The mayor  and
were present  with
Aid. Pradoliu..
The mayor read a letter fiom K.
Kdwaids, acting government agent, in
which be stated that they had seen the
plans foitlie apron to carry the sewage
over the mattress on the river bank
and added that if the city took any
sieps without authority from the
public works engineer they would he
liable for damages, and they would be
prevented by force if necessary from
Interfering with gi vernment property.
"1 consider Ihis," said .Mayor Lindmark, an uncalled for and aggravating
"ll is certainly not called for," said
Aid. Wells.
Aid. .McUona'd said the premier and
the minister of public works would be
hole on the following day and it should
he taken up with tbem,
The mayor said while tbey were
dealing with this question of sewerage
be would read a letter he had written
to the Revelstoke Land Co. The letter
asked for permission to iun the sewers
through Lots 7 and 8, Block 100, and
requested a conference on the question
of a site for the septic tank, and the
diversion of a stream in the centre of
the city on which the company beld a
water record.
Be also read a leply be had received
from the company as follows:
Revelstoke. June 21. 1900.
C. P. Lindmark, Esq.
Mayor, City of Revelstoke.
Dear sir, At a meeting of the directors of the Hevelstoke Land Co. Ltd.,
held on the 21st inst.. when ypur letter of even date was read, I was Instructed lo reply to your letter as
He Lots 7 and 8, Block 100. Thai I be
city be allowed to run sewer pipes
through Lots 7 und 8 in Block 100, free
uf charge, on entering into an agreement to pay for any damage that maybe done to said lots'in the const ruction
anil for any damage Unit may be done
at any future time, and thai the city
pay any expenses in connection with
drawing up agreements, etc.
He Septic Tank Site. That in respect In the land asked for for septic
tank site, the Company lake exception
to ibe threat nf expropriation made in
ymir lirst and only communication on
Ihe suhiccl. but since yuu take that
attitude It might be advisable for you
to proceed iii lhal manner if you have
power to do so,
He Water Record. Witb reference
to your request us to the terms on
which this Company would relinquish
Iheir rights iu their water record,
granted to tbem in WW, I am directed
Fo siiv that Iheland in respect to which
the Wilier was granted has been subdivided and the greater portion has
been sold In ulbcr parlies, whu purchased Iiiiiii llie Company on the un-
deutandlng thai when the land was
clewed and mode ready for cultivation,
a supply of wrier for Irrigation purposes wuuld be available under ibis
water record, and one of the purchasers bus in past years, made use of this
water for such' purposes, and several
ul the uiMieis  of Ibe land bave   made
demand on the Land Company to protect their rights nnd furnish them with
ii supply   nf  water  for the purpose of
Irrigation, and theO puny is taking
■tepa to do so. i mill these circumstances you iun readily see thai Ibis
Company oan  not, withoul involving
ilsell ill litigation wilh these purchasers i.f land who have acquired a legal
interest in the water, relinquish the
water record withoul the written oon>
sent uf all those who acquired the laud
under the above conditions. I may
add that tbisCumpaiiyslill holds lauds
iu which they  Blder the water record of value.
I   ben  to  remind  you  thai  on the
C pany  learning of ymir proposed
diversion nf the creeksln quest iun, the
Secretary  of  this Company informed
yuu nf t he existence iif I be water recurd
held by ibis Company and suggested
lhal steps lie taken to adjust the matter with parlies Interested, but your
letter of the 21sl   inst.. is the lirst and
only c unlcatlon the Company has
baa from vou on the suejeot.
I uui als.i directed to poinl out Hint
this C pany and other owners of land
Uu del inn OU lhe creeks  have riparian
rights  which  would  not be affected
even il the water record were Kiirrend-
eicd with the consent of all parlies
com i Hied.   Yours truly,
A. E. Kini aid, Secy.
The mayor commenting on t he letter
■aid In did nnl think the water record
Waa really needed us the land in question wa- sub-Irrigated by the nver,
and hy Augui.1 there was no water lu
the stream, A Dumber of the men interested had told him they would not
be blithered with the water, as they
would prefer to dig a well on their own
luud. The stream was a source of danger to ibe city. The men working
