On Thursday the 20th inst. the
most important bill ol this session
was brought hotore tbe Provincial
Government for debato for the second
time. It is in substance a change in
th) land policy tu enable the Government to secure funds to curry on the
present liberal system of education.
The Government plea is that: To
carry on tiie present system a very
large sum would be necessary, as ihe
demands upon the Government for expenditures under thu head of education
were increasing at tbe rate of 1,0 per
cent per annum. To raise this sum
they propose to turn the public lauds
of the Province over for public sale,
thut is as much as saying (hut they
lire desirous of throwing the remainder
of the choicest public lauds of the
Province into the maw ol the laud
shark and speculator.
The Government must of course have
money. The whole substance of the
speeches of the Government was that
they could not make both en Is meet,
and this is the only way in which
they could realize a Utile ready cash
tor their present urgent needs.
Ir. appears that the effect of such a
measure will be of no little detriment
to our interests. We have in East
Kooteuay, 1 must confess, no large
amount of land which bus escaped the
grabber, much to our misfortune, and
are we now tc see the remnant snatched from us in such a way that we
shall obtain nothing for them.
It i> certainly to the interest of
East Kootenay to try and prevent the
measure for alienating our public lauds
becoming law.
Iu speaking of this the Columbian
"This last iniquitous proposal of
an Administration that is direct heir
to a black list of legislative infamies
of the sort-infamies which have
-brought the reck ess nud conscience,
less connected series of Administrations, culminating with the present
one, to this lust desperate recourse ot
deliberately proposing to squander the
. reininiiit of the people's heritage which
their predecessors were prevented from
dissipating. The excuse for this outrageous ct'iutompliited betrayal of tlin
people's interests is so thin uud superficial as to he a positive insult to the
public intelligence.
"The glaringly apparent facts of the
case are that the Goi eminent, in
their   criminal   carnival of   extiuvu
that when a settler came to look for a
farm he found that all the good laud
had been taken up, and that he must
pay the speculator a high price fur a
farm or be content tu take iuferior
land, or laud iucouveniontly situated,
eotnpluiiit is not otie of yesterday. It
is a very old one and has been made
against all the laud laws eniurted iu
Province. The present Government
last year Initiated a reform in the
right direction. Its object wus to discourage speculation and io encourage
settlement But it appears that its reform did not go far enough. The old
complaint is still made. We, therefore hope tliut the law which the Government is soon to introduce will effectually put a stop tojspeeuliuion iu
wilderness lund. Anyone who knows
what it is to clear forest laud must be
convinced that the man who redeems
an acre of land from tlie wilderness has
an equitable right to that land. He
lias iu labor, in privation, and in
various kind*, paid a high price for the
land he lias made fit for cultivation.
The Government should, therefore,
give tlie laud to the actual cultivator,
and should reserve it for liii.. uud hiin
alone. It is not fair thut he should
have to pay u high price to u speculator for leave to weave out his life iu
making the unproductive wilderness
fit to contribute to the support of man.
The agricultural laud of 'his Province
should be held by the Government for
the men who will improve it. The
speculator should not be able to get us
much ns a single acre of it. The purchaser should bu required to give u
guarantee that he intends to settle upon it, uud the conditions of purchase
should be such, that if after u reasonable time no improvements are mude
upon the laud, it should revert to the
Government. The new law should be
so framed that it will be impossible
for land-grabbers to evade tlie fullil-
uient of its conditions. If the Government effects the reform we indicate, it
will do the Province a service of inestimable valuo and will deserve the
gratitude of British Columbians of the
present generation and succeeding generations. If tho law is once made
thorough und effective, no succeeding
Government will dure to at tempt io
have it repealed,"
Just as things arelieginuiiig to look
up in the Province of British Columbia
ami it was hoped that the Provincial
Government would render to the mining industry some material aid, tliere
comes a breeze from the ocean which
- if it continues will blast nil our
hopes, and this part of tlie Province
will again fall iuto the chronic state
ot iisphixia which has been coming o���
us now for some time. Anyhow we
di not seem to enre. It appears to
not touch us very closely, or we should
make more attempt to prevent it. Yon
are all sufficiently well acquainted
with the history of the local mining
industry to know that we have been
struggling along now for some time
almost iu a dormant condition and
without any perceptible encouragement from thc ProviiioWl Government
or any one else, and at the present
time Eust Kooieuuy is looked upon
with contempt. The Government has
rendered some assistance in the construction of roads tu particular mines,
giuice and waste, for years past, have r sumo of which roads were then only
'gone through' everything else that j used for the conveyance of the men
they could luy their hands on, and (and tools from the mine to which lhe
are now going to help themselves and roud wus constructed; some of course
their frieuds to the  remainder of  the have  been  of tt beneflolul turn.   But
public lands that are good for anything. Will iho people allow it? It
not I hey had belter speak at once, and
in no unmistakable terms."
