every case a grant, either ol ligbt and
water, etc., was made and in several
instances the honpit 1 gut nothing iu
the wuy ol cash assistance for treating
city patients.
The council agreed that Kevelstoke
was as liberal as any other city, and
the offer was a reasonable one, giving
free light and water power and taxes
in return for medical treatment and
medical supplies Iree to the city's
indigent patients.
The mayor said that the hospital
and city should work hand in hand.
City patients are not charged with tbe
hospital rates and medicines but
medical aiicmluucc fees, which are
taken by the doctors.
Moved by Lefeaux, seconded by
Sawyer, that the city clerk be instructed to write to the secretary of
the hospital that the city council, in
return Ior free treatment, including
medical attendance and medicine to
the city's indigent p itients, will give

hospital, but iu view of tbe coming
additions to tlie hospital the council
cannot see its way at present to make
ar.y cash grant.   Carried.

Result of Willis Armstrong's
Public Meeting of Police
Commissioners—The Mayor
Vindicates His Actions.
One ol tin warmest and most inter
esting publi ■ meetings held in this
city lor B".ue yearp took place lust
night, in Ihe city hull, tbe OOOBSion
being a meeting culled by Willis Armstrong, police ciiiiiniissiuner. in order,
as announood by bund bills, m bear
what he hud to say nbont Mayor Lindmark and tlie administration of police
affairs, and accusing the mayor of
refusing to admit the public to the
police commissioners meeting the
night beforo.
The hull was packed to the doors, a
large nudience waiting to hear two
prominent civic olliciuls air their
grievances to each other. E. Howson
occupied the chair.
Willis Armstrong in opening the
proceedings read from the Act regarding the meetings ol the police commissioners as being public unless
otherwise ordered, and he accused the
mayor in broad language pi tiying to
keep matters of import io the city
from the public, Baying that be bad
no right to order tbe public out of the
meeting on the previous nigbt. The
mayor had no right to keep anything
from the publio and now he wae
afraid to meet him and bear what he
thought about him. He wanted to
put it up to the mayor aud let the
people see that he (Armstrong) would
do all the people wanted. Tlie mayor
was no man and bad no sand iu him
and was two faced. He referred to
the matter of the jailor's pay, accusing
Lindmark of trying to cut down bis
salary to $75, and ol obtaining a letttr
from Mr. Sturdy that be was satisfied
with that amount. Tbis was unfair
to Mr. Sturdy who worked long hours
and deserved the itiNJ which the police
commissioner board wanted to give
him. He tben accused the mayor of
urderiug tbe medical health oIKcer,
Ur Curtis, to examine the inmates uf
the sporting houses, which order the
rest ol the board had turned down.
He roundly slated the mayor for not
attending all the board meetings aud
accused him uf standing iu his way in
carrying out tho laws ol the city. He
pointed uut tbat the mayor should
have stopped the sale uf liquor un
Sundays and if tbe hotel men didn't
du it then have their licences cancelled. He went uu to accuse the
mayor of allowing skin games during
tbo Fair and followed up by saying
that he hud collected moooy from the
inmates ol sporting houses for the
Fair, lurcing it from them by official
means. He said be bud letters to
prove this. Armstrong then concluded
a vehement oration by denouncing the
mayor ns unlit to look alter tho city's
interests.      Ho   wus double faced and
he (Armstrong) would close the city
down tight if he cuuld. The niuyor
was afraid tu moet bim publicly und
the people shuulii only elool men who
weren't afraid to attend public
.M.i. ,,r Lindmark on rising suid the
meeting wits unique and was an evidence nl gulling uu Armstrong'! pari
and hu ««o nurrv thut be (Armstrong)
bud ujt produced thu letters bo was
talking ul,out. Ilu relerred tu Arm-
strung accusing him ul lorOing subscription*      frum      thu      lower   tOWO
"liiiies" for tbs Fair, explaining thai
he Imtl not gone  alone but with uthei
gi'iitloincii, und had iiskud these
w iincn lor subscriptions uu lhe ground
that tbey mined properly uu MeKcii-
/.io Avenue besides uther buslnOSI
interests in tbo city, and it wus only
reasonable thnt tbey should puy u
share of tho Fair expenses, lie put. it
up iigninsl Ai instn,ng accusing him
ol getting certain "ladies" to sign letters Buying thut tbo iiiuyur bud forced
money out of tbem and be urged bim
to ■ produce them. Mr. Armstrong
being evidently ashamed tu do it
Armstrong, he said, was only a cat's
paw lor some one else and Uiis was I In
rankest piece ol blackmail ho had seen.
Ho snid the pidic.c commissioners
stood twu to une anil explained that
Chiel (lain had bud his instruction!
Irum him to clour out tbo gamblers,
etc., but the other Iwo commissioner*.
had countermanded tlie order. He
did not suspend Diiiu becauso bo was
sorry for him. In referring to tht
public meeting called fur tho previoui
evening ho said Unit there was nothing of importance tu transact and
that ho wanted to got through quickly
in order lo huve tlio mcclitigs ol the
council and Court ol Rovisiuu,   Then
was really no nesd for it. He ex
plained why lie hie' stood ou' against
the inorease of the jailor's Bulary because the eonst.il I,In and sergeant
were gelling little or nothing
more than the jailer which wasn't fnir.
He eeoused Armstrong of keeping
an ' pun town and of lieing tbe bunds
ol tho polic" and of saying tint ah
the police will le lired if they obey
any oider of the mayor. In conclusion he snid that the people hud
b ul tlieir fun nt lhe meeting and lind
got. all they asked lor,
Armstrong then accused the mayor
of crawling out of meetings and such
things, being it repetition of his previous remarks, and ended by saying
dial the mayor was afraid to meet
him on a public platform and Unit ho
was afraid to sign u certain document
which decument he pruduced.
Tbe mayor suid that since it had been
put up to bim, and that ub Armstrong
bod made the bluff he was only too
pleased to acquiesce, Out the people
must tako their medicine. Tbis was
the opportunity of bis life and he
would gladly sign the paper.
The following resolution by the
police commissioners was signed hy
Armstrong and the mayor; "That the
chief of police and bis constables be
instructed to forthwith put a stop to
all forms of gum'ling, whether in tbo
hotels, billiard balls, cigar stores, or
elsewhere in tbe city, including ail
slot machines and other devices, and
that all hotels be compelled to close
their bars on nights and Sundays iu accordance with any provincial statutes
or bylaws of tbe city which are in force
regulating such matters, and that all
houses of prostitution in the city be
forthwith closed by the police, and the
inmates ordered to leave the city, and
that the chief of police be detailed to
rigidly prosecute all offenders agaiust
the laws in force iu the city relative
to tlie above matters."
Such was the dramatic conclusion
uf a meeting which was hardly In
keoping with the dignity of  the city.
The bluff has been called and the
reply given, antl now the "lid is on."
Mayor Lindnuirk said that hedidu't
wish fur too drastic measures against
all common souse, and be would do
his best to protect every citi/en, as
he always hud dune. Ile explained
that Willis Armstrong was using some
cue else's brain ui be had nunc tu use
Tlie but ha? now gouu forth und iu
a few days things will  begin   to hum.

