all Tuesday night and that she went
to headquarters yesterday morning to
learn where ho was.   He waa dead.

and dependable in liis work. He was
popular witii his associates and his
family relations were particularly
pleasant. Hia widow baa the eympa-

Tbe matter waa pussed over, the bylaw being read and the communication was linally filed.
From G. Lenibke, city electrician,
requesting an increase of salary. The
council lelt that they wero justified in
granting thia owing to ihe general
increase of civic employee's wages, and

Anti-Tubercolosis Society Will
Erect Home on Lovely Spot
at Kamloops Lake,
The famous Tranquille ranch, on
the north side of the eastern end ol
Kamloops lake, about nine miles Irom
Kainloups, has been definitely decided
upun as tlie site fur tbe Consumption
Sanitarium to he erected by the Antl-
Tuberculosis Society ol Britiah
Tlie property to be Hum acquired
has a frontage of one mile on Kamloops lake and the arable land, which
is of the very first vitality for general
agriculture and fruit raising amounts
to 275 aerea. Besides this there are
meadow lands of about 100 acres and
120 ncres of bench luuda. A twenty
yeur lense of 0,000 ncres of grazing
lands from lhe Dominion Government
at two cents per acre is also included.
The lower ranch produces all the
smaller fruits und has an orchard of
ten acres, which is one ol the most
famous in Canada, having distinguished itself by the receipt of hundreds of exhibition prizes Tlie place
is well stocked with cattle, lioraes and
sheep, which will yield an immediate
Tlie price to be paid for the property is $57,000, $25,000 cash and tbe
balance of $32,000 in seven yearB with
interest at 5 per cent. In the opinion
of tlie committee and the directors,
and many business men who have
been consulted, its intrinsic value as a
ranch is much greater than this, while
lor the purposes ol the society its
value ia practically inestimable and
h.irdly to be reckoned in dollars. The
luct that the land will all'urd occupation to patients to whom light,
outdoor work is ot the greatest benefit
and that lhe water supply Irom Tranquille creek, which Hows through the
property, is ample and ot tbe lirst
quality, weighed heavily in deciding
the directors.

The urgent need of a new jail in
Revelstoke, has never been so signally
demonstrsted than during the past
week or two, not because Revelstoke
contains more thun the average number ol vagrants or oi that peace disturbing element, hut because the jail,
or the tumble down shack that is an
apology (or ooc, ia absolutely unfitted
to bouse even a lew oi the toughs that
are to be lound in every community,
large or small. Rotten and unsanitary as the building is, still it has done
duty ever since Revelsloke waa a town
at all, and although representations to
the authorities have been frequently
made, especially ol late, there is never
a sign of any reparation. When the
list of police court charges, as is frequently the cn.-e is lengthy, the prisoners are herded in a few small cells,
unfit to retain an ordinary drunk, let
alone a criminal and only last week
when there were fourteen inmates, on
various charges, the jail was full ovor
aud above its legal capacity. Thnt
tbe building as a jail or luck-up is not
sale, and totally unlit to confine prisoners, desperate or otherwise, is shown
by tbe number ol escapes that have
been effected, aome in broad daylight,
aud the facilities whicli the building
atTord- i'or such.
1 be most glaring case occurred on
Thursday, when a man of desperate
character, loose and unlettered in the
jail r om, effected an escape through
a .entilat.-r in the Boor of
the eel c rrid ir, forced liis way
through ail obstructions and contrived
to get away altogether Irom the city.
If this state ol things ia ail..wed to gu
on, and tbe present jail to be still used
as a lock-up lur priaonera ol all classes
who can il they so teel inclined quietly
escape, and elude justice, then why
put the city to the expense ol helping
to support such an institution. Agi-
tation for a new jail has been made
and much talk done, but nothing else,
neither tbe government nor tbe city
making any direct move. We understand tbat the government intend
erecting a six cell luck-up at a coat of
|2,600, which eecma ridiculoualy low
lot a jail ul any use, and with limited
space the city will lie  no  better oil',
Whatever is tube dune, should he
done at once, and tlie sooner the
ptesent unsightly buildings are de
atn.yed and new unes erected the
better lor the city and the safer tor
the community. It is time that mure
eilicicnt methods were adopted for the
sale keening ol criminals and offenders
against the law and until auch have
been done, we cannot hope to atamp
out lhe criminal element which
creates hav,.c in our community and
exerts sinister Influences on Hit morals

