Work to be Rushed—Enormous
Winnipeg, March 24.—An enormous
| plant being used by the railway contracting firm of Meiers. Foley, Welch
& 8tewart in carrying out their contracts for double tracking the Canadian Pacific Railway between Winnipeg and Fort William and the fUiilsiing
of tbe Thunder Bay brano'.i of the
Grand Trunk Paoific from Pf rt Arthur
north to the main line, will'je shipped
early next month via tl.e C.P.R. to
Vanoouver. It will be uti'ized In con
nection with the firm's Contracts for
constructing the Kitajiiaat branch
and a 100-mile section,Sf the Grand
Trunk Paoific east from Prince Rupert. The magnitude o. the outfit is
apparent from its diversified character.
It embraces scores of rock drills for
driving tunnels, stem hoists, six hundred teams of horses, ten miles of
track for dump cars, and over one
thousand peddler cars and carts, besides other incidental plant.
This only comprises a portion of the
equipment owned by this firm which,
after providing for the work on the
Pacific coast, still has enough plant
left to build the section of the Grand
Truuk Pacific between Saskatoon and
Edmonton, over three hundred miles,
besides a 120-mile section of main line
west of Edmonton Moat of the grading on the first-mentioned section has
been completed.
With the equipment from points
e,iet of Winnipeg will come thousands
of men who have been employed by
this firm lor several years past. The
work of double-tracking tne C,P.R.
between Winnipeg and Fort William
is virtually finished as only three
railway camps remain. Grading on
the branch line ol the Grand Trunk
Pacific from Port Arthur north to the
main line is also nearing completion
aa all the camps have been closed
with the exception of five.
It is understood tbat the dirt will be
flying in earnest at Prince Rupert snd
all along that section early in May
Mr. J. W. Stewart, managing director
of the contracting firm is now in Edmonton in connection with contracts
in that vicinity, ft is not likely that
be will reach Vanoouver until a fortnight hence.
Engineer Grabowski Saved life
of Small Boy
Cauiary, March 25.—Some men are
known by their deeds and au item
from Innlsfail brings the news of a
very brave deed done by Engineer
Grabjwaki, of C.P.R. engine No. 391
His promptness and presence of mind
eaved the life of a young lad named
Woods, a boy 12 years old, son of J. R.
The lad was crossing the railway
track witb bis school companions and
Woods in trying to run across in front
of switch engine 391, tripped and fell
in tbe right of way. The engine had
too muoh momemtum on to pull up
aud Grabowski ran along the engine
and jumping on to tbe foot board
picked tbe ltd up in tbe niok of time
and threw him clear. Beyond a fright
tbe boy was uninjured.
It was a biave act and ought not to
be allowed to pass without recognition.
It was witb difficulty tbe name of the
engineer could be obtained.

Gap in Public Life
Cannes, March 24.—Spencer Comp-
ton Cavendish, eighth duke of Devonshire, died here this morning of heart
failure. He was born July 23, 1833,
and was a son of the seventh duke,
and Blanche, daughter of the Barl of
Tbe death of tbe duke leaves a gap
in tbe public life of Great Britain, for
although his withdrawal from the
Balfour ministry when Joseph Cbam-
berlin launched his fiscal policy,
estranged him from a majority of the
party, he still had a large following in
the country and was president of tbe
Union Free Trade League. He took
an active part in tbe campaign against
tariff reform. He led tbe Liberals
during the ten porary retirement of
Gladstone in 1876, and was offered,
but refused tbe premiership after tbe
Midlothian campaign of 1880. He
was sgain offered tbe honor upon tbe
detest of home rule, but again refused.
The duke bas no family and tbe
dukedom passes to his nephew, Mr.
Cavendish, who married a daughter of
Lord Lansdowne

A Gruesome Find
Victoria, March 24.—Lying ou a
projecting rock in the bush about five
hundred yards behind -Four Mile
bouse, tbe skeleton' of a man was
found Saturday morning' shortly before noon. A whisky flask, long since
empty, a revolver with tbe only cart,
ridge in the chamber discharged, and
a copy of the Colonist of June Snd of
last year, were the only-articles found
by the remains other than the almost
decayed clothing which once contained
a human form.
