Unanimous for Conservative Candidate — T. Kilpatrick Chairman
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister ot
public works is the candidate of the
Conservatives ol Kevelstoke for the
approaching provincial elections. His
was the only name placed before the
nominating convention on Monday
evening, and the enthusiasm with
which his candidature was unanimously adopted gave strikiug evid-
dence ot the satisfaction which Conservatives feel with his services and
of their determination that the result of the elections shall make him
oncrf more the representative of Revelstoke in the legislature and the
The meeting was a remarkable tribute to the popularity of the minister of public works and to the fighting spirit of the Conservatives of
the city. Although no intimaOion. that
the meeting would be open to any but
accredited delegates had been given
Conservatives from every direction
thronged to the Star theatre, determined to show their loyalty to their
popular representative, and when the
chair' was taken by T. Kilpatrick
every seat in the theatre was occupied aud many were standing at the
back of thc hall.'Mr. Taylor's name
was received with loud applause, and
with vigorous cheers at the eonclu-
eion of the meeting and the speeches
that followed the nomination breath-
■ed a spirit of "unity and an enthusiastic determination to give Hon.
Thomas Taylor the largest majority
of any candidate in the province.
Kvery part of the constituency was
represented and the speakers declared
that their districts were heart and
soul with the McBride government
and with 'its candidate for RevelBtoke.
On the motion of A.E. Kincaid seconded by Russell Evans, T. Kilpatrick was voted to the chair and J.E.
Paulding of Craigellachie was appointed secretary. Mr. Kilpatrick announced that the purpose of the meeting was to select a Conservative
standard binrer for Revelstoke con-
Btituency amd called tor nominations.
J. H. Armstrong said that he had
nominated Mr. Taylor last time and
he would do the same this time. He
was seconded by W.R. Reid of Arrowhead, Mr. Taylor's name ;being received  with  hearty, cheers.
No other nomination was made and
the entire meeting showed its enthusiastic endorsation of Mr. Taylor's candidature and a messenger
was sent to inform Mr. Taylor ot the
action taken byV thc convention.
Hon.  Thomas Taylor.
Mr. Taylor's entry to the thentrc
was greeted with hearty applause.
He thanked the convention for the
nomination and for the confidence it
had expressed In him. This was the
eighth time that he had received tho
nomination of the Conservatives of
Revelstoke, . Last time his election
had been unanimous. It was a great
gratification to him after so many
years >service to dnce more receive
the unanimous endorsation of the
Conservatives. He knew that they
would not (orget the premier of
British Columbia who was proved
and trted and who had stood liy the
province In ItB time of stress. At
the polls he believed it would he

lie was sure that at a time like thiB
the in■•'tnicr WOllld not leave the province of Iinti'.li Columbia. Now wart
the  time Ihat   the    province  especially
needed him and he would remain so
lonif as he was needed. There would
be ample opportunity* lor discussion
of policies, during the campaign and
for the refutation of criticism. Much
of the criticism was unreasonable.
Mr. Brewster's manifesto was a ridiculous document. .It contained nothing but abuse, nothing constructive.
It was full of destruction and calumny. He did not believe that the people would take it as an indication
that the i government should be turned out of office. Locally he understood that some of the railroad men
were \dissatished with the income tax.
The income tax law had not been
passed hy the present administration.
It was ia existence hefore he entered
politics l'i years ago. The government was not responsible for passing
the act. The tax originally was two
per cent on incomes above $100*1.
The present government had reduced
the tax to li per cent, and had given,
a special exemption of s50O lor railroad men. If the tax Was originally
unjust it was not the fault of the
present administration which had
tried to make it fair.
Thc government, said Mr. Taylor,
had spent 81,200,000 in tbe neighborhood of Revelstoke in the past six
and one half years. He did not claim
that Revelstoke had received better
consideration than any other riding,
but he did claim that he had dealt
fairly with Revelstoke and with the
province. He believed that the voice
of the people would support him so
long as he dealt fairly with the people. There was substantial revenue
behind the Revelstoke district which
was almost on a par with the expenditure. Many new sections were
now opening up which would call lor
attention but so far as he could he
would represent Revelstoke fairly and
squarely. He thanked his good
friends for their confidence ln him
and hoped to represent them as
honestly in the future as he had tried
to do in the past.
Thomas  Kilpatrick
While awaiting Mr. Taylor's arrival
the meeting was addressed by Thomas Kilpatrick who expressed his
great pleasure at the action which
had /been taken, lf any member was
deserving of renomination it was
Hon. Thomas Taylor. No other • riding had benefitted to greater extent
from tbe services of its representative. When they reviewed his work
first as a private member and then
as a cabinet minister they found him
deserving of confidence. Bridges,
roads, trails and schools hud been
built. They were much needed und
had been beneficial to thc opening of
the country. He believed tliat the
legislation providing for loauB to
settlers would be most important to
the district. In the past the district had been handicapped by the reserve in the railway belt, but now
there would be a good opportunity to
clear land. It was said by the Liberals that the Conservatives had stolen
their platform. The government had
commenced a couple of years ago and
had sent a agricultural commission
to New Zealand. Australia and
Bhirope and the agricultural bill was
| the result so he did not sec how they
'could bc accused of stealing the
Liberal platform. S.S. Tayloi. a pro
niinent Liberal lawyer bad pointed
out thnt the Liberals had no policy
and the Sun now said that the main
features of the Liberal policy would
bo disclosed before the election. The

