^INTERNMENT CAMP
s (OR REVELBTOKE PARK
Member for Kootenay Explains |Recent Negotiations at Ottawa — Harvesters' Excursions from
British Columbia Arranged Shell Situation in
Canada—Zinc and Copper Refineries
Addressing a public meeting in the
city ball on Thursday, R, F. Green,
M.P. spoke of the efforts he had made
iu Ottawa to secure a camp of interned Germans to work on the automobile road in the Revelstoke park
and announced that, as a result, the
Dominion parks department was
trying to arrange to put interned
Germans to work ou the ri ad. He
also announced that he had secured a
promise that whatever facilities were
provided by the government for the
transport at i. ni of harvesters for work
cn the prairies should he available
thiB year in British Columbia equally witb the eastern provinces. The
present situation in Canada regarding the manufacture of shells for the
British government and of boxes for
the shipment of munitions was fully
explained by Mr. Green, who also explained the motives which governed
the militia department in arranging
for the training of troops for service
at the front.
At the cl.'se of the meeting, which
had been arranged by members of
the executive of the board of trade,
a vote 'ef thanks te>Mr. Green for
coming to Revelstoke at the request
of the citizens, for the information
which be bad given, and f.»r tbe work
which he had done on Revelstoke's
behalf was proposed by W.B. Farris,
seconded by G. R. Lawrence, and
passed by a standing vote amid applause. Another resolution moved hy
A.E. Kincaid seconded by CF. Lindmark asking that Mayor W.A, Foote
telegraph to tbe Canadian l'aciiic
railway officials now on their way
west to ask them to meet the citizens of RevelBtoke regarding employment at the Canadian Pacific
railway shee|is was also carried unanimously.
T. Kilpatrick, who was in the chair,
said that the object of the meeting
was to endeavor to secure some benefit for Revelstoke. Thc city had contributed men and money for j.atriotic
purposes' and it was felt that it had
r.ot received a-< much in return as
other places. It had tried to secure
a military training camp, but had not
succeeded on account of large camps
having been adopted. He thought
that an ellort should be made to
obtain an intern camp. Shell making
would also no doubt be referred to
Thcre w. re In the city manufacturers who could supply boxes for the
shipment of munitions and this was
another matter In which the city
was interested.
Mayor \V V. Foote expressed his
pleasure in welcoming Mr.Green. The
city was unfortunately situated. It
was obtaining no benefit from a
training camp or from manufactures.
In the past it had depended upon
lumbering and on the Canadian Pacific railway. The railway work was
nt a low ebb and the government
work was not sufficient to provide
:• livelihood. The project of securing
ji training camp had fallen through.
The question of manufacturing shells
in thc shops had been taken up. The
only feasible project seemed to be to
secure an intern camp to finish the
automobile toad. This migbt look
like taking Work from the laboring
man, but he did not believe it would.
The government had sppnt it= ap-
pro|>riatton and merchants and citizens generally would henefit from the
camp. Guards would bc required. The
city must look to the tourist trade,
Revelstoke would be a great tourist
centre. Once tbe Canadian Pacific
railway felt lustlfled in putting up a
tourist hotel thc prosperity of the
city would be assured For making
lioxos for shipping Hhells, there was
•plenty of nine lumber in the district and there seemed no reason why
the boxes should not be made in the
■Oity. Tt was hard to finance the citv

was being sent, tei Calgary because, of
the big shop there which entailed
heavy overhead expense which must
he met. The cost was greater when
the work was sent to Calgary. The
city was at least entitled to
internment camp.
J. I). Sibbald, jr., gave information
' which he had received from Winnipeg
regarding the manufacture of shells.
R. Howson said tbat he understood
that the Canadian Pacitic railway
would not consider the manufacture
of shells here. If it was not feasible
it could not be done. The minister of
militia had admitted that a training
camp here was feasible. An Intern-
ment camp was also feasible and
should be considered at once
boxes could he manufactured
'that also should be taken up.
understood that the railway
moving machines trom the Revelstoke
shops. 11 had tin etlect of leaving
vacant homes after employes had
heen encouraged to build them.
