Smelter in Revelstoke
Syndicate's Proposal
"Wants Permission to Supply Fewer "Within City Limits to
Smelter Ha\ e Thirty Thousand Horse Power Available   Bondholders Might Object.
At the meeting of the city council
InBt night Mayor McKinnon reported
informally that he had been ap
proachrd regarding thc establishment
of a smelter at Revelstoke hy the re-
prcsentntivc of a syndicate who held
large water power rights In the neigh
borhood of Revelstoke. He had been
asked whether the city would permit the syndicate to supply power
to thc smelter if the syndicate secured its establishment in the city limits. Thc mayor said that he was
not personally in favor of the proposal so long as thc city' owned its
own power plant. Thc syndicate
claimed to have iiO.OOO horse power
available on Isaac creek. He thought
the idea was to get an entrance into
tho city.
City Clerk Gordon suggested that
the city bondholders might object to
the entrance to the city of a power
line competing with the city power
Aid. McSorley thought that there
would be no ndvantage In having the
smelter within the city limits, Revelstoke townsite was small and the
city would profit as much from a
smelter outside the limits.
Aid. Bell advocated doing all possible to encourage the establishment
of new industries but he objected to
promoting competition to the city
power plant.
Work on Park will
Commence at Once
R. F. Green, M. P., member for Kootenay, announces in a
telegram received yesterday by A. E. Kincaid, President of the
Revelstoke Conservative association, that the Government has
decided to proceed speedily with work in connection with the
new Dominion park on Mount Revelstoke.
The following is the telegram:—
" Inform citizens that order-in-council establishing Revelstoke park has been finally passed and work in connection with
this will be proceeded with early this summer.*'

Hundred  Dollars Granted to
Baseball Club—Building
Bylaw Introduced
At the meeting of the city council
lust night it was decided to construct cement sidewalks on Third
and Fourth streets as requested iu
petitions. A grunt ot 1100 was voted to the baseball club toward fencing in the grounds with a canvas
Aid.  dourne reported that the public  works  committee  had  spent    the
whole  day   examining  the  sidewalks.
It had found some of the sidewalks
on Fourth street not bad enough to
necessitate  removal.   On  Third street
the  walk  was  very bad and must be
taken   up.   The     committee    recom - j
mended  butting in cement  walks   on |
both sides of Third street from    the
cast side of McKenzie avenue to    the
west  side  of   Robson  street  and    on !
-both sides of Fourth street from the '
■east side of McKenzie gvenue to   the i
west side of Vernon avenue.
Aid.   Pradolini    thought   that    the
expense  ol  putting  in  cement  walks |
would be small compared  with     the
cost  of   repairs.   The  people    wanted
thc  walks.
Aid. Bell seconded by Aid. McSor-
ley, moved the adoption of the report.
Aid. Needham opposed the motion,
which was carried, Mr. Needham declaring that good walks would he unnecessarily torn up. Aid Smythe,
who arrived late while the discussion
was in progress did not vote.
Tony Long applied to have thc side
walk extended the length of his property on lots 11 and l* corner of
Vernon avenue and Fifth street. Tbe
request was referred to the public
works committee for report, as was
also done with a similar request for
a sidewalk on McCarter avenue between   Sixth  and   Seventh  streets.        i
The Orange lodge applied for a
grade opposite their building. Re -
ferred to the public works committee
A bylaw respecting the erection of
buildings wus given tirst and second
readings. Aids Bourne and Pradolini
dissenting. The bylaw provides for
the appointmeni ol a building in -
spector and governs the erection of
buildings providing that during building not more than one third of thc
street and sidewalk may be occupied.
The penalty provided for violation of
tbe bylaw is $10:! and costs and contractors must make a deposit to cover thc cost of cleaning streets if
soil is spilled while drawing away

