charged, and to the satisfaction ol the
council proved, that Dr. William H.
Wilson, of Nelson, had in an unlit
c indition attended a case of confinement in which the patient died, bis

Dr. Wilson has been practising for 10
years in British Columbia. The
council called in Judge Grant as
arbitrator to assist them in arriving
at a decision.
The Council also heard tbe appeal
of four visiting doctors from Manitoba
and Alb6rta for an inter-provincial
association to consist of representatives of the four provinces of British
Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba, under whom a common
standard of qualification for medical
practice Bhould obtain. Tbey suggested a joint board of examiners to

Twenty-Six Thousand Men Are
Out With Others Ready to
Join the Ranks-Union Must
Be Recognized
I'rrrsiiiiiii, July 10. l-'ive thousand
men from the Compressed Steel Company's plant, nnd 8,000 tin plato
workers went out on strike to-day.
Eight thousand miners also struck
this morning, but they did bo without
the sanction of the exeoutlve  who
culled the strike oil' to-night to allow
negotiations for settlement to be carried on. The men who are out on
strike say it is noi so much a quest ion
of wages with them as the recognition
of the unions by the employers,
Two wagon loads of bed cots and
other supplies were taken into' the
Steel Company's plant this morning to
be used by the constabulary. The
groups of idle men have increased so
much that an order had to be given to
clear the streets. The constabulary
bore down ou the men and scattered
the strikers in nil directions.
Aboul fifty electricians employed I y
the Westinghouse company doing
work iu the Compressed Steel Company's plant walked out to-day.

section ol the main line ol the Grand
Truuk Pacific railway from McLeod
river west to Tete Jaune Cache, fifty
miles bayond the Yellowhead pass,
through the Rockies, has been awarded to the contraotin?, .irm ot Messrs
Foley, Welch & Stewart.
The same firm recently completed
the construction of tbe 130-mile section from Edmonton to the Mcleod
river. Track-laying is now in progress west ol Edmonton, and by the
end of September a passenger and
freight service between Winnipeg and
MoLeod river will be inaugurated.
It is expected that the contract just
awarded will be completed in twelve
months. TLe region to be traverted is
a foothill country not unlike tlie
tract lying between Calgary and the
Rockies. The grade through the Yellowhead pass at the summit and
down the woBtern slope past Tete
Jaune Cache ami thence on to the
oast is lour-teuths ol one per cont
per mile. Tho Yellowhead pass is the
dividing line between Alberta and
British Columbia.
The railway contractor havo already begun to transfer tlieir outfits
to the country beyond the MoLeod
river, where actual grading is now
under way. Tho work will be rushod,
and lor nearly a year probably 1000
men will be busily employed. Camps
are being established all along the

Five Girls Drowned
File New Westminster girls were
drowind at a picnic party at Aliceville
ou Bu.-urd lulet, uear Port Moody,
on Wednesday afternoon. Their names
were Geitrude Ankers, Annie and May
Murphy, Signe Buck and Alfbild
Paulsen. The live girls went into
bathe at a place a little apart from the
rest. They Btepped off a ledge into
deep water, and Signe Buck waB the
first to get beyond her depth. The
other girls rushed down to assist her
and each in turn became overwhelmed.
A sixth child, another ol the Murphy
girls, saved herself by a miracle.
Friends ol the girls on the bank being
uuable to swim could render no assist,
ance, and when some ot the boys of the
party were summoned ft was too late,
The newB aroused tbe deepest sorrow
in New Westminster. Miss Ankere
was a teacher in theSapperton school,
the Murphy girls were daughters ol J.
E. Murphy, a milk dealt r in south
Westminster, Mias Buck wan a daughter uf tbe Dominion (ire ranger, and
Miss Paulsen was the daughter ol the
postmaster at Timberland.
Murdered at Night
In a boat at night, out un the
ruddy waters of the Fraser, near
Steveston, F. Saleterious, an uld Greek
fisherman, on Thursday last, stabbed
to death his partner and countryman
Tommy Jordan. From the appearance
ol tbe boat and Jordan's body it looked
sh il he had been first stabbed through
tbe thigh with a fisherman's knife,
and had fought for his life until
weakened by loss of blood, he feh back
in the boat a corpse. Other Greek
fishermen hoard the noise of tho light
and rowed through the darkness toward the boat. Salcterious jumped
overboard and tried to swim away, but
was hauled aboard lighting desperately. They had to tic him down with
ropes iu order tc row him in salety to
Steveston where he wsb handed over
to the police.
Jordan was still living whon first
found, but tlicd on the way to Steveston, antl as Sulcicrious refuses to speak
a wind, the cause ol the deadly quarrel
cannot be ascurtained. From latest
advices Salcterious was still maintaining a Biillen reserve.
Ascend Mount Revelstoke
The tint large party to ascend
Mount llevelsloke and visit Victoria
park this season went up on Thursday
last under the guidance ol the Rov. J.
R. Robertson, he being tho only one
of the number who hsd gone up previously. The party comprised three
gentlemen and twelve ladies. All
went on loot, Tho start was made at
li in tbe morning and the summit was
reached at noon. Some of the ladies,
who had done no mountaineering be
lore found the climb rathee trying,
but all managed to reach the park.
There they lound a lew hanka t;I Bnow
but many llowers wero coming into
bloom. Rev. Mr. Robertson thinks
tho park will beat its best next week.
The party stayed on the summit about
four hours, and starling tho descent
at I p.m. reached town again about
H o'clock. All to whom it had been a
firsl experience exproasod themselves
delighted with Hie trip.

