Referring to tho letter of Mr. Ayl-
mer, discussing the "Last Land Policy" of the Government, wo are not
sufficiently familiar with tho facts
concerning Col. Baker's holdings of
hind or applications to purchase the
same, to discuss properly that portion of his letter. Wo do not think
however that the present limitation
to pre-emptors and homesteaders of
tho privilege of acquiring land, is in
all respects the best that can be devised , As an example,���under tho
present order, the same rule applies
to all grades of land, whether farming, pastoral or mountain, and it
strikes us that these differences in
quality should bo represented by
similur differences in administration.
We cannot conceive why so small a
tract as 320 acres ef pastoral land
could be wanted by any one for
purely pastoral purposes. The idea
that we wished more especially to
convey in the article criticized by
Mr, Aylmer, was that the Hon. Premier had made one step forward in
behalf of the people; and we also
added our belief that during his four
years' lease of power, taking this order as an indication of policy, he
would redress mauy errors of past
It does not appear that the present
Government is altogether wrong in
not reaching this stage in its land
policy before. Tho old order of pro.
cedure had become woven into the
governmental system, and was handed down as a legacy from previous
administrations, The present status
of British Columbia has been gained
by slow growth. Ir. is not many
yeai b ago when the lands in the interior were considered to be almost
valueless. The people were few aud
widely scattered ; there was no way
of getting into the country except
through canyons and chasms along
difficult water courses; tho cost of
transportation, over trails by man or
beast was more than any profit to be
gained ; when mining could not be
carried ou for the same reaf on ; when
there was no iuducement to cultivate
the rich lands of the valleys because
there were no non-producing people
to buy and consume the product :.
when it was thought to be a wise
measure to give a strip of territory
forty milos wide across the Provinoe
for a railroad, which should break
the barren isolation of its mountains
aud eud the long slumbering solitudo
of its valleys. Thus the rich lauds
aud mining fields became accessible
and therefore valuable, and tbe foundation for a change in the land policy of the Province was laid.
Errors may havo crept in, and
possibly Government officials have
obtained advance knowledge of pro'
posed measures and derived benefit
therefrom, in which tho poople did
not eharo. Such things we utterly
condemn. But our position is that
when wo sec a wise policy inaugura'
tod, we commond it, and bespeak its
continuance on tho same lines,
A woman named Eliza Trico was
arrested by Sheriff Redgrave on
Tuesday, 23rd, for selling liquor
without liconse at Field, On some
technical point the oas" was postponed till 25th. Her reputed ,hus-
band vamosed the ranch as Boon as
a summons was served on him, upon
which he also is to appear on Monday.
An Indian lad was brought down
from Fort Steele by officer O. G,
Dennis, charged and committed before J. P.'s Phillips and Goldio of
feloniously breaking into the houso
of Edward Kelly. It seems a littlo
strange that this boy, who is under
16 years, should bo brought down
so far and nt such an expense, and
as it seems on such a small charge,
when a litlle common senso used by
tho J. P.'siu giving the boy a month
or so under tho Juveuile Act would
have mot tho bill. But now ho must
remain in tho lockup at Donald until delivered by oourse of law.
On Friday, 19th, a young man
well-known and lately living at Gol-
deu, named John Heonan, went
crazy, and became very dangerous.
Ho was brought to Donald and oon-
fined. At times ho became unn.aiiago-
ablo, nearly succeeding in strangling
hinisolf with his shoostriug, and
then with a seam of his shirt which
ho rippod up for the occasion. Onco
he managed to run and seize an axe,
and it took tho oonstuble, sheriff, and
two other prisoners who happenod to
bo close by, to master him without
hurting him. He was examiued.nud
Iho doctors finally gave their certificate of insanity, and he was sent in
charge of officer H. Redgrave ou
Thursday to the lunatio asylum at
New Westminster.
I am sorry to report that there
has been, and still coutinuos at different camps along the line, a considerable amount of sickness, and
two or three deaths have occurred.
But I hope a change will take plaoo

from the fine weather we aro uow

Tho Go.vovnrapnt's "Last
Land Policy."   ^	
Editor ol Kootenay Star:
In your issno of 23d ult. you say
"Tlio reversal of the land policy of
the government, by which tho vacant laudB are to bo hold for pre
emption and home steading and
withdrawn from the grasp of speculators and monopolists, is another of
those measures inaugurated by Ihu
premier iu huhulf of the people."
Since when did the above come into effect? A notieo was issued by the
government to tho effect that all
public lands were closed to purchasers ponding future legislation. Why
jump to tbe conclusion this was issued in tho iutorests of intending
pro-emplors, bomo-stenlers, and .iu
behalf of the people?
Throughout East Kootenay the
very opposite obtains, as I shall eu-
deavor to show you. In the early
part of summer some gentlemen came
into our valley with tbo intention of
pre-empting and purchasing sufficient land on which to run a couple
of thousand sheop. Tho "laud act
prevented them pre-empting moro
than 320 acros each, and the last
"measure inaugurated by the premier in behalf of the people," pro-
vented them purchasing the balance
required. This much to the detriment of the settler!
Prior to the appearance of tho
government notice for what yeu may
choose to call il) Colonel Baker, an
out-aud-ont speculator, secured by
purohase, iu the vicinity of Fort
Steele, about 20,000 acres���and for
speculative purposes���as can be
proved. Shortly after the appearance of this inaugurated boon to the
pro-omptor, homesteader and tho
people, Mr. Fletcher, an employee
of the C. P. IL, spent about three
weeks in the valley between Golden
and Elk Rivor, solecting lauds to
complete the subsidy granted by
Mr. Robsou's government to the O.
P. R. for constructing the "Nelson
k Sproat" railway. Close in tha
foot-steps of the C,P. R. representative followed the agent of tho "Kootenay Valleys Co." Mr. W. A. Baillie
Grobman, and, needless to say, ho
took a good big Jslieo of what land
was left, "just to keep his band in.',
How the pre-emptor, homesteadir
and tho poople are benefitted by
withdrawing the public lands from
sale and leuving them open to the C.
P. R. and the Kootonay Valleys Co.
to gobble, passeth my poor understanding. As to the lauds secured
by Col. Baker prior to tho issue oi
notiiie something very similar to this
occurred before,
To sum up.���The intending settler
who tried to purchase laud for legitimate purposes, ns prevented doing so by the means inaugurated by
the premier. The C. P. R-, for constructing a road absolutely without
value to our valley, gets first choice
of the vacant lands, and second gees
to tho K, V,C, to complete a subsidy
granted them for constructing a canal the government has admitted to
be utterly useless; nnd this, notwithstanding the fact that tho time
for selecting and surveying theso
lauds camo to au eud about last November.
East Kootonay may bi an exception, but if what is termed the land
policy of tho government has been
pursued, as here, iu other parts of
the provinco during the last two or
three yours, it does not surprise mo
to learn "a largo area of good farui-
iug liiuds await settlement."
Let nn ever-so-niuch intending
settler come to tho southeastern portion of Kootenay, and tbe chances
aro ten to one ho will pull out disgusted,--for what will he find? Nearly all the bottom lauds owned by au
English Company; a large area staked by the Oi P. R.J Eomo thirty-
thousand acres "set aside for a government park, (I would substitute
snap for park); a number of Indiau
reserves; from twenty to thirty thousand acres in the hands of Col. Baker & Co.; the whole of Elk River
valley reserved in tho interests of
Col. Baker's Coal Co,���and to wind
up with, "The Land Act," tho
higg'ie-de-piggle-de, incomprehensible amplification, called [through
courtesy, I take it | "The Laud
