Street Parade
Is Pretty Event
Opening Event on Victoria Day
Makes  flood  Showing-
Home Speeches
Tho street parade on the morning
of Victoria Day, which opened the festivities of tho day, was a real success,
though not materializing quite on the
scalo that was hoped for. Somo
■louts, decorated automobiles and bi-
cycles were In evidence, closo on forty
curs lining up In the procession at the
start. There was a good crowd of
peoplo ou the slrelts to view
thu parade, whicli was headed by a
couple of the Mountles in scarlet.
Tlie parade started from the
Central School grounds, along Cranbrook. street thence along linker street
to the Canadian Pacific Hallway station, where It wheolod around, coming down Baker street to the Govern-
ment buildings and halting
on the grounds around the bandstand
where the prize winners were announced and a few speeches made by prominent citizens In honor of Victoria Day. j
The float by the Cranbrook Public
school represented tlie senior service,,
"Tlie Navy," the girls being nattily
attired In middies and making a fine
effect. The float of the High school
displayed in its decorations its own
colors, purple and gold. The South
Ward school's float depicting a Maypole was appropriate for the month of
May. The Entrance Class's float represented spring. Another float representing a "basket of peaches" was
gptten up by Miss D. Greaves.
Preceding the floats was the clowns'
bund which furnished some fine "music,"' and the merriment these actors
created along the line of the parade
gave a zest and enjoyment that is
sometimes lacking where the order of
the staid brass band usually rules.
There were many automobiles in tlie
lines filled with kiddles with flags tn
their hands, and older children wearing colors marched in procession.
Eighteen decorated bicycles also appeared displaying many pretty schemes
in their decoration, the flower girls
and aeroplane bicycles being very
creditable. The Cranbrook Fire Department auto sporting its bright red
color and some flags was in the line
and the Hobo Band at tlie end of
the parade kept all in high spirits.
Tbe procession was called to attention from the stand and "0 Canada"
was sung.
The prize winners were then announced as follows:
First prize to the Cranbrook Public
Second prize to tlie   South    Ward
Third prize to tho Entrance Class.
Honorable mention was made of the
High School entry,   and   Miss Delia
Greave's "Basket of Peaches."
Decorated Bicycles
First prize awarded Warren  Bowness—Aeroplane.
Secoad prize to Annio Laurie—Flower Girl.
Thc Nattonnl Anthem wns then sung
with great fervor.
Major Hicks announced tho awards
nnd in the absence of His Worship the
Mayor, wlio wns unable to attend, also presided over tho gathering around
the band stand. He extended on be-
hnlf of lhe Mayor nnd the City of
Crnnbrook, a hearty welcome to nil
vltltors nnd expressed the appreciation
he felt of lho labor aid tnergy thnt
hnd been expended by the citizens in
getting up the decorations and floats
nnd participating in the parade so as
to ensure the success of tho celebration. He then introduced the siicakort^
ot tho day.
Uev. F, V. Harrison of Christ church
snld ho felt It it grent honor and privilege io lako part in this celebration,
and greeted tho ladies and gentlemen
nnd the small boys nnd small girls.
Cue got an Idea from the great number of boys and girls thnt Cranbrook
has a very grent IntoreHt In the 24th
of Mny colebmlion. "I huve boon
asked today," Mr. Harrison said, "to
■peak to you of some of the missions
of lhe Victoria Dny celebration, I
remember when i wns quite a small
hoy silting for many hours al n win
dow waiting for Queen Victoria to go
by. 1 saw tlie Queen accompanied by
the soldiers and nlso the mnny carriages (tliere were no autos In those
days) and it waa an interesting scene,
Iu course of time Queen Vlctorln died
and after bcr death tbe nation gnve
her a title "Victoria tho Good." Kings
beforo her tlmo hud been called
"Great" but Queen Victoria had by
her character and example bo endeared the people to her that It was
thought fitting to set aktde a day each
year ln memory of her long reign and
this day, known as Victoria Day, we
are celebrating here ln Cvanbrook.
Her idea*- in life had been too high
standards of honor and justice, to be
above reproach In all walks of Jlfe.
and to lead others ln these channel.
1 The great lesson she has left for the
Empire to follow Is well worthy of our
Interest and attention, and the holding
of the celebration of Victoria Day In
every part of tho Empire Is the highest tribute to ber life and name;"

