PRAIRIE CROPS
B. OLUMBER
Mr. Meredith Speaks in Optimistic Terms of the Splendid
Crops in the East and B. C.
Lumber.
Mr. Thos. Meredith, tbe well-known
lumberman ot the count, was iu the
city yesterday on liiu return from an
intended trip throughout the east.
Mr. Moredith epent over a month on
the prairies, and took in the position
of business generally. To the Mail
Hkuai.ii Mr. Moredith said:
"The crops never looked better in
the history of the weit than they do
today, and are fully a month ahead of
last year. There are over one million
acres in advance of any previous 'year
in crops, and should bring the 1908
total to well o.er the 100,000,000
mark."
Being asked as to the lumber
situation from tbe prairie standpoint,
be reuiarkel that there was a shortage
of lumber at present in the eatt and
that there would not be sufficient
lumber in British Columbia cut to
meet the demands expected thn full.
For instance iliere is not within 50
per cent, of the lumber stacked in the
yards at the mills that U estimated I.
ibe uewsptpers, aud will! a sbortagi
ol logs, which la known and admitted
by everyone, the mills will no. bo iu a
position this fall to saw up to the
demand. Should ibe deniau I arise
for lumber later nu, of which very me
at all a, quainted with things 00 tbe
prairie, are expecting, it will be found
too late that tbeie will be no means of
getiiug cars fur haulage purposes. It
it expected, and rightly so, tbat tbe
railway companies will be taxed to
their utmost to rush the wheat to
sea ports, and it will take every rail
way car tbat tbe companies oan put
into commission to move tbe crops.
The consequence will be lhat the
lumbering demands for the prairies
will bave to suffer for want of transportation. Tbe lumbering business
bas a bright outlook and there will be
something doing this fall along that
line,
Mr. Meredith left by the sonth train
for Pingstoh Creek in company witb
Mr. Rand Gibbons, to look over the
plant of the Gibbous Lumber Co., of
which he is 1 large shareholder.

