many legitimate ami worthy proportion would wall ror ovor perlmim he-'
run* a capitalist company could be Induced to do sufficient work lu put'
tlie-in on a paying basis.
The Crnnbrook Uomostnke Is practically in this position; the surface
Bliowlng, consisting nf throe wide led-:
Ki'H, Is very satisfactory ami although
considerable work has been done on
t.io surface, no great <1 -i-ih ban beuu i
obtained: the ore in the shnfts ami
tunnels give up gold in In- pan, uud
there Is no doubt us to the values on
tlu- surface. Very many assays have
been made, some very nigh up to ?200.,
and siimi- very low, 50 cents, hut true
sampling has always given good results, and It appears tliat a value of
$4.00 per ton would most nearly represent the average voln of ore from
the three ledges combined. These
three ledges, thenurrouvst of Which is
21) feet wide, the widest porhaps 100 tt.
an- parallel and also parallel to the
creek, so tbat one working tunnel will
tap all three and thia excellent physical property together with good
water-power, timber and transportation facaliiies , make this a very enticing proposition.
Why then is capital chary of investing? One tiling alone ami tbat is want
of depth, and it is to gain depth by
means of ;i tunnel tliat people are being asked tu subscribe. Till.*; tunnel
df 000 feet length will give 400 feet of
depth or back in mining parlance, aud
will demonstrate without cavil, tin*
Btrength ami deep aeatedneas of the
ore body. With thia underground confirmation, tlie company wlll bo in a
position to determine a prico for the
property b^ausc quantity is what
companies want.
In Alaska, two or more companies
are paying big dividends on $2.00 ore.
in Dakota tiiere are several companies, Including the orlglnnl Homestako
.Mine, paying huge dividends on much
lower grata ores that tbo general run
or the Perry Creek Homestake, nnd one
propcry on the Arctic Ocean, handling
HOOO tous pi r day i f ere contn!nfng
only $1.16 per ton of which only S2fl Is
saved, bringing lb-* ore value to onl>
!tr> cents per ton, is pnylng large dividends because tbe expen ■■"- only com
to 07 centa per ton
Taking these a- typical i -samples of
what can be done with low grade gold
tires, can anyone see any reason why
Perry Creek should nol bo a winner?

The management of the Hex and
Auditorium Theatres is desirous of
thanking the public of Cranbrook aud
vicinity tor the most generous support
given to their presentation of "Tlie
Birtli of a .Nation" at tlie Auditorium
un Tuesday hist; and to further assure
tlieir patrons tbat, us promised io a
recent Issue, gonerous support of local theatres will lead to further offerings of a similar superior nature.
That tin* people id' this city DO appreciate efforts made toward tin uplift ol
the drama was probably never better
demonstrated than on Tuesday last.
JudKint: huth by the Blip port given und
the unhesitating prais.* bestowed upon
the production. The Management, ou
tlieir purt, are proud to think also of
the enthusiastic reports thut are sure
to be made upon the evidences of up
preciatlon shown ami support given hy
tin- people nf tliis city, whicli cannot
but react to the everlasting credit of
tin* district.
Following is announcement of current attractions at the Ilex, all of
which are guaranteed tu the limit:
.Monday aud Tuesday next week Cleo
-Madison in the live act Bed Feather
feutnrepluy "Her Bitter Cup." The
scenes in tills photoplay are witiiout
doubt the most dramatic in which Miss
Madison hus ever appeared, aud thut
Is "going some", having promise of
making tliis attraction one of the
strongest presented for some time.
The comedy feature or this bill will
be no less than Chas. Chaplin in the
convulsingly funny laugh-producer,
Tlie Floorwalker", in two acta. To
see tliis is to roar for forty minutes
straight, if yon don't luught— well—
we will notify the undertaker.
Friday and Saturday this week, William Fox presents Dorothy Bernard in
"Her Hidden Past." a lavish spectacular drama iu live acts from tlie story
Iiy (ii-urges Ohltet This is produced
as only Fox knows how, and lias prov-
d a .sensation wherever shown. Prices
for all these truly IiIr productions wlll
remain for the present tlie same uh
usual, which fact may be better appreciated when we Htutc that for the
present film service we are paying
fully 60 per cent higher than before.
We frankly hope to benefit by the additional outlay—-we are positively certain that you will.   Be a Booster.