Mary's Church, wai the next To ad-

Howe's Great London Circus and
Vau Amburg's Trained Wild Anlnal
Shows played a one day engagement
In Cranbrook Monday and turned out
to be a much larger show than
was generally supposed. This was the
first visit of the Howe Circus here and
Its title wns practically unknown except to the old countrymen. The fact
that Its appearance here was but one
duy ln advance of Victoria Day also
had rather a tendency to hold down
the circus receipts In the afternoon,
but in tho evening the big tent was
crowded i
The show was appreciated for Its
Old Country snap and performance,
nnd acts were put on such as are nev-
seen with any other shows but
those of English origin. They were
applauded lavishly.
It was learned that the consolidation of the English Howe syndicate
with its American brother, the Van
Amburg Shows, took place a year ago
last spring and the addition of the
latter's collection of animals immediately put the Howe Circus in the major league of big shows.
The parade which was staged at eleven o'clock was noteworthy,on account of Its brightness of color and
extreme length. Magnificent importations of English cobs and hunters
made the horse display the most spectacular of tiiat of any circus playing
this city. The wild beasts were perfect In appearance and there seemed
to be scores of them.
The Howe dancing horses which
created no little favorable comment
nt the Agricultural Hall during the
London Horse Show proved to he the
big hit of the circus. These twelve
horses were the acme of style and
training and their efforts mat with the
instant approval of lhe audiences.
The Howe Circus made a very favorable impression in Cranhrook and It
was the nearest thing ever staged
here which could compare with the
Old Country Idea. It was good with
a capital G.
A case brought by Mr. C. C. H. Coleman against Mr. Norman Harrison of
Calgary for damages arising out of a
sale of pure bred cattle was heard in
the C-.ll Ccri la»; weci. H vrai regarded as of considerable Interest to
the stock breeders In this district. Mr.
Justice Murphy awarded Mr. Coleman
damages to the 'extent of $2400.00 and
the costs ot the action.
An epitome of the case Is as follows: Mr. C. C. H. Coleman, a rancher of the Windermere District, decided
to go into the pure bred stock business
and with tliis object in view got in
touch with Mr. Norman Harrison, a
stock breeder near Calgary. Mr. Coleman bought some pure bred cattle and
sheep relying Upon Harrison to supply
tlie pedigrees at once. After some delay lho pedigree papers came along
but on perusing same Mr. Coleman
found thnt the cattle were not of the
pedigree represented to him by Harrison. One of the animals was also
physically defective and therefore useless for the purpose purchased for
Hence the action which Mr. Coleman
brought nnd which has been disposed
of by tlie award above mentioned.
Racing on 24th
Proves First Class
Big Crowd on Hand at the Fair
Grounds to See Horse Races
And Foot Events
The program at the fair grounds on
Tuesday proved to be a popular one
Judging by the crowds who attended
and the 100 or more automobiles tbat
were parked ln the enclosure. The
local Indians showed their keenness
for sport us usual, and their entries
are deserving of some creditable mention. The crowds certainly admired
the plucky little Indian who mounted
tlie winners lu the open horse and pony
races and proved on the four runs
that lie could win ou any field. In the
foot racing Mickey Argue seemed to
be ln a class by himself. He Ib very
fast as instanced by the record of the
100 yard dash which he is reputed to
have covered in exactly ten seconds.
The lining up for the horse racing
and trotting is usually a troublesome
matter but under fvte supervision of
Dr. Rutledge little time was lost and
good starts were made in the main,
his services as starter deserving special mention.
The different events resulted as follows:
Foot Races
100 Yards Dash
Starters were Messrs. Morris, Eck-

Result of the race:
M. Argue, lst—Time 10 seconds.

News was received early this morning of an accident on the Canadian
Pacific Railway Kootenay Central
line. As this is the high water season
lt was at first feared that a serious
mishap may have occurred and that
some loss of life ensued. It was
learned that the St. Eugene ambulance bad been called out from the
hospital and that the wrecking train
had left for the scene of the accident,
and also that Superintendent Watson
Hall had gone out lo direct operations. Just before going to press,
however, the Herald lias obtained the
official report of the mishap aa follows:
Light engine No. 3272 was derailed
at mile 28.8 Lake Windermere Subdivision, on May 2€th, Fireman T.
Bronsdon, receiving Injuries to arms
and legs, has been removed to the
hospital, but ls not reported as being
seriously   hurt."

INVERMERE, B.C., May 21.— Arrangements are now being perfected
by the executive of the Associated;
Boards of Trade of South Eastern British Columbia for the holding of their
second annual Get-Together meeting.
The present tentative arrangements
are that it will be held ln Invermere
commencing on Friday, June 3rd. The
members of the Boards ot Trade of
Golden, Fernle, Creston, Cranbrook
and this place are all to be guests of
the united boards, and In addition Invitations are being sent out to the executives of the Mountain Lumbermens'
Association; Fred Starkey the Commissioner of the Associated Boards of
Trade of Southern B. C.; Mr.
Klngham, president of the Associated
Boards of Trade of British Columbia;
and the presidents and secretaries of
the Boards of Trade °' Calgary and
Vancouver, to be present. All the local members of tlie Provincial and
Federal Houses of Parliament are being Invited and the press of the representative papers. It Is the present intention to have a regular business
meeting In the early part of the session

to the various natural hot springs, the
playing of golf and such enjoyments
as t'*» warm wet^a of Lake Windermere afford.
Piano Recital
Friday Evening
Performance by Hr. Harold An-
(leson at Recreation Clnb
Should Draw flood Crowd

Last Friday
Athletic Events for the School
Pupils at Central School
A piano recital will be given under
the auspices of the Cranbrook Recret-
tlon Club by Mr. Harold Anderson
(L.Mus.) tomorrow evening, Friday,
May 27th, at 8.45 p.m. sharp.
In presenting Mr Anderson, the en-
tertalnment committee of the Cranbrook Recreation Club believe they
are offering the public not only an artistic event, but also an educational
treat. It Is Mr. Anderson's express
wish that all piano students who are
studying in Cranbrook be admitted at
halt price, or 50 cents. Tickets may
be purchased from members of the
committee, music teachers ln the city,
or at thc doors. The concert Is open
to the general public, non-members $1,
members 76 cents. All students of the
piano in Cranbrook, 60 cents.
Quite a few people of Cranbrook
have heard Mr. Anderson play, and so
he conies here not a total stranger.
At a recent recital in Waldo his program war. replete wltb good things—
among them some of his own compositions. His well selected program Included compositions of widely varying
type, which gave ample scope for his
great versatility. He appeared equally at ease In -the sonorous harmonies of Beethoven's Largo from the Second Sonata, In MacDo well's fantastic
Witches' Dream, ln the vibrating Intensity of Chopin's Storm Prelude, or
the amazing vivacity ot Lists* Hungarian Rhapsody. Perhaps his delicacy
of touch was best heard In Chopin's
"black note" etude, which was rendered splendidly. Chopin's Valse ln
A Flat, Op. 34, No. 1, was repeated by
special request at the end of his program, so thoroughly was it appreciated.
Mr. Anderson studied at Montreal
under Mr. Walter H. Hungerford, head
professor of the piano at the McGill
Conservatory of Music, where he took
hlB degree ot Licentiate of Music. The
future of this young pianist, is, it Is
recognised, full of promise. All too
seldom does this city have the opportunity of hearing the works of the
world's best In music, and Cranbrook
should avail Itself of this opportunity
to hear them rendered ln such masterly fashion by so promising a mus-
. Ichin as Harold Anderson,

at tlie Central School grounds. There
was a good crowd of Interested spectators, and some good raclug resulted.

