averag   B out    of 7   days In     the

of shells for ths British government
nt tbe Canadian I'acitic railway
shops in Revelstoke, tbc following
letter having been received by the
president, T. Kilpatrick from Q. 8.
T. Kilpatrick, Esq.
President,   Board ol Trade,
Ilevi'lstoke, B. C.
Dear Sir,—I notice that the govern
ment ue arranging to have large
quantities of sheik Ior war purposes
manufactured in the machine shops of
this province. The Canadian I'acitic
railway shops in this city nre as well
equipped as most other machine
shops in this province,  but     are not
used to any extent by the company
and the city has an unlimited supply
ol electric power which can be utilized in the shops.
The opportunity to get work start
ed In this city as well as at the coast
Bhould not iu my opinion bc overlooked and it has occurred to me that
the board of trade should get busy
and endeavor to get the Canadian
I'acitic railway to permit these shops
to be used for the manufacture of
army supplies. The benefit to Kevelstoke which would result from this
hcim: done requires no comment from
me. Can you not. arrange to cnll a
meetim* of the board at nn early date
to discuss it?
Yours truly,
O. 8.   McCARTBR
A  committee composed  of R. How
son, C.B. Hume, W.M. Lawrence and
T. Kilpatrick was appointed to interview the city council regarding
free electric power for the work.
A motion was passed asking .1. M.
McKay, Canadian Pacilic railway
superintendent, to take the project
op with ('.rant Hall, general manager
of western lines and with F. W. Peters, superintendent at Vancouver, and
thc executive will interview Mr. HaUl
rn the subject when he passes through
the city.
Speaking to a Mail Herald reporter
Mr. McKay said that he was unable
to say whether the Revelstoke shops
were adapted to turn out shells. It
would be a matter for report by the
mechanical department. He intended
to go into the quest ion thoroughly
[without delay.
Last year the power plant was insured for $62,500 ut a premium cost
of fU65, This year insurunce on $80,-
000 can be obtained lor sumo. It had
been the intention of the council to
reduce the insurance this year to
$25,000 at a cost of .-S485 on account
of the better buildings und because
of the small value of part of the
The mayor pointed out that for an
additional $."itH> the city could obtain
insurance for $Xfl,CO0 and he thought
thut it would be good business to
take it. Alter discussion His Worship
assured the deputation thut ample
insurance  would  be  placed.
A letter was received from rf.
Humphreys offering to sell a lathe
which cost $">O0 for $800. C. North,
electrical superintendent, explained to
the council that a lathe would be useful at the power plant and the council decided to ofler Mr. Humphreys
$175 Ior it.
W. H. Wallace wrote asking for
the position as supervisor of the
power house work,
George I). Shaw appeared before thc
council and oliered to deposit a
cheque for in per cent, of the amount
of the power house in place of a
bond. The  proposal was accepted.

