IMPRESSIONS
Of Revelstoke Scenery
The latest issue of the "Ford Times''
contains a particularly interesting series of views of Revelstoko and district.
The photos are splendid views taken
by Aid. Horobin, and are well reproduced giving excellent pictures of the
unrivalled scenery for which Revel -
stoke is becoming famous throughout a
wide area. Half a dozen of tbe views
illustrate a trip by automobile thru
the Canadian Rockies, and two larger
views depict Mount Revelstoke and the
Selkirks from the mount Revelstoko
auto road. Dealing with tho fascinating subject of the great route, Mr. F.
M. Dean, the writer of the article,
which a'*'*ompiinies the views, says :—
"The motorist who will travel the
'great' route' will be ollered a variety
of inte'eBting side trips. Many roads,
suitable for motor driving are already
finished .md two are rapidly being push
cd forward. They open up regions of
teeatity unknown five years ago— and
many are worth a tri across the continent in themselves. One of the finest
of these will be the motor road up
Mount Revelstoke. Already some miles of this ;s finished; nine miles more
of 0.7 graded macadam will take one
to the Bummit 6,150 feet above sea level. The panorama spread before the
tourist irom this peak is sublime. For
75 miles iu each direction spread the
snow capped peaks of the Gold, lllecillewaet and Selkirk ranges. Thousands
of feet below in the pine clad valleys
can be caught glimpses of the Columbia and lllecillewaet rivers. By oas*y
j.ony trm-from the chalet can be
riach-d two of the prettiest lukes on
the Continent, Eva and Miller, and
fiom theii rocky shores another splendid panorama is unfolded of the Greal
Gordon Racier. It would take a vol-
i.me to describe the' beauties ot the Co
li mbi.i tn: Windermere valleys, the
Ye£rmill. ,\*i.pass and Kootenay and Ok
uiingan lakes along whose shares the
'great ro^te'  will pass.
Secure your seats early for the Male
Voice Choir concert, Empress theatre.
Friday, Nov. *JS. Tickets to be had
from  a  :■   of  the  members.
Steel .- expected to be laid on the
Grand T.*unk Pacific Railway line as
far as Prince George early next month
A regul i- train service is being operated at present from l'rince Rupert to
S mit hers, 227 miles from the Pacific
terminal, and additional traffic connections are made from Smithers to Rose
Lake, another T.I miles east, thus making 3<)i' miles altogether on the coast
section.
The stati-tics gathered by the Labor
department -how ihat Canada is main
taining its reputation for high prices.
The index number, which shows as accurately a- can be done, the relative
charge in the cost of living iB nearly
one point higher for the month of Oc-
lober than ieu* September. The index
numlier for October, 1U12, was 135;
for September, 191U, it was 13G, while
for last monih thc figures just compiled show that it Was 136.8. This is a
very unusual increase for one month,
except for January, which is largely a
price-setting month. The reports from
different parts of the country show
lhat th'1 retail prices of meals, eggs,
milk and butter are all higher. Evaporated apple- and coul are also um -
ong the commodities that arc slill going up. Wholesale prices ure also
higher for corn, peas, Ontario barley ,
hay and bran. Cattle and beef aro
also well up, as are dairy products ex-
cept cheese. Fresh Canadian frilite
anl potatoes commanded higher prices
Some af the wholesale prices, how -
ever, wore lower, including wheat, Hax
wosiern oats and barley, hog and hog
products, Imported fruits, beans on -
ions and canned vegetables. There wero
lower retail prices aNo for potatoes as
the crop came on tbe market, and for
beans, Hour, rolled oats and sugar.

