Is tliere any reason why they should
be selected as a sacrifice tor any particular body ol men, when tbey have
conducted their business under the
provisions ol the law? This question
ol Local option is one that demands
fairness and justice iti its discussion.
If the Herald had the power to wipe
oul the liquor traffic it would do
so, yel al the -same time it believes
in dealitm fairlv with those men who
bave spenl what they have made in
ing adequate accommodation to
tin* public, und it believes the same

give ample evidence of the fuct that
Mr. Burrell is bein-- recognized in
the east as a man ol strong attainments and there is no longer any
lurther question hut that he is niak-
Ing fi'„»d The Herald is pleased t>,
know ibis, although Mr. Hurrell Is a
Conservative, hut he possesses a
muni so broad and comprehensive,
thut be is representing in the Dominion house the whole people nud nnt
any political taction.
The crops ,,( Canada lust year are
estimated to have been worth $432,-

would exceed sooo.ooo.ooo or up*

Is certainly a very good showing.

care a dam foi the difficulties
stitiK between the editors „f newspapers 	
It seems somewhat paradoxical
that the Federation ol Miners would
pass a resolution at then district
, iiccting admitting Japanese and
Chinese on a equal looting with oilier members of Hu* organization.
What ho, where are our [rieiuls
I Inwtbornthwaite and Sherman?
A certain business man of Cran.
lironk who was asked by a Chinaman
fol a cigar witb the union label,
said: "I guess when it comes to the
time when Chinks ask Ior cigars with
tiie union label I would better leave
Cranbrook."
Tbe Postmaster General lias relusoil
the application ol "Bob" Kdwards,
editor ol the Calgary Bye Opener,
lot reinstatement in the mails. lt
seems strange that the "Winning
Posl," and the "Pink 'Un" should
have the freedom of the mails and
the "Eye Opener" be ruled out.
The Victoria Week says that Mr.
Michael Manson has beeu nominated
as tlte Conservative candidate tor tbe
('omox-Atlin district. When was the
convention held and where?
The Victoria Colonist surely got
ils foot in it by that lake telegram
trom Mr. llorden. Tbe narrow margin by which Mr. Bernard was elected seems to be sufficient grounds Ior
the belief entertained lu Victoria by
Conservatives and Liberals alike,
that had it not been lor the despicable piece of political trickery, Mr.
Templeroan would have heen returned
as a member of parliament.
The Herald is iu receipt ol the annual report ol the Canadian Bank ol
Commerce, which shows a most remarkable year of prosperity for that
well known institution. President
II. E. Walker, presided at tbe meeting and presented the annual report
of the directors, which showed a net

It is unnecessary at this stage to dismiss the merits or demerits oi Local
Option. The sincerity and lofty aim
of its advocates cannot be -questioned, but since their policy involves an
Interference with personal liberty* tor
tin* purpose ol exploiting methods
which have conspicuously tailed elsewhere, The Week holds that thc only
fair course to adopt would be to lol-
l,,w the example set hy the Laurier
government twelve years ago and
take a relerendum vote at the next
Provincial election. As this Is probably the utmost concession the government will make to the Local Op-

tbeir business is as legitiiiiuti* under

before the Provincial government
anil ask that the newspapers of Cranbrnok sbnulrl be wiped nut ,,l existence, wnuld that not be an advocacy
of confiscation ol personal property.
If the same were asked of anv other line ,,l business in any town in the
province ■ or throughout the province
as a whole, would that not be asking for a public confiscation nf property? There are two sides to this
most important problem, and it is
neither righl nor fair lor one side to
demand <>f the government an absolute confiscation of a certain line of
business in the province that has heen
heretofore pronounced an absolutely
legitimate business bv the laws of
llial province. The hotel men ol the
province of British Columbia have,
as a rule, been the trail blazers ot
civilization in this domain. Tbey
have erected comfortable bouses and
maintained stopping places lor the
l ravelin" public, and the lact that
lliey have sold liquor is no argument
against them as citizens and men.
They have been, as a rule, among

