Were Well Used and En- joyed Outing tion Sessions Helpful (By D. H. Elton) Nelson, July Uu.-T.lie eighth annual convention of tho Albertn find East- ern British Columbia Press Associa- tion which convened in the city of. C., on the 25th, Sfith and 27th lust's., was one of, the most eir- joyabic and educational gatherings of newspaper -men -evcv held.In the west, it is not the object or purpose of tllis article to enter into any thorough dis. ciisslon of the work of the convention, but merely to review in a general way the 'hare outline of the work car- ried on, places of interest that wero visited and the splendid reception and entertainment tendered on all sides. The L'adles- One particularly pleasing and dis- tinctive feature of the convention was the large number of ladies accompany- ing Ihcir feature that seemed in itself to lend more lo the marked success ot the sessions held than anything else. The Delegates and the Trip .The delegates from Cardston, Ma- grath, Warner. Bow Island, 'Medicine Hat and the city, booked on the ''Re- gular" Thursday morning. At Mac-j leod. they were joined by a special j .sleeper, occupied entirely Ijyj representatives from Kdmonton, Le-j due. Red Deer, Innisfaii, Ponoka, Cal-] gary. Glcichen. tc. En route to Kcotenay Landing, I'ember of Maclcod, Nsrwlch of tho Fernic Ledger, Deane of the Cran brook iferalrt .and JhiCluro of the Oreston Review, were picked up. At Creston W. O. Foster, of the Nelson Daily News, formally received, the delegates and from'that time until tho "finale" was "everywhere pres- ent looking altei then mteiesls ind superintending the "excursion side' of the program, .which proved to be the "big side" of the affair C. P. R. Representative Tlie delegates were also accompan- ied enrouto by F. E. Troutman.i.per- representative.of the vice pre- sident of the Canadian Pacific Rail- .way. This .worthy gentleman himself in at ill times to ibiist the members in in iking the trip as enjoyable and pleasing us nos-1 sible- and his presence added much to tho sum tclal of entertainment during the three days Nelson's Publicity Commissioner After a dr.light-rul ride over the wal.-ars of the Kootenay Lake' on the C.

Just before reaching Nelson a little gasoline hunch ran up nongside the bo it ind e 'cok o board -Mr. Currl-o, publicity cominis sioner foi the citv of who was laden with badges, programs, etc. for the delegates; .Mr. Currie some! Ive'or six. years ago was a reporter on the Lethbrldge Daiiv (sews The Mayor's .Welcome Arriving at Nelson and finding ho- tel accommodation and reservations ill arranged, the first thing in order was a business session in the city hail. Here Mayor Annablo delivered an address of welcome-, in which he assured the delegates that so long as they wore their -bitdges the police would pass them.up and they would have all the liberties of the city. The mayor reviewed the history of the which be said meant a 'water people" (and some of the de- legates looked and quoted tfca words of Sir Wilfrid Lanrier that 'Nelson was the Venice of North America." Following .the 'mayor's ad- dress the report of the president re: suited in the selection of Mr. Jenn- ings, of ihe Edmonton Journal, presi- dent, with C. F. Hayes, of the Edmon- ton Bulletin, secretary, Edmonton FoV 1913 t There was a lively contest in the balloting for. the selection ot the place for holding the 1913 convention between Jlcdlcinb Hat and Edmonton" and Ihe -running was very monton winning out by a narrow mar- gin. With the appointing ot commit- tees and the outlining of the program for the coming two days, the .session was brought to a close. John M. lmrie'5 Address Friday-morning was occupied by a most, interesting and instructive ad- dress from John Imrie, secretary of the Canadian Press Association, and editor of Printer and Publisher, Toronto. .Mr. Imrlc's address was on the "Canadian Press Association sys- tem of cost finding for combined newspaper and job-printing; and was listened to witli the keenest attention. Probably no man in the Dominion is so well, versed In this subject as Mr. Imrie and we are perfectly safe in saying, that non-3 are more apt and explicit in the eluci- dation of the same. Sir. Imrie is first a ml last a Draltlcal man. a. clean cut. honest, straightforward hobbyist of the jirst waters. It was James J. Blaine who once said, "If you want to get tho best there is in a man, get him to talk on his hobby." This sub- ject is a great, big, business, common- sense hobby of John's and the style and manner of address with which he portrays the same and clinches his arguments and elicits questioning, makes It first interesting, secondly im nresslve and thirdly profitable. It for no other thing the address of Air. Jmrie alone was well worth all the the trouble, time and expense neces- sary to attend the convention. It was the unanimous opinion that sudh an eminently practical talk could not fail to be productive of splendid re- sults for the'newspaper men with job printing plants and the weekly news- paper men in particular: iMr. Imrie's address wlli be printed verbatim in tile association's report and also in. the Printer and Publisher and other "Print" papers, throughout the Do: minion and 'the United States. The address with tile-discussion which naturally occupied the en- tire session. -Canadian Club Luncheon Friday noon the rnenVbers were the guests, of. the Canadian .Club at. a luncheon given in. the Slrathcona Ho- tel., ..Mr.