The  new station and   yard   improvements,  as well as  extensive  improvements, to  thc porniiinenl. way east   and west are  assured, and will give  employment to  an immense labor force,'������o   that   thc  rail way. payroll will be the heaviest in  any year since construction.  ,   The   new   station   brings   with   it  numerous subsidiary improvements-of  the'most up-to-diito 'character.

Burns ' and Co. will  start work this spiing oil their line  brick block at corner 'of McKenzic  Avenue and First Street.  The' Bourne - Macdonald - iUoscrop  Company will start work as soon lis  possible on' their building on First  Street.  Two of the friendly societies talk of  investing in real ��������� estate aiid substantial buildings.  Two large brick corner blocks nic  projected, 'but arrangements 'are not  completed sullicicntly to enable us to  announce when the work will begin.  There is every reason to believe a  substantial vote will be made at the  present session of thc dominion house  for a post ollice and custom house for  Revelstoke.  A substantial grant is also expected  for river improvements, and the provincial government should do some  thing in the way of work to open up  the country.  I Fish Creek, which are every bit as  | good as those now being operated,  and wo look for big'things from that,  section of the country. ' There is no  more promising , in in oral' dibit the  world over than the' Lardcait,,'and no  locality whore'there nic so iniiny excellent mineral showings.  Then on the Arrow 'Lakes -the Big  Showing is likely lo come to Mic front  as a leading zinc producer.  In the Bond there will' ho three  hydraulic" companies al work anil  three lode properties will bo operated.  i.uviukkixci.  .   The (lcpro-,*"ion in lumbering is only  temporary.     The industry is ono Unit  must soon lesiinic activity, employing  runny hundreds of   men  from tho' Big  Bond to the Arrow Lakes.    "The  Eni-  pire Lumber Company will ho operating two mills and the' Arrowhcnd-and  Big   Bend    Lumber   Companion   will  both be running full blast,in   spring.  ThcHovclstokc   Lumber  Company is  making preparations for a big season's  cut.     .The   Canadian Sawmills Coin-  pany is said to- bo   getting -out of its  trouble nnd   ready for' a   big season's  business." The , new, mill being built,  at-Threo Valley Lake 'by  the  Aluiuly  'Lumber   Company   will , be ,an   important 'addition    to   the, lumbering  industry of the district.      The   Yale  Columbia Lumber , Company   will be  big shipper)., nnd, the-ICiiniloops  Lumber Comp.'tny.will have their now mill  under way at k'nriiloops and their mill  at Fiiidorliydn full swing. -   ���������  The, Royal Lumber Company will  probably establish their mill d'uring  the coming season -to handle their  Lnideiiii, llivci* lumber-mid the Empire  Lumber .Company/and the Royal  'Lumber-Company-have' in 'prospect  tho establishment of mills on the Shu-  swap Lakes at at early (bite to handle  timber thoy own in the Adams River  district. ' .'.',,,  j Never has the outlook been brighter,  belter and more hopeful than today.  Thc prosperity of'the cast is coining  west. Those who have borne the lienl  mid-' burden of the'day���������who h.ivc  waited patiently through the years'  for'the development of the wealth elf  this section are about to, reap'their  reward, iintl they deserve it  Wc have"to ask the people of llovel-  stokc   lo   pull .together   shoulder to  shoulder for  the common   good,  and  for their own.,     No "mutter   how  wc  dilVer   in   politics or   religion  let the  best effort of every man  bo put  forth  to do the best he can   to 'pioinoto' the  good and progress  of  the   district, to  sink individual differences and realise  tlniL these are nothing, compared with  the grand object in view. -  ".'. With ,_a ..payroll .if.something like  $2,000,000 in sight for Revelstoke and  district there   is   every   reason to feel  jubilant, " hopeful 'and  satisfied  over  the outlook for the new year that  has  opened.     No   country   has   liner  or  better resoures and natural   .wealth in  tinibei-'and mineral,  while, the,many  spots of rich land in   the valleys   will  make homes  for hundred':  of ,s ttlers  who 'have   a   ready   market al their  door for all they can produce.    As the  industries   and   resources   of the district are developed   and   built, up so  will be the city   that'  is   its business  centre,"but   to   achieve  the best it is  necessary that   wc   should  all-give a  strong pull, a long pull, and'a pull  all  together, and people will hcnstoiii-dic-i  at what can be done by    mutual   help  and co-operation.

The high  grade silver-lend ores of the Lardenn  aro attinutmg great attention, and the  activity in that section will extend  over the whole district from Poplar to  Big Bend. '        ��������� ,  Thc Great Northern Mines is preparing-to res tunc active work at  Poplar.aiid will, enlarge its mill at  Camborne so iis to handle the ore  economically.  The Oyster-Criterion mine is regarded iis a proved producer with a  grade of ore -which can bo handled-  profitably under improved conditions  and the new manager, Mr. Cochrane,  is devoting his whole attention to  placing the company's n It airs in such  a condition that it will be able to  resume operations actively and under  the test conditions.  The Eva has Hgain started up its  mill and this mine is in better shape  than it has ever been to produce substantial results.  It is stated arrangements arc being  made for actively operating thc Goldfinch.  The Silver Dollar and the Beatrice  arc turning out well, the latter being  again a steady shipper. These two  properties give every promise of n  good account during the coming year.  The Mammoth is a new shipper  which is highly spoken of and the  Big Showing has one of the largest  ore-bodies in British Columbia. The  value of this property is evident from  the big-price the owners are setting  on it.  There   nre   a hundred prospects on  THE ESTIMATES.