ARemai. Me Voyage
A wireless despatch from Sicamous
tells of a remarkable noyage by that
well-known circum-navigalor Cupt. Ri
J. Stewart, of Revelsloke and Sicamous.
The Taptain, with Togo Oyainu for
mate, sailed from Sicamous outward
bound with a scow of hay in tow for
the logging camp up the Anstie Arm.
Owing io inderterminuto weather conditions and the weight of the under -
tow, they had barely made the nar -
rows when ihey ere interrupted by a
heavy fall of night. However, as the
calendar indicated star-light, and the
compass pointed North, (mag. var.23)
and the glass promised fair-to-chunge,
with an atmospheric pressure curve
moving S.S.E., the doughty Coptain
resolved to push on at all ha^urds. He
therefore called all hands on deck and
ordered him to mast-head the porch-
light, wind aud set the larboard watch
und keep a sharp look-oul for breakers
ahead.
But when dawn broke! over the port
gable, it found the mariners still afloat
cn the deep with the cargo intact, and
lhe Captain at his post, one hand ou
tbe helm and the other on the mizzen
spark plug. Thecrew climbed up the
fore-peak halyards and reported land
in bight. The Captain ported bis helm
ordering the crew to heave two or three
sSeets in. the wind clambered lightly to
lhe crew's-nost, whence by observe -
tions with his theodolite and careful
soundings he succeeded in accurately
determining his position. He found
that, while he had not exactly reached
his destination, he had lieen remark -
ably successful in circum-uuvigating
the lake and had again arrived at the
narrows. This was later confirmed by
wireless from a vessel in the offing.
It is reported that the speedometer
showed that they had made thirty-
three   knots and   l»*u  bowlines.
Sailing dates of Capt. Stewart's regular round trips "will bo published later

