t%%%%%%%*%%%% %V%*VsV%%%%%%%
only one of three the main industries
ol Eastern British Columbia, whose
condition is not satisfactory. The
mines are working a greater number
ol men and, with tlie rise in llio price
ol copper and the expected rise in the
price ol lead and silver, more proper,
ties aro yet operating. The local
hotels are being choked almost night,
ly with the i'lll.u ol laud buyers, small
fruit farm settlers for the must part
Lumber alone has its conditions unsettled and though there is the same
note ol future progress apparent, yet
the conditions of this industry leave
much to be desired.
The question affecting Eastern British Columbia is not so much the price
of lumber as whether tho mills will
oontinue working. Just now 80 per
cent, ol the mills have closed down,
some ol the throw..out labor being
absorbed by the mines and some going upon the land.
The price uf lumber, according to
inquiries made here and around tbe
district generally, is not likely to be
affected to any very great degreo by
the prevailing conditions. It is perfectly true that the lumber manufacturers here have large stocks of lumber on hand iu many instances. It is
also as true, again, that the bunks are
not inclined to ndvauce any further
Bums to the lumber manufactures in
suchmianner as to extend their credits.' In certaiu weak instances this
has compelled the sale ol some ol the
lumber stock at prices very much
lower than those quoted during last
summer. Such sales, however, have
not been extensive our have they appreciably affected tbe stocks on band.
Ou the other hand, another factor has
come to the assistance of the lumbermen and that iB the demand not only
from the Grand Trunk Pacific, but
also from the Great Northern, and
from the Canadian Pacific for tics and
pole? 'or the construction ol new
tracks all over the country. Thus, ol
the small number of mills that are
still running, most of them are wo.k-
ing upon the orders for ties given by
these great concern!.
The demand for lumber when once
it springs up again, is likely to be
even greater than before. Heretofore
the lumberman has depended almost
entirely upon the Northwesl for his
market, his loci market not lieing of
any very great extent. As already
uotul, this is no longer the case, inasmuch as the whole of the country is
being rapidly stilled. To take one
ease, that uf Fruitvsle, wheie within
a comparatively short period ol some
three months at least 200 new families
invited tho co-operation of all Conservatives, lle touched ou the coming Domiuiou election and appealed
to all Conservatives to be rosily for the
light. Messrs. McLeod, Foster and
Campbell also nude brief speeches
urging the necessity ot holding
frequent meetings such as these. Two
resolutions were unanimously passed
endorsing the policy of Mr. li. L.
Bordeu in the Federal 'louse and
pledging support to tbe cause; also to
Premier Mcllri.le avowing support in
bis actions nnd expressing satisfaction
with the work ol Mr. Taylor. At the
close ot the meeting the gathering
which consisted of representatives
from all south points, beside Revelstoke and Arrowhead, adjourned to

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 13, 1907
Oa Satttr lay last His Most Gracious
Majesty Edward VII, King ol Great
Britain and the British Dominions
beyond the seas, and Emperor ot India,
celebrated hii sixty-sixth birthday.
From one end of the Empire to the
other there prevails the sincere de.
lire that our illustrious ruler will be
long preserved to reign over his vast
realm and to continue to exercise that
wonderful intiuence Ior the world's
g»d which has been so notable a
feature ol his six years' reign. King
Edward ha: won tbe praise aud the
tribute ol every civilized natiou by the
remarkable sagacity, the keen judgment and the all wise intiuence which
he has exerciied in the interests ol all
people, for the preservation of peace
and the pru.perity oi commerce.
Canada, ever loyal and true to the
Motherland, her nearest offspring, her
eldest child, as it were, unites in deepest and warmest congratulations to
her sovereign and gives vent to repeated expression! ol devotion to the
grand oid Sag which waves over Great
Britain's monarch. The spirit of
Imperialism is strong upon us aud as
the years roll on, succeisive generations will maintain, unshaken and untarnished the loyal allegiance to
England and forever conserve the
grand solidity ol the British Empire,
It will be'tor posterity to award to
King Edward that position in the
temple of greatnes! which shall rightly be his, but by men of today he is
regarded io the light of that supreme
character which gives him the prim
acy position among the moit eminent
rulers the world has seen. It is ai
Edward the Great and the Good that
he will be known to history and every
loyal and true hearted Canadian, be
he in the mountain, or in the forest,
or in the city, working under tbr
flag ol the Empire and adding bii
quota to the development and expan-
lion ol British supremacy will utter
in hi! heart "God Save the King.''
of growth and expansion and as ll.e
city increases bo must the utilities
ami conveniences neoe-sary for thc
publio bejintrodnccd. What served
the purpose very well here ton years
ago will be practically ol no use now,
and oul of the first effort! of our pioneers has evolved many improvements
which in Iheir turn must give way to
what is yet to come and tu what is
(..king place iu our every day lile.
Enterprise should be nur in tto in
i these days, an.l expansion of business,
ideas and methods will materially aid
iu popularizing the city. Let public
matter! have every attention and let
the business men Iratcrnizo in their
efforts to increase our commerce. Our
Buanl ul Trade should rally better
when called upon and whon subjects
ol direct importance to city progress
and ciiy development are up for discussion ..ur busine-s men should meet
and carry on tho work entailed lor the
public good. Individuals will benelit
by tho j.iBt dealings ol a public body
such aa this, and individuals aro but
units which gu tu form the whole,
Kevelstoke should never bo allowed tu
stand still. We are lar loo imporla.it
a centre for that aud when our citizens
thoroughly realize what the future
Holds in store fur us, a! a centre ol
commerce and industry, we feel sure
that every man among us would shake
off the apathy whicli has been too
apparent ol late, und get down to work
lor Kevelstoke as a cily. Interest iu
public matters is closely connected
reiultuntly with home life and what is
done for the city will bo done for the
gets, and nsk him tu put in practice
what be sn ably | reaches. We will
point out the fact that thn interest on

