Mrs.  Harvey   Passes   Away
on Tuesday the 24th Inst.
We regret to announce tho sad
intelligence of the death of Mrs.
Rebecca S. Harvey, ^he wife of Mr.
Thomas Harvey, of this city. The
deceased, who was 06 years of age, has
been residing iu Revelstoke for a
number of years, being a faithful
attendant of St. Peter's church, and
jusl prior to her death had been suffering from serious internal complaints.
Mrs Harvey was pu', under an operation yesterday morning but succumbed
later, never really rallying.
Considerable sympathy is felt generally for the bereaved husband, who
has for a number of years been em
ployed in or near the city, and who is
broken down at his sad loss. The
funeral will take place tomorrow after
noou at two o'clock from the residence
on Third street, for St. Peter's church.
The deceased was a well known
tigure in cur midst and ,the breaking
up of the home of this aged couple is
a sad blow to the husband left behind.
The .Maii.-Hkkai.ii joins with Mr.
Harvey's many friends in met.ages of
condolence for his lereavement.
Rebekah   Lodge  Holds   Successful Function
The shirt waist dance under the
auspices of Rebekah Lodge, No. 21,
held in the opera bouse on Friday,
Nov. 20th, was a marked success, both
in the matter of attendance and enjoyment while in progress. The hall
had received special attention, the
decorations being artistic and elaborate. Prominent over the stage were
displayed the "links" the emblem of
the Order, with its colors. The general scheme was a credit to those who
arranged the decorations. The independent Band was in fine form and
provided first rate music. Refreshments were served at midnight and
were of a nature that pleased everybody. The dance was perhaps one of
the mod popular events of the season
and the Rebekahs have every reason
to congratulate themselves on their

Final Debates.—Next Meeting at Chilliwack.
Diirin,' 'lie afternoon session iiii
Thursday, .uv. lOtb, ol tlm Sohool
Trustees Convention, Dr, Robinson
Supt. ol Education, was introduced to
the delegates. In addressing the
convention be snid Hint ho did not
wish to hamper the disoussion by his
presence as u Covernment offiolal.
He referred to the free text, books
staling that the Government had
tried to he lair to all. In touching
on the salaries of teachers he pointed
out that it was the business uf trustees who should pay tlieir teachers
well and increase tlieir pay when
necessary. He said he was glad that
B. 0. as a whole hud received the new
School Act well which wis (or the
advancement of i dticutional  interests.
A vote of thanks wns passe 1 to Dr.
Robinson for his address who then
stilted that the number of tch ol inspectors would be increased.
A long discussion then arose over
the Hug qui si inu.
Moved by Maxwell Smith and seconded by R. C. Hodgson (on behalf of
the joint kchool beards of Itirnaby,
South Vanoouver, Richmond and
Point Grey.
" Resolved that the Bohool trustees
of British Columbia in convention
assembled do hereby record tlieir
strong disapproval of the action of the
Minister of Education in ignoring the
repeated requestB of this Association
and individual boards to make the
Hying of the Canadian ensign over the
public schools of this ptovince obligatory;
And, whereas, his orders to trustees
and teachers dated at Victoria, July
1908, to fly the Union Jack, was in
direct opposition to their requests
and tantamount to ordering down the
Canadian ensign which "uud already
been hoisted br a number of the
boards of school trustees;
Bo it therefore further resolved thai
this convention respectfully requestB
tbe Minister of Education to withdraw the orders to trustees and teachers dated July, 1908."
Mr. Smith, ic moving tbis resolution, said:
" In speaking to this resolution,
when we refer to the Minister of Education for British Columbia and
criticize his ollicial acts, it must be
distinctly undersiood that we are not
throwing any bricks at the genial Dr.
Young as an individual.
And when we say thut the Canadian
ensign has a status both on land and
sea and is calculated to promote a
healthy, patriotic Canadian sentiment
in the minds of the rising generation
when flown from the llngstutl's ol the
public schools, you must hear iu mind
that the grand old Union Jack is not
on trial and needs no defence.
The plain Union Jack has its place
as symbolising the union of three
kingdom!) ol England, Ireland and
Scotland, which has meant su much
to the cause of civilization mid the
promotion of peace in the world, and
the Canadian ensign has its place us
symbolizing the union of the various
provinces of British North America
into one grand federation under the
protection and guidance of the Mother
country; an example tu the world of a
nation born in peace.

