There "were a goodly number of  people stopping at the hotel, some persons in good health par-taking of the  hotel comforts as ordinary guests,  while there were several invalids  afflicted with paralysis, rheumatism,  ami-men disabled by railway accident,  who were in addition taking tho benefit of the baths.   ,  Mr. ,I-luber and wife, of Kaslo, left  Friday   morning  afr.er  a short stay.

She could not speak, but  before leaving was able to articulate  quite distinctly, and in other .respects  derived a perceptible beneiit.  Mr. John Thompson, of Spokane, an  intelligent American, had ^ chronic  rheumatism, a severe case 'of-long  standing, anrl liacl spent much time at  American health'resorts; among which  were the Hot Springs of Arkansas.  He had been here a few'days-only, but  realizes a slight, improvement, and intends to remain until he thoroughly  tescs the waters.  Mr. V,T. 'B;'ii('.ai*,<aftei* three weeks'  trial of tho baths, is nearly well of the  rheumatism,. which attacked ' him  severely while working-' in the Trout  Lake mines. He will stay several  weeks longer. 6 ���������<���������  Frank McCxowan, fireman on 505,  Nakusp & Slocan Railway,' has been  horo'several weeks, and'has fully recovered; frcjm a painful, injury caused  by being-throjvn from the cab of the  engine.  51 rs. MJatlew, a widow lady, has but'  recently taken the position of housekeeper in the hotel, and is'quite competent in, that respect, as she. kept a  hotel of her own .at, Watson, on the  Kaslo road, which, was destroyed by  the forest fire in July, with all its  contents.  Mr. Julius Wolff is in   full  charge of  the. baths.     He has had eight years'-  experience  iii a similar "capacity with  Dr. Brett at Banff Hot .Springs/and is  thoroughly qualified for the position.

Mr. Jordan says people in the'  ga's belt know the supply is being exhausted rapidly,' but don't admit it.  In'many sections of the. gas belt the  welis show only a, pressure of '2H)  pounds, while in many of the gas belt  towns can be found wells almost entirely exhausted, lie estimates that  ������25,000.000 worth of ;gas has ,'beon  wasted in tlie state in the last seven  years. It is estimated th-it ovo*\l,000,-  000 people use the ,iiatiii-.->.i gas for fuel  and that over tflO.COO.COd is invested in  pipe lines and factories, the success of  which depends, on.'the supply.  ' , Ln tlie Legislative Assembly the  JFon. Col. Baker ' moved the. second  reading of the Mining Bureau Bill, and  explained the object of the bill to be to  furnish information concerning our  mining resources to capitalists and  others interested in mining.   ,  Mr. Semlin thought the Government  had all the machinery at their command necessary to collect the desired  information.  Tho.bill passed'withoutdivision. The  general consensus of opinion among  mining'men is that the bureau should  be, located-in the best point iii the  mining district, where it would be  accessible at all seasons, not only to  miners themselves, 'but to visiting  capitalists and everyone requiring information about our mines. If the  bureau is to be established outside of  Victoria, the chances will probably lie  between Revelstoke.and New Denver.  More Profitable Than Wheat'  We. have seen   it stated;that"B.C.  ranchers have lost money by growing  wheat.     There' is a grain,   however,  which   ia   being   imported   into'    this  province in respectable quantities,'and'  that is oats.   There is no country in  the world that can   beatf! this sectiqn'-i-  with its soil largely impregnated with'  'rotten wood���������in growing oats, which,  here attain the rankest growth of stalk'  and ear and a height of five or six feet."  A Northwest-exchange says:,   "Oats  are   being  shipped   from'   Edmonton  district to British , Columbia;  quite a  number of cars going forward' lately;  About 20c. per bushel  is  paid  to  the '  Edmonton  fanner for 'oats. "SomV of  these oats are going to  the,' oatmeal  mills at Victoria and New Westminster.  Though oats are  being shipped   out,  there appears to be not enough wlieat  grown  for local, purposes,  as> flour is  being brought'm from Manitoba."    .  .