A. B. McCleneghan said that he
did not know whether citizens realized the seriousness of the presi nt
local situation, lu the jmst they had
been able to paddle their own canoe
without outside assist ince, uow out-
Bide assistance was urgently rsquir-
ed. He did not mean le, say that Re
velstoke would not he a good city,
but at present lumbering was at a
standstill, the shops were af the
i allway business was
quiet. It. was a period of hard-uped-
pess. They were not asking f..r velvet
but for assistance that would not
hurt anyone else, but would help to
tide over the winter. Mr. Green had
done his utmost for the city. That
was the feeling e.f the whole community. There was no criticism of
bis work. The question of the Canadian I'acitic railway shops was not
In his pr.ivinc" but he thought that
the city should approach tbe com-
I any ..a the question. In regard to
th'- Internment camp he did not
think that the laboring man need
fear that it. would take one -
out ef his pocket. Only a certain
amount was being spent this year.
Tlie mad should be completed.
Guards would probably he needed
(rom the men out of employment.
The militia department should be re-

meeting was not called to make complaints,  hut it was     felt that Revcl-

ORDERS FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA
LUMBER
British Columbia lumbermen recently obtained from the British Admiralty an order fer ten million feet
of lumber, and shipping to move it
Las been provided. Usually Uritish
Columbia lumber interests have had
to put in bids for European business
in competition with United States
Pacific coast lumber interests, and
take their chances on getting shipping accommodation. The new admiralty contract was placed with the
i Ian idian Pacific province alone. The
British government has agreed to
deal directly with British Columbia
dealers in future business of the kind.
British Columbia is .naturally highly pleased at the recognition at last
Jieing given to its important lumber
industry, says the Toronto Mail and
Empire. There will be a heavy demand for lumber in Europe after the
■war for the rebuilding of the cities
iind towns that have been destroyed.
The yellow pine of tbe southern
States and the Douglas fir of British
Columbia are almost necessary for
the reconstruction that will have
to take place. Up to June about 150,-
OOO.OOrj feet, board measure, of lumber was used in the United Kingdom
jn making huts for the troops.
Sweden Bupplied quite a large part
,ef thi-: lumber, Sweden exports about
four billion feet, board measure, of
spruce each year, and British financial interests are heavily interested
in the trade. When war broke out
military requirements provided the
only available lumber market, and
Swedish merchants were quick at
getting the business at old prices.
But the placing of the order witb
British Columbia for ten million feet
has broken the ice, so far as tlie
British government  is concerned.

It is the spirit enshrined in the motto
upon tbe battered walls of the Vas-
cello on the Janiculum. "He who

MINING PROSPECTS BRIGHT
Rossland Miner Mining men of the
west cannot well complain ul present quotations, and if there is any
lack of activity in mining affairs
from now on, this condition cannot
lie laid to low quotations in metul
prices. During the past couple of
weeks the buying of copper has heen
the heaviest that has ever been
known, and at figures closely touching 20c. a pound, while, us for spelter, this metal has climbed up to
iOc. in some instances for spot. The
meat surprise of tiie market, however, came witb the sharp advance in
lead, which has already reached $7,
in the bidding and which, it is freely
predicted, will soon reach ss mui $9;
and, as lead stocks are low, and but
a comparatively'few mines producing,
tin- e,nth,ok for lead mining was nev-
ir brighter. Silver, also, has dis-
closed an upward tendency, and the
opinion is expressed that the white
metal is due for a marked advance,
and no valid reason exists why it
Bhould not climb up to 60c. or "ac.
within the next few months. The records being made by both copper and
zinc producers in this weBtern country at the present time is something
marvelous, nnd present market conditions bid fair to insure even a
srreater production. And this demand
will be by no means temporary, for
it is bound to continue during the
war and also for many years thereafter, when the reconstruction period
will require almost as_^great an
amount of the metals as is now be-
ins: used in the period of strife. The
mming outlook for this country
could  not he brighter.

already running in over 120O of tho
finest theatres in the United States
ond Canada, including the Allen in
Calgary and the Hex in Vancouver,
The Rex theatre of this city is the
l ist house in British Columbia to
show "The Diamond from the Sky."
