An old-timer who is about to go into' Big Bond gives us his experience of  the "eikl days" in Cariboo.  He  wits  one  of  the  pioneers who  went to Cariboo at the time'of the  great boom in 1861'.    "I believe," said  he, "that tho farther north one goes  the better the mines will be"'found,and  I think the Cariboo country will soon'  come  to   the  front  again as a great  producer of the precious nietals.,   Tliat  was a wonderful rich country in the  the early  days.    T have  seen miners  get 20 ounces of gold to the pan while  scraping the bed rock.    But it cost a.  great''deal to live up there.'   Flour was  ������1.50 a pound, and everything else in  proportion.     In   consequence,   mines  which would not pay one or two ounces  aday were abandoned. The little ranches  scattered along the valleys, which perhaps paid their owners nearly as large  profits as did the mines, one by one  were deserted as the vast tide of prospectors, traders, speculators and gamblers, which flowed in during the Eraser  river excitement,   gradually subsided.  Afterwards  a  great  trunk   road was  built and still later, when the Canadian Pacific was completed, the cost of-  supplies was reduced,  when the comparatively poorer properties were worked, and the Chinese'are now making  money up there on the old abandoned'  placers.    There havo been ono or two  excitements started about rich quartz  discoveries, but  the cost rof   working  them has prevented their development.  In   the early elays there vvas no prospecting done for silver, and there is no'  reason 'why  rich' ores  of that metal  should not be found there also.     , ,  CORRESPONDENCE.  4* . ������       !*  The following story i.s related to a  .  S. contemporary by a  prospector  IT.  who is returning  to bring away  to' British .Columbia  the treasure trove  de  scribed in his narrative:���������  "While my partner and I were prospecting on the Fraser River, British  Columbia; last November, we camped  near, a"spring one evening about dusk.  yWhen we got our horses unpacked and  the fire started my partner went to  the, spring for a bucket of water, and  the water 'being low he had to get  down on one knee in order to reach it._^  Right where he "wanted to^place his  knee was what appeared to be a stone  about the size of an egg. Picking it  up to remove it he was struck with its  remarkable' weight, and decided to  keep it till morning (it being then  "quite dark)* and take a look at it in  daylight.  What was1 our surprise next morning when my' partner after an examination of the supposed rock, pronounced it gold! We were wild. Vision of  King Solomon's mines and the treasure  of Monte Crista floated through our  minds' and it was some moments before we came to our right senses." *  "Going to the spring where the nug-  gut was found we saw enough to drive  any sane man crazy, for tho bottom of  the spring was simply one mass of gold  nuggets varying from the size of a pea  'to that of-a man's fist. After taking  out all tlie larger nuggets and caching  them near by, we resolved to try and  find the le'dgo. Tt proved no difficult  matter, for, by following up a little  draw which ran into and through this  spring, we came to a low ridge which  could be followeel as far as the eye  could see. Every few stops up the  draw to tho top of the ridge we found  gold in the bed of what appeared to be  it stream during the rainy season.  "On top of this ridge was the ledge.  It appeared to be about 20 feet wide  and vvas decomposed quartz literally  hung together by threads of wire gold,  with now and then a solid mass of the  precious metal weighing from nor 10 to  100 pounds. Te) say that we were excited would bo putting it mildly; we  were stupefied. Following the ridge  for a number of miles the ledge appeared to be the same all along, everywhere  along it being found the same evidence  of its richness. t By this time it was  getting lute'and wc went to camp, intending to return the next day and do  some staking, preparatory to returning  to civilization.  "That night a severe snowstorm set  in, aud as it was already hite in the  season we camo to the conclusion that  the best thing to do would 1-e to leave  for home and return in the spring.  Wo took what gold we had found and  started for Ik une, after carefully making ii map of the groundand surrounding country. The storm continued for  a week and it was with elifficulty we  made our wav emt."  This customers of a c-oopoi- in the  Highlands e'liusccl him a great rle.il of  vexation by their* wiving hal)it<- and  persiste-nce in getting their tub-, and  cash's re-piiii-oel, buying very little work.  "I stood it long e'lioligh. however,'' saiel  he*, "until, one d;iy. Old irc-iwl-fc  hi'ought in an old bung-heile, to which  he said he Wiinleel a new hai re*l made.

'.  ��������� Refuting What was Said at That  /���������;",      '  ���������' Meeting.  ���������?> ^   ��������� o i'  Sir,���������Regarding the meeting held  in Peterson's Hall,.April Gth, 189-1, at  which Mr. H. A. Brown made several >  statements regarding me when' I  was"  not present to defend my name, L* beg^  space in your columns to*"refute  those'  statements.    Mr. Brown' said  that  T  "was no good to the  town," and that  all I wits good for was to prospect, and'  that I did not  own  anything in the"  country.    Now, let me'ask, Mr. II. A.'  Brown how much he   owns   iif West,  Kootenay, and how' much he has done"'  for the countiy '*   ������rThe answer will be:  Nothing.    On the other hand,' I   have  spent ten years time and hard work in  these hills for   the   public, and' have'  spent SI0,000, and found more mining',  claims than any other man in B.C., and'  worked  harder  for West Kooteiiay's  welfare than any other man in it; and,  all.I have received was abuse by many  of' its ' citizens���������or, in   other   words?  law-breakers of the deepest dye���������men  that have never as .much   as   spent a  postage stamp to induce capital to come  to West Kootenay,  but   have   at   all-  times found fault  with   the   country.*  "And furthermore, I own more in West'  Kootenay t'o-daj- than any other single  maii, both' in real estate   and   mining  property; aiid a man like II. A. Brown  to stand up in public and make such a  statement   as he  did !    And   furthermore, he and others said that'I called  the meeting for April' 6th.    They  are  mistaken.     T was asked by several   of  the citizens if I would put up   notices  in the lower' town, which' T-   did, and1  that was all I had to do with that meet-,  ing.    I may state that any further insults given either by II. A. Browii or  any other of the cranks will be treated  by me with silent contempt, as he and  they are beneath  my notice,  that a.gentleman will never   insult  man in any way', but that a fool oftentimes   will.���������I am, sir, yours -respectfully,    , J.

