t      HANDSOME STRUCTURE
Plans of New School Show Fine
Modern Building.
Messrs. H. Manning, Ed. Edwards,
and W. W. Foster, are at present at
the coast as a deputation Irom the
local School Board tu wait on the
goveruineut fur the purpose ol secur-
iug a grant towards the erection of
the new scliuol huildiDg ahuut to be
constructed in tlie east end ol the
city. The plant, as submitted by
King and Son, local architects, have
been approved and accepted by the
board uud ehutv an exceptionally fine
two storey structure of imposing
front, 112 feet lung by 55 feet wide.
The building contains eight class
rooms, each 24 hy ,')■! feet, with platform drinking fountain, roomy clotbes
closets, etc., well lighted ami ventilated.
Tbe basement contains tire proof
furnace rooms, closets and lavatories,
as well as a covered in play hall for
use iu wet weather. On each floor is
a large assembly hall measuring 28 by
60 It., aud 28 by 32 ft. A feature ol
the b dldiug are tbe stairs, so placed
aud arranged that no jtnimiug or
crushing can take place iu emergency.
Tbe b ructure is steam beated snd is
titled with hose and lire fighting
appliances. A teacher's ball, principal's study, store room, janitor's room,
etc., are part of the b lilding. The
roof is flat, hut eo provided that all
rain and snow water can easily run off.
A handsome turret with dome roof
surmounted by a Hag pole, adds greatly
to tbe appearance of tbe building. Tbe
plans show a tirst-class modern building, wbicb, il constructed, will be a
credit to the city.
LOCAL MINERAL EXHIBIT
At Seattle Fair Would Advertise
Revelstoke
Apart Irom tbe mineral exhibit
which is being collected by Mr.
Broiidbent, on behalf oi the Dominion
Government for the Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific Fair at Seattle, to which, we
understand tbe Kevelstoke Board oi
Trade is contributing, we think it
would be right and proper for a special
exhibit to be collected and exhibited
from Revelstoke itself and its mining
district. Here is a chance for mioe
owners to get busy and advertise the
local resources of mineral wealth.
Many there are we believe who would
be glad of an opportunity tu show
their samples, and we believe that a
distinctly Kevelstoke exhibit should
be made. There are many fine samples
of ores frum tbe district which could
be secured, and we have uu doubt but
tbat the mining men will be only too
glad lo assist in any scheme that wi 1
effect good results. Included in the
general exhibits our own particular
samples wutiltl he most probably
bidden and passed unnoticed, but with
our own separate display a line showing could bo made. We commend
tbis mutter tu the pul lie interest iu
thu hope that it will lie taken   hold ol

crease in prices of lunihet and lumber

Western Cut ad t.
In the f ice of prosperity in every
line of trade and an increasing demand, it is charged here that tlie Manufacturers of lumber, shingles and
other products, are deliberately cur
tailing tbeir output, In tbis way the
market is lieing starved and decided1)-
higher prices are being created.
While it is announced that the British Columbia mills found it a prac-
lical financial necensity to curtail the

"oist export trade is increasing, the

B. B. Southern Taxation
Une nf the most important cases,
frnm a public standpoint, that has

Dorando Beats Hayes Easily
Nkw VniiK. March 16.—Before
10,000 spectators, a large majority
of whom were his compatriots,
Dorando I'ielri to-night defeated
Johnny Hayes, in the "rubber
match"  for  supremacy.  The   race
was at tbe regulation distance, and   the governi ii against the ttppelUuts
run over a 10-lnp trnck at Madison
Square Garden. Both men were in
excellent condition. From the
starter's gun to the end of the
race the little Italian led the
American boy. In the seventh
mile Dorando started a heart
breaking sprint which Hayes was
unable lo follow and before half-ami le bad lieen run the foreigner
had gained a lap. Again in tbe
18th, after he had taken a breathing spell, the Italian sot a pace
which Hayes wits unable to follow,
and annexed another lup, Tlience
forward to the finish Durando
merely jogged, winning the race
hy liitlf-ii-inile in easy fashion.
The Weather Clerk
The weather clerk has been behaving badly of late. Having
given us the worst possible deal he
could scrape up in the cold snap
line, he quietly proceeded to ring
in a series of alternate clear, snowy
and rainy hunches of weather. One
kind alone would uot have been so
troublesome but the whole bunch
was rotten. Now he is toying
around and seeming to be hesitating as to whether he should bring
spring or not.

Bishop ul London to the students uf a

I "catty," is significant   and could very

j curse of that part of London, be said,
, was llie prevalence ol a catty spirit, by
which   the  bishop  meant tbe way 111
which many people spend  their  lives
saying ill nattiretl things about others.

