MonthkaIi, May 22 —In an interview to-day Mr. H H. Vaiignen, assistant to the vice-president McNicoll,
ol tbe C.P.R., said that new freight
cars ire lieing produced at the Angus
shops at tho rate of 10 a day, and tho
prospects were not only that tbis rate
would be kept up, but tbat it would
be increased within a month or sis
weeks if the general Ireight business
picked up and the crop prospects continued to be aa guild as tbey were at
present,    The passenger oar depart
ment was very busy turning out on an
average of 20 cars a month, which
rate would.lie kept up at the shops,
and even incroascd. The letting out
ot about 200 men from the Angua
shops the other day was caused, said
Mr. Vatighan, entirely by tbe lact
that the company haa decided to build
no moro locomotives. There were ao
many locomotives idle at present that
it would be f 'dish to build more. Tbe
possibilities were that no more men
would he let out.

IMPORTANT
MEETING
Resolutions Passed by Board
of Trade  re  Grand Trunk
Pacific  Construction Route
From Revelstoke.
A special meeting of the Board of
Trade wae held on Wednesday nigi.t
in the City Hall, there being a good
attendance. President F. B. Lewis
took the chair. The meeting had been
called for the purpose of discussing a
matter of vital importance to the business interests uf Revelstoke, namely
tbe making of requests to tbe Dominion and Provincial governments for
assistance towards the improvement
and opening up of transportation
facilities from Revelstoke via Columbia and Canoe rivers to Fraser river
and Tete Jaune Cache in order that
the trade and commerce incident to
the building of a large section of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway may be
secured to Revelstoke.
Iu our last issue wc described at
some length tbe proposition, which is
now the leading topic of the day in
our city commercial circles and how
important it was for Reveletoke to get
together and secure eome promise
from the governments relative to tbe
opening up of thia northern route to
the G. T. P. construction, whereby the
various contractors could easily transport supplies from this city for tbeir
railroad work.
Several speakers on Wednesday in
dilating on the feasibility of tbis
route, convinced the board tbat it waa
the one which afforded the moat likely
means of transporting supplies quickly
and cheaply since the route via Kamloops and the North Thompson is 100
miles longer and impracticable, and
tbe route via Edmonton and Yellow-
bead Pass haa been also found impracticable for a wagon road. On the
other band the route via Revelstoke
to a point on Cauoe river within 45
miles of the Fraser, near Tete Jaune
Cache, consists of an almost unbroken
stretch of navigable water, Death
Rapids being the only obstacle. This
could be overcome by a tramway of
about four miles, which, as G. S. McCarter said, could be easily built, as
recent surveys made had shown. A
steamer on the upper Columbia above
the rapids and up Canoe river as far
as the log jamb will commence running just as soon as tbe dilticultles of
Death Rapids aro overcome.
The board feel that it was the duty
of the Dominion government to construct tbe tram and thus secure the
navigation of tbe Columbia entirely.
Mr. McCarter said that a fully equipped tram would cost somewhere about
.$ 16,000 and as far as the steamboat
company were concerned, he said that
be would sooner see the tram government owned and operated than Bub-
sidised. The Board agreed that it was
the duty of the provincial government
iu view of the fact that this upper
Columbia and northern country iB
bringing into the provincial treasury
thousands of dollars of taxes and
licence fees on hundreds of square
miles of timber, to appropriate funds
for the construction of roada and other
means of getting accesa to the Canoe
river country where there are thousands of acres of agricultural land. A
strong feeling asserted itself that the
government should provide for the
opening up of tbia country and make
eome tangible promise of so doing,
which would be a guarantee to the
G. T. P. contractors to adopt this
route for the carrying of supplies for
their construction work.
It waa then moved by A. McRse
and seconded by W. M. Lawrence that
a strong resolution be sent from the
