HARSH   WORDS
Used in Election Act Debate in
B. C. Legislature
Victobu, Feb. 19.—Sidestepping,
subterfuge, compact, conspiracy, withdraw it, rotten, were hurled by Socialists through Nanaimo to Rossland and
Revelstoke (or a lively hour alter the
house late yesterday bad heaid Hon.
Mr. Tallow's monetary masterpiece.
"Investigate," finally came the demand ol Delta
"Very well," readily agreed the attorney-general, "I will write at. .nee
lor an explanation from both the registrar ol votes at New Westminster and
at Revelstoke "
"We are proud ol our officials."
Tbis Irom tbe attorney-general stsrted
all.
"Oh, you are!" came bsok Delta,
"and just the other day I told you of
the officer at New Westminster who
placed names on the list alter giving
his certificate striking them off.
"If tbis case, which arose months
•go, was so serious as you would have
us believe, why didn't you then bring
it to my attention?" asked the attorney-general alter Delta had dwelt at
some length upon his complaint.
"Why tell you, because I have no
confidence in you."
Then arose the Liberal leader witb
the Revelstoke Observer and a charge
tbat 250 names had been struck off
the lists just prior to tbe Dominion
election, the paper containing affidavits tbat many of these were improperly erased.
In explaining this, after Nanaimo
had contributed verbal pyrotechnics
upon alleged compacts and conspiracies, Hon. Mr. Taylor said thst the
Observer was extremely partisan aud
tbat the names had not only been
properly struck off as absentees and
dead men, but had been submitted to
the secretary ol the Liberal association ol RevelBtoke. From the word
submitted" the opposition inferred
'connivance," and Nanaimo carried it
to "conspiracy."
But the Minister of Public Works
calmed the storm by giving it tbe
meaning he intended, merely tbat the
Liberal secretary had access to the list
aod approved of the striking off.
During the debate tbe secretary ol
the Liberal Association of the province waa mistaken for the secretary
at Revelstoke, whereat Delta flared at
the offender, Nanaimo.
"Oh," put in Parker Williams, "it
would require an expert detective to
find either the secretary or the Provincial Liberal Association. The best
way to settle this little matter is for
the government to return the deposit
of the Socialist candidate in tiie Revelstoke election."
to
San Francisco Opera Co.
The announcement tbat the San
Francisco Opera Company's return to
Revelstoke for two nights next week
is causing a Hood of pleasureable
anticipation, for never has any company presented such excellent operatic
productions as tbe San Franciscians.
This company will be remembered lor
the bit it made in tbe "Toymaker"
last September. For tbis engagement
"The Strollers" will be presented on
Friday nigbt and "Dolly Varden" oo
Saturday night. Both these oongic
operas bave been great successes in all
the big cities of tbe east, and where-
ever presented by Manager Healy's
forces they are recommended as the
best pieces of his extensive repretoire.
In tbe company tbis time will be
found all tbe favorites of laat visit and
many new people wbo will be introduced for tbe first time. Teddy Webb,
tbe clever comedian, still heads the
comedy, and Mabel Day ie the charming and petite prima donna. Tbe
chorus bas been materially augmented
and many thrilling voices will be heard
iu tbe ensembles. There are forty
people in the oompany, wbicb is quite
tbe largest organisation ol tbe kind
ever offered in Western Canada. Tbe
scenery and costumes are said to be
very beautiful, wbile many consider
il the most extravagently gowned
show in America.
Witb the splendid record ol tbe last
engagement and the favorable reports
that bave preceded it this time, there
is little doubt but thst Tbe ?an Francisco Opera Company will attract two
ol tbe largest houses ever seen in
Revelstoke for sny travelling company. The tickets for both nights
will be placed on sale at Macdonald's
drug store on Tuesday morning, ard
the prices aie 76c, $1 and f 1.50.

