BENEFIT DANCE ENJOYABLE
The' Benefit Dance, at which-the
Bush's Orchestra .of Midway kindly
donated their services, was a social and
financial success. There was a large
' crowd, the greater majority of whom
came from the" district. H. A. Nichols
of Midway was master of - ceremonies
and -he carried out his duties in a very
able manner. The orchestra was in
good form" and judging from the number of" encores it was greatly appre-
. ciated. At midnight refreshments were
served' by the .. ladies of -the- Hospital
��� Auxiliary and thej_*ood things to. eat
were*par excellence. At the close of
the dance, the dancers gave^ three
hearty cheers and a tiger for the members of the orchestra. The total proceeds amounted to $160.00. -
GREENWOOD AND
DISTRICT HOSPITAL
��� It is with sincere regret that the
Directors of the above Hospital have to
announce the closing of the Hospital
for a period. Owing to the financial
condition and the medical attendance,
.which debars many of the inhabitants
patronizing the Hospital; the Directors
concluded to close the Hospital for the
.winter period, this being the most expensive period to operate.   The Direct-
���ors will-endeavor to secure the services
of another doctor, and continue to hold
the sympathies of the general public
in organizing means to secure "funds,
��� and on the materialization of these
necessary conditions, prepare, to open
_the Hospital again in the_~ Spring of
1929/
The Directors trust that the general
public will agree with this decision.
CHARLES  KING,
Secretary-Treasurer of the Board
"    of   Directors   of   the   Greenwood
& District Hospital.
YANKS WIN
The Yankees said it with home'runs
:on_Oct.-9th in St. Louis and brought
the 1928 world's series to a crashing, record-busting conclusion with their
fourth straight victory over the Card-
'inals. Five crackling circuit clouts,
three of them by the one and only
Babe Ruth, four of them in two successive innings and all of them sounding
taps for the Redbirds, enabled the
Yanks" to win by the decisive count of
7 to 3 and record a new world's series
achievement by making their second
successive clean sweep over National
league champions.
DEATH  OF W. H. BROTEN
Mrs. A. Sater left on Tuesday morning for Seattle having, been called-there
owing to the sudden death of her
father, W. H. Broten. The late Mr.
���Broten is an oldtimer of Greenwood
having lived here when the building
boom was on. He was a contractor
helping to build the Armstrong Hotel
and the Wood Block. Mrs. Sater has
the sincerest sympathy of all -in her
great loss.

' Victoria.���Prolonged argument between the, Granby'Consolidated Mining
& Smelting Co. and the West Kootenay
Power and Light Co., with itsN close
associate, ��� the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co., has resulted in' the
diversion'of the'" Granby- company's
heavy ore shipments rfrom the Trail
smelter to a smelter in "Tacoma, according to advices -received at the
Parliament Buildings on October 4th.-
- This is -the upshot "of. the present
power ���, rate dispute which " involves
much of the southern interior and on
which Grand Forks City has" made an
appeal to the government for intervention.
The Granby Company, it is understood, here, objects "not only to"-the
power rates charged "to'it by'the West
Kootenay .Company,1- but also to" the
charges of the Consolidated Company
for'smelting of ore mined at Allenby.
As a result, it has diverted its enormous
business to Tacoma,-government officials have;been informed.
Power, service to Allenby is involved
indirectly m this dispute'.
At a hearing before the water board
some" time ago, solicitors for the West
Kootenay Company stated that their
firm would continue to supply elec;
tricity to, Allenby so long, as .the Granby company smelted its ore at Trail.
Beyond that they would make no commitment'whatever.
For the moment any stoppage in
power is prevented' by an injunction
granted by the Appeal Court after Mr.
Justice Murphy of the Supreme Court
had refused to continue such an order.
The. legal questions^ involved will be
argued shortly before the Appeal Court
and meanwhile, Granby .ore is moving
out of,the province.-
This condition, members .of the government have been advised, has
caused widespread anxiety all through
the southern interior. Residents 'and
business men there are awaiting the
outcome of the court proceedings now
under way in the fear; that''if Mr., Justice Murphy's judgment is upheld,
electrical power may be turned off outside the immediate neighborhood of
Rossland. "      . .      ".    _
'-���Mr.-Justice'Murphy held that the
West Kootenay Company could not
legally sell power outside --that area,
although the Southern Okanagan district, the "government's South Okanagan irrigation scheme, the Granby
operations and many important "communities are dependent on West Kootenay power.
