First   Street Opposite   Windsor   Hotel
Local Company Resumes Operations in Brick Manufacture
Finest Clay Discoverable
Will be Used.
Among Hie arrivals in the city on
Monday night wns Mr. E. A. Kitson
a master brickiuuker who bus been
employed by C. B, Hume A Co. to
take charge of the operations ot the
brick making plant ol that company
on the Tuo) water river adjacent to the
city. Tbe demand for bricks as building material bas so increased in the
Interior that the company which
desisted bum brickinaking a few years
ago bas determined to resume business
and it has consequently obtained the
services of one of the best men that
could be secured to direct ils work.
Mr. Kitson is a brickmaker from
"way-back" and takes a pride in the
fact that he has been in thai
business for many years. Most recently be is from Calgary and Okotoks
and at tbe latter place had charge ol
a manufactory wbicb turned out material creditable to both the company
aud the manager concerned.
In Kevelstoke Mr. Kitson's held ot
operation will have a couple of distinct
advantages-, The II.st of tliese will be
the quality tif clay which be will bave
to handle in the manufacture of the
article which he will place upon the
market. This quality, according to
the testimouy of experts and those
qualiiied to give conclusive evidence
upon 6uch a technical question, is of
the best. An assay of the clay from
the claim of the company recently
reported to be made by the Dominion
geological stall' appraises the clay as
being superior to that of nny that can
be found in the Dominion ul Canada.
Its qtialilication for incorporation into
brick substances is of the lirst order
and the company intends to make the
best chance of its find.
Work ou the new industry will be
commenced at once aod from lifteen
to twenty men will be employed. The
capacity of the mill is at present
12,000 daily but this will be increased
with the prospective immediate demand for a futuie output. The addition of the industry to the immediate
vicinity of Bevelstoke is one of the
many indications of the building
prosperity of the city.
City Council Will Ask for Nine

plow, $40; estimate lor hauling rock,
1 wages, etc., $2,860, a total of $9,000.
It is understood that the margin in
the case of each estimate in the above
schedule is sullicient for a line of
safety, actual figures in some of the
instances being impossible to obtain.
These will be obtained belore the
by-Isw b submitted and the fullest
information given tut be public.
The Best Yet.
The luu loving people ol Kevelstoke
will be more than delighted with the
"oniedy to be presented by the local
amateur dramatic club on the evening
ol Victoria Day, May 21th, at the
opera house. "All the Comforts of
Home," is a cleverly written comedy
uf quick action and dialogue, abounding in funny situations, and is one
continual laugh from start to finish.
The cast is a strong one and more
than ordinary attention has been
given to tbe rehearsin 1 and staging ol
this production. After the performance a social dance will be held, forming a fitting wind-up to the holiday.
Tbe entertainment being in aid of the
hospital should guarantee a bumper
house, and will doubtless prove one of
the most successful ever given in the

any race under a mile. However this
morning's mail brought an entry from
Mr. Haycock, of Malakwa, who will
make Charlie go all the way. Haycock is a young runner who is improving in every race and this contest
should be a good oue. A lull entry

Millions for British Columbia
London, May 111.—As a result of the
proposed increased income tax in the
Budget submitted by Mr.Lloyd-George
the Duke of Bedford, an extensive land
holder and scientific farmer, is to
invest $2,500,000 ou the Pacific C ast,
acoording to a report current here
today. The immense Thorney estates
in Cambridgeshire were recently sold
to the Government by the duke for a
sum in excess of £650,090. The proceeds of this Bale, it is said, will be
invested in farming lands. The
Thorney estate was traiiaforined by
the duke (rum a barren swamp into a
model agricultural cuuimuuity, and is
now oue of the finest areas in the
tinted Kingdom. It iB said that the
duke will visit the United States in
the near future.
Pioneer Firm to Extend Present
Business Premises—Elevator to Be Installed—Third
Storey to be Added.
As an indication of the conlldetice
which tho business men ol tho oity
have in the future of Rovelstoke and
surrounding distriot, it was stated
yesterday by Mr. C. ti. Humo of tbe
linn of C. ti. Humo & Co., to a representative nl the M aii -111:11 a i.ii that it
is tbe iutcntiou of that company to
enlarge the business premises occupied
by them within the near future.
Details ol tbe enlargement will bo
submitted, with plans and specifications at a meeting of the directors to
bo held to-day. Tbe plans for enlargement involve a proposal to rear another
storey, adding to the two storeys already dignifying tbe present structure
on the coruer of McKenzie avenue and
First street.
Whether this propoBiil i» carried out
or not, one of the features proposed
and which will iu any case be a part
ol the plans of the Improvement will
be the installation of a passenger
elevator for the accommodation of the
patrons of the store. Whether the
budding iH made a three-storey structure or remaining as it is, the customers will no longer have to place one
foot before another in raieing to an.
elevation in their search tor the kind
ol goods they desire, lt will be a
simple case of step on board to go
The firm of C. ti. Hume & Co. is
one of the oldest in Revelstoke and is
known in the whole district as one
whose business judgment is not calculated to mislead and its determination
to extend the present premises is nn
assurance of the stnbslity of business
conditions iii the city as well as asBiir-
atice ot a reasonably good outluclr. lor
the future.

