President Canadian Pacific Railway Company Makes Announcement Guaranteeing Commencement Double-Tracking Thru
Revelstoke This Year.—Issuing of Securities Justified hy
Vast Extensions on Part of C. P. Railway.
New York, Feb. 7—Sir Thomas
Bbaughneasy president of the Oanad -
ian Pacilic, talked of thc railroad over which h' presides. He said: "We
have decided pretty fully on our new
work on the western division for the
present calendar y.ar. This will intrude finishing up of so ue three huit-
I'ri-d milcH of new line and lh- build-
inir o.'  live hundred miles in addition.
"Th" new work this year on our
Western division will include also the
liuildin; of a tunnel five miles long
sit the foot o; the Selkirk mountains.
I suppose ihat P'o;de tbin'c wc are
■pending an enormous amount of money Inasmuch as we have made rather
frequent Issues of securities. When it
^is known lhn' we are building six or
eight enormous ocean-going vessels,
developing our telegraph Bystem rap-
i.lly. in addition to enlarging our rail
load facilities proper, it will not be
difficult to understand that very largo
amount of mon'y is in constant demand."
This   information  from  New   York,
following the important announce -
ment recntly made by Mr. Uury, to
the effect that the eminent N.Y. En •
gin>"er had approved the plans for
double tracking the C.P.Ry. from Cal
gary to the coast, and the tunnelling
of the .Selkirk Mountains as nn integ-
inl portion of the scheme, must he
accepted as finally settling the lines
nlonj whi'h the great Tram Canatl -
ian Transportation Company intend
to model their Western Traffic ai range
It is expected that in the n'ar future, definite arrangements fo.' actual
commencement of the work on the
great tunnel will be available for publication. The estimated cost o." the
job has been variously placed at from
$0,000,000 to $10,000,000, at Ipast seventy per cent of which will fie disbursed in wages. The work is evpectel
to ta''.c some four years to complete,
ami means the constant employment
at both ends, for drilling will proceed
simultaneoisly on each side of the
mountains, of a force numbering     at
least 1200 laborers, many of whom
will be skilled mechanics and machine
rock drill men, as it is the intention of
the compnny to utilize th' very latest machinery and apparatus on this
one of the most gigantic tunnelling
enterprises e.rr undertaken on our
North Ameri an continent.
Ths work will indeed be a job of
such magnitude that special arrangements will be made with the contracting firm who will supervise the actual construction, and the Hnan.'ial resources of the C.P.H. will be brought
into play to provide the necessary
funds most of which must he paid out
in the form of wages before the eon-
tract can be actually completed.
The working out in practice of the
various dillicult Ies of this gigantic engineering task will be watched with
interest by engineers and railroad buil
ders everywhere, and will mark the
lateat and most costly attempt to
overcome the obstacles of mounlan
railroiding in the history of Western

to voi'-e certain complaints in connection with school matters.
Mayor Kilpatrick—Tho matter of the.
sewerage will be investigated, and wo
will communicate with you by letter.
As regards the schools, that comes

you are referred. Mrs. Stacey thanked the Mayor and council and with -

ing the estimates.
Deputation thanked the coun.il and
Aid. MeKinnon—As regards th; estimates; before we ean do anything
with the finances, we must have some
idea of what the assessment is going
to bo, and the amount which is available. I think it would be a good idea
if something was done with the assess
ments before we are asked to Jo any
thing with the estimates.
We have to work along the lines of
the amount we have to handle, not'
what we would like to spend, our estimates for expenditures must be gov-
anted by our probable income, wbich
seems to turn upon the assessments,   j
Mayor T. Kilpatrick—I think we
should meet again on Tuesday night

while tbe approaches are 300 ft. long.
It is 22 feet above low water and is !
a fine piece of work.

