''The  speaker <detailed the  under    which   the  British Columbia u.is liist oigani'-ed,  at confederation, showing it w.ts the  almost uii.in'iiiHiUs wish of the people  to have free non-sectaiian schools  Tl c wi=dom of this decision is found  in i lie fact that no one creed can be  de 'led on to be taught, and that  dinvrent denominations cannot agree  to inrmulatc any common religious  faith. , It was not necessary, as some  people asseittri. to teach a creed to  teach morality. 'It may be assumed  that children have learned the primary  truths of leligion in the home or at  church, or at Sunday school. Assuming this, 'the teacher may give instruction in the inoi.il titiths which  all could accept. In addition to this  the teacher may u'-c all subjects as n  means of moral training. Children  should be trained to habits of regularity, punctuality, industry, neatness,  obedience, tiuthiiilneas, honesty. Besides, common moral and religion's  truths appeared in their most attractive forms in ^lessons in history and  literature.  The speaker recognised the importance of moial and religious teaching,  but held that the schools aic now  doing'more towards carrying out the  work than is done through any other  agency. Our schools, maintained the  speaker, are] permeated by religious  teaching. They form the character  on which the church has to build.  While parental responsibility has  weakened, the influence of the public  school has increased. It is the saving force of modem society. The  term "Godless"'or "Pagan" cannot Lc  justly applied to schools in a christian  community, in which the  highest re-  * That'Mcssis. Fraser  a'uditoia. , i '    '     ,  -"   OTl-'ICEKS.'

