attention of the board of trude hy aevernl who hud heen unfortunate to arrive ut the spot in Ihe evening too late

state, off affairs like this would not be
so bud if Enstport offered any Hccom-
modntlon for Btrantled travellers who
found themselves caught in this way.
But on  the authority of those  wlio
know the location of things, it is said
that the place could only give accommodation—and that of a kind—to not
more than a dozen .people overnight)
and hence it was felt that something!
A. Y. Skalen and his nephew, Mr
Carlson, who arc the purchasers ot
the Brown fann at    Creston    mentioned   above,  came   to  this  district
from C'amrose this spring, and have
been farming a short distance north
of the city.       They   are moving to
Creston this week It is understood to
take over their new orchard property.
Another deal of some Importance is
chronicled by tbe Review as follows:

Well, they've come and gone. And
they wertj "sumo" parly. For two
consecutive week-ends Cranbrook had
the unique experience of entertaining
a party of boys. For the visitors

any rate, for all that tbey represent

Almost every line of business waa represented in the visitors — retailer,
wholesaler, jobber, manufacturer, insurance anil linanclal men,, but
lo meet and talk with them one would
nave thought they hadn't a care In
.ie world of a business nature. They
were for ull the world like a bunch
of big boys out on a sight-seeing tour,
which tliey were, as a good many ot!
them frankly avowed, lt was information they were looking for, of tlie
kind that would help them get a better idea of the resources, extent, need,
and development of their province. Ho
busy have they been on their nuest
for information, their .program of
sight-seeing and their round of enter-
tertainment und hospitality incidental to the tri]), that some were heard
to remark although they bad not
seen daily papers for four days they
had apt missed them, iiaving been too
busy to look at one, even if they had
wanted to.
This is tic fifth excursion of Its kind

by a considerable number of tow
people sat down in the Masonic Hail to
a light banquet, or more properly perhaps, u luncheon. It wus a repast well
united to the warm and somewhat sul-
jtry evening, and consisted of salads
land various cold collations and dea-
'sert dishes tbat tempted and satisfied
where a heavy banquet menu would
have been too much. Hurry's White
Lunch did the entering and no one
was heard to complain on that score,
but not a f* w did take the trouble to
speak commendably of the repast.
Some mention ought to be made of
tlit musical propensities of these erstwhile staid and dignified business meu.
\V. W. Wolf en den, manager of the Columbia Paper Co., seemed to be chop,
ister-in-chief,       songster-ln-ordlnary,
precentor, or whatever it might be to
the party, and an enquiry from one of
them  directe.l at  huge as to "What
day is It?" was tiie signal for a musical  review  of the days of the  week,
which made It quite plain that even
though they were far from home they
remembered that Monday was "washday" and ever to be remembered as
such, and Sundny as a day for bated
breath.     Apart from the "yells" making it quite clear to all and sundry
within a mile or so as to who they
were, what they were doing and where
they were from, they got off another
clever musical number, when during
he course of the meal on Saturday ev.

to tbe effect that a certain local celebrity, who of course was present t"
gel  the benefit of it, "had a farm-"
Then followed a sort of pastoral rhapsody telling about the cows, the pigs
the chickens, and the Ford cars ecu
nected with the suid ranch.    It was a
well-executed stunt that brought the;
house down.
President Spreull called for order
in due course and the customary toast
to the King wns honored by singing
the national anthem-
Mayor Genest was then called upon
to extend a welcome to the visitors,
which he did briefly. Mr. Spreull al-
added a few words of welcome, and
also outlined the program for the outing the following day which hat been
There were a number of toasts down
on the program, and In speaking and
responding to these there was a happy vein of Jocularity struck, which In.-1
deed may be said to have been the
keynote running through the entire
party during their stay here. Nevertheless, in spite of the flow of wit
that was let loose, and the quips and
jokes that were flying back and forth,
there was enough real meat sandwiched between to provide food for
thought, and to rewal the fact that
after all the purple of the men was
set In something real and earnest —■
that they were, as they said, out to
learn and not to teach-

their work ls done, but the lumberman leaves the ground ready for the
armer's operations. Dwelling hum
irously upon some anecdotes relat-
.itg to green lumbermen and strikes,

