President R. McDonald took thc
chaii' at thc unuuul meeting of the
Conservative Association which was
liclil in the Selkirk hall on Wednesday evening, the 13^1 inst. there being a very large attendance ol members. At 8:30 p.m. the President called the meeting to order and briefly
outlined thc order of business; the
lirst matter before the mectiug being thc election of otlicers for the ensuing year, president, secretary, vice
presidents, assistant secretary, treasurer and executive committee. Thc
Chairman then called for nominations for t.he position of president of
the association. In response, thc
names ol two candidates were duly
proposed and seconded, lt. McDonald
and Rand (iibiions. Mr. Gibbons requested permission to "withdraw, but
bis nominators refused their consent
and a ballot was called for. Messrs.
.Iiickson, Parker and Field acted as
scrutineers. Result,   ol   ballot:—R.
Gibbons elected by a narrow majority, after which Mr. Gibbons then
took the cbair and presidency of the
association for the coming year.
Mr. Gibbons:—I heartily appreciate
the honor in placing me at the head
of what is conceded to be the strongest political organization in 13. 0.
I wish to express my appreciation of
the good work done by my predecessor, and which is shown iu the present stnte of the association, and if
I can retire at the end of my term
of ollice with a record equal to that
of the last president; 1 shall bc more
than  satisfied.   (Loud  applause.)
The next business was the election
of vice presidents. By ballot, the
meeting decided to choose the vice
presidents one by one instead ol reelecting the old  officers en-bloc
The most exciting ballot ol the evening was a sporting contest between Mr. R. Bquarehrlggs and M.
Lawler lor the position of second
vice president. Mr. McLean rose to
remark that the vote papers dis -
tributed were too small for such a
name as Squarebriggs. and he feared that candidate would be handicapped; the ballot resulted:— Robt.
Squarebriggs, elected.
The following officers were elected
unanimously:
H.
A.
T.
F.
H.
and to those old pioneers who have
stood by the association for all these
years, who by example and pnicept
bave developed tbe association, we
owe to them more perhaps than wc
can appreciate al this present moment. These gentlemen were instru -
mental in forming the hrst associa -
Hon of tine party, and through tlicir
efforts, a young Conservative asso -
(•iation was formed in our city. Thc
young association, had a healthy
growth and 1 think I can safely say,
that fully eighty per cent of tbc
j ouiig men of this city, whose names
appear on the voters list, belong to
that association. (Cheers.| This
indeed is very - encouraging to mc.
Something which is still more encouraging, is the facti that while 1
have bad the honor ol representing
you for twelve years, while I have
I cen before you ou five diltercnt occasions, (or your approval and support, you have on each and every
oci-B'tion given mc a heartier support
than on thc former occasion, this is
one of the most encouraging features
of my political experience, when one
fi .-Is thnt he not only has the support of his old time friends, but that
tbc newer clement arc also appreciative and thus express their confidence
and 1 wish to voice my very sinccr-
est thanks for the manner in which
yon bave treated mc on every oc -
ensiou.

"Old Dr. Foster," and the choruses,
"Twinkling Stars," Lazy Tom,"

