an otllciul letter from the Department
of the Interior at Ottawa addressed to
the Dominion Lands Sub-Agency at
Revelstoke, intimating that the gov -
ernment have been pleased to approve
of the n iming of thc area of land

EARLY EFFORTS.
Investigation disclosed an application hid some years' before been actually  submitted  to the  Dominion  gov ■
but also of the idea of the National
lark, and speaking on same as being
a matter coming within his knowledge
as Dominion representative of the assembled crowds of celebrators, he made
a  definite  promise   that  following  his
einment, askin;  that  the  lands     now   return to Ottawa, he would spare   no
proposed as a  park,  or  a  considerable   rains  to bring the project to a success
fui issue, and at the tame time urged
the Progressives to concnuei their efforts to Interest the C.P.Ry. and others in their plans for making Revel-
itoke a great park centre and tourist
playground.
DEPUTATION TO OTTAWA.
The following months saw work actively prosecuted on the Mouuta n
Road, several- miles 0f which were
pushed to completion before the end
of the 1912 season, anl in the spring
ol 1913, after various influential gentlemen of the C.P.R., publicists and do
scriptlve writers and others, had been
tiloted ,to the proposed park and endorsed thc descriptions of its suitability and natural beauty; previously giv
in by visitors and residents, it was
deemed advisable to fo us all tlii*
extra information, and send same to
the Capital as additional argument ii
support of the National Park Reserve
lieing granted.
Accordingly, armed  with much doc-
eumentary evidence, Messrs. R. Gibbons and H.J. McSorley, two [irom -
inent members of the Revelstoke Conservative Association left for Ottawa.
These e^entlemcn spent two weeks in
the East, and returned with „ practical assurance from Mr. Green, that the
w ishes of his constituents in regard to
the nirk were on the point of being,
grunted.
I  SUCCESS CROWNS EFFORTS
Now within four months of that vis
it, comes the official announcement,
setting     the area apart ior the pur-
■ roses desired, and in complete accord
'with the most optimistic wishes of the
1 rogcess Club and citizens of Revel -
stoke.
| This splendid nihievement is big
with promise for the future progress
end properity of our district. In conjunction with the rei-ently advertised
settlements of the Railway Belt lands,
it opens up pro.-'pects of great benefit
to the entire community. Within a
few months, we have laid for us,
thanks  to th.' capabilities  and eflorts
' of our provincial and Dominion representatives, the foundations of a great
agricultural industry as is bound to
accrue following* the settlement of our
lands; whilst this present decision ot
the government to provide us with
a great National Park, opens up the
illimitable possibilities of the profits
we can derive from a proper encouragement of that tourist business which
the a-enic attractions' of our vicinity,
1 and the Park with its scenic Auto
Highway, is bound to attract.
| The full fr.dts of victory are seldom
gathered in on- following day, undoubtedly a large amount of advertising and publicity will be required ere
the totul benefits of these assets will
te garnered, but our representatives
ian certainly claim that gratitude
which is due to those who ful.il thoir
promisee and by so doin;, place it
within the power of an enterprising,
and energetic co nmunity, to secure every advantage or profit to whieh the
ian lay claim by virtue of geographi •
fositiin nnd natural resources.

