A Delightfully Refreshing Comedy Drama
That Revelstoke is up-to-date in the
matter of dramatic productions is
evidenced by the fact tbat "The Little
Minister," which will be seen at the
opera house tomorrow nigbt, has recently had a very successful run in
Vancouver, and is one ol tbe stellar
attractions tbis week in Winnipeg
during tbe tig annual bonspiel. Clean,
wholesome, and lull of heart throbs,
J, M. Barrte's refreshing comedy drama
'The Little Minister" is a play which
appeals to all. There is no mystifying
plot to burden or weary, but an easily
grasped snd fascinating love story
which is charmingly unfolded, snd
will prove one of ;he most delightful
performances it has been the privilege
of the Revelstoke publio to enjoy for
many a lung day. The f.dlowin . is
the oast.

Great Factor in the Progress
of Revelstoke Business
As an evidence of tbe growth of the
business interests of Revelstoke and of
the large amount of work really carried un both in the city and surrounding districts, tbe monthly statistics ol
the Revelstoke, Trout Lake and Big
Bend Telephone Company need no
comment. The telephone is practically an artery of commerce, aod Its
value as such oannot be over estimated. Tbe local telephone com piny
has been, perpaps, the chief factor in
tbe increase ol the volume oi Revelstoke's business, and has been.largely
instrumental iu giving the city the
great impetus iu the bid lor the trallic
ol the interior. While people are apt
to think little of a telephone, except
as a public convenience, yet on the
other baud its value cannot bo too
highly considered. Those who arc on
the service will readily agree that the
telephone is a necessity, and for the
really reasonable cost to individuals
lor installation, lent, etc., it is surprising that more du not take advantage of the benefit. Tbo local company has been enterprising in its long
distance lines, as well as up-to-date
fixtures throughout the city, und the
fact that an uninterrupted service is
maintained during all weathers, is by
no means an insignificant one. Mr
Cowan, the president, has given us
the following statistics for 1908: Number of calls, 255,8112; largest number
of calls in one day, 1,032; largest
number of calls in one hour, 107.

Revelstoke Game Wardens
Now tbat Revelstoke aud its surrounding districts have become so
prominent as valuable -porting and
hunting grounds, it is necessary tbat
tbe game iu the vicinity should be
properly protected and conserved. We
would suggest tbat tbe provincial
government appoint one or moro
game wardens who would have this
duty to attend to. At present tbe
provincial constable is the only game
warden we bave, and while he is not
engaged in his regular work he oan
give bis time to the care ol the game
conservation, but he cannot do as
much as il wardens were appointed
especially lor that purpose.
We trust tbat tbis matter will bo
taken up at once and arrangements
made lor this season's work, and that
appointments can he made so that
Revelstoke's game may be tlie pride
ot the interior.
Ou Friday uight the Beavers will he

game of the provinoe ere in

for reproduction in a newspaper,but it
will i pay reading by oil sportsmen

British Columbia and their preservation.
The special grant of $10,1)110 made
last year for tho lirst time by tbe
legislature has bean but little drawn
upon, as the revenue from licenses
ninl su forth conies to within some
$200 of that amount. At the suine
time ihe revenue thus assured has
permitted the engaging of game wardens who have dune good work. Atl-
ditiniiil game wardens are recommended, and it. is pointed out thut in
addition to their ordinary duties tiny
are frequently able to lend valuable
assistance to tlie provincial police.
In the Easl Kootenay reserve the
game is increasing and it is suggested
that tho reserve I e made a permanent
national park. Tlie importation of
European red deer and ohaurois is suggested, and it is pointed out that the
former have been most successively
acclimated in New Zealand.
.Moose are increasing and spreading
further south, as are also cariboo.
A plea is entered fnr the grizzly bear,
said to be nearing extermination in
some sections. He is said to be really
very timid, aud it is suggested that it
be prohibited to trap him.
The beaver havo increased enormously in Southern British Columbia,
and in sume parts ol Kootenay, Okanogan, Similkaineen and Kamloops
sulliciently to be a nuisance to fruit
growers. Permission lo kill them
under restrictions is suggested.

reputation. He wishes to announce that his entire stock will
be included in this sale. The new
spring goods already received
must go at prices just as phenomenally low.

A Local   Institution   of Which
Revelstoke is Justly Proud
Not the least important of the many
iiistitutinns which thrive in Kevelstoke
in the Amateur Dramatic Club, now in
the tilth year|ol its existence. The
production by a number of local artists
of the well known Irish drama, "The
Colleen Bawn." was the initial step in
the formation of the club, and on the
Is' of June, 1004, one week after the
presentation of tbe above drama, the
Revelstoke Amateur Dramatic Club
was organized, with the "Colleen
Rawn" caste, as the original members.
Since that time the career ol tbe club
bas been quiet and unassuming, the
plaudits wbicli bave crowned their
many efforts being received with he
coming in desty. Fortunate indeed
was  it   fnr  the  dob,   tint  tbry bad,
during the lirst two years of their
existence, the assistance of Mr. T. 11.
Dunne, under whose careful training
and guidance as stage manager, tbey
made rapid progress, and to whose
efforts the success which ban attended
the club is in n great, measure responsible. Much credit is nls.i due to
Mrs. Dunne, who was a faithful and
untiring worker iu tbe club up to the
time n[ tbeir removal frum tlie city in
the Bpring of lilOli.
Comparatively short as bas been tbo
career of tbe Dramatic Club, the members thereof are deserving of hearty
congratulations at tbe bands of the
citizens for the many pleasing entertainments tbey have given. Among
playB which bave been produced by the
club are thdfollowing: "DickTurpin,"
"Slasher and Crasher,'' "Ticket ol
Leave Man," "The Lady of Lyons."
"-6100,000," "Dandy Dick," "Meg's
Diver-ii n," "Colleen Dawn,'' "Chiselling."   "Caste,"    "Jane,"   "Pink    l)i-
uie'iy "Isne    as presooted by Amateur Dramatic Club.

Bul it, is this very fact of stick-to-it-
iveness that has enabled the club to
give such worthy productions. It has
always been their aim to make these
productions as complete in detail as
possible, and in this rispect tbey differ
largely frnm the professional company

favored hut more often Inflicted.
