Council Lays Over Petition of
Trustees for Money Bylaw
—Public Works Board Presents Yearly Recommends
After cunsiderahle discussion at the
special m eiing ol the City Council
last night the memorial of the School
Trustees asking that a bylaw tu
authorize the raising ol $40,000 for
school purposes was laid over for a
fuller meeting of the Council hoard.
The recumniendaiiuns of the Public
Works Committee were carefully canvassed anil each item passed. Tenders
will be called (or all work specified ex
cepting the laying ul cement sidewalks
which will he carried nut under the
frontage tax bylaw.
THE LATEST      PLANS FOR
TELEGRAMS!     NEW SCHOOL
Works
1900.
The council enlivened at 8 o'clock
nub the Mayor iu the chair and all
tbe members excepting Aid. Sawyer
and Stone in attendance.
The memorial of the School Trustees
asking for tbe submission ol a bylaw
to raise the emu ol $40,000 for school
purpuses as already uutliued in the
Mail Herald, was fully considered.
Aid. Wells thought the memorial
should have been accompanied with
wider information as ibe ueed Iur the
outlay as the council hid nothing be
fore it but tho mere rei|ii»Bt for the
submission ol a bylaw. His Worship
explained the anomalous relaiiuns
existing between the Trustee and
0i uncil buards under the laws uf the
provinoe aud staled lhat the Trustees
being an elective budy had tlie right
tu make such requests. It was the
duty of the Council to facilitate a reference uf all such questions tu the
peuple whu are tbe liual arbiters in
the matter uf expeLditure. He alsu
suggested that perhaps a cunciliatory
conference with the Trustees might
secure a reduction ol the amount requested to $35,000. He thought, bnw-
ever, that the Trustees deserved cedit
and sympathy frum the Council as
during the laBt lew years they had
brought the Revelstoke school up to a
position second to that of auy in' tbe
province and that good value bad
been obtained for the school expenditures. The question of the location of
tbe new school waa briellly touched
upon after which the whole matter
was laid over tor a fuller attendance of
the members.
Bylaws Nos. 134 and 135 were recon
sidered and finally passed, receiving
the eignature of the Mayor and tbe
corporate seal. These were the two
money bylaws dealt with at the last
meeting ano already reported
The report   of   the   Public
Committee was aB (ollows ;
RevelBtoke, B.C , May (i

HEAVY LOSS
Wide Swath in Shusway Valley
Swept Clean by the Flames.
Farm Houses. Buildings and
Mills Licked Up Like Straw.
The whole Shuswap valley, particularly the districts near Mara aud
Lumby, were this week subjected to a
terrible scorching, and heavy damages
trom the travelling ol bush fires fanned
by higU wiuds. The d:y spring had
left the bush everywhere in a fit condition to invite conflagration. It is
reported that small lirea started Irom
tbe camps lelt by road workmen and
tbat for ten days' previous to the big
burn tliese were Been smoking at various pointB. No alarm was lelt, bow-
ever, for the anioke was distant and
tbe air still.
Last Monday the winds arose and
by evening had increased to almost a
gale, tanning the Humes and driving
them before it like adevouriugdeinou,
leaping streams as tin.ugh these were
not and feeding upon everything coin
buslible within thi track of lhe hulu-
cauBt. Farm buildings, fences, residences itint nil Wooden structures Went
duivn like stubble and iu many cases
the stuck and implements of tho
fanners were destroyed.
The roaring swath of Hume sunn
reached Mara ou the way to which
and at which a story of similar devastation is told. Iu additiou to the farm
building the big mills and machinery
ol tbo KuthesiiY Lumber Co., with a
part of the lumber in the yards was
consumed. Throe bridges wore binned
out along the highways.
Lumby, Blue Springs and Shuswap
Falls were the next to anll'or. At
Blue Springs tbe sawmill and box
factory of W. K. Megaw went down
together will) a quantity ol lumber.
The house and stables of Price Ellison,
M.P.P., at his bay ranch, went up in
smoke and a long list of other losers is
known.
When inice tbe liames took headway
there was n.along that could stay the
devouring clement uwing to the tierce
winds. The trail ..(the fiend is une of
blackened ruins and it will ho many
years befure the losses sustained can
be made up by sulVorers. Fortunately
uu lives are reported lost in tho story
ol the bla/.o.
Warning to the Boys
The local C.I'.R. ollicials aro much
worried over the action ol buys allec-
lod witb more or less ol the spirit of
adventure whu persist iu jumping un
tbe incoming and outgoing smith
train at lho crossing and when the
switches are being taken lor the right
tracks. The hoys take groat risks as
.lynn little (ollows who can scarcely
roach the steps cling tu the bars and
railings and hang un kicking their
loot inin tho air. The train crews
havo dune everything in tlieir power
to discourage the buys and have warned them of tbo danger of their practice but to nu avail. It may do no
barm but much good aud savo, some
day, liioken hearts if parents ol such
children will authoritativoly cum-
iiiand thorn to desist. The poril of
such conduct is great and the time tu
take a firm stand is before, nut aftei
an accident. Tho railway cumpany

