The final game in the rink competitions wns played on Thursday night

one more of muscle than skill, Notwithstanding this, however, it wns
keenly contested from start to finish,
the result being in doubt until the
lust stone wus played. The score
stood Sail on the eleventh end, Kincaid scoring 2 on the twelfth. Euch
rink scored six ends. The trophy is

destructive to fish and the hitler lo
grouse und rabbits.
It was understood the committee
should arrange for the distribution ul

where these plants would provide feed
for clucks and geese.

Large Meeting  of  Mountain
Lumbermen.
Nelson, Feb. 28,—The Mountain
Lumbermcn'8 Association, at its regular monthly meeting here, to-day,
announced that an advance in the
price of lumber is inevitable, but for
the present it hns decided to defer
milking uny changes in the sehedule
of charges. It- has strongly memorialised the Provincial Government to
legalised the Doyle scale in the district east of the Cascade mountains,
in preference to the British Columbia
scnlc, which works unsatisfactorily for
logs of sninll diameter, though it is nil
right for the larger logs of the Const
district. The Association bus also
petitioned the Government for gamier
efficiency in lho prevention of forest
lircs.
The Mundy Lumber Company propose to build a logging railway into
the heart of their extensive limber
limits at Three Valley Luke.

CANOE RIVEU VALLEY.
The en,|uiry made for land Ior settlement in tin- Cniioo River Valley
marks the beginning of the movement
for the opening up and settlement of
the lands to the north of Revelstoke.
This] will revive the projection ol
steamboat communication between
Death Rapid- and Canoe River, the
completion ,,f the trail from Revelstoke! Canoe River and. a* soon us
traffic warrants it, the placing of a
ferry across the Columbia at Canoe
River. Kevelstoke- ie undoubtedly the
best point from which to reach the
Canoe River country, In another
column we publish a statement that
there is 75,000 acres ol land available
lor settlement in Canoe River Valley.
Tbe importance ol this movement to
Revelstoke cannot be over-estimated
and no effort should lie spared to
tnsure the provision ol such transportation as will make tbe aecess to and
settlement of that coiintrv un easy
n.:i-.;.-r
It is wonderful how business is ore
uiul once tho facilities for doing it ure
provided. The 0 P, 11. applied to
the city for electric power, and immediately several citizens saw bow
they could also use such power to
advantage. At the mooting ol the
I Ion rd of Trade Inst night the President Slated he knew of one concern
thai would take '25 horse power,
This, with oibet's, brings private requirements ol electric power up to us
much again us tbo 0, P, R. shops have
applied lor, so that in the event ol the
power being supplied thoro will bo
ample demand lor it, Nothing could
bettor indioate tho substantial growth
and progress ol Revelstoke.
In connection with the proposed
Installation ol electric power by the
city an important new feature was
brought out nt tho Hoard uf Trade
mi cling Thursday night when it was
pointed out the extra cost to the city
of installing an electric, power
(limit would be only between $4000
anil .f 50(10. It wns contended the proposed auxiliary steam plant should
not bo considered us a charge on the
power installation, as it had to be put
inunyho.v to provide for the regular
and proper running of the light plant
in case ot ice or accident to the Hume.
The action ol Mr. Dell, Director of
the Geological Survey ut Ottawa, in
providing on Hie estimates lor the
Geological Survey of the Big Bend,
will be much appreciated by all wh.)
nre interested in the opening of that
country. The developmenl ol the
Standard Mine shows the probability
ol extensive ore deposits In till!t sec
lion, and a report by the Geological
Survey would much facilitate the
prospecting and exploration ol the
resources ul that country, It is now
up to Mr. Galliher, M.P., to see. the
vote is carried through.
One of the duties of the Canadian
Alpine Club now being organized us n
branch ol the American Alpine Club,
will be the building of cabins at
various points of interest to Alpine
climbers, und olearing trails lo give
access thereto.
It would be well il another reservoir
were added to llie city wnter supply
equipment this spring so as to help
out in the coming summer.
CAMBORNE,
G, Sumner was in the city Thursday. Ilo reports an excellent outlook for the coining year al Pish
Creek, The Eva mine is on u paying
baais and the surplus profits ure being
put into development work.
Seven properties will be working
this year around Camborne,