ERUPTION INDICATED
Noxious Fumes Arising From
Mount Baker.
Seattle, June 17.—Tbat there are
internal disturbances in Mt. Baker,
and that some surprise is plauned by
the monster, is tbe report brought by
Aiakel Curtis and a party Irom the
mountain, who returned yesterday
from a trip to the summit.
They say the crater nt the base of
the centre of one of the three topmost
peaks has changed its location fully
a quarter of a mile to the eastward
since latt seen six mouths ago, and
that it is spouting noxious gases,
smoke and sulphur. About the new
crater, which appears larger than the
old one, the snow has partially melted
and ie covered with a dirty coating of
tulpbur.
ATE THEIR GUIDE
Awful Tale of Cannibalism from
Canadian Far North
Montkeal, June 16—The provincial
police bave been seeking for traces in
tbe far northern part of Quebec of two
kunten and a guide, but bave given
up tbe search, believing that all bave
perished. It develops that the two
men, Grissett aud Bernard, first ate
tbe guide, August Lemieu, and then
one ot tbe two left ate tbe other. The
remains of two men bave been found,
authenticating the gruesome tale of
cannibalism. The third man has evidently been starved to death or gone
mad. Tbe hunters could not lind
their cache of provisions, hence their
plight.
Women Stole Peep
Wabash, Ind., June 16.—During a
district meeting of Oddfellows held at
Browne oornen, east of this city, tbe
window! ot the lodge ball were led
open and a band of married women
gathered near tbe building and plan
ned to tee tbe ceremonies, climbing
trees near tbe windows and mounting
ladders conveniently located. Frightened by discovery, the women fled,
but the lodge passed a vote to prosecute tbem and tbe prosecutor bas been
given evidence.
PROBABLE
SUICIDE
Dead Man Found in Central
Hotel Bedroom—cyanide of
Potash a Likely Cause—An
Inquest Held.
Broke, morbid, loathing himself,
and feeling that life had now no more
inducements for him, the rea<tion of a
long bout of drinking setting in, and
dazed by the fact that nil his money
was gone, with no one In whom ho
is'iuld turn to fnr advice und possible
cnii-iilation, E. B yee, tin- of life and
holding in his band the mentis of a
swift nnd complete end to all his
troubles "cyanide," that instantane-
siusly fatal and deadly poison, made up
his mind for the last time, swallowed
the morsel and fell stiff and rigid on
his face on his hands and knees in a
bedroom at tbe Central botel on Saturday, unknown to anyone.
Such is the likely stoiy which
could be told, if tbe deed had been
done before other mortal eyes, but the
terrible death is shrouded in mystery
and   the   truth will never be known.
E. Boyee, middle aged, and well
known In Revel.toke bad but recently
come in from lhe Bend and with a
large sum of money bad entered upon
a wild drinking bout which took away
all bis cash and left bim practically
"stoney." On Saturday latt be had
recovered and had' purchased some'
cyanide of potassium, from Dr. Cross,
which he ri quired for trapping and
killing wolves. He was seen on Sat
in-day going up to bedroom K to
change bis shoes, but bad not registered at tbe hotel as engaging any
room. W. Carrington, the hotel
porter, tried to get into his room
thinking be was drunk, to rouse him,
but being told to let bim alone he
went away. The second time he tried,
about midnight on Monday, and found
that the door misted, he pushed hard
and opened it sufficient to get his
hand in, aud touched Boyee's forehead,
an icy cold touch! the chill of death.
Carrington informed the proprietor
who notified tbe police and the coroner. Medical assistance was secured
but the man had been dead nearly 30
hours.
Tbe body wsb found in a semi
kneeling position and fully clothed.
A post mortem wss made but the
doctors state that no test could be
obtained for either strychnine, morphia or cyanide. The body was :i ne-
I culur and healthy. There was un
' abraeion over the bridge ol the nose, a
j dint on the forehead, left side of face
turning green, but internal organs
practically normal. Further medical
evidence showed that tho heart gave
evidence of sudden death, and poison
was possible by the rod appearance of
the stomach. The doctors stated tbat
death had been probably caused by
poison, but could not be proved, aod
that when thoy snw tbe body life had
bden extinct about 30 hours. On the
budy were found a watob, photo, box
of cyanide of potassium, etc.
At tbe inquest, yesterday, no evidence wsb forthcoming as to how the
deceased met bis dea:h, and tbe jury
brought in a verdict of "death from
heart failure (roio unknown causes.
Knocked Out in the Eighth.
l'Aiiis, June 16.—Tommy Burns, tbe
Canadian heavyweight pugilist, defeated Bill Squires, the Australian, in
the eighth round of a bard fought
battle at Neuilly on Saturday. Squires
has shown marked improvement since
bis appearance in San Francisco a year
ago, when be was knocked out by tbe
first blow struck, He bad Burns in
rather a bad way during tbe first five
rounds, but the Canadian's greater
staying power and superior ring generalship won out in the end. A stom-
ich blow io tbe eighth round sent
Squires down ior the count,

BERRIES DESTROYED
Remarkable  Crime   at  Hood
River, Oregon.
Hoon River, Ore, June 16—The
police authorities of this city today
invoked the aid of the Portland detectives in runningdown the conspirators
who destroyed 10,000 crates of strawberries, valued at $30,000, belonging
to the growers who are member* of the
Farmers' Irrigating Company.
With heavy charges uf uu explosive
the conspirators blew up one hundred
and fifty feet of Hume on a hillside on
the west side of Hood River some
time early Sunday morning and today two-thirdt of the crop in the valley, or about 400 acres, is without
water and will be in this condition for
at least three days. The damage was
done at a time when the berry season
ii at Hi height.
GAME RESERVE
Warden Williams Makes Trip
Through East Kootenay.
Vancouver, Juno 16.—A. Bryan
Williams, Provincial Game Warden,
has just returned from a trip to East
Kootenay, whore ho wont for the purpose of selecting a location for a provincial game reserve. He will make
another tour before finally dociding.
During his tour Mr. William* covered
200 miles on foot through a very rugged country. Ho noticed plenty of
game, and found that the herds of
elk were rapidly increasing in numbers. It is probable that when a
reserve is selected its southern border
will be some miles uorth of the International Boundary, and that its eastern border will be sufliciently wost of
Alberta to insure that tho overflow
from the reserve will bo kept well
within the Province.
Will Lessen Crime

steps were taken Saturday night towards forming an organization among
the Italians to discouraging tbe carrying of knives and other dangerous
weapons. It ii hoped to spread the

