House on Second Street West
Stripped of furniture
One of the moat darine robberioH
perpetrated in the city look place thia
week when tbe furniture and carpets
were stolen Irom the house recently
occupied by Mr. XV. H. Pratt, and
owned by Mr I. K. Taylor. Mr. Pratl
had movtd to the hoiiHe recentlv oceu-
pied by Mr. E. A. Bradley, and Mr.
Gordon, Government Agent, bail leased
the house, which waa handsomely fur-
ni*hed. Mr. tiordon waB having the
bouse li.xed up and had not yet moved
into it. On Wednesday it was discovered that the robbery had been
committed and it, is believed it was
done on Sunday nigbt last.
Borne ol lhe lurniture was so bulky
and heavy it could unly have been
removed by a vehicle, showing the
boldness ol the thieves. Wbile this is
not tlie first time an unoccupied house
has beeu robbud ol its furniture in
Revelstoke it is the lirst time iu which
a theft of the kind has been committed
in such a thorough and daring manner
We have known unoccupied lioiiBes in
the east end robbed, the furniture and
stoves being even re painted before
removal so as to make detection and
identilicatipn dillicult. It is up to
tbe police 11 spare no i IV irt to catch
these thievi s and have such an example made of them tbat Revelstoke will
be no more troubled with robbers of
unoccupied houses. It is rather alarming to lind out there are such darinu
thieves in tbe city and it is essential
they be run to earth eurely and
The value of the furniture stolen
amounted to $300.
Twenty-one leading American railroads operating 96,000 miles of track,
or over a third of the mileage ol the
country paid in the way ol claims for
injuries done to persons or property
laBt year, $56,000,000. In one decade
the reverue of the twenty-one railroads designated increased 130 per
cent. During tbe same period tbe
sum paid lor property damage increased 437 per cent., while the
amount paid on account of injuries to
persons rose 254 per cent. Damages
and injuries cost American railroads
last year over 2J per cent, of their
gross earnings. English roads paid
but a quarter of Shut amount.
The Canadian Western railway has
completed the location of tbe line
from Calgary to Montana and will let
contracts for the construction of
grade within a few days.
At Cieston Sir Thomas Shaughnessy
is reported to have corroborated previous reports regarding the making ol
tbe Crow's Xest PaBS line the main
line of the C P R. and stated that thia
would take place just as Boon aa the
necessary arrangements can be completed.
Higher rates are now being asked
for money at the principal centres
abroad and the advance in the ollicial
discount at Berlin suggests that
similar action may be taken at Loudon
aod Paris before long.
Ely Central and Kerr Lake were
the conspicuously strong features of
the New Vork Curb market last week.
It is ninlfd Kerr Lake has ample

plane hat is somewhat nl this order'
Another novelty is the Oooke hat, a
small draped turban with white
mount un aido, which ia a perfect
craze in New York al the present
time. Velvet, moire, ottoman silk
and beaver are the lending millinery
fabrics, and one ol the newest, ideas is
to introduce the metallic etVeots, gold
and silver tissue, and shut tissues of
gold and black. These are combined
with fur most successfully and will
be seen a great deal later in the season on the few turbans. Henry VIII
styles arc really rich in fur etfeots,
The Cossack sud llumiir variety are
strong as are also the low Arabian
draped turbans. Wings and empte
feathers have the greatest prestige
unless one excepts ostrich, which is
entirely in a class by ilsolf. The
Robin Hood hat has turned up brim
back and sides, trimmed in wings, as a
strie'ly tailored or suit hat. The
Amici model, in velvet aud (ur, is one
of the Russian turbans. We shall see
many ol these this winter, Taken all
through, hats are not quite as extreme
and more becoming to llie majority of
faces than those ol the past season.
Power and Light Direct From
the Sun
Mr, George H. Cove, of Soinerville,
Mass., has a solar thermo-battery
which is claimed to produce enough
current in ten hours' sunlight to
supply thirty tungsten lamps lor
threedaya. The apparatus consists of
a frame of violet glass, like a large
window below which a number of
metallic plugs are set in an insulating material. One eud of each ping
is constantly exposed to the sun while
the other is shaded and cool, and the
rays permitted to pass by the violet
glasB set up a reaction in the special
alloy used, causing a constant fl w of
current to the storage batteries.—

