I   OBSERVATIONS?
£ HV THK OLD MAN. »
^••StiMaMMn-MMiMMtttttP
Prioi to tht- last fire in Fernie,
.\rmsirong Dean, president of the
Olobe Insurance company, of Ite^-ina,
Sask., personallj and with the as-
slstaiiCQ ol the* local agent, did coii-
slderable business in Kernie Aftet
ihf fire it developed that, ibe Olobe
company was not able financially
io meet its liabilities, and us a ru-
■suli those in Fernie who luui taken
mil, policies in that company, were
liiosers, a musl deplorable condition
ni affairs under the circumstances. A
charge was laid against Mr. Dean,
•>1 oiitaintng monev undei false pretenses, and the accused was brought
io Kernie from Kegina and tried bo-
fore -Indue Wilson. .1. A. Harvey,
k.i'., had charge ol ihe nrosecutlem,
ami ft. A. McDonald, K.C, was thc
leading attorney for the defence. Tlie
result of t-he trial was the acquittal of Mr. Dean and in commenting on the case the Kernie Ledger
stoops so low as to print the fol-
lowlnp Insinuating criticism ol Judge
Wilson:
JUSTICE.
Justice—What lives have been sacrificed on thine altar! How humanity
lias struggled for thee!
The Britisher has looked in bygone
limes upon the judges on tho bench
with reverence auel awe, believing
Lhat he would get justice and restl-
nn ion at their hands-
Hut oow what does he find in Canada—Justice? No—a thousaed
times no. If you belong to a few
secret fraternal orders and happen to
Ih? on the right side in politics, you
ean commit any crime in tbe
• aieodar, witb the certain knowledge
that- when you come before the
[tench, where justice is supposed to be
dispensed, vou will he acquitted
A la IhNin and   the Olobe.
The Herald hardly feels that it is
necessary to say a word in tbe defence of Judge Wilson in bis judicial
capacity. Since his amWntment as
county judge, and few judges have
bad more cases before ihem in tbe
same period ol time, be bas been
reversed only once, which is a
marvelous record. Bv lawyers and
laymen alike, Judge Wilson is looked
iinon as one of the ablest jurists in
the province, and one who bas administered the functions of bis im-
rtortant office in a manner that has
been absolutely above criticism.
Furthermore, Judge; Wilson is not a
member of any secret society, never
met the man Dean prior to tbe trial
and politically has belonged to a different, panv than the lawyer of the
defence, and the Herald feels thnt it
-.hould not have said even this much
bv way of explanation- When a
newspaper resorts to sucb methods -\s
the above to give vent to the
Kidene of the editor against a man
like Judge Wilson* it is time for the
nowets of the province to take a
hand to protect, the dignity ol its
judiciary. Unfortunately Judge Wilson, holding the position of count v
.ludge, is placed in an entirely different posilion than that of a supreme
judge ami Is unable to sav a word to
protect his own honor. Fortunately
the people ol the Kootenays understand the situation, and sueh a diatribe as printed in the Ledger will
be taken at, its par value and yet,
it iik such work that towers the
-liiirditnl of [ournallsm in Western
Canada
The nartbquakos at Vancouvei  and
nt Bellingham. Washington, arc get-
tlng too close to home for comfort. We don't mind a cyclone nr
a lili/./aid. tint we dn object to the
earthquake.
For the' satisfaction ol many inquirers wo desire to state tbat thc
banana crop is all right. It is
true tbat for a few days there was
a possibility of our banana ranch
heing frozen, but investigation bas
developed tbe fact that everything is
all right and that the promise for a
full crop next vear is better tban
ever.
The promoters of the ice palace at
Montreal bave decided to call it oil.
The people of Canada lost no time
in calling off Kipling's "Our Lady of
the Snows" and to be consistent
they.should   call ofi the iee palace.
Cranbrook was fortunate this year
in having good men named on both
municipal tickets, but tbe people
generally agree tbat Uie old council have done all in their power tor
the advancement ot tbe city's interest and were satisfied to have tbem
remain in control-
Honesty in municipal politics Is a
mighty good policy.
Cranbrook never bad a bunch of
men who worked harder for the best
interests of tbe community than
those who made   up   tke old council
and   tbeir   re-election is  a deserved
compliment to tbeir efforts.
The Herald desires to join with
the people of Cranbrook in oomnli-
menting Mayor Fink on his reflection by acclamation. Mr. Fink bad
do desire to be a candidate, in fact
he was very anxious to retire, but
at the urgent request ol the people-
he finally consents to In-come a candidate aiKl as a re-sult was elected
without any opposition- Mayor
Fink has sacrificed a lot of valuable
time for the interests of tbe city
tiuring the past year, not only as
mavor, but as chief of tbe fire department.. During the coming year
he will do as be haB done in tbe
past—everything he can lor tbe advancement, of Cranbrook—and tbo
people of Cranhrook feel mighty
proud of "Our .lake."
My the way, it might be well to
keep on boosting Cranbrook.
The Herald will still persist in its
policy of not allowing any man to
vent his personal spite through tbo
columns of this paper. No personalities of auy nature are allowed in
tho Herald.

