there was a strong element present

Beattlo had already sent his resignation in to Ottawa. rerhaps the
.statement was not made In as many
words, but that ls tho understanding
conveyed to tho majority of those
present at the meeting In question.
Dr. King's elevation to the dominion cabinet being settled upon, it was
only natural that he should look to
his own former home town to give
him a proper send-off in the necessary
by-election. But tlie circumstances
surrounding the ejection of Mr. Beat-
tie as tlie dominion member were
such that it is obviously an open question whether anyone but Mr. Beattie
could pull the same vote. Accordingly
supporters of Dr. King set out to ascertain the prospects of securing an
acclamation for him. This they did
in the wrong way. Instead of setting
out to (establish a degree of confidence in the minds of the electorate,
the methods em^oyed have been Buch
as to create distrust and suspicion of
the motive underlying the move. Even though df. appointed that Mr. Beat-
tie was not to be given cabinet rank,
most peoplo in the district might
have become reconciled to having Dr.

It has been decided to link the
movement here up with tho churches
and make each church responsible for
its own patrdl. Two boyis have already been selected from each church

Friday evening, the 20th, at 7 o'clock,

beginning of the movement with the
boys nnd it is not only expected that
the Scout spirit will grow hero but
that we wifil before tlie year ls out
have a troop as good, if not as large,
as any in B.C.
Scouting is a ehnracter-formlng recreational education carried on to a
largo extent in the great, healthy
schooil out-of-doors. It develops
I ho spirit of resourcefulness and
cheerfully facing difficulties. Those
wero qualities of tho Canadian pioneers nnd, embodied In their descendants, havo given us a large number of
tho great names of Canadian history,
Tho diffident boy develops initiative and self-confidence.
The selfish boys learns thoughtful-
pess for others.
Tho boy of wealthy parents and the
lioor boy discover their common
ground and worth.
The disrespectful boy learns respect
and  courtesy.
The over-confident, self-assertative
and overbearing boy adjusts himself
to others' rights.
Along this line we could continue.
For belter citizenship, help the boys.
In no better way can the boys of
■.■ar*.hrook be helped than through the
Stouts. It is an organization that ap-
p< nls to boys physically, mentally and
morally, and It hoped that this
movement in Cranbrook will meet
with the hearty co-operetlon of every
man and woman in our city. To those
who are not familiar wHh the movement the Bcout promise ond law are
bore given. When a boy becomes a

On my hor or I promise that I will
do my best, to do my duty to God and
King, to help other people at all times.
to obey the Scout Law.
Scout Law
1. A Scout's honor is to be trusted.
2, A Scout Is loyal to the King and
Iiis officers and his parents, his country, and his employers.
8. A Scout's duty Is to be useful,
and to htflp others.
-I. A Scout is a friend to all, and
a brother to every, other Socut
5.   A Scout is courteous.
fi.   A Scout is a friend to animals.
7. A Socut obeys orders of his parents. Patrol Leader and Scoutmaster
without question.
8. A Scout smiles and whistles under all difficulties.
B.   A Scout is thrifty.
Ifl. A Scout is clean In thought,
word nnd deed.
We know that bb a rule, the boy will
not take up with any amount of keenness those things which tend to make
him a better man. Time has proven,
however, that the activities of the
Hoy Scouts Association hove overcome this difficulty.
How do we know this? BecouSe in
lho majority of cases It Is the boy
who goes to the grown-up and requests that the activities of the Boy
Scouts bo started, clearly proving,
thoy do appeal to the boy.
Scouting ls for renl live boyB, and
has a spirit of romance throughout
the whale program which holps to

At the annual mooting of tho Baptist Church held recently a very encouraging report of the condition of
tho church finances was presented,
and reports from all departments revealed a healthy condition ot the
church in general. In spite of the removals from tho district of some members thero was an increase of eighteen

twfurther gross income of $391.6S, and
in addition the sum of $150 was rais-
od by the Bible Class for the education of children in India, under a
Baptist missionary. Tlie Ladies' Aid
and Mission Circle showed an income

