Engineer Dewar and His Fireman
Beattie Dead as Result of
Accident Near Rogers' Pass
Yesterday-—Train left Track
Alexander Dewar, engineer, and .1.
Beattie, fireman of the locomotive on
she second section of No. ti train east-
bound, were killed in a wreck which
occurred near Griffiths' siding, easl of
lingers' Pass, about two o'clock on
Friday afternoon, The cause of the
accident has not yet been ascert lined,
but it is thought that il might have
been due to a rail bent by heat
or a broken llange. The train was
a "deadhead" composed of twelve
empty cars which were being hauled
easl. Xo one was on it except the
train crew and six porters. Fortunately no one besides the engineer and
fireman was seriously hurl.
The train was running through the
pass at about thirty-live miles an hour
when the engine left the truck and
rolled down the incline currying nine
of the twelve cars wilh it. lu the fall
it struck the telegraph pole and carried
down the wires, shut ting oil communication in thai way. Oliver Jones,
front brakesman, was in one of the
cars that went down and he said he
rolled over several limes, but escaped
without any worse Injury than a bud
bruise iu the side The crew got out
nnd drew Beattie's body, scalded from
head to loot from the wreck of the
engine lying on the. lope. Dewar niusl
have jumped |or been ■lirown out, as
he was lying unconscious sonic distinct'from the engine with both legs
broken and a cut in bis skull.
Some of the men made for the nearest telegraph offlce and sent word of
the accident, Thero were some medical men coming on the second section
of No. 07 westbound, and the railway
company got them to go to (he assistance of tbe injured men with as little
delay as possible. A relief train was
also sent oui from Kevelstoke with
doctors aboard. When they reached
the scene of accident both the injured
men were still living, bul Beattie died
on the return journey. Dewar reached
the hospital here about ten o'clock.but
died an hour alter his arrival. His
legs were broken in three places and
be had a deep cut in the skull. He
was married only about two years ago
and leaves a young wife and a baby
daughter, Mrs. Dewar is distracted
with grief and has the wannest sympathy of the community in her affliction.
Beattie, the fireman, was unmarried,
He came here from Scotland a comparatively-short time ago, and il was
bis second trip out as fireman, The
accident tied ap through traffic on the
line for several hours, delaying the
second section of No. 117 eastward
bound and No. IK) westbound, hut. tbe
wrecking crew went out and last night
the line was all clear again.
An Inquest on the dead engineer and
fireman "ill be held liy the coroner,
Dr. Hamilton, on .Monday at 2 p.m.

Matheson Dies from Injurias—
Fractured snd Arm Broken
A. (i. Matheson, a man employed at
the Big Eddy mill, died in tbe hospital
here yesterday morning as a result of
injuries received from being struck by
tlie locomotive of No. IMI at the
entrance of lhe ('ohmihia rivei-bridge
mi Thursday morning, li is reported
that Matheson had lieen drinking, and
a companion was trying to assist bim
back from the city to the mill. At the
curve just west of the bridge Matheson
•lopped and stubbornly refused logo
further, but seated himself hy tin; side
of the track,as ii seemed to bis companion well nut iif the way of danger,
It appears that as tlie train rounded
tbe curve he must have leaned over
toward it. He was struck by the
engine, bis skull I'raclnii-d and bis
right anu broken. Tbe train pulled
up and brought bill) to the city en tlie
baggage   car.    He   was  taken   to  the
hospital, hut never recovered consciousness.
The coroner, Dr. Hamilton, will hold
an inquest to-day.

Special Police Still lifter Train Robbers-
Believed to be Qrganisad Gang
Advices from Kamloops state that
while pursuit for the train robbers
around Ashcroft has proved fruitless,
the chose is still being kept up with a
hundred special police ou the trail. It
jl now believed by the police thai the
hold-up at Ducks was the work ol part
uf a gang of aliout twenty crookslrrom
the western slates who have lately invaded the province.
It was reported that the police bad
found traces iif Decker's murderer but.
to far no capture has I u made.   A
woman who saw suspicious characters
hanging around Kamloops before the
robbery, has Identified tin- man shot

