Rainy Weather Did not Dampen Ardor of Revelstoke
Athletes on Victoria Day-
Many Keen Contests
"Hail to the Great Dominion,
Her Hag in splendor Hie*.
Upon the wind's wild pinion,
'Neath blue Canadian skies,
And when the breezes hear it
Aloft on tower or Hood,
It. wakes the kingly spirit.
It stirs tbe Viking blood."
Victoria Day broke threatening and
showery on Monday, a dark veil of
clouds lying low over the hills nnd
blotting out the magnificent mountain scenery. The sun showed itself
for a little while in the morning till a
heavy rain cloud enveloped everything
in its clammy embrace, and heavy
rain poured nearly all the morning.
In spite of the wet the keen sporting
spirit of our city youth was by no
means dampened, and the long programme of sports held under the
auspices of the Y.M.C.A., the first
annual athletic meet of that institution, was commenced. As the day
wore on the weather cleared and a
watery sun did its best to dry things
up a little. A large crowd turned out
to witness the athletic events, bull
games and cricket match, during the
afternoon, vaii.us items proving interesting and exciting. It was gratifying to see that this year the citizens
have risen to the occasion and showed
their patriotism and loyalty by the
flying of flags, the vivid red being
noticeable bere and tbere all over the
city, on private residences, public and
government buildings and stores. Tbe
following is the programme of events
and their winners:

The baseball game although marred
by the rain, created considerable interest the competing teams being tlie
Hopefuls and the Alerts. The game
was very one-sided, the Hopefuls
scoring 18 to their opponents 4.
As in the baseball, so in the lacrosse
the wet rather prevented any brilliant
play, although the Y.M.C A. and the
oity team each put up a good game,
The Y.M.C.A. were tbe beet aggregation and played a good combination
game, their opponents losing chiefly
on account ol lack of this most essential feature of lacrosse. Play was very
fast and at times rough. The score
was: Y.M.C.A. 6, City 4.
Revelstoke met Salmon Arm at
football at tbe close of tbe afternoon
"portp. Salmon Arm put up a hard
light but lacked combination, which
cost them tbe game, the result being

Kilties Band to Tour World
A four years tour of  tho  world  bus
been arranged   for   the   well   known
Kilties band, in the  course  of   which
Australia, New Zealand,   the   Philippines, South Africn and India  will  be
visited, us woll sb  Cauda   aad   Great
Britain.   Frederic Chiptiian, the manager, states that the   band   will be in
Winnipeg   on   Sunday,   June  7, will
give two concerts   there   on   Monday
and Tuesday following.   Mr. Cbipman
bae just returned from the Antipodes
where he spent about two years   witl
Jessie McLachlun    The Scotch people
of Australia and   New   Zealand   sup
ported the tour so generously that Mr.
Cbipman decided to take the Kiltiea to
that country and a contract for   three
years was entered into in Detroit a few
weeks ago.   Forty-five men  will oon
Btitute the party, and ao lur as possible
the same men will be secured us made
tbe tour of England.     About  75 per
cent, of tbe men will be the same, and
so far as   the   instruments   are  concerned, the band   will   be   identically
tbe same.     The  Johnston   Clan   of
dancers will accompany the band, and
two drum majors each over  seven feet
in height   have   been   brought   from
Great Britain.
Negotiations are in progress to have
thiB band play in Revelstoke about the
first week in July.
Narrow Escape of Disastrous
Shortly after 10 o'clock last night
those seated on the piazza of the City
hotel noticed a strong smell of burning
coming from tbe rear of the building.
On inspection being made it was
found that the fire had broken out in
the kitchen which was well alight.
An alarm was quickly turned in from
Box No. 8 which brought a prompt
response by tbe No. 2 Are brigade.
On getting to work the brigade found
that the flames, which evidently
started behind the range, had got a
good hold and had swept up the partitions to the top floor, which made it
a hard task for the firemen to get at
with their hoses. Several apertures
were cut in the walls and ceilings
and a good supply of water was
poured 011 to the flames aud alter a
a little while the fire wa. got under.
The inmates of the bedrooms above
the kitchen made a hurried exit in
more or less clothing, and all got
clear although some of them were well
choked up with smoke. The fire was
confined wholly to the rear of the
building between the walls and the
actual damage is not consid.ruble.
Had the outbreak occurrid a few
houre later, after the household hud
retired to bed in all probability the
entire building would have been destroyed and lives jeopardized. The
djmage is fully covered by insurance,
the policies being issued by various
local agencies.

