CITY COUNCIL
By-laws Regulating Use of City
Water to be Rigidly Enforced
A special meeting of the City Council was held last night wfth Mayor
Lindmark and Aldermen Lefeaux,
Stone, Woodland and Finite present.
The notice covering the meeting
was read. The nutvoi staled that the
chief object of calling Ihe council together was to discuss and call for tenders for tbe erection uf a pavilion on
tbe Agricultural Society's groun 's, for
exhibition purposes. The time was
short and the work of building should
be commenced at once.
After some discussion of plans a
resolution was passed that tenders be
called for the erection of the exhibition pavilion on tbe Fair grounds, tbe
tenders to be in by 6 p.m on Friday,
Aug. 21, and that tbe work of supervision and plans, etc , be left in the
hands of the Mayor and Aid Foote.
The question of boulevarding certain sections of tbe city was brought
up, tbe council finding it necessary to
employ a man to supervise the work
and give estimates of cost. A resolution wis passed that J. Maley be seen
ou the matter.
A resolution was passed vo ing $10-
from the city treauuy towards the
reception last week of the New Westminster lacr bse champions when
passing through the city.
The questiou ol luuse and street
numbering and lhe purchase of numbers and signs was considered, nothing
definite being decided upon.
The council ordered tbat ,250 feet of
4 inch pipe he laid from Swan Carl-
Sun's bouse to the city limit to serve
the residents iu that section with
water nud that a hydrant be put in at
the edge of the I hub h fur lire protection piup ses.
Reports came in to the council uf
residents Hasting water while sprinkling, being a direct violation of the
by-law and recent notices giving
warning of such waste. Tbe. council
Were informed that the chief of police
had stated lhat he could nut lind tim.
togoafier all residents who wanted
water and since an adequate water
pressure for lire purposes was absolutely necessary and people should te
made to tcaltze lhat fuel, a resolution was passed licit the police must
summons an; one violating the bylaws relating lu the usages of water
ami the chi.f if -olive be asked to

FERNIE SITUATION
Building   Progress-$200,000
Paid to Miners.
Feknik, August 18.—Hon. William
Teniplcman, also Hon. Richard McBride, are expected in Fernie today.
They will probably have a conference
in regard to the respective attitude of
the Dominion and Provincial governments concerning relief work here.
A general inquest will be   held   to- j
morrow evening on   all   the   victims
who perished in tbe Fernie disaster.
Two weeks have elapsed since the
fire and nearly 100 temporary buildings bave gone up or are in course of
construction. Tbe town is very busy,
and all are doing their utmost in
making preparations for comfort for
tbe winter.
Fernie is rebuilding faster than did
San Francisco.
Saturday was pay day in the Crow's
Nest Collieries when over $200,000 was
paid out to tbe miners. Tbis will
greatly relieve many.
CRICKET
BOXING EXHIBITION
Lombard, the Champion Lightweight. Did Clever Work
'1 he boxing contest's in the Rink i n
Wednesday night, created inl little
interest judging by the few spectators
that snrr.-iiiided ll-u ring, Harry
Lombard, the lightweight ohampi n
of the s iuih and Kdilis. Ilohan had a
preliminary b ut, Unban being
knocked out in the fourth found by a
woll delivered blow. Hoban put up
a good defence, but was not a match
for Lombard. In the second match
Lombaid n.ct Rob Parker, of Seattle,
in an interesting and clever li_ht.
Parker is a welterweight of no small
reputation and is well known in this
city, and put up a hard bout for
Lombard. Both men gave a fine exhibition of boxing, Parker being
weakened in the eighth round. Lombard is without doubt a clever fighter,
sure iu defence aud lightning like in
attack, his blows being clean and
neat. Tbe exhibition uu Wednesday
night was a good demonstration of
scientific boxing. Lombard has left
for New Westminster and San Fran'
cisco, where be bas engagements.
Large Gold Output
Vancouveb, B. C, August 18th.—
The gold production of the Cariboo
district tbis season will surpass the
records of many years past, according
to Mr. John Hopp, of Seattle, wbo is a
guest at the Hotel Vancouver. Mr.
Hopp bas been operating up there for
nearly twenty years. He owns a large
area ol ground on Williams and adjacent creeks.
" I should nut be surprised if the
output in tbe Cariboo Ibis season
reaches about half a million dollars.
Very favorable conditions for bydrau-
licing operations prevail. The season
haa beeu sufficiently backward to
regulate the melting of tbe snow on
the high peaks, ensuring a steady aod
satisfactory supply uf water. 1 look
for a still larger production next year
as many of the companies are just
getting into shape to work valuable
ground,"
EDUCATIONAL! ARRANGEMENT
Inspector Gillis Will Succeed
Inspector Gordon
It is anuouuoed that in taking up
the educational work for the pending
year ihere will be some changes made
iu the placing of the different provincial inspectors. Mr. Gillis will be

