Speakers Last Week Open
Dr. King's Campaign
On Saturday evening last the first
meeting of tho Liberal campaign in
' litis city took place attho Auditorium,
when, -supporting Dr. J. H. King on
the platform, wero Hon. W. R. Motherwell, minister of agricuture in the
McKenzie' Kinjr government, and J.
W. DeB. Karris, formerly attorney-
gefheral in the B.C. government.
Good speakers nre usually assured
of a representative audience on such
occasions in.Crnnbrook, and the hall
was well filled. * While the audience
was assembling the Bluebird orchestra gave some selections. Alderman
■F. M. MacPherson opened the meeting nfter the singing of 0 Canada.
Old Age Pensions
i)r. King, who was the first speaker, wns pomewhnt brief, having to fill
.another engagement at Kimberley
the same evening. He described the
recent session of the parliament as a
.difficult one, but the outcome was a
great session, with much legislation
, for the musses. He went into detail
in regard to the old age pension question, outlining the history of this
policy and how it had been dealt with
by the Liberals. After taking office
in 1921, there had been big Conservative deficits to meet, but this year
they had felt conditions warranted
bringing down such a measure. He
had introduced and fathered the bill
in the House ond criticized the Conservative view that the provincial
premiers should have been consulted.
He criticized the standpoint of R.
B. Bennett, H. 0. Cahan, Sir Geo.
Foster and other Conservatives, who,
he stated .had opposed it. "It will
again be introduced after the Uth
of September, when the Liberals ar*
in. power again," Dr. King promised,
and his forecast was greeted with applause from his supporters,
passing on  to  rural credits,  Dr.
. King stated these hud been introduced to provide cheap loans on long
terms to farmers. It was realized
that the country had not done a great
deal for agriculture, which was undoubtedly Canada's greatest industry. This measure died wilh dissolution on the advice of Mr. Meighen.
Another measure which failed to receive assent was thai providing for
the re-valuation of soldier settlement
Laud* Ihe Budget
The Robb budget Dr. King described ns "tho people's budget,"
claiming that all the people in Canada come Under its benefits. Its effect on the auto industry, Pr. King
BUtcd, would not be harmful, but
generally improve it. The duties on
ctirsup to $1200.00 had been cut by
16 per cent, nnd of values above that
by 7 Mt imt cent. In addition to thi*,
a rebate was allowed for of 80 per
cent of thc duty on parts, provided
' .10' per rent of the part* employed
'wVre Canadian mude, which was to
he inrreiisei! to B0 per cent next year.
Ju addition to the IB per cent reduction, fi .per cept war tax had been
tiiken otT,. pn the understanding tlml
this wns to In- allowed to the public.
Mr. King stated that extensions were
being made.to the General Motors
plant, whirl) did not appear to he
siill'erinn from the effects of the hiid-
gefc   ,
hissing on to the income tux, it
wa.s shown lhal further reductions
had Urn made, the receipt tax had
been abolished and the sales tax reduced on about 205 commodities.
The reduction in postage might not
-no nn much to nu individual, but Dr.
King cluimed that in the business of
the nation, it meant a great deal,
"Which do ynu prefer, a Robb bud-
gel or increased taxation?" Dr. King
Dr. King also mnde a passing re-
fertnee to the challenge recently
made by Mr. Bowser op the samp
platform, that he meot the ladies and
diifciiisH withJmem ..the customs scandal. This he would be glad to do
ut any time. There certainly was a
departmental scandal, but he refuted
the statement that the report did not
contain anything against previous
administrations, and stated that some
of the cases being cited most commonly hud occurred under Conservative administration.
Young Girls of St. Mary's
Sunday School Give Pleasant Surprise
Friday evening, August 27th, the
children of St. Mary's parish took occasion to honor three of their Sunday school teachers who are leaving
shortly for different points.
As the children's choir were prime
movers in the event it took place at
tho home of their leader and organist, Miss Lillian Jackson, and was u
complete surprise to her and the other
young ladies, Miss Eileen McQuaid
and Miss Marguerite Godderis.
Miss Catherine Harrison was mistress of ceremonies, having arranged
the program of children's songs and
recitations, all of which were very
well performed.
The address of farewell to the teachers was ably read by Miss Hazel
Campbell, at the conclusion of which
little Margaret Doris entered wheeling a doll carriage which had been
beautifully decorated by Miss Mary
Rankins. This carriage contained
three bouquets of sweet peas und a
fine Eversharp pencil and fountain
pen for each teacher, also a bouquet
and a pretty bracelet for Nellie Sakaguchi, who is also leaving for school
in Calgary. Little Margaret performed her port like a princess,
After the recipients of the presents had made suitable replies nnd
the program was concluded, the evening was spent in games, closing with
refreshments also supplied by the
little girls.
The three young ladies are going
to opposite sides of the continent,
Miss Eileen McQuaid going to u convent in Quebec, Miss Marguerite Godderis entering Normal at Victoria,
and Miss Lillian Jackson going to
the U.B.C, at Point prey.
The address which was presented to
them read as follows:
"We havo assembled this evening
to express our gratitude to you who
have taken such a kindly interest in
our Sunday school and choir.
"You have devoted much of your
time to our welfare. Although young
folks do not make long speeches or
long addresses they have nevertheless
