Teachers' Convention
Will Attract Attention of Visitors by Train—Holds
Huge Staff
The foundation has beeu laid for
the hugh snowman now being constructed on the bench neur the station uuder the supervision of William Hornell, and it is expected that
the statue in snow will be completed
by the beginning of next week.
The snow-man will stand on a
pedestal 15 feet Square and four feet
high while the figure itself will be '217),
feet in height. The modelling is being performed by C.P. Tweedtile.
The official unveiling of the snowman will be attended by appropriate
ceremonies which will include a big

will lie an electric torch and it will
be a conspicuous feature of the landscape to all arriving in the city by
train. Mr. Hornell believes thnt it
will be a unique advertisement for

warmly  supported.
Gas Producer Has Been Used
—Cannot Repair Racks

"The failure of the light on Satur
day was caused by wood getting into the turbine gates" says Mayor W.
A,. Foote, who desires to keep the
public informed as to conditions at
the power plant In fulfilment of the
policy advocated by him previous to
his election. "Thc wood," continued
Hia Worship "broke the gear, but In
anticipation of such un accident spar.-
parts were on hand and the break

"The gus producing pliant has been

i i"The new*)machinery was shipped on
December 4, and should arrive shortly, When it is installed tad tbe
racks replaced at the intake 1 expect
that the plant will work satisfactorily and thnt Revelstoke will have a
suitable  lighting system."
I Owing to a mishap to the
city power plant candles and
lamps made their re-appearance in
the storfe windows and homes of the
city on Saturday evening. With the
aid of the auxiliary plant light f..r
the houses was obtained later in the
evening. On Sunday night the streets
and homes were again in darkness
and services at the churches were
conducted with the aid of oil lamps.
On Monday evening light wus again
supplied for domestic purposes. Yesterday the power service was again
v.eak and intermittant. but the lights
were in  fifll operation  last night.