Rockies ami Iill every valley in
liritish Columbia," This is not
the vision of an enthusiast or a
dreamer, lt is a plain statement
of something Unit must come in
the logical sequence of events. The
activities and desires of humanity
know iit) bounds, Having tickled
the prairie and seen it laugh witli
a harvest, they will seek something
more restful in the smiling valleys
beyond the great divide. Their
plates will he taken by newcomers
from Uu' east and south, and the
prairie farmer will become the or-
chardist or dairyman of the valleys
of Uritish Oolumbia.
The Interior Department is to be
congratulated on its foresight in
preparing for the inrush I hnl is
sure to coiiie, and if, ns has been
stated, it is their intention to survey and divide tlie land in IU acre
homesteads, that also would he a
movement that would meet with
general commendation. To the

anglers of this district will prove
themselves willing lo forego a
present pleasure for a future good,
by not interfering with the natural
increase of the new stock.
The recent disastrous accident
on llie C.I'.R., near Rogers puss, is
another illustration of the law of
compensation working itself out.
While there is always a tendency
to lay the blame on someone, the
fact remains that as long as there
are railways there will be railway
accidents, lt is true that these
may be and are being lessened with
care and tlie applications of improved safety appliances, but with
an increasing volume of trallic on
the line, the human desire to travel
at highest speed, and the necessity
of competition wbioh makes il incumbent on railway companies to
comply with this desire, we cannot on tbis side of the milleniuui
look for the elimination of railway
fatalities; though tbe example of
Great Britain shows that with
double tracks, improved roadbeds,

there may lie a welcome decrease

Wc must stand ready to prove it and
also prove that the difference is so marked, so
worth while, that you will feel this is the flour
you ought to use.
That is exactly where we do stand.
We ask you to take no lisk. Buy a
bag of ROBIN HOOD and give it two
fair trials. If it does not prove perfectly satisfactory, so satisfactory that you too say, "It is
really the llour that is different," you may take
it to your grocer and he will give you back

