The regular meeting of the City
Council was beld last night witb
Mayor Lindmark and aldermen Foote,
Stone, Sawyer and Lefeaux present.
Minutes of the laat masting were read
and adopted.
From Chief of Police reporting No
1 Fire alarms O K and No. 2 out of
order, but repaired later.—Filed.
From the Independent Band asking
for a donation from the oouncil. In
consideration of the usual open air
summer concerts to be continued, the
council resolved to donate $200 to the
band, adding a rider that the council
would ask the band to consider the
advisabilities and advantages of chang
ing their name and dropping the word
From McSorley Bros , stating that
as they bad gone to heavy expense in
purchasing an open street sign in
order to lake a vantage of the special
rates, and tbat their new sign had
been ordered stid would be here shortly, they requested tbe council to grant
them the special rate on their present
enclosed sign till the new one arrived.
The council decided to allow McSorley
B os. thirty days at the special rate on
their enclosed sign.
From the medical health officer reporting on tlie conditiou of the city
water as being absolutely pure Tbe
mayor said tbat many people had
complained to him that tbe water
bad had the effect of causing diarrhoea
and the said people thought that the
occasional milky and muddy color of
tbe water when leaving the pipes
would cause it. The report of Dr
Curtis proved tbat tbe water was ab
solutely pure.
From tbe power bouse superintendent, reporting on the excellent running of the plant during May, and
stating that tbe dynamos had run 364
hours, giving 10,439 kilowatts.—Filed.
From Tony Long, asking that the
road at 5th street to Vernon avenue
be cleared and opened, as be was
building a residence tbere. The
oouncil resolved tbat as every new
building helped tbe town it was rigbt
that such improvements should be
done, and the matter wss left with
tbe public work 1 committee.
From tbe School Board, requesting
tbat a fire alarm box be installed in
the public school. Recognizing tbat
this was a most necessary move, the
work was ordered to bo done.
From' Ci-ief of Police requesting tbat
tbe lumber for a fence round tbe goal
be provided.   Work to be carried out.
From C. Young, applying for position as cemetery caretaker for tbe
From tbe city electrician reporting
on tbe cost of wiring tbe new wing ol
the hospital.—Laid over.
Mr. Walsh, financial manager of the
London Standard was present, and
said, in addressing the council, tbat
the new Standard ol Empire was inaugurated for the purpose ol bringing
tbe whole Empire into close touch, so
tbat each part would know wbat thu
other was doing. He advised the
council tbat every city of importance
in Canada should advertise in the
Standard to its ultimate advantage.
By this great circulating medium,
every portion of the Empire would be
advertised and all information given
for tbe opening for capital. He submitted advertising rates of a fortnightly insertion of a two inch double
column space for $350 a year. -He
pointed out tbat Canada's possibilities
should be advertised and the Standard of Empire was a great medium.
Every city would be benefitted by the
publicity which would be a great help
when money for development was
required. The oouncil recognised the
value of the suggestion, but could not
see tbeir way clear to advertise at
those rates.
A delegation ol Orangemen waited
on tbe council snd requested .tbem to
erect an arch for the 12th of July
demonstration, pointing out tbat tbe
people should decorate aod take pride
in their city and let tbe visitors see
that they were welcomed. A large
crowd was expected and the city
should be made as festive as possible.
Tbe aldermen considered tbe matter
favorably. Aid. Lefeaux, however,
objected on the grounds tbst the oity
could not rightly, by erecting an arch,
officially recognise the Order, which
was purely denominational.
Tbe delegation explained that that
was not the idea, but that tbe visitor*
should see tbat tbe citizens properly
welcomed tbem and that the city was
made attractive.
The mayor appointed a committee
to take up the matter and arrange for
the erection ol an aroh.
A delegation from No. 2 Fire Brigade waited on the council and submitted plans and specifications for a
new fire alarm system, ststing thai
this system waa in vogue in all large
cities and absolutely reliable. It can
be added to from time to time and
could be installed very cheaply. In
bringing ap these specifications the
delegation stated that they had only
considered No. 2 brigade, but No. 1
oould be installed witb a similar out
tit so that the whole system oould be
put in at very reasonable cost,
The mayor pointed out tbat whatever was granted would have to be
given to both brigades alike.
The matter was laid over till the
special meeting next week.