THE CANOE
RIVER VALLEY
Land Available for Settlement
In view of the enquiries now boing
niiidc as to the area ol land available
for settlement and tho character of
the country in Cnnoc River Valley we
publish the following from u report
made for the Government by R. H.
Lee, P. L. B.l
"There is very little agricultural
hind on the Columbia River until
within ubout live miles ol the mouth
nl Ibe Canoe River, where we entered
a valley ol 12,000 acres ol good agricultural land, about one-hall ol which
is bottom land not subject tn iniiiutu
tion, good clay soil showing ten tc
liftoen feet in depth at the cut-banks,
with n gravelly sub soil; the remainder lying upun low benches Illty lo
seventy-live leet above the river.
These are also good clny land, no rock
or gravel showing on the surface. The
surface ol both bottom and bench land
is very level and uniform; small cedar,
spruce, and balsam timber and considerable bush in the bottoms; cedar,
spruce and hemlock on the benches
und mountains, all small timber nnd
of no commercial value. Thc vegeta
tion indicates considerable rainfall
throughout this valley, and I do not
think irrigation will be required; but
il so thero is abundance of water lor
this purpose in the creeks Mowing
through the valley. 1 am informed
by trappers who have wintered here
that the boow is from three to tour
feet in depth, and tho timber and
bushes indicate a considerable snowfall The altitude is about 1,830 leet
above sea level. The general formation is granite.
'•From the mouth of Canoe River
to Crews Rapids, a distance ot about
twenty-two miles in a north-westerly
course, the valley will average about
one-hall mile in width. It bus good
clny soil, with n gravelly sub-soil
small cedar and spruce timber, and
considerable bush. The river is from
10(1 to 1,000 leet in width, with an
average current nl about five miles per
hour, The bunks nre from six to
fifteen leet high, showing a good clean
clny soil.
" Near Crews Rapids tbo valley
widens out Irom one to two miles wide,
and continues the same north-westerly
course to Tete Juiine Caoho, on the
Prater River. It has been run over
with lire, and the timber and bush in
the valley, as well as upon the mountains, ore ii young growth. From
ubout Crews Rapids we left the wet
belt and entered a drier country. We
did not see moss upon tlie ground and
timber as we did below and on the
Columbia River. The soil is blue clay
live to fifteen leet deep, with a gravelly
sub-soil, covered in many places with
one ,-r two ieet of black vegetable
uck: small cedar, Cottonwood, spruce,
and hazel bushes in patches and
clumps; good meadows Irom ten t-,
two hundred acres scattered tbr lUgb-
ut tbe valley. The soil and climate
that  ut the
acres, and is u shallow body of water;
is situated ul nut two miles north ol
Trail Crossing; could easily he drained
uml made into dry land.
"If irrigation should be required
there is abundance ol wnter for that
purpose in the creeks running through
tho valley ovory few miles, ui.d the
Waler could be brought upon the land
with very little expense. Sonic ot the
larger creeks t to out ol large valleys,
The altitude is about '2,2(HI leet above
sea level.
"I estimate the distance Irom Revel
stoke to Camp 27 (Trail Crossing) at
about 171 miles by wnter, and about
160 miles by it wagon rond route. At
this point the bushes nml timber also
indicate a light snowfall, nnd I am informed by Mr, Joseph Null, ol Soutl
Thompson River, who was wiih it C.I'.
ll. survey party through this country
us pucker in 187-1 75, that they wint
ered their stock here und never hnd
over eight to ten inches ol snow. 1
think the climate is very similar to
that around Kamloops, judging from
tho general appearance of the country
The lirst frost ol this season occurred
on the night of September 18th, and
previous to this there hnd been about
two weeks' rain. There wns wet
weather at Kamloops corresponding
with this, and frost about the sn in e
date.
"The Columbia River from Revelstoke to l tho mouth of Canoe River
could be made navigable for steamboats at almost all stiigeB of the year.
Neither Canoe River nor Wood River
is navigable for steamers, but a wag
gon rond could be built through thc
Canoe River Volley very cheaply, and
this seems tn me thc most feasible
wny of bringing this beautiful valley
within the reach ol settlers; or the
trail up the Columbia River, which
ends at Smith Creek, could be continued up to the mouth of Canoe
River, about twenty-seven miles, and
widened fur a wtiggun rund if required
" 1 would place the acreage of good

