THE CASSIAR'BONUS.  On the'111 of March lust Mr. War-  burton Pike applied for incorporation  as tho Cassiar Railway Co., capital  ������1,000,01)0, to build ti railway frum a  point on the Slickoen River to Dc-use  Luke in flit* district of Cassiar, and on  tlie* 1st of April tho net lo incorporate  the company, was passed. As is well  known Dt-ase Lake lies tit tho south of  the most valuable part of the mining  section of Cassiar, which iu tin* opinion of many old minors is the richest  in mineral wealth of any district in  British Columbia. Tlie Stickeen is  navigable for four months in the year  for 130 miles of its course as far as  Gli'iiotti, fiom which point a pack  trail runs at. present 81 miles to the  south shore of Pease Lake. The country through'���������'which this trail passes  consists of rolling hills anel plateaux  nnd presents no obstacles to the* construction of a railway, which would  open up ti country of mineral .*>-eallh  extraordinary even in British Columbia. So fur se> good. But there is  more to follow. Mr. YVai-burton Pike  has got his charter and, like Oliver  Twist has presumably asked for more,  and again like Mr. Barkis the Victoria  family compact is willing. Why not?  Cassiar is a long way olf and nobody  is likely to be'watching any measure  connected with that remote'district.  So the Hon. Minister of Finance brings  down his bill to grant a least-, lease is  a new iilea, for fifty years of 10.210  acres of laud per mile together with  all minerals, precious and ba������e, therein and thereunder. The rights of free  miners are, however, not entirely  ignored. Free miners have a right to  prospect for mineral claims cm the  Company's lands. One-half of all mineral claims discovered is .to belong to  the miner and the other half to the  Company. The miner has to give the  Company a sixty clays option of his  half of the claim at his own price. In  the* event of the Company refusing to  buy the ftee miner has two years, iu  which lie can sell the whole claim at  the, price'of any bona fide oiler made  to him, after first making tlie. Company an oiler* at. the same price, and  the Company shall be bo unci either to  buy or to sell its moiety to the miner's  purchaser. After two years the Company shall t tike'*' chai gc*, being obliged  to give the miner half the ptoceeds of  any sale or of the prolits of development. In short, if the bill passes, over  about SC0.1SO acres of the richest mineral lands in the province, the unfortunate prospector will be tied hand  and foot to the company, and there is  not the slightest doubt which of the  two will come out at the small end of  the horn. But the whole of the elaborate conditions are only a'blind to  *i^-ver~up~tht*~stc*iilrii_*.o���������prosptjctoi-  would ever think of going into the  company's territory at all its long as  they prevail. The family compact sees  its time is short .and it is getting  shameless. They came within an ace  a few years ago of giving away Kootenay, now ihey want to re petit the  operation with Cassiar. The bill has  heen rushed through.'' Only one* course  is open to the people of this province  which is to convince the Dominion  government that we have lost all trust  in the. legislature as at present constituted and to demand that this  bill be vetoed immediately, alun  with the B. C. Southern Railway _\ct.  Provincial rights are all very well, but  when they become provincial wrongs  it is time lo get lhe central government to interfere.  not enjoy some of the bene.(its of it, as  it is perfectly certain we shall hav.*  to do our share of paying for it. We  do not believe that there is any railway scheme now in contemplation  which will develope a richer mining  district or woultl give the province  beller returns for any bonus, which  might he made to if. The road, will  undoubtedly be built, bonus or no  bonus, but if granted a subsidy thu  promoters were prepared to give bonds  to commence wotk at once and push  it. through to completion. With East  Kootenay beginning to attract so  'much attention, lime is beginning to  be an clement of consideration, if we  want capital to come our way and  with .'in American road under survey  from Lhe south to tap the very same  country, it is plain that Revelstoke is  going to have competition for Us trade  and cannot aiford to miss a single  move in the game. These were the  considerations which induced the  IIi_li.__.ij lo endeavor to divert part of  this new loan out of the hands of the  Victoria family compact into this di-  ) L't-titiii. We have not so far seen any  arguments in the Mail, which even  make an attempt to controvert them.  $    $  SAVED  $  BY BUYING YOUR Bltl.AD  AT TITE  REVELSTOKE BAKERY  _A. N.

