Tlit outcome of a special session of
tho city council called last Thursday
evening to meet a delegation from the
Urent War Veterans' Association to
discuss the plans of the Veterans for ;
a proposed monument, was a decision f

SCHOOLS REOPENED
THIS WEEK; ALREADY
CROWDED TO CAPACITY
On Tuesday of this week, the opening day of school following the summer vacation, four hundred and ninety-five pupils were enrolled at Uie
Central School, including tbe new
u.mj provl-Swf **>r .W ;nlmtf};/ <i*M9
Fifty-one wero enrol ed iu tiie new
primary room, with tlie result that
more space had to be provided for the
desks than had been anticipated, and
more desks had to be procured in a
hurry. Two of the other divisions in
the Central School have an enrolment
of over fifty, one numbering fiftyfour
pupils. Tho same condition obtains
at thc South Ward School, where out
of an enrolment of ninety some fifty-
one are in the lower room. It was
found necessary to adhere strictly to
the age limit of the children, and none
were admitted to tne primary rooms
undor the age of six yenrs. Miss A.
Woodland, the new principal, is in
charge at the Central School.
At tlie High School there is nn enrolment of about eighty, about the
same as last year, with possibly a
lew more lo como. A commercial teacher lias ben secured iu Miss Helen
D. Nelll. of Knmlops, which completes
thc full staff of nll the schools.
it is altogether likely that nt tne
coming mtlhlclpal elections nt tbe
end of tho year » by-law will be submitted to the ratepayers to authorize
the addition of a four-room wing to
• UlO Central School building- The place
Is now crowded almost to Us capacity,
ami still more Will have to bo provided for at mld-torm. The Itoartl has
received word from the Department
at Victoria to have plans ami specifications prcparod tor the new addition proposed, to be submitted for
their approval. When ihis is done,
put to the ratepayers, for their vote,
ut to ttie ratepayers, for their vote.
it is understood that the governmeni
is willing to help with the cost of the
new addition to the extent of about
thirty per cent.
The regular meeting of tbo School
Board was held last Friday evening.

wasps al meal times. Would you like
some, sugur or Jum? Sure, oh wasps
Who got stung? Just a few. But
Premier is the spot—how about next
year? Kvery fellow Is going, you bet.
liavo you seen some of tho snaps at
tbo "V"? Perhaps you would like a
lew just to show others the 1921
camp, Home of them are really fine.
The most interesting thing now
is to learn who won tho prizes, and
the standing of tents. So here we
aro. Points awarded out of a possible
OB:
Tent 1—51 points.
Tent 2—59 points,
Tent 8—68 points.
Tent 4—53 points.
Tent 6—till points.
Tent C—51 points.
Tent No. 5 was a credit to tbe camp
for the Inside and outside was kept
in splendid order at all times and the
boys proved themselves real campers.
This tent was occupied by F. Bridges,
E, Taylor,  B.  Parker, A. Holdener,
W.  MacDonald,    0.  MacKinnon,    J.
Dalzlel and R. Beech.
Allan Gill wns chosen to the honor of being the most popular boy at
camp, conducting himself as a real
sport under nll conditions.
Mr. WI M. Harris established an
underwater swim of 85 feet—something to try and beat next year.
Now for prize winners.   The points
were given for stunts, baseball, volley ball, canoe racing, swimming, diving, high jump,  broad jump,    relay
race, 100 yards dash, log rolling   and
walking the greasy pole.   The smallest boy was given the same chance
as the largest and after careful record of all events the prizes are to
be given as follows:
lst—Jack Dixon.
2nd—Arthur  QUI.
3rd—Ernie Latlrle,
Special mention Is made of J, Patterson, J. Logan,   Bert Laurie   and
Alex. Nisbet.
The prizes have not been received
as yet but notice will be given when
they come so that winners may be
able to get them.
Trhe last night nf camp will be lohg
remembered by all. Stunts, conundrums, jokes, ctorits. sing-songs, and
watermelon were enjoyed nnd It wns
long after bed time before the boys
rolled in.
Tlie camp was a new experience
for many of the boys and next year
every last fellow will fall in line and.
f possible, make the camp a better
one than this year-
Tho smallest boy In camp. Ronald
Moffatt, deserves specinl mention for
he proved himself a real sport, a-1-
niys ready and willing to do his
hare of camp duties.
Plans are now being considered
whereby n camp re-unlon may be reid
the "Y" some time this coming
winter.    Don't forget this.
to Premier we ray "Au Hcvoir"
but not '"Good Bye"
and to supply whatever necessary
funds are found to be wauling. This
would mean that the bronze plate, the
purchase of which hus been contemplated by the council, would not be
proceeded with, but the money used
iustead to go towards au approved
monument.
The Veterans' delegation stated
tlieir case, und thero wus some discussion on tlie proposal. Tho Veterans take the attitude that so long
hus elapsed now and nothing definite
has beon done, thut they will erect a
monument memoriul un their own
grounds. They asked tho city council to use the money now in hand to
go towards tliis purpose, and later on
the council agreed to do this.
It is understood the monument will
cost up to about $1,800, nnd will bo
erected on the plot of ground adjoin
ing the Veterans' quarters.
Plans of monument will be gather
ed by the council, and a tentative se
lection of three or four probably be
made, after which the final choice will
probably rest with the Veterans, or a
joint committee with the city council.

the B. of L. B, weliomed Sister M. E.
Cassell of Cleveland, Ohio, Orand

cut flowers giving a charming appearance.
At 8.30 Bro. H. J. Brock, Chief of
Moyie Division 503, took the chair

