Snow Shoe Party Entertained
at Big Eddy Mill
" L A-M-l' wick, lamp wick,
Wick, wick, wick, wick—Lamp wick."
Such were the enes tint echoid aud
re-eohoed among the bills and waiting
trees (rom 11 score nr more ol young
and lualy ihro.ua, clear on the frosty
air ou Thuisd y night, hb a gay party
of snow sheers in picturesque garb
wended their way across the gleaming
surface ol the snow crust up bill and
down dile on a tramp to the Dig Eddy
mill. The assembly mn called at the
Opera House from wbeie the train per -
in twui and three*—chiefly twos—
sped easily and more nr lei-s gracefully
over the snow un what turned out to
be the jilliest tramp of the season
The suow was perfe t inr walking and
excellent time waa made till the B'g
Eddy was reached when, casting al!
reserve aside the party indulged in a
great game of "1 slide you slide,"
down the steep declivities to the river,
causing endless fun and excitement.
8everal pairs of ski if were brought in'o
requisition which heightened the
merriment On reaching the mill
village ail were ready lu unlit se iheir
shoe strings, and tiiis being dm e,
mine boat Hess, bis genial [ace beaming with good humored welcome,
rounded up his guests into llie conk-
house mess room, where a rare repast
had been prepared, Nothing loath,
the crowd accepted the invitation with
zeal lind after a briel but appropriate
grace ny Mr. J. MoMartin, whu hy ihe
way had made the trip nut on akiis,
the merry tune ul the kuife and lurk
and the soft lapping ul steaming tea
anil coffee, iieruiiogled with the running ripple of chart' and repartee, were
the only Bounds tbat could tie heard
lur the next half hour.
After tbe appetite, whetted hy the
gloriuus exercise of the tramp, had
been satiated aud the inner man and
inner woman appeased, the room was
cleared and a series uf dances ami
games started, which would have
caused much amusement to any
person who chanced to pass that way,
the din and whirl being surprising.
The dancing could be rightly termed
the "dancing marathon", so killing
was the pace. As the hours flew by
the enthusiasm and hilarity rose high,
the musicians bravely weilding their
bows ever tlie melodious strings uf
their violins, inwardly remarking,
"and to think that city fulk should
bave audi carryings uu." The host
at the close 0! the dance supplied hut
coffee ail mund, and once more shoe
string* were tightened and adjusted,
and with cheers for tbeir kindly host,
Mr. Hess, tlie party shut down the
slupe across tlie Ed Jy aud hit the trail
for borne, the only diversion this time
being the frequency of the ladies Bhue
Btrings coming untied, rtquiring the
aid of \he only too-willing men—and
the muni away up in the sky humming the well known ditty, "The
mniiti has got his eyes 011 yuu, su he
careful wbat you do."
Home—and ihe happy hut tired
suow -diners dispersed with a tiinil
burst ol "L A-M-l' wick, lamp wick,
wick, wick, wick, wick, lamp wick,"
which died away un the frost laden
air witli a silvery laugh.
Matsuda v. McLennan Ends in
The wrestling match between Rory
McLennan and M Matsuda, oatoh-as-
catch-can, on Thursday nigbt, ended
in a fiasco, the match being declared
utl alter 1 hour and 40 minutes
wrestling. The contest was not very
exciting ll. .ry being on tbe defence the
whole time and uot tryitig to wrestle
his opponent, Matsuda was the clever
or man ul the two, iu spite of his handicap in weigh! i.f 50 lbs. The Jap
secured a fall in 17J mina. with a full
Nelson aud scieeor hold. Io the second bout tlie match lacked excitement
being slow and without any particular
point, and ended by tbe Jap pulling
Rory'a hair, which caused the latter
to reluse to wrestle any more although
lie didn't claim auy foul Irom Referee
Lynch, except that such tricks weie
not in the contract. The match waa
declared utl much tu llie disgust ol the
arge audience, who expected to see a

