First Church Bell In Town  The bell for the Catholic church has  arrived. "Wejxiay now expect to hear  saints and sinners called to worship by  its invitation. This is the first church  bell to be installed in the town, and  whilst we do not agree with the writer  of the following lines, we make no  apology for reproducing them. They  were written by Dave King, for several  years editor of the Kaslo Kootenaian,  appearing at the time the first church  bell was hung in New Denver:"'.  "Say Bill, what was that chimin' sound  I heard a while ago?  It sounded like a church bell'  A-ringing soft and low,  And stirring up old memories  With its echoes, don't you know,"  ���������ajr  JfV.  of  ST.  Anniversary  Service  There was a large congregation at  the Presbyterian Church last Sunday  evening, when the Knights of Pythias  held their Anniversary service. The  members turned up in. strong force to  hear Rev. N. E. Read deliver his promised discourse on "Brotherhood."  He was digging on the mountain���������  Silver 3d ountain���������-when a bell  Sent up from far below him  Soft as any funeral knell,  Its first imploring music,  And it bound him in a spell.  And' musing, down the crooked trail,  v    Hat in hand, to where "Old Bill"  (."Cooked the bannocks and the --bacon  In their camp beside a rill,  Walked the searcher after treasure,  '  Pioneer of Silver Hill.  Another time, a church, a bride,  Like some old forgotten song,  Memory brought back to the searcher  As he heedlesafctrode along.  Another time, a church, a bier,  ,  Came with memory's rushing throng.  "There, Bill, it's startin' in again,  Riugin'lsoi't and ringing low;  You reckon it.'s in Denver  The new church bell?   Bill you know  This old camp is almost done for,  And it's time for us to go."  Will Give Entertainment  St. Patrick's Night  \   '  The ladie's of the Catholic Church are  going to'put on a swell night's entertainment on St. Patrick's night It is  proposed to stage either a four act  drama or two farces. In addition to  this they will give their guests a high  old time aftsr the performance, that  .will follow along the lines, of a large  family party, where good old-fashioned  parlor games will be indulged in- 'More  details will be announced later when  arrangements have matured.

Brooks, one of our most  successful xachers has returned from a  protracted visit to Calgary and other  points in North-west. In conversation*  with Mr. Brooks we learned much valuable information that should be acquired by the members of our Board of  Trade. Mr. Brooks is the first man in  this district who has grown and shipped  jfesmiatoes to any great extent. Last year  this outdoor tomato crop was the talk of  fenvn, and many visitors from outside  points inspected it with great interest.  He said: /  "The first conversation I had with  the wholesale firm of Savage & Pluuk-  ett, of Calgary, brought up the topic of  potatoes, and they wanted me to ship  five car lots at once. The McPherson  Fruit Co. wanted a car lot of apples, and  all along the line, the cry was for potatoes, apples, etc., and all I could re  ply was: "soldout."  Between Calgary and Crestcsu. I was  asked for ten car loth of potatoes. Creston apples were asked for at Cranbrook,  Fernie, Michel, Piucber, Macleod, Leth-  bridge, if anion, High River, Clares-  holm, and also Calgary, and I can assure  you that the apples on sale at those  points looked sorry specimens to the ones  we ship from this town. They were  those hard woody, knotty fellows from  Ontario. In fact it was generally agreed  that the fall and winter apples grown in  Creston cannot be beat.  I found also that the C.P.R. is discriminating between this district and  the Okanagani  and that is something  that our Board of Trade should take up  Without a moment's delay.   I maintain  that the Crow's Nest markets belong to  the Kootenay country, but by reason of  cheap "rates''that'militate against us, the  Okanagaii can beat us out iumany lines.  Less than carload lots from Creston to  Cranbrook  is   33  cents,. Fernie   47c,  Michel, 54c, Macleod, 68b., Lethbrklge,  74c.:, Calgary, 83c, and Edmonton, ������1.06  per 100 lbs.

