i.1.'! i.in ironi Fork Steele
lo some jniiiii mi Ihe Groitl Nor
ilieru railroad'.
From nil the information that
is possible for us to obtain, we
can sum up the situation," as to
the immediate wants oil this section, as regards to the matter of
transportation" as follows : Wo
learn lhat tlie house of commons
are divided as to how and whom
the Crow's Nest railway shall bo
constructed, many of tlio members favoring the immediate construction of the road, and of the
government loaning the required
amount of money necessary for
the purpose—while others think
tliat the government should build
the road and grant running powers over it to all. railway companies that can connect, and may
want to use the road. Others
contend that it can, and ought to
ho constructed by private corporations, Others maintain this
would not do as tho road would
eventually fall into the, hands of
C. P. R. as that company controls
the terminal points at Nelson and
Lethbridgo. The situation in
the house is such that it is impossible at this time to 1 oresb adow
events. The result is that East
Kootenay must wait until the
powers that he can agree upon
who shall build and control tho
road, and nothing has been done
[during the last session to promote
or extend tho transportation of
ore, or further tlio mining interests of this section of tho Province, That we have in this
district a large amount of mineral
wealth cannot he denied, many
mines would become producing
mid shipping propositions were
it ] lossible to obtain the necessary
transportation, this summer some
ii.UOO tons of ore wns shipped
from this district, and if the
government could bo induced to
expend a small amount of money
on the lower Kootenay this fall
anil winter-the amount of ore
Ihal: would und could be shipped
next season would be increased
In some 80,000 or 10,00(1 tons. It
is a positive fact that the only
natural outlet for this district is
down the Kootonny, and why
should we be deprived of Ibe
privilege of using the only feasible route, for the transportation
of this largo amount of ore simply from patriotic motives, is
beyond our ken. There is no
difficulty to got the government
lo expend inonoy lo improve the
upper Kootenay " which is utterly hnpracliblo for the transportation of ore" but when wo ask
fur Urn expenditure of a small
amount of inonoy to improve the
lower Kooleiiny, there goes up a
terrible howl lhat we want to
benclil Ihe Stales. Ills nol so.
Let the government Improve the
river, and have a bonded warehouse nf tbe. intoriiultoiial line,
or at Port Stoolo, wc then can
ship all our supplies through In
bond, There is nothing doutl-
mental lo the interests of Citnuda
by so doing, for oui' merchants
citnpurchaso tholr supplies either
at Montreal, Victoria nr Vancouver, unil ship I'lielu in by this
route ipiicker and cheaper lluiii
any other way uml we can ship
our ore in any phioo of Iroiitmont
Unit should bo desirable by the
owners of mines. The, above
facts are patent to every resilient
of this dlstricl, and wen.
railroad an  assured fact,

PORT    STEELE    AT    THE
Spokane   Fair.
The mineral exhibition at the
Spokane Fair was a success,
about three fifths of ore on
exhibit was from British Columbia. Fort Steele had 100 mines
represented, and according to all
reports had the most interesting
exhibit at the Fair, much, surprise was expressed at the many
different varieties of mineral exhibited, Boundary creek came
next witli some 50 mines represented, other districts were represented, but not as they should
have boen, Trouble with Ihe
railroad about transportation was
tho cause of West Kootenay not
being represented as it should
have been. Wo shall give a complete description of the different
exhibits hi our next issue, and
Fort Steele may well bo proud of
the fact that the specimens collected for tho fair in four days by
the raining Association, was

