Territorial Army in Power
Great Britain
London, April 3.—With the stroke
of midnight, Qreat Britain's volunteer
army became a thing of the past, after
an existence of 49 yoars, and now the
territorial army introduced by Secretary Haldane reigns instead. The
volunteer forces throughout the country, celebrated their "last post" at
their respective headquarters by dinners and other celebrations, the festi
vities however, taking on somewhat of
a sad character owing to the disappearance of the old association.
An midnight struck, there wore
stirring scenes as to who would be the
first to enlist in tho new body, many
hundreds being thus recruited, in
some cases practically tbe whole regi
meut took the new regimental title in
the new force.

FAREWELL
BANQUET
H. A. Brown Entertained by
the Citizens of Revelstoke—
Recipient of Handsome Present—Successful Function.
Ex mayor H. A. Brown was lender-
ed a farewell banquet on Thursday
night at the Union Hotel Restaurant,
by the citizens of Revelstoke on the
occasion of Ilia departure from the city.
Mayor Lindmark took the chair, there
being a large, representative gathering
of business and commercial men.
After the company had partaken of
the good things prepared for them,
Mayor'Lindmark presented Mr. Brown
with a handson e gold beaded umbrella
on behalf of the citizens of Revelstoke.
saying that Mr. Brown had had a long
and honorable career in tbe city from
the early days. He thanked him for
valued services and said that the city
bad been glad of them. Mr, brown
had done his best for all and he was
sorry that the hour ol parting with
him had come. In roviewing the
ollice of mayor, which the departing
guest had filled in a capable and business like way, he exhorted the people
to stand hy the nmyor and city council and help tbem in their work for
the city's welfare.   (Cheers.)
H. Floyd expressed his regret that
Mr. Brown was leaving and testified
as to his ability and value ss a city
official saying that tbe water and
light plant, which was a valuable
asset, was due to his energy and perseverance. The city was losing an
able citizen and he asked all to give
Mr. Brown the glad hand of parting.
Mr. Brown, who was greeted with
loud cheers, thanked all tor tbe gift.
He reviewed his career in the oity
and said that he was convinced from
the lirst that Revelstoke would forge
ahead out of the forest and stumps.
He was confident of tbe city's success
and urged tbe people not to be afraid
of branching out and pushing. He
aaid tbat although he bad not got
along with everybody yet he had done
what he conscientiously judged to be
wlfat was beet lor Rev lstoke. He
touched on the water and light system
as the result of much controversy and
some opposition in the early days.
He pointed out that the city would be
well looked alter by Mayor Lindmark,
who was progressive aud energetic.
He said that Mrs. Brown's health
necessitated a change ol air and climate, and that tbey both needed a rest.
He would always take a lively interest
in the city and its progress and would
entertain kind feelings for all and regretted that circumstances forced his
departure, but that he would frequently return to visit his many friends.
(Cheers.)
W. H. Humphreye then gave an
excellent rendering of " The Dear
Homeland." The toast of tbe oity was
responded by Aldermen Foote and
Lefeaux, and Messrs. H. Manning, T.
E. L. Taylor, J. Abrahamson snd C.
M. Field, the letter touching on fruit
growing here and pointing out that be
raised every year a big basket full of
"crabs." (Laughter.) Tbe speakers
relerred to the city's progress and work
and urged the people to keep busy and
not take much stock of tbe dull times.
Tbey regretted Mr. Brown's departure
and wished him every success. \V.
M. Lawrence in his usual humorous
stylo gave a rendering ol "Tbe Laird
o' Cockpeo."
Tbe toast of tbe Schools was repon-
ded to by F. Bourne, H. N. Coursier
and O. Barber. Mr. Coursier said that
the trustees regretted Mr. Drown,b
departure testifying to bis qualities
and abilities as a good citizen and
civic official. Regarding the school he
complained of the lack ol interest
taken in tbe sobocls by the people and
their non-appreciation ot the school
