Ex-Sergeant C. G. Wheeler came up

TURF ASSOCIATION
Proposal to Form Agricultural
Society in Revelstoke
A meeting ol the stock holders ol the
Kevelstoke Turl Association was held
on Thursday to discuss the advisability ol reorganizing the T rf Club
and lorn.ing a Turf and Agricultural
Association.
A. Mcltae, as president, took tbe
chuir and wiled n representative meeting to order. The Inlnnce *heet I- r
the year \v>.s rend showing liabilii.es
of $1,937 75, and outstanding c Hoc
tions to the nmotint of $1,031 50. Tl.e
chairman pointed out that fur assets
tbe nsH.ici.itii.u hud thi) grounds and
track in good shape, with stables
stands, etc., moreover there were quite
a few collections besides those men
tinned which would mako matters
eve... He regretted that tl.e association had f .Hen down over the contract
for levelling the centre of the traok
As regards the change of name to that
of an Agricultural Society he Baid that
tbe feeling of the people towards the
Turf Club waa none of the be-t, why,
lie d>d not know, and he thought a
change ol title, to embrace general
agriculture, fur fruit exhibits, etc.,
and athletic sports would satisfy tlie
stock holders better. He said that the
movement would be popular and
since other cities had an annual fair
there was no reason why Revelstoke
should not. The Turl Club bave a
five years' lease of the grounds and
track with option of extension a..d
with the institution of a fair, horse
racing athletic sports, ball games, as
well :.s exhibits of the pr ducts ni.d
industries of thedistr cl could be he.d
E. A. Haggen said that the day had
come when an agricultural society
was necessary in Revelst ke.
E. A. Bradley made the statement
that there was not enough produce in
the district lor any exhibit, that be
didn't tee why tho turl asiociation
Bhould wish to change its name to
suit people who had hot helped it out.
He Baid that by having an agricultural Society it meant, saddling the association with more expense, moreover
better railroad rates could be got for
horses under the present system.
A. McRae laid that better rates
could be obtained for fairs than for
race meetings. A large number of
citizens held Btock and he thought
that by forming an agricultural society tbe public would support it better
H. A. Brown agreed that a change
of name would help matters provided
that the publio would support the
scheme and help in the erection of
buildings.
W. Cowan said that tbe plan wss a
good ons, sines s fair i would help to
advertise, thr diatrict and encourage
fruit growing and agriculture gener
ally, besides dowers and other things,
Aller further discussion it was
moved H. A. Brown and seconded J
Laughtnn, that the meeting take steps
to changs the name of the Revelstoke
Turf Assoziation to the Kevelstoke
Agricultural Association. Carried,
with one dissentient voice.
As a special resolution, it was moved
H. A. Brown, seconded J. Laugbton,
thut notice of this motion be sentto
every member of the association and
also a notice calling an extraordinary
meeting on Thursday, Dec Illll. at 3
p.m , at the Cowan Block,   Ca.ried.
The meeting then terminated.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING.
Tbe Maii.-Heralu has always advocated the patronage and upbuilding
of local industries and we cannot impress this practice more strongly on
our readers than at the present season
ol the year. We ask that all loyal
hear.ed citizens visit our local stores
to select their presents lor Christmas.
The- merchants have made early
preparations tbis year and the people
Bhould take advantage of this and
make it a puint to get in at once.which
in many cases will secure lor them
better value and wider selection. We
are safe in siying that in lew cities are
the merchants more wide awake or
up-to-date than in Revelstoke, and
fewei still study the wants aud requirements ol their customers better than
our local stores. As years goon the
popular taste ditters and novelties ol
every conceivable form are eagerly
searched lor as Christmas gilts. To
cope with this, the slores have provided ven- thorough- for the Christmas
shopping. Well assorted stocks, tastefully arranged and displayed are now
to be seen on every side and in every
branch ol trade. There are gilts
suitable ior young and old, and within
reach ol even the most modest purse.
The selection and variety will be
lound to suit even the most fnstidious
and in no previous year has the
season's display demonstrated the fact
that shopping in all its branches can
lie done right here, as well and even
Utter than in large huiiees in other
parte of Canada. By making purchases early the rush of shopping iu a
hurry on the last day will be eliminated and the merchants and their
assistants will be considerably relievid
il thi; is done, A thoughtful public
can do much to lighten tlie load ol
tie assistants.
This years Christmas trade has
every indication ol being unustinlly
large iu spite ol the liuancial crisis,
which, uow happily ea.-ing up, lies
caused eutisiderable disquietude. Revelstoke has enjoyed a protperoui year
and has made large strides in general
progress and development, Our
advertisements will show thnt tl.e
merchants have prepared lur n heavy
Christmas trade and every satisfaction
is guaranteed to customers who will
find their every want and request
fulfilled. Outlying sections will do
well to write Ior prices and lists of
goods from the city merchants, who

