B. C. Government Provides Substantial Sum
H. Manning, Ed. Edwards and W.
W. Foster, who bave been at Victoria
mt a deputation from the School Board
to wait on the government with a re-
qii"at for a sum ol money for the nm
b hool building at Revelstoke returned
y. sterday.
Mr Manning informed the Mail-
HERAl.n that ihey bad been received
very cordially by tbe government, belore whom tbey had laid their plans
and speculations for the uew w irk.
The Premier, Hon. T. Taylor, Hon
Dr. Young and Supt. Robinson took a
keen interest in the details ol the
plans, asking numerous questions as
to tbe M'-ength of tin material, the
locatiju of fixtures, room .pace, etc.
All of which were answered in a manner wbicb showed that the school
board delegates had con)e down thoroughly prepared to go into tbe minutest matters that might require ex
planation; in fact, the Premier com
piimented Mr. Manning on tbe
thoroughness ul bit Work, and declared
that tbe deputation had come pre
pared to explain the cause fully and
Tbe plana submitted have been approved by the government, with the
exception of a fen minor parte. The
government stated tbat they required
a "deadener" to be placed between tbe
lluors between the two storeys, so that
tbe sound from the one would nut interfere with the other. It was sIbo decided to remove the store room from
the top lluor and locate it ou tbe
ground Hoot, as the government intend
at an early date to establish libraries
in all the B. C. schools. Tbe requirements for ligbt and air space are fully
up to tbe government standard.
In answer to tbe request from tbe
deputation tbe government have
agreed to appropriate $16,000, or probably onc-tbird of tbe total cost, and
an ollicial ratification of this has been
sent to tbe loard.
Tbe school trustees will meet tomorrow night and take up the question, and will probably prepare and
submit s petition lor a bylaw to go
belore the people (or the raising by
debentures of the balance of ibe money.
There can be do question of the
issue. A new building is needed, and
as the government have condemned
the room on tbe third floor of the
present building as being unsuitable
for children, some prompt steps must
be taken to arrange for the proper
housing uml accommodation ot the
children, wbioh are today crowded an
Edison Parlor Theatre is being
The Edison Parlor Theatre has been
closed this wiek Ior repairs and alterations. Special attention is being
paid to the seating accommodation
md the Hour is being raised in a gentle inclii.e to the rear of Ihe building
so that an uninterrupted view of the
screen can be obtained. The galleries
too are being enlarged, und an increased number of chairs installed.
D. McCarthy has charge of the work.
R. K. Copeland is doing tbe curtain
and stage decorations.
It is tbe intention of the management to reopen on Friday and Saturday with a special programme of new
aod interesting pictures including,
"Australian Sports." Tbese scenes
depict true Australian bush life, showing log chopping contest, rough riding,
and borse steeple chasing. This lat
ter subject is highly life-like and
sensational, showing tbe burses at the
jump, several a cidents where tbe
riders were carried off tbe course hurt.
Australian horses are perhaps tho
finest breed in the world and as race
horses they cannot be excelled.

Would Ruin Home Lift)
New   York,   March   24.—In   the j
Outlook appears the   first   article   by
Theodore Roosevelt on Socialism. The
ex president says:
"On the social and domestic side,
doctrinaire socialism would replace
the family and home life by a glorified
state free lunch counter and a state
foundling asylum, deliberately enthroning self-indulgence as the ideal,
witb, on its darker side, tbe absolute
abandonment uf all morality as between man and woman."

