Tlte lair and race meeting this vein'
wns a mosl decided Bttccesa. There
ivcro some cuniplaiiits in regard to
thu races, but no raco meeting was
,'H'I lield in the world when' this did
not occur. Kvery horse cannot win
uud raco mecls uu.l like otlicr professional contests, nobody knows who
is going to hu Ilu' winner. Cran-

in Ihis provlueo, being employed In

All-hie      Elwell,      who iiiiiii.   iii      ns
second, is an nt'ih'tc win, has won
many prizes since lie came to Cranhrook ami was a general favorite
with the people ou the grounds, K.
W. Clark won the third prize anil
proved t(, he a stayer in the raco.
The agricultural display proved to
he a surprise not onlv to tlie people
of Cranbrook but to the visitors as
well, lt demonstrated th.- fact that
the disirict of East Kootenay hml
the climate and soil to produce the
very hest of products iit the way of
fruit, vegetables und grai'n. It also
showed that the land around Cranbronk is tlie kind of land that will
produce, and tliat men who invest in
land here, are making the best kind
of an investment, since thev can
raise anything within reason and have
the best market in the world right at
their door. That is why the fair
was a success. That is why there
will he a hetter fair next vear. That
is why the people will take a greater interest next vear than Ihev did
this year. That is why Cranhrook
and East Kootenav arc growing.
That is why Cranhrook is bound to be
prosperous, because it is the center
of lbe greatest fruit growing, lumbering, agricultural and minim! district on the North American continent. Let the next fair be hotter
than the first. Let every man in
Cranbrook and East Kootenay do all
that thev can to make the next fair
hetter than the 'ast one. Let us be
roosters and not knockers. Tell the
truth and that is .the way to make
vour country.
The Cranbrook fair of l'JOt) is now
a tiling ot the pust and the management have every reason lo sliuse
hands witti themselves on the resmt.
Eu-ry person who climbed the big
lull uit amply repaid for Uu- exertion when they saw what tlie Agricultural association had to show
Ihem, and both residents of our ilistriet and visitors were astonished to
say the least, at the quantity nun
quality of the exhibits.
Uur Crcslon friends were lien;     in
great force ant] to see their fruit ami
u-gttables made everyone who lives i
East Kootenay feel that '-we ate it."
it wouiil he nice to say something
in praise ot lhe Creston boys wh'
came with the exhibit, Messrs. Jaj
.lav Atherton, I'. I'. Ueil and J. 1'.

