Five Men Killed.
Port Arthur, Ont., May 29.—Five
lives were lost, and tbe destruction of
property which will reach a total of
$200,000, and possibly more, as the result of tbe breaking away of a dam on
Current River, above the city power
house Wednesday night.
The rush of water striking a bend I
in tbe river about hall a mire above
tbe mouth broke through tbe banks
and continued down its mad career
over tbe city park, around the municipal powerhouse and across the Canadian Pacific railway,
In going through the park it carried
away all the dance halls, ice cream
stands, pavilions, swings, etc.
Crossing tbe C. P. R. it washed away
the bridge over the river and also
created havoc about the power house
situated at the mouth of the river,
With the C. P. R. bridge was washed
away about three-quarters of a mile of
track. AltnoBt immediately after tbe
accident a C. P. R. freight train came
along from the east and crashed over
the wrecked bridge into the river with
eight or ten cars on top of the locomotive.
The engineer, fireman and brakes-
man went down and were killed or
drowned, and alsjo, it ia believed, two
unknown men who were stealing a
ride on the train. The men killed
were Engineer Savard, Fireman McBride and Brakeman Inman, all residents of Schreibcr. The city power
plant, light and water system are
crippled and it will be days before
tbey are ready again.
Large numbers of people are endeavoring to visit the scene ot the catastrophe, but cannot get near it because
tbe place is flooded, and for the sumo
reason it is impossible to make an
estimate ol damage. The bodies of
the men have not yet been recovered.

75c. He said that the brigade needed
better compensation for their work
and for the clothes tbey damage, in
many cases tbey being uut of pocket
for such damage. It was a hard
mutter to keep the brigade together
under the present conditions. It was
the duty of tbe city to protect their
firemen and reimburse tbem ior loss.
It was risky work and deserved moie
The council, feeling that the brigade was of the utmost importance to
the city, agreed that they should
be better paid, and resolved that each

Mass Meeting Resolves on rigid
Moral Reforms
Miss Murcutt who haa been lecturing hero during the week made her
last appearance on Thursday nigbt
before a good audience. His worship,
the mayor, and the Revs. T. W. Hall,
J. R, Robertson, W. P. Freeman, and
W. C. Calder had seatB on tho platform Miss Murcutt devoted the evening to treating witb the Island prison
of Snghalien, the Russian fortress, and
graphically defcribed the horrors of a
Russian prison and tho lawlessness of
life in those regions. She told how
the Czar owned all the liquor saloons
and vodka shops in the country and
the curse that that fiery drink had
been to Russia and bow it led to
crime. The lecturer then went on to
advocate for the upholding of the law
regarding liquor saloons and urged
the people to rise in a body and stamp
out the drink curse, She told the
audience that the country would be
better and purer, and crime would become less and the people would be
more prosperous. Miss Murcutt then
made an appeal to the people to organize a branch of the Women's
Christian Temperance Union, and
passed round cards calling for willing
members. A hearty vote of thanks
was tendered to the lecturer as well as
to the members of the ministerial
association who had aided Miss Murcutt in her work. At the close of the
meeting a resolution waB passed by
the citizens of Revelstoke in mass
meeting that the civic authorities be
called upon to strictly enforce the
laws and bylaws relating to the closing
of saloons and bars on Sundays as
well as at nigbt, and that all professional gamblers be turned out of tbe

struction of a few miles of road,
direct communication at all seasons
from Revelstoke to the scene of
operations can be hud. The Board
are determined to see this mutter
through, knowing full well what is
the issue at stake, and what it will
mean for Revelstoke. Apart from
that, the matter is a purely provincial one which will benefit
wholesale houses at the coast as
well as the merchants of our city,
and by securing this enormoiiB
trade for B. C, business will in the
ordinary course of events increase.
Our Board of Trado as representing our people have now taken this
matter up, but it is also up to the
community as a city to lend their
undivided support and back up the
Board in their endeavors to secure
thoir ends. We look to the government for help and in view of the
fact that incidentally a vast area
of rich agricultural land will consequently be opened up round
Canoe River, from which the government will derive revenue, also
taking into consideration that a
large amount of money annually
finds its way into the provincial
treasury from timber in that region,
the government has a certain obligation to perform in this direction
and one which, if carried out, will
directly result in a further enrichment of a valuable riding such as
this is and the increase of commercial prosperity to the province as a
whole. This is a question of deep
publio interest, and every citizen
should do his share in furthering
this object.

