The Eight in Little Pamir.
Sir Edwin Arnold, in roply to
a request for an interview on the
fight of Gilgit in tbo Little Pamir,
said: "Tho crisis is ui.uoually
alarming, for one spccLl roason,
and that is tho fact that the
blood of English officers has beon
spilled in this skirmish, To one
not familiar with Anglo.ludian
history and spirit the gravity of
such a fact can hardly be ex.
plained. Thore is a tradition in
the English Army in India, and
il ia hold as almost gospel
throughout tho Indian Empire,
lliftt English blood is sacred.
Once spilt, thero can bo no wash
ing it out, no compromising, no
explanation, save tho moat convincing disavowal on the part oi
any foreign government implicated ia the aot of bloodshed;
and no satisfactory settlement,
except the most prompt and complete explanation, for that shedding of English blood, and tho
blood of its officers in India is an
articlo for which the Anglo-Indian em'ire charges 81,000,1)00 a
drop. Russia has lately made ad
vances there so marked that England cannot allow them. Russia
now occupies the slopo of the
Pamir, from which it will havo to
recede. England's demands to
tbat effoct would have boen made
in any oyerit, They will now ho
made in such a tone that Russia
must heed them and retire fiom
its present occupancy of the Pamir
slope. A refusal to do 80 71.111
mean war���nothing moro nor
less. With the blood of English
officers already spilt, war will
follow any action bhvo tbo most
complete reparation and expiation.
The British empiro is prepared
for war. It is bo tremendou-ly
prepared that no man can estimate the vast extent, of that preparation both in money and in men,
A hotter timo for war, if war
must como, could not be selected.
I doubt that the pgar will allow
matters to reach a crisis, as the
inevitablereeult of Russian defeat
in a war, with the frontiers of
India as the baltlefiold, would be
a stupendous catastrophe tn that
Dation. It would mean that England would roll back odco and
forover the Rusian approach on
India, raze Control Asia to the
ground from one end to tho other,
restore to tho Kbaimtes their in*
dependence, thrust Russia back

Canada's Trade with England
A most reniarkablo development has takeu placo iu the trade
in Irish eggs. Between thirty
and forty million Canadian eggs
have been landed al Liverpool,
and have met with a ready sale
at such good prioep that a great
expansion of lhe trado will take
placo next season, and there is
every prospect of success for tbe
efforts which will bo mado to
supplant tho continental eggs in
tbis market. Special trains will
he arranged for on the Canadian
Pacific and Grand Trunk railways to collect lhe eggs and run
in connection with lho sailings ol
fast steamers to Liverpool. It is
stated owing to the extraordinary
good quality tho Canadian article
has already displaced the eggs
from Italy, Germany and Russia
in tho markets in tho north of
Tho applo trade, to which great
attention baa been paid iu Cana
da during rocnot years, has now
assumed enormous proportions,
Tbe imports at Liverpool from
tho beginning of Ibe soason to
date are 369,880 barrels against
66,728 during tho corresponding
period last year. Last week's
receipts aro tho largest over
known ��� 89,580 barrels. Tho
principal portion of these supplies
havo been Canadian, the prices
of wbieh range from 15 to 20 per
cent more than for those from
the Uniled States. The fruit is
of exceptionally tine quahty, well
packed, und the supply, great n��
il is, by no means exceeds lhe demand,- A ioature in this trade is
tho tact that more private families
aro purchasing their winter stock
of apples by the barivl rather
than from the retail dealer.
Tho Canadian Govornment is
making front efforts lo encourage
tho uniking ot line qualities of
butter for tbe British market. A
few packages of very superior
quality have arrived, and havo
met with favor at tho bands of
dealers. Next yc.r's importations promise to bo on a very extensive scale.
Contracts have been made for
tbo delivery in Liverpool of somo

