Last Tuesday a man fell off the  break beam of a freight train going  west at Salmon Arm,'and was instantly killed.,* A letter found on the body  gave an address, in Burlington, Vermont, to which word .was telegraphed,  and deceased's name, John McCarty.  An answer came back directing the  body .to be embalmed and sent east,  but it was too badly mangled to render  this'course possible, and it was buried  yesterday' morning at Kamloops.  Twenty-six dollars in ��������� money' were  found on the deceased, who was quite  a stranger in the country. It is supposed that the jarring of the breaks as  the train slowed up at the mile post  for Salmon Arm shook him off the  beam. ^^^^^^  Revelstoke Markets.   .

It voices Hit! pro-Canada  feeling aroused in England by the  prefer entitil trade clauses of the tarilV:  A nation spoke to a nation.  A queen sent word to a throne:  Daughter am   I in my mother's house  But mistress in my own.  The gates are riiine to open  As the gates are mine to close.  And I set my house in order.  Said the Lady o" the Snows.  Neither with laughter nor weeping.  Fear or the child's amaze.  Soberly under the white man's law  Mv white men po their ways.  Not for the Gentile's clamour.  Insult or threat of blows,  Bow we the knee to Baal,  Said our Ladv of the Snows.  only the mineral products of the  past,  tut also the rapid growth  which has attended their development during the past few years  The total mineral production   of  British Columbia   to  January   1,  1S97,   amounts    to   the  enormous  sum    of    $100,931,(50-1,. of   which  $33,934,427 has been from coal and  coke, and $57,701,853  from placer  gold���������the   result   chiefly  of   rich  workings in Cariboo, \V ild Horse  and    other     famous     locations.  B-tweeu 1800 and 1S9G, the total  value  of   the  annual  production  increased     from     $2,G0S,O0S     to  $7,110,42.*)    due    largely    to    the  marked increase in the production  of gold, silver, lead and copper.  The    mineral    product  of   AVest  Kootenay between  1S93 and  1S90  ro~e from $2,223,200  to $1,002,735,  that   of    East    Kootenay   from  $17,571  to   $151,-127   and   that   of  Cariboo from $282,400 to $381,050.  The various tables presented show  tftiite clearly the commencement,  increase   anel  decided  and   satisfactory progress in the business of  quart--   mining   in   the   province.  The total product of lode mining  in 1891 was only $29,007, while in  1890 it reched no less a sum than  $4,257,179.     From    what  can   be  -. gathered as to the output of 1897  another rapid stride is being made.  , Judged by the indications  furnished in the returns the  development of British Columbia's  mining development has already  reached that stage when its steady  and profitable advance has ceased  to admit oE doubt.  ^l"psp-ee-ch-is~clcan"aTi���������-si'ng"!e}7'���������~        ~  I talk, of common things.

There are 70 or SO claims located on  Hnckleberry hill and the Sullivan  mountain, and manv of these can  become producers in a few months.  On .Tracy Creek there are several  claims that have enough mineral in  sight to justify shipment.  On Elk and "Bull rivers are several  copper properties that can ship ore.  The Dibble group has about 500  sacks ready Cor shipment.  The St. Eugene mine has about 0,000  tons of galena one on tho dump ready  for shipment, whie: has a gross valuation of $300,000.  The Moyea iind Lake Shore mines  can ship ore when transportation is  afforded.  On Perry creek there are. many  claims that will become producers of  the yellow metal when the necessary  means of transportation enables ' the  owners to get in the proper machinery  to work the ore.  There is no doubt that, lit least 200  mines in this district will become producers upon the advent of the Crow's  Nest railway.  Alessrs. John Lineham and William  Gillis arrived here this week.

The debate closed' after  some tiresome efforts bv several members, who would not allow it to go  through till their names were put on  record for tho especial^benefit of their  respective constituencies.  N. F. Davin introduced a bill to  amend the iNorth West Mounted  Police pension act. the object of which  is to make the term of service after  which a man can obtain a pension if  disabled 10 years instead of lo years,  and to reduce the time ot service for a  pension from 25 years to 20 years.  It is reported that overtures tire being made looking to the termination  of the session by June 15th. If an  agreement can be reached the Govern  ment will be disposed to drop some of  its measures.  A bill to make the Queen's birthday  a holiday in perpetuity was considered  in the Senate, Senator McDonald, of  British Columbia referring in eloquent  terms to tho life of the Queen. The  bill passed its 2nd reading.  Ottawa, May 4.���������Today was given  to private members in the Commons  and the House sat only three hours.  One debate arose on a motion of Sir  Charles Tupper asking for the papers  showing the appointments confirmed  and of those made by his Government  after their defeat but befoie leaving  oflice. In all 03 recommendations had  been made to the Governor General.  He confirmed a number made in the  ordinary course of business and last  session Mr. Laurier .stated that these  would stand. Sir Charles said the  Liberals had not notified all these appointees, many of whom were still in  doubt as to their positions.  In the Senate a bill to make the  Queen's birthday a perpetual holiday  was given its third reading.  ALBERTA RAIL.WAV COMPANY.  Ottawa. May -1.���������Hon.

