Mrs. ^dna MacLennan, wife of Don-lald MacLennan, manager of the Bank Peace Is supposed to prevail now that an.armiatice has been signed, bjit It doesn't seem to apply to Cranbrotjk. There is evidently war to the finish there and the Cranbrook Herald la one bfi the' factions engaged in the struggle. We read this lecture to a eitisen of Cranbrook in the last issue of the jfierald: - f � TMf unwarranted and vengeful in-, terference has resulted in disorganising the staff to the textent that the linotypa operator has quit and the pressman is on the lookout for another job. The reason the linotype opera-.; tor gave foi' throwing np his Job was that Mr. Beale threatened to have him .dismiaaed at the first meeting of the company ' unless he submitted to Beale's authority and rejected that of the managing editor. The pressman is on the lookout for a new position for the same reason. Mr. Behle says it makes the British blood ;boll in his veins to have his authority ignored. We �re ot the opinion that the reason foi' his wrath Is that he has been jarred loose from the Herald treasury to the tune of about 1780.00 a year, and the service he was rendering to the Herald waa similar to that of a mosquito. We have British bIPod in our own veins aadlota ofjlt, the's^me strain*as tlie H. H. Asquith, with,a mixture ot good Stirling Scotch, and we have this advantage that we ware born in Canada, which makes. UB three-fold a Brl-tlsher.'