take measures tu stop the practice
which wuuld nut be to the liking ol
the parents ol children hut parental
inlluence should bo able tu prevent
the necessity tor tbis.
New Educational Home for
Children is Spacious and
Modern.—Plans at City Hall.
—Provision Made for Staff.
The plana fur the new divisional
schools tor which the Trustees will ask
the ratepayers through the City Council tu authorize tbe raising by debenture the sum of $10,000, may he seen
at the City Hall. These exhibit a
structure in every way calculated to
meet the needs ol the city for aome
yeats to come and of architectural
character sullieiently distinctive to
suit the must critical taste. Viewed
Irum the outside the plans show a
building with concrete foundation,
the superstructure being of brick
55x112 feet in dimensions and two
Btoreya in height, with basement windows well elevated above the level of
the earth.
Tho trout facade exhibits twelve
windows (or ouch lluor and the side
elevatiun bIidwb six, thus providing
ample lighting for the claaa looms
within. The aide e.evatinns alsu show
steel stairway lire escapes of mudoin
design facilitating escape in alarms
and danger lr in lire. The ruuf is
Hat with malihoid ur rubberine protection. The approaching stairway
and porches are ample in capacity and
the vestibules and oorridors within
correspond.
Un the tirat floor there are lutir class
ruunis, each 24 x 34 leet while in tne
centre of the building and between
these is the assembly room, a magnificent hall 28x110 feet. This floor haa
alsu the Principal's room, which is tn
be 10x11 leet. Lavatories, retiring
and clunk rooms, are also conveniently
arran ed
The second Boor ia almost a repli-n
of the. lirst save for ihe size and ar
rangenient of the rooms. The claaB
rooms arc ol the same dimensions, but
the assembly room is Binaller, being
but 28x24 feet.
A teachers' room 13x17 and a library
11x21 feet, cutnplete the hat of the
larger divisions of the building. Cloak
and retiring rooms, aa on Ibe llour
below, are equally convenient. The
atair platform on the second lluor
landing ia lix25 leet.
The basement, in addition to tbe
janitor's roomB, furnace room, luel
bins and store rooms, is divided into a
girls' room 22x40 and a boyB1 basement ball 26x76. All tbe basement
rooms are cement lloored and tbe
furnace and store rooms fire proof.
The specifications call lor the beal
material throughout in the construction and finishing of the building,
while every modern feature safeguarding the life and convenience of
the pupils haB been incorporated iu
the plana and will be stipulated iu
the tenders.
Should the by law meet, with the
approval ol the ratepayers and the
authorization to build be given, the
Trustees expect that the legal red tape
necessary to the lotting of a contract
may be speedily dispused of and the
wurk ul conslrucliim begun. While
ii is not iheir expectation lo bave the
new building leady lur occupation b)

Ihere ia every anticipation that the
beginning of the year will sec the new
premises in use.

