AL O.flO Friday oven inn lust Hit'
annual mooting ol the Retail Mor-
elnmis' Association uf Cranbrook
got un dor wny when a largo representation of thai organization took their
places around the banquet tublo
Mpremi in the mooting room of tho
Y.M.C.A. The dinner, for which Mr.
Alex Hurry wns responsible, wns
thoroughly enjoyed, many present
being of the opinion thut ihe association might profit hy gntherinK
around the festive boards more frequently than once u year.
After justice was done the excellent menu provided, the business of
the annual meeting was proceeded
with, Mr. F. Scott, president of the
association, being in the chair. Mr.
F. T, Cooper, who wan the guest
of Hie association was asked to address the meeting with respect to a
matter of mutual interest to them
and the Hod and Gun Club, of which
he is the president.
The speaker, on behalf of the Rod
and Gun Club, thanked his hosts for
the courtesy extended, and proceeded
at once with a concise resume of the
work of the association with respect
to the operation of the local fisl;
hatchery and the outlook regarding
tho future in connectioa therewith.
Dealing particularly with the matter of financing of its future ojiera^
tions, the speaker showed how that
the club possessed a nice bonk balance when the hatchery operations
were started, but that now this had
been reduced to a negative quantity.
Much work had been done, and their
efforts had met with success even
beyond their expectations. He
plained that they were dependent
entirely upon membership fees and
upon what support they got from
the government With only these
.sources to rely upon, nnd with the
present fee of $1.00, it was seen that
it would he impossible to carry on
without a deficit, and that it was
with this possibility in mind that he
was appearing before the merchants,
whom he thought were interested, to
ask for a larger measure of support
than might ordinarily accrue from
them through the ordinary channels
of the regular membership fee.
In nppenling to them for support,
the speaker explained that the local
hatchery was the best proposition for
the propagation of cut-throat trout
in the Dominion, Should they have
to give up the control and the management, the government, he knew,
Would take it up. This would be disadvantageous locally) in so far that
under Mich ciretiinstiinees tho local
club would not have the say with re-
Kind to the disposition of the fish.
At present for the support they not
from   the   iroverument   an   njrreeahle
arrangement had been reached with
roped tn the fish. Peeling that the
work of the club was one that should
appeal to everybody in the eotnimn.i-
ty, it was their desire lo try to enlist
the support of a large number, rather
than ask a few to shoulder the burden of the whole financing. They
had, therefore, decided to make the
appeal fur members in the ordinary
way, but to leave it to them n* to
how much they should give, with the
minimum being pledged $1.00 per
member. The objective which they
bad placed before them was $1500,

II. S. Haynes, who was a delegate
from the local Baptist Church to the
recent Western Canada convention
held "t. Edmonton, gave an Interesting resume of the big gathering at the
morning service at the local church
on Sunday last.
The convention was described on
all sides, be said, as the best convention they had held, and this was
due, he considered, to the true prayerful Christian spirit in which the deliberations of the convention were
conducted, particularly the controversial matters which were Introduced.
Pdrttculflrly inspiring were the addresses made to the delegates hy Dr.
John McNeil. One, on the reasons
for Christian service, was briefly
synopslzed by Mr. Haynes, as being
really outstanding. B. C. last
year contributed over $28,000 to the
western Canada missionary budget,
of which nearly $22,000 was spent
for work in the province. Dr. Or-
chnrd, secretary for the Western
Canada Baptist Union, superintendent of missions, and also editor of
the Western Baptist, was present,
and delivered some interesting reports on the progress of the work in
the west. The personal experiences
which Dr. Orchard related gave an
interesting insight into the vital
touch that is being maintained with
tho people in the outlying districts.
Rev. W. E. Matthews, of Winnipeg,
was another speaker, who told of the
devotion of some of the laborers in
the rural places.
Foreign missionary work, particularly in India, was touched on at the
convention hy Rev. H. E. Stillwell,
foreign missionary secretary, and
Miss Laura Allyn and her sister, Dr.
Jessie Allyn. Both have seen much
service in mission work in India, and
their words wore both an encouragement and a challenge to further effort on behalf ofethat big country.
Mr. Haynes told of his introduction to Dr. Bovington, the new principal of Brandon College, who, it
trunspired, was a student at Woodstock, when Rev. W. T. Tnpscott,
now pastor here, was in the ministry
there. Dr. Bovington comes from
Cleveland, and stated he had found
an exceedingly encouraging situation
at Brandon College, where he was
getting the whole-hearted support of
the faculty, and he hoped he would
receive the same from the Baptist
people of Western Canada.
Delegates and others, over two hundred in all, those particularly interested in young people's work, were
entertained nt a supper, and plans
for nn intensive campaign were tentatively made at thnt time, for the
spring months, culminating at Faster time. Mr. Haynes intends to report more fully on this aspect of
things to the Sunday School teachers.
It was decided, he said, to only
bold a Western Canada convention
every three years, and some pastoral
qualifications were passed upon which
it was felt would tend to keep the
ministry of the church at a high
scholarly and spiritual standing.
A s|K'cinl effort is to be made on
behalf of Brandon College throughout the west, to tnke full advantage
of a cumulative bequest, that is dependent upon the churches raising
an equivalent amount, The subject
will he broached nt a business meeting of the local church, and it is
possible something may be done here
towards (hat end. Mr. Haynes also
touched on some of the miscellaneous
matters dealt with by the convention,
and his report on the proceedings
was spoken of ns being exceedingly