Zinc Reduction Plant Experiments Have Good Prospects
—Revolutionize Mining
Ct. C. MacKenzie from Nelson witb
Mrs. MacKenzie and family, spent
Sunday night at the Hotel Revelstoke leaving for Ottawa on Monday.
Mr. MacKenzie, who has heen in
charge of the electric zinc reduction
experiments at Nelson under the auspices of thc Dominion government is
returning east in consequence of tbe
grant toward work having been exhausted and the e_perlmet.ts having
been discontinued.
Mr. MacKenzie states that al -
though the experiments have not yet
resulted in a commercial success and
although serious difficulties have
been encountered he is contident that
they have been working on right Hues and he believes that the result
will bc eventually a success thut will
revolutionize the mining industry of
the interior. To conclude the experiments successfully he estimutes
would entail an expenditure of possibly two to three hundred thousand
Arrangements are now being discussed, said Mr. MacKenzie, to se -
cure the installation somewhere in
tbe Kootenays of a ten ton demon -
stratum furnace hy the Johnson electric smelting company. The company is asking a grant from the Dominion government of S2.">,000 when
ready to blow in tbe furuace aud
another grant of $25,000 upon a successful commercial demonstration of
the operation by a continuous 30
day run. Mr. MacKenzie says that
the Johnson procefes has proved a
success in experimental qualities and
he has hopes that it will eventually
become commercially  successful..
The Johnson representatives who
have been staying in Nelson, paid a
visit to Trail. Immediately on their
return they uttended a meeting in
Nelson, and Mr Eldred informed the
gathering that after a long discuss
nn nf the process und their proposals with the Truil smelter people,
tint the promise had been made to
them that they would be allowed to
r.re u portion of the Trail smelter
Mtc for the creation of their demonstration plant, that they would be
furnished with suitable ore up to -',-
HOU tons in quantity at the exact cost
of mining, roasting and delivering at,
their furnace. They had been treated
very fairly indeed, said Mr. Eldred ,
and at the present time he said that
lie could see no place that would be
better for their demonstration thau
Trail. They would save considerable
1 y going there both in the matter of
obtaining roasted ore and power.
Part of the equipment of the local
government experimental plant could
be used by tbem at their proposed
plant at Trail. He also stated that
they had a great ninny offers from
other sections of the country to encourage them to locate their plant,
lilt be felt that they were bound to
stick with one proposition and not
jump before the completion of negotiations for better or for worse.
Thc  ultimate aim  ot     the concern,

year of Vrogress
in WorK. of y.M.C.A.
A report of highly gratifying progress during the past year, inspiring
adjresses and delightful musical selections followed by refreshments combined to make the annual meeting of
the Y.M.C.A. held on Monday evening in the spacious gymnasium, a
thorough success. R. Howson, who
was in thc chair opened the proceedings with an appropriate speech in
| which he remarked upon the fact that
i the Revelstoke association was turning out trained men for Y.M.C.A.
work and helping to remove the dif-
ticulty that had been experienced in
the past in securing men for the
work. One assistant secretary after
being trained had gone to Chapleau,
and another now in training was to
ail a vacancy nt Springfield.
A. E. Kincaid in brief hut effective
speech told of the work accomplished
by the "finish the job" committee.
He said that the job could never be
finished. There woull always be
something new to he done and some
one must be always on thc job fin-
r-ticing the institution. They had
heen asked to remove a debt of *5, ■
Ouu but the committee had done better und had raised *li,n00 practically
every dollar of which had been paid
up. They had invariably been received With every courtesy and assistance
which showed the appreciation by thc
people of Revelstoke of thc work of
the institution.
Mrs. T. Kilpatrick then read the
report of the Ladies Aid. showing
the etlective assistance rendered to
tbe association.   It was as follows:
The work of the Ladies Aid is very
similar each year.
We appreciate very much the generous help always received fiom tho
people of Revelstoke, the valuable
assistance of the Y.M.C.A. staff of
whose patience and thoughtfulness wo
can hardly say too much.
Wc are ulso much indebted to   Mr. '
Wallace for his interest and help   in
planning and our improvements.
During the past year we decided to
equip our- kitchen, that we might
more easily handle the work incident

tend our functions, this cost sllG.10.