The Fruit and Produce Exchange ol
B.C.,a new venture only recently
launched upon the commercial tide
has already made strides almost beyond expectations, uud inking into
consideration tlio difficulty in starting
such a proposition, tho promoters may
congratulate themselves on seeing thc
result ol their labors, sn eminently
successful. .Much depends on tbo
ability, energy and method ol the
secretary manager und in this oapaoity
Mr. Hi.gar has certainly ahowod
marked business ability and system.
Dr. Wade, ol the Kamloops Sentinel,
himaell a direotor of tho exchange,
aays in his columns:
"A Sentinel repiesentulivo paid a
visit lo the office of L. M. Hagar, the
energetic secretary manager of the B
0, Fruit and Produce Exchange at
Kevelstoke .... Saturday last and found
thai gentleman up to the eyes in work
receiving nrde; a for Iruit and fin in
produce (rom points within and without the province. The demand Ior
Lorries has been large and growers
huvo hnd no difficulty in pluciiig eve y
crate produced al gu.-d figures. The
den.uml fur farm produce has heen
larger thun wns :it lirst anticipated
and this department promises to l.o a
most important ono. The volume of
businesa dune during tl.e pnsl two
weeks is n practical lesson in llio value
of co-operation nnd when tbo annual
statement is prepared und published,
the public will he surprised ut lhe
enormous extent of tlie business being
handled by this central exchange.
"Mr. Hagar has devised a system tur
handling the husiness ol the Exchange
that is remarkable for its extreme
simplicity combined with thoroughness, Every detail is provided for und
with such .precision (loos the system
work uut that the volume of tfusinesa
done und the exact financial status of
the exchange can bu ascertainul at
uny time.
"The value ol the organization is
becoming widely recognised and several lucal exchanges that held aluol at
first are beginning to give sigua ol
awakening to a souse of what thoy are
missing It is not unlikely that next
aenson every local assooiation will have
thrown ils lot with the central body,
whicli will then handle the entire
output ol the province."
The paper and rubbish that is blowing around our streets these days, es
pecially in the vicinity of tlie poat
office, is an eye jsore to our citizens
nud the authorities should take steps
to remedy this. Nothing looks so unsightly and untidy as paper blowing
ahout, which not only being uf discredit to the city at large, ia moreover a source ot danger, frequently
causing horses to sliie and give trouble.
We say keep at cleaning our streets,
keep nt it bard, not only in regard to
paper and such truck, but also in
regard to cleaning up of back yards
and putting lho cily in a belter
sanitary condition.

An ordinary ihoe alter (bt moadi't wear.
Foot-rites are aa tough and stubborn as mules. They'D resist aa
much strenuous, arduous wear and tear as a mule; keep on steadily
resisting them and come up smiling eveiy time. Why? Well, shoes
are about the worst adulterated things on the market and the Foot-
rite's not adulterated. It's a simple why.
Instead ol newfandangle, brittle, sieve-like, made-over-night hemlock
tanned sole leather, cut (rom the shoulders, neck and poorest places
in the hide, Foot-rite soles are made of tough, close-grained, wear-
fighting, water-shedding, old-fashioned oak tanned cowhide, cut
(rom the "butt" or linest part of the skin.
Instead of uppers (rom among the thousand varieties of cheap and
imitation calf that looks good, but don't wear, Foot-rites are made
of "Normal-Calf," a new and exclusively Foot-rite leather almost
as soft and aupple as the live calf a skin, and as unwearoutable as a
pine knot.
Instead of cloth trimmings, Foot-rites have leather instead of snap
insoles, which won't hold stitches, Foot-rites are oak tanned atock.
Instead of weak wood arch supports that don't support, Foot-rites
have steel; instead of cloth and paste box-toes, Foot-rite Un-
collapsable Box-Toes are made of atout, rebounding leather; instead
of cotton thread, silk is used in Foot-rites; and instead of saving
75 cents per pair on cheap labor, Foot-rites are made by the most
expeniive and skilled artisans obtainable.
Then there are a lot of special devices about Foot-rite construction
that help their stubborn wcarability, such as Tough Heels,Wrinkle-
less and Cracklcsi Vamps. Unwarpable Soles, elc.
Not hard to understand why Foot-rites ue the Longest Lived
shoes, is it ?
K you want $4.00 or $5.00 worth of sound, intrinsic shoe value
(or $4.00 or $5.00 ol your hard-gotten gold, call on the Foot-rile
retailer in your tg.wn. His name's below. Youi find him as honefi
and sincere as his shoe, and always obliging. His door swings
inward but never outward to find a more welcome store. .
Anywhere in America, Canada or Great Britain—$4.00 and
$5.00.  Every Pair Goodyear Welted.

