TH_I ADVANCE OF REVELSTOKE
THREE IMPORTANT
ANNOUNCEMENTS
Land and Timber Reorganisation
Dates From To-day: What It Means
NATIONAL PARK
PROJECT PROGRESSING
New Post Office : Tenders to
be Invited Very Shortly
It is with the greatest pleasure that we make public three
items ot' news ot' deep interest and fraught with promise for
the future of Revelstoke.
'The first and most important as regards immediate good
effects is that from to-day the Land and Timber 011 lee for the
Kootenays is to be located at Revelstoke. This is a welcome
recognition, not only of the importance of Revelstoke, but of
the fact that the powers that be strongly realize the right of
Revelstoke to be regarded as the centre for the diatrict for
the transaction of this important branch of Dominion atl'airs,
and have seen to it that R.'velstoke has come into her own.
The second announcement is in connection with the long
expected New Post Oilier. Tenders will be called for in the
very near future for the erection of a building which will
adequately serve the purposes and at the same time prove a
valuable addition to the architectural features of the town.
The third announcement is that matters in connection with
the Dominion assistance in regard to the Revelstoke National
Park project are progressing rapidly and most favorably. The
estimates are now before the House at Ottawa, and they include an appropriation of viti.UUO for the Revelstoke National
Park.
The happy results which have attended the above projects
for tne advance of Revelstoke have been attained largely as
the outcome of the untiring efforts of our representative ai
Ottawa, Mr. R. F, Green, and it is only just that full acknowledgement and sincere thanks should be accorded Mr. Green.
NOTICE.!
Register Your Vote!
if you nre a mule Uritish subject, -I years ol age, a resldetat ol
Uritish Columbia tor six months, and ol tbe Kevelstoke Riding for
one month you aro entitled to huve your inline inserted on the
voter's list. But you must make personal application to tbis eflect
and sign a form provided lor this purpose. And m order to have
yonr name Included on the list, which will be revised on the Third
Monday in .May you must make application before the sixth day of
April.
In the Kevelstoke District there may be qualified voter s who
nre not registered as such. This should not be, but it is always
the ease, with the result that when an election comes round many
are found bitterly complaining that they have no vote. The fault
of course,  is entirely their own.
Ample facilities are afforded for all to register, and the Revelstoke Conservative Association would urge all residents of this
Hiding who are duly entitled to exercise this franchise to see without delay that their names arc enrolled on the Register ol voter's.
Forms aad all information can be obtained and tbe necessary
declaration taken by upplying to A. B. Kincaid, President City
Association, H.J. I'arker, Secretary, and W.R. Reid, Arrowhead,
President   District   Association,   01   R.   D.   Macdonald,   Secretary.

THE LANDS OFFICE.
In connection With the land aud
timber oilice at Revelstoke, a representative of the "Mail-Herald" waa
fortunate enough this morning to
run across Mr. J.W. Martin, of Calgary, Inspector of Dominion Land
Agencies, who is in town, in con -
ncction with the transfer of records,
etc., from the Kamloops office, to
Mr. Wadman's office in the Canadian
Hank of Commerce building, which is
at present the scene of great activities, and to obtain from him
Information as to thc important change made as from today and the results which may be
conlidently expected.
"Hitherto," said Mr. Martin, "all
the business for tbe Eastern half of
the Railway Belt, all thc land, timber and other business in connection
with Dominion lands, has been transacted at Kamloops, with sub-divie -
ions at Revelstoke, Salmon Arm and
Golden. In future all such government land business, including mining
matters, will be transacted from the
Revelstoke office, with a sub brunch
at Golden. The people of this dis -
trict will have the advantage of being able to transact their land business direct at Revelstoke and of being in personal touch with the land
office and its officials. It will not be
necessary for them to communicate
with Kamloops at all. The territory
of the Revelstoke district will be all
the Railway Belt east of a line between ranges ,'i and I, west of the
Sixth Meridian.
"Any lands business hitherto trnns
acted was subject to tatiflcation ut
Knmloops, and any delay occasioned
thereby operated against the residents in this district. The dates ol
transactions,   (or   instance,   were  thc

