Here is  New,.Brick Station to,be Built  for .Revelstoke���������Extensive  " Improvements to be- Carried  out on Shuswap arid  Moun-  , tain - Division���������The S. & 0.  Branch and the Company.  It is understood in. niilwny'ciicles,  though the matter ha, not yet taken  (illicial shape, that the C. I". Ii. will  spend n large sum in iiiii-rovciuciits  nut ho Shuswap anePMoiinl.iiii division  and at Revelstoke this year. The,  resident engineer, .Mr. Ford, hiisli-en  busy for sonic time nn plans for a new  fetation antl improved yard accommodation at licvelsloke to meet'the increasing trnllic, iind appropriations to  the extent of $1,700,000 have been  asked for thc .Mountain and SIiumviiii  division by the superintendent in  charge,-Mr. Kilpatrick., While these  will not all he grunted, it 'is stated  there is no doubt about the "new  station and yard accommodation being provided at Revelstoke Ihis year.  The site ��������� selected for the ��������� station is  where Bourne J3ros. old store stands.  The- building will be of biick and  stone and is estimated to co=t $25,000.  Thc-sidehill will be cut away onuhe  north s'i'clo of-the present station road'  nnd Ihe'm.tiii track will pass through  the site of the present iMcCnity block.  The yards- will be extended ��������� and  additional tracks laid. ' .Mattels for  regret in the arrangements are that  the ttation is not, to ,be built on the  south side of llie- track where the  public convenience would be much  better suited, while the convenience of  handling" the south train will ,be no  better than lit present. The situation  of the company's ��������� hotel is one-objection the' company have to taking  their station to the south side of the  track, nnd'another objection is 'that  such change would stand'in tho way  of thc proposed yaul arrangements.'  The deviation-bf the lhaiu- line at  Clnnwilliam was taken over by the  company Christmas week, and is a  gre.it improvement to the permanent  way. The portion of the line through  the Eagle pass, which proved most  dangerous on account ot snowslidcs,  is avoided'1 by the deviation. The  grade over the-sumniifc of thc pass has  also been considerably reduced., --��������� 7 -  ". Another piece of track will be' biiilt  in the Eagle pass this winter to" still  further improve the road. , ,   '";"  Steps will(be taken to remove the  rest of the wooden bridges on the  Shuswap and Mountain Division \liir  | popular demand for a daily, service  I under piesent conditions, and the only  I'way to get it i.s to get after the provincial government to amend the ngiee-  mciit for the npe'ration of, the branch,  and to urge the doiiiiiiic'iii'govcriiinent  t, help with their mail allowance.

The laying of 51 1-2 miles of SO lb.  steely on the Shuswap arid TMoiintain  Division has just been completed, so  the division.-is now l.iid with heavy  steel from Laggan lo k'ainloops. The  district engineer of this division, J. X.  Fordo, has had a busy time of it getting out the season's estimates, and  has a heavy season's work ahead of  him.     ' >  S. & O. KAII.VVAY.  ,."\Yc have been at some pains  to .ascertain from the O. P. K.  their  views  on the  Okanagan   service,   the  prospects of a-daily train this winter, and  improvements in fcrnflic arrangement'-.  We have given full expression, to  thc  views of the valley, and it is only  fair  to both sides  that  the  C. P."E.* view  should also be known.     The company  recognize the service is   not' ,what   it  ought to be, .or what they  would  like  it to be, but they point out  the S.-  it  0. branch does  not   belong   to'then)  and is being operated 'under  contract  with thc Provir. -ial Government, who  control it.   "The road vvas poorly built  in the first place and  will   not stand  heavy tinllic.   It was enormously overcapitalized, and has to pay inteicst on  a.summuch   larger' than   its   actual  cost of construction.     The  company  has no title io or interest in the roiuf-  hed beyond that of temporary  lessees.  If thoy owned the road, or had a  title  to it for HiUicioiit  length  of  time  to  warrant it.   they   would   rebuild   the  road, lay heavier steel, put in improved shipping facilities, aiicli as slips at  Okanagiin Landing to enable them to'  handle freight better between the train  and steamer, and would  put a  better  engine and  ee-iiipinent  on   the  road.  As to a daily service in winter, a careful tally of ti.e traflie.   the   company  -Jontend, does not   wiiriaiit  it.  from a  btisines.- point of view. though its nil-  vantage to  the district   is   admitted,  e-pcciiilly as icgards the mail   service.  This matter was  fully  gone into  between the olliciiib of the company and  the  railway  commissioner.-.,  and   the  comniis-ioners   recognized    the   only  way*-, of arranging a daily service were  by the amendment of  the  agieeniiiil  with the   provincial   government  on  one hand and a subsidy from   the dominion po.-tal authorities on thaotlier.  The commissioners   promised   to   lay  this matter hi fore both governments.  The company  contend thc  S. it O.  is not a paying line  lo  them.     Thoy  get 00 per cent, of  the   receipts  and  thi- i- no more than the cost of operation over their system, without allowing any prolit.     Tho line is given full  credit for it,-  passenger  revenue   and  freight mileage.

