C.P.R. STRIKE
TERMINATES
General Indignation Amongst
Strikers at Terms-Local Men
Send Delegate to Winnipeg
for Information.
The strike of the Canadian Pacific
machinists, which has lasted exactly
two months, has heen settled. The
representatives of the strikers have
wired the department of labor accepting the majority report of the board
of conciliation. The C.P K. iB to use
all reasonable means to lind employment fur the strikers.
Winnipeg, Oct. C.—At strike headquarters the mechanics are fur from
satisfied at the iuws of tbe strike
being at an end. The committee had
to acknowledge that it was a victory
for the company, and there was some
talk of not accepting the terms among
tbe rank and tile of the men, though
there is relief lelt that the contest is
over.
The conditions if settlement, announced yesterday afternoon are:
"Representatives ol men are to wire
labor il. pari nielli at Ottawa thi< morning accepting majority rep irt hoard of
conciliation.
".Strike is to he called i 8' separately
for ea'tern ami western divisions.
"C.P.K, is to use all reasonable
means to lind e nployinent mul io pre
vent discrimination against the men."
Mr. Whyte made a proposition to
this committee similar to thut which
isi now the basis if settlement, but
with this highly im port ant provision:
That the C.P.R. would immediately
re-engage 60 per cent of the strikers,
and would employ tbn oilier 40 per
cent aa rapidly as there were vacancies,
in ordir of seniority.
On Saturday lhe Winnipeg strike
committee, under the leadership if
Bell I lardy agreed to the 0 1', R.
terms—not the terms informally offered a week ngn hy .Mr. Whyte, hut nioie
stringent ones, which leaves the whole
question of employment of strikers to
tbe discretion of C.P.R. oflicials.
The strikers at a meeting yesterday
morning decided to accept the terms,
and will go hack lo work on the
schedule arranged by the hoard of
conciliation, except tlie boiler n akers
who are to receive two cenlg an hour
less. The men also lose their seniority
and pensions.
McVety aud Hardy reoeived severe
call-downs from the strikers at the
meeting yesterday. The strikers Btate
lack of funds caused the breakdown
Vice-president Whyte slate that all
married men will be taken back at
once, but competent mechanics among
the strike-breakers will be retained
The men lnve lost a million dollars in
wages. The company huve dropped a
good deal more than that sum.
After a stormy meeting in Trades
hall at Winnipeg at which both Mc
Vety and Bell Hardy spoke, though
nothing has been learnt here aB to Ihe
trend of addics.es it is believed that
the men expressed their disBatisfactioi.
at the manner in which settlement
came aliout and culled down both McVety and Hardy.
Asked as to what would happen men
brought out frem England, Mr Mc-
Nicnll said that the company would
live up to the terms of its agreement
witli them, adding that most ol them
were engaged for three months.
r LOCAL SITUATION
Considerable dissatisfaction ib fell
locally at the action of tin- head
official* of the strikers' committer
and at the way they huve given in lo
the C.P.K. in almost every point
Since receiving intimation that the
strike wis declared over, tho local
strikers have been at almoat continual session discussing the situation
and cxprc.Hiiig indignation at the way
tha strike has been settled, attributing their defeat lo certain weakkneed
iiiemli'rs in the east who got "cold
feet." The men here claim that they
were prepared to stick it to the finish
Alter a meeting this morning a dele
gate was sent on No. ilii, leaving here
shortly before noon for Winnipeg to
r 'present tlie local strikers in ordar
to attain more definite information ns
to the situation. The delegate is to
r'port on the real facts of the ease und
until this report conies in or some
satisfactory statement tho machinists
will still be on strike. The boiler
makers, however, declare that they
will not give in and will stand pat,
expres-mg indignation at lhe manner
in which they have beon turned down
and state that they will not go buck
on what they have held out for.