The Mutual Film corporation is daily
receiving hundreds of letters from
exhibitors and the public claiming
the "Diamond from the Sky" to be
the finest picture serial or otherwise, ever produced. The third episode of "The Diamond from the
Sky" will he shown at the Rex in
this city on Tuesday next. The first
two installments were mostly introductory but there's something doing
in the third. The Rex, orchestra has
arranged a special program of music
for the third episode nf "The Diamond from the Sky." which is published elsewhere ln this issue.
Greenwood Smelter is
Soon to Blow In
It is reported in the Similkameen
Star that for over three weeks the
British Columbia Copper company
has had a large force of mechanics
getting its Greenwood smelter ready
to blow in. About July 15 the big
Mother Lode mine will not be ready
furnace will be blown in, as the
to ship hefore that time. Coke is al-
leady on the way from Coleman, and
it requires ICO tons daily to feed the
big furnace.
Men are being put to work at the
Lone Star mine. The ore from that
nine will be sorted and trammed to
Boundary Falls. The railroad will
haul the ore from the falls to tbe
smelter a distance of three miles.
At the Mother Lode mine the hoist
is being changed from one side of the
shaft to the other, in order to get nt
tbe rich ore which lies just beneath
the two hoists. It will take about
two weeks time to put the hoist and
mine in condition for shipping ore.
Upwards of 7.1 urn will hp employed
at this mine at the beginning and 511
at  the smelter.
At Copper mountain, near Princeton, the company has 35 men and
three diamond drills workinc, nnd
more ore is being constantly found
at that ercat property.

Tuesday, July II,
Three carloads of zinc ore and two
carloads of lead have been shipped
irom the Monarch mine since operations were commenced by the Great
Western Mines Development company,
a Vancouver concern, which has taken a two years lease and bond on
the property from W.J. Van Houten
of this city, and J.H. Sanderson of
Prinee Albert, Sask, The zinc was
shipped to Kansas City and the lend
l.o  Trail.
There is an embargo on the shipment of zinc ores out of the Dominion and it is necessary to obtain
permission from the customs authorities in Ottawa before such shipments
can be made, but there is no zinc
smelter in Canada and shipments can
only bc made to the United States
or to Swansea, Wales. Negotiations
with the Dominion aud provincial
authorities are now being carried on
for the erection of smelter workB in
Canada, with every indication of a
favorable outcome.
The Monarch operators bave orders from Swansea foi a trial shipment of 50 tons, which will bc sent
forward within a week, but they are
not sanqulne as to this being a profitable market for the ore, as the
freight rates are much greater than
to United States smelters. Several of
the latter are negotiating for the ore
at the [iresent time and Mr. Gray of
the Great Wt stern company stated
this morning that the published re-
ports that the American works   were
swamped With ore and ce mid ne.t take
Canadian shipments were evidently
wrong. A representative of one of
tbe larirest American companies was
recently a visit'ir at the Monarch,
and made the statement that there
was a movement now on foot to
build on the American side of the
' line a zinc snvltcr for the express
purpose of treating Canadian ores.
Were  a  smelter  erected  in  Vancouver the Monarch  would profit to the
extent  of a saving  of over  $10      per
ton  in freight charges alone and   the
province would benefit In many ways.
The  Monarch     is    situated     three
miles  east of  Field  and the     concentrating mill is   close to the Canadian
Pacific  railway  track.      The property
was discovered     when     the railroad
was being surveyed, and has been   in
operation for over ?o   vara,     having
. passed  through the hands of  various
owners.  In the past it was thc   custom to save only  the lend ore,     and
there is a dump of tailings below the
eiill   and   running  down   in the  Kick-
ng   Horse river,  which  is estimated
to contain 20,000 ton6 of ore     which
will average 21 per cent zinc.
It  Is the intention eventually to in-
tall a tramway to bring these   tail-

Our Army being a picked army we
are losing rather better men on the
average than the other combatant
nations. We shall not, on the other
hand, lose so many.
The average number of children in
lla best families is two, whereas the
average family of the casual laborer
is seven.
