SUkDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION
Provincial  Convention to  be

The first Sunday School convention
in tbe history of Revelstoke was held
in tbe Baptist Church on Monday and
Tuesday ol this week. Of those from
the outside there were present only
Mr. Stuart Muirhead, aud Rev. W. L.
McRae of Golden. Of the ministers,
teachers and workers of the several
Sunday Schools in tbe city, tbere was
a good attendance especially at the
evening session.
Tbe first session met on Monday
night at 8 o'clock with Rev.T.W. Hall
presiding. Good addresses were given
by Mies Atkinson and Rev. W. C Calder on thesubject "The Sunday School
in Relation to Good Citizenship." It
was a disappointment that Mr. Muirhead could not- be present at this session as was expected.
On Tuesday morning the general
subject of "How to Improve the Sunday School," was fully considered and
many practical suggestions made.
Addresses were given by Mr. J. G. McLean, Revs. J. R. Robertson, T. W.
Hall and W. P. Freeman.
Tuesday afternoon session opened
by a carefully prepared address by Mr.
F. Laing on the Sunday School Officer's Work. This wss followed by reports from the various Sunday Schools
of the c ty and district. These reports
were interesting and showed good
work being done among theohildren.
The subject of tbe S. S. Teacher's Responsibility was taken up by Mr. A.
E. Miller, whose address was one of
the best things of tbe convention.
On Tuesday evening there was a
good attendance at the convention,
and Mr. Stusrt Muirhead was given
the greater part of tbe evening to take
up these very important subjects, vis.,
"Demands of Primary Work," "Lesson
Construction and Piesentation," and
"Present Demands in S. S. Work."
These were all very interesting and
illuminating. Short sddres es were
given by Revs. W. L. McRae and J. R.
Robertson on tbe subject, "The Place
of the Home in the Religious Education of Children." Many questions
were asked and hearty discussion
characterised the closing session of the
convention.
Before tbe convention closed the
following officers of the Reveletoke
Di-trict of the International S. S.
Association were elected for the ensuing year, viz.:
President—Mr. A. E. Miller.
First Vice Pres.—Mr Clay.
Second     "       —Mr. Stevenson.
Sec-Tress.—Mr. J. G. McLean.
These officers together with tbe

Preparations are also now under
way for a large Provincial S. S. Convention of the Interior of B. C. to be

will be an important affair and will be

FATAL MINE
EXPLOSION
At The Old Mine at Canmore,
Alberta—Three Men Dead,
and Four Injured — Mine
Closed Pending Investigation
Calgary, April 17.—Three men
were killed and four others seriously
burned by an explosion at what is
known as tbe Old Mine at Canmore
yesterday. The dead are Gum Capel-
son and Matt Starr, Finlanders, and
W. |Wilmott, an Englishman, acting
as fire boBS. The latter leaves a wile
and family of four little ones, who
only arrived from England a few
months ago. The injured are all Fin-
landers. The cause of tbe explosion
has not been determined yet, and the
mine has been closed, pending an investigation.
.. Asleep at Duty's Post
London, April 18.—The editorials
in this morning's newspaper all reflect tbe intense disquietude of tbe
public mind arising out of the report
of the Board of Trade that tbe wreok
on tbe London A Northwestern Railway at Shrewsbury, on October 15th
last, in which 15 persons acre killed
and about 40 were injured, was caused
by the driver of the engine falling
asleep at his poet. It appears that
the engineer had been working at bis
duties for from 10 to 12 hours during
the four previous nights. The newspapers suggest a similar cause for
other great wrecks, and insist that tbe
railway companies use greater precautions to secure their employees
proper sleep. The incident is beiug
used to resist the agitation for shorter
hours for railway employees.
Nine Months for Negligence.
Milton, Ont., April 17.—Riohard
Newton was sentenced to nine months
imprisonment without hard labor tbis
morning by Judge Anglin, after tbe
jury had found him guilty of criminal
negligence in causing the death of
Engineer Charles Armstrong, of Toronto Junction.
The latter was on a special C. P. R.
train bearing the Mystic Shriners from
Toronto to London, March 11, and
Newton tbre w the wrong switch at
Guelph Junction.
Overseas Subsidy Continued
Ottawa, April 17.—The Dominion
Government has succeeded in getting
the British Government to reconsider
its decision to withdraw from tbe
present agreement with Canada regarding the payment of tbe subsidy to
the Canadian Pacific Railway now
giveu for tbe Imperial Overseas mail
service to China and Japan, through
Canad.. The British authorities are
now disposed to continue tlie subsidy,
or at least a large part of it.
STOVE EXPLODED
Narrow Escape From Serious
Fire in Lawrence Block.
Fire broke out in-the second storey
of the Lawrence Hardware Co. premises about half past five on Thursday
afternoon, at the result of au explosion of a gasoline stove. It appears
that Earl ileal, C. P. R. brakeman was
preparing his supper ever a plumbers
ordinary gasoline stove and while
sitting at the table in his room in the
Lawrence Block, the stove exploded,
severely burning bim and setting fire
to tbe room. W. A. Sturdy bearing
the explosion and the noise being
made by Bcal, htin-idly ran out from
the Btore to see what was the matter,
and getting the alarm from Beal,
promptly turned in the alarm to Fire
Hall No. 2, the brigade arriving with
tbe fire fighting apparatus in an incredibly short time.
Tbe Lawrejce staff, however, bad
got tbeir own hose to work and extinguished the flames in their store
room, which, by some inexplicable
manner had crept through the door
cracks or wall from the room where
the explosion took place, to the store,
where many inflammables were   kept.
Beal managed to stamp out the
flames in his room before much damage was done, and the services of the
brigade were not called up. Beal is
now in the ho.pital, where his burns,
which are serious, are being attended
to. Tbe explosion was of such force as
to blow out a large section of the roof
skylight, glass, metal frame and all,
at some distance away from'and above
tbe scene of the accident.
Prompt measures on the part of the
Lawrence staff prevented what undoubtedly would have ended in a
disastrous conflagration.
Nelson Chief of Police Dismissed
Nelson, April 17.—Peter O'Carroll,

