Lardeau, Lardo, Lardeau Creek,  Tjiirdo River, Lardo Recording 'District in red I And to mix the thing up  wore the ininers'Lardeau is1 in Trout  Lake district." If the* government liad  del ilie*rately gone to .work to mystify  people they, could not have ..done it.  hotter than they have with-.the map  issued under the supervision of the  Chief ,'00111111188101161* of Lands and  Works at Victoria, and the mystification is totally unnecessary. ,.The  naine.Ltirtleau was given to the river  called the Lardo on the map and the  Irike called 'TroufLake by an early  French 'Canadian pioneer prospector  In that district. Bye and bye {hename  of the lake became altered- from ��������� the  riunrbers of trout, in it to Trout Lake,  iiiul'two townsites sprung into a brief  existence, Lardeau on the North "Arm  of. Arrow. Lake, -and 'Lardo- at,, the  lippei'end of Kootenay Lake, near the  spot where the combined Duncan ,and\  lower -Lardo (so called)- flow together  into���������the. lake, both-.tei'wnsitesi, being  named by owners, anxious, to f"clpth  their.' properties with "the prestige  which the known wealth of the', Lardeau River would, confer em anything  even 'if only 'connected with it 'by  name.'' To heighten the illusion in'the  case'-of Liirdeau ' Townsite,' a'small  affluent flowing into Fish-Creek on  the west side lie.-ir ' the mouth, was  named*Lardeau Creek. Then in-the  division into'districts the upper.Lar-  "deati .fell ,to* Trout .Lake, the'.lower  Liirdeau to Ainsworth, and the" Lardeau district had to ' be content, with  the townsite. A* more 'careless anel  abstucl almse of the privilege,.. of  notiie'ncliiture'possesbed by tKe'gbver-  ihent of a new country has been .rarely seen. . -. '.- -' '"��������� ������'  - .However Writing Lardeau in red; or  black' ink' on a* map'cannot in the  nature, of things prove* of any particular permanent benefit to the localities  thus honored. 'The Great._Northern,  the.Silver Cup_and������ other j.well-.knoWli:  Lardeau'leads 'are-'still' to vbe.- found  .where nature piit'them 'oh'- the- banks  of the -old original . upper Laideau  river,'unci the rising townsiies of Liirdeau and Lardo'have revetted to their  original'obscurity as part, of, the primeval ''wilderness. This b'ping the  case there seems to'be no"inecessity to  perpetuate this mystification, since  there is nobody with the the slightest  interest in'keeping.it up. .-The town-  sites of Lardeau and Lardo can dis--  iippear_ft'0in=.the^mai),_together_with  Liirdeau Creek,* and the real Lardeau  river receivesMts'prciper. tittle as the  upper Liirdeau above Trout Lake and  the lower Lardea.i below it,-while that  grotesque absurdity ."Lardo" can he  consigned to oblivion altogether. =Then  if the Lardeau .recording district,  which its we h-ivc shewn is outside of  the real Lardeau mining .country altogether, received the name of the  Fish Creek district; from tbe section  traversed hy that creek in and near  which most of the principal discoveries  in that district have so fur been made,  the official map of Kootenay would be  cleared of a great deal of totally unnecessary anel wholly nonsensical mystification. ,, "  ination so obtained will be regarded as  strictly confidential and the returns  compiled from tlie' schedules will be  published in the aggregate only.

He  followed tlie river all the way down  and made the 'trip in two days. "He  met Jas. Macfarlane and party going  up on Friday,' four miles below Boyd's  ranch.

Oth February, 1837.  James Kelly.  '   NO.TE AND COMMENT.  Mgr. del Val, papal delegate to Canada sailed from Liverpool.on Saturday  for New York. In an interview he  said : - -   '   .'  "The billed passed by the Manitoba  Legislature, embodying the Laurier  anel Greenway compromise, comes to  mo as a painful surprise, as'it can  hardly act favorably towards the  settlement of the question to wliich I  am addi-eessing myself. I think it was  due to the Pope to have waited until I  had time to place before the government the Pope's views and wishes."  However "painfully surprised" Mgr.  del Val may be at the presumption  displayed by the Manitoba Legislature  in proceeding with the business of the  province without awaflting bis august  arrival, we can assure him that he is  not a'bit more so than a good many  other people are getting to lie.