Gordon Nellis Shoots Him-;
self Thru Head With 38
Calibre Revolver.-- Body",
Discovered by Young Wife
Shortly After Tragedy.—
Brought to Revelstoke for
The usra'ly quiet little village o!
L'ealon, R.C., a fruit growing centre.
and summer pleasure resort, some forty miles distant from Revelstoke, along the beautiful Arrow lakes, was
the scene of a terrible tragedy on
Monday last, when Wr. Gordon Nellis
one of the two brothers proprietors oi
the Beaton hotel, committed suicide,
f.y shooting himself with a 38 calibre
The deed is supposed to have o-.
curred early on the Monday afternoon
No one witnessed the Bhooting. About
3 p.m. that afternoon, Mrs. Nellis,
wife of the de.eased, went into the
dwelling house dining room, and found
the body of her husband lying on tho
floor, with a 33 calibre revolver fai
len on the ground alongside. A bullet
fired at point blank range had passad
right through ihe head, and lodged in
tho wall of the room, and denth must
bave been instantaneous.
Immediately upon this shocking dis-
tovory, Coroner Dr. J. H. Hamilton,
of Revelstoke was hastily wired for,
rend in company with Mr. R. Howson
undertaker, protwded at once to tho
On arriving at Beaton, a coroner's
jury consisting of Foreman G. Sutherland, and Messrs. D. Fraaer, J.
Stanhope, J.H. Young, J. MeCormie,
and H. Burr, were empannelled and
a thorough investigation into all the
circumstances was beld.
There was very little evidence to bo
obtained. Mrs. Nellis 'who was out of
the house at the time tbe shooting is
supposed to have taken place, wasex-
amined, and several other witnesses,
whom it was hoped would be able to
throw Fonif light on the matter.
It was elucidated that for some few
days pa^t. Mr. Nelles had been drinking, but not very heavily, and he had
been beard to say in a muttered manner that "Ho would end it all" aud
lhat hc "mighl have to be carritsl
ont" however, unfortunately, very little notice was taken of this, it being
thought that dereased was simply feel
ing blue and fed up with the long winter, and the lonliness of life at such
a small out of the world place as
The jury finally brought in a   clear
verdict that "Mr.  G.  Nellis of Beaton
committed     suicide by shooting him-'
self through the head."
Tho remains were subsequently then
brought to Revelstoke for interment,
and the funeral took place on Friday
in the presence of the sorrowing wife,
and a few intimate friends. .
A very sad feature of the ease, ls
that deceased was only married a few
months ago, at Revelstoke, and then
took np bis permanent residence with
hie bride at Beaton.
Deceased was ft native of    Ontario,
and had resided In tbe west principally in British Columbia and the Trout
Lake district, for lho past nine years. I
He wai only twenty-five years of age. j
Alderman O.W Abrahamson, who<e
proposed building bylaw is now before
the city couneil. was only Just in timo
for the Spring rush wiih his measure
intended to provide th t Revel to'.o,
in Iiii' with all other progressive western cities, shall possess available un 1
reliable permanent statistics as to the
yearly progress made with the nect -
ion of all kinds of buildings, Includ -
ing business and residential pioperty,
within the cily limits.
The legislation is a l:ngthy a fair,
culled largely from thc bylaws of other B.C. cities and provides for the pay
ment of a registration fee and the appointment of a qualitied inspector,
whose duties will consist of seeing
that all the provisions of the bylaw
are properly observed by the erectors
of buildings in the Capital of Cana -
