A telegram was received yesterday
by T. Kilpatrick announcing the death
in Victoria yesterday of William Newman, a former resident of Revelstoke
i nd one of the best known of old
timers In the district.
Mr. Newman came to Revelstoke in
IS86 as roadmaster of the Mountain
division, under Superintendent Mar-
pole, this being the year the Cunad-
lan Pacific railway opened. Until
l->97 the headquarters oi the division
were at Donald, and when in this
year they moved to Kevelstoke, Mr.
Newman moved with other otlicials,
taking from the lirst an active part
in the welfare of the city, fn 1900-01
he served as alderman. He wus a
prominent member of the A.F. & A.
M. In earlier days before suowsheds
and other devices for the protection
of the track were provided und up-to-
date equipment for clearing slides
was available, the lute Rouflmaster
Newman was noted for the manner in
which he coped with winter troubles
in the mountains, spending days and
even weeks ut u time on the road,
I.gating slides and keeping the track
clear for traltic.
In 1905 as a reward for his long
and faithful services be wus promoted
by his old chief Mr, Marpole who is
now vice president of tbe E. & N.
railway, to the position of general
roadmaster of that portion of the
Canadian Pacific railway system und
until a few months ugo, when he received a pension from the compuny,
was in active service.
On the mountain division Mr. Newman was respected and loved by all
with whom he came in contuct, und
his removal to Victoria upon his promotion was the occusion for a ban
quet and many other demonstrations
in his honor.
He leaves a widow, two sons, one
George, for many years a resident at Arrowhead, and a daughter
Mrs. Shearman, who now lives at
A well attended meeting of the committees selected to revise the prize
list of the Revelstoke fall fair, was
held in the city hull last night und
an animated discussion as to the
prizes to bc oflered took place in
which live ladies who attended us
representatives of the committees up-
pointed for thc women's departments
took part.
Among other changes made in the
prize list it was decided to make a
distinction between canned und preserved fruits and to offer prizes In
each department. Prizes will also be
offered for wines, cider and vinegar,
rnd distinction will probably be made
between bread baked with and without sugar and shortening.
N.  R.  Brown on behalf  of himself
and  Mrs.  Brown,  offered three prizes
for bread to he baked by girls under

In the poultry department prizes
will be offered for exhibits of brown,
white and tinted eggs us well as for
dressed poultry. In the vegetuble
class a prize will be offered for the
Uncle Sum variety and lollis. instead of 20i':s. will be the largest amount required to be shown. In the
collection of potatoes 12 potutoes of
each variety instead of lOIbs. of each
will be called for.
It was decided by the committee to
adhere to the dates originally fixed
lor the fair out of deference to the
wishes of the merchants who objected to the Canadian Pacific railway
pay day being one of the days of the
fair. The fair will accordingly be
held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday,  September  17,  18 and 19.
T. E. L. Taylor, secretary, reported
that a ready response had been made
by ladies who had been asked to
provide exhibits of preserves for thc
Victoria  fair.

resentatives. Through the recent redistribution the ll constituencies
have been made over Into I'*'. and
with the double representation from
the city of Winnipeg, there were
altogether  10    seats to be BUed,   Of
these ID seats, according to latest
reports 2*5 have returned Conservatives and -I Liberals and for three
scats the elections are deferred. If
the recounts and petitions effect no
change, and if the government wins,
as it is likely to do, the three deferred elections, thc Roblin government
will have in the next legislature a
majority Of seven, as compared with
a majority of fifteen in the last
house, Many governments have been
successfully carried ou with a small-
i r margin.
For the loss ol seats by
the government there are several explanations, The Conservative party
no iiouiii missed the splendid organ
i/ing ability ol Hon, Robert Rogers,
v ho in i it t awa is unable to devote
the close attention to Manitoba .if
fairs which he gave when member ol
the provincial government, The school
question is still a [actor in Manitoba
politics and the Coldwell amendments
to the school act were condemned by
the Grand Orange lodge ai its convention in Regina and the support ol
p section of the Orangemen ol Manitoba has been alienated. The Hob -
iin government has also Inevitably
Buffered Irom the tact that it lias held
oilice for Fourteen yens, and many
electors, though not dissatisfied with
the government's policy, are inclined
to give the opposition a turn.
The Liberals have also offered to
the electors a policy which was calculated i" catch votes rather than
tn ie.- put into operation, it included compulsory education; obligatory
teaching ol English; larger grants for
schools; educational facilities for
every child; repeal ol the Coldwell
amendments; referendum on banish

Thirteen to Four is Score—Wet
Day Disarranges Play
of Home Team
The baseball match yesterday he -
"Iween Vernon and Revelstoke, resulted in a win tor Vernon, the score being 13 to 4. It was a wet sloppy day
•.me likely to throw a team's piny off
.vhich accounted for the low score by
Hevclstoke. Each team used two
pitchers, but it did not seem to make
:my difference to the home team. In
the score hy innings the fourth inn -
ing will doubtless explain the large
'lumber of runs scored by Vernon.

