N. E. of  Edmonton on the Athabai*ea jiver.  The Hist follows the nmte of thu Hudson's Bay steameis lrom the Landing  almost to the mouth of the Mackenzie,  thence turning west and following up  tin* Peel river, 33 mile's to- Fen-t Alacpherson. Froin which -point a portage of 70 miles ' reaches La Pjci re*  House on the Porcupine,*a tribut.uy  of the Yukon itself. - This a long  tound about toiito, .t little shoit of  3,000 milt's, though it, litis the advantage of being by water navigable by  steamer and boat all the way except  the 80 miles, between Edmonton and  Athabasca Lut.ding, which are now  connected by a faiily good - waggon  road, .md will next summer, if Mr.  Van Home is as good as his word, be  joined by a railway. This route has  the- further dis-advantiige that the  Porcupine, after a course of 400 miles  fiom Macpherson Hows into the Yukon  'about <100 miles below Klondike. The  second route would be the same us the  first as .far as Fort Simpson, where" the  Mackenzie* would be left- for the Liard  Liver, which is .navigable by_bo.it as  far as Foit Liard.. Beyond this, point  the naigation'of the Liatd is very cliffi-  cnlt,"though the Hudson's Bay^ voy.i-  geurs have made the tiip" often enough  across the divide to the Pelly "and  thence to 'Fort- .Selkirk, where the  Lewis arid llie Pelly join and make  the Yukon*.

If  the thousands of* Americans now  earning wages and "staking claims in  Kootenay cannot-find~ some' way of  their ciiiiiiti-ymen to their senses,  their own position in this country will  rn pirtlybeconii*exceedingly unpleasant.  The sooner they begin to- understand  that the privileges extendi"! to* them  by the Dominion are the result,, eif a  civilized and enlightened.' policy and  not tin oiigh any timidity .of the United States, the better. " Canada' does  not want to resott to1" uny policy  restrictive of tho privileges of foreigners within her l)on_odarics, rc-  g'lriling such. methods - as the outcome* of an unintelligentiinel short  sighted barbarism. But, if too deeply provoked she niiiy, "lid certainly  will adopt them, with what results  Americans in Kootenay. can easily,  figure out for themselves..  'A petition praying th'e Governor  General to impost a duty on topper  ores has been forwareled to the Her-  aib, Such a duty would,' if sufficiently high, keep the LejRoi and other  Rossland ore3 in Kootenay, where  there tire smelters perfectly capable  of handling them and at the same  time leave the lead ores untouched,  which no doubt at present had better  1)3.left in that condition. A good  stiff export duty on copper ore would  also have the effect of throwing a dry  light on the North port smelter business. There is a good -deal of reason  *to suppose tbat there is about 25 per  cent smelter and the rest townsite  boom in the deal, which would prob-  ablygo'on just the same, if and export  duty which prohibited the possibility  of Le Roi ore Iieing shipped to North-  port, was imposed.  FREIGHT RATE QUESTION.  Under this, head the Herald will  publish a series of tutie-les fro'tn prominent business men of Revelstoke, dealing with the.' important "subject of  the beating of "the present freight  rates to Revelstoke, not only on lhe  prospects of the place, but also on the  competition against Spokane tor the  Kootenay trade. The subject is an  important and' interesting one and  the HeraTjO presents the first of the  series, which is , from * the pen of a  wellknnwn custom, house'1, official,  without further preface.- ' c  "��������� It is/ncitJwithoutJ-feelings of diffidence that one goes back*-to'vthe somewhat old and^threadbare subject of  "Revelstoke and'her 'freight i.ites."  We have all heaid so_ much; in times  past about what the C.-P.rR." would  do " thatit is somewhat disheartening  when one looks back and'-finds what  the C" P. R.

