Nono of the amounts asked for are
large, and all thu works are absolutely necessary to at till keep up ..ilh
the requirements of tbe. times. Tho
building ut present occupied as u
court house is totally inadequate to
the needs ol the distriot, and a jail
is also a necessity. Since the jail at
Kamloops has been mado a provincial prison that institution has been
overcrowded, and sometimes loo tbe
overplus is made lip with men sent
from this part of the country, who
were made lo do work thai all wcut
to beiiilit Kamloops. Ily tho building of a suitable jail here aud the
working of the prisoners who may
be incarcerated in it from time lo
timo, the government may havo work
done iu the improvement of streets,
etc,, which otherwise would oulujl a
liirgc outlay cf tnoney, The road to
the station will have to be improved,
and to put it iu decent shupo tbo
auiouut asked to be appropriated for
this purpose will be required at tho
lowest evtiii'.uto, The liig lleud aud
Lardeau trails also call fur improve-
meat aud tbo uumtinls asked for
these works is not over estimated,
especially when the beuetlts to bo
derived from such outlay is considered, Tbe clearing and fonoilig ol

thu matter of lire prelection, Rural-

something must bo done to guard
against a repctitiou of the disasters
that have have laid it in ashes on at
Past two occasions. Thi usual gnnt
male oilier towns nnd cities is $500
and surely Revelstoke is entitled to
a like amount. The petition asking
