TENDERS TO BE CULLED
EDR CEMENT SIDEWALKS
Council to Investigate Contracts
-Tenders Called tor Septic
Tanks-Question of Sits not
yet Settled.
A special meeting uf the City
Council was held on Monday evening,
the mayor and all the aldermen being
present with the exception of Aid.
Sawyer. One of the principal items
discussed was the new by-law for
cement sidewalks iu different parts of
the city. Tbere was some difference
of opinion as to whether it should be
done by day work or contract. Tbe
engineer estimated the cost at lli cents
a foot, but Aid. Pradolini considered
that rather high. The council waB ol
opinion that the clearing and excavat-
1 ing would have to be done by contract
anyhow as otherwise teams would have
to be hired.
The Mayor expressed a tear that
under the contract syaiem work might
not be so well done, as under day woik
when the city hud it in its own hands
all the time.
Finally it was decided to call tor
tenders anyhow, and consider thtin
though it dues not follow that day
work will be departed from, unlets
tendi s should prove particularly
favornble.
Tlie iiuestiou of the septic tank was
also dis ussed. The Mayor reported
no further progress in negotiations
with the Revelstoke Land Company
for the septic tank site.
The council expiessed a wish to
settle the matter by negotiation if
possible without proceeding to expropriation.
The clerk was instructed to write to
the Hand Company to see il a price
lor the laud needed could be agreed
upon.
It was moved by Aid. Stone and
Kimberley that tenders be called for
a septic tanks on tbe plana aud specifications prepared by the oity engineer
and that tbey be in by August Oth.
Lowest tender not necessarily accepted.
—Carried.
The by-law to raise if I,ill 1 for the
construction of cement sidewalks was
by permission of the whole council
read three times aud carried at the
oue sitting.
On motion ol Aid. Macdonald aud
Stone, it was resolved that a court ol
revision for the purpose of hearing
objections to by-law 143, tor the construction ol cement sidewalks, be held
at the city hall on Wednesday, Aug
llth at 8 p.m. The court is to con
sist ol tbe whole municipal council.
On motion of Aid. Wells and Macdonald it was resolved that in view ul
tbe fact that the construction ol
cement sidewalk, ou the nurtb side ol
FirBt street from the corner ol Campbell avenue to Boyle avenue, and ou
tbe north side ol Second street from
the coruer of Pearson street to tbe
corner of Forde street, and on the
west side of Front street from the
corner ol King streot to Victoria road,
benefits the city at large, it is deemetl
inequitable to assess the whole cost ol
construction ol such sidewalks ou the
property-owners, that the city at large
hear a portion of the expense thereof
to the extent of 91687.16, and that
the payment ol this amount be enterad
lor a period ol twenty years.
On motion of Aid. Macdonald and
Wells it wbb resolved that the city call
for tenders lor the work in connection
with tbe concrete sidewalks about to
be built under the lollowing conditions
First—For each Bidewalk aB per
specifications.
Second—For all the sidewalks as
per specifications. The work ie to be
done under the supervision ol the city
engineer, and to the satisfaction ol the
public works committee. Tbe tenders
are all to be in by tbe 27th inst.

