license Commissioners Have Very
Important Question to Deal
With and Make a Motion
Whether i,n hotel keeper can refuse
accommodation to a man who is law
abiding an i haa money t.i pay fur
his board mi.I lodging Is the Question
which the police commissioners bed
to *l icldo ai n meet Ing which lliey
held on Wednesday afternoon, They
decided thai he whs in duty bound
to do so .'iii*l any action to the contrary on In* part wouW jeopardize
his license.
Thi'  mattes  was  brought      to      the
attention a' the license commissioners by a letter from Grant Hall, Su-
perlntend-ent of motor power and
cars of the C.P.R. at Winnipeg, in
which he asked the license commissioners to look into a matter where
it was supposed a certain man bad
been Invited to leave an hotel iu the
city despite the fact he bad mon»y
in plenty to lay hi way. As a
matter of fact the action of two hotel proprietors were questioned, Hi
Kin; Edward and the  Union hotels,
The case arose as an aftermath of
the general strike of machinists and
mechanics en the O.P.R. a year or
so as.'o. The man in question whose
presence was apparently not wanted
in the city, was here during that
strike and apparently did not belong
to the union. His presence here was
really most obnoxious to the ma
chinlsts union and accordingly a letter was addressed to tbe holel pro
prietors asking them to refuse him
accommodation. The hotel pi'npn
eioi's explained to the commissioners
that they did not refuse him accommodate n nor did thev ask him to
leave their houses. All they ilid was
simpiy to show the communication to
their guests nnd mention t,, him that
it might save them a good deal of
unpleasantness if he should of his
own free will vacate ihe premises.
This action on the part of the hotel
keepers was reported to Grant Hall,
nnd hj in turn presented the matter
by communication to the chairman
of ilie license commissioners.
The result was that the commissioners decided that no hotel
keeper enn or may refuse accommo
dation to any guest who is able to
pay for it and behaves himself. The
following motion appearing on thfl
Imoks of the commissioners, h ropy
of which was s.nt to all hotel keepers  in   the city explains  itself.:—
"That a bottce be si nt to all llqtl
or license holders In the corporation
that they must on no account refuse any person board and lodging,
wh'ii  surh   person  lias   the   means    of
Paying lor Bame."
That the commissioners in-led wise
ly in the matter goes without saying

With the advent oi spring, tbe soft
balmy weather and tbe budding ot
trees there has ..ome to tbe citizens
a feeling of confidence ami optimism
that tbis coming summer will be one
of the best in the history oi Revel -
stoke. Humors are rile ot a general
activity iu industrial circles. Tbere
are alieady 4*0*0 men at work iu the
mountain division of the. O.P.R. from
Field to Kamloops employed in track
work, and the probabilities are tbat
another small army will be imported
from ihe cast to rush tbe work entailed by tbe expenditure of u million
dollars in the section, while m u
few days a large gang will be put
io work in thc yards to raise thc
level of these and exten.l them further east. Thc preliminary survey ot
ihis work is already underway und
the rumor is current tbat there arc
still bigger things in project around
the c ty m connection with thc C.P.
li. Whether these will materialize or
not is a matter for speculation, of
course, but there is every reason to
believe tbat tbey will, aud that a
vast sum of money will bc turned
loose in this section as a result ol
tbis work. The big deal wbich for
some time has been pending, and in
which Mr. Chas. barnum is thc central figure, is now almost assured,
and this will mean the expenditure ol
a large amount iu the city, while
tbe 1'.'in..-ii.,n Sawmills & Lumber,
Ltd., will soon double their ollice
staff in their new building and pay
therefrom an enormous pay roll.
Real estate dealers report an unprecedented activity in their line and a
demand for lots and houses that it
is impossible to fill. Mr. Trimble,
the government agent for roads and
trails has commenced tbe work a'
spending the $75,000 donated by tbe
Provincial government tor that purpose, the court hoii-e tenders will
soon lie called for aud the contract
let,   while   preparations  are being
made for the erection of a large post
office. Un the top of all this activity it is assured lhat there will bc a
number ol private houses erected in
various parts of the city, consequently merchants and residents are somewhat jubilant over the prospects of
the coming summer. That this feeling of confidence is warranted is
borne out by the recital of facts
■juoted above. With a J75.000 post
office aud a flOO.OOO court bouse In
our midst we are sure getting to be
- me city, and everybody should com
nience to feel that we have outgrown
tillage conditions, and recognizing
this the Mail-Herald feels it an opportune time to put in a idea in its
own behalf.
In the past there has been no public opinion not associated with in-
lividuala, If a paper ventured to
cruize anything done municipally, it
was forthwith charged with haviug
some feeling against the person who
it or was responsible for it. If
;t ventured to recommend anything,
a lot of people, who never originated
anything in the.r lives nut trouble,
would explain tbe paper's activity by
charging it with a desire to serve
some interest peis-onal to tbe proprietors of the paper or some of their
friends. If the action of the city
council was criticized next moiuing a
whole lot of people would have call-
ed in oi telephoned up to say tbat it
is mighty pool encouragement for
anyone to devote his att.-ution to
the aiTairs of th- city if his breakfast is going to be spoiled by hav-
lag tbingi -H 1 about him. If the

Port Mann
The New
C. n. n.
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 property around which"lots will be selling 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.

