CITV COUNCIL'S
SPECIAL MEETING
To Consider the Power Situation
-Action Deferred Until Next
Regular Meeting—TheSewage
Plans Discussed
Special meeting last night.
Present:—Mayor Lindmark, Aida.
l'radolini, Kimberley, Macdonald,
Sawyer and Wella.
A report wan rend by Messrs Smith,
Kerry and Chnce, hydraulic engineers
ol Toronto, reporting the reault ol
their examination of the power plant
and making recommendations for ita
improvement, witli estimates ol costB.
Aid. Macdouald Baid the present dam
was in an unsafe condition and could
not be repaired.
The mayor aaid it wsb their duty to
let the ratepayers know the true
poaition of affairs and place the matter
lully before them. If they decided to
adopt the recommendations of the
engineers, the work could be completed by next spring.
Aid. Sawyer—You are now about up
to your limit of power!
The Mayor—Thia proposal would
give ub 1000 horse power more than
oow. We have at present about 100
borac power which is practically all
uacd.
Aid. Sawyer—The superintendent
tells me this winter you will not be
able to run both power and light 111
the same time.
Aid. Kimberley—Il ia iu bad shape.
The Mayor—It was a good invei-l
ment wheu it was bought, hut the time
has come when it must he improved
to meet the increased demand. The
matter should be laid lully before the
ratepayers and a public meeting held
at which it should be open to tin
fullest discussion.
The City Clerk eaid that laat hub
year the light and power plant paid
tbe city a net prolit ol $(5,100 alter
paying ail expenses and that with 11
heavy charge for repairs and fuel.
The Mayor eaid il it were not for
the gae plant they would be down aud
out. The gas plant waa now working
splendidly.
The City Clerk Baid the interest and
sinking luud un the amount required
to effect these improvemants would be
$6,100 per year.
The Mayor pointed out all that
interest and sinking fund would be
absolutely saved by the saving in the
cost ol repair rendered necessary to
keep tbe preeent system in running
order.
Aid. Macdonald—Would the tail
race trouble us again'.'
The Mayor—Mr. Smith says that
tbe larger body ol water is not liable
to give trouble with drill ice. This ia
one ol tbe moat important things the
city has to face, for here ie our income
—tbe very means ol running the city
—at stake. Then thia improvement
is neceseary to meet the growing
requirenienta of tbe city and of the
C.P.K., wbo will take power from ub
ae Boon ae we can assure them of a
permanent and reliable service
Aid. Pradolini urged protection
against frost and suggested a tunnel
be ptovided at the o allow to protect
against the weather. He urged doing
permanent work, wbicb wsb the only
way to do away with the trouble they
bad had. it would be better to face
an expenditure of $10,000 a year for
interest and sinking fund and make a
thoroughly permanent job of it while
they were at it.
BE8OLVED1
That progress be reported and the
matter he taken up again at next
Friday's meeting of tbe Council.
Aid. WellB considered they should
let the public know what they proposed before laying the matter before
the public.
Aid. Kimberley urged that provision
ahould he made lor every man being
able to eaat hie vote on money bylaws.
The trainmen were so busy they could
not be in town on a fixed day to record
tlieir votes.
Tbe Mayor said they were bound by
the law regulating polls and could not
depart from it.
THE  SCHOOL  IIV-LAW
The mayor regretted the hy-law
voted on that day for purchase ol the
school grounds had been deieated.
Aid. Wells thought No. 1 Ward
must have vetoed it.
Aid. Kimberley said he bad voted
against it.
IHE IKWAQK l'i.ASS
Tbe Mayor read a letter to Or. Pagan, Provincial Health Officer, asking
permiaaion to run their sewers direel
intu tbe Columbia river instead ol to
septic tanks. He said a reply had
lieen received from Dr. Fagan giving
temporary permit to run the sewage
into the river provided no person between Hevelstoke and Arrowhead uacd
the river water and that residents nl
Arrowhead offered no objection. Dr.
Sutherland advised him the medical
council were opposed to septic tanks
Dr. Sutherland and P. Cordon on be-
hall of the government, and be on
behttll ol the city, had seen all Unpeople between here and Arrowhead
and found no objection. The government would test the river [rom time to
time to ascertain whether bacteria
would exist below the sewer and to
what extent. The cities ol Chicago,
Detioit, I'ttawa and Montreal all
dumped their sewage iulo the rivers,
and no bacteria were (ound more than
J" miles Irom tbe point ol discharge.
The I'lnin e iu the disposal ol the
sewage wuuld save the city $18,000 in
lhe cost of septic tanks.
On motion of Aid. Macdonald, seconded hy Aid. Kimberley, it was resolved that the council acknowledge
Dr. Fagan's letter and telegram and
express their satisfaction at the manner in which the matter has been
handled by the Board of Health whose
proposals arc quite satisfactory.
LAND COMPANY W1TIIHKA W O11STKD0TION
The Mayor reported having met the
directors of the Kevelstoke Luud company, who had withdrawn tlieir oppo
sition to the council in regaid to
turning the creekb, suhject to arrangement with certain individuals who, be
found, offered no objection. The city
would have to extend Connauglit ave,,
to give access to a road the Provincial
liiivernineiit would build aoulli of the
cily.
The aldermen expressed their satis-
faction at the sett lenient.
IIANlJlIKT TO  KIKE I'll IMS.
Aid. Macdonald invited the mayor
and aldermen to a banquet, to be tendered by No. 1 and Nu. 2 brigades to
the vieiting lire chiefs—Accepted witb
thanks to the tire brigades lor their
courtesy.
The council tben adjourned.

