of the ordinary for Revelstoke. In
lact the like has never heen put on
in   the     Y.M.C.A. here. Tho program
I includes a demonstration of the different strokes in swimming, and a
number of Jancy stunts in that line,
a good assortment of fancy dives
done by the boyB of the school boya'
j class. The diving is a new teature
for the Y tbis year. It Is only lately
that there has been ani opportunity

the stack that the smelting operations had begun in earnest. It is
stated that No. 2 lead furnace will bc
blown in within a few days. Each
furnace has a capacity of about 275
tons of ore daily.
A considerable tonnage of ore, fluxes and fuel had been collected at tbe
smelter sinco the completion at the
railroad trackage, and all ore bins In
particular, were known to be lull.
Average receipts of ore lately havo
been ahout flvo carloads a day which
is practically the capacity of one furnace.

part of the year's outlay for thc administration <,f the province, The
cost of tin's,' establishments alone
with that of the provincial     goal   at
I Victoria accounts for $l,l!(Ml,0()0. .
Among the appropriations for bridges are three or four items for steel
structures  which  cost  .plffl.OOO,      and
| there are many more such permanent
outlays. Hundreds of thousands ol
the expenditure on roads was for new
work such as the Banll-Windermei-e
road, or tor new paved highways like
the KingSWay and the Marine Drive.
Strathcona Park development is another charge which might elsewhere
be charged to capital, it may be a
surprise to oui readers to know that
C 6 cost of surveying Ihe prairie land
owned by the Dominion was charged
to capital, and ran Into many millions. We do not defend tbis classification, and would certainly not Justify     "  j" a province which takes the
proceeds of land sales Into current
Income account. But if the like were
done here it would reduce the account
01 the current outlay by more than
half a million. The British Columbia expenditures of last year also in
eluded $250,000 on account ol railway
and bridge subsidies in connection
with the Kettle Valley railway. This
would be charged to capital by any
other province and the Dominion.
Without Including the cost ol surveys it will be seen that between two
and three million dollars of the I'.H-

There are a lot of Conservative
speakers hMiding out the latch string
to the opposition, so far as the various charges that were made during
tlie campaign. Something is bound
to happen. The members of the op-
position who have called the Conservatives everything and failed to 'smile

up against it or the Conservatives are
going to be put In a bad hole when
the proot is forthcoming. "The books
are open, the way is clear and if
there are a lot of dishonest men in

is the trend of the premier's remarks,
and every government supporter in
his reply to the address, has smilingly opened the gate to the opposition

look around and examine everything

Editor Mail-Herald:
The chief drawback to the prosperity (,' Revelstoke is its lack ol industries. Without an industrial payroll
to provide its citizens with employ
ment no city can amount to much. It
is often said that there is nothing
can bo manufactured in Revelstoke ;
that her only resources arc lumbering
and mining, Rut we must not overlook the fact that we are becoming
an agricultural centre. A city backed
by a large farming community is
bound to prosper, This is conceded
by everyone.
■ Our board dt trade have 1 believe
given a great deal of consideration to
the problem of industries suitable for
Revelstoke, but have not succeeded in
solving the problem.
Might 1 Btiggest aii industry whicli
would not only benefit Revelstoke but
every farmer for miles around. I refer to the manufacture of sugar from
beet roots. Here surely is sometbint'
that 'could be made to pay and give
employment to hundreds of settlers.
There is no district in British Columbia where finer root crops can be
grown than right at our doors.
The price of sugar at the present,
time is considerably higher than it
ever has been. On account of the
war the sugar produced by Germany
is shut out of the markets of the
world for ever. Here then is a fine
chance to <.:et in on a good thing and
cripple the enemy at the same tMne.
As to the feasibility of this project
we can find evidence to support it no
further away than the outskirts of
Spokaci-. Some few years ago, when
the Greut Northern railway bought
from D. C. Corbin the railroad that
connects Nelson, B. CM, with Spokane
Mr. Coroin built a refinery at a place
called Waverly, nnd by making contracts with the farmers in that neighborhood induced them to go into the |
sugar beet culture. They built up art1
industry which as far aB I am aware
is still in existence.
As to the cost of building a refinery 1
Of course I say  nothing as I      don't
know, but as we have small sawmills
as well as large sawmills I suppose a I
refinery would cost just as much    as
could be put into it.   That is a point
which the board of trade through its;
able and etlicient secretary could easily     find out.   It also occurs to     me
that     the     Farmers Institute might
lend a hand in considering this ijues-:
The manufacture of beet sugar is a .
very simple process after all and the
demand for sugar constantly incrcas-
es.   Fortunes have been made  in   the
sugar  business.   If we have any  real:   Four   marriage licenses were issued

This applies to mixed herd milk and
more particularly to milk from single
Th.iB, if milk is valued according to

farmer to know what, the milk does

three cows averaged only 1.8, 2.8 and
