REVELSTOKE'S
OPPORTUNITY
Grand Trunk Pacific Construction will Affect City Commerce by Big Bend Route-
Citizens Wake Up!
A meeting of the Board ol Trade has
been called for tonight to discuss ways
and means for extending and opening
up additional transportation facilities
in tbo Big Bond country in order that
the trade which will flow from the
construction of that part of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway between Yel-
lowbeud Pass and Fort George may be
obtained for Reveletoke. Those who
have been in a country wheio railway
conetruction bas been carried on can
readily comprehend what an enormoiiB
quantity of goods are consumed in the
construction of 300 or 400 miles of
lailway. At present the Fraaer river
country produces nothing and every
pound of food, horee feed and supplies
must be taken in there. Contractors
who are figuring on tendering for the
construction of the Fraaer river section of the railway have had, and now
have men in the Cauoe river country
looking over the route with a view to
obtaining via Revelstoke and tbe Columbia aud Canoe rivers a quick and
easy route for taking in tiic thousands
of men and horses and ibuusandB of
tons of supplies that will be required
in the construction of the Fraser river
section cf the railway and there is
every prospect tbat the route will be
chosen because tbe route via Kamloops and the North Thompson is 100
miles longer and is impracticable, and
tbe route via Edmonton and Yellow-
head Pass has been found impracticable for a wagon road owing to the
fact that there are 150 miles of muskeg
to pass through. On the other hand
the route via Revelstoke consists of an
almost unbroken stretch of navigable
water from Revelstoke to a point ou
Canoe river within 45 miles of the
Fraser river near Tete Jaune Cache
the only obstacle being Death Rapids
which can be gotten around at reasonable cost by means of a short tramway
of about 3 miles length, a charter for
which has been obtained by the proprietors of the Revelstoke Navigation
Company, which company during tbe
past six seasons have by means of the
Steamer Revelstoke furnished an excellent service as fur uorth as Death
Rapids. Surveys for this tramway
bave been made and equipment lias
been secured and just as soon as th<j
conditions warrans it the actual build
ing of this line and of a steamer to
operate on the Columbia river above
Death Rapids and up Canoe river to
the Big Log Jam, will he commenced.
It ia to the interest of every business
man and property owner in Revelstoke to use every effort to impress on
the Grand Trunk Pacific people in tlie
Strongest possible way the fact that
Uin  is the most feasible   route 10 the
are paying licenses on. A trail has
been built part of the way, it is true,
but it ends "nowhere." It miiBt be
said however tbat this year's estimates
contain provision for completing this
trail, but if the government bad realized ita duty to this constituency they
would have completed it years ago and
without requiring the Board of Trade
and otheiB to keep pounding away at
them year by year to build it.
What is wanted in the Big Bend
country is the spending of just a fraction of the revenue it is producing and
tbe people of thia burg should insist
on it being done, or know the reason
why. If the Grand Trunk people decide to go in this way it mesne that
the population of Revelstoke will
double in two years.
It means that Revelstoke merchants
will have more btteineBa on their
hands than they can handle. It
means that real estate in Revelstoke
will double in value and it means
work for every man in the community
and more revenue, for the government.
It also means renewed activity in
mining in the Big Bend, and while
there is now one lumber camp in tbat
district, tbere will be dozens of them
when once the country is opened up
and in all probability a railroad north
and south at an early date. Tbe
benefits will not only be coming in
during tho period of construction of
the Frazer river section, but for all
time to come. As booh as people can
get into the Big Bend country beyond
Death Rapids and once see its resources, there will be no "let up" to
its development and Revelstoke will
thrive as it never has in tbe past as
we have a comer in the trade in tbat
country. Therefore let all good citizens get iu and boost in every possible
way and show the Grand Trunk
Pacific people that we want to help
them to come this way and at the
same time help ourselves, and last but
not least let all our people give the
Federal and Provincial governments
to clearly understand that we are in
earnest and that we want them both
to do the rigbt thing and at once.

