Several of tho members  of the Dramatic Club are assisting tho  ladies in making this concert a success  by arranging the details and providing  ���������talent. Three of its members are producing that good old stand-by, "Bos  and Cos,"' the cast being: Cox���������Mr R.  Fitzgerald; Box���������Mr. J. J Atherton;  Mrs. Bouncer--Miss B. Moore. All the  best talent iu the neighbourhood has  been secured for the entertainment, and  the hall should b6 packed for Ireland's  '.night of music and mirth.  Local Option  Premier McBride has given an answer  to the deputation, headed by Rev. Dx\  Spencer, which recently interviewed  the government iu iegord to local option. Tho delegation had an interview  with the executive, February Snd and  made a strong plea for the introduction  of legislation which would result in  communities being able to decide for  themselves whether or not the sale of  intoxicating liquor should be permitted  in their midst. The leader of the government has informed , Dr. Spencer that  Athletic Club Formed  Crestou. now has an Athletic Club.  In the Mercantile Hall on Tuesday last,  a repaesentative gathering of the young  men of the town decided to form a club  under the caption of the "Creston Athletic Club." Mr. J. J. Atherton was  elected to the chair, and he pointed out  the objest of the proposed organization.  Rev. N. E. Bead was elected president,  and Messrs. Rodgers, Mallandaine,  Mead and Rev. Hayman were elected  vice-presidents. Mr. Leslie Durno was  unanimously elected secretary-treasurer.  m  ������<saity and Timber Com=  : pany Formed in  the question of local option will be sub- j A committee of five, consisting of Messrs.  nutted to the people in the form of a jG. R. Northey, N.  Brown, J. Mackie,  Mr. Philip Copsey has arrived from  Regina. to locate here. Mr. Copsey  was the proprietor of the largest market  gardening business -at Regina, and it  is his intention to embark in business  here on a large scale. He will first of  all clear up the parcel of land that was  purchased at the government land sale  by C. P. Kiel. He thinks that the land  he is operating upon is particularly  adapted to the raising of celery. / Ho  has started to erect a greenhouse on his  laud, and he is confident that he has  struck a good town for marketing his  produce.       .  There has been quite-a movement in  South African war scrip this week in  Creston, the Creston Realty & Timber  Co. having purchased several pieces  locally and wore fortunate in securing  some in Spokane.

Further proof of the advancement of  Crestpn is offered in the fact that this  week a company has been formed under  the name of the Creston Realty & Timber Co., with C P. Riel as president and  G. R. in orthey, sec-treasurer.  Mr. C. P. Riel, when possing through  predion in4 Jnne, 1907, realized the possibilities of the district for fruit growings  ai;,<i. after completing the business on  .?V!4\:cb. he was journeying, he came back  to Creston in October of that year and  Sj-������������.j-n;i .. ������.Ani ���������.....j.^-'.v.^.a ������.^..3*. iAMj -Km*;  >������������ou u. icoi comiD aSuiiyulii -ciiid  DU51=  ness. He met with success from the beginning, but the advertising that this  district received from the Government  sale of lands last October, has increased  his business to such an extent, that in  order to handle it successfully, the above  company has been formed. <  Mr. G. R. Northey, although a recent  comer, arriving here in September last,  realized that Creston and district is  bound to become the hub of the fruit  growing district of West Kootenay, decided to merge his timber and insurance  business with that of C. P. Riel, believing that by so doing, better service could  be rendered. Mr. Northey is an old  resident of this province, having been  in West Kootenay for the past seventeen  years, and durink that time has seen  many changes caused by the march of  progress. It is therefore with much satisfaction that we hail him in our midst,  for he knows a good thing when he sees  it. .  The above firm are now preparing a  lot of advertising literature, which they  purpose sending broadcast over the  country, which will have a beneficial  effect and will be the means of attracting settlers to our growing district, be-  '0G$i$:%e'epi;������g"-'' before the public the  golden opportunities that exist here.  ��������� They wish to thank their patrons for  past favors, and trust to see. many new  new names added to their list, and will  endeavour to meet the'wishes of their  patrons in every way possible.  The Review wishes the Creston Realty and Timber Co. a long and successful  life, and hopes that they too, will, like  us, eventually reach the goal that we  are striving for, "to make a million."  ..The owners of the Dow addition,  through thoir agents, tho Creston Realty  & Timber Co , have magnanimously  donated a building site to tho English'  Church missiou upon which to build  thoir proposed church building. ��������� Another biiildibg site has boon offered by  Mr. E. Mallandaine, and both offers  will bo considered by the confraternity  at an early date. As soon as the site is  decided upon, buiiding operations will  bo commenced.  .* Creston is now crying out for now  sidewalks.

