The Institute recommends that a
Public Meeting to consider financing
the proposed Creamery be held In the
City Hall on January 22nd Inst., at
2.30 p.m., provided that all necessary
information haa been obtained as to
costs. The Secretary was Instructed
to notify all members and as many
ex-members as possible by postcard of
this Meeting.
With regard to the formation of a
Junior Farmers' Institute for this district under the auspices of the Farmers' Institute, the Secretary was unanimously appointed Club Organiser
for this new department of agricultural effort. The various Boys' and
Girls' Competitions, which have hitherto been directed by the Farmers'
Institute, will In future be managed
directly by the boys and girls themselves who are members of the Jun-
lar Institute, the Club Organizer acting merely In an advisory capacity.
This Bhould do much to accustom the
juniors to the proper way of carrying
on of business interests, knowledge
which will be of the greatest value to
them ln after life.
The Secretary wlll frame a Resolution on the Gopher Pest to be presented by the Delegate to the Central Institute, pointing out the serious Inroads made by gophers on ranchers
who are entirely, or almost entirely,
surrounded by vacant or Government
lands, and asking that steps be taken
to combat--this pest, which causes a
big loss annually to the ranchers of
this district.
The meeting accepted the recommendation of the Executive that an
appropriation be made towards the
cost of an appeal on the Railways
Act,1 fixing the sum at $20, providing
other Institutes wilt take joint action.
The Directors were empowered to
accept the Auditor's report for the
year 1915, and the power of signing
checks Jointly with the President was
transferred from Mr. A. B. Smith to
Mr. Ivor Bassett.
An Interesting discussion took plaee
t a program of papers, addresses,
etc., for subsequent meetings, and
Mr. R. T. Williams promised to give a
paper on "Hatching and Raising
Chicks" and Mr. H. H. McClure one
on "Alfalfa" for the same meeting.
The meeting then adjourned.
A cordial Invitation Is extended to
all members of the Poultry Association and Agricultural Association to
be present at the next regular month
ly meeting on Feb. 12th, next, to hear
two practical men discuss departments of agriculture In which they
are experts. New members will also
receive a hearty welcome.

It was generally expected that Mr.
Clapp would be thc next  Mayor so
well as alderman for the last several
years, and will guard the city's iuti r-

The situation In regard to training
quarters for thc local recruits is still
Indefinite. The department insists that
they be taken out of tho hotels or bc
moved to tho Coast while the local
authorities reiterate their willingness
to provide quarters If the militia dept.
will forward bedding equipment. The
militia head made a definite promise
that the men would he left here for
the winter, and so far no good roason
has been shown why they ennnot bo
trained hero If the proper equipment
ls supplied. Thc presence of 100 men
In uniform would he a strong stimulant to local recruiting, and It Is the
duty of the militia department to sec
that this equipment Is provided at the
earliest possible moment.
The total number of recruits enlisted at Cranbrook for the present company now numbers one hundred, the
following huvlng signed on during the
past week:

Mineral production In British Columbia will probably constitute a record In 1915. Trail smelter has treated about 400,000 tons of sine ore, a-
bout 800,000 tons have been treated
at the Grand Forks plant of the
Granby Company, and .100,000 tons at
the Anyox plant. The Britannia Company Is handling about 25,000 tons a
month and the B. C. Copper Company
a similar amount. Tho present mineral production of the province Is
stated to be about 11,000 tons a day,
and It Is expected that the completion
of the new plants under construction
wlll bring this output up to 20,000
tons a day.—B. C. Mining Exchange.

Before leaving for the Coast this
week Lieut. Bnnfleld was the recipient
of a handsome gold ring and fountain
pen from the business men of the city.
The .presentation took place at the
City Hall on Monday with Mayor Bowness presiding und making the address.
In a few appropriate words Mayor
Bowness gave expression to his own
and the general feeling of regret at
Lieut. Bnnfleld's departure from the
city and hope for his safe return when
victory has finally been wrung from
thc enemy. Lieut. Banfield replied
briefly and feelingly.
In addition to malting a name for
Itself as a fruit raising district, Creston Valley Is proving that mtkod farming pays. There Is probably more
farming than fruit ranching in the
Valley at present, nnd the farmers
are making money nt It. During the
last week the local branch of the P.
Burns Co. received a shipment of 2",
hogs from R. J. Long of the Creston
Valley, which Mr. Gilchrist, tho local
manager, stateB are the finest lot the
firm has ever brought Into Cranbrook
They are not only In splendid condition but have been properly kilted and
dressed for the market. The Creston
farmers have had thn benefit ot skilled Instruction on the killing and dressing of pork for thc market, and the
appearance of these hogs now on display at the P. Burns store shows that
they have made good use of tho Instruction. One item that accounts for
the splendid condition of the hogs Ip
the fact that they wcre fed on fruit
rejected for packing.
If there Is any efficacy to the saying
"He gives twice who gives quickly"
Creston is surely entitled to all thc
benefits accruing In such a matter. Although the canvas for the Patriotic
Fund was not undertaken In Creston
until early ln December yet on thc
31st of the same month Treasurer C
G. Bennett was able to forward thc
authorities at Victoria a cheque for
the full amount asked of the Valley.
$600. In addition to this thero Is
$1,400 more to come In on deferred

