Suggested   General Supt.
Meets Civic Committee
F. W. Peters, general superintendent of the Hritish Columbia division
ot tho Canadian Pacific railway, with

trict No. 1, held a conference tbis

in which a readjustment of the contract for power and «a»-ater between
the city nnd thc railway company
was discussed.
The advantages of Revelstoke as a
tourist centre were also incidentally
discussed. Mr. McKay declared that
he believed Revelstoke was one ot the
most attractive centres on the line
from n tourist standpoint in view of
the many side trips available, but
that thc present was not a favorable
time to urge upon the companv any
new undertakings for the accommodation of tourists. H» thought, that the
city should prepare for the equipment
of tourists and mentioned saddles
and guides us among the requisites.
In the event of a new Canadian Pacific railway hotel being built he
said that personally be believed that
a site near the recreation grounds
would be the most desirable.
Mr. Peters remarked that next year
he expected that a decided increase
In the tourist traffic would be noticeable on account of the San Francisco
exhibition and the opening .of the Pa-
i.ama canal.
This afternoon Mr. Peters with A.
E. Stevens, assistant general superintendent, will meet the medical staff
and directors of the Queen Victorlu

Dear 1al* —Just a line to let you
know we , -rived in the Old Country
O.K. ait-r i very long nnd tiresome
journey, lasi;"? thret weeks.
i Well I found thr old C Ototrv nuite
calm and and collecu.' under tic-
severe strain which is being •,■'■* upon
her, and it is quite a sight to <.^e
thousands of men, wearing arm bunds
instead of uniforms.
You  will  be interested  to bear     I
lave  ioin»d the  R.F.A., and  th  t
have started with     thc   runk of sergeant so it is now up to   me to flght
my way up or fall.
Well from latest reports I see the
"Huns" are getting a little more
than tbey bargained for around
Calais and I really think the time is
not far distant when they will be
completely driven out of France and
Belgium. There are some terrible cases here of Germun brutality, one
man's both eyes gone tongue cut
out and both bunds cut off, another
with his eyes put out and all m.inner
of outraged women and children, Belgians of course, nn.l then we hnve a
German camp a couple of miles away
they look quite happy "poor devils."

authentic Information, Bo good bye

Germans are far less able to endure

If the Western German papers which
have been publishing pro-German articles and articles with a seditious

to incite feeling against Great Britain would be followed by suppression. There has been considerable

The announcement that four thousand tive hundred dollars will be expended by the Dominion government
this winter on protection of the bank
ot the Columbia river is particularly
good news at the, present time, and
much gratification will bo felt at
the success that Mr. R. F. Green has
met with in his eflorts to convince
the t-.A-ernmcnt of the necessity of
undertaking the work  without delay.
The successful result of Mr. Green's

Following the opening of the British House, Mr. Asquith made a
strong defence of his government
against the attacks that have' been
made upon it, and on Mr. Churchill,
especially, for the steps taken to
help Antwerp. He made'it tWar that
the whole cabinet, including Lord
Kitchener, assumed full responsibility
for the Admiralty's action. Evidently the government was not in a position to render very effective aid, but
the call from the Belgian authorities
was such that the best available
lorces had to be sent. Thc character
ol the expedition is indicated bv this

"They were brand-new soldiers,
some of them, bovs from the London
streets who had answered the thrilling posters and signs, 'Your Kinc
and Country Need You,' and been
sent on this ill-fated expedition for
their first sight of war. The London
papers are talking about it as I am
writing this—how this handful ol
nine thousand men, part ot them recruits, who scarcely knew one end of
,i rifle from another, were flung across
the channel on Sunday n'ght ' and
rushed 'in to the front to be shot nt
and rushed bark again. 1 did not
know this then, but wondered if this
was what tbey had dreamed of—Hu.Uat
ting helplessly in a ditch until another order came to retire—when they
swung through the London streets

Manchester Guardian: Above • all,
there is the Immense satisfnctorlness
o( t'.Hii. Botha's appointment as a
symbol of the un'ity and strength of
an empire decently and humanely
ruled. To German critics this evidently continues to be an insoluble
and1 amazing; conundrum. Some foreign observers couici never understand
how it was that Wellington did not
seize the throne of Englnnd after
Waterloo. The loyalty ot Gen. Botha,
and of the Boers generally, has the
Bame enduring power to aBtonish the
German presB and, probably, the German government.
Montreal News: The shrewd businessman, during trade dullness or
hard times, when he is in sore straits
will bring his affairs into thc greatest possible economy and |system, im.

to his advertising, cover all evidences
of weakness, or his credit is question
ed, if he really Is wcjik, he is in imminent dancer ongoing to pieces.
When everybody is talking "hard
times," the shrewd man closes his
ears nnd turns his attention stri'tlv
to business to work, to keener study
of his conditions, to sane and substantial pushing, to everything which
keep him from succumbing to the
theory of hard times. Persistency ol
purpose is a power at all times cf
distress and doubt. It generates confidence in the man himself arid creates it In others. Everybody believes in
the determined, undaunted man.
Chicago Tribune: Out in Iowa,
where farm land is at a premium, a
champion of the disappearing wild
flowers has arisen. Frank C. Pellet
sees with regret the passing of un-
plowcd tracts on which at one time
blossomed in all their beauty the
varied flora indigenous to American
soil. His plea will not he read without response. We awake almost too
late to th» fact that our wild Wirds

