The McDowell-Atkins-  Watson Co., Ltd.  "THE   DRUGGISTS,"  McOARTSr BLOCK.'  Geo. T. Maliory, Mgr., Revelstoke Branch.  There is a disposition in the loftj"  and superior papers of the old fiishion-  ed stump in this piovince to talk with  great contempt of "fads." The flabby  nnd indefinite* Scmlin piogramme wtis  patronizingly commended for its lack  of "fads." These organs _f "light and  leading" have not condescended to  enumerate the particular projects,  which come under the head ot' '"fads,"  but it may be safely taken for granted  that anything out of the ordin.wy  routine of administration, under which  this province bas been crawling along  since confederation, would in their  esti mitt ion be open to the objection of  fiiddislmc-S. For instance railways  must continue to be built by private  parties' heavily bonnssed by the government. That is the only sensible  way of getting railways constructed.  All the government ran bo asked to do  is to act in the matter of bonuses with  discrimination. Government ownership of railways is a "fad." Under the  "sensible" plan this province is guaranteeing the interest on three railways  out of which it is receiving 40% of the  not earnings on two and nothing nt all  on. the other, some of the most valuable portions of the province have  been handed over to other companies  to'induce them to build and the whole  of ono district and everything in it has  been granted to another company to  get them to construct a road, 75 miles  long, which will be in operation" four  mouths of tho year. On every line  built freight and passenger rates are  up to the top uotch. This is how British Columbia, fares by assisting railway  enterprise under the sensible old fash-  ioued plan.  How aie other countries faring  under the fad _ of government  ownership? - In Hungary you can  travel G miles for one cent and wages  hiivc-'boen doubled on the railways,  while the lines yield an annual revenue  of ,$4,000,000. In Belgium fares and  freight rate's have been cut down onc-  h.ilf anel wages doubled. Tn Germany  you can ride four "miles for one cent,  wages are over.120 per cent higher and  net"profits have increased 41 per cent.  L������st year the roads paid the government a net profit of $25,000,000. In'  Australia you can ride 1000 mile., for  ."0.50 first class, working -men can  travel 0 miles for 2 cents and 30 miles  for 10c. Railway employees receive.!  25 to 30 per cent, better wage's for S  hours work than they get in tliis  country for 10. ^ It.,-appears to the  Herald that the-''fad" of state ownership is worth some attention after all.  The governments of Belgium, Germany, Hungary and Australia are not  composed of cranks and enthusiasts.  -If-the-policy-of.state ownership of-raiU.  witys is a .fad, the'-HERALD is at all  events in good company in advocating  it. -  Some people are very anxious to see  our provincial politics run on party  lines, which never hael any meaning in  provincial politics and are gradually  ceasing to have any even in Dominion  allairs. The Hera~~> has yet to learn  of any solid reason why this province  should conduct its next election on a  dividing line of matters, with which  no province has by the B. N. A. anything to say. If any combination of  politicians would form a Reform platform with a few good fads like state  ownership of railways in it and appeal  to the people on it as against the old  fashioned, "sensible" policy of grab,  monopolies and corruption, this province would have some party politics  of its own worth talking about and  fighting for.

