There ia the moat perfect organization

What are supposed to be the remains of three men were brought in
today in a bucket. A skeleton was
found near the Elk Lumber Company's
mill and waa immediately taken to

The work of rebuilding the town has
already started. Fifteen carloads of
lumber arrived today and every man

Other small buildings arc being

business in many lines will lie resumed.
A safe expert today opened 15 safes.
and the contents of twelve were found
all right. None nf the bank sates
have yet been opened, or in the principal business houses, as they are too
hot yet.
As far us can be ascertained in conversation with business men, nearly
all will rebuild and resume business
as soon as the insurance is adjusted.
Exaggerated reports ate being sent

A persistent report lias been current
aince the beginning of the Elk Valley
contlagration that the major number
of insurance companies are protected
from paying the claims of the fire
sufferer- by a buah fire clause in the
policies. It ii gratifying to learn that
all companies 10 the B. C. Mainland
Underwriters' association, who are
thus protected, bave agretd to overlook thia clause and, furthermore, will
waive all the usual technicalities.
A number of local officeB have been
burning the midnight juice in the
preparation of the "proolB of loss," and
are intent on allowing a typically
western spirit by paying the clainiB
with aa much despatch aB a due
amount of caution will allow.
Whether outside ofiices will refuse
to overlook the buah fire clause, which
exempts certain companies from reimbursing fire aulTorers who loae their
effects aa a direct or indirect result of
a buah fire, remains to be seen.

The hope of the men lies iu tlie prospect of trainmen, including engineers,
firemen and conductors joining them,
and these are expected by the strikers
to inform the company in the course
of a few days that they cannot con
tinue to operate trains which have not
beeu properly inspected. Much there,
fore depends on the trainmen, but
even without their assistance the
strikers themselves expresa confidence
of winning.
Locally mattera are progressing
quietly and there has been nothing in
the way of a disturbance of any sort.
The strikers are determined that
out-idere Bhall uot be brought in to
work in the shops here and are using
all their influence to prevent those
that have come in from remaining.
Meetings are lieing held daily in
Selkirk hall, but as yet there has
been no demonstration of any description.
The C,P.R. is said to have already
had assurance of all it needs in the
Old Country and the United Stales to
man its shops. There is nothing in
the Statute books to prevent importing all the men it requires Irom the
Old Country. The Alien Labor Law
would prevent tho engagement ol
men under contract io the United
States, but thia ia easily got round
and unless the company's expectations miscany, it will have nn trouble
in filling the strikers' places.

Mayor Lindmark and Aldermen
Foqte, Stone, Sawyer, Lefeaux, and
Woodland, present.

From the acting chief of police reporting on the alarms of fire at the
C.l' R. section house near the shops,
and at the Molsons Bank.—Filed.
From the superintendent of the
power house reporting on the operation of the light and power plant for
July. The report stated that tbe
plant had been working satisfactorily,
and that both light and power dynamos were O. K. The load was increas
ing on the power dynamo, which was
now about 10 k.w. The lighting
plant ran a total of 325 hours, generating 17.320 k.w.—Filed.
From T F. Sinclair in connection
with the bond for the contract for the
sewerage construction. Mr. Sinclair
stilted that in hia opinion tho bond
was correct. The city claim that they
ire not liable for the premiums for
more than $2,000, which bond was to
bind Mr. Sinclair to enter upon the
contract if the aowerage doboTrlures
are Bold, and not on the full amount
when the work was dune. A reply to
that effect will be sent to Mr. Sinclair.
From J. H. Jackaon, city auditor,

