As a matter of course the houses

MAYOR TODAY
Roads in Clearview Debated by City Council
The city council last night passed
a bylaw authorising the payment of
iaM as the mayor's salary for
current year. Aid. Bourne was iu
Ihe chair and by a resolution ol the'
council was appointed acting mayor
during  the absence of  Mayor Foote.
Aid Smythe brought up the question of the condition of the cemetery. It was decided to have the long
tirass cut, the aldermen being of the
opinion that the cemetery was otherwise in better condition than in
any previous year.
Aid. Smythe asked who gave authority for the building of roads in
Clearview on private property.
Aid. Bourne replied that the ar-
rangement wns made somewhere in
the city hall.
Aid Mackenrot said that it was
arrangad that a ouple ol prisoners
bhould make a road to enable teams
to turn round, but more had been
done.
Aid.  Smythe said that the   money

verse writers of tbe rest of the world
were holding ii|i to ridicule the sport-
loving Englishman, who was sup-
Iiosed to be refusing to shoulder a
gun in defence of his hearth and
borne, Great Britain was rapidly and
thoroughly building up her own big
"steam roller."
When it came to moving the few
troops to France extraordinary precautions were taken to mislead the
spies. The regiments were not all
Iranspcrted from Soutuumpton to
Havre. Instead they were shipped
from what were really out-of-the-way
end inconvenient ports—Bristol, Av-
onraouth, Cardiff, Swansea and Barrow, for example—to French ports as
far as St. MalO, Brest and even Bor-
deaux on the west coast and Marseilles on the Mediterranean. Troop
trains were moved at night with
drawn blinds. Not even the officers
were aware of their ultimate destination—whether it was to be France,
Egypt, India ol the Dardanelles. The
engine drivers were changed every
twenty miles or so and the captains
of the troop ships received their final instructions by wireless after they
lad put to sea.

[   LOflJ DISTANCE TELEPHONE Ji,
The completion of the Dominion
government telephone line connecting
Revelstoke with the Okanagan and
western telephone systems will he of
E ibstantial benefit, to the business
interests of the city, and will be a
much appreciated convenience to all
residing in the districts through
■which the line will |iass, and Mr. It.
F. Green's announcement that the
completion of the line may be ex
pected this year will give much
satisfaction. The fertile valleys to
the west of Revelstoke are being Bet
tied by prosjierous farmers. Natural
conditions should make them customers of Revelstoke merchants and
providers of much of the produce con-
Bumed in the city. The completion ol
the telephone line will do much to
stimulate this interchange ol commodities. It will facilitate the pur
chase of goods in Revelstoke and the
marketing of the farmer's products
and will be no small factor in building up for the city the tributarj
cultural ji ipulation on which its
future prosperity hugely depends.

AT  THE  THEATRES
SPRAY THE COWS
A sudden falling off in the milk
supply at this time of year is often
caused by Hies. Cows must be cuu-
ii'iited, if they give their full yield,
and if they have to fisjlit flies all day
they ure sure to show the result of
their annoyance at  milking time.
The best way to light Hies is with
ii spray pump and some suitable preparation. A carbolic acid or kerosene solutl ii is etlectike, and is not
difficult to apply to cattle. It is often tafer to buy some good preparation than to try to mix it yourself.
["here is some dan er that the car-
liolh acid i c ial t ar solution may

will be burned, or so weak that they

The highest paid director of motion
pictures in the world is D.W. Grittithij
who is employed by the Mutual Film
Corporation at a salary of $100,000 a
year. He gets it because he is worth
it, and has the reputation for having
produced the only motion picture for
which $2.00 bas been charged for
orchestra seats, viz. "The Birth of a
Nation," now in its fourth mouth at
the Liberty theatre, New York. Mr.
Griffiths is in many ways responsible
for the "Master pictures" now being
produced by the Mutual Film Cor-
poration, and shown at the 'Rex'
theatre here, and bas already directed a number of them himself. He
has long recognised the demand of
; he public for "better motion pictures" and the results of his efforts
lave proved the correctness of his
theory. The Master Picture for tonight at the Rex is "Enoch Arden,"
irom Tennyson's famous poem, and
for next week "The Victim" featuring  Ma''   Marsh.      D.W.  Griffith's pet

