The idea being to slop the  extermination of the animal  Any laws made for the prescrva-  tioir'oi game should be "upheld, pro  vided of course, they are feasible,  but when such is not the case  amendments or cancellation should  follow. (���  In the present instance we do not  believe the law will be obeyed, nor  ���do we think it iu the power of the  authorities to enforce it. We believe, and so do most people in the  district, that the beaver will be taken just the same as of yore, but,  with this added, British Columbia  traders will have no chance to get  the fur h>r the next four years.  British Columbia is so vast a territory that the cost of keeping up a  patrol of game wardens or police  would be enormous, out of all proportion to the worth of the pie-  serves. It would he necessary, to  send a warden with every trapper,  because they, the trappers, Indian  or while, ��� ivill take beaver, every  'man Jack of them, if lhe opportuu  ity presents.    And then   what hap-  them in our possession, .and instead  of coming lo Telegraph lhe Indians  will go across to the,trading post at  the Pelly." ' An Indian with a  bunch of marten and a few beaver  would be afraid to take his skins to  Atlin or here, consequently they go  lo Juneau or some place else.  "There are Indians .about here  who are too old to trap anything  else but beaver. These men have  their own preserves and look after  Ihem very-carefully, betler-than any  government could. The present  regulation will about deprive them  of their livelihood."  If British. Columbia could persuade the Northwest, the Yukon  and Alaska to frame similar laws it  might then be possible to protect  the beaver; but the condition of  things as lliey are- now makes that  almost impossible. The beaver will  be taken, smuggled out of the country and soldi - the province nor the  merchants receiving any benefits,  and extermination going on all the  Lime.  We have no doubt that when this  matter is brought to the attention  of the proper authorities remedial  measures will be enacted.

Not being able lo dispose of  the fur in British Columbia they  will take them across to the Northwest or the Yukon, or into Alaska.  This is what will surely follow.  And, what is worse, taking their  bsaver they will also fake the balance of their catches. That means  that for lhc next four years there  will be little or 110 fur handled in  the Province.  We are in receipt of a letter from  a merchant at Telegraph Creek,  from which we quote: "For instance; all the beaver, and other  fur, trapped at Teslin lake and  vicinity, will be either traded to  Juneau Indians or traders, or find  their way to YVhitehorse. Those  taken on the Slickine will be trapped by people from Wrangel, that  is, the beaver will be taken iu British Columbia by Americans and  sold to American dealers in Alaska.

Tradition says there was a scarc-  ���   ily of solid eleineiits   at   the liine ol  her creation.  At the beginning of lime, Twash-  Iri���the Vulcan of lhc Hindu mythology���created the world. But,  when lie wished lo creal a woman,  he found he, had employed all his  material in lhe creation of man.  Thete did not remain one solid cle-  ���ment. Iheu Twashtri, perplexed,  iell into a prolound meditation. He  roused himself as follows:  He took the roundness of the  moon, the undulations of the serpent, the entwining of the climbing  plants, the trembling of the grass,  the slenderness of the rose vine and  the velvet of the flower, the lightness of the- leaf and the glance of  the'lawn, the gaiety of the sun's  rays and the tears of the mist, the  inconstancy of the wind ancl the  timidity of the hare, the vanity of  the peacock and the softness of the  down on the throat of the swallow,  the hardness of the diamond, the  sweet flavor of honey and the cruelty of the tiger, the warmth of fire,  the chill of snow, the chatter ot the  jay and the cooing of the turtle-dove.  He united-all there and formed a  woman. Then he made a present  of her to man.  Eight days later the man came to  Twashtri, and said; "My Lord,  ihe cieature yon gave me poisons  my existence. She chatters without rest, she takes -all": my time, she  laments for nothing- at all, and is  always ill."  , AndTwashtri'received the woman  again. But eight days later lhe  man came again lo the god, and  said: "My lord, my life is very  solitary since I returned this creature. I remember she glanced at  me from the corner of her eye, and  she played with me, clung to me."  Ancl Twashtrireturned the woman  to him. Three days only did pass,  and Twashtri saw the man coming  to him again.  "My lord," said he. "I do not  understand exactly how, but I am  ���sure the woman causes me more  annoyance than pleasure. I beg. of  you to relieve me of her."  But Twashtri cried, "go your  way and do your best!"  And the man cried, "I cannot  live with her!V  "Neither can you live without  her," replied Twashtri.  And the man vyas sorrowful, murmuring, "Woe is me. I can neither  live with her norWithout her."  Getting Alarmed.  The direciois of.lhe Grand Trunk  Pacific aie waking up,   not so much  to  a sense  of the   requirements  of  British   Columbia   as   to a recognition   of   their   own   danger.'    The  Week is in receipt ol"  piivale information   to   the   effect   thai airange-  liienls have actually been concluded  for, beginning   railway   construction  on the Pacific Coast,   and   that   the  immediate result of lhe visit ot Mr.  C. M. Hayes and  his colleagues, is  that this   work will   be  commenced  wiLhin a monlli.      This   is all very  gratifying and will   be  accepted by  the province at its face value, neither   more   nor less.     Our memories  are not short;   ihey go back at least  three years, and they recall the.fact  that iu   1904, Mr. F. W. Morse declared   he  was -ready  to commence  construction  at once if the provincial   government  acceded  to his demands.    That he did not do so was  clearly   by   an exercise of what' he  obviously     considered    a   ."divine  right."    The present determination  will not, in the public mind, by any  possibility be disassociated from they  imminence of a' federal  election and  the   certainly ��� that  an   application  will   be   made  for   an  cxtentiou of  time iu which  to complete the railway.      By   no   possibility   caii  the  original   charter   be  complied with  within the set time, and it would be  a little   too raw a proposition,  even  for the G. T. P.,   to   ask for an extension when they had not struck a  blow hi the  province.      In the Bill  of Indictment which British Columbia has against   the  federal government not the least important item is  their breach of faith   in connection  with   this   scheme.      The   attitude  adopted   by   Premier   McBride  has  commended itself to every .Western  man. , There is little doubt that he  will   persist  iu   it.-     The Canadian  Northern are now fairly in the field  which is an  additional reason  why  no  concession   should   be  made to  the G.

'P, after three season's  work, and is now one'of the best  pieces of work of its kind on the  continent. The route chosen isone  which can at very little cost be made  into a good wagon road. ' The trail  is eight feet wide for 408 miles,  cut clean, rough graded, with innumerable small bridges. The work  so far done on the trail from cabin  No. 5 to Atlin and the Yukon, has  been blazing the trail by the Mounted Police, and next year will see  work actively prosecuted along this  section. ���Ivssingtou .Sun.

There is a rumor to the effect that  Cupid has transfixed the hearts of  two oilier well known residents of  the districl, and another wedding  will soon be heralded. And that's  not all. Of course, one can never  tell, but from the looks of things in  certain quaiters, he's trying lo make  up his mind to propose.