The party of  eight carpenters came up from Rose-  berry last week from the C. P. R. ship  yard there to assist in the work.  The C.P.R. are putting in a new  wharf for unloading barges. Mr.  Perry, chief engineer, is superintending the work.  P.

Bureau of statistics is  endeavoring to arrive at an estimate  of the volume of inter-provincial trade  lietween this province and the rest of  the Dominion, an undertaking which  would no doubt be of great value, if  carried out satisfactorily, to the business men of the province. With this  in view they have prepared a schedule  asking for information under six or  seven heads to be filled up by the merchants of the province, t'* each of  whom a copy will be sent.

Mr. Staubert is an old  time Liirdeau prospector and The  Herald congratulates him on the  disposal of his property for such a  good price.  of  wood, water and., accessibility..

MARCH   21,    ISO".  EA STERN INDIFFERENCE  AND WESTERN PROGRESS  IE some lecturer in nn Eastern  "hall were to lay down the proposition that the hope of Canadian  prosperity lay-in great measure in  the future of tlio Western portion  of the Dominion, he would perhaps  *\vell tho bosoms of his hearers  ���������with nn emotion akin to patriotic  ���������pride, and they would return to  .their homes feeling themselves the  proud co-partners in great possi-  Ijilities. But if he were to go on  itud tell his eastern audieiice. that  clhey should grudge no material  Kacrifice to accelerate the advancement ot of the West, tho feeling  of emotion would - almost certainly give way to a shock of  annoyance, such as an elder brother sustains when his noody  younger brother makes application Iioiu a distant land for pecuniary aid on the ground of ill success in the past and hopeful prospects for the future if only sufii-  cienfc funds are forthcoming to  help him to bring them to fruition.  As a rule the .prayer of the iui-  * peeuuiou s one is coldly received  .������ud    he     is *   reoomnionded     in  , .terms of the old adage "to cut his  ���������itoat according to his cloth." This  4"Iass   of  advice,   while   affording  , _nuch satisfaction to the giver, has  II correspondingly irritating effect  on the recipient, whoso chief difficulty  is the   absence  of  suitable  cuttiug appliances. .  1 The above simile is   not at all  "_'ar fetched with regard to the  " jjositiem taken by the eastern  provinces towards the West. The  .eastern men claim that much has  ���������already been done for the West  and that they still being taxed to  ���������make provision for tho needs of  their own provinces, and thes'  ���������grudge any increased expenditure  III this    direction,   being  unable  ~^-fTirpareutly-to   see auS'7_resiilting  "return.  This shortsighted policy is due  either to a want of appreciation  .nr of knowledge of the capabilities  of tho Western country. The  vlistance between, is bridged over,  it is true, by the C. P. _t., but how  i'ew persons avail themselves of  This means of communication  ���������unless business reasons require it?  The result is that the mass of  o.istern people derive their knowledge of the West either from  ������������������novels, drummers or from some  journal which gives its own views,  ���������irrespective of accuracy of detail,  rl'or its own particular purpose.  It may now be stated incontro-  . vertibly that British Columbia is  ������ine or the richest, if not thk  3 ichest, Held in the world for the  ���������production of gold, silver, copper  and various other precious minerals just as the North West Territories, and notably Alberta, are  eminently adapted for grazing  and stoekraising. These Western  provinces are in great measure,  o.ving to their position and sur-  rmuding.s, limited to seek their  Tvealth directly or indirectly from  tie soil itself, either by the production of grain, by cattle and  ��������� liorse breeding, or by availing  themselves- of their great mineral  resource. On the other hand the  older provinces in the east have  r. lanufactories already firmly  established aud from the advantages of position and surroundings, these manufactories may  be still further extended. They  lave, for the reasons above given,  ro reaeon to fear Western competition in the matter of manufacturing industries, while they have  everything to gain by the establishment of markets in the West  f ir the consumption of eastern  } roducts which could be paid for  I thsr in specie or iu kin4 accord  ing to  the  requirements of  the  east.  To effect this exchange of commodities ib is of the highest  importance that rates and charges  for transit and intercommunication should be based on such a  modorate tariff as to make it  difficult for alien manufacturers  or producers who may be situated  nearer to tho markets requiring  supplies to successfully compete  with our own manufacturers or  producers.  Theso facts and arguments aro  so solf evident that the apathy  and even tho opposition of the  east to schemes for tho development of the West are all the moro  amazing. Our neighbours south  of the lino havo not been slow to  seize the golden opportunity now  presented to them with the result  that thoy have been continuously  supplying the demauds of British  Columbia, who in return has been  sending them ore in almost fabulous quantities for treatinont.  