The unusual, length of the winter is  proving a serious matter to the cattlemen   of   Kamloops   iind the vicinity.  Generally   they   calculate  to have to  feed hay for afiout two  months only,  but this"year the winter set in early in  "Noviiniber.-and- many cattlemen-have  been   feeding   right   along   from   the  middle   of    that   month.      The   consequence is that their stock of hay is  exhausted, aud there are from 12,000  to 15,000 head of cattle starving in the  district.     The area of the hay famine  extends   from Shuswap to Ashcroft.  Last   Friday the Kamloops Board of  Trade,   with   a  large and  influential  deputation eif cattlemen, met the district freight agent. Mr. Cameron, and  laid the   matter   before  him.     They  asked for a special reduction in order  to enable them  to get in   baled hav  from Alberta.     At present baled Kay  cau be got f.o.b. on lhe C. & E. line* at  from $4 to $0 per ton.     The freight  conies to $7 per ton.     Thu cattlemen  asked for a slight concession  in view  of the urgent nature of the case, and  Mr.   Cameron   promised to do all he  could for them.     At present lowland  hay is worth $20 per ton in Kamloops.  The  position of tlie cattlemen    is   a  critical one. both for themselves and  the whole of the inland portion of the  province,  which   depends  largely on  the cattle raising industry.  "The Incorporation Question  To THE^EuiTOH of The Herald :  Sir,���������'In   your   issue   of   Saturday,  March  0th,'appears a letter over the'  signature; of "A  Close .Observer."     1  hardly think a reply necessary, excepting to thank him  for the  information  he .brings out  by   the   following sentence:    "Now,   sir,   their   movements  seem to be a kind of stumbling block  they are wanting to put in the way of  our few young men in this part of the  "district, who are seeking incorporation  foi- water and electric: light company."  The.,writer hasa bill before him which  is_.nn\v having   the   attention of   thy  legislature, entitled '"An  act respecting tlia incorporation of the Revelstoke*  Waterworks, Electric Light, to Power  Company. Limited (limited, no doubt,  as to liability,,but in hardly any oth'.-r  respect). "   After giving tlie company  poweirs to obtain  lauds  by .exproprii-  tion/and other powers almost without  limit, section 47 says: Vln event of the  incorporation, within the meaning of  the municipal acts for the time being  in force in this province, of the town  of Revelstoke, the said corporation so  created; shall at any time   they may  think fit have the  right to  purchase,  and the company shall be compelled to  sell . the   works   and   property of the  company, on the said corporation paying  tej  the  company the" cost of construction Hnda.suffieient sum to make  up the. interest on'the capital invested  iu cost of construction  anel  maintenance to the amount of twelve (12)-per  centum' per annum to date   of- such  purchase, after, taking   into  account  any profit that  may  have  been made  up, to   that' time, and  a further sum  equal to a bonus  not exceeding thirty  (3u. per centum' on the capital actually  invested.'"     Now, let  us  assume  that  the incorporation  of Revelstoke does  not occur for a year and  this plant is  put in and it,costs  $50.01)0 (amount of  capital in application for charter), the  interest for one year would  be  $0000,  anil 30 per rent, bonus equals $15,000  more, or $71,000.     If  the   town  hael  been incorporated  before  the passage  of this act-they could obtain the same  privilege for. any way. G per cent, on  money,.or $18,000 less���������or say $53,000.  In reply to those.who cry we shoulcl  not   incorporate   until   we   have   our  titles,  as   we cannot collect   taxes, I  would say that if it is in the. power of  _the___pro_v.iticial___gc)_vet'iiiiic*.tit^.to_gr;int  the: franchises under this act   before*  the house, and provide  for collection  eif-all dues thereunder, the  municipality could hy the same government be  given   full   powers   for   collection   of  taxes.  _ No    further    comments    on   these  points are necessary.

