decision of the city council on Friday
night. Thi'' and other matters occupied the attention of the council
at a meeting which lasted until after
midnight and at which subjects ranging from dog taxes to electric machinery were exhaustively discussed.
Three petitions were before the
council. They asked for the pavement with hitulithie as a local improvement under the Local Improvement act to the full width of the

The Canadian Pacific .railway was a
great factor in Revelstoke. It had
never done anything to bring tourists to the city. In the past the city
had done nothing to help itself but
had always looked to the government
or the railway company. It had
started now to help itself and new
roads would he a great improvement
and would stimulate :ourist traffic.
Tourist traffic would be a great asset

this is a lug order.
He saitl that 1,000 miles of new-
track were in course of construction
last year anil this would all be com-

criticised the policy or the McBride
government and mentioned some of
the aims for which the Liberal party
would work.
The following resolution was passed:
"We, the Liberals of Kevelstoke
riding in convention assembled, do
most heartily express our unbounded
confidence in our most worthy leader, the Honorable Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
and do endorse his action during the
past session of the Dominion parliament, in regard to his stand on the
Navy bill, and believe with him, that
Canada has a perfect right and is both
able and competent to construct and
most ably man a navy of her own, in
opposition to a monetary contribution. We would also endorse the
strenuous efforts put forth by our
worthy leader in his endeavor to reduce the tariff on agricultural machinery, and secure larger markets
for the farmers' produce. We also
wish to express our deepest respect
and unbounded faith in the ultimate
success of the Liberal policy, and feel
assured that it will not be long before the Liberal party will be asked
by the Canadian people to assume the
reins of government. We sincerely
trust that the life of this great statesman, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, will long
be spared to rule the destinies and
propogate the principles of the Liberal party in Canada.
"We also wish to express our entire confidence in Mr. II. C. Brewster, leader of the Liberal party in
this province; we mosi heartily approve of his method of touring the
country, in an educational campaign,
both in the interests of the Liberal
party and 'he general public.
"We heartily endorse the Liberal
platform as unanimously assented to
at one of the largest conventions over
held in the province in February last.
"We desire to express our loyalty
and devotion to the ;.".ieral eaur.j ami
to the Liberal leaders and we wouid
• • them that Revelstoke was
never m"'-r willing and ready to outer
■ con est to defend these principles than et the present time."

The dictionary defines a prairie as
"a level or rolling tract of treeless
Und covered with coarse gruss."
Strictly speaking, then, the prairies
no longer exist m Canada except locally, for there are no longer uny
large areas exempt from settlement
and the settlers throughout the West
have already heen Bupplled by the
Dominion Forestry Branch with over
84,000,000 trees, all of which have
been planted ami most of which are
growing up in the form of woodlots
und shelterbeds. So successful have
been these plantations and so great
hus the demand for trees grown,that
the Indian Head Nursery Station,
which has an annual capacity of approximately three million tries, can
no longer supply this demand und it
has been necessary to establish a
brunch nursery at Saskatoon.
The opinion was once widespread
thut the prairies were naturally treeless and many ingenious theories
were advanced to account for this
trcelessness. One was that the soil
was tun line; i second that the soil
wus all right, lint that because of the
thick soil th" tree seeds could not

there was insufficient rainfall, ami
still another that the dry winter
winds killed the bails and twigs. Hut
if any of these [actors have heen detrimental to tree-growth on the prairies in the past, the b'oreBtry Branch
has since succeeded in producing
trees which are so adapted to climatic conditions that growth is assured, if the trees ure given a proper
The most, probable cause of the
treclessneBs of the prairies is man,
not nature. The fact that the Indians
long ago were in the habit of setting
fires to the forests and grass-lands in
order to afford better grazing, anil
that In the lull, when these fires were j
usually set, the prevailing winds were
westerly, seems to prove tint Irom j