The officials have opened correspondence with  the leading horsemen of Western Canada and the North Western States, and  anticipate one of the,.most successful  meetings ever holdinthis section of the  country. Attractive purses will bo put  up and tho horsemen of this vicinity feel  confident that there will bo a large attendance.  trepressions of a Visitor  Mr. R. W. Northey, who was recently  on a visit to his son here, has arrived at  Rossland, and to the "Rossland Miner"  has the following to say of his impressions of the Creston district:  ' Creston, B. C, has incarnated itself  and is now making new growth on a  higher plane. The old town was built  about ten years ago, almost down on j  the flat, close to the Great Northern  railway, which came up the Kootenay  river valley from Bonners' Ferry.  Idaho, about thirty-five miles south.  This old town is a compact little plaoef  a.tid boasts of two hotels, two stores and  two livery Btables, but as the Great  Northern did' not go any further and  after a few spasmodic trial trips did not  go at all, things at Creston began to  look blue, as Br'er Lowery would say.  And when the O.P.R. came along with  its main line from the Crows' Nest- to  Nelson it did not do a thing to Creston.  Moreover the track is on a higher level  than the old town, so that it lies imprisoned between the steel rails of the  G. N.R. and the O.P.R.  ��������� Bnt, during the past twelve months,  a great change has come over the  spirit of the scene, and Creaton, New  Creston, is surely entitled to its place  on the map, as a ������town with a future.'  New Creston lies on a gentle slope  above the railway and separated from  the old town by the right of way of the  B.C. Southern railway, or. in other  words, the O.P.R. When the old town  was built this gentle slope was covered  with thick timber, which has since been  cleared off and now presents the most  ideal conditions for fruit growing.  ' TTes, it is fruit that holds the destiny  of Creston, B. C. Several crohards are  already in bearing, in close prosimity  to the town, .and I was told that the  fruit, especially apples, are par excellence. The Orestonians explain why  they are bound to dish the wigs of  fruit growers further west thusly: The  eastbound train passes through Creston  about noon, so that all small fruits,  particularly strawberries, can be picked  in the morning and arrive in Calgary  and other Albertan cities early next  morning quite fresh with the dew still  on them. Fruit growers further west  cannot do that, at least the enthusiastic Crestonian says so, bo we will let ib  go at that.  ' What I saw at Creston a few days  ago was certainly encouraging. There  are about twenty new buildings, some  of. them not quite completed, a new  Methodist church, new bank, new post  office, now furniture store and several  others: a fine Catholic Church and a  large pnblio hall. Among tho new  buildings projeoted are a Presbyterian  church, several dwelling houses and the  schoolhouse, for which tho government  appropriation is $8,600.   There aro nine  ty children of school age in the vicinity  and the present population is about 700.  Sis months ago the Creston Review began its labor of loye for the npliftmg of  humanity, under the capable management of J. J. Atherton, who is pretty  well known in West Kootenay as the  guiding spirit of the defunct Lardeau  Eagle. Br'er Atherton seems to be a  desciple of the "Sage of New Denver."  His style is very similar.  * There are thousands of acres flt for fruit  and hundreds ot acres of flat meadows in the  big valley south and west of the town, where  the Kootenay River runs north to the Kootenay lake. The mountain scenery Is fi������e������  the snow clad peaks of Idaho rising sharply  against the southern horizon, one peak especially demanding attention on account of  its solitude and whiteness and pyramldiai  fc?ns, very like a sugar-los^.f of the best white  cryBtaUized.  ' Fruit is king, aud the town that has only  mining to make its payroll will soon have to  go way back and sit down. If one could look  into the future he would see orchards spread  over lauds now covered by virgin forests.  The parting words of my Creston friend were  'We don't need irrigation.*'" .  A man who signed the Munro Hotel  register as F. J. S. Chapman, has been  detected as   an  issuer   of   worthless  cheques.    Arriving here one day last  week, he gave it out that he was looking  for land for settlement upon, and he  took an option on a bunch of land, paying the owners (by cheque) ������120 as the  option price.   