It was arranged with the city asses
sor tbat assessment work should begin
on June 15th and end on July 13th,
and that a tax sale be beld on July
Insurance on the power house wa.
increased tocover the new buildings.
The city clerk asked wbat had been
done about tbe appointment of bis
successor, and the oouncil agreed to
decide it at the next special meeting,
Mr. Floyd stating that be wished to go
by July 31st.
In dealing with the Mt. Viotoria
trail, the mayor stated that he had
been told that snob trail could be
built for $120 a mile and would be
about -| miles long. The government
and the city would each pay half. It
was decided to oall for tenders for the
work, to be in by Wednesday night,
June 17th.
Tbe matter of the closing the C.P.R
bridge was taken up and the urgent
necessity of communication across tbe
river agreed upon.
The mayor suggested a temporary
ferry till such time as a permanent
bridg • could be put in.
The council recognised that the situation was serious andpsssed a strong
resolution requesting the government
to provide for a temporary ferry at
once, until a trafli bridge oan be erected in the fall, to give uninterrupted
communication across the river.
The accounts were passed and the
meeting adjourned.
Rev. David Russell, of South
Africa at the Y.M.C.A.
The Y. M. C. A. have been fortunate in securing the services of Rev.

Lengthy Walking Tour
On June 12th two young Englishmen John Wynne Harley, of the staff
of tbe Gentleman's Journal of Lon-
d su, Eng., aud Arthur David Htidley,
will start on a circular tour from
Toronto to Vancouver, Seattle to New
York and Halifax to Toronto, for a
To win the wager they have to—
1. Walk in three years, with a
break of not more than a month
between each section of the tour.
2. To start without any money.
3. To earn food aad expenses while
on tour
4. To sleep every night in a tent.
5. All baggage to be drawn on a
hand cart.
6. To get a book signed by tbe
mayor, town clerk, a magistrate, or
tbe postmaster of every city, town or
village they pass through.
Tbey hope to earn their expenses by
photography and illustrated articles
in English papers.
Right of Road
A case was tried at Lacombe recently which is of interest to all—a question of tbe right of tbe road. The
driver of a loaded wagon refused to
turn out for a light rig, being of tbe
opinion that loads held the roads over
empties. As a consequence tbe light
rig was smashed and the owner laid a
complaint. The result was thst tbe
owner of tbe load wss fined and ordered
to pay the cost of repairing the damage to the light rig. It is well to
know that all vehicles have equal
rights on the road, whether loaded or
empty, and while the average driver
will turn out for a load he is not oom-
pelled by law to do so.
Immigration Decreasing.
Ottawa, June 12. — Immigration
into Canada in April totalled only
29,755 a* against 44,051 in the same
month last year, a decrease of thirty-
two per cent. The immigration via
ocean ports has decreased forty-six per
cent Ior tbe lirst four months of the
calendar year, while that from the
United States ban increased by CI.2
per cent.
Fatal Explosion.
Winnii'lu, June 13.—By a premature explosion ol dynamite at Chamber Bros', camp, esst of Winnipeg
river, yesterday afternoon, nine members of a station gang working on tbs
Transcontinental railway construction
wero killed and several injured. Tbe
ooroner bas gone out from Kenora to
investigate. Tho Had feature of the
accident is that the wives of the two
Englishmen killed are on tbe ocean
en route to join their husbands.
A Possibility of $100,000 to
be Spent by Provincial Government on Wagon Road
from Revelstoke to G. T. P.
There is every possibility that one
hundred thousand dollars, most of
which will be expended by the Provincial government, will be spent oo
tho building of a wagon road Irom
Revelstoke to allow supplies to be
takeu in from tbis point to the construction camps on the Qrand Trunk
Pacific west of tbe Yollowhead Pass.
Our delegation, consisting of Messrs
McCarter, McRae, T. Taylor, M.P.P.,
C. B. Hume and W. M. Lawrence
returned to the city this morning
from interviewing tbe government
with respect to widening of existing
and the building of new roads to
divert the route of Grand Trunk
Pacific supplies from the route via
Mr. McCarter stated that the government, after listening attentively to
tbe suggestions of the deputation, took
up tbe matter with considerable enthusiasm and signified their realization of the importance of the suggestions made. A definite answer, however
could not he given but strong support
was offered with a promise to forward
from the government a definite reply
to Revelstoke next Tuesday.
