IN ELECTRICAL CITV
Unlimited Power for Manufacturing and Industrial Purposes
The city council are Inviting thc
Revelstoke public to attend a tormal
opening ot the new hydro-electric unit at the power house on Saturday
afternoon. The ceremony will be as
public as possible and it is the coun
oil's intention to interest the citizens
in the work and make the event one
to be remembered in thc history o!
the city. Many addressee will be
delivered nn.l the Mayoress will
start thc new machinery point;. This
will mean much to Revelstoke's in-
ilustrinl future, and with almost unlimited power to sell, there should
be every inducement for manufacturers and industries of all kinds to
bc established here. Revelstoke is
an electrical city, and In view of the
event on Saturday as thc opening of
tbo new plant, it is hoped that thc
people will attend at the power
house en masse.
A special train will leave the depot on Saturday at 2 p.m., for Cowan Siding (the power house) which
will convey passengers to nnd from
the work and a large attendance is
anticipated.
The Suave Politicians
The following are two Questions
asked of Lloyd George during the
British elections:
'If the Liberals are returned when
do they intend to introduce a Hom;
Rule bill?"
The chancellor replied: "I hope wc
will introduce it at the     first   avail-
le moment. We have no intention
of shirking Home Rule. It is absolutely essential for the etliciency to
Ireland, Wales wants self government. England wants self government. We are treading on each
others' toes in parliament and not
doing any work because the imperial
parliament looks after matters which
are beneath thc attention of many a
county council. That is very bad
business. After disposing of the
veto of the Lords the first thing will
be to reconstruct our present imiier-
ial machinery in such a way as to
-tree the Commons (rom trivial local
and provincial details which can bc
attended to so much better in the
districts concerned. This will leave
parliament untaxed for the purpose
of attending to the immense imperial questions that are awaiting consideration."
"But may there not he persecution
of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in Ireland'.'"
Mr. Lloyd George answered: "There
is not the slighest danger in these
days of religious persecutions. The
1'lstermen persecuted the Roman
Catholics in thc past nn.l the Ulster
men are now afraid remembering their
record, that there may bc vindictive
measures on thc part of the Roman
Catholics. Those were the dark days
of the pasi. Then, is not the faintest
doubt in the mind of anyone who
knows Ireland and knows the Roman
Catholics that they intend to conduct the government of thc country
In the interests of thc nation as a
whole and not in the interests of any
section."
its kind which has occurred in v.est-
ernCannda since the lust slmi'ar occurrence in this district anjitt two
years ago.
At 9 o'clock SacJ.'dftj night the
last of the forty-rive bodies had been
recovered from the p."*.. T o ileni
include thirtyfive aantiHm fui ten
members of - rescue party frcn Hos
mer and Frank win wei.t* 1'ito thc.
mine at. 5 o'clock in the morning and
were entomijd.
All the missing now hafl ha'in ai-
counted for. it is thii^a that several injured men will die. Hundreds
of men arrived here today from ad
joining camps in the Crow's Ixtt
district to assist in rescue work.
The rescue party entered the in no
and worked with unceasing energy
when a cave-in occurred winch nn
prisoned the entire party. of these
two were specially trained rescuers
nnd were equipped with the provincial government's apparatus, including oxygen helmets.
The members of thc rescue party
later were released but many are in
a precarious condition.
The bodies arc being piled up in
the wash-house as rapidly as they are
taken from the mine. Particularly In
the case of foreigners identification
is difficult. In some cases the
bodies are badly mutilated, the head
being crushed and the features unrecognizable.
The work of rescue is proceeding
methodically and the mine was devoid of the harrowing scenes usual
in such cases, the wives and children
of the entombed miners having been
kept from the scene.