The dissatisfaction which hail for a  long' time prevailed among a large  portion of our,business.men as to the  course pursued by Government Agent  Kirkup reached a climax about six  weeks ago by the drawing up. and forwarding to the Attorney-General tho  following petition:���������  We, the undersigned, business men of Revelstoke, do bii{? you will favorably coiinider the  advisability of re-moving-the Government Agent,  to a more eongenia' sphere. ���������:  It is well known that Mr. Kirkup has no faith  in the district and has given very discouraging  reports of it to thoae enquiring lor in formation  ^roui him, anil in many other respects, lie eloes  not meet with the approval of the general public.  Tins is certainly to the detriment, ol" tl  knowing  ' GENERAL NEWS.  It was  ver  Coal  pay-day at the New Vaiicou-  Co's.   mines  last  Saturday.  Over $70,000 were paid out in wages.  Gold prospectors and people of all  classes are���������rushing by the score to  Western Australia, which is now  booming.   >  Vernon, B.C., has just passed, a bylaw giving a bonus of !*i5,000 for the.,  erection of a grist mill there.   (There-  were only eight 'dissentients.    -  In ten days no fewer than 300 unemployed men were sent1 by the Victoria (Australia) Mines Deparcmcntto  the auriferous fields of .the Colony on  a prospecting mission. The department supplied the men with railway  passes and miners' rights free of charge  and in tlie case of destitiitc men  with large families arranged to give  them 10s. each per week, in order that  they may be able to maintain thcin-  selyc^in the initiatory stages of their  work.  Adventurers are streaming into the  Yukon country, Alaska, in search of  the yellow metal. Tn a letter received  by Captain Moore from his son it is  stated that there were on March 28  some 175 on the portage between the  head of the Lynn and the summit of  Chilkoot pass, their supplies being  scattered along the road at various  stiiges. About 100 men went on the  Topeka on her last trip, and last night  she carried some, 90 more, a dozen or  so .going from Victoria.  It is stated that C. F. Law, of East  Kootenay,, who wius commissioner at  the World's fair from British Columbia,  has discovered somewhere in the interior of the province an extensive bed of  kainite. Mr. Law has told several  gentlemen about his find, but declined  to state where it was located. Th^s is  considered a very valuable find, the  only other place where it exists in  abundance being in the neighborhood  oi the Strasbourg, Oermany, salt  mines. The crude kainit/- i.s used  largely for fertilizing, and is also usoel  extensi veiy in f be; mannf.ictur-- of other  .-u-.iels ;\ncl drugs. Severn] million dollars worth of it is nniniallv exported  tt\iin otni'-.nouivr.  ..-. .   ._ ....     .. the ilia  trict, the province at large and itovolsloko in  particular.      , ,  And as such reports are palpably false, vve are  61 the opinion that it vvill result to the general  good il you am replace him by some one who  will do what he can in the interest of the pleice.  ' Mr. Kirkup's friends were soon astir  and a lively canvass for signatures to a  counter petition was made throughout  ^he town iind immediate district, chiefly  'by Air. J. W. Haskins and Sir. Morgan  David, who, it is stated, believing in  the oldjjiidage that "all's fair "in love  and war1," did not exclude the names ol'  non-residents and non-voters.', This  counter XDetition read:���������      ���������   "   ,  "Wo, the undersigned, regret that a certain  number of tho residents and taxpayers of Uc vcl-  stoke have petitioned your honor to have our  Government Agent, Mr. .Tohn Kirkup, removed)  irom his ofUce. Wo, your ..petitioners, hilinbly  pray that you will consider the matter, and  cause to bo sent here a commissioner to investigate the charges made against liim. And,  whereas, it is your petitioneis'humble opinion  that these charges aio of f.il*>e and malicious  nature, and, whereas, wc believe these charges  are purely personal and arbitrary. "\Vo therefore pray, &c. . '       ,,  ' Then on the 2nd of March a meeting  of those iwho signed the first petition  was 'held in .Peterson's Hall. As  rumors wero. thick in the air that an  investigation would be held and speci-  'fic charges asked for-, the following i-Oj  solutions and five charges were'drawn  up and sent to Victoria:���������  *��������� *- o >  That we do=i-.ot want to make any personal  charges although vve. can do so, but we desire  his quiet removal to some other post where he  'cannot damage our town and district, as his  ���������whole influence has been employed to that purpose for a long time past. - 0  , "SVe have no objection whatever to a commission being held to enquire into his conduct,  and vve are prepared to prove sullicient ciiaiges.  against him to justify,1ns prompt removal; only  tvve do not.wish to cause.dainage lo his character  before the general public.'    r -  If any special charges are required vve may ���������  mention the following among others:  1. Hefusing to spend the Government, appropriation on Douglas stroetbut spending itinsle ul  on another part of the town against tlie wi^nes  of the citizens.,  2. Declaring publicly that he "would guarantee there should be no wagon road built to the  Jlig Henel or lo Trout Lake" this .season.  