To the Editor of.the Herald:  Sir.���������1 hope I would not be intruding when I ask you to find space iu one  of your columns for the following  questions, which I would like to have  some information upon by some of  the law-makers of the statutes of  British Columbia.  1st. Can the government of the province levy taxes upon real property  that they cannot give n title to.  2nd. If lawful, is it constitutional  for the said government to take the  said taxes and appropriate them in  some of the other districts.  Tax Payer.,,  : Tho Revelstoke Street Lighting Co,  held a meeting today for the election  of officers. A report of which will  appear in "Wednesday's issue.  February 1st has been set as the day  for the C.P.R. to takeover the Columbia & Kootenay Navigation Co.'s line  of boats, plying on the Columbia river  and Arrow Lakes., -  The remains of the late Mrs. Thos.  Richardson,1 of lllecillewaet, were interred in the Revelstoke cemetery on  Thursday morning last, a large number of friends attending. Rev. Mr.  Yolland conducted the solemn rites.  Flags in town were flying at half-mast  and other tributes of esteem were paid  in respect,to the deceased. .  Andrew- Karlson, who came from  California?last spring and went into  the Big Bend with Prof. Noson for  the" summer, got his feet- severely  frozen last November, the result being the amputation of several of his  toes. Mr. Karlson is now stopping  .at tho Columbia and when seen by a  "Hkkald reporter today, say* he thinks  ho will be around again in the course  of a few weeks. He also speaks highly of the skilful treatment rendered  by Dr. McKcchnic.  There is one question of very great  importance to Revelstoke .that will  have to be decided during the current  yeiir, and that is the question of transportation to Big Bend. For many  years it has engaged the attention���������of  mining men and others interested in  the Upper country, but the old-time  method of pack-train transportation  still obtains. The new C.P.R. bridge  over the Columbia has been constructed with a view to tin* passage of  steamers for up-river points, and it is  stated that steamers will be put on  that route as soon as the state of the  water permits. Should this be so, it  will only be .a temporary makeshift.  How many weeks in the year is it  possible for a steamer to run between  Revelstoke and Laporte ? From - the  time the ice disappears until the high  water comes it is difficult for even a  rowboat to get over the riffles and  sandbars, to say nothing of the half-  submerged rocks. The river usually  commences to rise about the middle or  end of June. "While the rush of the  high water is on tho passage is most  dangerous to anything that floats, and  in many places the current is so swift  that even "lining up" would not avail.  The time, then, from the subsidence  of high water and the forming of the  ice is about ��������� the length of the period  that the river could be of any service  for the'transportation of heavy freight  between here and the Bend. Let, us  say the first week in August is about  a safe time to commence steam-boating on the upper -river. We should  then have three months to the begin-  ing nf November, when Jack Frost  usually puts his seal on the still portions and broad shallows of the river.  No doubt much could be done in those  three months, and if the government  would spend a proportional amount of  money in denning the channel to that  which has been expended for the past  six or eight years on the lower river,  there is very little doubt that the  three months of navigation might  be extended into six.  But even with unclear channel and a  longer period to work in, the river  will not rneefthe. requirements of Big  Bend in the near future. In the first  place, Laporte is the extreme point  that a steamer from Revelstoke could  reach, and Big Betid is still thirty  miles away. It has been said that a  tramway could be constructed around  the rapids and a boat placed in the  smooth water beyond. Tho breaking  "of b'nlk"respe'cially~oL'~"orerwould~be~a  great item of expense, and probably  more than one promising mimi could  not be worked on account of that  expense, seeing that before the ore  gets to the smelter there would ho  several more transfers, from boat to  cars and vice versa.  What we wish to impress on mining  men and the people of this community  is that the best, cheapest, (in the long  run) and proper method of hauling  freight, etc., to and from Big Bend is  bya -light-railroad or tramway; and as  the government has' given so much  land,to less important roads there is  great probability' that a company  guaranteed by the government, as the  Nakusp ic Slocan was, or bonuscd'~ns  the Columbia & Western was, would  take the matter up and carry it to a  successful conclusion, similar, to the  two roads mentioned. A charter is to  be applied for at the coining- session  of the legislature, and it is to be hoped  that our member will look into the  bona fides of " the applicants, and if  they are o. k., that he will use his  utmost endeavors not only to get them  the charter, hut also to obtain substantial government aid. What the  cost will be we are not able to say, but  light-railways have been built in Ireland for about ������100 ($500.) a mile.  