Tho Honourable Andrew G.
Blair, Minister of railways and
canals in the Dominion Government;, hns shown himself, over
since the acceptance of the high
office which he holds, tho champion of the rights of the people
as against monopolists and hood-
lors of all kinds, and he has just
now givon the peoplo of Fort
Sleele reason to thank thoir good
fortune in having a man of his
sturdy character at the bond of
lho railway department of the
Dominion.
When the Crow's Nest Railway Bill was before the Railway
Committee of the Houso of Commons at the last sosson, Mr.
Blaii' gave its promoters thoroughly to understand that in the
building of the road the interests
of communities already established in the district which lhe
road was to pass through must
ho protected in every reasonable
and possible way. The result is
that the railway company huve
not the free hand which they
have hud in tlio past of locating
their linos and stations wherever
il suited their own interests irrespective of the Interests of
pioneer settlements. Thus the
city of Mncleod in Alberta was
enabled to dictate to the Railway
Company whore the station
grounds al that point should bo
located.
The survey which has been
mado for the Crow's Nesl, Railway carries that line past Port
Steele at a distance of live miles.
Port Stoolo is the scat of Government in tlie district, and has
been so for many years. Ils
present, population is live limes
that, of any othor lown in tlu
district, and its merchants carry
on the groilt bulk ol' the. business
operations of a vast, urea of
counlry.
Thut such n> contra oi popultt
lion uml business should lie s'uh
tracked by a railway practically
built by tho money of Hie peoplo
would be a piece of glaring in-
juetico, provided u reasonably
easy route and one lliul would
not interfere materially with tlio
directness of n through line
could he obtained.
Such a route can bo obtained
over equiilly easy grades us the
present surveyed lino, nnd over
a country whore lho cost of construction will bo one-third less,
which will bring THE CROW'S
NEST RAILWAY WITHIN
THREE QUARTERS OF A
MILE OF FORT STEELE.
The map given uliovo shows
the old survey and the now
proposed one. The latter route
will not, materially lengthen the
line,
Hon. Mr. Blair has written a
committee of the citizens of Fort
Steele, in response lo a communication from them dealing with
the situation.    Ho says:
"This is really tho first state-
"ment I nave received on tho
"subject. 1 am pleased lo have
"it, and shall fool it my duty to
"givo the whole subject most
"careful consideration. I am
"sorry thai I did not have this
"statement before the contract
"was finally agreed upon. How-
"over, I will seowliatciinbeilone
"in the promises to meet your
'wishes us fully ns possible.
"Yours truly,
"Andrew G. Bi.aiu,"
This moans indubitably thai
when Mr. Blair investigates and
learns the exact conditions, he
will order the change lo be
made. He knows what is duo
to the peoplo when thoy are providing inonoy to build railways,
and he has the courage uud
strength of will to do what is
right. The ubhorruneo he bus
for people engaged in real estate
skullduggery, and his ucuteness
iu sizing up situations, will drive
into his mind the real reason
why tho survey wns made where
it has heen,
Bul, for a failure that could
not lie provided against, Mr.
Blair would have been fully tti-
l.nsons of self interest, ns well
us the Government oul of a desire lo protect lhe public wenl,
are equally interested iu having
the old survey changed nnd Ihe
lino brought inlo Fort Steele.

FORT STEELE HOSPITAL.
ll is extremely gratifying lo
be able lo announce thul matters
relating to ihe establishment of
a hospital al Porl Steele huve
now progressed so far lliul within a couple weeks lhe wards of
the new insl ilul ion will bo opened
for the  reception  of  patients,
Tliis satisfactory result is to be
ascribed largely to the undel'iiti-
gnble efforts of tho connnilt.ee
of noblo-uiiuded ladies who have
hud the work of soliciting subscript ions in hand.   These are
Mrs. Loavilt, Mrs. Iliuinoro, Mrs.
Bleasdell, Miss Bailey, and Miss
Prizzel.    Altogether ihey have
collected some siiini, and have so-
cured subscriptions considerably
in advance ol Hint amount.   The
money iu hand is sufficient lo pay
lhe whole cost of the erocliou of
Ibe biiilding, ils equipment wilh
lite necessary furniture, and tho
construction of u spacious veranda on throe sides of lhe hospital.   There will bo accommodation fur live or six patients lo
begin wilh, and lho building is
so constructed lliul wings ol uny
required dimensions muy be conveniently udded  when  occasion
duinnnds und Ihe funds of the
esltiblishnieul    porniil.     There
will be iwo wards, one for females and another for mules, llm
latter being complololy furnished
by R. I.. T Gulbi'iiilh, iu memory of   his   di'censi'il   brother.
Mr. Galbraith also deeded aboul
iwo acres ns a site for tbe hospital and tiidod lite lunds by a sub-
scription of ^JUO, lor which generous treatment public acknowledgment is due.    We sliull hope
during the coming yeur lo see
Iliis hospital greatly enlarged.