The bv-law authorizing the borrow-
ing of the sum uf $13,000 Irom the
Molsona Bank to meet the current
legal expenditure of the city for 1908,
before the reveuuo from the taxpayers
becomes due, was read the third timo
and passed with the unanimous consent of the council.
The mayor said that owing to the
fact that the city ollice work waB a
long way behind, he had asked Mr.
Floyd to remain a month to assist, iu
the work until it wa. caught up with.
A resolution to this effect was p-iased
by the council.
Aid. Foote said that there waB too
much water being used on gardens
and lawns, and that the city tanks
were nearly empty which was a serious!
condition in case .if lire, this dry
weather. He urged lhat the people
be informed that all sprinkling must
atop except between 7 aud 9 p.m. The
council recognising tbat a shortage of
water now would be a dangerous con.
tingency in case of lire, resolved that
measures be taken to stop unnecessary
The council also agreed that the
superintendent of the water works be
instructed to keep a check on the
man who sprinkles tho streets and to
see that no more water iB used than
neceasaty and that, such sprinkling ia
to be stopped it deemed advisable. A
deputation from residents outside the
city limits, near the south track,
waited on the Council to kgow what
waa to he done regarding tbe water
pipe in their vicinity. The mayor
said that au inch pipe weuid le put in
from Swan Carlson's house to the city
limits. The question of scavenging
was brought up and a settlement with
W. Fleming arranged for.
Tbe accounts were passed and the
meeting terminated.

will find every satisfaction in wearing a
" CARTER." For this reason it is universally known as "the hat ior particular men."
Made from a light, flexible, yet durable felt,

In addition to this the hat has a new leather
attachment which makes it most comfortable
and easy fitting. The "CARTER" is also
a leader in style, and the shape shown here
is one of the most popular in the fashionable
world of to-day.
A new hat would smarten you up for
'the rest of the season. Choose it here.
Choosing is easy when you see yourself in
the mirror with a "CARTER." Call at our

1 onsiderable interest is being
evinced over the striking ol the
tux rate and in what measure the
city has fulfilled its first intention
of cutting out all municipal work,
except where urgent cull.- make
such work necessary. Although
the public express objection nt the
expenditure of their bard-earned
money without any real tangible
result, yet it ir a very ilillictilt
matter to determine ui the beginning ot the financial year that
no .-treet or other work will
he done, and thut expenditure generally will he cut down. Ar the
year advances, little side issuer

their pockets besides those which
emanate from the city treasurer.
The public un- looking ior a reduction in their taxes and trusting lo
the Council that by the keeping
down of civic expenditure this year
this will he an accomplished fact.
We are glad to see that u start liar
been made with the water antl that
that burden on tbe city has heen
materially reduced. On the other
hand a growing city necessitates a
large expenditure, hut the asuesi)-
ment of ratable property which is
increasing year by year should
counterbalance much expenditure
antl in a measure leave a free opening for the people to enjoy a little
easy living, at the same time giving tlie rising antl coming generation an opportunity to share in
tlie beautifying of the city. Permanent public works Bhould he the
aim of tlie Council.
It is gratifying to see that the
city council, in their endeavors to
benelit the citizens and the living,
hnve not forgotten the respect duo
to tlie dead, in tbat they have been
taking active steps to clean up the
cemetery uml make, it us neat and
tidy as a place of thai description
ahould be. A grave yard is a depressing spot al lhe best of tinier,
hul doubly so when the grass grows
lung ami rank, the paths by long
neglcol become covered in weeds,
the very lomb .-toner that, mail;
llie lasl resting place of those dear
to ies, allowed lo fall over anil
decay. The loasl we can do ir to
make our cemetery neat antl clean
ami show lhat we respect the dead.
The motive in Ihir respect should
he mure apparent among our people, ilu- sentiment which lingers
toward the departed may he made
even a pleasure ii we take pains to
refresh the environment where they
are sleeping their long sleep. Now
that the city council hnve sel tbe
example, the people too should follow it up and make our cemetery a
spot whore our care and respect for
the dead can be seen, a spot which
should he typical nf neatness and
not a mournful decaying wilderness.