Prairie Provinces Experience
Earthquake Shocks
Telegrams of Monday state that
earthquake shocks varying in intensity
were felt all through the Canadian
prairie west at, about 10:20, central
time, on Saturday evening, in most
places rattling dishes, banging doors
and shaking windows, told all of
the tale wbile win several places
people were driven out ol doors.
The shock was very light in Winnipeg
but wns distinctly felt at Selkirk, near
Lake Winnipeg, aud Irom there the
disturbance was noted at scattertd
points lor a thousand miles west
aeross the prairie. Shocks appear to
have been moBt severe in the heavy
"Ouinbo" country ol Saskatchewan,
along the main line uf the Canadian
Pacific, bul they were felt as far north
as Prince Albert. It is the liret time
in known history that earthquake
shocks have visited the Ked Kiver or
Saskatchewan valleys, and Prolcssor
Frank Allen Ph. D., of Manitoba
university, said Saturday night that
tbey might never recur. He attributes the disturbance to a wave or echo
ol serious earthquakes in Southern
America ur the Central Pacilic, and
holds that the vibration thus caueetl
has followed the chord of a circle,
coming out in the Canadian prairie.

Few    trusts   arc   so   sacred as a
public trust.     Such as involve the
confidence of an  immediate circle
of business associates ure important
us far as they go and widen according to lhe   number of   persons entrusting a business confidence or a
private enterprise   to  the management of  an individual holding tne
trust.    Heads of   corporations and
institutions   handling   large sums
placed   in   their trust ior business
purposes hold responsible positions
and when  found  unfaithful to the
obligations   oi   the trust reposed iu
tbem are amenable under the laws
of the land to  justice.     That trust
is therefore, greatest which includes
in   its purview the Imsiness of   the
people   of   a   nation   as   a whole.
Thus heads of governments elected
to administer the affairs of a nation
hold,   from   the   people, the  most
sacred   trust   imaginable.    A trust
which involves the handling of the
peoples'   money   i.-   scarcely   less
sacred   than   one     involving   the
social   and   moral    welfare   of   a

we think the federal administration is indictable at the bar of

instances must lend to a serious
draft on the funds of Ibe people,
lt must not be supposed that the
money paid in commissions was
paid out of tlie ordinary profits on
a trade transaction. The prices
were advanced to cover the deal
and the people's money filched to
enrich departmental harpies or replenish the party funds. Large
defalcations are to be deplored hut
a sufficient number of smaller ones
and tbe comparative ease with
which Ihey may be manoeuvred
makes serious inroads on the public funds. "Take us the foxes—the
little foxes that spoil tbe vines"
was the Hebrew prophets warning
to the nation of his day and its
applicability to the present times
may be surmised.
How to reach these corruptionists
that are fattening on the stolen
money of the taxpayers while the
government stilles investigation is
tbe problem of the Canadian people. Tolerance of any party or
government or political polity
which permits the persistent and
brazen looting of the treasury is
too much to ask A, even a prospering people. The mere dissemination of tlie tacts mu.-l awaken a
recoil in tiie mind or the voter with
its subsequent vengeance when the
time comes lo take action.

relatively small it is easy to conceive that a multiplication ol such; Yellow Flowers with Canadian

of   the   menace  to  vegetation which

Moral Exhibit
Seattle, May 19.—Probably the
most notable characteristic of the Pay
streak of the Alaska-Yukon-l'acific
Exposition is the unusual number of
"shows" having high educational
value. As a usual thing the amusement way of an exposition is all
straight luu, eome of it at times of
questionable character, but at Seattle
it is a different proposition. Absolute
cleanliness has been insisted upon and
the directors have accepted attraction
ol only tbe highest class.
At tbe St. Louis Exposition the
"Battle of the Monitor aud the Merrimack," took the gold medal for excellence over all other amusement
features exhibited on the Pike. It
was more intensely interesting, of a
higher educational value and more
ingenious from a mechanical standpoint than any other show. It iB
produced with the Batne care on the
Pay Streak and Emmet McConnell,
probabiy the best known showman in
America, tbe owner of the attraction
is personally supervising installation
which will cost $210,000.
The battle is a famous reproduction
of the I'aiiioiis civil war action which
atived the Union at one of the. most
critical juuetures. Not only are the
two war boats seen iu action, but
every move and every cannon-shot is
historically correct.

