 !<*  \~9 fi  -z^'  .A.  y<s  <-' m  ih/  7  ?    Pro  vincial Library  ai>l21  YOL.   XII.  ORESTON, B. 0��������� FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1920  No. 34  A:  Mrp. Cockle, late -of Alice Siding,  arrived here on Saturday and has decided to take up residence in the M.  Wigen boarding house where, we  understand, she has decided to stay  for the winter months.  Bibth���������On October 23rd, to Mr. and  Mrs. Clem Payette, a daughter.  Pete Wallace and Pete Wasnock,  locally known as "Big and Little  Pete," returned to their homes at  Fernie on Tuesday. They will be  sadly missed in some quarters, but  great hopes are entertained of their  return next spring when mill work  opens up.  Carl Carlson entrained on Tuesday,  en route to Arrow Park. He says he  will probably return in a month, but  knowing the gentleman we will expect him when fte see him.  We are glad to be able to report  that Mrs. R. Uri, who has been on the  sick list for some time, is getting  around again nicely.  These days of glorious sunshine  haye'sent the haymakers hustling out  on the slougb. By .now the majority  have finished operations, but there are  a few who stiii journey out every day  hoping to get through before the  weather sees fit to break again.  There will be a general meeting of  the' United Farmers on Saturday  night, Oct. 30tb, at the schoolhouse,  at 8.30 prompt. . Business general  with a discussion and vote on the  national policy and whether we are  prepared to take any political action.  the greetest good to the greatest number, and in a community that is  launching a real public libraa-y for the  first time I fear a fee of $2 will not  appeal favorably to the heads of many  households whom it is very desirable in  every, way to have as library patrons.  Too, another feature in connection  with the fixing of the fee that should  not be overlooked is that hitherto  members of the Women's Institute  have had access to a free library, and  as this has now been absorbed by the  Creston and Disti-ict Library those  who enjoyed the privilege of free  reading for a matter of almost two  years have had their book supply cut  off, and if they are to continue to  enjoy the pleasures obtained from a  supply of books that cost them nothing a charge of $2 is going to seem  pretty steep���������if one can judge by the  expressions of opinion already heard.  As to the principle outlined of allowing a patron so many books for a  membership fee of $2, and so many  extra ones if a $3 fee is paid, it seems  to me a lot of trouble will be saved the  librarian, as well as the hoard, if but  one fee is established and the principle  of one book -per member made a hard  and fast rule. In every librarv there  are just so many so-called worth while  volumes, and the aim should he to  keep these circulating as freely as possible, which would be out of the question were the higher-priced members  to haye the priyile'ge of taking hoine  three or four books at a time.  Next to having the books, equally  as important is the factor of being  able to hand the books out at the convenience of the majority of library  'members, and certainly if a fee of 82  is to be charged sometning better  than one afternoon and one night will  6*?- expected. In tbis connection I  understand .the matter of the best possible service depends almost entirely  Editor RuvjEWi .       ���������   r     upon finances, and that the estimated  the Creston .and District Public Library has been quite clearly outlined,  and the good news giyen out that it is  hoped to haye the library started possibly by the first of December. As no  direct appeal has yet been made for  funds I trust the few suggestions I  have to make will not come too late���������  nor lead me to be classed as one oppos-  to the library.  In connection with any new undertaking it has always been my opinion  that continued success depends in a  great measure upon the kind of a  start accorded it. With this conviction in my mind it seems to me that  the library plan outlined has two  rather serious defects, thest being in  the high and sliding scale of membership fees as well as the limited number  of times per week that it is proposed  to haye the library open at the start.  As to membership fee I Am strongly  in fayor of a popular fee oi not more  than $1 per year. The policy of a  library should alwavs he that of doing  Conservatives  ?  A general meeting of Oreston  v alley Conservative A sso-  ciation will he held in  Mercantile Hall  SaVy, Oct,  Greston  at EIGHT p;m.  lead the boai'd"W>exp^t tb'be a6Te to  have the library open oftener than  twice weekly. As to. library accommodation my information is that the  present plans are to fit up the present  Women's Institute library quarters  and continue to have it as the library  home. Up till very recently one of  the local merchants found it good  business to handle the small goyeminent libraries and give a six-day a  week seryice. Would it not he possible to have one of the stores take  charge of the new library on the same  or slightly more generous terms than  they use to handle the government  libraries.  While too much stress cannot be  laid upon the desirability of having a  librarian familiar with the books in  charge and a library service separate  and distinct from --any other line of  business, would it not he well, for the  present at least, to waive this quite  important detail in order to afford  hook-c-hanging accommodation which  mnst he provided if it, is expected to  have the people of Wynndel, Canyon  City. Erickbon and Lister patronize  the library in the ninnhors that will  be essential if the library is to carry  on successfully. To secure and retain  the co-operation of the country folk  the library service must, as far as  possible, suit their convenience���������  which is a very much di lie rent proportion than the -.-t-liYeliieii-:i- of LoU'll  or near-town folks.  Something, Mr. Editor, might be  Beiiil as to the wisdom of attempting  I to have on the libiary shelves hooks  ! on fashions, cooking, pickling, prim-  I ing, gardening, etc., etc., etc., all of  ���������* which are very desirable provided the  .intention  is to have a thousand or so  I lieee-v*.*-.  a v .ill.e bit*,  heel   wiuii*   ii,  will h>- a  matter of only three or four hundred  i books my adyiec wouhl he to Und out  j what sort  of reading matter Crenton  ValloyV   ta*.te   rim-;   to, and   stock   nn  ���������J t w  'accordingly.