should he said would mean bankruptcy for the Herald in ihe cosl ot

Fink presented a resolution
File Chiefs of llritish Co-
whleh called on the govem-
withdruw     all permits for
iliim*; brush lires for the purpose of
cienr ng laud during the dry mouths
of tbe year. The ranchers could eas-
ily enough pile the brush in the fall
and bunt it iu the early spring when
there would be little or no danger of
the lire getting away from them.
A. I*!. Walts when questioned on ibe
causes of fniesl fires gave it as his
view that fullv llll per cent of all
brush lires started abuig lhe lines of
Hie right-of-way of Uie railways.
Spark arresters m ihe engiucs did not
appear to br efTeetlvc, or, perhaps,
wire nol permitted tu he cHeetlvc-
Where there aie heavy grades the
number of lues is, naturally, greater
than wliere lhe lines are level, since
the engines have to be run harder.
He was willing lo pav his own proportion of the cosl of fire protection
or lire lighting, provided the C.I'.R.
would take up its proper proportion
of the cost of the lires startiM bv its
•ngiiics. lie thuiiglit it entirelv unfair lhat he and the other lumbermen
d the district should put tln-ir bands
iu their pockets to figbt tires of tbe
C.IUt.s making. He was entirelv in
'ftVor of a perpetuity of interefit' in
limber limits. The license system
was bad from many points ol view.
Otis Staples attributed most 0! the
'ires to people throwing the fae ends
ft cigarettes and cigars into a" brush
without having first extinguished
them. Workmen in tbe logging and
mill camps often offended in this wav.
It was difficult to find a cause for
some of the fires on anv other bv-
•lolhesis. Some of the fires along
Uie railway were also certainlv caus-
*d by people throwing cigarettes out
of the windows. No doubt many
were caused by eneine sparks and the
companies operatinc the railways
should be made responsible for tlie in-
iury that sprung from such fires.
The foregoing notes were ta-:en
■ rom a very short resume of the
evidence of (he gentlemen quoted
which Mr. H. .1. Hartley, the official
stenographer to the commission, gave
to the Herald representative.
I'eter Lund, managing director of
the Crows Nest Pass T.umber com-
tanv. Wardner, stated in answer to
I, A. Harvey, K.C, who acted for
Uie timber owners, that as far as
this district was concerned the license fees were practicallv prohibitive. It was unfair that here in
East Kootenay, where tlie averate
■ut per acre did not, if at all, exceed
B.000 feet, as much had to be paid as
down ou the coast, where 'id,000 fitt
to the acre was far from uncommon.
The cut even went frequently hicher
'ban that. If the license fee was
traded to SltiO per vear f,n tho basis
of 10,000 feet to the acre, and so
proportionately upward or downward, it would, he thoueht. ho fair
•■nouL-.li. To charge as much for tbe
inferior class of timber here as com-
nared with that on the coast was
most unfair.
Tiie present system of timber tenure
did riot constitute the reasonable
basis of a sound business proposition.
lhe efiect of the license system was
that owners had to exploit their
limits, run over them, get over the
nest of the stuff and leave the rest to
la-u care of itself. Take the case of
an owner who had paid license fees
ior fifteen years, bis equity or right
was not a penny tbe better for all
ni.s investment. On the contrary, he
then had to make haste to gel the
Umber ofi the land. Kxistmg titles
are practically worthless. He never
had occasion to try to borrow from
Un- banks on the mere security iof bis
menses, but he believed tbey would
hot advance such a security. Possibly tbe hanking laws of Canada
.M-re against such a thing.
Tb.- instability ol title under the
pri sent system did not t-end to protection or to the conservation id the
forest growth. If there were per-
■H-luity of tenure on a fair business
basis an owner would take care to
handle his investment as a business
man should. Ih would put in good
roads to tin- timber and cut ofi what
was lit for Uie market and Mien com*'
back in the course of a few years and
■jet out another crop. As, things are
i mau goes in and cuts the crops of
twenty-live vears in one, season and
in doing so destroys 75 per cent ol
what remains of the younc timl>er
ami smaller sized stuff." Tbe tops
and limbs are left about, a serious
menace it fire once gets into the
slashings. He was twelve yeais
lhe district and bad never setn
single spit in the w<»ods tliat had not
been, at one lime or another, touched
by fire. The merchantable timber
was such as bad survived those fires
Tbe bull pine, sometimes called the
western white pine, the Iir and the
lanli bad, owing to the great thickness of their bark, a high power of
i esisting fin1 and in this way survived some great conflagration, whicli he
considered swept tbis country many
years ago. Wbat WO had for the
innrkel now was wbat came through
tbat fire.
In answer to the question wbat be
considered the best maniwT of nre
venting finest lires, he ftaid that fires
should not be permitted at all. It
was not a matter of lire fighting, it
vvas ;i matter of simply not per-
mitting them in any torm. it was
prevention, absolute prevention, rather than cure. If there were perpetuity of tenure then the owners would
sunn s^r in it Uiat lires would be
prevented, ami litis withuut expense
lo thc government. Perpetuity
would settle the entire forestry question if tlie basis uf rentals was fair
and equitable. As in the question
of the present royalty of Tin a'lits
per thousand, he would not lw iu
lavor ol fixing it for all   time.     Ile
would suggest ihal it be fixed (or say
un years. This would enable mill
owners to estimate fixed charges,
i'hiity or lort) years hence the value
nf timber may increase to such a
joint that the royalty might be fairly increased, but for the present    it
night, fa* considered, k- wi:
ni ten years.

