Kootenay Mail: "The first number  of the Revelstoke Herald appeared  lust Monday. It reflects great credit  on,the publishers, Messrs. Johnson &  Pctlipiece, and it is hoped their enterprise in publishing a semi-weekly  paper will be suitably rewarded. It  announces itself free and independent  and will no doubt join the present  papers of Kootenay in a strong protest against .monopolies and charter  speculators, and all such. The Herald will after this week rome out on  Wednesdays and Saturdays."  Golden Bra: "The first number of  the Revelstoke Herald is to hand  and presents n, bright and newsy appearance. The Herald is a senii-  weekly devoted totbe mining interests  of Revelstoke;, Trout Lake, Albert  Canyon and Jordan Pass districts." '  New Westminster Columbian:  "Revelstoke lias a new and creditable appearing paper, the Herald, a  fourpuge, six column semi-weekly,  published in the interests of Revelstoke, Lardeau.'Big Bend, Trout Lake,  lllecillewaet, Albert Canyon, and Jordan Pass districts. The publishers  and proprietors are Johnson & Petti-  piece."  Inland Sentinel: "The Herald is  the name of Revelstoke's new semi-  weekly paper. It is bright four page  paper devoted to the mining interests  of the districts tributary to Revelstoke. Crowded as the field already  is newspapers spring up in all directions with a frequency' that is appalling���������to those who are trying to make  theirs pay." ^^^^^  Fire in Philadelphia.  Philadelphia, Jan. 27.���������The greatest lire in years occurred here yesterday destroying thirty buildings in and  facing the block bounded by Thirtieth  Junior. Market and Filbert streets.  The loss is estimated at two million  dollars.  Mr. arid Mrs. Gladstone Visiting.  London,   Jan.   27���������Mr.   arid'   Mrs.  Gladstone  left  Hawarden   today for  Hiviera,  FREIGHT RATES.  Tho Revelstoke Board of Trade intends to take up the matter of C. P. R.  freight rates and never drop it until  concessions are granted. It is a matter  of surprise to everyone who comes to  reside at Revelstoke that a carload  of goods from the east consigned to  this town should be charged more  than a carload consigned to Vancouver  ���������370 miles further west. If Revelstoke  and Vancouver were placed on an  equality in the matter of freight rates  from eastern supply points there  would not be so much cause for complaint; but the fact is that carload lots  coming to Revelstoke have to pay  the rate to Vancouver and the local  rate from Vancouver to ; Revelstoke,  called the backwardation rate. This  local rate, we helieye., is 07 cents per  100 lbs., so that on a consignment of  20 tons Revelstoke merchants have to  pay $208 more than Vancouver merchants, or S13.40 more per ton. - This  is most"unjust, not,only to Revelstoke.  but' to all the interior . towns thus  discriminated against, and the wonder  is that those towns have not combined  and sought relief through their parliamentary representative at Ottawa  from such unfair working of the Railway Act, i.e., if it be in the power of  the Federal Government to grant such  relief.  It is preposterous that a car which  goes 370 miles ' further should be  charged S2GS less than a car dropped  oil here. The expense of shunting  would certainly not amount to more  than a couple of dollars at tho most,  as all tho trains stop here for water,  aiid the yard engine might, just as  well be moving a few cars as burning  away fuel idling on a side track. The  fact of Vancouver being a competitive  point, and Revelstoke not, does not do  away with the injustice, but makes it  all the more a case where the powers  of tho Government should be called in.  because it is hardly likely that Revelstoke will ever become a competitive  point; and if the excuse is to '"hold  good that the C.P.R. can only reduce  rates at competitive points, the discrimination will continue against noncompetitive points ad infinitum.  If the Board of Trade should be successful in obtaining Vancouver rates  for Revelstoke, are the Revelstoke  merchants going to givo their customers the benefit of the reduction,  or will they still keep up the present  prices and pocket the additional  profit? We ask this question because many people who are not merchants or^shippers of freight take  little'interest in the'matter. They  say that a reduced rate would not  benefit the town very much, but would  only bring a greater profit to the  merchants. This we do not believe.  It is to the merchants' benefit to  lower the price of goods to a figure  consistent with a fair profit, so that  the town might attain to the reputation of being a reasonable place to live  in���������which it hardly enjoys at present  We wish to be just to all in this question, and if the reduction (when it  conies) is not to benefit the town at  large, we do not see the necessity of  anyone outside the class to be benefitted getting :i headache about the  matter.

