Children  Wave  Flags, Cheer
and Sing—General Hughes'
Major-Oeneral Hon. Sam Hughes,
minister of militia who arrived In
Revelstoke on Thursday afternoon on
n apecial train, w>as given a reception which, In hiB own words, will
forever remain a bright spot In his
memory. As the train drew into the
station the entire school population
of Revelstoke welcomed it with a
burst of cheering and the waving of
hundreds of Mags, a demonstration
which was renewed when the general
appeared at the door of his private
Gen. Hughes, who wore a service
uniform, was welcomed by Mnyor
Foote, H. Manning, chairman of the
school board, T. Kilpatrick, president of the board of trade, A. B.
Kincaid, president of the Conservative association and CF. Landmark.
After the exchange of a few words
•Gen. Hughes made his way through
the crowded platform and ascended
the steps leading to the Revelstoke
hotel which were thronged with children. Here surrounded bv children he
addressed the crowd on the platform
below. He congratulated Revelstoke
on th>> appearance of the school
children whose healthy complexions,
he said, were evidently undimmed \by
thc great war now raging. He thanked the mayor, the school trustees,
the teachers and the people of Revelstoke for the great demonstration
they had given him and. said thnt if
there was anything that he could do
for Revelstoke it certainly would be
done. Th" reception would forever
remain a bright spot in his memory.
He knew that those from Revelstoke
who had egone or would go to the
front would do their duty nobly und
bc a credit to the city.
Gen. Hushes then descended to the
j.latform and greeted several former
acquaintances. He was introduced to
a number of citizens and bad a
rhr»ry word for many of the children.
After a discussion in his car of tbe
military situation so fnr as Revelstoke is concerned he again appeared
on th? platform and ns the train left
the station was bidden farewcW with
much cheering, waving of Hags nnd
the singing  of  "Tipperary."
Seldom has so large a crowd assembled at the station. The school
children from the high, Selkirk and
Central schools met at the corner of
McKenzie avenue and Second street,
where flags were distributed to every
child, nnd marched in procession to
the station. The sight was a remarkable one as the hend of the procession reached the station the rear
was passing the city hall, the children cheering tinging and waving
flags. Many were the appreciative remarks on their numbers, healthy appearance, good looks and well cared

St. Paul-Seattle Service to be Drilled   Into   Missed   Hole-
Resumed Beginning of
Prospects for travel to the coast
in 1910 look very promising, observed H. W. Brodie, general passenger
agent of British Columbia lineB for
the Canndian Pacific railway, following his trip to the east. While in
Winnipeg and Montreal he attended
conferences of trallic and operuting
otlicers at which plans for the summer timetables were discussed. A
meeting of passenger agents representing lines all over the United
.-■'tates and Canada bas been called
for Jan. 25 for the purpose of making truffle arrangements. Mr. Brodie
said thnt although the details hnd
not yet been definitely settled it was
likely that trains No. 13 and 14, thc
Rt. Paul-Seattle service, would be
put into operation again about June
1 to supplement the service now furnished by the Imperial Limited and
the Toronto-Vancouver expresses. The
passenger official expressed the
opinion that the Panama-Pacific exposition would bring a large number
of tourists to the coast via Vancouver.

Dr. J. H. Hamilton, coroner, went
to the scene of tlie accident on Wednesday night and an imiucst was

That Revelstoke will certainly lie a

contingent was announced liy Major
Cen. Hon. Sam Hughes, minister of

Mulyor Foote, T. Kilpatrick, president of the hoard of trade, A. E. Kincaid president of the Conservative association, Lieut. Grant and Lieut.
Brock, who discussed the uiiestlou
with h'im in his privute car during
the minister's visit to the city on
Gen.   Hut-lies also  stated that     he
saw no reason why Revelstoke should
| not be a centre     for     training   the
. volunteers for  the    third contingent,
I especially if a   company could be recruited  in the district, but he   post-
' poned  giving a definite decision     on
the question until he had had an opportunity     of     conferring    with  the
chief militia officers at the coast.
The deputation    pointed out to thc
minister that  Revelstoke possessed a
commodious   drill hall and that   the
district   was well      adapted    for  the
i training of troops.  It wns nlso men-
' tioned  that thi city  was giving    the
best of its young manhood     for the
1 service  of the  empire  and    that     it
1 was entitled  to whatever return   lay
! within the power of the militia     department.