.or the use of the commission.
In answer to Mr. Ku-tuu Mi- Lund
stated that there was no necessity
lot issuing more Umber lic\-n*>es at
present. There was enough in the
nands ol private parties to sup'....
the markets for tbe nexl twenty
years. He would no* approve of all
ihe timber being kept in tbe hands of

the government could induix- ihe

its hands on the existing terms It
would have made the best possible
uargam for iu*. government- He
would not say as much for the
who '-vould buy ;hs timber.
In answer to a question from
Fltrmerfelt he said that be did
th.nk it wise to make the matter of
lire protection for the forests an issue
Between the lumbermen and the government. Tbe matter ol preventing
those destructive fires concerned
everyone as well as those engaged in
Uie lumber business.

mind of each:—What unseen power had led tbem to tbis

waa being repeated; it seemed for tbem alone? Could
It be that she was with them, after all, and had brought

put up his hand to steady it.
The preacher lifted bis small Bible, Slips nf white

sinried forward and then slopped; the man und the boy
reseated themselves and looked up at liim. lie opened

"I have but one more," be snld, wiib n perceptible
tremor of ibe voice, '-but it is a beautiful one to close
wiih. If Christ will forgive us our great transgressions,
how much mure should we forgive one another the small
trespasHes ngainst us. Paul says, 'And be ye kind one to

God, for Christ's sake, hath forgiven yon.' "
Ilu closed the Bible slowly. Kor n few moments the
tension was unbroken; then a woman on the front bench
caught her breath sharply and dabbed her eyes nervously
Willi a (otlon glove. A hig blue shirled fellow in one of
the windows jumped down and walked away into lbe
"Let us sing 'There Is a Fountain.' I'm sure you all

The little congregation rose and anng with spirit. When

"If Brother Oilman will lead us we will have onr elos-

Tbe preacher spoke quickly and played nervously with
bis watch guard.
A while haired man in tbe next to the last seat rose to
hi> feet. His smile fell upon the people like a benediction. He was so feeble tbat he leaned on the back of a
bench as he stood,
"Had, don't ye reckon we'd better go?" whispered the
boy in the pew behind bim.
"In a minute." was ibe reply. "I wanter hear him.
He's the riirht kind, he is."

There was n moment's silence, broken by the sound c,
footsteps in the aisle. But none of the bowed beads wua
••|,i,rd. we would forgive one another our trespasses*, we
wmild bear one another's burdens so far as we arc able,
but the burden of guilt and sin we lay at Thy feet alone,

upon the promise timt Thou wilt deliver us from evil."
Tbe sweet voice quavered and broke. The boy hi the
back seat sobbed audibly, The man beside him laid a
trembling band affectionately on bis shoulder.
Suddenly something cold snapped on tbe wrist. He
looked up, half dusted. The hoy started to his feet. They
were surrounded l,y a group of men—eager, alert, curious
-ami close beside tbem, tbe delicate fingers still at tbe
handcuffs, was the preacher. The white haired mnn turned

1 UY THE OLD MAN.        *
The editorial convention held at
Edmonton on Thursday and Friday
of last week was the best session
since the organization of the Alberta
and Eastern British Columbia Press
association. The newspaper men of
Edmonton and Strathcona are prhice^
when it comes to entertaining visitors, and the ladies know how to do
Ihrir part and do it well. The at-
tcndaiiiT was Ihe largest of any session held and lhe work done the most
profitable. The association was tor-
tunate in bolilg able to listen to addresses by Lord Northcliiie, the
greatest journalist of the present age,
proprietor ol tho Daily Mail ol London, England, und many other publications. Lord Northcliiie is a practical newspaper man and is better
known in the newspaper world as
Alfred Harmsworth. lie started in
life with the assistance of his wife
nil n small publication, and although
he is sli'l a young man he is worth
BCveral millions of dollars aud has
made it out of the newspaper business, lie is democratic in his manner, appreciative of courtesies extended lo liim aud a man amone men,
aud the members of the convention
thoroughly enjoyed what he had to
sav. The Hon. Frank Oliver, a
member of the Dominion cabinet, wbo
learned io use profanity in driving an
ox leam from Winnipeg to Edmonton
in early days, tbe pioneer newspaper
man nf the west, gave an address
that was full of meat and most valu-1
ab'e lo every member of the proles-1
slon present. When Frank Oliver,
stalled tlie Bulletin it was about tho
si'e of a postage stamp and thc es-!
tahlishmont has now developed into
one of the lamest printing plants inj
Western Canada. We only wish that]
wo had tho space to Bay the uood j
words that nre comlnc to the newspaper men and the ladies of Edmonton, and if WO were to write an
epitaph for all of them,
or        any one of        them.
W0 would slmnly write "Ood Bless
the Best." There was nothing lrft
undone that would please nnd entering either lhe Indies or gentlemen in
the    party.      Mr. .tannings, of    the

