ROAD   PRACTICALLY COMPLET-
ED THIS YEAR-NEWS NOTES
AT INVERMERE.
Invermere, B.C., March 5-The
best news tbat it has heen possible
lor a long time tu semi nut Irom
this district and news heavy iu its
import to this place and the surrounding centres is that a parly ol
Canadian, Pacific railway, engineers
reached this neighborhood yesterday
and are busily engaged In making
the final examination ol the located
line ol the Kootenay Central branch
nl their railroad, which lor several
years has been working its way slowly towards us Irom both ends ol the
Columbia-Kootcnay rivers valley. 01
course thc engineer in charge ot the
work will make no admissions whatever, but from what is gleaned Irom
outside reliable sources It Is likely
that ihe line ol the railway will
cross Irom the east to thc western
bank of thc Columbia river ia the
neighborhood ol the mouth ot Toby
creek, a little to the north ol tbe
townslte ol Atbalmere. Swinging
south-west trom that point it is possible thc yards (or this neighborhood
will be located on a large flat tract
6! land, immediately and contiguous
to the northern boundaries ol this
place. From there it sweeps south
aSag the Iront of Lake Windermere,
and crossing thc old Canterbury
Point, on part ol which this place is
situated, it will follow on down the
western shore of thc lake, hugging it
closely 'until it reached thc Kootenay
river, which It will again follow until it comes to thc bridge at present
under construction, at a point on
that river slightly north ol Wasa.
The details ol this route were mode
lully public in a map ol the East
Kootenay district, published by thc
Canadian PaciOc Railway Hritish Columbia land department, at Calgary,
Alberta,.in connection with the sale
ol their lands In this part, the date
ol issue being .lanuary 31st, 19H._.
It ia aMIelpatcn that the final testing out ol the location will in short
order be followed by the letting of
another construction contract closing
up the final link between the two
ends, whioh construction is now being
carried on. This is an approximate'distance of say, sixty miles. II
this - surmise proves to be correct
and construction goes om with a reasonable degree proves to be correct
mean that the railway should be by
this place in as far as the dump at
least Is concerned, by at least some
lime early in 1814.
A change has been announced in the
personnel ol the local officers ol the
Columbia Valley Irrigated Fruit
Lands. Limited. Mr. George Mian
Dennett, who has practically been the
engineer in charge of all tlie eom-
pany'e' construction since 1000 has
resigned, and Mr Frank I'. Stock-
dale, superintendent nf construction,
Is also leaving the company. Ills re

Stockdale has Wen looking alter thc
Held work ol thc company's construction practically since tlie. first
sod was turned on their fifty thousand acre bidding. On the eve ol
leaving the company these two popular persons were tendered a compli-
iiieutury banquet by their lellow
employees, at which Mr. E. Mullen
dainr, thc manager ot the company,
presided.
Mr. Bennett leaves to become man
aber ol the Invermere Construction
Company, Limited. A largely local
concern starting out with a capital
of filly thousand dollars, whose business it will be to carry a large line
ol builders supplies and hardware, In
addition to which tbey will go into
the lurther business ol contracting In
all Its branches, together with preparation ol plans and deta Is, and
furnishing expert advice in ihe matter ol Irrigation.
At a general meeting ol the Invermere Sport association held last
week a review ol the work carried
through proved to be so satisfactory
that It was determined to add to the
duties ol the officers the task of making tho summer sports ol this chosen
part equal In' brightness and high
character to those which have been
common to the winter amusements,
which tho organisation was first
formed to bring through. Much appreciation was expressed by those
prow lit over the manner in which the
details had been looked alter iby the
secretary, ond a hearty and a unanimous voir, ol thanks In his lavor
was passed. The lirst sports of the
season to he undertaken hy the association will likely be drawn oil on

POST OFFICE M0VES11NT0
.   PERMANENT HOME
HANDSOME     EDtFICH PRAISED
BY PUBLIC AND MORE COMFORTABLE FOR EMPLOYEES.
An epoch In the advancement ol lhe
city occurred on last Monday morning when tbe public found the post
office had moved into the line now
government building. All day Monday
the corridors ol the.post ullicc were
crowded with customers waiting (or
their new box numbers and their new
keys. The work ol changing thc
several hundred boxes and koys involved a, large amount ol tedious
work but by Monday evening thc
bulk ol the patrons had been cared
lor.
Tho interior ol the new buildibB
has been described In these columns
before, but thc public this week have
expressed universal admiration of the
new post office. The furnishings are
very One, the interior wood being
highly decorative and a lit companion
for the fine tile floors and beautiful
electric chandeliers. Thc building is
well lighted both by day and night.
The force, arc delighted with their
new quarters and the extra line facilities lor handling thc mails, increased office room and increased
space lor assisting the work at the
general delivery window. There arc
709 lock boxes in three different
si7.es and prices. New hours will be
observed in the new office. The general delivery window will be open
trom 8 a.m. to 0.30 p.m. and the registration and money order window
from 8.30 a.m. to 0 p.m. The build-
lea will be locked'?-.radeye
The new   stall   will be Postmaster
endenon; Misi Havill, assistant;
Miss Lcaman, register clerk; Miss
Finiey, delivery clerk. Misses llard-
gett and Dixon, dispatch clerks.
The ensconsing of thc post. olTice in
this handsome new building is a lilting mark ol the advancement ol thc
city. In the last lew years the post
office has made several moves. In tin'
early days it was kept by Postmaster R. E. Beattic, in the building
now occupied by Pye's store, being
moved later Into the Beattic and Atchison drug store, now the lle-atitle-
Murphy Co. Later It was moved Into thc building now occupied by Ra-
worth Bros, jewelry store and again
into a building owned hy Mr Brattle
Baker street, where it remained
until located in Its present permanent
home.
THE  CUSTOMS  DEPARTMENT.
Upstairs the customs offices are as
luxuriously situated with lnrge general office, private office for Collector
White, and large store rooms lot
parcels. Messrs. .Small and Morton
are also delighted with tbejr new
quarlcrs, wM-h arc larger, brighter
and belter equipped than their old
offices next to the Herald. An elevator Irom the post office delivers tlicir
melt nnd parcels. Heavy goods may
be stored downstairs.
The building is fitted with modern
and up-to-dnte lurniture throughout,
steam heated and is thoroughly modern In every respect. It is a credit
to the city and a landmark lor the
erection oi future buildings.

CLOSING DAYS OF LEGISLATURE
A GREAT DEAL   QF IMPORTANT
LEGISLATION   RUSHED
THROUGH IN DYING

Victoria, Feb. 27.-A rapid advance, with legislation all along the
line, characterized today's parliamentary .proceedings, all measures ol the
session being now before thc house
and it being expected they will be
disposed ol, II not tomorrow evening,
at a shott sitting Saturday morning.

Every Voters' List in the Province Cancelled—Every Man Entitled to Vote
Must be registered by April 7th
Utmost Confusion Exists Owing to Suddenness and Arbitrariness of Government's Action
CRANBROOK III
ASSOCIATION MEETS
VIGOROUS    EFFORT    WILL  BE)
.MADE TO   SECURE NAMES
FOR NEW VOTERS'
LISTS.
For some reason or other, ol
which no one in this section ol the
province appears to have thc slightest idea, the Mdlride government
has plunged this province Into a
state ol thc utmost confusion.
Ewery voters' list is cancelled and
voters must all rc-rcglster by April
7th. It is well known that this
means only a very partial registration throughout large sections ol the
interior, where hundreds, possibly
thousands ol electors, arc off at well
nigh inaccessible points in this weath-
Lumber jacks, miners and prospectors will lie few in number, one
would surmise, on the new list.
However, efforts must be made to
scciiro the applications ol every man
possible, aside from any party leanings altogether. It is extremely
probable that both Dominion and
provincial redistribution, measures
and it is to the best Interests of lhe
province to put up the best sliowing
possible. As it Is, Irom the hurried
notice given, and Irom thc widely
scattered character of so large a
proportion of the Interior vole, it is
in our opinion practically impossible
to obtain anything like a full per-
centagc of the vote.
Reasons lor this arbitrary conduct)
on the part ol the government havo
as yet, not been plainly prcsenleri to
the people, nnd opinions expressed
mav lie largely discounted as guess'
x-nrk.
S,, tar nsribe .Herald ear. size up
the situation, and from information
from several quarlcrs, it is ol tbe
opinion that nn early Dominion general election is nt hand ami that
Premier McBfidc, In common with
the other provincial Tory premiers, is
making ready to help out his Dominion party friends. Again, trom
another quarter, the suggestion is ottered that Sir Richard McBride Is
cither going to Ottawa, in some capacity or other, or off to London to
represent Canada.
Neither of tin- last two suggestions
appeal to us as lieing at all pro-
liable. Mr. Mcllridc is now at thc
very zenith ol his political powers
in this province, nnd it would not be
nt all characteristic of thc man, to
cut off four years of splendid attainment lor thc extremely doubttul
prospect ol distinguishing himself to
any marked dugrco either at Ottawa
or in London. In a large measure
tlie qualities that have placed and
held Sir Richard In high place 1 in
this province, would cut but very
little weight in eastern Canada, and
certainly none at all in the old
country.
It would appear to bo lias part ol
wisdom lor Sir Richard, both .personally and as leader ol hii party in
this province, that he should rest
satisfied with the honors and emoluments, that have come to him in his
youth in his home province. In the
event ol his leaving lor what he undoubtedly would consider a wider
range lor his. ambitions, ho
might        quickly havo        to
realize that his talents are
not those Hint make the winning] kind
nl appcnl to eastern people or to the
sage old heads ot both parties In tbe
old country and the diplomatists at
the British embassies.
I His retirement from thc provincial
political field would undoubtedly
spell termination to Tory autocracy
in this province'
I 11, is not only with regard to the
wiping out ol the provincial lists
that so    much    confusion must and
j will exist in every    section, despite
' any care taken ,by tlie ministers    Ut
! enlighten the public at the last moment.
I Everyone locally knows the contusion created here, no two men agreeing upon thc meaning ol thc first report received Irom Vlctotln, ami   the
' second report, but added to the contusion,    introducing n    new    (actor
, which no one could quite comprehend.
The Herald set about obtaining such
official explanations as would set all
doubts at rest, and in response to
telegraph enquiries received are the
following courteous and satisfactory
replies Irom the   Hon. Altorney-flen-
|eral ami the Hon. Provincial Secretary:
FROM THE ATTORNEY-OWNER A L.