noble sentiments and grateful hearts.
We regret your departure from our
midst very much. Our consolation is
in your success of the past and in
your studies. We know that you will
conic back with honors, a credit to
your parents and St. Mary's parish.
As nn expression of our gratitude
we ask you to accept thes* tokens
together with our sincere wishes for
your future success.
"Children St. Mary's Parish."
Mayor Louis D. Taylor was one
of the members of thc Vancouver
Board of Trade to visit Crnnbrook
and  Kimberley  this week.
Awarded Gold Medal
J. S. Partridge, C.I'.R. engineer,
running on the main line out of
Field, wus last week the recipient of
u presentation from the hands of E.
W. Uentty, president nf the road, of
the Royal Canadian Humane Society
gold medal. In addition his feat, performed in the ordinary eourso of his
work, won for him an award of $1000
from a Chicago institution. At Yoho
last fall after a slide, Mr. Partridge
saved the lives of five fellow employes, and then hastened to flag an
oncoming train which would have met
with disaster had this not been done.
An   Interruption
Dr. King was mentioning the general improvement apparent in the
conditions throughout the country,
referring particularly to the favorable trade balance, when an interruption was heard, ascrihing this improvement to big crops of recent
years. Dr. King immediately addressed himself quite vigorously to the in-
terrtiptnr, and said thnt thc big crops
would lie useless without markets in
which to dispose of them. To this
came a further reply, not heard completely on the platform, but which
seemed to refer to the fact that thc
man working for $3.00 a day was not
much concerned with this. "That is
what the Conservative party is doing
today," nr. King said, referring to
the interruption, claiming that electors were being led away hy such interruptions and side-issues which took
the minds of the people off the main
Dr. King claimed that the inter-
empire trade had been encouraged by
the late government, and as to the
Australian treaty, he stated that Canada was sending $10,00 worth of
goods to Australia for every dollar's
(Continued of Page Fear)
The weekly luncheon of tho Rotarians was advanced one day this
week in order to allow its members
to hear Rev. Dr. H. H, Bingham, of
Calgary, who wus in the city on Monday of this week. Most interesting
was his address on the subject "The
New Civilization." His talk was a
wonderful exposition of an old
thought in a new way—the conclusion
reached being that while the civilization of the future would be intellectual, at the same time religion would
be an important dominating factor,
Reg. Rose, a prominent Y.M.C.A.
worker of Calgary, wns also present
at thc luncheon.
Advice was received here last
week from Moyie that it was expected the first carload of ore From the
Aurora mine, on Moyie Lake, would
be sent forward to the Trail smelter.
This ore is bcing taken from the
dump al No. 2 level, it is understood,
and is taken by truck along the new
rond to the loading platforms ot Aldridge, Ore is also to be taken out of
the upper workings, and after going
through thc sorting bins which have
been built, goes into the trucks on !
(he road below tov shipment. There
is said to be enough ore ready bow
for the shipment of two cars n week
for some time.
Simultaneously with the meeting In
Cranbrook, the first guns in thc Liberal campaign at Kimberley boomed
also on Saturday night last. The
meeting wns held In the I.O.O.F. Hull |
there, with a goud attendance. .1. W.
Brault acted as the chairman for the
evening, and the first speaker was
J, W. DeB.   Karris.
He covered practically the same
points there as in his address a little
later in this city, pointing to the long
record of public life of Dr. King, and
his intimate connection with this district, emphasizing also the pint Dr.
King took in the Introduction of the
old Uge pension legislation at Ottawa
last session. He also touched on the
customs scandal, the Robb budget
and the general improvement in national conditions, which he ascribed
due in no small measure to the
Liberal   administration.
Hon. Wm. Sloan, the next speaker,
ulso dwelt heavily on the old age pen-
ion* measure, its provisions, and ils
progress through the house of commons. He scored the senate heavily
for having rejected the measure,
claiming it cut pff thc hope at many
persons in the twilight of life iu this
country, while the senators themselves were in receipt of a life pension
of $4,000 per year or $41 per hour.
He urged strong support for Dr. King
and the Liberal government on the
grounds of their record.
Dr. King, who was the lnst speaker,
appearing on thc pint form after he
hod completed his address in this city,
also covered practically the same
ground. He outlined the legislative
program of the McKenzie King government, und deprecated tho customs scandal as an issue of the campaign. The budget hnd worked out
to the advantage of the majority of
the people, and the cut in nptumpbile
duties had not meant the ruin of that
industry, but its expansion, reading
from correspondence to prove his
contention. There had been other
reductions in taxation under the budget, and ho nlso pointed to vastly Improved national trade conditions. He
strongly disclaimed any Liberal tendencies to disloyalty or weakening
the ties of the empire, but ut the
same time they should not be afraid
to trade with the United States to
the best advantage.
Thc meeting closed with the National Anthem.
On Saturday of this week the latest
addition to Cranbrook's list of holds
will be opened to the public, for on
that date the new Hotel Byng, situated on Cranbrook Street, in what was
formerly the old G.W.V.A. building,