Vancouver, B. C. - The opera}
ors' strike on the 0, P. R is en
ded and all the men are bad; io
work on the Pacific division. According to the terms of compromise, tho telegraph men as an
organized body, have been recognized. All strikers are to be reinstated except those who may
have committed acts of violence
or maliciousness, Tlie agreement
was brought about through the
representation of thu chairmen
of other departments of labor.
They reached Montreal Tuesday
morning and were in consultation with the general management
until an early hour yesterday
morning. It is understood they
wero prepared to ardor a general
strike of engineers, firemen,
break-men and conductors in case
an amicable understanding could
not be arrived at. While passenger trains havo been running
fairly close to schedule, freight
is blocked, and it will take at
least a week to got business back
to its normal condition. The 0.
R. T. re-organized tho operators
on the different divisions und are
now In a position to comply with
tlie company's rules and lay their
grievances before the respective
divisional officers, The victory
for Iho operators' is a complete
one,
The following is the copy of a
message received hero late last
night by the chairman of tlio
local committee of tho striking
telegraphers: "Tho conference
between tho coram ittoo of the 0.
H. T„B. L. E„B. P, L„andO.
R. Co,, this evening resulted in
an amicable understanding. Notify all the strikers and have
them report for duty as soon as
possible. Every operator, dispatcher and agent is to return to
work without any exception
whatever, We have received
rocogniziition and the schedule.
Have all our men use every endeavor and the greatest diligence
in moving trains and breaking up
the blockade. We have won
hands down. Notify all concerned."
Montreal, (let. K-.~II is learned

to their respective superintend-

[their grievances, which will be

asked a young man of the Wash
ington Star writer, nodding his
head toward the soda waler clerk
in a corner drug store.
No. the writer didu'l know him

the summer.    ■' Who is he 'P
"Well, I don't remember his
name, but he is a hanger-on from
Hunger-vtllo. I had an invitation
it} visit a girl that 1 am dead in
love with out in Mount Pleasant
and I went out there last Sunday
night, and while sitting on the
porch with the young lady this
fellow came up. 1 was introduced, but wasn't interested
enough to catch the name; the
only thing that interested me
was the probable length
of his stay there, and I
was very anxious on that subject
But he didn't seem to be in any
hurry.
" Finally, in desperation, I
remarked that it was getting
late—it was only 9 o'clock—and
I had bettor be getting home.
He said he was just thinking tho
same thing, and he would keep
me' company on tho cars, We
came clown tho Fourteenth street
lino, and I just ached to see that
cuss got off, so I could get back
on the hill with tho girl again.
At Seventh street he turned lo
me and asked:
"How far do yon go !"
" To the end of the line ; I live
near tho capital," I answered.
"At the end of the route he
got off and wont ovor toward the
depot, while I started toward the
capital, determined to slip back
in a few minutes—when ho was
out of sight—and go out Fourteenth street again; and within
ten minutes I was on the cars going toward Mount Pheasant once
more.
"When the cars got to the
cornor near the girl's house, I.
jumped off and started up the
walk. I could soo there were two
sitting on tho porch, a male am
a female, but it was too dark to
recognise the initio until I reached
Ihe foot of the stops.

The National Matte Smelter,
A practical, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities where
load ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has boon recognized witli highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of " to 80
tons per day, 11 is the slmpliest
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating, that
is known to-day,
It requires no extraordinary
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, and no fuel for the smelter after if is started, Tlie sulphur in llie ore is iis natural
fuel only, and its cost lias no
comparison with any other process of concentrating,
Wo aro prepared to furnish any
size or capacity plant complete
to substantial mining |ieop|o, sel
it up and furnish our men to mo

