The estimates of receipts and
expenditures Cor tbo current year
have been brought down by the
Government, and wo are in receipt of copies of tho same, ono
from the ollico ol publication and
a marked copy from Mr. Kellie,
M. P. P.   To rend Mr. Kellie's
letter on the qecoud pige of this
issue of llio Star, and compare
some of the statements in it with
the result of biu lubes ns shown
in the estimates, and see that ho
bus dope bis duty toward this
section   of   tbo district  we  are
sorry to say is  hardly po-siblo.
Mr. Kcliie may point with pi'ido
io the fact that bo baa secured
llio  largest  impropriations, for
roads,   bibles,  etc,  for  West
Kootenay oi any district in the
provinoe, yet to bis discredit it
may be said lie has totally ignored
lbe r, quests ol bis constituents
in liio northern part of tbo diB-
liii't, to g'fulify  tbo Selfish do-
iminns of some of those in tbe
southern poilion of it.  Tbe residents of lievclslol.o aiskid him to
work for a number cf  epecifie
appropriations    for    lU-yclsloko
and vicinity, but not, ono.of these
lias  been   granted;   whilo   the
people of Nelson asked him towork
tor lump auproprioiions, and thoy
get tbem, and a specific appropriation into tlio bargain, ill that
of   ��8000  for  Toad   Mountain
mines road,���whioh in any event
will ensure Iho Lakes country
and Nelson in particular getting
moro than iheir share  of the
govornment grants made.   Mr.
Kellie says he  applied   to  tbo
government to place in the estimates the  sums  asked  by the
people of   Iievelstoke,  adding,
"we shall seo if my application is
800001,6101.    His  application  in
this direction bus not boon successful,   but  tbo  very  reverse.
Uo must cither possess no in*
fluenoo with tbo government, or
has not oxeroisod bis influence at
all in our bclmlf.   While Nelao.n
geU 81000 for a jail, which no
doubt it requires, and is entitled
to; and Ainsworth likewise gets
8800 for a lock-up, ilevolstoke
only guts $500 for "repairs"- to
tbe rickety old barracks uqcd ub
a   court  houso  und  jail.    Mr.
Killio could not possibly have
preienleii tbo needri el ibo district
iu this lespeot in their proper
light, or the result of his requests
would have boon very different,
and tho Bum of ��5000 for a court
Louse und jail hero would havo
been granted. Mr. Keliio atatcs
that be bus not boen unduly in.
flucnood by tho Minor, or Mr.
Houston; yet Irom bis notion it
would appear us if ho had been
made a VOlitublo cut's paw by
that gentleman, for whom he
professos "groat respect aud ad
miration;" and lor whom he
lurijs around and plays ii,to lbe
hands of thoso who strenuously
opposed his election ns mom ber
for tho district. Our changeable member's notion with io-
gard to bis notice ro asking the
Dominion. Government to place
an export duty on raw ores, and
Ids shilling bis position until 0|)a
posed to much notion, is another
evidence that ho takes bis polilicB
from Nelson, from wbonco word
wan sent him to withdraw tho
resolution. If any legislation is
requi'cd in this direotion, it will
have to como through Mr, Mara,
who certainly will not bold up
hh thumbs at the command Of
the Miner. We had every faith
in Mr, Kellie, doing his dijty with
regard to the petitions from lice
notwithstanding the fact that ho
did not acknowledge tho receipt
of the Bumo as be did those from
Nelson; but the result of his endeavors in our behalf do not
jn t ly the trust reposed in him.
The amounts asked for by the
people of I'ovelstoko for road
improvements will hive to bo ex.
pended from the 8 8,000 appro*
priates for tho whole district; but
it would havo aided tbe commissioner materially in bis work and
would have been infinitely more
satisfactory to tbo pooplo of tbo
northern part of tbo district, had
Mr, Kellie secured ibo appropriations as asked, and no injustice
would have been done anyone, or
any part of the district. Mr.
Kellie bag shown himself a worker, but whether intentionally or
otherwise, certainly not a worker
iu the interests of Ilovelstoke,
On tlio motion of Col, Baker, a
resolution was pissed in llio local
legislature to petition the lieutenant-governor to moyo the Dom*
inion Government to appoint a
county court judge for tbe dis-
tricl of East and Wed Kootenay.
Tbe rapidly increasing judicial
work oi the district will mi<loiib>-
tcdly require tho undivided aU
lection of n judge; but a court
house will bo required in West
Kooteray before a judge is ap��

