We might 'ake. up tb matter of the

large. I donoi think it would take us
v. ry Ion . alter that tho city siatl

Alel rn n Howson—1 think exaotlj
on the line- of Mr. Abrahamson. I

■ ily council niild, If they wi-hed to
devote the ijm0t nnd it is a matter
whi'h means a lol of time. I think
it i- neceinury to have the assessment
materially raited, and I think that
should he done Id the parts of the
town where the values are raising.
Aid. Bourne—1 agree with Ihe speak
er-. It seems to me some of the property is considerably lower than it
should be, an.l we need more money
to carry on the rity business, 1 under
•elami an assessor would cost $600.
whieh is considerable. If we can save
Hint, we  nic  to  miieh   ahead.
Aid. McSorley— I agree. We look
forward to a large Increase tn values
during the coining year. If Hint i.omos
I think next year would be a better
lime lo make a regular general nuess
Mayor      Kllpntrlek—-Well,    f    agree
with  the opinion- expressed to    some
extent, I cannot agree with you thru'-
I out.   There has heen n,o proper assess
' ment  of    this     city since 1910,   This
patchwork so far as it has lieen done,
I do not think has been satisfactory,
nor f do not think we have today   an
equalization  of     assessments as     we
' should have. Some of the outside resi
dential portions of the city may     be
assessed  high enough, there are other
'poitions  whieh  are  not  assessed  properly.   We hope for an  iti'-rease       in
values,   I know   a case,   very  recently,
where a certain piece of property was
offered for sal,', the owner asked twice
what  it was assessed for.   The    prospective buyer  immediately came back
with "why the property Is only assess
led  for half that.
Now, is this .oun i! in a position to
make a thoro ich as-essment of this
town. It means time, and 1 do not
think it inn be .kino correctly in the
ottice. Buildings especially must be
examined in detail. I am not wishing
'to go.'againset ihe wishes of the council. I tu.** expressing my own honest
opinion. '"-u
Aid. McSorley—Do you think j»re
would be just as far behind ne'xt year
Mayor T. Kilpatriik—I a-.r.'? with
you,   and  I • erminly  hope  so.
Aid. McSorley—That is my idea in
staving oil the assessment.
Aid. Bourn"—In the e-a-.' of build -
ings, is it the' intention to soak the
progressive ciii en who improves his
iiii'icrty. *-
Mayor Kilpatrick—We are supposed
to nss"-s i'n! esiate at its actual val
ue, and 1 uil.lings al one-half. That
is lhe law and we have no option. We
take buildings as a: the time of the
aSsessmrnt.less  HO  per cent.
Aid. Bourn' — I would like to see
lhal nviele 27, per cen:. to encourage
lm] rovements.
Ma '•'  Kilpatrick—I would like     to
see a fair assessment,  at  the p
time   we  have  nm   got a fair  a -ess-

Aid.   McK'mnon—I  think  the'    most
glaring examples are in the business
. section. ' After  the     asses-o • is  thru'

Mayor Kilpatrick—Yes at the court
of re-.i-io'i, nnd lhat ho'ds good whether we a--se-s or ihe a-sossor doe~

of us, to give time to the matter. 1

Aid. Howson—The opinion of th? as
sessor is only the option of one man,
and it seems to me the council might
, do a better job if they unitedly tackled thc same in a broad minded manner
Mayor Kilpatrick—I do not m<an to
say that you are all wrong. I am only exlresslng my own opinion, just
1 as all you tire expressing opinions. I
am willing to give time and act in
any w-ny which Is decided.

Mayor Kilpatrick—I think so.
Aid.  Barber—May  he  you are right
at that.
Alderman MeKinnon—1 make a motion, that the city council as a hody j
equalise' the assessment of land val -
ties and improvements in the city an>i
raise same where thought advisable. |
Seconded hy Aid irman Abrahamson,
aad carried unanimously.
Deputation  from  the Progress Club]
consisting of Messrs. McRa- and Wallace, waited  upon  the  council  asking
for a grant  of $1000  for publicity purposes, for the Progress Cluh.
Aid. Abrihamson—I would like to
know whether this delegation is distinct from the Board of Trade delegation, they having also asked for
a grant of $500. If these bodi. s com- j
bined their plans, I think they would
get more returns.
Mayor Kilpatrick—I  think the Pro-!
gress Club of Revelstoke, and       the
Board of Trade  of R vi Istoke should
get .together, and tind out what these
bodies are really intending to do.
Aid. M.-Kinnon—Our donations last !

easily amount   to  $2W0.