nl work the Y.M.C.A. was making'
w, w. Foster, M.P.P., captivated
the    audience    in   t\ telling      speech j
brightened hy flashes of humor in
which he alluded to the great work
before thc Y.M.C.A. in connection
with the vast possibilities of the province. It was u treat to him, he
said, to listen to the story of progress that had been told. Revelstoke
he thought was particularly fortunate in that its citizens reulizcd tho
vulue of the work accomplished hy
the Y.M.C.A. It was a work of especial value in that it attended to
physical as well us mental and moral development. He thought that
the Y.M.C.A. was the first to realize
the importance of physical develop -
ment and to that wus due much of
its progress and success. British Columbia was a young man's country
and it was only on the verge of development. It contained 100,000,000
acres of farm land besides immense
wealth in timber, fisheries and minerals. It had not one resource but
many, and it made its appeal to tho
young man and to the strong man.
Its scenic asset was of immense value. It was estimated that tourists
to Switzerland spent $100,000,000 a
year. The forests of France were
capitalized for tourist purposes and
New Zealand was advertising its attractions for tourists. In British
Columbia there were' 10 Switzer-
lands in one. If the forests of
France were destroyed British Col
umbia would never miss the forests
necessary to replace them. New Zealand was calling nttention to her
coast line. British Columbia had
magnificent fiords crying out for ex-
Mr. Foster then alluded to the
national park on Mount Revelstoke,
whicn has just been created by the
Dominion government. Its scenery
was magnificent and was bound to
attract tourists. He described the
beauties of Robson purk and showed
that the vast scenic resources of the
province would eventually lead to
a great influx of visitors. When the
advantages of the province were revealed tourists would come in thousands instead of ones to see the beauties of the country. He went on to
point out that the Revelstoke Y.M.
C.A. was not doing a merely local
work but would impress itself upon
the life of the province. The young
men of Revelstoke would go forth
nnd the character they bad funned
would impress itself upon the country. Character was as eternal as the
mountains themselves and in helping
the Revelstoke Y.M.C.A. they were
helping the province,

At u meeting of the mining com -
mittcc of the board of trade held in
the city council chamber lust night
definite steps were taken to gain information regarding the mineral
wealth of the RevelBtoke district and
to further the progress of the mining
industry. The secretary, C. R, Macdonald, was instructed to obtain all
available topographical maps and
other data concerning the district
and thc committee was divided Into
four sections each of which will have
a specified section of the territory
under its charge. These committees
will make visits to their respective
territory, will got in touch with
those interested in mining, will inspect the mines and obtain samples
and will recommend whatever Bteps
may be considered advisable to fur-
tlie  progress of the  mining industry.

business  men  have  arranged  to  take
I art  in the excursion,
T, Kilpatrick was asked to write
to the Canadian Pacific railway company asking permission to put up
large cabinet of mineral samples at
the railway station it being considered that a tangible evidence of the
mineral wealth of the district would
bc effective in attracting the atten -
tion and interest of visitors.

thc Dominion government or hy   the '
municipalities, which obtain from tho
government  the right to  operate     a !

F. H. PeterB, irrigation, commissioner for the Dominion,  with  headquarters In  Calgary.
W. W. Fraser of Vancouver, manager of the Canadian Pacific Lumber
company, was at thc Hotel Revelstoke ou Sunday. The Canadian Pacific Lumber company owns the mill
at Pingston Creek, from which Mr.
Fraser had come, where planing and
shipping is now in progress, the com-
having there 4,oqii,ooo feet of lumber. Fifty men are employed.
j The saw mill is not in operation,
but Mr. Fraser suys that should the
lumber market improve the mill will
be reopened. In addition to the
Pingston Creek mill the company
owns mills at Salisbury Drive, on,
Burrard inlet, at Port Alberni and, '
its largest, at Port Moody.
Although the company only had
two mills in operation at the coast
last month it shipped one sixth of
the total lumber shipments for the
Mr. Fraser, who expects to return
to the coast is a few days, says that '
the lumber business is quiet due principally to over production. The
reduction in the United States duty
is giving sonic relief nnd there is
some demand for cedar lumber and
shingles, but he says that there is

their popularity not only to the flavor they imparted but to the corrective, carminative, or laxative value

Dancing has become more or less
a mania in certain circles and countries. Not the amount of time devot-
] ed to this pleasure, but the spirit of
the dances indulged iu, hus raised
questions and objections, in society,

It is the passing beyond certain limits by what is perhaps thc smaller
proportion of dancers that has created a need of restriction.
In New York over three hundred
men and women of social prominence
leaders in various movements, recently began a campaign to standardize the modern dances.
They did not inveigh against all
modern dances, very sensibly, as they
might have done had they judged
them by the extremes of their practice.
Their desire is to emphasize what
is good and graceful for them     and

