Tho first question Introduced was
that of n now courthouse for this city.
After discussion it wns moved by Mr.
Howson, and seconded by Mr. 11. McSorley, that in tho opinion of this
mooting a new courl house is needed
in Kevelstoke, which in size and appointments should be second i" none
iu the interior of tho province, and
that tho member for tbis district, the
Minister of Public Works, be asked to
u.-e his influence to have thi- request
acceded to .
XX. Poole next brought up the question of n Lund Registry Ollice, point -
ini_; out the necessity oi one for Revelstoke. After discussion it was moved
by Mr. Foote. seconded by Mr. H.
McKinnon, lhat "The Minister's attention should be drawn to the pressing
need of a Land Registry Ollice for this
district, to be situated at Revelstoke,'
H. McKinnon directed attention to
the need of i county gaol at Revel -
stoke, und moved, seconded by Mr.
Foole, ihat the member for this district be asked to lake up the matter
with the nttorney-goneral nnd point
"Ut to him the advisability of subdividing or redividing the districts in
Kootonay, iu order to establish tho
headquarters of one county at R?vel-
stoke, and the necessity of meeting a
gaol at ilevolctoke for the accomodation of prisoners.
Supplementing the discussion with
the previous resolution Mr. Kilpatrick
directed attention to the fact that tho
Northern portion of the Kootenays
was without a resident nidge, three
being stationed in the south, two of
lhom at Nelson, and pointed out th»»
advantage that would accrue culd
one be located in Revelstoke for the
Northern portion.
It was then moved by  F. Young aud
seconded   by   S,   Sutherland,   lhal   at -
tention of  the Departmenl  of Justice
be directed through our representative
ii  the  fact   lhat  the  norihern portion
( the  Kootenays is entirely without a
Qsident   judgo,   whereas   three   are stationed south,  and  that  it  would be In
the interests ol justice, and    of  groat
convenience to all concerned   to   havo
n judge stationed at   Revolstoko,    tho
centre of tin- northern portion.
Mr. Manning brought up the question ut the po-sibility of the school ac
commodation being increased this year
and (Hated that although tin- govern -
ment had offered generous assistance
last year, the trustees hud been unable to avail themselves of it, und asked the Minister of Public Works to
do his best to have the priinl re -
awarded this year il" possible in case
ii  should be needed.
A. Stone then drew attention to the
encroachment of the Columbia river
above the railway bridge, and moved,
seconded by Mr. McSorley thai tho
Hon. Minister of Public Works be ro-
quested to do hi- best to arrange this
winter for the mattrassing necessary
iu this locality lo prevent the further
encroachment upon valuable lands by
the action of the river, and (under
that a copy of this resolution be sent
I., the Dominion Government with a
request to take action thereon.
Mr. Uannlng drew ai iei,unu tn the
advisability of getting the farming
districts -outh, towards Arrowhead,
and west n. Malakwa, opened up bv
new roarls.
In regard t.. th.- lormoi Messrs. Kilpatrick, McSorley and others pointed
out that it was not reasonable or advisable io incur any expense at tho
present time, aud spoke upon the advisability of •oniinini/ ilw oxpendlturo
to quarter- where it wns actually war-
runted at present.
It wn- finally moved und carried,
' 'hut the member for the distriel bo
u-ked lo have the trunk road running
south extended, and branch road-
b'lilt from it. lo open up the farm
lands, ami expedite settlement, as fast
.t- conditions would allow

but,  th.' city would  not  ,-u far do the
ask the tiovoiiiniiiii
to appropriate by special warrant the
sum of S-JStHJ to 83000 in order to
provide for the erection of a bridge
this winter, in order that communication with the north might be maintained. Mr. Youtlg moved, nnd
Hull  seconded  this  motion.
All  motions put before the  n
were curried unanimously,

Mr. Taylor being culled upou, stated
he hud listened with much interest lo
ihe different proposals, and with all
tbul would be for thu upbuilding and
benefit of Revelstoke Hiding he was in
hearty sympathy, and his i-o-oporation
could  always  be  relied  upon.

