Successful Gathering—Music
and Patriotic Songs.
"Together joined in crickot's manly
toil," has been the motto of tho leading English cricketers magazine fur
many years and even in Canada this
noble game has its thousands of devotees and enthusiasts. No greater
evidence of Ihe popularity of cricket
in Revelstoke could have been demonstrated, than was evinced last night in
the Selkirk Hall, when the Kevelstoke
Cricket Club entertained tbeir many
friends and associates at a smoker
Tbe hall had been tastefully decorated
with greenery, Hags and emblems ol
tbo game and some two hundred
guests tilled the room, finding comfortable seats at many tables, while
excellent refreshments supplied by the
Enterprise Browing Co., pipes and
tobacco were handed round most
liberally. A long and interesting
programme of vocal, and instrumental
numbers was rendered, all the songs
chosen being most appropriate with
chorus in which there was a general
joining in. 'lhe evident pleasure ol
the smokers in the music was demonstrated by Ibe continuous encoring of
every performer ss bis turn came.
Patriotism was tbe feature of tbe
gathering, and no more popular,
patriotic or jovial aggregation of
Revelstoke citizens can be found than
in the Cricket Club.
\V. \V. Foster occupied the chair in
a highly efficient manner and made
neat little remarks appropriate for the
occasion, ln presenting the prizes
for Ibe best averages of the season,
Mr. FoBter referred to the excellent
record of tbe club during the year,
only one match being lost. F. Bourne
with a batting average oi 22 received
a handsome "willow." Entwbistle
topped the bowling and also received
a bat, although being in the Old
Country he could not receive it in
person. J. Maley as captain received
a hat, the chairman congratulating
him on his energy in matters connected with the club. W. H. Humphreys was presented With a bat by
the club as a recognition of bis valuable services and untiring interest in
his duties as secretary.
Alter the presentation a fuur round
boxing contest was put up by Messra.
Macguire aud Haddick, which caused
much amusement. Of the performers
much could be said, but space dues
not permit, suffice it that each individual was greeted with loud applause
and encored.
Tbo smoker was pronounced the
most successful of any hold in Revelstoke and reflects great credit on the
promoters, a fitting wind-up to a
season of cricket which has been 0. e
of success and all round enjoyment
Cricket has taken a strong hold in
Revelstoke, I eing a link with the
Motherland, and last night'* smoker
has demonstrated that Kevelstoke
citizens are not wantiug in loyally to
the Bag ot to the king of all games.

The Great McEwen - Hypnotism
Mind Reading, Vaudeville.
The theatrical season brings to tbe
local opera house un engagement of
the Great McEwen and bis popular
organization, in a prugrammcof hypnotism, magic, mind reading and
vaudeville, There is no entertainer
befoie tbe public that is bettor known,
or giving bolter satisfaction to larger
audiences than the Great McEwen,
and bis appearance hero will be welcomed by those i terestcd in tbe mysterious or seeking fun iu the amusing
hypnotic performance.
Mr. McEwen has spent lhe entire
summer in searcbing among the new
ideas in magic, and has perfected a
number of tricks and illusions tbat
will create a sensation wherever produced. The new and startling illusion entitled, The Magician's Dream,
has puzzled the brightest minds iu the
magical world, while the complicated
trick, "Huchamosa," suggested by tbe
Hindoos is most perplexing.
Hypnotism in all its Orancl.es has
been a lile study with tbe great McEwen, and tbe results be obtains,
using a class oi local men, is wonderlul. There is no entertainment bo
interesting to tbe scientific minded
and amusing to the pleasure lover as
a well conducted class in hypnotism.
Tbo Great McEwen's reputation was
made in this line of work and the fact
that tbis science will be a feature ol
his performance this season, assures
all theatre goers ol a highly enjoyable
evening, when this clever entertainer
again visits us on Friday and Saturday, Doc. 13-14.
"Wo are King" was staged on Mon
day night at the Opera House under
the direction of Mr. C. P. Walker.