To the Editor of The Herald:  Sir,���������It i.s rather amusing to learn  of the keen perception of. your correspondent "A Close Observer." If he  had been as his notn de plume woulel  lead one to suppose, he should have  learned long ere this that one of the  strongest arguments for incorporation  was to put the stumbling block he  mentions in the way of the "few  young men." I strongly advocateel  incorporation at the fh-st meeting so  the town would retain its franchises;  and that any one would openly come  into print, and advocate the bartering  of them for less than the proverbial  mess of pottage, is rather high-handed  piracy.  Are the ratepayers of this town  aware that there is a clause in the bill  now before the provincial legislature  giving the water and electric company  tbe right, in the event of the town becoming incorporated and wishing to  secure the privileges, to charge ns 12  per cent, per annum on invested capital to date of purc-hasc, nnd a bonus of  30 pet* cent, as well? Figure this up.  ratepayers, on the proposed capitalization, SoO.OOO, and then consider  whether it would not be better to incorporate, to float your own bonds or  eli'bentin-es at 0 per cent., which can  easily be done*, and own your own  franchises,.  As. far as I  have heard, nut one of  The Incorporation Question  To the Editor of The Herald:  Sir,���������Kindly permit in6 lo remark,  on the letters which appeared inyom-  last, issue re incorporation. With  reference to the first letter, while I  believe in the minority letcogni'/.ing  the will of the majority,'I also consider that it is the duty of those who'  have a good cause to' convert tb-ir  minority into a majority. John Moil -y  has well said, "The history of success  is the history of minorities" So shall  it be with thu incorporation of Revelstoke.  Is it true, as stated in the second  letter, that the reasou why incorporation is to be shelved is to enable "our  few young men" to get a cinch on the  water-rights which ought to belong to  the people of Revelstoke? If so. then  I say it is a public scandal. Are our  few young men among the opponents  of the incorporation movement? If  so. then the reason for their attitude  is plain, as it is to secure to them a  large, bonus for the natural lights  which should be conserved for "the  people. Every right-thinking man  ought to enter a vigorous protest  against such a scheme. If such a proposal was brought to the'light of clay  m the Australasian colonies, the people would rise as one man in indignant  protest. Not a member of parliament  would lend himself to the support of  such a charter. The sooner a similar  sentiment prevails iu the legislature of  this province, the better will it,be feu-  British Columbia. Some one has .said:  '���������Turn a thinker loose and he shakes  the* world: turn a monopolist loose  anel he shakes as much of the world as  he can fence in." Is it to be saiil nf  Revelstoke that the thinkers anil men  of public spirit, who dare to do then-  duty for the lown and for ils people,  shall remain in a mir.o.-ity?���������I am,etc.,  '     E.   A.   IlAGGAN.  March S.  The" Herald Gives Solid Reasons  for the Faith the Citizens of  Revelstoke Have in the Future  of the Place  A  noticeable  feature in  the   social  atmosphere of Revelstoke is the assured confidence wilh which  her citizens  look forward to the. immediate future,  and the faith which they place in her  certain development into a prosperous  business centre. " This  reliance  is   all  the more remarkable in a place, which  has up till late   years   existed   under  somewhat of a cloud, and  which has  not hitherlo gained  mnch  reputation  among   tbe    outside    public,     while  younger rivals in Kootenay have  shot  ahead    into    world-wide     publicity,  "Revelstoke has in fact in the past been  chiefly known as a town  possessing a  smelter, which did not do any smelting, and asthe gateway to a gold producing couutry in the Big Bend, which  was not as a matter of fact producing  much gold and .was apparently content to live on a reputation gained  in  the sixties.   It will suffice to remark  on these two   points   that   the   most  enthusiastic resilient of this place does  not claim that smelting as conducted  in Revelstoke during '87 or gold milling  as carried on in the Big Bend country  from 1SS5 to 1(392 will ever be productive of anything  but failure.     Other  factors tending to keep the place bade  have been the uncertainty of- the title  to the townsite, and a neglect on the  part of the C.P.R. to the just pretensions of  the  place   as   a   distributing  point".   It may, however, be reganled  as certain that- the. townsite' question,  which only requires the completion-of  a few red tape formalities to he-cleared  up will soon be settled and signs are  not  wanting that the  railway   company is awakening to a sense of  the  fact that this will shortly become   a  point, which it will be to their interest-  to regard with considerable favor.  THE  POSITION OF RliVELSTOKE.  ' Revelstoke's chief claim on the future  is her geographical situation. Through  her lies the only avenue by which the  well-known silver district of .Slocan.  the wealth of thp silver anel  gold mines of Lardeau anil Trout Lake,  and the placer diggings and gold-bearing quartz fields uf the Big Bend can  be : approached. East of 0 Revel-  stoke^lies__the_-_Illecillewaet_j-*aIley,-  in ' which recent discoveries of  immense value have" been made,  which development has shewn to rest  on a substantial basis; west of her the  Jordan and Eagle Pass are beginning  to attract the aT.tention of prospectors,  owing to valuable indications discovered-last year not far from town. In  the immediate* neighborhood indications of gold bearing quartz were also  found last year and placer diggings  have baen prospected just across tbe  river and will be worked next season."  For all this rich district Revelstoke is  Ihe centre and distributing point  Within a very short space of time  Ferguson, the   coming  camp  at  the  -    - - -     - nil  Miners and   Prospectors.

