Shipment of Valuable Horses
Lost Through Suffocation on
Two Separate Occasions.
Vancouver,  Feb. 5.—Mr.  Dngnld
Rosb, of Streetsville,   Out.,  is now
lying at the Hotel Vanoouver seriously ill from the effects ol a severe chill
and the lou of a whole shipment of
thoroughbred horses.   About a week
ugo he lelt Onturio with 11 thorough-
hnd bores, mostly Clydesdales, and
including two teams ol lino hackney*.
They werc coining through in core of
the Dominion Express Co., nnd bud
reached North Buy when lhe conlo.l
heater exploded and  belore  the car
could ho ..pened and the ho. sob taken
out, seven of theni   were  suffocated.
Again on Friday nighl, while the ear
wa» between H.rrim.......I Agassiz, il

California's Attitude on School
Question May Head to War
Between Two Nations.
New York, Feb. 4.—A Washington
despatch to thc Times says: California
can bring on war with the people ol
Japan il she wants to. That is the gist
of what the president lias been telling
the Californiaus ever since thc public
school incident in San Francisco lirst
attracted international attention. All
they have to do is to get into the fight
and keep on insisting on their present
course, the result will be certain. Not
now, or in the immediate luture,
because Japan is not now in condition to fight, and knows it, but a continuation of Calilornii's oout'.e will
bring about such a careful preparation
for war on the part of Japan as took
place before the struggle with Russia:
It will lead tbe Japanese to think
that war with tlie United States is
invited and once they got that notion
settled in their heads they will not
retrain Irom preparation lor war, when
tbey are ready tbey will go at it, and
if we are not ready, ton, so much the
worse for us. Tlie position taken by
thc Japanese is simple and clear.
They believe in their social equality
with any other race on earth. They
are ready to make it good l.y force ol
arms. They feel that they have already proved it by defeating tlie Russians and have no desire to make any
further demonstration of that kind,
but if a situation arises where it
would seem necessary to them to make
such a further demonstration thoy
will lose no time in getting at it.
Mines and Smelters in Kootenay and Boundary Seriously Hampered,
Rowland, Fell. 6.—The difficulty
experienced in securing fuel continues to handicap both mines and
smelters. At tlie Le Roi mine during the week the management seriously considered the question of
shutting down, but managed to pull
through without, owing to the
timely arrival of n supply. The
smelters cannot he operated to
their full capacity nnd us a result
the mines enn only ship n limited
quantity of oro to them. Thus the
lack of sufficient fuel supply oper-
ntcs to the disadvantage of both
mines and smelters. The question
of a fuel supply is a serious one nnd
should at once be' taken up hy the
authorities to thc end that it may
be remedied. Tlio mining section
ol the province cannot afford to
have itB production so seriously
curtailed from such a cause if n
possible remedy enn be found,
Blizzard Sends Snow Over
Plains at 60 Miles an Hour
-Manitoba Towns Without
Flour, Coal and Coal Oil.
Winnipeg, Man. Feb. 4.—During
Inst night the worst storm in twenty
years raged throughout tbo country.!
botween Fort William and tlie Rocky
nn..... tains" On the prairie the blizzard was so bad that it was impossible
to see more thin, a lew yards. This
morning not i. wheel was moving on
the railways in Manitoba, but the
companies hope to got somo trains in
during tlie day. Three and perhaps
lour eustl.o.ind trains uro stalled near
Swift Current and tho wind is so
strong that it is in.possible to dig
them ...it, tho truck tilling up us fust
as it is dug out.
The Winnipeg street car service was
paralyzed during the night nnd nil
tbo-e living oh the northern and
southern portions ol the city weie
o'-lige.l ... walk through drifts to their
work, St. Churles, S:. Boniface nnd
Hendhigly cur lines were still snowed
up nnd ilitr-- is but li'tle hope cf
getting lh. in open tu-day.
G... iliti.i.is in the ranching districts
aro desperate. Cattle in Alberta me
dying l.y thousands. Somo hope was
held -mt for a percentage of ranoliois
but with this storm it is hard to Buy
what the result will be.
Pinoaer Cheek, Alb., Feb. 2.—
Every passing train kills large numbers of cattle and tbe slaughter has
become heavy on tbe Crow's Nest
Pass Irom Dunmore Junction to
l.ell,bridge that the C.P.R. has employ..! a large number of Indians to
drive cattle Irom right-of-way. Indian
scouts nre patrolling the line for
iniles throughout Grassy Lake region,
holding half crazed cattle by every
device known tu experienced cowboys.
Stock drift with the wind and snow
until tbey strike a "cut" or the side ol
a heavy "Iill"on tho line, where they
are protected from the fury of the
storm, Here tbey remain in ever-
increasing numbers until passing
trains scatter them. Under the Railway Act, transportation companies
are practically responsible for all
cattle killed on tbe right-of-way,
regardless of the existence of cattle
guards and wire fences. Witii the
blizzard prevailing, sending snow over
tbe plains at a sixty mile nn hour
velocity, tho strongest fence is snapped
like paper before a rushing herd ol
stock cuntaining several hundred head.
Sxo.vki.ake, Man., Fob. 2.—There iB
no conl in Snowllako and no Hour; no