by the Revolstoko Amateur Dramatic
Club, Many and varied have been the
plays produced by our local Thespians
but few hnve lieen as difficult lo curry

pronounced one of the hardest plays
written, for actors generally to Iill.
Although the Aniiiteiirs could not bu

Mime style as those who played in
London lor 1.1UU nights, yet the severest critic would huve no particular
fault lo find with lhe piece as a whole

To the Editor,
Sir,—Is it lo be taken seriously that
one man and one or two others met
on Monday night last al the Club and
with their usual open handed honesl
motives kindly selected for the citizens
of Revelstoke a full fledged mayor and
council?   ll,    is  so    whispered  around,
laud that the occupations of the new
city daddies to be as follows;—A doctor, druggist, coal vender, hotel proprietor,  billiard   hall  proprietor,  gov-
jcrnmeut foreman uud u telephone pro-
' prietor.
j Pills are always much more tempt -
ing when sugar coated, and the colored bitter contents hidden from view
und protected from taste in the swallowing, but nevertheless with the drug
constituents present. Later, however,
when once lodged iu the pit of the
stomach and the pleasant and unoffending coverings are absorbed, geiping
pains sel in, followed by varying eon-
sequences well known to everyone.
Such is the appearance, und us assuredly ivdl be the results, to Revelstoke's
cily system, if we accept in a gulp
this municipal concoctiou compounded
-o carefully in a hole and corner tig
Revelstoke bus not yet rouovured
from physic administered to ii by
similar prescribe! 's. lhe high taxes
we liru now called upon lo pay are
largely incidental to contracts and
purchases negotiated loug since by
some behind  tbe prosonl   scheme.
I am doubtiid if Hevelstoke will accept the dose ready made in advance
withoul its citizens being even present nt  tin- diagnosis.
Honest   intentions  need   not   be   hal
cited in  the dark of otic uight.
To the Editor,
Sir,—Please permit  iue  to     eorroot
the misleading statement lhat nppuur
ed in last Saturday's paper, when it
slated that I would run for mayor. I
now wish to say thut several of our
citizens have asked me, und I have
not yet consented lo accept uomitiii -
lion. As for my movements iu lhe
.oming civic contest I have not yet
decided upon then, and have not informed anyone. I consider il a \ ,>r\
ninieiit  were prepared Important mutter and worth)   of our
arnest   consideration.
'tho volt* of il young imiu  was   a   new
' deportiire.
In <_*. \V. Gordon in tho dual role of
Kt'inpstiT and Poddlesj servant and
butler, no fault could bo found.
.Mrs. I). Melntyro, aa Violet MelroBO,
tin? hcireMs, looked particularly charming and winsome, this being Inu- lirst
appearance beforo a Kevelstoke audience, tn her acting no fault could lie
found, and if she goes on in the same
manner as this, her debut, her success
is assured. The Club arc fortunate iu
securing her services.
Miss White, as Mary Melroso, the
poor cousin, with her customary vivacious and excellent acting has scored
another success, being possessed of
rare talent, Miss White is quite at
home on lhe stage, and on Monday
played her part with delightful vigor
and dnintyness, her appearance being
particularly   pleasing.
Mrs. \i. M. Rae, as Clarissa Champ-
neySj had mastered a most dillicult
part, the very knowledge that site was
perfectly at home in iier work, enabling Iter to pay careful attention to
hor acting, which left nothing to be
Mrs. \V- A. Sturdy, as ileliudu, the
slavey, acted a star part, her portrayal of tlio life in a dingy London lodging house being true to liiu. Mrs.
Sturdy in whatever part she appears,
studies it carefully, und puts iuto it
all there should be.
It. H. L'opulund as usual looked at -
ter tho staging and general production

so much of its present popularity and
high standard of SUCUOSS.

and had it not been for iho excellent
and ever ready playing of iliss A'lini-
ees Lawson on lhe piano, which was
much appreciated by all, these deadly

tedious. I'he fault should if possible,
be remedied  in  future.

performance was kept up for several

will look forward to their next production.

