Conservatives of City Congratulate him on liis Appointment
-Handsome Presentation
The dining rooms of the King Edward hiitel on Wednesday evening wns
the scone ol a very merry party when
d large number "I his personal
Irlends anl political admirers gathered i" banquet Mr, W. \v. Poster
president of the Revelstoke Con-
servative Association, prior to his
departure tor Victoria to assumo tho
position of Deput} Minister ol Public
Works with the Provincial govern
The lables were arranged along the
length ol the dining room, while at
the h 'a.i of the room these were ci n
nected by a shorter table al which
were seated the guest of the evening,
mil n number of his warmest nnl
must personal friends who appeared
more or less prominently in the evening's proceedings, At his right *nt
Mr, T. Kilpatrick nnd W. A. Sturdy,
while to his left Mr. Huy Macdonald,
the chairman of the evening anil Mayor Hamilton.
The tables themselves were ., vent
nhle delight to the heart ol the opl
cure nn.l to the eye of the artist,
as besides being loaded with delicate
viands they were bedecked hero and
there with vases ,,f delicate cut flow
ers, orchids and carnations. At the
rear of the nupsts' tahle an orchestra
of three pieces played during the
progress of th:- banquet, while find',
of this orchestra again Union .lacks
were artistically arranged as a hack-
ground. •
Close on to two hundred sat down
to these tables and after the hospital
ity of Host McSorley was partaken
of a toast list varied in character,
nnl a program of musical and enter-
tainins: selections was run <iff for the
delectation of those present. Each
ol the participants of the toast list
■halt briefly with his subject and finally wound up by complimenting Mr.
Foster on liis appointment and wish
Ing h m every success in his new
The feature of the evening wns the
presentation to Mr. Poster of a beautiful suit case complete with n silver
set of gentleman's toilet utensils,
which presentation was made by Mr.
Kilpatrick on behalf of the Conservative Association.
In ri.-n; to open th' twist list Mr
Roy Macdi nald explain d thai the
occasion was in th? nature of a farewell to Mr. Ko-ter. Many Invitations had been extended, he said, and
he was pleased to see such a hearty
rcspi n-*' t.i these. Had these Invitations been extended "inside of the
iticn he was certain that there
would nut have been a hall in Revelstoke large enough to accommi date
those who would attend.
He ci ngratulated Mr. Foster on
having received the appointment, and
als i Ci ngratulated the B. C. government i n securing the services ot such
a capable man. Mr. Foster, while
Killer of the Revelstoke Conservative Association ha*! made it the
banner organization of the province,
had put it nn a working basis thai
it had never before attained. He had
raused the adoption of a system by
which the vi iters list could bc kept
up to late the whole year through.
This system had been copied through
out the whulu of B. C, and he ven
tured to say would be in time
throughout the whole of the Dominion. During the past six months
Mr, Foster had instituted ten Conservative associations anl Mr. Maodon-
al I predicted that In the near future
we would bear from Mr. Foster much
higher up than the present position
to which he is appointed. The chairman In closing read telegrams and
expressions of regret at not being
able t" be present from Q. Qibberts,

Th- toast to the King was respond
ed to by the assembled crowd rising

mil lollowing this thc toast to the
city was proposed nn.l responded to
:. Mayor Hnmilt. n an 1 W.M. Brown.
Mayor Hamllti n explained that this
was the second serious occasion he
bad been present ut in that hall. The
first was the marriage of Mr. Wadman all I the NCond tho present one.

and honest in ils convictions of a

is what counts in a city. 0U3 noticeable feature of Revolstoke was
thai its progress bad been steady and
not marked with bluster and boom
such as Was lh' ease Willi mrny another city of th' province. If, ho

In regard to Mr. Foster who was
going to form a part of that government he believed that as mayor of
the city he voiced the opinion of every citizen that we are losing a good
man whose position it would be impossible to fill so capably. He re -
cognized Mr. Foster as a leader among men. His attitude with thc political organizations, with the gov -
ernment of the city, the Y.M.C.A.
and all other Institutions find always
been in the capacity of a leader. On
behalf of the City he extended best
wishes mil hopes of success to Mr.
Foster nnd knew that everybody
would kecn'y feel his loss. He felt
lie must congratulate the government
i n securing the services of a man of

Mi*. W. M. Brown felt thai there
was little left fur him to say. but
he recited some of the interesting incidents of the early government of

that if Hevelstoke bad been kept the
listributing point tint it. ,,nce was
that fully seventy-five per nut. uf the
money that Is now roing to the
states wou'd be coming here. It Was
a matter uf much gratification to him
that th're were good men in the city

minister sh mid both be clmsin from
ihis  city.
Historians hnl argued llmt the

Mr. Hubert Gordon in responding to

this road there was an enormous uul

A splendid  game of  baseball     be-
twern tic Corley House and Fire Hri-
gada No. - drew a big crowd of spectators   which   lined   the   athletic   field
i.n   all   sides    and  cheered   themselves
hoarse, and  it was n matter of much
disappointment   to  many  thnt      tha
jiime was , nly run seven innings an I
resulted in a tie.     .Sume really good
plays were  made,  although  the  game
aboi n led  in  errors—this  being largely  due  to the  fact that  it  was      the
first game of the" seasin.      It      has,
however, revealed  the fart thnt there
is among the enthusiasts  tbe      makings of a really good team that would
do jusiice to tlie city at nny of    the
outside  towns.        Burrldge and  Yott
will make BPlendld pitchers    aftor   a
little  practice,   the former succeeding
n  pulling one of liis opponents out
n  three straight throws, while      the
latter though a little erratic throws
a   good curve at  times that  is   puzzling t" the man at hat.     The result
of the game was Hs follows:
Corley House— 2 0 ii 0 1 0 1—7
Fire Brigade—3 C 0 3 0 l 0—7
For Hi' Corley Hoi.se Harrison succeeded  in      getting  two of  the  runs;

The lacrosse gams afterwards showed some •pieiidid combination   work
and splendid shooting on both sides.
For the Pettipiece team some of tlie
younger fry exhibited a wonderful
aplns-i in handling their >.tickH, while
McCarter's shooting on tbe uppon-
ini's goal would do credit to many a
more cipoi lenoed playei. His clever
work was largely responsible for the
majoi Ity of one goal for the Petti

any man who had stood the hardships of Itevelstoke for eleven years,
■mild stand anything.
Trade and commerce was respended
to by Mr. MoClcueghi n, Mr. Gibson,
Mr.  (ottrell  and  tj.  S.   MeCarter.
Mr. McCleneghan was deeply indebted for the hi nor they bad ,1, ne
him in asking bun to icsp, n 1 to this
tonst. He wns not  prepared to make
nny  kind  of  a si ch.  but   was    clad
of the opportunity of making a few
remarks. Up to a year or s,, ago,

wanted a good nmn foi minister ol

In acting thus Mr, Gibson thought he
acted wisely. He bad no hesitancy