Clapham agreed to throw both men

Clapham secured a strong hold on his
opponent  but with a  (piick turn Tay-

got to grips with the champion and
quickly rushed Clapham around the
It was evident from the first that
Jackson was going to put up a fight,

were going it it very strong and
some quick and clever work -was seen
Half nelsons were of no avail on
Jackson who secme/l to break almost every hold Clapham applied.
With a quick spurt Jackson forced
Clapham ou the defence, and only
with a hard tussle did the English -
man get out of danger. Both men
were perpirslng Ireely and thc work
was still going strong when 15 minutes were called.
Again Clapham got behind the Ar-
rowhead favorite, and finally secur-
ing a powerful lock forced Jackson's
shoulders to the mat, after 21 minutes. Clapham defeated both men in
31 minutes. The match was the best
ever seen in the  Kootenay's.

cases saved the crop from absolute

On the Emancipation in the Coquihalla valley, Messrs. .Merrick and
Thompson are starting a new tunnel
to cut the lead at a depth in the original tunnel. It is anticipated that owner
the new tunnel will open up a body
of rock sufficient to prove the value
of the lend. Messrs Oscar Nelson &
Co., are doing development on
the Blue Bell property and have uncovered some excellent showings. The
trail from the road bas been completed tc the latter property, affording
reaily means of access to all points
of the strike. Some healthy oilers of
cash for claims and interests have !
been made by outsiders during the
past week, but owners prefer to retain their claims, under the conviction that the strike is of genuine value. \.t .'3-Mile on the Skagit, work
is being carried on by owners, and
good rock continues to be brought
in from the various properties in

Last Friday Arthur aud William

Irom the Omineca country after spending some weeks in the placer country
and they brought back some very
nice sample,-! of gold with them. They
got in a little too early and had tc
wait a while for the ground to thaw
out before thev could start to work,
and then they were able to work on a
week when they lound the proposition',
dilterent Irom what tbey expected. It
was too deep and they were unable to
gel water on the ground. They have
however, another place on their property which is much easier to prospect and they left two of the hoys
in there to prospect this summer.

News has been received this week ot
several good mining strikes on Tata-
pin lake lying between Hahine and
burns lakes. This is Similar to that
found in this locality but it is said
that it carries higher gold values.
The principal locators have been
Messrs Anderson and Holing, but it
is reported that there are a dozen
men in the vicinity who have made
discoveries of more or less importance. A new strike has been made on
the low range hack of the Thompson
farm, about l"> miles up the valley
from Telkwn, bj Kreel Clark and Sam
13ush. Five claims were staked by
the original locators, and quite a few
additional have been recorded by other prospectors attracted by the strike
The mineralized area lies about sii
miles in an easterly direction from
Knockholt, a station on the Grand
Trunk Pacific about midway in the
liuckley valley and is nlso about two
miles Irom the main government wagon road. The claims are all below
the timber line. The ore a copper
sulphide, is plainly visible along the
lead, and shows in stringers from an
inch to in inches in thickness all
through the vein, which vartes from
two to ll) feet in width. Indications
point to this sulphide ore carrying
'enough gold to make the property
worth a considerable hit of development wi rk, considering its nearness
to transportation.—riniithcrs Tribune
A high authority ou Granby Con-
sol (dated affairs is credited with the
Statement that alter July 15, the
company's smelter at Hidden creek
will be producing at the rute ol $175,-
liOi' net monthly. This is approximately two and a half times the div- e
idend requirements of the Granby
company, which are 3225,000 quart -
irly, in addition to the earnings of
thc Grand Forks plant, which in
June produced i,7o'i,non fbs. ol
blister copper, hesides a considerable
quantity of gold aud silver.
When construction began at Hidden :
creek  about three years ago It    was j
estimated     that there   were 5,800,000
tons ol ore in sight, and late in 1913
■the engineers'     reports showed that
this had      been increased to 8,000,000 i
tons.    The  latest  estimate is  12,000,- j
e-m  t ..ns  in  the     mines  Immediately
tributary to the smelter, and in other properties of the company     along
the north Pacilic coast  that will contribute to the plant   there are 7,ilu0,- i
    blocked out,    which
makes the total reserves In sight not
less thun 19,000,000 tons. Thc value
of the ore is greater than thc original estimates, and the operating ex-
pense much less, coke being delivered
at the smelter for about 3 per cent,
less than anticipated.
All the     properties     acquired now
have  been  paid  for,  and  the  most  ol
them already are shipping to   Hidden
creek,   where  the  2000 tons daily capacity  smelter is  being  operated    to
