CITY COUNCIL
T.:^4« MEETING
A New Power Proposition Submitted an.. Turned Down by a
Unanimous Vote.—By-law for $40,000 Passed for Power
and Light Plant Extension and Improvement. To Be Submitted on March 30th to Ratepayers.—The Condition of
the Streets.
Mayor McKinnon presided at a
regular meeting of thc city council
held on Friday night, when there
were also present Aldermen Pradolini
Smythe, Bell,'Needham and McSorley
with the city clerk Mr. W.A. Cordon,
and the Superintendent of tbe power
and light plant, Mr. Cbas. North.
Continuing the discussion of the
power proposition submitted by Mr.
Bowden.
Aid. Needham said he would prefer
that consideration should be given
to tbe subject rather than an immediate decision arrived at. If the city
could purchase power cheaper than it
could manufacture it, it would bo a
paying proposition to buy power.
The question  was could they do that
Aid. Smythe said he had nothing
to say  at   present.    He    moved       tho
matter be referred to the Fire. Water and Light committee.
Aid. Bell said he would like to hear
thc city electricians view ou the subject. He did not quite understand
the  position.
The Mayor suggested that Mr.
North Bhould give bia report to the
committee.
Aid.   Bell said  the proposition      did
not io.,> feasible to him. If a pnv
ate company could supply power and
make a profit the city Bhould be able
to do so. Prom his standpoint the
council shou .1 Dot consider the proposition ai all. The city could manufacture power just as cheap as anyone else.
Aid. Pradolini said he would liko
to  hear  Mr.   North's  view.
Aid. MiSorley—Put the question,
its no use talking about it if it is going to a committee.
Aid. Smythe said he Was of opinion the matter should be considered
by  a  committee.
Mr. Bowden said his position was
thai it the city would entertain the
proposal it would be proceeded with,
if not it would fall through.
The Mayor thought the proposal
was plain enough and there was no-
thlng else to ask  Mr.  Bowden.
Aid. Bell asked if the matter could
be referred to a committee without
banging up the bylaw for extension
of  the  plant.
Aid. Needham—Do you propose to
take over the present plant Mr.
Bowden?
Mr. Bowden—Oh no. We propose
to supply power at any point you
■specify. There would he absolutely
no use for the present plant.
Aid. Needham—Well then we cannot
tonsider it at all.
Mr. Bowden—The power supplied
would be In place of your present
plant.
Aid. Hell—I move that this council
settle this thing right away. Otherwise it will tic the bylaw up.
Aid.  Needham—I second  that.
On Aid. Hell's proposal being put
to the vote it was carried, Aid. Bell,
Needham, McSorley and Pradolini
voting for it.
Mr. North explained the position,
after which the Mayor said the position was that they had to pay interest and Binking fund on tbe citvplant
whether they took power from this
proposal or not.
Mr. North said the only condition
which would make the proposition
attractive from the point of view of
the city would be if power was offered on these terms after the city
plant had reached its maximum capacity on thc water supply and needed additional  power.
Aid. McSorley said he felt thnt the
city  was not in  thc market to pur-

I exceeded  their     maximum    capacity,
such  a  proposal  might  be entertained.   That was thc  position of     the
matter.
Aid,  Bell—That would be a very dif