Route of the Proposed
Railway.
CANADA'S   NEW   I HUH WAY
ll Presents No Gretil Engineering Obstacles as Par West as
Rossland -TheWonderful Conl
Deposits and Their Relation to
Kootenay,
Loudon Times:—Some time
iiiro a short telegram in the Times
informed the public that the Canadian parliament had dissolved
without considering the proposed
loan to the Canadian Pacific company for tlie building of the
Crow's Nest railway. Until then
Ibe public can hardly have been
aware that such a project existed
and even now few know what and
where the Crow's Nest is, or how
a Crow's Nest railway can be of
much concern to anyone except
perhaps the crows. The British
Columbia correspondent, whose
letter appeared in the Times of
August ii, slated that tbe delay
.11 building the line was a serious
injury lo the Kootenay districts :
and, as the Kootenay goldfields
hope tu rival the Rand hefore
very lung, a short account of the
Crow's Xesl Pass by one of the
few white travellers who have
been there may be nol unwelcome.
When a transcontinental railway, to hi> wholly on British territory, was proposed by the
Canadian government, there was
i good deal of discussion as lo
■he most available pass through
iie Rocky mountains, According
lo the official plan the lino was to
go by the Yellowhead Pass. The
I 'aniulian Pacific company, which
finally undertook tho work, found
that with some trouble a railway
could be forood through the
Kicking-horse Pass, about 135
miles south of the Yellowhead,
This route was adopted, and no
une who has crossed America by
ihe Canadian line is likely to
have forgotten Ihe climb up Ihe
shoulder of .Mount Stephen or
the rapid run down into the Wapiti valley beyond on a gradient of
I in 211.
About 130 miles further south
lay a pass which by the comparative onso of its ascents and de-
cents, seemed lo invito the attentions of the engineer; bill this
t'row's N'esl Pass was ul tlllll
time out of Ihe question on account of iis proximity to the
United Siaies frontier, Now.
however, thai a less vulnerable
line of communication has been
established, ihe railway authorities nre trying to secure an
ii'ieruulive route Iiy a loop line
through Ihe Crow's Nest Pass.
Aboul 2.nun miles from Mont-
r..;il,   iieai'   Medicine   llnl.   Ihe
ni,tin line of the Canadian Pacific
begins lo slant away in a northwesterly  direction,     Hero  lln'
new linn will strike oil' due westward, ami   ii will  continue on
ibis  iMiii'se as  closely   ns  llie
crumpled surface of British Columbia  permits,  I'm' nearly sen
miles, crossing range after rung
tapping  enormous deposits   i
gold and silver and yel more pn
cioils coal, lill llie old route bends
s nilhward and meets il   not  far
from the Pacific Ocean and closo
tn the American boundary.

The   "fun."  n  quiulmngla   oi
barracks and stables and officers
dwellings, is garrisoned by one
of Ihe strongest detachments of
mounted police in the Northwest.
But their duties are not loo arduous. The lllnekfeel and oilier
onco warlike Indian tribes of this
region are very peaceable folk
nowadays, and a hundred troop,
ers succeed not only in keeping
order among llie red and white
Canadians, but guarding a long
stretch of invisible frontier
against smugglers and horse-
thieves. Tbe protection of their
own Hag. by the way, is quite
beyond their powers. McLeod
may be called the capital of
Windland. The west wind blows
steadily in one long and not loo
gentle blast from January to
December. A new Union Jack
is no sooner hoisted than iis iin-
l'liviiniout and disintegration begins, and tho Hag has to be
renewed about i)0 times in the
year.
Al: McLeod the now line will
pass the terminus of a branch
lino  which  comes  south  from
Calgary.   Proceeding westward,
with  tlie  snowy  peaks of tlie
Rocky mountains in full view, a
drive of 112 miles takes us to Pin-
cher creek, passing nothing to
speak of but an Indian camp or
two, and hero and there an inquisitive  wolf.    The grass  of
these prairies,  though it feeds
normous herds of cattle all winter, is brown thin and ugly; and
there is no other vegetation in
Windland except a few poplars
sheltered under the deeply cut
banks of the Old man's River.
There is one line of great boulders stretching north and south
for several miles over tho plain-
a  plain  that can hardly show
another stone as big as a man's
head.    According to an Indian

