chair   ami will 1 mi) preliminaries

their reporl.
Mr N. 1. Harrison was the first
member of the committee to bo
heard from, fie commenced by Baying that no regular report hail heen
drawn up, hul (hat each member
would speak for himself, Kor his
part, Mr. Harrison said that while
circulating the petition be found certain clearly defined causes for the
defeat of the bylaw, viz:
(I), f.aek oi Information, which resulted in several volets assuming
that the council did not want them
to know   the fads.
(2).   Objection to the city solicitor
i-i) Want a guarantee that the
funds would he handled economically.
M), A strong and well defined feeling against the so-called* $3.00 vote.
Mr. Harrison continuing, said: li is
necessary in my opinion to approach
these several objections in :\ calm
and reasonable spirit, wholly devoid
of prejudice and with an eve single
to the best interests nf the city.
The first objection, I trust, will lie
met by the council ai the proposed
public meeting. The second, re cltj
solicitor, I do not care to discuss.
The third can easily be overcome by
the council adopting n straight business policy, with the necessary auditing ami other cheeks on this expenditure. The fourth objection,
that of Hie so called U vole has
been presented in the light that    the
people who    suppl)   the in \   should
elect tlie council, who have the

years ago, when the tat rate
amounted to 21 mills on the dollar,

To the Keillor of the Herald:
Vou have asked for my views
the recent     reciprocal trade arrange-
meiil entered into between Canada
and   Die    United   .States   and    now
awaiting ratification by both countries with thu object, I presume,   of
stimulating    discussion    hy citizens
generally ami Lhe people of the dis
iiiit, uf a question whieh merits
careful consideration. If the question were discussed apart from parly
bias I believe the people of Canada
generally would approve of a policy
vvhicb fm the country enlarges tbe
orbit nf trade just us the merchant
welcomes any change of conditions
which Increases the number of his
customers, So fnr as this province
is concerned we are immediately interested in the probable efleet of the
nnngemcul on the lumbering, lish
ng, mining ami agricultural Industries and Incidentally iu the general
elTecl on Canada as a whole, as, of
course, the prosperity of lhe whole
country redounds to the prosperity of
its component parts. So far as the
lumhei industrv is concerned, il is
evident that lhe views expressed by
lumbermen on Die lirst intimation of
the arrangement—based on Incomplete
fuels—have been greatly modified, if
imi altogether withdrawn. Admittedly the coast lumbermen view it with
favor. They will obtain free access
in lhe United States market, lying
at their doors, so far as rough lumber is concerned, while the duty   on
|shingles is reduced from fifty cents
lo thirty cents a thousand.   In   this
idislriel the lumbermen depend to    a
j large extent, if mil   almost  exclusive
ily, ou llie prairie markets. That

Immigration    policy    nf (he   govern

it by the free Interchange of farm

{ the prairie provinces is assured—as I
believe ii Is—certainly that is      thc

farmers of the prairie provinces—tlieu

WHY DO   CHILDREN   LIKE ZAM-
BUK.
A Chat With Mothers.
"Whenever my children have any
sore places, cuts, or skin troubles,
they ask for Zam Muk. They can always depend upon il lining what is
needed."
So says Mrs. A. Alec, of 170 Chat
bam Street, Montreal.
A missionary, writing from the
West Coast of Africa, says: "One
boy who was treated for a had case
of ulcer, came back recently and said:
'1 like best that green medicine.'
The 'green medicine'  was  /am Muk "
Now why should children, all llie
world over, show such a marked pre
ference for /.am-Iluk?
Children like /am Muk because, ns
soon as applied lu a burn, a eut, or
sore, il stops Hie pain ami then
gradually, but surely, it heals. As
soon as the pain of a wound or sore
is relieved a child can go un wilh ils
play and leave '/am-Huk to finish oil
the healing.
Mothers might look a little more
deeply into the action of Zam Muk
First, it js highly antiseptic. As
soon as applied it stops all danger nf
festering, blood-poisoning ami inflammation. Second, it is soothing. It
cools lhe wound or sore; allays lhe
irritation; stops the pain and smarting. Then, thirdly, it stimulates
the cells, beneath the injured part,
to healthy action, ami causes the
speedy creation ol new, healthy tissue.
Just try Zam-Buk for cuts, or
burns, or cold sores, or eczema, ulcers, rashes, bad leg, piles, varicose
ulcers, or any Inflamed ur diseased
condition of the skin. Its effccl will
highly satisfy you. All druggist