taking the position now occupied by
J. S. Gordon. The latter will go to
Vancouver Island, while G. H. Dean,
recently appointed inspect r, will go
to lhe Kootenays. The vacancy has
been created through the retirement
of D. Wilson, who has been appointed
lu take chingc of the distribution ol
the free school hunks, which the
Previncial Government in teds furnish"
ing tbe school children of British
Columbia, c tiimeiicing on the reassembly of the schools after the

Okanagan Team to Visit Revelstoke Next Week.
Lovers of cricket will have the best
enjoyment of tbe season in watching
an all day cricket match on the club
ground on Tuesday, Aug 25th. South
Okanagan Sports Club is one of the
best aggregations of cricketers in tho
interior, and although looal players
have conspicuously shone this season,
Revelstoke will be lucky indeed to
secur'i a win this time.
Of the matches played on the recent
successful tour of the Revelstoke
cricket club, no match was so enjoyable and no club provided such excellent arrangements for the enteatrin
meut uf our men as did the Soutb
Okanagan Spurts Club at Okanagan
Mission. The ladies of the neighbourhood for miles around, came and by
their presence, added to tbe pleasure
of tbe game.
Preparations are b ing made for the
pleasure and entertainment of - our
visitors and a cordial invitation is
given to Ihe ladies of uur city to share
tbat entertainment. C. M. Field,
assisted by many laily friends will
have charge of these preparations.
As is but. right and proper. Revelstoke shares enthusiastic delight in
the success of the popular win of New
Westminster in lacrosse, and surely
some enthusiasm can bs looked for
from our city on the sweeping victory
of the local cricketers, who have
proved their right to be considered
the best cricket club in tbe interior.
The few last cricket matches of the
cup series are productive of more interesting play owing to the rivalry
between the Maple Leaf and Shamrock
teams in their effort to avoid the
unenviable pi .ce at the foot of the
coinpetiti ui.
Ou Saturday, Aug. 15th, the match
resulted in a ivin for tbe Maple Leaf's
by the narrow margin of nine runs
on the lirst innings. The pitch was
not tbe hesi that could bu chosen, and
this acci.iinieil in some measure for
the failure of batsmen, but it was
certainly fsivnl'alile to the bowlers, and
tbey look advantage of their opportunity. Brier, the captain of the Maple
Leaf's, taking six wickets for live runs
which is his best performance with
the hall this season.
When the Maple Leaf went in to
Imt a s. ciinil lime, two men weie