The production is an excellent one,
full of satirical comedy, combined with
a certain dignity ol expression surrounding all court scenes, " We sre
king" is delightfully romantic,dealicg
as it does with the love affairs and
court intrigue of kings and princesses
it is especially interesting. The plot
is a fine one, resembling closely the
lamous "Prisoner ol Zenda" by
Anthony Hope, when the king.debased
to his people, is deposed and a wandering journalist, who bears a striking
resemblance is made king instead,
while being at first confined in the
palace as a spy. The climax is reached
when the journalist is rrally proven
the rightful beir lo tbe throne. Aud
through it all, plot and counter plot
tbe other character making and un-,
masking complications, the situation
being delightful in the extreme.
Mr. Gaily, in tbe leading dual roll,
is a young actor ol marked ability and
charming personality. His oomedy,
satire an.l imperious manner, all show
pesfect study. The rapid changes in
the dual roll make it difficult to believe it it one and the same man,
Above all a sense ol refinement, a
pleasing ease of bearing in an excetd-
ingly dillicult piece should make Mr.
Gaily a general favorite.
Miss l.'l if ion makes a charming and
dainty princess, while the other psrts
sre sell sustained. Tbe scenery,
costumes and gowns being appropriate
and handsome, >
The play was again presented Uit
Golden, B. C, Nov. 19.—Captain

Everywhere be found tbe members
enthusiastic, looking forward to next
season's shooting. The captain says
that prosperity prevails in all districts.
Fernie, he says, is making pronounced
strides. He predicts that it will
become tbe most important town ol
the interior. He thinks the Kootenay
Central Railway will develop the
southern mining section, the Columbia
Valley and mountain region Irom
Golden to Rovelstoke.

It is satisfactory tn note that the
public ol Revelstoke are evincing such
enthusiastic inteiest in tl.e .natter ot
a trullic bridge across the Columbia.
The Board of Trade bave heen prompt
in circulating a petition which will oe
presented to tl.e p rem ior at tin early
dato by a delegation appointed l.y tl.e
board for that purpose. Tho city
eouncil have passed a resolution which
will be forwarded to tl.o premier, with
the E.mie object. Entile 3o-operatioii
is necessary in ordor that this matter
may bave duo consideration at tbe
bunds of Mr. McBride, and all parties
headed by Ibe Board of Trade as representing tbe Kevelstoke public, should
lend tbeir unbiassed suppoit. The
matter is not oneol sectional or party
interest but ol publio benelit ami ibo
delegation should goto Victoria with
that object in view, having the Interest! ol tho oity at lieu, t and taking
tirst place. There iB not the question
ot a doubt as to the need ol it bridge;
ihe nucleus of ii settlement is already
it. existet.ee, while largo ..ores of valuable land will al onco be opoi.ul up,
It is to be hoped that the delegation
who have been chosen to represent the
city will pisce thu matter, clearly and
urgently, before the premier, laying
stroe on tbe inct that a future settlement will be the immediate result and
that Kevelstoke as a rich and valuable
centre of a prosperous riding will so
much more expand and increase as
this communication il obtained will
assuredly permit of its so doing.

WEDNESDAY, NUV. 20, 1907
Apropos of tbe opening of the new-
wing ol  tbe Y'.M.C.A. the inaugural
dinner ol whicli  will   take place tomorrow, it  is  titling that tbe public
should again be reminded of the excellent work that the local institution
ii doing and  the enterprise tbat bas
been shown by  tbe  directors in thoir
orlorts to place the local branch on as
secure and solid fouodatiou as any in
tbe province.   The association in general has  made  enormous  strides almost from ocean to  ocean in Canada,
but particularly  in British Columbia
bas tbis growth  been demonstrated.
Revelstuke has  an    institution    of
which ber  citizens  should be justly
proud and in a railroad centre such as
this, the need of an associalion iB particularly great,    since the inauguration of tut local branch great progress
has been mode and the interest shown
in it by all  sorts  and  conditions ol
people, proves that the movement has
universal support.    The usefulness of
the Y.M.C.A. iu cities, railroad centres and  manufacturing towns is generally recoguized by  all the captains
of industry, and tbe railroad companies, recognising how invaluable the Y.
M.C.A.  has  been  in   securing good
men for the road and enabling theni

upon, are   amongst the largest contributors to the support of  the Association  in their  different localities and
the splendid response which tbe Canadian people west of the Lukes have
made to the appeal for these buildings
and  association   work  only  goes to
show how wholesome manhood is developed in the man and boy in these
institutions,  which   in itself  cannot
but convince them ol the benefits to
be derived, once the  matter is placed
clearly belore  them.    Tbe C.I'.R. is
making  munificent  support to the
Revelsloke Y.M.C.A. which will hsve
ite  due  reward  in   tbe  creating of
strong, healthy, morally and physically
men and  boys fit lor any task or any
service.   The city will benelit by the
possession ol  a rendezvous where the
youth may congregate In wholesome
pastime snd recreation and the moral
Btandard uill bc maintained in spite
of other varied allotments elsewhere.
