Four Thousand Eight Hundred
Dollars for Mrs. Rachael
An award of 14800 has been made
ly a special jury in the Supreme
Court to Mrs. Rachel Carmichaei, of
RevelBtoke, mother of John Carmichaei, a railway engineer, who died as
the result of scalds received by iall-
^ing into an underground draining
trough at the Canadian Pacific railway roundhouse? at Rogers Pass on
November 21,  1918,
None of the witnesses were present
Iat the time of the ,,ccident. and Carmichaei  was unable   after being rescued to fire any coherent account  of
the accident. It was alleged     by   the
plaintiff's counsel. S.S. Taylor, K.C..
that the lid  of the     catch  basin had
I been lifted to allow the contents     to
he syphoned     ort,     and without  any
warning, harrier or light, Carmichaei
bad walked into the trough in entering the roundhouse. The young   man
,died some hours     later in Revelst..ke
hospital  from  3hock.  E.   V.  Bodwell,
K.C., appeared for the railway   company.  Mr.  Ju«tice Murphy     presided
over  the trial.  One of the witnesses
was Dr.  Sutherland of Revelstoke.
Fire which broke out ahout 6,:!0
last night destroy^ the steam laundry at the Revelstoke Hotel. The
building which is a ruin was worth
91,500. The machinery was valued at
$l,10(i and was also completely destroyed. It waB insured Ior $70n.(iQ
with the Kootenay Agencies. Laundry
to the value of about $.">00 was also
destroyed, but was practically all
covered  by  insurance.
The building is the property of the
Canadian  Pacilic railway    and     was
leased to A.  J.  McDonell of the    Re-
j velstoke     Hotel.     Mar     Eulie    had
charge of     the     place     for Mr.  Mc
' Donell. The tire nrignde were quickly
' on the scene but there was poor pressure on the Canadian Pacific railway
hjdrants at the top ot tbe hill.    An-
. other length  of hose    was connected
| from the city  hydrant at the stntion
and the fire was soon under   control.
The blaze  evidently     started     upstairs and  had a strong hold      before
the fire hrigude arrived.    There   wus
great danger to thc firemen Irom live
wires and ns a consequence the     Re-
v elstoke hotel was in    darkness     for
a short time.
Several Chinamen who slept in thc
building lost small sums of money as
veil as all their clothing.
The first intimation of fire wns
from a dog owned by Mr. McDonell
who was heard Parking loudly and
drew attention to the fire. About
lour years ago the same laundry was
burnt to the eround.
Annual Hospital Ball
on Tuesday Next
The annual hospital ball will be
held in thc Masonic hall on Tuesday
next. Dancing will commence at 9
o'clock and the refreshments will be
all home cooking provided by the
ladles. There will be card tables for
those who do not wish to dance and
the best of dance music will he provided by Orr's orchestra.

Inspection of  Willows   Camp
Shows   Men  are Well
Taken Care Of
The following account ol conditions !
nt the Willows  Camp     where Revelstoke  volunteers  are quartered    will j
be read with interest':
There are 2,500 men, or more,
quartered in the builtHngs and on the
grounds of the British Columbia
Agricultural association, known as
the Willows Camp. These include the
:',0th overseas battalion, who are
training to go to the front; the residue oi the 50th Highlanders and the
X8th Fusiliers; the moveable armament ol the .1th Regiment, and the
Canadian Mounted Rifles. To emphasize the problem of housing, feeding,
to say nothing of outfitting and train
ing, these forces, it may be said thnt
in the main exhibition hall—thc larg- j
est auditorium on the grounds—there
are TOO beds. To B°e thc place at ;
midday no one would imagine it, Ibe-
cause the slim mattresses and thick
blankets are neatly rolled in bundles
and put out of sight. All the other !
structures arc similarly used, but j
still there is not enough sleeping j
space 'indoors for thc troops. Therefore, it was necessary for thc Mounted Rifles to occupy tents, a large
number of which have heen placed in
the rear of the Horse Show auditorium. They find their temporary abodes very comfortable, and healthy,
above everything.
The suggestion has heen made that
there might be an improvement in the
commissariat department. The justification for this depends altogether
upon the critic's conceptioa of what
the sold'ier expects. It is the opinion
ol the officers that their men require
well-cooked, substantial food, served
in scrupulously clean dishes nnd On
tables which are scrubbed once or
more daily. This is what they are
getting. A visit to the f'cook houses"
j proves that the victuals are prepared
! in surroundings of which there could
1 he no legitimate complaint and in a
room thnt is as bright and airy as
the breakfast room of a Rockland
i Avenue mansion. Two fine new ranfces
it may be said in passing, have been
installed, nnd will assist, no doubt,
in the prompt and satisfactory serving of the meaHs.
"A regiment is absolutely self-contained," observed one of the staff of |
!the Sfith Battalion, after he had displayed the dining-rooms, cooking
houses, etc. He proceeded to prove
the statement by leading the way to
the cobbler's room. There were two
artisans hnrd at work mending th-
men's b..ots. F.vidence of the hard
marching which the soldiers have had
ri late wns visible in the amount of
footwear waiting to be repaired. Fur
ther indication of the strcnous days

