A unique Industry winch he is con-
Bdent will prove successful, profitable
and capable of wide expansion, has
been established hy George S. Adams the McKenzie avenue jeweler, on
his runcli near the city limits. It is
a farm tor breeding murtcn and On
it already arc thirteen of the quaint
little creatures whose lur is so much
prized  by   women  of  fashion.
Mr. Adams, who hus the faculty of
seeing opportunities that arc overlooked ny others, came to Kevelstoke
last July and took a homestead with
thc express Intention of taking ud-
vantage of the Bpeclal facilities for
raising marten which the Kevelstoke
district niters, for from the neighborhood ol Revelstoke some oi the
best marten skins that the country
produces are obtained. In addition
ranch hi- has given contracts to trap-
to the thirteen marten now on his
pers to obtain  for     him seven  more
Before coming to Kevelstoke he had
made arrangements for procuring live
marten from trappers and the lirst
denizen of his unique breeding establishment was obtained last January.
The animals have all been captured
in the Big Bend country or at the
back of Mount -McKenzie. They are
interesting little animals and although shy, so thnt it is necessary
that they Bhould not he disturbed by
strangers, they already know .Mrs.
Adams who feeds them and will eat
out of her hand or ctimb upon her
dress. They are ■; i't in a wire enclosure on the Kevelstoke marten
farm.   They  i particularly active
und  In  their Wild  slate can  run down
n rabbit. Me ■. squirrels, rabbits,
and birds are their natural food,
hut they are thri li en a mc it diet
under the cure of Mr, and Mrs. Adorns.
Mr.  Adams Intends to sell the produce  of  bis  f  : .,  :.t  breeding    pur -
P083S although the skins of the an
inn.Is  kept   in  C ate  usually
more valuable tb •  of the wild
animals on account of their being
obtained In prime c ndltlon.
The marten is of the cat or weasel iri'-ie. It is larger than a mink
and its fur Is in three grades pale,
brown  • nd  dark eik lar    being
most highly prized. The pelt.s vary
in value from •■--',*>" to 850 each.
Unlike the mink tl B marten is a dry
land animal entirely. It has qluws,
and a bushy tail md can climb trees
ns easily as the m< ll active cat.
The marten bra is 01 e a year and
there nre usually from two to seven
in the litter. Th • fur is in eager demand.

MOUNT REVELSTOKE

Order-in Council Pass-cl Yesterday Revelstoke
Now Tourist Capital of Rockies Efforts of
Kootenay Member and Local Associations
Crowned  with Success—Boon to City.
VAN HOR-NE
BLOCK SOLD
Purchasers   Have  Option   on
Properties Standing On
Same Block
A telegram was received this morning    Irom it. K. Qreen, member for
.Kootenay, notifying T. J. Wadman,
Dominion Lands Agent, that an ord-
er-in-coiuicil was passed yesterday to
set aside the area embracing the
summit of Mount Kevelstoke and the
entire Clack na Cooditi Range as a
national  nark.
For two years the Conservative
Association, the Bourd of Trade, the
j Progress Club und other organisations have been impressing upon the
government   the  advantage  of  creat-
j ing this park In the vicinity of Rev-
I elstoke and Mr. Oreen has tuken special  interest In the matter and    has
I lost no opportunity of urging the
request    upon  the  government.   YeB-
I terday's order-ln-councll is the gratifying result.
The land in question is ideal for
park purposes and the urea contains
scenery   probably  unexcelled,  not on-
j ly in Canada hut     in the world and
.the park will undoubtedly I ccome one
of the great playgrounds of the Am-
i i ll an  continent.
The decision of the government   Is
of vast Importance to Revelstoke. It
means the official recognition of the
city as the great tourist capital of
the Canadian Rockies,
; The establishment of this great
national nark will turn the eyes of
tourists toward Kevelstoke and will
cause the Canadian Pacific railway to
redouble its efforts to secure for its
lines the great trafflo thut the park
■night,  attract.
It will be the cause of the copious
advertising of Revelstoke throughout
the continent and in Europe and
wherever tourists are to he fuund.
It will in all probabilty mean the
speedy completion of the automobile
road to the summit of Mount Kevelstoke.
j The park will be a source of profit
, to Revelstoke, will mean the rapid
' growth of the city, and will provide
for its citizens a means of recreation
unexcelled  in the Dominion.
Mr. Green, through whose persistent efforts and influen :e at Ottawa,
the boon to the city has been mainly
secured is expected to send further
I details by mail to those chiclly interested.
The Van Home block on McKenzie
aveuue al present occupied by Q. B,
Adams, joweler, and the London Oys
ter and Chop house has been sold
this week to the syndicate which hud
recently     purchased the     Revelstoke
Oyster and Chop house. The deal
was concluded hy ll. il. Horobln,
I The same syndicate has taken options on the buildings containing the
Trueraan studio, Hemlnger Uros.
barber shop, Hobson's bakery and
Reid and Barton photographers.
Should these options be taken up
the purchasing syndicate would huve
control of half a McKenzie avenue
block nt the extreme end of thc street
abutting on thc C.P.R. trucks and
there will no doubt be much speculation as to the purpose for which the
block hus been purchased. The entire property if the options arc taken uii will cost neurly $50,000. .Mr.
Horobln who will leave on Sunday in
connection with the deal says that
the purchasers state that they are
acquiring the property for investment purposes.

