Laurier to-night gave notice of an
address to His Majesty asking for nil

changing the scale of payments to he
made by Ihe Dominion to the several
provinces. The amendments asked
are as follows:
(a) Instead of Hie amounts now

for the support of their governments
.uul legislatures to he according to
population and as follows:
1. Where the populai ion of lhc

2, Where the population of the

ii.   Where the     population of
province exceeds 1,500,000, $210,000.
(by Instead of an mutual grant per
head of population now allowed, the
annual payment hereafter to be al
the same rate of eighty cents per
head, but on the population of each
piovince, as ascertained from time
lo time hy the last biennial census,
until such population exceeds '.500,-
000 and at Ihe rate of sixty cents
|kt head for so much of said population as may exceed $2,500,000.
(c) An additional allowance to ihe
extent of $100,000 annually for ten
years to the province ol British

wish     to   spcjit*   to you upon.   The
hiiiruian    has    attracted my attention to it.   It is a local subject, and
■ne of suHleienl   importance to    lay
'icfore you.     li refers to   the   firent
liii-stiim   of    Irrigation.   This     is a
ipiestlon which has    been introduced
In AHierta, and one which has aflccted
Hie whole nf western Canada, and it
may he of   interest    to you, because
.is   you know   there are certain portions of British Columbia which,have
to be irrij*at--d before they can realize their, greatest development.     The
greatest   Irrigation  scheme we    have
on hand is just a little over 350,000
lores, and we expect in tbat    block
to have the   most   intensely settled
block of Innd   not only iu    Western
Canada, but iu any part of     North
America.     We are discouragim*    the
sale of wore,than 80 acres to    any
• me man.    If we can put the head of
the family on every 80 or 100 acres
of laud    in that   block, you can see
how intensely     settled it will     be
How much fruit will these people all
use that you   are producing in     U.
The Canadian Pacific are spending six million dollars to bring doom
lhat result, and we will have there a
market that will consume practically
II the   frull  vou can raise in     tbe
Okanagan, or the Columbia, or    the
Kootenay   districts,   and   it is just
nver thi''mountains.    All you have to
lo is to step over there. (Laughter.)
"Now,  gentlemen,   I  have detained
vou a very long time.    I am    exceedingly obliged to you for tbe way
iu which you have listened  to     my
rumbling   address.        1 have     heen

I have devoted    a great deal of my

which 1 think should he of interest to

Western Canada  is     to-day probuhly

there is outstanding,     What docs it

reciprocity treaty or any other kind

south as compared     with  tbe rapid
development of our country.'     There
is im oilier question which will be of
'he same importance to the Dominion
as a whole.    There is uu other question of the same Importance to   the
Dominion as a whole as the question
of ihe   proper    tmilding up and do

lion of our Dominion.     And 1   think
wo have    started     out on the right

are heading the right way.     I think
ibe development is going to be rapid
I have    no    doubt, gentlemen, what-

I  mean a     strongly Canadian sentiment, and the term Canada will    be

Kditor Cranbrook Herald,
Dear Sir: How to Make Cranbrook
There are many suggestions might
he iiiaile but il seems to ine there
ire two especially worthy of notice
Kiistly, let there lie no "peanut village" politics In municipal affairs
Musi uf us come from large eitlct
sii'-h as London, Glasgow, Montreal,
Toronto and l.ucan, and all have city
ideas combined with western habits
ol thought, ihe greatest combination
ever discovered in man; and we want
our city run on a large, but not a
boom, scale. Let us Ret nftei
everything in sight, nnd once we Rei
ii, hold it.
The second suggestion is one which
ought io he dent lo Hie editorial
heart, "Advertise"—and keep on advertising. Don't boom—-but advertise legitimately, and let every citizen high and low, at home and
abroad, tell of the "Wonders ot
Cranbrook "
Yours trulv,
(1. II. Thompson.
Cranbrook has had a steady,
healthy growth, from the days ot its
Inception to iis present status ns an
Incorporated city, a growth that has
been natural and that was inevit-- .
able, inasmuch as the district 'required one business center. By reason of its advantages iu location and
the fact of its being the 0. P. R.
divisional point Cranbrook has he-
coinu that center, hut until the dis-
trici becomes more thickly populated
it seems impossible that the future
growth of the city, if left to Itself
ean be otherwise tlmn slow. And
increased population means
Ihe Introduction ot more capital, Hie
beginning of more industries and the
increase in the number of those who
buy to the benefit ol those who sell,
it behoves lhose citizens who     have
their own lin.inci.il g I at heart to
exert themselves to secure that    accession of population.
H Is a platitude lhat nothing succeeds like success, bill if success cannot or does not make Itself known it
i-aniot advance along Its own line as
it should do. And the process of
making Itself known, whatever lorm
il may take, is advertisement, lu all
lines iif business, look at them how
we may, advertiseuieni is ihe Keynote to prosperity when that advertisement is honest and so true to
Ihe actual slate nf affairs that he
who advertises, when called upon to
lo so, cau "deliver  the goods."
And it is the same in regard to a
municipality as it is iu the business
of ii mercantile house. The man
who does not advertise in nny manner whatsoever cannot expect much
increase in his business in the (ace
nf an active advertising campaign
,'arried on hy a rival, and a com-
nunity which docs not let the world
it large know when* and what it is
md why, cannot expect the eyes of
ihe world to he focussed upon it
when other attractions are constantly
'icing placed before those eyes
In the     provinces of Alberta    nnd
Saskatchewan nre   towns almost
numerable     which are drawing      to
themselves    those   thousands of srt-
tlers who yearly are establishing fur
themselves   new     homes iu  the last