there now complained of the stench
from dead animals lying in it, and it
was most unhealthy. The sewerage
was being done on plans prepared two
years ago, and niusl, go on, ns part of
• he townsite was honeycombed with
cesspools and be knew of two hotels,
thai unless Ihey could gel   connection
soon, would be compelled to close up.
He did not see how anyone in the city
could block the work: the citizens
would not stand for it.
"Tbey can't stop it." said Aid. Wells
and the Others agreed.
The mayor said the city solicitor was
working on the question and us soon
as they got furl her advanced ho would
repnrt. In lhe meantime the sewerage
work was going on.
Alderman Kimberley asked what
about the septic tank.
'I'he mayor said th.'y could take expropriation proceedings and have the
tank started In a few days, hut be
would prefer to setlle the matter in
another way if possible. He promised
to bring the whole matter up with the
premier and the minister of public
works to-day.
A letter from the General Electric
Company asking for payment on the
gas producer was Hied. The mayor
said that In conversation with him, the
expert had admitted that he was not
specially satisfied with the engine. He
therefore considered that since the
machine was still under lest, no further action should be taken hy the
council at this time.
In reference to a complaint from
Gillan & Elliott as to the condition of
the Hig Bend road ir a ceitain place,
the mayor said the plans for the crossing were lieing prepared by the engineer and would be submitted lo the
railway commission indue time.
Aid. Stone asked if there was any
ch,nice of the government doing part
of the work.
The mayor said lhe government
agent had spoken favorably about il
and promised Lo consult with the
City Electrician North reported that
the cost of wiring tbe new wing of the
Victoria Hospital would he considerably iii excess of previous estimates,
The mayor said that lasl year's council had promised to stand the cost of
wiring, but he hardly knew what it
was estimated at then. 'lhe cily had
ma le arrangements for free treatment
for hospital patients on condition that
the hospital was exempt from charges
for light, water and taxes, 1ml the
doctors had sued them for $6for medical treatment and they had to pay
that aud $4 costs besides. The only
patients to be treated free were destitute people. There had been none for
some months and only three last year
for a short time. In any new business
they must square up old accounts and
made an agreement to save trouble in
The mayor, Aids. Sawyer and Macdonald were appointed a committee to
consult with the board of trade on
their request for a donation of $150
towards placing a fruit exhibit at the
Oalgary Pair.
'I'he request of the HevelsloKe Independent Band for $200 for open air
playing was granted, though lhe
mayor said they had been unusually
late in coming forward this year.
Lasl year Ihey played once a week
fiom May on.
Aid. Sawyer explained thai the
weather had been backward, and besides that live of their hest players bad
left and they bad to break in new men
They would try to give weekly concerts now.
A proposal to amend the Sunday
Closing Bylaw by acting on the resolution of the police commissioners,
lhat during closing hours nil hotel
keepers be made to keep a| blind
open in lhe window during the day
and a light burning during the night
su thai a pulice ollieer could see clearly
inside, was twice submitted to a vote,
but ended only in a tie, the mayor and
Aids. Sawyer and Kimbeily voling fur
the resolution, and Wells, Stone and
Macdonald against.
Aid. Stone, iu discussing the mat ter,
said lhat if Ibe amendment wen-
passed the city should pay fur the
light al nigbl.
Aid. Wells said he thought it was a
nml ion ill advance of lhe limes, 'I'he
moral tone of the town did not call for
Tho mayor suid il was a unanimous
resolution of lhe police commissioners
lhal this should be passed. The
chief of police hud reported to I hem
thut they bud known men to he in u
barroom, bul when the police tried
to enler the door was slammed in
Iheir faces. There could be no
objection In Ihe amendment from
lhi'hotel keeper who wanted lo keep
Ills bur rinsed and obey the law.
Aid. Macdonald said the present
Sunday closing bylaw ahould be enforced befure going further,
'I'he mayor said ii was butter lu take
this  measure  nuw  than   allow   ibe
salium   keepers   lu   break   lhe law   so

