PROTECTING THE  RIVER  As a consequence of the already  heavy snowfall this winter there is  considerable likelihood that a recurrence of the high water of last year,  and the consequent erosion of the river  bank, will be a feature of the coming  summer. As there yet remain nearly  three months of winter,' it is not too  much to expect that the entire snowfall may exceed even that which caused  the disastrous floods of 1891. Of course  the danger of such floods depends upon  the state of the weather. Should it  prove to be a cold spring and the snow  and ice on the glaciers and mountain  sides remain unmelted until the hot  summer sets in, then we may look for  exceptionally high water in June or  July and the carrying away of big  slices of the river bank above the railway bridge. If, on the other hand,  hot weather comes in April, as is  sometimes the case, the snow on the  lower levels will disappear, and the  river will fall again during the usually  cold month of May. It is only when  the hot weather continues long enough  to melt the snow and ice piled up in  the vast ravines and canyons of the  Selkirks that danger is to be apprehended.  Below the bridge the riprap work of  brush pinioned down with thick wire,  which was laid in 'the spring of 1805.  seems to b������ holding good, and was  very little affected by last year's flood,  which did so much damage in the  vicinity of Allen's brewery; but there  is, perhaps, a weak :spot close below  the bridge where the swirV'o'f 'the back  water will probably work behind,, the  .brush/:.and .so,.undermine, the sandy  bank all the; way down. But a little  labor, will' rectify that. It is above  the bridge that the trouble is now-to  fearpd. Last year several feet-of.-the  bank for long distances between' the  Big Eddy and the bridge went into  the river, and there is no doubt that  the erosion at that particular spot will  in future be greater than ever, because  the curve has become more, accentuated, and the currenf' finds a broaden7  target to strike against than ever  before. The formation of the channel,  too, is very favorable for t he erosion  of the northern bank, because the  water, after making the circuit of the  Big Eddy, shoots straight lor that side  of the river, striking the rather high  bank below the belt in a most  unsportsmanlike manner, eating  away the sandy formation below the  loamy soil, and toppling'over the big  trees that once made that neighborhood a delightful spot for a summer  afternoon's stroll. ' -  ';  But it is not   with   the  picturesque  aspect  of  the   case  that  we have to  deal, but  with  the dangerous side of  the   question   as   it affects the town.  Unless  prompt  measures   are  taken  before highWater sets in this spring,  there is a possibility of the   bank   being  eaten   away  as  far    in   as   Mr.  Hetherington's farmhouse; and of Mr.  Bourke's house and Mr. Allen's brewery both overhanging the water before  the summer is over; and not only this,  hut  also   the   underming   of the first  pier  of   the   C.P.R.   biidge and   the  emhankment. because should the bank  go as far as the brewery there is nothing to save the  washing  out  of  wagon    road    beneath    the     bridge  is run but a few feet from  the  river.  Should this road go and the water get  behind the protection of  brush below  the bridge, what is (to save the town  from the terrible experience of 1804?  ��������� These, then, are the dangers we have  to look forward to, but of course, the  weather  may  be  so propitious as, to  belie all prognostications of evil; but  it is well, to be prepared for the worst.  AVhat remedy have we' for delivering  the town from a possible catastrophe ?  First, the Board of Trade, or whatever  responsible body of citizens  we have,  should  lose   no  time   in  tracing the  .whereabouts of that appropriation for  this purpose said to have  been made,  or at least promised, by both the Dominion   and  Provincial   Governments.  Secondly, to   request  our representatives, both at Ottawa and Victoria,'to  impress   on   the   powers   that be the  necessity of "getting a move on," as  the urgency of the case will not stand  more than two or three months' shillyshallying    and     "discussioning."     