Aint It the Truth
An exobange says that there is so
iuuoh pleasure io running a newspaper that some editors are refusing
money as a reward for their services.
It takes wind to run a newspaper. It
takes a sclntilating asrobatic imagination and a half dosen white skirt*
and a railway pass to run a newspaper. But money—liesvens to Betsy
and six hands round, wbo ever needed
money to run a newspaper. Kind
words are tbe medium of exchange
that do the business for tbe editor,
kind words snd church social tloktts.
When you see an editor with money,
watch bim. He will be paying hills
and disgrsce tbe profession. Make
bim trade it ont. He lives to swap
Then when you die, after having
stood around and sneered at his .I ini
Crow paper, bs sure and have your
wife send in tor three rxtra papers
hy one of your children and wben she
reads the generous and touching
notice about you, forewarn ber not to
neglect to send 16 cents to the editor.
Tbe editor knows it and what he
wants is heartfelt tbanks. Then be

Explosion.
Winnipeg, Man., April 11.—While
the C. P. R. Pacific Express was pro-
oeeediog to tbis eity from Montreal at
midnight, a huge rook, loosened by the
thaw, fell on the locomotive bear Ken-
ors, derailing it with four coaches
witb immigrant's baggage. Engineer
Love, of Kenora, was pinned under tbe
cab, and scalded to death. No passengers were injured.
Nelson, April 11.—A lesder of the
Doukhobors who is here says he will
bring all the Doukhobors from Manitoba and tbe northwest to British
Columbia. Some will settle here and
some near Vancouver.
London, April 11'—The Times severely criticizes King Edward for his
absence from England as the time of
a political crisis.
Winnipeg, April 11— Seeding is in
full swing iu the northwest.
London, April 11.—Great Britain is

Bath, Eng., April, 11.—Ten miners

colliery in Somersetshire today, as tbe
result of an explosion of coal gas.
Winnipeg, Man., April 11.—Thomas
R. Flett, trainmaster at Moosejaw, has
been appointed district superintendent
of tbe Canadian Paoific railway at
Brandon. C. B. Mohsrg, the present
superintendent at Brandon, will- resume duties as superintendent of tbe
new district at Saskatoon.
PARALLEL LINE THROUGH B.C.
Rumors of C. P. R. Plans Said
to be Authentic.
Calqart, Alt., April 10—The "Al-
bertan" has received tbe following
despstob from private sources in Montreal, said to be authentic:
"The Canadian Pacific Railway is
unquestionably considering the building of a second line across the Province of British Columbia, with a terminus at Hardy Bay, near the northern end of Vancouver Island. A large
area of Hardy Bay has recently been
bonded by unknown parties, while in
addition, about $50,000 worth of water
lots have been placed under bond.
While no definite information hss
been given as to wbo is behind this
desl, the general idea is that the
Canadian Pacific is negotiating with
the ultimate idea of running another
line across the Province from Winnipeg via Saskatoon and Wetaskiwin «o
Hardy Bay. For some time tbe C.
P. B. line to Vancouver has been taxed to its utmost all tbe time to handle
tbe traffic, and it is understood that
the road bas been casting round for
another line. Hardy Bay is one of tbe
best harbors on the Canadian Paoific
Coast, with excellent accommodation
and a good country back of it, while
it is close to the great timber lands of
tbe north end of Vancouver Island.
A further advantage of euob a line
and termlnue would be that it would
afford a much better competition witb
the Grand Trunk Paoific, sinoe tbe
northern harbor would enjoy almost
equal facilities witb Prince Rupert,
so far as ocean navigation is concerned. When built, tbe line will
connect witb tbe main line of tbe
Canadian Pacific at Wetaskiwin."
More Than Sentiment
London, April 10,—Australia's apprehension in tbe matter of possible
aggression on tbe part of Japan was
voiced at tbe meeting held here this
afternoon by the Australasian Chamber of Commerce, by Hon. Thomas
Price, Premier of South Australia. Mr.
Price was emphasising the necessity
of Great Britain giving a more
tangible proof of ber interest in the
colonies. " You cannot keep a colony
by merely flying a flag over it, eve"
the Union Jack," he said. " Tbere
must be sympathy and understanding
behind tbe Hag. Witb tbe awakening
of the East, if you are going to retain
Australia, as a jewel of the Britii.h
Crown, some one bas got to stand up
and figbt to keep it."
Mr. Price expressed his approval in
strong terms of the proposal to raise
a numerous Federal citizen army in
Australia.

