Since putting the report ol the recent nominations and elections in
tyoe E. Trimble has handed in his
resignation, and so far no candidate
lias volunteered Ior the position. This
leaves one vacancy on the uldermanic
board. Mr. Trimble was absent from
the cily during the nominations, and
had It ft word for lii'i name not to I e
put forward, but in npitc of this be
was nominated and elected.
Mr Trimble's reason for not standing is that tbe B. C. government, in
whose employ he ib as Superintendent
of Roads and Bridges, ol j cted to Ine
being mixed up in civic politic-*. The
objection was made laBt year, but Mr.
Trimble was far into tbe civic woik
before be was notified of the government's objection, and consequently
did not think it (air to Ihe city to
resign. However thia year he feele
that he cannot accept tbe position,
with the coueequence tbat immediately on his return to the city from Cam-
bourne he handed in bid resignation.

DRESSMAKING ON THE PREMISES
•r    '
For the first time iu its history the
City of Revelstoke this year has elected
its whole municipal slate by acclamation, there being not even a contest
or thc semblance ol a L'ontett lor
either mayor, aldermen or school
trustees. It was anticipated tbat euch
would be the case, there, however,
being some doubt in the mindi ol
ratepayers as to whether the old
council would be returned in toto or
whether there would be changes. As
a matter ol fact there are a couple of
changes in tbe aldermanic personell—
Alderman Bews, chairman of the
finance committee, and Frank McCarty, chairman ol public work"
committee, both ol Ward 2, having
dropped out completely irom tin
municipal arena aud their places
taken by \V. M. Lawrenie, of the
Lawrence Hardware S ore and John
D Sibbald, ol the Reveletuke Get.eral
Agencies.
Tie nominations this year were in
striking contrast Irom thusc ol loimei
years. LaBt year the mayoralty cun
test was marked by cuueideable
rivalry, and things were pretty active
both for the mayoralty and a'der-
manic .-bis. Previous to this rIbo
there were many warm contests, but
tbis year just thc perfunctory business of li mi: tbe nominations ami
declaring thoee nominated elected
was gone through by returning orticer
C. J. Aman, and tbe whole business
waa over. Perhaps a dozen ratepayers,
and eome ol those immediately interested in tbe results, were present when
the nominations closed, at d not the
least interest waa taken in the affair
It waa a cold, dismal, perfunctory,
milk and-water matter ol business—
that wrb all.
The nominations started in shortly
after twelve o'clock with Dr. J. H.
Hamilton puttiug hia papers io for
Mayor. After this the papers slowly
filed in til! the elate was filled in. The
only other changes besides the two
new aldermen, were for school trustees. As a matter of precedent three
school trustees this year dropped out
nolens volens aud their p'aces were
mechanically taken by Robert Square-
briggs, Tboa. W. Bradshaw aud H.
Cunningham Morris, who were nominated for tbe positions vacated.
Tbe new aldermen, Wm. McC.
Lawrence and John I). Sibbald are not
altogether new to municipal work.
Mr. Lawrence, who is away to the
coast at present time ol writing, is
known to have taken a depp interest
in municipal matters as well ae being
for some time president of the Board
of Trade of Kevelstok".
John D. Sibbald's experience, while
not having been with the Cityol
Revelatoke, is none the less valuable,
be having for three years served on
the aldermanic hoard of the city ol
Kegina—a city, by the way, in much
bigger than Revelstoke, and where
many live questions havo been ou the
tapis. Their services this year will no
doubt be of considerable value and
their experience a considerable adili-
tion to that ol those already in power.
Juet what positions they will occupy
ou   the   council   board   nill   not  be
revealed till the committees are struck
at the regular meeting for that purpose.
Revelstoke has bad a partial acclamation belore, some seven or eight
years back, M. F. O'Brien being
elected mayor by acclamation, but
Buch a thing as a total acclamation is
unknown in the City of Revelstoke.
Whether the election ol the members ol the council for 1911 is a matter
for congratulation or commiseration
is a question—the most of the members considering it fur the moBt part a
mutter of commiseration. It ie certain that the council of 11)11 Inve considerable work that, to sav the hast—
is not pleasaut to undertake aud
straighten out, and their attitude in
onDection with the various questions
will be watched with considerable interest.

