Victoria, B.C., Aug. al—British Columbia is now in a position to proceed
with the administration of water
rights in the railway belt through a
transfer of pa|>ers just effected be -
tween thc Dominion and provincial
governments,
J.B. Shallies, federal superintendent
of water powers, and S.J. Robinson,
assistunt secretary to the minister of
the interior, were despatched here by
Hon. W.J. Roche, iheir mission being
to put the provim-e in a position to
control and administer the railway belt
Water rights.
Immediate steps will be taken to
make a thorough investigation of all
disputed rights, the water board leaving here within a few weeks on an ex.
tensive itinerary of interior points.
A tentative agreement has aLo been
effected 'between the two governments
for co-operation in hydrographic Bur-
vey work. This will mean that systematic and reliable hydrographic
work in British ('olumbia will probably  be carried out   under one head.

The newly sleeted olllcers then went
inlo evec.ilive session and transacted
niwe'h  important busiii"-H
Dream >d of, talked of, hoped for for
years, it's underway at last, and it is
going to be a credit to. those who advocated it, tho board who fostered ii
aud the city which is building it.
.   A detailed deBi ription could not   be
al tempted,   but a general  account  of  a
few of the prominent features might
help to arouse a curiosity and provoke
an interest which bas probably lagged.
If you go along Third street you will
Hnd the foundation already laid upon
the site of lhe old Presbyterian church
Upon this fouudatian will be erected a
building of six rooms, two of which
will be basement rooms, of these, one
will be used for the teaching and practical work of Domestic Science and the
other will be equipped for teaching
Physical Science und Chemistry. Sei -
ence to be practical must be practical
throughout, und anyone who has ever
sivn the resources at hand in the present building must have asked himself
how success wns ever attained there.
This will be corrected in the now.
| The next Hoor will bedevoted to the
high school classes as existing at present and provides also a principal's
room where teachers may relax and
school business be transacted.
The up|)cr floor will provide for the
new commercial course which is to be
installed at onoe  and    where   students
! who wish to enter business1 life may receive training without leaving town.
This is the pioper idea at last. Tho
buy starting professional life has hitherto had all the chance and tho parent
wishing to give his children a business
training has had to send them elsewhere and pay his school taxes here be
sides.
There will be au extra class room on
this floor to provide for future eUarge-
ment of the high sehool attendance necessitating an extra teacher. On this
Hoor too will be another teachers'
loom and a library where books of reference may be kept and a stude'nt may
write essays with all necessary data
at his hand or do any research work
he may be called  upon to perform.
Two special features of tbe school will
be the equipment and sanitary arrange
ments. Tlie domestic science depart -
ment will Ik' as complete as modern ap
plian.es can make it, and both public
and high school girls will receive this
very necessary training. The physical
and cbemlcali labratory will be ti.inish
Bd with sinks, tnps, fume closet.', and
all apparatus necessary to good practical work. Th.- commercial department will also have its full equipment
to ensure      good    up-lo-date    business
trainiim. The heating and ventilating
apparatus too, is of the besl.
i Whal will diflerentiate tliis school
from all others in the province however
is the sanitary accommodations. Tli •
idea originated with Mr. T. Kilpat -
rick of the school board, and has been
approvedof by the department. A, cord
ing lo thi-e arrangement each room will
provide separate cloa'i rooms, wash
rooms, drinking fountains and levator
ieB for both boys and girls. This is
an entirely new system an.i promises
lo work out well.