Mayor Brings Up Interesting Question—
Permission Granted for Apron on River
Little business of Importance cann
before the Council at lasl night's meet
ing. Those present were .Mayor Lind
mark, Aid. Wells, McDonald, Kimberley and .Stone,
A letter was read froin It. Gordon,
Government Agent, saying that he
had been advised by the public  works
engineer that there was no objection
lo the city putting its sewers through
the mattress on the liver bank on tbe
plans submitted, but that it was imperative that the culvert should he
carefully inspected and kept in repair
at all times.
The communication was considered
very satisfactory and the clerk was
Instructed to acknowledge it.
The live stock commissioner wrote
that Major James Shepherd, Canada's
foremost authority on road making
would be in the province this fall, arid
would lecture In-fore the council on
this subject if tbey desired it. At, the
close of his tour he would be open to
make arrangements with municipalities for practical demonstration work.
The mayor said he thought it would
be a good thing to have bim come and
lecture, and they might invite Ihe
Hoard of Trade and llie Trades and
Labor Council Lo come '.'11111 hear him
Aid. Kimberley thought lhu meeting
should lie public.
The mayor said that  wa.
they might consider later.
Aid. McDonald moved thai they
invite him to come, nnd the clerk was
instructed to notify the livestock commissioner to lhat effect.
Dr. Tlioinii-', veterinary surgeon,
reported lhat he htul examined all the
cattle byres within the city limits, and
found all satisfactory but one, which
was too low for proper drainage.
The clerk explained that this byre
was not occupied at present, and the
owner said it was not li tely In be
A letter was read froin the Standard
of Empire newspaper in London, offering to advertise the cily in that paper
and the London Standard at the rate
of $10.80 a week for a small space,
either weekly or fortnightly. A fortnightly insertion would cost. $145 for
six months or $200 for a year.
The mayor said this question had
come before the Council last year, but
tbey had not seen fit to do anything.
They had good fruit lands that
might be advertised, and be had hoped
that some of their live real estate men
would have done that instead of leaving it lo the city,
Aid. Wells thought lhe offer should
he laid aside until tbey bail something
special to advertise. 11 was no use to
advertise for men to come bere to buy
land if it was held at itil'i' an acre.
The letter was laid aside.
The mayor brought up the question
of the cily putting in four-inch sewer
pipes from the street lines to Ihe
buildings as far as lhe plumblt'g work
began. This bad been spoken of some
time ago. 11 was ilu night lhal the
work might lie done by issuing live
years debentures to cover the cost, and
allowing the ratepayers to make repayments mi a frontage tax. It would
he easier for tlie ratepayers and wuuld
enable the Council to have the work
done in a systematic manner. They
would have to make it compulsory and
in order to be effective every house
must be connected. It would of enure
require a bylaw. The cost of the pipe
and superintendence be estimated al
10 cents a foot, and Mr, Sinclair hud
offered to do the digging and lllling-in
for 65 cents a foot. It would conic to
about $i"> to $35 a  lot.   If anyone
wished to pay the whole cosl withih
00 or 110 days be could do so.
Aid. Kimberley objected to the proposed charge of 56 cents a foot for
digging. Ue considered thai if a man
wished to do lhe digging himself ami

throughout   the  Presbyterian world.
Today, July   10th,  is tbe date   of   bis
birth. A great monument is being

