NOTE AND COMMENT.;  Both from Edmonton "and Calgaiy  the* reports shew that the ranching  anil farming communities ot Alberta  are beginning to feel the genial elt'eets  of the wave of prosperity  which is passing over Kootenay.  Beith farmers anil raucheis may be  assured-that this is only thcheginiilng  of things. It is impossible to overestimate the value' of the market  which they will have in this country  'within the next lw*o or three_ years.  The establishment of a cold storage  warehouse at Revelstoke will be a big  move in the right direction and will  prove a permanent link in the connection between Alberta and Kootenay.  Tile situation of Revelstoke renders it  peculiarly adapted for the establishment of such it cold storage ware-,  house, which will act not only as"a  distributing agency but also as an information bureau on the state of the  local market for the benefit of Alberta  producers iinel buyers. Such" an institution cannot "fail to be of the  greatest benefit both to Alberta and  Kootenay.  The-Hkkald .sees absolutely no  .rhyme or .reason for dragging xx-rson-  al differences and personalities into  tlie* discussion of every topic that, arises  affecting this place.- A proposal such  as incorporation or it question such as  the selling out clause in the "Water-,  works Go's charter can he very easily  discussed on their merits without imputing pi ivate motives to everybody  who ventures to express an opinion on  these matters'. Men can quite honestly believe that the time is.or.is not  ripe"' for incorporation, or that' the  selling-out clause is unfair to .this  town, or on the .other hand only just  to the' promoters of the enterprise,  without necessarily being biassed by  selfsli and privat e motives. It is ' a  system of argument, which leads to  absolutely nothing except- ill-feeling,  and is"very apt, partieularilyiwhen in-"  dulged in bj\iiieans of correspondence  in'tbe jiuW'c*"press, to give, outsider's  ar.singularly.- unfavorable, opinion--of  the town and even .to prejudice them  against it.' 'While Constant Reader is  pluming himself eiver the nasty dig  he gave Atixions "Inquirer," and while  everybody in town, knowing who' the  writers are*, is ruling the dispute at its  proper v-tlne", outsiders, knowing nothing of the. merits of the dispute or1 the  local standing of the writers, are at  the very same time making 'a note  thai there seem to be a lot of people  in the town epiau-elling about little or  nothing and t hat in consequence it is  a pretty good place to stay away from./  Thk   Hebalb's- advice   lo the   dis-  piitatits is tu^seud it all the mining  and business news they can get hold  of and to confine their arguments cm  local topics, to verbid - discussions,  which do not travel very far.  the  1 the  last  FERGUSON.  .O      ��������� ���������  Mining and   Business  News   from  ,   Rising Camp on the Lardeau.

Co.���������A  case of wrongful enclosure of a portion of King street from Front street  south to the river. Air. Mara for the  company and Air. H. N. Coursier  agreed to remove the warehouse and  fence complained of within a month.  The court dismissed the action for  damages, but gave one-third costs  each against the defendants. Mr. W.  M. Brown was appointed arbitrator to  see that Mr. Peterson secured a road  to water his horses.  Brown & Clarke v. Alec Lingqtiist.���������  An action to recover $20, money lent.  Capt. Lingqtiist was not in court, and  the case was adjourned till the next  court to produce him, the court advising the defendant's solicitors, a Arm of  Vernon lawyers, to settle the case out  of court in the meanwhile.  The rest of the. cases were, mostly for  the* recovery, of .small debts, and were  not of very much" public interest,  though amusing enough to listen to.  Judge* Forin disposed of them in a  very l>u������itv.*s;;-likc and practical  in.inner.  The Silver Chief.        , .       '  Air. J. Kirkpntrick came* up from  the" lower country on _ "Wednesday  with a lot..of ore for assay, Among  the specimens were some from the  Silver Chief Gioup. which was'lorated  last fall em Gainer Creek about 8 miles  from Ferguson. There are five cliiims  on the gi onp. the Silver Reward, Ruby  Silver, Silver Chief, Silver Queen and  Silver Tip. which are owned by Alessrs  J. Kirkpatrick, O. D. Hoar, Stewart,  W. Jennings and A. Hehnen. 'There  are three different leads on the property. No. 1 shews a foot of solid .steel  galena, of the* same character as 'the  Great Northern ore, on the surface.  The other two shew three feet of ^a  well -mineralized concentrating ore.  The owners have great faith in their  'property, which from the surface  shewings certainly promises to be a  valuable one.  English Capital and B. C.  The Alining Journal, the most  eminent authority on mining matters  published in England, in an article  which a B. C. paper would be almost  afraid, to publish, .for fear of being  thought to__transgress the limits of  reasonable enthusiasm! says:   .  "'British capital hiis,' therefore, at  this late time of the day. begun to  flow into this most piomising'of gold  fields. It is, however, but it feeble,  trickling stream, wriggling along to  find its destined course, in fear lest a  long dmnght_ might dry it up for  ever. There'is such' a fcear, of course,  but happily the outlook is 'more promising for a wet season, when ib will  swell into a roaring torrent, and ultimately become a steady, flowing river.  Thus, in figurative language, in which  chairman at company meetings are so  fond of indulging, may we forecast  the future career of public: investment.  with much hope that the dream will  nut be unrealized. . It tvould be somewhat of the nature of a calamity if the  great claims of British Columbia were  any longer ignored. Those experts  anil capitalists who have lately visited  the field, to make acciuaintauce with  its merits by, personal examination,  have* lx*en grpatly impressed witlv its  wonderful richness, anil have returned  to this country continued enthusiasts.  Their opinions fully endorse every  word we have, written in these columns for many years past, and their  admiration is mixed with wonderment  (hat the field has so long lain in unmerited, fbscurity."  Prospecting and Speculating.  Cot mun-'e .ted.  -. Seeing that mining.property in the  district of Trout Lake is likely to be in  demand during the coming summer. I  think it'is a duty on us sill to try and  place, such property in the hands of  good) reliable firms, without the aid of  middlemen whenever possible, theis  securing stockholders against \ overcapitalization. It is often the case  that mere prospects change hanels,  having little* ov_ no merit.jfor a mere  semg. - The niiclelleuiKwi or speculator  slocks them for large sums of money  to their benefit. This method, however good for the speculator, certainly  does harm to a district just coining to  the front. 'Therefore, all.who have  the interests of the camp at heart  should try and avoid such a course.  -  Trout Lake and district possess good  bona fide mining interests, and claims  are mentioned in your paper constantly which deserve all the ' praise thev  get; bntit is possible to even overdo a  good thing. Business people try and  find the* best' methods to advertise  their wares, thus advertising has become a fine art. It is nob in skillful  hands overdone, hut touches the spot;  whilst in ruder, rougher hands it bp-  eenrips ftillsOme and sickening. II is  tberi'foru again our duty to try ani|,  put tbe various interests in ..their  proper light, to give each _ claim  or gioup of claims their full value, but  nob to overreach the spot.  The coming spring will see a great  influx of -people into this district,  many coming in for the first time. I  Lake this opportunity of advising them  before* they start out, to well weigh  the point or place they intend lo prospect. When satisfieel on the point,  prospect such country closely. Don't  walk over ib and say ib's no good.  Prospect it well in season or out of  season, or in other words, be sure of  the ground jrou have gone over; 'as  there are immense bodies of ore awaiting the really honest, painstaking  prospector. *A1I who do this will, I  am satisfied, have more than prospects  at the end of the season. We have  immense fields to prospect from east,  west, north and south���������from the affluence of the Lardo to the source of the  Lardeau, north and south; from the  Duncan to Arrow Lakes, east and  west. From such a field more or less  -Mic-cess certainly will be met with.  And if what wc* hear is correct, that a  railway line has been surveyed up the  La rein, thosame to be* completed this  summer, we are in great luck, and I  look for the realization of our desires,  viz. gooel times.  THOMSON'S   LANDING  AND   TROUT   LAKE  New Railways and Roads���������The Great  ^Western ��������� The Sawmill  Booming at  ' the Arm���������The Proposed Toll Road.  Frorn Our Own Correspondent.  Al. Beaton and .T.*is. Porter are  raw-hiding ore from the Great Northern. They have brought down 80  sacks during the last 30 days.  Two teams came over from Arrowhead teidavand there' left for Ferguson  loaded with lumber. *  Cant. T. It. Davey, M.E.. L. Thomson,.M.E., and Joe Kirkpatrick visited  the Great Western mine on the north  side of the Arm, on wliich A*. E. Kin-  cade and Billy Nutter are working.  The experts pronounce it a very fine  prospect. They say tne leael has well  defined walls, anel that the pay streak  is becoming wider and soluler as the  tunnel aitvances. If this claim continues to improve, we will soon have a  shipping mine on the Ann.  