Revelstoke Pioneer Meets With
Hard Treatment
The Spokane Spokesman- Review of
Monday tells a story of the brutal
treatment received by J. Montgomery,
one of tbe pioueers of the city. Mr.
Montgomery was one of the first men
to set foot in the territory now known
ss RevelBtoke and is well known as a
mining promoter and successful in
such ventures all through the province.
The story told by the Spukane paper
is as follows:
"Knocked down at the do r ol the
Sacred Heart hospital, where he has
been confined since March by an operation, J. C. Montgomery, aged about 50
years, was subjected to brutal treatment and robbed of all his money and
a watch a little alter 8 o'clock last
night. M ntgomery, though very
weak from bis confinement, was nearly
well. He had been out tor a walk and
intended to start lor bis home in
Revelstoke, B.C. to-day.
Two men leaped upon him and
felled him with a terrific blow in the
lace as he wsb about to mount the
steps leading to the main entrance of
tbe hospital. One stood with bis lieele
on the feeble victim's chest, preventing him Irom making an outcry, while
the other searched his pockets, taking
between $00 aud |70 and a gold watch
be had carried many years. It was
with difficulty that Montgomery regained sufficient strength to rise to'
bis leet aud get back into the hospital |
to tell of the outrage. The robbers
escaped. Tbe old man's face is badly
bruised where he was struck Hie first
blow and it was feared last night that
because of bis weak condition his experience would have had a bad effect
on bin nervoiiB system, but his general
condition seems little worse to-day.
Detectives Miles and Dial investigated
the case and believe Montgomery was
robbed by someone who had known
him in the hospital."
Local  Sports Will Hold High
While the memory of Queen Victoria will never be loat and that name
will go down in the pages of history to
tbe honor ol "England's greatest
Queen," the method ol comemorating
it will be a matter to be settled by
individual communities. In Revelstoke Monday is to be a big day as far
as it d possible to make it such by tbe
managers ot tbe Y.M.C.A. The pro
gram of sports outlined and to be
carried out is a full one and will be

The juuior race lists, which are fast

Tbe order oi events for the day and
for the principal incidents is as follows:
10:30 a.m.—Baseball game.
1:30 p.m.—Athletic programme will
4:15.—Lacrosse game.
Owing to the [act that tbe Y.M.C A.
grounds, opposite the Y.M.C.A. building are not fenced, those who enjoy
tbe position ot spectators of tbe sports
will be allowed the privilege of contributing to the fuuds ol the association by the good old fashioned
method of giving a collection. Nothing more appropriate could terminate
the proceedings after such an incident
than a children's candy scramble
which is included in the program and
the management assures the people
that there are plenty ol candies for all.
Council Takes no Action on the
School Bylaw Loan Question
At a special meeting ol the city
council held last nigbt tbe question of
the submission ol a bylaw to raise
$10,000 for school purposes was again
laid on the table, It is understood
tbat the delay in passing the necessary
resolutions to put the matter before
the ratepayers is uot ou account ol
any objection to the bylaw by any
member of the council but because of
a hitch iu the negotiations for the
proposed purchase ol Block Lli. It
appears that, since the otter of the
owner ol the property to Bell at the
assessed valuation ol the lot a change
ol mind has been experienced and a
higher price is now asked. The demand for such a rise in values may
determine the trustees not to buy the
desirable property in .puntion and tie
laying over ol the bylaw took place

Lord Roberts Warns British
Parliament on Army Question-Frankness Advised As
to True Conditions.
Excoriation of the politicians of
Greiit Britain who bave regarded the
British Army sb a party puppet, aud
denunciation of the people ior apathy
towards the Nation's defence, falling
from the lips of Lord Roberts iu debate before tbe House of Lords, is the
subject which ia causing amazed and
indignant diecuasiou in Army circles
aud public prints throughout Groat
"Our Army is a sham. We have no
Army," exclaimed the Field-Marshal,
com 11 mu ting upon the Duke ut Bed-
turd's motion for an injury into the
condition of the Reserve.
"1 know perfectly well that the
leaders in both Houses of Parliament
are anxious about the future, but they
do not tell the country we have neither an army to send abroad nor to
defend ihe country at borne. While
we are sitting here taking it easy and
emu fort al,le the danger ia comiug
nearer aud nearer to us daily, and
unless you cease telling the people
they are living in safety, aud get aii
army lit to deal with au enemy, we
shall one day come to such utter grief
that you will bitterly repent your inaction.
lt is a perfect marvel to mc bow
anybody can see what ia going ou
round ub in Europe, and be content
with the condition of our Army. Xo
cuuntry in the world would attempt to
defend itseli with the paucity of mon
and with the untrained men wo have
got. You will never have a real army
nntil you have taken the nation into
ycur confidence and told them their
danger. You may think you are Bate,
but you are not. Be frank and tell
tbe nation wbat iB before them. They
will respond."
Railways Race for Rival Lines
to Yellowhead Pass
Final location surveys along the
west bank ol the North Thompson
river, 20 miles above Kamloops, are
being made by the Canadian Northern
railway, according to Mayor J T
Robinson, of Kamloops, who was in
Vancouver this week. Tbia railway
haa three parties in tbe field and is
pushing its work to the limit ol the
capacity ol its men iu order that il
may traverse the valley ahead ol tbe
forces of the Grand Trunk Pacific
which is working two survey pitrtiet-
on trial locations on the east bank ot
the river within sight of tlie Canadian
Northern men. Both parlies art
working tbe line headed tor tlie. Yel
low-head Pass, the Grand Trunk I'acilic
planning to strike its main line in tbe
vicinity of Fort George.
It is the aim ol the Canadian Northern to cover the ground lirst in order
tbat where the line comes to tight
places it may have the advantage ovei
the Qrand Trunk Pacilii uf getting iti-
looiilinn survey plans filled first, thus
securing choice of right-of-way.