Reinforcing   of  Pavement on
Recently Excavated Streets
—Wire Fence Used
An innovation in thc construction
of permanent, pavements haB been
adopted on a Bectlon of roadway recently laid ln an eastern city. The
policy of the city's engineering department had heen to lay all underground services—such as sewers and
water and gas mains oue year', previous to the laying of thc pavement,
to allow thc filling in of the excavations to Ik come fully settled and to
give a firm foundation.
To provide work for the unemployed it was decided to lay the pavement on a street shortly after the
construction of the underground services which included a sewer in the
centre of the street.
1<u  the     construction     of  the new
pavement,  after The    excavation      of
tlie full width of    the roadway     had!
been completed, a trench six     Inches'
deep and  four feet wide was     taken |
out in  the    centre of the    roadway. I
ln laying the     concrete     this centre
trench was first filled to thc depth of ]
six inches. Laid an top of this     and
embedded between the two layers   of,
concrete was a reinforcement of fence
wire of the full     width of the lower j
panel of concrete.    This extra   depth |
of reinforced concrete, extending    bc-!
yond  thc edges of thc sewer excava- j
tion, acts as a bridge, and precludes

Return to Normal Transportation Conditions and Large
Shipments Expected
A feeling of optimism, in comparison with the depression of the past
few weoks, is becoming apparent
among those identified with the lumber industry of Uritish Columbia.
With thc capture of thc German
cruiser Emden, which has removed a
serious mennce to trading vessels in
thc Indian seas, nnd thc announcement by thc.Admiralty that strong
measures are being taken against the
Herman Meet last heard ot on thc
Western coast ol South America, thc
managements of thc large provincial
mills are beginning to look lorwurd
to an early revival of business. Already the Genoa Bay plant, which is
■situated a short distance from Duncan has reopened, and others are expected to do so shortly. Several
large loreign orders have been placed
with Vancouver Island concernB and
the situation is Considered appreciably brighter than it was some days
Yesterday an American Capitalist,
who is prominently and actively connected with one of tbe largest of thc
island's mills stated that the prospect had improved materially. HiB
particular compuny has now at tide
water about ton million feet in logs.
Actual logging operations have not
been under way since a short time
after the outbreak of hostilities.
Plans (now are being considered, however, for the resuming of business.
The chiel difficulty with which the
merchants have had to contend, it is
pointed out, has been that of transportation. The knowledge that there
were belligerent war vessels on the
high seas, and that cargoes ran thc
chance of seizure has made the rates
of insurance excessive and so handicapped trade that, it has heen impossible to continue. Now that there
is un immediate prospect of this
pressure bcin.j removed thc authority
referred to is of the opinion that the
industry may be expected to developed marked actibity. ,
New markets, it is said, arc likely
to be available as soon aB the trndc
conditions arc anything like normal.
That to which the companies are
looking to particularly is thut of the
Eastern United States. The Influence
of the opening of thc Panama canal,
it is bel'levedj will be the means ol
stimulating the shipment of thc natural products of the northwest to
these centres.

in a lawsuit last fall, with a terrific
scrap  for control.  When  it appeared
as if Caldwell might be laid low,   a

' ranged  whereby  Moyie,   who  held   a

lump sum of    approximately ¥37,000.
This amount Caldwell set     out     to
raise, as it   was a good deal,     aud
one which would result in    the   saving of the     property     to thc   shareholders,  as well as his own mutton.

The popular idea that war causes
a large consumption of leud is an
error, according to a well posted
mining man. This impression arises
Irom the idea that lead enters largely into the composition of bullets.
The modern military rifle, however,
is made up mostly of steel and nickel, with very little lead, and shrapnel is made of iron. In different
countries the proportion of lead used
in the manufacture of a mo- th rille
bullet varies, but the hated dum-dum
is about the only bullet that carries
a majority of 'its weight in lead. In
times of peace, according to this
authority, lead has its best innings,
and at the times of greatest prosperity and development lead reaches
its highest price. About 70 per cent
of the lead product of the world is
used in the manufacture of paint, so
that in times of depression and uncertainty, as now exists, palint ia
not used to any extent, which naturally causes a falling ofl in the demand for lead. After the war, there
will be quite likely a rush to catch
up for past neglect, which together
with the requirements for repairs of
ruined cities and buildings may cause
lead prices to advance to a high

Standard mine is to the north of
Rocher de Boule about 10 miles, and

No public work that, has been undertaken by the dominion government

large gang of men are at work under
the superintendence of W. H. Stevens.
The poles are all set for a long distance past Chase Including up to
Adams Lake, and the wire for this
district has arrived at Pritchard and
Chase. The work is being carried
through promptly, and incidently a
number of the bome-steaders in the
district has received a benefit by being employed on contract for supply
and delivery of the poles needed
along the route. With a local exchange <it Chacc (which may be installed in the near future) and connection with most of the outlying
districts, the system should be of