Alberni ihen inlrmluceil another

The vole on this tied, and Patterson

amendment was defeated by his ousting vote.
The net to amend tbe Lightning
Creek Gold Gravels and Drainage Co.
Act, 18110. passed through committee,
nnd was reported complete.
('OUI.MIUA ASH WESTERS
Tbe Cbiel Commissioner presented
a message from llis Honor the Lieut.-
Governor, being an Act to amend the
Columbia and Western Railway Subsidy Act. J. A. Maedonald (Rowland)
asked that it be 'aid over till Wednei-
day for the Opposition to look into
the matter. There was some dispute
over this, but the Chief Commissioner
finally allowed it to stand over.
The House then took up consideration ol the report on the act to amend
the
I'KOVISCIAI. RUCTIONS ACT,
Mr. Oliver (Helta) at once introduced an amendment. Its principal
plank was the total abolition ol any
deposit Irom candidates at all.
A long and bitter debate followed,
at the close of which the Speaker put
the amendment. It was heavily defeated by a vote of 25 to 13.
Tbe bill was then reported and the
HouBe adjourned at 5:15.
LUMBERING
There has been some misconcfption
evinced in the interior of the province
among the lumbering interests, with
respect to the amendment of W. J.
Bawser (Vancouver) to the Und Act,
removing the exemption Irom taxation
of timber cut on lands whose Crown
grants issued subsequent to 1887-8.
The proposed legislation is in no way
prejudicial to the interior lumber in
dustry. This amendment is only
aiming to prevent the export of unmanufactured lumber to the United
States—a traffic with which the interior is no al all concerned, ll does
not in any way propose to tax oxpor-
Northwest Territories.
The proposed legislation will put
an effectual check on systematic robbery ol thc province by putting an
export duty ol ft a thousand leet on
manufactured lumber ol every description—no matter where fro n in the
ImundaricB of thc province—whereas,
il inaiiiifiii'ttired in Britisli Columbia,
it only has to pay a tax ol one cent
per thousand feet.
It is in reality an additional sule-
gitnrd on an Act which was framed
lor the express purpose of preventing
the forest lands ol British Columbia
Irom being denuded ol limber for the
benefit of manufacturers in a foreign
country.

