The enterpriee whi-sh the Dominion
Government is manifesting  in seeking cut channels of trade for Canadian
oommoditus, tho markets for whjeh
have been cut  off by the American
tariff, is well shows in a little pvbli-
cation (if  a dozen  pages   on   "The
I .Egg and  Poultry Trade," wbieh   is
headed "Commercial Uulletiu, No.
. 1."   After diving a series of   tables
; eoeaptii'iug tho importations of ..p-0u
into Great Biitai'i   ��ml   the   United
States, tbt conclusion is drawn that
the former country requires six
timet more than tht hitter; and
that the distance from Canada and
the sea voyage are not bars to sue-
ceisful eompetition. In fact, that
both eggs and poultry can be plated
on tkt English market at a paying
The Miner intimates that the Star
in stating that the business men oi
Kootonay Lake should be able next
summer to pare base goods at Hevei-
steke to better advantage than at
Spokane Falls, is dis.-uisiug that
which is "improbable," and that
such disouision it oar strong poiut.
If the Miner'a belief in the improbability of our discussions has become
ao firmly fixed as to bo a matter of
inbred and perhaps conscientious
belief, we wiil not attempt to disturb
it. We will however recall a few of
the etatenienta of our artioles to sea
wherein they may lie liuble to tht
Wt said, in substance, that the
Sual arbiter in bushiest matters is
"prnnt and loss," nud that Canadian merchants sill buy their goods in
Canadian markets when they cau
save moaey by doing so, and that
they will even buy tt home when
the conditions are equal. We do not
bis y.heicia Ihoso statenmnte are liable to the reprtmeh of improbability.
Again,���We stated that the obstacle of expansive transportation by
trail between Spro.it ami Nelsou was
| soon t�� be removed, aud that tht
question would ba tested whether
| ths C. P. R. and the Steamboat Co,
will regulate freight charges ao that
it wiil be possible for the morohanta
ef Canada to supply Southern Kootonay. And that if any changes iu
the tariff wore necessary to make tht
businejs ei that section nitre secure
to tho Dominion tlma it is at present, the Finance Minister at Ottawa
knew how itcould be accomplished,
We see uothinj flagrantly impreb'
able in this,
Again, wo said,���It it certain that
distant markets, requiring tiaia in
ordering, necessitating dolay iu transport, would uot be piitroimed, if
the demaad oould beat wellsapplied
at ReveUoke. And if equal quail-
ties of goods can be obtained here
as cheaply and us promptly as at
Spokast Falls, llevolstoke will become the soirct of supply of the
Kooteuay Lake region, lo not this
Again,���It is not only whut Rev-
thinks wants, hilt it is what ail Canadian trade iltertnts damaad, to bt
placed at least upou an equal footing
with Spokane Falls, or any other
Ameiicau city which aspires to compete for tho business of Kooltuay
Lain.   Is this utrtasouahle ?
Tht Miner Bays : As Him stocks of
goods at Ainawoi Hi nud Nelson art
h.],;�� iii.ii�� at Revelstoke, can the
Stab give any good reason why
these places, or 8pr ���il ovcH, should
] act be able to tell goods to Iievelstoke? Yes, wi know of two good
reasons, at least,���wi can buy them
cheaper, and wt huvt tbt authority
of the Miutr for listing that thtrt is
not half enough grub in Ainsworth
and Nelson to last them through tht
winter, On tha contrary "evuLtoke
hat been shipping, and will ooalinue
to ship down the river as long
as navigation rtmuins open. Have
yti anything you are willing te Bill?
Kothiug? Not oven whiskey��� which
ia nitisupposed to be grub?
