CIVIC LAW AND ORDER
Citizens  Can   Aid   Police   in
Establishing Peace
Many complaints have come tu this
ollice regarding tne actions ot certain
dissolute undesirables who drive westward at all hours of the night shouting and making a disgraceful uproar
generally, much to the annoyance of
the residents ol the west portion of
the city. We do not exactly know
why they bring their complaints to us,
tor we do not happen to be running a
detective, or mural returm agency just
now, ur perhaps it is that we are fre-
t|iiently seen chatting to tlie pnlice
and that we will spread the titling
that way, However, the police are
the proper authorities before whom to
lay any complaints, grievances, or
information, and we have no doubt
that if euch complaints can be substantiated the police will take summary meaaures to way lay some ol
these midnight roysterers snd lodge
tbem in the local parasite propagator.
Such a course perhaps would have a
salutory etVect on these shameless,
licentious libertines and eoon help to
diminish this moat, objectionable
feature ol city life. Tbe police are
only too willing to bring the arm of
the law to bear where needed, but the
publio little dream ol what tbe police
do to enforce law and order in the city
when " RevelBtoke sleeps," for the
police are naturally reticent as to their
doings and it would be unjust of the
public to censure the "lorce" for not
being in every street at. once at night.
The police do all in their power to
keep an orderly city, and succeed very
well, though few citizens really give
them any credit lur what they do.
The public can materially assist, the
police in many ways in insuring civic
peace and quietness il they would
only use a little common sense. Small
talk and id'e gossip does more to
damage the harmony of the town,
however, than many ot those things
to which citizens would term police
cares

NEW HOSPITAL WING
Plans for Erection of $16,000
Addition
The hospital board, after much discussion and deliberation on the matter, have decided to commence nego
tiations for the erection of a new wing
for the hospital. The advisability ot
petitioning tor a bylaw to be submitted to the people for the raising of
funds in aid ot the building of a new
wing has been voted down and tbe
board has decided to commence the
work with approximately $10,000 in
sight, including the government grant
which will equal half that sum, and
the balance now in the bank. It is
claimed that this amount of money
will be sufficient tu erect an up-to-
date wing. Contrary to the original
idea of building on to tbe uaat end,
the board has decided to add the new
wing on to the west end in order to
afford shelter and shade during the
hot summer .months. Arrangements
are being made at unce fur the drawing up of plans for the building to
conform with the amount ot money
available and when the deBigu of construction has been approved, the work
will be put in hand at once.
Thia move on the part of the Iiob-
pital board for a new wing will be
welcome news to Revelstoke generally,
as with the expansion ol tbe city the
needs ol the hospital are increased
proportionately. As soon aB the new
plans are out wc Bhall be able more
definitely to go into the nature ot the
construction of the proposed addition;
Millie it to say that the hospital
board will do the very best they can
with the money available and secure
fur RevelBtoke a hospital ot which the
citizens can be justly proud.
April Weather
The following rather alarming
weatber forecast for April has lieen
published by Foster st Washington :
April will not be a good crop weather
month. Up to 12 temperatures will
be about normal and (airly good and
then for 13 days very bad. Last half
ol April will be too cold tor all crops
snd in mid latitudes tender plants
will need protection Irom tbe rarages
ot killing IrostB.
From April 13 to 11, a periud ol 12
daya, crop weather will be radically
bad, on all parte of tbe continent.
First two weeks of April will provide
an early spring with good crop prospects, and the laat half ot the month
will spoil all thee tine proepectB.
Look out fur bad simms and all
kinds ut weather extremes from April
10 tu 21. All the furies uf tho element* will be turned loose,

