DROPPED DEAD AT WORK
Dl CP.R. STEHSHOVEL
Jas. Gavin, a Scotchman, suddenly expires at Three Valley
just after mid-day meal
The body of Geo. Gavin, agod 38
veins wns brought inlo the city on
Wednesday afternoon trom Three
Valley where the man had been en-
gaged at work on a steam shovel,
and had suddenly dropped dead.
Thc workman had just finished his
dinner and returning to work had
just started In on his afternoon duties, wh.-n be suddenly threw up liis
hands, and falling to the ground,
died almost suddenly and before aid
of any kind could  reach him.
The body was brought so the city
and efforts to locate bis relatives resulted In a brother-in-law being
found in OalgaTN. He was at once
notified nn.l is now in the city in
charge of the remains which are at
Howson's  undertaking parlors.
From papers found on the body it
is apparent that the man originally
came from Scotland and bad been
a member of the Masonic fraternity
at Peterhead, Scotland. He had
been In this country about four
years, and had just commenced the
season's work when his sad fate overtook him. The cause of his death
is pronounced  as heart failure.
T'h. funeral will take place from
Howson's undertaking parlors tomorrow afternoon.
R.M.R.'s SMOKE
And Enjoy Themselves After the
Weekly Drill
The local company of H.M.R.'s indulged in a smoker on Thursday evening of this Week, which
resulied in an excellent time. During
the course ol the evening's procedure
a show of hands was called to find
out how many of the volunteers intended attending camp at Kamloops
in June of this year, and yuitc a lot
signilicnl  their intention ol doing so.
The program run in connection with
thc smoker was as follows:—Toast,
Thc King; selection, t!eo. Hawker;
SOIlg, Mr. Burbidge; contribution, K.
Bond; Lannigan'a Ball, Hf Bdwards;
Reminiscences of Arm> Life, Sam.
Young; Fighting Mac, Kco. Hawker;
song, Col. Sergt. Donald; Lady of tlie
Lake. H. Edwards; five minute boxing bouts by  members.
Hobson's Store Burglarized
The store of Alex. Hobson's on Mc-
Kin-.ie avenue was broken into on
Thursday night last and a quantity
of eatables stolen. Kntrance was
gained by ft st.le window in the store
but evidently the culprits were frightened away before they had completed their depredations. A bag full
ot canned stufT, tobaccos, etc., whieh
tbe burglar or burglars had gathered
with the express purpose of tn'iin;
with them was lefc behind.
The local police are confident they
know the culprit who committed the
deed, but he had made his getaway
before he could be apprehended.
FAMOUS CORONATION JEWELS
Estimated the Apparel and Ornaments Will Cost $55,000,000
London, April Ji..—S,,tno famous
jewels will be seen nt the Cor,unit ion
of Kin.- lienrg-e V. It is est minted
that the value of the apparel and ornament- worn in Westminster Abbey
will exceed $56,000,000.
Tbe value of the regalia was calculated at 115,00 DM at the enmmence-
mmt ol King Edward's reign. It
thin ranked second in value only to
that of the Russian Bmperor. Hlnoc
that time the Cullman diamonds and
several leaser jewels bave li-ccn addod
Th" actual   market   value of  Ibe fnm-
lotitb African stones is probably
not less than $10,000,000.
There will be present at the Coronation between 7*5*0 nnd mki peeresses
and .1.,wager peeresses, all ,,( whom
will wear their finest [ems. Some ol
them nre practicnlly jirlceless in that
they are unique and hnve. therefore,
no Standard of ■ nluatii.n.
The i nt ■•'. Aberdeen possesses
some famous emeralds. Lady Wim-
poseeasea th>* Hurst rubies ln
tbe world, nming them being the
Hope ruby, a sti.ne far exceeding In
villi;.* even the more famous Hope
1 nu. nl It is so blue in tint, that hy
transmitted light it might almost lie
taken for a very dark tonsd sapphire
With her magnificent diamonds and
pearls, Lady Wimborne will carry
about $500,000 worth of jewels on her
person at the Coronation.
In the mere matter of money's
worth she will be eclipsed by her
Amcrirau niece, the Duchess of Marlborough, who will no doubt wear the
historic pearls, some of whicli belonged to Marie Antoinette, while
others formed the collection of the
Empress Catherine of Russia. So
perfectly matched are they in skin
and color that their equal ns a Bet
could not bc bought for less than
$750,00*0*.
Another wonderful set of pearls is
that belonging to the Countess <yf II-
cheeter. They are the most perfect
black pearls in existence. They were
purchased from the Hmpresa Eugenie
for $125,000 but their market Value
today is probably three or four times
that amount.
This estimate docs not take into nc
count the fortunes represented by the
jewelry of Indian princes and chiefs
attending the ceremony, some of
whom are said to carry from $5,000-
OflO to $25,000,000' eaeh on their persons on great state occasions.

