SHAUGHNESSY'S VISIT
Railway Magnates Pass Thru'
Revelstoke
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president
ol the C.P.R., W. Whyte, 2nd vice
president; F. F: Bueleed, general sup
erintendent of the western division
and others on the division staff
arrived in the city at 6 p.m. yesterday
en route for the coast, by special
train. The train consisted of the cars
"Manitoba," and "Killarney,'" as well
as baggage, etc. The party did not
leave the station, but visited the offices, etc., before their train pulled out
ahead of No. 97.
Among otber things Sir Thomas
denied the story that the C.P.R. is
surveying a line through Pine Pass to
the Pacific coast and also that the
Company bad purchased tbe White
Pass aod Yukon railroad. He expressed himself pleased with tbe pro
gress Revelstoke bad made and the
proepenty ol tbe west generally.
In a discussioo at points along the
line he laid tbat the recent financial
crisis had proven a veritable boon to
the whole country. It had steadied
things down to a solid normal, lt
bad compelled tbe people to stop and
think. The action ol the banks was
drsstie in an ultimate sense; it osme
without warning, like a thiel in the
night, and with it came an intensely
anxious time for practically everyone
Fortunately lor bis oorporation, it hsd
at tbat time, about a year ago now,
the huge sum ol 20 million dollars on
deposit, which feet saved tbe situation.
He blamed tbe banks very emphatically lor tbe very flagrant way in
whioh they encouraged speculation in
lands and real.y and then, after having done so, it seemed hard to have
them suddenly shut down oo everyone. It would bave been better had
they shut down on sueb negotiations
a year before they did.
Speaking ol railway development
Sir Thomas stated that his eompsny
had within tbe past twelve months
constructed about 1000 miles of new
lines, and tbat it was by no means
done One fact he deplored was tbat
the settlers ignored available lands in
districts traversed  by convenient and
existing railways and settled in remoter locations beyond the teach of
transportation facilities and all the
other advantages whioh such (acilities
involved. Having settled sparsely in
such outlying districts, the next thing
they did was to agitate for a railway.
Now, owing to the slender settlement
the operation of a railway was impossible except at a lass, and the proposition wns therefore unattractive to
any comi n'sy. How much better it
would be from every standpoint, he
contended, if the settler would locus
attention toiely on available land adjacent to existing lines, of which land
tbere was abundance, rather than go
out to cheaper land sections to await
the coming ol railways. In the end it
would cost more than if they went
into settled sections served by railways.

Brakeman Crushed to   Death
Between Two Cars
A sad accident, attended with fatal
results, occurred on Monday evening
at Sicamous junction. It appears
tbat A. M McLennan, C. P. R. brake
.nan, was in thu act of coupling two
passenger c»rs, when turning half
round for some purpose, he evidently
did not notice thai the two cars were
so close, and beforo he could realize
that danger was Ihnali.niug and get
clear, the edges of lhe cars caught him
with n sickening force, crushing the
body. The injured man wns hn.tily
placed aboard the eust bound train No.
2, for conveyance to the hospital here.
The poor fellow, suffering untold
agonies, lingered throughout most of
the tedious journey, but the shock
was ao great and tbe internal injuries
sustained proved too much and McLennan breathed his last just as the
train was climbing the rise beloie the
down grade on the home stretch to
the city. The deceased was well
known and popular in Revelstoke,
being the cousin of Hory McLennan,
C.P.R. eonduotor, and Alex. Mcl.eu-
hrakeman. The body will be shipped
to Nova Scotia where the deceased
has his home. From reports of those
who were near at tbe time ol the accident it appears that tbe side lever
which is used for coupling passenger
cars was either broken or removed
whioh necessitated the brakeman
stooping under the car platform to
make the coupling. The inquest is
taking place while we are going to
press.
Tbe deceased leaves a widowed
mother at his home at River Dennys,
N. 8., to mourn bis loss. Incidentally
it may be remembered that the deceased had only recently returned to
work after recovering fro . severe injuries to bis head by being struck by
a mail catcher. 11 is two brothers also
met untimely ends some years ago,
both being drowned in the river that
runs through tlieir mother's farm in
Nova Scotia. Miss McLennan of Vancouver, well known in Revelstoke,
and A. D. McLennan, cousins, will
accompany the remainseast. The deceased, wbo was 24 years ol age, was a
member ol the Orange Order, besides
being a member of the Railroad
Trainmen, and was very popular
anung his associates. His death will
be widely felt.
The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 8:30 o'clock from tbe
Y. M. C. A. instead of from Howson's
undertaking parlors, as announced in
the funeral notices distributed round
tbe city, to meet No. 06, on which the
remains will be shipped to River Dennys, N. S-, the deceased's home. The
arrangements are in the bands of tbe
Broth rhood of Railroad Trainmen, of
which the deceased was a popular
member.