A most remarkable ease has juat
been decided in a Montreal court, it
was an action, against Senator H. J.
01 oran for $-13 for un Irish lace dress
and clonk supplied to Ilis wife. There
was at no time any question aH to
the delivery of the goods in ijuesilon,
ioi aa to who I her iliey fitted the
Senator's Wife, nor yet a-e' to price or
anything ief that kind.
The senator's reason for refusing to
jay for his wife's dress and clonk was
that a certain contractor had agreed
to do so in rc-tuin for the exertion of
the senator's lnttuenco toward securing a ei'i'iain work i-n connection with
lhe ' im-trm iimi ,,f the Uoyal Vie-loria
Museum at Ottawa, a government
|eiiililiiu. '1 h• main contract [or ihis
building whh secured <i>y tho sonator'a
father In-law, with whom be was to
uso ins influence in 'favui* of th' gen-
tlemnn who was to pay for Mi*b.
Cloran's -dress, Father-in-law, lmw-
evei'i had other plans in \iew nnd re-
ii.si-il to he Influenced. In the meantime the dress and cloak had heen
delivered, bul the disappointed cun -
tractor refused to pay for it.
The    lirm     who   had supplied      the
'goods     thereupon    pressed     Senator
jClorun   for    payment,   and  when      he
| would not meet  the'demand sued him.
His reply was io attempt to make the
i.nsuci e-s.'ul contrast-seeker, a    parly
lo  the suit.      The  nan  in     question
acknowledged that   the dress bad been
promised,  but   was  io    be given only
if hi  secured th; 'desired work.      As
In- bad not done s(, -he considered that
be was  relieved  fi om responsibility  in
the matter and  the court  held     with
lum.
The nddent places Senator Cloran
itia most unfavorable light. His ac-
lion in the mutter reveals the type
of mnn lie is and the type of man of
whom senators arc sometimes made.
And yet Mr. Cloinn raiy look 'down
upon the public with equanimity, for
his position ns senator isa life appointment. He is free' lo get dresses
j for h':s wife in nny way he sees fit.—

What This Sectional Fire-
pot Means to You
These are some of the advantages of the Sunshine
Furnace. Our agent will be
pleased to show you others,
or write for booklet.
The "Sunshine" has a
straight-sided semi-steel
firepot, extra heavily ribbed and made in two
sections. The two sections
allow for contraction and
expansion—which prevents
cracking. The heavy ribs
and semi-steel give extra
strength and added radiating surface. Ashes cannot
adhere to the straight sides
which assures an all-over
clear fire. This means the
greatest heat from the
fuel consumed.

