Beautiful Services Held by all
Eastur Day dawned dull and cloudy
on Bunday last with an uncomfortable
wind blowing. In spite ol the adverse
elements the church going public
turned out en masse, the ladies with
the latest creations in bead gear, the
men in the very newest cuts from
tbeir tailors. Easter is the greatest oi
the Christian festivals and on Sunday
in thousands ul churches and in many
languages was the story told of the
R- surrection of Jesus. Special choral
and musical services were held in the
local churches which were decorated
with Iresh and beautiful flowers, symbols of renewed life.
A large number of communicants
attended the earlyjcoiuniunion service,
the chinch being prettily decorated
with greenery, flowers and (lowering
plants. The choral celebration at 11
a.m. was a beautiful and impressive
service being well attended, the choir
rendering special Easter music, anthems, eto. The evening service was
also attended by a large congregation
and fine music rendered. The Rev. C.
A. Procunier preached at both services,
taking as bis subjects the signilication
of Easter and the Christian faith as
based on the resurrection of Christ.
Easter Sunday waB one of the greatest day* in the Methodist Church.
The lirst service at 10 a.m. was one of
real fellowship. Tbe public service at
11 o'clock wsb one to be remembered.
Tbe congregation was splendid, practically a full house. We have never
heard the junior cboir do as well in
the service of praise. Two special
Easter autbems were rendered, both
of which delighted the hearts uf the
isteuers. At the close of the public
service the paetoi introduced to tie
church 21 peisunB who entered into
lull membership with the church, aev-
eral of them frum the Sunday School.
A large congregation assembled in tie
evening. The adult choir sang in a
most inspiring manner. Two anthems
one quartette, and one solo were given
as special numbers. Special mention
might be made of the lirst anthem,
"Unfold ye Portals." The congregational singing was very hearty. "The
death, burial and resurrection of
Christ," was the pastor's theme in the
morning, and "Our Lord's first appearance to tbe collective body ol the disciples on the first! evening after HiB
Resurrection," his theme in the evening. Altogether a grand and j.iyuue
day was spent.
Tbe Easter services on Sunday were
largely attended, the pastor, Kev..). ll.
Robertson, preaching both inuining
and evening. The evening service
was principally one of praise, the
anthems by the choir, "Hark the
Celestial Sound," and "Christ the
Lord is Risen," beiug particularly
well rendered. The Easter lillits
and other plants which graced the
pulpit presented a pleasing appearance
and were greatly admired.
Hundreds of People Brave Elements in Front of Land Office
Edmonton, Alta., April 13.—When
the Dominion land otlice opened here
at nine o'clock this murning to receive
entries for 40-1 homesteads there were
nearly 500 peuple in line. Some of
these man had been waiting thus
lor two days.
Both preceding nights were bitterly
cold, and a number of those in line
wore without overcoats and shivered
iu thu chilly breeze. A rain storm
yesterday afternoon made matters
worse lur them, and a number dropped
out, A lew had eoiue unprepared fur
the lung wait, and were without food,
but several times yesterday citizens
passed hot coll'ec alung the lice,
Tbe first man in the lino was a (ia-
lioiau who could not speak a word ul
English, and il ho is wise enough to
make a good sclectiun wil) get 100
acres ul land worth from 120 to filfi
per acre Ior his $10 entry fee and residence duties.
Behind him were three hall-breeds,
but the majority in line were Americans, a number ol whom will get valuable (arms (or virtually nothing.
These homesteads arc nuw forty-two
miles from Ihe nearest railroad, hut
before the end of the year thero will
be a line through lhe tract of land.