Journal, is a royal entertainer aud
.how he did take care uf tho boys,
lie was on deck all the time, a
thorough gentleman and a man whom
everybody was pleased to meet and
whom tliey will never forget. Mr.
Walts was another who exercised
himself to make it pleasant for the
newspaper men, and his wile, well
kiiown over Canada as "Peggy," one
of the brightest women that we have
had the pleasure of meeting, uud
whose contributions to her husband's
,-aper and other publications in Canada have given her a reputation that
any individual might be proud of.
The ladies ol Edmonton did all in
their power to make the visit of the
lady members of the convention a
pleasant one. They know how to
entertain and as long as the members
of the association live they will never
forget the kindness ol the ladies of
Edmonton. Tbey were considerate,
ihey were good in every act that
ihey performed and words fail to express an adequate opinion ol their
hospitality. Edmonton is a great
town, and yet it has not reached the
lirst milestone of its future prosperity, lt is lo be the center of a vast
territory, in fact a grand domain
that will prove richer than any optimist has ever dreamed of. Every
railway in Canada is heading for Edmonton, and Edmonton's growth
during thc next ten ytars will be
simply marvelous. From Macleod to
Calgary and Irom Calgary to Ed-|
monlon the agricultural conditions
are a revelation to mankind. Hiding
on the train one can see for miles
and miles as far as the eye can reach,
lields of grain that means In harvest
hundreds and hundreds of thousands
of dollars. In hamlets o! twelve or
fifteen bouses even, there stands at
the railroad tracks monuments o!
prosperity in thc way of great elevators erected for thc purpose of taking
care of thc wonderful crop ol grain
this year and the years to come.
Land that was used for grazing only
and supposed to be worthless for any
other purpose, is now making
wealthy men of poor farmers. Alberta is going to he a great country
and the tillers of thc soil in that
province arc coming into their own.
Edmonton in the north, Calgary in
the center and Lethbridge tn the
south, are going to be great cities,
the result of thc development ol the
rich lands of that country. All of
the prosperity for Alberta means the
increased prosperity for British Columbia. The great crops of that
province means greater demand for
llritish Columbia products. That
means a greater Fernie, a greater
Crnnbrook, a greater Nelson, and increased prosperity throughout all tne
interior of the province. OI the
thousands who will visit Alberta,
there are many ot them who will also
como to British Columbia, and this
province will reap a benefit. The
association, in the election ol its
chief olliccrs, displayed enmmemlahle
wisdom, and also in the selection of
the next place for meeting. W. A.
Buchanan, M.P.P., and editor and
manager ot the Lethbridge Herald,
was elected president. A better man
for tlie position could not have been
named. "Buck" Is recognized as one
of the best newspaper men in the
west, and the fact that he has been
elected ns president ol the association nnd that thc next meeting -will he
held at his town, insures another big
success. In the re-election of IL A.
Elton as secretary, means energy and
enthusiasm w-hen the time for rustling
comes next year. We would like to
sny more about that meeting* We
vou Id like to say something more
about the kindness shown to every
visitor present. We would like to
sav more about the good work performed by the members. But what
s the use. The mreting was one of
thc best, the people of Edmonton will
never be foreotten and the ladies o!
that city will always he remembered.
of this section of the country, as thc
coal lields to thc cast are the greatest on the American continent today.
It will be impossible, with all thc
good fortune that the people may
have, to meet thc increasing demand
for fruit und vegetables. Many
people do not realize what the future
ol this country is bound to be, hut
those who do are thc ones who will
reap thc harvest in the years to
come. East Kootenay will be a
Garden ot Eden and those who look
to the soil for sustenance and wealth
will be amply repaid. Tho wheat
lands ure all right, thc corn lands of
the States are all right, but the un-
paralelled opportunities of the productive lands around Cranbrook, where
the man with small money and great
energy, can make such a success in a
year and a fortune in live years,
naturally should attract thc attention).]
of the world. It is no longer a
question as to results, it is no longer
a matter of experiment, the fair has
shown that thc country can deliver
the goods. The readers of the Herald can depend upon what is said
and if they arc wise they will get
busy and secure land in this district
without any delay. Ten acres here,
properly cultivated, will produce
more in cash than 160 acres in ordinary farm land. What is thc use?
Oct busy and take opportunity by
the [orelock. Come to Cranbrook.
The fair this year was one that demonstrated to the people tbat East
Kootenay is a country that has a
groat future. The display ol vegetables, fruits and grain were of the
character that left no doubt in the
minds of those present that this was
> great country ami that, a few acres
of ground would give' any Individual
nn independent fortune. What ts