A terrible disco.cry wa- made by
two foil travellers on Sunday afternoon, whilst walking from Revelsto'.te
to Arrowhead along the C.P.Ry. track
Alo.it nin3 miles non Revelstoko,
tbey stumbled over the mangled and
frozen remains of a man, scattered between the rails. A hasty message
brought      distance   from   Revelstoke,
and    the remains of humanity      w	
picked uie and conveyed to town.
Coroner Dr, Hamilton was at once
notified, and a preliminary investigation was held resulting in the appal-
in.' discovery that lhe iemnins were
those of a well-known and highly respected citizen of Revelstoke named
.). Halverson. llow the unfortunate
victim got on ih<' track is a mystery,
but sntii 'lent knowledge bas been gain
id of hi- movements on the fatal Sab
hath to poini to the following explanation of ihe grim tragedy.
Mr. Halverson, who is an elderly
gentlemen some 60 years of age, and
* ii Ide in Rei el loke, set out on the
South Haii: Sunday morning for Bart-
man's Camp, Situated close to tho
&1 mile hoard. The train -tirired al
the Seven mile post, but lhe conductor of lh" min has no recollection of
punching th- lickel of an. pasnengor
destined for 8J mile. The train mov-
ulai about the usual speed I'om 7
mile post to Green Slide. It is supposed thai Halverson intended to get
nil al the 8| mile, hul recognising
when Iho train came in ight of the
Green Sli.le. lhal he haa over run
his de-t inai inn and jumped from the
I rain.    Tlie' SHOW   is   piled   hi'll     along
ihe tra k where the plow   have thrown
il during the lata he.ny falls. and
In-   must   have   rolled   off bis  f.-.-t.   and
right i inlei- the wheel-. ,,f the train.
v.. one paw bim take ihe fatal jump,
an.l lbe train proceed ■<! along in Its
destination, with everyone in Ignorance as io what had happened.
Late in the afternoon, iwo men.
Walking nlon.' the track frnm Iteve-I -
stoke to Arrowhead, found (he hotly
and sani' was brought hack on the
evening train.
Mr. Hntehelor of the Climax hotel,
is the only person who can be found
who remembers seeing HnlverHon on
the train, Ihis was immediately after
leaving Revels!okel
Conductor    McLean   and Engineer
Prown, are nnalde to throw any light
on the matter, the conductor does not
recollect having seen tho passenger,
and was not requested to "top at the
BJ mile post.
Deceased  leaves  a fnmlly, two      of
his sons are working in     Revelstoke,
and great sympathy is felt for them In
their  bereavement caused  by  such    a I
sudden Calamity. |
Dr. Hamilton, coioner, held an in-[
quest la-it evening to enquire into the
cause of death of the late J, Halverson, in the Howson undertaking parlors. The juryin.'ii were:—J, Abra -
bamson, foreman, J.A. Stone, E. M.
Remelard, H. Sighfried, K Nesbett,
and P. Heine. After viewing the re -
main- which presented an extremely
gruesome appearance, Coroner Hamilton proceeded in tak. evidence,
The first witness was Conductor A.
McLean, whn upon being duly sworn,
said In part. "I am con luctor employed hy the t'.l'.U. i mining from
Revelstoke to Arrowh a.l. I was in
charge of train SOI on the morning of
February 9th leaving ReveUt.oke at

for 71 mile board, but none for SJ
mile hoard, or Burton's Camp. I
would not know  ihe man who got oft
at  71  mile.   I lure no  ' II - -t ion of
having seen the deceased. I th'nk I
would know two of the men wl:

men get oft. The nexi stop was Wigwam. I had nc knowledge of bi a

of a prooess of making a wood sub -
stitute out of straw. The invention
is calculated to render service in car-j

years of study and experiments to
solve ihe problem, but the latest results are said to be very satisfactory. '
The process of manufacture con -
sists in transforming straw into a
solid substance, just as resistant as

boiling and lho addition of chemicals

Congressman Charles B. Lanffls, et
Indiana, whose speech against Brlfr
ham H. Roberts caused him to be dub
bed the new Demosthenes of tht
House, tells ln the March 'Success'
the following story of his first experience in public speaking: —
"It seemed but yesterday," he told
tne, "that I got up and faced that first
public audience of mine. I had spoken a fejv sentences in fear and trembling, complimentary to the fanners on
taking io much interest in public questions, when my brother yelled, 'Good!
Good! Bravo! Hear! Hear.' He
wanted to encourrge me, you «ec.
When he grew quiet, I proceeded. A
few minutes later, when I had scored
a good point, —ln John's opinion,—
be broke loose again ln snoh applause
that Ib sounded like a fractious horse
In a livery stable. The effect on the
audience was magical. No one knew
be waB my brother. What my speech
failed to accomplish, John's enthusiasm brought about. I got te laughing, and bo did the *rowd. It was easy
for me then, for I abandoned all my
let phrases and to' 1 a few good stories such as all country audiences
enjoy. When the meeting was dismissed, John was the first one to rush up
and say, 'You did great.' I did not
have the heart to fold him, for I had
yarned, through him, the great lesson
Jt euccess In puMlC speaking.—the
getting In touch with one's audlenc*
by talking to them, not at them."

