Splendid   Opportunity   to   Advertise
Mineral Besoruees uf this Dislrict at Spokane Mining
Content ion
Tho North West Mining Association
is promoting an exhibition of ores,
minerals and mining appliances In
Spokane beglnulng ou the' nist lust.
The promoters took the matter up
with the Oranbrook Hoard uf Tmde,
iiskhiK iiml a representative dllplaj
be forwarded from this point and placed In charge of a competent representative ol tiie eity nnd district. The
Hoard at tlieir last meeting made un
admlruhle selection In onr Gold Commissioner, Mr. N. A. Wallinger, whosi
olllclal position will give a weight and
un authority to his statements which
cannot fail to he of the very greatest
benefit to the Cranhrook mining area.
Apart entirely from Mr. Wallinger's
olllclal standing, there ls not one tn
our midst possessed of more of the
practical experience and ilrst-hund
knowledge of every phase of the mining industry—prospecting, practical
mining In the field, actual mining, j
practical metalurgy and assaying,
than he, His experience of our mln-
erals, In tlie three centres, Winder-
mere, Fort Steele and the St. Marys |
country, extends to something like
thirty years. He knows the country
thoroughly and the men interested In
the mining Industry of the country
even more thoroughly. Therefore, his
selection is entirely to be commended.
It was thought that the Government
would impose a veto against his actually undertaking the task required of
him, owing to hi*» direct official connection with the industry as fGold
Commissioner nud Mining Recorder,
but happily, the {lowers nt Victoria
made no difficulty aud Mr. Wallinger
wlll now liave to make his arrangements to leave Cranbrook for Spokane
not later than the 17th Inst bringing
a large quantity of samples with him.
When he gets to Ills destination he will
have to set up and arrange his exhibit and make it properly attractive.
His work is all cut out for him and
will be far Indeed from being either a
holiday trip or a sinecure. Still, to a
man Uke Mr. Wallinger, whose Innor
heart Is In mining, the work wlll be no |
labor. .
The Hoard of Trade wishes lt to bo
particularly known thnt all who havo
good samples of ore wlll have them
brought in to the Government Office
by the ltitli inst whore they will be
orated and make up ready for shipment. In all cases samples should, as
far as possible, hc shown In large
masses, the larger the better. A num-
ber of nubbles, or pieces, unless they
be quite exceptionally rich, are ot
little or no good. It is the mass which
catches the eye. Photographs of old
scenes of the mining industry in Wild
Horse or Perry Greek would he most
acceptable and will he taken every1
possible enre of. Photogrftps of the
old timers, men of the dny of R. L. T.
Galbraith, Have Griffiths. Robert L,
Dore and others of the earlier period
of our Industry would be surely Interesting to men of the same period
who now live noar Spokane.
The occasion to advertise the dis-i
trlct Is a greal and most opportune j
one and should he availed of to thel
full, ll is, plainly, in the hands ot
the rlgltl 1111111, It Is up to the public
to enable hlm. as far as they can, to
make tin effective success of the opportunity,
Tlie railway company will carry all
samples to the exhibition free of
Charge, but It will behove the Hoard
of Truth* to make certain provision for
having tin- samples carried back to
Oranbrook again at the termination of
the show. The Spokane people have
an amiable way pi absorbing the best j
of the mineral sample! which reach
them trom lino* to time and of using
them to inducV the idea iu the bruins
of their visitors thut they all came
from the bowels of the earth right under Spokane city or from the Immediate locality,    There is a deal of htt-1
man nature lu such a move, but we
lum* all kinds of use for onr own sum-1
pies, and those who know most about
lt know how extremely difficult a
thing it is to get them together.
Now then, people, bring in your
snmplcs and let us get this thing oft
to a proper start.
Representatives uf Farmers* Institute
