McC.trt.or,  was  held at the  , Opera House, Revelstoke, on Monday  nighl.    Ifev. C. A. Procuniei- was voted  t. the chair, and Mr.  Grogan was ap-  poiiiLed seer clary..    The- building was  t kindlv placed at the disposal, ol'  the  meeting by Mr. Tapping ft oe of charge.  The chairman  1 aving explained the  object of Hit; meeting, Mi*. McC.irter by  1 request explained fully llici position so  far.   Circulars had boon issued to over  '!'.)'.) people ihioughout the district asking I boil* .support, in   tint oslalilishinetit  of ,-i   hospital for the disliicl, as'it was,  felt Ibis Was a matter not affecting the  city of, Revelstoke alono, but was for  , the benefit of the  wholo district.   He  suggested the appointment of special  roinmitlecs to collect' information on  differerlt points affecting  tin* scheme,  one to  intei view  the,* differ out owners  of city hinds and  ascertain  on  what  ,    ul..'nns a suitable site could be got, another to obl.-iin information as to what  suppoi t could  be depended 'upon from  C.P.R. and lumber companies.   He had  i, *  (1 scussi'd   the matter with Mr. 'Carlin,  manager of the Columbia Riven- Lum-  li.-ii* Company, and thr-it gentleman said  that while he lived at Golden/and took  an   interest   in   the hospital thorp, Iih  would   also like to see a hospital  at  .Revelstoke.    That company employed'  il large  number of  men at Kanlt, and  '   hospilitl accon.itKidalion here would be  '   a great convenience tn (lit* men, who  now contiibiito to the Gulden hospital,  its Ihcy did not rare about having anything lo do with lh������. .Kamloops Hospital.    If a' hospital were established at  .Revelstoke Mr.  Cailin would do what  ,h-.' could to obtain for it the support of  ihe men  employed ,,by  the Company  which hi'Vi-pi i-st'titod in the neighbourhood,    Sir, F. Ruhinso*) had .-ilso agreed  to ask   I be mmi employed  by him to  support the scheme.  On   tin* motion 'of   Mr.' M (-Carter, a,  i committee, consisting of Messis. J. M.  Kcliio,  John   Abrnhamson.  T.Kilpat-  prbvision   should   be   made  for those  men   in .case  of  accident,   and  they  should not be put to the hardship of  having to lie conveyed 120 oi 100 miles  to Kamloops and Golden for .treatment,  lie saw no  reason  why they could not  have in Revelstoke such an institution  if  they   would all unite.   (Applause.)  It' -seemed   strnngi*   that    Kevcl.-ioke  should  be so  far  behind  neighboring  places and it was nothing to the credit  of   the   place.     He would not advise  pulling   up'' a   large   building  at, the,  stai t but one that could   be'added to as  required, and  information should   be  obtained as to available sites, cost of  .equipment and maintenance. Of course  if ihe government decided to discontinue their grants it would leave-all  the hospitals in a very difficult position.  Mr.  Atkins contended that if they'  could make out as good a case.as Golden or Kamloops, and if Ihe government  would measure the matter* by the justice   of   the 'case,'  Revelstoke   had   a  larger   population   than   these   places  iiud-inight expect'a larger giant in proportion.    Fur  the sake of those liable  lo accident,   in .their midst, and   the  numbers of people resident here, Hie  establishment of a hospital was a very  proper move.    He heartily approved  of the committee appointed, and believed they would have a business-like  repot t and see where they were at, and  ho hoped the'action taken would result  In  a   hospital   for this    town   v. h'.ch  would   be a  credit to it.

The."it)niiiler.i!ncvof such an institution  would he quite an usideifaking.     The  government was now .-pending $70",(XX)  a year on hospitals.'    He noticed I liar  an ai'iangeineiit had been made for the  Golden  hospital to takeover Ihe railway   work   from   Lnggai)   to .Rogers  P.n������, and that would leave, them very  liltle'teriiloi-y along the railway. Then  when  the, railway'was  built into the  Lirtleau, the  probability  v.as lhal the.  section would be served by the Nelson  hospital.    It wo.ild  then fine he neces-  M.iry to ascertain   what support could  be got 'from, the government toward  lh������ scheme.    An iruporlnni pi.ice like,  lievelsloke nquiicd a   ho-piud.

The government  would be more anxious to  cut down  than to increase  its expenditure.   For  a hospital they  would   require a largo  piece of ground, it good building, anil  that  the.  institution   should   l;o 'well  equipped.  Mr. McCarler pointed  out, .that this  . meeting was not going to commit the  cily  of   Ruvcl.-lokc   in   any    definite  i-cheine,   but was i iteinled   merely to  get information, and when  they  fjot  that  they   would   be  ai Iu   to  decide  whether to go with the scheme, or not.  It was 'lU'ce-jsni^- to the succps-i of the.  scheme   that  the government should  give  n  wvy   stibstantiii!   grant.   -If  places like Golden and Karnluops could  get such u griinl   why could uotlluiy?  They should have just as strong a claim  its these places.  ��������� Mr. Jii I pa I rick did not see why they  fihmild not lliive a hospital here as well  as in Golden or Kainluops, There was  no ic;i3on why Revelstoke should not  receive as much as.-iatance from the  governincnt (owanls thi-J object as  jilaces like K.-iniloopd or Golden.

She called one day at a Chinese  laundry where she had left a shirt  waist, but it could not be found, as  there-was no entry in the book of hiero-  gl.iphs corresponding to her pink slip.  After a half hour's search the Chinaman found the enlry. A mistake bad  b6en made, so the entry was crossed  out and a new set of hieroglyphs in  tiny characters placed below. She was  'told that the'waist would be laundered  'immediately,' and she could get it the  next day.  The next day the ycung woman called for it, accompanied by three other  "young women. At the seashore the excitement of a visit to Ihe Chinese laundry is not to be despised.