Ou May 18 at Vancouver, Alberni,
Fort George, Cranbrook, Fernie and
yuesuel the government agents will
open to pre-emptors about 700 pur-
cels of surveyed lands which bave
been In reserve and have been subdivided for settlement. The lands are
located at points ranging from about
in miles from Vuucouver, near
j Sechelt, to Sunderland chunnel along
the mainland coast; on Malcolm,
ReJonda, Cortes and Thurlow Islands; adjoining the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway in the valley of the
Fraser; in Canoe River valley, and at
various points in  East Kootenay.
im the coast and islands numerous
tracts of logged-otl lands, former
timber license, which, in accordance
with the policy of the government to
render timbered agricultural lands
available to settlement as soon as
the timber is cut, have been surveyed
into tracts averaging 40 acres in extent. They nil be opened to prc-
; emptors at the oflire of the Govcrn-
j ment agent in the court house at
j Vancouver on May 18. These blocks ol
lots are situated near SecheJlt, in vicinity ol Lund on Malaspina peninsula, on Redonda, Thurlow and Cortes islands and on Jackson Bay, Sunderland channel Ai pamphlet describ-
| ing them has been prepared by the
department ol lands containing maps
and full particulars regarding these
i On Malcolm island 247 lots, each ot
10 acres, and 40 lots of 40 ucicb each
on Nootka island, will be opened to
rc't lenient on May 1*, at the office
of the government agent at Alberni.
Malcolm island by Uroiight >n strait,
was reserved in 1901 as a Finnish
colony. The colony continued foi
some years, operating and carrying
on business on a communltv basis.
Circumstances finally caused the
greater   number  of   the original     Bet-
tiers to take up land individually, others locating on Vancouver island
and various places in the vicinity.
There are now living on the island
about 250 people cliietly members ol
the original Finnish colony. The
main settlement is at Sointula, where
there is an excellent school, having
an average attendance of 47 pupils, a
government wharf post office, and cooperative store. During the past summer about 10,080 acres was stibdivid
ed, and is now being opened to set-
t'lers. The lots on Nootka island,
where there has been much settlement
dining the past few years, are sub
divisions of former timber licence.
At Fort George on May I" about.
30,000 acres divided into lots averaging IliO acres in extent situated between Guilford and Tetc Jaune Cache
adjoining or close to the Grand
Trunk Pacific railwuy on the south
fork'of the Fraser valley and 3'J lots,
bottom land fronting on the river in
Canoe River valley, will be opened to
settlement. Last season sumo 80,-
efMHi acres, containing about 550 preemptions, were opened to settlers on
the south fork of the Fraser. These
lots, and those to be opened on May
18 are in a belt covering three miles
on cither Bide of the railway placed
in reserve for settlement in 1907,
some years prior to the construction
of the railway.
i At the office of thc government,
agent at Cranbrook about 12,0in>
acres of logged-off lands, and at the
office of the government, agent at
Fernie, about 1000 acres of similar
lands, will be opened to pre-emption
on May I". Thc lots comprised are
sub-divisions of former timber limits
in various parts of these districts,
near Cranbrook, Kimberley, Fort
Steele, Mayoook, War dner, Ryan.

T,   Kilpatrick,   W.M.   Lawrence,  0,   B.
Hume ami it. Howson Interviewed the
council and usked it to ofler [roe
Mr. Kilpatrick said that tlio executive of the bourd of trade bad tak
en up the question of the manutac
ture of Bhel'ls and thought that an
oiler       of       free       power would
be a great Inducement to
the railway company. Tbe manufacture Of Shells would lead to the
employment of a number of men.
Mr. Lawrence said tbat the board
of trade had no idea whether the
Canadian   Pacific  railway   would   take
up the proposal but lt would strengl
ben tbeir bands if the Council would
make the grant.
In K'l'.y to the n ayor C. North,
electrical superintendent     said    that
the  capacity  of the powei    plant could
provide 200 horse power mine.     The
Canadian  Pacilic railway    at present
I was not using half the minimum pro
vided for in its contract,
Mr, Hume th iii-'lu that the city
would have plenty of power %hen the

being manufactured in Vancouver and
Winnipeg and tin manufacture here
would  be of much benefit to the city,