The C.P.lt. are arranging lor extensive Improvements in Cranbrook. This
will mean the expenditure of main
thousands of dollars, which will
prove a good   thing (or this city.
Some newspapers in the east are
worrying because Montreal is going
Lo hold a winter carnival with an ice
palace attached. It seems to us
that there is no kick ooming. Don't
Ihese papers know that, in a great
big country like Canada there are
all kinds of weather in the winter
time from the hyperborean Montreal
kind to that of the banana belt,
which is   the finest on earth.
The number of registered letters
from Canada to Kngland has in-
creasod eighty per cent. This is a
better indication of the tie that
binds thc two countries than all the
Hag waving that could ho done from
now until   thu crack of doom.
The year 1908 has been a big onu
for Cranbrook and East Kootenay.
It is not too late to start the
new year right by paying the Herald
what you owe.
The British press is just now dotting a good deal of space to tho
'Englishman in Canada." One pub
licatiou called "Joba Bull" "roasts"
Canadians ns to tbeir treatment of
Englishmen as follows:
"The phrase "Word of Honor"
is one fot which unfortunately,
there is no equivalent in tbe Canadian language, so, of course,
we must not blame tbe Canadian,
who completely , fails tn understand such matters.
lt comes rather rough, however,
cm the new English settler it be
is tool enough to believe a man
when he makes a promise. Before
long, however, the Old Country*
man learns bis lesson aad be-
lieves no one at all, dlstrusU even
his own brother, and returns te
England ultimately a Buspioious
man (or the rest ot bis days,
which is perhaps as well.
All's fair in love, war, or Can*
ada."
The Saturday Sunset, of Vancouver
commenting on the above says;
"Of course, tbe inferenoe is tbat
Canadians as a rule regard tbe
English new-comers as fair prey.
No doubt numbers ol Englishmen have boen done brown in
Canada by Canadians, as not a
lew remittance men may be able
io testify, but in ray observation
lhe meanest and most cold-blooded frauds which have been perpetrated upou Englishmen in the
West havo been worked by otber
Englishmen.
In this province I have made
somo personal observations of
this. It is not many months
sinee this   paper    put the. kibosh
 i fraudulent fruit land scheme
in the Nicola Valley, operated by
an Englishman and Ior Englishmen. The methods o( this -gentleman were boautlfullv simple, and
could have been adopted onlv bv
.in  Imi .'.I's-Miian wlio knew England
and Englishmen. Moro land
fraudn have been par pet rated upon
Englishmen by BngUflhmeu in
British -'olumbiu (ban by any
other class of men in lhe province.
All over British Columbia monuments of English mining engineering follv aud English promoters'
frauds, which bave cost English
investors hundreds of thousands
of pounds, are to be found. Few
if any of these foolish or knavish schemes were initiated or promoted hy Canadians.
The pathetic part ot many of
these fraudulent (teals is tbat tbe
innocent investors chose to trufrt-
one of tbeir own kind rather titan
a Canadian, and were therefore
moro easily victimized.
Of course, we have many Englishmen of tbe better and mote substantial type, men in whom are
embodied all the qualities of
honor and business integrity
witb which we usually associate
the English business man. At
tbe same time we have tbe otber kind who have neither honor
nor integrity, and when '"John
Hull* undertakes to represent all
Canadians ae deficient In these
qualities, neit defense impels us to
indicate to that mendacious
periodical the fact that the majority of Englishmen, in British
Columbia at   least, who havo sul-
TWQ FIRES
CRANBKOOK ESCAPES A CON-
FLAQUATION BY THE PROMPT
ACTION OF THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
Ou .Monday evening last at about
7 o'clock a fire was discovered in the
premises of the Cranhrook Co-operative company's store. Tbe origin ot
the tire is unknown, but ia supposed
to liave been caused by an overheated stove. In a very tew seconds alter tbo alarm waa rung In the
fire department was on the scene
und magnificent work waa done by the
department under the personal di
notion of Mayor Pink. Owing to
theit efforts and in spite of tbe lact
that the weather waa cold and that
the water waa freering on the
building as soon as it struck it, tbe
Uami", were confined to the rear
end of the building and eventually extinguished and thus what might
have been a very serious fire was
avoided. Too much praise cannot be
mcetod out to the boys ot the
fire brigade Ior the excellence of
their work. Tbe loss at present
cannot be estimated.

