Recommendation That System
ot Grading and Inspection
be Instituted
At the meeting of tho city council
on Monday a letter was received trom)
Dr. E.S.H. McLean saying that ho
bad accompanied the provincial
dairy inspector in u tour ol the dairies. He nad found that while most ol
the milk dealers attempted to keep
within the law one or two made little
attempts at cleanliness and were able
to urge as un excuse that there was
no local bylaw.
He suggested that the- council
should pass a bylaw to insure sanitary surroundings to dairies and
clean milk and he proposed that a
system of grading the various premises be introduced. This would Involve, he said, a monthly or semimonthly inspection by the health officer.
The letter will be considered at the
tt^xt regular meeting of the council.

Joseph Williams aud John Atkins
appeal ..al belore Police Magistrate
Hamilton on Monday evening charged with burglary. They were found
guilty Williams was sentenced to
four years in the penitentiary and
Atkins to ifix months hard labor. The
magistrate d-eclared that with the
aid of the police and of the hotel
keepers he was determined to rid tbe
town ol parasites of society and to
make Revelstoke a city to which laboring men might bring their savings without  Ic.-.i   of being  robbed.
Williams nad taken a room at one
of the city hotels in the name of
Brett, which he shared with Atkins.
During tbe night John Mulligan, another guest at the hotel was awakened by tri-Hn,: his trousers, which be
had piacd under his pillow, being
pulled away and he opened his eyes
to sec two men standing by his bed.
The men quickly left the room and
disappeared.
The police were summoned and suspicion fell upon Williams and Atkins
who in the meantime had thrown the
trousers belonging to Mulligan,
which contained a gold ring and
money, out ol thc window.
James Miller another gueBt at the
hotel Und also been lobbed of ?15.
This money was found on Williams
and identified by stains from a piece
■of bacon which Miller had been carrying in his pocket with the bills. In

Nominating Committee  is
Appointed ,to Select
Exeoutive
Inspiring Address Delivered
by Judge Forin—Meeting Enthusiastic
A Revelstoke branch ol the Canadian Patriotic fund was formally
created at an enthusiastic public
meeting held in thc MaBonic temple
last night. R Gordon was in the
chair and piloted the business so
that there was no undue lapse of
time and a feature of the meeting
was an inspiring patriotic address
by Judge Forin of Nelson which was
received with the heartiest applause
and musical honors. Judge Forin
promised thnt on his return from the
coaBt he would address a similar
meeting ln connection with the fund.
A nominating committee consisting
of H. McKinnon, mayor, J. M. McKay, R. Gordon, A. Pradolini, W. A.
Foote, Mrs T. Kilpatrick and Mrs.
S. G. RobWins was selected to appoint an executive committee representative ot all sections of the community which will proceed with the
collection of funds and all other nec-
cessary business. Mr. Gordon announced that already some 25 residents of Revelstoke had promised to
contribute one days pay a month
during the duration of the war and
that the fund in Revelstoke would
begin with a revenue of over $60 a
month. ;
Mr. Gordon in opening the meeting
read circulars defining the objects of
the fund, as published in Saturday's
Mail Herald. He then called upon B.
R. Atkins and Father MacKenzie to
address the meeting. Mr. Atkins said
that there was no doubt as to the
necessity of the work that the Fund
had undertaken. Up to the present he
believed that only two of the soldiers who had left Revelstoke for the
front had left dependants in need of
assistance. He had been Instructed to
collect donations from members of
the customs department in Revelstoke and its outposts and it was
possible that it might be better to
transfer the money to a branch of
the Fund in Revelstoke.
Father MacKenrie spoke of the importance of making the people realize the necessity of the work. He
thought the name of the Fund deceived many as to its object. Some
of the Italian residents of Revelstoke
had expressed to him their desire to
assist and he had advised them to
wait until an organization should be
created in the city. I
Judge Forin spoke of the ready response in Nelson and Trail at the
formation of the branches of the
Fund there. In Trail *s00 a month
was being subscribed for the relief of
the Belgians and the monthly subscriptions to the Putriotic Fund
would be 81900 a month. I
Speaking of the war he said that
the teacnings of Galilee had been
cast awav by the- Germans. The British would never submit to the flag
which bore the double headed vulture of Germany. Those who had not
something worth dying for had not a
great deal worth living for. The em-1
-aire would surprise the world with
the exhibition of Its generosity and
its resources. The Belgians had been
a friend to the British empire which
had promised to stand by them. The
empire would never go back on them,
lt would never break its word. If the
Germans broke througb one line of
defence there would be others behind it. He had himself worn the
iinlform for 15 years and be hoped
that the age limit would be raised
so that Mr. Atkins and himself could
go to the front before the British
flng should go down.
In Trail a Circular had been sent
to every man in town. One mBn who
worked with a shovel was contributing |3 a month to the Tatriotlc
Fund and i'2 u month to the Belgian
fund.Those who were enjoying three
square meals a day could do something even If thev could not go to
thc front. A steady contribution was
needed. No one could say how many
mim Canada would have at the front
hefore the war was over. She would
send half a million men if necessary.
The spirit of sacrifice was abroad
and the names of    those who contri-