Without a single liability, the congregation of Knox Church, Cranbrook, has emerged from the critical
period of 1025. At the annual meeting held last Friday evening, January
2!Hh, reports were heard from the
different organizations all of which
bowed flourishing conditions. Add-
td to this prosperous outlook is an
ardent and enthusiastic spirit which
animates every member of the congregation. This is especially noticeable along  the   lines   of   Young
iple's work, including the Sunday
School.    A committee was appointed

in the efforts of the above committee.
The initial meeting will be held on
Monday, Ferbuary 15th, nt 8 o'clock

The Ladies' Aid. the Missionary
Society, the Marion Oliver Mission
Band, the C.G.I.T., the newly organized Troll Rancors, and the Boy
Scouts are all to he commended for
the splendid results shown by their
official reports. The Words "without a liability" from the church
Ireasurer were heartily applauded.

loss of members due to the "union"
question, but the additional new
members added exceeded the number
lost by the upheaval of 1025.

for His care and guidance, and look
out upon the future with bright hopes
and a simple trust to Him who is the

With twenty rinks entered, the
Selkirk 1926 District Bonspiel got
away to a good start on Wednesday
noon when the four competitions
were started. Besides ten Cranbrook
rinks there were ten visiting rinks
competing. Good weather and ice
conditions prevailed at the start but
by night time it began to soften and
by Thursday morning the five rinks
were covered with sheets of water,
making the play extremely unsatisfactory, the knock out gome being
the only one practiceable. By noon
on Thursday most of the competitions
were out to the eights but at lhat
time it was questionable how
long the bonspiel would proceed ns
nditions    were    becoming    much
use ull thi tins). By noon the following rinks were up to the eights in
the   various  competitions:
Cameron Cup —Wilson, I.indhurg,
M unlock und Crerar.
Kimberley Cup —Spenco, James,
Barber, MePhee, Crerar and Wilson.
Cosmopolitan Cup —Barber, llal-
crowe, Doran, Douglas and Dunker-
Grand Challenge—Cameron, I.indhurg, Spence, MePhee, Burton, Crerar.
Names of Rinks entered —Lind-
burg, Murdock nnd Wilson, Bull River; Dunkerlcy from Chapman; Attree, Fort Steele; Johnson, James,
Crerar and O'Neill of Kimberley;
Hutchinson, Lumberton; Burber, Burton, Cameron, Doran, Halcrowe, MePhee, MacPherson, Spence, Ward and
Wilson, of Cranbrook.
Sutherland was entered in error
from Kimberley, all games in his
name going by default. At 7 p.m.,
Thursday, in the fours were: Cum-
eron, in the Grand Challenge; Doug,
lus, in the Cosmopolitan, and Crerar
in the Kimberley. At that time MePhee, Cameron, Crerar and l.indburg
were still up in three competitions.