Tiio prizes wero distributed this
afternoon, Thursday,'by Major H. B
Hicks and Mr. J. M. Clark, at the
Board of Trade who desire to make
the trip are asked to give their names as soon as possible to thc secretary.
Mr. Harris, or to Mr. W. D. Gilroy. It
Is urged that as many as possible
make the trip. A good time was
spent last year at Invermere, at the
time of the Inauguration of the Associated Boards of Trade, the people of
Invermere and district, and the members of tlie Windermere District
Board of Trade leaving nothing undone ttint could add to the comfort and
njoyment uf the visitors.
Mr. W. M. Hurris, secretary of the
local Board of Trade, has received a
letter from Mr. B. (j. Hamilton, of Invermere, und secretary of the Associated Boards of Trade of South-Eastern British Columbia, In regard to the
"get-together" gathering, which Is to
be held at Invermere next week-end.
At this gathering tlie members of the
different local boards of trade are to

Mr. Hamilton says:
"Over twenty invitations have been
lent out to prominent people to come
aud join us. We hope to have a
really good time. The present program Is to have a dinner party on the
arrival of alt. This is to be at the
headquarters, which will be the Community House of tlie Lake Windermere Camp. On Saturday a business
session will be held in the morning,

The impression Is quite general
that the Empire Day celebration, the
third annual event of Its kind put on
by the G. W. V. A. passed off very suc-
e..sfully Indeed, and It is gratifying
to know that the financial proceeds
are expected to be fairly substantial.
The day was fine, an ideal celebration
day, in fact, quite a decided improvi
ment over the dust and cold endured
last year.- toeplte of cocnter e'trac-
tlons the crowd was here from all
portions of the district, only the usual
delegation from Fernle and * other
points east being lacking, and even
they were not missed In point of
Some were heard to ask where the
band was. It was in Fernie, and it remained there. It had previously been
the plan of the celebration committee
to run a special train as hi former
yearB from Fernie, and to have the
Fernie band of twenty pieces come up
on that train, bringing with it the usual crowd of celebration enthusiasts
from the coal town and Intermediate
points. Then the Howe circus happened along, stopping here on the
23rd, and being dated for Fernle on
the 24th. A circus of course fs
big attraction, and the Fernie people
felt so, and had It been left to the
choice between taking in the circus
at Fernie or coming to Cranbrook for
the 24th, there Is little doubt that most
people there would have had to choose
the former instead of the latter. The
circus Is also understood to have had
a special train put on to bring the
people in from Blalrmore, Coleman,
Hillcrest and other points further
and against this combination
the celebration committee felt It was
better play safe, and so the arrangements for its special train from Fernle were cancelled, rather than run
the risk of a heavy loss, such as was
Incurred last year on a special train
from the west.
Another eleventh hour disappointment encountered was the unexpected attitude of a horseman from the
south, who had previously agreed to
let his horses off here for the races.
On arrival here, however, he attempt- <
ed to drive a different bargain with
the committee, which practically
meant he was to be guaranteed a good
sum whether he broke Into the prize
money or not. There was a disposition on the part ot the committee to
meet him ln some respects by way of
a compromise, but nothing definite in
the shape of an arrangement could be
reached, and so the promised horses
from TIa Juana did not materialize
on the track. Others promised from
Spokane were also conspicuous by
their absence, but through no fault of
racing was watched with keen interfile committee. Tliere were some good
horses from Calgary, hoyever, and the
The 24th of May has come to belong to the G.W.V.A. from the fact
tbat they have now put on three celebrations of this kind, and tho day cannot be put in any better hands, all
things considered. But what Is needed ls an even greater measure of cooperation  on  the  part of    everyone

Delay Ensues In Getting Machinery of Liquor Control Act
in Proper Working Order
The thirsty of B.C., and thoso
beyond her confines who are anxiously
awaiting the Inauguration of the go-
ernment liquor stores in this province
vlll be called upon to exercise their
alienee for a matter of three weeks
or so longer. The fiat has gone forth
from the offlce of the attorney-general
that the measure must be in operation
by July 1, and the liquor board are
putting forth every effort so that lt
..all be so.
The iucrease in federal tariff duties
upon Imported liquors has raised some
knotty problems, chiefly as tn the selling price of the liquor. If tho board
decides to absorb a big portion of the
ew duties lt means the profits will
be lessened—which will scarcely do
when it ls remembered how many projects are ear-marked to receive aid ac-
ruing from the sale of liquor through
the government stores. If on tho oth-
hand, the board takes tho other
tcurse and charges it up to the cost of
the liquor, there ts not likely to be
much cheap liquor in B.C, unless lt
s the bootlegger's.
It fs probable that some middle
ourse will be adopted, and some part

there will be the freight—mostly by

tilated on the normal value of the En-
gltah pound and not its present depreciated value, the handling and distribution throughout the province, selling expenses, insurance and protection against pilfering and losses in

ihat there is little chance of cheap liquor.
As time goes on. details or the selling plans of the Uquor board become

tiiat the issuing of permits will be placed with government agents throughout the province, and instructions to
this effect have been Issued by Hon.
John Hart, minister of finance. The
announcement made by Mr. Falconer
himself while in the East Kootenay to
a Herald representative that government employment bureaux and the provincial police would also be utilized
for the issuance of permits is now modified to the extent that only the government agents, outside the regular
offices wiU be authorized to handle the
permits, except perhaps in special
cases. Mr. Falconer also gai£ out
on his return to Victoria, that a warehouse had been established in Fernie,

Employees in the government printing bureau at Victoria are working overtime to get the permits printed, and

In reference to the Attorney-General's contention that the government liquor Bhould not be liable for taxation
by the Dominion, Sir Henry Drayton,
minister of finance at Ottawa, has stated in the house in reply to questions
that he is advised that the position of

Is quite Bound. It was argued that
B.C., along with Quebec, was in the
liquor business ostensibly to promote
temperance, and not to make money,
and hence was not ln a business undertaking In the usual trade sense. To
this Sir Henry replied that if the provinces were not in the biiRiness to
make money, then any additional tax-
tion would not interfere. Incidentally
It was pointed out that the tax in England was nearly double what iu now
going to be charged in Canada as Import duties.

