Gibbons Lumber Company's mill at
Pingston creek, when the foremen,
Thos. Beecber Mettherall lost his life
through being caught in tho conveyor
belt and hurled against the ceiling.
No one saw the accident happen, so
tbe cause is a mystery. Something
went wrong with the carriage nnd
deceased rushed downstairs to attend
to it It is supposed he took a shortcut by jumping through the conveyoi
belt in which he got caught with the
fatal result. When the bi dy was
picked up the skull was found to hiive
been fractured by tbe violence with
which deceased was dashed againBt
the timbers overhead. Deceased was
«n experienced millwright and a careful niau. He was an old employee of

years, and was at tbe Pingston Creek
mill for 14 months previously. He
was 38 years of age and unmarried.
He came from Cape Wolf, Prince

running between New York and
Chicago, was wrecked at Obewton, Pu
Tbe train ollicials claim that the
wreck was caused by bends who removed two fishplates from the tracks
and removed tbe spikes for a rail
length. Bloodhounds arrived here
to-day hot on the trail ol the perpetrators ol the wreck. The dogs picked
up the scent from the handle of a
sledge hammer found in a Held near
tbe scene of the disaster. The bloodhounds reached a slaughter house in
lhe outskirts ol tho village after leading the pursuing posse straight lo the
Frame cattle killing plint. In tbe
ynrd of the place the dogs hesitated

Visited by Two Tourists After a
Hazardous Trip
The interesting news has cume this
week that the North Pole has been
actually visited by Dr. Frederick A.
Cook, o! Boston, and Peary the explorer. The reports by these men of
their achievements are credited iu
scientific circles. Dr. Cook reports
finding land at the locution of the
pole. Dr. Cook, who had twenty-six
dogs and two Esquimaux, made a
dash ol 460 miles to the North Pule
after traversing 240 miles, establishing
relief stations and fuod depots along
tbe route. Ttie dash was commenced
in August, P.I07, the Pole was reached
April 21, 1008. The trip back required
eighteen months.
Maurice Egan, the U, S. Minister at
Copenhagen, has telegraphed the Btaie
department that Dr. Cook's reported
discovery at the North Pole Iuib been
corroborated by Dergaard Janstn, the
Danish inspector of North Greenland.

The improvement nf the Revel*

p hou Kl have tin- urgent attention
of tin- city council, While the
supply lm''   been K'">'l up till this
summer the ^rrnwili nf ihu city is
making demands on tlie water
supply which it is no longer capable of meeting. An increased
supply is required, A- noted in ii
recent i-stie there are two sources
ol supply known to be available,
and there may he others. At all
events the dry season is ihe time in

a very complete report on the cost
of bringing in a supply from Eight
Mile Creek, and this survey having
already been made there is no
necessity of Further expense in
connection therewith at present.
Greely Creek provides another
source of supply that hits not been
investigated, and the chief advantage of which would lie the reduced
cost ol utilising this supply. There
iH another stream which Hows
north-east from the glacier on Mi.
Clachnacooden which might, be
considered. Still another alternative is the const ruction of a large
reservoir in tlie valley of Bridge
Creek, which provides the present
supply. 'I his meek drains a calch-
nienl luisin which, with proper
reservoir accommodation, oould
furnish ample water for a city ten
ten times the size of Hevelstoke.
The ens! nf a reservoir to collect
and hold a six weeks' supply in
reserve might therefore lie considered, anil then compared with
that of utilising the other sources.
A reliable supply of water is one of
the, most necessary adjuncts of a
city whether considered from the
sanitary necessities of the people
or as a matter of lire protection.
Revelstoke lias lieen exceptionally
fortunate so far in lhat ils water
supply lias cost little compared
witli other cities. The time has
now come however, when the improvement of the service is necessary and the cost has to be faced.
great support and recruiting ground
ol llie parent club will be found in
the local clubs, such as the Revelstoke Mountaineering Cluh, which
has already done some good local
work in providing a chalet at Protection Lake for tlie accommodation of visitors to tlie park on Mt.
Revelsloke. Rossland antl Nelson
are, we are glad to see, taking up
tbe question of forming local Alpine clubs, The more of these
organizations the more effective
will he llie means of advertising
the mountains of liritish Columbia
as the world's playground and of
attracting in this Switzerland of
Norih America tlie hordes of mountaineers anil tourists that yearly
seek the best holiday retreats that
mother earth affords,

The increase in the customs re
turns of the port of Revelstoke indicates returning prosperity nnd
improved conditions and is one of
the best evidences of the steady
growth of this city ami district.
The point made bv the visiting
lire chiefs, lhat a central Ure hall

more ellicient nnd economical tire
lighting service, is one lh.it both
the city fathers anil citizens would
do well to note. Tlie question is

is one Unit should have attention

Mining Expert Considers Revelstoke Prospects Bright
Mr. W. O. Young, M.E., the mining
expert who is representing the Guggenheim interests in British Columbia,
has been investigating property around
RevelBtoke Ior over a year, and in conversation with bim we gather that ho
has formed au exceedingly high opinion ol the prospects of the RevelBtoke
dietrict (rom a mining point ol view.
He has been in the Big Bend, where
he took in the gold-bearing quartz
veins ol Ground-Hog Basin. He ib
now returning to tbat section with
the intention ol making a trip to
Mica Creek to examine tbe mica
claims in wbicli J. Moore anil Fred
Anderson are interested.
Mr. Young spent some time examining tiie lllecillewaet leOtiOD and
although mining in lhat country cast
ol Revelstoke is at present dead, be
regards it as one ol tbe beat mineral
sections be has Been. The Waverley
be regards us a valuable property and
be has alao a very high opinion ol tbe
old Lanark, whose proximity to the
railway makes it a property specially
well located Irom a transportation
point ol view.
Fish Creek is, in Mr. Young's opinion, sure to prove a valuable mineral
section, and tlie splendid gold quartz
deposits of Lexington Mountain are
not appreciated as they should be.
The Evening Star group of mines nt
Kamloops bus been bonded by W, F.
Hedley, ol New York and work will
start about Octobor 1.