Under'' existing  rates from the East, you- are'charged  the full late through to Vancouver  and then the local' rate is added, in  fact there are cases where firms'here  have found it expedient to havo their  goods shipped direct to Vancouver,  and then sent" back from that point  to R'ivelstokc and this extra haulage  the railway company does'for nothing  ���������75S miles for nothing I In doing  this we aro to understand that tfhey  lose sight of the fart that hundreds of  tons of freight which could very well  bu handled from he>ru are coming in  over American roads or thro'.igh  Spokane? From what most of iih  know of the* C. P. R. we are Inclined  to believe that there, must surely be  "Method In Iheir Madness"-���������Can it  be that the C. P. It. official interests  are so hound up in Vancouver that  tlint citjM'eijiiircs their fostering care,  and thai too at the expense of' Revelstoke. If this is the case, Revelstoke  uo d'ubt should indeed * 'feel  proud, nnd yet in some - way  'or another, most of us ' would  prefer to put our pride in , our pocket  for-the nonce, and take a little bolstering ourselves. Surely it must be  patent to everyone that Vancouver  cannot now satisfactorily supply the  demands of the Kootenay country,  (especially now that she has the wants  of the great Klondike to cater for)  and in aiming to niakellERKootenay's  supply point, instead of, Revelstoke  the 0. P. R. are spoiling both places  and the cily of Spokune is quietly  reaping the benefit. It is beyond  question that even if we had the ratos  from the east which Vancouver (which  by the way is 380 miles west of us)  enjoys, several wholesale houses besides those which are already here,  would come in and Revelstoke would  then be in a posit ion to compete with  jfiny anil all, for the trade of the  Kootenay.���������May we all live till the  day bl>e is in a position to do so.  ODDS   AND  ENDS  c  Some   or  Revelstoke's  Visitor's for the  Past Few Days.  At the Hotel Revelstoke one meets  all .sorts and conditions of men,--people wiio are interesting, in so far as  Ihey are active participants in making  the history of our own times,���������the  history of Great or Greater Bfitt.in  during the reign of Victoria the Good.  The hotel has recently had such an  influx of visitors that it is astonisliing  how Mr, Perley managed to stow them  all away.  His wot ship Mayor Scott, of Rossland, was here on Sunday eastward  bound for his home at Gait, Ontario,  and incidentally for Toronto to raise  the wind for additional improvements  by the* sale of Rossland bonds.  Mayor Scott says Jthat " Rossland is  all right." He has wiped Sour Dough  alley out of existimce and in its place  theie is now a handsome avenue.  Colonel Scott says that Rofasland is a  very moral town. It is astonishing  how places change. He-looked carefully over Revelstoke and w,is favorably impressed.  'A. C. Gait, of Rossland, a lawyer  who ieprcse������nts the War Eagle Co.,  also travelled east with Colonel Scolt.  *Mr. and Mrs. Frank, Trombly. ^of  Ferguson, have been visiting Revelstoke. Mr. Trombly gives the usual  good account of the rapid" progress of  Ferguson. - He is in charge of the road  work of the Lillooet, Fraser,River and  Cariboo Goldfields, Ltd.,locally always  spoken of as "theHorrie-Payne outfit.^'  Beyond the fact of Mr. Robert Montgomery Horne-Payne being the chairman of the board of directors in London and owning a moderate stake in  the .venture there is no reason why the  company should enjoy the distinction  of'having *thes'nami*. of Horne-Payne  conferred upon it as a distinguishing  "mark.

Mr. George McL, Brown was here this  week. His new mission in life for the  C. P. R. Co. is to go round with an oil  can and apply it where there are signs  of friction. Mr. Brown is by nature  peculiarly well fitted for such a position. He is magnetic, reasonable and  minded,���������not prone to quarrel, but  being in it, I fancy, the chronic kicker  will find him a mini to be 'ware of,  A lot of hydraulic piping went up on  the s.s. Lytton to Laporte, and I was  greivtly interested in hearing Mr. Wm.  Kirkup, (a brother of Jack Kirkup, of  Rossland) "explaining to an eastern  tourist how the pipo is packed to its  ultimate destination. It seems that;  according to Mr. Kirkup. a mule is  placed in each section of pipe with his  head and forelegs sticking out forward  and his tail and hind-legs aft. On top  of the pipe are packed' flour, groceries,  dynamite and other luxuries of a mining camp. Mr. Kirkup says the pipe  makes an excellent substitute for a  pack saddle, and once safely inside it  the mule is comparatively harmless  and cjtn be packed without risk.  Walter Roberts.

"  A recent commmiicatnu leeeived in  town states that the hitch in the new  mail service to Comaplix, the Lauding, Trout Lake City and Ferguson is  the expense. It seems that private in-  i_uiries made the department as to the  cost of establishing^a.tri-weekly service brought out that the lowest sum,  for wliich anybody in the country  ,was.; inclined , to do the work", was  $2,100 a ye.ii\ or $40 a week. The "dei-  paitineiit"' which- is under **the^=ii"i-  p'rsssiori that the ".whole income, ft om  the*district i:,;only $218 a year -objects  to paying this amount".' Now as'a matter of fact there are on an average  500 letters t week eacli"_way passing  through the Revelstoke'"post- office  alone to and from the district,-representing an annual incomoe- of $1,500.  There are a large number mailed at  the Revelstoke -station and Arrowhead offices. It is no exaggeration  to say that probably two-thirds of the  whole mail matter from Ferguson and  Trout Lake City is cat rice! by private  hand and mailed either .it.the station  or Arrowhead or personally delivered  in the town. One hotel in Trout Lake  "City*alonli-se'ncls~outrifriiiii--10--to---15  letters in this way daily. It is far  more likely that an income of over  $3,000 per annum would 'accrue from  the proposed service, tlitin the  paltry, sum of $218, which some clerk  in the department at Ottawa has pio-  bably extracted out ot some back  number , returns. However, Mr.  Fletcher is to be sent to look into the  matter, and lliere is *no doubt that  when on tho spot he will be readily  convinced that the department will  lose nothing by paying the very  reasonable amount of $10 per week  for' tho proposed tri-weekly serviie  over the route mentioned.