The route is not particularly difficult,  not more so than the Arrowhead  branch, and some estimate of the total  cost might be obtained from the expenditure on that road.. Let us. then,  all work for this object. If local men  could see their wav to take a hand in  this company that is applying for a  charter, or to form one. among thein-  s :lves it would be a great incentive  towards keeping down the freight  rates. The government appropriation  for clearing the channel should still be  demanded, as the river route would  always be. an alternative in case the  railwaycompany should "put on the  A LAND OF WONDEROUS WEALTH  THE   BIG   BEND   AS    SEEN    BY  PRACTICAL MINING  MEN  screw.  AS OTHERS  SEE US.  " Vernon News: "We have received  the first issue of a new semi-weekly  paper published at Revelstoke by  Jolinsi-n and Pettipiece. It presents  a creditable appearance ! and fairly  bristles with local news. The Herald announces' that it has no string  on il. and is, in every sense of the  word, an independent paper. We  | wish it every manner of success.-  The Richest and Most E���������tcnsive Auriferous District in West Kootenay���������  An Interesting Account of the Mining  - Camps of the Big Bend and lllecillewaet Districts by "Observer" in the B.  C. Mining Record���������Revelstoke's Immediate Importance as a Centre Almost Assured.   -  The Big Bend mineral region is beyond question the richest and most  extensive auriferous district in the  now famous West Kootenay district.  Its auriferous gravels have already  turned out large quantities of gold  and, under effiei'Mit hydraulic working, when cheaper communication is  secured the output will reach into the  millions.  ���������Minmg men of known ability and  ripe practical experience who have  tested the gravels and given them the  most careful examination are unanimous in voicing their appreciation of  of its wondrous wealth. But mining  operations are destined to take a  wider range in the immediate future.  Quartz prospecting has shown beyond  question the presence of enormous ore  deposits over a large, area of country,  extending between fifty and sixty  miles in length by fifteen miles wide.  There are practically two mineral belts  traversing the Big Bend district from  southeast to northwest, the most  westerly one being auriferous in its  character. The easterly one is practically a continuation nf the argentiferous "ledges that traverse the Lardeau,  Fish Creek and lllecillewaet mining  divisions. Goldstream and its. tributaries will soon become the scene of extensive, hydraulic operations; Chicago.  Kansas City and St. Louis capitalists  having secured a large number of  promising locations, are preparing  for 'extensive, development. The  quartz ledges in the immediate vicinity are being"secured by syndicates  with ample means, and a "mining camp  will no doubt be created that will help  to swell to large amounts the gold output of tho district.  The.Waverly. Tangein and Montague group of claims are located near  the Summit, or watershed, between  tho North Fork of the lllecillewaet  and Downie Creek. There, are seventeen claims in this group. The ore  occurs in calciteorstratified limestone,  ���������X formation- -;characteristic-" of the  Kootenay zone' or -silver, belt of the  Selkirk range. The average returns  from seven samples of oro taken from  this group gave a return of 201 ounces  of silver per ton, with a high percentage of copper and lead, besides carrying gold in 'appreciable quantities.  The width of the ore deposit or veinstone, as determined by it crosscut  in the north opening on tho waverly  claims, is approximately 40 feet.  There are 0 feet on the hanging wall  of���������dean���������shipping���������ore.���������then-occurs-  anothor 0 feet of ochre or oxidized  giiugueo that, with concentration,  "would make it valuable for shipping.  The centre of the crosscut exposes  concentrating quartz, arid last, but  not least, li feet of high grads ore is  deposited on the foot Wall. The  Waverly, for the amount of work  done, has few rivals "even in the far-  famed West Kootenay district. It is  safe to iay that the aforesaid group  of claims will take high rank among  dividend paying properties.  ��������� Keystone Mountain is noted for  ledges of great width, some of them  being heavily capped with iron. The  ore occurs chiefly between contracts  of massive limestone arid mctamorphic  slates. The character: of tho ore is  arsenical iron, sulphids and wavey  galena. Thenty-three locations have  been made on this mountain, but the  amount of development has not been  large owing chiefly to the recent discovery of the camp. Claimholderi:  are enthusiastic "and predict a large  output of ore in the immediate future.  The camp is in close proximity to^tlie  Columbia River.  Carnes Creek mineral claims are  showing up considerable ore as development proceeds. The ore and formation- is of a similar character to Keystone Mountain and the.day is not far  distant when Carnes Creek will make  a reputation for itself.  Last but not least  we will  refer to  the lllecillewaet mining camp which  is practically a portion of the Big Bend  district.   Iliccillewaet has  many promising   claims,    among  , others ������the  Maple Leaf, Red   Fox, Jumbo,  Dnne-  gan, Sanquair and Roundhill claims.  The character of the ore is   argentiferous ;galena occurring in   a  stratified  limestone1 formation. Tlie Lanark Mining Company, are erecting a concentrator on the -railway track which is  to be conneeted,\vith the mine  by an  aerial tramway.   , The completion of  the    tramway , and concentrator will  swing  this ^property  into   the front'  rank of Kootenay's .best ore producers.  Many other prdpertieswill become ore  producers   on   a  Jarge/, Scale.      The  development:   of .i; thev-. .tnagniflcent  mineral resources of this, .vast region  has been  handicapped by.exhorbitant  freight' charges,  packing in   supplies  by pack animals is a primitive.method  of opening up a mining  camp, and is  necessarily expensive.    But evidence  is^nnt lacking indicating, a   growing  appreciation of the capabilities of the  district coupled by a desire to introduce a cheaper method of transporta^  tion, and we have no doubt that the  incoming year will overcome the drawbacks and obstacles that so far have  retarded the development of its great  natural resources.-   " .;'"'-.  LAURIE; THE NEW TOWNSITE.  BUILDING ^OPERATIONS ARE IN  FULL FORCE.  Situated Three Miles East of lllecillewaet.���������Is Fast Building Up.���������150  Men Employed.���������The Concentrator  Will Shortly Be In Operation.���������The  Horne-Payne Company Pushing Then-  Large Interests.  An hour and,fifteen minutes on: last  Wednesday's oast-bound express landed a Herald representative in Laurie.  1 new townsite about three miles east  of lllecillewaet, or !il miles east of  Revelstoke. After presenting our card  and receiving a kind reception from  tin* manager of the Horne-Payne Co..  Mr. Geo. A. Brooke, we were shewn  iround the premises by. one of the  genial employees, and. any questions  asked concerning the company's operation's were cheerfully answered.  A 'dam is being built about a quarter  of a mile east of the'centre of the  townsite. from which a flume will be  run to the concentrator, and when  properly generated will give them 250  horsL'-pmver.which the Company deem  will bepsuHi(,ient In run all their machinery, including the saw mill, and  the cost will only be trivial in comparison with steam.  Tho Company have bnilb eight  houses, five rooms in each, which they  furnish fren of rent to their employees  or those who board them.  Their portable saw mill is running  steadily, but fails to keep them supplied with square timber and lumber,  1 large amount being brought in from,  the Coast. y^^"  A large concentrator is being? built,  right at the mi.in-line track, and a  bucket cable, over a milo long is being  laid to their mines, several thousand  feet up the mountain side, in a northerly direction. At this writing the  concentrator is scarcely near enough  completion to give any detailed particulars.  Tho finishing touches are being put  011 the Company's large store building;  counters, shelves, private offices and  the painting being almost completed.  Here the Company intend putting in  a large stock of merchandise, such as  is found in every well regulated general store.  Tho C.P.R. are also building a neat  little station, and we understand an  agent will be put in charge, the importance of Laurie demaiidiiVg.it.  A post office and express office is an  absolute necessity at Laurie, and we  trust' it will soon lie supplied with the  both.  The day being very wet and disagreeable "we did not venture up to the  mines, but we were told by Mr. Brooke  that about 50 men were hard- at work  developing and preparing them for an  output as soon as' the concentrator is  completed. The mines rim in silver  and load and the assays run very rich,  so that the in vestment is a sure thing,  if only properly "'managed, which is a  most essential ihing in any enterprise.