The Millinery Opening
Thursday was the day of tbe [all

wet; yet a large number of ladies
turned out to see the latest styles and

tbe supervision ol Miss McKenuy, had
a line display. The prominent new
colors of this aeasun in thia linn's
ihowrooma were wisteria, raisin
brown, tana, taupe shades ol grey and
and all shades of green. The shapes
arc very large, draped hats witli tan
crowns being tbe favorites In trimmings, wings ami leathers are largely
in uae. A large black hat with plumes
is one ol the new things lor this
winter. A new feature in this fall's
millinery is moire silk bound with
velvet facinga. Lots of jet ia used in
the form of buckles and piua. Messrs.
Reid & Young report an excellent

Alex. McGregor Has Arm Broken
and Spine Injured
Alex. McGregor, the well-known 0.
P. R. bridge foreman, was badly injured on Wednesday alternoon by
falling from the roof of the 0. P. It.
roundhouse at Revelstoke. In tbo
full he had an arm broken and sustained concussion of tbe spine which
resulted in paralysis.
He was conveyed to the hospital,
and Dr. Hamilton, who al tended him,
expresses hope of bis recovery as he
could Iiud no displacement. Much
sympathy is felt with the family in
their misfortune, this accident to Alex
McGregor following as it does so
closely on the recent death ol his
brother Duncan.
A Discreditable Performance
The entertainment announced at
the Opera House on Wednesday evening by the Warde Karniim Company
waB a discreditable atl'air. It was after
nine o'clock belore the curtain rang
up, and in lhe meantime tho audience
had become impatient and the rowdy
element was in evidence,
Mias Wardc is a good reciter but the
irritated audience had no appreciation
Ior the items she contributed. Tbe
piano was poorly handled. Joe Webb,
coster comedian, who might reasonably have been expected to make a
hit, brought about the reverse, and on
his second appearance was interrupted
and a large part ol the audience here
lelt the hall in digust.
Paul Parker, the director, is a Iair
singer, but a failure at telling stories,
The entertainment ended in a generally hostile demonstration on the
part ol the audience.

Asked about, the prospectB of opening more branches of Molsons Bank,
Mr. Elliott, the general manager, replied he had received very many
urgent requests to do bo in some of
the western towns, but so far there
had been no arrangements made. "In
the near future we may do so," said
Mr. Elliott, "but uot just now."
On his return easi 1). R. Wilkie,
president and general manager of the
Imperial Bank of Canada, said that
prospects were never better, that
without exaggeration they could be
rfeeerihed as magnificent. He declared the Imperial Bank will do its
utmost to keep pace with the rapid
progress ot the west. Four large and
imposing buildings are to be erected
at Prince Albert, Wetaskiwin, Alberl a,
Regina, Cranbrook and others are
contemplated. When the additional
branches are to be built will be decided on Mr. Wilkie'B return to Toronto.

Leckie's New Shoe Catalogue
You ought to send and get it. We
have just received n copy and examined it carefully. Just aa a catalog-

printing vou ought lo see it, to realize
what can be done at the Pacific coast.
As a superior product of Pacific const
craftsmanship, it evidently embodies
the spirit of its publishers, thej. ___.,_.
kie Co. Ltd., of vanoouver.
The quality of their catalog is a good
standard by which to judge of lhe
quality of ihe boots and shoes they
make for British Columbia wearers.
The boots are shown in the natural
colors, und are described in detail.
Nothing of practical interest—nothing
that will be useful iu buying shoes has
been omitted from the information
which tbis fine catalog contains.
Theie are three distinct features
aboul it. Tbe first important one Is
thut it shows the points of the shoe.
It is an education in this line, of unusual interest for tbe buyer of shoes.
ll is well to kuun what to look for
when buying shoes. You will understand it better after you examine ibis
Then in the second place, it tells you
the retail prices of Leckie shoes. You
can decide ou the shoe you want from
the catalog and know exactly what it
will cost,
In the third place it tells you where
you can get Leckie shoes. It gives
the names of all the dealers who handle this celebrated line.

