Great Britain Regards Action
Serious-Turkey Plans Invasion of Greece
Rome, Sept. 2ii—it is wml-offlclal-
ly announoed here thnt Italy and
Turkey are In a state of 'war, beginning at 2:30 o'clock on the afternoon of Friday, September 29. Th<<
reason Is Riven that Turkey has (iiil-
eil to moct the demanda contained in
the Italian ultimatum.
London, Sept. 29—The occupation
of Tripoli by the Italian expeditionary force is reported as progressing
through advices to the foreign oflloe
here fi-qm Malta. Turkey is said not
to he resisting the operation.
Martini law hns lieen declared in
Constantinople and a general massacre of all Europeans is directed ag-
ninst all   European  nations  alike.
London, Sept. 29—The news that
Italy has occupied Tripoli is expected here nt nny time.
The foreign office presented a scene
of great activity this afternoon ns
a result of the Turko-Italian crisis.
The foreign secretary, Sir Edward
tlrcy, had long and separate conferences with Italian Ambassador Marquis de Francavilla, and the Turkish
Ambassador Tewflk Pasha. It Is
understood tbat the Turkish cabinet
at last night's meeting framed a
second appeal to the powers to use
their influence to prevent war. Tbe
diplomats hero ure strong in the belief that no tender of good offices on
the part of other countries can avail
to alter Italy's program. Great excitement prevails here over the announcement of war.
A despatch from Vienna to thc
Central News Agency says that the
Turkish army reserves have been
called to the colors and despatched
against the Greek frontier. It adds
that Turkey, realizing that it cannot
defeni itself against Italy's navy,
has determined to attack Greece on
the pretext that the Hellenes are
plotting to grab the island of Crete.
Both England and Germany are
alarmed at the situation and are
seeking concerted action by the powers in an effort to avoid a general
European conllagration.
London, Sept. 29—The correspondent of the Chronicle in n late despatch from Tripoli says:
All busin?ss here has stopped, ami
grent excitement piwails. The Turkish steamer, Dcrnn, entered the
harbor within view of thc whole fleet,
which apparently had heen wntching
h°r lor many miles. She landed one
hundred soldiers, several boxes of
ammunition and rifles. It is expected the tle.'t will now take steps to
occupy the place. At any moment
the fleet could have stopped the Der-
na hut refused.
The news spread like wildfire. Turkish soldiers swarmr.l about tlie
harbor, yellinir threats against Italy
mid Italians. The latter arc in mo
mentury (ear of attack.
Turin, Sept. 29—The Con-rie
D'ltaliu says Italy has received an
unsatisfactory reply from Turkey nnd
will answer with a more hostile note
The Corriere D'ltulia says the land
ing ol men and ammunition at Trl
poii by the Turkish steamer Derna,
constitutes a casus belli. The Italian
government, thc |mper says, was awaiting such an act before proceeding
to the occupation ol that province.
Tans, Sept. 29—According to the
inlonnation current in diplomatic clr
ele-; in Paris today, Italy's second
not*.' to Turkey presented on Tuesday
was couched in much more impera
tivc terms than that ol Sunday. The
note ordered the Ottoman government not to send reinfincrements to
Tripoli. Italy dcniaivlml the right to
occupy Tripoli by military fnrre. II
this right is not conceded, Italy will
take measures looking to such occupation by this morning at tin' lat*st
At the same time Ituly engages to
respert the sovereignty ot the Sultnn
which implies the establishment of
an administration analoguous to
tbat whioh Austria established over
Bosnia and Herzegovina, lt is afflrm-
nd in certain quarters that Turkey
will accept the injunction, addressed
to her.
Vienna, Sept. 29—The Niew FMrrere
Posse learna Irom an official Turkish
source that the Porte is determined
to concede no political privileges In
Tripoli and will regard nn Italian
landing as n casus belli.

held the position of organist and
choirmaster at the parish church,
Barnard Castle, Durham, and at
St. James church, Darlington for sev

several musical societies and is thc
composer of considerable church aud
organ music. In 1908 Mr. Watson
came to Calgary and in that year act
ed as adjudicator at th» Southern
Alberta Musical Festival. He has
since held the position of choirmast-
r and organist at Kclownn and Vernon, and was conductor and director
of the Kelowua Musical and Dramatic Society.
Mr. Watson expects to move to
Revelstoke about the 17th of October

pianoforte, organ and voice production. In addition to the advanced
classes he will start an elementary

Prompted b.v th? too trociuant in
stances of the disablement of locomo
tlve engineers, either by accldenl
sickness or suldm death, a cores
pondent suggests that all locomo
tives should be equipped with some
lorm of atftomatlc "safety throttle,'
similar in its action to the control
levers mi the motors of the N<",v
York and Boston subways, which ail
tomatically rut ofl the power thc instant that the pressure ot the drlv -
mi's hand is removed.
Some years ago, the editor rode in
the cab of one of tbe then newly in
stunted 18-bonr trains to Ohlcago,
when b>' covered some 1,500 miles o!
the round trip in the locomotive cab.
Ii,' noticed that generally, an.l partli
ularly at night, the engineer would
keep one hand upon the throttle, the
other upon the air brake lever. Ar.
emergency stop was made by the
instant operation ot these two levers
It would, ol course, lie possible by
means ot some source of powvr, such
as a pneumatically- controlled pis
ton. to shut off the steam and apply the brakes at the instant that
the emin.er's hand dropped from
th.* throttle, either through accldenl
or death. The objection to such an
arrani-emtnt would lie that there are
times when he must remove his hand
trom the throttle, as for instance
when it is necessary to sand the rails
or open the cylinder cocks. On tlu
other bund, the safety stop misht be
so arrang-e.l that it could be temporarily locked in position at th?
will of the engin.fr. In these days of
huee boilers and large fire boxes, it
becomes increasingly difficult for the
fireman io supplement the watchfulness of the engineer. Locomotive en-
t-.neers as a body would welcome, we
believe, any practicable safeguard of
this character, and it would materially add to the satety ot railroad
travel—.Scientific American.