8ATUBDAY, MAY 30, 1908
It   ia gratifying  to  see that the
Board of Trade ie thoroughly alive
to its   duties   and   responsibilities
where matters of municipal as well
ae of  provincial  interest  are concerned.    The movement now occupying the minds of  our local business men most,  is  one the importance   ol   which   cannot   be    over
estimated and   which  if carried to
a successful  Issue will have direct
benefit  to   Revelstoke,  as  well as
indirectly   to the   province   iUell.
We are convinced in our own mind
that the route  from  here to Canoe
river and northward lo the line of
the G.T.P. construction is the most
feasible  of  anv, and bolide, being
the shortest, presents no great dilli-
culty in   the way   of   preliminary
preparation   before   the    route   is
opened up for  transportation purposes.     There is every probability
of the provincial government coming to the assistance and helping in
tbe opening up of those portions of
tbe route  which as yet, in a measure, prevent direct cheap and easy
transportation, and   we can safely
eay that   what   route is definitely
decided upon by   the Grand Trunk
contractors, the   government   will
lend its support.    We are within a
180 miles   of   where   the supplies
will   be   needed, and   the greater
portion of   lhat   distance   can   be
made hy  water, and with the con-
It was interesting to note the
other night that when, during a
public lecture, dealing with temperance and moral reforms, the
lecturer called for a resolution from
the mass meeting of citizens to the
effect that they would take stepB to
impress upon the civic authorities
the necessity of closing saloons and
bars an Sunday and running out
all gamblers from the city, the
meeting as a whole signified its
approval oi ihe motion by rising
to its feet and carrying it, and
seemed very enthusiastic about it;
but we wonder how many of those
present that night really meant to
take tinv Bteps to back up their resolution aud carry out these intentions instilled into their mind by
the lecturer. We know very well
lhat Revelstoke is not a model
city, although no worse than any
other in the west, and we are quite
aware that steps will have to be
taken to bring about a different
stale of affairs here, and adopt
rules and regulations that have
evolved in eastern cities, but unless
the people bestir themselves and
show that they mean to have this
and that done, no change will take
place. As the lecturer said of the
reverend gentlemen on the platform on 'J'hursda
the public good than the disregard
of their political duties on the part
of a very hirge number of intelligent and influential citizens. Col-
ge-bred men of power and
effectiveness in business or the professions, and many other men who
by force have made their merits
known in other walks of life, not
only repudiate their own political
obligations as citizens, but scoff at
those of their fellows who sacrifice
time and comfort and personal in
terest in the seemingly vain endeavor of redeeming politics from
the curse of corruption and graft.
The day is coming when men of
that ilk will be known for the
snobs they are, and when in the
just estimates of public opinion of
superiority will be held as ignorant
selfishness and as treason to the
The elector thus in B. C. too,
who takeB no interest in the politi
cal government of his country,
who cares not whether this man or
that man be elected, should he de
prived of his citizenship which he
haB despised, and treated as a trai
tor. It is essential for the well
being of the country to have the
best men to represent the people,
who will honestly represent them
and look after their interests zeal
ously and with fullest integrity,
and who are not afraid to abide by
their own convictions and see that
their constituents get what they deserve. So then the man, in whose
hands lies the power of furthering
the interests of his country and
who depises his birthright as a
Canadian citizen, ought to be
branded Esau-like as a "profane
person," whose interests in his city
or his province is centred and circumscribed in the mess of  pottage.

Cost of Land Per Acre.—Net
Returns Estimated
What should be the cost of orchatd
land iu the Kootenay and what return
should lhe investor reasonably expect,
are two very important questions thnt
are frequently asked here at the pres
ent time.
The opinion of Roy C. Brock, the
secretary of the Kootenay Fruitgrowers' association at Nelson, when asked
on those to points and the li.ures he
gives are worthy of very careful attention. Mr. Brock states that over the
bearing period of ten years one of the
best mixed orchards that lots c.ime
under bis notice yielded an average of
$550 per acre, giving an average net
income to the grower of about $265
per acre. This, in Mr. Brock's opinion is a very conservative estimate of
the product of an ordinary fruit ranch
and in his opinion these figures may
lie safely used as the basis for the calculation of the value of fruit lands in
the Kootenay district. Ten per cent
is an exceedingly good return on the
average investment. Hence $2(55 per
acre net profit represents ten per cent
on $2650 per acre and shows that land
value at present hereabouts cannot
now be said to be exorbitant judging
from the prices advertised. Mr. Brock,
however, is careful to add thnt all intending purchasers of land should personally visit, investigate and ascertain
all the facts as to its fruit producing
value before buying.
Mr Brock figures out the approximate value of an acre of land in this
way: Land, $100; clearing, $100; cost
to get land into bearing, approximate,
$350; total, $550, At lirst this lo ike
like a lot of money to pay for land,
bat it must bo remembered that this
same land, if adapted for fruit growing
will repay this amount in two years
after planting.
It must be quoted, however, that the
figures quottd do not take into consideration the annual crops of small
fruits and v. getables that can be cultivated during the time the trees are
growing From three to five acres of
land devoted to lhe cultivation of
small fruitB sh u'd be i-utlicient lo
support an ordinary fan.ily if proper
cultivation and ordinary intelligence
is used. There is of course other adjuncts such as keeping of fowl which
will go to make tha small ranch a paying institution and which will be of
great assistance during the time the
trees are growing up.

