Open Letter to Hon.
Richard McBride
Sir: In common with many others
who imvo iiml following tho political
u It uu tion in this country. I have lm-
j'.un to wonder if vou ndetittntoly ap*
inclit'tid tin* dangers surrounding tlu*
ci ni so which, lo my mind, you heedlessly arc lietil upon pursuing, I
have not tlm honor of your acquaint
iiiut, hui current history has credited you witli considerable political
sagacity, and your numerous ottlog-
isis describe you as one whoso earn-
••st desire is to advance the bod Interests t,f the province over whose
destinies you have Itccn called upon
to preside.
Vou have been first minister of
liritisli Columbia (or six or seven
years, and ihe experience you have
Imtl in thai capacity must have been
of Inestimable value. it It lias
taught yni anything, it is tho elementary tact that only those measures which promote Ihc happiness
and prosperity of the people are worthy the attention of our public men
and nothing is so rain or derogatory
to the general ucod as political expediency, opportunism and the so
called general party strategy which
nourishes so polsonously iu the ward
politics of corruptly governed countries.
If yon have not attained that state
of in imi which regards actual ac-
ehieveiiu'iit in the interests ot Ihc
country as something which trans-
cowls all considerations cl personal
advancement or political cia'.Ulton,
your whole public record is r.othlng
hut a breath and some day yet) will
have descended to the sorrowful obscurity of the fa len star, and sonic
other human sky-rocket will blaze
forth   in your plan*.
Today then1 is an issue of the
greatest importance before the
people of Canada. Vou have decided
to take om* side with all the inilu-
(iiec at your Command, In all seriousness I ask if you gave to this
subject tlie careful thought ai.d study
ii deserved before you leaped Into
the struggle? Did you earnestly consider the possibility of freer trade
relations between Canada and tlie
I nit. (I States being in the best in-
tcresta ut this country? Have you
ad pted the viow that now is the
time when a public man occupying a
high position in the laml should be
hifl enough to put tbe welfare of the
state above part) pain cr personal
political glory?
When Mr. Ridding, the Canadian
finance minister, presented tbc reciprocity proposals to parliament at
Ottawa, two courses lav before you.
One was to wholly refrain irom participating in what belonged to the
tictil ot federal polity. Vou could

