Air. Robertson has Leon a true citi/.eu of Golden in every sense of the term, and  wo venture,to say he will prove equally  true to tho interests of tho'city he has  chosen for his future home both in  matters oN-usiness and sport, anil as  was predicted by one of the speakers at  the banquet,'we sincerely hope that  ���������'Billy" will again "wend his, w������v back'  to the beautiful environments' of our  growingfltown. .'

It was a great pleasure indeed,to have  such men in   the  ollice.    'Mr.   Jones  dwelt at length upon  the  usefulness  of the guest and, expressed, the, hope,  which   he   thought, was  the  wish, of  everyone, that Air; Robertson's efforts  would . be   crowned 'with' "success ' no  matter what line of business   lie  took  up,1 and also referred to  his desire  to  see the day,  which  was  not  far off,  when Golden  would  become of such  dimensions as to induce   Air. .Robert1  son to return   and-- go   into  business  here.    He then called upon 'Air.  Car-  lin to propose the toast, ."Our Guest,"  which that gentleman 'did in his usual  good-natured -style* and  in  a,few remarks told of thf serious  loss  to the  company   through  the   departuie of  Air.

The management is still following out the exhaustive mill tests of the oie contained  in the various workings in the mine,  which were introduced last February,  and the results obtained arc such that  it is now almost a certainty that the  mill plant will be enlarged.

it must have'tho sympathy and
support of the citizens generally. A
committee .should 'be 'organised, get
in touch with tlie C. P. It. on Lhe
matter, and a contract woulrlprob-
ably be let at an early date for a
suitable building for the purpose,
costing several thousand dollars���
a building that would be ornamental as well as useful to the city.
The policy of the company is to
establish 'these institutions ��� at
divisional points as forming a desirable rendezvous for trie young
men in the company's service,
where the}- can have a well equipped gymnasium for physical exercise, a*reading room, lecture hall,
and educational classes and lectures.
This is a work in whichfthe citizens
of Revelstoke should be to the
acquire the knowledge required to
pass a graduate examination as
wen as the man who takes'- nn
intra-mural course. Indeed, the
self taught man is a better student
in'every sense, than lie who absorbs
his knowledge direct from university professors. We hope that
future institutes will not treat im-
portiiiH questions in a similar way
again and we trust Alr.'Kultomwill
renew his motion al next institute,
by which time'members will' have
had lime to consider the matter
and,Jet lib hope, will know next
time better than to turn down such
a valuable adjunct and incentive

The   British    government    has
made a departure that  might  well
be followed   by   Canada in taking
steps to prohibit   the  immigration
of undesirable citizens. ' Wo consider the practice adopted of scouring the slums of Europe  for immigration   is   the 'most'suicidal,that
any government can  adopt. ' The
immigration policy of the country
should 'be .revised ' in   this respect.
Jn fact  a'"certificate  of character
and   mental  and   physical   fitness

are growing up  who should  have
the preference in the occupancy of
the unsettled  lands of  the dominion.' .Following out the same idea,
British Columbia should   have the
right to,' prevent  the immigration

Orientals, whose habits  and manners of living are foreign  to those
of our own people, and we consider
the  Dominion  government is acting wrongly in disallowing bills to
regulate   this   immigration*   after
they  have passed  the , provincial
'legislature.      The    people  of the
province and the legislators know
what*is "for,,- their   own good ten

parliament with  a  large   eastern
majority     sitting     at      Ottawa.
Easterners are without knowledge
of the effects of such legislation on
the interests of the province.    The
province should stand'to  its guns
in  this matter, which  is of such
national importance that  Liberals
and Conservatives should he found
fighting shoulder  to  shoulder for
their rights in this respect.

^ PARTY TIES.      ' ,   -
The .ties' that bind electors to
party are fortunately becoming
weaker and. the tendency of the
voters is to regard the acts of legislators and ministers rather than
the allegiaance to'party. This is
as it should be. There is good and
bad in all parties and governments
and the sooner the people recogni��e
thatj and support by their votes
only those whose administration
and policy best makes for progress
and purity of government, the
better will it be for the country.    ���
The manner in   which  the  pro-
, vincial government is   levying the
tax on commercial travellers  is  a
'source of bitter  complaint in consequence  of  the   injustice shown.
Now the tax is imposed  it  should
be levied on each and every traveller   from -outside  points  without
fear or favor.     But it is not.    One
man is made to * pay - and  another
is allowed to go free.    Many travellers have come into Revelstoke- of
late who have not  been  called  on
to pay a cent of the tax,  while the
men who have  been   compelled  to]
pay   at    other   points    complain I
bitterly of this one-sided manner of
levying    it.        Greater    vigilance
should  be exercised   by   the  provincial authorities, and-every man
who is liable should  be  compelled
to pay it.
Another thing of which local
business houses have legitimate
cause of complaint is the fact that
a traveller comes into the city and
if a merchant won't handle his
goods partially or exclusively he
starts taking retail orders. Sometimes he takes such orders anyway.
That is contrary to the city bylaw
but no steps are ever taken to deal
with such offenders. Local houses
have to pay the taxes of the city
and should have the support of the
city authorities in carrying out n
bylaw which, after all, is a just
protection to our own people.