In every department hore, excellence
is  our aim, and the people of Revelstoke realising this have risen tu the
o:casi .n in unanimous support for the
enlarging  and   augmenting ol   the
building, whicli the growth of tbe city
and the  expansion and popularity ol
the  Institution   justly demand.   Our
citizens  are  making one ol tbe best
investments in tho tine building that
is  now  erected  mid   being enlarged

IMR : I'l... Mib-loadcr in yonr issue
ol Nov, lllth deserves more .ban pas.-
i...; attention Now that Canada is
leeling tin financial stringency, it is
time tn think about tho subject and
consider the cau-es nud the remedy.
I noli, e leading bankers say this condition is world-wide and the cause and
remedy aro therefore universal rather
than local. That this is not true ii
evidenced by the *act that France,Ior
iiiBtance, has offered Britain and
America such large amounts of money
to help theni over existing conditions.
The cause, not being universal, nius'
bo lo some ...xtent liieal. In Britain.
Lord Rothschild attributes it to the
(Mint ul confidence created in ihe
minds ol cmiitalists by the "hissing"
ut oapltal that is heard, e«|>( chilly at
election times
In Germany the methods ol national financing are blamed as having
oreated a similar want ol cm.fl'.lcuc".
In lho United Slates tl.e attacks of
Roosevelt on the trusts, and the want
ol confidence thereby created, is given
ae the rot-on. In Canada we arc
calmly told by Hon. Mr. Fielding,
minister ol finance, and by leading
bankers that tbe cause lies in tbe
excessive progress ol the couutry.
Now to my mind there are several
causes and remedies eo lar as Canada
is concerned. You have referred to
one of them,
It is an axiom tbat a monetary
system, to be perfect, should be based
on the population, production and
commerce, or assets ol a nation, that
thc circulating medium should increase with tl.e increases in these
features of national development, and
tbat it should decreaie with their
respective reductions Bhould such
occur. This latter phase could only,
however, occur in the case ol a decadent nation, or In tbe event ol a great
national calamity.
Canada, then, is a nation ol progressive increase on whatever basis
may be chosen tor its monetary circulation. The basic system in this
Country is that known as a credit
currency, based on gold. Tho government is authorised by a law which,
judged by the progress of the country,
ought to be relegated to ancient histoy
That law authorises the issue by the
government of currency to the extent
of 130,000,000, backed as you say by
15 per cent, specie and 10 per cent,
national securities guaranteed by the
Imperial government. Any issue
ove" and above that can only be on
the actual specie held by tbe Treasury,
and tbe amount issued on the Bur-
plus basis is 124,794,597. Since tbat
currency law was adopted the population hae increased largely, the revenue
has nearly doubh d, the exports have
nearly trebled, yet the natbnial credit
currency which, alter all is tbe actual
means ol providing fnr the moneta.y
handling ol this hugely increased
business ot the country, has not been
increased one iota.
lt will be s i.l that the increase in
bank capital and bank currency has
supplied ihe required monetary increase Has it ? Let lhc c.nidi'inns
ol tuday answer, wlie.e Ihe bankers
tell you there is not enough money to
go tound, When this financial stringency came to l.e realized there was no
trade depression. The country was
prosperous Irom one end tc the other
The only cloud in the sky was the
uncertainty about the* wheat crop, but
when tbe results were known the
public were assured that there was
abuut a two-thirds crop with a third
better price, so tbat matters came out
about even. Tbis then, was not a
But it was found the banks could
not supply the money to move the
crop; that ships went to Fort William
and had to return empty because the
necessary funds to pay for tbe wheat
oould not be got; and tbat in order
to move the wheat crop, Hon. Mr,
Fielding, finance minister ol the
Dominion, had to come to the assist
snee of the banks, with funds to do
this work. And if be bad to come to
tl.e assistance ol tbe banks, why
ibould he not come to the assistance
ol tbe public with sn smending law to
allow the increase of the national
currency in proportion to the growth
of the country ?