BAZAAR GREAT SUCCESS
The bazaar held by the Ladies ot
the Altar Society of St. Francis
church in the new Parish hall, was
very well patronized and a great
success, -JllOO being realized.
The hall, decorated with bunting
greenery and fairy lights presented
a gay and festive appearance. Mrs.
8. tl. Robbins, thc president ot tbe
society, superintended the urrange -
ments and was indefatigable, as were
all the ladies iu their oflorts to make
all who attended thc bazaar feel that
they wore welcome and that the occasion was something more than a
mere money making project. All
who attended thc bazaar went away
feeling that they got more than tbe
worth of their money in enjoyment
and  value  received.
The tea booth, iu charge of Mrs.
Hobson and Miss Fraser, assisted by
Miss Blanche McCarty and Miss L.
McCarthy, was decked out in true
Japanese fashion oven to thc waitresses who were attired in attractive
Japanese costumes. Thc electric decorations so nicely executed were donated by Mr. Duck, who superintended thc lighting ot thc hull and reel -
dence.
The flower booth, attractively gotten up, was in charge of Mrs. Dr.
Sutherland, assisted by Miss O'Don-
aliuc and Miss Call. Thc returns
from this booth show that thc people ot Revelstoke possess the true
artistic taste. The fancy work booth
was capably handled by Miss Finn,
assisted by thc Misses Eleanor Bell,
Paquct and Shaefer. Mr. Martin
Stortz helped materially by rounding
up prospective buyers—thc ladies did
the rest. Mr. Stortz felt, umply repaid when bc was declared thc winner of a beautiful cushion donated
by Mrs.  Dr.   Sutherlandi
The plain sewing booth was in
charge of Mrs. Perry and MrB. R.M.
Smytbe. Here as well as at the
fancy work booth patrons found that
everything exhibited for sale was just
what they wanted for Xmas presents
and all took advantage of an i
ceptional opportunity.
In connection with this booth was
a picture contest. Mr. A. Connolly
drew the lucky number, and obtained
a beautiful picture donated by Mr.
Howson.
The doll booth in charge, of Miss
(dive Bell and Miss Emma Morgan,
the candy handled by Ellen McCarthy
nnd Vera Bell, and the fish pond operated by Miss Matz and Jeanne
Robbins, were all centres of attrac -
tion for the children. Much interest
was taken in guessing the name of
the beautiful Doll whicli was to be
given to the one who should guess
the correct name. On opening the
envelope in which the name had been
sealed before the contest started, the
name was found to be Princess Patricia. No one having guessed tbe
name the doll was given to Miss
Ulive Bell, who had obtained the
greatest number of guesses.
Mrs. White, Mrs. Ham nnd Mrs.
Carter, dispensed the good things in
home cooking nt the culincry booth,
and from the way In wbich they were
Patronized one might Infer thnt ev -
erythttig was just like mother used
to make.
Miss Vera Bell demonstrated that
girls cau count correctly as Bbe
guessed the correct number of nuts
In the bottle and won a beautiful
silk   scarf   donated   by   Mrs.   Lonzo.
In the museum downstairs, wbich
was iu charge of Mr. Mark Mulaven,
was to be seen the finest collection
of national specimens yet exhibited ln
Itevelstoke. Much credit is due tbe
young men for the excellent iny in
which they hnndled this department.
Who says tlie hoys can't decorate?
The young men learned many things
about past, present and future, hy
having their horoscopes cast at tbe
(iipi.v'ii tent, which was in charge of
Miss Cussic Frnscr, and was well
patronized.
The greatest feature of the bazaar
was the Archery Contest, held upstairs. This department was In
charge of Messrs. Jink Fraser nnd
.toe MeKinnon. Tlio hows nnd arrows were real and the contest was
keen and Interesting. When the score
of the tirst evening wiih declared It
was found thnt Krlc Robbins and Mr
Lawlor were equal, winning between
them a dressed turkey and a sack of
flour, which tbey donated to the
pastor Father McKenzie. Tho turkey
was donated by P. Burns & Co. and
thc sack of flour by O. B. Hume &
Compauy.

lucc.cssliil competitors were: 1st, Mr.

Tne important announcement made*
. the Hon. Thos. Taylor, in his
apec.h i^etore the Revelstoke Conservative Association on Wedneeday evening last, as reported fully elsewhere in tbis issue, regarding tbe
(settlement of the Crown lands lying
within the railway belt, will he received with great satisfaction by the
public oi Reveletoke. Kor a long
time past we in this district have
been agitating this question, and nt
last it would seem wc are on thc
point il having something definite
doue. in regard to these lands. Situated close to Kevelstoke. and tributary to this city, are thousands ol
acres ol the most valuable laud now
remaining unsettled in the province
ol British Columbia. Much of this
land bus been logged over, or partially cleared ol timber, and trom its
proximity to tbi* main line ol the
C P.R., to water navigation, aud to
tbe great coast und prairie markets,
the land is admirably placed from
every point o! view, for economical
aud remuuerative farming operations
and tbere is no reason whatever, why
these lands should lie allowed to remain .die and unproductive, uo natural resources are being preserved by
their present inactivity, on ihe contrary greal natural resources ot soil,
climate and situation, are being wast
ed by tbe land being kept dormant,
and  will continue to  be wasted until