' are not in a position to consider this
matter at present.
I     Aid.  Smythe seconded and the motion was carried unanimously,
Mr. Bowden thanked the council tor
its  hearing and withdrew.
COMPENSATION CLAIMED
A letter wns read from Mr. G.   S.
McCarter  re     Mr.   Frank     Marino's
claim .-.gainst the city arising out of
• alleged damage due to Hooding   from
ihe dam at the power plant.
Aid. McSorley reported on the present position of the matter nnd the
committee's action and the subject
dropped for the present it being sta-
t.'d that certain plans bad to be obtained.
COURT HOUSE GROUNDS.
A letter was read from Mr. Robt.
Gordon, government agent, to the effect that arrangements were being
made to improve tbe grounds at the
Kevelstoke Court House, tnd in order to properly plan same he had
been requested to obtain from the
city engineer the grades of the
sir.'its adjoining said property.
Aid. McSorley said this matter of
grades was of great importance, the
work should he properly done.
Aid. Pradolini said for practical
purposes no engineering survey was
necessary for the purpose referred to
in the letter.
The mutter was referred to the
Public Works committee.
BY-LAW, S.
Aid. Smythe reported that the
Bylaw committee had not yet completed the draft, hvlaws dealing witb
the licensing of bartenders and street
garbage.
Aid.  Needham explained the importance of steps being taken     to stop
the  prevalent      practice  of dumping
ashes on the streets.
Aid. Smythe said that matter
would receive attention iu the proposed bylaw.
MACKINAW  COATS
Mr. T. Steed, secretary of Fire
Brigade No. 1, wrote stating he had
been authorised by the members of
the Brigade to request the council to
supply members of the Brigade with
mackinaw coats.
The matter was referred to the
tire  committee.
TEACHERS CONVENTION.
Mr. R.D. Colpitts wrote intimating
that the Yale-Kootenuy Teachers
convention had decided to dispense
with the convention this year, and
suggesting thut if invitations were
sent from Kevelstoke he felt sure
that the Provincial Teachers convention would decide to meet in Revelstoke next year.
This intimation renders unnecessary
the grant of $Um authorised by tbe
council recently in view of the anticipated Teachers Convention here tbis
year.
It was decided to thank Mr. Colpitts for his suggestion.
i BYLAW  PASSED.
I The city electrician submitted estimates and figures covering the proposed improvement and extension of
the power and light plant as per bis
report on the subject  presented   last
; week, and the items were carefully
considered nnd explained. The work
includes the provision of improvements to the existing unit and the
installation of a new unit.
It was unanimously decided to introduce a bylaw providing for $|i»,tn>0
for Improvement and extension of
the electric light plant, and term of
thc debentures to be 20 yeurs amd
the interest 5'5  per cent.
The bylaw was introduced and
three times and passed, and March
30th fixed as the date (or submission
j to tbe ratepayers.
Martin Harvey's Visit
I The Edmonton engagement of Mr.
Martin Harvey, the distinguished
English actor, is an event tbat calls
[ for comment outside the columns devoted to dramatic news. It ia the
forerunner of what promises to he
' a new order of things in the Canadian theatrical world. Hitherto the
Dominion has received its attractions
almost wholly from the citleB of thc
United States. Of many of these one
' could not speak too highly but they
have all been designed to suit the
needs of our neighbors and in a great.
many cases have been altogether unsuitable for Canadian  presentation."
Mr. Harvey has come to Canada
under the auspices of an organization which has been formed for the
purpose of supplying from London
such plays as it is considered especially desirable for Canadians to see.
It is the product of tbe imagination
and energy of two well-known managers', Messrs William Holies and
Carl F. Leycl. Their record as producers shows that they are no mere
dreamers and no one must run away
with the idea that their present undertaking is in any sense a philanthropic one. Tbey do not appeal to
Canadian theatregoers to patronize
the companies which tbey bring here
simply because these come from
London. What they contend is that
under their scheme they can supply
plays that will better please Canadian audiences than those which come
from New York.
in view- of the success of such English actors as Willard, Forbes-Robert-
eon, Edward Terry, Lewis Waller and
others who bave come to ub at long
intervals from London there was
from the first no reason to doubt the
success which would be achieved in
bringing men of this slump through
on a regular system when they have
something to oiler that appeals to
us. But Mr. Harvey's tour has supplied absolutely convincing testimony
in this connection.
The Calgary Herald's report of the
performance there on Tuesdny even -
ing indicates that Alberta will be
unite in line with the other provinces In its support. The Herald de -
Clares that Mr. Harvey established a
new record for that city, in respect
both  to  attendance an 1  enthusiasm.
"Applause, spontaneous and thunderous" it adds, "greet"d every climax from every corner of the house,
which was filled to its utmost capacity. Hundreds of people who came
fe-r tickets in the few hours immediately preceding the play were turned away disappointed, and Ind the
capacity of the big bouse been twice
as large it would very likely have
been overtaxed to accommodate those
who wished to witness the perform -
ance."
Mr. Harvet is deserving of the hear
tiest kind of a welcome, both for his
own sane, as one who has always
stood for the very best, in his profession, and on account of the epoch-
making enterprise that he is associated with.—Edmonton Capitol, Editorial.
Buyers' Opportunity
Now is your opportunity to secure
bargains in the shape of reliable clothing, shoes and furnishings. As will
be seen from an announcement ap -
pearing elsewhere In this issue, tho
entire stock of the Revelstdke Clothing Company is to be offered on
most advantageous terms to local
buyers. This is a genuine sale und
the goods are reliable, varied and all
well known lines. Tbe sale starts on
(Saturday and is to ho continued for
two  weeks and   i'   will  afford  such    a
chance for real bargains as has rarely, if ever, been eiillalled locally.
There in sure to he a big rush to get
the pick of the huge stock, bo remember  the  opening date.
BOXING
Tonight's Exhibition
At the boxing exhibition announced
for tonight, Wednesday, at the opera•
house the chief attraction is a ten
round bout between Rough House
Charlie Bums and Bobby Evans. Thc
men are to weigh in at L35 pounds,
and u keen contest is assured. They
are old opponents and the latest reports are to the elfect that they will
take the riiii; in good condition.
Evans has done his preliminary work
at the lacal Y.M.C.A. gym, where bis
form has aroused great interest and
favorable comment and Bums is expected to be "in the pink" "when he
arrives for the fray.
The accommodation is ample and
good and as there are some capital
local bouts ns preliminaries a good
evening's sport should result.

