for sotiie limo pait it would
appeur us if the people of Lower
Kootonay were "bucking" against
tho?o of tho northern part of the
dislriuti in working up as far us
possible trade relations with tho
American towns to the south in
preference to those of tho north,
notwithstanding tho fact (hat llie
enterprising men of this (own
and older places in the proviuco
havo tiotiu everything in their
power to provide for the needs of
tho country, numbers going so
far as to establish branch houses
in the lower couutry that, thoy
might give their patrons tho best
possible service.   With ii view of
keeping tho legitimate trade rjf
the province within ito borders
charters wero last year refused
American    railway    companies
which proposed running in branch
lines from tho south, with the
staled object, of developing the
resources  of  lbe country   but
with the real object of securing
tho trade of the district and dN
verting it Into thu United Stales.
Another attempt will be  made
ibis year lo scctiro charters for
these American   rOuds,  and   to
prevent, if possible, such  fights
being  granted,  the   people   of
Northern Kootenay have decided
at meetings bold at Rovolstoko
and Donald, lo petition tho government   not   to   grant   such
charters as they will surely prove
hurtful to the befit interests ol
| the province.  Thore is no doubt
tbat the lower country would be
benefited  to  pome   considerable
extent by the building and opcr-
siting of the roads, but it is nlgo
true lhat by securing the same
class of communication with tho
commercial ceulros ol the province,    tho    Low'ef    Kootonay
country   would   reap   as   great
benefits, while the whole provinoe
would  also  receive benoGls'  it
cold not when the trade went to
the Stale's.   In a like manner by
tbo shipping of ores to tho south
tho Lakes country would bo benefited to tho exlont of the monoy
paid for Bueh products, yob on
Iho other hand if tbo sumo ore
were smoltod in this province tho
mine  owners  would   roup   an

If I were you, I often say
To those who seem to need advice,
I'd always look before I leaped;
I'd aiwaj? tliirik \t over twice
And then I heave a troubled
For, after all, I'm only I.
I'd ne'er disense, if I wero you,
The failings of my fellow men;
I'd think of all their virtues first,
And scan my own ahorloomiy.gt;
Bnt though all tjiis is good
and true,
I am but I; I am not you.
If I R.ore you and \,M so rain,
Amidst my folly I would panso
To see how dull and light a fool
I was myself. I don't, becau^o���
And here I heave a pitying
I am uo.t you; I'm only I.
J[f I were you, no eplfk-h care
Should chase my cheery smile
I'd scatter round me lovo and hope;
I'd do a kindness every duty.
Ijlut here again I Bud it true
That I am I, and you are you.
I wonld aiot be so very qnick
To take offense, if I were you;
I would respect myself, at least,
Whatever others, aay or do.
Ala* I can no ono tell me why
I am Dot you, instead of I ?
In eLort, if I wero only you,
And could forgetj that I was I;
I think that little cherub wings
Would sprout upon me, by i&nd; by.

The   Columbian    says:      "The
atrocious and mystorious murder of
on uukuowu man, whose body was
found in the river near Chilliwhack
er. January '23rd, and full particulars
of which appeared in the Columbian
ut tlie time, will be remembered by
our readers.   Ever since  tho  date
of the  inquest, Mr. Moresby  has
been quietly working up  the case
and it will bo satisfactory  to  the
public to learn that he  has traced
t;be crime to its  perpetrators,  and
brought the murderers to  justice.
The detective work done by  Mr.
Moresby iu this case reflects tho
the highest credit on that gentleman
especial!) when it is considered he had
absolutely no chie to begin work on
further than the evideuca supplied
by the mutilated body irself.   Mr,
Moresby has been living up river for
the past wee^s prosecuting enquiries
aud yesterday lip, bad secured sufficient information to   warrant  the
arrest of Y)ctor,  a halfbred,  ami
Sheil an Indiau, of Nieomou Slough
on tho charge of  punier.    This
afternoon ho brought them to the
city, and thoy are uow  housed in
the Provincial gaol,   Tbe iflvestiga.
tioua of Mr.  Moresby ttuealed  the
fact ti.it the  murdered  man  was
named Patrick O'Shea.   He  was a
tramp and claimed to have walked
across the continent f;om Montreal
to  Westminster.   Not iiudiug any
employment to  suit him  here, he
turned eastward again, and get as
far as Nicomen Slough,  wb,ere he
met with the prisoners, and took up
his abihlo with them.   Thii  was  iu
December last, and nothing more
is se.own of him or hia doings.
Tbe prisoners were takeu before
Capt. Piftendrigh, J. P., and remanded for a week in order to allow
a! tha evidence being felly- prepared.
Mr. Moresby has some important
evidence to lay before the court,
andii confident that it will fully
sustain the obarge. He is to be
congratulated on the success which
has attended hia efforts in this serious affair."