From '07, when the old time miners  left the district for the more easily obtained wealth  of  Cariboo, till 'So, the  Big-Bend   remained   in    undisturbed  peace,   and   though   for   seven   years  afterwards men were living  up there  anel going in anel  coming out,   it  was  not till '92 that mining began to be resumed. - Since 181)2 placer digging on  a largo scale has been resumed  arid  is  still   being   carried   on   at   the   Last  Chance and Consolation claims, and a  company is working a claim nt Smith's  creek as a hydraulic proposition, while  two more compan-es will operate with  hydraulic     machinery     on      French  creek this next season.   Gold  bearing  quartz has been found in considerable  quantities particularly in  the  locality  known as Ground Ho^ Basin, in which  the  Orphan    Boy claim, on   wliich   n  Revelstoke company has already done  considerable work,   proving   the existence of a large body  of ore   on   the  lead, is situated   as   well   as   a   large  number of oilier claims,  on .some   of  which an American   company  intends  to do  considerable  development  next  season.   There are also  two Vancouver   companies   formed   to    develope  claims in this vicinity.     Lower down  the  river at Carnes' Creek,  a   Revelstoke company  Ins   ae-epiireil  several  quartz   claims   and   will  do   work on  them next season.    Work is now commencing on the removal of minor ol>-  slructions to navigation in"the canyon  of the. river, whie-li will render it navigable He far up as, Laporte,  above the  mouth of Downie creek.   The C. P. K-.  has promised to put   on   a   boat   next  season to run that distance, which will  leave only about. 25 or 30 milesof pack-   ."  ing to he "done to reach   any   part  of  Coldstream   or   its  affluents    McCul-  lough and French  creek.     With" this  assistance there is no doubt there  wil.l  be a  large  influx  of  prospectors into  the  Big   Bend   countiy   next - season  and from what is already known of.the^.,  country   beyond   Coldstream on "the"  Columbia and north   up  Canoe, river,  there is little doubt that valuable  elis-  coverie-s will be made in it.   The lower   .,  part of Canoe river particularly is des-v   ������"  cribed as being a  district  particularly. t  likely to reward a thorough investigation.    Altogether lhe prospects for the  Big Bend   country, to   which   Revelstoke is the only possible gateway  are*' ,  bright this  year, and   the  close "of   it  will   see one  or   more   lively   mining  camps established in that famous'.district.  1LLEC1LLEWAET.    '  Following  up   Carnes' creek  brings  the pr.isneclor to  the   headwaters, of.  the north branch  of  the  lllecillewaet     -  on which  a  number   of   claims   have*,  been stakeel out. ���������   Development work  has fully borne out the promise of  the  ���������  surface indications.    On one  of  these  claims, the Waveiley, which'has been  recently acquired by an   English  syn-   -  dicate, a  tunnel has  been driven 17t>   .  feet on the lead,   shewing   a splendid   -.  body of very rich ore.'