I their representations came to naught
I dates of thc dealing witb thc mutters
l at Kamloops. Now all these matters
will be directly dealt with by Mr.
Wadman or one of his stafl. Thut
should prove a decided advantage to
Revelstoke people and bring much
business into the town.
"The business of the Revelstoke office us now constituted will include
all homestead inspections and mat -
tcrs appertaining thereto, which will
bc attended to direct without refer -
ence to or the intervention of auy
other office. That in itself is a decided convenience to those in this dis
trict who have such business to trans
act ind will mean that people will
come to Kevelstoke to transact such
business instead of going to Kani -
loops, There are lands which in the
near future will become available for
settlement and prospective settlers
and others interested will come to
Revelstoke.
"All the records have already been
transferred from Kamloops."
Mr. Smith, who had charge of the
business of thc timber department at
Kamloops. is also in town supervis-
ing the transfer of documents from
that department to the Revelstoke
office.
Thc establishment of thc land and
timber office on the new basis outlined will of necessity mean an :n-
crease in tin stall under Mr Wadman
—who has been promoted from sub-
land and timber agent to the position of Crown Timber and Land
Agent for the Kootenay District
—another welcome feature.
There is no doubt that the personal efforts of our representative at
Ottawa. Mr. R.F. Green. Ml'., are
largely responsible for this happy
recognition of Kevelstoke claims and
advancement.
This announcement is particularly
pleasing In view of what wis cener-
ally retarded as the injustice done to
Revelstoke in 1910 when S rearrangement ol land and timber office organ-
iMtlon was made by Mr Oliver which
was bitterly resented lure. It will he
remembered that  at   that  time   there
were strong protests made by all local bodlw and organisations, the lum
lei'inii'ii being particularly active with
Ibe Liberal tSSOClation, the Board of
Trade and the citizens generally.  All
The new arrangement which comes
into force today means that the just
ness of the lull) . presentations has
been forced upon the authorities and
tbat Revelstoke has come into her
own again.
THE  I'ARKi
There  is  every   indication  that  the
sum on the estimates in aid of     thc
Revelstoke      National   Park,   $16,000-,'
will  be available shortly.      The local
community   has  rccogil.sed  the      importance  of  the  development  and  e»
tension  of  the park  scheme for years
past, und has done its share towards
ensuring that the value of this asset
I should      be  fully   realised.     But  the
I question  of -nances has lately threat
lened to delay   matters, and the grant
of ,$16,U"0 from the Dominion government Is all  the    more     welcome   on
that  account. The gruut carries more
than  the     handing  over of    tbe sum
mentioned;   it  ensures the  Kevelstoke
1  Park  ranking amongst   the
officially recognised scenic wonders of
the Dominion, and thus obtains      at
once tiie widest possible publicity for
our  local      attraction;    to  tourists.
What  the  development  of  the  tourist
attractions of the  Kevelstoke       dis -
trict means  it is  impossible at    this
stage  to state  definitely,  but it      is
a very big thin^, aad tbe completion :
of the Park     is the lirst     step, now   '
rendered  possible,  towaids the     ful-
lilliiicnt of long cherished ideals   and ,
the attainment of a     most desirable
end.   The      citizens    of      Revelstoke,
rightly regarding this matter    as of
vital    import,    have  steadily  lniBled
themselves in  movements directed towards the obtaining of such recognition as has now been accorded,    and
they owe much to Mr   R.   F. Green,
Ml'.,  for nis indefatigable endeavors
and powerful advocacy of thc claims
of the park  and     the desires of the
residents.
THE POST OFFICE
Revelstoke possesses a particularly
■■ Court House, and creditable
buildings in its business centre, but
it has long been acknowledged that
a new, up to dute, commodious post
• ■dice building is an urgent requisite.
It is indeed pleasing to know tbat
the needs of the town and district in
this regard are to be met. Mr. R.F.
Green, M.i'., has made this mattci a
particular bobby, no other description |i adequate to apply to the manner in which our member hus worked
in connection with the provision of a
really handsome adequate post office
huildinc for Revelstoke. Tenders for
the erection of such a structure are
to be called lor In the very near future, and thc reproach that has hitherto attached to the town will be removed in the best possible fashion.
The building will include suitable accommodation for the Dominion offices here. Including the department of
lands and timber, the Customs Office,
and  all either  In.iiiini'in  branches.
Tbe citizens oi Revelltoke and district should appreciate, as wc believe
they will when thc facts are published, the SUCCMSfUl Sflortl "f Mr. K.l'\
ureen. M.I1., in connection with these
important matters.

