UP MOUNT
REVELSTOKE
By the Lindmark Trail-Attractions ot Its Natural Parks
Destined to be One of the
Most Popular Resorts
The Lindmark trail which gives
convenient access to the summit of
Ml. Hevelstoke has been a favorite
resort Ibis Bummer, several bundled
citizens and tourists having travelled
to take in the beauties of nature observable only on the summits of the
mountains. The trail starts at the
C.P.K. .section house wesi of McKen/.ie
Avenue. A large si^n placed there,
similar to that at Lilian station,
drawing attention to its .starting point,
for Lake Louise, would do much to
advertise and popularise the resort
among tourists and visitors to tbe
city, and it would be well if this stig.
gestion were adopted by another
season.
Well, leaving lhe city, the trail
/.i^-'/.iiKS by a fairly   easy grade   up the
mountain to the Brat summit for a
distance of four miles. The view of
the city and its surroundings is a feature of the trip well worth observing,
The buildings and streets give a pretty
chccki-i'-boai'd effect. Tbe gardens in
the village settlement to the west
FOKM A I'IIA KM I Nti SIHNK,
with their regular squares, and we
have never seen anything more beautiful and Interesting than >he scene
that lies as it were at one's feet. Tben,
iu the background, the Columbia
river, witb its broad ami irregular
waterway, and the s.s. Kevelstoke as
the writer saw it skifling as it were
aloug its waters antl leaving behind
a long trail of smoke; Williamson's
Lake, with the glory of the green
forest, reflected in its crystal waters:
the lllecillewaet Kiver gracefully curving ils way to the Columbia, and
behind all, rising in their majesty, Mis.
McArthur, Begbie, McKenzie, dirtier,
make the scene one of never-ending
interest till the first summit is reached
hy the big white rock visible from the
city. The distance of trail traversed
between the city and tbis rock is three
miles and the elevation of thesummit
here is 8,460 feet.
TUB KlUST MILE  POST
stands at au elevation of 875 feet above
the railway track and the trail to this
point is the steepest part of the climb.
We made tbis point thirty minutes
after starting out.
The mountain side traversed by the
trail is strewn with llie remains of a
burnt forest now becoming hidden by
the dense growth of young trees. In
time past the south slope of Mount
Kevelstoke must have been covered
with a magnificent forest destroyed by
the vandalism of tire probably aliout
construction days. The result shows
the necessity of adopting the most
stringent measures against a recurrence of such Hies, as it takes many
years for tbe growing trees to replace
the forests that preceded them, and
the value of Mt. Kevelstoke as a scenic
resort would sillier greatly by the
further ravages of Hie.
From the one-mile post the glade
becomes much easier. This passed,
the trail wends its way through
gardens of huckleberries, and one
wishes the day was longer or that
an earlier start had been made so that
there might he an opportunity of
gathering this cooling and luscious
wild fruit which here grows to such
large size antl is so prolific. Here, too,
beautiful mountain llowers, which
have delayed Iheir blooming, come
into view, and their coloring shows
strikingly against the dense green
foliage of the balsam and the pine,
Ferns, too, nestle in the shale of the
rocks.
From the lirst, summit the trail
wends ils way along an old stream-
bed dry at lhe lime of the trip. In
this basin is
tut \ss LAKE
a shallow, grassy pond, Now the
park-like beauties of the mountain
summit come inlo view. The balsam
and spruce, with their rich green,
contrast with the clear spaces intervening and covered with a wealth of
native grass, wild Mowers, pea-vine
and lupin. Ahead on the trail stands
out
MACDONALD BLUFF,
so named after the popular alderman
of the cily, who was one of the first to
exploit and make known the beauties
mid attractions of lhe summit of Mt.
RevelBtoke. Macdonald Bluff is a
point from which a magnificent view
can lie got. It is four miles out on the
I rail and from its eminence is seen the
Columbia Kiver like a silver thread
traversing the valley below, and extending Its length dimly into the sea
of mountains till lost iu the beyond.
(In all sides lines nf snow and ice-clad
peaks, following as it were wave on
wave behind one another come iuto
view,     Great  icefields stretch thejr
hoary lengths along the high ridges
and from these giddy heights extend
tbe white streaks of foaming streams
that speed their waters to the Columbia Kiver.
The trail wends its way around McDonald Bluff, following the valley of
an old siccan, Iill
PROTECTION I.AKK
breaks on the scene, its glistening
waters reflecting the shadows of the
spruce and balsam trees lhat dot ils
shores, At the east, end of the lake is
the   chalet   built   Ihis   season for the
accommodation of tourists, (iiussy,
park-like areas, prettily bordered by
clumps of   trees,   stretch mil, Inmi the
lakeand make lovely camping grounds,
rivalling   the   far-fainetl parks of   old
England,
A depression to the Wesi of the hike
affords
A MAGNIFICENT VIKW
of the Columbia Valley, wbile rising
from ils shores to the north-west is a
rocky hill as if destined by nature to
be the look-out point from which llie
visitor may take in at a glance the
beauties of the scene on all sides.