'A. Neglecting t.o arrest a drunken man dangerously armed when requested to do so.  1. DccJnripg publicly that "all Lardeau lias  not enough ore in it, to pay for a wagon road.*'  li. .Speaking always disparagingly of this  country to strangers, especially to those desirous  of investing in mining speculations.  Dep.uty Attoi'uey-Gcnoral A.G .Smith  arrived here froni" Victoria on Friday  niorning and at 11 o'clock opened  the court of inquiry in Petei-son's Hall.  The hall was full to overflowing and  standing room was hardly obtainable.  The evidence was not taken on oath, the  commissioner declining to administei-  it to witnesses who desired to give  their testimony on oath. After le&s  than an hour's preliminaries the court  adjemrrrcd to 1:30.   On reassembling  Mr. Geo. Marsh, who represented the  signers of the first petition, wras the  first to give evidence, lie saiel: J met  Kirkup outside tho Victoria Motel last  July, anei we fell into convo'-sntion  about the mining districts, especially  Big Bend. Kirkup said he1 had nothing  to dei with it; it was a fraud ; that the  mines there were no good, a nil there  hnd not been one dollar taken out for  ,every ten dollars put irrto it. . 1 contra-'  dieted hiin, having' boon there a few  days before. 1 - Lcild hiui of the; state  the trail was in, anil saiel the Government ought to clear it out, and said 1  thought $11)00 or even $500 would make  it passable. Kirkup saiel there; would  not be one dollar spent on it. About it  month later, I was sitting iu front of  the Victoria Hotel with Mr-. O.I 1. Allen and one en- two others, when Kirkup came up and demanded onr poll-fa1*:.  Mr. Allen and 1 both stood him oil', and  I saiel 1 hoped our- both paying tho tax  would bo tue means of raising Bevel-  stoke to a big town. Kirkup aiibwor-  eel: "Marsh, if you are here in ten  years' time, you' vvill see it just the  same as it is now." That is the last  conversation I ever had with him.  Cross-examined by Mr. Kirkup : Vou  told me- wrong things about Big Mend.  There has been gold enough take n out  ofBigMe-nelto build six trails. Von told  me the1 mines were frauds, ospe-ci.-illy  the Barrett mine. Have seen the Consolation Aline aud the Ophir Bedrock  Flume. The gold recently, bi-oi-ght  down from the former amounts to over  $7000.' The* $500 spent on the trail last  year was well spent. If you hael your  way, there never woulel be one cent  spent there. There has been enough  gold brought out of the* Bend to make  the trail bettoi-, and with the prospects  ahead a be*tte*.i- road should be built.  John Abraliaiiipon said he hael seien  Kirkup ill-using (hunk people, and  mentioned ciiocs. Could not fix the*  dates, but it was within the ln**t seven  'years. Had seen Kirkup kick people  and use a stick. Mentioned two e-.ises,  one with regard losoine Kiiilande-rs,  also a Cfise where a man named Ci-nin-  bie was injured bybeing kicked in the1  back by Kirkup. Another'case- where*  Mr. Keliie, M. P. P., inlei-1'ci" <1 anei  fold Kii-knp that was not the* l-ij^ht  thing to elo. This was l.-ist.Tuly. Speaking of the grueling of l'Vc'iii, street in  LS02, Air. Abi-ahaius.oii saiel Kirkup told  him he was going lei make.1 .-: road along  the-, ci'iifer eif the street,. The citizens  objccle-el to thai, and l.he*n Kirl.up s.-iiel  .he vveiiild rot ��������� rado   ihe' stri-el, at all.  When I was grading  id  The heitel-keeper.s_pui/ their teams on  and did the woi-fi" free. Kirkup then  '.agreed to gravel it, and did so out' of  the balance be saiel he was keeping for  improvements in the spring. In 1SU3,  the citizens circulafeel a list for subscriptions to open up Douglas street in  view of the promise of $250 from the  Government. The citizens pi.it up about  $"'500, and after this; was spent on the  street, the* (-ommitfeu risked Kirkup if  ho would gei em with the work, using  the $250 given us1 by the Government.  He said it was no use-, opening up a  btree-t where" nobody lived. 1 Ie wanted  to make a narrow, r-oaelwuy through  the niidelle.1 eil'-lhe street, but the citizens objec'U'd. Then he started, opening up the cemetery road on l.huvot,her  side of the railway.. The people protested against this.' Mr. S. O'r-owl was  the foreman employed by the committee. Air. Kirkup remarked last February, directly'after a public meeting _on  the. siibjoct of the; wagon roads to the  Beg Blind and, Trout Lake, that'he  woulel not be afraid to bet that neither  of the roads woulel bo built next, summer, because the country didn't justify  it. I have told Kirkup that if the peei-  plediael the same opinion of the town  and district as he,hael everybody would  leave. Had heard Kirkup say he woulel  not invest a cent in,, the town or the  country. lie said last " summer  that he owned the building next to  the Senate llot,el, and if he coulel sell  it ho would never again invest a cent  in the town. '    :      *-'  ' Cross-examined by Air. 'Kirkup: I  have asked you to put out drunk fiien  from our bar. T saw you kick (Jrombic.  The hotel-keepers diet .ill the1 grading.  