The delegation was oneol the largest
that has waited on the government for
Borne time.

Further News of Conditions in
the New Placer District.
The Aldermore, Bulkley Valley,
Pioneer says: Frank Watson with his
partner, Mr. Bodioe, arrived in town
tbis week from the Ingenika placer
district. When seen by our reporter
he bad this to say: "The discovery of
placer gold on the bead waters of the
Ingenika, a tributaro of the Findlay
River, is undoubtedly a fact beyond
dispute. I myself took twenty pans
from Perry's claim which yielded a
dollar and ten cents, which would
mean from twenty-five to thirty dollars
a day to tbe man shovelling in a sluice
box. At tbe present time tbere are
about forty men tbere Fifteen cabins
have gone up, lumber haa been whip-
Bswed and some sinking has gone on
during the winter. The deepest shaft,
when I left the diggings, was down
about 30 feet with no bedruck, and I
understand another shall has reached
a depth of 52 feet since I left, with the
bottom in cement gravel. Tbe width
of the channel and slope of the rim-
rock would not iudicate any such
depth as that to bedrock. I should
say that 20 feet of -sinking would reach
bedrock on the average. The crrek
has a g oil run,although it gets slighi-
ly flatter as you go up sticitni. All
the available ground from the canyon
to the headwater, a distance of five
miles is staked. But it is a big country with lots of room for further prospecting. Some of tbo boys are getting
a little short of grub. There are lots
of cariboo in tbe country so they won't
Chemical Engine Test Proves
Hamilton, Ont., June 12.—One of
tbe worst accidents in the history of
the town occurred bere at an early
bour this morning, when Lome Baker
lost bis life aad Arthur Heisterman,
with several others, narrowly escaped
serious injury. An old building
whioh had been placed on tbe commons st the west end of the town for
the purpose of testing the now chemical engine, was set on fire. I n some
unknown way the fire alarm was soon
given and the |lire brigade was soon
en route. The team drawing the
engine and firemen was coming up
Main Street at top speed when one of
the gas cylinders exploded. Baker,
the engineer, was standing on the
rear stepboard operating the cylinder
and was blown many yards away
killing bim instantly. Heisterman
bad two fingers blown off, his arm
broken and bancs badly cut.

There i_ e_ much bad in the best of 03,
And .o much good io the worst ol as,
That it hardly behooves any of us,
To talk aboul the rest of us.
Tbe ultitr .turn issued hy the C.
P. R. concerning  the   use   ol   the
Columbia   bridge   for   pedestrian
traihe, bas brought  the  matter of
trios-river   communication    to   a
detinue head and henceforth a pen-
ait) wi., tn: imposed   on   all   wb>
Ure   he br.d^e   lor   that    purpose
Tbis   means   that   the    resident-
acios-s-   liie   riitr   are   completely
iroia'.eu fruiu lhe eily and   have DO
means whatever  ol   getting   backwards or forwards, anu thai  something decisive will bave to be done
to secure those,  who sre  building
up homes, cultivating   lauds   and
incidentally developing the country,
facilities of disposing of their  produce aod in generally   keeping   in
touch with the   msin   city.     The
C. P.  R.   cannot   be   blamed   lot
taking this action, for   were   the]
lo encourage the use of their hridg<
for pedestrian traffic, which struc
ture is   built   solely   lor   railroai
traffic, the result   would   lie   that
sooner or later the company wouh
have to   put   up   with   numerou
accidents    and     probably     ileatl
claims.     We believe that, il the (
P, R. bad Wn   approached in tie
lirst instance, in tho early Htaget. o'
planning  their   bridge,   some   ai
rangement might have been arrive'
at whereby one bridge could   hav
supplied train ns well as vehicula
traffic.    When it was too late, hovt
ever, the   railroad   company   wo
approached, but   could   or   wouh!
not alter their plans.
The time has come when  Revel
stoke must expand   and   enlarge;
rich as she is, she will be richer
still and these acres and acres of
fine fruitful land across the river
will now in all probability be allowed to lie idle for want of an
outlet for their produce. The
growth of Revelstoke is being curtailed, which fact to be believed
must be seen. As the matter stands
now, the bridge is dangerous for
pedestrian traffic, and the C. P. R.
have ordered every trespasser off.
