Cianbrook lacrosse team is determined
to try and win the Levasseur cup, and if
tbey are not successful it is certain that
they will have done their best.
A football match, Pernie vs. Cianbrook will be the second event
in the morning. Pernie may win ami of

of our boys to let them win ''However,
The Herald feels sure that to wiu they

Here is the latest conundrum in town:
Why is it that 10 J. Peltier lias the advantage over every other merchant in
Cranbrook? Because he gets a Bonus
for delivering his goods.
Here is a story that is not too bad. A
baby was born iu a certain Cranbrook
family, ami the mother was one who
generally patronizes eastern .stores for
everything lu the way of dry gcoda. Oue
afternoon lhe lady had two or three
callers, and naturally, nfter showing the
baby, out came dainty dresses, a cloak,
liny slippers, etc. To each enquiry as
lo where an article had been purchased,
ibe reply invariably was, "At Eaton's,"
A little tot about four years old, the
daughter of one of the callers, had been
an interested listener, as well as a great
admirer of the baby. Looking up nt the
lady of the house, she asked iu a most
innocent way, "Mrs. , did you get
the baby at Katun's, too?"

Last .Saturday night a man who had
looked upon tbe wine when it wus red,
or sume other intoxicant, came meandering across Baker street toward McFar-
laue's barber shop. Just as he approached the walk, he looked up aud
saw that he was standing beneath Mc-
Porlane'a leaning barber pole. Jumping
lu one side, he said to a party standing
near, ''Say, Mister, just had narrow
scape. Pole nearly fell ou me," Then
turning, expecting to see the pole lying
in the street, be was annoyed,to find it
just the same. Ga/.lng at it a few moments, be staggered down the street,

The Nelson News says that the comments ol visitors on tbe notices respecting expectorating on the sidewalks are
amusing. A prospector, who bad just
arrived in town, after reading oue of the
notices, was heard to remark;
"This town is getting too particular for me. I was here belore there
were any sidewalks to spit on. Next
thing a man will have to get a hair cut
aud shave, and have a certificate of good
character belore they'll let him in."
Here is a story about Jerry Boyce of
High River, who is well known lo ninny
in this district, as told by the Kye
Opeuer of that town:
As is well known, Jerry Boyce is a
man of Infinite resource,    At his hotel
at High River last Friday there was an
awlul crowd for dinner, and of course
there was fish. The guests weie so numerous tluu tluy that tbe fish ran out. Tbe
dining room girl skipped into thc
kitchen iu a great slate aud asked Jerry
what she should do with the diners at a
certain table who were sure to call for
fish. "Cm, lemiiie see. Vou go tu
tbe lirst man ami wheu you're calling off
the feature, you say, 'Roast beef, roust
mutton, roast lamb, roast pork, stewed
beef, heart and dead fish.' "
The dining room girl followed instructions to lhe letter.
"What was that last one?" queried
the guest.
"Head fish."
"Ugh!   Gimme some pork."
Not a man would order fish. They
thought it must be decomposed, On
reflection, when it was too late, it occurred to them lhat a fish is seldom
served alive in a first class hotel.

With the growth of the lown comes

An Interesting Trip to the Boundary Alosf
the New Road.
The Herald editor made a hurried Irip
to the Boundary a short time ago. along
the line of the uew road. Drtviug from
Riko, he spent the night at Fred Roo's
place, which is just one aud one-half
miles north of the boundary line, and
oue of the prettiest places to b. found tn
British Columbia. There are falls where
the water drops 401 fret aud flows within a stone's throw of the ho el. A nicer
place to go for an ouling cannot be
found, and Roo's hole! is one of the best
to be found iu the district, since a man
can get a fine bed and three meats a day
that would put llesh on a gate post. Mr.
Rod, the proprietor, is the same jolly
chap he was when looking after Smith's
dining cars 011 the Crow, aud rural life
seems to agree with him. He bas the
hotel and a large store, aud what ia
more, ibe good will aud respect of everybody iu lhat locality. Nothing is too
good for a Cranbrook man wbo visits
that place, and if a man wants a nice
trip let him drive from Elko to Roos
ville. then go to Gateway, Crows Neat,
Baiu's lake and back to Elko. It will
do him good and be will see sume fine
country and lots of attractive scenery.
It Will Be Given Next Monday on the
Steamer North Slsr.
The long looked for excursion to Wasa
has been arranged by Captain Armstrong
of lhe steamer North Star, and it will be
given next Monday. For the people iu
Cranbrook aud this portion of tbe district this means a glorious opportunity
for enjoying a steamboat ride on one of
lhe nest river steamboats in the province.
Captain Armstrong, who is in charge of
the excursion, is known far aud wide as
nn sble and cautious river man, and he
is taking special pains with tbis event to
make it a grand success in every way.
Those who have visited Wasa appreciate
its beauties, ami the joy of the trip.
There is not a nicer one to be found in
this part of the country, and those who
take advantage of this chance wll) never
have reason to regret it.
Tbe boat will leave Fort Steele at 10
o clock next Munday|morning.£Arrange-
menls have been made with Geary &
Doyle for teams to leave Cranbrook at
7:311, so lhat the crowd will reach Steele
in ample time. Ou the return trip tbe
boat will arrive at Steele at 7 p.m. and
the teams will deliver the Craubrook
people home at 9 p.m. This schedule

