Array a  Vol. 3.-^No. 52.  ���������REVELSTOKE, WEST KOOTENAY,  B.C.; APRIL, ,17, 1897  $2.00 a Year.  LAND QUESTION AGAIN  TWO   LETTERS   FROM'THE  ATTY.  GENERAL'S   OFFICE.  Say the trouble is occasioned by want  of interest on the part of Revelstoke   citizens ��������� Registrars ,in-  , ' structions when location of land  known.   '  Regarding the question of hind titles  in Revelstoke two (-(iiiiiiiiitfii'.-itioiis  have (hi** week been received from the  Deputy Allot noy;Gcni'i-;'il, ill, Victoria,  by the Secretary c-f the Hoard of Trad-'.  Ono dc-ils with Ihe resolutions of the  i-ci-ciit pulilic meeting on tlio .���������subject,  the- other is in reply to the Board eif  . Tiaele re the letlei- ol' the Deputy  Minister of Interior,, published last.,  week.  The reply in the first case says tli:i,L:  .VThe provincial,  jointly   with the Dominion, government ha*> taken .-ill step-  in its [lower   lei  settle   Lilies   at Revelstoke.,   *    *' *    The'   arrangement  arrived at  i-s  that anv  pel-son   claiming  title to disputed  land*- may obtain  a  Dominion Grown grant by simply communicating with this department aiiil  , executing a release  which   will be pre-  pnred here" a ml 'foi-vv.-u-eleel   to  liim for  execution."   The  letter  then refers to  the fact' eif  this arrangement   having  " liet'ii .'ldvei'ti.-ecl in IiVvelsteike iinil the  iss'u.-inc-e of c-iroula'rs  to everyone sup-  poseel to be cm   .-my lot claimed   under  ,    F.irvvell eir either poison.    It stale.- that  ' only   four  respenisi's  to  these - notices  li.-ive hi'i',11 sent  in and  these are being  dealt with, aid fin-tllcr, claims thai- the  parties   concerned   seem   to   lake   no  interest in " obtaining an absolute and  indisputable.-   title, such   as  is oll'ei-ed."  It   closes   by   saying   that   " iintil.. the  parties interested respond to our offers  ynii will'see  that  it is  absolutely ini-  ,'possible to pi occed further." .     -  ,    ��������� The second letter' received   from the  Deputy ' Alt'oi-ney.-Gener.il      acknowledges   that   registrars   hive   been   instructed   to   register  deeds to lauds at  'Revelstoke,'.-mil claims  that, the letter  "of  the    Deputy   Mmi-tei,   of   Interior  hardly places the inatterju a fair light.  Jt, further stales :   ,''Tlie',unly difficulty  ������Tthi-i   department   li.'i.-   Had  in the ques-  ' tion of registration of   til les 'lies in the  fact that we are. unable to- procure coi-  ,i-t'(-l. descriptions  of lands granted   by  the   Doniiiiion.     The  instructions    of  the 201 ll Sept. ISnti. we're given to cover  the registration of all   lands  which the'  , registrars were sure we're   in   this belt,  and the title- of which were otherwise  good."  The  board  of trade  is" actively   engaged in --ifling the mat,tci-.   * ,  Improve Fish River.  In ��������� conversation with J. A. Mageo,  superintendent, of'the Kootenay Luin-  liei Co., about- th.- improvement of Fish  River, he .stated that it is a matter  , worth looking into. " Foi my own  part," saitl Mr. Magi'e, " 1 should like;  Lo see .some money spent in clearing  jams anei snags out of the   lower river,  . -below the canyon, which would allow  log.*, being driven down, and 1 think tt  couple of hundred dollars   would effect  c a great impiovemenb there'. But although it would lie a great improvement  below the",canyon,   it   would   be a-still  ' greater- berre'fit to tile- country generally if an appropriation was see-in ed for  the upper i-ivei, I'l-oin the enel of the  waggon road. c I think that $1,000,  judiciously spent on 10 miles of Fish  .River above the canyon iu removing  Miagsand sweepers and clearing the  river, would be a gre.-iL improvement,  and would make it possible to run a  sih.-ill >>tcaiiier or steam scow. It  weuild also give great encotir.-ig.'nieiit  to men with valuable properties Lo put  them in shape for shipping this season  oi next." .  Fish River is a navigable stream  imining through an exi-ecdingly rich  mineral country and ha-- several good  mining propei-lies iumie-elinLely ele-  pende'iil upon it for* an outlook. It is  safe to say that a small appi opriatioi)  here would 1 e of great and immediate  benefit and, iu the course of a little  while, if supplemented so as to keep  the river clear, be instrumental in  opening up a trade which would many  time.- repay the federal outlay.  Dominion Estimates Down.  The estimates at Ottawa have come  down aud show a cut over those eif the  curri'iit, year of over, $1,5(10,000.

Comaplix Mails/   ^  With regard to the proposed 'once jl  week, nihil service to Comaplix 'or  Lardeau office from- Ai rowhead - it  shoulel be shown that with' very little  trouble the people of Ceimaplix can get  their mail1 from Arrowhead, S miles  away, al the present time three . times  a week while the pioposeel contract  will give tbem but one mail a week.  This is no improvement in the situation.  It,is more profitable for the Comaplix,  people tei go to ii little expense to get  their mail thrice a week from Airovv-  he'ad than to have, an office wilh once a.  vveek ceunmunication at their , own  place.   , ���������-.  The inspector should look, into this1.  The owner of the steamer which carries  or- would carry tlie mail from '"Arrowhead to Comaplix states that to carry  the mail thrice, a week will not cost  much more than to do it once. The  solution of the inatter is if an office is  to be inade at Comaplix to give it a triweekly service. It is estimated there  vvill bi'about'200 men tributary to this  office this summer iind it should prove,  to be one of the best of the new offices  in the district.  This argument applies in part te#.  other routes via the Arm.  Still They Come.
