,   JBSTANTIAL ASSISTANCE
Government Will Investigate all
Particulars
A meeting of the Board of Trade
was held on Wednesday night to con
sider the telegram sent by the Provin-
ciil Government to T, Taylor, M.P.P.,
in connection with the Columbia and
Canoe rivers route to the Grand Trunk
railway construction, which reply was
promised to the R velstoke delegation
at their recent visit to the government at Victoria. The substance of
the telegram wae that the government
have decided to give the facts re road
communication to the G T.P., submitted by yourself and delegation, a
thorough investigation with a view of
ascertaining to what extent supplies
will be purchased in this province, also
what assurances of this may be given
to the government and further iib to
wbat route within British Columbia
may be selected fur their transport
If answer favorable the government
will be prepared to consider a scheme
with a view to graining cub-tan
tial assistance towards construction.
The telegram was signed by Dr.Young,
provincial secretary.
Tl>e government hnve appaiencly
given lho Maine answer to all three
delegations and as Mr. Mc Bride said:
"It seems lo me lhat the lirst thing to
be settled ia t he accuracy of the report
that these G.T.P. contractors really
intend to bring in their supplies
through British Columbia territory;
and then it will be quite competent
for us to examine tbe matter of making an extraordinary expenditure
And I am quite satisfied that in the
absi nre of specific evidence of that
kind it would lie a very difficult thing
indeed not to come to the conclusion
that it would be unwise to make in
the meantime any expenditure on any
one of the three suggested roads,
either from Golden,or from Bevelstoke
or from Kamloops."
R. M. R. INSPECTION
Gen. Lake Compliments E Co.—
Presentation to Capt. Brown.
£ Company, B. M. B., paraded on
Wednesday for inspection by Gen.
Lake, on tbe Gun Club grounds, tbe
full strength of the company being
represented. Tbey made a fine appearance and were complimented by
the inspector general on tbeir carriage
and military bearinir. This ordeal
being finished, to tbe satisfaction of
the general, whose keen eye missed
nothing as he and tbe company
marched to the rifle range at 2 p.m.
for si ciiou shooting, the members of
eai'.h section doing excellent work at
various distances at half target, the
scores making a fine shewing. Gen.
Lake then addressed the men, saying
that the company had done very well,
but showed the disadvantage of having
to do their drill in the hall. He advised the ollicers and men to drill
more in the open, even if done in
moonlight. He highly complimented
tbem un the shooting
A dance was held in the evening in
the drill ball, about 60 couples being
pre-ent. The decorations were ex-
ce-dingly tastelul and the hall presented an attractive and gala like
appearance. A pleasing feature of the
event was tbe presentation by Capt,
B. Smitb, on behalf of tbe company,
to retiring Capt. H. A. Brown, of a
handsome silver salad bowl, suitably
engraved. Capt. Brown in expressing
bis appreciation of tbe gift said tbst
be felt keenly leaving the company,
being interested in tbe work, but was
glad to know it would be in good
bands under Capt. Smith. Light refreshment were served by tbe men
and dancing kept up till tbe early
hours.
CAREFUL REPORTING
The Following Will Show One
Side of Journalism.
Said the editor to the new reporter,
'You must learn never to state a
thing as a fact until it has been proved
a fact. You aie apt tu get us into
libel sure. Oo not say, 'The cashier
stole the funds'; say 'The cashier is
alleged to have stolen tbe funds.'
That's all. Ob, get something about
the First Ward social tonight." And
this is the report turned in by the
young man who heeded tlie editor's
warning: "It is rumored that a card
party was given laat evening to a
number ol reputed ladies of the First
Ward. Mrs. Smith, gossip says, was
the hostess, and tbe festivities are
reported to have continued until 11.30
in the evening. Tbe alleged hostess
ia believed tu be -the wile of John
Smith, the so called ' high-priced '
grocer,"
FRU1T AND LUMBER FOR FAIR
British  Columbia Will    Send
Exhibits to Calgary
British Columbia will have a fine
fruit, and lumber exhibit at the Dominion fair at Calgary. Exhibits,
especially of fruit and lumber, are
being assembled in Vancouver and
will be ready to leave bere on June 22.
The Fair will open on June 29. The
exhibit i. being sent on instructions
of Hon. K G. Tatlow, Minister of
Finance and Agriculture, and will be
in charge of Mr. B. M Palmer, chief
of the provincial bureau of information, and Mr. W. J. Brandrith of the
fruit department, us his assistant.
The fruit exhibit will he particularly complete. The lumber, chiefly
samples of polished British Columbia
wood which forms a permanent exhibit
at Victo ia, will he supplemented bv a
number of specially prepared lamples
by a Vancouver sawmill concern. Both
fruit and lumber from the City of
Nelson will be picked up at Bevelstoke on the way tn Calgary.