Wo are glad to publish this week the | |10ssible in thc way of assisting   Its
letters of Mr. A. B. Smith and Mr,
M. Davis. Mr. Smith's contribution
shows up In most convincing manner
tlie futile argument of "An Investigator" in our last issue that the farmers
are not Invited to take part in meetings in which they arc most vitally
interested, because tlie eity men want
lo run everything to suit themselves.
Mr. Smith is himself a farmer who
has been in this district for yearB, a
man who takes an active and intelligent interest in tho farmers' organizations and thc welfare and advancement of himself and his neighbors. His
statements are based upon his own ex-
perlence as an officer of the Farmers'
Institute, and the moral to tlie farmer
Is that they should bestir themselves
and take a morc active interest In
their own organizations.
The letter from Mr. Davis, another
farmer-beg pardon, rancher—gives UB
another sidelight on conditions exist
ing in the country roundabout. But
his contentions simply add strength to
tlie arguments for co-operation nnd
organization among the farmers and
ranchers themselves.
With the acknowledged fertility and
productiveness of the soil In the Crnnbrook district it Is only a matter of
time and organization until a   market
Is secured. It may quite possibly prove
necessary for the rancher to change
tlie nature of the products hc has to

but experience may prove  so)   that
there Isn't a sufficient market close

Foster appointed a special Lumber
Commissioner to travel and Investigate the opportunities for Canadian
lumber in tlie markets of the world.
Mr. H. H. Macmillan, Chief Forester
of British Columbia was appointed.
One of thc lirst things he wns instrumental in accomplishing was to Induce
tho British Admiralty to switch business hitherto placed with foreigners
to Canadian Manufacturers. Mr. Macmillan from there has proceeded to the
Oriental countries to investigate and

appointed a special commissioner. Mr.

Mr. Editor—Tho letter signed "An

will endeavor to put him right on one
or two.
Many farmers have told him they
know  nothing  of farmers' meetings
till they are over and that a few city
people take it upon themselves to settle the whole thing.   I call upon you,
Mr. Editor, to bear witness from the
files of The Herald that throughout

of thc oxact time and place of meeting of tho Craubrook Farmers' Institute an Invitation to nil who are Interested,   Also a special reading no

Someone said the other day that the
recruiting of 500,000 men of military-
service age would mean moral conscription in Canada. So lt would. And
su It ought.
But moral conscription operates In
Canada to-day. It is as compelling as
legal conscription, more Impartial in
its draft, and morc insistent in its demands. Coercion by military law says
"Vou must", and there is no escape
unless one can dodge tho officer or
[irovc unfitness. Moral coercion Is j
tiie constraint of one's own conscience, i
its straight word is "Vou ought." And

a ticket and a passport to the loneliest
island In tlie Southern Sea, and ever
there your own conscience will face
you, and its moral imperative will dog
your footsteps and haunt your dreams.
There is only one way u man can escape when conscience says "Vou
ought",   It Is to answer "I will."
Xo perhaps that ls not tbe on:y way.
There is one alternative. It Is tlie way
tlio moral suicide. When a man's
inner sense of right and duty says
'Vou ought", and the man draws back