Nothing but tbe skeleton was left,
but from appearances the remains
were those of a man about 5 leet 6
inches in height, who at the time of
death was clothed in apparently medium dark clothing, soft brown felt
bat, and possessed apparently brown
hair, though the color is now almost
indistinguishable, From exposure to
tne elements tbs clothing which encased the bones is difficult ol description.
Lying by tbe side of the gruesome
evidence of a distant tragedy was a
revolver, old faabioned and rusty, witb
one chamber containing a shell from
which tbe bullet had been discharged,
apparently of a .38 calibre. Through
tbe skull, above the right ear is tbe
bole made by the. passage of tbe bullet,
presumably from the revolver found.
Man Crushed to Death under
Engine on C.P.R. Bridge.
Another (atal accident in connection with the new C.I'.R. Columbia
Bridge, occurred on Monday morning
when John Hugh Mclnnis, aged 24,
employed as anow shoveller on the
bridge, was crushed beneath the wheels
of a locomotive, bis left ride tiring
badly mangled, succumbing to his
injuries a few hours afterw irda.
It appears lhat a work train hauled
by locoinoli»e No. 2150 hid, shortly
before the acoident, paasrd weat over
the bridge with several cars of bridge
material and was returning, backing
up slowly with empties when the de.
ceased, in eome manner, fell across tbe
track and wae crushed by Ihe wheels
of the tender, tbe body being pushed
several feet before any one in the
vicinity notice the accident. The injured man wss at once removed to tbe
hospital where he lingered in a semiconscious state for nearly two hours
till he died.
Coroner Cross held au inquest on
the body on Monday night in the oity
hall and in the evidence given it appears that the men working on the
bridge had all received due warning of
tbe approach of the train aud that
there was ample means of safety on
either side of the bridge for the men, I
while a train was pasting. No one
actually noticed the deceased immediately before the accident, nor was it
seen how he came to get foul uf the
engine. The engineer of tbe locomotive stated that the track at that
point was all clear when backing up.
The evidence showed that the train
had whistled when commencing to
return Irom across the west side and
that the bell was ringing and tbat
with tbe warning given eaoh man
should look alter himself.
Dr. Hamilton gsve medical testimony on tbe deceased's injuries. Tb*
jury returned a verdict of accidental
death, attaching no blame to anyone.

Thara is so much bad in Ihe best of as,
Aod so much food ia Ike worst of us.
That it hardly behooves any of un,
Tu talk about the real of us.
The greatest of our national possession are not mineral resource,
foreets or utilities, but the quality
of life bandsd down from our ancestors and the stores of knowledge
ol literature handed down and
what ia greater tbe institutions,
laws and customs of th* race, chief
of which ar* tk* public schools
Natural resources are of little use
without education to develop them
and geographical positions are
made important hy development
due to education. There are some
things in schools which are hardly
in keeping with trie needs which
are to equip the boys to earn a
livelihood. A school should be a
means of coisefving knowledge,
imparting knowledge and putting
life at its best. For the protection
of the body politic every man
must be capable of earning an
honest livelihood and capable nf
performing the dutiesof a citizen
and making use of his franchise
or liberty will be lost. The time
will com* when one quarter of the
school dayn will be Jtvoted to doing work with ttie hands on tangible things, one quarter to languages, one quarter to science and
one quarter to mathematics. Education is a series of human experi-
nncss lnading up to an increase of
knowledge, power, goodwill, ability
and skill of body and goodwill of
soul. It ihould be the highest
privilege to advance the education
of the people as it is th* most important duty ol statesmanship. Jt
is not becoming to us to underestimate the valuo of well trained
teachers   or   to   remunerate "them
below what is their right for both
of these unless taken care of will
lead to national suicide. We arc
the heirs of all ages and we should
leave behind us for those who come
after us something just a little bit
better than was left us. It is to
our children we look for the enob-
ling of our future Canadian pride
and it is our duty to lay the seeds
of uprightness and national excellence that may produce the fruit to
perfection. Parents as well as
teachers have a duty to the children and this should be also a duty
to the empire, for the upbringing of
future generations in mental, physical as well as in moral principles
is by far the greatest obligation
that our nationalism demands of
As far as can be gathered there
does not seem to be any idea of
handling any extensive city improvements tbis year and the city
council in their decision on this
matter havo acted wisely. While
a growing city like Revelstoke entails steadily increasing charges
for administrative purposes, it is
quite possible while such civic improvement is in progress to increase
the outlay beyond what is really-
necessary, There are many things
which are desirable but which cannot be had without either adding
to the burdens of the taxpayers or
creating new permanent debt.
