Small Army of Men Will be
Employed Here in Addition
to Regular Employees
There are big things in tho alt tor
Revelstoke trom more sources than
ono. In those columns sunn' time
agowe tui.i ..I from    .>ij ...i. ii      to
.i.,; ,i n laid mm*Ii' by the C. P. K.
for Improvements ot the mountain
suction. A prominent railroad official has brought the mattei closer tu
home by informing thc Mall-Herald
that there is to he a great deal ol
money spent right here in the Revel
Btoko yards. "There will he all the
money spent here that we can lind
the men to do the work for," Baid
he, "and Kevelstoke yards will he
a busy  place."
Amu|ig the proposed improvements
will he the extension of the yards to
the east, as at present they are found
to he altogether too small for thj
amount of work required to be don.'
there. "We cannot go west," be
said, "or we will butt into the ciiy,
so wo will have to go east." Just
what the amount of the extensions
arc or what they will cost has not
yet been ascertained, but it is believed there will he a meeting of the
mechanical men of the road hero on
May lai, when all the plans will lie
under consideration. These it is
believed  are already made out.
Then too, it is proposed to raisj
the yard trackagc at least two feet,
as at present they are found altogether too low, What this will cost
or how many men will be required
has not been ascertain;.-.!, but it is
ijuitc certain the cost will run well
into the thousands and a pretty good
army of men required for the work.
District Engineer, Here on Saturday, Decided on Location
Capt. Lindsay, district engineer Ior
the Provincial government, was in
the city over Sunday, looking to the
welfare of the R.M.R's, and as a result of his visit it is quite probable
that the local regiment of the R. M.
R.'s will  get a new rifle range.
Will the local company get this
range was asked Capt.  Lindsay?
"Ob, yes; I have no doubt aboul
that," he replied.
Where will it be he was asked?
"Ob well, perhaps it would not be
well to make any definite statement
as to its location, but we have almost definitely decided upon it."
Capt. Lindsay also looked over the
drill hall and decided that the iron
railings on the roof which had been
torn away by the winter's snows,
must l>e repaired at once, and this
will  be done.
Mr. Gordon is Agent tor the
King George Coronation Fund
AU the Georges, and Marys too for
that matter, in this constituency will
be given a chance to contribute tu
the King George -Coronation fund,
as Mr. Robt. (iordon has been nppointed agent for that fund in this
riding. In fact every government
agent In every riding is empowered
to accept donations for this fund.
While Mr. Gordon's commission
simply state's that he is to accept
donations Irom thc Georges, still lie
stalls be is Hot averse to collecting
from the Marys if they are loyal
enough to come forward with their
free gilts. Sums of [rom live cents
up  will   be  accepted.
Pupils ot Mrs. H. McKinney
Perform Before Large Audience
Quite a large audience tumid out
last night iu Selkirk ball to tbe
Schuman elub concert given by lh'
pupils ot Mrs. Herman McKinney and
found it decidedly worth their while.
The little' embryo musicians, varying
*,n gnuIrs Iron) those who had been
tickling the ivory keys for years to
those who have practically just start
ed, all did remarkably Well, ami
showed just what diligent training
mi i careful application can do. Little
tots whose tiny legs strut bed themselves   vainly     io   reach the pedals
smilingly      played  their  little  pieces,
aud in turn gave way to other tiny
tots, while scattcrcd here and thoro
throughout the program were a number of selections hy advanced pupils
which were splendidly executed.
In touch, style, accentuation nnd
expression nil the pertormers Bhowed
considerable aptness, some of course
more thnn others, according to torn
porament, and on the whole tho pro
gr„in was very interesting ami entertaining.
Ii would lie invidious to especially
mention nny one of the pupils who
performed, much as the Mall Hci'iiM
Would like to, owing to the various
gradations of training of tho large,
class.      However,   there,  woro      ninny
of the   pupils of    whom tins paper
would like lo say much.
The ba.11 was very niceh decorated
for the occasion.