If  anything  in   the  way of  protective  works is to be done this   year   it  will  BANK,   h'tve to be done inside of three months  ���������otherwise the deluge I  As the C.P.R. is now threatened, it  will most probably occur to the two  Governments to ask that corporation  to contribute something towards the  expenditure. This would be nothing  but just, and if the owner of Revelstoke townsite���������be he whom he may���������  were asked to "put up" a little to save  his properly from the greedy maw of  old Columbia, it would be equally just.  We do not attempt to say what form  the protective works should take. AVe  leave that to more competent heads.  Our duty ends with calling attention  to the fiict that the' bank above the  town needs protection, and needs it  badly.  AN" INTERESTING' INTERVIEW  Our M. P. P. on the Live Questions of  of the Day.  The Trail News of a recent date publishes an interesting interview with  Mr. J. M. Kellie, M.P.P.. a portion of  which we reproduce below:  Asked as to now measures to be submitted to the coming legislature, Mr.  Kellie said:  .!'I very much favor cutting' the  province into municipalities. A district like this should collect its own  taxes and meet its own burdens. The  present system was all right a few  5-ears ago, but there conies a time  when a people, as well as a country,  should set up for themselves. This  mining division has become so important as to entitle it to government  recognition, and it should have - a representative of its own. I would suggest the division of West Kootenay  into three counties.  " Under the present law, coal,  petroleum and mineral waters can  only be secured by acquirin g surface  rights to land, but I think the interests  and development ��������� of the. country  wqnld^jjejurthered to-a great extent  by bringing' them within the' provis-"  ions of the Mineral Act, which gives  them, to the locators.  "As to land grants to railroads. I  think the method should be changed,  and would much prefer to see the government give so much per mile as" a  bonus for those who are willing to  build, .and to retain in the road  stock to the amount of such bonus.  Thus, the government would be  assistiiig~new entcTrprises "an"d~lit_thV  same time have a valuable asset",'  which in time, would amply remunerate for the assistance given.  "Every place I go there is evidence  of rapid development and I'm quite  confident that the influx of people  the coming season will be without  precedent in any mining camp. Industries consequent upon tho working of mines- will rapidly enter  the Held, but let me assure you that  Canadian sentiment is too strong to  permit the establishment of smelters  right at our border. Our people  won't stand it. They don't object to  smelters at Tacoma and Everett and  places at a distance, but they will  most emphatically protest against  building up towns just across the  line at the expense of British Columbia. AA'e have the mineral wealth  and our people are entitled to its  benefits.  "In 1891." continued Mr. Kellie,  West Kootenay was divided from  East Kootenay, and prior to that  time the revenue and expenditure was  al! under the heading of the  Kootenay district. In the four years  ending June 30. 1895, AVest Kootenay  the ���������; contributed $253,000 to the revenue  of the provincial government while  ihe expenditures in the district, by  the government during that period,  was $321,000. It must be remembered  that this district should contribute  her share of the-cost of the general  government of the province as a  whole. Of course, it was unable to  do this, and tho difference between  the revenues land expenditures, together with its propoition of the interest on the debt, makes a deficit of  about $200,000 short of the actual  revenue. In other provinces, many  of the expenditures are borne by the  niunie:pai corporations and organized districts, while in Kootenay|jit is  all boine by the general government.  The revenues for the past fiscal year  ending June '00 were perhaps $100.  000 to $123,000, and the expenditures  probably equalled the revenue. For  the one year from ISO! to 1805 the expenditures were $110,000 while the  revenue was only $08,000. For the  current fiscal year" ending June 30,  1897 the salaries paid to school teachers  will amount to$223,000, and the pro  bability is that this item will  increase  at the rate of $50,000 per annum.  "Plainly, then, you will understand  that the reason why the government,  don't spend more money on improvements in these mining camps, is simply because it has not the means. The  whole interior of British Columbia  is practically a new country, and  while the government is anxious to  assist in opening it, there must be a  revenue from some quarter to meet  the expenditures:"  THE WHOLE WORLD OVER.