The cutting'  'down of prices and bad times, generally  make it necessary for our agriculturists to exercise the greatest care in  order to secure the proper returns'for  their labor, and 'The Canadian Live  Stock and Farm Jouvi-mI contains just  the kind of information' necessary to  assist them in the work.

The third time is lucky. Tlie first time  ho brought in ,the bill it was snuffed  out at ouce. The next year it was  awarded more generous treatment and  received its quietus at the hands of a  'barermajprity. This session it received  almost unanimous consent.  Last week the bill came up in Committee, Mr. Eithet iii the chair. As  the bill proposes to give power to companies or persons to build and operate  ,ttam'ways' without applying to the  Legislature for charters,'it was very  rightly considered an important one.  Coiisiderable. discussion'took place on  the clause confining the operation of  the Act to Kootenay, many of the  members wishing the application of it  to be made genoraU Finally, the Com-  ,imtteo reported progress.    "  <���������"       The Fur Trade.  , Tho quantity of furs received,so far  lliis season has  been very light, .which'  may lie   attributed to the  very mild  'weather.   The quality also is not up to  tHe average tit  this tune of the year.  and prices as a rule are very low'for all  kinds except No. 1 prime. At this time  'of thereat*.there are also a good many  early caught furs offering, .which-are  'of very littlo  value,'and  country deal-'  ers who are not experts, in''handling  fur.5, frequently pay far moro for such  skins than they are worth.  The Winnipeg Commercial says:  "Several lots' of skins,'have come in  lately which cost countiy merchants  double what, they were worth. In fact  one lot of bear skins came in which  were not worth express charges,  though a considerable sum had been  paid for them by a country merchant.  Those who are not skilled in handling  furs are very liable to be taken in at  this season of tho year with ' early-  caught skins which are practically  worthless."

Last night's social event in Bourne's  hall was probably as successful, both  socially and financially, tis any gathering of the same nature over held in the  town. The hall was comfortably  crowded from nine o'clock last evening  till five o'clock, this.morning, and the  large number of ladies' present was a  surprise '"even' to the most snngimine  es'pectantee. ' Dancing was, of-course,  the chief feature, there being no less  than 24 numbers on the programme,  and six extras were thrown in -to give  good -measure. The floor was in excellent condition,' and each set had a  reasonable amount of room without  betng crammed.- The music was supplied by the orchestra- band,.and one,  or two new dance pieces were played,  but the old familiar tunes were rendered in the old familiar style. Tho  refreshments handed around at midnight were ample in quantity, excellent in quality and immense in variety,  the cuisine��������� being under.the management--of Messrs. F. Fraser and John  Abrahamson., - All the officers of the  brigade ��������� were - present, conspicuous  among them being Chief \V. M. Brown,  wearing his handsome badge. Guv  Barber'"and Dan Alton were efficient  M.C.'s, and the thanks of the brigade  are due to those 'ladies and gentlemen whose songs added to the, pleasures of the evening. The debt of 650  orv-the fireball will be-wiped out, and a  tidy little sum left in hand.  ��������� ��������� A COMING TREAT.  A ME  MAS.  Next Saturday, night the Revelstoke  Amateur Dramatic Society wiil ghean  entertainment in Bourne's hall, when  the farce " Should this meet the Eye"  and the. laughable comedy of "The  Young- Widow" will be presented.  The cast is a good one, W. F. Crage  taking- -the parts of "Lambkin  Louder" inj the farce and "Splash" in  the comedy. Those who witnessed  Mr.'Crage's acting in "lei ou Parle  Francais'l and "Chiselling" last March  will 'feel assured of getting tiieii  money's. worth next week. Of the  other performers C. E. Shaw, F. G)  Cotton and E. Sydor' have acquitted  themselves creditably before a Revelstoke audience, and S. Hammond i.s  not a no vice-in the art. Of the ladies,  Miss M Valentine is favorably known  as-an .elocutionist, while Mis. Cnge  Miss Swtinton and Miss Stella S'rown  can be depended upon to lusiniu  their parts to perfection. Mr. l-Yerl  Ahlin will preside at the pi.wio,  and between the pieces there will he a  musical selection, a sung by Mrs 11. A.  Brown and a banjo and guitar duet by  Messrs. Barber and f.ewis.