'  ���������   Of' all   tlie   districts   tributary    to'.v:  Revelstoke none are more rapidly com-,  ing to the front than the Lardeau and-   ,  Trout Lake sections.   The'extrao'rdin-   *  ary surface indications to be'found on   .-  the Lardeau river and Fish creek-were,   ;  discovered  some   time , ago',, in.  fact.',  shortly after the wonderful discover-" ''  ies of silver ore  in   the   Slocan ��������� had- ":  drawn atteniion' to  Kootenay, as. the't  richest silver counti-y on   the ���������* globe. "  Unfortunately while a eertairi'iimounV '  of   development  had-already  .taken  place*, in the Slocan district before the  '���������slump" in silver.   Lardeau  and Fish  Creek were still only known' by- their  surface shewings. ' Development hav- .-  ing been begun in the Slocan went on  .  until   it  proved   that  the "wonderful  richness of the Kootenay. silver.' mines..'.,  enabled them lo be worked at a  profit-  even in the face  of the   low ..price, of  silver and attention   was   otice   more  called to the  prospects discovered-' on'-'  the Lardeau. ��������� It is uo exaggeration to   ..  say that for surface  indications  Lardeau ,river excels   anything   yet  discovered in West Kootenay,- while  the  development   done     on." the-   Great  Northern  anil Silver Cup groups  by  the Horne-Payne syndicate, and otheis  have firmly established   the   substantial richness and permanent nature of  the leads below'the surface.   No, bet-,  ter proof can be adduced of the s-.itis-  factory nature of the results hitherto  obtained than  that  tbe  Horne-Payne.  people have acquired other claims "adjoining their own recently  at a   good  figure and wish to acquire more. They  will put up a concentrator at Ferguson  this coming season and   will  probably  build   a  road   into   that   point from  Galena Bay on the  Arrowhead  Lake,  with a  branch  up  Fish   Creek.     Another road Is being .surveyed from  the.  south along the  west  side   of  Trout  Lake to Arrowhead.     Space  will  not  permit us to dilale  on   the   numerous  claims iu the Lardeau and Fish' Creek.

WEDNESDAY.   MARCH   10,     1SD7.  Iii view of some of his recent  Utterances'at Ottawa on North  West affairs it might not be out of  place to suggest that Mr. Hauitain  should post himself on the state  of public sentiment in the West,  nnd more particularly in Albertu.  The") Ottawa Minister who  opposes the building of the Crow's  Xest Pass line on the ground of  expense, and "that the Territories  with their sparse population could  not bo said to be in dire need of  such a railway," cannot be said to  add much -to tho intelligence of  Mr. Laurier's cabinet. The sooner  the rest of the Government repudiate his pessimistic sentiments the  better, will be Western opinions of  their policy.  -. The Toronto Globe stoutly  denies the -allegation that the  Dominion Government lias had  tiny negotiations regarding Manitoba school matters with the Pope.  This will allay any,doubts existing among the Liberals of Ontario.  Li ��������� Soleil, successor to the suppressed Electeur, of Quebec, gives  'the detailed particulars of Mr.  Kitzpatrick's mission to Rome and  his negotiations with the Pope.  This, shews the Catholics of Quebec that Mr. Laurier is doing all  he can for them at headquarters.  And yet there are people who do  - not understand the "sunny ways"  of Canada's accommodating Premier.  A bill now before the Ontario  Legislature 'proposes that tbe  councils of towns of less than 1000  inhabitants shall consist of a  mayor and six councillors, all to  be elected Iiy a general vote, so  that every ratepayer may vote for  six councillors, instead of only for  i, thie councillors in his own ward.  This statutory proposal coming in  .the wake of the recent reduction  _^^jii^the^nuniber=_of_county_coun^  uillors iu Ontario is being well  received, and has met with favour-  ��������� able comment at the hands of the  Outario press. It has been found  by experience that too many councillors like" the3proverbial cooks  spoil the broth of civic business.  