already taxed it beyond its capacity. Such iucroasc in tlio population will continue and the health,
comfort and convenience of the
children must be taken iulo ac-
count and adequate accommoda-
lion provided, As we have said,
the determination to do this at
unce i? a mutter fur gratification.
As to the desirability of obtaining a title to Block LU. there are
scarcely two opinions. The city.
within it-elf, has ut present nu
recreation grounds fur its youili
and both the location of the block
and its general features render 11
admirably adapted fur such use.
But beyond and inure important
than this is its adaptitude for future, if uot for present educutional
purposes. With its increasing circumference of industries Hevelstoke
| is bound to become at no far distant date mi educational center in
wbicli High Sohool facilities of lhe
most advanced character may be
enjoyed, Moreover, the inevitable
rise in land values would suggest
und sanction the purchase at once.
Already the block bis alinoBt
doubled in price since the lapse of
the city's option and it is now
offered at its assessed value, There
is every assurance lhat, failing its
acquisition by the city it will be at
once subdivided anil placed on the
market with the city's opportunity
lost. W'd Bhould suppose it would
lake little else to induce the support of the bylaw.
Heverting tu the question of the
new school, the memorial of the
Trustees asks fur authority to build
on the block purchased by the city
sonic four years ago on Sixth street
mist of McKenzie avenue. Such a
proposal ut once introduces the
principle of Ward schools as
against the policy of centralization
and each of those has its ardent
supporters. Geographically the present school premises ure almost in
the center of the city but the preponderance of school population
lies eust of Connaught avenue,
out of un enrolment of 111 two
hundred uml ninety live east of
that avenue while 1.51 reside on
the west side. Most of the former
urn primary class scholars the class
registration gradually rising us the
older part of the city is approached.
These facts ure among the considerations which weighed with the
Trustees in resolving lo ask for
authority to build in tlie east end.
beyond this they are arrested with
the reflection that when lhe rate-
pavers authorized the purchase of
the eust end block it wus tube
used fnr school purposes the obvious thought being that a school
would be erected there some day.
It is doubtful if the Trustees could
erect a school elsewhere without
breaking faith with the ratepayers
und the present Hoard at least feels
that it bus no right to ignore ihis
feature of the situation.
Aguiiii-l these arguments are
strongly  urged   the general advan-
of political and capitalistic opposi
tion—with lhe building of   brand
lines making the country the hack-
ground fabric of u network of ruil-
wuys is little less iliuii amazing.
Particularly is this the case in the
Northwest where, this year alniie
almost $100,000,000 urn being
spent in the construction of feeding
lines. While railways bave a characteristic distinction of going where
iheir promoters please, the neees-
-ity for providing transportation
for the iullux of settlers and the
conveyance of their enormous
ii lieul crops bus doubtless made
the prairie provinces the cenler of
development and extension this
year, Slowly but surely however,
is the empire creeping westward
und when once the imperative
necessities of the middle west have
lieen caught   Up   with    and   rivals
successfully distanced these exploiters of   the country's resources
will    look    toward    llie setting sun
fnr new provinces to conquer It
may be   because  British Columbia
is the last west that she is so slowly coming Into her own in the
matter of railway promotion yet
even in this province there are not
wanting the signs of tbe laudable
covetousness of the railway magnates in their desire to monopolize
the mosl advantageous routes and
reach the salt water terminals
quickly. The unconfirmed report
that the Grand Trunk Pacific and
the Canadian Northern are lucking
arms instead of horns in their
adoption of u joint route from the
Yellowhead Pass to Vancouver, if
confirmed would simply prove that
it is sometimes better to compromise than try conclusions.
Such a compromise and combine
cannot now affect railway development within the province. (liven
a straightforward and luisineelike
railway policy by the provincial
government und the taxpayer of
the province like the taxpayer of
Canada will be prepared to stand
his levy to see the country served
as other provinces are being served.
We are quite prepared to believe,
judging from tbe frequent visits of
railway magnates to the government ollices in Victoria that in the
incubation of great schemes and
the devising of great railway systems the desirable routes through
'.he province to the coast cities have
not been overlooked. It would
perhaps be idle to expect the greater lines lo be delayed for the lesser
but the development along the entire line bus been so rapid it needs
no optimism lo foresee that British
Columbia must -nun cume in for
that share uf attention which she
and her resources merit. Perhaps
the next race will be iur Hudson's
Bay but such will in no way return
the extension of necessary railways
in ; he pro\ nice.