William Percy Wall and Harry
Augustine were sentenced to the penitentiary for five years last Saturday
evening by Judge Voung. Both had
admitted their guilt in tbo St. Denis
robbery, when ^1,000 was takeu from
the strong room of thc steamer. All
but $1,000 was recovered by the police, and holh prisoners assured the
court that they had no idea where tlm
missing cash was located. On Suuday evening, following thc sentence,
llm self-coutessed robbers, in tbo custody of Constable l.trk, sailed for
Vancouver, en route to New Westminster.
■ Itidge Voung, in the course ol imposing sentence on, Wall, delivered
some wholesome advice and ms-Ut
comment which was very mued to the
point. lie was surprised, he said,
to find hefore him a young man of
WalPs appearance, uml whose evident
knowledge of thc world should have
prevented him from participating in
such a crime. The fact that he was
drunk at the time, cou,dn't be accepted as an excuse. His honor also
expressed his surprise at the circumstances under which such a largo
amount of treasure was conveyed.
There should be a sufer place to store
$25,000 in currency, than the so-called
strong room on board the St. Denis.
"The public," concluded .Judge
Young, umust bo protected. In a
country like this where the principal
means of travel is by water, it is
doubly imperative that passengers,
and in fact everybody traveling
should he protected. In this particular case you belonged to the ship's
company. Instead of being loyal to
your employers, you took advantage
<>r an opportunity to betray whatever
trust had been put in yon."
Sent-ence was then imposed, and a
few minutes later, a similar setenco
was given Augustine.

Dear Sirs: Wc aro writing you bo-
causo of ii gravo Injustice that has
been iliitic our cmpluyers, The Fca-
imilvs company, who manufacture thc
I'.nhiilv Railroad King brand ot
union mafic overalls.
Some misguided and misinformed
union men havo becn starting, what
really amounts to a boycott against
Pcahoilys overalls in certain sections.
■ lust wlmt has been the cause ot this
we cannot imagine, unless perhaps it
is one of two reasons.
First, it may be that some of tho
boys who are anxious to work tor the
premium wiiieh has been offered tor
lliv Highland Park home for aged and
disabled union railroad employes by a
certain American manufacturer, In
their zeal mav think that they cannot
secure lliis same contribution through
tin- Penhofly overalls, which many ot
them have worn with satisfaction for
a lung lime. Now as far as this
goes, tlic I'c.ibody company have ol-
fi'ii-il lo redeem all tickets taken oft
their overalls or coats by union men
at tin. rate of five cents per ticket,
double the amount offered by anyone
rise, iliis money to go to the secretaries nt the loeal sending in the ttck-
ctB nml to be used by the local either
for their local sick benefit (und or as
lite local's contribution to thc  home
in Highland Park.
The second reason may be the confusion of the name "Peabodys Kailroad King" with a brand of overalls

