Under the guise of an Act to authorize a loan of $2,500,000 for .the purpose  of aiding the construction of Railways  and other Public., Weirkt*,.a .very obvious attempt is being madu by, the  government to galvanize this corpse of  the British Pacific - scheme* into a renewal of existence.' The chief clause  in the act provides'.for ' a' grant of  $4000 a mile to he paid out' of tho loiin  to that portion "of the "Columbia"nnd  Western ^extending- from ' Boundary  Creek to Penticton, approximately 100  miles in length, to a ^railway from  Bute Inlet to Quesnelle, approximately 210! miles, and 'to a line from the  coast to Chilliwackr approximately 00  miles. Briefly this province is .being  asked to add another $2,500,000 to "its  present very considerable deht'ot five  millions tidd dollars.' and $75,000 a. ye)ir  to the $100,300 it is.- already . paying"  annually for interest, in order chiefly  to aid the construction of a large section of the British Pacific railway;  which already possesses a subsidy of  20,000 acres of limtl per mile. * Neit that  thejict is as explicit as.that. By ho"  means. The government have heard  there is a plitco called Quesnelle somewhere tip in Cariboo' and '������, happy  thought has struck, them that somebody iiniy.possilily think of building a  in 'there some day and if this is the  case, they.ywant to be. able tn give  these enterprising people $1000 a mile  to help them out. It is the same' way  with "the 'Columbia ,& Western." The  Hon. Minister of Finance has been  reading the recent report of his colleague the Minister "jJf Mines, and has  noticed that'the Boundary -Creek  section is a very - promising one..-He  would like to be able to aid any company public spirited enough to want  to connect that country with P.entic-  toii at the foot of Okanagan Lake. .Mr.  Hcinze, the charter of the. Columbia  & Western and-their '20,000 'acres of  land per mile had all slipped his memory when ho drew up this. Act, so  refreshing' in .its Arcadian simplicity.

This is. the Lardeau River railway, which has behind it the powerful  Lilloet, Fraser River and Cariboo Gold-  fields Co.. which will open up a district  second  to  none-in   Kootenay,  which, within a couple of months from  its completion, will be carrying ore for  a dozen shipping mine.; and within a  year for forty of fifty, which alone of  all-the railway schemes now  before  tbe  house  has' its   line located, aud  which is prepared, if granted  a subsidy, to give bonds to commence work  within 30 days and to push it right  through to completion.   There is not a  ^railway project, now  before the province more worthy, of assistance, or  which will give better returns for the  very small' subsidy, which   would be  required to assist it.

GROUND  HOG  '' ' HA SIN  ' This season the old time interest in  the Big Bond country was partially  revived on account of the location of  veins carrying free gold. Thirty-one  claims in this basin' were recorded  during the season, in "addition to ten  others located late in the fall of ISO'S.  AssessmiVnt work was done on'a few  of the claims; anel by all reports they  have improved as depth was attained.  Many of the claims in this basin have  been bonded to' English capitalists,,  particulars of which*aie more fully  setont later on.  " Orphan Boy Mining Co.���������The Orphan Boy mineral claim is situated on  McCulloch Creek, Big Bund district,,  nnd-lies south-east of the Lust Chance  placer claimV-about |(J5" miles north' of  Revelstoke.' .The company litis sunk a  shaft 45 feet., and run a drift -117' feet,',  the* face of tin: drift is in solid ore and  shows up a lend-10 feet in width. -The  estimated quantity of ore on the dump  how is 1,200. tons, average value ,-cif  which is calculated'at from $20 to. $25  .in gold per ton. .

"Mr." Ei'bsloh arid his associates  intend to push "development work as  soon as navigation opens, with a view  of t<*sting*the'properties.