LOCAL MINERAL EXHIBIT
At Seattle Fair Would Advertise
Revelstoke
Apart from tbe mineral exhibit
which is being collected hy Sir.
Broadbent, on helmlf of the Dominion
Government for the Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific Fair at Seattle, to which, we
understand tbe Hevelstoke Board of
Trade is contributing, we think it
would be rigbt and proper lor a special
exhibit to be collected and exhibited
from Revelstoke itsell and its mining
district. Here iB a chance for mine
owners to get busy and advertise the
local resources ol mineral wealth.
Many there are we believe who would
be glad of an opportunity to abow
tlieir samples, and we believe that a
distinctly Revelstoke exhibit should
be made. Tbere are many fine samples
of ores frum the district which could
bs secured, and we have no doubt but
tbat the mining men will be only too
glad to assist iu any scheme tbat wi 1
effect good results. Included in tbe
general exhibits our own particular
samples would he most probably
hidden and passed unnoticed, but witb
our own separate display a fine showing could bo made. We commend
this matter tu the put lie interest in

One of tbe must important cases,

came up last Friday in the cuurt

the appeal of tbe C. P. B. from
the decision ul tbe provincial assessor
tu assess the company in taxes fur
the land grant of the B. C. Southern, wbicli taxes amount 10 about
$125,000 a year Three surprises may
be said to have been sprung during
the day. The first was when E. P.
Davis, appearing for tlie C. P. R.,
asked ihe court to give a formal judgment, slating that uu doubt the case
would be appealed iu any event. He
declined to either put in a rebuttal
evidence nr to argue the case.
The next surprise was when Mr.
Lennie. immediately oo resuming his
chair in the afternoon, stated tin! as
a result, ..f consideration be hud decided tint he could nut comply witb
Mr. Davis' request fur a formal judgment. Ami tlie third surprise was
when Mr. Lennie reserved   judgment.

mile Dorando started a heart
breaking sprint which Hayes was
unable 10 follow and before half-ami Ie had been run the foreigner
had gained a lap. Again in tbe

which Hayes was unable to follow,
and annexed another lap. Thence

by half-a-niile in easy fashion.

Taxing Drinkers
The following frnm the Toronto
lllube is significant i
A lawmaker in lhe New Mexico
legislature has introduced an net to
r'quire every man, nud perhaps every
woman nr person, to pay an annual
fee of live dnllars a year as a license
for the privilege of drinking. .No
mention is nude of what be is going
to drink, but perhaps imbibing water
would not cume n. der tbe act. But
the indnlitence in anything else will
bring the i niiibers tn the i Hice where
licenses ar" i-Biietl.
This mui be I" ke.l upun as summary legislation, nr un interference with
the personal rights nl the individual.
Iiul as a prodncer of revenue it looks
like a guud law aid mie that I ears
witb alniOBt equal weight on all, (ur
there are real prohibitionists in practice whu feel the need ol a nip during
an attack of indigestion, or when the
weather isaruuud zer i puiut.
As lar us tlie general government is
concerned, it is beyoud question that
mure leienue is needed, und huw tu
get it puzzles the lawmakers sml ibe
linanciers. The income tax seems to
be out nf the question, because ii must
be niBile to lit all classes ami conditions if men and women. Whiskey,
beer and tobacco are carrying Iheir
fair share nf burdens.
What, then, remains?
Consider the Vw Mexican scheme.
Why shuuld uot a drinker pay bis
share as weli as the man who produce!

EVANGELISTIC SERVICES
Intense  Interest  Being  Manifested in the Meetings
The services in the Baptist Church,
under the leadership ol Evangelists
Baker and McLean, will continue chcIi
night this week. The services laBi
week readied a climax on Sunday. In
the evening lhe church was taxed to
its utmost to iieeuiiinii'ihi'ii the congregation. The interest was intense.
The singiny ol Mr. McLean and the
Male Quartette wns mucb appieciatcd
iis well as the pronchiiig ol Mr. Bake".
In lhe morning the preacher spnlo
ou "Prevailing Prayer," taking ns bis
text, limn 10 1 : " Brethren, mj
heart's il sire and prayer to Gnd fnr
Israel is, tbat she might he savid."
In ihe introduction be spnki ol the
unselfishness ol Paul's desire. He
prayed uut for worldly acquisition bul
tor blessing (or bis (allow men. nnd
that this was a prayer fur a elai-e I
people who already thought themselv s
safe Tbe preacher said it. was a terrible thing tu belong tn a Christian
church and not belong tu Chris'. The
lirBt. point was Paul's intensity ol
desire. It was nut a passing thought,
noi dream, nnr an luillucinaliiu.; hut
a desire that mkes huld uf lho vital
furces of life and moved them to
action. As an illustration be snid
that the man in the east who desired
to mine, gold iu the Kluudykc must

data, sume writers assign his birthplace to ibe present Boulogne-sur-
Mer; others tou place in tbe estuary

