Vol. XV.  CRESTON, B.C., FBII>AY, MAY 18   19_3  ������������������  .---1.-0  Mr. and Mrs. Lochead  were Sunday  visitors at  Kuskanook,   where 7:they  - were trying out   the   lake   fishing" at  that point. ~ ���������y  The first load of lumber for .Jpnpsb  Cretton's new school was placed ^ on  the ground the latter part o?"c*the  week, and the rest -will he hauled  before the coming of high water.?f%r  Due to the-prevalence of driftwood  the ferry is now running on the high  cable, and with a heavy current .good  tinie.ismadeon the trips.  - -W.-'J. B. Biker, water rights branch  engineer, and his assistant. Mr. Evans  of Nelsons were working in this section  the latter part of the week putting in  bore holes and guages along the  Kootenay River as - well as- the bigger  sloughs, the observation on the latter  being for the purpose of seeing if there  is any seepage.  '  The :ocat  road   superintendent^ J.  D. Moore.

Ultimately the road  will he continued  through to connect   with   the  Klockmann road on the   Idaho  side.     M*.  Moore has taken a splendid route-that  will giye'riot'more  than .5 per  cent,  grade whilst the road can ' be built at  minimum cost.   The road, too, should  bring-in settlers as in   the   past, year  many have looked the area over and  were immensely -pleased ' with   it  on  aocount of the fine waters supply.  Tine (United Farmers had their social t*������  session on Saturday   nightr at   which  the feature was a debate toh Capital vs.  _abor, in which the latter side, composed of Messrs.

Mrs. P. _ombardo is a visitor with  Cranbrook friends this week.  y    Auto tourists are* in evidence every  I day almost. Saturday was the record  I day with nye of them coming oS the  boat east bound.  Kuskanook was a very busy spot on  SundHV, several motor parties ftom  Oreston being there, amongst them a  delegation from the board of trade  who are locating the new camp site.  Jack Cameron was a motor visitor  to Cranbrook on Saturday, taking1 his  father, from Greston, U> the St.  Eugene hospital for treatment.  W. T.

Friends of former C.P.R. agent  Goodman will not like to hear that  due U> trouble with his ieg ne has had  to take a couple of months leave from  work at Lumberton in order to take  medical treatment at Cranbrook.  Sirdar   is   becoming  almost exclus  ively a Chevrolet town, the third new  car of that make being delivered here  last   week   by   Xtidgate    brothers   of  Creston to ~~._~H.2ftcKienzae.    *       _.   *,_  Mrs. Catn, who has been laid up for  a time with a "very severe cold is able  to be around again,- and Mrs. Carter,  who has been with her. has returned  to her home io- Nelson.

Clandon, a strong-  minded-woman; and her three children  have returned:: recently to England  from Sfadeira,VM-hiere she. had . taken  her family in infancy to remove them  from the husband she loathes.

Mrs.  Clandon and fier.fausband meet. - They  attempt to comeilo   some  agreement,  but are   hampered   by   their  mutual"  antagonism.      Meanwhile*. Gloria and  Valentine are having their difficulties;  fbr if Valentine has fallen in love more  rapidly,   Gloria/1 after   some   deliberation, does so more thoroughly.    Valentine is more^in lore with being in  love. They quarrel and the outcome  is doubtful. There is a period of  suspense and we wonder how these  two problems will be solved. However, before the curtain falls for .the  last time, tolerance and love conquer,  and we glimpse _ ������������������happy ever after"  future.

Norman Moore, district forester,  Cranbrook,.paid an -official visit to  .Lister the latter part of the week; and  was accompanied by fire warden  James Jory on his tour, of inspection.  The recent rains were surely welcome to this section of the Valley,  quite a large number of ranchers  having each seeded five acres to  inamoth red clover or alfalfa, taking  example from the splendid, stand  obtained by the Williams brotherslast  year.  Fire warden Jas. Jory is wearing  the proverbial broad smile these days.  No fires, and no prospect of any  while the  present   showery   weather  lasts.  The majority of the orchards planted  iu 1921 have a few trees in bloom, and  of which the  owners  are   extremely  proud. -   Wagners  are  in   the   lead.  I -with Wealthys a close second.

