subtle truth:
"When 1 cash in, and this poor
race is run, my chores performed,
and all my errands done, 1 know
that folks who mock my efforts
here, will, weeping, bend above my
lowly bier, and bring large garlands, worth three bucks a throw,
and paw the ground in eetasy of
woe. And friends will wear crape
liuwknots on tlieir tiles, while I
look down (or up) a million miles,
and wonder why those people never
knew how smooth 1 was until my
spirit (lew, When 1 cash in 1 will

Capital which to-day is looking

Gentlemen: You state in your
pnper uf tho 22nd inst, that at a meeting of the City Council un the night
uf the 21st a proposed by-law that
referred inter alia in Block 52 was
laid over because "since the oiler uf the
"owner of the pruperly tu sell at the
" assessed valuation a change ol mind
' has been experienced anil a higher
" price is now asked."
This cumpany, which mviis said
blnek, dues not know what ynu refer
to, because between the receipt of the
Bohool board's letter nt 27th March
declining tu purchase and the above
iliitcnt the Uiiy Council meeting, 21si
inst, neither the Buard nor lhe Council was in receipt ul nny communication (ruin this company on the subject,
and, moreover, neither in thai interval
nnr later, bus the alleged change nf
mind been experienced.
Yuur above wrought! interference
with the private business uf this company, apart Irom the deception uf tlie
public and ratepayers and parents in
nn important concern, requires tbe
insertion in yuur newspaper ol tins
letter uf contradiction, preliminary to
any further pr needing- that may he
deemed necessary in the occurring
cuurse nf even!.-.

News of Probable Naval Cor-
diale Between Powers
It is alleged that overtures looking
to a naval understanding between
Great Britain ana the I'nited States
have been made by the British government through Ambassador Bryce
at Washington, Premier Asquith bad
this in mind when speaking recently
iu what was regarded as a cryptic
manner of the "Two-1'ower" standard
lor tbe British navy, Tbe Premier
hopes that such au understanding
may be reached with the American
government as shall enable Great
Britain almost to denude the I'acilic
of British warships ol a formidable
class, in return for giving America
certain assurances respecting the naval
situation in the Atlantic. The suggestions made by Mr. Asquith through
Mr. Bryce follow the lines laid down
in an article by Captain Mahan on the
, naval situation, which has attracted
i wide attention in authoritative circles
| in England. The British cabinet feels
that only an understanding with
America can enable Great Britain to
maintain the two-power standard in
\ Europe. Tlie British government is
inclined to seek a naval understanding with the I'nited States on account
of tbe possibility of Japan declining tu
; renew the Anglo-Japanese Alliance
, when it expires. Australians never
cease to urge tlie Motherland to separate its inlluence from tlint of .Japan in
the Pacific and try tn unite the
strength ol tlie Kngiish-speaking race
in that part .if the wurld.

single-piece and two-piece grate no   such-like
provision is made for expansion or contraction,

On the left- and right-hand sides are cotter pins, which when
loosened permit the grates to slide out.   These four grate bars
are made of heavy easl iron, aid are 6nished up with bulldog
teeth.     The teeth will grind up the toughest clinker ; and
because the grates are made in section!, not only can nothing but dunt and
ashes pass through, but after each shaking a different side can be presented

Tlie cleanest factory in Canada
THE Christie, Brown biscuit factory is in keeping with
the international reputation of the firm. Visitors
know just why Christie's biscuits are the best baked—and
hundreds visit the big factory every season.

carefully analyzed before it can enter the bake rooms.
Every device and machine- making for the perfection of

cheerful employes, nil arrayed in spotlessly white uniforms laundried on the premises, speak volumes for the
sanitary conditions under which they work. You just
buy Christie's Biscuits once and you'll know why your
neighbors call them "so good." Th« best grocers keep
them and they cost no more.