Court of Revision has Thirty-five
Kicks to Deal With—Some
Chopped in Two
No less than thirty-live kicks greeted the. Court of Revision on the As-
sesstaetll Rolls which met in the
city hall last night, un.l ns a result
of thnt. body's work Hie assessment
of the city was reduced practically
The work of adjusting these differences was somewhat todlOUS, but, in
terspersed with various little differ -
dices ol opinion its the meeting vies,
its monotony wns somewhat, relieved.
Of these thirty-live kicks only eleven
were considered anyways serious nu I
some liberal reductions were na.le,
while tlie other 24 will just havo lo
divvy up to the amount of the original nssessment.
The biggest reduction granted was
on the Molsons Bank building which
Mr. Assessor said was worth IIS.JOO
for assessment purposes. The Molsons
Ban1*; objected and Mr. Assessor balked down to the extent of $1500. This
was the lgrgest reduction in amount
but in proportion to the original assessment there was one bigger, l'hat
was on old St. Andrew's ih'irch,
which was originally assessed nl
$2,000, but ths kick came aud tho
ollicial axe fell chopping that assessment clean through the middle, so
that now it stands at $1,000.
Here are thc results of the kicks
nnd  the Court of Revision:
Horace Manning's store and building reduced from $2,500  to ll OoO.
Robert (Iordon, 'lots 1 a'ld 2, buck
35,  from $2500 to $2,1511.
Frank Bourne, lot 7, block 23, ttom
$:»00 to $1500.
Mrs. K. G. Bourne, house at il build
ing, from $2,000 to $1,800.
Mrs. Frank Bourne, lots 5 and 6,
block 43, from $3,C00 to $2,500.
Old St. Andrew's Presbyterian
church, from $2,000 to $1,000.
C. P. R. lire hose building from
$1,500  to  $1,200.
MolBons Bank building from $1S,-
000 to $16,500.
P. Burns & Co., n 5 ft., 16, 17 and
!'■'. block 24, from $1,600 to $500.
A. F. I.un.leH's house from $:,2d0
to $1,000.
Mrs. Ma.ldock kicked on a certain
building whicli was assessed too high.
Court decided that it should bc exempt if torn down.
Reported They Will be Called for
to be in May 23rd
Although no official confirmation "f
the report hns yet hcen received, it.
believed that tenders for the new
Provincial Court House will be called for to bc in by May 23rd, nil.I
that the contract for the same will
he lei  June  1st.
According to information nt hnnd,
the new building will approximate tn
cost closer to $100,0*00 than the
$75,000 estimated lor the. building,
and the location will be just a little
to the enst ol the present Innl,lim-.
The plans nre not yet to hand, Imt
the report that the teudcrs will 1)0
called for is indication that the plans
must be prepared and in the hands
of the Provincial Public Works Department. The building, if all reports are true, will bc one of the
best of its kind in the province as
Mr. Thos. Taylor has been very
careful to see that the plans prepared would ensure in overy way a
structure    that    would     do      ample
justice to the estimated importance of this constituency in his

Sume two or three weeks ago tha
city council ordered a watering cart
to conic from Calgary. Apparently
it has not yet arrived here or at
least it has not yet put in nn appearance on the streets, whicli arc
rapidly becoming literal beds ot dust.
Why this delay? Surely two or

things arc allotted to drag along

end of the year we find ourselves uo
further advanced than at the beginning. Vic were a little sceptical ot

The latest, statesman to give earn-
081 expression to the manliest truth
that the increase of expenditure for
war preparations cannot go on Indefln
itely is Mr. Clemcntel, who in submit
ting the French army estimates in the
Chamber of Deputies gave some lig-
Hi.'s that arrest, attention. During
the past twenty-live years, he said
tue armed pence has laid upon Bur -
ope a burdenof $25,0OO,(H!*,00<h 'i'he
Cost ol the Napoleonic wars in 18081
l.sil*s, according to the army and navy
budgets ot Napoleon, averaged about
$&3,WM>,0<)0 a year, aiid that was the
period of the conqueror's most splendid triumphs and most wholesale de-
-t ruction of human life. Uut for the
coming your of peace the French army estimates alone call for $180,000,-
The net cost to Great Britain
of the wars with revolutionary
France and with Napoleon, from
1793 to 1815, a period of twenty -
two years, was some $4,000,000,001).
Vet in tbc lifteen years to come,
assuming that the i>eace ul Burope
will not be disturbed, Oreat Britain's
expenditures ou preparations for war
w.ll exceed the Uritish war expendi -
lute during the entire period trom
the Reign ol Terror to Waterloo. Tak
nig only the expenditures into ac-
1 count, modern peace is vastly mote
'expensive than old fashioned war. A

