SATUBDAY,  AUGUST  9,   1890.
Hon. Edgar Dewdnoy, Minister of
the Interior, returned East last Monday morning, and Messrs. Win. Cowan and Wm. M, Brown boarded tbo
train and went as far as tho Glacier
for llio purpose of gnining information in regard to the land question at
Revelstoke, They found tho Hon.
Minister quite willing lo talk, and
Iky report a very agreeable nnd satisfactory interview. Tho Government
is now prepared to givo deeds to all
holders of titles under Mr. Farwell,
nud requests all such to unite anil
forward thoir deeds -or evidences of
ownership in a body to Ottawa. The
Minister requests that un effort be
made lo havo all claimants unilo and
save troublo lo tbo Department by
sending together their applications
for Crown Grants, and tbo evidence
upon which they bnso their claims.
Deeds will then in due time bo issued
lo all who are entitled lo receive them,
at a small charge for surveying nud
the usual Government fee for a Crown
Iu regard to the balance of the
townsite property, the Hon. Miuister
states that an auction sale of lots will
be held on the ground, wilhin a short
time, It is expected tbat this will
take place as soon after his return to
Ottawa as tho maps and plans cau be
put in shape for the sale.
It is uow believed that the long
waiting for titles to townsite pioper-
ty will soon end, and that all who
wish to buy ljts will have an opportunity, and that building operations
will spring into activity without
further delay.
Judge Tunstall has received notice
from the government at Victoria
that the appropriation available for
West Kootenay was hut 810,900, instead of $12,000 as had been heretofore believed. This is exceedingly
unfortunate, for the reason that improvements had been authorized aud
work commenced on the basis of an
expenditure of $12,000, Judge
Tunstall acting on information received from Col. Baker. At the
monthly meeting of the Miner's Association last Monday evening, a
special committee was appointed
with instructions to enter into oom-
munication with Col. Baker with the
view of getting tbe appropriation restored to ��12,000, in order that the
improvements may be carried out as
originally planned.

Revelstoke, July 8, 1800,
It is not true, as intimatod by the
Miner, that anythiug has appeared
in the Star taking "excoption to tho
government expending so much
money in the lower end of West
Kootenay District and so little in the
upper end." Thepoiutof ihe communication referred to was, that
after an appropriation of $012,000
for ittilroad, and ({10,500 of a total of
��12,000 for general purposes, bad
been secured for Lower Kootenay,
some of tbe peoplo of Netaon wished
to mako another draw upon tbo
small sum of $800 which had boen
act apart for an "emergency fund."
At tho satno timo only $700 had boon
ns thou supposed, appropriated for
tho upper cud of the district. Tho
STAB wants Lower Kootonny to l.uvo
all it has got and all that it requires,
because it btlieves that its expenditure there will help to givo prosperity to the entire district,
A representative meeting of the
members aud adherents of tho Episcopal Church was held iu tho edilice
on Saturday evouing last. His Lordship the Bishop in tho chair, for Iho
purpoHO of discussing arrangements
looking to a more satisfactory supply of pulpits iu this portion of tho
diocese. Much regrot was express-
Bed by Iho Bishop al Iho demoralized
condition of affairs, tho blamo for
which, however,   he   cntiroly  re
pudiated. That there was considerable tension existing among tho congregations, he was aware,tint argued
that this foeling had been doubly
increased by a partial misunderstanding of the circumstances in
connection with the securing of pastoral supply. Tho onus of this unsatisfactory slate of affairs bo bold
lay with the predecessor of tho present incumbent in charge of the district. His Lordship, however, from
information gathered at various
points in tho distriot, felt satisfied
lliey wore in a position to support
threo ministers. Ho had already
made partial arrangements for the
engagement of two in addition to
tbe incumbent nt Kamloops, one of
whom was in full orders aud could
reside at Donald, holding a bimonthly service. This would entail
in all an expenditure of about $2,809
for stipends, which amount bad
been guaranteed in proportion by
tho congregations throughout tho
district. This proposition was ultimately declarod satisfactory, and the
meeting adjourned, the Bishop to
lay the matter before tbo Kamloops
Advisory Board whose concurrence
is necessary before tbe arrangement
can go iuto offuct. During the evening the Bishop admitted that he had
boen altogether misinformed as to
the ability of Goldon to support a
minister. Ho had to depend largely
upon verbal report for his information regarding many points in his
oxtensive diocese, and this ia respect
to the latter had completely mislead
him. He expected much from Golden in tho future.
Impressive services wore conducted iu the church on Sunday morning
and evening by his lordship,
The GOO lb. bell after much delay,
is now being placed in position in
tbo turret of tbe church, and will
hereafter extend its inviting notes to