Revelstoke to Canoe River in
14 Hours—Board of Trade
Take Decisive Action Last
Thursday Night.
A special meeting of the Board of i
Trade waB held on Thursday night to
further discuss the question oi the
opening up of the Canoe River route
to facilitate the transportation of
supplies for the contractors of the construction.
President F. B. Lewis was in the
Correspondence waB read from Premier McBride who stated tbat he
could not visit Revelstoke on this trip
because present engagements would
not permit him, but promised to meet
the Board at a late date next month
and discuss any question that the
Board might lay before him.
T. Taylor, M.P.P, stated tbat he
had been down to. Nelson oo Saturday
last and discussed the matter with the
premier, who suid that he had wired
to the Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works asking him lo come lo
visit Revelstoke and if he could not
make the trip, arrange that the chief
engineer should come. He said that
the premier would probably be through
here on June 14th, when he would
stop off and meet the Board. Mr.
Taylor said that he had explained the
details regarding the Canoe River
route to the 6. T. P. .to the piemier,
who informed him whatever route wns
chosen the government would sssi-t,
but, of course, any definite sum of
money could not now be ostimated.
A wire from Mr Fulton to the
Board was read which stated that he
could not come thiss week and meet
the Board
G. S. McCarter said that something
Bhould be done, aud if we could not
get a minister here, then lets get an
engineer, and give bim all the information possible. The Ashcrott route
was now being used, but the route
from Revelstoke was easier and shorter.
T. Taylor said that if the chief
commissioner could not come, Mr.
Gamble might, and report to tbe
A. McRae said that there were
many inducements to contractors to
use this route and he urged tbat the
government be made to commit tbem
selves to a promise to help in the
M. Taylor affirmed tbat they had
practically give that promise.
B.R.Atkins eaid that the Board
should have an expert opinion on tbe
route and a report from Mr. Gamble
to lay before tbe premier on his visit
here which could prove tbe feasibility
ol the Canoe River route over all
A. McRae said that the Vancouver
Board of Trade should be asked to
help aud that tbis matter should be
presented to them as provincially being of direct interest to al) wholesale
firms from which tbe supplies would be
bought and thus keep the trade in the
province. Vancouver should assist
the local Board and it would be greatly
to their advantage to do so.
The president suggested tbat a delegate be sent to Vancouver from here
and convince tbe Vancouver business
men that this route would be tbe best
for them.
It was then moved by T. Taylor and
seconded by J. McLennan tbat Messrs.
McRae and McCarter lie sent to Vancouver to meet the Board of Trade,
merchants and wholesale men and get
them inter Bled, and convince tbem
that by supporting the Kevelstoke
Board in urging for the opening up of
the Canoe River route for transportation of supplies to the G.T.P., they
would be beiipfilling themselves. The
motion carried uoaiiimuuely.
lt was moved by McCarter,seconded
by Sine tbat ihe secretary wire the
premier tbat as Mr. Fulton could uot
come here thut Mr.''. iiihlc bo sent up
to Keveleloke at ui "•     Carried.
McCarter said tli . if ihe business
was there, there shoull be no trouble
about transportation.
It was then moved by Atkins,
and seconded by Gordon that tbe
preside at form a standing committee
to meet tbeG. T. P. contractors when
they come in on behalf of the lloaid
and discuss the qui .ition.    Carried.
A. Joliin- ni • aggested that publicity
regarding ibe Cauoe Hiver route and
all details n. iting to it should be
made snd widely circulated in all
the leading journals and it was moved
by McRae and seconded by McLennan
that Messrs, Haggen, Johnson, Atkins, and 11 Cunniugliam Morris form
a press committee to carry out this
suggestion     Carried.