With the alterations and improve
ments one would never recognize the
former building, as from top to hot-
torn the place bus been made lik
new. Under the lower portion strong
heavy sills have been, placed and

been converted intp bedrooms, Upstairs it has been thoroughly renovated with new paint and plaster so that

work Mr. Qeo, Tu.ter suys he is more
than pleased. The painting, which
hus ulso been well done, was in the
hands of Mr. Egan,
Mr. Tater has made a large investment and is to be commended on his
Meighen's Message
to Canada!
"The only thing for us to do is to get up
and stand on our feet—hold our irreplacable
natural materials in our own country, and get the
value of them for the people of Canada; make
our own wares, employ our own people, use our
own water powers, fill up the cars on our own
lines of railway, turn the traffic through our own
ports, rely upon ourselves, our resources, our
talents, our courage; and if we do, the progress
of Canada in the next twenty years will he the
marvel of the industrial world."

The many music lovers and well-
wishers of Mr. Harold V. Anderson
will be treated to an excellent and
original program when he gives his
recital at the Knox Presbyterian
Church on Wednesday evening, September 8th. Many of the numbers
have not be heard before in America,
and the public will have an opportunity to hear and judge the merits
of the great leaders of the modem
school. Although Rachmaninoff i>
well known on this side as a treat
pianist and is the composer of the
famous prelude in C sharp minor, his
greater works, such as "Variations on
Theme by Chopin," have remained
obscured on account of their great
technical and Intellectual difficulties.
The theme above-mentioned ll the
famous eight-bar prelude in C minor
written by Chopin, a sort of ennobled
dirge, marvellously expressive of the
woes of hi* -Orbived Poland. Around
thi* theme Rachmaninoff has buil
twenty-two magnificent variations, all
expressive of the spirit of Chopin,
but transfused into the modern idioi
Like Rachmaninoff, Scriabine
also Russian. This creat innovator
died in 11*14 at the height of hi;
powers. Of all the great composers
past or present, none overthrew more
conventions or conceived more daring
dreams than he. At the time of hi*
deoth he was at work on a production
which was to require a chorus dressed in white and voiles, 1500 in number, a huge orchestra with many
novel instruments, and the "Clavi-
lux," an invention for throwing multifarious colors over the hall. One
of Scriabine's theories was that different sounds have corresponding
colors. Along with »uch innovations
incense was aU»» to be used, the whole
plan being to equilibrize the senses
and the spirit, or rather, to synchronize the senses with the spirit, the participation of which hy the audience
was to be called the "initiation into
the mysteries."
The Sonata Op. 80, which will be
played here by Mr. Anderson, along
with the Rachmaninoff variations, is
much the same as the above-mentioned work, representing the struggle of
the spirit to free itself from the
senses, and its final sublimation.
Other smaller pieces by Scriabine
and the G minor Ballade by Chopin
will complete the program.
Probably to moke them feel as
much at home as possible, the mem-
Ibers of the Vancouver Board of
Trade party on tour of the Interior
were greeted here with rainy weather.
The committee of the local board of
trade had not planned this, but so
welcome was the moisture that the
visitors were informed that they
could come again any time if they
would bring rain with them when it
was needed.
On the arrival of the train on Monday evening, with the two special cars
bearing the visitors, they were met
by a strong delegation of local board
of trade members and others, who assisted in giving them welcome. Mr.
T. R. Flett, C.P.R. superintedent.
hoarded the train at :he west end,
and travelled here with the party.
After getting thc matter of local and
C.P.R, time straightened out, in or-
iler to determine the correct time at
which they were to eat, the visitors
rOCeeded to get acquainted with the
city, and the local business men gen-
Given   Banquet
Shortly   after   seven   o'clock,   the
visitort were entertained at a banquet
at the K.P. Hall, given by tho local
board of trade. There were about
a hundred present in all, local men
turning out in strength to meet the
visitors. The banquet fare was supplied by Alex Hurry, of the White
Lunch, and that it proved ample and
quit*- satisfying was evident from the
appreciative remarks of the visitors.
W. H. Wilson, president of the local board of trade, was in the chair,
and when the mfeeHng ires called to
order informally, welcomed trie visitors to the city on behalf of the board,
and spoke in appreciation of the large
number of coast business men who
had made the sacrifice necessary to
make this, the second trip of its kind,

On Tuesday afternoon, the Liberal

honor of Mrs. J. II. King, the affair taking place at the K. P. Hull.
Musical numbers were contributed to
the program during the afternoon by
Mrs. F. M. MacPherson und Mrs.
Park consisting of both vocal and
instrumental numbers, and addresses
bearing .on the political situation at
the present time were given during
the afternoon by Mrs. F. B. Mile-.
and Mrs. H. A. McKowan. Mrs.
King also expressed her appreciation
of the friendly feeling and support
that the gathering exhibited. Refreshments were served, and the
gathering was characterized as u complete success, and most enjoyable to
the large number of ladies front the
city and district who attended.

leaves  few  places  with licenses  fo

officials   are   somewhat   puzzled,
fact, to know  just where these
tobllshments can be opened.
It is the policy of thc Liquor C
trol Board to grant no licenses
those points in , wet ridings which
voted dry, and this policy will appl
in the boundary riding. The city 0
Cranbrook, while in a wet territory,
has not been granted beer licenses
for this reason. Another policy of th
Liquor Board which will operate
against beer drinkers in Grand Forks-
Greenwood is that which bars the es
tahlishmenl of beer parlors along thc
international boundary. This rul
has kept bcer-by-the-glass out of all
towns within a few miles of the
boundary, regardless of the legal liquor conditions of the riding surrounding them. It may prevent the
tstabllshment of beer facilities in the
>ld town of Midway on the boundary
line, although it voted for beer. The
Liquor Board's attitude on this aspect
f tho liquor is that boundary towns
•should not be made into drinking re
iorts for United States residents a
diort distance away.
Grand Forks-Greenwood will he de
•lined legally wet shortly, but that it
twill be wet in actual practice is
doutitful. Only a few places in it
need hope for beer licenses. The

Tillie, Captured Here, Again
Filling Turn in the Circus Program
Accompanying the truant elephant,
Tillie, recently recaptured in the vicinity of this city, some of the-circus
men recently were in Spokane.
While there they gave out a state,
ment to one of the newspapers,
which, while it may be fairly correct
as regards thc elephants, is not exact-
ly a true reflection of the nature of
the country at large in which the elephants hove been roaming. There
are generalities which the uninformed might think refer to the entire
Kootenay district, whereas they fit
only the particular localities in which
the elephants hnve been at large.
The story the curcus men gave out
nt Spokane is as fallows:
Spokane.—Her  16 days' vacation
er, Tillie, thc 15-year-old, ton-and-
a-hnlf Sells-Floto elephant, is on her
wny to Eugene Ore., to be "back on
the job" today amusing kids and
grownup in the big top.
The truant animal, nervous, but
playful, nrrived at 9.30 from Cranbrook, B.C., over the Spokane. International railroad and was transferred
over thc Union Pacific in her special
baggage car for the Oregon city.
With the runaway were Zeck Terrell, a circus official; Jimmie Dooley,
her keeper and the man who finally
coaxed her back to good behavior,
anil Eddie Thomas and H. B. Clark,
assistant  keepers.
Ticket! for Tea
Tillie has already cost more than
her value to return to the fold and
thr bill is still growing. The ticket
for Tillie for her trip from Spokane
to Eugene cost $329.27. This was
paid in advance by Mr. Terrell. The
elephant uses a ticket for ten persons
and occupies the space alloted to

She wns shaking her head from
side to side when the train awaited
the arrival of custom officials. When
asked to speak to the reporter she
consented to give a couple of squaky

Jim Dooley said his charge was
perfectly peaceful now and would

by a bullet or hitting a snag, was

Tillie was actually captured three

had journeyed more than 50 miles
during the fortnight's A. W. O. L.
The Indians were credited with having trailed the beast.