But the mul ler did mil get beyond

$7,500 for Capture of Train
Robbers-Northwest Mounted
Police in Pursuit.—They Are
Still at Large.
The police are still hot on the chase
of the men who held up the express
train near Ducks lust Monthly night,
On Thursday morning ten Northwest
mounted police pusucd through (rom
Culgary in charge of Sergeant Wilson,
the nmn who rounded upNiner's gang
on the lust occasion, They had horses
with them and were evidently prepared for a long chime.
The Provinolal Government ia out
with a reward uf $2,.ri00 for tbe capture of the robbers, aud the C.I'.R.
has offered $5,000, thus making $7,500
Four men in a boat on the water,
near Ducks, were rounded up by
Sheriff W. B\ Woods, of Kamloops, on
Wednesday last, but all were able lo
give satisfactory accounts of the movements, and- alter questioning the
sheriff releaecd them. Four horses
that had been taken from a stable
belonging to a chicken ranch near-by,
on the night ol the robbery, have been
A Revelstoko citizen, who has visited
the scene of the hold-up, says that it
took place at Ned's creek, near I'em
herton Siding. The spot was particularly well selected as there are at that
point throe good trails leading to the
south, and the robbers would be able
to travel u long distauce beforo they
could be intercepted.
The Mounted Police who went
through on Thursday, divided into two
detachments, one at Bucks and one at
Kamloops, and started out on the
chase with Indian trackers and bloodhounds to assist them.
In the meantime all kinds of rumors
are afloat. It was said yesterday morning that five men answering such des
criptions aB bad been given of the
robbers, had been captured near
Ashcroft, but late yesterday afternoon
Supt. Kilpatrick said he had heard
nothing of it, and it is not likely that
it is true. There is another story that
the train may have been held up by
rnncliciH around Ducks and Kamloops,
but this appears highly improbable.
Still further, there are persons in
RevelBtoke who say they saw two suspicious looking characters dining at a
restaurant here this morning after tbe
robbery. Tbey have not seen these
men since and are wondering whether
tbey had anything to do with it.
Strawberry Festival
Tbe Ladies' Aid of the Methodist
Church in carrying out the program
for tbeir annual strawberry festival on
Thursday had to contend in theearlier
part of tbe day witb a wet sky aod a
cold breeze, but they went on with
their preparations undismayed and
when the weather cleared in the afternoon wero rewarded with the attend
ance of a large crowd of all ages.
Everything offered in tbe way of home
made cooking, ice cream, strawberries
and cream, witb accompaniments ol
hot tea and coffee, was as good aB tbe
most fastidious could desin.
Tbe Independent band added to the
attraction by discoursing beautiful
music ill tbe evening, which in conjunction with the strings of colored
lights on the lawn gave a festal air to
the entertainment. The best thanks
of the ladies are Ireely offered to the
band for their services and to the
Mayor and Mra. Lindmark for the use
ol thoir houBC and lawn.

thru timt "■ itbin the past live
yeara in Uritish i lolumbia, of all
the provinces in Canada, is u circumstance that Bhould make us
pause. We were wont to boast
thnt bere In Canada we were Ine
from many of those forms of law
lessnese that too often pro vail on
the uther Bide of ti c border; hut
ihould these outrages continue the
linger of scorn mny soon be pointed
the other way. The fact that Uritish Columbia has I n Beleoted as
the scene of these escapades is in
itself no discredit to the Government of the Province or the Canadian Pacilio Railway company; it
i- ilue rather to the fact that tbe
rugged topography of the country
affords a vast covert, for the perpetrators to escape from the ollicers
of the law. In the thickly Bottled
portions of eastern Canada such
actions could never lie dreamed of;
in the more thinly settled but open
stretches of the plains the eyes of
the farmers and ranchers, scanning
eagerlv every human form that
comes in sieht. would shed a li^ht
upon iheir trail that would guide
lhe chase and facilitate the arrest;
hui here the high hills, the bush
lands, the rivers and lakes provide
an ambush for approach and conceal the traces of retreat.
The fact thai these conditions
exist in Brit sh Columbia, however,
only proves the need for extraordinary precaution, ii the province is
to maintain that reputation for
safety in travel which other portions of the Dominion enjoy. What
form these precau'ions should take
il is dillicult for n layman to sny:
but it docs seem lhal if ihose whose
hnsiness it is to enforce the law
would give the matter long and
earnest thought, some system of
patrol or signalling might be devised by which the danger of such
occurrences would at least be
It is to be regretted that an unthinking portion of the community
appears ready to excuse the wrongdoing in admiration for the boldness with which it is executed.
This trait came most strongly in
evidence when the notorious Bill
Miner and r. handful of other
criminals sneaked out of the New
Westminster penitentiary about
three years ago. It was stated
openly by many who should have
known better that if Miner had
come their way, they would have
assisted him to escape Irom the
ollicers of the law—from the very
men whom Ihey were paying to
protect them frum the depredations
of scoundrels of the Miner type.
They held up Miner a- a modern
Robin Hood wh" Btole only from
the rich; but when that desperado
was rilling the  t
i mail   car   or  holding up a stage
coach, we doubt very much whi
he paused to  discriminate between
the   "lilueiit     und     the   common

Editor -M \o.-Ilio; ii.u.
Sin. I notice iii yuur paper of Wednesday a letter Higticd by W. W. Foster, similar lo une addressed to the
Police Commissioners. The letter must
have reached your ullice lung before
ihe ollicial document reached the Oity
Hall. I may add lhat the communication does not sound as coming from
une wilh the dignity of the pulice
magistrate to uphold, hut smacks
rather of the politician.
The statements dealing with the case
ul' ex-oflicer Terry arc fully covered by
the letter rend before the Police Oom-
inissiineis anil signed by Chief Bain
mul already published. The teller
mentioned slates that ex-nllicer Terry
complained lo llie ohief that "lie had