Neither of these courses should be
attempted at the present time.
Things really necessary for the
comfort and health of the citizens,
must and should, of course, be had
as far as is possible. But other
schemes and other projects requiring considerable expenditure should
be postponed for a more convenient
season. The condition of the civic
finances and the demands on the
treasury that must be met forbid
any outlay on things not absolutely
necessary. In all directions we see
governments municipal and others,
conducting their affairs |with a
cautious policy and avoiding as far
as possible to commit themselves
to obligations that can only be met
by the creation of a new debt. Rev-
elstoke'e government should adopt
a similar policy. The people must
realize that if their requests for
civic improvements, new sidewalks
or street opening arc turned down,
it is for the best, and that the
council with un eye to the future
as well as the present, have adopted a policy that will, by economy
now, result in far more benefit for
the city and the citizens iu the
future and that foresight practised
at this time will put the city on a
better basis.
There is so much truth in the
following concise statement, uttered by the Municipal World, that it
will bear repeating: "There should
be no faction in any town. The
property of one individual and
every improvement enhances the
value of all property in the corporation. A town is simply one big
family. When this is discarded
there is little progress. When there
is a united pull for anything, its
accomplishment is made easy.
Envy, jealousy and hatred are
things to be despised. Envy is a
canker that i^naws at the heart and
makes folks sour, disgruntled ami
unhsppy; jealousy warps the intellect and makes us unfair in
passing judgment. Hatred doesn't
pay even from a sordid point ot
British Columbia Richest Possession of British Empire.
Luther D, WiBhard, of New York,
vice-president of the lted Fir Lumber
company, of Victoria and Nanainio, ie
on his fourth visit to the capital ol B.
C. in tbe last 18 months, und he can
hardly find words to describe his impressions and bis views of the potentialities of British Columbia.
Alter eighteen mouths of active in-
vestigation of your province, he remarked, I am prepared to believe the
remark of J. 8. DenniB, land commissioner of the C.P.R. that British Columbia is the richest possession of the
British Empire. That description is
not at all overdrawn.
Take your timber supply alone. It
is enormous. In the United States we
aro already within the pale of a timber
famine. Ail tbat wo can do is to get
the tariff off and buy timber from Canada. When the effect of the wholesale
destruction ol its timber areas upon
the climate and rainfall ol the United
States, is considered, one readily comes
to the conclusion that the British Columbia government acted wisely in
placing a reserve upon the timber
areas ol the crown. It is extremely
important tbat steps should be taken
to reforest the areas as they are
Not alone the timber; when you
consider the province aa the prospective orchard of the empire, as your
finance milliliter aptly put it, when on
the top ol that you consider your climate, your fisherie. and your extent of
arable land, and cap it ail witb your
mineral resources,Mr. Dennis' remark
may be understood.
This Province Has Very Valuable Asset in Her Scenery
In British Columbia we have booms
in mining land, timber and real es ntc,
but one ol our greatest assests has not
yet been exploited to any great exten'.
I riler to the tourist trade There is
millions in it for this province if we
will ouly reach out and get the globe
trotters to stay here (or months at a
time. In the summer time no country in tli' world surpasses tbis glorious province in its attractions for
those who love nature in its most
delightful moeds. All tbat is now
neceaanry to do is to have good hotels
at every point of scenic beauty and
use elegant printing to tell the world.
It would pay the government to
spend vast stuns in fostering ibis
trade. The C.l'.R. has done a great
deal, but only at » lew lavored epots.
Years ago I wrote Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessy asking him to build an hotel at
New Denier, as tbere woold be millions in it. He replied saying tbat
the C.l'.K. was not climbing for mil-
liona and tbat tbe road would give
someone else a chance to build tbe
hotel aud make tbe millions. I agi-
tat.'d'for fifteen years to have a mint
built in I.' ii..i.i. and, one is now in

F. Yeigh Describes a Selkirk
Mountain Trail and its Fascination to the Mountaineer
—A Vivid Picture.
