Alderman Qreer wanted tho opinion
the city solicitor as to tbe right
ol the council in tlte matter.
Alderman Ilyau asked if tlie council
had any business to interfere with the
matter at aii. Continuing Mr. Ryan
said: "Now, your worship, you
have asked us to express ourselves,
WO would like to bave your worship
express himself."
The mayor reviewed the situation,
explaining why he had asked for the
opinion of Mie members ol the council, saying that some were of the
opinion that he favored the movement inaugurated by the ladies, and
some thai he favored thc hotel men.
Mr. Ityan—Hut will you give    your
The mayor -sad that sometimes on
some questions Ihat was a difficult
matter. In the various talks he had
had wiih different peoplo, according to
some statements made to him, it
might be a good idea to close the
hotels on Sunday, while according tn
Statements made by others, it might
be a detriment to the town. ,
Alderman Jackson—Your worship,
that looks like straddling   the fence,
Mayoi  Rogers—Not at all.
Alderman Greer—l don'l propose to
net as informer, If the hotels nie
lefl open I eau stand il. I won'l
report on ihc hotels personally, 1
believe that, for all concornod It
winilil be a good thing to close lhe
hotels on Sunday. 1 want all to
understand that I am out and out
and llat footed in favor of closing
ihe hotels on Sunday.
At Ibis stage ol the proceedings
the mayor rillod the motion oul of
order on lbe advice of the city solicitor.
The motion as agreed upon and the
opinion of Uio city solicitor are as
A motion in any way regulating
the hours of opening and closing
hotels is out of order, being beyond
the powers ol the council, therefore,
the motion as put "that the hotels
Iw closed according to the Act
out. of order.
This does not mean that a motion
could not be put "that in the opinion
of tbe council the police should en
force the provisions of the Act,'
which would of course, be in order.
After this Alderman Greer asked
the Herald editor to publish the facts
of the meeting so that he would be
placed in the right light, as be hail

In the crowded closing days of the
last session of congress, when everybody was rushed to death and the
nights as well as the days were gi\-
cn to law-making, Senator Hale, of
Maine, mot Smntui Spooncr, of
Wisconsin, in one of the corridors of
Mie capilol.
"1 hope you will he here to-nigh!.
Sume matters that are ol vital importance are to come up. We shall
need you on the lloor."
"1 don't think 1 can attend tonight," Spooncr replied. "1 have a
long-standing engagement to take
.Mrs. Spooner to dinner at a friend's,
and she insists that 1 must go."
"Tui! tut! Spooner," Senator Hale
protested. "That is not llie proper
patriotic spirit. Why, man, wc need
yuu here, You must break your engagement and do your duty to your
constituents, No Senator should
think of a dinner pally on such a
night as this."
"Well," Senator Spooner said hesitatingly, "1 will try to get out of it.
Maybe Mrs. Spooner will release inc.
Of course, 1 appreciate the force uf
your remarks, and I think 1 can arrange it to he here."
Ile went to the telephone, called
Mrs. Spooner, explained the situation
to her and tu-ltl her to go to the dinner without him, as lie was compelled
tu remain at the oapitol,
About midnight, after an exhausting session, and with some hours of
wurk ahead of him, Senator Spooner
called his wife again.
"Did you have a good time, my
dear?" he asked.
"Oh, yes," she replied. "It was a
very delightful affair."
"Who took you out to dinner'." inquired the solicitous husband.
"Why," said Mrs. Spooncr, "I
went wiih Senator 11.ile."

A woman 51 years obi took her
own life iu Chicago recently, leaving
to her sorrowing family this onlv
explanation. "1 am so tired, so
tired— there is so much to do." She
had finished her task beforo she
sought death. Her home had been
made neat and clean. A Iteavy washing had lieen dried, ironed and laid
out In neat orderly piles. Then she
had gone to the attic of the little
borne and with her own tlml hands
had Wolcbmcd death. This is a sad
lesson to the living whu may still
have a tired mother in the ' household, bearing the heavy lun dens un-
cnmplainingly, and should tte dear lo
those whom she cares for so faithfully. She should be given every
help possible, from the strongest son's
and daughters who are neglecting the
home duties that thev might perform, leaving them for the tired
mother to do. "I am so tired, so
tired—there is so much to do." Too
many a good mother feels it as she
goes on and on bearing the burdens.
Too many well fcrown children
forget it as they seek pleasure and
pas-time and constantly add to thc
burdens of the mother, which should
Ire lightened as the years go by.
Thc above appeared in a recent issue of the Chicago Drover's Journal.
We can but wonder if tliere are any
mothers In the homes this paper visits, who are saying, "I am sn tired,
su tired." Voung lady, cut this nut
and paste it in front of your mirror, so you may see it many times
each day. If there is a tired mother
in the home each member of ihe family circle is knowing to the fact.
Too many of our young people fail in
showing considerate attention, and
ton oft-eh do noi fully appreciate thc
salt-sacrificing love aiid benigh presence of mother. Like tho air and the
sunlight, she and her lender ministries are received and looked upon
as a matter of fact. When she is at
rest in the home of the soul this
thoughtless negligence will cost them
many a tear. The time will come
when the consciousness of having done
our duty to those who bore and
cherished us, will be of more value
'han tame or gold. This department
is conducted in the hope that it may
awaken on the part of the husband
and the child a deeper appreciation of
lior who is the central figure of home;
that it may strengthen the family
bonds, making them more beautiful
and tender; that it may encourage
charity and breathe hope for that
future wliere language is music,
thought is light, and love is law. If
you still nave vour mother with you,
see that she never bas cause to say,
"I am so tired" if in your power to
prevent it. Let the above sad lesson be kept fresh in memory's casket
never to be lost or forgotten.

