CITY COUNCIL.
Consideration of Power Plant.
The City Council and Board of Trade
committees held a conference on Mon-
dsy night to consider the question of
the city establishing power lor tin
C.P.R. and other industries.
The matter was fully discussed und
resulted in a unanimous expression of
opinion in favor of the installation I
power.
On Tuesday night Ihe City Council
lu Id a special meeting I" further consider the matter.
The Mayor suid he wished the
matter fairly nnd fully considered, nnd
the whole proposition, should be placed
traightforwardly before tbe ratepayers su that llu-y should know all
iil-out it,
Aid, Abrahamson was satisfied the
C.P.R, would act [airly with the
Council in the matter, but in fixing
tlie rate they must proteot the interest of the ratepayeos.
Aid. Trimble pointed out if tbey did
not put in the power the 0. P. 11.
must put in its own plant, in which
case the city would lose much of its
present light revenue. They must
not attempt to play the hog.
Aid. Caley suid ihe $20,000 which
tl.e city would have to put into tbe
proposed plant was n big investment,
and they must proteot the interest ol
tl e city against loss.
Aid. Tapping suggested a sliding
scale, lie hud worked for the C.P.R.
and knew their ways.
Aid. Trimble said nny proposal
made to the ('. P. II. must, be a business one, ns, if thc C. P. R. could get
thepowei they required Irom the city,
al less lhnn tbey could supply it theni-
Belves tbey would certainly accept tho
city's offer,
On motion of Aid. Abrahamson,
eiconded by Aid. Caley, it was resolved
to oiler the C. P. R. power at 6c. per
kilowatt.
II this is accepted by the 0. P. It., a
by-law will be put before the citizens
authorising n loan ol .$2(1,000 tor the

DEUTSCHMAN
RETURNED
Tells of Interest Manifested by
Mountaineers and Hunters.
('. Deiilschiiiiiii returned last night
lioin his trill lo New York uml Boston
where he went, to assist the C, P. II.
in llieir exhibit uud supply ol information before the Sporlsmeiis Club at
their annual exhibitions at New York
and Boston, He succeeded in interesting many Alpine climbers and
iiintirs in the Big Bend country nnd
ixpeots a big rush of people to Revelstoke this season. Aniongt others
who will visit this section is A. E.
Follolt, manager of the Sportsmen's
show, who is dead anxious to get a
moving picture of a grizzly bear bunt
and will come to take, a bunting trip
with Mr. Deiitsehiiuin for that purpose.
Mr. Deutsclimaii says the Sportsmen's shows were splendid. They bad
sportsmen there from all parts, animals of interest to the Club, u trained
buffalo which tbey used to exercise
daily, Esquimaux dogs, etc. Men came
from Mexico lo tell of the big fish to
be caught there. Capt. Dick Cvaine
was there Irom the Yukon with his
stories of Esquimaux life and bunting
experiences in tlie far north, but above
nil intense interest wns shown in
lliitisli Columbia, and particularly
tbe Selkirk and llucky Mountains adjacent to the main line of the C. P. II.
The C. 1'. R. put up a splendid exhibit, and among otln-r things showed
huge colored pictures of the Deutech-
mail caves, These, and the mapol
the Big Betid and Arrow lake country
sent iu by the Revelstoko Tourist
Association, attracted much attention,
The Club's shows ut Boston und
New York lasted 15 days nt eiicb city.
Mr. Deutschman fears the main
difficulty in handling the tourist traffic
he expects will be to get otiough puck
burses. To make the season a success
it is important those should be provided
nt reasonable mtcs, say 81.50 a day.

EXCESSIVE EXPRESS CHATtOES
An at tempi will ho mado al the
present session ,,l ihe Hon inion I'm-
liumenl to put espre s eumpanies
under tin- Hallway Coininission.
As ai present conductid much ol
the express business is nothing less
than high-way robbery with the dill'-
erence ihal ii Is legalised, while the
ordiniiry bigbwnymau goes to goal it
caught. A common trick ul tlie express companies is that when they are
given parcels for transportation they
send theni purposely by the longest
and most costly route soiib to pile up
express charges. Express olliciuls
make no secret ol that. Legislation
afl'coting express companies is n ense
in which the government has notoriously failed in ils duty. Indeed, the
postal service appears to work hand in
band with the express companies. II
the post olliee were to establish a
parcels post system us in England il
could In a day break the buck ol the
exorbitant rates charged b) the express oompamies, whereas the postal
department recently raised its parcel
rates ostensibly to protect tbe express
companies. We trust tho proposal to
place the tn rill'ol express companies
under the railway commission, audi
give the public a chance of controlling
express rates us well as railway rates,
will moot with the support in parliament which it deserves.