Ontario Ih awakening to the fact
that its high hcIiooI system is n failure, nnd that all these institutions
must be transformed. Some ol them
are being turned Into agricultural
high schools nml some into technical
schools. There is a great awakening
among the teachers. Here is a letter
from u high school teacher in eastern Ontario, winch is published in
the Canadian Courier, nud which re-
v..i!s     the     fact.     that,   we  do    these
things better in Vancouver: "Personally, 1 am much interested in hk
ricultura] and technical education,
and ,im "I tbe opinion that our government and the department of education, are not attacking the problem seriously at all. The high schools
of this province are engaged in prc-
purlng girls for the teaching profession, a few boys for the 'learned'
professions, and a few more lor engineering and business. A large proportion drop out without any real
preparation for anythipi; and go to
swell the number of bank clerks, etc.
Very few enter any mechanical or
technical trade or farming. Those
who do enter the latter get no benefit from their education except the
general benefit Of mental training.
The high school here is in the centre
of a line farming district, und the
tow n possesses two good Industries,
yet this school is not catering to
the needs of the community at all,
and very few pupils benefit the local
industries, This condition is true all
over the province, and the consequ -
ent economic waste is incalculable.
We are really trying to give the boy
of the twentieth century the education of a mediaeval monk plus a
smattering ol the natural sciences
and modern languages. The whole
thing bears as much relation to the
• inomic and social needs of our country as the Chinese alphabet does.
The remedy lies in establishing agricultural and technical secondary
schools, not only in the cities that
can afford to pay for them, but in
the towns and counties. These scho-
ds should be freed entirely from local control, and supported by the
state. The teachers should be paid
at leust as well as the inside civil
service, and should be hired, raid and
stationed by thc department. The
municipal school boards have never
i me one single thing to advance ed-
ni at ion, and never will; economy and
' ■ t efficiency is their i nly idea; and
as long as it costs money ior eflici ■
(lit teachers and well-equipped schools, the school boards will fight progress. I know what I say will not
be agreed with by those who ring the
changes on the 'humanities' and 'cul-
; are.' and who shout 'materialist,'
when one talks of making education
a training for earning one's bread
and butter and for subduing nature
to man's material needs. However,
I hope to see some steps taken in the
directions I have indicated before
very a,any years. This subject is too
large for a letter, and I am afraid
yi u will not^care to read all I have

It is understood that the conference reached no definite conclusion.
The various international and Imperial aspects of the problem were discussed and a number of suggestions
were made. One wss that a conference 'ef all the Overseas Dominions
who were interested in thc- problem
be called. This was regarded as
hardly feasible. At the conference,
Sir Richard made the following state
ment to your correspondent.
"1 am very hopeful Ihat in a short
time the whole situation will be treated (rom a national standpoint in
a manner acceptable te. all the parties interested."
There was incidentally discussed
the question of extending the Order-
in Council, which exnires on March
31, which excludes all artisans and
laborers from Uritish Columbia ports
Ko order tins yet been made but it
will likely be extended for another
six  months.

Aid. Needham said there were many
inconsistencies in regard to the charges and the bylaw committee should
go into the matter.
It was stated that the Bylaw committee was considering these points.
Aid. Needham said the present system was not fair; the charges to
householders, generally speaking
were fair, hut other charges were
not equitable. Pipes of different capacity were put into various build -
ings and so on.