Vou want, an average of four in a
family to keep up,the proportion of a
particular class. It is incorrect to
assume that a family of two will replace tbe father and the; mother,
since allowance has to he made for
non marrying members of these families and wastage from early deaths.
Hut to those who arc alarmed
about the future 1 would venture to
point out that the elimination of thc
best fighting s'.ock is uo new phenomenon, The upper classes have always died out. There are probably other reasons for that, but excessive
war is one. The fighting people get
to tbe top, and then proceed to go
on lighting until they are all gone.
That has happened all through h s
tory. It happened in England during
the Wars of the Roses, which practically Wiped out the last of the Gorman nobility. In tbe Middle Ages also many of the best intellects of the
nation declined parental responsibilities—they sought the study or the
• blister.
There is one very Important difference from the biological standpoint
Met ween this war and previous wars.
The losses of women and children will
not he as great. Disease is so much
under control that the morality
among non-combatants will reach
nothing like the same proportion as
in the wars of past generalions.
Ami one must remember that the
women are just ns capable of transmitting the valuable qualities of the
lace as the men. The chances of mar-
riage if many women in the upper
strata of society will he improved after the war.
For instance, as one effect. of the
war there will he more British heir-
isses.
s. me people say too that wc shall
all be poorer after the war, and thnt
that may lead to a recovery in thc
birth rate, since when people nre
poller their families are larger. I
am not sure that that is not sound
reasoning. The question is, how far
social tendencies now prevalent will
continue when the war is over.
THE SMILING SCHOOLBOY
The examination hall is a perennial source of merriment to all hut tho
perspiring youth grappling single-
handed with the Goliaths whom au
unkind fate raises up nt this most
critical stage in his career to bur thc
way to honors and fame. Like Goldsmith's "boding tremblers," who, in
presence of the village schoolmaster,
had "learned to trace the day's disasters in his morning face," tlie
average pupil is quick to presage
evil us he eagerly scans the morning
face of the examiner, or tuckleB an
examination paper with no friendly
prompter at band to lighten the dark
path. To add to his confusion, some
SUb-Conscious impish sprite dullB his
intellect and distorts his mental
vision at the psychological moment
when all bis faculties are required foi'
the won; in hand. The result, while
it not. Infrequently sjiells disaster for
the pupil, contributes to the gaiety
of the world
The following choice specimens ol
howlers are culled from a recent
number of The latently Digest. History is the hurdle at which most of
the jiiijiils fall. Harrow hoys told the
examiners that
"K.inie's Drift was a  battle at sea.
"The White Man's Grave is the
grave where General  Gordon died in.
Fellahs are donkeys.
"In William til.'a reign Dysentery
got permission to worship."
One hopeful deposes, with a trace
of secret bitterness, that "an abstract noun is something you can't
see when you are looking ut it,"
while another disrespectfully announces thut "the masculine of vixen is
vicar."
The difficulties of mathematics are
here reflected'
"Algebra was the wife of Euclid.
"Algebraical symbols are used
when you don't know what you arc
talking about.
"Geometry teaches us how to hisex
angels.
"The line opposite the right aogle
in a right-angled triangle is called
the hippopotamus.
"Parallel lin-'s are the same distance all the way, and cannot meet
i.nless you bend them."
It was an English schoolboy who
wrote' "The King was not allowed
to order taxis without the consent of
parliament," a subtle if unconccious
thrust at the exii ■ .'agance of the
present times.
Who can repress a chuckle     as   he
reads the following:
i    "Henry  VIII, was very fat, besides
being a Nonconformist.
"Franklin produced electricity hy
i tibbing cats backwards.
"George Washington was a land
savory.
"Lord Raleigh was the first man
to see the invisible Armada.
"Tennyson wrote 'In Memorandum.'
"Tennyson also wrote a poem called 'Grave's Energy.'
"Queen Elizabeth rode a white
horse from Kenilworth through Coventry with nothing on, and Raleigh
oflered her his cloak."
The mysterious workings of a hoy's
mind—who will attempt to explain?