The city council last night at its
j first regular meeting for the year
I decided, at. thc suggestion of tlie
' mayor, that all purchasing for the
city shall in future be doue by the
city clerk instead of liy the various
departments, as in the past. An exhaustive report on tlie sewer system
wns presented hy the plumbing inspector and at the request of a delegation the council decided that
Tuesday Feb. 9, should he proclaimed a civic half holiday in honor of Revelstoke's tirst. winter sports carnival. The meeting started promptly at
fs o'clock and was over soon after
d.'.W.i nnd wns one of tlie briefest
meetings for many months, the
mayor keeping the council strictly to
business and permitting no debates
out of order.
A deputation consisting of B. R.
Atkins, I<\ I!. Wells and A. Halvor-
son appeared on behalf of the Re
velstoke Ski club.
Mr. Atkins asked that a half holiday be declared on the afternoon of
Tuesday, February 9, on the occasion of the first winter sports carnival. He said that with the generous assistance of citizens a program
hnd been prepared which he believed
wouid provide excellent sport, would
bc- of advantage to thc city com-
mcrcial'ly and would draw wide at
tcntlon to the city. A prize list of
the value of $1110 had heen obtained
,-.nd the club hoped to lay the foundation for a successful nnnual event.
This year they were not going to
nny large expense, and were relying
largely upon natural features, but he
believed that the prizes would compare favorably with those of other
similar events. The program included
a curling match between th-> board
of trade and city council, a mnSiiuer-
ndc carnival, long distance ski ma
; a grand parade and other events. Tlie>
half holiday was asked so that every
one with skis or snow shoes could
join the parade. It was intended to
have moving pictures taken and he
believed that it would he a splendid
advertisement of the city as a c litre
I for winter sports and as a resort for
tourists. It wns possible that the
champion ski jumper of Canada
; would be present.
| The mayor thought that the idea
i was an excellent one nnd might lead
! to an grand annual event. He hoped
the council would grant the request
Aid. Masson moved that the request be granted The Rowland carnival wns tlie luest advertisement of
thut city. Thcre thc stores were
closed for thre? afternoons dur.nt thet
carnival. He thought thai Revelstbke
being on the main line should drnw
more people than Rossland. People
would probably come from Kamloops
and llmllar citios where they had no
winter sports. Hockey was one of
the drawing cards la Roeeland and
be hoped before long that Revelstoke
would  have a l.i ••■  covered rink.
Beconded by Aid. Smythe the mo
tion was passed. the mayor In answer to Mr. Atkins saying that the
hall holiday would apply to the
n ho.,1s.
The mayor s.ud thai In the i est
each department had done its     own
buying. He thought this wus a mistake. He believed that the buying
should be under ope hc,,i and that
the city clerk should issue a reejinsi
tion for everything purchased. Thc
city could then gel discounts and a
great saving could be enacted. A
private form would onl) have one
buyer. The city clerk could check the
ai - oiints and buy at thc cheapest
Aid.   Bei]  believed   the idea a    i- 1
one and seconded by Aid. Masson
the suggestion  was  adopted
Aid.   llourne     CUggMted      that       it
mlghl  iee Inconvenient for the polta
i department  to  get  a requisition      lor
every   pound  of  beef  bought.
The mayor said that the city clerk
could l.e notified of the number of
11 lionere and    the    c ty elei

reaent lived, he laid,

A   report wns  received  from    W.   J.
■ itle on  the    state of  the   city
sewers. The report showed that the
sewer pipe was in had condition und
that a pump was needed. The report
wus referred to thepuUlc works committee.
Several cheques for refund of sewer
tax were luid before tha counc.l and
it was decided that the city clem
should write to the inspector of
municipalities to enquire whether the
refunds would   he legal.
The appointment of a city auditor
and city solicitor was referred t'j
und the city clerk was instructed to
write to various chartered accountants to find what their churges
would  he to audit the city  books.

council slieiuld tuke some part in the
necessary work of advertising the
Aid. Mackenrot said the cit.- was
advertised well enough, it was advertised from one end of the confluent to the other as having a rotten
sewer system. It was impossible to
ask industries to come to the city.
R. Tapping s.iid that he had heard
that a movement was on foot to
close a lane at the back of the opera
house. He asked if this was the intention and {,-ave notice thut he
would tuke legal action to oppose
the proposal.