one ot th,- most remarkable exhibitions of choral singing ever beard

organizations have visited Canada in

easily excelled any ot them, not merely in the perfection of their chorus
singing, bin in their solo work as
well. Tlie Choir in the ens.-mhle
work sang with the precise perfection
of an organ under a master's touch,
every section nicely balanced, and
the voices carefully selected so that
they blended as though all part ot

The Vital Issues by Uncle Walt
I do not care a, tinker's cuss about
those vital things, concerning whicli
the statesmen luss and crow and
Hap their wings. I saw my little pile
ot wood, and pay up as I go, and
all the world's serene and good and
I am shy ol woe. II men would cease
to (ret so hard o'er public ills and
crimes, and tinker round their own
back yard, they'd have much better
times. It is a narrow, selfish view—
ol course, that's understood— but
folks who're always in a stew don't
seem to do mueh good. I think that
I do jtiRt as much to help the world
along vtltea I mow weeds und sing a
Dutch or Alpine yodling, song. I do
as much when I produce my little
roll ol bills, und pay the milkman for
bis juice, tbe druggist lor his pills.
I've often noticed that bhe men who
paw the air and bawl, are slow at
digging up the yen when bill collectors call. I'll let the nation go its
Knit, I'll simply let it slide; 1
couldn't keep the blamed thing
straight, no odds how hard I tried;
I'll let the statesmen blow the loam
Irom lips that never rest, and I'll
just tinker round at home, and do
my little best.

lumbering and  manufacturing   trade
of      Revelstoke  anil  district   is  of    a ,
magnitude almost beyond enmpt ehen-1
laion. Sawmills were operated at
Revelstoke by the Bowmen Lumber
company, and Revelstoke Sawmill Co
at Arrowhead by the Arrow Lakes
Lumber company;  at   Comaplix      by
j the Bowman Lumber company; at
Pingston Creek hy the Gibbons Lumber company;  at Wigwam    by      the
[ i.ce I.umber company; at. Three Valley  hy the    Mundy Lumber company;
|ut Taft by the Hood Lumber company; at Atmis. near Sicamous, by
the Sovereign Lumber company; at
chase by the Adams River Lumber
company; al Qerrard by the Canadian
Timber anil Sawmill company; nnd
at Nakusp hy the Quance Lumber
company. The Industry gives em-
ploym. nt  to 4,iino  men.
Recently several ol these companies
haw consolidated and formed into
one large company under the name
of the Dominion Sawmills and Lumber company. They have a capital
of $10,000,000 and have I,mil an ex-
a. nsive and beautiful office building
at Revelstoke which Will be thcic
bead Office. Tins company controls
billions of feet of standing timber in
the district.
Several other nulls iu the vicinity
are   projected.
The varieties of timber found in
the locality are cedar, fir, pine, hem
lock an,l  spruce.
The Uniw Lakes afli rd an excel
lent basin for the gathering and mil
ling of the logs cut on the Columbia
river and its tributaries. The Oo
lumbia Itself Is a large navigable
river running through 300 miles ol
timbered ai a, and lends Itself ad
mirably to the driving and handling
ol the Immense timber product tributary to its shores and many branch
es. The Shuswap Lakes serve a
similar purpose fin* the lar.:*' t mber
areas on Eagle river, A lam r ver
Seymour      river    and    many
and on the shores of these lakes are
many sites well suited to milling and
tlle shipment of lumber over the railway lines connecting with those two
chains of lakes.
The promised construction at an
early date of branches of the Canadian Northern Railway to tap both
these great basin., will result in thc
desired competitive rates to thc
prairie being obtain.'d and in hives
o.' industry being established along
these lakes which will afford home
markets for tha produce from the
fruit nnd  farm lands in  the  vicinity.
The proximity of these large timber areas to the great prairies of
Canada assures an ample supply of
building material for the thousands
who are crowding info our Northwest
and that immigration has already
stimulated the demand for our lumber, with the result that timber
lands are in great demand and prices
are  rapidly  advancing.
The system of lire guarding of the
forests now adopted by both the
Dominion and provincial govern -
ments and the legislation, recently
pass,'.I, which provides for perpetuity
of titie so long as merchantable tim,
lor remains on the land, have already
placed our timher lands on a solid
Investment basis and our wealthy
American neighbors as well as English investors are now busily en-
gaged   In  buying up oiu* timber Ian,Is.
Revelstoke, being the geographical
centre of all this timlier area, will
derive the chief benefit from the
manufacture and shipment of all these
timber products, and la destined to
Ic,,,me a large centre of population
in.I   wealth.
