ATTACK
ON BANKS
DISPROVED
During the past fow weeks, a campaign of calumny hus been carried on
in certain prairie papers, for obvious
political purposes, tho object beiug to
cast discredit upon the present Llord-
eu Government and the Hank Act oi
last session, by endeavoring to prove
that the Daubs have tlu'in.elves assist
wl for purposes of profit, in bringing
about thc cxistiug financial stringency
As showing Imw this1 campaign is
viewed by responsible businessmen ou
the prairie the following denials from
the Oity Couneil of Moosejaw, will be
mad with  interest.
"M..OS' Jaw. Sask., July 29—The
Oity Council ha;, passed a resolution
unanimously condemning B local paper
The Evening Times, for its (rout |iage
editorial on the financial conditions ot
the eity.
"In part, the resolution reads as
follows: "lhat this Council desires to
place on I'-i ord its >trong disapproval
t.n the article published recently, owing t'j its gross misstatements of local
condition-, wherein th - credit of tha
city and us businessmen is impugned,
und that a copy ol this icsolution ba
forwarded to the Board o; Trade with
the. request that Bupport be given this
motion with a view to restoring i'"iui-
deuv in tbe city which has beeu seriously impaired by the publication
aforesaid.."

that the' city's bankers have refused to

Shortly after the blaze hud started
to shoot up the building on the west

and  at once turned in  tho  firo  alarm.
A noticeable feature about the work
of tbo brigade at this big fire, was lhe
total a'isence oi conflicting orders ap-
g parently the orders ot the Chef werj
g acted on promptly. Very often, with
g volunteer tire depaitnicnts it is dillicult to see who is the chief, but not so
with the local brigade. The boys did
good work and to their eflorts to no
small extent is due the fact that many
houses in close proximity lo the fire
are today standing. Added to this the
fact that there was s.nrcely any wind
ivas responsible for the fire not spreading.

carried on in favor of appointing a
Minister ot Mines, an agitation which
in addition to being bucked by the
producers and operators engaged in
Canada's second greatest industry,
possesses the added attribute of being
supported .by both Eastern and West-
em branches of  that industry.
ln particular, the cry of the Boundary Country, Kootenay, and the vast
coal, precious and base metal inter -
ests of British Columbia, has been vig
orously sounded, but our appeals so
far appear to have failed to reach the
ears oi Political Ottawa.
Recently endeavors to secure such a
portfolio have b;'en redoubled, boards
o- uad'.', mining organizations, miners and pi o-pectins, all those vast
number of people engaged in the gigantic mineral industry, have united to
1 re ss this vital matter upon the Premier. We cannot believe that all this
work has heen accomplished merely to
be ignored.
The ramifications of the Mining husi-
I truss hav*t become so vast that their
management can no longer be- treated
j at Ottawa as a mere matter for un-
derstrappers or the spare moments of
an already overworked minister of another department.
'lh    mining  interests of British Columbia ami tbe West, join     with those
l of East.Tn Canada, in continuing their
de'inan I  for consideration.
If any difficulty except mere indifler-
in-eto  the  subject is delaying the ad-
vane vment   of   thii  important   reform,
] we want   to   know what  that   difficulty
eon-isi- of.    The  niin.n.'  industrj      is
entitle!  lo  n   ereater consideration in
i     .

• -hown by the government.

of three persons in the house on the
fatal evening, and may eventually bo
found. to involve the loss ol even
iron' than that number of human lives
constitutes one of the worst tragedies
ever Unown in the history of Revelstoke.
The fact that the hotel is mainly
lesorted to by workingmen, or the
humble rank of the victims, should not
be allowed to interfere for a moment
with the most complete and searching
investigation into the cause*) of the
calamity.
Even if the death roll proves smaller than the figures mentioned, this
should not be allowed to interfere in
: nyway with the zeal of Oity and Pro
Vlneial Police departments.
it is clear, that the life of every person in the house was jeopardised, by a
fire of mysterious origin, which appeared to break out in three places at
on e within the 'doomed building very
shortly after several reputable witnes.
s. s homewards bound, had passed tho
site and seen nothing- out of the way
nor observed any traces of the bla/.e,
which a few minutes later swept tho
Kg, frame shell from roof to base -
ment.
From whatever cause arising, any
person- who carelessly or otherwise
start.-d the fire have an awful responsibility ot guilt  upon  their souls.
The matter of whether this building
and other buildings in Revels'toke,
where 1 argot numbers of workingmen
are housed nightly, was or are properly provided with fire escapes, might
also be Included within the scope of
a competent investigation.
There are a certain class of hotels
right in Revelstoke, at. which for lack
of other accommodations, working-
men are compelled to room and board
'lhe hotel business*is a\ monopoly,
granted by the Municipality in the
form of licences to certain favored individuals. If ths Municipality
thus themselves prevent that degree of
competition in the hotel business,
which is the only safeguard the public
usually possess that they will be decently housed nnd ta'trn rare o?, it
BBems reasonable to suppose that such
mun-'cipality must b stir themselves
to protect the transient roomer and
hotel guest, seeing ihat they compel
bim to stay in a selection of a few
domiciles which only ar.' licensed for
the  accommoda ion  of  travellers.
The editor of this paper, really does
not think the question of who, or how
many men died in the Cdty hotel fire,
is of so much cons*-jll ni-e, as the
placing the responsibility for the fire
itself, and the condition of the build-
in-;, on the .shoulders where it belongs
Bnd lhi' taking of every safeguard lo
Lrevent  a similar hol&oust in future.
It is up to our civpe police authorities, magistrate and city council, to
>ee ihat these matters are probed to
the bottom; if they falter in the necessary process of investigation, they
deserve and will receive the contempt
of  every   respectable   citizen.

