Vancouver, Oct. 29.—A special
committee last night recommended
tlie city council to ask Ottawa to abrogate thc Japanese treaty, pnss laws
limiting Asiatic immigration and asking the pruvinci.il government to assist
in bringing white immigrants to British Culumbia.
Tlie committei points out that nine

Japanese, pointing out that during
the week of tho riot they were the only
Orientals to take forcible possession of

by tbe Japanese consul.

J. C, Hutchison Purchases Business-Will Reopen Shortly
It is gratify ing to learn that the
Revelstoke Steam Laundry, utter passing through considerable difficulties
aud liquidation will again be opened
up ior business at au early date. J.
C. Hi.tchit.un, one of our most enterprising and progressive citizens has
purchased the entire business for the
sum ol .$2,500 and will henceforth
operate the laundry as. a private concern. Mr. Hutchison states that he
intends to carry on tho business on
strictly business principles and hopes
to receive tbe liberal patronage of the
city. The present machinery, plaut
and apparatus are all up-to-date and
in first class condition for turning out
the very best work, the building being
0! comparatively recent date, having
been constructed shortly after the fire
last December, lt io tbe intention of
the new owner to employ white labor
only, as well as a competent manager
to take full charge ol tbe work. Prices
will be regulated chiefly hy the patron,
age received. Mr. Hutchison will if
necessary install additional machinery
if tl.e business will warrant it. Special
attention will be paid to all fancy and
delicate fabrics and entire satisfaction
is guaranteed. Care will be exeicieed
in the marking ot articles and the
keeping those of similar marks together. All outlying districts Salmon
Arm, Armstrong, Sicamous, Arrowhead and eastern points will be entered

A good whito laundry running moderate charges is a welcome institution
tn Revelstoke and such a concern will
perhaps muko the Chinese keep more

management will be announced in

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30,1907
THANKSGIVING DAY.
Thanksgiving Day has once more
cuuie round and we have again an
opportunity of returning thanks ior
the many blessing! and benefits we
have received during the past year
Our Thanksgiving Duy is not the
Thanksgiving Day oi the United
States. It has no historic associations.
It dates back no lauding of the Pilgrim Father!. It is simply a day of
National Thanksgiving for the harvest,
aud on the opportunity thus offered
we should all realize that we have
indeed all ol us much to be thankful
fur. In Revelstoke, the signs of the
times are visible, the mark ol prosper
ity is very prominent and we cannot
but lake s natural pride in our city ao
we see her growing more and more,
increasing slowly but surely with an
abundance of good things. We can-
nut but realize as we review the past
year that we have prospered and it ii
to acknowledge this prosperity and t
return thanks for the goud times that
we have had that Thanksgiving Day
will be held tomorrow. While we are
to a certain extent under the ban uf
tiuiucial stringency, yet theuutlonk is
not SO serious us at lir-t thviighl and
th.-ugh the pinch has been felt an.l in
fsct ii hting felt the reaction must
eventually follow. Lit us thii Thanksgiving Day be thankful for the mercies
of the past nnd endeavour to so ord
our future that we may bring credit to
cui city and tu the oommunity in
which we live.
CANADIAN CLUB.
While we  have   .nany institution!
in Revelstoke, that, all more or leSB
need support and keener interest taken
in them, still there is room fur even
one other, und  that sliould be a . '.Lilian Club.   By the organization of a
club such as tliis much material benelit could be derived, and Revelst..kt. is
by no menus too small or luu unimportant that aiie cannot  make her
mark un Canadian affairs.     We huld
here an important position, as one of
the  chiel  cities ol  the interior, and
situated  as a transpurtation centre,
uur possibilities are such as tu warrant
increased development and influence.
There are already ten Canadian Clubs
throughout the west, this side ol ths
Great   Lukes, and there is no reason
why Revelstoke should  nut get into
line.   Every year sees her progressing
along developmental lines and commerce  is  rapidly   producing drastic
changes.    The Canadian   Club  is a
social and educational institution, in
dependent oi all  party connections
designed to promote a lively interest
ih all things likely to redound to the
general good of the country.    It aims
io spread knowledge among the members  on   public questions by having
distinguished  visitors  address them.
No opportunity should be lost in this
city  ot  meeting  all  the  great and
prominent men as they pass through
our  midst and ol  visiting them und
hearing what they have to say.   Were
it widely known that Revelstuke had
a Canadian Club, where (ree irom the
chains, letters and embarrassments ol
political   intrigue,  any distinguished
visitor could meet the citizen!, we feel
sure  that   there  would be no lack ol
outside  interest  taken aud tlie great
men   of  Canada,  and  of  any other
nation could   find  a  welcome and a
hearing before an unbiassed audience
in the clsb room.   The aim should he
to stimulate Canadian sentiment and
to unite the people in a common loyalty to the couutry aud its constitutions,    II the ipirit ol tbe enterprise
ii rightfully placed a Canadian Club
in   Revolstoke  could   become largely
influential in tlie general public life of
Canada.

