This last week haB marked a
great epoch in the history of Revelstoke, an epoch that will be re
nieniliereil and looked back upon
with pride by the present generation who in years to come will see
Revelstoke the great metropolis of
the Interior of B. C.
The First Annual Revelstoke
Fall Fair has come and gone and
all we have is lhe memory to dream
over and contemplate the benefits
that we hope to derive from a
movement of this description. Revelstoko reached the conclusion last
year or early this year that tho
time had come when the disirict,
with its agricultural possibilities,
would be benefitted by the inauguration of a Fair and from that
time no ptones were left unturned
to insure the success of this now
undertaking. Realizing the magnitude of such a work as this the
various departments were divided
up into as many committees as
could be reasonably expected to
work, and their efforts have cer-
tuioly surpassed all expectations.
From the day that the officers
were appninted-everybody began to
get down to business and the first
detailsof the Fair put in motion.
As the date of the opening day
came round, exhibits in all classes
came pouring in and the management was run off its legs in the
endeavor to accommodate the multitude of things thet came in day
by day. The first agricultural hall
was completed and fitted in ample
time to allow of the different exhibits to be placed and it was not
till then tbat one could realize
what a Fair means.
On one side were chickens cackling, dogs' barking, cocks crowing,
while loads of vegetables and fruit
kept pouringin. On the other side
the ladies were hard at work surrounded by piles of dainty fancy-
work, samples of art in all its
branches, dray loads of bread and
preserves kept arriving till the
building resembled a market place.
And yet, through it all, there could-
he seen no undue excitement, confusion or disturbance and through
systematic work the mass of variegated exhibits seemed to melt away
until the bare woodwork of the hall
became transfigured and transformed into artistic order and a
wonderful sight presented itself.
Could this aggregation of riches be
the product of Revelstoke brains,
Rovelstoke hands and Revelstoke
soil, was it possible that such a
magnificent display of fruit, vegetables and produce came from Kevelstoke land? Those who have said
that fruit, etc., will not grow here,
will now change their mind and
sing a different tune.
A stroll round the building convinced one that the people have,
up till now, been blind and totally
ignorant of what Revelstoke can do
in the way of Boil productions.
Here we see a wonderful display of
vegetables of all species, in first
class condition, some from outside
points but mostly local,while there
were temptingly displayed plates
of luscious fruits of all kinds, such
as bave not been hitherto displayed
to the public gaze. A mass of gorgeous flowers meet tbe eye and one
cannot but stop to admire the
many lovely blossoms and foliage
of plants and bouquets. Continuing on one sees the wealth of B. C.
ostentatiously displayed in the
form of mineral samples, a fine collection and worthy of highest merit.
Samples of local made Venetian
blinds adorn the west wall while
sheaves of grain and field produce
are tastefully arranged between the
panels of the structure.
Next we come to the fine art
booth wherein are arranged in lavish profusion the products of pen,
pencil and brush. Art in all its
forms is displayed and s closer inspection shows eome excellent work
—a credit to the city. Next in
order comes the home baking and
preserves, and here is where Revel-
stokes ladies come to the front.
Here could be seen samples of all
manner of delicacies of the culinery
art, a display that would tempt
any epicure and showing by the
quantities of good things tempting
ly exhibited tbat this branch, and
a very important one, was well
looked after. The fancy work section was indeed a triumph and
though tbe articles were displayed
as advantageously as possible as
far aa space would allow, there was
enough material to fill a room
three times the size.
Space will not permit of extolling the virtue* of each exhibit here
but suffice it to say that Revelstoke
in all round accomplishments car
hold her own with any city in Canada. Every inch of lhe building
wasadviiniiigeously occupied.
The il".' nnd poultry pens drew
large ami iterested crowds, some
good stock icing shown. All round
the show grounds were skill games,
and other attractions which served
to amuse certain sections of the
crowd. Particular mention must
be made of the exhibit of lumber in
the form of a .beautifully finished
model of a log cabin and a modern
lumber cottage, both the work of
the Revelstoke Saw Mill Co. This
exhibit was shown at the recent
Dominion Fair at Calgary and attracted universal attention.
ThuB, we nan go on ad infinitum
with the descriprion of the first
Revelstoke Fair, but suffice it to
say in brief that by the united
effort and the untiring energy from
the president dc iwards, the success of Revel-to**. Fairs are now
assured for future years and that
this first attempt will be a great
encouragement to work even harder
next year and every year, for (be
success of the Fair means the success of our citv.
Monday was the great opening duy
of the Fair, and from the earliest
hours streams nt judges, committee
ladies and men were wending their
way to the fair ground* to put the tin
ishing touches onto the various exhibits in the agricultural hall. Judging
took place Tuetday forenoon, which
occupied considerable time, owing to
the general excellence in all classes of
exhibits. The we.ither, which hsd
been threatening all the morning,
broke at noon aud rain fell in torrents
for an hour or two. Old Sol, however,
did his best to get into the open, and
gradually dispersed tbe rain clouds
and mists and brightened things up
by the time the horse racing commenced. A large and good humored
crowd filled the grand stand while the
track rails were lined with enthusiastic
spectators. The rain c insidcrably
mil-red the afternoon, making everything wel and unpleasant, but fortunately the showers held oil while act
ual racing was going on. Such an
aggregation of first class horses has
never been Been before in Revelstoke.
irrangementa tor the accomm lditim
and stabling of the burses bad been
admirably carried out, ten new stalls
having beeu built. Large crowds vis
ited the stables prior to the races and
admired the gracelul animals. The
track was in gi od condition, the raiu
making the surface hard and firm
though a little cuppy in places. The
first event waB a num ad trot and pace,
three entering. After a little delay
the trotters got away and put up a
pretty race, although the winner was
soon spotted:
Named race, trot and pace, 1 mile,
purse, $200—1st heat, Glcndor, King,
1st; I/.ora K, Matheson, 2ud; Little
Jap, Armstrong, 3rd    Time 2:36.
Second and third heats the order
remained unchanged, the time being
2 32 and 2:34 respectively.
Six fine animals drew up to the
starting wire for the next race. The
starting machine operated by Mr. W,
Falahee of Calgary and whioh has
been used throughout the many race
meets in Western Canada, was used
here for the first time on Tuesday.
The machine is an Australian patent
and gavo a perfeot start in every case.

