TO BE ERECTED
Board of Trade Discusses Several Matters with C.P.R. Advertising Agent-Scenic Railway to Victoria Park
A publicity building at the C.P.R.
station, nn serial railway up Mount
Revelatoke nnd a general visit to Victoria park, in which members of the
Board will partake with \V. T. Hobson,
advertising agent of the Canadian Pacilic Kailway Company, were among
the matters discussed at a apecial
meeting of the Board ot Trade with
Mr. Hobson last evening.
Mr. Hobson explained the advertising methods of his company, laying
great stress on the value ot pictures
and lantern slides. He said he had
been delighted with Hevelstoke and
its progress, and the company was
anxious to help the town as the success of one meant tbe success of the
other.
W. M. Lawrence, who presided, asked
Mr, Robson what he thought of the
scheme he hnd mentioned ol having n
plnce at the station where they could
distribute literature and give information to travellers.
Mr. Roobou thought the idea au
excellent one, and suggested an artistic booth finished in bark like the
forestry hiiildiDg at the A.Y.P. exposition.
Mayor Lindmark said that a year
ago Mr. Busteed aud Mr. Kilpatrick
had agreed to give tbem a site for
Biich a building iu a convenient place
on the platform, and it should be utilized. The troublo waB that travellers
landed heie and did not know what to
do with themselvea as there was no
one to take care of tbem, though
there waa plenty to he seen if they
were only directed to it. If auything
were to be done tbis season the building should be erected within the next
two weeks.
Mr. Hobson agreed that 110 time
should be lost, and suggested that a
four page booklet should be prepared
setting forth the advantages of tbe
district, so that it could be distiibuted
at the booth.
President Lawrence named Messrs.
Lindmark, Foote and Hagar a committee to aee to the building ol the
booth.
Mr. Robson snid the company intended to advertiae thia section much
more than they had formerly done aB
they were anxious to divert traffic
through the Arrow and Kootenay
lakes country aa much in possible.
The president asked whether any
company had yet been formed in connection with the aerial railway scheme
for Mount Revelstoki.
Mayor   Lindmark   eaid   110,   but a
that il any district took a page ol
advertising, they would give in return
one-third ol a page of illustrated
write-up free. Their price would be
$200 a page, but possibly half a page
at $100 might do for Revelatoke. Ho
pointed out that tbe Board of Trade
in Nelson had taken a whole page,
and they hnd about three pages of
private advertising besides, eo that
Nelson was entitled to a page ol
write-up. If the Hevelstoke Council
would order hall a page of advertising
they would try to make up the full
page from the merchants.
Mr. Hume's proposal was heartily
endorsed and the Board recommended
that the Council take $100 worth of
advertising in the Bpecial edition referred to.
HAGGEN TRIAL AT KAMLOOPS
Judge Forin Decides that Case Falls Within
Jnrisdiction of Vale
The case of E. A. Haggen, charged
with obtaining money by false pretences from tbe Mundy Lumber Company, is by the lateBt deciaion to be
heard at Kamloops in the county of
Yale, where the oti'ence is alleged to
have been committed.
When the case came up for hearing
belote Judge Forin in the County
Court here on Thursday morning, W.
A. .Macdonald, K.C.. of Vancouver,
appeared lor the Crown, nsaisted ly
G. S. .McCarter representing the private prosecution, while Messrs. C. E,
Gillnn and VV. I. Biigga appeared for
the nccused.
.luilge Forin in opening aaid that
since last sitting the question ol his
juriad etion in the matter had heen
brought to his notice, and he found
that ou the bondsmen's papers the
accused was bound over to appear for
trial in the county ol Vale, the word
"Kootenay," on the printed form having heen scored out ..nd "Yale" written above it.
Mr. (Milan contended that to bis
knowledge the paper waa made out for
Kootenay when signed by tbe bondsmen, and be believed that tbe bondsmen, Mr. Wells and Mr. Abrahamson
wero uuder the same impression.
Mr. Macdonald quoted authorities
to show that it waB quite within the
power of two justices ol the peace to
