Those wbo assume that it the Kaiser were to die the end of tbe war
would be brought appreciably nearer
must remember that thc crown prince
is supposed to be an even greater
militarist than hia father, says the
Mall &■ Empire, For years it has
been a matter ol International gossip
that the trouble between father and
son was owing to tbi fact that the
Crown Prince considered his father
lather a pacifist, and that he strenuously objected to Germany backing
down on the occasion of the Agadir
incident. We know, of course, bow
mistaken was the notion that Emperor William was a real friend of peace
and had an ambition to keep Cier-
many out of war as long as he reigned. We should be equally mistaken
iu attributing to his son any greater
wisdom or humanitarian Instinct
than his father has revealed. Tho
< leiwn Prince, should he become emperor while thc war lasts, might, ev
en after Germany's experience of the
1 ist year and a half, be less inclined
to bring it to an end than his father.
He would, moreover, have less Influ-
ence than the present emperor, even
i: he desired to save the remnants ol
the German empire at whatever cost
te. h:s own pride, and ti the ambitions of the Junker class.
Nor must the fact be lost sight ol
that while the Kaiser is held responsible fer thc war, there was a whole
caste, the so-called aristocracy dl
Germany, that was just as ready for
war as the war lord bin self. and
would be just as determined t    catry
it on after the Kaiser's death as before if the) believe.1 there was any
chance of sucess. lt will be this
i lass, rather than the' Kaisei or the
Crown Prince, that will bold oul

velopment and should attract the attention of every citizen of the province. The coast mines at present are
bound to s?nd their ore to Tacoma
or Trail to be smelted, and usually
the blister copper is sent to Now Jersey to be refined, and this adds so
much to the cost of production. With
the Brittania mln? extending and increasing its productive capacities, it
is a great handicap that there is no
refinery nearer so that we caci handle
our own blister copper. The British
government is said to Ire very interested in the question and the establishment of a smelter and refinery on
the coast would give a great impetus
to British Columbia copper mining.—

Splendid Financial Sta i ment

The annual business meeting ol ihe
congregation of St. John's Presbyterian church was held on Wednesday
epening, when a goodly number
gathered together to review the work
of the past year. Reports were presented from the various organizations of the church, which were /eiy
The Session report showed 141) communicants on the roll, being a slight
The financial statement, which was
presented by F. P. Creech, showed
the church to be in a very prosperous
condition, despite the hard year and
the loss of many supporters who have
answered the call of their country
and arc fighting in the trenches.
The Sabbath School report Bhowed
about 2fKI pupils on the roll, which is
the highest membership the school
has yet attained, and the problem of
providing more class room will shortly have to be dealt with. The collec-
tions were as encouruging as the at
tendance and the school was a liberal
contributor to missions and other
branches of the church.
The Ladies Auxiliary accomplished
much during the year both socially
and financially, and their untiring et-
forts in welcoming the newcomers and
strangers  was highly  apjireciated.
Tbe Missionary Society, Y. P. S.,
Choir and Adult Bible Class eacb
gave interesting reports worthy of
much praise.
Of the nine members on the board
of managers the following three were
due to retire this year: F. P. Creech,
Vi. L. Stewart and M. K. McQuarrie
—also J. S. Hoss, being absent from
the city. On a ballot being taken the
following were elected to fill the vacancies: R, S. Garrett, J. H. Lyons,
R. Chisholm and I'M IM Creech.
The matter di installing the water
in the church was favorably consider-
id and this work will no doubt be
completed In the spring.
une noticeable feature of the meeting was the absence of so many familiar faces of young men of the con-
gregation who have gone to serve
their king, and while sorely missed it
was realised that the church's loss is
our     '• iun1 ry a    gain,     and    ll   was
th ;ht     fitting that an honor    roll
should be unveiled in the church at
in early date.

On account of shortage of water,
the Blue Bell has been forced to curtail opTations, closing down the mill