To the north is an open stretch of
richly grassed lands affording splendid
grazing grounds for tho pack or saddle horses accompanying parties to
the summit. The elevation here is
probably 0,51MI feet above sea level.
Tbe summit of Mount Kevelstoke is
clear of snow in June, when the
growth of vegetation and wild Mowers
is marvellous. While unit pink heaths
dot the ground. This part of the
summit is to be steu at its besi in
August, but it is as a rule accessible to
tourists from the middle of .lune till
the lirst or second week in October.
For tlie rest of the year il is buried
deep in snow.
A mile further north a magnificent
view is obtained of
MILLER PARK,
so named after A. E. Miller, then head
master of the city schools and who
spent his summer holidays in exploration work on tbis mountain. This
paikisone of the prettiest scenes to
lie iinitiil in the mountains. It is a
far-stretching grassy sward, gently
sloping and dotted with pretty clumps
of trees among which are acres of
lupins and other Bowers. Miller's
Park should be visited by all visitors
to Mt. Kevelstoke. It extends to a
point three miles beyond Protection
Lake.
Noith-east of Miller's Park is
EIGHT MILE CHEEK
and its tributaries. Tbis creek drains
the glacier on the west side of Mt.
Olach-na-cooden, two miles further on
to the north-east. At the foot of this
mountain nestle several beautiful
lakes as Miller's lake, Eva Luke, and
Alfred lake, forming attractive spots
of visit for the tourist. A trail should,
however, be marked out from the
chalet at Protection lake to Miller's
lake.
The mountains around
MT. <LA('ll-NA-ll)llllEN
furnish some good climbing, and if the
visitor wishes, an interesting trip may
be made across the divide to Laforme
Creek, down the trail to Nineteen
Mile, and by sseamer to Kevelstoke.
In fact it would he well if the Lindmark trail up Mt. Kevelstoke could be
eatended to connect with the government system of trails on Laforme
Creek, which point tourists could conveniently make in one day from Kevelstoke, returning the next day via the
Big Bend trail and liight Mile Falls,
or by steamer as desired,
If the scheme to build a scenic railway to the summit, should develop, it
would make Mt. Bevelstoke one of the
most popular of national parks, and
bring to this city thousands of tourists
yearly.

Let a progressive Hevelstoke
brush away the barnacles ami cobwebs that obstruct the onward
movement and forge ahead to
higher and better things.

ui Revelstoke's citizens are opposed
to tbe proposed improvements to

cost the city * 130,000 and is its
beet revenue-producer. Is the large
amount of capital already put into
that plant to  be  lott   to  the city
Revelsloke has reached tlie day
of bigger things. The development
of the city demands that the men
of picayune ideas shall retire to tlie
background, and that the city shall
forge ahead by the life, energy,
public spirit and broad, progressive ideas oi its best citizenship.
Now is the time for all good citizens to rally to the support of the
City Council in their policy of
effecting such improvements to the
power plant as shall enable the
city to meet the growing demands
upon it, for Revelstoke cannot
afford to stand still.
Following up our suggestion for
an improved water supply for the
city by next spring a correspondent
advises us the ollicial distance
between Greely Croek and the
C. P. R. station at Revelstoke is
5.4 miles, showing the distance to
be shorter than from Eight Mile,
besides being a much less costly
locution for laying a water supply
service. Our correspondent also
points out the railway elevation at
Greely Creek is lOUO feet, whereas
aB Revelstoke station it is 1500 ft.,
a difference in elevation of 190 ft,,
thus giving ample iall and pressure
between the mouth of Greely Creek
and the reservoir site. Jf higher
elevation and full are required
these can be got by going up the
creek n short distance to the fulls.
CARELESS FRUIT INSPECTION
The Dominion and Provincial
governments spend a large sum
yearly in the inspection of imported
fruit and fruit trees with a view to
keeping out of British Columbia
tlio pests that curst- otlier fruitgrowing countries. This inspection
work is notoriously badly done
however. Recently we saw a shipment of apples imported into Revelstoke in which the fruit was full
of cod lin moth. A few days ugo
we .-aw ii shipment oi peaches, apparently from California, which
was also in a bad state from the
same pest. Vet Uiis fruit had
passed tlie inspectors and was i; -
parently freely admitted, when it
should have been destroyed. If
such carelessness continues in fiuit
inspection at the Coast and other
point.- of import, the time
far distant when tlie fruitgrower"
of this province will have a serious
problem befure them in lighting
these pests which bave proved ihe
bugbear of tlie f;i-ti-rn aivl i ui
fornia fruit-grower,
eigner a premium to break that
standard as is being tloni- under
the existing administration of tin-
law.
