Several Bylaws Passed.
The Oity Council in regular session
last nigbt transacted a large amount
uf civin business with dispatch. Among
the important items passing the vote
of the board was the appointment of a
City Sulieitor and a City Assessor,

the city during the year.
The council met at S o'cluck with

aldermen present excepting Aid.
The report of the City Engineer
stated that in making the location of
the line fur the trunk eewer in the
city he had adhered ae closely as possible to the line se octet! by Cul. T. II.
Tracey, O.E, as the une best suited
fur the discharge uf the sewage from
the cast and we.t sides A Connaught
avenue. This line necessitated the
diversion of a small stream to leave
available the use of the vault to obtain
sullicient fall for the sewer drainage,
and the convenient locution of a septic tank. It recommended the con
veyance uf the water whicu ut pres ml
llnws through tho center uf the city
by means ol a cedar culvert iilnng
Pearson street to the Columbia river.
It alsu recommended the diversion ol
tiie email stream north ol Campbell
avenue by mesne ol a box culvert to
the Columbia river. The report stated
that when these diversions are accom
plished al! cesspools will be obviated
and a clean bill of health be ull'orded
the city.
In the discussion ol the repnrt the
mayor pointed uut that it would be
necessary tu ubtaiu permissiuu from
tbe Provincial government to extend
the cedar box culvert beyoud the city
limits uu Third street to the bank ot
the river aud also from tbe C.P.R. to
replace the culvert diverting the smaller stream. Ou motion of Aid. Pradolini and Wells the couucil will ask
permission of the government and on

The cost of the work is $4,1187 and ub

debentures but was restrained frum
selling ut a le-s ligure than II2J per

Kimberley that W.I. Briggs be cu-
guged as City Solicitor at a rate of

Pradolini that CM. Field be appointed
City Assessor and that a competent
builder be chosen to assist in ease of

mayor pointing uut that the duties ol

A delegation consisting ol Ex Aid.
Foots   snd   J.   Mstbie   appeared on
behalf of the O Idfellows to iisk Inr tin
repair and grading af the alley alongside Selkirk hall. They pointed out
that the alley is a busy thuiuughlan
and that thu hall is in use every night
while the condition of the alley was
described as "shocking." They also
asked that their electric light nt the
side entrance be taxed at a Hat instead
ol a meter rate as heretofore.
The mayor explained that a by-law
covered the electric light rate and that
it would be placed on the Hat circuit.
As to the grading ol the alley, provision would be made 111 the preparation
of the estimates for the year.
A second deputation consisting of
S. Needhani and 11. Cunningham-
Murris asked fur twu hydrant" for the
west end, for boots lor ihe members uf
No. 1 company, for a controlling
nozzle and for several other sundries
including the piinting nt the Fire
Hull by-laws. They also asked for an
appropriation uf $50 tu assist in procuring uniform cuats su that "a smart
appearance might he presented on
parade," caps having beeu purchased
already at tlieir uwn expense. The
small amount asked would pay but a
portion ol the cost of the cuuts.
The mayor explained that tbe hydrants asked for had been ordered lasl
year and were now on bund. The liie
wardens would take steps to have them
installed forthwith, In a matter uf a
grant for uniforms tlie question was
laid uver, several'nl the members uf the
board pleading fur economy in the
mutter of civic expenditures. Further
consideration will be given the request
after consultation with the members
uf No. 1 hall. The printing ol bylaws
was turned down as uuiirperutive.

explanation of the cause uf lhe laying
off of the Italian luborers from the city
work and His Worship outlined the
causes which hud led to his action in
the matter assuming full responsibility lor the same substantially as
already published in tbe Mail-Herald.
The explanation was received with

VICTORIA, May 1,—A delegation
from the Navy League met Premier
McBride yesterday and requested that
he urge upon the Covernment at
Ottawa the advisability of an immediate contribution in cash to Great
Britain, in aid ul the Navy, and further to pledge British Columbia to
Cuutribute a portion uf Bitch contribution. At the conclusion ol the
meetiug it was arranged that the
League should present a memorial

see British Columbia leading the
other provinces in a gift ol cash, im-
mediaeely and tnicunditiunally, to go
as an offering irom Canada tu the
Imperial .overumeut.
Ottawa, May .—The ohiet feature
of yesterday's debate on the G.T.P.
loan was the speech of Mr. Burrell
(Yale-Cariboo), who criticized the
Government's policy regarding the
ruud. He pointed uut that the Cun-
servative party throughout the Du-
miniuii wanted the line completed,
but at a mure reasonable eust. He
tuuk iBsue witb Sir Wilfrid Laurier
that the cuuntry had mulled the project twice. In 11104, the contract had
been made, and the electors were
asked not to repudiate it. This was
successful, but in l'JO.S, bo far as British Columbia was concerned, the elec
tors went on the principle of "once
bit, twice shy," nnd had scut a Con
servative majority from the Province.
Mr. Burrell advocated the Government
taking over the road, us the G.T.P.
Company had violated tho moat sacred
clauses of the contract.