C.P.R.
A LOVERS QUARREL
Police Court Called Into Requisition-
Will Probably Take Action
Police Magistrate Foster wns called
upon to adjudicate on a queer case on
Monday morning. A C P. K. brake-
man, bulling that the lady ul his love
wished to have no mure lu du with
Inin, took rather a peculiar method of
eudeavoring lo avenge bimsell. He
laid a criminal iiiioiniatii.n against
her late ou Sunday uight, charging
her with stealing a uiamond ring
valued at $200. She v as arrested,
bailed out, and appeared on Monday
morning to answer the charge, W. 1,
Briggs appearing for the defence. Tbe
informant admitted be had given the
woman the ring and the magistrate
very pruperly dismissed the case without culling on the defence.
There are other circumstances connected with this matter in which the
C. P. K. will probably take a band
and that in a way tbat will give general satisfaction to the company's
employee who know the circunieiances
ol the case.
BIG BEND MOPING
Mineral Deposits There are Practically Untouched says G. C. Taylor
C. C Taylor, of Phoenix, reached
tbe city last evening on his return to
the Boundary from a two weeks' trip
to the Big Bend country, eaya tbe
Nelson Daily News. Mr. Taylor has
made several tups into thai district
during the summer, and says that
while tbe district is yet somewhat
hampered by the lack of transportation
facilities be sees a great future before
it.
"The mineral deposits ot the Big
Bend country," eaya Mr. Taylor to a
representative of The Daily News at
the Hume laat evening, "are still
practically untouched, but there ie
every proapect of a revival of the
activity of the early Bixties taking
place in the very uear future. Theie
is a considerable amount of hydraulic
mining going on there just now, and
everything points to a rapid develop
ment throughout that section of
Kootenay."
Mr. Taylor is operating the Montgomery group ol claims on Downie
ereck and the McGregor group on
Lalormc creek, b ita of which he says
are making splendid showings aa the
reault ol development work dune during the summer hy the stall ol men
he has at work. The dinner is a
copper property situated 45 milcB
north ol Kevelstoke, while the latter
ia only 20 miles distant. The ore ol
the McGregor group iB silver lead
" The timber areas ol that country,
continued Mr. Taylor, are unsurpassed
anywhere, and Btretch Ior 50 or (iO
miles to the north ol Kevelstoke. The
timber is all under liconce and some
is being cut. Tlio Ilig Eddy Lumber
Company has several camps through
out that district, the farthest north ol
which is that at the junction 0.'
Downie creek and the Columbia river.
They are taking out 11 good quantity
ol timber wbicli is being brought down
tlie Columbia river to their mill at
Kevelstoke."

