It was with much pleasure the people  of  Revelstoke   heard   that   Kamloors  would after all come up to play hall on  the Queen's birthday,  and  when  they  took the Held on Monday they created  a very favorable'impression  as a  liu-a  stalwart   lot ' of   fellows.   They   went  first to  tne  bat but   were   ont  for  a  cipher.    Revelstoke's first innings produced four runs and  they  retained a  lead till the fifth   innings  when   Karn- '  loops got four.   At the  sixth  innings '  both   were   even   but then  Kamloops '  boys took the lead and by a few errors  in the field got a score of seven in  two  innings which gave, them   the victory,  by M to 9. For the visitors, Borthwick,  Franklin,   Mclnty're    and    Heri-hnur  played a good game and   weie   most  noticeable.    The Revelstoke hoys  will  go to  Kamloops on   the   0th   or   10th  prox  and   get  satisfaction   from   thu  wearers of the gray and   red.    They  can do it if they get a little  more  hatting talent and a strong piteher.  In the evening the ladies interested  in the. Kindergarten irave an entertainment in Peterson's Hull. They  served tea from 0 to Sand the number  of people who patronized the tables  was au indication of its merit and  popularity of the hostesses. The  conceit followed containing some very  good numbers. Tbe tableaux were  much enjoyed and the audience roared  at the pantomime. J. M. Kellie acted  as chairman.  During (he progress of the tea some  of the sports had bicycle, and horse  races. H. Scott won the first bicycle  race, F. Lewis the second. The horse  race was won by Pettipieee's chestnut-  Diphtheria is Abating".  Attention     is    called    to   W.    M.  Lawrence's new  ad.   this   week.

The'  l]rorld's mission is to mislead, to bunco.  , The Cohmit-t faces the facts as best  it can; it le.pudiates pnnincial responsibility in to to, calls us the Kevelstoke lieviler, and says it does not expect its explanation to be sat isfactory  to'us.

Government Organs Repudiate Responsibility of the Province.  " If you want to get any thing from  ;i Government, abuse  it,"  is  evidently  the   feeling   of   the  Itevelstoke  Mail.  From  three-quarters of  a   column   of  abuse  of  the  Provincial  Government  wi; pick out. a  few   words   which   show  that  the" MAIL   is   a   little   concerned  about   tbe   erosion   of ,the   Columbi.i  Kiverat Jlevelstoke, alt hough it is  far  more concerned, it seems,   with r swearing at I be Turner adiuini.stration.'   After;! rampage over politic,il spite,   culpable   negligence,   ,*iml    the  usual   vituperation,   it   suggests  that perhaps  " the Dominion   Government  might  be  memorialized for assistance.    Theie is,  it. seems, a little sense in tin* Mail aft i-i-  all and if instead of wasting time   riin-  ', niiigdown the Government at Victoria  if had started tin-   memorial   it,  would  have   done "much   better. .The  .Mail  seems  to   be   under   lhe  delusive  impression   that   Kevelstoke  is the  only-  place iu the Province which���������lo use its  own pieturo-qiie worils ���������"is subject  to  a rapacious and devouring river."   The  facts aie that on the J-'raser  there  are  many places where huge areas of land  have been washed away.    The task  of  looking after our great,  navigable   rivers is a Dominion mat ter and for many  .years   the   Conservat i ves, pursued    a  policy of drift and while they did   that  land drifted away as well. ' At Miller's  Landing, in Somas a tract of land,   estimated to exceed llit) acres,   ba.s   been'  washed away within Ihe last 20 years  ���������that, is  to   say  during   the  term, of  oflice of successive 'Coiiser.vative , ad-,  ministrations.    A .similar  remark  np-  ��������� plies to what is   known  as  the   Landing, at Chilliwack.    Where  i.heiv   was  mora than one farm  a  score  of years  since,   the   Fraser   holds   swa>*.    This  washing away has as well  taken   place  along   tbe   river  banks  from   Mission  City lo Ruby Creek.    If the Provincial  Government established such  a   piece-  denl a.s the Koolenay Mail wishes it to  flo where,   we   would   ask,   would   I be  matter end!*'    Our contemporary'naturally wishes that the   Dominion .and  Pioviiicial Ciovrrnnu'iiLs .should  spend  large sums of money at Revelstoke, but  we have to i eiiieuiber that' Kevelstoke  is not Hi it ish  Columbia,    The  Federal  Government,   as   we  have  fieiiueuLly  ' pointed  out,   is   doing   nothing   more  than its whole duly in   inipioving   the,  .Fiaser for navigable pin poses and lhe  -rant, of $10,000 is nothing   nioie  than  we are enl itb-d to receiv e.    \Ye   would  have' pi ef'erred   als<!   to   have, seen   ar  .substantial   sum   placed   in   lb- ' estimates for making t he Columbia   Uivci  a-*   far   as   possible,   navigable   for   a  considerable distance frou'i   Kevelstoke  nortbwaid.    While tbe Conservatives  held tbe reins of oflice there was  little  chance of (bat, hut. now there is a more  hopeful outlook.    Let, the  .Mail,   however! dismiss from its mind any lbought  (.hat this is a Provincial matter.��������� Vancouver IPurld.  Why the Tobacco Factories Closed.  