Worsted In Verba? Argument by
Women's Institute.
The Crunbrook Women's Institute
hus long had an enviable reputation .
for the splendid attendance at their [
meetings, and the serious und earnest j
manner lu which they attend to their
work, so that the men-folks who Invaded their meeting on Tuesday last [
wero not surprised at what they saw.
The hull was well filled with seventy
to eighty ladles, all busily engaged
knitting or sewing nnd at the same
tlmo attending to tlie regular business
proceedings. The meeting was regularly conucted, with the Lady President, Mrs. McFarlane In the chair, and
the Secretary, Mrs. Shuw, ut her desk.
Their parliamentary proccedure would
put many a man's meeting to shame—
when a member wishes to address the
chair they must rise to their feet and
do It properly, and so in everything.
The Women's Institute are preparing a cook-book of practical recipes
obtained trom their own members and
expect to have it In the printer's hands
very shortly. It will be sold at a nominal price and will no doubt be a welcome help to housekeepers. A great
deal of the time of the meeting was
taken up ln discussing this matter.
After the business of the afternoon
was completed the looked-for debate
between the Farmers' Institute and
the Women's Institute was commenced. The subject waa "Resolved, that
the Women's Institute Is of more benefit to the Community than the Farmer's Institute." The afflmatlve was
upheld by Mesdames W. B. MacFarlane, B. Palmer, C. Couldwell and J.
Shaw, and the negative by Messrs. B.
Palmer, I. BaBsett and R. T. Williams,
the fourth member of tlie Farmers'
Institute team falling to put In an appearance. Many interest arguments
were brought up by both sides though
the ladles had much the better of the
argument and the Judges, Rev. W. K.
Thomson, Rev. Thos. Keyworth and
Mr. T. H. Kay had no difficulty to arriving at a decision. Mr. Keyworth
announced the dlclslon of the judges
tn a short speech In which he took
occasion to give the debaters the benefit or a Uttle friendly criticism.
At the conclusion of tho debate refreshments were served by. the ladies.
The Next Armlet
High  Grade  Ore  Predominates   at
Windermere Property—Big Shipments Expected Soon.
Since the completion of the wagon
road several months ago from the
l.ead Queen mine, near Hrlsco, in the
Windermere district, to the railroad,
three cars of medium grade ore. running $65 to the ton, have been shipped to Trail smelter.
Reports from this property indicate
It to be a very rlcl. one and a mine
thai may be reckoned with as among
the big shippers of high grade ores In
Kootenay-Houndary within the near
future. l*nst week a strike of several feet of clean, htgn grade, steel
For Borne reason or other there
has heen a dearth of recruits at the
local recruiting office of the 225tli
during the lust week, not one being
enrolled during the last seven days.
Splendid reports come from other
points however as to the response
to the call, and Cranbrook will have
to look to Its laurels or be left
To all previous appeals -for men
Cranbrook has responded nobly, but
for all that there are still many eligible young men who have not answered the call. This is an opportunity to go with a home battalion, and
with every available man needed to
ensure victory there should be no
banging bock on the part of those
who are able to make the sacrifice. It
will only be justice on the purt of
employers If It Is distinctly understood that any vacancies created
through men enlisting WILL NOT be
titled by single men. We have beeu
given to understand thut some aro
holding back  because  they think  If
tliey enlist some other young man
who has just us much right to enlist
as they, may get tlieir job. Tiiere
Bhould be no possibility <tf anything
like this occurring, and we believe
employers will be particular In seeing that any vacancies are (tiled only
by married men.
Elsewhere In this Issue appears a
page appeal to tlie young men to enlist. Attached Is the name of Lieut.
Adams, otherwise. Chief Percy Adams