•The simple ceremony whicli
took place at the house of commons, Ottawa, this week, in the
formal presentation of the new
Speaker's Chair to the Canadian people, involved a wonderful background of British history and constitutional traditions. The presentation was
very fittingly made by the Rt.
Hon. \V. J. Lowther, who was
until recently the Speaker in
tlie British house of commons.
Some points in the short address he made are worth dwelling upon, and Ihe reflection
conies that the British form of
government, though seemingly
befrllled with a certain amount
of ceremony and formalism, is
still the most democratic extant. It has stood the test of
centuries, and still remains in
the essence unchanged from

"Tho Speaker's chair Is the symbol
not only of parliamentary government

for the benefit of subsequent
occasions. Examining in this
spirit the arrangements of the
Empire Day Celebration, one
comes to the conclusion that
the opening of the day was
greatly strengthened by the decision to hold a street parade.
Anything in this line will attract a crowd, and that is what
counts in this case. There must
have been some regrets, however, that the response to the
work of the committee in
charge was not larger. There
should have been more floats
and decorated cars in the parade. Any small town in the
^States on the 4th of July seems
to know how to raise a parade
with a couple of dozen floats
and seventy-live or a hundred
decorated cars besides. Fraternal societies, individual business linns and even professional
institutions do not hesitate to
get into it, and the result is well
worth the effort. Perhaps the
fact that the States have been
celebrating Independence Day
longer than Canada has Empire
Day may have something to do
with it, but next year this feature ought to be taken hold of by
the business men and city organizations with much more
And it seemed—so a visitor

and Cranbrook could certainly
afford to put on a real gala ap

was a pity there wasn't a little
more light to spare for an occasion of this kind. Cranbrook's

would certainly have shown up
to good advantage, and perhaps

three things which can easily be

A Dangerous Practice
A matter of vital concern tu all
railway travellers was suggested in
a letter that appeared in a recent
issue of the "Montreal Star" undor
the heading of "The Editor's Mail."
This letter was as follows:
The Editor:—
Sir,—There is one thing which I
think should be brought to the attention of the big officials of our railway companies. That is the highly
dangerous practice of smoking in
sleeping cars, -
In a train in which I -was travelling the otlier night from Toronto
to Montreal, I heard a porter go up
to a berth and ask the occupant if
he were smoking. There was a very
sheepish denial, but as a matter of
fact the man was smoking a cigarette—not in the smoking room, remember, but in his berth. Quite
apart from the lack of consideration
which this showed' for the other pas-
aengers—amongst whom were several ladies—think of the danger of
it, where an accidental little fire
might have endangered the lives of
some score more. There are surely
enough instances on record whera
men smoking in bed in thr-ir own
houses have fallen asleep and been
burned to death, without having to
emphasise the much bi^er danger
in a bed on a train.
I spoke about this case to tha
porter in the morning, and he told
me that one dny there would be a
big fire, and then people would perhaps sit up and take notice. Tho
worst offenders, he said, are not tho
people ln the ordinary berths, who
can be asked to stop, so much as
those who occupy compartments, nnd
who can lock their doors and tell tho
porter who remonstrates to go to
the devil.
I am not an anti-smoking crank,
but I am a very frequent traveller,
and I once had the misfortune to
lose a relative in a railway fire,
which started in a way something
like this, and I am sure that if tho
hig railway officials realized the
seriousness of this they would, in
Justice to the travelling public, Issue
strict orders abput it.      B. L. T.
Interviewed on this matter, a
prominent railway official said that
the writer of this letter had been
misinformed in thinking that the
matter had not been drawn to lhe
attention of the railway companies,
for it wa3 one that had been engaging their attention for some
time. They are taking every precaution possible to prevent fire* but
they were hampered to a very great
extent by the indifference of many
members of the travelling public.
He quoted one ease that occurred recently in which tho occupant of a
compartment had set his redding on
fire through smoking in bed, n bal
fire having been prevented on'v by
the vigilance of the porter.* Consideration for the safetv and <"■:.•

The Presbyterian Synod of British
Columbia in session at Vancouver last
week discussed very fully a resolution
on the receut liquor act passed by the
B.C. government. The opinion was
stated by some that the synod should
express even more emphatically their
belief that the measure was not what
the electors voted for. The resolution
Is as follows:
"That the synod, believing that the
recent vote of the people in favor of
government control and sale of liquors ln the terms ot the referendum
ballot was due in a large degree to
Lhe failure to enforce the Prohibition
Act, and was really a popular demand for a curb to be put upon the
scandalous prevalence of lawless liquor soiling, calls upon the government
will ho held res| ion si hi 6 for the enactment and en fore citn ent of a law In tu.-
oordanog with the wishes of the people