From Our Own Correspondent.  Malcolm Beaton and Andy Craig are  busy rawhiding from the Great North-  em to tho wagon road, and Ed. and  A. Hillman are busy with three four-  horse teams hauling it to the Landing;  They' brought in the first loads���������80  sacks���������Saturday last and wet it with  champagne at the Prospector's Exchange.  The cold weather of the last two  days has covered the N. E. Arm with  a good coat of clear ice.' Danuie Morrison made the first trip of tho season  on the ice from Arrowhead to Thomson's Landing today.  Messrs. Craig & Hillman have opened a new blacksmith's shop at the  Landing with J. Tobiu in charge.  A rich body of ore has heen struck  in the No. 3 tunnel of the Great Northern, which'" assays 430 ozs. silver and  $34. in gold. It is reported that a  large body of rich ore has been struck  in the shaft which is being sunk on  the Sunshine by the Horne-Payne Co.  It is also said that they have struck  solid ore in the hottom of a shaft that is  being sunk on the Broadview, and that  the ore contains large quantities of  grey .copper.'��������� No doubt this group will  "yet be'one of the Horne-Payne Co'������  besc mines.  It is reported that three 'or- four  bachelors at the Landing intend to  build in the spring, and soon after  become benedicts.  . Billy Johnson, of the Badshot, is  visiting at the prospector's Exchange  and takes daily walks for the benefit  of his health.  ���������Au-animaLsijpposed-to-be.a-iWolver-  ine has frequented Trout Lake City  for the last three months. It was  trapped the other day and turned out  to be a gigantic skunk.  It is said here that the boys of Trout  Lake have formed an Independent  Lodge of Good Templars; Bob McCord  is president and Billy Glenn vice. Bob  has issued the following edict, "Tho  first man that breaks the pledge will  be fined the drinks apiece." The lodge  is expected to last till tho end of the  present financial stringency.  Abe Kinkade and Billy Nutter are  still pegging away on their claim on  the north side of the Arm. They are  now in good concentrating ore. This  is likely to become a very valuable  mine in the near future.  Mr. AV. Henderson. D.L.S^, left the  Landing this morning to survey a  number of claims in the Trout Lake  district. '  Mr. Jas. Porter has commenced the  erection of .an addition to his residence  at Armstrong Lake. It is whispered  that a little dark-eyed maiden will  make her home there'in the spring.  Thomson's Landing, Jan. 25th.  MR. H. N. COURSIER  AT TRAIL.  In an interview, at Trail, with Mr.  Coursier, general merchant of this  place, the other day, the News says:  "In speaking of Beyelstoke, Mr.  Coursier stated that the C.P.R. was  about to bring its repair shops from  Donald to that place and that the move  had had quite an influence on the value  of real estate. The Dominion government had appropriated $12,500 for; the  improvement of the Columbia,'and the  Provincial government will be asked  to render similar assistance. It is  probable that the C.P.R. will put on a  boat to run up the river into the Big  Bend country.,;  "Several claims," Mr. Coursier said,  "are coming to the front, and the ease  with which the ore is worked, is in  great contrast with that of other  mines. The Orphan Boy, for instance,  has a shaft clown 59 feet and a tunnel  in 104 feet, and the whole work only  represents six weeks of labor. Revelstoke also has an excellent water  system, and the people enjoy good  mountain water and excellent fire  protection. A large brewery and  other improvements are noticeable  features of Revelstoke's progress."

JAN.   :X>,  JSII7  EXTEND MA NITOBA  PECULIAR METHODS  In tho course of tho Winnipeg  election trinl the lending counsel  for tliu petitioner spoke us follows:  "I may say, my Lord.*, that we  lmvo no evidence to oll'er sis to the  truth of tin; personal charges  against Mr. Mucdonald. Wu lnvve  not succeeded in gutting any  evidence to prove the truth of  these."  This tidmission of counsel furnishes it loud commentary on the  en-called "exposures" in AV'innipeg.  If tho charges brought against  Hugh John and Ins supporters  were true no condemnation could  be too strong, for tho notorious  bill of particulars in tlie case  assumed to reveal a mass of  political corruption among Winnipeg Conservatives that was  appalling. Due .nudging by the  siqual���������the imprisonment of the  inloi'iner .Jackson on a charge ol  swindling and the implied confession of counsel that charges hail  been nmde without a, tittle of  foundation���������tho impartial public  will draw conclusions far from  complimentary to the purists.  IIugh. John Macdonald, at rate,  comes out untainted.  Unprejudiced observers of the  controversy ry over the proposal co  extend Manitoba's Western  boundary can come to no other  conclusion than that the weight  of solid argument is on the side of  the affirmative. The newspapers  of K>iitern Ass'miboia itself are  divided on the matter. The whole  Western press (outside of the  Regina Leader, whose only feat-  is that the capital of tho Western  province might be taken to a more  suitable place than Regina) is a  unit in commending and approving  the proposal. Unprejudiced reports from Moosomin and other  i m porta nt centres in Assiniboia.are  to the effect than among the thinking portion of thepublicuuioii with  a province whoso interests are  identical would be vastly perfer-  able tn being tied to lhe Western  ranching country, whose interests  are different and whose people  hold ideas which are not in  sympathy with Assiniboia's. The  following moderate remarks of the  .Winnipeg Free Press are worth  noting:  ''And the wisest men believe  that the district in question  should not be divided up into  several provinces, with all the expense of legislatures and Governments for each. Canada is already  burdened with two much government,and it is not wisdom to increase the burden unnecessarily.  