To -the Editor of The Herald :  Sir :���������I have waited for some time  to hear from some of our authorities,  who have power to levy taxes upon  real property, and now I shall repeat  the question I asked an answer to.  1, Can the government tax properly  that they cannot give a title to.  2. If constitutional can they take  the taxes away from tho district and  appropriate them in some other district.  I also see that our board of trade is  advocating incorporation. Sir, I would  say that 1 think it_would be more appropriate to work their -utmost to  seek clear titles for tho town site before seeking municipal incorporation  as then they would have the solid  force of the people at their backs, hut  until such be the case they cannot  expect tho people to busy themselves  in the matter.  Another thing I think that they cannot get formed into a municipality  that can be just and lawful, till such  time that the old grievance, the title,  is cleared up. For instance suppose  they get incorporated and some one in  the town refuses to pay taxes for some  time, and as it is a well known fact  that they have got to lie in arrears for  some time before the municipality can  force them to pay, then would come  the test case. Could the municipality  dispose of any parcel of that property  for taxes where there are no clear  titles to. I rather think not according  to the by-laws in some of the eastern  municipalities. Hoping to hear from  some good source soon on the subject.  li Tax Payer,  Our Job Printing  Department.

The following article with regard to  the Lardeau mining district, now so  rapidly coming to the front, was  gleaned in" conversation with a gentleman, who has mined and prospected  all over it, and whose estimate of its  resources and prospects itu-lines to a  conservatives eaiiliou and can be im--  plicitly' relied on. This district lies  immediately south of Revelstoke at a  distance of about fifty miles. It is  reached ��������� by ��������� rail from" Revelstoke to  Arrowhead, thence' by steamer ten  miles to-Thomson's Landing, from  which'point'a good waggon road, 12  miles long, makes Trout Lake and 4 or  5 miles further of a sleigh rood lands  the passenger at Ferguson, the centre  of themines and the coming town-of  the district. There is on the town-  site at present a store kept by Mr.  Cummins and a. hotel owned by Mr.  Ferguson, whose name has been given  to the town. The ore is a high grade  galena silver ore, carrying copper and,  a great deal of it, gold. The best known  group'of claims is the Great Northern,  a number of which are owned by the  Horne Payne syndicate, who have  had a large force of men working on  tlie Broadview and Old Sonoma since  fall. An 'immense body of ore has  been disclosed .by the development  work"on the former .claim. The  ouly claim now shipping ore in the  group, '"is the Gre.-i_t _ Northern, of  .whicli.Hugii JlacPhersoh.is manager  -and owner.. -Another, claim in the  'group, the Queen of. the Hills, owned  by Jack Staubert,.one of ��������� the -qrigu-ial  discoverers of-.thegroup, is showirig'.up  'a good body of ore and ,\vill certainly  be shipping* next .summer. In the  Silver Cup group are several important claims. The owners of the Silver  Cup are doing development work right  along and shipping ore of a high grade  character. The claim is a most valuable one. Other claims are the Towser  and Sunshine extension of the Silver  Cup lead, owned'by-the Home Payne  syndicate, both under" development and preparing to ship ore,  and valuable strikes in which  liave"7ilrl*a71y~r>e������n~n'epTirte"d iff-The"  Herald. Abrahnmson Bros, own  another' extension of. the Silver Cup  lead, which has proved fully as rich as  any in the group for the amount of  work done. lb will also prove a shipper next season. They also own the  Great American, a valuable property,  which, with a little'development will  be'on the list,of shippers. Next in importance comes theBadshot, owned by  Johnson & Campbell, who have been  working all winter, driving a tunnel  to tap the voin. They have reached  the ledge and struck ore in a big body  and will be ready to start in the spring.  The Horn group consists of 18 or 'JO  claims, all showing excellent surface  prospects. The Poole group contains  a number of good claims, on which development, as far as it has gone, shows  a big body of valuable ore. The group  lies between the Great Northern and  Silver Cup and is believed to be on the  same contact line. It will no doubt  prove a most valuable prop?rty'in the  near future. Tho Glengarry group  owned by T. D. Sibbald is a valuable  group of claims carrying gold, silver,  and copper. But the mere enumeration of the groups of claims in this  astonishingly wealthy district would  exceed the limits of our space. The.  Wide West, Black Bear, Hunter &  Trapper, Lexington. Silver Bow, Sunshine and dozens of others show the  same valuable prospects and have in  many cases already attracted the attention of capital. The Herald will  give a fuller description of these claims  in another issue.  Across the ridge lies the Fish  Creek country, in which considerable  development has lieen done on the  Sable Creek Group,.which is showing  up excellently.  The resources of the Lardeau country  have been known "to prospectors for  several yeai-s. TheGreat'< Northern  was'first discovered 20 years ago. But  lack of transport facilities and the  natural inaccessibility of the country  have kept development back. But  with all these rich prospects and bodies  of ore before the mining and investing  public and with the transport facilities  which* will be' afforded -hv the con  struction of the proposed railway from  Galena Bay to Ferguson by the Home  Payne Syndicate, which is looked for  next spring, the development of  Lardeau will go forward by leaps and  bounds. All that is needed is capital  arid transport facilities. The Fish  Creek valley is a fertile valley of good  size, "producing grain and vegetables,  equal to the celehrated products of the  Frazer delta. There is an opemng  there for farmers with a market close  at hand jail over the mining community, i There aro also splendid timber limits in this district and McGee  & Co. are operating a saw mill on the  North Arm of the hike this winter.  The whole country with its capital  town at. Ferguson will certainly come  prominently into notice during the  coming summer and otters a splendid  field for investment with a certainty  of large returns.  THE IMPERIAL   BANK.