Cricket Club Whist Party
The lady patruns o( the Revelstoke
Cricket Club held a progressive whist
party on Monday night in the City
Hall. Other attractions the same
evening prevented a very large attendance Seven tables were occupied with
card players till eleven o'clock, the
winners being Mrs. D M. Rue, and T.
Hook, the consolation prizes going tn
Mrs C. A. Procunier and Mr. Broadbent. A feature of tbe evening was a
novel guessing competition arranged
hy W. li. Humphreys, the prizes being
secured by Mrs. D. M. Rao and 0. W.
Gordon. Refreshments brought a
very pleasant evening tu a close.
B. of L. E. and B. of L. F. & E.
Entertain 800 Guests
Once again the great excursion run
uuder the auspices of the B. of I, E.
and B. of L. F. aud E. at the opera
house and the second annual "at,
home" has pasBedinto history. Without exception the dance laBt night was
the so?ial event of the Beason and the
greatest undertaking in the entertainment line that has yet been held here.
Passenger trallic was very heavy
round the opera house depot last uight
and extra crewB and switchmen wero
busy piloting the throngs of invited
guests that surged intu the hall. The
room was handsomely decorated with
many colored lights, streamers and
Hags, the loco trophy on the stage
being a feature. The attendance was
a record one, nearly 80J Bitting down
to supper. The committed handled
the affair admirably. The "headlight"
waltz was extremely popular. Space
will not permit of an elaborate account
of thiB great dance but we are safe in
saying that there are no more popular
hosts in Revelstoke than the mem hers
of the B. of L E., and B. ol L. F. & E.
"Here's to tbe man at the throttle and
the man behind the furnace door."
Music was furnished by the Independent Band.
A pleasing feature of the evening
was the presentation by F. R. Mitchell on behalt of the Brotherhoods to
W. W, Foster ot a Masonic ring and a
handsome jewelled scarf pin as a testa-
muny of the high esteem felt fnr him
by bis railruad friends.

Peter's church took plact- on F.as'er
Monday evening. The customary
orders of business were followed.
The Rev. C. A. Procunier, M.A.,
rector, submitted his 10th annual
report. In brief, the report touched
upon the vacant pew and place of one
of the faithful, gone to everlasting
peace and reward; well may ive say,
"grant them Lord eternal rest, and
may perpetual light shine upon them."
Baptisms and ennfirmations are waxing, nut waning, am) there is an air of
increased interest in the work of the
church, spiritually, "good Samaritans
and men striving after I lith, hope and
sincerity " Among uther items dis-
cu ssd were tbe building fund fur a
uew church, esst city mission church
wiib curate, the strengthening ol the
present church fabric and increased

No. 2 Brigade Receive  Early
Call This Morning
Dancers, wending their way hunie
about fuur o'clock this morning frum
attending the ii. ol L. E. and B, uf L.
F. and E. "at liuinu," in the Opera
House, were startled to see a lurid
glare in the northern sky and lung
tongues ul Maine shunting up frum a
building adjoining Mrs. Turnross'
hnuse nnrtli ul the truck. An alarm
of lire wns immediately turned in to
No. 2 Fire Hall, to which the brigade
promptly responded. Fire had broken
out in the hnuse, thu property of Mrs.
Oarr, near Mrs. Turnross'   house,   and
had    gained  considerable    heud way
when the brigade arrived. Nu time
was lust, however, in getting water un
the burning building, in spite uf the
fact that the nearest hydrant was un
First street and consequently a great
length uf llOBO was necessary to get
water on the llames. The lire was
quiokly got under cnutrul, but the
building, which was light ami uf
llimtty material, was practically gutted.

resolved, in the prime of life, to
duplicate their earlier experiences

But Ihis is not the only type of

perhaps the one to whom the glad

His Excellency the governor-
general has at last exposed himself,
thoughtlessly, let us hope, as a
target fur the marksmanship of the
ecclesiastical air gun. Karl Grey,
as is known, is enjoying his holidays and last week in Toronto, in
company with Sir Mortimer Clark,
he looked in at the Woodbine race
meet. \\'-oo-h! What unigh
have ended in nothing more than
an afternoon socially and otherwise
pleasantly spent by the Earl without anyone knowing very much
about it becomes a National scandal on tlie part of the unco' guid—
those who are always putting fortli
their hands to catch the falling
Ark of God to save it, for immediately a member of the Presbytery
of.Toronto, the)) in session, notified
the Moderator of the governor's
fall from grace, and a formal resolution was prepared tu bring tlie
subject under debate. The debate
war heated and the motion laid
over for tho ecclesiastical gorge to