Conservative Association
James Mclntyre, president of the
Revelstoke Conservative association,
Las received notification from it. f.
Green, member for Kootenay that he
has succeeded in securing the eame
appropriation as last year for the
extension of the automobile road in
the Revelstoke park. Mr. Green states
that the work on tin- road construction will continue ,.s usual this summer.
"I am delighted with the news,"
said Mr. Mclntyre, 'und 1 think thut
everyone in Revelstoke will be equally pleased ami will give Mr. Green
credit      for     having       accomplished
splendid work for Revel<stoke, At
tlie present time when, owing to tbo
war, tbe government is reducing expenditures so far as possible it
is particularly gratifying to know
that Mr. i.reen baa succeeded in securing the appropriation necessary
for the continuation of the work. It
will mean much to Revelstoke and
will relieve the minds of those who
hardly dared to hope that under present conditions the progress of tho
weer': would '.e continued this year."
Mr. Mclntyre intends to send a latter i if hearty thanks of Mr. Green for
his successful  efforts
Hon Thomas Taylor,  minister of  public works, who on Monday even-
iii'.-  wi's unanimously chosen as Conservative  candidate     for      Revelstoke

cume to Donald end moved to Reytlstoke in LS03, (Mi March 1:;, 1900 he
! was first nominated as a candidate  for th" ■legislature. At that time the
government was not conducted on part; lines and Mr. Taylor was the
i tirst provincial  Conservative candidate nominated   in    British Columbia.
He was elected on June 9, 1900 and bai ever since been a member of the
j  legislature,   He  became .,  minister in   the  McBride     cabinet  in  December,

Mr. Taylor and he believed that both

Revelstoke need not be afraid of the
Eagle river valley, Mr. Kinucane assured the audience. They intended to
give Mr. Tuylor the biggest majority ever obtained thcre.
Vi. H. Ueid
\\ . H Reid of Arrowhead said that
he had supported Mr. Taylor ever
since he bad been a member and he
intended to continue to do so. He
believed that Kevelstoke obtained
more than it was entitled to from
the government and he thought that
its ritizens showed poor appreciation
of Mr. Taylor's services in nominating a candidate to oppose Aim.
When  the road to Arrowhead  was op
'en he expected that all the people of
] Revelstoke would come there to live
in summer, and they intended to have
a bridge, summer hotel and other attractions.

Mr. Taylor. In his district they   had

by   the   government  while  the   Liber
als  had  done      nothing.     The south
would  solidly support  Mr.  Taylor.
Mr.   Roberts of  Malakwa  expressed