The  next   two   nights   I was   out   on
Mstenln • pat ■ ■    md the second even
mi' I had a   m •:l   Intoresi Ing    t ime
i .-pint inr   the   wire  which   was  broken
that communicates with the trench.
J'hey had broken it that afternoon
with a shell of which more
anon and as the break in the wire
was directly in front of the break in
Ihe trench and as they usually turn
a machine gun on theBe breaks and
I hen after night-fall they let go a
few rounds every once in a while to
try and catch a working party Axing them up, I felt none too happy.
I ljelieve if they had just started u
nachine gun, they would not have
needed to hit me I would have just
expired anyway.
Regarding that shell, I was just
getting Blipper for myself and my
two mates Kidner and Harold Bur-
;e3s, and had tea boiling on a little
fire bucket when they dropped a
'hell just behind ns, the first close
tine we had had at that particular
point.
We were laugh'n? about, it and
joshing when another landed in
front and then a bunch of dirt fell
on te.p of ns. We were standing by
the st ive, six of us and another
right behind us on sentry duty. He
was sitting on a box looking through
a periscope and n-aly tn tront of
bim there was a double steel plate belonging to a machine gun position.
He said, "I guess I had better put
this periscope away or we will get it
broken," and be stepped off the tiring
platform to do it. The next second
a shell struck thc front of the parapet
and it must have h.t fair on tbis
plate I spoke of, for one was split
as if it was cut with shears and the
other was cracked ris;ht across and
I could see the mark where it hit.
lt took in about five feet of parapet
and we were covered with dirt and a
couple of the boys were hit witb
bags, but we did not have a single
casualty. The nose ol the shell was
there in about five pieces, and it lay
just about in the centre of the seven
of   US.
It is amusing to see the way a man
will lose his head for a few minutes
and there were one or two that I
believe would have run up Jacob's
ladder had it bpen there. We got our
equipment out of the dirt and start-
ul to clean up the mess. My treasured tea was a mass of mud. We got
n bunch of new bags and filled them
out of the mess ready to rebuild
egain, when it got dark and we were
;ust about finished. Si une of them
were filling sacks and piling them and
! was getting a place ready to build
i n when we :-ot started, when bingo
another one took nnother chunk of
< he parnet on' ind split the sand
bags we had just filled. It scrntcbed
one man's face nnd another man's
l and nnd that was all that happened
again. We had a number of the boys
down from another part of the trench
lookine at the damage done by the
first shell ,when the second one landed. I mieM remark that they did not
temnin. We were relieved that night
so did not have to repair the trench,
but it wns directly in front of that,
that   I had to repair the wire.
While we were there I had fourteen
letters, the tirst I had got for two
weeks, anil f hive had one from the
...•iris since then. There was one from
'". in the bunch and I was sure sur-
irls d t.< hear about the bunch that

W. M. Lawrence believed that Mr.
Green waB doing everything he could
and the thing to do was to strengthen his hand.
"Find out where the hitch is and
go after it," said Mr. McRae.
Mr. Howson thought that there
wus no hope of an appropriation for
the road in the near future. Mr.
Green should be informed tbat all associations were united. This was the
only hope of getting the road completed. *~
A committee consisting of W. M.

Hume was appointed to draft a telegram to Mr. Green.
The following telegram was sent:

Inasmuch as no progress has been
made regarding the interned camp
here, bourd of trade at meeting tonight strongly protest against this