CLEVER CAPTURE
Express Order Thief Run
Earth by Local Men
A smart piece ol detective work was
effected this week by several local
meu, resulting in the capture ol one
ol the slickest crooks that, ever struck
this town. This gentleman goes Ly
the name ol Sinclair, and bad a particular interest in cashing express
orders, s-vcral of which be made good
wilh, until, elated by suocess, he was
caught unawares lli- lasi exhibition
look place in the store uf the McKac
Mercantile Cu , where he tried io easb
a big order, alter making siveral large
porcha-os. Kenny McRae, doutitlul
as to the genuineness of the order,
aud lotting bis mind wander back to
a paragraph in a newspaper abuut
some express books being stolen in
tbe States, put two and two together
and rang up J. L Stark at the express office, where his suspicions were
verified. Tbe description giveu tallied
exactly witb tbat of a man wanted in
Savannah, Georgia, ior stealing express books, for whose oapture a reward of $200 is offered. Cbiel Bain
was telephoned for and the man was
arrested, incriminating evidenoe being
found on bim. Sinclair had evidently
been reaping a rich harvest on his ill-
gotten gains until he struck Kenny
McRae, who proved a snag. The reward will probably be divided up between Mr. McRae, Chief Bain and Mr.
Stark. Tbe prisoner is being held
here pending extradition proceedings
as he is badly "wanted" in the State
of Georgia. This is the second time
tbat our local "detectives" bave recently effected a smart capture.
TRAFFIC BRIDGE
Contractors Here— Labor and
Material Supplied Locally
Messrs. Maodonald and Gillette, tbe
successful tenderers for tbe government traffic bridge across the Columbia river at Revelstoke, bave arrived
in the oity and are making preparations Ior the immediate commencement ol tbe work of construction.
Mr. Macdonald stated to tbe Mail-
Herald yesterday that all supplies
and material would be purchased in
Revelstoke, and that all the labor required would also be secured in the
city.
Both the contractors are well known
men in tbe Kootenays, having done
extensive contract work in tbe dis.
trict. Mr. Macdonald has been, until
recently, carrying out governmenl
contracts at Prince Rupert. He is
well known in Revelstoke, being one
ol tbe first to enter tbe town.
It is expected that as many men
will be employed on the work as can
possibly be put on, in order to push
on the construction before the water
rises.
Tests were made yesterday ol the
thickness of the ice along the line of
bridge site. Tbe contractors will lose
no time in getting tbeir men and material on the ground, and the next lew
weeks will show much activity in
RevelBtoke.
When completed, the bridge will be
a fine piece of work, both Mr. Gillette
and Mr. Macdonald being noted for
their thoroughness in workmanship
and detail.
REVELSTOKE HOSPITAL
Receive Grant of $8,000 from
Government
Preparations are being made for the
early erection of a new wing for tbe
hospital. Tbe matter of tbe addition,
tbe want of which has been badly lelt,
has been under discussion for some
time, tbe hospital board leeling that
operations would not be commenced
(or the erection of tbe new wing until
tbey bad sufficient funds. We learn
tbat tbe government has given a grant
of 18,000 towards the hospital, which
will materially aid io tbe work, boing
exactly double the amoont applied Inr
last year. Tbe accommodation of tbe
hospital bas been much taxed this
year, and as the city increases in sito
so will the requirements ot tbo hospital
be increased, especially as the gov.
ernment require tbat consumptive
patients must be kept tbere. Tbs
publio should lend tbeir best support
to any reasonable scheme for promot
ing tbe welfare and utility ol the
hospital.