settlers the lirst, and every year, and
a thousand and one other rea-uns ftr

may be completed, before high water.
Thero is another thing, by building
tho wagon bridge separate we can

saving 300 leet of approach at each
end. Now, our board of trade better

A Spectator,
The nervousness of Britisli Columbia
at the alien inroad is partly due to a
reason which one glance at the map
of Canada will render intelligible. Ex
cept for lhe two thread! of iteel with
which the Canadian Pacilic Railway
traverses the Rocky Mountains, that
province is isolated from the rest ol
the Dominion fur all serious commercial and military purposes. II Canada
shuuld become the object ol attack by
any Pacific power, a handful of the
latter'B subjects already in the country
might, by the destruction ol thc railway in the Crow's Nest and the Kicking Horse passes, cut off British Columbia from its eastern base, and place
it absolutely at the mercy ol a naval
assailant. Now that Canada has
assumed the responsibility of her own
defences, there is no military problem
that requires closer attention than
this of the western coast line.—Pall
Mall Gazette.
We note with latislaclion that there
ii a general tendency on the part ol
Retelitoke citizens to realize that the
city ii growing and that to maintain
that gr .wth aud keep up with it,
many innovations and improvement!
will have to be carried out. As we
grow in lizeand importance, we ihould
look to it that our commercial, our
locial and our modernizing abilities
ibould expand in accordance with
that which every increaiit.g city de
mauds We cannot itop still, we wil:
not go back, and the only way to go is
lorward. Revelatoke hai reached that
itage ol her developmental career
when the old muit give place to the
new and unless modern innovation!
and up-to-date interests are adopted,
we cannot keep pace with tbe times.
On every side may be seen evidences
Columbia Traffic Bridge.
Editor Miii.-lliiim.i..
Dear Editor,—Re your article in
last issue beaded "Columbia Trallic
Bridge," did it ever occur to yuu that
our distinguished Premier might have
a normal appetite lor good things and
would think enough us good as a
least, and seeing what we got trom
the C.I'.R. Ior |2,iil)0 in the shape of a
loot bridge (with a gate on it so we
could not take a bike over or lead a
horse across) had thought better ol
taking up the question ot a combination railroad and trallic bridge. On
the other hand if he did take it up
with theni there could be but one
reply that is that the C.P.R. could not
possibly change the plans of their new
bridge, and make it a combination lor

most successful uttering in "We Are
King," to appear here Tuesday, Nov.
19th, The action ii in Kahuburg, a
small principality in Germany, und
deals with the complications in trying
to dethrone King Hector, a deBpot,
who has run liis kingdom into debt
and giound down his subjects,
Gustavus Vernier, correspondent Ior
thc London Record, a light-hearted
(ellow, wandcis into Kahuburg in
search ul news. He is arrested as a
spy. The Prime Minister of Kahu
burg and his followers, who are plot
ting to rid the kingdom ol Hector, are
so impressed with Vernier's marvelous
resemblance to the King, that they
induce Vernier to impersonate the
King, who is awny on a secret mission.
Venner, under thc imprcsiim that
he ii rendering the King and the court
a lavor, and seeing good "copy" in
sight, consents. Hector returns unexpectedly and is dragged away to
prison as a spy, while Venner, costumed as the King and accepted by
the court, proceeds to run the kingdom, He lowers tho tuxes on the
people, throws the palace open to the
public, and gets himself into all sorts
of ludicrous complications through
his igncrance ol court affairs.
Mr. David B. Gully, as Gustavui
Venner and Hector, King of Kahn-
burg, has a splendid voice, an admirable stage presence and is ably fitted
for the rolo he portrays. He infuses
in the dual role all the requirements.
His effective change from the light-
hearted devil-may-care correspondent,
to the despotic and debauched King,
shows clearly that he has mustered
the liner points ol his art.
Mr. Gaily will be ably iiipportul by

Majesty, Edward ihe Seventh, by the
Grace ol Gi d of the United Kingdom
of Great Britain uud Ireland and ol all
tho British Dominion beyond the Seas,
King, Delender of the Faith, Emperor
of India, celebrated his sixty-sixth
When King Edward ascended the
throne there was evinced a loyal de-
site to celebrate his birthday annually
as a great public holiday throughout
the Empire. A strong factor against
this wus the fact that the British people bad grown so accustomed to observing Queen Victoria's birthday,
May 24, through a reign extending
over three score years, that they had
come to Innk upon May 24 ae a permanent national holiday.
Perceiving this sentiment, in which
he himself shares, the King has requested that his own birthday be allowed to pass without extraordinary
official observances. This renunciation hy the King of tbe usual royal
prerogative to have bis birthday celebrated by ull bis subjects has resulted
in a lesalo.mal an.l uffi.'i.il, hut none

During Our Big TEN Days' Sale Om* Store has been
crowded with customers who bought many of our Bargains and came
back and bought again. We had many new customers whose business
we intend to keep. Some were not prepared to take advantage of the
low prices, and to help them out, many of our cut prices will bc left on
during the coming week, and some new ones will be added. Any lines
in which we feel our stock is too large, must be reduced, and it will be
money-saving to anyone in need of those goods. We are still a few
dollars short of the amount we advertised for, and arc anxious to make
up the deficiency.
Among the lines we would call especial attention to are :
Ladies' Coats and Skirts
Children's Coats and Dresses
Ladies' and Children's Hose
Shoes for Everybody.
DRESS GOODS that sold from $i to $2 per yard.   There are
about 25 Suit lengths, made of the Best Wool, and you can have your
choice at 50c. per yard.