BUSINESS PROSPECTS
FOK CltAMlItOOK MUST
ut: (o>smivi..:i> tjoou
it is evident that some peoplo have
confidence in the future of cranbrook as a business centre. This appears to be a vlow current among
many new concerns who arc-starting up at this time U, tho ciiy. They
seem to show more fniih lu the future
of the plafiO, as a matter of fact,, than
many of the older established places
of business.
A numlier of new ventures have
been announced of late, and in one
way or another u good many of tjie
vacant business premises at one time
to be seen uro being taken up.
The latest accession promised to
the ranks of the local business firms
In the city Is a dry goods, and ladles'
and gents' furnishing slore, which
may open shortly In the building on
Baker Street formerly occupied hy
the Hanson Garage Service Stntiim
Mr. Wntson, a representative of Calgary interests, who aro said to he be*
lilnd thc proposition made lhe
rangements last week for the muting
of the store nnd the handling of the
slock until Ills arrival hem to open
up.
The monthly meeting of the police
commission was held on Tuesday evening of this week, when the usual
business wns transacted nm) the pollco report fnr tho month previous received.
Premier Meighen, in
week at London, Out., announced his
Intention Of calling a Dominion elec*
lion before the end of lhe year.
"There Is no means or redistribution, exec]'! at the price of holding
iho country in suspense of very difficult limes for 18 or 20 months on an
issue formidably challenged, an issue
that goes to the heart of our industrial
and national life. For these reasons
I think the right thing to do is to recommend a dissolution of parliament
at an early dato to provide time for
■full discussion, nnd an election before
the New Year. That course I Intend
tu pursue," said the prime minister,
amid cheers.
Mr, Meighen was more than frank;
in fact, he went further than his
friends anil enemies hail expected. He
came out openly and stated that while
lie would prefer, and had sincerely intended, to submit a redistribution bill,
lie found that the complete census re-
lurns could not bo expected before December, and that, would mean at least
a mhl-winter campaign. This, the
prime minister said, was impossible.
When one considered tho great northern nnd western population, a mld-
winlor election In the Canadian latitude was not Ihinknble.
A revision of the tariff In Canada
Is duo and overdue To decide the
principle of the tariff was the big,
Imperative question before the people of Canada today. "Until they do
decide it." declared the prime minister, "wa cannot have tarirf stability,
we cannot have business stability, we
cannot have confidence, wo cannot
have full employment, wc cannot have
hcalih and growth' and virility
"L'utfl wo know whether the people want a protective tariff or whether they-don't, no tariff is secure.
Hither the opposition platform adopted In convention and set down In black
and witite. either it tsy the Farmers'
plat form means beyond all dispute the
overthrow of the historic policy of
this country."
The campaign will be short but
keen. Tlte Premier's announcement
of an election  before tho New Year
taken lo indicate that there wlfl be
little delay in cabinet reconstruction
and In the Issue of writs, with the
holding of the election as soon as the
necessary official preparations ean he
made.
Mnny Women
Thousands of women will vote who
were not enfranchised in the last
election. Then the female relatives
of soldiers were entitled to the vote.
The new election law enfranchises all
women, with certain exceptions in
the case of women of foreign birth,
who are over 21 years. Generally
peaking, every person, male or female, will bo qualified to vote who,
not being an Indian ordinarily resident on an Indian reservation:
la) Is a British tubject by birth
or naturalization:
(b) Is of the full nge of 21 years;
(c) Has ordinarily resided in Canada for ut least 12 months and in the
electoral district where such person
seeks to vote for at leant two months
Immediately preceding the issue of
the writ of election-
It  Is  provided,  however, that any
Indian who has served in the naval,
military or air forces of Canada in
tha hut war shall be qualified to
vole, unless such Indian Is otherwise
disqualified.
According to word from Victoria
the election will have considerable
bearing on the present political situations iu ll.c   Tlie Colonist says:
"Tho Federal contest Is likely to
produce interesting political complications In the provincial field. For In*
stance, In Vancouver Mr. M. A. Macdonald. firmer attorney-general in the
provincial cnbtnel und now one of
the Vuncoiiver City members In thi

LARGELY ATTENDED
METHODIST SOCIAL
HELD ON TUESDAY
The opening event of a fall and winter program whicli Bev. It. W. Lee.
pastor of the Mothodlst Church, has
planned, took place on Tuesday evening nt the Schoolroom adjoining the
Church, when Hev. and Mrs. Leo entertained members of lhe church and
congregation to a most enjoyable social. There wero about a hundred and
fifty present, and the evening was
spent most pleasantly hi music, contests, and other lines of activity customary to affairs of this nature. Contributing to the program were several
artistes new to Cranbrook audiences,
upon whose appearance very favorable
comment was made. At thc conclusion of tho program refreshments
were served, and the gathering broke
up at about 11.30 following1 a few re-
murks by Bev. R. W- Lee, and the
singing of the National Anthem.
Tlie program was aB follows:

Y.M.CA. BASEBALL TEAM
LOSES TO FERNIE IN
LABOR DAY GAME
On Monday last. Labor Day, the
Y.M.CA. baseball team played a Fernle nine, but lost out 11-10 ln a seven innings game. Fernle started off
strongly, but the visitors rallied towards the end and put In a strong finish, and with the full course of thc
game might have finished on the right
end of the score-
Fernie opened the scoring wiih a
single count in the first, and piled on
six more in the second. The Cranbrook visitors did not break' Into ihe
scoring column IIU the fourth inning,
when they recorded five runs. Both
sides put on three each in thc sixth,
and Fernie added one more in the
seventh, while the visitors put on two.
The line-up of the Y.M.C.A. team was
us follows: Catcher P. McNeill; pitcher Edle Spence; lst base T. Hoggartli; 2nd base Art. Gill; 3rd base
Musser; shortstop Bert Grady; right
field Malcolm Belanger; centre field
Clapp; left field D. Dallas; spare
Hoggarth.
It takes ull kinds of people to
make a world, and some have queer
vocations. One was here on Monthly, and not many people envy him
his job. Equipped with a cast-iron
grip and a nerve to match, Bill Stro-
ther, "the human spider," climbs up
the face of buildings with just about
the same degree of sang froid a3 the
usual man would climb a small step
ladder.
With his manager, Arthur Hill,
Strother reached the city from Nelson
on" Monday evening. On Tuesday the
word was spread that "the human
spider" would climb (the Hanson
Block and perform some other spec*
acular stunts for good measure. By
hree thirty all the kiddies in the city)
ind half the grown-up population
wero out at the scene of operations
o watch the nervy daredevil climber
In action. Mr. Hill opened the proceedings with a recital of his principal's reputation, and how he had
•limbed some of the biggest building*
DO the continent, and swallowed "the
human fly," his only serious rival in
tho business—quite a natural thing
■or one of the genus Ara'eida to do,
if courso. After the essential business of taking up the collection was
attended to, lhe spider got to work,
lie accomplished his part of the
program In very short order, and with
apparent ease. Starting at one of
tho corners lie worked his way up
lu a couple of minutes to the second
itorey window, and on the window
■ edge regaled the Interested onlookers
with a stunt of standing on his head
on the narrow window ledge* From
another window on the same storey
he made a spectacular ascent to the
roof and on to tlte highest ledge of
li" building. On the way up he made
ono or two false shows of difficulty,
and his final swing up on to the cornice was something of a real thriller. Once up on the roof he stood
on his head on the narrow ledge Just
to show how easy it was. and then
shinned up the flag pole to complete
the job.
He did not come down the way he
.vent up. but made an adjournment to
he Crunbrook hotel where he gave
another exhibition along the same
linos, namely, riding a bicycle round
lhe cornice up on the roof. This stunt
lie also put over in (he same finished
manner, and with the same show of
false moves which «emed to tickle
and thrill the crowd-
This ended one of the most novel
entertainments imaginable. Strother
has developed an original line of business, and rests quite secure in tho
knowledge that he is safe from any
serious Imposition
serious opposition.

OF MOYIE CCT-OFF
The attendance at the meeting of
the Conservative Women's Study Club
next Thursday evening, when Col.
Lister, M.P-P. for Kaslo ridlnk, will
be present to give an address, is not
to be restricted to ladles only. An
Invitation Is also extended to the men
to be present. The meeting tnkes
place at the Maple Halt, commencing
at 8 o'clock-
,A mining man from Tacoma has
made an appointment to come lo the
city within a few doys to demonstrate
a system which he has devised of saving tho fine gold whicli escapes during the ordinary processes of hydraulic or placer mining, and also during
tho milling, processes of quartz ore.
He bus ascertained what propects
thero are for a now process Of this
kind in this section, and may seek
to install ono of hia outfits on a percentage basis.
It does not seejp to be generally
known that the Dominion government is contributing some forty per
cent, of the cost of tho road diversion at Moyie Lake now being undertaken undepthe direction of the provincial government. This and other
road work being carried on, or recently carried ont in this province. com**s
within the scope of the Dominion
Highways .Act passed by the Ottawa
government in 1919, whereby the sum
of twenty-five million dollars was
made avalluble for assistance in the
Improvement of highways to be carried out hi the various provinces, subject of courso to the approval of thc
plans and the work by the Dominion
government engineers. Thus the provincial government is not entitled to
all the credit it is claiming In this
connection.
Tho attention of the local road Superintendent, Mr- Malcolm Horle, will
be drawn by letter to the fact that
complaints are being made that men
are being refused work on this particular piece of roud, for reasons
tbat appear to revolve on their political opinions. The fact that tills particular piece of work Is a joint hniler-
taking of the two governments Is an
especial reason why nny appearance
of this should be avoided. The matter will be taken UP nlso with Dr.
King, minister of Public Works at
Victoria, both by the executive of the
Conservative Association, and Dr-
Bonnell, M.P.
Dr. Saul Bonnell, M-P., of Fernle,
was in the city on Wednesday making
preliminary arrangements in regard
to Dominion election matters- He
was accompanied by Mr. Logan of
Vancouver, provincial organizer for
the National Liberal and Conservative
tarty for British Columbia. Thoy
;ave dining Uie past few days covered the eastcn end ef tliu *:a nb•
and on jjVednes I v made st ip3 it

