Iiy local Capital
Should the tost work whicli Mr. B,
A. Bradley Intends doing in the vary
iiiMi' future mi the Pioneer Placer
niiiiMs up the Big Band, produce anyways near the results that aro confidently expected, this city will once
again put on tbe old-time appearance
of tho early days whin money flowed
like water and every man's pocket
bulged mit with big yellow iui.- .1
In .lays gone by the Big Bend wns
the Mecca of tbe mining man; he
flocked in there by the thousand;
"picked" away for a few mouths,
and came out rough and uncouth but
with enough of the yellow stutl to
make old Picrpont Morgan green with
envy. There is not, even now, a
mrtiing man who has had experience
up the Big Bend who does not believe in its possibilities; be knows
as if by intuition that the place is
literally glistening with thc precious
metal, and he knows that all that is
necessary to coin wealth untold is
the expenditure of a little capital
and tlie trick is done.
Old French Creek teems with gold,
and that is where these placer mines
uie. Prospectors have touched the
edge of it and taken out millions of
dollars, but there' are still mill iuu s
awaiting the magic touch of capital,
and the sweat of the laborer's pick.
For years, owing to the natural difficulties that huve to be overcome,
this country lias been practically
abandoned by capital, but intermit*
etitly the work has been going on thut
Will pave thc way for future pros
pectors. Mr. llradiey and associates
have expended upwards ol $ir>u,0iiti In
exploring and developing the lower
t'ii.1 of the 1'reek. His confidence iu
the possibilities of the Big Bend is
shared by dozen.- of local people to
such an extent that in the very near
future Mr. Bradley with whom is
identified much local capital, will
bring ni ..ii;- of those lug Keystone
drills for the purpose of testing tbe
gravel In order to convince skeptical
capital that here is a good thing. All
deep work so far has proven values
of tit) cents to the cubic yar.1 to exist
iiimI  it is found  that  there still exists
in     Preach   Creek between 50, ,000
and   75, ,000  yards  of  gravel       un
exploited. This the Keystone drill
will test, and if, as confidently expected, the same high values obtain,
the Pioneer placer mines arc prac
tically sold out at a figure which will
mean the expenditure of between a
half and three-quarters of a million
dollars in the coming season.
Mr. Bradley lias been drifting in
the vicinity t"i a number ol years.
an I the mines are now ready for the
woik of the Keystone drill. 11 the
' results nl this drill warrant the procedure the company with whom negotiations are lieing made will install s big hydraulic plant [or tbe
working of the holdingB.
ORUISINQ THF. HU! BBND.
I That tbe Big Bend is rich w,th
possibilities, Ib the opinion of Thos
ftieden I'ummins, an engineer ior the
New York firm ol Murwirk, Mitchell
\- l'o., who has been up in that coiin-
said Mr. Cummins, "as gold can be
picked up almost any place in the
beds of streams in appreciable quantities, while other minerals abound."
Mr. Cummins is an engineer of considerable experience, having 'had
charge of cruising pangs which worked over 860,0(10 acres in Texas this
spring, and later cruising a large area in Florida. The lirm for which he
is working has splendid connections
in tbe Old Country and has oltices in
all the large cities ln Oanada. Mr.
Cummins is now in the city re-provisioning his crew and will leave for
the north again about the 4th ol
next   month.