It was not the intention, to open up  Douglasstreettothe i-emctep\\vhen the  money wrj������ granted. ' Wo--did kick  about the .money being used (on the  Cemetery road. The money for Douglas street ,was not enough to open it up  to the railway track. Therefore we  could not spare the money for the cemetery road. You did ask if we had  permission to cross the railway. AVhen  f said we had not'you said "You had  better got permission lirst." You told  me you had telegraphed to Ah'. Alar-  pole*. We did ask you to reserve $100  for the erection of a crossing over,the  , railway. Very little of the Government money was spent on Douglas St.  It was not the -wish of tho committer  to handle' the Government- money.  We only desireel you to have the same  foreman. We did not expect that $500  woulel quite eipen up Douglas street.  "We' thought it was'no use having-a  narrow road ^through the', centre.;  When Mr. Northey' risked the Hon'  Thco. Davie for Government help to do  this,work, he told Air. Davie that the  street was a disgrace to the,town and  that if it was cleared and levelled jt  would make a bettor entrance to the  town. The estimates states there' are  $11,000 for wagon 'roads for West  Kootenay. '        * '*-,     '  You did make the remark that the  wagon roads would not be built this  year-. Heard Kirkup say ho would not  have Crowl for-foreinan, but -I 'don't  know the reason why  Samuel Crowl:  Douglas street Kirkup came up and  asked what I was grueling the street  for. 1 said it was the people's wish.  He said: "Who arethe-people?" Iloalso  said: "When T get the Government,  money I'll make a road in the middle."'  Last February I spoke to Kirkup about  the wagon road from Thomson's Landing to Trout Lake. He said the road  w.'is not needed. There vvas nothing  there to induce the Government to  build ii road. There was nothing' in  tho'Lardcau to build a road for. Have  seen Kirkup kick "and hit drunk men  with a stick within thelasteightyears.  It has been such a frequent occurrence  that I have not been" able to keep track  of them. r  P. li. Peterson: .Some years ago I  was served with a document (produced)  by Kirkup. I went to Kirkup for it  trade liceeusc and lie refused to giveine a  licenso because T had not paid for my  lot. He brought ine the licemse twei or  three elays after. Air*. Peterson then  went on to state tho facts of a recent  else iiv which Kirkup refused to arrest  ii man named Beegan vl-ho had pointed  a revolver at Peterson and threatened  to "shut it up," but was not allowed to  repeat anv "hearsay"���������statements.  Peterson risked Kirkup aboutan appeal  case a Cow months ago iinel was fold by  that official to "go and drown himself."  O. II Allen eiorrohorated Air-. Afarsh's  statement a's tei Kirkup saying "If  Marsh came back in ten year's time he  would Iinel Revelstoke juntas it is now."  W. AI. Brown saiel be had seen Kirkup illuse* ;i drunk man in only one* instance1. It was on the 10th en- 17th of  Alart-h 1S0X A man iiamort Win. Glenn  was .standing at the enel of the pool  table at the Columbia House; and vva*;  e-arele'ssly knocking the balls about. A  man named Caldwell was on the other  side of the fable. Glenn vvas drunk  and had only just 'come iu. Nobody,  paid any attention to what he- was saying. Kirkup caiiK1 in auel spoke i,ei  Glenn in a very sharp tone and Glenn  answered hack, using bad language.  Kirkup said he would arre-st liim and  Gleuin again ansvveroel hack. Kirkup  caught hold of Glenn anei hur-led him  through the1 eloeir. Glenn woulel not  walk, se> Kirkup i-alle-d on his brother,  and the; twei eil them dragged him to  the lockup. Air. Brown said he took  down the* first petition for signatures  and it was sent lo Victoria for the  Gove'i-nirienl, to act upon. The object  in acting quietly in regard to that petition was to favor Kirkup by allowing  hiin to resign without any ill-feeling.  Arr. Kirkup Iiiiel bi*i*n detrimental to the  town for a long time past. Thought  Kirkup exceeded his duty >as Government agent, when ho said there would  be no wagon roads built this summer,  lie made* that remark to several of tho  business men, iind aCte1-/ the delegates  re-o.urne-d from Victoria he "would  giiaranloe thai, th������*re would not he a  dollar spent on tin- roads." It is we'll  knejwn that ho h.i -> made very discouraging rerpeirts to tiiose inquiring for information about ("ne country and is not  liked iu public c-,timatinii. The loads  should bo built, and local labor employed. I have1 nhoul thirty men at my  bole-l without a dollar in their- pockeit,  nnd it is *=iini!iir- with other hotels. We  are gob)',' to ask lhe Government to  start the work on these two roads,-is  soeni as possible, so as to give these  iiicn (i, e-hii.'ic.i;.  Win. Caldwell said he si-a<- in the  Columbia House when Kirkup arrested  Glenn.,, Glenn was drunk belore genng  to the Co'iimbia House and while coming up the street bael been cautioned by  Kirkup. Kii-lcup did not use any undue violence in making the arrest, and  as Glenn would not walk Kir-kupcalled  hiu brother anei they partly earned him  lo thtrlockup. ,        " ''  l~i. W. Northey,said he hael been asked tei-give the������ truy statements concern-,  ing the appropriation for Douglas street;"  as he'was* probablv the only one. who  was conversant with the affair from  liegiuing to end. "When the Mem. Air.  