CLONDIKE  Until a year or so ago, that portion of the North West Territories  ���������which is situated north ot British  Columbia was, i'or practical purposes, a terra incognita to the  world at large. A languid interest  had been aroused in this lone  laud when steps were taken, by a  a joint Canada-United States  Commission, to adjust the boundary of Alaska.  Then occurred a rich iind of gold  on the Yukon���������a large river which,  having its source in Canadian  territory, Hows north west  through Alaska into the Pacific.  Following this gold discovery, a  detachment of Mounted Polico  was despatched to the Yukon to  assist in keeping order among the  miners, who had begun to ilock  into the auriferous country, and  the general public at length awoke  to the fact that another gold, field  had been opened to the world.  And now the whole continent has  been> startled and excited by the  reports of a marvellous find on the  Clondike River, a' small contributory of the Yukon in Canadian soil. These reports recall to  one's mind the old Cariboo and  Californiau days, and, already  adventurous men are hastening  from all parts of the States and  the Dominion to share in the  spoils of this distant land, undeterred by the long weary distance  to be traversed and the undoubted  hardships which will have to be  endured.  Naturally, the Iii*st rjtierjr which  people   mal*^e~v_jeu  read iFg~tlie"  accounts of the gold already taken  out of the Yukon country., is,  "What r-ort of a place is this  .wonderful northern laud of which  we,are reading so much at the  present juncture ? Is it far  away or diflicult of access.*' Has  it a good climate? And lastly is  food cheap?' The answers to all  of these question**, are not, under  present conditions, at- all calculated to favourably impress the  enquirer.  The Yukon, by the nearest practicable route, is distant 1700 miles  north of Vancouver, of which the  greater part i - by sea. At the.ter-  > initiation of the sea voyage the  venturesome traveller has to prosecute hi-i journey by boat and by  pack horse, travelling a weary  s<rretch of mountain and river, ere  he reaches the promised "EI  Dorado." Over this long route he  of necessity must take a stock of  provisions suflieieut to support  him for a year���������all the best  authorities are agreed upon this.  The trade of the district is principally in the hands of two American trading companies, and the  prices of all commodities are extremely high, owing to the existing freight rates aud large expense attendant upon packing.  Miners who Invc taken in supplies  to the Yukon via the Chilcat Pass  have' had to pay the enormous  rates of from Si 1 to $17 per hundred lbs. for Indian packers, and  , everything is in proportion.  Warnings have been issued with  a view to deterring the financially  unlit from rushing north, as the  Yukon country itself is incapable  of supplying the necessary material for food, and it has been feared that a iamint* might ensue during the coming winter in consequence of an flux of miners with  insufficient resources.  The Building Boom  Wo have made arrangements to meet the demands which the rapid increase of orders in the building  trade has caused this season. Our lines of Builders' Hardware are very complete.

