Rossland Receives Cup
Nelboh, B.C., Feb. 12.—The Nelson-
Rossland hookey matoh for the championship of British Columbia at
Rossland, ended in a fizile at a late
hour Saturday night. Nelson had
demanded in writing last month that
a judge ol play aa well as a referee
ihould be appointed, and objected
strongly to Releree Winn n| Rossland,
who was appointed by the Rossland
oarnival oommittec Nolson went
over on promise that a judge ol play
wonld be appointed. Saturday night
the committee refused to appoint any
judge of play or any referee other then
Winn, and on Nelson refusing to play
the cup was given to Rossland aa in
1005 There are no association rules,
Rossland making all its own rules
and regulations, henee tbe trouble.
Some live hundred Nelson people who
went over will receive back their gate
Westward Ho!
The February number of Westward
Ho I is by far the best illustrated and
most entertaining yet attempted by
tbe enterprising publishers. A two-
colour cover design of " Tbe Lions "
at Vancouver, by S. P. Judge; a superb frontispiece and a scorn ol clever
stories and departments including
that oi the editor, " Men I Have Vet,'
makes the midwinter issue a well
balanced number. Capt. Clive Phillips Wolley commences bis serial
" Shikmut," a tale ol Sitka in the
times of the Russians, tbe rights lor
which has been acquired by tbe pub.
lishers. It is an intensely absorbing
atory, virile ot tbe north, and will
doubtless go a lung way to popularize
Western Canada's new monthly.
E. Adair of Revelstoke Lectures
in Scotland.
We have received tbe following from
au Aberdeen, Scotland, paper:
"Last night Mr. Edward Adair, of
Revelstoke, British Columbia, a practical fruit-grower and fruit expert,
dolivered a lecture in the Salvation
Army Citadel, under tbe auspices of
'he Aberdeen Branch of the Salvation
Army, on lhe subject of (rtiit-growing
in British Columbia, and the.prospects
of success for emigrants from tho country to Canada. Capt. Tyrol, ol London, opened the meeting and Btalsd
that Mr. Adair had done good work
lor the Army in sending immigrants
to Canada.
"Mr, Adair then addressed the meeting. He commenocd by referring to
himself as a Irue-boru Canadian who
thought a great deal of the British
Empire, and desired to see people
building up their own country across
the sea, In Canada I hey had a land
ol opportunity where they bad work
lor all and land for all. (Applause.)
He Bpoke of the extent and area cf
Canada as stretching for 3(1(10 miles
from Atlantio to Pacific, aud 1400
miles from the United Suites hound
ary to the north. He also dealt with
the population of Canada, mentioning
that the 6,000,000—the same as the
population ol London—had aeiphi
room, lor if b0,000 homesteads of 150
acres of land each were given off yearly for the next 100 years there would
still be room, and they could give
every man in Scotland a homestead
after that. They need not be afraid
of turning anybody off if they went to
Canada. Ninety-five per cent of the
population of Canada were British
subjects, and therefore they ongl t to
try ti keep up the proportion and
have it specially as a dominion of
British subjects. There were 130,000
more males than females in Canada,
and therefore it was not surprising
that they desired 200 or 300 girls to
go out with the firit steamer sailing.
Mr. Adair then speke of the ri sources
ef Canada and its climates, (or it must
be remember-d it had every climati
there was iu Europe, In Briti-h Columbia alone they had 40' 1,000 sipurc
ni es of land, so the extent ul the
province was twelve times as large as
Sc. tland.
"After dealing generally with the
great resources of Canada, Mr Adair
spoke specially of fruit-growing in
British Ccluni bin, mint inning that
they had there tbe climate for growing fruit and millions of acres on
which it oould advantageously be
growi, They could grow peaches aud
all kinds of northern fruit tbat would
yield from £100 to £250 per acre. He
had, at Kevelstoke, taken a fifth crop
of strawberries from the same plums,
and believed that twelve crops could
be secured from those plants
never had less than five tons of straw- sflernoim. The ceremony was simple
berries to tbe acre, and he knew of but impressive, and ended wilhout any
some who had beat him in obtaining untoward incident,
more. He had sold from one acre The line of procession from the
strawberries that realised $247, besides chapel in the palace to the church