\ While we* recognise ��� the -good
work done by the Teacher's Institute
at their, meeting here we were
much disappointed atcthe pedantic
attitude -taken l toward' one of the
most valuable resolutions presented
to the meeting. It was mo veil by
C. Fulton, seconded by R^ N. Mc-
Tavish: ���    ,
I. "Whereas there is no university
in B. C, and seeing that incieasing
the number of educated men will
greatly, tend to obtaining a university
in the near future;
II. -Whereas there are many, men
in the Province, both in the teaching
profession and out of it, who, though
desirous of higher scholarship, have
neither the time nor the mean.-, of
attending a university;
1IJ.< Whereas the student-teacher
is likely to Ue the most enthusiastic,
tbe most efficient teacher;
IV. Whereas the London University offers a wider,' a more comprehensive extra mural course than any
other university���its hoard of examiners including many of the most
eminent scholais in England:
V. Whereas the appointment of a
London examiner in the older provinces lias done much to stimulate
higher education, and seeing that such
appointment costs nothing,
Be, it hereby lesolved, that this
institute respectfully petition the
Department of Education to takesuch
steps as shall lend to the appointment
of an examiner of the London University for this province.''
Anyone who is acquainted .with
the work of the London University
would   recognise   that    this   gre.U
educational institution  is' doing a
unique work throughout the British
Empire.      It   provides   a    means
whereby students who  are   unable
to take an intra-mural course can
study at their own homes, undergo
these examinations of the university
and acquire its degrees.     And   the
degrees   of  the   University of Uon-
don are amongst the   highest educational conferments of the empire.
Yet   this   resolution    was   turned
down  by   the    Institute.      Why'-
Several   members   voting did   not,
we venture to say, know thenr-clvc-
while other.-: who had   hern able to
take   an    intra-mural   course and
obtain degrees  were   too   pedantic
to support a better  opportunity being   given   of     others     acquiring
similar    educational   attainments.
A representative of the   Mak,  was
at a point in the room whore ho
could not help hearing one of the
senior members of the Institute,
and a man who should have known
better, urge lady members to got
up and vote against the resolution.
They protested they did not know
what they wore asked to vote for,
but voted all tbe same. That was
an unpardonable feature of an
otherwise well-conducted educational assembly. There are many
whose,condition in life prevents
them taking an intra-mural course
at a university, but who,   by appli-
and ���   determination,    can! Vancouver, B;C.

Revelstoke 'Football  Club journeyed -to Kara loops to play  the second game in the league fixture  for the Martin-trophy, which represents the championship of the Interior.  The game, which was a hotly contested one, resulted in a win for the Revelstoke boys by ono goal to nil. To'ssing  for choice Kamloops won 'and elected  to kick off, with the wind in their  favor"   which, was   blowing   fiercely.  The Revelstoke boys finding it was  almost impossible to curry the ball  against "the''wind played a strictly  defensive game. Occasionally the  forwards would break away and by a  series of short passes curry the ball  down to the K.miloops goal, only to  , have it returned by a long kick. The  back division had plenty to do to keep  the K.unloops boys from scoring and  certainly upheld their reputation at  the conclusion of half- time. The  score was nil, neither -side being able  to score. By this time the wind had  almost died' so that the change of  ends did not help the Revelstoke boys  any. However, when play restarted  the Revelstoke forwards came away  with a rush and almost scored, Pete  Donaldson missing a rather easy shot  at goal. The game became very fast  the ball travelling rapidly from one  end of the Held to the other.  The Kamloops forwards could not  get much combination in their'play  as they were too closely ch- eked by  the Revelstokc half backs, so their  efforts were rather of an individual  nature. On the contrary iho Revelstoke forwards repeatedly broke  through their opposing backs and it  was owing to the grand defence put  up by the Kamloops goal keeper -that  the score was not much larger: It  was conceded by tne Revelstoke players that they had never seen a playci  who could equal the eflorts of the  Kamloops custodian. ALor repealed  ���������efforts to score the ball w s passed to  the outside wing. RoLuitson, who  went away with a rush, and in turn  passed to the centre LeFeaux, who  shot for goal. The goalkeeper Intel to  come out to clear the shot and listed  the ball. Donaldson obtaining  possession ijuickly passed to Allen,  who shot the ball through befoie the  goal keeper could get buck to 'his  position. Atcr this Kamloops redoubled tho efforts to equalize, but  their efforts were in vain. The gnme  was a cleiin exhibition of football, the  referee having little to do in regard to  foul play. The Revelstokc hoys are  pleased with their 7 treatment from  the Kamloops . boys   arid   hope   that  *-N,imo  R.iuk-  >ds  >ds  5 ds Totul  Smith   ..
