"Mr. Corbin reports at Spokane
Fails that he will have a daily line
to Nelson and the Kootenny Lako
mines. The Canadian Pacifio branch
will be finished in a few weeks from
Sproat'B Landing to Kelson, which
will lotvo only fiftv-five miles of
steamboating to the Little Dalle*.
"The poverimcnt appropriation of

Priest's Rapida allows $10,000 for a
survey cf the rivor from Priest's
Rapida north lo the boundary lino;
but as Captain Cymons says ths
work will uot be dono until next
spring, Mr, Corbin will have his
own engineers make a survoy from
the Little Dalles to the line thia fall,
and if the work will not cost too
much Kr. Corbin will make ths
river navigable that distance, nnd
firmly intends to run daily all noxt
year, summer and winter.
"The Canadian government have
made an appropriation for the river
above tho line to Sprout's Landing,
whioh takes in the Kootonei Rapids,
v.-liich arc tho word on tho river, bo.
t-.vcen tlm Littlo Dalles and the
landing,"
Tho above extract from tho Spokane Review, gives an insight into
the plans of tho Spokane k Northern
Railway to reach and control tho
trad;- uf Kootenay Lake, It is a very easy matter to have daily communication by boat betweon Sproat and
Little Dalles. Tho steamer Lytton
makes the round trip, starting at 8
a. in. from Sprout cad returning at
4 to 5 p, m., and cau mr.ke it every
day if required, Eut in case she ia
put on thut route, to satisfv the am-
oition of tha Spokaae peoplo for a
daily Hue, vbat will become of lbs
upper cud of the line between Sproat
and Rovdstoke ? The Kcetenni may
run it threo times a week during high
water, but net oftener, and not at all
even when ths water begins to get
lovr, But it is understood that sho
wiil bo employed ia towing scoffs
carrying heavy frei~hfc down and
bringing ore back to ths ameltsr.
Wlit't thon needs to be dono for
thn protection of Canadian trade?
The fSleamboiit Company will naturally wish to hold tho business between Little Dulles r.nd Sproat, bnt
what provision ft ill bo mr.de lo givo
equal and adequate accommodation
to transportation from Rovclstok??
It cannot be dona without the addition of a first class new stoamer to
iho fleet.
It is not only what Revelstoko
wants, but it i3 what all Canadian
trado interests demand, to ba placed
on an equal footing with Spokane
Falls, or any cthsr American city
which aspires to compete foi tho
trade of Kootenay Lake. The manages of tho Steamboat Company of
conrro m)o this very oloarly, aud we
hope they will take ths nooossary
means ts most it, and at the same
timo retain the carrying trade of the
American eud of the route,
i)"t receiving enongh acceptable
bank notes in which to make bis remittances, A�� a last resort, therefore, he mado suitable ropreaenta-
tions to headquarteri���a properly
emphasized "kick," aa it were���and
the obnoxious rule was relaxed ns to
Revelstoke,
The singular thing about the
whole matter is, that an order made
for the BUpposable purpose of doing harm to a bank by discrediting
its currency, should have the directly
npposito effect. The bank in sending out ourrenoy hopai it will not
return for redemption immediately,
and the O, P, R. which is tbe only
great artery of transport wilhin the
Dominion, by which it might return,
refuses to receive it, aud thereby
assists tho bank to keep it in circulation.