"They are wonderful trailers,"
Dooley explained. "Where we had
to go was suro a wilderness," he con*
tinued. "Not a living soul had been
in those wilds. It took the Indians

trouble started. A day and a half

There are no telephones around that
place and as soon as we would get
some information about the elephant
it would take long enough to get it
relayed to let her get away.
The Indians are all right, but the
mistake we made was to offer that
$200 reward for each elephant captured. When the reward had been
paid the Indians got on a big drunk

"Charlie Ed. and Myrtle are fond

A number of Wardnerites motored
to Fernie on Sunday last to attend
the ball games scheduled to take
place on that date between the
Fernie and I«thbridge star teams,
the latter throwing a challenge to the
former for the Brewery Cup, held
at present by Fernie. The first
game (of the series of three games
planned) took place in the afternoon
and proved to be little more than n
pitchers' battle. Until thc seventh
inning, both teams were held scoreless, while only about two men renched third base, and very few made
either first or second. In the lntter
part of this fram, Fernie scored two
runs. In the eighth, Lethbridge
scored four runs and again Fernie
put over two. In this inning, Fernie
suffered! a great deal, the referee,
Hughes, from Blairmore, giving several close decisions against the miners,
so that a protest was filed by the
manager of the Fernie men, if necessary, at the close of the series. The
last inning proved more than exciting since the scores were tied, ln
this frame Lethbridge again scored
one run only, while the Fernie team,
by a tremendous rally, managed to
make the two scores necessary to win
the match, the score' reading finally
6-6 in their favor. Jnhren, of Fernie,
and   the   Lethbridge   hurler,   both
Eitched great games, and were ably
acked both by their catchers and
the balance of the team. The second
'game was scheduled to take place at
16.30 p.m., but during the second innings, (both of which were again
scoreless) a heavy storm came along,
and, as the rain descended in sheets
for the balance of the evening it was
deemd necessary to postpone the remaining two games until the next
day, Monday, when they would be
played if the weather cleared up sufficiently to allow them. "Scotty"
Mitchell took the pitcher's box for
the Fernie team during the second
game, while the Lethbridge pitcher

Mayor Roberts was also called upon, and extended an ofllcia! welcome
to the visitors. In doing so be took
occasion to point out the excellent
condition of tho city finances, and
the enviable commercial record of
the -city since the time of its establishment.
Visitors   Enjoy   Program
Quite a pretentious program of
music was given during the course of
the evening, both vocal and instrumental music, which was much enjoyed by the visitors, and which some
went as far as to Bay represented the
best they bad heard of its kind since
embarking on their tour. During the
banquet. Mrs. I'. M, MacPherson entertained wiih instrumental selections, following which, and interspersed between the short speeches,

an Instrumental .sulo. which like all

singing, and while thc visitors were
entertained with thc Kootenay song,

the opinion lhat there was an object

insurance companies had done in
building up the province, instancing
particularly the aftermath of the Fernie fire in 1908. Ile recalled several

ii ed to make to this city, mentioning
Me ira. It. 13. Doottlo, Fred Simpson
on,) A. II. Grace, as three of tho familiar figures of those days. In re-
gnrd t...the trip, he did not think il
should bo regarded as a sacrifice of
lime. It had been a revelation to
them, particularly their journey
through   the   Kootenays,    Rossland,
Trail, Nelson, Bonnington, Creston,
and now Moyie and Kiniberley, were
all showing signs of the improved
conditions, and ofl'erod groat encouragement In the establishment of new
business relations,
lie touched on Canada's position
as a paper producer, and told his
hearers that with the pulp resources
the country had, it was unlikely that
tiie I.S. could ever reach the volume
nf production lhat Canada now had.
II.C. was at present producing something like 500 tons of newsprint a
day, which would shortly be increased
to Tun tons, and he felt tbat ii would
only be a matter of time when this
part of the province came into the
pulp  and  paper  producing class.
Mr. Smith closed his few remarks
with a happy reference to the musical]
entertainment which had heen provided for their enjoyment, and which
had entirely captivated the visitors,
representing u program par excellence. These sentiments were embodied in a resolution of thanks tendered to the ladies assisting in the
program, which was moved hy Messrs,
Burke and Burde, and carried with a
man if est ation  of  real  enthusiasm.
The   meeting  concluded  with  tbe
singing of the National Anthem.
Visit To Kimberley
Tuesday morning the visitors were
taken by cars to Kimherley, almost
ail of Ihem braving the rainy and
threatening day. am) during tho
morning were given an inspection of
thi' Concentrator, whicb was of e;rcat

their wny on to Kimherley, where
they were piven a luncheon Oa guests
of the Kimberley Board of Trade,
which was presided over by R, K.
Crerar. chairman of the Kimberley
board. This was followed in turn by
an inspection of the Sullivan Mine,
which was no less an interestiiiR ex-
porience to mosl nf the visitors.
Returning in the afternoon, they
again boarded their special cars, nnd
went tni t" Fernie, from whence, af-

Since the Liberals took offlce in
l»2t, the speaker staled, the trade
balance had risen from an adverse
balance of $0,000,000 lo a balance
in our favor of $402,000,000. As for
the tariff, Dr. King stated that the
government bad "tinkered" with it
to the advantage of the masses
through reducing the duty on machinery in use in the agricultural, timber,
mining and fishing industries, which
he claimed »t the present time were
in a flourishing condition, largely
due to this reduction.
Referring to the Robb budget, the;
speaker said that at the cud of tbe
fiscal year there wns a balance of
$;S2,U00,00U on the right side of the
ledger. Having this balance, it was
decided to institute a system of rural
credits, which passed the House and
the Senate, hut did not receive the
signature of the Governor-General.
This he blamed on Mr. Arthur Meighen, who, he claimed, swept aside in
a moment rules which had been in
practice for years.
Rile of Smuggling
Coming to the Old Age Pension
Bill, Dr. King stated this was a plank
of lhe Liberal platform at their convention in 1019, and during the last
session, as acting minister of labor,
he bad had lhe pleasure of fathering
the bill. He said tbat Hon. 11. H.
Steven.- and other prominent men in
the Conservative ranks took Lhe position that the hill was no good, as
the provincial premiers should be consulted prior to its being put through
the House.
Coming to the customs scandal.
Dr. Kinj: stated that smuggling had
heen jroiug on for a number of years,
and had been accelerated during the
past couple of years through the use
of high powered ears and boats and
the   paved   roads   into   the   United