Wily Chinese Outwit Customs
and are Deported Home Free
of Charge at the Expense of
U. S. Government
Thirty seven Chinese, declared hy
the United States ollicials to be illegally in the country, were ordered
deported nnd nre being sent back to
Chins on the liuer Manchuria, wbicb
has just arrived on the nthet side. But
down in the steerage of the huge ship
in which the deported Chinese are con-
tiiittl behind burred doors, there is
little sorrow and much rejoicing, the
reason lor which has just been discovered.
One nf the neatest, cleverest schemes
ever worked on unsuspecting ollicials
by foreigners is said to be tbe result
of a large numler of Chinese being
deported, Among this nationality
there is a great love uf the uld cuuntry,
tbere being tew Chinese who tlo not
gu bank to China us often as their
menus will permit. There nre, however, imiup of the ulmun-eyed brethren
in the States whu are financially un
able to make a home visit, and. as a
consequence, tliese have evolved a
cunning plan which is said to be wurking with great success.
Besident Chinese in the States have
tlieir "papers'' to show that they bave
a legal right to go back and lurih between the United States and China.
These the puor Cbinaman sends by
mail luck tu friends in his native land.
Perhaps he oan't afford to buy passage
to China, but it is mure likely that be
can. At any rale, be either surrenders
himself to the authorities, giving a
lictitions name, stating that he haa no
right to be in the country, or he takes I
a little jaunt down to the Mexican I
border and purposely gets caught, when i
he is supposed tu be smuggling bia
precious sell in
" Vnu bave no right in this country
then," says Uncle Sam, who  is   head1
ot a very large corporation;  "so   we'll
just give yuu free transportation  back
tu tbe laud where the dragon Hies."
Back the Chinaman goes to China—
tlepurted.   But be has all bis passports
etc., etc., with which tn return. And—
but what's the use.   "The ways ul the
I heathen Chinese are shurcly peoooliar."
Mure than ball the   Chinese   being
j deported un the   Manchuria   this  trip
I are said tu have   secured   free   trims-
j portutiun to Chiua when  they  ought
to puy for it.

Russians Sank Warships at Fall
of Port Arthur
Los Asm i.i -, May I,—While in the
Alexandria     hulel     yesterday,   Hear-
Admiral Ijlcbl, commanding tbe Japanese training squadron nuw at San
Pedro,   learned   that  EUar-Admiral
Uui.Ity I). Evans was alsu a   guest   ul
the hniel. The Japanese Admiral Immediately sent his card to Admiral
Evani' room where he was at mice
received, The visit ol the two admirals, which lasted neatly hall uu
hour, whi the u caiiuti ul   a   remark
able discussinn nl international questions, inoluding the subject of war
between Japan and the United States.
Both agreed that war between the
I'nited States and Japan is impossible
"I would like to know," inquired
Admiral Evans, "how your people
succeeded in raising tbe Russian
ships which you sank aud in what
oondition yuu found tbem."
Admiral Ijichi replied: " We raised
the sunken battleships anil cruisers nt
Port Arthur and Chemulpo without
any great difficulty. We found that
those at Port Arthur were nut sunk
by tbe mortar lire directed upon them
from 203-metre hill. None ol the
shells penetrated the protected decks,
a'thongh the superstructures and gun
mountings were badly shuttered. The
ships w re sunk hy the Russians by
opening the SOS cucka when they lound
the port, must tall into our hands
After raising the ships we found that
the projectiles had peueir«ttd the
wooden decks, but had Hat tenet! uut
against tbe steel and were lyiug there
It evidently would not have been possible tu sink the ships by the lire frum
the heights."