"The synod emphusizes this because
it appears evident thut the sale of
liquor, in practically unlimited quantities, is being contemplated by tbe
appointees of tlie government as
lucrative business, u policy wnich, if
carried out, will Inevitably result in a
widespread injury to the homes and

lioints and some weak ones. It provides for an expenditure of about
$000,000,000, and for the raising of
nearly $70,000,000 In new taxes. Judging by tlie way revenue has fallen off
during the last two months, It looks
very much us though $100,000,000 will
have to be raised through taxes, or we
will run behind. Even the government
admits tbat estimating new taxes this
year Is pretty much guess work. As
an indication of how revenue Is declining lt may be pointed out that a
little over a year ago customs was
bringing ln over $200,000,000 within
twelve months; for this year the official estimate is $135,000,000.
Mystified by the figures, some people
are asking bow we really did last year.
Tliere waB nominally a surplus of a
little over $12,000,000. In another way
there wasn't. The government began
the year with a windfall in the form
of $101,000,000 of unexpended moneys
from the last Viotory Loan, aud out of
this bought ln $89,000,000 worth of
tax-free' Victory Bonds. If it hadn't
boen for the $101,000,000 there would
have been quite a deficit. Sir Henry
Drayton sayB that there were no fresh
borrowings during tbe year, and in a
sense ho is correct. The government
borrowed over $70,000,000 for its railways, but lt did so Indirectly. These
roads could hardly have raised any
money on their own credit, but the
government bucked their notes and
bonds and with these they raised the
over $70,000,000 required. If under tbe
system that prevailed In the old days,
this money bad been borrowed for the
Intercolonial it would have appeared
in the public debt. But in turning
corners, we have become wiser than
our fathers. Still, high finance having grown so much in favor it was to
be expected that even our government
would adopt some of the new wrinkles
for turning a corner. Everybody's doing It.
Turning to the current year, nearly
$60,000,000 has to be provided for. It

Will be heavier or lighter as ejehange
goes up or down.
Take also the case of Importing
goods from Prance, Italy or any other
European country, whose currency Is
depreciated as compared with our own.
At present duty Is paid only on the
value of these goods, as expressed in
the actual value of the franc, or lire,
etc., but under the new law, the value
for duty purposes can never be leas
than 50 per cent. That Is to say, the
franc may not really be wortii more
than 8 cents, but If goods are Imported from Prance the franc will always
be considered as worth not less than
10 cents.
Naturally most people aro Interested
in the HiiIoh Tax. Of all the taxes in -
i reduced Into Canada during rocent
years this lis possibly tho least understood. During tho ten and a half
months, up to March 31 last, it brought
In t3S.02D.000, or at tlle rate of (42,-
000,000 a year. One would naturally
think that the more the collecting machinery was perfected tho greater
would be the collections. But tho reverse is tho case. During the summer
months and tho early fall, when business was good, the collections were
high. In October $5,020,000 was taken
In, or at the rate of (120,000 a dny; In
March there was a drop of one-third,
Ilie collections being only (3,404,000 or
about (82,000 a day. So it worked out
that tho poorer business gets tho less
money the Sales tax brings In.
Such being the situation, It Is not
surprising that the Sales tax has been
so Increased. The government needs
the money, and since It has abolished
the Buslnoss Profits tax some other
means had to be adopted. But the
estimates of what tills tax will bring
In are based on business getting better
or at least getting no worse.
The much abused luxury taxes were
a better revenue producer than the
Sales tax. During the six months
they were In operation they brought in
(42,000,000, or (4,000,000 more than
the Sales tax did ln the ten and a half
months. One of the reasons why the
Sales tax Is so praised and the Luxury
tax so denounced ls because the retailers don't have to collect the former
while they had to collect the latter.
Naturally they object to an objectionable job, especially when there is no
money in it for them.
During the first days of the Budget
debate the speeches were below the
mark. Some of the speakers would
Insist on again telling the House how
they lost the elections in 1911. while
others were Just as eager to tell how
they won In that year of grace. History Is all right In its place, but It
doesn't help solve the taxation problems of the day. What the people
want is exact information as to the
taxes they are paying, why they are
being asked to do so, and whether the
taxes are levied ln proportion to one's
ability to pay.
Dr. Clark, of Red Deer, was the first
man to get down to brass tacks on
this phase ot the subject, It being
doubtful whether a finer speech on
taxation, Its principles and the application of them, has ever been heard in
parliament. It was especially valuable
In that It presented the case for the
great body of consumers. And when
on* learns that returned men who, because they have not money to pay
railway fare, are walking from Toronto and Montreal to Ottawa to state
their case, one quite realises why this
class should be heard.

Both by the enactment of regulations

made this year." said Mr. Moore, "to
reduce the annual loss through forest
fires caused through careless burning
of campers fires, and offenders may
look for the fullest penalty Imposed by
the Forest Act."
For the year 1920 Forester Moore
stated that the total loss of timber
due to fires was almost $78,000 in the

main line. In connection with handling these fires and maintaining the
forestry service In Kast Kootenay the
cost had been $42,000.
To keep these losses down to the
minimum the maximum of efficiency
in the men employed was absolutely
essential. This is at once apparent
when it was stated that 80 per cent,
of the 1920 forest conflagrations was
due to lightning. The department's
idea was to prevent fires, as well as
excel at extinguishing such outbreaks.