Parents of Children who Wantonly Destroy them will be
Held Responsible
Several cases of wanton destruction
ol shude tree-, on the streets by children having come to the notice of
the city council it wns tho opinion of
the members lust night, at their regular meeting that something should he
done, nnd lhal somebody should be
held responsible lor the acl ions of
these children of tender age. Mayor
Hamilton thought It n shame that
niter spending u considerable amount
of money in beautifying the streets
and 111 view of the [act that eit wns
generally nre commencing to take a
pride in the appearance of the city,
that such things should go unpunished. Ily all means the council thought
thn parents should be held responsible for the actions of their children
aud accordingly a motion was passed that in future when trees are torn
up by their roots or broken off or
otherwise injured that the parents
of the miscreant children be held responsible. This action on the part of
the council will permit thc law to
take its course.
A precedent having been set by the
council   of  re-purchasing  its   own  debentures other  financial corporations
are loll,,wing  the lead of offering the
city a chance to gel* hack some of Its
outstanding debentures. *J!l,(HM) worth
having been purchased at last council
meeting along  came another  offer of
$12,(imi from tbe Canadian Debenture
Corporation.   The  council      generally
thought  that  the city bad  gone  just
is far as they  cared  to go in  this respect,  but  Alderman Sibbald  was cer
lain  that it would   he a money saver
lur the city  10 dig right In and buy
back all they could get.   Accordingly
lie submitted a  lengthy  motion  s t
ting forth the  big saving that would
accrue to the city by such action an.l
advising  the acceptance of  the offer,
hut   tiie      motion  found   no  seconder.
Another tn.ition  followed, fathered by
Uderman MoKlnnon and seconded by
Alderman Abrahamson, that the clerk
notify   bbfl       Debenture    Corporation
that the city was not in the lield for
bhe purchase of any more debentures
it the   present   time.      This  was    the
occasion of a vote being taken which
resulted as follows:
Por   MeKinnon  and  Abrahamson.
Against—Sibbald  and  Harhcr.
This  put  it  up  to  the  mayor,    and
lie explained that while he bad favor-
il the purchase of the $9,U00, he must
vote  for ih*.' motion.      He  would like
to he a little surer of his ground before be went, any further intbe matter
He would vote for the motion.
Alderman Oowan waa not present,
and there being a number of things
uu hand requiring Ins attention, the
mayor took the occasion to complain
of his nonattendanc?. This is the
third or fourth meeting at which Aid.
1'owan has failed to put in an appearance.
A communication from Supt. Duck
asking Ior certain repairs to the power plant was referred to the Fire,
Water & bight committee.
Chas. North applied for a raise in
wages for Arthur Uennett, an employee "i In- department, and $111
a month was added to his salary on
motion nl Aldermen .MeKinnon and
Sibbald.
.Mrs. Staecy complained of sewage
matter being dumped on her (aim,
bul  the council took uo action ,,11 the
matter,
in a communication the city clerk
advised tl nneii to allow a  liberal
discount  im   the prompt payment  "f
lazes, and  011  motion a discount    ol
Jll  per cent,  will  Is1 given on all  gen
trai       fund     taxes   I'M id   un   in    belore
September   '.tf...
What    In   do    Willi   the   eity    cement
mixer was another terlout question
with the council. The mayor explained timi he thought it a grave    mis
take lo purchase m In the prut place,
as it wa- of no iiko to the eity any
way and wns a losing proposition,
■•IiiIm tlie city clerk advlsod 1h>* OOUn-
eil that It had never lie 'li used bit
the purpose for which il had been
purchased,    Tbt   matter   was   referred
io tiie i'ublic Works committee to .lis
pose of if possible.
The clerk was Instructed to write
Mr. Ilaliiiur notifying him that the
i'loviueiai Inspector of EBIootrioal On-
ergv had condemned then use if thc
power plant without a governor and
to  advise   hint that  it   is   up   to   him
to make thc  governor good.
Chan.  North     applied for   the  potll
timi of General  Superintendent      of
tae whole electrical system of the
city. Mayor Hamilton favored the
appointment and the matter wns referred t" the Hire, Water &. Light
committee.

The meeting showed an unusual enthusiasm and a keen desire to make

small fortune.
The election  of officers resulted    us

ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE
AND FIRST AID CORPS
Sixteen Men Already Enrolled as
Result ot Visit ot Official
Instructor
By the visit nf P. B, Ashbridpe, an
ollicial travelling instructor of the
Si. John's Ambulance Association ol
the O.P.R. to the city on Thursday,
ot this week, a class was organized
among the employees of the   railway

rtturter. Mr. W. North was appointed
Becretary, *m><l Instructions will be
given from II a.m. to 12 noon each
Saturday. Dr, Sutherland will In
struct tbe elasses and all employees
wishing  in join ace requested to hand
their names in t" the secretary.
The organlvtation, which is a direct
branch ol the St. John's Ambulance
Association, of Knglnml, aud which is
tuiiler lb,* supervision "I il, draws no
distinctions with regard t" the rluss
or the employment of its members;
all iu „ position to do so are urged
to join, Chough it is believed lhal the
corps will be made up essentially of
railroad men.
The object ol lhe ambulance corps
in Hevelstoke, as in other cities
throughout Oanada, will be to train
men, by a course of comprehensive
lectures ..ii ihe principles of Bret-aid
;n Bticb a manner that they will be
capable Intelligently to administer as
sistitnee in emergency accident cnsi-s
when, as is very often tlle case, a
doctor is not on the scene. These
lectures will be given here once a
week, and will be under the direction of IU'. Sutherland. After
an adequate number of tulks on the
ambulance Work bus heen given eaeh
class, the in.'tubers will lm subjected
lo jm examination, und those making
the required grade will be granted
a certilicate.
This particular organization us well
as its branches, it is claimed, is the
result of much time, money and
strenuous effort expended by tbi' t'.
I'.R. All of the classes aee financed
and maintained by the company,
wliicb some live years ago got in
touch with the old country association anil made arrangements to pattern its methods of organisation after those of the larger ■institution,
anil to havo competent instructors
sent over here. Since that time
branches have been established at
very nearly every important railroad
point in Canada.
All equipment, such as bandages,
splints, stretoherg, etc., are kept in
tin' shops ami freight gheds, Bo that
in ease of all accident in the yards
at tbis point it would be readily nv-
nliible.
Any who wish fo become members
,,f tins newly-formed ambulance corps
in* requested to communicate with
the  local   -erpetary.

