Important Matters of Local Moment Discussed—P.O. Site
A meeting of tho Board of Trade
was held uu Tuesday night with good
attendance. President F. B. Lewis
tcok tho chair. Minutes of previous
meeting were read and adopted.
A. H. Allen, manager of the Bunk
of Commerce, was proposed as a member by H. Cunningham Morris, seconded by W. N. Lawrence, and uuanlr
niously elected.
From Hon. F. W. Aylmer, acknowledging receipt of a resolution from
the board re their satisfaction in the
dsm construction in the Columbia at
this point.    Filed.
From H O. Barnbart, Irom Pennsylvania, requesting information re local
and district industries and products.
From W. J. Brandrith, enlisting tbe
assistance of tbe board in an endeavor
to procure a reduction in the freight
and express rates on fruit from B C.
to the prairies and from the Interior
of B. C to the coast.
L. M. Hagar stated that the present
rates were not consistent, citing instances: Sicamous to Winnipeg, 1,113
miles, 75c. to $1; Sicamous to Calgary, 325 miles, 70c. to 85c; Toronto
to Winnipeg, '2,200 miles, 55c. to 66c.
F. Young said that the board would
have to state to the railway commission that tlie rates here were not
C. F. Lindmark pointed aut that in
all probability the rates would be reduced next summer when shipping in
larger quantities would take place.
Moved by R. Cordon, seconded by
K. Tapping, that a committee consisting of Messrs. Lewis, Lindmark,
Hagar aud Lawrence be appointed to
look into this matter and draft a reply
to Mr. Brandrith according to their
finding, aud that this board also
wishes to express sympathy to any
movement in connection with the
loweriug of express aud freight rateB
on fruit and produce.    Carried.
From the Standard of Empire, requesting advertisiug by the board in
tbeir columns.
C. Lindmark suggested that in >ny
scheme for advertising Kevelstoke a
joint action between the board and
the council was best.
E. A. Haggen said that it would be
u good plan to co-operate with the C.
P, R. and the Dominion and Provin
cial Governments.
L. N. Hagar suggested that a cottage should be erected near the depot
containing samples ol products of the
district, discriptive literature, etc.
Others spoke in favor of a publicity
iobeme for the city as money well
The president eaid that tin Board
of Trade should have funds Ior advertising irom the City Council in the
form of an annual gruut or subsidy,
aud it was time the city wake up to
the marvelous possibilities
Moved by Hagar, seconded by
Lindmurk, that a committee be appointed consisting of Messrs. Hagar,
Lindmark, Haggen uud Lewis to look
into the most feasible plans for advertising lhe city and its attractions
and report to lhe hoard at its next
meetiug.    Carried.
K. Tupping suggested, among general business, that a lew lots iu lhe
city should lie reserved for a market
Mr. Liudmnrk replied that there
was land already for that purpose.
E. A. Haggen suggested thut I he
question of freight rates should be
taken up by the hoard with the railroad coinniissiou. The president concurred witb the idea that this wub important since the growth of Kevelstoke
di'iiaiideil better attention in that
direction. Mi. Lindmark said that
if wholesale houses were coming iu
here it was uecessary to have better
rates. Mr. Huggun said that the
grain trallic to tbe coast would be
very important to Revelitoke, which
would be a great junction point from
the Crows' Nest railroad. Revelstoke
would soon become a distributing centre.
Moved by Gordon, seconded by Lindmark, that a committee lie appointed
to enquire into lhe matter of freight
rates lo snd from Kevelstoke as a dis
tributing point. Carried. Messrs.
Lindmark, Liuvreiice, Vuung and be
(mix ware appointed as the committee.
Mr. Hagar pointed out that I. con
vention til fruit growers, buyers, wholesalers, etc., would be held in this city
on February 1 and 2, Iill)'.), and that
since the C. P, R. sud Dominion Express ollicials bad been invited and
ttuuld attend, lhat wai a good time to
discuss height rates.
A resolution was passed that tbe
board ask the city council for a grunt
ot $25 for the purchase of a book case
to hold the reference library belonging
to the board.
The que.tion nf a postollice site was
discussed, the boaid feeling that the
establishment of a government building would encourage the construction