I madu men  Hon cf some, new discoveries at the  head of,the'north fork of tho Illec-ille-  waet, which turn out to beat the head  of the south- fork of Downie Creek.  These properties, numbering 21, have  turned out, to be fully equal to what  was-. e*xpec'ted. Mr. John Grant of  Detroit, Mich'., has bonded 10 of these,  and he is at present, in London, England/making necessary arrangements  te������ work them next year, while at the  present there are seven men up ������there  at work opening up two of the claims.  Twelve claims were recorded this year  in this vicinity,,"ind assessment work  was performed on seven claims.  , CARNES*CREEK.  Homes take".  Hard   Pan,' Aberdeen.  Roseburry, Salisbury, Arsenic and Im-  fierial.���������The above claims are owned  iy parties in Revelstoke, who have  done considerable' development work  on them.'. Assays made this year show  the quality of the ore as impioving  with depth, and running as high as $45  in gold,, besides in silver. Most of  these properties have been' bonded to  an English syndicate, and no doubt  will be opened up next spring. There  ai-e other claims owned by parties in  Seattle, which show up favorably with  development .work, and eight* clailns  were staked and recorded on this creek  this year. Carnes C.*eek has an advantage over many of the other claims  in the Big Bend, in that the distance  is only 28 miles from Revelstoke.  ., JORDAN CREEK.  Considerable'development work -has  been done on the claims on this'' creek;  they will doubtless be heard from next  summer..  "     NEAR REVELSTOKE.  Eariy in July this year quite an .excitement was" raised by discoveries  made on thu hill at the back of Revelstoke of rock carrying gold, where 10  claims were recorded as located on the  mountain', but'the 'excitement soon  died out, and little or no work was  done on any of them.  I would bug to ppint out that lack of  transportation    facilities  sj  far  has  acted as a detrinicnt to tho Big Bend  country. This season opened very  late, in fact the yiow was on., the  mountains till July, then came" the  Hoods, that practically cut olf all i-om-  mutiii'iitious wilh thu'Bend for about  5 weeks by trail. This could bo avoided by a steamboat running up as far  as Death Rapids, by which it would be.  an easy matter to transport ".applies  to the various * creeks flowing into  GoldetruiLtii,' that Hows from thu cast  into Columbia."above thu rapid, above  which point tire trails follow the  higher bencb.es. There is a possibility  ot a steamer being put on the Columbia-next season, to run above Ruvul-  ste)ke.  Considering the* excitement in tho  Rosslurid District, which has been tho  Mecca of all mining men, this section  has done fairly wull when the shortness of thu season is taken into consideration, and 1 have* every confidence  'in this suction. It. is but. a einostion of  a short time when it will be found that  tbe north end of West..Kootenay-is  equal, if not superior, to any part of  it. lint as before stated transportation  facilities are wanted for the rapid  opening up of this part of Kotitenay.  Thu section litis not even as yet been  nrospertud,   alluvial    diggings    alone*  having been tbe-principal thing looked  for by the*  placer  miner, for   whom  there is no fnseiiialio'i in tiuartz leads,  only in thu  small   particles  of  gold  burie>d  iu  the rivers  and- streams.���������  From the Report of the__Ministei' of  *������ ��������� *        . **        ^  Mines.    , _i        .