Searching Inquiry lo be Made
in the Kinrade Case
In the Kinrade case Attorney-General Foy has received tbe following
letter from 11. ti. Spera, foreman ol the
Kinrade jury: "I see by the press
that you are to take up the Kinrade
case early this week with the members
of the cabinet. The matter should be
given a most searching inquiry in the
interests of society, it is no doubt a
difficult task on account of the manner in which the evidence iif the principal witness waB given, but I feel as a
juror tbat our verdict was not nearly
strong enough, I do not know wbat
the medical report will be, hui I teel
ibat if sane she i. a dangerous girl.
Therefore, as I have said, the tragedy
Bhould be followed up. I hope I have
not transgressed in taking the liberty
of writing to you, but tbis, I feel, is
not a trilling mutter."
Attorney-General Foy says Crown
investigation ol tbe Kinrade murjter
will continue: " The case will not he
dropped until it is solved. The mills
of justice may seem fora time to grind
slow, but in the view of the department a slow course is assure course iu
this unusual and unfortunate case."
Mr. Foy says he never beard before
that the Kinrade jury had a name
drawn up in their verdict, and that
they had returned an open verdict in
order not to interfere with the plaiiB
ol tbe Crown.

Cricket Notes
In preparation for the matches to
be fought on May 24tb and 25tb, an
inter-club match was played ou Saturday between elevens captained by
Albert Annan and B. R. Atkins.
I sing the mitt ling and batting first on
a fairly good pitch, Annan's aide
scored 48, the only man reaching
double figures being that oid veteran,
C. W. Young. Atkins side put up a
total of just 100. tbe principal con-
Irii mors being himself uud Frank
Bourne, they making 38 and 22 respectively. Brooker proved tbe most
successful bowler, taking four wickets
at a coat of 28 runs in 10 overs. These
four wickets fell during lour of hia
overs, only two runs being scored off
24 balls. The match with Kamloops
ou Monday and witb Vernon ou Tuesday, promises good sport and the local
club will do everything possible for
the comfort of vilitors and onlookers
The selection committee will have the
names ol players for theae two matches

Annua! Early Summary Made
By Winnipeg Free Press     I
The Manitoba Free Press has iust
issued iis first monthly report on
seeding conditions, thus currying out
the tradition it established in the
early days of the Red Kiver settlement
tnd as its conclusions have had un-
usuil luck iu hitting tbe bullseyi
more often than not so lar ub Westeri
Caniuliin crop ojnditioiie are con
orned,considerable value attaches to
this summary   uf   actual   conditions.
In its preface, this well-known
Western Canadian journal explains
the rather unusually early date of
issuing this report by saying that it
wis in order tn satisfy the known
anxiety in business circles as to the
extent to wbicli feeding bus been
delayed by cold and unfavorable
The net, result ol the replies ol the
B'tveral hundred correspondents communicated   with, is  that  Irom 80  to
00 per ceut of Western Canadian
spring wheat is in the ground, but
very little ol it shows above the surface, owing to the inclement condition
which have accompanied actual seeding operations. However, the bright
summer weather of the paat few days
has been ideal to rush along germination, Tbe report goea ou to state
that the lateness in the growth is fully
offset by the conditions of the seedbed, whioh are ideal. There has been
plenty of muisture all over tbe country
and the prime requisite now is warm
weather and plenty of it.
Wheat seeding is fully two weeks
later than in 11108, bul from live to
ten days earlier than in 1!)07, and
grain has gone iu under more favorable circumstances than iu either ol
tbe years mentioned.
Perhaps the most striking feature
of the report, a* it is tbe one that iB
bound to meet the most hostile criticism, is that there is no increase fu
the acreage of laud Beeded to spring
wheat in the Canadian prairie west.
No doubt good grounds exist for that
contention, but, on the other hand,
bearing in mind the largo new acreage brought under the plow for the
first time, as well as the incentive to
sow wheat, neglectful ol all other
cereals by reason of its abnormally
high price, there must be 11 miscalculation Bomewhere.
Tbis report alludes to the greater
acreage seeded to coarse grains and
oats, but tbeiein lies the explanation
01 the unquestioned large increase iu
acreage under cultivation, and there
seems little reason to doubt that wheat
seeded will Bhow at least ten per cent
iucreuae over last year.

That Cement Contract
Ktiitur Mail-Hub itoi
Sin,— Haviug directed the attention
ol the Cily Council to the actual facts
of the case, we had not intended taking any fur. ber action at tbe present
time, but the statement in de by the
Mayor ut the lust council meeting us
to the saving effected by dealing out
ol tbe city, is au misleading, anil ao
obviously deceptive to the ratepayers
that we are constrained to again take
the matter up. The undersigned
made a (| notation to the city Ior
cement upon a basis of live or ten
cars at $2.00 per barrel F.O.B. Itevol-
atoko. Latei, a quotation was obtained
from Vancouver ut lf2.H0 per barrel,
and the quantity required waa apparently increased tu not leas than fifteen
cars. Tho maximum car load ul
cement is one hundred and eighty
barrels per car. Taking tho larger
quantity ol fifteen cars as a basis, the
total order would be tweiity-sevon
hundred barrels or a difference in
price ol $270, yet to quote trom ynur
report ol the Council proceedings, the
saving is staled at more than .$1000
Your report is as follows: "Besides,
snid His Worship, we have Biived the
city between $1000 and $1200, and
that is BUllie.ient business argument
for anybody."
The city latherB have every right to
buy tlieir supplies Irom Vancouver, or
the niorchiints ol any other outside
city il they wish to do so, but, in
extenuation wc will not allow audi a
grose and apparently deliberate miB
statement as thut above relerred to,