hurled these rocks at his mutinous Indians till Ihey were out of

Vancouver, B. p.- The operators' strike on the Q. P. R, is ended and all ihe men are back to
work on the Pacific division. According to the terms of compromise, the telegraph men as tin
organized body, have been recognized. All strikers are to be reinstated except those who may
have committed acts of violence
or maliciousness. The agreement
was brought about through the
representation of the chairmen
of other departments of labor.
They reached Montreal Tuesday
morning and were in consultation with the general management
until ati early hour yesterday
morning. It is understood they
were prepared to order a general
strike of engineers, firemen,
break-men and conductors in case
an amicable understanding could
not be arrived tit. While passenger trains have heen running
fairly close to schedule, freight
is blocked, and it will tako at
least a week to get business back
to its normal condition. The 0.
R. T. re-organized tho operators
on the different divisions and are
now in a position to comply with
the company's rules and lay their
grievances bofore the respective
divisional officers. The victory
for the operators' is a complete
one,
The following is the copy of a
message received hore late last
night by tho chairman of the
local committee of the striking
telegraphers: "Tho conference
between the committee of the 0.
K. T.,B. L. E„ B, P. L„andO.
R. Co., this evening resulted in
an amicable understanding. Notify till the strikers and have
them report for duty as soon as
possible. Every operator, dispatcher and agent is to return to
work without any exception
whatever. We have received
recognition and the schedule,
llave all our men use every endeavor and the greatest diligence
in moving trains and breaking up
tin:, blockade. We have won
hands down.    Notify  all  con-
eel'lH'll."
Montreal, (let. -: -It is learned
lhat all the telegraphers will go
tn their respective superintend-
ants of divisions for redress of
their grievances, which will be
passed up to the higher officials,
li is asserted also that the brotherhoods oi locomotive engineers,
Bremen, conductors and switchmen will seo thai ihe telegraphers
receive lair treatment in llie proposed ttdjustmoul ami adoption
" Know thai fellow in there *
asked a young man of the Wash
Ington Star writer, nodding bis
head toward tho soda water clerk
in n corner drug store.
No. the writer didn't know him
but had patronized tho soda fountain a number of times during
the summer.   "Who is he ?"
"Well. 1 don't remember his
name, but he is a hanger-on from
Hanger-ville. I had an invitation
bo visit a girl that I am duad in
love with out in Mount Pleasant
and I went out there last Sunday
night, and while sitting on the
porch witli the young lady thjs
fellow came up. I was introduced, but wasn't interested
enough to catch the name; the
only thing that interested me
was the probable length
of his stay there, and I
was very anxious on that subject
But he didn't seem to be in any
hurry.
"Finally, in desperation, I
remarked that it was getting
late—it was only 9 o'clock—and
I had hotter be getting home.
He said he was just thinking the
same thing, and he would keep
me company on the cars, Wo
came down the Fourteenth street
line, and I just ached to seo that
cuss got olf, so I could get back
on the hill with tho girl again.
At Seventh street he turned lo
mo and asked i
"How far do you go I"
" To the end of the line; I live
near the capital," I answered.
"At the end of the route he
got oil' and wont ovor toward the
depot, while I started toward the
capitol, determined to slip back
in a few minutes—when ho was
out of sight—and go out Four
teentli street again; and within
ten minutes I was on the cars going toward Mount Pheasant once
more.
"When the cars got to tho
corner near the girl's house, I
jumped off and started up the
walk. 1 could see there were two
silting on tlie porch, a male and
a female, but it was too dark to
recognise the male iuil.il I reached

The National Matte Smelter,
A practical, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities whore
load ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
wator jacketed Matte Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, In capacity of 2 to Hll
tons per day. It is llio simpliesf
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating thai
is known to-day,
If requires no extraordinary
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, and noIiiol for lhe smelter after It Is started, Tho sul-
phor in tlie ore is its natural
fuel only, and its cost bus no
comparison with any oilier process of concentrating,
We are prepared lo furnish any
size or capacity pluiil complete
to substantial mining people, set
if up and furnish our men to run
It for lliein on easy payments.