The moral to bo deduced from  these facts is that Canada, if she  desires to take her proper place  in the front rank of nations, must  increase and facilitate her means  of intercommunication, particularly as regards her Western  possessions. It is futile to say  "wait until che population "justifies  the expenditure." As well tell a  boy not to go into the water until  he has learned to swim.  Inability to appreciate tacts, or,  in other words, to size up the  situation, is a frequent source of  disaster for nations ascit is for  individuals. A well-known instance of this occurred shortly  after the tragedy on Majuba Hill,  when the Boers having asserted  the independence of the Transvaal. Mr. Gladstone was being  urged to take steps to avenge the  defeat and to re-assert British  rule. His reply on that occasion  was to this effect:��������� "If tha Transvaal were as rich in its resources  as it is valueless I would nob counsel Her Ma.'esty to continue such a  war." Whether it was the'sup-  posed worthlessness of the prize,  or higher motives which actuated  the eminent statesman, it is not  for us to divine, bub the first  ground, utterly erroneous as it  has since proved to be, no doubt  received full weight in the conclusions ultimately arrived at.  Let Canada make no such mistake. Wealth and prosperity lie  at her doors. It is for her only to  reach nut her hand and thoy are  hers, bub the reaching out must be  complete and effective, requiring  perhaps some sacrifice of her resources, but quite disproportionate to the object to be attained.  Let her not hesitate or vacillate in  this matter, lest while she is deliberating, another and an alien  ha"hd lays hold on and possesses  itself of her heritage.  ^-JCotwithstanding���������the^euormous  amount of puffing in connection  with the war scare wheat didn't  respond worth a cent.  ~\Ii\ Laurier announces that the  Government; is being "held up*, for  fifty millions of dollars for proposed public improvement?. In a  country like ours there are improvements on whicli enormous  sums of money might be advantageously expended, but'the duty  of the statesman is to expend  public money with careful discrimination-��������� not to refuse to  spend what is necessary because  he is asked for what is unnecessary. If he would only follow the  principle adopted at election time  and place the people's money  "where it will do the most good,"  there will be no further doubt as  to the construction of the Crow's  Nest roael.  THE LAST WORD  Parliament will assemble for the  transaction of public business on  Thursday next, and the result of  its  deliberations with  regard   to  Western railway construction will  be awaited with  intense interest  by the farming community, who  after many years of weary waiting,  are now almost  in  sight  of  the  land of promise.   It is sincerely to  bu hoped that the main issue will  uot be lost sight ol in the perusal  of tho   ignorant    and   impudent  statements which have appeared  on the subject  in maiiy  Ontario  newspapers.     Tho   .second    rato  press of Ontario, which hopes .to  strike a sympathetic chord .by tin  appeal for so-called economy so as  to save the pocket of the Ontario  taxpayer, describes that province  ns"    tho    "milch    cow"    of    the  Dominion,   which   provides    the  capital for  every   public    work,  wheresoever constructed.   Rot of  this description, written in boundless ignorance, of course loses its  point when applied tc a province  like British*Columbia, which pays  vastly more into the Federal exchequer   than  she receives in  return, or to the North West Territories,  whicli are even  now ��������� the  pivot   on which   rests the  future  prosperity of the whole Dominion.  At the same time one cannot help  deploring the gross ignorance of  the  West,   of its  resources,   capabilities    and advantages  which  prevails   amongst tho .lournalists  of Ontario, a class of men who are  generally supposed to be at .least  familiar   with   the    country    in  which thoy  live.     Thoso gentlemen who have taken the trouble  to cotne and   examine the- West  for    themselves   have    returned  home thoroughly converted to its  cause,  and enlisted on its behalf.  The members of the Cabinet and  others who have visited the mining districts in British Columbia  and examined   the   farming    resources of Alberta,    hare    been  satisfied  beyond a  doubt if  the  absolute  necessity   for    through  communication between the Territories   and   tho     great    country  which lies beyond tlie mountains.  The Hon. A. G. Blair, who  holds  the Railway portfolio in the Cabinet, only three months ago, after  a careful study of tbe situation,  told  his hearers  iii the  Calgary  Opera Hull    that   "He  had  just  spent    four    or   livo    weeks    in  British Columbia, and ib was there  he   hael   been called ou   to  more  especially consider   the need     of  railway  construction.     