ROCKY MOUNTAIN PARKS
Supt. Howard Douglas Shows
Excellent Report
We are in receipt ol a copy ol the
annual report of the Kooky Mountain
Parks of Canada by Supt. Howard
Douglas. The report shows an increasing interest taken in it by tourists as evidenced by the big increase of
visitors in llIDH over 111(17; lasl year
numbering 32,201) as against 28,735 in
11)07. There are now six national
parks in the West, all easy ol access,
having a total of 15,650 square miles,
divided as folloiVB:
Si j iiiii cj miles
Rocky Mountain Park ... 4,820
Vnho  Park       2,812
Glacier I'ark    2,801
Huffiiln Park      000
Elk Island   I'ark         (II
Jat>pi;r Park    5,540
Tliejflora and fauna of|the parks are
attracting mure attentiun every year.
The animals in captivity are thriving
The report deals with the Alpine Club,
enlarging un its value in research and
attractions for visitors. Tho Park
revenue is growing steadily, new
places of interest being opened up ard
fresh attract inns being provided, The
value to the Dominion uf these parks
cannot he overestimated.
The baths at the Cave and Busin
continue to grow in popularity, and
the revenue from that source wil!
this year be at least 20 per cent,
over that of any turmer year, and
this has been accomplished notwithstanding the institution of tlie Hut
SpringB baths a few years ngu. In
tpite of the additions lhat have been
made in the number of dressing
rooms aud other accommodations we
arc still unable to accommodate the
swarms of bathers who visit the
baths during the months of July anil
August, and it will be absolutely
necessary to greatly increase the accommodation in the near ftiUire.
The repnrt deals fully with the
progress made in transportation facilities, bridges, trails, etc., Ilora and
fauna of the park, museum attractions, industries, game preservation,
park revenue and climate and contains tine illustrations of scenes round
Bant?, including pictures oi llowers,
etc. The whole report is an excellent
work and very comprehensive and
will surprise tlmse who have not yet
visited Banff as to the wonders ol
Nature to be found there. As n medicinal ami health reanrt Banff ia
unequalled iu any part of the globe,
the baths and spring.' attracting large
numbers of visitors from all uver tbe
world.

"The House of Bondage"
"The   lliiuso  ol   Bondage," whioh
Seymour llberiner has written Ior
Florence Roberts, and which that distinguished player will tiller al the
Opera lluuseon April Uth, is said to
be a remarkably audiioinus play. Noi
that it tillers anything in the leaal
offensive, but lhe boldness ol its een
tral idea, which involves lhe perform
ing ot a vital operation by a prominent

he loves, has attracted unusual attcn
tion and discussion. The piece is o
English authorship and locale, andf

while abounding throughout in brilliant dialogue and absorbing situations

Many person- seem to have an
idea that Alpinists are a small
handful of people who make great
exertions and take great risks fur
no purpose whatever, or for a purpose which \i not at all worth the
troubli    taken,   and   that  when a
brethren are Clubs, in iiinking the country
known as nn attractive one for
visitor?. And wheD it ii> considered
that the scope of tliese European
clubs is limited when compared
with ours, und yet that one of
them, the Austrian Alpine Club,
has a membership of over 70.000,
the future possibilities of the Alpine Club of Canada may be realized. This latter Club is only
three years old, but it has already
done an enormous amount of wurk
in making our mountain playground known, and already has a
membership of over four hundred.
the membership representing almost every civilized country in the
world, The Club, by means of it-
annual camps, enables many to
visit and explore the mountains
who would not otherwise Lo aide to
do so, and every one of these visitors goes away to sound the prah
of this portion of the Dominion I
all his or her friends ami acquaint-

Hub help fur some years yet, or
until such time as tho Club becomes entirely self-supporting. In
addition to this the matter should
also be brought before the (.lovern-
nient uf British Columbia in such
a way as tu cause thein to render
any assistance in their power. The
Canadian I'acilic Railway Company lias recognized the value of
the Club as an advertising medium
from the Start, and has helped it
in many ways, and, in fact, had it
not heen for the long-sighted policy
u! tbe railway company in doing
su il is very doubtful if tha Club
would have been a success, and it
is certain that it would not be the

In Revelstoke we have a valuable
offshoot of the National Club in
the Revelstoke Mountaineering
Club, and everyone who is interested in the advancement of our

