Existing conditions are seriously retarding . the  development of that section. The  government is now deriving an  enormous revenue from the timber  leases in the Bend, and should do  something towards making them  available for use.  "While the taxpayers of Revelstoke have heavy taxes to pay there  are'^others who have properties rated within the city that  have never yet paid taxes since  'their inception. ~ This should not  be. . It is not fair to those who pay  their 'taxes. We suggest that a  tax sale be held to clear up the  five or six years of back taxes that  are owing on some of these properties. "Every other'city in the province takes this means of purging  its tax roll and Revelstoke should  not be behind-hand.  '    STICK TO  YOUR TOWN.'  As a rule tbc printer is loyal to  bis town. He upholds his town  and its business,interests,and does  his utmost to push them ahead,  believing that in advancing their  interests he is indirectly advancing  his own.' .This a'ttitude on the part  of'the printer,is not appreciated by  the very people whose interests he  seeks lo advance. Wages arc higher in this business in Revelstoke  and other points iii Kootenay than  in.any other part of Canada, but  store prices are also higher, and  are unavoidably so owing nto the  high freight rates. - ' .  . But   let   the 'representative   of  some   eastern  house,   with  a  low  rate of wages, or where the business  is run on 'the sweatshop principle,  come into town and see, how some'  firms   will   flock   to   shower   or-  ders'-'on   him because he quotes a  little lower  price 'than   the home  printing oflice.    ,What  would the  local business firms think  of -it   if  the , printers    sent    lo    Timothy  Eaton's or some other  eastern department store  for their supplies  and gave   the same   reason   local  houses give ,'the printers���������because  they can   buy"at  less cost?  {Let  everybody adopt that policy, which  is nothing less   than   treachery   to  the town  and   district   in   which  people  live,   and',every . business  house would have to close its doors  and the value of property on which  large sums have been spent on improvements   would   be , destroyed,'  and local business'housesinvolved  in ruin.   Send your printing to the  other oflice if  you   prefer   it,   but  have it done  in   your* own   town.  Give employment to your 'fellow-  citizens.    Create new' customers for  your own business.*    Build'up the  the industries of your town.    How  much' money   do   the   Eaton   or  Copeland-Chatterson people spend  in Revelstoke?   This  oflice alone  sperids^about $10,000 a year .here.  There are several  leading . firms  in Revelstoke who,* when any citizen sends out for something  they  could supply, raise the  blue  ruin  cry.   And'we  don't  blame  them.  If everybody   did   that   it   would  mean blue min to the  city.     But  we ask them to apply  that 'policy  at home���������to look over their printing and other bills  and   see   how  much they have paid eastern linns  , A FOREST 'I'OLIOY.  Forests have made and unmade  nations. The country with great  timber wealth is a great country,  and one With a grand future before  it. The country that is .deforested  bus as'its future burrenneps and  decay. ' When the mountains' of  Spain were clad with great1 forests  that country stood in the world'.-  forefront. 'When I ho forests wen-  destroyed it went to liingour and  decay. There is much to be learned from llu'.-c lessons of the past.  The forests are necessary to secure  a good climate���������nhun'diince of  moisture for the soil nnd freedom  from violent, storms' and other extremes of nature. Herein British  Columbia lire huge areas of'land  (it for little else but growing timb-  ber. These lifnds arc being deforested. 'Nothing is being done to  provide for the future. Both lhe  provincial and' dominion governments should take steps to protect  the forests 'from lire, and ^waste,  ahd'not only so but encourage.the  growth of new forests where; tbe  timber'has beeivbhrned but' or cut  off. Other areas should be planted  with the most desirable kinds of  ti in ber-trees to provide the future  supply. A government cannot  have ii more certain and expansive  source of wealth than its timber  resources, and these should be husbanded to-the ul most. Yet r,one  never hears a statesman, mention  the subject, save to try to"get rid.  as quickly as possible, of, tho national timber resources while-any  exist.    ���������, '.L  for printing &c that  should   have  THE BANE OF CANADA.  We regret to notice  at  the  Supreme    Orange    Lodge   at   Owen  Sound the Grand Master  repeated  the slander that the Papal Ablegate  intrigued through the   Premier in  the interests of his church against  the nation.      Both   the   Ablegate  and Sir Wilfred Laurier  have  denied thifc. Thot-e who have watched  the acts and career of  Sir Wilfred  Laurier will take his  wurd   before  that of any   man   so   blinded    by  bigotry.    Sir Wiifted Laurier's life  historv is a guarantee of his integrity.    