This is taken as sufHciont  reason why the, company should advance wages, but the men who assume  to  believe our company should be so  liberal   in   disbursing    its* ������uuds   lose  sight oi tlie fact that Le Itoi stockholders expended $50,000 in making a mine  ot this property, and that Lhe prospect  ci dividends is a future possibility, not  an  assured, fact.

T.v*  other kinds are coming in shedding,  rubbed aud faded, and as the season  advances they i\ill become still poorer;  but we buy"iuis the year round, and  any shipper to us can depend uponget-  <;ng full value, no matter whether they  grade good or poor; but we advise  trappers not to continue trapping too  late in the season, even lor the water  animals.

"Why did ,not  the Tribune tiot out this s.uue'ehaige  at   the" tune' when  jiublic money was  being pouied out"like watei  in Nelson  and   vicinity?    Was  the Government  " "bubing Kelson when public nymey was  used m qrading streets, making sewers,  building whai-.es, youitliou.se, hospital,  schoolhouse,  jail,  the Toad  AlouirUnn  wagon road, etc., etc'    The ]3ig Bend  road is needed, and badly needed. Now  that our silver mines aie unprofitable  ,,   we must rn ike the most of  our gold  distiicts.     Big Bend  has several gold  nrines  which are paying hcndsomely,  even under such advei&e circumstances  ���������   as are  entailed by its inaccessibility.  The Tribune  itself prints the following :���������"The   four   men   working   in  ��������� the   Consolation   aie taking out good  pay, the April dividend 'being 81,400.  On Saturday last M r. Lafonne brought  p   down  .-s2,'i00   worth  of  gold dust to  Revelstoke,   and  on   the   trip   before  " $1,100."    There aie gold mines in Big  ���������Bend richer than the Consolation, and  s ,w1uq1i aie not being worked properly  because they cannot get the necessary  "apparatus packed in over such a, terri-  'ble trail.    Capitalists have gone up to  the Bend,'have examined gold properties  and , expressed   the' fullest coriti-  "deuce in   tlie country/but have been  'frightened away by tho enormous expense of getting in even  the lightest  machinery.    Tin's season  others have  come from all parts of  the Dominion  .,,   and   the  States,  and'many more nre  (, "coming, but until a road is built or the  trail put on easier gradients none of  these men will care to invest money in  tiie country.   It matters^little whether  it be ii tirst-class trail  or a  third-class  road as long as supplies  can  be  taken  up at workable rates.    And we know  for certain that the 9 cents per lb the  packer is charging do not allow'lum to  add very much to his banking account.  "We have only ."^8,000 appropriated for  Revelstoke  and   Big  Bend.     Double  " that sum  would  not begin to do tho  work absolutely'necessary at  this end  of the district.   But the tiail can be so  improved-with this $8,000 as to make  the journey feasible in  three  dajs instead of six.    The Tribune's statement  'that  $00,000   would   be   required'   in  makjrig the toad'"is so uttei ly absur d  - lhat it needs no comment.   The money  doled out to the Revelstoke Division  lias been a  mere  pittarrce  compared  with   what  has   been   received   every  year until the "present by the kickers  of Kelson.    Is   the (at present) most  promising industry of the province to  be blocked and perhaps destroyed because that lynx-eyed critic of  Government malfeasance runts  and   tcais its  hair   at the  horrid  faet of the appro-  pi iation (for once) being evenly di*. ided  between  the  two   divisions  of "West  Kootenay, for that's what the Tribunes  screed amounts to *    Had the ������8,000  "bcer-f* appropriated  for   a wagon road  'from  Kelson to  the top of the moun-  ,   tain behind Bogustown swamp it would  be  piping a different  tune, as  can be  pioved by not iciy ancient hi&ioiy.  Tn  conclusion, ne can assure the Tribune  that theie is no necessity foi it to take  its shiit oil' in that manner, as the ap-  piopnation is so 'small that instead of  having a   very  poor wagon  road  the  citizens of the Korth Riding ha-, e de-,  cided on having  a JlrM-ela^ trail, and  .this decision was arrived at long before  our  erudite'   contemporary   (lew  into  -   such a rage over- a matter which does  'not concern it.

It  seemed that Ihc-ie was a promise by  cei tain persons in Kevelstoke to see  the men paid, lie looked upon the  question in the light that everyone who  had done work on uv ils oi the same  kind would be just as much entitled to  ask for reeonmense. ~^-  He had asked lion.

