Hiitfhknii &  McGregor  NOTE AND COMMENT.  It seems to The Hkuai.d that the  legislature has the remedy for overcapitalization eif milling; companies  in its own hands,'.without any further  legislation on the subject at all. The  committee which: sits on a charter,  for which application has been made  to Ottawa, is just as liable to raise or  lower the proposed capital of the company, as to make any other alterations  in thu act of inceirporatiou. If they,  have this power at Ottawa, it- seems  probable they have it at Victoria" as  well. At all events they havo got to  find some old methoel or devise' shine  new one for dealing with the erils'-of  over-capitalization and wilel cutting,*  without knocking the prospector '"anil  small business man, who wants'"'to  help the prospector, and-share ',,his  profits, out of the ring altogether/} If  they cannot, over-rupitaliziitinn "'"' *  wilel catting must go on. -   ',  . ai'id  Tho eastern papers are shouting ifof;  Canada to retaliate to the Corliss Act  hy passing a precisely similar measure*'  British Columbia is the only province  in which such a retaliatory measure  woulel have any appreciable effect and  British Columbia, does not want'it.  The discovery and development' .of  Kootenay are* very largely ehiei- tb  American pluck-anel go-ahead spirit.  They are*, a factor of immense values in  Kootenav right now. Kootenay..needs  them in. her business, . If, any stich  retaliatory act is passed, it ought ito  contain a. clause making it optional"  for.anyone of the provinces to aelopt  it or not, as they e-hoose.- The Corliss  act is a disgrace to civilization' and  Ontario, at which ,,it is aimed," snivy  well feel s>ore over it. but that is.i'no  reason why British Columbia, should  be compelled to supply the plaister. )���������-���������.

The.Herald cannot agree with  some of the speakers at Monday's  meeting that the'provincial gewern-  tnent shews any sign of fulfilling its  promise tn do its share towards protecting our river bank here. On-.the  contrary it has intimated as ilistiilct-.  1y as possible that it-looks upon'stile  whole woik as one to be perfi>rme_d'.i>y  the Dominion.- Government,*'; alone.  Unele-r ..these ^circumstance's, ."ory'tlie  principal.', that-;half^-af/hinf^is ^jetter  thun'.n6"bread, the'best cowse'to- pur-,  sue woulel seein to be to prevent the  Dominion nppioprint ion' lapsing altogether hy tusking, Mr. Bostock to lay  the matter before^ Mr. Tiu-te anel try  to get the appropriation made unconditional. Then if the p**cple of Revelstoke do not know; when the time  comes, how to'tleal -with the government, which has so - shamefully le-It  them in the lurch, all The Herald  can say is that they deserve all  the kicks they have got from it in the  past aud are .likely to get in the future.  MR.  BOSTOCK INTERVIEWED.  The Questions of the River: Bank,  Townsite, the Upper RiverjandJ Post  Office Discussed.  At a meeting hold in the Union  Hotel on Siitm-iliiy afti'rnoon between  Mr. Bostock and the board.' of trade  several matters of vital interest to  this place were taken tip. With regard to the question of protecting the  river hank here' Mr. Bostock saul he  had seen Mr. Turner anil tlie latter  did not consider that it. was binding  on the province to elo anything. Mr.  Tartu had written Mr. Turner on the  subject but; bael received no answer.  Mr. Bostock did hot' think 'that the  Dominion Government could very  well he'askeel tei elei tlio whole work,  but he would see Mr'.' Tartu as soon as  he got. to Ottawa. He had told Mr.  Turner that if something was not dune  this year, there w'ould be 'no townsite  left tei protect. The* money had been  appropriate.el for the work of cleaning  the upper river at the canon and the  work should he coninienceil at once.  He had sent a telegram to Ottawa the  night before calling the. intention of  the authorities to the ma'tter.  i In reference to the title eif the town-  site Mr. Ebert had staled to him . that  the provincial government required  the agreements from Fai-well before  they could go on, which had not been  sent in except-hi four cases. He hail  seen Mr. Farwedl; in Nelson and ho  could not understand what the provincial government had to do with  any title except his own. A proper  map had also to he forwarded from  Ottawa, and fyleei and he would see  .that it was sent. It was pointed out  to Mr. Bostock that the Ottawa  authorities held a number of the  grants belonging to Revelstoke property owners, and Mr. Ahrahamsoh  promised to. furnish, a list of them.  'Also thatrii number of tlie original  holders were dead or scattered all over,  the "world and that a large portion  e>f the original townsite was in the  river. If property owners hael to wait  until the history of every holding  was cleared up to the satisfaction of  the government, the ques':  Hon would never lie settled at all.  Theques'tioh of the confusion arising from there being two post offices,  named so nearly alike and so e-leiso together, brought up a long discussion  in the course of which several sugges-  tions'we're, made, the most feasible of  which seemed'to be an exfra'trip, on  -th'e.'partj6f.'the.mail carrier. ���������_ ' *-  ^Ir.'Bos.toek' promised., to look into  theiiiri.t'terof.the survey, of the" Dotni-  hion Ipnds dowu." .the .river and Itlje.  .lmai*d:wi������hdi"i_.v lifter passing a vote of-  thanks; for the 'ceiurtesy"~with- -which  their complaints had been considered.