That evening another ceil came in-, for the mining industry of the coun-
:i blaze at the new Eye house on Fen-
vick Avenue being the scene of the
trouble. A neighbor looking into the
.louse sew one room in a blaze and
promptly turned in tlie alarm. It appeals that Mr. Bye, who was busy
that day removing into the new house,
had only been away for a few minutes,
and in the meantime a congoleum rug
which had been stood in a corner to
thaw out before being lMd, had fn
some way fallen so as »o come In
contact with the stove, causing the
momentary blaze whicli had been
se'.n. The damage to the house Is
estimated at about "1125, consisting
mostly of damaged plaster and walls
that will have to be reflnisned. The
dense black smoke from the burning
rug played hr.voc wllh the new decorations in all the rooms.
tho position of the Oliver administration is expected to be precarious, said
Mr. Mclnnes.
En route to Ottawa trekking nlong
toward the mecca of all good Liberals
these days, W. B, Mclnnes, of Vancouver, who went down to defeat in
the recent Federal elections carrying
the Liberal standard in the lied Deer
constituency, stopped off at Calgary
last week. Mr. Mclnnes had intended proceeding straight to the
capital, but upon tho request of
deputation of Hed Deer, Stettler and
Pcnbold citizens, who mot tho train,
decided to break his journey.
Mr. Mclnnes Is going to Ottawa at
the request of Hon. W. L. Mackonzh
King, though further than making tills
statement he refused to commit himself.
According to Mr. Mclnnes conditions on tho coast in respect to unemployment are still demanding the
serious nttenlinn of both the civic and
provincial authorities- "Vancouver
will always face a problem with regard to unemployment during the
wlntor months, because tho unemployed Insist upon taking advantage
of our mild climate," he declared.
In speaking of the political situation provincially, the visitor offered
tho opinion that the Oliver government was facing a dilemma, which
would bo intensified were Dr. J, H
King to loavo the cabinet to accept a
federal portfolio, as rumor Insists he
intends to do. At thc present time
tho Liberal government In this
province commands a strnlght majority of two, but with tho recent resignation of M A. Macdonald In Vancouver, and tho retirement from the

To the Business Men and Citizens
of Cranbrook and District
The Animal Meeting nf the Cranhrook and District
Agricultural Association was called to be held in the City
llnll on January (Ith and was advoriised accordingly in
tho local papers for three weeks prior to that date. Only
six persons showed interest enough in the work of the
association to be in attendance, and it was therefore impossible to proceed with tbe election of officers for the
year, or to deal with the business of the association.
In view of the lack of interest shown, tbe Directors
have decided that until such time us the citizens of the
city and district show some inclination to support the
directors, no further meetings will be called, and in this
connection would like to address a few questions to the
business men of Cranbrook:
Do you wish to have the people of the surrounding
districts come to Cranbrook and do business with you?
Do you want to have Fall Fairs held "in Cranbrook, and
thus brin&the outside people in, or do you prefer to have
some other centre in the district promote the Fairs and
attract the people away from Cranbrook? Do you want
to assist in building up tbe agricultural communities
around ('ranbrook, thereby enlarging your opportunities
'for doing business?
If you are interested in these matters now is the time
and opportunity for you to get busy.
By order of the Board of Directors,
W. M. Harris, Secretary. PAOE    TWO

As to the Conservative view,
there is little yet to be said. It
is well known that some advances have been made to a few
who are looked upon as being
of some influence iu tlte party
to bring their weight to bear
for an acclamation. This only tends all the more to incense

it is safe to say thai what thc

The atmosphere of the city

it has become generally accepted that Mr. R. E. Beattie, the

It will bo remembered, a month or
six weeks ago when the Pooley charges were mado on the floor of the
Provincial House against Dr, Baker,
Farris came to the rescue of tho accused chairman of the Gamo Board.
Instead of holding an enquiry there
and then, as was asked for, Mr. Farris
threw the matter over and arranged
to have the hearing of the charges beforo Magistrate Shaw instead of before a committee of the Legislature.
Thero was method in tho Farris
planning. It is now in evidence. Delay in holding the hearing enabled
lilm to get away and later to resign
as attorney-general.
A day or two ago, Inspector Hird,
forth to lead people to the impression that the district as a
whole is very anxious to tender
Dr. King an at-clamatibu. One
cannot feel, however, that Dr.
King and others interested in
the matter from an intimate Liberal standpoint, really believe
this. Tlie rank and file of the
Liberal party in Cranhrook and
other parts of the riding are irreconcilably opposed to any
such course as is now proposed.