Word caste this week of the arrival  of another son fco Mr= and Mrs. A. R.  Webb, formerly of Lister, but now  living in Vancouver. The newcomer  weighs just over nine pound?, and  both mother and son are doing nicely.  The Fred Weston ranch has probably more trees., in bloom than any  other place in. the area, and on- Sunday  Fred was to be seen at alt hours  inviting passers by to view the  wonders nf his orchard, particularly  extoHing the merits of a two year old  Wagner that was literally loaded, with  _3ZS.

A record at chicken hatching was  established at the G. Cartwright  ranch last week when a stray clucker  re appeared in the poultry yard with  a brood of twenty-two healty Barred  Bock chicks.

That's the embarrassing  situation Penrod Schofield had to face  when he unintentionally performed  a  kindness for one ofhis fellow citizens.  It was quite slright when elderly Mrs.  Smith called, him a "little gentleman'  but when his   chums   and   playmates]  echoed the term it became unbearable, j  They made the mistake of calling him  a 'little gentleman" right in front of a  tank of tar left by the street cleaning  department and in   less, than   half  a  minute it's all over.  This is one of the inimitable esca*  padeB pf "Pen rod" Booth Tarkington's  boyhood character who������_ Marshall  "Neilun has transformed to the screen  in his latest attraction which will be  at the Grand Theatre Saturday night.  Disproving the countless critics who  claimed it couldn't be done, Mr. Neilan  has taken the episodes of Booth Tark-  ihgton's creation and welded them into  a. coherent screen feature, bubbling  ovor with mirth and breathing the  spirit of American boyhood.

Charles Slev-art has made liis long and eagerly awaited statement to  Parliament outlining tlie immigration potior of the Dominion Government.  That statement has, however, signally Jailed to arouse- any .enthusiasm either  in Parliament or throughout the country; in J'ac-t, taken on the whole, it lias  proved a grievous disappoint ment to all who were expecting real action in.  regard to this .subject which is admittedly of such vital importance to the  future, development and prosperity ot Canada. -.���������  Thc lengthy delays before the Minister's announcement had given rise to  strong hopes that a lar-reachiag c-.nd comprehensive immigration policy, was  heing evolved. These hopes have been dashed, because therevis nothing new,  original or vigorous in the plans laid before Parliament; on the contrary, the j  policy outlined is so timid, and so palpably ioi lows the lines of least resistance, that it has called forth strong criticism, from even the staunchest of  Liberal newspapers and outspoken opposition from. Government supporters in.i  the Commons.  No one will attempt to deny the truth of Mr. Stewart's statement that  anyone who could formulate an immigration policy for Canada that would be  satisfactory to all people would need to be a second Moses. Mr. 'Stewart  talks optimistically q~ securing -200,000 immigrants for Canada this -year, but  if that number is achieved it will be, not because of the Government's plans,  hut in spite of them and because people cannot be wholly kept away from  Canada.  And, after all. what are 200.000 new "settlers in a country of Canada's  immense, area and almost incalculable Avealth of undeveloped natural re-,  sources, and which is now about the least thickly populated, country in the  world? Two hundred thousand additional people can be absorbed Iij*. Canada  almost without being noticed, especially as it is an admitted fact that this  Dominion loses tens of thousands of people annually to the United States'.  This Dominion should aim at receiving 200,000 from the "British Isles alone,  and as many more from all other countries combined.  At a time whon  Australia is getting thousands of British settlers "Under  the Empire Settlement scheme, the Canadian Government hesitates to adopt  a really effective policy whereby  this Dominion would receive its full share  of immigrants   from the  Old   Country.      Instead,  the  Government   seems  to  place its chief reliance in the Canada Colonization Association.      Granted that  thc Government should utilize to full advantage any and all reputable agencies   for the  obtaining of  settlers, such as  the Association  referred to,  the  C.P.R., Canadian National Railways, and the Empire Settlement scheme, these  should be but auxiliaries to the main Government effort.  Apparently the short-sighted attitude adopted by the leaders of organized  labor on the question of immigration is largely responsible J'or the weak-  kneed attitude of the Government. Labor, as has been repeatedly pointcct  out: in this column, is standing in its own light. No sane Canadian desires  to see wages reduced in Canada below that -which will guarantee to the worker not merely a decent but a goou standard of.living, but the fact remains  that the average Canadian is nol prepared to do the "rough" work which is  required lo be done iu order that raw materials and means of transportation  shall be available for our indusiries, and without such class of labor, Canada'.-* resources must, remain undeveloped and her industries languish.  Furlhoriuore, just so long as Ibis class oi' labor is lacking, and wages remain ar or close* io the peak reached during the abnormal war years, co-sis of  production and transportation must remain so high that the average resident  rnrmot al't'nrd io purchase as freely as he ot laerwi.se would. The inevitable  result I. decreased sales, smaller production, and unemployment, and the  greater t.iio '.m-'MVipIoymont. the smaller the sales and the lower the produc-  *" hmi.