And that moral tragedy is only a

With the authority either of parental

Cranbrook, Jan. 10th, 191fc.
Editor Cranbrook Herald:—
Dear Sir—In your issue of Jan 0th
there Is a tetter from one who signs
himself "An Investigator", in whicli
he asks what is the matter with our
public market. As a rancher I would
like to say through the columns ot
your valuable paper what I believe to
be the trouble, ln the first place; I
believe the day for creating a public
market is past. With the telephone In
almost every house and our yellow
brother, the Chinaman, at the back
door about every ten minutes of lhe
forenoon, we have not much need of a
public market. While there has been
lots of good meat on the market lately not many of our citizens seem to
want to patronize the producer on the
market when they can get what meat
they require by calling un the phone,
even though they have to pay a higher
Personalty I have not been on the
market for several months. I came to
the conclusion that people would not
come to the market when they could |
get what vegetables they required at
their own door, so I decided to try
and compete with my yellow brother.
But, alas, I have given up In despair,
for the majority of thc people do not
want to buy of a white man; or at
least It seems so. Remember I said
[majority." Two housewives actually
told mc they bought their vegetables i
from the Chinaman and were satis-
fled. No doubt they were, but shall we
ever have a prosperous white British
Columbia under such conditions? I
fear not.
Now what chance has a man got on
small acreage In this district until!
some change ls made In our system of
selling produce. It se-ms to mc that j
bo far as the small farmer ls concern-
ed this will never bc a prosperous
community until we adopt some sys-
tern such as they have In some of thc
larger cities In thc East. Take Moat-
real for Instance. I believe tt Is necessary to have a $100 license In order to
peddle from door to door. If some
such system were adopted here t
white rancher might be able to dls-
pose of his produce to some of thc ■
stores or a commission house If there
were one. As It Is the most of us who
are depending on the sale of our produce for a living arc only existing, the
most of the produce gotng to the hogs
Now sir.'if this district is to prosper
and grow there must ho some change
made in the existing order. Many of
the ranchers here are men who have
given up good positions, or ut one
time possessed a ttdy little bank account, men of ability, energy and substance. They were Induced to come to
this "Land of Golden Opportunity"
through the alluring prospects spread
broadcast of the possibilities of making anywhere from l.tmi to $1,000 par
acre on small fruits and vegetables.
What has been tholr experience? Mr.
Editor, you should take a trip out tn
this district among the ranchers and
you would be surprised to find oul how
many of the remaining ranchers are
dissatisfied. They will tell ynu that
the soil Is remarkably fortlto and wlll
grow the produce all right, that the
climate Is fine and thc scenery lovely,
In all these respects everything Is up
to promises, but what Is the uso of
growing produce If there Is no sale
for it? You can't live on the scenery
or the climate. With a market for his
produce at reasonable prices thc
rancher who wbb not satisfied would
Indeed be hard to please, but until
that happy day arrives or until we
have a white B. C. "Investigator" will
be wise to let others have the hard
work of solving the problem.

You have ever shown a willingness to

Mrs. G. M. Balney read the address

Rev. \V. K. Thomson iii the course
or his remarks stated most emphatically that the* men wno enlist iiove a
right to all the comforts possible. The
Ry. Y. M. C. A. had offered to accommodate forty men, but had not been
called upon to do so He promised
that the churches would do all they
could to make life pleuuant for tlie
recruits if tliey stayed here. The Ministerial Association had been criticized
because they protested against the
condition under which the soldiers
were living, but their protest had
been in the Interest of the soldiers to
secure greater comfort anti proper
accommodation lor them hen; In Cranbrook.
The best people of Cranbrook have
Uie best Interests of the hoys at heart"
was the opening statement of Rev. Mr.
Keyworth, aad that the majority in
Cranbrook were ready uud anxious to
help the recruit to be a better man and
better lighting man in any und every
way possible, li ever there wus a religious war bo believed this was one.
It wus not u wur of creed or dogmas,
but a religious wur In tliis respect, that
everything tliat rellglou stands fortius
been flaunted by tlie empire that desires world dominion, Those who are
enlisting huve not been attracted by
the glamor und glory of war but from
a sense of duty to light to protect the
principles which make lire worth living.
Solos hy Mr. W. W. Scott aud Mr.
Broughton added greatly to the pleasure or tho evening. Capt. Kerr also
had a Tew remarks to make, and afterwards coffee, ealte and oysters were
served to ull present.
The "Girl from Nowhere" Company
played last Friday and Saturday evenings at the Auditorium to good houses.
The performances were very pleasing,
though obviously much condensed, a
word or praise is due to Mr. "Billy"
Oswald for his acceptable rendering
of Septimus Jones, Detective, and to
Mr. Hnrry Hoyland, whose "Hon. Bertie Vivian" was a really finished performance nnd true to life. Miss Zarn
Clinton as "Molly, the Girl from Nowhere", was suffering from nn attack
of bronchial grip, so the audience did
not get n chance to Judge fairly of
the quality of her singing. Her acting
however wus good, anu her dancing
hrst-rate. The love dance (In which
she was accom pan fed by Mr. Barrett
as lover)) described In the program
as "Aztec Glide" was indeed a gem.
The cliorns was brigut, the dresses
pretty, and thc Herald reporter left
at the finish having thoroughly en-
Joyed the evening.