Aiming the visitors to the city during tbe past week was F. B. Lewis, of
Vancouver, lung and favorably known
as one of the loremost business men of
Revelstoke and one whose removal
from the business activities and social
life iu the city is generally regretted.
Mr. Lewis was a Revelstuke old-timer,
having cume to the city in the early
days, when quite a young n an, trom
Shropshire, England. During his
career in the city, engaged as he was
in the business ol insurance and real
estate, he succeeded by his integrity,
energy und ability in building up one
of the must successful connections in
the interiur and a reputation which
might well incite the admiration ol
his fellows, li is needless to state thut
he has reaped his financial reward and
that frnm a commercial point uf view
his career haB been a success.
Early in the history ol the city Mr
Lewis was one of those who instigated
the Incorporation ol the Revelstuke
Townsite Cumpany to take over the
townsite ul the city frum the hands of
lhe London capitalists whu, up lu that
timo bad been i.perilling its pussi-
bilitios with a view tu the increase ol
their uwn revenues, which, with tho
head ullice in London, did the city
little guud. T'hs result of the purchase by the local syndicate wits thill
much  ul  the   profits   accruing   Irom
transfers and lucal deals remained in
the city and bee.une a part uf the
medium lor re-investment here. In
this company Mr. Lewis still holds
large interests.
Mr. Lewis led iu the inauguration ut
lhe publicity campaign now carried un
iu OOnneOtlon with the Culgary Fair
and which  has  duiiti   much   tu   place
the resources ol the oity and surround'
ing district belure lhe investing public. Hu alsu led in the formation ol
the   Revelstuke   l.itnil   Company,     a
corporation which by wise Investment
and shrewd business management. has
proved a brilliant success.
In addition totheiecorporate enter-
puses Mr. Lewis has been an active
member of all public bodies in the city
and has ever bl on unu Ol the (urtiinust
in hacking these with his linuneial
snppurt. In 1007 he was president ul
the lli.niil ul Trade ol which he bun
been'for many yeara a busy member.
Tbe General Hospital, the Y.M C.A.
ami other benevolent and philanthropic Institutions never appealed to
him in vain [ur assistance when exercised in a guud cause. lie still
remains a stoekbolder In thoLawrenoe
Hardware Cumpany ami in several
uther commercial cumpanies, being a
dlreotor..! the lormer.
It was, however, by giving special
attention lu the insurance business
that Mr. Lewis was ah e lu cumiiiHiid
thu   patronage   ut   almost the  whole
community in that line. The premium income ol his ullice from Ibis
source was probably the largest ol any
ullice in the interim' ut the province.
A strong local company has t.ukeu
nver the affairs ol the concern ol
which he wns tho head and will continue the work of the ollice with eipial
Mr Lewis was a prominent member
of the llevelstnke Club and an active
Liberal in politics. His home was one
of the must beautiful in Revelstuke
and was purchased on his departure
by Mayor Lindmark. Mr. Lewis has
been nuw a month in Vancuuver nnd
bus established new connections there.
Hu is much pleased with the prospects
of the const city anil expects that the
larger sphere fnr activity will afford
him a new field for his energies. He
will leave lor the Coast tomorrow
English Journals Realizing folly
of Insular Policy
Mr. A. J. Dawson, editor of the
Standard of Empire who arrived in
Vancouver frum ;he Antipodes this
week and spoke befure the Canadian
Club, of which he was a guest, deah
with the i[uestiuii ul the increased
atteutiun being paid tu Cauadiau life
and progress liy the press of the Mother
country.    In part he eaid:
"Since its inception last year, the
Empire newspaper bus published just
over a million words abuut Canada
alnne. Du nut suppose, gentlemen,
that any of this mass of words ure
wasted. No, no. I will tell yuu smoothing nf a secret. A few months ago
an official of u great Canadian curpur-
ation in London came to me and told
me 1 bad better luok out. 'Yuu have
rivals, and I can tell you oi four in an
unexpected quarter who are at Ibis
moment perfecting their arrangements
for compi ting with you.' The quarter
wus called unexpected, because tin
polioy ul the journals concerned was
I supposed to be sumewhat insular. I
siid I was delighted tu bear it,uud in\
friend looked puzzled. Well, gentlemen, 1 won't bother you with details,
but I will tell yuu that since then twu
great daily pn pars in Scotland and twu
in England, have definitely entered
upon the wurk ul giviug representation in their columns to Canadian
interests. 1 have been consulted in
the matter, and I have welcomed Ibis
movement in the warmest possible
manner, iu these cases, and in the case
ut sume lesser journals,   I havo u   red
the use ul the "Standard of Empire's
own special cable services, the benefit
ul our own experience, and any help
that we oan give in any form, tu what
I regard us une ul the must practical
and truly valuable muvcineuts ul   uui
time among ihe British people,   1 ask
you to c .ii rdn ju-1   what  ILia  li i ins
[ur Canada, and lor greater Britain
generally; the widespread publicity
lhat ii means; the widespread tendency tn the establishment and extension ui mutual understanding; tbal
mutual understanding which we an
agreed is at tbe basis of all enduring
forms ul unity, politically, oommer-
daily, 'mil in every otborway, This is
what I call educiiliuii by wbulesale;
and it is une ol the things the "Standard ul Empire" ban already dune, as it
were, outside Itiell, Tliese aro the
specific instances  of which   one   may
speak with certainty."