remand a ease to another county than
that in which they sat il they thought
lit, since a justice ol the peace was
appointed for the whole province.
Judge Foriu naked that Mr. Foster,
oue of the justices be called so that he
could ascertain whether the change
from Kootenay to Yale had been made
in the papers before or alter it was
signed.
Mr. Foster being called swore positively that he made the change either
before or at the timo ol the signing ol
the paper by the bondsmen, and called
their attention to it. Immediately it waa signed he handed it over
number ol people were interested in it
aud were ready to put capital iuto it.
Some ol the people interested had
gone to look at similar lines in the
States to see how they worked. If the
C.P.R. could he got to assist the project it would make 11. easier.
Mr. Robson  said   he   thought  the   were uot signed for.
to Constable Kington, and did not sec
it again lor several daya afterwaid.
Conatable Kiugton confirmed this
statement, and added that he hud
Btated that he was ready to take the
accused tu Kamloops on the night of
the preliminary hearing  if   the bonds
company would assist, though he
could only apeak informally. It would
certainly be a unique attraction,differ-
ent Irom anything else in Cnnndn,
The line at Mount Koyal, Montreal,
had proved a paying proposition, and
he did uot see why it might not pay
here, He belli veil also that big game
hunting and fiahing ahould prove
attactionB in Revelstoke, Any number ol fishing euthusiaata had asked
bim where would he a good place lo
stop lor fish.
"Hevelstoke,'' said A. H. Allen, and
facts were given bearing this out.
Mr. If.-iis.in said he had t leave
that uight for Field, but would be
hack in about a week.
It wns decided that on Mr. Hobson'b
return the City Council and the Board
of Trade should accompany him in a
body in a trip up Mount Hevelstoke
Votes of thanks were tendered him for
bis iiilormation, and Sir Thos. Shaughnessy is alao to be thanked lor bis
promptness in rending bim.
Mr. Hume, advertising manager for
the Vancouver World, wbb present and
laid belore the Hoard a proposition lor
advertising the city in a special edition they were to issue in connection
With the Heattie Fair. The World
was the only paper with its apecial
building on the Fair grounds, and
every visitor to the building registered
and lelt their name and home address
011 a Imok       When the special edition
was brought uut iu September a copy
Would be sent tO every address on the
book, and Ihey would have at least
30,000   uatiioi,    Their   proposal  was
Mr, Hnggen aaid he had been present, and was rendy to swear that no
mention had been made of the case
being changed to Kamloops.
Fred Frasor, speaking from tho
audience, said 110 change was made
in his nearing.
Mr. Gillan said that Mr. Wells took
the same stand, and he had alao heard
(rom Mr, Abrahamson, and he said no
change from Kootenay to Yalo had
beeu made.
Judge Forin suiil there was a Strange
conlli t of testimony hero. Counsel
for the accused were evidently noting
quite under the Impression that the
case wue to he tried in Kootenay and
lor that reason he had called a special
Bitting of the Court last Wednesday,
but in face of Mr. Foster's direct
statement that he changed it ut tho
time the bond was executed and drew
the attention ol the sureties to it he
must accept the Magistrate's statement. He must take it tbst while
they discussed Kootenay tho Magistrate struck out Kootenay and put in
Yale. It was evident that Mr. (Iillan
nnd Mr, Briggs und the others were
in error as none ol them saw the bond
at the time, lie musl accept, thestrong
statement ol the Magistrate as cun-
elusive and send the case lor trial to
anothor county.
Mr. (iillan then claimed tbo right
(nr trial in Kootenay under Section
077 of the criminal code, hut tho judge
stood hy his position that since two
justices ol the peace hud committed
tho accused for trial in another
county it was beyond his jurisdiction
He offered to adjourn 'the court till
the afternoon In givo Mr. (Iillan a
chance to hunt up any authorities to
the contrary.
Mr. Gillan continued his argument
lor some lime, hut thu judge stouil hy
bis decision and remanded the case to
Kamloops,