W. H. HOROBIN
ALDERMAN
FOR WARD 3.
Our readers will note that Mi. W.
H. Horobin ha- been returned unopposed to fill the vacancy on the city
council caused by the resignation of
Alderman O.W. Abrahamson in Ward
Three. We believe that Mr. Horobin
will make a good alderman, and are
glad of this opportunity to congratulate him on ilh' honor which hi- fellow
■ iti.e-ns  have conferred  upon him.
It 1- a healthy sign when the younger businessmen commence to take an
active Interest In civi. affair-, and we
hope that others ofthe das- who are
the ri-ing hopes of Revelstoke, will
follow suit and be ready to devote a
lil lie of their time and en.rgyto the
scrvi.* of our city and district.
ed in this fine game, but it is loubliul
if Revelstoke can produce a puir of
equal merit to those who contested the
game, others think that Bet/, an I Reynolds would have put up a game which
would have taken any pair ot the vis-
iteei-s all their time to win.
li will be noticeable from ihe pr./..:-
list given below that out of 'JI prizes
given no fewer than 15 were taken by
the visitors. This is nol a regrettable
circumstance in nny Community of
sporfsnu n, because the lirst principle of
all sport is to give each competitor the
besl possible i han v, and it this is done
the best man should win. It may be
further explained by the fact that those
who are enthusiastic enough to visit
a town at -one d'lstanoe, and ni considerable expense- may be assunu'd to lie
doing So because thay are players above the ordinary rank and cons'quent-
ly when compared with the members
of a local club ih'ie performance1! are
of a higher grade an 1 as a result they
win  the prizes.
We I'Xtend our congratulations to
the lo.al winners Messrs, Bel/, Monk,
anil Girard. The former is of course,
well known to us all aB a tennis player
of repute far Ijeyond the confines oi
this city. He has played at various
tournaments  in this country and   has

DISCUSS
ORIENTAL
LABOUR
Ladnor, Aug. 'J—Tlie Royal Commission on Labor held a Bitting yester
day, when Mr. H.H. Bell-Irving, Jr.,
of the A.b.C. Cuiuiery; Mr. J.A. Williamson of the Fish Products Company, antl Oscar Etroth, a Swoilish
fisherman, testified.
Orientals control so much ot the
fishing industry, according to Mr. Bell
Irving, because they are willing to
work whether ba'd or'good catches are
being made, He said the white men
wanted to see llle 'amount of the Japanese' returns! before fishing, ami would
not go out in their boats when tho
cat' lies were ,poor.
| With Oscaz Blrolh, Mr. Irving ar-
gued for a bounty on seals, which the
former doclaro 1 devoured more mil-
iti.en iiiiii ially than were caught by the
fishermen. Mr. E troth stiggeJU-d a
rale of 2.ri cents a fl*"h as proper pay
■for salmon by the canneries.
, Mr, Williamson said that the- white
nicn in liis company's employ icceiveil
2.'i conlR per hour antl board, while the
Chinese were pai I at the rate of 20
cents por hour. Two engineers received *t"i cents per hour and board,
Next September the commission will
pro'ceil to Fort Q-eorge via Edmonton
They will return over lhe Ashcroft
trail, and hold their final sitting, in
Victoria.

OUawn, Aug. ."J—Tin- number ot inquiries in Aiistrulia from Canada regarding th-.' question ol rural credit „a
it operates, undor thc government sys-
tcin in tlie c.iniiiionwi'iilih has resulted
In a report mi the euljject being sent
tn die trades nnd commerce department hy D.H. Ross, commissioner at
Melbourne. The report stays ihat the
Australian states have established systems under which l.niin'ial assistance
is rendered to farmers. The funds for
tho purpose of making advances are
generally raifted by the siate irovern -
mints through the issue of Inscribed
sioek, mortgnjrc bonds or us invest -
ments made by the state savings bank
In the majority of the states the borrower must bpg.in to pay oil the principal five years after the loanha3 bei'ii
made in half yearly installments ex -
tendinu' over a period of from 20 to
31 years, but advances may ucnoral -
ly lio paid at any time by arrange -
ment or at the option of the borrower
The administration of the advances to
farmers is carried out under acts passed in eaeh state by trustees appointed by the' states governments for that
purpose. The lotal amount advanced
throughout the commonwealth inoreai
ed from $2,869,855 an L908 to $46,816,-
f,30 in l'.M2. Considering the magnitude ol the advances the arrears In
principal nnd interest are small and
rarely has recourse to be made to a
foreclosure  or a mortgage.
Fiauo   Certificates
Going Past..
A private letter, recehed at the
naval department in Ottawa, from
British Columbia, discloses tho fact
that thc deputy minister of naval affairs Mr. J.G. Desbarnts, who travelled to the Pacific const with Hon. J.
1). Hazen, was tho hero of an exciting
rescue from drowning at Banff. Mr.
Desbarats plunged into a lake thero
and rescued a 15-year-old lad who wa<
sinking in deep water. Tho rescuer,
who was strolling in the vicinity at
the time, heard the boy's shouts, and
without waiting to throw ofl his coat
plunged into the lake and after great
ditllciilty brought the youth to land.
Mr. Desbarats will probably be recom
mende-l for a Royal Humane Society
modal.