i preserve that market for
themselves and object io the free
admission of rough lumber from the
states. Nn lumberman, however, can
oppose this    agreement in the belief
hai hy doing so this condition will
he changed. It is well known lhat in
view of the fact that rough lumber
is so indispensable to the prairie
farmers aud for that reason was
placed on the free list years ago,
that neither party will now advocate
lhe imposition of a duty niiou it.
\uy one who doubts this can satisfy
himself by addressing a lei ter to
Mr Horden requesting definite information as tu tbr intentions ol the
Conservative party in this regard
should they he returned to power.
Then in regard lo the fishing Indus
i iy, il is well known that this province is llie largest producer id lish
in thc Dominion. It is not possible
in gn into details in a communication necessarily brief. Will anyone
seriously argue, however, that free
access lo lhe American markets will
not he of enormous benefit to Ibis
industry'' If the curtailment oi
markel r and t rado rest rletlons on
natural products which we have lu
sell is a wise policy to pursue then
uf course the proposed agreement is
wholly bad, hul the proposition need
only he stated to show Its absurdity.
In Ihe mining Industry the removal
of Die duly ou coke is openly regard
ed hy lhe coal companies in thc
Clows Nest I'ass as a positive boon.
There is only one opinion in this re
gnrd in Kernie, for instance. They,
nf course, know, too, that the Increased prosperity of the coal companies will efleet beneficially in an
indued way all Ihose who in a
business way depend upon Ihis Industry for Iheir own trade and the lab
ni interests are also well aware
bat increased prosperity among
operators is their best lever for
exacting larger returns for their
labor. True, the agreement might
have gone further—if it were possible
lo obtain it—and include u reduction
at least in the duty on /inc and
lead, but wo are certainly moving in
llic right direction and it may be
that with a government in power
anxious for the removal Of unnecessary tarifl restrictions tbat relief
will in the fui uio he oh'tnined in this
direction.
So far as agricultural Interests are
concerned, the chief opposlston comes
from the fruit growers. I rather
think that the consumer Is silently
thinking that the excessive cost of
fruit in this fruit country calls nl
least for examination into the
causes. Does anyone .seriously believe
thai there will riot nt all times be nn
ample markel for all the fruit that
ean be raised in tbis province yielding an adequate return In the pro
ducei7    due would think from     the
agitation of fruit growers lhat Ihey
had a local market in this province
and on the prairies which has been
peculiarly their own and that by
the importation of free fruil from
abroad il will be taken away, ll is
difficult to get statistics, but every
one knows that at present perhaps
ninety per cent of tin- fruit consumed tm the prairies is Imported, not
withstanding the duty. In this prov
Ince the local market Is not at all
supplied by home grown fruit, lt is
also.true that in very few instances
is lhe fruit of one province or state
matured nml marketed al the same
time. Why, then, slioulil the fruit
grower in this province object to the
consumer receiving frufl from abroad
vvhicb In- is hound to Import—at a
cost just exactly less the amount of
lhe duty when he may enter the
market at a later period and demand his own price? It is said
that the Industry iu this province i
in its infancy and cannot competi
with the more matured orchards of
Washington and Oregon. This argu
ment iu itself shows thai any sel
hack which can possibly occur would
only be temporary. Personally, I do
not believe thai even a temporary
set hack will ensue. Fruit lands arc
cheaper in this province than in the
State of Washington. The home grower, therefore, has an initial advantage
Further, the home grown fruit is
better. Why then tear competition?
lt seems to nu- that the value of
fruil lands iu this province should be
further enhanced and that a general
levelling up with values on the other
side nf the line should result.
I believe that il is owing to the
fact that—viewing the whole matter
from a purely business standpoint —
lliere are no uieritorous reasons for
opposing 1 liis proposed t rude arrangement that opponents endeavor
to raise Imaginary fears by asserting
that it is the forerunner of political
union with the States. The agree