Mining ^is .not confined to West  Kootenay'alone. AVe learn on very  good authority that. Messrs.

Donald's popular songstress,  Mrs. Pitts, sang "Mavourneen" in her  usual pleasant manner, and was rapturously encored, but owing to hei  name being em the 'programme for  two other songs, she was excuseel.

The bye-  elections in Quebec will be fought out  wholly on the school question.  The Patrons of Industry are now in  session here. They will demand Cun-  aeliaii legislation for the regulation of  railway rates'similar to the Interstatu  Commerce law.  Ottawa, Feb. 2k���������It is said that  there is trouble in the Ministerial  camp at. Ottawa over the revision of  the*, tariff, anel that the party for tariff for revenue only is not likely to be  in evidence, when the finished.'-work  appears.  An important meeting of the Cahi-  net.^is calle-el for Thurselay to consider  the building of the C-iow's Nest Pass  Railway. The Canadian Pacific are  putting forward great efforts to get  the work., and 'are being opnoseel  by the'se who favor the roail being  built by the government.'  JTIiere appears no likelihood of any  assistance to the railway from Knot-:  enay to the coast being granted, the  government not regarding the; project"  iis of an importance equal to the Crow's  Nest road.

Experience   lias    shown     tluit    the  power of control may bo exercised  mi as to benelit the railway as well  ns its customers.    Kor example, iu  eine of the reports of the Iowa railway  commission   it was    shown  1 hat   with   the  curtailing  of rebates, secret rates, freo pusses and  other special privileges which the  few enjoyed at the expense ot the  many  there had followed steady  rates and increased revenues iiiori*  than sufficient to make up lor any  nirliciency caused by reductions of-  local rates .   And while the   rail-'  ways actually   benelitteel instead  <>t' losing by the reform, there was  ii   notable   development   of    the  home, industry of Iowa.   The farmer got his supplies cheaper, his  lumber, coal, salt and other heavy  commodities   at  fair   rates,     fie  liiunil   a    market for a portion of  his surplus corn, out*-, hay, wood,  timber, etc.,  at home  nnd   saved  transportation.        lie     marketed  Imgs in  Iowa packing-houses and  saved   freight   charges.     "Wood  and   logs that lay   in the   timber  ) eittintr. the Iowa rates arc making  a market for; anil new  mills  are  {sawing  the   latter up. for use ii),  excelsior, fencing pickets, handles,  boxes   and   other    industries  unknown before. The railway policy  of the long haul has, in a measure,  been     supplanted     by   the   new  system.  (*nilan  exchange ol pro?  rltict-*   between different parts  of  1 lie State  is one of the commendable results.   Hay and corn from  northern   Iowa are   now  sold  at  better prices in the dairy counties  of eastern and  southers Iowa   iu  large quantities,  a thing hitherto  unknown."  The railway eompanie.** tire nob  altogether to"blame for the heavy  rates of transportation that prevail in that part of Canada.

But  isiey might be instrumental in  removing a,J>" inequalities and  injustices which are now inflicting  injury on shippers.

