GAME WARDEN'S VIEWS
«. Bryan Williams Will Recommend an Open
Grouse Season in Kootenay
A. Bryan Williams, Provincial Game
Warden, came through Revelstoke on
No. 117 00 Friday evening. He was
returning to the Coast alter superintending the erection of the camp f r
the Governor-General in the Columbia
Valley, about thirty milea from Windermere, He says that Earl Grey is
expected to be io camp there on Sept.
9th, ae he will come ou west directly
after opening the new bridges across
false Creek in Vancoi-ver on Sept.
Sib. They have erected a number of
cabins lor the Governor-General and
lis stall', and Mr. Williams thioks it
au ideal place lor camping and hunting. He ia in lact greatly impressed
with the possibilities ol the Columbia
Valley from every standpoint, and
helievcs it is on the eve of great
development. There is every indication that the Kootenay Central
railway will be proceeded with, snd
that will mean the opening ol the
whole valley below Golden to settlement. He believes tbat it is rich
both in agricultural and mining possibilities.
Speaking ol the game laws Mr.
Williamsi-iiid the reason why au Order
iu Council had been passed prohibiting
the shooting ol grouse iu East and
West Kootenay this season waB that
reports had come in that grouse were
becoming very scarce in those die-trie's
Grouse snooting was, however, allowed
in Columbia district, aud after looking
more closely into tbe matter he saw
no reason why it should not be allowed here also, and he was going to
recommend to the Government thai
the season be re opened on September
15th. Prairie chicken are not allowed
to be killed at any time. The reason
why the shooting of bull moose south
ot the 52nd parallel had been prohibited was tbat along the main line of
the Cl' R. tbey were becoming very
scarce, and it was desired to protect
them. In regions more remote from
tbe railway they were more plentiful
and there was less indiscriminate
shooting. The government had now
entered ou a policy of game protection
and they were trying so to administer
it iu different aistricts so that game
might be preserved Ior all time il
possible
CORRESPONDENCE
School By-law
K'liti.r Mail-Hekaui.
Sir : In a few days the citizens of
Revelstoke will be called upon to
pronounce on a bylaw for the pur
chase of certain grounds indispensible
for school purposes, but at present
illegally occupied, and for the acquiring of Block No. 52 contiguous to
the school and equally necessary for
educational development, under the
heading of playground. It should
hardly be necessary to urge tbe pass
ing of these iletns, as their importance
to the city is obvious, but inasmuch
as previous propositions relating to
civic expenditures have sometimes
been passed and occasionally defeated
on ridiculously small vote totals,
proves the possibility of a slight per
centage of those privileged to vote
dominating the whole thrjugh sheer
negligence of the latter. Let it not be
so in this matter, and with that idea
in view, a word or two on the subject
may not be outol place.
At present the ally bisecting the
enclosed public Bchool grounds does
not belong to tbe city, the ownership
having reverted to the Revelstoke
Realty Co. (G. M. Sproat).
The ground occupied by the High
school building is a public thoroughfare and the small angular portion of
real estate extending from tbe approach to the building towards the
I O.O.F. brick hall and constantly
used by the pupilB, is also the property
ol the same concern.
That company long ago notified the
city to cease trespassing on their
holdings and it is fortunate that the
town bas not been summoned as
defendants in expensive litigation as
a conBtquence ol its negligence to
comply. The question of amicable
settlement is now diructly in the
hands of the citizens themselves,
either to purchase, vacate the premises
or let the irratter drift to the decision
ol a court judge with incidental costs.
Which is it to be ?
1'erhaps no topic has so earnestly
engaged the attention of metropolitan
communities of late as Irec and convenient play grounds lor energetic
yuiiths. Boys especially have got to
expend their energy In sonic lorm or
mother, and i' nnl vented iu harmless
pUj it will assuredly be  employed in
probable vandalism. Judge Lindsay,
ot Denver, in a recent address remarked: "The boy is to be formed
rather than reformed," which is valient
to the old Baying: "An ounce of
prevention is preferable to a pound of
cure." The boy who engages in play
is not bo likely to be arraigned lor
smoking cigarettes. Education itself
consists not entirely in absorbing what
may be found in books, but iB also to
be acquired on the field of healty
sport.
In the model city of Toronto juve
nile court lines and penalties have
beeu largely obliterated by a judicious
and liberal expenditure in well appointed playgrounds lor girlB and
boys.
Some plain speaker has written the
following:
Plenty ol room  lor dives  and  dens,
glitter and glare and sin;
Plenty ol room for prison cells, gather
the criminals in;
Plenty of room  for jails and  courts,
(willing enough to pay),
But uever a place for the lads to race,
no never a place to play.
Plenty ol room lor shops and  stores,
(Mamon must bave tho best);
Plenty  of room for the ruining sores
that rot in the city's breast;
Plenty of room for the lures that lead
the hearts of our youths astray,
But  never a cent on a play ground
spent; no never a place to play.
Plenty of room for schools and plenty
of room for art,
Plenty   of room  for  teas  and   balls,
platform, stage and mart.
Proud is the city—she  finds  a  place
fur many a tad to day,
But she's more than blind il she fails
to find a place for the boys to play
Give tbem a chance for iunocent sport;
gue them a chance lor fun—
Better a playground plot thnn a court
and a jail where the harm is done
Give them a chance; il you stiut them
now, to-morrow you'll have to pay,
A larger bill for a darker ill, so give
them a place to play.
If we, the citizens of Revelatoko, are
willing to have our schools 011 the
street, let us not blame the boys, il
they learn the ways of the street and
later on remind us ol our monetary
meanness as we glance down police
court proceedings.
Those members of society who have
no children should also give heed, for
they may be called upon to give
evidence ae to where and bow they
were sandbagged by a defendant who
was once an innocent juvenile in a
community without a playground.
H. N. CotlBSIKB,
The Local lacrosse Tangle
Edilur M,ui_-Hekau>:
