The cement sidewalk and building
bylaws were finally passed by the
City council at, a special meeting last,
night and the hitulithie pavement bylaw iB on its last lap. It was given
its third reading and only remains
to be finally passed. The passage of
the building Inlaw was opposed hy
Aid. Bourne and Aid. Pradolini who
voted against it but the sidewalks
bylaw passed unanimously. Aid. McSorley and Aid. Needham voted against the third reading of the hitulithie bylaw and Aid. Bourne, who
dissented, declined to vote.
On motion of Aid. McSorley, seconded by Aid. Bell, it was decided
that the construction of tbe cement
sidewalks should be by contract. Tenders will be asked for the complete
work, although Aid. Needham favored letting the contract in blocks. On
motion of Aid. Smythe it was resolv-
i d that a stipulation will be placed
in the contract providing that rate
payers shall be given the preference
for employment  on the work.
It was decided on Aid. Stnythe's
motion that the grading for the side
walks should be done by the city under the supervision ol the city foreman.
The cement sidewalks will be:
An - foot cement sidewalk
on the north side of Second
street from .McKenzie avenue to and
including the alley between McKenzie
avenue and Orton avenue. A six
foot cement sidewalk on the north
side of First street between the east
side of Wynn street to the west side
of Ford street. The north and south
sides of Third street from the west
side of McKenzie avenue to the east
side of Robson avenue. The north
and south sides of Fourth street between the west side of McKenzie avenue and east  side oi Vernon avenue.
The  west side    t'  l"n     (■
from the south side ol Second street
tee the north side of Third street. The
north side of Third street, from thc
west side of Connaught avenue tothe
east side ol Kootenay street.
The estimated cost of the work is
814,000 of which 85,940 is to be paid
by the corporation. The estimated
special rate per foot frontage is |1.75
The special assessment is to be paid
in  20 annual  instalments.
The estimates were given some discussion, thc police estimates being
generally condemned but the school
estimates were more favorably considered than usual. Mayor McKinnon
said that he did not think that there
was anything in thc school estimates
that could be cut out. Aid. Needham suggested that a saving might
I e affected in fuel by heating and using only half of the high school. Aid.
Bell thought that it would bc advisable for the council to meet thc
School board. The mayor also advocated meeting 'he board if it would
tend      to   remove   ill-feeling.    He  Said
that the school estimates were $400(1
higher than last year and would cost
two mills more, although the people
had heen  told thai   the rate   would
not be higher aftei the new high
school was built lie thought that
the  >luo for fixing  the  -/rounds might
have been provided by doing without
Carpets.      Aid.   McSorley      advocated
meeting the board. He thought that
the people should know what becomes
if  their  money.
Many suggestions for reducing the
) olice estimates were advanced, one
was to disband the police force altogether, another to reduce the force
to two or three men and swear in a
number of special constables und a
third suggestion was to substitute
two or three mounted men for the
present force. Another economy suggested by Aid. Needham was to heat
the city  jail   by  "lectricity.

