Revelstoke Agricultural Society
Lets Busy on Exhibition Work
-Meeting Held Saturday
Hevelstoke Agricultural Society has
decided to hang up 15,000 in prizes
at tlie annual fair this tall. This
is $2,nnn above thc amount that, was
appropriated tor the name purpose
last year, and will tend to create a
greater intercut in the exhibition,
This decision was arrived at at a
meeting of the directors on Saturday
evening whon the lollowing were
present:* President Alex McRae, Secretary ('. M, Field and members T.
Kilpatrick, A. Macdonncl, J. Abrahamson, Vi. M. Lawrence. H. McSor-
ley,  R. Laughton anil W.  Bews.
The secretary's report as read at
thc meeting shows a receipt total for
last year of $3,118.50, which together
with a balance of $198.10 left over
from the previous year made a total
of *$a,31fi.B0 to work on. The expenditure was $3,178.97 leaving a balance
to commeiii-c this year with of

of other societies. This left a balance of $12,600 to be divided among
the smaller fairs. This year he said
the appropriation was $75,000 and
there are no more old debts to pay
ofl. He judged that the grant to
Revelstoke Society this year should
at least lie $500 or $600.
Considerable discussion took place
over the best means to employ to
keep the fair grounds in decent condition. At present a large number
of cattle and horses were pasturing
there and doing much damage to thc
fences and buildings, and the directors thought some action necessary to
prevent this. As a result Mr. Macdonncl and J. Abruhamson were appointed a committee to look into thc
matter and get snmebody tu take
charge of lhc grounds and buildings
on  the   best  possible  arrangements.

Duncan Wilkins Meets His Death
in Cold Waters of Sicamous
Lake-Employed in Shops
While No. 97 passenger train wus
standing on the bridge at SicamoUa
on Saturday preparatory to backing
into the switch to allow No. 2 to
pass, Duncan Wilkins, a litter's helper in the car shops here, stepped
from one of the coaches on to iho
bridge, and it is presumed blinded by
the dazzling light of the coaches and
It was the opinion of Mr. Macdonncl that the fair should bave better
live stock, and he suggested that
men should be sent out to the farming districts to interest farmers and
also that special prizes .should bc
oflered  for special  district exhibits.
Mr. Lawrence suggested that merchants be asked to give special prizes fur special exhibits, also that
wholesalers be canvassed.
Mr. Macdonncl wus appointed a
committee of one to look after the
matter of getting a carload of good
horses for  thc  fair.
' The secretary was instructed to
write the Board of Trade and ask
that body to take up  with thc C.P.
, R. the questions of rates and 'fairs,
and ask the same concessions that granted other fairs.

matter of excessive charges for conveyances    to   and from      the     fair

Sicamous had apparently decided to
tic up there for the night. This he
had done, and while on the station
platform it is presumed that when
No. 97 pulled in he had recognised n
friend on the train, jumped aboard
and rode out lo the bridge where thc
train had backed to give No. 2 n
clearance through.     Hero the      man
' had evidently thought the train was
still in the yards and for some reason decided to gel ofl the train   with
. the above result.
| Passengers on the train immediately missed the man and the matter
was reported to the station at Sicamous.     The night lieing very      dark
and nothing being absolutely certain
ns to whether the man had actually
walked ofl the bridge or had gone in
safety to some other place, no search
was made that night, but no word

Chas. Deutschman says Tourists
are Coming in Bunches
"The Deutschman Caves, which a
f»w years ago were an unknown
yuantity, are becoming an unparalleled attraction to Easterners and
tourists," said Chas. Deutschman,
who Friday returned to the city,
after a trip to New York, Atlantic
City, Chicago and many other big
centres. Mr. Deutschman was away
in the east lor several months visiting with his folks near Chicago und
calling on a large number of tbe
tourists with whom he became acquainted iu the pursuit of his summer's work. The people down east,
Mr. Deutschman declared, have become enamored with the natural beau
ty of these raves and huve signified
their intention of coming back for
exploration purposes. One prominent New York man has already visited the .aves twice and he is coming
back again this summer, while a
great many others have determined
to make this point their annual Bummer outing. About $7,000 will ba
spent around the caves this year,
said Mr. Deutschman, in fixing up
the place. A wagon road will be
built from Glacit*r to the caves and
attempts will be made to open up
new caves that have never yet been
touched. AU the buildings about
the place will be re-painted and
many other improvements made to
add to the attractiveness of the
There are still seven or eight feet
of snow at the caves, but Mr. Deut-
ichman expects this season tbe big-
eest tourist traffic ever experienced.
This year he will have his two sisters with him as they are coming
from  the east to spend  the summer.
This is what the new Provincial Court House, for which tenders have been called, will look like when completed.   The building
will occupy the full block and the grounds will be handsomely laid out on all sides.