Sik,—In reply to an item appearing
in the Observer yesterday relative to
the dilliculty between the Labor Day
sports committee and ths local lacrosse
team we beg to Btate the Baid interview does not quite convey the entire
(act. The Sports Committee had entered ou their program a proposed
game ol lacrosse between tbe borne
team and auy other interior learn the
former might name with a view of
paying the expenses of transportation
of tbe visiting team out of Labor Day
funds. Oo interviewing the representatives of the local team however the
committee spokesman was informed
that the Revelstoke lacrosse men
would noi play unless medals were
presented, aud this stipulation wus
subsequently confirmed by other members of the team. This exaction together with transportation outlay
meant a total expense for lacrosse
alone of $175 to $200, these conditions
lendering a game impossible. Unfortunately, though individuals and
firniB have pn sundry occasions donated cups and trophies for other contests and though we all recognize the
superiority of uur Canadian national
game to any other game, no one has as
yet so so far as we know supplied a
cup for lacroBse. In view of these
brief but absolute facts we do not
think the local lacrosso men should
place the onus ol laxity in tbeir game
on the Labor Day spoils committee.
Let it however ulways be borne in
mind that the spirit ol Labor Day entertainment is primarily the promotion ol genuine sport (or sport's sake
alone and not lor the reward received
wbile at play.
Sl'OHTH COMMITTKK
RETAIL MERCHANTS' EXCURSION
The Day's Outing Much Enjoyed By the Party
On the 3,s, Revelstoke to St, Leon
About 140 people, men, women and
children, took in the retail merchants'
excursion on the s.s. Revelstoke to St.
Leon last Wednesday. A sobbing sky
and a chilly wind marred the pleasure
ol the occasion to a large extent. It
rained most of the way down aud back,
but in spite ol this, those who took
part managed to enjoy themselves
fairly well. Everyone was sociable
and a spirit of jollity prevailed among
the crowd, resulting from a feeling of
relaxation from the ordinary duties of
life. While at St. Leon tlie weather
cleared up a little, and some took boat
rides, while a number of lho mon
found enjoyment in a roughly improvised game ol cricket in [rout of the
hotel. The bat was a green club
chopped trom a tree and slickB served
as wickets, but this only helped to
give a primitive flavor to the fun.
Mine host, Mike Grady, of the St.
Leon hotel, served a splendid dinuer—
that is lor those who had time to eat
it. The last relay was disturbed by
the tooting of the steamer's signal for
relurn, and ihey had to rush off with
the meal half finished, aud with hanil-
fuls of oranges and hall masticated
pieces of pie.
Tlie return journey was enlivened
by singing and good natured badinage
in which George Hawker proved himself a jovial leader. He was rewarded
for his pains at the end of the journey
by being Beized upon by Boina of the
jouug fellows who carriod him bodily
around tho boat singing "For He'B a
Jolly Good Fellow."
The retail merchants had on the
whole good reason to feel satisfied witb
the excursion iu spite ol the weather,
and the hope wub expressed that it
would become an annual event, taking
ttie place of the civic holiday iu other
cities.
The boat left shortly after seven in
the morning anil returned at 7:110 in
tbe evening.
Chaiet Nearly Finished
The chalet is now about finished
and the Mountaineering Club will
next year be in a position, it is hoped
to accommodate visitors and members
They expect to have a certain number
of tents, dishes and bedding, which
can be rented lor a very small sum.
An attendant will probably be stationed their for the summer months,
who will have a stock ol provisions on
hand which can be purchased at cost;
thereby aaviog every person the trouble and expense ol getting their own
supplies trucked up.
This park will no doubt in future
he one ol the few places in the moun
tains where the visitor will get the
grandest scenery and healthiest outing
and the local community have an
excellent camping ground, cool and
refreshing iu the heat of summer.
Armours Locate Here
The Armour Picking Company are
about to establish a warehouse and
cold storage plant in this city, which
will liecoioe their distributing point
for the immense territory between
Sponcc's Bridge and Field on the main
line, inoluding the branch railway and
steamboat lines tributary thereto. S.
K Bradley, who will be manager, has
secured a house 011 Filth and will take
up bis residence in the oity. The
warehouse will be 11 great acquisition
to the commerce ol Kevelsloke, and is
another indication that it ie regarded
as a convenient commercial centro by
big houses.
Moving Picture Programme
A large audience enjoyod the excellent programme ol nml ion pictures ut
the Kdison Theatre lasl nigbt. To.-
nigbl lhe same programme will ho
repeated nl two performances. Tbo
comedies arc good and tho balance of
tbe programme first-class.
S. S. Convention and District Meeting
Rev. T. W. Hall returned from
Salmon Arm on Thursday's midnight
train, where he has been conducting a
very successful Sunday school convention on the 25th und u moet harmonious financial district meeting on the
26tb. Tbe attendance was good snd
every part of the program was well
carried out. Rev. O. M. Sanford, of
Kamloops, preached a very practical
sermon on Wednesday evening and
Rev. W. J. Sipprell delivered a very
able address on Thursday evening on
Christian education.
Labor Day Sports
The program Ior the Labor Day
Bports is now well under way and by
all appearances a grand day's entertainment will be the result.
The local athletes arc putting in
some consistent practise work and
when Labor Day arrives they will be
in shape to uphold the honors of the
city.
The tugol-war on Labor Day is to
be pulled on grass this year and teams
are invited to send in their entries as
soon as possible.
lun at the Fair
One ol the principal attractions ol
the coming Fall Fair will be tbo pro
limit mn by the Amaleur Dramatic
Club ol a three-act lurcical comrdy.
Tho piece is well named "Conlusion,"
abounding as it does in funny situations and goucral mix-ups, causing
much laughter und merriment. The
Revolstoke Dramatic Olub have been
too long belore the public to need any
endorsement, und patrons ol tbe opera
house can rest assured that in "Confusion' the local Thespians will be
seen lo advantage. Watch lor further
particulars ol this mirth-provoking