Shaw, station;  An Item for the C. P. R.  [diogkxes as a cynic]  Tt is customary at this season to  wish our friends (real and apparent),  and even' very slight acquaintances,  "A Merry Christmas." But I am of  the opinion that '��������� merry " Christmases  belong to the past. That past���������familiar to most of us by booklore���������when  Christmas was Christmas; when the  festivities were kept up for a whole  week, with all the etceteras pertaining  thereto���������the boar's head and wassail  bowl in the baronial hall and the roast  ox and flagons of foamy tile in the  kitchen; later, when the Christmas-  tree was set up in the great hall at the  manor house and loaded with toys and  sweets for the village children ; when  the " waits" played from house to  house, tind the carol singers trudged  through the snow to outlying farmhouses on Christmas Eve" to usher in  the Christmas morn with song;.,when  the Christmas cheer in every house in,  Morrie England, from squire's mansion  to laborer's cottage, was the customary  roast goose and plum pudding, the  latter comestible being brought in till  ablaze and bedecked with sprigs of  holly; when master and man met on  a common footing in ' the capacious  kitchen and danced "Sir Roger" with  rosy - cheeked maids , and high - bred  dames while the yule log-was blazing  on the,hearth,'and"the mistletoe over  all. That was Christmas ! We know  not Christmas as' our fathers knew'it.  This festive season has not, the power  to expand, men's hearts as of yore.  The struggle for existence, which is  becoming more terrible every year, has  blunted the finer sensibilities of the  working classes, while in the eager  chase after the Almighty'Dollar the  -broader sentiments, of a common humanity which formerly" prevailed at  Christmastide seems to be entirely  wanting,in those, who "finance" and  "manipulate," but do no manual work.  The fact, so often1 commented 'upon,  that " the poor are growing poorer and  the rich are getting richer" may not be.  so observable in this country as in tlic/  older settled centres'of civilization, riutjJ.  even here the rule holds good iii its  small way, and men who havo but recently left the ranks of the workers to  take up a line that pays better, do not  hesitate to use their petty power for  their own aggrandisement, heedless of  the wounds th'ey cause by trampling  on finer sensibilities than they ever  possessed. Successful selfishness is now  so puiTed up that not even the memories which Christinas brings can pierce  its hide-bound armor of self-esteein, or  in western phraseology, ".swelled-hetid.''  The words written years ago-, are still  true to-day : .'',,'  "Man's inhumanity to man      } ' ���������   '-*  , 'Makes countless inillicyis mourn."  -But to-day tho-inhumanity is-hidden  behind the smiling ninsk 'and the outstretched hand. Not. the.inhumanity  of the lash, or the prison, or the torture, but of,,deceit, back-biting, two-  faced ncss and other jin-du-sii cle accomplishments. " Do unto all men as,you  would they should do unto you " was  the command of J-liin whose nativity  we celebrate.., But this command has  been twisted into something more  suitable to tho age of pietence in which  we live���������"Love thy neighbor to Ids  face, but jeer and ridicule him behind  hi.s back." But, thank heaven, till men  are not liars, neither are they all hypocrites, and the genuineness and sincerity one meets with now and then  goes far to reconcile one to living out  his brief span here below, Antf what  will it matter in a few years' timel  When the tenement is laidc.away, ir.  the ground and the sentient i-jing  steps into the presence of I-'-" M.-ikrr, j  wheie all men are equal, what will it '  matter then whether it< life on this j  planet, had been one of success and j  duplicity or'on''; of jprit-Lti'iO-s and-,  failure?