BEE-KEEPERS COMPLAINT
Spraying  Fluid on   Blossoms
Kills the Bees.
Local fruit growers and bee keepers
are making protests against the spraying of fruit trees during the time that
the blossoms arc on tbe trees.
The Provincial government authorities are carrying on a campaign against
fruit pests and it is stated counselling
steady spraying. The result ia that
bees in their quest for honey have
been poisoned, and it may be that a
honey famine will follow this summer,
in many parts of the province.
Not only have the bees sickened, hut
many have died, with depletion of
hives in some instances. The fruit
grower stated that be understood that
there was a Dominion regulation
against spraying trees during tbe time
tbe blossom was on the tree, and that
action could bo taken against people
wbo did it.
BIG WARSHIP
New Leviathan Ordered by the
British Admiralty
London, June 19—The admiralty,
having eclipsed the Dreadnought class
of  battleships by the St. Vincent, will
according to   the   Telegraph, start in
September to eclipse the latter, laying
down at Portsmouth a new leviathan
with   heavier  armament   and greater
displacement.    The St. Vincent,whirl]
will be lauuehed 111 October, 1909, is of |
19,250 tons and cost about £1,500,000.
The new battleship will probably be of
21,000 tone and will cost £2,250,000.
She   is   intended to be completed for
sea in 18 months after her keel is laid
It is   stated tint she will have two
novel features.   Instead of 12 incliers,
which are now the largest guns used
in the  fleet, she will mount weapons
of the new 13.5 type, which have been
for   eome   time the subject of  experiment.     The other feature, the Telegraph understands, will  be her equipment with gas engines, by using which
no smoke will  be made and therefore
the new ship   will   bave   no  funnels.
The paper recalls that Mr. McKccluiie
of Nickers Sous and Maxim, announced some time ago  thit the firm had
developed  the  gas   engine  to such a
Btage that it could   bu employed ou a
warship.     It   says  the admiralty en-
sincd  iT.rii considering
anil     apparently   havo
gineers   have
this   engine
adopted it.
caterpillars Stop Train.
New Westminster, June 19.—That
the humble caterpillar can stop even
a C. P. B. train is no flight of tbe
imagination, but a serious proposition
to roodmaslers and section gangs on
tbe division weet of Yale. Since the
warm weather began these pests of
tbe horticulturist, uud so full of
promise to the student uf entomology,
have multiplied exceedingly on the
tracks, where the heat encourages
tlieir development. At night myriads
swarm on the "head" of the rails,
and the warmth keeps them there till
a passing train deals out death and
destruction. Tbeir bodies so grease
tbe rails that several times last week
the train crews failed to make tbe
rising grades till the metals bad teen
well Banded. Tbis was the case on
Friday evening near Mission, when
several traius were stalled. The phenomenon, according to railway men.
ie by no means uncommon in tropical
climates.
TENDERS FOR G. T. P. LINE
Contracts Will not be Awarded
Till Latter Part of June.
Montreal, June 19.—Frank W.
Morse, vice-president and general
manager of tbe Grand Trunk Pacific,
left Montreal last night for Western
Canada. He has been looking into
tenders recently received for the construction of the first hundred miles
west from Wolf Creek, in the Rockies
but prior to his departure no decision
had been arrived at as to whom tho
contract should be swarded. Tenders
have been invited for another section
of 79 miles west of the above mentioned
section, and these tenders to be all in
by June 22. No decision will be announced until these have been received.
N. B. SOCIETY SE..SATI0N
Lieut. Gov. Tweedie's Daughter
Makes Runaway Match.
St. John, N. B„ June 19.—Hon. Mr.
Tweedie, Lieutenant-Governor of New
Brunswick, and Mrs. Tweedie, who
were in the city yesterday attending
the wedding of tbe daughter of Hon.
F. E. Baker, Chief Justice of tlie province, met with a disagreeable surprise when they left the church, when
tbey learned by telephone tbat their
daughter, Mary, bad made a runaway
match at St. Stephen, N. B., eloping
with Mr. David McKeown. The gentleman in the case came from Scotland,
and bad become attached to Miss
Tweedie. Miss Tweedie is 19 years
old, and tbe bridegroom a few years
older.
Mrs. Tweedie was prostrated by the
news of the marriage.
PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION
Taft and Sherman the Republican Ticket
Chicago, June 19.—For president of
the United States, Win. H. Taft, of
Ohio, on the first ballot by 702 votes.
Taft by unanimouj choice of the convention. Such is tlie record of the
culminating day of the Republican
national convention of 1908, effected
amid scenes of tumultous enthusiasm
and after a nerve-racking continuous
session   lasting   nearly   eight   hours.