Tho ro, enl Balaclava dinner in London was only attended by six of tbt
thirteen survivors of the charge. On
the V.Mh anniversary of "thnt nover-to-
lx' forgotten action' as Hi- Majesty de
■cribed it in e. telegcam on the occasion
of the celebration there were' only two
offloen still living who took part—Major Phillips, Sth Hussars, and Cnptnin
Perej Smith, 13th Light Diagoons.
The Mayor (.Aid. RUpatricki) pro -
sided at a meeting of the Ciiy Council
held on Friday nighl in the City Hull,
when there were also present Aldermen
Horobin. McSorley, Bourne and Mc-
Kinnan. with the city solicitor .(Mr.
MeCarter) and the acting oity clerk,
(Mr.  W.A. Gordon.)
Continuing his statement respecting
the Lawson account, Aid. MeKinnon
said*
In the ease of the water and light
item marked $1 Instead of -Si04, stubbs
were used at that time instead of duplicute receipts, and the finance committee had no way of checking that
account. As to the check of tho General Blectric Company changed to bearer, ii was brought to the finance committee with a voucher and signed by
ihem and after it left the committee it
was changed io bearer. The ouly people io blame about that account was
the bauk for payiug that check without the change having been initialled
by ihe Mayor. The check for taxes
sale, for which no receipts were issued
comes under the same lines as others,
for which no receipts were issued. The
items Wing Chung and others mention
ed in the reporl were treated in like
manner. Taxes were received and no
receipts issued, something over which
the finance committee did not have auy
control. If you will look ai clause SB
governing the city of Revelstoke you
will find the duties of the finance committee outlined as looking after expenditure, .hocking bilU and so forth.
Well, the sifting oul or original hunt -
ing up of this money was done by the
finance committee aud the thing was
t.roiighl toa head by the eflortB of thu
finaui-e committee. The finance committee did ii forthe protection ot the
city, and did not expect io be criticised for negligence when they wcut to
thai trouble. I think thai covers the
full amount oi Mr. Stein's audii, treating e.-ach item separately, and if anybody can show me Where the finance
lommiuee neglected their duly in auy
of those matter-', why, I am willing to
lake the blame. In the second place,
in regard to the action of lhe finance
committee, in another part of the newspaper report 1 see an alderman said the
committee did nol do anything. 1 personally checked every account. If you
will refer the matter to the acting city
clerk you will find that 1 have turned
back accounl after account from limu
to time which needed rectifying. While!
1 may have made mistakes, like anyone else, -till I have always tried to
do my duty as a tnemlx-r ot the finance
committee and lam very sorry I have
laid myself open to criticism. But 1
think if you look the mutter up you j
will tind thai one thing I have alwaya
trii-d io do, I have made every etlorl j
io keep the work of the finance coin-1
mittee in :l proper maimer.
Aid. Horobin—I presume all this pre- ,
amble and sermon is for my benefit. I
Tae chairman of the finance committee
wa- not here at the last meeting. I
think I made some remark there that
the finance committee was to blame.
Whul I fully intended saying was lhat
•ome people bad the idea thai the finance committee were to blame, but
inini my connection wiih ihe councilor
Willi llie finance committee, il appeared
thai the finance cominiitoo wa- toi the
purpose of signing cheeks only. And 1
-lill maintain, us far as my knowledge
goes, thai i- all Wo are there for, or all
I Was ever supposed to have dono, thai
and also to cheek accounts. I think
ihere is some blame due to the wholu
of the council. Some months ago this
question Was ihra-'hed out thoroughly
in the ouncil, and tho auditors report
Was lupposed to be obtained and pub-
li-hisl. Thi- ba- kept people on tenter hooks. 11 ha- neither boon fair to
Luw-on nor the ratepayers to have
this cloud hanging over Lawson. Somo
|ieople magnified this amount, some
-aid the shortage was io the extent of
J2O.000 or 130,000. There was no offl-
• ial information given to the Press,
and I think even the council was to
blame io i certain extent for not taking the ratepayers into tho confidence '
nl ihe council.
Tho Mayor—I .piito approve of what
Aid.   MeKinnon   has  said.   Anyone   In
touch with the affairs oi this council
knows that the greatest efforts bave
been made to get this matter closed up
for tonights meeting. The public were
promised a statement as soon as it
could be had and every effort has beeu
taken. Ratepayers wero written to
repeatedly to try and get from them if
they hud puid their taxes and since
Aid. Horobin came into the council We
appointed the acting city clerk to find
cut who has paid, lt has entailed
trouble on Mr. Gordon. I do not see
ihat the council should be criticised, I
do not think it is just or deserved. 1
will say it was a most unfortunate affair. We hoped we would have the
statement ready a long Ume ago, but
we were unable to get it ready because
ihe people themselves were holding us
back. They would not even answer
our communications and we had to
send the city clerk lo get it. 1 am
willing to take any share of any blame
that is coming to this council bui 1
am not willing to be criticised wheu
cot to blame.
Aid. Horobin—Extra work has been
done by the city clerk and different
members ot the council but still 1
think the ratepayers should have been
taken inlo consideration, especially ii
it was through their own fault il has
been drugged out so long. You say a
great many have been communicated
with by letter and personally and that
you could not get information from
ihem and so it was impossible to make