Hurt Munro's letter continues us
lollows telling of the arrival ol the

Tonight there is a whale of a concert In the big dining saloon aft.
This is given by the 'JJrd |in aid of
the Ancient Mariners Home in Liverpool. I stayed for half of the program, but the air became so thick
that I quit in favor of a trip through
the engine room und stoke hold
both of which were much less crowded and less Binoky than the concert
ball. Looking at the ungineers ol
which ahout six were constantly
hovering uroulxl the monster twin
turbine engines polishing here and
thcre with a handful of greasy waste
they appeared to be about a foot and
a half tall and it was necessary for
them to dumb live tlights of iron
steps to work from top to bottom of
the huge steam chests. In the stoke
hold I found six of thc hardest working men I have ever seen an 1 Just to
watch them feeding the dusky diamonds '.nto the roaring mouths af the
various boilers with teaspoons aqout
two feet ncros? the capacity end, gave
mc an awful tired feeling across the
small of my back. Of course they
only work short Bliilts of four hours
each twice a dny with eight hours ofl
between each, but during that time
they do more actual work than most
of us do in a week.
We had an awful kickup at noon
over the grub or rather the ubsenee
of it, but the orderly oflicer of the
day didn't get around In time to
hear the noise as no doubt he had
beard from his predecessor of yesterday what to expect. However tonight we had plenty to eat and we
forgot our troubles [or the space of
U"  minutes while stowing it away.
Wednesday evening, 7 o'clock,
March 3, We had the best day of the
trip today. Thc weather has been
gloriously tine with hardly a breeze
at all. At noon the log showed 199
miles for thc past twtfity-four hours
and the chart showed our position to
be nearly due south of Queenstown,
Ireland. Our course has-been changed
a little to the north this afternoon
and a few minutes ago I um sure I
saw a light-house flash 'light almost 'lead ahead. About live o'clock
the old Mcgantic which so fur has
bcel the last boat in the line showed
us what she could do by passing us
easily and at the same time the
Heeex   cut   away  to    port      and     the
Aderland followed her. Now we    are
sailing two abreast and about half a
mile  apart,   It  is     rumoured  aboard
that   we are to  pick  up a section     o[

WEDNESDAY,  MARCH  83.,  1915
The Conservative convention i>n
Monday evening was a remarkable
evidence of appreciation by the pv>-
pie of the Revelstoke distri.t of the
services rendered by Hon. Thomas
Taylor to the constituency and to
the province
The gathering was a spontaneous
tribute, the significance ot which is
unmistakable, No announcement was
made tbat the meeting would be open to the public, and it was gam-rally believed tbat it was intended exclusively as a convention ol tbc delegates nominated b> the various districts of tin' constituency to select a
candidate in the Conservative interest ior the next provincial election.
But notwithstanding, mure Conservatives assembled than were aide to
find seats In the Stai theatre, all
eager to express their appreciation ol
Mr. Taylor's Bervlces and their satis
faction at the unanimous nomination
so enthusiastically accorded to him.
It waa a demonstration such as is
rarely exhibited, and it cannot lall
to be intensely gratifying to the mln
'ister of pul lie works -that his long
p Utica] career, first as a private
member, and afterwards as a minist
er of the crown, should be so wan".

Many in Revelstoke have expressed
doubt as to whether, under the ex-
traordlnary financial conditions caused by the war, the Dominion government would feel instilled in making
an appropriation this year for the
continuation ol the construction of
the automobile road on Mount Re
velstoke. That doubt has now been
dispelled and the announcement of
Mr. R.F. Green that, an appropriation has been mude for work this
slimmer equal tt. that ot last year,
wil give genuine satisfaction. The
immediate continuation of a project
in which Revelstoke takes an ex-
ceptional interest, and wb'ieh is of
vital importance to the prosperity of
the city, is now assured, and there
will bc few who will begrudge to Mr.
Green the credit and gratitude which
his successful ertorts on behalf, il the
city  deserve.
lt cannot be supposed that the
grant toward the work was obtained
without difficulty. The government,
as is well known, is curtailing expenditures upon public works owing to
the exceptional financial Bltuatlon,
and the Indlusioti of an appropriation for Uk road e iual to that ol
last year ran only have been obtained as the result of unremitting advocacy ol the project. Had Revelstoke been represented at the present
time by a member less 'insistent than
Mr. Green or by one whose representations have less weight with the government it is highly . iprobable that
so welcome an announcement as that
of Mr. Green to the president of the

The Socialists of Nelson riding at
a convention held last Saturday in
Miners'[Union hall decided to enter, a
candidate In the coming provincial
elections, but have not ub yct announced who their standard bearer
will be. Ai committee was appointed
to make further arrangements and
to canvass the riding.
At a large and enthusiastic gathering of the Liberals and other op-
ponents of the McBride administration held in Greenwood, Dr. J. D
MacLean was unanimously selected

an enthusiastic convention on Thursdaj at Nelson, unanimously renominated James H. Schoficld as their

which the people of thc riding felt in
Mr.  Schofield.