Minister of Education, was present   nnd  elected   an  .honorary memher of the institute.  Mr. .Burns gave an address on "Lit-  -erature for High  School   Entrance."  Ke urged the  value  of the .study   of  literature in their schools.    It trained  ���������the   mind;   improved   the   student's  language.   Two plans had so far been  adopted: (1) To have for study a book  of excerpts, such n<  their readers; (2)  to study a more   complete   story   or  poem.      The   latter   was   much   the  superior.    They had in   "The Lay of  tlie Last Minstrel" a connected poem.  This was the  poem   selected   hy   the  department to replace on the curriculum   the  poem   "Evangeline."      Mr.  Burns illustrated  his  address   in   an  interesting manner.      He pointed out  ���������that in teaching this poem difficulties  ���������would arise fiom the facts that timci  and manners hud changed, the wonting obscure, and pronunciation different from theirs. l  Mr. Blair again took up the subject  of drawing.  Hon. II. .1. Fulton' gave a short  address.  AI'TKIIN-OO.V SESMO.V.     '  J. D. Buchanan gave tin address  on "primary arithmetic."   "'  The session concluded with an address on "histoiy" by Dr. Hay.  I'viu.w Meeti.vci.  A public meeting in connection  with tlie institute was held Thursday  night. Mr. Wilson, the president, in  the chair. It opened with nn instrumental duet on the piano by Misses  Fraser and Dent.  The chairman said, they were proud  of their present minister of education  because he kept his promises.  Hon. F. J. Fulton said he felt proud  of the position which lie held as  minister of education and honored by  being asked to address them, and by  being elected an honoiary member of  their institute. He believed their  standard of education in this province  was very littlo behind any other part  of the dominion, and there could be  no question the school system of  Canada was  second   to  none  in   the  world, as was evidenced by the British  government adopting the, school  system of .New Brunswick for South  Africa. ' (Cheers.), He had realised at  their meeting more than ever before  the work the teachers were doing.  THE  GKOWTH   OK   REVEI/5TOKK  had 'impressed him very m'ueh. He  saw a wonderful change from his last  visit, and'wished to congratulate the  people of Revelstoke on the growth of  their city. When here before he was  told the population was about  2,000and today 'he was informed  it was 3,500. i One fact , which  showed the growth of 'Revelstoke was  the school 'attendance, which 'had increased so much their, school was now  being classed with the second class  cities, which was a very marked increase iiv three., or 'four years.    Their  ��������� i '   '    '  high school was also doing well.  He wished" to cbngiatulato the convention oiythe excellent show of work,,  much of which was simply wonderful.  He also wished  to congratulate  the  president on the success of  his efforts  which .had  brought, about   this con-  vent'on  with ,su'ch  excellent  results,  lie referred'to  the  value of  manual  training igiven  as the results of the  financial assistance given by Sir Win.  Macdonald.    This'was now recognised  us one of the most important branches  of educational., work. ' He  contended  the government should also encourage  higher education.    ,lie referred to the  Rhodes ��������� scholarships, unci said   he had  great admiration  for  the  works with  which Mr. Robinson, superintendent  of education, vhad done.   Then there  were  the scholarships 'given   by. Mr.  ummerfelt,  and'he  hoped   his  example   would   be  followed   by 'other  wcaltliys'msn.' -The Dean of   McOill  University'was also  hcie with   a view  to arranging with  the government to  make Vancouver high school an aflili-  atcd ���������college of the ('university.'  The  government were anxious to promote  the educational  interests'of the province'^, arid, one  tiling they had  done  was the founding of a 'normal ,school,  the results of  which  had been- most  encouraging.   (Cheers.)  ',      THE SOI 1001. I1I1.I.. ,     i-  Ho.was curious to  know hoiV the.new  school act, of'which he was the fat]ii}i'.  was bcin'u leceived   thiough the country.     The cost of education luid been  lncipusiiig rapidly) and sonielhii <z hud  to be^lone.   He quoted.'ngures to .-!;-.w  $1)20,000' -would   have  been   required  l.'st session -to   meet requirements ot  education  under  the  former  s\stciii.  The cost had grown   from a tenth to a  sixth uf the  total revenue of   tlio province, nnd with the exception of Manitoba was the largest per capita cost of  .in.\  piovince.     He gave Superintendent Kobinson   consideiable  credit  for  his'shaic  in  the  ir.iining of  the new  school bill, and argued its etfect would  be to inciease  the  interest   taken  in  education   by the people, while as   to  the objections urged against it,  in one  district, tlie  lower ' Eraser, where  the  members' of the legisb.tuie had   given  the strongest  opposition,  he  was  informed   by  the  inspector  the  people  told him   they  lecognised  something  had to be done, and were well satislied  with it. ^ ������  A song was given by Mr. Sullivan.  Dr. Hay, oi St. Johns, was called on  to speak, .but,said after the'lengthy  addiess of Mr. Fulton and the late  hour he would not give the paper he  had prepared. They .had made him  feel at home. He remarked this pro-  pi nee paid its teachers better than  any other province and better than  most of the states.  ' W". Elley contributed a piano solo,  and a song by Mrs. Bews, accompanied  liy Miss' Dent on the piano, and Mr.  Hastings on the cello, was much  appreciated, and the meeting adjourned with singing of the ' National  Anthem.  THURSDAY'S SESSION.  On Thursday Mr. Burns gave an  address on thn Rural School, pointing  out there were in the province 283 of  the.-e schools. The aim of the  work of the teachers should lie to train  them to take their places as citizens.  In the rural district the school was  often the only public institution, and  these schools deserved all the help the  state could give them.  H. Dunnell read a paper on color  work in schools, and in the afternoon  .1. D. Buchanan gave an analytical  address on the teaching of composition.  Resolutions.  The following resolutions were  adopted:���������  That the Institute place  on record  its sense of loss by the death of Messrs.  Hunter, Anderson and Martin, and its  sympathy with their families.  That the Institute convey  to  the  people   of,. Revelstoke   through    the  Mayor their thanks for the  kindness'  and hospitality extended to them.  That the Institute records its thanks  to thfe Hon. Minister of Education for.  his address to the Institute.  That the thanks of the institute be  accorded Dr. Hay for1 his .interesting  and useful addresses. Dr. Hay, in'  acknowledging the vote, said he would  cherish througlPthe pleasing recollections of his life the ..three days he had  , \ 4 I.  spent with them in Revelstoke., Their  institute was a_t high'water mark.  A proposal to'do away with the midwinter entrance examination was lost.  "That the institute records a resolution of sympathy with Miss Currie of  Salmon Arm in her recent serious accident and wishing her a speedy recovery. . ' "  That it is the opinion of the institute,'the semi-central examinations  sliould be held simultaneously. ,  That the department give earlier  notice of the drawing work for each  year. ' ,_     '  A motion by Mr. Fulton that, the'  lieut-governor be requested to appoint  an ' examiner in connection with the  London University was defeated by 14  to 13. ,  ''The president, tendered the thanks  of the'inttitute to,the staff of the Revelstoke school, and especially to Mr.  Milloiyfor the excellent arrangements  made for 'the meeting., I le said tlie  city of Revelstoke was fortunate.in  having a Man like Mr," Miller at its  school affairs.

On the other hand, I believe the  men realize that our deposits of iow  grade ores can only be worked when  smelting rates aie favorable; also that  British Columbia smelters have to  compete with foreign smelters, where  there are no restrictions on the hours  of labor, and that they will meet the  employers in a spirit oi fairness. The  proposed law was not to come into  force for a year, and I trust within  the^year all parties interested will  make an honest effort to bring about  an amicable arrangement, and 1 think  I should be remiss in my duty did I  not take the first opportunity to warn  smelter managers that they can not  be too prompt in taking the initiative  in the matter.''  wokkmln's co.mi'1-..vsatiox.

NEW PATENTS.  Kowlimd Brian in, patent attorney,  Vancouver, rt port.- : A Canadian  patent issued to K. J. Swyny and S.  J. Plucknett, oi Sydney, X. S. W.. on  an improved process for extraction of  fine mineral particles from' slimes,  tailings and the like. The device  consists of a circular tank in which  are revolving stirrers which thorough-  ItV mix the tailings with water. Fiom  'this tank the several -.trata are withdrawn through separate launders and  distributed over a serit-.- of vibrating  troughs and through a classifier,  passing finally over a shaking concentrating box or table to the tailings  discharge. The object throughout is  to thoroughly wet the mineral particles of the material under treatment  and effect the separation of them from  their associated gangue under  water.  Dr. Newton Drier, Vancouver, has  received a Canadian patent on an  improved surgical arm splint, the  object of which has been to afford a  means for endwise adjustment of the  double elements of the splints of either  arm or forearm so that when applied  to a Jiiiictured limb the desiied extension may be obtained between the  fractured ends after the parts have  been brought together, the splint being also supported from the ches-t of  the. patient.