" Grand Forks' formal appeal to the
government to step in and solve the
difficulty-by-enlarging-the-operating
radius of the West Kootenay Company
is before the provincial secretary's department here, and will go before the
executive council in ihe next few days
for consideration. The government is
expected to fix a date-for hearing the
appeal, and the representations of all
interested parties including the power
company and the Granby operators.   ;.

(Cranbrook Courier)
A weir known figure in lumbering
circles here was removed on Saturday
last when'Frank Barrett, aged 54 died
from loss of blood as a result .of his
falling' and striking his head on
the curb of a sidewalk on the pre?
vious evening. Barrett was found in
an unconscious ^condition by Charles
Buckless who arranged for his removal
to the hospital.
The diseased was born in Gatineau
Point, province of Quebec, and followed
logging as a trade there and after he
came to B^C. thirty-three years ago.
He was well and favorably known in
the'district and quite a favorite with
his old associates as an agreea_ble companion and a skilled lumberman. He is
survived by his father, formerly promi-
ent as a lumberman and river driver
in Ontario and Quebec, and by two
brothers, Victor, of Greenwood, and
Peter, resident-at Vancouver.
The funeral was held from St. Mary's
Church on Wednesday, "Reverend' J,
P. Ehmann, O. M. L, officiating, Victor
Barrett being the only relative present.
The pallbearers were Joseph Brault,
Paul Seguin,'Fred Smith and A. Fil-
bish. Other mourners were old friends
of the deceased pioneer lumberman. -

fruit on British'Columbia tables, compulsion"" of the Doukhobors tciobserve
the laws of the province were among
things asked "at, the Kootenay and
Boundary Women's Institute Conference held here last week.   -
Foreign Fruit' Used
Many'delegates spoke on the degree
to which foreign-fruit was consumed
in British Columbia,' while the local
fruit had difficulty in finding a "market.
Formation of consumers leagues,pledged
to the use of tlie home product, was
advocated, and in" this connection -' it
developed that Mrs._J. D. Gordon, provincial president, acted, on this line in
Victoria some years-ago.-After a discussion of over an hour, the following
resolution, presented'by Mrs. Margaret
Kayes of Rock Creek and Mrs. Joseph
Richter of Midway, ,'was unanimously
passed: ��� ~ ' . r
, "Whereas, The farmers and fruit
growers of Kootenay are * suffering
severely from lack of market for their'
product; and
"Whereas, Fruit, from'' Okanagan,
Wash., is sold m British Columbia as
the product of Okanagan, "B.C.; and
."Whereas, The people of British'Columbia have not been'educated in the
dietetic value-,-of -northern grown
fruit; therefore, be it '      -
"Resolved, That^we ask the restaurants, groceries,._ hotels, railways and
steamship, lines to> feature British Columbia fruit and place it on their bills
of fare at a reasonable price, a price
within the reach of ordinary citizens;
and that all institute publicity ahd agriculture conveners be asked to aid in
educating the general public in the
wholesome effect of the addition of
fruit to the daily bill of fare."
In this connection/' it-* was felt that
the record of Mrs. G^ A. Hunter of
Nelson, whose family of four consumed 13 boxes of apples last season,
was"" eminently-worthy of emulation.
The Doukhobor
"Resolved, That this conference request the government to do all,in-*"its
power to compel the Doukhobors to
obey all the laws of this province, par-
ticularly the school law,_and that_re__,
lating to registration of births, deaths
and marriages." "   -
This-resolution passed unanimously.
Rural School Financing
Problems of "rural education occupied
much time of the resolution session.
A resolution offered from Rock Creek
and Midway, "that all property owners
outside of- the three-mile limit be assessed for school taxes," 'brought into
relief the problem of the school board
that has, to provide accomodation and
instruction for children of people living
beyond its boundaries, Some of these
people made voluntary contributions, it
developed, and similar cases were cited
by other* delegates, but it was said they
could not be taxed. It was also pointed
but that no school board could refuse
pupils of school age. The only solution
suggested was that the government
should be asked to enlarge the boundaries of such a district, so that the
area served would share the taxation.
