FATAL ACCIDENT
Big Eddy Mill Man Killed by
Train.
The dense fog this morning wss
responsible for a fatal accident which
occurred shortly after six o'clock, a
little west of the C P. R. bridge. It
appears that R Brill, wbo is employed
at the Big Eddy mill, was on his way
to work at the mill and had crossed
the bridge. Brill was very hard of
bearing and was evidently unconscious
of the danger which threatened him
as an eastbound freight loomed up
ahead of bim. He was struck with
terrific force on the head by tbe engine
bis face and skull being smashed, be
sides minor injuries," and the train, all
unknowing ul the destruction it had
caused, passed on. Ddath must have
been instantaneous. Tbe body was
found later by some men, on the south
side ol the track and was immediately
conveyed to Howson's undertaking
parlors pending an inquest. The
deceased is well known in Revelstoke
and has been employed at tbe Big
Eddy mill for about five years. He
bas two brothers in the city.
The provincial constable Iisb taken
charge of the case, and sn inquest will
be held this evening at 8 o'clock,
The funeral will take place on Monday.
POPULAR CITIZEN
Banquet to Sam Sutherland at
Ferguson
One of those functions which does
not oome to every mao in his life time,
wns given to one of our respected citizens on the evening of Oct. 3rd at the
Balmoral Hotel, Ferguson. ' The occasion was the expression of our. esteem
in the form of a banquet for our old
time citizen and merchant, Mr. Samuel Sutherland, before bis departure
from our midst. Mr. Sutherland, in
company with Mr. Msckinnon of Revelstoke, have carried on a mercantile
business in this district for tbe last
eleven years, and during that time
have not only won for*tbemeelves the
reputation of being thoroughly up-to-
date and reliable, but also tbe confidence of the citizens, which is a very
important element in the success < f
any busiuess. We as citizens and
friends are only sorry to hear of his
departure, but we hope that our loss
will he some other body's gain, and
that wherever he should locate be will
win the esteem and confidence ol tbe
people  as   he   bas   done in tbe past.
Mr. Sutherland's successor is Mr.
Ware of Beaton, and we hope that lie
will enjoy the same confidence and
success as bis predecessor. We, as
friends ask Mr. Sutherland, wherever
he might be, to ever retain a warm
spot for his old associations, and that
"Time will but tbe impression stronger
make as streams tbeir channels deeper
wear.'
Before saying farewell, just one word
of advice and that is: That his sight
might no longer be obscured by the
clouds of bachelordom, but that be
will forthwith take unto himself a
helpmeet to assist bim in bis labors
on the b. lance of bis journey through
life and we are sure tbat fortune and
happiness will ever be his.

London, Oot. 9—Labor delegates

Whitley A Company today are considering the proposals of the employers
to permit the workmen to buy tbe
plant or enter a profit sharing agreement with tbe fir.ii, provided friction
between the meu and company is

Christopher Furness, head of the fi: m,
during a meeting witb the labor representatives at West Hartlepool.
Furness told tbe. delegates tbat
strikes must be stopped or tbe works
wou'd be compelled to sbut down. He
suggested tbst if trades unions thought
Ibey eould carry on the business themselves, the firm would sell to tbem at a
price set by impartial assessors. His
proposition was tbst if tbe unions
would not buy ths plant, tbe firm
would admit tbem to a profit sharing
basis, providing a council be formed to
ssttle disputes by referriug them to
arbitrators.

