When Miles Custer opened the bar
ol the Selkirk hotel on Thursday

register bad been emptied during the

It Is believed that the robbers possessed a key of the door as nothing
was broken and S. Cotes the night

cash register was not locked.
The robbery at the Central hotel
was very similar. When Oscar Abra-
hameon opened the bar yesterday

Public Meeting to Form Branch
of Patriotic League—Ready
Response Made
A public meeting will be held on
Wcdnsday at H p.m. in the Musonic
hall (or tbe purpose of forming u
brunch of tbe Pntriotic leugue.
The proposal to form a branch of
thc league has met with hearty approval and R. Gordon, government
agent who has taken steps to call
the mpcting for the purpose of forming the branch and to appoint u
committee has been given many assurances of financial support.
The civil servants    at    the     court
lu.use  have    already    subscribed  liberally in anticipation of thc    league
being formed in the city.  Every . employee of thc provincial    government
ut  the  court  bouse      has  guaranteed
to devote one day's pny a month to
the purpos.' of tbe league so long as
the war lasts,  and  this subscription
. is   to   apply    to    last     month     as
. well as    for     October     und     future
I months. At thc public    schools simi-
| lar subscription  lists are being sign

The money subscribed will bo     dc-

Council Again Decides to Postpone Consideration—Time
Not Favorable
After the usual discussion at tho
meeting of the city council last night
consideration of the market site bylaw wub postponed uutll the next
meeting ol the council.
Aid. Needham said that ho did not
wish to oppose a market but he felt
sure that the people would not paBS
the bylaw at the present time. He
believed that thcre was room for a
murket near the police station and
he recommended trying out the market on tbat site. He did not think
that the property it was proposed to
buy would increase in price.
Aid. Smythe thought that enough
money had been spent by the city
this year. He believed tbat there was
plenty of room for a market at the
police station and that thc tool
shed could bc converted into a market at small expense.
Aid. Pradolini thought that it was
too late for a market this year. He
recommended getting an option on
the property until next year.
The muyor thought tbe city might
as well spend the money on submitting thc bylaw as on securing an
option. Aid. Bell believed that the
property oflered between Second and
Third streets was cheap and that the
city should look to the luture. Now
was thc time to buy.
The mayor mentioned that one advantage of thc market was thut it'
would help white poople to compete
with Chinamen as the white men
would not peddle produco.
Aid Smythe seconded by Aid. Needham, moved that the project be left
until next year. Aid. Pradolini and
Aid Bell voted against and Aid. McSorley and Aid. Bourne did not vote.
Aftc. further discussion during
which Aid. McSorley said that be
did not think the bylaw would pass
at the present time and the cSty
clerk remarked that if the by-law
were defeated this year it would be
illegal to submit It again for 12
months, It was decided to leave the
bylaw for further consideration at
thc next meeting so tbat the aldermen may have an opportunity ol
discovering tho Bentiment of the
people. Aid. Bourne favored a market Bite, but did not think that the
present was a suitable time to submit the bylaw.
Council Makes Grant
to Agricultural Society
Extension of Time Granted for Completion of Paving
Contract—Cleaning Question Discussed Compromise Reached on Payment of Extras on Sidewalk
The city council last night decided
to make the usual grant to the Ro-
velstoke agricultural society. Exten-
tion of time wub allowed for completion  of  tho paving contract.
T. E. L. Taylor on behalf of the
Revelstoke agricultural association,
asked that the council make the usual grant. He explained that the association had gone to considerable
espense before it had been decided to
cancel the fair and that practically
every dollar had been spent in the
city. The coundil unanimously made
the grant which is $250.
J. H. Shewry on behalf of the
Warren Construction company asked
ior an extension of time for completion of the pavement contract to
November 1. He explained that the
company had been operating under
difficulties and that he hoped to have
the contract completed before November. Tbe request was granted,
provided that the interests of the
city were protected. Mr 8hewry said
that he would guarantee to complete
the work and had made preparations to meet weather conditions by
buying canvas to keep dry thc gravel and to cover tho street, if necessary.
Considerable discussion took place
regarding extras on thc sidewalk contract. An account for replacing private sidewalks that it had been necessary to move on account of the
snow plow was passed and a compromise was made in respect to the
bill for expansion joints, this amount
being split, the council paying half
and     thc     contractor     half    of the
'amount, which was $116. Aid Needham seconded by Aid. Smythe, proposed paying for the pitch only, but
Aids.   McSorley,    Bell    and    Bourne
.voted for splitting the bill..
H. Laughcad wrote saying that the
city foreman had told him that   his
1 wages as sidewalk inspector would
be 50 centB an hour, and on motion
of Aid. Smythe seconded by Aid. Bell
the resolution passed at tbe last
meeting of tbe council setting hiB
wages at $4 a day was rescinded, the
council deciding     to     pay the $4.50
j which he demanded, Aid. Needham
Aid. Bell brought up the question
of cleaning the bilulithic pavement
and Aid.  Smythe vigorou^y     urged
, that the pavement be cleaned.     Tho
| mayor explained that the superintendent of construction wished to
leave the grit on the road until construction was completed. He would
then clean the roads, inspect tbem
and hand them over to the city In
perfect condition.
I Aid. Smythe said that some of the
alley ways were becoming filthy
again. He recommended prosecutions.
j    The question of the purchase of   a
I new sleigh and mackinaw coats     for
the fire brigade was referred to the
fire,  water aud light committee.
The plan of the subdivision of   the
, old Bowman mill site wbb again referred back for correction.
[ A request from G. Rossi tor a
sidewalk to his house at the corner
of TMrd and Benson streets was re-
lerred to the public works committee.