Eleven lamps were placed  in position along Front street on Wednesday, and were till lit up for the first  time the same evening. The ell'eet was  very pretty, especially from the railway,  the lamps giving a nice steady, mellow  light, almost equal to gas. Tlie scene  was stranger-to_ReveIstoki;ins, and it  required no great stretch of fancy to  imagine oneself looking on a winter  scene in a panoramic picture, say "St.  Petersburg ,hy night," the long street  covered with snow, the glimmer of the  distant lamps, and tho illumined win-  , flows aiding the imagination wonderfully. The lamps can be regulated to burn  any number of hours, but on Wednesday night they appeared to have been  allowed full limit, .-is they were still  burning at 7:80 on Thursday morning.  It has, been calculated that the expense for oil will be. about $7 a week of  seven'nights, which, with the cost of  attendance, will have to be met by subscription. But, of course, the lamps  will not be lit on moonlight nights, and  in the summer they will not be needed,  so that the expense per year will not  be so very great. Everybody, or tit  least, every householder, in the town  should endeavor to, contribute something, tis the convenience will not be  confined to dweller*? on Front street  alone. The improvement, is so gieat  that one cannot, help asking, "Why  ever was this not1 done before?" It  gave such a tinge of warm cdn'il'ort to  the street that many people took a  promenade oh Wednesd.-ty night just to  enjoy the novelty. ' This 'matter was  ventilated by '"Diogenes" some weeks  ago, and we tire very , glad to  .see that, ^n'.s remarks , have borne  fruit. A company, .composed, of the  leading tradesmen and hotel-keepers,  lias been formed and will undertake  the lighting of (ho streets, but 'it is expected that all citizens will subscribe  towards the expense.  It, has been said thtit "the station  leads." If the people! at the station desire' to lc.i.l'in the matter of street  lighting, we would like to suggest, the  erection' of a few lamps in the dark  roadway between the Union Hotel and  the driig store. It was not very long  ago we stiw ti man walk into the stream  outside Sibbald's store in the darkness.  After passing the glare from the, store  'window it is almostjuipossible, on a  very dark night, to see the bridge. It  is,too late for thu station to "lead," but  we hope they will follow.