Captain Benito Rienzi, in command
of a small licet of Venetian men-of-
war, is sent, to hold the island of
Cyprus against the onslaughts of
the Turkish squadrons, but after a
valiant defense is forced to give Way
and put back to Veuice for rc-in-
lorccments. His masterly retreat und
ins preservation of the fleet in the
face of such odds wins him almost as
much glory as a victorious battle
ivould have done, and he is complemented by the Doge and the
Council of Ten, the highest powers of
the republic.
These honors, however, are meaningless to Rienzi when he learns
that during his ahsenre his sweetheart, Biunca, hus been forced to
marry Count Orsini, a powerful
noMi . He meets her at their trysting
place, thc famous shrine of Our
Lady of the Waters, and there she
tells him that although her heart is

by Judge Forin—Meeting Enthusiastic
A Revelstoke branch of the Canadian Patriotic lund was formally
enthusiastic public
meeting held in the Masonic temple
last night. R Gordon was in the
chair and piloted the business so
that there was no undue lapse of
time and a feature of the meeting
! was an inspiring patriotic address
I hy Judge Forin of Nelson which was
received with the heartiest applause
and musical honors. Judge Forin
promised that on his return Irom the
coast he would address a similar
meeting in connection with the fund.
A nominating committee consisting
of H. McKinnon, mayor, J. M. McKay, R. Gordon, A. Pradolini, W. A.
Foote, Mrs T. Kilpatrick and Mrs.
S. G. RoblVins wns selected to appoint an executive committee representative ot all sections of the community which will proceed with the
collection of funds and all other nec-
cessary business. Mr. Gordon announced that already some 25 residents of Revelstoke had promised to
contribute one days pay a month
during the duration of the war and
Joseph Williams and John Atkins that the fund in Revelstoke would

guilty Williams was sentenced to

Atkins to stx months hard labor. The

Mr. Gordon in opening the meeting
read circulars defining the objects of
the fund, aB published in Saturday's
Mnil Herald. He then called upon B.
R. Atkins and Father MacKenzie to
address the meeting. Mr. Atkins said
that there was   no   doubt as to the
keepers he was determined to rid the  necessity „, the work lhat the   Fun
town of parasites   of society    and to
make  Revelstoke a city  to which laboring men  might bring their     sav-'
ings without fter of being robbed.
Williams nad taken a room at one
of tbe city hotels in the name of
Brett, which he shared with Atkins.
During the night John Mulligan, another guest at the hotel was awakened by feeding his trousers, which he
had placed under his pillow, being
pulled away and he opened hiB eyes
to sec two men standing by his bed. j
The men quickly left the room and
disappeared.
The police were summoned  and  BU3-
hud undertaken. Up to the present he
believed that only two of the soldiers who had left Revelstoke for tho
front had left dependants in need of
assistance. He had been instructed to
collect donations Ironi members of
the customs department in Revelstoke and its outposts and it was
possible that it might be better to
transfer the money to a branch of
the Fund in Revelstoke.
Father MacKenzie spoke of the importance of making the people realize the necessity of the work. He
thought the name of thc Fund deceived many as to its object.    Some
picion fell upon Williams and Atkins 0f the Italian residents of Revelstoke
who in the meantime had thrown the had expressed to him their desire to

James Miller another guest at the
hotel had also been robbed of 815.
This money was found on Williams

of bacon which Miller had been carrying in his pocket with the bills. In
a package ol tobacco in the possession of Williams was also found a
device for opening doors by turning
thc key when left in the door.

