Trophy of $1000 Offered for Exhibit-Board Makes Kick
Against Telegraphic Tolls
The Board ol Trade is looking for
potatoes, big potatoes*, and potatoes
that are liable to earn a $1.WKI trophy. A communication has beeu re-
ceiv.nl by the secretary ot the local
board and was read at tho sitting on
Thursday night last. Every member
was unanimous in thc opinion thut
that $1,000 trophy could just as well
be earned by Kevelstoke as uny other place, because it is known that
spuds grow here that have to be piled up like cordwood sticks. The communication came from the Department of Agriculture, at Victoria and
reads ns follows:
Victoria,  June 8th, 1911.
Sir,—Allow me to draw your attention to the following communication recently received in this Department, with regard to the One Thousand Dollar Stilwell Trophy to be given for the hest exhibit of potntoes at
tbe American Lund and Irrigation
Exposition, to be held at Madison
Square Gardens, New York, Novem -
ber 3rd to 12th, 1911.
"At the American Lund and Irrigation Exposition to be held at Madison Square Gardens, New York, en
November 3rd to 12th, 1911, there is
a One Thousand Dollar Trophy offered for the best exhibit of late potatoes. The exhibit does not necessarily need to belong to one individual, but may be exhibited by a Department of Agricultural, Farmers'
Organization, or by a District. The
main point is that, the One Thousand
Dollar Stilwell Trophy is to be given
for the best exhibit of potatoes represented by marketable iiuaiity,
smooth appearance, Hush eyes and
uniformity of size. The yield of
each variety per acre, which acre
must be officially survey?d, must be
sworn to by the grower, and attested by two or more reputable witnesses.
"It will readily appear to you, that
tbe wianing of a trophy of this character will advertise your province at
this great exhibition extensively. We
are confident that splendid potntoes
can ire grown in Western Canada und
ure very anxious that one, or all of
the four Western provinces shall tuke
this matter up in a systematic and
careful manner, supplying a credit -
; uble exhibit so thut, if possible, you
; may win the handsome trophy re-
ferred to.
I "Will it not bc possible for your
Department to take up this matter.
We would like to have a reply from
you stating what you would bc pro-
pared to do in the way of gathering
this exhibit."
Our Department will be pleased to
hear in this connection from those
who atv prepared to contribute towards the collection of late potatoes
for competieion for this trophy. The
Department will Undertake the collection and forwarding of the exhibit,
which will he entered ns a Provincial
display and will, I hope, prove a
credit to our Province und u strong
meafia of advertising the agricultural
possibilities of our country.
It is to; l>c hoped thut all those who
are nb'lc will help towards securing a
comprehensive aud creditable exhibit.
I have the honor to lie, Sir, your
obedient servant,
Wm, K.  800TT,
Deputy Minister.

Board of Trade to get certain legislation through  was filed.
Mr. O. S. MeCarter raised tho ques
tion as to why a telegraph message
from Hevelstoke to Chicago should
cost $1.15 while a similar message
from Vancouver to the same place
can be sent for 75 cents. Mr. W.M.
Lawrence suggested that the same-
principle applied to telegraph messages as tn freight tariffs and that
■it was the heavy haul that caused
the dillerence in rates. However the
secretary was instructed to write Mr.
II. S. Jenkins and ask him whether
these conditions could bo bettered or
On the suggestion of Mr. A. J. J
Macdonell the secretary was instructed to write the city council askins
them to have the roads raked clear
of rocks, cans, stones and other rubbish, as it was pointed out that i
some of these were in a disgraceful
condition. J. P. McLennan suggested that, the board also tako action
against tbc indiscriminate distribution of bills and paper, but nothing
was done in this matter.
The advertising committee was Instructed to take up with the Interior
Printing Co. the question of having
a concise writctip of the city printed
on the back of the Board nf Trade
correspondence paper.
A communication Irom the B. C.
Fruitgrowers' Association re reciprocity wns turned down and tiled on
the ground submitted by Mr. G. S.
MeCarter that it savored loo much

C. A. Barnum and Capt. W. W.

Moving Steel Train on the
South Line
With bis head crushed beyond recognition the body of Prank Samlon-
ato, nn Italian youth about I'.I years
of age, Was brought into tbe city this
innming from tbe south, and now
lies at. Howson's undertaking parlors
awaiting an Inquest which will probably be held  tonight.
Th,' unfortunate man was the victim of un accident while working on
a Bteel train some fourteen miles to
the south. Two gangs of men were
busy unloading steel rails along the
track where the C.P.R. is putting on
heavier steel, and while the train
slowly moved along to allow of proper distribution of the rails one of
the workmen suddenly noticed the
young man falling hend foremost between two of the cars.
The train wns immediately brought
to a standstill but tbe head und urm
of the* unfortunate had passed beneath the wheels, and life was extinct when the body wus tuken from
the track.
Deceased had been in thi- employ of
the C.P.R. for about six months,- in
the capacity of a laborer.

Get your Milkman to produce a Government Certificate like the following:
No. 1930
Contagious Disease (Animal) Act
Grade  B. Certificate
This is to certify that I
have inspected the premises
and herd of T. Lewis, of
Revelstoke. The premises
do not strictly conform to the
condition set forth in the
'standard,' and the herd has
been tested for tuberculosis
once a year and has been
found free from that disease.
m Remarks : Cows are in
good shape and milk handled
in a sanitary manner.
(Signed) Dr. B. R. ILSLEY,
July 3rd, 1911.        Inspector.
Note :—The only fault with
the premises is that while
the "standard" calls for
800 cubic feet of space for
each animal, whereas our
stable only contains a little
over 700 cubic feet for
each animal.

The Indians feel offended; they feel
that they bave l<een slighted by the
fair management. They ure not allowed tq take part in the fair, there
arc do Indian paireants, there is nothing for them to do but look on, and
they are hurt in dignity and pride.
Also they have been given what
they consider "a cold deck" in the
matter of raoeu. Every year since
time immemorial the Indian races
at the fair have been a big attraction, tbe Indians rode to win
and spared neither horseflesh nor
leather. In fact, many people used
to go simply to see the Indians race.
They competed {or small prizes, rang
ing from one to five dollars generally, some rare occasions drawing ten
dollar prizes, but they rode as hard
for the one dollar purses as for tbe
five and ten. Up till the present
year they were allowed to enter at
will, no entry fee being charged.
The Indians have brought in their
best horeee to the fair, ready for the
regularly expected races under the
old conditions, but, according to one
of their number, tbey hnve been told
that they will have to pay to race.
This they have refused to do, and
they sulk about it,—Calgary Herald.

A Retrospect
Twenty years ago she was but a little
village of four or five hundred. You could
in half an hour count every house. Then
you had no faith in her possibilities for
growth and you didn't invest your earnings. You passed the opportunity up and
to-day you are not much further ahead.
A Regret
Have you been a Rip Van Winkle and
slept for these past twenty years ? If so
you must now wake up to the possibilities
of the next twenty years and regret your
inaction. Sit down and look yourself in
the face, ask yourself if you have acted
wisely. Be honest about it and answer the
question in all seriousness.

to live out in the suburbs owing to the increased price of property. Think it over
and decide at once.