While bill was in committee I Inserted section 12 which gives commissioners, ulreudy nppiiiitt.il, lull

unless registrar under section six ol

tbe applicant belorc him at thc court

Commissioners already appointed or
any other official authorized under
the act to take affidavits should proceed in the ordinary way to take
applications and forward them to

April. There has been no attempt
] to take any advantage of anyone by
I
these new amendments, and il people
do not get their names oa the list

their own fault. We are only, too
1 anxious to have every person on the

possible and have no disqualified persons place their names upon list.

THE TORONTO    GLOBE'S SIZE-

(Special to thc Herald)
Toronto, Mar. I,—The probability j
ol a Dominion election on the aiiavy
issue increases daily. In that election the people ol Hritish Columbia
are likely to break away Irom party-
lies and vole lor tin- policy that provides tor the naval defence of the
Pacific coast. If Mdlride is pledged
to support Borden's policy ol a contribution and to oppose the stationing ol a licet unit on Pacific roast'
he will naturally want u hand-picked

lie dangerous (or llonlrn's policy 11s

Editor Globe.
('From Saturday's Calgary Albi-rlaii).
Vancouver, B.C., Mar. 2—On,, bun
dred measures were passed during
tho session ol thc British Columbia
legislature, which ended Saturday,
(me of. the last, acts passed was
lo cancel the present voters' list and
make a new one, while another was
to make the term of succeeding legislators flvo ycurs Instead ot lour.
Some wise-acres think there, is an
election In sight, but this is hardly
likely in view ol the (act that only a
year ago the Mcllridc government
was returned with a large majority.
It seems pretty generally understood that Sir Richard Mcllridc will
hardly lead his party through another election in British Columbia.
Everyone knows Sir Richard Is ambitious and several years ago he attained everything that British Columbia lias to oiler, and his friends
expect soon to see, him cither join
lhe Ottawa government or go to
London in some representative Canadian capacity. Next election Hon,
W. ,1. Bowser is likely to Vad the
party. The most Important facts oi
thc present legislature was granting
free lands lor settlers and another
creating a public park for the district around Mount Robertson. A
measure was presented raising the
government.taxations on timber, and
the plan was at thc last moment
abandoned until next year. Doubtless
another action along these lines will
be presented. *
The government is planning to drop
ns soon as possible lhe personal
property tax, as it has plrt-adv dropped the poll tax, and also to increase
tin- natural resources.
The most important railway legislation was an act tn guarantee the
Canadian Northern railway bonds lor
terminals in west coast cities of
Port Mann, Vancouver, Westminster
and Victoria for ten million dollars
at lour and a halt per cent, The terminals, with buildings, property and
lines, are tn cost twenty-two and. a
hall millions.
Acts were also passed regulating
moving picture shows ami increasing
the number nl judges lor all superior
courts ol the province.
Wind was received in tho city on
Monday that the provincial legislature had revoked and cancelled all
the old voters' lists and that it
would be necessary lor those wishing
to have tlicir names placed on the
new list .to make application lietorc
April 7th. This gives only thirty
days for tho securing of names, and
politicians,' both Liberal and Conservative, were soon busy. A meeting of the Cranbrook Liberal association was called to meet In thc club
looms over Lester Clapp's store on
Tuesday evening.
The meeting was attended by aloul
two hundred, Dr. .!. II. King .ir.'si.I-
ing. It. E, Nate was chosdu sci.-
tary pro tern. The mat'ii .1 lhe
voters' lists was discussed and un
motion a committee was appointed
to act in connection with the ecu,
miasioncri for securing thc names of
all throughout the district. Those
named were: Messrs. E VI. Small.
T. M. Roberts, ('has. It Wjrd, .1. E.
Kennedy and .1. R. McNabb.
The committee were Instructed to
get busy nnd endeavor to cover ih,
district thoroughly liefore April ,lb.
This necessitates a vast amount »,t
work. All applications f-ir voters'
uitisl lie Hindi- in writing in tbe
presence ol a commissioner and ! pr-
iviirdi-il in the local government office
beliire April 7lh.
It behooves every Liberal in lhe
lislriel In act at once and make
proper application belore the eloslny
ol the time when applications will be
received.
Speaker Eberls, since it obviously
violates the rules ol parliament Involving expenditure of public money.
In carrvlng the second reading ol
thc Taxation Bill, Finance Minister
Ellison announced that the government proposes to adopt within lour
years all the recommendations ol thc
commission on taxation. The current session's movement In this direction centres in the abrogation ol
the poll tax, through which the loss
of revenue is caused ot about $350,-
000. 1015 11 Is Intended to exempt
improvements Irom taxation, aad
In 1017 to abolish the personal properly tax and rearrange thc scale ol
taxation In Incomes.

I This requirement will meet tbe situation- ln which the Vancouver grncral

tbe provincial secretary may occur if

Tbe decision of the provincial secretary as to revocation of a license

felt that two Associated Hoards

It. L. *. Galbraith, delegate Irom

Fernie.
The question ol re-establishing tin-
Associated Hoards ol East Kootenay
was also discussed. Mr. Hryinner
was to supply ,a copy ol tho constitution.
Messrs. Dcnno and Ilalsall drew attention to the fact thai a provincial
agricultural commission had been appointed, but that no notice ol nny
meeting in South .East Kootenay
had been issued. The old, old story,
of neglect of the best section ol the
province. The same gentlemen moved that the agricultural department
be communicated with forthwith.
rhe regular monthly-meetings will

months ol .lime, .Inly and August. A
detinite subject to la- discussed each

THE OLDEST   NEWSPAPER MAS
IN SOUTH EAST KOOTENAY
RECBlfES HIS REWARD.
Mr. A. B. (irace, of the Prospector
staff, has been appointed collector of
inland revenue in the Cranbrook office, relieving Mr. Harry White of
ihat end of his duties, which are paid
for on commission, averaging bc-
um i*n three and four hundred dollars
per annum.
The Herald greatly regrets that
this untimely news item only reached
this office at a late hour this afternoon. Mr. Orace is one of the
pioneer press of British Columbia He
came to this province from the I'nited States, where lie had shortly before shouldered his gun and foitght
for the Union. Mr. Orace is a
married man, has no children of his
own, but he has a little grand niece
afeout 12 years old.
It is understood that once the
change in the offices takes place, arrangements will he made for Increasing Mr. White's salary to its original
amount, as he is an official who has
served faithfully and well for the
past seven years. Mr. Grace takes
charge of his new office immediately.
He will Ite his own boss, subject to
control of district inspector.
The work is fairly mechanical, hut
it requires a good general knowledge
nf modern bookkeeping.
Tlie Herald wishes to place on record its unreserved congratulations,
nnd hopes that Mr. A. II. Orace
will, In due course, rise to the.honorable position ol a district inspector. The old man has worked hard
for this district and deserves any
good thing the party can place hli

president of the Mountain Lumbermen's association is ON which he
thoroughly deserves. sa\s the Canada

association Mr. Anstie had Imvji
practically responsible for Itn great
success. He is one of thone enthusiastic young men who are never content with anything but complete success and he puts into tits work a
measure of enthusiasm and business
ability which will always ensure success in any work which be undertakes. It is not to be wondered at-
therefore, when he resigned his position as secretary, in order to accept
the position of managing director of
the Forest Mills, that his confreres
in the lumbering industry should conceive the fitting plan of making him
the president of the association
which he had served so conscientiously and successfully as secretary. This
is indeed a peculiar and notable
honor for any men to have achieved.
Such eases are extremely rare and
Mr. Anstie is to be congratulated upon the unique recognition of bis services which has thus lieen made. It

world's masterpieces are on Edison Records, done by the greatest artists, You can play them again and again, until
you have familiarized yourself and your children
with the sort of music they ought to know—classical
and popular.
Stop in nt your Edison dealer's and have him
play some Bine Amberol Records. They will

