President   Slijiughnessy's   Visit
to Fernie.
-Lasr Saturday at,2:15 p.m. the special
train bearing Sir .Thomas Shaughnessey
aiid other ofiiciaLs of the C. P.'.R. arrived in Fernie .on. their  regular, inspection trip over the Great -system.   There

Win.   Whyte,^lstl vice-pros., W.   D.
Mathews, ItA.B. Angus, C. It. llosmer,
Senator  Forget' and   Mr.   Redmond-
The  party ■ remained   at   llio station
about   thirty   minutes,.during which
time a committee fi on> the Fernie Board
of Trade consisting of President A. II.
Cree;   Vice-pres., ,W".   W.  Tattle;   F.
Stork,   Dr.   Iliggins and D, Y.  Mott,
waited ' upoii  them   and  presented to
President   Shanghnessoy  a   preamble
and resolutions passu'l by tho council
of the bi.nrd aiid'endor-W by tho city
council asking for tlie construction of
a more commodious'statioii building for
this plnco.   They- pointed out that the
present quarters erected when the ro.-u^
was lirst'built bad-been- outgrown' and
is inadequate for tho greatly increased
business  at  this   place:'   Sir Thomas
replying paid that the matter was in the
hands ofs Mr.. Whyte Mind  he   had no
doubt that tlmt gentleman would dq_all
he could-to .meet  the - request of the
committee  and the. people of Fernie,
but, ho"added, iii rather a jocular vein
of 'course, thafthe'.C. P.'R. had lost a
lot of business at 'this   point from the
fact tbat a  very .large  portion of the
coal and coke that had formerly  been
tranapoited  by his'company was now
being hauled over the G. N".     In   consequence, of. this loss  of .haulage his
company  bad   laid off- twelve   train
crews   between   Fernie   and Nelson.
One of the committee called his attention to the fact that as a iesult of tho
change of the'smeltiiig by the Le'Rii
mines* from Northport  to Trail there
would  be   brought back to his line a
Urge portion of-this'lost tonnage.    Sir
Thomas  assured  tho  committee that
these matters would.not enter into tho
consideration , of.the" station   building
and aftor  a 'pleasant; interchange of
good   wishes  the ■<party  board*d   the

it dealB exhaustively with religious
subjects, it can scarcely bo regarded as
the moutbp'eeeof ihe churches.11
- The above from tho Nelson Econo*
mist sets forth some of tho advantages
of having tbo Claim lying about, but
there are disadvantages as well.
We are endeavoring to keep from the
insurance agents, the. fact that we have
a sample of thin combustible bundle of

Tho rate charged for insurance is
already pretty high anil wo fear that a
knowledge of such inflammable inafei i 1

There nre fish stories and .fish

telegraphic bit ot news in the sporting columns ol the Chicago Journ.il
is almost worthy of belief:
The dispatch says that J. S.Graves

abiiuta'peck ot anqlo worms and
grubs over an area of thin ice on a
lake nonr his farm. Tho fisi\came to
tlio surface, saw tho bait through the
transparent ice, held their noses to
the bottom ot the sheet of ice until
they were frozen solid, and the, next
day Graves cut the ice. Now, says
the dispatch, lie has over a ton of 41sh

The World's Whiskers
The most remarkable whisker
novelty, tbe barber said, is to .be
found in France. Frenchmen for the
last six months, have been wearing
Ik-x beards. A box beard is as
square as a piece of carpentry) nine
inches long, five inches wide, two
inches deep; every corner sharp and
true, and all the surfaces, upper and,
under and side, smoothed as il with 11
plane, -
The box beard is neat and queer.
It was introduced by the King of Bel-
gia/i. ~ -*.
The English have a new mustache
the buttei fly. Tlie butterfly is ' not.
more than two inches long. If is Inst
which ends turning upwards and
inward. It has been adopted by all
she young army officers, The king
has stamped it with his approval.
Ynu will h-irdly b.eliove it, but- in
Italy the pat*ch is being worn. Tbe
IfilIan has his eluV shaved smooth
except lor a tiny circular i*utch, the
size ct a shirt stud, and in this patch
he wears a little tuft a half ineh long.
It is as though the Italian had a mole
there, but the patch is just his coquetry. ,
Here in America smooth faces,,
or beards or mustaches in the more
simple, classio'slylcs continue. The
mon of America would be ashamed
to wear the box, the buttnfly or the
patch.  .
In nnother column we publish a letter from Enquirer. The subject dealt
with by him' is otte which the City
Council should certainly take up al
onee. Tbe streets have been left in n
horrible stale as enquirer puts it. Wc
draw the nltenlion of lhe City .Counpil
to tbp matter, in tbe meantime, pending
a fair chance for I hem to act wc refrain from criticism.