Interesting Description   of  the
Route of the Proposed
Railway,
CANADA'S  NEW  HIGHWAY
ll Presents No Great Engineer
ing Obstacles as Far West as
Rossland—Tho Wonderful Coal
Deposits and Their Relation to
Kootenay,
London Times:—Some time
iigo a short telegram in the Times
informed tho public that the Canadian parliament had dissolved
without considering the proposed
loan to the Canadian Pacific company for the building of the
Crow's Nest railway. Until then
the public can hardly have been
aware that such a prdject existed
and even now few know what and
whore the Crow's Nest is, or how
a Crow's Nest railway can be of
much concern to anyone except
perhaps the crows. The British
Columbia correspondent, whose
letter appeared in the Times of
August 21, slated that the delay
in building the line was a serious
injury to tho Kooteuay districts
and, as tho Kootenay goldfields
hope to rival the Rand before
very long, a short account of the
Crow's Nest Pass by one of the
few white travellers who have
been there may be not unwelcome,
When a transcontinental railway, to bo wholly ou British territory, was proposed by the
Canadian government, there was
a good deal of discussion as to
the most available pass through
the Rocky mountains. According
to the official plan the lino was to
go by tho Yellowhead Pass. The
Canadian Pacific company, which
finally undertook the work, found
that with some trouble a railway
could be forced through the
Kicking-liorso Pass, about 135
miles south of the Yellowhead,
This route was adopted, and no
one who has crossed Amorioa by
the Canadian lino is likely to
have forgotten the climb up the
shoulder of Mount Stephen or
the rapid run down into the Wapiti valley beyond on a gradient of
I in 20.
About 1.50 miles further south
lay a pass which hy the comparative ease of Its ascents and do-
cents, seemed to invito the attentions of tlio engineer; but this
Crow's Nest Pass was at that
tinie" out of the question on account of its proximity to tho
United Stales frontier, Now,
however, that a less vulnerable
line of communication lias been
established, the railway author
i'tios are trying to secure an
alternative route by a loop lino
through Iho Crow's Nest Pass,
About 2,000 miles from Mont-
real, near Medicine Hat, tho
main lino of tlio Canadian Pacific
begins to slant away in a northwesterly direction, Here the-
now lino will strike off due westward, and.it will continue on
this course as closely as tho
crumpled surface of British Columbia permits, for nearly 800
miles, crossing range after range
tapping enormous deposits of
gold and silver and yel moro precious coal, till the old route bonds
southward and meets it,not far
from the Pacific Ocean and close
lo the American boundary,
From Medicine Hat lo Loth-
bridge, whore coal mines exist, a
branch, line has been worked for
a number of years, Front Loth-
bridge lo Port McLeod llie way
lies.over a monotonous prairie
and pusses no place of importance, McLeod itself is billy important us a military station.
The  "fort," ti quadrangle   of
barracks and stables and officers
dwellings, is garrisoned by one
of tho strongest detachments of
mounted police in the Northwest.
But their duties are not too arduous. The Blackfoot and other
once, warlike Indian tribes of this
region are very peaceable folk
nowadays, and a hundred troopers succeed not only in keeping
order among the red and white
Canadians, but guarding along
stretch of invisible frontier
against smugglers and horse-
thieves. The protection of their
own Hag, by the way, is quite
beyond their powers. McLeod
may bo called tho capital of
Windland, The west wind blows
steadily in one long and not too
gentle blast from January to
December. A new Union Jack
is no sooner hoisted than its un-
ravelmont and disintegration begins, and the flag has to be
renewed about 30 times in the
year.
At McLeod the new line will
pass the terminus of a branch
line which comes south from
Calgary. Proceeding westward,
with the snowy peaks of the
Rocky mountains in full view, a
drive of 32 mil.es takes us to Pin-
cher creek, passing nothing to
speak of hut an Indian camp or
two, and here and there an inquisitive wolf. The grass of
these prairies, though it feeds
enormous herds of cattle all win-
tor, is brown thin and ugly; and
there is no other vegetation in
Windland except a few poplars
sheltered under the deeply cut
banks'of the Old man's River.
There is one line of great boulders stretching north and south
for several miles over the plain-
plain that can hardly show
another stone as big as a man's
head. According to an Indian
tradition the Old Man, otherwise
Auld Hornie, Nick, or Cloutio"
once overslept himself, and awoke
to find one of his subjugated
tribes' fleeing northward from
his tyranny, The indignant
devil stood up on Chief mountain
on the .present frontier, and
hurled these rocks at his mutinous Indians till they were out of
.reach, "A stone's throw," diabolically speaking, is thus found
to measure 10 miles, One or two
nomadic hands of Stony Indians,
a squad of mounted police, and a
handful of pioneers do business
and play polo at Pincher's creek,
but here civilization ends, so far
as a postal system and policemen
represent civilization. Striking
up from the creek, the trail at
first runs across a rolling prairie
of brownish green, specked with
yellow "stiukweod," delicate
harebells and dwaf t wild roses,
An occasional slice of prairie has
been enclosed and produces very
fair crops of wheat, oats and barley. After half a day's drive we
lind ourselves ascending a beautiful valley among the foot-hills,
with a,crystal river winding
down through a pine-wood on
our left, At a turn of the road
wo Hnd ourselves in the midst of
an Indian band, These "Stonies"
are friendly enough, but they
still live by tho chase in preference to government rations, and
they are—or wore till recently-
exempt from the time-restrictions
of the game law. The trail now
keeps the Porcupine hills on
right—a trailing spur o:
Rockies, hare and brown, ril
with parallel linos of sharp
bursting in vertical sl
through tho soil, and very t
sprinkled wilh stunted li|

