The members (or Victoria in
Dominion parliament, or  behalf
of [lhe British Columbia Cattle
Company, the other day  waited
on lion. Mr. Howell to persuade
bim into allowing a flock of 10,
000 sheep to be admitted to the
province freo of duty, to enable
tho company lo embark oxlcn-
sivciy in the business of sheep
raising along tho Fraser river.
Tho action of tho members in
this dreelion is not amiss, but
thero is another matter of much
importance to British Columbia,
which  nil  tho   members  from
tho    province   might unite  to
good purpose in impressing upon
the government, and that is tho
removal of tho duty on raining
machinery.   Tbo rulo which is
supposed   to  apply  at present,
that a duty shall only be imposed
on such machinery  as  is now
manufactured in Canada, cannot
work   satisfactorily ami  is un-
doubted!)' :i drawback to lhe most
important industry of mining in
British   Columbia,  Tho case of
tho Revelstoko Mining Company
may Ic cited as an  metallic of
the troublo that iB being ocua-
sioued by the present law. Some
time ago the company purchased
machinery, in Canada, which had
been previously brought from iho
Uuited  Slates,  and   when   Dr.
Campbell, manager of tho coins
pany went dowu lo Ainsworth u
fortnight ago ho wus called upon
to pay duty on the machinery or
the  the whole pluut woulel be
seized,  Tho duly wus paid under
protest, and iho solution ot lhe
problem iB anxiously awaited by
the company.   The action ol the,
the ^authorities is most absurd,
and ii   continued  ou  tho sumo
lines   will   breed    nothing    but
and   unnecessary  litigation.   It
is liko going io a man's houso
uud compelling him to pay duty
on si mo aiticle  bought Irom a
dealer, which iho customs officer
had neglected to collect when it
first passed through  his hands.
The officers should know  what
machinery is dutiable and what is
not; but ut present their is so
littlo   real   miuing   machinery
manufactured in Cauada, that the
easiest uud   mom   Bulislactory
Boloutiou of the question would bo
to admit ull mining machinery
free of duty,, and our representatives should not rc.it until it iB
placed on Ibo freo list,
stoke. Tho amount is not 'avails
until June. This disposes of tho
last but one of tho appropriations
asked for by the people of RevelBtoke, and about half tho amobut
asked for has been granted in
deb easo. The rest may ���come
by and by.
There is no great evidenco to
provo that somo Canadians aro
anxious to have Canada annexed
to lhe United States, and it
would appear tbat quite the con-
t.-ary feeling exists in the eastern
maritime provinces, The latest
news ou the question is that Mr.
Mills, Conservative member .of
parliament for Annapolis, will
shortly introduce a resolution
declaring that lbe New England.
Suites should be invited to join'
lbe maritime pro. inces ,and be-
come a part of tbo Dominion.
Notieo is hereby given that tho
Order in Council, which was approved
by His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor on 30lh July, 1890, providing
that the alienation of Crown lands
by private s.ilo bo discontinued,
notice of which was published in tho
British Columbia Ouzetto and dated
81st July 1890, has been rescinded,
and that thirty | 301 days after tho
date of Ibis notice vacant unreserved
Crown lands wiil bo open to Bido
under the provisions of the "Lund
Chief Commissioner of Lands nnd
Lands and Works Department,
Victoria, B. C, 30th April, 1891.
Application will bo mudo to tho
Parliament of Canada, at Its next
session, fir an Ant to revivo tho Act
T>2 Victoria, chapter 19, being an Aet
respecting tho Kootenay and Athabasca Hallway Company,
Solicitor!! for applicants,
Ottawa, 23 April, 1891,
Thero is another mutter which
is of vital importance lo Revelstoke, which Mr. Mara might
have stirred up a little, It is the
question of title lo lauds in Ibo
Revelstoko townsito, The Dominion government has sold con-
sidorablo proporty horo, but the
deeds tor ihe same havo nol yet
been given to tbo purchasers.
It is understood that Mr, Farwell
still claims uonsiilorable of the
proporty disposed of by the gov-
ornmoni, and that the Registrar-
General I'uf'uscs lo issue a second
title for these lands, Mr. Farwell
having already been given a
crown grant to tho property,
This question has been under
consideration long enough und
should bo decided ono way or
iinotli.tr, ami tbo public mudo
acquainted with lhe decision.
In iho supplementary estimates the sum of SJ.'i) has beeu

Mr. Israel Tarle has formally
made bis charges against Hon.
Thomas McGroevy in tho house
of commons. Ilia indictment is
lhat tbe secrets of the department of publio works have been
divulged, year by year, by the
accused, who was paid in tbe
neighborhood of $200,000 lor
his infoimation. Sir Hector Lan-
gevin, who is t-aid to bo indirectly
implicated, says, be courts the
fullest inquiry, whilo McGreevy
flatly denies tbo charges, The
question has been referred to tba
committee on priveleges and
elections. Tbe result of tho inquiry will ho eagerly awaited,
and it is certain no whitewashipg
will be tolerated il McGreevy is
found guilty.
He lias High Hopes for tbo
Future of Kootenay.
Mr. J. M, Kellie, M. P., is in
town again, and ho looks as it
his parliamentary labors had
agreed with him. He Bays lhat
although he is not wholly satis*
tied with Iho result of his work
in the legislature, he is satisfied
ho did lhe best bo could under
the circumstances.
With regard to the Dunkin
river trail ho says tho Stab did
him ��n injustice in staling .thut
ho bad claims in that section of
ibo district. The claims in which
he is interested ate in cast Koo-.
tonay and will not be benefited
by lhe proposed trail, He felt
certain that there would be objection taken to tho approprias
lion, bul bo is confident tbe work
will prove ono of great benefit
to the wholo country, as it wi.ll
open up a new field which ho
bus reliablo information is one
rich in minerals, and tho money
will bu well spent, Ho is anxious
to soe ton thousand pooplo in
Kootenay, oud believes that by
opening up tho country in this
way his wish will be moro than
realized inside of two years.

Locating a Boundary.
The first lettor from J. Henry
Turner, sub-assistant in the
Unitod States coast and goodetic
survey, since his departure for
Alaska in Juno, 1$!), was received al San Francisco lust
week. Mr, Turner was in charge
of a party of ten which wus to
co-operate withji siljiilar party
under Sub-Assistant McGrath,
in determining lhe location oi the
HLt meridian boundary line between Alaska and British Columbia, The letter is dated at
St. Michael's, September 20,1890,
and wue entrusted to tho euro of
the Wells puuty-, by whom it wub
sent to bun Francisco. Tbe
discoveries of Mr. Turner in lhe
hilherlo unexplored region which
ho truyefsed r.rp very interesting.
His observations will cause u
change iu the map of lhe country
between the arctic and the Porcupine river, in which he found
rivers, lakes and mountain ranges
where before, was supposed to Le
only a vast [lain. Incidentally
Turner refers tq tho experience
of Wells, who was forced to eat
his docs. Turner's camp wus
located em Porcupino rivor, 100
mi'es from tho Arctic ocean, and
1,000 miles from tbo mouth oi
the Yukon river.