The convention referred the resolution back to Rock Creek, for more
complete information.
Another resolution from these two
institutes, to request the department
of education "to provide instruction in
handicraft and needlecraft in all rural
schools, either by permanent centres
or by travelling instructors," was also
indorsed by the Robson delegates, with
special reference to manual training,
which was really what the Boundary
institutes themselves had principally in
mind. Robson, with quite a number
of foreigners in its school area, wanted
manual training, if possible jointly with
Castlegar, but could see no prospect of
convincing a majority of'its property
owners that an increase in taxes was
desirable.
Mrs. V. S. McLachlan, provinciaLsu-
perintendent, pointed out that the
school district that was" willing to tax
itself for the purpose had full governmental* encouragement, as the education department would bear half the
expense of night classes. These classes,
however, while they were available for
a great variety of subjects, could not
be opened for pupils of school age.
In view of the machinery already existing for securing this kind of instruction, the resolution was withdrawn
at' the conference's suggestion."
A further report on the Conference
will.be published in the next issue.

SD-LMONTHS-IS-TERM-FOE-HILTS
(Penticton Herald)
Guy Hilts, aged 18; pleaded guilty
before Judge Brown in Provincial
court on Wednesday * morning on a
charge of theft and was sentenced to
six months in Oakalla, with hard labor
attached. In giving the sentence,
Judge Brown mentioned that he would
have given a suspended sentence if
the lad had not been convicted on
similar,charges before.
In Greenwood he has been given a
three-month term at Oakalla, and at
Oliver he was fined $50 for stealing,
so that the boy's character was such
as did not warrant a suspended sentence, said the judge.
The case in which he figured this
time was the result of stealing a wallet containing $55. He and T. O. Pettypiece had come from Keremeos and
after imbibing rather freely they went
to stay at the Hilts home. In the
morning Pettypiece found that his
wallet, which had contained $70 on
his departure from Keremeos, had disappeared.
- On later evidence he found that Guy
Hilts might have .stolen the wallet, so
he laid a charge against the boy, who
confessed the'theft* to the police but
stated that there was only $55 in the
purse when he had obtained it.
Hilts was committed for' trial by
Magistrate ���T. A. Pope and came before Judge Brown on Wednesday morning. He pleaded guilty but denied the
fact that there was more than $55 in
the purse at the time of the theft. As
there, was no way to ascertain whether
this statement was true, this part of
the1 discussion was dropped.
H. H.- Boyle was the only lawyer
present and he acted for the Crown.
No defense was offered, but a petition
had been circulated asking that the
sentence be light.

Pigs to be Judged on Friday -
A. G. Clarry will be in Midway on
Friday, Oct. 12th to judge the Boys and
Girls Clubs pigs.   The farmers had a _
Bee" to erect pens for the'pigs which '
will be brought here for judging.
- Mr. Clarry comes from Ontario and
is an official hog grader in that.pro- - "
vince.  He has been loaned for three
months    by    the    Swine    Division
of the Dominion Livestock Branch for
special work in this province.
.After the judging is completed,.Mr.
Clarry will give a series of demonstrations on feeding and grading.   He will   '
also cut up carcasses and so show the
class of animal that proves most profitable to the producer and is also most
in market demand. **
Another point that will be touched
on by Mr. Clarry will be the marketing
problem. The advantages-- of making
co-operative shipments in carload lots
to a big market like Vancouver, instead
of selling individually locally and so
bringing down prices, will be impressed
on farmers. In the East arrangements
can be made with"'a railway company
at a slight additional cost to pick up
hogs at several,adjacent towns and he
will recommend that steps in that direction be taken here. For instance,
Grand-Forks,-Midway-and-Rock-Creek.���
could easily make up a car between
them and the returns would show a '
worth-while increase.

B. C. TROUT
, " A preliminary report on the-British
Columbia Trout investigation being
conducted by J. R. Dymond sets forth
a description of the various trout which
is most interesting.      A
My present understanding of the
characteristics* of the various forms of
black-spotted trout found. in British
Columbia waters is as follows:
Steelhead is a term applied to a.
certain large trout when taken in salt
water or when-it first moves from salt
water into fresh water to spawn or for.
any other reason. It belongs to the
genus Salmo to which also belong the
Atlantic salmpn and the brown and.
salmon trout of. Europe; More distantly it is related to';r the Pacific salmon.