up ih« statement. Still there have
been veiled hints made as to what has
beeu going on but nothing official. You
speak to one pany who says the short
age wus a certain amount, the next
cne magnifies it and so on until you
do not know where you are at. If
lhere had been a statement given out
by the city thai ihere hud been discrep
ancies made and discoveries made, and
thai a statement would be laid before
the ratepayers at an early date, thu
council could not have been criticised
in auy shape or form about it. I do
cot know when the irregularities wero
first discovered but it must have been
a considerable lime ago. If it Was rate
payers fault thai the information could
not be obtained, and I have no doubt
it is as said some ratepayers who were
at fault, 1 think that aU the more reason it should have been made public.
because tlie couneil has been criticised,
and very severely.
Aid. MeKinnon—In regard to the
lest few remarks 1 on one occasion
sometime in June or July, or pcrhaps
a lillie earlier as this thing first start
ed about April made a motiou iu the
council that as soon as this matter was
Biluxl out uuel the auditor's report prepared the matter should be made public. From time to time at meetings oi
the council the matter of the shortage
has been made public, 1 do not think
people have been under the Impress ion
that thu la'.' cily clerk has been fired
out of office, and abused, and .-'o forth
without  any reason, or unjustly,and I
think tho matter has lieen handled lo
ihe beet oi our ability. My intentions
verenol at anytime lo deceive (he
ratepayers or hide anything from ilreni
As lo the late city clork being bold under a cloud, woll if he was under any
cloud ihat there is light going to shine
through from the publication of this
report it  won't rain for a  long  time,
Tho Mayor—It waB well known that
lhe last special meeting a week ago to-
i.ighi was called for the specific purpose of trying to close this up and
then we failed and it was left over un
til this meeting. Fortunately wc have
gol it now. Whilsi I do nol mind
fair criticism I do not think the acl-
i< n of this council should bo taken in
band. These accounts „nd any of ttoeso
figures were avuilable in the books for
any of tbe ratepayers 0f Kevelstoke to
see at any time they wished to do so.
There was nothing secret about it and
every councillor has known what was
being done and tho efforts to try to
clear it up. Wo havo done so for moro
reasons than one. I do not think there
is any just criticism coming to tho
council forthe way this has boon han- j
died. The lir t notico was sent out |
in May and very little replies followed
Aid. Horobin—That ia Just  whnt    1
maintain.
The Mayor—Theu the acting city j
clerk was instructed to go aud see peo- i
pie with lhe resull that he only just
got hack here tonight in time for this
meeting, Now it is closed so fur as we
know. Now the full report can be pub
lished but ii could noi up to the present time, lu fact some things came
out within the last few days.
Aid.  Horobin—Those    parties     who
have been so negligent wbo might have
given facts mighl have been in town all
I this year.   According io whul you say
' it was residents  who kepi this back.
i    The Mayor—I  would uot say     thoy
are     negligent.     They  have a   perfect
right io give up receipts or otherwise.
If the money has been paid     and  they
hold receipts 1     don't see     tbat they
shouM  bother anything about it     and
people would     not  do it.    You cannol
force  Ihem.
Aid. MeKinnon—Oue person wus possibly written to repeatedly ou difiereni
occasions. I still fail to sec where the
blame comes to the finance committee.
The Mayor—ll is not a ipiostion of
criticism, we are going to tuKe fair
criticism. But to say it should have
been published when it was Impossible
is unfair.
The Mayor—There was nothing hidden here.
Aid. McSorley—It is n pity it could
not have beeu got through sooner.
Aid. McSorley—I do not think there
was much wrong aboui it only the
thing is people think so, that is the
trouble.
The Mayor—Not one solitary complaint have 1 hoard. 1 think mosl of
the ratepayers have confidence. Not a
single complaint about not getting tlie
auditor's report out Iiave 1 heard.
Aid. Horobin—I have heard some.
Tue city solicitor—We have got the
last cent, including the cost of the uul
it itself.
Aid. MeKinnon—1 think the city comes out of ii awfully well. They have
not  lost a cent.   1 have been at it tbe
HEW BUSINESS BLOCK
Opened This Week
The opening oi Aid. Guy Barber's
handsome and splendidly cvquipped new
block for business', constitutes a wel -
come addiiion to the buildings oi
which Revelstoke may justly be proud
and a decided acquisition to the commercial centre of the oity.
The new block i- well known, occupying a- it does n commanding position in the main business thoroughfare, ami al-o b.v reason of the fact
that two memorable social gatherings
were held in th-- spacious now building
prior io its opening for business pur-
po-Vs is the sO'ial given by the staff
and the whist drive in aid oi the hospital funds.
The' premises comprise a 36ft by 75ft
busine-- blo.k on the ground floor, a
specially fitted optical room and com-
modiou- offioes, occupied by medical
men a- consulting loom- an 1 head •
quarters, upstairs.
Th" building, which was erected jy
Messrs. Foote and Pradolini, is splend
idly built an I finished, the interior
work being as artistic and plea-ing as
the exterior, work is substantial, and
is steam hent«sl throughout. In short,
tbo new block represents all that up-
lo-date method- can devise in the way
of business facilities and comfort.
Tho siock displayed just now is quite
in keeping with the occasion of the
opening, up for business this week of the
n.-vv building a- it .ompri-Jes new and