•THE LITTLE MINISTER "
Creditable Production by Local
Thespians
Revelstoke playgoers were given a
big treat when "The Little Minister"
was put on by local talent at tbe
opera bouse on Thursday night. The
house wae crowded and everybody
went away well pleased with the entertainment. "Tbe Little Minister"
is a pretty comedy drama by J. M.
Barrie, and all of the parts were exceptionally well taken, especially when it
is considered it was the first publio
appearance in dramatics of seven of
tbe caste.
The leading roles were taken by
Mrs. F. C. Elliott as 'Lady Babbie,"
and Mr. D. M. Rae as "Gavin Dysart."
Mrs. Elliott played ber part very
charmingly, and Mr. Rae made an
excellent clergyman, although bis
stature did not give the idea that be
waB a little minister. Our uld lavorite
Mr. W. M. Lawrence was at hnrne in
his part aB "Rob Dow," and Mr. H,
Cunningham Morris showed bis dramatic ability by the excellent manner
he personated "Lord Rintoul." Mrs.
Sturdy as "Nannie Webster," wae ex
ceptionally good, and delighted the
audience with her acting, especially
during Act II, where tbe scene is the
interior ol her cottage. Miss White
as "Felice" caused plenty of fun, and
tbe audience would bave liked to have
seen her on tbe stage oftener. Mr. W
.1. W. Brown was at home in the role
of "Captain Halliwell," and particular
mention should be made of Master
Jim Lawrence as "Mioah Dow." Olthe
others it is hard to single any special
parte out for commendation, viz., Mr.
J. L Stark as "Tammas Whamond,"
cbiel elder; Mr. J.Carmiobael, "Snecky
Hohart"; Miss Foote, "Jean," tbe
Mause servant; Mr. R. Ackman, as
"Sergt. Davidson"; Mr. J. G. McLean,
"Twaiis," tbe butler; and Mr. J. Donald io tbe double role ol "Joe Cruick-
sbanktTand "Andrew Mealmaker." All
were well played, and tbo whole caste
deserve great credit lor the capable
way tho piece was bandied, The dramatic club should have every encouragement as lhu local talent is certainly
above tbe average (or a city mucb
larger than Kevelstoke, and we advise
tbem lo get down to a system ol rehearsals which would, in a short time,
put tbem in tbe position of lieing ablo
to stage plays in a manner unly
excelled by the very best professional
companies. To Mr. B. R. Copelaud,
stage manager, mucb credit is due fur
the manner in which all details had
bven brought down to a fine poinl,
Miss V. McKinney and Miss F, Law-
ion provided excellent musie between
the acts.

in regard to this we would give a
word of warning, in the past few
years there has been no feature of
Canada'sJprogresB more remarkable
than the position she has won with
the Uritish investor. Whereas, a
decade ago, as we have just stated,
most of the Canadian appeals for

that the sight of a Canadian prospectus attracts mere attention than
that of any other singlti coin-try.
This is a very rare and valuable

than this, that if Canada will keep
a clear head and a steady hand she
can get in Ureal Britain all the
money she needs fur the develop-

VOCATION OF THK PRESS
"That the newspaper is here to
stay because it is indispensable, and
lhat anyone thinking of entering
upon such work should not engage
in it unadvisedly nor lightly, but
reverently, discreetly, advisedly,
soberly and in the fear of liod,"
were the statements made by Mr.
Hart Lynns, editor of the New
York Tribune, in an address recent
ly delivered by him nl Yale College
on journalism. Speaking of the
criticisms of the newspapers he
said :
"There arc few things less credit

GLOWING PROSPECTS
A Commercial Sermon on  Industrial Revelstoke
''Across ttie Alps lies Italy,"
said Nupolenn many years ago.
Today, hundreds oi incoming
settlers to Canada will soon be
saying, "Across the Rockies from
the east or across the Cascades
from lhe west lies llevelsloke and
we are going to live there." Neither
one of the above quotations are
interpolations, but are both stubborn facts and the transcontinental
railway companies being well aware
of the latter fact, are equipping all
their service to carrying this avalanche of immigration to the Inland Empire of the future, and the
sunny slopes and valleys of the
Kootenays. Advices from England
of recent date report that Kootenay
and Revelstoke in particular have
been receiving great publicity from
sources, which, although we are
well aware of, yet which just now
would not be advisable to identify.
Arc we, in this inviting locality,
prepared to meet and hold a share
—or our share—of these desirable
citizens? Ate our land holders
and land companies prepared to
cut up their holdings into small
tracts to accommodate the newcomers with reasonable figures ?
It should be remembered that the
increase of population is what increases tlie value of land and all
commodities, and with this plain
truth constantly before us, we
must take action in no uncertain
way. o secure and satisfy as many
settlers as possible. Revelstoke
citizens can very materially assist
in this by establishing themselves
and inducing others to establish
home industiies that will employ
labor the year round. Would it
not he more reasonable for home
capitalists to invest in home industries of all kinds than to put
their money in lands, timber and
mines all outside of our tributory
territory'.' We believe it would;
and we believe tlie investor would
get quicker and better returns on
his investments. Keep the home
capital at work, building up the
home industries and thero will he
recompense both di recti v and indirectly.
Again we rail public attention to
transportation and the new settlers.
It is more than likely  that belore

