the tax payer of every grade will be
given the opportunity on equal foot-
lug of taking au interest in the company and in the lands which have
been located for the henelit of the
company when formed. This is uot
and will not be a stock jobbing pro-
posltlon in any sense of the word but
is being undertaken by the citizens in
order to make living conditions here
more i omfort ihle and less costly us
the saving in fuel expense alone will
effect a saving of man'' thousands ol
dollars per annum to tbe citizens and
the gas if found in commercial quantities will attract to this vicinity
many manufactories and thus increase
our population and business activities. The committee have taken steps
already to incorporate a company to
lie known as the Revelstoke Arrow

and this will he completed In a few
daya when every citizeti will have an
opportunity Of applying for such amount of stock as he u ay [eel able to

any one.

tween the    company and tbe council
(approved by a vote of the ra*"";

meet tbe m alters oi tb' council and
discuss the basis of an agieement to
be entered Into in the event of gus in

tbe in ntion of the company to pto-

and push the deveh pir.'-nt as fast as
it can be done.
Mayor McKinnou said that the
Company was formed for the benefit
of thc city at largo. He thougnt that
it ought to have preference over a
private company. There was to he
no promotion stock. Aid. Bell advocated that the local company be giv
i'ii thc preference. Aid. Needham also desired to give the 1 ical company preference, all things being

advocated another site more accept -

Mr. Drayton in giving the decision
of the board said that the rivalries
of towns and real estate had nothing
to do with the matter. The question
was the public interest which it was
the duty oflthe railway to serve. The
point to be decided was where were
the people and where was the proper
I oint for a station from an operat -
ing standpoint. Whatever the future
might bring A,thalmer was now thc
largest place, and bad more people
rnd more business than Invermere. It
represented the largest slice of the
public convenience tbat it was the
duty of the railway to serve. He
thought the station location as at
present selected I by tbe railway would
sirve the people of Invermere conveniently. He therefor ordered that
the station be placed on Laurier uv-
So far aa Wilmer was concerned another Interest hud to be served. The
mines must get railway service as
they could not operate otherwise. Tbo
railway must cuter to business of
that kind. They were chiefly interested in carload lots and a loading
place was required. He thought that
a bridge was probable in the future
and proper spur accommodation must
be given. He asked Mr. Bruce to
consider where ore could best be loaded and to inform the board.
The arrangement between the Mar
tin Prairie Farmers' institute of 1'rit-

Take Legal Advice

Thi-    Question    of    closing the road   g
At one of the most, representative
meetings ever held In Revelstoke, it

steps that may be considered advisable.      Mr.  McCarter   explained   that

the directors of     the company until
the tirst meeting of the company.
Mayor McKinnon, who was voted tie
the chair, asked if anyone bad any
plan to propound.
Mr. McCarter said that he had no
I'laa to propose but that he might
explain that l'i to 16 miles of oil and
gas rights had been Staked and san:
pies of the gas bad been collected and
sent to the Kelso laboratories ;:
t algary for analysis. He supposed
thut everyone had read the result of
the analysis which had beer, published
in thc Mall-Herald. The sample was
an excellent one. Tbe gas waa very
similar to the natural gas e.f Medi -
cine Hat. It was composed of '.'"
per cent methane and was ..lmost
identical with tbat of ttie gri ll gas
fields of the l'nited States. Tli- sample was setter than thut of the best

From the Donald Truth ol Saturday, October 'JO, 1888, a newspaper
published hy the Into John Houston,
Is thc following article which refers
to Toad mountain mining developments and railway construction rum-
i.rs and which declares that Nelson
was named after a lieutenant-governor of this province!
"On the last trip up to Hcvelstoke
several well known mine owners from
the steamboat. Disptach had aboard
Toad mountain. One of tbe Hall boys
nnd John McDonald were among thc
number. They report having received
returns from a trial shipment ot J2i
tons nt ore sent to Anaconda, Mont.,
for reduction. The shipment netted
them nn oven 8"i000, after paying
transportation and smelting charges
that aggregated $80 a ton. Thc oro
carried 8308 in silver and 82,40 in gold
to the ton, besides going 2-s per cent
in nipper. The pay streak from
which this ore was taken is about
two teet in width, although the ledge
is 30 feet, wide in places.
These gentlemen were in tow of a
prominent Canadian Pacilic railway
employe, which gave rise to the rumor that the great Hall properties had
been bonded to a syndicate of capitalistic Canadian Pacilic officials. No
definite information could he obtained further than tbat arrangements
were being perfected to keep men at
work on the claims all winter. One
hundred men arc in that camp at
A report current in Donald is that
the Canadian Pacific railway has purchased the Ainswortb charter, and
will at once commence the construction of a railway to connect thc navigable waters of Kootenay lake with
those af the Columbia river—a distance of about 311 milcB, ulso^tbnt it
will put on two steamers on thc Columbia to ply between the western
terminus of the new roud and Revelstoke.
Owing to tbe fact that a hamlet
in another part of the province is
named Salisbury, tbe name of the
Toad Mountain Salisbury has been
changed. It is to bc culled Nelson
hereafter, in honor of the present
lieutenant-governor of the province.
A sale of lots will take place there
on the •J.'ith, thc upset price being
placed at 1*75 for inside and sUK) for
corner lots. Owing to the lateness of
the season anil tbe short notice given hut. few bidders will be present.