Waldo Oct. 26th, We noticed
through ibe columns of a Calgary
paper where a soldier bad died nt
Sarci e Camp from the effects of drhik
ing May Rum. Several of the Hindoos
illl this burg got ou a toot on Saturday evening last, and proceeded to
do some house cleaning around their
shacks, und although we do not think
they bad boon drink' ig bay rum, it
sure proved to la* very rum stuff,
ami while it did nut tend to kill tbe
consuming parties, it proved a very
strong Incentive towards killing others
as ovldanced by tin- display of bruised iii-ads, -xi's and several other miscellaneous articles of warfare which
were exhibited in tlie Waldo Court
Hoii-M' this week. Tlie case wus lieurii
before A. .1. Goule and II. U. Orogeon,

-—-A   word   of  explanation—
In handing to a certain prominent
and respected citizen an Invitation to
the forthcoming conference upun "Tlie
Municipal Laws and bow they arc to
be enforced'   I was surprised to re-
e  whal  night be described as a
rebuke.     My   friend   practusally uc-
used  me of t-elng an  agitator and
Htely hin*"l I shouil be wis*   if I
minded my . v .i busine..*..
It maybe ■ ere nre otii   j wiio hav?
Iii* im   , nc ptlon of Ci. Social Scree  Coundl    ir  tlie  o-f-uuiz,ifl.'i,     i
which I i.m quite willing to take re-
ponsibility.     The   Council   does   not
xlst to interfere with anybody's business or to agitate against law and oriel*    it exists as an organIzatlon for
the study of social and industrial con-
litions, and fur the expression of the
►pinion of ratepayers and citizens upon mutters of common interest.   Similar organizations have come Into existence   recently   in  all   the  cities  of
Canada.   In the old country the Christian Social  Union  whicli numbers u-
mong its members many of tiie most
prominent public men and women of
the country, lias carried on  similar
rk for 20 or ,'tO years and lias been
instrumental in obtaining many nced-
fd reforms.
As regards tin- conference to bc held
in Nov. Hth, in the Parish Hnll.our object is to arouse tho interest of citizens in their own (ity. Every citizen
should have a working knowledge of
his city, of iiow it is governed, how
it may be Improved, bow its resources
may bc developed, If things an* not
done right or are left undone, citizen,
should have an opportunity to brim;
ing tliem to light and public officials
Bhould have it fair chance to stat<
their side, a subject iu point Is tin
luestlon of the local time. We havi
got into a lovely muddle over the unit
ter simply because uo control body has
dealt with tbe matter in u representative way. Decision on thc subject is
invited at the conference and a resolution of ratepayers will be pasr.ed. It
Is a small matter but *n the meantime
nf considerable importance.
The fact of the forthcoming municipal election should give it special Interest to the conference. The meeting
will be open to tiie public and any
citizen with an idea relative to the
social, moral, or financial development
of Cranbrook and Its environs Is invited to speak. We don't ask for long
speeches: wo want straight forward
and to-tbc-pnlnt expressions nf opinion.
Old-Timer Suffered From a Delusion

Does the fuct oi being an "Old-

right" to do us you please regardless
uud Irrespective of ihe law of the
land'.' Apparently so thinks Joe Boyle
who wus up on Wednesday on a charge

Worship Judge Arnold and maintained
tluit lie was an old-timer round here
and had a right in du as he liked.
However His Worship failed lu see'
eye tu eye wltll Joe and gave him
twenty-tour hours to leave thc town
for the good nf the town.