B.C. LAND
THROWN
OPEN
Eighty  thousand acres  of land adjacent to the     Grand    Trunk Pacific
Railway,  which is to     be completed
from  ocean  to ocean  on  April  Kith,
a large proportion bordering on   the
railroad, will be opened to pre-empt- [
ion  in the valley  of the  South Fork
of the Fraser River in June, accord- |
ing to au announcement made yester- '
day by the Hon. Wm.  R. Ross, Minister of Lands.
When the work of building the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was begun this valley, which contains a
large amount of agricultural land,
favorably situated, -was placed in reserve. In l'.lCT a reserve was created
under which a stip of six miles covering the valley was reserved for pre
emptor. Now that the railroad is
completed the agricultural lands are
being opened to the settler.
The land being opened to settle
ment is in two parts the eastern half
stretching on either side of McBride,
tbe young city '.mi miles from the eastern border of the Province, where a
divisional point has heen created,car
shops, large yards, etc., are being
built, and a city is in its infancy.
The wenern half stretches from Willow Station on the G.T.P., not far
east from Fort George to join the
other  part of the tract.
The lots in the eastern half will be
opened to entry by pre-emption at
McBride on June 1st at '.1 a.m., a
special office being opened there by
the Laud Commissioner of the District for one week in order to give
those who seek a homestead there an
opportunity to file their recoeds at
the nearest city to thc land, und after a week records will be made at
the office of the government agent.
for the district at Fort George, The
bus in the western half will bc opened to entry liy pre-emption on .Tune

tern half will be opened for a week,
beginning at '.I a.m. on June 1st, was
the first townslte laid out in the ilis-

pilots, too, both in the military aud
naval wings of tho Royal Flying

are second to none in daring and
prowess. Too much stress, in fact,

by far the most remarkable plight yet

the best ol many nearly equal in merit that have heen undertaken in all

The two train robbers and murderers, Harry Matthews and George E.
Ball, wanted by tbe police authorities for the hold-up of the Greai Nor
thorn train at Samish station, near
Bellingham, ou February 29 last and
who murdered threo passengers on
the train, have been in Victoria and
have been under aires'. This fact is
shown by the records of the local department.
Matthews and Ball, under the respective aliases of Tim Binning and
Harry Wade, were arrested by De-
tectlvc Perdue and Coastal le Harper
on August 18, 1307, on a charge of
Laving stolen a quantity of goods
from Uu' Queen's Hotel here.-Matthews, or Binning as he was then
called, was convicted and sentence,1
to four months In jail. Ball, then
the alias ni Wade, was acquitted.
The ma ei Lacroy, who is now In tbe
Vancouver jail awaiting trial Ior an
ttack upon a policeman, has made a
fession   that   his  companion      In
that crime was  Matthews, who   tired
and later turned  up aa one of      the
train robbers.   Lacroy, who has given what information the police   now

A RAILWAY
SCOUT
A railway scout built on the lines
of a baseball scout for the big leagues, is the latest innovation on the
Canadian Pacific Railway. In announcing the proposal today, Mr. F.
E. Trautman, publicity commissioner
of the company, said:
"It unfortunately happens iu large
organizations that many deserving
employees remain stationary instead
of advancing in the service on account of their environment or owing
to not coming under the purview of
those who recommend men for promo
tion. With a view to bringing the
management in as close personal
touch ns possible with all the men
employed on this vust transportation
system, a new arrangement has just
been inaugurated by those conducting
the company's business. Under this
system, the otlicers will be required
to make reports twice a year, in
June and December, en the service
rendered by every officer and em ■
ployec under his immediate jurisdiction. In this report an account will
bc given of an employee's disposition
attention to business, loyulty, zeal,
and particularly ol thc tactful and
courteous manner with which he
deals with the patrons of the company. Realizing that fairness and
courtesy nre one of the greatest assets in the success of any company,
greater stress will be laid on the degree in which thnt qualification la
possessed.
"It has been made a rule, however,
thnt should un ollicer find it necessary to make any adverse comment
on the services or qualilications ol
an employee, that employee must be
Called in and shown thc report and
instructed to initial it with nny comment, he may wish to make. This report will go ultimately to the vice-
president. Unfortunately, human nature is not perfect and this means is
being adopted to prevrnt nny possibility of a man being 'knocked'
Without biH knowledge.
"In addition to thesa reports a
gentleman who is a good judge ol
human nature, of kindly disposition,
whose inline hus not hern dlvulgod tn
the stall, has been selected who will
travel over tbe road ns a passenger,
.and  In  that capacity  or  as a shipper

or consignee will come into continual contact with the various employers and his instructions are to
look for the good points in employees and to draw attention to, and
send in thc names of any of tbe staff
whose courtesy, zeal, loyalty, ambition and knowledge marks them out
as above the ordinary and likely material  for advancement.
"In any large concern today one of
the chief and possibly the principle
concern of those in charge is rinding
suitable men for the openings which
arc continually occurring and it is
thought by the vice-president of the
Canadian Pacific Railway that by inaugurating such a system it would
prevent the overlooking of deserving
men and to bc the means of bringing
to notice men in the various grades
of thc service who are fit for and deserving of better positions.
" There is probably no service in
the world with thc chance.) of promotion and advancement to men of
thc right type greater than thc railroad service, but the trouble is to
find these men and then bring out
the belt that is In them. The sending
of a man over the rond to look out
for material is something like the sya
leni adopted by all the major lengue
baseball clubs who send out scouts
over the road to visit the gnmes ol
the different baaebal] leagues for no
other r'uson than to pick out men
who will he their first-class players
later on."

