W. M. Brown, an Old Timer,
Tells of $3,000,000 Being
Taken from Mines There
"I have by no means lost faith
in thc Big Bend," was the statement
of Mr. Wm. Brown, who is visiting
here when asked by the Mail-Herald
to recite some his *eminiscences of
the old town in thc old days. "There
are eighteen mineral claims up there
lying idle and some day when suftici -
ent capital is interested thc immense
capabilities ol that section will bc an
eye opener to the world. When a
railway is built up there these claims
will all be opened up, and wealth untold will be extracted from these
what are now* barren wastes, and
until that railroad is built there will
be little doing."
Mr. Brown, who first Came to Revelstoke in 1885, is possessed of g remarkable memory for names, dates,
and incidents. His interest in the
old town, which has now grown to
city proportions, is unflagging.
"This is my home," he asserts, "de'
spite th3 fact that I am now living
down in Oregon and in Uncle Sam's
domain, and my memory often reverts to the old town and the old
times despite the advantages of
weather and circumstances where I
am now living, and when I set foot
on the train down there for British
Columbia I feel always that I am
coming home again."
The old times in Revelstoke were
lively ones and have impressed themselves Indelibly on the mind of this
old timer and he loves to sit down
and talk about them to any inter -
csted listener. "I can remember
when I was proprietor of the old Columbia hotel, that we had a veritable concert every night ln the hotel
•Seventy or eighty laborers would
gather around the bar and in the
corridors of the hotel, and with
mouth organs, violins and concertina
they would turn the night into day,
and make merry all the night long.
"The town then was not by any
means a lawless one as I believe it
had been in former days before I
arrived on the scene, but all the
Bamc things were lively and went
with „, snap and vim that is not in
evidence now. Be/ore me Revelstoke
j had the name of being a very lawless
I town, but I had always found it very
peaceable for a new and inland town.
Shooting up lamps, bottles and glas-
(•es in the hotels had licen frequent,
and these caprices of pioneers had
left their indelible traces on hotel
property here, but I had seen nonj
of the actual damage done.
"In 1S'S5,  when I  first arrived here
from Clinton, the old town just came
to the foot of the hill opposite Central schoolf     Its first settler      had
his shack     on the bank of thc river
opposite the school, but that      portion of thc land is all washed away
now and no evidence is left   of   this
lonesome   pioneers existence.       Railway construction work wbb on     the
hum thm, the main line not     being
connected up until the year after   I
arrived here.     Thc Big Bend was in
its palmy days and minerals to   tho
value of $3,000,000  were taken  from
its mines.     Hundreds of men     were
engaged     up     there and the French
Creek and  McCullough Creek    camps
were     veritable     hives of industry.
Blasting was in full swing and accidents were many, and often thc noise
, and   merriment of   the hotel     gave
j way to scenes of commisseration. At
| times    instead of the nightly concert
| hall the place more closely resembled
I an hospital.     But even this did not
i deter the merry making of the town
in general for almost    svery     house
| was an illicit liquor shop.
"Wiih thc coming of thc railroad,
thc mounted police followed in its
wake, and great rivalry existed among thc local police, the Provincial
government guardians of the law,
and the mounted police representing
the Dominion government. The local
and Provincial authorities harbored
the notion that the mounted police
were encroaching on their territory,

ing this view of the mutter the association decided last night at a
meeting that if any twelve members
of the club wished to go and try con
elusions with Golden they could Cdo
so without incurring any expense to
thc club. ln other words each
must pay his own expenses. Should
the Uolden boys come through with
sufficient of the expenses to warraiit
the team going of course the boys
will go and the game will be on.
It was the concensus of opinion of
the meeting last night that practice
should be had just as soon as possible, and for that purpose the boys
will meet at the Y.M.C.A. athletic
grounds on Thursday night of this
week at 0 o'clock and do a little
kicking, the Y.M.C.A, having very
kindly allowed them the use of the
grounds until the Kevel.-toke Athletic
grounds are in condition.
Thc colors of the club will bc black
and white and a motion was passed
to that effect. A committee consisting of the secretary and Joe
MeKinnon, was appointed to see
what the suits ordered last year
could be secured for, they having
power to purchase the same after
consulting with the club,
Organizers for a city and a C. P.

to attend the meeting of the Y.M.C.

MeKinnon & Sutherlands and
Bingham's Music Store Are
Visited—Suspects Arrested
Ten dollars and a half in cash and
a set of piano tuning tools worth
540' were taken from the Revelstoke
General Agencies Music Btore last
night by burglars who ellccted au
entrance through thc back way.
While from the store of MeKinnon &
Sutherland a Pair of boots worth $li
was stolen and a boi of hats was
laid out in thn back lano ready to
bc packed away when the burglars
were frightened away by Mr. MeKinnon arriving on the scene.
The burglary ol the music store
must have occurred some time before 9:30 o'clock in the evening, as
it was then that Mr. Uingham, proprietor of the store, lirst missed thc
money. The burglary, however, was
not suspected till this morning when
Mr. Bingham open the store and
found the t0ols taken from a satchel
which had been ripped open with a
knife. The back do0r of the store
bad been pried on its hinges, and the
locks of thc inner doors forced.
Entrance was made to the MeKinnon & Sutherland store through
the back window which was complete
ly broken out.
"It was about 11:30'," Mr. MeKinnon said, "when I first heard the
noises down stairs and when I reached the store I heard two men conversing in a little room io thc back.
When I asked them who they were
they immediately jumped through the
window again and were gone.
"I immediately notiiied the police,
and shortly after this Constable Terry brought a man from the station
with a Pair of boots "which looked
exactly like the ones stolen from
the store."
Thc police have a couple of sus.
pects in custody.