PORTFOLIO OF MINES.
The Dominion Government are to
be congratulated on the fact that they
have determined on establishing a
Portfolio of Mines to be in the bands
of Hon. Senator Templeman. The
importance of the mining industry to
Canada lias demanded such a step for
some year* and tlie lirst definite advocacy in thtt direction was taken by
the Provincial Mining Association at
itt meeting in Victoria three years
ago. A Dominion Minister of Mines
could do splendid work by taking up
such quettions as electric smelting,
treatment ol refractory ores, testing
and reporting on alleged new discoveries, and in fact making a policy of
handling the work ,,| experiment and
investigation, Special attention
ibould tlio I* givtn to tlie economic
geology of the mining sections of
Ctnada, and bringing before transportation companies facts ol importance
in estimating probable t nnageol ores
available fo; -bipment in isolated
localities.
Foil
DOMINION   BI/II.DI.NI
BEVELSTOKE,
It is to be hoped the Dominion
Government will pats thi Decotiaty
estimates at this session I i . government building lor Beveliti lie Kam
loops, Helton, Rostltnd tnd Fernie
have had their requirement! attended
to in Ihu respect and it :- certainly
now Btvtlltokt'l turn. The postal
buiinsti of tlie city ha- grown Immensely ol recent yean, ii.- customi
and inland revenue are important
Dominion departments, a branch of
thc Land Department should be established and the growing Importance of
navigation on inland waters and
Dominion public w„rki in the interior
justify tbo policy of dividing the province into two public works sections,
with headquarter! at Ileveljtoke (or
(he interior section. As to the site,
the best course would be lor the
Dominion Government to send an
independent man to the city to size
up the position lor himself and secure
a site lor the building In a position
that might be considered tnostcentral.
That plan, il confidentially carried
out, would n-niove the question from
mere local Influence or jealousey and
nolssly would have any cauto of complaint. Kamloops i« i bad example
ol local interference in such questions.
INSURANCE INVESTIGATION.
The terrible disclosures of tlie affairs
of the big life companies operating in
the States aroused attention to Canadian Life insurance and public sentiment intimated it would be just as
well if there should he some investigation on this Bide the line as well. The
life insurance companies told thr*
public tbey courted investigation and
the Dominion insurance ollicers assured the press everything was juit
lovely. Well the Laurier Government
appointed a coininission ol investigation and no sooner has this been dune
than some of the life companies them-
selves give ground lor suspicion that
all is not right by tofusing information.
The companies who are objecting to
divulging information are the Standard Life, tbe London anil Lancashire,
tbe Sun Life in particular, and the
result of their objections is t lie public
will expect nnd demand that tho commission apply the probe to the fullest
extent. No company that has been
doing clean business need be afraid of
the search-light being turned on its
business. The Canada Life has been
attacked in the Toronto papers for
some time and it begins to look as if
some of the criticisms were justified.
WHITE SLAVERY.
The awful stories that come from
New York of the trallic in human
flesh and blood, convey the feeling
that the boasted liberty under the
Stars and Stripes is but an name. Tbe
insurance frauds, the corruption of
legislatures, the stilling by the trusts
of every phase of liberty that bids
dure them defiance, teach the inline of
freedom is but a mockery nnd a sham.
That white women should become tlie
slaves of negro Legrees, aided and
abetted by the police of Neil York
city, should ninke the blood ol every
American citizen boil with indignation. The story indicates that municipal control of police is a weakness
aud a fraud, and that the only way to
have an effective police force ii by a
rigid system of central government
administered by inspectors trained in
the strictest schools ot discipline and
duty. Thc British and Australian
police systems exemplify what we
mean und ii" charge of defectiveness
or corruption hai ever been made
against these systems ol polioeadmin
istration, li adopted in Canada ind
the States it would amounl to a ri vol-
AN INTERESTING CASE,
Pratt v. Loss, Macdonell & Co.
Judge Hulo hat handed down judgment iu the (',,iiniy Court case ol
Pratt, Assignee ol Julian, plaintiff, vs.
Loss, Miicdoiiull & Company, defendants.
Tbe action herein was brought to
recover $1,000 for detinue trover nnd
damages sustained by reason ul breach
of contract.
The defendants denied breach ol
contract, and counter-claimed for
Koods. etc., supplied, $-171, and $500
damages for breaoh of contract.