The ('mill debato of !\lr. llorden's
naval resolution, preliminary to the
second reading of tin* naval drill, emphasized some of tin* more peculiar
features of this nrrangoment; In elos-
infi the debato Mr. Horden declared
that alter raising ?..5,ooo,nuo for
three hnUlcsliips, the government
would hand them over as a sort of
"call loan" to the admiralty.
Mr. Horden declared, "We propose
that thai sum of money shall he ox-
■peiided hy lhe government of Canada," under the expert assistance of
the. Hritish admiralty, arid "We do
not propose that those ships shall
pass oul of tin* ownership of the,<V
naitian people ot government. . . .
Our prnpos,.] is that these ships shall
lie in lhe ownership of, (lie Canadian
people.    .    .    .    ami    shall    he snhjecl
io recall by the people of Canada
through Iheii parliament, and ive say
that ui*. id, nol believe thai the
people of Canada desire lo Imve this
measure suhmtttedt to them. We say
that everything that is in this measure has already lieen .submitted to
the people of Canada before the last
general election and that the people
of Canada passed upon, that, question
with no "uncertain voice, when tbey
Have tbe verdict that they did on
1 hi-. 21 si ot September, I.U1."
Thai is Mr. Horden on Kebniaiy
J.ltb, 1018, whe„ In* had a majority
in parliament.
What< was , the previous record of
Mr, Horden on tbe same matter. On
the opening of the session of i.iin-11
when tho Lauefor government's pro-
I'.raiiinii' for tbe Canadian navy was
announced Mr. Horden moved a practical vote of censure that the speech
from the throne "gave no Indication
whatever of anv intention on the
part of your excMleaey's advisers to
consult the people on the naval pol-I
icy of Canada."
That dealt with thc permanent
naval policy. Il was voted down,
ami then came nn amendment by
Hon. I<\ l». Monk expressing regret
that Ibe speech from the thnuio
"gave no Indication whatever of the
Intention of the government to consult the people ou its naval p ilicy
and ibe general question of the contribution of Canada to Imperial armament."
This precisely covered lhe questions^ both of contribution, us well
ns permanent policy, and that
amendment was voted tor'by Mr.
Horden as leader ot the opposition
and almost every one of bis followers.
That was in November, NUft. Tbe
Laurier government had proceeded to ■
lay tire ground work for. a permanent.
naval .policy when thc reciprocity
quest ion made it desirable to appeal to tho people, on the Liberal
principle of doing so whenever a
great question of policy led to a
dash of opinions in the country.
Thc campaign was fought in August and Septcmlier, 1911, Mr. Horden
made tours .through Ontario, Quebec
and the Maritime Provinces, nnd in
bis whole tour he neVot onoo talked I
ol an emergency or the need for a
contribution, and such references to
the nnvtil policy as lie did make were
all to the eltout that the people
should bo consulted before anything
was done. In. Quohcc he carefully I
avoided the French speaking districts, leaving thorn In tbe hands of
Iris Allies, the Nationalists, who
based their whole (Igtil on opposition
to any Canadian aid in Imperial defence.
On September 19th, Mr. Borden is-
sued his final appeal to thc people,
which was published in every Conservative, paper in the country. In
that final appeal there was not one
word referring to anything hut reciprocity.
Finally on thc night of September
21st, 1911, when it became apparent
that he bad won, Mr. Horden issued
the. following statement: "Tlie people
have given 'their answer to those
who desired to force the reciprocity
compact through parliament by the
strength of a temporary majority
which possessed no mandate thereon.
While the Liheral-Oooscrvative party
made its plans and its pronouncement against this compact the
triumph is that .of the Canadian
■people rather than that of any political party."
Yet now I'remier Horden says,
"Kverything that is.in this measure
has already been, submitted to tbe
people of Canada before the last general election and the people of Canada pronounced upon that.question
with no uncertain voice."
'an anything be clearer than that?
In his own words, Mr. Horden is
Hying to force bis naval contribution
expedient through parliament, "Hy
Hip strength of a temporary majority
which possess no mandate thereon."
A OIlALLnNGR IN ELECTION.
The .position of the opposition was
learly shown by Sir Wilfrid Laurier
when he supported the .amendment of
Mr. Verville, labor representative
from Montreal that, "The consent ol
liament should not he given to
ibis resolution,until it has been submitted and received the approval of
the electors." Sir Wilfrid Laurier
showed how, this was directly in line
with, the previous position taken by
Mr. Horden and challenged him      to
dopt it, declaring that not to d0 so
would be a breach ot faith with the
lcctoratc Mr. llorden's only reply to this*' was the threadbare tu
qupquo argument, with a few. sarcasms on the desirability of public
men fulfilling their pledges undi a
flat refusal to submit his policy to
the electorate. Fulfillment or pledges is evidently no longer a part ot
tbe Constrvative policy as laid down
in the Halifax platform.
SHOULD   HAVR      REDISTRIBUTION FIRST.
Now that the naval debate has entered upon its second phase, ou the
second reading of the hill, this necessity for its submission to the
people has, come up in n more emphatic form than ever, in tho shape of a
demand from thc west that before
the government finally commits Canada,to its naval contribution policy
the prairie provinces should he given
their lair share in the settlement of
the question. ,Mr. Turriff of Assina-
hoia moved that, "It is the constitutional duty of the government
under the Hritish North America
Act immediately to Introduce a measure for thc readjustment of thc representation of the provinces in the
bouse of commons according to tho
population of the said provinces as
shown hy the census of 1911, and
that the house does not proceed further with the hill until such readjustment has takea place and the
people have been duly consulted on
the said bill.
This effectually cured tlie government benches of what Dr. Michael
Clark called their "coidemic of dumbness" and started the debate afresh.
While no new facts have been brought
out by the government side, the debute has nt least shown thai Mr.
Horden and his followers ate ns
blind to their constitutional duly
uh they are forgetful of pre-election
pledges and that tbey Intend if possible to force this legislation
through without   giving the western
provinces any adequate voice in its
selllement. It will be Interesting,to
sec how Conservative members from
the west vole on tbis amendment and
whether they, will put party loyalty
before thc constitutional rights
their constituents.
Already! .there are rumors in tho
corridors that the government will
try, with the aid of the speaker, to
gag tlie house and Iorce the debate to
an end with a practical application
of the closure. Should they attempt
this in the. face of the growing repugnance of the; country to their retrogressive Tory practices, it will
undoubtedly arouse general indignation both in and out of parliament
and aid in .the fall to which Mr. Borden and his followers are so blifidiy
riding.,
LIBERALS STILL LEAD HOUSE.
It was fitting nnd in harmony with
precedent that thc first move in the
Canadian parliament for tlie'jfcMwr
recognition of Captain Scott and his
fellow victims of the successful British expedition to the South Pole,
should have come from a FrcnchyWi
nadlan Liberal and been eloquently
seconded, by the French Canadian
leader of the Liberal party. It was a
brief episode in the house, but for a
few minutes thc proud patriotic
words of . Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
Hon. Rodolphc Lemieux lifted parliament far above the usual bounds of
its procedure. They both expressed
their pride as Hritish subjects at
sharing in the glories won by Captain Scott and his party, and equal
pride that the old country and its
navy was as rich in. heroes today as
ever in tho glorious past. As a result
of the action taken hy the opposition
leaders it is possible that Canada
will take some part in making the
bereaved relatives of these heroes of
tbe Antarctic, wards not merely of
the Hritish nation, hut of the whole
empire.
A BRITISH   CRITICISM.
The Manchester Guardian ot February 7th, 1913, ably contrasts the
Canadian naval tribute policy with
the more vigorous policies ol New
Zealand and Australia. It says in
part:
"The battleship New Zealand, inspects by the king on Wednesday,
left England yesterday for New Zealand. It is the first battleship owned by a colony and built at her expense: it will he the most 'powerful
ship on the Pacific; and in time—for
it takes longer to make officers than
to build ships—it will be manned en-
tfrely by New Zealanders. Australia
too is building a fleet, and it ton
will be her own fleet, controlled by
her own admiralty, and regularly
stationed, in her own waters. This
policy of separate fleets, deliberately
adopted by Australia and New Zealand was also thc policy ot Canada
until Mr. Borden's government came
into power—
"Thc    chief objection to the. (Bor-
deti)KpIan is that it does some    violence to colonial nationalism and   to
lb.* principle of   no taxation, without
representation;, and that if il is modified by giving Canada representation
the cabinet committee of imperial
defence, then,the imperial .parliament
has a just grievance in addition     to
the Dominion.parliament, because the
committee is not   completely responsible to either.     But are there     not
nival objections equally strong?
think there arc and it seems to
a little ungrateful to Australia
New Zealand,   the   first colonies
have ships of their own, to try
make out   that they arc doing a less
useful service   than Canada offers under her new bill.
Decentralization has its great
uses In naval affairs as well as in
pstiitics. The Australian plan puts
the whole strength of nationality into the fleet; the Canadian plan divides it—'it temparizes, it gives now
but may    withdraw,    it is   hedged