then police commissioners, was yesterday dismissed from the force fur conduct uf a highly reprehensible nature,

Tokonto, April 17.—Regarding tbe
complaint ul alleged discrimination
against Englishmen ou city work,
Engineer Rust says that newly arrived
Englishmen are a grumbling lot uf
men and raise trouble. After thoy
are in the country lor two or three
years and get sett led down, they are
all right. He says the city gets better
work out ol Italians.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1908
THE EASTER SPIRIT.
Easter belongs lo neither sect
nor country. It is as broad as the
sunshine and as universal as life.
Nature now bursts the chrysalis of
the grave and pule on her beautiful resurrection robes. !So should
humanity rise above the corruption
of tierli to higher spiritual being.
As individuals may we learn the
lew on tbat "men may rise on the
stepping stones of their dead selves
to higher thing " After all, the
highest good we can get from tbe
truth of H after lies not in the hope
of life beyond tbe grave but the
new life of which that to come is
but tbe continuation. The call is
tu a Utter, higher life, built upon
the old dead self: let us hearken.
"Thut which thou lOWWt is not
quiuk«ii»d except it die,"
amount, he does not even deserve
the sympathy which one up against
depression in business at any time
should receive. If a merchant,
either wholesale or retail, or any
other person, is not prepared to
meet a fair demand made by a
creditor, it is an easy matter to
write a line or two explaining the
circumstances. It is discouraging
to be handed a returned draft by
tbe bank labelled, "no response,"
and to wait for an explanation
which never comee. The effect of
this can only be injurious in the
eyes of the one issuing the draft
the credit of the man offending, It
is bad enough to fail in making
payment and give excuses, but it
causes utter lack of confidence to
fail to pay and not even make an
apology. The only conclusion the
drawer can come to is that the
drawee is either dishonest or else
ignorant of business customs. There
is another matter worthy of attention and that is the practice of returning drafts for the slightest kind
of reason, frequently just because
there may be a trifling error in the
amount. Men that have business
relations with each other should
understand that it does not pay to
refuse to correct mistakes and why
should one return bank paper for a
little discrepancy in ligures. It
looks as if the one refusing the
draft doubted the honesty of the
drawer to put the error right. A
wholesaler for instance cannot
afford to -sacrifice his customer's
good will by refusing to allow for a
mistake, neither can the retailer
afford to refuse to make up for mistakes in dealing with bis customers.
Why then should any business
man put another, if he is of any
consequence at all, to any unnecessary inconvenience for the sake of
a little oversight. Co-operation in
commercial life is essential for the
mutual advantage of individual
merchants and when the ordinary
courtesy and attention to the details is observed there will be no
rupture. A "square deal" in business is often worth thousands of
cash in capital, and the man who
gives attention to business courtesy
can get more credit and time than
he who annoys his creditors by unnecessary neglect.
THE CITY BEAUTIFUL
We notice that many cities of
the province have instituted what
is termed an Arbi.tr and cleaning
up day, which means that a special
day has been declared a public
holiday by the mayor, for the Jpur-
poBe of enabling every citizen to
devote his whole time to cleaning
up his premises and the lane and
street adjacent thereto, as well es
to the planting of trees and other
means of beautifying and tidying
the city. We would urge that the
civic authorities of Revelstoke,
follow the general example which
is, at this time being put into practice all over B. 0., of calling a holiday on a day to be chosen for the
express purposed having a general
all round clean   ap,      No one can