No Orangeman   who  recognizes that his first duty   is  to   his  country will support or defend  the  -attempts so often made to convert  the'Orange order  into  a  political  machine and an engine for tbe promotion of that religioii������  and   sectarian bigotry which would seek to  steep Canada in blood in the sacred  name of God and to suppress that  liberty of conscience which   is   the  keystone of the British constitution  the world over.  THE NAVAL ENCOUNTER.  The great naval battle just  fought between Russia -and Japan  emphasises . more than anything  else the enormous progress the  Japanese have made in the art of  ���������war on sea a������ well aB on land, and  shows that Russia is on the down  grade. 'Admiral Togo is as great a  "b'e'ro'in japan'today as Lord Nelson  been supplied within their home  town. If we were to publish a list  of these firms, and the printing  supplies they get from the east,  they would feel pretty small nexi  time they complained about their  fellow townsmen sending away for  their goods. As a rule they give  the home printer what they can't  help giving him. And he is put to  the additional expense of furnishing and altering proofs and trying  to satisfy his customer���������an expense  the eastern printer is not put to.  We are not speaking so much in  our own interest as in the interest  of the city, and if this city i.- to  grow and become an important  merchandising and industrial  centre its business houses will have  to learn first the duty,-they owe  their neighbors in busine=? in their  own town.  Every week we have  dozens   of  visits   from   people  asking   n=   to  make mention of something or .������n_\  nothing about something else.   We  try to Ireat our fellow citizens with  the utmost courtesy and though we  can't profess lo   do  one   half   the  things wo are asked to do, we treat  with the utmost respect (the  confidences imposed in   us.      Yet   ihi-  fi rsl time a   representative  of   the  Copeland-Chatterson bouse or������ome  eastern printing sweat-shop comes  along these same people will  hand  him their printing order, and then  excuse thems.olves to us  by saying  the price was a little less.      Tf the  same  order   was   placed   right   at  homo it could   be  done   for   little  higher price when  the carriage  is  taken   into   consideration.       The  beauty   of   American   citizenship,  and the rapid growth and  development of American  cities,   is   attributable  more than   anything  else  to the loyalty of business houses to  their own cities and fellow business  men.      Canadians   have much  lo  learn from  Americans   in   this   respect, and when they loarn   to apply some of these lessons at home  they will find the   results  all   the  better   for   themselves   personally  and for the communities in which  they live.      No man  can   live   to  himself alone, but owes his fellow-  citizens as great a duty as he owes  to himself,  CORRESPONDENCE.   *  t -��������� it '  SUN DAY* SHOOTING.  Editor Kooii.n u Mail.  Sin,���������Kindly allow me space to cull  attention 10'n matter which is quite a  grievance to not a few in this community. I refer to the rifle practice  indulged in by some on tbe morning  of the Lord's Day. I presume the idea  is that tin's being a free country one is  at liberty to cultivate their tastes regardless of'thc'feelings and principles  of others.' I do not know, if those  engaging in the practice stop to consider their responsibilities to tho?e  whose rights they interfeie with. There  is a saying which -has in it. consider  able force "that your liberty ends  where my right begins."' Apart from  the question of.snnctity there is that  interdependence one upon another  that necessitates the cultivation of  that kindly and sensitive spirit which  means the harmonising of our 'different interests and the working out a  happy community. If those responsible for the target piactice realized  tbe pain they gave to the many who  enjoy the quietness and meditation of  tbe'Lord's Day morning���������of the keen  sense of disturbance caused 'through  tbe crack, crack of the 'rifle���������I feel  they would desist;, from,.this disagreeable practice. As a' lover of the Lord's  Day in its highest and best sense, and  in the interest even of those who  otVcnd, lot me plead that this practice  be discontinued.��������� Yours, very "truly,  ������������������   -'        .

SAMSON,  THE STANDARD MINE.  Mr. Orris, a merchant of Rich Hill,  Missouri, who is interested in the  Standard Mine, returned from his trip  to the mine this morning and left for  east. He is more than delighted with  the condition in which he found the  mine, and expressed surprise at the  ore-bodies exposed. Since Dr. Dela-  matar's vi.-it further work has been  done at one point where the ore was  15 feet wide, and another four feet of  oic has been opened out, making the  ore body J'J feet wide there.  Since Dr. Delaniatar vibited the  mine the ore-bodies have been further  crosscut, and in twocrosscuts four feet  additional ore has been shewn up, and  the footwall is not yet in sight iu either  crosscut, so that he saw the mines  under more favorable conditions than  even Dr. Deltimatar did.  Mr. Orris took fine samples from the  last shots, that were fired in these  OYSTER-CRITERION MINE.  The.Oyster-Criterion mine and mill  at Camborne are to start work immediately. A. H.
