SACRED CONCERT
Pleasing Musical Production on
Good Friday
Good Friday passed quietly yesterday in the city. The weather was
cloudy and dull, typical of an occasion
which is the greatest aud most solemn
in the history of the world. The chief
feature of the evening wss the Sacred
Coucert at the Opera House under the
auspices ol the Methodist church
choir. The audience, though not
large, was none the less appreciative.
Tbe programme was vari d, containing many fine numbers, chief among
which were lhe selections trom Wagner by the Independent Band who
were in splendid form. The choir and
chorus work with orchestral accompaniment funned a feature of the concert. Among the many soloists, Mrs.
Squarehriggs was heard with pleasure,
while Miss Pagden, a recent acquisition
to Kevelstoke, gave a sweet rendition
of "Oh Ior tbe Wing, ol a Dove." Tbe
many other vocal aud instrumental
mi ' hers were all well rendered and a
pleasing entertainment was brought
to a close wilh the greatest oi all
musical inspirations, the Hallelujah
chorus.
Great credit is due to Mies Creighton
who bas worked hard in producing tbe
coucert, and the excellence of the
voice production is mainly due to her
excellent training.
Mr. K. K. Copeland had charge of
the staging arrangements and the
effect was artistic and conducive to
voicing choral works. Miss M. Byrd
deserves great credit for her pianoforte
accompaniment, another evidence of
the thorough training ot ber teacher,
Miss Creighton.
REVELSTOKE SCHOOL LEAGUE
Public School Pupils Will Compete for Championships.
A meeting wae held on Friday,
March 26, iu the public school at
which it was resolved, "That an organization called 'The Kevelstoke
Schools' League' be formed for the
purpose ol promoting sports betweeo
the two schools."
The following orfioers were elected:
Hon. president, Mr. Coursier- president, Principal Pollock; vice-president
George Matheson; secretary, M. A.
Leet; assistant secretary, Fred Fraser;
treasurer Principal McLaurin; executive committee, E. Coursier, C. Procunier, E. Dickie and 1) Calder.
The large and handsome shield now
in the possession of the public school
will be competed for in live lacrosse
games to be played between now and
the end ol the season. Tbe Hrst regular game of this series will be played
ou the Y. M. C. A. grounds ou Friday,
April 23. A practice game was played
yesterday and resulted in a score ol
3-0 in favor of the public school. At
tbe outset the public school appears
tu bave a fair chance to retain possession of tbe shield, but Captain Cour
eier of the high school team has not
got bis men down to steady drill yet,
and when he docs the luck may turn
the other way.
Local Option Meetings
Kev Dr. Spencer, superintendent of
the Provincial Local Option League,
is visiting Kevelstoke snd will hold
two public meetings in the interests ol
tbe local option movement. The lirst
will be ou Sunday afternoon at I
o'clock in the gymnasium of tbe Y.M.
C.A., and the second on Wednesday
nigbt at H o'clock io tbe same place.
A joint choir will lead the singing and
some special musical selections will be
rendered. As tbis is Dr. Spencer's
lint visit here, and as the question is
a live one in the province, nil who can
get iuto the gymnasium are invited to
come whether agreeing or not with
local option. Dr. Spencer will also
preach in St. Andrew's church on
Sunday morning and in the Baptist
church on Sunday evening.
Summer Five O'clock Closing
At a meeting tbis week of retail
merchants snd other business men it
was decided lu close the stores at 5
p.m. io the afternoon instead of at 6
o'clock as in the case uow. The question of longer hours ol daylight lor
recreation during tbe summer alter
business hours, has been freely discussed in tbis city, and although the
idea of putting tbe clock on one hour
ahead, aa wss done at Nelson last year,
is not considered advisable owing to
tbo extreme tliUieuIty ol having two
distinct times in the city, yet, some
plan for giving the store employees
more daylight iu tbe eveuiug was
lound necessary. Tbe Wednesday
ball holiday is not popular and  tbe
merchants have decided that they wil'
Irom May 1st close at 5 p. m. instead
of 6 p.m. The only objection to this
is made by the Italians who seem to
be unwilling to act in conjunction
with the other merchants in this
matter. This, however, should not
prevent the greater portion of those
aft'ected by the change to give way,
and the Italian business men Bhould
realize that the move is in the interests of lli.- community generally.
Should the Daylight Saving Bill, now
before the Federal House, become law,
the new law will be enforced throughout the Dominion.
HORRORS OF CAMP LIFE
Workmen   Left  iji Criminally
Distressing Circumstances
Edmonton-, April 8.—That working
in the camps ol the great transcontinental is by no means romantic, nor yet
unattended with hardship, is testified
to by a gang ol men from the far weBt.
last night, who unfolded a tale ot dissatisfaction which seemed to have a
good deal of ground in lact. The men
had been working in a tie camp lull
miles past the Pembina, where Ihey
went in the early fall last year. Tbey
went out on a contract to get out ties
at a rate of ll and 12 cents for first aud
second class.
Tbe timber was fair and the men,
being nearly all Canadians, mostly
from the Ottawa and Glengarry country in Ontario, and theiefore natural
axe men, settled down to a good winter's work, witb the prospect for a
starter lor a hank account in the
spring. Before they got aloug very far,
however, it became apparent that the
company had uot the necessary teams
to get the ties out ul tbe woods, and
until they were hauled out they could
not get a settlement. Some ol tho
men demanded a settlement, and tailing to get. it refused to go ahead, with
the result that they lost the biggest
part ol the month of January and hud
to pay board besides.
The saddest blow came, however,
when the camp was broken up. The
men were given orders on the contractor in Edmonton for their pay,
but no money and no checks. They
were told that the orders were good
when tbey got to Edmonton, hut they
were not iurnished with anything negotiable for travelling purposes. A
gang ol 2li or more among whom there
was hardly the price of a meal altogether, had to make their way I.i"
miles into the city without money, in
a country where meals are 50 cents
cash and the road houses are always
chock-a-block with good pay customers.
Some of the experiences related by the
men are not and. as to encourage emigration to the tic camps. One Scandinavian boy, whose control ol English waB limited, had to walk two days
without anything to eat, and his case
was a distressing one indeed. The
men explain that they hadn't thought
of legal action, and as there were no
lawyers among tbem tbey did not
know what the law about the matter
was anyway, but that if the province
ol Alberta has no law requiring settlements at stated pcrluds in cash, it
should have lur the prutectiun uf the
men wbo have to earn their living in
the tie camps.