RAILWAYS AND THF PEOPLE
How the Railway Problem Will
Be Solved
" Only through a thorough understanding and appreciation of each of
the difficulties, trials and limitations
of the other, will come the final just
determination of the relations between
the publio and the railroads, and what
is due from each other."
Such was the declaration of Paul
Slump, Assistant General Passenger
Agent of the Southern Pacific Railroad, in a recent address.
" The affection we have for our
friends," Mr. Sboup continued, "and
our steadfast confidence in them, are
not created solely through knowledge
of their strength and virtues, but as
well through knowing tbeir troubles
and their limitations.

country, may be thousands of miles

" He doe. not know that no railroad
can tell a day in advance, the volume
or direction of the tide or traffic nor
gauge accurately what kind of traffic
or where, at anv of its two thousand
stations, it may be offered the next
day. No matter how great the magnitude of the country's commerce, nor
what unexpected demand may arise in
some remote place, our friend will
insist that the railroad must immediately furnish ca.B ordered or suffer
fines.
" Perhaps witb honesty and sincerity, but without any investigation
into the cost of railway maintenance
or transportation or construction,
without consideration for changing

The word Esster, derived from the
Anglo-Saxon "Eastra," or, in Teutonic
"Ostara," the goddess of dawn or
spring, whose chief fe. tival wss celebrated about the time of the vernal
equinox, is probably of the same root
with Esst, signifying "bright" or
"shining." The Germans to this day
call April tbe ' Osterraonas."