the world. There are several
mineral claims in the district around
For fineness of scenery n person
would travel far before they would
find n district that surpasses the
Cranbrook distrcit. Its lakes, its
snow-cupped bills and rippling
streams all go together to make the
country one of the beauty spots in
Ihe province.
Lumberton is a small town near
Cranbrook, it is n lumbering town.
There is one large mountain lying
to the east of it. The spruce trees
they mill are of the very best grade.
Another beauty spot near Cranbrook is St. Mary's Lake nnd River,
noted for their fishing and beautiful
scenery. This also is a favorite spot
for campers.
One of Cranbrook's favorite beauty spots is the old Mounted Police
Fort, called Fort Steele. H is situated on a beautiful bank overlooking
the Kootenay River. The inhabitants
of Fort Steele are old timers of the
[.strict, who have retired. The district around Steele is a mining district.
The sunsets of Cranbrook district
I beautiful, especially when the
snow is on them. The color of the
snow and sun make a beautiful tint.
In summer the mountains have n
greener shade, making the sunset a
paler pink.
The animals around this city are
mostly fur-bearing animals, such as
bear, beaver, mountnin-goat nnd
muskrat. Different clubs, such ns the
Rod and Gun Club, huve put fish in
the streams und lakes, making good
fishing in them for the men.
The animals, such os deer, make
good hunting. The bunting of this
district is not excelled anywhere else.
The mountains in summer are very
green, covered with pine, fir and
spruce trees. The climate is temperate and healthy. In winter the
mountains are snow-clad for most of
the season.    We do not get severe
Id in the winter, it is of a temperate  and healthy  climate.
There are a great many sports in
summer. On the lakes that I have
mentioned we c;o boating, usually in
rowboat. We also go swimming.
There are some very good swimmers
in the district. Their skill has often
become useful in saving lives. The
men and boys are more fond of fishing. Another of our sports is hiking,
which we usually do on Saturdays.
The sports of winter are very extensive. There is ski-intr, which
some people enjoy. Skating is the
port that everybody takes an interest in. The children take an interest
in sleigh-rid ing on  tho hills.
I have many reasons for liking
Cranbrook. Its healthy and temperate climate make it pleasant in
summer and winter. Also, the great
interest people of Cranbrook take in
the children. They will give anything
if they think the children will benefit by it. They have had a playground built—there is none to compare with it in the East Kootenay.
I like the mountains which we
have here. The splendour of the
scenery also makes it far prettier
beautiful than any other place
in the interior of British Columbia,
Written by Jessie South, aged 11
Cranbrook is the natural centre
of Eastern-British Columbia, It
a divisional point for the C.l'.H. and
railways from this point radiate in
all directions. It is situated between
the Rockies and the Selkirks.
The mountains of Cranbrook district are just Wonderful. Baker
Mountain is right close to Cranbrook,
north and east are the Rockies, and
to the west nre the Selkirks, Near
Horseshoe Lake the mountains hnve a
dark streak running through them.
In the winter time the Rockies look
so magnificent covered with snow.
The whole district is full of beautiful hills and mountains.
There are also many beautiful
lakes in the district. Wasa Lake
is very beautiful in the summertime
for swimming. Greenbny is n bay
on the northern end of Moyie Lake,
where they also go swimming. In
winter, on the southern end of Moyie

Cranbrook is located in one of the
most beautiful parts of British Columbia, the East Kootenay district.
. It Is in a valley between the Selkirks and the Rocky Mountain
ranges. The mountains are not
overhanging but make a beautiful
picture at all times of the day and

of the Purcell mountains, distinguished by their round tops.
Good roads lead out in ull directions to beautiful natural places,
The Banff-Windermere highway,

have mountains, lake nnd woodland
The trees around are mostly evergreen, pines, firs, tamnracs and