To my way of thinking, the Cubs
are one ot the greatest clube baseball seen. Don'1 try to
:' irm an opinion on tins team trom

will make a great showing; but we
canD't consider them pennant eon
tenders. The real test is among the
Biz l bave named,
I Include Brooklyn in the list because I believe this out tit is going to
... big surprise. Dahlen has a
.'.I,; team, a bunch ol good hitters,
and iielders and pitchers. His twirlers
fell down lasi yeai*. and that was
the cause of ihe poor showing. Hut
they should come arouud and the
Dodgers will be a bard team to bent.
Take the entire eight clubs. uud
there isn't one which has not im
proved. The trades made (luting the
winter look beneficial to all parties
concerned and from the close watch 1
have made this spring eacb club is
strengthened wonderfully ■
While the Cubs appear to be the
same great outfit, there aTe others
which are just as formidable, and
ones which will not be a surprise to
me il they win out. line In particu
lar is the Giants, l can remember
when I was In the minora and never
thought of being President of the National League we always considered
McGraw's team in the running.
That's just what wc have to do to
day. McGraw's team is feared by
them all. and it will be the same
this year. But the Giants should lie
a better team this season ihau tbey
were last. The Giants are about on
a par with the Cubs.
Then we have Pittsburg, Cincinnati
and Philadelphia. Pittsburg was a
victim of many tough breaks last
year, which kept it down In the race.
Cincinnati profited by the deal with
the Phillies. So did the Phillies, So
don't think I mean the Reds got the
le, and the new material should
* * it hi Iffith's club.
Besides talking about the pennant
race. I want to add something extra,
and that is, tho National League is
g Ig to pay more respect to the
world - Berles. The owners elected
me to look after their interests, and
that ;- what I am going to do. It is
a great '** •■ to own the world's
championship, and 1 will do all I can
to bring back that title to our league.

Jessie Maclachlan To-Niyht
The Jessie Maclachlan company will
be at thc BJdlson theatre tonight for
oue night only. The Winnipeg Free
Press snys of her latest concert:
The task ol the critic is nn easy
one in handling such n performance
as that provided by Jessie Maclachlan and her company In the Walker
theatre last evening. There is no
trick of metaphor in thc bill board
announcement that she stars "Queen
of Scottish and Gaelic Song." In
that respect she is peerless, but her
histriottlo gills are of lln mean order,
Had she felt disposed to devote the
same time and cultured ellort to the
services of dramatic art that she lias
given to the ballad minstrelsy of
b't' motherland, her success had been
assured e.n.l  no less brilliant.
Thc theatre wns crammed to its
last capacity. A large numlier of
chairs had to be improvised on the
■itaei.'.  nnd  many  belated    applicants
or seats were glad to have per -
mission to stand in thc gallery. I
The program was well selected an.l
included most ol Miss Mnclaihliin's
favorite themes,  whicli she     rendered
n ha own inimitable style to a
breathless stillness, and nnoii the
excited plaudits of the Immense con-,
course ol people, whose eyes wore
rl vetted up, n her. Not a gesture
was nut of plnce and every quip and ,
turn employed In her wonderful interpretation w'as in perfect accord
with the fitness of things an.l were
us,d with the artfulness and untutored freedom ui nature. Said „ little
maid Irom the far east, "Why ,lo
people never tire of listening to that
pomnn's singing,"       Because      her
