THE MOOSE
CONCERT
About 150 people enjoyed a Que program followed by a dance last Tues -
day evening in St. Francis hall. Revel-
stoke Lodge of the Loyal Order of
Moose, were the originators ot the entertainment and hosts of the evening.
In the absence of the present Dictator,
Mr. H. W. Edwards, who is suffering
from u severe cold, the chair was ably
lilleilliy Mr. Alex Grunt. Un the platform were also Mr. Cruigmoyle and
Mr. Watt. An excellent program of
songs and recitation- was presented,
Miss Parker who was in spleudid voice
sang twice and was heartily enforced.
Mi. Qeo. Hawker sang the "Toreodor"
and being encored gave a selection
from Service entitled "The Cremation
of Sam MeOc." A second recitation
followed, his second song "Sir Hector
McDonald" which was dramatically
rendered. The male quartette sung a
couple of selections in ih'ir usual tin-
ished style- Mr Kerr was well suited with his selections "Down the Vale"
and "Asleep in the Deep," the latter
sung a- aii encore. The novelty hits
of the program, however, were furnish
ed by Mr. Bert Allen, entertainer, who
seems possessed of the ability to imitate anything. He performed iwo
brilliant selections on the piano, then
imiHated church chimes, and a hand -
organ, on the same Instrument, end -
ing  .villi some bird-like whistling,     A
lew of hi- other -units included imitations of i jackdaw, a cat and dog
fight, a drink of beer, cork pulling,
tune playing with a lend pencil or with
his own musical face. Mr.; Allen has a
finished vaudeville turu which is certainly unusual. The accompanist of
the ovening, Mrs. McOailum, performed bet dutie in her usual excellent
manner, and afterwards played forsev
eral dances until Orr's orchestra arrival at  10 :i'i.
The dan i program contained many
i Id time favorites, the seeond pan be
'iu: ' hiei'.i ..'..li iiiii .. an,i dan • -
which were . njoyed Immensely.
Refreshments were served about 11:30
home-cooking being   a not! eu
lure.   Afterwards dancing  under    the
guidance of   floor-master  Craigmoyle,
continued till lutein the morning.

sidod at ameeting of the city council
held in the city hall, on Friday nig*',
when there were also pre-eni Alderini'i
Barber, McSorley, Horobiu, Mi'Klnrffcn
Howson and Bourne, wiih Ihe city .-o-
lieitor (Mr. McCarler) and city clerk,
(Mr.  W.A. Gordon.)
There were also in attendance, Mr.
W.I. Brlggs, Mi. Gillan, Mr, and Mrs.
Carlson, Mr, Sibliald. jr., Mr. Coy an I
Mr, Barraciough.
(in motion of Aid. Howson, seconded
by All. McKinnon, the ordinary pro -
cc clilie of business was suspended in
oidei (hat precedence might be given
to matters connected with laundry
sites in which those in atteudonce were
interested.
The ciiy solicitor sai I ii would prob
ably shorten the discussion if ho explained what had been done in the
matter. He understood that the am -
endment of the laundry bylaw, which
bad been read at a previous uie Ping,
was 10 the effect that the bylaw should
not apply to steam laundries, and that
there were requests from two parties
for sites for steam latmdric-. The Ruv-
elstoke Oenerol Agencies Wanted cei
tain lots in Block 9'J lobe included iu
prescribed laundry siie-, and Mr. Coy,
who represented another concern wished to have lots 20, "21 and -J include!
ia the prescribed sites for laundries.
At the request of the chairman lie had
prepared an amendment to ihe laundry I'W.iw adding thosie two sites —
the old laundry siteand theMcCarty
garage site, li that amendment wus
tgreed toil would be lawful lo e ub
un lie s ..n those sites. If .'act
■i.i agreeable to all parties ii woul t
shorten discussion. He understood Mr
Coy intended lo establish a laundry, al-
(he old laundry violaica th;'
bylaw-', those concerned would like
i! included under the terms
of the bylaw. If ihe amen linen', outlined   suited -.11   parries it   would   prob-
ubly straighti n matters out.
Mr. Gillan—1 have-a communication
hi  i egar I to this question.
The Mayor—There are three.
The cl"ik read the letter, previously
published, from the Revelstoke General Agencies, asking that ihe bylaw be
amended to include lots on Block U!)
a- available for laundry siies. The
cc i aid —"It i- ihe Intention to
build a steam laundry on this site.''
The second letter Was from Mr. Barraciough, and Said it Wa- with great
.surprise he had noticed in t lie Mail-
.that the laundry site on block
1)9 was not included in the district set,
aside for laundries by the bylaw, when
he ptireha-'ed that site he understood
i was no prescribed, and he asked the
council to amend the bylaw a Cording-
ly as "otherwise it would woik great
hardship" on him.
The   third  eommuuii-atiou  was  read
in   the following  term-:
It has been brought lo our noiicti
ihii an application is to he made to
you for arepeal of the bylaw of this
eity regarding the regulation and sit-
uiiiion of th'- laundries in this city and
we as property owners and ratepayers
of ihi-city wish to enter out objeotion
10 any alteration ot the rfume, unless
ii Ik made •..-> apply without any restriction! to all laundries. We wish lo
point out that other laundries Im.
been started in this city contrary lo
the term-of the bylaw and also point
out that during a former sdmlnistra •
tion of the city affairs an application
was made by Mar Kulie for a permit
to build a suitable building and comply with all the sunitary requirements
and to build on his own property, and
that his application for that purpose
was refused. We I rust tlmt you will
take this under advisement at any
merting when any amendment or repeal of the bylaw is to be considered by
you.
There Were -c\cti signatures of Chin-
.   •■   residents.
Mr. Coy appeared to support a     re"
' quest to include the    McCarty garage
site in  the prescribed  laundry sites.
Mr.   BriggB appeared  on behalf of Mr
I Sibbald of the Revclstoke General Ag-
i
en let
1    Mr   tlillmi appeared on   behalf    of
.Chinese   ohirc tors   to   alteration   of   the
, bylnw.
The Mayor—There are two applications for amendment of the bylaw.
Aid. McKinnon—The gist of this objection l- against all extension of the
bylaw for steam laundries; they say it
should be for all laundries'.
Mr.  Gilfan said he would like to say
a lew   words in  connection  with      ttiis
matter.   There wa-'u bylaw which had
hetu in force for years, regarding lauu
dries,  restricting certain areas   where
laundries could be established.     Some
moor  i In to  ycacs  afeo an  applhaiiou
was made lor permission  lo build     u
laundry as stated in the letter.     He be
lleved Aid.  Burbot' an I Aid. McSorley
weie  members   of tue council  ut  thai
time.   That  applicant   wished  to   put
up a laundry,  with all sanitary     arrangements and properly connected up.
ihat applicant  was uosolutely refused
becuuse the    council  said they    would
noi extend the bylaw in anyway shape
or form outs' i    the limits fixed by the
bylaw.    Well  and  good.   Thai  laundry
was  not started.    .Now   lliey  had      on
the other hand,    several   applications
which wanted lo extend the limits.Now
people wanted to put u laundry In any
uheie.anl   they   had a   laundry   in      a
cigar store they had the German hand
laundry, a   nigger  laundry,  a  laundry
in the  Tapping    block,   and   laundries
everywhere, whether they were running
oil license or not.   li they were runn -
Ing on  license   he  thought it   was   up
to the city clerk, or whoever had charge, to   give an  explanation   how   these
laundries  were allowed to  run.     Then
they found a man installing machinery

