RIVER BRIDGE
Chief Commissioner Makes an
Inspection of the Settlement
Across the Columbia—No
Definite Statement.    •
No more vital ami important question in connection with the progreaa
and development of the oity has ever
exerclned the minds of the whole of
Revelstoke than that of the trallic.
bridgo ncross the Columbia. So valid
are the rcaaons in the hearts ol the
citizens for ils construction and so
unanimous in their wishes regarding
t'ne work and its ultimate benefit, to
the city and indirectly to the prnvinsv
that no stone has been left unturned
to secure their ends. And it was to
sliow their feeling und sentiments in
this mutter that they persuaded the
Hon. F. J. Fulton, Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works who was
in the city a few davs ago with Pre
mier McBride und his colleagues, to
return to Ihe city and go over the
ground lor the purpose of seeing for
himself that the wish of the people of
Revelstoke tor a bridge was no idle
one, but the outcome ol the keen and
just realization that lhe development
of Revelstoke wns being hindered and
curtailed in that secthm hy lhe fuct of
their Icing no communication across
the river Mr. Fulton kept his promise und accompunied by a number of
prominent citizens made a tour of the
cross river sections. No point was left
untouched and Mr. Fulton was shown
the value of the soil and the large
acreage waiting development. The
chief conuni-aioncr took apparent
interest in nil he paw. and although
making but few remarks, wsb evidently sizing up the situation. Many
of the cross river lands are in an advanced state of cultivation, that of W,
Armstrong in particular, which ia a
fine property and very promising. On
returning to the Big Eddy mill, C. F.
Lindmark arranged a meeting in tbe
boarding house, closing down tbe mill
so as to allow the bands tn meet the
Chief Commissioner and Mr. Taylor.
On being called upon to address the
meeting Mr. Fulton said be was
pleased to meet the settlers of thnt
section and realized thut tbeir desire
for a bridge was a true one. He bad
given the matter fullest consideration
and would on his return to Victorfa
consult witb bis colleagues and h t the
people of Revelstoke have an answer
in ten days as to their decision. He
was pleased to read the peliti.in presented to him signed by all the settlers
in their request for communication
with the city but reminded them that
there were many calls on the government treasury besides Bevelstoke. He
hoped that he would he able to give
tbem the answer they desired.—
(Cheers).
place showed that Mr Calder had not
been idle and that while considerable
clearing lind been effected, besides
other improvements, there waa yet a
large area of rich laud untouched.
Tne launch trip back to the city
proved enjoyable and Mr. Fulton took
No. 97 for the couBt after expressing
pleasure at his visit.
VERDICT RETURNED
Error in Train Order  Caused
C. P. R. Wreck.
MEDICINE Hat, .Inly 17.—Tlie adjourned inquest into the death of
John Nicholson, one of the seven
men killed in the C.P.R. wreck on
July 9th, waa concluded yesterday.
Alter being out three quarters of an
hour tbe jury returned a verdict saying
the cause of the collision was the
failure of Operator Ritchie to note in
his clearance paper to engine No. 702
that train 17 bad not arrived and also
that Engineer Nicholson failed to
check the train register and ascertain
lor himself whether the clearance was
correct.
"We lind also," said the foreman,
"thut Operator Kilchie. had been working four hours overtime each day during four days previous to tlie accident
and tbat he had been on duty for
twelve hours previous to issuing the
said clearance."
Ritchie, wbo skipped across the
boundary, has not been luurd of since.

About one-half tbe tunneling work
on the C.P.R. line between Field apd
Hector, which ia to cut the lauii.ua
Big Hill grade in half, has already
been performed, nnd the contractors,
Messrs. Macdoncli .v. Uzuwski of Vancouver, are now doubling tbeir equipment so that it may be finished by the

botli bores. Work bus beeu proceeding at four faces ol the tunnels since
a start wus made.      These tunnels be-
in their appeal for a bridge. He felt
that there was great material for
development, but regretted that more
had not been done; be knew that all
were in union over the question and
affirmed that communication was
necessary. In conclusion, lie suit!
tbat it was very probable that a
bridge would be built and Sial lhe
citizens could be sure ol Mr. Fulton
doing all he could to that end
Hev. W. C. Calder on being called
upon to speak, gave a brief history of
tbe reasons why he had settled ncross
the river und now that he hud come
lie would heuble to help in Ibe development ol the district. There was
room lor many more families, and the
future of the land was assured All
should work and work iu union lo
lhat end. A bridge would add lo tbe
prosperity of that section by leaps anil
bounds and he hoped that the good
uews would soon he Hushed across the
wire.
Mr. Haggen, as vice-president of tlie
Board of Trade, until that on behalf ol
the Hoard he thanked Mr, Fulton and
askul that the bridge he put in on ils
merits, The land fully justified the
work and it wus Ihe duty ut tic gov-
eminent to meet the people's wishes
Mr. Lindmark then pointed mil
that ull his mill men were bonn fide
settlers und would make their homes
there.
At the close ol the meeting, which
was the lint of its kind on that side ol
river, Mr. Calder invited the party to
visit his hind- down the river, placing
bis launch "Tonka" at their disposal.
After a pleasant trip down tlio rivn
landing was made at the embryo furtn