I for Yale constituency, Alexander Lucas was nominated" by John Mc-
Ra ■ of Agassiz and seconded by Mr.
A. Austin of Ashcroft. There was no
other nomination and as the chair
man announced the results Mr. Lucas
came forward, and was received with
vociferous applause by  the delegates.
A in lotlng of the Rossland Liberal
association took place last Wednesday, about fiO members being present. Quite a discussion about the
Libel al platform took place bub it
Was finally decided that all would
give their support to the Liberal
platform in its entirety. The names
placed before the convention for nomination were E.S.H. Winn, T. Bmble-
ton D. McDonell and VV. D. Wilison.
Messrs. Winn. Embleton and McDonell declined the nomination in favor
.f Mr. Wil'lson. Tha nomination of Mr.
Wilison as candidate was then unanimously carried.
At  the    Conservative      convention
held at Greenwood on Tuesday     the
following were proposed as candidates
for the coming election: I.H.  Hallett
W.  Fleming, F.  McLaine   nnd   .1. R.

Calgary News Telegram: Fourteen or fifteen years ago, Capt
Dcane, superintendent of the Northwest Mounted Police, scurried all over Calgary picking up Iriends and
acquaintances and driving them down
to the barracks that they might see
the first dandelion grown in th'is
part of Alberta. Today there arc
countless millions of dandelions in
Calgary and Alberta, and although,
for some foolish re.is.in, it is noi
classed among the noxious weeds, it
is one of the greatest nuisances In
the city and in tbe province, and it.
will be a far greater curse to owners
t,l gardens and lawns, ns it nourishes
here more prolificacy than In any
other part of the known world. The
dandelion, with other weeds, was
brought here in grass seed, and now
that we have It we shall have to
fight vigorously if wc are to keep it
within bounds. Rome sections of the
city, notably Mount Royal, bave escaped this pest, but it is on its way,
and will soon be on the job In all its
regalia. The most effective means to
combat the dandelion is to promote
the Vacant  Lots Garden scheme.
Cranbrook Herald: The decision ot
the Lethbridge board of trade to
change thc name of thc Belly river
will meet with approval, at least by
the editor of this paper. Some e'ight
years ago, when "Old Man" Simpson
started the Lethbridge Herald, the
present editor of thc Cranbrook Herald, then a common printer drawing
a sulary of %^2^ per, but now an editor getting a whole lot Icbs, went tn
Lethbridge to help establish the
plant. On the first Sunday afternoon,
while stroll'ing around the then almost unknown burg, the printer eventually found himself down at the
river. Being anxious to lenrn something of the place, he asked a young
lady, who was leading a little child
by the hand, what thc name of the
river might I.e. The young lady|colored up and said, somewhat bashfully:
"I know but I don't like to tell you."
This seemed strange, but the answer
came in a short while, for after the
young lady had gone on about fifty
yards she turned and, putting her
hands up to ber month as if to guard
her words so that no one else might
hear them, said: "Mister, the name
of that ri\er is the "Belly river."
And with that she made a hiiRty retreat. Ever since that time we have
been firmly convinced that the Belly
river should not he paraded before
the genera) public, at least not in
that seemingly naked style. Change
it, please.  It surely needs fixing.

Great interest has been shown by

Sir Kdward'N Wife Was Killed While
Out Driving.
Sir Edward Grey, the British Foreign Minister, is not one of those
statesmen who lindr, any relief from
the cares of his great office in social
life. Mr. Gladstone was a great diner-out aud loved the theatre. He wa«
in a box in a theatre when news ol
Gordon's death was brought to him.
Sir Edward Grey is never out of his
own home when not in his office during the working days of the week.
But at the end of the week, the
•port-sacred week-end, he is always
to be found at a little Iron cottage
he has built lor himself by the side
of the stream where he may Indulge
: ln his favorite pastime of fishing
without the voices that would break
upon  his solitude.
Tbe deith of his wife a few weeks
1 after he had heen appointed to his
high office left him one of the loneliest and most solitary men ln the
world. There were, unhappily, no
children born during those yearB of
perfect comradeship aud love, and
when Lady Grey died he seemed to
close forever the doors of his hearl
to all who would intrude as he kept
tryst  with memory.
The circumstances of Lady Grey's
death were to him a tragedy beyond
even the losing of her. She was
driving in the park on his estate in
Northumberland, when the horses
got out of hand and bolted, and she
was dashed agalns. a *ree. Sir Edward happened to be in London on
state affairs at the time, and when
the news reached him he rushed to
Northumberland through the night
on a special train only to find her
unconscious, in which stale she remained for two days, when she died.
He gave tt out that he never wished
any reference made to it and returned to London, steeled against, all the
lights and glamor of social life which
would now be unbearable without
her, and sought in the intenseat application to his duties distraction
that should preserve hL poise and
his sanity.
For Lady Grey was one of those
remarkable women who, while possessing all the charms and fascinations of social gifts, yet had a brain
of unusual aptitude for politics and
affairs, so that she was in very
truth his other self. At times of
general election she and be would
start at different ends of bis constituency, so that tbere would be two
meetings iu every place, one addressed by each of them, and it is
difficult to say which meeting was
the more popular.