FAIR PLAY
Revelstoke people ure still waiting ami wondering nt the incomprehensible action ol the Provincial
government in the breach of faith
over the traffic bridge question,
ami in thi* matter Revelstoke citizen, stand united. Although we
have from time to time in theae
column? di«cti??ed the bridge and
the action of the government in
connection with it. complaining
lhat our people have heen unjustly
treated, there ha? lieen no reply
either from the government them-
.elve?, their agent or their representative, and in the face of the
-iight thus placed on RevelBtoke
citizen? there can only be une alternative. Mr. Fulton's actions
while in tbis city several week?
ago, were far from satisfactory,and
when on his return to go over the
ground he made a definite promise
of an answer within ten days. Tins
promise lias lieen as quietly Ignored
as it was glibly made and was
immediately .wallowed by the
public with their usual meekness,
We blame the people inasmuch as
they seem quite ready to taki- whatever is handi-il out tu tlmm, and in
their own little Beets anil circles
resolve and swear all manner of
things and Utterly complain of
their treatment to each Other,
whereas if they got out antl tli?-
oussed these questions In public
and voiced their opinion among
friend? and foes alike of the government, they would do more good
and serve their own ends better.
Publio opinion if heard in public
will have more weight than if
voiced to a few anil on the traffic
bridge question Revelstoke is
much of the same opinion. Our
jieuple want fair play and expect
to get it.

citizens gave a thought to the cele-
lirntion of this great event, an
event which perhaps is as important to the destiny of our western
home, as any subsequent occurrence. The true loyalist to British
Columbia cannot but feel pride in
this provincialism and let his heart
warm towards the hind of his
adoption. The hope and future of
11. C. lies in her children. The
perplexing questions uf today will
lie in the hands of our offsprings
for solution after we are dust, and
our swords turned to rust. In
their training to u full, sweet
womanhood, and a virile manhood
is our hope as a nation. To this
end we want our education freed
from politics und teachers big
enough to know tlieir power and
privileges, strongly possessed of the
truth that dollars do not spell
"well being," and that all questions
must be settled not to self interest
but by justice and merciful considerations and not mercenary
ones. We want in B.C. an aroused
public opinion, and we wont our
broadest minded men to forego
personal cure and take bold of the
helm. Thus for moral and intellectual appeals, but with n diversity
of attractions thnt the prairies can
never offer, B. C. has seemed to
wait for some god-trom-lhe-ma
chine to strike her hour of destiny.
The greatness nf a country dues
not depend upon its material resources, but upon the character nf
its people. History is mankind's
message delivered to every man,
history is looking backward that
we may intelligently look forward.
National character lias been buili
up through struggles, poverty and
harshness of conditions. Should
the development of our natural
resources anil the intrusion of
thousands o! new people increase
our trade would that wealth without concomitant mental awakening
and character-development spell
well being for liritish Columbia?
JUBILEE OF B. C.