To admit one's ignorance is
the first stej) in acquiring
knowledge. Tlie Board of
Trade visitors from Vancouver
who were here last week were
not at all backward in admitting that they did not know
much about the real slate of affairs in the Kootenay district,
that is, of course, speaking generally. It augurs well lor the
future of tlie province when its
business men get possessed of
the idea that they must learn
more what the true conditions
are lu other parts of their
province. Not only will business relations become better
established on a basis of mutual
understanding and personal acquaintance, but a widened
knowledge of conditions most
certainly fits one to pass more
Intelligently upon questions of
national or provincial moment.
The visitors made it quite
plain that they thoroughly appreciated the hospitality extended to them during tlieir stay
In this city. Cranbrook lias the
reputation of being a hospitable place, and a good name in
this connection is worth a good
deal to any place. We all like
to share the credit for doing
things well, but ll seems In this
case, as often proves the case,
alas, that the real credit belongs
to a faithful h;i|f flossen who
were willing to sacrifice their
own personal Interests for such
time as was necessary to do the
Job In hand properly.
At the tender age of one
week, the Labor News is a
foundling, cast out on lu tlie
doorstep to perish. Abandoned or repudiated by its progenitors, no one can be found who
will take up and nurture the
precocious infant. Nor is this
at all to be wondered at when

libillty on the otlier, if was to
wonder, then, that the child at
birth proves a misshapen flibbertigibbet.
There are two praiseworthy
features in connection with tbe
lirst number of which mention
might be made. Thc first is Ihe
title of the paper—if only it
lived up to its name, there
would be no further criticism to
be made of it - and Ihe typographical appearance of the
sheet, which is better than the
[nature Of the contents deserve.
Having said this, the less said
about the rest of it thc better.
It is sailing under false colors.
To a paper really "published in
the interests of labor" kind
words of welcome could be extended, but such slush aud Insipidity, with a certain spicing
of innuendo and vituperation
as filled the reading matter
columns of the first issue, does
not in any way tend towards
the best interests of labor in ge-
neral. It tends to class hatred
and bigotry of the worst kind,
and to abuse a man first, and
then hope to argue with him, is
not only folly, but shows a very
scant knowledge of human nature.
When tlie scheme for the
genesis of the Labor News first
took shape under the bonnet of
the person who became the editor, lie approached the Herald
to undertake the printing thereof. A little inquiry into the 1110-
ive for the publication convinced us, however, that it was far
from being aii honest, sound
business proposition. That
our judgment was uot a bit too
harsh has now been proven. We
refused to become associated iu
any way with an avowed fly-by
night venture of this kind, and
did not hesitate to state that
not only would the cause of labor receive absolutely no uplift
from such a paper, but its publication along such doubtful lines as were so frankly laid down
would actually prove a detriment to the very same cause
it was ostensibly designed to
help, its first number proves
that in no sense of the word is
tlie paper entitled to call itself
the Labor News. It Is a mere
get-rlch-quick scheme of a
smart wit, covered with a borrowed cloak to give semblance
of something else than its true
In refusing to be party to the
birth of such a misbegotten idea into a world that is already
desperately tired of shams, the
Herald used just plain, ordinary judgment, the same as the
merchants and business men
who were approached as prospective advertisers, and decided
it didn't look good to them. To
those whose advertisements do
grace its columns we would suggest that if they are advertising witli thc proper motive, that