Makes Good Progress '.. om
Features of Past Year's
Development Worthy of
(From the British Columbin Mil •
ing Record.)
Mining in British Columbia is a
decidedly progressive industry and its
growing impoi tan o and augmenting
value should bo moro emphatically
and persistently proclaimed by tl.o
newspaper press of the province,
which, us a rule, duos nut give it tl.e
pm...inonco it merits, 8in.il.irly in
ollicial quarters its stonily expansion
and consequent weighty inllueiice on
tl.e general industrial situation do not
always appear to bo adequately reoog.
t.izod. For iusi.ii.ee, the honorable
thc premier, who is also minister of
mines, in his published address to tho
olootor.ite of British Columbia, is, wo
think, altogether too modest concerning il. llis brief comments on ibis
industry and the attitude ol the provincial gov.-inn.oul towards it nro us
"lt is gratifying to know that this
imp..riant industry is iu a mast flourishing condition; that in the last lew
years Ihore bus boon a remark.ible de
vol..p...cut in particular ol the Coast
mines some of which bid fair to rival
iu volume and the value of iheir output the richest of those in the inlcrior
of the province.
"The government has not thought
it desirable to mako alterations in lhe
mining regulations, believing that tl.o
interests ..( that industry are besl
se.rv.-.l by creuting the impression lhat
the laws affecting it aro nut likely to
be changed."
Now, iu uur opinion, the premier
would have been quite justified in
directing public attention tu tbo fact
that io the most productive placer-
gold districts—Allii) ni.d Cariboo—
finunciall) strong companies arc making extensive preparations for the ic-
covory uf gold on a much larger scale
and in n m'nnner that gives promise of
permanence of operations; lhat Rossland, Boundary nnd Coast mines nro
steadily increasing their output olgold
and silver in conjunction with copper;
th..i iln- production of silver in 1'Jllli
was larger iu quantity than for years
previously, notwithstanding the c.ru-.
pi.r.uivo smnlliiess of production of j
this metal iu the Slocan during thai
year; that .... increase of nearly
1,600,000 lbs. in the amount ol cupper
produced was an udvi.uoe over thut ..I
2005 ol nearly 20 per oent; that ths|
production of lead is being woll nuiii-
tained and tips without any . re*, nt
assistance in the way of bounty from
the Dominion, Iho estimated small decrease tn!- year ..*- con.par. d with last

the bigger companies, and the not
eirnings of close corporations engaged
in mining, between lr'H.000,000 ...id
If 1,000,000 were divided among share-
bold... s in mining companies, Since
nothing else iB so convincing to prospective i. vosu.rs, this distribution of
surplus net prnlils may well be regarded as a matter for sincere con-
gr. t nl ;i tion.

Severe Cold Weather General
Throughout the Northern
The winter thus far has indeed been
one of the old fnshionsd sort, too old
l.tshiooed altogether to suit the ell'eni
ina to people of these days. We do not
like it at all. Wc would infinitely
prefer to slick to the new fashioned
weather to which we have been accustomed, il the powers that rule the
atmosphere would be so kind as to
listen to our plaints. The past month,
meteorologically, bus been just such a
one as the British Columbia pioneers
tell in the lirst month ol tlie year
used to be in tl.e old days. At the
same time we must uut forget that we
in Ilevelstoke are not the only sufferers, Low temperatures have been the
rule throughout the prtions of the
earth io which tli3 people aiefar
enough advanced to note scientifically
the condition of the thermometer, lu
every part ol the continent.. long anil
bitter cry has gone up about the
weather. And not only is this stress
of rigorous cold confined to this continent hut throughout. Europe ll.e
winter has been one of unusual severity and the general suffering has been
intense, We draw attention to these
facts merely for the purpose of convincing the individual who is inclined
to grumble at Kevelstoke weather thnt
ihe winter has been au exceptionally
cold one everywhere, nnd that, as
usual the dips thnt hnve descended
upon our heads have been merely
feeble blasts from the cold waves that
have repeatedly swept over the province aud the whole Domiuiou,

