Creditable Production by Local
Yesterday was celebrated as the day
dedicated to St. Patrlok, patron saint
of Ireland, and judging by the number
of persons Haunting the "immortal
green," the genial saint has many
adhcrerB iu RevelBtoke. Service was
held in the Human Catholic Church
in tho 1110 ning, the day being a canonical festival. In the evening an
Irish drama was produced in the
opera house, under the auspices of the
Altar Society of the Roman Catholic
The house was well filled with a
patriotic audience. "Captain Jack"
was the drama on the boards, a tale of
the Irish rebellions against the English rule, the plot centreing round
Captain Jack, an outlaw, who falls in
love with the daughter of a country
squire, an ardent loyalist. The squire's
daughter helps the rebel to escape
twice and aided by Harney Donovan, a
sprig ol the old sod, succeeds in ok.
taining a pinion, through tbe assistance of Capt. Gordon, an English
army officer who has retired from the
service, weary of hunting bis fellow-
men. Tbe piece wns well staged and
brightly carried out, the element of
tragedy being lightened by romance
and real Irish wit, The actors worked
without any hesitation or hitch. VV.
A. Chambers, as Squire Shannon,
played his part ol the thwarted villain
well, as did R O. Patterson (Captain
Jack). Mrs. Chambers, as Aline Dris-
coll, the heroine, carried out a difficult
role with charming naivete. Miss
Cameron, as Kate Kelley, made a
bright little colleen, the love making
with Barney Donovan (R. H. Sawyer)
causing much mirth. Mrs. R. O. Patterson ss the squire's daughter, showed the Irish spirit in her loyalty to tbe
rebel who had saved her life. N.
Moore as Capt. Gordon, D. E. Jackson
as Teddy Burke, M. Stortz as Tim
Burns J. Ringer as Lieut. Rogers,
and Miss McAllister as Mary, each
carried out their part in a creditable
manner. Messrs W. Buck, D. Smythe,
A. Hillier and J. Armstrong made
smart and efficient soldiers.
Much credit is due tbe company for
their work .nd the audience appreciated their efforts. Mrs. Chambers
deserves praise for her untiring labors
in producing the play. R. H, Sawyer,
as Barney Donovan, was the favorite
among the audience, bis role being
admirably carried out, "Ireland" being
stamped all over him.
Mr. Douglas n humorous Irish song
and recitation created loud applause,
while Mies Clara FraBer and Mii9ter
Fred Fraser received due appreciation
for their recitations. Mr. Cranum
recited several impresBive pieces in a
masterly manner. A feature of tin-
evening was the excellent music provided by Miss V. McKinney on the
piano. Miss McKinney played untir
ingly during the long 'tween act
pauses and delighted her audience.
Politics in Kootenay.
A despatch Irom Nelson says:
There seems to be no lack of timber lor tbe shaping of a Conserva'ive
candidate for the Dominion elections.
In this regard sre mentioned W. A.
Mscdonald, K.C., snd H. S. Lennie, ol
Nelson, .Iiunes Schofield, of Trail,
present sitting member lor the constituency of Ymir in the provincial
legislature, and F. A. Starkey, vice-
president of the Associated Hoards of
Trade of British Columbia.
On tbe Liberal side the choice is
more limited. The sitting memlier is
\V. A. Gsllihcr, and if he cares to run
again would make a formidable candidate even in a constituency like this,
which as the sitting members in the
provincial house show, is largely Conservative. But it is rumored that Mr.
Galliher is not likely to run again.
In his absence tlie logical candidate is
F. J. Deane of Nelson', formerly provincial member lor Kamloops.