LET'S FIGHT SQUARE
Some little while ago a Kamloops
contemporary accused Revelstoke
of boosting her route up the Canoe
River to ths- G, T. P, construction
at the expense ol their route, Mating that whenever Kevelstoke wants
to get anything sin- does it by
knocking at Kamloops. To this
we give the lie direct, for throughout all this campaign, if it may fo
-».• called, when advocating our
own route as the shortest and most
accessible of any, we have never
done any boosting at the expense
of any other city who may have
claims for a better right, nor have
we advertised our route by knocking any other, or publishing deliberate falsehoods. Kamloops now
contends that the Kevelstoke route
compares very disadvantageous^
with her own, and tries to point
out that Kevelstoke cannot furnish
the necessary supplies for contractors and generally endeavors to put
a damper on anything we may
have. While we do not wish at
this stage of the game to commence
picking holes in our neighbors and
trying lo discountenance everything tbey have, yet at the same
time we deny that these statements
regarding the unfeasihility of the
route as published in the Kamloops
paper are correct. Reports that
have been circulating in Golden
touching our route are far from
being what is really the case and
those reading them would get an
altogether erroneous idea ol what
we have and arc asking for. In
taking lip  this  question  we  have1
worked on a principle which in
our estimation and in the
opinion of many in this
province is perfectly square and
straightforward, advocating our
claim and urging our possibilities
without doing so by knocking some
one else. We know and are convinced that, we have the goods and
can deliver them without trying to
prove it at the expense of other
points and casting reflections and
making false insinuations against
them. Our chief aim is to make
this matter a provincial one and
secure the trade which must of
necessity arise from a work of such
magnitude as railroad construction
to B. C. We. would ask the government to hear in mind that
assurance be given towards opening up our route at present conditional upon contractors deciding
to use this route and can see no
objections to a similar promise
being given to Kamloops, but at
all costs this trade should bo kept
in the province which Kevelstoke
is endeavoring primarily to secure
in the first place while incidently
feeling assured that her route is
the most feasible of any. If this
matter cannot be taken up by
cities in the same strain ns this, it
BeemB indeed passing strange and
Revelstoke will never resort to
gaining any object, however important by casting aspersions on
her neighbors and by taking an
unfair and mean advantage.
but once his slumbers are broken
he is apt to move quickly. Manufacturers are constantly being
moved from England to continental
centres, driven forth by a fallacious
fiscal policy, and it behooves Canada to show that she has even
greater advantages to offer than
the most favorably situated European countries, and that her prospects for manufacturing concerns
are not one whit less than time
afforded to farmers by her fertile
lands.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Socialism?
Revelstoke, B 0.,
June 15, 1908.
Bdtlor MAn.-iiKiiAt-ii.
Dear Sir ;—In an editorial in a
recent edition of your paper, you took
up the subject of Socialism under tlio
beading, 'They have not told us,1' aud
you dealt with a few of tie cliiei objections to, and pointed out the impracticability of what those people
wbo call themselves Socialists advocate. In reply to this you p ibli.hed
a letter from the secretary of the Socialist Party Executive, giving a long
history of social evolution from his
point of view, which being condensed
simply meant that society haa evolved
and will continue to evolve, a point
wbioh nobody, «o far as I know, haa
ever disputed. That the evolution of
society is going to sbape itself alonj.
the lines that those people proles, to
teach ia another matter and from the
way in which that gentleman shirked
your questions, we can only conclude
KEEP  UP STATISTICS. that they themselves when intelligent-
Ill a very short while the United '* questioned, can only find refuge in
States    will   he   turning   its whole \ generalities which  have no immediate
attention   to   the   Fourth of  July
celebrations, which  although  very
laudable   and   right, are   usually
carried out lo the limit, which turn
rejoicing into sorrow
practical man and if tbe sncialis's
cannot give us some idea of how they
propose to do things and answer a
small number of elementary points,
they had better go back to the common school mid learn that Ihe first
thing to know in any given undertaking is what is to be done, what
bave you got to do it with, and whai
will be the cun.iqnenoes when it in
done.
At pre .eut  their  propo. ition to me
is an unintelligible pipe dream.