The Nelson  Grand   Jury  Is Complalnlnf of
Fernie Justice.
Re Gaol*—We visited the gaol and
found thirty-two prisoners, about half of
whom came from Pernie, in Bast Kootenay, and although we were unable iu
the time at our disposal, and the distance
of Penile from Nelsou. to gather exact
facts, we are uf the opinion that a condition of things exists in Uie local justiciary in Fernie, to warrant an invest iga-
tluu by the attorney geuerul's department without delay.
The foregoing is a clause which ap-
pears iu the presentment of the grand
jjry at the Nelson nsslieSi which was
made ou Thursday afteruoou. Just
what it means is left largely to the imagination of lhe reader, as everything iu
the way of details is lacking, hut upon
its face it would appear tha*. the manner
iu which ' justice" bas been administered iu Peruie has beeu to unsatisfactory
at least to the members of the grand
jury is a matter which can only be determined by a duly constituted commission of enquiry, but now that the matter
has been thus passed upon by the Grand
jury, it becomes ibe obvious duty l.i the
attorney general, in justice to ihe men
whose reputations are clouded by tbe insinuations contained in the above •■n*
graph, to see that tbe commission for
the enquiry issues without delay,
If, as it has been Intimated 111 Nelson,
some money judiciously placed, is 1
more potent factor iu determining cases
in Peruie than iiuv other, the BOOnei the
f.ici is proven and Uu* guilty punished,
the better. Hut it must not be saiumed,
without trial, that tbe local justiciary is
blameworthy,    The stories of monetary
influence may be wholly without lounda*
tion, and even the seemingly lucobalt**
tent sentences, which   it   is Said Cfttued
the members of the Nelson grand jury

The above is from the Ull issue cf tbe
Fernie Free Press. It is news tn this
part of the district and The Herald is at
a loss to understand ibe meaning of the
declaratiou made by the grand jury jit
Nelson. "Vet. in this case, as la lhe
matter of the license commissioners, we
believe the best way ami the fairest way

Good for McPhillips. British Columbia

deal. It is impossible to coerce him or
coax him. He is of the opinion that the

The day has gone by when British Columbia should give principalities tc railway companies for building roads. The
Canadian Northern contract with lhe
government shows the Italian ham) o

government is giving millions, and yel
there is not a clause in the whole contract that any business man would accept as a fair deal to both parties—it is
all for the railway company.