The evidence, which was very voluminous, us   the   trial   occupied Iwo
day*, indicated that the defendants,
who arc large railway etui tractors and
who arc at present engaged iu constructing tlie Nicola Branch of tbe
0, P. 11,, made arrangements with
plaintiff Julian to clear nnd grade six-
miles ol the track. The figure for
grading and clearing to be settled
between the parties. Outside the
written documents the defendants
alleged that Julian agreed to put a
number ol teams and a large number
ol men on the work. Julian coni-
nienced work with one team and
wagon and 11! men. The work was
prosecuted for about 17 days when
Mr. Macdonell, actiug, us be alleges,
in pursuance of tlie verbal agreement
between Julian and himsell, hut which
does not appear in tho written con
tract, put an end to the contract sum
nuirily and gave the contract to
another man, at the same time taking
possession of Julian's eaiiip outfit,
team and wagon, under the idea that
right to do so was in an implied con
dition of the contract between Julian
and himself, though it wns clear it
formed no part of the written or verbal contract. On this point considerable discussion arose and the Court
ruled that in absence of these condi
tions forming an express portion ol
the contract thnt there wns no evidence ol any custom in liritish Columbia that would necessarily import
such a stringent condition into the
contract, and that in seizing these
goods and horses,selling some of them
and making use of the others, could
not in the present case be legally justified. The defendants admitted the
plaintiff had cleared but unButisIitc-
torily 2J acres of the right-of-way.
The plaintiff, on the other band,
alleged that be had perfectly cleared
five acres. There was considerable
difference of opinion between the witnesses as to the value ol the goods
taken anil sold by defendant. For
instance u grindstone which plaintiff
valued at $3 was valued by the defendant's witnesses at 65 cents. However nearly all concurred in the value
of the team being $300.
At the close of the case Mr. D, Murphy addressed the Court at considerable length for the defendants, and
was followed by Mr Mclntyre for
plaintiff, who also reviewed the evidence at great length.
His Lordship asked the learned
counsel if they wi uld desire a written
judgment, as in that ca-,- he would
have to return to Westminster, where
his library was, el re be c I I give
judgment, or would they prefer an
immediate judgn nt - ply fixing

MINING MATTERS

THK 1.K itoi.
The Miner reports a series ,,( new
strikes in the l,e Hoi mine. The in.-in
or what appears to be the molt llll-
puitant strike, was iiiado west of the
big .losio dike where there Ins been
lound a lodge ot oro ol a high grade,
which ban been drilled on I ir a die
tance of over 20 leet. In ore for all the
way. Its width is nol yot known, ft!
it Iiub not yet been crosscut. It up-
pears, however, to be one nl the most
Important ttrlkea yet made in the
mine, as there is so much territory lo
explore.
The second strike In point uf im
portance has been made oo the 600
toot level, where an ore shoot ol 20
leet in width has been found
The third strike is reported to be on
the 1,050 loot level. This is a narrow
thoot of high grade ore, which has
been proipeoted and found to be con
tinuoue lor a considerable distance.
What it very important, too, ia tbe
fact that on the 1,050 foot level on a
oroncut run north from the win/.e a
ledge of ore has been located which
hat been crosscut lor a distance of 20
feet.
Any one of the strikes, taken individually, it of sufficient importance to
greatly incrcaie the value ol the mine
and add largely lo its tonnage, but
when the aggregate importance of tbe
four arc taken into consideration, it
would appear that it will place the Le
Roi in the lorelront again as a produo-
tr ol large quantities of high grade
ore, and make it a frequent payer of
dividends. It may be said here parenthetically that a discovery, a filth one,
was almost overlooked in the account,
and this is a small itrike near the surface of what is supposed to be a portion of what is known as the Peyton
ore thoot. This shoot used to be the
richest in the mine.
ARGENTA MINES.
Tlie Argenta group consists oi 17
crown granted mineral claims, cover
ing in all about 500 acret, situated on
Hamill creek, about four miles from
where it empties into the Duncan
river.
A vein ol cl-.alcopyrite, carrying high
values in silver and copper, runs
through the whole group almost due
north and touth. Dtvelopment work
has been going on steadily for the last
three yean, since the property wai acquired by a Boston syndicate, represented by W. F. Almy, G. R. Angus
and F. S. Woods.
The mines arc at an average elevation about 3,000 leet above sea level, a
little over 1,000 leet above Kootenay
lake. The great problem contracting
tbe owners wai that ol tramportation.