While crossing the bay from Dundee
to Hiikhill, Scotland, one afternoon
ntly, a small yacht n-uveyiug
seven passengers was sunk, and two
of Uiem were drowned. All went
well until the craft suddenly iraslied
Into a submerged obstacle As u result of tire impact, a hole wns knocked into llie hot torn of the craft, ami
the water rushed in, causing her to
heel over, and ultimately sink. The
men clung to the sinking yacht, hut
the force of the current was such that
oik' Craig lost his hold aud was carried down thu river. At this juncture Stewart, the owner of the boat,
displayed conspicuous bravery. Ile
swam towards Uraig and succeeded in
bringing him back to the yacht.
Craig's strength, however, was' uot
equal to the task of holding ou
against the current. Un two subsequent occasions he was swept oil
the sinking hull, and Stewart twice
repealed his action of swimming after Craig and rescuing him trom
drowning. While Stewart was engaged for the third time in taking
Craig hack to comparative safety two
passengers, Duncan and Marford slipped oft, and sank, Stewart made a
search for them, hut it was of no
avail. Fortunately for the survivors,
the pleasure steamer Kinfauns Castle,
hove in sight, aud effected a rescue.
A narrow escape from disaster was
recently experienced hy the Leeds Artillery Territorials on the treacherous
stretches of the evil Pilling Sands.
The Third Battery had been outi all
night defending a position between
Blackpool and Fleetwood, anid was
making its way hack to eamp when
an order to evade an imaginary attacking force was given. The battery made a long detour, coming
cross the treacherous sands, apparently unaware ol the dangers, and
Ignorant of the fact that a racing
tide was rapidly gaining upon them
The hundred men and horses with
guns, which form the battery, came
giblhiping along, and suddenly made
tho discovery that the tide was
rapi'dly cuttiog them off from the
shore. A strong wind sprang up,
and brought the water shoreward at
a .quicker rate. Rather than abandon
the guns, it was decided to take the
horses out, and employ them all on
each gun separately. By these
means the guns were dragged shore-
wands, hut the tide had filled up deep
channels near the shore, and in one
strong current one gun, with its men
and horses, was nearly carried away.
Attention was diverted, for a moment the other day both from Channel flights and Channel swims, to
tlte latest method ot crossing the
Knglish Cnannel. This was by
means or a plank, and the adventurer
a man named Westlake, failod in his
first attempt, but only regards it as
a sort of trial trip, and instead of
bein« discouraged proposes to make
another effort. Westlake started on
his voyage from Dover, where the
sea front was crowded. The plank
was two feet wide, 18 inches long,
and 2 inches thick. It was fitted
with a mast and sail, and tilie oflven-
lurous voyager also carried a pair
of oars to assist his progress. Two
empty oil drums cave buoyancy to
the nlank. Westlake took his cra/.y-
lonking craft across the bav and out
of tne eastern entrance of the naval
harbor. Tn tho eveninn* he returned
to Dover, having been -driven out of
his course by lhe tide and a breeze.
He was unaccompanied. Westlake
states he has lieen a sailor, and once
snent a nicht on a plank in tne At-
'antir wtom his shin was wrecked, nnn)
only he and one other member of the
crew were saved.