It is not necessary in this case, as  the district is virgin; it is all new,  ami may be carved or shaped,  precisely as the wisdou of the  Canadian people may suggest as  the most desirable..- They are not  restricted as they, were in the case  of all the other provinces except  Manitoba: with respect to them  the boundaries were already defined and Governments established, and they had to be accepted  as they were or not at all. Manitoba was the only exception  among the present provinces, and  itcame freshly made out of virgin  territory. But it was made too  small, as the wi������est heads now  acknowledge. If the remaitiing  virgin territory in tho North West  were to be cut up on the same  scale, we should have, not; two or  ���������"threerbut-ciKliC-oi'-tcu^adclitional-  proviuces. which would be a  stupendous blunder.  Anticipating the changes That  are to come, it has been -suggested  that Manitoba's Western boundary  should be extended to include a  portion of this large dislict that  await* division into provinces.  The Kree Press thinks this wouW  be wi-e, not in the intere~tj of  Manitoba, which no person not of  it is in the lea-c bound to take into  consideration, but in the intcre-t  of tho entire di.-ti'i'.'t concerned  .-Hid of the Dominion as a whole.  Solar as Manitoba alone is concerned, the Free Press does not  care two straws if not a single  inch of Assiniboia be attached to  it. AVhat the politicians desire ic  c.loes not know and does not care,  but the. territory at present  included within its bouudarie-  will never be the richer of a strip  of Assiniboia. broad or narrow.  But that is not the question as it  appears to the Free Pros-: it is on  no narrow lines of local advantage  that it considers tlie matter. In  the general public interest it is  desirable that there should be no  mure provisional division*-- than-  ate absolutely necessary. Tho  authorities have a virgin territory  ro deal with, and mnv therefore  avoid mi-takes. The Free, Press  believe- that the wise-t disposition  would be to attach a portion of  the territory to Manitoba, and to  form the remainder into erne  province. That would be a Mm pie  arrangement and it would involve  'Tim creation of only one extra  fi.'iviM'iiiiwnt and Legislature.

Candid Opinion of the New York Times  on the Recent Clerical Interferences  in Quebec  An echo of the middle ages comes to  us from the northern bolder. To  most of tho 1 eaders of the "Times" it  must be hard to believe that at lhe  close of the nineteenth centurv Roman Catholic Bishops have forbidden  Catholics to 'read, circulate, or otherwise encourage' a newspaper, 'under  pain of being deprived of the benefits  of the Church,' and have done this  because the newspaper has published  an article by a contributor upholding  the supremacy of the State and denying the right of the Church to dictate how they shall vote in such a  matter as the Manitoba school  cpiefttion.  In the I'nited States such an act by  two or three men, no matter what  might be their office or their spiritual  authority, would probablv be judged  by the courts to be a conspiracy in restraint of personal rights. What it.  may be in Canadian law we do not,  know, but if the publisher attacked  carries out his reported intention to  sue each of the Bishops for damages  we shall he greatly- surprised if he  does not win his suit. It, is hardly  possible that the law of Canada recognizes the existence within the range of  its nominal jurisdiction of an authority  entitled to violate principles that  obtain in every other part of the globe  where the English law prevails.  But the anachronism and anomaly  of the l'igal situation thus created  are not more ainazinc than the ineptitude of the Bishops. It is hardly possible, that in any other civilized country  the Church would undertake so :,o dictate the political course nf il.s members, and so t.n repress all discussion on  its course. Not that the. reasoning of  the Bishops is illogical, but the time  has gone by when prelates make the.  assumption of inf.'ilibility as a, premise  can afford to be strictly logical. The  keepers of the conscience of-men have  genet ally found that their- authority  can be asset ted in practice, only by  adapting it somewhat to the nct'inl  state of the conscience they have in  keeping. They secure obedience by  limiting their commands. .When they  do not. they find, as a, matter of fact,  that their 'keeping' is more formal  than real. Probably the Bishops of  Quebec will sooner or later learn .this  in the school of experience. In the  meantime! they .-ire contributing to tlie  instruction, possibly, and certainly to  amusement of the modern world.���������  New York Times,  Lonoon January 211. ��������� Sir Isaac Pitman,' inventor ot the well known  system of shorthand, is dead!