Enough that, unlike the works of
the great poets, his subtle humor is
not due to "emotii n remembered in

NEW EQUIPMENT
IS NEEDED
Shell Work Requires Few Men
—Work Concentrated -Elaborate Organization Needed
The following letter dealing with
the manufacture ol shells iu the west
Mas heen received from J.I). Sibbald,
jr., from H.b. Lyull, secretary-treasurer of the Manitoha Bridge and
Iron Works, and secretary of the
Western  Shell committee:
"We have in Winnipeg a committee
•if which I am secretary,  which     has
tharge of the orders placed in the
west, except. British Columbia. The
name "Western Shell committee"   is
athei- a misnomer as it does not
touch anything west of the moun-
talns.   We   received    instructions      to
iistribute orders for 4O0,l>00 shells
Wl). high explosive type, and Col.
Carnegie placed 100,000 of these with
shops n. Saskatchewan and Alherta,
leaving SOO'.OOO in Winnipeg. Six shops
ire now engaged upon these and will
complete hy December. Comparatively few men are engaged upon it and
■icw equipment   has     to be put in in
ach shoji. Twenty machines are required to turn out 150 shells in 20
hours and the ordinary railway divisional Bhop has only two or three of
the type required in its regular equipment. For this reason the railways
have leen  bringing in machines from
lutslde points anil concentrating the
work at the large Bhops, such as
Montreal, Winnipeg and (Vancouver?)
A very elaborate organisation is rein each Bhop as well as the
inspection by the war office arms and
ammunition department. Unless a
reasonable output can he assured
they cannot maintain these inspectors and the system at any particular sheet.. It is a long lire oeeding
getting ready to make them. The
< anadian Pacific railway at Winnipeg
received orders last March and have
not finished a shell yet. which shows
• preparation is necessary. We
iave not shipped nny shells yet and
have heen four months preparing. I
understand that the British govern-
■ .ent is unwilling tei take any more
shells unloaded which means that no
. re' ee;,lers will he placed until
• plants nre established in the
?ast."
Alien Internment Csmp
(Continued froui Fage Oue.)
-..■ts  were   being supplied  trom Uritish Columbia, and iu the cumps tbere
were not yet enough boota,     He and
•ther western members had suid tbat
they could not    support tbc  government in a policy of importing  articles that could be supplied here. Nothing  but hoots and food    was being
supplied hy British Columbia. It wus
true that the east wus gettiug   more
'   than  the west,  but     it     was
i    manufacture    the
goods required.
The ammunition     committee     had
ad a hard time, continued Mr.
Srcen. He had thought tbat it bad
paid too lit' le attentioe to his de-
• lands on behalf of the we.tt until he
bad received the explanation. Contracts had been let in Canada for
S.000,000 shells of which 2011,000 had
..■ne to British Columbia. Vancouver
.ml Victoria had spent    K0 0 I
e In new machinery to turn out
shells. They had been told that if
thej produced the shells they would
1 e given further orders. They were
given three months from May 1 to
turn out the older. They were to he
■uppiied with the blanks, hut it was
reet until June 2Tth.it the first car-
ioad of blanks wis received. The
•jhell committee had believed that it
could -supply the blanks but hud met
with difficulty in securing the tieces-
>ary bar steel. It had taken four
months to get the grade ol steel
.necessary for the work.
The shells now being made were
fieing manufactured under the old
•contract and wre going to Oreat
Britain. Great Britain now wants no
more blank shells. The hollow steel
bullet is all tbat is bein.' manufactured in Canada today. In addition
the casing for the bullet is required.
The completed shell tiiliug, the brass
iitii'l'-  e i the  cap,   (ulminator
ond fuse nre all needed for the com-
i lete nhcll. The difficult)1 is that
Canada must now manufacture all
''use  purls   ,iinl  mull   assemble them.
Expert workmen wett needed. Tbe
making of the brass shell Is the most
serloUl task. The brass must be of
certain texture for if it Is not ths
brass swells, the gun is put, out of
builDSM and the gunners In danger.
In eastern Canada M.Oflfl were made
and  every one  was condemned.     The
proper mixture is now being obtain
ed, but the manufacture of the  fuso
bad not yet  bppn provided for.