Tokio, Jan. 11.���������Information has  reached certain reliable quarters here  that-Russiin generals in Manchuria  iire'losing confidence in General Ku-  ropatkin, and that thc Russian situation around Mukden is a serious one.  It is feared that if Kiirnpntkiii nt  tacks the Japanese position along the  ohakhe riser he will court disaster,  and that his further rctieat will menu  the demoralization of the army.  This information goes on to say  that there is constant bickering at the  Russian headquarters n Manchuria,  and that the soldiers are discontented.  The information alleges thisNs undermining the morals of the Russian  army, and it is pointed out that recent  skirmishes and outpost brushes indicate the Rustinn soldiers are becoming disheartened, as thoy do not show  their former lighting capacity or  qualities.

It was pointed out it vvas just as   important to the Northwest as to British  Columbia that  the  lumber  industry  should be put oh a  firm, footing,   as  several; hundred   Northwest ' settlers  found work in ,thc  logging  camps of  British Columbia  every' winter   ancl  earned suflicient  to enable  them   to  'hold "their   pre-emptions   and   make  successful settlers, while this province  win also an important, market for the  Northvvest'products.' -   The depression  in the lumber industry in  iho   mountains wns emphatically shown by  the  facts that'thc Empire Lumber'Company had shut down both   then*   mills'  this winter and vveie opt-i.-uiiig  only  one logging  camp   for -ne-xt  season's  supply ^if   logs, ;,that  the   Revelstoke  and ���������Arrowhead  Jjiunber   Compnnys'  mills had been  shut  down,   that' 'the  Big Bend Lumber Company bad closed  all their logging camps, that the Yalc-  'Columbia Company proposed shutting  down, and that  the  Columbia "River  Lumber   Company   had   'shut   clown  their Beaver  mill   for   an .indefinite  period,.and were not taking out a foot  of logs.   This meant that several hundred men' were thrown  out  of  work,  and that.jthe  payroll, of _the "district  would be much less" this season" tlTan  last.    One speaker vvenl_so J.ir  as   to  say lie knew it was- a 'fact   that -men  depending on tho lumbcr"it-.elustry for  work were starving in the city at  the'  present moment.  Copies of the resolutions were ordered to be sent to dominion ministers"  Hon. Senator Templcnian, , W. A'  Gal'iher, M. P., and oilier li. ' C-  members.  It was also stated that ns 4L C  lumbermen asked the duty on second  class lumber be. thc sninc ns the  American tarilV the American lumbermen were making an effort to have  the duty on importations to thoStatos  cut down to $1, as they could still  successfully ' compete against, that.,  and it vvas considered booicr for the  board to ask the straight duty of $2,  which would ensure thc ni,i**kct beimr  conseived for the lumbermen of Ji C  instead of being swamped with Ameii-  can lumber to the killing ol* the  industry.

board    threatened    to   remove  his
name from   the   register   miles?; he
apologised   to   Dr.   Proctor.     This
the other man declined  to do. contending his   statements   were true
and justified.      The medical boa id
took steps to carry   out  its  threat,
whereupon  Joseph   Martin, K. C,
issued,an   injunction, against  the
board.   ' What concerns .llie public
is   that   an    institution , like   the
medical board can become a school
for scandal and  that''its   members
can   grossly   abuse     tlie     public
privileges given   them   to' the advantage of one practitioner and the
disadvantage of his rival,who  may
be an abler medical man  than   he.