NO AGREEMENT  REACHED
Mountain Millmen Say That 90
Per Cent. Will Not Operate
Vanociivbk, Oot. 9 —Ths coast
mountain lumbermen at a conference
held yesterday afternoon in Vancou
ver, failed to come to the arrangement
for tbe re-establishment of a price
agreem-nt for the northwest market.
The subject wss discussed in its many
phases, but the coast men decided
tbat in order to permit some of the
large Vancouver mills to work off
their surplus ot rough lumber it would
be impossible lor au agreement to be
concluded with tbe mountain mills at
this time. It was stated during tbe
conference that though the capacity of
tbe mountain mills, workiog ten
hours per day during eight months is
660,000,000 feet of lumber, the output
last HCason was but 260,000,000, and
thst was the best year in the history
of that trade. At present tbe mountain mills sre refraining from attempting to sell tlieir product because the
low price quoted by ooast mills on
rough lumber bas taken the market
away.
Tbe representatives of the mountain
mills stated that it was probable thst
90 per cent, of Hie establishments and
plants in the district would be closed
down dining the winter. The owmrs
took the view* thut Ihe stocks already
on hand would fully meet even tbe
good demand whii h was expected next
spring, and there were no use in
fiirthrr increasing their supplies, it
was intimated that a similar line of
action on the part of the coast mills
would lie advisable for the general
good of ilic busiue-s, but no definite
nquest for such action was preferred. *>
NEW RAILROAD RULES
Railway    Commission   Draft
Regulations!
Ottawa, Oct. 9—Tbe regular mem-
hers ol the I oard of railway commissioners, with Judge Mabee as president
sat tbis morning on tbe monthly
session of tne board. None of the
recently appointed enmmissioners
took any part iu the proceedings. The
first matter which came up was the
resumption of the consideration was
tbe ie.uiiipt.ion of ths proposed new
rules for trainmen and the regulation
as to the equipment of trains.
Railway men from all parts of
Canada were on hand to discuss the
suggestions :d the board, which,
among other things suggested that all
freight cars to be built after December shall be equipped with an operating lever on both sides. The board
mokes some proposals in respect to
the equipment of locomotives and
tenders with lights both in tbe front
and the rear, and another suggestion
is that no light tiain on the main line
shall run more than 25 miles an hour
in one direct inn with.nl a conductor.
Other proposals made by the commission arc that all emplnyees on
trains undergo the color test, that a
train consisting of more than eight
cars be provided witb two brakemen,
tbat railway telegraphers be compelled
to pass an examination, and that tbe
putting of crippled cars behind the
vans ol a freight train be punisbsble
by a fine of fifty dollars.
It is understood that with four
minor changes ths railway men will
agneto tbs new rules.

