There are several charters for railroads in Kootenay Distriot, but only
one is under construction -the Columbia .t Kootenay. Tho Crow's
Nest & Kootenay Lake Railway has
a 1'iovincial charter only, and does
not extend eastward beyond the summit of the Ricky Mountains. An
application for n charter was made to
Ihe Domiuioti Parliament last winter, but for some reason best known
tu Sir John Muoilonahl, he cut it off
seven miles beyon 1 ihoeistc-rn boundary of the Province, so that for the
present no rail connection can be
made eastwari from Crow's Nest
Pass, and tho probability is that
when a charter for a continuous road
is granted, it will bo in the hands of
the C P. R., or people who are its
friends. Meantime, Col, linker's
company rennius in existence, and
has three years to begin and five
years to completo from April 26
1S90, under its British Columbia
charter, and its construction appears
very uncertain. It is not en much
desired by the people of Kootenay
Likens connection southward, and
it is not necessary to the development of the district,
A stubborn fact has recently come
to our knowledge which explains tho
indifference of tbe 0, P. R. to the
Crowe's Nest route. So far as it has
been examined, It is not a feasible
ono, D. A, Stewart, the best exploratory engineer in the employment
of the road, went eastward a year
ago from Kootenay Lake, over the
Goat and Moyea river trails, which
is tho route colored by the Crow's
Nest charter, and later made another
effort to linil a pass to Kootenay lake
by ascending St, Mary's River west
ward from Fott Steele, but the best
line that could be found required a
tunnel eight miles long, and all explorations in the direction of Crow's
Nest Puss were therefore abandoned,
If there is a route for a railway in
thai part of Kootenny District, that
can bo built without extraordinary
cost, it is yet to be discovered.
There is no obstacle to building' a
road through the Crow's Nest Pass
westward to the Upper Kootenny
River, ami it seems to us this is the
only immediate outlet for tho coal
deposits of Col, Baker in the Rocky
Mountains. It is entirely feasible
to build dowu the river to a junction
with tbe Great Northern whero it
strikes the Kootenay riyer, if a charter ennld bo obtained to enss the
boundary near Tobacco Plains, otherwise ho would have to be satisfied
with transporting his coal by steamer
down tbe Kootenay. This is tbo out
let provided by nature from tho Upper to tbo Lower Kootenny, swinging around through Montana aud
Idaho, avoiding tho 8 milo tunnel
through tho Purcell Mountains, and
thereby enlarging thu market for
coal by way of tlio Great Northern
into Montana and Idaho, and westward to Spokane Falls, ami finally
reaching Kootenoy Like by rail or
river from limner's Ferry.
now nndor construction, is a littlo
segment of ronI which his uo rail
connection cast, west, north or south,
and over which uo train will have
occasion lo run after rivor navigation
closes till it opuus again in the
spring, and which will ba troubled
to earn the interest on its mortgage
bonds, and perhaps even its running
expenses. Vory little can be said In
ils bnhiilf as a milinml Kolmme until
it is connected northward with tho
0. P. R, at Rovelstoko or southward
with the Spokane k Northern,
which the charier describes as the
"Farwell k Nelson," was endowed
with a largo Ian 1 grant and mineral
royalty last winter, and is the only
road on Canadian soil which ii absolutely necessary, not only for controlling the ore freights of K lotenay
lake, but for all other collateral interests connected directly or in-l
directly with mining iu that section,
The ehoice of its location rests with
the C. P. li. aud must be either
down the Columbia by the way of
Sproat, or through tin Lardeau
puss direct lo Kootenay Lako. Tlie
latter route is without doubt the one
which will bo chosen. . Its shortness
recommends it, ai it is only 85 miles
to the lake, whereas by the rivor
route it is fully 200. It is the mineral line anl taps a new district believed to bo immensely rich, nud
from which the company will derive
a mineral royalty. It is a fairly
good lino to build, any objections to
it on this score beiug overbilanoed
by its shortness,and therefore lessened expense of operating. It has
business wailing for it which will
grow into grand proportions before
the road can reach it. It is in fact
the lino which shonll havo been
built iu preference to the Columbia
k Kootenay. It could have been
constructed nearly as quick and at
proportionately less expense! because
its source of supply would have been
from its awu track at Revelstoke,
instead of over 15U miles of uncertain river transportation, and be-
si les laborers could have boon depended upon at this distance from
tho boundary.
Tho outcome of all this trouble in
regard to Kootenay Railways will
probably be, that the C. P. R, will
desire to have a oonnootiou wilb tho
Spokane k Northern at the boundary, and that th? track will he extended from Sproat to that point; that
the Farwell k. Nelson road will vouch
Nelson by way of the L -.rdcau Pasa
aud Kooteuny Lake and Outlet, thus
forming a direct connection between
Revelstoke and Spokane Falls, and
accommodating all tho intermediate
mining localities.
This solution of matters will give
to the Columbia and Kootenay a value it would not otherwise possess,
and tho exultant loyalty which was
quite omnipresent when the Spokane
k Northern wished to cross the border from the south, will cheerfully
acquiesce when the Canadian Pacific
asks for the privilege of crossing it
from the uorth.
Columbia Kiver Navigation.
Although it is now two months
before river navigation should close,
it is becoming doubtful whether tbe
Lyltou will ho able to ruu much
longer, owing to low water between
Rovelstoko and the Upper lake. If
the water could be couUnaJ to ono
channel, instead of spreading over
ami barely covering tho bIuIIow bars
navigation would bo all that could
bo desired for huts of ovun deeper