The work of the team was wonderful, But  i ne  man.  Tyser,  gathered
board to carry thc rowlocks,  and in   less  than  56*7
1830 the idea was improved upon by
Frank Emmci, who fitted the Eagle
with outriggers of iron. The great
improver, however, of the racing
boat, was Henry Clasper, of Newcastle, who reduced her hulk step by
step until he irave her nearly all tbe
Hglitn?ss she now possesses.
There are few sporting events iu
the world which attract so much attention universally, and there is certainly no event which druws such
crowds ns the annual boat race.
What a spectacle it is to see the
hundreds of thousands of men, women and children packed aloni; the
bank of the Thames, from Putney to
Mortlake. They have come for miles
to witness the great event aud one

which  they cheer on  to  victory
immediately the race is over, there
is the most intense joy or disappoint
ment,  triumph and exultation.
Only those who have had the good
fortune to witness tbe race know
what a day it is in England, Look
at the immense crowds along th*'
banks. They have come from the
north and from ihe south and ' om
the cast and fryin the west. Vi hat
brings th"tn there' There is uotli -
ine to be gained by wiuning the event; and iherein lies the answer. It
is because the crews are rowing for
the sport connected with the great
race. Ii is because there is n.jth.ng
to win, and that is why the thousands and thousands are tbere. uth-
ered on tbe banks, everyone a t ue
Britisher to the heart.
When in 19u6 Surrey played Yorkshire at the Oval, for Lee's benetit,
the three days' play was witnc *sed
by spectators who in the agvi-gate
numbered 80,000; when in 1901, Tot-

Taking advantage of a superb orchestra consisting of harp and violin
which chanced to be in the city, the
Itevelstoke Snowshoe Club hurriedly issued verbal invitations to its
various members for a dance to take
place last night in Selkirk hall,
and the affair proved to be one of
the. most delightful in the history of
the club.
Between thirty and forty of thc
members of the club, who are also
devotees of tlie torplschoroan nrt,
assembled, to while nway several ■delightful hours which were punctuated

On Monday evening a meeting was
held In the City Hall ol those iater-

the close of the meeting every ona
present expressed satisfaction with
the able manner in which Mr. Terry
handled his subject. After throwing
a number of pictures on the screen,
showing the different classes of
bouses in use and the kind of runs,
lie gave some practical demonstrations uf killing and plucking fowls
nfter which some diseased animals
were killed and cut open to illustrate
the ollects of the diseases from which
they  were suffering.

Worlds' Work Quotes Some Interesting figures
The following article from World's
Work, a leading American magazine,
may be of considerable intcres! to
those who favor reciprocity with the
United States. The article appears
under the caption ol "Some Figures
About Reciprocity" and may be an
eye opener to those who hold the opinion tbat American manufacturers
are not looking to thc monopoly of
our markets:
"In the little town of Wellnnd,
Ontario, are 2l> manufacturing plants
which have gone from the United
States in the last ten years. These
include branches of the Plymouth
Cordage Company, of Deere & Company, plow-makccs from Iowa, ol
ibe Pittsburgh Tube Company, of
the United Motors from Detroit, nn.l
sixteen others. The town has, in
fait, been made by Americnn munu -
lecturing plants. Hamilton, Ont.,
too, boasts of 36 American industries
including branches of the American
Can Company, the Intel national Harvester Company, the Oliver Chilled
Plow Works, and the like. And there
are other Canadian towns that boast
of a similar transplanting of American factories, for 755 companies from
tbe United States have built factories in Canada since 1900. Many of
these are larger than thc original
plants in the United States.
"The tariff against    Canada—which
was necessarily met by a     Canadian
tarifl ai;ain-t us—was, of course,  designed to  protect our manufacturers;
but  tbe  result     has     been  to  drive
"."•1  estnblishnunis  out of    tha

were built  1 n the other -ide of    the

"Lonesome Town," ns delightful a
musical comedy as is on the boards
today, will bc the attraction lhat
Max Dill, the famous German comedian, late of Kolb and Dill, is to offer at the Opera House 'for the two
nights, April 10* and 11.
It was in "Lonesome Town" that
Dil'l scored his greatest success. In
the piece he impersonates Bakcrsvi.le
BUI, a tramp of Teutonic perstiasioo,
who is desirous of acquiring wealth
without the formality of working for,
it. An opportunity in this direction,
is disclosed in the town ol Watts, a
boom community of Southern C'uli-
Isaac Watts, the founder of the
town, having died without apparently lonving a will, is suddenly discovered to have left many claimants
for his properties. Watts, it scorns,
disappeared before Imb death, and a
designing San Francisco widow, Mrs.
A. Marvelous Wonder, is one of tbe
many who appear on the -oCciie seeking a slice of the estate, claiming
that she is the deceased Watta' willow. BakersviUc Bill, with iwo other knights of the rond, ,s another
claimant; and other applicants for
tho wealth are disclosed in two hhar-
The endeavors of all the9e -schemers
to outwit one another mnae for the
action of the piece, nnd It ran be
readily seen that all sorts of humorous complications come ol this, ln
th? end tbe will is discovered and
the rightful heir gets the estate.
Thc comedy throughout is highly
diverting, and tho musical numbers
thnt besprinkle the action are bright
and whistcablc. The chorus is a
great feature o'f the show. There
aro numerous costume changes, and'*
a military march by thirty pretty
girls is unite as beautiful a spectacle
as the modern musical comedy stage
Dill's company embraces fifty people, with the same all-star cast as
he had during his recent notable San