and meeting of supporters held.
Ou Wednesday evening Dr. Bonnell
and Mr. Logan met the members of
the Cranbrook Womens' Conservative
Study Club at a parlor meeting held
at the home of Mrs. A. C Bowness,
Which was attended by many of the
members, and at which the federal
isues were laid before the ladies by
Dr. Bonnell and Mr. Logan. This
will be the first Dominion election at
which the full franchise is extended
to women.
Later in the evening the two gen-
tlemen met members of the executive
of the local Conservative Association
and a few others at an informal meeting when further discussion of tho
election situation was engaged in.
Dr. Bonnell ably made the issues of
the campaign quite clear, while Mr.
l-ogan told of what organization was
being effected in otlier parts of the
rovince-
It was decided to start the campaign with an entirely clean sheet,
nd elect a new organization at open
public meeting w\hich wll be held
■ ery shortly and duly announced- A
tall will be engaged and a committee
if two has in hand the matter of
arranging a suitable date- To this
meeting all supporters of the union
government and of the policies of
he Rt. Hon. Arthur Meighen, as
■rentier, are cordially invited, when
he formal organization of tho National Liberal and Conservative Asso-
iation of Cranbrook will be effected.
A committee of five was appointed
with power to add to their numbers
to do everything possible to make the
attendance at this meeting as representative as possible. It consists of
A. J. Balment. courenor. W. Johns,
Thos. D. Caven. W. F. Attridge and
J. T- San-is.
Among the matters which this forth-
omfng meeting will deal with will be
that of the voters' list, and a committee will be named to go into this. Under the Dominion Act, the last revised
provincial voters' list is used in the
federal elections, with what additions
are allowable. This is complicated in
the present case by the fact that tbe
new provincial law provides that thoso
who did not exercise their franchise
at the last provincial election have
their names automatically dropped
from the list. This was done at courts
of revision held this year, but cannot
apply of course to a federal election,
so many names will have to be added
again, together with any others
which it la found have been omitted
from any causes at all-
Other matters to come up at the
meeting will be the formal adoption
of a constitution covering the organization, and the method to be followed
fn forming organizations in other
parts of the constituency. Wycllffe,
Klmberley, Wattsburg. Yahk and
Klngsgate being among the poIntB
mentioned to have consideration.
It has been decided to ask the
Columbia and Fernle ridings, which
together with Cranbrook form tbe
Kast Kootenay federal constituency,
to name two delegates each to meet
In Cranbrook some time later in the
month for tho purpose of arranging
he details of a nominating convention, the placo, time and representation from each  polling district-
Dr. Bonnell and Mr. Logan left on
Thursday morning by car for the
Windermere and Golden to organise
throughout the Columbia riding. From
thenco Dr. Bonnell will return to Fernie, and Mr. I_og«n goes on to the
(■oast. A very efficient system of
provincial organization Is promised
which ought to have considerable influence on the outcome of the campaign.
Labor Day was spent very quietly
in tho city. A number went to Fernie
to tuke in the ceelbrnllon there, and
others went in the other direction fo
Qroen  Bay, nnd elsewhere.
The timber limits nt Crow's Nest

CRANBROOK,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th, 1021
THU HALL STARTS
ROLLING
Premier Meighen cannot be
accused of political cowardice
in the decision he has announced of going to tlie country before the end of the   year.   It
was a foregone conclusion that
whichever alternative was hit
upon   as   the   line   of action
everyone would not   be   satisfied. He has chosen the course
which he decides is the   best
possible.   None of the parties
represented in the   House   at
present can claim in any sense
that   an    election   has   been
sprung   unawares,    for   lion.
Mackenzie King, leader of the
Liberal party, has been demanding a general   election   ever
since he was elevated to   the
seats of the mighty from   the
comparative obscurity he hitherto enjoyed, and now that he
lias been given his request, he
surely cannot seriously suggest
he has been taken by surprise.
The same is true of the Farmers' party, or the Progressives
who stood with the   Liberals
last session ln a demand for an
election.    Flushed    with    the
success attained at the   polls
within recent months, it cannot
lie claimed they are without organization to enter the contest.
It haB been an easy matter to
take up the cry of "No election
before   re-distribution"   as   a
catch-phrase, but on    looking
into the matter it seems apparent that to hold off the election till re-distribution    could
be effected would be to defer
the contest for a considerable
time yet, about a year and   a
half, according to Premier Meighen.   One reason for this lies
in the fact that tho taking of
the census itself, especially in
the outlying districts, has proved more of a task than was anticipated, and it ls likely  to be
the end of the year before all
the returns from the far wesl
and northern sections are In.
Then would commence the real
work of re-distribution, and one
can see more than a modicum
of truth in the contention of the
Premier that an attempt to carry on in the meantime would
not be justified.
The matter resolves itself Into consideration as to whether
it were better to get the feeling
of the country under the present distribution of seats, or to
bring the business of the coun
try to a virtual standstill for
over a year at least for that
consideration. The advocates
of a short session of the House
specially for the purpose of
putting through redistribution
are reminded by the Premier
that this is not feasible owing
to the impossibility of getting
the census returns detailed out.
This would also entail hurrying
over the plan of redistribution,
and a campaign of such duration as would not allow any
particular group to do themselves justice with the electorate.
There is another consideration to which tlie Premier has
also doubtless given consideration, and to which lie alluded
by way of a hint in making bis
announcement of an Impending
election. Under the redistribution after the census the west
is due for an increased representation. Liberals and Progressives are outspoken in tlieir
assertions that tliis is where
they hope to gain strength,
But, says Premier Meighen, the
census returns are going to
show that what the rural interests gain in the west they lose
in the east, and more besides,
In other words, while the western rural population has increased, the eastern urban centres have not been standing
still, but have apparently been
making bigger strides still. One
can foresee when this became
clear, how charges of gerrymandering with redistribution
would be levelled at the Premier's head. With a new House
elected, with at least the proper
sentiment of the people represented, if not in quite correct
geographical proportion, the
business of redistribution can
be taken up aside from the hectic atmosphere of an impend
ing election, and the state of affairs it might give rise to.
The Premier states in a nut
shell that three courses were
open: an early election on the
existing distribution of seats; a
hurriedly considered redistribution measure and a more hurriedly conducted election to allow of the usual spring session;
or a more protracted delay during which  the House    would
certainly have to mark time so
far as any contentious legislation was concerned.   He chose
the first and may yet be able
to demonstrate his farsightedness to his critics who are being heard within tlie ranks of
his own party as well as without.
FROM THK VIEW-POINT
OF
OUR CONTEMPORARIES
Tlie real solution lies in making all contribute their quota
who have access to the facilities offered. At the present
time, here and elsewhere, a
condition obtains which places
the financial burden of the upkeep of the scliools on the
shoulders of the ratepayers,
while some, who contribute only indirectly to the city through
rented premises, still have full
enjoyment of all educational
advantages for their children.
This should not by any means
be denied them, but an equitable system should be devised
whereby all would become contributors instead of those who
in the past have been carrying
the entire load of school taxation so far as the share of the
municipalities is concerned.