Three ol the highest mountain

Alaska-Yi_.kuu-Paci._ic Exposition in
Seattle. They are Mt. Rainier, Mt.
Baker and Mt. Constance.
Everyone wbo attends the Exposition in Seattle this summer, will have
tbe privilege ol panning guld dust
from native Alaska gravels, just as it
ii panned in Tanana and Klondike.
The "Pay Streak," which is to be
the amusement street of the Exposition, is three-quarters of a mile long,

BRIDGE WORK EMPLOYEES
Assurance Given There Wi'l be
No Discrimination
A prominent conservative of the
city waited on us yesterday regarding
the alleged interference by party politics in the enipluyment of men by the
contractors lor the Columbia Biver
government trallic bridge. This gen-
tlfiimn s'aietl that rumor was rile
that ilu bscharge of libera! inclined
laborers m .1 the hiring of conservative
men was 1 uineered frum Viotoria. lli
denied tin- .tut! explain,nl that it, was
the intention of the contractors to
give every man a chance for some of
the wurk while in progress ami while
there whs nut, at present, sullicient for
all tlmse who have applied, jet at the
same time the policy had been to em
ploy men lor a certain time anil then
give utheis wurk, su as to enable every
man to earn money He denied that
the Cunservative Association had interfered in nrder to seciue the discharge uf tie liberals. Among other
thingi he said that 80 men aud 14
teams were at work and that he was
assured that there wou'd be nn unfair
difcriiiiiniiist.ii.il iu Ihe employment
of either liberal o' conservative labor
While we ate nut trying tu defend
or accuse either parly we have been
asked to publish what wns said to u-
yester.l ■}-, and maintain that nil local
men who will work honestly snd snlis
faeturiiy. whether liberal, conservaiivi
ur socialist, should have a share nf ih
empl. ynieiit and th.it those who have
had least wtuk this iviuiei should bo

CRICKET LEAGUE
Revelstoke Club Suggests Interior Organization
Tbe local cricket club Iihi sent letters to all the town* and villages of
the Interior, with the prop sal to form
a league. The list of towns comprises
Robsnn, Ca tlegiir, Myncaster, Grand
Forks, Greenwood, Armstrong,Vernon,
Okanagan Centre,Kelowna,Okanagan
Mission nnd Kevelstoke. If the idea
is followed out il would be easy to
arrange cricket weeks at Revelstoke,
Nelson, Vernon and Knsslund
Matches could lirst uf all be played
: IT . niiing locnl tea ns in the three di-
vi5 s ai il tbe winning team in each
distr'. could afterwards piny fur the
chump    .ship of the whole league.
It is the intention, il the league is
organized that each team joining
shall contribute a sum of $20 per
annum for the purchase of a cup ur
trophy. Considerable local inte-est
was taken last year in the gams, and
cricket took almost lir'it place in out-
dtitir sports. A large aninnnt. 0' work
has been done nn the club's grouud.
and when the season opens practice
and team re organization will commence. By the formation of an Interior League, cricket should hold a
prominent place in tbr summer's
sporting fixtures, and as an advertising scheme which will bring in a
hands'uiie return to the city where a
cricket week ia held.

BLAUGAS
A New llluminant   Cheap and
Economical.
One ot the umst usciul inveuliuns
of late years is ibe rot ul I nf the labors
and experiments of n chemist. ..I AugP-
burg, ll.ivuri.i. The mini's iinnie is
Ilktu. ami his product is called Blmtgas,
This is, au its name suggests, an illuui-
iuant, but uf a very superior kind, «s
it is neither poisououn   nor   explosive
it will bo readily seen   thai   the   two
dangers hitherto attending the use of
gas are done away »iii. It giveB a
line light ami a grout leal of heat, aud
is especially adapt. I not only to
tliiuiestic use, but is found to be exceptionally tine For tbo purposes nf
welding and suldcriug. Tho gas
can be used iu cities in the ordinary
wny, but it can be bought in cylinders
in a liquid form aud taken for use in
tho country, uut camping or prns-
pecting, uu board ship, in fact anywhere. Small outfits can be bought
by individuals Inr their uwn use, and
it is t\o lunger necessary to lay pipes,
us with* Blaugas all that is needed is
small cupper tubing.
The points iu l.ivor of the u#w
ill umi unlit as compared with any
others are It ia cheap, convenient,
so safe as to havo tho effect ol lowering
insurance rules, ii gives great heat
and a brilliant light, aud it ia portable.
Maligns recommcuds itself highly to
peoplo in outlying districts, or in
places where on account ol tbe nature
of the soil it is dillicult to lay pipes.
A sample ol this gas was shewn on
Monday nigbt to a lew interested
citu-ns who were at once struck by its
cheapness and economy, besides convenience und range.      It   in   claimed
that  a   ten   roomed house oan be lit
lor a month lor 7.r)c. The new gas, if
it can be used practically in large
quantities, will revolutionize tho
illiiininant problem, Blaugas is used