A BOON TO REVELSTOKE.  The Mining Record Gives the Lardeau,  Trout Lake, lllecillewaet and the  Big  Bend Districts a Send-off in its Holiday  Number.���������Photos, Taken in the Ground  Hog Basin, Published.  >  In its recent Holiday Number, The  B.C. Mining Record gives a very good  account of the tributary points to this  town, and; among other things John  D.   Sibbald,   writing   of   Revelstoke,  says: '    '".  "No doubt you are aware that.: Revelstoke holds a very enviable position  as a distributing  centre to this great  mining country, being  on  the main  line of the C.P.R.. having the lllecillewaet mines only 28 miles off, the Big  Bend country to the north  containing  placer and quartz ledge's ad lib.

Then  again, there are the Jordan Pass claims  with large bodies of galenls^^fwjng  silver, about 15 miles   west   of  Revel-1  stoke.   To the south we have Lardeau.  with its hundreds of locations, several  of which are shipping ore.  Then there  are the Sable Creek mines, gold and  copper, Boyd ('reek mines, lead, silver  and copper.   Notable atiiong these are  the Glengary Group.f rbm which assays  have   beenlhad   ranging   from 38 oz  silver up to as. high as 1,040 oz.   Revelstoke is the natural supply point for  all this vast coiintry, and will no doubt  take its place as 6uch within the  next  I year."

The proposer of the address in reply  to Lhe speech from the throne iu the  House of Commons will be Viscount  Folkestone, and the seconder will be  Albert Lyttleton. In the House of  Lords Marquis Butte will move tho  address, which will be seconded by  Lord fvenyon.  A stormy session is expected, in  which the fortunes of the Government  are in doubt in spite, of the Conservative majority of 150. The questions  upon which the strength of the Government will be most severely tested  are those of education and the recently  alleged financial injustice to Jieland.  In votes to be taken upon these questions followers of the Government of  the day are split up and divided in  every direction���������so much so that the.  Government whips are anticipating  Ihe hardest session of recent years.  The Irish question has not yet been  raised in the Commons in its present  shape. In the Education question the  Government is bound by specilic  pledges.      -' ���������  HOME   ELECTRICITY.  ALL YOU HAVE JO DO IN THIS HOUSE  IS press' THE BUTTON.

Nervous Dyspepsia is tho real  trouble with " so many people who  imagine they have nervous prostration, and ascribe their trouble to  every form of nervous weakness  except the right one, which ' is the  stomach..  Thi3 is largely duo to the fact  that in Nervous Dyspesia there is  no pain in stomach and in fact  there is seldom much if any complaint about tho digestion. Therefore the stomach-is the last thing  thought of, and people go on for  years , taking nerve tonics, compound.blood medicines, tonics and  sarsaparilla, when the best tonic in  the world, tho only true blood purifier, is well digested food." All  nervously nlllicted persons should  remember that perfect digestion is  the only foundation for perfect.  health. The food we gat makes all  tho blood we have, which in turn  feeds every nerve, muscle and  tissue in the body.  Many nervous dyspeptics am  thus surprised after regularly using  Simmon's Iw Is  that when their digestion becomes  better their nerves do also, but  there is no occasion for surprise, a  sound digestion makes sound nerves  and strong muscles and' nature  recognizes uo other euro for ���������  nervous debility except that ��������� which  follows a good appetite c'and  wholesome food well digested.