"The event has filled the hearts of
everyone with grief and pride," he
said, "with grief because of too sacrifice of their lives, with pride because their dearly-bought conquest
hears tribute to the indomitable
character of the race, to their in-
trepedity, the resolution and capacity
for endurance of thc British people at
large. The expedition of Captain
Scott, as the expedition of Franklin,
was intended to he of service to humanity, and I have no doubt that
the records found, which served to
Scott as a pillow, will hereafter he
of greatest scientific interest to the
world. We in Canada belong to tlie
Hritish empire, and there is, I need
not say, a feeling of solidarity and
fraternity between tbo component
parts of the empire. We feel that
theis) heroes are ours."
Mr. Lemieux proceeded t0 read
Scott's last appeal, and said that
tlte British parliament, through
Premier Astjuith, had declared that
the appeal would not fall upon deaf
ears. He would suggest to tbe
premier that Canada might well afford In the supplementary estimates
to put aside a sum which would bear
.    .    ...        ....       ., ,       ,     .    the tribute of the administration   of
about withcondmon^it has already -^^ to ^    heroM who M .^

Premier Borden said he was very
glad that the member for Rouville
had taken the opportunity to so eloquently express that which had lieen
in tbe minds and hearts of all officials, and particularly In the minds
and hearts of the government. Everybody had been moved by tlte tidings
from the other side of the world
which told a story of courage, endurance and heroism perhaps never
excelled in the history of the British
nation. 1
"I was purticdlnrly stirred," said
Mr. Borden, "hy the story of that
man, who, feeling that his presence
with his companions might make it
impossible for them to secure safety,
went nut, into the darkness ot the
Antarctic morning to meet death
that his friends might be saved.
This story appeals particularly to
men in this country who know     thc
[trials   endured    hy their   ancestors
.here, one, two and three centuries
ago, and which have left their     im-
1 press on the ideals of the Canadian
people. I am sure that the deep
and heartlelt    sympathy, of      every
1 man and woman In Canada has gone
out of the widows and children of the
brave men who perished. The ears
of. the people of Canada are as sensitive to an appeal of that kind as
.those ot our kinsmen beyond the sea,
set party against party. In, Australia and New Zealand every one
will he Interested in the navy as he
loves his own country; under the
Canadian scheme he will support the
navy In so far ns he approves this or
tbat object of policy which It is being used to support—a very different
standard of devotion. The Australian
plan again is likely to he -productive
of new ideas of tactics and strategy;
the Canadian plan will encourage an
excessive centralization of control
and administration nnd 11 deadening
uniformity of naval ideas."

SATISFIED OWNERS
When more than 100,000 satisfied owners of Studebaker cars agree
that they are all we have claimed for them, it ought to be assurance to you
that they are the best cars in the world at their price.
There are in use today on the roads of America almost 100,000 Studebaker (E-M-F) "30" and Studebaker (Flanders) "20" automobiles, and
thousands of them are in use in almost every country on the globe.
This world-wide popularity was not gained by accident. It is the
result of 60 years of successful manufacturing experience, and of a determination to make the world's best medium-priced car. How well we succeeded is shown by the results.
These cars are made in immense quantities in the largest factories in
the industry, of the best materials money can buy. The great Studebaker
Corporation makes every part of these cars—there is no shift of responsibility. We take the Utmost pains to KNeJW THAT THEY ARE RIGHT.
Studebaker cars come in a wide range of prices and models from the
sturdy, splendidly-built "20" at $950 to the big, powerful "Six" at $1,800.
The Studebaker "20" and the Studebaker "30" are remarkably good
cars, and are exceptionally low-priced.

heart. Next to the horror lelt naturally at the (ate which had overtaken the Scott Party, die one feeling) uppermost In the consciousness ot
all was that the bosom ol thc old
mother country was not barren, and
that today It still produced men
equal to the most Illustrious of the
past. He pointed out that Captain
Scott belonged to the British navy,
and in the battles ut the British navy
there had been no greater example
ol heroism than had been given In
that distant land.
He relerred to thc fact that at the
time ol the South African war there
had been constant jibes at the British soldier, but that he had proven
htmsell equal to bis forebears, and
alter the war Brielsh statesmanship
had been tound equal to the problems
and bad solved them' in a manner
that had amazed the world. England was still England ot the past,
and the last request made by Captain Scott should be honored by his
lellow countrymen.
MURPHY AND WOLGAST
FIGHT       TWENTY      TERRIFIC
ROUNDS TO A DRAW.
San Francisco, California.—
Harlem" Tommy Murphy ol New
i 'ork and former lightweight champion Al. Wolgast, fought 20 terrific
'rounds to a draw this afternoon. For
I the first ten rounds, Murphy had tho
better ot thc battle, but he tired and
Wolgast evened up affairs by inflicting severe body punishment as the
fight ncarcd the final round. Both
men sustained considerable punishment and were weakening last as the
end drew near. Experts express the
opinion that Wolgast had completely:
recovered, from his operation. ' The
decision was popular.
Wolgast literally louglil hinisell to
the point ot collapse In the gruelling
211 rounds. Murphy, too, was tottering when the light ended, but It was
apparent that his reserve was greater than that ol Ills opponent. Wolgast fought his best battle since his
illness ol two years ago, but tlte old
dash was lacking. Systematical application ol tremendous right and
lelt drives to the body In the final
rounds enabled Wolgast to earn a division ot the honors. Throughout
the 20 rounds there was little, Id
any, idle time. Murphy took, the
lilt in his teeth at tho outset and lt<
was not long before he had battered
his man's face almost to a pulp. Rapid nre rights and lofts to thc face
delivered at close range, seldom went
amiss, ami when the contest was
half over the Harlem boy seemed in
a fair way to win.
Wolgast meanwhile was content to
husband his strength, although the
punishment he landed carried more
than his opponent. Wolgast's only
hope lay In this direction, and from
the 10th dcvoled his attacks to Mur-
'l'hy's mid-section. Time and again
j alter being   worked In heart-breaking
rallies, which all but carried Ihe belligerents from the ring, he would
reach his opponent's stomach with
rights and lefts, the impact of
which was heard in the remotest
corner of the arena. Murphy could
not escape these onslaughts, altliougb
I hey served only to accelerate his
lighting spirit.
In the 19th round Wolgast, lighting
with the ferocity of an animal al
bay, landed so frequently that Murphy welcomed the sound ol the bell,
whilst Wolgast smiled at his Iriemls
about the ringside, as best be could
with pulled face and split lips, tht
last round resulted in a question ol
the survival ot the fittest, Science
was forgotten, the nun going all
round the ring head to head, shoulder to shoulder and slugging away as
though the fight had Just begun, with.
Referee (Iriltln, trantlcally trying to,
pull them apart. Three minutes ot
this work found them on the verge '
of collapse, with only the rope
strands saving Wolgast Irom dropping to tho mat trom sheer exbaiis-
sinn, while Murphy was eagerly watching lor the timer to clang his
Kong.