In dealing with voice ol public
sentiment in this matter he suid that
the wishes ol the people must be considered and should not go unheeded,
and the Canadian emblem cannot be
done away with. He cited the fact
that the British admiralty had recog
ni/.i'd the Canadian ensign as the
flag of Canada at the luneral ol the
late M. Prclontaine. He pointed out
that the order came from the minister
of education and not from an order-

Advocate Abolition of the Ward
System in Revelstoke
A well attended meeting of the Hevelstoke Trades and Labor Council wus
held iu the eily hull OU Sulunity
evening, Presidont F, I!. Mitohell In
the cliuir.
The inulls council me preparing to
take un active   inlerc.t in the coming
munioipal elections, and an Important
disoussion took place in regard tn the
sdvisablliy ol ah dialling the present
waul system, This would mean thai
instead of each waul eliding iwn representatives, as at present, to ttieal-
ilrrniiinie, hoard, that six aldermen
would be electud by lho city as a
The chief arguments against I lac
present system aro the inequality ul
representation, sud the prevalence uf
sectionalism. For instance, a ward
with, say, one hundred residents, has
the same voice in tlie administration
of the city's affairs, as the ward with
five or Bix times that population,
Again, by electing men to represent
the whole city, instead of a portion
thereof, thejjaeotional feeling, which iB
so evident ut times, would be eliminated.
During the discussion it was pointed
out that, the city oi Kamloops had
adopted thi- system three or four
years ago, and it was found to work
most satisfactorily.
After full discussion it was decided
that the Trades and Labor Council of
Revelstoke put itself on record as
being in favor of ihe abolition of tbe
ward system, believing it to he in the
best interests of the city, and that an
effort be made at once to bring this
In order to make suoh a change it
will be necessary to present a petition
to the cily council, bearing the signatures of property owners representing
u majority of the total assessed value
uf the city. Upon this lieing done it
will be up to the council tu introduce
and pass the necessary bylaw making
the change.
Petiiions are being circulated this
week by a co hinittei of the trades
council in order to obtain the mces

Revelstoke Merchants Preparing for the Holidays
Oue month from to-day will be
Xmas Day. The merchants of Revelstoke this year are looking for good
times and steady Xmas trade, While
wo understand ii is not the intention
to cany large stocks this year, the
quality andjehoice will be everything
to be desired. Revelatoke has always
been considered a first-clans shipping
centre, because the merchants huve
always made it a point tu have the
guilds .in bund ihut people want at
holiday season. It pays to buy from
your home merchant because you can
actually see the goods you are purchasing which ii nut the case when
gouds ure ordered ' from a catalogue
house,and besides in most cases tie
co t is just as low as there is no
I'Xptessor duty to pay. Tlie Kevelstoke inerehauts are not afraid to buy
good goods and it is sale to say that
this Christmas no better stuck will be
fuiind between Winnipeg un.d V-
oouver than those that will bu s*.r.....i
by the local merchants.