CROW'S   NEST  A correspondent oi' the Globe  writing from Lethbridge c oucern-  ing itlio Crow's Neat railway project says some people out AVest  are asking "if, in tho interest of  the Doraiuion, it would not be  well to postpone the work until  tbe future of tho Kootenay country is established beyond per-  mlventure," aud suggests the possibility that Rossland may not  prove a place of permanence. "A  yenr hence," he says, "we shall  know more about the mines and  the chauces of their becoming permanent institutions." With this  view we do not, agree at nil, and  are inclined . to think very few  Westerners would be found "to  endorse it. The future of Kootenay if already established beyond a'doubt. The mineral wealth  of Southern British Columbia is  no longer a debatable c_uestioii.  AVhether Ro"island lasts or not has  little to do with the case. Our  'own impression is that it will go  on and flourish. But if it should  not do"so the proposed railway  will be none the less necessary.  The future of the Kootenay is not  bound un with Rossland, nor even  with Trail Creek. The mines of  Kootenay are already permanent  institutions, and the longer we delay in beliving it the longer pur  eastern merchants and Western  farmers will be prevented from  reaping;their share of the commerce that will -spring from this  great, new, *'profitable industry.  It is quite certain, we repeat with  the utmost deliberation, the  future of the Kootenay country  'is already established beyond per-  ad venture.���������Globe.  Mr. Robert .Fitzsimiiipus seems  to have. struck a gold mine in  Nevada. "Free milling," too;  The stocktaking at the Ontario  Legislature revealed ttireehundred  and uihe corkscrews. No wonder  the 'Ontario "'government' has a  pull.    The rumour is again revived  that Mr. William McGregor, M. P.  lor North Essex, is to be Devlined  into the collectorship of customs  at Windsor.  Lord Russell of Killowen, the  English chief .justice, in a person  of extraordinary energy. He got  through the business of York  a������sizes so exuickly that he had two  days to spare.' Then he hurried  up to London and cleared off two  or three cases that "had fallen  behind on the other judges' lists.  = Some members of the bar dropped  in to see the fun, and the chief  justice appealed to them for any  caset" he could-try,'as he said he  was "seeking for employment."  'He was offered a case from Mr.  Justice Cave's court, but was at  the same time informed that that  ��������� learned judgewould probably deal  .with it himself in the course of  the afternoon. ' Accordingly the  Lord chief justice declined to try  it, declaring that he did not want  to take the bread out of anybody  else's mouth. (Laugnter.) Finally,  however, two non-jury cases were  discovered in Mr.Justice Matthew's  list, and these Lord Russell proceeded to hear. If the chief  justice goes on at this rate, the  famous line in Hamlet about "the  .'law's! delay" will (be out of date.  NEWS NOTES.

Mr.  Shaiighnessy thinks that a great deal  of the ore from the United Suites side  will be drought into Canada for treatment. '        i  A lively rate war is now on between  .the Canadian Pacific. Great Northern,  Northern Pacific and incidentally the  Grand Trunk Railway', for possession  of tbe passenger business into the  Kootenay district. The situation at  present-is that all lines tire now cutting  nn the western business. The Grand  Trunk nominally is not cutting, but  through connections with the Great  Northern,which it is claimed is doing  the cutting the result is the same.  The rates of the Canadian Pacilic have  been met by the oilier three* lines,ind  m some instances are lower thau rates  that have, heen granted. To pr-olee-D  its own business, the Canadian Pacific  is also cutting. The rate war has not  yet extended to other points in  Canadian territory, where the Grand  Trunk and the C. P.

"March 81.���������If the  reports just; received from the Turkish  headquarters are correct, fighting has  already occurred on the Turkish side  of the frontier of Macedonia. It is  said that the. Greek insurgent chieftain  Alexis Tate crossed' the frontier on  Tuesday last.  . The situation is about as critical as  it can be and it is difficult to see how a  war between Greece and Turkey can  be averted.. Strong efforts in that  direction are still being made but it is  rumoured that King George has sent a  message to the Czar saying that it was  impossible to recall the Greek troops  from Thessaly. Iii view ot the excited  state of ' the* public mind it is believed that even tbe annexation of the  Island of Crete would .now fail to satisfy the Greeks.