this has been a steady growth during al) these years. Side ny side

Hritain it was $08,035,000. in 1010

SEAL OF ALBERTA the Faultless Flour—makes bread that is perfectly
even in quality. Sometimes you have
noticed bread where one loaf was markedly different from another even in the
same pan. Conditions were exactly the
same. It was made from the same flour.
It seemed to you that there could nol
possibly be any difference, and yet it was
plain to be seen. Now all this comes
from a difference in the milling, but SEAL,
OF cALBERTA is milled in such a way
that there is absolute uniformity throughout the whole product of our mammoth
mills from one year's end to the other.
That is, it  is a dependable
flOlir.     It  can  be  trusted  to  do its
part   -Therefore,   be   sure   you   ask for
SEAL   OF cALBERTA.    There  is no
other quite so good.

EDITORIAL NOTES
Lust night's lioard ol trade meeting musl have served to clear the
an- in regard tn tin- presenl status
ol ilu1 sewerage question In this
city. At last we have In definite
shape thr main objection in, or rath
.■r. the main cause ol, tlie defeal ol
llic sewerage bylaw . on February
2.stli last. Men, win. apparent!)
spoke with knowledge, staled empha
• tleally thai it was the so-called
$'J vole ili.it caused so many proper*
ty owneis to vote against the bylaw.
Hrlefij pm. theso property owners
resented th.' idea ol these li votes
practically controlling the city elections, ami they determined tn show
thai when it tame to passing money
bylaws ihev were supreme, Having
demonstrated clearly their position,
these propert) owners now declare
iheir willingness to pul the sewerage
bylaw through, provided the voters'
list lie cleared of thrne irresponsible voters. Their claim apparently
met with the unqualified approval
rn; the members uf the board ol
trade and with the expressed endorsement nl Mnyor Hum Consequently we may reasonably anticipate that
tlie. cily council will lake early action in the direction ol removing this
grievance, and look forward with
confidence to the passage ol the
sewerage b) law, when re submitted
In this connection lliere is nne point
tn whieh we would draw the attention of the council. in amending
thc bvlaw, regulating the *2 tux,
and restricting tin- catcgorj of those
eligible to rcglstei as city voters,
we would strong!) advise ngalnsi ion
drastic action. There should tie no
occasion tn   disfranchise young   citl
/ens,     wh.i are, ami have lieen, n-gii
larly engaged in business, oi in lhe
pursuit of their particular occupations, for the sole rmson that at
present tliey have not homes ol their
own. Their are numbers ol young
men in .this, as in all other cities,
t<> he classed among tin- best .iti
/ens, who fnr the tune being room in
private residences or live in hotels
To disfranchise this class would, in
om opinion, he a grave erroi l<
should he possible to prepare an
amendment io tin- bylaw, in this
connection, that would qualify anj
man who, fm a stated period prior
to registration had resided pcrman
■•ii11 v in the cily and paid a minimum rental, say of trom (fl to $s
per month, for room In this wav
the rlgnl of eiii/eiishlp would be
conserved to many young men, now
threatened, if tlie amendment propos
ed ai the board of tt.tde meeting   he

WOID DECEPTION.
I se Newbro's   Herpicide Instead.
Wearing artificial hair is a barm
less deceit of which ninny ladies are
guilty. These women are all objects
for sympathy rather than criticism.
Early neglect lu the care of tho
scalp has caused the loss of sn -4JUll.il
hair that their personal appearance
is sadly marred. To correct this
defect they resort to artificial hair.
Most Indies would resent any imputation of personal carelessness and
neglect. And yet very muny women
permit their natural hair to become
so .lull, brittle and lusterless that
it looks no better Mian the artificial.
All this is as unfortunate as il is
unnecessary. Hair that Is unsightly
or thin may usually be attributed
in the malevolent activity of the
dandruff germ. This vicious germ
din rows down Into thc hair follicle,
diorllj destroying its life. Tlio hair
becomes dead, loose and finally drops
ul.
There    is a     remedy sold by    all
rugglsts, the intelligent use ol
winch will kill thc dandruff germ.   11
Isn cleanses lhe   scalp    of all ami
I illations and makes the hair shine
with the luster of life and beauty.
Thai remedy is Newbro's Herpicide