Handsome Building With Dressing Rooms and

Trials and Tribulations of Trip
The following experience of a visit
to British Columbia in the early
days, Including a visit to Kevelstoke
are extracts Irom "The Wanderings
of an Entertainer" in the April
number of the Wide World.
We lound Cranbrook', our destination, a BollUly-buHt and prosperous
town with up-to-date hotels and a
inn.gnilwe.nt o*i>t riv-bouHfr, where' (we
had a capital reception. The next
place, however, was one to which we
should never have been sent. lt was
llothlng mow than a village consist.'
lng of dilapidated houses inhabited
hy a lot ot rulliaus who worked a silver m'iue that went under Lake Moyie
from which the place derived its
name. Unfortunately, we arrived here
on the Saturday, and had to entertain an audience that consisted for
thc most part of half-drunken miners. It is a curious fact that no one
thinks he knows better what an entertainment should he like than the
ignorant boor, and here was I landed
in, a town full of these creatures, with
no possible means ot escape, the position rendered the more delicato
through the presence of ladies in the
Our tirst trouble was to secure accommodation. Thc ladies refused to
go into therhotels, and took lodgings.
My manager and bis wife secured
rooms at an "hotel," and experienced
the time of their liveB. The paper
hung in strips from the walls of their
bedroom, the food was,uneatable, the
attendance nil, aud the hotel patrons
decidedly hostile. I took refuge at a
small hotel kept by a French-Canadian, and, though it was anything
but luxurious, or e\en comfortable,
it was the best accommodation I
could secure.
The popular verdict on our performance was that we ought to be
shot for swindling, and as an angry
crowd waited outside the hall, presumably for that amiable purpose,
things looked black. Acting on my
advice, our manager got a Itiody-guard
together, and in this way the ladles,
who had become genuinely frightened,
were escorted to their temporary
homes. I had my packing to do, and
was left in the building alone. Having linished my work, 1 opened the
stage door, prepared for an angry
mob of half-drunken miners, but
found the streets deserted, so I lock
ed the door, lit a cigar, selected the
middle of thc road, and walked hack
to tbc hotel. Entering the vestibule,
I found a crowd of those who disagreed with my notions ol art. The
mutteringB and offensive language
grew so loud that I turned and laced
them, and, having no audience to
consider, gave them a piece of my
"You have no right, I said, "to
blame me or insult the Uidies because you are unable to understand
or appreciate the entertainment. The
people you should blame are those
who, knowing the class ol entertainment I give, booked me here. Where

coming here, and gain nothing in

criticized, but to give you an opportunity of seeing a show that has met
with the highest approval in your
OWn cities nl Ottawa, Montreal, anil
Toronto, in addition to such places
.ib New York, London and Paris. If
' 'iii- i if the criticisms published is not
accurate, you have a right to nccuse
me ol fraud; but us they are exactly
what the  papers said you     have      no
right to suggest misrepresentation or
fraud, and ymi may take it from me
that tbe fuult is with yon and your

They had nothing to say, so 1 went
np to my bedroom tired and disgusted. As I got into bed something

then excited stutc of mind, 1 thought
must be' a bomb; but as I did not feel
mypelf being blown to atoms I got
up, lit a candle, and, to my astonishment, discovered the object to bc

around for a few seconds, and then
seized on the chop, which I had placed on a chair, and left with a growl
of discontent, My curiosity beting