Propaganda against government

Eustern papers quote the chuirmua of

out in such a way that the philanthropists will make large profits and
tho public secure a new line of experience.
The National Railways will come

THE PROBLEM OF
EDUCATION
It is not surprising that the
suggestion advanced at the
meeting of the Union of B.C.
Municipalities last week, that
the provincial government take
over the entire upkeep of the
schools, received mighty short
shrift from Premier Oliver. It
was only to be expected it
would. The motive in offering
the suggestion was a perfectly
legitimate one. The burden of
taxation in some municipalities
has become well-nigh intolerable, and relief was-sought from
what seems in some cases to
be the biggest item—the upkeep
of the schools. But this does
not necessarily Imply it is the
quarter from which relief
should be sought.
To put the schools entirely
under government control
would be every whit as disastrous to the cause of education
as to leave them to the tender
mercies of the local authorities. On the one hand there
would be the Inevitable mixing
of politics and school matters
and on the other hand the danger of excessively penurio*..s
policies.
It is unfortunately true that
most of the municipalities now
feeling the pinch are only reaping crops of their own sowing.
When times were good they
speeded up their expenditures
only to find they could not slow
down fast enough when conditions became changed. The result is that today education ln
many places is suffering from
this folly. But It cannot be
brought to a standstill like civic improvements. Its needs
have to be provided for, and
year by year shows an increasing demand being made on
school facilities for the simple
reason that the population of
the province refuses to stand
still, but will increase.
To abuse school boards for
increases in expenditures is
childish, and to seek to shuffle
the burden off on the lap of the
government Is equally   futile.
The work on the Moyie water works
is progressing steadily.
Tlie instruments for tlie Cranbrook
band have arrived anil have been delivered to tlie organization. The boys
will  begin  regular practice at once.
Tlie new smelter at Marysvllle will
have a capacity of nbout 150 tons a
day when first started. Additional
facilities will be installed when the
business warrants it.
Corey Dow who has been acting as
special night constable in Cranbrook
for the past two years has been -appointed provincial constable and stu-

FILLING IN LONG
TRESTLE AT KOOTENAY
LANDING THIS FALL
Tho Canadian Pacific Railway Is
commencing this month tho biggest
bit of repair work nudertaken on the
Cranbrook division of the Crow's Nest
line in many years. It consists of a
fill from tho depot nt Kootenay Landing to tbe end ot tbe trestle at the
steamer wharf, a distance of a quarter of a mile, with the trestle extending upward n matter of at least fifty
feet from the water's edge at the hi-:ii-
est point near the depot. The mu.er-
ial for the big fill will bo secured at
a point about four miles east of C.-es-
tcn, and the present arrangements
ure to have three work trains on ti
job—one coming, one going and tlie
third unloading, usmp steel self-lumping cars on the work. While It is
Impossible to accurately estimate tbe
amount of material that will bo required it Is thought the job will take
nt least two, If not three, months, lo
complete. Willie it is under way landing yard crew will work nights handling the freight traffic to and from
the barges from Proctor. Tbe Can
■adlan Pacific Railway has deferred
tills work at least a yoar, awaiting a
decline ill tlie cost of labor, but it
will imve to be proceeded with Immediately as the present trestle has been
in use so long that oven now tiie
company will not risk its heavier
type of freight engines over the presont trestle-till.
False Alii to Industry
British Columbia now has before it
i tlie task of clearing away the wreck-
| age left by a misguided policy of loaning money to industrial concerns.
Playing the part of banker has not
proved clear sailing. The. province
has built up assets of doubtful value,
ln its credits advanced to industrial
concerns not looked upon with favor
by the banks. The present industrial
depression has brought the matter to
a head more quickly than would normally have been the case, but the
same position would have Jieen reached sooner or later ln any case.
Although the total credits have, not
been large, several of the accounts
are in a dubious position. A tew
weeks ago Premier Oliver stated that
no loans would be made to new companies, but only to those which thc
province bad already undertaken to
assist. Some of the latter have, however, been-asking for furtiio,- loans,
which the province ls not Inclined to
grant, and a meeting of the advisory
board of the department of Industries
was held on Auust 8 to discuss tbe
future policy In this connection.
The account which has precipitated
action on tlie part of tbe government
is that of the British Columbia Yacht
and Boat Builders, Ltd., a Victoria
concern which over a year ago was
granted a loan of $10,000. Other creditors of this concern nre Involved; and
tbe government has decided to Institute legal action. Application was
made to the federal government by
the province to the end that moneys
owing to the company by the Dominion on uccount of two boats constructed by the company for the Dominion
should be ear-marked for the provincial government, to be applied to the
company. Ottawa advised the province that lt would hold all moneys
pending the appointment of a receiver or someone entitled to apply the
moneys owing by Ottawa on behalf
of tlie creditors. In addition to the
$10,000 loan advanced by the Department of Industries to the company,
an advance was also made by the Re-,
turned Soldiers' Aid Commission to
meet a wage bill. At present thero fs
owing tho province approximately
$12,000.
Regard for the credit of tlie province, and for the Interest of its bondholders, requires that a policy which
can only lead to difficulty bo abandoned. Plenty of assistance for new
Il r'ustrics ,;,•) be obtained through
legitimate banking and Investment
chnnnels. Tlie policy bf the province
hns not created new capital for industries—It lias only diverted capital
from those channels through which lt
viin be most- wisely applied to productive use.—Monetary Times.