And "Impregnable Position" May Eventually Secure for it What it Wants  ���������Reduced Rates on all Lines to be  Insisted   on    by    the   Government  Ottawa,'February.-17.���������Mr. TV G.  Shaiighnessy, vice "president of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, had another conference with the Ministers in  Hon. Mr. Blair's office regarding the  British Columbia Railway matters.  Mr. Shaughnossy presented strong  reasons why the Government should  not pledge itself te> the construction of  an independent line, from the coast to  Lcthbridgc, and that such n. road, it  built, woulel be powerless without the  co-operation eif tho Canadian'Pacific,  and that, there would not he business  enough for two companies.'  Wixxii'i.'c;, February li).���������The following despatch in the Free Press (C.  P. It. iirgan) seems significant: Mowab,  Blair and Sifton have been appointed  ,-i sub-committee of the Council to  grapple with the question of IheCiow's  Nest Pass Railway anil will hold their  first meeting loclav. Your correspondent sees no reason to withdraw from  .the statement made some days ago  that tlie Canadian Pacilic will be given a charter for the road, which will  be. conditional upon a general reduction in both local ano throucli freight  rates on all their lines. There's ample  room through the Crow's Nest Pass-  for two lines. But competent authorities aver that if two charters were  granted neither company would bo  likely to meet with success in Heating  its bonds, except with great elilU-  culty. Certainly the Canadian Pacific, powerful though that corporation  be, would he hampered in making  financial arrangements if it were  known that another company had another charter over the same route.  Very shortly there will be developments and the lmblic will learn, as  your correspondent learned, how  impregnable is the 0. P. R. in this  matter and in the event, of their meeting Blair's views in the matter of  freight rates the. Government cannot  hut realize that no other company can  so successfully build the Crow's Nest  Railway as tlie great transcontinental  company.

It is duo to a deiicient secretion  of gastric juico dependent upou lho  congested state of the peptic glands  and the choking of the littlo duets  with muscles. The great abundance of mocus also interf.res with  the action of tho gastric juice by  rendering it alkaline and by  coaling over the-lood. It is not so  fatal in itself, but liko all other  foims of indigestion makes tlio  system an easy victim for. other  aud fatal diseases.. Consumption  very frequently follows Catarrh of  the Stomach.  Causes: Long continued acidity,  dietitic errors, excessive use of  drugs, alcohol, ten, colfeo and  tobucco.  Treatment*. This disease is so  obstinate - that a speedy cure is out  of tho (juestiou, none but quacks  make any such claims.    ~  After     each     meal    two     of  Simpson's Kidney  Pills  should be taken and this course  followed- persistently will remove  the trouble, but it cannot be done  in a week or two, and patients  must make up their minds to this  self evident truth. The principal  cause of Catarrh of tho Stomach is  deiicient gastric juice and Simpson's  Kidney l'ills always increase the  How of gastric juice. Catarrh of thu  Stomach is curable and so far no  more rational or successful remedy  has been " known than Simpson's  Kidney Pills.