The annual meeting of the Board

adopted, Thc president then rend his
annual report which summarized the
work done by the Board during the
pnsl year and explained lully the
needs of the city and district, and
what the Board had to undertake for
the coming year The report reflects
much credit on the president, who'
has been very active in taking up all
matters of city interest and development. The report shuns what thc
hoard hits taken up during the year
and what is necessary lor the coming
Benson .'or discussion.
E. A Haggen congratulated the

that copies ol it be circulated among
the bonds nf trade and in the city

in the establishment of free ports on

The traffic bridge over the Columbia,

Communication Cut Off —Ice,
Snow Drifts and Slides
Demoralize Traffic.
The unprecedented long spell ol
severe weather through which this
whole continent has been and is
still passing, is having a most
serious effect on the transportation
companies both in Canada and Hie
United States. Locally we have
managed to get along alter a fashion,
but the continuation ul the cold spell,
combined with heavy snowstorms, is
bringing about a rather serious local
situation. East and west trains are
being continually held up hy snow-
slides, while transportation to the
south is completely ice bound. On
Thursday and up till today communication with NelBon was practically cut
off. Passengers who left there in the
morning for the Coast had to walk into
Arrowhead over tbe ice. There was no
communication between Arrowhead
and Nakuip, the ice being of unusual
thickness and extent. A joint affort
will be made by the .-..a. Rossland nnd
Kootenay to break a passvge and tl.e
ice breaker will be called into requisition. To add further to the company's trials and tribulations a portion
of Slocan Lake has frozen over, for the
first time in 13 yours. Thero has been
no connection uver tho Crow line, but
efforts hive been made which should
result in success u-iless thc thaw of
the last dny or two has caused snow
to slide. The fuel problem remains
a serious tine and until older is revived out of the present chaotic state,
no one can say what to expect. From
east and west and middle west come
the same stories of stalled trains and
snowed-in communities asking for
relief and fuel, Now that the thaw
has come for a brief time tlie traffic
difficulties will be continued still further.

A Revelstoke Brakeman Crush-
to Pieces under Runaway
Train—Remains Gathered in
a Blanket.
Phoenix, Feb. 7.—The worst wreck
and totality that ever happened on the
Phoenix branch has just occurred,
when one man was killed outright and
a I le-l  runaway  to  train was de-
ii.olisl.ed, ll.e brakeman killed being
lite.ally gi..uml tu littlo pieces. The
liiin ol 19 . re cars bad left the tank
and stared down the hill, the ..ir
brakes being thou lasted and found in
working order. Later on the engineer
die.vered thai the brakes refused to
work and be was unable to stop lhe
train which was steadily gaining
speed until when passing the Raw-
bile mine thu spoeii is thought to
have easily exceeded 75 miles an hour.
Engineer McGuIre, the lirenuui, and
lhe brakeman stayed at their posts as
long at possible but linally leapt from
the trail, narrowly escaping death,
Brakeman 11. Ruahton while trying to
get duwn from an oro car slipped and
fell under the train, being lulled over
and over and ground to little pieces
under the wheels, the snow for 50
yards round being spattered with liis
blood. Both feet were cut off, his
head split in two, the budy frightfully
mangled and severed, aud the t.ack
was littered with particles of clothing,
llesb, bones, etc., a blanket being
required to get the remains together after the fatality. The engine
went over the hank 25 feet down while
tho ore cars arc piled in an iilmcst
inextricable mass iu thc ruck cut near
the Rawhide. Rushton was on his
first day as brakeman on the Phoenix
bill, having come here from Revelstoke. The wreck will probably cost
the C. P. It. $20,000.
Severe Injuries on  a Snow
Latest reports show today that no
trains arc moving at all, east, west or
south, slides blocking the track in
every direction. The worst block is
near Glacier where there is quite a
little colony of trains bound both
ways, stalled with their complement
o! wc.n y and benumbed passengers.
Eight snow ploughs within a stretch
of 40 miles are endeavoring to break a
way ihrough, but if the thaw con
tinui-s thc possibility is that traffic
may bo suspended indefinitely.
While engaged in clearing the track

depot, the snow plough lelt the rails

stove inside the car of the plough to

Now that the question of an
auxiliary power plant has beeii
brought up again it is only natural
lu suppose lhat the matter will be
brought to a head early this year,
aud ii we voice correctly the mouth
oi the people, the citizens will not
turn down any by-law which shows
that the proposition is being carried
out on a thorough business basis
and that in supplying power to the
C. P. R. ll.e contract between them
and the eity is made .-o as to protect the city in the cost of running
and leaving a moderate margin
uver and al the same time giving a
rate to the C. P. K. that is proportionate to their consumption and
that without being excessive. An
auxiliary plant is now necessary
for the economic lighting of the
citv and it is necessary too for the
production ...;' cheap power much of
which will readiiy be consumed by
the industries already in existence

