On Sunday tho CompotiBatJoti Doard
Commission era, Mr. K. s, ll, Winn,
chairman or tin* ConnnlBRioa, Mr. i-ur
kor Wllllnnis mnl Mr, Hugh a Minora,
arrived in tha city rrom Pernio whore
thoy luul I n addressing tho minora
ur tlw C, N, IV Conl i'n, Thoy loft
almost ImmodJatoly for Klmborloy,
mooting the employees of Mn* Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., that
aveotng. On Monday afternoon thoy
met the members uf Mu* (Cast Kootonay Lumber Association in Cranbrook
when they were nble to satisfactorily
elear up a considerable number of
matters which ap pen red to bo worrying the Association, and at thc conclusion of tin* meeting ;i very hearty
vote of thanks was tendered to tho
On Tuesday afternoon the Commission left for Wardner where they addressed tin* employees of tho Crows
Nest Pass Lumber Co., from tiiere
tliey proceeded to Waldo meeting the
employees of tho Koss-Saskatoon,
Baker and Adolph Lumber Companies.
All these meetings were well attended
and great interest shown in the Compensation Act
On Wednesday evening n public
mettfng was held in tho City Hull
presided over by .Mayor Clapp.
There was quite a large attendance
md the close*! ettentlon puid to tlie
speakers whom thr chairman Intro-
tl ted.
Tbe first speiker was -Mr. Parker
Williams who has been in tlte local
house for 13 years,
Mr. William*- began by explaining,
t'ie necessity for revising the Workmen's CompeusaMon Act as under the
old Act the receipt of compensation
by the Injured workmen was retarded
In every way by tiie employer wiio
was able to employ moro expensive
and better lawyers. Under the old I
Act the rest period was two weeks
ft'fter that lie received $10 a week, ii
he was.kill.ed *)[* ■ffilfllW was Ul-YSn liUl-
sum of |1500 out of which Bhe had
to pay any legal costs, if the man was
not killed and it became necessary
to bring action against the employer
the case was dragged out to such
length that owing to trade conditions
particularly In B ,C, the workman's
witnesses were .-tattered anywhere
from Mexico to Alaska.
In March 1916 the Workman's Compensation  Acl   was paaaed  witb the
idea of making the Industry carry the
injured workman and provide for thc
support  of  widow  ;.iiil children:
only trouble was to find n fair
agreeable way between workmen
employer.    The   Board  usually
ad impr
■u> thc
\hi£ th
from 40 to iiu c
Already there it
of feeling between wor!
Undor the new conriil
man Is assured of rece
medical care in tin -vent nf Injury
and his widow iyid children will be
cared for if he Is killed, aluo tlie employer is obliged to have his premises
nnd machinery kcpl in such order as
10 minimize the danger ol accidents
Mr. Gilmour said "Mr Chairman
and gentlemen I do nol propose Lo
take very much of your iim*' as Mi
Williams has full) explained the dit-
Terence between the old acl and III.
new net 1 would llkt to poinl oui
tn the workmen here tonight that if
the workmen rei elved an Injury it ts
necessary that ii  should  iported
to the employer in writing even if
miiy   a   minor   injury
We have luul ease- romc befort the
Hoard where a man Ito I roi b ed a
■llghl Injury, lie said nothing al all
to tbe employer and perhaps after
five or >iv days he wm obliged to
stop away for six week- and when
Hie question of tho compensation
cann* before thc employer be stated
he did not know nnythlng aboul ;i and
It lead blm to believe thnl the Injury
was   r 'veil   :il   home
Under the Aet if the workman Is
Injured it Is hte duty to report to us
filling In all tiuj questions on the
form.   If there are any questions ho
Is unable to  fill   in  It I:   the duty or
Ills doctor to fill In tlio form without
We have made a rule that employers are not to see the workmen's report nor the workmen the employer's
report nnd neither shull see tho doe-
tor's report. If the workmen see anything nt the mill, machine shop, or
factory thnt Is dangerous, ho should
drop un a letter nnd we will havo our
Inspector look Into It.
Another suggestion Ir to have an
Accident Prevention Committee and
have the Committee meet the employers once In two weeks or month .nui
discuss nnythlng In regard to the prevention of accident*;.
With reference to men being Injured
on Sunday the Bonrd oon a Id era thc
workman Is working heenuic the mn
wishes It and It does not mat
ter wli.it  tho day Is, whether  1st or
Wiih    regard to   camp, nsntlon  lo
widows we con paj a widow |20 per
i month and I'ur eaeh of four children
■ }6 por month which make:; a total ol
' $'10.
in considering a ease brought bo-
i fore us tlte widow uud (wo children
received $30 and h«*r grocorj bill for
a month ai mlad to till leaving nothing for oilier necessities.
nn thinking tbe matter over wo
came io Hie conclusion Hint this
should  bo  remedied.
Under llie Acl a white man's widow*
receives Hie same ns Hie widow of n
Chinaman, Hindoo or Japanese who
can live iu their own country for con.
siderably less, ll is suggested that
we should tax the industry the same
for killing a Chinaman as for killing
a white man.
Kor example, we place in reserve
say ¥4600 for killing a Chinaman and
the same for a white man: tills means
$0,000 ill  reserve, we should  like tlie
authority to settle with the Chinaman's wife for say $1,000 and use the
difference between that and $4,BO0 for
distribution amongst the white man's
Mr. Winn was the next speaker and
Mr. Chairman and gentlemen:
Speaking as to organization, our organizer was the one who started tbe
Workmen's Compensation Hoard in
Ontario. Nova Scotia, Washington, nnil
Oregon; we therefore think we liave
one with uh Who has had tbe necessary experience to storl the work
along the right lines. As there are no
medical men on the Hoard and we
must refer matters to a medical man
we have selected a contract man and
one whom we believe lias the necessary qualifications; I refer to Dr. tl.
A. B. Hall,
Mr. Winn pointed out the necessity
of niM-fyin;; the . ii>:!r. f in writinr.
tuiiu--.dnu:l'-' th. -i :;:t:utJiae'i!'.en? nut
emphasized the fact that all reports
sent to the Board were absolutely confidential. He stated that when a report was received of a dangerous
place In mill or factory a memorandum was sent to the Inspector asking
him to pay particular attention to
such places, The Inspector has no
knowledge of the report received and
in   ill- course of his examination  the
information \- given him and be has
authority   on   the   suol   to   inver   thai
particular condition
Sometimes nn employer or workman will feel thnl the ease has not
ii.en sufficiently looked into and If
they will write the Hoard about tbe
matter we Immediately go Into the
ease ngain bo far as we an concerned B case i- never closed.
The question of n workman work-
mi; ror a relative was dls* ussed and
Mr Winn stated that a workman
working for a relative is able to claim
com pen satlon h the employer applies
to bring hi- relative under the Act;
If the employer dons nol so apply until the accident happen*- the relative
Is unable to claim compensation
One of H" que itton ■ n ked ot thc
employers Is "Are anv members of the
i mill)   ns  defined bj   section  .'  em
ployed by yen' If RO glVC name of
, IH ||   member  of the  family," if Ibis |
la not filled in ti"' Hoard is unable to
pa; compen atlon if ho fills in his
own name ns being Included lu the
pn)< roll he enn claim compensation,
The speaker stated thai Uio Hoard
are paying four to five times more
i ompcnsatlon under tho pros* nl \c1
than under the old system.
Mr Winn then snld if nny one eared
to question him ho would lie happy to
answer Many questions wore asked
to which Mr Winn gave satisfactory

