The tentative selection ol a site for
B public market, an optica on which
the committee of the city council
will endeavor to secure and the passing of a oylaw for the construction
of cement sidewalks on the local Improvement plan were features of the
session of the city council last night.
A resolution was also passed grant-
ing free light to any citizens who
may erect light standards.
MARKET  SITES.
The proposed market site will cost
■310,500. Aid. Bell reported that the
market site committee had obtained
prices on the lots for a market site
as follows
R. Howson offered the Cummings
Transfer property, two 50ft. lots ou
Second street for $7,000'.
A. _, Kincaid offered the "nft. lot
on corner of Second street aud Con-
naught,  avenue for  $6,000.
F. A. Peters offered three lots at
the corner if Campbell avenue and
Second street for $3,000.
G. W. Bell oflered lots 10 and 11 In
block 9 corner of Campbell avenue
and Third street for 82,300.
R. U. Macdonald offered lots I, '•
and 6 in block '.I for $5,000.
The Peters, Bell and Macdonald
properties constitute the entire block
ou Campbell avenue between Second
and Third streets and this was the
site favored hy the council the price
tor the block amounting to $10,500.
It wns left to the committee to secure options and report to the council.
FREE  LIGHT.
A. li. McCleneghan wrote saying
that be had been consider!! g tl
vlsablllty of putting three or four
electric lights around the bank corner. He asked whether there would he
any objection on the part of the city
and whether the city would be   pre-
I ared   to furnish  free  light.
Aid. Bell moved that any one who
put up standards be granted free
light, provided the lights were erect-
id ou a uniform system under the
supervision of the city electrician. He
thought if a start were made the
business streets would soon be
lighte I.
AM,   McSorley was opposed  t. •  having   a   double  Itghting system  in  one
place,   lie  thought   tree llfcht   should
be given w ben a full bli ck w as
cd  by standards.
The   Mayor  referred   to   thi
anda lights.   The light  Inspector had
found people Ironing and makli g  I

employed in laying the pavement
'..ul! be local and tbe company
would guarantee the quality of    the
work. They would eithei il- ■ it themselves or supervise the wcrk of a

A grant was made to tl.e agricultural society of $69 to cover the cost
of wiring the building, a bill for
which had been presented by the city.

