fragment of wuod sti tick his head iu
such a fashion that tbe skin was
bruken, aud a big portion ul the entire
scalp forced over bis forehead. With

Oddfellows Worship in  Baptist
Thii hi,mini church pantile uf Selkirk Lodge No. 12, I.O.O.F. wae held
last Sunday evening when the lodge
members accompanied by the members
of the lucal Rebekah ludge Attended
divine worship at the Baptist church
where they were addressed by Kev. \V.
P. Freeman the pastor ot the church.
Tbere wera mure than half a hundred
members and visitors in the procession
and over a score of liebckahs and
these with the regular congregation
filled the church to the doors.
In addressing the CongregatBon Rev.
Mr. Freeman took for his text the
statement made by Jesus of Nazareth
oonoerning himself that "Even the
Son ut Miiii-caine uut tu he ministertd
unto but to minister." Pustulating
that belief iu the fatherhood nl Owl
presupposes a beliul in lhe beotberhoi d
uf man, tbe preacher stated that the
present day problems are social problems recognizing man's obligations lo
his fellows and that among urganized
societies lor social work the Oddfellows
arc doing a valiant share.
Adverting to hie text he stated that
the coming of the Son ol Man presaged a recognition ut the need uf such
ministratiuns as He cuuld give and
He cume tu minister. Amung the
needs cal ling most loudly tor human
and Divine sympathy and help are
Buffering, poverty and death. Into
the dark places caused by tliese tbe
Son ol Man came and among His
followers the ministrations of sympathy take like form.
The character that would create a
desire to take part in such miuistra-
tious was, tbe speaker said, such as is
based un the motto ol the Order to
which be was speaking, "Friendship,
Love and Truth." These in their
turu had their bitBit uf the luve ol Gud
and sprang Irom tbat source. Tbey
ahuttld be recognized as a part of tbe
Divine economy in the ministrations
to the earth's needs.
Turning then to the practical features of the service Mr. Freeman spoke
ot the extensive work carried on in its
various benevolent I'urms by the
Independent Order of Oddfellows,
quoting statistics to show that in
membership and chanties it BtantU in
tbe lead among fraternal societies. In
charity, relief and comfortable ministrations in the last hours ul sickness
and death its wurk was a bletsing to
those whu receive it.
Bright music characterized the
service, which was pruuuuiiced to be
highly enjoyable throughout,
Another Famine With Rise in
Prices Predicted
Horace J. Stevens, author ol Copper
Handbook, takes an optimistic view
ol the copper situation, although he
admits there is uu prospect uf immediate relief.    Mr. Stevens recently eaid
"In my judgment the situation is
nut su black as many imagine. There
is a considerable uccumnlatiun ol un-
consumed copper in this province anil
abroad, but return to normal business
conditions in the United States will
absorb that surplus quite rapidly, and
all things considered, I think the cm
in prioe was the part ut wisdom as il
will be butter (ur the metal market tu
pass into act mil uho at roiluceil prices
rather than tu pile up further.
"From my reading ol the statistics
of production and consumption I am
led to anticipate another copper
famine—or what will be called such—
probably within the next two years us
the world's increase in the output bus
boen much below normal lor three
years past. This will mean another

the pockets of parliamentary hangers-on and political hucksters.
Last year the dome of the parlia-
nient buildings rang with denunciation of the Norlh Atlantic Trading
Company's purchasing scandals
lhe London election scandals and
alleged land scandals in the northwest. This year the attempt was
made tu impeach Hun. William
Pugsley, minister of public works,
because of a transaction shady to
say the least—in which the attempt
was nuiili! to implicate the minister.
A contractor named McAvity whose
tender for some dredging was fifty
cents per cubic yard applied to
Hon. Mr. Pugsley for a lift to obtain the con tract. Ile was advised
to see one Ames who, in turn asked
him why uot charge titty-live cents
a yard. The upshot of the ileal
was iii! agreement between Aine?
and McAvity by which the latter
paid the former live cents per yard
on all dredging and excavating
done by him. The total amount
if 15, I.      In addition to
Announcement was made lust
week in the const papers that important consultations were in pro-
press between Mr. William Whyte,
second vice-president of the C.P.R.
and Air. 11. M. Palmer, deputy
minister of agriculture with other
members of the government and
ollicials of fruit selling organizations at the coast. The object of
these consultations was said to be
to discuss schemes for the inuugur-
atinn of a system of refrigerator
storage for lhe quartering and
shipment uf fruit products. No
information was given to the press
as to the decisions of the conference
but it mny be assumed that with
the C.P.R. taking a vital interest
in the matter and the government
lending the smile of its approbation to projects of this kind something will come uf it. On the
whole, while co-operative schemes
have an advantage over no methodical procedure at all it must he
apparent that any project of stilli-
cient magnitude to interest the
ollicials of the C.P.R. and obtain
the ear of the government will
mean much for both the shippers
and purchasers of fruit. We shall
awuit with keen interest the announcement of the maturity of the
plan. lt would seem as though
these corporations were about to
say to the grower: "Vou raise the
fruit and we will look after your
marketing." Properly done, that
will be a big thing for the country.
In view nl the numerous
letters of enquiry that arc being received from different
residents of this riding whose
names are at present being advertised as to be struck off the
Voter's List on the score of
non-residence, the Conservative Association wish to state
most emphatically they have
not entered a single objection,
and that the list as advertised
contains names objected to by
representatives of the. Liberal

