THE DIAMOND JUBILEE.  Will-in the next two months the  inhabitants of the Empire will be ccle*-  brnting in various ways the close of  the GOth year of the glorious reign of  Her Majesty, Queen .Victoria. It "is  not necessary for the Herald to  dwell on the joyful nature of this'  solemn occasion or to explain the  reasons why loyal subjects all over  the world are looking forward to June  22nd next with the keenest anticipation. These things, are patent to all  and are felt by all. As round the  habitable globe the British drums and  bugles salute the rising sun on that  clay, their reveille will everywhere  arouse* a people with whom during her  long and eventful reign reverence and  affection for their sovereign has become a feeling of passionate loyalty,  the less talked about, as is the  way with the race, the deeper it' is  felt. This fee-ling has deepened anel  widened even in the ten years, which  have elapsed since the celebration of  the Golden Jubilee in 1SS7. In those  ten years the bonds, which unite the  colonies to the-mother country have  been drawn closer and strengthened  most considerably. Great Britain has  learnt to recognize the value of .her  colonial empire as she never did before  and tlie response to her good will has  been of the heartiest on the part of  colonies. - But all "through her sixty  years reign, the only statesman, who  can be pointed out as having steadily  adhered to those Imperial principles,  now so completely in the ascendant,  is the Queen herself. Always .loyally  bowing to the will of her people as  expressed in the'Imperial parliament,  she yet through all the long ��������� and  tlieary reign of the Little England  party, steadily maintained and occasionally gave very .practical expression to those high Imperial ideas,  wliich we of the colonies do now rejoice to see in possession of the field  in Great Britain today. -  Kootenay in" the flush of her rising  .prosperity will not. be backward in  the e'-elebivition of "this" joyful 'hnriiver?  sary, and: Revelstoke will'not be'-be-  hind the rest.' The time, however, is  drawing near, and preliminary-steps  should be taken at once-'to'organize  some fitting method, adapted lo our  local circumstances, of celebrating the  day here. We cannot have anything  very imposing, but we can easily get  up a good programme "of -athletic  ports and bicycle faces,. with an' exhibition of fireworks and'; a concert  and dance to.wind up with, something  in which the'whole .community can  take part together. The churches  will no doubt supply' some distinctive  form of celebrating the Sunday before, wliiclr'h-tppe-is^cnriouslyrenough-  to fall this'year on the real date of the  accession, June 20th. We only wish,  however, to be understood as throwing out a hint, aud would be glad to  see our citizens take hold of the suggestion and put it in such shape ns  may command itself to the judgment  of tbe majority.  money of the shareholders of the  treasury stoek, but it may still be  quite possible to lay bare the tricks  of the schemers who wieckeel the company in Vancouver. In the Herald's  opinion the Revelstoke business men,  who have allowed their names to  figure before the pnbli c nn tlie prospectus of the defunct company owe it  to tlii'inselves to sift the whole business to the bottom, and the Herald  will give them all the assistance in its  power in throwing light upon it, if  they choose to adopt this course, which  in our opinion, it is due both to themselves and the good name of this business community that they should do  as quickly as possible.  EATING THEIR HORSES.  Hard Times in the Lesser Slave   Lake  * Country.  . Winnipeg, April23.���������Owing to the  scat-city of game, people are starving  tit Lesser- Slave lake in Athabaska.  Over 200 horses have been devoured by  the hungry Indians.  C. B. HUME & CO.'S WAREHOUSE.  A Substantial Testimony of Revelstoke  Trade.  ."- A* Herald reporter paid a visit to  C. B. Hume & Co.'s new warehouse on  Thursday afternoon, under the able  escort of Mr. C. Llndmark. The building is' not quite complete, but large  quantities of goods are already stored  in the ample room on the ground floor,'  which takes up the whole space, 33x00.  Here are to be found carloads of sugar,  flour, rice, soap, and general groceries  of"every description, while one end is  devoted to hardware and miners' supplies. A hundred cases of Rain Lai's  tea imported before our new free trade  government puts "a duty on it, - will  soon take their 'place on the floor. The  Toronto Type Foundry Co. have secured floor space on this storey, for,, two  carloads j of presses, etc., which, will  (_hop_y.> arrive, .froin .Vancouver,/''A  lift is to he buil"> tei the, upper floor,' in  which a" carload of trunks iind valises  are stored just*now,"but which will be  divided into rooms! in one of-which  the firm have generously offered a  home*, rent free, to a branch of the Y.  M.C-A., if one can be formed in town,  where a rending room and bath room  will be opened under the Associations  auspices. The firm intend to lay down  a private switch up to their door and  to open the cross road in front of the  warehouse. The Herald hopes that  every success will attend their energy,  enterprise,and public spirit.  TROUT . LAKE CITY.  T.   ABRIEL, o  NAKUSP. B.C.