The drifting, easy-going method

SLIPSHOD METHODS
There seems tube a slipshod way
of transacting certain public business in Revelstoke that in our opinion culls for some comment. We
reier more particularly now to the
Board ui Police Commissioners, It
was understood that there was to
have been a meeting of this body
last Tuesday evening, but Commissioner Trimble was the only one on
band and nothing cuuld be done.
It is generally known that the verba! resignation of Chief "f Police
Bain has lieen in for a month
or more, but as yet no successor has been appointed, and
tbe Chief i^ kept banging on in nn
unenviable position uncertain
at what day his duties may terminate.
Such a drifting m"thod of conducting public business is to be
deplor'-d in any town, and musl
inevitably tend to laxity and in-

This would give the chief of police
an opportunity to gel hi- report*

people who had any grievance*
against the force or the Hoard a
1 bance to ventilate tbem whi n the
other idi' might also be heard,
We   believe   that  the intention ol

uinls around
little coal city in
whirled il oft" tbe
It wns n town
one day and n smoking desolation
the next, witli n few isolated dwellings in the outskirts left looking
down sadly upon it. The structures of the past years lay in ashes
and wreckage around the feet nf
the builders. It wns enough to
strike disomy into any heart. But
there was true Saxon stuff in those
Fernie men. They looked around
and saw that the mime, the coke
ovens, the land and the river were
still there. The) knew what these
had given in the past, anil while
the smoke wns still ascending from
the ashes the hammer of the builder was heard again.
A year has passed since that day
uf desolation, a day that taught its
lesson by drawing all hearts out in
sympathy   toward   tbe    homeless
people of llie stricken city and
in thai year a new city has arisen.
The trite old allegory of the Phoenix rising with renewed life fnun
its ashes, has lieen illustrated
again. According to the Fernie
Free Ptobs, since tbe day of the
tire the population of Fernie has
increased by over 1,000. Mine that

While Tennyson had no peer in
his superb manipulation of lan-
gunge, lie will be remembered and
honored chiefly because he made it
the vehicle for the conveyance of
noble thoughts. The man himself
with his magnificent presence, his
splendid culture and lofty ideals,
seemed littcd by Nature to be a
lender of men, and even the gruff
Carlyle acknowledged bis taciturn
charm and mastery. It was a
mastery, however, Unit did not
shine in social assemblies. He
lived retired, apart, fighting like
his own King Arthur the war of
Bense with soul and winning his
way ever inwards higher ideals,
lie wrought out his thoughts in
musical language which will wield
its inlluence for gnnd ns long ns
thi- English tongue is spnken on
the earth. A warm lover of his
country, he cuuld vet. see the good
in others. The inun whu addressed

was nn hidebound patriot. lie
hived his own cuuntry ns " the
land wbicli freemen till, which sober
suited Freedom chose," and not
in a spirit of vainglory because of
its conquests nver other nations,
lie was nn ardent loyalist, but bis
loyalty wus infused with a love of
popular liberty, and his chief
praise for Victoria wns that her
throne was "based upon her people's will " lie hated the wrongs
and oppressions of his time, but
warned against rash reforms, and
bade the rulers shun "nuv haste,"
which he styled "half sister of
delay." His verse breathed patriotism of the highest urder. but it
was 11 patriotism consistent witb
popular progress, a patriotism that
turned to  scorn   with   lips   Divine
the fa Iseh i of exl remes."
Jt is safe to -.iy that no preacher
of   the   ... ni leenth  century  had a
greater inlluence on the religious
thought of his period than Tennyson, lie lived in a time when
science was making inroads into
old superstitions and undermining
old beliefs. He was open to the
truth and new light as it came to
him, and he stood always for the
spirit rather than the letter for religion. J Ic was the lirsi preacher
nf the larger hope with his, "yet
we trust that somehow good will
be tbe final goal of ill," or his
faith, "that not one soul shall be
destroyed or oast as rubbish to the
void, when God shall make bis pile
complete." He wrote: "There lives
more faith in honest doubt believe
me than in half the creeds," nnd
yet he warns the doubter to "leave
thou thy sister when sbe prays, her
early heaven, her happy views."
He preached enlightenment with
moderation, be enlarged the hopes
and subdued Ibe fears of thousands
of thoughtful men and women.
()f Tennyson's mastery of the
melody of language there is no
time to speak or quote examples
here. It is acknowledged by all.
But at this tiius when a century
bas passed since its birth, it is well
tbat we should stand fora while in
tbe presence of this great man. In
the pasl the wreath has always
been for lhi warrior's brow, but let
us hope that we are entering on an
age when we shall have laurels to
spni'i' for those wbo have given us
loftier ideals and nobler thoughts.
England had her Alfred the (ireat
of old, but we believe that her
future historians will say that she
had an Alfred still greater in the
nineteenth centnrv.

does not prove entirely
satisfactory in the baking.
DON'T simply buy flour from the dollar anil ccntsiilc of it. Buy high-
quality llour. That means rt'RITY FLOt'R. The first little extra
cost is more than made up by tlie extra immhcr of loaves of bread itiuakes-
hy the superiority of the bread and pastry in sweetness of flavor anil nourishing qualities. Buying Purity Flour is a safe investment. Vou get large
returns, not only on account of Purity's ability to produce more, but because
Purity contains the greater nutriment and the vim of a strong hard wheat
llour. Fund made from Purity Flour gives the consumer health, snap and
force, which cannot be gained from the use of tbe weaker soft wheat flour.

