Work on Central Section of
Revelstoke Sanitary Drainage Begun—To be Completed
pleted by October 15th.
A large gang uf workmen is already
busy sinking (lie initial excavations
that are tu complete the central portion ol the sewerage system of the city
ol Revelstoke and hy the middle of
Ocluber, shuuld the terms uf the con
tract be carried out, the whole central
part ol the city from the School Block
to Orton Avenue, and Irom the C.I'.R
trackage to the waterfront will be un
deruiined and drained with a complete
modern septic tank system for the
handling of the sewage of tlie business
and part ol the residential section.
In June 11)07 bylaws were finally
passed by lhe city council having been
previously authorised by tbe rate
payers lor the expenditure of $99,581
odd dollars for sewet age purposes and
since that time debentures in the Bum
of $35,000 have been successfully
negotiated. Out of this latter sum
the present improvements arc being
carried ou.
The plans at present uuder prusecu.
tion involve the laying of au 18-iuch
main on Cuunatight avenue extending
as far as Sixth streetb where, the septic
tank will lie located uu a piece of city
property and draining from there into
the Columbia river. On tbe*west side
connections will be had by means ol
mains laid in the lanes between Third
and Second, Second and First streets,
aud between First street and Victoria
road as far as the General Hospital.
This will complete the system on the
west side of the Smelter spur.
On the east side the system will
entail a main in tbe lane between
Connaught and McKenzie avenues
from Eighth Btreet to Victoria Road
and in the lane between McKenzie and
Orton avenues from Sixth street tu
Victoria road. Also an extension in
tbe lane between First and Second
streets joining tbe Robson avenue
drainage to tbe McKenzie avenue
main. On the laue between Second
and Third streets the sewer will extend from Ruhsun to McKenzie avenue
and ou Third and Fourtii streets, ss
well as in that between Fourth and
Fifth streetB between McCarter avenue
to McKenzie avenue Between Fifth
and Sixth ihe lane will be drained
from Orton avenue to MoKenzie avenue, thus providing a complete watershed for the release ul all cesspools
and other menaces to the publio
Oue ol the features o! the present
system which cannot be too highly
Ciiminendeii is the pruviainu for lie
diversion fur the two streams which
now croBS the C.P.R. track , one at
PearBon street and another at Camp
bell avenue, both of which have been
leeders for every sort of germ that
natural selection and cross breeding
could produce. These strcama have
dralte.l tbe seepage Irum cesspools aud
closet? all uluug their course and iu
warm weather at every stagnation the
processes which go un iu a septic tank
uuder cover might be witnessed without microscopes in the uncn air. Tbe
new system involves the complete
cleansing of these, their protection hy
proper curbings where necessary and
tbe enforcement uf laws probibitiug
their defilement in any way. This in
itselt will go a long way toward removing one ol the more immediate
and ever present sourceB ol danger,
especially during the Summer mnnihs.
So far as that portion ol the city
affected by the present plans, it may
confidently be expected that when tbo
system is iu operation, no mure pruperly drained nur conveniently piped
city will be luuud in tdis province.
The site o! this city is such that
unly average depths need he excavated
and with twu 18-incb mains and a
series ol 6, 8 and 10 inch feeders, ample
[all will be secured.
The contract was let to the Rick-
man Ce i ent and Construction Company, ol Vancouver, and construction
ol the pipes throughout will be of
cement. The city has been fortunate
in that it has secured a tigure for the
whole work which is something like
33 per cent, less than would have had
to be paid in case vitrified had beeu
used. All the construction work is
guaranteed fully equal tu the best
vitrified and and probably Revelstoke
will be the first city in the province
to make the cxperimentuf au entirely
cement system.
Much favorable comment is heard
respecting the action uf the Council
in resolviug to employ ratepayers
preferably aud residents exclusively
upon the work. The ordor in which
these are tu be mustered to the roll
call is also commended. While perhaps not more than hall a hundred
men will be employed these will he
kept constantly at work uud it is expected lhal hy the expiry of tbe contract tbs system will be oompiete.
Brilliant  Success by   Ladies'
Hospital Guild
Tbe annual ball, given under the
auspices of the Ladies' Hospital Guild,
was held last night in the Opers
House aud success heing its characteristic feature. The Ladies' Guild have
spared no pains to insure this, their
annual event, a success, and if hard
work and constant attention to details goes fur anything, the ladies
certainly deserve much credit lur tlieir
eflYirts. Assisted by the members of
the Hospital Board, the ladies succeeded in presenting a very prettily
decorated hall, colored lights, bunting
and Hags being extensively UBed. The
attendance was guud and i In me present
spoke in enthusiastic terms ol the
dancing. Supper was served at midnight, and departing from the rule
which has been adopted in pust years,
that uf having a sit-duwn supper
upstairs, the pleasing part of every
dance wus partaken in the main hall,
benches being used as improvised
tables. The many dainty articles
among the supper were much appreciated and the least provi d most
enjoyable. Tbe Independent Band, as
usual, were up to the mark, and judging by tbe unusual Bight ol many ol
Revelstoke's confirmed non-dancers
disporting themselves un the floor,
"la danse" is still initiating new
members into her fascinating toils.
Thuse whu were present voted the
utVair u jolly success and a handsome
Bum was realized. The Ladies' Guild
are to be congratulated on the success
of their annual dance.
New Mills Under Construction
to Meet Spring Orders
"Conditions iu the prairie provinces
are better than they have been for the
past two years. If the crop is only sn
average one the demand for lumber
this [all will be the largest since 1906.
The demand at present is excellent,
but prices are at a liguie which leaves
no profit for the coast mills. Tbe
acreage under cuitivatiuu in Saskatchewan will be double tbat of last
year." Such was tbe opinion expressed
at Vancouver by Mr, J. C. Shields of
Regina this week.
Mr. Shields is manager ol various
lumber companies, including the Independent Lumber company, which
are the largest distributors ol lumber
in the new provinces, Recently he
has branched uut and tbe companies
he organized with a paid up capital ol
$200,000 will own three sawmills in