Potatoes have turned out surprisingly well, the J yield averaging at  least nine tons to the acre.  Mrs. Witherhead got back from  Bruce county, Ontario, last week,  where she had "been called 'on account  of the fatal illness of her mother, who  passed away about two weeks ago.  Mr. Witherhead, who is working at  Yahk, returned with her for a short  stay.  Outside of Creston this district rolled up the biggest "dry'*? majority of  any point in the Valley. The plurality-' was 14. There_ were at least 25  citizens absent on polling day, otherwise the lead would have been still  larger.  C. Blair last?- week loaded out a  couple of cars of beef stock, which he  sold to Joe Walk-ley, the Cranbrook  butcher. On account of the poor haying season he will nardly winter as  big a herd as last year.  A. G. Samuelson is basy at present  on the erection of a commodious new  two-story residence. It will be of log  construction, sheeted inside and out.  Elder Reed had "a very good turnout  at his meeting at the school on Sunday night, and this, week is conduct-:  ing seVvices in the Porthiil district.  He will be here ^gain this Sunday  eyening, and will abo hold meetings at Kitchener as well as Creston.  Now that threshing is pretty well  along, the influx of. prairie labor is  being noticed. Loggers are arriving  almost every day now.  It is currently reported that A. G.  Samuelson and John Johnson have  taken quite a sizable logging contract  with J. B.

Lance Lowes and Harry Vernon were selected as  delegates. On being pressed to allow  his name to be placed in nomination  as a candidate Col. Lister finally consented to allow his name to go before  the convention. He will leave Thursday on a yisit to Kaslo.  Interest was not as keen as anticipated in the prohibition referendum  vote on Wednesday last, only about  75 per cent, of the Listerities utilizing  the ballots. D. B. O. Butler was assisted by Harry Vernon as clerk, with  Mrs. D. Chalmers "dry" scrutineer,  and S. A. Evans looking -iftcr the  govern in ( nt control interests.  N. Stones is doing quite a trade in  the butcher line now. Some time ago  he purchased a few head of beef cattle  and these he is now slaughtering, and  supplying the camp with prime beef  at very reasonable prices.  ���������  Rev. G.

Mrs. Archie Kerr, who has been  here helping her parents with the  apple harvest, returned to Kitchener  the latter part of the we ek.  Mrs. Alf. Palmer was a visitor with  friends in Fernie a few days last week.  There has been a big rush at thf.  Uuion warehouse the past couple of  weeks, no less than three packers  being hard at it wrapping the wiQter  varieties of apples.  J. H. Schofield, M.P.P., of Trail,  was a visitor with R. J. Long a couple  of days the early part of the week.  Mr. Dunn, a resident of West Creston, spent a couple of days here this  w eek, loading ont a car of No. 3 apples  which he and Mr. Davis purchased  locally and shipped to Saskatchewan.  Potatoes have also figured in this  week's exp������rti=, the LoDg ranch alone  loading out'two cars, which they have  sold to the C.P.R. mill and lumber  camps at Yahk.  Mrs. Brownrigg's parents, who have  been visiting beie for the past month,  left on Wednesday on the return trip  to their home at Red Deer, Alta.  m  Li&fer  Lister's majority - for government  control in the prohibition voting on  Wednesday Idst is 22. 88 votes were  polled out of 101 available.  S. T. Harvey of Vancouver is a visitor here at present, a guest of H. A.  Reid.  Harry Brown was another absentee  from eamp for a few daws spending  the week-end with  Cranbrook friends.  Clearing operations were started  this week on the twenty-acre block  that will comprise the townsite. It is  situated back of the school property,  on the main road to Porthiil aud  Creston.  The latest to equip himself with a.  hay burner is A. W. Brain, who has  just invested $145 in a horse and rig,  Pete Nelson being the vendor.  Thi-s has been a hit of a record week  for special meetings. The. United  met in special session to discuss the  U.F. national policy, and on Wednes  d������iv afternoon lh������- Ladies' Auxiliary of  the G.W.V.A. had an extraordinary  general meeting.  *  Jas. Jory is  still further improving  his   place   hy  the  erection  of a  new  20x21 foot barn.  An unusually large crop of colds is  reported in camp at. present, some of  which are mild types of the old reliable flu.  Lister Conservatives had u well-  attended and enthusiastic meeting on  Wednesday night   for the purposes of  e>* ���������^tllh'.J.t i.m    .Uld    ..lie e;t iil(_,    d.lr^.iU*.,  MILK PRICES  well filled on Wednesday night for  the service of inducting Rev. J. A.  James of Edmonton into the permanent pastoral charge of the church.  Rev. T. D. McClintock of Nelson, as  interim moderator, was in charge of  proceedings, assisted by Rev. A. M.  O'Donnell of Trail���������the latter preaching the induction sermon and addressing the minister, while the formei  delivered the customary charge to. the  congregation. Rev. G. Knox, pastor  of Creston Methodist Church, was also  present and assisted in the induction  exercises*. TJhe musical features of the  evening were in. charge of Mrs.-Oatway, who pt-esided at the orjgan;."atnd ,  along \mifi M#s, "^  Eby and H. H. Taylor contributed a  quartette, while Mr. Eby gave a splendid solo rendering of "Abide with  Me." After the service the ladies  served refreshments which was followed by a number of speeches by  both clerics and laymen, and at its  conclusion all present were afforded  opportunity to meet the new pastor  and Mrs. James, who is with him.  For the present they are stopping  with Mr. and Mrs. Rose, but expect to  be moving into the manse at the first  of the week.  The fine weather that has prevailed  for almost the past week has enabled  the ranchers to get in their vegetable  and root crops and no one is now  worrying about the possibility of having frosts. On well cultivated areas  potatoes in some-instances haye run  almost ten tons to the acre.  If all reports happen to prove true  the Erickson section will proyide at  least two weddings before 1921 i������*  ushered in.  H. Brownrigg was a business visitor  at Yahk a couple of days last week.  *; Official,, announcement was mad������  ���������-dav from. O.P.R^ headquarters  that T.