heating or cooking of coal in a
retort, ns is done in gas works in
large cities, and such gas is consumed by ignition and explosion
in tl.e engine to give the motive
power.   A strong feature of the g.is
i producer plant is that it is practically self contained, being complete
in itself an.l automatic in action,
IThis docs away with the expensive
necessity for skilled engineers. The

maximum results at lhe minimum
of cost from a gas producer plant,
it is necessary to secure the best
gas engine obtainable, which means
a correspondingly large outlay, but
which will, loo, pay for itself in a
few years. However, an auxiliary
plant is necessary and once installed and in operation will repay lhe
city for its outlay and serve as an
additional inducement for industries of every kind and magnitude.
Let ll.e people see what sort of a
business proposition is being made
nnd they will not be so shortsighted
as to turn down anything which
will directly or indirectly benefit
Installation of Power Plant
Discussed and Plan of Rates
Submitted to C. P. R.
jV special iiueting ol the mayor nnd
city council was held ou Wednesday
night to finally pass and adopt the
two by-laws ut their third rending and
also to discuss the report of the Fire.
Water ii; Light committee on tlie proposed installation of an auxiliary
power plant and of the supply ol power and light to the C.P.R. Mayor
Brown anil Aid. Howson, Abrahamson,

for the third time ami passed unanimously. Tl..- by-law for the borrowing
of .|l.,0U0 Irom the Molaon'a Bank on

re.ul for the tl.i.d time and pass-.1.
The report of the Fir.*. Water & Light
committee on tbe supply ..f electric

The most delink) quotation reoeived
to date i» $17,01,0, (in place), (or two
eip.ii! ..nils, aggregation 3S0 h. p.
Vour committee recommends that the
aggregate sliould reaoh 400 h.p., the |
cost for wl.ieii is estimated at if20,0U0.
An additional building, coal bunkers
and siding would cost, say, $1,0110,

ami that tl.e security he on tlie whole
of tl.e Light and Putvor plants,
With regard to the rates at whioh
power should hi' supplied to lln:  I*. P.
It., a 1.taxi........ rate   ol  three   cuts
per K. W. hour is siiggeslt.il, and all. r
deducting Irom this revenue thus
obtained, tl... fixed charges on capital
ai.-.l ..pera.ing expenses, lhe city
sliould retain 20 per omit ol the balance, and rebate the remaining 80o.
This would eliminate the uncertainty
of a profit at a rnto less than three
cents, and no guarantee need he required us tn the quantity used.
This report was duly received und
laid on the table lor discussion.
Regarding the question ot a steam
or gi.s prod neing plant the latter was
dee...eil more ee1.1101nie.il and more
effective, twu units being recommended, aggregating 380 horse power.
Aid. Abrahamson suggested a sliding
scale for rule 1:1 the supply of power,
an.l favored lhe idea of installing the
plant lirst and then alter testing and
proving efficient, to then make the
proposition with the C. P. It.
Aid. Howson said that he thought
the C. P. R. were getting oil' very easy
in the rate suggested by the Fire,
Water A Light co.nniiltce and suggested thut the plan proposed by Col.
Tracey seemed a better proposition,
namely ol supplying power to the
railway company at 3c. per lv. Vi. for
tl.e lirst year, 2Jc. (or tlie second yenr
an.l 2c. for each succeeding year. Hy
referring to the figures the 2c. rale
was lound to be too low and not even
sufficient to safeguard the city in the
cost of production.
Mayor Brown said that l.e fell in
favor ol submitting tlie rates, as proposed by the committee, to the C.P.I..
ami felt assured  they  would  be accepted.   In discussing the advisability
ol putting the by-law, for borrowing
money on debentures (or tl.e installation of the plant before the people, it
was decided to await the reply (rom
the C. P. R. to the following resolution unanimously carried, and submitted by the council to the  railway I
company, that  with   regard  tn  the
rates at which power should be supplied to tl.e C. 1'. I... a maximum rate
of 3c, por K. \V, hour is suggested l-y
this council and after deducting from
this revenue thu. obtained the fixed
charges on capital and operating expenses, the city ihould  retain 20 p. r
cent ot the balance and rebate the r.-
miiniiig 80   per  cent.    This   iv. u ■:

had jusl returned frum

June morning, "what Is ibis spongy

"Oh!" answered Aunt Julia, examining It, "this is Hn; work of a gall-tly."
"And what, pray, Is a gall-llyV asked
"Doubtless you have seen them many
a time In your rambles in the country,'
replied Aunt Julia, "but did not know
wlwit they were; and what wonders they