it  first by the Dominion government
in a   way   that     Cranhrook ean not

Cranbrook cannot go to the seat   of

can go to those new settlers on   the

sin-wing them what chances for pros-
nerlty, proRrcss    and comfort      are
waiting to be grasped, induce not   a
lew  of them to come this way.     Tn
In this the city and district     must
he brought  to their attention, must
be advertised consistently nnd    hon-
istly, must constantly lie kept before
them.    The board ol trade, assuming

citizens to see that any  impetus so

.f itself can  do but  little Rood;  followed    up   it    is   capable of   great
(lings.     Let all join in tiie scheme

low for several weeks und had lately
been Retting worse quite rapidly, al-
thoiij-h those at the home did ' not
fullv realize the closeness of death
til the lust few bonis, so success
ful had been the effort of the deceas-
■ d in concealing from his family the
real condition of his ailment. Mr
Huchcroft had been ailing for sev-
i;il years, but not until about two
months ago had he been able to ascertain the true nature ot his nil
ment. He had been treat oil ;it various times for heart trouble and ln-
Htrestion, hut  upon his arrival     in
t-rat;l|r00k at  the close Ot his season's
work he consulted I»rs. King and
Oreen and learned Hint his trouble
rose from a cancer of the stomaeh
ml that it would he onlv a short
time before death would claim him.
VVMh his characteristic self-control
Hid determination he fought Ihe los-
ng fi^ht until about 2 a.m, Snturday
morning, when the closeness of death
became evident to his household, who
were nt his bedside. His illness had
in en a painful one, in spite ol all
that medical science ami tetutei care
i ulil do to alleviate it.
The late .1. A. Huchcroft was born
I Piitston, Out., H2 years ago and
lived the greater portion of tlml
time in his native province, being
t one time actively engaged in the
lumber business, until falling health
necessitated his removing to western
Canada. Recovering somewhat bis
old time vigor he again took up the
Work id his trade anil snent the last
eight years of his life ns a carpenter
Htbongb very reserved in his manner he was found by those who be-
''.uni' acql.iintfil with him to have
the most generous and honorable disposition. He always supported nny
good cause and used' the Golden Rule
as his standard in .ill things
Kor many years lie had heen a
loyal member of the Methodist
Politically he was n staunch Conservative, 'of the Lite Sir J. A.
M.icdonald'.s type, although in late
years he never allowed party ties to
blind his reasoning.
He leaves a daughter, Miss M. E.
Iluehcroft and a son, ,1. F. Huchcroft, to mourn his loss.
The funeral services were held at
the Methodist church Sunday afternoon and the remains were forward-
nl to Shaiilev, Out., for interment

given as to tho ideality of the government's appointee to the office of
sub-collector ami it is therefore pre

temporarily. There are several ap
plicuiiis in the district for Hie posilion. Among them is L. W. Kirks,

from Blairmore and Coleman. And
thus nre the efforts of the Frank

has for ii long lime been Urging upon

erntly in Ihe casl he interviewed

The mine was closed down yester-