NEW COURT HOUSE AND JAIL.  Plans and Specifications Being Prepared  j ,by Local Architects For The Proposed  New Court House and  Jail. ���������A Much  Needed Project.  C. B. McLean, architect, bus just  completed plans and specifications for  the proposed new court, house and jail  in Revelstoke. Other local contractors  are also estimating on the cost and  also drawing plans; all of which are to  he laid before the next session of the  Provincial legislature with a view to  giving the local members some idea of  the cost, etc. The "long felt want" of  a proper court house and jail in this  town must be fully cognizant to all  concerned. The location, we understand, is to be just on the brow of the  bench,, almost opposite the Cowan  Holteu Downs Co. brewery and The  Herald's idea is that this would be  an excellent and appropriate location.  The Provincial government take' considerable money out of this town every  year in tuxes, licences, etc., and, so  far, apparently, but a small portion of  it is expended here. Let us hope the  proper authorities will see that a suitable court house, government office  and jail soon adorns our fast growing  and progressive town.  The Victoria Skating Rink.  .' L'ist night the proprietors of the  Victoria, skating rink opened the rink  to the public for the first time this  season, and over a hundred of our  citizens took advantage of the opportunity of enjoying a skate on the  excellent ice provided. The Revelstoke brass 'band was present and  rendered some choice selections at intervals during the evening, which was  greatly appreciated by the skitters and  spectators. We trust that the efforts  of the proprietors, Messrs. Cowan &  Horn, in furnishing the citizens of  Revelstoke with this means of healthy  giving enjoyment during the long  winter' evutiiug,- may-,be thoroughly  appreciated.  HOTEL ARRIVALS.  THE RUSH IN THE SPRING  A Daily Service Being Inaugurated   By  The C. P. R. From Revelstoke To AH  Down   River   Points. ��������� Four    More  Locomotives Being Shipped.  The new C.P.R. hotel here is to he enlarged upon at'an early date to accommodate the increased travel which is  anticipated for next season. The company also intend establishing a daily  service between hero and all down  river points. This looks as though  the C.P.R. were not depending much  on getting control of the much-talked  of Crow's Nest Pass railway. Canadians "look before they leap," but.  the're more than " jumpin' " after  Kootenay business now,��������� and it was  near time too.  It is also learned that among the  changes to be made in the navigation  of the Columbia under the new management will be the establishment of  a daily boat service between Robson  and Arrowhead. With this in view a  steamer larger than the Nakusp is  being built tit Nakusp, on the Upper  Arrow lake, and will be ready for service in the spring.  As is well known the C.P.R. now  has a branch service running from  Revelstoke down to Arrowhead, at  the north end of tho Upper Arrow  lake. Two fine steamers will run between Arrowhead and Robson eve'"y  24 hours���������one going up, the other  coming down���������Sunday included; At  Robson connection will be made with  the standard gunge railroad about to  be built from Trail to that point by F.  Aug. Heinze, and at Trail connection  will be made with the narrow guage  railway running to Rossland. It is  altogether probable that Mr. Ileiiize  will standardize, the narrow guage so  that trains can run right through  from Robson to Trail.

