The increasing price of silver gives a filip to the silver mining industry which it long has lacked aiid  the gold and copper bearing' ores and  auriferous gravels of Big Bend but  want capital and improved transportation to become world famous.

Oil "the transportat ion  question Mi.'Skeaff's opinion was that  a. waggon road to .above the Ciinyim  and then a suitable steamer would  be the primaiy step, and if it would be  taken hold of on ;i commeicial basis it  would not want for the necessary  money he thought.

The feeling is growing and becoming geneial  that inside a year a railway "boom"  will occtu' in the Trout Lake district  and then the public may prepare to  see a' camp that will astonish them.  The great dodies of ore in Trout L.-ike  are the common talk   of .-ill   Kootenay  "mining men a iid the prospect*- with  railway transportation are known to  bu as promising as those of any held,in  the   country.    The   Silver   Cup   ship-  ' tnents taken out at great cost have,  shewn what theie is in this district  and there are several other pioperties  equally good wailing a chance to come  into the shipping list.  Beaton   &   McCormick'a pack  train  are now; packing ore   from   the  Ethel  near   Trout Lake. City  to Thomson's'''  Landing.     This   property  will   likely  make regular shipments.  J. Q. McKinnon of Ferguson has returned from a Rossland visit.  Mesdames King and Le.valleol Ti out.  Lake Uity ate goii" on a Spokane Fair  trip, and Mr. Black is now'home, from  Cariboo.  Rossland and Big Bend.  From the numerous inquiries now-  being made about the Big Bend  country and its mineral resources,  especially from Rossland, which is undoubtedly the mining capital ;ind  speculative centre of Kootenay, there  is but little doubt that the prospects- of  that new country are cheerfully hi ight.  The Rossland camp, which is already  somewhat interested in Big Bend  propei ties, counts amongst its people  the cream i,if intelligent mining speculators and piarlical operator.*) gathered  from mining fields all over the world  and put clown together in this latest  and perhaps most' int cresting mining  camp of the age.

Sargent, who last  year left for the Klondvke, in town  again, the Mail secured an interview about the northern wonderland  at, first hand..        ' ' '     ������  ��������� I,left Reyehstoki-, said   Mr.   Sargent,  in Snly '!)7 and  returned   here on Sepl-  ember 21st,,'OS.    I   outfitted   with   two  Westminster friends  in   Victoria  and  left, for the north  on   the ss. Bristol on  Atigust.l5th.   arriving  in Skagw.-iy on  ,the 20th.    We   landed  our out lit and  started out, oh   the   famous   Skagwnv  trail for Lake Bennett, a distance of 41  miles.     The trip, would you believe il,  took from August 20 till October 10th,  and we walked altokether in that, time'  -150 miles, half of which was done with  packs.   The  trail  was  in  such a state  that we  had   to , keep   moving   backwards'and forwards  with   om   mil fit.  On the'27th of August  the  committee  closed down   the  trail''and   I'neu   with  guns along the   route suspended travel  till it was cleared and improved.   They  took two out of every   thiee travellers  and put them to, work on the tiail.  On  September   1st   the    tiail   was   again  thrown open and thai day  UIjiJ  Inn sea  passed a given point,  all 'heading  one  way.   The crush   became so great ihat  horses   died   every   few   yaids,  t'ili in  October 3500 lay dead   on the I rail and'  horse feed w;is 75 cents per pound.  We  kept oui animals alive on oatmeal and  bannocks   and   reached   Bennett with  two out of eight',:     While crossing one  of the shallow lakes one of'our party,  George Adams,   was drowned, but we  reached Bennett after .-ill.    -  Thete we bought a passage  to Daw-  sou at $50 each, with two weeks'   keep  of the boatmen  added.     The  voyage  down the lakes and river was uneventful   till   Miles    canyon   was'  reached,  where we stopped   to   recoiioiti'c   and  view, tlie dreaded-White   Horse  rapids  for the first time. " They looked wild, I  tell you. hut seeing others  shoot them  we ventured-the   passage,    too.      We  went through  the  canyon   safely,   but  wisely lightened the  boat (she carried  ,3500   pounds   and   six   people)   before  tackling   tlie   rapids.    By   doing   this  and closely watching others  (we  were  all landsmen) we successfully made the  rapids, the four  miles of   canyon  and j  rapids having taken just four minute*., |  The next bad place was at 30-Mile<river"l  where the current is very swift,   but'  that,   Loo,   \ye   paused    safely.      Five ���������  Finger  and   Rink   rapids   were   both ;  gone through .-ill    right,   and   then we j  reached the Peily.   when'   is   situated i  the   historic   IIiuNons ��������� Bay post, Fort i  Selkirk.    We encountered   ice coming .  down the Pelly, and it  caused   us considerable   annoyance and  danger  remainder   of   the.   way,   a--  the flue-,  weie so thick that it was in,possible to  the organization of ,lhe Kootenay*.  as a separate constituency at the earliest possible moment. ���������  There   is   little   question   fiom   the  Kootenay point-uf view of   the justice  of instituting  a   readjustment   of the  federal representation of this province,  and the liberal  government in Ottawa  ( an baldly do a  more popul.w local act.'  than to deal with the   matter so  a's to  give   the   KooU-nay   districts a repre-  resenlative of  their own.    They have"  the' necessaiy - qualifications   of   population and area and,.5...-1  principal  industry is becoming-so  important as to  require   considerable' clos.i  attention.  The huire area  and   multifarious and  divergent interests of the constituency  now represented bv Mr.  Bostoek   ren-  ders it perfectly, impossible  for hint lo  .keep thoroughly in   touch  with it and  them, especially  as its pi ogress is acknowledged   to   be   travelling   ataie-  iiiarkablv rate.    It   is  hard  enough to  'make   the   cistern   mind'  undei stand  western wants and to properly impress  them on it  the  I (-presentation   should  be adjusted to  ihe  true   nece's-il i'es of  the case.    It will   hardly   be  disputed  that   the.   interests'of    Koolc-nay  ai'e  more justly entitled  to and requiie tin-  services of one,, representative ihan do  those   of    Victoria   city   need   two or  Vancouver Island three  meinber-yso a  readjustment,  may   reasonably   he expected to result  in  a more,  intelligent  repie.-enlation   of the   provincial   sit-'  nation .'til around.  ��������� The statement, in Tuesday's Colonist,  based on this  interview   with Mr. Bostoek, that, "there is-no juslriic.ition foi  any  alteration,  in   the   constituencies  next year," is perfectly' understood   in  Kootenay if that alteiation   would   result (yet .perhaps it would   nol)   in   Ihe  taking, away   of   a   Victoria city seat  and Ihe giving  of'it to the Kootenays;  but we in Kootenay  will   fight.-just as  bard for the  immediate   readjustment  as the Colonist may to delay it-  There,     is   every   excuse   from   the  Kootenay si midpoint for dealing wifh  the subject before the census  is  In Urn"  and at the '���������earliest possible  moment"  ���������is tiie accepted lime at which' to secure  it.    The more1 talk of gerrymander in  which the t.'oloni-t indulges the poorer  and   weaker  will  appeal   the  case .of  those who  oppose   what i- locally considered to' be a iiio-l   desirable and ui'-  ces-.iry reform.    It will locally he geu-  ei.illy hoped that Mr.   Bostock's views  are   spoken   with   aut hoi ity, and that  next session of the house of   commons  may see an   alteration   made  securing  to   Kootenay   full   recognition   of  ils  claims lo representation.  ->   BRITISH COLUMBIA HONORED.