The one councillor from a ward is  naturally far more alive to his* responsibility thairjfwhen that responsibility is shared by two or  1 liree other representatives from  the same district. The extension  nf the proposal to"tbe West is not  unworthy of consideration.  "It is plain," says Lieutenant-  ('overuor Mackintosh in a recent  magazine article, "that the practical immigration policy would be  to prove'.that Canada is able to  progress without undue depend-  elenco upon the outer world. The  Dominion lias capital and capitalists: unfortunately, many who  possess wealth close their purse  ->*triug������, imagine they have done  - enough in their time, and call on  1 he younger element to show what  is in them, by taking tneir  chances. Age, after all, is of com-  p-irativo signification. The bloom  i,f you'll never forsakes the-man  who is active, vigorous and  systematic towards his generation,  and decrepitude only begins when  mental aud physical energies are  permitted ��������� to lie dormant. A  C'ladstono at fl" years of age is a  standing reproach to the middle  aged individual who allows  himself to drift into reminiscent  uurrenti*, closes his counting  house, ties up his money bags, and  prepares to depart in peace. Let  some of these think again, aud, so  I hinking. emulate the example of  the race from whence they sprung.  The Kootenay country requires  men of capital, men of experience,  men of probity and energy.   The  Dominion possesses them���������if they  will but come out of seclusion aud  unite in accomplishing something  worthy of manhood."

The legislature of British  Columbia, which gave everything in  sight to the British Columbia Southern  will require to be vetoed before anything satisfactory ran be clone, since  tlie Canadian Pacific hold an option of  S-S-VM. Sh">,W)0 of which is paid on  this i'oael. All coal lands are tied up  in this charter, so that for Canada to  luiilel a road under these conditions  would mean making a railway for a  company to carry its own coal to  market at its own prices. The-whole  thing is getting moie involved here,  and it looks as if nothing definite will  be done tor some time to coine,  certainly not before Parliament meets,  when all the* members will have  a chance of taxing part in the  arrangement.  Mrs. Terry, wife of ICdward Terry,  the well known F.ngh&h actor, is dead.  James Hepburn, of Pierson, who  was found guilt}'at the Brandon assizes of a criminal assault on a girl under fourteen, has lieen sentenced to  two years imprisonment and fifteen  lashes of the cat-o'-nine-taiis.  Hon. Joseph Martin has been inter-  viewi'el by the Winnipeg Tribune on  his return from the east. Mr. Martin  confirmed the report that he bad at>  cepted a special solicitorship to the C.  P. 11., but denied that he had been  employed to lobby the Crow's Nest  Railway hill for tfie company.

Did yez walk much in the  sun Sunday, whin Smith an' you shot  the big bag av shnipe yez bought from  the shikari "on" yer way home?"    *,  "Merciful, liivin! Look al that!"  cried Dolan. -rising and .. pointing a  trembling ' linger al-something out in  the  garden among the crotons.  "Did yez see the voice, Dolan, tlie  swale owld Irish voice, Patsey?" lazily  ineiuired Kiley, as he gathered himself  up to a sitting position in tho deep arm  chair he had been'lying back'in. As  he did so, his eiuick eye caught sight  of something that brought" him up  standing.  Grabbing a heavy 111 ill ticca from a  pair of deer horns just over his head,  he rushed out, closely followed by Do-  lu.n.  The enemy saw them coming and prepared himself for the attack. Coiling  about half, his length under him, he  swung the upper part of his body back  and forth, back und forth like tbe pendulum of a clock, only there was a  terrible suppleness" about the sinuous,  undulating movement that told plainly  with, what lightning-like rapidity lie  could straighten it out and bury those  cat-like fangs in the shrinking flesh. ,  A well-directed blow from ttiley's  stout Malacca laid the snake out dead.  "Ue the powers!" exclaimed Dolan,  "but that's tha biggest cobra 1 over  Icini across: .He's nearly six fut, I  think: and mind yer prowiin'. Dan,  fur, mark my words, there'll be a-divil  av a male about here somewhere. D'ye  be careful when yer goin' out this bliss-  ed   night."  "Have something to take the,taste av  the baste out- av yer mouth, Dolan,"  said Uiley, as they returned lo the  bungalow.  ���������Just- as--Dolan_was=lif ting -the_glass,to_  his lips he turned white, and, trembling  all over, put it down again. Then he  raised it quicky and drained It %t a  single draught.  "Shure, I'm afeared I'm in for a dose  of sun raver, Xtiley. I wud take me.  oath I heerd that same voice callln' ye,  Uiley. At einny rate, I must he goir.'  now. Do ye be lookin' out fur nthat  divil av a mate, Kiley,"-washis parting  injunction. ,  "Kile Sahib not coming yet for lalVng  out number eleven." "remarked .1 llaboo  clerk** to Dolan that evening at the  railway station. ,. "He getting late. I  plenty much 'fraid he seek."  "Has he  sent  onny   wurd?"   queried  Dolan.  "Xo, sah."  "Come with me, Baboo. There must  \)e something, wrong whin Dan Itilcy's  behind   time."  When he reached his friend's bungalow he found bis servant outside on  the veranda.  "Master sleeping." he replied to their  Inquiries. "I think master not going  out."  Dolan hurried to the bedroom, but  just inside the door, lis slopped short,  as though a wall had suddenly risen  up betweeen him and the man on the  bed. .  Yes', there lay Itiley. not asleep, bat  staring, straight in front of him at the  hideous thing coiled on his chest���������tbe  cobra's mate.  It did 110L take Dolan long to make  up his mind what to do. To disturb  the snake by getting within striking  distance with a cane.' meant almost  certain death for I^iley. He dared not  strike,   but he could  shoot.  Quietly taking Riley's shotgun from  tlie corner at his very hand, anel calling  to the prostrate man not to move, he  took deliberate aim at the cobra ami  pulled the trigger.  There was a tremendous report, and  when the smoke had Iiftc*d a little, he  saw the snake lying there riddled by  thu  shot.  "Up wlel yez, Riley." cried 'Dolan,  "the dlvil's gone now. Blown to smithereens."  Then   lie:   stoppe-el.     Midden     like,   as  though   he haul  beard   the  voice again.

When the gums aro obscured  and recede from the teeth, running  sores on any part of the body, ears  discharging, inflamed eyelids, salt  rhenm, erysipelas, blood poisoning  and most cases of dropsy and  eczemas indicate refuse left in the  body by inactive kidneys. Shaking  palsy, a jerking of the eyes or head  as seen iu the aged, St. Vitus  dance, locomotor ataxia and many  cases of rheumatism are caused by  a tension of the nerves caused in  the beginning by the kidneys.  Blight's disease and diabetes,  opposite conditions, have then'  cause in the kidneys.  Catarrh and other diseases of the  bladder are caused by the kidneys  doing defective work,' leaving the  urine in an inflammatory state.  Gravel, weak ankles, hands and  feet always wet with perspiration,  and many cases where there is a  lack of perspiratioD, are abnormal  conditions caused by abnormal  kidneys.  Varicocele, varicose veins and  milk leg originate in defective  kidneys.  Curvature of the spine, in old or  young, and gout' are caused by  ;deposits from tho fluids of the body,  which should be carried away by  the kidneys.  A cough" or a fever may come  from ' congested- kidneys. Constipation and female troubles may  arise from the same source.  Paraplegia is' often the result of  weak kidneys. Poralysis of half or  the whole body may have its firbt  cause iu the kidneys.  We see here quite a formidable  array of troubles which may be  originated or fostered by these  prominent organs of excretion aud  and wo can readily see the great  necessity for keeping this avenue  for the expulsion of effete matter,  highly charged as it is with  chemical poisons, free and open'.  cheapest,  c.uiokest and  best  . route to  Toronto      Now York      Philadelphia  Montreal    Boston    Halifax  and all Eastern and European Points  Tourist Cars leave ' Revelstoke  daily for St. Paul; for Toronto  everv Monday; and for Montreal  and Boston every Thursday.