With the completion of the main
line of the Canadian Pacific railway
in 1S85 the station Donald, twelve
miles west of Golden, was made an
important divisional point- It was
then the judicial, commercial and religious centre of all the vast territory
lying between Calgary ou the east,
Kamloops on thc west and extending
to the Arctic circle on thc north nnd
to the International boundary on the
south. Until the construction of the
Crow's Nest branch of tho Canadian
Pacific there was not another "Queen
City" within that territory which
challenged its powers. Evil times
fell upon the place however, when
the Canadian Pacific Railway about
tho year 1899 determined for strategic
reasons, that its power should be
taken from it and distributed between
l-aggan 1 Lake Louise) on the eost,
Revelstoke on tlie west and Golden In
Its Immediate vicinity. This marked
the town's downfall, for the government office and otlier factors in the
upholding of a community were all
taken from it until today there Is not
anything which marks Donald save
Its name as a flag station and the few

tumble down and fast tumbling ruins
of wooden buildings which remain.
Tliere are not many of thoso left for
tho Canadian Pacific Railway, as an
act of graco, gave every possiblo help
to those who had built there and
wished to remove to otlier parts.
lu the year 1887, through the energetic efforts ot Rev. Henry Irwin, the
Church of England which now reposes
at Windermere had been built tliere.
To every person who knows anything
of the interior of British Columbia the
name of Rev. Henry Irwin sounds
strange for he is more familiarly and
bettor known as "Father Pat." An
Irishman by birth and lie was widely
known and loved by reason of his
kindness of heart and sincerity of purpose. He was resident clergyman of
tho parish and as stated above il
held the only Church of England that
could be found throughout that pari
of tho west- He was succeeded in
office by tho Rev- J. C. Kcnim.
When most other buildings lind
"fled" Ruins A." Klmpton, one of the
thou leaditig citizens, having determined to live in Wndormere und move
his buildings there, with characters
tic vigor, spurred by love for his
church, but without any ecclesiastical
authority besought the aid and In
fluence of Tom Kllpatrlck, the super
intendent of the Canadian Pacific
Railway at Revelstoke, and obtained
from lilm the right of transportation
for two cars, had the church carefully razed and placed thereon together with its sweet toned bell. The
transportation was free und the razing cost but thirty dollars so the expenditure on tho building as ft rested
lu the cars at Golden was not much.
As It was intended for Windermere a
change had to be made and while It
rested In the boat company's yard a
delegation of Goldenites, so Mr. Kimp-'
ton says, headed hy a man whom he
calls "Griff," came along in the night
and removed the bell which had been
a gift of the late Baroness Hurdelt
Coutts. The bell was later hung ln
the belfry of the Cliurci of England
at Golden where it slill remains
To follow the history of the church
itself, through the kind offices of
Captain Francis P. Armstrong, of the
then Upper Columbia Tramway and
Canal Company, who now resides al
Nelson, B.C-, they agreed to supply
a barge and take the building to
Windermere, one hundred miles up
the Columbia River at a cost of sixty
dollars. This being agreed to the
work was performed and under the
direction of Mr. Klmpton, now of
Keoma, Alberta, the building was re-
erected wliere It now stands. The
Reverend Mr. Turner was then the
clergyman in charge of the Golden
parish which Windermere came under. The church was beflttingly re-
dedicated by the Reverend F. C. Yates
wlio succeeded Mr. Turner In Golden
Along with the church came one of
the parish registers which in itself Is
of great interest. It now lies in the
vestry. The flrBt entry shows n service in Donald conducted on the 9th
of August, 1887, by the Reverend I.
C. Kemm. Following this are many
entries of great local interest covering services, baptisms and funerals
in the order In which they came about.    For several Sundays  iu  Oct
ober and November, 1893, Rev. Hen-1
ry Irwin (Father Pat) is recordod as
having held scrvlcos. In thut same!
year tlie register was extended and
services aro shown to huve been held
by the incumbent In Donald, Golden,
Field, Revelstoke, Canal Flat, Windermere, Vernon and Beaver. Kev.
E. St. George Smythe was amongst
those who later ministered to the
spiritual wants of the people of Windermere and surroundings.
Still another book of interest in the
church which came along with it
from Uouald is u handsome Bible on
tlie reading desk. An Inscription on
Its fly page tells Its own story. It
reads: "Thla Bible was purchased
with lho offertory at a special celebration 111 the Theological College
chapel, Lichfield, Kngland, Nov. 17th,
1888. when ono of tlieir members was
leaving for work in thc dinceso of
New Westminster. Episcopal Church,
Donald,  B.C., Jan., 1889."
In addition to this Bible the church
possess by direct gift a book of Common Prayer and an altar service book
together with two haiidsoino altar
vases. Tho Inscription in the book
of Common Prayer related their history and is not amongst the least interesting features of this llttlo building. This Is how it reads: "Book of
Common Prayer presented—together
with two altar vases and an altar service book—to the Church of St. Peter,
at Windermere, British Columbia, by
the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's
Cathedral, Feb., 1904. This book was
regularly used In St. Paul's Cathedral
during the latter years of Queen Victoria's reign by the minor canon
chanting for the week (Hebdomndar-
lus.) W. P. Beasley, Minor Canon
:ind Librarian-"
This book is heavily bound and on
the cover is the impressed tokens with
motto showing that it belong to St.
Paul's Cathedra! in Old England.
Some may carp and say that 34
years is no age for record and their
statement may be correct yet It must
be borne In mind that this country is
.*et in its infancy and that 34 years
pretty well marks the limit of history
within its borders while young in
years is still old in the history of
the part to which it belongs.