before K. J. Scovll, S. M., charging
them with giving Wm, Paul, a 1
year-old Indian hoy, liquor. This
case was brought oil account of Mie
evidence brought out at the trial
Louie Paul on the previous Monday.
The boy stated that be found a bottle
on the ice and took it to the camp,
where the men opened It, told him it
was whiskey and give him some to:
drink. Une Indian pleaded guilty and
the other iu bis evidence finally admitted his guilt. They were each
given the option of a fine of $25 and
costs or spending a month at hard
labor in the Golden jail, and chose to
pay tlte fine. The law provides thai
in case an Indian supplies another Indian with liquor he shall be fined not
less than $2o or one month in jail or
both and not more than $100 or six
months; that is for selling, supplying
or giving any liquor. For a while
person giving, supplying or selling
liquor to an Indian Uie law provides
Ihe lowest fine shall he $50 or one
month in jail or both, and the highest %'dtiti or six mouths or both, and
iu case tlw fine and imprisonment
imposed if the fine is not paid another six months may be given. It is a
very serious matter to provide an Indian with liquor as it invariably sets
bim wild and nothing will stop him
when under Its Inlluence. Tlie evidence taken in the case of Louie Paul
shows that he was ipiiic determined
to have a gun and go out on tbe war

To Lord Stratbcona—perhaps more
than to any other one man—does Canada
owe her present day prosperity and tlie
brightness of her future. He believed
in the country and tbe marvelous possibilities of proper development. With the
completion of tbe C. P. R., tbe ualiou
awoke to ils resources and greatness.
To Fit-Reform—more than to any other
one means—is due tbe fact Uiat Canadians
are tbe best dressed men on tbe continent.
fit-Reform blazed tbe trail iu dress, as
Lord Stratbcoua and bis associates did
through thc trackless plains aud mountains of the Northwest.
Fit-Reform was founded ou three great
ideas. First: to give men garments,
planned by designers who could create
styles, aud made up by the best tailors
in the Dominion. Second : to set a standard of value so high thai it would be
everywhere recognize! as the criterion of
men's dress. Third-: that by a scientific
study of physique, lbe different types of
men could be graded and a system ef
sizes successfully devised. The reformation of men's garments came wilb Ibis
solution of the system of sizes. So accurate were the first calculations, and so
carefully were they tested, that any man
may step Into any Fit-Rtfonn Wardrobe,
select the Suit or Overcoat that pleases
his fancy, and have it fil perfectly—he be
tall or short, large or small, stout or thin,
or normal.
This is what Fit-Reform meant at its
Inception. This is what it means to-day-
It was a success at tbe start. It is a far
greater success to-day. Men were eager to
lest the promise of tailormade garments,
ready for service. And be it to tbe credit
of   Fit-Reform  that  every  promise  of
Jiuality aud satisfaction has been faith-
ully kept.
Fit-Reform tailors are a trained corps
of specialists. Each tailor is au expert
on one part of tbe work. Ue moulds
collars, lapels, shoulders- puts in sleeves
—shapes trousers. Uut docs just that one
thiug. Naturally he acquires a skill aud
dexterity that no custom tailor ever does.
l-'ew men realize how vitally important
Is the question of workmanship. Only
painstaking expert handwork can givu
permanent shapeliness lo a garment, No
matter how a coat looks, it cannol and
will uol hold its shape nor retain its grace
unless tbe inside bus been properly
moulded and held in place, ll is because
the foundation is right, Uiat Fit-Reform
garments uot only impress one favorably
at first glance, but also retain theii
Of equal importance to wearers Is the
quality of cloth. Here the exceptional
values offered by Fit-Reform may be
instantly noted. Tbe richness of the
patterns, the air of quiet elegance and
perfect taste, would never be possible
with cloths of doubtful grades.
Every wearer of Fit-Reform garments
feels tbe security of Uie Fit-Reform label.
They know it is the garments behind the
label that make the label stand for all
that is best in tailoring.
To the man who does not know values,
it is a guide to satisfaction. To the man,
who is unacquainted with tailoring, ft is
a hallmark of perfection. To the man
who does not hava the time to keep
abreast of tbe fashions, it is the surety of
correctness. To all men, it is a guarantee
of a great commercial business, ready to
make good any fault in materials or
workmanship of any garment bearing
this label.
Fit-Reform has been one of the substantial successes of new Canada. Fit-
Reform garments are demanded by well
dressed men nil over Canada. Fit-'
Reform Wardrobes are in all the leading
cities from tbe Atlantic to the Pacific, for
once a wearer of Fit Reform garments,
always a wearer.

Butte, Mont., March 13.—During the
fiercest storm that has raged along
the line in 20 years, four giant locomotives of the Oregon Short Line
crashed together a short, distance this
side of Humphrey at 4.20 o'clock this
morning, killing Fireman S. J. Lucas
and painfully injuring a number of
trainmen and occupants of ihe passenger conches. Lucas was hurled
headlong against ttie door of the firebox and was buried beneath a mass
of flaming conl.
When rescued his fare and head
were charred almost beyond recognition.
Engineer Erlckson escaped by leaping through a cab window. He was
painfully cut about Ihe hands and
arms, bul was otherwise uninjured,
undue!or John Quinn suffered a
bruised, head, nnd Baggageman Fit*-
Patrick sustained a sculp wound.
The passengers nn Ihe northbound
train escaped without injury, although many were severely shaken
The engines were going double headers because of t-he deep snow, and,
owing to the fact that the water
tank at Mon Id a was frozen, two engines left that point fur the next
tank, thinking they had the right o(
way. A short, distance out the
double header struck the double head-1

Tlie collision broke the steam pipes

were compelled to remain in their
berths to escape the piercing cold, thc
temperature being 20 degrees Mow