and the United States, the area of

City Offers Reward For The
Apprehension of Safe
Their footsteps traced by Chief of
Police 11. M. Parry and Constable
Garnett from the scene of their crime
to the railway bridge over the Columbia river and afterwards seen by
hoboes at a camp at the Big Eddy,
the two burglars who early on the
morning of April 28 blew the safe at
the postoffice and escaped with booty
consisting of three gold watches ami
two chains, the property of Postmaster Young, $150 in gold and notes and
agreements of sale, the property of
Mrs. Scafe, assistant postmistress,
have disappeared. The police are
working diligently on the case, fifty
dollars' reward has been offered by
the city Cor information leading to the
apprehension of the culprits and their
descriptie n so far as known and a description o!' the property stolen has
been circulated by Chief Parry among
the police forces where the safeblow-
ers are likely to be seen.
.Sieon after the burglary a freight
train passed going west. This was
pursued and overhauled by Chief
Parry al Craigellachie but no trace
ol" the culprits was to be found. On
his return the chief raided a hobo
camp at Big Eddy and arrested 20
men, and although some of the hoboes reported having seen men answering to the description of the safe
blowers the robbers were not among
those arrested.
As soon as news of the burglary
reached the police station by telephone
Sergt. Cleland hastened to the scene
and it was the sound of his footsteps
as he ran that alarmed the burglars
and caused them to decamp. Constable
Ross was also at the spot immediately after thc alarm was given.
Three hundred and seventy-three dollars left behind by the burglars in
their haste were picked up by the
police on the floor of the postoffice.
A knife, a bottle of nitro-glycerine and
some soap were also found.
The burglary was of the most daring- description. Three shots in all
were fired. The safe doors were
shattered and one oi* the heavy doors
was blown bodily across the postoffice and made a dent in the wall _•">
feet away.
The attention of Miss Bell, a nurse
at the hospital was attracted by the
sound of the first shot and she and
Miss Geiger, anoher nurse, joined afterwards by Douglas Blackwell, fireman at the hospital and Mrs. Black-
well watched the burglars operating
from the hospital windowss. Miss
Bell gave the alarm to the police by
telephone but some delay was encountered in making connection. Mrs.
S. Gale who lives in a house at the
rear of the postoffice was also awakened by the first sho: and saw the
burglars from her bedroom window.
Arthur \V. Thompson, night clerk at
the Revelstoke hotel passed the post-
office aboti*- half an hour before the
burglary was committed and noticed two men in the neighborhood
answering to the description of the
One man stationed at the rear of
the postoffice was seen by witnesses
of the occurrence running from side
to side of the postoffice to command
a view in every direction while his
comrade blew the safe. When he heard
the footsteps of the police he tapped
at the rear window and both miscreants ran toward the railway tracks.
One evidently dropped part of his
booty for he was seen to return, pick
something up and pro eed.
On the arrival of the police and
Postmaster Young the office was
found filled with smoke and dust, the
door of the sale in ruins and money
lying scattered on the floor. The
registered mail contained in the sale
was untouched. Mail bags bearing
mark- of lOap were found which had
evidently been used to cover the safe
to deaden the noise of the explosion.

man who will look after this ilis-
uict in particular and the province
in general We do not want any rub-
ber stbinps."
Dr. Sutherland In accepting the
nominatioi echoed Mr, MeRae's remarks. "Ii will never be a case of
rubber stamp representation so long
as I am able to speak and act on your
behalf," ha said, "either on the plat-
*'orm or in the house at Victoria " And
he declare I "any suggestions you
may make will always be properly
taken up and considered."
By "rubber stamps" the speakers no
doubt meant a man who will nicely register the decree of others, and
will neglect to use his own judgment.
of that Hon. Thomas Taylor cannot,
at least, be accused, lie is not a
subordinate member of the legislature, b.,i tne efficient head of the
most important department of the
government. His record is before the
people ol British Columbia and it is
a recoid of progressiveness, initiative and strength of purpose which
has met with approval from one end
el' the province to the other and
which won for him at the last election t'.i undivided support of his
const it i,i its, Liberals and Conservatives alike.
On lhe other hand the record of
Dr. S llherland does not inspire confidence that he will avoid the danger
which .Mi. McRae fears. As mayor

mayor ii i never was the outstanding

futile? No one could do more for the
constituency than has been done by
Mr. Taylo -, and no one could do less
than the Liberal candidate is likely
to accomplish.

unnecessary to take up the pipes under the boulevards, lie was in favor
of proceeding with itie pavement if
possible. This would be a quiet year
and the work would help conditions.
The proposal of the petitions made

Sir Thomas Visits City
(Continued  from rage One.)
He said (he company hoped to be
operating trains on the Kettle Valley lire by the middle of next year
and it was expected a service would
be inaugurated by way of Spence's
Bridge and the Nicola valley line early
in 1916 io he utilized until the Hope
Mountain cut-off is finished. He
denied that a complete alternative
line from Winnipeg to the coast was
under consideration.
Asked as to how he found conditions in the west, Sir Thomas said:
''Then are many signs of real and
permanent improvement in conditions 'I lie whole country has been
passing through a period of stress
cal' ui.-.ted to try the metal of the peo-
pij but it has stood the strain well.
With good crops next fall, there
should be removed all doubt about
Western Canada marching forward
without further interruption to the
splendid destiny that is hers.
"1 do not mean that we shall see a
boom, or anything of that sort, but
that wc shall enter upon a period of
sane, natural development, which will
be all the better for the country in
the long run.
"In respect to conditions at the
coast, while there has, of course, been
a cessation of that feverish activity
that characterized the past few years,
1 no,ice indications of an improvement. Dm timber shipments are
picking up, and (his is a good sign.
Asked as to the rumor that the new
Pacific Empresses the Asia and Russia, might be transferred to the Atlantic, lo be replaced hy larger vessels in.v building, Sir Thomas shook
his be.j with an emphatic, "there is
nothing in  it."