da's Alps, from lho date of same bo-
i omingeffective.
That the Building Inspector will
not have an idle time during the coming spring, is demonstrated by the
large number of n'W buildings fo:
wh.ch permits have aiieady been applied or will Bhortly lie filed at tbe
City Hall.
Foremost among these figures the
new government post office and lands
department building, for which a sum
of $50,000 on account of preliminary
construction to be disbursed this year
is pro.ided in the Dominion govern -
ment estimates brought down at Ottawa for the yi ar 1913. This will pro
bably be erected upon the Bite already
secured by the previous Ottawa al-
ministration and is expected to cost
in tho neighborhood of $100,000. Plans
and specifications are now being prepared, and excavation work will com
mence on or about the first of May.
Next in order of importan -e in the
realms of building activity for the
coming spring, must bo numbered the
Guy Barber Block, to be erected on
property secured last year expressly
for this purpose. The whole Blo-k
will cost in the neighborhood of $2.".-
000 and be a handsome re.inforced con
crete structure, with ornamental front
Portland stone fini-h facings the
ground floor will be occupied by the'
Barber Jewellery and Wati-hmaking,
and repairing parlors, and the interior finish will be of thnt high class
nccessi'tali-d by th" re-juironv-nts ol
the business, which is one of the oM-
eet established and most BUecessful
diamond, Jewellery nnd watchmakers
emporiums in the whole Interior of
British Columlria. It is a matter
worthy of not", lhat Mr. Barl.er, a
pioneer busins-unan of RsrslStoke, i-
willing, after fifteen years of cxper -
iefioe, to Invest such a large sum of
money in building a block of this description in his home town.
The upper stories of the new building will be occupied by modern office
suits, for wbich there is a very great
demand ln the city at tho present
There is probably no city in British
Columbia, whi.-h boasts for its size,
the possession of so mnny flourishing,
wealthy and powerful Fraternal organizations, as have tbeir homes in
this city of Revelstoke. Foremost am
ong these, a landmark among the hon-.
or.sl institutions of our city, stands
the Selkirk Hall I.O.O.F., claiming
the largest membership of any Individual lodge at present existing in Revelstoke. Some years ago, the Oddfellows erected a compact hall and lodge
room known far and wide as "Old Sel
kirk Hall" it being Justly named after the parent organisation, although
it was from <he outset, very    largely
us. .1 by other Fraternal societies for
busln s-i and open meetings. This
bu I.ling ba- for many years been tha
home of th' far famed old "Revelstoke Goat" upon whicli many a trera
bling no.'itiaie has safely rid len thru
the dread iniiiary rites into tlie full fel
lowship of his cho-in lod e. With
the pi ogres* of the town, the old hall
has become far 100 cramped for the
purposes which it is intende-d to fill,
some months ago the ledge acting Un
del pressure from o h.er lo.igi s all being united in the desire for letter quarters purchased an adjoining lot and
plans are now under way forth' tearing down of the old building, ,• nd the
erection of a grand n W, complete
lodge hall, toio t in tbe neighborhood of $25,OC0.
The building, we un.l rstand, will
contain a great assembly and dance
floor, and adciuately titted committee
rooms, whilst an upper floor will be
divided into club roo n- anl s i>all£r
meeting places, for the various associations expected to make constant use