The discovery and application ot these

The Price
Louisiana  Adopts   a Law   to
Save Them.
Providence Journal : The statement lins been nimle anil not contradicted, that in past winters ns many
ns a million robins have been killed
in Enuisuuii alone, partly fur food,
partly in order to protect growing
fruit. Tbere was obviously need of a
law for tbeir protection; and through
the unwearying efforts of the Aububon
society such a law has at last been
enacted hy the Louisania legislature.
Hereafter this warfare upon one of the
most ti-iefii! as well «s most attractive
songbirds must cease. Had it gone
unchecked, its victims might in time
have become ns rare as tlie bobolinks
now are. For in the case of migrating
birds it is nut enough that they should
be protected in their breeding haunts;
irreparable damage may be done during the periods of migration nr when
they are in winter quarters.
Few birds deserve better treatment
of the human race than tbe thrushes,
to which family our misnamed robin
belongs, Tbo accusation, that they
eat small fruits is, of course, true.
But the amount of destruction thus
wrought is easily exaggerated, and
what there is may bo largely averted
by a few simple precautions. On the
other hand, the robin is probably
more valuable to the farmer than
almost any other single bird. It is a
constant forager for insects which the
farmer finds it most difficult to control
and it destroys obnoxious caterpillars
in great abundance. Moreover, there
is reason to believe that the robin
prefers wild fruits to cultivated; if
these be reasonably abundant, it will
let the gardens alone. Its diligence
in hunting its insect, food is a matter
of common observation; note how it
runs across the lawn or gaiden digging up and eating pestiferous cutworm. A careful scientific examination
of its diet justifies the conclusion that
it should be protected by law.
There are other southern stateB
where leeislation like that secured in
Louisiana is needed. The north has
not been guiltless in its treatment of
the songbirds, but an enlightened
public sentiment has aecomplished
much for their protection. The shooting of robins in this state, for examp'e
has lieen practically suppressed by the
imposition ol heavy fines upon offenders. The word should go forward
vigorously so long as there are
wretches who destroy the feathered
friends of man.

justice to the viands laid before then
Mayor   Lindmark    tis.k   tins   chair,
and after the toast of the King, started
upon a long toast list, 'lhe I '.min
ion and   the   Province   wuro  ably   n-
iponded to by A. McRae and   Robt.
Gordon. A series Of interesting remarks   (rum   the   aldermen   and   ix
aldermen on tbe Oity of Revelstoke,
brought nut some isllnut features of
the progress of tlm oity.
.1, Abrahamson reviewed the water
und light plant, as u great asset, to the
city as   well   aa  a   revenue   producer.
The various city olli ills prusmil
spoke at. more or leas length on city
development ami all teaiilying their
appreciation ol the gisid work that
Mr  Fluyd had done and how valuable
bis services bud lieen to Kevelstoke
and how the citizens gener • Ily regrei

Mr. F,eld, as eily assessor, said thai
there wus un increase this yiar in
valuation of $600,000.

expressed regret at Mr. Floyd's departure and wished him all future
F\ 11. Guft'ey on being called upon
to tell something about the Rig Bend,
said that there was a great future
before it, in timber, lands and minerals. He urged that transportation
be secured there and pointed out that
the development would bo enormous if
that were done. He vehemently
claimed that height rates up the Bend
were practically prohibitive and were
retarding commerce, and there was
urgent necessity fur cheaper trans-
imitation, firstly round Death and
Priest Rapids and then oo the upper
Columbia. The development of the
llend would materially benelit Revelstoke and make it a big rich city.
The country was rich and Revelatoko
was its natural headquarters and
must ol necessity develop as well.
C. R. Macdonald responded to the
toast of the Agricultural  Asaociation.
The Board of Trade, Press and
ither city toasts were all ably responded to, thu sentiment uf Mr. II

value to the city during his term ot
city clerk being the main theme in
each case.

Kevelstoke deeply and hud done all he
could to make the city progress. He
thanked the citizens generally for
their kindness and testified to his
courteous treatment by the various
mayors and aldermen. He would always keep a warm place in his heart
Ior Revelstoke and pointed out tbat he
hoped that his successor would receive
the same courtesy from the city gen
orally as he had.
The Mayor reviewed in brief the
chief features of lhe city's work touching on its progress and municipal improvements. On behalf of the citizens

o( $100 as a mark of their esteem for
bis valuable sei vices.
Mr. Floyd replied feelingly, expressing his appreciation ol such a hand

sociable entertainment,