tbe city solicitor might be csrried out
and to accept the same on return.
A resolution was passed authorizing
the mayor and city clerk to enter into

power house were opened, there being
only three sent in. That of D. McCarthy for $2,292 was accepted. J. R.
Stewart bas been appointed inspector

American racing automobile arrived
here last night on tbe steamer Santa
Clara. It will run 20 miles through

A RETROSPECT
Footprints in  the   Sands  of
Time.
It looks strange to look back a few
years and imagine what the country
round the city was like then. Possibly
and very probably the denizens of the
forest were the lords of oreation and
big game held its sway over tbe land
and roamed the mountains and valleys, or a few Indians sent their camp
fires curling up from their tepees. In
the early days before advent of the
iron horse what was Revelstoke?
Nothing, or next to nothing. Perhap«
there was? one house and a barn to be
sure, and now we have a thriving go-
ahead city with all the evidences of
advanced civilization and good time .
Here we have a long distance telt-
phone, a magnificent rni'rnad service,
good stores, hotel",lumber mills,b'ai'ks,
prog essive business hi'iu*riil mid al

timber. Civilization bus stepped iu
and taken their place. What caused
this wonderful chtnge? Well, there
are many things which have directly

Railroad Notes.
Canada has the highest railway
mileage, measured against population,
and the lowest, measured against territory, of nearly all the countrier of the
world. Tbere are 22,452 miles of railroad io operation in the Dominion, an
increase of 1,099 milee over tbe previous year. ' Canada had one mile of
railway for every 269 inhabitants and
every 161 square miles of territory.
A passenger train on a branoh of
tbe Grand Trunk was released on
February 21, after being stuck in a
snow drift near Muskegon for four
days. A dozen passengers on Ibe
train lived on food foand in the bsg

tlie train's assistance, but they each in

The train wss finally shovelled out.

THE QUALITY OF GREATNESS
It has been frequently said thnt
it requires a groat soul to appreciate success nnd te be able to chip a
fellow on tho back and congratulate him on his growing hank account when your own remain at
zero. Jealousy in business is a
fearful thing and competition in
trade only too often lays the seeds
of it. Jealousy is the brand of the
intellectual pigmy, the moral trade
mark of the small and mean. It is
a sign that the milk of human
kindness ceases to flow in the
breast of him who harbors it. We
see much of it in our own city.
What happens when a citizen by
perhaps years of hard unaided
effort achieves success in business
makes money and gets ahead of
his competitors, builds up a profitable business, gives employment to
many people and in a most substantial way aids in making the
city great and prosperous. What
do wesee? Congratulations? Praise?
In a measure, yes, for we can bless
ourselves that the fountains of
goodness and magnanimity are
not all dried up. Rut in many
quarters we see a horde of envious
critics and suspicious carpers doing
their worst to belittle the man's
standing, trying to pull him down
by besmirching his reputation,
reading into his every public act
an unworthy motive. The worst
offenders in this respect are those
who have no moral standing in the
community—financial, moral or
otherwise. The spectacle is that of
a crew of mongrels snarling and
yapping at the heels of a big dog.
Fortunately this mean species of
attack does no harm in the long
run. It often helps him. It singles him out as a man worthy of
notice and attack. You can always find the most sticks and
stones round the best apple tree in
the orchard. And the vituperation
aimed at a successful man does
him no more harm than fleas on a
dog, for as David Harum says:—
"A certain amount of fleas iB good
for a dog—keep him from worrying
about being a dog." Jealous criticism and envious attack are like a
two-edged sword, they most frequently do the more hurt to the
man who uses them than to the
object of his venom. There is more
behind the outward peaceful appearance of a community than
most people imagine.