Mr. Blair,  Minister -of Railways, is said to be  negotiating with the C.P.R. for the  construction of the. Crow's Nest Pass  railway. - The C.P.R. is quite disposed  to build the lino, but the Minister  first desires an understanding regard-  ingfreightrates.

The Revelstoke Herald now appears twice a week, aud shows great,  improvement. A significant sign of  life is the .list .of hotel arrivals occupying about half a column. The Herald is a credit to the gateway city of  Kootenay.���������Edmonton Bulletin.  The first number of the Revelstoke  Herald is to hand. It is a well conducted, carefully edited paper, and  the publishers are to be congratulated  on its excellent typographical appearance. The news columns contain  much valuable information regarding  the rich mining districts tributary to  Revelstoke, and we hail with pleasure  the advent of this journalistic venture,  which will, we feel sure, do much ^to  attract attention to one of the .most  important mining regions of British  Columbia.���������B. C. Mining Record.  The Revelstoke Herald, . the latest  addition to Western journalistic enterprise, has evidently come to stay.  Its columns are bright and newsy, and  it seems already to have made its  mark as ^a popular advertising medium. Knowing the management as we  do. we have no doubt of its prosperity.  ���������Calgary Herald.  BIRTHS.  Stokes���������On the 3rd. inst. the wife of  Mr. Stokes of a daughter.. ... ...  ,  INTERVIEW WITH  MR.  KELLIE  The Finandes of the Country���������Approaching Change in the Political Situation.  '  Mr. .1. M. Kellie, M. P. P.. paid The  Herald a visit on Wednesday last  and submitted to an interview on matters of interest to the constituency.  Although a supporter of the present,  government, Mr! Kellie is decidedly of  the opinion that while large expenditure in the,_past has Ixten necessary  for the-development of the country  and even forced upon the government  by the actual necessities of the si tun -  lion, still the time has come when it  is becoming necessary to call a halt.'  He does not- advocate a penurious  economy but he thinks that the, following figures, which he has kindly  left with us, are startling enough to  argue for themselves that something  must be done :  REVENUE AND  EXPENDITURE   OP   B.