business. Education was extremely
important and deserved every encouragement. Tbe board did their best to
obtain the best results. H. Manning
and R. N. Doyle sIbo responded on behalf of the schools. G. Barber then
sang "In the North Sea lived a whale."
B. R. Atkins in reply to the toast of
the Dominion, said that he as a Dominion serVhiit hid treated all parties
alike as far as office and business work
was concerned. He was prond to live
in the west, which was God's eountry,
and denied that limes were as bad as
they were painted. He cited the ous
torn returns as an instance, showing
(or Revelstoke district lor year 11107-8
returns of $131,880, as against $60,000
of the previous year. He testified to
Mr. Brown had bad considerable business in connection witb revenue work
with him  and   he   bad always found
him a thorough business like man.
(Cheers.) He hoped to see him back
soon,
W. M. Lawronco, W. Morris, J. H.
slackson, C. Holten, J. P. McLennan,
all responded suitably to the toast,
Business and Industries, saying that
Rovelstoke business was prospering in
spite of dull times, They expressed
their genuine regret at Mr. Brown's
departure and wished him all euocess.
Ho was a good business man, all
round sport, and a good lighter for
what ho wanted.
Dr. Cross, in responding to the Professions, referred to Mr. Brown as
onergelic in the prevention of cpi-
demios in Rovelstoke. He referred to
him ss a good all round man, and
alluded to his faithful work in tho
city's interests. In reviewing tho
health of the city he eaid tbat there
had been no bad infectious diseases
but that during the past year over 100
cases ot berri-berri, an Oriental disease, had been treated here, but if
properly bandied would never become
prevalent and contagious for white
peo le. He praised our pure water
which was free from all taint
H Cunningham Morris responded
suitably to the "Press," saying that
although this was a meeting of old
timers, the newcomers wore just as
responsible for tbe welfare of the city
and should be given every encouragement to come in and settle down.
Mr. Brown bad always been courteous
to him when asked lor information
about city business, for the newspapers and had done all he could to
assist the local press. He wished him
Ood speed and regretted hie departure
Capt. R. Smith in replying to the
toast of His Majesty's Forces, referred
to Cupt. Brown ss a painstaking and
capable officer and one who had done
a great deal of good to the local militia. He complained that the public
lacked interest in the militia and gave
no moral support. He wanted the
people to encourage the boys of the
corps, and resented the fsct that some
were deliberately knocking it.
Lieut. Clarence Hart reviewed his
career in the army, and expressed
regret at losing Capt. Brown from tbe
milit'a company. Berg. J. Donald
sang the popular song "Honey Boy."
Mr. Biown, as captain ol the local
militia, reviewed his 35. years' experience in military work and said that
tbe organizing of a local militia company had been hard work. He urged
that the merchants encourage their I
men to join the corps and rx hot ted
the people to take more interest in
such an important movement, which
night means so much if any enter-'
gency arose. Rifle shooting was eesen-
tial. He said that Capt. Smith would
make an efficient commanding officer,
and concluded by thanking all piesent
for their kindly expressions towards
him and wished Revelstoke every success, promising to frequently revisit
the city.   (Cheers)
The National Anthem brought a
very successful and enjoyable function
to a close.
Presentation.
A very pleasing incident look plate
on Friday night io tbe band room,
when T. Corley was presented with a
handsome solid gold watch chain and
masonic emblem by the members of
the Independent band on his departure from Revelstoke. The presentation waa made by Ed. Edwards and R.
H. Sawyer, wbo testified to tbe general
regret felt by the band at tbe loss ol
one of their most valued members.
Mr. Corley hss been associated with
the R. I. B. for many years and bas
created a large circle of friends. Mr.
Corley replied, expressing bis keen appreciation ol tbe honor extended to

