KOOTENAY  INDIGNANT
Rev. H. S. Magee said to Have
Slandered People in Interview
Nelson, April 7.—Great indignation is felt here over an interview in
the Toronto Globe of March 28 with
Rev. H. 8. Magee, associate secretary
of Temperance and Moral Reform for
the Methodist church. Mr. Magee,
who paid a visit here a fortningbt ago,
says in the interview tbat "the dark
spot in BritishColunibio is the Koote-
ensys. There in the Kootenay country tbe labor conditions tend to make
the people Godless and irreligious.
The extremes of atheistic, anarchistic
and socialistic are rampant, and the
brothel and tbe whisky shop go together to degrade men." In an editorial commenting on Mr. Magee's
statement, the Daily News says in
part: "Rev H. S. Magee should be
expelled from bis present position and
promoted to the combined position of
president and secretary of tbe Ananias
olub. A more dastardly libel has
never been uttered regarding the
Kootenays, and that such vile statements should emanate Irom a man
travelling in tbe guise of a minister of
religion and received as such witb
respect and hospitality in decent communities, is simply outrageous. If
there be any branch of this reform
organisation in Nelson, or in any
other part of the Kootenays, immediate steps should be taken to have this
slanderer called down and expelled
from the organization."
BANK OF VANCOUVER
Shares  Eagerly Taken Up —
Books Opened.
Vancouver, April 7.—The activity
of tbe provisional offices of the Bank
of Vanoouver yesterday looked much
like that of an actual banking business which, as the financial worid
knows, the Banking Act will not
permit until half of the oapital i is
subscribed and the necesssry deposit
is made witb tbe Treasury Board or
Department of Finanoe at Ottawa.
The aotivity waa due to tbe opening yesterday of the bank's subscription books. The eagerness to secure
•hare* in this new and only "home"
bank in British Columbia with its
head office here is unprecedented in
the West, if not in tbe banking history of Canada.^
Although tbe bank's subscription
books were formally opened they show
a subscription of $280,000 worth of
shares of the $3,000,000 which under
the act it is necessary to have subscribed, $250,000 of which must be
deposited st Ottawa for the period
required by the act before the bank iB
permitted to receive tbe depositor's
first dollar.
EQUIP EVERY HOSPITAL
Government Requires Accom
modation for Consumptives
Victoria, April 7.—An order-in
council bas been passed making it
compulsory on hospitals receiving
government aid to provide scconimo-
dation for cases of tuberculosis in
advanced stages.
Hon. H. E. Young, in explaining
this new order, bas stated tbat in future all hospitals drawing sid from the
government would have to provide the
means for giving accommodation and
treatment to advanced stages of tuber
culosis. Tbe sanatorium at Tranquille
was intended only for incipient cases.
There it wss boped tbat pstients
would be cured.
ENGLAND VS. SCOTLAND

the enclosurs and 40 persons were
injured by tbe crush. During the
progress of tbe gsme, stones were