Stevens had used 'his report as a
foundation on which his charges were
laid  in   the  House.
Mr. Fisher referred to the protection policy of Mr. Meighen, claiming
thai Quebec was against protection
because they voted for the Robb bud-
got He spoke of the anti-comhine
legislation, mentioning the recent
fruit combine case, and stated that
Mr. Stevens, hy making the charge
of the customs scandal on thc floor
,.f the House, gave warning to witnesses ami culprits alike that they
were liable for action and they had
a chance to escape from the country
before action could bc taken against
them. Ile said nothing had been

THK opening presentation ol the Liberal position
in the present campaign from the platform in
this city was generally considered a disappointment
ity those attending their meeting last week-end. A

Dr, King must surely realize thai his claim fur
support again al this time will have to extend further than an espousal of the responsibility for the
presentation of lhe uld age pensions measure.   However wot ih}   tlif sentiment that hill embodied hi

ii crumbles When thc very motive with wliich the
measure   was   introduced   is  called  into  question,
ill-conceived at it was, it had no chance for a healthy
hnth.   The provinces were to he saddled with a responsibility   the)   were noi  consulted on,  with no
assurance they would accept the principle of the
certainty that some of the pro-
s would never entertain il. While
was nol feasible to consult them

Jther measure, bul actually said the Liberals were

a  falling away of
supporter of McKenzie King, and Liberal policies,
and as a member of the late government thut is now
the issue for tbe electors, lie must stand or fall as
a member of the cabinet which also harbored a minister who was charged directly with being derelict in
his duty. Dr. King cannot detach himself from that
government now and stand in East Kootenay apart
trom the customs scandal. It" he supports the government tbat is proved to have condoned public misdemeanors in one of its departments, is it not axiomatic that he cannot hope to escape culpability in
tlte verdict rendered hy the electors at large on that
government ?
Neither was lion. Mr. Sloan any too happy iu
his choice of an onslaught on the senate as one of
the big points in his address. Dr. King's father is
one ot the most venerable members of that body,
and to have il branded as incapable of considering
the affairs of the nation entrusted to it impartially
carries with it an implication that Dr, King cannot
contemplate very happily.
Possibly other speakers will bring n message
of better substance for the Liberals to embrace than
lias been heard here yet. Certainly tlie thinking
members of the party will be disappointed in what
they have heard up to now.

the Liberal party in Canada, just as the British representation of the party hearing the same label is
at present only a mere remnant of its strength
of a few years ago. The pendulum started to swing
hack last year to assure for the country the promise
of stable government for lhe next few years, and
there is nothing to indicate lhat it lias yet reached
lhe height of il> stroke. Dr. Rutledge has been received in all parts of tlie riding with a warmth thai
indicates he is going to command a far greater measure of support than lie could expect last year, and
especially does this seem true at the points where
last year Dr. King, through different circumstances
now entirely absent, secured substantial majorities.
Added to which is the fact that there is an obvious distrust abroad of what the Liberals profess
at this time as their party platform, Thev are fighting as they back clown grade, but it will not avail
them. The only question seems to he what figure
the Conservative majority is likely to reach.

TIM''. Herald has received a copy of the journal
being issued hy the B.C, Native Sous, entitled
"The Canadian," published in Vancouver. This copy
of the issue contains an interesting review of the
matters dealt witli liy the Native Sons at their recent convention, and also deals very extensively with
the ultra-Canadian aspect of the constitutional question wliich has come into prominence at this time
as ,-ni election issue. It presents vory thoroughly
the side of the discussion which led to tbe Native
Sous going on record as an organization on the
question. There is, perhaps, room for an opinion
as to whether the question as to Canada's status
really docs enter into the situation at the present
time, and it is worthy of note that the election will
not decide tbis one way or tlie other. Thc result
may determine, however, whether Premier Meighen
correctly guaged lhe temper of the country in general as to whether he was the logical man to earn-
on at that particular juncture or not.

Former   Mini*t-rr   Sp*akii
Hun. w. H. Motherwell, introducing himself tn a new audience,
proved a very interest inn speaker,
He was ol the opinion that the eus-
toms scandal and the constitutional
question would lie eliminated from
tho campaign, leaving the Liberal
legislative program the main issue.
Referring tc his visit in this district,
lie stated that llu- Crow'i Nest Pass