SMITH,  Revelstoke Station  Retaliatory Legislation.  A bill to restrict the importation and  employment of aliens has been introduced in the Dominion parliament. It  is similar to the law that is in existence  in the United States. The bill is in  tho nature of a reprisal for the restrictive and narrow policy adopted by the  Federal government of the Uhited  States.  The bill makes it unlawful to prepay the, transportation, or iu any  way to assist or encourage the importation ol* aliens into Canada, under  contract or agreement made previous  to the' importation. All such contracts shall be void and of no effect.  For every violation of the provisions  of the act as above set forth the offender shall forfeit and pay the sum of  $1,000.  Immigrants unlawfully in the country may be arrested within a year and  returned to the country from whence  they came, at ������the expense of the  owner of the migrating vessel, or, if  entered from an adjoining country,  at the expense of the person previously contracting for the services.  The receiver-general for the Dominion of Canada may pay to any informer, who furnishes original information a share of the penalties recovered,  not exceeding 30 per cent.  It is provided that no male alien  shall be employed in any public works  of or in the Dominion of Canada, or  come regularly or habitually into Can  lull., by land or by water, for the purpose of engaging in any mechanical  trade or lnrinunl labor for wages or  salary, returning from time to time  to another country.  ORPHAN BOY SWINDLE.  As'far as the Herald can ascertain  there will not bo anything for the  shareholder's of th** Orphan Boy Mining Co. ont of the sale except their proportion .each of the two thousand  dollars over anil above Haskins' claim.  The present owners lire private individuals in Vancouver, who, the Herald understands, do not intend to  stock a company to run the mine at  all, but have simply bought* it. relying  on the published reports, as'a val jalile  property. As far, as we can make out,  the old directors and managers are  strictly outside. We say as far as we  can make out, for from beginning to  end of the existence of the Orphan  Boy Mining Co.," nobody apparently,  not even those who nominally figured  as directors on the prospectus, has  been able to get at the bottom of the  transactions of the inner circle. The  Revelstoke press has been blamed for  not exposing the swindle before, but  as a matter of fact the swindle was  not worked here, but in Vancouver,  which was flooded with proprietary  stock, before even the treasury stock  could get on the market. The Revelstoke business men, who figured as  directors on the prospectus went into  the thing with the most perfect good  faith, and are as hard hit as anybody  else. The misfortune is that the  rascality at work had the names of so  many upright and honorable men  here, under which to operate.  However the Herald believes that  the matter is not quite so altogether at an end as is imagined. It  may   be   impossible  to   recover   the  A Silver Tip that Turned Out to be a  Porcupine���������Prospectors Preparing  for  the Season  From Our Own Corr_-pondc.it.  Trout Lake City, April 20.���������There  is nothing at present to call for any  particulars in and about this camp.  We continue to hear good accounts of  Broadview, Silver Cup and other  mines at work, but just now is the  great, slack time, the roads and trails  being in such a condition that man or  beast can btuely pass over or through  them. Still tho camp is not void of  excitement at times, to wit: Yesterelay morning about half past nine a  general rush wits made by most of the  city folks to the end of the lake (or  lake shore).1.1 A large silver tip was  seen crossing the ice two miles below.  Spy-glasses and binoculars were  brought into play. Some stating it  was as large, as a horse, cow. etc.  Our mighty ninnods got into boats  and sped ailing down the broken edges  of the ice to get bruin. After much  excitement and hard work, bruin  turned out to be a "porcupine."  Now this was hard on our brave de-  fenders, and they returned literally  with their tails between their legs.  Not bad as a starter, is it?  In the course of another week I  think all the ice will be gone from the  lake, it being now open for a considerable length on the upper end. Several trout has already been taken from  the lake.  A few prospectors have already  come in to start their summer campaign, viz: Hugh Stewart, J. Myers.  W. Groove and family are expected  from Thomson's Landing today. In  the course of three or four weeks we  look for a great increase.  Revelstoke Markets.