AND    GOLDEN  BRITISH COLUMBIA  'The Most Beautiful Town" He Has  Ever Seen���������Future of Cattle Ranching���������Observations on Mining in the  Kootenay"  Will British Columbia rival South  Africa and West Australia as .a gold  producing country? Theie is reason  to believe that it will, or we should  should hardly hear ol syndicates being  formed for "its development and of  experts and others busying themselves  in the preliminaries of prospecting  work. Americans have been in the  Held for a considerable period, and until there is better railway communication the efforts of ourowncountrymen  to open up the land can hardly fail to  be seriously impeded, .and even to a  certain extent, thwarted.  A recent visitor to the gold fields of  the future is Mr. A. Drucker, M. P.,  who has returned to London in time  to correct the proofs of his important  work, "The Involution of Aryan"  (founded on the late Professor Jher-  ing's "Vorgeschichtederlndauiropajr")  which will shortly be issued by Messrs.  Swau Sonnenschieu & Co. In .a conversation with a representative of the  St. Jamc's'Budget Mr. Druckei gave  some of his impressions of British  Columbia, .and these will bo read with  exceptional interest just now.  "I left London," said Mr. Drucker,  "earlv in September, proceeding first  to Kew York, thence to Montreal  and on bv the Canadian Pacific Railway to Calgary, one of the largest  cattle ranching districts in' the world.  Calgarv is real lv one of the most beautiful. I might sav the most beautiful���������  small towns I have ever seen, and quite  ���������different, from all other western towns.  It is built of stone and dates from the  time of the great cattle ranching boom,  There are "line stieets. capital shops,  a well appointed club, and a magnificent stote belonging to the Hudson's  Bay Companj. It is impossible to pi e-  dict the extension of this Calgary  ���������cattle ranching trade when mining  "has developed, as it is bound to do  us soon as there is a railway, and that  time cannot be far oil". If you ask my  reason for venturing on this ' prediction, I answer that when there are  travellinc facilities all the mining  ���������camps will be supplied from and by  "Calgary. . -  "Fiom Calgarv I went over the  'Rockies' by the Canadian Pacific line  to Vancouver, whence I crossed to  Victoria, the Capital of British Columbia. Of Vancouver Island I saw. unfortunately, scarcely anything, owing  to the fog, which could have given  points even to a 'London particular.'  You are probablv aware that much of  the coal used is "obtained from Vancouver Island, the output last year being not far short of a million tons. As  von will see from the last report of the  "British Columbia Board of Trade,  which you have on your table, there  are enormous coal fields in the now  well known Crow's Nest Pass, which  are very important as forming the  main source of supply for the purposes  of smelting in the famous Kootenay  district, which has been so much  written about in the Times during the  present vear: indeed, British Columbia  should heartily thank the leading  journal for directing general attention  to that rich dit-lriet. There is official  authority for the statement that this  coal is peculiaily suited for mining  purposes, anil the construction of the  proposed British Columbia Southern  Railway would open up these coal  Ileitis and put them in communication  with the Kootenay smelters. At present the coke iweil by the smelters is  all imported from the United States.  "I wont buck from Vancouver to  Sicamous. the junction for Vernon, to  which the Agent Geueral for British  Columbia in London gave his name;  and at Vernon 1 look steamer to Pen-  ticton, which has at least one characteristic���������namely, the dustiest road in  Christendom, leading to Rossland.  which has become the centre of the  Kootenay mining industry. In the  district between i'encicton and Boundary Creek I saw gold mines some of  the ores being cspeciallyrich in copper.  In moat of the mines, including those  which do not contain much gold, there  are nearly alwaysKiilIieientcopperand  other metals to pay the expense of  working.  "To give you an idea of the rapid  growth of towns in British Columbia  I may site Greenwood City. In March  there was not a houso to be seen: but  when I was therein September-October there were three large hotels and  all the indications of a considerable  town. Of course there was a newspaper, and a very smart one too���������the  boundary Creek Times,  "What a magnificent future British  Columbia hail What with the mining  industry, and the salmon and sturgeon  fishing, the outlook is indeed splendid.  