AN APOLOGY
Owiug to the ab-Bencc of City
power this week the Mail Ht:u-
alii has found it necessary to
revert to the old method of hand
Betting all its type. This has
necessitated to a great extent the
curtailment of news, and until
such a time as the supply of power
is ButHoient for the running ol our
Monoliue type Betting machine
we ask the indulgence ol our
readers.
Local manufacturers, who, like
ourselves, depend upon tho city
for their motive power, will appreciate to tbe full the difficulties
under which wo are working and
the inconveniences to which we
are being put, as we, as well as
tbey, are losing money daily by
tbe discontinuance ol the power
Btipply. ln the meantime we are
saved Irom discontinuing publication altogether by the temporary UBe of a supplementary steam
engine we happen to have on
hynd, and which we are using to
run our preeseB.
STORM IG GRIPS
CITY DF REVELSTOKE
Thermometer Stands at Zero
and Strong Wind Puts Traffic Almost at a Standstill.
With the thermometer hoverinv.;
about zero and a fifty or sixty mile
wind blowing, Revelstoke thiB past
few days has been in tbe grip ol tbe
storm king. Business, except for local
trade, has been practically at a standstill, trallic baa been held up, com
inuuication to outside points has been
but partial, and there has been hit!,
tbat would induce a man Irom wander
ing (rom bis own fireside. To anil
from their stores tbe merchants havi*
tramped laboriously and that is about
as lar alie'd as anyone cared to go.
Ab lar as can be ascertained, tb
storm baa extended as lar east »
Calgary, while aroui.d Field the thei -
mometer etande at thirty below zero
with a fifty mile wind blowing and
men cannot be lorced into commission
to keep the tracks clear ol tho drifting
snow. Everything there iH practically
frozen up and ae a consequence some
littlu traffic tu ibe west has been kept
np only under the most extenuating
circumstances. At Goldon, II. C,
trains have been turned baok owing to
the impossibility ol pulling through
on account ol the elements. Monday
this was practically a trainlees city f
far as westbound trains were con
cerued, but No 2 and No, 90 managed
to pull through lour or five hours
late. Tuesday, No. U(J came through
eight hours late, but nothing came
through   Irom the   east.
Un tbe south line things are in
about as bad a shape as uu the main
line.   A stiow  plough tent  ibeiu on
Tuesday morning got stuck in tbe
drills aud it was found uocisiary to
send a powerful engine down to pull
her out.
Old trainmen say tbat tbie is tbe
worst storm they have experienced in
years, the fierce wiud accelerating the
difficulties ol driving their trains,
while the severe cold bus made it
practically impossible to keep steam
Bullicient tu force their trains through
the gathering enow.
"All wires west of North Bond haye
been out of commissiou eence Monday
morning," said J. L. Smith, htad
operator ol the telegraph i Dice, "and
it has been impossible to g> t messages
through to tbe Coast, but to the east
so lar everything ie clear." This will
no doubt be tbe case until tbe storm
Bubsides as men cannot ami will not
work outside until the weather moderates:
The storm will cost Ihe city a whole
lot ol money,  and  next  year's snow
bill will probably show a big  advanoe
over that of 1910.   Sidewalks  are entirely obliterated,  roads  aie  filled up
and crossroads  are piled   waist   high
witn the drifting eno-v.     L >\ver  town
lias had the storm ulmost co ilinuouely
since   Sunday   night,   but   tbe  main
part of the  city  was  practically  bee
until Monday night.    Then, however,
it waB almost  impossible   to  see   the
length ol a building  aheid  and  citizens had the greatest ditliculty reach
ing their homes in safety. Fortunately
Uevelstoke   usually    expe. fences  btr
one such storm during the season.
LIGHT AND POWER CUT
OFF PAST FEW DAYS
No Certainty as to When Conditions will be Remedied—
Pump out of Commission
When will tho city bave light and
power? That iB the question. For
the paat three days every electric
lamp has been dead, machinery has
been idle, and manufacturers bave
been losing money daily. Little satisfaction can be bad Irom municipal
source-i, for promises of ligh'. tonight
or tomorrow night are like as much
pie crust—made to be broken.
Wbethei lhe municipal authorities
know themselves just when light and
power  are   due,  or whether they are I
wilfully   deceiving    the   public   is  a j
question tint the public would like to
solve.      In the face of   present condi
linns,   and   tbe resultant expectancy
inspired   by   these  promises, it would j
be a relief to   the public to learn definitely and  authoritatively   just when
light and power can be expected, even
il that be several weeks  distant.    IS  t
nobody seems to know   or be   able to
tell.    Ask the city clerk or the mayor ;
and thc   answer   is   "we expect light
tonight."     Perhaps     they    do,   but
night alter night   it   is not forthcoming, and the   publio   are beginning to
lose contideoco in these promises.
Tho position at present is just this.
The gas producer must have water in
order to do its work, virtually lftOO
gallons an hour. Tbe pump, which
it was known lor some time would he
nci'ib'il to supply the water, was
brought in here at tbe recommenda-
tion ol Smith, Kerry and Chace and
fully guatanteed by them as being
capable ol doing the work. When tbe
bulk bead of tbe dam was  blown  outj

and tbe pump put into requisition it
waa found to be practically useless.
The lights naturally died away, tbe
wheels of machinery suddenly stopped
and the city is once more up agaiDBt
it. II Smith, Kerry and Chase guaranteed tbis pump tbe cause ol tbe
present situation is unquestionably
there. In their position ss engineering ad-risers ol the city nothing tbat
could not be guaranteed should bare
licen supplied.
In the meantime tbe mayor has
been looking around fur a pump to
tide over temporarily. Telegraphic
communication with the coast is
practically out off owing to the storm,
and it is next to impossible to get the
machine Irom there. However a pump
owned by Julius Cashato. a rancher io
the nearby vicinity bai been secured,
and as soon as it can be gol   to tbe
plant it is   expected   the   light and
power will be on again.
There Is considerable consolation In
tbe promise of Mayor Hamilton that
Mr. Newman should bave bis contract
completed on or belore February lBtb
and tbat thereafter all the difficulties
will be over and tbe power plant will
be profit producing instead of profit
eating.