TRUE FISSURE
What Cincinnati Mine Investors
are Doing in Lardeau
Eighteen months ago tbe mining
possibilities of the Lu doau attracted
the attention of Angu- W. Mishiuv, a
svell-known Cincinnati broker. Mainly through the inlinenee of A. G.
Frai-er, the Trout Like ineicliiint, Mr.
Miobuw became interested iu the
Broadview, ou tbe hill behind Ferguson, at d whose dump of copper and
silver-lead ores would nuke most men
dream of rich mines, mills a\d smelters. Mr. Mishaw organised a company who purchased the Itroadview
from the Trout Lake owners, and inaugurated further development work
by the extension of tbe No. 3 tunnel,
which was last winter run several
huudrid feet on tbe Droadvi'W vein
towards the shaft,. Tbis work did not
develop any shoots of clean ore save a
4-inch streak of grey copper running
from If 150 tn !fI00 a ton in value.
Results, however, showed the vein
mineralised for a width of from 14 to
28 feet. The values run about .$10 a
t in.
Near the Broadview, however, was a
group of claims whose big tne bodies
outcropped over an area of four acreB,
showing an immense amount of low-
grade ore, interspersed with rich
shoots, who.-e values run up into hundreds of dollars per ton This group
of claims included the St. Elmo, owned by Messrs. H Mcl'herson and
Edge, of Trout Lake, ai d T. Taylor,
M.P.P. of Revelstoke; the True Fissure
owned by Messrs. Holten and Downs,
of Revelstoke; and the Blue Bell
owned by J. Stunber, of Ferguson,
ami A. St. G. llamiiierslej', of Vancouver. Tliis group a tructed the
ambitions of the mating! ment of Ibe
Broadview and they engaged E. A.
Haggen, M.E. of Kevelstoke, to examine and report un it. On bis report the group was purchased for a
large sum, and all payments due have
been met, the final payment next
July being all tbat is required to complete the purohase and secure to the
new owuere full title to the property.
Last fall cabins were built, including a kitohen and dining' room 20ft.
by 30ft. and bunkhouse 16ft. by 20ft.
Owing to tbe financial conditions in
the States the commencement of development work was delayed till January last, where a trail through the
snow was dug out from the trail on
the north fork of the Lardeau river to
tbe mine, a distance of three miles.
A force of seven men, under the superintendence of Newton W. Emmens,
M.E., of Trout Lake, and witb J. Parisian as foreman, was put to work.
The drift on the main vein from tbe
crossout tunnel on the Blue Bell was
extended, an underhand atone run on
a shoot of galena, and a trial ship
ment of tbis ore was made to Trail
smelter.
The ore shoot in the St. Elmo vein
was then attacked, but tbe vein was
found to be broken up and displaced.
However, it carried from 12 inches to
four feet of ore showing a good deal
of grey copper, witb galena, zinc
blende and pyrites' The vein iB here
here much decomposed and carries a
large quantity ol carbonates. At one
point there were two feet of grey copper. This ore wss so easily handled
that, with three men breaking ore,
one mucking, and two sorting, as
much as a hundred sacks a day was
put up lor shipping.
The ore sacked for shipment will
amount to three carloads of a probable
value of $80 u ton. As the trail is
now breaking up no more ore will be
shipped at presont but permanent
development will be begun by the
diivingof a cross-cut tunnel into the
big vein at an elevation of 5,700 feet
or 300 leet below the present workings
on tbe St. Elmo.
The St. Elmo vein has straightened
up as work proceeded to a dip of 65
degrees. In the old days of the camp
prospectors claim to have traced it by
its grey copper Uoat lor hundreds of
feet to lhe west uf the present opening.
This vein is a cross-course on the
main system, The mass ol the ore
carries silver, lead and line, the latter
being a prominent constituent of the
ores. The metallurgical problem is
the principal one atTeoting this property, aud if that oan be successfully
solved theie is every reason to believe
the True Fissure Mining and Milling
Company has a great future ahead of
it.
Tho ore will have to he treated in
the vicinity of the mine, and witb a
successful plant In operation the mine
will be a large employer of labor and
bring new life blood to the neighboring towns uf Ferguson snd Trout
Lake.
THE SILVER CUP MINE
Development Steadily in Progress.—Large Ore Shipment
The Silver Cup mine has been tbe
stand-by of Northeast Kooteusy from
a mining point ol view (or well nigh
A SCENE IN THE BASIN AT THE CHEOPS CAVES.
fourteen years. Other properties have
started up and shutdown; some have
started shipping and sesrtled tbe community with their trumpetings of
fabulous returns, till the ore run out
or the treasury run dry; but the Silver Cup, year in and year out, has
stripped its high grade ores, paid its
way, and employed steadily from 50 to
75 men.
About two years ago tbe mine
passed into new hands, with George
Alexander, of Katlo, as general manager on behalf of tbe English owners,
and J. Merry, M. E., as superintendent.
Development has steadily proceeded
from the lower level tunnel run by the
former owners to tap tbe ore shoots at
a depth of 900 feet from the collar of
the shaft and a shaft has now been
sunk 100 feet below this tunnel with
good results.
A new compressor, operated by
water power, was installed last year at
Nine Mile, the terminal of the Silver
Cup's aerisl tramway on tbe south
fork of the Lardeau river, and this
compressor supplied the greater air
capacity required for development and
for operating tbe hoist whioh was put
in to sink the shaft to still further
depths on the Silver Cup veins.
Owing to an sccident to the flume
by the winter's snow and ice, the sinking of the shaft had to be suspended,
but will shortly be resumed, when the
shaft will be sunk another 100 feet, or
200 in all below the present low level
tunnel. II the resuits continue satisfactory another low level tunnel will
be run.
The Silver Cup last mouth shipped
100 tons, the largest month shipment
in the history of the mine. The ore
averages 150 una., per ton silver, jj oil,
gold and about 40 per cent. lead. Last
month's shipment was worth about
|18,000—not s bad showing for a mine
ciinliui'il In the mining and shipping
of clean ore.
The zinc contents are less than
formerly, minimising the penalties
thejinini- used to pay ou its /.inc.
The mine is at present employing
00 men. Without the Cup's shipments and the labor employed in
producing them, tbe Lardeau would
have been a lifeless camp of lute.

UNITY IS STRENGTH
Victoria Fruitgrowers Join the
Central Exchange
The Victoria Fruitgrowers Association have decidsd to come in to the
British Columbia Central Exchange
after a conference with James Drum-
mond,the new manager and organizer.
Tbere are at present about 130 members of the association, but Mr. Drum-
mond starts out on the rosd on Monday, and hopes to get all the fruit
growers of the island into the association.
The organisation is the outcome of
the great growth of the fruitgrowing
industry of British Columbia during
the past few years. Nelson, Cliilli-
wack, Vernon and other fruit growing
centres all boait their associations,
which are affiliated with the B. C.
Central Exchange with headquarters
at Revelstoke. The central body has
representatives in all the principal
markets, and directs the shipments
and fixes the prices, thus putting an
end to the former haphazard method
of doing business, which was of benefit neither to the grower nor the consumer, placing both at the mercy of
chance and the wholesalers.