the slope and mountains and the
spruce along the creeks. There are

In concluding after thinking of the
mountains, trees, rivers and lakes
hal surround Cranbrook we cannot
find many pluces better provided
for by nature than Cranbrook.
Written by Dorothy Brown, aged
13 years,
Cranbrook is situated on the south
eastern coiner of the Kootenay district. It has a very good location
as the mountains are not right by
it. There is a stretch of prairie to
the north east of the city.
The Rocky Mountains and the Selkirks entirely surround Cranbrook.
They are very pretty and look es-
pecially beautiful now with their
covering of snow. The highest
peak in the Rockies visible from
Cranbrook is Mount Fisher, which
ts near Fort Steele. Mount Baker,
which lies to the east of the city can
be secji for miles around.
There are many lakes and
streams nenr Cranbrook. Some are
within walking distance and others
within easy motoring distance. Some
of the lakes arc Moyie Lake, Smith,
Premier, Nurse Shoe and St, Mary's
Lake. The Rod and Gun Club which
was formed about ten yeurs ago, has
put fish in the lakes und streams
and brought different ganve birds
into the district.
Another beauty of the Cranbrook
district is the sunrise und sunsets.
They are truly magnificent. Their
beauty compares very favorably with
all the noted places in the world. A
mountain covered with snow, and the
sun, make very beautiful colorings.
In the summer time pleasures are
numerous. There are many beautiful spots where picnics can be held.
At Green Boy there is an excellent
beach and many bathers gather there
on hot days. Muny people have
boats and go boating on the lakes.
Cranbrook has a number of
beautiful trees around it. The
pines and firs nre plentiful. The
trees were more plentiful formerly
but lumbermen have cut out a great
many. In the winter the snow-laden
trees make u very pretty sight.
Our winters are usually cold. The

The following paragraph which h
"going the round" may prove of interest to most of the local ear owners.
An automobile owner installed ti
new-fangled carburetor thai was
guaranteed to save 20 per cent in
gas. Then he put in special spark
[dugs that were guaranteed to save
another 20 per cent of the precious
fluid, and an intake heater to save
still another 20 per cent. Nexl lie
put in a patented rear axle—to save
another 20 per cent—retired with a
set of tires guaranteed to save 20
per cent; re-filled his crank case with
oil to increase his mileage 20 per
cent. Now, with a fuel economy of
120 per cent, the owner has to stop
every hundred miles and bail out
the gas tank to keep it from flowing
over. With the price of Fords still
going down, everybody can afford a
ear at that rate.

Hob pushed Jane from him in distaste and anger, and, turning, strode
inward his cab. The slight pain of
her twisted ankle forgotten, she fol-
lowed, insistent; plying him with
questions that he ignored; with protestations nf love at whirl, he laughed.
A curt summons from the observation platform recalled her. She
went, reluctantly; there was nothing
else for her to do, since Bob had

up the girl, while Jane's eyes, glinty
and cold, remained glued to the face

words that expressed the sum and

What use, what diirerence, indeed?
After all his sturdy rotilling and re-

Ever since the ice appeared on
Moyie Lake there has been great
boasting as to various people's skating and hockey capabilities. The
combinations were seen Sunday afternoon, when the married men of
Moyie played the single men. Client
enthusiasm wus in evidence during
the week, and each night what wns
to be dune to the other side was!
heard from everywhere. Whether
by means of their greater skill or I
because of the proverbial highness of!
the Benedicts, the married men i
scored a great victory. The teams
lined up as follows: married men—J
goal, A. G. Monkhouse; defence, G.
McKay nnd J. W. McLean; forwards, I
Roy Burch, (Mrs.) McLean, Frank
Conrad; subs., Win. Parker and M.
St. Denis. Single men—G. Burch,
Joe Braiden, Nap Gosslin, Jack Braiden, l-ewis Desaulniers, J. Billings.
The game was fast and furious. The
married men, being deficient in numbers, had the assistance of Mrs. J.
W. McLean, who was by no means
the weakest member of the team.
Roy Burch was responsible for the
three goals scored by the married
side, while Billings scored the one
notch for the single men. Edgar
Montpeilier was (piitc effective in
goal. Billings' goal for the single
men was quite a good one, being the
result of some clever passing and
a good shot to finish up with. Although the score does not indicate it,
the sides were really very evenly
matched, Roy's goals being of the
opportunity character, but doing him
great credit.   McKay in defence wus
gaged at carpenter work in the town.