To the many and varied duties ol
the police has been added one ot a
strangely pathetic nature which is
wrapped up in the dramatic death
from grief of a Grimsby septuagenarian, Francis Jeffrey. The old man
awoke one morning recentlv to find
his aged wife dead by his side. Some
nights later a constable on duty near
his home heard the old man hail him
from the bedroom window. The policeman entered the house and found
Jeffrey alone. The septuagenarian
stated feebly that he felt he was dying. Seeing that the old man was
Ki'iminely 111 the constable sent f--r a

his death was near at hand ttie
constable sat down, and after living
him ihe address ot his relatives he
dictated his will, finishing by creating
the policeman trustee of the estate
and impressing on him the duty of
carrying out fcesfautor's wishes. Having, complete-d this task the old man
died, despite the effort-; of tlw notice

A dispute has arisen between the
I'lulton Board of Guardians and the
ehief constable of Somerset regarding
an account tit tourpence rendered -to
the board for the subsistence of a
pauper awaiting trial. Thu board
consulted counsel, who held that tlie
liuardians were nut liable to pay.
The local government board imprcss-
nl the same opinion, while tho Secretary of State declared that the
payment should lie borne by the police fund. The chief constable states
lhat if the board refuses payment he
shall refuse to deal with pauper
cases in future. The hoard at a recent meeting decided unanimously to
refuse to pay the amount.
Tlu- story of an extraordinary escapade of a lunatic adrift comes trom
Grimsby. As the tug pioneer Was
entering the llumher the uther day
the lookout sighted an open boat
drifting rapidly out to sea on the
ebb lido. An old man was seen seated patiently in it. He had neither
oars nor sails, and was being quietly
carried out to open water. When
hailed and asked what he was doing
he vaguely replied. "Looking for
work." Tlic tin; took the craft
tow, and mi reaching Grimsby .handed
lhe man over to the police. He
proved to be a Norwegian scaiman,
named Martin Muosen. He had stolon the boat from its moorings in
Hull nnd had drifted fully twenty
miles in it on thc receding tide.
One morning recently a fire broke

came as a great shock, us Dr. Lyle

this mooning to the effect that Mr.

as to cause alarm, thougn he had had
a recurrence of an attack of indigestion.
Dr. Lyle's bulletin indicated a dis-

during which the master of Ardcn
iluuse has been reported dead a doz-

those about him that official information alone cau prevent the circulation of such rumors by irresponsible
persons for the purpose of influencing

nis report to the newspaper men at

after 9 o'clock.

Tommy Soulh's Swift Swiped
by Singh
(Held over from last issue.),
Last Saturday evening one Hajara
Singh, one of the breed of Sikhs
working around in the lumber
camps, fell in love with thc Swift
nicycle belonging to Tommy South, as
it lay in repose up against his ton-
serial post. It looked good to
Hajara, who, after caressing it
drunkenly, swiped it down thc alleyway back of the Manitoba hotel and
emerged near the Canadian Bank ol
Commerce, where he was noticed by
the Argus eyed minions of the law.
('['his phrase is registered as copyright.)
iu a while thc bike was missed and
after putting two and two together,
Dune. McLean got ou thc trail and
lauded Hajara and his swag in the
cells. Hajara was drunk. It appears to be a sort ot caste mark Ior
ihi! Sikhs to get as nearly paralyzed
drunk every time tbey come to the
eity us their means will permit.
In due time Hajara Singh came up
hefore the police court and no mere
line eould wash his guilt away. The
police magistrate gave him thirty
days, turban and all, to be devoted
lo tbe beautillcation ot iho city
streets by means ot a rake and a
wheelbarrow. This class of work
may lift his Aryan soul to higher
things, and in the meantime it will
serve as an objeet bsson tor the rest
of thc Hindoos within the gates.
Love, pathos, treachery and retribution, with a final happy outcome,
are the main elements of "In Wyoming," a breezy, Idcalic comedy drama

