Auditor Stein Before Council.—Will Finish Report This
Week. — Trades Licenses Discussed. Delinquent
Licenses of Prominent Citizens Handed to Chief of
Police for Collection.—-Meeting Adjourned till Auditor's
Report is Ready.
There was  an adjourned  session  of j       AUDITOR BEFORE COUNCIL
the city council on Monday evening in      Mayor  Kilpatrick  then stated that
the city hall at 8 p.m.   Present Mayor      Kilpatrick,   Aldermen MeKinnon,
Howson,  Abrahamson and Bourne.
Mayor Kilpatrick—As this is an ad-
journed meeting, we will dispense with
the reading of the minutes of the pro-   any information about the audit,
viotis meeting,  but you can let       us
hear any communications there are.
City Clerk Gordon then read a letter from Canada Ltd., regarding a
book they wer ■ offering for $3.75 also
a letter from the Businessmen's As -
soeiation of Vancouver, which enclosed a very lengthy petition strongly op
posing the present banking system,
and recommending that ths government should conduct the banks. They
set forth in pari that under ihe present Do.iiaion Banking system a periodical ti,htU'-s of mon'y was ex-
pi ri. n ed and quite frequintly this resulted in the ruin of many businessmen throughout the country. The idea
of the govern.nent owning the banks
was to provid.' for a more liberal
treatment of the banks clients1 and to
provide again-t the periodical tight -
ining of the  banks.
Mayor Kilpatrick—I don't like the
tone of that letter it appears to savor oi politics too much.
Aid. MeKinnon-- There are -ome
good points io it. but the council certainly e-an't undertake the securing oi
signatures io that petition.
Mayor Kilpatrick—In my opinion
the present banking system is a great
-ate valve, it prevents over real estate speculation and business men un-
ing their business cash for speculation. It doe's them good to be cheeked
up once in :l  while'.
After ;l general discussion that was
freely indulged iu by all the council.
All. MeKinnon moved, seconded by
Aid. Hows'on, that the petition above
r< lerr d to be referred to tho Board
of Trade.
The question ot pure basing the book
from the Canada. Ltd., was next dis-

Auditor Stein—Kight throu;h the
taxes we will show you jusi what are

Mayor Kilpatrick—Are the accounts
correct as far as meter readings, etc.,
and about the police books. 1 think
all public accounts should be audited
and whin will you have the audit ■ o.n
Auditor Stein—1 will stay here now
till it is lomplete of course' there are
a number of doubtful ite ns which I
will simply have to put up to the
council for disposition.
Muyor Kilpatrick was oi opinion
lhal all the work on the' sewer and

Aid. MeKinnon—I took ihe mailer
of the sewer and tlumo up with Mr.
Stein this afternoon.
Aid. Abrahainson—Can Mr. Steiu

Auditor Stein—Ve-'.
After more discussiou Mayor Kiipat

H. C. McLcod, formerly manager ol |
the Bank of Nova Scotia, who      has j
advocated  lank    reforms    for    years, '
paid Hon. W.   T. White, Minister     of i
Finance, a high compliment when   on
thc stand before the Banking and Com I
mcrce Committee,  for  the progressive
measiii-! which be had  drafted.        He
frankly slated that he had given    up '
agitating any reforms  owing  to    the
indifference and even hosiility  of    the
Laurier     government.   He     was told
thai there would be n0 changes made,
and   the  Act      which  was  drafted  by
Hon. W. S. Fielding and which     Mr.
White found when he came into office
showed that, the former minister   had
made  practioally no changes ir.     the
Act a* it stood.
When one follows ihe Banking and
Commerce Committee he is not so sur
prised at the stand of the old government. It is a striking thing that practically all of the stand-patters and
i dictionaries on the committee are
Liberals and they have steadfastly opposed any progressive changes.
As a result of     the  taking ol   evidence from all over Canada and from
all classes, Hon   Mr.  White is preparing      to s:ill further strengthen     the
Bank Act, and particularly the claus- I
cs  referring     to  lank  audit.   As  for
bank Inspection the evidenoe all wenjt
to show that an inspection to be thor !
ottgh at all would have to include   an
inspection ol every hianeh in the Do-j
minion, a costly, cumbersome and un- '