Although the property ii ouly four
milei from the Duncan river, the only
route wai by way of Hamill creek,
which flowi through t box can j on lor
nearly the whole distance. To get in
any machinery a wagon road had to
be constructed. After some delay
government aid waa cecured, the company paying more than half tbe cost.
The rot I wai completed last fall, and
in spite of the great difficulties of con-
itruction, it ia generally conaidered
one ol tht belt in the Kootenay.
The work done on the property includes three long tunnelt and crosscuts. Tbe average depth ol the working! ia about 400 leet, with a maximum
of 500 leet.
It ii the intention ol the company
to inatall a compressor plant on the
property and construct an aerial tramway Irom the mines to the lake. A
car ol mtchinery is now ou the rotd
tnd it expected to arrive in about a
week.
MINING AND FRUIT GROWING
Two Industries ThatjWill Make
British Columbia.
Speaking of mining conditions in
the Kootenayi, W. A. Jowott, J. P., ol
Nelson, who has been spending a few
dayt in Victoria aaid to the Colonist:
"A larger number of mines are
working now than since the boom of
1893 and 1894 and mostly by the owners or by working miners on leases,
Very little foreign capital has come in
during the last live yeara, but there
are tigns ol t return of confidence iu
the Kootenay diitrict by outsiders.
More particularity in the camps near
Nolion and in the Urdeitu dittriet.
TheOyatoi'Cilteiion group at Camborne snd the Lucky Jaok and Swede
group nt 1'opliir, oiviml by the Great
Northern Minca and United nre
amongst iIip properties tint will be
energetically worked thiseiiinraer.
"In the vicinity ol Nelson nil lands
suitable for Iruit growing arc being
taken up and sn immense quantity ol
Iruit trees hnve been planted during
tho last ten years, und tbe amount of
fruit ni.1(1 principally in Winnipeg unci
ths Northwest Territories is increasing
rapidly.',
ARROWHEAD
From our own oorrospoiuloiil.
The Wnter Supply Company nre
getting things in Blnipc, and thoy cannot he too qtilok to pluiiso tin' pooplo
ol Arrowhead. The lummor monthi
»re coming oil, when a good wnter
supply is uu Importttlve necessity, und
it is hoped not it duy will be Inst in
getting tin- pipes in nnd water laid on.
O. II. Wilkin, I'. I„ S,, bus laid out the
pipe line, which will lm ubout a mile
and a half in length. Another guod
reason why we should have a water
supply in soon as possible is the danger Irom lire, as, with a wind blowing,
should a lire break out on Main street
the result might be very serious. With
a good wnter supply, however, it could
be well bundled, ns the experience ol
the tire at f). T. Chapman's store
showed ive have the men here who
can successfully light any lire il tbey
only get a fair chance
Mrs. Lightburne proposes to tender
a complimentary dance as a mark nl
appreciation to the young men ol the
town for the self-aacrilicing manner in
which they worked to save the Union
hotel on the occasion ol the went
fire.
Arrowhead is blooming int i importance as a railway point. The 0. P. R.
recognise this by the extensive improvements, and large yard accommodation they are providing. The steam
shove] is at work filling iu the frontiige
to the lake between the present truck
and tbe lake shore, and the main line
will be pushed out to the shore, while
between that and Main street will be
an extensive yard with not less than
three trucks. J. Fitter's bridge gang
is also at work here, as well as an
extra gang laying the line with heavier
steel in view of incrensing traffic.
G. B. Campbell has sold several of
his timber limits to advantage and ie
acquiring others.
There ii quite a land boom sponging up around here. Some of our
people are talking of locating land fur
fruit growing and other purposes.
Some more land has been taken up nt
Galena Bay, and all the land along
the railway between the town and the
ranches towarda Isaac Creek has been
taken up.
T. Beech, formerly ol Galena Buy,
ia effecting great improvements to the
land he has taken up at Isaac Creek.
He has built an irrigation ditch for
two miles and has brought in a line
water supply.
The Big Bend Lumber Company
will shortly start up their mill. They
intend putting in a new logging camp
on a limit o! fint-claas timber tbey
have acquired near Greer .ide, half
way between here and Revelstoke.
D. McCarthy is making good pro-
greii with the line two storey building
he ii erecting fur George T. Newman,
J. P.    Thil building has u Irontage ot
feet to .Main street and comprises a
sample room lfilt. by 20ft. next the
Union hotel. Mr. Lightburne hat
secured this sample room, which will
be a great convenience for commercial
travellers visiting Arrowhead. Then
there is uu olliee to let and a store
25ft. by 50ft. This Btoro will be occupied by 0. II. Hume A Co,, Ltd.,
who intend putting in u big stock uf
groceries and dry goods, and will open
ubout April 1st. G, T, Newman hot
been appointed manager of their business, and his many friends wish the
genial Geurgo all success in his new
appointment The commodious upstairs portion of the building will be
to let. This part is being splendidly
iglitcd witli big double wlndews.