Prospector Says War Has Revived Mining Interest in
Many Gamps
With twenty-one British Columbia
miners' licenses, Ave from New Zealand, three from the latter provinces
to prospect Indian reserves, George
Goldsmith is in Vancouver. The two
decades or more which he has spent
in this province have been chiefly to
the Lardo, Slocan and Kootenay districts.
"There has been a wonderful revival of interest in mining throughout the whole of the Slocan, Lardo
and Kootenay," said Mr, GoldBmith.
"The hii;h price of most of tbe minerals caused by the war has resulted
in opening up propertiee which for
years have lain dormant. American
capital is especially prominent in
this activity and big profits are already being made by our cousins
across the line arising from the war's
demands  for  minerals."
Mr. Goldsmith has bonded the
Scout group of six claims In' the Fish j
<lreek district to Ametican capital-|
ists, and has also turned over to i
them tbe Big Showing group in the j
same district, which is owned by the
Leasj> interests of Cranbrook, but
which he controls under option. He
was the original locator of both properties but sold out bis interests in
the latter some years ago, realising
J10,0"i; on the deal. With this money
he wandered away from British Columbia, went through the Cobalt,
porcupine and' Guginda countries,
eventually making a trip out over the
snow from James Bay on snowshoes
and an empty stomach. He' says that
while there are some great showings
of high-grade silvei ore in the Porcupine and Cobalt districts they are
confined to a small area, and nothing looks so good to him for mining
today as British Columbia.
The Scout property which Mr.
Goldsmith has bonded, shows some
of the highest grade ore in the province. The black sulphurets und carbonates from (300 to $400 per ton in
gold and fl03 in silver.'The property
has heen opened up to a certain efl-
tent, $10,000 having oeen expended in
this direction, and Mr. Goldsmith is
now (raiting tor a representative of
the bonders to meet him here, the
two expecting to outline a plan for
future  development.
in hundreds of thousands of cases
men and women regard death with
less fear today than they regarded
some little fleeting pain in tooth or
chest or stomach only ten months
ago. It looks as though men were j
governed, after all, to some degree
by the sense of proportion. They feel
that in a sea of deaths to be but
another wave is an accident such as
is hajipening, or may happen to
everymen is all in the day's work rather than a towering tragedy. Many
people have always felt that to die
in a crowd is far less terrible than
to die alone. We have heard people
confessing their horror of death by
drowning, but adding that they
would not hate it so exceedingly if it
happened in the course of some great
accident when other people were
drowning too. This may seem the I
extreme of selfishness—this desire of
company in death. But we believe it
is a common emotion, and it does
not really involve so much selfishness
ns appears on the surface. Partly it
comes from the feeling that it is easier to do things in crowds than alone.
With others whose lives have a
dramatic cast there is also the sense
that they would have a spur to line
action if there were spectators. They
would have no time for fear in their
passion, in the common phrase, t.i
play the game to the last. Psychologists have in recent yeurs studied
what, are called group-emotions with
particular attention: they have .'een ,
in them the origin of religion and the i
arts. Certainly the course of .kery
e wnr shows us how group-tearlessn.-ss
| may he born. Individuals who may
' have been capable of all sorts of
timidity in time of peace become
hound together in a league of rour-
age in time of war. If death were
: not the common lot of the race, but i
1 all except a few of us A-ere immortal, (
1 how much more terrible would a
man's death seem! Even then, we
have no doubt many men would be
found willing to give their lives for
i their country if it were demanded of
them. But if a scapegoat were re-
' quired for a nation, would two or
I three million men offer themselves for
I the lonely horror? It may be that
they would, but we doubt it. To be
i the only man leaving this beauty of
! the earth would seem a tragedy far
beyond dying in a lar.-e battle. Even
in the world as it is the majority of
men hesitate at first before deciding
to give up everything for their
country. It is the more adventurous
spirits that begin the march, and
\ then, one by one, ten by ten, hund-
ri'il by hundred, thousand by thousand,  the others are drawn  Into     the
' ranks as by  some  inevitable  fascina-
l)n the Biir Showing the values are _,
.,          ,    j             ...         ,      ..      'ion. There is a contagion of courage
mostly  in  lead, and    this makes the!        ,.
ore desirable   to   the    lead   smelters
for     its    fluxing      jualities.        This
ore as  a  rule assays about  85      per
age,' This, however, does not mean
that men are not immensely bravar
than usual. It means only tbat they
are not superhumatily brave. And ytt
each of us becomes more and more
certain every day that without something like superhuman bravery he can
never be free. The spirit will still be
in a measure the slave of the body
while we are capable of fear. The
dream in our hearts is somehow, to
break througb the last barrier of
fear—to come out, aB someone has
said, on the other side of fear. The
uselessness of the fear of death is as
apparent to us as the sun in tbc sky.
Its ignobleness is a thing that haunts
all who are subject to it. Whether
the love of death as thc deliverer in
the spirit of Walt. Whitman is a pas-
rion to be cultivated may be doubted.
Those who have scorned deathi most,
as the great gentlemen of the Renaissance did, saw it none tbe less
as the destroyer of the beauty of
men's bodies and of the light ot the
world as the common man knows it.
To the religious mind, which accejits
the vision of a real and populated
'olid happier than this beyond the
grave, death is no doubt the deliverer. But even to most religious men
this world has gathered ahout it all
t he clearness of home: death, at its
hest, is an exile, a desertion. They
have the bravery to die; but their
bravery has the sadness of Hector's.
And yet, as with Hector, some instinct drives them to despise this
death of the body, to accept this
exile as more t'i be desired than safety and a man's own hearth and children. Christian, paean, and atheist
are at one in this. They feel that the
life of the body itself can be fully enjoyed only when the fear of those
that kill the body has been utterly
overcome.