COUNCIL SELLS
CITY BONDS
m Soiariss be
Paid to Aldermen
Shall salaries be paid hy the city
for the services of aldermen? That
was one of the questions debated at
the meeting of the city council last
night.
Aid. Needham was stiongly in favor of the suggestion. He said that
paj was necessary to enable a poor
man to serve on t.he council. The
aldermen U..s: money in uttending to
the city's business and often they
at fleeted civic business because they
could not ai'.ord to give it preference
over their own. If aldermen were
paid they would give the civic busi-
i.e.-s letter attention.
Aid. Bourne did not think that the
time was ripe for paying salaries to
aldermen but his colleagues favored
thc proposal. Aid. Bell thought that
•:'iio a year would not be excessive
remuneration for an alderman's loss
of time.
On the suggestion of the Mayor.
Who also approved of the idea the
bylaw committee was instructed to
find out what was being paid by cities similar to Revelstoke.

Cement  Sidewalks
The necessity of cement sidewalks
was discussed and the public works
committee was instructed to report
on the question to a special meeting
to be held on Tuesday, the idea being
to construct whatever sidewalks are
necessary  by local improvement.
L. Howson and J. E. B. Dickson
appeared for the baseball club regarding the enclosing of thc baseball grounds on Ninth street. Mr.
Howson suggested canvas screen,
which was estimated to cost $0M
the baseball boys promising to supply thc poles. Mr. Dickson said that
permission had been obtained to carry the fence to thc river bank. In
Kamloops, Lethbridge and elsewhere
similar fences had been erected.
Mayor McKinnon promised that the
council would consider the mntter
and communicate with thc baseball
club.
H. N. Coursier asked the council
for relief respecting his sewer tax.
The sewer was a main sewer and
had been built as an outlet for the
city. He was taxed on 27.*i feet. Referred to committee for consideration

Dog Taxes friust be
Paid at Once
(Continue 1 on Page    Four.)
An  animated  debate  on  the  collection  of  dog  taxes  was  introdUO '.
Mayor       McKinnon   ut the   council
meeting last night.
Aid. .Smythe said that thc Chiel
ol Police reported that the majority
of due taxes had been collected except in a few cases in which the o'lli-
ets had promised   to  pay.
Aid.   Needham    declared    that be
knew of live persons who had not
been  asked   to   pay   the  tax.
Aid. McSorley said that thc duel
had reported to lum that he had
collected $400, more than had ever
been collected  before.
Aid. Hi 11 remarked that a few dogs
running around sometimes looked like
many.
The Mayor did not think the police
went after thc tax. Aid. Smythe
thought they did the best they could
but the Mayor contended thnt a
house to house canruss should be
made.
Aid. Hell said the police came to
his house but found thnt he did not
pOSSeSS  even  a   cat.
Aid. Needham declared that many
taxes hail not been paid. He said
that he would prepare a list of some
of the names and produce it before
the council. A. McRae had not paid
the tax for his dogs.
Aid. Dell remarked that the dogs
in question were not in thc city limits and no tax could be collected.
It was finally decided that the
Chief should be instructed to make
a linal effort to gather In delinquents
and report to thc council at Its next
meeting.

address by 0. T. Blbb I n mining and
the   vust  possibilities   that  it      con -
tains for the province and f"r the
Reveistoi.e district in particular the
board of trade at its meeting on
Thursday evening decided to appoint
a special mining committee to go lu
to the question and to take what
ever stepB may seem advisable to
promote the mining interests of the
district. Mr. Blbb was enthusiastic
as to the richness of the mining territory of which Revelstoke is the
centre and thc board thoroughly endorsed his view thai the time had
arrived to take serious steps to interest thc capital necessary to development
.Mr.  Blbb in his address showed the
commanding   position  of  Revelstoke
in  relation to the known  mining areas.    He spoke of the difficulties that
■had been encountered in  the  past   in
. regard      to  concentration,   eupecia
; with respect to the zir.e contents   of
the ores and showed bow recent k .
ledge and modern appliances were overcoming  those  difficulties.    The  ab
sence  of any smelter in  the  country
capable of economically  treating sine
ores and the penalty  imposed on the
zinc contents of silver lead  ores had
heen  seriously  detrimental,   and mon
ey  bad  been     wasted  m  the  dumps.
With gold ores trouble had also been
encountered. Orapbite n I   ■   gold

