' > - >       .j; '  '^'TheiTRailway Commissioners ,ha\e  spent.a wcekjit the co;ist'' w heie Jmey  have b'eerThearing' tlieTgnev.inces^of  the cities, boards of trade,"lumbermen1  and the public generally., i.The commissioners'"'have"'shown "a creditable  "desire to have the railway companies'  live up to their duties'to "the public.  The coast, lumbermen . asked they  should have the^same rate of haulage  as the mountain mills but the C."P.It  company officials replied* the  mountain'lumber was of loner grade  than coast, while' the haul was 400  miles shorter. ''The coast lumbermen  also complained of the disparity of  charges between fir and cedar. The  commissioners considered this disparity ..unjust, and ' it is likely the  railway companies will be icquiied to  do away with it. .'        '    t  The commissioners will arrive in  Revelstoke Tuesday, and "will hold a  sitting here that day. The Board of  Trade held a meeting last night to  arrange the business 'to be brought  before the commission and' Messis.  O'Brien,, Lawrence and Floyd were  appointed a committeee to draw up  a memorandum showing the unfairness of rates to Revelstoke, which was  charged the rate to the coast and  back here; that Revelstoke was  omitted .. from the list of points to  which excursion rates were granted,  that the C. P. R. refused to lecogni/e  claims for'furniture or goods damaged  in transit; and that Rc\clstoke had  been deprived of the local distributing  rates which were in force in this "city  prior to the opening of the Crow's  Neat road, resulting in the wholesale  h-uses being driven out of the city.  The Boaid will ask that these grievances be remedied,1 and that Revelstoke should not sutler merely because  it is a non-competitive point ns that  is no fault of the people here though  Mr. Greer admitted that was tho  reason why Revelstoke had not better  rates and Ihe Board take the view  that it is within the rlntioa of the  commission to remedy cxxessive nites  levied merely because a point lias not  a competing line and cannot help itself. The abo\e committee will present the complaints on' behalf of the  Boaid.  The Mayoi will biing under the  notico of the commissioncis the  question of Douglas ,Sticet ciossmg,  as there are several points to be decided, namely, whether the cio-sing  ought ti. be granted in the face of the  opposition of the railway company,  whether it should be a level crossing  or a subway, whether the C. P. R. or  the city should pay the cost; and  whethoi each should contiibute its  shaie.  The lumbermen will wait on the  boaid to present some giivcances they  have against the existing fi eight  schedule.  Deputations from Kamloops, ban-  don, Kaslo, and other points will also  wait on the board at Revelstoke to  present their railway grievances.

On account of the snow  the Silver Cup belt could not be followed south-east acioss the Silver Cup  mountain, but theie is little doubt  that the Poplar creek belt is its southeastern continuation. This supposition is based on the charactei of  the rooks and oies, the stiike of the  looks and the position of the belt  lolativc to other foimations.