BIG GAME INCREASING
'I'he annual report ol A. Hryan Williams,     Provincial   game and forest
warden, wliieli was brought down to
lhe House yesterday, is an unusunlly
interesting ami satisfactory one.     It
shows that the new system introduced last year    is   working well, and
that the    hig game of   the provinee,
wilh llie exception of the wapiti   on
Vancouver    Island,   are on ihe    in-
j ereuse.     The report is far too   long
[for reproduction in a newspaper, hut
| il   will  repay  reading hy  nil sports-
j men interested iu the game resources
ii.f Hritish Columbia and iheir preservation.
i   The special    grant of $10,000 made
last  year (or    ihe first time hy   the
legislature has been but little drawn
upon, as ihe revenue from licenses
and so forth comes to within some
y*iM) of that amount. At thc same
time tin- revenue thus assured has
permit led the engaging of game wardens who have done good work. Additional game wardens are recommended, and it is pointed out that
in addition to their ordinary duties
they are frequently able to lend valuable assistance to the provincial police. These wardens are particularly
needed in the eountrv to be traversed
by the G.T.P. nud the McConnell
Creek district, wben' there are thousands of caribou.
Numerous evasions of the license
laws along the const as far as the
head of Vancouver Island ure reported. The offenders nre from the
Stales and come iu launches or
yachts and rarely if ever take out a
iiceuse to shoot. The purchase of a
fast  launch is     advocated, so     that
these gentry may he looked alter. It
is also suggested that it he made an j
oflcnce to carry firearms without a
license. The revenue from big game|
licenses amounted to ST.TUli during;
the past year.
The Indians appear to have given;
little trouble lust year, and the j
keeping of the Stony Indians fromj
Alberta out of the provinee has had ■
a splendid efiect on the game on the
eastern boundary.
In the Kast Kootenny reserve thej
game is increasing, and it is suggested that the reserve be made a per-]
inaiieul national park. The Importation of European red deer and chani-!
<>is Is suggested, and it is pointed out i
that tbe former have been most atic-
cessfully acclimated in New Zealand.    ' |
Moose nre increasing and spreading
further south; caribou have been seen
in great numbers iu Cassiar; deer, except near the Coast cities, appear to
be on the increase, while L-last Kootenay is being re-stocked with wapiti. Ou Vancouver Island, however,
these animals are being heavily Bitot
for their teeth, and protective measures are said to be absolutely necessary. The outlook for sheep is
also encouraging.
A plea is entered for the grizzly
bear, said to be Hearing extermination iu some sections, tic is stated
to be really verv timid and it is
suggested thnt it ht- prohibited io
tran him.
The bears have increased enormously in Soul hern 11. C, nnd in
some parts ol Kootenny, Okanagan,
Similkamecn and Kamloops sufficiently su lo he a nuisance to fruit
growers. Permission to kill them
under restrictions in suggested.
The report is not, so encouraging
as to game birds, though even In this
case It would seem that, generallv

