RedistriL Commission Holds Session in Court House
InolUv 7 Territory as Far as Sicamous Sug
gested .ban Constituency Proposed—Judge
Congratulates Revelstoke on Magnificent Court
Mail Herald Bulletins
Are Highly Appreciated
Mr. Justice Macdonald and Mr.
Justice Morrison, the commission appointed to eiH|iuri' into tbe best method ol subdividing the province into electoral districts and of defining
their boundaries held a session in the
u»urt house .ui Saturday evening.
W.P. Ogilvie, secretary ot the commission, was also present. The advisability of extending the boundur -
ies of the     Revelstoke   constituency
westward as far as Sicamous so us
to take in Three Valley and Craigel -
lachie  was discussed.
Mr. Justice Macdonald In opening
the proceedings said thut the commission wished tor expressions ofiop-
iuion as to whether constituencies
were represented to their full capacity, whether tbey should bo added to
or whether part of their territory
should be taken ofl or whether their
boundaries should be better described. He asked G.S. Met'alter for an
expression of his views In this re -
gurd concerning Revelstoke constituency.
Mr. McCarter said that Ue thought
that there was little to complain of
in Revelstoke and that the constituency met with general satisfaction.
Revelstoke was In close touch with
Three Valley, Craigellachie and the
territory as far as SicamOUB and he
thought that this district might witb
advantage be included In the Kevelstoke constituency, lf this were done
he thought that it might result in a
change in the judicial districts, and
it would be more convenient for the
people of the district mentioned to
come to Revelstoke instead Ol Kamloops.
Mr. Justice Morrison suggested
that it might also be more conveni -
ent in obtaining  magistrates.
Mr. McCarter, continuing, said thut
there was a strong desire to secure
connection with the okanagan by
highway and that the need of tho
highway had been impressed upon the
government. One difficulty encountered was that it had been found necessary to present the petition to
three members ol the legislature. Two
had been favorable and one bad been
disinclined to aid the project. If only
one member were involved tbe appropriation would be more readily
■secured. From Clanwilliam to Sicamous settlers had recently gone in in
numbers and tbey would tind Revel-
■stoke 11 more convenient county seat
than  Kamloops.
In case of extending the boundaries
ol the constituency south along the
Arrow lakes Mr, Justice Macdonald
pointed out that it. might be neces -
sary to make the extension along
both side's 01 the lake to avoid separating those with a communitj of
interest. He asked Mr, McCarter
Whether,   if a  constituency   were  given
two members, be lavored two members at large or two members each
representing a section ol the constituency.
Mr. McCarter said that in case of a
urban lonstltuencj be favored two
members  at   large,   but   in  ease  of    a
rural constituency he thought that a
division of the constituency would be
thc better plan.
The chairman then called upon A.
Mcltne for an expression of bis views.
Mr. McRae said that he agreed with
all that had been said about the
community of interest between Revelstoke and the territory to Sicamous
but that he thought If the conBtitu-
mcy were extended it should be given
increased representation. He thought
that the city of Kevelstoke with its
suburbs was entitled to a member.
Rossland had a member and Rossland
(lid unt compare with Kevelstoke in
population. Revelstoke hoped tor n
large population to the north and the
territory to the south was settling
Justice Macdonald said that he did
not think that Revelstoke presented
nny complication. Nature bud set its
boundaries. The only quostion wus
the territory to the west. He wanted it known thai the i|iirsllnn was
not closed and that the commission
was prepared to receive any representations for the next  two months.
Mr. McCarter mini that It should be
remembered thai the railway lands in
the Revelstoke district had only recently been thrown open to settlement. He saw from the Mail-Herald
o.' that day that ISOU more acres
were being thrown open, The rural
population would rapidly Increase in
the district.
Mr. Justice Morrison agreed that
provision should be made for thu
probability of an Influx of settlers to
the district.
The chairman, Mr. Justice .Macdonald, then declared the session closed.
Among those who were present were
Mr. McCarter, Mr. McRae N.R. Brown
nnd H. Gordon.
The commission      left on Saturday
evening  for  Golden  from  where  they
travelled  to     Cranbrook     down  the
Windermere     valley.   A session    was
I.eld at Cranbrook on Monday and ut