England Thinks War Inevitable
In an interview which he gave
to the press in Montreal last week
ir Charles Hibbcrt Tupper, in
speaking of matters in Great Britain
where lie spent, the past few months,
said:
'What impressed me more than
anything else, both in London and
tlie country, is the settled conviction of every Englishman you meet
that liermany is making alj possible preparation for a war with
England. As a matter of fact, I
was constrained to laugh at a
country squire whom I met outside
ondon and who talked in the
most serious manner of Germany's
alleged war-like intentions. He
had the matter down line, even
telling mo that all tho warships
now being built by Germany were
only for one purpose, and that a
war with (ireat Britain. He explained to me that tlie small coal-
cirrying capacity of these ships
render them absolutely useless
against any other power, and that
England, and England alone, is
aimed at in all this preparation.
Well, 1 repeated what this gentleman had said while I was talking
to a number of military and naval
men, and, to my surprise, they confirmed in every particular the re
marks of the country gentleman to
whom 1 have just referred. They
said that he was right, and then
proceeded to tell me what Germany
was doing in the way of shipbuilding, all of which, in their opinion,
goes to show that Germany is making hasty preparations for a mighty
war upon England."
"Are the Uritish people thoroughly cognizant of what is going
on in Germany, and are they keeping tlieir powder dry?" Sir Hibbert
was asked.
"They certainly appear to know
what is coming, and I presume that
the mother country will not be
caught napping."
Then Sir Hibbcrt went on to say
that a whirlwind was sweeping over
England. Kvery man one meets
on the street, he states, and iu public places,speaks of the want of the
country, which is nothing more or
less than a return to protection as
the necessity, for a radical change
in the fiscal policy of England is
daily becoming more apparent and
that the people will certainly be
heard at no distant date on this
question. He did not believe,
however, that an appeal to the
people would be made during the
present year, neither did Sir Hibbert presume that the present
ministry would ever heed the warn
ing all over the three kingdoms
and trim tlieir political sails in
consequence. On the contrary, the
ex-minister of justice believed that
the Liberal party of England would
cling to tlieir old idols and go
down to tlefeat with their free trade
colors nailed to the masts.
Although some people make light
of the fact that thousands of unemployed are seen throughout the
country, and declare that they do
not want work, yet Sir Hibbert
saw many evidences of tho fact in
different parts of the country districts that large crowds are daily
-iin junking for employment.
There is, he added, a great deal
ol talk concerning Mr. Chamberlain, and really he is, according to
Sir Hibbert, the political hero of
Greal Britain, and this fact hc-
COtnei inure potent as An day of
thai gfiii statesman*! vindication
.1 thi ptople'a Inuiii- draws near,
lb- is llie nn.si pnpular man in
'■mat Britain today,says Sir Hibbert, who also believes that the ex-
-ii retary ol lhe colonies will again
present himself fur election in his
faithful Birmingham, which will
. .' h send its idol in parliament
by an overwhelming majority.
8iT    lliiiberl    Tupper   does    not
think, however, lhat Mr. Chamber-
linn will ever again lake an active
pari, in imperialpolitioi, but he is
by all odds the idol par exoellenci'
nl the British people.