Rambling Reveries
UY A DREAMER.
There wc too many fathers who
will tie up tue do# al night and let
the boy run loose.
Some women are awful touchy. A
widow has brought uu action against
ii paper whieh taiil that her husband
had gone lo a happier home.
Whai is needed most of all In
bringing up children is example.
What they see and hear nud take in
by absorption in tbeir young years,
will, in mom cases, become the ruling
traits of their lives, Parents rarely
tally realize to what extent they
stand as models to their children.
There Is uu surer safeguard against
thc temptations that come to young
men ami women than a love (or
home. It hus brought back and
held many a wanderer in a safi
place. It ia something not onlv t.
love home but to know lhat yon
love ii—and to know that vou are
liapi'ii-i at home than in anv othei
spot on earth.
The sooner children arc brought to
understand that idleness is u crime,
.uul that no amount ol tine culture
can make llu-m pass (or valuable
lhc world's eye i( they ate unable to
enrn a livelihood, aud so must be
come "hangers uu" for others to
support, the bet-iei for them. That
daughter who helps her mother cook
and scrub, is far more worthy than
sho who only paints and plays' and
obliges her overworked father tti puv
n servant that she mav not soil her
ilalntj  hands.
Then; is a cfaarjtv lhat consists 111
withholding words, in keeping back
harsh judgments, in abstainin i
speech, if to speak is to condemn.
Such charily heats the tales of slander, hut does not repeat it; listens in
silence, but- forbears comment; then
locks the unpleasant secret tip in the
ver" depths of his heart. Silence
can still rumor; it. Is speech that
keeps a story alive, and lends it
vigor. It i.s in the kind and "i-nflc
bean lhat charity abides wilh the
pencofulnoss of a dove. Tliere it
makes ils home, uml bv tbe word
withheld, aud the kindly one out
spoken, we have the Hlgu r.f the dove
uf peace nestling iu thc heart. For
kind words are like "apples of gold
in   -leitires of silver,"
OVER DRESS.
T..u mauy mothers consider theii
clilldren a'; simply objects (or the dis
plav of their own vanity and pride
Little .Mary must he. kepi ia pun
white clothes all tbe season through,
though neither the father's purse nor
the mother's strength i.- sufficient to
provide the numberless changes neces-
sun* instead of dressing the child
in sensible frocks of blue flannel such
as millionaire's children ure not ashamed to wear for plav dresses,
even effort Is strained to reach
tins false ideal of dress which the
mother has set up for herself. She
sits up into the wee small hours of
the night working on dainty gowns
in which ul) the childish impulses lot
plaj are stilled forever in dress array. The over-dressed child is always ihe unhunnt child. Sbe is a
peri miss who has learned early io
regard overmuch the pomps and vanities of life, or she is a poor little
discontented victim, who has never
Imd a chance [or childish play, aud
looks with envy at thc ragged, little,
tumbling urchins who make mud pies
on the roadside.
The over-dressed boy is even more
unhappy than thc over-dressed girl.
Tho Little Lord Fauntlcroy boys who
were seen a few years ago in tbeir
velvet suits, though they were picturesque, were a very unhappy set of
little gentlemen, and were probably
very thankful when tbe fashion changed and they could wear blue flannel
sailor suits and double-kneed trousers, aud play marbles ad libitum.
"Ito you like your suit, .Johnnie?"
said a visitor to a boy in long blonde
curls and Knunteleroy dress. "Naw,"
he replied. "I don't want to be a
girl. It'.s my raa wants me to be a
little augol."
How much sacrifice do such poor
mothers make on the altar of personal vanity, and how little time and
temoer must be lett to devote to the
spiritual training ot the child. Whut
■a luck there is in such -a home of
the true, spirit of motherhood, of that
tender care which the child will remember in after years, and which
will help to guide liim arieht over
lhe pitfalls that beset every path.
Tlie hoy who looks upon his home as
a plaee for the display of nervous irritation that comes from overwork,
where everything is sacrificed to tbe
love of show and no place is left for
Uie angel of rest aud peace, will
leave it, at his first opportunity, and
at the snmc time bis training has ill-
fltted him to meet ihe -Teat temptations outside.
CHANGED HY KINDNESS.
"Wo were married Ihirtv-seven
vears," a man said, who had lost
his wife, "and in all that time she
never gave me a cross word. Hut 1
shall never forget the firsl time I
scolded her. One morning when we
had been married two \i>ars, I louml
a bul ton off my shin. I threw the
garment at her, and said In a rough
voice, "Sew a button on!" Sbe got
a button and sewed it on, saying,
"Forgive me, husband, 1 had a great
deal to do yesterday, and I lorgol it;
hut il shall never happen again." Her
gentle words almost broke my
heorl I could have gone down on
my knees io ask ber forgiveness. She
made a different man of me, and thc
world has been a different place since
she died."
Those who babitualh' correct their
children in theii faults by   whipping
and boxing them,   must   not be surprised   when they find them slapping
them in return, and   rough and abusive towards one another.     They are
simply trying to enforce their    own
little ideas of rinht as tbey have seen
their elders do.      The mother    who
spends most of her time fussim* over
ihe wardrobes of   her children    and
herself,   starching, ironing and decor-1
iitimr nnd   making tbem   fashionable, ■
will lind the lessons she taught crop-,
ping oul in dudeism; iu vanity   that
prevents ihe   development ol     solid.
character and   useful habits.       The
father who smokes and drinks     and,
spends his tubstancs in ilotous living, 1
will have better luck than management if his children turn to be
strong, healthy and honorable citizens.
Blessings not vouchsafed to the