" Kootenay Is For King"
Great fleeting in Fernie Makes This Fact Abundantly Clear—Wage Earners of Crows Nest Pass
Alive to Their Own Interests
Fernie, Scptf 11 —Lasi night's
rally in lhe Interest of the candidature of Dr. King, of Uranhroolc, was
by far the largest ami most en-
Ihi.siast lo pi I il leal yH he ring e. er
held in Kootenay. Tlie meeting t.i
tlie night In-fore, at whicli Premier
Meltridc, Hon. W. it. Ross, and the
flowery talker from Itosslatrd, Mr.
(Ioodevc, tlie candidate who stands
against ihe opening of tho markets
of this great coal producing dis-
tclci to lhe people without restrictions upon the necessities of every
iluy life, large as it wus, sunk into
Insignificance when compared willi
the crowds whiciT turned out through
rain and mud to greet ami listen to
King, who is for Kootenay*
Long before the time for opening
tho meeting it became evident that a
hall which was big enough to accommodate the aittH-crowd of the night
heft re, would be entirely too small
to hold ihc gathering crowd lust
Mr. Diithic, the chairman, announced to the people in the Grand
theatre, which was full to overflowing, that ii was lieing arranged to
open the Fernie opera house for the
accommodation of the hundreds win
could not gel into tlie Grand. He
stated tbnt Mr. M. It. Macdonald
wi uld address lhe overflow mooting
at lho Fern.e, while Dr. King spoke
to tlu* vast assembly in the Grand.
At the close of I)r. King's address,
he went to the Fernie, ami Mr.
Macdonald came over lo take tho
doctor's place on the Grand platform.
No such a meeting has cvet? been
assembled at a political gathering in
the Koolenay. Two opera houses
filled with people, who were unmls,
takabty in harmony with the speak
t rs of the evening, was the answer
given to the mooting ol the night
before, when but one lull was filled
with a turbulent, dissatisfied audience
which showed •unmistakably, its hostility to the cause, or rather lack
of cause for which the distinguished
speakers ol that occasion pleaded In
The fun began early in the day
when the Liberal candidate arrived
from Michel and was mel at the
station hy the Italian hand and a
throng of peo'ilc who marched ti
tbe  hi tel with their candidate.
Again, al si\ o'clock lhe baud wa*
at the station to meet n s-Jecial
roach from Craubroi k bearing a delegation of enthusiastic King supporters.
With a banner benring the campaign cry. "King for Kootenay," at
the head >f the procession, it again
marohed to ti-*1 hotels followed by
hundreds of people.
••Kin: f"i Koolenay," was on the
banner, it was on the lips of Ibc
people, and     lasl   night  it  was plain
(Special to the Herald!.
to be seen lhal "King for Km tc-
nay" was in Uw hearts of the greal
throng Unit gatlkorod to listen to
the plain talk of the speakers. Dr.
King makes no pretentions to oratory,      lb* confined himself lo what
lie called llle sole issue of Ihc campaign, reciprocity, and while nol being ashamed nj all of Die Liberal
party, its principles, which be heartily endorsed, or its greal leader, one
ul the greal statesmen ot ihe age,
yet In* refiiBcil lo he considered n
candidate, for Ihc house of commons
upon any oilier Issun, except that
which is directly at stake, and foe
which alon:1 lie asked the support of
every voter in the district of Kootenay.
Void of all semblance of polities,
the candidate spoke for an hour, never rising above a conversational
ti nc, never once striking a declamatory attitude. The (lector went into   the details of the proposed trade
[pact, dwelling especially upon those
portions of it whicli deal directly
With lhe everyday life of the people
li    whom he was talking.
• lie was grcelcd with a round ot
applause when Clraiomnn Duthto introduced him, which compelled him
to stand wailing for iis subsidence,
before   he could make   himself heard.
;   Again, at tli"  close it was repeal
ed, and    the candidate sal down after  having   convinced     his    hearers
that   he   wus on   the    right side <f
the   righl question.
At litis polnl iu lhe proceedings,
Mr. A. I. Fisher, u favorite speaker
with Fernie audiences, spoke for 20
minutes, dealing with I he Yen ilie
[•light Hour Labi r bill, a subject
which he proved to the satisfaction
of his big audience, hud beeu deliberately juggled with by Mr. Gcodeve
in an at tempi ti ilslead tht wurfc-
ingmen of this district into the belief thai the Liberal governmenl al
Ottawa hud undertaken to mutilate
and destroy that bill.
Mi. Fisher had the whole of
Hansard to quote from nnd made
ii perfectly plain to the audience

over liis own signature to produce
li, full tt. the District Ledger the record In relation lo the Taylor Incident in the house ol commons,
thai that gentleman had sent only
n portion ol Hansard hearing Upon
ihis matter,
Turning to J. W. Bennett, the
tiUtor ol the Ledger, who occupied
a seat on the platform, that gentleman confirmed Mr. Fisher's statement, and Mr. 0 leve, by offending