'It is believed in trade circles, says  the Canadian 'Trade Review, that the  true leason why the toba'ceo factories  of W. C. Macdonald, ,of Montreal, and  Geo. 15. Tuckett ic Son, of Hamilton,  closed down was not i-o much on account of (he increase in the excise on  tobacco as the necessity of making new  moulds for the redni ed sizes of plugs  to be 'i-ohl at retail, for 5 and 10 cents  which'that, incrca-:e involves. As  most, of the retailers stocked- up for*  several months in advance in anticipation of such au inciease in the dues on"  (ohaccoj (he facloiies can well afford  to close'tlown for a while, until tliey  aie able to adjust their new sizesrwithout interfei ing with their customers'  ct i,  convenience.  Sunday street eats ran last Sunday  for the first time in Toronto. ' Tbe  proceeds of tbe day were about $3,000  which was given to charities.  'Under llie caption cf " A ' Baseless  Complaint" the Victoria Uultmiit says :  "A blast comes , from Kevelstoke  against J he local government for not  taking steps to prevent the carrying  a wav of I he bank 'of tbe Columbia at  that point. The British Columbia,  government has quite enough to attend  t'o in looking after inntLcrs that are  within its jurisdiction, ami is not culpable for refusing to do that which it is  - ������   c   ������    . .  under  no  obligation  and,   in   point of  ��������� fact, has no legal right to do. The  management of navigable rivers is  within the purview of the' powers  vested in the federal government, and  if the provincial authorities should go  out of I heir way to assume any I e-  sponsibility in the pioniiscs il' would  follow that they woubLbe liable to any  persons win') might be in any way damaged by what they did. The constitu-,  tiou gives the control of navigable  rivers to the Dominion government,  anil there is just as much reason to  complain that (he municipality of  Victoria docs not protect the banks of  the Columbia as there is for berat ing  the local government,I'm not doing so.  "The ..Uiteinent is made that au  agreement, existed betw.een t be pro\ in-  cial and federal go\ernineiils for cooperation iu protecting tne banks of  t he Columbia atr Kevelstoke. There is  absolutely no irulh in that.' It is true  (hat,in June last tbe Dominion government, appropriated, $10,000 for the  purpose, on condition that I he pro yi nee  should pay ,-i similar aniounl. Tbe  provincial government leceived no  notice of I bis tint il after I be late session  opened, and so were iu nowis- to blame  dor not expendiiigany inoiiey last year.  There was, iu fad, none to spend, even  if it had been desirable lo enter inlo  any such agreement with the federal  aulh'irilies. The provincial government, however, decided not lo do so,  believing that theie is no more I eason  why (be local revenues of BiiLish  Columbia should be charged with expenditures that, should ligbll'ully be  met   by t he genci ;il go*, ei nmeiil.  "We do not expect this exlanalioii  to h- satisfactory lo the Revelstoke  Keviler, but il will be to,ill I easonable  people. Then- is no doubl that then-  is need of a la I gc outlay at the point  ill 'question ; but if I here has been any  neglect, in the mat.ter,.it i.s hot the  provincial -government, but J.bat at  Ottawa thai, is responsible.' I'osi-n'bly  I he responsibility may lie, evi-ti nearer  Kevelstoke (ban, either , Victoria or  Ol.lnw-i."  , Development Companies.  The success in mining  operations  in  'British   Columbia,   ban,   as    in   ,other  places, brought to   the   front, a   lot of  new    "exploration  .and   development  companies," which in time will greatly  harm the  milling  industry.    Sonic of  these companies ;ire formed on a proper  basis with legitimate objects  iu   vie,v,  but many are organized with  more  of  an idea, of selling slock   than  of  really  doing work in mines.    They are  soine-  wbiit different   from   ordinary   mining  companies ,in   that   they    propose    to  acquire .different pioperties  in   various  parts of the'eountrv and develop I hern  into mines.   The plan   is  a 'reasonable  and good   one  under   proper  management, but (here is danger in   -'sratter-  ing'', loo much and t rusting lo luck , in  having one good mine make   iqi   for ;i  dozen   poor ones.    Most of  these  exploration   and   development   concerns'  are organized with a view to acquiring  a number of mines, Usually named, but  selected bv  the  managers,  and" these  managers   or   organizers , get.   certain  shares  ol    the   stock   for   themselves.  Out of .jOO.OOO shares, for instance, t hey  retain 2.10,000, andi try Lo sell   the   rest.  The fact iias developed lately iu British  Columbia that each of certain men tret  S.000  or'10,000  shares' for   ll>e-.use   of  their name alone,   and   know  little oi  nothing of  t lie company   itself oi   the  mines   it   was   to   acquire   and   op������n.  There. ; is   risk   enough   in  opening  an  oi diuai-y mine bj   investing  capital   iu  it,   but   these   companies   which   have  nothing  but   their   stock  to sell,   the  money from which i.s lo buy mines  to  be selected by Ihe managers, will   bear  careful   watching   and    inuuiiv.      Of  course   if  the organizers  are  men   of  standing   in   the  community  it  is all  very well, but there is  ever  some   risk  iu this as^appears from the fact of men  being given stock for the   use of  their  names,    'l'lie people who organize and  maintain   these  fake  concerns should  be reached by the  strong  arm   ol   Lhe  To be Placed on the Market.  It is understood that the difficulties  which have hitherto stood in the way,  of placing the tonnsiie of Rosebeiy  upon the market have been satisfactorily arranged and tli������ property, which  was .subdivided .some time ago, will at  o'nee be ottered for sale.