We have , no �� hesitation in saying
that in view of   the   facts   in   this
case.'it is the first   diity   of parliament lo repeal thc legislation constituting this   medical   board, anel
to devise some   plan   of   licensing
medical  practitioners   which'shall
be free from abuses brought about
by any,  professional  ,rivalry .and
jealousy,' and  which- shall ensure
to every medical man of   siillicieni
knowledge   to   conduct    his ; professional work properly the freedom
of practice, to   which   such knowledge   and   skill   entitle   him,   in

THE 'MINING LAWS.   '
It   reflects'-little credit 'on  the
McBride government that although
- it has been in office a   year it  has
not yet made, any   move towards
. amending   the   grievances    under
b which the mining industry suffers.
'  -These grievances andjtheir remedies
' have been presented to the government   again    ancl   again   by ' Ihe
practical men   at   the-head  of the
- Provincial     Mining     Association.
' The mining industry is  one of the
. , most .important  in   the province
��� and should be encouraged ih every
legitimate way.'"1 Instead of that it
lis hampered  by unjust antiquated
laws, burdened by a grosslv;,'unfair
- system of taxation, and the mining
operations throughout the country
are tit the mercy of any.cliiim-
jumper or unscrupulous black-guard
who comes along and cares to
plaster a placer claim over mineral
rights. , Eight years ago there were
27 dividend paying  mines   operat-
- ing in the province. Today there
are not a dozen, and'the falling off
is mainly due to   bad   legislation
'which an incompetent government
makes no effort to amend.
To-the Merchants-and

''A'few weeks ago a  special   meeting'
of t'hc,Okaiiiigiin   Board  nf  Trade vvs
called   to   hen    an,,'  i!    , .-s what Mi.
Williiimson'ofXelson h"r.  .si say about
his   scheme  foi   a,ntelcphone system
throughout thc valley.    Ho slated the
'system - would   cost, from   ,$20,000 to
$30,000 to install,'and that "'he 'would
inst,11 'the system   if he could get 100
subscribers   to  pay   him   $1 a month
rental,   $5   'for   installing  'phone   in
their place of business and alsoasm.ill
fee', say 25 or 50<cents'ovory - time they
talk   to    Endoib'y   or   Kolowna..' He
guaranteed to put in 11  lirsD-olnss  system   for, that  amount, and I a*�� sure
it is veiy kind and considerate of  him
lo give us such good   terms.    Hut the
question arises, is he charging enough?
For   ive   would   not   .like to  see thc
'phone installed and, then   have to go
down, in   our  jeans ancl pay an extra
tax of say one dollar  a" month   more,
because-such   things have been done,'
ancl ifc would   pay   to   investigate  his
system   thoroughly.    Suppose   he" is
out   $30,000   for   investment   in- the
start, what has he  got?   ,1 Ic   has 'hiss
ines'built,   his   'phones paid for and
J00 subscribeis  at  $-18-a year, $0 for
installation   and   at Jeast'$l,��00   for
fees for long'distance set vice, or in all
$G,S00.   Allowing $1,S00 for expenses,
-'- A PROSPEROUS CITY.    ,
The city of Revelstoke is to be
congratulated on the excellent
showing made by the water and
and light department for the year.
The net profits of this .department
were practically 25 per cent on the
capital 'debentures issued for the
acquisition of the .system. The
investment is thus proving a magnificent one for the city ancl the
citizens will for all time be under
a debt of gratitude to the man who
engineered and successfully carried
through the deal", the late Mayor,
M. J. O'Brien.- The unfortunate
part of the transaction is that the
debentures have not been sold, but
investors will rind nowhere a better
or safer municipal investment than
these water ancl light debentures.
An investment, that earns '25 per
cent is a snap that is noi to be gol
hold of every day. There is no
sounder city in the province than
Revelstoke and-there are no municipal securities offered that .-hould
be in better demand.
ABUSE OF PRIVILEGES.
Kamloops ha.- developed one of
the grossest abuse.- of professional
privileges heard oi in this province.
A Belgian doctor started practice
there, and by his ability ancl
tiicce=- organised a large practice,
wbicn cut iii.o that of Di. Proctor.