them in their new departure.
William Gray an intending passenger for the coast was disagreeably surprised on Friday, tbe 1st
inst., an arriving in Donald by the
noon express, when confronted by
Sheriff Redgrave with an order calling for his arrest charging him with
bringing stolen money into Cauada.
The prisoner took the matter cooly
and was at ouco oscortel to the
lockup, Gray, it appears, was engaged as baggiigomaster in the employ of tho expross company al
Hurley, Wisconsin, and absconded
with $309!) of the company's funds.
Conductor II. Abbey, in chargo of
tho train upon which the prisoner
was Iruvoling, having been furnished with a description of the man,tho
distinctive fcaluro of which was tho
partial loss of a tliumli. Noticing
this bo telegraphed the resident
sheriff of tho prisoner's presouco ou
Iho train, Upon being searched
$22(10 of the amount stolen was found
upon his person. Conductor Abbey
in all probability receives a large
proportion of llio reward of $590
offered for the man's arrest. Tho
usual course will bo taken to oxtra-
dite the prisoner.
Willi but natural assumption tho
Winnipeg papers credit Chief Mc-
rae of tho police department with
issuing the order for Gray's arrest.
This is given an unqualified denial
by Sheriff Redgrave, who said that
Mcllao knew nothing whatever of
tbo man's arrest until wired from
here. The credit of the arrest is duo
to Conductor Abbey and the local
polico aulhorit.ioB,
John Hart, an employoo ia the
round-house, sustained a severe
fracture of the collur-bono nud other
injuries on Friday last by falling
from tho boiler of an engino while
engaged in repairs. The unfortunate
man, who intended leaving for the
const ill a few days is under treatment nt llio hospital,
At the session of court held at
Donald August 1st, there were eight
oases tried before Judge Spinks. It
was his iirst appearat.ee amongst us
as Judge of fhe County Court, aul I
need hardly say that his metbo.l of
handling tho matters brought before him shows that ho has studied
law advantageously to himself, and
therefore it enables him to meet out
justice to others. No one can be
more painstaking than the judge
and right through a long day's work
he perilled diligently every document which could bo of service in
the cases brought before him, aud I
venturo to say tbat all who heard
him feel conlldeuce iu his superior
judgment aud his fair and impartial
decisions. Wo shall bail bis presence among us with much pleasure
whenever we have a court aud knotty
questions to unravel.
Tho Iirst case ou the docket was
Stark vs. A. B. II, Cochrane aud II.
J. Sharp of Golden, Settled out of
court, O'Bricu against the same
parties was also settled out of court.
Brieu aud Bains vs. Kiunainey, of
Golden. Claim admitted, to bo paid

Martin O'Brien vs. J. W. Can nor,
$119. Claim admitted and part of it
paid into court, balance iu tiva
Steen vs. Gibson. After witnesses
were beard on both sides, the caso
waa dismissed with costs. Mr.
Spragge for plaintiff, Mr, Fulton of
Kamloops for defendant.
Milligan vs. Anderson. Judgment
for plaintiff in $212. to be paid iu
mouihiy installments. O'Brien vs.
Barao, $151, settlement to be made in
same manner.
Trethoway vs. Cariboo Creek
Mining Co,, of Illecillewaet, claim
$998.50, This on3B took up most of
tho day and many witnesses were
called on both tiles. Plaintiff performed contract work making tunnel
in company's mining ground at Illecillewaet. Food was furnished
plaintiff and mon were paid a Binall
sum. The contract prico was $10
per foot, wilb a forfeiture of $5 per
foot ou failure to perform a certain
amount of work, work to be measured monthly before a pay 6beet could
go iu. Defendants failed to measure work, and plaintiff therefore
contends they failed in their contract. Evidence heard on both sides
and as thero was a lot of documents
requiring a "Philadelphia lawyer"
to unravel, the judge took all papers
and reserved his decision.
On tho 1st of August, William
Gray, an absconder from Hurley,
Wisconsin, engaged in Uiited
.Suites Express Company, was arrested by Sheriff Redgrave aud Constable Lendram, ou the chargo of
bringing stolen money into Canada.
When searched the sum oi $2,127.20
was found upou his person. Telegrams were sent to Sheriff Watson
of Chicago, and his arrival is expected in a few days. Meanwhile
tbe prisoner is luxuriating on tbo
best of food that the Sheriff's hotel
at Donald affords,

al Iho idea, and soon, with Biviuging
lassos, were advancing in a circle
upon Iho bear,
Only one of them allowed no enthusiasm in this undertaking. Louis
By a great effort, Iho terrified
horse, though half borne down by
tho shock, breke loose and dashed
away before Ihe bear could repeat
his attack, When Ebel had put a
safe distance between himself and
his antagonist, he turned about lo
"Hello, boys,there's a cow down!"
said a bronze-faced man in broad-
brimmed sombrero, eluiperiilo and
Mexioan spurs,. He was one of a
gfOlip of live. The cow-boys reined
up their bronchos in order to look,
nnd tinn, turning, rode in the direction to which he pointed.
They wero nt tho foot of ono of
those great mesas or table-liuuls
which, in New Mexico, extend eastward from tho Bocky Mountains,
and fall precipitously ono down to
another liko vast steps, till the Gulf-
coast plain in Texas is reached.
Tho object toward which the group
was riding turned out on near inspection to bo a half-grown calf,
which had been recently killod in a
violent utid terrible fashion, Its
back was broken, and its skiu was
torn in shreds.
Evidently tho cowboys had scon
something like it not long before,
for after looking at it iu silence for
a moment, one of them remarked,
" It's a bear's work, boys, dead
"It's the same bruto that killed
those calves for Heckle lust week,"
said another,
"Yes, aud a colt for Allison,"
spoke up another. '"We've got to
turn out and hunt him down as soon
as the round-up is over."
"If we wait till then, fliers won't
be much young stock alive on the
range," said the first speaker, "Ho
kills about a critter a night."
Tho parly turned their horses'
heads, resumed their Iirst course,
and were soon riding in single file
up tho narrow trail that leads to the
top of the mesa.
It is not often that tho grizzly j
lifci,( has been found at large east of j
the Bocky mountains, or elsewhere
ou the open plain; but somo largo
animal had lately made sad havoo
among the colts aud calves of the
cattle rouges about the mesa. Iu to