HINDOO NEWSPAPER
Oriental   Literature    Reeking
With Anglophobia
Vancouver, April 8.—"The Free
Hindusthsn" is the first Hindoo newspaper to be published en this continent and the doubtful honor ol being
ita birthplace belongs to Vancouver.
Number One, Volume One, has just
been issued. It consists of lour two-
column psges, 12 by 8, and for its size
oontains rather more of venemoiis
attack on Great Britain than the
Gaelic-American of New York, a paper
which tbinkt that day lost whose
slow-descending sun sees no new
charge brought against perfidious
Albion.
Its   main   theme, of   course, is the
ordcr-in-conncil which interferes with
the (ree ingress of   Hindoos—it is no
ticeable that it Ib not charged that
the regulation in question prevents it
The remainder of the sheet is a recap
itulation   ol   the   wildest accusations
which have been brought against Brit-
ish   administration   in India and the
repeated   assertion   that   self-govern
ment would  cure   all  the ills of   the
body politic.    So long   as the circuls-
tion of tho paper iB confined to British
Columbia it iB not likely   to do much
harm, but   it  is   hardly   the kind of
thing which  will  promote  peace and'
quietness  among   a   people unaccus
tomed   to   weigh  evidence   and   sift
arguments.

hardly in accordance with our
views us to tlie duty of citizens
towards their city. We refer to
the suggestion of a man making
his pile in this district and then
leaving for Ileitis anil pastures new.
We contend that if Revelstoke is
good enough to make money in
and to live in while that money is
being made, it is then assuredly
good enough to live in after the
pile has been made, and it is certainly coming to tlie city to receive back a fair proportion of
what has been taken out. Cities
are not built in a day, and cities
such as Revelstoke must exist on
the circulation and turning over of
money and the result would certainly be disastrous if every citizen
aB Boon as a little money had been
accumulated, took up his bed and
walked. In touching on this matter, no one individual is pointed
out, but the sentiment creates the
suggestion. On the other hand
also, people who roam from place
to place when ever it gets a little
dull around home, seldom accumulate much material wealth, while
those who keep calm and stay in
one place as a rule never have to
prospect for a soup kitchen. There
are hundreds of instances in this
province of people getting rich by
staying at home and developing
the resources of their district while
their neighbors chased fortune all
over the West without ever getting
close enough to the fickle dame to
catch even a frozen smile.

