Costly Tunnel to be Built by

An interesting piece of work to le

canyon of the Kicking Horse River.
When the C. P, It. was built the engineer, deoidi'd In snve a very sharp
curve in the canyon there by running
a tunnel ilu,,ugh the gigantic clny

roof of tliii tunnel connm-nocl to olos.i

however, i l.ai nature was determined
to plug lire tunnel up and the company vu,a forced lo abandon it and

Who owns Sam? The little hamlet
nt Three Valley is quite concerned
to tlie ownership of Sam. Sum is a
dog, reputed bull terrier, of a pedigree
as long as a society lady's. Who is
the owner of him would not only
puzzle King Solomon, but we think,

State ot Pennsylvania, by tho wny)
who would be hard put to it to decide
between those who think that Sain i,
their dog. First—the dog cost $25
At that time it weighed 41b.
6econd—It was brought up by the
genial slorckcepcr.
Third—The storekeeper', wife helped
the storekeeper in the bringing up of
the g"ntle Sum.
Fourth—Mr. Schoonmaker has a
power over dogs that makes theni all
follow him. Sam adopted Mr. Sohoon-
maker, and followed him all day and
could m.t sleep nt night for thinking
ol the pleasure in Store on the morrow
when it would be able to loud Mr.
Filth—Mr, Mundy, on hi, return,
wus welcumed open mouthed by Sum,
and, in the absence of Mr. Sohoon
maker owing to sickness, Hum transferred hi, affection, temporarily to
Mr. Mundy.
Now who owns Sam? The man
who paid the $25 reckons it i, iii*
dog. The storekeeper says that all
the purchaier i, entitled to is 41b,—
Ihe rent is hi,, because of hi, bringing
up. The storekeeper', wile thinks the
dog should be hers, because it was
owing to her thoughtful care that the
is alive to-day. The dog ha,
adopted Mr, Schoonmaker, and, in hi,
absence, looks alter Mr, Mundy; and,
between while,, the Iodic of tlie
village. Now, Mr. Editor! Who doe,
own Sam? | It would appear, on general grounds, that Sam owned the lot.

Emulsion makes the blood
One reason why
is such a great aid is because
it passes so quickly into
the blood. It is partly di-
isted before if enters the
stomach; a double advantage in this, Less work
for the stomach; quicker
and more direct benefits.
To get the greatest amount
of good with the least possible effort is the desire of
everyone in poor health.
Scott's Emulsion does just.

It wits at his birth that tho Nihilists declared the Czarina hud giver
to the Czar another daughter nnd
imposed on thu peoplo the child of a
peasant, A cevolt of somo kind
might have followed tho birth ol anothor duughtor to the Czarina, and
tho Nihilists urged thnt it was to
prevent such a disaster that thi
child was taken from a peasant who
had been smuggled into the palace
Tho story novor pained credence and
tho dovotion of the Russian pooplo
to lho littlo heir has never faltered
on account of it.
It wus thought before his birth
that tho Utile Grand Duchess Olgn,
who Is now ton years old, might bo
declared tbo Czar's heir in enso no
son was born, Tho tiny princess as
a child showed unusual spirit and so
imperious a will that the tlussiii-i
peoplo had como to expect that she
would be rii-clurod heir apparent to
thu 1hrone.
Tho whole court is snld to bo devoted to tho child, und it seemed n

to this plan was expected from
who would inherit, ns I is older brother, Michael, Is in poor health,
Serge, tlie Bocond brother, who
died, was childless. The Grand Duke
Vladimir, who retains his strong ln-
flllOlICO over the Cz.ur, Is lho fathir
of those two admirable young men,
the Grand Dukes Boris nnd Cyril.
The birth of n son settled all theso
problems of succession and doltvorol
tho Russian people from tho possibility oi being ruled liy ono of tie