[ WILL BE
DISTRIBUTING POINT
Nor-Western Talking Machine Co.
Has Been Organized and Will
Do Business in This City
That this city is beginning to bc
recognized ns one of the big business
and commercial centres of the west
and a place from which big and profitable business can be done is evidenced by tbe steady and gradual invasion being made by reliable enterprises which seek to make their
headquarters here.
Thc latest evidence of this is the
establishment in tho city by the Victor Talking Machine Co., of a general distributing agency for Alberta
and the West. The organization here
will be known as the Nor-Western
Talking Machine Co., Ltd., and their
territory will cover the whole ol A'l-
berta and west as far as Kamloops,
including the whole of tho Interior,
and the Okanagan. In Revelstoke one
of the largest stocks of talking machines will be kept constantly on
band, and from here this large territory will be supplied.
The Victor Talking Machine Co.,
has its Canadian headquarters in
Montreal, and its business throughout thc Dominion is known to he enormous, the quality of tbis class of
machine having been proven to lie
of the highest grade. In looking around for a place where the most business could In' handled and to bbe
best of advantage thc company nt
once recognized the location of Revelstoke as being one of thc most advantageous*, and its decision to make
this the headquarters of so large a
territory ran only be construed as a
recognition of the strategic importance of Revelstoke as a commercial
rent. re.
Mr. 0. F. Lindmark will bc thc
•general manager of the Nor-Western
Talking Machine Oo., Ltd., but just
where the organization     will   locate
its stock has not yet been decided.
Notice of this will be given in subsequent issues.
Six Months For Him
A man named C. II. Adnms was
brought before Magistrate Hamilton
this moi ning on two separate charges
of theft, one of stealing a suit of
clothes from Real & Young, and the
other of stealing a coat and vest
from L. A. Brissetto. He was found
guilty on both charges and sentenced
io three months on each charge, the
sentenoes to run consecutively.
MACHINERY   PEOPLE  BUSY.
Montreal,   April  2*8.—
The harveBt machinery people arc
looking .'or an extremely busy yonr.
All the new -.ettlers will need new
machinery and there is going to be
considerable dilllculty in outfitting
every farmer or would-he farmer in
time. The BaWyer Haney people report that their factories are workiag
day and night to provide for the de-
man Is which are coming from thc
west for ploughs, reapers, rakes and
so on. They also notice that the
demand lor henviei machinery sueb
ns threshing outfits and trnctloa
ploughs is much greater thnn it was
a lew years ago, showing that the
tanners are getting more prosperous
nn.l preparing for operations on (1
liiigei  scale this year.
Barly this winter the Canadian Pa-
eille. the tlrnnil Trunk nnd Hie Canadian Northern placed thoir orders for
freight, cars to be delivered this summer In time to help haul the harvest
to Fort William. Smre then additional otders have been sent in for a
total of over ten thousand cars. Preparations aro also being mado tor

UNDESIRABLE IMMIGRANTS
frmy of Hoboes Strike Revelstoke and Ordered to Move
The annual trek of thc hoboes to
and from Calgary and the coast cities has commenced in earnest. No
less than eighteen of thom were
rounded up yesterday morning early
by the local police here and placed
In durance vile. There were all sorts
and shapes of tramps—tho long loan
lanky guy who could scarcely throw
a shadow, the short thick fellow and
the medium chap who fell somewhere
between the two make ups. But they
were all inmistakeably tired and
laid down on the outskirts ot the
city to rest. This proved their undoing, for thc local police pounced
upon them and run them all in. In
an interview with the motley throng
in police cells, each nnd all assured
the reporter that It was work they
wanted, but they didn't look like
workers.
The gang all appeared belore Magistrate Hamilton yesterday afternoon and were ordered forthwith to
leave the cily. Needless to say thoy
did so.

SPECIAL NOTICE
Mann
The New
C. N. n.
Townsite
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 the 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 prop-
__erty around which lots will be sell-
t ing 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.

MIRACULOUS RESULTS
IN DUNVE6AN, CB,
GIN PILLS Brought Relief
"I suffered untold misery even when
under treatment from the best doctors
for over ten mouths, and nothing seemed
to do me nny good or relieve my painful
condition. My trouble was Inflammation of Kidneys and Bladder,
I finally determined to go to the Victoria
Hospital, Halifax ,for treatment.
Two days, however, before my intending departure, a neighbor called and
happening to have a GIN PILL in
his pocket, insisted on my taking it. I
did so and six hours after taking it, the
results and benefits I derived were
simply nothing inoieor less than miraculous. Instead of going to the hospital,
I sent for a box of CIN PILLS witli the
result that I am a cured man. I recommend CIN PILLS to everyone suffering
Irom Kiduey Trouble."

FINAL   BASKETBALL.
Tuedday evening last the linal i"
the Senior basketball league of the
Y.M.c.A. was played ,.iT between th
Tinkers and the Intermediate teams.
While the playing was rather tough
none of the members of either teams
Indulged in any boxing bouts, as hai
often been tbe case in many of the
final games. The Tinkers were in
the pink of condition anil though thej
had not been iu the gym. to practice
for over H month, they demonstrate,!
that they still had their eye for th*
baskets at all times when tbey hal
an opportunity to shoot. They out
classed the Intermediate team from
start to finish with their pass work
and combination. The Intermediate
team did not have so many chances
to shoot for the basket and when
th y did they seemed to be iu hard
luck as they missed easy shots. Thc
Une up was as follows:
Tinkers—B. McEachren, centre; H*
Burridge. left forward; B, Cameron,
right forward; H. Mulholland, left
guard: W.  Kennedy,  right giiatd.
intermediate team—F. Lyttle, centre: M. Anderson, left forward; B.
Bruce, right forward; 6P. Daniels,
right guard; Ef Corley, left guard.

season? But few big league manag