REDISTRIBUTION.
The Grand Forks Miner contends that the Provincial Government, in the Redistribution
Bill that is to be introduced at
the next session of the Legislature, will be treating East Yale
unjustly if provision is not made
for a separate electoral constituency formed from the district
south of Penticton to the boundary line. Tho Miner is right;
there should be a division of East
Yale into two constituencies, the
large addition of population in
that part of the Province de
manding an additional represent
ative to look after its affairs.
The same conditions apply in
East Kootenay, where very rapid
progress in development and population is now taking place, with
the certainty that this will be accelerated tenfold by the construction of the Crow's Most
Railway. The progress of East
Kootenay during the next five
years promises to be as great or
greater than in any other district
in the Province, and that fact
must be taken inlo consideration
in supplying our needs during
that period of legislative representation. The interests of
Northeast Kootenay, after the
building of the railway, will have
very little in common with those
of Southeast Kootenay, for there
will be comparatively littlo traffic
mul intercourse, business or
otherwise, between tho two ends
of the District, oach being supplied by the railway running
east, and west through it. The
present, constituency should be
divided by running a lino some-
wlioro about hull1 way between
Fort Steelo and Golden.
though the hospital is about
completed, furnished, and Uto
whole of the expenditure su fur
provided for by public subscription, no aid has been given by
the Government.
But, as intimated above, there
is the plainest kind of evidence
that the intention all along wus
to burke the Fort Steele hospital
project, so lliul the institution
might eventually be established
at Col. Baker's paper townsite
of Cranbrook. Formally years
it has been customary for tlie
Government to extend a salary
to physicians resident in the
more sparsely populated districts
of the province. Up till this
year tliis course has been followed at Fort Sleele. The physician
who has been resident here for
some years wus in constant receipt of salary from lhe Government. He was leaving here early
this year, nnd the promise wns
distinctly made lo his successor
that the salary would be con
tinned to him, Bul whul has
been the result? When lhe time
came to implement the promise
thut bad been made, it was found
that no provision had been made

FORT S'lEllLE HOSPITAL AND
HUN. COL. BAKER.
By reference to our news columns today it will bo seen that
the Fort Steele hpspitiil is now
aboul, completed and in a few
days will be ready to receive patients. This satisfactory announcement, we are compelled
to say, is not owing to any virtue
on the part of the Provincial
Govern nient (whose duty it was
here, as elsewhere in the Province, to make itself tho chief
factor in promoting hospital
movements), but really in spite of
the obstacles which that Government, at the instance undoubtedly of the Provincial Secretary,
has thrown in the way of it.
When the hospital scheme was
agitated last fall and winter,
Hon. Col. Baker, being constantly urged, made repealed
promises that the hospital at
Fort Steele would receive aid
similar to that which had beer,
extended to hospitals in other
parts of the Province.   Th

whon il became nn outpost of the
police patrol because ol' lho menacing attitude of the Kootenay
Indians in that year,
"Al ono time on Wild Horse
Creok, which Hows ti  mil ■ su
from Port Stoolo, thero wus u
(own. or largely it tont-iown, ol
about live thousand inhabitants,
wlio wore engaged in washing
ihe auriforous gravel in lho
creek, ll wus in itsday lho richest plnccr diggings iu lhe wesl.
and it is estimated that between
$15,000,000 uud ^20,0(JO,OOU were
taken oul of it. The total cleanup bus been put ill a much lower
figure llinn this, bul men wlm
were there and know what ihey
are talking aboul adhere In lhe
higher figures us more expressive of tlie wonderful wealth ol'
the creek, ll required bul a few
yours tor the eager horde lliul
was there to turn Ihi' gravel of
\\ lid Horse, or Stud Horse, us it
wus known then, into their puns,
cradles und sluice boxes, and
wash out the gold. Then thoy
departed and llie town disappeared. Ilul Ihe gravel is slill
being worked. The hydraulic
works of lhe Inviota Mining
Company and iho Nip-and-Tuck
are in unceasing oporatiou, cult
ing down tho bunks from strong
bends of water, lhe periodical
eiennup uuisl show pi'otitablo returns or these expensive works
would not be niiiinliiiiii',1. Itul
whut Ihese returns ure the companies keep lo themselves, so
ihal Wild Horse and Fort Sleele
are nol new milling centres.
"After the first rush ended lhe
town dwindled until only half a
dozen buildings were lell. Now
it is growing rapidly again, and
Ihere are several hundred residents. Tho town is situated on
a lilulV on the easl side of Kootenay river near the junction with
lho St. Mury's, 100 miles by road
from Golden on the Canadian
Pacific Railway, and about Ind
miles from Jennings, Mont., on
the Groat Northern Railway.
Ii is a centre from which radiate
all roads and trails lo the many
mining districts round about nnd
bus lieciiino so important a place
that Ihe Crow's Nest Pass Hail-
way cannot pass it by without
losing I rude. There is no other
supply iilnco in East Kootenay
nor can there bo for several
years, aud by that lime Fort
Steele will have grown inlo a
city. The place is situated high
in the hills and it is .healthy.
In Iron! tlie ever-rapid Kootenuy,

their birth, Norlh and soulli
stretches lho beautiful valley of
lhe Kooleiiny, lovely to look upon from Ibis height.
"Hero is llu- typical mining

like it in Wesl Kootonay, because