Valuable Information on Orchard Spraying
The spraying bulletin issued by the
Provincial Board ot Horticulture
through Mr. Thomas Cunningham,in-
swector of fruit pests has now reached
its third edition, another 30,000 copies
having  just been issued.
'The present value of the orchards
of Hi iti-s11 Columbia, ' says Mr. Cunningham, "has reached the enormous
sum of lil'teen million dollars,aud they
are increasing in value at tbe rate of
not less than twenty-live per cent, annually. It is quite sale to estimate
the value of these orchards live years
hence at thirty million dollars.
In view of this marvelous development, it behooves every man in this
province who lins the slightest regard
for the permanent prosperity of this
beautiful nud I ighiy favored country,
to spare no effort to keep our orchards
and gardens clean, and the i|tiulity of
our fruit up to the highest standard.
This can only be done by close attention to thorough cultivation, prun
ing nnd tlie intelligent use ot insectl
cides nnd fungicides."

citizen of Revelstoke is at liberty to

composed of business men of good
experience and standiug in the community tlieir actions are usually the
outcome oi considerable common
sense tnougbt and discussion. They
do not meet for pleasure, but for the
furthering and developing ol the interests of Revelstoke There is not
much use in kicking against what is
a valu .1,1c institution to the city, and
when it is remembered that the board
has accomplished iu llie past and
what it is doing now and will continue
to do for ttie city's hest interest, onlv
the sore heads will complain. It is
very easy to sit l.ick and criticize and
condemn and sli >.c faults of others,
hut it is another matter to get in and
try to do something for the benefit of
tlie com in unity. The workers, not
tbe kickers, aie what the city needs !