Judge Forin spoke of the ready response in Nelson and Trail at the
formation of the branches of the
Fund there. In Trail ^00 a month
was being subscribed for the relief of
the Belgians and the monthly subscriptions to the Patriotic Fund
would be 81500 a month. I
Speaking of the war he said that
the teacnings of Galilee had been
cast away by the Germans. The British would never submit to the flag
which bore the double headed vulture of Germany. Those who had not
something worth dying for had not a
great deal worth living for. The em-!
Mire wnnM surprise the world with
the exhibition of its generosity and
its resources. The Belgians hnd been
a friend to the British empire which
had promised to sta,nd by them. The

with several minor cases were disposed of this morning by Judge
Forin  Ln the county court.
In the case of Rex. vs J. C. Tapping, in which J. C. Tapping is
charged with do:ng grevious bodily
injury to Jerry O'Leary, by biting off
part of his car, there was no appearance on behalf of the Crown and
thc case was adjourned until October
2S. when Judge Forin will dismiss
the case if the Crown doeB not intimate that it proposes to continue
the prosecution,
G. S. McCarter, who appeared for
the defence, said that the Crown
evidently had uo intention of proceeding and he asked that the case b.e
dismissed.
His Honor said that he had no intimation that the Crown had dropped the case.
Mr McCarter said that this prosecution had been hanging over for a
long time and defendant's business
was Buttering.
The judge said that he thought defendant was getting off easily. It
looked as if th« case was going by
the board. He thought that he had
made a mistake in granting bail.
Mr. McCarter said thut the defence was ready.
Judge Forin replied that the defence had delayed in electing for trial
and the witnesses hnd now dispersed.
Time had oeen In favor of the. 'defence.
Mr. McCarter said that the defence
had not interfered with the witnesses.
He wished the witnesses were present
so that tbe court  might see them.
The judge said that he had seon
the witnesses and they had impressed
him favorably as respectable men.
The Crown should enter nolle
prosequi or go on with the
case. He would adjourn the case, allowing the same hail, until October

Time for Rebate on Taxes
Extended Until End of
November
At a special meeting of the city
council held on Monday evening the
bylaw arranging thc tinancing of bhe
cement sidewalks constructed this
year waB given its first, second and
third readings. I
The sidewalks are paid for by
means of 20 year "'i per cent bonds.
Thc total cost of the sidewalks is
$12,500, of which the city pays
$*179.'l and the owners >s*-7f»7. The
yearly rate is KU07.-27. The cost per
square foot is l'i cents with 10c. per
foot for edges. On First street the
cost per foot frontage will be 81.52
on Third street west Si.24 and on
other streets 81.14.
Several of the alderman expressed
the opinion that the sidewalks were
by far the cheapest ever constructed
for the city and the best.
A court of revision of the sidewalk
assessment will be held on November
13.
The advisability ol continuing the
bitulithic pavement on First street
to meet the pavement at the eu-
trnnce to the hospital wus discussed
and it was decided that the work
should be done at the general expense of the city, The estlimated cost
Is **S00.
The question was brought up by
thc mayor who said that most cities
made grants to their hospitals. Revelstoke got off cheaply. He thought
that an extension of the pavement
would much improve the approach to
the hospital and the appearance of
the building,
Aid. Bell concurred. He said that
it would be a disgrace to the city to
leave the work as it is at present.
•\H Needham also believed that the
work should be done.
Aid. McSorley thouegtit that the approach could be made almost equally
good by the use ol crushed rock.
Aid. Bourne jras of the opinion
that $800 was a good deal of money
to spend for work which would even
then be incomplete and no great improvement.
On a vote being taken, Aids. Bell,
Needham and Smythe voted for doing the work, Aid. McSorley voted
against and Aid. Bourne did not
vote. Aid. Pradolini was absent.
After the matter had been decided
a delegation consisting of A. McRae,
C. R. Macdonald, R. Gordon. W. A.
AnsPie, Rev. C. A. Procunier, A. B.
Kincaid, A.B. McClenegham, G.S. McCarter, and J.H. Lyon waited on the
council to urge thut the pavement
he undertaken. They were informed of
thc decision of the council and left in
high good humor after Mr. McRae
had expressed thc thanks of the hospital board to the council for Its
attitude toward the uospttal. As tbe
delegation left the room some of
tbem struck up "For They are Jolly
Good Follows" and Aid. Bourne remarked that it was seldom tbat he
heard the coundil referred to in such
terms.
The council decided unanimously to
extend the time for rebftte on taxes
for one month, until the end of November.
W. A. Gordon, city clerk, with the
mnyor will be the delegation from
the city at the convention of municipalities in Kamloops this wrek. The
meeting Is held on Thursday and Friday.
A communication was received from

