The Hills are green, the creeks  are,, full, the fields are > lovely  with the growing grain, and all  in ail nature is in a very pleasant  mood at present.  The Great Northern Railway  engineers-have now surveyed as  far;, north as the mouth of the  Elk river for the proposed  Jennings-Elko branch. Mr.  Watkii'is, the'chief of the party,  was at first impressed with the  desirability of the Kootenay  River route from the boundary  line north,"but it is now reported that-the party surveying have  ,been practically blocked by a  bluff on the' river banks, over  which it is too high to go, and  below which high water mark is  struck. ' So that the survey is  likely to swing.from the Kootenay. and cross the Elk river-  somewhere .near, the*' wagon  bridge;      -,    ���  An arrival from Kalispell reports that fifteen miles of the  road starting from Jennings has  been contracted for, and that  work on the.right of way will be  commenced next week.

'  Mr. Galbraitk, Indian Agent,  arrived here last week on one of  his periodical visits to the Indian  reserve. His cheeriness is remarkable and conlageous, and if  he could only have looked be-,  hind as he left us he'd have seen  some smiling faces iu his wake.  Mr A. G. Lindsay visited the  village a few days ago. ' He reports'business good at Kalispell  and Tobacco.  Mr. McCann of Kaslo, has  been visiting his sister, our  teacher, and was visibly delighted with the open country and  green,hills in this vicinity. Tho  contrast between Tobacco Plains  and Kaslo must be great. He  reports the outlook for mining  on Phillipps creek as very  promising.  There is not much enthusiasm  at present in either mining or  prospecting, but with the advent of the railway better times  are looked for.   *  Late Telegraphic News  Special to Til K l,IK-.M��K-.'T<>-<.

In many places,   however,  the celebration   is  more  in the  nature of a memorial day.   Many  of the Union Jacks that are displayed from the windows of the  shops on Piccadilly are wrapped  _up in crepe  and  other sombre  materials.     Services'were  held  in all  churches throughout  the  Kingdom this morning and  the  good deeds of  the  late   Queen  were the universal theme of the  sermons.  Melbourne, Australia, May 24.  The birthday of Queen Victoria  is being celebrated throughout  the cities of the Australian Federation in the same way as during her life time.

Kaslo, May 24.���The Queen's  Shamrock II Dismasted in a Squall.  Southampton, May 22.���The  Shamrock II, with King Edward  and .party on board was dismasted today by a squall off Cowes,  Isle of Wight. The King, who  was on deck, had a miraculous  escape. Topmast, mainmast and  bowsprit were all carried away.  The entrance into the race of  the cutter  Sibarita,   placed the  captains of the  two  Shamrocks  under  the  necessity  of driving  their boats at full speed in order  lo  make a  creditable showing,  and   promised  King   Edward an  opportunity  of   witnessing' the  best race  of  the  series.    ���-The J  wind  Had" freshened,���raiid   was ��  blowing- al, twelve  knots,   with  the prospect of magnificent  racing.      While   the^ yachts   were  maneuvering    for'' the   start- a  squall carried away the bowsprit '  of   the    challenger,    the   extra  strain  thus' thrown  on the topmast, proved  too   much for the  spar and it whipped,   broke and  doubled off to  leeward carrying  the jackyard and the gear" over  lli'e  side iu a terrible tangle, as  the topmast*fell, the great   steel'  mast swayed for a   moment and  'then   'by   .great   good    fortune  plunged, over' the  side into the *'  water with the sound  of break- -  ing wire and tearing gear in the  air.-       . r 7" T ��� * 7  The   members    of   the   royal'  party were seated on deck,'close  tortile   companion   \yay.      The  King was showing keen pleasure  at   watching   the   fight    which  captain Sycamore  was 'making  for  the advantage at the start.    ,  The yacht was racing along at a  formidable angle  and   the  sloping  deck   with a mere fringe of  rail   seemed   rather   a   perilous'  place for the accommodation  of  the visitors.    As ��� the  wreckage  swept   tho    deck   it   was   most  astonishing   that   no   one vwas  hurt.     For a moment or two the  situation  appeared  to   be   very  grave-.      The   King  maintained  his   composure.      Most   of   the  head     men     went     overboard.  Within five seconds of the disaster the Shamrock I bore  around  to  render assistance, when  she-  in turn was caught by the squall "  and  her  topsail spar collapsed. ' i  making her helpless.    The press  tug following the racers  ranged  alongside cthe   helpless yachts.  and a torpedo boat which was iu  the  vicinity  and   the   Sybarita  sent boats   to   the   scene.      In  answer  to a  hail captain Sycamore     sent    . the      reassuring  message  that   all  on  board had  escaped without injury.  As   quickly   as   possible   the  King and the royal  party were  transferred    to   the   Erin,   and  later the King, accompanied  by  Sir  Thomas  Lipton,   lauded  at  Southampton  en   route  to.London.     The crews  of tho racers  set.  about   clearing    away    tlie  wreckage.     Owing   to   the   unwieldy   nature  of   the spars and .  gear,.: it,was found impossible  to  get   them  on  hoard,   and   they  were  cut away  and   allowed to  sink  after  the  buoys  had been  placed tp mark the  place.     The  yachts were then towed back*   to  await   a   decision    as   to   what  should be. done   towards  repair--  ing them.  Large parties of Boers have  crossed Orange river into Cape  Colony.