Sodium carbonate In the anhydrous
form, known under the trade name of
soda ash, is one of the principal forms
in which, sodium salts are-used in the

sodium, compounds are ma,de.      It as.
used extensively In the manufacture of

processes  and tanning.      In  the  hydrous form it is marketed under the
trade name of sal soda, washing soda

used in softening water and to replace
soda ash when    purity    is    essential.
Sodium bicarbonate or    acid    sodium

that, the Saunders employed an Indian j ' .	
wheat, called Hard Red Calcutta, which
was also drought resisting.     And anyway, with one thing and another, they
kept at.  work year, after year, crossbreeding the strains, selecting grains,
mixing one wheat merit with another
wheat  merit,   until  at  last   they  had
produced a  wheat  that,  will ripen  in
the   short   summer  of  the  fur   north,
will stand up   against    drought,    will
make, excellent white bread, and will
produce up to T>5 bushels to the acre!

This was admirably demonstrated at last year's Chautauqua by  Hindus, whose talk on the "Russian  Peasant" dispensed information  concerning tbe Russian situation  that both informed and entertained  young and old alike. All these  speakers will in tabloid fashion inform on subjects of everyday inter  est and in themselves are well  worth the price of an adult season  ticket.  The musical features on all sis  days are of the same high order,  and are really too good to miss  even in these��������� days of strenuous  financing.  If Creston is to be favored with  this annual six days of education  and entertainment it will be need  ful for the guarantors to be not  called upon to give iu cash in addition to their labor to -make good  j the amount guaranteed, and tbe  only way to assure this is by the  purchase of season tickets.

His solution of the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway  problem would be to havn a royal  commission investigate the whole  proposition and- the government  follow the recommendations made  by such commission. He roundly  condemned the present policy of  doing public -works on the cost-plus  system.  Had the party not included the  labor representative, F. M. Dixon,  who spoke last, the meeting would  have excited little comment, but  when iu his -rambling effort Mr.  Dixon advised, that the only hope  for the men at Xiister was to plant  their places to corn and go into the  manufacture and sale,of moonshine  whiskey," Mr. Dixon at once lost the  respect of the entire audience, and  the balance of his' effort was indifferently received.

Various matters dealing- with high  tf������e putting! of the old K.V. right-of-  way in shape for the auto rood to  connect with Porthiil and Bonners  Ferry, wiii be discussed, with the  minister 6f public works on the  occasion of his .expected visit here  within a month, the matters, being  left in the hands ofthe transpoitation  committee.  Snpt. Flett of the O.P.R.. ������t  Cran block, will be written to thanking him for restoring the fruit selling  privileges on the local station platform,  and members of the board heartily  endorsed a resolution thanking S. _.

The board is  very much in accord with moves of  this sort and Messrs. C. B. Garland,  C. F. Hayes, and Major Mallandaine  ������ewaauitdto work in conjunction  with the Institute in this effort.  The membership of the board was  constituted a committee to visit  Kuskanook on Sunday to see what  could be done in the way of creating.a  bathing beach and doing any other  work that would tend to bring auto  tourists this way and possibly make a  few days' stay at that point. Thei  forestry department intend putting a  camp site in that locality this year.  Secretary Allan was instructed to  write Nelson Board of Trade asking  what assistance they are-prepared to.  render in case it is found Kuskanook  site can be improved.