appear that even tho summits of the

There arc three recognized mineral
belts within the Trout Lake mining
division, of which the Central ls the
more important, and extends from
the Lardeau division on the northwest 'in a south-easterly direction,
croselng the, Lardeau river between
the towns of Gerrard and Poplar
Creek, and continuing thence into tho
Ainsworth division. It Is within this
belt that the greatest dcvdlopment of
minerals has taken  place.
Thc Lime 'Dyke Belt parallels thc
Central as far south-eaBterly as Lake
crock, beyond which it loses its individuality. South-west of the Central Belt, on the south-west side of
tho Trout Lukel.ardeau valley, lies
the South-west Mineral Belt, which
consists of a series of bauds of
siliceous lime, slates, and a little
serpentine lying against thc granite
forming thc divide between the
Trout Lake-Lardeau and Arrow Lake

by declaring that there wus no need
for an act of parliament to compel

cveryman in the realm to assist his
sovereign in repelling an invasion of
British shores, and that it is a duty
expressed in no statute, but inherent

R. M. Winslow Announces Atj-
; enda for Sessions Next Week
—Important Resolutions
R. M. Winslow, secretary of the
Uritish Columbia Fruit Growers' association, announces that tho necessary preliminary arrangements have
hceti completed for the twenty-Ufth
annual meeting of that organization,
which will be held In Victoria on
Tuesday  and  Wednesday  next.

need of economy would so lessen ut-

case of the Central Fanners' institute
and other provincial agricultural conventions. The prevailing view, however, Ims been that tho general situu-
tion makes it all the more necessary
I for representative fruit growerB to
meet for tbo discussion of measures
for tho benefit of the Industry, and
i so the meeting will take place ns
The reports of the president und
secretary will show that 1914 bus
been, for the associution, one of considerable activity und growth. The
membership now totals S'J'*>, including the twenty-six affiliated locul
Fruit Growers' Associations and selling unions. Among the notable activities of the iiBsociution has been the
very successful ' advertising cam- (
paign which it enrried out, with tbe
object of popularizing British Columbia fruit. The reports of the various '
Btanding committees, also, will show i
that helpful results have been secured
along mnny lines.
lnlorest, however, will probably
centre upon the resolutions which delegates from the various affiliated organizations will present for conBlder-
atlon, and many of which will bring
matters of tbe utmost importance before the convention. It seems certain that keen 'interest will be urous-
i od by these, and that, as a result,
' lively and action-producing discussion will characterize the sessions of
■ the associution.

After serving a few months aB a
private in the University Men's
Force training at Epsom, Geoffrey L.
Haggen has been given a commission
in the loth Manchester regiment and
was to rep'ort to the Ibrigadier of the
East Midland infantry at Bury, St.
Edmonds before four o'clock on Jan.
1. Under date of January 2, he
writes his mother, MrB. E. A. Haggen. "Since I last wrote you I have
received my full orders, got my
equipment and made a start in the
life of an officer. I was detailed for
a month's course at the officer's
training school here (Bury St. Edmund's) and 30 of us arrived yesterday for the opei-iing session of the
school. The course will be a fairly
complete one and in a month we
should learn a good deal. The brigadier addressed us this morning and
told us that while we would be kept
with our noses pretty well to the
grindstone we would get a training
such as to make us efficient officers
and he assured ub that we were within measurable distance of the time
when we should he face to face with
the enemv. The authorities have secured an old house for us to live in
und we contribute to our own mess,
but as that is run in in a very
economical fashion it is estimated
that a deposit of £5 will suffice to
cover all the household expenses foi
the period of trairfing. That of course
will be more thun met by our wages"
Further on in his letter Mr. Haggen
says, "There came a parcel from the
Women's Canadian club lull of odds
and ends and containing two excellent pairs of socks. I appreciate getting so many things from Revelstoke

hard one to handle. They hold some

hardly right to deprive them ol it,

A hearty vote of thanks wns tendered to Mr. McKay for his kindness
and it was hoped that he may again