Board to tbe Dominion government,
requesting that an appropriation be
made to bnild a tram round Death
Rapida, either aa a government work
or as a subsidy to a private company.
Carried unanimously.
Copies will be sent to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, W. A. Galliher, Senator Bos-
tock and Mr. Templcman. A. Mcltae
said that all the data regarding the
tram eurveya were at Ottawa now.
Thomas Taylor, M. P. P., said that
aa soon as the anow had gone work
on tbe trail to Canoe river would lie
commenced and he felt suro that the
government would assist in any enterprise for tbe development of the
oountry.
Q. S. McCarter said tbat he thought
that the Premier and other ministers
who were iu the interior now, Bhould
be asked to come up to Revelstoke,
meet tbe Board and discuss thiB question and if passible extract some
promise tbat will reault in the work ol
opening up tbe Canoe river route
which will help ibe G.T P. contractors
besideB being a means of profit to tbe
government.
It was moved by G. S. McCartor and
seconded hy C. F. Lindmark, that an
urgent message he sent to Nelson lo
the Premier requesting hi u to return
via Revelstoke and meet the Board,
and discuss the matter.    Carried.
Mr. McCarter then read a letter from
a Pennsylvania firm asking for details
and information regarding the ad vis
ability of establishing a tannery in or
near Revelstoke. Tbe letter stated
tbat hemlock bark was getting scarce
in the Statea and that the question of
starting a tannery on tbe Columbia
where hemlock is plentiful was being
seriously taken up. Information regarding freight rates, number of hides
obtainable, quantity of hi-ml ick, cost
of lumber, labor market and other
things, was asked for. Mr. McCarter
said that the hemlock here had been
teeted as suitable for tanning purposes
and there wae a large area t f country
to draw from. A difficulty arose since
the government will not allow refuse
or aewage water to run into the Columbia, although Nelson and Rossland
are doing it at the present time.
Mr, Taylor aaid that he wasn't aware
that other cities ran tbeir sewnge
water into rivera and lakes, and if ao,
there was no reason why Kevelstoke
shouldn't, and he thought that the
government would not icfu-o on the
grounds of au industry i.eing established.
A committee consisting of G.S. McCarter, A. McRae and F. McCarty was
appointed to procure all information
re tannery possibilities.
The Mt. Victoria trail waa discussed
and a resolution passed that the government and city council get together
aud arrange for the work, as had pre-
vioualy been promised. A resolution
waa passed in which the board tenders
its regret at the departure of A. K.
Phipps, late manager of the Imperial
Bank, from Revelstoke, and acknowledging bis value as a citizen and the
good work he bud done in aiding in
tbe progress of the city.
R. Tapping wus proposed and elected
a member of tbe hoard. Tbe meeting
then terminated.
Regretable Departure
It ia with considerable regret that
we announce the departure of Mr. and
Mra. A. E. Phipps from Rcvelstcke,
after so many years of residence
amongst us. During tlici. sojourn
here they have created a large circle
of friends and by their kindness and
thoughtfulnesB have endeared them
selves to all who knew them. Mrs.
Phipps has been always closely assi-
ciated with the philanthropic work of
tbe town, and was an iiidefuligi'u'e
worker for the hospital na well as
other institutiona which bad enlisted
her services. Mrs. Phipps took a keen
interest in all social movements and
gave her beat efforts towards furthering tbeir success.
Mr. Phipps has attained general
popularity among all circles, and
whether in busineas or in movements
for the progress of the city and the
welfare of Revelstoke in general, bus
always taken an active and interested
part, giving his beet efforts for their
success. In tbo business of the Im
perial Bank, ho used impartial judgment and studied the interests ol both
that inatitution aa well aa its clients.
As a member of tbe hospital board
and board of trade, he has done good
work, and genuine regret will be felt
at his departure and Revelstoke is
loaing two of her best citizens who had
the interests of the city really at
heart.