The executive committee of the Y.
M.C.A. baseball club met Thursday
evening, April 20th. Many items of
importance were discussed, ground
rules were adopted, and the following
preliminary schedule wns drawn up,
As there are only three teams entered in the league this year the committee thought it l>est to arrange a
preliminary schedule for the month of
May. Perhaps then the other fans
who a'* not signed up with any other team- can get together and organ
ize a fourth team. The committee
felt sure that there were enough ba-sc
ball men in Revelstoke to get four
teams for the league.
As an inducement to eneoiirngc the
baseball men to play better ball an.l
to work harder at the game, the committee has interested -ome of our
generous business friends to put up
prizes for tha best fielding average,
the best batting average, and t'ic
highest number of bases made durin;
the season. The donuprs of thes?
prizes and the nature of the same
will l e published lnier. The management has gone to considerable ex -
pense to put the ball field in the best
of condition. To raise funds for
this the members of the ball club
will probably put on nn entertain -
ment. The Intermediate league will
be organized Monday evening, April
24th. All members of the Public
School baseball team, the J. B. 0.
team and any other yot ns; mm that
will play intermediate ball sh mid
lie at this meeting.
The preliminary schedule is as fol -
May 1—Intermediates v. Bus n ss
May 3—Businessmen v. Corley's
May  *—Businessmen    v.     Intermed
May S—Businessmen V. lnetrmcd-

Good Performance under Auspices of St. Peter's Church
The indomitable efforts of Mrs. Mc-
Vity to bring to proUciency the large
numlier ol amateurs who took part
in the program at her concert last
uiitht were rewarded by a house averaging .lose to JI"'" net and what
was more to the satisfaction of Mrs.
MeVity a thoroughly good performance In almost every particular where
her  train.n*-  was  in  cvidenoei
There  were  of  course portions      of
the program  that  might have been a
lis*   po Qtment  to  the conductor  but
these      were  occasioned  more  by  the
lack of intloisia-sm on the part uf tbc
participants  rather  than  any  lack  ol
part ol Mrs. MeVity.
To    begin      with   everybody   knows
what «  great amount of trouble and
patience    -  reqniied  to  bring to any
prulirirncy   a  crowd      of

this chorus.
Following tbis   closely was a Bolo
and chorus     by Mr. T. E. L. Taylor
and   six    of      Revelstoke's      popular
I yotniK ladies,  and to say that   each
nrtd all did credit to thc popular oT>-
\ era from which it was taken iH     ac-
I Cording     them     their    due  meed of
' liraise.      Amons the adult  product -
ions on the program this was easily
the best.
. Miss Valeric Cunningham Morris
I and Master C. Lyons may be classed
aB stars in embryo. Little better
Could be desired tlmn tbeir-reflorts in
■singing, dancing and acting in Sail-
ng, Gaily Sailing. These again
were supported by the same sailor
costumed   chorus.
Master Glen Urquhart gave a smart
little recitation entitled "The Ten
Wonders of Earth," but owing to
the wretched acoustic properties of
the theatre his voice was hardly audible in all parts of the house.
The Little l'icaninnics, Miss Itila
Tomlinson and Master .lames Bourne
are remarkably clever children and
the fact of the most hearty encore ,,[
the cven'.ng, is evidence that they
treated their subject as it should bc
lone. It. was indeed very clever nnd
worthy uf much more space than we
are able to glvo it, owing to the
crowded  condition  of our  pages.
Nothing better in rythm of motion
has ever ltccn exhibited in Revelstoke
than the dancing ot MiBS Boris MeCarter as the Spirit 0f Spriug in the
Fairy Dances. This little lady baB
the poetry of motion in her very
nature, and the beautiful features,
and becoming attire gave her truly
the appearance of a little fairy. Thc
chorus were all as proficient as its
Thrusting Glory on the R. M. U.,
was badly marred tor two or ihree
reasons. First the lack 0f sutticient
collective training was shown, second the soloist Mrs. Su,uarebriggs,
owing to a severe cold found it impossible to perform her part, and
third the absurd attempt of several
of the male members to burlesque the
playlet. Tbc chorus is from a Popular comic opera which is often successfully attempted hy amateurs and
could be considerably better done
than it was last night.
Mr. Martin's vocal solos were also
badly marred by the acoustic properties of the theatre and thc fact of
his selections not being saitable to
his voice in a theatre of that aixc.
Mr. Burbidge elicited hearty encores for his several selections and
his melodramatic monologue of "An
Every Day Life Scene in London,"
was in every way cleverly done.
After the concert Mrs. MeVity was
presented with a beautiful cut glass
cake plate, and the evening w0und up
with a dance.
Edmonton, April 11.—From Edmonton to Bclton Centre, near Sher -
hrooke, Quebec, was the pbeuomtnal
journey made by a thoroughbred collie dog, belonging to A. Brill of Edmonton. The dog was brought by
Brill from the eaat and a month after disappeared, nothing being heard
of it for sixteen months. Then be
reappeared at the residence ot his
master's father, Rev. D. Brill of Bolton Centre, running to thc yard
wagging his tail. Vetcrinaries say
thc dog made his trip by instinct, occurrences which nic not unprecedented