The running half mile heats for
local horses caused considerable enthusiasm and excitement, although
from a spectator's point of view the
race lacked true fight. Little can be
said except tbat Fly ran well and
Spider could have done better. Buckskin ran a good race hut was not in a
condition to really run a hard race.

Tbo last race on Tuesday was tho

and a pretty race.   The entries were
considerably reduced by several horses
being scratched and only three went
under the wire.

The racing wai carried through without a hitch and tho committee hau-
dled all arrangements with perfection.
Rain fell unceasingly on Wednesday and the Fair Committee decided
to make a p istponemont of the second
day of the Fair until Thursday.
Thursday morning broke cloudy but
towards noon the olnuds dispersed and
the afternoon turned out gloriously
line. A large crowd of people attended on the grounds and all were enthusiastic over the prospects of a good
afternoon's amusement. The agricul
tural hall and other buildings were
full of sightseers while many wandered along to tbo stables to admire
the horses. The scene was lively and
gay, an air of holiday making pervading the entire throng. Judging for
live stock, etc., took place at 1.30 and
caused considerable interest, and at
the close of thia a general parade of
all live stock prize winners and thoroughbred horses took place on the
track before the grind stand and a
fine exhibition of first class animals
was Been. Racing commenced immediately afterwards:

Considerable satist.iotion is felt over
the success ot the races, and burse
owners as well as spectators hail no
complaints to make. Some of tha
best horses in Canada wero competing
and some excellent racing was witnessed. The olhcials ot the truck
were: Judge, A. J. MeDonell; Starter,
W. Falahee; Chairman, A McRae;
Secy , H. Cunningham Morris; Timer,
J. Guy Bather.
The hurt-emeu all speak in high
terms ot praise of their treatment in
Revelstoko and declare the meet here
as good as any iu the Dominion. The
track was in splendid condition, firm
and solid and tbe racing from a spectators point ot view was all that could
be desired.

Prize List.
The exhibits of fruit demonstrated
that locally great interest has been
taken in orcharding. The Summerland
Fall varieties gave evidence of keen
competition in the number of exhibits
in these sorts. But only in about six
instances did this competition seem
apparent in the wintor sorts.
Mr. I.awes, of Enderby, displayed a
magnificent collection of pears. Quite
a showing of tho different varieties ot
crabs and plums, well colored, attracted atldlil o i.
Mr. Bell's box ot apples was n
praiseworthy exhibit of what interest
and care will produce, deserving woll
the place in competition.
The display of Iruit from thiijChilli-
wsck valley, winning tbo Fruit Exchange Cup, won much attention lor
the method of packing is seldom seen
in a commercial pack. Fruit from
this Association won a deserved demand last season for their pack.
Geo. R. Lawes, of Enderby, is another competitor winning a cup
offered by the Fruit Echange for the
best exhibit of teu varieties of apples,