Go where you will, you will find no
better located point for the site of a
Oity than Revelstoke, It is as nearly
as possible in the centre of that great
section of British Columbia extending
for a length of 350 miles between the
Crow's Nest and B.C. Southern rail -
way systems to the south and the
routes of the Grand Trunk Pacific
and Canadian Northern railways to
the north.
Prettily situated on the Columbia
River where it is crossed by the main
line of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
it is also the junction with thu main
line of the Arrowhead and KooUnay
Railway, which connects with the palatial steamers of the C.P.R. on the
Arrow Lakes, and with tho B.C. Southern, Columbia and Western, Crow's
Nest Pass and Great Northern Railway systems to tho south.
As the construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern
railways to the north proceeds, and
these systems become extended iuto
the Canoe River valley and the terri- .
tory tributary to the Big Bend of the
Columbia, they mtiBt seek connections
with the south, and Revelsloke will be
the poiut of junction of the railway
systems of the future with those ot
today as they traverse tbe great valleys which radiate east and west,
north and soutb from this city as
their common centre.
While Revelstoko thus occupies an
exceptionally strong position as a
traffic emporium, its outlook Is still
brighter from an industrial and manufacturing point of view. There are
1,000 miles of timber on tho Columbia
River and its tributaries north of the
city. The expenditure involved in the
conversion ol this timber into a marketable product will not fall far short
of $275,000,000.
Water power is plentiful in the viciu
ity, tbe city having harnessed one-
stream to a capacity of 1,800 horse
power, which is ollered for industrial
purposes at low rates.
In tho valleys tributary to Revelstoke are about a quarter of a million
acres of land of good quality, and
which, when cleared of timber and
cultivated, is well adapted for fruitgrowing, poultry farming, dairying
stock raising, and general agriculture.
This land is capable of supporting a
rural population of 30,000 people.
Extensive and varied mineral de -
posits are known to exist in the neigh
borhood, and await development.
Cradled and beautiful scenes ol
mountain and glacier, forest-clad hill
and vale, river stn am and lake; favored with an qnable climate. Revelstoke is one of the most picturesquely located of Canadian cities and an
ideal town in whieh to make a home.
It is well lighted, ha- a high pressure supply of pur,, water which cau
he extended to meet any futuro requirements, good drainage and sewerage, high-e-lasM educational institu -
tions in the way of public and high
s-hools, a Y.M.C.A. with a well-
equipped gymnasium, two public parks
fair grounds, race track, magnificent
summer park on Mount Revelstoke
connected with tbe city by rail, nice
homes and gardens, and in fact aU
the modern onveniences that go to
make a town attractive from a residential point of view. (The great
trammer and tourist resorts of the
Rocky Mountains are within a few
hours reach, i Good fishing may be
had in many of the udjacnt streams
anel lakes. Hunters will lind here resorts of big -fame with reliable guides
at call.

