A.'desire '  ' the. public to know of the move-' '  ' .merit for the erection of a modern  ** . ' .  -  building suitable for carrying on  the various kinds of _work con-  '������ducted by,.such institutions all  over the world, a work that combines (pleasure and profit * for  young men and boys.*'-  Already Jen thousand 'dollars      ,.    , ,  has been subscribed by the railroad and city men.  These subscriptions have not been given in large  amounts by a few men, but they have come from  a large number of the wage earners. Their payments arc made to extend over twelve months, so  as to give every' dollar they could, and many  have given at a -sacrifice for the good of their  fellowmen.  The Railway Company have responded, too,  in the gift of a very suitable.site, consisting of six  lots ��������� 150x100 feet on the corner of First Street  and McArthur Avenue. '  When such a building is erected il will ensure the permanency and success of a work for  young men in this city. It will express in enduring form the desire of the community to encourage and assist its young' men, and will  dedicate to the youth when its donors are gone  the regard Revelstoke bears for its young manhood.  < ������i  The  need  for such an Association building  we all recognize, with   no   place of recreation at  present in the city  for  young  men   to go and  ALD/ McLEOD,  Director, Y. M. CI A.  spend their  leisure  lime.     The  Association'building will provide  "a place to go where'there' is  a  gymnasium and games of bowling!'  chess and checkers; where baths ���������  "and a swimming pool areat their.'.'  disposal; where there-is*--" n up-to-  \latq reading room, and library, a.'  cosy  parlor, a night',school,  in  fact a home of a clean, social and  .  recreative nature provided   at  a  small cost. , ,/ ,  In adopting a plan for such a  building the idea is to have a  plain exterior, but a well ap-  , '- pointed and attractive interior.  This, we believe, has been carried out in'the plans  of the proposed building. The building will be of  wood, and will with the equipment when completed  cost between 15,000 and 1S.000 dollars.  AN APPEAL.  To You.ng MnN,���������To help themselves and  their fellowmen hy contributing what they can.  We prefer large numbers of small sums from  young men to small numbers of large sums from  business men. Only when we invest in anything  are we really interested in it.  To Business Mkn,���������Who have a pride in the  public welfare" of 'the  City, and  in its  public '  buildings, we would   like to have the Association  building compare  favorably  with  other  public  buildings of the city. ,  . .

The mineral industry of British  Columbia has never had a better  chance than it has today. ' The  priceB of the metals are good all-  round. Silver keeps over the 60  cent mark, lead last week touched  the ]ii*-h point of i'i4.10s. in London,' zinc is high arid in ' great demand, and electrolytic copper commands around 16,cents. These  prices afford excellent opportunities  for making money by the development of the mineral .industry and  'as usual American investors are  coming -in' to 'take up what Canadians have neglected.  'THE EXHIBITION.    ' .  Revelstoke was the most stronglv  represented city1 in the interior on  the. visitors list of the Dominion  Exhibition, and all who saw the  exhibition were well pleased with  it._ Mayor Keary, wlio was man-  ager'of it, is congratulated on all,  hands.on the excellent manner in  which-he conducted it in  tlic  face  'J ���������  of many difficulties," one of .tlie  worst of which-was the unfavorable  weather. Mr. Keary declares that  was the one thing he wished ho  could control.