Report On C. P. R. Coal.
Maryavlle Tribune
[Ottawa, AprO eg —The minister of
ihe Interior has submitted to Parliament the report of Colonel Taylor, of
Pittsburg, who, at Mr. Sifton's request,
examined last summer tbe Crow's Neat
Pais Coal company's Held In order lo
determine the best place to select tlie
50,000 acres of coal lands to which the
government Is entitled, such lands to
be of an average value of the entire
coalfield. The expert made a careful
examination of the coal developed at
the mines of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal company at Michel Creek, Coai
Creek, aud Morrissey Creek, anil also
examined It where developed by the C
P.E, company on Michel Creek, near
Marten Creek. Prom the development
now made he judges the best part of
litis coaliOlililiotli In regard to thickness
of seams and ease with which they may
be worked), lies between Michel Creek,
where Marten Creek enters It, and
Morrissey Creek, where Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company are now operating
their mines.
He recommends . "That all the coal
lying between Morrissey Creek and
the outcropping of the seams on Lodge-
pole Creek, be selected, and that a
dividing line be drawn frcm a point at 1
the junction of the north atd south
branch of Morrissey Creek near where-
present openings are being made by
the Crows Nest Pass Coal company;
from this point due north until It Intersects with a line running east and
west through the most southern side of
the property, now owned by the Crow's.
Nest Pass Coal company on Marten
Creek, and that the gteater pan of the
60,000 acres be selected to the east and
south of these two linen. With a proper
division made of the coal selected as
above described at Morrissey Creek
there might be two separate operations
made In ihi*. cicek, one ol which ccu'u
operate in the territory directly south
of the creek, and the other could worli
In the territory east and north. Tht
uext available place would be on Michel
Creek aud Marten Creek. This territory could be_so divided as to accommodate two operations. These are tl'i
only two available places for opera
lions, that I saw, and I would classify li,
relative merits the operation on Morrissey Creek as No. 1, and that on
Marten Creek and Mictiel Creek as No,
'£. In recommending tbe selection of a
continuous territory from Morrissey
Creek to Michel Creek I had In iny mlud
llie fact that If a smaller Held were
selected at Morrissey Creek and another similar held at Michel Creek and
Marten Creek, that the intervening
territory between these two Balds
would be worthless, as it would be lu-
accessible from any other points.
And 1 am of the opinion that the centre
of tbe field lying between the two
points above mentioned will be found
lo contain the best coal, Tbe distance
across the Held measured between these
two points is but nine or ten miles, anil
It is perfectly practicable to mine hall
way from each aide. That would give
a maximum underground haulage ot
the coal of four or live miles, which Ik
uot au Impractlcible distance. I wish
to especially recommend to yon the
selection of thc Held at Morrissey Creek
as ttie present developments Indicate
that the coal Is here at Its maximum
tnlckuesB, and lies In thc mountain in
such a way that It can be economically
moved aud operated, and there will be
twj main lines of railway easily accessible from this point."
A Secret.
A Wonderful District.
Marysvllle Tribune.
A district which ha**, not only coal,
iron and mineral, to buck It up, but also
timber and agricultural industries, a
magnlllcent climate and good people In
ll Is needed iu a lucky district. Such a
district Is South Kast Kootenay. Within the limits of tbis section we have
coal, yes coal *'to burn", thousands and
thousands of acres of coal. We have
limber, many thousands of acres of
timber. We have mines, among others
thc St. Rugene which has perhaps the
largest deposit of sliver lead ore on the
North American continent. The North
Star another silver lead properly ofgreat
mint and a steady dividend payer. Ttie
Sullivan another silver lead property
with 860,000 tons of ore blocked out and
which Is now preparing to treat Us own
ore and Is building a smelter for that
purpose at our own town of Marysvllle.
We have agricultural and ranching
lands In various parts ofthe district.
The Valley of the Kooienay river la
doited from its source lo the boun'lry
line willi farms which would be a credit
to any country, The St. Marys pralr'e
and thc upper St, Marys countTy are
a'so good farming sections and to Is ihe
conn y around the towns of Cranbrook
and Marysvllle.
A country with all these natural advantages cannot stay iu the background
long. Capital is looking for countries
ihat have a prosperous future before
tbem and South Gist Kootenay Is without a shadow of a doubt one of these.
UuUlte many other mining countries,
South I'Ust Kootenay Is not a country
with only one resource as has been
shown above.
Another point in which our district Is
superior to many others Is In the matter of its natural advantages for manufacturing, At many points In the district the cheapest kind of power,
water, can be used and where this advantage does not exist coal and coke
n be obtained more cheaply than In
other sections owing to our huge coal
Hence, as we have said before and
shall say again, South East Kooienay ls
a good country to tie np to. We have
tied up to it and we have never regret
ted It.