On the subject of the land policy the
Colonist iu 1HS- said :
���We are glad to sue that the Govern
the whole mode of procedure savours
tf a want of business management
and in mnny instances the monev ex
pended did more to give us a bad name
than to help the community to develop
the mineral resources, and now we are
held   in   contempt.    This disregard ���
healthier state, this cursed breeze from
.the ocean comes, this 2 per cent on
the assessed gross output.of ull mines.
How is it possible for us to labor un-
jdar such enormities. Just fancy uiiu-
|ing men attempting to raise capital in
England- ui anywhere for a mutter of
that fur the purpose uf carrying on
milling developments under such circumstances. I suppose it is one of
those jocular experiments of the Government, b..t even the Victoria men
think the laud bill is stretched a littlo
too far as the following shows :
. Victoria, Feb. 28, - jU a mass meeting ou Friday night ihu Government
Land Bill wits discussed by Messrs,
Turner, Rithet, Helnicketi, Wulkein,
Kellie, Cotton nnd Aid. Merchant. A
resolution wus passed culling upon thu
Victoria members to insist on ihe
withdrawal of the Bill or vote against
the final reading of the sume. Mr.
Kellio threatened the electors thut if
they cuiried the resolution he would
vote against the British Pacific Railway bill. This threat was itceived
with hisses und Mr. Kellie was forced
to leave the platform.
The following letter from Vancouver
published iu the Province shows pretty
ideally the sentiment at present held
���' All the town seems agog apropos
of tlie British Pacific railway, assessment ol mines.laud and school schemes
of the Provincial Government. Strongly expressed sentiments opposing these
various projects have been voiced by
the City Council, the Nationalist Association, and the Board of Trade, etc.,
and the general feeling amongst private individuals appears to be also antagonistic to the adoption of any of
these propositions, It is indeed high
time Vttiicouverites wake up to the
seriuus financial position of the province, for only when fully cognizant of
the dangers ahead uf I hem can they
judge fairly uf these bills either uow
under discussion or shortly to be
brought befoie the House. Knowledge
is our only safeguard, and if people
will study lhe questions more ulusely
and learn fur themselves what the
passing of these measures must inevitably mean, a very different stale ot
ugnirs may come about.
At n special meeting of the Board of
Trade last week, and also at a largely
attended public gathering in the Market Hall, the principal subject of discussion was the British Pacific railway, and with the exception of one
dissentent voice, a resolution condemn*
ing 'he scheme in tutu wns passed.
Public feeling is running very high
indeed, the result of the survey of tin-
proposed line having convinced every
one in Vancouver of the impracticability of the project, for to construct
the railway us at present proposed,
would be to accomplish the greatest
engineering feat ever attempted iu ihe
world, and that too at the cost uf
more millions than one cures to count.
The general opinion her.) appears tu
he that it is a scheme det ised by a few
men to benefit some property owners
and capitalists nt lhe risk, nny tin'
ruination nf the Provincial credit, and
it is currently surmised on llie main*
laud that the promoters hate not and
never have luul, the slightest intention
of   continuing   the   lino   be)Olid   the
limits uf  Vancouver  Island, hut that
having once secured the hum, uud expended it nil upon the const met ion uf

_33a__^KSsaa-3-^^ EDITORIAL NOTES.