QREEN'S.
AT     DR
A slight blaie took place last
Thursday evening at the home of Dr.
Uretn on Baker Hill. Only & small
imount oi damage was done, however, due    largely   to   the    prompt
tion   eft   the fire department.
SUGGESTS IMPROVEMENTS
Poplar Clove, Wyeliffe, B.C.
Editor Cranbiook Herald;
Dear Sir: 1 suppose this will be
loo late for this week's issue, that
is as lar as my suggestions -helping
anv will go; but 1 am on a visit ut
ihe above address and just imagine
onlv about- fourteen miles from Cranbrook aud only receiving the Herald
by yesterday's mail. I wish you
could see how Mr. Tisdale in making
his larm come on, though his stocie
ib only small as yet, still it is all
nourishing famously and does him
great credit for only ten months
work. Be-st of all he and his estimable wife are the best of folks to stay
with to recruit. I note in last
week's issue you are asking what we
would do if wc were editor. First
and foremost 1 guess 1 should want
to t«ar my hair at least three times
a dav, but as I suppose you have
learnt patience ere tbis. 1 will pass
on and say I think if you numbered
each page and printed the date ol
issue also on each page; it would be
a decided improvement. Also might
1 suggest a ladles column once
more. I know so many ladies who
read the Herald, and who amuse
me by saying there is no news iu
the same. Now it they would only
take the trouble they would always
find something worth' reading it tn-y
the "Dreamers" column, which 1
missed very much in last week's issue, but I suppose wc must let the
voters havo their iania-s. However,
don't you think t*w you have a
lady on your staff something Might
be done in the way ol a special
column for the ladies.
Witb  best   wishes   (or  a   bright,
hapnv and prosperous New Year.
I conclude and remain
Yours sincerely,
Isa Agnes Smith,
Otherwise  an   old admirer   ot the
Herald.

Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER.
There is an oM lecrad that runs ..
this wise: At creation's dawn an angel came down to earth, and belore
returning looked ahout for something to carry back to heaven- Hiere
were three things tbat attracted
the attention ol the whHe-winged
messenger—a bouquet of sweet flowers
that had been gathered from one ot
earth's fair and blooming gardens,
thc smile of a little baby that had
been playing witb a sunbeam, nnd
mother's love. These three the
Hs carried away, but when it
reached the nearly nates of paradise
the (lowers had withered—the baby's
smile had vanished. Only the mother's love remained the same, and bein* found im. mire a-nd eternal as t-he
waters tliat flowed hy God's throne,
all the angels that rnncwd ahovi
exclaimed in unison: "There is nothing on earth pure enough for heaven
but a mother's lore!" This was *,
tribute containing a sublime ihnupht
And through all the ages it has
been human experience that the an-
gcls referred to in that legend were
not over extravagant in tho messago
which they passod out through the
ot>en windows of the "many mansions" along the hanks of the
"Itiver of Gold."
A voung man presents an engagement- rinu, to a lovely girl he had
won with the remark, "I am poor,
but vou manage as mother does and
we'll get along nicely." The younn
lady investigated how "mother man-
aged/1 She was a wife, a mother,
a housekeeper, a business manager, a
hi md girl, a laundress, p, seamstress
n mender and pntcher, a dairy maid,
,i cook, n nurse, a kitchen earthier,
and a general slave for a family    ol
five. "She works from 'ive in tbe
morning until ten at night, and I almost wept when 1 kissed her hand—
H was so hard ami wrinkled, and
corded and unklssed. When 1 saw
her polishing the stove, carrying big
buckets of water and great armfuls
Of wood, often splitting the latter,
my heart failed me, and it is needless
to say tho ring was returned." If
the wife must drudge, lot the husband share it. li she must cook lut
him carry the fuel, if she must scrub
let him carry the water, if she must,
churn let him tuilk tbe cows. The
girl did what every girl ot sense aud
wisdom would do.
We always feel complimented when
we aro token to the family sitting
room instead oi tlte parlor when we
call upon our neighbors, and still
more pleased if we aro given the
privilege ■of going where our hostess
is engaged, if at the time at our call
she happens to lie busy. With what
pleasure du wo remember the homes
where we are welcomed almost as
members uf the family, feeling free
to ku to everv part of the house.
What a dollght il is to visit where
nur advcnii is altogether -,i source of
pleasure and where we do not feel
lhat mir hostess is anxiously thinking '"What shall we eat and what
shall we drink?"
GOOD AND UAD MOTHERS.
Tlio difference between good and
bad mothers is so vast and so far-
reaching that it is no exaggeration
to say that the good mothers of this
generation are building 'he homes
of the next generation, and the bad
mothers aro building the prisons. For
out of families nations arc made; and
if 'the father ho the head and the
hands of a family, the mother is the
heart-. No ollice in the world is
honorable as hers, no priesthood
holy, no influence so strong and last-
inn. Unselfish love is the mother!
Cheerful obodiencp in the children!
In whatever home these forces aro
constantly operatives, that home cannot be a failure. And mothcr-lovo fs
not of the right kind, nor of the
highest trend, unless it compels this
obedience. The assertion that affectionate firmness and even wholesome chastisement is unnecessary
with our advanced civilization, is
specious and dancerous. The children of today have as many rudimentary vices as they had in the days of
the patriarchs; as a general thing
they are self-willed and inclined to
evil from their cradles; greedy without a blush, and ready to lie as
soon as they discover the use of
language. A good mother does not
shut her eyes to these facts; she accepts her ohild as imperfect, and
trains it with never-ceasing love and
care for its highest duties. She
does not call impertinence "smartness," nor insubordination "'high
spirit." nor selfishness "knowing how
take care of itself." nor lying and
dishonesty sharpness.
OPPORTUNITIES.
Let us not wait for chances fot doing good to come to us, but go
iui to meet them. Too many beautiful opportunities escape us otherwise. As charit) begins nt home, so
should love. We don't
care much for either
the charity or love- Uiat would leave
its nearest to want for duty or affection, and go out into the world to
work. We find it a delightful plan
to make i-ach one of my homufolks
happy about some one thing each day
of our life—plan little surprises for
their delight, do little deeds for
brighten a dull hour, or congratulate them uiHin sume achievement of their own-
Of one thing we are certain, we
are too chary of our commendations,
too stincrv of oui praise, and, alas!
too In vish of our blame. "Thoughts
are things *' and words, if true, are
their manifestations. How often
have we thought favorably of many
things, yet said no word. For all
such sins of omission we must ever
sutler drt-p regret. Huw easy it
would have been to bave said, "Tbat
is so beautiful!" or "How well you
do!"
We think of things like these when
our opportunities are flown forever,
when the dear head wc lovod lies low
—when tbe brave hands are still.
If we had only spoken, the way
must have been more bright, the.
labor less   dull and wearing1
Parents often sav, "J live for m)
children." They should do more
than that—tbey should live with their
children, letting their bovs and girls
feel that their interests arc their
parents' interests also. In no other
way can fathers and mothers keep so
firm a hold on thc yount lives. Let
the children have their pleasures.
Train them to be obedient, neat, and
to some extent orderly, and then let
them havo all tbe fun their busy
brains can devise, so long as it
harmless and Innocent. Long after
thev have grown to manhood and womanhood, even after they have families of their own, thev will look
back to tbeir childhood as the brightest oasis of their lire.-;. Mother will
be thought of as the dearest woman
and father as thc best man.