nre small Hies, generally black lu color,

veritable fairies In the Insocl world,

The little sprite, upon mischief bent,
pierces the leaf, twig or bark, Inserting
un egg or a number of eggs, nnd at tho

produces the most extraordinary effects.
"That pari of the plant touched by the
fluid is forced into an abnormal growth,
ami rapidly incloses the egg:-. On leaves
the galls nre usually quite round and of
about the same consistency as a goOBe-

small coins, while others hang by strings
like bunchi B of currantB, Home are covered with leaflike appendages that look
like artichokes, while the gall of th"
rose Is clothed, as vou see, with a mass
of inug, BOfl filaments."
"Oh, I have often noticed these little
growths on the leaves, but never knew
what they were," said Lewis.
"Hereafter," paid Aunt Julia, "when

Tic '"motif" of thia familiar

transmogrification of tho tlotsnm

Thanksgiving ilitmer as shade down
the festivities gradually and gracefully to thc level of everyday living.

Begin we with tlie first course of
the family dinner: Soup may be
made, ns i shall show presently, of
the bones, or, technically speaking,
the "rack," of the big turkey. I
advise that this be deferred until
a late day of the week, when the
meat has been strippod off for other
purposes. Even bones are more
juicy when they arc kept covered.
A palatable bisque may bo compounded of tho traditional chicken-
pie, without which the conventional
Thanksgiving dinner would not de-
servo the mime.
Mince the meat very line. The
best way to do this is to run it
through the meat-chopper. Meanwhile, put the hones over the lire
with the gravy, tliiinic.il with warm
water. The bones must be crocked.
Simmer, covered, for two hours.
Mince and crush the remnants of
pie-crust, and dry them in the ovon
to crumbs, the finer the better.
Half an hour before dinner strain
the soup from the bones, and set it
back on tho range, seasoning to
tuste, and adding a cupful uf uys-
ter-liquur. When it boils, put in
the minced chicken, cook tun minutes, slowly, stir in the dry crumbs;
bring to the boil, add half n cupful
of hot milk in which has been melted a tnblespoonful of butter rolled
in a teaspoonful of cornstarch ond
As a "chickeu-and-oystcr bisque,'*
this will puss muster at any dinner,
uo matter who the guest may be.
If you have not enough pastry, substitute dried breadcrumbs. Judgment is required to apportion materials properly. If there be much
meat loft, increase the quantities of
other ingredients. Tho cornstarch
is added to prevent separation of
tlie. ingredients.
Turkey Hack Soup.
Ureuk (he newly denuded carcai. of

HERE  Ih  n  tradition  that  haa
come  to  uh  across  seas   and
through centuries that tho much
prized grapefruit of today Ib
mnn' oilier than tne mysterious forbidden fruit that grew iu lite Garden of
Eden, Perhaps H in* inn*. Perhaps, too,
its slight bitterness la symbolical »( the
heritage of suffering that Mother Eve
laid upon all succeeding generations
when she listened lo the voice nf the
tempter ami turned longing eyes upon
the tree of knowledge.
Certain it is that in some Eastern
countries the pomela, an it If sorne-
tlmea called, is still known as thc forbidden fruit, yet it would be hard to
lind a modern housekeeper who would
not willingly forgive Eve for her shortcomings when thia season rolls round
and she can add ihe appetizing dainty
to her menu to tempt the jaded palates
of those to whom she must eater.
Grapefruit is looked upon In some
households as an expensive luxury, hut
•when you consider th" heights to which
the price of oranges is Si arlng just now
and the scarcity of other fruits, ami
when you remember that In many markets the grapefruit may lm bought
three for a quarter, and that half nf one
is quite enough to put before each person, this notion scorns a hit exaggerated.
Of course, the primary use for grain-
fruit is as a Hrst course fnr breakfast,
luncheon or dinner, but it is sometimes
ised ns a dessert for a simple lunch,
md its possibilities in the way of
saliids and sherbets are almost unlimited.
For a simple home breakfast the corn
is usually removed, the fruit loosened at
the sides from the skin and a tiny bit
of sugar added lo it, lt is well to put
this sugar on with a skimp hand, for
many persons do not care for -too much
sweet, nnd It is always possible lo add
it afterward.
For a more elaborate breakfast, remove all the seed and white fibrous
parts, eut the pulp Intu pieces and mix
with cracked Ice, This, of course. Is
served in the shell of ihe fruit, and ts
perfectly permissible for the more ceremonious meals of the day, However, if
you want something a little different
■opportunity is not lacking.
You may take red and white California grapes, cut them in halves, seed
them and lay them about the edges of
the grape fruit. Or you may take Malaga grapes, seed them and pile them in
with tho sugar and pulp. Maple sugar.

sort, gives a peculiarly delicious flavor
to the fruit.