Opportunity for Mixed
arming Offered by War
The outbreak ol thc wur in Europe
and the consequent demand which Is
naturally to be expected for Increased cxportB of meats, finds Canada In
n very denuded condition as regards
live stock.
As a result of thc removal of the
American.tarifl on cattle a heavy
trade developed to the south, In
some districts in eastern Canada,
nearly everything has been shipped
out of the country, except dairy
tows. This export trade, together
with many farmers selling their calves for veal, can have but one result in Canada, viz: a greater scarcity of meat than at present exists,
15 | even in a normal market,
.jr, Tne meat industry In Canada
jij 'should not be allowed to dwindle—
35 rather, the production of hogB,

should be greatly increased. To obtain this increase does not mean that
farmers should devote their whole
attention to live stock. The majority
of farmers admit that with vcry little extra eflort and expense tbey
could increase by several head tbc
live stock on their farms without in
any way interfering with their present system of farming.
From reports to the commission of
conservation, present conditions     indicate a world-nHde scarcity    of   live
stock,  with little likelihood     of    an
overcrowded  market  for  manj   years
to come.  The opportunity for Canadian farmers is     therefore  apparent.
To take advantage of this,    farmers
Bhould save their heifer     calvos    to
produce more cattle, while tho others
i_f5 I may be turned ofl, not as veal but as

Animal production on the farm is
desirable because it increases the
fertility and crop-ruising ability ol
the Boil. Good prices are sure to be
obtained for any surplus which farmers will have to sell on account of
the inevitable shortage of supply resulting from war conditions ln
Europe, These two conditions should
be an Incentive to Canadian farmers

modern methods of feeding, will mako
increased  production  easily  possible.

R. M.Winslow, Provincial Horticulturist, Tells of Advertising Campaign
Apropos of the press dispatch from
Ottawa of a few days ago to the effect that the department of trade and(
commerce is proposing a Dominion-
wide advertising campaign to increase the consumption of apples
throughout Canada, it was ascertained from R. M. Wiuslow, provincial horticulturist, tbat British Columbia hus every reasan to be especially interested in this move on
the part of the authorities, aud
every determination to take full advantage of thc new situation.
Mr. Winslou explained that, owing
to the disruption of normal conditions as a result of the wai, the apple producers of the Dominion find
themselves deprived of their European markets, and tbis, unfortunately,
at a time when the crop is just being gathered. It is to meet this
crisis that the Ottawa Government
has, acted, and Mr. Winslow heartily
commends the promptitude shown in
this connection.
Europe, appreciating the quality of
Dominion-grown apples, bas been Importing them in very considerable
quantities, the exports to the United
Kingdom runn'ing 1,500,000 barrels a
year. Measured in boxes, the form of
packing In British Columbia, the
figures would be much larger. In addition, 75 per cent of all the apples
evaporated huve been exported to
Germany, AusWia-Hungary aud other
countriea in continental Europe.
Tbc wnr has resulted in a seri'jus
ci itailmcnt of the murket for these
appleB in Great Britain, and it has
also resulted In jeopardizing for this
year the trade iu evaporated apples,
for Germany was the clearing house
for most of that trade. The Hon.
Maitir Burrell, co-operating with Sir
George Foster, minister of trade and
commerce, has launched an advertising campaign iu ^rdt.- to increase the
demand for ap;des in the home market. This campaign is to be effective
Irom the Atlanti' to the I'acinc, and
already expert advertisement wrltorB
are at work. Their eflorts will be
directed alonp iwc lines: First, to
point out the splendid nutritive value
of apples as nu article of diet; second, the superior qualities of the
Domini jn-grown apples, with a plea
that national patriotism demands
that at this time preference should be
given to the home-grown product.
Mr.  Winslow  explains    that,  inas-
to protect the home market    for the
home-grown article.
Provincial Campaign
In respect to the position of British Columbia, Mr. Winslow is of the
opinion that, Provincial growers will,
when they understand the situation,
te disposed to join hands with the
provincial government in a special
advertising campaign which will be
supplementary to thc effort of the
dominion government. There are
special reasons in his judgment why
this should be done. In the past advertisements issued by eastern growers have always emphasized the superlative qualities of the "Canadian"
apple. Should thiB policy be followed
Un the present instance by the federal
government, BritiBh Columbia would
be placod at a disadvantage, for the
reason that the term "Canadian" is
not need when allusion is made to
British Columbia apples. The latter
stand in a class by themselves, no
doubt for their pre-eminent superiority. But it can be seen that unless
the proper precautionary measures
are taken consumers in thc other
provinces might be placed under a
misapprehension, if they were told
that they should buy only "Canadian" apples.
Mr. Winslow directs attention to
another point. Except to some small
extent in Ontario, thc apples of the
eastern provinces arc all packed in
barrels. BritiBh Columbia uses boxes.
By using the words "Canadian" and
'"barrels" in thc advertisements issued by the authority of tho Ottawa
government, it is clear that the
BritiBh Columbia product might easily he placed at a disadvantage in
. ie m'ind of the consumer.
Mr. Winslow is taking these points
up with D. Jobiison, dominion
fruit commissioner, and is very hopeful of an arrangement being made
satisfactory to the growers of British Columbia. British Columbia fruit
bas won the highest awards consiB- ,
teiitly for many years at such great
exhibitions ub the National Apple
Show o( Spokane, located in the
heart of one of the great apple-grow- I
ing districts of the United States;
the National Exhibition at Toronto,
und at various world exhibitions in
Great Britain. All that the British
Columbia apple wants is a "fair I
field and no favor."

