MACHINERY FOR OIL DRILLING
Anthony Anderson" Back—En-
thusiastic over Prospects
"I am more than ever convinced ot
tbe value of our property since witnessing the development of the Pennsylvania Oil Fields," said Anthony
Anuerson, secretary of the Canadian
Northwest Oil Co. Ltd. to a Victoria
Times reporter.
Mr. Anderson has just returned
from a trip to the eastern oil regions,
where he purchased a large quantity
of drilling and other machinery for
his company. One car load of this
hss already reached Macleod, the port
of entry for the district in wbiob the
company's wells are situated, and two
more car loads are en route. AH tbis
machinery is of the most modern
type, and when it is on tha ground
and installed, tbe work of sinking
new wells will be vigorously prosecuted.
Tbe directors have decinid that the
company's business demands tbe presence of a manager on the ground, and
C. C. Johns, a large shareholder, bas
been chosen lor the position. Mr.
Johns will proceed to the oil field in
a few days. A proposal from a big
contracting firm to build and operate
a sawmill on the property and an application fur the use of part of tbe
magnificent water power owned by
the company are under consideration.
Mr. Anderson was enthusiastic in
speaking-of ibe prospects of ihe com
pany. "'The people I met back east,"
said Jhe, "could not understand our
selling stock at $1 a share when I told
them the amount of our capitalization
1500,000 and the very large area of
oil lands which we own and control,
and seeing tbe conditions there, one
can understand their astonishment.
One instance of how things are done
iu Pennsylvania will illustrate. A
man near Butler saw indications of
oil on a cerlain farm. He approached
the owner, and after considerable negotiation managed to get a 21 years'
lease ot ten acres He sold or mortgaged all he possessed to raise money
to prospect his claim, and now he has
two fairly good flowing wells on the
ten acres. He gives the owner of the
land one eighth of all the oil and he
lias refused li ■ If a million cash for his
lease. A property like ours would be
capitalized for ten or twenty millions,
and peop'e would be jostling each
other to get stock at any price."
' From what I have seen," continued
.Mr. Anderson, "anil Irum what I know
about oui propel ty, I have no hesitation in saying it is quite within the
probabilities lhat Canadian North
West Oil will be selling for $5 a share
by the close of the present, year. The
t'nii ii Oil Co., of Oleum, Cat., which
recently increased its capitalization
from Ifl0,1100,00(1 to $20,000,000 has
declared a dividend of $2,000 per share
in addition to the regular monthly
dividend of 50 cents a share. That
sounds like Action but it is fact, and
as we have the oil, there is no reason
why our shareholders may not become
equally fortunate in time. Why, our
water power alone is estimated to be
worth $f.O >,0d0, the total capitalization ol the company. The talk of Ihe
directors of tbe Canadian North West
Oil C i disposing of their shares is
utter nonsense, as yuu may readi'y
understand after what I have told you.
The idea is preposterous and its, best
refutation is an examination of the
company's share register. On tbe
Other hand 1 may say, without a
breach of confidence, tbat ceitain of
the directors have been buying all tbe
shares tbey could get. Messrs. C. C
Johns, Wm.Turpel and W. Y. McCarter, who visited the company's property in Alberta recently are among these
buyers. A few irresponsible people
have been spreading rumors and
knocking tbe slock, ottering shares for
sale which they did not possess, but
these Teddy Bears' are harming only
tbeir own reputations."
During his eastern trip, Mr. Anderson visited a great many oil wells and
talked with many oil drillers and
operators, all of whom congratulated
bim on having secured for bis company tbe services of O. A. Slater, wbo
is recognized as one of tbe most ex
perienced and reliable drillers in
Pennsylvania. "Dan" knows the
company's property better than any
one man living, and he says he knows
"lhe oil is there." He is now on the
ground superintending tbe placing of
tbe second pjant, and be promises bis
employers sr.me first class wells in a
very short time.
"You can therefore says," said Mr.
Auderson in conclusion, that Canadian North West Oil is all right "
EXECUTIVE MEETING
Fruit and Produce Exchange of

A meeting of the executive board of
■ his organization was held in the City

211th, at 11 a.m.
The members present were, Jas.