FOREST CONSERVATION.  Sir Wilfred Laurier has gendered  great service' to the Canadian  people, but none of more importance than tliat he has now' taken  in hand. We refer,to forest conservation which the Premier,has  taken'lip with his usual vigor, and  has convened an. assembly at  Ottawa^ on 10th, 11th, 12th' of  January next to consider the best  means of dealing with the question.  Sir Wilfred appreciates the value  of tlie forest wealth of Canada, and  the effects of forests in preserving  tho.source of water power, equality  of climate,-and provision for"'irrigation. Attention to forestry is  'one of the most important duties  of the government as there are few  industries thatrare a greater source  of wealth, employment and- commercial prosperity than the lumber  industry.     '  MINING, LUMBERING' AND  THE TARIFF. '  One feature of the tariff commission inquiry hasr our hearty  sympathy and that is the, demand  of mine operators ' for , reduced  duties on mine supplies that have  to be imported. Hitherto the  mineral .industry has been heavily  handicapped by the high prices on  supplies necessitated by the heavy  'duties imposed. The same,thing  applies to the lumber industry,  which is soaked by excessive duties  on much of the macl inery and mill  supplies which must be imported.  We don't think there is likelihood  of the tariff commission recommending a duty on rough lumber  or of such a duty being passed  though the lumber .interests are  entitled Ho that consideration in  the face of the imposts on the  industry. In any case it seems  likely the. American government  will take the fluty off lumber imported to the States and if they do  there are many 'lumbermen in  Canada, who would rather have  that than a' duty on imports to  this side; as there is no 'doubt the  time is not far distant when the  American market 'will' be as im  portant to the-],lumber interests of  British Columbia -as is the Northwest market at the1 prescnt^time  Besides, 'the lumber" industry lias  every promise of being on ,"a better  basis', than *ever before, with a  rapidly growing market, husbanding of-raw material and consequent  increase of price.  SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1905  TELEPHONE' FACILITIES.  It   is- now.  time,- the-. C.  P. R.  telegraphs   put   their  commercial  officeiin-the business portion of the  city just as it is in  other  cities of  importance.     The, public  of   this  city have been,put to much incon-  venience'fo'r-vearsiby the telegraph  office being away from the business  centre and it is unfair to this .city  that the  existing, state  of. things  should be allowed 'to continue.     A  telegraph company should,, have as  much consideration'for tlie public  convenience as for cutting expenses,  oiuthe.-telegraph loses  much  of'its  value.    Now that the chief oflicials  of.ithe C..P. JR. Telegraphs are visiting this.province it*is to' be  hoped  theyjvill.arrange.for the necessary  change here.  ANOTHER'POINT GAINED.-  The   inauguration; .of   the   fast  service between the coast and South  KooteDay. points   emphasises   the  importance   of   Revelstoke   as'   a  transportation   point.     Vear.-' ago  railway   men* said   if- ihe Coast-  Kooienay road were built the  only  way.the.C.  P. R.  could' meet   it  would be   to   recognise   Revelstoke  as the Spokane of  British  Columbia and u.-e this city a.--   the' point  from which to meet it.  This means  the C. P. R. will yet have to extend  to Revelstoke the freight privileges  formorlv enjoyed by  this   oi ty,  so  that it   may   become the distributing and manufacturing centre   for  the interior of British Columbia.  FRENZIED FINANCE.   ' .  -_ The life insurance scandals disclosed    in   New   York are 'a disgrace to the financial world.     It is  a shocking thing that  the  savings  ,of the people should be bartered in  political corruption, gross personal  extravagance of -officials, and 'the  enormous, salaries ,-of .-officers  and  their families.    Canada is as much  interested   as   the "States  in this  matter   as   many' millions  of insurance   in   the   Equitable,   New  York   Life  and  Mutual  Life  are  held in.Canada, and it is up to the  Canadian  government  to see  the  interests of the policv  holders  in  this country are properly protected  and compensation   made   for any  spoliation    their    interests     have  suffered before they are allowed to  do  further   business.       If  T.- \V.  Lawson had done nothing more but  bring about   these   investigations  and disclosures he has rendered   a  service  for  which  he deserves the  thanks of the people of thecivilised  world.     It  would be well if an in-  vestigation   were   made   into  life  insurance matters on this side the  line, so   that  the  public  may   be  assured   a   similarly   rotten . condition of things does not exist here,  or,   if  it  does,  that  it should be  exposed,   and   the   c-ire   applied.  State life insurance   will  probably  eventually result in the States and  Canada.  TRANSPORTATION  PROBLI/JM,  Sir Wilfred Laurier hit the   key-  FIRE-ARMS.  The extent   to   which    firearms  have  been   used  in' scraps of late  warrants the enquiry as to what is  to be done to reduce the evil ?     Is  a license system going to remedy it  and'if so should it be adopted ?   A  Grand Jury in  a  neighboring city  advocated raising the limit of  age  within   which   firearms   are   prohibited  from  14-to  17 years, but  that,, would,  scarcely   have much  effect.     We   think  an.annual gun  license should at all events be imposed   on   larger   firearms.-   as   a  means of lessening the evil and ,the  use of concealed firearms should be  severely, puniBhednwhen discovered.  note of   the   requirement-)  of   the  wot on the  head   when   be  sta'-'d  the other day that .what  tlie   west  wants is cheaper transportation.  It  is   outrageous    that   a    city   like  Revelstoke,   for   instance,   should  have to    pay   double   tho   rates of  Vancouver, with   -100   miles   more  haul.     Hon. W. S. Fielding, when  in   Revelstoke,    referred    lo   this  phase of the transportation question  and said for some time   bo   had in  view   legislation   limiting   freight  rates to an amount no greater than  the   haul  to  the  furthest point on  the   division.      This   is   common  sense and if it were put into  effect  Revelstoke- for  instance  would be  on the same footing as   Vancouver  and   here  would  grow  up a commercial city  rivalling* Vancouver  in its facilities for  manufacturing  and merchandising,  THE BAND  Receives High.