Nervous Dyspepsia is the real  trouble with so many people who  imagine they have nervous prostration, and ascribe their trouble to  every forin of nervous weakness  except the right one, which is the  stomach.  This is largely due to ihe fact'  that in Nervous Dyspcsia there is  no pain in stomach and in fact'  there is seldom much if any complaint about tho digestion.

Rossland Miner: The Miner believes  that the year we have just entered on  will be the crucial vear in the history  of liossland. The camp must do some;  thing more than exhibit big surface  showings and make large promises.  It must produce and produce largely.  This, the Miner is confident, it will do,  and in order that the public/may be  able to know exactly what the camp  is doing in this respect we have made;  arrangements to ;publish weekly the  shipment's of ��������� ore from Rossland's  mines. These figures will be furnished  us bv the transportation companies  and mav be depended upon to be absolutely correct."  Turning to' the past year we find  that the camp has nothing to lie  ashamed of in its record. Owing .to  inadequate transportation facilities  the output of the camp wascompitra-  tivelvlight until within the.past few  months," and even now the second railroad has only begun lo take ore. away.

At the present time and for the past  two months the. shipments of ore have  averaged "a little belter than 200 tons  per dav. the only- means of transportation " being the narrow guage line of  the Columbia.it Western ' Railway.  ' "Were this average maintained  throughout the vear it would reach a  totiil of 70,000 tons in 1S07. We are  well satisfied, however, that this average, will he greatly exceeded. In our  opinion, aftet a careful survey of the  field, it will exceed 300 tons per day,  and mav even reach 000 or 700 tons.  The production for: 1S97 is not likely  to fall below 100,000 tons of a value of  ������3,500,000.  o    "���������       THE  SILVERY   SLOCAN;., -���������    ���������  The Spokane Review, in'summinc  up the situation..in the Slocan, gives  the estimated production of lead and  silver for 1S!>7 Jas 83,000.000..- -The  Review includes in its report some  mines in the Ainsworth division that  'are close to the-Slocan line, although  they are all in what is known by the  outside people as the Slocan district,  Here is what the Review says:  "The Slocan disirict will produce at  least $5,000,000 during the present  year.

Columbia- Gazette  shows that there were &IU- companies  organized in' the province during 1S00.  for the surpose of developing the mines  ,of British Columbia, which is about  200 more than the previous year. The  total capitalization of these companies  is $315,000,000. This immense capitalization shows that there . is something  radically wrong with o'ir.mining laws  ���������and even the brilliant possibilities  of British Columbia do not warrant  these splendid preparations. The.  boards of trade are taking the matter  up aud are preparing to ,move the  local government to have every new  company taxed one per cent of their  normal capitalization. This, it is  thought, by. reducing the number 'of  shares and" increasing the price will  effectually prevent "wild catting."' It  is said there ;ire 03.000 more claims in  tlie province looking for companies���������  so that there will be lols ol" chance to  legislate \-ct.  '.MINING  RISKS COMPARE!}.     ''  ' Canadian Miner: Some people think  'that'an investment in gold mines is of  the nature'of gambling. ' The' opinion  is,a mistaken one. If an investor takes  care to see. that the mine he invests in  is properly equipped in capital, is managed by   practical   men,   directed by  really trustworthy people and shows  sufficient development to ascertain  that it probably will prove a real mine,  he lakes no more of a risk than in engaging in a drygoods, grocery or hardware business! The late lion. John  Mucdonald, one of Toronto's most successful wholesale, merchants, some  years ago stated that after a twenty  years acquaintance with the careers of  men engaging in commercial life, he  had found that sixty per'cent lost all  or ������������������: ������������������ 'most all of the money  they put into business; that thirty-five  percent got out barely holding their  own; or making but little, and that  only five per cent, actually '-made  moiicy. Talk about risks! ' Mining,  especially when undertaken with  moderate care, does not present the  risks of ordinary business  enterprises.  I1ALI)  MOUNTAIN  A 1'1-'AI US.  The rapid rise in some o������ the mining  stocks of West Kootenay is creating  quite 11 stir in the local investment  market and we hear of several sales  being made at good liguies. It is the  intention of the promoters of the Bald  Mountain mine's to place their slock  on tho market in a few days. The  company it will be remembered is  compose altogether of Calgary'men  and have been prosecuting development work steadily during the winter  on one of their 10 mining claims.  