Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 9.—Fielding in
an interview yesterday on the financial
situation said no doubt there were
special circumstances which increased
the monetary Btriugency in some
quarters but the general foundation of
the difficulty was to be found in the
fact that the business ol the country
expanded more rapidly than the
available capital, The difficaiby was
one of the penalties of prosperity.-
Watektowx, N. Y,| Nov. 9.—A
heavy snowstorm, the hrst of tlie season, ia prevailing in Nortli New York.
It began at an early hour thia morning and continued until 8 o'clock.
Several incites of snow fell.
Everything Afloat on the Lakes
Being Made Ready.
Nelson, Nov. 8.—While no word
has yet been received by the local
authorities, which heretofore has been
started early in Novombor, everything
is in readiness for the alternation ot
the time table and route. Captain
Gore reports that on Slocan lake the
steamers and barges are ready to take
up the extra work whenever culled
upou. Upon tbe Arrow lakes the
Kosshtiul is slill undergoing repairs,
her hull and machinery being completely overhauled, As soon us tbis
vessel is once more iu commission the
Kootenay will also he looked after in
a similar way, but it is probable that
the winter schedule will lie in effect
before that timo. The Arrow lake
baiges are all ready and Captain Gore
is now looking after tl.e ice breakers.
Every effort will be made this winter
to keep tbe channel open below
Nakusp to Deer Park in order that
the ranchers on Lower Arrow lake
shall not be cut off from the outside
world which happened last winter owing to the unprecedented conditions.
On Kootonay lake tl.e barges are
now all in order and there is a sullicient number ol boats to take care ol
the trallic.
Laborer Loses His Life From

Ed Rice, one of the bridge pang it

enquiries being mnde we learn that

in the act ol rolling off the edge of the

Washington, Nov. 8.—In twenty
yean the timher supply in the United
Statei, on government reserves and
private holdings, at tl.e present rate
of cutting, will be exhausted, although
it is possible that the growth ol that
period might extend tl.e arrival of
this time another live years.
This announcement was made today
by Gifford I'inchot, tho government
forester, who has just returned from a
six months' inspection trip on which
be travelled 10,000 milei. In sounding his warning, Mr. I'inchot urged
that the danger of the situation should
not be underestimated. He said that
tbe United Statei usee more timber
per capita than any other country,
and that every man, woman and child
would be affected. He decried the
policy ol discounting the future of the
country by failure to protect the natural reiourcei and he advised each one
who has not already done so to read
President Roosevelt's speech at Memphis on lhii geusial subject.
Nelson, B.C., Nov. 8.—James Johnstone is about to start on an organization tour throughout the province
in the interests of the Fruit and
Produce Exchange, head oftice, Revelstoke, of which organization Mr.
Johnstone is president. Mr. Johnstone says that while the price of
apples is higher this year than it has
been before, provincial fruit growerB
are not getting even as high prices,
Two dollars a box is about all that
can be got here, while $2.50 and $3.50
are btiug obtained south of the line,
Usually the B. C. apple commands
the better price, Mr. Johnstone is ol
the opinion that this is wholly due to
the disunion existing among provincial fruit growers, thus leaving thsm
at the mercy ol the buyer. He
further thinks that the recent experience will promote a better feeling
in favor of the Fruit and Produce

Entertainment in Aid of Anti
Tuberculosis Society—Ama
teur Thespians and  Band
The Revelstoke Amateur Dramatic
Club am again to be congratulated on
the admirable manner in which they
played the tliree act comedy "Jane"
last nighl, The performance was a
benefit in aid nf the Revelstoke Anti-
Tuberculosis Society and to help in
raising funds for this work the Amateurs and tbe Independent Band very
kindly lent their services. Jane has
been recently staged nnd attained
great success, tl.e amateurs going
through their work with highly creditable skill.
Last night their acting was no less
praiseworthy and the many laughable
and awkward situations throughout
the piece, caused a continuous ripple
of mirth over the audience. Eaoh
member of the club played his and her
part carefully and indeed showed some
really excellent acting, since Jane is
by no means an easy play to produce.
The stage setting was a lino piece of
work and exceedingly dainty.
During the intervals and between
the acts the Independent Band played
selections of good music. The musical
ability nnd smart precision of the hoys
reflect the highest credit on the band
as an institution, and Revelstoke can
boast oi as fine uu aggregation of
musical talent aa any other city in the
Last night the music, well chosen
and well played, could not lail to have
pleased all present. The ladies of the
Anti-Tuberculosis Society have worked
hard to ensure the success of this their
first venture and every credit is con.,
ing ll.e Amateur Thespians and the
Independent Band lor their generous
assistance. The only drawback to
the entertainmeut was the cruelly
cold state of the hall, the audience
being uuable to take oft' their wraps
tl.e whole evening. We think that
tbe management of tl.e opera house
should always be most particular in
this, especially as winter is coming on,
as sitting in the cold iB not hy any