We wonder if this federal legislator bus ever travelled further than
Toronto or Ottawa in his life. And
yet this is the type of legislator who
makes or hinders our national legislation. Pure parochialism.
• • • •
The same representative tells us
that tho Bank of Montreal, Royal
Bunk, the C.P.R., the Montreal Star
and the lory paper "GaKOtte," are
all out to smash the National Railways. His contention is that because this destructive amalgamation
is located in Quebec the management
must therefore be moved to Ontario,

The man-on-the street is wondering1 how many of our readers who
followed last week's curb chnts, took
the trouble to look up the two "Province" articles which were recommended for their careful perusal.
The stuff's as good as ever and if
you want fuel with which to fire
your hopes for National Spirit look
them up and read them. They're
worth the trouble.
* * * *
We have had one or two other
examples during the last week's <lo-
IngB at Ottawa to further convince
us that this Kast vs. West or provincial preponderance iu what should
be national matters is one of tbe
ureal obstacles to our ever bolng
united in the bonds of nationhood.
This unpatriotic trait, is nol confined
to either of the two historic parties,
and is common, in fact inherent, to
the remnants of the fast disintegrating Progressive party, If the latter
had but possessed a personnel of
greater vision, more broad-minded
views and a larger measure of statesmanship within its ranks, and altogether with a capacity capable of
seeing beyond tho range of farmer
interests only, it would have indeed
been a mighty force today in a truly
national direction. As it. exists, it
is nothing more than a four-thous-
und-pcr-session individually interested gang.
•» • • *
One of the contentious points to
be raised in the House at an early
date by one of the Maritime representatives is that of having protection for coal. This policy was one
of the deciding factors locally in the
recent federal campaign, and our
man-on-the-street is wondering how
our coal mining neighbors down Fertile way will like the outlook, especially from the viewpoint they acted
upon after such assiduous instruction by anti-tariff politicians during
the October contest. When the question is decided in the House it will
be the Farmer party who will decide the issue, nnd in their making
it, the man-on-the-street knows perfectly well that the interests of either the coal owner or the miner or
the mass of consumers will never be
• * • *
Tbe farmer has no interests common to the coal producers nor to
the general bearing of the industry
on our national prosperity. Coal
is coal, but better still to him, whent
is wheat, and so he alone will decide
the issue. If protection for conl
should be advocated by the party
he is today helping to keep in power,
then be will vote for it. If that

arranged that the solicitation of

care of by the Secrelary. A sum of
$'u0.00 was donated hy the Sports

to the town as a whole. A donation

-Mr. Crowder, Dominion President,
was entertained at a banquet on
Octobei ilth, and was heard with
much attention by a representative
gathering. The matter of affiliation
with tho Dominion Association was
then suggested and is still under consideration.
On motion of Messrs. Summers
and Sutherland the thanks of the
association were tendered Mr. Mor-
rison for the admirable discharge of
th» duties of presiding officer for the
nasi year.

The report of Treasurer Hinton
was then read and adopted on motion of Wilson and Little. This report showed the financial affairs of
the association to be in a flourishing
condition. The meeting being of the
opinion that the report was a very
creditable one.
Mr. P. Scott in the president's address touched upon the work of the
past year, pointing out the more im
portant features thereof. He referred to the importance of the annual meeting in Vancouver, ut which
the scheme of President Crowder for
a fair trading and price maintenance
policy was launched. He spoke of
the cordial reception which it received at that time, and the subsequent triumphal mission which Mr.
Crowder had since taken across
Canada, more or less culminating
with an unexpectedly favorahle re-
eption in Toronto. This information
be conveyed to the meeting through
the reading of a letter from secrelary Ing, which had just been re-
eived from Mr. Crowder from Ottawa. The letter showed that the
wholesalers, retailers and manufacturers were falling in with the idea,
and that its success seemed assured.
President Scott thanked the members for the opportunity afforded
him of attending the meeting in Van-
uvcr, und said he considered the