OL:U CITY STREETS.
Complaints tire continually coming to uur ears from owners of
vehicles and horses, of the condition of our city streets, ami these
complaints are by no means without grounds. There are few streets
in the city limits that have any
pretentions to being in good condition, which fact cannot be overlooked. The system thai lias, in
previous years, been adopted by
council, of putting gravel and
boulders on the roads promiscuously, without any degree ir idea
of permanency, ha- now resulted
in abominably surfaced ircets,
which is hardly the -urt of thing
one expects to sen in a city like
this. The roads are now covered
with a multitude ol various sized
stones which am a menace to
horses feet and a source of annoyance and harm to vehicles that
pa"? over them. We would strongly
urge the council to take steps and
order these stones, antl other obstructions removed before Fair
time when the present.condition of
Revelstoke roads, which oannot
but call forth harsh criticism and
complaint from all quarters, should
be wisely remedied.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Editor .Maii.-iik.iiai.ii.
Sir : Will you kindly allow me
space in your valuahle paper for a few
remarkK in reply to previous letters
on the snhji'ct of so called "Sociolism"
hut which in reality is "elissism," for
they seem impervious to all hut one
aspect of our social condition—the
lack of means to carry out the desire
for their own ease and gratification of
their natural passions. They never
attack hut one point only in our whole
civil administration, namely, what
they are pleased to term "tie
unjust relation between Capital and
l.ahor," or to ti8« the words of t grent
man " thei- continual cry is that he
thut carneih wages, earneth wages to
put into a hag with holes." The holes
are the capitalists, who keep hack the
greater part of the wealth produced
by Labor and appropriate to their o„n
use.
That in sonic instances this may
occur, 1 am not disposed to deny, but
it very seldom occurs in the case of
manual laluir, hut frequently in the
case of those that handle machinery
or direct labor and on whose faithfulness and skill depend not only the
amount of wealth produced but sbo
the lives of the workmen.
If we apply to Mr. Le Fetus's   principle that a man   should   he   paid   in
proportion to the benefit oi his labor
to society it   will   he   found   that   the
unskilled lahorer   is  overpaid   already
as compared   with   skilled   lahor,   hut
somehow the Socialist laborer   has gut
it into hie   load   that   everything   depends on him      He sees that the vast
amount of  wealth   in   the   world  and
suddenly exclaims "tin-   is  t.lie  pro-
I duct of  my  labor,"   oblivious  to  the
'fact tbat  the   sun   a ,i.   the   rain   do
1 more by a thousand tunes  to  produce
the fruit of   the   earth   than   all   the
labor of man.    When ne consider  tie
j mere physical labor   we   cannot   lie'p
i ?eeing that   hy far  the greater portion
1 is   accomplished   by   means   ol   machinery, horses and   other  animals so
; that the   amount   of   man 's    physical
11      ,- very   -tuall   in   proportion   to
; the amount of wealth   produced   from
all sources,
If tin- si,11 ,ii_t insists upon  .••-■1,
i ing tlie (u il measure of tbe product
j his lalmr and nothing more,   Ste
take   from   bim   the   benefit   di   ived
from the use of tools invented by the
mental capacities ol  others   not   included by tbe Socialist   in   tbe  reslni
of "lahor, "for he  must   either   pay  an
adequate  amount   for  the invention
itself (nr a royalty [or   the  use   of   the
tools produced hy the Inventor or his
representative.       In      what    position
would be ii"'! himself (deprived ol the
tools invented by others) in the attempt to produce sufficient  wealth  to
keep htii.   as   is'iinfurtahly   as   ne   now
lives.    Would he not be forced   to  the
conclusion that he disv noi produce
 1 per cent,  ol tbe  wealth   ins  now
enjoys.    In    (art.   uol      ne   man   in   a
thousand (aside from inventors) produce* enough wealth to furnish liiin-
kelf with comforts of modern lile.
Other men who have kdiip before DS
liiiv-s lalsored anil wis are enjoying the
fruits of   their   lahor      limy   provided
houses, clothing andj food   for which
we labored not. The world iPips not
owe "every man" a living, hut it does
owe those men who have harnessed
the powers of nature for the production of wealth.
Could ten thousand Socialists in
one month produce as much wealth
hy their own energies alone, as the
inventions of Thomas EdliOn produce
in one day. I think not. .lustiee
tines not demand that, Thomas Kdison
should hum the midnight oil invent
ing the machinery for the benefit of
the ln.li.rer who sleeps the profound
sleep of a tired hody and an unfruitful
brain.

effected while there. Harry, tha 14
year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ely, 105
Fairfield Road, Victoria, was brought
to the healer as the last resort, before
undergoing an operation for appendicitis. After 20 minutes with Mr.
Olney he left the office entirely cured.
In Vancouver "Mrs. Snartss was healed
of tumors, stomacli trouble and rheu
matiiiu at a public demonstration of
the healer's power before an audience
of 1100 people. These are only two
of the hundreds of people he has
cured and they wil, s*lad!y answer all
questions. Mr. Olney was born with
this power to heal the rick, his first
cure having beeu affected" at the age
ol seven years. So great is his power
and so wonderful his cures, that scientists have investigated his work and
acknowledged that the prophecy of
Jesus wss made to be fulfilled when
He said: "As I have done, so shall
others do after Me."
Mr. Olney would like to explain his
work to the public and cordially invites every one to meet him in tbe
parlors of the Union hotel daily from
9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
He treats all diseases and it behooves tbe people of this city to see
the healer while he is here. He not
only heals tbe sick, but teaches bow
to heal yourself and others.
Consultation ie free and his advice
will aid you.