Speaking of sturgeon reminds me to  mention to you that I was told that  British Columbia will soon be producing more delicious caviare than Russia  itself! Then there is the lumber industry the importance of winch must  not oe underated, for the supply is inexhaustible; while iu respect of fruit  farming and agricultural pursuits generally the country is unique. It may  interest readers of the St. James's  Budget to know (hat Lord Aberdeen  has a ranch near Vernon, on which he  has started hop growing; and that  there is a big brewery at Vancouver,  and another at Calgary. No doubt  the example set by that far seeing  'nobleman will be pretty generally followed ere long.  . "Ofcourse you will hardly want me  to say iitivtliihg about so well known  an industry as the seal fishing; nor  need I dwell on the value of the pig  iron. What is wanted���������and this I cannot lay too much stress upon���������is that  much talked;of railway through the  Crow's Nest. Pass to connect the Canadian Pacific Railway with Nelson,  Rossland, and other places.' This  vitally important matter is now nuclei consideration by the D.imin ion  Parliamentvaiul is is hoped that a decision will soon.be taken upon , it. . At  present, if'you would get to' the  British Columbian, mining districts  with comparative ease, you must go  through the United Slates: anil'that  will answer the'question you put to  mo just now as to the amount of  American capital invested in that part  of the world. Until a very recent period only American capital has been  called into requisition to develop tho  mining industry generally.  "Kootenay is, as you have read in  Times, the Financial"News and other-  papers, the most prolific gold  produc  ing portion of Birtish Columbia, the  Trail district being credited as likely to  prove one of the most important producers of the yellow metal in till the  world. Tho'Lo Hoi and tho War  Eagle mines are both immenselj rich.  Th'ev onlv began to develop the former 111 December. 1S0O, yet in 1S01 the  vielil was (i.OOO tons of ore. and the  present output is, 1 believe, 100 tons a  (lay, with an average value of ������S per  ton. Fabulous sums have been offered for the Le Hoi mine, and every now  and again you hear that it has been  sold. As "regards the War Eagle,  they began shipping ore regularly  onlv in January ISOo, and up to July 1,  JS'Jfj. the mine "had paid in" dividends  8157,500. as against the LeRoi's $175,-  000. In the Trail district (Kootenay)  the average yield of gold is 1"07 oz. per  ton; and in this district only are there  aiiv smelters.  "At Spokane, the capital of IheState  of Washington, the railway runs to  Nelson and Robson. and at Spokane  you find the offices of all the companies  ���������a proof of the employment of American capital iu British Columbia. It  takes vou four days to get from New  York to Spokano.'and it is a day's run  from Spokane to Nelson .and Robson.  "As to the physiognomy of the  country, it is perfectly beautiful, and  the mountain scenery is charming.  "Our party camped out for more than  a week for the purpose of shooting big  game in the Cariboo mountains, the  locality in which Sir Peter Walker  shotfeur "grizzlies' last year. Although  wo' had tents, it was a rather rough  life, as you can easily imagine. Our  invariable fare was bacon and beans;  and although there are worse things  wherewith to sustain exhausted  nature, and although there is a certain amount of excitement about it all.  I don't mind telling you that I prefer  the ctiisine of tho Savoy. We rode  Indian horses���������wretched animals, yet  picking their way through roadless  and even pathless tracts wichadexter-  ity and instinct which you would look  for in uuii in animals of a better class.  There were with us three halfhreeds���������  one was the hunter for the party, another the cook and another the packer  The greatest trouble we had en route  was caused by the fallen timber, the  result of the forest fires. This made  the going perfectly awful. Coining  back the travelling was far better because it was all down hill. To reach  our destination from Veinon took us  four days, the return journey we did  in one clay. Next year I hope to go  out again", for E greatly liked the whole  country. Had 'our Canadian friends  a littlemore energy and 'go' in their  composition there would be less fear  of the good things of British Columbia  falling* into the minds of our enterprising Amoricon Cousins. This, however is a subject upon which the "least  said the soonest mended'."  It is reported that Dr. J. K. Barr.att,  inspector of inland revenue, will be  transferred to the .Kingston district,  and that the police inspector at' Kingston will succeed the doctor at Winnipeg.