The spud is now king in the Northwest, and I would seriously advise our  ranchers to pay more.attention to supplying, the market."  ���������oi  Lena Duthio, the Queen of Scottish  song, made her first appearauco at tho  Creston Opera House on Thursday night.  She was greeted by only a mengre  house. Those who were present wore  greatly impressed with tho vocal  abilities of this talented lady, and every  number wns loudly applauded. She  sung in all S3 Scotch and Irish songs,  and her voice appoarod to be as strong  at tho finish as at the commencement.  She also related several anecdotes of a  humorous nature. Her travelling ma to  is Miss Margaret Daniols, who accompanied hor on the piano.  Recommend Import Tariff j Death  on  Lumber I "Mother  The tariff committee of the Canadian  Manufacturers' association will ask the  Dominion government to introduce tariff amendments at this session of parliament in favor of imposing an import  duty of $2 per thousand on certain  grades of foreign rough lumber corresponding to similar grades in British  Columbia.  This was the important announcement made to the Vancouver Province  a few days ago by Mr. Charles S. Meek,  a leading Toronto manufacturer, who is  a guest afc the Hotel Vancouver. Mr.  Meek is a member of the tariff committee and especially represents the  textile industries.       %  "The  application  of the Vancouver  board  of  trade to our association for  support  ia  its   efforts  to secure adequate .protection for the lumber industry  of   British   Columbia would have  beeu  taken   up  last  year but for its  failure to specify the kind of lumber  on which protection was required.   Be  fore our committee secured the information the tariff changes were brought  down iu Ottawa.   Our committee, backed up as it is by the weight of an association  representing   two   thousand  manufacturers, does not act hurriedly.  In dealing with tariff matters the interests of all parts of the country have I  got  to  be  taken into consideration,"  said Mr. Meek.  "The lumber industry is a case in  point. When we started to delve into | zeas in their bereavement,  the question we found that the western  lumbermen, unable to secure a free entry to the American market, were met  on this side of the lino by the competition of the American lumbermen who,  owing to the absence of an import  Canadian duty, often dump their surplus product in the western Canadian  market at demoralizing prices. "We 'Relieve iu equitable but not jug-hanciled  reciprocity. Now we further ascertained,- that while the representations  of the Vancouver board of trade were  in the main, correct, no thought had  'been'"'taken in"regard" to certain, classes  ��������� > \    .  of lumber imported by eastern Canadian manufacturers. I refer especially  to hickory and elm, which are xiaed in  the manufacture of carriages and agricultural implements and which are not  produced in British Columbia. We will  ask for protection for western millmon,  but at the same timo will ask that the  free importation of thpso American  hardwoods bo still continued."���������Koot-  ouny aud Board of Trado Journal.  Bert Nprtliey's  Everybody will regret to learn of the  death of the mother of our esteemed  citizen, Mr. G. B. Northey, who died  at Spokane, Sunday, [Jan. SIsfc. G. 3*.  received a telegram announcing the  very serious illness of his mother, and  he arrived in time to give his revered  parent comfort by his presence. The  lady succumbed to an attack of appendicitis. The deceased lady is one of  pioneers of the Kootenays. and , she  leaves behind a circle of -friends';'that-'/  is of a wide area'. Mrs. Northey, as  the wife of a pioneer printer and publisher in this country, learned of the  vissicitudes that bestrew the path of a  country printer, and her cheery words  of hope were ever an incentive to the  pioneer printer of West Kootenay "to  tablished the first ��������� paper in Revelstoke,  and in 1896 established the "Rosslander"  at Rossland. He was also interested in  mining properties on the Sophie mountain. Mr. Northey is still alive, and  carrying with him the burden of grief  are four sons and a daughter. Mrs.  Northey leaves behind her a large  circle of friends who deeply mourn her  demise.  G. R. Northey, of this town, was for  several years editor and proprietor of.  the "Camborne Miner," published at  Camborne, B.C., and Is a son of the departed lady, and to him and his wife we  convey the heartfelt sorrow of thoA citi-  Offers a Calgary Market  H. T. ilutcheon, representing MeBSre. Cloy  &' Simmons, the Calgary fruit Importers, met  the Creston farmers in conclave last night in  an endeavor to. persuade them to allow his  house, to exclusively handle the produce of  the district. Such is now the reputation of  tho Creston berry, that the Idea has been  mooted to establish a Creston agency at Calgary, but whether or no that idea will be  acted upon, or -whether the fruit growers  close a deal with tho representative of Cloy  &.