SUMMER
SERVICE
The C. P. R. Company Will
Clip Transcontinental Trip.
The time card of the double limited
train service for the summer of 1900
has been practically agreed on. That
the service of this year will be the
most satisfactory and the best the
country has every enjoyed.
The Moose Jaw local which, beginning on March 4, will run through to
Calgary, will, it is said, be continued
permanently as a Calgary local,giving
last service to all points between Winnipeg and Calgary. As already announced, this train, beginning on
March 4, will curry sleeper and dining
cr cnle car, and will be operated on a
very fnst time schedule, thus enabling
them to make better time on their
transcontinental journey.
Formany years it has leen the
dream of railway operators to run a
limited passenger train through from
Vancouver to Montreal or vice veisa
in 72 hours. All railway men have
considered and figured on this possibility, nnd it has many times been asserted that this would ultimately be
dune. To understand h w lingo a
reduction this would be, it is only
necessary to remember t hat the personal running lime, mi the winter
schedule between Montreal and   Van
tation from   this province  into  tlie-couvcr is one hundred und twenty-two
hours a:,d fifteen minutes,   Five davs
are thus consumed between tho two
chief terminal points ol the system,
thc milcngc covered in enrh ol the
five days being approximately ns
follows: On Monday, 058 miles; on
Tuesday, 0811 miles; on Wednesday,
480 miles; on Thursday, 588 miles and
on Friday 443 miles, leaving 52 miles
to be run on Saturday. The points ,it
which the passengers now arrive on
each successive morning iB us follows:
Leaving Montreal on Monday, he is at
tlie same hour on Tuesday at Miesun-
ublc, on Wednesday morning lm Is
approaobing Winnipeg, and on Thursday morning is at Moose Jaw, on Friday morning is at Field, un Saturday
morning at the same hour he is at
Million Junction, and within a lew
minutes of noon tlio train is pulled
into Vancouver. Of the 122 hours
oooupied between Montreal and the
coast, six arc spout in Winnipeg, and
several hours arc lost through the
changes ot time.
VERY FAST TIME EXPECTED,
Although the reduction ul the summer schedule frum these figures to 72
liuurs seems beyond all probability,
steps have already been taken in the
direction ol it, and It is stated that
another step will be taken iu the
same direction during the present
season. During the last lew years the
distance has been covered regularly in
less than one hundred hours, trains
number 110 and 117, being su call..I il is
suid, because their running time was
90 and 97 hours respectively. A big
reduction in the running time ot one
uf these trains would be of  great  ad
vantage to transcontinental tourists
and would nlso be a most valuable
advertisement nl the company. The
possibility ol another large reduction
his year is the important matter
Thiol) ilie highest -dliciuls ol the company nre now considering,
A reduction to 72 hours would no-
.-essitnte ii lime schedule of   1111   miles
un hour, On parts ol the system in
the wesl ibis rate lias already boon
readied in tbo i poration of fust Iruius.
In the muiinliiiii division it is naturally muoh Blower, and under no arrangement could this rate be maintained across the continent ut tin-
present time, An spproaoh to it It,
however, confidently anticipated in
the time oard ol the summer ul llHio,
und the tulul nl 90 hours occupied in
the transcontinental journey lust sen-
son will probably iie reduced by ut
least oneol the trains by a considerable
number of hours.

I I.KI-ITIII-   I'OUBlt HlK   UKVKI.STOKI;
The question of the advisability ol
tilt City of Revelstoke installing
electric power was next tnken up und
cliche,! a lengthy debute. The Hoard
were unanimously ol the opinion it
would be n splendid thing lor the Cily
il they could provide olootrio power
not only (or the 0. P. It, simps but
lor nil oilier Industries requiring it,
us it, would be ii great incentive to
thu development ol the city and In
new industries to locate here.
Mr. Floyd, being naked lor figures
available, stated ibe city bud nt pro
sent. 21KI horse-power running tn
waste. A generator eupablt' ul pro-
ducii g inn horse-power would cost
between four uud live thousand del
lam, and a iteam plant nl Hull horsepower   capacity   would   cost    ubout
$1:1,11011 according to the figures obtained, After running the present
light plant t<> its lull capacity—u
demand thut would not lie made on it
for some years—Ibe city would hnve a
surplus of \'& horse-power.
F. II. Lewis pointed out the steam
plant Bhould not be charged to power
as they would have lo get it anyhow
in order to keep the light running
when there was ice in the llll.ue, and
the revenue loBt to the city Irom shutdown ol light was sulllcient to cover
interest and sinking liiiul on tho
power plant, apart Irom the fact that
it would do away with the inconvenience nnd annoyance experienced by
shutting down the light owing to ice.
The ileum plant in this way would
really cost the eity nothing extra.
Aid. Howson suid the mallei was n
very important one affecting tlie city,
ami tbe Council would be glad to
have co operation and assistance ol
the business men in getting figures, so
as to protect tbe city and yet allow ol
a reasonable proposition being made
to the C.P.R.
M. J. O'Brien objected to tupplying
tlie C.I'.R. with electricity at less than
cost and instanced the 'special light
rate now accorded them. He pointed
out this scheme would necessitate a
loan ol |20,000 which would be running the city up against the limit of
its borrowing powen, and il anything
further cropped up requiring lundi
they would not have the power to
borrow.
Mr, Floyd laid the city could borrow against it! wator and light revenue
which would largely increase ill
borrowing powers.
Mr. O'Brien was opposed to special
borrowing ol that kind.
Mr. Young enquired the rates now
charged tho C.I'.R. lor light.
Mr. Kilpatrick said that so far
Irom the C.I'.R. thinking they had a
bargain in tlie present light rates,
they really considered they could
supply their own light at a lower rate.
In proof ol this there wai a sum on
the estimates this ycai lor supplying
their own light at Revelitoke,
but it the city supplied power
this would not be done. As to
the proposed power plant, speaking as
a private citizen, he could Buy the
C.I'.R. found Revelstoke a very convenient point for repair and ihop
work generally, and if they could get
Irom the city electric power ut a prico
that would justify ihem in taking it,
no doubt the result would be the extension of the work done here by the
Company. It was, however, a question of ligurei and tlie city Bhould go
carefully into tlie matter ol cost of
production in basing its offer to the
C.P.R. The mechanical department
no doubt knew what it would pay
them to give the city lor power, but
be hnd no knowledge of that.
The chairman said be knew ol one
industry thut would take 25 horse