mission      sits at  Nelson.   Tomorrow

evening.   The Simllkameen will    next

later up the Fraser valley. The Caribou lias already been visited    and    a
session      was  held  at  Kamloops  ou
The two judges were much impressed with the Revelstoke court house,
and before commencing the session
.Mr. Justice Morrison, who hud ob-
served attentively the lighting and
other features of the court room,
congratulated the people of Revelltoke on possessing ime of the finest
court bouses in the province.

Can be Proud of Part Played
By British Government.
Says Preacher
Speaking from the words—"The end
ii.  not  yet"—on  Sunday   evening       in
the Metnodist church, Rev. w. Lash
ley Hall made direct application to
tne European situation,
It was a   situation never  faced    be-
[ore, a   'rave moment In history. The
World fabric was shaken. We were
right in following the lead of such
men as the archbishop of Canterbury
in di rei-tiiig tin- mind of the people to
prayer, be said. No doubt some
would talk ibout the end ol the
world, lint the end was not yet.
God's program would be completed
lirst, even if needs be over the ruins
of civilization.
The speaker prayed that, if it were
possible, even at the last moment the
worst might be averted. We must,
however, recognize conditions. We
could be proud of the part pluyed by
the British government during the
prolonged crisis in trying to bring
about an understnnding. If need arose, in the hour of dunger, we could
with u clear conscience all stand together In the breach.
It, was a grave moment, into which
the ancient prophets would rend a
larger meaning. Whatever the issue,
tbe hand of God would be found directing, through all the events that
were happening the war nnd bringing
the world ton further stage ln the
load   to  Anal   good.

Huge Sums Spent by Tourists
—Production of Elticent
An government publication
lias recently been issued by the Do- i
minion parks branch of the department of the interior. It consists of a
email souvenir booklet, urtisticalh
bound In duplex leather wild grass
paper and tied with an olive    green
nilk cord. The lettering is embossed
in gnlil and a very unique design has
leen chosen for the cover. The letter

Bind In this is inset ii spiny of Canadian heather Irom the Rocky Mount
itins park, the purplish Dowers of the
heather against the wood-brown back
ground making a very attractive color combination, The matter is set
up in   10  point   Caslon Old Style   and
the booklet la illustrated throughout
with vignettes nt scenes in the Banff
and Yoho parks printed In golden olive by     the offset   method.   By this
method, which has sh far been but
little used In Canada, the dtlliculty
which formerly existed In printing
half tones on anything hut smoothfaced paper lias been overcome. The
process Involves taking an Impression
from the plate on a cylinder covered
With a rubber blanket and then transferring or offsetting It to the paper,1
which is carried round a third cylinder.
It. will no doubt be a surprise to
many to learn tbat Canada possesses
a heather of her own, Tins plant is
UOt, B8 it has si.met lines been called,
b "poor relation" of the Scotch heather, but has a family connection and
btanding eif its own well recognized
by botanists, i( : is nearly allied to
the Heath e.f th British Isles. The
booklet gives in Interesting account
of the locality trom which the souv
cmr was gathered, Simpson pass,
about 30 miles south nf Hand, and
of some of tin- legends aud stones

where hoys and men could camp and
fish and study nature, where the sick
and delicate could lind new stores of
health in the great out of doors, by
right of citizenship, without leave or
hindrance of anyone."
There is still within easy reach of
many of our large cities, land available for such a purpose which is either public domain or procurable at low
<ost. It would seem worth while considering the advice given by Ambassador Bryce In Ottawa, before his return to England, namely, that the
time to set aside public domain for
the future needs of thc people is now,
not when the encroachments of civilization have rendered this almost Impossible.