IMPORTANT ADDRESS
By W. H. Rowley, President of
E. B. Eddy Co., Hull. Ont.
A special meeting of the Board of
Trado was held on Wednesday afternoon .'or the purpose of bearing W. H.
Rawley, president of the E. B. Eddy
Co., Hull, Ont., the largest paper
manufacturers in Canada. Mr. Ron-
ley ia vice-president of the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association, and ie
making bis annual tour ol inspection
ol all Canadian points, and in bis
short address brought out some very
interesting features regarding tbe new
bill of lading tbat was being sdopted,
describing it as simple and practical
and fair for shippers io every way.
He explained how the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association employed
expert! to look into all coinplaiuts regarding customs, insurance, etc., ior
tbe benefit ol tbe manulactureri.
Mr, Rowley pointed out tbat the
preservation of tbe Canadian forests
and waters was the most important
movement tbat had spread through
Canada. He instanced the value of
Canadian lumber, and said that there
could be no real profit on pulp
wood unless prohibition was put on
its export to the States. Pulp and
paper mills must be situated together
for profitable work. He tben described
tbe making ol pulp and paper and the
great value it had, especially as
Americans bad eyes on Canadian pulp
areas.
The matter ol freight rates was dis
cussed, but Mr. Rowley would nrt
offer any direct statements in tbat
direction. In conclusion be enthusiastically extalled the virtue ol B. O.
resources and prosperity, and thanked
the board lor their courtesy.
A vote of thanks was passed to Mr.
Rowley and tbe meeting terminated.
THE TOWN CLOCK
A Modern Addition for the Convenience of Revelstoke
A towu clock in Revelstoke would
be welcomed by the people generally;
one which would be visible and audible
from all parts of the city. "Time is
the essence of agreement" in all dealings in life, and this fact can be
especially rubbed iu to the RevelBtoke
people, who are celebrated for their
unpunctuality in turning up at all
functions, whether social, political,
commercial and otherwise. In Revelstoke it is legally 8 p 111. until it is t)
p. m., as an instance, and tbe custom
has teen tbat of " what-is-thc-nsc of-
going-now,- tilings never-start-on-time
—8-o'clock-means-balI-past," and it
•eemi impossible that aucb a habit
will be broken.
Witb a city clock, maintained in a
condition ol absolute accuracy, the
purpose would be solved, and tho fact
that Father Time is staring us all iu
tbe (ace, might be instrumental in instilling into our minds the tenets ol
punctuality.
No more suitable location for a big
to..n clock could be found than in the
tower of tbe new poBtollice (when
ereetcd).
Apart from the fact that a city clock
would be a public convenience, there
would also be the sentimeutal attraction and (ascination in the booming of
tbe hours on the bell and the clarion
chimes as the quarters go by.
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT
Opened by King Edward—No
Surprises in the Speech
Lonoom, Feb. 10.—A greater crowd
than usual gathered at Westminster
on Tuesday, for the state opening ol
parliament by Kiug Edward, accompanied by Queen Alexandra, Prince
and Princess of Wales,and other members of the royal family.
Tbo King's speech (rom tbe throne
contained no surprises, and legislation
ioreoast was largely sooial in character.
It dealt witb tbe treaty regulating tbo
use ol waterways adjacent to tbe Can
ailian and United States boundary,
tbe advice of tbe Canadian government being followed out.
FULL OF HARDWARE
Insane Patient Ate Everything
from Hairpins to Nails
Month.ial, Feb. 10—As showing
the ability ol a person to perform gas
trononnc feats, and also as showing
the capacity to which the human
stomach can be made the receptacle
of articles not usually considered
among the list of food commodities, a
statement made by Dr. Burgess, medi
eal superintendent of tbe Protestant
Hospital for the Insane, in his report
to tbe annual meeting of that body
yesterday, places one of the late patients in that institution in the front
rank of human ostriches, for nothing
seems to bave come amiss in the way
of metal, stone or glass.
An operation bad to be performed
for gnslrci omy, and the stomach was
found to contain the lollowing: Three
bundles ol broom fibre, one piece of
whalebone eight inches long, one piece
of insulating tape seven inches long,
one three inch nail wiih a piece nf
cloth attached, one pieci of wire f..ui
inches long, oue buttonhook, six
pieces of toiiacco stem, twenty one
tobacco tags, thirty-one small pieces
of wire, four screws, one paper lasteuer,
one bojteye, two plum stones, one
piece of twisted picture wire, nine
pieces ol glass, nine pieces ol iron, otic
steel spring, one iron nut, two pieces
ol stone (one half an inob square, the
other an inch long by ball an inch
wide and half an inch thick), twenty
seven pins, live one-incb nails, fifty-
two two-inch nails, seven two-and-a-
half inch nails, thirty-two three-inch
nails, one live-inch nail, one horseshoe
nail, (our tacks and lour hairpins.
Until a (ew days prior to the opera
tion no suspicion was entertained that
the patient, wbo had been ao inmate
of the hospital for nearly nine years,
was indulging if an iudigestible diet,
the articles having been secretly picked
up and swallowed while out on the
grounds. The formation of an abscess
owing to one of tbe pieces of wire
swallowed puncturing the wall ol the
stomach first drew attention to the
cause. Death from peritonitis foi
lowed live days after the operation.
Wheelbarrow Wage—Auto Wife
Sax Jose, Feb. 19.—"Don't marry
an automobile wife on a wheelbarrow
salary," was the motto chosen by 33
young business and professional men
of this city when tbe San Jose Bachelors' club was organized.
Alter contemplating sorrowfully the
many wrecks on the matrimonial sea
these gay young bucks, with mucb
thought and in a mellow spirit, con
Btructed and adopted tbe following
constitution and bylaws.
"The Bachelors' club of Sau Jose
was organized witb a great deal ol
Btudy, consequent upon reviewing the
mitrimoiiial situation as it presented
itself to a party ol broad-minded and
unprejudiced business men, wbo unite
in oue baimonious body, bound by
ties of friendship mutually beneficial
to all, and unalloyed by tho worry and
bitterness ol married life.
"Any member of this club desiring
to become a benedict must first pro-
sent the young lady of his choice to
the members ol tbe olub iu open
meeting, after which a committee will
be appointed to investigate and report
at tbe next meeting as to her social
aud financial standing.
"In the event of th.i committee's
report being favorable, a two-thirds
vote of all tbe members will allow the
member to proceed with his matrimonial venture.
"In event ol tbe courtship culminating lavorably, tbe members must be
notified ten days before tho dato set
for tbe wedding, and an invitation
must be sent to each.
"On the evening preceding the wedding-day the bridegroom must banquet
all the members of this olub at some
first-class restaurant to bo approved
by the club."
The olub is presided   ovor b. Police
Judge  J.  R. Dougherty, and include
the   names ol   San Jose's boat known
unmarried   professional  and   business
men.