BOLD BANK ROBBERS
Vain Attempt to Open Imperial
Bank Safe.
St, Catherines, April'7.— V determined effort was msde early tbis
morning by three or four men to rob a
branch of the Imperial Bank of Canada
at St. Davies, a village near here.
Several strsngers came to tho village
early last night and were seen around
town for several hours. Then they
stole a couple of horses at Doyles
hotel, and breaking open a blacksmith
shop, stole tools with which they pried
open the front door of the Imperial
Bank. While two men wiih revolvers
stood on guard the other* blew open
the vault. The bank clerk, named
Hamilton, attracted by the explosion,
came up to see what was the matter.
He attacked tbe robbers with stones.
They returned bis charges with revolvers. Tbe noise of tbe shooting awoke
the village and everybody was soon
astir.
Tbe robbers were determined, bow
ever, snd held off the populace, who
being unarmed, stood under cover.
When, however, the robbers failed to
open tbe inner door of tbe vault they
gave up in despsir and drove off. It
was found afterwards that the inner
door of tbe vault was so badly wrecked
tbat it could be pulled out. Behind
it was $3000.
RETURN OF SPRING
The  Brightest Season of the
Year.
Revelstoke is onoe more assuming
her normal condition and is prepsring
for the annual spring clean up, which
entails more or less worry, anxiety and
grumbling on the part of every member of tbe household. Tbis is a season
when all men turn over a new leaf, at
least, make tbat resolution to conduct
themselves in the way they should
walk. Youthful spring is once more
blowing its balmy breath over the
great west and our thoughts are turning to love and green onions. The
birds are commencing to sing in front
of the houses, while away in the rear
the increasing cackle of the bens indicates a fall in the price of eggs. The
ooal men are wearing tbeir visages
draped in frowns, while the chaps with
the ice for sale already grin aa they
watch the thermometer making for
the high seats. The married men are
already cutting out their drinks in
order that their wives can buy new
hats. The little boys are picking out
tbe best places for swimming and
bathing, and on every side the trees
and bushes show signs of the "warin'
o' the green." The spring poet has
come down with the rain and is burning the midnight electric in order to
get the thousand thoughts that burn
his brain down ou paper ere they fade
away forever and leave the world in
partial darkness. All these signs and
many more indicate the joyous spring
has pushed old winter over tbe damp
oblivion and is once again covering
tbe face of nature with flowers, and
filling the ozone with the sweet songs
that emanate Irom the throats ol
winged creatures fresh from tbe training school of the Creator.
It ie a universal wish that the world
would stand still snd give us eternal
May. But it cannot unless we discover some way to put a brake upon
the sun. Let Revelstoke shake off
tbe pessimism that has enthralled
her. this winter and rise on the stepping stones of her dead self to higher
things. Let us make use of our op-
poitunities and take every advantage
of them tbis yesr, and tbe results will
not be slow to follow. '   '
NEW YORK'S EASTER
Millions Disbursed for Bonnets,
Spring Raiment and Flower
Easter—Chiistiau Easter—may or
may not be of pagan origin, but certain it is that as now celebrated it has
some pagan characteristics. Lavish
display, which means lavish expenditure of money, is tbe most striking
feature ot the festival in New York
People who have never thought of tbi.
phase of Easter may be surprised to
hear that the raetropplis spends $9,-
000,000 at this seas.n fur cloth.s,
flowers, presents and church contributions. And of course New York is not
alone; it only leads in the "spring
opening" business. Here is New York's
Easter bill:
The Easter bonnet $3,000,000
Easter gowns 2,750,000
Men's apparel  1,000,000
For dressing the children...     600,000
Flowers     1,500,000
Candy and fancy boxes     260,000
Church contributions     260,000
Asquith Premier Elect
Biarritz, April 7—Sir Henry Camp-
bell-Bsnnermsn, tbe British Prime
Minister, has resigned. Herbert Henry Asquith, Chancellor of the Exchequer, bss been summoned here (or s
oonferonoe with King Edward.
A speoial courier arrived here today
with the letter of resignation from Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman. It was
announced later that King Edwsrd
bsd socepted tbe Premier's reslgnstion
snd had summoned Herbert H. Asquith to come at once to Biarritz. It
is the understanding here tbat the
Premiership will be offered by the
King to Mr. Asquitb.
Hardware Food
Seattle, Wash., April 7.—Henry
Hsrrisoo has had removed Irom the
innermost recesses of bis system 11
blsdes, five lath nails, six small screws
three tacks and sundry other bits of
bsrdware incidentally. When Harrison summoned the surgeon he
wss suffering from appendicitis. Harrison makes his living on the vaudeville oirouits, swallowing glass, knife
blsdes, horseshoo nails and other
artioles. He is 38 years old and has
been following his vocation for 20
years,
Total $9,260,000
These figures sre based upon careful
estimates of a large number of the
leading milliners, dressmakers, tailors,
haberdashers, florists and other storekeepers. The figures probably do not
represent the actual proportions of the
average New Yorker's material and
spiritusl in erests, but there is the
bald fact—out of nine millions spent
in connection with the observance ol
Easter the church gets a thirty
seventh part.—Washington Star.
Canadian Journalists
London, April 7.—Mr. Kipling discourses on the Csnadian journalist in
the Morning Post this week. He says
that in Canada It is always delighful
to meet reporters, for tbey are men
wbo are interested in their land, with
the keen unselfish interest one finds
in young house surgeons or civilians.
One felt at every turn oi tbe quick
sentences that one wns dealing witb
made and trained players ol the game,
balanced men who believed that the
decencies were not to be disregsrded,
confidence not to be violated, and
honor not to be mocked.
Yet, while the men's talk was so
good and new, their written word
seemed to be cast in conventional
moulds. One hated to think of tbese
splendid people using second-class
words to express first-class emotions,