Wheat Production Possibilities
Ottawa, March 17.—Before the
agricultural committee of the commons tod*y, R. E. Young, superintendent of the railway aud ,jiwamp
land branch, department of interior,
said if the wheat crop of the Canadian
weat in 1906 totalled 100,000,000 bushels on a settled area of 8,400,000 acreB,
it was no str. tch of imagination to
look into the future for a wheat production of 1,300,000'000 bushels, prac-
tica Ily three times the total foreign
trade of Canada at the present time.
Cattle Stealers Arrested

Gardner, rancher, living in Chin
Coulee, 00 miles east of Lethbridge,
and u man named H.dines are in the

to stand trial on the charge of cattle
stealing. For some time cattlemen
around Lethbridge have suspected
Gardner and Holmes of killing beef
that did not belong to them, and
selling the meat in Taber, W. S. Hill
having lost several head of cattle
ranging south of tho river.
Vancouver  Alderman's Up-to-
date Suggestion.
VANOOUVER, March 17.—' A tire escape that I hnve not seen in Vancouver, but which has been used success
fully In various other Canadian cities,
and which bus f ir year, been in existence in London, England, bus so far
escnped   inon lion by   any of the local
illltllorilies," Siliil   All!    1'l'i'Hi'oll.
"This lire escape," he continuod, "ie
in the furin of a canvas chute and resembles u long bag. At, the top is tt
rail that is easily fitted to any window.
Tbe chate is thrown out and into the
mouth of tho canvas "bag" the people
jump feet lirst, one at a time.
"In the bag is u rope running the
entire length, and this can lie grasped
so as to ch.ick the speed. Tbe one
first descending, or any one in the
street, can seize the bottom of the
chute and lift it so as to form a sort
of bed in case any excited persons
should come down too last, tbis action
preventing those descending from
striking the ground too hard. It is
the quickest and safest method of escape I have ever seen. It would be a
wise policy to compel such escapes to
be provided in all tall buildings."

Fort  William Home Scene of
Terrible Crime.
Fort WILLIAM, March 17.—Lying
across the body of his wife, whom he
attempted to murder, with blood issuing from his mouth and side, the
body of James Garton was discovered
at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon at
their home on Finlayson street. It was
found that Mrs. Garton was not dead,
and unless complications set in there
is a likelihood of her recovery.
Tlie immediate cause of the attempted murder and suicide may
never be known, but there is little
doubt tout Garton was insane. That
tbe deed was premeditated is also
clear from the fact thut in one pocket
was found a letter with . instructions
that it be opened in the presence of a
crown attorney, aud the contents of
which show evidence of a disordered
mind. A crown attorney ana tbe'
coroner have decided that an inquest
is unnecessary.

he went, for the Bplendid wuy in
which Canada had weathered the n-
cent financial storm which so seriously affected tbe rest of the world. He
says Canadian investments were ncvir
so highly regarded abroad as now,
which will mean much for Canada in
Inline, if we do nothing to shake this
new born confidence
Divorce is Made Easier
Paris, March 17.—The Divorce
Court has laid down the principle
that a divorce in the case ol foreigners domiciled in Franoe may lie

legal for divorce in France, even when
such grounds are not recognised by
the statutes of their own country
provided the home countries recognize the application of the divorce
laws of tbe foreign countries where
the subjects are domiciled.]

born of the same mother in the same
year, appeared before the ustmisflied
military authorities here yesterday to
participate in the drawing of lots for

The case, which is probably the
most remarkable on record, is explained by the fact that the mother
gave birth to two sets,oue being born in
January and the second during the
following December,