Davie- was bore last summer he sho wed  him the street, which,,was certainly, an  eyesore to the whole town. He asked  Mjr-. D.ivie if tho Government, would  l>'elp the'iii to make n street of what  "was merely a wilderness, arrd also to"  make u shorter route to the cemetery.  Air. Davie asked how much would Ih*  required and was told that $500'would  bo' enough for present needs anei that  the citizens woidd put up $250 if the  Government would givo-a, similar .sum.  Air. Davie promised on behalf of the  Government to do so if there was  enough le-ft from the current, year's appropriation. Air. Kirkup was notified.  f(Letters wero here put "in.) ' The ue-in-  'mittee commenced work with S. Crowl  as foreman, and Mr. Kirkup censured  the way in which'it was being done. ���������  'When the citizens' money was us������d un  Kirkup was requested to go on withe  the work, but he was then using a portion Of the money on J,he Cemetery  road on the other .side of the railway  and altogether outside oftowh.       c  The Commissioner: What do you de-  finePas being outside of town?,  Mr. Northey:   Across    the ��������� railway  , track.   Look at'the map.  Air. Kirkup said he had orders from ,  Mr. Gore to open up the Cemetery road;  ho also said Air.  Mai-pole would, not,,  .allow a crossing at the head of Douglas  street and it was useless to spend any  money orr that street under the ch-euin-.  .stances.   So that the money given by  the. Government for opening' up Douglas street was applied to open "tip the  Cemetery road, ,Avhich'is certainly not  ;i portion of Douglas street.   There is  no doubt,that Air. Kirkup was hostile '  to the ieloa of spending any money''on.  Douglas street,  as   he ,wrote   to Air.  Gore, that such an improvement would  not benefit a dozen peeiple.    When he  found he hael to use the remainder of  tide "nioiiej^oh Douglas street ho wanted  to make a roadway in^tlio center, thus'  showing that'he did   not  grasp   the  situation at all.   Jt was mainly to benefit' the ��������� town and make the'entrance  from the station less like a wilderness  that wc wanted. to grade the (whole  width of the street.   In improving the  Cemeteiy road he/'sp'ent money on it  'portion  that would never bemused if  *  Douglas street  were ope*ued and  the  railway   crossed.     Air.   Kirkup   tele- <  graphed   to"  Air.   Marpole,.,  and   that  gentleman refused to'allow'the C.P.R.  to bo crossed at' Douglas street.   This  was, another reason Air. Kirkup advan-  , cod for not doing the work on Douglas --  street.   But-if Mr. Kirkup was'i-eaily  to back down"at. such a small obstacle  as that he was not the man ho was supposed to be.  'It was preposterous.    No  corporation, however powerful, can con-'  fine a town in such narrow limits anei  cut off egress in that manner.   He be-  lievoel Kirkup to be nn efficient constable, arrd that he'was honest and conscientious in saying what he believed,  but he should be more careful in what  he said derogatory to the town.  The Commissioner: Whathas he said.  Mr. Northoyi   Do you wish me to  make ������any   specific   charges?   T came  here to give the history of the Douglas   .,  street affair and I will confine myself  to that.   But I must'say that I have  often-felt depressed ai'ter'having a conversation with ATr. Kirkup on the out-  look for the town and0havo uinde'up  my mind more than.once to quit the  whole business.   Air.  Kirkup is most   ,  decielodly a pessimist as regards this  district." Possibly it may be that Air.  Kirkup is the only hoiiost'ma n amongst  lis, and wo are all liars and "boomer's.''  He would not work with the cominit-  te>c e>n the Douglasstr/iot improvement;  said he woulel not have anything to elo  with the committee;  but later'"on  he  stated that the committee would not  have' anything  to eh*, with  him.    He  had a le-tter from Gore t(i expend the*  meine'v   ou '"Douglas   street   to   the'  Cemetery."   Now, how elid  Air.   Gore  got hold "of the* fact that tlie Cemetery  road vvas at all connecled with Doughfs '  street?    I le could not have  known unless some one had written him on that  particular point.    In  all ,Arr.   Davie's  letters he; had said "for the opening up  of Douglas street." and no other place  wns mentioned.    Air. Kirkup was praised by some pe-oplo whouseel the Cemetery road for what he had done there*,  but those, people had  net  interest   in  Douglas street.    We   e-eintondod   that  the money was given us for- Douglas  street and should not have; been used  anyvvhe-re else.    We did not expect lu  cross the1 track for awhile1, but. eventually we woulel have deme- se> and had a  straight route* to I he Cemetery.  Cross-examined by Air. Kirkup: Hew  do you know that 1 spent any ol* that  money on the Ocnu'lcry mad? .  Air1. Northey: You have tolel me so.  Q. How do you know 1 spe*nt it em a  portion eif the roael that would not be  needed if' Douglas street was allowed  to cross the railway?  A.  Because   I   have   examined   th.-it __  portion, iinel  I  saw that you had paralleled  the  existing  road."    What did  you make another road a few feet from  the old one for? ' /  Air. Kirkup: That's my business.  H. A. Drown staled that last Align**!,  there wore gentlemen at his hotel who  bad come lievre* tei invent in mining.