Fallacious Arguments
We have seen and heard much about
mail order houses, anu have taken
tbe trouble to look carefully into
the matter, to see it ihere is any
truth ill the statements that, these
concerns are able to undersell our
local merchants for thc same quality
of  goods.
We liud tbat the only caBe in which
they undersell our home merchants is
in some uuimportant articles of small
value and of wbich every pcrsou
knows ihe price. These they sell at
coot, or even less, iu order that tbey
may mduce you to purchase from
I hem the more important articles ut
full or even intluted prices.
Very few people, except those actually engaged iu a particular busi - '
ness. arc good judges ol quality and
In most cases it is necessary Ior a
buyer to trust the fairness and in -
tegrity ol the merchant Irom whom
he buys. It can thus bc seen what
advantage the mail order house obtains by sellinb a few Bmall staples,
the values ol which are generally
known, at a low price, in this way
many are led to believe that their
prices are correspondingly low on
• more important goods.
The  arguments  in   lavor  of      mail
order houses' are familiar  to all  our
ivaders.    Briefly   slated,      they      are
that these lirms  buy  m  larger quantities  and  consequently  at a      lower,
price  than  the local  merchant.      and
that their      turn-over    Is  so      much ■
greater  that  they  enn  aflord  to sell
on a lower margin  and still  pay  dividends  on  their  capital  stock.   While
some of these  arguments    may  seem I
true,  they (all  to  thc ground    when :