j that the Lister men should have been
checked in the beginning. Augustine
Uirrel, chief secretary for Ireland,
said that the Nationalists are increasing by li.unii weekly, and their
purpose was purely defensive. Thm record of 200 yeurs, he declined, showed
the futility of British stute prosecutions to suppress public opinion in

St. Leon is Watching
for Big Black Bear
At the hotel in connection with St. I
Leon Hot Springs, the proprietor und
employees  are     daily    scanning    the
j mountain side to look for a big Muck
j bear,  says the Oolden  Star.      If  the
ldg  monster  with her  inevitable  cub
leturim us hoped for, it will form one
of the most remarkable of true "bear !
stories"     on     record.     The story is
vouched for     by the (Provincial gume '
warden, having been reported by   the ,
district     warden in his departmental I
report,   The game warden quoted the
incident to allay the wild fears       of
some folk about the dangerous chur-
acter of the black bear.   ThiB purtic- ,
ular black bear hud been sighted lust j
June by some of the guests at the St.
Leon hotel.    She was then feeding up
the mountain side with her cub   and
had alarmed some of the guests. The
1 otel proprietor,  who, haa views     of
1 is own about animals and  who will
lot  allow      any   wild  animals   to   be
killed about his premises,     went out
armed with  some berries     and  meat
i'iid  other  choice  morsels  for   Bruin, i
t.nd  scattered  the food  in  the  clear- j
ing where the bear hud been seen. After a  few  duys he had     established
sucb good    relations    with the bear
tl ut he hud decoyed it down to   the j
hotel grounds, where it hecumc     one
of thc star  attractions of the place. '
Pcfore the winter came the bear   had
become so tutne that  it would  come
up to tlie      dining room     window at '
meal times and    eat the food    which
the guests placed on thc window sill.
The limit was reached when it allow-  i
ed the proprietor to feed it out of u '
plate, while at the sunie time a little
girl    lea *the cub u lew feet    away,
late in the fall the big she bear nnd
her cub heard the cull of thc wild und
departed.   This week or next iH     the
time when  the  bear  with a  new   cub
is expected  back, unless, as is  feared
is  possible,  she  bus in  the  meantime

At n   well  attended    meeting  of  thc
contract holders of the Canadian
Home Investment company in Vancouver, it wus decided to ask the attorney general to take criminal action against the directors of the company. This was the outcome of a dis-
i-iissinii on the recent report of tbe
auditors appointed to Investigate C,
11.l.i'. affairs.
The agitation fostered by Mayor W,
' H. Smith of Vernon, for lower tire
insurance   rates   for  the  city   of   Ver-
'nun, will probably result in having
Vernon rated in Hook 3, instead of in
Hook I, as.it present, which will
mean a  lowering of thc base rate for
'down   town    property   from     82.50   to
s2.2.'e per hundred, and a cut in the
base rate for residence Irom To cents
I to li.r> cents. This cut in rates will,
it is estimated, mean a saving e,f
from HI to IS per cent, in the amount annually paid out by residents
and  business men for fire insurance, a
'saving of from .$1,1100 to s.1,000.

the 1 pie of iteveistokc.   if they got

Mr. McCleneghan thought that the

formally adopted.
A discussion then followed on tbe
advisability of enpaging experts to

Regarding   the railway crossing nt

territory or by bylaw in organised
territory. The board had no power
to create a public highway. Where
land was cut by a railway thc settler
1 lit.lined compensation and was also
entitled to a crossing but where land
was bought on both sides of a track
the usual order is that thc settler
pays for a crossing when one is
Mr. McKay said thnt the company
wished to move the crossing but was
waiting for proper authority.      The
matter will be taken up witli Mr. McKay, and in the case of other crossings a report will be made by Mr.
Kerr, the commission's engineer.
The petition of Malakwa for a station agent was referred to M. J. Mc-