The Board of Trade, the City
Council and citizens as a whole
have again and again made repeated petition to the government
urging upon them the necossity of
constructing a trffic bridge across
the river, and the government has
as many times quietly ignored
their request, and nothing haa been
done. Revelstoke can in justice
demand this concession from the
government, and though we have
bad many promisee, that is all that
has been accomplished and we are
now no better off. The value and
importance of this riding is recognized, but we do not consider that
we bave received back a juet proportion in public works as compared to tbe money turned into
the treasury. Tbis is a matter
which vitally affects the growth of
our city and industries, and one
which deserves immediate attention. We cannot be too serious in
taking up this question and we
only ask for our just rights in demanding communication with a
section of the city which is but yet
in its infancy.
Revelstoke is now doing what
she ought to have done years ago
and hut- at lust risen to the occasion and realized that to altain any
object she must not sit buck p.m!
wait for it to come along. If we are
to take up any particular question
lor our own interests we should g >
about it in a manner calculated t.i
produce some tangible result!-.
Publicity and self advertising ar"
twu chief mediums whereby th''
outside world bas knowledge ol
vhat is going on and if we wi?h t'i
■ucceed and put our city where ibe
transcontinental road entails enormous material and supplies which
must needs be purchased in the
province and in Revelstoke and
Vancouver indirectly. The trade
will materially benefit the merchants of both cities besides putting more money into circulation.
Our delegation to the coast has so
far met with enthusiastic and
promising success, and they have
clearly and concisely laid their
proposition before the government
pointing out the necessity of assuring the contractors of assistance
and facilities for transportation of
supplies from this point up the
Columbia and Canoe Rivers. This
is the right way to go about all
matters of a like nature where a
benefit individually or provincially
is concerned, and only by tactful
persistence and aggressive determination can we hope to succeed.
Publicity and close attention to
matters of importance and their
prompt execution will invariably
lead to ultimate success. Our citizens must stand behind their representatives and give them aid
whenever called upon. Questions
of vital importance to Revelstoke
will come and go and it is the duty
of every member of the community
to be ready to push or pull together as every occasion demands.
The following from the  Victoria
Colonist will be interesting to   certain of our citizens:
"The city  council  of Columbia,
Missouri, has imposed a tax of $50
a vear on   every   unmarried   man
resident in that citv.  The age limit
is from thirty to fifty, the inference
lieing that a young fellow ought to
have   until   he   is   thirty  to look
around, and that when a  bachelor attend
passes  fifty  no woman is likely to I
want  lo marry him.    Prof. W. B.I"
Elkins,   of   the  state    university
thinks   th'
'ought to be, although it will apply
■ to himself and   one   hundred   and
nineteen other members ot the fac-
i ulty.   Ho says:
'It is one of mv ideas of future
i ci vi 1 government, the regulation ol
i marriage.   Truly, no man  in good
him, to be assured by Dr. Elkins
that in fifty years from now every
man will by the time he is twenty-
one have discovered his affinity.
The doctor is inclined not to trust
too much to the affinity business,
for he proposes to have a commission appointed to report on all
people at the age of twenty-one and
condemn to single blessedness those
that are unfit to marry.
"While it is admitted that several of the aldermen of Columbia
have pretty, marriageable daughters, it is denied emphatically that
the city council has been actuated
by any other object than to replenish the city finances."

Agricultural  Association    Intends to Better Past Efforts
The exhibition which will be beld
on September 23, 24 and 25 at Alexandra park, Kamloops, will, if the
intentions of the man iging board are
carried out successfully, far surpass
that of any previous year in tho life
of tbe association. Mayor Robinson,
who is president for the year has
always been an enthusiastic worker
for tbe association, and during his
fenure of office as secretary-manager
were beld tbe best shows heretofore.
Witb the experience he gained during
those two years and witb an energetic
board at his back. Mr. Robinson will
be able to materially assist tbe work
of tbe Beo.etary-msnager. It is tbe
intention of the board to make tbe
exhibition of produce and fruit thoroughly representative of tbe district
and indicative of its potentialities.