THERE Is nothing uglier than
dull, smeary-looking silver. It
is bad enough In a toilet service, but when ill-kept silver la
seen on a dining table, It presages
a carelessness that la fur from reassuring to the diner.
I have even seen at a formal dinner
where every other appointment waa
handsome in the extreme knives,
forks and spoons that would not have
passed muster with a careful housekeeper.
Such conditions are absolutely Inexcusable, as much for an ordinary family meal aa ai a formal function.
There are dozens of silver polishes,
soaps, liquids and powders, so quickly
applied and cffecUvo In results that
even tho heavy repousse dear to the
housewife can easily he kepi shilling.
lt is not enough,to give silver a
weekly cleaning, as is so much the
custom. Coal gas, steam and furuaco
heat all tarnish it quickly, while tho
dust from even the bcsMcept houdc
will soon dim a polished surface.
To keep silver bright utter use, it
should be washed at once wllh a
chamois leather soaked In warm,
aoapy water, rinsed thoroughly In
boiling water, and dried and polished
quickly with a soft cloth or a fresh
chamois skin.
This, to a well - trained dishwasher,
should be as expeditious as the ordinary
slipshod methods of drying lho table
sliver in constant Use,
If It becomes too clouded, yet one does
not tlnd il convenient to give It a regular cleaning, silver can be wonderfully
improved by a rub wllh a rouged
chamois, One of these should be lu every
well-equipped pantry, They are sure
lo rub iiff on hands and gown, especially when new, but are excellent fur
un emergency.
The mosl persistently and brilliantly
shiny silver I have ever seen belong**
to a woman whose miild confided to
me lhe secret of Its nood nppenrunco.
She always used pure alcohol Instead
of waler to moisten her silver powder.
Never use a t-llff brush or a rough
cloth on a plain surface, for scratches
dim will result.
A very occasional turning over nf all
one's silver to a jowelor for ropoltshlng
Is useful when one can altord the expense.

Now, If ln the beginning she would
make a cover for her book of kitchen
recipes out of while oilcloth, she
would obviate much of her woe. Oilcloth is pliable and It Is durable;
moreover, It can be wiped off with a
damp cloth after each using, and In
thus kept In a presentable condition

A WOMAN who found herself without friends, and with only her
house and furniture at her command, pluckily stuck the sign "Hooms
to let" In her front window and sat
down to await thc result. It came in
the shape of three young men, college
students, who looked her three best
rooms over, engaged them on th: spot,
and remained with- her for their entire college course.
Her success as a lodging housekeeper began that duy and continued
until a fortunate change in circumstances released her from the necessity for earning a living, but her case
is worth recording. Ono of thc three
first lodgers explained their coming in
this wise;
"We had been looking for rooms all
day, and were feeling pretty well disgusted when we chanced upon Mra.
P—(B sign, and somehow ll had a 'different' look. Her parlor was comfortable, too, not a bit suggest I vo of a
boarding house; her halls had no
smell of cooking, and the bathroom
wasO. K. I think the thing that took
most wiih us, however, was the 'lived-
in' look that the bedrooms had.
"Other houses were quite na dean,
ami often the furniture was handsomer, but In almost every instanee
the landlady had said, 'Of course, this
room will be very different when lhe
beds are made and the covers an* .tn
the dressing tables and waBhstands.'
I suppose they would have looked
different, but somehow vou can't always Imagine that difference when
you are running around looking for u
place to live In, and you aro mighty
apt to froeto on to the .hlng that
seems lhe most like hone"

The itevelt.ii.kcf Borii'd ol Trade ha.
just completed one of tbe must activ.
years of iis uock io promote tlie besl
interest* of tbo City of Kevelstoke an.l
the  surrounding   district.   Meetings
have been held mlli more than usual
regularily and great inierest has heen
displayed by the ...embers in tho busi