'       - -*-."-  Next month' wo will have a talk with you about general  Dry Goods  Something else you all want to hear about, which is  Carpets  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson  CLONDIKE  In discussing the importance to  the Dominion of the recent phenomenal discoveries of gold in  the Yukon country, the means of  access to that country must take  a'prominent position, inasmuch as"  the majority of readers, per force,  possess but limited knowledge as  to this particular phase of the  question. - We, therefore, propose*  to enter into the question of  routes at some length, trusting,-  as Thomas Carlyle once pathetically remarked, "that some little  good may ensue." It is, perhaps,  unnecessary to remark that a  criticism of the relative values of  the routes to the Yukon gold  fields would be far more intelligible by the aid of good maps  than by any mere word paiuting���������  but good maps of Alaska and the  adjoining portion of Canada are  few and far between perhaps  none exist.  The first route, via Behring sea,  Norton inlet and the Yukon  river may be dismissed in a few  words. It is over 40'0 miles from  Vancouver to Clondike by this  way, and therefore it cannot be  expected that this route will  attract miners when the distance  is so great^Vm"p"ai'ecr-~w'tth"-6ther  l'outcs which can easily be made  practicable.  Other 'routes, far tho south,  offer access to the gold fields  and at the same time are shorter  and safer than that via Norton  inlet. Two of these, i. e,, via the  White pass and via the Chilkat  pass, are in close contiguity.  Leaving Vancouver the traveller  journeys for 1100 miles north  westerly along the coast to Juneau  City. Thence, the steamer traverses the Lynn canal, a deep  inlet which runs far inland, terminating at Sakagwag bay. j At  this point good wharfage accomodation is found and the overlanrl  portion of the journey commences.  The White pass over the mountains, 2C50O feet above the sea level,  is below the timber limit and the  Jiritish Columbia Development  Co. have cut a pack trail over the  sunimiti The Chilkat pass, 10  miles west of the "White pass, is  3000 feet above sea level and is  said to be dangerous, the descent  being very steep. However, it is  through this pass that most of the  provisions which have gone into  the Yukon district have been  packed. The mountains having  been crossed, by either of these  passes, the traveller has 030 miles  of river navigation, interspersed  with portage-, before him ere he  reaches tho scene of the recent  rich strikes.  Yet another alternative route is  up the Stiekeenriver,some distance  south of Juneau City : but one  serious objection to this route is  the fact that tho Stickeen for a  considerable portion of the year  is nnnavigable by reason of the  shallowness of the water.  All the above routes necessitate  passing through a portion of the  territory of Alaska. This of course  is    not    a    serious     drawback,  although a frontier line always  acts, more or less, as an impediment to trade, and where, as is  the case with the Alaskan boundary, the liue * of demarkation  between the separate jurisdictions  is drawn across the principal  passes through the mountains, the  effect of customs imposts and  restrictions is apt to ba more  severely felt than if the dividing  line were a natural feature such  as a river. Of course bonding  privileges have to be conceded to  travellers aud their effects, in the  same way as is done iu the case of  persons journeying from Ene-land  to Canada'via. New York.  ITowever, .in view of the fact  'that there i^yet another route to  the Yukon entirely through Canadian Territory���������a route, which,  in bygone years the II. B. Co.  used to reach Fort Yukon, prior to  tho United States taking posses-  lion of Alaska���������we may hazard tlie  opinion that in the near future,  none of the routes via Vancouver  and Juneau City will offer any  attraction to intending prospectors aud miners. The route we  refer to is via Athabasca Landing  or Peace River Landing. It is free  from the dangers attendant upon  sea passages and mount-Aim travel-  liugTrfwiirbe open "air~th"c"^year  round; it is shorter thaireititer of  the others, and it can be -put in fit  condition for traffic at very little  expense.  ���������THE JAMESON RAID  HISTORIC QUEBEC  Parts of It Suggestive of Scenes in the  Old World.  From Quebec, Canada, a cor.'esnol  dent writes to tlie Paris Daily J\iess-  engev:���������"Ici on parle francai**" imgliii  lie written on the portals of thise|uaint  and picturesque old city. Strolling in  lower Quebec: you might, easily fancy  yourself in Amiens or Dieppe. In the  upper town there is more English,  but everywhere an amusing mixture;  On the .-.arne card you will read ''Mai  son a loner," and "Ilouse to N't"; on  one side of the door "Pas il'ad'iiission  sans alfairs," anel on the other "No nel-  miisir.n except on business." This  bilingual necessity causes a little extra  painting and printing. Rich "Railway crossing" must be marked likewise, "Traverse* elu cliemiii de fer,"  anel e'ver-v official "notice" must be  printed ali-. in full as "Avis." Tbe  olencling is often curious, as when two  ad joining shops have their announcements oiie in -EnglLsh anel the other in  French. Along the Grand Allee. running right across the Plains ol Abraham, you might 'be in Brussels or  Paris, only that "Clifton Terrace'  seems to recall ��������� you to Kensington  Travellers for whom Em-ope i.s too dis-  ant, are advised to go to Quebec, there  to finel n, bit of the medieval Old  World translated to the New, but  still embalmed in its ancient religious  sentimentalism, unori which tlie rush  anil roar of modern unrest produce-! as  little effect as the Atlantic breakers on  the cliIVs of Cape Breton. French continues upermost until you pass Montreal, but from Ottawa anel Kingston  to the Pacific the legend of the; nc.