Mayor McKinnon Outlines the Work of the Year.—The Sewer
Assessment Problem.—New Aldermen Grapple With the
Question.—Interesting Discussion.
The first meeting of the newly elect- This phase    of the matter had     lieoon
ed city  council  was held in  the     City sprung upon him for one that  day and
Hall on Monday afternoon.   Mayor Mo he would  like an  opportunity  of   eon

present Aldermen McSorley, Bourne,
Bell, Smythe, Pradolini and Needham,
with the city clerk, Mr. W.A. Gordon.
Continuing the discussion of the sew-
*r nsses'sment, the Mayor said the cost
of two box drains was spent out of
Ihe sewer  bylaw.
Aid. Ni-odham—If that was done it
was not out of the sewer only.
The Mayor—That was spent out of
the sewer bylaw.
Aid. Needham—Then this $11,000
should come out of general  revenue.
The Mayor—Hut the people would
not pass that.
Aid. Needham—That $11,000 will
mak'the  frontage allocation  go up.
Tho Mayor—You mean without the
$11,000 tho frontage assessment would
not be so high.
Aid. Needham said if the box drain
was not m the sewer estimate the money spent on the box drain out of the
sewer bylaw had nothing to do with
the sewer  really.
Aid. Bourne—Il was part of the sew-
er scheme 1 believe. The man who did
the sewer scheme should have a medal
for il.
Aid. Bell asked if the old council
thought thai should come cut of the
eewer  bylaw.
The Mayor said it was part of the
original scheme, and ihe money Was
t.pcut. If it had been done otherwise
the resull would  have been   ibe     same
Aid. Bourne—There would be more
I ayiii.'.   Tkv  only  aflecte sewer  use'-,'
Aid. McSorley—It would be just cs-
actly the same, it would be in the sewer scheme. Exactly ihe same people
would pay it-
Aid. Nceedham—If this box drain bad
not been put in there would have been
enough money to put in the sewer.
The Mayor said it was all on.i
scheme. If they undertook to do certain Wora and certain side work cropped u;> which was necessary, it was
all | art of the scheme, They put a
bylaw lo tho people, und ihey would
not pads it. The only way now Was
/through the sewer frontage scheme.
Aid. Needham said the sewer wa* n
frontage tax. If they bad no mis-
lap ll ua- not fair lo tax the Bewor
frontage people to pay for tlie box
drains. The city as a whole should put
in box drains if they were necessary.
Ihey should put this amount to general revenue instead of on the sewor.
The Mayor—How are \ ou going to
get it, the pi ople refuse lo pay it, They
nun d : he  bylaw  down.
Aid. Nec-illininmt'an we put out a de-
1 enture for It.
The Mayor—Not without getting a
general debenture.
Aid. McSorley said everyone on the
council had heard this matter thrashed
out for the last four years. Ho had
heard it  every   me I t.vo  years.
No one thought it was right but it was1
up to the council to get l! through and
*o make the best job they could of it
i>y getting rid of this liability.
Aid. Bell said if the box druins were
lieecs'snry in connection with the sewer
the sewer should pay for it as but for
the sewer there would be no box drain
Aid. McSorley—Even if it was not it.
etill has to be fixed.
Aid. Needham—If we raise the alio -
cation from $:'.15 to $5-there is going
tc be something doing.
The Mayor—At pro-cent it is n matter
of ratifying or not work that has been
done. I am no more in favor of rals -
ing it than you are.
Aid. Needham moved that the matter stand over   until the   next   mivting.
Aid.  Bourne—I  second  that, 1  think
it  fair.
The Mayor said while he agreed with
tlie principle underlying the amendment
at tho same time tbe House was iu
session at Victoria and Mr. McCarter,
who hud instructions from the old council to go ahead with the matter of
amending the old act was in Victoria
nt pros'ni in connection wiih the matter. He had only learnt that morning
They did not want to incur more expenditure thiin could be helped. That
was why he bad brought the matter up
at that meeting. Tbe money spent
would have to be provided for, ibe box
drain was part of the sewer scheme and
it would have to be paid for, there was
no way of gelling out of that. If tins
thing had been put through two or
throe years ago the assessment would
have been oboiii -SI.95 per frontage instead of $."i now. If it was allowed to
run on for another year it would be
still more as the lime for the payment
of a debenture was getting shorter.