•Clever work by two amateur detectives was described in the Course of
an action hoard in the Dublin Four
courts recently. Patrick Cleary was
suinc .Mrs. Sibley, as administratrix
of the late Mi. Thomas Uichard
Poulson, of EnnlsMllen, to recover
£401, alleged to he due to him for
work done and money paid on iK'half
of Mr. Poulson during his lifetime.
Cleary worked for Mr. Poulson for
twenty years, and since IMI) had acted as his bailiff. Mr. Poulson was
eighty-five, nnd a bachelor.   He lived
alone, and  Was    looked aftei   bv    Mr.
ttpd Mrs    Cleary, who never received
ant    mono] from him for    their services but rolled on a    promise       he
ni'ide in leave them something on his
death.      Hm ho died Inlcstate.    After hi--, death the Cleans turned    the
pjflOo upside down, looking for   some
1'h'ht that would lead to the discovery    of a   relative to inherit his fortune        Eventually thev came across
a letlei     dated  1849, written lo.Mi.
Poulson,     when     he   was   u   voung
tn,ii,. bt    his lather,     ln that   letter
the   fathei   mentioned another    sou,
named Oeorge,   who bad cone fo sea.
Oh ihe strength ol   this fifty-year-old
clue, Cleary seni off   his- two   vounn
sons to hunt for Oeoree.    The young
''leans    went to   Bristol nnd stayed
ihere   looking for some trace   of the
old .sailor   or   his descendants.     Mr.
Clean   mi vine their expenses.      The
bows rnnsnckwJ   the records in Bristol
nl at hist discovered    that old   Mr.
Poulson's father     hod been a head to
in one of   tho churches of the    citv.
and   thai  Ihe   brother tWrge.    men-
tloned in    the age-worn letter,     had
lefl  ,i    daughter,    who    would,    of
course,    he     a    niece   of    the dead
man and    the heiress to his     money.
Thev were told   she might   be found
in London, so from Bristol to   I .on-1
don    they went, as if    they expected
to lind one  woman among the   great
city's millions.     But thev had     the
irood luck to direct their steps to the
shtnpliuc office of a   tirm named Lod
.'ite, who turned out to be the own
ers   of the very vessel in which     old
Poulson's sailor brother Geo-rm   had
sailed in 1M».     This was a clue, and
from it    they   actually managed     to
hunt up George's daughter who   had
become Mrs. Sibley.    When Mrs. Slfc-
Icv heard of    her eood   fortune from
ibe    two    boys she was overflowing
with gratitude, and promised to   reward   them   for their trouble.     She
soon forgot ber promise, however, but.
the iurv   who   beard the oase awarded Cleary £178 as recompense.