"One "editor," a gentleman who presides over the destinies of the Cranbrook Herald, and who poses as an independent in politics and never loses
and opportunity for a sly hit at the
Conservatives, literary used- up his
slock of unpleasant adjectives in commenting on ■ the article in question.
" Wc are afraid lhat* thc ."Old Man"
as Jie calls himself, is Jittle better than
an l-o!d humbug."
The above' from "The "Week" of
Victoriu is rather,,hard on tbe "Old
Man" of the Herald. We must join
the "Old Man" in protesting that the
government does not spend- enough of
the revenues obtained from, this corner ol llie province in improving the
existing roads 'and in malting new
ones * •.
We have just been interviewing one
of thc government oflicials closly connected with the expenditure of the
monies-appropriated for use in the Fernie and Cranbrook districts and have
learned that up "to date about $1000
have been expended out of the $6000
whicli was appropriated for the Ferhii-
district and about $500 out ofthe 850110
appropriated for'the Cranbrook district
has been applied' for improving nhe
roads of that district. This money is
available after the ist of July and can
be expended at any time between that
il ate" iiifd'tiTeTsrorj'uiy"! -5o6~ '
The amount set aside for  roads' and
* * o    " ' ' t       1     .
bridges in,these, .two districts is, re-
diculously small whin compared with
the amount of revenue derived from
the same territory. The total revenue
drawn from this pan of the country in
the same period will appoxinmle  §250,
The revenue from the Crow's Nesl
Pass Coal Co. alone will amount to
$80,000 which added to the timber
(Jut's, royalties, license fees and other
sources of revenue will probably exceed
the quarter million mark:
That out of Ihis"vast sum only $11,^
000 .should come back to* Ihis part of
the province is an absurdity which
ciutld be expected only from a government that resorts' to issuing bogus
licenses to people purporting to give
them Ihe right to explore and develop
coal and oil claims in llie same, districts
but which'in reality confer only the
privilege of going into court to lipjit
for that Vihich tho government has
already taken llieir money.
The decision ofthe courl in a „ case
arising uut of such thimblerigging by
lhe Commif.'-'ionc-r of Lands and Works
in which the judge hiates tli.il such
"flicinl can nut is-,ue two licenses lo the
Hume puree) of Innd, pl-ices the government In rntlier ft peculiar position and
renders it possible that a considerable
portion of Ihe monies wrongfully obtained by is.sulng licenses to Tom, Dick
iiml Hurry will hnve to he refunded,
thus reducing the amount of available
cash at Iliu disposal of llm government,
Add to this llm developments in lhe
Iluslani mill case which indiculo that
revenues that tire justly due und collect-
nhli) hnve been allowed In run for years
in iirrear«, nml the "Old Man" of lhe
Herald might ho able to discover Ihut
political favoritism U nol the only  fici*
or which enters  into   the   problem   of
getting the paltry 5 per cent.of the  revenues derived from South East ^Kootenay paid bacjt in the shape o.f-a  few
shovels full of dirt and a few additional
poles laid - down on' existingroads and
bridges..   It is not necessary to impugn
the motives which actuate the government in pursuing such a senseless course
in regard Urthe development of this part
of the province..   If the expenditure   of
the   road money   is governed  as   the
"Old Man" seems lo believe,-by'political motives then the supporters of such
government should see to  it   at   once,
and have this part of the program placed in tlie hands of some one who has a.
little broader view of  political   expediences than seems to   be ' po.sses.sed. by
lhe present manipulator of tluit kind of
work. "   The  elephantine   end  of lhe'
government menagerie which has been
at considerable trouble lately in its .endeavor lb explain the whys and wherefores of the failure to collect thc revenues due from, a certain   milling  firm,
might go   further   and   enlighten 'the
public   concerning "the   antics   of   the
monkey end of the show in its dealings
willi South East Kootenay both in   the
going of the revenues   i\otl in tlie coming of the "same. '•"> ' '
- How men  of acknowledged   ability
can remain in, and be a part of, an ad
ministration which shows such lamentable want of ability, viewed either from
lhe   point    of political   expediency or
from the broader and higher standpoint
of statesmanship, is a  problem   whicli
seems lo be troubling   more  than  one
man of ability   and   understanding   in
this province. >

At the Whistleivexhibition in London
said a tourist, I had a cljat with Joseph Pennell, the well known artist.
Pennell bad spent his boyhood' in Ger-
mantown with me, and so wc talked of
our old Germantown friends. We
talked of a boy who hii'd bccome'an ar-
tisl-and married a'rich woman.
Pennell said this chap was not altogether happy. He-said he' would tell
me a story about him lhat \i ould reveal
sublly, in a Henry James manner,, the
cause of his unhappioess.
