forced them into the president's private ollice and held them there at the
point of a revolver. In the meantime
the other two robbers hud entered.
One stood at tbe door with a revolver
in his bund and the. other tilled two
sucks with the money in the cashier's
cage. Then the three men rushed
from the bank mingled with the
pedestrians. The robhers have not

1909 Will see Millions Spent
in the West.
W'inmi'ki., Deo 8— While the total
sum to be expended in tho west, in
1909 by the Canadian Pacific in iui
provomente, betterments and extent-
ions, will be less next year than it was
during the present yrar, it will etill
amount to many millions ol dollars
The total amount expended in ibis
way during the present year in the
west i- snid to have been about lorty
millions.
Offioisle "f the Canadian Pacific
railway in various parts of the west
are nuw engaged in the consideration
of the important undertakings which
will be assumed for tbe operations of
next year. A large amount of work
which has beeu under construction
during tho pint year will be completed
next summer, and new work will be
begun in nil nur western provinces.
None ul these will, however, equal in
importance sume ol the contracts
with which the company has been

CITY COUNCIL
Electrical   Heating   Rates are
Reduced
A special meeting of the city conn
eil was held last night with Mayor
Lindmark and Aid. Foote, Woodland,
Lefeaux and Stone present. The meeting was culled to reconsider and finally pass and 9ilnpt the two bylaws
number 1-2 and 123, repealing the
cement, sid v Iks and boulevard bylaws
and to tlisi  iss general business.
Bylaws 122 and 128, repealing liy -
laws 118 and 121), were reconsidered
and finally passed and sealed.
A communication from Supt. T.
Kilpatrick wus read complaining that
the prices charged by the city for electrical material supplied to the O.P.K.
shops during the month of September,
while the strike was under way were
excessive us compared with pricis and
iiu.tations at Winnipeg and Vancouver. City electrician North was present and explained tbat the material
supplied was the test and also that it
had been supplied the C.P.11. in small
quantities from time to time as they
required it and not in large amounts.
The prices charged the C.P.R. in this
particular instance were tlie same as
were charged to the oity householders.
The council agreed that since the account was a large one and that this
wae a special occasion where material
was supplied in such quantities, ttiat
a discount on thi whole amount could
be given and a resolution waa passed
that the C P.R. be offered 15 per cent
diecount for their September account
on the electrical material supplied,
provided that the account be settled
before the end of this mouth.
The question of heating rates was
discussed, and the advisability of reducing the sa.ie so as to encourage a
day load on the machiues. This was
decided upon and a resolution was
passed that the heating rate he reduced to three cents per k. w. hour.
The court of revision for local improvement by-laws in connection witli
the cement .si lewalka and boulevards
Was appointed, consisting ol the
Mayor, and Aids. Woodland, Sawyer,
Lefeaux and Foote, to hold its first
session ou Tuesday evening, Dec. 29th.
The Mayor stated that he bud sent
a telegram to tbe Canadian General
Klectric Co. insisting that the work of
installing the auxiliary gas producer
bo hurried to completion. The council lelt that the delay in the work waB
unnecessary and uncalled for.
A resolution was passed that the
8,UU0 gallon water tank constructed
by the Revelstoke Sawmill Oo. for the
producer plant at tbe power house be
purchased and that its efficiency be
guaranteed by the said company.
The meeting ihen terminated.
A SPLENDID MEETING
Ski and  Snow Shoe Club a
Success
A very well attended and enthusiastic meeting of the Ski and Snow Shoe
Club took place at the Cily Hull on
Tuesday evening. Although lhe council hud the hull engaged for a special
meeting, the Mayor kindly gave up
the room to the snow shoes. A num
ber ot new names were affiled tu the
list of members, nuw totalling 110, and
over half paid up membership fees.
A ter careful comparison of prices
submitted it was decided to place tbe
club's patronage with Mr. F. U. Wells,
who. for encouragement of the sport,
has quoted rates for skis and snow
shoes to club members at cost price
laid down, lie will order, as a starter,
18 pairs each of men's and women's
sboes, and also some half dozen skis,
and if members will kindly place their
orders with him at once they will run
110 risk of not having tbeir outfit in
time for the opening run, which will
occur, weather suitable, as soon after
New Year as possible.
All intending to join this popular
club are advised to place their name
and fee (ifl) with Mr. J. Guy Barber,
Secretary, or any member of tlie club,
and to put in their request to Mr.
Wells for the outfit, required,
It was also decided to try and work
out a toboggan slide, and a bee of "the
boys" to locate the same will take
pluce Saturday afternoon at 2 p. ni ,
starting from Mr. Long's brawery.
Me-s s. ILigar aud Bethune have
kindly offered to send for one toboggan
and the club will purchase auother,
provided a suitable slide can be
secured.
As it is not probable, without general request for the same, that a meeting of the club will take place till
after the holidays, it is again urgently
requested that all wisuiug 10 join
should pay their fee (.fl) aud send iu
I. quisitions to Mr. Wells for the outfit
may riquiro Couio in and help the
fun along and get ready to be in line
for the opening run to the club house.