A Grout Experiment.
The importance of the experiment
which is being tried in the valley of
tho Thompson Hirer cannot be wel.
overated. The dry belt is of great
extent. It contains millions of
iici-os, This land is tot now productive. It is of little or no nse to the
inhabitant) of the province. Supply
it with water and it will be as fertile
and ai productive as any in the
province. The freitfulusts of these
arid lands after they have been irrigated is really extraordinary. It
seems as if they had been waiting
for ages for the water necessary to
make thcai yield abundant erops.
Vegetation is rapid and luxoriant,
aud the products raised on it aro not
only abundant hut of the finest
quality. In saany localities it can
be insdo toyioldjtwoor more crops
of vegetables, two hoary ercpe of
hay, and the finest roots and cereals.
If ifator enough can be found on
these dry lands to raise a good crop
of hay it will be eonverted into tbe
fiueat stock raising country in the
world, Three or four tons to tho
acre on irrigated land is cot an unusual crop, All that the soil waute
to enable tho farmer to produce it is
water.
We said that there are millions of
acres of land in this provinoe which,
if the experiment now being tried by
the Government provo successful,
will be reclaimed ami made to yield
heavy crops.   Assume that the Government experiment results  in redeeming only half a million of acres
from the wildorness,   This addition
to ths arable laud of ths  province
will add immensely to  its  vr.lue,
There is not an industry  in tho
country that will net foel the stims-
Ins which such an audition  to  the
available resources of tha province
will cause,   The vslus ef the  pro-
duet of eaoh acre irrigated  land
canuot be  less than forty dollars.
This wc I Link a moderate estimate,
This will make an annual yield  of
twenty million dollars.   Is not the '
chance of increasing the produtt of
the proviuce to that immouso extent
worth  the  expenditure  of   a fev
thousand dollars?   This  implies a
large  addition to tha  population.
Fine farms,  with   pleasant  home
steads, gardens and orchards, flocks
and herds, will be scon whero there
is now only the dry brown  earth,
partially  covered   with  Bkant  and
stunted  vegetation,   Thu  transformation will Iu a  biesbod  one.  and
those   engaged  iu trying   to bring
it about should not allow themselves
to bo discouraged,  mach  lose  deterred,  by  the croakieg  and   the
growling of Buiull minded politicians
whose heads are so fillud  wjthtjiejr.
they have uo room in them for large
projects,  intended   to benefit   tke
wholo province now and for ages to
cone.    What,  after   all,  are the
subjects which tho small politicians
make IO mich fuss   about compared
with  this attempt   to  bring  into
cultivation an inmenie tract of land,
tbe eapidoillie�� ef whioh aro eo great
that, if it is reclaimed, tko prospects
of tho province will be brightened
to an incalculable  extent,  and   its
prosperity, present unit future, will
be assured ?   Compared with the importance of this enterprise every,

A Visitor from  Australia,
John Johnston, from Sydney, New
South Wales, Australia, of the firm
of A. Johnston k Co., 'iii'roa.l   con-
tractors and mining operators, left
that country on tlie Dth day of July
last, and came by th-)   way   of  Sun
Franoisoo to Victoria, theneeorossiD?
to   England,     He   returned   here
about one month ago, to carry ont
the original program,-which was to
obtain a knowledge of the mines anl
mieing possibilities of Wi.st Kootenny
District,   He first went to illecillewaet, by" arrangement with Eund
Sando, of Loudon, who had  boiinht
an interest in  mines  there, exumiu-
iag the Maple Leaf, Goat Cave, Yellow Girl and others,     The  mineral
found was very good, but there hue
not been much systematic work done
in tho camp.
Ee then went to Kootonay Lake in
company with Dr. Canpholl, tha
first call being made ut Dot Springs.
lie found it to be tho richest new
mineral field he ever saw,���nothing
to equal it either in Australia er
New Zealand. Two local companies
are carrying on mining opcrattone
legitimately, one under the direction
of Dr. Campbell, for the Iievelstoke
Mining Company, and the oUer by
Mr. A. D. Wheeler, nud the work
they aro doing is oretlitable to them
at practical meu and mine managers.
Not much can be said as to thu balance of the camp as to tho work accomplished, All the mines inspectid
13 in number, show good mineral in
silver and lead, The leads in this
oamp, run north and south, dippiug
to tbe wast at an angle of 15 degrees.
Mr. Johnston was net able to
give tho Hull mines an examination
on account of tbe depth of enow already fallen, bnt visited the Door
Man Mine, where he saw a fiid
plant of machinery, which was shut
dowu for want of water. Near this
property northward are the Wizard
and Royal Canadian. Ho formed sc'
favorable u�� opinion of iho latter
mine, that he offi tv.i the owners
815,000 for it, on condition that one
ton of ore treated at the Iievelstoke
Smelter, should run l,1, ounces to
the ton. Although mueh higher
value is claimed for it, the proposition was accepted, und tho oro will
come forward as soon as it is possible to make the shipment.
Ue was solicited to go to Trail
Creek, bat for want of time was
unable to do so. Some samples cf
ore, however, which he saw from
that place, had much base mineral
in combination with the preeions
metals,
He will strongly advise his princi
pals to make investment* especially
in Hot Springs camp, and he is vtry
confident that tbey will do eo next
spring. He expresses his obligation* to Judge Tunstall aud Dr.
Campbell fur their attention and
kindness shown in asaistiug to
further the object! of his visit.
A large number of samples wire
brought in from the various uii ti
examined, which will be assayed by
Mr. lloeser, ami certiQeates of the
result forwarded, Mr. Johnston