In the locui jail with only  live cells
in  it there  were  lodged over Sunday
just   twenty-five   prisoners,        which
means     that     fully  twenty  of  them
either had to sleep on the lloor of the
corridor or  walk   the  Hour  all  night.
The majority of them took the latter
alternative and by    their    persistent
grumbling       and  monotonous  tramp
probably admitted ui not one of tbe
occupants getting    au> tbiug        more

ol  these fellows are  used  to nothing

Hull ol affairs would  be a downright
hardship  and  be  only   productive    of

are  guilty  of  some  oflence  for  which
a  night'i incarceration and a bed on
the  door would  be a just  punishment

them had not yet had a trial,      and

The common housefly is frequently
referred to in tho newspapers as the
typhoid Ily, because he is recognized
by thc medical profession as one of
the most effective agencies known ior
the spread of typhoid fever. That is
not the only disease for which he
serves as a distributing medium. He
can carry tuberculosis germs nnd
dozens ot other germs on his feet,
and he plays no favorites while encaged in thc business of promoting
disease. Like that, "impartial fate"

possible method of discouraging the
fly's visits. He is a "muckraker"

fewer muck heaps the fewer flies.
Kveryone should recognize the importance of combating tlie Hy. The
light against him should be aggros -

campaign is an anti-disease campaign
a movement to make the country
healthier, and consequently happier,
and more prosperous. Surely that
is an end to he desired, and the extermination of the fly would go a
long  way  toward achieving  it.

fBiHoys Character Actor Will Be C. P. R. Official Photographer
Here June 12th
Albert Chevalier, the greatest Knglish character actor in the world will
lie in Revelstoke at thc opera houec
on Monday night, June 12th. Mr.
Chevalier is under the direction uf
Frederic Sblpman whieh fact alone is
sullleieut guurautec of the quality of
the entcrtuiumout that will be presented.
The Chicugo American says of this
famous actor:—The moment eternalised, the human lifted out of mortality
immortalises; this is the painter's
art,     And this is Chevalier's    art.
This is Chevalier's art most truly
seen in "The Workhouse Man." Like
the painter'-, Chevalier's art is impersonal. There is no direct appeal;
the canvas is linished und hung upou
tho walls for connoisseurs and fools
alike to gaze upon, hut the painter is
nowhere In sight. There is no one
to crave your emotional appreciation
the picture, serene in beauty und
truth, docs not ask your tears.
If your sympathies are quick aud
poignant u tear may lleck your eye -
lashes, but it will dry there without
fulling. Vie weep passionately over
the passing, over that which goes
for ever, over the wounds that will
heal; but the moment uf pain lifted
Into hope, the human lifted out of
Time's mortality into eternity—this
stirs the soul but forbids tears.
Mr. Chevalier will be assisted by
Edna Blanche Showalter, prima donna soprano and Myron W. Whitney,
American basso.

Spokane. Wash., Muy 19.—"Residents of British Columbia have Abandoned the idea of a peaceful annexation of Alaska," said A. B. Mac- of Rossland, secretary of the
Associated Board uf Trades of eastern British Columbia, in an interview
here today, adding:
"The   reason   for giving   up the
plan is thut the American people do
not seem to uppreeiate that all we
had in view was the development of
that country on a scale commensurate with tho natural resources, sim
ilar to that ol our own.
"V,e have felt for a long time that
under the auspices of our provinoe or
of the Dominion government, Alaska
could have a more rapid and economical development of its natural resources, particularly in the shape of
coal and gold mines, than It las
bad to date. If the American people do not see it that way, it is no
fault of ours.
"There is a large amount of British and Canadian capital ready to
invest in Alaska when its natural resources are thrown open to individual enterprises.
"From all that I bave heard Alaska is not prospering aa it should.
The people who have given their time
and money to the development of
that country are receiving no recognition at the bands ol the United
States government. This has caused
the present depression in every line
ol business in Alaska."

Vancouver, B. C, Muy 17.— The
Methodist conference today passsd a
strong rcsolutiun protesting against
the Ne Temere decree of the Roman
Catholic church and urging that the
government demand that the validity of all marriages authorized by
civil law be accepted. Thc conference will appoint a delegate to act
with other conferences and denominations in presenting similar protests
to thc Uttawa authorities. In discus
sing the question Rev. B. 11. Balder-
ton deplored thc careless manner in
which many Protestant clergymen
viewed marriage ceremonies as evidenced by the solemnization ot such
rites in theatres or under sensational
On the question of church union the
conference passed a resolution after
considerable discussion expressing
gratification at the report ol the
committee stating that organic un -
Ion of the churches entering into negotiations was practicable and recommending the approval uf ttie
proposed basis of union.
The report on social and moral reform praised thc provincial authorities for their general attitude on thc
question. The demund for total
prohibition of tbe liquor traffic was
reaffirmed and it was stated that thc
church looked to the provincial government for legislation which would
give cities and municipalities the
right to vote on the question of the

Suppose instead of putting this money into

have it paid for, erect a home for yourself and
pay regular instalments instead of rent until you
have that paid for. Wouldn't that be better than
putting your money where it will pay three per

Perin, of Boston, related the history
ot Franklin Square house in that city
of  which he was the founder.
Thc chiet argument put forth by
Dr. Perin in favor of his scheme was
that young women and young men
are social beings, and will arrange to
see each other, and that it is better
thai this should happen under the
proper conditions.
"There ought to be opportunity in
every great city," be said, "tor
young women who are forced to work
und study to meet young men on
fair and safe conditions. Every well
organized society should try to prevent tbe tragedy which comes only
too often, not liecatise the girl is bad
but because ot the conditions of Idling."
Dr. Perin concluded his address by
an earnest appeal to those interested
in the scheme to put it through
while  interest  was  aroused.