Indications Point to Busy Industrial Season.—Enlargement of C.P.R. Shops—Mills
Rushed With Summer Orders.
The approaching summer promises
to be one ol the busiest from every
industrial standpoint thut Kevelstoke
has experienced for some time and the
citizen who lives quietly in the midst
ul what is guing ou will no doubt be
startled at Ihe cumulative evidence of
the strides that are being made in the
sphere ol the business ot the citv.
Chief among the announcements
which promise big things for Ktvel-
stoke is that of the C.P R. that the
oompany will prepare tu handle a
Urge perceutsge ol the wheat shipments ul the prairies, sending the
cereals hy way ol Vancouner and
Pacilic Coast ports. For years the
C.P.K. has had siteB selected in Vancouver upon which to erect elevators
for the storage aud shipment of wheat,
lor, farseeing as that company is, it
has lung been evident thata large part
of the wheat transportation muBt be
diverted from the lake routes and be
sent by way of the CoaBt. The lurther
announcement by several extensive
grain dealers in Calgary and other
prairie points that in case the C. P. R.
postponed the erection ol elevators
they were themselves prepared to do
au at once, leaves no doubt ss to the
intention uf the shippers to Uoe tLe
short route to the salt water and
thence to fureign murk. Is. The ti ual
assurance of Mr. XV. Whyte, second
vice-president ol lhe C.P.R , has, however, ubviatid the assumption uf the
task and the investment involved in
such au undertaking by private dealers and the big company will handle
tbe grain.
Wherein the announcements are of
supreme interest to Revelsluke lies in
the f ict that auy cuusiderable diversion ol the wheat trallic through the
mountains will necessitate a very cuusiderable increase in the hauling and
rolling stock of the transpnrtatiuu
company. Such an increase will
involve not only the supposition hut
the sale that very largely
increased r pair wurk will be necessary
to keep the rolling stock iu order, and
as llevelstnke is in the very heart
of the mountains the natural conclusion would be that the major portion ol such repair work must gravi-
tate to thia point. In such event the
enlargement ol the local shops and
the employment ul an increased furce
ol men must fulluw, all oi which will
tend materially tu the permanent
upl uililinfr ot the city Whether the
advantages will be it'll iu their luluess
this year need nut be discussed. The
increa-ing   trallic,  unce  the   western
route is established, will bring with it
each .in added increment frnm
haulage and »..rk thut will hecume a
Cuutiniiiius suurce of revenue tu the
Apart Irom these issues the city
itsell promises to be this year a veritable hive ol industry. There are nine
sawmill- within a radius ol less than
lurty miles and tliese have all a
plethora of urders for the summer
trade, some even having to refuse
heavy urders Irom prairie ouatoineis.
The increase ol industry in the mills
will neceiaitate the enlargement of
mill gangs and this in turn will react
upon Revelstoke which is the base ul
eupplies. Lugging camps also will be
mure severely taxed and these will
c. ntribute tbeir i|tiota to the general
business prosperity ol the town. In
addition tu these, twu muiiiilaciui'ii.'s—
sash and duur lacturiea—will keep
large crewa at wurk and furm nu small
part "I the industrial activity ol the
Within the city tbe laying ol sewers
will keep cniiMantly employed a large
lores nl men whu might otherwise
have tu Icsve home lu  teuk  prulitable
wurk fur the Bummer.
Mure than all these, the amount nl
building guing on within the city is a
surprise to those not familiar with the
growth of the town. More houses are
being erected this summer than for
many yeara ard this unmistakably
indicates an increase in the population aa well aa the improvement of the
conditions under which the old-timers

of men, whose prosperity will reflect
upon the material good of the business
of the city. The building ol the
bridge across the Columbia is not an
insiguilicant task and, buth in tlie
matter uf supplies fur the structure
itself, and lhe men whu are building it
will give added impetus tu many lines
of commerce.
The expenditure of a reasonable sum
by the government in the improve
ment of old roads und the building nf
new unes and uf trails will also iadi-
iate Irum Revelstuke as the centre of
operations and authority.
All these when taken together constitute a catalogue uf activities which,
while nut promising to bourn Revelstuke, give the spirit of optimism to ita
business men und bring the cheer ul
old times to the hearts ef old residents.
The general prosperity of the province
could not isolate the city, which must
take its place and secure its share in
the forward movement which is nuw a
readily recogtii/ed feature of provincial
development. With its natural resources and the business ability with
which these are being developed tbe
outlook for a aeasun ul unusual pros
perity is opening belure the city The

The prospective lormation of a
Citizens' League among the Italian
residents of Kevelstoke promises an
early cessation ol certain features of
civic life which have for some time
been somewhat annoying to private
citizens and have cau.ed incessant
activity in pulice circles as well. The
new league which is already in process
of organization, wi 1 cooperate witb
tne citizens ol Revelstoke for the
maintainance of law and urder among
the Italian residents and the manifesto
published below signed by representative residents ul the Italian coluny,
amply sets furth the purpose for which
it is being organized. A letter, which
is in the natuie of a pledge, has been
addressed to the Mayor and Council
dealing with the matter and reads as