Last Saturday's 'Tiser was not a
little profuse in comments of the Golden curlers. And though some of them
"lacked 13 cents of having two bits,"I
think they will acknowledge they
spent more money in five days than
Calgary had seen for a mouth. Some
of us are soft enough sure, but I do
not think there was a man who did
not know that last Saturday was the
-9th ot February. Its last issue is u
rare copy, sure. It may have been
'���printed on the Siltli ot February,''
the editor tells us so, though it bears
the dates oi twice lil und 14. Which
is its unlucky number'*1 A
Thero is more than a rumor that
sleeves are to reiurujto the old,narrow
shape und certain it, is that attempts
are being made to .reintroduce tight
ones by the best Loudon dressmakers,
for duy as well'as evening wear. Ou
; he other baud, the French -,moduls
have their sleeves, wider than ever,
Hot at the shouleers, that shape is
quite ot the past, but at the elbow, aud
so stiffened.,tire, they.thut they have
almost the effect of being wired, tlio'
such is uot the case. As loi'g us
skirts ure cut so wide (and ihe width
is increasing instead of Uecreasin^j
full sleeves are a necessity, the appearance of small sleeve and huge skirts
would i.ppiuuuh tlie ^lulesi'iie tuu
closely to.be tuler.ituu even by llie ul-
tiU'fusliiij|iiible;,liiere must be a certain degree of correspondence between
the different portions of a dress. Another rumor, that witli respect to
Houuces, is more credible. Some of the
lutest gowns have one deep /.ounce iu
fast, the movement towards trimmed
skirts for evening wear is decided nud
will extend undoubtedly to duy dresses
as the mouths advance.
TtiKiiK we nre again! Iu another
column' will be found a letter from Air.
Cowell, assayer, North Star Mine, to
tbe effect that the report that some of
the ore ot the North Star mine assayed
17.000 ounces to the ton is absolutely
incorrect. Now who urigiuiaied such
statements? That they should have
got into the press of nearly all the
mining records iu Canada is uo small
matter. Ou the luce of the thing of
course any one with any practical experience iu milling fields would only
consider it as a subject of laughter.
but still I don't think East Kootenay
enn at present afford to be made an
object ot ridicule. Itis the duty of
the press to record the truth, the
whole truth, and nothing but the trtit h
especially uf anything concerning tlie
mining industry of a country to which
il is to our interest to bring capital.
And such reports-though some may
regard them as "facetiae"-tend to
make capital "fight shy" of any such
fabulously rich mine, ns of course they
cannot hope to get ihem ut less than
fabulous prices.
The Fort Steele jMiuing Association
hns sent a resolution to J. A. Mara,
Esq.. M.P., to the effect that ihey
want a railroad. This is correct
enough. A road connecting southern
East and West Kootenay with the
prairie, thus oi ening up the Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields, wpuld he a great
thing for them; but you see, they wish
to obtaiu this at the guarantee if uut
expense ot other parts of the province,
to which some individual communities
it would be more of a luss than oilier-
wise. Let the section, through which
the road is proposed to be projected
guarantee the interests on the bonds
and then no possible kick can be made,
but any otlier wuy of guaranteeing
them is really unfair to the whole of
the Province. It they would do this
their resolution that: "it would be a
perfectly safe action on the part of the
' government to guarantee the interests
ou the bonds and thus enable the coin-
liaftjt to raise the necessary capital"
would then Sud no opposition in ether
parts of the province. But surely the
million deficit of the government was
large enough last ,\ ear without attempting to make it lurgcr in this

Rossland, Feb. -9.- The .continuous
mild weather of the past two or three
weeks has removed a good deal of the
snow from the hill sides. Ore teams
have nearly all been idle for a couple
of weeks now, with little prospect of
their resuming work .for soiue time.
It is estimated that from 100 to 150
people come into the town every week,
of whom one-half remain.
Several new buildings are already
commenced and others are projected
for a little later in the spring. Real
estate is moving upward-in price, and
there is every prospect of considerable
business activity here this summer.
A publio meeting was held in the
Opera house lust night to discuss thc
proposed tax on mines and minerals,
and strong resolutions were passed
condemning the measure, as being calculated to impede and injure the mining industry of the whole proviuce.

for the past month has been comparatively small, owing to the state ol the
roads, but ull ure prepared to rush