Keep Vour Dollars at tan
If you spend a dollar in your o«*n
town, part of it, assuming that you j
are engaged in business, finds a path
bnck to your individual coffers. If
you send n dollar to other sections,
nil of it is apt to staythcre. You
have depleted to that extent your
community's working capital.
A stream of money flows daily
from British Columbia into the Unit
.1 States. This, of course, has a
weakening effect upon local finance
and commeece. Tbe outgo means
less capital here for business.
Each of us whose fortunes depend
upon those of British Columbia,
owes it to himself to exert an influence toward keeping more of this
money where it will stimulate our
own industries. If you are making
a purchase an.l there is little choc
between the goods or articles, let
your decision be in favor of the pro-
duet which is adding to the home
wealth, rather than to that of manufacturers at a distance. Von ma;
regard as unimportant your own in-
tiuence in  this matter of buying, f A-
ng that you are only an individual
among many thousands,  but you can
ielp.     There arc great,     maniifactur-
ng possibilities in British Columbia
and development means, of course,
bigger and richer cities, more opportunities and more money for all who
are industrious. Keep this in mind.
Lend whnt aid you can to the pro
gross of your own community.—Opportunities.
N.W.M.P. Chase Ducks Desperadoes Ten Days
Calgary, Alta., Dec. 13.—After having remained In hiding since the hold
up of the O.P.R. train at Ducks, B.
O, and the subseriuent murder of Constable ike Decker at Ashcroft, when
he attempted to arrest two of their
number, the Haney gang of desperadoes have again been sighted, and
are now being pursued by mounted
police.
Although the polico gave tho desperadoes ten days' chas* lasting from
November 10 to 20 deuiils are just
leaking out, The men were seen
near Lundbreok, well mounted and
armed and Inspector Belcher of lyncher Creek, together with Constables
Lee O'Conncll, Morehead and Irwin,
were sent out alter them. Thc chase
that followed, with tho desperadoes
always a day and a half ahead of the
police fill they lost them in the
Gaena Hills district, wus a hard one
Several times thc police narrowly es
called when the ice on thc rivers
broke beneath their horses' weight,
and at the end of the chase, two of
the horses had to be lelt at farm
houses as they were exhausted.
It is believed that the men have
accomplices in mining camps as they
got wind of lhe police coming utter
them and made a clean gct-a-way in
to B. C. Mounted police nnd detectives are now working on the case
and it is believed by them thnt the
gang were contemplating another
holdup when the police frustrated
their plans.
Local Poultry Specialty
The Revelstoke Meat Market is
'"isplaying in the store window, two
of the largest "spring chickens" ever
sho-vn similarly in Revelstoke. The
birds are just seven months old and
show whal can be done by intelligent mating of stock and careful attention to feeding an.i housing. The
variety har /t <.l i'cured a place
on the American Poultry Stanuard,
but It is known locally as "Foote's
Bpeclals." The originator of the
varier, is Mr. W. A. Foote, of the
Ortou avenue poultry  yards. Thc
fowls on exhibition were raised by
Mr. F. W. Laing, i ho secured the
■.ggs from Mr. Foote. As with near
ly all varieties both the Rose comb
and Single comb type has been pro-
duced. The single comb ro^kerel
has the distinctive type of thc Orpington, whilst the Rose comb cockerel has the distinctive featur, p of the
Wyandoite, as well as the plumage.
This display makes a tempting
holiday season attraction.
Celestial rambler Sentencfd
The Chinaman who occupies thc
premises of thc old dhanghia restaurant on First street, east, appeared before thc magistrate on
.Monday, charged with running a
. ommnn naming house. The police
raided the establishment nnd   found
the proprietor and n number of
other celestials round the table
where was a considerable quantity of
money.
The accused denied that there was
gambling going on, but In spite oi
the  many eXCUMI  nnd    protestations
.if Innocence on the part of tho wily
chink, the charge was proven, nnd
the accused  was  lined $1G1.
The police havi' been suspicious of
this particular Chineso dive for some
time and it was principally on account of the fact that the Chinese
frequenting this place hal been apparently enticing white men into it
that the police decided to make the
raid which proved bo successful.

THE CHRISTMAS SENTIMENT
The festive seaBOii of Christmas is
approaching and while our citizens
are enjoying the good things ol the
occasion we would remind them that
there are many others in the community less fortunate than themselves, who would give much to re
ceive even a small purt of the good
cheer of Christmas. Vie are prone
to be selfish in our pleasures and for
getful of suffering humanity und at
this season above all we should en-
deavor to add to our own happiness
by securing the happiness ol others.
However, sincere we may be in our
ellorts to spread Christmas cheer,
our charity is none the less a testimony to our sense of the fact that
peace and good will have not come
upon the earth. Povorty and wretchedness are not to he -oflset hy
yearly gifts of baskets of food and
outgrown clothes. Vic ought to
make the spasmodic kindliness of
Christmas one of the constant forces
ol our industrial world. Equality and
fraternity are born not of charity
but of justice. Instead of commer
ciallzing Ohrlstmas we ought to
Cbrtstmasize commercialism. We do
not pretend to be prophets, but we
can all dare to hope that some day
the rtrong will not exploit tbe weak
thai some day fraternity will be
more than a rhetorical flourish; that
sume day love Will beget justice
rather than charity and Christmas is
the one day in the year that such a
venturesome hope seems more than
a will-o'-the-wisp. Soon the world
Will yield to thc glad carcssive spell
of Christmas. The sweet emotions
it inspires are sympathetic—universal
Other legends may dim and fade ibut
the traditions that cluster about the
white brow of Santa Clans will thrill
the heart of humanity as long as
little children live lo love and to be
loved. We repeal—let this sympathetic spirit extend to our less fortunate brethein this year and enable
them io share a little In this, the
greatest festival of humanity.