Talk on Poultry.
Rev. W.  E.  Dunham Gives an
Interesting Address on Poultry
Breeds and Breeding.
A small but very much iutereB-
tt'il [guttieriug ussetnbletl in tli,-
(lyiiiiinsiiitii uf llm Methodist
(Jhurch on Wrilni'sday evening, ll!
tin- regular monthly meeting ol
tlm Cranbrook Farmers Institute,
to lienr.an address by llov. \V. Iv
Dunham on "Poultry Onoils nml
Breeding." Among other things
Mr. Dunham said:
"The Iirsl point for us to ileeiilr
tonight is, 'In Poultry lireeils uml
Breeding what is it we desire?1
Do we wish to breed (jotiltry ns u
fancier, or do we wish to breed
from a utilitiy stunil jioint, i.e.
for market fowl anil egg prorluc-
lion. I'crsonnlly 1 think il would
lie iu the liest interests of tin
Poultry industry here and everywhere else, if llie object aimed al
is utility stoek. Mow my reason
for saying this is, tlmt the fanciers
frequently lose sight of the mon
meritorious qualities ot their fowls
for the sake of feat In rs of the
right hue or marking, or a comb
if proper sizes or shape. To me
these are very desirable points
when tlie winning of prizes is the
object desired, but of very littii
moment when the ponltryuiuii it
•lidiavollng to supply his' market
(or the consumer. I am positively
averse to encouraging poultryuien
to seek (or remuneration tluough
prizewinners. This system leads
tu trickery, deception, and all the
evils to which so many keepers of
poultry seem prone to become the
victims. Do not nilsuudoretanil
me. 1 do not advocate indifferent
breeding but I do advocate vigoi
as a more important feature to tin
practical poultryman than fea
"This leads uie lo enunciate I,
few general principles that apply
to all breeds anil lo all classes ol
poultry. The lirst 1 have already
mentioned, viz:- Vigor. It is useless for you to expect these success
due you if you persist in ignoring
this very essential quality. Vigor
is the result of breeding and cine,
but very frequently the progenv
nf strong productive stock is weak
uml lacking iu the very essentials
which have made the parents | n -
Stable. This is due to the setting
of eggs at a |h rhal when the laying
fowls are weakened through long
und continuous production, Von
should breed friim heavy layer*
early in the pcriial ,,f their pro.
duction. It may lie that lack ol
vigor is the result of poor selection
in the male bird, Tho male
should be strong, straight legged,
.tardy, and not awkward or clumsy,   Or lack of vigor may be the
result of poor care in the growing
stage, Keepyour growing ohioks
working, keep them clean, feed
them well, but dn not force the
growth with soft mushy food. 1
can not too often repeat tliu point,
aim for vigor all the time.
"A second general principle to
whicli I will refer in a term perhaps now to you. thut is hulance.
By balance I mean that you
should seek for breeding birds, the
well proportioned fowl. A well
balanced bird, legs not too long or
awkwark, neck fairly short.
eliminating that gawky, stupid appearance so often met with. A
good breeding fowl musl be a good
worker, to be a good worker a mini
a horse, or a fowl must lie well balanced, Dont lose sight of this
very essential general principle."
Conservative Journals art- [(noting
sir Charles Topper against reciprocity. In 1807 Sir diaries Tupper
was uulto sure that tin: Liberal
tarifl containing the liritisli protoc-
unco would ruin Canadian Industry.
Hero is what he said un April 'Mi,
"Tlie result is that lliis tariff goes

ilia; them in tlm face a return tn
the deplorable stale ol thinrs thai
existed when tho lion, gciitlrinun
wlm last, addressed the house was iu
charge of the fiscal policy. 1 say
hnl a deeper wrong was never inflicted upon Canada."
Sir Charles Tupper was a had prophet in 18!<7. Is he tn he regarded
as an infallible judge ol reciprocity,
iu lull?

Mr. Wotklngmati:—
A  word with you, please!
Let's get away from the election
clamor for a minute—down to brass
tacks  on this reciprocity question.
Do you know what il means tor
you—free trade in ford.' That's all.
IL takes the taxes oil what you
eat—saves you something that way
on every meal. Last year Canadians paid over a million dollars in
duties on food imported from tho
United States.
More than that, it gives you leave
to huy what you like, when you
like, where you like al thu last
You have noticed how the price ol
canned goods has gone up recently.
The farmers haven't got the extra
money. It has simply lieen squeezed
out of you by the canncrs' combine,
who are enabled by the presenl
duty to fix prices to suit them-
selves—what they charge you as Well
as what tliey pay the farmer.
Reciprocity will take oil half 1*hc
taxes on some of these goods ami
will reduce the taxes on all ol
Do you sec the point? Free trade iu
toot) and belter meals ami less t
pay. That's what reciprocity
means for you.
Vote for King ami iteciprocity.

for, and now occupied hy, The
Davis Bros. Electric Co., Ltd, The
eonsirnction of this store mark.s an
eprch in the history ct the electrical