of other large buildingB in the vicinity.
Moved by Haggen, seconded by
Hagar, thst the board recommends
lhat the oiiy council be asked to take
a plcbeecili . to of the people at the
civic election in January, 1909, on the
following suggested situe for a postollice and government building, viz: N.
W.corner of Fiist street and Government roud, and First street and Camp-
boll avenue, (opposite the Club) Carried. A copy ol the resolution w»b
sent to the city council.
The matter of the C.T. P. construction route was generally discussed,
Mr. Haggen pointing out that something could be done to save the government subsidy lor a tram rouud
Death Rapids.   '
Tbe president staled that the trum
would go in if the construction supplies were shipped via Revelstoke.
Mr. Haggen in reply to Mr. llagar's
suggestion, that intending settlers
should be made acquainted with the
amount of lauds available for settlement in tne district, eaid, very soon
the government would issue reports
of the recent surveys in this respect,
and the communication from outside
parties requesting information regarding the district, were disposed ol and
tbe meeting terminated.
Revelstoke Board of Trade Will
Take Up Question
The Revelstoke Boatd of Trade have
taken up the question again of freight
rates in respect to Revelstoke, and a
committee has been appointed to look
into same and report to lho board ub
early as possible, so that a petition
can be placed before the railway commission when visiting here. The
growth of Kevelstoke demands better
attention in this direction aud more
satisiac.ory rates would encourage the
advent of wholesale distributing
houses, as rightly pointed out at the
board of trade meeting. Kevelstoke
has every promise of being a most im-
poitaut junction and distributing
centre iu the near future and deserves
betler consideration than it has had
in the past.
The Victoria Colonist, in regard to
freight rates, says: "Nelson merchants
have reached a satisfactory agreement
with the C. 1'. Tl. over height rules
on goods to and from that territory.
It is stated tbat this will mean the.
saving of many thousands of dollars
to merchants and consumers. This
once again establishes the old maxim:
•ll you don't get what you want, ask
for it,' but it also shows that the
C.inadiun l'ucilic Railway is pursuing
a very geneious policy just now iu reaped to matters affecting the people
uf this province."
Surely if Nelson merchants can
secure their ends, Kevelstoke merchants can likewise gain consideration
ii i hey arc ununiinoiis iu deciding
what they want.
Charming   Operetta  by   Local
Young People.
A large audience tilled the Opera
House on Thursday night to witness
tho production of, " Tabasco Land,"
a Mexican operetta staged by the
Young People's Cleo Club. The caste
and chorus consisted of forty-live
promising young Thespians, who
faced the footlights us fearlessly as
the most, tried knight of the stage.
The piece was under tlie directiuu
of Miss M. E. Creighton, who has been
hard nt work for the past month or so
training the yuiing people. Tho programme consisted of a series uf solos
uiiei persed witli chorus work and step
dancing, this latter being daintily
executed, the young Bctors faithfully
carrying out the principles of tlieir
training. The Binging, on tbo whole,
was veiy creditable, some of the soloists having pleasing voices, showing
much promise. The comic element
was excellently carried out, the Indian
war dance being a very amusing
feature,and lhe chorus singing good
and blight. A chief feature of the
performance wus tbe magnificent display of costumes, which were really
excellent, each girl being charmingly
attired in Mexican, Chilauo and Spanish Btyle.
There was nothing to mar n most
pleasing exhibition, except the fict
that the performers wore not in every
case sure of themselves ou the stage,
being in many ways undecided a. to
what to do,
Much credit is due Miss Creighton
who has had considerable work in
training such a largo number of young
people, and the public cannot expect
too much stage precision on the part
of such young amateurs. lt is to he
hoped that the success gained bo far
by the Revelatoke Young People's
Glee Club will encourage them to
still further cll'orts, and the performance on Thursday evening cortaiuly
showed the talent lying dormant in
the youth of our cily.