It was explained that the station
ships considerable quantities of eel -

may arise at nny time, with uny correspondent, nnd it is u fact that the
wit of district correspondents is
mostly of tbe cheup brand; such as it
is, it's the best we've got. If it were
of the kind which commands a dollar a word in the magazines wc
wouldn't he sending them to the Observer, because the Observer Is not
that sort. Thc Observer is very fond
of giving away top buggies, morris
chairs and thc like, but not to district correspondents. However, I'm
not blaming it; naturally the correspondent's wit is at its cheapest when
the joke happens to bc on you; it
may be u fairly good joke;, with quite
a pleasant splice of humor to it,
when it's our best friend, hut it's a
miserable cheap affair when it's on
ourselves. Hut instead of complain
ing to the paper, why don't you go
to your neighbor, who wrote the letter und see whut he hus to say? You
know him well enough; you don't tell
us that anyone living in a settlement
ran write in the local paper without
tveryhody knowing who it is. Ten
to one you will come away fully satisfied thnt he never had the remotest
intention of hurting you, that be is
immensely sorry for it if he did,  und
not ut all likely to do it again, now
thut he knows you take u joke and
you have shown him your mailed fist
My friends at Beaver lake never writie
to the Observer about me; they know
better, Sometimes when we meet
they will call me to account for some
leference to themselves wbich may
have appeared in the paper, but I
generally succeed in making them see
the purity of my intentionsl And
after that we have a drink together;
that is, we used to before the temperance move swept the country. Now
we sing a hymn together.—"H.D." in

Ten acres of land thnt have recently been taken  over     by     a party of
Scotchmen  near      Elko,  is  a perfect
I led  of granite.     They  intend  to develop  this as  soon   us  uriangements
'are perfected.      The granite is of     a
| very  fine quality and  has been  puss-
I ed on hy experts in Ottawa and Winnipeg ns the best and  purest obtainable in  Canada.   The present owners
go so far as to claim that it is even
I better than that quarried in Scotland
land that is going some.   Marble haB
also  been  found  on  the  property    of
the best quality     beautifully marked
t;nd excellent for carving purposes.—

The Indinn has frequently—and not
always unjustly—beeu accused of
criminal carelessness with tire, and to
the ancestral habit of setting out
Kres in order to improve grazing for
buflalo has even been ascribed the
muse of the pruiries, on which trees
arc once more being grown. But owing to the precept and example of
rominion firewardens tbis ingrained
carelessness has—in northern Manitoba, at least—heen supplanted by an
enthusiasm for forest conservation.
Several hundred Indians lust summer
promised to observe every precaution
to prevent forest fires, und, as the
Chief Fire Ranger writes, "The fact
of no fires this summer is proof positive that the majority of them have
faithfully kept their pledge." During the course of thc summer sixty-
three Indians voluntarily visited the
Chief's headquarters to discuss the
plans of the Forestry branch in the
iratter of conserving the remaining
foreBts in  western Canada.
Many of these Indians are sufficient-
.,.' well educated to serve as fire rangers, nnd, following its policy of obtaining the best men possible for this
work, the Dominion government has
enlisted quite a number of Indians in
thc fire ranging service, for which
their knowledge of the country and
their enthusiasm for tbe work make
them admirably adapted. Although
the forest tire loss on the 125,000
square miles of Crown timberland patrolled by Dominion fire rangers was
very small—the area of timber burnt
( ver being less than nine-one-hundrc-
ths of one per cent (O.09 per cent.)—
yct this low loss was not a little due
to the frequent showerB of rain during thc danger season. In order to
insure safety in seiasons of drought,
the Forestry branch proposes to in-
stull lookout stations which will increase the efficiency of the yet some-
v hat inadequate patrol. Already
sevcul towers huve heen established,
enabling rangers to scan at one
glance several hundred square miles of
country. Wireless telegraphy has also
been brought into use and from The
Pas und Fort Churchill it is now possible for the rnngers in these remote
regions to communicate almost in-
Btantly with the Forestry branch at
Ottawa in mutters of speciul urgency
I This is probably the first practical
; application of wireless telegraphy to
■ forest tire protection  in  America    or

gown of old gold satin, With sequin
overdress, appeared in only one solo,
"Lorraine," winning a well-deserved
encore. Mrs. Wood plenscd her audience very much in four Bongs of
which two were encores, probably her
beBt liked number being "Bird of
Love Divine." Mrs. Wood is a very
welcome addition to the roll of our
city vocalists. Another voice that
we hope to hear In solo Is the sweet
alto possessed by Miss Irene Procunier, who appeared once last evening in a duet with Miss Parker, tbe
two voices blending beautifully in
"I would tliat my Love." One of
the best ballads on the program was
Mr. Hardman's singing of an old
Scotch fa/orite, "My Mary." Mr.
Haddon always sings well, and "The
Little Gray Home in the West" was
a new song well song. Mr, Paulding
can always be depended on for splendid vocaltsm ar.d for selections well
adapted to his mellow bass voice,
"Asleep in the Deep" suits him admirably. His encore number "Rich -
i nl of Taunton Dene" in dialect,
was cleverly sung. Mr. Trebeck sang
"A Message from the King" in fine
ringing tones, and Miss Marshall was
heard in two of her popular recitations. Mrs. McVity and Miss Parker
were the accompanists of t.he even -
ing. At the close of the concert dancing began almost immediately, the
crowd being increased considerably
by many who arrived especially for
the dance. Before 12 o'clock refreshments were served by the ladies guild
of the church and were evidently appreciated ni the usual way. Orr's orchestra rendered a (ine program of
bright and "summery" music.