"Much Ado About Notliinsr."  wtto  him  A fairly well attended public meeting was held in the school house on  Wednesday evening last for the purpose of discussing the renewal of the  charter of the'Red Mountain Railway,  application for which is now pending  before the legislature.- The meeting  was the outcome of a letter leceived  from Mr. J. M. Kellie; M.P.P..  asked that instructions he wired  on the matter.   <  Mr. II. N. Coursier was elected chair-'  man, and Mr. T. L. Haig secretary.  Mr. Coursier, in explaining the object of the meeting, said it was a question whether we were willing to assist,  outside:���������property and some 'townsite  boomers, whose only object apparently  was'-to build up'the town of North port  at the. expense of the Trail Creek mines,  oi* by refusing the extension encourage  home industry by having the ores  transported through the district and  probably smelted this? side the line. He  asked Mr. Vail for an expression of  opinion as that gentleman had recently  been through the district, "and therefore had considerable knowledge of the  situation. ���������, -  In response to the chairman's request  Mi. Vail said from his knowledge  of  the matter he did not think  it advantageous to the district tliat the request  for an extension   should   be   granted,  lie   explained   that the ores of  Trail  Creek were of a low grade which would  not bear shipment for long distances,  and  to   be   handled, profitably would  have to be smelted as  near as possible  to the place'of production. "The mines  were located 2200 feet 'above  the river  and the ore could be brought by a tramway to Trail,' where a smelter could be  erected.    It was   a question  whether  this trade went east or. west.   It was'  likely that the C. P. R. would connect  from Robson and all ores and material  could be brought over Canadian transportation .lines.   Tho charter in quesT  tion   was   granted   upon   the   12th of  April, 1893, and had two years' to run,  which the   company   could   have   extended for a  further   period   of   two  years  by commencing work, and can  still be extended if work is commenced  before the'12th of April, 180.^   Therefore he could see no good reason why  the company did  not'extcud  the time  themselves, when it was entirely within their power to do so.   It looked considerably -like' a  speculation,   because  the company could as yet only build  to the boundary line'and could not get  to their destination before the Colville  reservation was opened.   The 'promoters were  the same people who con-,  trolled  the Spokane & Northern railway, which road'had shown an inclination   to   embarrass   the   trade of tho  Trail Creek district to   the advantage  of   their  own   interests on  the 'other  side of the line.   For those reasons he  was opposed  Lo granting, the  request  for an extension.  Mr. H. A. Brown wanted to know if  the best inteiests of tlie miners'in the  district would be served by obstructing the extension of this charter. They  were in a much better position to judge,  and the matter should be left to them  to decide. This charter carried with it  no exclusive rights, anil therefore it was  open to any corporation or individual  to build a railroad there if they so desired. The company, he considered,  were acting in good faith, and it appeared to be a, business-like method  not to staicconstruction on one section  ot'ithe load until a .right of way could  be secured over the Col >'ille reservation.  All Americans who come lieie with  capital meant business. It was much  better that the miners at Trail be afforded Mil opportunity to ship their  ores by the shortest route to the smelters of the present than that they  should be compelled to take the more  cii;euitous route Lo the same smelters  or the smelters of 'the future. Therefore he would not be a party to attempt  to block a pioposition which'meant the  investment of c ipitat in' the country.  Mr. T. L. Haig was doubtful if the  company really ment business. They  might let another two years elapse be  trade Of that district would be of little  benefit to Revelstoke. At most, it  would only mean the switching of a  few cars here.  Mr. Haig said there appeared to be  an impression that the renewal of the  charter meant the building of the road,  but it did nor follow that such would  be the case.  . After some further discussion of n  desultory character, Mr. Haig moved,  seconded by Mr._F. Fraser, "that the  meeting here assembled to discuss the  renewal of the charter of the Red  Mountain Railway feels that it has not  sufficient information in its possession  to enable it to decide, either for or  against theproposed renewal and therefore leaves the matter entirely to the  disci etion of our member, and at the  same time thanking him for the compliment paicl in consulting us iu the  matter."  This was carried unanimously, i  THE PLACE TO BUY  THE SILVER BOW MINE.'    ,  Sir,���������Your mining readers, of whom  there many, will be interested to hear  the result obtained from a shipment of  about two carloads of copper ore from  the Silver Bow mine near Illecillewaet,  this last summer. <        '  T1h> name of the company who mined  and shipped the,ore is the Fish River  Copper & Silver Mining Company, of  Hamilton, Ontario, and ��������� the Chicago  Copper & Refining Company is'" the  name of, the firm who smelted it. The  returns are as follows:    ' '  Weight of ore sent, 31,060 pounds.  Yield: Gold, 9 303-1000 ounces; silver,  111 97-1000ounces; copper, 7,500pounds.  This, is equal to about 25*S per cent, of  'copper, 7 ounces "silver per ' ton,  and  $11 gold per ton.' ' ���������    '  The price paid per ounce for the silver is not'stated ; it was no doubt the  market value at that time.  - The copper wasi'paid for at. about 9  cents per pound for refined copper,  which seems to me' a1 very low figure,  but still very useful for reference to  enable miners to estima te the probable  value of their ore.  The main point, however, w.hich I am  very'glad to impress on your readers  is this: that notwithstanding considerable necessary expense incurred in  mining and haulage, and the very low  price paid for the metal extracted,  there ivas a very handsome profit on  the transaction.'      ' '   ���������  ���������Next summer willcdoubtless see a  much stronger development of this  particular .claim, and most likely a  concentrator will be erected close by,  which will vastlv increase the profits.  Your readers are indebted to the  courtesy of W. A. Wood, Esq., Hamilton, Ont:, for the'details above given,  and in times like these, when it is so  difficult to .ascertain the truth about  the value of ores, any reliable information such as thiss is doubly valuable,  and I feel sure that all mining men  will wish success to the Fish Riverc  Company,' who have stuck to their  mine through all these non-paying  times, and have finally proved it to be.  a sound and profitable concern.  The next thing must be a smelter in  British Columbia, preferably near Rev7  elstoke, and then prosperity will once  more shine on our district; "Oh let it  bo soon!" A. H. Holdich.  PUBLIC SCHOOL EXAMINATION.  $200 REWARD.  A reward of $200 has bean offered for  the recovery of the bodies of Andrew  Wh.-ilen and Ed. S. Wilson, who were  drowned in the. Columbia river at this  place on December I2th undermost unfortunate circumstances. The reward  will stand good to the amount of $100  for each body, and notices have been  posted to this effect by William Kir-  kup, Andy Whalen's partner. Several  men are searching along the river below here, but it, is not generally believed that, they will be successful, the  Columbia seldom giving up ils dead.  3<3ilw,-ud Whalen, Andy**-/ brother, arrived in io.vn on Tuesday from Qu'Ap-  pclle, where lie has a ranch.