FOREST PRESERVATION
Comprehensive Scheme to be
Tried by Victoria Authorities
Victoria, May 19.—A comprehensive program for tbe better protection
of tbe British Columbia forests from
fire this summer is now in course of
preparation by tbe chief commissioner
of lands and works, and it is expected
that within a very short time the appointment uf lire wardens will Im
made.
Last summer 23 wardens were in ac
tive service all over tbe province, but
this year more than that number will
be employed on the coast alone, so that
in all probability the fire protection
service throughout the province will
be doubled. All the deputy wardens
will be employed full time by the
province, and on the occasion of dang
erous bush lires scores of extra men
will be taken on the force temporarily
to light the outbreaks. At one time
last summer during the dry season
there were some '200 men on tbe tin
protection pay sheets.
Fire warden McKay having resigned
last [all to take the   position   of   pro
vincial timber officer, it is believed that
Mr. W. C. Gladwin, iiis lieutenant last
summer, will be appointed  chief  war
Fraser river, and  having succeeded in  den this year.

mand that both lhe Dominion gover-
inent aud the Provincial government
extend liberal assistance town.ils the
building of such lines of communication as may be necessary to open up
this route.
It is tlio bounden duty of the Dominion government to so improve the
Upper Columbia river as to make
same safe for navigation in all ordin-
ajy stages of water, by removal of
rocka and any other impediments
capable of being removed uud also to
assist iu providing some means for
transporting goods and passenger!
around Death Rapids which is the
only non-navigable portion of the Columbia between Revelstoke and Cauoe
river.
The Provincial government is yearly
drawing thousands of dollars in taxes
and license fees on the hundreds of
square miles of timber along tbe Columbia and Cauoe rivers and tbeir
tributaries, and it ia not seeking too
much of that government that tbey
be asked to make a grant of one quarter of just one year's revenue from the
timber lands in that district towards
providing roads and other menus of
getting into that Canoe river country
where there are thousands of ucrce of
good arable land that will be settled
upon as soon as people oan get in
there and see what the country is like.
The Provincial government although
pulling in thousand of dollars annually for license fees on timber lands between Smith creek and the mouth of
Canoe river have not as yet done bo
much as complete a trail  so that per
sona who have timber  holdings thore
can get   into   their timber except   by I bo along and bitter one  between

Long Fight  Between   Government and Opposition.
Ottawa, May 11).—The discussion

"marking time." Sir Wilfrid Laurier'B
latest proposal is for the appointment
of a committee of both sidea of the
House for the purpose of considering
amen Iments, but the Premier, while
disposed to drop the marked ballot
provisions, still adheres to tbe principle of "padded" lists. Tbat is he wants
specially appointed enumerators to
prepare the lists, which iB practically
the old proposal, und which the Opposition apparently will not tolerate lor
a moment.
The Conservatives met in caucus

It has frequently been daid that

The somewhat celebrated peace

they would be done hy, this is
quite out of the question in these

commercialism is the all ruling

 to deprive hereditary princes  anil

is sheathed in brass and studded

noticeable that the minds of all our

in   reality   another   form   of  red

THE SCAVENGER SKIRT
White Plague Lurks in this Dangerous Appendage.
1( tbere is une article of woman's
wearing apparel that seems to set nt
defiance both grace and hygiene it is
the scavenger skirt. It trails through
the mud and mire, through the snows
of January, the slush of March aid
the showers of April, and wherever it
winds its blthy length, men arise and
call it not bleBsed. The Montreal
Star commenting on tbe subject says :
"Just why tbe dainty sex is deter
mined to sweep up the filth of tbe
streets with her skirts and then carry
a large portion of tbe collection home
with her to distribute between the
carpets of the living rooms and the
lecesses ol the wardrobes, must be aud
ever remain a mystery to the mere
man. He gets his boots into the dirt
but he takes paine to cle.in tbem as
often a. possible. Moreover, when he
fails to leave as much of tbis refuse of
the streets on the door mat as possible
he anticipates a lecture from tbe
household guardian just as soon as she
has bustled about tbe house "Ith ber
dusty'skirt and provided microbeB for
the children's breathing." RevelBtoke
is the same as any other city in tbis
respect and our fair sex should take
heed of this and exercise more care
when using wet.muddy or dusty streetB.
Legislation on tbe subject would
never be tolerated in this free country.
We can forbid smoking in certain
places; we can attempt to cut off tbe
supply of cigarettes; we can prohibit
tbe scattering of papers on tbe streets.
But to interfere with a lady's right to
trundle a microbe-museum at ' tbe
bottom of ber walking-skirt would be
too much for the Constitution. Only
tbe etl'orts of men to dottle the air and
litter up the streets can be attacked
iu this community, where women are
denied the ballot.
Tbe remedy of this abuse lies with a
few independent women i, ho may induce their lesa courageous sisters to
refuse to trail tbe scavenger skirt
] through our city thoroughfares. For
'a dinner gown or evening dreBS the
long skirt may be graceful and becoming; on tbe street it is not only a
nuisance but a menace. It would not
be out of place for those interested in
tbe work nl fighting consumption to
consider how the scavenger skirt has
helped to extend the ravages of tbis
white plague. Fashion iB one of the
greatest forces in the world, and when
under its influence woman will fall
into strange capers. Tbe stout matron
will wear plaids with flounces if she is
told that they are to be in style; the
slender creature will don stripes uncomplainingly   if   she is asBured that

tbey are the proper garb. Hut may
we not. hope that there is enough
-living common Bense among womankind to keep them from further endangering the health ot their households? There is nothing more ungraceful and amusing than the