THE POLICE MAGISTRATE
The Observer in its last issue
suggests that the police commissioners should consider what it is
pleased to call "the vagaries of the
Police Magistrate." In mir view if
any.uii- thinks then- ie anything
wrong with the Police Magistrate
and has charges to make agaiu^t
him. tbe proper course would be to
write them down in black and
white and place them before the
commissioners who could then hear
what Mr. Foster had to -ay and
fudge between the two. To be constantly calling names and flinging
out sarcasm and inuendo, while it
mav foster and perpetuate ill folding proves nothing. Differences of
opinion a.- to the course ol any
man holds a judicial position,
there will always be but so long
as a man holds that position he -
entitled to respectful treatment,
and while n- -t above criticism, thai
criticism Bho lid al least I iched
in fair and gentlemanly I ing i igt
So far as we have been able to
observe, those most closely con-
,.. • •.,..! with polici courl proceedings berearewell satisfied with Mr,
Foster's conduct. We believe thai
the legal gentlemen who appe ir
before bim as counsel, tbe polit e
antl public oflici tl- with whom Incomer' in contact, will be willing to
admit that he i- careful and painstaking, that be ha- the intelligence
to grasp clearly the issues before
him, and adjudicates upon them
with a fair ami open mind, 'I hese
we believe are tho opinions "f those
tiin.-i competent to judge, These
are tbe men who know all tbe
attendant circumstances of the
oases that come up for trial, nnd
their opinion i- BUrely worth more
than that of the Btreet gossip, who
from some garrulous neighbor or
parti-tm sheet, grasps a garbled
fragment of a case and bases 11ir-
judgment on that, Judging tbe

leads to wrong conclusions.
If there is complaint to make
against any public ollicial, there is
usually n straight way of dealing
with it, either by petition, written
complaint or public investigation.
lu'some such way these complaints
should be disposed of in one way
or the other, and the thing ended.
That a publication should be sent
out from this city, harping continually of injustice and graft, and
lilled with petty flings at private
citizens, cannot redound in any
way to the good name of Revelstoke. If outsiders are given the
impression that the place is torn
with strife and bickering, and justice itself is contaminated, it is not
likely to encourage them either to
settle here or invest their means
among us. In reality we know
that the people of Revelstoke are at
the core sound and honest, and

vance.
In the meantime on this continent there seems happily to be
no possibility of a renewal of the
fratricidal strife of a hundred years
ago. The ties of blood, of commerce, and mutual interest forbid
it, and should Canada and the
United States pledge themselves to
another century of peace, both
nations will bave earned tbe encomium which Charles Sumner,
pronounced on the country tbat
should be lirst to denounce war and
seek tbe way of peace, "Their fame
shall be immortal as tbe stars
shedding light upon the paths of
men."
Revelstoke is essentially a towi
oi worknrs, and all should assist
in making the Labor Day celebration to be held here a good one.
The weather should then he cool
and pleasant for sports, and with a
good parade to start out with, and
some rousing speeches tn close the
day, there should he no lack of
entertainment. If some special
drawing card in sport could he
secured for the afternoon, it would
add to the attractions and be a
good advertising feature also.
A PASTOR'S SACRIFICE
Rev. J. 11. Robertson, pastor of Knox
church, did a courageous thing when
recently he banded in his resignation
to the management ol his oburob. In
order to pave tlie way for unity ninnng
the ahdereuts ol the Presbyterian
church iu this city, he ia cutting hiin-
sel adrift Irom associations built up by
four yours of eurust endeavor, and with
wife and children dependent on him
has thrown himself on the world without a call or opening in sight. In the
face ut such an act faith in human
□ attirestill survives and wedo not doubt
that when Mr Robertson's self sacrificing action becomes known, a hundred hands will be reached out to assist,
bim to means ol livelihood perhaps
bringing with it a larger sphere of
usefulness. We are fond of eulogizing
heroes whors deeds are done 011 battlefields in distant lands but when it quiet
act of sell sscrifice for the public good
is done in our midst, we are to apt to
let it pass mmi iced.
We can only hope that Mr Robertson
may yet see the fruits of his selfdenial
in the fulfilment ol his own vision, of
one strung Presbyterian church in
Revelstoke, where tbe   financial   bur-

A CENTURY OF PEACE.
Hon. Mackenzie King struck a
popular chord, when at Harvard
recently he suggested that the year
1912 be utilised toerecta memorial
to the completion of a. century of
peace between the two great nations that rule the North American
oontinent hetween them. Such an
action would mark an epoch in the
history of the world. Hitherto