A GOOD INVESTMENT
An advertising appropriation in
a reputable journal i? an investment and should be treated as
t-tich. Not a? an expense nor charity, nor vanity, but a sum of money
thai makes dividends. It should
lie as irrevocably fixed upon the
ledger at- =o much appropriated
upon which to do business as rent,
light, heat, power, and even more
so tbiin salaries. The pruning
should not be put into that appropriation as soon as times get slack
ami or.lers -low up, b t rather the
reverse. In this issue will he found
many well written and interesting
advertisements from our local merchant* who realize that to set before theil patrons, in black and
« bite their many goods and prices is
a great incentive to trade. A close
study uf attractive advertisements j
nt leii-ure. At home, will invariably
ea to big | irehasea and in almost
every case tlie Bale oi even a few
articles will pay for the entire cost
■A lhe whole spaa taken. Adver-I
Using ami publicity are akin tu
each other. If- a- sume say, advertisements do not pay it is be-
1 i .*••■ the advertiser does not sup-
ply the right copy, In almost
• •! ,a.e the newspaper man
knows how to set the ad in an m-
tractive manner hut he is not to
blame ii poor copy is furnished.
We are glad to see thai our mer-
ubaoti ure alivs to the values -\
■ ■.. i and   express a   sincere hope
ought to make the spasmodic, kindliness of Christmas one of the con-
slant forces ol our industrial world.
Equality and fraternity are born
not of charity but of justice. In-
-timl of commercializing Christmas
we ought to Christniasize commercialism, We do not pretend to be
prophets but w>i can all dare to
hope, that some day the strong
will not exploit the weak; that
some .day fraternity will he more
than a rhetorical flourish; that'
some day love will beget justice
rather than charity; and Christinas
is 'lie one day in the year that such
a venturesome hope seems more
than a will-o'-the-wisp.
BIG HILL REDUCTION
Work to be Completed by the
Summer of Next Year
Advices from Kield state that tht*
work un the big spiral tunnel which
the C.P.K. are constructing through
the Hig Hill at Cathedral Peak und
Wapta mountain ate proceeding very
satisfactorily and will be use eady in
the summer of 1909, according to reports (rom the contractors, Mucdon-
nell, Q/.owaki A Oo This tuunel will
avoid the steep grade up the Hig Mill
between Field and Hector at the Hutn-
nnt of the liockies, where frequently
four ur live heavy locomotives aro required to pilBll uud pull the train..
When tbe tunnels ure completed the
present mileage between the two
points will be increased Irom 4 to 8,
but the giade will be reduced by
exactly 100 per cent. There is one
tunnel on each side of the river, one
being 3,_,00 feet long und tbe other

Now tbat the winter's snow has
come to stop, the public are reminded thai to allow the snow to
accumulate in masses in front of
their store premises where cement
sidewalks are laid, will be to lay
up for themBelves considerable
trouble when they are compelled to
clear the walk. Formerly when
the old wooden sidewalks were
down and when ice would thicken
on the surface, thereby causing
pedestrians much danger in slip-

very freely. Now, this practice
will not be allowed this winter for
fear of chipping and otherwise
damaging the cement walk, consequently each merchant and husi-
B8S man who has premises on McKenzie Avenue and First Street,
should see to it that their respective sidewalks are kepi clean and