gathers pumpkins is the man who
plows ull day, and the man who

the man who blames the editor because it doesn't work. The man who
gets the business has a long and a
steady pull, and keeps his trade and

Sir,—In looking over the Revelstoke
papers we noticed some peculiar antics
of the Board of Trade and Trade and
Labor Council. The Trade and Labor
Council are reported as desiring the
ward system This will swamp the
west end vote and have a tendency to
take away the representatives from
Wart'. 3 and deprive that ward of any
voice in civic affairs. Ward 3 contributes many tens of thousands of
dollars to the civic treasury annually
and received for the enormous revenue
collected by tho city last your a dozen
second-hand chairs for the lire hall, n
"idewa'.k 220 feet long and a few lumps
to ligbt the streets.
Now it appears the Trade and Labor
Council want to take away  our  fran-

publicly stated, taxation without
re) resentation in a pernicious principle
and ahould not ■ btain recognition.
The Board of Trade is reported as
having passed a resolution asking that
a plebiscite be taken at the eivio elections to orteiminr whether the post-
office Bite be •elected opposite Revel-
stoke's Chi on the corner of Campbell avonue and First stroot, or the
northwest oornor of First street and
Government road. Has the Dominion
Government asked the Board ol Trad,
to take any ac.tioo it may soe fit to
select a site for the new poitnfficc?
Does the Board of Trade of Kevelstoke
represent the views ol tho majority of
tbo citizens?
How many atiendod the meeting
when that resolution was passed. II
tbe rumor ia true that 99,000 is tho
prico asked for the bts on tbe cornor
of Campbell avoruo and First stroot, is
it not u lurge order to put up to the
government  for a poitotlioe in Revel
Btoke, considering the revenue derived
frum the town. How many lots havo
changed bauds iu that locality for the
price asked for those lots?
The continued agitation, and controversy over tbo post office site lias
retarded the construction of a poat
office for a number of years and if continued may deprive Revelstoke of a
government building for years if the
mutter is not loft in abeyance. I
would suggest the government representative of public works in this province is quite capable of deciding the
question in the interest of the city ss
a whole.

The Organisation  and History
of Revelstoke's Musicians
It is now \2 years ago thnt 11 number of Revelstoke citizeus recognised
the need of music to Ibe community
and resolved to organise a band. The
name of tliese public spirited men who
thus became tbe founders ol what is
today the Revelstoke Independent
Band, are duly inscribed in the records
of the band, being as follows: C. Holten, T. Downs, J. Edwards, J. A.Stone,
F. Vandal], H. N, Coursier, J. U. Barber, Abrahamson Bros., F li. Wells,
J, R. Hull & Co, B. R. Campbell, .1.
1). Graham, R. Gordon, F. McCarty,
R. S. Wilson, C. Ii. Hume, antl
Bourne Bros. It is pleasant in passing, to retlect tint must of the above
named iue stili ol Revelstoke, and to
know tbst time has dealt kindly witli
tb m.
Tlie money subscribed by tliese
citizens was used to purchase instruments fir the embryo musicians, and
the use of a room in the old school
house (situate whsrc the large brick
school building now stands), was given
paid   by   receipts Irom engagements,
-iippleineuted   by    uccasionul   grants
J bum   tbe city   councils, which bodies,
to their credit  be it said, have invariably encouraged  city band music.    It
; is proper here tu observe that lhe band
1 always tries to   remember what is due
Irum itself in   return   for  public support und by  its gratuitous services for
charitable  and  religous undertakings
each   year,    materially   helps   along
what   is   good   and  best in the daily
life of the oity.
It is dillicult in a short article to do
justice to those whose length of service in the band and musical ability
entitles tbem to special notice, but
may name, Mr. R (lordon, lion, pres.;
R. Edwards, pres. and manager; R. II.
Sawyer, leader; R, Armstrong, secy.-
inns.; A. Hillier, II. Sawyer, being
some ul the men who fnr years have
given time, talent und money to promote the development of gocd hand
music for Revelstoke. The band numbers 10 membeis, and the uniform
worn—n dark blue with black braid
trimmings, is both neat and smart.
In short, without incurring the risk
ul being considered anyways hasty, it
mny   be claimed that the R.I.B. wil]
the band in order to curry on their
practices. While ou tbis strain it
might be ss well to mention that alter
leaving the old school building, the
next quarters were found in Revelstoke's first skating rink, through the
kindness of W Cowan, after this to a
room in the Cordou Block, then Irom
there tu their present room, which
tbey havo occupied for a period of at
least * years.
The first band loader was Mr. P.
Webb, wbo had for a lung period been
a member of a military band in England, previous to comiug to Revelstoke. and most of tbe members,
through bis untiring efforts, received
tbe foundation fur a musical education. From this time until now the
band has continued to lahor in the
held of musical effort, and it is one
of the oldest institutions in the city
today. More often than may be sup
posed, has its permanency depended
upon tbe faithfulness of the few, us in
tbo earlier years, tbe membership was
somewhat of an itinerant description.
The industrial facilities of the city at
tba' period not offering mveh chance
compare   favorably   with any similar
organization in B.C.
With regard to the most important
particular—tbe quality of the playing
—the tiles of the secretary contain the
unsolicited written testimony from
managers of public entertainments in
other towns and coast cities, who have
hired the services of the band, and in
all cases do these gentlemen express
their unqualified satisfaction with the
music supplied and with the manner
in which tbo band fulfills its engagements. The cut shown is of the band
that played at the Dominion Fair,
Sew Westminster.
The social side of tbe band is well
looked after, and there arc generally
some, wbo, when not otherwise engaged, prefer to assemble for a social
intercourse round the stove in the old
band room. It is dillicult to suppress
tbe hfgb spirits uf youth and the
sounds of boisterous merriment issu
ing from the band room, sdoubtlcs
conveys a mild shock to the staid and
proper citizen | assing on his homeward way. I f he is wise he reflects
that   the   boys   might   be   in   worse