Wider Imperialism
Destiny of Canada
Rev. J.A. Sheppard entertained the
members and guests of the Womeu's
Canadian club on Monday evening
with a clever and concise resume of
Canadian history. Mr. Sheppard kept
before his audience, always as a central thought, the various inlluences
which have combined throughout the
centuries to mould Canada into her
form of today, both as regards her
geographical outline and her political constitution. Commencing with
her earliest explorers and colonizers
I e sketched briefly the French-Indian
period. The French-English period
followed and the lecturer showed how
the boundaries of the country were
affected by the policy of the government and afterwards during the English-French period, how the constitution grew naturally as a result of a
wise controlling policy which ever
sought to tit, the laws of the land to
the requirements of the people. The
lecturer showed how this policy had
invariably resulted in producing a
contented and patriotic nation, too
well aware of their own satisfactory
condition to be drawn aside into international strife as in the American
war of independence, the war of 1812,
or even the rebellion of 1^17. The
Confederation tct e.f 1867 came as a
natural sequence of thiB policy, and
we have as tune, goes on seen prov-
Ince after province added to this federation, and harmony, peace and
prosperity strengthened year by year
resulting in a Canadian nation comprising the largest self-dependency in
tin- world, aad the largest Anglo-
Saxon, ISnglish-speaklng colony, tbe
"brightest jewel in England's crown"
Three' possible Courses are open to
' our choice for the future, viz., annexation with flu. United States, Independence, or still wider Imperial
ism. . The first we know to be a
lead   issue r..ae.-1'ninc which no argu
ment, is necessary,   In the second we
should   lose     more  than      we should
gain in both liberty and actual expenditure when we consider what
'.■■'s vva .voi'ld acquire for a navy
a standing army or even tor cousulai
service. In wider imperialism, the
lecturer concluded, lay our future
destiny, when Canada will join with
.Australia, New Zealand, India, etc.,
iu common parliament with the neither country. Then we will see Canada's resources developed, a possible
'..'.i percent of agriculture in place of
the present 2' percent, a population
Ol 80,000,000 in place of eight. When
the lecturer concluded Mrs. Sibbald
moved and Mrs. \V. M. Lawrence seconded a vote of thanks. Two notices
■ if motions to he presented at the
next regular meeting of the club were
read, the first by Mrs. Stevenson,
that for election of officers a nominating committee not exceeding four
in number (including thc president)
Ibe appointed. The second proposed

[reshments, Mrs. Sibbald and Mrs.

The  refusal  of the city council    to
pass   an   account   for   furnishings   for

' night  to expressions of  strong  Indig-
I nation at the attitude of tin' council.
'ine   subject   was   introduced   by   W.
' A.  Sturdy who said that he had seen
from  the  Mail-hverald  that  the
I count  had  not been  passed  by      the
A. Kenward suggested that thrt
school board should attend a meeting
of the council and explain matters to
them. Roth H. Manning and Mr.
Sturdy dissented from this proposal.
Mr. Sturdy said that the board had
already approached the council asking them to meet the school board to
discuss the school estimates with a
view to finding if it were possible to
reduce any items. The council had
declined to do so ami still critici
the estimates.
Mr.   Manning declared ti:

The Van Roi, Hewitt, Standard,
Humbler-Cariboo, Slocan Star, Ruth
and Idaho Alamo "have concentrators
ut the mines, states Mr. Taylor, the
smallest of which was constructed at
a cost of over SlOO.flOO.
At Trail, Mr. Taylor paid his first
visit to the smelter of the Consolidated company, which to him was a
revelation. Two now fdrnaces are being installed there, he states, which
when blown in will make a total of
four lead and live copper furnaces for
the plant which will he capable of
treating 1,880 tons of ore daily, the
'majority of which comes from the
Slocan, Rossland, East Kootenay and
Nelson  districts.
During his visit to Trail Mr. Taylor, in con.puny with .lames H. Scho-
lielil,       M.P.P,,   for   Ymir  anil   tl.   M.
Henney, road superintendent drove to
Salmo and Sheet) Creek where the
minister was surprised at tlie amount
of work that was being carried oil
among the mining properties amongst
them the Kineruld and Hudson's Bay.
Kn route to Salmo Mr. Taylor
states that he was greatly impressed
with tlie orchard lands along the
route, particularly at Frultvale and
Columbia Gardens, where every indi-
intion points to 11 bumper crop.
Wlnle in the vicinity of Trail he also
visited the ranch of J. I). Anderson
about eight miles from Trail on the
Trail-Nelson road where, besides the
1."' acres set out in fruit trees arc to
l.e found some 300 or 100 acres rendy
to be planted. A visit was also paid
to the ranch of Mr. Perdue Where indications point, says the minister, to
11  heavy  yield.
in company with Lome A. Campbell, M.P.P., and .lames II. Scho-
lield, M.P.P., and Mr. Henney,' Mr.
Taylor visited Rossland and went over the Rossland-Northport road as
far as Patterson. A trip was made
along the Stoney creek road and a
visit paid to the Centre Star mine
and in the mind of the minister things
have not looked as prosperous around
Rossland for a long time. Everybody
is optimistic,  he said, and  is  looking
forward with confidence to the future.