Cranhrook is advancing steadily. It
is conceded by all wlm have had the
pleasure of a visit to this store,
that it is the most up-to-date electrical supply store in the interior,
and even in much larger cities, one
rarely runs across such a well-equipped store. The fittings and fixtures
arc arranged in such a manner as to
enahle the salesmen to show goods
to the hest advanlage, and the dark
room allows one tu see the effect of
various lights and fixtures, in hroail
daylight as well as they could he
seen on the darkest night. The
Davis Brothers, consisting of Mr. .1.
E. Davis, and of Mr. Edgar Davis.
are both young men, who have lived
in Cranhrook long enough to need no
further introduction here, they have
learned a great part of the husiness
here, ami the enterprise shown by
litest* men, in taking the control nf
such a big concern, is worthy of the
utmost support.
Mr. .1. E. Davis is now away .on
an extensive trip to coast prints,
ar.tl while it is not strictly a business trip, he "will he on the lookout
for new ideas, anil Cranbrook citi-

call myself a fairly good Canadian,

Dry Farming
Lethbridge Expects   to   Secure
1912 Meeting.   Actively Backed
by Cranbrook and B. C.
Tlmt Lethbridge will hnvo lho
siijipnrl nf liritisli Columbia in its
effort tn laml the Dry Furming
Congress for 1912 was tlio oheer.
iug news given to tho Lethbridge
Hi mill by J. W. Nichol, chairman
of the Dry farm committee of tbe
Board of Trade, Mr. Nichol returned on Wednesday morning
from a trip lo t'ranbrook. and was
much elated with llie success of
his mission,and ho feels more con-
lidenl than over tlmt the much
coveted congress will come lo
Lethbridge, Canada, nest year.
"I .got everything t went after,"
■..iii! Mr. Nichol. "and everything
looks liriuht for our plans. When
I gut to t'ranbrook the Hoard oi
Trade very kindly called a special
meeting, and I laid before
what wo wanted, They f
with the suggestion readily, and
before the meeting was over, u resolution was passed endorssing the
ell'orts of Lethbridge to secure the
Dry Farming Congress for 1912,
and offering their sup'port at the
congress at Colorado Springs this
full. They think the idea a good
one, and will do everything possible to bring B. O. into line.
"While at Craubrook I uIbo met
Premier McBride, nnd had a very
satisfactory interview with him on
the same question. He, too, is
very much iu favor of the movement, and promised that British
Columbia would be represented at
the Congress in October, and that
the It. C delegates would do all in
Iheii lower In help Lethbridge
1 ind I I.i ii(.r ss for nest year.
"He also promised that llritish
Columbia would be willing to contribute to the tiuiiucinl support of
the undertaking, nnd while he
ooukl promise nothing definite
without consulting liis colleagues,
it may be taken for granted that
British Colombia will give not
only its moral, but also its linaii
ciiil aid to the undertaking."
With British Columbia in line,
all that now remains to be done it
lo get the support of the Satk;it
chewiin government. Mr. Nichols
will make n trip to Iteginu for the
purpose of luyine, the matter before them before the end of the
month, and there is not the least
question that the support of the
Saskatchewan people will mean
thut the three western provinces
are in line, and with the support
of the Croat Falls and Montana
people, liesiiles the assurance of
the support of tho delegates of several other states, and of the Great
Northern Railway, there steins to
be no doubt that Lethbridge will
succeed in landing the 1H12 meeting of tho International Dry Farming Congress. Mr. McNichnl and
his committee is working hard to
this end, ami success will attend
their efforts.
Favor Pact.
Five Hundred Wentworlh, Ont.,
Growers Unanimously Support Liberal Candidate.
Hamilton,   Ont.,   Sept.   14	
When the reciprocity agreement
was announced, its strongest opponents were the fruit growers of
Wentworth and surrounding coun
ties, but from the way the wind
has been shifting during the last
two weeks, the same fruit growers
with tho exception of three in the
combine- E, D, Smith,T. II.Carpenter and the Ontario Fruit Co.,
will be the issue's greatest, sup-
porters. Two weeks ago literature
ox*, mining in detail the new arrangement, was sent by W. ().
Scaly, formerly M.l\, to nil the
fruit growers of the surrounding
country. Today it was proven beyond doubt that the fruit growers
are strong for the pact, when they
understood it in its entirety. To
the number of nearly live hundred
they gathered at a meeting held by
the Liberal candidate and passed
unanimous resolutions in favor of
the agreement. This will prove a
big feature for the liberals, who
are dependent ou the fruit growers
votes in this district,