The Editor, Cruiibrok HornM-
Sir. Ma.- ; he permitted through
your columns to voice a protest, which
I feel sur.1 many of my fellow citizen.;
will join .ii, (trains!, to my mind, the
wanton i1*';t; u tion of swallows' hums
ou a prominent building of t.ii» town
Many of ns have witnessed during tie-
past few weeks the laborious, almost
Imperceptible building up of these
llttle plastered homes by our feathered
visitors, and it is difficult to imagine
tlie state of mind of tlie one who would
i ruthlessly order the tearing down of
hffl$ge* home*! so laboriously and Ingeniously built up. Surely, to the
average bird-lover, and most of ns
but the dullest are Hint, a llttle wire-
netting stretched over from the roof
to keep the birds from starting to
•mild their nests, would seem a trifle
both in copI ami labor compared to the
outraged feelings of hose of us who
have witnessed this ruthless tearing
down. Or If, whoever is lespanalble
for this, to my mind, wantonness, Is
impervious to the charms of these
feathered visitors, may 1 point out an
article written |n the Nelson News of
n few day-; Bg0, an article written on
the same subject by Professor Lakes,
of Nelson, wherein he deplored similar
action on Mialf of thoughtless citizens of liis own town In this respect,
and pointing out that if they were
lacking In the ordinary feeling of hospitality to nnr little feathered guests
thai the average man entertains, they
hould stay tlieir hand on the matter
nl hyg ne alone, as what little barm
thev do iu rearing their young, and
they   musl   rear   them   somewhere,   is
many times off-set by the good they
(io in killing fifes and insects, thereby making life more tolerable for
humans al this time of the year.
Should the perpetrator In this present
cose belong to this Intter clnss 1 would
i ommond this article by Professor
lakes to his careful attention, and
a casual digestion of same may bring
home to his mind that, apart from tlie
greal injury done to tiie birds nnd
iheir many lovers in this community,
his action, if generally adopted, would
bring about a slate of affairs almost
intolerable in this hoi season of the