The, Edmonton Bulletin is m receipt  of a very interesting letter from C. M.  Woodworth, barrister, late of Edmonton, now of Brandon, a new city  ���������in the Slocan District, under date of  January. HO.     Mr.  Woodworth   says:  I have at last emletl my travolsin  British Columbia and am si*tUec*i here.  'This is a larger place than Slocan City  iit present anil the\ are about a  e.uarter of a mile apart. As Slocan  City has the larger site 1 think it will  have the larger boom. The place is  more talketl of in Kootenay than any  other. At present, however, it is  very dull.  I have been in Revelstoke. Nakusp,  Now .Denver. Sandon, Kaslo. Nelson,  Norlhport, Salmon Sidinp, Kossland  and   Trail,   and   found    all   thriving.  Kvvclstnku hits a great future  Sandon is in tho centre of .morn rich  mines than any town in the. Dominion.  No one will ever make it their  residence except, for business An  enormous aiuoimb of Edmonton  produce will continue* to lie used there.  It will be ii: mining camp,not a city.  New Denver Is prosperous and  progressive*. ,It. is not over done in  any line. It may become a city. The  railway and boats have sidetracked it  so far.v. I".'doubt if they can continue  to do so. 11 is the seat of Govcrument  offices for Slocan.  Kaslo cannot fail to he prosperous.  Up the Kaslo nnd Slocan Railway to  Sandon, a large string of rich mines  look to it for supplies.' The stores are  ���������much finer, numerous and better  supplied than those ot any other  .  Slocan town.    Morally it is a sink.  Nelson is steadily prosperous. There  idoes, not, seem to be so much of the  :.: boom 'and gouge element as elsewhere.  Geographically I cannot see why ib  should he so", important. Bub the  Government and the Canadian"Pacific  K:iilwav make it their Kootenay  Headeiuarlers. The Nelson and Fort  Sheppard road made straight for ii.  No one dreams of the Crow's Ne>st  1 oad sidetracking it. Loan companies,  are. willing to invest in it, wholesale'  houses locate there, and men who  wish a sure tiling invest there. Why?  Numerous other sites would serin  more convenient, more suitable for  junctions and more certainly in the  : line of travel.  Salmon Siding is booming. Rich  prospects are reported near. Lots are  selling high. Trail and Rossland  parties arc engineering the deals. At  present only a few* barn looking  shacks are standing there. It may  : he all right.  No working man should go to  liosshuid. Men are there asking for  meals. '"' Besides it is. swarmed from  Wash inc. to ti. ''All around.lie immense  quantities of low grade ote. Hub few  of the mines can at present stand  transportation and smelter charges.  Ininy opinion Rossland's future hangs  on tlie Crow's Nest Railway and coal,  the general cheapening - of transportation and smelter charges, and the  continued inlluv. oT capital for  development." Tho terrible hardness  ol! the) rock and tlie low grade of most  ores makes this uo poor man's camp.  Some specialists praise the. Rossland  district very highly, while others  condemn unsparingly. Throughout  the rest of Kootenav, Rossland and  Spokane boom methods hear lhe taint  ol suspicion. I fear Unit many an  eastern investor will remember the  name "Rosslanil" with sadness. This  much is certain. Tho few great mines  around it probably secure if, from  retrogression, ami the great, number  of prospects anil low grades probably  assure it. progress. At present it is a  financial centre,.whine slocks an; lirst  to be had in Kootenay, and tho Mecca  of every aelveiilitrer into the  Kootenay. However, :is a stock  market it is outileuie by Spokane, even  for Kootenay slock-*.  Trail has a great smelter. Ilein/.e,  the C. P. R. and others think it will  have more. One railway now. tups it  and the Columbia Hows past. it. Other  railways seem probable. As a smelting, commercial anel railway town  I am inclined to place it high' for the  future.  -Edmonton seems lo have captured  tlie oat market, en- lei he at leasi a  very successful competitor, as far  south as Trail. ���������  V. lhirns dot's the largest beef trade  in'.'the'Kootenay.- Soiillu.rn Alberta  is sure of Ibis trade, lb also will supply a great nuuihorof horses, and, perhaps nearly all, it present duty is kept  on and transportation lowered.  Edmonton vegetables do not have  the market. They cannot hope to, not,  because they aro not high class, nm,  because of the 0. P. It., bub  tlie exporters do not understand their  business and won't learn.  Regarding Edmonton hacon and  hams. These two fncts are spoken of  everywhere: Edmonton packers do  not understand curing. Their meat  appears shrunken. It is too salt.  Miners do not wish to parboil.  Edmonton prairie- hay is nob wanted,  or only at a reduced price. Blue joint  will be taken at a higher prive, but  timothy is what is needed.  My remarks on vegetables will, perhaps, apply with variations to'elairy  products. But Manitoba and North  West Territories creamery seems to  have a good foothold.  In general the. miner and prospector  who pack their supplies up mountains  for miles, know what they want and  will not forgive a dealer who gives  them something else. Price is no object. The local dealers understand  this. Edmonton dealers do not, and  perhaps tire surprised that the first  order .from Kootenay litis been the  last. Had that one order been satisfactory other orders would have followed" and prices would nob now have  been bantered about. Study the Kootenay trade. Eill each order exactly.  Never substitute; it will not he forgiven. Organize, and continue to supply tlie exact article required at short  notice witheiub fail. Variation in the  prices at Edmonton amounts to a  small percentage of thu cost when the  gooels are landed live or six miles up  the mountains from the nearest railway.

A. Brown' introduced a motion in favor of immediate incorporation, seconded by Mr. Lang. An  amendment to the elfect that the  movement was premature, was moved  Iiy Mr. Sam; Needham,: and seconded  by Mr. Gorman. The speakers in  favor eif incorporation were the mover  and seceiiiiler, anil Messrs. Bourne, E.  A. Hiiggon. Eraser, Pease and Dr. Mc-  Kechnie. Tho arguments advanced,  were the necessity of a sewage system  anel road improvement, and the" fact  that the government is taking about  $3,400 in taxes out of town and spending about $300 in 'improvements in ('return. The speakers against incorporation were Messrs. Needham, Peterson, W. M. Brown. T. L. Haig. H. N.  Coursier, and J. Ahrahniiisnn. These  speakers urged that the movement was  premature, that the title, to the town-  site should first be ���������secured, and., the  province held to its promise to de> its  share of protection to the river bank.  After a lengthy discussion, a vote wis  taken, Which stooel: a-s follows : For  im-orporation. II: against. 31.  .Mr. Haifr. seconded--by Mr. R. S.