METHODISr APPEAL
Keep Religion out of Politics
Says the Conference
The action of ministers of the gospel in taking part in political issues
for the hem Iii ol their party, and using
the pulpit for their political utterances
was strongly condemned by the recent
Method st conference at Winnipeg,
aud iu a thrilling speech, Rev. Wellington Bridgemau, the president of
the con lerenoe, strongly urged upon
tbe ministers to do their duty by tbe
people of the church and leave politics
alone.
In opening the couferet ce Rev.
Wellington Hridgeuian, the president,
made a thrilling speech in which be
dem.unctd the ministers of any denomination wbo sank so low that they
waded into politics for tbe benefit of
tbeir party and themselves.
"1 w nt to defend the ministry," he
said, "but if they want to wade into
politics for their own party, then let
them do it, hut in the name of Heaven
and the name of Christ, I ask our
in misters to refrain from interfering
with polities."

Style and Value
Some men put correct
style above everything else,
when selecting Suits and
Overcoats. Others demand
wear.
The Fit-Reform trademark is in the pocket ol Fit-
Reform garments to guarantee that you will get both.
This trademark is the
all-important part of a Suit
oi Overcoat.
It's the biggest "little
thing" in Canada, because
it stands for the best there
is in tailoring.
Look for it when you
come for your new- Suits.

TWELFTH OF JULY
Elaborate Preparations for Big
Demonstration in Revelstoke
Elaborate preparations are being
mnde for the great demonstration on
the 'Glorious Twelfth," which promises to be a record this year iu magnitude. When Revelstoke gets down to
business and sets her mind upon ani
one object she usually gets it, and oi
thi. occasion the local Orangcniei
hive certainly made up their mini'
upon a demonstration that will b-
second to none and bard to beat in
tbe future.
The committees are hard at work
arranging all details, and formulating
plans that will make July 12th tbe
biggest gala day in the history of Revelstoke. Posters and handbills have
been sent lortb describing tbe attractions for tbat day, and the Orange
men here anticipate a bumper crowd
from all districts. Tbe city will be
appropriately decorated for the occa
■ion and the merchants will d> well If
they make special efforts in dressing
tbeir windows and making their stores
as artistio and attractive as possible
Several arches will be erected io various parts of tbe city and the grounds
where the demonstration will take
place, will be suitably adorned witb
emblems typical of the occasion.
A full programme of athletic sports
and sanies bas been drawn up and
will be published later. Four bands',
from Summerland, Kamloops, Vernon
and Revelstoke will be present and
take part in the grand process-ion.
Some of tbe best and ablest Orange
speakers will give addresses and the
Order itself will be fully represented.
It is anticipated that several thou
sand visitors will be in the city on the
12th, and perfect arrangements will
have to be made to cater lor and accommodate this vast crowd. Revel'
stoke knows how to entertain and
welcome her visitors, and she will not
be behind on this occasion. Special
rates on trains and steamers have
been secured and the trip to the '-Gateway of the Kootenays," the "Mountain
City," will form a most delightful
holiday.
The Origin of the "Kilties"
Seven years ago, in New York, the
"KiltieB" first made their appearance
before any but a home audience, and
from that day to this, they have never
been allowed to retire from public
view.
Their appearance was the Bignal for
instantaneous approval, and since
then they have travelled over the
countries of Canada, United States,
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
and Mexico, regularly meeting with
tbe succesi that concerted effort for
perfection, in musical matlcts, deserves.
Unique in their costutno, the "Kilties" are a distinct feature in the
band) ol today. There are bauds and
bands—but only one "Kilties"—this
is the judgment of all who hear them.
Whether it is their brilliant costumes,
the fact that they are on lour so long,
that ihey never lose touch witb each
other, or the natural ability of the
Scotch-Canadians to play well, the
fact remains that there is no other
organization of a similar nature today
that is more popular than the "Kilties." This delightful oompany of
artists sre accompanied by a picked
male choir, the famous troup of Scotch
Pipers aod Dancers, and will be seen
and heard in this city on Wednesday,
July 8th, 1908, at the Roller Rink.
Tbey are now ou their fifteenth tour
and judging from the past, it v ill be
as successful as thoie that have gone
belore.     The   "Kilties"  concerts sre
to get the best results, it is not a
cause for wonder that the "Kilties"
are bailed with delight wheiever they
appear. The hand is. under the leadership of Albert Cook,