Moore stated, wero at least 40 per

"The Ottawa Citizen has made an
interesting analysis of the recent provincial elections In the cities of Vancouver and Victoria.
"Vancouver elected six representatives from the city at largo by tho
"block" vole. Twenty-eight candidates were in tho field. The Liberal
party, with about 13.S40 voters, elected five representatives, while the 11,-
(il7 Conservative voters elected only j
ono. In Victoria li) candidates ran j
for four scats under the .num. system,
aud about 6,498 Liberal voters secured
three seats, while about 4,170 Conservatives and nearly tho sumo number
of Independent votes secured only ono.
"Outside of the cities of Vancouver
and Victoria thero were I!S single-
member constituencies, in .17 of which
contests were held. In 24 of these
constituencies three, four and even
five candidates competed for a single
scat; and as a result, in 21 cases tho
successful candidate secured election
by a MINORITY of the votes polled,
which amounted in most of the cases
to very little more than one-third of
the total vote polled.
"The Ottawa Citizen contends with
considerable strength that these figures provide food for reflection   for
those who are at present opposed to
any changes being made in the existing "British"    method    of    election.
"Whatever may be said   o£   the origin of tho existing electoral machinery," says the Citizen, "tho results obtained under it are often directly opposed to tho principles of British de
mocracy.   'In a really equal democ-1
racy,' whoto John Stuart Mill in hia
Representative Government, 'any and i
every section would   be   represented,
not disproportionately hut proportionately. A majority of the electors would
always havo a majority of representatives; but a minority of electors would
always have a minority of representatives.   Man for man they would be aB
fully represented as the majority.' Not
only ls this good ethics, it would also
appear to be good politics.   Edmund
Burke said in 1780 that 'tho virtue,
ihe spirit, the essence of tlie House
nf Commons consists in its being tlie
express image    of the nation.'   Th
Right Honorable H. H. Asqultli   ex
pressed thc same Idea in 190D when he
said. 'It Is infinitely to the advantage
of the House at Commons that there
■.hould bo no strain of opinion honestly entertained by any substantial body
of the King's subjects whicli should
not find   there    representation    and
speech. .    .    Let them have a House
if Commons whicli fully reflected ev-
ary strain of opinion; that was what
mado democratic government In   tho
long run not only safer and more free,
but moro stable.'"
"In conclusion, Tho Citizen remarks: 'The three great reform bills
approved by British statesmen In the
last century, to say nothing of the recent enfranchisement of women, were
never intended to produce such results
as obtained in the recent provincial
election in British Columbia.'"

Modern business men. recalling personal experiences, may be inclined to
scout this statement, but it is none the
less0true. A business aggregating
many millions of dollars annually is
transacted by ftvjj office employees.
This condition, presumably, is a survival of the form of efficiency for
which thnt enigmafcrc, taciturn business genius, the lato Sir William Macdonald, was distinguished.  In tact the
was not a progressive individual; butj
his success affords ample disproof of
such a contention—a success iinpurul-
lelled, perhaps, in tae h'story of Canadian business, a success such as enabled him to be, next to the late Lord
Stratheonu, Canada's greatest philan-
tropjjlst; he gave more than fifteen
millions of dollars to the cause of
education, and which placed him
among the world's wealthiest men.
Further, tho fact that in 1870, twelve
years after his business was established, he employed 1100 men in his factory {a- phenomenal figure for those
days,) does not entitle him to be regarded as unprogressive. Possibly the
most progressive business man of his
duy, he was also the shrewdest and
mast thorough, He had the business
genius. While other companies, expanding their organizations, inclined
to dcpnrtinentization of their businesses, Sir William, with that breadth of
vision of his, still could give all th,
necessary attention to all/he departments of his business, distribution,

. Although only a short time in
existence, the Canadian Authors'
Association has already proved itself
a very active organization, and has
done substantial work for the bene
fit of the Canadian Author and Canadian literature. The Association
grew out of a recent Convention held
in Montreal, which was attended by
over one hundred Canadian writers,
many of whom have attained international fame—such as Basil Kin*,
Stephen Leacock, Arthur Stringer, Frank L. Packard, Bliss Carman,
Archibald MacMechan, Robert Stead,
Madge Macbeth, etc. It has received
the cordial support of many- who
could not personally be present,

there, such as Dr. George H. Locke,

—also many of the Toronto publishers. A considerable number of
French-Canadian Authors were present, including M. Louvigny de Mon-
tigny, and Madame Huguenin, whose
writings published under the pen-
name of Madeleine are exceedingly
popular with the French-Canadian
The remarkable interest taken in
this Association is no doubt due to
the growing spirit of national pride,
which has evidenced Itself so strongly in Canadian life, while a special
reason for the Association could be
found in the Copyright Bill before
the Canadian Parliament, which appeared to endanger tht rights of
Authors as they had never boan en-
A Committee was appointed to
study and take action on this Bill,
and within a fortnight a report wai
issued which undoubtedly has carried considerable weight with the
Government. Other Committees have
since been appointed to promote a
number of practical schemes, with
the object oi increasing the percentage of book-renders in Canada and
of enlarging the interest in Canadian literature, Thus, for instance,
tho publishers have agreed to cooperate with the authors in nrcani?
ing a Canadian Book Week for next
November when the attention of the
bookloving public will hn concentrated on works by Canadian Anthr.ro.
This is a month in which n gren*
many people get books lo .tend
overseas as Christmas presents, anu
it is planned also to encourage people In tht West to send book* hy
Western Authors to friends in tht
East, and people in the East to send
books by Eastern Authors to friends
in the West.
The Association anticipates that
if the book-reading and book-buying-
public is increased in this country,
the Canadian author will no longer
be tempted to desert his native country for the more populous centers of
New York or London, but will find
a sufficiently appreciative public at
home. Already conditions in this
respect nre improving, and several

damage occurred In standing timber,
His Worship was disposed to administer the minimum fine.
The offense Is a serious one. The
forest offlciuls are entrusted with the
protection not only of our forests but
ot the lives and prosperity of the citizens which can be endangered by indiscriminate burning. Action will bo
taken by the provincial police and forest officers in every instance where
it can be shown that the provisions
of the act In respect to the prevention
of forest fires have been violated. A
determined effort will be made during
this year to reduce tlie annual loss

the sole director—a "one-man" concern if ever there was one. Sir William foresaw that the profitable continuance of his work must be carried
on under the same scheme. In the
person of his secretary he found a
talent like to his, and 'that talent,

While tiie Stewart brothers have recognized the merits of advertising
with the result that their company Is
today one of the biggest advertisers in
the Dominion, while they have taken
cognizance of the automobile and of
modern equipment, It Is none the less
true* that the industry they control is
still guided, and will be during their
lifetimes ut least, solely by the spirit
and unrivalled commercial wisdom of
the late Sir William Christopher Macdonald. Hence, any rumors of the
purchase of this business by other interests are at once untrue and Illogical.