(or a largely increased immigration
from tbe British Isles as a result o'
the B. C. fruit exhibits, and a judicial
settlement of outstanding differences
between tbe Dominion and the province within the next year.
It is stated that 0. H. Nelson, formerly city editor of the Victoria
Times will establish an independent
weekly in Prince Rupert.
The name of the Keremeos Trumpet
has been changed to the Chronicle,
Editor Brown celebrated the first anniversary of tbo establishment ol his
paper with a very creditable illustrated
edition, describing the big ditch which
has been completed by the Keremeos
I.aDd Company.
F, XV. Peters, assistant to tbe second
vice-president of the C.PR. during
his recent visit to Nelsou, stated tbat
it was tbe intention ol his company to
build a first-class tourist hotel on
Kootenay lake at some point between
Nelson and Procter, or at Balfour on
the main lake. The hotel would be
of the same class as those established
on the main line, and should be ready
for occupation next year.
F. XV. Peters, stated while in Nelson
recently, tbat the C.P.R intended to
commence and advertise the resources
of the Kootenay district, and a district
pasBenger Hgency would be re-established in Nelson. He promised alsu
that the nuestioii of settlers rates on
Kooteuay lake and au improved service between Lethbridge and Kootenay
Landing would be considered.
Prince Rupert is to have a fall fair
this year.
It is quite likely that Prince Rupert
will be incorporated as a city next
spring.
Tho C P.R. has surveyors out looking ror a route through the Cci|iiihnl a
pass. The ohjeci is said to be lo
secure an alternative mute connecting
the main line with Okanagan and
Similkaineen. The route would begin
at Ruby Creek, cross the Kraser, and
follow the Coiiuihalla over Hope
mountains, thence across country to
Penticton and aloug Okanagan lake
to the laodiug where it would connect
with the SicamoUB branch.
That is not easy to build bridge
piers that will stand the wash and
scour of the Columbia river is
shown by the fact that during tbe
present week the south t-nd pier of
the C. P. R, bridge over tlie Columbia was almost washed out.
There is no particular need for
alarm in this, aa tlie company has
promptly attended to it and had
il lixed up temporarily with stone
and rock till a new pier can be
built in. So many bridges have
suffered in the swift mountain
streams around Revelstoke during
tbe present year that it seems as if
some special means of defending
the piers will have to be adopted.

Babine range next winter.
New machinery is being put in the
Monarch mine at Field. It is said
that there are 10,000 tons of lead ore
in sight, worth au average value of
$25 to the ton.
The B. C. Copper company has been
organizing its forcas during the past
week, and although a large number ol
men bave heen started to work, the
company ia still in need of more experienced miners. Most of the former
shift bosses and other officials have
taken their old positions. Cars are
being loaded at Mother Lode, but no
shipments had heen made up to a

ever before and expects to see mining
capital look this way from now on.
Another piece of information that Mr.

he claimed, was no mistake as he had

Systematic Hunt Arranged
The Sheep Creek Valley bear with
which Mrs. Gill and her children hud
the encounter a lew weeks since, bus
again been in evidence. A few days
since, Mrs. Beach, in company with a
little girl, was going over the trail,
down the valley, when she was suddenly confronted by the hig she bear,
which stood erect, clawing the air in
front of .Mrs. Beach in a threatening
manner. Mrs. Beach simj ly went to
the ground iu fear and lost consciousness for some minutes. When she
recovered the hear was gone. So was
the child. But both, fortunately, and
owing to tlie bear's solicitude for the
safety of her cubs, escaped,
Tho woman und the child came
upon the bear just us it wus emerging
from the woods. The child, who was
a little ahead of Mrs. Beach, uttered
the moat terrifying screams, and started to run, with the bear after her.
Alter going about fifty feet, the cries
of the cubs, who were still in the
thicket, attracted the attention of the
mother bear, and she gave up the
chuse and turned buck to them. Then
she continued on her journey and loft
the prostrate woman undisturbed. A
systematic hunt for the bear is to be
undertaken liy the men of the valley.

