Canadian Banks Will Not Lower Rate of Interest.
Vancouver, Sept. 15.—"Tbe Can
adian banks will not lower the present
r*te of iutereut for some time to come."
This was the definite announcement
made yesterday by Mr. Molson Mac-
pherson. president of the MolsonB
Bank; Mr. James Elliot, general manager, and Mr. li. Markland Molson, a
director, all of whom arrived in the
city last night from Montreal, and are
guests at the Hotel Vancouver.
Strange as it may first appear, the
reason that there ia no likelihood of
the rate of interest dropping is because
ol the increased prosperity of the
country, which, in its euorui us demand- for money, will enable the
banks to maintain the present high
Discussing the financial situation
Mr. Elliot said: "The couutry is growing at a remarkable rate and business
increases at a greater ratio than the
savings, so that the savings are out
and in demand all the time, and incidentally k.eping up the rates ofin-
terest. Money that has been placed
on call in New York has been brought
in, but no more than the amount required for the removal of the crop has
been recalled, as the money iu New
York is earning good interest."
The Molsons Bauk is contemplating
the establishment of new branches at
various points in British Columbia.
This forms part of the mission ol its
otlicials to the west. On their home
ward trip after visiting Victoria tbey
will leisurely tour the Kootenays,
which they regard as likely to require
increased banking facilities.
The marriage ol Mr. Harry Trauer
Jail'ray, manager ol the Imperial Bank
at Golden, and formerly of Revelstoke,
to Miss Jessie I. Benson, daughter of
Judge BeiiBon of Port Hope, took
place last Wednesday at the church of
St. John the Evangelist, Port Hope,
says the Golden Star. The ceremony
was conducted by the Rev. John Rid
ley ol Gait, rural dean, assisted by the
Rev. Edwin Danbl, MA., rector. Miss
Meilish presided at the organ, and a
full choir was present. The church
was char ningly decorated. The bride
wore a I'urisian gown of white silk liberty crepe, made in the Bemi-empire
Style, with yoke of tulle and touches
of pearl and silver trimming. A lace
shawl of gieat beiuty fell in graceful
folds to the hem of her train, and her
handsomely embroidered veil, with
wreatli of orange blossoms, was the
sa i e one worn by lur mother. Her
sister, Mitts Clara C. Benson, was ber
only attendant. The best man was
Mr. Louis C. McMurray of Toronto,
and the ushers were Messrs. Percy
Henderson, Stuart Saunders and H.
L. Plummer of Toronto, and Mr. T. B.
F. Benson of Port Hope. During the
signing of the register Ihe guests listened with great enjoyment to the
rendering ol a very beautiful solo by
Mr. Marvin Ratlibun of Toronto.
Afterward a reception was beld at Ter-
lalta, lollowed by a most pleasant
luncheon. Mr. and Mrs. JafTray loft
later for the west, the bride wearing a
smart travelling suit of golden brown
Rajah silk, with an ecru net blouse,
and a hat of the same shade, with a

The People Will Vote on Monday for the $10,000 By-law
to Complete the Power and
Light Plant.
On Mm I'ny next tlie ratepayers will
be asked tn dorBe the by-law which
waB recent y introduced and passed
by unanimous consent of the city
council authorizing the borrowing of
$10,000 for the purpose of completing
the power plant ns arranged for and
ordered by the Oouncil ol 19u7 under
the Brown administration. The peo
pie will naturally aek why .they have
to pledge the city's credit again for
the same power plant and why the
original appropriation was not made
large enough from the beginning to
cover the entire cost of the work. The
last council in taking the estimates
and figures of Col. Tracy did not take
into consideration the fact tha' these
figures and eotimnti s were bused on a
scale that, did not allow for any margin or provide for any incidental
expenses that might aMse. The $30,-
000 which 11. (liiiiilii:<1 affirmed  would
cover tin nipletP cost   of   lhe   work
was voted for by lhe people and debenture it.biii iljand suid Since that
time ni the rizinu the actual practical
work of installation has been entered
upon and it wns h! once seen that ihe
$30,000 was not liy a long way sufficient to complete iIk work. The new
Council of 1908 when it assumed
office were saddled with the great
responsibility of installing a plant,
and as the work went ou it was found
that many changes were necessary
to carry out tbe work in a satisfactory
manner. These changes meant additional expense, consequently it waB
found that $30,000 was inadequate
and could never by any reasonable
means be made to cover the entire
work. The great mistake that the
11*07 oouncil made was in not taking
a little outside estimate and then
allowing an additional sum on tbe
top for anything that might arise.