being taken this year by the Domlnllon

of Western Canada. Six aeroplanes
will be used in Southern Alberta, two
main flights being made dally In ordinary weather, one north, the other south. Extra stuff and equipment
will bo in readiness for more frequent flights when there Is firo danger. It is though by this system to

dress the crowd of visitors and citizens. He thought this was the largest
celebration tiiat Cranbrook had ever
lmd, and lt was certain that Cranbrook hnd made progress, "It may be
true," he said In part," that there are
houses which are not occupied
as in other days of Cranbrook's history, but in point of population there
are-more here today than there were
three or four years ago. There has
been progress as instanced by the fact
that tlie school accommodation is insufficient, and more room is urgently
needed o take care of tiie children
seeking school training. One wonders
at the progress being mnde after the
years of depression both ln tho Kast
and tlie West. Since tiie war, tlie East
has commenced construction of a great
International highway, a macadam and
asphalt highway thirty feet wide between Montreal, Detroit and Chicago,
making It possible fb transport merchandise by motor truck. This is only
one instance of the commencement of
progress In the East. Likewise in tbe
West progress is observed, On the
prairies tiie farmers' progress this
,lust season was a record. Then the
oil boom In the McKenzie district
which has tho indications of big possibilities until now undeveloped; the
Alberta coal resources, the coal mines
at Fernle. Iron deposits; and at Kimberley the Sullivan mines ship out
1000 tons or ore daily to the smelter
ot Trail. It Is thought that In a very
short time Kimberley will have a concentrator and smelter of Its own nnd
a dam to ho built at Elko 700 feet high
will furnish the electrical power. Jn
a very few years no less than 10,000
to 15.000 people will be engaged at
Kimberley. Then the program for de-
■eloplng the iron deposits locally
will he an added Inducement for Cranbrook In preparing for the Industry
which will follow the growth of those
mining towns. The good roads around Cranbrook make it a good centre and with the possibilities surrounding, It is bound to progress. Depression In a nation is not an otII
thlnp .as the period following the depression brings out the character and
ability of Its subjects, and I am sure
that the residents and citizens of
Crnnbrook and district are ready to
aid to bring to fruition the prospects
nnd big opportunities of their country."
Rev. W. T. Tapscott of the Cranbrook Baptist Church also addressed
thc gathering, saying that Victoria
Pay had always been a great day in
Cranbrook. "It was a splendid Idea
to commemorate, tho 84th May as Victoria Day throughout the Empire,"
Mr. Tapscott said. "It developed the
national spirit. The day before
we had a lot of Americans ln town,
Some of them were enquiring what
Victoria Day stood for and one of
than replied that Victoria was tlie
queen yours ago and a good woman
Hilt wus, too." The speaker said he

of the deep with Its lurking, death-
dealing devices of the enemy, the abominable submarines, yet its transports piled ceaselessly, carrying
succor and supplies to liie men at the
front without stint or thought of tlie
danger. Then think of tho women
with only a thought ofthose at the
front, carrying on, heroes all, yet

d hut working and performing tasks,
unknown before the war, that tiie Empire might survive. That's what England did. We acknowledge to Qod that
it was tlie spirit of righteousness
Which in a large measure resulted In
our being victorious. It wus General
Joffre who said "ll was Cod wlio proved himself victorious at the Marne," in
tlie first year of tlie war."
Hev. E. W. MacKay of the Presbyterian church was the lust speaker.
He said in part: "It is a great Idea
and u great honor to Cranhrook that
the Great War Veterans Association
liavo taken it upon themselves to prepare tlie Victoria Day celebration, it
was like the spirit that prevailed un
the fighting lines to see tlie representatives of the different churches and
organisations participating shoulder
to shoulder, us It were, in making tills
occasion a great success for the Empire cause.   One of the greatest   tn-
Idents in the history of the British
Empire was when Sir Edward Grey announced to the united houses, the
Lords and Commons, thut there wus
nothing left to do but to tuke up the
gage thrown down and declare war,
and tiie news was telegraphed to every
orner of the Empire. The Immediate reply came back 'We are in tills
struggle with you.' It was one or
tin. great moments of the British Empire. Then of those who went to the
front, some came back and some laid
down their lives. Victoria Day commemorates to these men what the race
of their day did for us. Christians
have shown to the world that they can
flgiit. Tills signifies of the man who
went over tliere, us well as of the
people who remained behind who
were better able to provide for those
who were doing the fighting. I am
very glad to see tiiut us far as this
commemoration Is concerned that the
different faiths ore working shoulder
to shoulder here. It Is so like what
happened at the Front. In rest billets the distinction was some times
observed, but on the front lines everyone wus equal, and If we have commenced to do here what those men did
over there, the spirit of Christianity
has advanced more in the Empire's
cause than Home of us believed. Now
those men have every right to expect
big things of us. I am glad to thank
the war veterans and hope they will
continue to keep in their hands this
day's celebrations so that it may be a
success each year. And I trust the
liberty that they won for us will make
life in Canada even better than it has
been in the years before the war."