The sheii oontmittae mod that zinc
mist ho manufactured    In   Canada,
Zinc bad increased in price from
7 cents to 27 cents a pound. The full
smelter capacity of the United States was employed on United States
zinc ores, and it was impossible to
sell Canadian zinc unless a contract
had been arranged before the war. He
had interviewed the slull committee
in the subject and the government
was now negotiating with two firms
for the reduction of zinc ores in
Uritish Columbia, ln British Columbia copper was being produced, but
was not being refined. The government was anxious to assist the copper (mining Industry and to secure
copper complete and he hoped that
assistance would he given to a copper refinery In British Columbia.
These projects would Ftimulate the
mining  industry ot the province.
With regard to the manufacture oi
boxes for the Shipment of shells there
had been a misunderstanding, When
lie last passed through Revelstoke
the mayor had told him that a contract for the Bup'ply of bi xes had
been lit in Golden, When he reached
Golden he was met hy the man who
was sujinns'il to have th° contract
and was asked by him to aid in securing a contract. No contract had
Men let. The manufacture of boxes
was not a big proposition. He had
taken up the matter with the shell
committee which told him that it
was not buying boxes. The chairman of the shell committee told him
that thc committee let contracts for
shells and the contractor pr .vi led
the boxes. At first the committee had
let a few separate contracts for boxes but it had discontinued tbe practise and was now taking no responsibility for the supply of boxes.
Regarding the operation of the
Canadian Pacific railway shops in
Kevelstoke Mr. Green said that bo
further contracts for shells w mid
be let until Canada could supply tbe
completed shell. This should he arranged In the near future, hut
it would take some time to supply thev
1,0 n.000 shells for which contracts
had already heen let. When he was in
Ottawa only 700,UM' blank shells had
heen supplied. He took up the Re-
\elstoke shop question in Ottawa but
found that heciuld make no arrangements with the Bhell committee.
The consent of the Canadian Pucific
railway would be necessary before
the shops could he used. He thought
that the railway company could
surely provide work for the Revelstoke shops He suggested that the
city get into touch with the company's officials when they passed
through the city. If it could not get
satisfaction from them it should go
to Sir Thomas Shaughnessy. Sir
Thomas realized the conditions and
Mr. Green believed that he would see
that work went tothe shops. It was
not merely a request hut a matter
of right. If it was in his power to
aid in anyway he would le delighted
t.i give any assistance in his power.
The government was not in a position to start relief work. To make
arrangements for such work was one
of the reasons why he went to Ottawa. Revelstoke was now goinr
througb something of what bad been
i cperienced at the coast last winter,
hut he believed that the int«rior was
better off. He had tried to secure an
appropriation for distress work. He
had even asked for a special meeting
of the cabinet to discuss the question. The meeting wns cranted and
seven ministers wer pres-nt. He
laid the case before them. They were
anxious to comply wit'., his request,
but could not do so. The govern
ment cannot find the money needed
for its ordinary expenditure. It had
been told by the British government
n..it it might approach the London
market last May f r a loan of $25,-
0i ,000. When May came the British
government said t:..it Canada must
not yet tlout a loan In Londi n as cautions would not permit. The pro-
evtnCM atiA local communities must
deal with the situation In regard to
illstr<ess. The Puinin un government
was bending every energy toward
aiding the empire in the present
crisis. He had been told that he had
been fortunate to seen.' appropriations early for his c> nstituency, in-
liuding the   lUl •   r"ud,     other
wise tbey might not have been obtainable.
It had been lUg(<tflted that the
railway commission might prevent
the  company from   ti.insferring  work
from th" Revelatoke ehe.j.s, He
doubted whether the commission had
iuch power. Thc company might say
that it was mote er. ■;-.-niical t have
Mie work done elsewhere and that it
wns a necessary move to give the
i uhiic cheai He would    ad-
\ise going int"     the    whole qu
With th" railwaj Revelstoke
was a  railway towr..    It  was a
feeder tothe railway and he felt
■uire that It would be giver, fair
treatment.