galena was reported as having been
made In the north drift, which it Is
estimated will run ctose to $100 per
ton. The three shipments, which
constitute the mine's output to the
smelter since the completion of the
wagon road, have consisted of medium
grade ores only. These shipments
have been mado only with the greatest difficulty owing to weather conditions, the snowfalls having been exceedingly heavy and slIdeB frequent.
It Is expected that before the spring
thaws make tlio road unpassable for
hauling ore. a number of large shipments will bo made, as there are
about .100 tons on the dump and in
bins awaiting shipment and the work
of taking out ore is going steadily
forward.    Work is at present being
dono on two tunnels, the main tunnel
having been driven fur a distance of
nearly 200 feet, wltli rich showings all
the way, while on the.lower level,
about 200 feet below the upper workings, a distance of ino feet has been
reached with high grade ore on the
face of the drift and It Is reported that
there is every Indication of a big ore
body at depth.
Reports from the property Indicate
that it is exceedingly rich in medium
and high grade ore, with the high
grade greatly predominating. Rich
outcropplngs und surface showings
are reported all over the property, one
vein being traceable on the surface for
several thousand fet.
Although Hearing toy end of the
season the School carnival on Wednesday night wus one of the must successful events of the winter. There

By request, Rev. D. M. Gordon, principal ot Queen's University, has given
the following reurions in answer to
the question, "Why Should a Man
"Many men who are in every way fit
for military service are holding back,
unwilling to face squarely the question
Why Should I Enlist r Note briefly
some reasons why they should.
"It Is the duty ot every man to do
what he can to defend the life and liberties of his country when these are
in danger. The life and liberties of
the British Empire, and therefore Canada, are threatened. If we should fall
to win this war we -must come under
the control of a power whose character Ib revealed to committing the ruthless ravages ln Belgium and ln permitting the Turkish atrocities in Armenia. This truth may not yet havo
come home to us because of our easy
confidence that somehow wo MUST
win, but every day It becomes clearer
thut the whole lighting force of the
Empire must be brought into action If
wc arc to win.
"It Is tho duty of every nation to
stand hy Its allies to the utmost, when
Its word has been given. Frame Ib
alreudy battling for her life.   We are
pledged to stand by her, and if she-
falls uur turn wlll come next. Thc
fute might be delayed for years, but
tho doom would be certain fur ourselves or for our children.
"lt Is the duty of every great nation to help the weaker nation when
crushed by the brute force of n mighty
tyrant, all the more so wli.cn it has
pledged Us help to preserve the lite
and freedom of the feebler power. Germany's brutal treatment of Belgium
has roused the Just wrath of Brltato,
and Canada cannot sheathe hor sword
until the sword of Mother Britain
goes back to the senhbard, for wc are
members of the one household.
"As a part of a Christian Empire
we are called to do our share In curbing the great fighting power that has
brought on this war, and that, In the
spirit of the tiger, has committed this
awful crime against civilization and
humanity. A spirit of service and of
sacrifice ls moving our Empire and

Aside from the wider considerations
of Empire and world-service which
huve curried the Dominion into the
war, tlie existence and ownership of
Canada itself are at stuke. This is an
aspect of the struggle which many
young Cunudluns do not seem to realize. This northern half of North
America is the one great area In the
world most suitable for German colonization, lt Is closer to Germany
than any other available territory, and
its cllmute and resources are similar
to those of Germany.

the Fund, to the end of February the
sum of $5411.10 has been collected and
forwarded to the Provincial Branch
at Victoria. The amounts collected
each month are as follows: September
1915, $861.90; December 1915, $1738.20,
January 1916, $1522.30; February, 1916
$1288.70. During the same period the
local branch has given assistance to
12 families to the extent of $1295.96.
Tho collections have been very satisfactory but there must be no let-up
to the work. The struggle In which
the Empire Is uow engaged is such a
titanic affair that it Is necessary for
every citizen to do all he (or she) can
towards vanquishing the common enemy, and silver bullets are equally

who stay at home have the duty of
looking after the dependents of the
brave boys fighting in tho trenches In

minor effects of the war, which wlll
be felt by newspaper  publishers the

By the death of the Hev. B. B.
Kyckman, M.A.. D.D., which occurred
at Toronto on the 5th March, Canadian Methodism has been deprived of
and plunged Into mourning for one of
the choicest of her sons. Born on thu
22nd day of March In the year 1830
lie entered the ranks of the Methodist ministry at the age of 2*3 and
continued to pursue a successful ministry for nearly fifty years, forty of
which were spent In the active ministry and ten an a superannuate. He
has bold such Important charges aB
London, twice, Brantfnrd, Almont, Ottawa, Brockvllle, Montreal, Kingston.
Though for ten years he has occupied the position of a retired minis-
tor, he has never abated his zeal and
scarcely his activities along the Hue
of his chosen vocation, for he has
never permitted himself to feel the
Infirmities of old age, often under.
taking to walk muny miles of recent
years to fill some pulpit und help out
some needy cause.
At thc last General Conference
Which was held In 1914 in the city of
Ottawa hc wus the only superannuated minister present who could boast
of never having missed a session of
that body since his flrst election to It.
As a man of exceptional administrative and executive abilities he was
always In demand upon boards and
committees where those qualities were
most In demand, occupying as he did
a place on the Oeneral Board of
Missions of his church. The Court of
Appeal, two college boards and sev.
eral other offices where he never fulled to prove himself as virile and
alert as the youngest and most active.
As a member of thc Court of Appeal
he served lo that capacity only a few
days prior to his decease.
Dr. Kyckman was the eldest brother of Mr. W. Ryekman of this city
and they were very much attached
tn each other throughout their lives.
But beyond the Immediate circle of
his relatives a keen sense of personal
loss will be felt by great numbers of
Methodists who hud learned to know
tho doctor as a man of pure sympathies and a tower of strength In
whatever capacity he might bc called

Tlie Invermere Hockey Team went
dowu to defeat on Monday night last
in a good clean match played against
the Cranbrook hockey team in tlie covered rank Athalmer. the official score
being 10 to 8. It is hoped that a return match will shortly be played on
the (.'ranbrook rink.
Tlie ICQ was good mid the air bracing. The supporters of both rinks
were well represented, there being
several people from t'ranbrook among
the on-lookers.
The star players on the home team
were Bennett In goal. Wedd in centre,
Magurn and MacKinnon on the wings,
while on the Cranbrook team Mcllwalne and Sommcrville showed up to
best advantage.
The score was five-five at halt-time,
but youthrulnes snd greater practice
during the season told tor victory In
the end.
A complimentary supper wus given
at tlie close of the game by three ot
the lady patronesses of hockey at the
house of Mrs. c. A  Bennett.

made and fines imposed by the local

that M. Oerman was working on the