John Mcllwee Tells of Profits
During Early Months-
Quality of Rock
In Mr. Justice Clement's courtroom in Vancouver Iiub been gathered togethor an aggregation of the
leading mining and engineering ox-
ports on the North American continent. Thoy aro all appearing on one
side or tho other as advUserB and
witnesses in the suit of J. Mcllwee
& Sons against Foley Bros., Welch
ci Stewart, in which tho plaintiffs
claim over $500,0i>0 damages. Both
parties are well known contractors
in the railway world and have ample
means to engage tho greatest, counsel
and expert witnesses to fight their
Briefly the action arises out of the
boring of the famous Rogers Pass
Tunnel through the heart of Mount
Macdonald m the Sclkirks, by which
the Canadian Pacilic railway will
eliminate several miles of snowsheds
and much dlflcult grade. The tunnel,
which will be a large double-track
line five miles long, will allow for a
descent in grude. emerging a thousand fc-.il below the present lino in
Beaver Valley. Messrs. Foley Bros.
WeHch & Stewart are the principal
contractors, and Messrs. J. Mcllwee
& Sons the sub-contractors for the
"pioneer" tunnel and other work.
Bonuses Offered.
As an incentive to have the line
completed by December, 1916, large
bonuses bave been oflered, Messrs.
Mcllwee having been promised a bonus of $1000 a foot for     evory     foot
per month is regarded as about the
maximum ever accomplished in tunnel driving. The oiler ol the ¥1000
per foot bonus waB to be good up to
250 feet, thus giving the subcontractors the chance of eurning sKfl.OOO in
bonus money.
The pioneer tunnel system is a new i
method of scientific   tunnel construction,  whereby a separate small   tun- ■
nei  measuring  nine feet      by six     is
driven through the mountain     at   a
dlstamce of  fifty   feet away  from   the
main  tunnel.  This enables side     cuts'
to be made at intervals and work to \
E.V. Bod well, K.C., for Foley Bros.
Welsh & Stewart. Mr. Taylor and
Mr. Davis are old antagonists in
mining disputes, and both have great
knowledge of geology and mechanics,
having met ln the famous Star vs
White case.
Geologists Present.
The case iuvolves in addition to
ItB legal features, questions involving questious of geology, engineering
mechanics, and the scieuce of compression and boring machines. In
support of their contontiouB that the
geological formation of Mount Macdonald Is such that thc tunnel will
eventually bave to be driven through
a heavy masB of quartzite which lies
in a fold on tho mountain, the defendants have called Professor Reginald Daly, head of tho department
of geology in Harvard University,
and will later on call Mr. R, W.
Brock, dean of the British Columbia
University,,and former head of the
gcologicgeologic survey of Canada.
Both gentlemen are authors of works
d'-afing with the geology of the Selkirk range.
The plalntllfs in support of their
i case have called Mr. Howlnud Bancroft, a United States government
geologist, who ut one time collobor-
ated with Mr. Duly in tho study of
the Selkirk range.
Another famous witness called by
the plaintiffs is Mr. D.W. Drtmton of
Denver, a well known consulting engineer and inventor, who is regarded
as an Edison in hiB own branch of
study. Mr. Brunton is a Scotchman
by birth, and at one time whb consulting engineer at the famous Rio
Tinto copper mines in Spain, where
for thousands of years mining has
been carried on. Tradition has it
that the Kio Tinto mines supplied
the copper for King Solomon's Tern
pie. So much has been taken trom
the mines, said Mr. Brunton, in 1 is
evidence, that the trains i ow fellow
one another round In a great excava-
ln     lei.-hing

tunnel  per  month.  Nine hundred  feet J tion rojl(,s ,„ di;lmeter

Mr. Burton, who is the inventor of
the Brunton compass and over a
score of other inventions produced in
court iu making his calculations hiB
lutest invention, a rule for computing logarithms by lightning method.
Being unable to have the delicate
rule manufactured satisfactorily in
the United States, Mr. Vrunton
shortly before the outbreak of war
sent the models to Germany for a
test manufacture, and has not heard
of them since.
Mr.  Andrew    F.    Woolley, engineer

dozen  different    points.   It  ulso      enables gangs to be quickly shitted from
one section to another when blasting
is in  progress, and is recognized as a
great economy in tunnel construction
What Profits Are Alleged.
According  to  the  evidence    of    Mr.
John Mcllwee he started his men   to
work   in the  pioneer bore last   May.
His profits for the first month      wus
about J3000, for the month of   June

A Better Remedy
Than Nasty Salts
Few people like to take physic, e>3-
pecially salts, because they are so
disagreeable to take and because of
the griping and pains they cause.
Rexall Orderlies enable you to take