1). McCarthy, the Revelstoke builder
had a remarkably narrow escape the
other day. He was working io the
new building be is erecting for George
T. Newman, when a big broad axe lell
Irom above and shaved his bend so
closely it sp'it the cap he was wearing
in two, but strange to say he escaped
without a scratch.
W. J, Lightburno is having the
Union hotel thoroughly renovated and
repaired since the fire, and has spared
no expense in making the rooms as
comfortnble us possible. The house is
well finished and furnished throughout, and well lighted. Mr, Lightburu
is laying himsell out to provide lirst-
clan accommodation for travellers und
tourists. He has secured a lot ol luuiti
which lie baa lor hire to visitors, thus
affording those who wish lo have some
fishing and boating on the famous
Arrow  lake- the best facilities for a
holiday.    .1. I!. Thorn  of Revel-

'    ASSOCIATION
Hold Annual Meeting and Elect
Officers lor Ensuing Year,
Tho annual meeting ol tho Liberal
Association was held at Samson's
moms Monday nighl, when there wns
an exceptionally large iittendanoo. E,
A. Hnggen was called to the ohalr in
the absence ol Aid, Ahralianison, the
president, and Aid. Caley, vice-president, who were attending a meeting
at tlie City Hal!.
The billowing ollicers were elected
for tbe ensuing year t—Hon. President, W. A. Galllhor, M.P., President,
H. Conk, Vice-President, W. I. Briggs,
Sec.-Treas, ,1. A. Stone, Executive
Committee : Messrs.,I. Abrubaiiisiiii,
li. Caley, O. K. Maeiloiialil, W, Bews,
A. Hoblon, with power to add four
others to their number,
The new president,, Mr, Cook, then
took the chilli' and coniplainiil the
Liberal party hud no longer an organ
iu Kevelstoke, and that the paper
resulting frum the amalgamation of
Ibe Mail and Herald was no good, It
was run in tbe Interests uf the Conservatives, Tbey should cuiisider
what they could do to secure press
representation.
Mr. Haggen said Mr. Cook's statements were absolutely unwarranted.
He bad tried it [or live years uud
could tell them u town like Revelstoke wus unable to support strictly
party papers, as those cui ducting
party papers bud learned to their
cost. The Mail-Herald was conducted
us a business proposition on strictly
independent lines. Tbey bad bud the
experience, of Russluiid, a much larger
town than Revelstoke, which was the
headquarters ul the Liberal lender lor
the province, where u paper bud been
stinted ill the Liberal interest und
lied after two or three mouths'
existence. Thoy hnd the experience
of Naiiiiinio, where, with prominent
members like Ralph Smith, M.P., and
W, R. Sloan, M.I'., behind it, the
Liberal paper Ihere hud to be sold. It
they wanted a special newspaper all
they had to do was to appoint an
editor and tbe Mail-Herald would only
be ton glad to print their paper for
them, the same us any other customer. He had worked bard Ior the
Liberal purty and owed them nothing,
while the accounts due the Kootenay
Mail lor the Dominion elections stiil
remained unpaid. That was the sort
ul treatment be got from the Liberal
party. If they wanted to run tbe
Mail-Herald ns a Liberal paper they
could buy out the shareholders.
F, li. Lewis said no doubt they
could arrange with the company to
hire two or three columns ul the Mail-
Herald and appoint a man to edit
that in the interest of the Liberal
party.
Tlie president said lie bad nothing
personally against Mr. Haggen. It
wus the paper he was attacking.
A resolution was then adopted
expretting the Association's upprc
ciuti,,n uf the services which Mr.
Huggen hnd rendered the Liberal
party and regretting the cessation ol
ol the Koiiteimy Mail as un exponent
ol Liberal interests.
The queation ,,f having available
iands in the district opened fur settlement was discussed and it was pointed
-in largo areas in Eagle Puss and
the vicinity of Kevelstoke were tied up
Irom settlement because tbey were
included in timber limits, though
there wi- either no limber on them or
the milling timber bad been cut. off.
it was resolved to urge the Minister of
thi Interior to arrange thai thete
inds thoi Id n i longer be held tied up,
i -it -b- old be opened for homestead-
ing and settlement.
It waa tlto decided   to   write  Mr,