HE WROTE
TO MOTHER
Jail-breaker Arrested in Revelstoke After Long Chase.
Idaho Sheriffs Luck When
Returning Despondent.
A few nights ago a convicted prisoner with a bad record who escaped
from jail at Boise City, Idaho, many
months ago was recaptured ut Kevelstoke in peculiar circumstances. In
fact the details, if shown in a picture drama at the movies, would be
generally regarded as very far fetched, although they arc undoubtedly
true and such as do much to demon-
Btrate the old adage that truth is
stranger  than  fiction.
Tin prisoner referred to sv.,s sentenced to a term of fifteen years after
being tried at Boise City, .end was
lodged   m  jail   |..r   the   night   pending
removal to the penitentiary the ne\t
day. But when the next day came he
had gone, having effected his escape
ie\ sawing through the bars of his
cell window, lie escaped within eigUt
hours of having been sentenced. Then
commenced a long and sys<-
search for him which was continued
fruitlessly for months.
Recently the Sheriff of Idaho got
on the track of the escaped man as
the result of the ex-prisoners kind -
ness iu remembering bis mother, t'.
whom be posted a letter and $50. The
mother lives in Kansas and a watch
having been maintained upon her correspondence when the (60 arrived it
helped to locate her Bl n, who had
posted   the   letter   from       Hear   Creek,
B. 0. Accordingly the Sheriff came
up to Hear Creek. There he was informed that the wanted man had left
the district some time ago to go
east. The sheriff Was accompanied
to Hear Creek by Provincial Constable Rothwell, of Kevelstoke, and
all the way back to Revelstoke was
down in the dumps at the failure of
his long chase. He st. pped od at
RevelBtoke for one night on his return journey. Now comes the sc -
quel, He registered at an hotel and
then set ofl tor a stroll round town.
He entered another hotel and walked
up to the desk and bad a 1< ok at tbe
register there. Then he turned round
and found himself face to face with
the man be wanted, who was sitting
on a seat directly behind him.
The recognition was instantaneous
and mutual. "Why," said the Sheriff, "I've been looking for you all
over the United States."
"And I guess you've got me," replied the crestfallen prisoner, who
was promptly secured and lodged ln
the local lock-up for the night.
The following morning it was a
very happy sheriff who pulled out on
tbe early train with his prisoner for
Boise City.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18,  1914
Although the report of the Canadian Department ol Mines is reduced
in value owing to the fact that the
statistics are a year late it makes
possible a few comparisons which are
Interesting, The total mineral output in LOU for the whole Dominion
was valued at $80,511,880, and for
I'.II'J at 8106,_79,4iJ7. Both in metallic and non-metallic products there
was a marked gain. In the former it
wus $16,067,330, which was more than
;|0 per cent; in the latter it was slO,-

Baseball Prospects
The Revelstoke baseball executive
met at Sicumous on Saturday night,
with delegates from Kamloops, Kelowna and Vernon, when the schedule
for   the    approaching season      was
drawn  up.
The fixtures Which will be published on Saturday, provide an interest-
Ing series of games in connection
with the Interior Baseball League,
and there is every reason to expect
an even more successful season than
last year.
Manager Webb is busy petting the
players into form and sizing up his
material with a view to the tilling of
positions, and President L. A. Howson is proving a tour of strength in
his new otliee.

at the office today, that's no reason
why you should take tbe "kids"

ii.ember you were a "kid" once yourself, and I'll venture to say you were
twice as bad ns yours are. 'Phone
down to Macdonald's nnd get seats
for "Mutt and Jeff in Panama," and
laughthe darned trouble over with
the kids and you'll all be happy. Be

Owing to un oversight the follow -

At the conclusion of Mrs. McLean's
papier on thc "Aigrettes" MrB. Rob-
biiin gave a slim t but interesting and
instructive talk on the life und example of the lute Lord Struthcona.
before sitting down Mrs. Kobblns ex-
I ressed the regret ot the club that
..a the occasion o! the douth ol this
one of our country's greatest and
most prominent men, no notices or
pui.iic demonstration oi Boirow wus
made in our town. Nothing of any
nature to impress on the minds of
Uu' young children the qualities and
achievements .if the Hie just passed
away. And she put, before the club
their duly In tins regard to see that.
In future on any like occasion steps
be t alien to memorialise the event in
smii manner that the youngest, child
will have reason to remember the demonstration and the reason for it.

Gazette to the effect that the Dominion Order-in-council granting iiermiB-
sion to the Canadian Pacitic Railway
to construct a tunnel near Rogers
Pass has heen passed. In this connection it may be recalled that during the recent session of the Provincial Legislature an act was passed
withholding the right of miners to
locate claims in the vicinity of the
tunnel   location.

allowing lotteries or ruffles for charitable or religious purposes. If ministerial Influence In religious or char-
it able matters were sufficiently powerful there would he no need of objecting to a law on the subject.