PROVINCIAL    MATTERS.
A lew points probably would not
lie amies, in connection with provincial mutt.t.-. 1 have very little in
that connection however, to tell you
tonight that you do not already
know. The sejjsion iu nlioiit to convene on the llth ot next January and
we expect that 3.11m* very useful and
practical legislation will he introjluc
ed. Estimates of course will he the
tirst consideration ot my deportment
being the large spending department of the province, and when 1
tell you that last year, with au expenditure ol 3,500,000 dollarB, and
estimated revenue ot 7,100,000, that
the estimated revenue this year is nt
least *H<i,:>*00.000, I can safely guar •
nntee to the workers and the business men ot Revelstoke, that our es
timntes (tir the coming year will far
exceed anything in the past history
of the province ot British Columbia.
1 Loud Applause.) We appreciate fully the importance of the development ol the agricultural diitricts and
It will he our vain effort, to en -
tleavor hy building of good roadu
trails, to open up thc country to
the industry of the farmer and agriculturist.
LAND    SETTLEMENT.   '
We have before us an isauc which u
probably of more importance than
•un other. In the setUeinent of the
lamb lying within the railway belt.
We feel that the Domiuion govern
tiamt is ln accord with us on a poi
iy nf opening up thut Bection as
iimckly ns possible. We nil know thr
disadvantages to the city of Revel
.itoke, of the (uaccesHahlllty o! this
inini to lhl public, owing to the
fart t It fit In tbe past, no titles could
he obtained. It has heen suggested,
nml the mntter is now th* subject of
negot int ions. that th* Trovinci il
itrvvernnient, or nt. nil events, that
sve should administer the lands otir-
kcIvcn I am imt in n ponltlon to say
lurther ml the intention, hut I know
we have the hearty sympathy of the
Dominion government In this Connexion, nnd T hope that this veisd
question will Im Settled In the near
future to the satisfaction of the people of this city and district. (Prolonged rimers.) We know we have lit
the twenty mile belt, some of the
InnBl valuable agricultural lands In
the province, ami these lands lying
idle prsCtlcnlly stripped of their
timber,     and  ready     tor  the plow,
would be und arc, one ol tbe greatest assets we could have, and iu tbe
luuire us iu the past, 1 will use every effort in my power, to develop
and open up these lauds. I hope tbe
Iiuii. y 1 outlined at the last election
will go through, we shall endeavor
lo carry out that policy, as (ar as
possible, tbat is, to connect this
city nt Revelstoke with the Arrow
Lakes.
1 hope, if this settlement of the
land question is decided iu the near
future, thut 1 will be able at tbe
next session ol the legislature, to
ask lor a very considerable sum to
curry on this work, und 1 hope to
advance the work until it reuches the
Arrow Lakes. Iu this wuy a great
country will become tributary to the
city of RevelBtoke, and I think we all
appreciate that after all, the agriculturist is the man we have to depend
upon; I will strive in this reBpect to
do everything 1 can to encourage
that policy. (Cheers.)
I THE    LAST    ELECTIONS.
The result ol the last elections I
thiuk, is something that the people
of Reveletoke and' district, must in-
' deed feel sincerely proud of, I remember the night of that election, how
we scanned the returns in front of
tbe Colonist Office, to find what your
returns were. We had telegrams passing throughout tbe length of lbe
province to thc effect thut Dr. King
was exceptionally strong at Revolstoke and that ln tbis city and district  he  would  at  least  break  even.
I of course, knew Ihut this would
not be the case, and when I noticed
in the bulletin, that good old Revelstoke eity gave 1K9 votes majority
to the t'onservatlve candidate, later
increased by the district to 334, I
do not think 1 waa ever so pmud ln
my life. The Premier 1 may say,
whom you all know, (cheers) and respect, (cheers) wa- as anxious as
waa in this respect, because the parties sending these telegrams were cer
tninly, very persistent. In the
whole constituency of Kootenay, In
which there are nine divisions. Revel
(stoke and Revelstoke riding wns tbe
I only division in whieh the Liberal
candidate lost his deposit. This Is
1 a mark of the work which vour as-
I sodatlon Is doing, and did at the
Dominion election.
FINAL
I thank you (or youi kind attention, the hour Is getting late. Ws
have had a very Interesting and keen
eontest here in some respect*, nud I
can assure you that there is nothing
which tendi, mors to strengthen the
association. Ihun to find Ihe members thereof. Iinniiiit oul strongly as
they  have  dons  tonight,   whilst    the
keen rivalry and interest,     and good!
natured     jokes      that    pass in  these]
meetings, are something indeed which
must appeal to everyone    present as'
showing  an  exceptionally  keen  inter-1
est in your association, in its     progress and its     members,     1 am sure
that  the   record   of  the  Conservative
Association, and the executive there -
of, represented ns same is around the
board this evening,   will  be juBt      as
satisfactory   to   you   when   the     next
election      comes    around,  ns it    has
been in the      past.    I     have nothing
further to say to you.  but to thank
yon  for the      very      kind    uttention
which you have given me. and     (or,
the  able,   kind   and   generous  assistance which at all times you have ei-
tended to me, as your representative'
in  the legislature."   (Loud  applause) ,
A vote ol thanks, proposed by Pres
ident Gibbons,     was enthusiastically I
and      unanimously  tendered to     our
representative  "Good  Roads Taylor"
and  a unanimous vote o( thanks    to
the retiring officers for their servi.es
during   the   past   year,   brought      tbe
proceedings to a close at 1U:40  p.m.
Mercantile Co., G. Bell, H. Munuing,

It was found impossible to run off
sullicient competitions to dispose of
all the prizes in the two evenings.
Those remaining ure reserved for a
future exhibition ol skill on the part
of the knights of the Arrow.
Among those who visited the bazaar and the ones who seemed to enjoy it most, it appearance count (or
anything. were the railway boys.
Practice  up  your long  bow  boys,  we
are going to give you another chanco
soon.
The ladies ot the Altar Society
wish to extend their sincere thanks
to uli who either by their patronage
or their donations helped to mako
the bazaar such a complete success.
The Indies have incurred heavy expenses in funi 1 shi 11 g the new parish
house, and the way in which the
people of RevelBtoke have supported
them in their work will encourage
them to still greater undertakings in
the future.

Christmas Comes
But once a year,
And when it comes
It brings good cheer
In our childhood
days we all learned this old couplet and believed it
truly. With the
years
some of the glamour may have worn
off the joys surrounding this festive season, but
surely most of us
can summon enough
enthusiasm to make
those about us at
least Happy.
