Wing- President Re-Elected
Tbe eighth annual general meeting
ol the Revelstoke Hospital Society
was held in tlie City Hall Wednesday
evening. There were present Messrs.
Kilpatrick (chairman), Lawrence, McCarter, Hooley, Siue, McLennan, Kincaid, Gordon, tloble, Lefeaux, Dr.
Sutherland and Armstrong,
Tbe financial statement presented
by W. D, Arnistruug, secy.-treasurer,
was satisfactory iu I lint it shown!
increasing business and a balance of
receipts over expenditure of $2,335.13.
Tne receipts.were made up principally
of cuutracts, government Bubsidy and

.$13,103.50, pay patients contributed
a total ol 12,683.80, uf wbicli $161.60
was contributed from Arrowhead The
government Buusidy was $3,07515.
The hospital box ul (ilacier contributed $10 50 and $02 35 was alao
received from subscriptions. The
balance, made up ol intere.t, cash in
band, etc.. brougbl tbe total receipts
up to $21,073 56.
The total expenditure was $18,7 18.-
43, ol which the principal item was

president's report
The President, T. Kilpatrick, presented the followiug report.
Gentlemen,—1 have much pleasure
in presenting f >r your approval and
adoption the eighth annual report of
this society.
It will not be necessary to go deeply
into the altiairs ol the society at this
time, as tbe Financial Statement,
llulance Bluet and Medical Superintendent's Report will give a very accurate idea of the work accomplished.
Although last year was considered a
bard year for the hospital, this bus
been still harder in the tailing off ol
receipts Irom both pay and contract
patients. This no doubt has been
largely due to the dullness in the lumber industry, and tbe financial depression ol last winter. Still, 1 think the
society is to be congratulated on the
fact, that, we Iiud ourselves at the end
of the hospital year with a substantial
balance to our credit.
The balance in bank at the end of
July is $8,385 and tbe sum ot $3400
owing to the society, (and which no
doubt will very soon be paid in) and
no outstanding liabilities. There has
been no complaint of our service fur
the past year.
The brick addition to the ljueen
Victoria Hospital now well uuder con
structiou and to be ready lor occupancy by the 30th of November, will
be a very handsome and substantial
structure, and although from the way-
it is laid out it may look a little odd,
it bas been so built to cnolorm with
the plan for a complete hospital building (sdeedsly to be built we hope) and
to take tbe place ol the woodeu building now in use.
We derire to thank moat heartily
lor their kiud grant ol $8000, and the
Hon. Thoe. Taylor who has been
largely instrumental in oblaining this
for us. This Bum with the money in
hand will enable ub to complete our
building and furnish it without going
into debt. We also very sincerely
thank our contract palronB lor tl eir
prompt payments.
In conclusion, 1 wish to thank the
members of the board sitting with me
lor the pa§t year, (or their hearty anil
enthusiastic energy. To the members
ol our medical and nursing stall tor
their loyal attention to duty, and to
the various citizens, (including tKe
Corporation of this ciiy, for the free
use ut this meeting room) and lor the
support and assistance ihey have been
over ready tu give us.
li was moved by Mr. McCarter, etc

Spiral Tunnels Between field and Hector
Should Open Nexl Week
J, E. Bohwilzer, assistant chief engineer uf lhe C.I'.R. with headquarters
in Winnipeg, who passed through here
u lew duys ago, made the announcement that the spiral tunnels between
Hector and Field will open tor trallic
during the coming week, probably
about next Thursday. When Una is
accomplished the old I I per cent
grade on the big bill al Field will be
abandoned lor all lime, the tunnels
reducing it to about 2 per cent. The
change will reduce the cost of operating, inoreaie   speed   and  do much to
facilitate trallic on the transcontinental line, of which the Field hill wiib by
far the heaviest grade.
Concurrently with this announcement comes a report that seems to
have Boine foundation that the C.l'.K.
■hops will be moved Irom Laggan to
Field, the hitler becoming the divisional point hetween the Mountain-
SliiiBwup and Field-Calgary sections
of the road. This will bring Ihe railway buiinesi Irom the east a little
nearer Kevelstoke nud within the
boundaries ol liritish Columbia, sn
that this city should receive some
benelit frum it.