Dear Sir:-
No one wltll two eyes In hli; bead
can fall to realize that tiiere Is a good
deal of trouble brewing for this tewn
in tiie mutter of general prices. It is
coming everywhere, but in Cranbrook
it will come In an accentuated form.
There is a two-edged problem: the
store-keepers edge and the housekeepers edge. At present we know
that thousands of dollars are being
sent out of Cranbrook every montii
If that money circulate..! in Cranbrook
we should nil benefit. But the honest
fact is, and this is the fact for storekeepers to face, our house-keepers
can't keep house wlhout strict economy: und strict economy ddniandi
cheap buying, (that's business isn't
it?) in some cases the buyer can save
10, ^0, and up to409! by sending away.
Now preach all the civic loyalty you
can but u.iless you can show tbe buyer
a good rerson for sacrificing this percentage, he vill continue to send away.
What is the trouble? PoBfltbk ciMlsos
nro these: too many stores; too ex
ponslvo and wastotul a delivery syn
tern, this largely resulting from
thougl tlecs shoppers asking for 'lu.lf
a pound of butter and please send It In
time for tea, etc. etc. Present customers paying for ancient bad debts eon
tracted In the credit period; overhead
charges heavier than ure justified by
the buslnesB.
I am convinced tliat the house-keepers of Crnnbrook would prefer to
spend tlieir money here every time.
Our store-keepers ure patient and give
good service. But there Is a growing
lack of confidence between tlie two
parties. Tills Is disastrous. The Inter
ests of both parties are one und a con

What can be done?
Here Is a subject, sir, It might be
well to air In your columns: let's havo
a little open-air straight talking from

Cranbrook has an immense quantity
of Idle bind close around the city.
Not useless land, but of the choicest
quality, capable of producing large
quantities of vegetables, small trults,
and certain kinds ot apples, to perfection, with free range lund ut the back
thereof, upon which thousands of cot-
tie can bo bred and (ed. Some one wlll
suy, What Is the use ot producing stutf
if you cannot sell it ut u good price?
To this 1 reply, with co-operation,
an up-to-date Canning and otlier
necessary plant, a sure ninrket could
be created on the spot contracts
could be made In advance wltll the
manager ot the factory, and quick
returns assured. Perhaps not high
prices, that is not tlie most successful
feature In uny settlement, prices of
almost everything have been soaring
higher and yet higher, until It is becoming a great problem us to how people can pay their way. Large production of the best possible quality Is by
far more Important, to secure success.
May I suggest to your readers tliat
If they look at the labels on most of
the canned goods In tlio stores, and
then consider how tuucli is going to
the railway companies for haulage ete-.
and ask themselves the* question why
cannot we produce theso goods right
here, and be exporters Instead of Importers,
Even incuts (lieef, Pork, Mutton I
could bo BUecesstully canned, and tlie
bones ground up for the poultry. It
might be Information to your readers
that Ontario stores in summer and
and winter, sends west, millions of
dozens of eggs. Why Is this possible?
I Poultry thrive better In I). C. than
I Ontario, having a much milder nnd
shorter winter? Eastern Kootenay
alone could care for a million hens,
and clear a dollar per bead on them.
jOf course we must liave an increased
population to do it, hut tliat ls easily
number of the agricultural Incoming
ity of her Idle landlwarrnnt, three
things are necessary.
1. Those of us who own tlte land
close around tlie city must be willing
to sell It at very reasonable prices.
2. It must be cleared of the stumps
and mnde ready for tho settlers.
0. Wnter, which is within easy reach
must be mado available (or nll.
Clearing Ibe land.—At least a thou-
sand ranches could be provide'd close
around Cranbrook, making it a beautiful garden city, within sight of the
c. P. It. There is already a trail that
could be easily made a puhlic road,
moro or less in crescent shape, leading
from tlie Crnnbrook road over the benches, or rather around tliem, passing
the pretty little lakes In behind, at tlie
foot of the higher mountains, and coming out again near where tlle C. P. It.
crosses the road at the north end by
the drainage works. This could be
ninde .: lovely drive, increasing the
beauty of Cranbrook suburbs, and the
ranches could be made to fit in with
this drive.
I liave heard that the I). C. Provincial Government has had under consideration the question of their taking
over the management of Irrigation
works and wliere desirable', put in the
necessary plant rather than leave this
to tho settlers themselves with their
very limited capital.
The cheese factory and butter erealll
erlH or the east brought lite fanners
together and taught thorn the vulue
of co-operation, anil this same proceed
ure In II. C, will surely lead to a more
friendly Interest in oacll others good.