of this north country will contribute largely to the cofforB of the

SATURDAY, MAY 23. 1908
CIVIC EVIDENCE
A fruit tree is judged by ils fruit
and a town by its inhabitants, at
least to some extent. Given a one-
horse mud-hole of a place of fifty
people who pull together and have
a lire and go about them and that
mud-hole will blossom like a rose
in June. On the other hand take
a community of two hundred and
still more, of three thousand, who
apparently do nothing all day except lie around like Chinamen in a
dope den and that town will sooner
or later go to the dogs. If a community will get to work aud pull
together and keep at it, and have
the energy and persistence and be
at all times alive to any enterprise
or scheme that will promote the
advance and progress of the city,
lhat excitement will be of the right
sort aud keep them from degenerating and getting into listless ways.
But on the other hand if they acquire the aforesaid Chinaman's
habits and only rouse after an
effort, they then degenerate too.
The absence of friction, therefore,
one way or another, be it commercially or socially, among the people of a city is in a measure a sign
of degeneration, for friction invariably creates excitement, and excitement begets renewed interest.
A town to he in a healthy coudi- I
tion must be more or less like an ',
active volcano—something doing
all the tioi-e, and if the people ars
not kicking one another and continually stirring things up it is
, evidence of a loss of vitality.

INDUSTRIAL REVELSTOKE
Although Revelstoke has always
l*-er. a popular eily both aa a resort
l'or the tourist and the travelling
public in general, and also as a
central headquarters for corunier-
cial men in the province, it is
but recently thai the possibilities of
her becoming an industrial centre
have attracted many eyes to the
exceptional advantages held out to
manufacturing investments and to
firms who are endeavoring at this
time to locate in a likely district.
Within the last few weeks many
inquiries have been made regarding the feasibility of establishing
industries here, and those who have
looked over the ground have gone
away very well satisfied with the
result? of their scrutiny. Important industrial enterprises which
can Vie operated in connection with
our owu resources are the ones to
look to, ami such has been the case
only recently when a Pennsylvania
firm communicated with some of
eiur local men regarding the possibilities of establishing a tannery
here. We have many things thai
will easily warrant the inauguration of such industries and our
facilities for such are exceptional.
Whether or no these preliminaries
will bear fruit cannot he said, al
though the outlook is promising
Revelstoke has hopes and ambitions of her own—hopes that are!
HAS NEVER TOLD PS
The convention of Uritish Columbia and Alberta Socialists takes
[..lace today at Fernie and no doubt
will have some interesting and important mutters fur discussion
relai.ive to the conducting the
affairs of the Dominion as well as
to the system under which we are
now all living. Socialism has
never yet told us distinctly, if it
has tried to tell us at all, what its
form of government is to be. (Jan
it devise a government which shall
hold all the instruments of production, distribute our industrial part",
regulate our remuneration, yet,
leave us frf-e? Without freedom
and personal choice of callings,
how could there be progress, bow
could there he invention, and how
could there be dedication to intellectual pursuits? Can the government pick out inventors, scientific
discoverers, philosophers, men nf
letters and artists,set them to work
ami assign their reward? P.y what
standard will It measure remunerations? The products ol manual
labor it mightco.iceiviibly measure,
but apparently the.pn alone.
Tlir Hoard of Trade linn forwarded h
dopy ol a resolution, passed at tli_.ii
hut meeting, to A. R Pblpp*, late
manager ol the Imperial Hunk hern,
expressing their regret at hlsdepur
lure and acknowledging the value ol
his services to the hoiitd, and ns a