Our -*stccined contemporary has  .���������otnething to say about "touters for  the Galena Bay toad, journalistic and  otherwise."' The allusion is obscure,  but we presume it alludes to the Ltu-  deau Railway and the part which the  H-.R.-1-D, in company with 'other  prominent business concerns of this  town took in endeavoring to get a  bonus for thac road out of the new  railway loan. Why "Galena Bay  road"? Does our esteemed think no  railway should claim tbe name of Lardeau, unless it runs from Liirdeau  City? However this is only a side  issue. On the main point it entirely  inis-imdevstands our position. We  maintain, as we have said before, that  this province is not at present in a  position to borrow any more money to  bonus railways or under any necessity  of doing so. But there is no use of  following out a principle to the extent  of cutting off your nose to spite your  face*. It beintr quite obvious from the  start that tin* Railway Loan Bill was  going through, the Herald failed to  see why this part/of Kootenay should  "      THE HIGHLAND GROUP.  It is Located on the Glengarry Ledge  and was Well Known Under Another Name.  ' Mr. G. T. Lundy, of the Highland  Group Mining & Development Co.,  canie in on Satin day's train. He has  given the Hi_i. add, some information  with regard to the c-laims owned by  his company. They are claims which  weie first located by Lardeau Jack, at  the headwaters of Silver Tip creek or  West Fork of the Duncan. Two of  them were originally staked under the  names of -the Sir John and \ the 12th  of July. These were afterwards relocated by Mr. Lundy and'called the  Union Jack and " Bloomer. Two  others, the. Ha.tie M. and Highland  Boy, are extensions of the _eclge,_and  th". whole group forms the south half  of the Glengarry group. "'The ledge is  20 to 30 feet wide, ami is traceable .for  seven miles,'and the surface indications are very promising. It is' a  contact, of blue limestone', which is, the  footwall, and slate, the hanging wall.  The company intend to push development work right along, as soon as the  snow goes off, Mr. Lundy himself  superintending anel managing the  operations. ,>Now that the .mystery  caused by the change of" names is  cleared up, it is the opinion of Ltirdeau  inincis that the company own an excellent property, which under development will uo doubt become very  valuable. The company has placed a  first block of $50.000_ti"easui y^hareis  on the market at 10 cents.  Assays have been taken from various parts of the Glengarry ledge  running fiom 03 oz. to 2000 oz. silver  per ton and 70 to 80 per cent. lead. The  following asstiys have been nitielt: from  the Highland Group.and from average  samples���������picked'samples can be taken  oil this property of over 1000 oz. silver  per ton���������No. 1 fiom an outcrop and  No. 2 about four inches below the surface.

Dona l.u, April 2(1.���������A large audience  whs present at the I. O. O. F. hall on  Monday night, lo witness the fiist  performance of the Donalel Diumalii-  Club, in  " NOT  SUCH A FOOT. AS III-: LOOKS."  The play was well put on, and wtis  received with the greatest enthusiain.  Much credit is due T. H. Dunne, for  his scenic effects, his stage* setting and  also for his excellent acting in his  character role of'"Old Mould." But  Mr. Dtmni*. we expected such acting  from you, being as you are an old  stager. Tho curtain of the first act  rose, revealing asceneiu Murgati-oyd's  office. Mr. J. Stirrett, as Mtu-gati-oyd,  (Lawyer and Attorney,) performed his  part iu a very satisfactory manner,  his acting shewed hard work, his role  being both ditlicult and trying. Mr.  Stirrett should be* congratulated on  the success he made of this character.  Much laughter was indulged in, on the  opei.ing of the second act, which represented a washerwoman's kitchen.  This scene is the latest pinporty of the  Club, and it alone was sufficient to put  tbe audience in .good humor. Mrs.  Mould, her husband, and Sir. Simon  Simple kept the house in a ripple of  laughter throughout this act. In act  three, too much cannot "be stiid. both  in regard acting and stage setting.  The scene represented a drawing room  in Mrs. Merton's home. It was a mar-'  vel to everyone how it was possible to  get so much furniture and draping on  so small a stage. It made one i'oel  quite at home, to set* how,comfortable  and natural everything looked. The  leading role. Sir'Simon Simple, was  most ably, performed by Mr. Stan.  -Ruttan. This wtis by far, the most  difficult part of the caste, his English  accent and troublesome monocle causing great mirth. The character part  of Mrs. Mo .del was well sustained by  Mrs. T. H. Dunne, the make-up and  acting shewed careful "study, and left  a;good impression .on those present.  Felicia Murgatroyd's niece was cleverly taken Iiy Mrs. K. XV. Patmoic. This  part was most interesting throughcitil.  and brought forth from the audience  both mirth and sympathy, stirring  their appreciation of it well studied and  acted part. Mrs. R. A. Kimptoti, as  Mrs. Mei-ton, alsosueceeded in holding  the audience*. This is one of the thankless parts which often occur in comedy,  where a lot of acting is required to  properly interpret this character, but  we must say Mrs. Kimpton most ably  succeeded.' R. W. Pattnoro, as Fred  Grantly, Murgatroyd's clerk, delighted  the house greatly with his careless  and genial^ manner. This part, al-  "tlT6iigir_shM-_7_w"a"sr~ex*i-ced:ngly~well  acted.- The pttrt of Captain Marker  was taken by Mr. Bert Williams. It  was very short, and only served as an  introduction to Mr. Murgatroyd. The  play was repeated Saturday' night on  account of a number of the boys being  out on the road. The house although  not so large, had tbe benefit of as  gooel, if-not better,,.acting 'than on  Monday night. As there had to he  three distinct changes of scenery, Mrs  J. Allan kindly consented, to fill in tlie  interval with some eif the latest must  oil productions. This was also a treat  to Donald, and wc hope that the Club  will favor us with another play in the;  near future.  ATHENS IN REVOLT .