LOCAL COMPANY TO
DRILL FOR OIL
Ten Square Miles of Oil-Bearing Land Staked
Yesterday at Arrowhead Strong Indications of Oil Exist—Mineral Gas Burns Freely
—Machinery to be Installed at Once—Experts Give Favorable Reports- Oil Probable
at Short Distance From Surface Easy
Boring.
NO DAMAGES
FOR DEAD COW
Company Not Liable For Fencing  Track — Judgment
Debtor is Committed
Ten square miles <_* oil bearing
laud were staked yesterday by R.
Smith and W. Poupore on behalf of a
Kevelstoke syndicate consisting of T.
Kilpatrick. .1. M. McKay, Dr. W. II.
Sutherland, G. S. McCarter, W. A.
Anstie, G. R. Lawrence, Dr. J. H.
Hamilton, K. Smith and W. Poupore.
The land consist-; of six square miles
at thc mouth of the Columbia at Arrowhead and four miles across the
Arrow lake at Galena Bay. It is the
intention of the syndicate to install
drilling machinery at the earliest pos-
1 sible moment.
There are the strongest indications
j that the district contains a large oil
j deposit and reports from experts are
that there is strong probability that
I oil  will  be  discovered   at    no    great
depth.
Three  years  ago  a  company  was
I formed to prospect for oil in the same
j neighborhood hut although most favorable  reports  were obtained  finan-
| cial complications prevented the project from being carried to completion.
Gas  in  large and  increasing quail-!
tities bubbles through tlie soil.   This
has been collected in bottles and burns .
freely.   In one place an inverted fun- j
nei placed over the escaping gas has
been   lighted   at   the   small   em\   and
burned  steadily.    Oil  in  small  quantities   has  also  been   noticed   on   the
water of thc Arrow lake.
Professor Aughey, president of the
University of Pennsylvania and one,
of the foremost oil experts reported
on the possibility of finding oil mosti
favorably. He declared that there
strong indications of an oil
.    area  and  that   the  oil  would
probably be discovered at a depth of:
only 1.000 feet.   He examined the gas,
on  the surface and declared that   it
il a vegetable but a mineral gas
at it extended over a wide area. ,
Other experts have reported equally
favorably.   An engineer employed by
he   Pitt   River   company,   who   hasi
D   special   study   of    lil   bearing
formation, gave it as his opinion that
an oil urea extei d    : Calgary ta
•• Pacific coast. The lighter oils, he
•'nought, would be found at Calgary
and the largest deposit of the heavier
oil somewhere in the Columbia valley,
probably in the neighborhood of Arrowhead. His prediction in regard to
the Calgary field has already been
confirmed.
The fact that coal is found within
the radius of 100 miles from Revelstoke is another indication of the possibility of oil existing Wi the neighborhood. The members of the local syn-
elicate are all confident that the probability of finding oil is extremely
-'.rang and are prepared to back their
opinion with their cash. Many other
Revelstoke citizens have asked to be
allowed to share in the enterprise and
it is possible that a company will be
formed to take over the oil rights nnd
"in ■ ite. As the earlier portion of the
drilling   will   be   in   sand   the   cost   of
sinking a well will be comparatively
small.
BRITISH COLUMBIA HA.S
PROVED   OIL   FIELD
British Columbia has a proved oil
tield which directly adjoins that
which is now pouring lairly large
quantities ol oil up through the
Dingmuii well. 10 miles frcm Calgary
The held, which lies in the Sage valley in the Flathead country, includes
two parallel autlclines and contains
an unbroken oil tield lor _5 miles.      j
Allen G. Nichols, of Angeles, Cali-.
lorniu, au expert oil cpeiator, and
editor of the magazine called Oil
Industry, author of an exhaustive
work ou oil, is at present in Vancouver, and will proceed to the Sage river valley oil fields.
He says that the indications al -
ready discovered together with thc oil
brought to the surface, are very
promising indeed.
"As far as I. can learn now," he
said, "the work in that oil field has
inly been preliminary compared to
California the wells there are only
rostholes. Aud yet they have found
oil in commercial quantities. I have
seen samples, it is very light and I
think it is worth fully eight times as
much as the heavy fuel oils of Cali.
Icrnia.
UN   BAME  ANTICLINE.
"The Dlngman well, so. far as I can
figure now, was driven ou the north-
cast slope of the anticline that has
its crest in Sage valley," said Mr.
Nichols. "Tbe Royal Canadlau Oil
company, which has since beeu acquired oy the Columbia Oil company
drilled a few shallow wells in that
district and tney bave struck oil. I
i nderstand that the new company,
which is backed by some substantial
oil men. will proceed to develop its
properties at once.
The wells will be drilled right into
t.he anticline, probably several lum -
('red feet deeper than the present
wells.
"Then the B.C. Oil fi Coal Development company, which has proved the
district by  drilling four  wells, is  also
planning to extend its operations,
NEED FOR OIL
Mr. Nichols is fairly sure that the
cil wells to be drilled in the Sage
river valley and in the Flathead '
country will return a greater flow
than the Dlngman well at Calgary,
lie is ol the opinion thai the dis
covery of ml in commercial quantities in western Canada will mean a
very great deal to the Uritish empire
v hich is short of oil."
"Coming up on the boat," lie said,
"a commercial traveler asked me
what 1 thought a well of say 500 bar-
iils of oil a day would be worth.
When I told him that it would be
worth to Canada a half-million dollars be nearly fainted. But then,
outside of California, frw people
i.ave much of an idea as to the Val-
ut   of the oil  industry."
Seven cases were decided by Judge
Forin in the county court on Wed -
nesday. The most interesting was
that iu which Mrs. Catherine M.
Fraser sued the Canadian Pacitic
railway company for 8125 damages
for the loss of a cow killed on tin-
track near her ranch east of Revelstoke. Judgment was given lor the
defendant without costs. W.I. Briggs
appeared for thc plaintiff and G. S.
McCarter  for the  defendant.
Mr. McCarter cited an order of the
railway commission dated June 'JO,
1912. rellevliu' the company from erecting and maintaining fences aloug
certain portions of its right of way
en its Okanagan, Bhuswap, Mountain
and Arrow lake subdivision which included the spot north of the track
about a mile from Revelstoke where
the cow was killed.
Mr. Briggs contended that proper
notice of the defence bad not been
given and that the company was
stopped from claiming exemption under the railway commission's order.
He also protested that such orders
should be advertised in thc districts
to which they apply so that ranchers
might  know their responsibilities.
In the case of the Lawrence Hardware company vs. Joseph Morgan,
judgment summons, the defendant
did not appear and an order for his
committal for 10 days for contempt
of court was issued. Mr. Morgan is
believed  to be in  Spokane.
In the case of Joseph Lonzo vs.
Robert Ballard for $50, a dispute regarding lumber, judgment w'as given
for the plaintiff for 83,60 ami costs.
G.  S.  McCarter appeared for Lonzo.
In C. B. Hume & Co. vs. William
(',. Smith for SITU .'.in judgment was
given for tlie plaintiff, G. s. McCarter appeared for plaintifl and C. E.
Gillan for the defence.
Judgment was given for the plaintiff in the suit of John C. Laughton
vs. William G. Smith for $328.20. G.
S. McCarter for plaintiff, CE. Gillan
for defence.
In Lindsay Ware & Co. Ltd., vs.
S. A. Webb, judgment summons, an
order for payment wns made.
In McRae Mercantile company vs.
.1. J. Lesser for $9.16, judgment was
L-iven for plaintiff.