Apropos oi the manner in which
the pleasure-going public of Kevelstoke and other cities in the west
have frequently been imposed upon
by those of the barnstormer fraternity and especially by articles
and reading matter supplied by
advance agents and sworn to as
being bona ride descriptions of the
particular show which that agent
is working for and the manner in
which the good money of the people is taken, the Phoenix Pioneer
says l
Simply because a town happens
to be located in the mountains of
the west, -ome persons have au
idea that those jscople ilu not have
people of taste and education as
residents. Consequently, efforts
are made to run in many a show
at high prices that would hardly
get into a ten cent theatre in the
larger cities. The promoters forget that most people in the west
once resided in the cent belt of the
east, that the country has hundreds
of college graduates and men and
women of refinement, as well as
others; anil that they are discriminating in their tastes as residents
of any place east of the Rockv
mountains. One booking firm has
learned this lesson, at any rate, it
is pleasant to note.
Revelstoke has been only too
frequently inflicted with travelling
trash of this sort and it is about
time to put a stop to indiscriminate
boosting ol such shows by press
notices, the authenticity of which
the newspaper which print them.all
in good faith, have no means of
showing. |
The Rovelstoke Agricultural
Society, which has been evolved
from the Turf Association, is a
movement that comes particularly
to the fore iust now, when the
matter of fruit growing and agriculture have been such live questions, owing to the decision ol the
Board of Trade to have Revelstoke
represented at the Dominion Fair
at Calgary. We feel that should
this exhibit be a success, Kevelstoke
will have had the publicity and
advertising that she has never had
before, and now that we begin to
realize that this district is capable
of producing fine fruit and other
produce, the impetus thiiB given
should lead to big results. The
Agricultural Association will he
instrumental in encouraging those
in this district to expand the industries of fruit and produce which
can only be attained by the clearing of wild lands.
This question of  holding a   fall
fair   this   year   has   not yet been
definitely   decided,   although   the
project may be classed  among the
probabilities, though no announcement has yet been made.     Should
the enterprise he procoeded with, it
is of the  utmost  desirability  that
some definite action be taken at as
early a date   as   possible.      A fall
fair must bear exhibition  of  agricultural   products   and  worthy of
our country, although   the   initial
show cannot he expected to assume
large proportions.     The best  thut
the   district   can  produce alone is
good enough,   because   what is exhibited will be taken   as   the  best
that can be produced.     We   must
show everything   that can he profitably grown from our soil.   That
we can produce the standard varieties   of   fruit   aud   vegetables   in
abundance and of excellent quality
is established.      Besides   products
of the soil, the mineral and  timber
resources must he taken  into  consideration. Live stock breeding can
be encouraged and a very valuable
asset established.     A display cannot be secured in Kevelstoke  without some forethought and preparation.      Varied as our products are
they are not   so   varied   as   they
might be, and good as the samples
commonly   available,   better   and
more in quantity could be secured
by  special  attention to the soil in
spring and to   the   growing   crops
during   the   summer.       Practical
loyalty runs strong in   the   Revelstoke people and if they are assured
of an  opportunity  to  Bhow   what
their Boil can   produce   they   may
be relied upon   to   do   their   part.
Every citizen with land and  every
land owner in the Revelstoke   district and riding, impelled  by  public spirit to excel  would   willingly
go to considerable  trouble to  produce  creditable   exhibits   if   they
were certain of an  opportunity   to
display these   where   they   would
result in credit to the producer and
in benefit  to   the   country.     The
time to get busy with a fall fair  is
now! while the season's  operation?
are being planned.      Let  those in
charge of the   Kevelstoke   Agricultural Association, get together and
discuss the matter.      This step we
are taking is one of the most   important   and   progressive   in    the
history of our city.    Let those who
feel   the   keenest   interest   in this
movement take the matter in hand
at once.
Of World Wide Interest-Important Discussions.
The subjects which have been listed
for discussion at the Pan-Anglican
congress, which will be held in London, England, June 15-24, are not
only extremely varied, but also extremely imp irliint. They includ
the marriage laws, the question of
divorce, socialism, the relations of
capital aud labor, the sweating ol labor,
strikes, etc., in fact all the lending
questions and problems which agitate
inoderd society aud modern industrial
The writers and the speakers on all
the topios in question will be leading
men, and in order that the program
may be fulfilled, sessions will be held
daily iu the Albert hall as well as in
six or seven of the other large hall, iu
the metropolis.
As the Albert ball ia capable of
accommoduii g l.'i.tHK) people, it is
announced that tbe speakers in this
place will be selected Irom among
those whose voices will be sufficiently
powerful to reach to all parts of the
great auditorium.
Important Changes in Size of
the Various Claims.
In the "Placer Mining Act Amending Act, 1908," important changes
have been made in the size ot the
various claims that may be Incited
under tbe provisions made lor this
class of mining. A "creek diggings"
claim will in the future be 25U leet
long in the direction of the general
course of the stream. In the nutter
of "bar diggings" a piece of ground
will be allowed, on any bar that ie
coven d by hi^h water, to measure 250
fiiet square, or a strip of land 250 feet
long, snd extending from high water
mark to extreme low water mark.
Tbe "dry diggings" claim will be 250
feet square, taken in any manner tbat
suits the idea of the locator. The
whole idea appears to be to give the
finder of this class ol mining ground a
somewhat better chance to secure
enough ground to pay  for hia trouble.