The.-e were in a yard oft'i the  lane lending from the house where the  ^dreadful deed was done, and   had evi-  ���������denfcly   been   thrown   there    by   the  -murderer as he was leaving the place.

'Jt was buried in the ash box attached  -.to the stove. - '  A' xciv light.    -  These discoveries throw a new light  on   the matter, i There   was  method  in    the     madness    which   appealed  -,at     first     to , have   actuated     the  murderer,    which   eshows  i the   perpetrator   of    the    murder   to    have  fceen one of the most brutal  and  calculating criminals ever heard of.     He  Inew there were circumstances which  -would indicate jealousy as  a  motive.  ���������His mutilation of the body after death  would, he recognized, point to such a  motive, and thus divert suspicion from  his own motive.     And  this  was  the  .-effect, as the police are  now  satisfied  -the Japanese arrested were  innocent,  though jealousy as a  motive pointed  more distinctly to one of these  than  to anyone else.  It    was    a    matter    of   common  report in the  vicinity   that  6he  had  from one to two .thousand' dollars in  her possession, but the murderer ��������� was  , disturbed at his hellish work.  MURDERER WAS DISTURBED.  It is known a white man visited  - the house about 4 a. m., ringing at  i-the front and back doors.     He got no  answer but heard some person step-  , ping about the house���������evidently  the  murderer. Thus disturbed, he evi-  . dently got out of the house as soon as  the visitor disappeared, feeling it was  -unsafe to stay longer to complete the  ��������� robbery of-the woman's effects.  The deliberateness of  the murderer  is shown -by several circumstances.  'Tho footmarks in the hall show he  rtook off his shoes. He may even have  .-taken off his blood-stained clothing and  FINANCIAL  Sidelights   on   Life, Insurance  Investments.

WAKE UP.  If the citizens of Revelstoke  are  in earnest we should  advise  them  to form a strong tourist association.  No city in' Canada affords ' a ' finer  field   for   this   work.      Wilh   the  attractions  of- the 'liig' Bend, the  Arrow Lakes, Jiagle Pass, Rogers  Pats  with    their  fishing  streams,  mountains',   -glaciers,      ice-fields,  caves, and other natural attractions  thes-e   mountains    should   become  the   world's   play   ground.    r Los  Angelesois a grand example of what  the,residents  of  a  city can  do to  promote   the   tourist   traflic   and  benefit by it.      Last session 75,000  tourists visited that city, which has  not a tenth part of the   attractions  i   i. .     ' -'  for tourists surrounding Revelstoke  With a bridge across the Columbia  river, the Eagle Pass road re-built,  and a tally-ho put on for the  accommodation of ��������� tourists, with  steamer excursions up and down  tlie Columbia river," with good trails  made to 'the best mountain attractions, Kevelstoke could soon  eiun'for itself a'world-wide name  as a.'touiist res-ort. What-Los  Angeles is today, with its 175,000  people, shows what can be 'done  with tourists, or with a tourist  resort.  SATURDAY,   APRIL iii.  190,1  THE WATliR FRONT.  The   .action,   'taken     by   some  citizens   to   obtain   lights to    the  water-front has   aroused  considerable indignation as'people got  the  idea an  effort^ was  being made  to  levy   toll   on   the   legitimate   recreation of the  people,   many   believing that when the river channel  is straightened  out the  backwater  will form a favorite boating report.  Though we have   no  knowledge of-  the purpose   for   which   the   rights  have been bought, we have an idea  1 it is   for   a   inillsite.

Chris. Johnson, well known bore,  was killed on Thursday night by being  run over,by n freight train. He had  just returned from Vancouver and  had been drinking heavily.

"    "  Who Are The Men.   ,  Editor Kootiixai XIaii.: l  Sm,��������� I t'is whispered about'-town  that some individuals aie applying for  certain foieshore and water rights  on the Columbia River," extending  through tbc town,juubtbat they have  been pressing for the hasty completion of the uruvernment clii'ni and channel, that they might soon -realize tbe  value, of their prospective r. franchise.  Now Sir if there is one thing that tbe  citizens of this town have wished, for  "more than another, it has been for  sonic s.ife, convenient water i-esoit upon which they might freely enjoy  boating and other aquatic pleasures  and exercises,'! and just as they arc  about to realize their expectations, is  it possible we have in our midst such  unmitigated grafters (you piny here  inseit any other word which will better apply to their act) who, to satisfy  their individual ends would , deprive  the public of the lecie.itive boon accruing from tbe expenditure of their  own niiiiioy ? Surely our town and  neighboihood has not too m.my natural "attractions- that, such 'an attempt ns thL can 1 e>toleratcd much  less justified.