[The Editor is not responsible for the  opinions of his correspondents, nor does  he always agree with them. ]  To the Editor, Creston  Open confession may be good for the  soul, but in the case of your communicant "Dry Docked Rancher" he stands  a self-confessed   smasher of the law;  therefore before firing epithets at another a cursory examination of his own  conduct would be quite in order.   Furthermore, your correspondent, from his  own assertion, is one of many who seem  to consider that because they have observed the statutory law of the country  more in the breach, that tho law has  become   obsolete,  and now resent its  application in a spirit of poevishuess  akin to that of a spoiled  child when  told he cannot have any more fruit cake.  I quite ogree with the remark that it is  a shamo that more men should ho under  tho influonco of liquor thou your correspondent had seen in tho throe years  of previous residouco   especially <ib in  tho instance at least, ho was perfectly  sober, and doubtless very angry too at  his turn down,  ThiB question of Sunday closing, despite Bquoals, kicks, protests, is here to  stay as long as the existing laws are in  force, and those who object should do  no constitutionally, i.e., by tho ballot  box,  and not do tho sneak act by tho  nido door, or havo it handed out through  u hole iu tho wall.    There is nothing  to prevent a man buying his booze on  Saturday and drinking it on Sunday,  font if he makes a consummate chump  *il himself, and rolls around tho street.  drunk, it is immaterial what day lie  , bought it, he is just nn fit r\ subject for  the calaboose.    Don't attribute all tho  credit to tho Rov. D. W. Scott or you'll  make him puffed np.   He could inveigh  till his voice cracked if there were no  v law'on the statute books.   D. Ii, from  liin own statement can advance no argument why the law should ho revised or  xopealod so far an ho In concerned, be-  #*iuho ho htw a' homo, mid if his boor is  tit such importance ho nonjd easily pnr-  <hnso a kog on Saturday and invito his  IrlAtidH, so that   thoy and his family  could enjoy Ms hospitality,  Tho Rev. D. W.

C������������������nrsrou i\evtew.  Whilst I to a great e-xrenc agree with  the seutimeucs of "Dry Docked K;m-  eher" in your last, issue. I do not altogether approve of the language be uses.  The action of the Rev. Scort was most  ill advised. He has done him and his  cause more harm than he can put right  however long he may stay here.  Pools rush in  where angels fear to  tread, and in the case- of a new town  like Creston,  an  angel would riot endeavor to act the part of a self appointed reformer.   Every person of common  sense knows the hours worked by people  around this town.    Take tho men of the  various lumber camps; these men work  early aud late and can only come in on  Saturday nights to do their purchasing,  and they want to enjoy Sunday in their  own way.   They like to take a drink  when thoy want it and I venture to fay  that the method of the Rev.  Scott in  "trying to enforce his pet scheme of total  abstinence,   will mean a loss of more  dollars to tbo store keepers of this town  than would pay the Rev. Scott's salary  twenty times over.   It is worse for the  people who like their liquor too. If they  cannot get it on Sunday in their own  natural way they will either buy overnight, nutl secretly drink on Sunday or  they will lose their time to stay over  Monday and drink.   Mr. Scott is wrong  and ho knows it but the way to preferment in Local option circles and the consequent increase of salary will spur this  David   to   attempt   to   slaughter the  Philistine Goliath.  It is   generally understood that the  Rev. Scott asked the hotel proprietors  to sign his petition for Local option and  straugo to relate thoy refused.   One can  readily understand how aftor this rebuff  Mr. Scott decided that as ho couldn't  get the hotel keepers to commit suicide  for his glory ho would take other means.  The justices of peace nil of whom arc  substantial business men, men of honor,  watchful  of the moral well being of  Crestou, are by the action of tho Rev.  Scott,  deliberately insulted.   If thoro  had been auy real necessity for drastic  action ihoso gentlemen would havo at-  tended to it,   Let Mr. Scott practise  tolerance, oct with more discretion aud  lees mil.   Lot him think of the wants of  others and he will make friends and win  rite ertueJii of his mionu'os.   Mr. Scott  will say that tho law wan being broken  bin it wns not the fact, that tho law  was not muTied out, that caused him to  '���������lose the bars; it was to injure in tho  worst manner those who differed from  his intemperate notions of temperance,  Ynnv.M, Tfiiipttrnto.  community, is not worth, moiv consideration, and d.'-es not "cut morj ice"  than that of a self important individual  who is crying oat and making himself  objectionable because he is deprived of  j his Sunday beer, it is a pity.  j Again, lie states, that "it lias been his |  j vxperieuco that meii who occasionally  ! imbibe on a Sunday have a little bit,  { more, reaard for the day of i-esfc than the [  i Kev. Scott." It would be curious to!  i know how this unfortunate "Dry Dock- j I  j eu Rancher" arrived at this conclusion J J  j as it appears on the face of it, absurd, j J  j As for his remark aueafc Mr. Scott J |  ���������dr nking his (the author's) health in  milk at one o'clock on Sunday, the vulgar bad taste of the remark is so very  apparent that it only stamps the author  for what he must be, and needs 110  further comment. There is one more  thing I should like to say, and that is  that I consider that when.a man has a  grievance against a minister of the  Church. or anyone for that matter?- arfd  chooses to air it in such an aggressive  manner as the "Dry Docked Rancher"  lias, it would. be decidedly more manly j  to sign his name under it and not hide  behind a 110m do plume. This, if be  reads it, he can take as au invitation  from me to divulge himself.

Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor for the  enjoyment of repose. The early springs are  very favorable for gardening and budding  fruit tree. The autumns are very long  and the weather is of an ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild strawberries bloom  as late as November.  /Iftatfiets  While there is a splendid local demand  for products, the principal markets for the  Creston district are the big centres of the  Crows' Nest Pass and all cities as far east j  as Fort William and Chapleau, and as far  north as Athabasca Landing. We are ab-'  solutely the closest producing point to the  markets, therefore we receive higher prices  by reason of our products reaching the markets in shorter time and better in condition  done by any other district.  than can be  Soil  The soil is an alluvial clay on a clay subsoil. This does not apply, however, to the  entire valley, as the lower bench lands are of  a black vegetable mould, while the land in  the-vicinity of Erickson is of a sandy character. Four-fifths of the\ entire valley is  free from stones and i gravel. The land is  practically 'level and mostly covered with  timber. Fine Government roads are plentiful, one being thirteen miles in length. Soil  to suit any kind of vegetation may be secured in this valley.-  /Iftofsture  Moisture is plentiful, as .it rains every  mouth and is sufficient for bountiful crops of  every description;  products  The famous strawberry fields of Creston  have outclassed every district; in British  Columbia this year for production, quality  and prices. In addition to this we raise hay  and all kinds ot vegetables, apples, peaches,  pears, plums, cherries, nectarines and grapes  as well as all the smaller bush fruits, which  grow in abundance  Transportation  Creston is well favored in the matter of  transportation. The C. P. R. passenger  trains call here twice daily, going east and  west. The eastbbund passengfer and express passes,. through here at 12.1 p.m.  therefore allowing berries and fruits . to be  picked in the forenoon and shipped in a re-  frigeiator car with no further handling of  fruit until the markets are reached. The  G. N. runs trains into Creston. The railroads pass through the Creston Valley, and  fruit may be loaded at eight points along  the line.  progress  te*  \  WRITE FOR ANY  INFORMATION  The progress of the Fruit Growing Industry of the district has been very rapid.  Five years, ago there'" was   150  fruit trees'  shipped to the .Crestou district, while in the  spring of  190S about'48,000 were received  at this point.   There were also several hundred thousands of strawberry plants and  berry bushes shipped in.   We have a rural  telephone system,  which will shortly be  connected with Nelson and Cranbrook, it  being already connected with Spokane.     A.  system for waterworks and also for generating electric power has   been  installed at  Goat River Falls.    Electricity will also aid  in opening up some of our large mines. We  have a good Graded School with an attendance of 65 pupils^ two large general stores,  gent's furnishings, Canadian Bank of Commerce, photograph gallery, 3 restaurants, 3  hotels,   hardware   store,   tiushop, jewelry  store, 2 barber shop?, poolroom, 2 laundries,  blacksmith, furniture store, tailor, building  contractors, harness and saddlery store and  two livery stables.

For a small  town  Creston must consider itself singularly fortunate in having the opportunity of witnessing (he   performance"  as   put up   by  tho   Stuttz     company.  The performance wns quite up to the  advertised, production, and many there  were who went away with the impression that the company were deserving of  a bumper house, and   certainly rnpre  than they  got   here.    On Friday the  company produced "Was She. to Blame,"  an evident adaption of BerthaM. Clay's  novel,    'A  Bitter   Atonement."     The  company is au evenly balanced one, and  the audience was given a treat such as  it had never bargained for.    Mr. Stuttz'  is himself an.  actor who at the bauds of  the French   Government   received the  docoraf on of the  ''Cross of the Legion  of Honor," for natural, acting.    Whilst  here the scribe had thsi privilege of gazing upon this decoration and  the scrip  that  accompanied it,.and tiin copies of  French journals at that date relate how  Mr. Stuttz was decorated in the presence  of Henry Irving   and   Edwin   Booth.  Certain it is that Mr.  Stuttz comes up  to the highest ideals of the art,  and his  clever acting elicited spontaneous  applause.      Never "stagey,"   and  often  breaking away from the orthodox gallery play, he soon had- his audience at  his command.    Miss Aggie Stuttz, the  leading lady of t.hp.'Ploy is an artiste  who captivated her audience in a moment.    It took but a brief time for the  audience to realize her histrionic ability.  On  Saturday   afternoon tho company  appear: d iu "Olo Oloson," a rip roaring  comedy that has made a name for itself  on this continent.    In the evening the  company   produced   "Captain Swift.''  The company appeared under the aus  picos of tho Acme Quadrillo Club, and  at the end of the evening performances  dawes   were   held.       Whenever   the  Stuttz company comes aloug the Crow  again it is to be hoped they will stay off  at Creston.       " '  | The Misses Solan and Wilson, Sirdar,  spent the week cud with Mrs. E. C.