Congressman James S. Sherman of
New York, was nominated for vice-
president of the Uuited States by the
Republican national convention on
tbe first ballot. The total vote was:
Sherman 816, Murphy 77, Guild 75;
Fairbanks   1,   Sheldon   10,  absent 1.
ANOTHER MAINLAND TOUR
Premier McBride   and Party
Will Visit Revelstoke
Hon. Richard McBride will leave on
a tour of the upper mainland July 6,
when be will visit Ashoroft, Kamloops,
Bevelstoke and Golden. The premier
will be accompanied hy the provincial
secretary, Hon. Dr. Young; the attorney-general, Hon. W. J. Bowser, and
tbe chief commieBioner of lands and
works, Hon. F. J. Fulton. Tbe trip
will be of but short duration, lasting
only about ten days. It is entirely
non-political in its nature and is
taken purely that the government
may obtain a better idea of the ncods
and progress of tho different parts of
tbe provinoe.
A New C. P. R. Branch Line
WINNIPEG, June 19.—The Canadian
Pacific Bailway has decided to pn -
ceed at once with further construction
on the Moosejaw-Lacombe branch.
This branch, whioh will bo one of the
largest and must important in Western
Canada, will run from Mooeejaw, on
the main line, to Lacombe, on the
Calgary A Edmonton brunch, near
Oalgary, through a practically new
country, but one well known to be of
great agricultural value. This branch
bas already about 30 miles of steel
laid out of Moosujaw, but in the dull
times work was stopped, but will now
bo pushed to completion.

JUSTICE DEMANDS
While we are pressing our claims
for the route up the Canoe River lo
the 6. T. P, construction, and cen
treiug our attention on securing
this route for the transport of contractors' supplies, we must not lose
cognisance ol the fact tbat there
are matters which require our immediate and closest attention righl
at home. in a week ur tu.. now
our thirty lUiy.-' option allowed by
the C.P.R. t'i pedestrian trallic
across- the new Columbia i■ ri<iye
will have --xI•;r<-i 1 which will ui_.ni
tin- :ilis"iuts' ami conjplete isolation ni the trans-river section of
tin- community. Ever since the
lirst Bottler arrived in that country
on the weat side of the Columbia,
the difctrii-i there has been Bteadily
growing, and one by one families
have come, homes have been built,
land cleared and the nucleus- of a
rich and valuable suburb laid. By
cutting off communication from the
city ;tll further growth will Ins suppressed and yet we hnve to stand
by and look on without apparently
being able to get any redress. The
time lias come when the eves of the
government must be opened to tbe
real facts of the ease and how the
development of Revelstoke is being
retarded. It is hardlv in accordance with the government's policy
of progress and enterprise to allow
a valuable revenue producer like
Revelstoke, to suffer for want of
proper attention and expenditure
of money. We can safely say that
if nothing is dune towards helping
OUt the  district   by
municution between various purls,
the outlook will nut he promising,
,nnl on iho other hand we cannot
conceive how uur claims in lliis
respcel fun legitimiilely he laid
aside and no nolicn taken of I he
resolutions which lime from lime

in   ihe   proper   authorities by our
local huilies. This is :i twitter

approaching visit, although lhe

reasoning to the people.

ENTRANCE TO THE DEUTSCHMAN CAVES, NEAR REVELSTOKE
THE PROBLEM
OF TO-DAY
Citizens of Revelstoke Must
Pull Together—A Progressive Policy—Let's Awake
Out of Sleep.
Revelstoke has only but recently
been fully alive to the fact that she is
yet in her childhood as far aB development and -progress goes, The great
fault witb Revelstoke citizens is that
they are too prone tojlook at anything
from their own point of view, and to
judge anything according ns to how it
may suit them individually. Tbis
should not be the case nnd although
we cannot prevent people from considering wbat is best for themselves in
whatever qui siinn may arise, yet it is
essential for the Miccess of the community hn a win>le, and indirecely for
tndividllil- themselves, if tbey can
only be persuaded to see it, that every
queh inn nf municipal progress and
development that arises should be
taken up and dealt with in a manner
that will be of benefit to the community ns a whole,
In allowing ourselves to run along
year after year in the same old groove,
without hnikiug over the wall to sne
ivh it is on the other side, we make a
great mistake. Respect and consideration must be felt for and is due to
the pioneers who have spent tbe best
of their lives iu indirectly opening up
our territory und causing Revelstoke
to be placed on the map, but yet these
same pioneers wculd not probably
havo stood by their town and made it
what it is, purely for the sake of the
town without they themselves benefitted dirctly by it. There are few
indeed of us who have a real sentimental thought about our city and
who live and spend our money for the
city's sake and yet is it not right that
where we make our money there we
should spend it, and by working fur
the good ol the community wo incidentally aid and benefit the very
source Irom which we live and move
and have uur being. Reveletoke has
jogged along, quiet, unassuming and
sleepy, ro sing only when dire necessity calls for some p;uticnlar energy
and going at it hammer and tongs for
a little while, either getting what she
wants, or, as is invariably the case,
being content with a promise and
seemingly glal that she need not exert
herself any more with the vague consciousness that she has done ber duty.
