A special general meeting of the
Cranbrook Retail Merchants Association was held in tlie Council Chambers of the City Hall on Friday last at
8.H p.m.
There was a large attendance, a
majority of the merchants of the city
heing present.
After the reading and adoption of
the minutes or the previous mooting
Mr. J. P. Fink, president, gave a
brier but very intorostlng lull; on the
good and wolfare or tho Association

wus purely ami simply on account or
a lack of funds at tbe disposal of the
Association, but that plans wore now
being formulated which would undoubtedly result In his visiting this
clly some time this spring.
The Secretary presented a Financial Statement of Mie affairs of the
Association to January 31st, 1019,
which was accepted and passed, after
which ho tendered his resignation in
tho following letter:
"To the President and Members of
The Cranbrook Retail Merchants
Association:
Gentlemen—
lt is Indeed with very mucli regret
that 1 have to tender my resignation
as Secretary of this Organization,
which position I have held since October 1917 and which 1 endeavored to
fill with credit to the Association as
well as to myself. It was not with-1
out due consideration that I decided
to cast in my lot wtth the City of
Vancouver after a residence in this
city of nearly twenty-one years. With
the one object in view of bettering
my own conditions I felt that the
change had to be made, and 1 sincerely trust that, in severing my relationship with the Association at this
particular time, I am not courting the
disfavor of any of its members.
Although there has been an apparent lack of interest manifested in the
affairs of the Association during the
past few months there is no occasion for pessimism and much less
reason why the interest in it cannot
be revived and a good live Association built up again with harmony and
g»od will amongst all its members.

Creston Review: When a special
commission from tho territory affected
by the proposed reclamation scheme
in the Kootenay valley visited Victoria
in connection with this matter a few-
weeks ago, in order to Impress upon
the government the desirability or
action, thc committee was received in
rather a cold-shouldered manner, by
the Hon. T. D. Pattulo, who did not
appear to take kindly to the scheme
at all. In fact It -s stateu that the
reception given by Mr. Pattuio was dis
courteous. Premier Oliver, on the
contrary, appeared to be sympathetically Inclined, and Is reported to have
"called down" bis lieutenant for the
way he acted.
All bottles look alike to British
Columbia's attorney-general. Without
citing any cases nearer homo Charlie
Williams, of Hosmer, was fined for
having liquor in a pluce not authorized by the prohibition act. He pul a
bottle under a sidewalk, lt wus found
by the police and contained a few
drinks of forty rod, but as the cop
could not swear thnt It was the same
bottle that, the accused put there,
although the magistrate was satisfied
thnt the evidence was conclusive
enough to convict, the attorney-general overruled the judgment and declared that the bottle was not sufficiently Identified.
Th regular meeting held on Sunday lusi was fairly well atteuUod, but
il could nnd should have been better.
Como out and show a little moro interest in t!c Branch and its welfare.

