EDITORIAL NOTES.
Tin: lalesl brilliant idea of the Provincial government—i.o create a new
county out of I he southern portions of
the counties of Kootenay and Yale-
seems nol to have attracted the attention ils Importance merits in either of
the districts nlfcolcil. The real object
und practical elicit nf Ibis measure
Would be lo place llu- Kellle river
disirici iu Kootenny instead of Yule,
It septus strange, such being the cuse,
Hint thi' residents of 'Kellle river were
never cm,suited ns lo theii* opinions
und ideas in the mutter cither liy Ihe
ulloiiii-y general nr by Ml'.]Graham
M. P. P., iln-ii- represenlallve, us n

Dewdney trull which is Impassable
dill-lug six in nitlis in Ilm year. This
stale iif affairs will lasl until n railway
• is luiijl between Ketlle rivet nud Kootenay, anil for Ibis reason, if fur no
oilier, il is lo be hoped llnil .iio.niilei-iii
council will In* passed Jo-ruling any
new coitnly on.lh" llnesiutended, until
such direct, connection is established,
What is needed for .south Yale is a
separate governtuenl agency nml
separate represenliitiun iu the pen*
vmcial legislnl ure, Tu bulb of these
Koulh Y/ileis entitled nnd Hie govern,
uieub should be well n warn of il, Fewer
orders in (-(uiiicil (such as the one proposed) and more'cnininnu souse would
tend to raise Ihe goveriiinenl in llle
estiuialioii of llie people of this section
of tlie interior.
Re arrangements of  counties is
(as fnr iis llie yinterior of liiilish
('obunliia goes)'n ni.itIer uf very secondary iinpiirliince in cniupai'ison with
the pis-ing of a ra distribution bill
which will give I lie interior uti equitable
represent.ition iu the legislature, No

uuy kind slibuld prevent) tbe milling
population nf ilu. Interior (who are
making Brilish Colin,,bin what she is)
from obtaining llieir fair 1-igbls, before
lhe nexl provincial elecl ion, all sections

gel her on lllis issue.
 «-	
Now Hull llie.ne.v land act is law il.
wiil be interest iug lo nolo whether
sectiun III will be pul inlo force or not,
It Is very eummunly staled that it is
uneonslltutloillll .-uul never wns intended lu be pul it, praclice, If the
legislnl,ire were sliil sitting il. would
lle pertinent to enquire from the chief
commissioner a number of questions
iu cnnncclioils therewith such as :
"Huve no crown grants been already
grunted I'm- hinds llle right In whicli
wns acquired since 17lb of April 1890,
nnd, if so, hns the provision ns In re*
conveying toy>'ti hits in the crnwn been
always inserted:' "What consl It tiles
n town lot '<" "Is an acre block or n
hull'acre block a town lot ?" "Hoes I be
tut apply lo subdivisions of mineral
cliiiins?" etc. elc. Uniler the present
net, ns it slmuls, a man might preempt n piece of hind, Improve it, pny
tuxes on il foryeuis, uud when owing
to the naHii-.il growlb in population of
the surrounding llislricl ho might be

goveriiinenl would bine the right lo