from every standpoint, perfectly satisfactory. The;r
excellent quality is conceded

Uon't leave it for someone else to
do the voting, but show your earnestness by turning out in a sense of
duty. The poll will be open at the
City Hull from 9 o'clock in the
morning till 7 in the evening so
that there should be ample time
for every citizen lo east a ballot. It
requires no great effort to murk a
cross on a piece of paper, and if
the ratepayers neglect to mark it or
mark it in the wrong place, it may
cost tbem dearly in future.

DOES ADVERTISING PAY?
This i| iisiiiiii i.s effectively an
sweretl by the Canadian Pacilic
Railway Company in its campaign
for advertising its lands in southern I'-. ('. in Ibe provincial news- j
piper.-. Tbis advertising Painpaign
wa.- commenced on July I.m, nml
since thai dale the company has
rece.vcil in lhe neighborhood of
5,000 inquiries relative to their!
holdings iu British Columbia. The
full results so far have not yet
come to hand, but before its finality
it is expected that il will in all
probability reach nearly 1 o,00()
inquiries.
That tliese inquiries must result
in many sales, and the effective
direction of much attention to the
province goes without saying. It
shows also lhat advertisements
well placed and continuously kept
up in newspapers are read. There
is a lesson in this. It is not the
ad of a single day that pays, but it
is the nolice kept before the public
week after week that draws. The
companies or the merchants that
advertise show themselves alive,
and tbo public appreciate the fact
and give their patronage accordingly.