In 1S95  the revenue of New Westminster was  $23,138 with au expenditure of $70,382  and of Vancouver $28,911 with an expenditure of $-10,010.,.The natural consequence is that they are clamoring for'  this province to heap an additional  burden on the shoulders of the -.taxpayers by granting financial aid to  new railway schemes. Mr. Kellie  thinks wediave no business to discount  the future to any further extent and  that the province has already,sufficiently . attracted , the attention of  outside eap'tal to her vast resources to  be certain that railways will in future  be built without aid from the province  wherever the prospects of tlie locality  warrant."* ,    ., .-���������.-.-,  " My> Kellie thinks that the politics" of'  .the province are undei going, a;rapid,  change and ,-that 'whereas; in"-former  times .the provincial elections were'  fought on local lines without any  reference to Dominion politics, the  next election for the local house will  he decided on straight party. Grit and  Tory, grounds.  Mr. Kellie is for an extension of the  municipal system, compelling each  locality to bear its own burdens of  schools, fire protection, grading, etc..  with government assistance to a certain-extent-only.���������Undor_the_present  system the expenditure on schools is  getting altogether beyond control,  lie hopes to 'see" at least two new  members for Kootenay, added to the  local house this session, and then the  district, which furnishes one fifth of  the whole white population of British  Columbia,"20,000 out of 100,000, will be  in a better position to demand her full  share of representation in the house.  Mr. Kulhe stated that he would endeavour to get the act amended so  that government and legal adverlise-  ing should be done in a paper published  in the localities interested and took  his leave after proifering, his services  lo tho nt;w Herald enterprise and  wishing its promoters success.  Suspected Specs.  __ '.plausible youth with a strong  cockney accent was going the rounds  yesterday very anxious to dispose of a  pair of gold rimmed glasses; which he  had picked up apparently in Calgary,  Kamloops, on main street, Revelstoke,  and other localities. He must be quite,  a mark at finding gold rimmed glasses,  as he disposed of more than one pair-  in town. The chances are that he and  his pals stole a package of them somewhere, and the police should look after  him. He is a smoothfaced, 'boyish  looking individual, wearing a grey  hat, dark coat and blue overalls, and  is accompanied by one or two satellites,  who let him do the talking in re the  astonishing find of gold rimmed gkisscs  and his anxiety to dispose of them for  a couple of dollars in .order to get a  meal before making a break for South  Kootenay, while they remain modestly  in the hac-kg'-ound waiting results.

DARING MAIL ROBBERY
THE FORT STEELE MAIL  HELD
UP AT WAS A
Th:; Mail Driver Tied Up His Load
for the Night as Usual, But the
Fort Steele Bag Disappeared���The
Thief Captured
Tliu Fort Steele mail was robbed at
���\Vasa, on Sunday morning between
the hours of 12 and I a.m. The letter
sack was enclosed in a large sack
which therobber carried into the brush
about 300 yards from the wagon where
it was ripped open and the letter sack
taken awuv by the robber. He was
trailed to Fort Steele, and raptured
within six hours after ho had committed the robbery. The robber proved to lie Alexander M. Leitch, who has
reoided lit Fort SI eels for some months.
His record has not been what itsluuilil
be and if reports aie true, be ha?
turned several I ricks that would have
placed him behind the liars. Suspicion
was turned towards.Leitch on account
of several supposed-forgeries that have
been committed, also the breaking into a building, and robbing a till. lie.
has lieen suspected of committing
these acts, though nothing could be
moved. We also learn that lie was
caught, tapping a 1 ill at Wasii. Constable Games has been watching him
lor some time, and in 20 minutes after
the arrival of the stage had captured
his man, and recovered $1,100 suppos-
to have been stolen from the mail,
now I IK inn rr.
About 1 o'clock on Saturday night
he broke into the slable of G, Levett.
saddled and stole a hoise. and went lo
Wosa. lie succeeded in getting the
mail pnuch.n lid returned to Fort Steele,
where he turned the horse loose, took
the mail pouch to his house and went
through the sack and letters at his
leisure, enjoying it comfortable lire
supplied by tho letters stolen, and as
is supposed, getting the sum of !_il.lU0
in cash, destroying every letter that
was in the pouch after gcl.tina what
money they contained. The officers
upon searching his house found tlie
iron attaehirc'nts to the mail sack in a
stove in which everything was burned,
also a watch in a registered package. A
large sum of money has been expected
on the; late mails, which did not arrive,
parties have boon closing several
mining deals, and one directed
that Si,000 in crash be sent him.
This is piobably the money taken
from the prisoner. Several "cheque''
amounting to four or live thousand
dollars should also have been
on this mail, also money and cheques
to other parties. In all it is estimated
...Auat__about.__.six oii_ eight���thousand
dollars in cheques and nioiicy
were iu the mail. 11 i.s piobable that
all the cheques are destroyed. This is

JJTT.\W.\, l-'ebruiiry 'J.���Now that
Pniinier Laurier has been invited to
go to Kitglatid in Juno the general iin-
pres-ion is tb.'it the session ol Parliament will be short and that the Government will drop most of Us measures wilh the, exception of tliu adjustment of ihe larilV and the bills lo
aniiMid lhe civil service, accounts and