Board of Trade Wants One to
Include Registry Office-Ore
Samples for Seattle Exhibit
Asked For.
The dog days are apparently having
their clfect on the citizens of llevelstnke for lhe attendance Ht the board
of trade meeting on Thursday evening
was very slim. Nevertheless some
mutters ol considerable Importance
were considered, among which the
most important were tbe erection of a
new courthouse which should also include a In nd registry ollice; and a
special mineral exhibit for the Seattle
W, M. Lawrence, the president, said
he had been invited to meet Mr.
Bowles of the C.P.R. in Vancouver to
present tbe claims of the board on the
question of better freight rates lor
Kevelstoke; but the special committee
appointed to look into the matter had
done nothing, and he had no ollicial
report to work on. He would see Mr.
Bowles next. Monday or Tuesday when
he was down at the coast.
A. H. Allen suggested that they
might ask to be put on as favorable a
basis as Kelson in the matter of freight
rates, and Mr. Lawrence might dig up
some instances ol discrimination from
his own experience. He would
prohaly be going down to tbe coast
about that time, and would try tn
iicci inpauy Mr. Lawrence in his inter
view .vith the C.l'.ll. officials.
Th question ol a mineral exhibit at
Seattle was brought up by a letter
requei-'.ing the district to make an
cxtiibi it lhe intcr-stiite (air in Spokane this Kail.
11. Gordon said that lie was unable
to lind thut anything had been done
towards getting a special exhibit of
minerals tor the district at the Seattle
fair. The Dominion of Canada exhibit waB one of the finest there, but
Revelstuke was not represented in any
way. He had received a letter from
the commissioner asking if anything
was proposed to be done. The opportunity to advertise the district was a
good one. Tbe Dominion government
would pay tbe Ireignt to Seattle, and
the Provincial government would pay
tbe freight from surrounding districts
to Revelstoke. It would be a permanent exhibit that would afterwards be
taken to the Mines departmeit at
Ottawa. It was an offer from the
Dominion government they would
never get again aud they should take
advantage of it. Just now tlie prospects for mining iu the district were
brighter than they had been for a
long time and they should not, even
at this late date, neglect this opportunity to advertise their resuurces.
Willi the views expressed by Mr.
Gordon the board heartily concurred,
and it was decided tu ask the press tu
uige property owners in the district ti
bring in hand samples without delay
and leave them at the courthouse, so
that the exhibit might be shipped by
about the 21stof the pies- nt mouth in
a little later.
Mr. Lawrence reported that thi
special committee on fruit exhibit at
the Calgary lair had taken up tin
nm' ter with tbe Council, but the time
was tuo Bhort and they were unable to
get it together. Besides it would not
have been of mucb service from a
commercial standpoint as be under
stood tbat practically all, the local
strawberries would bo needed in town
this year.
The subject of the establish men I 0
a local land registry ollice was brought
up by A. B, McCleneghan. " It seems
to me," he remarked, "tbat we are
hardly going about in the right way.
We ought to have a land registry
ollice, and wc might easily expect Irom
the Provlnolal government a new
court hnuse, but I don't think we can
get one without the other. Wo should
offer a suggestion to thu government
Unit tbey might build a new courthouse and include a land registry ollice
in it."
Mr, Gordon agreed tbat they would
hardly be likely to put in a land registry ollice without anolher courthouse
Some time ago he bad asked the public works engineer for money to paint
and repair the present courthouse, and
be had advised him to spend no more
money on it. It was certainly inu
dilapidated condition     It bad suttlcd
su that the tower was out ol plumb
and sume of the doors had sagged. A
new courthouse would certainly be
needed soon, and if tbey could get u
laud registry otlice with it so mucb
the better.
It wiih pointed out that the govern
ment was building new courthouses in
other parts ol the province, and it was
something that should certainly he
done here. Finally it was decided tn
ask the press to keep the matter befure the public, snd it will he dealt
with hy the Hoard at a special meeting
to bu held later.
The secretary, II. Cunningham
Morris, was instructed to renew the
free write-up for the town In "Oppor
tuiiities ol Canada," a bouklet published by the Heaton Advertising
Agoncy of Toronto.
A letter was received Irom F. 0.

Almost exactly thirty days huve
passed since the ratepayers ol Revelstoke voted down the by-law to
riiiM. t,0,00J ior school purposes.
In that by-law the question of securing a site for another school,
and buying out alien rights in the
present school site was confused
with other issues, Buch as the
expense of building a new school,
and the problem oi location, and
this no doubt largely accounted for
its defeat. Subsequently the school
trustees secured from Mr. Sproat
■ui extension till August ::i of their
option to purchase Block 52 in
front nf the present.school, to acquire his rights in the closed -treet
and lane running through the
present school Bites, ami to purchase Block 58 the triangular piece
of laud adjoining the High Bchool,