he declared that it would be eminently desirable to bring together in consultation the great Colonies and the

exhibited, and with the commun object which we ought to have in view,
to ascertain our respective shares in

Ottawa, April 21.—The Railway
Commission has handed down a judgment refusing the application of the
British Columtiiu Government for an
order of tbe board to compel tbe C.P R.
to reduce freight and passenger rates
in that province. The appliontion is
based on a resolution of tho l'roviuoial
Legislature last session, and the case
was heard at Victoria some time ago.
The province claimed that the present
discrimination iu rates waa a violation
of the contract made by the C.I'.R. in
1880, The company claimed that its
contract was with the Dominion and
not witb the Provincial Government.

Indications of Midsummer Famine Before New Crop Arrives
Householders wiiu use potatoes, and

niutitlia yet. Wliile all ui'e using potatoes now, it may lie that sume will
try tu du ivitbuiit them befure midsummer arrives, Fur sume time past
the price lias beeu high, and tuilny
they are quoted wholesale at frum $l.ri
to $50, with no signs uf weakening,
A year or sn ngu the price wns quite

quantity in 11)08,'virile, on tbe other
hand, there has been an increasing
population iu consume them. It is
estimated that there is nut uver lOtl
tuns nl potatoes in Vanoouver at present, and tlicae are consumed at about
twenty tons per day. Where tu seen
mure is another problem, 'I'hey nre
scarce aud high in Seattle, and un

lt is nut expected that the new potatoes will he in ns earlv this year us

state that it will be .Inly 1st befoie

Winston Churchill Scorns Fear
of Conflict with Germany
l-ONiin.N, April 21—In a long letter
to hia admirers, dealing with naval
matters, Winston Spencer Churchill,
president ol the board uf tn dc, declares that nu more fatal ubsession
cuuld benumb the hrain of any statesman than to suppuse there w j. pru
found aiitagouiBin between Great Britain and Germany which cuuld unly
be Bolved by war, because through
their commercial intere 'a alone these
two countries are necessary to each
In a general defence ol the guvern-
tnent's naval policy, Mr Churchill]
Batly declare* lhat it would he absurd
to build ships against the 1'nited
State* and that it is not the government's policy tu take the American
navy into consideration in framing
■ he British na ' .1 estimates.
"Because," he added, "we do not
believe lhat there is any reasonably
prubable—nay. humanly conceivable
—combination against the peace and
fnedomof the British people which
would include the Americau navy."