WILL COTTON GROW IN B. C.
Visitor Brings Seeds of New
Hybrid Plant.
Capt. L. P. Bowler, who is visiting
I!. O , and who is at the coast now,
bas brought a email quantity of cotton
seeds, which will be given to those applying. He is desirous of Beeing
whether or not the'tree will grow in
this province. He thinks the chances
are fairly good, especially in the dry
belt as tbe tree has been a success in
Mafekiug South Africa. Capt. Bowler having brought the seeds from that
portion of the world.
"Tbis is not a shrub, tut a tree,"
Capt Bowler remaked, ''being a hybrid between Peruvian sea island and
Mexican long Btable. It is more productive than the ordinary plant, and
gives a far greater percentage of lint.
Ordinary cotton gives about 48 per
cent, lint, while this produces 60 per
cent., the other 40 per cent being
seed. Not only tbat, but the new tree
produces from 1,000 to 1,500 poundB
per acre. Moreover, it iB a perennial,
whereas the other is an annual, and
bears 18 months after planting.
In Egypt, the new kind in grown
on an enormous scale, aid a large
company bas'been formed, with the
nephew of thi Khedive in charge, to
specially grow it. It is nlso grown iu
Queensland, and in India the government is di.-tributing ton-: of seeds to
email planters to see what can be
done witb it there. As it will nearly
always grow where peaches grow I
do not see why Uritish Columbia cannot produce cotton, and if the Province can, another ;.reat resource will
be added. Warm valleys, with light,
sandy soil are required, though it
grows well in loam. The seeds are
planted ten feet apart, about an inch
deep, and 450 may be put into the
acre."
DOMINION EXPOSITION
B. C. Will be Well Represented
at Calgary Fair
The provincial government has decided to arrange (or an exhibit at tbe
Dominion exposition, which will take
place early in Julyv at Calgary. Tbe
announcement was made yesterday by
Hon R.'G.Tatlow, minister of finance
and agriculture. He stated that,
twhile it would be dillicult to prepare a
display which would give an adequate
idea of the fruit growing poesibilities
of the country, because of the dates on
which the fnir would tako place,
everything possible would bo done to
make tbe exhibit representative of the
resources of Briti.h Columbia aud
creditable in every respect.
Hon. Mr. Tutlow stated that in
place of fresh fruit there will hn sent
to the exhibition fruit in a preserved
state. A complete display of tbe
various timbers found in this province,
ot tbe mineral deposits, eto , would be
included. R. M. Pal.ner, provincial
commissioner of horticulture, would
have charge of the arrangements, and
already had  commenced , reparations.
There will also be individual exhibits from the following six districts
of the province; Revelstoke, Vernon,
Nelson, Kelowna, Cranbrook and
Ohllliwaok,
Forecast and Destiny
Apropos of the numerous recent
automobile accidents in all portions ol
the globo, the following is significant
ol the times.
The Rev. G. I., Merrill, of St. Paul,
Minn,, soes in automobiles tho fulfilment ol the prophecy ol Niihum ii,!;
"Tho chariots shall rage in thestrcots,
they shall jostle ono against another
in the broad ways; they)sball seem like
torches, tli y shall run like tbe light
niiigs." A reference to the chapter
further discloses that iu verso eight
there is also a seeming allusion to
these same chariots in the sentence:
"Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none
shall look back." No better description could be given of the conduct of
the average ohaelTeur and his companion a.
By way of warning to our modern
charioteers wbo "rage in the streets,"
it may lie well to quote tbe concluding
verse ol the chapter as foreshadowing
the doom to which, il tbe Minnesota
interpreter of prophecy is correct, the
soorching chauffeurs may look forward;
"Behold, I am against thee, saith the
Lord ol Hosts, and I will burn bur
chariots in lho smoke, and the Bword
shall devour thy young lions; and I
will cutoff thy prey Irom the earth,
and the voice of thy messengers shall
no more be beard,"
