The answers as may be seen are most  unaiiiinoti-and point strongly lo tlie  necessity foi further and immediate  action. In (lie order in which they  were obtained the following replies  were given :���������  J.'D. Ghaiiam���������The idea of a recreation ground is good and I think now  is the Lime to get aL it before the land  is .'ill gobbled up.  , FitAXK Vanijam Yes! by all means  let ns have <-i decent ground.    I will do  all I can to assist the movement.   '  J. A UiKHT Stone���������I fa voi-' the idea  and would suggest a public meeting to  discuss it pro aud eon. ';   -       '  .   W. Cowan���������A good  thing;  push  it  along.    I will help you all I can.  II. N.A Couitsiliil��������� I think it very  necessary Lo have a recreation ground,  and will assist in any practical scheme  Lo get it as soon as possible! ,  Chas. Aijkahamson-- I think we  ought, to look into the matter wilhotiL  delay. A growing town like'1 ours  needs some such attraction and we  haven't anything lo show to visitors.  J. M. Kei.uk���������I'thiuk a public, meeting should be called aL once - and a  chance given "everyone 'to -.express  themselves. At present there is no fit  place fi'u-  recreation  and   one   is  on'West Kootenay mines.' Ts the in-1  flustiy tlitit can make an output'like  this, that could stand a tax like this,  to be hailed by the imposition of such  a tax ? No. It. will neither pay it. nor'  lie. idle but will apply this amount lo  tiie creation of a smelting and refining  industry,,' The mining industry of  Utitisli .Columbia is of no ephemeral  ijtialily but it permanent and growing  power. Perhaps the'-senale Look some  cognizance,of thi.s when framing the  new dut}'.   .   ..   ; * ^  '  very  inuchaieeded.      -  Ry������BT. Gordon���������I think a recreation  ground sis' necessary a public institution  as a school, ��������� medical heallh officer,  sanitary regulations or anything else  for the public benefit. I will assist in  furthering the scheme.  Harry J. Bourne���������I think the idea  worthy of consideration'and 'one that  should be. gone into, iti a pr.-ict.ic.il  manner before the ground is,all   taken  i k 0-  i'P- ,  F. McCarty���������The idea is all'right  and this in my opinion is Lhe time Mo  go into it. I favor taking it up, however;-its a business matter on a business  basis.  W. 4M. Lawrence���������I appiove of the  idca-and if ptiL on -a business footing  will help it lrom it business point of  view.  T. L. Uaig���������J think Lhe idea good,  and its the ground near the town is  gelling more and more valuable the  difficulty of securing it is considerably  increased by delay. 1 will do anything  in my power to help the idea along.  Though 'there weie many other  prominent-'citizens whose opinions  v\ei\- much .desired (and which would  have been obtained but foi pressuieof  lime) the above are of sufficient weight  and unanimity to guarantee a general  hiLcrest being taken.in the scheme. It  should not be a cosily matter, and with  a small outlay a most desirable result  may be obtained. The ' details of the  scheme are, al| lhat is to-.bi: consideieil  now, and a meeting to discuss them  should beari.tnged 'for w ilhoul delay.  .Strike the iron while it is hot,   always.  ��������� Of Historical Interest.   Q  ,   O '  A sight prosaic enough in appearance  was lhe pulling out (if a- freight  train  ofrom Revelstoke on .Monday morning.  To the uninitiated iL was nothing new,  buL Lo those m.-ide,aware of its contents  it meant a great deal.    It  was a   train  of eight cars  of copper consigned  to  Liverpool,   England,   Horn   (he    Hall  Mines,   Nelson,  and  it -was   the.   first  copper ever shipped from   British   Columbia.    The standard of. the  metal  is  OS and 09 per cent.,  and   the  val.ue  of  the   shipment   about    $50,000.      It   is  expected to create considerable interest  iu  the   old   country.    The, company's  smelter is now turning out  the* metal  ;it the rate of ten to twelve tons a day  'and another train load will be ready in  a little while.'  This lii-e't, train load of .copper is an  event of historical value to this district  'and cannot, be .allowed Lo. pass'' unnoticed. Hit by bit, and link by link,  KooLenayis fulfilling her destiny and  coming to- the -fiont as the mining  region of this, century. Hut a small  beginning has as yet been made, but,  it. seems so permanent, so bright and  hopeful that, Lo those who have  Wiiti-hed the tide of progiess, there is  nothirigcwild or enthusiastic in discerning for KooLenay a most roseate an  wonderful Cut nre.

Donald Wins the Gun Club Trophy.  The-annual trap shoot for the Revelstoke Gun Club Challenge Cup came  oil" on .Thursday, July', ]-t. . The  weather was of a \-i-iy< unpleasant  description and not at all- favorable to  good shooting. Up'to midnight on  Wednesday, Kamloops club .was' expel ted but oiiri of the le.-ie; was unable  to join at the last .moment and . the  shoot, was left, between lievelstoke and  .Donald only. The cup was won d'rom  Donald last year and this year (he boys"  from Lhat white man's (own (00k it  back with them. The. idea must not be  taken fi om'the, stoi e which is appended that the shooting wasjuul for from'  the weather point of view it was not.  It-was it cold, wet, foggy day and the  best shots could hardly ha.ve scored  much better. It, was nevertheless  something of ii surprise to' see that  excellent shot Willis Ai-inslrong do as  poorly .is he did. Woodrovv and Drown  too weie not. up to tlieii usual mark.  Following are the aggregate scores :   -  The murderer Woods,   who  escaped  with the latl McDonald from (he  Nelson jail, was capl tired on Sunday about  2 p.m.   The capl tire was very exciting.  It w.-ts thought the,escaped   men   were  getting out of the country it ml the $500  reward put a large'crowd watching Lhe  Columbia    River and   N. A: Ft. S. Rly.  A party was put to watch   the  line  at.  Waneta   and   Special   Constable   Mc-1  Kinnon-(now  foreman   at   the .Silver  King, hut. recently of Nanaiino's  police  force) iind a parly of two went up  tin-  line as a section gang with a hand cat..  They   inanouvered   .about and   finally  got Woods and .McDonald to come out  of the bush , and   lake a'ride   on   Lhe  hand car Lo Sayward.    They helped to  pump' the  car' with   their  left hands  keeping   their  right.-^ on ' their ��������� guns.  All went well   till  thej- got  near   the  igang watching the track, when  Woods  spied theniand was off the  car like'a  shot ;   McKinnon   was   equally   alert,  however,   iind   took   him   round    the  tino.-iL with both' hands  while,   yv/oods  caught, hit'n, with the left.    They rolled  over together and   Woods  freeing  his  pistol put it lo   McKinnon's abdomen.  It missed lire in some way  and   before  he could adjust it the   watching  party  had   him   in   irons.     McDonald    was  easily secured by the two men   on   tin-  car and the-   whole party went on  to  Waneta ,then to Nelson for, trial.  '    On Wednesday,   James   Woods, was  convicted of murder in the lirstdegree.  The jury was  out about'ten   minutes  and   brought in   a   verdict of,, guilty.

A Spoon Fed Town. <  Mr. Justice Walkeni iu his address  to the grand jury aL Nelson assizes  said, "You have been spoon fed iu Lhe  past and youi' taxes 'taken from you  'and spent in Cariboo, and the Northwest." .There is no doubt about Nelson  having been spoon fed and' if, hits always been considei ed a pi.tee favored  by Turner oflicinldom.