Secretary Kootenay Fruit Orowers
Association, Nelson.
The work for the season wsb reviewed and a general lote of satisfaction
passed. It was very generally coo-
ceded that but for the Central distributing point tbe strawberry and small
fruit districts would bave been in a
demoralised state. The Central Ex
change was able to cope with the pre-
vailing conditions. Berries from all
points were on the market at one time
but were evenly distributed. Prices
were found to be lower than in past
seasons but tbe prevailing conditions,
monetary stringency and perhaps
what might be termed over-production
in as much aB all sectinus weie ship
ping at the same timewhen heretofore a
rotation of shipping has prevailed,
was taken ss satisfactory evidence
that the organization had well proved
its worth demonstrating very conclusively the necessity of such an associ
ation of fruit growers to combat the
competition of other markets Tbe
lack of proper facilities in tbe different
sections was discussed, proper accommodation for handling and shipping
the fruit and produce in certain districts will have to be improved upon.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Socialism
Aug. 29th, 1908.
Kdltor Maii.1Ikiiai.ii.
Dear Sir,—In your issue of 19th
inst. you published a letter signed
"Via Media" which does not mi rit a
Socialist's attention, except for propaganda purposes. Your correspondent
betrays an ignorance of Socialist principles that, had he any common e<-nse
would have kept bim from making
himself ridiculous as he uow has by
going into press. We are extremely
obliged to him for telling us that Socialism is really Olassjsm, truly a most
original discovery on his part. Next
we are told that all we . cek U our own
ease and gratification of our natural
passions. Personally I can see neither
of these objects in sight and can only
reply that Ssicialism stands llatly for
justice and if it is just and right, that
the masses of wage slaves should have-
some ease of their burdens and a
chance lo enjoy the beauties and
pleasures of this world, then no doubt
Socialism supports it, although I must
admit that I have not seen this particular clause worded in this way in
the platform of the party.
With regard to the values produced
by individuals as illustrated by the
manual laborer and the man who
works a machine or for whom a machine works; the difference in value
produced practically amounts to tho
producing value of the machine and
the machine ia called oapital and capital is the value stolen Irom generations
of wage slaves by tlieir masters and
should be social or publio property
and not owned by a few who take the
whole product and pay the slaves
wages and when thoy cannot sell these
products at a profit give the slave his
beloved privilege of bunting a job.
Yes, tho son and rain and natural
forces are quite a help and I presume
that "Via Media" would not recommend private ownership ol same?
Referring to men who recognise
natural laws or harness natural forces
whom we call inventors. I have yet
to bear of the really beneficial inventor to hnmani'y who worried his hesd
about royalties and rewards, providing
he had enough to keep himself going,
half ss much as "Via Media" and
others of his kind wbo never did and
never will invent anything, not even
an objection to Socialism that merits
any consideration.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I would
like to ask "Via Media" what would
be the economic effect upon industry
and commerce if the masses lived
soberly, industriously and economically, as suggested in the last paragraph of his letter?
Yours truly,
W. W. Lefeaux.

Yon Will Wait
The Toymaker
The Victoria Times of last Saturday
has the following to sny about the
performance of the Toym ker in that
city :
A most pleasing production of The
Toymaker was that given by the San
Francisco Opera Company at the Victoria last night, and the large audience that assembled thoroughly
enjoyed the piece. In the first place
the opera suited the company as it
gave excellent opportunities for their
male voices, which are exceptionally
strong in contrast with the female
chorus. The singing of the monks in
the opening scene at once put the
auditors on good terms. As Brother
"Matthew, a great  hit was made   by
Russell Powell, whose rloli voice
was most suited to the role.
Teddy Webb shone in the part of
Johannes Guggenheim, the toymaker,
and developed a Gem au accent that
lew, who have heard him in English
roles, would have suspected. Aimee
Leicester ably supported him in tbe
humorous passages as Frau (luggen-
heimer.
As the doll, or Elsa, Mies Mabel
Uay played splendidly, and she won
warm applause both for her clever
acting aud lur delightful singing.
Eugene Weiber sang tbe part ol
Frederick with sympathy and contributed much fun in his work with
M'ibs Day. The dolls were well represented by the Misses Milliard, Norton,
Manning, McLennan, Grey and
Gentry.
Tbe piece was superbly dressed, as
are all tbe operas in the repertoire ol
the company. This afternoon a matinee performance of the Toymaker was
given, and to-night the company will
close a most sucoesslul week's engagement here with tbe same production.
It is to be hoped that a capacity house
will bid farewell to the company,
which is one of the strongest ever
playing a long engagement bere.
The Toymaker will be given bere at
tbo opera house on   Saturday, Sept.
12th, and matinee at 2:110.