THE HOME BUYER
AND MERCHANT
Patrons of eastern department
stores might nsk themselves how
much Timothy lOnton or Simpsons
contribute to the churches of Revelstoke? Kor how much did these
firms set their names down on the
Labor day and fair subscription
lists ? How much do they contribute to local charities ? When
there has been it strike or shortage
of work how much credit have they
given Revelstoke patrons to tide
them over the trying times V
The merchants of RevelBtoke
have stood time and again behind
many of those who send their cash
to Eaton nnd Simpson, and who
give the home merchant the credit
end of their business, No man will
admit ihis is fair, and we believe
that much of tho department store
trade that goes from this city is
due to thoughtlessness rather than
a full and fair consideration of the
mutter. If the local buyer can be
assured that, with few exceptions,
goods can be bought as cheaply in
Revelstoke us at Timothy Eaton's
when expenses, freight and quality
are considered, we believe DO per
cent of those who order from the
foreign merchant would rather buy
at home, where they have the advantage of seeing what they get
and selecting for themselves, besides haviug I lie privilege of returning goods in case they are unsuitable. In the other case they must
be satisfied with what the foreign
merchant ordepartmentstore semis
them.
In lost issue we referred to in-
stances which had come under our
notice where tlie actual comparison
of prices between Revelstoke and
Vancouver showed the prices in
our own town to be lower ti an at
the Coast. The reasons for this nre
very evident. Rent, taxes and
expenses are much higher nt the
Coast than hen- and the Vancouver
merchant must charge a nigher
profit to enable him to live ami pay
his wav.
wagon roatl from tlie head of navigation at Laporte to the turn of
thn Rig Bend at Canoe River. Then
teams and wagons oould be put on
und large quantities of freight
easily handled between Revelstoki!
und the various creeks tributary to
tlm steamboat route or to the wagon
road.
lt is dillicult to calculate what
bus been Inst In Revelstoke by the
delay in constrnoting a roadway
into the Big Bend', i'he loss is
Inoalouable, We need only mention the cuse of Smith Creek, where
Mr. (liiffy 0111111- in hero prepared
to invest, on behalf of American
capitalists $200,000 in a hydraulic
plant to operate on that creek, bul
was obliged to abandon bis plans
for want of transportation. The
same difficulty has seriously bumpered limber investments in the Big
Bend, as the lirst thing that bus
struck the proposed investor bus
boon the difficulty and exorbitant
cost of transportation. Mr. Bradley
fur Instance, offered Go, per Ib, foi
packing freight from Downie Creek
to French Creek, when the rate
formerly paid for the same service
was ilo. por lb., and oven then he
was unable to got tho work done.
This is it condition of things that
must be remedied if tho north
country is to be developed witli
vigor and success.

LABOR'S CALL
Labor in Canada-Labor Day
Speech by Hon. C. Murphy
Hpealnng at the Labor l)«j eelebra
tion at London, (Int., Hon. Chas.
Murphy, Secretary of Slate, Bald:
"There an.- two departments of tbe
Government which have the industrial
life of the country under their immediate supervision. The Department ol
Trade and Commerce is primarily engaged iu facilitating the disposal ol
goods ol Canadian production. The
Department ol Labor tin lhe other
hand concerns itself directly with the
manifold problems which arise between the employer and employee
during the process ol production. The
former naturally comes chiefly into
contact with the employer while the
latter deals chielly with the employee,
and it is therefore with 1 he latter tlmt.
1 would like to say a bnel word.
"The recognition of the cluiniH of
labor to special ctinsidei'iilion Irom the
Government was of comparatively
slow growth in this country. We had
commissions of investigation into labor
questions Irom time to time, ending
with a very elaborate ami prolonged inquliy in 1HHII. I have never been
able to find out exactly what cume of
them. It was not until Sir William
Mtilock established in 1900 a special
Department of Labor 1 but the much
inery was created whereby the Gov
eminent could give proper and continuous attention to labor questions.