Of course the reader must not  take the illustration too literally in  this connection. We would not have  it inferred that those who supported the present Prohibition Act look  forward complacently to the coming into force of government control of the liquor business. But it  ean be safely said that the almost  overwhelming majority coupled  with the fact' that the majority  vote is so uniformly spread over  the province, has had the happy  effect of convincing the most ardent  of our prohibitionists that the  people have spoken with no uncertain voice and the opinion  thus ex  Boots, Shoes.

There have been numerous explanations offered as to why the  province has reversed in some  measure its prohibition verdict of  just a, little over four years ago.  The favorite theory, possibly, is  that of failure to strictly enforce  the existing dry laws. Locally  this manner of reasoning it out  does- not hold good in fact, for the  simple reason that those who are  in a position to judge unhesitatingly admit'that the law is nowhere  better observed in the province  than right here in Creston.  While the privilege of accounting for defeat is always one of the  consolations of the losing side about  the only explanation that will explain the recent reversal of public  sentiment on all important issue is  that after three years of statutory  prohibition the people have discovered that it hasn't been exactly  what they wanted and on the first  opportunity presented have not.  been backward in admitting their  error of judgment.  Whether government control  will fulfil the expectations of those  voting in its favor will largely rest  with the amount of "control" the  new legislation will provide���������and  the calibre of the men who will be  ^appointed as controllers.

The suggestion is a timely one if  nothing further comes of it than  the eliciting of a statement from  the memorial committee as to just  where the proposition is at. and  why, after at leasi, a year to come  to Rome conclusion in tho matter, a  move has not heen made to get on  with the erection of the granite  memorial which wan so .strongly  favored in the vote that wa.s taken  to fh'cide as to what form the proposed memorial should take-  If  the  propo.-iition   to divert,  the  money   to a library  building i.s en-  t i-rtet i i\e>.

Too, in connection with those  who boosted for a memorial in the  shape of a building the thought  then uppermost in people's minds  was a structure that could be made  use of as a returned men's quarters  for various purposes���������and granted  the objective of $5000 was realized  possibly a building that would  have served for community social  and educational purposes could  have been combined.  In view of the pronounced and  widely divergent wishes of many  of those contributing to the soldiers  memorial fund it will be the part  of wisdom of those in charge to  make haste slowly (but none the  less surely) in coming to any decision, and as for the library a few  months stay of proceedings will  not be harmful. The library is a.  very necessary and lfeefnl institution, with quite a live organization  backing it. If those in charge and  the others interested in the library  can demonstrate that the institu  tion is in good measure filling the  place in community life that it  ought to, there should be no trouble  having it preferred as the memorial  in plenty of time to get on with its  erection at an early date. But if  after a normal probation it does  not show signs of being here to  stay then it vyould be .a decidely  bad investment for memorial purposes.  Now that at least a year has  elapsed since the subscriptions were  due and payable, and the demand  is made for the use of the funds for  a new but none tlie less commendable purpose, the 'public will be  able to the more intelligently dis  cuss the matter if a statement  were forthcoming as to funds in  hand and those on the books that  are considered collectable, together  with such facts concerning the  original monument idea as are  available l'ur pdhlic aonsumption.  Now that a couple of machine guns  are due here any ..-day additional  provocation is given for further information   on a community project.