Tiie occurrence ol typhoid at

tbe attention of tbe Department to

Complaints are made to us of the
''rustling" of camps and cabins on
the Big Bend trail. This kind of
thing is contrary to tbe square,
generous spirit that has hitherto
been the unwritten law of tlie miners and prospectors of the country
antl it would be well if the newcomers who bave set themselves out
to break the grand old traditions
of the miner's camp of the great
west were taught they will not be
permitted to do so with impunity.
Tbe custom has been to leave bedding and camp open to all who
wished to use tbem, but to leave
there tho property found in the
camp and use only what is required
of tlie grub. The custom has been
a blessing and help in need to
many a man. The thieves who
sleal the property of others they
find in these out-of-the-way trails
and camps will meet with no mercy
from the courts and tbe public if it
should become necessary to go alter
and prosecute them in order lo stop
the practise complained of.
The Kootenay country is one of
the richest countries in the world
in silver, lead and zinc. The out
look for the mining of these metals
was never better. The market for
silver is particularly bright. When
Lord Morley was asked last February what would lie done if the
value of silver rose above 43d. per
ounce, tbat is, to a point at which
the rupee would be of more value
in the melting pot than as a current coin, the answer from the
Secretary of State wns prompt anil
decisive : "We Bhall be quite
ready to cross lhe bridge when we
cume to it. Nothing would, a- a
matter of fact, suit India belter
than a rise in silver, if it went to
the intrinsic value of tlie rupee
(43d. per ounce or over we -lnuiM
raise the issue price of tbe rupee to
one-aud-six, and would ol course,
retain our rupee currency.''
The Mining and St ientific Press
points out that it -uch i pledge as
that had been given years ago it
might have prevented tbe at
France and the United Statea
which hf.ve had something to do
with tbe fall in tiie white metal.
But there ia an enormoua and
growing demand for the Indian
rupee in Africa, and the abandonment uf any Berious design b;
India to introduce gold i- a medium
of circulation—it was tried and
failed miserably—ia a further assurance that the call fur silver
ini reases.
: hen we ha i'e the argu men I ol
the bimetallism which the gold bugs
have never been able to refute, lhal
tbe adoption of a bimetallic standard uf ' 'linage that i.- two metals,
silver nntl gold in ratio of value
would tin much to stop the financial panics, to even prices, and to
-npply enough basis money to do
the world's work. The leading
economists, as Jevons, Walker.
Fawcett, Frewen, Balfour, Chapman, who have closely studied the
problem, support the bimetallic
movement as undoubtedly sound
and it iH one that is of vital interest
to the mining Interests oi Kootenay,
The principle of municipal ownership lias been n  blessing to Rev

population of the town. It. bus
bad to maintain two separate lire
departments, The school system
is Becond to none in the province.
Parks have been acquired und improved. The city has lieen generously lighted and public ind charitable institutions have lieen aided
to an extent that few cities have
been able to concede. Electric
light rates have been substantially
reduced. These achievements could
not have been possible but for tbe
municipal ownership and operation
of the water and light services.
The city council also very properly
aims at operating in connection
with tbe light system a power service that shall be second to none.
The value of a lirst-class municipal power service to a city is shown
by the results in (!lasgow,Scotland,
of which the Scientific American
"The city of (ilasgovv, Scotland,
whose record for an c-flicient and
economical municipal tramway
system is well known, has also a
remarkably well-conducted electric
light and power supply department,
according to ligures recently received for the past year's working.
In spite of a decrease in income of
$38,000, due to reduced charges
for current, increasing use of economical metallic filament lamp,
and general trade depression, an
actual increase in available protit
balance of $1-1,000 has been made.
The aggregate horse-power sold is
29,500 an increase of 6,000 over
the previous year, and 1,232 new
consumers bave lieen added.
ISighteen million units out of
thirty three sold were for power
purposes bringing in on the average 1 _• cents per unit."
This Bhowa tlie  extent  to which
municipal ownership of  power can j
be u-eil lo develop   the   industrial
resources of a city.
The results in Kevelstoke, with
all' the drawl.neks experienced,
bave shown the wisdom of the action of the city council who. iluriiiL'