V\LDNE8DAY, APRIL 8, 1908
WITH A CI/KAR  CONSCIENCE
Now that the spring is upon  us,
the general hope tbat fills the mind
of every citiien, is that  things will
improve and that   the   wheels   of
commerce wi 11 turn  more swiftly.
Although we feel the pinch of hard
linn-, yet the very fact of a Berious
reverse in our business   and   commercial life, will   do   considerable
material    good   in   teaching   the
lesson of economy, not  necessarily
in every tihace of life,  but simply
ss an iiivi.--tn.eiit against hard times
and  financial  stringency  such  as
have weighed heavily upon us this
winter.     In taking a retrospective
view of the past   few   months,   we
find that in spite ot the commercial
depression all over Canada,  Kevelstoke hss sailed   along,   her   head
well ubove water, her people  practicing thai give and take   principle
which in in   reality   the   backbone
of theiuoce*. and consolidation  of
our growing  western   cities.     The
more money sjient in our common
ity the lielter for all concerned. No
mail order house   hi-lp.-d   to  huild
our schools or  o|ien   up  our   city
streets,     No mail order house ever
took you by   the  hand   when   you
were in distress  and   told   you   to
let   that   little   account   go  until
alter hard times   were   over.      No
mail   order   house   over   sold you
goods   and   spent every cent of its
profits right hack in the community.   No mail order Utilise  rejoiced
with   you   when you were glad or
spoke encouraging words, or stood
beside the   grave   with   uncovered
heads when   your   children   died.
Tbe mail order house is after the.
hands on will be jerked out of Revelstoke. It may bear the semblance
on its face of friendship, but no
human heart beats under its cloak
of hypocrisy. Sentiment of it is
unknown. It is cold and bloodless
as a corpse. All these houpes put
together would not increase the
value of your property one cent.
They are parasite*? to whom life is
only poKaible as long as they can
suck the blond out of little far awny
communities to tho upbuilding of
which they contribute nothing.
They create no lcsal market for the
products yon have for sale, They
have no property in your district
which can be assessed to help bear
your burden of taxation. It ie,
however, an unfortunate fact, showing the absence of any sense of
right and justice, that many people
seem to regard their local stores as
though they were established
merely for accommodation. When
these people have cash to spend it
goes to the catalogue houses, but
when times are dull and they are
out of work, what do they do ?
Do they write to the mail order
houses and ask for a little time for
a favor, If they do, they fail to
get it. How many houses and
properties have been paid for by
your local merchants advancing
both the goods necessary to keep
life in the body and casli to meet
that dreaded interest on mortgage
or "bluo paper." When you are
in need and deserve it your home
merchant will help you out. He
helps to keep up the schools and
churches. He contributes his share
lor roads, etc. When there is need
for special funds he usually heads
the list. True Citizenship is not all
in rallying around the national
flag of our country and singing God
Save the King or the Maple Leaf
for Ever.
CANADA'S DEBT TO BRITAIN.
There are many Canadians who
think and talk so much of Great
Britain's duty to Canada that they
overlook Canada's duty to Great
Britain. It is well to bear in mind
that the most hopeless sort of Little Englander, who thinks that the
self-governing colonies are a nuisance, does actually pay his share
year by year towards the maintenance of the British navy, which is
the only security not only of the
existence of the empire, but also of
the preservation of Canadian liberties.—Cauada.
Kipling and Canadian Girl
In the second of his series of "Letters to the Family," describing bis
recent tour of Canada in Collier'*
Weekly, Rudyard Kipling tells of running across a Canadian girl that made
him pause and ponder. He descril.es
tbe incident as follow*:
"Whioh reminds we lhat the other
day   I   saw   the   lady   hereelf. in tbe
NETTED $150,000.
Big String of Charges Made
Against Insurance Man.
New York, April 3.—The arrest in

aBBiu.int superintendent of the Prudential Life Insurance Co., in CohoeB,
who is alleged to have arranged 14
bogus fu.ierals in order to swii.dlc tin
company, has been followtd by an
invs s'igtttion which has resulted in

Wholesale forgeries including the

Conducting bogus funerals.
Stealing letters from the mails.
Embezzlement.
Grand laroeny.
Violations of the insurance law.