..ive nn explanation.
As in ihe uexi insinuation, I may
sny that there were three specials
sworn in nn citrus day, and il was
their duty, under the chiel' of pulice,
lu eiifibirc the law■•    The several   e -
plaints thai Mr, Foster says were made
lo bim through the day, among them
one ul' lhe lu-s ul' a sum of money at n
gambling sideshow, accompanied with
the statement that complaint of this
huil heen made In the mayor, "who is
incident ially the chairman of your
committee, would leave the impression thai I had ignored the complaint.
The I ids aie I hui ill OiHO o'clock at
night. -\Uii ii-k. ih" complainant, came
to me wilh lhe story of his loss. I
went wilh him I., lhe spot where lie
said il had taken place. The tent was
already pulled down, and Aldrick did
not know the name of the man who
bad robbed bim. So far as taking
legal action was concerned, he was
down and out, bul I went with him to
the train tn see if we cuuld recover,
though I might have easily let the
matter drop. In this connection, I
may ask why iiiil not Mr. Foster, who
had received the same complaint, act
as he did in the other case and put the
powerful machinery of his mighty intellect to wurk to assist Aldrick?
As to the statement that "gambling
waa up.ailv allowed," it is false. Circus
sideshow men are clever enough to
elude the law ocasionally and catch a
victim in spite of the shrewdest police,
Iiul i here wn al no time open gambling,

More bread and Better bread
 And the Reason for it
*» be made from sirong wheat,
Manitoba hard wheat is acknowledged the strongest in the world—
and that is the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Kvery grain
of this wheat contains both high-
grade and low-grade properties.
In separating lhe high-grade parts
from the low-grade the Western
Canada Flour Wills put the hard
wheat through a process so exacting
that not a single low-grade part
has the remotest chance of getting
iu with the high-grade.
Of course thin special process is
more expensive lo operate but it
means ;i It.I to Purity flour users—
that's why we use it.
It means that Purity Flour is
made entirely of the highest-grade
flour parts of the strongest wheat
iu the world.
It moans a high-class, strong flour
nud therefore yields "more bread
and butter bread."
Purity may cost a little more
than some flours, but results prove
it the cheapest and must economical after all.