And before the spring trade opens up  thoroughly the company will have the  best transportation facilities in  Kootenay. [-These improvements, especially between here and Robson,  will tend to make Revelstoke even a  more-important, centre _than_ever,_as.  nearly .ill the immense traffic between  the east and Kootenay will now be  shipped via Revelstoke, rather than  over American lines, as heretofore.  Competition is the life of trade; and  we like to see both.  REVELSTOKE   IN ASHES  -GOODTIMES-A-COMING.  Will Be a Heading Some of These Days  Unless  We   Secure  Better Fire Protection.���������Let Us Urge The Provincial  Government To Help Protect us.  What protection have we in  Revelstoke   against  fire?   If   the  Victoria  hotel blaze last  Saturday   night   had  got ten minutes more  headway, what  means   were   there  to   extinguish it?  These are questions which should  be  answered in  the affirmative, and we  trust   that  a  chemical   engine, hose,  reels, ladders, etc.. will be   nearer  at  hand in the next instance.   The water  works  system   provides   an  excellent  protection, were   tho   hydrants    kept  uncovered of snow and made access-  able at any  time.   The  hose, etc., for  the hydrants should be here and  kept  in the fire hall.   The   snow should  be  shovelled away to the fire hall doors,  and above all, a propur lire alarm   bell  should   be    provided,     The    present  alarm   may   be  all  right  on   a clear  summers day. but on a  wintry night,  such as last   Saturday, it  is  comparatively useless.   We hope some   of  our  live citizens  will take  this matter up  and sec that  Revelstoke   is   properly  gnarded against fire.  What would be the matter with the  Provincial government providing for  us? They extract a large amount of  money from this district every year,  and a portion of it spent in giving us  a safe fire protection would be a good  investment. If the Provincial government have a right to tax this town's  property, they too have a right to  protect it. Revelstoke not being in  corporated we must look partly to the  local government for relief, and we  feel confident, that among other mon  ies which should be expended in giving  Revelstoke its rights, a portion will be  appropriated towards giving us safe  and proper fire protection.

Itbegau  *o/see visions of fat Government  firinting contracts fading away,  t'fears that the Globe's.advocacy  of Mr. Green way's plau implies  the 'Dominion Government's  '��������� favourable consideration. The  . .Globe's utterances, it has observed,  /nre generally in lino with the acts  ' and intentions of the Government.  Now what is the Leader's chief  argument against tho change?  It is practically: "Wo the people  of the Territories" don't want it.  ���������'We the people of the Territories,"  according to the editorial "we" ot  the-Leader, want one Provincial  Government for the whole  country, with Regina as its'head-  quarters. This presumptuous  claim ' the Leader bases on the  pronouncement of the Legislative  Assembly, at its last session. If  the. Western members of the  Assembly are in line with the  Leader's chum. Tub Herald for  one, does not hesitate to say that  they don't faithfully represent  their constituents. The assertion  cannot be successfully challenged  that the majority of the public  of Alberta and the ranching portion of West Assiniboia would  prefer either a separate provincial  establishment or union with  British Columbia, to being governed from Regina. With the  Xieader's remark that "not half a  ���������dozen autonomy faddists can today be found even in Calgary''  we can cheerfully agree. Of  "faddists" there are none, but  The Leader man would probably  have his eyes opened, if he ever  came to Calgary, the number of  intelligent and enlightened home  tnlers he would find.    The tact is   ���������arid���������it-ennnot���������l.)e-denied-^--tliat"  the whole North West under one  government would be too large  and Manitoba too .small.  The Winnipeg correspondence  of the; Province, Victoria, B.C.,  contains the following:  "The agitatiou in the Territories  for Provincial autonomy may produce an unexpected result. The  Globe pronounces against multiplication of provincial governments. Mr. Green way takes the  demand for provincial government and the condemnation of too  much legislative machinery and  ���������suggests a compromise. Give the  Territories provincial goverment  by adding to Manitoba's western  boundary. The scheme has much  to commend it and the Globe is  evidently ready to support Mr.  Greenway's suggestion. Concentrated aims would probably be  be more successful in Ottawa than  the petty claims ot several small  provinces."  