It  was reported some time ago that  - the .promoters wore given enthusiastic support by the townspeople. A committee ' was appointed to gather information as  'to the status of property owner?.  Not a word has .been said about  the result. Many people of the  other towns of the district are  interested   in   how   the   matter  ��� stands. As there is a paper published in tho town and its editor  is the chief promoter of the incorporation idea, and also one of  the   committee, , it   would  seem  ' that the paper might give sonic  information on the subject.   (  There is no question about the  advantages of incorporation  when in the hands of capable  people; but. when incorporation  is sought simply for the purpose  of giving grafters an opportunity  at local municipal affairs, it is  another thing. Cranbrook has  some good business men, with  whom the question of incorporation rests entirely upon the  character ol persons likely to  got into control of muuicipal  affairs. . It would be interesting  to know, how they have regarded  the schetne.    . 7  Bull River Iron Deposits. ��� 7  '-���'-. iron deposits of considerable  importance have long been  known in Southeast Kootenay,  but because-of their remoteness  , from railways, they have received little general attention.