Hal tht Miner tlatii thut next
iirnmer Kotteuiy Like   will be a
competitive point, whilst Revelstoke
will not. It has doubtleis kept
track of the tariff revolution wbieh
has overturned the entiro business
world, and brought anathemas
upon tho United Slates from
all quarters of tha oivilized
globe. It in ne.iv Sir John's turn,
aud is it to bt supposed that be will
not make the boundary liae, where
Canadian interests are to be protected
like one of thono electric tables
which are altogether unsafe to trend
upon or oTou tor.ch? If the Canadian
tariff ii increased to meet tho U. S.
ratts, and transportation oharges
not correspondingly advanotd, wo
tie not iniba ic Improbable that the

Prof.   Silvernail's   Trip
li ootcnay.
On Monday evening, August lib,
iho party lock the atuamtr Lytton at
Rivtlstoke, and after a plissant trip
amid glorious soontry, for 156 miles
down the ii vi r tho lauding was
reached nt sundown, Mr. Marpolo,
Mr. Duehesnuy and Prof, Silvernail
boarded tho hurrioant dock of cay-
O0S8.1 along Ihe
liKAtni'i t. KCOTEBAI,
toward Nelson. Thin is Mr. Silver-
nail's happy disoription of that trip:
"That ride was one of the pleasantost
tspisodoi in my piscatorial life. The
B'onery along the river was so beautiful thut I frequently stopped my
horse lo adKii'9 the swift swirl of
t! e waters ua thoy Oftrue dashing over
the falls and eddies, about, rocky
point*, foaui-spatieied and majestic
Tho water of the rivor is by far the
must beautiful I over saw. The vol-
uao, tspiciiilly early iu the leason,
is muth greater than that of the
famous Nepigon, which has so Jong
been tho yreut attraition to our east,
e'-n anglers, whilo Iho falla are moro
nuracroui and grand, Tha refluent
onrreats al*ng the sides of the
stream, caasod by ihe rush of Ihe
Tiipiils, also greatly resemble the
Nepigou, and the odd is i aud swirls
beuenth their cloudi of spray, caused
by tbe tumbling catracts us they dash
with deafening thunder ever rocky
ramparts and between craggy oolums
bring to niiml in many [daces tbo
mad tainiilt below Virgin Falls at
the head of the Nepigon, or the
wrathful rush of wavos which sing
eternal dirges at Cameron's or liacai!

with a Hue tied on nnd a shingle fly
attached wiihoul u leader, had been
all-sufficient in the bands of those
who bud atvor caught a trout with a
Ily before. Ho ihon proceeds to
compare lishiegoftbelCootenny with
that of tbe L'aegcloys audtbo Nepigon, inuob io the favor of the Koolenay. In tbe tirfit place, he cays the
the accessibility of tho lishiug on the
Kootenay gives the advantage over
auy he ever saw. It is readied with
any hardships whatever, The track
of the railway is laid right along the
river bank, in eomo plaoes bo close
to tho water that it would not be
difficult to make a successful cast
from the platform of tbe car. Then,
too, the trail is one a lady oould ride
a heria over with safety. Tbe lishiug is dent from tb,j bank with
plenty of room for the baok cast aud
with uo necessity of ever moistening
ihe feet. The back slrctekies and
eddies art easily flshod from projecting points, nnd they art simply
swarming with trout. Antther very
important feature is the freedom
from annoyance from mosquitoes
and black flies. During his tix dayB
thtrt ha saw one solitary mosquito
and it was a very inoffensive eroatlirt'
As to tbo fishing, it is simply a question ��f how many trout you want to
eatoh. The stream is eo varied ie
the character of its pools, the falls
aro so numerous and large, wid the
trout no abundant, tbat the supply
ii praotically inexhausliblt, Hi
would recommend tht Koottnay at
mere certain to afford satisfactory
���port than tht Nepigon. Thtro ctr-
tain points on the latter when a skilful angltr will takt larger trout than
these eaught ou tht Kootenay, aud
for i.'iiiS'jimss nothing short of a rand
bull or a ltcomotivt can mrpass
thtiii, but tht ccorot be mad* and
those that any man ��an make on tbe
Kotttnay would latisfy auy reasonable man. Mast of tht trout bi
caught ran between one and two
pounds. Those he took the first day
at Ward's wort nearly all silvor