The roads are now in good condition, and probably the best' drive in  Kootenay is to be bail ficmi Arrowhead -to" Ferguson, 25 miles. The  engineers who have made*" the preliminary survey and drawn plans for  the proposed railway from Kootenay  Lake to the northeast Arm, aud from  thence up Fish" (.'reek, passed through  here the other day, and are' to return  in a few days to locate the line up  Fish Cre?k. Nearly every one in Lardeau and Trout Lake -districts is in  favor of this company getting a charter, as it will give us competition, and  we can ship our ores eir bring in our  supplies by the route which gives us  the best rates.  I-observe from last week's'' papers  that ���������mother company is applying for  a charter to construct a railway from  Galena Bay to some point up Lardeau  Creek, and also up Fish Creek. They  also want authority to charge toll e>n  wagon loads, wliich the;y may-first  construct, some years before commencing the ' construction ' of tbe  railway. There must bo some"mistake!  about this. Tlie idea of a toll gate is  about 101) ye-'irs behind the times, and  would be a disgrace to it great mining  countrydike Kootenay. If such a bill  ptls'sed the legislature of ' British  Columbia, we would, for the honor of  Kootenay" be conipelled'to organize a  sovietjr'of,Rebeccas Daughters. -But"  few-"woiifcl "'obje?cb to the eouipan3"  charging'-toll'on the 12cmiles of road  they are going to build' from.Galena  Bay to the.wagon' road' above Thomson's, ns hut-few.are likely to want to  use it except the company themselves;  hut the wagon road from the Arm to  Trout Lake, anil the roads and trails  up Lardeau Creek, are the main arteries of the .Trout Lake* district, and  uo wagon road or railroad company  should be allowed to charge toll on  them,"to tear them up, or to interfere  with them in any way. In case any  company attempts to dei any*of these  thinks they will find they will be bitterly opposed hy the people who now  use these .roads. ..The, present-roads  cost a, large .sum of money, ar.d should  he preserved. They, will always* alford-  us an alternate route, and thus bend to  keep down exhorbitant charges, and  aflforel us a pleasant drive, when we  desire to take an airing. The pe'ople  of Ferguson completed the* sleigh  road to the town iind are now using it  free*, and ib would be absurd to make  them pay toll on it next winter.    ~  Sandy Cununings is again at the  Landing.-, He nearly recovered from  an attack of la grippe, but has had a  relapse.  J. Kirkpatrick and L. Thomson are  going in a few days to spend three  months prospecting in the Okanagan  and Kettle river'countries. They are  to return, in June. We wish them  success iu their search foe the yellow  boy.  The saw mill al Comapic on the Arm  is running night and day in order to  (HI the orders thqy have received from  down river points. They have about.  800.000 in piles. They are furnishing  an excellent quality of lumber, and on  this account they will always have  more orders than they will be able to  attend to.  Provision should be made for a  registration office at Revelstoke for  Kootenay during this session. The  interests-of the pecple of Kootenay  and its importance demand this as a  right, and our members should see  that we get it.  ENGLAND AND FRANCE.

The ledge is fifty feet wide on the surface and the ore is a sulphide containing from bin-face assays all the way  friim :i trace to $15 in gold, and as  much as 20oz. in silver and 30% copper.  The ore is exactly the same as that of  the War Eagle and Ije Roi and will  have to be treated the same. The property, which is but little known has  been bonded 'by the discoverers  to the London anil* Vancouver Finance  and Development Co. at a substantial  figure and will be among the Ferguson  mines on which active development  will commence next season.  The rush into the Kootetrav rrmntry  may necessitate a change of time em ���������  the C.P.R:. and it is said to be among  the probabilities that the companv  will restore the fast, service of 1893- If  this is done the Atlantic express wilt  reach Winnipeg in the evening, and  the Pacific expiess in the morning, but  no decision has yet been reached inthe  matter. However, the authorities  have in contemplation the arrangement of such a service as will give-  passengers for the mining districts  close connection with the steamships  plying on the lakes south of Revelstoke. and boats will be scheduled ti>  arrive iind depart at convenient hnur������  of trains passing that point.���������Free-  Press. ***i��xH*-T*.-*��*h��C"iwuXV*.i*-)-ff��',i,r '.'lil'IMl l" t"ri

The Toronto Telegram says that
even while the country has been
shouting against O. P. R. uggres-
biou Sir William Van LTorne has
cal.-uly brought the Globe's lines of
Argument within the scope of his
great system.
St. Patrick will have a hard time
to keep his name before the public
this year. If he happened to be a
prize fighter he might manage it,
but being only a saint, there is
no chance for him now-a-days in
enlightened Christendom.