•THE horse has been declared by Thomas Edison to be the most inefficient
J- machine in the world. In return for the amount of food and care needed,
the horse returns less in work than any other machine.
The avenue team of farm horses costs $400, a
good Mt of double harness $100, a wagon without
box $118, making a total of $615.
A Ford Truck costs $760 at Ford, Ont A Fordson
Tractor costs $860 at Dearborn Mich.
The initial cost of motorizing a farm is slightly
greater than the cost of a horse outfit, but the lower
cost of operation and upkeep of the tractor and truck
and the greater amount of work done easily put
the horse out of the running.
Government experiments have proved that the cost
of feeding a hone is 8.7 cents per working hour.
A team of horses cannot plow more than two acres
in a tea-hour -day. At 8.7 cents per hour or 17.4
cents per hour for ajteam, the cost would be $1.74,
or ST ctmtt an acrt. A Fordson Tractor plows on an
average of seven acres a day. The cost per acre
averages not more than Tf cento per acre for gas and
oil. The Fordson does three and a half tunes as
much plowing in a day at a smaller cost per acre.
Suppose you are hauling produce to market or bringing out supplies. If the town is twenty miles away it
will take you a whole day to make the return trip
with horses. If you have a heavy load and the
weather is hot it will take you two days. If it took
you twelve hours, the cost at 17.4 cents an hour for
your team would be$B.09. The average cost of running a Ford Truck, for gas and oil, is 4 W cents a mile
or $1.80 for the forty miles. But with the Ford
Truck you can make the return trip in four hours.
The truck enables you to make three times as many
trips and at a lower cost per trip.
But this is not all. If you motorize your farm you
can get up an hour later in the morning. You have
no horses to feed, groom or harness. You start work
after breakfast.
When dinner is ready you stop at the end of the field,
drive your tractor direct to the house, eat your dinner,
and rest till it is time to go to work again.
In the afternoon your motor works just as well though
the sun is hot and the flies are bad.
And at night when work is over you are through for
the day,---no horses to rub down, feed or water.
You are always free to leave your farm for picnic or
vacation—no worry about horses left behind to be
cared for.
Every way you look at it the motor has the advantage over the horse.   It
means shorter hours on the farm, more work done in less time and at less cost.

"But the realization oL social ad

brought better roads. The economic value of well-paved highways has
appealed to both the legislator and
the taxpayer. The farmer, the most
conservative of mortals, In tho spending ot money, wns almost tho lirst
to see the value of good roada In tho
merchandising of his products, and

The importance of*siueltlng was also touched on by Mr, Thompson. In
view of the nature of the complex ores
now found lu tho province, their treatment by complete analysis was of the
utmost Importance. The question of
treating custom ores at the smellers
was also of worthy of attention, said
Mr. Thompson.
"Iron is worth more than gold." he
snld, In referring to the possible development of the iron ore deposits In
this vicinity. He also suid it was a
probability now that Iron nnd steel
works would be established in this
province. He himself had become sal-
Islied that there was 11 market for
iron and steel products to the value of
between two and threo million dollars
per year up and down the Pacific
coast. It was economically unsound
to export the raw material, and later
import it as e finished product, and attempt to build up a manufacturing In
dustry on that basis.
In conclusion. M*j. Thompson spoke
of the interest this trip had for him.
ami he. too. hoped there would some
time be a return trip to tlie Coast

mar Koouaay business men who are

there was a danger ol the buBlnesB

and said that as visitors they wen
very much impressed with the good

ihe matter of having the missing portions of Urn main trunk roads filled
in. Realizing the importance of roods
ot this kind to tho province, they were
looking forward to bettor times in regard io trunk roads, tourist highways,
after all, being a secondary consideration. Mentioning the -'Kootenay tourist circuit" Mr. Frlnd said that while
financial considerations cad held back
Its completion, they wore hopeful for
for it, and "a tit tU patience goes a
long way," he said. On the set
publicity, Mr. Frind admitted thut thc
Coast as a whole did not know vei
much about the KooUmnys—and pe
haps the converse was also true. The
Coast did not know what Hi' Kootenay
i had in the way of scenic inducements
ard est' blished industries, and so the
different boards of trade should get
together on the question nf putting
B.C. on tho map, as it were.
Mr. F. J. Gulmont proposed a toast
I to "Tho Press/1 stating among other
things that they Tell this section

