The McKinley Turin" Act, has now
becomo a law in the United States
Its provisions are exciting the attention of the lending countries of Europe, more than any other measure
in recent yeors. Jingland, Germany,
France, Austria and Italy are Murmuring, and some moans of retaliation will doubtles.-i be devised, or ut
least ways to counteract tbe conae*
queuces. One of thn first to show
its resentment is Italy, which dis-1
solves its National Committep which
had in its charge the arrangements
for the great Columbian Fair to be
held in Chicago, for celebrating the
4th Centennial of the discovery of
America by Columbus. What olhsr
nations may do has not yet beeu I
learned, and it is too early perhaps
to decide, It is sumewhat anomalous
perhaps that a trade matter, which is
entirely wjthin the privileges of any
nation to regulate as il sees lit, should
causo so great a sensation. It appears now as if the United States
are U be made to feel that they farm
one of the great community of nations, and that tjieir fiscal pojjcy
should be regulated iu the interest of
fraternity aud uot upon purely selfish lines,
The reforenpec, of Sir John Mao-
donald to the subject are exceedingly sensible. While admitting the
seriousness of the situation, ho ndvi-
se�� the Canadian people to seek other
outlets for their surplus productions,
and to turn their activities into channels wlrch will afford opportunities
for reciprocal benefits.
Mr. Wm. Penroe, Suporintonleu
of mines, with headquarters at Calgary was commissioned by tho Minister of the Interior to investigate the
question of water supply for Revel-
stolio and visited the iovvn for that
purpose on the 8th of Sept. We
are able to give bis report this week.
It is the onbject uppermost in tbe
minds of our people at present, and
will command an attentive perusal.
Tho points, that tho fire supply
must be first provided for by a separate set o' mains, and that the water
for domestic uses can bs'obtaiued
from tho overflow only necessitating
a double sot of mans Is based on the
i-lea that tho sourcos of supply
would be insufficient for both purposes), and adds so greatly to the ex ���
peua.e cf the scheme that its promoters should consider carefully before
embarking in |t on this basis. The
great question ja to secure an adequate source of supply, before going ahead in the organization of the

Report   of    Sunefintemleiit
A Court of Revision aud Appeal under the Assessment Act will be held at
the Government Office, at Nelson, on the
18th day of October, at 10 o'clock, a, nf,,

and Appeal,
Revelstoke, Sept, 18th, 1691).
While the public spirit of the
people is being agitated on tbe subject of water works, the need for a
cemetery should not he forgotten.
We presume it is unquestioned that
the Dominion Government will set
apart a plat of land for a site, whenever they arc applied to for it- The
Stab, believes it js not to tha credit
of tbp people of Revelstoke that this
matter has been so long and so persistently neglected. The necessity
for a suitable place to bury our dead
is increasing year by year, The
land should be obtained from tho
Government, surveyed nnd platted,
a good road should be constructed
nnd kept in order at ail seasons, and
th�� pride of pur people should be
appealed to, to clear off and grade
the ground, and to ornament and
make it attractive. It is uot an
agreeable thought to feel that by any
turn of of events, the grounds ivhero
our friends are buried, may become
tbe privut,o property of men who will
have, it in their power to desecrate
the mounds which mark the graves

We publish  on   the  inside  this
week, the reprort made by Mr. Boyle
to the shareholders of the Kooteuuy
Smelting  aud   Trading  Syndicate,
giving the results of bis observations
during h;s recent visit,  upuu all
matters relating to the prospects of
his Company.   It is an eminently
practical and intelligent survey of
the entire situation as regards Smelting and mining in Kootenay District,
It will well  reward  perusal  by all
interested in Ihe subjects referred to.
A matter of ihe utmost importance
to the succeio of the smelte.-the
erection cf, refining y/orks.-is receiving tbo attention of the Company,
and P?. Campbell, iu charged   with
tbe duty of submitting, estimates of
tho cost of   the necessary  plant.
When these works are completed,
tbe facilities of Revelstoke  for tho
troalmeni, of. ore, will bo all that
could be desired, nnd if must become
the market for the mines of the district,, as well as the place whero its
bullion will ho refined, as at present
there is no refinorjr in Canada, aud
' we believe no|other one projected.
The compliments givon to Dr.
Campbell, superintendent, and Mr.
Roosor, chemist and assayer, of the
Smelter Company, is uot ouly grati-
fving to the many Illinois of those