"  -Xo  I  T will  be  satisfactory  to our  readers to learn with definite-  ness  a  thing  that   has   always  been' believed,   and   would   be  A demonstrated   in   proper   time,  namely; that Port Steele  would  , have^a railway right into  town.  , There was during the, past year  a good deal  of concern felt by  some of 'our citizens   regarding  this matter, perhaps, as to what  railway company would seek  an  entrance into this  town,   bul it  was all along apparent to  those  who reflected a little on1 the subject  that it was necessary that  those most benefitted, the people  of .Fort Steele, should take  hold  of the matter in a  business   like  "��� manner,  and see that the'road  ��� would be constructed at an early  .day.*      By   tlie   securing   of   a  ���charter for-the Kootenay Central  'Railway, from the, Dominion  as  ' well as the Provincial   Legislatures, and from the Provincial a  "substantial bonus of''$4,000  per  ��� mile, much has been accomplished, and we may expect inside of  thirty days the preliminary steps  in relation  to railway construction". .   .   '  ��    *    *  So far in tlie history of this  district Fort Steele has been the  attraction, the 'mining center,  and government headquarters  for the whole of South East  Kootenay.  IijiY; never had such a good -opportunity of doing* so much good  for the mining interests of South  Eust Kootenay. The granting  of a charter, together with a  subsidy of .���?-!,000 per mile to the  Kootenay Central Railway Company may be ' accepted as the  best evidence that the interests  of the people in South East  Kootenay have been well looked  after by the majority of the  legislators.  -X-        * *  The Kootenay Central Rail-  way will build its line right into  the town of Fort Steele.  It is expected that surveying  will commence in .Tune.  The line will leave the Crow's  Nest branch, at a point between  Elko and the Crow's1 Nest Landing, thence in the most direct  line to Fort Steele. This por-'  lion of the line will be constructed this year.  It is the intention of the com-1  pany to build to Windermere as  soon as possible. J  There was never any doubt  felt  here  but  that  Fort Steele  f  would have railwav connections.  The matter is now settled, and  the people of Steele, and the'  mining men of the district surrounding can lay their plans  accordingly.  fcftftft^fcm.  ft  W'&.-lfi.zfi  ���**\_,'">V���?V\\?��V "������  '��"  ftft  iJiStc  ���I'  ft  Headauarters   for   Mining   and   Commercial   Men  ft  The  Hotel  All    Modern     Conveniences  FOKT    STEELE,   B.

Surveys  have already been made from  ��� the International bounda'ry to  Crow's ��� Nest Landing by ' the  Crow's Nest Southern Railway  Company., A preliminary survey has been made'of the proposed route of the Kootenay  Central Railway as far north as  Canal Flat. ���  '     *        -X-        *  'Recent reports received tat  Fort Steele, relative to the build  ing of the Crawford Bay railway  are to the effect, that thirty  ' mile�� of actual construction will  he completed this year.  *    ���.�����    *  The objective points of ihe  Kootenay Central and Crawford  Bay Railways is Fort Steele, the  reason of this is the predominating advantage of location over  all other points, and ��� the conditions as they have been developing from day to day for months  past show that these facts are to  be realized, and that the progress of Steele during the present year will; be ^greater than  ever. Thus, then, the people of  Fort Steele and others, all over  the district, may. go forward into  the year 1901. with full confidence  in the advancement of trade, and  the fullest development of the  'mineral, resources, ��� which ' have  become so well marked in the  Fort Steele district. ^  *  ' * ' *  Tlie    Provincial    Government  NOTICE.

That resurrection is   very  great.      It  may   well   hold   our  :attention���it isso sublime in   itself, it is so wondrously atlesled  it has been so significant a factor  in the history pi' this world since  the first fluster.   Bul that resurrection, to those who grasp  the  signilicauce of Christ's character  Pis-just such an event as might be  i expected from such a character.
