Alter n good ileal of discussion the

Hi*. Kobei'tnon, minister of education,
it would lm advisable to change the
name of Strathcona school to some
other name, atnl accordingly hereafter thc new school will be known
as Selkirk  school.
It Will he remembered that early In
thc yenr a competition was engaged
in  by  the  public  in  which  $5      was

moBt  suitable name selected from    a j
list of names sent in hy the interested  public.        The  name    Strathcona :
waB submitted* hy  Miss L/ily Daniels,
and on a vote of the     board      this '
name      was selected,  and  thc  money
awarded her.
But some time nfter Dr. Robertson
notiliea the board that a school al- '
ready existed in the province with
the same name, and that, two schools
of thc same name would create con
sid-erab'le confusion in his department
The board, however, having taken
so much trouble to select a name and
considering thc fact that the public
had a hand in selecting it, were very
loathe to make a change. Repeated
protests from ihe Minister of Education and a general feeling among the
public that the Provincial department
should be taken into consideration,
however, finally decided tha hoard in
their action of Monday night. Con-
Bequently hereafter the new school

Five Passengers Slightly Injured
at Semlin Sunday Night
AU of the passenger cars of No. 4
passenger train due here Monday
morning at about 12:45 were derailed
on Sunday night at about G o'clock
nt Semlin station, about six miles
west of Walhaclin. Five passengers
were slightly injured, among these
being A. D. Mclntyre of Kamloops, whose shoulder was badly
wrenched, and a Mr. Myers of Vancouver,  who  is said  to be somewhat
seriously  hurt. ^	
The train had been sidetracked and | are *V€t '". hllt a start is being made

such might be the case, as the mes-
sag-e asks if the grounds arc avail -

The wire iB from Geo. W. Corbiu,
of Vancouver, whoever he might be—
and reads as follows:
"Are Agricultural grounds open for
aviation exhibition on July 5th?

Mr. Field repli-ed immediately, placing rental at a very low figure, but
so far no further information has
been received from Mr. Corbin.
No preparations are yet being made
for the annual fall fair in Revelstoke
Mr. Field stated, beyond those made
at the meeting of a month ago.
Hon. Thos. Taylor Says Progress
That Has Been Made in Past
Few Years is Wonderful
"The progress that has bean nimlc
in   road      btlllding  and   the   resultant
development of tne country throughout the south* district has been wonderful," snid lion. Thos. Taylor to
the Mail-Hernld representative on
Saturday,  on  his arrival here.
Mr. Taylor has been on hia annual
inspection tour and has visited Cranbrook, Fernie, Hosmer, Fort Steele,
Nelson, Kaslo, Proctor, Qrand Forks,
Greenwood, I'hocniv, Midway, Hock
Creek, Beaton, Comaplix, and a num
ber of other places, and is now in
this city for three or four days taking a run over the new road development  in  this district.
"Thc  roads  all  through  the      dis-
i tricts which  I  travelled are in excellent shape," he said,  "and there has
; been an     immense     amount of work
done since  last year, and this      has
been the means     of    developing     a
large  area  of  arable land  and  plac -
j ing  it under cultivation.      I was indeed  agreeably surprised  at  the    exceptionally  largo  area  thnt  is  under
cultivation now to what there was a
few years ago.      And  with   this land
opened  up  the  progress  of  thc  var -
ious cities and  towns  has  kept  pace
"In East Kootenay generally, I
found conditians exceptionally good,
and it was somewhat of a surprise to
me to see the activity tbat, in spite
of the coal strike, is so noticeable in
Fernie. The citizens of that place
seem to be most optimistic. I do
not think myself though that the
strike will bc settled for some time
At Nelson and a number of other
plaoes Mr. Taylor was associated
with A. S. Goodeve, M.P., in a series of meetings where addresBSB were
delivered on the reciprocity pact.
In Nelson, Mr. Taylor said the people practically to a man were opposed to the agreement.

Sir Wm. Whyte May Become Next
Winnipeg, June 2(1.—The knighthood bestowed on vice-President
Whyte of the C.P.R. has given rise to
a number of rumors, one being that
he will succeed Sir Daniel MscMillan
as lieutenant-governor next fall when
the latter may go to London as high
commissioner. Quite another version
is that Sir William Whyte himself is
destined for the high commissioner-
ship, enjoying as he does the contid -
ence of all sections of the public.
Kenneth MacKenzie, the well-known
wholesale merchant here, but now retired, refused the lieutenant-governorship about a year ago, but might
iccept it now.

anticipated that as soon as the contract is let the work will be pro-

Canadian banking act which puts into the hands of a lew Canadian ban
kers the power to say whether or not
any moro banks shall be chartered in
this country.
What this country needs more than

it is husbanding its resources "to

We have become so used to hearing
this table that we now accept it. as
gospel. It is candidly confessed that
Canadian banks have not ihe wherewithal upon which to conduct the
business ol the country, yet under the
banking act one of the strongest financial institutions in England is prevented Irom establishing a new bank
in Canada unless it takes over some

Canadian bank stocks arc among

methods enable them to play safe at
all times. Their losses through bad

there have been some very disgraceful failures.
The system ot central banks has its
weaknesses as well a>- its advantages
One of the latter is the facility with
which lands may be centralized at

it enables bhe banks to starve a

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.

But to say that Dominion Eire Wardens are responsible for fires on private property is just as reasonable
as to assert that the Revelstoke tire
brigade should run oil to Kamloops
or any other town where there may-
lie a blaze and the beneficiaries to expect Revelstoke to bear the responsibility and expense.
l/ct mc state in conclusion that the

tbat even the Dominion Eire Wardens
notwithstanding your inestimable

thoroughly understand their duty;
and further that tbere is no friction
so fnr as I am aware, between the
Dominion and Provincial Forest Fire

two branches of public service have
worked together very hannoniously,
and will, I trust, continue to do so.
I might here state that I am aot per
son-ally versed in either the instructions or the responsibi.ity of the
Provincial Wardens as to damage to
private holdings but no doubt you
can obtain this information ly up-

Of course it may be possible