choice Canadian Turkeys, to bo

SATURDAY, DEO. 19, 18U1.
Tho land question at Rovelstoke is
probably within measurable distance
of settlement, as " well begun is half
done," aud a first-oIaSB beginning was
mado last night in what is intended
10 be an all-round, never-failing agitation until tho desired results are
attamod���registration of titles and
unrestricted sale of land iu the 20-
mile belt. It seems that this town
.has hithorto bad no chance io expand, owing to vexatious and senseless restrictions imposed iiy both the
Provincial nnd Dominion Governments; but the inhabitants havo at
last woko up to tho necessity of
taking theso burning questions in
hand themselves, with a determination to settle them oueo and for ever.
11 was brought up at tho meeting that
whenever the Government had voted
an appropriation for tho Kootenny
District it had gone iu a lump sum
to certain sections, while Revelstoke
had beeu left out in the cold. It
was pointed out that tho only
Government money expended here
for a very long time had been in connection with tbo repairing of about
half a mile of roadway leading to the
station, while thousands of dollars
were being spent on roads and trails
(some of them useless) in other parts
of the district. Mr. Kellie inclined
]a the opinion that tho Government's
duty wiib to open up tho mining sections, and let the towns shift for
themselves. This, no doubt, would
be nuts for those towns right in tho
heart of the mining section, such as
Nelson, where $5,000 has recently
been spent in grading streots, building wharves, &c. Mr. Kollie says
this $5,000 was not all Government
iuouoy, 'put that the C.P.R. offered to
spend $2,500 at Nelson if the Provincial Government would vote a like
sum. For tbe sake of obtaining Ibis
tidy little sum from the big company
ilao Goverumout did SO, this decision
no doubt being hi .ped by a warning
growl from Nelsou. Thero is every
evidence that tie Nelsouites are great
kickers, aud they generally lick to
good purpose. Finding'that Kicking
pays so well, tbo good peoplo of
Revelstoko intend seeing what they
can do in tbat liue. Excessive modesty is a great drawback, especially
in this progressive province.
perty owners of Rovelstoke, iu meeting assembled, that the slate of affairs
as outlined is a gross injustice to the
town, and that Mr, Keliio uud the
Provincial Government bo earnestly
requested to ur.e ever) effort to soltlo
all controversy ia regard to this laud
as sonri us possible, so thai lhc Uc-
Bi'ijtrar General muy be enabled to
receive Domiuion Crown gran's for
registration in order that the tnwn of
Revelstoke a.ay not be longer hampered in its developments by this
givat wrong.
The Chairman proposed an amendment by adding, after tbe words "as
soon as possible," the following I���
"und, if necessary, that Mr, Kellie
should ask for a Special Committee
of the House, for the purpose of investigating tho matter thoroughly.1'

the -Situation.
A public meeting was held last
night at tho Schoolbouse for the
purpose of discussing tha land di

jf tho town and district. A preliminary meeting had been held the
previous night in tbe Court House,

Aftor considerable discussion, in
which Messrs. Thompson, Fraser,
Jowett and Coursier took part,
Mr. Kellie expressed himself in
favor of the Government expending
somo money upon tbo road to the
statiou, and had great hopes that the
work would be completed in the
spring. He bad the good of Revel
stoke quite as much at heart as any
part of his district. In referiug to
the land question Mr. Kullie staled
that it was hard on lot-owners at
Revelstoke to be denied the rights of
registration, and he would certainly
do bis best to remove tbat disability.
Ho hud already made au attempt
to get the matter satisfactorily
adjusted, He condemned the Land
Department for the unfair admiuis
trutton of Dominion lands in the 2D
mile belt, aud staled that it bad
retarded the growth of tho district
by hampering the settlement of land,;
and had also been a great drawback '
to Ihe development of mineral claims
and lhe transfer of mining properti s
at Illecillewaet, as English capitalists did not care to invest iurge sums
in mining properties without a cleai
and proper title. It would appear
that applicants for the purohase of
land in this oeighbourbood could get

through from either sido; lhat tho
Fish Creek trail be completed���proposed by Mr. Thompson, seconded
by Mr. Abrahamson and carried.
Refe, i-iiig to a question of further
expenditures, Mr, Kellie said ho
was in favor of an onergotio policy
on tho part of the Provincial Govern-
inont in constructing trail a and roads
for the purpose of opening up tho
miueiul wealth of the province
A Government lhat could not grasp
lho situation and aid in evory possible way the development of tho rich
mineral deposits of Kooteuay would
not bo worthy of tho conlidoueo and
support of members of the Legislator!*. Oilier Provincial Governments
in tho Dominion spent largo sums in
giving aecfss to agricultural districts, thcieforo aiding materially
iho rapid settlement of now sections,
Wept Kootenay being comparatively
a new Gountiy, tho Government
appropriations had beeu very small;
but last year he had beeu ablo to
securo a liberal grant for the district,
ami he had no doubt that next year's
appropriation would be of still larger
A discussion took place botwoen
Messrs. Kellie and Fraser as to tbe
advisability of spending thousands
of dollars in building roads to rich
mines supposed to bo worth millions,
Mr. Fraser contondii.g that rich
claim owners should build their owu
road*;, or at least recoup the Govern*
menl, for Iheir outlay,
Mr, Kellie said Government money
spent on roads or claims, whether
rich or otherwise, was money wol
spent, as it opened up the country
to prospectors.
Mr. Fraser said tho riohfst mines
in tho diotriot seemed to have a
monopoly of the Government grunts
in iIib Kootonny OisUiui, and he
raised ai. objection to tho appropriation for building a wagon road
to the Hall Bro:,' miue on Toad
Moimtiiin. Ho contended that as
this mine wus a very rich ono, it was
ouly fair that Government money
expended for tho bcueht of that
company should bo repaid at some
future date, in case the property
turned nut to be u paying concern.
Mr. K-llie said the wagon road
to Toad Mountain was built to tho
Silver King, but to within two miles

the impossibility of registering the