In tho Grand Challenge, McR.e, of
Revelstoke, lost to Warren, of Golden,
while Robertson, Kevelsioke, lost to
Lamontaigne, of Golden. Hii. Pinkham sustained the honors for Revelstoke, however, and struck a winning
gait, defeating Reid, of Golden, 12-0,

There t, so much bad io tbe be.t of u-
And so much e'Kid in the worst of OS,
That it turdljr behooves any nf u-.
To laiii an .ut the re;t of us.
Application has been made by tlie
Reveletolce Turf Club to tbe Lieut.-
Governorin-Council for an order
gr»ntiDg that tlie name be changed to
that ol the Revelstoke Agricultural
society- This has been the outcome
of Considerable di-cussiun over the
advisability of organising ft Revelstoke
Fall Fair, the general opinion being
that the time had arrived when such
a feature was necefSary in this section.
The hist'-ry of the Turf Club is so well
known that we need not go into
details over it, but suffice it to say
that of the original shareholders who
were instrumental in starling the
acbeme, but a limited few have kept
tbat interest alive, which wns so evident nt the commencement. Had not
a few of the more .porting inclined
citizens got together and kept the
Turf Chili above water, it would have
died a natural death like su many
other organizations and clubs in this
city. The Turf Ciub is an institution
which should be kept up, not only
because this sport is the finest in the
land, hut because it is a means of
advertising our city and bringing in
visiters when the 1 cession demands,
There has beeu no real reason why
the shareholders have dropped all or
practically nil interest in the club.
When it is remembered what the few
whn have kept things going, httVi
done, how they have insured a success
ful meeting every year and secured a
tine tract of hind for 11 city reserve ami
curried out e.xlotiHivu improvements,
the city or at least the shareholder!
should each do their part. Owing to
the popularity of fruit und *Vegctable
glowing ill this vicinity of ticent
years und Hie fuct that Revelstoke is
now tho headquarters of the great
f>liib growing industry in the province
there is an additional olaim on the
shareholders of this club for their
support. By the inauguration ol nn
annual Fair, tho fruit, of tlm province
can be exhibited und the produce
shown, 80 Unit once 11 year the industry can demonstrate ul ita heud
quarters its. yearly progress, when
furtner can n.eet turmcr, buyer ineel
buyer,   und   investor   meet    investor,
and the aggregation of the fruit and
produce business advertise these 11 •
sources which nre now recognised und
coming to ihe front in tl.c natural
wealth of B.C. Revelstoke herself
has fruit growing pi ssihilities hitherto
unknown, und in view ol lliesti fuels
the public should report generously
to the call for funds to ensure the
success of this important movement.
Many people arc interested in fruit,
produce und live stock, while sports
and games would attract others.
There bus never been any oause for
a citizen to look askance at the Turf
Club, hut there is every reason lur all
to support, the new movement.

Apropos of the library contest,
which is now exercising the minds ol
every citizen, more or less, and which
has apparently oaused smii u division
ul opinion among those interested,]
wo would suggest that the merohants
whose names have figured on the list
us being entitled tu issue coupons
meet and either arrange for u decision
or ebe appoint a judge to bring the
mutter to u conclusion. Everyone bud
an equal opportunity of gelling orders
even at short notice hence eiery side
of the question must be looked ut
since dillicuiies have arisen over final
settlement uud while we contend lhat
our uclion iu ibis mutter bus been
correct, nevertheless every man has a
right to his own opinion, Our rights
as to having any authority in the
matter have been questioned yet we
note that our opinion has been followed out by many nnd our ideas noted
upon. Tbe hardest put of the contest,
that of counting votes 1ms in Mime
way been left to us mid thnt being
acknowledged and allowed, we can
certainly olaim a right to an opinion