Mayor T. Kilpatrick returned from
victoria in Monday last, witb absolute piomise fion the Provincial gev-
emment, thai a very substantial
grant wojid te made towards th^
building of th,; new high - -hc*>l, which
is to be erected in Revelstoke this
Spring. A bylaw for some $20,(40 to
complete tbc balance of tho ati.o.mt
tequirel, will shortly be put before
the ratepayers, and doui.tless will be
endors-d  by a large ma.ority.
The total eo^t of tho buildings and
fittings issjpjo-cd to be around the
$70,000 mark, anl tbe school in addition to undertaking instruction in the
usual high s. hool course, will provide
for Domestic S.ience courses, and a
complete eommercial course, includmg
shorthand and typewriting, bookkeeping and business correspondence.
The educational facilities premised
by such an institution Bre badly needed right today in Revelstoke, where
larenta are now fa'-ed wi.h :he necessity of sending th-ir children, and in-
e-id<ntally their money, out of town.
The n?w high school when completed,
will fill A ac ided want, and will go

In a I.iii ion to the foregoing a large
number of new and substantial dwelling bouses will be built this Spring
and Summer. Our growing popula -
tion must have, and demands, new
.lass of citizens who are making Revelstoke tbeir permanent home.
All the* erection* will come under

The art. and science of landscape
gardening, for here wo have both art
and scicnoe combined, is of paramount
importance to overy land owner whether to a humble city or town lot,
large estate, or the farm. The homo
surroundings can be vastly improved
and values enhanced by a judicious expenditure in landscape work, yielding
a hundred fold in actual value bt sides
affording a pleasure to the possessor
and the public generally that cannot
be estimated in dollars and cents.
Every boautlfler of his grounds is a
public benefactor.
The buildings may be ever so plain
and even homely, yet with the ground
surrounding them nicely laid out and
cared Ior. they are made charming; on
the other hand n building ever ho fine
if sin rounded by illy designed and
kept grounds, the effect is most unpleasant. It is manifest therefore,
ihat if we would have a really beautiful home we must pay attention to
its environment by a correct application of the means and material called
for in the art of laying outgrounda,
and while this fact is no obvious, yet
how often do we see this important
work entrusted to those without taste
and having little, if any, experience
In this very important work of lands' ape gardening.
Probably no firm in B.C. have gone
to the same length of specializing   in
landscape     gardening as    the famous]

Victoria, B.C., Feb. 7—Premier McBride has not had any offloial com -
munication with any official railway
man regarding the extending of the
Pacific Eastern railway north to Alaska oi io 'he south for a connection
wiih Mexico.
The Pacitic Great Eastern is now
looking for a route iuto the Peace
River country and next year the question of lis extension in this direction
may 1 e taken up.
lt is within the realm of possibility
that when tbe Panama canal is opened lo traffic conneetion may be made
by the Pacitic Great Eastern wi'brail
ways to the south.
ed bis opinion of one sample that lay
I eforo him.
"It is on the basis of palmoll, only
it is not half so clean."
"This condition of affairs, lhe gene-
lal Hooding of the western market
with this class of stuff is simply a
lesson showing the necessity of moro
mixed farming," he continued. "It is
an absolute shame that figures show
that the production of vegetables and
other foodstuffs from the farm we're
practically ihe same in 1912 as they
were in 1908.
"Wholesale firms in the east are able
to flood the louniry around herewith
this imitation product, simply be-
cause there is no standard locally produced by which it could be judged."

Now, however, the Montreal syndicate has turned its eyes to British Co

Gurd, a solicitor at Cranbrook, secured the title to a number of claims in

He had decided that tho much-

the protestations of his wife. He close

Then the motive was sought,      and
the    disappearance    of   Miss    Grimes, '

Veteran Cellist Collapsed During Vaudeville Performance
—Was Darling of British Public—Composed Famous
Broken Melody and Played Same befora cTVlillions in
English Music Halls
London. Feb. 3—Auguste Van Biene,
tho actor, composer and musician,
died suddenly on the stage of the Hip
podrome at Brighton, where ho had
been performing hiB piece, "The Master Musician," which has replaced his
famous  "The Broken Melody,1'
Ree-ently in speaking of the change
"If I hadn't changed it would have
driven me into a lunatic asylum," referring to the fact of his many performances in his original work.
"Tho Mnster Musician,'' like tho
"Broken Melody,'' afforded Van Biene
opportunities for showing his wonderful work with the cello. He had three
boIos, (he last of whi.'h had the same
melody as "Home, Sweet  Home."
At the conclusion of this, the curtain goes down on "The Musician,'9
who is collapsed in his chair. Van
Biene had gone through two performances in compressed form at th»
Hippodrome,  whieh is a music hall.
When he fell back in his chair at
the end of th.' se'cond performance,
nobody in the audience thought it was
anything moro than the usual finish
by the playing of "The Musie ian's
last melody." The stag* manager,
however, ordered the curtain down in
a hurry and hastened to the chaie of
"The musician." The colli ict had
played his last tune. He was dead,
probably fiom heart disease. Ho waa
born in Holland in 184.1.