Of course you don't!  The mere idea of such a thing is absurd."  "Perhaps he planned it."  "Father!"'      The scorne iu her. tone  stung him like a whip-lash.      "Did he  plan the warrants, too?     The warrant  that hasn't been issued yet,: although  you are going to swear that it was issued yesterday.      Did he* plan that?"  Once in his political career, the Senator had  faced an   apparent  impasse  and had wormed out of it through tolerant laughter.      He had laughed so  long and so genially that the very naturalness of his artifice had won  the  | day for him.      Men thought that'if he  | had had a guilty conscience, he could  j not   have   seemed   so   carefree.       He  ] tried    the    same    trick now with his  i daughter;   hut it  was  a frightful attempt and he gave it up when he saw  its 31.1-success.  "See here, Helen," he burst out, "it  is ridiculous that you should arraign  me in this way. It is true that no  warrant was out yesterday for Wade,  but it is also true that ihe Sheriff intended to issue one, and it was only  ihrough my influence that the warrant  was not issued. Since then Wade,  besides insulting me, lias proved himself a law-breaker. I have nothing  to do with the consequences of his actions, which rest entirely with him.  You have overheard something that  you. were not intended to hear, and as  is usually the* case, have drawn wrong  conchifisions. The best thing you can  do now is to try to forget what you  have heard and leave the matter in  my hands, where it belongs."  He had spoken dominantly and expected her to yield to his will. He  was totally unprepared, well as he  knew her spirit, for what followed.  She   faced  him with glowirig eye's  and   her  trembling  lips   straightened  into a thin, firm line of determination.  He wras her father, and she had always  loved him for what she had felt to be  his worth*  she had    given    him    the  chance   to   explain,   and   he  had   not]  availed himself of it-  he was content  to  remain  convicted  in her  eyes,  or  else, which was more likely, he could  not clear himself.      She realized now  that,    despite   what    she had said in  pique, only the night before, she really  loved Wade, and he, at least, had done  nothing, except free a friend, who, like  himself, was unjustly  accused.      She  could not condemn him for that, any  more    than    she    could    forget    her  father's duplicity.  "I.- won't forget it!" she cried.*" "If  necessary, I will go to Gordon and tell  him what you've done. I'll tell Jt to  every one in Crawling Water, if you  force me to. I don't want to because,  just think what that would mean to  you! But you shall not sacrifice Gordon. Yes, I mean it���������I'll saeriuce  you first 1"  "Don't taile so loud," the Senator  warned her anxiously, going a little  white. "Don't he a fool, Helen. Why,  it was only a few hours ago that you  said Wade should he punished." * ,  She laughed hysterically.  "That was only because I wanted to  get. him away from this awful little  town. 1 thought that if he were���������  punished���������a little, ~if he was made a  laughing stock, he might be ashamed,  and not. want to stay here, Now, I  see that 1 was wrong. I don't blame  him for fighting with every weapon  he can find.     I hope he wins!"

That was. why "���������he leaned forward, impelled to the falsehood  that hung upon his tongue h_ the desperate necessity of saving himself his  daughter's lore and respect���������"I arranged with Moran to have the boy  arrested on 'such a warrant. He is  bound.to be arrested"���������Rexhill struck  the table *-'w|th* his fist���������"and if he  should need a basis for an appear after conviction, he could hardly have  a better one than the evidence of con-  spiracy, which a crooked warrant  would afford. I wanted to give him  that chance because I realized that he  had enemies here and that his trial  might not be a fair one. When the  right moment came 1 was going-to  have that warrant looked Into." -  "Father!"  Helen dropped on.her knees before  him, her eyelashes moist with. tears  and her voice vibrant with happiness.  "Why didn't you explain all that before ;Father? I knew that there must  he some explanation. 1 felt that I  couldn't have loved you alL my life i'or  nothing. But do you-really believe  that any jury would convict Gordon* of  such a thing?"  "I hope not."  Never had Senator Rexhill felt/himself more hopelessly a scoundrel than  now as he smoothed her hair from her  forehead; but he told himself that the  pain of this must be less than to be  engulfed in bankruptcy, or exposure,  which would submerge them, all. Moreover, he promised himself that if future events bore too heavily against  Wade, he should be saved at the  eleventh hour. The thought ot" this  made the Senator's position less hard.  "I hope not, Helen," he repeated.  "Of course, the serving of the warrant  at this time wiU help my own interests, but since* a warrant must be  served, anyway, I feel justified, xtnder  the circumstances, in availing myself  of this advantage."  "Y-e-s, of course," Helen agreed  doubtfully. "Oh, it is all too bad. : I  wish none of us had ever heard of  Crawling Water."  "Well, maybe the Grand Jury will  hot indict him, feeling runs so strong  here," her father continued, and she  took fresh hope at this prospect. "But,  anyway,-he wiii feel the pressure before all is done with, and very likely  he'll be only too "glad to dispose of his  ranch and say good-by to Wyoming  when he is free to do as he pleases.  Then you and he can make a fresh  start, eh? All will be sunshine and  roses then, maybe, forever and aye."  "That's what I want to do���������getaway  from liere; and that was all I_meant  wXen I said to .punish Gordon."  The Senator patted her cheek tenderly and drew a deep breatli of relief.  "By the way, father," Helen said  casually, when she started hack io her  room, a little later, "I saw Miss Purnell on the street yesterday. You  know, she was out when Gordon took  me to see her."  "Well, is she dangerous?"  Helen looked at him in amusement,  and shrugged her shoulders.