Tbe live stock men will be encouraged
to prepare good exhibits for the (sir
and the prize list will be revised with
this object in view. The matter of
attractions will be looked after by an
energetic committee, who will see to
it that this branch of the exhibition
will be such as will bring people from
outside points. The racing committee
will be appointed witb a view to securing men who will have the best
interests of tbe "siiort of kings" at
heart and a programme will be arranged which will attract an unusual
large number of the best horses in the
west. Lovers of tbe racing game can
rest assured that the two days' meet
will furnish the best of sport for the
two participants and spectators. The
track, already one of the best appointed in the west, will be considerably
improved and fast going will be assured. Altogether Kamloops and the
district will have reason to congratulate themselves when the exhibition of
1908 is closed.

A happy thought when you are
traipsing around tbe fair grounds—
Calgary is but one city of dozens
building up a wonderful countiy in
tbe weat. One will learn more, perhaps, in July, ol Alberta than any
other Provinoe, more of Cslgsry than
any other Province, more of Calgary
than any other city. An elasticity ol
conscience allows human beings to
say everything good of themselves.
Others may do likewise. Let your
imagination slip away lor a little trip
across Alberta. You cannot forget
the City ol Silver Spoons anyway. It
is helping to make things.

Woman Assaulted and Throat
Cut—Assassin at Large
New Webtminbteii, Juno 12 —Outraged, murdered and thrown into a
ditch was the horrible fate of Mrs.
Morrison, wife of a tanner living a
short distance out of Haxelmere yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Morrison
had occasion to visit H .nolmere for
the purpose of shopping, and was on
her way home, accompanied by her
little  daughter   Mary,   aged 8 years.
As far as can be ascertained from
the child they were overtaken by a
man who, without a word, rushed at
the mother aud threw her to the
ground. Tbe child, terrified for its
life, ran screaming from the place and
making for the first houss that came
in view, that of D. Brown. The inmates who rushed out, found Mrs.
Morrison lying in a ditch at the side
of the road, about a mile south of
Hazelmere, in a dying condition. Her
throat was cut, the juirular being
severed, and her face was severely
slashed. Her clothes were scattered
around, having been torn off in the
struggle which had evidently tsken
place. She was alive, but unable to
epeak. A large clasp-knife, such as is
carried by Bailors, was found|1ying
near, lt had evidently been used by
the assas'in. There were no marks
on it likely to lead to identification
Chief Constable Spain and Const.
Wilkie, assisted by a posse of forty
constables and volunteers, joined in
the chase for the murderer. Residents
turned out armed with rifles, and the
search waB kept up all last night, but
without result. If the man had been
oaugbt it is feared he would have been
lynched, so high is the feeling in the
Mrs. Morrison, with her husband,
came to this country from Scotland 15
years ago. The pair had been in possession of their farm at Hazelmere for
the paBt 13 years, and their industry
and respectability won the esteem of
their neighbors. With the husband
there six young children left to mourn
tbe deceased.
Although many arrests have been
made the provincial police feel that
the assaBsin who foully murdered Mrs.
Morrison, is still at large. With a
cordon, the diameter of which readies
Irom Blaine on the south to New
Westminster on the north the officials
are confident that his capture is but a
matter ot hours.

The Supposed  Origin of  the
The origin of the word "Canada'' is
curious enough. The Spaniards visited
this country previous to the French,
and made particular search for gold
and silver, and finding none they often
said among themselveB "aca nada"—
there is nothing bere. Tbe Indians
who watched closely, learned this sentence and its meaning. The French
arrived, and tbe Indians, wbo wanted
none of their company, and supposed
they were also Spaniards come odt
on the Bame errand, were anxious
to inform them in the Spanish sentence "aca nada." The French, who
knew as little of the Spanish language as the Indians, supposed this
incessantly recurring sound was the
name ot the country and gave it the
name of Canada, which it has borne
ever since, Canada was discovered by
John and Sebastian Cabot in  1497.

Nelson, June 12.—An important
development is taking place with
regard to the Queen Victoria mine,
situated on Kootenay river, about
nine miles west of Nelson. This is a
property with one of the largest showings in the country of low-grade
copper ore. During tho past month
eastern and English capitalists have
been making a very careful sampling
of Ihe mine aud bave shipped to the
Northport smelter one hundred tons
of ore. On the result of tbis reduction
will depend the future of this prop-
ertp. Tbere is sufficient ore in, if it ie
pay, to justify tbe erection of a reduction works at the foot of the hill
elose by the railway. Thus by reducing its own ore in similar manner as
have done the Boundary mines, tbere
is a chance of a steady profit if worked
on a sufficiently large scale.