The average cost of a macadamized
city Street flOfl wide aud torn distance of inOO ft., compared with a
hard surface pavement which pavement is to be known and tried as a
permanent construction to be guar -
anteed lor a number of years is as
follows, says Good Roads-
The original construction of a
macadamized street done in a
lirst class manner, provided the
supply of rock to be used, is
within a distance of two miles
or less for the above stated area
is   85,200
The scraping ofl the accumulating mud, removal of accumulating grass, etc., alongside
the gutter, etc., for a period of
3U   years  will   be     , $1,01")
The maintenance of such au
area over a period of 20 years
will require a redressing for at
least every second year with 11
thick redressing of fine rock,
mixed with } of sticky clay, to
- ■■ rolled With a heavy steam
roller 226 cub. yds. for every
second year including all labor
nnd    roller    service,    etc  !<7,:!16
To sprinkle this area each
year with a heavy coat of crude
oil, to prevent the accumulating dust ns a Bourse of annoyance to the abutting residents
of such street will be > per
square yard for a period of 20
years     $2,-_J2
Total expenses for a period of
20  years   $15,738
The original cost of a permanent
construction of a hard surfaced pavement which can be guaranteed for a
number of years, tor an area as stated above will be from $13,090 to $15-
Comparing these figures, which are
based on the actual and detailed cost
o! such maintenance, the fact must be
taken into consideration, that for a
period of at least three months in
the year, a macadamized street will
still show a :-, Id surface, and such
:* a natural condition which cannot
be avoided,
To keep a macadamized street clean
from the constant i cumulation of
manure droppings and filth, which
be dune by ordinary sweeping
. without injuring the macadamized surface itself, will cost twin-
as much,as the ordinary sprinkling
and sweeping process on the average
of twice a week ou a bard surface
street for a period of seven months
in a year.
The oiling of macadamized streets, '
is a great relief from Hying dust, but
is also a great source of inconven -
ience and annoyance for four weeks
after sprinkling on account of the
sticky substance to be carried on tbe
walks and also in the ■ say.
nothing about unpleasant smell caused by evaporation ol the oil.
The life of a fairly well constructed
macadamized street, without keeping
them systematically In repair, will be
■ •'.;.• six years. After which period,
such street will be in such a condition, that ripping up tbe surface and
.'. partly new reconstruction Is necessary.

Score   Game Proves Fast
and Interesting
One of the best amateur gumes of
baseball wns played Monday evening
when the Businessmen clashed with
the Heavers. In the second Innings
the Heavers made 15 runs which
brought Manager McRae to make scv-
iral changes in his line up, by taking
Corsan out of the box and placing
Cocracb In. This did not steady the
players so the manager stopped into
the box himself, thus getting control
Of his men. With a little more practice Kenny would become one of the
besi pitchers in the amateur league.
The Delivers are improving with the
strong man (Samson) in the box and
Mac the catcher. The game finished
•.■.ith the score of Is to * in favor of
the  Reavers.

Tbe baseball game last night on tbe
R. Y.M.C.A. grounds between the firn
mil and the C.P.R. teams resulted in
.  uin for the former of 11 to 3.
Tonight the C.P.R. clash with tbe

Through the etlorts of L. W. Shat-
lord, M.P.P., a valuable addition,
both to local coverts and to local
waters will be made in the form of a
consignment of Hungarian partridg-
■ p for tbe former, and a large shipment of trout fry for tbe latter,
-ays the Penticton Herald. The Hungarian partridges which will arrive in
the course of a few days are one of
the gamest and most prolific of the
partridge family, and have been a
great success in Alberta where they
were introduced some years ago. The
two million or more trout fry which
will be plnced in the lake is more for
the purpose of improving the stock
in these waters rather than of increasing it.
Tbe attendance at the meeting of
the Golden Civil Rifle association on
Monday evening was not large enough to allow of any business being