earliest possible moment.
"Tenders were called for those four
BOOtIons," said Hon. Dr. Reid, "and
I am pleased to say that the tenders
received In each case were lower than
those estimated by our engineers who
have charge of this great work. Bas-
od on the tenders received, tbo four
sections are estimated to cost $2U,-
I."ill,i«iii, or several millions less than
was estimated. There is another section, known as Number S for which
lenders will be called in a short time
Tbis is the last of the heavier work,
and the remaining contracts will not
he let for some little time, ns they
will take a much shorter time to
complete, and it is not thought advis
able to have that part of the work
under construction until thc present
work? are vcry much advanced, so
that the whole work may bo brought
to completion at about tbe same
time, It was estimated by our en-

the whole, when completed, would
cost •Sal),000,000. If the contracts yet
to be let continue within the estim -

Dr. Reid announced that tbe Trent

art of clear expression aud simple and
direct methods of giving information
In the lecture ball before entering the

at the university was mathematics,

Ins possession even as a student, in
High School, and Intercollegiate de-
hales of a tew years back were never
mure brilliant than when Arthur Me-
Igben was one of the contestants.
Though  but a  member of  the House
of Commons for Portage la Prairie,
Manitoba, since 19C8, Mr. Meighen
bas advanced In the    Parliamentary
arena many useful subjects for consideration. Foremost among these is
the matter of rural credits, to which
he gave long study, and on which be
made brilliant, speeches in the House.
It is no small compliment to the
weight which his views carry that ho
a soon to see his ide is crystallized
into practical legislutii n, and will,
in this way, confer up< n the Dominion as a whole something that means
much is the providing of loans at
low rates of interest, to the farmers
Of  Canada.
Another subject, upon which Mr,
Meighen has taken advanced ground
is the question of ocean freight rates. This is understood to be a matter upon which Mr. Meighen, as Sol-
Icitor-Qeneral may be entrusted with
the work ol arranging Canada's part
in international action in this regard
and the occasion is likely to bc ofl-
ered   at   the  coming   visit  to  Canada
of the Dominion   Trade Commission.
Thc last, general election, when the
great economic question ol reciprocity With the l'nited States was to the
front, nil,r,d special i ppoitunity for
the I,est talents of Mr. Meighen. He
stumped a large part of Manitoba
and Saskatchewan on behalf of the
Conservative party, arguing the
trade question entirely from an economic standpoint, and time and again he routed the advocates of the
trade pact Irom their position on the
value of reciprocity to the Western
farmer. Though Portage la Prairie
had been a Liberal riding until re-
deemed by Mr. Meighen In 1908, the
young member showed his strength

Establishment Df City
Market is Urged
T. 1-:. L. Taylor and W. H. Potrufl
delegates from tbe Agricultural Association and Fanners Institute interviewed the eity oouncil on Friday and
urged ih it the oity obtain an option
on a site for a future market. Mr.
Taylor pointed out that real estate
values are inoreasing. There was, lie
said already considerable farming in
l he vicinity of the city which would
eventually make the establishment of
,i market necessary. Regarding an
aooount from the oity for wiring the
agricultural building he said that   it
had li i promised liy Dr. Sutherland
when mayor tbat the oity would do
the work free of oharge, The property worth $7000 would at the mid of
the lease revert to the city. The Agricultural  Saotety  could    only   just
milk ids ineel ami  were spending
what money they could In Improving
i In- ground',
Mayor MoKlnnon said that the idea
that the land would revart to the city
was a joke. Too many people took if
for granted that the city would do
work for not lung. He promised the
requests would be given due consideration.