The people were told that .(30,000 was
sufficient for to put iu aud complete
the plant and on such belief endorsed
the by law authorizing the raising of
the money. Several important changes
have been nnul6_ .Since the first plan
was adopted anilevBIi without them
the cost ut the plant when properly in.
stalled would have exceeded the
appropriation, consequently the present council to carry out the contract
made by the l',)07 admi i-tration
when they found tlmt the work could
uot bo completed within the original
esiimato weie forced to come attain to
tbe people to authorizo tlie borrowing
of additional money to finish it It
can easily be seen that now the plant
is all on lliejgriiiind and half installed
it would be foolish to refuse the extr i
money, and in any case $40,000 is
not an exceptionally large amount for
a power plant aud auxiliary of the
Bize purchased. The present council
cannot help themselues and it is better to raise the money on debentures
than take it out of the current revenue, which would, besides being a
heavy drain on the treasury, tint also
be a very unwise and unbusinesslike
Voting for this bylaw to authorize
the borrowing of $10,000 ou debentures to complete the plant will take
place on Monday next, Sept. 21, aud it
is to be hoped that the public will
endorse the action of the council
then and afterwards register their
complaints if they have any.
The Toymaker
The "Toymaker" was presented on
Saturday at the Opera House by tho
San Francisco Opera Company. The
piece which 'i in reality a transposition of that famous comic opera La
Poupee was well rendered, costumes
and scenery being superb. The singing and chorus work was exceptionally
strong, while the solos and part pieoes
were all effectively produced. Miss
Mabel Day as Elsa played splendidly,
her acting in the difficult rolo uf tlie
Doll Baby being poi fool. Teddy Wobb
shone as Johannes Guggenheim, his
portrayal as the German toymaker
causing continuous mirth. This production was as clever a piece as Rovelstoke has witnessed, although the
only drawback was that the entire
play was cut short and hurried over
to allow of the company catching
their train. This we think hardly
(air to the audience who paid a big
prloo for their soats,
Coursier's Coal is all Coal.
'Appy 'Ome Has a Delightful
River and Lake Trip
One of the most popular and enjoyable excursions this summer look
place last, Sunday under the ausp'ces
of the 'Appy 'Ome, when the s s.
Revelstoke was chartered for a trip
down the Columbia river and Arrow
lakes to Halcyon. A large and good
humored crowd assembled at the
Landing Sunday morning, and as the
Bteamer moved away from the wharf
all on board had made up tbeir minds
for a day's thorough enjoyment The
trip down the Columbia was new to
the majority ol the passengers and
was full of new sights and scenes, aB
every bend and turn of the river
brought the magnificent scenery into
view. Deep shadowy wood, open
glade, steep ravines, and swirling
rapids were passed in quick succession
the mountains rearing up their snowy
heads in the distance. The passage
down the lake proved as entrancing as
the river, the bright sun making the
air delightful Halcyon was reached
in good time and here the party dispersed chiefly into pairs to wander
among the leafy woods and explore
the -many beautiful re-treats that
abound in that vicinity. The climb
to the springs proved mi sttaction to
many while others took advantage of
the Sanitarium but lis. Mine Host
Mcintosh rose to ili.s occasion with a
royal lunch, to which all did full
justice, the appetites boing whetted by
the delightful bracing air. After another hour of leisure "all aboard" was
sounded and the return journey was
made. The trip up the lake iu the
at ernoon followed hy the negotiation
ot the Columbia was full of interest
and pleasure. The s.s. RevelBtoke
made the city wharf in good time
before dark and her passengers dispersed ashore contented and happy
alter an ideal trip. Two bears were
seen during the passage of the Columbia and a ling shot taken with a rifle,
but without success.