REVELSTOKE EARLY HISTORY
We intend to publish exlrncls from
the history ot the early days in Revel-
steke, deeming that such will recall
old memories ol old timers and bygone
days when Revelstoke wus in her infancy:
"A Chinaman who was caught pur-
billing some offal, i. e, wasle beef,
frum McCarty's slaughter house a day
..r twu ago, wns hung up to the windlass used for hoisting carcases, nnd
kept until he became pretty nearly insensible. They treat Chinese-thieves
rather summarily in this town."
"John P. Neilson, mail currier between Revelstuke and Big llenil, nr-
al wilh bis dog truin on Wednesday
afternoon, having .nude the lust IIO
miles (trom Carnes Creek) in live
hours, und the 50 miles Irom Seven-
Mile Pass in 11 hours. He lelt here
on ll.e 14tl. (Jan.) nnd reached the
farthest point on his route (French
Creek) on the 20th. This is the .pick-
est trip that l.as been made."

The cry for domeitic help still goes
Up and in spite of the many schemes
projected the actual solution of the
dillicully has never been arrived ut
That the lack of help is having a disastrous effect upou the internal lile of
the country hai beeu amply demonstrated. As civilization advance! and
living becomes more strenuous, the
need ol domestic help is nil the more
keenly lelt. Why can it not be poi-

Exchange of Winnipeg, lie is evi

Canada—yon might as well attempt
to lift yourself by ynur bootstrap!.
The securing uf abundant foreign cap

very dillicult tu secure this, but the

VAKIOUS WATEK SCHEMES.
A water system is offered to the
town lor $500. Mr. P.card's scheme,
which as yet is an unknown quantity,
may be feasible or it may not. But
wc must state, in justice to our correspondent, "Macaroni," thnt Mr.
Picard's intention at first was to pump
the water from the river in the vicinity
"ot the bridge; but in the (ace ol adverse criticism Mr. Picard may have
changed his pluns. There is now another Richmond in the Held, Mr.
Tapping offers to bring water down
irom tbe mountains (or $500 and, unlike Mr. Picard, explains how it is to
be done. But Mr. Tapping errs in
saying Mr. Picard's scheme "was not
approved oi by the citizens," as no one
knows what Mr. Picard's scheme is."

that she loves him, fur to him she is
but a child, and his affections are centered up;n lone, the beautiful Neapolitan maiden. She and her brother
Apaecides, have been pupils ol Ar-
baces, the Egyptian, and he, while
trying to keep the brother irom becoming a Christian, tries al the same
time to win lone for hii bride. She,
however, ioves Olacus The interest j
of the play circles round Arbaces, the
Egyptian, who with bis base treachery
and cunning makes a strong personality.
The plot ia good. The cnstumei are
typical of that early era, the sandalled
leet, the flowing rubes, and tl.e hand
Christians in their black clonks and
hood).

West Kootenny as follows:
"West Kootenay, an enormous fruitgrowing district, where only a little
progress has been made in tl.e southern portion, bin sullicient to indicate
the possibilities and the superi. r
quality of the fruit, which may be
raised along those lakes and streams,
The neighborhood ol NelBOn and
Knslo lms accomplished wonders in
the past lew years, but the shores of
the Arrow lakes are practically untouched by the hand ol the fruitgrower, and the valiey ol the Columbia, from tlie Big Bend south to'
Arrowhead, affords opportunities little
dreamed of by many of those in search
of fruit lands. In the greater part of
tbis district irrigation is only necessary in the very dry seasons,

BUBONIC  PLAGUE
Seattle Takes Precautions-
War on Rats and Vermin.
VICTORIA, Oct. 20.—"Kill your rats
and ull vermin, and burn the dead
bodies," is tlie chief precautiun which
Dr. Fagan, provincial health officer,
urges upon the citizens of Vicloria in
order to obviate all danger of infection
in the event of bubonic being introduced from Seattle.
Plague does not. spread unless by
direct infection. It is not like smallpox or other diseases which become
epidemic where infection may be conveyed through germs floating in the
uir. The germ must he carried and
the chiel offender is the household rat
in .lie esse ..[ bubonic.
Dr, Fagan with Dr. Watt, ol the
William Head quarantine station have
just returned from Seattle where they
looked into tbe precautions exercised
against the spread of the plague,
Dr. Fagan and Dr. Watt stale that
every precaution is being taken in
Seattle to stamp out thediseaBe. Army
doctors, thoroughly experienced in
lighting the disensc in Honolulu nud
the Philippines, are in charge of the
campaign.
No attempt will bc made to keep
uinlters secret but full publicity will
be given the progress ot the wur in
order thai no fnlso reports may go
abroad. A reward ot live cents for tlie
carcass of every dead rnt bus already
been offered in Seattle.
The provincial government is having
a pamphlet published for distribution
This gives the history of the plague
and the treitment In l.e adopted.