iSATrRDAY, AUGUST 21, 190!'
lu tbe Order-in-Council contained in tlie latept issue ol the
H. (J. ilayette there are out or two
matter:- of especial importance to
thic district.   One provision reads;
That the disabilities with respect
to the shooting of grouee ol all
kind? lexcept prairie chicken), with
respect to the mainland (except
ead and west Kootenay), and the
is-land? adjacent thereto shall Le
removed from the Loth day of
October to the glit of December,
1009, both days inclusive." So far
as we can interpret it this menus
that the shooting uf grouse in
Kootenay Irom tbe middle of
October to tbe end of December is
prohibited, while it is allowed in
every other part of the province.
The authorities may possibly have
some good reason fur this, but we
should like to hear it explained.
It wiii l>e observed that the shooting of prairie chicken during that
period l- permitted so that we can
imagine that the game wardens
will have a rather dillicult duty to
perform, since the keen Hportsmuii
in his excitement, will naturally
think every grouse he bccs is a
prairie chicken. Apart Iroui tbis
if the idea is to save the grouse in
tbis district from extinction, the
provision is a worthy one.
Another recent regulation forbids
the killing ol bull   0 BO    OUlh ul
the   52nd parallel, pyoept iu tho
Columbia Klectoral District, till
August 31, 1011. Why the Columbia district should be so favored is
not explained, but it is presumed
that moose is more plentiful in
that district than in other parts.
Be that an it may the prohibition
should prove no great obstacle to
big game hunters starting out from
Revelstoko, because the 52nd degree of latitude cuts just across the
northern end of the Big Bond, so
that it seems that all that would
be necessary is to take the steamer
as far as possible up the river, and
then either porlage at Death Rapids
or take tho trail till the northern
bend of the river is reached, when
tho hunter will be safely within
the open bull moose country. The
season for shooting moose is from
September 1, to December 31.
The regulations issued by the
provincial game warden from time
to time, show at least that the
Provincial Government is dealing
with the preservation of game in a
thorough and painstaking manner.
This is ns it should be, for its game
is one of the best assets of British
Columbia. Hedged about by the
mountains, riven by streams and
shaded with forests, the province is
a great natural game preserve.
More and more it is becoming the
haunt of the sportsman and tourist. The hunter is the explorer
and pathfinder, who discovers new
beauties and makes easier the road
for the tourist or Nature lover who
follows him. Big game hunting
especially will draw to the country
men of prominence from all parts
uf tin- world, who will be better
able to advertise the merits of lhe
province than anyone else. Vox
these reasons the government and
the game wardens are to In commended iur the care tbey have
shown in prohibiting the destruction of game in sections where it is
becoming scarce and fur the general
prohibition of the shooting of
female deer and big game and
mountoin Bheep; thus providing
for their continuance in future.
be fou id that the educationists
themselves nearly all favor centralisation. It enables the teachers
more readily to exchange ideas and
profit by each other's methods.
Apart from that it should prove
better for the future of the town.
Educate the children of the western
portion in one building and those
of the eastern portion in another,
and you are very apt to foster a
sectional feeling from the start.
More prejudices are created, more
ware are started by isolation than
this world knows of. If children
or adults are allowed to mingle
freely they realize their common
humanity and sectional prejudices
are dissolved. We believe, therefore, that a movement to centralize
education in Revelstoke will lead
to more efficient teaching at present
and to greater unity in the years
when these school children shall
have become men and women.
This is of course only one phase
of the bylaws so soon to be presented to the ratepayers here. They
will confer other advantages that
need not he dwelt upon at this
time, but the fact that they will
provide ground for a future centralization of education is in itself
sullicient to justify their endorsa-
lion. We are glad to see that in
the petitions for the resubmission
of the bylaws, the school trustees
have so far received hearty support
from the ratepayers, more than
double the necessary number of
nlines having readily been signed.
This should be followed by
double the necessary majority to
carry the bylaws at the poll. If
it is we do not think the ratepayers