Deutschman Caves Should Attract a Large Number of
Visitors—Magnificent Scenic
No region offers a wider field for exploration than that around the glaciers
and valleys, mountain peaks and ra-
viius which nature h .a spread out in
majestic grandeur at Glacier; and within practically a few niilea from Revelstoke, some ol the moat marvellous
and magnificent scenery that can be
lound anywhere in tbe world, awaita
tlio visitor, who cannot tail to be impressed with tho sublimity ol Buch a
Biipcrb panorama. It ia not an much
ol Glacier itaell and the vicinity that
thia article will touch upon, but upon
an even moro wonderful work of
nature, far mote interesting and inspiring than tbe great lllocil.ewi.et
glacier or tbe sea ol anow capped
poaks that surround it. This wonder
of nature, ol but recent disc .very, are
tlio Deutsohman Oavea, aituated 2000
leet above the railway track. These
caves arc not like oilier cavea. They
aro hewn out ol marble by a glacial
Btreara charged with silica, whose
grinding action through countless
ages and thousands of centuries has
cut channels, vast caverns, weird and
myaterious passages which have not yet
been entered or iiiveatigated,aud which
perhapa may extend for many miles
No better instance ol water worn rock
can be seen than at these cavea, and
thc immensity of tbe work, the f.in-
taatic ehape8 carved aud worn out of
the solid marble, and above all the
contemplation of the centuries of
steady action to accomplieh suill re-
Bulta, all will appeal to even the most
unemotional. Cougar Creek, which
haa ita source in a glacial lake, fed by
mountain torrents, has for countless
ages gradually hewn out tbcac channels, appearing at intervals to the
light ot day and then disappearing
into the recesses of the earth, making
one final leap through its gloomy
canyon until it vanishes lor ever from
mortal eye, one ol tho loat rivers ol
Britiah Columbia.
The Bite of these caves is amid magnificent scenery overlooking the Illecillewaet Valley, bounded on the
north by Mt. Cheope, cut by the ailver
streaks of Bear Creek, Whistler and
Douglas Falls. To the north-weat the
Cougar glacier and field of ice and
snow, while to the eaBt Mt. Sir Donald
reara its smooth and aymmetrical
peak, looming 10,615 feet above sea
level, silently tempting those who can
come to him, while on all aides piling
to tlie clouds tbe glaciers aud peaks
ol a hundred mountains. To the
south-east lie Mts, Bonney, Glacier,
Crest and Rampart, and southward
Cougar mountain and Roas Peak rear
their shaggy summits to the heavens.
One remarkable feature is Point Look
Out, a narrow apear-like promontory
jutting over a precipice 2000 Ieet deep,
from where a magnificent view can be
obtained of the Cougar Valley, Tlie
Loop, Glacier, Rogera Pass and other
features of scenery.
In the Cougar basin where the caves
are located, tbe flora ia magnificent,
and aa Mr. Wheeler has described it
the "Botanist's Paradiae." But to
turn to the caves themselves, the discoverer, Charles Deutschman, has
made the entrances and difficult passages aa easy ot access as he can without detracting Irom the natural beauties ol the scene. Ladders and log
p'anka have been placed where necessary and every possible advantage
taken of natural bridges and ledges.
The main body ol the caves, and perhaps the most interesting are at present inaccessible to the average summer touriet owing to the fact ol tl.e
watere of Cougar Creek filling the
entrance and preventing any approach.
Mr, DeiitBchinaii intends to try and
turn the stream and so make the
main entrance fit lor anyone to go
down. It is in the big cave that the
Cougar Creek disappears for ever down
a lathomless abyss, and where some
of tho most wonderful freaks of nature
can te seen. How Iar these caves
extend is unknown, possibly the labyrinth of tortuous passages leads to a
vast underground lake. Mr, Deutschman as a guide is a wonderlul man,
enthuBiastio and willing, not only in
the caves which bear his name, but as
a host and genial compauion. The
writer has had personal experience of
this "Bcion ol the mountains," and
having spent a lew days witii him in
his lonely little cabin, full of specimens of mountain arts and crafts, has
lound him a wonderlul cook aa woll aB
au all round good fellow. Tu make
these ciivos as popular ae tlj.-y deserve