British Investors in Lands
In the matter of lnnd purchases
throughout the West 'by overseas cap
ital, it is to be noted thai this is
not now being left to land companies
to anything like the same proportion
ate extent as formerly—active as
leading companies of this class continue to be. As The Financial News
of London points out, purchases are
now chiefly made after actual visits
by thc buyers, or through individual
agents or firms. Also (and here
Canada has to thank Lloyd-George )
"a great company domiciled in London must pay income tax upon thc
profits which it makes ln Canada,
whereas the individual investor, provided he re-invests his profits on lhc
other si-de, n*'rd pay none. This sav
ing of income tax on the profits of a
very mo.leinte investment would pay
the expenses of an annual holiday
trip to Canada by the investor himself."—Canadian  Finance.
B. C. Timber Profitable
Vancouver, Dec. 13.—"I regard prii
dent investments in British Columbia timber as unsurpassed by any
other form of investment. At today's
prices it is a better buy than it was
three years ago, now that the question of tenure of title has been decided," said Mr. M. J. Scanlan ot
Minneapolis, president of the American Timber Holding Company, an
American corporation with a capital
of J6,00O,Ofl0, who is visiting this
city.
Mr. Scanlan is a partner of thr
well known sawmill firm of Brooke,
Scanlan & Co., owning plants and
timber limits in the Bahamas, the
Southern and Northwestern states
nnd British Columbia. He is also
president of the Powell River Paper
company which is erecting a large
v Paper mill at Powell River, 75 miles
north of this city.
"During the past year our timber
holding compnny bought two billion
feet of British Columbia timber,
bringing up our total holdings in
this province to about live billion
feet," continued Mr. Scanlan. "Our
purchases represent nn investment in
British  Columbia  of about (2,500,004
"The principal holdings are located on the Fraser river, Jordan river
and Quatsino sound, Powell lake and
the Narrows Arm district. It is not
our intention to sell one single stick
of timber at present. Wc nre quite
content to hold it for its value ii
increasing  daily.  "
Peculiarities of I Sil
It is only three weeks to the New-
Year. The year 1911 will be peculiar because it will open on a Sunday
and close on a Sunday. It will als >
have its chief holidays either befoiv
or after a Sunday. New Year's Day
will, of course, lie celebrated on a
Monday. Dominion Dny will fall on
a Sunday, giving the benefit of Sunday as an additional holiday, an 1
as Christmas will be celebrated on e
Monday, there also the workers wi I
get an extra day's holiday. So that
with Labor Day and Thanksgiving
Day all falling on a Monday it looks
like a good year for thc railroad
with their week end excursions.
May Increase Dividend
The report to be presented to th •
shareholders of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce for the year ending
Nov. 30, 1910, is in the nature of a
record. The not profits for the year
reaching a grand total of $1,838,-
C65.04, are the largest in the history
of any Canadian bank. Last year
the band carried forward at credit
of profit and loss account the sum
of $722,139.02. This year the bank
will have paid out in dividends
89-JO.CCO. written off bank premises
$300,000, transferred to pension fund
$50,000, leaving a balance to lie carried forward of $310,204.0*1;. The
bank has deposits not bearing interest of $34,481,663.22 and deposits
bearing interest, Including Interest
accrued to date, of $92,352,M«\::|
The annual meeting of the share
holders will lie held on Jnnnnry in,
1911, when it is confidently expected
that tho bank will be placed upon n
10 per cent, dividend basis.
Inquest Held
Vt the inquest held nt Siramous
by Oorontr Clark, on tip booy of
William Boyce, a settler ml Annesty
Arm, who was 'found deal In his
boat recently at Seymour Narrows,
by tho crew of the Maud Annls, the
following verdict was returned; —
"He fell from his boat and for Some
reason vrtie unable to recover himself, and so died, at Seymour Narrows, on or about lho Urst of De-
f ember, 1910,"