l). S. Lumber Trade
Opposed to Reciprocity
With very  few exceptions members
of the lumhei trade In the United
States have taken serious objection
to the proposed reciprocity with Canada  This was naturally to t xpect-
cti, ns possibly the most sweeping
provision ol (he arrangement is the,
proposal lo allow rough lumber from
Canada to enter the United states
tree ot duty, instead of paying 11.25
per thousand feet, wbicb is the tin ill
at present in force, says the Canada
Lumberman. The most interesting
view expressed by the trade in thc
United Stales so far, Is that whieh
the Hardwood Manufacturers' assocl-
tinn embodied in a series of resolutions passed at the recent ~ annual
meet ing of t he assneint fon, which
was held in Cincinnati. Inasmuch ns
lhe hardwood manufacturers of the
United Stales have tittle nr nothing
to fear in the way of competition
rrom Canadian hardwood, the actual
lumber trade situation does not efleet them. Their opposition lo the
arrangement is bawd on quite a dif
fcrent ground from most of the other
objections which have been made.
Tbey fear that the removal of the
tariff ou products uf the soil will reduce the value of lands which they
own, after they have been cut over
and ure on the market for* sett lenient. This fear is expressch concisely in the following resolutions which
were adopted by thc association:
"Whereas, the Hardwood Manufacturers' association of thc United
.States, whose membership consists
of individuals and firms who are interested in the manufacture of foresl
products produced in the Southern States:
"Whereas, the major portion of thc
lands from which these forests arc
removed nre more suited and valuable
for agricultural purposes than for reforest a lion;
"Whereas, thc proposed reciprocity
treaty with the Dominion of Canada
purposes the removal of the tariff on
products of the soil, both forest and
agricultural;
"Whereas, this action would he inimical to thc interests of the mem
bership of this association who are
the possessors of these lauds, and
would retard their development by
settlers, (aimers ami agriculturists;
therefore, be it
Resolved, that this association is
unalterably opposed to any form ol
reciprocity that singles out for a reduction of tariffs the products of the
soil;
Resolved, that the efforts of each
member be directed to protest
against the inflictatlon of an injury
to our section, so vitally Interested
in agricultural development and progress;
"Resolved, that the secretary of
this association be, and is hereby instructed to convey copies of this resolution to the members of Congress
and senators of the United States."
The "Southern Lumberman," of
Nashville, Tenn., bus always paid
special attention to thc question of
tariff. A large number of its readers
are Interested in southern pine and
as this lumber enters extensively into
competition with Canadian white
pine, they are closely concerned
about thc proposed removal of the
duty from lumber entering the I'nited States. The "Southern Lumberman" expresses itself upon the subject in part as follows:
Even a cursory glance al tho
terms of the proposed treaty will
show that its chief excuse for existence is an effort to redeem party
pledges—that there may he something more than the Payne-Aldrich
Act to which to point the linger   ol
Republican pride in  1812	
The balance of trade under the
terms of the treaty is easily in favor
iu Canada. . * A summary of the
total values of the principal articles
(of import) affected by the proposed
agreement amounts to $48,487,012.
Of this $20,007,080, or 12A per cent
of the total, is (or boards, deals and
planks, laths and shingles. Thus it is
seen that the lumber industry has
to carry the greater portion of the
load. . . Hy thc reciprocity agreement we are given access, not to
Canadian forests, nut to the products of Canadian sawmills, for there
is nothing in the reciprocity agreement which would prevent the Canadians continuing their regulations
forbidding the export of saw logs,
etc., and requiring their manufacture
in Canadian mills. It is a measure.
so far as the above features are concerned, directly for the benefit of Canadian saw and shingle operators, at
thc expense of those of the I'nitcd
.States. . . The present treaty will,
it seems, effect the yellow pine industry more directly than that of the
otter woods, ns it comes into competition more keenly with Canadian
lumber. It is, in (act, not without
its good features for the hardwood
people, as it calls Tor mutually reduced' rates on a line of manufactured commodities whieli includes motor
vehicles, agricultural Implements and
a number of other articles into the
manufacture of which hardwoods enter very largely."
The "Mississippi Valley Lumberman," taking much the same view as
thc "Southern Lumberman," sums up
tlte situation us follows: "It may
not he ultogethcr accurate to attribute Uhe continued depression in the
lumber industry, so fnr as values are
concerned, entirely   to the reduction
of the duty by the tariff hill now iu
force, but wc do believe that this
reduction of the duty contributed to
it to a considerable extent, lhe tact
that tbe importation of lumber Irom
Canada has increased substantially
since the present act became effective
and in spite of the fact that the Ium
her business has lieen very unsatisfactory during the past two yenrs,
would Indicate thut Ibe Reduction iu
duty was influential to a considerable
extent in keeping lumber prices nt a
point where manufacturers bave made
little or no profit. Only within the
past few months has there been nn
improvement in the market for low
grade material. To remove the remainder In the market for low-
grade material. To remove the remainder of the duty on lumber
threatens our markets for all classes
of wood and particularly for the
low grade stock."