Plans and Specifications Being
Prepared for Fine Brick or
Cement Structure in East
End of City.
The ad mi noe. and progress ol Revel
stoke c»i .it be more accurately
gauged an.1 mure conclusively ilriu by
the increa>e in tlie number ol cliil-
dien attending uur sch ols. Tne
present building, alilniugh nl ar.iple
proportions, is over crowded and inadequate fur tie large number of
scholars and every available room has
been utilized,even the top storey. As
regards this top storey, it was never
intend.d that it should be converted
into claBs rooms, but the increasing
number ol children made it necessary
that these rooms should te used, although it was understood to iiu only
temporary as the light, was imperfect
and general arrangements uusuited
[or convenience, a. tl in .re over the
danger in cse .1 lire wa- (trea Ij in-
creas.il. I'he question of » new mhnul
building Ins neeii the subject fur eon-
tinUil discussion lately anil with a
definite idea tli .1 the scheme wuuld be
Favorable to the oity as n whole, the
tr lisle s have engaged Mr. \V. King of
tbis city, who is now preparing plans
fur a new building to be ereoted in the
east. end. The plana will be ready in
ab.iut two weeks and consist ol aline
brick ur content hlu.-.k structure nl twu
Storeys, containing eight ci .s? r urns,
teaches rooms, assembly ball, principal's ullice, cloak rooms aud lavatories
these latter to be titled witli hot and
cold water. The ciass rooms will be
airy and commodious.
It is the intention of the trustees to
abandon the top li ior rooms of the
present buildiug us well as the high
school building, and accommodate the
pupils of the latter ou the first rlunr
ol the public sidiool building.
According to tbe plans tbe prop .sed
new school is a handsome building
quite equal to that ol larger cities. It
is not thought that tbe ratepayers
would turn down the by-law when
put before the people, since all must
recognize the value of education as the
leading factnr in the prosperity of the
city and B. C. as a whole.
Immediate Construction Is Reported-Valuable Link
From rumors and reports that have
been authenticated it is inure than
likely that the construction ol tlie
Arrowhead & Kootenay Railway, which
will give a direct oon Dec tion to llevelstnke with the Crow's Nest branch ul
tbe C. i'. R., will be commenced at au
early date.
The importance ol this railmad cannot be uver estimated, as by its means
a large portion of the heavy freight
trallic ol the C. I'. R. will be hatiltd
over the road through Revelstuke,
making the city a great railway junction. In view of the fact that it ia
prnbable that the whole ol the grain
traffic (rom the prairies will be sent
west to Vancouver, the value ol the
link can easily be seen. Besides tbil
there is a large and valuable area ul
rich land which needs development
contiguoua to the railroad, aud any
further extension ul tbe charter will
be a detriment tu tbe development and
opening up uf these districts.

the   kevnut
An ex-alderman called on us
yesterday to expostulate with us in
our content ion in a recent issue
that the snow service this year has
been better than lhat of previous
ones. We still claim that good
work has been done, and especially
on the sidewalks during the heavy
snow, as the walks have been wider
this year than usual. We particularized sidewalks, and up to Ibe
time of writing lust week the sidewalks were fairly good, though
since that time the thaw has made
walking particularly dillicult, Ke-
garding the streets, the public perhaps have cause for comment since
the council never really made use
of the big Il}-foot plough to take off
the snow which would have enabled a double truck to bave been
cut on the roads. Tben again it
is doubtful if rig and bus drivers
would keep tn their respective sides
of the streets and not converge to
and development should I one central track, even though they
f the policy of I may have hud a little ploughing
and track making to do on tbeir
own account. Since the recent soft
weather the pi ten holes in the
streets have increased consider
opinion.      The    contention     lhat
women would   not  take advantage
uf   a   franchise cannot be substantiated   and   does   not take iuto account   that    woman   toils quite as
faithfully as her husband or brother
in tlie building ni) "' the borne and
that her  interests in tbe welfare of
the country are  quite  as strong as
theirs.       It    is   only that  she bus
been   educated   through successive
generations in the belief that voting
is   outside   here  ''sphere," that she