British    Columbia's    Methods
Meet With Approval
As an Indication ol the rapid
advance of tbe fruit-growing industry
j u! British Columbia it is interesting
to note that at   the   provincial   fumi
| gating station there are at present no
fewer than eix carloads of nursery
8tuck,"sume from tbe United States,
some from Ontario and some from
France Belgium and Holland, says tbe
Vancouver Province. British Columbia is now importing from all parts of
the civilized world and very Btringent
precautions are taken by the provincial fruit inspector's department.. All
these trees are inspected individually,
and Inspector Cunningham stated to
the Province that he had a start' of 12
men at. work at the provincial fumigating station. On April 3 over 4,000
trees were cremated for various diseases and recently 3,000 trees were
condemned and will be burned.
A great deal ol interest is taken in
Britiah Columbia's method of protecting her great fruit industry. Dr. E.
ti. Sanderson, writing Irom one ol the
New England states, concludes an
important letter tolnsp Cunningham
witb these words: "You are fortunate
in having such a thorough-going system for the detection of such imported
pests as the gypsy and brown tailed
moth, I wish tbat tbe people of our
American states were as wideawake in
protecting their own interests. III
can be of further service please command me."
Inspector Cunningham remarked
that the American experts evinced a
most Iriendly spirit ol co-operation
towards the methods in vogue in this

More bread and Better bead
 And the Reason for it
A STRONO FI.OT.'R can only
*a be made from strong wheat.
Manitoba bard wheat is acknowledged the strongest in the world—
and that is the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Every grain
of this wheat contains both high-
grade and low-grade properties.
In separating the high-grade parts
from the low-grade the Western
Caaada Flour Mills put the hard
wheat through a process so exacting
that not a single low-grade part
has the remotest chance of getting
in with the high-grade.
Of course this special process is
more expensive to operate but it
means a lot to Pitrity flour users—
tint's why we use it.
It means that Ptiritv Flour is
made entirely of the highest-grade
flour parts of the strongest wheat
in the world.
It means a high-class, strung flour
and therefore yields "more bread
ami better bread."
r.irity may cost a little more
than 6onie flours, but results prove
it the cheapest and most economical after all.