-Buchanan was the speaker and he took up the subject of 'the freedom of the press and the great necessity there 'was for the news- papers looking after the public inter- ests regardless of political affiliation, instanciils the Calgary Herald in th-a railway propaganda and the Free Press as to the matter of express and freight rates throughout tho west. In moving a Vote of thanks to the speak- er the attention of-the members was again called to of the Nelson district, hot for its min- erals and ore deposits but also for the possibilities of'fruit raising, the goods being in on the speaker's table. Trip to Bonnington'. Tails and Slbcan T omptly at 1 30 the delcg ites took train for Falls oh -the Kootennl river. A ".short stc.p was made at the fall's and time given the delegates for the Inspection of the powei houses wheie the electricity is generated fci the entire east Ivoot enai district. It is one .of-the largest and biggest -plants on 'the'North Am- el lean continent Continuing on down the iher for i mile ci so to Slocan Lake the delegates- were escorted to the Creel'Lodge where fishing rods were available for ail who .cared to vie with Isaac Plenty of Iwats and1 expert oarsmen, -bld-timeio at the business, hand to as sisf in "flying" and what not. Some three or four delightful hours were spent .here" and" a pretty good sized catch was.made. A couple of large baskets were .filled with 'Rainbow Trout." and the'delegates were'able to eat their! own fish at the St a'Vona 01 morning Creel Lodge is one of the finest river side -nd lake resort H is located right in the depths ot-the woodland thicket and is just about as .near to the heart of nature as it is possible to be. Yet withal the conveniences are strictly modem and .up-to-date, and Creel Lodge can boast of-being as ahl; and capablj managed as inj of the larger and perhaps better .known resorts throughout th-a'country. There is one thing sure and certain, and that is that, the delegates and their wives could one and all .bear great testimony c.r the good things to eat and drink ami of the great quantity of fish to be numerous were the tales of -those thit "got iwn and were alwajs the big ones Ladies' Smoker Returning to Nelson Friday evening the delegates entertain-sd at a smoker in !he Nelson Yacht Club house, while the ladles ;werie treated to a splendid reception in the Strath- oona Hotel.: The .smoker was of: a high order and a business out -of the ordinary, for a smoker. The needs of the Nelson district were forcibly placed before the delegates by Messrs Fowler and Startle, and -the- concen- sus of opinion was to-.the. effect that something should be done to renew the bounty oh silver-lead., ft was shown that it community of interest prevailed between the Kootenais and the people of the prairie provinces, and that the concern of one was the. the other. Of the visiting members. .Messrs. J. H. Woods, F. J. Deane. M. fi. Jennings and D. H. Elton delivered addresses. Special Steamer and Kailo Having chartered the C. P. H. steam er Ihe delegates left Nelson on Saturday morning at 3 o'clock for Kaslo. The steamer was crowded with visitors and friends and a most delightful ride was made from Nel- son to Knslo. Here the people were nut en niasso to greet the "Press and cheer after cheer went up from the quay as the boat mndo.faEt. ,A procession, headed by. 'Oalbralth ot Ihe Red Deer Advocate, and Gordon of theJ'onoka Herald, and Ihf. brass band which consisted large- ly of drums und bagpipes, led the way to the King; George Hotel. Here a most elaborate menu of some fifteen courses :was: served by the good.ladles of Kaslo'under the direction Of the Kaslo Hoard of On the third page of the menu card was shown a "bunch of while beneath the cut were these words, "Kaslo-where infantile mortality is scarcely known." And judging of the sweet, healthy' faces in the pic: tllro and the children In evidence around the'lown. the brochure was correct. The service was .splendid, and notwithstanding the magnitude of the undertaking, was carried out with wonderful dispatch, and excellency. After a few words'of introduction and welcome from .Ilie president of the Kaslo Board of Trade and the drink- ing of the health of His Majesty the King In all honors, a couple of short addresses wero delivered by Messrs Woods and Jennings ot the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal re- spectively. ..It was. then announced that the afternoon would be spent as follows: Those who wisjied to see for themselves the growing of the fruit might take the wagons and buggies for while those who preferred a dash on the water might avail themselves of the gasoline launches which were in readiness. So there was plenty and variety. Tempting as the lake was for. a.ride In .the launch, the majorily of visitors preferred to see for them- selves the, growing of the excellent fruit that .characterizes this district and therefore betook themselves to the "upper which is somewhat .expansive and extensive and fertile plateau overlooking the lake. It :'is indeed marvellous to find 'out just how much level and oultivatabie land there is along the shores of, the lake Taking a perspective from'.the water one would be inclined to think it.noth tug -but. rolling hills, closer in- spection shows, small fruit farms ga lore and all apparently successfully cultivated. Once the plateau was reached it was'a case Of "help yom- self.'-' imagine if you can a.gang of. hungry- (fruit hungry) press and newspaper, men from the "bald head- ed being turned into a cher- r) apple pear and orchard with no restrictions placed on1 .them bj the. ovvneis and cUdently no phj- bicai restrictions to their capacity.