'olumbla fishing   regulations  appear
■ the "Canada Gazette",  some of the
terns .ire:
Fishing with nets in Biiiitsh Coluni

Cricket
The regular weekly match was played lost Saturday between the Shamrock aod Maple Leaf teams resulting
in a very easy win for the Shamrocks.
however tbe "Maple Leaves have not
yet fallen," and another time hope to
show tbe Shamrocks how to do it.
A very pleasant feature of the sport
is the interest shown by visitors from
the outside; who think the club might
be subsidised by the Tourist Associa
tion. A number of visitors were much
interested in the game last Saturday,
and Mr. Marchant of the Victoria
club who waB invited to play on the
team showed at once a scientific
knowledge of the game. B, R. Atkins
played in good form, and had the
honor of making top score There-

CREATION OF PEAKS
A Theory as to the Formation
of Mountains.
Revelstoke is a typical city of the
mountains, whose grandeur cannot
but deeply appeal to all wbo pass
through her gates. As we live in the
mountains, it is always interesting to
know the newest speculations of scientists aa to bow they were formed. Here
is one of the latest theories as to their
milking, written by J, 0. Vandyke
and published in Scribner's Magazine:
"In recent years theories of mountain formation bave changed like
everything else scientific. The ancient
belief tbat the mountains were the
'muscles' or the 'backbone' of the continents never was scientific at any
time. Instead of being au extra layer
of rock that binds the continents together, they are the ragged edges of
the cracks in the mueoniy, or folds in
the crust, or extru .ions of the interial
matter through the cracks. Tbey are
points ol the crust's weakness rather
than its strength. The new theories
bark back to tbe original formation of
the earth. Tbe conception of a hot
drop of a world swinging in space,
gradually cooling and forming a shell
as smooth as a billiard ball, bas been
partly abandoned. Tbe nebular hypo
thesis has been modified, tbe so-called
meteoric hypothesis has been found
inadequate; and tbe more plausible
planetessitnal theory of Professor
Chamberlain and Salisbury has been
put forth.
1 he latest theory argueB the forma-
tion of tbo world by gradual accretions
from planetary bodies It assumes the
origin of our solar system in a common epirul nebula—the nebula I; ing
in a thin solid or liquid stale, a. suggested by the spectrum analysis of it
The knots ur portions of the ueb. a
showing the most concentration .it
the nuclei of future plauels, and tb
thinner haze the poriiotm from which
the knots are formed. All these knots
move about the central muss (thu sun)
in elliptical orbits of considerable ccn-
tricity. The planetessiiiials are gathered in, and through accretion form
such u world as ours, hy the crossing
of the elliptical orbits in lhe course of
their Inevitable shifting*.
The theory deduces several stages or
periods in the formation of lhe earth.
(1) Separation of the material of the
earth Irom the  parent  nebula.    (2)
Condensation of the rock matter into
a molten spbciiod through accessions
of materials and increased bent. (3)
Solidification of the molten sphcriod
ut the centre of the outer edge. (4)
(ileal vulcanic action following solidification of the crust, (6) Periods ol
atmospheric uud liydrnBplieric action
over volcanic action.

Pants—Ry a Soy.
Pants wee made for men and not
for women. Women were made for
man and nor, lor pants. When a nisin
pants fur a woman und i woman pnv-
for a man—thesp, my friends, arcs
pair of pants, but these pants do not
last. Pants nre like molasses, bect.,.sc
they urn thinner iu lint weather und
thicker in cold weather. A fat ihhd
cannot keep up his pints in the hoi
weather without suspenders, but a Jog
cun. Men sometimes make mistake!
in pants, and these mistakes are celled
breeches of promise. There has beeu
much disflcuBsiou, my friends, as to
whether pants is plural or singular.
Now in my miod, when a man wears
pants, tbey are plural, but when he
dots not, it id singular.