THK CITIZENS'   OBLIGATION
Apropos of the social gathering
that met together on Thursday
night last to " speed the parting''
guest, there is much that can be
eaid in regard to the getting together
of the citizens of Revelstoke and
tbe great amount of good that such
gatherings will do for the community at large. It is pleasing to
see that the citizens as a whole
feel genuine regret at the loss of
Mr. Brown who has always had
tbe inteieeu of the city at heart
and who has been largely instrumental iu securing for municipal
ownership tbe several assets and
improvements in public utilities
that we enjoy to-day. While the
gathering on Thursday was in
some respects a pain at tbe lose of
a cititen, y.-t at the same- time it
enabled the business and commercial men of Revelstoke to get
together and enjoy a sociable evening as friends, an occasion when
the cases of business could be
forgotten. Citizens are far too
prone to live their own lives in
town without expanding the inter-
social ideas out of business hours.
Men would know each ether far
better and understand each other
more sincerely if they would only
take every opportunity offered to
fraternise outside of the commercial life. A quiet social evening
will do much towards creating a
more genial spirit in the city and
enable men to talk and if necessary
discuss questions that would never
otherwise arise. A harmonious
chord was struck on Thursday
night, although a sentiment was
circulated round the room which is'
THE  BOARD OK TRADE
The Board of Trade, a most useful body ie, we regret, being allowed
gradually to fade through lack of
interest on the part of its member
and those who should have public
spirit enough to see that this body
coming next to the city council in
importance, Bhould be kept up to
the mark and maintain its position
as the mouth of the commercial
public. There is no excuse for
members to be continually absent
ing themselves from its sessions,
and those who invariably are
conspicuous by their absence would
be the very first to complain if the
city aldermen did not ever turn up
to the council meeting. There is
just as much an obligation of a
member of the Board of Trade to
attend the meetings as there is to
an alderman to attend the council.
In neither case is there any financial compensation, as the work is
for the common good of the public,
and not for private benefit. The
only compensation is that which
comes from duties well performed
for the general weal and the gratitude of the more appreciative portion of the public. We admit thai
it requires a certain amount of self
sacrifice and unselfishness to attend
all the regular and special meetings
and to perform the duties assigned
to committees, but work has to lie
done and some one must do it. and
as citizens those to whom are
relegated various duties should
curry them out as an obligation to
the city. The more interest taken
in the Board the better and of
more weight will be the result. The
members are frequently face to
face with the adverse criticisms
which are invariably made of the
acts of the board, (and the city
council has its share of thia) by a
considerable number of people of
the community, who never by any
chance do anything for aDyone but
themselves and who think their
chief object in the world is to
caustically criticize those who
faithfully desire to serve the community. This is an evidence of
the tribute which ability has to
pay the envious. A marked survival of tbe childhood of our race
is brought out sharp and clear
whenever anything of moment
is before us and tho excitement of
an election for instance is the time
when we are to prone to display
premordial prejudice. We refer to
the imputation of motives of dark
design to anyone who has to do
with administration. No man can
step into the field—a field for service, without reward—but his
motives are questioned, and should
the press dare express an opinion,
they must of course be cherishing
malice and only await the chance,
to knock. In the first Initanre,
the person entering the field, [a.
probably actuated by high unselfish motives, and in tho second tin.
press in the nature of things i-
seeking only to do its duty as il
sees it with charity toward all,
with malice toward none.
OBSERVANCE OF EASTER
Discrepancy in Computing the
Date not Corrected Until 1752
The observance of Easter dates back
to about the year 08, ut which time
there was much contention among the
eastern un.l western churches as to
what day the festival should he observed. It wns finally ordained at the
council of Nice in the year 325 that it
must be observed throughout the
Christian world on the same day.
This decision settled that Easter should
be kept upon the Sunday lirst niter
the fourteenth day of tbe first Jewish
mouth, but no general conclusion was
arrived at as to the cycle by which
the festival was to be regulated, and
some churches adopted one rule and
some another. Tbis diversity of usage
waB put au end to, and the Roman
rule making Easter the first Sunday
after the fourteenth day of the calen
dar moon wa" established in England
in 66'.). After nine centuries a discrepancy in the keeping of Easter was
caused by the authorities of the English church di dining to adopt the
reformation of tbe Gregorian calendsr
iu 1582 The difference was settled
in 1762 hy the adoption of the rulo
which makes Easter day always the
first Sunday after the full moon which
appears on or next after the twenty
lirst day of March. If the lull moon
happen upon a Sunday, Easter is the
Sunday after.

Dear Sir,—Will you kindly permit
me to explain in my short humble
way how travelling nttractions are
booked in Oanada, between Winnipeg
aud Kamloops, ns there seems to be
a misconception re the selecting ai d
booking of shows. House managers
sometimes get credit nnd other times
get blamed. Now I just wish to siiy
that the whole responsibility of biok-
ing and routing travelling attractions
in Ibis territory rests with tbe secretary of the Western Canada Booking
Bureau, a man paid by the House
Managers' Association to book shows,
to ascertain what they are and to
strive to improve the Western Canadian stage. He, too, may get fooled
sometimes, and as we are not infallible
let us be slow to see faults in others.
Yours truly,
R. Tapping,

While the   police of  New York I ily
have   been   importing dogs for pair
work, the Paris   authorities  have been
training men for tracking down dogs.
A tax of $2 a year is imposed on
every dog, and the owners are supposed
to declare themselves Many of the
owners evade the tax by giving one
dollar it year to their concierge When
the fiscal authorities make Inquiries
the concierge denies the existence ol
the dogs, and the revenue ia defrauded
The authorities are now paying $30
a month to a number of men wfco can
hark. The men walk along the street*
at night, bark outside every house,
and when a dog replies take note of
the address and send round the lax
collector.
Owners of dogs are now attempting
to educate them to dodge theac dogged
dog doggers.

