Illustrated   Lecture   by A.
Wheeler on Selkirk Mts.
One uf the must interesting ami instructive lectures that bas wer been
delivered tu a Revelstoke audience ivkb
given at ihe EdiBon Parlor Theatre on
Thursday night hy Mr. A. O. Wheeler,
F.R.G.S., [ireaideut of the Alpine Cluh
uf Canada on the Selkirks and Rue
kies, The Rev. J. R Robertson intror
duced Mr. Wheeler to a guud audience
touching on the newly formed organization of tbe Revelstoke Mountaineering Club and its advantages, concluding by Imping that its members would
get nearer heaven than tbey were now
by climbing.
Mr. Wheeler was received witb
much enthusiasm and at mice went
into his subject of the mountains of
the Selkirks, giving a graphic description of the many mighty peaks and
glaciers, illustrated hy maguilicent
stereopticon pictures. A happy feature uf Mr. Wheeler's lecture is the
vein of humor that is spread through
his descriptions, autl with the hundred
and one anecdotes, of which ho has a
vast (und, such a lecture caanol fail
to leave its impressiun. He dwelt on
the advantages of the Alpine Club and
its popularity, urging Canadians to
realise more fully what a great asset
they had in their mountains. The
views thrown on the screen were taken
from all parts of the great Selkirk
snosi world and were veritable treasures iu that they enabled people to
traverse valley, glacier, ravine, peak
and sunin it in comfort, «_> realistic
were tbe pictures.
As a lecturer, Mr Wheeler is second
to none, every word being interesting
and instructive. He instanced the
mountain and stream as the workshop
of the country, forming, as they do,
rich alluvial doposits round the rivers.
A very lengthy series of pictures on
the Alpine camp, proved particularly
interesting, and showed tho great wurk
being done. He explained the sad
accident at the Rogers' Puss camp la-t
year, saying with sorrow that dis
obedience to the guide's instructions
had been the main cause. In conclusion a very line set of glacial
pictures were shown anil the matte

More bread and mui Mm
 And the Reason for it
A STRONG FLOl'R can only
*a be ma,lc from strong wheat.
Manitoba hard wheat is acknowledged the strongest in the wotld—
and thut is the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Every grain
of this wheat contains both high-
grade and low-grade properties.
In separating the high-grade parts
from the low-grade the Western
Caaada Flour Mills put the hard
wheat through a process so exacting
that not a single low-grade part
has the remotest chance of getting
in with the high-grade.
Of course Ihis special
process is
mure expensive In operate hut- it
means a lot to Purity fiour users—
that's why ive use il.
It minus thut Purity Flour is
iiuiile entirely of the highest-grade
flour parts of the strongest wheat
in the world.
It means n high-class, strung flour
and therefore yields "more bread
and better bread."
Purity may cost a little more
thiin Bimic flours, but results prove
it the cheapest aud most ecunuui-
ical after all.

Dr. Spencer's Address Brings
to Light Startling Features
Dr. Spencer began his address on
Thursday with comments upon the
evils arising out ol the present method
of handling the liquor traffic, instancing in particular the vicious manner
in which the lumbermen, miners and
others ol similar occupations are made
the victims of the greed of the liquor
sellers. He gave as an instance an
offer made by one sawmill owner to
give a hotelkeeper, whose place of
business was near the sawmill, $,000
for tbe surrender of his liquor license.
Tue offer was declined and tt counter
proposition presented that il the Baw-
mill man would make hie pay cheques
payable lor the lollowing live years at
the hotel, the proprietor of the hotel
would pay him au enormous sum of
Taking up the Bpread nf the temperance movement Dr. Spencer stated
that in the United Stales 35,000,000
people were living in states where
either Loo*I Option ur prohibition
prevailed and in Canada every province of the Dominion had provision
for temperance legislation in the
different municipalities should such
municipalities choose to enact it,
except the Province of British Columbia. The province ol Prince Edward
Island under total prohibition had
recently hoisted the Hag at top mast
over every gaol in the province in
consequence of these gaols being without inmates whilst at the same time
the Province ol British Columbia
under a license law had the gaols
overflowing and the prisoners moved
from one place to the other to Hull
room fur tbe ever increasing crowd.
In consequence of bucIi a .-lain of
affairs in British Columbia whilst
other provinces had taken a forward
movement iu the cause ot temperance
a convention of temperance workers
was formed last fall at the Cnas'. and
the Lucal Optiun League ol B. 0. waB
formed with district uuious throughout the Province.
