Herald Readers on Questions

"I took a fide around the city this
afternoon in Mr. McCartcr'B automobile," said Hon. Thomas Taylor,
Minister of Public Works, during his
visit to Revelstoke on Monday, "and
I don't think I know of a city in t^0
Interior that has had such a Bteady
growth as this city has. When I
lived here a few years ago there were
only one or two houses on Sixth
street, nnd now tho street is pretty
well built up with comfortablo
Mr. Taylor whose great Interest in
tbe roads of the province has earned
for him tho cognomen of "Good
Roads Taylor" is making his annual
trip through the province getting in
touch with the spots where good
, roads are most needed and wbcre the
I handsome surplus whieh the govern-
, ment has can best be spent.
I "This matter of making roads
throughout thc Interior is a difficult
one and an expensive one," he said.
"You cannot stake out a road in any
systematic manner or any straight
line, but owing to the physical feature, especially surrounding Revelstoke, you hnve to follow the lines
of least resistance, making tho road
wherever it appears possible. This
usually is along the course of the
streams of the province, but gradually we are getting the Interior opened
up and incidentally creating a good
market for Revelstoko. I believe in
Revelstoke, I believe it is by nature
and by situation intended to be a
big city, and though it may take
years to accomplish this end, I believe it will eventually be one of the
best cities (if not the best already)
in the Interior.
"My government haa faith in Rev-
stoke too, and there is little in reason that my old home city can ask
that will not be granted It. That
Is, of course, as far as my depart -
ment is concerned, and I believe the
other departments are fast learning
that Revelstoke is one of the most
strategic points in the province.
"Let me first call your attention
to the handsome court house you are
this year getting. This is ons of
the pet subjects with which I have
to deal. I am most interested in it
because it is for my home constitu -
ency and plan after plan has been
rejected, until now that a satisfactory set of plans are about completed
1 can assure you that Revelstoke will
have one of the best court houses in
the Interior. It will cost close to
flCO.OCO and will be completed by the
fall of thiB year. The tenders "will
be called for in a few days to be
opened up May 23rd, and as soon after that as it is possible the ten ler
will be awarded. The building will
be both commodious and handsome
architecturally. It will be a two
story structure with full basement,
containing a much larger number of
otlices than the present one. Its exterior will be of brick and marble,
the front entrance lieing decorated
with large marble pillars, which I
consider very handsome. I cannot
in so many words give you an ado -
quatc idea of what tho building will
look like, but I can promise you that
your paper will be the very first ono
in tho province to publish the cut ol
the new building and then you can
judge for yourself what it will be
like. We are building for the future
in this respect, and while just now
the building may Ite considered a
little more commodious than absolutely necessary, still my department
has learned by experience that It il
always well to look to thc future."
"But," enquired tho Mall-Herald,
"you cannot fill nil these offices with
the employees you havo just now, can
"Oh no," replied thc Minister of
Public Works, "but we are continually adding to tbe staff as occasions
demand, nnd occasion demands pretty frequently, and It Is quite probable that we will require a numlier
of new employees by next fall.  "
"Don't you think it would he a
nice Idea to give the old building to
thc city for some purpose," enquired the scribe, "or whnt are you going tO do with it?"
"Yes, that, possibly would lie a
go„d Idea, but then wc never dispose
of buildings lhat way. In all probability it will either lie Bold by private Bale or public auction."
Speaking of the Work of road building throughout this section, Mr.
Taylor could not help but Compliment the excellent work ol Mr. I5d.
Trimble. "I think the work he has
done equal to anything in the province. Thc work In well done In tbe
face ot a. Kreat many difficulties and

alone could enlighten us on. Some
there are possibly who could prove
that the deceased did gamble and did
lose heavily in the game, hut that of
course does not prove conclusively
that this was the direct or indirect
cause of his death.
However, it would be superfluous
for any man tu attempt to prove
that gambling goes on in the city
or that it goes on to a great extent.
Everybody is convinced that it does.
In hotels, in private houses nnd to a
mure or less degree in churches some
form uf gambling Is constantly in
evidence. There is the card table,
there is the slot machine, there is
the pool table, there is the crap

of other forms of gambling and they

on any place to "just leave it alone"
but by all means pick up thc t; pro-

resu'.t has been that nine cases of

The New
People of Revelstoke and district wishing to get in on the ground
floor in Port Mann Townsite may
have all particulars as to the only
piece of land close to the Railway
Wharves not owned by the Railway
Company. The owner of this will
be in Revelstoke next week -after
the 1st. of May- and will be glad to
give information to enquirers addressing him in care of this paper.
The property, of which there
are only 20 lots still unsold, is about
3O0 yards from tne waterfront, and
is side by side with the lots belonging to the railway. The latter will
most likely bring the highest prices
when the Townsite is put on the
market in July or August next.
This is the one and only great
chance to buy inside business property around which lots will be selling at probably $100 to $150 per
foot in a few months. It will take
$350 to $400 cash to handle.
Send your name and address to
care of this paper, and full particulars will be given you.

J. Martin Applies for Permission
to Sell Bottled Liquor
An application has been made to
tbe license commissioners by Jas.
.Martin for a bottle license in the
city, but it is quite probable that
the commissioners will turn the applicant down, as they have done with
many another application licfore this
It is a well known fact tbat the
hotels of the cily have recently assumed control of the Revelstoke Wine
& Spirit Co.'s business and it is
thought this latest application is
prompted by outside dealers who

of their business in the city.

Columbia river, and havo granted a
subsidy of $25,000 for the steamer
route. We nre also prepared to recommend a further subsidy for the
route past Death Rapids to Canoe
river In expectation that the Do -
minion government will do some work
above Death Rapids in order to make
the river navigable.
"Then, too, you must also remember that we have made a considerable grant to your hospital and nlso
a sum of $1111,IMXl to your new school"
Asked if he expected a general election this year, Mr. Taylor expressed
himself us hardly of the opinion that
there would he until after the census

Thomas Taylor holds some strong
opinions. "Tbe entire population of
Uritish Columbia is opposed to it,"
he snid, "on the ground that the
agreement would work out most disastrously to the infant fruit industry
of the province. A reduction on
fruit entering Canada from the United Stales whore the orchards are
well established and fruit can be produced much moro cheaply than in
Western Canada will very seriously
retard the industry in our own province. But apart from this altogether there is no general demand for n
change in the tariff relations of the
two countries. The Dominion is
just now enjoying nn era of except -
lonal prosperity, and there is abso -
lutely no reason why conditions