THE CALL FOR AID
Although   the   question   of   the
Revelstoke exhibit at  the  Dominion Fair at  Calgary this   summer,
has been frequently treated with in
these columns, yet in   view  of  the
fact tbat the  necessary   funds for
this most important and beneficial
movement will be in  a  degree by
no means over adequate.jit is necessary that the public be  acquainted
with the facts as they  now  stand.
The city  council  has   given   1250
and the board of   Trade   and   the
Tourist association will be  able  to
gather   together   another   $200 or
more, which makes a total   sum of
1450. This amount is not butlicicnt
to carry nut the work  in   a  degree
proportionate with  what   the city
and the district df-serve and   as the
exhibit which will lie descriptive of
Reveli-toke,   it*    possibilities,    ite
advantages and its  resources,  will
directly and indirectly  benefit  the
district at large, it   is   only   right
that those  who   live   in   adjacent
lands should bear their share of the
expense,     Every branch of industry here will materially   benefit, if
we can, by publicity, and the judicious advertising induce prospective
farmers,   investors   and settlers to
locate here and develop* our agricultural   areas.     We fully realize
what   valuable   lands   we have in,
our vicinity and   we   know   what
they   are   capable   of    producing,
hence our future   is   very   bright
with the hope of opening  up  these
rich acres and establishing   Revelstoke as an agricultural  and  fruit
growing centre.     The   expense of

Successful Function by Mountain View Camp 229.
A popular and successful social
event took place on Wednesday even
ing, the members of Mountain View
Camp No. 229, Canadian Order of the
Woodmen of the World being the
hosts. The guests, each the recipient
of a handsome sealed invitation of
legal form, assembled in the Selkirk
Hall lodge room, the reception com
mittee ably carrying out their duties,
The feature of the evening was a progressive whist tournament which
proved exciting and close and was
without doubt one of the most keenly
contested and well played series of
games this season. The handsome
prizes were won by Miss Woodland,
Miss M. Hayes and Mrs. Carlson, and
Messrs. F. ConnerB, V. B. Woodland
and F. Berger.
During the evening Sovereigns R
H. Sawyer, S. Hillier and R. Armstrong, of the Independent Band,
favored the gathering with instrumental selections. Tbe refreshments
provided by the ladies were excellent
and great praise and hearty thanks
are due them for their dainty and
pretty decorated baskets. These baskets were auctioned off by Sov. L.
Cailyle to the company, who, whilst
providing much amusement for all
present by the artistic way in which
he carried out bis work, also obtained
excellent prices for his goodly stock of
wares.
Sovereigns W. G. Astle and Cliff
Corson as the committee of manage
ment, deserve credit for their work.
The Woodmen are popularly known as
all round entertainers and each and
every guest have nothing but the

As the result of their successful exploration of the deeper ore ehoots ol
the Silver Cup mine the management
proposes to run knottier tunnel at a
point near the boundary line between
the Sunshine and the Towser ground,
and about -100 (eet below the last tunnel. The Cup mined ard shipped in
March ItiO tons I i ore which netted
about fls.OOtj, the richest shipment in
the history of ibe mine.

Tbis consists of a washer following a
nut and so designed that by one lip
of the hole in the washer being lower
than the other it has a double hold
on the thread and is screwed on after
the niii.whicli it holds firmly in place,
us any buck pressure forces the upper
lip of thu washer into the thread and
so prevents its retreat.

stituted—Mustering in.
The Wednesday night sce8ion of
Gold Range Lodge No. 26, Knights of
Pythias, was beaides being interesting
a spectacular event and one which
marks an epoch in fraternal organizations in Revelstoke. The Uniform
rank which has been recently organized
wae officially mustered in on Wednesday after the close of the lodge by
Lieut. C. M. Skinner, of Wyoming,
who has been duly appointed muster
ing officer.
The election and installation ol
officers was carried out, followed by
the instituting and obligating of the
rank. This ritual, which is distinctly
military, was impressive and interesting. The following officers were
installed:
Sir Knight Captain—J. B. Scott.
"     "     1st. Lieut.—G H. Brock.
'J     "     2nd. Lieut.—T.  W. Brad-

"      "      2nd. Sergt.—T.  P. Smith.