»II, U.S. McCarter and W.H. Pratt,
Hearty votes of thanks were ace end -
ed the retiring officers for their able
work during the past year and the re -
tuing president, Mr. C.B. Hume, for
his exhaustive and Instructive repent.
The      President's   report   (Mr.  C
iiiited among     his friends.     Knowing  Hume) was in iho following  terms.

romplish. From a young lad common.- own experience of him as one ot  whom aantlemen,
ing as a cadet of tho Hudson's Bay
Jompan/on the' idea's shores of Labrador, h ■ rose, entirely by his own efforts, Id the high position he held    at

city enough to cover the interest und peerage an 1 h Id in th" greatest esteem

a kick.
The Mayor—if you do that whore \'.•.-<>
you going to get the money for street
works,  etc.
Aid. Bell—Assess the city so much
The Mayor—That's just the same position.
Aid. Pradolini—Tho question is a
gonci al  tax or a sewer lax.
Aud. Bell—Better put it where it be •
longs, on the sewer.
The city clerk pointed out that as
these allocations in question had noi
beeon paid for three years the rcanjusl-
inent did not make much difference to
those who had the sewer. Tbe Increase
would only aboui cover the three years
in which nothing had been paid.
Aid. McSorley asked when tho city
solicitor left for Victoria.
The Mayor said tho oity solicitor had
instructions to proceed with the work
from the old council.
Aid. Bell thought it better to get
the matter straighten -d out than leave
it for other people. Never mind what
people, sa.d of them they -ho ,11 try
to straighten this thing out. It should
have been done before now, and he did
not  believe in letting things slide.
The Mayor said the old council would
have done it but in the meantime the
power  had  lapsed.
Aid. .McSorley said he would like to
see ihe council unanimous on whatever
was done in the matter. As to Aid.
Bourne's remarks, Aid. Bourne bad
bi-en on the council and knew exactly
what had been done and the reasons.
Now Aid. Bourne wanted another poet
ponement, he did not know whether thu
idea was to sidetrack this mutter ag -
ain '.'
Aid. Needham said his leason was
that he wanted to consider the thing .
He had never known the ins and outs
of the  whole case until  now.
Aid. Bourne said regarding Aid.
Mc-Sorley's remarks, suid the old council was practically driven into the decision it arrived at. The remarks he
had made were to explain things to Aldermen who did not know the details.
He was not trying to block a settlement of the n.alter, he was in favor of
it if the whole council agreed. If the
city solicitor had been instructed to go
ahead with the matter it might as well
be carried through now, but ho had not
known that the city solicitor was at
Victoria until  that  meeting.
While b.s dutirs as High Commissioner
th" Dominion nnd the Empire may well
be prou I. He was a real worker, and,
in spito of his great wealth and ripe
age, preferred to give his servioes to his
iountry, instead of seeking the leisure
and r rose to which  he  was entitled.
He died in harness, a worker to the

This is the second time that I have
had the honor, as President oi your
Board of Trade, io submit lo you my
report for the proceeding year's work.
Tho pasi yar, L913, has, as you all
know, been a particularly trying one,
owing to the unanoiaf stringency In ihe
money market, caused in part by war.-,
in Europe, and in our own country by
ceispeeulation and intimation of values far beyond their actual worth, and
Which led lo tho inevitable result of a
scarcity of mon y to carry on legitimate business with. Our own little city,
however, has been particularly fortunate in ihat it has'hoc been subject to
any land boom and over-iniialation of
values and though we have of 'course
experienced the inconvenience of tbe
light money market, yet we have gone
st. adily ahead and our different businesses have shown good lesults. There
bave been but few failures in our midst
those that have occurred being of a
very minor nature and not disturbing
general conditions to any extent worth
mentioning. We have been visited by
some serious tires, such as the City
Hotel and Steam Laundry buildings,
nnd some of a less serious nature, but
1 am pleased to be able to say that the
for speculators. Now between five and (-jiy Hotel ha- been replaced by a new-
six million of acres'of land were held building much more substantial in ev-
tiy people who would not allow it to pry way, which is better equipped and

ihe "k''' '1"'c""gs of those 114 was between
eleven and twelve thousand acres, 07
out of the III averaged over 16,000 ac-
ii' .  each.   The      result   wus,  as  these
lands' were  picked  lands near   means ol   fully equipped    with  the   most up-to

I cannot impress too strongly upon
lice- members of this Hoard of Trada
the Importance of the tourist traffic to
this city. In my own humble opinion
il is the one Bourne of income that we
ought most particularly to look to.
We have every advantage in the way of
attractions to tourists, and it only
remain-, for us to develop these and to
won. out the best means of io di
In them. Too . h importance cau-