A PROFITABLE CHANGE
The advisability of transforming tl.e
Turf Association into an Agricultural
Association is at present exercising
the minds of the members ol the
former. The Turl Association is an
incorporated company under Ihe companies act, the stock being held by
many citizens ol Revelstoke. Since
the organization of the Association
the majority of stock holders have
dropped all interest iu it, and it lias
been lelt to a certain few, who lind
that the fact of arranging race meetings not only fulfills the object for
which the association was really
formed hut at the same time is an aid
to business in the city, to carry on the
work nnd if necessary dig down in
their pockets to keep things going.
We think that it ia rather unfair to
those who have stood hy tlie association nnd brought it to what it is now
that they should be looked nt askance
..nd that the rest should quietly drop
out of practically any connection with
it. The probability is that, should
tlividends accrue, then every stock
holder would proclaim himsell on thc
house tops. The matter ol changing
t'.e name nnd title has been discussed
forrtasonsthat, in the fiist place
funds are needed nnd again an Agricultural association would embrace
many people and evoke their interest
and support, who would not otherwise
lend a helping hand. We do not
assert that this is the only reason and
one, which lo many, would seem
merely a ruse to collect funds for a
Turf Club, only under another name.
Far be it. Looking at it in a progressive light, the idea ol forming an
agricultural society out of the Turf
Association, which really comprises a
urc,e number ol citizens, is one which
has been lormulated by reason nt the
increased industries in and near Revelstoke, ol fruit growing and tanning,
and to encourage tlie same Revelstoke
is big enough to have a fair of her
own, when the products in animals,
vegetables nnd minerals can be displayed and the incentive given to increase the same. An Agricultural Abso
oiation we think would be more popular
and embracing many forma ol exhibits
and|aniusements,|wouid attract a large
number of people, who would perhaps,
not otherwise attend n ince meeting
only.
The question is one whicli should
receive careful consideration by the
gener il Revelstoke public, aB the Turf
Association, at least those who lake
an active part in it, feel that if public
interest and support were forthcoming a Revelstoke fair will soon be an
established thing to benelil the com
muuity and widely advertise the
district.
Revelstoke's Early History
The extension of tlio Revelstoke
water works system is steadily progressing. About 8,000 feet of water
mains are to be put down altogether.
and about half of it has already been
laid, Thirty men are employed and
the whole system will be completed
and ready tor use it. a little while.
The new reservoir is also being finished anil a splendid hend of water
Bhould be obtained when the new
system is in operation.
The electric light plant ia allu being
rushed towards completion and l.y
November will be in use. A large
number of business bouses and residences Imve already beeu wired. Sept.
25th, 1897.
About Sit") p.m. Sunday the prolonged blowing of a locomotive whistle
told ol something wrong and requir-
attentiou. The word soon went about
that tl.e roundtiouse at the station
wss afire, and from all points crowds
Socked to the scene of thc conflagration. And a scene it was ol such
wildnest and luridnest as to make one
fearful uf the consequences
The extent of tbe damage occasioned is about $40,000,   July 25 1897.
The first building erected in the
Revelstoke building boon, ol '97 was

The Greal McEwen Spends lhe
Summer Planning Mysteries
The theatric.il euson l-rings to tl.e
1 cl opera liouse an engagement ol
the Great McEwen ai.d Ins popular
orgmiizition, in a programme ol hypnotism, magic, mind-rending and
vaudeville' There iB no entertainer
belore the public that is better known,
or giving better satisfaction to larger
audienoes than the Great McEwen,
and his appearance here will be welcomed by those interested in the
mysterious or seeking fuu in the
amusing hypnotio performance.
Mr. McEwen lms spent the entire
summer in searching among the new
ideas in magic, and has perfected a
number of tricks and illusions that
will create a sensation wherever produced. The new and startling illusion
entitled, " The Magicians Dream,"
has puzzled the brightest minds in the
magical world, while Ihe complicated
trick, "Muchamesa," suggested by the
HindooB is most perplexing.
Hypnotism, in all ite branches has
been a lile study with the Great
McEwen, and the results he obtains,
using a class of local men, iB wonderful. There is no entertainment so
interesting to the scientific minded
and amusing to the pleasure-lover as
a well conducted class in hypnotism.
The Great McEwen'e reputation wae
made in this line of work and the fact
that this* science will be a feature ol
his performance thie season, assures
all'theatregocrsota highly enjoyable
evening, when this clever entertainer
again visits us.—Tapping's Opera