-ir-lv  universal tongue is like that of t'.ej  Paris shopkeepers, who announced  "English spoken." In most of the  best school* I'Jnglish is taught, and a  large number ot the people are conversant with both languages, '"nglish  being indispensable for commerce.  The Macleod Gazelle announces  that the grading is almost completed  to cemne-e-t the (J. i\: K. with tlie Ot-owV  Nest railway and tbat the pile driver  has, arrived to construct the biidge-  across the Old Man River.  Mr. Chamberlain's Speech in the English  -  House of Commons  The" following is a resume of the  Colonial Secretary's speech of tho 2'Jth  '.nst.,' on'the motiou of Hon. Philip  '"i-anhope to punish Cecil Rhodes for  It's complicity in the Jameson raid:���������  Mr. Chamberlain reminded the. Opposition that it was clue to their insistence that the committee had,, been  appointed and that lie himself had  been made u. member of it. lie had  been in a position, he said, in which he  felt like judge, witness and defendant,  and he thought he deserved tho sympathy of the House; from the fact thr.t.  during the IS months ol difficult South  African negotiations he had been worried by constant irresponsible charges  and suspicions, and he .was glad that,  he was able to speak at last as a free  man. Whatever thoy contained wtis  no evidence; against the Colonial ollice.  He was convinced that, while Cecil  Rhodes' fault, was as great as a politician anel tt statesman could "commit,  there was nothing that affected his  personal character tis a man of honour,  it was said that he had deceived  others. So also did Garibaldi, Cavour  and other patriot?. It was a military  necessity. Mr. Labouchere, by bringing outrageous chargesagainstRhodes,  licit and Harris, htta abused the privi  lege of parliament. The speakert contended that Rhodes had already been  heavily punished. The Government  was not iroing to prosecute him and to  denrive him of his ' Privy Councillor-  ship, which had been conferred upon  him for his great service. Such a steu  would alienate his loyalty to Soutn  Africa. Mr. Chamherlain_\vas glad to  lJe7n:iin>~������eT^late-~tlAt_rt,lI6~po"sition-tof  South Africa was better now than ib  had been at anv time since the raid,  and President Kruger was desirous of  meeting the Government in a proper  spirit. He believed that the time was  not far distant when Rhodesia would  have se'lf-govemtncnt. The charter  of the cornpanv woultl not be revoked,  butinenus would betaken Lo strengthen  the directorate so as to secure more  direct Imperial control of Rhodesia.

London, Joly 31.���������With reference to  the denunciation of the German commercial treaty, the Times this morning compliments Canada and Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Canadian m-emier,  upon paving the way for further consolidation of the emuiru, and expresses  the hope that the German friends of  the empire will not be an" ey enough  to refuse to negotate anotner treaty.  It, unhappily, they should do so. they  * may rest assured' the deprivation will  be borne with fortitude. British ex-  ' ports from Germany" were never -large  and have increased'very ^little in the  .past forty years. - Even .'if Gennany  should retaliate by 'increasing her  duties, Great Britain must regard it as  ���������a "moderate price to payyfor.the ad-  _. vantages promised from -the niove-  ' ment which Canada has initiated with  so much happy audacity,    -  The Standard expresses "similar  views and says : "It would be to the  interest of both Germany and Belgium  to meet its >i a bnesslike soirit for  the negotatious of fresh treaties."  The Daily- News   calls" it the   first  -fruits of the jubilee, and congratulates  the   Government.beartily. -It says:  ."This event, alone would make   the  year memorable in the history of the  empire.

" Montreal August 3���������Tt is likely that  tlie" holders of Canadian Pacific ordinary stock will be given a half yearly  dividend of li per cent., the same to  be declared, so it is slated on pretty  good authority, at the Board meeting  on the second Tuesday in August. The  stock has advanced from -18 in April to  72', and no doubt it will go above this  figure when the increased dividend  ust referred to is declared in October  next. It was in 1S02 when the stock  went to C3. and the earnings were  away, up. However, the returns are  all right for the last six months. The  net increase in the receipts for the six  months ending June 30 reaches $553,030  over the same period of last year, so  there can be no difficulty about thein-  creased dividend when the money is  already earned to pay it.  ���������  Branches  North West and British Columbia  Brandon   _, Portage la   ,     V-vtcouvei  Calgary    "     ," Prairie Winnipeg  Edjnonton  Prince Albert  Revelstoke  Ontario /  Essex      ^ Niagara Falls   St. Thomas  Fergus        Port Colborne  Toronto  Gait Rat Portage      Welland  Ingersoll    Sault St. Marie Woodstock  -       St, Catharines  Agents  in   Great   Britain���������Lloyd's  Bank,  Ltd., 72 Lombard St., Loudon,  with whom money may be deposited  for transfer by letter or cable to  of above branches.
