Year After Year the River Eats the  , Bank and No Attention is Paid to  Protests���������;Refuse to Co-operate���������  Afraid of Responsibility.  The continued erosion of "tin- river  l-ank adjacent to tin* present main  road between (hi* two end-, of town,  opposite tin* schoolhouse, has resulted,  ns anticipated by tin- Mail last week.  iTTftiiThcr destruction of  pioperty nnd  making the road unsafe fur traffic    So  great lnis been   (he subsidence  that a  new road i.s an absolute  necessity iind  (he  Government., Agent   took   prompt  measures to open,one thi-. week..   Over  12 feet of the bank has slipped into the  river in  the  past few  days, leaving a  sharp,   well-defined   gap   with a  good  sheer fall  to  the  water* edge, almost,  immediately alongside of the j ond way.  The ground here, is quicksand and veiy  f unstable,  thus    rendering "it an  ea-*y  ''subject   (o   the   rapacious,   Columbia  which has been devouring it for years.  All   t.liis' time   valuable   realty   was  being liisrt  and   the,, citizens  protested  loudly.'     They   called,   for   protection  lime and again   but no   attention  has  been paid by the piovince 'to   their ajj-  ' peals and to-day sees their main thoroughfare   unsafe   for .travel    and    the  school block   (aud noon the building) in  1  imminent, danger from the river.   This  ''' road and pioperty is worth  something,  to the Province, which   has  spentcon-  sideiahle  money   on   its construction  and maintenance,..but the government  cannot see  it---   way   clear to augment  .the  grant of   ' $10,000   given , by   the  Dominion with a like amount, even to  save its own   property.    It cannot  cooperate  here  to  sac;   Revelstoke property but. can do so'on the Fi-aser; and  seeininitly has no care   for  our future,  bul laugh....when our  i ������-pi esentnli vc in'  the     legislature    .suggests'    seriously  enough that,Revelstoke may soon be a  large   city.    They  turn   with   a laugh  fiom   Revelstoke.   do IJn-sc, minister-,  t(| I'liiTowiug million* fo'r__railway pro-.  1 ���������iiuTteTS'imd 'hun'dreds'oT .tliiiusaiids-foir  parliament buildiiig.-.'  If you do arouse,  their interest they say " we have given  you a court house, etc."   A court hou-e  is needed  but.  will  not.  keep  back! he  Golumliia. There is no Canute amongst  'these   ministers,   and   lo   protect,   this  town's, general usefulness and   appearance nothing will avail but co-operation  with the Dominion in the ma I tec  Mr. Bostock, xune time ago, declared  (hat he had found all ai rangetnenls  made by the two governments I'm concerted action here, and acting upon  this he secured the $10,000 apprnprin-  (ion from the Federal government.' To  ��������� his- surprise, Premier Turner icpudiated  the compact and as much as refused lo  assist. If this is for political spite, are  people hern, to suffer for it? What  does it. niatter (o ie-*ideut's of llevelstoke whether Premier Turner,, has a  grudge for.Mr. Boslock or'the Laurier  government. They see their propeity  being destroyed daily owing to the  neglect, oi worse, of the provincial  government, and will surely remember  this fact in 'OS.  ' The latest, landslip necessitates the  ending of a new road, Work on which  commenced Tuesday and will be continued as far as ijiSOO or $000 will carry-  it. The new road will continue up  Douglas slieet, then turn at light  angles, towards the brewery, to Second  street and along that street to (he  one paralleling the smeller spur. This  will be a great assistance iu opening a  newer and. foi a time, safer route bill,  with the present policy of neglect, will  have to be replaced by another one on  First street, in a few years. II. too may  possibly be allowed to subside into the  river and then it will become necessary  to maintain a ferry or bridge connection between both ends of the town.  The mutter is most mm ions and must  be taken up immediately. If' the  provincial government, is determined  lo shirk its responsibility and abandon  us to our fate, t he only course open is  to' nieino'-iali/.e the fideral aul hnrities  for assistance, and il' this must be done  there is no time lo loose, as the Commons session will 'conclude in a few  weeksand the supplementary estimates  will soon be submitted to'the Mouse.  The following is an extract from a  letter id' Premier Turner to the Hoard  of Trade received since; the above was  iu type: '  " Referring to (he prutcrtioii of the  river bank, I his is ,������������������ very serious  matter for I be government to  undertake especially as i(, is a matter  belonging, in our opinion, tu the Dominion government which has exclusive jurisdiction over navigable  waters and is cimseipienl Iy respuiisilde  for ( he lepnirs necessary as I he result  ol erosion; but even if the Piovince  had the right. I,lie l)omiuiou vole of  $10,0011, which was iiiiule conditionally  upon the government of this Province  .appropriating ii similar amount, is iu  view of tlie   iiiagiiiliide   of I he., under-'  fa king absolutely useless. This goverp-  menf will do what it can in the matter,  and nas urged stronglv upon the Dominion government the import-nice  of protecting the liver bank at Revelstoke, but you will understand that in  agreeing to' assume any share, of the  expenditure necessary to protect the  bank against the damage caused by  navigable waters it assumes a responsibility which extends throughout the  whole province. Under such circumstances I feel assured that you will see  ,the justice of looking to the Dominion  government for a remedy rather- than  to the province although, as has been  previously intimated, this^ government  is willing to co-operate as far'as possible without prejudicing its position in  respect to matters in which the Dominion has exclusive control. and responsibility."  