 "     COMMISSARY,  BUJIMNG
A citizen of t**e wor'.d wishing to spend a holiday at
Banff, in the ! eart cf the Western Canadian Rockies or to
make a lu ••ks journey .-.Ions the lines of the Canadian
Pacilic Railway rents his sleeping car berth, boards the train,
lives and eats .n insurious surroundings while being whirled
across the continent and has little idea of the vastness of the
enterprise i:pin which he bestows his patronage nor of the
tremendous system wh:--h must be maintained in order that
he and others, likewise-minded, may travel in such safety,
comfort and luxury.
For Instance le goes to bed and does not know that an
army cf iren four thousand strong is employed by that
Dining and Sleep.ng Car Department. He is not aware that
the sam. romps y could, within fiv? d".ys, transport an army
of thirty tbousand pei pie from Vancouver to Halifax, giving
each a sle?p*.ni", berth and supplying ninety thousand meals
a day, or practically half a million on the five day journey
across thc continent. Again, he Joes not realize that, if the
dining and sleeping cars of the Canad'an Pacific Railway
were made up into a single train with a locomctive stationed
at intervals ten coaches apart, that that train would be
fourteen miles long. To man this city on wheels would
require an arn-y ef thr^e thousand dining and sleeping car
attendants with several hundred additional men at terminals
to handle supplies for them. This is exclusive of the thousand men who would be operating the train in the capaci'y
of biakerren, conductors, firemen and engineers, a total
aboard in all of 34,030 people.
TAKING CARS OF THE PUBLIC
It would take a great deal of space to tell how the
Canadian Pacific Railway takes care of that public which
patronizes its lines and how also it takes care of those
employees whose duty t is to minister to the comfort of that
public. Yet the C, P. R. has tr.ken many steps in that direction and it is safe to say that in a dozen particulars it
stands ahead of any road on the continent when it comes to
treating its dining and sleeping car employees humanely and
sanely. Tl ese men are as desirable a class of public servant
as can be founl in any privat house from the point of view
of efficiency, personal cleanliness and freedom from danger
of spreading disease. The company is as considerate of its
men as it is of the general public, and it is fully aware that
such a course is simple "good business."
Certainiy the most colossal task that presents itself
to the C. P. R. is that of provisioning its dining cars to
feed the hungry multitudes who cross their thresholds each
meal hour. It is estimated that in the summer season the
C. P. R. rcrves on an average twenty tl ousand meals a day
on its cars. For many years the company has beui grappling with the problem of supplying this enormous demand
in a way mat would insure to the general public absolutely
clean nnd perfectly wholesome meals and only now has the
company come to believe that it has the situation completely in hand.
Thc first problem that presented Hself was to have
secure a really assured and permanent source of supply. To
attain this and, incidentally, to show farmers in various dis-
ti.cts the possibilities cf their lands when scientifically
worked, demomtiatien farms were stattcd throughout the
Domini! n. There supply absolutely fresh provisions to the
chain of commissiary stcres stretching .cross the continent
and gi***o the Canadian Pacific Railway the assurance of a
permanent supply at ccst prices. In this an absolutely radical
departure was made in that the C. P. R. actually owns
and operates the farms which supply it with provisions.
The advantage of this is not fnr to seek. Fresh milk
nnd cream will soon be secured in whatever quantities are
desired. A sufficiently large number of poultry can be kept
to supply all requirements for table fowl and eggs. To insure freshness in the eggs used on dining cars the product is
gathered from tie nest (all eggs are non-fertile by the way)
stamped with the date, end then packed in cartons and
scaled for delivery to commissary stores. Milk and cream
are not handled in bulk. After being thoroughly pasteurized
the products are placed in scaled bottles and these are
opened in the prciencc of the passenger with the day and
date of milking right cn the bottle. Similar care is taken
to insure absolute cleanliness in all other demonstration
farm products. *
Fruits and vegetables form a larpc item on dining car
menu. The Canadian Pacific Railway imports these from all
parts' of the world and effers them on its tables before ihey
are available clscwheie and then, when the Canadian products arc ready thc prefeicnce is given thnn In fact the
company specializes in thc famous fruits and vegetables of
British Columbin and contracts for these products for thc
cntiro requirement!, especially apples nnd potatoes, for this
service foi all wcrtcin lines one year in advance. The qunlity
of these fruits, such ns apples, plums, cherries, piars, and
vegetables, such as celery and potatoen now stands highest
• a the continent.