The following Item Is taken from
the Thompson Falls Enterprise and
will, no doubt, he of interest to many
friends of the inventor in this district.
Mrs. Otto Wisner, who come to
Thompson Fulls about a year ago to
reside, from Cranhrook, P, C, states
this week thnt she received a patent
on a recent invention, it hem and
luck guage. June '22. Mrs. Wlsner
Is a seamstress of ability and hos been
working to perfect her Invention for
more tlum a year, applying for a pat-
enl a few weeks ago.
This invention Ir said by authorities
to lie very valuable, and should be
sold by tlie inventor for a sum around
the $2.1,00n,.mi mark. The successful
inventor is now receiving congrntii-

Toronto, July 6.—-Canada's Food
Controller, Hon. w. .1. Hanna, has already completed much of the organization of his department to deal with
fixing io ., prlci   and lb provide Ir.rBa
; quantities of food for export to Creat
Britain and her Allies Mr. Hanna
recently reviewed Hn* work that already   has   been   done   uud   outlined
! briefly some of Hie things he expects io shortly finish; pointing nut
' the duty that is im] used upon Canada,
which will re»piire the co-operation
of every man, woman and child if It
is to be fairly met.
He Intimated that it was his inteu-
j tion to give the press from time to
time information as to just how desperate were Hie needs of tlle Allies,
; and what is', being done to meet them,
: bcause he is satisfied thnt when the
1 people realize what the situation real- !
ly is, they will co-operate In an endeavor to solve It.
People flusl ltenli/c.
"The situation is desperate," he declared. "It is desperate in this sensp,
that it wlll have a terrible meaning
to us and (ireat Britain and her Allies
if tbis situation is not met. It is
equally important thjit tlie people
should know- the fncts as they am before It is loo Inte to meet them. If
thoy don't know the facts, who wlll
be to blame if the people of the Allies
should go hungry, and if the sons of
Canada and the United States should
have to retire into defeat because
Canada did not send tliem bread?"
he asked.
"Tliat is the real position, nnd it is
not overstating It. Let the facts be
known and the people will respond.
'"The reasons for the appointment
of Fooil Controllers in Canndn and the
United States are identically the same
aa led to the appointments iu Crept
Britain cud Prance, and let me add.
ihey are just as urgent. In short,
with Russia, the greatest wheat producing country in tlie world Houman-
ia and Bulgaria cut off from the markets of Creat Rritain. France, Bel-
glum and Italy, and with the millions
of men In those countries engaged In
the war work: Cirpnt "Britain and her
Allies, always importers even In normal times, must rely on Canada and
tlie United States to be fed. and the
supply in Canada nnd the I'nited
States threatens to be altoKether unequal to tin* dtnand.
Shortage of Wheal.
" The ficures in wheat alone as they
are estlnntrd ."-d-.'* <*how thnt the
total requirements for the Allies and
neutrals of Kurope for the year will
be 1,105,000,000 bushel*. The production of Kurope for tills period Is
estimated as -Uf.,000.OOP bushels. We
uiual export from Canada and tlie
United States to meet this shortage
If.n.OOn.OOo bushels,'*
It would not be difficult fi Canada
and tlie United States to meet the demands for -ifio.non.oon bushels if the
erop they had in 1015 was duplicated.
The reason for the situation becoming
so acute Is that the 1014 crop was a
record up to that time. The crop of
1flr. was even larger, and then the
crop of 1910 was so small that there
wns an Immediate shortage.
The estimate of wheat that Canada aud the United States could export,
Mr. Hanna said, was based on consumption, and this was three hundred
million bushels as against 4fiO.000.000
bushels which must be made up. If
the crops of Tndia and Australia could
reach Creat Britain daily there would
be no real difficulty. However, bemuse of the great distance, these
supplies are unsatisfactory.
Mean- of Meeihnr Difficulty
Another element whicli has to be
considered ts that tbere is a further
loss of food by quantities belnc sunk
at sea, 'Whatever amount Is sunk
must he made up to cover the sbortaRc
ot 1fiO.OOa.000 bushels. There Is room
to make up a great part of the short*
nge in wheat or othar goods by
means tn which everyone can contribute. These include. Mr. Hanna
"The elimination of waste in hotels.
restaurants, public places and In the
homes of Canada would work nn enormous paving.
"Every man. woman and chili' in
Canada and In the United States must
substitute other foods to save nt least
one-third to two-fifths of the wheat
which they now consume.
"Wo, living here In Canada, have
begun to feel the pinch the war hns
brought to Europe,''
Mr. Hannn read tr;n letters, one
from Mr. \. J Hodgson of Montreal,
and another from Sir Cenrg'* Bury,
vice-president of the C. I'. R.
Sir Qeorge Bury recently returned
from Russia, and since his return he
says he has been giving considerable
time to lhe food question, being struek
hy the lavlshness of waste of food in
Canada compared with Kuropean bei
llKcrenl countries, The revolution In
Russia, be says, was brought about
by the food shortage: when lie wn*
there, then* were four montlOBfl days
n week, and the people were living on
black   bread,   cabbage   noup   anil  tn
occasional piece of fish.
C. P* K. Economy
| Sir George states that some time
ago it was decided by the C, P. R. not
to  purchase or  serve  veal,  lamb or
1 young  chickens.    The  compank   has
, also discontinued to use what is
known as the individual package be-
, cause the packing is extravagant these
. times.   The use of darker bread in
; Canuda     was    also    favored  hy  Sir
! tJeorge.
i Knowing that there Is such a great
waste, Hon. Mr. Hanna weal on, it
provides a menns by whicli the ex-
, port demands can be met.
t "Onr paramount duty is to save
food for export.   If we can do this and
< save money too, so much the bettor.
If not, we must save food iu any case,
nnd as far as possible reduce the cost,
and it la with the hope that we can
do both that food controllers have
been appointed In both the United
States and Canada."