Mining Notes
According to the Rossland Miner,
several good ore finds hnve been made
in Rossland mines during the past
week or two. On the sixth level of
the Centre, a vein 14 feet side and
carrying good ore values has been
found. On the sixteenth level about
150 feet from the sbalt there has been
located a considerable body ol low
grade ore.
In the War Eagle mine the diamond
drill in cross cutting struck ledges of
ore from four to eight feet wide that
will go $14, $15 and as high as $20 to
the ton. On the ninth level an im
mense tonnage of high grade ore has
been opened up.
The main ledge of lhe Centre Star
has been located iu the fourth level of
the Idaho mine. A Btope has been
opened up and a winze is heiug sunk to
the fifth level. The vein at that point
is 25 feet thick and of fairly high grade.

Skeleton 400,000 Years Old
Paris, July 10.—Wise men have
now pronounced upon the age ol the
homo mousterienaia, whose skeleton
was discovered in a cavern near Le
Moustier in the Department of Dor-
dagne, south-western France, about a
year ago. When discovered the skull
was much damaged, but the parts of
the skeleton have since been put
together, and it is now thought the
remains aie those of a young man
between 10 and 18.
The jaws are protruding, tbe skull
markedly receding . The nose would
seem to have been broad and flattened
aud the nostrils directed mainly forward; all these features being very
spelike. An age of 400,000 years is
assigned to the deposit, which belongs
to a late interglacial epoch. This

RETURNING FROM FAR NORTH
Plunged Into Wilderness Two Years Ago and
Given up for Lost.
Ottawa, July 19.—Geo. Caldwell,
the explorer, who wns supposed to
have perished thiee years ago when
searching lor gold north ol the Arctic
Circle, is alive and ia pushing south
from the Hudson Bay regions on hia
way to thia city. With him are his
two Eskimo guides, whose wives have
been mourning them as dead for the
last two years. The lirst news from
Caldwell waa received here today in
the form ol a telegram, brielly giving
information of his early return. It is
not known if he haB realized his hope
of discovering the richeat gold field in
the world. He left the polioo post at
Cape Fullerton, Hudson Bay, in January, 100(1, with tbe two Eskimos,
intending to push to the Copper Mine
River and on to the Mackenzie River,
He sent a letter to his family in
Auguat, 1906, Irom Cheaterlield Inlet
and from that time nothing more waa
beard from bim. The letter was carried south by a party ol Eskimos
returning Irom a musk-ox hunt. Two
years ago Eskimos reported that
Caldwell and hia two companions were
dead. Articles belonging to the men
were picked up and it was believed
they had perished from cold.
Now, however, it develops that the
party came safely through all dangers
and tbere is intense intereat bere over
tbe news Caldwell brings of hia gold
hunting. He headed into territory
never belore entered by white men
and hiB journey will bave a geographi
cal value apart from the poaaibility of
his having found gold.
ENLARGED ACCOMMODATION
Revelstoke Hotels Are Enlarging Premises to
Keep Up With Business
That travel and buaineas are increasing rapidly in Revelstoke is shown
by tbe necessity fur increased hotel
accommodation,wbicb the dift'ererent
hosteleriea of the city are striving to
meet. Two hotels have lately increased
their room considerably, and a third
has already done the excavation work
for the commencement of a considerable addition.

The new annex to the Hotel RevelBtoke, containing fifteen additional
rooms, wiih opened lor business laBt
week. Mr. Alex MeDonell, tbe genial
manager, ia determined to leave nothing undone lur the comfort ol his
patrons us the furnishing ol these
rooms shows. It ia practically divided
iuto suites of two roomB, between
which is a handsomely furnished bath
room with which each room connects
separately, lu every room ia a bedstead ol polished brass and bureaus ol
weathered oak, while the floors are
covered with green Bosphor carpets.
Wicker chairs and trunk stands also
add to the convenience ol the guests.
The walla are finished in kalaomine,
and the doors and casings iu glnsBy
white paint. The annex Is a two-
storey addition to the cast ol the
main building, and its finish is a
credit to Mr. Bethune, the local contractor, who bad charge ol the work.
The a dition and furnishing cost about
$8,000. Besides this Mr. MeDonell
has had the whole house practical'y
refurnished.