The Gurney-Oxford
i.« ei—\
£1
Why it ic tne Best Range Procurable
It stands to reason that the
foundry of national reputation
for its equipment of the most
notable hotel, restaurant, and
institutional kitchens throughout the Dominion, also makes
the best range on the market
for the home kitchen.
This Gurney-Oxford range is
the result of over seventy years'
experience and experimental
study of improvements to
benefit the woman who toils
in the kitchen
Even Bakings
By means of a Divided Flue
Strip, the heat is divided evenly
over the top and down the back
and sides of the oven. A pan
of biscuits in the front and
back of the oven will brown
with perfect evenness without
having to change their places
many times during the baking.
The two back lids of the range
also receive an equal cooking
heat that will boil two kettles
at the same time.
Perfect Control
The entire range is controlled
practically by one handle,
called the Economizer. It
turns around a series of six
notches to determine the exact
degree of heat required. Such
control saves time, fuel and
labor.
Saving of Fuel
Then again the special Reversible Grate saves coal bills
by burning the coal to a fine
white ash. No unburnt coal
can lodge in the rounded corners of the firebox.
It's Sanitary Too
Its smooth, clean top is polished and requires no black
lead.
The Gurney-Oxford is " different " from all other ranges-
its exclusive devices make an
irresistible appeal to every
woman.

COURT   OF   REVISION
Corporation of the City of Revelstoke
TAKE NOTICE THAT :
(i) Pursuant to Local Improvement Boulevard Assessment By-law, No. 134, of 1909,
the Council of the Corporation of the City of Kevelstoke undertook the construction as a local improvement of certain boulevards on the following streets in the City of Revelstoke:—McKenzie
Avenue from the North side of Third Street to the North side of Eighth Street *, on both sides of
Third Street; on both sides of Fourth Street; on both sides of Fifth Street and on both sides of
Sixth Street, from the Hast side of McKenzie Avenue to the Wesl side of Vernon Avenue and on
both sides of Douglas Street from King Street, West, to the Canadian Pacific Railway right-of-way;
but said works contemplated by said By-law were only constructed in part:
(2) The cost of ihe said work so constructed in pari is $4,387.34 and by said By-law the
whole of the cost of said work was directed to be paid by the owners of the property benefitted by
said works and the special rate per loot frontage under said By-law was lixed at 0.79 cents, and the
special assessment thereunder was directed to be paid in twenty annual instalments :
(3) The Council of said Corporation having declared that they deem it inadvisable to
complete said works so constructed in part have, pursuant to Section 162 of ihe Municipal Act,
passed a By-law known as " Local Improvement Boulevarding Assessment Amendment By-law,
No. 1.S6, of 191,11" providing for the making of an assessment upon the lands benefitted by said
works so carried out in part such assessment being based on the amount expended (inclusive of all
incidental expenses) on the works so constructed and on the proportionate amount of benefit accruing
to each section or parcel of land within the area benefitted and for amending the ojiginal By-law by
readjusting the assessments thereunder and by providing for the levying and collecting of the deficiency (if any) in the basis of such readjusted assessment and for refunding by payment in cash or by
credit on future assessments any taxes imposed and collected under tlie original By-law (in excess
of ordinary taxes) in respect of any lands not benefitted by the said works so carried out in part and
the excess collected (if any) in respect of any lands which have been benefitted in a less degree than
was originally contemplated and have annexed to said amending By-law a schedule marked "B"
shewing the lands which have been benefitted by thc construction in part of said works (which By-
I law and schedule "B" are on file and open for inspection by every interested party at the office of
'the City Clerk at the City Hall, Revelstoke, B. C.) and which schedule shews the land owned by the
several persons assessed and which have been benefitted by the said works so carried out in part and
'which are affected by said readjusted assessment:
(4) The special rate per foot frontage imposed by said amending By-law is $1.08 and the
'special assessment imposed thereunder is to be paid in sixteen (id) annual instalments:
(5) A Court of Revision will be held on the 1 2th day of September, 191,-5, at .S o'clock,
ip.m., at the City Hall, Revelstoke, B. C, for the purpose of hearing complaints against thc pro-
! posed readjusted assessments or the accuracy  of frontage measurements and  any  other  complaint
which persons interested may desire to make and which is by law cognizable by thc Court.
Dated August 20th, 191;,.