INTERIOR    OF  Dining CAR
■ fJ
AN OBSTINATE Pi.OiiLjiM
One really obstinate problem has confronted the Canadian
Pacific and that has been the supplying of fresh bread and
pastry to its patrons—bread and pastry of such a quality
that the shield and beaver trademark would be its guarantee.
Many experiments have been tried but that degree of success desired by the company is only now being attained.
Final upon all plans comes the announcement on this year's
appropriation list to the effect that the company will install a chain of modern lakes! op.; at such term.nal points
between Halifax and Vancouver as would insure a complete
re-stocking of dining cars with fresh bread, cakes and pastry
every fifteen hours. Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Moose
Jaw, Calgary and Vancouver are to have such railroad bake-
shops as will several other points not yet definitely decided
upon.
The care of meats, milks, vegetables and perishable goods
for the twenty thousand people who must bo fed daily by
this one railway requires most elahi rate refrigerator plants.
All refrigeration is dene artificially and the scientifically
perfect degree of coldness is maintained to pie^ervc the goods
and so to maintain highest quality.
A MODERN SCIENCE
Modern medical science, both preventive and curative, hu
reduced itself to practically one only science—bacteriology—,
with the allied art of preventing disease bugs from finding
lodgment in any place that ccr.ies in contact with human
beings, more particularly to keep ;.;! human food free from
exposure to these germs.
Recognizing this the Canadian Pa :fie Railway has
worked out an elaborate system cf individual service, redno-
ing the handling of food to a minimum All bread, cakes,
pastry, pie, puddings, etc., are prepared in individual orders;
in fact this system .s extended to cover all possible service;
even ice cream, which is made under most sanitary condition, is prepared in individual rortions, each pouiou wrapped'
in special case to prevent handling.
ITS rir.^T CARE
One of the first cares cf the Canadian Pacific Railway
II to see that ell ite employees are phy ically healthy and
clean and to this end -t las been deemed expedient to establish a chain of fomes fer the dining aiv, -leaping car men
ever the entire ccntntnt. The C. P. R. is the ouly railroad
corporation today wbich provides this class of employees
A-ith free lodgment and led when away ire rn home. At all
;.;rfe terminals such as Toronto, Wirnir ng, Moose Jaw
Calgary and Vancouvor these d.nin? car . r.d sleeping car
employees are housed ly the company. In establishing thia
system tie management had cne main. Idea in view. It
would be able to give the general public tie assurance that
.very err.picyec lad a pl ysique fiae ficm disease, becausa
.11 arc. subjected to a periodic medical examination, and iti
would it elf tion be in a position to assume responsibility
ior tie cleanliness cf employees. Under the system that
•erevails  on  tie  C.  P.   R.   it   is  impossible   for a  dining  or
leeping car  employee  tu  go  out  on a  ran, as it is  called,
.. t. out   Bi t  laving  taken  a  bath  and  g.tten  his  clotheft
iwly cla ed a.d press.d, tree cf any cojt to the employe*.
Nor  is tie Canidiar. Pacific Railway  inspired by solely
a-s.nees motives in t!*,is woik.   The company is not a "souU

The Muni'ipal Court of Revision for
1913, Bat in the City Hall on Tuesday
evening;.
Some fifty-five appeals against tho
assessments had been liled, many of
which were disposed of.
Broadly speaking, the appeals ag -
cinst values of acreage both in the
limits, and throughout the school
[district, were conceoded, and considerable reductions made on the original
fgures.
AppeaN against property valuations
within the city limits were considered,
and where the values of real estate
were involved the appeals were laid
over until a percentage reduction of
thc whole to preserve equality, has
been made.
The ap|ieals against assessments of
building's' were j-enerally allowed, al -
though in several '-a-*es notably that
of Mr. H. Manning, and one or two
other business blocks, the assessment
was upheld.

The South Vancouver High school,
were given prominent headlines in the
promotion report which appeared in
Friday's coast papers. This' sehool U
credited wiih ibeliest showing made
in the province, passing 31 out of 34
pupils. Miss M.Kenzie, formerly high
j school principal here has lieen assistant principal in South Vancouver
I igh achool for the past year. II will
be noticed that she is maintaining if
not surpassing the high record -he established in Revolstoke.
Among the visitors to St. Leon, returning to the city on Sunday after -
noon were Mrs. Purvis and children,
Mrs. Kincaid and two, boys, and Mrs.
Murray Hume and children. They all
inite iu giving that summer resort a
good first-class recommend. All tho
requisites for a summer vacation are
to be found thero, hot and cold bathing, cool shade or hot sand, Snc fishing, lovely scenery with long walks or
easy climbs, and last'but not-least, the
very best of meals three times a day.
"Wecan live without poetry, music or
books, but civilized man cannot live
without cooks."
It has given everyone quite a surprise to learn that Inspectors' Miller
and Denton are exchanging places that
ls Mr. Denton goi'S to Vancouver and.
Mr. Miller returns to Revelstoke. This
arrangement is mutually very satisfactory, we understand. Mr. Denton, although only one year in this ins|>ector-
ate, haa left the impress of a strong
personality in educational methods ln.
Ids district and his term of office has
been progressive. Mr. and Mrs. Miller
will, however, bo welcomed back by a
lost of friends. They are expected to
arrive next week and resume posses -
sion of their former house which thej
have  repurchased  from Mr.   Denton.