A. llaggen, who is  a member of the Institute, has been  asked by Lhc committee to undertake  the arrangements for tho visitors sec:  ing the objects of interest from a mining point of view in this district. A  steamer excursion lo the Big Bend, a  banquet at Rcvclsloke, and a trip to  take in Fish Creek section, Trout  Lake, the Ferguson Minos Company's  mines, train ways and mines at Ferguson, and the Poplar camp would  probably form the host means of entertaining the visitors and at the same  time draw their attention to the  mineral resources of the district. An  exhibit of metalliferous and mice ores  might also be arranged.

Like everything else the McBride
.government has undertaken the
tax commission which it has appointed is a farce.     Judging  from
being taken the commission is
1 purely an ex parte affair designed
to defend the iniquitous taxation
methods of the government, with
their further proposed imposts, and
no attempt is being made to get at
the true bearing of taxation generally. For instance the provincial
, mining association should have
been given the fullest opportunity
for the expression of expert opinion
on the most important industry of
the province with a view to honestly remedying the present defects of
mineral taxation, but no that
would not 5nit tlie government,
who sets up two of its members
to pass judgment on its own acts.
Mr. Buntzen is only a dummy be

endeavor to use him for their purposes,n ndMr. Kerr, while a shrewd
man has little chance lo do good

Mr. Henry will be glad to ,t,'ike all
the'clean Douglas fir and cedar seeds
he can get. paying Jf-l.aO pei pound
for the former and $2 a pound foi the
cedar seed. These seeds cnu easily be
secured by gathering the cones from
thc trees, or aftei they have fallen.,
and spieading them out,on a titrht
Moor'or on sheets of paper in a dry
room. In a few days the cones will
open and the seeds will drop out by
Stirling them over occasionally. The
seed can then bo cleaned with very
little trouble by the use of a sieve, or
by pouring from one receptacle into
another in a slight breeze to sep.uate
the light seed and diit. Tliere is good
money in it foi those who will take
the trouble. To anyone Ii'viul- in the

The agitation of this matter
'through the press, etc., must bear
fruit; but it is. not only to the railway company that the people

Four, shafts   have  'boon.sunk in ,that  distance 650  feet  apart. -Three of   the shafts  are  now  , down''25 feet and No. 3 is sunk 30 feet:  'It is intended to  continue  this "shaft  for at least 100 feet, nnd M"os. 1, 2 and  ���������I to the depth of 50 feet. .' This  class  of work has been done with'the object  of making n good ,sho.v   for  the  market, as R.  P.' Eraser,   Pictoti,'  N..S.,  will boon the ground with a party of  capitalists in the early spring.  '   All the shafts have been sunk along  side the lead, and a  vast   nmcuiit   of  ore has been encountered.    From -N"o.  -i some very rich samples were shown  us, it  being   the   method   to   obtain  samples for  assay  at   every  10   feet.  There is now estimated to be $1,500,-  000 worth of ore blocked out.  If the sale is not effected in 'the  spring it is the hi tent ion of the present company to at once erect a concentrator to treat the lovv.-grade ores.  About a ton a day is being taken from  Xo. 4 shaft,' and there tiro also two  stringers of clean ore, 1-1'inches and  10 inches respectively. -The remainder of the lead is right in concentrates,  with an average of 15 per cent, clean  ore.  will  have acquired, interests   in   the  Lardeau',.   , , , '.

"What's that for?" asked the commodore.     '*'       '     , -  "Wo shall have wind in "a moment."  The commodore went to the lee'rail  and scanned the sea and sky. "I see  no signs of wind," lie returned. "Let  the''nien leave the braces." -    -  Tho crew dropped the ropes.  "Keep, hold of the braces, every man,  of you!" called out Plnkliani, and the  men resumed their grasp.'   The commodore- flushed  with  auger  iind   exclaimed in peremptory tones:   it- '  "Let the men leave the braces!" and  again the,braces were dropped.  1 "Don't any of you dare to drop th������'  ropes!" shouted ,1'liiklittin, shaking his  trumpet at'the crew, who , once more  took hold. 'Just then tiie wind dropped  entirely; not n breath,stirred.'    ,  "Taut, taut! II(iiil,*'iill of you!" called  Plnkham, and the ponderous yards  fawung to, reversed position. Tho wind  came out.of the opposite quarter und  struck the ship like n sledge hammer.  The vessel staggered, shook the spray  from her bows'and dashed a head., The  commodore disappeared into his cabin  without saying a word. ��������� ' L.  , , Presently he sent the first lieutenant  to relieve Piiikh.-nn, requesting'to see  the. latter immediately. ��������� When Pink--  hani entered the, cabin'the commodore  said: " |C( '       ,  '"I consider tliiit I n'm indebted lo you  rfor-nll of our lives; but I.will tell you  frankly'If Hint wind hadn't come I  should have put you in irons in two  minutes."' -       ' ''   ''       "'   '  - LUMBERING.

Holtcn said : "My own views in  regard to Poplar camp and thc Great  Northern company have never changed. But on this last trip 1 have  noticed thc effect of the settlement of  the litigation over the title to the  Lucky Jack. The change is remarkable. The lawsuit vvas thc only reason  for the depression. It certainly was a  serious blow. It retarded the development of the country by a year at least.  Now conlidence is restored. Men from  outside arc coming in, claims 'are  being bonded, optimism is general,  and it will be hard to prevent a boom  in the'spring of this year.  "To my own knowledge, gathered  during a very hurrie-d visit, there are  now four properties at work that were  idle all tlio preceding year. Inquiries  arc coming in daily from all over Canada and tho United States. This is a  new feature in the history of the  camp. Miners arc still a little timid  about locations "S a result of the litigation. Crown granted properties,  however, aro at a premium.

As some fear is expressed that the  delay iii prosecuting work on the  river improvement at Revelstoke is  likely to endanger the preparations  that have been made, should tbeie be  an early spring, we understand levels  had to be taken before the dominion  engineers can complete their plans of  work.