.Continued from page !
Tbe main trail to the Crow's
Nest is nothing to boast of. It
runs uphill and downhill regardless of gradient, and a wagon
journey along this road is rnther
a perilous adventure. Bul even
Ui,. imminent danger of an upset
can hardly distract Ihe traveller's
attention from the growing grand-
cur and multiplying variety of
the landscape. Behind us now
lies ihe bristling Porcupine
range. In front rises higher and
clearer the tremendous bulk of
Turtle mountain. The outline of
llie Turtle's back, indented al regular intervals, is curiously correct, but on a. near view it is plain
thai the shell only slopes to the
head and tail, while the sides fall
away in precipices. As the trail
now wheels to the left and approaches the turtle's tail, he seems
to be squatting back to back with
a lion—a mountain uncommonly
like Arthur's Seat. Far away in
the west, but standing boldly out
in the sunlit mountain air, the
('row's Nest rises over the lion's
back. It is a huge and solitary
dome of naked rock, holding
proudly aloft from the neighboring clusters of peaks. Thirty
miles from Pincher creek, after
a rough day's ride, the pass suddenly narrows to a gorge. There
crouching between the lion's upright Hank and the turtle's well
docked tail, is a log house that
does duty for an inn. If will
doubtless develope into a hydropathic institute when the railway
conies. For there, in the garden,
gushing out of a cloven rock in
the turtle's hind foot, is a river
of milky-white sulphur water.
The beavers seem to have used
this spot as a sanatorium; their
(lam still obstructs the stream n
few yards from its source, and
the stumps of the trees that they
fulled stand all along the bank.
Leaving the Inn betimes in the
iniirniugi the traveller Jlmls himself almost immediately out of
the sulphurious gorge. The pass
widens into a valley with a comparatively level bottom, shutting
in mountains on every side. The
Turtle rises In the roar shutting
out the sunrise; on tlie left a
deuce pine forest slopes up from
the southern bank of the Old
man's fiver, clothing with green
the foothills of a snow-streaked
sierra. Another sharp-toothed
ridge, gray lint dashed with
glistening white; seems to bar
the way to the west. Far olf on
the right; looking over the heads
of all the interviewing heights,
the Crow's Nest towers in stony
solitude.
At first the road, is bad beyond
the reach of adjectives. In ten
miles it fords the Old Man's river
six times and smaller streams as
many more. Then there is a
brief interval of passable travelling; Tin. woods have retreated,
and Ihe strath has been found
jusl wide enough for an enterprising Scotchman to establish
himself as ihe pioneer farmer of
the Crow's Nest Pass, But a
couple of miles further west the
wagon trail comes to a sudden
end on the shores of a lake which
stretches from side to side of the
pass. The scene here is exquisitely beautiful. A gentle breeze
ciiines wandering down ihe pass
niid the ripples splashing on the
eastern beach make harmony
with lapping of the woodpeckers
Other sound there is none, nor
sign of man's existance. A"*roeky
bridle path winds off to the right,
bul,, narrow us il is, il can find
nu room lo puss along the shore,
and is forced to climb up over a
shoulder of the mountain; Dp
uml down il goes, ill inosl iiuprn-
cticiible angles, now overtopping
the lir trees thai spring from ibe
edge <>l' Ibe lake, and llnui dipping
almost inlo llle clear, green waler
beside   their   I'ools.       Here   Ibe
footing is of solid rock, and thero
li lies among sharp loose fragments brought down with a winter avalanche;    Such travel is
terribly hard on the unshod pack
ponies llinl now and then pas;-,
ibis way. As llie trail comes
around a mountain spur and falls
once more to Ihe level of the
lake, a vague and distant murmur breaks into a deafening roar
anil a torrent crosses ibe path.
i A single tree trunk carries a
Careful fool passenger safely
over. Pouring    oul     of    a
cavern in ibe overhanging cliff
the little river thunders down in
a waterfall that will presently
receive tl name and be photographed tin' the guide luniks.
The path now rises steeper and
rockier than over, till une is glad
to climb witli hands as well as
feel, marvelling that a lingerless
pony with not1 pounds of freight