the sojourners in lnm*-», n:..| *.;<■.■ '-wanderer from its sacr.-d i redacts, as
portrayed in t.e priP'.oa lines of 'i*e

II.iw these lines of living light

tiREAT MEN   Will)   HAVE I'KOV
El) ZAM-BUK.
Scientist,   Analyst,   Magistrate   and
War Co-respondent all Testify.
Men aud women great iu point oi
knowledge, position aud experience,
say lhat Znm-Buk stands .superior to
all otlier healing substances. Bead
the opinions of the following eminent
men;
Mr. C. !•;. Sanford, of Weston,
King's Uo,, V S., a magistrate,
School Commissioner, uud Baptist
Dencou, says: "Zam-Buk cured me of
ee/ema on my ankle, which had defied
every other remedy tried during
iwcitty years, lt alsu cured me af
piles; and 1 take pleasure in recommending it to my fellow-men."
Mr. Frank Scudumore, the famous
war correspondent, who has gone
througb twenty-nine battles, and
whose dispatches during the Boci
War were so eagerly read from coast
lo coast in Canada, says: "Owing
to the poisonous dye from an under-
garment penetrating a slight strateh,
my legs broke out in ulcers. At one
lime 1 had seventeen deep holes in
my left leg, into each of which I
could put my thumb; and had fourteen similar ulcers ou my right leg.
Remedy after remedy failed to heal
these, and I was well nigh worn out
with pain and lack of sleep. Zam-
Buk was introduced, and 1 am glad
to say that it gave me speedy relief,
A few weeks' treatment resulted in a
perfect sure of all the ulcers."
Dr. Andrew Wilson, whose reputation as a scientist is world-wide, in a
book recently published ("Homely
Talks on First-Aid") says: "Zam-Buk
may he relied upon as an antiseptic
dressing which requires no preparation, and has the particular advantage of possessing unique healing
properties."
Mr. Vi. Lascelles-Scott, the famous
analyst to the Royal Commission
for Victoria, says: "1 have no hesitation in certifying the entire purity ol
Zam-Buk. It is of great healing
power for open wounds or injuries."
Sit one could go on quoting auth-
itv after authority, all of the opinion, based ou personal tests, that
/.am.link should ho in every home.
Zaui-Iluk is a sure cute for ruts,
hums, serai ches, cold-sores, ringworm, blood-poisoning and eczema,
li is also used extensively for idles,
for which ii is wii html equal. All

ANY CIUW CAN KNOCK.
Don'l criticise your neighbors' faults,
no mutter wnat they do;
Don't ridicule   the masses or malign
the chosen few;
Don't ihiuk yourself ft censor of  the
silly human flock,
And   just remember   as you ^.n that
any chump can knock.
Don't laugh at those who make mistakes or stumble on the wav.
For vou are apt to follow them—and
almost any day.
Don't think the other's shifting sand
while you are solid rock,
And don't forget, tor heaven's sake,
thai any chump can knock.
Don't he a puller-down of fame    ou
other men conferred;
Don't give a parting kick to onr who
fell because he erred;
Don't think that you are perfect and
tho only size in stock,
And now,   once more, just hear    tn
mind     that    any   chump    canl