Heretofore they have not been  justified in asking the public to  assume, any financial responsibility in  connection with development, but  have carried on their operations at  their own expense. The results are  now, we learn, proving so satisfactory  that the management feel justified in  putting some of their stock on the  market. We are informed that some  parties in the eastern American  cities have already made application  for blocko of the "stock. It is likely  that some of it may also be placed  on the local  market cit an early date.  GOOD  DEMAND  FOR STOCKS.  Ellis & Grogan report having sold  today a large block of Deer Park Gold  Mining Stock. There is also a, good  demand for Monita and Colonna stocks.  A Crack at the Bar.  Chatham, N.B., citizens on Saturday  gave a banquet to Mr. 11. li. Bonnet,  hamster, who is moving to Calgary to  join a well known legal linn. In proposing the toast of the Bench and Bar,  Mr. J. L. Stewart relieved his feelings  and amused the gathering by saying it  was the first time in his life that he  had been asked to propose a toast.of  which he could say nothing good.  People went to the lawyers in trouble  and were soon .in greater trouble. It  was like seeking surcease from pain or  sorrow in opium or alcohol. The last  stage of the poor devils was worse than  the fir.-l.' I Laughter.) The only good  he could say of the profession, and the  only thing that marred the guest of the  evening, was that Mr. Bennett belonged to it. Law-yets pounced upon the  estates of the deceased, and, with the  help ol the judges, gobbled them up.  Creditors who tried to get bankrupt  estates out of the lawyers' hands were  in danger of being made bankrupts  themselves. Witnesses were browbeaten until sensitive and self-  respecting persons would rather see  guilty persons escape than appear  against them. Judgments were  sometimes withheld till half of the  interested parties had died. No two  courts, and no two judges seemed able  to agree on the simplest questions of  law and justice. Instead of protec ting  liberty and property, the courts endangered the liberty and absorbed the  property of those who cot into them.  But it "was necessary to keep on the  good side of the profession, for fear of  the consequence in case one got  entangled in legal toils, and "hence this  toast.   (Laughter and applause).  A few days ago the first curfew bell  was rung in-Ottawa at S o'clock, and  no children wereon the streets after  that hour. The relief to parents to  know that their children are not  loafing about after dark must he very  great.  Sixteen children were burned to  death and three fatally' injured in a  fire that destroyed an orphans'home  near Dallas, Texas.  The Pall Mall Gazette in a long  leading article warns the Catholic  Church 111 Canada that unless it  abandons its arrogant assumption  of Governmental powers and clerical  interference in politics it- will  endanger its existence.  The resignation of Mr. John Sinclair  as Governor General's secretary has  been accepted, and Mr. Sinclair has  been appointed, without pay, acting  secretary for His Excellency!

Herbert llashdall, mining recorder, Nelson, died on Friday week of  pneumonia alter five days' illness.  James Gilsion. time-keeper for the  Horne-Payne Co. at Laurie, arrived in  town on a business trip Wednesday  evening last.  The Indian plague has reached Marseilles, France, so the dispatches state,  and there have been a number of  deaths from it on the streets.  A special from Havana states that  the death rate from all diseases there  is 35 or more daily. There are 5000  cases of smallpox in the city.  Rossland Record: "The Revelstoke  Herald is a new paper that undertakes to help build up the country. It  ���������will be published twice a week and  has a healthy appearance."  There seems to be every probability  of the long unsettled townsite "muddle" being settled this summer. In  the interests of all concerned we hope  so.  The eastern portion of this town is  entirely at the, mercy of fire, until such  times as the waterworks system is  completed. Some preliminary move  should be made.  J On Thursday evening next a  Fancy Dress Carnival will be held in  the Victoria Rink. Prizes will be  given for the best ladies, and gent's  ' dress,:also skating single and double.  The Band will be in attendance.  The water pipes in some places,  where exposed to the weather, have  been frozen and burst in the last few  days. The main pipes are only some  two or three feet in the ground, but  no bother has yet been caused by  .^= frost,  A refreshment counter is being established at the Victoria skating rink,  for the accommodation of skaters, by  Frank Vandall, of the Gold Hill hotel.  J. Dunn is in charge. The enterprise  is worthy of menl ion.  Mr. Chas. Wilson, tailor of this  place, received work on Wednesday  from new Denver, of the sickness of  his brother M. A. Wilson, in the same  business, and left that evening to take  "his brother's place and look afLer him.