iWc publish thc following letter
through the kindness of Mr. J, p.
Somewhere In France, June 1,1917—
Dear Mr, Smith.—I have to thank you
for your very Interesting letter; I am
not sure If I  wrote you In  reply or
not as my memory is not as good as
It was on account. I suppose, of tlie
lack nf sleep and other things.    At
present I am back resting for a few
days after being in the line nver a
montii.   1 am very glad to get out as
I was feeling pretty tough as I had
just gone S days tit tbe trenches and
got  shook  up  by   a   high  explosive
shell but am feeling O. K. now.   I am
staying at a most beautiful place and
the trees are in full leaf and there are
lots of flowering shrubs and It ls verjuice to he nble to walk around after
being in the trenches where Fritz is
always on band to snipe "you ir you
stick your head up.   I muRt tell you
that we have the kilt and I find It
much    more    comfortable    than    I
thought, though It Is a good deal more
bother to put on than pants.   It Is the
McKenzie   tartan   and   the   regiment
looks very nice on parade though we
had quite n time in getting them fitted right as most of us never had them
on before.   I expect we wlll go back
to the trinches with tbem.    I npver
figured   fighting   In   a   kilt   but  they
seem  to do as good  work or better
than the men In trousers according
to history.   I am enclosing a Herman
notice I picked up which may inteiest
you.    You  will  no  doubt bave  read
all  about  the great  air  raid on  the
sea coast of England.    It is ton bad
so  many  women   and  children   wcre
killed but the Huns *eem to stop at
no kind of warfare; tbey were using
poison gas shells on  ns but happily
without   very  much   success.    I   had
quite  a   surprise   yesterday   when   I
met Arden who used to be at Mcyie;
he is In th" regiment and is going as
a  sniper.    Some time ago  1   got a
bundle of papers from you ncludlnjr
the Cranbrook Herald of March 21st
but none since; I think that perhaps
tliey will not bring large papers up
the line :.s none of tbe boys ;-eeri to
get many papers bul I would he very-
glad if ycu would ,*end  ne tbe Cranbrook   paper and   plence fold  It up
small, and it may comi   through.    I
have  got  sonic  fl"rman   bullets  nnd
bits of shell etc. I   .ill try and send
yon by flrct chance but It Is nnt easy
to send stuff as there Is no P. O. nnd
ynu have to have it passed by an officer before sending.    I ree the U. S.
arc starting to move at last so 1 hope
we  soon    shall   ree    the  Stars  and
Stripes  over   here.     It   i .ay   interest
yon to know that we have glow w**im>
over  here mid   I   have  found  ,*nmp
wlille  digging  in   the  trenche*-:     Von j
will   know   far  more  about  the  war
than I can tell ynu even If permitted
but  1  must say that we are nil In
pood   spirits   and   things  are  golnc
well   with   us.     I   saw   two  (ierman
planes  brought down  the other day I
lu nn enrlal fight; a great sight.  After
the war It will Iw worth any man's!
while thnt can. to come and sec wiiere |
and  bow our brave men  fought  and i
won nnd to see what war can do to a *
I passed by a village where at one
time the Germans launched a gas
cloud attack but the wind suddenly
chnnged end blew back Into the town ,
killing nll tbe Inhabitants and n lot
of Germans who were engaged In com- i
milting alt kinds of atrocities on thej
women and children etc. and then the
place was taken by the French who
kept It ns fl was but tlie Germans blew |
it alt up with their artillery so there'
Is nothing much but ruins, still I hear
the skeleton* are left tn bear evidence
against tliem hut I cannot vouch for