as we all know, struck by a heavy
storm, which completed the work of
our own gallant seamen.
Tha soldiers who fought so bravely under the leadership of Marlborough at Blenheim In the year 1704
had to suffer the misery of successive
downpours after their brilliant victory.
Marlborough was anxious to follow up IiIb victory without delay, but
his men wore so worn by tho fatigue
of the battle and the discomforts
caused by heavy rains and the contingencies of warfare that he waa
unable to push on for several days.
On June 1 Gth. 1815, the British
defeated the French at Quatre BraB,
and Napoleon worsted the wily
Blucher at Llgny, both within measurable distance of Waterloo. The
heavy rains which followed these engagements made the clayey soil almost impossible for cavalry manoeuvres at Waterloo (fought on June
18th), and so crippled the tactics of
Napoleon and greatly assisted those
of the Duke of Wellington. The victory would have been gained in any
case, but experts are of opinion that
the rain was an ally of some value.
The explanation of lhe rain ls comparatively simple, and has been
made use of for the benefit of agriculture in various parts of the world.
The aimosphere is laden with moisture, a concussion caused by loud
reports or noises will often burst the
clouds, with the natural result that
the drops of water fall to the earth.
This has been practically tested when
farmers have been groaning over tho
rainfall by causing cannon to be discharged at altitudes varying with
the locality. When, however, the
discharge is continuous, as In battle,
it Is obviously more effective.
In Times of War.
"When England is at war, the Empire is at war."
The phrase trips lightly off the
tongue. Yet how few amongst those
who use lt stop to consider Its full
More than one-fifth of the land
surface of the globe, and above one-
fifth of Its population—21 per cent.
and 2 2 per cent, respectively, to be
precise—are included ln this Emplr-
of ours. The actual area is aboul
12.000,000 square miles, and its
population is. approximately, 400,-
000.000. All these vast, far-flung territories, every single one of thes-
hundreds of millions of people, are
open w attack once Great Britain
goes to war.
The sea frontiers of the Empire,
along which the enemy's warships
are able to sail, and .pon which, of
course, it la possible for them to de-
Bcend, extend tit;..",7;; miles—considerably more than twice the circumference of the globe. The land frontiers, equally vulnerable to the enemy's armies, are 29.47d ml

An apparatus which may prove of
great value in coal mines has been Invented recently by a resident of Lon-
i don, Eng., according to Deputy Con-
i buI General  Ripley  Wilson.
The invention, whirh ls called the
Williams fire damp indicator, or me-
I thanometer, Is a detector of the dangerous hydrocarbon fire damp, a gas
responsible for many serlouB explosions in coal mines. The apparatus
is made in two parts. One part Is a
very sensitive instrument which responds quickly when fire damp Is
present; the other part Is a dial Indicator which shows the exact percentage of methane in the atmosphere
The detector and indicator may he
placed side by side, enabling the miners themselves to know by what percentage of fire damp they are surrounded, or the indicator may be
placed at any convenient centre. The
connection between the two parts of
the instrument is electric By either
one of these methods a series of Instruments posted in various parts of
the workinL'p forms a safeguard hlth-

[according to the dictionary] is—PROSPERITY.
Success in business is not an accident, it follows
certain well-defined rules. We enumerate three
that are essential.
[1] QUALITY—Your goods must be good,
must give satisfaction in use, be dependable, able to stand any fair test. Not
occasionally but all the time.
[2] VALUE—Your goods must be the best
obtainable for the money. Not the value
of circumstances, nor of competition, but
the most for your customer's moneyALL
the time.
[3) PUBLICITY — Quality and value are
something worth talking about. Don't
hide your light under a bushel nor cloak
your goods with the silence that spells
disaster. Forget to talk and the public
will forget to buy. Talk simply and
steadily—talk ALL the time—and prosperity will follow by the rule of three. rAGB EIGHT

In the second half the Tigers seem
ed to "come to" and they kept the
1'irates busy all the way. There was
not much chance for long combinations as the checking was very, close
almost all the time, but in the loose j
periods the towards managed to get
a clear free shot and they scored almost every one. v
The Piratcp divided up the score
evenly betweeu them, in this half,
Bruce, McLeod, Burridge and New-
some each scoring one. For thc Tigers, ('aider netted three, Little two,
t nd Daniels. Burnett nnd Corley one
when a number of new brunches were