The Ion*  looked   ror   budget   wo
brought down in tho local loglslatur
on  Wednesday of lasl  week.     Tlu
cause of tin  delay ***■ Bald to bo th
great  dial  ll fm Hon or tho government members with the expenditure
of such :   tromoi douB   urn ot money
us $13,813,303.00 wltht ul making pro-
vision for more than $1,800,000.00 Cor
public wi rks.   n Is the Intention of
tlie government  to spend sonic $4,-
OOO.Otiu.tm in addition, hut Hii-1 expenditure is nol  to I ntruated to the
mlniBter ol publh works. $1,500,000
is to be expt nded on productive pub-
Mo works. Is the expenditure of tho
public works department uol lo be
productive'; mnj wo HBk. The paltry
sum of only half a million dollars is
to he Bpenl on Boldlor settlement, Tlie
mlnlater of lands le lo be given $600,-
000 for Irrigation works. He will make
good use of thai money all right, nnd
don't you forge. It, with on eye single
to building u|i his fallen reputation.
The other million and it half It; to be
lent tho province by tho Dominion
for housing purposes.
Tlie estimated revenue is pul at
$10,200,060.00. Tl «• province will
therefore have to borrow over $7,000,-
000.00 to balance Its financial sheet
for the current year.
We '.ake ll thai the people will not
object to Buch u large expenditure at
tliis critical time In our history, but
there will be stronitoui objection to
the apportionment of thc expenditure.
Too much money is required for
overhead expense and ton little for
productive public works. Half a
million on I of seventeen million is
far too Bmoll a proportion for soldier settlement. It is simply mock-
inn nnd burteBqlng tho situation and
will prove tho undoing of tin* government. The expenditure is apportioned in such s ridiculous way thnt
It will prove lo bo considered us an
outrageous burden upon tho public
that they will surely not stand for il.
Such a tremendous Bum as tho government is asking for should produce
$10,000,000.00 for revonuo producing
public work.:, instead of only halt a
million.
Thc overhead expenses of the province are continually climbing und
climbing ut an alanntng rate, Wo
are beading direct for tho rocks and
an overwhelming disaster is Imminonl
The totnl expenditure for the yenr
ending March 31, LOIS, was ?10,800,-
804.07; for the year ending March 31,
1919, it was $11,621,69-1.00 and for tho
curronl year for ordinary expenditure
$13,813,303.00, without taking into
consideration the special expenditure
of four million not included In the
budget.
Tills is not what wc expected from
tho pro-oloctton pledges of tho Liberal
party and the government should acknowledge Its failure nnd resign.
The government on assuming office
were undoubtedly up against a hard
fina#ial proposition. The reckless
policy of tho McBride administration
in regard lo both the Canadian Northern and Pacific Ureal Eastern railways, a policy thai looked good on
paper and thai the poople endowed
at two succeeding general election:
but a financial crisis struck tho world
and on top of that came the war and
the weaknesses of the policy were
shown up nnd mnde apparent for tin
first time, uud this put the govern
ment in bad. But tie government in
stead of adopting a belter policy soot
made the situation untenable nlioge
ther and the exploiters thai were held
in leash by the late governmeni soon
got tho upper hand and led the government blindfolded wherever they
wished and with tlie rapidity that
made the government's head swim,
the P.G.B. loan or over six millions
was settled at about Hi eenta on ilie
dollar and an expensive white elephant was loaded on to tbe government,
whose prentice hand In legislation
does not seem to Improve with experience.
The government's failure to carry
out its pre-electhm pledge to abolish
patronage has nlso proved a most expensive blunder. To overcome tills
they have appointed royal commissions galore until »t tlte present time
we have government, by commission
Instead ot by tlie people's representatives. Hundreds of pood parly followers have lieen appointed commissioners at good fat salaries as a reward for tlieir faithfulness to tin-
party and tiie end Is not yet, in fact
this expensive inroad upon well established constitutional practice has only
nicely begun. There are thousands
of good Liberals who nre on ttie waiting list.
Hon. John Hart, finance minister,
concluded his speech on the budget
with the following peroration:
"And now lot mo appeal to British
Columbians to have confidence iu
themselves. Let us believe In ourselves and in onr future destiny, with
a steady, sustained and unfaltering
confidence, It was faith in {heir cause
and in the unshakable courage of
their people that won Tor Britain and
her Allies tho victory whicli today
hearteiiK us. There wero moments
of defeat and discouragement which
might have led lo a far different result with a less bravo race, but the
confidence which every citizen of the
Empire felt In the outcome never
wavered.
"Here iu this Province we have
had our setbacks and wc still have
weighty problems to solve. I sincerely believe that our people will
not quail before thc difficulties which
surround the work of reconstruction,
nn tiie industrial, financial and social
sides. These are to be successfully
settled, not alone by governmental
action, but by the co-operation of individuals, employers and workers,
municipalities, this Legislature and
the government of tho day. I can
uestiro you, sir. and the country tlml
tlte members of the Executive Council do not shrink from the responsibilities before them, nor do thoy
weaken in-their confidence In the
people and tho resources of tlte
Province. There is no difficulty in
any nf tho questions calling for solution which cannot be overcome by
courage; courage and confidence. Our
soldiers had the perfect confidence of
all at homo thnt they would win our
battloB for us; and gallantly have
they fulfilled our highest expectations; let us have equal confidence in
them and In ourselves to win the battles of peoce."