Revelstoke has a large number of
bylawB on its rolls uud we take it
for granted that these laws must
have been meant for enforcement
and to be obeyed by the people
when they were placed on the lists
of city enactments, and one thing
is certain that a city police officer
can never successfully be taken to
tusk who honestly endeavors to the
best of his ability to enforce and
make operative the bylnwe thus
passed. In many wujs the public
can help the police in the maintenance of order and it is ono of the
obligations of citizenship to do so
whenever and wherever the call is
made. If the police officials ure
conscientious in their duty, they
need fear no one, because their
case will be such that popular
opinion, which first prompted the
law, will consistently aid in its enforcement, This is a mutter which
must appeal to every right minded
and honest citizen to stand by
what he bus orduined shall be und
then see that those who are currying out his request he protected.
lt is n regrettable fact that as
soon bb a city bylaw has been
passed and put into force, few people really give tbem a thought and
in many cases forget all about it
although at the time when that
particular movement is on foot
considerable  interest   was  shown.
Apropos of our repeated suggestions that our business men should
take more interest in public life
and seek provincial as well us
municipal honors, the following
from the Western Trade Gazette
will aptly describe the situation:
"Many campaigns liuve been
waged to indue the successful business man to take his proper place
in the field of politics. In some
instances these campaigns have
borne fruit and the governments in
which such men have entered have
been swamped hy honest and prosperous administration.
"Frequently business men of
note have refused to enter public
life because, tbey claimed, they
could ill afford to neglect their personal business. While at first blush
the motive seems mercenary, many
act under its inlluence. believing
that it is un unfair test of Iheir
patriotism to invite them into public life at such a sacrifice.
"Today, we find the occasion opportune, to point out to those
within our sphere of influence, the
imperative neoeitity of bringing to
the administration of our affairs
men who have been successful in
their own businesses and whose integrity is beyond question. . . .
In    view ol    the   great work in   be
done in widening the I00| f   out
provincial llie, It would be deplorable to tee the business nan remain
apathetic and Indifferent.
"Not only -houlil men uf large
business Interests impress upon
public servant* tlie importance "f
the dutieH imposed upon them, but
they Bhould, themselves, for their
own protection, for the pTOteOlion
of tbeir extensive business Interests,
take an active part in the direction
of public affairs.
We believe business men will
find it to theii advantage not to
neglect politics."

One way produces evenly broiled meat and
evenly toasted bread without taxing the
patience of the housewife. This way is represented by "Sask-alta" Range. The reason:
"Sask-alta" Range has an Automatic Lift Top
(Patented) in addition to regular
Broiler Door; and this team works
for the operator instead of making
her work.
The "Sask-alta" Way
Another way produces
unevenly broiled meat and
unevenly toasted bread
and taxes the patience of
the housewife. This way
is represented by most
Ranges. The reason:
Some Ranges have "only"
a Broiler Door, others have
a contrivance like that
illustrated in top small
drawing; both of which enjoy the distinction
of tiring the arm that holds the broiler and
tiring the eye that directs the arm.

Eminent Critic Styles Work of
Local Dramatists Excellent.
The "Shauphraiiu" cast and those
who assisted in its production ou Labor
Day and the following benefit night,
spent a pleasant social evening nn
Monday in the Band room, kindly
lent for tbe occasion. Progressive
whist took up the bulk of tbe evening,
after which refreshments were served.
Since the production of the "Shaugh-
raun" the amateurs have been bighlX
congratulated on their work by all
wbo were fortunate enough to witness
this thrilling play. The success of tbe
"Shaugbraun" and the talent employed combined witb realism and
admirable presentation, has opened
the eyes ol the Revelstoke public to
tbe knowledge that in the Dramatic
elub tbe city has an institution of
which it should be justly proud. We
have learned since our lust issue was
published that a dramatic critic who
is prominent in Canada and the States
and wbo perchance dropped into tbe
opera bouse while the play wss in
progress, bas spoken in the highest
terms ol the manner in which the
"Shaugbraun" was put on, and expressed surprise that amateurs could
so successfully stage and act a play of
tbis kind which required such attention to details and absolute precision
to insure its successful issue. Histrionic art is the most difficult of any to
excell in, and those who took part iu
tbe "Shaugbraun" have much to be
proud of.