The following excellent article  is from the Edmonton Bulletin :  "'A number of both Western and  E.istern papers are dismissing a  possible westerly extension of the  2Jrovince of Manitoba. There  wems to be a good deal to be said  in favour of the idea. The prairie  division of Canada extending from  the Lake of the Woods to the  Rocky 3Ionntains is too large to  be formed into only one.province:  ,nnd yet the smaller the number of  provinces the greater the economy  m government. Although there  i->. too much territory for one pro-  vine-" Lhere may not be more than  ������;_ough for two. As a matter of  fact the whole area has been  under two local legislatures for  the past twenty years, and as far  as can be seen there is no particular necessity for a greater number.  At the same time the Western or  Territorial division is so very  much larger than the eastern or  provincial division, if a permanent  arrangement is to be made noth-  lug would be more natural than  that the# size of the two permanent divisions should be somewhat  similar. Th1* first idea of restricting Manitoba to an area 100 miles  square was abandoned many  years age and her boundaries extended westward. There is therefore nothing new in tho idea of  their being extended still further  west.   There is practically no dif-  published   iu the Montreal  Both will be illustrated.  Star.  The mining boom is helping  everybody���������even the politicians.  Premier Hardy, of Ontario,  recogni/.es that "there is a tide in  tho affairs of men" and has decided  that the right time to take it is in  June. "Good times" is the best  possible argument to carry 'an  election and if Ontario's mining  boom holds out Mr. Hardy will  probably have no diflieulty in  carrying his.  The Winnipeg Commercial recently hail an article strongly  advising farmers not to go out of  hog raising. While wheat is dear  now there is no guarantee that it  ;.\yi!l_.remain so, and taking one  tiling with another there aro few  brauches of farming, especially in  the far West where freights  swallow up profits, that are safer  and more remunerative than converting cheap grain into good  meat.  THE TREATY  Of  Arbitration  its   Merits-  of   Senate  Relations  Will. be Considered on  -Such is the Disposition  Committee   on   Foreign  Washington.

ISRAEL GETS WARM  ferenci) of interests betwoen tho  western part of Manitoba anil the  eastern part of the Territories  Tndeetltlioy are identical in every-  tiling except in local legislation.  There is no natural division or  distinction of any |kintl between  Manitoba anil tho adjoining portion of the Territories as there is  between tlie western and eastern  portions, of the Territories. Winnipeg is the natural commercial  capital , of all the wheat  growing area of the plains as fat-  west as Moose Jaw; The fertile  eastern and western parts of the  Territories are separated from  each other by the vast semi arid  grazing region, chiefly covered by  tho two local electoral districts of  Medicine lint and Battlel'ord.  This grazing area differs entirely  in  interests   from     the    eastern  wheat   growing area;   and the far  west   mixed   farming   country of  Northern Alberta, while it approximates   more  closely   to   the  conditions of  Manitoba  is so   far  detached  from it, and having  its  commercial      interests      tending  westward  rather than   eastward,  its   local alTaits can   no doubt   be  handled     to    better     advantage  under     a    separate  o legislature.  There is no good reason at present  npparent why the local control of  Central Canada should  be divided  between moro than two legislatures.    If there, are to be only two  their control should be divided as  evenly and as much according to  natural conditions as possible.  ���������This can be done by drawing the  dividing line due north and south  some distance west of Moose Jaw,  which would   give    the    eastern  agricultural  regions to Manitoba  and the western grazing and agricultural area to the new province  to    be    created.     Sometime the  development - of the   vast   north  country   might   call   for   further  sub-divisions   but for the present  ���������and   for all time as far as   East  and   West are   concerned��������� these  would be enough."  The Macleod Gazette  announces  its conversion to  The Heuald'h  policy in an article concluding as  follows:  "The    Globe     recognizes     the'  difficulty     of     interfering    with  existing institutions and anticipating  the  near approach of the  necessity for provincial institutions in the Territories, sounds  a warning against any unnecessary multiplication of provincial legislatures.   Its suggestion  with regard to the North West is  that  the   boundaiy of   Manitoba  should be extended'westwarrl.   To  include   the   whole    area   of   the  Territories  in    this   arrangement  would      make      Manitoba      too  unwieldy.   If that proposal meets  with the approval of the people of  the Territories, the question to be  decided     would     be,     how      far  westward should  the boundary of  Manitoba   bu   moved,   and    next  what  should   be   done   with   the  remainder.    Obviously one of two  things only could happen.    _ither  it would be erected into a separate  province, or be  taken into British  Columbia.  "These      are ,, practically     the  questions  whicli   are   now   being  discussed.