He    had  been led to believe that until there  was a  progressive policy adopteel  regarding railway  competition in  B. C.  those  immense,    auriferous  fields  will   never    be   fully    developed.     He had visited several  mining   camps   in   B. C.   and   believed  that promising   as is   the  outlook in   Rossland, the  Slocan  and East.Kootenay. those did not  by anv means embrace the whole  area  of valuable   mineralized deposits.   The    whole   province   of  British Columbia contained   rich  mineral   fields as-yet    unknown.  who have already made their  homes in the West, in justice to  the thousands of others who may  yet find suitable homes in this  great country, in justice to the  Dominion of Canada, the Government should attend to this matter  without a moment's, delay. Mr.  Laurier today holds the future of  the West, aud with it the future  of Canada in his baud, and should  take every possible precaution to  prevent ulterior considerations  from interfering with tho manifest  duty which   he owes to the  couutry at large.  ���������Calgary Herald.  Sir William Van Home has been  frequently charged with "wanting  the earth," but he seems to have  corralled tho Globe all right  enough.  The result of the wholesale  arrests Jof deputy returning officers in the constituency of Mac-,  donald, which was the cause of  much virtuous indignation on tho  part of tho Winnipeg Tribune at  tho time, 'cannot afford that  journal much satisfaction. Eighteen ar"ests in all were made: Six  cases wore dropped by the prosecution, there being no evideuce at  all to go upon. Seven others were  thrown out by the Justices at the  preliminary enquiry. One case  was thrown out by the grand  jury, and in two cases tlie jury  disagreed. One defendant was  acquitted by a jury, and only one  man, Saunders, was found guilty.  This man admitted that at the  solicitation of Freeborn, the star  witness for the Crown, he initnlled  blank ballots for Freeborn,' to enable that worthy gentlemen to  extort money from the Conservative Committee at Carberry, of  which money Saunders was to  have a share. When the total  cost of the prosecution is made  public the taxpayers of Manitoba  will have an opportunity of marking their appreciation of.the success of their Attorney General in  spending their money for the purpose of attempting to make political capital.  AMERICAN  THE VICTORY WAS   GAINED BY  A HARD STRUGGLE  CHANGE IN HIS APPEARANCE  Are You Going to Build  this season?  you should  Consult-  If so  The postage stampsonow in use  throughout the Dominion are  undoubtedly of a very poor kind  and were it not for the impression  of Her Majesty's features, would  seem to be rather bad value for  the money. The action of the  postmaster general, who has  decided to pay a nice compliment  to royalty on the occasion of the  diamond jubilee by the issue of a  limited issue of three cenc stamps  of a pretty design,will be endorsed  by the public. At the same time  it is respectfully suggested that  some permanent improvement is  needed in the present dpsign, more  especially in the case of the one  cent stamp, which frequently  looks in outline and colour like the  impression made by a cigarette  smoker's thumb. The flavour of  the gum at present in use has also  become a little monotonous to the  'epicurean palate of the Canadian  office boy, who would dearly like  a change.  What the West really wanted was  railroads." The Hon. Mc. Tarte,  another Minister of the Crown,  who had also made a peisonal examination of the countrji-, was  just as explicit in his belief in the  West and the necessity for railroad development. No sane man  has ever j'et vi-jited the West  who eioes not hold similar  opinions to tho������e which have  been expressed . by these gentlemen. Therefore let there bo no  further question as to the necessity for construction. The roael  must be built .nnd at once���������it is  for the Government to say how- it  shall be built���������but the road we  must have. The Government has  promised it, and Government  -supporters have staked their  political lives upon that promise.  "The development of the West"'  has proved a popular bait with  which to catch votes, and many  votes were polled in the Territories and in British Columbia it  the general election for the party  which, in the West at all events,  was raised into power on the  distinct pledge of a policy,, of  active railroad development. A  great deal , has been said of the  latest " vigorous immigration  policy" inaugurated by Mr. Sifton,  but all the immigration policies  that man may conceive and all  the immigration agents that man  may appoint will be but so much  waste of time and money unless  the settlers in the Territories are  provided with a means of taking  their goods to that market.whieh  seems to have been provided for  them by a merciful Providence.  Tn justice to the citizens of Canada  as    well   as  of   other  countries,  The Government has decided not to  hear anv further delegations in regard  to the tai lit".