THK   HORSE
COLORING
It is found that there is a very
definite connection between the color
of horses and the frequency with
•vhich white markings occur. Thus
the latter are by far the most commonly accociated with tbe chestnut
color. And not only are they the
■irevalent in chestnut horses,
but it is also a well-known fact that
the markings are apt to be more ex-
tended in the case of this color than
in that of any other. Bay ranks next
In regard to the degree of frequency
with which white markings appear in
horses of this color, although it
comes a cood way behind chestnut in
this respect. Then follows brown.
while they are met with less frequently among black and roan horses.
rent,  lead  and  >t>7  in silver.
Mr. Goldsmith states that the
Heber an'i Criterion properties in
tne Cambourae district will soon be
working on a large scale under the
management of Nelson people who |
have recently secured control. There
nre two stamp mills now on tbe I
ground, each of ten stamps, and it
is the intention to build one mill of
much larger capacity.
On Poole Creek there has been a
rich strike. The ore is silver-lead,
and operations are being steadily i
prosecuted. The property belongs to
Messrs. Dr.'w ami Boyd, the latter
being the owner of Halcyon Hot
Bprlngs on Arrow Lake. The ore
roines out for shipment to Benton
station on the Upper Arrow Lake.
The Silver Cup mine, the famous
property of Trout Lake, has been
bonded to an American syndicate.
This is the property which In the
early days shipped so much high-
grade ore, When the bond was closed
i.iys Mr Goldsmith, the bonders
laughed at the development which
had heen done. This consisted of
shafts em top of a mountain, and the !
present holders are driving a tunnel |
which will tap the lead at a depth .if
at least 1000 f»ct, enabling them to
eliminate the rawhide haul and ship
both summer and winter. Thr \''
mine In the same district is also
again  working,
FEAR NOT THEM THAT

of the war has been the general diminution of the fear of death. It is only a comparatively few years since