Will vnu kindly allow  me to   niuk-
a   little   statement   in   ngar.l   to   tbe
Library coutest.   In a normal, bea th
family,  such   as   more   than    half   of
Reielstoke ia coiup  -id of, but u snu I
am. ii ii c of money is spent   in   u  drui;
Store, cigar  store,   printing,  or   haul
ware; the  greater   pint   by   far   being
left   with  the   grocer,   butcher and
clothier.   Through some oversight the
lai-t three  mentioned   were   not   sup
plied  with  sufficient   library tic
and consequently when we. tin- would-
be voters   in   the   contest   paid   our
current bills, they could nit  keep thi
contract,   which   had   been   public y
made, to supply us   with  coupons.    I
ask you, in the name of  justice,   ij   it
right that we should lose  our  cii
to vote, through no fault of our own
If the merchants are anxious to  keep
their agreement and common  bonesl
demands that the I rders (or votes tha'
they have Issued be counted as votes
Von state that many who held orders
for votes would not turn them in, iu
also.were ninny of the tickets not
turned io, but in every ruse ii is up t..
th «e who held them buck, ami cannot
interest the public at large, li thi
orders for votes are not count.si. a
great injustice will be done, and from
my knowledge of our l-'ire 11 iys, I d
not believe that, they would willingly
Consent to any such thing.
Yours for justice,

Within one yc-tr the Stock of this Corporation will be Belling at n handsome premium, Tlii'ii
It will be ton lute to buy. The experience of every industry has been that tbe time to buy its
stock is in the amhryo stage before n wheel bus been turned, We have been framed water rights
of H.'iim-y River, unit hope to have tin- tlt-st iiuitof our pi.-tni in operation for the manufacture of
paper within four luonth-i. When complete tbis modern mill will have a weekly capacity of 180
tuns of newspaper and 27D tuns of wrapping.
We uow offer the balance of our first allotment of Preferred Stock In blocks of 100 shares at
$1.00 per slum-. This si i irk is entitled to nn annual dividend of 7 per cent., commenclnu Novembi r
1st, llHis. Tin' 7 per cent, is due and payable before any dividend is p tid upon the Common Stock.
After 7 prr cent, haa been paid upon the Preferred and Common, thereafter both stocks participate - qually. There is no good reason why lhe Preferred Stock should not pay from 30 to SO per
cent, dividends,
Hereafter all subscriptions for first allotment shares will be accepted onl / upon a pro rata distribution basis. Notioe will be given in the immediate future of the exact date of the closing of subscriptions for the first allotment of Preferred Stock.
One of the most necessary Industries nf Western Oanada is that of tbe manufacture of wood,
Pulp und Puper, —every year hundreds of carloads of paper are annually secured from the Eastern
provinces at from $10 to $18 freight rate per ton. Why Bhould we not manufacture this great
amount of goods at in une iustead of Importing it, llius giving work to our own people und building
up our own Province? The future of Western Can tda depends upim the development ot its manufacturing Industries. The directors who are bending their energies la the establishment of this
great and useful industry are well known business men of Vdnouu.er who have subscribed liberally to the stuck in order to make tins a distinctly British Columbia enterprise.
REMEMBER-There ts no watered stock, no Inflated values or huge promoters' profits In the
enterprise. Unlike most corporations, Instead of allowing from 15 to 2"> per cent, for advertising
and sale of slock, the entire commission, brokerage and office expenses and sale of stuck is limited
to 10 per cent
The public are cordially Invited to visit our demonstrating plAnt, 313 Cordova Street, and
witne8s|the manufacture uf pulp and paper from refuse material, such as slabs, disoarded shingle
bolls, etc., that is now being burnt at I lie local mills.
