(-., Jan. 5.-The an-i nual general meeting of the. Cran-: brook Poultry association' was held ' in the city' hall on Friday evening. ! After the reading and confirmation of the minutes of the last meeting the annual financial statement was read by Mr. A. B. Smith on behalf of the' secretary-treasurer, Mrs. N. Brown. 1 The accounts showed a balance in hand of �;10.55. A letter was read from the government agent withdrawing the use of j the, room in the government building I heretofore used for the association's monthly meetings. Mr. T. S.' G-ill mentioned that a similar privilege had been withdrawn from the Farmers' Institute aipd it was also stated, from the Women's j Institute. It was, after some discussion, decided to take the matter up with the Provincial government authorities through the delegate to the forthcoming meeting in Victoria. A discussion followed as' to the advisability of a winter poultry show, and this was left over to. the incoming executive. The election of officers � resulted as follows :- President-C. R. Sheppard (re-elect-1 ed). Vice-President-A. H. Webb. Secretary-Treasurer-A. B. Smith. Directors - A., H. Levett, 0. E. Kendall, Eri. Slater, T. S. Gill. Mrs. V. Hyde Baker left on last night's train for Rnglaud. The monthly meeting, of the Ctau-brorik .Veterans' association was held in the Royal hotel parlors on Saturday. The constitution and bylaws as presented by' the executive, were adopted- The report of the committee entrusted with the arrangement of the recent camp fire in conjunction with the Boy Scouts'was received- it disclosed a poor attendance on, the part of tho Veterans and the public, and the small resultant balance was voted to the junior 'organization, the Boy Scouts. The next monthly meeting on Saturday, Feb. 1st, will take the form of a whist drive social1 and dance, and the committee look for the sup-, port and assistance of all ex-soldiers, mliitia or volunteers, living in or near Cranbrook. The scope of the association includes all men who have served under the British flag, (whether in the field or not), and all such men should send their names to the secretary, A. H. Webb, if not already members. The fire alarm at 10 a. m. this morning Was promptly responded to by the brigade under. Chief Foster, the scene of the- outbreak, the residence of Mr. George Chapman, a-mile from the lirq hall, being reached under three minutes from the time the alarni was turned in. .The upper portion of the house was well alight, and the intense cold, of 3(1, below, added to the brigade's difficulties. " The seat pf the fire was veaohei} by cutting a hold through the roof; and was quickly overcome. Chtef Faster narrowly escaped suffocation, frcwii tt^fS freezing of his smoke' mask. The efficiency and alertness oj Ctantodok's fire department was never more satisfactorily shown. Th? damage was confined to one room. - A lady iut'nate and a newly born Infant escaped unharmed.

R. workshops at Moncton, :V,B , pi'e t'pw*fl; .heated and.given power by natural g�s. Loudon, Jan. ti.-Mr. Lloyd George has had the satisfaction of being able to announce that the Insurance � Act would go into successful operation on the day provided, January 15. A month ago all the evidence was totally against the government and the act. It seemed then as though the doctors were practically' unanimous in the opposition, and that the act must surely fail through the government's inability to provide medical service; but whether the medical upheaval and the split in the' Unionist party form part of the same movement, or whether the split in the British Medical association merely happens to be coincidental witb Unionist differences, it is a .fact -that at. one and the same time'the Unionists and British Medical association are both split wide open. There is every appearuuoe that the government could gc to the country tomorrow, and obtain a majority for itself oti almost any question it onose to stand Upon, whl\� doctors in the last ten days have flocked to the panels in such numbers that four-flftljB of them have 'been filled, with practical volunteers. Even the quick overturns in politics frequently seen in Amerlott, represent nothing more startling and Bp-ectacu-lar than the Unionist performances in this country withlu little more than a fortnight. Before the Christmas "holidays,, the Conservatives were presenting a united front against a dwindling governmental majority that 'was seeking a means to coyer up virtual Parliamentary defeat, , The Hou|e of Commons has ,re-assembled, after a brief holiday with the majority increased in strength and working like, a time clock bii a burglar-proof safe, and putting into effect the very acts which a jubilant opposition deolared so recently would wreck the ministry and the. Liberal party; while the Conservatives are engaged in a fierce guerilla warfare among'themselves, one of the astonishing features o*f whioh is the concerted attack on that bulwark or English journalism and Tory sentiment, the Times. ', The Thunderer's Vsioe Five years ago aticii* attack* ou the Times would have been considered, Im-, possible. They have1 come -with the auv�iit of Lord. NortUcliffe,. in.tq. its munagoment It still remains to bo seen whether they: represent, any.' r**l loss of power or authority,.or-whether they are merely another e.vidouce> of tho desperate struggle of the ..classes to hold their position. \ V The Dally Mall has, 'without, ques-tiou, tho - largest circulation of any English newspaper;.and though/Lord ing the Times a circulation anything like approaching that of the Daily Mail, it is at least, open to debate whether Jie may not greatly increase the authority of the Times and Its power in the country even though it has ceased to be observed with scrip-, tural dignity. In all this the ability of Mr. Bonarj Law, as party leader, plays a veryi large part. It seems highly probable thSi. Mr. Balfour'B dexterity would have avoided such a situation in his oWn party at a time when all signs pointed to a great victory impending for him and his followers, but which is really a question of minor importance, for Mr. Bonar Law has been only the. instrument to point with particular emphasis, the new influences and new-courses of thought that are rapidly and 'with seeming inevitability coming into the control of English affairs. At a time when Conservatism, which might"almost toe called Tory-Ism, seemed aibout to recover the ground lost iu the conflict of the last two decades, Liberalism, which sometimes seems like Radicalism, suddenly shows again that it is, in fact, the . master. The most determined efforts of a Tory or Conservative cannot force again into the back ground the great, masses of the people of England, who have learned both their right wnd their power.