lumberman of Chicago, in his evidence before the Ways and Means

An American has ofiered laml
Lanadowne £100,000 for ihe famous
Kembraiull landscape, "The Mill,"
which has been in tbo possession ni
tbe FlUmnurice family for aboul a
century.
The following statement has heen
issued by the directors of tlie National Gallery:
"Lorn Lansdowiie, having heen offered a large price for liis picture of
"The Mill," hy Kemhraiult, has of
feted tin- refusal of tlie picture, which
is still in Ids possession, to (lie trustees of llie National gallery, and bas
promised, a donation of £5,000 to-
. wards lhe purchase of llie picture ior

dowue's contribution of £5,000 if llic

Keiiihiamli was extraordinarily
prolific of porl rails, Imi ins laud-
scapes are comparatively few. "Tbe
Mill" was probably painted in Hill,
when Uie artist's powers were ai
their zenith. Tlie picture shows Ibe
last rays of tbe sun lighting up .*
lonely windmill perched on the ram
part of a ruined bastion, about a
wide moat. The lights and shadows
are wonderful, and tlie picture, i-.ni
pie enough in its composition, breathes the spirit of mystery wliich is

A mill-boy at eight years of age, a

is the record of Mr. James Hodgkin-
soii, bead ol the well known Pontile
ton firm of .lames llodgkinson (Sal-

Mr. llodgkinson has just sold for

miieh salt can bo produced In a given
time as jt done hy tbe present pro
eess. The new method is also e\-
pected to lessen the consumption of
coal used in salt making by 7.'. pel
cent.
The life-story of the inventor reads
like a romance. He slatted work at
eight years of age in a mill, ami naturally had little or no schooling,
Kill he educated himself, and even
taught others. Later lu- was ap
prcntlccd to tho textile trade, ami
when be was quite a young man
owned a mill id bis own.
He was not much over thin, when
he began another business—bis present one—and it was while, titling up
automatic stokers at the Nutlhwicli
works of the Salt Union lhat he con
celved the idea ol lhe invent inn
which* promises to revolutionize the
salt industry.
For four years he worked on his
idea, hut it was four years will
spent..The resull is a patent stoker
hy whieh, with the Use of one lire,
every quality of salt, from the finest
table tti the coarse,"fishery." can be
produced iu one plant. There arc
seven pans, and a system of dampers
controls the heat and keeps up a
uniform feed nud tlie constant temperature so necessary in sal) making
Not only will the Invention rovolu-

Is Canada in Danger ?
IF SO, FROM WHOM
Opponents ol lower taxes and larger trade lor Canada held 11 mass meeting In Masscy Hall, Toronto,
tm Thursday evening, March .ith, to condemn the proposed trade arrangement between Canada ami the United
states. It was presided over by an cx-lieutetianl governor ol Ontario am! was addressed by a number ol pro
iiiiiieiii citizens ol Toronto.
A resolution wan passed expressing tbe sentiments ol those pn    ut      Vs thc    eting had hern arranged
[..1 Uio purpose ol passing the resolution ii must be presumed thai ii ml been carefully prepared, and that il
expressed in the must forceful terms possible the matured opinion lhe men who organized the meeting
Tlio resolution therelore has the morn of putting In convenient lorm the t,csi reasons that ean be given
ngnlnst  the ngreement, ami so enables a reply to the made.
Following is the text of the resolution, and tin- obvious an    -■    ■   ach assertion:
THE  RESOLUTION.
Moved by /.. A. Lash, seconded by
\\. T While, tbat this meeting pm
testa against the adoption of the
reciprocity agreement with the is.