BEAUTIFUL REVELSTOKE
Citizens   must Co-operate  to
Make City Attractive
Perhaps this is not a very opportune
time to indulge in a scasonnble word
about the sppearsnee of llevelsloke
streets, fur our thoroughfares may be
truthfully described as in a state of
evolution New cement sidewalks are
being laid which necessitates a ceitain
amount of confusion and untidiness
while the early stages of boulevarding
give sn air of "upheaval" to the city
as well as an appearance of disorder
which must of necessity take place
while improvements are under way.
Thin' under these circumstances it is
inevitable that our thoroughfares
should present an aspect of bedrsggle-
ment and dishevelment, In course of
time these works will lie completed to
the ultimate beautifying of the city
To quote Irom a contemporary: 'Cun
you not picture to yourself a city
where every unsightly spot has been
transformed into beauty? Can yuu
not sre a city where every street has
its rows of stately trees and every
house iis gttr.h'n plot and flowering
shrubs, and every will its mantle 1 f
creeping green? Cm you not think
of a city where every hateful billb.iard
and every tumble down sbsck have
disappeared " This is tbe work of
good citizenship and a condition of
things for Kevelstoke to emulate. It
would lake very little to make Revel
stoke beautiful. Koine of our people
might hold back fiom doing ih ir
share, in.der the iih-u th it the condition of the street aud -iilowalk in Iront
of tlieir premises ib none of their
special business, but everyone, we
think, would fall iu line, if 1 nly lor
shames sake, after a little, and pre-
83iilly we would hnve a city neat and
clean.
As we havo said, it is possibly not
the right lime now to begin setting
our streets in order by having all
grasses and bushes cut down and vege
tation of all species removed from our
public places. It is to be hoped that
the incoming Cuum-il will follow along
the line of the present administration
and enter upon Ihe coining term fixed
in tbeir determination to have the
streets and roads repaired and cleared
and made as pleasant ss possible to
the eyes of residents and visitors slike.
A reform can be brought about in
many ways, even to seeking power
from the legislature making house
holders responsible for the condition
of streets In front of their premises. If
we make Revelstoke a clean, beautiful
city, it will do us all a lot of good.
One of the first results would be that
we would all become more public
spirited, a virtue which Bhould be more
prevalent in RevelBtoke. A great
many of us are too self csutred and
concern ourselves too much wilh our
own affairs and ends, and too little
aliout those things that promote the
general welfare ol the community.
We need something to unite us all as
citizens in the furtherance of B me
common object and if we take pains to
each of us do our share in making
Reveletoke a beautiful cily our sphere
of intl cure and cooperation will
visibly increase.
PERFECT TIMBER TITLES
Kootenay   Millmen   Ask  Perpetual Title for Bonuses
Vancouvek, Oct. 9.—A deputation
of Kootenay lumbermen waited on
the Provincial government tbis week
and asked for legislation to extend the
special timber licenses until such
period as the timber areas thus b. Id
shall bave been logged off.
Its members comprised Messrs.
Lund, Lacbmund, Otis Staples, Lind*
mark and John Hanbury.
The visitors also urged the govern*
ment to amend the Bush Fires Act eo
as to make it unlawful for settlers to
set out fires during June, July, August and September. Hon. Messrs.
McBride and Fulton promised consideration owing to the dangers of
flames spreading to timber limits.
Tbe main requests of the lumbermen are embodied in a memorial
presented to the government last
February. It ii argU'd that tbere is
great insecurity of title st present, as
the licensee only run for twenty-one
years.
" I am in hearty sympathy with the
views of the deputation wbicb asked
tbe government to adopt a policy that
will provide perpetuity of title in
regard to timber licenses," said Mr.
W. C. Wells, ol Nelson, ex-commissioner of lands aod works.
" The mistake was made in closing
other avenues for acquiring timber,
and io intro mciiig the special license
system only without any restriction
•s to area. In the former administrations of which I was a member, two
systems were in force. One was
peculiarly adapted for the larger
pr, prietor, and tbe other fur small
holders wbo had the right to acquire
only up to t_o square miles. The
leasing system, however, was done
away with, snd tbe door thrown open
by giving the right to acquire  unlim
ited uir.i« uuder spools! licenses, and
this in fact was the only way left,
" facilities fur acquiring timber
wero thereby i-iiliaiH.il. This being
the case timber holders who were led
to apply for large areas for support of
their plants for the purpose of safeguarding their timber reserve, should
certainly havo some protection in the
direction of perpetuity of title nnd if
there is anything in conllict with
public interests it is certainly the
polioy of the government that is at
fault and not the timberholders,
" The great objection to protection
is tbat it applies to speculators as well
as to tbe bona fide operators, and if
some discrimination could be made 10
protect tbe public interests in dealing
with these two classes of timber-
holders there is ample justification for
it."

City of Hevelstoke nn October 2f 28 2',).
The principal speaker will be Mr.
W.C. Pciirce, International Superintendent of the Adult Department. Mr
I'eurce is a very interesting mid practical speaker He is the leader of the
Adult Ilepui intent, the greatest movement of the Twentieth Century in
Sunday school work. It is practically
through bit efforts that this department has hei'oniii so ptominont during
the past few years. Thousands of men
through the work of the dep rtmont
have boen gathered into tbr Sunday
schools iu all parts of the North American continent. At the recent International Convention held at Louisville,
Ky. under Mr, Pearoe's leadership
1200 business men belonging to the
adult classes marched through the
streets ol that oity, and demonstrated
to the public that the Sunday school
is no longer to be regarded as simply
for little children, but that it is fur
men also, and men of thu highest
caliber. The Sunday school workers
of the province should make a special
effort to boar Mr. I'eaice.
This promises to be the greatest
religious gathering ever held in the
province Tho general theme ia " The
Twentieth Century Sunday school organized for effectual work." The
different phases of the organization
and work ot the up-to-date Sunday
school will be discussed. Tho Sunday
school should be the right arm of the
church in all lines of Chris.ian effort,
hence this convention will endeavor tu
show hit the Twentieth Century
Sunday school should do in training
workers in soul winning, in character
building, iu in inl reform, in reaching
the homes, in reselling the neglected
masses, and many other live questions.
Kach school cun send th" pastor ai d
superintendent, uml one additional
delegate for each fifty of the enrollment oi fraction thereof. The Pm-
vluoial Board hopes ihul all schools
will send full delegations.
