It was a happy idea of the Hoard
of Trade of that city to hold 1 banquet in memory ol their misfortune the Province,
and invite the outside people, thoso
who had done all in their power
to assist the people of Kernie, in
their time of trouble. And what a
banquet it was. There were nearly
one hundred people gathered at the
tables in the Waldorf hotel and a
better prewired banquet was never
nut un in Kast Kootenav. And who
did it? Whv, Leslie Mills, who was
a kid in short parts a tew years

that he was a talker and a man

"Ilopfen und MalU Gott
erhalts," iu other language, "may
the Lord preserve malt and hops"
That motto seemed tu be largely and
most generously approved by a
thirsty, but entirely appreciative
crowd at the formal opening of lhc
new premises uf the Fort Steele
Brewing company at Fernie, on Monday last, the anniversary of the
great fire of a year ago, which swept
the older concerns oil the earth in an
hour, or less, ol the afternoon ot tbe
1st uf August, 1008. Most people
would . be inclined to mark tbe anniversary in mourning; not so the
people running the fortunes of the
Fort Steele Brewing company. Instead of recalling the occasion with
sorrow, they wisely issued an invitation to old man, Mr. World, and his
wile, even to thc third and fourth
degree in blood without regard to
age, sex, nationality or previous conditions ol servitude. And they
came. All of them, ur nearly all ol
them. The beer, the good, clear,
amber-colored beer, was free and
there was no end to it. The end,
at any rate, lay at the far side ol
the f.000 barrels in stock. Thc
thirstiest Slav or Dago might well
mourn tlw limitations of human capacity. Seven thousand barrels! It
it were mere gallons some of them,
who came there to perform on their
national beverage with a freedom and
irresponsibility borne of the knowledge that tbe "blow-out" cost tbem
nothing, might   cope   with it.     But
barrels .       It fairly beat them.
Thc crowd was mighty and the hospitality was as profuse as the capacity of' those who were about to
receive. And they were truly thankful. Beer in glasses, goblets
schooners, men-of-war, dreadnoughts,
Cheese, from thc delicate variety ol
Switzerland to the deadly product ot
Lim burg— thrice accursed ol the
gods, but beloved ot those whose
olfactories are away out of plumb.
Anon, the Italian bund came out
from Fernie and played most excellent music to u delighted crowd. Let
the crowd revel while we have a
look around.
When a public compauy has a lormal opening ol a plant that cost,
up to the present, a matter ot a
quarter of a million of dollars aud
which will cost another fifty thousand
before the mailing and bottling departments are completed, thev are
justified in asking their Iriends round
to have a glass of beer and to take
u look   at their property.
Prior to tiie great fire the company
had a fairly extensive plant on the
present site and a widespread trade
in alt parts of thc country. Tbe
,, husiness, however, bad entirely out-
, , grown tbe capacity of the plant, and
tbey, accordingly, had the plans of
the present structure in their hands
at the time of tlie conflagration
They had cost them over $4,000, and
the duplication which became necessary after the fire cost, for the
mere copying, $500. That will give
an idea of their completeness.
Almost More the fire was out of
the old foundations, that is on the
15th September last, work started
on the new building. Inside eight
months the huilding was finished as
we see It, and in nine months they
were brewing.
Looked at   from the railway tracks
thc      building   gives     a   singularly
airv, castellated    impression,   except it
that   nu ancient    castle, no matter'
how handsome it might be, had win-
constriiction. Industrial     struc
tures, as a rule, are brutally ugly.
Like some of tbeir owners they seem
iu boast, "We are business buildups. Practical, get-l he-dollar bus-
incss buildings. No frills about us.
(if course, we are ugly as toads- Uut
tandsome is that handsome does."
Ml right, hut what have vou to sav
igauisi .1 really handsome'building [1
it can dn as handsomely as a
brute beast of a mere utility structure' lu short, this structure is
distinctly beautiful in iis externals
and will [uim u most pleasing feature in iin- landscape when thc
{round about it (it stands on twenty
acres of its own] are planted and
beautified. The highest point is
ahout 1211 feet above the ground, and
ii i.s a distinct compliment to the
arcldtect that the smoke stack is
so worked into the design that it in
no way offends the eye1—and your
iinoke stack is a grim, filthy monster
for an architect to handle with taste
and skill.
The best way to get an Idea ot
the interior is' to follow the adventures of a parcel uf malt as it
proceeds througb its process of evolution Irom malt to beer.
Well tnen, up comes a car u( malt
on tlu- spur, which comes within a
few feet of the doors. Oft goes
tin- sack and away with it on the
elevator up to the very top of the
building. That elevator, like every
otlier mechanical unit of tne plant,
is operated bv its own indeptvOctn
electric motor! Down into a steel
door goes the mall and falls Into one