Repeated requests for the construction ol a foot and traffic bridge across
the Columbia have been made to the
government and so tar have met with
no response. For the past twelve
months representations have been
made by local bodies to the authorities
urging them to take some action aud
pointing out the necessity ol such
work being done. The C. P. K. are
now actively eugaged in making preparations for the erection of the steel
work ior their new bridge and already
portions oi the foot path and railings
protecting -nch have been removed.
Last year, Revelitoke ai 0 whole,
approached the Premier ol the province isying ber caie belore him aud
demonitrattng the necessity ol some
action king taken whereby accesB to
tbe valuable lands on the west side of
the Columbia could be gained and
such lands developed and improved by
direct communication with the city.
It wai pointed out to the Premier that
it was not then too late lor the government to make some arrangement with
the C. P R. for the construction oi a
trarfic bridge and the local boards who
had met the Premier were informed by
him that he wai already in communication with the railway company to
that object. That was a long time
ago and in ipite of the urging of the
case and the validity of the claim of
those people acrois the river for asiis-
itance iu thii directiun, we are no
better oil now and in fact worse off
than before. No better time could bs
taken than the present to point out
how great ii lhs need ol means ol foot
and tratlic communication with the
other lide ..I the river. The present
structure ii being demolished, or at
leait portion! ol it are being removed
to prepare for tbe new structure and
the foot way is without exaggeration
dangerous it being almost unprotected,
A large number of schoolchildren and
others uie the bridge daily and in
doing 10 will soon run a far greater
risk thin even now as the work goes
on. We cannot blame the railway
company, in as much as it cannot be
put up to then, to supply trallic com.
munication unless they wish to, their
chiel object being to build a new steel
t uck bridge and to carry on the work
so as not to impede or delay the train
trallic. The matter il purely a government one, and as the winter comei
the danger to pedeitrians will be
greatly increaied. We would urge the
giivernmcnt therclore to look into tbis
matter aud when it has been explained
to them by the member ot the riding
that (hey would receive considerable
return from the money spent on such
communication and that by not doing
hensive scheme for common action
throughout Canada. Wc sec what
wonderlul progress Germany has made
during the pnst thirty years in an
industrial way. From a group ol
practically unknown stales she has
risen to a position of eminence among
the ...11..;.fact..ling nations ol the
world. She has been able to do this
because by advanced methods of organization and technical training, she
haa made her working unit the most
effective in the world. Elliciency Iibb
been the master word liy which she
has conjured success from the midst
of difficulties."
As years advance increased competition renders the possibilities of success more dillicult, not only with
ind.vi.luals but for the ration. Science has worked many changes and
modern methods have replaced those
of long ago. Germany has started the
other nations in the formation of
technical schools, the value ol practi
cal and well equipped workmen being
lully demonstrated. Any nation not
so equipped will lind tbe race for success in competition extremely bard.
Canada has just entered on her period
of expansion, and to be able to compete successfully ill manufactures
with the nations of the world, no
hindrance must be given to her workmen and those who in the schools are
preparing lor commercial lile. The
Canadian contends that he can take
bis place alongside any nation for
national litness and ability and it remains to be seen whether that aptitude, by the institution of technical
education, shall be nurtured, encouraged and developed into an active
lorce with tbe greatest degree of effective result.