Having accomplished this  and instilled into the minds of his victims confidence as to his solidity, he  then proceeded to write cheques, all of  which would leave him a piece of change  coming, more or less.   He tried several  business men in town, but he didn't look  good to them.   He inveigled the Munro  Hotel proprietor into cashing a cheque  for $30, but Geo. Munro became suspicious and he  wired, to Cranbrook,  where the man said he had as account  at one of the banks.   All the banks denied knowledge of the man, and Munro  immediately wired to Chief JDevitt, at  Nelson, to keep  an eye on the smart  guinea    Arrived at Nelson,  Chapman  got busy to raise the wind.   He visited  Dr. Doherty to be treated for an alleged  complaint, and the medico cashed his  cheque and handed him the balance.  That was where he, fell down. The long  arm of the law reached out a few hours*  later and gathered him in.    He was  tried before magistrate Bullock-Webstar  at Nelson on Wednesday and sentenced  to six months' hard labor.  Just as boob as the snow goes off, tho  Oreston Realty and Timber Go. intends  to bring in a large party of settlers from  the prairie district. This la the result  of an advertising campaign that has  been conducted during tho winter.

The rapid development that has taken  place in Creston has developed a spirit  i*feasy optimism. Under the circumstances this is very natural. The values  of wild land have increased fifty-fold.  Kew buildings are constantly going up.  3"Tew settlers are constantly coming in.  r������'ho future of the district as a great  2'ruit producing ceatra is assured, and  an all probability oth������sources of wealth  sit present unregarded, will be discovered  :i nd add greatly to tho future prosperities the place.  But there is another side of the ques-  lioii that now receives but soant consideration and to which I wish to direct  attention. Everyone is Bure of the future  ������.f tho place; everyone feels like discounting- that future. The counsels of  ibo old time virtues of thrift are forgotten, wad after all, thrift is the corner  htoue of character and well being in an  individual, a community, or a nation.  .And thai it comes about that a host of  ���������jiiirositoshave descended upon us, greedy  jis wolves, to dovonr the contents of our  liurses. Theatrical companies are con-  h tantly making raids on tho substance  tif such as delight in amusements. Dancing clubs are as a pitfall to tho hopes  of tho younger generation.   Bnt for a  i-toady tax upon tho resources  of old  11 rid yonng alike, the ecclesiastical bau-  1 its have yob to meet their match.  Creston is not yet self sustaining.   It  does not produce onough to feed and  clothe   its  inhabitants.     It    ia   only  ihrongh   money brought in from the  nutBido that wo manage   to live.

Cool evenings, however, are a persistent factor for the  enjo3'ment- 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.  j&W!  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  as Fort William and Chapleau, and as far  north as Athabasca Landing." We are absolute^* the closest producing point to the  markets, therefore we receive higher prices  \>y reason of our products reaching the markets in shorter time and better in condition -  than can be done by any other district. %  (Transportation  Soil  s..  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 laud in  the vicinity of Erickson is of a sandy character. Four-fifths oi the entire valley is  free from stones and gravel. The land^ is  practically level and mostly covered with  timber. Fine Government roads are plentiful, one being thirteen miles iu leugth. vSoil  to suit ������ny kind of vegetation may be secured in this valley.  Aoisture  Moisture is plentiful, as it xains every  month aud is sufficient for bountiful crops of  every description. *  .ftrobucts  The famous strawberry fields of Crouton  have outclassed every district in British  Columbia this year for production, quality  ' n nd prices. In addition to this we raiselmy  and all kinds of vegetables, apples, peaches,  peaia, plums,clierricj?, nectarines and grapes  :ns well at'nil the smaller bush fruits, which  grow in abundance  Creston is well favored in the matter of  transportation. The C. P. R. passenger  trains call here twice daily, going east and  west. The eastbound passenger and express1* passes through here at 12.1 p.m.  therefore allowing berries and fruits to be  picked in the forenoon and shipped in a re-  fi-igciator 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^'oaded at eight points along  the line.      /'  lP>toat*ess  *������   t (ii*l.g -ft M tj/t'htftil ffij<f..'.d*JMfl.