< hal. ol the Municipal Council,
Lighthouse, the New Process
The increase in population iu western
Canada is malting notable changes in
the industrial situation. It is not so
very long ago lhat every necessity and
every luxury had to lie imported from
eastern Canada or the I'nited States.
Now, instead "f importing Hour ami
cereal foods (or instance, we are shipping tlieni to the ends of the world. To
a large extent each day we arc becoming
self-supporting and self-contained, pro-
duciiig in uur own territory tbe requirements of our daily life,
It is in the early stages of industrial
awakenings that the ureal inauufaclur-
irg concerns of lhe future are built'
They are brought inl" being by the
demand right al home, ami they grow
and expand with ihe progress of the
Right here il i-- instructive ami interesting to notice that liritish Columbia
alone uses over a million dollars worth
of soaps and washing compounds annually. Must appropriate ii is. therefore,
thai a home industry should arise in re-
spouse to this demand, and most happy-
it is thai ihis new industry should
be the exclusive possessors of new and
advanced methods of soap manufacture.
The Western Soap Co have heen manufacturing Lighthouse Soap in Vancouver
for several months, Lighthouse Soap is
a new soap. It is a vegetable soap, the
basis being the finest imported cocoanut
oil, a material which, by most other
manufacturers, is used only for toilet
soaps. Il is winning a place as the
aristocrat of laundry soaps. The new-
process of manufacture, which is exclusive witb the company, enables the use
of tliese expensive materials without unduly enhancing the cost.
So rapidly lias the demand for lighthouse Soap increased, that the company
arc compelled to enlarge their plant.
The demand at present in sight is about
three times the capacity of the factory.
Tbey therefore propose to erect a new,
thoroughly modern plant with a floor
space of 15,000 square feet, and equipped with the most approved  machinery.
This is the reason tbat investors are
being given the opportunity to acquire
an interest in this essentially western
and thoroughly stable enterprise. The
new company, which has lieen organized
to carry forward the development, is
capitalized at _-__5o.oiin.on, divided into
250,000 shares at a par value of $1.00
eacb. Investors now have the opportunity of yetting some of the first issue
of 100,000 shares at par. It is equally
an opportunity for the small and the
large iuvestor. Seeing wbat has come
out of small beginnings in this industry
in the instances as such firms as Pears',
Ivory, Sunlight anil others, it requires
no stretch of llie imagination to see the
day when Lighthouse shall have achieved the distinction its merit warrants.
Prospectuses and full information maybe obtained from J. A. Kenning, Fiscal
Agent, 710 Hastings street. The director- and officers of the company ore well-
known Vancouver men of long experience iu this business. Tbey have studied
and experimented long and carefully,
and we find tbem able to give accurate
i".■; satisfying explanations of every detail    : their business.

lhe World's Greatest Bridge
line of the great undertakings of the
Dominion Department of Railways is
the re-construction of the Quebec
Bridge! This is tbe greatest project of
its kind in the world. The bridge over
the Forth is nearly as long in its spans,
but it is merely a single track railway
bridge, while the proposed Quebec
structure will combine railway, street
railway, vehicle and foot traffic. Tbis
bridge will form part of tbe great Transcontinental Bailway which will connect
the Atlantic with the I'acilic upon Canadian territory and over which the produce of the West will pass through to
Canadian ports nu both the Atlantic and
ilu- Pacific upon Canadian territory,
completing another link lo bind the empire together.