APPROVED  SCHOOL SYSTEM
In regard to the relationship ol
tbe principal uf our Canadian public schools in the pupil?, the following from the- Hamilton, Ont.,
Time?, may prove interesting to
Revelstoke readers. Tiie approved
school system now to be put in
force places the responsibility of
promoting pupils entirely upon
the Principal. He is ilm? made n
law unto himself. Il is an onerous
ami dangerous responsibility lo
place upon a teacher, in the insane eauernees of the department
to escape "examinations" it places
upon the teacher a duty wbioh in-
can discharge only by imposing
examinations himself, Ami when
he ha? done his best it BubjecU
him lo undeserved censure and
•suspicion, lt is a step towards
a', olutism
tage ot tl.eni. While thine who
are hunling enthusiasts take their
li'l of pleasure, they, us a rule, give
little heed to the "necessity (here is
of doing something tn improve
sport generally and trust too much
to kindly nature to continually
provide ihe sporting where-with-all.
On ihe other hand there is the
practice of unscrupulous hunters
mul over zealous Youth killing
game anil catching tish out of season, as well as "hogging" it in season. This condition of things
should not he allowed to continue
ami if we wisli to conserve our game
and fish as well as improve sporting facilities generally llevelsloke
will have to seriously lake some
effective measures for the protection
of these asBets. We understand
that there is a fish and game protection society, or at least l|u* semblance of one, in llevelsloke and
this body should wake up to the
fact that they are doing nothing
towards currying out any reforms
and improvements for the increase
.mil protection of game in this district, wbicli reforms are badly
needed. The members should he
rounded up and business done
which will be for lhe benefit of
sport in general. This is a case
where party, politic or other sectional oliquiem should be put
down, and any movement suggested for the betterment of sport and
hunting should have full consideration as lo its merits and not
turned down without some good
and justifiable reason. We think
thai ii lhe Fish and (iaine Protection Society were revived and remodelled, much good would result
and onr game would benefit. Local
sportsmen should he sportsmen in
every sense of tlio word.

A GREAT TREAT
Popular Irish Drama at Ope a
House on Monday
A treat is in BtorO fur the RevelBtoke
public and visitors Id the oity on Men
day night when the Amateur Dramatic
Cluli presents that peer of Irish dram t"
"Conn, The Bhaughraun," With chir
aoieristio euersy the members of the
club    have   applied    themselves   dilli
gently in the  task   of   producing this
popular play  in  a manner which will
redound to their credit.   Special seen
cry has been  painted  (or tbe occasion
and every detail  carefully looked after
bo that the play will long la. remembered as one ol lhe most linisheil pro
diictions ever witnessed ill Reveletoke
Careful attention has beeu given to
the casting of the play so lhat the
different memlters may lit. in as nut
urally as possible, to the role lor which
tbey are cast. Ol the play itself little
need be said, it ia so well known. A
typical Irish drama, full nl wit ami
humor, with here and there a touch of
pathos, at times intensely emotional
and again thrilling with excitement.
No more suitable play could have
been chosen Inr presentation on Labor
Day evening, and we predict a bumper house. There will be no long
waits as arrangements have lieen made
to handle the scenery so Hist the cus-
t. mary ledioiiB waits will be particularly noticeable by their absence. Be
