FIRE PROTECTION
The question of tire protection
throiiL-'Lii-'ut the city is one which
•: uuld l>e uppermost in our minds
at ai. -iiiiies and no opportunity
-:. .. i be let pass to improve onr
present system and lo make such
changes as are commensurate with
the growth of the city. While we
understand that a new alarm system is to be installed, ami the wir-
pintles made more in aooordanee
wilh what tire insurance should
demand. What would, we consider,
be n good in vest ment for the city,
would he a team nf horses to bo
kept at nignt in No. '2 Kire Hall,
for emergency night culls, which
would enable the brigade to reach
the scene of the lire without delay,
even if the outbreak occurred at
the farther end of the city. We
have repeatedly made this suggestion and we hope, thai this time,

contrast to not very lar distant times
when hii old aeiiled town would appoint h oom mil tee ol prominent citizens to sppr. acb a general manage;
with au entreaty lb it be would open a
braucb iu iboir town. The Globe,
after describing how Ihe government
tire ranger decidfd on tbe site ol (low
I!audit goes on to say.
Days afterward, away down the trail
which lends to Pullman car*, tele
graphs, shaving-water and other con-
vetiiencies, the lire ranger met a friend,
the manager ol a bauk in fob ilt.
"Can I buy a lot in (low liaudu?"
queried the bank man.
"Not yet. The town site is selected,
but ihere are no lots surveyed yet."
"Bo, il I want a bit ol ground on
which to build a hank, I'll have to
turn -qnatler, is tlmt It?"
"Thai's what."

TRAIN DESPATCHING
By   Te ephone   on   American
Railroads
For a great many years the telephone has filled a minor, but, nevertheless, important place in the communication system ol railroads Its
principal uses in the pust have been
in connecting up outlying switches
with telegraph offices, small stations
with telegraph stations connecting
round houses, coal sheds, etc , and in
the larger yards connrcting various
switch shanties, scales,||ice- house ,
round-hnuses, etc., with ih? yardmast-
er's ollice. This system h.ia proved of
untold value in handling the terminal
business and could not now be dispensed with, or replaced witb anything
that w .uld answer the purpose as well.
Errors and misunderstandings have
been so few that the American roads
bave decided to use the telephone in
train orders entirely, instead of the
telegraph, and so far the results bave
proved eminently satisfactory.
In handling train oiders by telephone it should be remembered that
all rules and regulations governing
train movement remain the same as
under the telegraph. No rules or
practices have been changed, and
everything that bus been done iB still
done, the only difference being that
the operators talk instead ol work a
telegraph key. The orders as delivered
to conductors and engineeis are just
tbe same in form, appearance and
every particular aa tbey have been and
are handled exactly the same as heretofore. In issuing a train order, the
dispatcher, alter calling the station he
wants, proceeds witli his order in the
same form antl formula as il by telegraph.
There has lieen a decided improvement iu the wurk and deportment o!
the men nut on the line, due to the
(act tbat the conversations between
the dispatchers and operators or other
employes are of u much more personal
character than obtained by telegraph,
resulting in more closer wurkit g relations and more pleasant co-opera
tion. lt is mote as if they were facing
each other and tin) don't leel like iu
diilgiug in some ul the choice remarks
tbat used- to fly over the telegraph
wire when some one would lose bis
temper.
Tbe new system hss been enthusiastically received and will open up a
great avenue lor employment.
There are many other advantages
connected with tbe use oltbe telephone
lur train dispatching, which we will
not enumerate on account ol lack ol
■pace. Tbe advantages sre very apparent, however, and it is decidedly a
step iu advance in toe method ol
handling trains. More trains can be
handled in a given time, prompter
movements can be made, emergencies
handled aud controlled quicker anil
better, everybody is placed in c'osir
touch with each other, and it is just as
sale, if not safer, than the telegraph
lor such purposes.   When telegraph
orders were first Introduced, the fi at,
train and engine men handling il.c .
were afraid of them and did not wuit
to use them Now we woul I nit do
without the u.   ll was a great advance
o«er running by smoke and time oard,

Song  of   the  Sawmills  and
Saws by Day and Night
Does a sawmill furnish energy lor
I sawing more lumber on the sawmill

Tbe lirst impulse would be lo answer
in the negative. Scores of old mill
men, some of whom have worked in
Revelstoke for many years, make reply
in au emphatic yea. Not only do Ihe
mill operators declare lhat water will
accomplish a greater amount ol work
at nighi ban in the tiny time, but
they oi ■ lecnrds ol actual performance", gi > i nam. b of mills and dates
where teste nuve beeu made.
In sawing deals aud other standard
lumber frnm spruce ol aveiage size,
the exact viriition in performance between night and day depends (.lightly
upon w a her coi.d titius, more being

assciti ni lieen proved many limes in

but it has been demons'rated through
elimination from the fact that mills

large a variation The millmen will
declare that ihe saws will make a

through spruce knots at night ihan
tbey do by d .y, so that if one visits a
strange mill, he could distinguish
whether it was night or day by the
■ougs of the saws. By daylight nothing but classical n.u.-icconies from the
most reckless of small saws. As soon
as the restraint uf daylight has passed
the reckless saws forget their dignity
and begiu to sing and hum ragtime
aud coon songs, chewing up lumber
and manufacturing deals at a great
rate
Mill owners and foremen of experience wbo have listened to the debate
for years, agree witb the hands, and
some of them add the explanation thut
the water is heavier hy nigh: than by
day, though nobody seems to huve
taken pains to weigh the water at the
two periods for the purpose of comparing results.
OF LOCAL IMPORT
Local Deputation Wait on Hon.
Wm. Templeman
The Hon. Wm. Templeman, Federal
Minister of Mi es antl Inland Revenue,
passed through yesterday morning on
No. 96 en route for Ottawa. A deputation from the Board o' Trade waited
on the minister and hrought up several
important queaiions for him to digest
on bis nay east.
Among other things, the matter ol
a postoffice was impressed upon him,
as well as land settlement in the district: the necessity of the G T. P.
being forced to complete their construction by 1911 without any further
extension being allowed. A request
wat made that tbe charter ol tbe A. &
K. Railroad bo nut extended, and that
il extension ol time was granted it
should be only conditionally that construction waa commenced at once.
The matter ol the geological survey ol
the Big Bend and tbe importance it
had upon Revelstoke was pointed nut
to Mr.Templeman, who promised that
tliese matters should receive bis best
attention.
The minister who was sulYering Irom
ac le indisposition, was accompanied
as lar aa Glacier by a deputation Irom
the Liberal Association, who, among j
other things, wished to discuss the
poatnllice question,
Without Rhyme or Reason
'there bas been a movement on loot
lately to try and take steps to suppress tbe distribution and sale of
photos ol "Kevelstoke Under Snow,'
on the grounds that these pictures
were detrimental lo the interests ol
tbe city and would prevent people
Irom coming here Such a thing is
abaolute nonsense, and sounds rather
like trying to deprive tbe photographer ol bia legitimate business.
Can the people descend to such a
practice ol trying to prevent the
outside world Irom learning thst
Revelstoke bas a lot ol snow and
thereby try and induce settlers to
come here? lt ie lar better to advertise sud announce Revelstoke aa tbe
ia, aod let tbe people wbo propose living here eee exactly wbat we have
thau misrepresent ouraelvei and let
them fully understand wbat they may
expect when tbey do come. Theae
kickers need have no tear, Revelatoko
will atsnd on her own credentials and
does not wish to misrepresent hersell
io any way. We are proud of our
snow and glory in our winter, and
snow pictures instead of being a
detriment will be a source of interest
in tbe future.