When the defeated champion finally  arose, with the assistance of his attendants, and recovered himself sufficiently from his dazed condition to  realize the calamity that had befallen  him, he broke out with all the fury of  an enraged animal and, discarding all  the rules of prize fighting, rushed at  his victorious opponent and made a  vuin struggle to beat him over the  ropes, only desisting when his own  seconds and friends forced him away.

London, March 10.���������Tho popular  opinion in Greece, says the .Times'  correspondent at Athens, demands an  early declaration of war with Turkey.  The idea is that Europe would then be  compelled to adopt a neutral attitude.  It is argued that the Greek fleet could  conquer the islands in the Aegean,  including tho Samoas, while the  Greek army assisted by insurgent  bands could soon over run Macedonia.  * , GREECE IS  READY.  The Athens correspondent of the  Daily Chronicle declares that Greece  has set her back against the wall and  is prepared-for'tbe worst. The commencement of tho . blockade of the  Greek ports would bo instantly the  signal for hostilities on tho frontier  not because of any decision of .King  George or his cabinet, 'but solely  because of the resentment of tho army,  WILL TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE,  It was understood in'tlie lobbies of  the House of Commons 'that Sir  William Harcourt .will shortly . take  up Hon.

Athens, March 1<.��������� It is generally  believed here that nothing can prevent war nnd the government has its  plan of campaign already prepared.  The cabinet had a long session yesterday us to the attitude to bo taken in  the face of tho coercive programme of  Europe, and it i3 reported that a decision whs reached*to take active  measures as being the only solution  possible for Greece. Tho centre of interest is now transferred from Crete  to the Macedonian frontier. It is evident from the haste which the government has displayed in getting all its  available troops off by sea before the  commencement of the blockade that  there is a strong conviction that they  will he needed at once. Troops must  be taken over land and this would be  an exceedingly slow and difficult process owing to the lack of horses and  the very incomplete road system in  the northern portions of Greece.  Many war correspondents have already arrived at Volo, Larissa and  other frontier points.  London, March 18.���������The secretary  of the Byron Society has received a  telegram from Athens stating that  the Sultan had offered to withdraw  the Turkish garrison from Crete and  assign the Island to King Georr/e tei  be occupied and administered by  Greece with recognition of tbe  imperial suzerainty of the Sultan  taking the form of an annual tribute.  * CONDITION CRITICAL.