WISE CANADIANS.
Berlin,   Mar. 4.—A    German bank
messenger  named    Briralag who fled
to Canada with a large sum In tank
notes  belonging to the bank,     sad
who was arrested    there, tM    hem
brought back    to Germany for trial.
A reward of 12,50* was offered    for
>lils capture, and, when arrested,   he
'had tl.1.000 on him.     The Canadian
] police deducted the amount of     the
reward trom tho money before remH-
' ting It  to Germany, oa the grand
'that they had had unsatisfactory ei-
perlcncts   with    Germany is similar

Mr. J. E. Anenault, a Justice ol

Wellington, on the Prince Edward
Island Railway, uyi:
" Four years ago 1 slipped in thl
itation and fell on a freight truck,
sustaining a bad cut on tbe front of
my leg. 1 thought tbis would heal,
but lustesd of doing ao It developed
Into a bad ulcer, and lator Into a form
of eczema which spread very rapidly
and also started on the other leg.
Both legs became so swollen and lore
tbat I could only go about my work
by having them bandaged. My doctor
said 1 mii.it stop work and lay up.
"After uix months of tills trouble
1 consulted another doctor, but with
no better result. 1 tried all the salves,
liniments and lotions 1 heard of, but
Instead of getting better 1 got worse.
"Thli was my condition when 1 got
my first bos of Zam-Buk. Greatly to
my delight that first box gave me relief. I continued to apply It to the
•ores, and day by day they got better.
1 could see that at last I had got hold
ot something which would cure me,
snd In the end It did.
"It Is now over a year since Zam*
Buk worked a cure ln my case, snd
there has been no return of the
edema."
Such Is the nature of the grsst cures
wbtch Zam-Buk Is dally effecting.

LAND NOTICE
EXAGGERATED DAM STOHV.
What is purported to be an:interview with tho Hon. S. N, Parent,
president of the streams commission
of the province of Quebec, has lieen
published lately, in which Mr. Parent is reported as saying that the
dam which tlte commission Is undertaking to construct on the St.
Maurice river, on behalf of the government, will he three times as
large as the Assouan dam on the
Nile, which is now the largest dam
in the world. Mr. Parent must have
been misquoted, for whereas the
proposed dam on tlie St. Maurice
Ivor will cost !l,360,000, aii-d form a
reservoir with a capacity of 150,-
' 000,00ft cubic feet of water, the Assouan dam cost $21,000,000, aud results in a reservoir with a capacity
of 35 milliards of cubic feet of water. The dam, however, will undoubtedly bo one of the largest on
tlie continent) and will have an important effect on pulp and paper and
other industries on the St. Maurice
river. According to present plans,
contracts for the work are lo be called in the spring, and tlie dam will
take at least three summers to
construct. It will be situated at the
town of ha Loutrc.
FARMERS'   CLUtiS  IN ONTARIO.
Isn't Hm'I'i* a hint to other provinces in trio following paragraph taken
from Hie Toronto News: "Since the
inauguration of the system of appointing district representatives of
the department of agriculture iu
each county in Ontario there has
sprung into prominence the farmers'
clubs. They are fostered by some
of tbe more advanced farmers. The
entire idea Is for tho spread of general agricultural Information, and
tbe introduction of new ideas and
new methods. These clubs, though
not very large, give lhe farmers in
any one section the opportunity of
getting together and talking over iu
a business-like manner anything which
appeals to them as being ot interest
and value' to the community. Occasionally outside speakers are brought
In to address the club on scientific
work, but more often they arrange
the addresses among themselves;
thus tbey are of a double value.
These clubs arc not for agricultural
matters solely; they also take
charge In many cases of the social
work in the community."

EDITORIAL NOTES
Ye editor, has been under the
weather tor several days past, hut
Is able to be up and about again, and
in a sort ot aimless way to n\oMo an
effort to edit his paper. One cannot
cease work these hard times.
.lust an odd note.or. two. One
wonders what the provincial government pays tor. Here are members,
who have not opened their mouths
on tho floor o( the house throughout
the entire session, receiving the same
Increase ot pay as goes to the. regular wind jabbers. For instance
Cranbrook'is representative could not
think of anything to s»y throughout
the session, aud yet he is lo get
extra $400 along with the rest, of
the crowd.
Thc Herald has just received a very
interesting and   instructive brochure,
tho    product   of     that • well known
young   Canadian    authoress,      Miss
"Agnes Laufc, a former member of the
great   brotherhood    of     nowspapor
workers, at    Hie ii»»' when i'v lh*r~

In mentality,    which will Ik vouched
lor by every newspaperman, who ever
had thc pleasure ol her acquaintance,
This little brochure 1b, like thc great
bulk ot Miss limit's literary product,
entertainingly written, and full      of
well digested information on the subject discussed.      The brochure is entitled "Am 1 My Brothers Keeper?"
a study of   Hritish Columbia's labor
and Oriental.problems.
Another very enjoyable literary
product is once again returning to
our office table, in tlie shape ol
"Our Dumb Animals," a paper published in Boston, Mass., which
should be in the hands of every
youngster in the land. This little
monthly paper is published by the
Massachusetts Society for the ..Prevention ot Cruelty to Animals, of
whieh Mr. H. Rowley, is president
and Mr. Guy Richardson, editor. The
paper was founded in ;18fi8 by Mr.
Oeo. T. Angi'll, and has been conducted purely upon philanthropic
Kncs, ever since tho year I8H8. .It is
monthly replete with stories of animals, beautiful pictures; .and each
issue appears to please youngsters
more than the- last and to guide
them in habits of care and love for
all dogs, cats, and other domestic
animals. Whilst there is useful
simple information, concerning all
kinds of animals, how to treat, feed,
and make the most of them, every
word through this magazine's contents -is a loving effort to instruct
rightly every child ns regards hi*
or her relations with animals. The
subscription, price is, we believe,
$2.00 n year, but we have no assurance ot that, as yet, as the last issue on file passed through the baby's
* hands, and the cover was completely
destroyed.
Tbe friction in thc Mcllridc ranks
is well emphasized by an editorial
note in last Sunday's Colonist, dealing with so distinguished a member
as Mr. W. II. Haywaid, M.P.P. for
Cowlchan, who has filled thc excellent office of deputy speaker during
the past session, The Colonist
frankly says:
"This is what is the matter wit)
Mr. W. II. Haywarri, M.P.P. lor
Cowichan. He made a somewhat
long, but not wholly uninteresting
speech on the motion to go into supply. He was reported synoptical ly
He was followed by Mr. Fraser, of
Cariboo, in a very carefully prepared
speech, In which many Important
fact.s relating to bis constituency
were set out, Mr. Fraser's remarks,   having    been   in> manuscript
and being worth publication in lull,
were so published. They were also
made a matter of editorial comment.
Mr. Hay Ward's' speech were not.
Hint* lllne lnchymne.
All this, painful as it may * have
been to . the member for Cowiclian,
did;not warrant him in saying things
that were not true, for.it is not true
that reporters are required to carry
out instructions as to what members
they shall report and how they shall
report them. It is also absolutely
untrue that a statement made in the
house by the minister ot lands was
suppressed     by Thc Colonist,      Mr.

was     written by Robert Burns      in

staffing ot the farm of Eltisland.
"I am entire stranger in your country," wrote thc poet, "and heaven
knows shall need advice enough. Will
you be so very good as to take a
poor devil of a sojourning rhymester
under your care'.' I assure you I
keep th** scripture in my eye, for I
'ask in faith, nothing wavering.'

you have something in like manner I
would wish to call friend. If you did

Seven against, and twelve for the

"It is only a gift of money. You
will never hear any more of.it. There
is no danger. Tbe British will hire
men at 25 cents a day, and Canadian mothers and sisters will s'lltcr
no lbss. As for thc money, Ontario will pay lor it, and the "west
will pay lor it. It will not take
your sons Irom your homes, as the
infernal I-aurirr would do."