brought up vory simply by English

Tho older ones am fully nllvo to

whom I will generally term a court

Dear Friend,—1 am delighted to

Yours faithfully,

them, know what their intentions
are, nnd if gambling is not going to

The Council should be wise enough

We suggest thot the city council
tske step, to secure- as on endowment
for the city the Dominion land on tho
west side ol the Ciilutiiliin river opposite Revelstoke. Some day another
railway will be built Irom tho south,
probably on the west side of tlie Columbia river, and that land would bo-
come very valuable Ior townsitc and
other piirpoie,. With a Irullic bridge
over the river, that land would now lui
in demand. Tho Dominion Government lias given such subsidies to
other cities.   Why not to Revelstoke ?
present railway bridge and convert, it
to a triillio bridge. The large mill
now in course ol construction by the
Revelstoke Sawmill Company uci'OSB
the river, tlie urea of land available on
the west bank of tho river and in
the Eagle Pass, besides nccessubility
to the pass for tourist trnlfio, justify
consideration of a permanent nu ans ot
aoecBs across there. It is understood
thnl the site of the new bridge will be
a little north of tlie site ol the present
bridge, nml the C. P. R, might as well
sell it to thi government at a reasonable price as dismantle it. The mat-
tor is one for the consideration of the
Board of Trade, the Provincial Government, and Municipal authorities,
and ive hope it will be taken up in
ample time to allow of nn arrangement being mado in Ihe direction
The request of the C. 1'. It. to be
provided with electric power should
have tho best consideration tho city
council c»n give it. (loo ol tlie
greatest factors in the industrial development of a city is cheap ond reliable power, and if the council could
see their way to got sullicient revenue
to pay the actual present est o!
operation it Bhould be und, rl nken, as
this power, once established, would be
a grunt inducement to other industries to locate and opt rate in illicit)', am! would lay the Inundation ol
industries and manufactures which
would do more than anything else to
build up the city and ensure tor it
steady growth and prosperity. The
Illeoilliwaet river will provide ior the
greater part of the year nil the power
that would be required In Revelstoke
for some years to come, and during
the winter months an auxiliary steam
plant could be added to overcome the
difficulties that have existed from ice
or from temporary shortage of water.
Another point worth consideration is
that if the city does not put in an
electric power plant, the C. P. K. and
others who want such power will
operate their own plants and do their
own lighting us well, thus causing
the city n big loss in revenue. It is
up to the citizens to look ahead in
this iiiiittetiind to BUpport the council
in n progressive policy provided such
can be curried out without adding to
the taxation oi the city.

The exposuie, of silver lead ore on
Jubilee and Bpilllmaohcen Mountain!,
■12 miles .south oi Golden ,,n the Columbia River, wore the lirst mineral
locations to attract attention. For
years before the Indians bid taken
the crude ore found exposed on the
slopes of these mountains and meltei
it inlo bullets fur their hunting expo
ditions. An old time protpeotoi
named .lohn MoRae conceived the
idea ol mining and smelling this ore

Bluntly the Hon. Mr. Pooley interrupted tlie member for Niiniiinio iu an

"The member for Nanainio is out of

Mr. Hawthornthwaite was annoyed.
He regretted to dill'er with the Speaker, und, alter half an hour more, concluded a speech which can probably
be best described in the brief criticism
given of it by a prominent Liberal on
the Opposition benches Talking tlie

lobby of the House, this gentleman
said —" Well, a belief in tlie Bible and
hell-lire may he ridiculous, but HttW-

disbelief in them can be very much
more ridiculous."