"The game at Revelstoke between
Revelstoke and Kamloops yesterday,
caused had feeling and strong com- j
ment ns well as decisive action" says
the Kamloops Inland Sntincl. "Rev. '
elstoke was the victor by 3 runs to
2, but the Kamloops men were so
dissatisfied with the umpire's decisions thnt they have lodged a protest
against them."
"Kamloops has no kick coming at
all," said a Revelstoke baseball fan
when shown the above statement. "In
one ense the umpire gave a Revelstoke man out when he was clearly
safe, but Revelstoke did not kick,"
he said. "A team tbat allows its
captain to use strong language to
them so that he can be heard by •
ladies in the grand stand, bas a
good deal to learn about sports- ]

One of tbe most diverting storiee
of recent local happenings has reference to a contest widely advertised by word of mouth between a bull
dog and a badger to bc held in one
of the hotel yards at Kamloops says
the Standard. So assiduously was
interest fostered in this event that
at thc appointed hour some hundreds
of people are said to have gathered
together to witness tbe sport. A
staw covered barrel with rope protruding occupied one corner of the
yard, and in another the canine wonder displayed bis charms and ferocity
The procedure was carefully explained and to a well-known local sportsman and motorist was entrusted the
task of drawing the badger from his
ietreat in the barrel to face the dog.
This hero thereupon valiantly seized
the rope and amid terse silence and
with an effort that would have
brought a leviathan from the vasty
deeps jerked from the barrel an old
piece of crockery before the eyes of
the assembled crowd.
The discomfited hero joined thc rest
of those present in ringing  laughter.

Under normal conditions present production would not be sutllcient to
keep pice with the demand for the

a steady increase of production from

Is the Pay Roll of the City of Revelstoke to increase or decrease ? You
will unhesitatingly acknowledge that a local Newspaper is essential to a
growing city. It is the best advertiser for the city that it could possibly
have. Have you, Mr. Revelstoke Merchant, realized the vast number of
eastern catalogues that have arrived in your city since the advent of
the parcels post system ? Have you grasped the meaning of this attempt
to kidnap the business which is rightfully yours ?
What are you doing to counteract tMs encroachment of the man from
the East ? Your remedy lies in the lecal newspaper. Have you sufficient
faith in the articles you Eell to tell the people about them ! Of course
you have, therefore you must advertise your goods. Let the MAIL-
HERALD perform the duties of a salesman—it will be a good investment
for you !
Look after your own townspeople and those in the surrounding country.
The MAIL-HERALD goes far and wide, is eagerly looked for, is positively demanded. Thc subscription list ircreases daily. Your announcements
in the MAIL-HERALD will be looked upon with absolute dependence. It
ie your medium. Support the MAIL-HERALD and you will not find it
wanting in its assistance to make Revelstoke a city of sound and remunerative business for its merchants. The MAIL-HERALD haB a big
pay roll—advertisements are the life blood of the paper. Keep that pay
roll for Revelstoke, allow it to circulate here. Send your money away
r.nd it never comes back; spend it at the MAIL-HERALD office and you
will get a dozen chances at it during the course of a year.

The Canada Gazette contains notice of some important changes In cbJ
fisheries regulations of British Columbia. I'p to the present the export of fresh herring has been prohibited, the object of tbis regulation
being to prevent herring being exported     to     be converted    Into fish
I scrap and oil. Recently a demand
! as arisen in the United States for
fresh herring in small packages, packed in ice. The new regulations Will,
therefore, allow the export of    fresh
' herring packed in boxes containing
not more than 200 pounds. Another
change provides that no one shall
fish with nets or with any implement