to the prairie man. These fixed by
statute the maximum rates to he
charged on grain, flour and other articles, ami were now extended to
He touched on the sentimental aspects of the old age pension question,
and scored Mr. .Meighen and the
.senate for their antipathy tii the
measure. It had heen endorsed by
the trades and lahor council, and once
the principle was given expression to,
it would only he a matter of time before the shading could he changed
to suit the conditions. He charged
that Mr. Moighen knew perfectly
well thnt the senate would kill the
bill, and the Conservatives bad offered no means of Improving it. He
claimed that the members of the senate, "substantial pensioners themselves," should have "opened their
hearts to those less fortunate."
Thoie  Progreuivtt*
The   long  Huit  of   the  opposition,
Mr. Motherwell said, was stable government; but the question, ils Mr.
Motherwell humorously put it, wus
"Who is to own the stable?" He decried the disparagements being used
in connection with the Liberal alliance with the Progressives, "men
with kindred views" or "Liberals in
a hurry," and incidentally he claimed
that Mr. Meighen and Mr. (Juthrie
had also used every etfort to get the
support from the Progressives. Reverting again to the old age pension
hill, he unhesitatingly praised Dr.
King's handling of the bill in the
house, and urged that it was better
to start in this way wilh Hie thin edge
of the legislative wedge rather than
to huve nothing done ut ull.
It hud been the Liberal policy to
make possible cheaper implements, so
as to lessen the expenses of production, und these duties were never so
low as nt present. The prniries and
H.C, he claimed, hud common interests and there should be only one
west. The way was being opened
for better inter-provincial relations,
and it wus being found thut the re-
Miuree>. and needs of the prairie provinces nnd B.C, were the Counterpart of each other. As to the Robb
budget and its benefits to the people
in the west, Mr, Motherwell said emphatically that if the people "need
more of it, they must get it from
Robb." Mr. Motherwell claimed that
Hie policies of McKenzie King hud
been in the best interests of western
Canada, instancing his endorsement
of the Hudson Hay railway project,
the restoration of the Crow's Nent
Puss rates and the restoration of low
rates on grain traffic for the coast.
The abolition of the statutory rates
by Mr. Meighen in 1919 had cost the
west twenty-five million dollurs. Referring to the action of the senute in
refusing to assent to some of the
Liberal legislation, he did not favor
(lie abolition of that body, hut feared
tbat some method to curb their power
would have to be effected, such as is
now in ell'ect in BHtuin in regurd to
the upper chambor, where a measure
passing three limes lieforo the commons becomes law.
Takes Meighen To Tftik
Mr. Motherwell criticized Mr.
Meighen's attitude on the question of
Canada engaging in war, claiming
that the hitter's "Ready, Aye Ready"
speech at the time of the difficulties
With Turkey was questionable. Now
he claimed Mr. Meighen was adopting
a different attitude—to cull parliament first. Mr, Motherwell defended the aetion of the Liberal government with the development of the
C.N.R., and stated that the attitude
of the Conservatives in the senate
in opposing the C.N.R. branch line
policy in Saskatchewan had resulted
in jockeying the National line otV the
mup und uilowing the C.P.R. to go
in and get the business.
Dealing with the constitutional
question, Mr. Motherwell was careful
not to uttach the hiame to the gover-
nor-genernl, but did place it on Mr.
Meighen for the advice wrongfully
tendered. The McKenzie King government, he cluimed, had not been
eensured until ufter it wus in opposition. Mr. King hud informed the
governor-general thut his government, could no longer carry on with
dignity und propriety, und Mr. Meighen had thereupon informed the gov-
amor-general thut he wus able to
form n government, when, in
point of fact, he had met a technical
defeat within three hours, und hud
been defeated on the third day in u
vote of confidence, on the grounds
thut it hud not been a legally constituted government. The Meighen
government, Mr. Motherwell stated,
"just died in the shell," it was in
fact "never properly hatched." Mr.
Meighen's method of ending the session was also criticized.
The  Cuitomi   Investigation
Touching on the customs senndul,
the former minister said there was un
intense scandal. He charged the Conservatives hud thrown up a smoke
screen on this question, but there
would never have been any investigation if the Liberals had not opened
a way and tuken up thc evidence. Preparations for investigation hnd been

A Cordial Invitation Is Extended To All Electors To Be

time the government was ready to
launch an Investigation, Mr. Stevens
"climbed on to our hand wagon and
said, I want to drive this caravan."
The result of the methods which had
been employed and lhe way in wliich
Mr, Stevens hud used his information,
was that the smugglers had all tuken
cover and much information could
not he got at. Mr. Motherwell closed
his address with an appeal for a fuller bond of friendship between li. C.
and the prairies.
Eulogizes Dr. King
Mr. Farris, having arrived from
Kimberley, took tho platform as the
last speaker und opened his address
with a eulogy of Dr. King, whom he
hud known for many years. He paid
tribute to him both as a member for
this district and a citizen. Laying all
politics asido, Mr. Furris felt that
Liberals and Conservatives alike
would feel regret if Dr. King should
he defeated. Ile also spoke of the
support Dr. King had given the old
age pensions in the house, and charged that the Conservatives by nol condemning the Senate hud thereby encouraged them in the destruction of
this measure. He considered Dr.
King's connection with the bill was
tho outstanding work of his career,
und stated that only one interpretation could be placed on it if Dr. King
were defeated, There was no single
issue in this riding thut trnnscended
this one, and if there wus any relation between the public conduct nnd
endorsement by the electors, Dr. King
surely deserved to again represent
Kast Kootenay.
As to the customs senndul, Mr.
Farris asked how it could he conceived that Dr. King was culpably responsible for conditions us they had
heen found in this department? He
Urged the electors not to allow their
attention to he tuken off the big is-
*ues, Duguld Donughy, who wus also

II, Stevens, hud heard ull the evidence
ami had not gone buck to Vancouver
with any blush of shame, bul had left
a safe seat in North Vancouver to
fight 11. H. Stevens on the customs
scandal. Mr. Farris* advice to the electors here was to vote on the big
Ibsuqb which would effect them for
four or five yeurs, and let Donaghy
and Stevens fight out the other mutter in  Vancouver.
Not Legally a Govt.
Mr, Farris criticized Mr. Meighen's
attitude in assuming the reins of the
government after the resignation of
the Liberals, claiming that there was
nothing in history to compare with
the "shadow cabinet" of Mr. Meighen. He disclaimed the charges mude
of Liberal disloyulty, and while endorsing the contention that "the King
can do no wrong," he took the position that Mr. Meighen hnd heen at
fault in tendering to the governor-
general the wrong udvice. Legislation ready to become law had been
destroyed and estimates had heen left
untouched, whereas the necessary
business could have been finished in
two days. As it was, all expenditures
at present were being carried on under the issue of governor-general's
warrants, and public works all over
the country were at a standstill.
He criticized Meighen's predictions
and calamitous suggestions last fall,
and stated the country was now realizing the unusual houyancy and better conditions. The Robb budget had
helped to lift thc burden of taxes,
and the question for Bast Kootenay
was whether to vote for Dr. King and
a continuance of the Robb budget, or
for Dr. Rutledge and no more Robb
budgets. The Liberal theory of how
the tariff had worked out in regard
to Ford cars was instanced by Mr.
Furris by the statement that from the
$05.00 duty per car, six million dollars in profits had heen gouged by
Ford out of the people's money. The
Liberals hud promised a tariff commission to investigate all such cases.
No  Question   of   Loyalty
Dealing with the Robb budget, Mr.
Farris gave instances where it was
considered that there were tangible
evidences of its benefit to the people.
He closed his address by emphasizing
the loyalty of the Liberal party to
British ties, instancing the growth of
British trade with Canada under the
Liberal administration and the growth
of the principle of British preference. Talk of annexntion he considered un insult to Canudiun manhood, but while they always fell
pride in the growth and development
of Canada, they should not be afraid
to trade with the United States.
The meeting closed with the singing of the Nutional Anthem.