It appeared Lo him like an attempt to  .monopolize the means of communication to the mines.'    '  Mr. Brown again pointed out that  the granting of this request did not exclude anybody else from the district.  The more railways the better it would  be for the camp.  Mr. Vail Said he did not oppose the  building of the railway, but the company h.'ul it in their power to extend  the time themselves. They might  turn a hundred shovelsful of dirt and  thereby secure the. desired extension.  He thought they should lie held to the  original conditions of their charter.  Mr. F. Fraser considered that the  matter might safely ho left to the discretion of Mr. Kellie, who, no doubt,  was in possession of all the facts. It was  no new thing to extend charters of this  nature, and as tho product of those  mines must be shipped to foreign  smelters it particularly affected the  mine operators, and they .should not be  interfered with in l.hoirchoice of routes,  lie did not consider that Mr. Corbin,  who already had a large amount invested in tlie country, could be fairly-  called a mere townsite boomer. If the  company wanted an extension they  should be allowed to have it.  Air. A. H. Holdich, being asked by  the Chairman for his opinion, said that  lie thought it was better to have the  ores smelted somewhere than nowhere  ���������even if it meant the construction of  a smelter at, Northport.  Mr. Ed. Adair said if the company  did not want a bonus or any spocia'l  privilege thev should be given the extension asked for.  Mr. O. II. Allen considered it was a  question which should be left lot be men  at Trail Creek. Personally be did not  feel like placing any ob-itruciion in Ihe  v.-.iy of outside capital, no matter  where it came from.  1 Mi.

Then followed the most pleasant  item o������ the afternoon���������a presentation  by Essie Hamilton and Florence Fraser,  on behalf of the pupils of the school, to  Mr. Laing.  In a neat little speech Essie introduced the subject and handed a cuff  and collar case (in leather), while Florence followed with a satin lined necktie  case. l  Mr. Laing was somewhat at a loss to  know how to reply, a.s he had not the  slightest hint of what was to take place.  The reports for the month were distributed, and the results of the written  exaniinal ions held during the past ten  days were made known.

neither to rirrht nor left at tbe fifty dis-

in expectation on tho ring which was

When the grand stand began to fill a
good looking young man,   laying down'
his rac-3 card, catalogue and unibrella,
^took his seat beside her.
The woman chattered away to tho little girl about tho forthcoming races, referring eagerly to her own card and
'cataior_'iie a�� she did so, and ijnito un-
coiisciiiusly interesting the young man.