GAS PLANT

City Accept Report of 30 Days'
Test-Must Use Better Coal
—Sewage Work Commences
At Once.
A special meeting of the City Council was- held on Thursday night with
Mayor Lindmark and Aids. Wells,
Pradolini, Stone and Kimberley
present.
The meeting wus called tor the pur-
poee uf receiving the repnrt nf Supt.
Duck of the thirty day elliciency trial
test ol the new gus engine plant; the
sewerage contract ami other business
if deemed necessary. The following is
the substance ol the report brought in
by Mr. Duck:
Clause 1.—That the gus generator
should he capable of produoing gas to
supply the engine to its lull capacity
and that the tire should not require
drawing out more often than fcur
days with a run ol twelve hours per
day. /
Result—Clause 1.—The generator is
capable uf supplying lhe engine to its
lull capacity, but, although a new
grate was installed, it is almost impossible to rim the four days without
drawing the lire. The clinker creeps
on the refractory lining very quickly,
and the gas ia impaired to such an
extent tbat tlie quality cannot be relied upon (or regular and perlect
running of tbe engine. After drawing
the lire and thoruiighly cleaning out,
gu id results were obtaiued lor two and
sometimes three days.
Clause 2—That the purifying apparatus should be capable ofoleaning
the g.is in the proper manner.
Result—Clause 2—The purifying
apparatus is ns good as can be expected cuiisidering the cnndilinns
under which it bus tu wurk. Tiie

gas generator in abnormal. .Mr. Coleman has improved the sawdust
scrub'ier by adding a layer ot broken
ccke on the bottom. It seems to bo a
matter ol experiment and this part of
the plant can be operated fairly satisfactory.
Clause 3.—That the engine shall
run smoothly and develop tbe lull
rated horse power guaranteed by tl e
builders. That the gas valves should
noi require cleaning ofienur then
every six working days.
Result.—Clause 3.— l'lu; engine has
proved itself all that can be desired.
Mr. Owen made a thorough test t.i