John Thompson to get away to Paris

dilliculty in Premier Laurier getting
away in June.
A big 1 ail way scheme in which Ottawa may be interested was laid before
the lirst Minister by a deputation. It
is known as the Ontario Pacific and is
projected to run from Ottawa to New
York, shortening the route between
these two points by some 0,1 miles.
Capital is on hand for building tlie
road across from Corn wall and through
the Stale of New York, including a
big bridge, and is estimated lo cost in
the neighbourhood of three quarters of
a million. All they want is a re-vote
of their subsidy' through Canadian
territory, which had lapsed on account
of the work not proceeding within the
time specified in the contract. When
this is assured the promoters say there
will not be a day's delay in getting the
work under way. Laurier gave the
delegation the impression that lie was
with them in tho matter.
Too National Policy had a great
Held diiy before the tarill' commission
yesterday. Representatives of the oil
industry and woollen and knitted
goods manufactures presented a
strong case and asked in effect that
there be no interference with the present tariff. .Messrs. Kosamond and
Kendry, M. P.'s. headed the deputa-
lation of the woollen men, who urged
,1 coiitiuuiitice ol the present tariff on
woollens. Thoy said that 15.000 hands
wore now employed in this industry,
the annual wages paid .$5,000,000,
capital invested Sl.l.OOO.OOO. A reduction in wages must necessarily follow
a reduction in the tariff. The knitted
goods manufacturers made representations to dike purpose. Their capital
was valued at '$1,000,000, the hands
employed being -1,000, and the wages
paid $1,250,000.

Mr. 11. 11. Cook, the Liberal candidate for East Simeoe, made an important statement, which was evidently inspired, at the nomination proceedings hei*e. Speaking of the legislate programme which awaited ihe
Government at the coining session, he
declared: ������The great question of the

London', January '!(>.���������Serious things  threaten the Government in the revolt  of Irish landlords. At the annual convention of landlords m Dublin, on  Wednesday last, a letter was read  from the Duke of Abercorn, which  staled "tholiindlordsare MtlVei'ing most  from the present unjust administration of law," and the Marquis of Lon-  donderiv sltited the Government bill  of 1SU0 aggravated the hardships and  meantonlv ruin to Ireland, as tending  "to force fully the expatriation of the  land owning classes, leaving the pauper  proprietorv absol.itelv without capital." The Duke of Abercorn and  other speakers demanded the appointment of a Royal commission to iutj uire  into the matter.  Dr. and Mrs. Nansen arc expected to  reach London on the evening of Wednesday, Februarv 3rd, and at Queens-  borough will be met by Mr. Scott  Keltic, secretary of the Koyal Geographical society. On arriving in town  .Dr. Nansen will at once proceed to Sir  George Baden-Powell's residence,  where the explorer and his wife stay  as guests dining their visit to London.  The explote.r will be feted by- various  societies and the nobility.  The Daily Mail, in its theatrical column', announces that every English  company in America this season has  been a financial failure. At this the  Mail rejoices on the ground that owing  to their past big success, the managers  hero are gradually producing plays  with their eyes fixed on 'America and  London is iti danger of becoming simply a feeder for New York.  It- is evident there will be no commutation of the sentence of eight  month's imprisonment imposed on  Lady Scott for libelling her son-in-law,  Earl Russell. EarlCadogan and other  ot her friends sought to obtain her release, but have "failed to shake the  Home Secretary's decision not to set  - her at liberty.  The latest thing in cntet taining is a*  gridiron partv. The- originator was  Mrs. Duncombe. daughter of Mrs.  Archibald Stuart Wortley," and form-  urlv an actress, whose stage name  was Nellie Brombley. The Prince of  Wales was among Mrs. Duncomhe's  guests and showed .the keenest interest while the grilling of his cutlet'was  proceeding. , ' The dining room was  transformed for the occasion into a  grill room and the chef dispensed fillets and cutlets cooked on silver grills  to a gathering of smart people.

It is slated  that Christians were murdered on  Thursday while outside the gates of  that city, and armed bands of Mussulmans leave Un; town daily for tin;  purpose of plundering mid burning  villages of Christians. The despatch  adds that these outrages are evidently  in accordance with hints received  from Constantinople. The situation  was considered so- serious that the  foreign consuls wired the Governor  General of Canea calling for the adoption immediately ot the strongest  measures looking to the protection of  the people. Foreign win ships are  now arriving at lleraklion with a view  of offering protection to the Christians  there.