To D. McNICOLL, Esq.,
Vii'i'-I.'ri'siili'itt.   Canadian    I'acilic
Railway Couipuny,
Dear Sir.
We, the representatives of the
Kevelstoke Board o£ I rmlo, desire
In avail ourselves of this opportunity of your visit to Uritish Columbia in teuder you a hearty welcome
on behalf of the residents of this
city, and to express our upprecia-
i inu of the great, work which the
Canadian I'acilic Company are
doing towards tho development of
this province and the Dominion of
Canada as a whole.
The establishment of your Industrial Department uuder Mr,
Peters, and the extensive publicity
system so successfully carried on
under the supervision of Mr, Robson, are doing much to make widely known the scenic attractions, as
well as the Mineral, Timber, Agricultural and other resources of this
great Province. The results thereby achieved have made the work
of the Canadian Pacilic Railway
Company a matter of great personal interest to us. The city of Kevelstoke is the largest and most important town ou the mam line of
the C. P. R. in Kritish Columbia,
and the progress and prosperity of
this city are intimately linked with
that of the Kailway Company
which you represent.
As the divisional and workshop
centre of the Mountain anil Shuswap Division of the Kailway, wj
recognize the interest to your Com-
puny of the development of this
city and district, and assure you
the citizens of Revelstoke wish to
extend to the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company wbicb you represent their hearty co-operation in
every way calculated to promote
their mutual advantage. You can
therefore depend ou receiving from
the citizens of this town all possible
support in your policy of progress
and development, as we recognize
that the extension and success of
the enterprises with which you are
associated means the growth and
prosperity of ihis city.
There is no Province in the Dominion more dependent on railways
for its development than liritish
Columbia, and we hope thai your
present visit tu tli is Province will
satisfy you as to the results that
are being derived from that policy.
Signed on behalf of the Board.
A. H.ALLEN,
Vice-President.
Mr. McNicoll thanked the Board

different departments, I Mails won'
of course   in   the    hands   of   Mr.
Whyte, who had full charge of the

The delegation said Mr. Whyte
was an ollieer of the Company who
was held in very high esteem in

n great factor in   ensuring the sue-
cess of thni Institution'

stoke V. M. ('. A. that the Company arc helping out. three oilier Y,
M- I'. A. Institutions in oilier parts

The delegation then brought lo

siblc for tliese brunches of the
service, and assured the delegation
thut, so far us conditions warranted,
these concessions wuuld be made.
Mr. McNicoll expressed his great
satisfaction at, the development of
British Columbia, and was particularly pleased with the progress
being made in the settlement of the
country round Arrow Lakes, lb-
would like to accept their invitation to a trip to the park on Mt.

The delegation were much pleased with the result of their interview with Mr, McNicoll, whom
they found thoroughly approachable and apparently anxious lo

be 132 years of age.
What is believed to be n recoid lor
longevity in British Columbia has
come to light 1111101 g the Indians of
New Wistminater. Down on the Indian reservation in the west end ol the
city 011 lhe banks ol the iNoilb Aim
ol the Fraaer waa au Indian woman
who has been living there for some
yeara. She died this afternoon about
one o'clock. She waa the head of the
Cbehalia Indina, mid once wns all
powe.rlull in that tribe now divided iuto small bands. Over a centure ago
she live in tlie country lying weat of
Harrison Luke with hundreds ol Btal-
wai't braves around ready to go on the
war path or on the hunt. Lately she
has heen living in a lowly but on the
hanks of the Fraser, apiechlees and
unable to raise a hand, waiting for the
last summons for the Happy Hunting
Ground.
Her niece, now 70 yeara of age Inr-
self, years ago married Wm. Vianen,
better known as Dutch Bill, the oldest
white fisherman on the Fraaer River.
Fifty years ago Dutch Bill, then in
tbe prime ol bis manhood used tu fish
on the Fraaer. His death occurred
about three yeara ago.
No other case of auy oue living at
audi an age ie known iu thia province
aa tbis Indian woman. It ia a tribute
to tlie beneficial elTecta of life in the
open air. The present race ol Indians
cannot oompare with the old atuck in
thia reaped.—Columbian,
Laurier Not Coming
The secretary of the Canadian Club
at Nelson baa received a wire from Sir
WilliiJ Laurier'a aecretary saying that
the Premier has definitely decided not
tn visit the West thia Fall. Tbis
announcement will be a disappointment to many people ol both parties,
since all were ready to do honor to the
Premier of tbe Dominion. Probably
Kdmonton will be tbe most diaap-
pointed place ol all, as it had been
Imped that Sir Wilfrid would be
preaent at the laying of the fottnda-
tiona Btone for the new Alberta parliament buildings.