POZER, Front St., Revelstoke  llautf  NOTE AND COMMENT  INCORPORATION  Arguments for and Against the Scheme  now being Mooted.  The chief argument for the incorporation of this place is the present  unequal incidence of taxation. The  big people who own the townsites are  let alone. If this place did its own  assessment we could make sure that  this abuse was removed, and that the  townsite owners paid their full share.  At present they are doing nothing for  the town. Every'cent-they receive  for the lots they sell is pure profit. In  case of incorporation, assessment  could be made to touch improved lots  lightly, and run unimproved property  np to the extreme limit of value. This  woultl compel our absentee speculator owneis to bear their full share of  the municipal improvements, which  increa-e the value of their property  and at the same time make them eager  to get their lots off their hands and  willing to do something, to push the  sale of them and develope the* town.  Again incorporation will enable us  to spend our own money and make  such improvements to the town as tire  most necessary. Tho assessment embracing as it will a lar^e area of property held at a good figure should run  high enough to enable us to do this  withoiit a high rate of.taxation.  As a corporation tbe-'town could  make itself heard better in its dealings  with the government and other bodies.  The question of freight rates for instance could be bandied by the town  council with an influence, which no  other local body could hope to bring  I o bear on the C.P.R., and there would  be machinery existing in the municipal officials for the collection of statistics on such points, which is at present  wholly lacking. <  Against tbe scheme Uie chief argument, is undoubtedly-the scattered  nature of the population of tbe town,  which wil render the expenditure on  improvements a very" delicate matter  to handle. "The fear of trouble on tliis  score is very likely to keep'business  men from accepting municipal" office,  from purely business cori-sidir-cations.'-,,  * TEfere-will also'.-lie uin-eiuuncrative  expenditure to i.ome out of "the taxes,  such as salaries for a clerk, constable,  assessor anel "collector, which will reduce the amount to be expended whore  we want to see our money spent in the  improvement of the town.  -These objections are inevitable.  They occur more or less in every pla.c  which i-s incorporated, and will not he  obviated by putting incorporation off.  They will be found just as formidable  next year or five years hence, as they  are" at present.

The "War department is at present  engaged in building a breakwater at  Buffalo. The stone is being quarried  in Canada, and the collector at Buffalo  will not let it come in without paying  duty. There is apparently no fund to  meet the emergency. The contractors  have their laborers and"plant on the  ground, and the War department will  incur heavy loss unless the Treasury  department relents.  DR. R. HATHISON,  DENTIST,     .