the people will now have am- le
time liefore next year rolls round,
to read, mark, learn, inwardly digest ami draw conclusions from the
lesson-1 thai this great undertaking
na- taught us. Thai the Fair was
■luccef-ful caunot he gainsaid '.n
spite oi the inclement wi-iitlKr.
The maguitudi of an event such as
thi-. nnd the direct influence thnt
the Fair will nave on Revelstoke,
can Ins easily seen, and its effects
will Lie far reaching. This, the lirst
fair, uiark_ an epoch in the history
oi Revelstoke and 1- a turning
point, or rather Bhould be in the
commercial and industrial career
■ if the city. In the last few years
Revelstoke has only realized that
she is a city of gr--al and huiind-
.e.-s- possibilities in tha commercial
world and that her people are not
dependent entirely on llie railroad
and it.- accompanying issues, We
have wallowed along ni the groove
far enough. said tbe time ha.- conn
when the old order of things must
change anil tho old givi place to
the new The First Fair has, suh-
ttaiitially and unquestionably demonstrated whsil Revelstoke can do
along agricultural lines and show
us where wc have allowed opportunities lo slip b) while we bave
liven asleep and putting unboundod
faith in our suite.-.- ai a railroad
city. Hevelstoke does not for one
minute say ot boast lhat she cam
do without a railroad for that
would be bravado, sic., acknowledges l''e powei and value ol thai
great transportation company, snd
prides herself on being one of 1 lu-
chief ci tie.- on tbs main transoon*
linental highway ami a junction
and entrepot for the Interior. Ijie
C.l'-li. lias made our city in 11
sense, but  there is  no reason why
we should consequently shut our
eyes to other possibilities every bit
as profitable, and pin our faith
blindly to what has gone before.
llevelsloke must progress, aud new
innovations mean progression. The
fair and its successful issue shows
that the better feelings nf our people have come to tin-surface and
thai they now all realize that ns a
commercial, industrial and agricultural district Revelstoke's new era
has dawned. The exhibits in all
classes at the Fair were true sain
pies of what can he produced here
and no better encouragement can
be given lo our people to sli 11 fur
ther excel and persist in the (level
opmenl of our resources woich will
give ample reward for our pains
It is gratifying to sec that our
people as a whole have evinced
keen interest in this Fair and al
though there were many details
that could have been perfected to
advantage, still every allowance
must be made for mistakes, over
■sights :ind other deficiencies lhat
must of necessity arise in a first
al tempi at a scheme of such mag
nitude, Our experienced gained
this year will stand us in gooi
stead next year, and (lie success of
the first Fair will give every encouragement to still more effort for
1909, to make Revelstoke a central
commercial point No better advertisement can he had than an
annual Fair and if the same interest, enthusiasm and untiring effort
on the part of all as was evinced
ibis year, is to be seen next, year
there can be no doubt as to the ultimate excellence and success of
our Agri :ull_ral Society. Nothing
succeeds like success and now that
we have started lhe ball rolling il
is up to each and all of us to put
onr shoulder behind it and by united effort keep it going. Co-operation in tliis scheme will ensure its
ultimate success and it will be our
pleasure as well as nnr duty to do
our share and work in harmony 111
order tn put the Fair on a secure
and sound basis. We cannot hut

of their own) it is u nice problem for
t' e judges to work out uud something
which the crdinivy observer cannot
Bee. There was n rt a great deal ot
material to do anything with, hut for
the first year we consider it most
creditable throughout, for while the
Fair had been talked _f Ior some time,
it really was put on very suddenly at
the last and no one seemed to have
time to get anything ready alter the
prize lists ivure printed. We trust all
this will be arranged earlier another
year so as to give intending competitors ii chance to prepare something
up in.late and worthy of exhibit.
Special mention must be made of the
I _t:i and ink sketch sent in by A. 0.
Waiuw rigbt, alBO work by R. R. Cope-
land. There was feminine merit in
their work and thia is the class that
will bring the Fine Arte up to a
higher standard. There is material
in RevelBtoke for a first-chise competition and we trust everyone will do
tlieir best in their own class, (whether
it be original or copy in either oil*,
water color, pencil, crayon, or pen nud
ink) for tho exhibition nf 1909; Do not
leave it oil until the last neck or two
—get to work now, Kevclstiike need
not take a pl.ee second In i.ono in

The committed wish lu thai k everyone who either loaned pictines or
entered their work tor compeli'iou or
in any way In I pel tu make it the
success it undoubtedly was.
The judges deserve great praise f. r
tlieir services. They had no knowledge of Ilic i.v'il'its and simply