REDUCTION OF
HEAVY GRADE
Stupendous Undertaking in
Railroad Engineering—Cost
of C. P. R. Train Operations
to be Reduced.
The following which appeared recently in the Saturday Sunset of Vancouver will be interesting to readers iu
this district.
Few men and fewer women, perhaps,
have ever watched a passenger train
labor up the hill between Field and
Hector on the C. P. R. main line, ex
cept as passengers. Few but the
lonely men whose monotonous lives
are spent in little cabins at the, safety
switches, or the section men or others
with * railway errand or mission, have
been .pectstors of. that daily struggle
between themnn-crcsted force ofstesm
and the inert, negative mass of a
tremendous nature. Nature ninde the
Kicking llo'ie Pass n mere oleft between the niouiitains, and a steep one,
too, for the summit of the pass is 532!)
feet above sea level, while Field, a little
more than 9 miles below, is 1265 leet
lower.
Where the line rounds the base of
Mount Stephen and creeps across the
foot ol Cathedral Mountain in a distance of 4 miles, the climb is 866 feet,
or, as engineers say, a grade of 4 4 per
cent., which means that for every 100
feet travelled the line is elevated 4 4
feet.
It is indeed an impressive and weird
sight watching a train go up that
grade, at night. Long before the elec
trie headlight swings round the great
shoulder ol Mt. Stephen the lights of
four engines tl ish their silvery
streams of brilliance here aud there
over the surface of tbe mouutains opposite—silently, majestically the huge
rays sweep across the forest-clad canyon like gigantic spirits ol another
world engaged in some stately parade,
till as the train made the curve, lor
one blinding instant they swath the
spectator in a sheet of silver, then
pass swiftly up the slope of Cathedral, lighting the tracks for a full mile
ahead with almost the brilliance of
noon day.
Aod the engines—how they coughed
and panted their steel-throated, hoarse
protests to the silent, unheeding snowcapped peak). The smoke and steam
of their stacks shot straight into the
air by the forced draft of tbeir exhausts, carrying with them tons of
burning, redly-glowing cinders, fitfully lit in gold and orange as the
furnaces opened to receive and consume more coal, more coal, ever more
eoal That waa the song the engines
sang: "Coal, more coal; coal, more
coal"; that is ihe song they've sung a
score of times every day inr a, tcure uf
years. For that eong the 4.4 per cent
grade between Hector aud Field bas
levied heavy tribute upon the C. 1*. R.
That song lias U-comc so .xpensive
that tlie C. 1'. li , al'iei liguriug up tbe
Obsts, lias ,'oiiiiil il will be cheaper o
pay interest on it in lliuu and a bull
of money, than to keep ou paying tbe
pipers win- play the I.n irse accompaniment ol "Uual, more coal." Thut is
why nenily (100 men iue busy hiring
into the f.ice of the mouutains, driving
spiral Hiiiui. s, building new track;
why big Construction ramps are there;
why engineering skill ul the highest
order is directing the a: my of workmen and horses; in abort, why the
grade is being reduced from 4.4 to 2,2,
or one-hall.
But coal, though it i. the basis of
the cost of that song of the engines, is
not tbe only item of expense. Between Hector aod Field, a distance ol
eight miles, it is necessary to maintain eight engines crews and six train
crews. At the three safety switches
on tbe hill three men must be maintained and provided with houses.
These men must be on duty at all
times. Their safety switches are perpetually set against tbe main line and
an engineer must wbistle before they
are opened to a down-coming train.
Trains come down tbat grade witb nil
brakes set. At night a continuous
stream of sparks is visible from brake-
shoes and rails as tbe wheels, locked
in a grip of steel, skid along tbe tracks
with moaning screams. Little wonder those ponderous 90-lb. rails last
only two years under such a strain.
But tbat is one of tbe tributes leveled
by the 4.4 per cent, grade on the
Field Hill.
So, besides tbe waste of eoal, there
will be saved live or six engine crews,
two or three train crews and the