Ask Consideration from Dominion Government for Canada's
Single Unprotected Industry. —W. A. Anstie Resigns
Secretaryship on Becming Executive Head of Forest
Mills, Limited.
Nolson. B.C.. Feb. S—Lumbermen representing over 80 of tho largest mills
in th- interior of British Columbia at
th' annual meeting of the Mountain
Lumber Manufacturers' association In
Nelson yesterdaj went strongly on record a- desiring tiie frdcral govern -
ment to give, thc industry the protection, for the lack of which it ia said
to be suffering such looses through the
dumping of common grades of the
American product on the prairie market Lun,ber is the only industry of
importance, it wa- Btated, in Canada
which is without some form of pro-
tee-iion and vigorous eflorts are lo be
ma,i • in an endeavor to persuade the
.Inion authoiitie- to levy a duty
..a ihe product.
Last year, it was stated, over 300,-
0 ■'. K) feet oi American lumber were
thi iwn on the prairie, market, with thc
re ult that prices fell considerably below the level which would give British
< . labia manufacturers an a.liquate
mi ur-on their investments.
To the Provincial government  repre-
atations will be made1, as a result oi
olution passed yesterday asking
for the introduction of an amendment
Jo th.' Fore.-t act to provide for the
irgement of the forest boar.l to includ? two lumbermen who would act
purely as an advisory and not in any
manner in an administrative capacity
i, was generally con'-eded that tbc
Foiest act was on the right lines and
th- lumbermen expressed a strong desire to act in co-operation with the
government in carrying out Ub terms
and in making any sue h amendments
which might be found desirable while
it is in what was described as a for
mative stage.
Th'' provincial government will also
be asked to take th-- appointment oi
member- of th'> forest proteciio'i ser-
vice out of politics, to give the chief
forester power to appoint his men and
to make him personally responsible for
se: tiring officials who would carry out
the work in the most satisfactory man
Th.. lumb- rraen decid.^d to meraor -
ialiae     the    provincial       authorities.
«?a;nst     making auy   increase direct
or  indirect,   in  the  royalties  .hnrged,
such a proposal having been made,
it was understood by the association.
It was stated that the industry in its
present condition could not afford to
1 ay any increase in royalties.
Production of mountain mills last
year was 420,000,000 ft., a den-case
of 60,000,000 fi. over that of 1911, it
was Btated. Prospects for the present yenr were said lo depend entirely
upon condiiions in thc United states
upon whieh w:)s dependent the
amount of lumber dumped upon tbe
British Columqia manufacturers' market.
To W. A. Anstie, who r.-signed the'
secretaryship which he has held ior
seven years, io accopl the' managing
directorship of the Koiest Mills, Limited, was done the signal honor by the
assoe-iation of being elected its . resident for ih' current year. h was
pointed out by Ihe lumbermen last,
night thai the action of making the
retiring secretary chief executive was
probably without precedent and lhat
the act ion yesterday was the result,
of the associations' appreciation of
Mr. Anstie's good work during the
past year and its recognition of his
outstanding ability for the chief of-
fi'-e in ils giit.
CD. McNab of Waldo wa- appointed
vice president and thc new directors
are:—F. W. Adolph of Baynes, B. W.
Sawyer of Chase, H.H. Ross of Waldo an 1 L. D. Rogers of Golden. A.E.
Frank, assistant secretary, will be act
ing si ceretary of thc organization until a successor to Mr. Anstie is ap -
As n re e-ognitiou oi his sterling
worth and the fair manner in which he
has conducted bis duties as timber inspector for the provincial government
a position for whieh he is retiring, A.
Carney was presented by A.E. Watts,
on behalf of the association with a
handsome gold watch and chest filled
with .?20 gold pieces. Mr. Carney has
held ihe posi'ion whieh hc is now relinquishing for nine years and, Mr.
Watts pointed out in making the presentation, has never failed to curry out
his duties in a manner satisfactory to
the province and to the lumbermen by
whom he i- held in high respect.

much discussion oi the present politi-'
■ al situation  in  regard to  the    naval;

stop to the battle. The police slopped ihe contest becatl e Flynn in their
opinion, was a hopelessly beaten man