The Hedley Gold Mining company

A new coal area is being opened up
at Nanoose Bay, where diamond drilling is being attended with encouraging results. Conditions generally affecting conditions on thc island show
a decided Improvement as there is a
better market for coal, and production shows an all-round improvement.
It is reported in Rossland that the
Greenwood smelter has been compell-
; ed to close temporarily on account of
the inability of the CMP.R. to furnish
the necessary train service to     keep
i the  srr.elter supplied  with ore.     The
| severe cold weather in that section
of the province has crippled transportation     in     such a manner as to
j make traffic almost an impossibility
and the fact also that a wreck occurred on the lire there in which one
of the ore trains was badly mixed up
and has not been cleared to permit of
the movement of trains to the smel-
i ter, is said to have added to the
troubles and delay in the transporta-
I tion of ore to the smelter.
W. R.  Winstead     was down during
i the past week from Whitewater, near
I which place he is still plugging away
' on ground which he is confident     is
[traversed by the big Whitewater vein.
j He did not open up any big ore bodies     so     far, but confidently bellves
i that he  will, or thut  someone     else
| will  yet  bang into  something  rather
. big in that vicinity.   That he haB the
big jumbo of a Whitewater vein     at
I the point    where it cuts across   Lyle
| creek there is not the slightest rens-
! on to douht. and Mr.     Winstead     is
putting up a long drawn and valiant
ringle     handed fight  with very   little
capital hut his own energy and mus-
uilnr power.   Through  all these years
Mr.     Winstead has never once     lost
faith     in    the old Whitewater camp,
and     he stoutly maintains that     the
Whitewater     vein    has never reached
the maximum of its production,  but
holds that the future will see   some
of    the biggest mines working   along
its course that are to be found anywhere in the country.—Kaslo Kooten-
The Rambler mill is no longer concentrating Surprise ore, and the latter property is taking out and shipping crude ore only.
Some important development work
is shortly to be commenced on the
Red Buck property on Kennedy moun
tain, near Princeton.
On account of low water in Coffee
creek resulting in a shortage in the
supply of air from the Coflee croek
air compressor, operations on the
tunnel being driven by the McCune
interests to tap the L'nited, near
Ainsworth, have had to be discontinued for a time.
With the coming of cold weather,
trouble is being experienced at tho
Cedar Creek mill on account of latx.
of water (or milling purposes and tho
(few at the mill has had to be put
on a one shift basis. This is a dis-
appotntment to the management ot
the Florence Silver Lead Mines, as it
means a curtailment in production,
just after getting everything going
nicely and just at the time when improved sleighing had made better ore
hauling conditions possible. Aid.
Speers, who has the contract for the
hauling of the Florence ores from the
mine to the mill, has had to lay ofl
part of his outfit, as the condition
of the road in makes it possible to
swamp the mill with feed even if tha
plant were running on full time.
In view of the demand for zinc the
Slocan Star Mines Ltd., bave decided on making extensive improvements
to utilize to the hest advantage, and
while the market is good, the extensive reserves in zinc ore in the mine.
It is proposed to instal a new power
plant on Carpenter Creek at Sandon,
and to construct an aerial trarr.way
between the mill and the railway.
This will make the mine independent
of the shortage of power experienced
during the dry season; and will reduce the cost of hauling ore to the
railway and delivering supplies at the
mine to an appreciable extent. To
finance this an issue of HOODOO iB being authorised. The Slocan Star has
in the past been one of the best mines in the Slocan and development ol
late has shown such steady improvement and increase of ore reserves
there is little douht the mine will
again take a leading place anoog

Volley ball was Invented by a Y.M.
C.A. physical director named Morgan
It was introduced at Springfield at a
convention of physical directors.
Since that time which was some years
ago, the game has undergone some
Changes, the rules have been revised
-again ;ind airain, the ball and net
ihave been Improved and today volley
hall is played in almost every gym-
.Ttasium, plnygrour.id and summercamp
in the country, and also played a
ureat deal by the soldiers in the
training camps where tbey have organised  games for the men.
Volley ball is one of the most flexible nf games. It is played by all
classes, boys and girls, men and wo-
•men, from the little boy in tbc playground to the man of seventy years
of aire and in the business men's class
at the gymnasium. It can be played
Mn any sized court indoors or out and
the number of players is not at all
fixed, almost any number can join in
the game. The rules are changeable
to suit conditions and this is ofteu
-done, but there is a standard otlicial
■*et of rules adopted by the physical
directors society to control league
eames, etc. These mny be altered and
the game loose none of its charm.
Volley ball was designed primarily
for tbe Business men It is a game
leijuirinr skill easily developed, and
it bas the peculiar property of taking
the mind of the player off everything
■.md claiming his whole attention,
which is the great point in its tavor,
It t.tkes the mind .if :he man off his
business for a while and gives his
tmiy moderate exercise suited to his
needs. ;
Volley Ball
Matches Played
On Tuesday evening the regular volley ball games were played in the Y.
I league, the lirst game being between
the Business Men and thai Undertakers
The game started out with a long
period where neither team made a
point at all, and in fact all through
the game the |>oints were made slowly and the game was rather slow to
those in the gallery. The final score
lor the tirst game was in favor of the-
Undertakers 21 to 9. ln the second
game the Business men picked up
wonderfully and tho game was fast
all the time, especially near tbe end
when the Business Men were 19 arid
the Undertakers only 9. The Business
Men played a confident game and finished with the score on their side ol
the net 21 to 14. This made a game
each nnd hoth teams tightened up
and played a fast game. The Undertakers showed their superior skill
this time and held the other team
down to a final score of 21 to 13.
This makes the second victory for the
Undertakers, rfo fa'" they haven't
lost a game.
The second match of the evening
Was between the Dent House and the
government teams. The Dent House
played their best volley ball this season ani it looks as if there was going to be some pretty hard battles
fought over the net. They took two
Irom the (Government although they
bad to work for every point. The
scores for the games were 21-16 and
21-10. The Government was at a disadvantage in not having a full team
on the floor, hut when they get into
shape they are going to be hard to
The games Ior next week are: Business Men vs. Bankers and Undertakers vs. Government.