Thomson's Landing, April 22.���������Mr.  Jas. Tolim has the frame of his new  residence up and will have it ready for  occupation in a few days.  : Mr. Dan Citllaghan has commenced  the erection of a new hotel building,  21x60 ft., for Mr. T. W. Grahaiiie.  From appearances the Landing will be  quite a place by fall.     - -  Mrs. H. Needham left some radishes  anil cabbages in her garden lust fall,  deeuiing them too sniall to pull. What  was her astonishment when the snow  disappeared when she found" the cabbages 10 lbs. and the radishes as large  as hen's eggs, and all in good preservation. . .. - ..."  . * * , ��������� ** . .

A* new saw mill is at the Landing on  its way to Ferguson.]    '  ���������  The s. s. Lardeau is at present making two trips a day to' this place from  Arrowhead.  An unusually-large number of people are coming into the Lardeau and  Trout Lake country this spiing; the  hotel here having from 20 to 30 every  night. '  A syndicate is trying toget an option  on Beaton and Thomson's land - at _tie  head of the Arm, but the deal has not  yet been arranged.     _     '     . "_  Mr. A. Mnnro, who so successfully  made, a mine out of the Silver Cup  has severed his connection with the  company, and left today for Vancouver. On his return he is to take charge  of a mine in the Slocan. Everyone  here and around Trout Lake were very  sorry to see him leave the district and  we hope he will be as successful in the  Slocan as he was in the Lardeau.  Dave Ferguson and Lanchy McDonald are at present stopping here. They  are working a prospect on tho south  side of the'Arm, about 14 mileu from  this place. They have worked a day  anel a half and must have struck it  rich, ns Dave says he hus raised tho  price $10,000 since yesterday.  Messrs. CumiiungH and Sparling have  their new hotel at the Forks nejirly  ready for business.' Andy has had a  hard time of it,���������getting in his lumber  and supplies.���������on account of the rotids  breaking up. If he wasn't a hustler  he would not have succeeded. He left  the Landing with two horses, packed  with ilishe-t, this morning. If Billy  Glenn and Barney had not helped him  out, he says he would have" had to  wait till the roads dried up.  A petition praying the local government to grant $4,000 per mile to the  Galena Bay Railway, was circulated  here during the past week. Most of  the property owners round the head  of the Ami declined to sign it, because  t hey are opposed to the principal of  bontising any more railways in Canada. Some of us consider it about the  poorest plan that could be devised for  opening up this country because its  terminus is six miles from Arrowhead  on a bay without shelter and cannot  be connected with Arrowhead by rail.  I should judge that a railway from  Revelstoke or Arrowhead to Kootenay  Lake, with branch.lines up Fish creek,  Lardeau creek and j Duncan river,  would lie much more serviceable.  Trains would not have to be ferried  and the line would be shorter be about  six miles.

It has been decided,  that the fleet \\;ill not be paraded.as a  subject of-ridicule for the world.

HIGHER DUTIES  Constitutes  TARIFF  the   liberal  POLICY  SMUGGLING CASE  Present Duties are to be Increased, and  Duties to be Imposed on Articles  Now Free���������Some of the Changes���������  The Red River Still High  Ottawa, April 17.���������Expectation is  running high over the new tariff. A  leading Liberal stilted yesterday that  as far as could be " learned on  tea, -sugar, coffee, tobacco, beer and  spirits, where duties now exist, the  duty would be increased, and where  the articles tire free they .would be  made dutiable. This has been found  necessary in order to retain the present revenue,'as on some articles there  will lie a reduction. Raw sugar will  likely be increased from A cent to li  cents per pound, while on refined  sugar the duty will run $2 or more per  hundred pounds as against $1.32 at  present.  Local duties will be adjusted. The  duty on bituminous coal will be reduced probably to <10< cents ;i ton.  while -10 cents a ton will be put on  anthracite.  Oil refiners anticipate a reduction of  one cent per gallon on refined oil.  Just enough, they silv, to paralyze  them and not enough to please the  Patrons of Industry. The duty on  slack or steam coal may be reduced to  please the manufacturers.  Agricultural implement duties have  given a good deal of lioublc to tho  Finance Minister, but it is morally  certain that they will be retained at  the present standard. Two reports  are in circulation, one that on larger  niplements the duty will be reduced  from 20 to 15 per cent, and on smaller  implements from 35 to 30 per cent. Another report is that the duty on.all  classes of farm machinery will be 25  per cent all round.  not treated properly.

