PROGRESS
A Review of Year 1908-
Development on all Sides-
Civic Imptovements—More
Energy Needed.
Another year has come ami gone.
As is customary let tnat which has
passed lie looked over and the various changes which have taken
place noted. In making the retrospect there is no one who will deny
that Revelstoke has more than ful-
lilletl llie expectations of even ibe
most sanguine of her citizens uml
there are few who will contradict
the statement that the year l'JOS
has been one of undoubted prosperity and improvement, in spite
of the dark days when under the
inlluence of the C. P. R. strike and
financial tightness put a baron the
onward march of unsullied progress. Revelstoke is growing very
rapidly and this fact can easily be
seen and substantiated by a walk
round the city, when   evidences of
J?fttk«tMWWBB|»riWl» «'ld .JPUni-l
cipal improvements cannot fail to
he noticed. While there has been
no particular addition to the business blocks yet there has heen a
general tendency lo improve and
enlarge, which will show that progress and prosperity  is   prevalent.
Important municipal improvements have been carried out; such
as cement sidewalks, boulevards,
improvement on it lame scale to
the city recreation grounds, fair
grounds, streets, sidewalks, etc., all
denoting a spirit of development
and enterprise wbicli is a dominant feature of the spirit of the age
in the West.
As further evidence of Revelstoke's progressiveness in 15)08, let
the amount of real estate that has
changed hands be considered, and
the extensive opening up of agricultural areas in close proximity to
the city, which will, in due course,
return value a hundred fold for
money invested.    ,
Civic administration has been
carried out on a better basis than
formerly aud tlie taxpayer has been
considerably relieved of his burdens. As a city we have increased,
our population is growing, and
with that growth will havo to come
increased facilities for handling it.
Education is one of our primary
factors and the need of another
school building is badly felt.    Thi;
to succeed we must, shake off our
'insetting sins—internal friction
which is a disgrace to the comnuiu-
itv, discordant strife aud a sen-e
of self complacency, and we must
endeavor to start afresh unhampered by such indignities.
The past year has shown progress and on looking over the
records of 190IS we have every rea
son to be proud of our work. It is
not for us to rest upon our laurels,
we have no right to imagine tbat we
are favored of Heaven above other
localities in the Kooicnnys, ilian
WO have to think that by lying in
nu inert heap between llie shafts
we can keep our waggon rolling
Let lhe motlo for 1909 bu: li io i,
boost; don't knock.

to take too much for granted, the
destiny of our city. We are all
inclined to sit down and rely upon
our head and favorable situation to
pull   us   through  and it i.s a mis-
two years, civil and astronomical, the
lutter being similar to our year. Tbis
system bus prevailed for over 4,000
years. The civil year is of 12 lunar
months, but another is accordingly
added by the astronomer at l'ekin.

Conservative Convention
The annual meeting ol the I'liivineial CoiiBervutivo Association will be
beld in Victoria on Saturday, Jan. 211
Tnis convention was to have been
held at Kamloops, but Conservatives
ol lhat city waived tbeir rights in
order • that certaiu mattors can be
taken up which could not bo very
well discussed at Kaniloops. The
following bave been appointed local
delegates to titteinl the convention
Messrs. A. J, MeDonell, W. W. Foster,
W. A. Sturdy, ll .1. McHorlcy, J. O

are as follows; Messrs. T. J. Wailnan,

Kincaid, N. Abrahamson, F. Voting,

i gates will also attend from lllecillewaet, Camborne, Ueatou and Arrow-
much to do Uiis year and if wc arc head
neighborhood lhal has not the
energy to get up and within Us
own territory answer the crow of
more euergetic, harmonious and
wide awake neighbors, llevelsloke
bas let one or two opportuniues
slip by it during the past year and
it should make us doubly careful
during the one before us. We must
advertise; the name of our city
could very easily be upon the
tongues of thousands thia year.
We should do all in our power to
encourage industries and welcome
new business instiiutions. An
evidence of the solidarity of our
business here and ol the unlimited
possibilities of expansion are instanced by the establishment of the
Bank of Commerce and a branch
of tbe Swift Packing Co., both institutions having very good reasons
for opening up here. General progress is the key note of the city
internally, the fraternal societies,
churches, and other benevolent institutions all show a marked intense over last year.
The first Fair was an unqualified
success and the advantage now
gamed must not be lost.    We have