It is also satisfactory to learn  that some Vancouvei ites are beginning  to realise on some of their investments  in that camp. Yesterday a local syndicate completed the sale or the Alice  mineral claim, situated in Ground Hog  basin, at the head waters of McCulloch  Creek, for the sum of $3,000 cash, the  purchasers being the London & B. C.  Alliance Syndicate, represented in  British Columbia by Mr. John O. Fer-  gusfon, C.E., of this City. Considering that only one year's assessment  work had been'done on the Alice, the  price is very satisfactory. Ther-local  syndicate alluded to owns ten other  claims in the same neighborhood, and  is making preparation's to do considerable development work this season on  some of tho claims. In addition to the  purchase of the Alice, Mr. Fergusson's  company has secured six other claims  adjacent. Mr. Fergnsson recently returned from the Big Bend, where he  let the contract for sinking a 130-foot  shaft on the Oie Bull, one of the claims  he secured. All of.these claims arc in  the vicinity of the noted Orphan Boy  mine.  Another Big Bend transaction of.iiu-  portance, was closed last week by C.  S. Douglas & Co., the well-known  brokers of this City, who were the first  firm in the Province to take hold of the  Big Bend, having organized a syndicate  in 1S05 in this City and sent J. W. Haskins to prospect that district, when, a  large number of locations were made  by him for the syndicate. The sale  just consummated by thisfirmcompris-  ed the Golden Ourrie,Pearl,Rose,Eric,  Silver King and Gem mineral, claims,  situated on the head waters of French  Creek just over the divide from Ground  Hog Basjn. The purchasers weie a  syndicate composed of Montreal and  Vancouver men, and the price paid  is said to have been in .the neighborhood of $10,000. --It is understood,that,  the development of the properties will  be commenced at once, and prosecuted  during the winter.���������News-Advertiser.  OUR SOUVENIR GUIDE BOOK  To North Kootenay  will  be   Published  Next Month  The Herald's Diamond Jubilee  Souvenir guidebook to the Revelstoke,  Big Bend, Trout Lake,*" Lardeau and  neighboring districts wliich has been  in preparation for" some months past  is now nearing completion. By the  flrsYot next month" it~is"-eTx"pected-to~be  in the pi-inters' hands, and this coming week will be the last during which  it will be possible to add to its contents  either pictorial or litiary.  A very large number of photographic views, many of them of remarkable  excellence, have been taken in all  parts of tbe North Kootenay district  during the past few months, and from  these a selection of the most suitable  will be reproduced in the forthcoming  book. As regards the reading contents the descriptive matter will be  full and interesting, and the publication is likely to be the standard woik  on the district feir a long time to come.  The Herald takes this opportunity  of tendering ils thanks to many of the  residents of North Kootenay who havo  given prompt information and assistance towards the compilation of the  book which is one intended and certain to have a marked effect in enhancing the prosperity of the community as a whole,  There are, however, still many 'people with a large property stake who  ought to be heard from. These persons invariably profess approval of the  projected book and promise support  in the general way of the non-committal voter who so often leads on the*  inexperienced politician to his undoing  at the "polls. The Herald has no  desire to find itself left in in this way  on the publication of its Souvenir  book, and therefore asks supporters to  sign orders which are payable after  the issue of the work. This coming  week is the hist during which the compilation of the book will be kept open,  and during which persons so desiring  can secure mention being made of  properties which arc of sufficient importance to deserve notice*.  The Herald's guide book will have  a first issue of 10,000. It will be scattered far and wide through Great  Britain, Canada .and the United States  and for,,atlvei'tisine: the marvellous  resources of North _*_uotcnay amongst  the most desirable classes of investors and prospective settlers no better  medium could be devised.  TERRITORIAL  Items of Interest to People in and From  the Northwest  A Kegina despatch says that the  election protest in Western Assiniboia  has been dropped and N. F. Davin retains his seat.  The Ottawa despatch which announced the appointment of A. L.  Sifton as judge of the Supreme Court  has been contradicted by the minister  of the Interior. Mr. Sifton, we are  informed, has made up his mind that  he will have to wait a couple of weeks  himself.  The mounted police are purchasing  dogs in Northwest Ontario to be used  on the Klondike mail set-vice.  Vice-president Shaughnessy of the  C. P. R., being interviewed in Winnipeg with regard to the rumored  extension of the Calgary to Edmonton  railway to the Athabasca, said that  his company did not possess the necessary information to enable them to  decide on the practicability of the  scheme.  H.'B, Wilson, manager of the Molsons bank at Trenton, Ont., litis been  transferred to the management of the  Calgary branch, in the room of Mr.  McGregor, who has resigued.  The Macleod Gazette says it is  expected that- 30 miles of' grading will  be completed hy the 21th inst. on the  Crow's Nest Pass road. Work on the  C. to E. railway bridge across the Old  Man's river is being pushed forward  rapidly. Two pile drivers are tit work,  one on either side of the river, and the  rails are being laid from the north side  just as fast as the piles are driven. At  present the bridge is to be' entirely  supported by piles, but a permanent  steel bridge will be put in this wuitei-.*  Several pai ties are leaving Edmonton tor the "Sfukon. Some are fi.-om  Duliith, some from Pennsylvania, ar.d  three large outfits from California.  Some will ttike the overland route  with packhorses," and others tbe river  route's by* the Athabasca, McKenzie,  and Porcupine or Liard rivers.  - There-is to ben 'iig bicycle territorial  race meeting at Calgary on Sept.O aud  7. ��������� There,will be 14 events'and 3-foot  races.

A "company of  Canadian and American capitalists  has been organized to carry on the  operations.  "   ' The Central Hotel.  Considerable* tidditions and improvements are in contemplation by the enterprising proprietors of this popular  house. Mr. Chas, Abrahamson is  moving his private residence further  down the street on his vacant lots to  make room for an 80x30 feet, 3 story  addition. This will give about 23  more bedrooms upstairs. ' Downstairs  will be the dining room, sample rooms,  etc., while the bar will be kept in the  old building. The Abrahtiuistin Bros,  find these additions rendered necessary by their largely increasing trade.