Quebec ,as the man who,, in defence ol
Canada, would take the habitant's

At first the (encing master was

Elko turned out en masse lo welcome, the "Dreadful Twins," at the
Grand opera house Thursday niaht
and the boxes as usual were lit.pi'
with Elko's 100 and their Iriends
The receipts ran into four figures and
in addition to every seat being taken
every foot ol standing mom was occupied. The members of the Italian
colony, who are enthusiastic opera
goers, were there in force to applaud
thc artists and shout His, His, In
stentorian tones. At 8.80 tho curtain raised with railroad promptness,
but. without* prayer, and lor one hour
and thirty minutes no one tn thc
audience needed sylphur tablets to
keep them warm. It would be out
of order to particularize any one of
the artists, every one delivered the
goods and hit thc audit-nce with their
jovial personality and pleasing manner. It was Ibe best show ever
played in Klko and well worth the
price arid then some. By special request the company will play in

BRITISH COLUMBIA FRUIT GROWERS Mf/INT DUTY RAISED
IMPUTATION       A.SKS     KOII
CENTS A MOX TARIFF ON
AMERICAN APPLES.
Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 28.-Thc Iruit
growers ol Itritish Columbia, through
their representatives, Messrs. Agur
and II. M. Window, president and
secretary, respectively, ol the British
Columbia Fruit Growers' association,,
11, tomorrow, ask the government
to consider raising the duty on
American apples Irom IS cents n'liox
lo at least 25 cents, the latter being
the United Slates tariff against Canadian apples.
For the lirst time Ihe apple growers ol Hritish Columbia have conic
into active competition with tho product of other provinces, and ol the
western fruit growing states. Until
Ibis year (hey have had a local market capable ol taking all they grow,
but this year hundreds of orchards
came into hearing, and the crop ol
the province was exceedingly large,
with correspondingly low prices.
Tho same condition prevailed in the
western states, Oregon, Washington,
Idaho and Montana, and also prevailed in Nova Scotia aod the east
generally.
Hritish Columbia growers had lo
tako the competitive price, anil It
hurt. The deputation to Ottawa
has lollowod. There are other requests to be made to thc government. The British Columbia growers want more protection than the
tarid affords, and so will ask that
tho Inspection and Sales Act he
amended so that American shippers
will be obliged to mark their fruit
belorc it enters Canada, as American
shippers are not under Canadian jurisdiction, and as the average producer has nothing to do with the
final destination of his fruit, this being handled by the co-operative association. This request o( tbe
Pacific coast Iruit men is not likely
to be realized.
They are also asking a change in
the grades of apples. When the
grades were established a few years
ago, the British Columbia men Insisted on.,a fancy grade (absolutely

WOODROW WILSON INAUGUR
ATED PRESIDENT
TAKT    RELINQUISHES   EXECUTIVE POWER   TO HIS SUCCESSOR — BRYAiVIN
FOREGROUND.
Washington, Mar. 4.—Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey was inaugurated
today as president of the ..United
States and Thomas It. Marshall, of
Indiana, its vice president.
Under tho dome of the nation's
capitol, in tlie presence of a countless
cheering concourse of his fellow citizens, thc new president raised a hand
toward a prophetic sun ttiat burst
through dissolving clouds, and pro-
nounocd thc occasion a day ot dedication, not of triumph.
ll( was an intensely human, precedent-breaking inauguration. With menu
hers of hit. chosen cabinet surrounding him, the justices of thc supreme
court before him, his wife and daughters actually dancing for joy on the
platform below, and William Howard
Tuft, ex-president of the nation, at
iiis side, 'tho new president shouted a
summons to alt "honest, patriotic,
forward-looking men," to aid him,
extending the promise that he would
not fail them in the guidance of
their government.
While tbe president's concluding inaugural words were tossing In tum-
uft turns waves of applause the retiring president clasped his hand and
every patriotic servant in the, ranks
of private citizenship.
"Mr. President," said Mr. Toft, bis
face, beaming with a broadening
smile,,"I wish you a successful administration and the carrying out of
your aims. Wc all will be behind
you."
"Thank you," said President Wilson, and he turned to shake the hand
of his secretary ol state, William
•Jennings Hryan.
There they stood—Taft, standard-
bearer of a vanquished party after
sixteen years of power; Hryan, persistent plodder of progressive democracy, thrice defeated, accepting a
commission , from a new chieftain,
and Wilson, the man of the hour,
Victorious, mustering, as he expressed it, "not the forces of party, hut
the.forces of humanity."

ELKO
(By Fr«l Roo).
Mr.   Frank    Itobson,    the popular
traveller, was nn   Elko visitor    last
week.
Sam llilburn, r-x-mnyor ol Kalis-
pell, and captain ol the Kl-rtli'ia I
Light Horse, was in Elko, Cranbrook and Fcrnie last k:« huviiT
elephant hides and sluvpskins.
Elko turned out en masse in welcome the "Dreadful Twins," at the
Orand opera house Thursday tiisht
and the boxes as usual wore llllet!
with Elko's KM and their trteii'ls
Thc receipts ran into lour figures nt.il
in addition to every seat being taken
every foot ol standing room was occupied. Thc members ol tiro Italian
colony, who are enthusiastic opera
goers, were there In force to applaud
the artisls and shout His, His, In
stentorian times. Al S..10 the curtain raised with railroad promptness,
but without prayer, and Inr one hour
and thirty minutes no one in thc
audience needed sylphnr tablets to
keep them warm. It would be out
ol order to particularize any one of
the, artists, every one delivered the
goods and hit the audience with their
jovial personality and pleasing manner. It was the best show ever
played in Elko nnd well worth the
price and then some. By special request the company will play in
Waldo in Ibc near future.
Tom McKay, ol Medicine Hat,
was in Klko last week visiting the
writer.
There's no Carnegie library, no
graft investigation, going on in Elko
as we go to press.
A big band of Stony Indians arrived in Elko Irom Morley, Alberta,
and went down to Tobacco Plains Indian reserve.
Another big mine discovery near
Elko. Tho ore was found to contain: Herman silver, brass buttons,
gold fillings, celluloid, borax, and
pepsin all in paying quantities and
the lodes somewhere in the vicinity
of the big (ire clay deposits, that
have been sold lor fifty thousand dollars to a Calgary syndicate, con-
talas twenty million dollars ot
something, and just need capital to
go ahead and find it. Elko is sure
set in diamonds amid flowers that
ever bloom.
.lames Welch and Nort Macl.can,
two of'Fernie's live wires, were in
Elko last week.    .
It. F. Green, member fur Kootenay,
is doing the good little lioy act down
at Ottawa to perfection. Sometimes
seen but. never heard.
The Elko board ol trade wrote tlie
district health officer at Fcrnie two
letters hut got no reply to dnto.
When you enn't catch fish mend
your nets.
Thomas A. Kdison, In a recent, interview, set forth that people nowadays sleep too much. So that's
probably the reason he invented the
pronograpb.
Elko, Miss Wardner, may be a
small town, but its too big for one
man to run.
Sam Pyke, who dabbles in politics
and gum boots, is visiting the Crows
Nest Pass this week fur the Vancouver Rubber company. lie hangs on
to the rubber hoot business like a
Boston terrier.
James Miller, the popular manager
lor P. Burns and Co,, Fernie, was in
Elko Saturday. .fames Is a walking gold mine of information, and
the owner of a memory like a filing
cabinet, and a Chesterfield wherever
you meet him.
Win.. Murdoch, ol Flagstone, B.C.,
who is at present in Glasgow, Soot-
land, writes, that l.loyd George is
driving thc best Irom the British
Isles, and its only a short while before the Germans wilt have an easy
Job making sausage of thc rest.
Cameron and Anderson, ol Calgary, who own considerable land between Gateway nnd Roosville, arc
putting demonstration (arms in each
of their blocks, and getting thc services ol those who have made a success In the valley and still doing it
to give their best advice lo Ihe new-
settlers.

(Special correspondence).
Mr. Walter Mugoon was In Cranbrook Wednesday last on business.
Mrs. Louie Larson went to the hospital WediH'Mlay, where she intends
remaining under the doctor's care for
a tow days.
Tbe children ot this place arc suffering, from measles this week, which
has greatly diminished tlte regular
attendance at tbe schools.
O. W, llarr has been down east
to Minneapolis on a trip. George
says it feels good to get back east,
and also to get back west. It makes
a fellow feel good going and coming.
Many will remember D. .J. W. McDonald who was employed at the
office of the Crows Nest Pass Lumber company nearly two years ago.
He left here in a very weak condition. He writes that he has completely recovered and expects to
drop in und sec us soon. He is now
at his old home at Woodstock, Ont.
Mrs, Moore, of Brandon, Manitoba,
is visiting at n*n I .card's for a short
time.
Tbe local Friday morning was held
up here nearly four hours on act-mint, of a slight accident in the

"Big Ben" writes from Calgary,
where he has been engaged In the real

job and wishes Slats, our comix-tent
manager, to forward a contract at
once,
Smiler,   was sent to Camrose   after
.fini    Houston,    commonly    called
reporting at Calgary.
Sounds pretty good to bear the
planer going again after the winter
recess, and it promises to make a
good run for    the future.
Reports from tbe hospital or Provincial Constable McLain's condition
are not very encouraging. He remains about the same.
r. A.'Sadler severed his connection at the, office nnd left Saturday
afternoon for Bull Hiver, where hi
has secured a position with ibe C.P.
]{. office department.
B. E. Marble was In Cranbrook
Monday.
The greeting heard among the
children is "How's your measles?''
instead of "How's the skating?" and
we notice, they get away with it.,
Pat Kelly, supreme authority at
Camp 8, called on friends at Cranbrook Saturday and Sunday.
Mr. Mowatt, of Nelson, B.C., called
on business last week. Mr. Mowatt
is in the provincial forestry department.