I Joint Passenger Depnt for Four Transcontinental Railroads in Vancouver
The Ureal Northern Railway Co.,
acting through its aecredited agents,
has submitted to the Vancouver City
Council a proposal that may result, in
the establishment in that city ol one
ol the biggest joint railway terminals
on the continent. The proposal made
by Mr. Oillani, of the Great
Northern, is that, the city co
operate with them in obtaining possession by expropriation of Isnil at
the eastern end ol Kit Ine Creek necessary to complete terminal arrangements, the Great Northern will then
Iill in HI acres ol the foreshore, leaving
the city a strip ol land bordering on
the wilier which they may use lor
wharfage and for the tilling in ol
which Ihey will repay ihe railw y
company at cost. This heing done,
the Great Northern company will
luiilil a huge union passenger depot
to be used jointly by the Great North
em, the Northern I'acilic, llie Grand

More bread and Better bread]
 And the Reason for it
*» be made from strong wheat.
Manitoba bard wheat is acknowledged the strongest in the world—
and that is tbe kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Kvery 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 bard
wheat through a process so exacting
that not a single low-grade part
bas the remotest chance of getting
in with tbe high-grade.
Of course this apecial process is
more expensive to operate hut it
means a l"t to Purity flour users—
that's why we use it.
It means that Purity Flour is
made entirely of the highest-grade
flour parts of the strongest wheat
in the world.
It means a high-class, strong flour
and therefore yields "more bread
and better bread."
Turity may cost a little more
than aome flours, but results prove
it the cheapest aud most economical after all.

An interesting account of the recent
meet of the Alpine Club at Lake
O'Haa is given by Rev. J. R. Robertson wbo, with J. P. Forde, acted as
assistant guide to Prof. A. O. Wheeler.
The camp made its rendezvous at
Hectoj at tbe summit of the Kicking
Horse Pass, though tbe camp itself
was situated at Lake O'Hara, eight
miles south of Hector. The altitude
of the camp, 6,664 feet waa the highest yet selected. It was on open
ground surrounded by balsam and
pine trees, and was a charming spot
for camping purposes. The camp
lasted from August 2 to 9, and the
number of people under canvas there
during that time waB 188, by far the
largest number tbat has yet attended.
The actual membership of the Alpine
club is now nearly 500.
The mountain that was used for
graduating members thia year wae
Mount Huber with an altitude of
11,041 feet, lt was tbe most difficult
mountain yet selected for initiating
new members, but in spite ol tbat 5li
reached the summit and thus became
full Hedged members ol the club. A
few others also climbed it alter tbe
camp had closed. No accident of any
kind happened, aud after the fatal
occurrence of a year ago thiB was considered particularly gratifying. A
number of special cii.ubs were also
made such as the ascent ol Mount
Biddle, one of the parties to climb
this being Mr. Forde of Revelstoke.
Mount Victoria waa climbed by ai •
other party, and a second ascent was
made of Mount Hungabee. These are
all practically 11,000 feet summits.
A novel excursion was made io tbe
form of a two days' trip whioh covered
five passes and brought to view some
of the wildest scenery in the Rockies.
The Rev. Mr. Robertson had the privilege of acting as guide to one or two
parties that went over Abbott's Pass
and through Death Trap, one of the
most dangerous climbs iu the Rockies.
Abbott's Pass is over 9,000 leet high,
is surrounded by glaciers aud subject
to constant snow slides, while Death
Trap, leading down from it is worthy
of its name, but fortunately all tbe
climbers got safely through.
An interacting feature of the camp
was tbe delegation ol Uritish guests,
incloding Euglieb Alpinists, and mem-
bere ol the British Scientific Associa-
which meets in Winnipeg this month
Many uf these gentlemen bad climbed
in Switzerland, tbe Himalayas and in
Africa. Tbey did a little climbiog
with the camp, but not a great deal.
Wheu the camp bad closed Mr.
Wheeler and a number of the members took the guests fcr a week's expedition to tbe ridge of the Rockies
north of Hector. The local men
packed tents and provisions on their
backs and for twu days tramped over
the glaciers and suowtields that divide
British Columbia from Alberta, camping two nights on the edge of tbe
timber line. The guests considered it
one ol the greatest things tbey bad
ever seen iu mountaineering. They
climbed Mount Da y and Mount Balfour and viewed some magnificent
scenery. Rev. Mr. Robertson was tbe
only one of the Revelstoke mcmle s
who shared in this feat. In fact tbis
year only three Revelstoke members
were in camp, namely, Messrs. Robert-
sou, Forde and Aldritt. At the close
ol the expedition the mountaineers all
returned to Field.