Bystem, much can be said in favor
oi both but it is a difficult matter,
now that tbe ward system has been
in force so long in Ueve'stoke. to
see just how the public will lake it.
If we could be certain that all this
idiotic and harmful cliquisni and
sectionalism, now so rampant in
this city would be eliminated by-
doing away with wards, then by all
means let us huve the change.
Wards are invariably jealous oi
each other and the wants of one
seem to be the wants of all. Revelstoke is a diliicult city to administer and were she more compact
then wards aud their accompanying discords could perhaps be
done away with. Where public
works are concerned friction among
One feature in connection with
the B. C. School Trustees' Convention held in this city last week was
the fact that there was a decided
tendency among the delegates to
allow themselves to be swayed by
politicalinlert'sts. Those present
who were connected with the education deportment in nn indirect way
naturally ul luu oil their thoughts
anil expressions to follow along
the lines set by the provincial government. It must not be understood that in calling attention to
this fact anything derogatory to
the department in tbe matter of
furthering education is intended,
but those who followed the deliberations of the convention could
not help but notice that the presence
of ollicial and semi-official members of the education department
of the province considerably influenced the general feeling of the
convention. We would take it that
a meeting cf school trustees should
be confined only to trustees and
while the co-operation of officials
act as a means of information and
advice to trustees in their work,
yet at lhe same time, it is hardly
likely that these ollicials will
allow anything to go against the
interests of the department. Trustees should deliberate, unhampered
by any political bias, for the good
of their association and for the
welfare of teachers, school children

Moving Pictures of B.C. Industries Well Received at London
A novel and up-to-date form of advertisement of British Columbia is
daily to be seen at the Crystal Palace
near Loudon, England, a resort which,
as all who have visited the metropolis
know is visited daily bv an immense
crowd of sightseers. The advertisement consists of moving pictuios
showing British Columbia scenes ae
well as many glimpses of our leading
hulls-tries in o eration.
Omit Tatlow, in a letter to the
Premier of this province, written from
England, states that the pictures are
very good nnd meeting with immense
It is generally considered both an
effective and an up-to-date way of
advertising the country, and gives tlie
bomestaying Englishman a better idea
of what British Columbia is really
like than he could ever gain, except
by coming out in person, which it is
hoped that a great many of them will
do. Altogether tbe experiment seems
to be an unqualified success, and after
the engagement at the Crystal Palace
i« over the pictures will be exhibited
at the chief London music halls.

Revelstoke Not Represented
Kilittir Maii.-IIkimM).
Dear Sir: At the Birmington Croat
Annual Chrysanthemum Show,opened
here today, there is a huge British
Columbia government apple exhibit of
some hundreds of hox of tho luscious
fruit from different parts of the prov
Inoe, and I regret to say that not one
single box bearB the name of a Revelatoke grower.
From timo to time you have advocated in the columns of the MAIL-
HERALD the. necessity and desirability
of advertising the advantages of Revelstoko from an immigrant's point of
of view; and as the majority of emi
grants come from this country itseenit
to me highly desirable that something
from the town should be exhibited
from time to time as occasion arises.
As an old Revelstoke inhabitant 1
confess it hurt my prido to eee| such a
thriving town unrepresented, and 1
am writing this solely to point out to
the people of Revelstoke that to obtain
tbeir share of the right kind of immigrant thev must make known their
advantages on this side of  the  water.
I might mention that Barrows, the
leading provision merchants in Birmingham, have purchased every single
British Columbia apple exhibited.
Apologising for encroaching on your
valuable space, I remain dear sirs,
Your ooedieut servant,

A Slight Discrepancy
Eilitur M.ui.-Hcuai.Ij:
Dear Sir: Will yuu kindly note a
slight discrepancy which appears in
your issue ot the 21st inst., in your
report of subjects discussed at the
recent Trustees Convention.
In your condensed reference to my
remarks on the subject of " How the
High School curriculum can he made
more practical," you u ade it appear
that 1 practically depreciated the entire results of all high schools other
than those conducted iu large centres,
whereas the trend of my statements
was that the average high school curriculum, throughout the province was
not commensurate, from a practical
average occupation standpoint, with
the coat in money, timo and energy
incidental to it; and in this respect
the larger cities bad an advantage over
tbe smaller places, where high schools
are conducted on the departmental
curriculum only, in being able to introduce and maintain specialties such
as book-keeping, typewriting, stenography, etc., pruticiency in which is in
daily demand in a large percentage of
the occupations in which our high
school pupils will find themselves on
leaving their studies to tako their
place in the business world.
Yours truly,