Tbo gloriei and wonder, of the
Selkirk Mountains are but realized bv
a tew, snd to fully appreciate the sublimity ol nature here displayed in her
majestic grandeur, one must bave
tasted ol the disci nation and delights
of the "challenge ol tbe mountains
and   have   answered   the   call of the
"Here's the start, along the railway
track dodging Imperial Limited) and
Pacific Expresses and groaning freights
as only broDohoes can, for tbey are
born dodgers.
"Then a plunge into the Selkirk
forest, the mountain sides a mass of
verdure, a tangle of leaf and bush and
flower. The course is full of ups ami
downs, creased every few yards by a
galloping little riverlet fussing along
on its way to the river, and to the loss
of its individuality.
"For a space we travel ever the old
tote road of C. P. R. construction days.
(Could it not tell tales and spin
yams?) For another space, remnants
of snow sheds in the shape of huge
timbers strew the side, revealing their
wilds " Frank Yeigh of Toronto,
one of the most descriptive writers of
tbe day in Canada, aptly describes a
trip in the Selkirks up the famous
Cougar Valley to tbe Deutschman
Caves so well known to our Revelstoke
people snd indeed the world in general.
In a descriptive letter to the Winnipeg
Free Press, Mr. Yeigh says:
"Once more I have hit the trail.
' It is a trail in the Selkirks, and
who shall adequately sing of the joy,
the freedom, the exhilaration of tbe
journey over its sinous length!
"How health-giving the blessed
breath of the mountain air, the scent
of the wild flower life, the aroma of
nature in all her bewilderment of
luscious growth.     Tbe  real life it the
story of avalanche or snowi-litlc power.
"Down and down toward* the ever-
lowering Illecilleivaet wo drop till
Mount Sir Donald and all bis statelli-
tiei arc lost to view.
"Ferns, mouses, big-leaved plants,
webs of vegetable growths crowd all
the areas between the forest monarebs
for monarchs they are, clean limbed,
straight-limbed, erect as grenadier
guards, seeking the sun with ne'er r
distorted branch. Clean-hearted too,
judging by a recently felled specimen,
and not even cross-grained. Excellent qualities in tree or man.
"Paddy is now doing the first ol a
series of climbing acts. On the left
are the railway loops, iiug.-ing Ab'iott's
b.ise, nearing Bonney's ice field and all
life of the open air; and the real world
is the out-of-doors world.
'Down by the Illecilleivaet glacier,
where the mountain hotel is crowded
into a cleft between the hill wateway,
our pony train is packed, with the diamond hitch, and saddled with the ten
derfeet travellers. Sid Baker shouts
the word of command to Paddy, the
lead horse, to start the procession, and
Paddy, tbe obedient Irishman that he
is, solemnly hits the trail, bearing on
hia back a precious cargo of blankets,
grub, ice axes and ropes.
"We make for Charlie Deutsch-
nian's cabin away up Cougar valley to
tbe north. I wonder if there is such
another trail in Rockies or Selkirks, in
Cascades or  Coastal   range?     It is a
but colliding with Ross Peak. Even
the abiding hills must have marvelled
at the audacity of man in finding footholds for his tracks of steel over which
the snake like trains crawl. D.ies tbe
mountain realize that man ia greater
than its broad-based mass?
"Or perchance the mountain does
not design to notice the tiny human
intruder into ita realm of majesty and
might, 1 don't believe Mount Sir Donald noticed the tenderfoot wbo, climbing the Cheops trail, gazed back and
marvelled aB he gazed oo the dominating bulk of this kingly spirit throned
among the hills.
"For bb Paddy shows us his sturdy
heels, on' the next corkscrew bit of the
trail, where the trees are bigger at the
way of charm and delight, of never-
ending change, ol ever-unfolding panorama.
butt and higher in the reaoh, all the
iiimintaint to the southward are shifting their positions.     Dus ahsad, and
higher, rise thu white crowned and
sombre-shaded »lopce of Cougar—tbe
mountain with tbe half-score of peaks,
toward which tbe trail is gradually
lifting lis.