Tbis is nut the way to succeed. Tbe
time has arrived when n change must
take plsce, a change which Revelstoke
needs badly, and one which imposes
duties and obligations on individual
citiiens which tbey cannot wriggle
out ol. Hum drum running in a
groove is not in keeping with what
the city deserves. The old must give
pltce to the now. I f Revelstoke is lo
go ahead, as she fully deterves to, ber
citizens must work together fur that
end. The less we think about political, sectarian and social differences
and their accompanying drawbacks
the belter we shall all 1 e f r it where
the life and development of the city is
concerned. Friendship of parties and
sects is based on individual friendship
and the fostering of these friendships
menus the continued friendship of
parties and sects. This is bound to
continue even if there is no unity in
fact between them.
Revelstoke should stand by ber
rights and demand her just dues in
development. It will easily be seen
how and where our city can expand
and what is preventing its expansion,
yet we lay back ami complain amongst
ourselves and bemoan our Into. Life
is real. Fivo minutes nuw are as valuable as live minutes of eternity and
as potent of possibility. These aie uo
Bible times when men lived and worked two or three hundred years, and il
we would do any good in our day we
must do it now. Soma of us could
count grey hairs before we're seized of
this truth, anil this brings us to the
last (Iiiii iml: What steps should be
taken to secure the periniiti nt well
being of every man and woman iu
Revelstoke?
When once private interests become
of more importance to the business
men, a turning poiut is reached, and
business antagonism supersedes all
other motives, while others arc so
wrapped up iu their own concerns,
trading on the past and on the credulity of the public, to lend even a
mite of their time, but are re.ping the
benefit of hours of work devoted to the
city by more public spirited citizens.
Unfortunately, some of these drones
are our worst kicker when matters
public are not quite in accordance
with their own interests. These may
appear bard words, but all must
realize that public interest should bo
lirst consideration and in proportion
to the furtherance of matters of n
public nature so will private business
build up. In the development und
expansion of our city no stone should
bo left unturned to secure our objects
and Revelstoke Bhould not go to sleep
on it wbenshoshould be up and doing
Persistence should lie our motto and
when right is nn our side, there should
be no fear of the issue.
Chinese Head Tax
Ottawa, June 19.—At yesterday
afternoon's session tbe House of
Commons went into committee on
the Chinese Immigration Act amendment. It provides that tho bead tax
of $f>00 may be paid at the point of

GLORIOUS CANADA
Eulogy by Sir Edward Grey—
Union and Strength
At the annual general meeting of
the Victoria League held recently in
London, Sir Edward Grey, the Foreign
Secretary, in speaking of the work
accomplished by the league as a whole
concluded a magnificent speech by
referring to the Quebec Tercentenary,
" I know nothing," he said, "which
should npp.al to us at home wilh
more satisfaction than tbe commem-
oration of Canada's tercentenary. Her
origin began with struggles, with
rivalry, aud she enu look back on nil
that to-day without any touch of
bitierne8s for her present is glorious,
not because of the suffering of the
struggles, but because uf the union
and strength and peace that have
beeu born from the struggles and
heroism of lhe past, Canada has been
made a nation by uniting two peoples
into one. And 1 think there is do
country anywhere which is to day en-
tilled to have n better and a happier
frame of mind than Canada with her
glorious past and ussuied prospect of
future success and greatness.
What is the secret of our Empire
to-day?
The bond of union of the British
Empire.
It bus been freedom nod freedom is
the secret of our Empire to-day. Tbe
bond of union of the British Empire
to-day is not rule and dominion but
liberty and independence. That is un
Empire of liner, rarer quality than
the world bus ever seen. If it is to be
preserved nnd live it should be animated hy one spirit, and that a noble
spirit. I believe the Victoria League
is engaged in the work of spreading a
sense of responsibility und a noble
spirit throughout the Empire."
Safety Cartridgefor Mine Blasts
One of tho serious dangers of mining
ie the failure of the detonator sometimes to explode the blasting charge..
The unbred charge is then left in the
rock and at some Inter time, on being
struck by a miner's tool, it explodes,
killing or injuring miners and any
other peisons near. A safety cartridge
is designed to prevent such accidents.