For three whole days and three
whole nights consecutively now
the city has been without either
light or power entailing considerable loss to manufacturers and
their workmen. Business men
too have suffered, for in the absence of light and power, scarcely anybody ventured outdoors,
elevators stopped, and business
has been pretty generally demoralized. Although Revelstoke is
not a lai'Ke manufacturing city it
feels the loss immeasurably, perhaps more so on that account
than if she were a large producer
"'. manufactured goods. And
these three wla e days and nights
are nut all. for there has been no
time within the past few years
when ratepayers could feel thai
they were • ast i able certain of
a continuous and efficient light
and power supply. However
during the past three days with
a fierci stoi raging, the city
has been in the throes of dense
darkness, which condition has
had : " redeeming :• ature save

Poultry is not only one ol the fads
of the city,.but many are going into
this profitable line of business for its
commercial possibilities, aud this first
show will evidence to what an extent
tbe fad is taking bold of the city.
The lact that there are already about

many instances, is evidence sufficient
that Revelstolte takes a great interest

number ol fowl tbat are indeed fancy
as well.as very valuable.
Tbe secretary of the society, J. J.

amount of interest that is being taken
in tbis lirst show. Besides local en-
triM many of the prize winners from

Live Hints by Which Revelstoke
Hen Keepers May Profit and
be Happy at all Times.
The most difficult person for the
practical poultry man to get bIohh
wiih is the poultry crank. He might
be perfect1}- sane on all other points
but ou that of poultry—well, they
say lip li is a bug. It will be interesting to the practical ] ou*tryinru
t * 1 an. of the many queer inven-
tons fa ten ted to bring .uy to the
hearts of poultry cranks.
lu the Bcientifio American many ol
these inventions are illustrated. Ore
Jeremiati Cory ol Missouri, us early
as 1870, patented a device which
showed inventive genius Cory was
keeping l'i' - antl poultry—a very
pi Stable c mbination even to dny.
The bee moth, which works only at
night, wrought bavoo with Cory's
bees, so he provided his hives with
sliding doors ui-d connected the dotrt
with each other and then with the
hen roosts by means of a system ol
links and levers. it was all so well
worked out that his henB ucted as
guardians over the hies at nigbt.
The bees retired early. The hens
Soon followed them. When the hens
mounted their roosts the hive doors
were cksed thereby, locking the beeF
in and tbe moths out. In the morning, wheu the henB left their no-lb.
the doors of the hives were automatically opened, leliasing the bee;

work.
But here is an Invention thill is a
real classic. Sanford J. li.,ker, ol
Waterviile, Me. in 1871, inveutul a
device to prevent chickens from
scratchit R up the garden. It consisted of a pit.ee ol spring wire, bent
double wiih a clamp at the bend.
This was secured tu tbe hen's leg.
leaving the two ends o! the wire extending lor some distance backwatil
at il slightly dowuwaid. Not on1)'
would this hinder the (owl (rom scratching, but the spring arms would force
ber forward at eaoh scratch. II the
hen was persistent enough the device
would drive her out of the garden
auU into the next township bed re
night.

Accomplice of Thos. Mitchell
Robertson Completed at

At the preliminary bearing ot John
0. Ki»k, charged with the murder of
Tucker I'each ul Gladys ou the evening ol the late King's luueral, T'boninf
Mitchell Robertson, together with a
large number ol witnessus were ex ini
ined. Col. James Walker, the i Hi i-
iting magistrate, after hearing lh"
evidence was convinced that the body
found was that of Tucker Teach and
that he had been murdered The
only evidence, however, againtt John
C, Fisk, the accused was that of This
Mitchell Robertson, but the Mngis-
Irate considered that ol sufficient ino
mement to commit Fisk fi.r trial ai
the next court held in Calgary which
will he about February  llth next.
At the imiuest on the body found
in the Row river Thomas Mitchell
Robertson had concocted a otory ol

transactions, he said, had b en mud.'
I through tbe same bank. Upon enquiry, however, it had been ascertain
! ed that Ruberlsoi) had bad no dialings
of such a nature with the bank ol
Montreal. When conlronied with these
Iicts Robertson broke down, admitted
that lhe whole story told at the in-
<|iiest was a tissue ol labliuationa and
rt(|nested that he be taken to an ante
room, where it is al'egcd lie made s
confession implicating both hlmseli
ind J, lin C. Fisk.
His story was that   Fisk had   lired
the tirst shot at the die.'ised.and then '
•it the command  of Fisk   ho  himself;
had   lired   another   snot   which  bad
nt. wii the  body  ol   Tucker   Reach
Then together they had  wrapped  tlie j
ody in a bull ilo robe, loaded  it on a