Fraternity is a living principle.
When this principle dwells in the
heart of man he is a frater to all that
lives—he makes the world better and
happier. When one finds a man who
is devoid of fraternity, one finds a sel-
tisri, mean man, who invariably trades
upon the confidence of his fellows,
There are many such professing fraternity. The making of solemn vows
at a lodge altar does not always change
tbe heart of the initiite—but it helps
to do it. The inlluence of fraternity

BIG BEND
PROSPECTS
For Coming Season Exceedingly Bright -Rich Territory
Adjacent to Revelstoke of
Timber and Minerals.
This (season -ought to see the Hig
Bend come to the front and realise ns
glorious activity us in the rush of the
sixties The steamer Revelstoke provides transportation into the Bend and
will resume running in May.
It is no exaggeration to say the Big
Bend will produce millions of dollars
within the next few years from lumbering alone.
Then there are the gold fields, whose
reality and wealth were proved in the
early days from Eight-Mile to Big-
mouth, and the adj.iceut mountains!
are known to carry ore deposits of the
most promising character. With such
prospects, the steamer Revelstoke
should during tbe coining season
prove a favorite means of travel for
investors, lumber-picks and prospectors. This steamer makes a trip to
the Big Bend one of pleasure and interest as compared with previous
methods of travel.
Of most immediate interest is the
placer gold workings. Active operations are going on at Smith Creek,
Camp Creek and French Creek.
Mr. Guffey will be in Revelstoke in
about five weeks time and is taking a
large forceof men up to work on Smith
Creek.
Laforme Creek is the first creek on
the Big Bend trail on which mineral
locations have been made and any ex
lent of development work done. La-
forme Creek has ita confluence with
the Columbia Rirer about 17 miles
north of Revelstoke. Tbe creek lias
two main branches, one heading in a
glacier on the watershed between the
lllecillewaet and Columbia river systems, and tbe other coming in from
the north. Tbe length of the main
branch of Laforme Creek is about 14
miles. For half the distsnee from the
source it flows through a wooded valley, and tbe second half consists of a
canyon, witb the mountains exhibiting
sheer precipices on either aide.
On the north slope of Laforme
Creek and about half say up to tbe
mountain side i. the Little group, the
elevation being5,640 feet. 'Ibis con
sists of (two claims, the Lizzie Boss
and Rob Roy, and is owned by Alex.
McGregor. The ore is galena. Tbe
showing of ore on tbis property is one
of tbe best iu the Big Bend, the cut-
crop covering a space of 120 feet
square. Tbe main ore body so far
exposed is six feet in width snd
occurs in a limestone blue. This
outcrop has, we are informed, been
traced the full length of tbe claim
and into the other It has a strike of
N. 60 W. and a dip of 2, N.E. The
footwall is of schist and the banging
wall of lime.
Two engineers from Idaho are
visiting the McGregor property in
May.
There are 15 inches of solid ore,
with other streaks showing across the
entire width of the vein. The gangue
consists of silica and dolomite.   -
E gbty feet higher there is a fine
outcrop of ore of a width of 18 inches I
solid. This appears to have a strike |
of N. 40 W. and a dip of 65 N. E.,
indicating clearly that the two ore
chutes run together, and tbe possibility of a large body of ore existing at
tbis point. Forty feet higher there is
still another outcrop, and to the south
yet another,with seversl smaller showings about. There is also a good deal
of decomposed carbonate showing on
the rocks in the vicinity.
Development work consists of 50
feet of opening on the lower lead.show-
ing ore lor the entire length, several
open cuts on the various outcrops,
and a crosscut tunnel run into the
limestone bluff to cut tbe deposit.
This tunnel is in 52 feet.
The property is favorably situated
for exploitation. Tbe mountain slopes
at an angle of 35 degrees.
The property is reached by the same
trail as that which connects the Leslie
group witb the main Laforme Creek
trail.
Curious Old Train Rules.
There are some curious rules in the
old codes of instruction for train men.
In a book published by the Allegheny
Railroad in 1869 the following rule is
found: It is the duty ol conductors to
require of the engineer attention to
the Rules of the Road. Negligence or
recklessness on the part of the engine
er will be taken as proof of the inefficiency of the oonductor, unless such
oonduct hss been duly and distinctly
reported on every occasion of its taking place. lie will, at the same time,
treat the engineer witb that consideration due to his very responsible duties
and will always advise with bim in
case of difliculty.