We have known Dr. Proctor a long
time and held him in the highe.-t
esteem " ��� ow   stanch in a
_no=itior. ���   anything   but
'cfrgglitable .. niin.-elf and the
meci\SKboard. In conversation
with him the other doctor told him
he was weak in medical knowledge
of matters affecting the brain. Dr.
Proctor is a member of the medical
board and the Belgian doctor
claims that as "a member of, that
board Dr. Proctor used the information he had given him to make
his question.-- mainly on subjects
affecting the brain with a view to
nullifying his examination. f The
Belgian doctor narrated the incident,    whereupon    Dr.   Proctor
leaves-  him   an   income  of- $5,000 on
$30,000 of  an  outlay.    In'two  years
there   will   be at least 200 phones in
the   valley,   but   the   last 100 will not
cost as much as the first, for the main
lines   will   have been elected, but still
we would be payingMr.Williarnson $18
a year,oplus lung distance rates.   Now.
gentlemen, this i.s a good   pioposition
for, the business men and Mr. Williamson but is it good for the funnels? J t is
not.    Why?    because,it is too expensive.    A farmer does not need a 'phone
as much as a   merchant,'but when he
does, it should boat hand.    There arc
going to be very few   fanners who' will
pay $30 a year for the use of a 'phone,
and without thc farmer tho  merchant
will only get a half service.    What we
need is a telephone system run by the
people  of thc valley, and, if there is a
good thing in it. why   should   we  not
all   enjoy   it,  for   we  do the paying?
While in the  Willamette Valley,Ore.,
a week ago, 1 investigated, the mutual
system run there, aud it is certainly a
success.    The  farmers   and   business
men nil have   telephone   connection,
and what do you suppose it is costing
them?    Why, only  $2  a  year or 16jj
cents  a  month.    Now, that  is a vast
ditl'erence  fiom  $-1 per month.    Vou
ask if IG5 cents is all the  cost?   It is
not.    There   is   the   building   ci the
line   to   be    eonsideied.    In   Oregon
it     cost     on   ' an -  average     about
$23.00    for    each      subsciibei      for
a   'phone   'connection,   but   then   he
owns his 'phone.      Of course   in this
valley it will cost   more.     In   Oiegon
poles only cost 50c, each   set   up   in
position, while hereSve might give   .is
an estimate  $2.00  each,  allowing  25
poles tn the mile, wiio :h $7.00 a mile.
Ynu say it will  cost   the   f.irnieis too
much.    Not so.    It is true  the  farmer.- aie quite a distance apart, but  the
town people will   bear  tqual  expense
with the farmers.      Mvpense  nl  management���We   have   nn   heavy  sleet

The commercial development ol" the Marconi
system has reached a stage of perfection never
'i
before attained by any similar invention within a
similar period of time. When the Marconi System
gets into full working order the price of it's stock
will run up rapidly, perhaps into-ihe thousands,
as did the stock of the Edison Electric Light,
which sold at $4,000 less than a year after it'was-
offered at $100: Think of Bell Telephone Shares
paid $200,000 in dividends on every $i66"share.,
Stock is still
selling* at

Its Settlement and Resources.  I.UMllY. i  Lumby is the centre of one ,of the  finest tracts of country to bo found in  Canada.    (lore is a large plain, consisting of meadows which   grow  hay  crops that cannot be siiip,it.������cd in   (he  Okanogan valley,     In the  hands   of  snia 1 iii' meis tbeie   is a   fortune  for  Lumby in the dairying  ineliisliy,  I'pr  there is no part of'the province which  has  liner qualificiitiebns  for dairying.  Indeed dairying, mining stuck anil bay  should be thc principal pursuits of,the  settleis here.     Tbeie is a .first,, class  market for butter all -the"year  round  and the area of meadow  land  around  'Lumby is  sulliciciit   to   support   not  only one, but seveial creameries.' The  Coldstream and Besset  ranches -alone  could    keep   a   first   class' creamery  going.    ,   , 0  Lumby   was' originally   settled   by  Fiench   Canadians, .vvlio deserve the  greatest credit for the  industry they  nave shown and the splendid manner  in which they  have   improved   their  home.-teads. .   There   are  ninny   line  residences and   farm   outbuildings  lithe district, and Luniby wears an  air  of prosperity.   Hundred;-of acres have  been cleared, drained,  cultivated and  fenced, and there nre.no finer f.irms to  be seen anywhere.   