Symptoms and  Results  A tongue with fissures shows  kidney derangement of long  standing.  When tho gums are obscured  and recede from the teetb, running  sores on any part of the body, ears  discharging, inflamed eyelids, salt  rheum, 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 in 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.  Bright's disease and diabetes,  opposite conditions, have their  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 perspiration, are abnormal  conditions caused by' abnormal  kidneys.  c- Varicocele, varicoso . veins and  milk leg eriginate in defective  kidneys.  Curvature of the spine, in dd or  young, and gout are caused hy  deposits from the 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. Paralysis of half or  the whole-body.may have its first  cause in the kidneys.    ,  We see here quite a' formidable  array, of troubles which may be  originated or - fostered by these  prominent, organs of. excretion and  and we 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.

'  THAT BIG MINING GRAB.  Toronto, March 19.���������The aupp}e<  mentary return relative to the deal  made by the Government-with the  Engledue syndicate was presented to  the Legislature Tuesday by John J. M.  Gibson. It contains the correspondence which took place between July  8, when Colonel Engledue first made  approaches to the Government, and  December I", when the deal was  practically closed. It would appear  that Hardy,' at the " outset. was  very dubious regarding -the wisdom  of the deal, and ��������� thought the  syndicate should be y f content  with a less area.'���������; of territory,'-- and  should put up a deposit of forty or fit tjr  thousand dollars more than the syndicate had offered. To this, however.  Colonel Engledue and his associates  were not inclined to agree, and it is  not improbable the deal would have  fallen through, had not J. K. Kerr,  Q. C, appeared on the scene and proffered his gooel offices on behalf of the  syndicate.

To the EoiToit of Tin-: Hekai.ii:  Siii,���������You   will   kindly   allow    me  space in one of your columns of your  paper.   Now,  I am gl.icl  to see,.that  "Observer" hits got  those gentlemen  aroused from their slumber by hinting  to thorn about the Witter and Electric  Company, who are seeking incorporation and by so gel ting the  ceinveii'ers  of   the last meeting to express their  ideas for such ad vocation of the above  cause, but. Sir, would it nothave been  more honorable for those wire" pullers  to have got up in   that  last   meeting  and stated   plainly that their  idea, of  speedy incorporation was to steip such  company  from   rcceivintr   a  charter.  But   no, they, never   mooted  it and if  that is their main object for  boing  so  obdurate 'it   is   a poor paltry'oxemsc.  Why   did   not  those   gentlemen 'get  together  and   call   the  ratepayers to  public meetings before our representative   had   gone   to   his   duties'and ho  could have explained lo them all about  those  other    places  that are  getting  incorporation?     But.   Sir.   it    never  came   into   their   heads   to  come out"  publicly,   till   they* thought  that the  'ratepayers would "he ro])cd'in by wire,  pulling that would- he  in   their favor.'  Sir. they ha.ve not came forward with'  any argumenl.yet showing what disadvantages there would bo  in getting  inLo a municipality at first,; anel after-  waids* the   benefits   that/   would .lie?  derived   from   it   in   the near future.  Sir. I see by "Canadian'" that the uninvited guests were supposed, by his  argument, to have taken  up <lhe_ .sub:  je'ct and shew the"good and bad causes,  for incorporation.    But, Sir, to let the  public see that the   ratepayer s,did not  go   there   to   explain the far  shining  lights that thoy scciucil   to   see* at a  groat distance, hut not  having  brains  enough   to   collect   their   ideas,  they  could not explain  the object  of,."the  meeting,���������as   we   were    told   by   the  chairman that thoy   would  bring forward facts and figures.    But  we  have  not heard them ctune forward  with  ti  single .figuio - either   wayHyet;'"eiiily  trying to copy some figures"'from the  company which is now seeking  incorporation   anil   using    their   influence  wiul*.   the   ratep.-iyeiSi to shew   theni  what nr. awful stale of all'airs it seems  to   them, O'.'.t. their schemes  will   not  work   that   way.    I   am   sorry to see  that poor-single   i,"it������n.iyer  that  Ihey  have   corralled. , Poor    fellow,   if   he  follows their advice he will   never get  any more knowledge of the case.   Now  Sir, "'Canadian'" also states that soti.e  hael better take   Carter's   Little Liver  pills, but  Sir, if he  has   any common  wits  ahout  hint   I  would  advise him  to take a bottle of  Ceitl   Liver oil.