Dear Sir,—In the Colonist of yesterday morning, December 7th, a
small note was reprinted Irom your
paper, date not given, entitled ;'Ex-
tra advice wanted," and related to
lhc agricultural development of your
district and statiag that tho local
farmers would reap much benefit
Irom proper agricultural expert
knowledge such as could be supplied
by a competent man.
Our Mr. Middlcton has been in
your district a number of times and
Is familiar with at least a largenum-
ber of the orchards there. if you
would kindly advise mo ns to the
extent extent, to whicli his advice Is
being taken 1 shall be very m.u.li
obliged.
1 regret very much than an artldc
if this nature should be published
.when the depnrtment is using nil the
noncy in its command to place men

Vlr. Mlddloton, our assistant hortl-
•uiturist for the Kast, and West

n his hands and am nnxious to have
!iis territory subdivided so that another man may bo placed In this

If you can lend your aid     towards
ecuring this result     such assistance
rill be gratefully received.

Po the Editor.
Sir,—In your issue of thc 7th you
called the attention of ratepayers to
the neglect given to municipal maters and suggested that the system
if street corner politics were detri-
nentnl to the city as a whole. I
consider you were justified in re-
errin; to this matter and suggesting
o the ratepayers the broad id.a.
If we arc to have a properly governed oity it is up to the citizens themselves to get interested, discuss th?
[Uestlons of the hour, formulate a
ilatform and place in a body of
nen to carry it out.
In the past our councellors have
necn chosen at the last minute tak-
•n otlice without any chart to follow
.'rom the public, the result has been
insatisfactory both to the publi,* and
he councellors. . It Is very easy for
ratepayers to criticize the council and
s too  often     done  unjustly. We
can't expect every act of legislation
lo please us individually, and too
many are prone to accept that
which is for the best interest- at
large.
I have no fault to find with any
if our councellors who have served
anre incorporation. I must say,
towever, they have lacked the sympathy anl support of the electorate
luring their term of ollice. I consider
his a very important time in the
isl iv ol Revelstoke, our improvc-
icnts have been very large, especial-
y during the past year, some renaming unfinished. Instead of hav-
ng the annual bowl of "turn the
enseals out" it would be a wise
nove on the part of the citizens if
he present council were allowed nn-
ither term to finish up.
I mention this, ns I believe with
proper organized committees in the
different wards, acting Conjointly
with n view of education along the
lines of single tax, thc citizens will
be able to elect a council on this
ilatform in another year that will
iweep everything hefore it: In any
case if the city of Revelstoke 'is to
pr ispcr, its council must bc elected
to perform nn intelligent amount of
work set down in the platform it is
elected on. This would be better for
thc city nnd I am sure satisfactory
both to the citizens nnd councellors
themselves.
Yours truly,
RATEPAYER.

At one time or another most of

land; thousands have come into our
borders during the lasl year, who
.vill experience this sense of "lonli-

their behalf, we bespeak that kindly
hospitality, and that courteous invitation which is so characteristic
ol the Western people.

Spy Pleads Guilty
London, Dec. 13.—There was an
unexpected and dramatic termination
to tha alleged German spy case at
rlinrliest.'r  Assizes recently.
Lieutei ant Siegfried Helm, the
young Engineer officer charged under
Jie Ollic nl Secret Act with sketch-
Dg forts at Portsmouth, pleaded
'Guilty" directly he entered the
lock, and was at once released on
riving his "word of honor as a gentleman" not to make any further
naval or military sketches in this
country.
He hal already been cleared of the
more serious charge of felony— the
accusation lirst brought against him
by the crown of having obtained information with the intention of comf
municat ng it to a foreign power,
and had only to answer to thc "mis-
demoancr" of wrongfully securing
sketches for bis own private use.