CalgaRj', Sept, 13th 1S90.
Sin.���In roply to your letter of the
28th August, No. 212,011,1 have the
honor to report that I visited llevel-
Btoke on the 8th instant.
The stream referred to in the petition is located about ns shown on tbe
accompanying sketch, being on the
N. W. ji 81-23-2 W. Oth M. It
is a very small one, and whilo admirably adapted for fire protection,
is not sufficiently largo to furnish
tho water necessary for domestic
purposes, that is, if it were allowed to
be placed In houses. It would be
sufficient to supplv mure street hydrants tljau would be required for
some time to come, but if allowed to
be plucod in p,pU8C|} thu waste would
he so great that the volume would be
inadequate for other purposes.
1 told tho parties interested that
the best 'Ling to bo done would be to
decile whereabouts thoy would do-
sire to have a reservoir on the creek
(to 06 dammed for that purpose,)
then have a survey made, showing
its position, nud I persumed there
would be no difficulty iu procuring
the sand ion of the Minister of tho
Interior to; its reservation for the
present nt least, together with the
right to carry water in pipes through
any Government land lying between
the reservoir and the townsite,
I think a reservoir could be cheaply built which would have a head of
upwards of three hundred feet of
ampl.o capacity for fire protection,
and any overflow which there might
he therefrom oould ho allowed to be
usod for domestic purposes. It
would give u magnificent prossuro
for firo protection, and as stated, tho
overflow oould be used for domestic
purposos by laying a second t-et of
pipes and taking the ovcillow only,
or by taking tho wider a little lower
down tho creek a very considerable
amount oould bo obtained for the
latter purpose.
Thero is ono point however, to
which it might bo well to direct
your attcutiou, Should this water
bu utilized for the portion of tho
townsito now owned by the Government? I think it is not a greater
volume than is required for it, and I
understand thut the smelting company have obtained a water supply
elsewhere, via: the stream which
supplies the Canadian l'ucil.io Railway'water tanks ; tbey are obtaining
a supply from it which is ample tor
their requirements.
To whom to make this grant scorns
a question of difficulty. If Revelstoke
were iuaorperuted I porsumu it
oould Im gran led to tho corporation.
If, however, the partita are prepared
to form themoolvcH into a joint stock
company tho privilege might be
granted them, care being taken that
they did not chargo unduly therefor.
When it roaches thi railway track,
this stream becomes absorbed, and I
think reaches the river as seepage,
There is a little strcuui, uui shown
on the map, immediately east of it,
on which ut present u brewery is
erected, which lattor  takes  a  good
deal therefrom.   The proprietor informed mo that he hid not applied
foi th,e water, and asked me what he
had better do concerning it, an.l I
replie I to the effect that it would bo
best to apply to the agent of Dominion Lands in the matter.
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Yonr obedient servant,

The Inland Exhibition.

secoud annual exhibition of tho Inland Agricultural Association was
formally opened today at 2 o'clock
by bis honor, Judge Walkem, and is
magnificent in every particular, ia
point of excellence beiug of the highest order and in many classes
very extensive exhibits are made.
The weather conlj not be more propitious being bright and clear, iu
fact, typical Kamloops weather.
At 2 o'clock Judge Walkem ascended a platform erected for the purpose close to the pavilion and after a
happy speech, commenting upon the
origin and growth of tho Association
and encouraging it to continuo its
good work, declared the exhibition
opened. The baud played and hundreds of spectators then thronged
into tho pavilion.
The showing is wonderful in point
of excellence. Tho vegetables challenge comparison beiug models of
size and of peifect c utility, giving
the judges endless trouble iu deciding as to their relative merit. Tho
exhibits of grain are also of tho
finest though uot as exteusivo as iu