A TRAVELLING PREACHER
Rev, __o_.net has Some Emphatic BelLfs and
Quaint Comparisons
Rev. A, Bubnet of New York lectured in the Edison theatre bore un
Sunday evening. Mr. Bonnet's congregation waa amall, and he therefor
decided to abandon hia lecture on
"The Great Pyramid of Egypt," which
he had annrunced, and gave a lecture
on "Consecration," instead. Mr. Bob-
net is not much troubled with modern
scientific discovery. Neither the
Neanderthal man nor the age ol the
Sauriana, whose bones are found imbedded in the earth, trouble him. He
gives it as his emphatic belief that tbe
world is just six thousand years old,
aud that it Iuih almost exactly three
thousand more years to exist, alter
which it will burn up like a rag doll.
He figures out that there are in heaven
juet twelve legions ol angels, and as it
is promised that "the angel of the
bind encamps about his saints," he
thinks that there will generally be
enough to go round lor all the saints
there are ou earth at any one time.
While the Bible only spoke ol "the
angel of the Lord," it really meant
"angela."     lt was plural like "sheep."
"Huw long will they encamp? 1 can
tell yuu to a day. It will he just three
days, lur the Bible says that with the
Lord one day is as a thousand years
and a thousand years is but a day. It
ia just three thousand years till the
second coming of the Lord."
Some of Mr. Bonnet's illustrations
are certainly unique. Speaking of the
love of Christ in leaving hia heavenly
home to take on human tleah he
aeked his audience pointedly:
"Now which of you would like to go
down on all fours and take on the
form and flesh of a little pig and
grow up and spend thirty-three yeara
amoii,' the pigs? Vet the difference
would be no greater f:r any of us
than it wae for Christ to leave hia
epiritu.il form as an archangel and
come down and take un our human
form."
His illustration of eternity was
helped out hy a feather and the old
stove in the corner. "Suppose," he
said, "an angel came once in a thousand years with a feather in bis hand
and gave one brush on that stove, and
kept coming back every thousand yearn
and brushed on the atovc once more
each time till it waa swept oil the
earth, and then be started to brush
this building in the saint: way, and
the town antl the mountains, until
he bad swept tbem otf the globe. By
the time he got through eternity
would be just about starting in."
Hia idea ol giving to the Lord wae
helped out by a story of Pastor Russell.
A man came to Russell aud eaid he
wished be had a million dollars and
he would give it all to spread the
goapel truth.
"And the paator told him he had
already given it, and ao he had. He
had given it because he had uot taken
a million dollars away from the Lord.
Hia are the cattle on a thousand hills,
and il you give in spirit that is
enougL."
Monarch lead Mine
Following are some further particulars of the big Monarch lead mine at
Field which was purchased recently
hy the Mount Stephen Mining Syndicate of coast capitalists who are to
start work on it right away.
The mine haa heen worked iu tho
past from a a rlace level at a point
about 700 feet above the C.I'.R. tracks.
Owing tu a atretch of perpetual slide
over which a road ia lo be operated to
the workinga, tho new company haB
decided to open into the mountain at
bunker height above the track and
isceiid to the ore body by tunnel at
an angle ol 45 degrees, a distance of
about 700 feet, which will open into
the workinga.
Arrangements have been made with
the C.P.R. lor a platlorni over the
tracks, which will allow ol waste heing
dumped clear of the metals. The ore
will be lowered down the tunnel and
taken out to the platform bunkors
and dropped into cars, ready lor the
Bmelter.
It is estimated that at least 10,000
tons ot lead are in sight, while it is
dillicult to pluce it limit on the extent
ol the mineral in the mountain. He-
cont examinations havo convinced
the now uwners that the oro body is
very much greater than was at first
estimated Samples taken from all
partB of the property average in value
over $25 per ton.
The deal is one of the most important closed in the province in many
months.
PURITY FLOUR
And Its Keeping Qualities
SOME people find it necessary to buy a considerable quantity
of flour at  one time—sufficient to  last  for a long period.
Naturally they are anxious to procure a flour of the kind best
adapted to lengthy storage.
There are two important reasons why PURITY FLOUR
possesses these qualities. One is that it is made entirely from
Manitoba Hard Wheat. The other lies in the fact that the careful
milling necessary to produce "Purity" absolutely excludes' all
low-grade particles of the wheat berry. It's the high grade
Manitoba Hard Wheat Flour that keeps—stands longest storage.
That's  "Purity."
"Purity" (lour may cost a little more,
but is more  than worth the  difference.
Try it.    Watch  results both  for quality
and yield.