V In the sea and for a short time after it
enters fresh water it is: bluish above
. and shows - comparatively .' f ewA spots.
In fresh water, .it gradually changes
from blue to olive; green above and
more and larger spots, appear. and a
reddish, band appeal's along the side-
more pronounced and of a deeper'color
���under certain conditions. .The. steel-
head is "said to occur.along the North
American Coast from Lower California
to Alaska. It spawns in fresh:water,
in British Columbia in theAwinter or
early spring and in certain parts of: the
province it makes more or less regular
migrations into fresh water at other
seasons.   As is the case with both the
Atlantic and Pacific salmons, the young
steelhead remains in fresh water for
some time before migrating to the sea.
The time spent in fresh water varies
from one to several years, and some
are believed never to enter salt water,
being permanent residents of fresh
water.
Rainbow Trout
The term "Rainbow" is popularly
applied to black-spotted trout which
show a red or purplish band along the
side. Hence an individual trout may
be a Rainbow at one period of its life
and a steelhead at another. Not all
Rainbows, however, migrate to the sea
and become steelheads, for some re-
main-permanently-in-fresh-water_either_
by choice or because they are landlocked. Some of the forms which have
been isolated for long ages from their
sea going relatives have developed
characteristics by which they may be
distinguished from them. On the other
hand it is obviously not always possible
to say- whether a trout is of the fresh
water or marine type. All Rainbows
are no doubt able to live in salt water
and forms which attain only a small
size in their native lake or stream
would probably grow to a much larger
size in the sea. Vice versa young steel-
heads if confined in a brook or small
lake would probably never grow very
large. Whether rainbow trout that
have lived for ages in fresh water
���would attain the size of our typical
steelheads if liberated ,in the ocean
when young, is a question which we are
as yet uanble to answer. In this connection it is of interest to mention that
brown trout taken .from Dorsetshire in
England to New Zealand quickly acquired a migratory habit and became
large silvery fish, inhabiting the sea for
the most part and ascending .rivers to
spawn.  '������-.'��� A ��,.
. We do not know why some,trout.go
to the sea while others.of identically
the same form so--far as we .now know,
remain in*fresh water, but the absence
of sufficient food is undoubtedly a contributory cause. There are some races,
however, which are apparently hereditarily prone to live in fresh water and
it is of importance to be able to
recognize these fresh water races, for
in artificial propagation of trout. it
would be a mistake to.propagate for
angling purposes a form of trout that
went to sea before it became large,
enough to be legally taken by angling.
Kamloops Trout
The Kamloops gets its name from
Fisheries Branch, Dominion- Department of Marine and Fisheries, is closely
related to the steelhead, but it'is not
identical with the steelhead commonly
taken in salt water, along .the British
Columbia coast.' It is believed to be
one of-the races which'prefer to remain
in fresh water, although - it- would not
be surprising if. individuals occasionally
descended to salt water. It, attains 'a
good size and if-meets with the ap.r
proval of anglers as a game; fish it
would, seem to be one.iof thei;ihost
desirable species. The a occurrence of
thin, long-headed specimens ("slabs")
in some lakes where this- species has
been planted,.is probably due to the
lack of sufficient food for trout in
habiting the lake.
Cut-throat Trout
The cut-throat gets its name from a
deep red coloration on the' under side
of'the-lower jaw. It also has teeth on
the back ,of the tongue in addition to
the teeth farther forward on the tongue
which all trout possess. As compared
with the steelhead-Rainbow-Kamloops
series of trout, the snout of the cutthroat is more rounded. These characters, however, are all variable. For
example, the red under the lower jaw
varies from a deep red coloration covering the entire area under the lower
jaw to a small, pinkish spot and in
many cases to the entire absence of
any trace of red. Similarly the teeth
on the back of the tongue vary from a
definite series of strong teeth to a small
patch of weak teeth and in some cases
to an entire absence of such teeth.