A deputation composed of Robert
Irving, Louis Pratt and J.A. Whittier,
ol Nelson, waited on Hon. W. Templeman, making representations in favor
ot federal aid to the zinc industry so
as to place the business oo a sound
commercial basis. It was suggested
that testing zinc ores under government auspices might solve the question in the best manner. Mr. Templeman promised to confer with his
colleagues on the question.
The lowest cost oopper producing
mine in the world to-day is Nevada
Consolidated, which during the quarter ended June 30 last produced line
copper at a cost of 0.75 cents per
pound, beating the record o( Utah
copper by slightly better than two
cents per pound. For the current
quarter Nevada Coneoiidated will very
much better the records made during
the previous quarter and will very
likely show a production of fine copper aggregating 15,000,000 pounds at a
cost around five cents per pound,
which will be tbe lowest cost record
known to the history of copper mining.

Revelstoke Potatoes Second to
None in the Province
Revelstoke is achieving a high reputation as a producer of potatoes, and people who know what they are talking
about declare that Revelstoke potatoes
are of better quality than Asbcrofts,
which hold the banner name among 11.
L". potates. This is something of which
our fanners may well lie proud, Slid il
would he well if more attention is given
to growing potatoes in this district. As
the land is cleared and cultivated there
is no better way in which it ean be (ire-
pared for iruii growing than by planting
it to potatoes, The crop enn usually be
relied on n, n producer and on an average it brings a good price.
F. McCarty raised aboul SO un,- oi potatoes this season. ('.. I,atomic was also a considerable grower, and most of
lhe ranchers had from one to three ur
four acres under this crop tbis season.
Ralph Smith's Strong Views on
the Question
Speaking nl tht- coast, Ralph Smith,
M. l\, said lhat in discussing the (jiies-
tion with men <>f all lines of thought
from the Old Country lie had come to
the conclusion that there had arisen a
a crisis in England, and it was necessary
for the colonial interests lo make themselves fell. lli> natural tendency was
opposed to militarism, but now he believed there was a crisis. .Men like Sir
Ivi ward (Irey ami others of tin- liberal
party who could not be easily led astray
by a scare had expressed themselves on
this subject, and he was now read} lo
support any plan for naval defence.
Tbe most important duty of Canadians
was lo Imild up this jjre.it country, hut
as reasonable men they wanted to know
that when built up they would In- in a
position to hold it.

Lord Charles BeresTord Speaks
on labor
Speaking ut Toronto oil Labor Day,
Lord Charles Beresford said thai lo the
organizations of labor they owed, not
only in the old country and Canada, bin
in all countries, au immense debt of
gratitude, because it was upon those who
labored that the progress of a country-
depended There bad been efforts in
lhe oltl country and in other countries to
divorce capital from labor, ll wae absolutely impossible. Labor could not gel
on without capita! and capital could noi
get ou withoul labor. lie was old
enough to remember when those who
labored did not get their (air share of remuneration, bin lhe Trades Unions had
altered linn.
A   l-'AIK    SM A Kl     I Ilk    I,AllOU,
There   was   a   lelldelie\    lUUOIIg    some
people lo think lhal the Hades unions in
their   power    llliglll    Want    I"    net    mole
than capital could afford,     lb- did   mil
believe thai lhal would be the ease, lie
believed that those who worked and who
were now educated recognised that capital must have a fair share oi remuneration, otherwise il would not be invested,
and that those who labored must have
their fair proportion of reward. In the
industrial sphere three things were absolutely necessary; there was capital to
start with; there was lhe brain power of
the inventor, and then there was labor.
His hope for the old country was thai
they would never have any real stress or
strain between capital and labor. He
did not believe they would.
He believed that the workingineii had
a perfect right to strike if liny thought
necessary, but in many eases those strikes
would never have occurred if the employers and managers had faced lhe men
and had it out fair and Square, getting
to know what they wauled, what the
difficulty was, and endeavoring to put it
right. Lord Charles added thai in the
navy when ihere was any sign of irritation the captain usually called ihe men
together and enquired into tlieir grievances face to face Strikes were ven
serious mailers for all who struck, aud
more than serious for the women and