Lord Kitchener, "Some of these men
look very young." "Does your majesty refer to any particular one?" asked the war secretary who haa a weakness for detnil. For reply King
George asked a juvenile looking, but
sturdy young Canadian, "How old
are you my man?" "Well, your Majesty," said the youngster with a
amile, "I am officially 18." The
king laughed and passed on.
Supplying motor trucks for the second continirent is a matter which
has been giving the government and
militia department a great deal of
trouble and the question is not
yet settled. A special committee was
appointed to deal with the question
and to define a standard to l>e followed. The original idea was that,
while the materials not being made
in Canada should be purchased in the

might be necessary to have this par

In manv Canadian homes every
year Christmas festivities cause regrets and in numerous cases lose of
life among those taking part.
Illuminated effects as Christmas
tree decorations in private homes
are dangerous, and wherever either
fire or lights arc used too much attention cannot be given to thdir
safety. The Christmas tree is in it-
8(11 sufficiently inflammable, but
when to this is added decorations of
cotton batting, light paper balls and
other dangerous material, it is only
by the exercise of great care that
rires can be avoided. Where Christmas trees are erected Vn carpeted
rooms, sheet tin or dine should bc
placed under the tree, to catch the
candle drippings. It should he one
person's duty to watch the candles,
that instant action muy be taken if
the tree takes fire.
In public halls, Sunday schools,
etc.,  where numbers of children     are
issemblecf, unusual precautions
i-hould be tnken. Fire extinguishers
and pails of water should be in convenient places. Santa Clause costumes should he dipped in a solution
of four ounces of phosphate of

Toronto Globe:   As a debtor nation
Canada must work  hard    and     save
money.   There  are not    wanting    evidences that the people are beginning
to understand that thrift is scarcely
less necessary than enterprise and industrial activity if the Dominion     is
to make Buiiml und  lasting   progress
toward   national   greatness.  The   nat- j
ural wealth    is     here.     Opportunity
waits everywhere. The rev'ival of Confidence  will      overcome     the  natural ;
timidity of capital, which is one     of
the  most   Important  causes  of  all industrial  crises.  The  lowest  point    of
the depression has been  passed.    The
aBCSnt has been begun.  Confidence be- !
gets confidence.
Brooklyn Eagle: There is much difference between what the German
Crown Prince now says about war
nnd what he had to say in its pre- ',
face to "Germany in Arms." Now he |
icgards the present conflict as senseless and stupid. As an author, he declared it to be the "holy duty" of his |
country to win its place in the gun
by '.caning on its good sword. He
warned bis countrymen of the danger
of being lulled to sleep by the peace
lullaby of the Utopians, adding: "If
the German people decide to riBk life
and property in a war, then let the
world be full of devils and rise
against us in arms; we can handle it,
ino matter how great the peril of the
hour." If a little more than four
months ago the prince had been as
pacific as ha was belligerent in his
preface, if he had then protested
against an outbreak of hostilities as
senseless nnd stupid, much trouble
might huve been avoided.