Visit of Superintendent Campbeil—Interesting Experiments Made by Department
On Saturday, Mr. It. II. Campbell,
superintendent of the Forestry branch
ol the Department of the Interior,
visited Kevelstoke and wae tlie gueat
ol Mr. K. J. VVataon. Mr. Campbell,
although a young man, ia recognised
aa one ol the ablest olliciala of the
government. Ho has re organised the
Forestry branch and iB determined
tbat the policy ol Forest Conservation
shall take ita proper place in the administration at Ottawa The department has bad ita men out getting
information ae to tho areas ol existing
[uresis, the ctaaaea ol timber, their
condition, age and time required to
mature. The amount of land covered
by forest aud yet suitable lor agriculture is h. ing ascertained and permanent reserves made of the reel of the
timbered lands under control ol the
Dominion. Where land is suitable
for settlement, holders 01 the timber
rights will be required to remove their
timber witli all reasonable speed bo
tbat tb" land may be available to
settlers. Mr. Campbell of course
recognises that the great obstacle to
settlement of forcat lands ia the immense cost ol clearing them for cultivation and the length ol time taken
to do the work.
With other forest lands, care will be
taken to preserve the younger timber
so ae to ensure a never-failing supply,
berth-, being rested eulliciently long
after eacb cut to afford another crop.
The prevention ol lire ia the serious
problem that has to be faced aud
overcome
On tbe prairie the department have
beeu making interesting experiments
and find they can reforest a large portion to meet (uiure riquirements.

foresting areas at the lowest cost. Mr.
Campbell considers great success is
attending this branch of the work of
the department.

THE CITY AND THE C.P.R.
The Board of Trade arc to be
congratulated on the success of
tlieir interview with Mr. McNicoll,
Vice-Presidenl of the C.P.R. Mr.
McNicoll, from bis position as Llie
second highest olliciiil in control of
the C.P.R., is doing great work in
the development of this country.
He is ii man of broad mind, exceptionally keen intelligence, and in
the interview referred to shows his
earnestness to meet the public requirements at- far as possible, and
in n fair and reasonable way.
Revelstoke will,- in the future,
develop great resources, especially
in land, mines, mid timber, which
will afford profitable employment
in a large population, We must
remember that at presenl however
tbis city is mainly dependent on
the railway business, and the cooperation of the city anil railway
company are essential lo progress
and prosperity.
For that reason there should be
a thoroughly good understanding
between tbe head ollicials of the
C.I'.R. and the public bodies and
citizenB of Hevelstoke. The head
ollicials of the C.P.R. arc broad-
minded men. Their very business
makes tbem so. In getting in
touch with them our representative citizens get away from tbe
narrow localisms that too often
pervade the lower ollicial life, ami
make for lugger and better things
for tlieir citv mul district.

The item which
another column as to the willingness of llie Grand Trunk I'acilic
Railway Company to build a
branch south from their main line
at Tete Jaime Cache, opening up
the Canoe and Columbia Valleys,
and giving Revelstoke a second
railway, is one of the hest pieces
of news we have bad the pleasure
of publishing Revelstoke people
are heavily interested in the timber
and mineral wealth of the Rig
Bend. The opening of that country by a railway means placing
tbeir valuabln holdings in a position accessible to the world's markets, ll means opening a new hive
of industry in tlie great territory
to the north, now closed for want
of proper transportation. It means
the elevation of this city to the
great railway junction and com
mercial entrepot of the interior of
Rritisli Columbia, with its mercantile warehouses sending their goods
far and wide, the organisation of
manufacturing industries, and of
enterprises which will develop the
latent wealth of the north land.
Truly Revelstoke iB coming to Ub

the lesB surely.

The tourist trallic of Revelstoke
lias been poorly handled this
reason. If this valuable adjunct
of the city's business is to be properly developed arrangements must
be made to have enough horses in
the city to meet requirements of
visitors who wish to take in the
principal scenic re orts. Tbe day-
will come when it steamer will he

Witli llie growth of Revelstoke
the water supply ol the future is a
matter for serious consideration.
There are two sources from which
tlie present supply could be augmented. These arc Eight-Mile
Creek and (ireely Creek. Both are
fed by glaciers, making tbe supply
assured in tlie heat of 'summer,
when it is most required. The city
have a water record on Eight-Mile
Creek and we suggest ihey also get
one on Greely Creek, as we lal.eve,
all things considered, the tatter
will probably prove tbe most foas-
able scheme," the cost of laying pipe
line and flume construction being
much lesB along tlie valley of the
lllecillewaet than along the steep
slope of tbe Columbia Valley. A
head of 300 feet can be got between
the city and Greely Creek.