REVELSTOKE FALL FAIR
The Bret public movement in
connection with un annual Fall
Fair in tin* city was hel6 on
Thursday night. What ihe meeting lacked in quantity wtiss made
up in quality and considerable
interest waa aruu.-ed. There cannot be the lea.-t doubt in the mind
of anyone in the community a.- to
the results of the undertaking in
benefits- t" th<- city not only in the
magnificent advertisement it would
be, but also, and mure valuable
still, in the stimulating effect it
would have on the fruit grower,
■Hock raiser, and other industries.
The richness of Hevelstoke soil has
been demonstrated already and
with the encouragement such as a
fair would give tn all branches 'ii
this district, the district must «>f
necessity .till further advance and
develop. The city owns tbe valuable tract of land which the Turf
Association that was, and the Agricultural Association that is to in-,
have leased and improved, and
with the suitable buildings erected
no more ideal spot in the province
can be found for such an event.
A large number of stockholders in
the Turf Club have lieen hiding
tlieir identity practically since its
inauguration, for a purpose best
known to themselves, and since
they are members, inwardly, and
others who are members outwardly
the former disclaiming all knowledge of it, the latter digging down
in their own pockets to help things
along, and in spite of the irrelvant
and spiteful remarks of tlie people,
have done ail they could to uphold the club and insure a clean
and successful meeting year by
year. We question which is worse
to be an inward  or outward mem-

ber! There are many in this city
today, who, if they had the excuse
of an exhibit of fruit, etc., on
grounds where there was a horse
race track, would visit those
grounds and take a keen interest in
all they saw — the fruit being
by no manner of means the chief
attraction. It seems that because
a few citizens have taken an interest in the Turf Club and helped it
along, they have been tabooed by
tlie community. This is not just.
Tho Agricultural Association will,
we hope, change all this; horse
racing there will he, and other attractions, but besides this tbere will
be a chance for every individual in
the district to do something, and
by his aid, boost the Fair along.
Revelstoke must not get behind the
times. We claim agricultural
lands, then let us advertise them.
By a hundred and one exhibits of
various things interest and competition will be aroused and RevelBtoke can celebrate lhat week tn
great advantage. The movement
is a valuable one based on solid
principles and intentions. Let the
people co-operate, the merchant
and the farmer, the real estate man
and the lumberman, for all will
receive benefit. Revelstoke, il she
lias any go iu her, will not let this
opportunity go hy.
one answer which will satisfy the
people, and only one which wiil
ensure tlie further smooth running
of tbe alliairs of tbe riding. Revelstoke is getting out of her groove,
and it is about time our people are
awake to tlieir just needs and rewards. Friends and foes of the
government are unanimous in this
respect and when the development
of their city is at stake, they will
take long chances.

uninitiated in land value-, and
agricultural areas and their returns, must aduiii that the ctobp
nver country has a greal (uture
ami that until communication is
established development cannol
on, yet it is  hard   lo  believe thai
the government, who claim t	
the interests ol the province at
heart and who derive such a large
Income from our riding, and who
admit that the present richness of
the treasury is allowing them to
carry out public works io a greater
extent than in previous year1-, can
quietly and coldly turn down our
rei|iiest. The government are fully
cognizant of the facts uf the case
and our earnestness in our claims.
It stands to reason that, development cannot take place until means
of access to the City is obtained,
and Mr. Fulton cannot, but admit
that many valuable acres are now
lying idle, consequently, which
should he revenue producer-, Revelstoke has had to he content with
promises, so far, all of which h 1VB
been accepted in good faith hitherto, hnt we want something more
tangible now, and the public sentiment strongly echos this. Revelstoke has supported the present
government and added largely to
the provincial treasury and we
want something in return. Mr.
Fulton haH promised his bust consideration, and will return answer