"And the life on toe trail too—
alarmed partridges lying to us as to
the whereabouts of their young, Gophers making faces at us, and marmots, perched on the boulders along
the narrow path, whistling their
challenge and alarm. Come to think
of it, there were birds too— but one
can't be au ornithologist, when geology and botany demand attention, so
we'll let the birds sing without trying
to classify them according to tbe bird
"If you hit the Cougar trail long
enough, the trees will be left huddled
in the valley depths. Alpine meadows
will come into view, where mountain
eh<°ep find rich browsing and where
your strong-minded mount will frequently dine as if it were a free lunch
counter. Patches of snow, remnants
of the spring's snowsheds run their
white tongues between the   meadows.
"Don't forget that we are still
climbing. The next bit takes us up
another corkscrew way with mighty
sharp corners and mighty narrew
horse space. Waterfalls, too, are decorating the entire sides with their
white ribbons and some careful navigation through tumbling streams is
made by the keen eyed ponies.
"I tell you this trail-hitting is great
sport I It brings the higher peaks
nearer, it makes the hitherto hidden
ways reveal themselves, it penetrates
nature Eldorados and lifts the trailer
physically and spiritually, high above
tbe va'ley bed.
"Deutschman's cabin—hut ..crimps

a halt, but presuming an old acquaintance, an entrance is forced, a fir*
started, a dish of tea brewed, a rasher
of bacon fried and a pot of jam opened.
A feast of rare satisfaction follows,
with a night's sleep of rare soundness,
despite tbe efforts of porcupines, gophers and mountain rats to gnaw their
way in. Only the two latter succeeded
and they kindly scamper over my
travelling pal instead over his pal.
'Nature sings us to sleep with many
voices—and silence i, with the songs of
the cascades high above us, that never
stop for breath; with the nearer song
of the Cougar liver right at our cabin
door, and with tbe wierder inutile of
the river that reaches us from the cave
world din ci Iy below, with its inferuos
aod pits aud Humes and canyon depths
steeped in ihe daikne.s of blackest
"The ear y morning glimpse ol the
world reveals ft wonder corner ol Canada, surrounded by v shaped lines of
peaks, with a va.t sr.oiv Held crowded
in between. Here the trail bitteis
leave their pouies to the enjoyment of
a pasture banquet nnd hit number
trail up the Cougar snow slope, passing
a line of trees cut off near tbeir bases
by an early spring snowslide.
"The river is roofed in by snow
bridges over which we carefully pick
our devious way, noting many, a fresh
foot-print of mountain animals.
Where the snow roof had fallen into
the it ream through the watery undermining, miniature icebergs float in
miniature fords marked by rarest color
"Up and up the snow slope the amateur alpinists puff their way. On every
hand we tread upon the strange red
snow—an unsolved riddle to the scientist, though he has identified it aa the
algea of nature. To the red man the
colored spots represent billions ol
snow-fleas. Snow spiders and snow
flies, of unusual size and blackness,
dot the white surface. Later, a inouii
tain goat run gives '-s the best of
trails to the peaks above the summit
of the pass.
"The hours ol upgrade toil in the
mountains have their exceeding great
reward. The first peep over the roof
of the Cougar ridge is worth all ths
breath and strength spent in reaching
it, for the eyes ret for the lirst time
upon other valleys, other peaks are
martialled in military line, other
glacial masses are wedged in between
towering rock walls whose depths
make the mind dizzy in an effort to
measure tbem. Other extensive snow
areas give a note of white grandeur
under the blue sky and above the blue
mists of the vallry deds.
"High above our beads, the six
peaks of Cougar mountain dare ua to
scale their boulder strewn shoulders.
The challenge is accepted, in a spirit
of ascendenoy that seizes upon the
climber. Peak No, 1 is reached, Ko.
2, No. 3, No. 4, each higher than its
neighbor, and ss those without cairns
had probably never been conquered
before, stone men are duly built. Along
narrow ridges of rock we crept, now
negotiating a snow cornice ol uncer
tain security, mw enlireling a buttress rock tbat throws ths upper part
of the body over indefinite depth,
now scaling a sky-aspiring wall.