INVITATION
TO BELGIANS
Suggestion   that    Letters   be
Placed in Pockets of Clothes
for Belgian Refugees
Thnt the people ol Revelstoke have
now an excellent opportunity of interesting the best class of settlers ia
the advantages ol British Columbia
was the opinion of a prominent business man expressed to the Mail-Herald on Monday.
He recommends tbat a letter setting forth the attractions of the
Revelstoke district and expressing a
h.»arty welcome to Belgians be placed
in the pockets of every article of
clothing sent to aid the Belgian
fugees, and he suggested that S.
Robbins, or some one who has
knowledge of the language and
country, mifeht draft a letter
publication in the Mail-Herald
that it might be copied by those who
are unable to write one themselves.
The Belgians, he said are Irugal
and industrious and the best of agriculturists and exact'y the kind of
settlers that British Columbia most
needs. Many o' them, be believed,
would never return to tbeir own
country and he thought that if their
attention wus drawn to the opportunities of the Revelstoke district
some might be induced to make their
homes in the neighborhood.

Thc president's address was as foi-
lows' ■
Gentlemen:—Iu presenting to you
the thirteenth annual report of the
Revelstoke hospitnl society, it will
only be necessnry to review the work
accomplished for the past year. Tiro
new hospital is now fully equipped
and quite Unished With the exception
of the grounds in front. This is now
boing done and thc Warren Construction company is laying a bithulitlc
pavement in the drive-way. This they
are very kindly doing at their own
expense, and without cost to the
society.
As will be seen from the treasurers
report the umount yet owing on the
building and furnishings is 128580.00.
Owing to the falling ofl Un revenue
from our contract patrons we have
not been able to reduce the umounts
vcry materially. The revenue from
paying patients in the hospital has
increased largely from last year, but
at the same time the expense of operating such a large institution has
also greatly increased. The Canadian
Pacific railway employees have withdrawn their contract with the Hospital society and formed a hospital
and medical association of their own
and pay their monthly lees direct to
it instead of to the society as formerly. It is as yet too early to determine just what effect this will
have on the revenue of the hospital.
4s the lumber companies have not
heen operating to any great extent
tho past year and have now closed
down, the revenue has not been very
great from that source and has now
practically ceased.
The medical superintendent's report
will show a large increase in patients treated and hospital days. I
The Alexandra hospital at Arrowhead has not been opened since we
had to close it in the early wHnter of
191*2.
The Chase hospitnl has been in operation right along, but nearly all
the revenue derived from there hus
been pnld in by the Adams River
Lumber Company, under contract for
their employees. As they bave now
censod operating for the winter we
will probably be obliged to close it
up also unless the citizens of Chase,
with whom we have been negotiating
can take it ofl our hands by purchase. We have oflered to allow them
to operate it at their own expense
for the winter unt'il arrangements
can be made for the purchase money.
The Kevelstoke Hospital society has
come to the conclusion that Chase is
too far away for us to operate the
hospital there satisfactorily.
The Ladles Hospital Guild arc taking every Interest in tbe hospital and.
doing a good nnd useful work.
Tho hospital staff are   all that can
lie desired and no complalntB   what-1
ever have been received.
In closing I desire to thank the
hoard of directors sitting with mo
for the interest they have taken ln
hospital nflnirs, and all the citizens
who have so kindly assisted ln making this Institution so popular, and
I sincerely trust tbat interest will
continue as owing to the war in
which our empire is now unfortunate- I
fy engaged and consequent heard
times the hospital will no doubt neod
all the assistance possible.