Ottawa, Feb. 1—The railway legislation whieh is earning before ihe house
ol commons, and its big railway com
mittee, this year, impiesses the fact
that railway builders of today and
those who are obtaining charters for
the future are recognizing that electric
ity is the coming motive power. A
striking example of that point is
shown in the bill now before tbe house
with respect to the Calgary, Edmonton and Fort MeMurray Railway Co.
This is the company which is obtaining a charter to build into the Peaoe
River country, a line 2,300 miles in
length in all, a regular transcontinental, or at least trans-Dominion in itself, and for that great undertaking it
is asking parliament for the right to
use steam and electricity as it may
see fit. More than that, it is securing
the right to develop alectrieity and to
distribute it along the line of its route
to municipalities and private parties.
The securing of the right by charter
to generate and dispose of electricity
is not in any way new in railway
eharters. But in the present case
the wording of the bill makes it plain
that the company intends to generate
power and use power, and to dispose
of "its surplus." This it will be enabled to do by use of thegreat water-
powers in the north country through
which it passes and which will thus
be harnessed for thc first time.
Thnt a railway project so vast as
tbat to be chartered for this company
should lie proposing the us.' of electricity over parts of its line has attracted some attention here, particularly among Ontario members, who
are best  ae-quainted  with    the      de -
velopment and application of electric*
a! energy,  but  an examination  of tho
railway legislation that is before tha
house     and committee at the present;
time shows that mii'h of it     auticl«
pates,  if it do:s not actually        provide, for tbe use of     electricity     aii
motive power.   And this is so of linea
of great  length  western as    Well      as
eastern.      The Peace River      Railway,
already  referred  to  is       aa  example
Similar is the charter which is   being
granted  to  the Dominion  Northwestern Railway company which plans la
I build  from  Retina  to  Red  Dot,    AI-
! berta. and with branch lines to Bat -
' tleford and Fort McKay.    Anyone who
takes  the trouble to look up      these

Washington, Feb. 1—The free li-t ot
the American tariff, whieh is ot most
importance to Canada, furoished the
basis for the final hearings before tha
house i ommittee on ways and means)
yesterday. The Underwood free \',->t
bill, passed at the last session of Coa
gress, proposed to put on tbe freo
j list agricultural implements, cotton,
■ bagging, cotton, leather, boots and
I shoes, fence wire, meats, eereals, and
bread, flour, timber, lumber, sewing
machin-s, salt and other articles. Ta
nearly all these, Canada is competing
with the United States. We're all
these to be put on the free list, it la
admitted that the tarifl bill would
diminish the revenues of the United
States by from ten million to fourteen million dollars and it is generally,
believed that this balance would be
transferred from thi- >ountiy to Canada.
Representatives of most of the farmers in tbe United States were present to protest against tlie placing of

The freight rales on cows and heifers
is reduced b.v nearly half from all

In the past, cattle whose pedigree
was produced could be shipped into

rates we're confined to this class of
catllo only, but now thc reduced rata
applies to all cows and heifers. This
will help dairying to a gteat extent.

Winnipeg. Feb. 7—Norval Baptie,

be instrumental in reviving amateur
speed skating in western Canada. It
is too late to do anything of an extensive nature this year, owing to the
lateness of the season, but Norval has
plans under consideration for next
These nre nothing less than a series
of invitation meets in the big cities
of western Canada, such as Winnipeg,
Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, v'ancou-
and possibly Victoria.
Baptie believes it is possible to
bring out the best in the amateur
ranks. The list would include Bobby
McLean, of Chicago, Wheeler of Montreal, and Logan of Toronto. With
Western skaters lining up against
these cracks Baptie is of the opinion
that speed skating would again come
inlo popular favor.
Baptie has been touring the west In
company with Miss Isabel Butlei, Nor
val says it has been th • most successful tour he has ever undertaken.
Baptie arrived in Winnipeg yesterday and will holiday for a couple of
days at his home in Bathgate, N. D.
He will be i oaipelled to continue hi<
tour alone for a few days as Miss But
ler is now In Chicago undergoing au
operatian for an injured toe. Baptie
will probably give an exhibition in
Winnipeg about  February 20.
Norval is still open to defend his
championship laurels. A Saranac

races arainst Lamy and another star
professional, but the inducements were
not of a nature to appeal to th? Bath
gate wonder.