The recognition of cut-throats lacking
teeth on the back of the tongue and
red under the lower jaw is often difficult: In some cases it is necessary to
have a considerable number of specimens for it is often possible to recognize a species when several specimens
are available for examination when/it
is quite impossible from a single specimen. There appears to be a number-of
forms of cut-throat trout in British
Columbia. Not only do cut-throats
from one region differ markedly from
those taken in another district, but it is
believed that at least two forms are
sometimes found in the same body of
water. Some cut-throats migrate to
the sea, and take on the steelhead
coloration. In one lot of five specimens supplied me as steelheads there
was vone cut-throat, indistinguishable
from" the others except by minute examination. The cut-throat is very common in "many parts of the province,
perhaps commoner than is generally
believed.
"THE SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS"
Trained animals���ten of' them���supplement the efforts of a large and capable human cast to contribute something "different" for the entertainment
ot local screen patrons in "The Shepherd of the Hills" the film version of
the Harold Bell Wright novel, to "be
shown at the Greenwood Theatre on
Saturday, October 13th.
A bear, a deer, a wolf, a racoon, a
marten, a squirrel, a dog, two mules
and a * horse represent the trained
animal portion of the cast. Thousands
of sheep and many other domestic
animals represent the animal "extras"
of the company.
Reproducing the human characters
of Wright's book are Alec B. Francis,
in the title role; Molly O'Day and John
Boles, as the lovers; Matthew Betz as
the villain of the piece; Romaine
Fielding, Otis Harlan, Joseph Bennett
and other notable players.

HERE AND THERE
The Australian Government ha9
just completed a deal for eighteen
foundation heifers and two bulls
trom 3. D. McGregor and Sons, the
widely known Aberdeen-Angus
breeders of Brandon. The animals
will"be selected frou Mr. McGregor's Glencarnock herd'by the head
herdmaster of the Australian Government and shipped by tlie Canadian Pacific Railway by way of
Vancouver. This shipment apart
from some purebred dairy cattle to
the Orient from British Columbia,
is probably the first exportation of
^purebred cattle from Canada over-
. seas.
Another link has been forged in
the air express services extending
from the Gulf of St. Lawrence into
the heart of Canada.     The Canadian Pacific Express have undertaken an  air ��� express  service between Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary in co-operation with Western
Canada Airways and in connection
with air mail routes.    This means
.that express matter shipped from
A England may be picked up from incoming Atlantic liners at Rimouski,
speeded by air via Montreal to Ot-
-- tawa and Toronto, placed   aboard
.westbound trains, trans-shipped to
. airplanes at Winnipeg, and deliver-,.
��� ed direat to the consignee at Regina
or Calgary, or placed on a train
again if the destination is further
west, putting the shipment  many
days ahead of the usual service.
A six and three-quarter-pound
speckled troat, a monster of its
kind, has been, caught on the Nipigon River by Philip L. Peterman,

_ne-of the most outstanding groups of eastern
business' men that ever visited western Canada
together accompanied Mr. E; W."Beatty,-chairman
and president of.the Canadian Pacific on his recent
��� annual tour over the company's, western lines.   The
"party which -was representative of the financial and
.industrial-activities,of all" Canada left Montreal-at:
the end' of August and spent a full month travelling
-about the country between .-Montreal and'the Pacific
' coast.        .      -, ,      -      X    ' -
The purpose bf the tour was t'o become-more conversant with western conditions and problems���and
more particularly to visit The Peace River .country,
most of the party never having been there before. ^
The party returned east with' optimistic views regarding the entire country visited. ' .
"I have neverjseen the country looking better at
harvest time," said Mr. Beatty on his return, "and in
. all my experience I have not previously found sogen-
eral a-feeling of complete confidence in this#country
and* its possibilities as was observed in the cities and
districts where we made stops'and had an opportunity
of talking things over with their .representative "citizens. More than ever am I impressed withjthe potentialities of Canada's north land.   I. think it almost-not
- too much to say thatXanada's future lies to the north,
and that.the opportunities' already discernible there
are a challenge to "the oncoming 'youth of the older
parts of the country.