Firemen Crushed Under Wheels
and Succumbs to Injuries
A fatal accident occurred yesterday
afternoon un a work Iniiii two tniics
east oi Sicamous. It appears that the
work train was heading lor Kevelstoke
and the fireman, J. 11. Abbott, who
was standing on the rear of the tender
and supposedly in the act oi getting
down in order to go to the rear of tlie
train for something, overbalanced and
fell under the wheels of the cars, several passing over him before the
accident was noticed. Tho unfortunate man's right leg and rigbt arm
were crushed tu pulp, practically
severed Irom the body, which was also
badly mangled. Information of the
accident, which occurred at 2 p.m.,
was immediately wired to Kevelstoke
in order to clear the track aud bridge
for the arrival of the train without
delay, but it was not until 5 o'clcck
that the train pulled up at the hospital and the injured man removed
into it. Abbot apparently did not
lose consciousness and tlie terrible
shock to the system would in all probability deaden the nerves and allay
extreme suffering. The injured man
lingered until 7 o'clock when he succumbed. The deceased is well known
in Revelstoke and has been railroading on thii division for some time.
His brother has arrived and will take
tbe body tu Vanoouver, to deceased's
home on No. 97 tonight. General
sympathy iB felt here at tbe sad fatality and horror at its suddeness. The
Maii.-Hkkai.ii extends condolence to
tbe bereaved parents in tlie loss
sustained by tbem. Tbe inquest will
be beld this evening at 8 o'clock.

That it hardly behooreo any of Ua,
To talic aboat the rest of u;.
A great deal has-been sniil of late
about the flying of Ihe British flag,
it being even hinted that BUoh a |
tiling was not necessary, especially
in England, where tho loyalty of
the people goe. without siying,
That may be all very well, hut if
that opinion ia to he taken anil
acted upon, then there will he no
need for a Hag or an ensign of any
kind to be used which will ultimately result in the Hag ns an emblem being it thing of tin; past'
England oannot by any means
afford to drop the significance of
her ling round which there bus
been woven such remarkable history and romance, and after all tho
flag is but the emblem of the Empire and its representative, as is
tne king, a representative of the
people'. Why the use of the flag
should be deemed unnecdssary, we
oannot see, nnd Bhould judge it
that those who think that its prominence is uncalled lor, can hardly
! lie termed loyal to the nation it
represents. TheEnglishmanis not
•so English that ho doesn't need the
flag   of   ihe   Empire  lo wave over
tu, for there may come a day
,i he will be glad for his life
cnat he has been able to obtain
protection and safety under its
folds. In Canada it is altogether
different. There is not the remotest notion in anybody's mind that
a generation may grow up in the
British Isles which will not be
"British." There is no great flood
of foreign immigration spreading
out over the British country and
creating a well scattered population
which has not grown up under
British institutions nnd which may
easily forget what the flag under
which it is now living looks like.
We, here, on the other hand have
children coming up all round us
who need to be familiarized with
all the symbols of the British Empire, and who cannot too often see
the inspiring red of the ting tloatine,
against the vivid blue of our Canadian sky. We have ;i new population to educate here, and we cannot let any opportunity go. It is
only right that we should insist on
proclaiming our political and imperial allegiance on every possible
occasion. A nation in the making
is in a far different position than a
nation already made, ami whereIrecently
loyal feeling lo the mother country lectures
exists it would nut be :i -ai'i' or a
wise thing to even hint at causing
that loyalty to diminish. Encouragement, interest and appreciation
should be meted out far more lavishly by   the   Imperial   parent to
heaviest. We would also remind
the citizens that as yet nothing has
been done in regard to the establishment of the Revelstoke Fair,
and as this concerns the district as
a whole this all important matter
should not be left to a few who nre
willing and enthusiastic to run, and
then later on to accuse them of
making it the hobby of a clique.
Where matters of public interest
are concerned the people should
not take that as an excuse for calling down his neighbor and casting
insinuations and aspersions on
whatever he does. Surely a public
man can advocate something for
the good of a community without
being reviled and ac.used of trying
to work a graft. If any thing of
importance for the benefit of the
whole community is to be attempted some one is sure to get blamed
for running it with ulterior selfish
motives. Co-operation is the secret
of success in any city and Revelstoke needs a strong reminder in
that direction.