FALL FAIR
Preliminaries Arranged—Popular Movement Among the
Citizens—Committee Named
to Formulate Plans.
A public meeting of citizens whb
held 011 Thursday evening for the purpose of discussing the preliminary
arrangements for the holding of an
annual fair in Reveletoke in the Fall.
Mayor Lindmark was voted to the
chair and culled on A. McBae to explain the situation.
Mr. McRse Btated that everything
had heen done to change the nnme of
the Turf Association into that of tbe
Agiii-ulttit'-il Association, in a legal
manner, and the same stockholders
were willing to retain their stock, He
Baid that C.P.R. rates had already
been arranged and tbat dates had been
fixed. It was the general wish of the
citizens! thnt tlie Agricultural Association should be lornicd and everything
was in a position to go ahead and
arrange tin exhibition. He explained
the terms whereby the city had leased
the track to lhe Turf Club and how
extensive improvements had been
made. A fair could easily be arranged
which would iu itself be a magnificent
advertisement.
The mayor said that the city council wire arranging to put through a
Park Bylaw, to include both city properties, and the money ttitu raised
would be spent on improving the
grounds and erecting ugticultural
buildings.
F. B. Lewis asked what the prospects
ola fair would be.
A. McRae said that they were very
good snd t'.iat every citizen would
co-operate aud make it a success. He
promised to look after tbe horse racing
and see that that part of it was carried out. A fair would boom the district.
The mayor said that even if it was
late in tbe season, a small lair could
be held which would be a start and
pay for itself.
H. F. Hay Baid that a fair would
act aa a good advertisement as well as
a stimulator to the ranchers in the
district. He felt sure they would all
work to insure the success of the exhibition. RevelBtoke fruit had made
its mark and would continue to do so
if the growers had such encouragement.
Some diversion was caused at this
point by li Tapping taking vehement
exception to what the Mayor said in
referring to the indifference shown by
the fruit growers, as a whole, of the
Calgary fair. Ml, Tupping was called
to order several times and subsided.
A resolution was passed that Revelstoke deems it desirable that a Fall
fair shall be held along the lines of an
agricultural association and that the
meeting guarantee active support.
A. Johnson said that Culgary had
arranged to hold a lair every year and
confine itself childly tu the west and
its attractions, and it was very possible
that, the Dominion Fair might be
held in Revelstoke in the  near future.
It. Tapping suggested that the provincial government be asked for a
donation.
A resolution was then passed appointing ollicers pro tern until such
time as the Turf Club could meet and
receive their report and elect permanent ulficers, (the Agricultural As-o-
ci.itiun taking tlie place of tbe Turf
Club).
Messrs. 0. F. Lindmark, A. John-
Bon and II. Cunningham Morris were
appointed as a temporary committee
to report on plane and schetres outlining the Fair as well aB genernl pre
liminaries       The   meeting   then  nil
journed.
GREAT COPPER CAMP
Rich Find on Moresby Island
Revelstoke Men Interested
Tasoo Harbor, on the southwest
coast of Moresby Island, in bhe ljueen
Charlottes, promises to become a
famous mining centre, in view of the
magnitude of the copper ore bodies
recently discovered there. It is pro
bably, judging from locations being
made inland that the mineral belt
extends across the island, a distance of
fourteen miles. Hundreds of prospectors have reached the scene and Tasoo
Harbor is dotted with every variety of
sailing craft.
The camp promises to be a high-
grade one, the assay returns in every
instance exceeding ten per cent copper, while the average iB much higher
comprising high values in gold as
well The ore is a typical chalcnpy-
rite. It also possesses the ideal pro
portions of lime and iron in its con-
stittients aa lo render it self fluxing
This is an advantage that reduce-
smelting costs to a minimum
The pioneer locations, twenty in all
were made by Mr. Arthur Oowing of
Trout luki, near Reveletoke, B. C, 11
veteran   Kootenay   prospector, whose
experiences in the Sluean, Trail Creel;,
ami Boundary districts dates hack to
18il_. Mr. (lowing left the tipper
country lur the Q ieeu Charlottes less
timn three months ago. At Bkidigate
he was interested us soon ns he caught
sight ol some "Uoat." in the possession
of Chief Henry Moody, wh > kindly
consented to conduct him to the place
white it Imd been picked up. Mr.
Cowing did the test. In a few hours
after reaching Tasoo Harbor he located the ledge. The Chief was awarded
by a substantial interest in the vuriouB
claims, now controlled by a syndicate,
comprising MeiBrs. J, E. Corlett, Chicago; ThoB. Taylor and F. C. Elliott,

of development will be undertaken aa

view with his partners.
The ore body runs northeast by
southwest with a dip of 45 degrees to
the north. The fast wall iB of lime
and the hanging wall of diorite. This
is an ideal formation. The ore is intersected by ledgei of arsenical it on
Tanning from the north alongside trap
rocks. These iron ledges vary from 50
to 100 feet in width. But the surprising'feature of all is that this
arsenical iron runs from $4.00 to $6.00
in gold per ton.
The cepper ore body can bo tractd
on the surface for miles. Its average
width is about seventy feet, a phenomenal size considering the high grade
character of the metallic currents. In
places the vein attains a width of 100
feet, and again it narrows down to 17
feet. A series of assays of the crop-
pings, or surface ore, gave a return of
17J per ceut. copper, a little silver und
$8 gold per ton. A few shots disclosed
the high grade chalcopyrite  beneath
A number ol experts, including
Capt. Davis, a former Kootenay mining man and Mr. Bellamy, of Seattle,