Electrolytic Process
T. Scott Anderson writes to the
Miner Irom Sheffield, Eng., calling
attention to the fact that His Majesty's Indian Government has just
awarded him a gold medal and diploma for services rendered to it in
the electrical reduction of iron ore
and its conversion to steel. Tbe
government he says is now considering a large project for the utilization
of its ore deposits, in which scheme
electrical smelting will play an important part. Mr, Anderson is also
engaged in other iron projects for tbe
Russian government, and also for New
Zealand. He lias devoted some years
to the electro-metallurgical industry,
more particularly to iron and copper
In copper he states that he and associates have plants producing pure
electrolytic   copper   direct    from ore,

This is the same Beggar Prince com
pany that crested suoh a stir in the

that numerous reasons have been advanced why the performances have
been so wi 11 uitc ded and crltias have

endeavored to discover the csuse of
their popularity. Tbe real secret of
their success, however, is duo to the

And the Beggar I'rince Co. which will
be presented here is one requiring
elaborate costuming and it. is said tbe
requirements have been tilled to lhe

Mr. C. M. Edwards of Cranbrook hss
also advised the reservation of a portion of this territory and additional
mileage io the region farther north
and extending west as far as the con-
fludece of tbe Columbia and White
rivers, In this mountainous country
moose, caribou and elk roam in vast
numbers, while grizzlies, sheep and
goats are also very plentiful. A well
known hunter declared that it contains more moose than all the rest of
the Dominion.
After the reserve is defined stringent
regulstions for the perpetual protection of the big game will be' enforced.
If, the experience in the Yellowstone
Park ie duplicated the animals will become tame when Ibey realize that they
will not be molested. It is an everyday sight in the American reservation
to see vast herds of deer along the
main driveways traversed hy the
thousands of people who visit the park
every summer, So tame have the
bears become tbat they daily visit the
big hotels to partake of a meal from
the scrapheaps thrown out of the
kitchens.
Mr. Williams is confident that the
Canadian reserve will in time become
likewise a great resort for tourists who
will also be enabled to enjoy good
shooting in the adjscent district where
the game will only be protected during the closo season.
What is a Box Car?
The following from an exchange
may be of interest: "A box car belongs to tbe fowl family. During the
spring and summer months it can be
found in nearly every part of tbe
country, its favorite haunts being
railroad tracks, end it is easy to capture. In the autumn, however, like
certain other fowls, it goes into hibernation or flies to other climes. Scattered instances are known where specimens aro captured during the autumn
months. A Issbo or a well greased
switch orew is sometimes used in mar-
lug the box car, but main strength is
the best weapon, lu any case the
hunter must be very wary as any
noise like the fluttering of a way bill
will make the quarry disappear. Some
railways own large Hocks of domesti-
oated box cars, but they are carefully
guarded dm ing thu closed aeasnn.
Tbe wild box car, when caught and
fairly well loaded, becomes perfectly
stationary."
C. P. R. WAGES
Announcement Regarding Cancellation of Schedules.
Vancouver, April 7 —According to
sn official explanation given out in
Winnipeg yesterday by the C. P. R.
authorities at tbat point, and communicated by wire to Mr. F. F. But-
teed, general superintendent of the
Pacific division, it is not the intention
of the company to reduce the maximum rate of wages paid any of the
shopmen at points west of Fort William. As announced in The Province
Thursday, the C. P. R. bas served
notice on all the union west of Fort
William with which it has wage agreements tbat they will be cancelled on
A ril 30, which is the ususl thirty
days' notice requiied.
In the Winnipeg announcement of
yesterday the C. P. R. officials further
declared that it is not the intention
of the company to. disturb the rules
affecting a day's labor or the rules
governing payment for overtime.
The executive officials of the Vancouver unions affected are now in telegraph communication with their headquarters officials, and witb tbeir representatives in Winnipeg. The Vancouver union men are as yet entirely
in the dark as to tbe reasons for the
move of the railway company, but they
are inclined to look upon it an a step
preparatory lo a reduction in wages of
all shopmen on the western lines. Iu
all probability representatives of the
various unions in Vancouver and ut
other British Columbia points will
go to Winnipeg at an early date to
wait upon railway ollicial* and learn
the company's exact intentions.
At present the local shops of the
C. P. R. are not working full time,
and employees declare that as the cost
of living here is now greater, if anything, than it waB at the time the last
schedules were signed, any reduction
in wages would not be well received.

duced last nigbt at Tapping's Opera

play was based on the story of Charles
Dickens' David Copperlield, some of

being presented. The sensational
scenes of tbe shipwreck, etc , as were
advertised were left out, thereby leaving too much of the plot to the imagination. The family life of Mi-
cauber waa overdone, though the
situations at times were ludicrous.
The play lucked those essentials which
arc necessary to concentrate  interest.