Wc blend the brands wbicb we bave proved best—
keep on blending und testing by actual baking until
we get a dough good enough to sustain, or better,
the Christie  reputation.
Every ounce of raw material is carefully analysed
before it can  pass into the mixing room.
The best sugar, pure, fresh creamery butter, new'
sweet milk and delicious cream these pure ingredients mixed with our blend of Hour, in the Christie

And Its Keeping Qualities
SOME people find it necessary to buy a considerable quantity
of (lour at one time —sufficient to last, fur a long- period.
Naturally I bey arc anxious to procure a Hour of the kind best
adapted to lengthy storage.
There are two important reisons why PURITY FLOUR
possesses these qualities. One it. that it is made entirely from
Manitoba Hard Wheat. The othir 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" flour may cost a little more,
yf !{;«j but is more than worth the difference.
Try it.    Watch results both for quality
and yield.

If hall the resolutions ul the Buard
of Trade reach the target and ring the
bell with the petitions decided upon at
the regular meeting on Thursday
night that budy will prove iteelf invaluable to the business interests und
general progress uf   the city.   A wide
eral superintendent nt the G, T.I'acilic
railway, Mr. Hnggen stated that con-
Hiding ruuiurs as to tbo several
routes lieing sought fur by rival cum
panics from Yellowhead l'ass to the
Thompson river made this desirable.
He thought it in the interests of the
cumpany as well as of the city tbat
the facts stated in the letters
of the Buard should be befure the G.T.
P. ollicinls. In this connection he
also muveii that G. S. MoOarter be
requested to furnish the lluard with
the letters uf President McKenzie ui
the 0.N.R, already received by Mr.
McCarter in reply to the resolutions.
The secretary was instructed to cor
respjiid in huth matters.

the practical reaolutiuns pas-,ed were j greater publicity lur Revelstuke stating that be bad received many inquiries trum United States nnd Kn. -

publicity committee be instructed to

district and that it uutain information
as to tbe eust uf such publication and
lay these belore the next meeting
with a view to the issuing of 5,010

numerous suggestions.
Instructions were given the secretary to communicate with F, VV.

desirability of establishing a brick

chielly confined to   matters of   purely
local interest.
The Board convened at 8 u'elock
with 1'reBident Lawrence in the chair
and a dozen members. During the
discussiuns ul tbe evening E. A. Haggen raised the question uf a separate
judicial district along the main line of
the C.I'.R. with resident County Court
judge at Revelstoke. He pointed out
that the business of the courts here is
often much delayed by the inability of
judges to complete their circuits; that
witnesses often come to the city fiom
distances and at great expense and are
obliged to return home without attending court; that the distances
covered by the Kootenay judges is too
vast to afford the convenient transaction ot court business. He suggested
that the provincial government be
asked to designate a new judicial district intimating that from Wiluier to
Kamloops might be proper boundaries and niuved tu that effect with a
lulluiv-up resulutiuu tuask the Dominion government to appoint another
judge. While the members ol the
Board concurred iu the resolutions
several thought that inure explicit
information shuuld be befure the
buard nud the secretary was directed
to request the solicitors uf the city to
attend the uext meeting and confer.
A further grist of petitions to provincial and dominion guvernments was
precipitated upjn the Board and most
of these passed without much debate.
Une, of some importance wus an instruction to the secretary to write to
Hon. ThoB. Taylor and inquirs what
are uow the prospects fur the opening
ot a land registry ollice at Revelstoke
the matter having been already placed
before the guveniieut. It was agreed that
the matter uf a new cuurt buusc was
so closely ussuciated witb that ol a
laud registry ollice that the pressing
fur the latter was cunsidered sufficient
to bring the whole matter to a decision.
Another petitiun to tbe government
was for the re-upeniug uf the wagon
road leading to Light Mile creek it
being impassible for a short distance
at a certain puint. Still anutber was
fur tbe stringing ul a cable across the
Jordan river lur the cunvenienco ol
those using the ford. Huth were
unanimously curried.
A resulutiuu wus passed tu be forwarded to Hon. W. Templeman and
to Hon. VV. 8. Fielding stating that
in the opinion ol the Board the enn-
tinuunce of a substantial subsidy tu
the Canadian Australian steamship
line was desirable, and another endorsing the Daylight Saving bill was
voted withutit debate.
Among tbe coiiiinirniciitions was a
letter from Hon. Thus. Taylor stating
that the matter nl building cabins lur
tbo use ul 1'iuse gniug nurth on the
big trail and installing a terry across
Canoe river tu facilitate their juurncy
was now before the department for
cunsideration.
Dealing with railway matters E. A.

urged that copies of a resolution passed