Business Centre of ihe Kooi-
enays—Citizens Faith in its
A noticeable feature in tlie sueiil
atmosphere ul Revelitoke is the insured confidence with whicli her citizens
look forward to the ii.inieJi.iie future
and the laitb which they place it. her
certain development into a prosperous
business and distributing centre.
This reliance is all the more remarkable and laudable inasmuch as Kevelstoke has never had a boom of any
kind which frequently acts as au incentive to erect large buildings and
expensive business houses. While
even younger rivals have in many
ways attained a certain amount uf
pre-eminence still lhe reputation
gained by uur home city is based upon
solid foundations of oommeroisl in-
stiuct and business ability, the chief
sources of prosperity.
Our business men hnve had .vide
expeiience, which ii an excellent
touch,'r, and slatting from the beginning in a sniull way have succeeded in
building up large connections and
extensive trade, which today has put
Revelstoke iu the forefront of inland
cities. These men having been
through tl.e mill and every stage of it
know frum actual experience the condition under which our business has
commenced, grown and thrived, and
old timers can tell of the days here
when our lair city of today was a mere
c.tllectioii ol tents and huts, inhabited
by men in whose blood the indomitable lire ol progress turned and who
today are, as pioneers ol Revelstoke,
taking their well earned reward.
Revelstoke's chief claim on the future
is her geographical situation. Through
her lies the only avenue by which the
well knuwn district ol the Silvery
Slucan, the enormous wealth nl the
gold properties and mineral claims
aud mines ot Lardeau and Trout I.ake
aud tlie placer diggings and gold bearing quartz fields of the Big Hend can
be approached. Kast of Revelstoke
lies the Illecillewaet valley where
many possibilities now lie dormant;
west ol her the Jurdon and Eagle
passes ure at all times interesting
fields. Again let us turn to another
industry, that ol lumbering; are wo
not u ceutro ior u vast aud almost
unlimited area ot forest wealth, situated at all points ol the compass, con
trolled and operated by local men and
local industry? This forest wealth
will at a later period have tu pass
through Revelstoke, and injreover,
the large quantities of supplies lor
camps, mills, mines and construction
work ure handled at this the distributing centre. Thus then is our city
the central point Ior all this wealth
und every section uf the suulh country
as well as tlie Big Bend, and the eaet
and west points will be nnd arc draw-
ing large supplies from Revelstuke and
swelling thc balances ol her stores and
hotels. Few cities in tl.e interior can
claim tl.e advantages given to us here,
through our geographical position.
Nelson is too (ar to the south and
not in direct cuminunication with the
great highway, whereas Revelstoke
situated on the mnin line, on the
navigable waters ot tbe Columbia,
which tup tbe rich resources of the
Big Bend, can in every way substantiate l.er claims.
0! ull the districts tributary to us
Lardeau and Trout Lnke sections are
particularly nuticeuble and as the
headquarters fur all mining and lumbering interests in those sections we
should never let any opporlunity pass
in evincing interest iu the people
there. We take it then, thut few cities
011 the main line ut the C. P. It. can
come up to Revelitoke Ior centralization, and as development goes on so
will every brunch of industry thut has
any connection with the city. The
people firm in their belief in Revelitoke as a citv ol ever increasing
commerce, the centre ol a large und
rich area ol natural resources ol which
u ...e.c (ruction has been touched and
uu entre-pot fur unlimited trade as a
distributing centre, cun lightly und
conscientiously place their cuntidence
iu her future. Experience has made
our business men us enterprising as
they are and thc people itrengtheneJ
in their loyally to the city ol their
adoption ure making permanent
homes and building up big businesses
which must but grow in proportion as
tl.e cily eipandi. What more striking
evidence could be seen than in the
mauy valuable additions to residential
and business blocks, besides municipal
improvement! on a large scale! No
twu better mottoes and more appropriate for Revelstoke could have been
chosen than that ul "Opulens sine
Jubilate," und "I'er ardua ad a.tera,*'

Imperial Bank President Says
Criticism Unjust.
Tokonto, Out., November 8.—Emphatically the heads of two of the
largest banks deny the reports Irom
the West that the cropi cunnot.be
moved because the banks are unable
to advance the usual and necessary
I'uiids to the grain dealers. Ranged
with these ollieials, so lur as their
statement is concerned, were tliree
grain dealers, who were interviewed.
I). R. Wilkie. president of the Imperial Bunk, when asked Iur his views
with regard to the report from the
West, replied: "Upon my word, I
think it it most unjustifiable, it is
reported from the West that the crops
cannot be moved, not on account of
the shortage of cars, luck ol elevator
accommodation, or scarcity of Luke
vessel capacity, bul becauso the bunks
are unable to advance the usual and
necessary funds to the grain dealers.
That is a misstatement. Thc movement ot grain for speculators and
people who are going 'short' and 'long'
on the market has nothing to do with
the circulation ot money. The placing
of grain in elevators does not put one
dollar more into circulation.
"There is not u farmer in the Northwest," proceeded Mr, Wilkie, "that
I have heard of, win wants to market
his grain who has nut beeu able to get
cash for it."
CP.R.Official Says New Tarifi
Will Show Many Reductions.
WlMfiPEO, Nov.8—Assistant Freight
Trallic Manager Teters stated tuday
that there wns nu truth in the report
circulated throughout the west that
Che Canadian Pacilij intended raising
freight rates as much as thirty per
cent, in order to meet the ruling ol
the luilway commission for the estah-
ishment of equal rules between nil
points in lhe west. On the contrury
the new tariff will show more rcduc
tions than increases on western lines.
Mr. Peters said there would be very
considerable retluctiutis between eastern and western points, which local
western freights would be reduced in
ninny instances. Thc new tariff is to
be submitted tomorrow to tl.e Winnipeg Board of Trade, which will report
on it.

During Our Big TEN Days' Sale Our 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
wc 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 be left on
during the coming week, and some new ones will lie 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 are anxious to make
up the deficiency.
Among the lines we would call especial attention to arc:
Ladies' Coats and Skirts
Children's Coats and Dresses