BUFFALO PARKS
Commissioner Douglas Makes
Inspection.
Calgary, May 22.—Howard DouglaB
Dominion Parks Commissioner, has
returned from a ten days' inspection
trip of the buffalo parks at Lamont
and Battle River. Mr. Douglas sajs
that beyond burning a short distance
of the fence around the park at La-
mout, the recent prairie fire had done
very little damage. The buffalo had
come through tlie winter in good eon
dition, and there had only been a loss
of five head out of four hundred, or one
and a quarter per cent. There are teD
calves and about forty more are expected. Calving was not expected to
be very large this year owing to the
hard drive last fall. Huy feeding was
discontinued last Saturday, and the
animals are now rustling for them
selves.
On Wednesday Mr. Dung as went
out to inspect the new pai k on the
Battle River, which is located between
the C. P. R. and the line of tho Grand
Truuk Pacific. It contains 103,000
acres of splendid grazing land, and
will be stocked with the two hundred
and fifty auimals that yel remain to
be brought from Montana. The cou
tract for fencing this park, seventy-
two miles in length, has been let. The
contract calls for its completion by
August, which means tbe building of
one mi'e and a quarter per duy. The
Government have also reserved 5000
square miles at Jasper Pit-is for another park, lo be known ns- .lu-per Pass
Park, the scenery in which is said to
rival thai of Banff. The Grin d Trunk
Pacific Railway will pass through tbe
centre of it, and Mr. Douglas will
leave shortly to look over it, and report to the Government as to its adap
tability.
to a most serious epidemic of diptheria,
scarlel lever, measles or any other infectious disease.
"Kissing among adultH is just as
dangerous as among children, and this
f ict cannot be too widely known.
"If I could bave my way I should
abolish kissing altogether. Besides
being a positive danger to the public
health generally, it iB a stupid, insipid
custom, unworthy of twentieth century enlightenment."
GLORIOUS TWELFTH
Orange Demonstration will be
Held in Revelstoke
The "Glorious Twelfth," the great
day on which all loyal Orangemen
throughout the globe have but one
thought and take the opportunity to
make a grand rally, will be oelobrated
this year in Revelstoke mid from what
we can learn, promises to be one of the
biggest and must elaborate celebrations
that the L. O. L.'s have ever had. The
brethren and their friends from all
pans of the Kootenays, Okanagan and
Yale districts, including over a dozen
towns and cities where tho order has a
lodge, will congregate in Revelstoke
on July 12, and bold a big demonstration and other attractions in keeping
witb the season as well as the occasion.
Revelstoke knows how to draw large
crowds and handle them as well and it
is estimated that several thousand
visitors will be iu the city that day on
pleasure bent. This being the case it
is not too early to begin thinking of
what amusements shall be provided
for our guests and what we can du to
make the demonstration an assured
success.

EXPRESS CHARGES REDUCED
New Tariff on American Lines
Takes Effect.
Vancouver, May 22.—A radical reduction in express charges on American lines took place on Wednesday,
when the Great Northern and all other
express companies, acting under orders
from headquarters, will lower their
rates in conformity with suggestions
made by the interstate commerce commission.
The general reduction will result in
more brisk trade, for under the recent
system business men who express large
quantities of stuff, hold- all small
parcels until they are able to express
them in bulk form. This will not
now be necessary, and consequently
much delay will be averted.
CHINESE POLL TAX

Ottawa, May 22.—The poll tax of

Under the terms of the act half the
tax goes to the Dominion and half to
British Columbia where nearly all the
celestials remain.
The finance department is fin warding a cheque to the provincial government for $346,000, lieing half the total
amount received. The entries of
Chinese in these provinces were as
follows; Ontario 1, Saskatchewan 1,
New Brunswick 4, Nova Scotia 3, and
Quebec 74.

PINK   DOMINOES"
Amusing Production on Monday
by Revelstoke Amateurs
No more fitting way of ending up a
holiday on Monday cm be found tlinn
by reserving a seat at the opera house
to witness the performance of "Pink
Dominoes." This piece is entirely
new to ibe RevelBtuke theatre-going
public, uud 19 a high-class comedy in
three acts. From the rise to the fall
of the curtain the interest in the various ludicrous and laughable situations
in which the different characters Iii d
themselves will keep the audience in
a state of simmering mirth. The plot
is woven rouud the suspicions which
wiveshave over the tecret doings of
their husbands anil lhe latter fall
readily into the trap cleverly laid for
them, although the ladies have some
explaining to do themselves. The res
taurant eeene is particularly comical,
and shows the terrible tangle into
whicli the actors have got themselves.
The amateurs have taken special pains
to give the public a gsiod, clever nnd
amusing show for their holiday pro
gram and Revelstoke will have an
opportunity ef winding up a pleasant
day witb a good, long, hearty laugh.