matter, of oonnuon knowledge on the
Coasl, where driven out exiles from
tlie Antipodes nre constantly arriving
by every boat. The lilies they tell are
no inducement to well-governed mul
prosperous Canada to try her hnnd nt
fool legislative experiment,.
That a conviction is growing against
any such measures can be easily seen
by comparing this year', vote ou the
subject with thnt ol lust jcar. Female
tuffrage wa, defeated lust session by n
voteol twenty to sixteen; it was defeated yesterday by a vote of twenty-
lour to twelve. Among those voting
against it were no less than live Opposition members, namely Messrs, J,
A. Maedonald (liosslnnd) leader ol the
Opposition, Henderson ( Aslicroft ),
Jone,(Cariboo), Murphy (Cariboo) und
Patterson (Islands). Those figures
convey a tolerably plain lesson.
The resumption ol the adjourned
debate on the bill to amend the Provincial Elections Act wa, notable lor
a maBterly speech by Munro (Chilli
waok) who opposed tlie reduction ol
the deposit. Mr. Munro is easily tho
most steady-going and thoughtful
speaker on bis side of the House, and
hi, remark, a, to the danger, which
the course proposed would inevitably
lead to in loweiing tlie standard of
public representation created a great
impression. He had, he admitted,
held different opinion, nt one time,
but eiperit nee had taught him better.
Stuart Henderson (Ya'.e) put an
abrupt extinguisher on the debate by
suddenly rising and asking the Speaker whether it wa, in order Ior a private
member to introduce a measure affecting the revenue of the province.
Silence followed. Messrs. Hawthornthwaite and Parker William,
glared at the gentleman from Aslicroft.
who Biniled upon them with hi, own
particular smile—that smile which
used to irritate poor Eberts to frenzy
under by-gone administration,.
The Speaker', eye, twinkled.    He
said, with gravity, that he would take
the matter under advisement.   And
the debate adjourned.
The Home rose at4.15 p.m.
Considerable approving comment,
both in and outside of the House, ha,
been evoked by the action of the
Government iu closing down the bar
which ha, always hitherto been open
during the session to solace those who
had, by their own or other |>eople'B—
eloquence, become afflicted with a
fiery thirst. The open sale ol liquor
in tht House has long given greit
offence to many whose views in the
matter are not in general ot a bigoted
nature. It was lelt that the bar was
a relic of days when a somewhat loose
and less dignified standard of persona'
conduct prevailed amongst our public
men—and many who saw no objection
to a eooial glass lelt, nevertheless, that,
the responsibilities cf government
were too sacred to be mixed up with
the kind of spiritual strength which
comes out of a bottle. It is a fitting
thing that the Govern ment should
take the lead in abolishing a time-
honored inttitution which had unfortunately grown to beasoundiil to many
and a dire temptation to not a few.
With reference to the proposed
amendment, to tbe Land Act in the
bill thtt i, at present before the House
a few word, of explanation may be of
interest to the public.
Two changtB iu the pre-emption
law are involved iu the first section;
firstly, a pre-emption will no lunger
be permitted to take up 320 acres, a,
wa, formerly the case, ea,t of tht
Catcade,. A uniform pre-emption
area uf ICO acre, i, to he the law all
over the province The difference in
these quantities of laud wa, originally
intended tu enable Bottler, whu preempted land in the interhr valleys tu
teoure sullicient patturage lor their
stock; stock-raising being llie staple
induitry before the railway, came.
Provincial development ha, removed
the necessity for this.
The second clause of the lirst section
give, the Chief Commissioner puwer
to cancel the pre-emption when land
ii taken up for other than agricultural
purposes. Experience has shown the
great necessity lor such a measure as
thi,, at the right ul pre-emption has
often been used to defeat tlie real
object for whioh it was given, in case,
where tho land was mure valuable tor
timber, towneite, or other uses.
Tlie pre-emption ol loroBhore tidal
land, is also blocked under the new
Act, thus securing what i, often a
most valuable t„et to the province.
Section luur provide, lor tlie difference in boundaries necessary to mako
them conform Ij the above mentioned
reduotiun of pre-emption, from 320 to
100 acre,.
Stotion tix define, moro clearly a
point on which tho prciont Act hat
been fount ,'.o lie insufficiently explicit;
namely the timo in whioh a man
nni't ndvertiso alter staking land
which lie proposes to purchase. The
change obliges hint to advertise iin-
niediatoly alter staking.
S.-ction seven prohibits the purohatc
of foreshore under the general provisions of the Land Act, thus, ns in t'.n

my blood up, nnd aiming my revolver at the man, I shot liim dead.
My act was witnessed by the police.
Several ol them iniide a rush tor me,
und one of them tried"•« led ten

polled in hot pursuit, but. after thev
bud chased iini (lirough two or Ihroo

unnoticed by them, and hid the'i
for two hours. As soon us 1 ve i-
tured out, however, 1 wu« lu'rcstc-l,
Illll a number ol rcvoliitiq»arieo attacked the police and set me Iroo.
"Scenes similar to Ihnl In which 1
took part were (mooted In every purl
of the cily. It wus os though Uu il-
snnds of wild beasts had boon let
loose; tlio iiiilhorilies innile no attempt to maintain order; it was nli-
solulely unarchy, and the Jews wer-l
ill a state of fearful (error, fully expecting to be completely annihilated,
Tho scenes on TbiUKilny wow, if possible, oven worse, the greatest bloodshed occurring in two streets, -Mo'.l-
ovankn nnd Prenbriuhciisknyn. To
describe tlie horrible sluiigh'n' which
took place here is quite, impossible.
Bodies of the dead and dying lay on
lho ground literally in hundreds, an'!

shoiils ol the fighters, und the gronni

eves, und suns   saw   their    mothers
ruthlessly sluUR-lltered by tlio lioitli
gnn mob. What vendor that overt-
body lost his humanity and loughl
Hue n wild beast.
"Tho cruelly of the hooligniw am!
tho police, was unspeakable. I myself saw n policeman slump savagely
on the face of an old vvninnn win,
was lying on Hie ground l»n:,v

up Indiscriminately with ihu bodies