WAR SIFTS OUT THE
INCOMPETENT LEADERS
South Africa, tliey used to say, is
the graveyard o£ military reputations. If for Bouth Africa we substitute the word "war" we shall arrive at a profounder truth, although
it is to say no more than to assert
that in iiniiieH and navies there are
fakers and four-tlushcrs, just us there
ace self-seekers and hypocrites in holy
orders. Looking at the army in time
of war we do not reudily understand,
perhaps, how it is that men without
capacity us leaders aud without
courage as soldiers obtain high commands. If we reflect that the average
array is at jieuce forty years to one
year at war it will lie plain that a
man with no more military spirit
than a chipmunk, if he has Influence
enough, 'or is clever enough at an-
swering questions, may rise to high
command, and as a general or a
field marshal receive such honors as
were showered upon Wellington; for
in time of peace, as in time of war,
promotions must le made, and one
nan placed above another.
The Acid Test.
In the racing world there are
dorses that have been described With
the name of "Morning Glories," after the (lower which blossoms like a
peony before the sun is up, and
.shrinks into a mere weed later in the
day. That is to S'ly, there are horses
that will dive wonderful trials in
training and absolutely quit when
they are called on to run for money.
80 there are generals who will ably
direct sham battles, and who ure
steeped in the science of war, who
will prove sad disappointments when
the blank cartridges are displaced by
iiigh explosive shells. In the present
-war there are many examples of men
who stood high in the military profession who have been unable to
stand the test of actual lighting, and
who have been retired, despite their
powerful influences. The most recent
and perhaps the most notable instance is that of Gen. Soukhomlinow,
the Russian minister of war, who hus
resigned. Though he was one of the
chief organizers of the Russian army,
he was blamed by the Grand Duke
Nicholas for the shortage of munitions.
Russian Retirements.
The minister had to retire, though
whether through incompetence upon
is part, or because the Grand Duke
wished to establish an "alibi," will
be known only after the war is over.
"In Russia another noted fighting gen-
ration has been relegated to a position of unimportance, and that, curiously enough, is ths one Russian
ceneral who made for himself a name
in the Russo-Japanese war, Rennen-
kampf. On the outbreak of the present war he was placed In command
of the First Army Corps, and inflicted a crushing defeat upon the Germans on the banks of the Niemen. A
jew weeks later, however, he failed
so arrive with his army at a time
ind place indicated by the Russian
generalissimo, and thus helped to
render futile one of the most Important Strategic moves in the Russian
campaign. He was relieved of his
DOmmand and sent back to Petrograd,
Yon Moltke Superseded.
Gen. Savinofl is reported to have
blown out his brains because he was
:ejiroached by the Grand Duke with
failure to carry out certain operations entrusted to him. The most
notable German general to fall lu
'he war is undoubtedly Field Marshal
Helmutb von Moltke, nephew of the
great von Moltke, who was chief of
the German ireneral start when the
■war broke out. It would be unfair to
assume tli.it the fault was von Mol-
tke's, and in the absence of an of-
ieial  statement  it is assumed     that
he was retired     because he disagreed
with tho Kaiser's plans for the capture of Calais,     at     whatever cost.
I Some critics assert that if the    Ger-
I mans had not  been bo determined to
' seize Calais,   carried   away   as   they
were from sound strategy by     their
desire to strike at    England,     their
drive on Paris would huve had better
1 results.  At any rate  von  Moltke     is
now in disgrace, and bis place     has
been taken by Gen.  von Falkenhayn,
a court favorite.
Joflre Cleans House.
On account of the rigid German
censorshi|) we do not know whether
other noted generals have been discredited, In France, however, it is
an open, secret that Joflre has retired hundreds of generals, and hus filled their places with men for the most
part older, but considerably abler.
In the early days of thc war French
attacks upon the Gem.an army were
almost uniformly unsuccessful, and
it became plain to Joflre, if to no
one else, that his army wus badly
led. Tbere followed his retreat, which
aided only when the Marne was
reached, but in the meantime it is
said that, li" hud been able to s ert
out bis lieutenants, nnd had decided
who would be retired and who would
be promoted. Before that deciding
battle was fought he had relieved
Bome ll.ii of his higher oflicers of
their commands, and had replaced
•hem, for the most part, with generals who had been retired on account
• J their age, The battle of the
Marne was fought, therefore, under
new generalshiji, and this battle
marked the turn of the tide. Since
tb'n Frrnc;- has made few changes.
The right men, we may assume, have
been tound.
INVISIBILITY OF
MILITARY UNIFORMS
In Trenches   JtritiHli   Khaki   Could   Not   Be
Improved L'pon—Soliliera Kemuiu I'nseen