Another "Sunshine" Feature
This ii an entirely new idea, and will especially interest people who reside in natural
gas districts. The gas ring takes the place
of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus making
it possible to burn gas in your furnace without
inconvenience. Such is not possible in a
furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;
for, should the gas give out, a coal or wood
fire could not be started until the gas pipes
were disconnected.
To provide against sweating in the summer
time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped w-ith a
nickelled .steel radiator and dome. All
bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods
copper-plated. Tli is special treatment, besides meaning quicker and greater radiation
from the radiator and dome than cold chili
ir mi could possibly give, arts as protection
fur the bolts, rivets and rod-, from inroads of
gas. When cast iron comes in contact with
our nickelled steel it is coated with nur special
An tt-Rust treatment, which prevents the
slightest possibility oi rust commencing
anywhere in Sunshine Furnace.

LABOR DAY CELEBRATION
Trades and Labor Council Deals With This
and Other Matters
Further preparations for celebrating
Labor Day were made at a meeting it
the Trades and Labor Council held
last, Saturday night, ami the work is
to he pushed forthwith. The lirst
step to he taken will be the circulation
of posters in neighboring towns announcing that a celebration is to le
held here.
II. Kempster presided and Ihere was
a good al tendance of delegates.
II. N. Coursier reported in the
matter of securing speakers for tin
evening, that IC. T. Kingsley, ot Vancouver, had promised lhat Kevelstoke
should have the lirst call on him,
It was suggested that several othei
mimes might be secured, and then the
Council could choose between them.
Delegate Lyons said they ahould
get up something as good aa possible
aa it was the only day they celebrated
in the town.
Mr. Coursier said that while in
Okanagan lately many penple had
inquired ol him what they were going
tc do in Revelstoke, and be had t Id
them to look out for Labor Day. He
made tbe suggestion of distributing
posters which was afterwards adopted.
The following committees were ap
pointed:
Soliciting and Finance—Measre.
Knapp, Kimberley and Mit hell.
Sports—Me8ara. Lyons, Kempster
and Hiiywartl.
Advertising—Messrs. Coursier, Cal-
lin and Tweedie.
Delegate Lyons said they had sume
first-class trophies on hand to ompete
Ior already, and with generous subscriptions from the citizens, they
ought to lie able to give veiy good
prizes. With good attractions in
sports and amusements they should
draw anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500
penple from neighboring towua.
The chairman aaid they were not
able to present a report on the abolition of the ward system, as the
committee had not been able to get
together. About two thirds ol the
property of the city wae represented
by the signatures on the petition they
bad circulated, and they should be
able to report at the next meeting.
It wae resolved that a letter of condolence he sent to Mrs. Dewar, expressing the sympathy of the Council
with her on the death ol her husband
who had been one of their members.
It was reported that the contractors
lor the Molsons Bank building had
promised to pay union wages to the
enrprntera when they began work,
though the men working on the brick
aud cement work were not union men.
