If it is right to bo lliaolit'iil for
small favors, then the pooplo of
Revelstoke   and   vicinity   have
some    reason    to    bo    thankful for the grants mado for this
end ol tho district, but we don't
seo lhat thero is any necessity of
any great demonstration of joy,
Thero  is ono item on the list
which is a big surprise, and that
is the appropriation of ��4,500 to
bo expended in tho making of a
trail from Rear Creek in East
Kootenay to the Upper Koolenay
lake via the Dunkin river in this
district, a grant equal to $,45 a
mile,   It is true that Mr. Kellie
and.severol others huvo recorded
claims in tho Bear Creek districl,
EiiBt Koolenay, and probably a
very few huvo been located in
thii particular part   of   West
Kootonay, and it is evident that
tho building ol this proposed trail
would open up a outmtry bilhci'lo
almost untried by proBpootora;
yet wo do not see the neeosjify
or justico of expending so largo
a sum ou the proposoij work, und
"immediately, too, when llio appropriation for Trail deck wagon
road ib marked not to bo expended  until   mining  dovclopcinent
will justify il,   The amount of
the appropriation is undoubtedly
cxccBsive, and it would havo been
much better to havo devoted tho
greater portion ol  tbo amount
toward a fund to build a decent
oourtliouse here, or some oilier
work limn tho ono for which il
is set aside. There appears lo be
something soiiously wrong in the
matter, but beforo crediting .Mr.
Kellie    with    mercenary    mo-
tiveB, or crookedness, we shall
await an explanation from thai
gentleman ^should ho cbocso to
it ml which place is sail to be
almost a Mecca to him, Whilo
the oflico is no sinecure, the work
will be considerably lighter,
though Iho responsibilitcs will
bo about equal.' For many years
past tlio judge has dono pood
service for the government In tho
out of tho way mining camps oi
Rock Cv.ceit, Granite Creek and
Nicole,, and in lbe newer field of
West Koolenay, and it is but
right that his faithfulness should
bo rewarded in complying, with
his wish in Ibis mutter, which
will give him tit least fecial ��d-
vuti'uges. ho las i,ot enjoyed lor
long years. What will he Kootonay 's loss will he a gain to tho
Kamloops division il Yale district, and wc hope the judge may
long oont tiiio to re; resent the
Government in llio'while house at
Ku'ml.uops.
Mr. J. Bowron, now Govern
ineiit Agent al IJnrkerville, Cariboo district, will in all probability
succeed Judge Tunstall hero. Mr.
Bowi'uii has proved himself a
very capable officer, and it is
doubtful ii lhe government could
find a more competent man to
look after the interests of West
Koolenay lie has had lung experience in mining.matters, which
will serve him to good purpose

The   Church   of  the Devil.
I went iuto the Church of the Devil
today;
The doors were  wido open,  the
pows were all free,
An usher, w ith bows, quickly showed
mo the way
To a seat will in  front,  whero I
failed not to see
Tbat Ihe alto and tenor were '.sister"
and "brother."
And the sexton  and  parson  spoke
well of each other.
Beside mo a beggar was  munching
a crust;
Behind mo a wido-awake millionaire tut;
A lady in front said:   "You'll par-
dou, I trust,
My offence in  obstructing your
view with my bill?"
And before my slow tongue a reply
could command
Her bead was uncovered, her hat in
her hand.
The sermon was all about  living  at
ease;
It scouted dull erne and for ploas-
nre| pronounced,
Man's niisr-ion  and  Ufa  work was
simply to please,
And  duty  and conscience  were
better renounced,
Hough I couldn't agtoe with quite
ull I lint was said,
Who follows that   path will   be
pleasanil) led
A collection  was  token,  and  gold
fellas fast
As showers in April or jseod com
iu May;
Tbo confession  of  failb  waej then
quickly recast,
And they praised their old parson
and doubled bis pay,
In theory(had, but in prwtico light
level,
There's much to admire  in  this
Church of the Devil.

Elder Gcrranl is a pleasant ap"

f .ce and a general ministerial appearance. Ho took passage at
Victoria lust Tuesday evening
for Port Tovvnscnd on board tbe
steamer North Pacific. In his
hand Mr. Gerrard carried a small
box, in which, imbedded in rich
Vancouver Island soil, was a
beautiful geranium p'ant. Tho
gentleman went quietly on beard
the uloamer, and entering iho
cut-in placed his flower Lox CD
the seat beside him and drew
from his pocket a bible which ho
silently communed with all the
vvuy over, bracing himself oo
doubt, against tho temptations
and perils which constantly btsel
the traveler ou his journey
through lite, especially botween
Victoria and Port Townsend.
Inspector of Customs William
Leiii'iicd observed the reverend
gentleman in his pious meditations. Uu also observod tho
blooniini! geranium and bible.
Mr. Learned determined lo ti ud

was picked up dead which
it, it is said, would have weighed
fully 2,000 pounds. Tho fishermen aro of the opinion that lhe
sturgeon spawnod in the vicinity
ol Sailor Bur, from tho lact that
the majority of tho fi-h killed
were filled with ova. The last

Ntw   African   Republic.
A new interest has beea im*
Carted to tbe question of tbe
future destiny of South Africa, by
the announcement of an intended
Trek to the north on tho part ol
a largo number of suspects of the
Transvaal Free Slate and Cape
Governments, According to the
published programme, a number]
ol farmers there, wbo will num-
ber ns many as 5,000 mon capable
of bearing arms, will assemble on
tbe soulborn bank of the Lim-
piope, between the 15th and the
31��t of May, and will cross thai
river on Juno 1st and proclaim
the republic of tbo north on the
following day. Tho leaders of
the "Trek" include men from the
Transvaal, the Freo States nnd
Capo Colony. All steps have
been by iho advice and approval
of the "Afrikanderbond," which
has just held its annual conference in Kimberley. There socmB
reason lo believe that ono of the
objects in view is tho extension
of tho claims of tbe chartered
company and replacement of tbe
company by a genuino -S,uil71
African movement, freo from all
control by the British Govern.,
ment The idea has been gather,
ed in England that as thu "Afrls
kandei' bond" supports Right
Hon, Cecil Hhodos, in bis posl.
tion as Capo premier, it must
also support him as director of
the destinies ol tbo chartered
company. This may turn out to
bo un entire delusion. An influential journey, published in Capo
Town, and representing the
views of a moderate portion of
lhe Du'ch party, referring to the
seizure of Iho Btoamer Countess
of Carnarvon, has remarked
that tho news of tho seizure is
only lacking in one respect to
make it entirely acceptable, thut
it did nol include a report that