I ngineers
going to

2 for I offer
Petroleum has enriched the investors of the United St.ntes by over
*I10,000,000,000. This is new wealth produced from the ground
and impoverishing no one.
Petroleum producing and refining in the United States built up
the greatest American corporation—created more millionaires—
paid, and is paying, larger dividends than any other industry in
the world. Poor men have been made rich overnight by judicious
investment in oil.
Oil is the crying demand of the British Empire to-day. This is
proven by tbe constant agitation for the production of oil under
the Union Jack. In every British dominion a handsome bonus is
offered for tbe "bringing in" of oil.
Canada pays a permanent bounty on all petroleum produced
which amounts to 52.} cents a barrel—more than tbe market
price of oil at the well in California. This gives the Canadian
producers an immense advantage over those of any country in
the world. Oil producing countries, such as Russia and the
United States, demand a royalty from the producer.
Athabasca is Canada's great oil region. The eyes of the Empire
are turned to this rich section as the future greatest petroleum area
of the world.
Actual drilling has proven the scientific theories of 6uch eminent
men as Sir BDverton Redwood, the world's leading petroleum
authority; Chap. Camsell, Government Geologist; and a score of
other scientitie men, in regard to this region.
Four wells drilled on the Moose Anticline, or oil channel, hnve
proven the existence of an immense deposit of arsphaltum oase
oil. Actual commercial production iB now commencing. Canada's
oil boom will assuredly follow.
The cost of production in the Athabasca oil region is lower than
in any other field in the world. In California the cost is high,
because of the nature of the strata and the great depth of the oil
body. In Athabasca the overlaying shales and sandstones are
toft and easily drilled, and the oil body lies at one-fifth the depth
of the California fields.
The Athabasca Petroleum Company, Limited, holds Dominion
Government concessions totalling 8840 acres on the proven Moose
Anticline adjacent to the productive properties. The tract is
larger than the holdings of sixteen representative American companies. It is an actual fact that 22 of the leading companies in
the United Staled whose total holdings are less than those of the
Athabasca Petroleum Company, have paid dividends amounting
to more than twenty-three millions of dollars, and that two and
a half millions was paid by Nobel's, Ltd., of London, Eng, for
Plot 19 in the Baku oi! field, Russia, the area oi which is twentv-
eeven acres.    This equals $92,000 per acre.
The Athabasca Petroleum Company, Limited is a Canadian company capitalized at "1600,000, divided into shares of a par value of
$1.00 each. The company is chartered by letters patent of the
Dominion Government, under which shareholders are afforded full
(rotection. All shares are fully paid and non-assessable.
The first offering of shares in the Athabasca Petroleum Company
is for the purpose of raising money to send the engineers and drilling mnehinery to the properties immediately.
As underwriters of this first issue we have a special contract which
•mables uh to offer the first subscribers two fully paid $1 shares for
••very II invested now.
This offer applies to the first allotment only and is subject to withdrawal without notice.
Mr. D, Power, representing the Northwest   Underwriters  has arrived in the city and is at
the Kevelstoke hotel.    r-VVlr. Power would be pleased to see anyone interested in the above.

Bobbie Evans and Willie Mack are
busily training for the great fight
on Saturday next and both fighters
are showing splendid form. Mack
whose headquarters are at the Windsor hotel came to Revelstoke on
Monday and his clever work has
caught thc eye of some of the fans
nay know a good thing
when they see it.
Evans is not saying much but his
friends declare that he has the result in his mit and that he can win
a victory in spite of all Mack's tricks
can do. Thc supporters of both
lighters however admit that neither
has a cinch and that it will be a
hard tussel.
A six round preliminary between
Frank Burns and Jack Calder has
been arranged. Both are fast boxers
and will give a good exhibition.
A general meeting of the cricket
club will be held on Fiiday evening
at eight o'clock in the city hall, to
arrange dates for a tour through the
Okanagan of a team to represent the
Revelstoke club. All interested in
cricket whether members of the club
or not are  invited to the meeting.    ,
Good practices are being held on
the cricket pitch almost every even