The Se-ott Antarctic vessel, the Turin Nova, has hcen repurchased by a
firm of sealers who were (he original
owners and who will shortly send lho
vessel in Newfoundland, where she will
be employed again in scaling.
In response to the urgent request of
the fishermen and salmon canners of
the province, who have been and are
nt present, suffering severely from the
lavages of seals and sea lions, the Pro J
vine'inl Government has sent out an
expedition in charge of Dr. Newcomli, !
to investigate the whole jjtieslion with
a view of ananinij for the 'destruction
of the seals and sea lions in places
where they are a menace to the salmon niching industry. In a govern -
mont report it Is stated that the seals
i n.l sea lions destroy more salmon j
than are caught for canning purposes.
1 lie seals nnd sea lions, as a rule just
take i.tti bite from under the throat of
the salmon and let the rest of the tish
to.
Mrs. J. 0. Perry, reptes?nting the
Cily Beautiful Association, recently
addressed the Vancouver Board of
Works, urging the adoption in tbat
city of the plan in vo*tie' in New York
which is a great factor in keeping tho
residential streets clean. In the Amer
ie-an metropolis the school hoys are
formed into cadet corps and squads
ere appointed whoBS duty it is to pick
up all pieces of paper, s*craps and rub-
1 ish that, may be lying about in tho
Btreets over which they are in charge,
anddeposit these in re'eptucles provided by the city. The work is done
Voluntarily by the boys, who take a
prvda in helping to maintain a clean
lity. Ihis. Mrs. Perry said, could be
e'.cns there, and she asked the board
oi works to endorse the plan and pro-
vide the receptacles. The former thoy
did, but for the present they cannot
supply  the latter.
With the object 0f making arrangements for a Cadet and Boys' Brigade
■ amp in that district, Major A. B.
Snow of Victoria, inspector of cadet
corps, visited Nelson last week. Ca-
dels and members of hoys brigades
j at Nelson. Giand Forks, Knslo, and
! Cranbrook will camp at a point which
Major Shaw hns not selected, but
whieh will probably he on Kootenay
lake or the west arm, from about July
7 to July 12. All school hoys aro
eligible to join the camp, and it is expected that a lai'ce numlter will be in
attendance. During thc week which
the boys will be under canvas drills,
rille m itches and other exercises will
be h"ld. and on the concluding day ol
the oamp, sports will take place,
Transportation nnd camp expenses
will be paid by the Dominion government, which is endeavoring to cne-our-
age the cadet movement in every legitimate manner.
Another example of the interest ot
the present government in agriculture
and in th? progress of the west is
shown by th; annoum-ement last week
..I ih' nprointment of Dr. J. P.
Creamer of Qu'Apple, Sa^k., as live
-t.eek commissioner for Western Canada. Dr. Creamer who is nn old timer in the west, bavin.' practised ns a
veterinary surgeon from 1882, is thoroughly acquainted with the prairie
I rovince- and the conditions and needs
of the live stO'k industry in the west.
He has been closely identified with
the industry for years. The appointment is a new one and is a resu.t ol
the study ot the live stock indu-try In
the werft by Hon. Martin Burrell,
Minister of Agriculture. Thc Minister
has decided thnt it is necessary to
leave a representative on the ground,
who is thoroughly acquainted with
western conditions. He will under -
tnke a vigorous campaign to foster
i_nd encourage the live stock industry
in Westecn Cannda which in recent
years hns been seriously declining.
According to the weekly report of
the trade nnd commerce department
publishi-d in Ottawa Inst week, Washington grown apple growers nre going
■ to make a bid thiB season for new
j markets In far east. It will be inler-
iesling news to British Columbia fruit
growers that a commissioner of Seattle
ha- ju<t returned from Colombo, Sing
e.pore, Calcutta and Hongkong, where
he arranged for a shipment to lie sent
from the Pacific Coast in November,
December and January. Some of these
will go via Seattle and others via
i?nn Frati'*isco. Years ago the only
apple exported to the Orient were netat
from the United States jn sailing vessels, the bariels being crudely packed
in huge ice chests. From February,
until April Austrnlinn And Tasmanian
apples now practically control the
I markets ofthe cities mentioned above.
Ihey arc brought in by gpeeial refrigerators on small steamers which aail
letw.s.n Australia, tbe Orient and
Knglnnd. The prices In tbe public
markets vary from twonty-flve to
forty cents a dozen and are ndmittad
free of duty.

and tho craft upset tho occupants,
Frank Labargo and Charles Wood,
wore thrown into the deep wator.
After making efforts to set the boat
right, but without avail, their cries
wore board by several people, but no
response was given until thoy had
been in the wator half an hour. Finally a resident answered their call.
Boats and launches were seized aud
after some diliiculty in locating tho
Wrecked men in tho dark two launches
came upon them, hanging to their
canoe. One man was beneath thc boat
nnl utterly exhausted und a moment
later would havo been drowned. They
were hauled over the edge of Ying -
ling's launch, whieh was tho largest
and temporarily attended to while
they were rushed to shore. Spirits
and warm clothing had been brought
down and were upplied to the un -
conscious, men, and tho shipyard ambulance used to take them to the neat
est hotel. Dr. Mossman was on hand
and attended lo them. H. L. Rothwell, who was at a party, rushed foi
bis launch Immediately the alarm was
given. Mike Yingling got out of bod
and rushed to his launch barefooted
end partially dressed. Capt. Bour-
gois, D,T, Bulger, W. Raifo and others accompanied tbe rescuing boats,
and Fred Vipond, who manned a row-
boat to the scene of rescue. The
men's lives were unquestionably saved
through iheir promptness.
On Wednesday Mr. and Mrs. John
Reid of West Demars were in town
on business in their iow boat. Returning in the evening they started
out in the'ir boat from a small bay
below town when the wind got up,
and in a short time huge waves began to show up, reaching the party
when opposite Crescent bay. They

Mrs. Reid jumped out into the lako
neck high and wiib difficulty reached
shore, and was picked up by a Pass -

her home, eight miles south, in her
drenehed clothes. Mr. Reid there met
her, having succeeded in manning tho
boat alone, after the storm subsided.
