enfiladed the Russian trenches, being

Shimose shells. At midnight on

directing their movement principally
against a strong redoubt, but they
were repulsed. '.Simultaneously an
attack was launched against the Russian trenches further east, but before

last night but the small attend nice

xiin schools.
Mr. Floyd, on behalf of the schoo
tuistccs, s.iid the main work dining
the year was the opening of the high
school, which was wai-ianted by tin
fact that 19 out of 21 passed the en
trance examinations, livery-room in
the new school was now occupied and
they had been under the necessity of
getting aiK-thcr teacher. The cose ol
the schools to the city was f8,398.03,
of which the government contributed'
$4,S31.70, but tho superintendent of
education was advocating the cities
should pay a greater shine of thc cost'
of education, while he considers! the
cities should pay less. Compared
with TNelson the cost of education was
very favorable to Revelstoke, where it
cost the city $300 11 month ns against
itSOO 11 month in TNelson.
Mr. Palmer regretted the absence of
the chaiiman of trustees, Mr. bind-
inark. As to the superintendent of
education advocating the burden on
thc city should be increased, no cloiibt
that vvas tbe intention of the government, as the sup rintenclcnt - wa��
meioly the iiiouihpieco.of the government. It would be something like
that $2000 the government had pio-
miscd them for the high school���they
never got it and never would. Ho
wished to sny thoy Intel in Mr. Miller
a principal who was second to none
in the province. They should have
more 11111I0 teachers on the stall'. Ah
he bad been iisgccl to do so he would
again offer his services as trustee.
A hearty vote of thanks wiis nccoid-
ecl the mayor, aldermen and schoo
trustees for the excellent manner in
which they hud discharged thcii
clutic-i to the city during the year.

