The lead mining industry ifl cer-
taiuly in its infancy in British Columbia, io much so that a movement
ui ule now to protect it by tariff legislation would be almost as premature as when it was suggested lust
year to placo a duty of I cents per
pound on it, which however very
wisely did not meet the approval of
the Finance Minister. Tho reason
donbtless was, and it holds good
today, that there is no lead mined or
manufactured in Canada, and what-'
ever duty is placed upou it would
ouly increase the cost by just so
much to all consumers in the Dominion, without benefitting producers,
for the simplo reason that there are
none. As soon however ns the silver-
lead mines of British Columbia are
able to supply tbe Canadian market
with lead, a tariff should be placed
on it that will be prohibitory, and so
large that the Canadian Pacific Railway can transport it from Kootenay
District to the eastern cities of the
Dominion at a paying freight, and
still leave a good profit to tbe mine
owners. When the supply exceeds the
demand for homo consumption, the
surplus can find a market in Japan
nnd China, and beiug nearer to them
thini the United States, wo can compete with thorn iu tho-o markets.
We think it wool I be best to put
into the hands of the Dominion Premier discretiC'ary power to impose
a duty on lend, for the reason that
its'production may spring into sudden activity, depending only upon
the Bj'e'aiii for transporting ores to
the snieltws already in existence in
Kootenay District.

This gifted and adventurous lady,
in a letter to the Star, says : " I am
indebted to somo unknown friend for
a copy of your issue containing a poem that I wrote during my last year's
visit to British Columbia. It occurs
to mo that the enclosed has quite ns
much merit, nnd it may be of local
iniorest to your readers, although it
was first published in tho Journal of
Education, Boston, aud has boon quite
widely copied. My visits to British
Columbia, as tbo correspondent of tho
Boston Transcript, havo interested mo
much, as you may judge when I tell
you 1888, '89 and '90 found mo along

Race of the Engine and the River down
the Kicking Horse Pass.
Past hurries on our iron steed
To gain the racing river's 6peed I
Now cliugiug to a narrow lodge
Upou the chasm's very edge,
Whero, madly boiling far below,
The foaming, swirling waters go )
Now, crawling o'er a trestle high,
Our cautions way we slowlv try )
And then tho stream gots far ahead ;
It laughs alougits rocky bed,
Tossing tho fleecy foam-bells high
In gleeful scorn that we'd daro try
To catch it in its headlong race ;
How'er, wo quickly couquer space,
And, neck and neck, again wo rido
Beside tbo mad, tempestuous lido
Through canyons whoro the sun ne'er
Whilo stately "million-finger'd jrines,"
And giant firs, like specters stand
About us, grim, on either bawl.
And solemn crags look down to seo
If steam' or stream the victor'll be.
Sometimes by sudden, headlong leap,
Tbe river gaius, httt cttnuot keep
The lead, for steam is strong.
The race, though desperate, lasts not
Whon the full truth it sadly learns
Tho baffled river northward turns,���
In forest-gloom its shame to hide,
And we, iu triumph onward ride,
Whilo loud sounds out tho whistlo
Its notes of joy, that human skill,
Allied1 to swift, " Strong-shouldered
Has vauquish'd tho luniullu'us stream.
The echoes sound and sound again
Through nil tbo solitary glen,
As if each roci; had found n voice
To help our iron stood rejoice,

RoBEUT Robson, Secretary,
Mr. Sinclair, in responding to the
address and the gift which accompanied it, had a pleasant but a difficult lask to perform, as was evident
from the mi; ti ui which rilled his
voice v hen he essayed to speak. He
reviewed hia- cxiurionceof two years
iu Revelstoke aud referred to its material growth as well as its moral advancement ; ho spoke iu warm terms
of the harmony which prevails
among the adhereuU ol all forms of
religious faiih, and expressed the
hope that it would continue, Al*
though he might not again be located
anioaj; thoie people, his efforts would
be directed towards the unity of all
Christines, an I if h-i did nit go to
foreign Held ns �� missionary ho
Would perhaps lake np tbe work of
the Voting Men's Christian Association, nbcro denominational lines
were not regarded.
Mr. Lewis made a few remarks
highly complimenting Mr. Sinclair's
ability and penetretiug miud and
predicting for him a bright record in
tie ministry.
We are unable to 'give the names
of all tbe ladies who assisted in making the evening so agreeable, although some might be especially
mentioned, but the efferts of all
blended so burmouioisly that no one
oould say, if either one, was entitled
to more credit than unolhor. It is
enough to add that all did their best

Tlio Wrestling Match.
The first exhibition of champion
wiestling ever held in Revelstoke,
took place Thursday evening, Oot.
16tb. D. H. Cameron, champion
mixed wrestler of the Pacific Coast,
and J. C. Riohardsou, champion
catch-as-catch-can of B.C. gave an
exhibition, which, could scarcely
have boon hotter, if it had boen "for
blood." It was well attended for the
short notice given, several coming
down from Illecillewaet, where
Richardson formerly lived.
The first trial was catch-as-catch-
can, and was won by Richardson in
14 minutes of hard work.
The second trial was Greco-
Roman, which is Cameron's favorite
and waa won by him in 8 miuntes.
The third was another trial at
catoh-a8-catch can, which after u fine
display of attack and defence, for 9
���ainntes, resulted in a victory for
Richardson, and gavehim the match.
Thoy went to Illecillewaet yesterday morning, to visit Richardson's
fut her, and we expect soon to hear
from them again on the coast.