FIRE BRIGADE NO. 1
Interesting Address by Mayor
Lindmark
The regular meeting of Fire Brigade
No. 1 was held on Monday nigbt with
a good attendance. Mayor Lindmark
was present by invitation of tbe brigade. Chief Abrahamson briefly and
pointedly explained the feeling of tbe
brigade in regard to tbeir standing
with the upper end ot the town complaining that No. I had always been
secondary consideration when anything was being done lor the brigades
and tbat tbey invariably got second
band Irom No. 2 any improvements or
additions to tbeir fire hall. He cited
aa instances tbe set ol chairs supplied,
the lack of hydrants, electric lights on
tbe ball front and other things
Mayor Lindmark in reply stated
tbat he regretted very much that No.
1 brigade should harbor any ill feeling
and he lelt sure thst when lie explained these matters in tbeir true light
that there would be a better understanding all round. He pointed out
tbat tbe citizens of Hevelstoke should
bu proud of their firemen and referred
to the splendid service rendered by
No. lat the recent tire in the Cowan
Block, highly complimenting tbe brigade on their work. He pointed out
tbat he was most anxious to further
tbe interests of both brigades and
urged that unity between them exists.
He explained in a clear manner that
No. 1 did not get a scoudary consideration as far as tbs council was concerned and promised that the improvements and additions to equipment,
hydrants, etc., would be seen to at
once. Tbe mayor then stated that be
had done all he could during bia term
ol otlice to help out tbe brigade and
hoped tbat no further misunderstanding would occur.
A resolution was passed tbat No. 1
brigade, after hearing tbe remarks of
Mayor Lindmark, do tender bim a
hearty vote of thanks for his dealings
with the brigade during bia term of
otlice as mayor. Then followed the
nomination of officers for eleotion for
the ensuing year; general business was
transacted and tbe meeting adjourned.

REVELSTOKE Y. M. C. A.
Kamloops Will Follow on Lines
of Local Association.
Kamloops is considering the question ol organizing a Y, M.C.A. on
the lines of the Revelstoke institution.
We can vouch for the fundamental
principles on whioh our own Y. M. C.
A. ie based, and tho success that bas
attended tbe carrying out ol tbis magnificent scheme. If Kamloops is anxious to organize a Y. M. C. A. aod
wishes to take Kevelstoke as ao example, that community must remember that tbe success of our association
is due mainly to tbe grit and enthusiasm ot our townspeople and the untiring energy of those who carried the
thing through. Kevelstoke citizens
are proud ol their Y. M. C. A., and
rightly so, as they bave built it up
and now carry it on in a manner that
reflects credit nn the city, and which
creates the admiration ol all who visit
it. Moral and physical training and
development of tbe youth ol our city
are mainly due to the inlluences ol
the Y. M C. A., and in spite of those
j wbo, jealously or from a 'eiiae of nar-
I row-minded grudge, would knock its
woik, the average youth can bs made
as good a christian and sensible ol
home inlluences by attending theaeso
ciation's moral, mental and physical
training than by listening to many a
long-winded and ambiguous addreas
from a church pulpit. Kamloops
cannot go far wrong if she institutes a
Y. M. C. A. on the lines ol Kevelsto ke
A Curious Duel.
The lollowing quaint account ol a
duel is taken from an old paper, and
will probably be new to moat people:
A duel was lately (ought by Alexander Shott and John Nott. Nott
was Sliolt snd Shott was nott. In
this case it ia better to be Stunt than
Nott. There was a rumor that Nott
waa uot shot, and Hlmtt avows that he
shot Nott, which proves either that
the shot Shott shot at Nott waa not
shot, or that Nott waa ahot.
Not wi thstanding that circumstantial
evidence is not always good, it may he
made to appear on trial that the ahot
Shott shot shot Nott, or as accidents
with firearms are frequent, it may be
possible tbat the shot Shott ahot shot
Shott himself, when the whole affair
would resolve itaelf into its original
elements, and Hbott would be shot
and Nott would be uot. We think,
however, that the shot Shott shot shot
not Shott but Nott. Anyway it is
hard to tell who was shot.