HISTORIC TRIP TO YELLOWHEAD
Opening up of Pass by Railways Recalls Remarkable Journey by Viscount Milton
From time to time there conies out
ol ihe IVe.'t reports regarding a race
now going on hetween two great rail
way system*, the goal of which is the
Yellowhead Pass. Each, it is eaid, is
straining every nerve to he the first to
1 icate aud build ils line through that
finions passage across the Rocky
Mountains. In that passage there is
ample room and abundant facilities
for both ao that the result of the race
ij not of paramount importance. The
important thing is that here two
transcontinental railway systems propose croBsing the Rocky Mouutains
and striking the Pacilic Cuast at points
far north of the existing British Columbia ports. This means, not only
new railways, hut new areas opened
to development and settlement, says
the Montreal Star.
The Yellowhead Pans iB not now
engaging fur the tirst time the attention of railway builders. Thirty years
ago tlie Canadian government caused
a preliminary survey of the Pass to be
made, the inteution then being 10
build through the fuss the government railway which had been promised
Uritish Columbia upon its entrance
into Confederation. A few years later
the railway project waa turnfd over to
the present Canadian I'acilic company
and the latter having selected Vancouver as its western terminus, naturally looked for a more southerly pats-
ago through the Rocky Mountains-
Kicking Horse I'ass, the one iu use today, was selected, and the Yellowhead
Pa.-s wai left to enjoy a third of a
ce itury more of solitude. But its
solitude lias at length been lirnken
open. The eugineers have come and
taken tlieir levels and driven tin ir
stakes. Close on Iheir heel" will follow the construction gauge. They
will carry the highway ol ateel throu_.li
the niountaiuB and soou these valleys
and gorges will be resounding wiih
the whistle of the locomotive.
It was only to be expected that the
Urand Trunk I'acilic railway would
uBe the Yellowhead Pass. Alter leaving Winnipeg ita line bears steadily to
the north until it reaches Edmonton,
tbe capital oi Alberta, and tbe portal
ol the great hinterland ol the Central
West. The terminus is to be Prince
Rupert, which is about due west of
Edmoutjn, and a slight detour to the
south carries the line through tbe
Yellow-head Pass, wbicb is the natural
gateway to the Pacific Coast from the
Edmonton country. From tbe point
ol railway construction the pass posses,
sea great advantages lor it is lower
than any of itB rivals, its greatest altitude being 3,710 feet ubuve eea level,
and throughout the greater part of ita
c mrae a railway can be constructed
with a gradient uf three-tenthe ul one
per ceut. There is also room in the
I'aSB (or the right of way of more than
one railway line.
The Pass is heavily wooded, and the
shadow of the forest and still deeper
shadow ol mountain gorges hang over
the greater part of its extent. It haB
changed very little since that summer,
lorty-six yeara ago, when two adven-
turouB young English men. Viscount
Milton and Dr. Cheadle, accompanied
by an Indian guide and his wife and a
very eccentric camp-follower, journeyed Irom Edmonton to the Pacific elope
by way of the Yellowhead PaBS.
It wae a remarkable journey, during
which tbe little party, toiling through
dense forests, wallowing in almost impenetrable swamps and crossing ou
ralte turbulent riverB, endured great
Buttering, encountered grave dangers
Their eupply ol food became exhausted
and it wae only by killing aud eating
their miserable uorseB that they were
able to sustain life until an Indian
camp on .the Thompson river was
reached. By a very narrow margin
indeed did they escape a niiaerable
death Irom starvation. The two Englishmen wrote a graphic account ol
their j nirncy ami Irom its fascinating
pages can here and there be gleaned
descriptions oi the Yellowhead PaBB—
especially interesting nuw that the
Pass ie soon to become one ol the
thoroughfares of the Dominion.

KIND WORDS FOR "SANDY
American Writer Refers to Well-known Slocan
Old Timer
Sidney Noi man, writing in the Los
Angelea Mining Review, Bays: "No
man who haa passed through the boom
days ol tbe Slocan district in British
Columbia can have forgotten E, M.
Stnailands, better known as "Sandy,"
who lirat entered ollicial life as constable near Graham at Kaslo in 1893
and later promoted himself by eaey
Btages to recorder aud juetice ol the
peace at Sandon. He remained until
the last dog was hung iu the latter
camp, high up in the mountains of
the Selkirks, and then at last in
deeperation cloBed his office door,
threw tbe key into the 20 feet of enow
on the street and "hiked" for greener
fields. After a trip to Calgary, where
he lost in an unfortunate real estate
speculation what he had saved in
Sandon, he gravitated towards tlie
Coast and with tie aid of some ol his
old friends iu Nelaon, secured the appointment of government agent at
Jedway, Queen Cuarlotto Islands. So
well haa he discharged Mb duties that
I learn that he is slated for tho position of gold commissioner of tlie
islands and will probably take ollice
before tbe end ol the year. It is
many years since 1 have heard from
him aud a recent letter waB welcome
indeed. It was accompanied hy local
papers and, after Bcanning them over
I found lhat his duties are se multitudinous as they were in tho earlier
days. Many times have I helped him
in hia duties there and once I was
pressed by him into service to tuke a
dead body from the purling waters
ol Seaton creek at Throe Forks. The
Jedway papers contain an account nl
hia iiHiciiit.inn as master ol ceremonies
at a funeral and 1 presume that tie is
Btill father confessor for the ontire
district, just as lie waa lor many yeaiB
in Sandon. ile iH a line fellow, honesi
ns the day is long, and above all, loyal
to his Irionds, and it ie my hope and
the hope of mine thai diimc fortune
will continue to smile upon him in Ids
island home, He will wear his honors
whatever thoy may be, with niodeHty,
just as lie did in those boom days mid
the snow-clod peaks of tbe majestic
folkirkB, whore both he and I enjoyed
our first dreuiiiB ol opulence."