LAURIER AND THE BISHOPS  There   Will   Be    Exciting   Times   In  Quebec���������The Globe Reads a Lecture  Some of the Globe's recent articles  on church interference, in politics recall the sturdy spirit of the late George  Brown. One of its articles last week  accuses the Quebec Bishops of breaking the spirit of the law, of menacing  free institutions, and of being advocates of the methods of Spain, and  concludes by saying:  "The announcement that a mande-  menL condemning the settlement; of  the Manitoba school question is to he  read in Quebec next Sunday raises all  those questions, and raises also the  question of the right of the Quebec  Bishops to interfere in tho concerns of  a-Province thousands of miles away.  -No. privilege of the Catholic Church  ;orof the Catholic people in Quebec is  affected in any way. The mandement  of the Quebec Bishops can be made  elfective only by bringing pressure to  bear upon the Parliameutand Government of Canada, who, in turn, are expected to devote their time and energy  to the task of forcing a separate school  system upon thej people of Manitoba.  We say t.hattbal demand will be  resisted, anil not only so, but if the  Bishops insist upon forcing the attention of the whole people of Canada  upon the special privileges of-their  Church they will have ' themselves to  blame for the injury that the Church  may sustain,"  "SUUT UP."  The Montreal Gazette interprets  what it ironically calls the conciliatory attitude of tho Liberal parly towards those who favour sepaiate  schools for Roman Catholics, thus:  Liberals���������We abolished your separate schools in Mauitoba.

Nervous Dyspepsia is the real  trouble with so many people who  imagine they have nervous pros---  tration, and ascribe their trouble to  every form of nervous weakness  except tho right one, which is the  stomach.  This is largely duo to the fact  that in Nervous Dyspasia there is  no pain in stomach and in fact  there.is seldom much if any complaint about the 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  tho world, the 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 eat makes all  the blood wo have, which in turn  feeds every ^nervo, muscle and  tissue in the body. .'  Many nervous dyspeptics .are  thus surprised after regularly using  Sinn's Kife'  that when their digestion becomes  better their nerves do also, but  there is no occasion for surprise, a  sound digestion makes sound nerves  arid' strong muscles and nature  recognizes no other cure for  nervous debility except that which  follows a good' appetite , and  wholesome food well digested.   .  Tonio3 and blood medicines  stimulate, we feel'better for a time  after having used them, but all  such unnatural stimulation must  ever be followed by corresponding  depr.ession.^_.2Srer_vous���������.Dyspepsia-  and Nervous Prostration are one  and the same disease, and they aie  curable in one and the same way  by the systematic, regular use of  SIMPSON'S" KIDNEY, PILLS  after meals, whereby nature is  assisted in thoroughly digesting  good food, thus creating an appetite   for more.  In Nervous Dyspepsia and nervous weakness of every kind, the  way to cure it is to eat plenty  of wholesome food and take  SIMPSON'S KIDNEY PILLS  as directed to digest, it and  nourisli the system until the weak  stomach can do it without  assistance.  In Nervous Dyspepsia Simpson's  Pills should be taken after meals  and the beneficial effects will ' soon  be manifested in increased appetite,  flesh and sound nerves, c The Pills  digest the food and increase the  flow of gastric juice and act  beneficially upon the walls and  nerves  of the stomach.