OonnaugrHt   Ave. Rm/nlntni.-,
A process of producing a pure basic
carbonite white lead and ull the by-
I roducts in six hours has been perfected hy A. Tudor Eyton of Nelson,
B. C, he gave a demonstration of u
temporary working model which he
has erected. Before an audience
of scientific chemistB and practical
mining men the new process wub sub
mitted to a highly satisfactory test.
The inventor said he had been carrying on metallurglc experiments for
in years and be believed the com
mercial possibilities of tbis economic
process were very great. While with
holding the details of manufacture
he pointed out that among the advantages would he a great saving in
time and labor und the cost of production would he at least 7,"i per cent
less than any known system, Another
advantage which/ he claimed would be
the elimination of lead poisoning and
other maladies brought on frequently
under present processes. Under existing conditions men engaged in tbe
business need the special rse of bath
rooms and certain acid drinks—often
injurious—and even then cannot
maintain a normal state of health.
Under the new process he claimed
these essentials became unnecessary.
"The fostering and encouragement
of this industry in BritiFh Columbia"
he continued, "means a great deal to
the province with its large ureas as
yet but partially explored. Already
tl.e. known silver and galena deposits
are looked upon as valuable resources, but under the conditions which
exist today they cannot except in
specific instances be Classed among
the profit-producing nineralB of the
province.
"Toduy  I  can  purchase in  large or
small, quantities pig or bar lead,  delivered      in   Uritish  Columbia      from
Montreal, England,     Germany      and
j Australia  cheaper  than  I can      pur-
; chas.   the local product.   Dealing     in
: large quantities of lea.l of one grade
i would      he one of the essential feat-
[ arcs  in  thc manufacture of all materials under my process, and at pres-
: ent Australia would get the trade be-
; cause it is tbe     cheapest purchasing
market for the raw  material today;
although under special terms it might
j be possible to get material from Kng-
! land,   via   Montreal,  delivered ut  the
11'ort of  Vancouver eqin liy as cheap.
"(ine  of the  obstacles  which    con-
front the  proposition  of getting de-
livery  here of locally  developed  raw
material is that it is in the bands of
;   monopoly.    So  long as the  bulk of
tne output of British  Columbia lead
is   Bhipped   east   for   manufacture    It
will  always      keep  the  local  market
. ',"■!>  for  raw      material   produced  in
other countries.

THE  ARROWHEAD Oil. FIELD.
The decision of the .syndicate of
Revelstoke businessmen to devolop
the oil field which is believed to exist
within thirty miles of the city, may
prove of vast importance, and the
boring operations will he watched
with deep interest.
The oil discoveries at Calgary have
proved that the theory that oil exists
in commercial quantities in Western
Canada is no hallucination. The development of the oil Held in Alberta
will in itself prove of substantial advantage to Revelstoke. It will mean
the investment of foreign capital, and
. production of wealth which will
. reate an era nf prosperity, in which
Kevelstoke must share.
Thc proving that a valuable oil
field exists at thc gates of the city
itself would be of vastly more importance. Revelstoke would then be
tlie chief centre of a great tield of
commercial and industrial activity, to
which thc eyes of the world would
be turned. Its growth and progress
would lie rapid indeed.
And there is sound reason to ex-
pect that the boring operations contemplated by thc syndicate will be
crowned with success. The indications of gas and oil are indisputable
and those, whose opinion is worthy of
respect, have reported that the prospect of developing an oil field at Ar-
rowhead are highly favorable.

"How soon can I get one?"
The wonderful new hornless insbuments have talked and sung and
played themselves into amazing popularity. The silent, smooth-
running motor, the diamond reproducing point that does away with
bolherejome changing of needles, the beauty of design and the sweet-

New Steamer Launched
on Okanagan Lake
The new steamer which has been
1 nilt by the Canadian Pacific railway
Inr the Okanagan lake sen ice, was
launched at Okanagan landing. Owing to the nature of the ground at
the*- slip way the steamer became
stuck in the ways and did not take
tbe water. The vessel however will
be treed iater un. The christening
ceremony wis gracefully performed

Capt. Gore, the company's superin
tendent of lake steamsr service.

heen fitted with compound engines
which will develop a speed of 17 to IS
miles an hour. Thc new craft will
take the pluce of tbe Eteamer Okanagan. which has for many years done
yeoman service and will he command
ed by this vessel's popular skipper,
Capt.  Estabrooks.
The hull of the steamer is steel and
accommodation has been provided for

have been fitted. The Okanagan will
continue to act as an auxiliary and
if traffic warrants it tbo Cunadian

daily service. The Siccmous will be
put into commission al out thc commencement of July.
tidpated, says Mr. Foster, that With
tbe revival of tbe export trade coast,