Winter Egg Production-Some
Useful Hints
M A, Jull, the expert recently appointed by the provincial government, read
an instructive paper on "Winter Egg
Production," as follows:
My impressions of this country are
gradually becoming stronger, aud the
more I set- of the province tin- more
readily 1 realize ils possibijittes; Tin-
outlook for all agricultural industries is
The poultry industry is practically in
ils infaucv, bul I am ven pleased lo
notice tlie interest nnd enthusiasm of the
poultry in en through the province. I'm
pie arc thinking, and generally when
the practical men who are engaged iu
the business g"et down to work, some
thing'definite ami progressive will be
accomplished. Elecausc of natural circumstances, iin- outlook is good. This
is a young and growing countn , it is a
wealthy country, abounding in natural
resources. It is possessed of a class of
people who are alive lo their possibilities, and this is one of the surest signs
of success.
In Uritish Uolnmbia the poultry industry was lirst recognized as au industry in 1900: In 1901, Lin- province produced $426;629 worth of eggs, and $209,-
717 worth of other produce. At present,
we import annually J500.000 worth of
poultry products from the I'tiitcd States,
and al)out $1,5000,000 worth of poultry
products, besides $720,00() worth of eggs
from the east.    Instead of   sending  oui
of the province auuualh  over $Z, 1,000
we should be exporting the produce and
importing the cash This in a vital
Tlie average number of poultry per
farm in British Columbia iu 190J was
ahout fortj -three. i hir object should
not only In- to increase thenuniher, even
though in a small way, hut more especially to improve ihe laying quality.
Eggs are what we are after,' since the
production of eggs i* the most profitable
business iu the whole industry.
There are certainly some breeds of
poultry that are not well-adapted to this
country. Willi the production of "eggs
as the essential feature, and considering
the climatic conditions, lhe .Mediterranean and American classes should prove
most satisfactory. The poiiHrwneu in
this province should specialize. Do not
choose the breed you fancy, but choose
the breed adapted" to your locality, and
make a success of that breed. There are
good aud poor stranis in every breed,
aud good and poor individuals iu every
strain. The best onlv should be selected.

Wkelker You Have
Here are the Facts, we shall tell them to you as briefly as possible •
Lighthouse Soap has been manufactured in Vancouver for several months. Lighthouse Soap is a
first-class laundry soap, a superior laundry soap manufactured by a new process. The manufacture has l
been wonderfully successful. The Company has been able to supply only part of the demand which has
arisen, so quickly has the new soap won its way to popularity. The Company must increase their output, the demand must be met, so the investors are given an opportunity to participate in the profit of
supplying this demand. A new, three-story factory, with 15000 feet of floor space, is to be erected
This is to be equiped with all the best modern machinery for the manufacture of soap most economically
and profitably. The new process, controlled exclusively by this company, enable it to manufacture soap
more cheaply than it has ever been manufactured before. The process is secret. Its control rests entirely with this company. The company is started on the highroad to success, with a present demand
for its product far greater than it can fill, with a process which it controls exclusively, a process which
enables it to cheaply manufacture a superior soap. Based on the business already done, based on the
demand which already exists, to say nothing of what it will develop, a return of 20 per cent, on the investment is an exceedingly conservative estimate.
Simply ask us to show you the profits
We shall be glad to place all information at your disposal, knowing that the more you examine into it, tho better you will like it An investment
in this sound enterprise combines the maximum of safety with the certainty of large profits. More than this, you share in an enterprise that has almost
unlimited possibilities for development. Think of Pears', Ivory, Sunlight, great firms whose stories of success read almost like fairy talcs Then remember
the opportunity which lies right at your door, the opportunity you are reading about now. Open to all. an opportunity ior both the small and large investor. Much of the capital has already been subscribed. We are offering to the public out of a total capital of 250 000 shares 100,000 shaves at the
par value of $1.00 each. Not less than 50 shares will be sold to any individual and not more than 3000 The terms of payment are 25 per cent on
application, 25 per cent, on allotment, and the balance in calls of not more than 25 percent, at any one time. Applications tor stock should be accompanied by certified
check, payable to the order of the company.   Send for prospectus and full particulars today.   You want to know and we want to tell yon about this opportunity.