VICTORIA FAVORS ROUTE
OVER HOPE MOUNTAINS
FOR HIGHWAY TO COAST
Confirmation of the prediction that
the first connecting link between tlie
highways of the interior and the lower mainland will be over the Hope-
Princeton route is contained in a recent communication said to have passed from the Deputy Minister of Public Works for this province, to the
secretary of the Edmonton Automobile
Club, This club made an urgent request Unit the British Culiimblu government take up the construction of
a trans-provincial road via thc Yellowstone Pass nnd Jasper Park. Here
Is Victoria's reply to this request;
Sir—Referring to your communication of the 18th ultimo to Mr. Gwyer,
district engineer, Pentlcton, and to thc
Hon. the Premier, I beg to advise
that at the present time wc are devoting all our energies, insofar as
our limited funds will permit, to completing the southern route from the
Coast to Alberta via Hope, Princeton,
Nelson and the Crow's Nest Pass.
The main gap ln this road between
Hope and Princeton, a distance ot
about 82 miles, now remains to be
built. Tliere are three or four routes
available but as yet tlie government
has not been able to decide which to
follow. The completion of this connection will likely Involve an expenditure of one million dollars at least,
and until such time as this Is completed, we do not think it wise or
desirable under existing financial conditions to enter Into negotiations or
arrangements for another trans-provincial road, as we find it impossible
to buld roads for settlers as fast ns
we should like to do. However, the
northern route through Yeltowhead
has much In Us favor and will no
doubt be built before many yenrs
pass.
Yours obediently, etc."

when the latter was calied.
"In the Interior too, present members of tho provincial House aro credited with grooming themselves for
Dominion political status. For instance, Dr. Sutherland, of Revelstoke.
could have tho Liberal nomination for
one of the Kootenay ridings it is stated; Mr. Fred Anderson, member for
Kamloops, is credited with a desire
to run at the forthcoming Federal election as Liberal standard-hearer for

talk among Nelson Conservatives that
Dr. Rose, present Conservative member for that city in the Provincial
House, would bo a likely candidate
In the West Kootenay riding at present represented by Mr. R. F. Green,

Green will, in all likelihood. go 10 the
Senate, new appointments >o which
will shortly be announced. Friends
of Rev. Thomas Menzies, Comox, representative of the People's Parly In

IXSTAXCE:   CRANBROOK
Something like fifty sacks of Eaton
catalogues reached Grand Forks post
offico this week, says tho Grand Forks
Gazette. They number, roughly, six
hundred, and each book with postage
costs around $2, so that shipment
alone has cost this mail order house
about $1,200. These shipments are
usually made twice a year, and in addition smaller special-sale catalogues
are sent out at Intervals, so that this
firm spends upward;: of $2,400 a year
for business accruing at Grand Forks.
Thero is only one reason why Eaton spends the money sending his
catalogues here, and that is, it brings
results—It pays. And a little consideration to these figures will give
somo idea of the magnitude of the
business which this firm must do
here. These figures lare Hor one
firm's operations only; there are other
mail order firms which expend considerable money in a like manner.
"Catalogues are the most expensive method of advertising; they aro
not gven out In the big cities where
the stores operate for that reason- Instead, the newspapers are used, because they are more effectual nnd
more economical. And, moreover,
during dull times Uko thc present,
the advertising appropriations uro Increased, not dlmnslicd."
BANKS WILL CO-OPERATE
IX BELIEF MEASURES
FOR WESTERN STOCKMEN
Ottawa.—Measures for the relief of
tho live stock industry of Canada,
now being taken, do not provide alone
for advances by banks to help farmers or ranchers to keep their slock,
hut arrangements are being made for
ships suitably equipped for the cattlo
carrying trade to Great Britain. While
the embargo is still on it is not. and
never has been, absolute.
It is'possible to ship cattle to England so long as, at certain points,
they aro slaughtered within ten days.
This Is held hy many stock men to
be preferable to sending over tlie
chilled beef. Tiie trouble arises from
lho fact that when tho United States
market absorbed Canadian cattle, the
cattle ships from Canadian points
wont out di business. They naturally
call for special equipment. Arrangements are now being made to supply
tliis deficiency, and moreover, it ts
believed, the prospects for removing
iho embargo wholly are fuvornblc.
About $10,000,000 Is expected to be
tl.e initial advance by flic banks for
the purpose of enabling farmers to
hold or secure cattle. In some cases
'they have cattle without fodder and
in others fodder without cattle. The
hanks, ou the security of the stock,
will make tlie advance necessary to
cope with tlie situation, the govern
ment acting as guarantor.

I It Is estimated that there are 400
billion feet of merchantable timber
ii» tho Province, more than half the
forest wealth of Canada, and experts
say that over five times the amount
nt present cut every year could bo
used without encroaching too much
on the timber resources of the Pro-
vince. ,
The value of forest products for
3919 was $70,:S5,094, but this waa
largely owing to the high prices prevailing for all lumber, wood-pulp,
etc., due to a world shortage and a
great demand.
i The Douglas Fir is the most famous of all British Columbia's trees,
growing to a height of 250 ft. and
G and 9 ft. in diameter. It is used
for house construction, boat-building, mine props, poles, railway ties,
bridge and trestle timbers and many
other things.
| Then there is the Red Cedar,
famed all over the world for the
shingles it produces, doors, frames
and finely dressed panelling for lining living-rooms; the Sitka Spruce
for ncroplnnes, and Western Hemlock for box-manufacturing and
pulpwood.
Vancouver is a city <*i saw-mills;
there is a fringe of them lining the
creeks and inlets of the coast around
the city and one seldom looks out
to sea without watching some little
tug towing a huge boom of logs behind it that have come perhaps from
[some camp hundreds of miles away