ASKING FOR" NEW LAWS
Deputation  Asks  Government
to Change Laws
VANCOUVER. Oct. 7.—A delegation
of members of the B. 0. Timber and
Forestry Chamber of Commerce, combined wilh a number of mountain
mill men, met yesterday in secret ci n
clave with members nl the provincial
government according to private
advices received from Victoria.
Tlie object of the conference is to
obtain th" pledge of the government
tu grant special privileges, hence the
combination ol tbe Chamber of Commerce snd the mountain mill men.
Tbe coast mill men, it is said, were
asked to co operate in asking the
Provincial government to pledge itself
but the coast n en claim that too
many privileges are asked and are
refusing to assist. Furthermore, t >ey
bave asserted that if their opinion on
the matter is asked by the government
their reply will not be favorable to tbe
petitioners
Tbe legislation asked comprises
eight clauses, tbe lirst two clauses
being : " Tbat the present yearly
license be made rene .able uutil the
timber held thereunder is logged off;"
and "that the present annual rental
shall nut exceed, during the whole
term nf the license, .110 west of the
Cascades, and |115 east nl the Cascades."
The two clauses to which the coast
men take strenuous objection are a*
follows 1
" That in the case of default of p -
ment of a license fee nn tlie due date
not less than 12 month, lie allowed to
re 'w ihi. license; that a notice of IK)
days be given before tbe license is
cancelled; that interoit at the rate of
10 per cent, per annum jbe charged on
overdue accounts; and that this provision be made retroactive in the esse
ol all lapses occurring since the passing ol the otdcr-iii-council reserving
vacant lands.
" That inasmuch as there is a constant uncertainty amongst operators
as to tho amount ol tho royalty to be
paid in future for timber, and because
of tbe fact that there is already a
(inference in royalty paid on different
holdings we believe it to be in tbe
interest ol tbe government to fix said
royalty at fill cent* per M during a
term of years, and that the said royalty should at no time exceed the
amount in force ou timber held under
lease."

EXPLORING THE ROCKIES
Large  Block   of   Unsurveyed

Edmonton, Alta., Oct. 7.—Prof. A.
P. Coleman, a noted Canadian geologist, mineralogist and explorer and
professor ol geology iu the University
of Toronto, has returned borne
again, after having spent two
months exploring sections ol tl e
Rocky Mo,muni, west uf Edmonton,
which never before was traversed by a
human being. In ihe course of 12
expedition* in British Columbia Prof.
Coleman lias scale I nearly all tbe
famous peaks iu British Columbia.
Last year he attempted tbe ascent of
Mount Robson, but did not come
within sever,.l thousand leet of tbe
summit on account of unfavorable
weather. The mountain lies un tbe
west slope ol the Rockies, dun west ol
Edmonton and just north of the
('rand Trunk Pacific survey, which
penetrates the mountains through the
Yellow Head Pass. Out of nineteen
days in the mountains, there were
only four days that it did not snow
heavily. The party reached a height
of 11,000 feet, but could not get suit,
able weather to make the final dash,
so were compelled to give it up. Prof.
Coleman experienced a terrible series
of snowstorms. Ilu mapped out several hundred siiuaro miles ol country
hitherto uot appearing on any map
and including the headwaters ot
Moose, (irand Forks and Bmoky rivers
eto. The professor found that the
boundary between Alberta and British
Columbia hod been hitherto too much
to the east, lt should he at tbe
watershed of the (llaciur, where psrt
of lhu (llacier Hows to tho Fraaer
rivur and part to the Peace river in

EXPERIMENTAL FARMS
We  note  witli  interest that the
Cranbrook Herald   if   nutating for
an ex peri ini nut farm in the Kootenay anil   urging lhat the matter lie
brought   to   tin-   attention   of the
government.    The development of
the   Kootenay  country  within re-
oenl years- and it" unlimited possibilities   for   tin-  increase of  fruit
growing uml agriculture, will well
warrant our claims for this institution,    The climate of Un Kootenay
dif.,-1- considerably from  that of
the const district.-   and  the Okanagan where experimental farms nre
in operation  and   we heartily concur with the Hernlil   in their argument lhat the  government should
establish an experimental farm in
the Kootenay since it is necessary
tiiat experiments  he tried so that
those engaged in  agricultural and
horticultural   pursuits   may   have

other   product*-' of   the soil are beet

MODERN   APPLICATION
Time? change a nd wo with lime,
hut nut in everything and the
present system under which we
live is* simply a modern application
of those old kingly (-utilities in
modern form. We now call such
things in their most flagrant forms
by the name of graft. The would-
be political boss emulates the old
kingly lavishness. Indigent followers come to him for rewards
and he puts them on the city or
government pay rolls. The people
against their will have to support
them. The followers, in return,
kiBs the political hand of their bo.cB
and work for him tooth and nail.
Neither under old kings or modem
bosses do the weak get much. The
old tighter and the modern county
heeler get the chief plums. But
all who come for help receive gracious words and promises from the
boss as in the days past from the
king. Ii is expected of a representative that he contribute to c unty
fair^ and church socials and to
everything uviryhudy starts, presumably for ajgood on use.   The old