The Lumber Combine.
Marysvllle Tribune
The Rosa'and Miner says : Recent
arrivals in Rissland from East Kootenay are responsible for the statement
that the big lumber combination which
has been projected for some months is
uow completed. Archie Leltch, the
Craubrook lumber magnate, having
reached home alter a lengthy visit In
the eiist, during which the final steps
In the amalgamation were taken. The
combination includes Ave of the largest
mills In Kist Kootenav, and report has
It that tbe combination has secured almost Invaluable privileges In form of a
tlve year contract to supply the Canadian Pacific wltb material and cutting
concession on railroad reserve for an
equal period. The latter feature will
permit of lumbering operations on
ground that Is covered with the most
magnificent timber in the country, but
which has aa yet been untouched by the
logging camps.
Negotiations looking to the formation
of such a combination have be; 11 u-ulcr
.. ay for some Ume, in fact, It Is well
known that the principal promoters
have had the scheme In mind for a vear
or more. The lumber induttrv In Bast
Kootenay h as assumed such proportions
as to necessitate the employment of
large capital, and the competition
engendc red among the big plants began
to b.; felt, al though the present year Is
exceptional, inasmuch as It Is stated on
excellent authority, that every mill In
tlie country has orders for Its entire
winter cut of logs. The theory of combining the mills, wiping out much of
the competition that was beginning to
crop np. and substantially lowering the
costs of office management and selling
finished miterial In the Territories,
which Is the natural market for the
product, appeared to be attractive, and
It Is now stated that the proposition has
been closed up.
The effect of such commercial combinations Is usually to close down some
of tbe plants Interested, but this will
certainly uot be the case iu Hast Kootenay this yeir for obvious reasons.
The mills are scattered somewhrt, and
thc ordinary complement of superintendents and foreman will have to bo
retained while the crews of sawyers
and loggers will tin of course, be re-

people revert to the '"swiminin' hole"

Crnuhrook are noted for their enterprise
and the writer feels sure that enough enthusiasm could be worked up to organize a swimming batb. The expense
would not be great and if started now
and in running order before lhe hot
Weather commences would be well patronized. There are veiy few men and
boys who would forego the pleasure of a
refreshing swim for the nominal sum
which would admit them to an established natntciriutii. Swimmer.

Charles and Henry Parker received

"Another or the old landmarks bus
been removed in lhe person of Captain
William Edward Parker, who died on

Parker was the descendent of an .old English family, well known and distinguish'
ed in the annals of the British navy, lu

Doctor Wilson, formerly ol Kugland
Captain and Mrs Parker bad just passed
llie anniversary of their golden wedding.
In 1854 he purchased u farm near Wat-
ervllle, where they lived to bring up a
large family who are all living, except
one. The captain was highly respected
in tbe community an I acted for many
years as a justice of the peace. He was
u genial and hospitable spirit, whose
kindness would extend itself to those
"less finely touched." He endeavored
to bring up his family with that Integrity and honorable pride that was lifted
above snobbishness, and iu the limits of
his small circle he will be missed as one
of those of the old school, wbo seem lo
posses as their heritage that spirit of
sensibility and Ideality, that will not
sink them beneath ibe waters of ihelr
material workaday existence, but help
to sweeten and temper tbe bard realities
of life."

The Free Press, Winnipeg, bas distributed over 9400 thermometers and
barometers as premiums to their Weejc-
1y subscribers throughout Manitoba and
the territories since last fall.
So great has been tho demand for this
attractive premium tbat tbe Free Press
has been obliged to extend the oiler
from time to time, ami order additional
supplies. Of tbe last shipment of one
thousand, over four hundred are already
"spoken for." The Free Press announce thai to the first six hundred
sending $1.00 for the Weedly Free Press
they will semi the premium, after which
the offer will be withdrawn. A reliable
thermometer and barometer is an instrument that ought to be found in every

Press instrument was manufactured expressly to meet climatic conditions in
this country, we would recommend our
readers to avail themselves of the opportunity.

Winnipeg Free Press: An article in
yesterday's issue of au evening paper
staled that there was "much indignation
amongst local railway contractors" lie
cause the construction work in western
Canada had heen let indirectly but al*
most entirely to American firms.
Among the local contractors alleged to
have been shut out ofthe work are J.W.
Buchanan. Charles McDougall, C. Well-
man, Hargruve -S: Sou, Ivgau Bros, and
Mr. Brysou.
Concerning this rumor, C. W. Well
man, whose name had been used without
his permission, when seen by the Free
Press last evening, gave it au emphatic
denial in these words:
"Now, speaking in behalf of myself, I