London, Eng., duly 27.—The Blrm
Ingham Daily Post today announced
that there is a possibility of King
(Ieorge visiting Oanada during the
regime of lhe Duke of Connaught as

Press was authorized to deny rumors
nf a visit oi tlie king to Canada after the Durbar ceremonies iu India.
It is certain, however, that the
Prince of Wales and Prince Albert,
the second son, will come to Canada
and will probably make it tlle lirst

NEW FREIGHT FATES
1). S. Interstate Commerce Con:
mission Order Reductions
Washington, duly 24*.—Io what is
known as lh.* Spokanc-Kcit" I'ucillc
'nasi cases, th,* Interstate Commerce
Commission today ordered material
reductions in freight roles (rom the
Easl i" points between Denver and
iln, Western terminals of ihe trans
continental railroads. For many
years       the     railroads     have   exacted
from shippers io intermediate points
such     as Spokane and  Reno   higher
rales  on   Kasleni   freights than    were
charged for ihe much longer hauls
to Beattie, San Francisco and otner
Pacific Coast points. The theory has
been thai the railroads must meet
water competition to llii' I'acilic
coast. The higher rates to Intermediate points, arbitrary fixed, have been
defended by a comparison with the
coast, rates, plus a theoretical backhaul from the const to the inland
tatlons along the line. The committee recoirnizes the right of a railroad
io meet competition to Pacific coast
points, but practically wipes out tbe
backhaul rate to inter-Rocky Moun -
lain territory. It lays down what it
considers would be fair nnd just rates
in various freight zones in the West
ind gives tlie railroads until Oct. 1*5
in adjust their tariffs ijccordlngly.
The commission also lays -down tbe
important principal that hereafter
railways will not. be permitted to fix
it hit rm y market limits. and that
hereafter commercial conditions rath
i than the Will of railway traffic
managers shall control rates on
transcontinental transportation. Tbe
lecisions are of far reach n.: import-
nice. They affect directly all freight
.-lies betwees the Atlantic Ocean nnd
in' Pacific reset.

No. 1930
Contagious Disease (Animal) Act
Grade  B. Certificate
This is to certify that I
have inspected the premises
and herd of T. Lewis, of
Revelstoke. The premises
do not strictly conform to the
condition set forth in the
' standard,' and the herd has
been tested for tuberculosis
once a year and has been
found free from that disease.
Remarks :   Cows   are   in
good shape and milk handletl
in a sanitary manner.
(Signed)      Dr. B. R. ILSLEY,
July 3rd, 1911.        Inspector.
Note :—The only fault with
the premises is that while
the "standard" calls for
800 cubic feet of space for
each animal, whereas our
stable only contains a little
over 700 cubic feet for
each animal.

NEWMAN IS SATISFIED
Cuts His Account in Two and
Council Pays Up
Following n very heated discussion
of tiie matter of making a settlement
with Wm. Newman & Co., which was
had at the eity council last night the
contractor this morning met the
council at a special meeting, and a
settlement was arrived at for the
sum oi |8,00O. This disposes irf the
possibility  of a   lawsuit.
As  will  he remembered  Mr.       New
man    claimed    that  there was some
(17,0110 coming  t*. him,  hut  the city
put in a countei claim which considerably cut  into  tins claim  of       Newman's.   This Mr.  Newman would  not
admit   nor   would   the  council       cum*
promise one iota,     consequently      a
.**,, 1  ,.*k existe.l and a -uit vvas threatened  which  under the most   favor
