Tin* oontra-t would  be still worse with a combined steamboat.-md wagon road route. .'It' ibere  is lots of money give u������ hotho wagon  road and tiai!-". But fir-t 1 wnuld -,iy,  give us trails. Yes, 1 say -'trail.-,"  even after healing Mr. tionello'.- pio-  pusaK 1 am inloro-tt'd in bS claims,  and if Ic-in got through coitain deal*  'of which I have hope, there w.ill'be  some $12,000 worth of work put in < 11  thent- It ia siniplv impossible lo undertake development work like that  without traiN.  KOIS-f-RT   ULAOKMOUK.  I have heard .Mr. G'enelle's sfeamlioai,  proposition.' I still believe the .S(tKKj is  better spent, on ,trails as lhe canyon  can be safely run fm- long enough Ic  give him time to cai ry all thi-ru is  required ' from Revelstoke. - I know  what I am ��������� talking about as to the  canyon for I've run it repeatedly in ,  small boats, iind on the Lvttou last  spring. It's'perfectly safe, at an intei-  mediate or medium stage of water,  which covers a period of three ,1110111 lis  at, least. Probably the sea=on is loneer  than that but it is sale .��������� to gimr.-iiilet-  that. much. It is a mistake to s*iy the  river just above the canyon is all right,  it is had at 9-mile, unimproved ,-i������ it i^  now, and if wagon load is talked at all  it should go .-ibove 0-mile. It would  cost more for a road" from canyon to  9-inile than from Revelstoke to canyon  and if Mr. Geiu.-lle thinks it necessary  to have a road to above the canyon -In:  had better say at once above 0-mile.  This would greatly increase the cost of  transportation. Big Bend's great need  is cheap transportation of supplies a ml  cheap rates on any oie output it makes.  That, is best secured by ninning when  possible dii cot from Revelstoke to some  depot where goods can be, bought in  small lots iind also'while'the season  serves taking the ore out direct.  .JOHN  D.  BOYD.  My opinion is that the wagon toad is  useless unless built'above 'J-ntilo,fJaud  for   pin poses   of  getting   out   ore   it  would be much more economical to  bo  able to' boar  direct from   Revelsrcke.  .which can be safely   done   during the  season except for, say, a month, while  in flood, than transhipping to a wagon  and      Weighting      into     Revelstoke.  The same argument applies to  taking  in supplies.    Jf Mr. Genelb-'s boat- can,  not run the canyon at the stage be saw  it.it  is  not  fit   torun.on   the river  above.   ' The   economy   of   Big   Bend  transportation is, in  my opinion, shipping direct from   Kevcl-toke to ;i sitae  or warehouse, during the upon  season,  so that prospectors can order supplies  whenever and in whatever amaiuit required, and ship out ore when a steani-  ercan   make it. through   in  a   liip.      I  would   like, to seo a Ini;it  on   the liver,  and hope it can   be'arranged to give  communication   with   It-jot. Istoke.      I  would  like   lo   see   Mr. Ge.nolle's    boat  give, lhe canyon'a fair irinj.      If it. cm  go, as he said, whore   the   Lytton   can  not. there need be no mo:o s.iid.    If he  must have tho road we could counect-jt  with   pack   trails   while   the   1 oad   i-  liuililing.      It won't do to wait  till the  road   is  imilr,  as to  be useful the supplies must go in eaily.   ,  CAPTAIN  KOKSI.ASl),  .S. .S,   l.VITON.