number ot years, it has annually pru

managing director, undertook the first

Last week the Huston cumpany pre
sented at the Winnipeg theatre, and
tlie able musical critic of the Tribune
gives the following account of "II
Truvature,'' which will be the bill in
Kevelstoke Monday nigbt:
"Wbile '11 Trovatore" is a long way
Irom being tbe grandest of Verdi's
operas, it is undoubtedly the most
popular of them all, and yet on reading the story ot his life one finds that
his failures outnuinbend his succes;
but, triumphs like "Bigoletto," "Jt
Trovatore," 'La Tr.iviati," "Aida,"
"Othello" and "FalstatV," outweigh
many failures. The three uperaa first
named in the above list have oue
supreme merit in addition o tlieir
abnormal nielilluuusiiess—tbey prefigure the latter, Verdi, the truer
musical dramatist, and are distinguished from his early operatic wurks hy a
nobler treatment ol ihe separate numbers, sharper cliarper characterization
of the personages, more solid instrumental, a melodic beauty lull of temperament and more artistic harmonics.
To Rigoletti, in 1861, must we go back
searching lor the routes ot the mature
Verdi, and, iu the declanniory monologues o! the hunchback, jester will
he found the more nitelp-uiual germs
und subleties ol "lago' nnd "Flag-
stair." "II Travatore," as produced by
the Boston Grand Opera Company,
last night at the Winnipeg theatre,
also contains strong dramatic situations, and, if the tower scene Ins become hackneyed, how splendidly is
the episode devised. In this much
admired and much sung opera are to
be found harmonic straws, which go
to iudicate those master pieces ot
musical workmanship ot his later
years, aad it really does siein a pity
lhat "Aida" at least is not lo be induced iu the fortnights repertoire.
"Tbe performance of 11 Trovatore by
the members of the Boston Grand
Opera Co. waa such as tc comnieud
itself to every music lever in thij city,
it leaves no loophole fur adverse criticism as there was not a weak spot in
the vocal interpretation, the shortcomings belong to tlie instrumental
accompaniments presented by local
musicians, but a few more drillings
given to tbis department by the Musi
cal Director, Siguur B. E. Erauciui,
will show a marked improvement.
"There was a large, to mu a trile
phrase, and fashionable midline.! present, whu iilmust went wild with enthusiasm, on hearing the favorite
solos, duets, inns, quartettes, and
choruses so beautifully sung. Encores
were frequently demanded, but tbe
strenuous nature of the singe work
precluded any response in the majority
ol instances, but the clumur lor the
repetition of tlie .Miserere episode became tu persistent I but it was sung all
over again.
"In Madame Judith M. Francini
the audience last night heard the true
Italian prima donna soprano. As
Lcnora she not only acted with pas
sinuate power, hut evinced a beautiful
oicc and breath control, with u daz-
ling lechuic that ccines with long
years of training, finished in every detail. It she was excellent in the cava-
tine 'The Night was Calm,'she was
quite superb in the lust act,  in which
she shared honors with that splendid
tenor Signor Gherardi. In the emotional ducts witli Mcnricu (tenor) and
llie Count di Luna (baritone), Madame
Franoinl waa eminently satisfactory.
"Signora Greca Iticci, who sang tlie
role ut Aziiceua, showed a remarkable
voice ul rich contralto color, with the
range of a soprano, and she reinforces
ber singing wilh such complete nud
resourceful vocal ait that there ia uot
simile   nl   feeling   which   she ctuiiiul
seemingly express In sung. Her pathetic notes iu "llunie lo our Mountains" wore sad and sorrowful in (Ile
extreme of poignant intent     The Big-
niira is a veritable source ol  strength
iu the enncerted numbers,
"No belter operatic tcniir has been
heard in this city than Siguur Glicr-
nrdi, once a member ol the Savage
forcea in their palmy days. Ot tbis
vncalist it. may be Iruly said, that be
came, be saw, and conquered highly
critical auditors, aud he lias leaped in
one single nighi. into local popularity.
lie is au operatic singer par excellence
and one whu sustained the best traditions of the character he purtraycil,
Nanricu, wilh unvarying brilliancy.
"At times lie ruse to heights ol real
tragedy, particularly in lhu famous
last act, in which revealed lugical purpose and vehement sincerity. Signor
Gherardi will be it most valuable ac
quisitioii to any opera company, nnd
it is a fmliiiinte ntiiiiirrence that Wit:
nipeg Theatre audiences are privileged
lu hear him.

Great West Permanent  Loan
and Savings Co.
Among Hie inosl hcnllhyand promising features of tho trade, commercial
and lliiaiieial situation in Canada at
present is tlie slowly formed anil slroiii;
conviction of economics of wide experience, steady and reliable methods, and
ripe practical judgment, that, hairing
accidents and wild, imprudent specual-
Ing, lhe prospects for the present year
are much more than usually blight.
With an increased area under cultivation ill the west, and with crop conditions us favorable as I hcv have ever
lieen at I his season of the year, the outlook is regarded in all quarters as inosl
promising.   It is peculiarly gratifying
to notice the extent In which lhe national situation is dominated by the
crop situation In the west, and if fulluws almost us a nccessaiy oonsoquonoe
thai. Ilnaiicial undertakings In tne west
should secure an amount of support in
the business world proportionate lu
Ilia great extent and  I lie high aud in-
creaslng Importance of the rich tor-
rltory in which they operate, 'i'he

Revelsluke ollb it Kirsl sireet, under
the. miimigcmeiii uf W. II. Robertson,
and au Influential advisory buard in
liritish Columbia, Manitoba and the
Territories, fully illustrates this fact,
as the reader will lind un reference to
Hie sixth annual report, The president, in his report 10 the hoard of

■si.miinl progress, The older 'ind wealthier lhe Wesi beCOl , the mole will
Ihe people reah/.e lhal   lhe West is ill
need of western Institutions, controlled
and financed by western men and
western oapital.'
The company had ii great demand
for money tituitig lhe pas! year and is
now able to show an increase of Ud),-
800,60 on lirst mint gages The profit
and loss account shows lhal, after pio-
\ idlng for the cost of management, the
earnings lor the vear iiiuotinled to
.jkmiod.iIH, an Increase of 812,947,47
over tlie previous year, enabling the
company lo pay two half-yearly divi
dends al the rate of 0 per cent, per annum, while eaiiying over $130,1147.07
to the reserve fund. A careful and
wise policy in I be selection of loans has
doubtless contributed materially to the
success of the company. The subscribed capital of tbe company
amounts to $2,360,000, mid the paid-up
oapital and reserve to $1,800,000. It Is
as well in add, perhaps, that the company has secured a Dominion charter
and all the incidental advantages