U). it would substantially reverse
the policy which has brought Canada
to her present prosperous and envl
able position and cause widespread
disturbance iu her trade and Injury
tn many interests; jeopardize the
commercial ami political status , nl

(2). It would hamper Canada's
freedom in developing lier own resources in her own way and hy her
own people.

{II. Ity giving Canadian producers
all Hie advantages nf the I'nited
States markel without political as
social mu of any kind, even to Hie
limited exlelil nf a trade treaty, it
would tnke nway any possible reason
for a tendency towards political
union with Hie United States
("») The agreement was made In secret as all trade arrangements between
countries have always been made and
must always be made. Great Britain
has trade treaties with every important country in the world—all
negotiated In secret, without con
sill tat ion with the commercial inter
ests involved ami without any special mandate frnm the people, A special mandate is nol necessary, because under the British system of
responsible government, every government has a standing mandate to
protect and advance the best inter-
(>ls ol the people whenever opportunity offers.
iii). There is no warrant for commercial disturbance iu (he terms nf
the arrangement,
The arrangement can he terminated
without notice at any time the
Canadian people desire.
The only way in which the people
■ an have a fair opportunity to pass
upon it is by giving it final and de
Unite form and efleet hy legislative
enactment, so that they can know
exactly what they are voting on—
su that they uill he voting on n concrete proposition and not un nn abstract   theory. They  then have        the
■I,,uiile opportunity or rejecting lhe
agreement and ol punishing for their
error the men wlm made it. in ac
i-orilance with thc well established
British system ol responsible government.
Is Canada's danger from the government that would reduce
taxation and increase   trade or from the s.
as represented   at   the   Toronto   mectln
called "commercial Interests" (but actually "combine Intern
which would Increase taxation and restrict trade?
The agreemenl Is evidence to the combines that they do not control the government, therefore tiny fight
the agreement ami the government that made it.

details:
At the end of the rainy season the
Bushmen of South Africa go foraging,   taking   with   them   their wives
il children ami most of (heir eaitti-
l\ possessions. The men hunt, using
arimvs tipped with a poison whieh
appeals to he harmless when taken
into the stomach. (The South
American Indians claim Hint the curate which they use fnr this purpose
makes the flesh of the game more
iligestible) While the men hunt, tbe
women ith. edible rools with Sharpened sticks. The favorite root or
tuber, culled leiisbo, Is its big as a
ncnamil, like which il is tilled with
a milky     juice, sn   that tl appeases
both hunger and thirst. Caterpillars
are collected, killed bj crushing thcii
beads and carefully packed in
for future use. Good walei h often a