The steady Increase in the production
c.f wheat in Canada points to the fact
th.it the tini'- i- fust approaching when
the production of our country will lie
■ very important lac tor in deciding the
world's grain price-- and regulating the
same. The Winnipeg Commercial
point* out that in round numbers, the
. wheal crop of Western Canada thi-
y, ,i i 200,000,000 bushels, and the
total of the f. nii- leading prains namely,   wheat,  .i.iis.  barley  and flax,     is
150, ,000  bushels,   his only a      iew
-    ■   wheat   crop
Suskatche Alber-
la was le*. OH eU; in
go very     far
, •     when the total
■ be ■- i-r.iv lin-cs.
was less than LOO.OOO.OOO bushels. Students or observers of condlldons in ibis I
iciiintn believe that the agricultural
development In the coming years will
In- fully a- rapid as In the p.-isi. Judging from ihe rush .if immigration mil
th- immense area siill uncultivated
west ui the grout lnl.es. it is only a mat'
tor of a brief period until the apgiv -
gate of grain '-nips in one season in
ihe three prairie provinces will reach
1,000,000,000 nushels.   li is not     very
•hc.it of   half a   billion   today.       In       a
mere handful ni years, Immigration to
Western Canada has increased from
100,000 a year to well on towards half
a million, AI this rate of increase the
material I'm- developing Ibe agricultural area is practically ensured. Today
-u.-li countries as the United States
Mi'I HiHsia are very great (actors in
the wheal supply oi ilu- world, and
Canada's production is also to be reck
oiied wiih to a considerable extent. But
one does not need to he over optimistic to believe that the time is coming,
when Canada as a source ol food sup-
ply will be very near the top of the list
of the  largest   bread  stuff producers.