on his back should be able to
make the ascent al all. Now and
then, indeed, even a sure footed
Indian cayuse fails ill the attempt
and topples over into the bike.
After an equally sharp descent
'the trail looses itself in a- jungle.
Mountains, lake. sky. all are
hidden by the dense brush that
threatens to put out the traveller's, eves and makes it hard to
distinguish the path tinder his
feet. On this path, or close to
it, an Indian hunter not long ago
came upon his quarry before he
could aim his gun. and perished
in the embrace of a grizzly.
The bushes draw back and the
trail passes out inlo a desolate
stretch of burnt forest, where the
click of a grass-hopper and the
momentary gleam of his yellow
wings alone enliven the scene of
death. The mountains on tho
other side of the pass reappear,
so close tiiul so high that they
seem ready to fall upon the invading mortal. The climbing sun
peeps over the jagged edge and
tlhuniuales the snow he cannot
molt; but the beautiful vision is
raited and marred by the forest
of backened stems through which
it is soen. Unhappily, such devastation as this is not rare in
Canada, east or west. A few
miles further south I have seen
a mountain of valuable timber on
lire for a week, and I left it burning,
'I'lie grimy desert is left behind
and the land lives again. A rivulet babbles down the trail,
careless of passengers' rights,
Grouse flutter up in disgust from
under your feet, Squirrels and
chipmunks chatter protests
against your intrusion. Another
lake appears, exquisitely beautiful like the first, with an eagle
soaring overhead and a Hock of
wild ducks breaking the reflection of the mountains on the shining surface. A few miles beyond
this point Ihe sources of the Old
Man's river are passed, and the
next little stream the traveller
sees is llowing west—to the Pacific instead of the Atlantic. The
summit of llie pass is reached,
bin there is nothing grand or
picturesque about it; lake and
precipice are left behind; the
eye rests on nothing hut thickly
wooded hills such as one can see
without going to the summit of
the Rockies. This district, indeed, is only interesting from a
commercial point of view, .lust
beyond the watershed which
forms llie boundary between the
province of British Columbia and
the Northwest Territories of
Canada, excellent coal has been
found.     Professor Selwyn,  the
tin institution of which (opart
from its political history) bulb
parties in Canada tire proud, Mr.
Laurel' may be expoctod In look
with tt soniewluil more critical
eye Iiiiiii his predecessors on
Canadian Pacific proposals.
However in llie interests of a
rising Canadian industry llint
has to depend on the United
Slates for its coal, il is In be
hoped that by some moans nr
oilier the Crow's N'esi railway
will soon be built.' 'the engineering difficulties, as has been
hinted, are nol very steal. The
only seriously troublesome section of Ibe puss, Hint which has
just been described, is skilfully
avoided by u line passing among
tiie hills lu the north ot the
lakes. For about 10 ni'tiosbeyond
the Watershed Ihe route is very
monotonous, burnt trees being
the mosl notable of the laud-
scape. Then the line encounters
a little scenery on the Elk river.
Crossing tliat stream and the
tableland which separates it from
the Kootenay, the latter river is
reached without any difficulty
even by the tracklayers. The
next step will be a little more
troublesome. The explorers,
who ran a preliminary line
through the Moyea highlands,
which separate the east and west
Kootenay valleys, give amusing
accounts of their experience. In
many places they hardly set fool
on the ground, having to leap
from rock to rock and from log
to log like mountain goats. But
tlie crossing of the Moyea region
will bo child's play compared to
the task that will confront the
engineers when they have crossed
the twomining glens of the Kootenay and the fruit-bearing strath
of the Okanogan. If they carry
a railway across the wild highlands separating those valleys
from the level country of the
coast, without dipping now and
then into foreign territory, the
men who built a line through the
Kicking-horse Pass will have
earned a handsome addition to
their laurels. That, however,
can wait, The necessaries of the
hour will have been met when
the Crow's Nest is joined to the
Kootenay,