Value of Hudson Bay Cruise  Announced that Saskatchewan is Unlikely to be Represented on Trip  Saskatchewan is unlikely to be represented on the proposed cruise  through' the Hudson Bay to be organized ������������������ by the/Federal Government in  August next, according, to the present  intentions oL* the* Saskatchewan Got-  erament, as announced by Premier  Dunning in the legislature. He j.n-  timated ah overland trip "on the Hudson Bay Railway which some western  provinces contemplated 'organizing in  1&23, would have more practical value  than the proposed cruise through the  Straits. ' ,    ...      ���������  Premier Dunning  said   some of*-the  westei-n provinces had    in- mind    organizing an overland trip  to the : bay  .over the Hudson Bay "Railway during  -1923.      ITe  believed that would have  ;more practical valine    than    a    cruise  through the  Straits.      The r^sulLs of  such a trip might be very valuable in  the event of a controversy arising as  to the suitability ol' one v~yother of  -������������������the two ports.     Tbe Government had  been assurred  by high maritime   authorities that  the    trip    through    the  Straits in August avouUI prove nothing,  and that the passengers would not bc  able to see anything that would determine 'the praetlbUHy of the route or  otherwise.

Season  Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills are an all-  year-round    tonic    for ihe blood and  nerves.     But they are especially valuable in the spring when the system is  loaded with impurities as a result of  the indoor life ..of the winter months.  There is no other   season   when   the  blood is so "much in need of purifying  and enriching, and every dose of these  pills helps to enrich the blood.    In the  spring one feels weak and tired���������Dr.  Williams' Pink "Bills give strength.   In  the spring the appetite is often poor���������  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills   develop   the  appetite,    tone    the    stomach, and aid  weak.digestion.      It is in. the spring  that poisons in the blood find' an outlet  in   disfiguring   pimples,   eruptions  and boils���������Dr. Williams'    Pink    Pills  clear the skin because they go to the  root of "the trouble in tlie blood.      In  the  spring  anaemia, rheumatism,  indigestion, neuralgia and   many   other  troubles  are most persistant because  of poor, weak blood, and it Is at this*  time when all nature takes on new life  that  the  blood   most  seriously  needs  attention.      Some  people dose themselves with purgatives at this season,  but these  only further weaken themselves.      A purgative  merely  gallops  through    the    system,    emptying   the  bowels, but does not help  the  blooa.  On the other hand, Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills  enrich the blood which reaches  every  nerve  and  every organ  in  the  body bringing new strength and vigor  to weak, easily tired men, women and  children.

Hope   to   Secure  Satisfactory   Freight  Rate to Make Plan Possible  The Ontario Government is investigating   the   feasibility   of  getting the  coal supply for this province from Alberta.     Hon. Howard Ferguson, in the  Legislature, got this information from  Premier Drury  when  he,; asked  what  was    being    done    to prevent a coal  shortage    next    winter   like the one  which had caused sovmuch misery this  year.*:  .**- "For some weeks this Government  has been in communication with the  Government of Alberta regarding  coal," said Premier Drury. "We have  arranged to get a few cars down to  test its fuel value. We are hoping  that we can get a freight rate on the  National Railways that will make  the transportation of large supplies  of coal Eeasible. After studying the  situation, I. have more faith in a solution, of the difficult problem by bringing In Alberta coal than I have in  either the development of peat or the  importation of eastern coal, at least  Cor this year."
