In the history ol every city there
arrives a time when the regulation
ut stieet trafric. especially ot auto-
tnohiles, 1-ecomes a matter ut Import
ancv to the general public; the letter
Irom Kev. Calder published iu this
issue, is an evidence that such a
t.me has now arrived in the Oity ot
Revelstoke.
There is no harm in thc autoiuul'il'
itsell, it it- merely a machine under
control of ns driver, the days when
legislation or by-law were directed
at the instrument, instead ol at thc
nia6ter, in an endeavor to cope with
the evil.** of Bpeed maniacs and road
hogs have passed away, almost universally the responsibility for acci -
dent is now placed on the shoulders
ot the personally, instead of merely
blaming  the  instrument.
The automobile ns un instrument,
and example ol progress has come,
and cotn-t to stay, it only remain*
therefore for the public to imtigato
as far as possible the admitted in
conveniences which it has brought in
its tram.
In the eye* of the common law, the
humble  ;>edestr.aii  still  p
right to the road.   The driver     and
owner of  an automobile whuh    runs
in  a  fair  manner—down   First  street
its   well   a-   lower      town   beyond   the
City hotel, the condition ol the road
this    windy     weather is obnoxious.
Why should the street spriukler be ever
confined to Certain part- of 1 he city
when all sections of the corporation
arc paying taxes alike, is a cotinun-
drum, Do the city fathers think or
what excuse can they mnke for favoring one particular part of the cily
in  the  mntter  of street  sprinkling.
II would be much better to cut this
water wagon out all together rather
than hnvo it used as nt present. Unless something is done in the imined
iate future or some good reason as -
signed by some one in authority for
this one sided piece ol municipal
work, lt is the intention of the
writer to carry this matter further,
and if necessary Iiave an indignation

Thanking vou for this space, 1 am

REVELSTOKE
AND PANAMA
Revelstoke the Wheat Port for
Transhipmen of Prairie Grain
via Columbia River and Panama to the Markets of the
World
(Contributed.)
Possibly it seems absurd for a
small place like Hevelstoke, B. C,
situated inland between mountains,
of uo present commercial importance
comparatively, and in the same sense
of insigniliixint population, to speak
of itself as one of the places, and
one of tbe ports, which will be and
should be, influenced by thc opening
of the Panama Canal. Such a present insigniticant competitor must arouse laughter nnd scoffing no doubt,
from the great I'acilic ocean ports,
which North and South, are strenuously competing for the advantages
thiB new trade route suggests to
them, there is one notable BXOnptlon
to i hiB list of probable scoffers how-
anil that, is Portland, Ol'ugan,
the argument to be advanced in this
the article to be advanced i.i this
s-tries of articles is at all logical, tSc
foresight of that city, already the
greatest wheal shipping port on tha
I'acilic, will be most clearly understood  aud  appreciated.
When one learns that Pacific ocean
ports preparations for Panama traf-
tic now total over $100,1)00,01)11, or
about one-third of thc cost of the
big ditch itself, one cannot help hue
ask if such enterprise is legitimate
expectation of results, if it is sane
as well ns sanguine? There is no
doubt of it. The possibilities ot
Western shipment to world markets
via Panama, is not appreciably nuas
lired even by this hug*? sum uow invested  for iis preparation.
When one considers that this canal
will bring the ports of Great Britain
and Europe nearly as close to those
of the Pacific as to those of the Atlantic, and several thousand miles
nearer together for purely Pacific ocean trade, its advantages to thc lat
ter arc easily seen. But when it is
added that the great produce belts
of the Western hemisphere, all situate
on its Western fringe, are thereby
brought nearer the old world ports
than by thc older nuites, and neater
the shipping point for water carriage
thereto, the possibilities of Panama
to the Pacific, are more easily seen.
No longer will thc Western produce
be carried Eastwards thousands of
miles to reach the ocean, hundreds
will la- substituted instead; why,
speaking of Canada, it will bc nearer for all the country west of say
Medicine Hat, to ship to Vancouver
than to Fort William. Thc long haul
handicap toWestsrn produce will no
longer penalise Its output, the short
and year round route I" open water
must take its place, truffle follows,
nn the night lbe dav. the lines of
least resistance and short distance.
and .ii these governing prinriplet lies
the logic "f preparations foi Pana
ma "ii ihe Pacific,
Then,  think of  tli" western  country
da ly,   hourly  recruiting  its  popula .
'mm all  tn.it  le enterprising in

What has all this to do with "Itevelstoke and Panama," the title of
this article? An endeavor will he

GOOD BUYING IN REVELSTOKE PROPERTY
Real Estate is most reasonable just now in Rovelstoke and for the shrewd
investor there is no time like the present to secure a home, a few residential
lots or a few acres for market gardening, as the railaoad development promised during the coming year will insure a very large increase in property
values.