Scotch   Whisky
Choose Your Brand Carefully.
A Scotch address on the label does not
always mean genuine Scotch Whisky in the
bottle. I here are many brands trading on the
reputation of Scotland s Highlands as a whisky
producing country beyond compare— brands put
up under fictitious names, and wbicli, though
bearing Scotch addresses, never saw Scotland
at all, much Jess the Highlands.
Choose as t/our beverage, a brand with a
reputation back of it.
Watson s Scotch Whtsk-y has been distilled
in tbe Highlands of Scotland since the year
1.815. It is not only a pure, and genuine
Scotch : it ti- a Whisky exceedingly agreeable
lo the palate. Ibis is due primarily to the
fact that wo distil by the old-fashioned Pot
Still method-    slowly, carefully, skilfully-
Moreover, w'e age our Whisky in Sherry
wood ago it for years, until it is thoroughly
matured and mellow to the taste.

Committee Rooms-Selkirk Hall—Open Dally
To the Electorate of Revelstoke
A very large number ol the representative citizens of Revelstoke having requested mc to become a
candidate lor the position of Mayor of Revelstoke, I consented upon the understanding that gentlemen in whom
lhe electors would also have confidence would undertake
to run as Aldermanic candidates, in order to ensure the
election of a Council competent to deal with the serious
situation confronting the City of Revelsloke.
Briefly the object of myself and associates, if
elected, will be :—
lo face the financial situation by obtaining a
complete grasp of the City's finances, and take the citizens
into our confidence by issuing an absolutely correct and
plain statement so that the position will be clear to all,
and then take the necessary steps to restore the credit of
the city.
By the practice of the strictest economy endeavor
to reduce a rate of taxation which is not only becoming a
menace to our own citizen.-, but, which because of ils
most unfavorable comparison with the rale prevailing in
other cities where the assessment is no higher, and where
water, light, and power are al.-o municipally owned, and
other advantages of sewerage, cement sidewalks, etc,
prevail, as in Revelstoke, is at the present time prohibiting the investment of outside capital, despite the fact that
Revelstoke has natural advantages far in excess of those
of other cities. A fairer method of valuation is also a
To give a good, clean, progressive administration which shall command respect throughout the city,
and by restoring confidence on the outside, lay the foundation for that development and prosperity which this'city
has the right to enjoy.
Finally, 1 would add that having been promised
the co-operation of lhe best and most practical men in this
city whose one object is the welfare of Revelstoke regardless of every other consideration, you mav he assured
that the council you are asked to elect are prepared to
give you the administration which the crisis we have
reached demands, and on thai ground the support of
their fellow citizens is solicited.
Faithfully yours,

Mr. Lindmark brought up tho matter of oncroaohmont of tbo Columbia
river at Wing Chung's place north of
the C. P. 1*. bridge, and it was resolved, ou motion of Mr. Lindmark, seconded by Mr. Allen, Tliat tho Hoard
communicate with tho provincial Gov-
vernment pointing out the damage
done last summer and the necessity of
steps being taken to protect the river
bank against further encrouchmont before the road is  washed away.
Hon. T. Taylor, Minister of Public
Works, then waited on tbe Hoard, accompanied by  K. Gordon, Government
'Agent, to discuss with them the public requirements of the distiict; and
the mutters of road from head of navigation to Goldstream in Big Bond, tho
Greely Creek  road, a  now  court house

'stoke, nud protection of river bank
north of C. P. H. bridge, were dis -
cussed with him.
Hon. Mr. Taylor suid he had not
received advice ol this matter till it
was too late to send an engineer over
the ground to report on the cost.
Mr. .Sibbuld said a good deal of the
work could be done for $1000 a mile.
Mr. Taylor said the distauce was 1^
miles. That meant $18,000, and if it
would cost, us some estimated, 9*2000
u mile that was a very lurge sum to
ask the Government for in connection
with Other works, mid thoy could not

up to the mine owners and holders of
timber licenses in   the  Hig  Bond  to put
up u considerable amount of the cost
of  thut   work,      as   they   would  derive
the benelit  from   il.    it   wus   n      que-.
lion whether il was not  belter to have