THE POULTRY YARD
Tbe Value of Skim Milk as
-Results of a Test
The lollowing bulletin issued by the
New York Experimental Station at
GenevH, N Y , j-ivea some valuable
information in regard tu the use ut a
by-product of many a rancher. These
results will Biirely cut down the milk
ration ot "piggy" at the price to be
obtained for broilers here.
SKIM    MILK   PROPERLY   USEO
" To learn whether skimmilk could
be freely utilized (or poultry feeding
without ill effect, ninny chicks have
grown to maturity with this only for
drink. None were sickly and the lew
hisses were accidental. Unusually
early und full feathering, especially
among Asiatics, wns attributed to the
free use of the skim milk in tba ration.
" To get information us to the
possibility of feeding it tu chicks ub
profitably ub to ciilves and pigs, t.wu
luts of tbe ohioks wore fed in confinement where all the (ood could be
accounted fnr. Except lor the cloee
confinement they were reared by
ordinary farm methods nnd were
brooded by hens so long us necessary,
" The Bweet skim milk constituted
on the average about three fourths
of the total food. For the whole time
that the feeding trial covered, one
pound increase in live weight was
made fur every 'AA pounils ol dry
matter in tlie food, very slightly less
by one lot and very slightly more hy
the other. Allowing lor the gain in
weight made by the hens while they
were kept by the chickH, the figure
would be reduced to li 2 pounds for
each lot. The result compared very
favorably witb ihe showing made by
other farm animals of lower market
values per pound thnn  poultry.
" Chicks averaging 2 I pounds in
weight at from ten and one-half to
eleven and one-hall weeks nf age were
grown ut acoBt for fond of 5 8 centB
per pound in one instance and of 5.4
cents per pound in the other, a cost
very considerably below the market
value of the poultry. While the foods
and products have fluctuated considerably in price since then there has
been no occasion to modify thu conclusion then made, thai some ol the
akim milk of the farm could be profitably tiaed lor growing chicks."
Canadian Art Souvenir
Mre. Arthur Spragge iB well known
in the mountains by her long residence in B. 0., her annual visits to
Golden, as we'd as by her efforts to
advance the iutereBts ot the province
by brush and pen.
This summer she hua a new enterprise in hand, wl ich she has undertaken owing to the success her Canadian mountain calendars met with
laBt Xmas. Ol these upwards of 100
ol tlie 150 she could puint were Bold
in Toronto alone, dozens being sent to
England as 11 new attractive [nature
0! the season's greetings.
She has now brought out a Canadian
Art Souvenir in the form ol larger
sketches Inch upright and oblong in
frames designed by her, bearing the
national emblems ol the Beaver and
Maple Leal in a charming decorative
and appropriate dcBigu.
Mra. Spragge sold all those she hud
io Toronto belore she left and had
orders for more; sho lias distributed
many among the C.P.K. mountain
hotels. Mr. Buckham has two on
view and several more will go to Vaucouver and Victoria.
The Toronto Globe of July lird
produced one sketch "In the Heart of
the Selkirks" in its Saturday illustrated supplement, and another in the
Daily Globe ol June 23rd, "Sconea in
ihe Mountains." The pictures on
view at Win. Tyrell it Co.'s art rooms,
ll, King Street, East, have heen added
to by the brush of Mrs. Spragge, while
at 17 Wilcnck's street. They are a
Canadian art aoiivenir aeries and at-
Iriiclud considerable attention. The
Beetles consisted uf 11 pictures depicting ihe Rooky and Selkirk mountain)