Editor Maii.-IIkuaui.
In your editorial of May 23rd, under
the heading "Has Never Told Ug,"
occurs the sentence : "Socialism haB
never yet told us distinctly, if it has
tried to tell us at all, what its form of
government is to be." To this we
plead guilty, aud for a very good reason : The abolition of capitalism predicates the abolition of government.
Government implies that there is
someone to be governed, implies in
other words the existence of rulers and
ruled. When all people are free the
necessity for government ceases.
Let me make my meaning a little
more clear. For thousands of years
there have existed in society two
classes: a ruling class and a ruled
class. In the earlier stages of social
evolution these were known as masters
and slaves, later feudal lords and serfsi
today as capitalists and workers.
The slaves of old produced by their
toil, wealth, which immediately became the property of their masters,
those who owned not only the slaves
but the natural resources Out of
this wealth the slave receivi d hi. keep,
it being necessary to keep bim alive in
order that he might continue toiling
and producing wealth. The government of the time was the legislative
instrument of the slave masters and
through it they drew up laws for the
government of their slaves. The form
of these governments mattered nothing. Republics, monarchies or empires, autocracies, oligarchies or hierarchies, they were all and every one
the instrument of the master class.
That any of them should even pretend
to legislate in the interests of the
slave class would bave been regarded
as au absurdity.
Eventually, chat.el slavery rau its
course. Wealth concent rated into
fewer and fewer hands. Slaves became
more and more numerous. The volume of wealth they produced over and
above their keep became so enormous
that the most wanton waste, tbe most
profligate luxury could not consume
it. It became no longer profitable to
employ slaves, no longer necessary to
feed tbem enough to keep them in
proper condition. Imperial Egypt
sought to solve the problem by diverting the labor of a whole generation to
the building of useless pyramids. Republican Sparta by hunting down its
surplus slaves with bow and spear.
Seemingly cruel in tbiB but indeed
more kind than to follow the present
method of turning them into the
streets to die of slow starvation. But
everywhere tbeir efforts were in vain.
Society, unable longer to feed and
shelter the majority nf its useful portion, perished as all slaves societies
I*pon its ruins arose tbe feudal
society of the middle ages. The master no longer owned the slave, he
owned the land to which the serf was
a mere attachment. Tbe serf toiled
on the land to produce wealth for his
lord, in consideration of which he wae
permitted to raise produce for himself
sufficient for his own modest needs.
He resembled the chattel slave in the
fact that all the product of his toil
over and above his keep belonged to
his master. The government was in
the hands of the nobility and its purpose was to rule the serfs and keep
them in subjection.
Like chattel slavery, feudalism attained ils zenith ani became decadent.
As its decadence advanced, the handicraftsmen and merchants became more
numerous and more powerful. Feu
dalism witb its outworn restrictions
burred the path of progress and waa
eventually overthrown. The landlord
wbb crowded off the stage by the manufacturer, und capitalism was horn.
The scene of productive activity was
transferred from the lain! to the factory. The factory called Ior an unrestricted supply of free labor and so the
serf was freed. Freed to flock into tho
centres of industry to compete with
one another (or the privilege of selling
their power to labor, tbere physical
energy from day to day. Unlike the
chattel slave, who was sold bodily, the
worker of today sells himself piecemeal und receives us a price wages
sufficient in the average to provido his
necessities from day to day. The
necessary condition of the sale being
that be produce more wealth than the
equivalent of bis wages, i.e. his koep.
The workers arc thus placed on the
same level as the chattel slaves. The
product of the labor over und above
their cost of subsistence belongs to
their musters, the capitalist class. As
of old wo have the two classes: the
master class owning ibe resources ul
the earth und the tools of production,
and the working class who produce
the wealth of tho world, It follows
that the interests of these two classes
ure diametrically opposed, Government being in the liaiuls of the capitalists naturally it legislates in the
interests of that class. It would be
foolish to legislate in favor ol the
Working class and no against their
own interests.
Tbo aim ol the Socialists is to arouse
the working olass to take possession ol
the government to the end that the
natural resources and the machinery
of production may be made the property of the people as a whole. Then
whatever the people produce belongs
to the people. No man is any longer
compelled to surrender the product of
his toil to another. Classes thus
cease to exist and class iule becomes
an anomaly. Goverumeut dieB out as
there is no longer u claBB to govern
aod a class to be governed. An ad
ministration of industry takes its
place. This administration already
largely exists and is in the hands of
workers to a very large extent. Thus
if the owners of the C.P.R. were to all
die tomorrow it would not affect the
running of one train.
You ask us to formulate tbe detaiU
of tbis administration. Butnot being
prophets were we to attempt to say
how the people will carry on this administration in tbe future, we would
be as foolish as would have been anyone who, at the decadence of feudalism, had attempted to lay down a
detailed plan of the present system.
This much we know: Just us feudalism succeeded chattel slavery, as
capitalism replaced feudalism, so must
capitalism be replaced by socialism,
which is its offspring.
The trouble with the opponents of
socialism is that they never take the
trouble to study what it is. The one
exception tbat has come within tbe
writer's knowledge being Professor
Scbaeflie, Austrian cabinet minister,
to whose "Quintessence of Socialism'
I would refer you. In this our proposition hae been so nearly correctly
stated and so weakly refuted that it
was used by the German Socialists for
propaganda purposes during the eleven
years when tbe publishing of socialist
literature wns prohibited.