For a while the gas valves weie giving

Fielding to the House of Commons
last week for un additional loan of
$10,000,000 made the Hou.-e sit up
and brought Mr. R. L. Borden lo
Ins feet with a statement of the
total obligations of the country in
the mutter of tbe G.T.P. to date.
These he showed to be nearly
$300,000,000 against $28,750,000 to
be provided by the Qrand Trunk
I'acilic.
It may safely be assumed that if
the country had known at the outset that such a vast expenditure
would huve been saddled upon the
houiiiiiun tbe sanction of the country would never have bean obtained for the G. T. P. contract. Not
that Canada would have balked at
the expenditure of three hundred
million dollars fora railway but
the conditions under which the
money would have heen loaned
would have been quite different,
As it is Canada dues not own a

HON. MR. TAYLOR ON TOUR
Will Inspect Public Works in
the Province
Hon. Thomas Taylor, Minister ol
Public Works, has commenced a tour
of inspection of tbe various public
works now going on in the province.
In the course of an interview at the
Coast, just prior to his departure, Mr
Taylor remarked:
" It would be impossible to enumerate all the wurk which the Department
bas on hand at present. On works
and buildings the Provinoe iB spend
ing this year something like $666,000.
Probably the chief enterprise is tha
Vahcouver Court House, which should
be about ready lor occupation by tbe
spring Tbe building, when com"
pleted, will cost alout $750,000.
Then lhe plans and specifications
for the new wiug of the insane asylum
ou the Government farm at Coquitlam
are aliout ready, necessitating au outlay of $121,000. Thou tbere are tbe
Fernie Court House, New Wi stminster
Laud Registry ollices and the Court
Houses in Nelson aud Kamloops wbicb
bave just been completed.
The most important work ol the
Department is tbatol tbe construction
ol trails, streets and bridges throughout British Columbia, lor these are the
arteries not only of commerce but of
settlement.
An example ol the work of this kind
oan be seen at Revelstoke in tbe new
Columbia River traffic bridge which is
being built to open up a large snd
valuable territory between Bevelstoke
and the Okanagan valley.
Upon surveys, aud improvements ol
land, the Government will spend some
$560,000. Tbis work ie necessary lor
it must go band in hand with settlement.
1 have so far since taking over the
Department, endeavored to get in
touch witb local conditions as far as
p .asible. I will inspect eapecially any
of he roads and trails in the different
districts as I am able to After visiting tbe municipalities along the
Fri/.er river, meeting the Reeve of
eaeh, the Government agents aid road
superintendents, I shall go on up intu
the Okanagan as far as Vernon. About
(lie middle ol April I shall re-urn and
leave at once for Ptincj Rupert "

COST OF THE G. T. P.
Canada  Pays Three Hundred
Millions
During the debate in the House of
Common! laat week on the motiun ol
Hon. Mr. Fielding to grant an additional loan of 110,000,000 to the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway for the completion of tbe prairie section. R. L.
Uordeh submitted a statement which
showed the relative obligation ol tbe
company and of the country. While
it has been known for months tbat the
obligations of tbe country were being
considerably increased, the concise
statement given below will materially
aid in arriving at a conclusion as to
the businesfl acumen  ol  the  bargain.
Tbe statement ie:
PEOPLE'S t't.NTKir.lJTION
Government total guarantee $66,-
658,000.
Government loan, iflO.OUO.OOO.
Interest for seven years on motin-
tain lectinn, $18,413,750
Coit of eaitern section $190,003,000.
Total (approximately), $270,000,000
ORANIl TRUNK  CONTRIBUTION
Guarantee,— $28 7."i0,000.
Mr. Borden criticized at length tbe
position ol the government with regard to tbe construction of the railway
and asked : "What ie it proposed to
secure for tbe people of Canada?" The
Grand Trunk, which is to provide a
guarantee ol $28,000,000 out of a total
ol $300,000,000, is to receive for tbe
atiittanee ao given $25,000,000 of
common ttock, and the people of tbis
country, wbo are providing nine-
tentht of tbe whole expenditure and
guarantees, are to receive absolutely
nothing in respect ol any share whatever in tbe future development, which
shall result from this enterprise when
the great western country shall have
made this $25,000,000 ol stock worth
at lesit $100 a share.
"Having regard to the money the
people of this country bave put into
this great entejpriee, is it not pertinent to ask. What do you purpose to
do for the people of Canada ?"