bright sunny summer on a ranch near

Cranbrook   and   Moyie have     had
many a hard tussle for the loeal supremacy on the-diamond with the ie-1
suit that Moyie has, if anything,    a
shaile   the   better    ot tbe argument.*
This was even a gall and wormwood
to the Cranbrook boys, so they gathered round them sundry good men and I
true    giants of   tlte baseball realm,'
.Mid called on gallant little Moyie to
eome on and get beaten.     They were
ready enough    t-o eome on, tout   they
certainly    did take a deal of heating
and took it in a most sportsmanlike
manner.     When the game was   over
it was    over, and the men who contended as if their Uvea depended on   i
.n tlie field, met in the street as  the
best ot friends.
Tuesday's game was a curious one.
Moyie batted first and were retired
by N. S. Nelson, one, two, three.
Not a man got to first base. Loud
and continued applause and frantic
rooting greeted this touch of Cranbrook's prowness. Then u^ came1
our batters and they batted and battered that ball till they rolled up
three runs of the best sort. Moyie
thereafter could not get through
Nelson's slants and drops, nor could
Cranbrook do a thing with thc south
paw the Moyie crowd had pitching
for them. The game ended three to
nothing in favor of Cranbrook. It
was worthy of note that Nelson in
thc 5th innings put out three men
with the first three balls he pitched,
all being either caurfit in the field or
out at first base. By the way, Wyn-
dell, of Wyeliffe, did tlw same in the
•*amc against Sand Point, and hy thc
same token he played a dashing game
In the series against Moyie.
Eneas Harding Small, of the Cosmopolitan hotel, has every reason to
be proud of the bunch of boys he got
together to battle for Cranbrook,
and it is due to him to say that the
ball games on Tuesday and Wednesday
were marked features, and most enjoyable ones, ot a celebration that
needed a few head liners here and
Wednesday's game was one for blood
and gore. Moyie, captained by E.
J. Kamm, vowed a vow to win and
■,'alli-d up their rooters with every
noise-making devilment that the
ueart of a rooter could wish tor
rhey came by special train and
swarmed over the ground with megaphones, cow bells, fish horns, motor
ear horns and thc lungs of brass. But
it availed nothing. Down they went
to defeat but by the narrow margin
of five to four in favor of Cranbrook.
Kor three innings no tally was registered by either team, and in the
second half of the fourth Cranbrook
found Crlssler tor three runs, and
thereupon tbe rooting found an early
death as far as the megaphones and
tlw res-t of it were concerned. In the
fifth «ne more went to Cranbrook.
The next two innings were blanks for
both sides. The eighth brought a
streak of disaster tor Nelson who got
touched up for three runs. In this
innings there were some beautiful
,ilays, notably when Sully picked up
it third and whipped the ball across
to Thompson at first, nailing the
runner. Then Thompson let out to
Lunberg at second and he put it all
over the late occupant ot first base.
it was an elegant dot-trie play. Sully
started it with a rare hit of judgment and it must here be said that
Su'ly did really brilliant work in
both games. In the first he hit a
7all about twenty yards bevond thc
;onl posts down the field and, unfortunately having no one on bases he
tried for a home run and failed by
incites. It was the longest hit ever
seen on the ground. In that same
•iirbth innings Chester Cox barely
missed a llv after running over twen-
tv-flvc yards to his lett t-o trv for it.
Wvndell made a splendid catch in the
after darting back a long distance to
Tet it. Between Kamm and tbo
Movie pitcher a bad error was made
when Cranhrook came to hat in tho
same period. One run got over fnr
our lads,   leaving the score Ave    to
three against Movie, ln the ninth
innings it was still the game ot either
team and the excitement was intense.
Movie scored one run and with two
men on bases thc batter was caught
by Chester Cox in the sun field and
ail was over. Cranbrook jive, Moyie
four. Let it he said that Moyie
played a splendid tame and fought a
battle against odds that were not
perhaps, entirely fair.

Mrs. .Instin Masson, weighing lour
hundred pounds, who waa discharged
Irom the female jail yesterday, will

to walk she was placed in a cab by
Ihree or lour of the Jail guards yes-
lorday and sent to thc home ol some
of her friends or alleged relatives, but
:ione of thifii would have her.
The carter In despair ol getting rid
of his fare, took her back to the jail
but as her term had finished there
and there were no commitment
papers, she could not be taken ln.
It was impossible for the woman to
••ft out of the cab and she waa so
heavy that the cabman could not
move her. In his predicament the
cabman drove the woman last night
to the Praip strecct police station,
hut he was advised to tako her to police headquarters, where, with the aid
of live policemen, tlte woman was finally taken from the cab and brought
inlo the corridors ol the cells, where