purchased lor use, either as a
future -i liool site nr i- ii present
reoreation ground. Al present
High school pupil- during recess
must either piny mi the Street or
sit -iii the sidewalk, an intolerable
condition in any progressive town.
All that i- asked for the purchase
o/ this whole block and Judge
Bproat'i right- in the High school
sue and the lane running through
the Public school site is 16,500, oi
which il 000 il for the purchase of
Block os and rights in the   present
si tee, and f 5,600 for lilocks'-i. the
only block unbuilt on and intact
in the centre ol the   townsite   and
should the piesenl option be allowed to lapse there is nothing lo
prevent the owner from subdividing
and selling it in lots, and the city's
opportunity will he gone forever.
t Mice the land is built upon, the
difficulty of acquiring it is increased
ten-fold, and even if it still remained unbuilt upon, its value is
sun- to advance. In Vancouver
during the past year blocks for
school purposes have been purchased at prices ranging from
$20,000 to $ 10,000 which five years
befure could have been purchased
for n tenth of that amouut. While
Hevelstoke may not increase as
fust as the terminal city it is hound
to continue to grow with the development of the province, and its
land values will advance proportionately.
Apart from thu question of the
purchase of Block 52, that of acquiring Judge Sproat's rights in Block
53 is a most pressing one. If he
secures an injunct;on compelling
the city to remove the High school
from his land, in what position
will the city be ? lt is true that it
may resort to expropriation, but
that will prove an annoying and
expensive process. Our advice is
buy now while the present chance
Before a by-law can be submitted
it is necessary that a petition
should be circulated and the. signatures of fifteen per cent, of the
ratepayers secured who will be
willing to act as bondsmen for the
expense of submitting the by-laws
if tbey fail to pass. Wc believe
that there are enough public
spirited citizens in Revelstoke to do
this if properly approached, nor do
we think that if tho matter were
presented to the ratepayers free
from all oilier entanglements, that
there is the least danger that they
wuuld fail to endorse it. That the
position may be perfectly clear, so
that there can be no confusion or
misapprehension, it would be
necessary to submit two by-laws,
one for the purchase oi Judge
Sproal's rights in the present i-chool
,-itcs. and the other for the purchase of liluck 12.
Action in this matter Bhould be
taken without delay. We would
suggest as an initial step tbat the
Council appoint a man to visit
personally the ratepayer- with a
petition for the submission oi
the by-lawB and that be Becure as
many signatares as possible. Then
the by-laws could be prepared and
submitted in the brieiest poi
form. The sum to be voted on
would not be large, but the -
quences oi that vote would be
fraught with tremendous significance for the future of tl ■

''France Bent many knaves, fools
and adventurers to Canada. In
Champlain she sent one of her few
men." Thus tersely docs a recent
historian sum up the charucecr of
the man, the tercentenary of whose
life lias been celebrated during the
past week on the shores of the lake
that bears his name. It was certainly litting tbat prominent representatives of Great Britain, the
I'niled States, Canada and France
should take part in tlie commemoration, for in territory owned by
each of these nations today, he
played an heroic part, In reality
the greatest honor was done Cham-
plain in tlio tercentenary celebration of the founding of the city of
Quebec a year ago, for it was on
duly o, KiO.s, that Champlain cast
anchor by the rock on the St.
Lawrence and laid the foundations
of the city that he called Quebec,
and Quebec was the root from
which early Canada Bprang.
The story of Champlain's life
reads like a romance. Brave,
chivalrous, yet entirely rational, be
became early possessed of the
wanderlust, nor could all the temptations of the luxurious court of
France ever detain him long from
tbe wonderful new world whose
mysteries he loved to explore.
Many of his adventures, it is true,
proved disastrous, such as the attempt to settle the island of St.
Croix, where half his small force
perished from scurvy within a year,
hie first winter at Quebec, where
two-thirds were stricken down, and
hir alliance with the Algonquin
Indians against the Iroquois so
fraught with coming trouble. But
whether fighting the Indians, exploring new territory, or laying
the foundation oi future cities, this
purpose burned within him like an
unquencionable dame—to spread
civilization in the wilds and to
Christianize the people already
there. At heart Champlain was a
deeply religious man. One of the
most beautiful incidents of his life,
w i- bis devotion to the wife he had
married as a young girl, and wno
afterwards came out lo .-hare with
him the carer and hardships of bis
life the    west       Her   beauty

said that even the rough Hiildiersin
that period became careful and
precise in their devotion to the
church. In this calm and "peace
the truly religious nature of Chum-
bcrlin must have drunk of on
deepest happiness; and when, its
Christmas Day, 1635, the bell from
the tower of the Jesuit Mission
told to the little settlement on the