Considerable success bus attended the
representations of the Board on varl
ous mailers of public iulciist.
The paramo ...t .p'estion, asall'ect-
ing lho City of Revelstoke during tlie
past year, has been the serious  encroachment of the Colnmbla River on

over a yenr ago, and hns dredged out

projected plans are completed, is calculated to  (.liable  tlie River to scour

O'uirgeof works in this Province, has
now been  exhausted and the work is
now shut down for luck of funds.   It
is advisable  that this   Hoard  take
urgent action to represent to the Public Works Department at Ottawa tl.e
necessity of  placing immediately at
the disposal ot the Engineers the .'ur-
ther funds necessary for the completion of the  work, so that it may be
carried out belore high wnter.   Unless
this is done immediately il is possible

ties thai the lormer'i methods ol
handling freight were very inconvenient and unsatisfactory to the public and requested that arrangements
be mode lor payment of freight at the
freight sheds instead of at the station.
This suggestion has now been given
effect to, and Mr. Bradshaw, the Company's Agent, has now bis cilice at the
freight tbed, thus facilitating greatly
the transaction of business with the
freight department of the Railway,
Another matter whicli the Beard
has had in hand fur ll.e past two years
has been satisfactorily arranged. This
has reference to the Telegraph olliee,
the former location of which in the
C. P. lt. station was a great inconvenience to the public Tl.e Boaid
luccoed in getting telephonic communication and a messenger service
established with a view to modifying
thu inconveniences ol tl.e former location ol the office, but continuously
pressed for the removal uf the Telegraph Office tu tlio business centre if
the City, and the past year saw the
fulfillment of the Board's wishes by
the opening of tlie new telegraph olliee
on Mackenzie Avenue, a very convenient site.
Representations were also made to
the Dominion Express Company that
tho public requirements would be
better served by telephonic communication lieing established letween their
..llice and the business community,
and it is gratifying to know the
Board's suggestion in this respect has
been given effect to.

Grand Trunk Pacilic Company, The
Board regrets that, so (ar nu provision
has been made for this work, though
it is one of the most impnrla it works

yet been projected,
The Board has also urged on the
Provincial Government, cither independently or in conjunction with the
Oity Cfin-il, the erection ol buildings
in the City suitable (or Gaol and
Isolation Hospital, and it is a mutter
Ior regret that lit) provision has yet
been made lor these public necessities.
The question of hind settlement is
one of great importance to Revelstoke
and early in the year a conm.it.ee was
appointed to go lully into this question and report.  The matter lias been
ovci looked, so  that  it will he one of
the duties  ot  the new year on which
we are entering to   follow  up this
work.   There is no greater obstacle to
the progress of the district than the
difficulties thrown in the way of the
occupation  of  the public  lands by
settlers.    A great part of these lands
is in tlie railway belt, and considerable
areas of land suitable for settlement
are included in timber  berths.    Settlers  are  prohibited  from    making
entry on such hinds, though it will be
admitted that where land has a greater
value for settlement than for lumbering it is to tho interest of tl.e community that it be available for settlement.
Settlement on Provincial lands is
also hindered because of the want o
systematic surveys, und because of the
incomplete records available in the
Government Offices. This is a matter
the Provincial Government should be
urged to remedy.
Tbe  present  winter has shown the
necessity for tho completionof the A.
As  K.  railway, as for weeks the Fish
Creek and Lardeau districts have been
tu a large extent cut off from communication witii Revelstoke owing to
the  freezing  up of  the Arm.   The
charter for this road expired last year
and the  Board co-operated with the
people of the Fish Creek and Lardeau
districts in opposing the renewal of
the charter by the Dominion Government unless under conclusive arrangements for the construction of the road.
The  Board regrets thc Government
ignored tho representations of the
people most vitally interested in this
work.    Tlie A.  &,  K. railway is ol
special value to Revelstoke, Fish Creek
and  the  Lardeau  in  that it would
complete the chain of communication
so much desired  with the southern
portion  of the Prouince, and would
give a route of   unsurpassed grade,
ovor whicli the heaviest trains could
be battled independent of tlie steep
grades of the main line.   The completion of this railway  would thus make
Revelstoke the great transportation
entrepot  ol  the  interior of  Britisli
While the Board has formerly made
great efforts to have Revelstoke placed
on a more Iavor.tl.le schedule ub regards height rates nothing was done
in the matter during the past year.
This is a matter tlmt Bluuld not he
lost sighl of however, and no effort
should be spared through the Dominion
and Provincial Government, and the
Railway Commission to get better
terniB lor Revelstoke as regards height
rates. II, however, these better terms
om only be got hy competition let us
'ry to get that competition either by
...cans ot it.. connecting line with tlie
Great Northern to the south or the
Grand Trunk to the north.