The Cranbrook Herald says :  "Prices for some time past have  been knocked into a cocked hat. Tho  prices that have prevailed would not  warrant any manufacturer to sacrifice  his limits. There havo been several  causes for this. The only market  British Columbia has is the prairie,  and until the crop question was settled  the prairie * was an nhknown proposition. .. Retailers were: not.,buying  any more'than they could" possibly  help, and "were -pounding down-the  prices .to the lowest ebb., This would  have'righted Itself had not it been for  a few* manufacturers who were compelled to sell'as they needed the cash  Their"reductions" went a'-long , way.to  demoralize the market'and the resulting conditions made it,,hard for the  retailer as'well -as for the manufacturer. At the present time prices are  rapidly going up ou' the--other side,  so 'the danger , of ' lumber from" the  United States -flooding the .prairie is  being gradually lessened by' this fact.  rVgaiu.: the. big , crop ( all over the  prairie country means that there'-will  be an immense' amount of ��������� building.  The stocks of the retailers are low and  they must replenish. This combination of circumstances gives a brighter  hue to the-future for. the lumbermen.  Were this not the case only those who  are pressed" so hard by"pending obligations as to make it necessary to sell  to raise cash, would -think of sawing  or selling the stock' on hand. A  change must -.come to give the relief  that is necessary to make the business  return sufficient - to warrant the investment of capital,and brains to keep,  things moving the coming six months  and-', that * change must be in the  nature* of an increase in prices that  will'give the lumberman a chance to  get a run for his money. The retailer  on the prairie has been making from  $7' to $10 a thousand, while the manufacturer, without enough margin to  keep the' banks from counting the  sawlogs ou hand every thirty days, has  been held up. as a grasping monopolist rolling in wealth."  .

bill tho route of travel between Vancouver and jNelson will co radically
altered. Today in 'order to get to
Nelson from the count, or from tho
coast to Nelson,, tiiivelors proceed via
tho Arrow lakes' and Hobson. After
November 1st Kobson will bo sidetracked altogether and I he route, in
and out of Molson will bo via Nakusp,

Leaving Nelson the, C. P. 'II.'' route

��� In older to reduce its running time
between the coast and Nelson, tho C.
P. IL was forced to abolish1 the trip
up (.lio Arrow Lakus.. While on the
run to Nelson  the   navigation   of  the
Arrow Lakes presented no  clilliciiltics
i i
it is impossible on the run 'from Nelson to the coast to'iuii up the lnkte
from Robson'lo Arrowhead during Iho
night without having .to loco .many
hours'time at the Narrows just bo-
low Nakusp. ' HoatS'leaving Rob'son

Revelstoke has Attractions that
.Beat Them All. ' ,,���
Two weeks ago ���an' English tourist,
Jl. Martin, arrived in Revelstoke 'and
was so taken with his visit here that
he declared Revelstoke was the most
convenient, comfortable* and attractive
tourist, centre on the C. P. It. lino.
Among ' other pastimes he wont out
for a hunting trip on the Jordan with
J). Macintosh and hnd the time of his
life, killing the biggest silver.-tip bear
which 'Mr.- Macintosh' says has yet
been got in this part of- tho 'country,
and this within four mile.s of the city
of Revelstoke. ' Mr. Macintosh says
thoy saw another bear about as large
but it got away. '     / -
The fur was in splendid shape and
Mr. Martin had'it dressed and took it
back with him to have mounted'nml
show his Fnglish friends his trophy of
his trip to Revelstoke.
���Mr. Martin expresses the opinion
then- was no place the world over'
where such excellent hunting, 'fishing
and nioiintaiiicoi'ing could bo had
with so little trouble as in the vicinity
of Kovolstokc. J Io expressed surprise
that the attractions 'of Revelstoke
wore omitted from the O. I'. R. guidebooks and other tourist literature.'