BRITISH COLUMBIA FRUIT GROW'
ERS WANT DUTY RAISED
IMPUTATION       ASKS    FOB  25
CENTS A BOX TAIUFF ON
AMERICAN APPLES.
Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 28,-Thc Iruit
growers ol Hritish Columbia, through
their representatives, Messrs. Agur
ud Ii. M. Winslow, president and
secretory, respectively, of the British
Columbia Fruit Growers' association,.
will, tomorrow, ask thc government
to consider raising the duty on
American apples from 1.1 cents a 'box
tn at least 25 cents, the latter being
the United States tarift against Canadian apples.
For the first time thc apple growers of British Columbia have c0me
into active competition with the product of other provinces, and ol thc
western Irult growing states. Until
this year they have had a local market capable ol taking all they grow,
but this year hundreds ul orchards
came Into bearing, and thc crop of
the province was exceedingly large,
with correspondingly low prices.
Tho same condition prevailed in the
western states, Oregon, Washington,
Idaho and Montana, and also prevailed in Nova Scotia nod the east
generally.
British Columbia growers had lo
take the competitive price, and It
hurt. The deputation to Ottawa
has followed. Tbero are other requests to be made to thc government. The British Columbia growers want more protection than thc
tariff affords, and so will ask that
tbo Inspection and Sales Act be
amended so that American shippers
will be obliged to mark their Irult
before It enters Canada, as American
shippers are not under Canadian Jurisdiction, and as thc average producer has nothing to do with ihe
final destination of his fruit, this being handled by the co-operative association. This request ot the
Pacific coast fruit men Is not likely
to be realized.
They are also asking a change in
the grades ol apples. When the
grades were established a few years
ago, the British Columbia men insisted on..a fancy grade (absolutely
perfect fruit) and had the other top
grades placed but a little below.
They are now asking that the standard of the grades be lowered, which
Is rather notable as the Nova Scotia
growers In convention a couple ol
weeks ago, asked that they be made
a little higher. It Is stated that In
all Canada there have not been sir
boxes nl fancy grade apples packed.
This year    freight rates and    other
matters relating to their industry
will be brought before thc govern
uient by the deputation tomorrow.
WOODROW WILSON INAUGUR
ATED PRESIDENT
TAKT     lltiMKQUISIIES   EXECUTIVE POWER   TO HIS SUCCESSOR, - BRYAfON
FOREGROUND.
Washington, Mar. 4.—Woodrow Wilson of New -Jersey was inaugurated
today as president of thecUnlted
States and Thomas H. Marshall, ol
Indiana, its vice president.
Under tho dome of the nation's
eapitol, in the presence ot a countless
cheering concourse of his fellow citizens, thc new president raised a hand
toward u prophetic sun trial burst
through dissolving clouds, and pronounced the occasion a day of dedication, not of triumph.
li( was an intensely human, prcced-
ent-bieaking inauguration. With mem-t
hers of hiii chosen cabinet surrounding him, thc justices of thc supreme
court before him, his wife and daughters actually dancing for joy on the
platform below, and William Howard
Tuft, ex-president of the nation, at
his side, the new president shouted a
summons to all "honest,- patriotic,
forward-looking men," to aid him,
extending the promise that he would
not fail them in the guidance ot
their government.
While the president's concluding in
augural words were tossing in tum-
uftuous waves of apptauso the retiring president clasped his hand and
every patriotic servant in the, ranks
of private citizenship.
"Mr. President," said Mr. Taft, his
fact; beaming with a broadening
smile,,"I wish you a successful administration and the carrying out of
your uims. Wc all will be behind
you."
"Thank you," said President Wilson, and he turned to shake the hand
of his secretary ot state, William
■Jennings Bryan.
There they stood—Taft, standard-
bearer of a vanquished party after
sixteen years of power; Bryan, persistent plodder ot progressive democracy, thrice defeated, accepting a
commission from a new chieftain,
aud Wilson, lhe man of the hour,
victorious, mustering, as he expressed it, "not the forces of party, but
the forces of humanity."

Have you heard about Peps?
Peps is a new scientific
preparation put up into tabloid
or pastille form, which provides an entirely new and
effective treatment for coughs,
colds and lung and throat
troubles.
There is no connection
between the lungs and the
stomach.
Suppose something were
wrong with your stomach—
say indigestion, or ulceration
—would you think of taking
some medicine which went—
not to your stomach, but to
your lungs ?  Certainly not!
Why then, when your lungs
and chest are affected, should
you dose your stomach—an
absolutely separate organ —
with medicine? Is it not far
better to treat the ailing organ
direct?
Pepi pro-
vido a direct
treatment for

Pepi fumes are boiling and antiseptic They heal soro tissue and kill

GLDSING DAYS OF LEGISLATURE
(.Continued liom page one).
ALLOWANCE OP $30,000.
The member, for Newcastle ulso tit—
sired lo be informed oqucornlug an
item in the estimates making an allowance of $30,1)08 tn one .lolm Watt
in settlement of all claims re coal
and petroleum licenses issued to him
iu South Kast Kootenay.
".lohn Watt was a pioneer locator
ot coal anil petroleum claims in
South Kast Kootenay and these
were subsequently taken by a tympany," stated Sir Itichard. "Thc
claim ol Watt eventually readied the
courts and the trial judge decided adversely to him on question of tact.
An appeal was taken by Watt to
the full court, and the decision then
given conformed tn the judgment of
thc court below. But there is an interesting Item in connootlon with
the full court Judgment to which the
attention of the executive of the gov-
elnmont was called. The full court
refused to go Into the question of
lact. intimately all the. facts were
reviewed before the executive o! the
eminent was called. 'I'hc lull court
aud those appearing on his behalf.
There was no possible way of having
toe caso taken tn a higher tribunal,
and as Walt hail paid many, thousands of dollars into the treasury for
licenses and had expended large sums
for surveys and as Watt. Iiiul shown,
to out satisfaction nt any rate, that
he was the original locator and was
entitled to tin- property, we, after a
most, careful review of all the facts,
concluded that as an act ol grace tne
government ought to compensate bim
to the extent nf $30,000. This was
in thc general public interest and it
was an action wc felt we could readily justify."
Mr. 1'nrkcr Williams intimated that
be thought the payment had been
made iu reparation ol some mistake
ol tlie department in wrongfully having issued the license.
IN PUBLIC INTEREST.
To this Sir itichard replied that
tbe lands in question were In a reserve in South East Koatcnay and
when the licenses had been Issued
tbey carried the stipulation that the
government would not lie responsible
for any controversies which might
arise between sinkers. He stalled
that, people who went Into the
country did so with full knowledge ol
the content of the licenses they had
secured. The premier also declared
that he wished the house to understand that the M0.000 vote covered
the payments which Watt had made
for years on account of his licenses
and renewals, and he assured the
committee that the government had
not decided to recompense Walt until It had been satisfied tbat such
action was in the .public Interest.
Dr. McOuirc, Vancouver, stated
that lie agreed with the member for
Newcastle that the item was rather
a curious one, and he asked if any
litigant who was not suited by the
decision of any court could, as a result of the precedent, appear before
the executive of tho government
seeking redress. He then referred to
the South Vancouver tax lands sale
ease, in which the courts had decided
that by reason ol certain irregularities in connection with the sale nf
tho Anderson property, the sale was
Illegal and ordered the restoration id
the property to the original owners.
Dr. McOuirc stated that many innocent purchasers had made improvements on the land, and he said he
would like to know 11 those people,
who had bought the disputed land in
good laith, were entitled lo appear
before the executive seeking redress.
"I must at nnee say that any person who feels that he has a good
case has a right to appear before thc
executive, and l will say that he will
he heard," replied Sir Itichard. "It
does not follow, however, that every
applicant will he recompensed, because every case will have to be
dealt with on its merits. In regard to the tax sales In the vicinity
of Vanncouver, I do not know that
tbat would be an instance for the
government to find a remedy."
AN INSECURE TITLE.
"Any person buying property at a
tax sale should know that he is
buying an Insecure title," declared
Hon. A. E. McPhllllps, president ot
the council. "I have very little
sympathy for tiny person buying
property at a tax sale, because 1
always teel that some poor man, Is
losing ,hls property simply. because he
cannot (Hid thc money to .pay thc
taxes due on it. In thc case in
point, tbe sale was not conducted by
the government, but by a municipality."
Dr. McOiilrc stated that in the
South Vancouver case the land had
been sold and resold, and the transfers were made after an official ot tho
government had .passed on the tax
sale title in thc land registry office.
Mr. McPhillips was of thc opinion
that the government would only be
responsible in the case of the issue ot
indefeasible, title.
Away down towards the last of thei
supplementary estimates appeared on
Item ol 13000 voted to thc Vancouver high school cadets as an aid /towards defraying the expenses ol that
corps when It visited Australia. Tho
major portion of the grant was
made before the trip wns undertaken.
Being opposed     to soldiers   or any
thing tbat might, throujh the exercise of fostering care und training,
become a soldier, Mr. -lohn T. William Place, Socialist member for
Nanaimo, was moved, when his eye
encountered the item, lo deliver an
oration ot tbe most approved Socialist type,