In bis "Principles of Banking,"
Thomss Uankey, formerly Governor
ol the Bank of England, quotes an
opinion then applicable to England,
which ie now applicable to Canada,
when it is remarked. "How absurd
to expect that the same amount of
circulating medium can discharge the
r quired duties wbeu tbe exports sod
imports ot tbe country amount to
£200,000,000, as when they only
amounted lo £50,000,000?
There are two other causes for monetary stringency affecting Canada.
One ie thtt last year the biiancc of
trade was against Canada to the extent ol 152,000,000, this country's
imports ol manufactured goods mainly
Irum the States, exceeding the exports br thst amount.   This deficit it
yeiiine, cut ms. yea. a wi.cat crop, mil
tbo urcf.t remedy lies iu thi' hn.idling
up imn and -e I and otbe   Caliailia
industries,   .
The uther 1-.1 use is hai tbe oh.. I
Canadian c.pi.alist. nave hen de-voting .heir 11. y tinbedevi'lnpiiieiii ,.f
foreign countries Instead of tl.e laud
where tbey gathered their weallh. I
know must people will ileny this
latter leature to be an injury to
Canada, but «o high an authority on
finance ae tbe late Right Hon, G. J
(ioschen, former chancellor ol the
British Exchequer, in his work on tbe
"Foreign Exchanges" says on this
point, "ln the same way as the
monetary system ol a country may be
endangered when it import, more
foreign produce than the amount ol
its exportation, so may it be endangered l.y the undue purchaso ul foreign
stocks, with the Bole distinction that
the latter arc lar more adapted to for
re-exportation than manufactured
goods or produce." Thia difficulty can
be surmounted by progressive taxations or incomes from such investments.
Auother reason to which some
weight tc should bo given is the fact
that the Canadian banks, though deriving their charters and gr.at
privileges from the people and government ol Canada, are shown by the
government returns of Sept. 30th to
have $03,2118,1)94 invested in call loans
outside Cauada, most ot which is said
to have been invested in New York,
while only $47,2g8,694, was invested
in similar securities in Canada itself.
Unless it can be satisfactorily explained by the bankers this is a feature of Cauadian banking that should
have attention at tl.e hands of Parliament.
With the exception of France the
monetary and banking systems of
Canada are the soundest, most scientific, and best on the face of the earth,
but the weak point about it is that
the national credit currency issue has
not been kept up-to-date as shown by
the fact that, with the exception of
Russia, Canada l.as tbe lowest per
capita money circulation ol any important country. France heads the
list with $37.38 per head, the United
States comes next with $30 per head,
Germany next with $19.92, Britain
uext with $18 29, Canada next with
$1363, aud Russia next with . n'y
It may be objected that there is no
demand Ior actijii by the Dominion
government on this matter, The
reason is ibe people do ..ot understand
tbe position. For instance I tried to
get the matter broached at the Board
of Trade and the Libe.al Association
but everybody seemed afraid even to
discuss it. Well, people get what they
vote Ior as a rule, and il tbe community is satisfied with existing con
ditions without making an effort to
get a rente ly, 1 hey deserve all tbey
suffer, I am satisfied il this m.tler
w, ro underst.11 d every Lib nil Assooiation, and every Bi.ar.1 ..f Trade aonld
take it up und ins st on the Domini. 11
government doing iheir duty under
tbe circumstances. Pmles-ur Walker,
says in his "Political Economy":—
"The demand Iur money is the ..ccae
ion for the use of money in effecting
exchanges." When the bankers tell
us there is not en. ugh money to go
round they show there is a demand for
mote currency.
I have to apologise Ior tbe length ol
this letter, but seeing tbe importance
ol the subject and the complexity of
the issues involved it has been im
possible to deal with it in less space so
sb to make myself understood, I trust
the effect of this letter will be to
induce peuple to think about the
question and create a publio opinion
which will not rest satisfied till a
remedy is provided lor the unsatisfactory conditions now existing.
Parliament meets at Ottawa this
month and unless a remedy is applied
there will be much distress through-
out the country this winter, as in.
duttries are forced lu close and men
snd women are thrown out of em
ployment by reason ol a condition of
things which, by a little intelligence,
can be remedied in a scientific manner,