The rapid growth and expansion of
the department since tben Ib familiar
to all. It is sale to say that there is
now no department oi the Government
whose activities are better known to
the people at large. 1 am nut going
to detain you with any accnui.t of the
process by which the department
attained to that position, but I would
like very briefly to recapitulate what
the department is engaged in doing
today
H)H SETTLEMENT Ol- STRIKES,
"1. It has evolved very large and
ix ensive machinery, uml placed the
sume at the disposal of the public, for
the purpose uf facilitating the settlement of strikes and lock-outs. Its
work in this connection ij known
throughout the length antl lireiitith of
Canada. lt is impcissible here and
now to describe this machinery or to
refer to ita results, llie enough to
say tbat during the twu years that
have elapsed Bince the Lemieux act
came into force over sixty sirikes have
been prevented, with peif.ot satisfaction to all the parties concerned. The
saving effected ttierebv is probably to
be estimated in millions l'hia legislation, which may justly claim to be
unique of ite kind, bas excited interest throughout the entire industrial
world. We have had special commissioners looking into its manner of
working from Great Britain, the United States and Mexico. Imitation,
they Bay, iB the sinctrest lorm ot
flattery, and several States of Un-
American Union, ae well ae New South
Wales and the Transvaal, are placing
similar legislation on their statute
books. Canada is not given to boasting, but we think an achievement like
thatiseomethingof winch tube proud,
AN  lNOUSTRIAL   CURON10LE.
'2. The department publishes in
the Labor Ga/.ette a detailed industrial
chronicle covering the whole of Canada from mouth to month. The Gazette contains the latett statistics with
reference to all subjects of interest to
labor, such as trade disputes, industrial accidents, immigration, etc , etc.
The latest publications oi importance
Irom au industrial or labor standpoint
are reviewed, and a BUnimary given of
recent legal decisions affecting labor,
as wall as result!- uf numerous special
investigations conducted by the de
partmeut. Every city in the Dominion has a correspondent to 1 he Gazette
and the department is biought in this
way into close touch with every stc
tion ol Canada. The Gazette is sold
for twenty cents a year, and thiB mere
by nominal charge places it within the
reach uf every wage-earner in ihe land.
PAIR WAQE   LAW
(8) The lair wagea resolution of
1900, which requires that a fair wage
schedule be iiiB=ried in every contract
awarded by the Government, iB administered by the department, two
special officers being constantly employed in the preparation uf the
schedules and their enforcement.
(I) One ol the chief functions of
the department is to supply information uf au expert character on all
questions appertaining to labor. In
this connection an extensive collection
ol publications has been brought together antl classified.   The department
bas a heavy correspondence with tlie
general public in answer to Inquiries
on economic anil industrial anlijectB.
In addition, sh yuu are aware, it has
conducted several Important inquiries
under commiasion into tpieatious such
as Oriental immigration, conditions in
certain industries or in certain sections
ol the country. In short, it has been
a standing organisation (or the education ul the peuple on labor questions
and the dissemination of knowledge,
the lack of which is among the most
fitiitfiil sources ol uiiHunderBtaiidings
in the industrial world.
In closing Mr. Murphy spoke uf the
appointment uf Mr. Mackenzie King
as lirst Minister ol Labor as still further evidence of tlio Government's
great interest in labor, and cloeed
amid loud applauae with the words:—
" The Guvernment itself aocurdingly
may be Baid to be celebrating tbis
Labor Day in a unique manner; it ia
the first time that the Government
has ever been able on tbis the national
holiday ol labor to Bend its message to
the working people ol Canada through
a department and a portfolio especially dedicated tu the interests ot labor."

THE FRUITGROWER
J. Maley's Garden and Orchard-
Improvements Being Made
J. Maley's garden on the Big Bend
road ie one of the show places ol Revelstoke. This season considerable
improvements have been effected.
Since building his new house, Mr.
Maley has removed the former log
building and has laid out thu front to
sow to lawn, with llower beds inter-
spersed. lu these llower beds Mr.
Maley intends planting 11 lot of bulbs
this fall for early spring lluwering.
His lied of astera this season was a
sight, the four varieties of comet asters,
forming one of the prettiest arrays of
bloom one could \vinh to see. Carnations, wallflowers, foxglove, hollyhocks
are strongly in evidence.
His apple trees are loaded with
fruit, the Wolff River variety doing
particularly well, and showing a heavy
bearing of large, brightly colored
apples. l'luniB have also done well.
His tomato crop was a wonder. Frnm
a small piece of ground carrying 17"i
vines be sold -$n0 of tomatoes and has
still liOO to 700 lbs. of this fruit loft to
market.
Asked hiB opinion ub to the pros-
pectB of Revelstoke lor fruit-growing
Mr. Maley considers that this section
can probably he made a hig strawberry producer. He recommends tbe
Koyal Sovereign variety very strongly
His opinion in this mutter carries
weight as be lived iu a part of England where Ihey shipped 2(1,000 pecks
ol strawberries a week to the Manchester market.
Then agiio there are aome varieties
ol apples that will tin better here than
anywhere else he knows ol.      Duchess
appears to be one ol these.    Graven-
Stein wiil not iu hia opinion, prove a
suitable variety bore iih it doesn't
aland trust well.
Mr. Malay's greenhouses are in good
shape, though Ile has disposed uf most
of bis season's Htock of house and pot
plants.