Easy ol access Irom Glacier, they
prove a splendid tourist al traction if

Glacier ia good but far too steep the
laat three milea, which can be reduced
at low coat, for until more improvements are made to bring these natural
wondera belore tlie world, one of the

tnre's handiwork will remain practically unknown to the travelling
Mention must be made ol the ..lien-
tion which tlie writer's party received
at the Glacier Houae, and at the hands
of G. 8. Flindt its genial manager, and
also to the kindness and consideration
accorded hy S. H. linker, guide and
livery proprietor. Mr. Baker baa a
large number nl saddle and pack

One ol the most important cases
arid at the same time one surrounded
with a certain air ot mystery is attracting the attention of policeNwid
public, alike and the cliain of events
whicli have followed in sequence from
tbe first act in thc drama, ull puint in
the same direction. Tho reason that
mention was not made ol tbe case in
columns of the Maii.-IIi'.uaiji lust issue
wus thnt we wished Ihe police to hnve
every cliancc of working up their evidence, which on Wednesday morning
wns cl.icily circumstantial nnd disjointed, and publicity at that time
would perhaps havejilelayed the ends nt
justice. Hut now that the case has been
iu court and the denouement whioh
followed made public property there
is no further need for secrecy. The
two men, Murphy and West, hnd
driven from tlie lower town on Saturday night in lhe Turnross had und
hud gut out nt the Union Hotel to
ptirclu.se some provisions for their
journey on No. 2 east that night.
Both men were under the influence of
liquor and as far as is known re-enter
eil the back to drive to tlie million.
Tlie driver, Lawrence, who has been
in Revelstoke but a short time nnd
bus a doubtful reputation, drove not
to the station but to tbe recreation
grounds nt tlie bottom of McKenzie
Avenue and stopped his horses. Tho
evidence, circumstantial mill otherwise shows thut he told his fare that
this wns the station. West got out
und was immediately hit on the head
with a heavy weapon, not hnrd enough
however to kill or even slim him, but
milking a misty wound. WeBt closed
witti his assailant, who eluded his
grasp and disappeared in thedaikncss,
The noise aroused Mr. llowson, who
came out and Lund West, and communicated with the residence of Police
Ollicer Terry. Just prior to tliiB Terry
had heard tlie hack drive by and later
on heard the sound ol u man run
ning down the avenue, When roused
by Howson he went up to the recreation ground uud found the buck tied
up. On making carelul examination
several shot were discovered in the
hack. Terry then hurried lo the
Union Hotel and lound the driver
looking around lor his rig declaring
that it had beeu stolen. His uctioiiB
being peculiar he waa arrested on
suspicion. Un being searched n set ol
if.l.-i- hair and beard wus discovered
on liis person. West stated that be
remembered noihing since leaving the
lower town until sandbagged and
culd nol say if Murphy had entered
tlie hack with l.i.... Both men had a
considerable sum ..I money on them.
The serious question as to what has
become ol Murphy is now occupying
the public mind and inquiries along
the line us far as liis destination
■ elicited no info, .nation. No
trace has been seen of him since entering the Union, and whether l.e was
Uiilereil before West was attacked

.-. mm ;: ight up before Police
'.; .. •   tte Pinkbam on Wednesday,
his room, The plug and never.il shot
arc now in the possession of the police
being found in tlie hack. A peculiar
feature ol tbe ease is lhat C. Turnross
lelt the town on Monday night. Many
(nets which hnve u sinister look are
connected with this cuss und no ell'ort
or expense should be spared to bring
the fugitive to justice. It is now up
to the provi. ci 11 uml city authorities
to take active and immediate ste|is to
recapture thc prisoner, Lawrence, alius
McLauchlin alias Brandon, who being
at large and armed will he a hard nut
to crack, and the cilizens would be
quite billing to atand any share ol the
expense to aid iu bringing tin. prisoner
uguin to juit ice.
A Cfise of tliis description should
not be dropped until everything has
been done to probe into it, and I lie
people nuw look to ilic provincial and
city authorities to lose no time in
getting to work nnd locating the
prisoner. On going to press no word
hns been received and tlie man Law
rer.ee is et ill nt large. It will he in
teres!ing to note thut the prisoner ut
one time was a waiter in a local hotel
nnd wus lired fir breaking inlo the till.