meeting. I have done my best to
straighten the thing out.
The Mayor—ll has included a very
considerable amount of extra work on

that satisfaction.
The matter then droP|ied.
BONDS.
Aid. MeKinnon said there was ii mat
ter he desired to bring up. He had
not talked it over with the rest of the
Bnanoe committee, more negligence on
his part, bin ii referred to bonds. He
thought the two men who colle.tod in
the city hull -hould l>e in bond for
$1000 each. He meant tb>' men who
handled cash every day. The expenee
would only l>e about J"' i^'i **|iHH) -o

time ho thought thai the a. ling city

though! iiiiii  r-o tie' fairest to ev«
eiyone  who handled  moiii'-.
Aid.   Horobin—Is  ii the intention  ..i
ih iihcil to mnke the appointment
of city clerk?
Aid. MiKinnon-aid he thought the
otlieinl- referred to ihauld lie bonded
in a bond company. The little aflair
ihey wero juRt through, with local hu
-'ines- men as Imn Isncn. wa-a veiy

Advices hy wire from San Francisco
to the effect that Aurelift Jose De
Santos, a Yukon sourdough, died in
the Golden Gate City, leaving a fortuuo
to bis half-breed daughter, Ignacia
S'hic, living somewhere on the s-horCR
of the Yukon or the MacKenzie
Rivers, has created considerable .interest among old timers. Tho story
is lhat Ue Santos remembered the girl
in his will, and the money is held by
order of Judge Graham, pending lhe
location of the child. Father Allard,
in charge of (ho Catholic churoh ut
Dawson, and Rev. John Hawksley, rector fm* lho Church of England, have
no knowledge of a girl by the name of
Ignacia Shic belonging lo any ol their
Yukon or MacKenzie missions or tribes connected with thc missions.
It seems hard to understand why it
should l>o possible lo say that wireless
telegraphy played little or no part in
connection with the severe storms on
the Great Lakes, which resulted in s'Uch
great, loss of life an;d the wrook of
many vessels. If the Oanadian govern
ment has loft undone anything that
aughl lo be done in regard ro i*equii*'
ing I lie installation of wireless on
vessels plying upon the lakes, it is to
be hoped lhal (here will be no further
delay.

Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, the president of the C.P.R., was for a time
greatly concerned over one of Ihe porters on his private car, wbo, although
an excellent servant, wus!given to the
use, under provocation, language not
suitable for general circulation. Warnings were of little uvail, and SirThom

( ue occasion Sir Thomus had Hon. S.
H. Blake as his guest on a Irip over
pari of the line,and the porter was
given speeial instructions as to his behavior. Unfortunately, however, ono
of the car cleaners happened careless'ly
to turn the hose close to an open window, andthe porter was sprinkled. Instantly ihe sluices of his vocabulary
were loosened, in spite of warnings of
t*ir Thomas, and even of Mr. Blake.
When he realized his offence, the port-

Berger-Dunn Nuptials
No wedding of the fall has caused
more interest in the city thau lhatof
Miss Teresa A. Berger and W.^T.
Dunn, which was solemniztd Wednesday afiernoon in Los Angeles.
Though ihe event was expected, the
date was now known, and when Mr.
Dunn and his bride registered at the
Bungalow hotel Thursday morning it
was met long before hearty congratu -
laiions were extended by a host of
friends-
Mr. Dunn's associates ut the hotel,
together with the cantaloupe distributers who are in town, at once besran
elaborate plans for the proper celebra
lion of the important event. S.Y.
Free, was appointed master of ceremonies and Mrs. George C Gay was
his able assistant. At dinner last
evening ns the happy Couple entered
the dining room there was an impressive sileni-c broken by tbo ringing of
the wedding bell, as they proceeded to
their table. The tones of the bell
were not such as to ask forthe pro -
lougation oi the sounds, as the chimes
were those of cow bells, daintily covered with white, but they served their
purpo-e well. From the electric fixtures overhead festons of white were
hung, fastened to the table by white
i o-''S. and thc oentArpieoe Was a large
bouquet of the -ame beautiful flowers.
As' Mr. and Mrs. Dunn seated themselves at the table reserved for them
the -iivn lone- of a fiaxon horn announced the opening of festivities.
Motto- pertinent to the occasion, suspended Iri'-fh   in   the   air, were  suddenly
dropped and dangled gleefully before
the eyes of the astonished bride and
groom.
A trio of colored musicians stationed oitside played and sang har-
njonious airs during  the dinner hour.
After the formal dinner was served
congratulations were extended in ap-
I ropi late speeches by Messrs. Free,
Hovley and Fielder, who spoke eloquently in German. References to
Mr. Dunn's long residence in the city,
(he respect and esteem in whieh he is
held, not only by business associates,
but by all who know liiin, The
bride and groom responded with felicitous remarks.
Mrs. Dunn is well known in Braw-
ley, ns she spent several months last
winter at the Bungalow hotel. Here
by her charming personality she made
many friends who are glad to welcome her ns a real resident of tbe city.
For several years she has made ber
home in Portland. Ore., with her sii-
ler. Here edie has been during the
past summer, coming recently to Los
Angeles where the wedding ceremony
occurred.
Mr.  Dunn is one of  Brawley's   pio -
neers.   He has   been   associated     with
the     Imperial Valley  bank for   many
yenrs,   first as   cashier and later      as
president.      Three years ago he organ-.
i?ed  the First  National  Bank and also '
became its preifident, holding both po-,
sitions at  the    present   time.   He has
' been prominent      in a'l    public     work
and is one of  the most  popular      men
ofthe valley.