The Golden Era  TO THE EOITOR OF THE HERALD t  Sir,���������I have just seen a statement  in your columns, and which . you  allege to have been given you Ivy. Mr.  McCarter, that I had "locked out Mr.'  D. M. Rue, who litis been 'running the  Era for the past few years, and was  holding fche foit, on which an attack  vi et armis with an axe was in contemplation," Permit me to inform  you that the. statement is a lie, I  havo not locked out anybody. 1 have  purchased the principal interest in the  property and business of-the Golden  Era, of which Mr. McCarter has been  acting 'as editor. Those who have  known the Era in the past will admit  that it has not been much credit to  the district or to those who have been  connected with it; so that, though I  regret to have hurt Mr. McCarter's  feelings by depriving him of his position as editor, it is imfoi ttunite that  any vindictiveneness on his pait  should lead him in consequence to the  circulation of falsehood. I hope that  any changes that are being made by  me in the interest of the paper will  ilso prove* to be in the interest of the  district, in which the paper is published, ami I shall do my utmost to  bring this about. But for unavoidable  delays here and elsewhere, I should  have been at Revelstoke some'time  igo to complete my business arrangements there.  I am. etc.,  E. A. Haggen.  Golden, May 4, 1807. :     .  [The, statement which appeared in"  the Herald may not have given all  the facts, but there, was nothing in it  to justify Mr. Haggem's language.' He  has,,so.he says, and as has been"the  common report for some time past,  acquired the controlling interest in  the Era. Mr. Rae, to whom the  comp-iny owe money for wages, has  refused ,. to recognize Mr. Haggen's  status till he gets his pay. At the  particular point of the hostilities in  question, Mr. Haggen had purchased a  new lock and put it on the door of the  Era office, which sadly needed one,  with the result that Mr. Rae was on  the outside and could only get in hy  Mr. Haggen's ' permission. ' The  Herald understands that this having  been obtained by a show "of capitulation, Mr. Rae has resumed his'original  attitude of non-recognition of Mr.  Haggen's claims, which as far as we  can sec are well founded, to assume  control of the. paper. We do not see  that there is anything in our "paper to  hurt Mr. Haggen's feelings. He will  get some worse rubs'than that a go'dcl  deal, before in*! has been running a  paper out west very ' long.���������Ed.  Herald.] , :':  The Banker, Merchant & Manufacturer  To TnE Editor of The Herald:   '   -  Sir.���������In your issue of the 5th inst;  the very mild critic-ism of the write-up  of the Town of Revelstoke and country  tributary thereto contained in the  Banker, Merchant and Manufacturer  of Chicago, calls for a few comments.  The 1,000 copies of the B., M. to M. were  sent to Revelstoke at a cost of $8.36  by express. If these remair. for yi*ars  in the offices of Mr. Haig and Mi  -Weilsit-willbe the fault of-the citizens  who subscriheel i>>5 each, and who are  each entitled to 50 copies. These they  can with little trouble send to desirable  parties. The squares labelled ''quartz  and placer" on the map were placed  there by Sir. J. D. Graham, the Government Gold Commissioner, as indicating about e-orrcctly the localities  in which claims hail been filed in his  ollice. > However in justice to the  Herald editor, the B., M. to M. acknowledges the valuable assistance  in thu compilation of the B., M. to M  iii'ticle .'itToirictl by reference to bis  articles on the districts surrounding  Revelstoke.- That tbe towns of Trout  Lake City and Ferguson did not ap  pear on tlie innp is the fault of the engraver in Chicago. They were marked on the original. A committee of  the Board of Tr.ide revised the aiticlc.  Personally I have endeavon'd that  the tow n should get more than the  8100 paid, Mr. J. Francis Ijee. Gen  eral Passenger j\gent for the C. P. II,  in Chicago, writes me* that the article  was copied in "The American Canadian," anel that, his idea is to issue it in  folcler form. I also look the trouble  to write out three similar articles for  ji daily paper in St. Paul, F.irgo and  Chicago respectively, and to semi them  in. Whether they were published I  have not as yet ascertained. ff the  editor of the Herald still thinks that  any part of the $100 was thrown away  he places a very small value upon  newspaper work. As my work for  Itosslatid, Nelson and the. Slocan has  equaled the work above indicated for  Revelstoke, few will join the Herald  in applying the wot el "Fake" to this  work. The small amounts paid have  not covered expenses. My ulterior  object is to awaken an interest in  Chicago and the middle Htaten, and to  engage at Chicago in the btiKiness of  directing capital to this Province.