£u backup    the   citizen, of Van- cobda and noaralgla.    Wearing      an
'artificial top piece counteracts    this
couvcr in arranging that the cadets
should make the journey. The
premier stated that the sum given by
the government was but a very small
portion of the total cost of the trip.
Sir Itichard then went a point further, and said:
"1 would like to say to my Irielid
that, if his time will permit, I will
write to Dr. Hrydonc-Jack, of Vancouver, and I feel satisfied that he
will arrange for a parade of the cadets in order that the honorable member should he able to look the boys
over. II he should do that, I feel
feel certain that in years to come
satisfied that the honorable member
for Nanaimo would feel proud to
know that those were the boys who
had accomplished such splendid work
in Australia, representing Hritish Columbia and Canada. They are a
splcniM lot of young chaps; tbey
will be the men of tomorrow, and 1
feel certain that in years to come
good results will accrue to us because of the trip they so recently
made to Australia. I will be glad
to wire Dr. Brydonc-.Iack, so that be
may arrange to hold this parade in
order that the review may occur under the personal auspices of the honorable member for Nnnnimo."
OPPOSED TO DEFENCE.
Prolonged applause greeted this
generous oUcr ol Sir Klchard, but
Mr. Place did not appear to accept
it In thc spirit in which it was tendered; it only aroused him to a
lurther. declaration thnt he was opposed to militia, boy scouts, a navy,
or anything that was suggestive ol
military or naval service.
"But isn't thc militia a splendid
Idea?" quizzically suggested Sir Itichard. ,
'•It maybe Irom your point ot
view, but it is not from mine," retorted the member for Nanaimo.
"But would my honorable, friend
not admit, that thc discipline ot the
Hoy Scout movement is a splendid
thing for the development ot thc
character of boys?" urged thc premier. '
Mr. Place insisted that tho whole
thing waa militarism, pure and
simple. He asserted that he was
not complaining about thc trip of
thc cadets to Australia, but he objected, he said, to thc fact that some|
man had gone to thc schools in Nanaimo and urged the hoys there to
identify; themselves with thc Boy
Scout movement. He declared the
schools should be preserved to the
uses of education in thc orthodox acceptance of the term.
The subject was dealt with for
another fifteen minutes, and it was
allowed to drop. ,
The committee Anally concluded the
passing of all thc Items in the estimates, and, having risen and reported, it was moved that supply be
formally granted nt thc next sitting!

How much better it would have
been had the man, now chronically]
bald and wearing a toupee, but realized earlier In life the approaching
danger and devoted a Utile regular
attention lo his hair, whieh would
have saved It.
There is a remedy which will absolutely prevent baldness.. Loss of
hair iu nine eases out of ten is unnecessary, being due to dandruff and
the germ that causes it. This germ
must he destroyed and the nccunuila-
HER.P1C1DE
tions of dandruff checked. Then the
hair will not fall out, but instead
will grow naturally and luxuriantly.
Newbro's Herpicide is the remedy,

the original remedy that kills tho
dandruff germ ami is absolutely dependable.

BRITISH COLUMBIA TO

(Continued Irom last week).
I.EOISLATIVE REPORT.
finance Minister Price Ellison is
speaking:
Among the newer buildings Is an administrative building, 175,000; a
court house at Quesnel, 125,0110, and
lor the completion of the court house I teau,reroents   ol   the service.

ved in thc surveying ol the province,
ltimhia now, occupies in, Great Britain that such a building will be a
great advantage to tlie province, especially as It will be In the very
center of London, near Trafalgar
Square, and in the end will be cheaper than paying rent for the present
offices ol the agent-general. In lact
the revenue will ultimately give offices tree.
$100,000 has been voted for the
Provincial Normal Schools in Victoria and $500,000 tor the provincial
university, which is a re-vote.
Public schools throughout the province will cost $550,000. It will be
tinted that there is provision, ot $50,-
000 for protection ot river banks and
also $60,000 tor wharves generally
throughout the province. I may say,
however, that as thc Dominion government in other parts ol Canada
has made Itself responsible for such
expenditure, we expect to get all
such amounts voted in the past refunded and negotiations arc on foot
towards that end. In all, that vote
lor works and buildings has been increased by about $111,000.
EXPENDITURE   ON ROADS AND
BRIDGES.
The appropriation lor roads,
streets, bridges and wharves is
greater by $900,000 than last year,
the total sum being $5,851,500. This
sum includes $150,000 for the development of Strathcona P«lr,Vhlcli
is destined to he one of,the great
pleasure resorts of America, aad
$130,000 for improved road machinery.
i'hc miscellaneous expenditure has
been reduced from $4,237,080 in 1012
to $3,085,010 in the present .estimates. This is largely the result
of appropriations usually made under the head of "Miscellaneous" being transferred to other votes. As
you will see, $300,000 is being voted
lo the completion and organization
of thc Provincial University, for
which there is another appropriation
of $500,000 for buildings.
$264,000 FOR AGRICULTURAL
PURPOSES.
The various votes lor the purposes
of agriculture outside ot thc vote
for the administrative staff amount
to, roundly, $204,000, the largest
sum yet voted to that end. But the
work is of such a. character, and the
interests affected so Important, as
to recommend even a larger appropriation. This does not include
$26,000 for bounties on wild animals. $300,000 Is being devoted to
improvements on the Songhecs Indian reserve, an undertaking which,
in connection with railway terminals and extensive harbor Improvements, will give to tlie province an
asset ol, great value not to be reckoned In dollars and cents. The various royal commissions—labor, agriculture, better terms, etc., which
are undertaking most Important investigations, have been provided for
to the extent ol $150,000 and the result of their labors will, I have not
the slightest doubt, be ol Incalculable benefit to the people ol British
Columbia in the, Mure. The vote of
$170,000 for foresl protection, which
is supplemented hy an equal levy on
timber holders, will he well spent In
ranserving one ol the greatest ol natural assets. There Is an additional
vote of $77,000 lor   salaries and, var-

BZ SHOT DOWN ON PUB-"
MC STREET.
City of Mexico, Feb. 23.—Francisco
I. Madero and Jose Pino Suarcz, deposed president and vice-president respectively of thc Mexican republic,
were shot and instantly killed today
when an attempt was made to rescue
them from an auto that was transferring them to the penitentiary.
News of the death of Madero and
Ruarez was confirmed by President
Huerta.
Previously it had been announced
that the transfer from the National
Palace to the penitentiary was successful. Two of the party that attacked the auto were killed in the
exchange of shots.
A vague attempt to fasten thc
blame on the guard has been made
by the new government, but it is received with scant courtesy by the
world at large, the belief being that
the cowardly, crime was directly instigated by ihe authorities. The
British press culls on the American
government to intervene;

Ceorge * W. Vundcrbllt invested
$130,000 twenty years ago when he
bought for $2 an acre 68,000 acres of
.mountain forest land, most of it
along thc Transtyvania branch of the
Southern railway. This fall Mr.
Vanderbilt sold the large timber from
the tract for $12 an acre, or $616,-
000. He made a profit or $680,000
on iiis investment, nnd ho ..till has
tho land nml all timber under H
laches.

people who have been suffering for
years with some chronic disease and
many of them have spent large
sums of money seeking a cure. I
know that these people hesitate about/
investing money in medicine because
tliev have despaired of ever getting
well. Thousands have told me tbat
story and many thousands of the
same people have told me afterwards that my treatment had cured
them after doctors and everything
else had failed. I want to prove to
limited number—no matter what
the disease, no matter how long tbey
may have suffered, no matter how
blue and discouraged—that my treatment really and actually does accomplish the wonderful results tbat
hnve been reported."

a few doses. This wonderful treatment creates a fine appetite and
helps the digestive organs to carry
on their functions as they should. It
strengthens the kidneys, too, and

blood as if by magic. That Is why
people    who try it become so      en-
. tliusiastic.