Tho whole country seems to hnve
gone motor crazy, only a short time
ago it was tho realty and oil craze.
In Cranbrook alum* enough money
has lieen spent on tho purchase of
motor ears to have purchased many
machine guns; tlie monthly expenditure on gasoline and repairs would
collectively well supply many guns
wltli ammunition; in addition an army
of skilled labor is utilized for the manufacture <>f motors instead of guns
and—let ns fare the truth; the vastly
greater proportion of those care arc
used for pleasure riding- and we arc
at war, fighting a deadly octopus endeavoring lo strangle democracy, witli
the issue still far from being decided.
Who would  think  it?
Tlu* craze might be chocked by the
Federal Govornmeni levying a special
tux on pleasure motors; this would
moan a handsome contribution to thn
war fund and should be the first stnr
towards conscription of wealth.

Tiiere arc strong Indications that
money is going to tighten up in Canada. Wltli Uie United States In the
war they will have tlieir own financial
problems to solve ami it Is unlikely
any surplus funds for loaning to Canada will be available for some time to
eome consequently we will have to
paddle our own canoe. The cosl of
keeping up uur army is close un two
million dollars per duy so the problem facing the Finance Minister will
shortly put his courage to the supreme
test to find the ways and moans, it Is
likely that our borrowing powers with

Tlien are many othor ways by wit Id
dollurs In millions can be saved by
tin- exercise of a little forethought.
Tlie practise of economy in the use
of paper, even economy in tiie use of
postage slumps, not by sending fewer
letters but by llie exercise of cure fn
tbo number of stamps used- w letter
calling tor 5 cents postage, by using a
■1 ond a 2 instead of !i one cent stamps.
This suggestion might seem foolish at
first but In reality It would mean n
grent saving to the Government. Two

paper ns a one two cent stamp ami
twice us much gum, twice as much
time for printing and gumming, twice
| us much ink tor printing, twice ns

tlon of which was to delay sending aid
to our men at the fronl so urgently
The recourse to a  referendum  recalls a similar trick called plebiscite.
Laurier's broken pledges to carry out
his promise to the prohibitionists is
not quite forgotten.   At an enormous
expense and a greal deal of labor
privilege was granted.   The Plebis
wus given only in order to evade
sponsibillty upon a difficult quosl
On September litb, 1804, Hoi
fred Laurier, Liberal opposition
er, said to a deputation of prohibitionists, that he would pledge his honor
as a man us soon as the Liberals came
to power at Ottawa they would take a
plebiscite uver all the Dominion. Dy
that declaration tbe party would
stand nnd tlie will of the people would
bo carried out, were it to cost power
tor   ever  tu  the   Liberal   party
On September 29th, 1SHS. the Laurier Government did take a plebiscite
or referendum on prohibition. Evory
province, even British Columbia, except Quebec gave majorities In favor
of prohibition. Quebec gave an adverse majority uf 94,032; outside of
Quebec tbere was n majority for prohibition of 107.JMS. The net majority
throughout tlie whole Dominion was
thus; 18,910. Yet the Laurier Government, did not enact prohibition despite tbe pledge of 1894. The reason
given was that tbe majority against
was too great In Quebec!    Tlie Globe
humorously, at the time, remarking
that the votes from Quebec were slill
coming in—it being well known in
many constituencies hundreds of ballots were counted more than the number of nnmes on the voters list. The
question may he asked today if every
province In Canada, except Quebec,
voted "yes" on it referendum for conscription and Quebec gave the em-
phntic "no" would Sir Wilfred Laurier's pledge of yesterday to support
coscription be more valuable than his
pledge of 1894 to support prohibition?
The fact remains that the reference
to a referendum can deceive only t In-
feeble minded. It is a fraud with
only one design. Only Ibc most unprincipled politician would adopt it.
The need for more men at tin* front
is urgent. Months *ould im»3 awaiting the decision of Qiir-fioc as It it
were nol well known what tliat decision would be.