When we contrast the character ol
ie hind which is to be found along
ilu' Nile and the costly and prlml-
■ conditions under which Irrigation, and in fact all manner of* ng-
iculturnl work, is performed and yet
furnishes the workers a livelihood, it
is easy to foresee the ureal opportunities which lie before the person
Inlying land in Canada, where o con-
slant and easy supply of water is
furnished and guaranteed tor irrigation purposes. Unquestionably, given soil and climatic conditions,
there is no class of farming that
brings belter results than nn Irrigated proposition.
Thc Imperial Hank or Canada have
completed arrangements for thc
opening nf nne nf their branches
here. The oilier is now being furnished and will be opened between now
ami the end of the month for lhe
transacting ol a general banking business Mr, Orubb, of the ltevelsloke
branch, will ael as manager, while
Mr, J. A. Wood, of the Golden
branch, will he accountant.
There is going to be a large tourist
andland seeker traffic throughout the
whole valley this year stimulated by
tin- proposed construction of the
Kootenay Central railway and further aided by local enterprise. A number of personally conducted parties
from Kngland, the United States and
from lhe prairies are already featured      The   Cu! bin Valley Irrigated
l-'rull Lands, Limited, are taking au
active part iu this missionary work.
They have now put their .lauds on
the markets for sale and hy means of
a liberal distribution of maps, pamphlets and the establishing of a good
line of agencies throughout the English-speaking world ihey are certainly going lo make things wnirl.
This year at least t .vo lines ol
boats will he operating nn th1 Columbia river from Golden south in
Windermere, giving a boat each wav
lor nl least every day In the weel;
'Iln- time lahlcs air not yel out,
hul 11 is understood thai in the
ease of the straight passenger steam
i rs they will sail from Golden al
7 a.m.. reaching Windermere the
same evening and return the following day, sailing at 7. The mixed
nnd freight carrying boats will likely
leave Golden on different days at a
similar hour, but will take a slight
ly longer time iu making the pas
sage. Alt ihis pasl winter teams
have heen steadily engaged in haul
Ing freight iu from the main Hue of
the Canadian Pacific railway. With
the advent of settlers ii will keep all
the boats which can he made to run
busy in transporting their require-
meiits, A great reduction in the local
freight  rale is assured.
Mr R. Randolph Hruce, vice-president and manager of the Columbia
Valley Irrigated Fruit Lands, Limited, who has been in the Gld Country
simr last October, has booked his
passage home on the liner sailing on
tbr seventh ol April. He will nave
with liiin a personally conducted par
ly, who are coming Into this part ol
Hritish Columbia lo take up homes.
Great attention is being called to
the Columbia valley, mbflrTSpeclally
the upper part as a place most desirable for mountain climbing. Quite
a sensation was caused by the publication or a full pagr Illustration in
the Illustrated London News, Canadian Supplement, picturing the     six
Swiss chalets, which the C.P.R. propose erect lug ai Gulden and foi
which Mr, Deiinls, manager of tbe
It. C. laud department nl Calgary, is
now calling for tenders. This is considered to be only the beginning of a
long line uf sports tbat will surely

purl of tht- Cl.N.It. Bystcm hut now
and again, once a week m once a
month, as occasion may serve, a
l rain comes up from Bonners Ferry
and earefuiiv boosts the cattle,

proceeds on to Creston and Sirdar
uml in due time disappears hack in

line, indent It is used as a horse ami
eattlc highway by the Indians down
on the reservation aud now and
again it gets a spurt of Industry ami
kills n few of the aborigines when
tbey are meandering along the
track asleep on their cay uses.
But things are about to change.
P, Burns and Co. have an eye on tho
probability of their getting cheap
at tie from over the line aud arc
building an abatoir und refrigerating
plant down near the (} N. tracks
for thc purpose of dealing with the
trade at lhat end. The refrigerating
machinery will he the mosl up-to-
late thing of the kind ever seen in
the Kootenay country. The milts of
the plant are not large but are so
constructed as to he added to with-
mt any trouble as the exigencies rd
trade require.
Creston is doing splendidly. It has
grown lo he quite a little city, and
stylish, too. They have what we (tf
Cranhrook lack, signs on the corners
of their streets nml avenues anil on
■naiiiclli'd tablets, al that. The man
who knows lhe names of the street
r avenue on which tic lives in Cranbrook is quite out of lhe common—
rather prides himself on his recondite
knowledge, in fact. There tliey have
their electric light, telephones and
the very deuce and all of a high pre*
lUro water supply. The pressure is
nough, almost, to lift the pipes out
•f the street or to tear a binning
bouse Into Hitters
They want cable cars, though. The
bills are a caution. Fine exercise, lo
be sure, hut they are somewhat trying, all the same. With the cable
cars this difficulty will be easily
Iovercome. And the Crestonlans will
atuive them all in their good time.
Someone said the other day they
had Knglish sparrows there. If he
had said they had bubonic plague he
could not have worse offended. Fnr
the information of those Interested In
the Knglish sparrow il can be said
that they come anil go ou the hox
cars. Maybe the birds seen in Creston {If they really were Been) were
merely tramp, or hobo, or dead heat,
sparrows on the hike for the coast.
Anyhow, there arc no sparrows
there. We have tons of them in Cranbrook, blackguardly   little raggamui-