"Sask-alta" Range has an Automatic Lift Top

of tiring the arm that holds the broiler and

TRUSTEES' CONVENTION
President's Appeal to Gather
at Revelstoke This Fall
The intention ol this is to bring un
appeal tn many Boards that, so (sr
have probably not considered the
aims, the great utility and the real
naeda of the British Columbia Asso
ciation of School trustees. Its work
is oot confined to one feature, nor is
it for any particular locality or condition, but in behalf of all sections,
and equally for rural, municipal and
city sections, that in every case school
administration may be improved and
such inlluence used as will better the
status of our schools. What has
already been achieved will demonstrate
this claim.
Those wbo bave attended are ready
to say the meeting with school in-
ipectors, superintendents and trustees
frooi every part of the province is
part, in itself, of a liberal education
Tbe office of trustee, is a most important one. Trustees' institutes from
tbe fact of tbeir members directing
both the schools and the teachers are
doubly important, aud what school or
district can afford not to be represented yearly at convention? Indeed,
tbe government of the day ia pleased
to regard our Association as its advisory board. Tbe suggestions, then,
tbst we offrr should be tbe ripe
consideration of all boards and unmistakably lor the betterment of
school administration. Is it not apparent there is a duty in attending
tbe institutes of the association as
well as grest gain?
To this end it is hoped the convention to be held at Kevelstoke in
tbe autumn of 1908, will find one or
more representatives from every
accessible school in British Columbia.
Be represented at any cost.
In the second place there is the
matter of contributions. Our only
means of meeting the necessary ex-
pensea is by assistance from the School
Boards. The arrangement decided
upon was: Rural schools, $2; rural
municipal boards, $4 (have same voting 'towers as tecond clai-s citiea):
cities of the third, second and first
clai-'s, respectively, $3, |4 and $6. This
arrangement is no hardship to the
individual, and School Board, are
asked to conliibute as they would to
any object that will advance their
interests. Those wbo have been contributing consider it the best investment in education they yearly make,
and so cheerfully contribute. The
work of the association has been
greatly cramped for lack of funds So
far we have lieen denied some absolute
necessities, and each year have bad a
deficit. Take one matter alone, i.e.,
free text-books; till citizens will allow
a small yearly contribution Irom their
Board is lhe. least that can be ottered
in recognition and appreciation ol
what the Trustees' Association lias at
large expenditure of time, of thought,
of energy, ai.d even of money, secured
for tbem.
This year we want to cover the
deficit and provide stationery; and
deputations to die Government should
not have to pay all tlieir own ripens s
as to date tbey have invariably done
Let us conclude by saving to each
and all Boards that, so far, have not
contributed, to kindly forward at early
convenience their quota to tbe secretary, J. J. Dnugan, Cotton Drive,
Vancouver, B. C.
selves stl'pping ahead and not backwards. Publicity should be tbe keynote of all our endeavors; and here is
where the Board of Ttstle soil Tourist
Association fail. These two bodies
idinuid be more alive 1.1 the situation
and le.ive nothing undone to secure
advertising adequate to the demands
of the city. The Hoard of Trade instead of holding half-hearted disinterested meetings should evolve a scheme
for systematized publicity snd thereby
enthuse the people to shake off (he
lethargy and indifference to our city's
possibilities tbat is at present so char-
actariatic of us all. Our citizeus.there
fore, thia winter should get down to
work, to scheme, plan and devise new
ways and means for advertising Kevelstoke, and mature these plans well so
that aB the season comes in a regular
advertising campaign may be waged
and Rev. I toke pushed forward as she
bas nev t lieen pushed before. We
can back t.p tbe statement with facts
and our people need never be afraid
that money spent in judicious and
elaborate publicity will ever be wasted.

PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN
Revelstoke will Benefit by the
Scheme
Revelstoke bas accomplished more
during the past twelve months than
has been the esse in many previous
years, not only in the manner of oivio
improvements but also in developing
a great and lasting publicity wbioh
will stand her in good stead for all
time.
Tbis is perbsps the lirst year io tbe
history of incorporation that anything
hss been done in a permanent manner
along lines of civio improvement, and
the Revelstoke uf the future is now
laid, In reviewing the amount of
actual wcrk done tor the upbuilding
ol the city it will be realized, even by
the most chronic kicker that a great
deal bas been accomplished. Our
auxiliary power plant is nearly ready,
our cement sidewalks are in a forward
condition, our boulevards are commenced, snd our new fire alarm system
has got beyond tbe preliminary stage.
These are things which appeal to tbe
investor snd capitalist as tangible
proofs of Revelstoke's progress.
Turning to tbe other side of the
question, Revelstoke's publicity at tbe
Calgary Dominion Fair and more recently at our own Fair, have accomplished really more tb,n tbe people
realise sod a reputation has been
gained which will never be lost.
Prosperity therefore, both in tbe ah-
street and concrete, has lollowed us
this year and it is our duty to follow it
up as keenly as we can and make use
of the experience gained, so tbat as
tbs years roll  round  we can find our-