Thos. Taylor, M.P.P., States the
Government's Intention
The representative of the Mail-
Herald called at the residence of T.
Taylor, M.P.P., on Monday evening
for the purpose of obtaining some information regarding the oonstruotion
of a trull.o bridge aoross the Columbia
at this point by the Government. Mr.
ing returns show contraction in loans l Taylor stated that the matter was a
and discounts to an extent which
brings them down to the level of a
year ago.
The Bank of England rate has been
reduced to 3} per cent; there is considerable improvement in the "tuck
markets of Wall street and Montreal;
eastern brokers report money easier; a
visitor just returned from New York
states financial matters there are
assuming normal conditions again.
Mr. Balfour, general manager of the
Union Bank, who is on a tour of the
west, states that throughout all eastern Canada there is a better feeling in
financial circlet and a gradual improvement is apparent. There is jubilation in New York over the fact that
the Knickerbocker Trust Company is
rehabilitated and will reopen its doors
on March 26th, thus releasing assets
to the value of over $46,000,000.
Financial stringency should not live
long in Canada, where expenditures of
$600,000,000 are projected within the
next six years.
Increased interest continues to be
shown in mining, though an unfavorable feature was the passing of tbe
Granby dividend, after paying at the
rate of twelve per cent. The manner
iu which mining stocks have suffered
in the financial storm is perhaps more
evident in the oaee ol Consolidated
Smelters than in any other stock.
This stock, which Bold up to 145 a
little over a year ago, hat tumbled to
65, though it it felt thit is only a
temporary condition. A writer on
copper says:
"At the average price oi 13 32 cents
per pound, copper has made as many
millionaires as steel. Copper has been
knocked down, purposely—the millionaires are getting tbe copper
stocks—the public is getting—experience. Tbe coming upward swing, in
spectacular fortune making in the
red metal will surpass anything tbat
has gone before."
While B. 0. copper stocks are still
telling down, Snowstorm hat advanced
to $180 and Charles Dickens to 21c.
Among the coal stocks Diamond
Vale it showing most activity. The
mine it now shipping steadily a tu.
perior grade of coal, hat proved up
three good teams on itt property of
10,000 aoret, and hat disappointed the
croakert who peredicted trouble with
water. Thit stock it one of the best
coal buys and it ture to advance.

which had backed into a tiding at

Fortunately the patteuger train wat
not going fast at the time. The engine kept tbe line bat three column'
can wet* precipitated down a 20-foot
embankment, toppling over on each
other. The line wat blocked eight
hourt. A wrecking crew left Kenor.
within 15 mmutee after receiving
live question both with the Premier
and also with the minister ol public
works, and although there was so lur
no appropriation in the estimates for
thit bridge, there was every possibility
of one at some future date. Have the
government really considered the matter with any definite view ol putting
in the bridge ? "Yet, I understand
that the commissioner of lands and
works ia coming up to Revelitoke this
season and will thoroughly investigate
the question of thejeonstruction of the
h idge, as to whether the expense will
be warranted and if the demands for
it can be substantiated from a commercial point of view. I think that if
the commissioner is satisfied that
there will be enough to warrant the
bridge being built that appropriation
will be made at once bo that the piers
can be commenced this fall."
Is there any truth in the report that
a sum of $10,000 will toon lie available
for that purpose ? "No! no ettimate
has been made of such a sum, but I
asked Mr. Fulton if he would give me
a letter stating that $10,000 would be
available for the construct im of the
bridge piers this fall, He refused on
the grounds that the matter would be
looked into in the summer and that if
the bridge went in it would require
more than $10,000 for the piers, so
tbat a letter would be of no use."
Where would the bridge he built?
"Well, Mr. Gamble has plans and
soundings at a point opposite Allans-
old brewery.'
Was the plan sent down by Mr.
Foote to the government to be used as
a guide? "Only in as much as that
the Premier had asked Mr. Finite to
give him some idea of what was
wanted "
If a bridge is put in will tbe structure be of wood or steel? "The government find now that the best policy
is to erect their bridges of steel with
stone or concrete piers, and the Columbia bridge would, in all probability be
of such construction "
Can you give any definite statement
at to whether the bridge will be commenced this tall? "No, no further
than to say tbat I think the chances
are very promising, but, as I said before, we will have to prove coi elusive-
ly that the expense will be warranted
and that tbe development of lands
will thereby be increased beneficially
to the riding."
On being questioned as to tbe mattress on the rivet bank, Mr. Taylor
stated tbat tbe government did not
intend to put any more money onto it,
tince it was sale enough and would
hold, especially at the work accomplished by the Dominion government
dam, bad tbown tuoh good results.