next year, too late t* benefit navigation for the coming season. The
Rock Island rnpidfl referred to are
at least 200 miles south of the boundary by tho course of tbe river,
which fact we learn from a map furnished ns by a friend at Washington, "publiihed at the office of tho
Chief of Engineers, U, S. Army, by-
Lieut T. W. Symons, revised to

a short turn to the light, and enters
tho valley of the Columbia, which is
about two miles wide.   At this point
the Kicking Horse rivor is merged
in the Columbia,   which  hero Hows
in   a northerly direction,     Frum
Golden the railway follows on doivu
the Columbia river.
The town occupies a beautiful site
in this valley.   Ou every sido snowcapped peaks of the mountains are
visible in the distance, the Selkirk
range extending along ou the western
side and tho R ickios ou the eastern
side of the valley.
About   Goldou   thero   are some
farms in the valley,    A portion of
tho valley is Hooded during high
water, aud this grows a great crop
of Lay, which furnishes good food
fer stuck.'
About i.'0 milos up iho river(south)
from Golden, the valley widens to 5
or (i miles, and beyond the vuiley is
a rolling hilly or bench country extending back to tho mountains.Some
ranches are located up tho valley,
The bench lands aro rather dry, and
would require irrigating for agricultural purposes. AVindermere is a
point about 100 milcc up from Golden, where F. J. Brody has a store.
The Columbia river is navigable up
from Golden fur a distance of over
101 miles, to the head of the Lower
Columbia lake. Tho steamer Duchess
runs en this route during the sum'
mcr season, mnking trips once or
twice a week. There- is considerable
traffic to the rauchos aud mining
camps np the river, A mail is also
earned. Captain F. P . Armstrong
is the main man connected with the
steamer, and principal owner. Mining claims are located along the valley up from G ilden. The trip up
tho river is a most delightful one to
the lover of scenery. Down from
Gulden the river is not navigable,
aud after Donald is passod the
mountains close in on tho river and

Professor, remarked the colonel, I
regret to have to tell yen tint your
money is gone. I. ing Tom told m;-,
on the way np, that his partner did
all Ihe cooking, and he is a man of
rather short stature. The colonel
then paid bis compliments to the
jack-pot, and continued; Now, my
idea is that the stove heats the room
better there than on the Ilcor. It is
only a cooking stove, to be stue, but
when the winter is cold it makes
this room comfortable. Being up
in tbe middle of the spaco it beats it
all equally we]], which it could not
do if it wore down below.
The doctor greeted this theory
with a loud laugh. Colonel, he said,
yo aro wild���way oil' tho mark, Hot
air rises, of course, and tho only
way to disseminate it is to have your
stove as low a? possible. According
lo your idea, it would be a good
plan to put the furnace iu the attic
of a house instead of ia the
basemen t.

strange thiug about it was its position. Its abbreviated legs stood up-
pn large cedar posts, which were
planted in the floor and were ovor
four feet in height. Ibis brought
the stove away up in mid-air, so that
the top was about on a level with
the face of the colonel, and he was a
six footer.
We formed in a circle about the
stove and stared at it as solemnly as
a gionp of priests around a sacrificial
tripod. We. felt of the posts���they

The pot is mine, said the doctor,
as ho deposited bis coin; you will
adopt my idea the moment you hear
it, and Long Tom, who will be here
in a minute, will bear mo out. This
room is very small, it has but little
floor space, and none of it goes to
waste. Now, if ho had put the stove
dowu where wo expected to find it,
Long Tom could uot have made use
of the area underneath as yon ses he
has doue. Ou all sidos of the supporting posts, you will notice there
are hoaks on which be hangs bis
paus'aud skillets. Uulernenth, there
is a kitchen closet for pots and cooking-utensils of various sorts. What
could be more convenient ? Under
your ordinary stove there is room
only for a poker and a few cockroaches.