Mountain Resorts Popular
Flans are now under consideration
by the C.P.R. (or the enlargement o(
the Empress Hotel, Victoria. This
hotel is without exception the first on
the continent both in situation, appointments and service.
Owing to the opening of tbe Alaska
Yukon lair, which takes place on June
1, and wbicb will attract thousands ol
eastern visitors from Canada and the
United States, it bas been decided to
open the hotel at Band' on May 16, or
two weeks earlier than uatial. Advices
are tbat tourists wbo visited the Rockies and Selkirks last summer are planning return trips tbis year, and in
many instances many ol tbem have
already applied for accommodation,
extending over several weeks. Hundreds ol Americans are also writing
(or information about mountain climbing and the Selkirk glacier and the
Deutschmann caves.

SOCIAL FUNCTION
Pythian Sisters Give Successful Dance
One ot the most successful and popular functions of social Revelstoke was
held on Wednesday night in the opera
liou«e, it being the occasion of the
dance given by the members ol Crystal Temple No. 3. I'ythiau Sinters,
assisted liy Gold Range L"dge, No. 20,
Knights ol Pythias. The tlsure was
attended hy a large and enthueia-tic
crowd and the management of the
proceedings left nothing to be desired.
The hall was beautifully deeo'.ited
with Hags, hunting and innumerable
colored electric lamps. The Independent Band was well up to tbe mark—
due perhaps in a meaBiire to the fact
tbat tbe house was better heated thai,
usual—and provided delightful music
which nude dancing even more than a
pli-asure. R. Gordon, aB master of
ceremonies carried out bis duties in a
manner tbat few could resist and there
were none tbat could say they did not
receie a lull snare of the nance pro
gramme. Tut Hour was in line c ndi
tion mid tlie tuut eneerab e was au
aggregation of pleasure and interest.
As midnight approach, ti the start'
round tbe kitchen got busy and veiy
soou tbe company were be.ng regaled
witu doluc ton tile dainties for which tbe
Revelstoke ladies are famous. Several
very pretty gowns were noticeable, the
smart uniforms of tbo Knights of
Pythias Uniform Rank, making an
elegant contrast to the shimmer and
sheen of the dresses of the ladies. Few
there were that did not come away
thoroughly satisfied after a pleasant
and sociable gathering.

This monring at 9 o'clock the doors of McLennan

stock of the firm placed at the mercy of the
bargain soekers. Never in the history of Revelstoke was a sale so well patronized and never
before were goods sold at such phenomenally low
prices. Enough drygoods and furnishings were
sold to clothe the entire town, while the way the
crowds pushed and clamored for more of the bargains was almost enough to turn the heads of the
sales people. This Adjustment Sale continues
for 13 days and even greater offerings are promised for the coming week. You can make a saving
of from 30 to 60 cents on every dollar.