Conference at Victoria.
Itilrrviewwt'ils'to the bushiest done
at the conference nl School Trustees
ol the I'liuiuce- which Mr. Floyd
attended nl Victoria, Mr. Floyd informed us the following matters were
dealt willi,
MKIUllAI, EXAMINATIONS,
The first business wus the discussion
of n paper by Dr. Hull, recommending
a medical, cxuniinulinn ol nil pupils
on application lo enter the schools
so thai ihey might i,e examined us to
short or long sigbl, defective bearing,
other physical .lisnhililics and com-
miiiii.-uble diseases. Those ulVcctcd
could then Ihi classified fur separate
medical supervision.
Considerable disciisiiim took pluee
on Ibe subject and it was considered
tbii doctor's suggestions would be
taking luo much out ol li-inds o
parents. It'was pointed out com
nuiniciihle diseases were already shut
out ol the schools. With regard to
pupils physically unfit it was considered their mixing Willi the other children hnd n beneficial effect, leaching
them In sic the otbei side of Hie and
to have linn, mi ity and sympathy lor
the nlllicted.
A resolution was proposed that a
medical cxuniiiiatiuii lie made ot every
child entering school, and periodical
examinations thereafter.
Mr. Floyd opposed this, urging
rather that' each , individual esse lie
dealt witli as it required. He considered that In Canada such a proposal
tl thtt niiide wai not required.
UXIVEUBlTV.
The next subject attracting the
attention Ol the conference wns thut
ol ii university (or British Columbia.
The disouision Wat led by Miss Cameron, and the matter was evidently
broiiL'ht forward on account ot the
bill in the House for thc establishment ot Magill t'nivenity College.
Tlie debute developed into a struggle
ai to whether Victoria or Vancouver
wai to be the teat ol the University.
Miss Cameron urged the time had
como lor the-establishment of a univenity by the- Province and attacked
the bill, with Hie result the Vancouver representatives put up a counter
resolution. Supt, Argue, of Vancouver, took: a hand in the discussion,
staling the object of the bill before
the Legislature was to give Magill
control over the Vancouver High
School and hand over the appliances
to that institution. Miss Cameron's
motion carried..
In tlie course ol the discussion Mr.
Floyd drew attention to the desirability of making endowment, ol public
binds to provide for the maintenance
of such institutions instead of having
them a burden on the tax-payers. The
delegates saw the point and conceded
the argument, but carried it further
and said if endowments were made
(or a university there was also no
reason why they should not he made
towards providing for elementary
education.
Hr. Torroy attended the conlerence
on liehalf of Magill University and
explained the .bill before the legislature did not prevent B.itish Columbia
from having - a university when the
time came lor it.
