He shut the  directors out of the office, bolted the  doors, pitched into them in the various  issues of the paper, and only got the  worst of it when his enforced confinement with type and printers ink  made him feel dry, and the directois  seized the opportunity afforded by his  going out to get a drink to get  possession of their ow n office.

RAILWAY  NEWS  THE GRAND TRUNK.  Mr. Sloan. M. P.. After Them.  Mr. Sloan was informed by Hon.  Mr. Kmmcrson that the government  liad no record of any information  that the G. T. P. had completed any  surveys for its line in British Columbia. It was the government's intention to urge the early construction  of the line in this section. '  Senator Templeman says in the  event of Brirish Columbia not being  fairly treated by 'the Grand Trunk  Pacific company, the government will  take steps to compel 'them to commence early construction on the  coast.  The general belief among British  Columbia members is the Giand  Trunk Pacific will secure the charter  of'the Pacific  Northern.    The latter  with these properties and generally a  move in the securities backed by him  is successful.' This one has been no  exception. It was carried on without  the slightest opposition from the inside party and in fact with their connivance.  The inside parties in both roads are  holding their stocks in expectation of  immense earnings through the spring  months, when the earnings of 1904  weie cut to pieces by the worst winter  Canada has met for years. , The net  earnings of Canadian ��������� Pacific in the  month of February are said to be put  down at an increase of thousands per  cent. Last year the month was a dead  loss, the road running behind on its  fixed charges some $300,000 owing to  the very bad winter. The.Soo line is  also looking forwaul with confidence  to the movement of traffic in great  volume in the early months of the  year as it too suffered very severely in  1901.  The Hon. Jefferson M.

H   is -that  cursed suspicion'that one section is  trying to get ahea'd of another that  -is   the   cause   of   all  the trouble.  No one disputes that ii tho station  can be placed on the south side of  ,the track without demoralising the  'railway4rallic connected' with tho  yard it should be done."    The railway odicials themselves will admit  that, and every'citizen   should   be  aljbvo tho narrow position of striving to have it in his own back-yard.  If the people'of   tlovelbloko   want  their town and district to  progress  as it should .the   first filing they  have to do , is . to   lcur.n to respect  each'other's opinion's and  pull  together instead of  fighting, like the  proverbial   Kilkenny ' cats.

But it is not alone as; a. news-  papei the M.AIL stands out as part  of Revelstoke. . lie Mail oflice,  from the fact of its first-class print;  ing equipment 'is an important  factor in the industrial development oi the city and district.

THE STATION QUESTION.  It is a matter of the greatest  regret that so much trouble should  have arisen in the city over' the  question of a station site, and that  it should have resulted in a renewal of the feud-upper town vcrsu3  lower town. The business men of  Revelstoke are not a pack of school  boys and should be able to meet  and discuss such manners dispassionately as business men;-in  a business way without fighting  over it, and becoming parties to a  MILLINERY  OPENING.  C.  B. Hume  & Companyt Ltd.  A bower of loveliness, is the, tfirm  ������-e heard one lady use in describing C.  B. Hume it Cos millinery parlors on  Wednesday evening, the result of Miss  Ward's annual display of millinery,  specially purchased by herself in the  eastern cities. We are indebted to  Miss Ward for the following information ��������� All. hats are ,to he much  smaller this season, the croxvn higher,  the brims narrower. Toques are to be  more popular than ever and fexver  bonnets xvill be seen. There xvill be a  large demand for a made-up hat composed entirely of chitf'on. Plateau  hats xvill once more be popular. Black  hat-, xvill be much trimmed with  ribbon and feathers. Flowers, foliage.  Crinoline strnxv, mohair, faille, tulle  and chiffon are to be'the materials.  Colors xvill be soft greens, opheha, all  shades of brown and the new copper.  - Ombrie ribbons, picot edge ribbon,  and sequin bandings are to be used in  the Hpring confection. ,  Reid and Young.  Miss Shook succeeded in making a  most attractive display of picture  hats, polo and boat tunstnns and the  many pretty ideas in the season's  millinery fashions.    '  The xveok hits been a pretty hot one  over the question of ,.tho site for tho,  newstatio'n. - On Monday tho Mayor  was invited to attend,a meeting at 0.  S.

J'. R. ollicials, hoxvever. contend the site of the "new station is  practically the one already in existence, and that the B.ailway Commissioners have no authority- to  interfere as tlicy would in the case of  an entirely different site, being selected,  so it is probable the company xvill. go  ahead with the station-as originally  intended, though' there are also reports that the effect of the agitation  will'be to bang up' the proposed nexv  station and yard impiovements 'altogether and to -leave Revelstoke without a decent station for some years as  happened at Vancouver and Golden.  This decision would be a matter of the  Hi eatest regret because the ,city has  been building largely on il'ic projected  railway improvements proposed by the  C. 1'.

Tho ceremony Is described  as follows:  The yabam (brother-in-law) ' must  have bis right foot, on which the shoe  is placed, washed very scrupulously,  and after he has strapped it'on ho  must walk four cubits in the presencs  of the judges. Then the chief of the  judges , roads the following passage,  which the ,yabaruah (xvoman) repeats  word for word: "My brother-in-law refuses to raise'-unto'his brother a name  in Israel; he will not marry me.". Then  the yabam is required to repeat tbe  sen'tenoe, "I do not wish to take her,"  He,then presses bis.rigbt-fGot-against  the floor while she looses the straps  xvith bar right hand, takes off the shoe'  and throws It some distance' away.  Then she places herself in front of tbe  yabam. spits on. (lie floor in front of  hi in and repents these words after tbe  presiding judge: "Ho shall it be done  unto (lint man xvlio xvill not build up  bis brother's house, and his name shall  be called iri Israel 'lbe house of,.him"  that hatli his shoe loosed.'