IMtl'ir MMI.-llRKll.ti-
Dear Sir,—In reply to the letter
appearing in your last iaeue signed by
Mr. Kellie, regarding a report that the
Trades and Labor Council are in favor
of abolishing the ward system, and
criticizing tbe action taken by tbe
Board of Trade in connection with the
proposed postoffice building.
Mr. Kellie considers that the abolition ol the ward system will result in
Ward 3 deiug deprived 'fit their voice
in tbe government ol the city. He
consequently considers tbat ward 1
and 2 are in solid opposition to ward 3,
or at any rate sufficiently opposed to
prevent that ward having any real
power in matters of civic nd.nii is'ration. If this opposition _cu a l.ict. it
might be asked what representation
ward 3 has under tho present system
with two aldermen in the council
against four?
It does uot follow that the abolition
ol the ward system would deprive any
section ol th • people of their voice iu
the administration of the city, as suggested by Mr. Kellie. It would, on
the other hand, strengthen Ihe pe--
sonnel of tbe council by ensuring that
candidates for office must have the
approval ol the geueral public. It
would have s tendency to consolidate
and give greater loroe to the general
public opinion on matters oi civic administration and public morality, and
do a great deal to eliminate the sectional feeling thst has existed so long,
and which some people apparently
take pleasure iu fostering.
Ward 3 would have no cause to fear
tbo result ol a change from the present
system. This is partly evidenced by
the faot tbat although greatly in the
minority in tbe council under the
present system, they have always
shared fairly in Ihe public expenditure,
The action taken by the Trades und
Labor Couucil indicates a broadness
ol view that some people in the past
have nut been prepared to credit to
labor organisations in general, (or
uuder the present system tbey are
certain of being able to eleot any candidate they may choose in ward 1,
while under the system tbey propose
lt will be necessary Ior them as well
as lor other sections to select candidates who will have tbe confidence ol
lhe whole electorate.
As regards the postoffice site question, it is very evident that Mr. Kellie
has some prejudice in this matter,
Tho Board ol Trade does uot pretend
to represent the views ol the whole
people ou this question, but being
composed ol mostol tbe representative
business inon ol the community they
aro certainly entitled to tlieir opinion
on the matter, lu any case, their
action is ono which should appeal to
ell lair minded persons as thoy have
but suggested to  the  City Cuunoil
what appeared to them to be the best
! means of obtaining the opinion of tlie
public in general as to the most suit
able site. Tbe government is not
bound to accept the site that may be
decided upon by the means suggested,
but such a plebicite sbou d be of great
value in enabling the government to
arrive at a decision.
In regard to the rumor mentioned
by Mr. Kellie, that $9,000 is the price
asked for the lots on the corner of
Campbell avenue and First street, I
may say tbat tbis is not correct.
Mr. Kellie asks whether lots in this
vicinity have changed bands at the
figures mentioned. I can inform Mr.
Kellie that tbe lots in question were
sold at the price they are now being
offered to the government.
Yours truly,
F. B. Lewis.

Ediuir Mail-Herald:
Sir,—Some public reference bus
been made to certain actions brought
in the name of Mr. Phipps against
tresspassers on timber berth 88, south
of Kevelstoke, and a miserable attempt
bas been made to connect with tbat
litigation tbe name of the bauk witb
whioh Mr. Phipps is connected. The
hank has no interest direct or indirect
in the outcome ol that litigation, and
Mr. Phipps has no personal interest in
it whatever. The full responsibility
lor the litigation is assumed by the
Yale Columbia Lumber Company,
Limited, and il these so-called "Poor
Settlers" bave any rights to invade
our property the courts ol this province will bo found quito capable of
taking care of their "Rights,-' if they
bave any.
I hope that tbe threatened investigation will take place, as it will put
some people in their proper places.
Pending the decision ol these cases
common sense and decency would
seem to point to the advisability nf refraining from a discussion ol tbe oases
in the press, but 1 lind it necessary t
do so to this extent in ordor that no
injustice may be permitted to be done
to Mr. Phipps or the hank,who are in
no way concerned.
Yours truly,
F. E. Sine.

Board of Trade
It is strange how frequent are the
kicks registered at the Board of Trade
over their actions on different matters
of local import. Why cannot those
who take exception to the board's
doings get in as members and then
have their say. Every responsible
citizen of Revelstoke is at liberty to
become a member, and as the board is
composed of business men of good
experience and standing in the community their actions are usually the
outcome of considerable common
sense thought and discussion. They
do not meet for pleasure, but for tbe
furthering and developing of the interests of Revelstoke. There is not
much use in kicking against wbat is
a valuable institution to the city, and
when it is remembered that the board
bas accomplished in the past and
wbat it is doing now aud will continue
to do for the city's best interest, only
the sore heads will complain. It is
very easy to sit back and criticize aud
condemn and see the faults of others,
but it is another matter to get in and
try to do something for tho benelit of
the community. The workerB, not
the kickers, are what the cily needs I

Mr. Taylor  lins   been a faithful ser-
vant   to  the conservative party   fura
number of yours, nud  the   claim of
I Kevelstoke  for  representation   in the
I cabinet was really coming to us.   This
I riding bas  assumed  such importance
in its extent,   its climatic advantage*,
jits  natural  products, and  unlimited
' possibilities,  have  made it extremely
popular, as well  as  une  of  tbe  most
prominent sections of British Columbia, and   it   is  only in   justice to the
district   that    the    portfolio   should
cnnie here.
We most cordially congratulate Mr.
Taylor ,n, his appoiutniout, and bo
will doubtless prove himself capable
in a business way of administering
the public works department tu the
best intotests of the province.