Kohson at first  told him that he (Mr. Kellie) was cra-<y  lo think of Such a thing, hut he continued to use his influence and the next  vc-ai he got $:-i8,000.  He made an arduous tr ip fiom Arrow  Lake to Tiout Lake to see whether  money for a trail would he well applied  or siniandoivd. -Mi*. Hawkins was .ip-  pointed foreman to build the trad. JVir.

Mr. Has-  kins Hew olV the handle, and, to spite  him, put the dad over the mountain.  When Mr*. Haskins sent up for ..supplies  the Government Agent here rei used to  grant them, aud nil*. Haskins wheel to  Mr. Kellie at Victoria. (Mr. Kellie  then read 1 ho telegram and his reply,  which ordered the Government agent  to send supplies.) What he wanted ty  point out was how he aeted,towarcls  the Government' Agent. Mr.( Kirkup  would not send a pound of supplies until he (the speaker) had sent his telegram, and when the men were being  paid Mr. Krrkujj would not pay them  for the time he had kept them waiting  at Trout Lake for supplies. He (Mr.  Kellie) wrote to the Government and  the men were paid every cent coming  to them, about y 127.00 more than would  have heen necessary having to he<yaid  bv the district ov, ing to the unnecessary  delav.  The Gold Commissioner at Nelson  'had refused Lo grant money lor loads  and trails around Kaslo. lie had found  Government Agents had always opposed him in getting roado. It was impossible to avoid trouble about such  questions. He would like to get out of  the trouble about roads and trails and  he onee tried to get a local council appointed in each part tor- such work, but  it avas thrown out, and he thought  afterwards that it might not have  worked.  ��������� Ue then requested any who wished  to ask' questions ov to speak to do so  now, as he himself would ha\ e opportunities of speaking again, And there  were so many questions to take -up that  it would take all night to go over them.  Mir. XV. M. Brow.n-said there was a  meeting held here a short tune ago to  urge noon tlie Government' the necessity of starting work, on the wagon  roads at once. It was said then that  the Government would comply with  their wishes. But nothing had yet  been done in the matter, and he would  like to know what was going to be  done.   (Applause.)  Mn. KiDraau sard th.it a committee of  citizens had gone out Io look over tne  trail. He supposed Mr. J-io*.*- (the superintendent) was doing all he could to  get the work done, lie had asked Mr.  Kos.s to give every man a fan-show,  and the merchants "each their- share of  the supplies. It took time to lay out  tho work, and as the route was cliihcuit  it would be injudicious to push the matter too much. When the delegates  went to Victoria he told them he  thought he could get about }j> 10,000 for  the'noi-th end out o'i the .-tS'Ja.OOO tor the  district, lie had asked ior a public  meeting to ascertain fiom the people  if a tote road to the Big Ucnd would  not do, and keep the balance of tho $8,-  000 for opening up trails farther up.  The road should be built as cheaply as  possible.  Mr-. "W. M. Bkowx : I was led to believe that the explanation given at the  private meeting of citizens last week  about the handling of the government  money-was notatall satisfactory, ancl  .that was what I wanted to be explained. (The Government Agent apparently knew nothing and Mr. Rps& had nol  received instructions to go on with the  work'.  Mr. Kellic said that the Government Agent was- to consult him on the  matter of laying out the money to the  best advantage.' Th.tfc gen*"leinan j-oem-  ed very obliging, and he (Mr. K.) did  not m ish to interfere. The matter was  now in the hands of Mr. Ross to act .as  he thought best.        ,  Mb. Ii.