Canea, Creete,, March 31.���������The insurgents by a bold stroke occupied the  hill on the south side of Suda Bay last  evening. They were promptly shelled  by tbe British, Austrian and'Russian  war ships. At daybreak to day firing  wtis resumed and the Cretans driven  from their positions. As soon as firing  ceased they made .'mother attempt to  lecover the lost ground, and the warships resumed firing whicli was very  very heavy for several hours.  CRETE  Quito recently I received from  Prof. Steale, of Michigan University  specimens of hair f������wn tho skulls of  the mummies ho exhumeu;froin the  burial places of the Incas, in Peru.  The specimens wore well preserved  from the ravages of tho manj' centuries that have rolled over them,  and show that their possessors  belonged, hirsutically, to a race of  ovoidal haired people., for on tran-  verse "section, the shafts resemble,  markedly, tho transverse sections  seen of-'hairs from our straighter  though ovoid haired people of  today, as the French and Spaniards.  Hence while the hair was"inclined  to straightness.yet a curling of it, in  a minor degree, was not only possible but probable. Socially, then,  even as their monuments indicate,  the hair would mark them as a race  in advance, so far as the arts of  civilization are concerned, of tbe  cylindrical haired Indian of the  present time. Ib is considerably  coarser than ' Anglo European  hair, measuring, on the average,  1-333 of an inch in diameter. One  specimen, from an old gray haired  individual, apparently a'niale.shows  the imbrications of the outer scale  layer, covering the cylinder, very  .plainly." Another specimen, from  a middle aged individual,-shows the  .medullary portion of the shaft as'  plainly' as re-agents could biing' it  out. - '    ,  The Incas were accustomed to  dress their hair in some simple manner, he'ladies permitting theirs to  grow., quite long, confining ib either  in - loose ' braids or in loose rolls,  about' their heads, much as is the  custom of the remnants of their  race today.

How the National Highway Bucks Snow  For the. last few days things have  been lively in railway circles in Revelstoke.   The warm'weather started the  snow and the slides kept ''coming.   By  Sunday ���������morning there were slides on  lho truck  from  the 13th crossing to  beyond'Albert  Canyon,'anil  the telegraph   lino   wits  down.    AVest   there  was it bad slide between the two snow  sheds just this side of Clan  William.  That morning!'In add to the trouble,  the rotary working oast was struck by  a slide 'anil rolled   over.   Five or six  men, including the driver, Section foreman Nels Anderson and II. 13. Smythe  were in the rotary at the time. Anderson's leg Wits pinned   against thu firebox  and  badly  burnt, while Smythe  was slightly scalded.  Dr. McLean was  sent for and got. out to the -scene .of  thu accident, but'another slide came:  down behind and cut the ��������� party olf, so  that  il   was   impossible   to bring the*  injured men to town.  The same: morning   rotary   "C",   working'   at    Clan  William' broke five of her knives and  had to return to the shops for-repairs  which ileltiyt-el the work till late in the  afternoon.    However,   about*!" p. in.  No. 2 steamed in  to the, station and  was held here.   .After'it short interval,  the   rotary  party, who   had   already  been  on  duty 00 hours, pulled out to  work-east, where every available man,  including Contractor O'Leary's gang,  were put on tho work of clearing the  road.   On Monday there was only one  man kepi m the yard here, everybody  else being out bucking   snow.    It was  found   more    convenient    to lift-the  track around the rotary than   to wait  until it could be put aright just then,  and in this way a passage was effected.  At last ti road was cleared and orders  were given to "elespatch  a  train  from  RcelsLoke*.   easl.   when   a   big   sliele.  which   was   seen   falling  from town,  came   down   and   knocked    the   now  .bridge-at   the   13th   crossing out   nf  "place  and  completely   filled   up .the  canyon below.    It wtis not   till yesterday morning that communication was  reeipened.  On Monday No. 2 came in and went  back west as a special. Great praise is  duo to Supt. Mai-pole, who was right  on the spot all tile time; Locomotive  Foreman Temple, and every, official  and employe tit tbe: company for, their  untiring efforts to cope with' tho situ-  alien, to which everything seemed  to elo its best, to add. The* slides evinced an almost human perversity in  picking out places'to drop on where  there "wore no snowsheds and everything seemed to conspire against tlie  unwearied working party, who were  grimly bucking a road through the  snow night and day from Friday evening to Tuesday morning. Nothing but  undaunted pluck anil energy would  have forced ti mad through in anything like the time in which it was  actually done.  Passengers hnth from the east and  west who were detained here and at  the Beaver are louel in their expressions  of recognition of the efforts madcj for  their cumfoit during their unavoidable detention.  ^i^^^^\^::^^M^T*^^-^-  M������������������������!SI0-KE l������ TR&U, ��������������� *  |=������        F5 \a/F^I7|7^\      Successor to GILKER & WELLS  Dealer in Hats, Caps.