Ore hauling on a reduced scale
from the Union mine in Franklin
camp to Lynch creek will be resumed
in a few days. It is proposed to
keep three teams at this work all
winter, and probably two cars of ore
will be shipped monthly from Lynch
creek to the Trail smelter.
Henry Bretzlns, who returned on
Tuesday from the Bablne ran^e,
brought some splendid ore samples
Irom the Debenture group on which
he has done considerable work this
season. He is greatly pleased with
his showing. The Debenture is about
eight miles from the Cronln property
which has been developed considerably this season.—Hazelton Miner.
At the Trail smelter last week the
ore treated Irom mines iu tho Ainsworth and Slocan divisions was as
follows: Tons

Rambler-Cariboo    9-2

Whitewater      7(1
Reports of pilfering from camps on
the Slocan side ol the divide are
noted by thc Record. Blankets and
other parts ol the outfit were stolen
from the Hartney a week ago Sunday. Pilfering from other campB are
reported.
The overhauling of the big concentrator at the Cork-Province is now
underway, the mill crew from the
Molly Gibson having been hired Hn a
body to fix up and operate the mill
on the South Fork property. After
a preliminary overhauling the mill is
to be set to work, and any defects
tending to loss of values thereafter
corrected. It is believed a closer
separation can be effected by finer
grinding. W. Clifte is in charge of the
mill crew. Shipments will likely be
made, though it necessary, the output may be stacked up awaiting improved market conditions.
Mining men throughout the western states are assuming a very optimistic air as a result of the war
and the price it will have on metals.
Considerable attention is being paid
to silver and it is pointed out that
as soon as the atmosphere has cleared up the price of silver will rapidly
advance to sixty-five cents. One of
the big operators even ventured the
opinion that dollar silver was not
out of the question. All are agreed
that tbe price will advance to such
an extent that all the silver mines
will be re-opened and thut hundreds
of prospectors will take to the hills
in search of silver.
A lcadincr London lead merchant
says the war cannot last long because the world's supply ol lead is
Insufficient to maintain the supply
of bullets. If each mun in the field
fired only 100 rounds it would exhaust the present stock of lead. This
sounds encouraging to local lead producers and ibdicntes that sooner or
later the heavy metal must h'it rock
bottom and go up with a bang.
Word comes from Summit Camp
that Ernest Rice has struck a very
fine body of ore on his property
there. The ledge, so the report states
is -even feet in width, in which there
is a six incn seam of gold und silver
ore that runs -'iini to the ton, Mr-
Rice is making arrangements to get
oat <--:eht or 10 tons this full. The
ore will be packed down to Coalmont and from there shipped to the
smelter at Trail. Mr. Rice's property
is three miles from Andrew Jensen's
camp and the two use the same trail.
Mr. Jensen also intends shipping
about 10 ton of $300 ore this lall.

A well known mining paper of the
western states says: "Because of the
European war, notwithstanding thc
fact that all metal quotations have
been suspended for the past two or
three weeks, there is every reason to
believe that the price of silver will
advance to such an extent as to permit of the profitable operation ol
nearly every silver-producing property in the west."
During the past week quite an optimistic spirit has grown up in the
district in regard to the mining industry. The Trail smelter has sent
out circulars offering to accept silver-
lead ores, and on a basis that will
enable most of the properties to resume operations. The conditions are
not as favorable as before the war
on account of the silver market,
which is controlled ia England, being still closed. As soon as it is reopened all claims will be adjusted
accordingly. Before the end of the
week it is expected that another circular will be forthcoming, which will
make the terms even better. As a result of the smelter taking ore again,
the Harris mines will resume work
next week, and will take out ore all
winter, givinir employment to several
men. It is also rumored that two or
three other properties will resume
work now that the smelter will accept ore, thus making quite a mining
stir in the district.—Omineca Herald.

Reasons are given by
"Economic Advertising*
"It is keeping everlastingly at it—the quiet, continuous brand of publicity that worries its way
through to success in the long run and it is difficult
to find any justification for breaking the continuity
of advertising during hot weather.
"Clothes have to be worn and the necessaries of
life provided for, and almost every article with the
exception of purely seasonable goods is in equal demand in the summer as in the winter.
"Then, again, in the summer people do not work
so hard—there is more leisure time, and just because
they have more time for reading it is logical to state
that they have more time for reading advertising.
"To the modern housewife any respite from the
glaring pavements is welcome. She reads the advertising columns of the local paper, and makes it her
shopping guide, especially in the summer. Missing
at this time is losing momentum which will take
considerable time and expense to regain i at a later
date."