Of Leading   Montreal  Daily
indorses GIN   PILLS
IVE long years of
su fit-ring from
Kidney Trouble—
two boxes of GIN
PILLS —and it's
nil gone. That has
beeu lhe experience
of Mr. Eugene
Quesnel, Chief City
Circulation Agent
of La I'ntrie, of
Montreal. He
describes it
feelingly :
May 3rd, 1912
'I have been suffering Irom Kidney
Trouble for over live long years. I
had also Rheumatism in all my bones
ami muscles, could not sleep nights and
011 senile occasions could hardly walk.
I hail been treated by some of our best
I'hvsicians but without relief nnd I lost
over fifteen pounds. One day I met
one of mir leading hotelkeepers, who
had been cured by your famous GIN
I'l I.'.S, .1111 be ailvi-ecd me to try them.
So 1 bought two boxes at my druggist's
and before I hail used one box I felt a
big change. Before I finished the
second oue 1 was completely cured.
I era assu-e you I can hardly believe
it for if I had only known what I know
now 1 would not lave spent over One
Hundred Dollars for nothing when two
boxes of GIN PILLS cured me."
GIN PILLS are gaining a world-wide
reputation, by the way they conquer the
mo-t  obstinate cases' of   Rheumatism
and all kinds of Kidney Trouble.

Present "De-Vetopment Warrants the Assurance tohat it is Coming to Its Otvn
The  Reasons:
Railway developments alone within the next four years will put into circulation in the vicinity of
Revelstoke forty millions of dollars. This^City will Le the Pay-Roll town for the distribution of
the bulk of the wages paid out on the double-trackirm and the big six-mile tunnel through the
CROWN LANDS-The rich agricultural lands tributary to the town are opening for settlement and will mean much for the future
prosperity of the district.
TIMBER RESOURCES~'ri''butary to Revelstoke is a timber wealth estimated at about fifty billions of feet, situated upon the Columbia River and its tributaries.
Within a radius of thirty miles of the town are five large sawmills  with the offices   of the   Forest  Mills, Limited, situated within
the corporate limits.    This Company is admitted to be the largest corporation of its kind in the interior of British Columbia.
TOURIST CENTRE-"The Capital of Canada's Alps," has been chosen by the C. P. R. for the location of one of its world-famed tourist
hotels. The Park Reserve on the summit of Mount Revelstoke, known as Victoria Park, makes scenic attractions unequalled in
any part of the mountains. The scenic Auto Road, from Revelstoke to Victoria Faik, is in itself a unique attraction not found in any
other part of Canada.
What the Empress Hotel has been to Victoria, such will the above attractions be to Revelstoke.
This Tourist Trade will mean to Revelstoke about one million dollars per year.
REVIVAL OF MINING The financial world has awakened to the opportunities now offering in the mineral realm, and never since the
golden days of the nineties has the mining industry had such a favorable outlook.
Thc Lardeau and Fish Creek Camps to the south, the golden Big   Bend district  to  the north, are tributary assets which mean much
for the prosperity ofthe town.   The new mining camp on Shuswap Lake, to the west, cannot be overlooked in this connection.
PREDICTION "Within five years the railway development and exploitation of natural resources will make of Revelstoke a town of twenty
to twenty-five thousand people.
I take this opportunity oi asking the public of Revelstoke and those owning property here, to give ne tbeir listings,  or, if in search of property, to give me
an opportunity of showing my lists of inside and district bargains.
REMEMBER that I am handling only local property and ask the support of all citizens loyal to the interests of Revelstoke.
Having a wide connection throughout the country owing to my" association with the lecal newspapers for the past sixteen years, I am able to place before
the investing public the claims of Revelstoke for consideration.

How Concrete

Easy For Yoa
This ljil.fl u ynur tusmranc. of
t.itttfact.ry cuncrtit murk
UNTIL a few years ago farmers considered concrete a rather
mysterious material, that could be used successfully only by
experts. They knew that upon the quality of the cement
depended much of the success of concrete work. They had no
n 'e-jting cement, jui.Ii as I :.f contra 'i so could
not lie sure of its quality.
Vet the farmer needed concrete.
1 le was kept from using this best and mo*t economical ol rr. .("rials by
I.   Lack of knowledge of how to mix and piace concrete.
2. Lack of a brand of cement upon lhe quality of which he
could absolutely rely.

do not rnuse griping, nausea, purging or excessive looseness. They
tend to tone and strengthen intestinal