Prominent' Montrealer Mentioned in  Connection with the Detectives  Discovery  New York, April 17.���������The special  agents ot the treasury department  have unearthed a system of smuggling  which has in the last five years practically driven a large class of importers  and manufacturers out of tho business.  They say this state of affairs was disclosed through the arrest.last Monday  of Adolf Kluge, president of the German Artistic Weaving company.  Kluge was held by United States Commissioner Alexander ' in $2,000 bail,  which was furnished.  Special Agent*. Cross and Cummings  who have charge of the case, tell this  story: "Charles Shorey is a member of  a big iirui of clothiers in Montreal. Mr.  Shorey went to the Grand Trunk railway officials in Montreal anil told  them that his wife was spending a  month in Lake* Wood, N. .1., and he  desired to send to her two trunks full  of wearing apparel, for which she had  written. The railroad officials said he  would have to get the consent of the  United Slates customs officials, and  have the. trunks examined by them before they could undertake, to check  them direct to Lake Wood. Mr. Shorey  made I he necessary application to the  United States nfllcials stationed at  Montreal. The trunks were opened.  The perfunctory examination revealed  only a woman's gowi and Mr. Shorey  took his trunks iaway. Afler he had  gone the customs officials became  suspicion;:, and followed the trunks to  the depot, only to find that they had  been checked to New York and not to  Lake Wood.

Attention has been drawn to this district hy the almost phenomenal discoveries of gold and silver deposits whicih  have boon made in recent years.  Ferguson townsite is situated on  the forks of Lardeau creek and is surrounded by a dozen or more working  mines and several hundred recorded  claims, most of which have splendid  surface showings. The Silver Cup,  Great Northern, Badshot and numerous other properties within a mile or  two of Ferguson have made showings  that are equal to nnd even better than  anything in the older districts to the  south. The Silver Cup's actual ship-  pine returns have shown an average  of -100 ounces silver to the ton. Assays  "rom the Silver Cup. Sunshine and  Towser run from 150 to 1900 ounces  silver, $30 to SCO sold. -10% lead and 15  to 20% copper.

Tho result of this  strike was that, the Horne-Payne Company, who owned an interest in the  claim, immediately paid S"S,000for the  remaining interest.

They  want to travel from Liverpool or  Glasgow or Southampton,., to Quebec, or Montreal or Nu.v>Yoik or  Boston. Their prejudices are one  obstacle to the success of the  shortest line.

They  ask that all powers enjoyed by the  provinces he conferred 01*1 the I'erri-  toritil Government with the exception  of power to borrow money and charter  railways. They asked that, instead of  .iu Executive Committee as at present,  an Executive Council he created with  departments, the same us a provincial  government, nnd that there be three  members instead of two as at present.  They asked that all powers now-on-  joyed by the Lieutenant Governor be  conferred upon tlie Council, which is  responsible to the people, and which  the Governor is not. They asked that  certain other powers pertaining to the  transfer of laud, elc, in wliich there is  frequently conflict, with the Dominion  Government, be conferred upon them  and finally that tho Territorial subsidy  be adjusted.  At, present the Territories receive  $212,000 annually .as a subsidy. The  delegates asked an increase of $150,-  000. It is doubtful, however, if more  than !*i75,(K)0 increase will be conceded.  All the.t.uestions were fully discussed  by the Privy Council .and the details  citefuUygone into in every case. The  Government practically agreed lo concede all the points with the possible  exception of tho $150,000. It is just  possible they may give" $75,000. A  promise hits been'made to deal with  the question this session and a bill bis  introduced soon coul't'i-ririg upon the  Territories the powers asked and ad"-  justing the subsidy.