It is a pity fhiit^soine of our friends  think the "Mail one-sided wilh regard  to the investigation re the Government  Agent. But to show that the. charge  "of oiie-sidedness is not substantiated,  we would  inform   those   friends    that  , some of those on the other side have  said the editor was altogether too lenient towards the shiiilooming? of the  Government Agent. 'There was nothing ollensivo to any one in our last and  first issue. We did comment strongly  on the letter of "A Private Citizen,*'  which stated that a reepiest hael been  .soul lo Victoria for police protection.  .From that ceiiiiiiienl we cannot withdraw one; worel, as vve think vve represent the views of a majority of the  citizens in condemning the sending of  ���������such a telegram, and if those of our  friends who object te> such comments  , were not, for the time being, filled with  .< bias and prejudice they would;} be the  , first to condemn such action as would  bring a stigma upon tlie town. u This  paper* will bo conducted fairly and  Be-unruly in the intercuts of the town  at largo, and not for .any faction or section,* good, bad1 or inrl ille rent, We  have no desire to say anything against  the Government Agent, The" case is  now before the proper authorities.

I'Oelward Adair said his reason for  signing the petition vvas the* samo as  that of the last two witnesses. He  handed in a writeu slatoment coni-e-rn-  ing the Government wagon road recently constructed at Hall's Landing.  It was to the' oll'e'ct that the road had  neit been built according to the desire;  of the majority of the" people there;  that Air. Kirkup had been askeei lo |  come elown iinel soo into the matter, bill (  hael neit elone1 so: that only two or three  'settlors were benefitted by tho 'road >  as it i.s now'. Tlio'Governnioirt aulli-  ori/.ed Kirkup to spend $2(10 (o extonel  the road, but ho saiel it was not, necessary. '   ' '  Fred "Ribbai'h said he came rip from  eleiwn rivcrJa->l.].'iuu.-iryand in Ku-kup's  oilice one day accidentally mcntioneel  the fact that there was'a party at the  head "of the Like sollingjiiijuoi- without  a liceijse. Kirkup saiel he-had heard of  it, but could not get fact-, so as to erf?  able him lo take slops in the mallei-.  Told Kirkup ho would give him the  names of the par-ties if he wished anil  did give him five or six names. Witness  said he had bought liquor there himself  and know the whole business. Kirkup  took no further action in the matter.  A. 11. Ilolelich : Heard Kirkup make  remarks about the mining' district on  erne occasion. 1 asked him wh.it he'  thought about mining here, and more  particularly what he thought of Big  Bond. He saiel ho thought that Big  Bond was no good at all. No one else  was present. Aiy experience has been  quite-the reverse" anei has proved ALr.  Kirkup to be wrong in his estimate of  Big Bond, because from a lot of assays  l have m:uj,c there was not one1 which  did not contain some gold. Alauy of  these samples wero surface ' o.irth,- ,so  thitt I did not expect to find gold. I  think Big Bend is a good gold country.  1 have had a lot of assays considering  the short season. "  II. N. Coursier said all his influences  were centred in the welfare of tho town.  The town depended .on'its mineral  wealth. Had nothing against Kirkup'  personally. As Government agent he*  ought to assist the country-with all his  power. H;, was a' young country and  ought tb have the assistance ol and not  the opposition of Government oflicials.  In a milling country it. veiy often required $1(10 or- so to be spent before Jjil  could be taken out. The Government  ought to lay out an expenditure before  thoy expected any .return--. Had heard  Kirkup say it required $10 for every .$1  returned.  Ct-os^-examiiied by Air. Kirkup:  1 leard you say so about a year ago out-  siele the courthouse. I think Jerry  Ne'.rgle -was pros'ml. Have not hoard  you speak against lhe eouiiti-y before  strangers. Have re'sideel here about  five years.  'F.B, Wells: l s'gned the petition  because f heard Kirkup had been running down the country. 1 think if the  Government agent is not going to hold  up tho couritiy the sooner we pack up  and gv) the hi*rtei'.<*  The court then aeljnur;ii*d until Saturday morning at niin1 o'clock when the  first to resume the evidence vvas o  ull iiros.

Bourne's evidence to say that the  Government, requested the1 delegates to  cilia public meeting on the matter on  their return from Victoria.  liy Air. Alarsh : I consider that Alason  hail a re'spee-talile bui'iiil. 1 unelorstooel  All-. Kirkup wanted tb grade '10 foot  roadw.iy through Douglas street anei  then repair the* cemetery road,' which  would have been better "than an eighty  foot road for- a few block's.  p. Robinson saiel: 1 Jiave never seen  Kirkup illuse a drunk man. I admire,  the1 maimer in whiemhe spent the Government money orr the" new bridge  across the lllecillewaot. I have had  conversations with hiin about the wagon roads and also about the development of the country, and ho has never  saiel a bail word against either to me.  I don't think a better man 'could he;  found as a police- officer.  By Air. Alarsh : Kirkup has always  told me it is a, good country. He novel- lolel me he1 hael no faith in"the cemn-  ti-y. 1 have not much faith in the country. I am not so covetous as Some people, so as to wish all Government' mo-  111*5' lo be spent iibout 'tin1 station.  Come, up and see the road to the mill,  and you will see if Kirkup has elon'c  anything for the mill.  By Air. David : 1 have interests at  Hall's Landing. Have timber limits on  tho Columbia River below Re*velstoke.  ' John Stone saiel : I was askeei to sign  the first petition. I have seen Kirkup  chase a man what we called a "bummer." Have nut seen him use any brutality. I think ho has spent Government money perfectly right. Could  not tell if ho over said any thing detrimental lo the town. "       ' '  By Air. Alarsh : Don't remember seeing Kirkup kick or'use his fists on a  drunk man.  