There was a splendid gathering of
soldiers and others at the Army Barracks Saturday evening last In response to the Invitation from Capt.
Kerr. After the singing of a number
of patriotic songs by the audience, Mr.
T. H. Kay took the chair and called
on Mr. Espanosa aa the flrst speaker
on the program.
Mr. Espanosa took for his subject
"Military Reforms Necessary to the
Well-being of the Soldiers In Cranbrook", but his chief plaint seemed to
be that the accommodation waa Inadequate and not conducive to the
physical or moral welfare of the recruits. He also made some serious
allegations aa to the conduct ot the
hotel-keepers. However trom his own
explanations to a later speaker of two
of hla most'striking statements, It
would appear tbat he did not Intend a
too literal Interpretation to be placed
on hla remarks.
The remarks ot the first speaker, almost put a damper on the meeting
coming like a bolt from the blue iky,
at a time and place little expected by
anyone. Before long however, the atmosphere of the ran got back so Ua

Mr. C. A. Cock has received the following letter from James Mllroy, a
Cranbrook boy who was wounded In
the trenches and is now ln the Canadian Base Hospital in France:
Can. Base Depot. B.E.F., France
December 12th, 1915.
Dear Mr. Cock:—
I was vory much pleased to get
your book today. It Is always a pleasure to know that one is not forgotten by their friends. I can assure
you I often think of the very good
friends I have in Cranbrook and look
forward longingly to the time when I
shall be back with them again. To
tell the truth, I nm more homesick
for Cranhrook than I hnve ever been
for any place, and would give a lot
to bo there now.
I suppose the wur will finish some
day, but It is n wenrlsomc time doing
little thought when I left you a
year ago last August thnt I would be
quite so long away. However, here
i am and must make thc best of it.
I am working in the base orderly
room here, and hnve nothing to complain of, as far ns comfort goes, lots
of work, good food, and a roof to sleep
under, which is more than the poor
beggars at the front liave. I often
think of thc ghastly conditions one has
to live under while up at tbe front,
and I wisli with all my heart that
the war may finish soon, so that they
won't have to put up with auch hardships.
We are having llie usual weather
Incidental to winter, rain and mud, a
good deal like England, and reminding
one of Inst winter, only a great deal
better. I shall never forget last winter. Living In the Kootenays would
make anyone hate wet weather, I get
desperately homesick when I think of
the nice clean snow, and the bright

"They shall fight against thee."
Tlie efTects of preaching are sometimes very Queer. Jeremiah had thc
disquieting news tbat the people In
tho pew would fight him. To no
proachcr Is this at all comforting.
Yet, somehow, I have the intuition
that if a preacher ls true to bis message, ho may look for a certain
amount of opposition both active and
Consciously or unconsciously, the
preacher occasionally rams home unpleasant truths to the man In the pew.
There are often two results. One
man wlll go home determined never to
tjome back to the house of God again
On another thc message lias an entirely different effect. "He likes," he
ays, ts lie retires, "the preacher who
can hit him hard." So the minister Is
in no ordinary dilemma. He has no
wish to drive people away from his
church, and yet to be true to God and
his congregation, be must fearlessly
proclaim bis message.
Of course, It Is ridiculous for people
to get "fighting mad" over a sermon
that Is for the good of their souls; and
the action of shaking the dust off their
feet as far as the services arc concerned, would be amusing wcre lt not
pathetic. Some kind critic as lie sees
tlie back of tbe offended man will then
reproach the minister for want of tact,
hinting that If he had used milder
treatment the end that he sought
might havo been accomplished. In
other words, the surgeon should have
given his patient a pill to cure a cancer, Instead of using tlie knife. But
very good, we will let the objection
stand that the less severe treatment
might have hud the doslrcd result.
Here Is another minister of the old
school. Hc sticks to the 18th century method of preaching. He forgets, or ignores, social sins, community wrongs, national transgressions.
Ho disregards tiie fact the Gospel has
an all-round application—an application to business life us welt as to home
life, to labor as well as to love, to
nodal justice as well as to common
honesty, to politics as well as to pride,
to employers as well as to employees But listening to hlm, however,
are men moro or less concerned In
business wrongs, sociul Injustices,
political crimes, and, strange thing,
the minister carefully avoids points
that might give offence. Will the minister escape? No. Behold here ts
another critic in the pow. Ho cannot
understand why tlm preacher does not
"cry aloud and spare not." Nor will
he accept tlie excuse made by the ?n!n-
'stcr tliat he does not desire to drive
men away from bis services. I repeat
•he minister's dilemma is not nn ordinary nne.
Please note two things:

I follow Jeremiah's leading.