Mr. Coursier, J. P., was at  Hall's Landing last Friday on business,  and he arrived here on the str. Columbia Sunday afternoon with Sam Hill  and the Indian's liile. Air. Coursier  had telegraphed the news oi the shooting on Saturday, and Coroner Manuel  arrived here fiom Donald about midnight Saturday. Mr. Manuel and Oili-  c;er Giaham oi Revelstoke went down  Monday morning, and at Hall's Landing, picked up six men to act as a juiy,  and then went cm to Galena Bay,  wheiG) the inquest was held. Tom  Beach, the man who ,took Sam Hill's  message to Lardeau to telegraph to  Kevelstoke, was missing for a day or  two. and it was thought the Indians  had killed liim for revenge, but be has  since turned up, and it appears he had  been seaiclrrr'ig for* Sam Hill, expecting  to iind his dead* body, as he irad found  the Indian lying wheio he lei 1, and  thought the other Indians <nmst certainly have killed Sain. The i'olion ing  composed the jury: Messrs. A. Craig,  W. Glenn, A. Cun'miings, John Hols-  trom, W. S. Philips and D. If all. The  inquest was held on the beach at Galena Hay, whore the evidence was taken.  The party returned to Hall's Landing  and the juiy went into private con-  cl.fie. It was about midnight before  thoy "handed in their- verdict,' which  was to the^eifect that Hill had shot the  Indian in sell-defence. In other Avoids  "justifiable homicide." iSTo other- conclusion could possibly have been iiri'iv-  ed at. Sam Hill is an old Big Bend  miner,'1 and worked, there seveial seasons in partnership with Andy Hunker  arrd others. Hill if oire of. the quietest  men to be met with in a day's journey,  and not the least blame attaches itself  to him'l'or killing the Indian in prefer-,  ence to losing lus own life. "Cultus  Jim" bore a hard name here, and it is  said was not particularly well liked by  his own tribe. It was found on examination that two bullets had gone clean  thiough the body, one entering the leit  side pietced the heart.

Procunier, brother-in-law of the  bride, assisted by the Revs. .T. F. Betts  and \\;,. L. TTall.'Rev. E. Ernest Hard-  wick, of Salmon Arm, B."C, to Margaret A. Maxfield, daughter of 0: C. Max-  field, Esq., of Edmonton, AlberL-i. Maritime papers please copy.  The ceremony took place, at half-past  three in the afternoon and the church  was well filled, mostly by ladies. The  morning had been wet aiid gloomy, but  early in the. afternoon the sun shone  out brightly, so that the omen was a  crood one according to the old saying  that " Happy is the bride that the sun  shines on, "The bridesmaids were the  Misses Edith and Maggie Lewis, the  groomsmen being Willie Palmer of  Salmon Arm and Walter Betts of Kamloops. The bride wore a dress of cream-  colored nun's veiling, but no ornament  othei- than the bridal veil. -The bridesmaids looked very pretty in dresses of  white cashmere. " After the ceremony,  Mrs. T. L. Haig played the wedding  inarch and the. br idal party returned to  the parsonage, wheie a number of invited guests partook of refreshments,  'and the 5Toung couple held a reception  before leaving on the 5 o'clock tram for  Salmon Arm,'where Mr. Hardwick is  stationed. The presents were valuable  and useful.  THREE BEARS SHOT.  A very large black bear was killed  last Saturday afternoon at the crooked  bridge, about two miles west of town.  It was seen from the C.P.R. track by  .T. Little, engineer of the yard engine  here, who, in company with W. J. Lee,  yardmaster.-and Fred Eraser, bridge-  man borrowed a rifle and "stalked" his  heirship without being observed by  poor Bruin, who received a bullet each  trom the engineer and bridgeman, one  through tho head and the other through  the heart, while a third shot branded  it with their initials. It was placed in  front of the engine above the cowcatcher and brought here in triumph. The  animal weighed between 500 and (500  lbs. and the skin is worth $25. Another  bear was seen in compauy with this  sbig fellow, but it got away beiore the  shooters returned with1 tho rifle. Fred  Moore went out to look for it Tuesday,  in company with two or tbiee othei*.,  who returned after an hour1 or two's  tramp, leaving Moore to "bear" it alone.  lie came back towards evening with  the skin of a brown bear- about a year-  old. Moore again went out after b'ar  yesterday, and got it, too. He brought  home the hide of a large black boar,  which he shot near Ore same place. It  is presumed that the companion of the  black fellow shot last Saturday is still  at large.  NAKUsFlTEMS.  ' Mr. Chas.