Shortage of Canadian Cars for
First Time Since Depression
Montreal, Oct. 20.— V sign of the
times not to be overlooked is in regard
to the idle freight cars. Last year
there were 413,338 in the States aud
Canada. There are now 125,678. A
ni st striking change in the situation
Iius taken place on the Canadian lines,
where a net shortage bas occurred for
the first time in any section since the
industrial, depression set in. The
Canadian group shows an actual shortage of 1,679 oars, a decrease from a
surplus in two weeks, b ing equivalent
to more than 50 per ceut. of the total
surplus in that group. The large
movement ol grain in western Canada
is tbe cause of that change.

TIME WILL TELL.
Rapid Progress in Revelstoke's
Development.
Even to the casual observer the
changes that hnve taken plsee in Kevelstoke during the Inst few years cannot but he markid. From a village
amongst Ihe stumps, the blsckened,
gaunt relics of the forest, Revelstoke
bus emerged a fair city, snd a cily of
progress as well as the luture industrial center of the Kootenays. With
the many local improvements tbat
have been going on and are going on
at the present there must eome prosperity, and if the'pioneers who in the
early days cut the town site out of the
lorest could rise from their graves and
see their work being cairied on with
such progress, tbey would indeed leel
their work was commenced for a pur
pose. The accompanying illustration
shows Kevelstoke in (he year 1890.
REVELSTOKE PROSPERS
Fruit Industry is Going Ahead,
Business Improving.
It is gruliliing (o see that onr business men nnd others from Kevidstoke,
when visiting other oities, cull at the
newspaper offices and tell them something about our city. TIibbo visits do
a whole lot of good and are good advertisements for Kevelstoke. The following appeared in the Victoria Daily
Colonist last week:
RevelBtoke is going ahead last these
days, due largely to the success which
baa attended the Iruit growing in
dustry. Mr. Lindmark, the mayor of
that thriving town, said yesterday that
it was only three or four years ago that,
tbey realized that they could grow
good Iruit, Now they havo 10,000
apple l eis planted, and the whole
industry t- lining ahead by leaps and
bounds.

ENGINEERING   FEAT
Dominion Government Columbia
Dam has Proved its Worth
Now that the river has fallen almost
to its winter level a gocd opportunity
is afforded those interested in the Columbia River and its vagaries ol seeing
just wbat effects the wing dam, con-,
strucled by the Dominion Government has on the direction ol tbe main
ennent and also on the preservation
of the banks below the dam. The
Columbia River is perhaps, of any
river in Canada, the most variable and
when the Dominion Government first
essayed the gigantic task of changing
the whole course of the river and
forcing it to cut out and flow in another
bed and channel, there were few in
Revelstoke who really believed that
tbe work oould be accomplished, in
spite of tbe fact that this was a necessary step that the Government should
take in order to facilitate navigation.
From tbe point of view ol the man in
the street the Columbia at this point
is certainly a tormidable object to
attempt to tamper with and the Dominion Government being well cognizant of this fact, nevertheless commenced operations, feeling well assured
that their efforts would prove successful. The work ol construction has
been going on ever since the first pile
was driven, without cessation, except
when the first appropriation lor tbe
work became exhausted and when tbe
heavy ice floes at tbe breaking of tbe
winter caused a big breach in the
middle cf the structure. The time
taken to effect the repairs considerably
delayed the completion of tbe dam
but tbe work was pushed ahead and
oompleted before high water tbis year.
Tbe sceptical, who claimed tbat Mr.
Aylmer, engineer of tbe work, could
never put a dam in tbat position
across tbe Columbia, and put it there
to stay, must now admit tbeir defeat.
In constructing tbe dam at tbat
angle and of tbat formation, Mr.
Aylmer claims tbst the more volume
of water flowing over it tbe more solid
and secure,and while the superimposed
weight of water tends to strengthen
the structure, it detrncts nothing trom
the volume ol tbe main current wbioh
U forced to turn off at an angle and
cut its own channel over new ground,
and moreover aids in filling up the
hollow behind the dam witb silt. Tbis
work ol natural reclamation bas been
going on ever since and tbe effects
oan now be seen.
Last year at this stage of low water
there was a large stretch of shallow
water behind tbe dam, which even
then had been filled up considerably
as compared to last year. Now the
water has almost gone and a large
bank of sand and silt deposit bas practically taken tbe place of water. Tbe
dam has effectually " changed the
course of tbe Columbia and is gradually giving us bsck land wbioh, before
the work was commenced, was ruthlessly swallowed up by the encroaching current. Tbe dam hss been put
in, and put in to stay, and Mr. Aylmer
oan have tbe satistsotion of proving
as a certainty wbat has hitherto been
considered an impossibility.