"Another day it will, perhaps, ue
worth while to write a series of
of thumbnail sketches, having for
their object some suggestion of tne
different color-schemes of the various
phases and situations of the war,"
writes a correspondent of The Doily
Chronicle. "For, after the first purpose of an army, which is to put the
enemy out of action, the most important aim is not to be put out
of action itself. Consequently, the
object of every man, horse and machine is to sink into the background
as far as possible. It was probably
clear to Macaulay's schoolboy, even
before he became one, that such was
the purpose of khaki and that invisibility doubles the power that a
force possesses both of attack and
defence.
I havc myself motored up to a
long, high, somewhat crumbling,
ochreous brick wall running at right
angles to our direction, and I have
seen at a distance of less than 200
yards, the lower part of the wall suddenly form fours and march out Into
the road. Not a man in the car guessed that the lower half of the wall »as
half a battalion in khaki.
In the trenches the color used by
the English is us near perfection as
it well c.mld be. The man is, of
reitirse, practically invisible from the
level of the ground, and from an
aeroplane the more men that there
are in the trenches the less clearly
can the trenches he seen. On the other hand, we have learned that we
had been far too hasty in supposing
that in adopting khaki we showed so
much more prudence than our French
allies, who for the most part are
still uniformed In lon^ dark blue
eoats and loose crimson trousers of
a hue which is known technically as
"garance." For, although at certain
distances, I believe, khaki is far   less
conspicuous, warfare is rarely carried
on at those distances, while for some
purposes, especially night-work, the
French uniform has advantages which
we are obliged to imitate by a device of our own. With the approach
of summer some slight changes in
our defensive tints arc possible, and
they are now being carried out.
It is the truth that many of our
men have eone through months ot
the war, have been wounded and sent
down to the base, and have returned
and have served again for more
months, and yet in all that time
they have never seen even the tip of
a German  helmet.
To such a pitch has tbe art been
brought of rendering every arm of a
force in the field invisible tbat there
appears at first sight to be an almost total lack of nnimation—almost of animal life—along those near
nnd elos'lv-welded hostile trenches
from which there comes, either incessantly or at carefully chosen timet
the storm of steel of which some
small percentage is sure, sooner or
later, to take toll of our men. As
the summer has filled and colored the
fields and trees, the German grey-
green khaki is found to be not as inconspicuous as out  sandier tint.
Indeed, nothing is more impressive
than to tind that what seemed in the
fading evening to be but some open
expanse of ruins by the roadside
arched over by full-foliaged trees and
marked here with the wreckage of
half-burned hayracks or sheds, Is in
reality a densely crowded area, in
which strange outlines take unexpect-.
ed shajie as hune road engines with
12 ft. wheels, or "caterpillars" aB
mighty as they are uncouth, or lorries half-ter.ted over by the score, or
lighter convoys by the dozen—all
ranked most orderly, each with its
crew beside it, overhauling and checking the carriages and their contents
in low tones, as though the enemy
were 2<)>, instead of 2,000 yards
away. A hundred yards on you look
back, and the great concentration has
once more become a mere feature of
the landscape, while your car is almost upon an invisihle tramping of
men, whom you cannot for the life of
you distinguish from the dusty road.
Whether in dry weather or in wet,
the army seems equally invisible,
and one of the most difficult things
to realize is that along and ahout
this wide flat land of Flanders, and
Its fast-ripeninc fields, there is bestowed such an army as Eneland in
all its long history never assembled
thc tithe of. Believe me, unless you
know where to look, you will see
more fizhtine men in London any
week-day without goine three miles
from Charing Cross than you are
likely to mee": in three days' fast
motoring about the roads of northern
France. It is hardly too much to say
that, for most purposes, the two
huge masses of contendine men that
line the western front are invisible,
not merely to each other, but largely to themselves as well.

It is reported on the most, ri liable
I authority from Seattle that Alvo von
Alvensleben lias been in one of thc
hospitals there for about three weeks
as a result of an argument in one
of the clubs In that city. According
to thc story given to The Sun, Alvensleben asserted in a loud v.iice
and within the hearing of several
gentlemen present that any German
officer could lick any two Englishmen alive. At this stage a very small
but particularly burly Canadian or
Englishman arose from a chair and
said, "I won't wait for the other one,
come on," after which Alvensleben
was taken to the hospital. It is neeil-
less to say that the incident caused
considerable sensation and excitement.
