"Cariboo," said a well known mining
man, speaking of that part of the district near Bakerville, (o the A Micro It
Journal, "is on the eve of a big revival
In mining " There Is ample warrant for
the statement in considering what hai
been accomplished duting llie last few
months. It is worthy of notice that the
gratifying results aie inaiuly due to the
smaller hydraulic and drifting mines.
The big nud rtakings such ns Slough
creek, Cariboo Goldfields and I.iinl's
mine on Willow rivei have ml.led nothing to the production ol Cariboo this
year. I'he returns came principally
from Hums creek, the Low Q-ton claim
on Lightning, ihe Thistle gold mine,
tins l.mints' Dragon creek mine, W. C,
Fry "ii llardscrabble, Flyno Dos. ou
Mosqueto creek, the Sin Juan, Low hee,
First of May, Stcut's Gulch, and other
mines woratng ou a small scale.
The latest reports from the Horseflj
dUtrict give three leet of snow on the
ground, and numbers nl men already on

Alter a Senator,
i The Knslo board of trade has adopted
the following resolution relative lo representation in the senate:
Whereas the province of British Co-
lunibia is represented in the parliament
1 of Canada by six members ot the bouse
! of commons and three senators; and
whereas Ihe population of Kootenay
! and Yale, shown by the recent census, is
. about one-third of the population ol the
1 whole province, nnd of the nine member! of both commons and senate only
! one is resident iu the southern interior of
British Columbia where the business in
terests are diverse   from those ol every
other part of Canada.
Be it resolved thnt this board respectfully submits that in the event of a vacancy occurring in the senate representation of British Columbia, such vacancy
should, as a matter of fair representation
by population nml interest, be filled by
calling to the senate a resilient of this
mining district, familiar with its requirements. _„_____^__
Crows Neat Southern.
Fernie Free Press; Latest ndviees
from llie Crows Nest Southern say that
11 >nstmi'in>n is making good progress.
Grading is almost finished on tbe portion of tbe tine from Jennings north to
the international boundary line, and
tracklaying will shortly be commenced.
North ol the boundary line there has
been some delay, occasioned principally
by reason of difficulties experienced In
getting the permission of tbt government for right of way, etc. Now, however, comfortable camps have been erected and work is making gootl progress.
It will take six months to finish the
road on tbis side of tbe line. Operations will be carried on all win er, as
there will be but little snow or frost to
interfere. The contractors claim that it
ia difficult to secure enough men. They
say that tbey are paying fair wages,
have comfortable bunk houses fur the
accommodatiou of the men and that the
food is plentiful and of gootl quality.
Owing to the alien labor law men cannot be brought from Spokane and other
cities to the south of the line, and on
the other hand it costs too tnucbjto bring
workmen from eastern Canada.
Musical Recital.
The arrangements for the musical recital to be given on Friday evening by
Miss Llllld at Wentworth hall hnve been
completed, and it promises to be an
event of unusual interest, Other well
known local singers will participate in
the entertainment) and the program will
he one of the best ever presented to an
audience in the Kooteuays, The recital
will present an opportunity for tbe lovers of music to indulge in an evening
of enjoyment, as ever/ effort is being
made to insure au artistic success. The
seats are now on sale at R. I*. BeattieO
drug store, and it wou'd be well for the
people to lose no time if tbey desire a
good choice of seats, as the tickets nre
selling rapidly.
Candi-lutta In the Field.
It is evident that several people in
South F.ast Kootenay are desirous o'.
sacrificing themselves on the altar of
politics lor the benefit ofthe people ol
this district. It is rumored that Fernie
will put a man In tbe field, or rather Ihe
man will drop into tht arena without
warning, ami announce himself ready
to meet all corners. T.is man, it is understood, is looking for strong newspaper support in a certain direction.
Furtherniorei although such things ate
not supposed to take place, it is said
that he has some money, and would be
willing to part with quite a chunk lor
the purpose of representing South Ball
Kootenay at Victoria. Of course the
fact that J C. Orcwery's iinnie has been
presented is pretly generally known, but

We regret to  announce  the death of
William   I. Tompkins,   late   teacher of
nn* Fort Steele public school, at L mil
vllle.   Kentucky,   where   lie   went foi a
change of climate. Previous to his leav-
i ig for Kenui:ky  Mr. Tompkins was at
Die Fort Steele  hospital   where he was
iretully  attended   by   Dr,   Itrodlc and
s'urse Knih. and during his stay there
ippjreutly      was      rapidly      Improv-
ng.    Much   against   the   wishes of  his
medical attendant he decided to make
n effort to go  to   milder dim tie, and
n h's way was obliged to rest at Parole
for a week where be was u ider th* care
it Cirsan    Shortly after his arrl -
t Louisville hedled, and ii lath .ughi
ny his  ft lends lint  the Dip there wa
oo  trying   on his  weak  constitution.
Mr. Tompkins was born near Oration,
intarlo, and began life as a newspaper
eporter.    He did work on a few of ll e
papers  In Ontario, prliclpally on the
Trenton Courier and the Telegram, To
rontOi     Before  coming   to British Columbia, he   taught   in   several   of the
schools of Ontario,     ilis -first teaching
experience in the Province  was in the
I'raser valley,    lie took charge of the
Fort Steele  public  school as   principal
about two years ago and proved himself
faithful and painstaking.     His death is
universally regretted,   lie was comparatively a young man ol about .11 years
of age.    He   was  married   and his wife
left for Ontario a few months ago to
visit midlives.