Commercial Activity on all
Sides—The Signs of the
limes A Mecca for Tourists
and jportsmen.
T! .- lust days of tbe winter lull
of commercial activity are fast
drawing to a close and the world of
labor will soon assume tbe garb of
productive energy. Tbe winter
months have heen spent in plan
ning nnd scheming ont the course
of action for the coming spring,
and tlie slimmer campaign of com-
netitive business operations. Every
■ranch of commeicial progress bus
now i;s plans matured, and already
is tlie stream ui business represen
'alive,- spreading over lhe whole of
British Columbia,offering the latest products, sn essential in this
fast progressing era to success, to
the retail merchants to be again
displayed before the novelty seeking
The commercial year has opened
early in Revelstoke and the dislnct
generally. In n brief space of time
our mills, which have been closed
down fur the winter and have been
undergoing repairs and improvements will once more assume the
busy side of their utility. The
coming season promises to be a
banner one for Hevelstoke.
From authenticated reports there
will be a revival in mining industries and with the influx of capital,
the many valuable properties adjacent to tbe city will again resume
operations. The Big Bend will be
even mure fully explored and tbe
rich ninl valuable resources of Unit
vast country of incalculable wealth
will be developed with muru spirit,
/.est and enterprise than of any
previous year. Willi efficient
means of communication, trails,
roads and trains, that area immediately lu the north of us will make
Kevelstoke the most important city
of the interior of 11. (.'. The heavy
snowfall of the past winter will directly affect mining operations, the
bountiful supply of water, which is
so essential to placer and hydraulic
niining,catising the valuable properties round the Columbia to be more
fully worked. Nature, aided by
the ingenuity of man will return
her wealth readily and plentifully.
And not only is tbe prospect of a
busy season confined merely to commercial enterprises which necessitates such enormous pay rolls to be
placed in circulation. but good
times, glorious climatic conditions
as are to be found only in the
mountain cities such as this, and
the incoming of settlers and others
who must need circulate the dollars—these are the things which
attract the tourist and the home-
The tourist trallic this year
promises to be tbe heaviest on
record and it is up o tbe citizens
and all interested in the welfare of
Hevelstoke to get together an' endeavor to attract some of that
stream of tourists who will pass
through our portals, bent on excitement, novelty anil amusement,
to attract tbem litre and give them
a good run for tbeir money. The
circulation of coin is a great factor
in the city's prosperity, ami when
all these things are considered the
citizens will feel a sense of pride in
their city, when its beauties and
attractions are spread far and wide.
There is a time in tlie tide of Revelstoke's affairs wbicli taken at its
Hood leads on to prosperity and if
,ve are alive to the situation we
will all swim witb the tide which
is now fast approaching and will
soon be upon us.

Brains and Blushing
Terhapa it will interest all the Bevelstoke girls In know thai an eminent
Kngitih medical psychologist has recently dpclaied that it rti| lires brains
tu blush, that the ability to blush is in
direct mio to mental sle'tties-, and
that blushing is an aohiev m nl ul
which every one should i.e pre ml, for
it is a positive sigu ol au active brain.
Idols cannot blush, nnd neither can
animals. Similarly infants du not
blush, although tbey learn to do so
at an early age, just as souti, in fact,
us the brain begins to exercise its
higher functions. Moreover, the blush
cannot be caused by any physical
means; it is the inin.l which must be
affected. The latter ie especially true,
and at this spring season in particular.
Construction  Could  Be Expedited- Preliminary Work.
There seems to be some unnecessary
iclay in the actual oonstruotion of the
government trallic bridge ever the
Columbia at this pi uu. A.though
large quantities ul brush and nek
have I ecu li, tiled it atl.v, tbih ,a about
tbe only actual mirk that has been
done. The eastern ami western appro ichcs could very well hiwe been
comi en-cil weeks ago, us mere is
considerable wor) to be done • n 'hem
iiltuie. Again, there was nothing to
prevent the contractus diivng tbe
piles for the piers, p'acing tbe matt
i.iss and ruck work ill posili n autl
getting the Bpaiis fr«mid out in tin
lumber yard. Regarding false wurk,
ii Wi u ii ■ perhaps inadvisable tu du
anytliii. nth iliein until nber high
Water 1 reused have been node-
lay in Un procuring of pile drivers,
for there are quite a number in the
vicinity which could be very veh b
tsined. The delay iu geiting lo actual
work seems unnecessary, and much
time has been iubl during lhe past
mouth or so which cuuld very well
have been ustd Io advantage.
Electric Light Rates.
Kamloops has brought in a new rate
for electric light as follows: Maximum
number ef lights allowed on flat rate
to be two instead ol three ns proposed
Discount on flat rate to be 10 per cent
instead ul 20 per cent. This bylaw
provides a substantial reduction ol
light rates on the meter system, while
slightly advancing the price on a Iiul
rate, which fur each 10 candle power
light will be ifl.25 per month; 10 candle power 12 for tbe same period, with
discount as above. Charges on metei

Data on Fruit Plants
The liiiti-h Columbia govenriiient is
now gathering information respecting
fruit canneries and cold storage plants
so as to he able to deal with tbe subject intelliiieiitly.aays tbe Commercial.

season. It is learned that it is the in
tentiou ol the provincial government
to lend   financial assistance  t .ward

a considerable amount of money will be

to erect a cold storage plant at. Agar-

all the shipments from the lower Hrs-

coast points. Another will be built at
Kevelstoke one at okuniuigau Landing and a (uurth at Nelson. While

Talk of Increasing Prices
The question ol an increase in the
price ol lumber produced on the const
