old custom of ringing a curfew bell in
tbe evening for the purpose of warn
ing all youngsters that it is time ior

at the session ol tl.e counoil. Tl.e proposal was introduced on it report

superabundant amount ul sympathy
from' the aldermen not on that com
mittee, it was linally passed, and tl.e
clerk wai instructed to write to the
police commissioners laying the opinion ol tl.e council on the matter in
question belore them.
The roport Irom the health and
morals committee was as follows:
"Facts have been adduced belore
tl.e committee which show an increasing tendency on the partol young
people to forsake their homes for the
attractions ol tlie public streets, and
other resorts, the committee consider
that the lateness ot tl.e hours kept
eonseque.it upon this practice and
the liability ol being thrown into
questionably company, constitute a
direct menace to the morali of the
community. Your committee affirm
tbeir belief that the parents are the
proper authority to control this tendency, aud that many parentB are
culpably negligent in thii particular,
Your committee recommend that tbe
police commissioners be requested to
enforce the provisions of the curlew
by-law." _

The twentieth century may, perhaps, be distinguished by an abate
ment ol the red tape plague, says the
Calgary Herald, II anything has prevented progress in a hundred different
directioi s throughout Canada and
even down to a comparatively small
city like Kevelstoke, it has been the
artistic, inane Bumbledom and officialism. It is impossible for red tape
and common sense to be joined together, eilher in the Government,
railroads and other corporations, and
while it lusts, [notion and complaint
are bound to continue. In government departments nil over the world
the quality ol good, Bound sense is
taking the placed ancient and useless
working methods, tinged with meaningless etiquette and running only in
the grooves prepared lor it.

ln spite ol the lateness of the spring
and the continued cold weather tbe
tourist* and travelling public are beginning to move and Revelstoke has
even now commenced to received her
ibare. The question of advertising
Revelstoke as a tourist resort has been
mooted in many different ways and
excellent schemes have been planneo
to draw this transient throng into our
midst and so add to the business and
popularity of our city. There is, however, another side to the question
which must be looked at in a business
light, and that is, to provide means ol
socommodation lor our visitors belore
we bring them here. It ii useless I
try and think ol attracting large
crowds ol tourists and other transient
viiitors to Kevelstoke, until we can
lind ncc nf!.- dation I r them. It has
over and over again been proved that
in the busy season tbe hotels are not
capable ol lodging all the arrivals and
in many case! have tbey been forced
to wander all over the town in search
oi accommodation Ior tbe night. This
is not the way to advertise Revelstok.-.
neither is it an incentive for visitors  to get  off   here.    No, the hotels
Doyle Scale to Apply on Coast
in Case of Small Logs.
The amendment to the Timber
Meaiurement Act passed at the recent
session ol the provincial legislature is
an important measure which promises
to have, under certain circumstances,
an effect so far-reaching that the possibilities cannot now well be gauged, according to the Vancouver Province.
The amendment is conditional, as to
the time it becomes effective, upon an
order of the Lieutenant-Governor In
council. Briefly put, the measure legalizes the Doyle scale for logs of all
territory east of the Cascades, and
weBt ol thatrangeol mountains it may
be made to apply to logs of varying
dimensions at the will ol the super-
visor ol scales, but the intention is that
it shall apply only to logs ol comparatively small diameter,
At present the Doyle soale is much
if not practically entirely, in use tc
tlie east of the Cascades, where the
average timber is much less in diameter than that which grows to the west
ol tbat mountain range. On the coast
the British Columbia log scale prevails
Ior the measurement ot timber, and
that scale was some years ago devised
by a commiision of lumbermen ol
whom Andrew lliislam, present supervisor ol log scalers, was .1 prominent
Lumbermen on the coast are ol
course little concerned as to what rule

most needed improvement! in Revelitoke, and although it is apparently-

a special dispensation might bc granted to secure this which would mean
the almost immediate erection ol a

Amalgamation of Two Branches
—Dr. Low Deputy Head
In the debate in the Ottawa House of
Commons on Mr. Templeman'i bill to
create a department ol mines, the
minister explained that there would
lie two branches—the ecological anl
the mines branch, iavi the Ottawa
Free 1'ress. He explained that Mr. A
P. Low, now directors nf the geological survey, would probably be the
deputy head of the department, while
Dr. Hannel would I e the head o[ the
minei branch. An administrative
branch would also be created. The
government lelt that the new department would he to mining what the
department of agriculture wis to
tanning, ll wnuld not add to the
expense ol the country as it waa merely an amalgamation of twu branches.
Mr. G. H. Perley and Mr.Armstrong
pleaded for retention ol tlie geological
survey, which had done such good
work under Logan, Cawson, Bell and
The opposition took objection to the
prop.iial that Mr. Low should be deputy head o! the new department on
the ground tbat it would weaken his
control of the geological survey and
also because it would place him iu the
invidious puition ot being placed in
command of l)r. Hannel, now hit coequal.
Mr. Foster insisted that thi hill
was but a duplication of the bureau uf

The lederal mines department would

Mr. \V. F. Maclean again shotted
his independence by a declaration in
support ot the bill. He thought that
the new department would be a valuable adjunct to the department! ol

The Sunshine is a good, "all
round" furnace. Burns, with equal
facility, either coal or wood. Coke,
too, if you prefer it.
And so perfect is the combustion
of the Sunshine that it extracts
every unit of heat from the fuel.
What's left n the ash-pan is n t
worth sift ne.
Sunshine consumes less fuel, too.
Because Its perfect system of
dampers prevent the escape of the
hot air up (he chimney—compels
it to come out through the registers.
You pay for heating the inside—
not the outside—of your house
when you buy the Sunshine.
If your local dealer does not
handle this most economical
furnace write direct to us for