THINGS SAID AND DONE ABOUT  TOWN.  0 [bv diogenks.']  Private vehicles running between the  station ancl lower town .seem to be well  patronised of late. No doubt the ten  cent faro put on by the hotel men has  been the means of giving increased (if  not profitable) business to the wagons  .that.-do not make any charge. Some  people have such a dislike for walking  that they will wait around patiently,  sometime** an horn or more, for something on wheels to come along and give  them a free lift. It doesn't much matter  i whether it's a grocer's delivery wagon,  a butcher's cart or the-humble lumber  wagon, so long as they don't have to  pay ten cents.    Probably the 'bus com-  , pany would carry a lot more passengers and-do j-j far more profitable busi-  'ness if they reduced the fare to'five  cents.  y <   -- ,\  There/was a little political meeting  last Friday night���������irr fact,-there,were,  J two of them, but hy opposing1 caucuses  ���������to which I'and other public-hearted  citizens received no invitation. Irr the  s- ' first instance Mr. How-son's supporters  to  the 1(number of a whole dozen met  0 together in secret conclave at C. B.  Hume's office to discuss tho advisability  of the first-named gentleman-fa candidature for the coming election. On  account   of   the   coldness   which   has  - arisen,between the candidate,and,his  , chief hencliman the proceedings did not  bubble oyer with brotherly love; Jonathan did not fall on the neck of David  any'more, either for shelter or encouragement. The big promises had not  materialized; the wires were rusted or  broken and would not work; tho whole  scheme had proved to bo N. G., and  there was nothing for it but retirement.  There i.s now one candidate less in the  North Riding. " - -  '   ���������     - ���������\   '    *  When the Emperor Napoleon III. declared war against' Prussia in 1870 he  had been led to believe by, his' generals  and chief advisers that France had only  to marshal her army in battle array  and march towards Berlin to have the  pleasure of seeing the Prussians grovel  at his feet. , He was assured of victory  by those who professed to know.   This  ' was so thoroughly believed by, the oin-  '   peror that ho acted upon their advice.  , So, thenar my was trotted out, and with  tho cry of "A Berlin.'"' set oil" to cap-  ��������� ture the Prussian capital. They reached  Sedan, and then !    Can y'ou, draw  ������������������ an   inference?   Tlie\moral is���������Always  ' ascertain, the real facts for- yourself  before venturing on a campaign, polilr-  , cally oi*- otherwise. Mr. Howson, did  not reach his Sedan, but he makes his  exit all the same.  i, * *  The othei caucus meeting was held  by wire-pullers on behalf of Mr. Kellie.  What was transacted is still a"secret,  but, it seems' to most people that some  strong wire-pulling in this connection  has already taken place in some  quarters, or else why this sudden  change of front in some par-ties 1 could  mention ? Some who are now tumbling  over each other in their eagerness to  do homage to Mr. Kellie wero but a  i-short time ago to bo counted among  his opponents.   AVhy i.s this thus?   Is  ' it in obedience to orders, or is it in anticipation of favors to come ?  > *  # *  Two weeks ago 1 mentioned in this  column that the sending east (or west  for that matter) for articles which can  be obtained cheaper than here was disastrous to tho town's advancement, as  it worked against the interests of those  > who did so, as well as against the local  1 merchants.   I see the Inland Sentinel  has takeu the matter up, and speaks  this way:���������  "The sending of money out of the  city for goods in retail quantities, which  can be purchased at home, only defeats  its object.���������that of making the cost of  living-cheaper. Doing a larger volume  of husiness.thedealei s here could reduce  prices; whereas now a larger profit has  to be made from those goods which  inu.-t of necessity be purchased^ at  home, to enable tliem to live at all."  * *  A fine street is being created out of  chaos through tho centre of our town-  site. This is Douglas Street, about  which so much was said in the recent  Government investigation. It is fast  assuming the appearance of a handsome boulevard, but a row of shade  trees should be planted orr either'side.  Mr-. J. Stone, of the Stockholm House,  has a large pile of lumber- orr the spot  for building himself a residence on the,  corner of Douglas and Benson streets.  Mr. Kirkup's assertion that '��������� the opening up'of Douglas street would not  benefit a dozen people" is refuted already, to say nothing of Mr.-IIunie's  statement that "moneyspent on Douglas street was misspent.'" And this improvement was effected by the citizens  themselves, as of the .$2o0 appropriated  by the Government for this purpose  only $,jC was .spent on the street.  ������  But lire condition in which (he higher  end of tiie- sti-oet was left hy the workmen hti.tfall i.s both a disgrace and an  injustice���������a disgrace to the town and  (ill injustice fothe residents at tha tend  who coim-ibi:.ed in the belief that the  street was to.he opened to the railway  track.