a bedroom lower down thc corridor,
where he carefully burled tbe chop

threw away about live shillings, but
I think it was worth iL, il only to
see the amazed expression on the
rascals' faces.
(Inr next objective was Nelson, on
the other side of Lake Kootoinay,
which we reached by steamer. The
lake was covered w'ith drift ice,
through which our boat had to push
its way. Thc scenery was most impressive, great mountains, with peaks
covered with snow, rising almost
sheer out of the water. It was growing dark as we rounded a Bmall
peninsula and Nelson came into view,
a blaze of light. It reminded . ub of
Medicine Hat, where gas coBts practically nothing; but here at Nelson
they went one better, for the illumin-
ant wub electricity, thc power being
obtained from thc Salmon River
Falls, just above the town. I stumbled across several houses, within earshot of wolf-howls, that were not only lighted and heated by electricity,
but employed this power for doing all
the housework—cooking, washing, and
driving the sewing-machine! We had
a good time in Nelson, and it was
with some reluctance that we had to
hurry away by train for Slocan City,
so that we could catch the steamer
connection  there for  New  Denver.
To judge by the reception given to
visitors, all Slocan seemed to desire
was that those who arrived by train
should leave as soon as they could
by boat and vice versa. For some
reason or other our steamer was not
quite ready to start when we arrived
Irom Nelson, sh my manager and l
inspected the city, which was soon
done. I then offered to stand him a
cocktail, and we went in search ol
this alluring drink. Two ol the hotels
didn't know how to make one, mid on
asking at the third, where we were
told we could get one, we found that
we had called on the wrong day, as
the barman had gone ofi for a day's
The so-called hotels were little
more than wooden shanties, being
nothing but drinking saloons, which
did not seem so unnatural in this
wild region; but the town-bal'l made
us regret we had no Camera with us.
Imagine a tumble-down cottage, with
a frontdoor partly oil its hinges. In
the door there w«s accommodation
for two strips of glass, one of which
remained but the other had gone, its
place being taken by a piece ol dis
carded red Manuel' shirt, held in
position by a few nails. Over the
door, in faded White letters roughly
printed, was inscribed "Town-Hall."
The windows were so dirty that
blinds could be dispensed with, but
one room—evidently that in which
thc city's business was transacted-
bad a blind made from t.he resi,Iue ol
the shirt that filled the unglazed
pane nf the door. This odd curtain
hung Irom a pioco of rope Wed across
the window, and was only discovered
with difficulty, as the blind and
window  were about tin' same  tint.
There  may   have been  won    resid
ents in this city, butwedldjnot notice thorn, illbough we saw practically the entire population when the
boat started, as the people, apparently, huve only one occupation—the ar*

This queer town waB situuted in ideal
scenery, backed by mountains und
facing the lake. To right and left
were other mountains.
New Denver wus lurgor than Slociin,
but    instead of being backed  by precipitous mountains it was built on u
'pcuinbulu witb a small buy bitten out
'of it. The pier wus at. the point ol the
peninsula, irom which a siduwulk of
'logs led to the city and its one hotel,

The brakosman showed us     its     ap

were on eucii side two large painted

The brakeman    suggested   another
lamp, and, thinking it would enable
us to see one another, .1 agreed,
whereupon a further odour of rancid
oil was added to the ntmosphere.
Some more coke was added to the
stove, and then the brakesman de
parted, taking with him the smell of
a pipe that ought to have been
thrown away  the year  previously.
The company now wrapped themselves in their blankets—which looked
as though they had been made by the
government for tlie Indians and intercepted on their wny to the reservation—nnd went to bed. The manager's wife lay ou one box, her husband next to her, uud I beside him,
while the other ladies occupied the
remaining box. Tired out, we wero
soon asleep, and no sooner were we
asleep than the train Bturted—and
startled us at the same time by a
series of crashes as the locomotive
dragged the iiioscly chained trucks
into  motion.
"What's that?" excluimed the ludies,  roused suddenly Irom slumber.
"We're oft," replied my niuiiuger,
drowsily, uud the next moment we
were off, for the engine suddenly
stopped and the trucks closed up with

After we had extricated ourselves

fastened itself on thc reur of our

Canadian locomotive, which snorted
und bissed and eroaned like some
gigantic monster in distress. Then

Sleep became quite out of the question, for ut every hult thc trucks

piscatorial urt, and learnt thut when

to explode the dynamite under water,
when half the lake's tinny inhabitants rise to the surface dead. Thc
objection to this method of unglitfg is
that it bas the effect of causing the