TARIFF DISCRIMINAIION  Truly the ways of the American Government are wonderful  and their methods ot procedure  equally strange. This is strongly  exemplified in the announcement  recently made in the New York  papers that the privilege of bringing goods into the United States  in bond was about to be abrogated. TheU. S. tariff act, prior  to last session, contained a clause  (section 22) which reads as follows:  " A. discriminating duty of 10 per  cent ad valorem, in addition to  the duties imposed by law, shall  be levied, collected and paid on all  goods imported in vessels not of  the United States, but this discriminating duty shall not apply to  goods imported iu vessels not of  the United States, entitled by  treaty or any act of congress to be  entered in the ports of the United  States on payment of the same  duties paid on goods imported in  United States vessels." j  -,��������� In the session just past, an I  amendment to this clause was  agreed to in conference, and  smuggled through" both houses  without those iu charge of the  bill notifying Congress���������according  to the Toronto Globe. "Whatever  may have been the reason, for the  . secrecy manifested in getting the  amendment through, the effect  was to make section 22 read as  follows:  "A discriminating duty of 10 per  cent, in addition to the duties  imposed by law, shall be levied,  collected and paid on all goods  imported in vessels not of the  _jJi"?.ited_S_t_ites,_pjrj____h  production or manufacture of any  foreign country not contiguous  to tbe United States shall come  into the United States from such  contiguous country, but this discriminating duty shall not apply-  to goods imported iu vessels not  of the United States, entitled by  treaty or any act of congress to be  entered in the ports ot the United  States on payment of the same  duties paid on goods imported in  United States vessels."  The object of the amendment  was, undoubtedly, to injure the  _ Canadian railways by killing the  greater part of the through freight  business, and the United States  attorney-general has decided that  goods the production of a foreign  country not contiguous to the  United States are subject to the  discriminatory duty of 10 per  cent provided for in section 22 of  the new tariff act, and also that  the method oE conveyance,  whether by water, rail or other  wise, is not material. A further  question is now under consideration, i. e., whether foreign goods  coming through Canada under  consular seal are subjected to the  discriminatory duty. These goods  form a large portion of the exportation of tea and other commodities from the Orient coming by  way of Vancouver and the Canadian railroads to the United  --   States.  The whole intention of che  alteration in the tariff is to raise  the tax on outside freight entering  the United States through Canada,  and thus inflict injury on the  Canadian seaports and railways.  What are known as the "bonding  privileges" are not affected at all.  Thus British Columbia cedars can  still be sent to South America, or  wheat from Assiniboia to Europe,  and be bonded through the United  States. Again the vast traffic on  theC. P. R,. across the State of  Maine will not be interfered with.

THE AIR OF BEDROOMS  The   following is   Mr.   Goldwin  Smith's comment on the assassination  of  Senor  Canovas:     "The  assassination'.of the'prime minister  of Spain by an Anarchist, though  startling,   is   by  no    means * unaccountable.   The only wonder is  that there are not rnore'criines of  (the same   kind..   The   suffering  I classes in Europe  have been persuaded   by  writers   who  are the  European   counterparts   ot_ Mr.  Henry George and������Mr. Bellamy,  that the social system under which  they live is a mass of iniquity for  which  the  laws   and ^those who  make   the  laws  are   responsible.  They do not read, or if they read,  they do not understand or lay to  heart   the   economical  reasons oE  socialistic or Utopian teachers, but  they do read, understand and lay  toheart the inflammatory passages  In their eyes the head of a State  becomes   the   chief   of    criminals  rais_e_d by.l'aws of his own making^  and    a   public   force   which   he  abuses,    abovo    regular   justice,  and    therefore   a    proper   mark|  for    the    irregular     justice    of!  the pistol or the dynamite bomb.  These maniacs'cub   the throat of  their        own        cause. The  worst enemy oE the reformer is the  political assassin. There was a  strong and promising party of. constitutional reform in Russia till it  was killed by nihilism! and the  murder of Alexander II. That  monarch had emancipated the  serfs. Canovas del Castillo hael  given the Spanish people universal  suffrage. We are almost ashamed  to repeat the commonplaces of  political prudence in the presence  of a tragic event and of the suffering among the unfortunate classes  from which the anarchists' freu/.y  springs. But it is well" to bear  distinctly in mind that neither  madness nor murder has ever done  humanity any good."  An  They Are Exceedingly Liable to He Over.  cliiimeil Witli Watery Vapor.  When there is too much water in the  atmosphere the; person who breathes il  is to a certain limited extent deprived  of his eluc supply ot oxygon, and an elementary beginning of stlltociitioii is perceived in liis chest. Most middle-aged  and till old persons huve felt ttiis, ami  all persons also who have weak hearts  or iniptiivoil lungs. Now the air o" lieu-  rooms is exceedingly liable to bo overcharged with watery vnpor.  The most obvious reasons for this are  that many bedrooms tire never waimeel  with fires, and that'their windows tire  often loft open all dtty until dusk, and  sometimes even to the very hour ot  going to heel in a damp air. A delicate  or aged person leaves a wttrm dm wins  room", say, at. half-past eleven, a drawing room in which there was a temperature of OS degrees; he enters a cold,  damp bedroom, stiy, at a temperature of  as degrees. The air iu the drawing room  was dry. perhaps a littlo too dry.  The air in tlie bedroom is saturated  with ceilil, watery vapor. The person  we arc thinking of, so soon as he enters  the hcelroom, chokes and gasps anil  couidis Xor half an hour at least, nnel  sometimes brings on stu-li nn attack ot  asthma, or. as he calls it.