Knife-blade switch on the wall and
pushes over the arm ol the
rheostat and at once the bevel gearing at tiie top sets those awful

would happen a man if he fell in.
After sufficient ol this churning at
a temperature regulated by the experience of Mr. Valentine Oppl, graduate master brewer of the American
Brewing Academy o( Chicago. 1903,
the liquor is drained ofi into the
Kettle—the beer kettle. That is a
■prober bhffifc in kettle:., all right. It
is ol solid copper, hand made, polished and riveted. It was made bv the
Laubenheimcr company, ol Chicago,
and holds some 160 barrels. Here
the beer is boiled for some two and
three hours by means ol
superheated steam taken direct from
the main boiler on the ground floor
and introduced into a false bottom
of the implement. The steam and
vapor arising from the boiling is
tarried into the outer air by means
of a copper pipe the size of the tunnel of an ocean liner. After boiling
the liquor falls by gravitation 1
the hop-jack and thence to a double
tube cooler, two sections of which
arc water cooled, the third section
being cooled by the ammonia and
carbonic acid process. Thc beer goes
through a center tube, the cooling
medium traveling in an outside tube
or jacket. Bv means of this interesting apparatus the liquor can be
pumped up to the fermenting vats at
any temperature required by the
master brewer. The fermentation
process takes about two weeks, and
in lhe process a deal ol carbonic
acid gas is given ofi. This gas, being heavier than air, hangs upon the
surface of the liquor and is caught
and carried away by a most ingenious process. ' It falls to the
compressor engine on the ground
Hour, where it gets a gentle squeeze
of 250 pounds to the square inch.
Allowed to expand it goes on its
refrigerating way (as is the way of
all gases under expansion) through a
labyrinth of pipes that are covered
with frost a quarter of an inch
thick. If the fermenting room is
cold, be sure that the apartment
where the storage vats stand is
colder still. Mid-winter weather
here in mid-summer. These storage
vats are filled by gravitation from
the ferment ing tanks. C.reat burly
fellows are those storage vats.
Corpulent giants, standing about 22

on duty hold 7,000 barrels between

ih.- worse of it. Here the liquor
lies for the goml ot its health in
quiet and severe cold and considerable
darkness for a matter of two and
half or three months. Next it goes
for a month's sojourn in the pressure tanks and thence to the racking room, where tbe barrels and
kegs are filled with the finished product. It only remains to run thc
barrels into the waiting freight cars
for general consumption- In time
the barrels, and so on, come back
and are washed and brushed and
painted and tidied up outside and ir
by machines of almost devilish ingenuity and made ready for another
trip into the world. That is about
the routine as far as an outsider
unskilled In any of the art ol
brewing, sees It.

According to the federal laws, nny person may be deported who ban been convicted of a felony or nny other crime Involving "mural turpitude." The federal

Up to the present time the federal gov.

Ul-ely to the judgment of the Immigration officers who examine the incoming

said. "There are a number of Italians who
leave Italy not from Italian ports but from
French and German ports. The Italian

those, because it has no Jurisdiction over

, BY THE OLD MAN.        w
S. M. Newton has succewh-ti John
Houston as editor and manager ol
tlio Prince Uupert Empire, and in his
Inst issue be bas the lollowing to
say     of   Mr. Houston:
"On Thursday, July 1st, Mr.
John Houston, the founder of
The Empire, bid adieu to Prince
KUPCt-'it, and headed for Mexico.
In bis departure, an able man is
lost to the community. Not
only did he make tlte umpire a
power iu British Columbia, hut
he was fearless, energetic, honest
and resourceful, both in bis newspaper work and in bis citizenship. When tbe day arrives for
writing a history of Prince Uupert, we predict the name of
Johu Houston will loom up in uo
uncertain sound. In wishing him
future prosperity in whatever
sphere he may choose, we feel
we are but echoing the sentiments of a large percentage of
the residents of Northern British
Tbe people of Kernie have reason to
he proud of the progress that they
have made during the past year.
'lliey have displayed courage uud determination, and that is what
brings success in thc west, livery-
body in Canada have reason to taKe
oil tbeir hats to tbe citizens of
that towu for the reason that tlicy
have shown themselves to lie true
oluc. Here is to tbe people of Kcrnie.     They   are all right.
W. H. Koss has developed during
tbe past few years. Today he is one
of the liest speakers that we have in
the province and hu has brought a
lot of money here for internal improvement. These ure tbe kind of
men Uiat help to build up a country. 	
There is going to be an election
Ibis fall, judging from the way things
look now. There are all kinds of
candidates ou the Conservative side,
hut there are many people who say
Uiat Tom Caven, who stood the
brunt of one election should have
thc lirst show. Many others are in
favor of A. Leitch, one of the old
timers of this district. Then there
are 0. T. Itogers, J. D. McUride,
Ci. 11. Thompson and A. E. Watts,
who iire mentioned. On the Liberal
side there is no one mentioned at
the present time except Dr, King,
and it is conceded the man who
would run against him would have
a hard time of it. There is one
thing that might be said and that
is that the McBride government has
been pretty good as a whole and it
will hu a hard proposition for
any man who represents the Liberal
ticket. No man has nerve enough
lo say that the McBride government
lias been immaculate, und one who
would do so would he a fool, for
there arc breaches in the breastworks of uny party that is open to
a favorable attack by the opposition.
One of the best talks that was
ever made in this district was
made by W. A. Buchanan, editor of
lhe Lethbridge Herald and Liberal
representative in the parliament of
Allierta for the eity of Lethbridge
al the banquet in Kernie Monday.
"Billy" Uuchanan is one of thc best
men that (iod ever created and thc
people got a great asset when they
located him there in the newspaper
business. Ile is "gilly gold" wherever you take him and you can
gamble on him from start to fln-
osh, for there arc no better made.
We know Buchanan and wc know
him well, antl we will give him
a certilicate any time he shows his
If you want to help Cranhrook do
the liest you can to boost the town
and the district. That is what pays
for every individual.
Cranhrook is going to have a big
celebration one of these days and we
will have all of the people of the
district here at that time. Cranbrnok does not ask for mueh as
a rule, but when it has a celebration of that kind it simply wants all
of the people to   be present.
Albert Mutz is a hustler and a
good citizen nf the district. He
has built up one of thc biggest concerns in this part of the country
nud is entitled to the credit for doing   thc same.
We received a letter the other day
saying some very nasty thing's
ahout certain people in this district and wo naturally refused to
publish it. As a result we lost a
subscription. Well, we are willing
to lose every subscriber that we
have before we will indulge In that

Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 8.—A good
deal of real progress has been made
toward the consummation of Canada's International exposition, this
week. Tbe most important item of
news is the Provincial government
grant of a quarter ot a million dol
lars toward the exposition expense
account. This sum, added tu the
half million that Winnipeg will contribute lo the fund, will bring Manitoba's credit up to three-quarters of a
million, and this amount will undoubtedly be increased to at least a
million dollars.
Within the next tew days thc Provincial governments of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan will
be asked to state definitely what
part—In dollars—they will take in the
exposition. There is no doubt that
the conferences which arc soon to
take place with thc governments of
the three Western provinces that
have not yet been asked to definitely
declare themselves, will produce satisfactory responses; - When the Exposition committee made its tour of
the west last spring, they were ac-
•orded the most hearty and cordial
reception throughout ttie country
covered by thc committee's itinerary.
Placed openly, and frankly heloro the
public and press as a project ot national import, the exposition received strong endorsation.
Monday, August fl, is the seventh
anniversary ot the coronation ot
King Edward VII.

titiiiR the wonder    ol    thc visitor.
1)„/ens ol gold bricks, larger than
paving blocks, lie in tla- center ol the
xlubit ol wealth. Kaeh one ol the
bricks would mean a fortune, .lust
figure it out; with gold bringing IM
an ounce and a brick weighing
around l',0 pounds, t-at-h one means
over lorty thousand dollars.
Surmounting tlw whole tm a special rack are five of the largest
nuggets ever found. The one which
occupies tht- middle holds the record
for a sing],- piece ot native gold.
II is worth nearly lour thousand
Tlte visitor ut the exposition instinctively wonders what would be
lhe sensation of a man who ac-
,*i,l,'iitly ran on lo one of these
nuggets. To pick up a piece ol pure
gold six inches    across would cause
tl Kiinnry man to pinch himself to
rind out il he were not dreaming.
Around the nut-side of the display
is a frame ot gold nuggets in
bottles.    There arc so many ol
these bottles full of gold that no
one ever takes the trouble to count
them. The mind is merely stunned

Nicely polished nuggets are also arranged in heaps about the bottom
ol the cage. Shining brightly ln
lhe well lighted building they make
a beautiful display.
II is a matter ol interest to watch
the crowds that (lock around the cage

Hint no man could ever get at it.
It is enclosed by a double cage ol
strong iron bars in the day time.
At night it is lowered Into a vault
beneath the floor of thc huilding.
This vault Is fitted up with elec-
1 tit- wires charged with 2,000 volts
of electricity. Any hapless man who
placed a hand on one ot t
wires would he electrocuted in

In addition to this burglar alarms
are in operation in all parts ol thc

This huge exhibit of gold was
loaned Ior exhibition purposes to thc

it was the plan to merely put the

The nuggets and gold bricks came
Irom various camps ol Alaska, chlcflv
Irom Nome, Klondike and Fairbanks.
Most ol thc metal Is placer gold,
but a considerable portion is from
the quartz mines which are now
turning out a large share of
Alaska's gold production.
With many of the nuggets there
are connected wonderlul romances,
telling of poverty, privation, hard
work and finally the strike. The
large nuggets on display will never
lie melted hut will be preserved entire as curiosities.
Thc largest nugget ot the collcc-
ls called the "Phantom Nugget," hecause of a dream the wile of
one ot the Orst owners had ot the
claim which told of its existence.
Before the discovery of this -wonderful piece ot native gold, tbe claim
was sold several times. Tbe nugget
was finally uncovered by the Pioneer
Mining company, which had secured
the claim. In the drilling operations ol its first owners, poor men
who were making a hazardous living, they came within six feet of
the spot where It was located. They
quit work just one day too soon
and abandoned tho claim for the year.
The lather ol live children is usually willing to admit that he knows

without any ol the bones and tambourine business in their makeup.
In musical comedy no one looks
lor anything more than the merest
excuse to hang songs and dances