Tlie Provincial Government were
asked for a grant of if.500 towards con
structing n Irail up Mt. Victoria, behind the eity of Revelstoke, the idea
being that ihe balance ivould he raised
by subscription. It was understood
this would be available, and the Board
were disippoii.ted tu lind tha work
could not be curried out during the
past season. With its beautiful park,
the grandeur of the view obtainable
from the summit and the easy acces-
lability ol the mountain from thc city
it is believed the currying out of this
work would pruve a great attraction
to visitors as well as residents.
Another valuable work 80 far as
supplying attractions to tou.ists and
sportsmen is concerned, would be the
opening of the old Eagle Pass road,
whicli would give ac .-ess to some of the
best fishing streams in the district.
Iu timbering ol this part of its
work and with it view tj preserving
the water supply of the city to tl.e
utmost extent, ihe Board asked the
Dominion Government to have Mt.
Victoria reserved aB a public park to
the extent of five miles square. The
Board also took steps to urge improving the protection ol lish and game in
tlie district.

Tlie Board had under consideration
during tl.e year several public works
ol value to tlie town and district, but
regrets that so far tbe representations
made have not had tlie desired effect.
A traffic bridge across the Columbia
River at Revelstoke is yearly becoming a greater necessity. Tlio large
lumbering Industry carried on hy tho
Revelstoke Sawmill Company at the
Big Eddy, and the loot that thu lands
ou the west side ol the river are l>ei»g
taken up tor settlement, emphasise
tlie necessity ol the work, which it is
hoped the Provincial Government will
make provision Ior at an early d 'at,
cither as a provincial work or in cun-
junction with the City,
The coiintructii.ii of a road to con-
i.eet the lauds ni.lsi.h- tho City to tlie
north of iMn.ckui.zio Avenue wai alio
ii view of tlio great value to Revelstoke and district of the lumber industry the Board urged on the Provincial Government lhat effective
measures be taken to preserve our
forests from the ravages of fire, and
arrangements have been made by
which bush foreman and scalers are
appointed deputy fire wardens with
authority to tako all necessary steps
to suppresBS forest fires. The Dominion Government have done good work
in this direction. There is, however,
still room f..- more effective measures
being taken fur the protection of our
forests and it is hoped the Dominion
and Provincial Government will spare
no efforts to mako buoI. protection as
effective as possible.
Recognising that Rovelstoke is in
tlie heart of the finest scenery in
Canada ol Mountain, River, Like and
Forest, the Board has taken an active
part in assisting the work of advertising the tourist attractions of the
district. Tourist business is among
the most valuable a city can have.
With up-to-date hotel accommodation
trails to Mt, Victoriu, Clachnacuddeu
It is well-known that the demand
for labor in this district is far in excess of tlie supply, and with a view
to encouraging immigration of a de-
Birable class to this district the C.P.R.
were urged to grant an extension to
British Columbia of the immigrant
rates hitherto iu lorce as far as
Recognising the value of cheap
power in promoting industries, the
Board offered to co-operate with the
City Council in furthering the establishment of a power plant in Revelstoke, and it is hoped the enterprise
projected by the City Council will
soon become an accomplished fact,
With a view to discussing fully with
prominent representatives of the Dominion nnd Province the Board met
Hon. W. Templeman. Minister of
Marine, and Hon R. McBride, Premier
ot the Province, on the occasion of
their visita to the city and impressed
on them the requirements of the city
and district Irom the respective Governments which ihey represent
The Board has a heavy year's work
abend and asks tlio co-operation ol all
interested in the welfare of the city
and district,    lu the preceding paragraphs of  this  report  are  outlined
many   public   requirements   which
should still be kept before tl.e respective Governments! and pressed forward
till tbey are accomplished.   Such are
the traffic bridge across the Columbia,
land settlement,   Canoe  River  trail,
railway rates, public buildings as gaol
and isolation hospital, river protection,
promotion of tourist irallic.   To these
should  be added  the questiuns of a
Dominion Building  for  PoBt  Office
and Custom House, in a central location, tlie opening up of the Big Bend
by tramway round Death Rapids, and
steamboat   communication   un   the
upper' river.   Anuther important work
which  the   Provincial    Government
should either take up or assist is the
construction   ol   a    tramway  from
Beaton to Camborne.    At present the
development of the  Fish  Creek  district, which is one of the richest mineral sections ol lhe Province, is badly
handicapped for want ol better transportation  facilities.    With all  the
large expenditure on the wagon  road
between the  points  mentioned  the
road is in an almost inaccessible position during a considerable portion of
the yer, and a  tramway  seems  tho
only effective means of giving that
important dislrict the transportation
facilities it should have.
One of the greatest draw.backs lo
Revelstoke is the lack ol good roads
lending oul of the ciiy. A work that
should have attention at tho bunds of
thc Provincial Government, is the
construction ol a good wagon road as
far as Greely Creek. This would give
access to good tanning lands in the
Illecillewaet valley.
Another important work required
to open up land whicli should be made
available for settlement to the south
ol Revelitoke ie the extension of the
wagon road leading south from the
city to Wigwam, and it would be well