The     mountain roa'l   which has now
. been built for a dlstanoe of about four
miles, should also receive, consideration I
! and some means devised whereby     it
Cnii be carried to completion.   If   those
two  important  things are accomplish -
od, the rest will follow as a matter of j
course, and 1  have no doubt that   the ;
| railway  will then do all in  their power j
to help us  make this one of tlie   most ,
, iniie.ee i,'mi tourist centres in the moun-
I tains. From Statistics 1 learn that in
Switzerland, a country which has no
grander Bconory than we have right at
our own door, the annual  revenue from
I the tourist traffle alone is over ftlOO,-
Ctlli.OOil.   Think of this1   A sum vaster ,
1 than that obtained by the whole of our
Weatorn wheat orop.   Why should    we
not develop our own natural resources
in the same way when such results   are j
possiole?   Gentlemen, in my opinion wo
are neglecting iho greatest    asset     we
bave and are groping around for other
things,      which,  if   we did get    them
would in all likelihood not be able   to
succeed owing  to many  disadvantages
which now exist, and which would   bo
detrimental to their welfare, and which '
until we bavo better railroad facilities ,
and competition, cannot be overcome. I
would be  glad to   have you  think these
matters over  and would  BUggest    thatj
thoy  be discuss d      by  our Hoard      of
Trade during  the coming year and ev-
i ry effort lx'   made to get   others   inter - .

in connection with the Tourist devel
c. in ne of ■ ur s'ci.icin, I wish to ment-
ion the great importance of having the

districts completed, and we should us'o
every influence possible with the government to have this road completed

Ano.li t .'.latter which 1 would like t,,
,-ee tal.en up is that of the lioautlfying
of our lily and keeping our atreets and
lanes clear of rubbish. 1 would suggest that this' Board co-operate with
ihe City Council in thi- matter. In
order >«» do ihis 1 think one good [dan
would lie to introduce the idea into the
minds „f our school children and endeavor io i ach them the importance   of
pi rving our shade tiees, more par-
lie nlaily now while they are at such
a stage in their growth when- ihey

ed. Mr. Ross had stated that 50.UUO
people had been settled on the land but
that could not be so from the census
returns, whilst the returns of production of dairy produce, meats. fruits,
and Vegetables showed big decreases
during l'-Hl and 1918', so that the 50,-
000 people could not have come producers here. Jf they were in tho province' these people were not in the depart
ment of lands but in Mr. Taylor's department on the roads or somewhere
else-. He referred to the appointment
of numerous commissions, which     he
criticised severely. A plank'in the Liberal platform was no land for the speculator, and they Intended to live up lo
that. He outlined the Liberal Workman's compensation bill, which he
thought was an improvement ev'/n up-
i n the Washington Act and which ho
sal I was designed to ensure injured
workmen getting compensation instead
of the money being spent iu h'gal tights
and lelays designed to prevent the men
injured from receiving compensation. |
He would like on some other occasion '
to Bpen 1 an evening explaining that
Billl He asked them to consider (he
position from the slaiidpint lie had put,
before them and to use their franchise
in such a manner as to bring glory
and not shame to B. 0. (Loud applause.)
During the speech, of which the ab -
ove is necessarily hut an outline, Mr.
Brewster was several times subjected
to interruptions and on at least one
occasion a man was ejected from ihe
1 ach of the  ball.
Mr. M.A. Macdonald said he thought
people     believed     it wus time for     a
ehuny ■ in  political affairs in B.   0.   It
Was lime some of ihe barnacles   should
be a ci iped oa the ship of state,     to
put un end to waste, extravagance exploitation and graft, and to smash the
party     machine.    The absence of     a
strong Liberal membership in tho llo
use was no criterion of strength   of ihe
goiernui nt.    He In I: 'v. ;l  there   would
ben change .-it  the nc\i  election     and
that there was a political  storm brewing which brood cl ill for the   McBride
government.   The mtion or inaction of
tiie. government sofaras the basic- industries    were convened  bad u   great
deal to do with the prosperity     of    a
people,   The government  had put    the
land under ihe   yoke ofthe   speculator,
instead of un ler the plough.     In    regard    to ihe   lumber there should be
some Btability, some- fixity  in  regard
to rnyalities, but the policy     of       the
L-cn.iuaiciit had been erratic ice say the
least,   The McBride policy  was to in-
limldate anyone who opposed   them but
be did ncei  think they had   thai power
now.   The government     wa-'   decriplt
from old age.   The only policy of   the
govi rnment was exploitation.   As   io
t he money had gone, some of  it
bad gone   into the   pockets of  fovorort