Fred. Frasor said :��������� Last February 1  hoaril that Boegan was beating his wife  .-uiel threatening her and passers-by  with a revolver. (Mnfornietl Kirkup of  tho all'air, and from what lie said, I felt  satisfied that I knew more about it  than be did. After leaving Kirkup, the  first, one; I met, was Air. Haskins, who  made a statement which the Government Agent has denied on oath. Haskins told me that he was present when  Airs. Bei'gan askeei, Kirkup to arrest  he*r husband, and he would not do it.  Haskins was a bit" excited about that  time. I also hael some facts aboutBee-  gau's flourishing a revolver from Air.  [jFel'orson. I tliink" Kirkup is a most  "eiTleient constable, but about, the Government Agentship 1 do not express  my opinion.' 1 have never hoard him  run down the country in public, but 1  havo hearel people say lie has deiue so.  ' W. Al. Brown, in answer lo. Air. Da-  viel : L signed.the petition against Kirk-'  up. [ heard Air. .Caldwell's evidence  yesterday iu the Glenn all'air, and ,1  "havo no doubt he is speaking the truth,  ladid not know before now that Glenn  had boon insolent to the 'constable in  the street before coming into my barroom. As'it was,.! eeiuld not understand the constable's coining in directly after Glenn and speaking to him in  that manlier, but 1 -can now. What  annoyed me most was .that after, this  happened, Kirkup came to me and'said  he- would'report me to the Licensing  Boardd'or allowing a drunk man to .use  foul language on my premises." T. want,  ,to s.iy, however-, that"* m\v statement  with regarel tei the constable-hurling  Glenn through the door is perfectly'  correct. It is not peissible that ho  could have fallen through the door of  his own accord when he was standing'  leaning against tho pool table; 12 or 1-1  feet away. If it i.s the wish of Kirkup's  friends to have all the potty things T>  will let them haye it. If I had known  the circumstance's of tho case the probability is that T would not have made  any statement iibout 'the Glenn affair  yesterday. 1 thought that the constable was taking a high barrel hy coming into my house and arresting a'man  in such a "hasty manner, without my  being called on and not knowing what  had occurred outside1.  _C. 13. Hume said: Have not soon  Kirkup use any undue violence in  arresting drunk men. 1 have thought  him U'O leiiieni. Don't know what  in*jtruciions he received from the Gov-  I'rmneul, but I can say the little money  bad if  hael walk eel.  have been  and he replied, ���������'Kirkup was not severe  enough to me, according lo the way in  which I spoke ,to him." It was the  only time I saw Kirkup use force.  Have never- heard him say anything for  or against the town. 1 "have mining  propi-rty in Big Bend, and at the time  I secured my claim I askeei his advice  iibout it. ' He saiehj"As a public officer  I have no advice to give, bull believe  Big Bend is all right."��������� I heard him on  another occasion speak very,highly of  the Consolation Mmej. I travel a gooel  eleal in this district, and 1 will say that  00 people out of every 100 arc., for Kirkup. I, can rely .on" this fact. I was  -asked to si^n life first petition, but refused. I think Air. Bourne knew that  there;'we-ro more than three: business  ine-ii who eliel not sign the first petition.  When 1 came to this country six years  ago 1 mot' Air.

There had been no kick coin-,  ing from the prospectors in tho Lardeau with  rcgaid to the spending of Government money.  I lend Kirkup say that several claims in the  lower country were very good, such as t he Silver  Cup and Mlack Pi nice.

Morgan David said: I have nothing to say  about the second charge. 1 have, in moie llin.ii  one occasion, heaid Kirkup say a good word for  the district in general. 1 have had a lot to do  with him in his ollicial capacity and have al-  vva.vs found him straightforward and easy to  approach from a business point of view. _ln roam d to the Messrs Jlrown'sstatements thatthe  I'overniiienl intended removing Jvu-knp, I vvi-h  lo -ay that 1 too have a statement Ironithe  Government.

A party left Hall's Landing for Revelstoke on the Steamer Lytton on Wednesday and paid their fare to their destination; but on going aboard the train
at   the   Green   Slide 'the   conductor

The Truth about Douglas Street.
Sik,���We, the Douglas Street Committee, desire to say a few words about"
the work done on Douglas street, iinel
the management of the same. The
money subscribed by the citizens of
Revelstoke was $300, and the Government gave 8250 more for tlie completion of Douglas street only, and for no
other purpose. With that 8300 wo
cleared, grubbed and graded 825 feet
of the street1 its full width, 80 feet.
The entire length of the street from
King street to'the railway track is 1500
feet. "With the ��250 that Kirkup had
at his disposal, he coulel have complete^], the balance, dob' feet, but. instead
he only graded pari ially 150 feet.
Does not this shew that wo had good
gmunds for complaint? "Mr. C B.
ILunic staled in his evidence "I can
say tho little money spent on the cemetery road was woi I spent, and, that
siient on Douglas street was misspent."
Now, Mr. 1 fume did not contribute a
cent towards opening up the street^
though he owns property on it which
lie acknowledges is m.l.eie   more
ble. How can Mr-. Himie say.the money was ill-spent when he himself uses
the street continually ? As to the cemetery road,, it has been in use for more
than five years for hauling'nearly all
the cord wood burnt in the town, and
we see no reason-whv Douglas street
money should havo been spent on that
road, as the town has no grant of hind
for cemetery pur-poses.
D. Kobinson "admires the way in
which Kirkup spent the public money
ou the I llccillowaet bridge." D. Robinson wjis the .contractor. Natural
enough. R. Ilowson contributed very
little to the street, but stated '"T consider Kirkup's judgment in making the
streeit was better than making it 80 ft.
wide for two or three blocks." If "Mr.
