Packet of WILSON'S FLY PADS WILLFUL MOPE rLIESTHAN QF ANY !.Y (ATCHfP Clean to handle. Sold by gists, Grocers und General Cranbrook, B. C., July meet- ng of the Cranbrook District Conser- aosociation, called last evening to appoint a candidate to contest the f Cranbrook riding against Dr. J. H: i King, Liberal candidate, resulted in j jtwo separate meetings being, held and j ia breach in the party that cannot be iliealed. The original meeting place of ithe delegates .was announced as Clapp jhall where arrangements were" made [for staging the biggest political fight ;in. Cranbrook. The newly-formed Young Conservative association, by clever manipulation, secured control of the building, thus forcing the old members, the fac- tion, to other quarters, which they did, renting the Edison theatre. Both factions-' worked overtime to line the delegates with that particular 'element. Caven supporters were most successful with outside delegates, se- curing representatives from Kimberly, Moyie. Wycliffe, Marysville and Yank, 14 in all, together, with the majority of Cranbrook delegates. Approxi- mately 150 supporters of Mr. Caven: were present. Credentials were post-; ert .and passed upon hi" the commit- tee appointed for that purpose. Speeches Vere then delivered by Dele- gate Drew of Kimberly, Benjamin Riley of Yahk, the delegate of that place, and W. F. Cameron, J. B. Hall, S. Santo and others. Mr. Drew declared the method used by the old i party followers was to 'railroad" the business of the association. Control of the patronage was the sole object view. At this juncture Chester Staples, the Wyeliffe lumberman, volunteered (to carry the flag of truce to the op- [posing faction in an effort to unite the warring elements, but his mission proved futile. The more oil he poured on the troubled wafers the greater (he wave of indignation which swept against T. D. Caven. W. B. McFarlane, presi- dent of the local association, took the floor and denounced the local member. He said the attitude of Mr. Caven lo- wards Premier Bowser in the caucus on the prohibition issue, -when the i Cranbrook member openly attacked the leader of the government, was a[ disgrace to the party. The said C'a-j ven was no loager a fit man to repre-j sent the Conservatives of, the Cran-j brook riding and tbat the premier no j longer wanted him as candidate. He concluded by saying the element j which elected Mr. Caven is no longer] in the district. Other speakers were; A. E. Watts and J. D. McBride. Mr. Watts was the only delegate from outside points present at this meeting.) About twenty in all were in attend- ance. T. D. Caven was made the unani- mous choice of the Young Conserva- tives, being tendered an ovation when he rose to address the convention. A. E. Watts of Wattaburg was likewise given the unanimous choice of his riding. Both sides claim victory and each say the meeting of the other was invalid. Premier Bowser has been communicated with by.wire and ft in believed he will make a hurried trip to adjust matters, although It in cer- tain his mission will avail tittle. The split has resulted In a largo number of men quitting the party. Elections will, bo, hold September Mth, with nominations .on August 3rd, MRS. GREEN'S WEALTH DIVIDED Bellows Falls. Vt.. July will of Mrs. Hetty known as the wealthiest woman in America, leaves the bulk of her estate to her son, E. H. R. Green, and her daughter, Mrs. Matthew Astor Wilks.