one of the objects uf the Club to

of tbe Forestry branch nt the Department of the Interior.
In regard tu the purpose ot the
forest reserves, Mr. Kuechtel writes:—
" The Dominion Fore-t Reserves are
intended to preserve and produce a
perpetual supply of timber for the
people of the prairie, the homesteaders'
needs heing considered ol lirst importance. They are nut intended to
furnish wood for the lumber trade.
Hence the policy ol the Department
is favorable to small mills rather than
to large ones which needs large tracts
ol forest, and manufacture lumber
beyond the needs ol the settlers."
Mr. Knecbtel then gives in detail
the area of the different reserves with
tbe dates of their formation. The
areas are summarized as follows:
Manitoba— (6 reserves) 3575.} square
miles.
Saskatchewan—(Four reserves) 740
square miles.
Alberta—(6 reserves) 11,702 square
miles.
British Columbia — (10 reserves)
2,21)5 square miles.
Grazing will be allowed, under certain restrictions. Good grass Bhould
not be allowed to go to waste, the
Inspector thinks. Besides, grazing
may even be desirable un portions of
tbe reserves, as the cattle will consume tbe grass and peavine, which, il
dried, would be very iutlamable. Besides, tbe cattle, in going to water,
make paths which, narrow as they
are, serve to check any fire which may
cume along tbat way aud give lines
from which a hack-lire may be started.
The lire problem in the West Mr.
Knecbtel shows to hi oue ol special
ditliculty, much more so even thau in
the East.
The reserves are under constant
patrol summer and winter.
Various methods employed to prevent tire, such as the burning of fire
lines and the ploughing of fire guards
are mentioned. Roads through the
reserves and along tlieir boundaries
are also being constructed largely
with this end in view. One hundred
and titty miles of such road were
made last year.
Experiments are being made witb a
view to reforesting areas on the reserves tbat have been denuded by fire;
sowing is favored rather than planting.
The boundaries of tbe reserves are
being marked and timber surveys
conducted on tbem with the object of
ascertaining lhe present amount of
timber and the annual growth.
The species of timber growing on
the reserves, with tbeir average size
and condition, are stated aud an
approximate estimate given ot the
timber on the different reserves. The
estimates total as follows:—
For the Manitoba reserves, 602,033,-
000 board feet of saw-timber and
6,250,000 cords of fuel wood;
For the Saskatchewan reserves,
55,000,000 board feet of saw timber
and 61)0,000 cords of fuel wood;
For the Alberta reserves, 3,402,-
000,000 board feet of saw-timber and
54,220,000 cords of fuel wood;
For the British Columbia reserves,
60O,O00,0J0 board feet of paw timber
and 6,000,000 cords of fuel wood.
The saw-limber cut Irom the reserves during the year ending 31ist
March 1906, totalled about 45 751,325
board leet and the cordwood 105,943
cords.
The regulations lor homesteader's
permits for cutting on the reserves
are given in full. Proposed regulations for portable mills (tbe only kind
to he allowed on tbe reserves) are also
given. Similar regulations have already been imposed on one mill in
Cypress Hills, Alta., reserve this
winter and have appareutly been a
a success.
The uee of the reserves as pleasure
resorts is also noted.
The bulletin is illustrated witb a
number of good cuts.