T������be1Kootena\>flfoail  (oi-houI'Je.-'Ola&CL)  SATURDAY-,  JANUAUV.7, Li)Of>  Sir Wilfred Laurier .says' as the  result of his trip through  the western .states    he   is ��������� satisfied     the  Canadian west is the  greatest west  ��������� there is. ,    *   -     ���������'' ,  " , It "is to be hoped "the mining  .men of the south will not .-endorse'  the proposition made at- Rossland  Board of Trade for, a bounty on  copper. . Copper can hold its own  the world over, and it is  better.,to  assist tor?  live   withou  waste public  sarv subsidie:  uncces-  ,\\'e trust the McBride government will keep the. promise of its  premier io install a Jerry across  - the Okanagan Lake at, Kelovvna in  the coming spring. The west side  of lake is badly hampered for want  of communication."and it is getting  just as important as the east side.  The'wagon road should also be  extendedjrom Peachland,.to Sum-  cherlancl.  The great success attending the  operation of the Nickel Plate mine  at Hedley promises much for the  future oi the lower Okanagan and  Similkcmeen as soon as transportation is afforded. There is  every reason to believe there will  be a" dozen Nickel Plates where  now there is one. .That means an  important home market to the  farmer and there is no market  beats a mining market.  fflPSt  British Columbia cities should  -take into consideration the exemption of improvements from taxation.  Improvementc should be encouraged  in every possible way. and to tax  them is to handicap progress and  ' industry. Let the extra taxation  be put on unimproved lands, and  make the ah.-f-ntee.- pay a fair share  of ihe added values given to their  lands by their improving neighbors.  Edmonton ha; adopted the progressive principle and the city will  bene lit from it.  LAND FOR SETTLEMENT.  A matter that require.- urgent  attention al tie.- hand.- of the legislature, a.- tin I'uvi.-rnmont seem? to  do nothing, is the removal of  re.-ervaiior.- from large blocks of  public land.- * Settlement is blocked aud the effects of the evil unbecoming intO-t-ified. The country  from the"Boilnd-I-ry lo Pcntieton i.-  ti'_d up vvitli tne -lloiiuiibia and  Western railway reserve, and lsiiiil.-  lie idle which would be t.xken up  by hundreds of settlers if ihey  could get title. Tbe mutter of  Indian reserves al.-o requires lo be  dealt with. In Okanagan and  Siinilkamecn tlie.-e huge re-erve.-  of idle land are a serious drawback to progre.-.-. The area? should  be limited to .-.neb a.- aro actually  required and Used by the Indians,  and the rest thrown open for  settlement. This is a work to  which Duncan Boss. M. IV might  apply himself.  l\ v  The Standard Oil Company have  reduced tbe price of oil l-> cents in  three weeks.  Avvful weather has'been experienced  in New York, several deaths resulting  from extreme cold.  'The'Liberals for the provincial ric!  ing of Okanngan hud a .large and  successful meeting for organisation in,  Vernon last week. Much enthusiasm  exists among the rank and (ile, and  they bnve made up their minds.not. lo  be caught napping vvlien the expectcd  dissolution , takes place, T. W  Fletcher, of Ariiistronj., was elc-tot  president; ' A. bridgman, .secretary;  and S. C. Smith, treas. Conveners of  local committees were also appointed  ind their duties' defined. Hitherto  there has been'no Liberal association  of'this kind, from thc absence of which  urge tiun'ibcrs of votes have been left  unpolled on election dav.  Tho members,of the Mebrido government arc evincing .considerable  uneasiness iit the'prospect of an early  mooting'of the Legislature and the  probable outcome of a dissolution of  tin; house. Tho.standing nf this bid  ing is rut her'dubious if we may judgo  by the particular- interest in it they  are developing. 11 is only two or throe  weeks' since the premier paid ufi a  visit-wdth-UjCi.purpose" of pouring oil  on the troublctbwaters, and last week  wo'hiid a visit from ���������the. Hon, F. .J  Fulton, provincial secretary, with "the  ostensible purpose of. ascertaining the,  iicc'-spf this valley. "' We understand  he was lavish, in promises, .but,..of  course, this is what we. might'expect  nt this'particular, junctiuc, although  thoy nie not likely to iniiterinlize.  Spcaking'tit a meeting Hon.C!. W.  Ross, Premier bf Ontario,,said :���������" It  was the glory oLthc Liberal party that  it had given freedom of speech to  everybody, in ' Parliament 'an't out uf  it. It, vvas the glory "of thc Liberal,  pnity'that it, bus been the fertile soil  in all those great progressive measures  in'Church and St'ate which have,made  Canada, which have made Knglnnd,  :l'rcc, ancl which makes us proiid of  being . Ib'itisb subjects, whether on  Canadian soil or on other soil."    .  A Socialist convention was to .meet  iit Vancouver today. One of the  most important mutters is planning  a new election law for the province.  The Socialists allege under'the present system a man who is out of work  and away from home forfeits his right  of voting. Thus a man cannot vote  at Kevelstoke if his niinio is on the  voters' list in Vancouver. The  Socialists wish this changed so that a  man may vote' wherever election day  happens to hit hini, supposing that he  isfin the province at that time.1  '    ' '  That   the- government   is   on   tne  ragged edge of anxiety Lr-iopaicnt to  all; hence their  soIic,itucl^>jJ; mollify  any   antagonb.ing   clement,   befcao  a  vote of want .of   coiil'ider*^   relegates  them to Ihe opposili^"BBw)cs.

The ' Arrowhead Lumber Company  are again shinning lumber.  The Big Bend Lumber Company  have shut down their logging camp  at Fourteen Mile.  The Big Bend Lumber Co's mill  started up again Wednesday after be-  ing*shut down for n few days through  a mishap to the plant.  In tbc past six months from lumber alone tbe revenue of 13. 0. bus  exceeded $200,000, unci accoiding to a  conservative report the revenue for  tbc fiscal year ending June 30 will  aggregate $305,000 or $1,000 a day.  B. C. Lumbermen have decided to  reduce the price list on Lumber.  The Mundy Lumber Company is  making great headway with the  arrangements for its new mill at  Three Valley Lake. Camps have been  built to accommotlate'SO men, a dam  is being built in Three Valley Creek  for slashing out logs, and a store and  freight room 2-lxS7 feet has been  built alongside the railway track."