present Opposition leader in the local
house. It is also intimated that Justices Martin and Clement, both good
authorities ou constitutional law may
be removed (rum the Supreme Court
bench and placed iu the new Court.
For the fourtii position the names of
Charles Wilson, D, G. Macdonell,
and J. H. Scnkler have all been mentioned. It seems probable that if Mr.
Wilson were chosen, one at least of
the latter would go on the Supreme
court bench. It is also said that E,
P. Davis, K.C., has been approached
but it is not thought that he would
be willing lo abandon his lucrative
practice lor any position ether than
that of chief justice of the appellate
court.

The body of Harcourt. Poole, a
young man well known in the city,
was found lying in a .stream near

last seen of bim, The body when
found was quite fresh and had apparently ouly been in the water fnr a
short time Dr Hamilton, after inquiry, attributed death to heart
failure, and did uot consider an
inquest necessary. It is thought that
he may have been leaning over the
water and have been seized hy an
attack and fallen iu. lt was quite
■hallow und under normal circumstances he would have  struggled   out.
Poole- parents live at Lacotnbe,

HEAD SHAVING DEARER
Barbers and Doctors Raise Ire of San Francisco's Chinamen
San FRANCISCO, Aug. 1.— Barbers in
Chinatown hnve raised the price for
shaving hoiidsjfrom 25 to 35 cenls and
the Chinese berh doctors have iii-
creasi'il their fees (nun 25 to 50 cents.
The result is almost n revolution in
tlie Celestial quarter, as a Chinese
cannot shave hia own head and every
Chinaman regards herbtaking at regular intervals as a guard against sickness. Several ecoreB of barber shops
are scattertd through Chinatown and
all do a nourishing business, as the
Celestial head must be shaved every
day to keep up proper appearances,
The barbers also clean the ears and
trim the eye brows. The barbers declare that the high prices ol fond aid
the excessive reuls compel tbem to
make an advance in tlie time-honored
price of "two biis." The herb doctors
claim tbat tbey have been underpaid
for years and they cite the lees of the
white doctors aa prool that at 50 ceutB
their prescriptions are very cheap.
The dead walls of Chinatown are
Qaming with r.d poBters today attacking the barbers and doctors for
advancing tlieir prices, but theae
lampoons lave had no effect.

A SEWER CAVE-IN
Two Men Narrowly Escape Death on Thursday
Afternoon
Two workmen narrowly tscaped
death in the city sewer between Sec-
oud and Third street, near Campbell
avenue, on Thursday afternoon. They
were digging in very sandy soil, when
the cribbing suddenly caved in and
the sand poured down on them bury-
iug one of the men, Robertson, lo the
shoulders, while the other man, Isaac
Johnson, was pinned by the le^B
against the woodwork. . T. F. Sinclair
and a large gang of men wero working
near at the time and immediately
rushed to the assistance of the men,
Shortly afterwards Mayor Lindmark
came along and energetically superintended operations till both men
were released, while \V. A. Foo'.e did
good work in the dangerous position
down in the newer.
The sewer had to be partly cribbed
again before the men could go to work
to dig out their hall buried comrades,
and the work ol the rescuers was
itself full of peril aB tbe earth was
liable to cave io and bury them at any
moment. Johnson, who is a Swede
newly on the job, waB lout released
and tainted as lie was being taken out.
He was immediately removed to the
hospital ill the aiulnilani-.e. lt took
about another hour to got Robertson
out. He bore up pluckily in bis
position and never whimpered. He
was quite conscious when removed
and in this condition was also taken
to tlie hospital. They were attended
by Drs. Hamilton and McLean, who
report lhat Johnson's legs wbere be
was pinned between tho timbers nre
somewhat luiiised, while Itobertson
has a fractured hip.
For Robertson especially a great
deal ol sympathy iB lelt, as his injury
may result in permanent lameness,
He was the pipe-layer and an excellent
man at Ins job. He was standing up
to receive a pipe when the cave-in
came Had he been stooping he
would probably have been buried
completely. It is the third time be
has been in accidents of tlie kind,
having In en caught ui CSVe-ini twice
at Kamloops belore.