We are glad to see that steps
have been taken towards holding a
Fall Fnir. Tbis will be at least
one day in the year when Revelstoke district, will be able to show
what it oan produce, and by iut-.it
ing competition all exhibitors will
be encouraged to excel, ll is to be
hoped that the exhibits will include
n good mineral display, so that the
wealth bidden in the earth can be
seen in conjunction with that grown
above it. All citizens should show
their interest in their own locality
by helping the fair along in every
possible way.
The Board of Trade requests that
hand samples of ore from claims in
Kevelstoke and surrounding districts be left at the Court House to
make up a special exhibit for the
Seattle Fair. This is a request
th.it it is in the interests of all
claim holders tocomply with, since
it will give them the best possible
advertisement for their properties
without costing them a cent. They
should, therefore, bring in tlieir
samples without delay, so that as
much of the remaining time of the
fair may be utilized as possible.
Those best informed believe the
district is on the dawn of a brighter
day for its mining industries, and
no opportunity should be lost to
make its possibilities known.

Civic Affairs
Editor Mm. IIkk ii.u
Slit,—Please allow me apace through
the columns of your valuable paper
for a little comment and question on
matters pertaining to the welfare ol
our cili/.ons. Aa we Canadians enjoy
the freedom ol speech iu public and
the press, I, aa one of the pioneer.-.
here, with some experience in the
work have watched with keen Interest
the way the buaincas of thia city has
been transacted. Now as a ratepayer
1 deem it, iny duty to mention jiiBt a
few items ol importance. Kirst, why
were tenders not called lor to supply
those ornamental treea for the city?
Why were those overgrown birches
planted in the (rust anil snow, dead
trees, the people's money wasted by
had management? The remedy is to
plant trees of the right aim- in proper
season. Again, why did the Mayor
not see to it t1 at the city bad pro-
cuicd the water rights belore having
those large ewslly ditches dug lor the
box drains, and not blunder intu public worka fooliahly wasting our taxes,
affecting the sewer work, and ciiuaing
trouble? Again, why did other lumbermen ol the diatrict not supply lumber for these box drains, and why ia
there no inapector tu cull what ia not
sound? How waa the bargain made,
who looka after the city's interest?
Considerable rotten timber ia being
used in the box drains, and several
people have noticed the eanie. Why
were those street crossings that were
only put in laat year, lately broken?
They were cedar when they cuuld and
should have been Iir. Why should a man
supplying this city material aa a
shareholder in the same be allowed a
aeat in the city council, only to break
tiie Municipal Act ol this province'
That act should be enforced or repeal
ed. Now, last but net least, comes
the eewer pipe Ior works ol no small
importance costing about $100,000,
and the ratepayers may sweat a long
time to pay it? Do they not expect
good strong pipe, that will clean and
laat to be laid in, and not material
that will criiinbie liko Johnny cake?
Is there no binding contract made?
The writer ia not an expert on pipe
and invitos anyone interested to seethe tiimplea he has and notice the
contrast. Where ia the Mayor and
the Ch irman of tlie Public Worka
Committee? Do they not reiliBe the
responsibility involved in the offices
they hold? The question is how long
will the borrowing powers of the city
last with an administration, like some
ol the timber in the drain, rotten to
the core. Ia it any wonder tlie citizens voted down all money bylawB on
June 11? They have been bit and are
getting wise and would be likely to
turn down any money bylaws placed
before them by the powers that be. It
was considered a non-confidence vote.
Now, Mr. Editor, should anyone
reply iu a newspaper let them have
the manhood to sign their proper
names. Revelatoke needs more Daniels and lesB Ananiases. The writer
of these lew, iitraight, plain pointers,
hus the courage of hia conviotiona to
sign bis proper name.

Weatherhead, who waa lelt in charge,
put in a strenuous time ; clad in the
garb of the noble red man (a Hudson

horses and headed for Michel for
more supplies. A Free I'rcss representative, who met hnu on the trail,
promptly took to the aide lulls, but, on
the sign of peace bein - given, was per
auaded to visit the scene of the conflagration, and reports a total loaa of