There are oven people in the Coast

One of the greatest direct causes of

It is as nearly
as possible in the centre of that great
section ot British Columbia extending
for a length of 350 miles between the
Crow's Nest and B.C. Southern railway s'ystoms to the south and the
routes of the Grand Trunk Pacific
and Canadian Northern railways to
the north.
Prettily situated on the Columbia
river where it is crossed by the main
line  of the  Canadian Pacific  railway.
While Revelstoke thus ocoupies an
exceptionally strong position as a
traffic emporium, its outlook is still
brighter from an industrial and manufacturing point of view. There are
1,800 miles of timber on tho Oolumbiu
river and its tributaries north of tho
city. The expenditure involved in the
conversion of this timber into a marketable product will not fall fur short
of $'J75,00O,OOO.
Water power is plentiful in the vicinity, the city having harnessed one
stream to n capacity of 1,800 horse
power, which is offered for industrial
purposes at low rates.
In the valleys tributary to Revelstoke nre about a quarter of „ million
acres of land of good quality, and
which, wheen cleaned of timber, and
cultivated, is well adaptod for fruitgrowing, poultry farming, dairying,
stock raising, nnd sjencral agriculture.
This land is capable of supporting a
rural population of 30,(X)0 people
Extensive nnd varied mineral deposits nre known to exist in the neighborhood,  and await development.
Cradled amid beautiful scenes of
mountain and glacier, forest-clad hill
and vale, river, stream and lake; favored with an equable climate, Revelstoke is one ot the most picturesquely located (>f Canadian cities an 1 an
ideal  town in which to make a home.
It is well lighted, has a high pressure supply of pure water which can
be extended to meet any future requirements, ejood drainage und sewerage, high class educational institutions in the way of public and high

equipped gymnasium, two public parks

Due notice having been given, the annual Vestry meeting was hei 1 in the
Rectory of St. Peter's church on Wednesday ceiling the 7th Inst, at 8 p.m.
A large numliei' of paris-honers were
I resent and great interest was taken
in the proceedings, although it is regrettable thai a very late start was
made owing lo some of the e wbobo
presence was desirable before' beginning
Ihe business ol the meeting, not, arriving punctually at the hour tt.xco. it
seems to be a prevailing, if not a grow
ing practise in Revelstoke, to arrive
latest meetings fixed for a certain de-
l'nite hour, und il is much to be de-
procated on account of wasto of time
which ia bound to (all to the lot of
those whose I raining has been on the
lines of punctuality. The services in
the church begin at the hours appointed, why not, therefor, the meetings of
the church officers and parishoners?
The Rector, the Rev. C.A. Procunier
opened the proceedings at 8:15 p. m.,
with prayer and Mr. H.H. McVity, the
Rei tor's Warden, immediately after -
wards read the minutes of the last Vestry meeting which waJ held on Janu -
ury Sth, 19P!. These being approved
and signed, the minutes of the Special
Vestry meeting held on the 8th Sept.,
for ihe purpose of appointing a Peo -
pie's Warden to fill the vacancy caused
ty the retirement of Mr. J. Lee, vera
also read and  approved.
Tbe meeting then proceeded to consid
er the accounts of the year Submitted
by Mr. W.B. Wallace, tho People's Wat-
den. Shortly summarized they disclosed the position that after paying
all the expenses of the year (except tax
es) and reducing the in.lebtodness to
the Imperial Rank by s|00 the balance
in the Bank had increased by about
Turning to the general financial position of the church, a statement was
also submitted by Mr. Wallace, show-
ing that the elelicit at the end of the
year, if outstanding subscriptions were
paid, amounted to $-"'f'3. It was pointed out by one of those present, that
the parishoners should not feel too hap
pyover this apparently small deficit,
as the present position really was that
tho Church owed $995 and had only
?1C9 to pa>- it With, and it Was further
ivmarked that in order to realise the
position disclosed by the account, tho
large sum of ?502 representing uncollected but promised subscriptions must h
collected, and it urged upon those who
were about to accept the honorable offices of Wardens and Church committee
to "get busy" and collect these outstanding subscriptions. A successful ef
fort in this direction might lesuli in a
considerable reduction of the Bank loan
and it was further urged by the People's Warden I hut some special effort
should be made to entirely pay off the
Bunk ami place'the Church in the position oi being independent of such loans
Not only should the Church, in a c. c
like Revelstoke, be sell-supporting, bu*
it should be able to help other churches
less fortunately placed, and tho hop"
was expressed ihai at some not fa
distant day this enviable position
would be attained.
The a.'counts whi. li were audited hy
Messrs. C.M. Eield and Percy B. Wilsou
were then presented to the meaetiug
with various ex|jlnnations by Mr. Wnl-
lace andunanimously approved, a   vote
of  thanks  to the auditors having been
accorded to them
The Reotor then read hia annual report showing Ihe progress made by

of the reasons why ritl>flna of Revelstoke and District helieve in their

The reproducing point of
the new Edison Cylinder
Phonograph is a diamond
It was appropriate that when Mr. Edison was
seeking the utmost perfection in sound reproduction he should find that this power lay in
the diamond. He discovered it in the course of
more than 2,500 experiments, always looking toward
rarer sweetness, mellower,
stronger L->ne.
He has equipped every
new Edison Phonograph with
a diamond-point reproducer.
When this maivelously imip#ivious tip rests upon
(he surface of the unbreakable Blue Anberol
Record, the heavier pressure can produce but
one result—wonderfully increased volume com-
bined with rarer sweetness. Hrar a Blue Araterol