San Francisco Opera Company
Prank W. Henly's San Francisco
Opera Company has just Oompleted
une hundred nnd sixty-one cmisccu
tive weeks if BUCOesB—a record not
equalled or even approached by any
comic opera organization in existence.
Not even the famous Busttininns can
boast ol such a record, the company
laying oil' during the summer months.
This summer the San Francisco Opera
Company is playing a season ol 12
tveekB at the Empress theatre at Vancouver, B.C. The lourth week ol the
engagement finds capacity houses at
every performance. Read what the
Vancouver World ol Monday, July
Oth, 1909, had to say of the company:
Of all the mirth-provokers which
the San Francisco Opera Company
bave gladdened Vancouver by putting
on at the Empress the "Gay Paris
ienne" is surely the chief It is to
laugh, which is to Bay that it is to
chortle over jokes that are clever, and
to guffaw over jokes tbat are farcial.
In " The Gay Parisienne" there is not
the slightest opportunity lor the
grouchtr to grouch or the mirthless
man to cultivate dolor. The" Gay
Parisienne" is a winner.
Miss Mabel Day, as "The Giy Parisienne," has a part in which fine
quality of voice and her dainty aud
vivacious style are admirably in place.
Chiel am ug the lunniakers wus Teddy
Webb, who seemed to revel in the
part ol "Ebentzer Honeycomb." The
elements of mirth in the character of
the cleiic, who, as the pink ol pro-
pr.ety at home, but a sad dog abroad,
are simply illimitable, and Teddy
Webb seemed to catch every one ol
tbem. His mock solemnity, and tbe
clever vocalization of Miss Day in tbe
duets, made a tine combination, and
as tbe Scotsman of comic opera in the
second act. Teddy Webb was all
A remarkably funny plot, plentifully
interspersed with the most up-tu date
song selections, set the audience in a
high state ol enthusiasm, it is no
misstatement to say lhat ihis performance aud production was equal to
any that we have had the past winter
Irom travelling companies specially
organized to present one musical
comedy. The laughter was c utinu-
ous, and only gave way to applause
when the magnificent stage effects
were shown, and tbe novelties in songs
were heard. "Shine On, Harvest
Moon," as Bung by Lucille Palmer,
accompanied by the chorus, received
repeated encores. This Bong wns
illustrated by a line mechanical effect.
A large moon waB suspended from the
top ol the theatre, and at a certain
cue an owl was seen sitting on it and
blinking. This was an exceedingly
pretty efiect, and is the invention ol
Mr. Frank Ooates, head of the stage
stall ol the Empress theatre. Teddy
Webb sings several Bongs, and scored
an enorinoiiB bit in one of Harry
Lauder's Bongs, "She's My Daisy," accompanied by the female chorua
dressed iu Scotcli kilts. lt ssell
Powell Bang one one ol the song hits,
'■ 1 Think 1 He r a Woodpecker
Knocking at My Family Tree." TheBe
are only a lew of tlie gems. In fact,
all the numbers were so excellent that
it is almost impossible to specialize.
"Shine On, Harvest Moon," was one
of the biggest successes in Anna
Held's late production of " Miss I nno-
ceuce,"in New York. Another tremendous Biiccess was the Bung. I'd
Rather Fight Like Ma." This number wa. a spirited march song, during
which the chorus performed several
dillicult march evolutions. It was
certainly an evening of great success
for the Empress theatre, and the San
Francisco Opera Co., as the comedy
scored an enormous hit.
Brother followed Brother
The people ol Calgary were saddened laBt week by the death of two of
their oldest and must prominent citizens. First came the news that James
Reilly, formerly proprietor of the
Royal Hotel, and twice Mayor of the
city bad passed away on tbe Pacilic
coast. Mr. Reil y was one ol the best
known men in the Canadian Northwest, haviug been the lather ol the
movement for provincial autonomy
in the Northwest Territories. He waB
prominent in civic, Masonic and political circles, having unsuccessfully
contested Calgary lor the Dominion
house in 1800. Of late years he had
been living in retirement. His funeral waB attended by all the most prominent citizens of Calgary.
It was a sad coincidence of James
Reilly's deatb that his brothor William
also died while the an alignments for
the funeral of James Reilly wore still
under way, He waB apparently in
good health, but the arrival ol his
brother's remains on No. 2 Irom the
west in the afternoon gave bim a
shock from which he never rccovored
and he died of heart failure a lew
hours later.
A scctiouman was killed near Shu-
swap on Thursday nighi by a slight
accident by which i. car  was derailed.

And Its Keeping Qualities
SOME people find it necessary to buy a considerable quantity
of flour at one time—sufficient to last  for a long period.
Naturally they are anxious to procure a flour of the kind best
adapted to lengthy storage.
There are two important reasons why PURITY FLOUR
possesses these qualities. One is that it is made entirely from
Manitoba Hard Wheat. The other lies in the fact that the careful
milling necessary to produce "Purity" absolutely excludes all
low-grade particles of the wheat berry. It's the high grade
Manitoba Hard Wheat Flour that keeps—stands longest storage.
That's  "Purity."
"Purity" flour may cost a little more,
but is more  than worth the  difference.
Try it.    Watch results both for quality
and yield.