Board of Trade Explains Why
Freshman Made Trouble
Just becaure the Mail Hkrai.ii is
big enough and broad enough to get
away from petty personalities and unrighteous squabbles of every kind,
tbere is reprinted a letter sent to tbe
secretary of tbe Revelstoke board of
trade by the secretary ol the Kamloops board of trade and explaining
tbe unfortunate mistake made by a
"freshman" who is "unfortunately in
charge ot tbat otherwise reliable authority tbe Kamloops Standard." It
is too bad, for several hundred reasons tbat tbe Revelstoke Observer
should bave to publish such a letter,
but tbe fact tbat it—tbe letter—
appears on the same page as a labored
defence of the attitude of that paper
in its care for the Kamloops board of
trade—an action which that board
now entirely repudiates is too wild for
description. The Observer must
choose other ground and other weapons
if it intends to make a presentable
ligbt. The letter of the Kamloops
board of trade needs no comment and
reads as follows:
Kamloops, B. C , May 19,1909.
Secretary Revelstoke Board of Trade:
"Sir: We notice with much regret
the comments of tbe RevelBtoke
Mail-Herald, on a garbled report of
tbe action of tbis board, on certain
matter which came to its knowledge,
and to which a garbled report waB
given. Unfortunately, we bave in our
midst a freshman in charge of the
otherwise reliable publication, tbe
Kamloops Standard, who is wholly re-
responsible for tbe version given to
what really took place. As the members of this board feel it iB due to us to
make the correction, we take tbis
opportunity and means in doing so.
The facts of the case are these: At
tbe general meeting of tbe board held
in February last, in diBCussing publicity matters, several speeches were
made on tbe lines of getting more
industries located here, one member
stated that it was rumored that at the
completion of the Field tnunel the
C. P. R. would remove the the repair
shops from Revelstoke to some point
nearer tbe coast, and if bo why not
make an effort to get it here. Tbis
member was present at the quarterly
meeting of the board beld Wednesday,
tbe 12th instant, and in dealing with
miscellaneous business, stated that be
bad not had any further definite information witli respect to tbe removal
ol tbe repair shops from Revelstoke,
bnt tbe idea is still prevalent that
sneb will be the case at tbe completion of tbe aforesaid mentioned
tunnel, and from talk he bas bad witb
railroad men, he thinks it will come
to pass. The president waa therelore
instructed to personally interview the
superintendent and lind out if possible
if tbere was any truth in tbo rumor. A
course which we think you will agree
that tbere was nothing dishonorable
in. But these are the facts from
which tbe garbled report was manufactured.
At a special meeting ol the council
of the board held on Tuesday, the
I8ib, and besides passing a resolution
of censure, 1 was instructed to make
the Amende Honourable.
Trusting that tbis explanation will
correct tbe unpleasant impression
which the regrettable sensational report gave.
1 have the honor to remain,
Yours truly,
John F. Smith,
(The secretary of the local board has
stated to us that while he waB not in
favor of the Board matter being given
ta tbe public before being dealt with
by tbe board, yet acquiescing to the
suggestion ol a number ol members to
allow the above letter to go into print
now, on tbe grounds of tbo matter
being practically public property, he
has consented.—in.

claimed, will entirely obviate tho uncertainties with which other wireless
systems have had to contoutl, says a
•pecial cable to a Chicago pa|nn. The
new method consists in sending out
the vibrations which form the measures as pure musical tones tbat arc
capable ol being board by the receiver,
no matter bow softly they may Ini
attuned. It is declared by the inventors that by moans ol tbis device it
will be possible lor tho lirst time since
wireless telegraphy was established, to
maintain communication regardless
ol the condition of the atmosphere.
Another advantage claimed is that it
will be possible to work with muoh
smaller antennae for the aerial wires,
by wbicb the enorgy is absorbed. In
tbeir passage through tho air, tbe
singing sparks will be entirely noiseless.
Story of C. P. R. Against City
With Scores
The lint local niateb of the year
took place S tnrday last between those
old lime rivals in the noble game,
C.P.K. and City. The company, with
Blacklock, captain, winning the toss,
went lirst to bat on a splendid wicket,
but the bowling ot Cooke (wbo is
getting faster and straighter daily)
autl Maley waB so good tbat Brier
alone succeeded in getting double
figures, and bis score of runs were well
earned indeed. Cooke took six wickets
for ten and Maley four for twenty-five.
Side out for forty.
Tbe City opened badly, Atkins,
Young and Maley all falling victims
to Brier. Brooker's catch, dismissing
Job, was a peach. Foster followed
withjseven, but it was not till Cooke
and Bourne got together that anything
was doing, and tben it was Norris A
Rowe for awhile. Cooke went out
l.b.w. for a splendid seventeen, while
Bouruc carried his bat for a superb 60
in which were t nly li singles. The
innings closed for 109. Brier got
seven wickets for 53, Brooker, two for
30 and Annan one for 21. Ooble's
wicket-keeping for the company's team
was very good and his batting was
much better than his score expresses.
Following is the detailed score of the
two sides—one innings only per Bide.

New York Scientist Recalls An
Ancient Scare
A New York despatch Bays: A
comet living through space nt the rate
of many millions ol miles a minute I
riiiliiilcil a light which wns plainly
visible to the naked eye, according to |
Edwin Fairfax N.uilty, ol No. 160
Fifth avenue, a student ol astronomy,
who is en dited witb numerous discoveries in that science.
Tbe comet, who«e conoradia, or
direct light, was seen by Mr. Nniilly
last, evening, wns discovered by Prof.
William R. Brooks, of Hobart college,
Geneva, N X., on Monday morning,
and by a coincidence its approach was
noted the sntnii afternoon in New York
by Mr. Nnulty.
lie said tin oouiet was lelwien the
earth and tbe sun, nnd that at sunset
its light was at cross angles with the
rays ol tbe sun.
"There is absolutely no danger to
the earth in contact with the comet's
tail," said Air. Naulty.
"Danger Irom contact with the
comet iUoll would be nothing," he
went on, "assuming that the gaseous
elements aro always na shown by tbo
spcclruni. The only danger would be
contact witli the Holid substances lul-
luwing a comet in its orbit, and as
these always have been minute in
size,   tbey are.   except   in   rare cases,
dissipated   with gnH  by the frlotion
resulting (rom their passage through
the air to tbe earth.'