that business had declined so rapidly
ln the last few months tiiat unless a

Connection with Kit: Celebration in That tit)
Nelson G.W.V.A. Is planning u big
Dominion Day celebration, and on«
unique feature of it, according to the
Nelson News, will be a gathering of
Kootenay pioneers from all sections of
the district.
Expressing the conviction that the
finest fellows on earth, the Kootenay
Oidtlmers, will just naturally have to
foregather at Nelson on the First of
July, when they hear of what is being
planned, Cuptaln F. p. Armstrong,
secretary of tlie association, lias stated
thut effective work was going ou in
reparation for tho /iiu re-union of
"tlie men who made tlie Kootenay,"
thai will be associated with tlie geiier-
.il Dominion day celebration ihat tiie
Nelson G.W.V.A. has In hand.
Tho Oidtlmers will, In all probubil-
ty, be guests both of tlie Veterans and I
of tlie Nelson branch of the Kootenay
Oidtlmers. That is to say, they will
bo shown special honor hy tlie Veterans, while the local Oidtlmers will
arrange some form of special entertainment.
The building of tiio Crow was a
recent event to those men," declared
Captain Armstrong. "Some were here
before the Canadian Pacific Railway
was here at all. Old Bill Fernle. the
man who founded tlie Kootenay mining, hus passed out, and his treasury
of personal lore of historic Interest is
lost to tlie country. Ho was the oldest
timer by years. Bob Galbraith of Fort
Steele is now the dean. He has u hlg
margin over anybody else. Tliere is
the flight of '82, Jim Gllker, Bob
Green and others. Scattered over tho
country are GO or more of these early
day adventurers, who started this
country into being.
'To gel. together and talk over those
early duys, of Silver City and Golden

slcnmbotiL days, of hunting and of
trail biasing—all Mils beforo Nelson
was thought of—to call old times to
mind, will he the object of tlie reunion.
"As time progresses moro are eligible to join tho ranks of the Oidtlmers.

years, and on earth 51, roughly speaking, to be eligible. •*

"Circle Kootenay" is tho slogan
Qaptain Armstrong has evolved for the
reunion. The Kevelfitofce contingent
will hi supposed to return home by
way of the East Kootenay. and the
Fort Steele denizens will be expected
to make the circuit of tiie main line
io get back io "Steele." Every group
will be expected to make a circuit.
Baseball fans witnessed a clean,
fast game at the Fair grounds ou
Tuesday afternoon when the "V" hoys
played the Boy Scouts of Fernle. There
was plenty of action and some really
fine plays were made by both teams.
Tiio "V" however came through with
tlie big count of i) to 6. when tiie game
concluded. A noticeable feature of
tiie game wus tho fielding of tlie Fernie hoys. They never missed a Hy and
seemed to he in tlie right place at all
times. The "Y" hoys at first seemed
to muff a few. but rallied toward tlie
end and more than made up for tlie
mistakes of the first two or three Innings. Too much credit cannot be
given the Fernie pitcher for the control he had of the ball; he certainly is a "comer" and the first baseman
Is a regular sticker, for no matter
how tlie halls came to him—high, low.
wide or any old way—he got them and
never missed one. For tiie "V"
team Spence, McNeil. Kennedy and
BriggS deserve special mention. All
that Is needed to make the boys'
team oue mighty hard to beat is a
llttlo more experience and practice.
Many said that tho game played by
tho boys was the besl game of the
day. The line-up for the teams was

largo on the range contrary to the regulations was taken up. Magistrate
Leask imposed a fine of $1, und also
assessed the costs against defendant,
amounting to about $14. Tlie defence
was thut the bull was under observation, but this was not considered a
strong enough argument. While a
nominal fine was imposed in this case,
further infractions of the law which
come to light will probably be dealt
with more severely, It being the determination of the forestry officials and
the provincial pollco to protect the interests of tho stockman with cattle on
the range.

Col. Dan Howe, son of Lord Howe,
the famed British circus proprietor,
was here in person on Monday, with
tiio Howe-Amburg circus. Col. Howe
seems to have Inherited his father's
love for animals, and his aptitude In
handling and training them, and a
good deal of the success whicli has attended the amalgamation is due to the
Colonel's personal talent and oversight. The circus here on Monday
represented an outlay of capital amounting to something over $600,000, ln
addition to the railway equipment,
consisting of twenty-three modern cars
seventy and eighty feet In length. A
total personnel was here with the
circus numbering 643, and how complete it is may be judged from tbe fact
that there are employees to handle every conceivable department, including harness makers, painters, wheelwrights, and even a lawyer and detectives. A surprisingly large number
of tlie staff proved to be Canadian or
British, a contrast to the usual run of
shows of this nature.

Considerable 'interest is being manifested by members of the provincial
cabinet at Victoria with regard to the
construction of the new University of
British Columbia buildings at Point
Following the proposals   made   to
Hon. John Hart, Minister of Finance,
by Capt. Ian Mackenzie, second Liberal
member for Vancouver, namely, that
a domestic loan for $1,000,000 be floated In order that construction might
be commenced without delay, Hon. J.
D. MacLean, Minister of Education,
has Inferred that he thought the public of British Columbia would gladly
absorb sueh a loan.
The Minister of Education has referred to the fact that lt would require
several months to revise the plans
und specifications for the new Institution. He has said he did not feet
Inclined to make any announcement
In this regard until bucIi time us thu
necessary finances were in sight. The
minister was of the opinion, though,
that there would be llttlo difficulty in
proceeding along this line.
Capt. Mackenzie's proposal wus to
tho effect that tbe students of the
University should act as salesmen or
the bonds during th0 summer holidays, receiving a small commission
for their services. It would bo ncres-
sary, be said, to have an efriclcnl
sales organization, composed of re
liable brokers, In order that thoru
would bo no question oa to tho iiltlm
ate success of the venture.
Hon. Dr. MacLean referred to the
three million loan provided for In tho
bill passed at the session of 1920 Tor
University building purposes. The
work had not been proceeded with
owing to the financial stringency.
However, ln view of the urgency of
the situation, a condition which was
appreciated by the government, It was
realized that something concrete must
be done ln the very near future.
Attorney-General Farris has stated
that public opinion is very pronounced
upon this issue. No one knew better
than he that higher education ln British Columbia waB of paramount importance, but again, as was the case
ln dealing with ah general development, the financial question came
first. As acting Premier, Hon. Mr.
Farris stated lt was his Intention to
have the matter discussed fully in
executive council session at the earliest possible opportunity.