all sections of H. C. The Victoria
Colonist says:
•'One of the important matters
which the Railway Commission
will have to consider at its forth-
coining meeting in this city is the
question of the rates on fruit from
this district lo the prairie provinces. The subject was alluded
to at the annual meeting of the
Victoria Fruit Growers' Association
nnil wc are glad to note that it
will receive the attention it deserves al. lhe hands of a strong
committee of that organization."
Many of the interior Boards of
Trade have taken the matter up
iiini il is probable tbat the Railway
Commission will have a considerable amount of data  handed  iulo
them from concerted action   by   B. gy p ■*________! T     til fS If* l_fO
C. boards, proving that the question lit Wit N I      BLU ll HO
of bettor rates is a serious  one.
The following lisi us tn bow to act
in case of u lire and iu any like eincr-
I'.'ii''. uiaj I....'. use to some who ar..
doubtful Us 'o know what to do:
lu ease of lire, if the burning urticles
are at ouce splashed and sprayed with
h solution of salt and nitrate of ani-
iin'iiia un incombustible coating is
formed. This is a preparation which
oan be made at home at a trilling cost
and should be kept on bund. Dissolve
twenty pounds of common sail und
ten pounds of nitrate ot ammonia in
seven gallons of water. Pour this into
i|iturt bottles of thin glass and lire
grenndes are at hand ready for use.
These bottles must be tightly corked
and sealed to prevent evaporation, and
in case of lire they must be thrown
near the Humes, so us to break and
liberate the gas contained, At least
two dozen of these bottles ihould lie
ready ior an emergency.
In this' connection it is well In remember lhat water on burning oil
scatters tho Humes, but that Hour will
extinguish it. Suit thrown upon u
fire, if the ohimney is burning, will
deaden tbe blaze. If u lire once gets
under headway unl prompt exit becomes n necessity, a silk handkerchief
dipped in water and wrapped about the
mouth und nostrils will prevent .suffocation Irom smoke; (ailing this, a
piece of wet flannel will answer.
Should smoke Iill the room, recall
your physics—remember thut smoke
goes lirst to the top of the room and
last to the Hour. Wrap a blanket or
woolen garment about you, with the
wet cloth over your face, drop on your
hands und knees and crawl to the
window, iiear in mind that there is
no more danger in getting down from
u threo-story window than from the
lirst Moor if you keepal'uni hold ol
the rope or ladder. I>.> not slide, but
go bam' over band.

FAVORED CENTRE
Mountains are Good Assets to
Revelstoke
The kitiactiomi which ReveUtnke
offers tu tourists arc many and inter
oeting. Tlie grand old mountains of
ours offer exceptional advantages tt
tourists of all kinds, seekers after
health, pleasure and game. We do
not yet realize our advantages in Ibis
direction and what a big asset wc have
and wbat it is going to bring us in tbe
future. We are centred in the play
ground ol the continent—what a
chance for mountaineering. SwiUcr
land, wbicb extracts many millions of
dollars from tourists annually, is
nowhere beside ub Tbe people of
thia city would do well to support the
local mountaineering club, which will
l<e largely instrumental in attracting
visitors here.
SPORTING NOTES
The Winnipeg V. M.C.A. team is
trying to arrange fur a trip to tho
coast, Thi' local enthusiasts have
made up a guarantee lund to have
1 hem play a game here, so prospects are good fur a game with tbem

occasioned hy the (act that the hydrant

be concentrated, and had a good stream
of water pouring on t lie ll unes, which
were scon extinguished, Tlie lire waB
confined childly to the buck of the
house, and the fact of all the doors
being clused pievented the Haines from
being drawn into the main part of the
building. While the lire is respcnsible
lor considerable damage to the structure, the water poured on it spread all
over the house, greatly adding to it.
A disastrous lire was fortunately
avoided. We understand that the
damage is well covered  by insurance.