Organization   for   Systematic
Agitation to Secure Law
The local option movement, which
has lately been organized in tbe province of B. C, bas entered upon a
oampaign wbicb is destined to bave
lar-reaching results. During the late
session ol the Legislature there appeared belore the House the strongest
delegation tbat ever waited on tbe
Provincial Government to ask for a
provincial local option law. This
delegation was supported by petitions
of about 35,000 signatures and the
hope wss strong that the Government
would grant the request. Some disappointment is lelt by the advocates of
local option that tbe Government has
not seen fit to do thia, and virtually
answers "not now my child, Iiul something else;" what tbat else will be, let
the oracle make reply. The local
option advocates will certainly pries
for local option or something better.
As considerable attention is being
given to this question in Revelstoke
a few considerations just now may be
oppurtuoe. It iB not a mere local
movement, it is not Borne new thing
led by a few temperance fanatics, it is
not a more passing enthusiasm.
1. It  is  a  world   movement.   The
those who think that province ia be
hind in temperance reform. Out of
about 900 municipalities, smne 700 are
free from the sale ol liquor as a beverage. Ontario is still badly hatuli-
oapped by itB three fifths majority
requirement, yet out of 862 municipalities, 360 are now under local
option; a large number of licenses
were recently cut off in the city of
Toronto and each year sees a large
additional area added to the dry belt
of the great banner province. "Manitoba long ago declared for provincial
prohibition and should have heen the
first province in the Dominion to
receive it, but it became the football
of politicians and in the game the ball
never got through the goal. The
present government have recently established the simple majority vote
on the question, has amended smne
of the present laws, and a great forward movement is now being undertaken. Saskatchewan last year passed
a local option law for that province on
the basis ol a majority vote To the
great credit of both political parties
this law was supported by both sides
ol the House. Alberta has still to
work with the handicap ot the three-
filths majority, but the present laws
are being amended, and the sentiment
in favor ol local option is bo strong
that the secretary of the Provincial
Temperance snd Moral Reform Association, Rev. W. G. W. Fortune states
Member for Yale-Cariboo Discusses Oriental Question
Advices frnm Toronto indicate that
Mr. A. S, Goodeve, M.P., fur Yale-Cariboo is not only paying close attention
to the needs of the various parts ol
his constituency and that he is presenting and pressing the claims of the
various Buards oi Trade on the consideration of the government, but that
he takes 11 broader and more statesmanlike view of the problems of empire than would confine him to his
constituency. On the question of
Oriental immigration his words ring
true and clear and will meet with the
unqualified endorsement of u large
majority of his constituents.
Addressing a meeting of the Suuth
Toronto Young Conservative Club in
their new rooms lest week on the
Oriental question Mr. Goodeve delivered himself, among uther guud things
of the following stirring sentences:
"The Asiatic question is not one for
Uritish Columbia alone. It is for
Canada and tor the British Empire.
"We have the right tu say who shall,
and win, shall nut, come in and posBess
our In nils.
" Nu ciiizi.'ii nf .Inpiin leaves the em
pire without receiving permission, and
without signing bonds thut, in chso ol
trouble, he will reluru to   fight fur the
"The life uf the Japanese is hucIi
that he can never nssimilut with the
''It iB not that thej are two low to
associate with us. It iH almost exactly the oppjsite.
"They arc our friends ted ty, but
they are ambitious. I am not an
alarmist, but il trouble comes will
tliese Japanese light under the British
flag? Nu, they will return to light fur
the Mikado."
"Are you going tu hand over the
country fur which uur forefathers have
fought to these people? Or are yuu
g ling tn keep ii Inr ihe grand old Hag,
the best, gem in the British Empire?"
The serious side of the question, Mr.
Goodeve explained, is that by years of
training the Asiatic is able to live so
cheaply, and yet accomplish his wurk,
that the Canadian cannot compete
with him. In Japan skil ed workmen
are receiving only (ruin ten to fourteen
cents a day, und by these men coming
into the Province ul [Stilish Columbia
an economic disturbance is being produced,
"We are uot narrow," continued Mr.
Goodeve. "The country is open to all
who are willing to come out and assimilate wilh Ciimidiiius and live under
the uld llag, but when people come
out who Bay they will never become
Canadians then 1 sny it is time that
ive cume to a stop. We have a right
tu say whu shall and whu shall not
come out and pusses* uur lands.
"The abore fishing industry is one
of ihe gie.iiest in Uritish Columbia,
and now ibis industry it- almost entirely in the hands ol the JapaTieee,

Tonight at the Opera House in "The House of Bondage"
greatest reform movement in tbe world
to-day is that of world wide temperance reform. In Russia the deplorable
state of the peasantry bas led the
Government to appoint a commission
to investigate and correct the terrible
evils ol vodka drinkinj.
2. It is a I), ininion aod Provincial
movement in Canada. Tbe movement
is an urgent one in all the provinces
ol Canada. Prince Edward Island is
the first and only province in tbe
Dominion that has reached tbe goal ol
prohibition. In this regard the greatest

3, The movement in British Columbia, tbis greatest province in Canada,
bas no local option law. We havo a
licensing law with Borne 700 liccnsm
in the province. About 375 of these
are in sell-governing municipaliths
wbere they are administered under
license cominiBBioners and 325 in the
unorganized municipalities administered by the Government through tho
Attorney-General. To the oredit ol
the Gove-nmcnt, there aro a number
of municipalities iu tho Okunu.an
valley, Princo Rupert, etc., where
licences have not been granted uml
where the communities aro thereby
greatly benefitted. But tho penple ot
this province are feeling very strongly
that tbey ought to have a voice in this
matter. Nearly 18 years ago the
Plebiscite in I). C. declared in favor of
prohibition. It is surely an abnormal
thing that this principle of democracy
Bhould be denied the people of the
province. Hence tbe present campaign. I.et all citizens .nfurm themselves fully, lot all advocates bo wise