Inspiring Addiess on Provincial
If th. re are any British Columbians
whose faith in the future of their
provinoe ii weak, we would adviee
them to read the inspiring address
made recently hy Mr. A. C. Flunier-
felt hefore tho Canadian Club at
During the course of hia remarks
Mr. Flumcrfelt made the assertion
that Brititdi Columbia haa by nature
been given greater blessings and advantages than those possessed by any
other similar area on the continent.
This is saying a great deal, especially
when it is considered that this continent is the richest both in actual
and potential wealth, on earth.
One bas, however, but to read further in the address to realize tbe force
ol this remarkable statement. Au as
instance of tho wonderful development
which bus taken place in the last fen
years he refers brietly to the lime
when Vancouver City was a dense
forest. With great clearness be very
forcibly presents a review of our immense res ntrc.es in timber, mining
and agriculture, the wealth of our
fisheries and the wonderful possibilities of our fruit resources. He shows
how much the filling up ol the vast
prairie lands of Alberta and Saskatchewan means to B. C, providing a close
and certain market for all our products. It is stated that one firm
alone in Winnipeg are prepared to
contract for a term of years for all that
oan be produced of a certain kind of
apple known as the "Wealthy." In
1901 there were 500,000 fruit trees in
B. C. Today it is estimated tbat there
are over 3,500,000, and also greatly
increased quantities ol small fruit of
every description. In lesa than 10
years British Columbia will be the
greatest fruit producing province in
tbe Dominion.
Tbe present production of wealth in
tin province iB 157,000,000 per annum
and it is increasing at a very rapid
The keynote of the whole address is
inspiring faith in the immediate
future of British Columbia. Everyone
as far as they can should support any
movement or institution tbat will
help build up the Province, whether
general or local.
Tbe prominent men on the coast
are fully alive to the great possibilities
in store for those who take part in the
great developement that is about to
take place. We Bee signs of this in
the companies that are being formed
to further develop the fisheries and the
pulp wood resources, and also more
especially in the  recent  formation of