much as the conditions in Europe at
the present moment allect the grower * on the other side of the line to
the same extent as the Canadian
producer, it will be seen that some
special effort will have to be directed
Because tbo British board of trade
has been apprised that German merchants still are disposing ot sugar
through Holland notwithstanding
thc prohibition ol itB export by the
government of the Netherlands, the
English government has lorbidden the
importation of all sugar Irom Holland.

from Halifax every week this winter

housed in the exhibition grounds
through the winter.

Events Justifying Action of Provincial Government in Not
Declaring Moratorium
Much satisfaction is expressed in
financial and commercial circles nt
the fuct that British Columbia is iu
the fortunate position of not yet having had to resort to the principle of
the moratorium, this being apropos
of a London press cable setting out
that British financial circles would
view with alurm the introduction of
the system in western Canada, in
view ol the fact that much British
capital is invested in mortgages and
other securities. Tho general feeling
throughout the province, as far aB it
can bc ascertained, is that the policy
enunciated by the Premier, Sir Richard McBrtde, a few days ago, is the
correct one to bc followed at the
present time. This is, in brief, that
while thc moratorium shall not just
now be invoked, the government shall
lulu- cognizance of any harsh and
needlessly aggressive actions against
debtors, and that, if the situation
demands it, legislation will tye Bought
to provide the remedy, such legislation to be retroactive in its scope.
Ae indicating that this declaration
on the part of the provincial government Is likely to prove adequate, it
may be mentioned that at Vancouver
following the policy of showing consideration to parties who are undergoing foreclosure, which Mr. Justice
Clement has put in force since the
declaration of war, His Lordship
gave several parties three months to
meet a final order, where ordinarily
thirty days are only given. In other
cases where an order nisi only was
being asked, His Lordship suggested
leniency to tbe applicants.
In one case in which an order of
foreclosure was demanded, the defendant had paid $3,700 on a W,800
purchase of land, and the solicitor
nsked for foreclosure within 30 days.
"Thirty says is all right in.good
times, but it is not enough today.
Besides thiB man bas got a substantial interest in this property. He
muBt have three months," declared
His Lordship.
"But. we have already shown him
leniency. Twice wc have agreed to
let him have time on his promise to
pay, and each time he has failed,"
argued the solicitor.
"That shows he is anxioUB to hold
the property and pay you ofl if he
c in raise the money. He. should have
three months," retorted the judge.
In another case where a defendant
had paid 81.C00 on a «-l,30o purchase,
an enquiry showed that he had only
been ln default since July of this
"That is u clear case for allowing
the defendant three months In which
to meet his obligations," said the
"I would feel like making the term
longer, only I am aware tbat ln
many of these eases to defer justioe
means hardship to the plaintifl who
has obligations to meet, just as to
grant justice means a hardship on
delendants. But I think all reasonable consideration should be shown
where a plaintifl has made substantial payments," said HiB Lordship
during the discussion of tbe ease.
In another case where three months
was allowed, the defendants hnd paid
81,"00 on a I3,1B0 purchase, nnd was
1340 and interest In arrears.
All of the above oases were In regard to agreements to purchase land,
ln 'hr case of mortgages which aro
threatened with foreclosure, tbcro Is
a statutory provision which allows a
defendant s\\ months between tho
tin.i' the order nisi is taken out and
acre -nits passed and thc time the
dial order for foreclosure is made.
It is announced by the Newcustlo

execute thc contract for supplying
tho Portuguese railways, the contract
bas reverted to the British colliers.

"A wonderlul wave of enthusiasm

said the Marquis ol Crewe, secretary
of state for India, in Parliament, a
few days since.
"Native Indian troopB will bc employed in the war ln Europe," is, in

In times ol peace everybody leels
at liberty to assume a possible revolution in India; separation of the

In times ol peace the empire is always more or less "doomed," according to thc statements of many
gloomladen British subjects.
But in time of war Low suddenly

he first came to the Fnirbnnka district, located a claim on tbe right