"Make an effort to bring tbe atmosphere  of the bedroom nearer in point both of  drviwos anel warmth to tho atmosphere  of"the drawing room, and then not only  will a man feel as comfortable in the  bedroom as in the drawing room. _ lint  even more comfortable. He will neither  gasp nor choke nor cough, but will g������  to sleep with ease and .comfort. * Com.  mon-sense tells some plain peoplo all  this. - But to, those, who liayc.no regard j  f for common-sense scienr{*-!eii3-tiic->:ii'*e<i-i  I tnle. and she; speak.- with a voice wno������  , authority not even llu* mo.-t learned will  question".���������The Hospital.

The action of the United States  customs authorities in imposing  an extra duty of 10 per cent on  foreign good.sjmportedivia Canada  is a curious after piece to the  pledges Sir Wilfrid Laurier and  his colleagues made during the  election campaign. Then it was  pointed out that all that was  necessary to do to secure free  admission to the United States for  Canadian products was to turnout  the Tories, whom the Yankees  hated, and to put in the Liberals,  whom the Yankees loved. Xow,  not only is there a United States  tariff higher than ever against  Canadian products going into the  United States, but Canadians are  prevented from handling British  goods over' the frontier ot the  United States consumer. Tho  "strongest business government  Canada ever saw" is strongest as  a failure.���������Gazette.  The benefits of the Crow's Nest Pass  construction is already being made*  manifest in Moose Jaw.

Geo. H. Reid. premier of New  South Wales, and Hon. C. C. Kingston, premier of South Australia,  arrived here last Thursday from England and leftfoi- home on the Miowera.  In an interview Mr. Reid stated that  the hitch in the negotiations regarding the Pacific cable was caused oy  Canada, wliich country had made no  definite proposal as to what she was  ready to do. ' New South Wales,  Queensland and New Zealand were  ready to enter into an agreement, and  Victoria would also probably come in,  but uutil Canada had made a definite  propositi Great Britain would not act  in the matter. Unless Canada acted  promptly, added Mr. Reid, the scheme  will drop, as the route via the Cape  Colony had been already talked of,  and ic is said this is favoured by the  Imperial navy aud army authorities.  Regarding Australian federation,  both premiers are very sanguine that  it would be shortly brought about.  The only point delaying- federation  is the power to bo given the Senate.  The large colonies claim it should not  have the power to amend money Dills,  while the smaller states claim it should  have tbe right. If this question was  settled, both premiers affirm that no  trouble regarding the fiscal and other  mutters would he experienced.  *��������� Premier Reid stated that he thought  Sydney would be chosen as the  federal capital, as New South Wales  was the largest aud richest- colony.

Their great  claim is that that the country is suffering on account of a shortage of  money and that the supply of gold is  not great enough for the requirements  of trade. In Canada the discovery of  new gold territories have followed  each other in rapid succession. We  have the famous Kootenay, the new  gold districts of north west Ontario,  and_latest__gf___.ll,' Uie_w_,e__nderfiil____Clon_;  dike region. With our many thousands of square miles of unprospected  countrv, ive may keep on increasing  the list of gold territories every few  mouths for years. We are also adding  new silver territories to the world's  overstock of white metal, all of which  must lie very discouraging to, the advocates of free coinage of silver.���������The  Commercial.