switohmen, all of whose wsges alone
run into many hundreds of dollars a
month—interest on a fortune—to say
nothing of the wear and tear on rolling
stock and rails.
This grade lies amid one of the
grandest bits of seeneiy in the Rookies.
Tlie line skirts along one side of a
great amphitheater ol mountains just
opposite and bolow the Yoho Valloy,
where the river of that name joins the
Kicking Horse river. On all sides
run mountains from 6,000  to  11,000
feet high. "Beauty lying in the lap
of terror" is peculiarly applicable to
this? spot, lor it in grandly beautiful
yet forbiding and iiwe inspiring in its
tremendous scale of proportions. It is
one of the show spots of tbe C. P, R.,
and rightly so. When the new line ib
finished the tourist will have ii complete panorama from every point of
view, of every feature of tins famous
scenic spot. So that together with the
novelty of the two great spiral tunnels which form  part of  the improve-
d.iy—poiier hoists and so on. The
stacks nl the poller boosts, the numerous buildings of the bunkhou.es,
cookhouses, engineering stall', e.vecu
tive offices snd Btoree, with the bustle
and constant detonations of exploding
powder, make tbe scene one of great
animation and hustie which is in
strange contrast with the primeval
wilderness aud solemn gram'eur of the
scene of operations.
In a work of thia  sort  there  is sn
organization of   units  not  dissimilar
THE  LOOP. GLACIER
Remarkable engineering feat on tbe C. P. R.
ments, the Yoho and Kicking Horse
valleys will have a fourfold interest for
the sightseer.
Coming from the Hector side, the
new line leaves the present one about
three miles west of Hector, and instead of dropping down 4.4 fe.'t in
every hundred, it drops only 2 2. The
direction of the line is thus forced to
take carries it straight into the bowels
of Cathedral Mountain. The line is
therelore turned round inside the
mountain by a spiral tunnel 3,200 leet
long. The grade in the tunnel is not
so steep as on the straight, being what
engineers term compensation, i e., it is
flattened so that it requires no more
power to pull a train around the curve
than it does on the straight. It will
be understood.that curves cause friction, so that if the grade were left the
same on the curves as on the straight,
more power would be required to haul
a train over them. Therelore in the
3200-foot tunnel the decent is only 48
feet. Coming out of the tunnel the
line is faced back toward Hector snd
it races away across the Kicking Horse
river into another mountain, where it
repeats the process and descends 45
feet in a 2890-foot tunnel. A sort of
a "waltz me around again, Willie"
proposition, or, to play oo the words
of another popular song, "be walked
right in aud he turned around and
he   walked   right   out   again."    By
Irom those of a military operation on
a similar scale. First they are the
directing officers, one staff at the head
office in Vancouver and another on
the ground. There ie the engineering
staff, the commissariat, the sappers
and miners wl.o pick, lift, haul, and
Otherwise move material; there is the
artillery staff working on the air
drills which eat hole* into the solid
rock that are afterwards charged with
shattering blasts of powder.
One of the most important of these
departments is the medical. In a
population of tiOO men, representing
al si est every European nationality,
the rules of health must te strictly
enforced if serious consequences are
not to follow. Besides the usual ills
to which flesh is heir, accidents peculiar to the work cannot be avoided
and surgical attention must be had
with all speed. Dr. R. H. Ker, a gold
medalist of McGill has charge of the
medical and health departments. In
this work Dr. Ker has had a large
experience, having bad the department on the Nicola construction and
others la a quiet spot removed to
some distance from tbe main comp,
Dr. Ker bas his infirmary and hospital equipped with appliances suitable to the peculiir needs of such
conditions. The life of a doctor in
such a situation offers little compen
sation but work, and fulfilment of the