Is Difficult and (lulls For
Careful Handling
The Vancouvor World, now an in-
V'Jed chi-ti-Tion of __ii...r-i.Um at ihe
Coast, prints the following recently
In regard to tho forthcoming provincial conference or cauo ifi of lhe por-
tv which takos pltlM next wool; at
Victoria. It Is noteworthy that even
in this quarter lt is thought advis*
able to take cognizance of the attitude
of hostility to the government which
it states "was common a tow months
ago." Thero is also an apparent anxiety to bolittlle the withdrawal of David Whiteside, of New Westminster,
from tho party caucus last session.
Admission is also made, it is noted,
that thc game board enquiry has unearthed some irregularities which the
World calls "smoking out guilty employees." But is not tho government
to be held responsible for the work-
of (lie Gamo Board?    Yet again
Inquiry to do tho   government   any
good," said Premier Oliver recently.
Many people Including myself had
idea thut Baker was handling
things loosely. It was our duty thon
have all these things cleared up.
This tho government has endeavored
to do."
The premier Is not worried about
the political situation or the outcome
of the game board Inquiry, Neither
aro members or the cabinet, who declare that thero has already started In
favor of tho government a reaction
against the series of wild charges
with which attempts were made to incite the peoplo against tho premier
and Ills ministers.
The premier explains that tho conference was arranged before the close
of lafct session as a continuation of
tho party caucus to discuss party
welfare. As such It wmi/hl he attended
only by Liberals who aro membera of
tho legislature.
A llttlo later, the premier said,
Job, Conloy suggested that tlto members of tho executive or Ilie ProvtnotO.1
Liberal Association would appreciate
tho opportunity of meeting with the
Liberal members,
Premier Oliver will mako no fore
casts as to iho outcome of tho con

right to decide what Is to be done.
both as regards general party policy
and tho by-elect Ions and the personal
pf those who will he called to the
Tho premier replied that tho gathering of membors had heen arranged
as a caucus, and as such only membors could attend. Ho suggested,
however, that there was nothing to
prevent the provincial executive meet
ing in Victoria at the same time. He
said that he would propose to the caucus that the members of the executive
ho Invited before the caucus to express their views. Mr. Conley agreed
to this.
Botli Independent and Liberal members declare that nothing is to be
gained by a general election at this
lime as the only alternative at presont to the present government is one
under Mr. Bowser, und it has now be-
ocme a tradition in this province that
Mr. Bowser is not under any consideration to go back Into office.

Automobile owners will have to pay

than in 1021, according to an enactment mnde during tbe last session of
tho Provincial House.
Tlie old rate was estimated on the

based on 90 units. Thus to find the
price of a license for an auto the selling prico is taken; to tbis is added
Its weight. The sum of these two
figures is multiplied by tlie number

As an example a car may be taken
of which the Belling price is $2500 and

Last week's Creston Review published ou Ita front page u letter headed "The Plight of tiie Creaton Taxpayer—by one of them," showing very
forcibly the treatment tiie man on the
lund ia receiving at tlie hand* of the
Oliver government, and how this policy Is Koing to tend to "foster'' this
essential Industry. Presumably what
is true of tho Creston district ts also
true In other unorganized sections,
whero levy is made by Victoria direct

"Of course every owner of property
recognises thai be Is liable to pay in

and he can assume tlmt If the assessment throughout thin district was
equally   done   very   little   would    bo

has boen common knowledge for sev*
ernl years tlmt tlie assessment in this
district lias been, to nay tiio least, very
erratic. Whether tbis bus been due
to carelessness, incompetence aud political spito, It Ih necctisury to enquire. Tlie fact remains that whllo
many properties nro or have been
Kroatly undervalued ninny otlier properties have, in tho opinion of tlieir
owners, been greatly over valued.
And such over-valuations cannot'long*
er remain unchallenged. Mnny complaints uro made of assessments liav*

year's valuations wero felt to bo as

"It must not bo forgotten that the
general effect of theso increases is
that we ure not now called upon to
pay, hut four times what we were
paying. Let us take a concrete case
wiiero tiie property was valued at
$1000. Previous to 1917 the provincial taxes on tliis valuation amounted
to $5. In 1917 a surtax of an equal

$545,000 for tho district, Tliis valuation of $546,000 Is about the same as
lasl year's assessment, while this
year's assessment for provincial tax
purposes appears lo be in most cusos
approximately double the school tax
assessment. We may. therefore, as-
sumo a valuation for provincial tax'
purposes of say, $1.000,000—which, ut
1 per cent, will yield $10,000.