Who shall say the lumberjack'i
life is not one of the beat there is?
Care free and next to nature, he
epends his day in the great outdoors
with the scent of the sap that oozes
out of tho fresh-cut cedar, the smell
of the wood-smoke of his camp
fires, of wet moss and bursting bal-
tam bark.
Instead ef the deafening din of
restless humanity he hears the roar
of a distant waterfall, the call of
wild reese or the warning cry of his

irmere, B.C-, Sept. 7.—The old
amusement grounds of the erstwhile
quiet village of Windermere were en
fete on Labor Day wheu the first
sporting event of moment which had
bteil held in that spot for the last
seventeen years wai in progress- The
occasion was a Stampede staged for
the benefit of the district hospital
and ull the world und his wife were
in attendance. Rarely has such an
attendance of the real old timers luk-
en place and the beauty of the day
enhanced by thu joyous clothing of
the people of the community ami the
bright colored garments of the many
Indians present. It was certainly an
old timers day and one and all wt re
present to enjoy it, partaking gener-
ocsly of the cup which cheers but
not Inebriates and enjoying ice cream
and other delicacies.
Windermere Itself was gaily decorated for the oocOBlon Wltll evergreen.-,
and hunting put there by the master
hand of Charles D. Kills. Taken all
through the effect was most charming
There was a large program of
sports consisting largely of horstrac
ing and contests on horseback, Of
the racing the chief event was Hated
as Windermere derby comprising best
out of three heats. This was won in
two straight heats by Kootenay Boy,
owned by,Adriaiuie, an Indian of Port
Steole with Henry Joseph, a little Indian lad up. The half mile pony race
was won by Nellie, owned by Neas,
with little Jimmie's boy as rider, lhe
second prize being taken by Buster
Boy, with Edward Stanley os jockey.
The quarter mile pony race was won
by Black, ownod by Louis CapilO- In

Indian named Paul was easily first
in 50 seconds with Louis CapHo an-
uthcr Indian second, his time being
ono minute and fifty threo second:*..
In the squaw race there were six contestants and they certainly presented
a gay field In their bright colored racing suits. The race of one-half mile
was a hot one and often tho winner
was In doubt but Christina Michel
on a fine horse passed the wire away
ahead of Mrs. Neas who turned out
to be second, a hard competitor bolting when near the judge's stand. The
other races were Holiday stakes won
by Louis Capilo on Black first, and

(North West Mining Truth)
Federal Mining & Smelting Co. has
secured a bond on the Stemwinder mid
Ontario group of claims adjoining the
big Sullivan property of Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co,, of Canada,
Ltd.. near Kimberley. East Kootenay,
British Columbia. Consideration involved is not mude public and lhe
life uf the bond is officially stated
to bo "ample" to ascertain definitely
the value of the ground from Federal's
standpoint. These groups are part
of the mineral holdings of the MacKenzie &. Munn interests, ami huve
beeu held by the Eastern Caiiaili.ii
railway builders for a number of
years-
Option Hold Previously
Federal has been interested In tho I
ground before, to the extent of an option held In l'JIS, but which wus dropped after two or three months' diamond drilling, lt was gathered from
tills that at the time the results were
unsatisfactory. Development of immense reserves of mixed si.lver-le.ul-
zinc ore in tlie Sullivan by Consolidated Co., uud leasing operations conducted by Thompson & McKinney on North
Star group may he responsible for
Federal's decision to re-enter tho
Held. On the other hand, abandoning
the ground after some diamond drilling might mean such work was announced as unsatisfactory with a view
to arranging a new deal. Tho Mackenzie & Munn Interests are known
to be In a tight comer and at the present time they would undoubtedly he
very much inclined to throw overboard for comp-arntively little a complex mlnoralogicol "white elephant."
Wiih Also Interested In North Stnr
The North Star group was also at
one time under bond to Federal or
A. S. & R., but the deal came to nothing. Rumors from the East Kootenay section stating that Federal lias
this time secured a bond on North
Star group also, are denied by General Manager Frederick Burbldge.
Diamond Drilling Slarted
Other rumors from the Canadian
Bide place the amount to be spent in
development by Federal 'as around
$3,000,000, with construction of a
railroad to connect up with the Great
Northern, presumably at Elko. Mr.
Burbldge laughed at the idea ot spending such an amount on what he termed a "prospect," while probable rail-
nd from Fort Steele in moHtlroad construction was characterized
cases, the evidence on the ground he-1 aa absurd in view of the fact that the
Ing that the whito mun in this part  Canadian Pacific already has a branch
a matter of fact, drilling bas been !
commenced. The bond provides ample liiiio in which to allow us to!
prove the merits of the property," [
Ores Comities
While not u great deal Is known
about the Stemwinder and Ontario'
(•roups by outsiders, the supposition I
la that ths ores are similar ln their'
nature to those of North Star and Sul-1
Ivan- These are complex with silver-!
lead-Zinc values, and early attempts;
to treat Sullivan product with a smelter at Marysvllle were unsuccessful. [
Consolidated M. & S. Co., which later
acquired the property, resorted to<
milling and electrolytic treatment as
a solution of the problem, and the But- j
11 Ivan Is now the is now the Consoli-1
i dated's largest tonnage producer. |
| Thompson & McKinney, North Star !
lessees, have latterly produced a con- j
Blderable tonnage from North Star,;
but. whether tlieir operations havo
been profitable is not known. The
lease has been non-productive so far
this year, which Is not surprising considering lead and zinc prices.
U Federal After Lend.
Taking hold a second time of a
I proposition previously dropped by the
A. S. & R. subsidiary may be taken
in mean one or botli of two things.
Thu first is a dire necessity for lead
oro for fluxing purposes, or a recog-
nitlon of tho ultimate Importance ot
the Canadian leal, silver and zinc
market from the standpoint of a corporation able to produce those metals
in Canada. In the meantime, East
Kootenay peoplo are feeling very we'd
satisfied with re-entrance of Federal
into that field.