Go back lo Agricultural Journal fori
March aud read again Mr. Larson's
letter on prices the seedsmen offered l
him for vegetable seeds and the price
thoy catalogue lhe same at.
Onion seed, offered SI. selling at
*M.r,0 per pound, about $8.00 by ounce.
Spinach sen] offered 10 cents, selling
$1.20 per pound. ?:i.!!0 by ounce, and
others on same par. Thc need growers
are organizing to pul B. C. vegetable
seeds mil co-operatlvoly through the
institutes next year, and expect to establish a seed cleaning elevator and
warehouse in the Okanagan this year.
Ottawa offers $L',r,00 towards the cost
If B. C. puis up a like sum, the seed
growers of tlie province expect to finance tlie remainder or the cost. Lot
us remember these olmps next  full
sarly enough to make our appreciation
if some value to them.
Thc Advisory Hoard contended very
strongly for lhe appointment of Agvl-
cultnral representatives in the outlying districts of the province and especially in stock and mixed farming
districts, us they felt that while great
stress hnd been laid on fruit growing
and fruit districts well supplied with
instructors and advisors, the other districts had been rather overlooked In
the past. Tlie runners in Kast Kootenay will surely agree witli Ibis last
statement in its local application.
MIlMOItlAI. SERVICE AT
TJIUIUI'TIST CHURCH
On Sunday evening last a memorial
service was hold for tlie late Mr. Clins.
Sheppard. Many sympathetic friends
attended tlie service including tbe
deceased's fellow-employees on the
railway.
From the opening hymn "At Even
13re the Sun was Set" until the closing
one 'For all Thy Saints' tlie feelings
of all present were softened and inspired. The pus(or spoke fittingly of
Mr. Slieppard's long term of service
rendered to tlie Church in Crnnbrook.
lie was a member for over fifteen
years, and besides being n deacon lind
served as Sunday School Superintendent for six and a half years.
Mr. Sheppard, tlie paslor said, had
left behind him the truest wealth, being as bo was, a man of unimpeachable character and sterling integrity.
Sympathy and prayers were extended
to Ills bereaved wife and little daughter. The choir fittingly rendered tlie
piece "One Sweetly Solemn Thought."
FORT 8TEEM.
Thc townspeople gave a surprise
party and dance to Mr. and Mrs. J.
R. Blumenauer on Monday last There
was a larger crowd than was expected and everybody reported having a
good time. Mr. Henry Kershaw played tlie piano for the dance and the
music was appreciated hy all present.
Messrs. Harry and Mark Miller of
Wasa, and Mrs. Oretny and Mrs.
Munroe of Sheep frock, were down
fur the dance.
Corp. Mark Miller, U. S, Infantry,
who has been home on fourteen days
leave to pay a visit to his parents at
Wasa. left Fort Steele on Tuesday for
iiis Camp. His brother Harry Miller
who has served witli the Canadian
Artillery in France, and who lias only
returned homo a short while, was In
town to see him off. Another brother, Raymond Miller. Is with thc C.
F. F. in England.
L A. Willlcome received a letter
from Pte. Albert Bell of tlie Mth
Battalion who is now with the Bat-
talion Concert Party. Pte. Bell Is
stationed near Brussels and writes
that, there Is little chanre of getting
home for about three months.
FOIt  YOnt K< ICAl' HOOK
If you want to get n real good
fighting jag ou all you have to do Is
to take a few shois of Florida water
and Jamaica finger. An Indian down
in Calgary tried 11 and it worked like
a charm. It will sure intoxicate you
and fill you with a mad frenzy. This
Indian ran into a store, chased the
proprietor round tlie counters and
then helped himself to a cargo of two
per cent. After a hard struggle he
was finally handcuffed and locked
up. If you want to test the capacity
of our police farce just try It on. Tho
essence of ginger is becoming a very
popular drink at tlie coast Ever
since Noah planted a vineyard and
filled up on the juice of the grape
men have got drunk. Kxperieuee
teaches men nothing when John
Barleycorn   is   under  discussion.
An era of iho greatest expansion in
this old world's history is In the dawn
ing. There is uioio work to do am)
fewer men to do it. Tbe world has
never heen so near rock bottom as tt
is today. .Nearly the whole ol Europe
has to he re-bullt, and all the surplus
stocks of Canada and tho United
States have been depleted. The wear
and tear of the past four years has
to be repaired. Ships must bo built.
Tlie railways of the world have to be
almost rebuilt and their rolling stock
and power replenished. Men, women
and children in Europe liy the hundreds of millions have to be fed. Fifty
million war workers have to he turned again into peace workers. In Cannda harbors have to he enlarged, dry
docks have to he constructed, railways aud terminals have to ho built
and business of ail kinds must be organized on a huge scale to provide
tor our expanding export trade. Cannda can never return to the Interior
position slie held before the war. She
must learn how to utilize her great
natural resources and employ the
brain and brawn of her virile popula-
tion. A greater proportion of her!
people must become producers and
she must stop breeding parasites.
"Cooties" on tlie body politic are just
as injurious to tlie stale as cooties on
the body of the genus homo are to the
individual. A ban must he put on
tiie pernicious habit of utilizing labor
and material for useless and selfish
desire to shine and dominate. There
is no need to worry over the i|iiesth.m
of bow to find tlie money. Producing new wealth automatically finds ;
the money. Let us. the people of
Cranhrook. do our share of the reconstruction work and share In thej
general prosperity that will force itself upon ns in the near future,

INTERNATIONAL CREDITS
The exercise of thrift by ('ana Hans
is us necessary to the restoration of
tlie normal life of Canada—a cuintry
un damn.noil by the wur—as It Is for
tiie people of devastated France nnd
Dolglnm, It Is the condition on which
financial and Industrial recovery is
based. So stated a member of tlte
committee on National War Savings.
British Columbia Division.
The nations, spent by the tremendous expenditures or the war, nre
looking about for the way by which
i hey can most quickly and easily recover their normal life. Therefore,
Canada Is today endeavoring to teach
her people the gospel of thrift, What
Is more, through the War Savings
plan—through War Savings and Thrift
Stamps   she Ib making saving easy.
Canada will get orders in Europe
today in proportion as she is willing
and able to grant foreign credits.
European nations want many things
thai Canada produces; hut. though
financially sound, they must have credits, which means that If Cani'da is
to trnde with them she must sell on
time. If she does not do so, this trade
will go to other countries.
The Dominion government ;bns offered a $50,000,000 credit to Oreat
Britain for lumber; a cred't nf $50,-
000.000 has heen arranged f - France
to finance manufactured and agricultural exports; while another $25,-
000.000 credit has been arranged to
finance other exports to Roumnnln.
Tho War Savings plan will enable
tin- government to furnish those credits H the Canadian people plnco
tlieir savings at Its service. Tlie more
War Savings and Thrift Stomps people buy the more money will then be
available for credits, the moro trade
will come to Cannda and tbe moro
employment there will be. Besides,
War Savings Stamps an- an excellent iu vest men!, paying 4%''> compounded half-yearly.