jTiTFtrJiTdRY      FOR    DINING   ~/f.     (,R_CWS
A citizen of the world wishing to spend a holiday at
3anff, in the heart of the Western Canadian Rockies or to
make a bui ncss journey along the lines of the Canadian
Pacific Railway rents his sleeping car berth, boards the train,
lives ar.1 i its in luxurious surroundings while being whirled
across the i n( and has little idea of the vastness of the
enterprise i pon which ho bestows his patronage nor of the
tremendous ysl which must be maintained in order that
he and (tiers, likewise-minded, may travel in such safety,
comfort and luxury.
K.i instance he foes to bed and does not know that an
mmy cf men four thousand sttong is employed by that
Dining and Sleeping Car Department. He is not awaie that
the sam: ct npi uld, within five days, transpe.it an army
'I thirty t ousand people from Vancouver to Halifax, giving
each a sli ing berth and supplying ninety thousand meals
:i day, or practically half a million on the five day journey
the rentinent. At.i'.n, Ice Joe; not realize that, if the
and sleeping ears of the Canadian Pacific Railway
.vere made up into a single train with a locomotive stationed
at intervals ten coaches apart, that that train would be
miles leng. To man this city on wheels would
require an anry of three thousand dining and sleeping car
ittendants with several hundred additional men at terminals
lo handle supplies for them. This is exclusive of the thousand men who would be operating the train in the capaci'y
of biakemen, conductors, liremen and engineers, a total
:iboard in all of 34,030 people.
TAKING CARE OF THE PUBLIC
It would take a great deal of space to tell how the
Canadian Pacific Railway takes care of that public which
patronizes its lines and how also it takes care of those
employees whose duty t is to minister to the comfort of that
public. Yet the C. P. R, has tnken many steps in that direction and it is safe to say that in a dozen particulars it
stands ahead of any road on the continent when it comes to
Heating its dining and sleeping car employees humanely and
sanely. These nun aic as desirable a class of public servant
as can be fjund in any privat house from the point oi view
of efficiency, personal cleanliness and freedom from dangei
nf spreading disease. The company is as considerate of its
r„en as it is of the general public, and it is fully aware that
such a couise is simple "good business."
Certainly the most colossal task that presents itsel!
to the C. P. H. is that of provisioning its dining cars to
feed the 1 ungry multitudes who cross their thresholds each
meal bout. It is estimated that in the summer season the
C, P. R. serves on an average twenty thousand meals a day
an its cars. For many years the company has been grappling with the problem of supplying this enormous demand
.n a way tc.it would insure to the general public absolutely
clean and perfectly wholesome meals and only now has the
company come to believe that it has the situation completely in band.
t> The first probl?m that presented itself was to have
secure a really assured and permanent source of supply. To
nttain this and, incidentally, to show farmers in various districts the possibilities of their lands when scientifically
worked, demonstration farms were started throughout the
Dominion. These supply absolutely fresh provisions to the
chain of cemmissiary stores stretching .cross the continent
and give the Canadian Pacific Railway the assurance of a
permanent supply at cost prices. In this an absolutely radical
departure was made in that the C. P. R. actually owns
and operates the farms which supply it with provisions.
The advantage of this is not far to seek. Fresh milk
and cream will soon be secured in whatever quantities are
desired. A sufficiently large number of poultry can be kept
to supply all requirements for table fowl and eggs. To insure freshness in the eggs used on dining cars the product is
gathered from the nest (all eggs are non-fertile by the way)
stamped with the date, and then packed in cartons and
sealed for delivery to commissary stores. Milk and cream
aie not handled In bulk. After being thoroughly pasteurized
the produi ts arc placed in sealed bottles and these are
opened in Ire presence of the passengei with the day and
date of milking rlghl on the bottle, Slmilai care la taken
lo inuuie absolute cleanlines In all othei deiuonstiation
(arm prodUl I  , •
Fruits aim vegetables form a inrgc Item on dining cm
menu. Tbr Canadian Pacific Railway imports these from all
parts of tl" world and offers them on Its tables before Lhey
are available elsewhere .-.nil then, who the Canadian pro-
lucts arc read) the prefetence Is given thf.m In fact lit
company t|   ilaliics In thi   famous nm'.  and vegetables ol
British  Columbia and conttacl    foi   J   pi rl cts foi   the

service for nil western lines "ii" ycai In advance,   The quality
of these fruits, such as apples, plums, cherries, psars,   ind
vegetables,  such  as celery  and  potatoes now   stands highest

INTERIOR    OF   UlNINU   CAR
ITS FIRST  CARE
One of  the first  cares  of  the  Canadian  Pacific  Railway
e thai • employeei  . tly healthy and
lean and to this end it has beer, deemed expedient to estia-
: sh  a  clam  if  homes  for  the dming ami  sleeping car men
■.,•  i     entin    ontlneat.   The C. P, R. is the only railroad
orporat '   ■ <'■   provide'   th      i .       of   employees

uge   terminali   such   as   Toronto,   Winnipeg,   Moose   Jaw,
v   and   Van.inner   these  din-.ng   car  and   sleeping" car
I by the company.    In establishing  this
the   management   had   oni    main   idea   in   view.    It
■ ould be able (o give the gencial public the assurance that
..very  employee lad  a  physique  free  from  disease,  because
ill  art   subjected  to a  periodic  medical  examination, and  it
■ •ould  itself  then  be in  a  position  to assume responsibility
:or   the  cleanlini      I Under   the   system   that
prevails  on the C. P.  R.  it  is impossible for a dining or
to go out  on a run, as it is called,
without   first   having   taken   a   bath   and  gotten   bis  clothe*
rwly cleaued ar.d pressed, nee of any cost to the employe*.
Noi   is  the Canadian  Pacific  Railway  inspired by solelv
a this work.   The company is not a "mil.