Howson had property on Douglas st.,
which method woulel he prefer, a 16
foot road in the middle of"an 80-fnot
street, leaving brush anei stumps at the
sides so that no owner,could have access to his buildings or lots, or an 80 foot
street? ff the work h;id been contin-
ueel as it had been begun, the money
would have been .sullicient to grade the
street up to the track.
J. W. Haskins'. remark iibout boule-
vards was uncalled for j and the balance of the statements for the defence-
was given by those who are neither interested in the street nor acquainted
with , the needs of the town, except
Kirkup's own words. He said : " I
woulel not undertake any work on the.
company's (C P. H.) property without
their permission. I then went to work
and put sonic repairs on the cemetery
road. After-expending this money, I
went lo work on Dougbus street." lie
also says there is a balance left in hand
(of ���rii!i,'-$250) which would have been
available to go on with the work this
spring, nul,,/ il luid been npr.nl on other
lourk. Again, he says
dozen people, living on
no "J,
Immediately after we were through
with Douglas street, we opened up the
three cross streets, 1 lanson, Benson
and Wright streets, clearing and grading them at our own expense; this is
proof that all our wish was to improve
the town and make it accessible to all.

"When  a   sergeant  of  the  Provincial Police is soni, 61V post-haste  from Victoria with a C.P.R.-'"pass" in  his pocket' for thi? chief city of  the  North Riding there must have been  some urgent need of his services in this  peaceful  and sequestered, Hamlet  oiu  the banks <of the   mighty   Columbia.  What-th'e sergeant's mission really was  is at present only known to a few. -If  ' it was for Mr. A. G. Smith's "personal  convenience,"   as   the    Commissioner  tolel Arr. Brown on   Friday,   the province might just as well have hired a  ,  cheapen-fcnan than a sergeant of police  '" to fetch the Coimnissioni'r- a glass of  'wafer and do other menial services.  '<���������    ��������� , tf *  *     * ( '  The. Sergeant was voted a "pretty  good sort of fellow;' by all who came in  contact with hiin, and was not above  hobnobbing with other, gooel fellows,-  whether Kirkupites or anti-Kirkupites.  He had'a first-class holiday and'seemed  well pleased with his trip to the mountains. When he next visits West  Kootenay it is to be hoped he will not  be hampered by having to attend,to  the wants or- "convenience" of any  commissioner.     - , ������r  ��������� *��������� *r '  ,'   Tell about a big audience!   Peterson's  hall last Friday night held the biggest  crowd ever seen,inside any building in  the two Kootenays.   There was scarce-^  ly standing rooin.jmii the heat was������  oppressive.   Noi- a "Solitary representa-  ' tive of the gentle sex was present,from  which it may be opined that the rough  element was there in force. 'But nothing of thekind.   The. proceedings were  ' witnessed by   the   most  orderly  and  ' well-behaved audience, that could be  possibly gather eel together. Only one  plight conb'eren'ipNmarred the evening,  and that took place outside, when one  ' of the witnesses tauntedQhc defendant  with ungentleniunly conduct in his  cross-examination.O A little soreness  at being compelled to give his evidence  in a piece-meal fashion, followed by  the defendant's rather overbearing attitude towards this particular witness,  ���������. was the cause of this wordy scrap. Fortunately  "only, words, empty words"  . resulted,   and*'probably, by  this time  both gentlemen are sorry it occurred.  *.-������''  When Air. R. Howson said he thought  Masoi) liJLtl a decent funeral last AI ay,  I thought 1 would like to ask him to  define his ideas of decency'.' Putting  , aside the uncarthly0hour at which the  funeral was appointed-���������7 o'clockin the  morning���������putting aside the fact that  none of the deceased's friends were notified of the time, for starting; allowing  that $20 was quite '���������"enough to spend on  the funeral of a supposed suicide* (although he left a watch and chain worth  " .$150,.besides a new overcoat and other-  things);* also putting aside the fact that  the body*-vas-earted away unwashed,,  with'even the. boots left on; allowing  iill thescthings to pass, I would like to  ask Air. Ilowson if he thought it was  decent'to put the corpse into the ground  <uid shovel in the earth and stones  without tlie reading ol* some kind of  service at the graveside? It has .always  been lhe custom in Christian countries  to read the burin service before the  grave is filled in, unless the deceased  person is a suicide, and in Arr-. Allison's  case it was never proved he took his  life wilfully. That he took an overdose'  tei pi-ocu'i-e sleep is the general belief of  all who knew him. c  - - *  The coining provincial election in the  North Riding promises to be a lively  '   affair.     I   am   given   to   understand  .  that there will  be no less than three  ' Government   candidates   in the   Held.  In all probability there will be an Opposition candidate to make things still  livelier.   The.se four are all from the  chief town in the riding.    1   ahall  not  be surprised if Nakiisji puts up a local  man as well.    Mr. McDougall is  that  way inclined, but  whether he will,see  the futility of eoming'Ymt against such  Samsons as the four above inentioneel r  /im not in a position to say.   J shall ������.x-  *   pec-t to see considerable   personalities  brought into operation during the contest. . Brrt where e-arr  vve expect to see  n little rancour displayed if not fit a  Parliamentary  election?   By  the bye,  when are the candidates going to malt  '    a public declaration of their intention  to stand? It is about time, I should say.  -* ������  The fine building just erected by Air.  "SY.