that the statement is intended to
pay any compliment to Englishmen us such. We simply mean
that, in a democratic country like
Canada, there are no racial or class
distinctions. If an "Knglishman"
has a "job'' in this country—we
despise the bishop's English—it is
because he merits it, for no man
can lonn hold a position against
the keen competition on the agree-
sive American continent of today
unless he has, in his make-up some
of the material that is popularly
denominated sand.
While it seems almost sacrilege
to criticise anything that may be
said by the bishop of London we
are never-the-less inclined to go a
short distance from our way to
suggest that when he tells us that
the growth of the slum population
of Britain accounts lor the fact
that no Englishman need apply
he casts an unwarranted and unpardonable reflection on a large
number ol people who are occupying good positions in the colonies
today and who are proud of this
fact and that they are Englishmen.
In the closing sentence of the quotation from the reported address
we think there is a misprint. The
bishop might have said "royalty"
hut how the fact that an occasional
Englishman fails to get a "job" in
Canada is going to undermine
"loyalty" is slightly beyond the
grasp of one not English bom.
Tha whole trouble with the Englishman who is a disappointment
to himself and his employer in
Canada is the fact that he is unsophisticated. Iu this respect he
is no worse than anyone else but
he does this country harm. He
writes " 'ome" and tells his sweetheart a few things calculated to
raise visions of heroics in her eyes
and she, poor child, lets sacred
confidences of her lover get into
print. Apart from the fact that
the mis-lit Knglishman writes such
statements home and that his letters find their way into print and
that the bishop of London sees tit
to bear false witness against his
neighbor we do not think Canada
has even the slightest aversion to
It is dillicult to escape a feeling
of admiration for the people of
Winnipeg who intend to celebrate
the Selkirk centennial by the holding "f a World's Fair in tho big
anil growing city which now does
and always will boast itself the
Capital of the wide stretch of Canadian territory west of Lake Superior as far as Brandon.
Whether or not the particular
method of celebrating the centennial is well chosen ma\ be
questioned either from the point of
view ot iloing something to be
proud oi or lhat of advertising
Canada. It i- not like Winnipeg
to boast, bo the lirst count is  down

Tatlow, minister of finance, has pointed out tbe above facts in their relation
to the problem before the department
of agriculture.
"For the reasons alluded to," be
remarked, "it is to the central interior
and northern valleys tbat we must
look lor tbe establishment ol agricultural communities, aud the government, alive to the existing conditions,
ia making all possible speed in providing roads and trails in those districts
which are the most available for settlement. Avery few years ago these
districts were practically unknown
even by name to the bulk ol tbe people of the province, the greater portions were unexplored and tbe small
patches surveyed did not represent
one one-hundredth per ceut ol their
vast area.
Preliminary explorations were ordered about six or seven years ago,
and these were followed up by surveys
in the Bulkley, Nechaco, Kitsum-
kelum Bella Coola and other districts
which are being extended every summer, bo tbat in another year there will
be a belt ol surveyed farming lands
stretching Irom tbe Skeena river to
the Blackwater and traversed by a
wagon road. The work of aurveying
has been slow Irom the fact tbat the
Burveyors had to explore for and locate
suitable lands before proceeding to
subdivide them, and this in a country
broken by mountain ranges was a task
which required time and mucb arduous labor.
" ThiB year the government is Bending out twenty-one surveying parties,
the largest number ol any year In tbe
history of the provinoe, and a sum of
$280,000 has been appropriated tor thia
service, wbile $220,000 is provided for
roads and bridges.
" But," Captain Tatlow continued,
"wbile the departments of lands aud
public works are thus doing tbeir share
towaids throwing open tbe waste
places to settlement, the department
of agriculture ie also active in promoting the interests and encouraging the
e orts ol the farmers. Liberal aid is
being given to the agricultural associations for their annual exhibitions,
$25,000 being devoted to that object, —
$7,000 in aid of farmers' institutes;
$17,000 to fruit growers' associations,
the board of horticulture, orchard inspection, and BumB aggregating a total
of $70,400 towards the dairying, poultry, live stock and other agricultural
interests. Tbe farmers' institutes,
live stock and dairying associations
are being stimulated to intelligent
effort along modern lines by expert
officials of the department, whose work
is showing good results.
" The overllow from that great tidal
wave of settlement is finding its level
in the fertile valleys of British Columbia, and it is the cream which is
coming our way. Despite this handicap, tho progress of agriculture has
been, in many respects, remarkable.
Take as an instance tha dairying industry. In 1901 the total production
of twelve creameries waa 74,073 lba..
valued at $20,841, while laat year
twenty-two creameries produced 1,815,-
977 pounds ol butter, worth $570,367.
The incrcaao in fruit-growing haa been
still more gratifying. In 1901 the
province could only abow 7,430 acrea
planted in Iruit, and theao small
orchards were confined to a few districts, while to-d«y the Iruit growing
aroa extends from the Skeena river to
the Crow's Nest I'ass and the number
of acree of fruit is over oue hundred
thousand. This shows an increase in
the ono case ol 2,740 per cent, and
1,351 per cenl. iu the other in six
"lu grain growing, British Columbia
cannot hopo to compete with her
eastern neighbors until tbe great
wheat arciiH ol Cariboo and Cassiar,
estimated by Professor Macouu at ten
million acres, are brought under cultivation, but the quality ol the wheat
and other cereals produced in Bulkley
and Nechaco valleys givea assurance
that this province will at no distant
day be a competitor with 'Alberta red'
and 'Manitoba hard.'"