The hay output of  the district'is immense.    The meadow  lands cost iibout JjilO an-acic to clca,,  but'with   the.   necessary   drainage   it  'must have cost a great deal of labor to  putjthe principal farms in their  present line, condition.' , t*  , The townsitc of Lumby was acquired  by Mr. Morund (now ol Poplar)   from  Mr. Norris, the present .'ownei 'of tlie  Rain's Horn hotel at Lumby, 'and was  subdividedjnto lots,' a good   manyuui  which,have been-purchased, iind.theie  arc a-good1 many   buildings   in ,thc  tow nsite., -Lumby is' the key  to  the  Mabel,Lake country on the noithwcst;  to' Cherry Cree'k, Harris Creek, Crcigh-  ton IValley,tp the southeast, an(L,Shu-  bvvap and Sugar lakes to the east, antl  will one   day   be   the centre   oft an  extensive and thriving settlement'.     ,  - The country is said to be a'counter-  part of the famous Delta.lands' but, it  appears to us it has'thc advantages''ol  that famous agricultural section.without pts disadvantages.     The  rain-fall  atYbumby is much less'than"on  the  Delta,   thc    snowfall,   comparatively  light, and first-class water can  be got  anywhere.   ,        ..,      -  '' The land is rich alder bottom.   The  hayicrop averages two and a half tons  to the acre.                       ��������� ���������,  f From Lumby a weekly stage is  run  to Mabel Lake  by Mr. 'Procter, who  also'condncts the post-ollicc' at that  place, aud ' a" stage   runs   to Vernon  twice a' week and  another to Cherry  Creek weekly,',  ,              -  - *���������        '  Great progress is being made in, the  valley,* settlers are clearing, up.their  land and 'there is evident uroiness  everywhere. -      .'     -   ,  ' The value of the district for dairying  is' recognised by the settlers them-,  selves' as they - have iu .-view, running  from 401) to 500 cows -for creamery  supply!" ' " ,  "'Better, transportation would be a  great assistance to Lumby, and the  hope is cherished ttnit one day a railway will be built fiom Arrow Lake to  the Okanagan Valley by Cheny Cieek  and White Valley. The government  had a.survey made lor a tramway but  the estimated cost, $250,000 precluded  any further action in the matter. The  district vvas originally' settled by  Fiench Canadians, who have'carried  out extensive improvements and  whose industryand progress has been  most creditable to them.  A good many settlers havebeen  coming into this section of countiy  from eastern Canada and the States.  At Mabel Lake there is a settlement  of Russian Swedes who aie getting  along well, and on the Shuswap, towards.Cherry Creek, there is a settlement of German Seventh Day Ad-  ventists, who are- au enterprising  people. These people say hundreds ot  others would come into this part of  the valley if they could get land.  The valley north of Lumby averages  three miles   in   width.      Magnificent  fruit is grown in thc Shuswap  valley,  where even peaches   ripen   well   and  tomatoes   are   ripened     with    gaeat  success..    The-snowfall  is light and  stock winter on the ranges fairly well.  The ground  is clear of  snow on the'  ranges east of the Shuswap before the  snow is gone in the Okanogan Valluy.  In   evidence   of the excellent   advantages  of   settlement    at   Lumby  it is claimed grass" comes in earlier on  the ranges here in   spring   than   any  point ol the valley.    G. -Liuiei, who is  one of the most  experienced   settlors  in thc district, points out.as evidence  of the fertility of the district that  he  has grown oats and timothy each   six  feet high, and claims there is no place  in Canada   to   beat   this   districcfor  raising hay.     He has put up as much  as 17 tons from a days cutting. Clover  grows enormously, and  does not  run  out as in the east���������in fact he reganls  it as perennial       He   has   seen   hind  that   lias   not   been  ploughed for 1-1  years grow as good hay crops as  when  first laid down.      The difficulty   is if  anything is to keep the hay ciop from  becoming   too   heavy    and    this   is  remedied by running the ha now over  the ground in early spring which   has  the effect of thinning the crop.     The  frost is out of the   giound   as soon as  snow is off'.  As there is a good deal of clearing  going on in the district the settlers  contend the government ihould continue to supply powder at cost, as it  would be a great assistance to them,  ���������ro nr: (*ox'ii.nui:ii.