Revelstoke Amateurs Entertain
Large Audience
Victoria Day festivities were con.
eluded by a gala nigbt at the opera
lionBe, when "Pink Dominoes" a first
rate three-act comedy was produced
by the Revelatoko Amateur Dramatic
Club. The piece was clever and interesting and the big audience was
highly enthusiastic aud appreciative
giving vent to their feelings by cheeis
and applause ut every comical silua-
tion and piece ol comedy.
W. M. Lawrence as Uncle Goodwin
created much amusement and bit
'-night out" at the Metrpolitan evidently "didn't come up to his expec-
tatious." T. E. L. Taylor as George
Decker, as usual was up to the mark
and made tbe moat of his part. D.
M. Rae as Paul Andrews emplified to
a nicety that "men were deceivers
ever," the acting of these two "model
huBbands" being well carried out. W.
A. Sturdy aa Henry followed well the
example of his uncle Mr. Goodwin,
and fell into the trap "ne.ir the little
buffet," very readily. Mrs. W. M.
Lawrence as Mrs. Andrews curried out
her part with her usual vim and vigor
and well portrayed the ever trusting
wife who pins her faith too much on a
tickle husband. Miss White as Mrs.
Decker made a strong character as the
doubting wife and her neatly concoc
ted plan to test their reBpective husbands turned out even better than she
had anticipated. MrB. D. M. Rae
made an excellent Hannah, a model
housemaid, and carried out her part ol
servile'dignity and daring l.,ve of adventure and the delights of a "bal
masque," with excellent care her part
being an extremely difficult une. As
Pomona Fifi, Mrs. F, C. Elliott was
very dainty and oharming and completely captivated old Goodwin, although unfortunately she didu't come
back directly as lie bad fondly hoped.
H. Cunningham Morria aa Philip, the
head llunkey of the Metropolitan,
carried out his party creditably, being
also embroiled iu lhe general mix up
of his society customers. W. J. W.
Brown as Peters looked after the order
department for the guests and had hia
work cut out iu supplying tbe wants
of a lady "who had no appetite," and
her admirer. Mra. VV. A Sturdy as
Aunt Goodwin played a very clever
part, her impersonation of outraged
dignity being well done. The Btage
settings were extremely pretty and
tasteful, and a credit to the ability of
the artist, R. R. Copeland. The restaurant scene was very laughable, the
complicntions and their disclosures
keeping the audience in a continual
ripple of mirth. "Pink Dominoes"
reflects great credit on the amateurs
and Revelstoke will look forward to
another production by this admirable
aggregation of local dramatic talent,
at an early date.
During the entre acts E. M. Cook
secretary of the Y.M.C.A., distributed
tbe va'ious prizes won at tbe sports.
..united States Lumbermen are
Investing in B.C.
While there is much difference of
opinion regarding the immediate future of lumber iu British Columbia, all
are agreed tbat standing timber is a
most valuable commodity. This fact
is brought borne more effectively to
lumbermen of tbe Unit d States than
it is in British Columbia. Tbe temporarily depressed condition of the
lumber market has practically no hearing on the value ol standing trees. In
the United States the forests are becoming rapidly depleted, and millmen
on the other side are turning their attention to British Columbia. At the
present time a small army of United
States prospectors are preparing to go
into the woods. Some of them are already on tbe ground and intend to
commence prospecting at once. One
Wisconsin firm has taken an option on
a British Columbia area of timber
many miles in extent. They will prospect tbe ground thoroughly in May.
This firm states tbat their own limits
are worked out and they must have
timber somewbore. They have decided to buy in British Columbia,
establish mills, and ship to the best
available market. The wise laws ol the
provincial government have resulted
in millions ol United States money
being invested, in this way, in British
Columbia.—Canadian Lumberman.

Instructions How To Keep the
House Pest Down.
To assist iu waging a campaign
against the house fly, the Bureau of
Entomology sends out the f Mowing
"A careful screening of the windows
and doors during tbe summer mouths
with the supplementary use of sticky
fly paper," it says, "is a preventive
measure against house flies known to
every one, and tbere seems little hope
in the near future of much reliel by
doing away with the breeding places.
A single stable in which a horse is
kept will supply house flies for an extended neighborhood. People living
in agricultural communities will probably never be rid of tbe pest, but in
cities, with better methods of disposal
of garbage, aud with the leasening of
the number of horses and stables, the
time may came, and before very long,
when window screens will be discarded
"ll would appear from what we
know of the life history of thecomnion
house fly and Irom what remedial experimentation hae already been carried
on, that it is perfectly feasible for
cities und towns to ao greatly reduce
the numbers of these annoying and
dangerous insects as to render them
of comparatively slight account. The
health departments of most of our
cities have the authority to abate
nuisances dangerous to health, and it
is easy for the health authorities of
any city to formulate rules concerning
tlie construction and care of stables
and keeping and disposal oi manure
which, if enforced, will do awuy with
the houee Ily nuisance."