in tho coming election as a school
trustee. Next year will probably see
considerable wo. k in connection witb
schools commencrd and some carried
out, and were Mr. Ford electe 1 as a
member of the board, his knowledge
of C'liistructinnal work, building, etc.,
would be very valuable iu carrying
out the plans and erection of a new
sobool building, the need of which is
making itself strongly felt. H. N.
Coursier is a'so retiring and statrs
that be will not again offer himself as
a candidate, although his excclle' t
record in pust terms, it would be useful in still furl Iiei 1 ng the iusterests of
the Fchiols. T. W. Bradshaw and J.
J. Porter remain with tlie board. W.
A. Foote and A. Hobson have signified tlieir intention of entering the
contest, while R. Tapping is openly
in lhe running. A number uf uthcis
are allowing their 'names lo bo mentioned, but the contest will probably
simmer down beforo the day ol nomination.
Society Novelty
The latest in Revelstoke society
functions is a white elephant party,
one ol those new innovations iu social
amusements being beld recently. The
idea is that each lady guest must
bring something that she could not
find any use for and yet too useful to
throw away. The party, we learn,
would have been a great success but
for an unlocked for development,
which practically broke it up. Seven
oui of the twelve women brought
tbeir husbands!

estimate the good that lias been done
to tlmse young men, whu coming to
the town, perhaps   as   strangers, and
leoorlfig employment, would, through
joining the band, lind recreation
among its members and tilso cultivate
the musical talent within them.
It is much to the credit ol llevelstnke that during the past lil years it
has possessed in the Revelstoke Independent Band, what is practically a
school ol music, where n young man
might attend and under actpalile,
leader, and under .1 capable leader,
receive n musical education, and this
at no monetary cost to blmsell what-'
soever, as tlie expenses of the baud are!

The recent formation ol the Old

I old they np more loved,/ perhaps—
Tho' they loved in their chosen way—v	
The Christmas creeds and the Christmas deeds^jgj
Than we ^ho l\ye today.
But the world was far more childlike then,
While we have wiser grown;
And rather scorn their quaint beliefs
In favor of our own.
' ^_r 'i.
One fact they held as true as faith:
At the time of the Saviour's birth
The season moved in the sea, the
And the smallest things of^e__rth.
The beasts of the field wer^fed to speak,
The stones had tongj_.es for words-
Trees, grasses, bloomsXvere eloquent,
And speech was with the birds.
Scarce was a beastf in all the field
Or bird in all /the wood;
Those simple folk at Christmas time
Made not a theme of good.
And when the humble meal was done,
Or humbler gifts were sped,
They told of thAm strange-fancied tales,
And what they\did and said.
All simple stories mr^nly meant
To teach the noble part,
That sympathy and pity's due
Should hold in every he*_u;t.
And one ran thus:  "Long years ago
The robin at rhe door
Upon his breast in winter days
No shield of crimson wore.
'«_*!» '
.'   .,
• .     tt,.
^But as time passed when Christmas dawned
The bird in love's good will
And chlhsjty, with cooling water's store
^ould _U1 its tiny bill.
Then, flying\p that trying place—
To purgatory—where
Soukxhicsted in the flames, would leave
^^fiedropof water there."
Aye, even more these untaught folk believed:
>•_? ti  sajd jkg robin came
Solent and z _ alous in his task
It needed not the flame.
And scorched, even there where it had sought
To make its presence blest,
Has since befen scarred—sweet Mercy's badge—
With rera upon the breast.
Th-v/lesson is not in the deed
much as in the will,
nd while the world shall run its round
Must hold its value still.
The smaller works of charity
Of sacrifice and pain,
With no thought save of God and love,
Are those of richest gain.