Revelstoke, B.C.. Feb. 23rd, 1914
To the members of tbe Ladies Hospital      Guild   of      Queen  Victoria
Madame President and Ladies:—
I beg to submit my report for tbe
year  ending  Feb.   21th,   1914.
Ten regular and four special meetings were held during the year, and
the work of the Guild has been most
satisfactory. Two vcry successful
whist drives were held A jam and
pickle shower also a linen shower at
the opening of the hospital which
took place in June.
From these entertainments the sum
of $21)3.55  was realized.
The guild furnished the sun room,
end the nurses sitting room. They also supplied linen, china and curtain
materials for the whole hospital and
laid a sewing woman for making cut-
tains and various articles of linen,
etc. The demands have been very
heavy this year, owing to the increas
ed size of the hospital and the great
cr number of patients treated than
formerly. We sincerely hope for an
increase in our membership this year
as we feel that all the ladies in Revelstoke should be interested and willing to help to raise funds for tbe
good work being done.

Thus arc things gone about differently. When our suflragistB paraded in Washington, American freemen, bold, rugged creatures, noble in
the superiority of sex, disrupted the
marching columns of women by jeering them and advising them to return
to the cook Btove, says the Chicago
Tribune. When Parisian suflragistB
paraded in Paris, youthful gallants
and elderly satyrs so ogled, bowed
scraped, blew kisses, and tossed cou>-
pliment8 that the women bad to implore the police to clear the streets
of their embarrassing admirers, and
when all who had come to flirt had
le en driven away, the sidewalks were
rare and the parade was abandoned
for lack of observers to give it a
value. Thus do two great nations by
different methods get the same result.
While Vancouver and British Columbia have been busy exploiting
commercial possibilities, there is an-
c-ther natural .ihsi-i which seems to
lavs been altogether overlooked, and
that is the wonderful scenery, uccord
Ing to Mr, Robert H. Mansfield,
American consul, who recently came
here from Switzerland, whore he rep-
if sen ted his government for eight
Uritish Columbia, Mr. Munslleld
says, is much more picturesque than
Switzerland, This province has more

i.ni. Mr. Mansfield suid yesterday,
Un- situation ol Vancouver, the Inlet
i.ml the mountains beyond, remind!
one a great deal of Lake Zurich, a
lung, narrow bodv of water, and the
mountain scenery beyond.
in Switzerland they have exploited
the scenery, or, us Mr. Munslleld puts
it, "capitalized their scenery." Switzerland has no natural resources and
the people make the most of that
which tbey have, the scenery; and
British Columbia lias not only about
every natural resource, but scenery
greater than that ol Switzerland. In
addition, one of the things which is
lery attractive to Mr. Manslitld after
hiS residence in Switzerland, is the
fact that tourists who come to British Columbia not only will find all
the scenery they want, the mountain
peaks snow-capped, grc=n valleys,
canyons and inpenetrable mountain
fastnesses, but here there nre game,
and lish in abundance.
The man of energy tires of de lux
accommodations for tourists in Switzerland. He does not tare to bc taken to a mountain-peak hotel to find
there every comfort afforded in tho
best hotels. If he wants beauty unadorned he should come tr British
Columbia,  Mr.  Mansfield  remarked.
And a great part of this tourist
travel which annually crosses tho
continent und thc Atlantic, can be
changed to come to British Columbia
it being possible, with proper advertising, to bring this change about.
Uritish Columbia, Mr. Mansfield says
has been exploited purely from its
Commercial side. In Switzerland the
capitalization of scenery means an
annual expenditure of 8160,000,000 in
thnt country by tourists, and that
money  is left there.
Mr. Mansfield expresses the opinion
that next year will afford a great opportunity for British Columbia to
place before the world her wonderful scenery, for thc Panama-Pacific
exposition in San Francisco will
bring enormous crowds to the Pacific
coast, and there ought to be a large
number travel via Canada one way
or the other.

Attributes of Ideal

The following letter describing the
ideal woman has won a prize of $100
i tiered by a newspaper:—Men of all
ages bnve had their ideals of woman
hood, nnd it is from thc earliest of
these authorities that we learn tho
great truth that the price of a virtuous woman is far nbove that oi
rubies. This quality of virtue iB essential us it includes loyalty to all
home relationships. The nevt char -
octeristic is a good, lovable, cheerful
c'isposition; this is the centre from
which radiates all home happiness.
Coupled with this should be sound
common sense and self reliance. These
oic largely indebted to good health,
which I consider a necessary attri -
lute. I should like my wife to be
well  bred,   as so   much   depends  upon
this. If she be so, she will under -
stand housekeeping, be tidy, not e_-
travagant and able to adapt herself
to good society. It is desirenble
tbat a girl have a good education or
at least, such as will enable her to
appreciate and encourage the hope*

my wife to be sociable, and generous
to those in circumstances less favorable than our own, and should be
glad to see her interested in philanthropise work. Let her possess just
that proportion of good looks which
proceeds from a wholesome disposi -
tion. Above all, 6he must be tbe
willing companion of my joys and