At a meeting of the city council
held on Thursday evening last, the
mayor announced the constitution of
the civic committees. The policy of
last year, which called for a consolidation of the former committees into three, is being adhered to, and
each of these committees has to ap-
point  its  own  chairman.
The new committees are as foi
Works (includes streets, sewer:
and water}—Aldermen MacPherson
Cameron, b'ink and Hicks.
Light, Fire and Police—Aldermen
Flowers. Jackson and Fink.
Finance (includes health and relief)—Aldermen Jackson, Flowers
and MacPherson.
After the preliminary business, the
mayor took the opportunity of welcoming tbe new members of the council at the first meeting for general
business, and outlined the work which
was facing the city, including the
constructive program entailed by the
passing of tbe three by-laws recently. He asked for the co-operation
and assistance of the members of the
council, and unless any expenditures
of an unexpected nature had to be
faced, the mayor saw no necessity for
making any increase in the tax rate
tins year.
E, T. Cooper and Dr. G. E. L. Mac-
Kinnon waited on the council in regard to a better water supply for the
fish hatchery. Mr. Cooper usked fot
the loan to the club of about 600
feet of wooden stave pipe, which the
city had on band, having taken it up
from Slaterville. If the results of
their efforts to provide a belter supply to the hatchery by this means
were successful, the Rod and Gun;
Club would undertake to purchase
the pipe.
On motion of Aldermen Fink and
Hicks, W. H. Eassie was instructed
to loan the required pipe to the club,
under an agreement to be drawn up.

Society at Vancouver, whose particular charge is the care of orphan and
destitute children.
On behalf of the Amateur Athletic
Association, a check was received
from G. T. Moir fur $100, being the
balance of the rental due for the
Arena Rink. Expenditures of $203.50
were also shown to have been made
in the way of permanent improvements there. A motion was therefor made by Aldermen MacPherson
and Kink that $43.50, being the balance due on these expenditures be
paid, according to an agreement
made, out of 1025 grants carried
over. The matter of u further grant
for light and water for the rink was
referred to the finance committee,
who will also deal with an application made by the Board of Trade to
have the city council assume the
lighting of the mineral specimen
case outside tbe post office.
An invitation which the mayor had
received from Mayor L. D. Taylor
of Vancouver, to attend a meeting of the Unity and Development
League of Western Canada, some
time last month, was read as a matter of record, and ordered filed.
Alderman MacPherson introduced
for the consideration of the council
a rehearsal of the circumstances and
the understanding on which W. H.
Eassie, former city engineer, had
been named as city foremun about a
year ago, and brought forward a proposal that, in view of the engineering work that the council had to carry out this year, and the nature of
the work Mr. Eassie had been curry
ing on, his status be chnnged
from thut of city foreman to his
former position of city engineer.
This was concurred in by other nlder-
men, and a motion by Aldermen MacPherson und Jackson that Mr. Fa's status be changed to city engineer, and that he be given an increase in salary, his duties still to
include those of a city foreman, was

motion was also made by Alderman
MacPherson of the introduction of
an amendment next meeting to the

discussion during the evening on the
methods to be employed in carrying

Plans for a large and immediate
development of the sheep raising industry In British Columbia are rapidly maturing. A company capitalized at $500,000 has been formed, it
is reported, and a tract of land of
approximately 200,000 acres has been
secured just north of Creston. W.

one of thu principal organizers.
Sheep raising for wool and mutton
has every chance for phenomenal
success there, according to Robert

Todd, Vancouver, who is interested
in woolen industry in old country.
Climatically, the conditions in tbe
Creston urea are particularly good,
he said, and there existed no reason
why British Columbia could not produce mutton and wool of ns good
quality as that of Australia, New
Zealand and the Argentine. He
considered that the newly formed
Victoria company stood every chance
of success. Men of experience in
the industry are included in tbe organization.

were to play their highly successful

Everyone must admit thnt this district of East Kootenay is rising nobly
Lo its political responsibilities. Cranbrook in the south has supplied a
Minister of Public Works, first for
B.C. and then for the Dominion,
Golden in the north has furnished
a Speaker for the local Legislature
ut Victoria, and now lnvermere
the Windermere district in the centre,
follows suit with u Lieutenant-Governor for the Province. We are
modestly confident that when the
matter of a mere Premier requires
attention we shall be ready to give
the subject our favorable consideration. Meanwhile, the appointment
of It. Randolph Bruce of Iinvermcre
to be the Lieutenant-Governor of
British Columbia in succession to
Hon. W. C. Nichol will be regarded
as a great compliment to this district, und Golden extends its hearty
congratulations to the new incumbent of this important office.—Golden Star.

part of the program was taken up
with various games, some of the old
fashioned favorites, such as musical
chairs and the potato race being revived with marked enjoyment,
while others called for prowess in
riding kiddie cars, and in tnking milk
from baby bottles. These created
no end of merriment, nnd in the end