Without going fully into the his

the state of affairs on Sir Gurnet
Wolseley's arrival, it is necessary to
glance at previous matters which hud

the Gold ('oast to u pitiable state of
Get Out of Hand
From 1807 to 1827 the country
adjacent to British ports and trading'
stations waa overrun continually by
then sued for pence, renouncing all
rights to homage from Denkeru, As-
sin and other formerly subject tribes.
The treaty of. peace was not finally
arranged, however, till 1831, when
it was signed by Governor Maclean,
who had been sent out by a company of merchants, to whom the public establishments of tho Gold Coast
bud been transferred by the Imperial
Government on hearing of Sir ('buries
Mucurthy's disastrous action ami
Governor Maclean's administration
was successful, but in justice to bis
less fortunate successors, it should be
borne in mind that he assumed office immediately after the Ashantis
had received a severe lesson from the
action of the Imperial Government,
and also that it is far easier to act
as agent to a trading company thnn
it is to represent the Government of
Great Britain.
Another Outbreak
In 1843, it huving been ascertained
that the existing authorities favored
the slave trade, the Crown re-assumed
the charge of the stations on the
Gold Coast. In IS52 the Imperial
government approved of a poll-tax
being levied on the tribes of the Protectorate, "In consideration of the
advantage of British protection;" nnd
about this time, the lesson of lH2t!
being apparently forgotten, the Ash-
antes recommenced a course of vexations and insulting conduct, which
was met with the only argument they
could appreciate—force.
In 1 Stilt an unfortunate expedition
advanced to the I'rah Kiver, iu order that the Fantis might regain confidence in British protect imi. After
remaining for five months inactive
on the river bank, the guns were
buried, stores and ammunition destroyed and more than half the force
were  sick.
About this time Dutch and British
settlements being interspersed, continual quarrels amongst the native*
arose, und the two powers, for the
convenience of maintaining pence
carried out mi January 1st, 18(18, ar
exchange of territory. In the e«
change the natives were not consulted, and in the convention duted 5th
of Murch, 18(17, the whole of the
country eust of Sweet Kiver up to
the Ashunti frontier is spoken of as
"Her Majesty's possessions."
Two miles to the westward of the
Sweet River is Elmnia, inhabited by
a small tribe which peoples also the
surrounding villages. For more than
half a century, while Ashantis and
Funtis were fighting, the relations of
the Dutch und Kliuinese continued mi
the most friendly footing.

The stability afforded the brewing industry in
British Columbia by the legal, above-hoard and

Molly .Shannon, university student,
learns from Mrs. Parker, her former
landlady, that the money which enabled her to attend her father's funeral wus Riven by Stephen Renfro,
who has since deserted her for another. Humiliated, Molly has had
her hair shorn, and sold it, and now
she has offered io sell blood t
hospital patient for whom an injection has been ordered. Molly, desperate after Renfro's disappearance
was rescued from the river by Gregory Cochran, bachelor lawyer.
The courtesy and ease with which
the son of the house was handing
her her glass of iced tea was as in
bred as the keen blue of his eyes ot
the effect of massiveness when h<
moved. A vision of the noisy, crowded, ill-mannered home to which she
must soon return obtruded itself of a
sudden, and without realizing thut
she did so she sighed.
'What's that for?" Cochran asked,
with a smile. His mother had boen
called out of the room, and he
brought his own glass of tea and set
it on a corner of thc mantel a half
dozen feet from Molly's chair. He
left it to grow warm, in taet, while
ho stood looking down thoughtfully
at his guest.
"I was just wondering," she admitted, "how many generations it
would require to make a person of
quality out of a .Shannon . , . ."
He laughed, "Whatever put such
an idea into your head?"
"Oh, all this." She indicated the
room, the house. "You — your
mother . , . "
Cochran shifted hit* position at the
mantel and took up hts glass of tea,
"Lows' Chapel, that's the name of
your norm?, isn't it? It hns a nice
ring—peaceful,   industrious,   thrifty
bers and thieves'.1" lie interrupted
the blond and explosive youne woman to ask again in his most humorously lelliiitf drawl.
Before anyone could answer—if
there was such an inclination—Mrs.
Susan Renfro moved quickly toward Cochran with outstretched
hands. "Of course, our first call
would be for you and dear Mrs. Cochran," she declared, with a iluirm-
inR glance of deference at the older
woman. "Stephen says we're quite
made—coming down here in this heat,
but I think there's nowhere one can
be so comfortable in hot weather as
in one's own home. I'm sure you'll
bear me out  in  tliat,  Mrs.   Cochran

backbone nf the state'!"
"You're poking fun at campaign
orators, Miss Molly."
'N-no, but when one reads of
things like this late oil scandal—
well. I had heard the handsome
Senator declaim so eloquently about
love of country nnd oil that. . ," She
threw out her hands in an expressive
Cochran nodded. "Such lapses on
the part of public servants do rather
take the edge off one's patriotism,
don't thpy?"
"T suppose that's it- You see"—
ho tried to make herself Intelligible
—"I've always loved my state—loved its hugeness, its virility, its colorful history. When we studied about
it in school, I used to picture it to
myself like n fair white knight—only
tho knight was mounted on a bucking
broncho instead of a charger, with a
lasso over the saddle horn and a
bowie knife in lieu of a sword"
Cochran was smiting. "I'm afraid
your fuir knight was in danger of
falling among robbers and thieves,"
he snid.
Where ho stood, his hack was toward the dfior into the hall, and his
breadth of bulk cut off Molly's view
also In that direction. In consequence
they both started a little when an
indolent, deep drawl—familiarly indolent—took up and echoed the last