1,000,000 Trees Planted This
Year in Province.
Fruit growing in British Columbia
is fjst attaining propottions which
promise soon to make it a serious

The acreage to be placed under cultivation this year will surprise all
former records, according to olficial
information in the possession of Mr.
Tom Wileon, of Vancouver, Dominion
inspector of fumigation.
All fruit trees imported into this
province pass through tlie hands of
Mr. Wilson, who enforces a rigorous
inspection. The test consists of a
microscopical examination, and in
the event of the detection of disease or
the presence of pests the trees arc

General discussion iih to fruit growing, bee keeping, etc., brought out
many interesting features. Mr. Law
stated that in tbe Golden bee Revel

finest clover producer of any, and
honey and bee keeping Bhould be a
profitable industry, moreover the bees
helped the fruit and the fruit the bees
The meeting resolved to gather up
all possible information regarding
lands under cultivation and orchard
area", etc., and to endeavor to secure
more funds to ensure the success of
the exhibit.
A few weeks ago Manager Richard
son of the Do i in ion Fair booked a>
an attraction lor tbe Fair an airship
to give a (light daily. Yesterday lie
received a letter from
Nauton, Alts.,  stating
of bydroclorio aoid.
"It is safe to estimate that considerably over a million fruit trees will
be planted in various sections of
Rritish Columbia this spring," snid
Mr. Wilson. " During -March, our
busiest month, I inspected a total of
over 600,000, and this month tbe
figures will not show any big reduction. This only refers to imported
trees. The favorite varieties are
apples pears, peaches, plums and
siriinisi Of these apples and peaches
constitute the Isrgeet number. The
trees are principally secured from
Oregon, although Iowa and Washington make many shipments to British
Columbio. This of course is exclusive of the supply furnished by nurserymen on the cosst and up-country.
The demand for fruit teees in recent
yeais has been so vast that they could
not Iill all the orders, despite the
increasing acreage yearly laid out in
nut series.
" Fruitgrowers are also obliged to
import strawberry and raspberry
plants from the United Slates Already this season several hundred
thousand of both varieties bave been
inspeoted here. The Oregon nursery
men are enterprising. Every fall
they have every fruitgrowing section
in the piovince canvassed by agents,
and the orders are executed in the
following spring. The distribution of
the trees and plants embraces nearly
i resident of | every district Bouth of the main line
that   he   was | of the C.l'.R. from the Rockies to the
Nelson, the Boundary and the Okanagan. Three or four years hence,
according to the locality, these trees
will be bearing aud supplying fruit to
the home market and the people of
the new provinces. 1 don't think
fruitgrowing can be oveidone for tie
growth of population iv'll maintain a
good demand for many years at profitable prices, and even a substantial
reduction would still leave a band-
some return on the money invested."
Mr. Wilson has been a horticulturist all his life. He received his
training in Scotland and later wns
dispatched to India, where he applied
his knowledge to good advantage. He
was formerly in charge of the famous
Coldstream or Aberdeen fruit orchard
in the Okanagan district.