taken up in discussing local current
Interesting Report by Supt. H.
We are in receipt of  a copy of  the
report of Supt. Douglas of the Rocky
Mountain Park of Canada lor the fit
cal year ending March 31,1907.    The
report it one of the mott valuable and
interesting of the publications issued
by tbe Department of the Interior at
Ottawa and  reflects the highest credit
on Mr. Douglas, who hat for to many
yeart   most   ably    administered   the
affairs of the National Park.   The report deals witb improvements tucb at
bridgee, roadt  and   trailt, at  well at
interesting detailt on tbe progress ol
the park's natural wondert, including
flora and fauna.   Tbe sulphur tpringt
and   baths   have   been  vieited by increasing   numbers   of    Mr.
Douglas   recommends   the   establishment   of  a fish hatchery and stricter
fishing   regulations.     Pretervation of
game   it  specially   dealt   with,  and
greater precautions are to be taken to
prevent wanton destruction.   ' The re
port ou tbe Bankhead mines shows a
profitable year.    The Alpine Club of
Canada is described and the interest
taken in it.     Tho  question ol  hotel
accommodation it a serious one, many
vititort having to be turned away latt
year,  although   extensive    additions
bad been   made   to all the mountain
hotels.     The  revenue  of   tbe   park
thowt an increate of 25 per cent over
the previous year.     Mr. Douglas lays
tbat   he   feelt  confident, from interviews with prominent numbers of the
government and with leading private
citiient that   neither the government
or the people ol Canada would object
to a considerably  incre.ted expenditure in connection with tbe development  and   maintenance of the park

railroads used, in 1006, over U>0,0ll0.
000 cross lies. The average price paid
wns forty-eight cents per tie. Appmx
imately three fuurl lis of the ties were
hewed and one-fourth sawed.
Ouk, the chief wood iiBed for ties,
furnishes more than furty-four pi r
Cent., nearly one-halt of the who e
number, while the Southern pine-,
which rank second, contribute aliout
on-esixth. Douglas fir and cedar, tho
the next two, with approxinintely
equal quantities, supply less than ono-
fifteenth apiece. Chestnut, cypress,
western pine, tamarack, hemlock aud
redwood are nil of importance, but no
one of them furnishes more than a
Hiilall proportion.
link and Southern pine stand highest in both total and average value;
the average value of each ia fifty sine
cents. Chestnut ranks next, followed
hy cedar. Hemlock, at twenty-eight
cents, is the cheapest tie reported.
More I linn three fourths of all ties
arc hewed; and witli every wood from
which ties nre made, i vcept Douglas
fir and Western pine, lhe number ot
hewed lies ia greater than tho number
sawed. About ten times as many
Douglas lirties arc flaw J is arc hewed.
Of the oak ties a little over one-Bixih
and ot the Soul hern pino ties less than
one-third are sawed. In contrast to
the Southern pines iB tbe Western
pine, ot which more than one-half the
ties are sawed. Iu general, when lumber bus a relative low value the proportion ot sawed ties increases, because
the market tor ties is always active,
while that tor lumber is frequently
sluggish. All Western species are
affected hy this condition, lor stump-
age is abundant and its value relatively low
