Deputy MinisM of Fisheries!
Fisheries Department! Ulbiwn, 0th
February, 1891,
The Hints? is Mill adverse to
the granting of appropriations by
tho gaVertimeut for lhe building
of a court house and jail ut Rcv-
elsloke and for tho improvement
of tho Big Bond trail.   It pays:
"'lhe mi'joiity of Iho people of
" WiSt KoOtenuy do not ask for
'��� the expenditure ol 87000 for a
" court house, and jail unywheio
'��� in tho district,   lor tho good
" reason that they do not know
'' whether iho centro if popula-
" tion will bo at RevelBloUe, or nt
" somo point on Kootenay Lako.
���'At present  Nelson,  and  not
" Revelstoke,   is   the   centro   of
" population."   Then by a lot of
figures exaggerating tho popula.
lion of tho mining camps and
saw mills in tho lower country,
tries   to prove what it asserts.
Tbis is just what  wc expected.
Its iiri'iiynf  figures nbd absurd
claim docs not alter the f.act, however, that Revelstoko is now the
geographical centro  of the district, the most c.'.?.i',y accessible
point from all parts of tlie district;
und the centre of population loo,
even admitting that the Minor's
estimate el the population of the
lower part ol the country is not
considerably padded.   Tho gov*
ernment offices here, though the
most important in lbe interior,
doing more lusiucss than oven
Kuuiloops, are mere shut lis, and
io allow them to remain bo, would
be a disgrace lo the government
und ������ un   injustice   to   the  community.   To curvy oh tho business offcotively the officers require
proper   acioiiiinodation   lind facilities, and thero is little doubt
such will be obtained,   Thin lo
build  in  connection With such
offices, a court louse and jail. Us
is tho general custom, will not
largely increase the cost of construction, and will bo the only
way of mooting tbe neods of the
country, To wait until the centre
of population is finally determined uccording to Ihe Miner's plan,
would be lo writ until doomsday,
for as tlio country is opened up
there will always be more or Icbs
change going ou.  It ie sufficient
that Ibo  district  now requires
such   accommodation   for   tho
proper administration of public
affairs. . . . The Miner seems to
have a special aversion to the
Big  Bend country,  and would
ridicule lhe idea of un appropriation of $2000 to improve the
trail to the mine? of that part of
the district,  This aversion exists
only because tbe Rig Rend is not
iributaiy   to  Nelson.   If such
diggings cxislod in the neighborhood of lhat hamlet, they would
belauded ly tho Miner us the
most promising on earth,   For
long  years  tlichO placer mines
have yildcd a golden harvest to
those who  have worked thorn,
and will yet pay handsomely,
especially   when  worked  on  a
laigo bciiIo by modem methods.
As ihe trail is ut present, miners
find grout difficulty in packing in
their supplies, and ibis will not
bo possible much lunger, if ut
least ono new bridge is not built,
and  tho Iruil cotiBidcmbly im
proved.  Many thousands of dollars havo been expended in opon<
ing up olaiins lhat arc not paying
yet, but which will undoubtedly
reward well those who huve becu
enterprising enough to undertake
their development.  To allow the
trail io remain us it in ut present
, would be j radically lo prohibit
liirilior work on tliOBOclaims,nlld
would bo a great injustice to tho
men engaged in working those
mines, The Big Bend, too, offers
it promising field for prospectors,
Ior rich float quartz in picked up
all through lire country; and it
iB irtt improbable that it may yet
rival even lhe quuriss mines of
the Lakes country. The government will take into consideration
these facts, notwithstanding iho
twaddlo of the Miner, and the
appropriations asked for will bo
si'ine time, they do no believe in
allowing I'lovelitoke te be slight -
ul, Wo bolieve in making our
needs known, and insisting on
gollihg what wc arc entitled lo,

pert of tho protective policy of
tho govornment', whilo tho tural
districts, especially   of  Ontario

in the contest, but it is doubtful,