"We had an< excellent opportunity bf learning this,"
said Mr. Beatty, "during our "visit to the Peace River
country which most of us had not previously seen. As
a result of that visit we .have arranged-to take over
' and operate the E.D.- & B.C. Railway, which arrange
ment, I believe, will prove very greatly to the advantage of that'eouhtry-and the people who livs there. ��*&
"It is a beautiful as well as a fertile country," continued Mr. Beatty. 'I can perhaps liken it best of all
to some parts of old Ontario. It is- a rolling country,
in some places quite heavity wooded and much broken
by lakes and rivers. The soil is generally a rich, black-
loam and highly productive, "and although there, is a
steady movement of "settlers" into the area which will
no doubt., increase in volume "as it. becomes - better
known,1, its extent is so great that it must be years
before the available land is all taken up."* Our party .
took every, ad-vantage of the opportunities offered to
see the country. We motored over three hundred and
fifty mile's of ��� its excellent roads,.and almost every-,
where we found fine farms or newly broken homesteads
and in some .cases well-settled communities having
every appearance of prosperity. In town and country
alike we met with a cordial.welcome and'I,think our
visit was taken as a friendly gesture of interest on the -.
part of the.East towards the new, far Northwest. We
motored over the British Columbia border line as far
as Rolla and.as faT north as-Peace River"Landing,
and still feel.-we. did but touch the edge bf Canada's
great -north." .. "".*.'
"It is hardly possible to say what the next few'years
will bring to that .country, but we must recognize the
fact that there is a new Canada being opened up well
beyond what we have previously considered to be the
northerly limit" of habitation and production. We hope
that we shall very shortly be able to go to work on
the task of putting the E.D. & B.C. Railway into
better shape to serve the communities it reaches. Much
money will have to be spent in order to bring it up to
standard ahd it will "also take some time.

There has been a record crop. The West will continue to flourish. In a thousand cases, a few
years:of struggle with nature has been rewarded.
And what will it mean? more roads, more cars, more
'machinery, more streets and stores and,homes and
radios." A brisker trade,'more industrial activity in
the east, more shipping and more car loadings per
mile.   More wheels turning all over the country.
But the man whose labours by the favour of
Providence has. been mainly responsible for all this.
His threshing done, he has time now to think of other
things than wheat and rain and frost and sun and
harvesters, and thenrail and steamship companies are
anticipating his thought. In a few weeks now, "there
will be a feverish packing of bags, a collecting of the
children, a donning of new hats and shoes and a rush'
for the trains.      ' r       ' .,-,,'
This, say the transportation officials- will be the
year bf the home-going. * The English, the Jersey
Islanders, the Scotch and the Irish and ..the Continentals too. The Canadian Pacific officials foresee so
great a trek, that they have already planned .many
special trains out of the West, and many steamship
sailings which will facilitate the movement and en-
Bure Christmas and New Year's with the old folk
randan inexpejuuya journey. Ib comfort and luxury.
The Minnedosa will-give the more fortunate ones
a sailing from Montreal'on November-23 for Glasgow,
Belfast and Liverpool. On the seventh of December
the Metagama ancl Montclare will sail from Saint
John, one for Cherbourg, Southampton and Antwerp
and the other for the Liverpool run. The Melita,
sailing ori'the fourteenth, will stop en route at .St.
Helier with a large number of home-going Channel
Islanders and the Duchess of Atholl saiiing on the
fifteenth will take the last of those going home for
Christmas via Glasgow or Liverpool. The sailing of
the Montroyal on the twenty-first is' for those to.
whom New Year's means more.
Just to illlustrate to what great extent" a' good
western crop effects industry; one printing establishment was kept busier than usual for some time
printing an' extra order of Canadian Pacific travellers
cheques and money orders. These wi:!, an o_��fic:al
said, be sent or carried by ho'mcgoars to--prr.c*tica!:y
every quarter of the civilized world. Whatever tbe
world crop conditions' may be, the Canadian crop
will-he-appreciated almost wherever men cut bread. /

The telephone
y was ready
as soon as it
was needled
The day after fire had
destroyed a .Vancouver box
factory, the .company that
had suffered from the
flames opened a temporary
office nearby, and was ready
to resume business.
Telephone men were
equal, to the occasion and
by 8:30 a.m. had strung
wires and provided the
necessary installation work
to give telephone service to
the temporary quarters.
In short, as the result of
the prompt and efficient action of our men, telephone
service was available as
soon as the box company
was ready for it.