ranch and Okanagan and Lung Lakes.
The return fare from Revelstoke will

The Buffalo were lirst gathered iuto
a large corral, and from thia were
driven by the Indiana and cuwboya
employed into loading chutes that led
into waggons provided with cages to
bold them. From these cages they
were afterwards loaded into the r.iil-
way oars. Once or iwice portions of
lie herd rather than he driven into
the loading chutes rushed blindly into
tbe Fend o'Reille river and swam two
miles down to escape (ruin the corral.
At other times they rushed madly
against the fences, the result beii.g
death l'or -ome and escape lur others.
One of the must thrilling experiences In oonneotlon with the wurk was
that ul .Johnnie Decker, an expert
luiind up rider, whose horse was impaled on the horns ol a buffalo and
gored to death under him. Tbe story
ie tuld thus by the Daily Missoulian:
"Decker'e thrilling ride tu what
seemed certain death occurred at Ro-
nan, where the famous l'ablo herd of
liuli'alo ia being rounded up fur trana-
portatiiin to Ravalli and shipment to
tbe Hand national park in Canada.
Decker and his brother, who were cm-
ployed as expert riders to corral the
bison and aid in leadiug them into
the cagea, in which they are being
hauled from lloiiau to the railroad
care at Ravalli, were endeavoring to
drive the unruly bieou from the corral
at Kniian int., the waiting cages when
the herd, goaded to madness by the
e orts ol the drivers to force them into
the wagons rebelled and stampeded.
Oue shaggy monarch of the herd,
which Decker bad been trying to
force through the loading chute,
wheeled suddenly, lowered bis mttBaive
head and, ir, blind fuiy charged toward
the rider. Travelling with the speed
ol tbe wind, almost, the beaat bore
down on Decker'b horse. The rider
waa unable to swing hia steed clear ol
ibe beast's path und in an instant the
horse wae impaled un the buffalo's
horns. With an exhibition ol strength
almost beyond belief the buffalo raised
horse and rider fiom the ground aud
halt carrying, half pushing them, bore
them acrose the corral for a distance
of 300 yards or more.
"With almost certain death etariug
Iii in in the face, Decker attempted to
draw his revolvei from the bolster and
kill the beaet. Hut the weapon caught
aud his efforts tu release it were futile.
While tbe five other riders, unable to
lend their comrade any assistance,
walched to see him go beneath the
hoofa of the buffalo, Decker clung
firmly to bis saddle aod struggled
with hia revolver. Ju«t tben the
buffalo stumbled and tbe gored horse
and his rider were hurled from the
horoa of tbe beaat into the dust. The
horse never moved from where he fell
but Decker, fortunately was thrown
beyond tlie animal, aod aeide from a
few bruises and a severe shaking up,
escaped unhurt, t'ndaunted by hia
narrow esoape, Decker mounted another horse and assisted bis brother
uud the other drivers to force hie uu-
ruly beast into a wagon cage in which
he was safely transported from Kutian
to the cars at Revalli."
Another "Sunshine" Feature
This is an entirely new idea, and will especially Interest people who reside in natural
gas distiit ts. The gas ring takes the place
of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus malting
it possible tO hum gas in your furnace without
Inconvenience. Such is not possible in a
furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;
for, should Ihe gas give out, a coal or wood
fire could not he started until the gal pipes
were disconnected.
To provide against sweating in the summer
time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped with a
nlckeUed steel radiator and dome. All
bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods
copper-plated. This .special treatment, besides meaning quicker and greater radiation
from the radiator and dome than cold chill
iron could possibly give, arts as protection
for the bolts, rivets and rods from inroads of
gas. When cast iron comes in contact with
our nickelled steel it is Coated with our special
Anti-Kust treatmentj which prevents the
»ll gilt est possibility of rust commencing
anywhere in Sunshine .Furnace.

The hospitality of Vernon ia proverbial, and as expressed by ite Cricket

but are showing lor gn average crop,
except in British Columbia where the
crop will be light.

medium, "Curl leaf" ia very prevalent, all'ecting Elbertas particularly.

oro|.J white and red grapes medium to
lull crop.

Ontario are a very large crop.

there were fewer business failures iu
British Columbia for the first half ol
the year 1900 than in any other province in Canada. The number given
fnr British Columbia is only Vi as
against 1)01 in Quebec, 270 in Ontario,
3S in Manitoba, 82 in Alberta, whiln
Bven Prince Edward Island had 17.
Tbe assets in the case ol the British
Columbia failures were placed at $25,-
403, as against liabilities of if2(!,l.'ill, so
tbat the difference between assets and
liabilities in all the failures lor a half
a yoar amounted to only a little over u
thousand dollars all told,