Conditions were now far me.re fav

Douglas Fir is Tree
with Great Future
There arc trees in Canada whose
commercial Importance is clearly on
the wane, According to one of tho
latest bulletins of the Dominion Forestry Brunch, the valuo of tho white
pine lumber cut in 1912 was one and
a half million dollars loss than in
1911. The cut of hemlock decreased
.'10 per cent; tbat of cedar decreasod
27 per cent, and tamarack, the lumber production ol which has decreased uvcr 411 per cent, in thc last two
years, bids fair soon to become commercially extinct. Uf the six leading
tree-Hpecb'S in Canada, Douglas Br
was the only one wliose lumber production Increased in 1912. In tbo
province nf British Columbia alono,
Douglas   lir  formed  over  07.7 per cent
of tbe tntai lumber cut, ami British
Columbia is at present by far tho
richest timber province in Canada,
containing, according to some estimates, ime hull the merchantable
timber wealth oi the Dominion.
Tbis remarkable tree obtains a
height 'if nver Jlin feet witb a trunk
in to 12 feet in diameter, forming,
alone or mixed with hemlock, great
forests extending 100 [piles north of
tbe International Boundary. Its natural range extends In Canada to tho
eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, where it grows to
a height of 130 feet and a diameter
of four fiit, and is considered one of
the most Important timber trees on
the Dominion Rocky Mountains For-
tst Reserve, which covers nn area of
nearly  21,000 square miles.
It is also widely distributed throughout thc western United States, b«-
Ing able to stand considerable climatic variation .uiel being practically
immune to insects or tungus diseases.
Dr. C.8. Sargent, one of tbe greatest authorities on American     trees,
describes the W md as bard, durable,
and largely used for all kinds ol construction. According to a COCODt
Dominion Forestry Dranch publication on the "Wood-using Industries
ni Ontario,' it is increasing in popularity in that  province for decorative
purposes as   'it bus an    attracttlve
grain and Ugure Wnich readily lends
itself to staining." Douglas fir construction timber is shipped to      ull
pal '.   e'f  the  world.
The Douglas iir has been introduced
into Europe With great success and
large forests have been planted which
■ ow yielding handsome profits.
Germ my and France purchasi every
ynir large     quantities of seed from
the  Indians  in British Columbia.

On a recent Sunday atternoon at a

assembled patients, nurses nnd doctors. In a most vivid manner he was
describing the great peace, contentment and happiness to he had in the

CHURI 11  AS ADVERTISER.
I-*.il I.-1 Bei nard V'aughan, in an ad-
dress to the Aldwycb Club, declared
that religion was the only thing
worth advertising. Nevertheless, he
admitted, other things needed advei
us, ment—even footwear, clothes or
soap. He belonged, he said, to the
; oldest and biggest advertising linn
on the planet—the Roman Catholic
Church.
The church believed that she had
wares that defied competition, and
she put them in her shop window,
proclaiming for all she wus worth,
"Come, even you without money
and  buy."
Why had they music, the ritual and
preaching in the church, if it were not
to advertise the supplies they possessed for the demands of the human
soal' In view of these being so
splendid, they were justified in making use of advertising.
"The  Roman Catholic Church,"  he
r.included, "to use the phraseology of
the  United  States,  has  'heen  on  the
oh,  'J.CO'i years,  and    has  'delivered
'ie foods' all tne time."

A SIGHT FOR THK CODS.
For the lover of nature nothing
can he more enchanting than a jour-
i,e y up the four miles of road, as-
cendlng a thousand feci toward the
Bummlt Of Mount Revelstoke, either
leisurely on foot, on horseback or in
the   more   impetuous  automobile.
Delightful as this trip Is at every
season, the present i.-i perhaps the
time  when  nature and  the  marvelous
Bcenery can be most perfectly enjoyed. The fresh green of the new-
born leaves of the poplars, tbe verdure of Lhe grass, the olive tint ofthe
catkins, the more sombre shade of
the firs combine to create a harmony
Ol color that other seasons may riv-
;tl     but surety   cannot   excel.    The
' ountain brooks babble and sparkle
in the  rays Of  the   vernal   sun and  all
nature seems te. rejoice at its release
from the bondage of winter. The air
blows pure   and Invigorating,  waft-
with   it  the  scent  of    the  pines