Two of the most iiitercsUng wil-  , nesses at the trial of Charcoal at Mauled wer'i Little Pine, a brother-in-law  of Charcoal, and Charles Holloway,  police interpreter.  Little Pine, examined, said: "I am  a brother of Pretty Wolverine, Charcoal's wife. On the night of October  12th Charcoal came to my camp and  said he was in trouble; he said he  killed Medicine Pipe Crane: he found  him scuffling with his wife and went  clown to the agency that night to kill  Wilson but did not see him; he came  back and shot McNeill through the  window. He was going to run away.  Did not see Charcoal again until  arrested."  Charles Holloway. examined, said:  "I am a police interpreter at Pi'ncher  Creek and went in pursuit of Charcoal  on the 10th of November with Sergeant Wilde, Constable Ambrose,  Many Tail Feathers, The Sword and  two other Indians. Constable Ambrose went south to warn the Kootenay police. After riding 20 miles we  saw Charcoal -100 yards ahead and  Sergeant Wilde gave orders to run no  chances, not lo go nearer than i>0  yards: to tell him to halt and that if  be didn't to shoot him. I and The  Sword gained on Charcoal and when  about 150 yards from him 1 called on  him to stop. He shouted back to come  on. I anil The Sword jumped olf our  horses: I snapped my sun twice, but it  would not go oil": The Sword fired with  his revolver and Tail Feathers also  fired. After riding about a mile and a  half our horses played out. Sergeant  Wilde rode past us and rode up within  six or eight feet from Charcoal. I then  saw Charcoal pull bis horse to the left  and pull his-gun'nut of his belt and  shoot at Sergeant Wilde, who fell back  on his horse but,-;did not fall to the  ground for some 20 feet. Charcoal  rode on. but looking round he paw-  Wilde in the act of falling. - He then  lode back, jumped olf his horse and  walking up to Wilde shot him again.  Ue took Wilde's gun and horse, and  started off: When he shot Wilde 1  saw Jc hn "Brat-ton ahou1", uO yards from  Wilde and Charcoal; I was about 150  yards away; Bratton offered his horse  to Tail Feathers, but the horse' would  not let him mount him:. Brntlon then  caught Charcoal's horse and T lil  Feathers mounted it and pursued  Charcoal. I remained, put tlie body  of Wilde sitting on a horse's back anil,  mounting behind it, brought the body  to the nearest house, seven miles  away. -1 identify the saddle in'court  as Wilde's saddle."'

Capitalists at the coast and in the  east are already making enquiries  alter mining properties in this vicinity  and many promising properties are  being quietly picked up with a view to  developing the same next year.

The Ibex is one of the rich silver  claims of Lhe Slocan district of West  Ivoolenay and acLual tests of its surface, ore yielded from SO to DO ounces  lo the ton. The mine is in a partially  developed state, and the construction  of less than three miles of a wagon  road will allow and enable the managers to hmd'ore to a shipping point  on the C. P. It. branch line, all of  which can be accomplished at a cost  of about $3000.  The Tbex has a directorate of good  men, and our Winnipeg townsman, Mr. Frederick Steele, of Steele it  Co.,is one of the promoters.  One special future of the Ibex is,  that its stock is being sold at par onlv,  namely^nc a share, Lhe capital stock  being 1,200,000 shin es of 25c each. At  present only 300,000 shares are being  offered, and-the proceeds of this the  directors believe will be sufficient to  carry on operations to a dividend paying point.  In the Ibex as in till mining ventures  there is the usual uncertainty mixed  up with big prospect of" profit.  There is no uncertainty, however,  about the character and intentions of  the promoters. '- *>  The nerchant's Hotel  lllecillewaet, B.C.