A   Christmassy flavor,      with      an
abundance of light reading,      marks
the  December  number  of  Rod      and
llun in Canada, published  by    W.  J.
Taylor,   Limited,   Woodstock,       Ont.
Included  are some     notable articles,
Mr.  Bonnycastle Dale  telling of    the
contrasts to be found at this Beason
.111  the     I'acilic    coast as   compared
with other portion* of Canada; while
the delights of a canoe trip in    New
Brunswick with the exhilarating   experiences of days of rapid water are
well described by Mr.  S.  B.    Bustin.
Then there are lishing stories recalling the pleasures ol   rod     and   line,
Airs.     Charlotte C. Taleott      giving
voice to the feelings of many     who
are inevitably  led  to engage in    the
nroper season in a recreation      that
has tilled some of the happiest hourB
of their, lives.  Big game hunters are
not forgotten and a paper by Dr. Ed
ward Breck on European and Ameri-
nn methods is calculated to give all
interested   in  game  problems  in  this
country    much    food  for       thought.
Crisp, bright verses,    with   an   Old
Time story,  and    many  other    good
things complete a number   that   for
variety and  interest is    the equal of
any that have ever gone before   and
well sustains the reputation     which
the Magazine  has  achieved.
The following suggestion from,   the
Fenelon  Falls Gazette,  may    be    of
interest to those who are mixed   up *
with the immigration question.
The regulation requiring that immigrants must have twenty-five or
jifty dollars in their possession,, before being allowed to enter this
country fits in with the principle gen .
crally accepted nowadays as correct,
that a man's worth is measurable in
no other way than by the ownership
of worldly wealth. It would havo
shut out from Oanada, had they wish
ed to enter, very many most worthy
men, at some stage in their careers;
ai»d may lw doing so now. At any
rate, if tho regulation is to bo continued, if an immigrant is not to be
permitted to come into this country
until we are sure he has something
we may possibly get away from him
let us be consistent and stop anybody going out of tho country who
has made more than fifty dollars
in it.

Municipalities Mu&t Help
Montreal, Dec. 13.— Chairman Malice, of the railway commission, this
afternoon laid down the ruling in
no uncertain terms that in future
municipalities would have to bear a
proportion of the cost of safety appliances at level crossings and in
other ways which were made necessary by thc progress of urban and
manic.pal growth. The share he
broadly outlined at about one-third
subject of course, to special arrange
ments for special conditions But he
made it plain thnt the railroads
were not to bc saddled with the
whole cost of the protection of the
public, which often had to bc protected  from  itself.
"If" said Chairman Mabec, "we
mnke an attempt to load upon thc
railroads tho whole cost of all these
safety appliances we should either
have the railroads out of business in
ii short time, or cine they would Iw
compelled to make sharp increases in
.'reight and pnsBenger rates. The mu-
nicii nlities themselves contribute to
these dangers. Mnnbipalities, cities
ami cities are growing in every dircc
lion, and why should they not have
lo contribute to'the cost of protecting) h.-se level crossings?
"There l« no arguing that municipalities should not pay anything, be-
cause tbey have not to pay. Wc arc
living in a more enlightened age and
ibe public must pay for decent pro-
tei 11'ui. The march of civilization
demands it and we must go down in
mu pockets and pay for it. The question m whether a third is too much
lm lbe municipalities' share or not,
nr whether the railroads should pay
three quarters, That is a matter to
Ih1 derided."

Novel Electiou Platforms
The forthcoming mayoralty contest in Winnipeg will be fought out
on rather novel lines. It will be in ef
feet a clash between practical moral
ists and theoretical moralists. Rev.
Dr. Shearer, th**. author of thc Lord's
Day act, is probably the most advanced typo of theoretical moralist
in the Dominion of Canada. He is an
absolute believer in the principle. of
making the people good by act of
parliament, or by any other form ot
subsidiary legislature. In the course
of his numerous activities as a paid
official of the Lord's Day alliance ho
denounced the city of Winnipeg as
thc most immoral city in Canada.
The mayor of Winnipeg during the
last two years has been Mr. Sanford
Kvans, who happens to bc a fino
type of thc young Canadian, with
hi|h ideals and a blameless personal record, politically and otherwise. It was the intention of Mayor
Kvans to retire at the end ol the
present term, but as a result of Rev
Dr. Shearer's strictures upon the con
dit ion of Winnipeg, Mayor Kvans has
decided to again become a candidate
in January next. In the investigation which ic ulii'. 1 from Rev. Dr.
Shearer's charges it was shown that
the police commissioners of Winnipeg, including Mayor Evans and
Hon. T. Mayne Daley, the latter well
known in Ottawa, hnd adopted tbe
policy of tho segregation of vice,
which 1b regarded by practical moral
Ists as the most efficient manner of
dealing with tho social evil. Rev.
Dr. Shearer Is a representative ot
tho theoretical moralist, who bc-
lievcii in the possibility of absolute
suppression. Originally there were
three mayorallty candidates for tho
Position of successor to Mayor Ev-
niiH. One of these is a thooretlcal
moralist of tho Shearer school, and
when Mayor Evans decided to contest thc mayoralty seat again ln Jus
tiflcation of his course, the other two
candidates dropped out, so that there
will be now a clear cut Issue b&
tween tho practical and thetbeoret-
'iii moralists, and the people ot
Winnipeg will be asked to give n com
monsenso decision on     the question.
I The result will be viewed with ■    In-
* tercet.