to the time when Cranbrook would

B. A. McKelvle, news editor of the

(oust Writer Loud In Eultfglen
of District Now Being Opened up for Settlement
Writing in the last issue of "Farm
and Home," a Coast journal, F. Lawrence Mtchell records bis impressions
of the Columbia Valley country, from
the point: of view of the home seeker,
In no uncertant tone of eulogy, ns
"I have read and heard so much of
late of the wonders of other valleys J
in tills beautiful B. C, that I sometimes wonder whether each district
possesses a press agent hard at work
to snare the flocks of settlers that
are coming to the province.
"To bogiu with, what more perfect
setting for a farm home than in a
valley nested between the glorious
Rockies and the magnificent Solklrks?
"1 have seen the beauty spots of tho
province fairly extensively, and have
yet to find tlie equal or my home valley from tho scenic point of view. The
district Is traversed through its entire length by the Kootenay Central
railway with, at present, a train each
way twice a week.
"At an elevation of 2800 feet there
is abundant health for man and
beast. Animal diseases are unknown.
The assistant provincial veterinarian
recently refused to waste any more
time coming in to test for tuberculosis. I have never beard of poultry dying anything but a violent death.
"There is a story current here that
a visitor saw an elderly man with
whiskers and a beard sobbing on the
doorstep of a farm house. He ventured to condole, and asked the reason for such grief.
"Said the elderly one aa he knuckled his eyes, 'Pop's jusi given me a
licking for teasing grandad.'
"In view of the fact that the majority of tiie farms are not of large
acreage as yet, it is my opinion that
everybody capable of doing so should
devote his attention to raising pure
bred stock of all kinds, when we
should soon make a name for the district tor breeding stock with tho maximum of health and constitution.
"The northern end of the valley
(which bears the same relation to the
Windermere distrct that the Salmon
Arm district does to tho central Okanagan) is distinctly a mixed farming
and dairy country. Owing to tlie
heavy lime content of the soil, due to
the proximity of tlie Rocky mountains,
alfalfa, clover and the legumes grow
like weeds. I am not saying ft Is
good practice, but there are fields of
clover in the valley tbat have not been
re-seeded for eighteen years. Last
winter was the first winter that any
alfalfa haa been winter killed In the
valley and this was due to the unusual advent of cold weather before
the snow came.
"At the Golden end of the valley
potatoes and other crops are grown
wltliout Irrigation in normal seasons,
and the product Is second to none ln
the world.
"We do not claim to be an apple
growing district, though Wealthy,
Duchess and Transparent and like varieties do excellently, also all varieties of crab apples, but we do not
claim to grow the best small fruit in
Canada. Strawberries, raspberries,
gooseberries and currants give amazing yields and the fact that we are only eight hours away from the prairie
market gives us a great advantage.
To you homeBoekers: stop off at Golden and see for yourselves.
"We want the right kind of fanners
lu increasing numbers.
"The government haa promised to
assist us with a creamery next spring.
"There Ib a scheme on foot for thc
draining of 24,000 acres of bottom
"The Columbia Valley will rank second to none one of these days not
too far distant. Come ln and reap
the advantage of being here early."

Little Girl, Aged Seven, Falls
Over Hank Into Canyon—
Hotly Not Yet Found
Fernie. — Marjorie Harper, tho seven year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
1*3. Harper, of this city, was drowned last Thursday afternoon in the Elk
River Canyon, near Klko, B.C. The
little girl was one of a party of plc>
ulcers who went down to the canyon,
and while playing about the upper
falls, in some way she feel over the
bank and into tho river. The rapidly flowing current took her over tlu
falls and down towards the lower
falls very quickly.
Constable Gorman and a large numlier of helpers have been endeavoring
io recover the body, but the swollen
condition of the river makes it almost
impossible to do anything In the way
of recovery.
Thus within a short time tho Elk
Itiver claims another victim, and on
account of her tender age, the little
child's death has evoked as widespread sympathy as the Telfer tragedy of a short time back.

to the electric light company of $5"\-

I would like to aak you why some of
the licenses exacted by the city are
enforced and others left entirely to
the will of those who should pay them.
I am a Jitney driver and each year
I have been called upon to pay, and
have paid the license required by the
city to carry on this business. Aa you
are aware there are numbers of oth-!
ers, both in town and out, who carry
on this business as well, and yet upon
enquiry at the city office I was surprised to learn that only six licenses
were issued for the current year. I
could'personally give the names of a
score who are plying this trade, many
of them having garages In town wltb
their signs all over, and yet pay no license.
At a time like tlie present when the
city are apparently ln need of all tbe
money they can get hold of, there
should be no excuse for the non-collection of these licenses, and out of
fairness to the few who are at present
called upon to pay this tax I think the
police should be Instructed to keep
their eyes open for anyone soliciting
or accepting fares who haa not the
proper license and in this way the city
would benefit, and no hardship would