Thl theatri goers of Revelstoke
were afforded a real treat on the evening of January 5th when the amateur dramatic club presented that
mirthful three-act comedy "What
Happened to Jones" at the opera
house, to a large and thoroughly ap-
preciative audience. Prom start to
Pnish the plot Is replete with humor,
the purest ...nd best, and the actors
brought home tho best of each hum-
orous situation as it occurred.
It was an ambitious feature on thJ
part ol ti.'- Dramatic club to attempt
Mn   production  of this play  but the
tesult     nt ived  that  their confidence
in tt.'-ir own ability was neither over-
estimated nor misplaced.
The     curtain     rose on an interior
• m -the     library   in the home     of
Prof.  Eherezei   Goodly and the same
setting     Aas     used     throughout the
play.   Tn*  fittings     were     such     as
might easily bave put to shame   the

Away buck iu the early "nineties,"
Mr. Dominick Gallicano, assisted by
lis cajiable and energetic wife, contracted to supply bread to all the
section gangs operating between Revelatoke and the Summit. Quito a contract that! Especially when the
bread had to bc baked in a small
homemade oven. But the same en-
terjirising business spirit which impelled him to extend his operations
in those early days has never (lagged
nor han his faith in Revelstoke ever
wavered. When the now bake shop
on Third street was completed last
month Mr. Gallicano saw the completion of an ambition he has cherished
for years and at the same time added a vuluublo asset to the city's
weal th and a tangible evidence of
his confidence in the town, not only
in its future but in its present. 'Made
in Revelstoke,' was the rule wherever
it was possible. The cement blocks
with which the 34 loot hy 54' foot
building is constructed were manufactured  by Mr.  Pradoiiui
The wonderful floor, which draws
exclamations of astonishment and delight from all visitors on entering
the shop, is mado of chipped marble
embedded in cement—all done by local talent. No dust, grease, oil or
grin.e can lodge on the smooth poi-.
ished mirror like surface, thus assuring perfect floor sanitation.
The high walls are of snow-whito
bard plaster, the ceiling of polished
metal. The long kneading trough, the
moulding tables, drawers, trays,
trucks, etc., are all of white hardwood.
But the chief attraction of this big
spotless hiikeshop is the over, which
almost, fills the far end of the room.
Shining white tiles cover the front
wall. Te,v<i big doors which swing
upward at a touch admit the bread
Between the doors is set a thermometer and an electric lighting arrangement which reveals every corner of
the interior and shows the bread in
process of cooking—pnn loaves at the
back, single loaves in the middle and
here at the very front the delicious
French loaves, odd in shape, each ac-
quiring its peculiarly nut-like flavor
by beinc baked on the hare hot
bricks. This French loaf is a specially of Mr. Galllcano's and is becoming more nnd  more in demand.
Another specialty that Mr. Gallicano hopes to put. on the market
very soon is the "wrnpiied loaf."
Single loaves only can be wrapped by
the machine but particular people
who are willing to pny the very
slightly increased price can be accommodated.
There is nothir.ig Mr. Gallicano desires more in connection with this
new, uptodntc, sanitary bakehouse
than that the public of Revelstoke
should come and see it for themselves
"Seeing   is   believing."  Every  visitor
becomes an enthusinst over the shining cleanliness of the shop, its perfect sanitary arrangements, the dust-
proof, germproof methods of handling
and protecting thc loaves and finally
tho excellence of the baked loaves. We
venture to prophecy that lower 0*

weary themselves themselves producing the home-made product ln thp
days to come.