the scattered herds bad at first
escaped notice, but they scon be

his companions wero net far from

of big game of tho western mountain
and plains, wore an expression nf
reserve and tkoogbtiulness. He
did his part with thu rest, but he
handled hia hor.se with great oircurn-
Bpection, smiled lo himself with deep
meaning, and cast an eyo backward
from timo to timo lo examine tho inequalities of ground, us if he expected shortly lo ride over it in
Tbo Mexican vaquoros of tho old
days, who lived in tho saddle, used
sometimes to capture llio grizzly
wilb llio lasso. Several horsemen
worked in concert, and their method
of operation was to get Uo or more
lassos over llio bear at onoo, and, by |
drawing them tight fro:u different ]
directions, to hold tho beast at the
mercy of bis captors; but the modes
of driving cattle of tho present day
havo not served to perpetuate this
marvellous skill,
Tho boys had often talked over
the proper way in which a grizzly
should be lassoed, aud Ihe undertaking had seemed quite feasible.
Now tbat thu chance to mnko the
experiment was offered, they found
unexpected difficulty in carrying
out the practical details. This
grizzly bear was clumsy in appearance but very active, repellant of
manner and with a marked antipathy to any intrusion upon his privacy. He seemed possessed of a
fixed idea, which was to gain the
broken ground toward which ho was
making when ho was discovered, and
lie kept pushing toward it in spile
of obstacles.
Apparently he know what he
wauled and did not care to be bothered. When his assailants came too
near he turned with a growl,  a dis-
him, They slopped then to coil up
their lariats���which they hud not
taken time to do when ia Ihe vicinity
of the bear.
The cowboys watched tho grizzly.
Satisfied with having put bis assail'
ants to flight, bo had not followed
thorn, With a clear field he was
having it out with Ebol's slicker.
The noose had fallen about his neck
and under cue shoulder, and his
impatience would not permit him to
take Ihe necessary steps to throw it
off. lie bit at it with tho effect only
to draw it tighter. He lose on his
haunches and cuffed at it savagely.
His fury was tremendous, From
timo to limo tho idea seemed lo
striko him that Iho flicker was associated with tho persistant attentions
of Iho rope, and bo rushed at that
inoffensive and tightly strapped
bundle and toro it ;,savagoly with
teeth and paws, Then ho renewed
his struggle with llio lasso.
The slicker fared badly, but the
rope go far as the witnesses saw, had
altogether tho best of tho encounter.
The bear finally broke for the rough
ground, and, keeping up a running
light with the rope all tho way, disappeared among the rocks and trees
���in the direction of the canon.
The cowboys rode to tho scene of
the encounter. A considerable area
was torn up. The slicker was in
that "state of tntterment," as one of
the boys afterwards expressed it,
"that you couldn't havo got out of
it a fair-sized shoe-string." Louis
Walker's inward smile had developed superficially into nfull-sized grin.
'T uould have toll yon befove boys,

"but 'twould have spoiled your fua,

Washington, August 2. ��� There
has been a good deal of warlike talk
since tbe publication of tho Behring
Bra eorrcsuoudeuce and tho very
stiff protest wbieh Lord Salisbury
addressed to Secretary of State
Blaine, but the consensus of opinion
is that the United Slates is hardly in
a positior. to go to war witbEngland,
Despite the vigorous efforts which
havo beer made during the last few
years to build up a navy, this country has very few vessels which could
compare with the magni icent fleets
England could send over here in case
of trouble, and all tho great ports
are in such an unprotected state that
it would be no trouble for a few
first-class ironclads to stand off and
shell them at their leisure. The
military aud naval authorities have
nothing to rely on as a means of
harbor defenoo except torpedoes,and
while Bubmaiine torpedoos are good
enough in their way, they are, alter
all, a very insecuro defence unless
lliey are rein forced by forts on the
land and a 'good fleet of cruising
vessels. Ou the entire Atlantic coast
there is net a fort worthy of the name
nor is there a largo modern high-
nowered fjnn. The seme stato of
t lin^s exists ou thel'nciric const, and
with tbe exception ot the half dozen
cruisers wbieh have bei n built in