A    general     European    war    would
mean armies mustering a strength of
over 20,000,000 in the field. The naval
activities     would  involve  over 1,300
|warshipsof      different    classes.      The
I alignment of the powers in Europe in
, the event, of general hostilities would
be as follows.
Triple Entente— Russia, France,
Great Britain, Roumania, Spain, Ser-
via, Greece.
Triple Alliance—Germany Austria,
Italy, Bulgaria.
The military forces represented    by
each of the powers is shown by,a comparative table of strength as follows:
With  Servia
Russia     5,550,000

At the beginning of the week, the
Revelstoke cricket club played Salmon Arm on the Salmon Arm
grounds and the visitors were defeated after a splendid game by 39
i tins on the first inningsl
Revelstoke went to bat first and
scored 73 runs. Salmon Arm then
went in and after scoring 112 for seven wickets declared their innings with
the object of making it a victory by
an innings. Revelstoke needed -10
tuns to save the defeat by an innings
and promptly knocked up SMi for seven wickets. Of these F. Allwood
made in in splendid style hitting no
less than four sixes and two fours,
and W. Rothwell contributed 22 including four fours. In thc first in-
nincs Allwood was also the backbone
of thc score making 11 of the 73 runs
'.' by H. Parker being the next highest score.
The score was as follows:

The reproducing point of
the new Edison Cylinder
Phonograph is a diamond
It was appropriate that when Mr. Edison was
seeking the utmost perfection in sound reproduction he should find that this power lay in
the diamond. He discovered it in the course of
more than 2,500 experiments, always looking toward
rarer sweetness, mellower,
stronger tone.
He has equipped every
new Edison Phonograph with
a diamond-point reproducer.

On   Thursday   evening   last  a  mass j
meeting was held    in the    city hall, i
called  by  Mayor McLaine,  says   the '
Greenwood     Ledge, to   discuss ways
and means ot     meeting     the present ,
serious condition that faces   the fut- i
ure of Greenwood by tbe proposal if
tbe B.C.  Copper company, to   close ;
down their smelter here.   A numb r
of thc leading citizens spoke on the |
subject  .mil     while     ull  were agreed
that tlie shutting down was a serloua
blow    still  there     were  no calamity
bowlers,  in fact all took a very   optimistic view of the situation,   some
even going     so     fur us to say they  j
were glad of the shutdown,  and others said it      might     be the greatest
thing that ever happened to     Green-
wood as it  would encourage the development of our other natural     resources.    Just how  long the company
will keep tlieir works closed or what
are tbe Intentions of the company   is
not  known,   but  if the  citizens      had
something definite to work on then
they wouid know how to face the future. There are many conjectures us
to whut tb" company Will do. Many
believe that it is only a temporary
rhut in order to develop tbe Mother
l.ode mine and the Princess camp at
Princeton, Borne nre of the opinion
that tbe Trnil smelter or Granby
company wil] take bold of the smelter, and others ngnin think thnt it is
only ii scheme to squeeze out the
seiiini shareholders, As was suggested nt the meeting, arrangements
might l.e made with the O.P.R, to
imike special rates for shipping In ore
from Rossland and other camps until development work is fully accomplished, There are many other suggestions but the above seems quite
feasible. Kven tbe most pessimistic
do not believe the proposed shut, I
down is to be permanent. The com- |
piny bave too mnrli at. stake in their I
works here, nearly 81|0OO,0O0 having!
been spent on machinery and con -
structlon, Now Is the time to pntro-
nise your home merchant, keep your
money at home, help and encourage
one another and all will pull through
the lull period, and come, out stronger and better than ever. Encourage
the miner, encourage the prospector,
and let. ns all encourage the man'who
settles on fiirm binds, of which there
are manv opportunities around Greenwood. The end of Greenwood Ib not
yet, in tact, it is only in ite infancy,
and it is now being freely expressed
on tbe streets that Greenwood will
pull through and come out better
than ever.