It is a well known fact that (o  have good lieuUli you must have  puro blood. There is nothing moie  essential than that the life current  should bo free from all impurities,  so that it can complete its circuit of  thc sysjtcni to give, vital forco to the  body aud activity to the brain.  How Can Pure Blood Bo  Obtained ?  To begiu with, let us see how the  blood ciiculates. Wo have in the  averago sized person about eight  quarts of this fluid. It is manufactured from tho food we daily  consume by a chemical process of  nature. She selects only that part  which after digestion is found to  answer th- purpose. She takes it  up by a tube called tho thorax duct  and empties it into a large vein near  the lefc.clavicle (collar bone). Prom  there it is carried at once to the  kidneys to be strained of all impure  matter which was left in the act of  digestion. If the kidneys are, in a  healthy condition and are performing their work in the manner nature  intended they should, the blood,  when it leaves them is absolutely  pure and contains all the elements  necessary to give life and strength  to the system. Prom the kidneys  it goes direct to the heart and is  thrown by that organ to every part  of the body "to give it nourishment  and to take up the worn out  material.   -  - Next to the kidneys the liver is  the most important organ in the  matter of pure blood,' Contrary to  general belief it is not' a blood  purifying organ. Its purpose is.for  nutrition and digestion.' It secrets  daily many pounds of bile, a large  portion of which is used lor  digestion and the balance goes into  the bowels to act as a cathartic.  The liver is a sensitive organ  and is liable to congestion., This is  especially.' the caso * during ' the  winter" months when it is -transforming fat foods into heat for the  supply of the body".      ��������� -  The result of this congestion is  an excess of bile, which, when spring  approaches is thrown into the  blood, causing   that   tired,   bilious  eling,, when - the victim becomes  dull and restless, well today and  half dead tomorrow.  This condition aiisc3 from' the  fact that the blood is filled with  bile and litric acid, and 'as every  drop of vital fluid passes through  the_;_;kidneys_for_purification_-these  organs soon break down and are  .unable . to remove, these deadly  poisons. ' The question of .pure  blood then. is. simply this: A  healthy-condition of the kidneys to  properly purify and a healthy,liver  not* emptying its poison into the  blood, but into the bowels is the  true and only, secret.

He had placed his arm between two  sills to find out the size'of the block  required for the'space, between,' when  first one ami then the other jack supporting the upper of the two sills  slipped let ling the whole weight of  tho deck of the* bridge on to the unfortunate mari's arm. lit* was pinned  tht-ie for tun minutes until the sills  could be* jacked apart again. He was  brought down to Revelstoke and  placed in the Union hotel, where Dr.  Maclean put in 10 stitches into.his arm  from which the whole skin, llcsh and  upper muscles from the elbow to the  middle of the. hand were completely  torn away.

The  block is located near tho gravel pit.  As soon as the supplementaries are  passed work will commence right  away.  Mr. J. A. Mara was in town 'yesterday en route for Nelson, lie is afraid  that theie may be some hesitation on  the part of the. I_.-ii-de.au '..Railway company about building this "year. This  ���������will be a pity, as if a road from the  south taps the Lardeaii country first,  Revelstoke will be liable to lose the  : trade of the district, which willgo to  Spokane.  Mr. S. R.Rcid, of the Winnipeg  Nor' Wester, came in on Thursday's  train to spend the summer in the* interests of his paper in Kootenay. The  feeling in "Winnipeg with regard to  this country is very confident, and  speculative. The Rat Portage country  will open up with a rush in a  week or two, as soon as tlie ice goes  out of the lake.  The idea of forming a St. George's  society: has been mooted in town and  meets with considerable favor. This  society is purely of a benevolent and  patriotic nature, its main object being  to aid those of English or Welsh birth  ���������or descent, who may neeel help and  are deserving objects of relief. Secondly it is a social and patriotic society,  Theie is no secrecy about the organi-  -tation whatever. The Herald thinks  it would bt> a good idea to start one  anel would like to see tbe Scotchmen  .get together and form a St. Andrew's  .society at the same time.  One of the worst slides ever seen in  Kootenay came down on Tuesday last  from Lake Mountain, one mile .north  of the boundary and overwhelmed a  camp of 12 men on the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard railway, burying six alive  and fatally injuring another. It is  supposed the*lake on the mountain  burst its banks and swept down .the  gulch in an awful avalanche of boulders, trees, gravel And water, leaving a  mass of debris behind it on the Hat 300  feet wide;-100 feet long and 12 to 14  feet high. The men were, asleep in  camp when the slide came clown on  them.  The framework of the new C. P. R.  hotel is rapidly going upon the knoll  above the station. The main portion  is to be three storeys high and the  balance two storeys. It has a handsome front elevation something in the  Swiss style anti is to be surrounded by  spacious verandahs. The hotel is to  contain 10 bed rooms, lavatories, bath  rooms, etc., on .all. the floors  other modern conveniencies  character. There is also a largo hidics'  parlor. On the ground floor is the  oflice, billiard room, waiting arid reception rooms, dining room, barber  shop, etc. The kitchen has all Ihe  modern sanitary other improvements.
