across the coast range forms a fer- with fertile valleys graduating in-

After ascending the stream for
sixty miles above Kssington the
valley begins to assume more the
appearance of a habitable region
fit for agricultural and fruit-growing pursuits, the latter will be confined to the deltas and valley for
125 miles when it will not be so
safe to continue; dairying and
agriculture will then take its place.
The land is covered with a heavy
growth of hemlock, cedar and
spruce in most places, but once the
timber is removed the soil is all
that can be desired for fruit land,
although spots are prevalent where
gravel and overflowed hanks of

freshets, but is not largo, from a

land was settled. Settlers here begin already to make their appearance, pre-empting land, KiO acres

are spent in mental pursuits, literary study into the wee small
hours of morning or in company

fishermen in this city was held
yesterday, says a Westminster despatch of the 21. and ns a result it
was decided to pay four cents a

more hatcheries, for if did. it would
be only s short time before more
canneries would be built. At the

are the seines and gill nets, which
also make big hauls during a day.
I don't believe that at the present
time there is room for more canneries on Puget Sound. The field
now is in Alaska. There is already
a big industry in the north, but it

Because he Could Not Buy Whisky
at $20 per Bottle.
J.   Robertson, a  prospector,  in
the vicinity of Ha/.elton, is reported to have committed suicide in
the Driftwood because he couldn't
buy a bottle of whisky for $20.
Robertson, the particulars say, was
under the savage act, and could
not go up to a bar like other men.
have his drink and fall back. It
made him morose. He ingratiated
himself into the smiling almond-
eyed graces of a Chink and secured two bottles. He consumed
Walker's and took to walking. He
arrived at Alderiiiere and wanted
liquor. Was refused. He offered
$20 for a bottle. But no response.
He found no willing celestial hand
in Alderiiiere willing to accommodate him, so he banded to his
partner his provisions, made for
the edge of Driftwood, and has
not been seen since. Constable
Kirby had three Indians out in
search of Robertson without success.

Kitsalns, II. ('., June 25.—The
G. T. P. survey parties above and
below Copper river are making
headway up and down river on or
near the old survey of the S. N 0.
railroad about five years ago.
It is rumored that G, H. Grey,
who has done most extensive surveys throughout this district.is coining up to survey a route from Kit*
silas ('anon to Bulkley valley, explored by Mr. Williecroft hist summer, and found by him to be harder than anticipated, but pioneers
and later explorers find it a most
feasible pass and shortens the route
about 70 miles as at present via
Hazelton. This would mitigate
very much against the interrupted
steamer and other kind of travel
put the Canyon. Owing to high
water in the canyon, making it
impossible for navigation, freight
and passengers are dumped off
here for two or three weeks' waiting. If this trail was opened it
could be utilized and time and
money could be saved to travellers
and navigation companies, also a
virgin district opened up to the
prospector and also extensively
utilized as the winter route for
mail and traffic, saving four days,
the cost would be nil compared to
the drag, delay and loss to travelers from the interior to   the  coast.