From such local unions delegates
were Bent tu Victoria upon the open-
iug of the Legislature. To the number ol 150 tbey waited upon the
Government and presented a petition
with 35,000 names asking for a local
option law. Following this premutation uf the caBe a email delegation
of men interested in the liquor trallic
with 100 telegrams Irum different
parts of the province waited upon the
government and asked that nothing
be done in tbe manner asked lor in
the petition. After taking the matter
i into consideration the government
decided to meet the wishes ol the
liquor interests rather than those ol
the 35,000 voters who had signed the
lucal option petition. A promise wae
however given to put the matter to a
plebiscite uf the people. This would
likely take place at the lime ol the
next Provincial elections.
Dr. Spencer made an appeal to all
good citi/.eiiB fur the financial support
which would be necessary to carry on
the campaign thus thrust upon the
country and stated that whilst tbe
Local Option League of British Columbia was asking only tbe modest
sum ol $6,000 to Becure for each
municipality tbe right to say whether
licenses should he issued or not, the
liquor interests were organizing a fund
of $Ki,(SKI tu enmlml their efforts. Ot
this munificent sum Irom one small
town aluiiii a contribution of $5,000
had been made.
In closing the meeting Dr. Spencer
promised to take up nn Wednesday
evening al the V.M.C.A. a general
uutline ol the work to be done and the
results thut might be accomplished il
all church workers and temperance
people would get together for a common cause.
Rev. Dr. Speuoer, travelling secretary ol  tbe  Looal  Option League of
British Columbia, addressed a meetiug
on Wednesday evening in the gym-
uaBium of the Y.M.C.A. Although
there were other counter-attractions
there waB a fuir attendance. Suitable
mueic waa rendered hy a male quartette. The speaker took as his subject "Problems of B.C." After riferring
briefly to euch subject as the Land
Question, Railway Construction, Fdu-
cation and Religion, he turned to the
real subject of his remarks under the
heading oi "The Drink Traffic."
Dr. Spencer Baid that the term
Local Option was not fully understot d
by a large number of people who
be called upon to vote upon the question at some time in the ueur future.
It was the object of the meeting to
explain the situation.
Local option means that the peuple
of each locality are given the optiun
ol Baying whether licences shall be
granted in such lucalities lur the sale
ol intoxicating liquor. An instance
was given of a district in B. C. which,
although not under a local uptiun law
had in reality local optiun results.
That place was Summerland where
there were nu liquur licences, no gauls
and uu police ullicers.
The forward move of temperance
feeling was evinced by Ihe results of
the municipal elections in such towns
as Revelstoke, Nanaimo and New
Speaking of the difficulties tu be
met wilh by thuse wurking lor the
temperance cause, Dr. Spencer stated
that iu Victoria the liquor men had
asked a wholesale house tu dismiss an
employee who hud been circulating a
local option petition, but were met by
the reply that a.) lung as the young
man did his wo k during wurking
huurs he was ui liberty to employ bis
time as he wished while uut on duly.
In Vernon the Bohool trustees were
asked to dismiss u teacher because he
was a lucal option worker. In New
Westminsters government official was
elected os alderman on the temperance
pUtlurm and the liquur interests at
unoe waited upon the Guvernment tu
Becure ihis mini's withdrawal either
trum the alderraahlc board or frum uis
government position.
Referring to lhe Qottenberg system
which was to have the consideration
ul the government, Dr. Spencer Baid
that much uf the goud results which
were attributed tu thai system were in
reality due to lucal uptiun which waB
in operation in districts adjoining
those under the Qottenburg systim.
If credit were honestly given lor the
goud HCCurnpliBlied in the respective
districts, it wnulil he seen that Inenl
option was the pnwer fur guud and nut
so noticeable the uther system.
Touching upon thu claim made thai.
tLe Scnit Act years agu wus a failure
the speaker claimed that the Act wus
weak in its administrative feat urea
and thai the Scutl Act as nuw in
force was wurking well in the districts
Ittvured by such law. The lucal optiun
bill which the government was asked
to puss was strung in its administrative features and if brought inin effect
with the support of the temperance
workers throughout the districts,
should make a power tor good.
Iu closing, an appeal was made blithe loyal support ol all good living
people in the t (fort to butter the moral
atmosphere uf the Province hy taking
uwaj the evils uf the liquur trallic