Penticton Expects That Thf y
Will Run to Coast Through
Kettle Valley
The Penticton Herald says;—The
Soo l'ine, generally accepted as being controlled by the Canadian Pacific railway is featuring! the Boundary,
Similkameen and Lower Okanagan in
special pamphlets for the Panama
Pacific exposition next year and it is
believed that a great many travellers to and from the fair will use
the Crow's Nest and Kettle Valley
route. '
Announcement that the Soo line,
proposed to induce fair tourists to
trsvsi yia Southern British ColumtiSa'
was ma3e here this week by Presi-,
dent J. J. Warren. ol the Kettle
Valley, at a conference between re-!
presentatives of the municipal coun-j
cil and board of trade and Canadian
Pacific railway traffic men.
"The Soo in its folders for the
Panama Pacific fair is featuring the
southern Okanagan, Similkameen,
Kettle valley, Boundary and Crow's
Nest districts," said Mr. Warren,1
"and particular attention iB being
pa'id to Penticton. The line hopes to
'ret a share of the fair tourist trade,
both going and coming, via the
Crow's Nest, and Kettle Valley to
Spence's Bridge and the Canadian
Pacific railway main line."
The implication left by Mr. Warren
was plainly that next year the   Soo
line trains,     which     have up to the
present  been  operated to the   coast
on the     Canadian     Pacific     railway
main line, would run through south-j
ern British Columbia.  While the Soo'
train is not operated to the coast ou
the present  Winter schedule,  that   is
solely because of the necessity of re-'
ducing the Canadian   Pacific railway \
time-table on  account of dull condi-1
tions. Ordinarily the Soo trains   are
operated  from  Chicago  and Minneapolis up to     the    Canadian    Pacific
railway main line     via North Portal
nnd  Moose  Jaw. Thence the     trains
run west to Mission junction    where
they  are  divided   one   section  going
to Vancouver and the other to Seattle.
The proposal  for  next year apparently is  '.hat the Soo l'ine trains will
leave   thc     Canadian Pacific railway
main line at Medicine Hat and   come
west to th-J     coast     via the Crow's
I Nest, Kettle Valley,     and     Spence's
Bridge route. No doubt later on the
Hope cut-off would be substituted for
thc Spence's Bridge section.
i,   Eventually, also, the main line   of
the Canadian Pacific railway between
: Moose Jaw and Medicine Hat   would
be dropped by these trains when   the
short line west from Weybum on the
North Portal  branch, is completed to
Lethbrldge.  This is to lorm a     link
l in a   new     Canadian Pacific railway
I line    running     from     Hope through
i southern British    Columbia,  southern
Albertn, Saskatchewan and Manitobb
to Winnipeg.
Penticton hopep eventually not   on-
' ly to have a Soo train dally     each
' way, but also one of     the Canadian
Pacific railway    trains   to   and  Irom
enstern Canada

KAMLOOPS TO OARIBOO
Three gangs are at work for the
Dominion government's department
of telephones and telegraphs rushing'
the conBttUctibn of long-distance
lines in the Kamloops district. Under
the direction of W. H. Stevens, district superintendent, they are atJ
tempting to get the work provided
for in this year's estimates finished
hefore winter stops operations.
One party of men is rebuilding the
line from Kamloops to Barrlere, 42
miles up the North Thompson river,
Another is busy from Kamloops to
Ashcroft, taking in Savannah and
Walhachin to give communication between Kamloops and the Cariboo
country direct. The third gang is
building a line from Kamloops to
Enderby, 105 miles away, connecting
at Ducks, Pritchard, Chase, Sorento
and Salmon Arm. Work will ibe finished in about five weeks, whou there
will be six lines, more than 350 miles
long, giving connection out of Kam-
loOps.
ious work in Penticton, and residents
of the district breathe easier, says
tbe Penticton Herald. Not that thej
had anything to fear Ior themselves,
but the habits of a person who
would send scurrilous communications to respected citizens defaming
others cannot be anything but an or-
lence to a self-respecting community.