Mr.   Kllpatrlck  believed  that,       the
present time would be the beginning
of mining in the district.. Timber
and rial rstate were quiet, but. there
was always money for speculation,
and be believed that it would now
be available for mining. He suggested   thai   the  business  men   might   (lev
' ei.ni a claim themselves to show their
confidence,
Mr, Blbb believed tbat such a pol
icy would secure quick results. He
said that tliere was already n plant,
in New Denver to deal with the zinc
problem and mentioned the Lanark,
the Silver Dollar and the Hva as
mines likely to soon resume operations. Dr. Schurz a representative
of the German smelter combine had
been investigating the Windermere
district, Mr. Hibb thought Revelstoke the logical spot for a zinc
plant.

fldence  on  the      part  of  the  business

every confidence in the mining in -

Lake district. He advised the appointment of a standing committee
on  mining and systematic advertising
Mr. McKinnon believed that if the
board were as enthusiastic and confident as Mr. Hibb there would bc no
delay in thc solution of the problem.
Mr. Bibb's visit would do much to
restore enthusiasm.
i*. R. Macdonald remarked that
money was no object to thc big companies and literature should be sent
to them.
Aid. Hell proposed that the business men should start a claim and
make a  shipment.

of the disadvantages with which they
had to contend was that many ljirgc

PROTECTING  PIGS.
During the first duys of his life the
pig    is not  very resistant to unfavo-
able surroundings.      Cold    and damp
quarters nnd  clumsy  sows have been
the cause of a  large part of the mortality  in litters.   During cold weather the tendency is to supply large quantities of straw for bedding.     This
makes it difficult for the young pigs
to get  "out from under" and  many I
of them    are     crushed   by the sow.
Small amounts of cut straw arc bet- '
ter.   A guard rail about eight inches
wide and      nailed   to  the wall  about
eight inches from the floor all     the '
way round  will  keep  the  pigs    from
being   snuee7cd      against  the     wall. '
When pigs arc vcry     sn all a lantern I
hung in the portable hog house   will
make them comfortable and save     n j
good mnnv thnt otherwise would not !
pull  through.

The outlook for the peach crop ol
1914 near St. Catharines, Ontario, is
the most dismal in a quarter of a
century. The consenus of opinion
imong growers points to a greatly
reduced crop. Many growers in some
portions of Grantham and Clinton
Townships will venture to say that
the loss runs as hi^-li as I'D per cent,
and in some instances is practically
complete. The mild weather of last
December, followed by the extraord -
innry cold spell in January and February, is credited with the damage.
The season will be in great. con-
traat to last year, when many grow-'
ers found it a difficult problem to
dispose of the yield.

New Zealand Cannot
Cet Canadian Timber
In a report received at the department of trade and commerce from
W.A. Beddoe, Canadian trade commissioner for New Zealand, thc statement is made that the United States
has supplied nearly the whole of the
timber imported from the rucific
Coast for the past yeur. For soma
time particular attention has been
devoted to this subject. Large 1m-
porters In New Zealand have been
placed in communication with lend -
Ing Canadian mills on the Pacific
Coast. Exporters have submitted replies to their letters and the matter
has been well threshed out.
When tenders have been invited for
cargoes eef one million to a million
and a half superficial feet, some
reason baa been advanced why the
Lumber could not be supplied, the
following arc verbatim quotations
from letters of large mill owners on
the Pacific Coast which ure given us
examples:
Some  Excuses.
"1. Ne>t sufficient time between
now and the date .vhen tenders must
be in t,) enable us to get suitable
tonnage.
"2.   Lumber  has been  produced  in
j the  States very  much  in  excess     of
| their domestic demands,  forcing   thc
mills to look for an export murket.
'3. 'there is no timber available
at  Vancouver.
"I.    We  cable    our     Frisco agents
nnd asked them to offer us half million  feet of Oregon to load at Vun - i
couver and we bad a  reply buck  'not I
obtainable  here.'   "
Many    other    examples    could    be i
given,  taken  from letters received by ;
) the New Zealand importers.
Mr. Beddoe goes on to say that in i
cases were quotations have been Be- ;
cured, the Canadian prices have in-
variably been higher than the Amer- |
ican and the business has been lost. ;
Reciprocal Trade
The largest importer of timber in
New Zealand states thnt he is buying
shingles from Canada and paying
more money for them than if he purchased Redwood from California.
This gentleman has an exhibit at the
Auckland Exhibition, of Cnnudinn
timbers, and prominently displayed
is a notice.
'This timber from Canada is paid
for by New Zealand butter.'
This is intended to stimulate a demand for Canadian timber, by thc
suggestion of reciprocal trade. Tho
transportation (question being Rettlcd
the only obstacle appears to be the
price. If the Canadian can sell as
cheap as the American he can secure
the business.

Flour varies from time to

is because wheat continually