Mr. Lindmark states that Kevelstoke
strawberries got first prize at Calgary
this year, and as an example of what
can lie done, a chinaman made $1000
off un acre and a half of strawberries
this season. Ile shipped 40 boxes a
dav for five weeks, getting $2 25 a box,
and netting if lfilil). What a chinaman
can do a white man should lie stile to
accomplish.
The financial circles are showing
their appreciation of the progress of
the town in a practical way. Formerly
they had only two banks, Molson's and
the Imperial Bank, but now the Canadian Bank ol Commerce and the
Northern Crown Bank are establishing
branches."
TUBERCULOSIS MILK.
Attempt To Be Made to Weed
Out Infected Cattle.
Vancouver, Oct. 20.—A campaign
is to be waged in the province which
it is hoped will effectively weed out all
cows that may be effected with tuber,
culosis. The danger whioh attends
tbe selling of milk that might be
tainted is very great and the authorities are preparing to wage a campaign
against it.
Dr. Knight, the dairy inspector, will
shortly commence an itinerary ol lectures on this all important subject at
different points in the interior.
Tbe question of granting certificates
to milk vendors and have the names
of the holders ol these made public, is
also being considered. In this way it
is ((expected tbat farmers supplying
milk will take the precaution to have
tbe infected cows disposed of so tbst
first class certificates can be obtained.
The inspection and grsding of the
herds along this line will, it is felt,
result in sellers taking the precaution
to get rid of any cows having tuber.
oulosis as otherwise they will be tbe
losers by a falling off in custom, as no
one will purchase milk Irom an infected herd when he can bave tbe
assurance that another source of supply is pure.

Sir Thomas Shaughnessy at the

meeting, among other thing., said :
" lt is not easy to designate in advance with any degree of particularity
the purposes for which the new issue
of stock money will be nquired, ex
oept in the matter of rolling stock
In the six years, 1902 to 1908, tbere
there was an increase in year equip,
ment of 659 locomotives, 842 sleeping
cars and day ooaohes, and 26,190
freight cars, at an approxiwate cost of
937,000,000, this is equivalent to one
locomotive for every three working
days, one passenger oar for every two

years, and yet the prospects are that
within the next six weeks the demand
will be in excess of the supply ol
freight cars.

Revelstoke Conservative
Association
To  the   Electors  and   Citizens  of
Revelstoke:
The Conservative Association of Kevclstokd Riding
wisli io inform you in the inosl emphatic manner possible, that they neither as an Association or through any
individual representative, had anything whatever to do,
directly or indirectly, with lhe postponement of a Liberal
meeting; siinim med lor Tuesday, the _otb, neither have
they made any arrangement of any kind for a meeting on
tlie 271I1 instant, anil any statement to the contrary is
absolutely false and apparently circulated lo explain the
abandoned Liberal meeting of Tuesday night.
Having, however, every reason to desire a joint
meeting at some suitable date at which till parties would
have the opportunity, of expressing their views, the
Association now publicly challenges iheir opponents, if
they are acting in good faith, to appoint a committee of
three to meet and arrange with a similar committee appointed from this Association, lor such a joinl meeting.
As arranged in a proper manner, a meeting of such a
nature would no-doubt be most acceptable to the electors
and citizens of this cily.
Approved and issued by the Executive of the. Conservative Association at a meeting held this Tuesday
evening, October 20th, 1908.