Mr, R. M. MoGowan, traveller for
J. \, Griffin & Co., of Winuipog,
who has charge of tho Wilson estate
here, returned to town Tuesday after
an absence of ono mouth, during
which time he made a trip to Ainsworth, goiug around by tho coast
and from the Northern Pacific in by
way of Marcus,
Mr. MeGowan mildly but (Irmly
assersts that bo will nniko no miro
such trips, lie had tunny thrilling
experiences, which ho will no doubt
narrate with pride by his ain lire-
side in the prairie province, in tbe
long nights to come, when he shall
have retired from the road to enjoy
case aud comfort, etc.
Mr. MeGowan left hero on tho
22nd of February, Of oourso ho
had a pleasant journey until ho
reached Marcus, When he arrived
at tbat plaoo be was informed that
the roads wero then iinpausablo, tbe
mail carrier and another party having had to turn back. Mr. Mac.
persuaded tlio owner of "the best
horso in Marcus" tbat he bad to
mako Ainsworth, mountod bis docile
descpndaut of the groat Spokane
steeds, and in company with a guide
mado his first long and rough jour-
Uey in tho saddle. Tbo Dalles was
reached the first ilay, Trail Crock tbe
uext, Bprout lhe next, aud Nelson
Iho following night. Ho bad hoped
to lido from Sproat to Nelson ou a
hand car, but of course tbat lux iry
was out of tho question.
From Nelson to Ainsworth was a ���
two days' trip on foot, over ioe, Bob
Yule's ran h being tbo haven of rest
between these upjntfl. Tbe walking
was very b.v.1, and dangerous too, as
tbo warm spiing* along tho Lke
made many troaoherouo openings iu
the ice.
After completing bis work of taking stock of the Wilson estate at
Ainsworth, Mr. Ed. Wilson assisting
him, ho began the homeward journey ou font, bfing accompanied by
Mr. W. W. Sprague. Before read.-
ing Nelson that gentleman's slreugjh,
gave out and Mr. MeGowan had tlio
pleasure of acting as a pack aniin >1
for both their effects, which helped
considerably in dispelling the monotony of tho walk.
Horses carried tbo travellers back
from Nelson to Sproat, and from
that point thev journeyed down the
river to Marcus in a canvass canoe
skilfully managed by a sturdy Si-
wash, wbo guided tbo frail craft
over tbo turbid waters, (which aro
very low at present) through rocky
rapids and Tbo Dalles. Tbis mode of
travel was certainly swjft, and bad a
chnrm of danger iu it.
The rest of tbe journey was one of
Mr. MeGowan reports having
witnessed tbe drowning of Dan
ltf.-id, iu tbo Kootenay rapids ne^r
Sproat ou tbe 13th inst. Reid in
company with Dave Ferguoon und
Alex Lindquist were engaged in
hauling in tho slack of a rope,
drawn across the river and which
was held out of line by a high rock.
Iu removing tbe rope from this reck
tbe slack allowed the boat ia wbicb
ths meu were, to bo dashed against
another rock .^masking it Ig] atoopi
and pereipitatiug the men into the
swift current,
Lindquist and Fergnson saved
themselves by clinging to the rock,
but lleiil attempted to reach shore,
anil was drawn under by the irresistible current, aud bis body was seen
no more. Reid was well known in
Rsvelstoke, ho having acted as
watchman ou tbo sieainer Kootenay
last year. He was a native of one of
the southern States and had no relations iu this country.

In your paper of March 7th a

Robson, finding lault with mo for
not aBking for money from tho
Government for school purposes,
and inferring that I bud dooiiiicd
to make application to them for
the amount needed to clear and
focce the school block, Mr. Robson is too soon in making f uch a
charge, and il would have been
much fairer on his part to havo

for your district hove been
brought down by the Government.
I will recapitulate what 1ms

appropriated for school purposes