"Hitting the trail is rare aport, but
hitting the summit of a dignified and
aristocratic old mountain, for the first
time, ie rarer sport still, It ie cine-
thing to bite one's teeth en, and to
test nerve and wits and self control.
"Then tbe vision! Tbe fifty miles of
tbe I'lecillewaet dtiyon lies io full
view, bordered on the west by Mount
Begbie and the Columbia; Sir Donald
and his family loom up grander than
ever; the Hermits stand forth in
startling majesty, the world is lull of
mountains !
"But man cannot for long aubaisc on
scenery. Already a score of hours-
have slipped by since the bre - kfast in
the cabin, and already this chronicle
is too long drawn out or else there
might be recoided tbe unsuccessful
efforts of the trio climbers to find
short cuts to camp down the almost
perpendicular walls of Cougar, negotiating chimneys too long for our
longest rope, getting in the path of
dangerous rook slides, and testing rotten rocks and elippery snow,
"Back the way we came, traversing
again the quartette of peaks, glissading down tbe snow fields, the tender-
feet (ah, their feet are tender in all
truth by this timet) hit the welcome
trail to Charlie' bunk house and food
cache, back to the Glacier House,—
back home !

in evidence and the millinery staffs ol
these two progressive linns were kept
busy. The creation* this year are
very marked and show a new style in
many cases The large hat is rather
fashionable and tlie merry widow ie
distinctly noticeable. There is no par
ticuliir pre| nnderanoe in color, and
flowers are extensively used in Irim-
mings. As a whole the spring millinery of l'JOi is daintier and more elab
orate than lhat of lasl year, and these
Arms have both risen to the occasion
and have goods tbat eastern cities
might well envy. The beads ot tbe
departments have carried out tbeir
in a dainty fashion and it will well
repay every member oi the Revelstoke
lair Bex to visit these two up to dale
stores where all the latest fashions ol
spring millinery are so temptingly
displayed and wheie in effort ie lost
to satisfy even the most fastidious. It
makes a highly interestin - and pleas
ing morning's diversion to look over
this season s goods and to cboose from
a large and replete stock the very
latest thing in feminine headgear.
To the most critical each specimen
ol millinery possessed some special
teature either in shape or style ol
trimming, or color scheme and all
bear evidence of good taste in selce
lion and skill in manipulation. Great
ia the variety in trimmings, flowers ol
moderate to large Bize, ribbonB mostly
in plain effects, here and there relieved
by brilliant Persian, o^prey and ottrioh
plumes. Blues and Roman piuk are
stylish colors, though black, white
and natural tones are more in evidence.
Speaking generally tbe display this
year is highly creditable, proving tbat
in millinery Revelstoke is not going to
be left behind and showing the same
determination to forge ahead, tbat has
been so well demonstrated in other
departments of these two firms, in tbe
business life of this. city. Miss Me-.

Successful Event in Aid of the
A very successful progressive whist
tournament was held last night in the
city hall, under the auspices of the
Ladies' Hospital Guild. The council
chamber had been tastefully decorated
for the occasion. This is the lirst
entertainment of this nature that has
been held in aid of tbe hospital and
proved an exceedingly popular - and
enjoyable ;event.. Sixfy-four,: players
eat down to sixteen tables aud played
cm uteadily till midnight, tlie only'
diversion being the strong westerly
gale which swept up about 10 30 p.m.,
shaking the city hall and causing
every window in the building to rattle.
At midnight an excellent supper
was served and thoroughly appreciated
by all present, During supper the
tally cards ol the players were counted
the prize winnets being Mrs. E. A.
Haggen, Mre. H. Cunningham Morris,
and Messrs. W. A. Sturdy and R. Gordon. The prizes were exceedingly
The supper proved a most enjoyable
item ot the ovening, the guests finding
much amusement in recounting incidents ol the game.
Tbe Guild reports that a large
number of tickets were sold apart from
those who attended the tournament
and a handsome sum will be turned
over to the hospital. Tbe Ladies'
i.uild are to be congratulated on tbe
success of tbeir undertaking, which
will in all probability lie the lirst of
many such enjoyable evenings.