The story of a man's sacrifice of
Ills life to save those of others comes
from England. Charles Gotts, a
well known football referee in Nor-
fnlk, allowed himself to lie crushed
lo death in a well to save his brother
an.l a boy who were working below
liim, The three, Charles ond George

Spinks.
An import-ant discovery bas been
made by the rector ol St. Lawrence, Jewry, London, E.G. A tew
weeks ago be was presented on behalf
of his church with on old painting
in a deplorable condition of dirt and
nerlect. The careful removal of the
dirt revealed an exceptionally line
dramatic masterpiece of the Spanish
school representing the dead Saviour
supported hy a draped angel, with
two child anscls at His feet and the
Virgin Mary on the background.
Further -examination showed, with tbe
help of photography, in the left hand
corner, the name of Juan Bantista
del Maw, which was, however, obviously not the master's actual
signature, but a later addition. The,
indistinct remains of the real signature In bold letters were subsequently discovered under the Saviour's foot. Juan Bantista del

early morning hours ol the Hth instant. The Calgary Daily Herald,
in its issue of the Sth, has tlie following lo snv about the late Mr.
Hall:
The death occurred this morning,
at 3 o'clock, at his residence on
Fourth street west, of Hon. -lotan S.
Hall. K.C, oi a complication of
troubles from which he has heen sul-
feriti- for a dozen years.
Mr. Hull was at one timo a very
prominent llgure in Montreal and in
tin* province of Quebec, lie was a
well-known lawyer, and took a very
active interest in politics until 111-
lii'ultli forced him to leave the arena.
When in Montreal, Mr. Hall was a
■tuber   of   thc 1cl-,iI Orni   ol   Hall.

und Mr. Wainwrifiht, of the Grand
Trunk Pacillc.
He was elected a member of the
loc.il legislature of Quebec, and soon
,fter being elected was chosen to a
losilion on He cabinet, that of provincial treasurer. Mr. Hall more
than made good in his position. At
Ihe time, be took ollice the finances
of the province were in a precarious
condition, but owing to Air. Hall's
executive ability the province salely
weathered toe storm. He made trips
io London and to Paris, and successfully negotiated a $6,000,000 loan at
, low rate of interest, thereby en-
jbling thn province to consolidate a
number ol smaller loans for which
much higher rates of interest were
!■■     -aid.
Deceased was remarkably popular
with thc p,*,.,'1,' ot Montreal. About
12 years ago be was compelled, on
account of ill-health to relinquish all
his work, both legal and political.
His health had collapsed comnletely
and his medical advisers told him
he would not live more than a few
months. His breakdown was caused
bv his activity in nniltlcal work.
Mr. Hall left Montreal and went to
Denver, from which city he came
to Calgary in 1(103, acting on a
suggestion ol .1. ,1. Yount;. Mr. Hall,
lor a year alter arriving in the city
filled the position ol editor ol the
Calgary Daily Herald. TVn he
started to practice law again, and