Another "Sunshine" Feature
This ii an entirely new idea, and wilt especially interest people who reside in natural
gas districts. The gas ring takes the place
of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus making
it possible to burn jjas in your furnace without
inconvenience. Such is not possible in a
furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;
for, should the gas give out, a coal or wood
fire could not be started until the gas pipes
were disconnected.
To provide against sweating in the summer
time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped with a
nickelled steel radiator and dome. All
bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods
copper-plated. This special treatment, besides meaning quicker and greater radiation
from the radiator and dome than cold chill
Iron could possibly give, acts as protection
for the bolts, rivets and rods from inroads of
gas. When cast iron comes in contact with
our nickelled steel it is coated with our special
Anti-Rust treatment, which prevents the
slightest possibility of rust commencing
anywhere in Sunshine Furnace.

A Vancouver despatch says: There
is little change in the lumber and
shingle market. Business continues
good iu sliinglcs antl in the higher
grades ul lumber. Kough is still selling at prices which admits ol little or
no | rolit. The local trade is unusually brisk. The basic price ol lumber
is nuw 111, and thero is no pool iu
this. The spring supply of logs has
invaded the market and there has
been a slump of from $_2 to $2 50, and
good grades can now lie got as low as
e}li. This slump is not caused by any
diminution in the demand from the
mills, which is greater now than a
lew mouths ago, but from the fact
that there has been a great inciease in
tho output ol logs.

The stntV of the MAIL-HlCltALli were
on Thursday entertained to five o'clock
tea, by their colleague Harry Anderson of the mechanic 11 department.
He brought along a pail ol strawberries, everyone a prize winner, and a
sealer of milk, all cream. The milk
was the product ol Revelstoke grass
assimilated by a Jersey cow, and the
berries came from Mr. Anderson's own
garden. Harry's guests were of the
opinion lhat iih long as Revelstoke
could produce within itself articles of
suob prime quality, it could hold its
own with any place as a self-Hustainer.
In spite of the fact that free transportation for a Revelstoke mineral
exhibit at tho Seattle lair has linen
ott'eied by the Dominion and local
governments, no samples have yet
been left with the government agenl
at, the courthouse tu bo sent on. Own
ers of claims in this district should
certainly wake lip, They will never
have a better opportunity to display
their wares at no cost to themselves,
If they believe they lune a goud thing
they should let the world know it, and
moreover if tbey have any public
spirit they should show it by their
willingness tdadvertise the resources
ot the district. There is yet time between now and the 25th to get in
samples and make up an exhibit.
lt is uow stated on what appears to
bu fairly good authority that the C.P
R, will build a Hue on the eaBt side ol
the Kraser river canyon Irom Cisco to
Agassi/.. Cisco is about six miles
below Lytton, and it is at this point
that the C P.R, crosses trom the east
side to the westsideof the Fraser. The
new line would leave the main line at
tbe entrance of the bridge and follow
the east side of the river somewhere
along the remaius of the old Carit.no
road crossing to the main line again
at Agassis. The object would be to
secure a lower grade through the canyon and save expense in haulege. The
Canadian Northern railway has already had plans approved lor the
same route, hut it is claimed that the
C.P R. is ready to go right on and
build. If it did so it would shut out
any other railway company from
building through that part.

on Thursday night played lacrosse.
In the baseball game the empyoyed
boys had it all theij own way, score
standing 11 to 4 in their lavor.
In the lacrosse match thu employed
boys alao won but by the narrow
margin ol 10. The schoolboys certainly showed I'm? play, and spectators declared it was as good a game ol
lacrosse as they had seen this season.
The employed boys were rather too
heavy for their opponents, but the
achool lads playetl swiftly anil with
good combination, but never succeeded in landing it iu the net. Some of
the smallest boys, such as Arnold Mc
Carter, darted around in chained
lightning style, and iheir play won
general admiration. The match was
ut. least so even that the schoolboys
might turn the loiluncs ol war in
another trial.