Genelle's  oll'e'r to put, ;i stcanier on the river  above Revel-toke. He staled he would  'put on a boat if .$1000 worth of business  w,-is-guaianteed. The question of aiding the boat by extending the wagon  road to the head of the canyon (which  Mr. Cenelle said had boon mentioned  to him) was Ihen discussed. Sevoial  'Big Bend people present said the canyon was safe enough to inn at, oidin-  ary water, and 'the road 'was not  absolutely'necessary at present. Finally Mr. Cenelle decided to visit the  Canyon with J. D. Boyd, one of Big  Bend's pioneer settlers.' He went next  day with C. S. McCarter, barrister,  and at lhe mooting Tuesday evening  told the council he would not run his'  boat Ihiough the rnnyou at all, and  repealed his oiler of $1500 worth,of  business guaranteed and Ihe extension  of the wagon road to head of canyon.'  IK: oU'ered to contiact for.the road for  $11000. lle'wiis not prepared t.o bring  his boat till after high water. ' After  some discussion it was resolved to why  Mr. Genelle's offer to the. government  with a recommendation to spend'the  money as proposed on the wagon road.  There was a number of practical Big'  Bend people present, but as "one was  reminded when .about to speak that  this was a boa id of trade ii'ieeling.they  said they did not care to intrude. The  Mail's columns are open lo'them,  however, and they express them as  follows, having beard 'Mr. Genelle's,  offer and the conditions attached to it:  lCIJW.XHU  ADAIR.  My idea is that building and improving Big Bend trails is better policy  than'sponding it on wagon road. , I  think it unnecessary lo build this road  to aid a steamer, as Ihe can}on is  safely open for .say three months".  Genelle's boat, which will, he says,  carry !i() tons, should imike, say,  nine ��������� trips a. month ; at, ' say.  20 tons a trip, this givws ISO tons a  month, which at ,$10 a ton equals  .$7200; about five times what he will be '  satisfieiVwith and all in one month.  Besides the cb4t of bringing in supplies  being greater over both " roarl and  steamer route than diioc-t from Reyel-  sloke, if ore is to come out, it is 'more  practical lo put it 011,11 boat running  through to 'Nelson or Trail than',to  take it-by boat to bead of canyon,  tran-lnp there to wagons and again at  Revolstoko l,o cars, if waggon road is,  necessary at all it must, go" beyond  iJ-inile and the cost of transhipment  and freightage would be a big item. -I  do not consider the building of a mad  a necessity' to putting on a boat and I  think Mr. Cenelle would agiee with  ine if he would ti y the. river, that is if  his boat is all that he claimed for her  Monday night. Yes! I am heavily  inlor'esled in Big Bond .and the company T represent will do about, $S0;)0  win lb of work.this season and if indi-.  cations continue good we vvill work .-ill  w inter.

The.$l,000,could be expended lo some  I'euolit in 'trails this year at, least,  when it is  not  necessary  to   put.   the  d lo   head  of   canyon.  f   say   not  necessary, from what, I know of the  canyon and its water stages, as I Ihink  il perfectly wif" for a period siiflieienlly  long to allow Mr. Gonelle do all the  business he asks guaranteed,'and mote  if it is I hole to bo done.

W-r. strongly object to the board' of
tr.uifi council taking lo itself the
power of pa-sing resolutions on such
piblic milteis as.the Hig P.end wagon
road, about wl-idi we st.ite truthfully
llieio is s-trong diversity of opinion,
without even submitting it to the vote
or feeling of its general membership.
Wr: u'giet I'b'say it, but we, have heard
ineuibeis of this yeiy, bnaid of^tr.klc
council say it themselves, there is
a deci'h'd politic.il leaning in it which
should' not be there. A body like
that, it"is licit a body but a committee,
.should not arrogate the light to judge
foi.a matter ad'ecling the general
public, lush it in on the city council
(winch font.iins three of. ilS niembei-s)

being hoard on the mutter. We, have
been at,, pains' lo gather, individual
opinion-. o:i t'ie subji ct of the board of

bji'cliiigto the board of trade council,

never lifted a voice to secure what is
properly outs. They were afraid it
would goagainsf their party, no doubt.
Poor pat liz.ins! We Hope Mr. Bostock
and other mainland members will
make such lepiesontations to the government as io cause them to include
P.. C. in their biil of "rights.'' All