SPECIALIST WAS BAFFLED.
Child Tortured witb Edema
When all Else Failed Zam-Buk Cured
Her.
Once again the unequalled merit ol
Zam-Uuk as a healer ot skin disease
has been demonstrated, this time at
l.unenbure Co.. N.S.
-Mr. D. Q. Mossman, ot that place,
lys: "My little girl, now newly
three years old, when about lour
month-s of age began to be afflicted
with eczema. I consulted a specialist who did his best, lor the poor I
little thing, hut the disease baffled '
'bim, nnd after a lung trial 1 was
obliged to admit tliat his treatment
was not doing any good. Then 1
tried various remedies which were
advised by friends, but with no ,*etter
result.
Next I called in another di*eloi—
stiil the disease continued to
spread: It began in the turm oi
small spots and pustules on Hie
child's head. These increased in size
nnd diseharped. The discharge seemed to spread infection to owier parts.
1 aud bit by bit thc dist-as„d area In-
croosod until at last the poor child's
head and lace seemed to he one creat
sore.
"When thc second doctor failed to
give any relief, I was at a loss what
to do* Someone who had tried Zam-
Huk strongly advised me to rive it
a trial, and 1 did so. The first lew
applications didn't seem to -have any
effect at all, but although not apparent it must have been attacking
the very roots ot Uw disease, lor atter persevering with tto treatmot
for a little while we noted a marked
improvement. Encouraged by tbis
we continued with Zam-Buk and left
off everything else. The disease was
gradually subdued, and itching grew
less acute, sad the little one's suffering was relieved. Then tbe area ol
the sores grew less and less, aad in
the end every trace ot tbe dreadful
externa was removed. Not only so,
but there has been no scarring or
marking left to dlsffmire -the child's
face.
'There is now no trace of the
disease which causod her much suffering, balled one specialist and one
practitioner, and defied every remedy
I could obtain   save Zam-Buk."

luupo-sltion looks ho good that the
teamsters and wood-cutters uf thc
camp uiu increasing their holdings
uf stuck in the company.
One side of the last joint of casing
where the drilling bit bad constantly rubbed against it has worn
through and the whole string 1450
feet long has to be pulled and
another joint put on. Tbis may
lake some time, as they nearly pulled thc derrick in trying to lift it,
besides having tire two 100-ton hydraulic jacks lifting all they could.

Rockies, short distance east ol

lug seventy miles. It is expected
that the task will he undertaken
luring the present year and tenders
called during February. The aim ol
the reconstruction is to hetter many
points where the grades are adverse
lo eastbound trallic. This is rendered necessary by tho development ol
Ihe general eastbound trallic on tbe
line and the growth ot the Soo-
Spokane husiness which, it is expected, will be shortly pushed
through to tho coast. Another lac-
tor is the development ol the
Hosmer coal fields as, it is expected,
the prairies will be a great market
for the product ol these mines.
It is also stated that during February or March a contract wlll be
let lor the construction ol thirty
miles ou the line of tho Kootenay

ROYAL HOTEL CHANGES HANDS

HIS LEASE   AND L. B. VAN
DECAR   LEASES TO W.

hotel situation ot Cranbrook took
place thu latter part ol last week
by which F. B. VanDecar disposes
ol Ills interests in the Royal hotel
In his lather, who leases the same
lo W. A. Rollins, ol this city. The
health ol Mr. F. 11. VabDecar made
n necessary that he should move to
a lower altitudi* at the coast nnd lor
ihis reason ho surrendered his lease
lo his lather and wlll leave this
week with his wile tor Vancouver,
where he will locate permanently
and engage In business. Mr. Van-
decar, sr*, will remain in charge until
the lirst ol the month under the
agreement made with Mr. Rollins,
uli,11 be and Mr. VanDecar and their
son Bert will return to the coast,
where Mr. VanlXcar already has
large Interests and will take his son
Bert Into partnership with him. This
means that the VanDecar lamily
will leave Cranbrook permanently.
Mr. and Mrs. VanDecar will be
kindly remembered hy the early residents ol Cranbrook, ns they were
pioneers ot this town. Both Bert
and Frank were boys when Uiey came
io Cranhrook and have grown io manhood here. The whole lamily regret
leaving Cranbrook and the lrlradly
associations ot this place, but their
business interests demand that the
change should be made. It is fortunate lor the Royal hotel and lor
Cranbrook that a man like W. A.
Rollins wlll be In charge ol that institution. Mr. Rollins possesses
great personal popularity, has had experience in the hotel business and
is a man ol business ability and
therelore   will make a success in his