Ex-President Cleveland has on
more than one occasion during his
term of oflice shewn that he had
more common sense than the
legislature which is supposed to
advise the President. His veto of
"the .Corliss amendment to the
alien labour bill will only add to
the high estimation'of an already
great man.
The North Dakota senate has a
keen eye to the main chance. I u
order to develop the divorce
industry in the state it has been
decided to extend the probationary period tor divorce candidates
from ninety- days to one year.
The easy condition of divorce in
Dakota has killed off all competition, and the only result of the
recent change will be increased
hotel bills and larger expenditure
geneially by the candidates.'

To thi.; Kditoii op Tins llElt.w.D:  Sin.���������If you will allow me space in  your valuable paper, its a resident,  citi/.i-ii and rat (���������payer, I would like to  iiiiike: a few reiuiirks and also a few  suggestions. The epii'slions I would  like to take up iiro : Town Incorporation, Kxpendilure of Government  Aleine.y, Alien Labor Act and the'. Corliss Aiuendnii-nl, and the Chinese  Question Apparently on liny project, advanced Iiy one end of this town,  the other seems lo lake, the opposite  .stand. There i.s an old and true saying that, a "house eliviih-d against itself cannot stand." Therefore I would  suggest thai before wasting any more  time talking over incorpeirnlieui and  causing any more ill-feeling, they bury  the hatchet iind also this nasty ill-  feeling, that i.s now so apparent, sei  deep that, it will never again be resurrected. Let there be more charity and  brotherly love shewn, and Revelstoke  from the Columbia river to the station  will be mure' progressive in the future,  than it has been in the past. Now  when this comes lo pass, anil the  powers that, be wake up and make  nrrnngetneiits that wo can get titles  to our laud, then I would say by nil  means let us incorporate. Of course  there can he ,-t great many arguments  brought forward on both sides of Ibis  question. To my mind lhe greatest in  ils favor is in regard to the taxation  of properly. As the system exists at  present, it" is unjust. While we,-as  citizens, are taxed at the rate of one  hundred dollars for a lot 25x100 feet,  these large corpeirntions holding this  vacant I own properly are only taxed  ill $100 per acre, while they are asking and selling these lots for $200each.  or a lot.'i 1 of ijia.OOO per acre. I quite  agree with Observer in lust, week's  HiiitAi.i), when the time has' come,  elect, none but, true and good men to  oilier, who will work for the interests  of -ill. ,  Now. Sir, in regard to the expenditure of Government moneys,  I  admit  for one, and I know that 1 express the  si miinent.s of a ..rent number of   . e>">-  pie in Ibis district, when 1 say that in  the.   past   these  appropriations    both  froin   the   Dominion  iind   Provincial  Governments    have    been   recklessly  spent.    But let us hope for the future.  1 have read an article in The Herald  ol' Alarch   0th,   commenting  on   this  river expenditure,   in  which , it   very  .strongly condemned the. appointment  of All-. S. Durham   as   .superintende:nt  of this work, and speaks very positively of his  incompetence.     Now, Sir, I  am not here to defend   Air. Durham;  neither am I going  to   condemn   him  without  trial, neither elo  1  know  by.  who or how he came to   get   the   appointment.    Bul this  1  will  say  that  the principle: is nil   right   of  appointing a citizen and "a  local man   to   the  position, not, like it  has  been   in   the  past���������bringing in  outsiders to 1111  the  best position-*.   Air.  Durham  has  the  experience* of a  lumberman,  and   this  is no positive'proof lhat he is unfit for  Ihe. position.    Allow me to say  that'I  believe that it is from this class of men  who have followed lumbering and river  repairing in the lumber woods  in  the  i'list, that the very best men are found  for this work.  Now in  regard   to  the  Alien   Labor  Act and Corliss amendment, I see it is  to Jiecome.law in   the   United  States!  t consider il. a blot  e>n   the  history   of  any civilized  nation   to  pass such  an  Act. and more especially that part di-  I't-elcel against their Canadian cousins.  I caiinntTniid will not. believe  that  lhe  majority   of   true   American   citizens  favor such nn unjust Act.    But I quite  understand that.lhere is a small  minority there, thu.foreign element, which  are oppused   to anything and everything British or Canadian, which must  be pieascd in times of election,���������hence  the Corliss Act.    Now  Sir,   under  the  present ciremnstanees. the only thing  i ih.tt we as Canadians, wholeive British  i fair play, can do, is to  urge upon  our  ! I'i'spcct'vti.ineiiiher.   in   the .Duminic__n_  "���������"House,   the   necessity   of    passing ��������� j.  I retaliatory  bill   al   their-   very   earliet  ��������� convenience.