CONFIRMATION  SERVICE
Lord   Bishop   of the   Diocese
Holds Service at St. Peter's.
The Right Rev. John Hart, Lord
Bishop cf the Dioecfc of Koutenay
and Westminster was the preaeher un
Sunday morning last in St. Peter's.
At the evening service the Bishop
held the urder ul confirmation, laying
his hands on eighteen candidates.
The cungregation waa a large one and
the sacred edifice was taxed to its
utmost seating capacity, chairs having to be placed iu the aisles. The
service wsb choral, the choir making
their entrance with the fine old Processional hymn "Onward Christian
Soldiers." The Biidiop, prior to the
laying on of bauds, preached a senium
devoted to the ordinance nf confirmation, explaining its origin, and the
reasons why the English church had
perpetuated it He went into the
spiritual as well as temporal sides of
the ceremony, pointing out that confirmation was the final initiation into
the church and brings with it privileges which should not be forgotten
He dwelt at length on the meaning of
tbe sacrament and concluded by urging that tbe sanctity ol confirmation
and the giving of the spirit of the
Holy Ghost by the laying on ot
bands must not be lightly considered
upon. Special lessons touching ou
the order of confirmation were read,
the first being from the 35th chapter
of Isaiah showing a beautiful picture
in the spiritual descent of the Holy
Ghost and its peace-giving inlluence.
The second lesson was taken from the
8th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles
verses 14 to 17, telling ol how St.
Peter aud St. Paul and the other
apostles were given the Holy Spirit
by the laying on uf hands. The
Bervice, which was impreBBive throughout, was concluded by the benediction
by His Lordship and the recessional
"PraiBe the Lord" by the choir. The
rectur invited a few special friends into
the Rectory atterwards to meet the
Bishop.
COLUMBIA ENCROACHES
Serious Erosions in Property
Above C.P.R. Bridge
A petition is now being circulated
through the city calling the attention
ol the Minsster of Public Works at
Victoria to the serious erosion being
made by the Crlumbia river on its
east bank just above the C.P.R.
bridge bere, Lots 22 and 23, on tbe
north half of Section 33, Township 23,
Range 2, being particularly aft'ecied.
The river hits made a deep cut into
the bank at that point, and unless
something is done at once that portion of the laud is liable to be swept
away and much valuable property
lost. The lull lorce of the current is
directed against this portion of the
bank and in order to save tlieir homes
and prubably a large part of the land
extending towards the C.P R. track,
tbe residents and property owuers in
that vicinity have circulated the
petition requesting the Provincial
Government to take immediate steps
to remedy the trouble and prevent
any further erosion. Repairs to the
bank now would probably save heavy-
work and expenditure later on as the
erosion increases. The Revelstoke
public should interest themselves iti
this matter ami assist by their support in bringing abuut sume action un
the part ul the Government that will
materially elimiuate auy further damage and loss of property.
The Ledge on the Hike
Tbe Ledge, published at Greenwood
by R. T. Lowery for the past two
years, has ceased publication in that
city, and will next bo issued at Nel-
aon. R. T. Lowery is one of the best
known newspaper men in the west,
having been the founder of no less
than 22 journals at different points,
and having made himself famous a
few yeai-B agu in the publication of
Lowery'm Claim, which wag on two
occasions excluded Irum the Canadian
mails. This is nut the first shift uf
tbe Ledge, however, having bad
Nakusp, nn Arruw lake, as a birthplace; it also made Fernie an erstwhile residence. In ies last issue at
Greenwood, on Thursday, the Ledge
gives tbe lulluwiug ultimatum to ils
readers: "Owing lo the fact that our
business is becoming almost as great,
in Kootenay as in the Boundary, and
one or two other reasons, this is the
last issue of tho Ledge in Greenwood.
Tbe next issue will appear in Nelson,
where it will he published in the
general benefit ul mankind."
Wanted a Warmer Place
A Chinaman waB hanged in Macleod
a few days since for tbe murder of his
brother. The mercury was pretty low,
somewhere botween 50 and 05 bolow
tero when the Chink was put on the
trap. Bel re the trap was sprung the
usual question was asked, "Have yuu
anything to nay ?': To this the chinaman is said to have replied: "Hurry up,
ge cli, tuo cold!" aud with this be was
jerked into eternity,
A LIVELY WEEK
When  Editors  Could  Tell  the
Full Truth
The following despatch from Toron o
appears to ub highly Interesting in ils
originality. We would gladly lake
advantage ol the privilege mentioned
and have a regular gnnd time untrammelled by the letters ut libel proceedings, Such a law us suggi sled in the
dispatch would tend tn unburden the
soul ol the' editor aud enable him to
get off his chest the many items ot
interesting news which would all'ect
all brunches of society in the Oi immunity, especially Kevelstoke. The
despatch says:
"An open season tor editors as a
cure lor some disabilities under whioh
Canadian newspapers sutler In regard
to he law of libel, was advocated by
Provincial Secretary Iliinna at the
annual dinner ot the Canadian Press
association laut night.
" 'As a matter of fact,' Hon. Mr.
II nn mi eaid, 'the Ontario Government
ie going to puss a law which would
be a Bimple remedy lor all their truu-
ble. Kor one week in the y ar they
would have an open season, when editors wuuld say just what they liked
about everybody.'
"Thanksgiving week was suggested
as a suitable date."
What the result ul this liberty would
be is difficult to contemplate, but we
know that that one week would be a
lively one.
ELECTRIC LAMPS
Worn Out Lamps the Cause of
Poor Light
The question ae to how long the
efficiency ot an ordinary electric lamp
will laBt has been frequently discussed
locally. It iB only reasonable to
expect that a lamp must give out sume
time or another, and belore it actually
becumes useless it must nl necessity-
give sume signs nf uld age nnd decay.
It will be seen that an uld lamp dueB
not give the brightness of a uew une
with the same current and this fact
hag caused many citizens tu imagine,
often, that the dimness of their light
iB caused from the power house and
that the generators are not doing
their work. Many of the complaints
regarding dim light are traceable to
people using worn out lamps. Another indication of a lamp having
passed itB state of useful and economical efficiency can be seen, in that the
glass ol the lamp appears to be blackened. People should not condemn
the source of the light before they
ascertain whether the trouble begins
at home. For the benelit of those
who don't know or who have not taken
the truuble to find out, the life of on
average electric lamp is a thousand
hours ur less.

spring millinery upenings of the linns
of Messrs. C. B. Hume & Co. aud
Keid & Young. These two stores this
year, aa usual, have been up'to date in
every respect and the very latest creations in feminine heud gear were
temptingly displayed before the cuvet-
uus eyes of the large nun.ber uf Revelstoke "grattdes dames," Among the
many irresistible mudela shown, there
are styles to suit all heads, the predominating fisture thiB eeaflon, however, being the extreme siae. There
are scores uf hatB ol every imaginable
sine, shape and ell'eet. combinations

must artistic. Daring styles can be
noticed, while others mure modest
these are though nu less dainty.
The upenings frum a commercial
point of view were satisfactory and
both stores repurt excellent business
The display this year bas succeeded

There are more fr.ak stj Ies ordained
for this season than we have ever en-
cnuiitered befure. Sume are like tunnels; others suggest a uual bud, covering half the face and all the hair; limn
there are the Tallica casques, the
Pulish sohapska, the Bagdad turban,
the Moujik, the uld time page's turban
and a pot shaped hat that has no
heritage that can be traced. Yet
these strange and curiuuB fancies aro