A life for a life   was  its cry  and  poor Boutin has paid the penally.   .lie  with J..Russell was going up the  river  in a   Peterborough  canoe   with  about  S00 lbs. of supplies  for  Buchanan's at  Carries  Creek, when   the' accident occurred which cost him  his  life.   They  had almost got to  Carues   Creek  on  Tuesday, being about  at.  China  Flat,  when, trying to  avoid   an. Vddy, that  occurs at )i oi'iint tliei-c, their  boat; got  swamped  and    precipitated     its    occupants   and  contents   with-stai tling  suddenness into  the" eddying  waters.  Russell   caught   the   painter   in-   the  Struggle underneath'.-iiid finally pulled  himself'with great exertion up to  the  canoe with   which   he   rose ' to   'the  surface just below the rim of the eddy.  lie was just, in lime to see Boutin   out  of his ieach" being'carried  up' stream  by the reverse   current,   but   he   was  poweiless tojielp hiin then as  lie   was  being carried down stream  as  rapidly  lis his comrade was carri"d   up and   to  try   and  swim   to  him   was  madness.  About, half a   mile   down   Ihe   canoe  struck in a logjam fiom which Russell  got ashore and hastened-back   lo   ijelp'  Boutin  if  he,could.   The   effort   wiis  vain, Boutin had gone! and  there   was  nothing to be seen but the usual'coiling  and curlingcurrent boisterously boiling  .-mo! breaking into endlesj eddies. Theie.  was nothing to do  for  Russell   but  to  return with   the   sad   hews   and', this  wilh a daring and nerve,   that  inspires  admiration even while remarking on its  rashness, he did   by  the   canoe  which  had so lately upset him -ind in which a  hole had to  be   mended   fiom  contact  with the log jam.  The only one near the scene of the  accident was George Kyio, coming  down the trail, lie heard Ihe sound  of pike poles on the rocks,and looking  oversaw the, two men in the canoe going up (and just Hearing ,the eddy.  They appeared to be all right and he  went on his way thinking nothing further of them I ill about  half a mile lower down he 'discovered  a box floating'down the river. This  he secured, and seeing it. was addressed  to Buchanan he concluded that an accident h.'id happened. He uil't J.

Multiplication and addition were the  rules under which they worked; positions were created for favorite:?,  friends and supporters. All this is too'  .well known now to require more than  a passing mention. When the new  government took up their duties they  found the civil list called for their  most sei ions attention, and they put  off no time in going through'' it carefully with a view to reduction of the  extremely heavy expenditures for this  service. Of course it did not take  them long to find the civil service bequeathed to them by the Turner government was not such as a wise and  judiciously economical government  could approve. , Where it was evident  work-, was being done that was not  necessary, .-ind positions existed which  had no good re;ison for their existence,  that work w7is immediately stopped  and those positions were iniinediately  aholished. That work will not, be resinned; those positions will not be  again created under the present government. The outcry of the chief organ of Tiirnerisin is quite- unwarranted  by the circumstances. We believe the  new appointments in the civil service  'will be very few, for the reason that  the government . are cutting * down  over-expenditures, not emptying positions to till them again, or abolishing  one position to make" another. The  whole'.workiiig sUlf is to be reduced  to reasonable limits, and the fat billets  and sinecures done away with. It may  suit thh Colonist's purpose to devote a  long leading article to this subject, but  as it'consisls only of a string of flatulent absurdities it. cannot possibly do  any harm or good to anybody.���������Times.