The Oddfellows Parnde.'  ' There was a good turn out of the  lodge em Sunday evening at the church  parade of the Oddfellows. Preceded  by the Revelstoke band they marched  from the lodge room at Bourne's Hall  to Holy Trinity churchy which was  crowded to its fullest capacity. The  procession was met by the rector at  the* door and marched up the aisle to  the well-known processional hymn,  '.'The Church's One Foundation." The  service was attentively and heartily  followed by the large congregation.  The rector preached on the text,  '���������Alive unto Christ," shewing how the  noble aims of the order could only lie  carrie*doiit by a spiritual awakening  of the inner lives of the members.  Tlie sermon, to judge by the remarks  of the dispersing crowd after the service, was greatly appreciated.  * The fire* brushed the flies off Coursier's warehouse the other day, but  Coursier is still in the ring.  F. McCARTY'S COLD STORAGE.  Another   Important   Revelstoke   Enterprise.  A HEUAi-n man paid a visit yesterday to Mr. F. McC'arl.y's cold storage  warehouse, which is situalcil at the  back of his handsome butcher shop.  The cold storage chamber i.s 30x10 in  extent with a lofty ceiling and is arranged for the storage not only of  meat but of all kinds of perishable  goods. The constant rush of cold air  from the walls of ice around the chamber keeps the temperature clown to 30  degrees all the time, which is sufficient  to keep meat so chilled as to preserve  it, and at the same time keep the  quality of the meat, which was often  seriously impaired under tlie olel  freezing pnicess. Mr. McCarty is to  be congratulated on the farsecing enterprise shewn in tlvs undertaking,  which will no doubt take a prominent  position in Revelstoke business in the  future.  m   Card of Thanks.

Meanwhile the neighbourhood is much amused nt the would be  bride's description of the son of a lord  anel owner of a count_*-she expected to  be married to on her arrival. Her  chance conversation with a well  known cattle buyer on the train, -who  after admitting that he knew every  cattle producer in the Vorkton district, was unable to identify her expected husband by her'description of  him as the son of a lord, the owner of  a district and the head of a large  lanching firm.

The problem of city  .department stores will iiiul its  solution in the cstabli.hmeiib of  department stores in small towns.  Merchants who are now doing  bu������iues5 separately will combine  and by tho saving thus made in  purchasing goods in car lots, in  rent, taxes, insurance, salaries and  management, will be able t "_> compete with the bigger .stores in  large cities. The department  store is ievoluti-"nir-itig busines**. It  cannot be stopped in its course.  Legislation tail.. , to check it.  Human nature is its powerful ally.  The old ideas about competitiou  are played out. Amalgamation,  co-operation ami, concentration  are the elements of .itece--. in the  modern business world.