doubled in length, there being three
lines on the new grade where there is
only one on the present one.
As an engineering feat, it is probably the greatest railway improvement work yet undertaken by the C.
P. R. Mr. R. Marpole, it is understood, was the originator and indefatigable advocate of it for several
ye rs past. As an engineering problem il looks simple on paper, but
when the layman observes the work o(
construction now in progress, it
loses none ol the marvellous with
whioh we oustomanly regard sucb

GYMNASTIC
EXHIBITION
Fine Exhibition by Revelstoke
Y. M. C. A. Athletes-A
Credit to City—Fast Basketball Game.
A large and interested crowd gathered at the Y. M. C. A. on Thursday
night to witness the gymnastic display
by the different classes, doing nightly
work in the spacious gymnasium.
When the performers tiled out they
made a very smart and neat appear
ance, being all well set up and finely
developed.
lhe Wand drill by the I u lei mediates
was particularly striking, the boys
doing neat work and demonstrating
how picturesque it ia to witness a large
number moving with precision as one
m n n.
Some line work wns shown on the
parallel burs, horizontal bars, German
horse und elephant work, not so much
from the spectators point of view, but
nevertheless being extremely trying on
the muscles and general phisical endurance. General gymnastics consisted of the performers encb doing
tbeir own special exercise on which
ever apparatus they chose. Some ol
these tricks were extremely interesting
eluded the entertainment. Thu Gym
Team vs. Shamrocks in the liinil of
the chn'leiigc series. Some swift work
waa curried out by both teams and ut
timce in the beat of the game a little
rough play was manifested. The
.Shamrocks, led at half time snd h'd
the beat of the game. In tbe second
half play was very swift, the Gym
Team d„ing their best to get in tbe
lend, and after some fast play tbey
succeeded, with the aid of a few free
throws. The Shamrocks put up a
hard light to regain their lead but
time did not permit, and when time
was culled the Gym Team, playing a
tine strong defenco game, succeeded in
carrying off the laurels. Gym Team,
13; Shamrocks, 11. Although the
Gym Team won out, it was a difficult
mutter to say which was the better
team, aB the Shamrocks put up a
magnificent game.
E, Ii. Lewis acted as referee successfully, but was too prone to allow his
decisions, which should be final and
unalterable, to be questioned and
argued. A referee should not be influenced or dictated to by any of the
players, and be has the right to call
those who do this to tusk. Players
should not tell u referen what is a foul
and what is not, lie should judge lor
himself and severely censure the complainant for interfering. Nothing
spoils a good game so quick as a few
kickers.
The whole exhibition wae the finest

and amusing, and evoked loud ap
plause from the audience. These
tricks were carried out with skill and
adroitness.
In mat work the special claes consisting of Neil Lee, A. Woodland and
Harry Turnross, performed some extremely difficult and sensational feats,
bringing both strength and skill into
plsy. Harry Turnross is a young
athlete of great promise, and judging
by his work on Thursday will, as he
grows older, be a gymnast Revelstoke
may be proud of.
Tommy Hope proved himself a
master in the art of punching a bag,
his performance being striking and
and interesting, the bag getting all
tbat was coming to it from bend,
shoulders1, elbows, hands und even ti
knee", the exhibition being coiicludid
by lhe peri inner punching one bag
with bis hands and another with his
knees, which received its due slime nf
appreciation fiom the audienee,
The gymnastic games proved very
exciting, causing endless fun for players as will as spectators.
An exhibition of Indian club swinging by the men s cl iss waa given, and
is worlby of praise for the accurate
awing nnd precision as the arms
worked in unison.
Some artistic and spectacular work
in human pyramids delighted the
spectators, the designs being graceful
and attractive