difficulty  In securing bottoms      The
admiralty was aiding in providing
transportation. If the coast mills
secured the foreign trade the interior
mills would be busy in supplying the
demand on the prairies. The crop
looked well and a good harvest would
mean a brisk  demand for lumber.
He had been asked why the internment camp had been located at Vernon. This matter, said Mr. Green,
was in the hands oi the department
of justice. The local government had
nothing to do with it. One difficulty
was how to house the.interned aliens.
Under international law it was not
permitted to put them in jail unless
they had committed some specific offence. The provincial government bad
offered the use of three buildings at
Nanaimo, Vernon nnd Wilkinson road
Two, thou?h built as jails, had never heen used for that purpose, the
other was an abandoned jail, In addition 8(Y* *o 4-C0 interned aliens had
heen housed in the rink at Fernie,
hut they were heing moved to Lethbridge. The government objected to
a multiplicity of internment camps
on account of the added cost. The
interned men were guarded by militia, not hy civil guards. He had
taken up at Ottawa the proposal to
employ the interned aliens on the
automobile road in the Revelstoke
park. He could not see tbat it would
injure the working man. If he had
thoiig111 s , he would have hesitated iu
taking the matter up. When he was
at Sicamous on his wuy from Vernon 70 tourists got off oue train and
4ii to 50'off another. If tbe road was
completed many of these tourists
would stop off at Revelstoke. It
would be possible for Revelstoke to
do, .is was done at Jasper park, supply tents for the accommodation of
tourists on the mountain until a
totir.st hotel was built there. If
the road were completed plenty of
work would he required for building
trails and roads in the park and he
did not think that the employment
of aliens to finish the main road
would be any detriment to the work-.
ing man. It was Impossible to get'
further mon y from the government |
to finish thc road at present and
when money could be obtained
there would be ample opportunity to
spend the money. In the meantime
Revelstoke could get tourists. At
Edgewood there was n i internment
camp although work was being done
on a road which was of no service
until completed. He took up the
question of a camp in thc Revelstoke
jiark with the minister of justice. At
first he had been opposed to the
proposal but Mr. Green had pointed
out that in addition to tbe work the
camp would be beneficial to the men.
Finally the minister had said that
he would have no objection to the'
parks authorities Working out a
t-cheme. Mr. Green then took up the j
question with Hon. WMJ. Roche,
minister of the interior and with J.
B. Harkin, commissioner of Dominion
parks, with the result that Mr. Har-1
kin had promised to try to arrange for
H camp and to get interned Germans'
at work on the road as speedily as ,
possible. Mr. Green bad since communicated with Mr. Harkin twice on
the subject, but had not yet received '
a reply.
The conclusion of Mr. Green's
speech was greeted with hearty ap-!
plause. A. .1. Macdonell then pointed
out that the season in the park was
e irt -md that it was desirable to
get the work Btarted as soon ns possible and on the suggestion of W.B.
Farris, Mr. Green s.iid thot he
would telegraph to Mr. Harkin urging bim to arrange for the camp
without delay.
Mr.  McCarter said that he tboughl
the    Canadian    Pacific  railway
rbould use every shop if it was    undertaking the manufacture "f shells.
He did  not     tbmk     that Mr.  Green
could do m..re  thun  be had done ex-
c<-j>t  te. me  his good  offices  and     influence with     the     Canadian  Pacific

He suggested     thai  a resolution
-■ ii to ; ■•   pi esented   to    Mr.
Bury and to Mr.  Orant Hall     when
they passed througb the city.
The resolutian asking the Canadian
i'acitic railway officials to meet the
citizens  was th°n  passed.
In reply to the vote of thanks, Mr.
Creen said that while much might bc
done I.y correspondence it wns much
more satisfactory to meet face to
face so that any misunderstanding
might be removed. The minister of
agriculture in order to relieve unemployment was arranging to assist
harvesters to reach the prairies und
Mr. (Ireen and G.H. Barnard when in
Ottawa had secure! a promise that
whatever arrangement was made
should apply to British Columbia
equally with the eastern provinces.
It wns possible that assistance
might be given in securing transportation. He thought that if work could
he secured on the prairies during
harvest it would help to tide over
the winter.