H'Before decidiug on the location of  your new house, weigh well the respective merits of the upper and lower  towns as places of residence. Consider  that lots in the upper town cost eight  times as much as those in the lower.  C.E.SHAW has lots in both towns  for sale, some special snaps in lower  town lots.    Give him a call.  The snow in front of the fire hall  still remains. Who, or what is the  Revelstoke fire brigade ? Will some  one kindly explain what is done or  what there is to shew for the $200 a  year contributed by the Provincial  Government to this organization.  Vancouver World: "A new weekly  paper has appeared at Revelstoke,  under the title of The Hekaid, Johnson &; Pettipiece being the publishers.  We beg to inform the World that  This Herald is a semi-weekly, and  gives readers in this district all telegraphic and news pertaining to this  district at least two days ahead of any  other paper published in British Columbia.  Will some person be good enough  to explain to Tnu Herald how it is,  or how it was. that Mr. Marti and The  Kootenay Smelting & Trading Go.  secured clear titles to their property  in Revelstoke, while others have been  unable to this date to secure the same  thing in spite of their most vigorous  efforts. Surely one man has no more  rights than another, in this, a free  country.  Commenting upon one of our recent  editorials the Victoria Colonist has  the following to say: "The Revelstoke Herald in a well considered  article pleads for government aid  to a light railroad or tramway into  the Big Bend country. It says such  roads ate built in Ireland for $500 a  mile. The Herald points out that  the r;ver route is practically available  for only three months in each year."  It is noteworthy that" the coast  papers too, recognize the need of  cheaper transportation into the Big  Bend.  Mr. N. T. Edwards, who a few weeks  ago met with a painful accident to  his right ankle while snowshoeing,  was able for the first time on Thursday lo be around without the aid of  crutches. A II EH A ld man in conversation with hiui discovered that he  was one of the first quartz prospectors  in the Trout Lake district, and the  original discoverer and owner of the  Snowshoc mine, in the Great Northern  group recently purchased by the  l-lorne-P.iyne Co. Mr. Edwards like  all the old time prospectors in the  ITarcleau country, speaks~of~ft as one"  of the richest in West Kootenay, and  recent discoveries and development  must  necessarily bear out his beliefs  Geo. A. Smith, of Boyd's ranch, who  went east last November on a plea-sure  trip, returned here on Thursday evening. While conversing with a Herald man yesterday he said that tho  weather was more severe in the east,  and that he was snow bound in Dakota for ten days. He speaks highly  of St. Paul, and particularly of the  "Globe" hotel as a place to find coin-  fort and everything a man wants.  Mr. Smith says that while in Montreal,  Toronto and other Eastern cities he  met with almost hundreds of people,  ���������mil many of them investors and  capitalists, who are coming to this  district in a month or so from now.  Things are pretty quiet in the east and  Mr. Smith seemed pleased to get back  home. lie. will hit the Big Bend  again this summer, where he has put  in the past three, seasons.  And still it snows.  Dry wood is being delivered in town  at 83.50 per cord.  A. F. LondeU's new residence is  Hearing completion.  ltobt. Gordon, of the Revelstoke  Iron  Works, is around ragain.

A report of all the freight passing  in and out of Revelstoke for January  will appear in our next issue.  A carnival is to be the next special  attraction at the Victoria rink. Thursday evening next is the date set.  John Shaw sold to J. Woodrow  three-eights interest in The Orange  Boy, situated on Cannes' Creek, Big  Bend.  * For investment, saving or borrowing.

The la grippe wave over Revelstoke  has let up somowb.it and almost every  day some new convalescent appears  on tho streets.  Work has been suspended on the  Columbia Brewing Go's, brewery for  the time being. The scarcity of lumber and cold weather preventing.  The Herald desires a live reliable  correspondent in every point surrounding Revelstoke. Give us all the news  but always the bare truth, and no  exaggeration.  As will be seen in another column a  fancy dressed carnival is being advertised to be held in the Victoria rink  on Thursday evening next.  Revelstoke is very much in need of  a chartered hank. We would suggest'  that the Molson's Bank not only advertise here, hut also put in a branch.1  There is a splendid opening.  John Doubt, watchman at the  lllecillewaet tunnel, spent a couple of  weeks holidays in town for tho benefit  of his health. Mr Doubt returns to!  his post of duty today fully restored  to health.