AN OPEN LETTER

Revelstoke, B. C, April 3, 1908.
Captain Robert Smith,
Militia Company,
RevelBtoke,  IJ. C.
Dear Sir,—
At tlie farewell supper tendered our
fellow citizen Mr. H. A. Blown last
night you made u«e r;f the following,
or words to tliie effect, " That the non-
success ol the Revelstoke Militia company wae due to the union men of the
town refusing to allow their members
to join the Militia, for which the
SociAliets were responsible and that
they (the Socialists) ahould be kicked
oot of town" and as you were replying
to tue toast of the King's Forces, your
remarks may also be taken to suggest the " uuilesirability " of such
oitisans.
Our present system nf   society,  Mr.
Btnitb, is haseil and founded upon   injustice and robbery,as I will prove  to
you in a very few words.     The private
ownership of   land   and    natural    resource* i* sheer robbery, for tbe  earth
tselongs to nil the people and   thi re  ia
not one single deed or agreement  that

Tbis, Mr. Boillb, is the system ol

The Rev. Tremayno Dunststo gave a
very interesting and amusing lecture
on Wednesday night at Tapping's
opera house, on Cornwall, England,
and Cornish customs, interspersed
with amusing anecdotes. His style of
lecturing is forcible and impressive,
and kept his audience Interested from
beginning to end. His sketch's of
country life and his reference to A us
triilia and bush llfn proved especially
entertaining. Mr. Willson, the popular Australian singer, gave several
songs which wore well received by the
audience.

CITY COUNCIL
The regular session of the City
Council was held last night with
Mayor Lindniirk and Aids. Foote,

Minutes of the last meeting were rend
aud id ipted.

From P. Burns A Co, requesting the
re und of the pound lines for sheep
impounded lust year, which, as they
Btuted, was wrong filly done. The
mutter was referred iu the city so
licitor.
From Mrs. J. M. Moran requesting
the council to release her for a time
from paying tho wntor rates, stating
that she had bud heavy expense in
connection with her farm.
Aid. Foote said that this wae a most
deserving case and the city could well
afford to extend thi* charity as Mrs.
Moran was destitute and alone.
Aid. Sawyer said he thought that
the city Bhould extend this consideration although it was a difficult matter to give any such consideration toany
one who owned property.
The council finally resolved to lei
the account Btand anotbor six months
longer. v
From T. F, Sinc'nir requesting that
Ilia cheque deposited with the city on
the tender for the contract be relumed. The communication stated
that the bond bad been sent in place
of the cheque. The council felt that
they were not satisfied witb the bond
in the way it stood. The matter was
finally laid over for further consideration.
From the superintendent of the
power house submitting bis report fo
the month, stating that everything
wss working satisfactorily aud said
lhat the plant had run 4d8 hours aud
30,201 k.w. hours during March. The
report was received aod tiled.
Messrs. Hagar, Hays and Tapping, a
delegation from tbe Fruit Growers'
Association waited on the Council in
connection with the Revelstoke exhibit at the Dominion Fair asking
them to see that as they had donated
funds, the Board of Trade should gi t
busy and arrange for the exhibit
before it is too late.
Tbe council promised to do -what
they could to assist.
Two signed petitions were read
showing requests for sidewalks from
St. Peter's church to Woodrow's corner on Second street, and on Fifth
street from McArthur to the east end
cf street. These petitions were laid
over until the public work estimates
were brought down.
Re "new business" an agreement
was read from the C.P.R, which stated
that the City could use the roads
crossing the track at Campbell and
McKenzie avenues, and the rosd to
the station as a right-of way, provide!
that the city pledged itself to indemnify tho railroad compsny agsinst all
claims for accidents and damage sustained by those using the roads and
crossings. This was embodied in tbe
argument which the city was requested to sign. The Council agreed that
as the people were forced to use the
C.P.R. property in order to get to the
station, it was hardly fair to make the
council responsible for any damage or
accidents thereon. There was no
other means of access to the station
and the C PR were milking a difficult proposition. The council finally
resolved that the city could n t see its
way clear to sign the agreement.
Plans for the addition to the power
huufle were discussed and a resolution
was passed calling for tenders for tlie
woik, tbo specifications stipulating
that the men must belong to the city
and married, tenders to be in by 5 p.
m., April 10th.
The accounts were pnsaed and the
meeting terminated.