moved to Bhnughnessy  Hoights.a fash-

has been notified by the I'rovincinl gov

LAURIER_ POLICY
Again Condemned.
The Borden attitude upon tho jiaval
question is being justified moro and
more as time progresses by men who
are expert in such matters. The latest. I
justification comes from Admiral Free-
mantle, of the Britinh navy, und one
of its most distinguished officers. On
the general Dominions' nuvul question
he states he is disposed lo treat lightly the alleged difficulty of a combina -
tion of Canadian or Australian squadrons in timo oi war. The Australian

ered at as a "tiupot navy" and is already a force to be reckoned with but
whether large oi small any squadrons

Centralists insist thut wheu Britain

ing loo. Free elance for Britain and
compulsory choke for the dominions?
The answer is "Certainly,'' and Laur-
•icr's tentative proposal forthe neulru- |
lily af Canada under certain condi -
lions is un impracticable chimera. An
Empire must "bear each other's burdens" not only in European complioa -
tions, but In the fishery or boundary

lt is believed this latter point will
hecomti more I'vidcnt as the question
of union for defence is further studied.
We may have federation, representa -
lion, co-operation, or union, but the
Empire must act in unison. Our dominions Ix'yond the seas have in peace

DISPUTES ACT
Efficiently Administered.
Last Saturday's Toronto Weekly-
Star under "Minister of Labor," contains at least one true statement. As
applicable to it no one will 'dispute the
assertion "the criticism of political op
ponents counts for little or nothing*"
—especially ns in the case where particular and facts are studiously avoided.
It is said that Mr. Orothers' sympathies are naturally wiih big business."—
As a htiije joke that will strike those
who know the Minister of Labor. Dili
he exhibit such sympathies when he
cut in two the prices oi .-chool books
in Ontario*' or when he secured the
reinstatement of the railway conduc -
tors and their back pay? or when he
had the machinists and boiler-makers
returned to work?
Mr. Orotbers hus always expressed
his sympathy with the principle oi

" THE GIRL IN THE TAXI."
The funnio-ities oi tho "Girl in the

the Empress theatre on Saturday night
Owing to the fact that the member.-
of the Chas. L. Falcon Coinpuny did
r.ot arrive in town until shortly be -
fore the advertised hour for a com-
mencement, the presentation was late
in starting. The outline of this lively
success is well known! The plot is of
the fitmziest, but ii serves as a peg
upon which to banj fun uf the last and
furious order. The various charai ter*
were well portrayed ond special men-
t ton must be made of Marguerite Leas-
ure as the French maid, Aileen Morris

Marguerite Leasure wen- >deservedly ap

insisted upon.

This is the longest run ever known
for a musical comedy in New York nnd
when it is considered that six weeks of

years, the record is all the more as-

American productions rarely if ever
appeal to our foreiirn cousins, and especially an American play with a foreign atmosphere, such as the "The Pink