B.C. TIMBER
ROYALTY BILL
U.SA. Eulogy
A Washington     letter to a number
of uewspupers  in the  United  States, 1
prints the following relative to    the .
recent Timber Hoyalty Dill passed at
the last session of the Legislature:
"Tbe Canadian Province of Dritish
Columbia is showing the way to all.
other governments in the matter of
doing things for the common people.
The B.O. Legislature passed a law;
introduced by the Minister of Lands,
Hon. Win. R, Ross, which assures to
the citizens of that Province an income within ten years of three mil- |
lions of dollars a year from royal -
ties on publicly-owned timber. This
act, according to information which
comes to interested public men in
Washington, does for publicly-owned
timber In Uritish Columbia, what
thc conservationists, under the leadership of QlBord Pinchot, have beeu
trying to secure for the people of the
United States in the matter of this
nation's water powers.
"The act retains in the Provincial
government, for the people, the fee
simple title to all timber lands, it
permits the taking of timber claims
one mile square at an annual rental
of §1*20 per claim, and for the pay- '
ment to the government of a stump-
age price which rises gradually with
the increased vulue of timber. Under
the old act of 1905, the stunipage
price per thousand feet was 50 cents.
The new-' act increases it to .."> ceuts
a thousand feet, effective in 1915 and
provides that live years later there
will be added to the royalty price 2o
percent of the increased value of lum
ber at that time above a minium in
price of $18.00 per thousand each live
years thereafter the same thing will
be done again, the percentage taken
by the government to increase gradually from 2"i to IU percent, tbo
whole arrangement covering a period of about  10 years.
This means, first, that tbe lumbermen get a reasonable profit out of
their operations—the government takes nothing unless the price is above
$1-8.00 11 thousand. It means further,
that the government, the people,
share in the increased value of their
timber. It establishes a great profit-sharing, co-operative principle, in
which the government and thc timber operators are partners. The gov
ernment retains the title to tbe land
. and tbe right to prescribe the way in
which the timber shall be cut. The
people's interest Is protected, and at
the same time lumbermen are en -
ii mi aged to take up holdings and develop the timber industry.
"The great lesson for the United
States in this B.O. Royalty Act lies
in the recognition by the Provincial
government tbat the people should
share in the increasing vulue of their
own property—a principle which American conservationists under the
leadership of Pinchot, have been and
are lighting to huve enforced in the
development and use ol public water-
powers in, the United States."

THE ROYAL SHOE STORE    HOWSON BLOCK
In view of the vcry considerable
amount of public attention that huH
been given to tho great 6-foot reflect
ing telescope to be erected by the
Dominion government, the following
letter from Mr. Dennett, .M.I'., to
the Calgary Board of Trade will bc
read with interoBt: "Thc chief as -
tronomer, in writing mc regarding
the selection of Calgary for thc erection of u new etelescopo bii\h 'While
the lirst meteorological requirement,
tin- prevalence of line weather and
tbe absence of clouds, is well fuiiui-
i-d   at Calgary,   it   haB  been  found   by
observational  tests made nt  Medic
ine 11.el  and 1 i.inIT (as typical point*)
that,  with  apparent clearness,   there
may   be an      unsteadiness  in   the  atmosphere    -which seriously interferes
with telescopic definition. Tbis     un -
steadiness    is      probably      connected
with the large range of temperature
from     day to night and during the
night,'     which      prevails gtnerally to
the  KnBt of the     Itocky  Mountains.
Ab this unsteadiness      would  prevent
i the best  use of the telescope, wc have
I been  looking for a place where      thi
I temperature conditions  an.l thc    atmospheric    conditions tics with are
j better.' "