sport thut makes the lakes attrnc-

Rules On  Active  Service  Are  Many
and Very Strict.
On active service the British soldier finds himself surrounded by
many pitfalls. Discipline in the army
is necessarily strict In time of peace,
but when the war bugles begin to
blare It becomes ten times more
strict, nnd what appear to the ordinary man as perfectly innocent actions
become very grave offences against
military law. For Instance, one
would think that a soldier suffering
from the "blues" or afflicted witb
the "hump" would be at liberty to
disseminate his gloom among bia
mates; but that is not so. Should he
do so he Is liable to prompt court-
martial und long imprisonment for
creating unnecessary despondency ln
tbe ranks. "Keep smiling" must ever
be the watchword of the soldier on
active service.
It seems a noble thing indeed for a
soldier lo rush from the ranks under
fire and pick up a wounded comrade
wbo bus fallen by the way, and in
such cases Ihe average citizen would
think a Victoria Cross well earned.
Military law takes a different view of
tbe matter, nnd Instead of the V, C.
awards the dreaded "D. C." (drumhead court-martial), for no soldier
must leave the ranks without permission of his ollicers, nnd "attending to
wounded" is one of tbe excuses specially mentioned in tbe War Office
manual as being Inadmissible in cases
of this kind. ■ •
Tho lot of the soldier taken prisoner hy Ihe enemy is not a happy one,
but his capture is only the beginning
of his troubles. in due course he
will have to account lo his own side
for his misfortune, and If he cannot
show that his capture was in no way
due to carelessness on bis part he will
bave to suffer a  heav.-  penalty.
Nor is that all. II may be that in
the course of his captivity an excellent chance of escape presents Itself.
Should he fail to make use of It,
court-martial and punishment awaits
him if the ollicers of his regiment get
to know of his omission. Tbere are
still soldiers in the army, called up
with the reserves, who have unpleasant recollections of punishment for
these offences ill South Africa, though
they plead that they were not really
careless and did not know of the way
of escape at hand.
"Sleeping on his post" is one of
the most serious offences against military law, and In aggravated cases
death is a penalty that may be awarded. In the South African War sentenced ranged from two to seven
years' imprisonment. Yet tbis is an
offence for which many nun in the
stress of war cannot morally be held
responsible. It may happen that after long days of forced marching, followed hy sleepless nights, a soldier
BUCCtimbB to sheer exhaustion when
at a post of danger. No matter what
his physical slate may have been,
there IS no palliation of his offence,
because the knowledge that the safety of his comrades depends on his
wakefulness is held to be sufficient to
drive slumber from the eyes of the
most weary soldier who ever paced
at bis post.
"Hoist Witii His Own Petard."
Tbe one sort of metaphor thai
ought not to get mixed In a history
of the war is ;. military metaphor.
However, when histories of the war
begin to appear a fortnight after tbe
wit begins either the writer or the
printer has to Bel down much in

How the Produot of Different Era*
May Be Distinguished.
The word "tapestry" needs to be dee-
fined, for lt may mean anything trom
figured furniture covering to carpets.
Tapestry as .the word Is here used ls
a pictured fabric woven by an artisan
on a hand loom, In which the design
forms the cloth and is not worked
npon a basic tissue. Tho design Itself
ls painted by an artist, nnd the loom,
cither upright or horizontal, has altered but little from prehistoric times to
the present The difference ln the
tapestries througb the ages lies ln the
dyes, ln the design and in tbe talent
of those who translate Oie druwings
In weaving. The speclen of stitch alters not and belongs to all peoples-
Asiatic, European, aborigines of North
and South America.
For those who would be quickly wise
In a general classification of old tapestry It may be said loosely that three
great periods of design and weaving
dominate the history of title art First,
the primitive or Gothic; next, the
renaissance, and then tbat florescence
of decorative design which belongs
more peculiarly to France ln tbe seventeenth and eighteenth centurlea As
these three great periods of artistic
development prevailed all over the
Christian world in all varieties of art
one can, by using this simple key, arrive almost instantly at the century
to which a tapestry belongs.—Scrlt>-

observed acting strangely on a back

iinuck along Bridge street, breaking
valuable plate glass windows, cutting
and maiming himself until be was
besmeared with blood. The police
caught bim in his mad career and he
was taken to the hospital, where Dr.
Campbell attended his wounds. The
man had, with four or live others,
crossed the Hope mountains, but losing their way on thc summit,, whore

of foo.l. The fatigue of the tramp an.l
hunger witb mental strain caused thc
