It  was fully  expected  jihat     it would prove to be a   very  Significant and important document.  The first     study  not only confirms  jL'Iiis view, hut gives strength to it.  It is too Boon yet to give  any   full  ���������report of how it was received in Russia, and when ollicials were qu-3-.tion  bd on the subject today, the invariable answer was that it was too -soon  to     express     an opinion    in such a  Weighty and important matter.  [  But there was no doubt    .iat the  first opinion, of the treaty is a fearsome one. It )is considered to be-.nost  broad  and   far-reaching.  T. e terms "protection of common  interests" and "measures which .  should be taken)" are regarded here  as being  open    to any  interpretation  ������  the signatories desire to  give them;  Also coupled with the use of thc  words "East Asia," apparently applying to Asia and India, including  the East .Indian islands and Indo-  Chiiia, they are considcra to prove  clearly that thc suggestions purposes  to act in the part of the world specified  with  the freest kind  of hand.  This      conviction cannot  but create   places   iu  the big*  cavern   our   reflec-  alarm in Russia, tors could not reach the roof to give  THE DEUTSCHMAN  CAVES.  The more the Deutschman caves  are explored-, the more wonderful  they appear to he, and every succeeding- report brought down from  there'of the discovery of new caverns  seems to bear out the opinion expressed by VV. S. Ayres, M.E., during the visit of the first exploration  party to the caves, that- the whole  mountain is honeycombed, says the  Revelstoke  Herald.  Two weeks ago thc Herald announced the discovery of Mr. Dcut-  sclinian of-another seres of caycrns  at the big Caves, which he at that  -time investigated for some little distance. Last week Mr. Deutschman,  accompanied by Messrs. Warren Andrews, H. Riley and Mcl.eod, all of  Re\elstokc," made a further investigation of Ihe new discoveries with  startling success. Messrs. Andrews,  Riley and McLeod returned on Monday from the. caves and have given  thc Herald the folio-wing particulars  of their iincstigaticns into the newly discovered   passages:  "Entering the cavern, under thc  guidance^ of Mr. Deutschman, at 8  o'clock one morning we proceeded  for a distance ofifully two miles with  no evidence of the end in sight, and  as our lights were giving out, we  were compelled to ret inn, reaching  the open again ''at 1 o'clock in the afternoon.  "The sight,  in i this  new cavern     is  thc grandest  we have over seen     in  our   lives,   and wc never expect to see  anything1 equalling i it   in magnificence  again.      The  walls a.nd ceiling   are  literally covered with stakictics, varying in length, up to 20 inches.   The  thousands    of    feet   of   crystallized  lime   hanging    like  a delicate silken  drapery  is   indeed ru beautiful  spectacle.    In   places   thc. stalactites     and  drapery would   be of a pure  milk color,   changing   from  that  to   a cream  and then figaiu to a delicate shade of  pink,  glittering   in  the   flare  of     tho  light  like myriads  of  sparkling  diamonds.    For  over a quarter  of       a  mile Wc walked  upon this while .crystallized   lime   that sounded       under  foot like  flint.  "In exploring this- new .cavern wo  entered from lhc bottom of lhe canyon where Cougur creek disappears  for the last time. For about 700 ft,  we followed the creek, at which  .point it I.ranches on" to'thc northwest, while wc continued along the  old cavern channel for a distance of  about two miles. Wc did not again  encounter Cougar creek in all our  journey. Branching off from the main  cavern arc numerous other caverns,  some of which we explored a short  distance.  '������������������Oiiir chief object, however,  was- to  discover .the extent of thc main channel,   winch    wc followed,   as  already  stated,: for  fully   two miles  without  reaching the end.

THE ELECTRIC LIGHT  Much discussion is going on by residents about ihe electric light by-  Jaw. So i*ar as we can judge bv con-  ���������.ea's-ng with men ni lhe city who aie  to vole on the 'byiiaw, nearly ail, h-  ndt an, wm favor,the-plan provided  it is shown that water power can -)C  uti-ir/.i'd. If it cannot, iheic ate some  who Llnnk il would not bc adviuabie  to endeavor lo install the lights al  this lime.  There     is     a reeling which is very  .strong ihat there,-.an l<j an adequate  supply  of     water seuiuud nuui lnibii  cneiv for at    least eight or n-nu months in the    year, and that MCLeud's  creek can,    without     very serious expense,   be     turned  :->o  as Lo  renn'oice  , the Bush creek supply at any time it  is      required.   There     is  no  question  but   that  tins can be done,  and    the  general feeling is  that it should lie so  arranged by thc council.   Thc cost as  estimated    by an  engineer  thoroughly  acquainted  Willi  thc situation,  better  acquainted,  it may ho said, by regular     survey work   in       that section,  than any  other  man in this  district,  would not excc;'d $1,0110.   It the council so decides,  they can, provided the  ratepayers     ratify thc bylaw, go  on  and instai  the  plant yet this season.  There will     bc plenty of water until  next June or July.   Before that time  the  work      of tuni'.ns*:     in MCLeod's  creek, which'should be done when thc  creel s arc     low,     can bc done, .dams  built, etc.    An of    this, could bc hone  without  excessive cost.  It seems to be lhc feeling among  thc people that it would be-bel.ler  ecu to suffer some-inconvenience (luring the summer months, if thc reservoirs arc not completed next summer  in time, than lo depend on steam  power. Coronation lakes, at thc  head of Bush Creel--', cover more than  ���������10 acres of ground, and thc outlet  can be easily dammed. Every toot  these lakes are raised means storing  over     10,000,000,     gallons   of water  The fact that water could accumulate    for   lfi  hours out  of  every 2-1  during the summer months,  added lo  the    reserve,      should give an ample  supply.      This,   in  brief,   is   the  belief  of  the people   who- will  vote    on  the   question,   and   the  council   will,  wc  believe,  see thc subject in     thc  same    light.     With      a .water-power  plant wc .shall  have a good, economical system and light can lie furnished so cheaply'that  all can afford to  use it.  With a steam plant many fear that  rates would be too high. Ccitainly  with the feeling as il -is, every possible effort should -be used to install  a system  oPcratedby water power.  If this'is, for any unknown reason,  found absolutely,, impossible, we must  do the next best thing: "but thc evidence is all "m lavor ol there being  ample water power available, and if  so,  thc problem  is easily solved.,  Sealed .