This does not niter th������ inattei a bit���������  Iessen-the provincial government's responsibility one iota, or increase (lie  people's respect, for the sense of faii-  iies-s and justice with which the letter  tries to imbue'the government. It is a  characteristically weak letter saying  we will do what we can but we won't  do anything and you had betteriuok  to the 'Dominion to help you. They  are bound to spend .thousands on llu*  Fraser by their own act,,but cannot  assist here lest they should assume,  large responsibility. The'people here,  have a sense of humor, too, and they  no doubt laugh at'the scrupulousness'  of this economical finance , minister,  about the river bank when they think  .of his liivishnesses to Rithet and Hcin-  ���������ze, with < Cassiar, and foi parliament  buildings.  'WOULDN'T D0"A-THING.  The Steamer Got no Further than the  Old Landing.  ,   ' r  ' A good, deal   has   been 'heard   about  the C.P.R. putting on a steamer above  Revelstoke'and   much   was   expected  from, tli.'in.    Capt.  Troup   went   up a  .week ago to   look  at   the  canyon  and,  thought   he   could   get   through. ' He  knew the boat, he could   get,   he  knew  the river and its slages  of "water,   but  now it is understood,   having  biouL'ht  the much,talked of   boat  lhe   lllecille-  waet here, he inclines  to   the opinion  that    he    can't-  go"    through.     Some,  pee'ile, it is said,   who   well   know   the'  n\er have   volunteered   to   lake.the  l.o.U uj\ Voiiie have even offered .to .put,'  -up security against loss.���������.,Others,   too.r  'have offered voluntary .as-i'stance and  the boys say they would pull   the   boat  up by hand if it was neeess-iry. Nothing  will   move  the  daring  commodore 'of  theC. it K. Co. fleet, however, and the  wretched little scow steamer will pioh-  ably go   back  south   having made  no  further n't tempt than to reach the land-'  ing below tlie smelter.    Lest it be ever  said thai- the steamer could not' go "up  let   il   he   remembered   that it  never  triad.  lA   good   deal   is   heard   about    the  modern steamboat man and   his  boats  but it is a rather damaging  testimony  against  lhem   to   think   that 80 years  ago what.  Capt- Troup   will   not  now  attempt was repeatedly  done at (this  on the word of one who was there) even  higher- stages of water- than at, present  prevailing.  The people of Revelstoke will have  yet to co-operate ' in pulling on a  steamer iri the upper river 'themselves  if they' hope to open Rig Rend to  capital as it looks as if others, like the  C. P. R., who' talked so much do not  appreciate the merits of the case.  SOUTHERN KOOTENAY.  Happenings of  Interest Amongst its  Various Camps.  TRAIL CHEEK.  The largest Rand drill in (he camp is  now working 'on -"the Iron Colt. It.  diills IS inches in live minutes .-ind  makes 10 holes of 5 to ok feet deep or  50 feet of di illing ' in GV hours.

Marchand will be premier in  .the new Quebec administration.  Owing lo the success of the Liberals  in Nova Scotia and Quebec, Premier  liaulv is thinking of bringing on (he  Ontario olcrtioiis at an ear ly dale.

The McCulloch Creek Tunnel Co. had  a meeting Monday and decided to proceed with work. John Sanderson will  conduct operations, as before.  Robt. Green left yesterday with six  men (o improve the Big Bend trail  between heie nnd the canyon. Thi*  start on the trail is made for fear the  steamer lllecillewaet will Ik* unable tu  make more than one trip through the.  canyon. In such a contingency she  would have to remain above it for the  summer and the 'large amount of  freight belonging to'the French Creek  Co. (for whom she is primarily making  the trip) will have to be, packed abov.e  the canyon and there loaded on the  steamer, which would have all she  could do for' the season. Other crews;  will go .-ut. on the trail shortly.  1. T. Biewster, secreiai-y and manager of the Carnes Creek Consolidated  Mining Co., returned yesterday from  a three week's trip to the company's  property on Carnes creek. Tie says '  they have now all the working outfit  up to the claims also all necessary  supplies. Everything was _ found iu  good shape foi working, and when  camp was formed work was started ou  the tunnel directly on .the vein. Two  shifts are working steadily now and  the tunnel is in 30 feet. T. XV. Bain U  the foreman. The company will prosecute the woi k with energy this summer  ami fall and expect lo have a splendid  .showing as a result. The work is being  done on the Kosehery claim.  The new Big Bend mail coutracl -  which was to begin in May has long  since passed its Idling date but, no  word has been received as to who ir,  the successful tenderer, and il is not  even known if the contract is let. The  lir-st delivery under the new contract  was for May f>, the second on the 201 h,  but a few days off. hut. no seivice im*  been started. P.O. Inspector Fletcher  should net his house in order and let  this contract without delay as the Big  Bend requites it.