The people of Sicamous evidently
feel hurt, and rightly so, says the
Salmon Arm Observer, that owners
of motor boats on Shuswap lake do
not take more interest in that sport.
Three years ago they lormed a boating club for the purpose of increas -
ing interest in water sports, hoping
that other districts would do the
same and that then a regatta could
be held, each year in a different place
And ever since it has been up to
tbem to arrange for the regatta each
year themselves, with motorists from
other places taking orly a passive
interest. If the other districts do
not sufficiently appreciate the advantages of forming a boat club,
they should at least give the Sicamous sports what encouragement
they can by entering their boats in
the handicap events and by attending
the regatta.
Has Hopes for Success
(Continued from Page One.)
The Kelowna lacrosse club is making every effort to regaiu the Law-
son, Holman and Vernon News cups,
which, if they are won by Armstrong this year become- their permanent property. Fast material will
be added to the local players. The
league schedule has already been
drawn up and the first league game
will be played in Kelowna on June
The tennis club of St. John's
church held its regular monthly
meeting and social last evening. The
members participated in a number of
games of tennis, after which they
met in tbe school room of the church
and transacted business. This was
followed by parlor games and re -
freshments. All who attended spent
an enjoyable time.both at the courts
and the social.
he said, was, of course, to establish
a I Oil-ton furnace or one that might
be found of sufficient capacity to handle thc output of the district. The
benefit for tbe initial plant which
they proposed to construct would be
that a commercial demonstration
would be made The demonstration
plant would be of little commercial
value when the thirty days of demonstration run was completed. He ex-
rlnincd that portions of the present
government sn.elter in Fairview
might be used by them in their initial plgnt.
Mr. Eldred stated that the erection
of a commercial smelter capable of
handling the ore of the district would
cost at least {1,000,000, or perhaps
twice that sum.
Seeking the provincial government's aid to establish <i smelter for
tbe treatment of complex zinc ores
at a point in thc Kootenays, a deputation consisting of Byron E. Elder,
president of the Johnson Electric
Smelting company; Dr. J.S. Struth-
ers, a member of the American Mining Institute, and Dr. A.E. Barlow,
formerly of the Dominion Geological
Survey, waited on Sir Richard McBride on Friday. The Johnson Company claims to have solved the problem of trenting comploi zinc ores and
rcgardB tbe Kootenay district as a
favorable one for operations.
Sir Richard MeBride, after seeing
tbe delegation. Btnted he was much
interested in thc process. Thc proposal advanced, he said, was to continue in thc Kootenays thc experimental work In connection with thc
treatment ol complex ores, wlnrh bas
always received the hearty im-mirnge-
Dlefflt of the provincial  government.

The eighth annual report of the Y.
M.C.A. rend at the annual meeting
liy tne secretary, A. Thomson, on
Monday evening tells a stary of energy nnd initiative crowned with progress and success.    It  is as follows:
March 31st, 191-1, brought us tothe
end of the eighth mile of our association journey.
This year bus undoubtedly been
characterized by a deeper interest on
the part of u larger number than has
been the ease heretofore. An Increased number of the men of this
Constituency huve joined hands and
hearts in unselfish service to their
fellows which is the genius of the
brotherhood in whose name they labor.
It is with gratitude in our hearts
that we submit a summary of some
of the things undertaken and accom-
is      a      religious     being.-
You  may  make a champion  gymnast
or uthlett, out of him, you may give
him the highest     kind of intellectual
itraining  this  world  uftords,   but      if
I you do not develop his soul life and
set him at work in behalf of his fel-
I lowmen  from nn  unselfish  motive for
! Christ's sake, you have neglected the
most    fundamental    and     importnnt
part of his being.
The creation and cultivation of a
sane practical Christian character is
the only reason why the word Christian is connected with our name. The
day has come, thank God, when the
practical man of affairs realizes that
I efficiency is bnsed on ehnraeter.
Our religious meetings were well
attended during the year, especially
!by  the  railroad      men.   One  of   the
factors  wnich  helped  to  make       the
pllshed during the eighth year of the  meetlngB br,_ht     wa8 tfae orchestrai

We       ncknou ledge with sincere
thanksgiving   the   manifold   blessings
of God,  our  Saviour,  who,  in    spite I
of our many weaknesses and failures, !
has dealt kindly  with  us and stimulated  us from  day  to day to  renewed activity.
We would be ungrateful indeed if
we failed to recognize the genuine
moral and financial assistance ex '

value of distinctive brands. In the

The popular Allen players come to
the opera house for one week commencing next Monday. Speaking of
"The Woman" played by the Allen
players at Medicine Hat, the Medicine Hat Daily News suys:
Miss Felton in thc portrayal of the
alert and heroic Wanda, was certainly in her element, thc part being ono
to which she was particularly well
suited and which gave a fine opportunity for the display of her marked
versatility in the portrayal of char -
acter, as well as her masterly command of emotional intensity and dramatic force. In thc first act she was
the slangy, quick-witted and self-possessed telephone girl to perfection; in
thc second act you saw her as the
strong, true-hearted, capable woman,
thoroughly mistress of the situation
as she cleverly plays her cards to aid
another woman in sore distress.

clever and unscruplous ex-governor,
certainly gave the best performance
which he has yct rendered in Medicine Hat Mr. Kennedy, in the some
what thankless part of the easy going son and lover, was nevertheless
exceedingly clever. Mr. Wiggins, as
thc railway corporation counsel, was
another performer who exhibited surprising talent in the portrayal of his
rather dillicult role. Mr. Kneck was