Cochran glanced over his shoulder
—then quickly at Hotly, who, aftei
the first movement of surprise, had
not looked up. The next instant he
turned to greet the newly arrived
His mother was just coming back
into the room. At her side wa* 9
young and hnpdspmely gowned woman—blond, plump, a trifle explosive, if the small torrent of vivacious
chatter which she was aiming at Mrs.
Cochran could be taken as characteristic. She was the girl Molly had
seen in the box.
A step or so behind them was Stephen Renfro—handsome, leisurely,
better tailored even than of old. He
advanced into the room with that
graceful admixture of langour and
naive insolence which he liked b<
te affect.   "Wkm'm talkiar **»%* reb-
She was fairly launched
which  would have done  service f-
the next- two hours had not Cochm
stepped asside to present Molly, wli
hud  remained  until  that  moment to
all intents and purposes concealed.
Renfro, who was coming up to
speak to Cochran, let his hand drop
rather precipitately as Molly's name
was mentioned. He recovered almost immediately, though, his usual
Bang froid, and stood taking in the
scene with full appreciation of its
dramatic potentialities. His wife
stared frankly at Molly's simple
gown, said something more or less
polite, antl— transferred her entire
attention again to her host. Rondo
bowed in turn, bul did not, as he had
apparently first intended, offer hi
hand. Mrs. Cochran had gone buck
to the tea table, where fresh BUppli
wero being brought in. Susan still
monopolized the son. There wus
just one thing for Renfro to do, nod
he did it as gracefully us possible,
He drew up 11 chair and seated liini
self near Molly, loaned toward her- —
tho humorous quirk to the left corner
of his mouth very noticeable. "And
thus—we meet again?" lie murmured
in the most approved moek-pjdodtjn-
matic fashion.
Molly studied him for a moment or
two in silince before she suid, "Yes.
It seems your returns ure '-is sudden
and—us unheralded—as your departures,"
"Bravo!" he laughed, applauding
softly. "Not half bad, really ....
By the way"—he looked amusedly
from her to Cochran und lifted in-1
quiring eyebrows—"my little Molly
has certainly been making hay in
the interim!"
Molly was saved the necessity of
a reply by Cochran's joining their.
Released from attendance on ftf-W.
Susan, he drew up a chair and settled himself in it with whnt would
have been in a less punctilious man
a sigh of deliverance.
"You haven't told me yet about
the robbers and thieves," Renfro reminded him, turning from Molly tu
let his gaze wander curiously ovei
the room. "Have you been having n
Cochran gave him an odd look;
there was more even than the usual
discrepancy between his slow smile
and the shrewd blue lightning of his
eyes. "Xo, I wus only ugreeing with
Miss Shnnnon here that our state
seems to he falling among robbers
and thieves."
Renfro leaned forward—almost
forgot his habitual conchnlance.
"Ah, that's exactly what I wanted
to talk to you about," he declared
with satisfaction.    "It rests with us
younger men . . ."
lie broke off, frowning, as his
wife struck in unexpectedly and 1
shade too eagerly from the tea table:
"Stephen's to go in for politics, .>ou
know. I said nothin gcould be ho| -
pier than for him and drt'g to gel
together and talk things over . . "
"Just so." Renfro possessed himself aR-ain of the conversational reins.
"With our influence and backing*'—
the way he spoke already of :'our
backing" was entirely typical—"and
your prestige, why—we could run
this state pretty much to suifit our-
elves, eh?"
There was a slight pause. He
ooked expectantly ut Cochran, whose
face, ever slow to reflect his thought-,
were now its most non-committal
mask. "Xo doubt we could," he eon
ceded finally.
A clock chimed the hour of six,
and Molly rose. Six-fifteen was the
dinner hour nt the dormitory. She
felt Renfro's amused irritated eyes |
on her—irritated because he had not'
quite made his point—as she went
over to say good-bye to Mrs. Cochran. '■
She knew, too, that his wife was up-'
praising contemptuously every item
of her inexpensive, home-made apparel.
Neither circumstances troubled her.
during the brief scene, her mind had
been busy with comparisons. She had
never seen Stephen Renfro for what
he actually was until he rashly set;
himself up beside Gregory Cochran.;

was accompanying her to the door.

visited this city tho early purt of the
week, with all of whom the Heruld
cume in contact, and ull of whom hud
a warm regard for this district und
the possibilities it presented. F. J.
Hurd, managing director of tho Vancouver Province, was one of the visitors, nnd there wus also Chas. Sutherland, of the Province stuif, nnd J. E.
Norcross, editor-in-chief of the Vancouver Daily Star. Ronald Kenvyn,

The   Delany   &   Sinclair  window
took on a very attractive appearance
this   week,   a   most   valuable    display of coyote, lynx and cougar skins
being on display.    The collection of
skins was  prepared  for tanning by j
Mr.  C.  B. Garrett, and will doubtless be seen  again  at the  fall fair ,
in the sportsmen's exhibit—lynx, eou-
gar,  kit  cougar,  brown  beur,  black
bear,  mountain  goat,  etc.     Among'
other specimens  of   forest life wns .
also to be seen Myrtle, one of the
Sells-Floto circus elephants which has ;
been  missing for some time.    It is
worth while taking the trouble to see
the window if for nothing else thun
to see the elephant. ]