the first for some time. The cause of
the puisoiiiug is tiie fact that there

On Icing asked what means should

day nt Vancouver, RevelBtoke ]and
Nelsou. The principal features of tl e
system are the reduction in expense
through the curtailment ol clerical
labor; quick action in the manage-
ment ol affairs through the abolition
ol endless red tape, and a better een
tralisiil.ion of Ilic staff operating under
tlie superintendents reporting to the
general superintendent, One result
of the new system has been a reduction of the clerical staff on the Pacific
division of between 20 and 30 men.
Under the new system all correspondence affecting the operating business
of the company goes to the general
superintendent and is then forwarded
to the superintendent, who secures
the desired information, and then forwards a reply direct to the general
superintendent. In thia way endless
liles ol correspondence will be done
away with and the rapidity of com
muiiication effected.

All Work Guaranteed.   Prioee Moderate
Kootenay Members Lay Claims
for Establishment
One of the chit f subjects ni diecus-
aion at the Wed 111.- lay's sitting ul tbe
Federal House at Ottawa waa the
question uf experimental farms.
Martin Burrell. Yale-Caiiboo, urged
upon the Minister of Agriculture the
desirability of establishing one experimental station in the arid districts
of Biltiak Columbia, where irrigation
is neceaaary lur proper prod re tion of
Iruit, eic. Owing tu tlie great dilliculty
of reclamation uf tie still, such a station tvtui'u lie i.I gieat service at the
pre-etit lime when peuple are ex-
perimenifug Hi.il Hie mure ur less in
the dark, tiie cum-tqneuce being a
guud deal nl c .illusion.
Mr. Bui nil saiil the fruit industry
of Brireli Columbia is oue which is
getting to leof enormous importance
to Canada, and he hoped tbe minister
would see his way clear tu luok into
the matter at once and establish a station at a point in British Columbia
where be considered it would do the
moat good.
A. S. Guodeve, Kootenay, preased
upon the government the necessity of
of further experiment in the growing
ol Iruit foi tbe purpose ol improving
the market vslues ol truite Such
work, he was confident, would much
mure than pay fur itsi If.
C. A. Magrath, Medicine H.it, supported tbe principle nf the resolution
it) general, but especially in reference
to the we*t. No new country could
be settled without experiments in
ag .culture, he snid, and nn tiiai basis
he heartily supported  the  resolution.
linn. Sydney Fisher ac: Opted tbe
resolution, expressing the policy ol the
government. It would be dillicult,
however, to meet the demand for experimental stations on account of the
expense. Consequently it wus necea
amy tu make a choice, ai.d in making
tbat cbuice the government waa
guided by the principle uf establishing
farms where they wnu'd serve l.irgcr
piipulatii.il rather than smaller pupu
latinn, nr whore conditions were such
that ilu results securul would be applied uulj tu a narrow range. In B
C, be said, the government intended
tu establish 11 farm un Vancuuver
Inland and une on the mainland. In
the near fulure il would be necis-ary
to establish several experimental larms
in British Columbia.
[It mn be remembered that the
lncal Board of Trade toik the matter
up recently, forwarding resolutions to

Spokane Wins Fight
Chicago, March 5,—The famous
Spokane rate case, whioh bus  been in
the hands of the commission Iir more
tlntii two years, is nuw will lhe printers. Dis understood that the decision will lie given within a week and
that ii is fiVurabli1 to Spokane, lt is
rumored in railw .y circles thai the
commission Imlds that the transcontinental freight ratea In Spokane shall
be reduced between TiO and 20 centB
per loillhs. Tbe lirst figure is said to
be tlie reduction ordered on lirst-class
article-i, and the last ligure is the
reduction on filth class. Reductions
on the other classes range between
these figures. Spokane complained
against having to pay, in the majority
of casea, tbe rate to the Pacific coast,
pluB the local rate from there back to
Spokane, which tlie 11111 roads said waB
necessary because if the water competition.
Apropos ol the above, the C.P.R.
bave alwayscuntoudeil lhal Kevelstoke
lias been placed un a par with Spokane in the matter ni freight ratea, as
the basis fur charges. .Nuw 1 hut these
ratea have I een reduced regarding
Sp kuue, it is unly reasonable tu expected that Revelstuke will Ite similarly affected,
