POZER, Front St., Revelstoke  llautf  NOTE AND COMMENT  It was precisely just such nn exhibit  of mineral as Itevelstoke is preparing  to send from North Kootenay to  Spokane Fruit Fair, wliich two years  ago opened the eyes of western mining men in the status to the vast re-  source.s of Trail Oi'eek and Slocan.  The term Fruit Fair is somewhat, misleading. There is a fruit fair it is true,  but tho exhibition of minerals, mining  appliances, etc., started as n kind of  annexe*, has almost oversh-iduwcd in  iuipoittitite the original fair. It has  bcconiu the gathering place_of mining  men from all over the west, anel no  hotter met hoi cot.Id bu devised of  getting into the heads of western  mining men that there are eilher, and  pei-liapf. even richci, mining ramps in  Kootenay than Rossland-ITnd Slocan.  that, by .sending ti good collection for  thouvinspeetion of our silver Ic.id ores,  of our free-milling qutiitz, onr .-uii-ifei--  oiislolhiric.es and sulpliulos.of nuggets  from Big Bend and gold dust fiom (he  Columbia river. Gold is tho cry just  now, gold Noi th Kootenay has got,  iind it is our gold, which will I ike the  t'5'ii in Spokane. Everybo'ily ought to  lend a hand to carry this thing out  properly. 'A gootl exhibit will help  out Lhe whole e-onniiy-lo an extent  which we can hardly over-estimate.  Every place along the main line of  the C.P.T". is putting forw.nd its pretensions to be the all Canadian route  start ing point for Klondike. K.iin-  loops has come eiut with its route via  Tote Jaime Cache with stop ovt-r privileges on Peace i iver. and Ashcroft is  drawing attention to its -wagon road  to Cariboo with close connections with  Cassiar and the Hotalinqim valley line*.  Now Ihe Golden Era is exhorting the  inhabitants of that busy centre of  East Konteiiay trade to, roll up and  bowl up and got sonic-body to li'iild a  trail, .t road, a railway, anything leading" toKlondike. so that Gnldpu. may  control 'the outfitting'trade'for the  Yukon. Kcvclstokc, DonaM, Sicamous  and.Tapping Siding arc yet to " hear  from. Ashcroft, which is the furthest  west of any of those points, and h.-.s a  good wagon road running norlh for  four himdieil miles appears, to the  IIiSliALD to be the most favorably situated place in the piovince for the  stinting point-of an overland loute.  The only difficulty seems too bo thai  anybody coming from the cast, might  nlmost'iis well go on to Vancouver and  get taken up the ciiast and Stic-keen  t-iveir to_Telegf.iph iwi'k by -ste-'.tr.ie.r,  asToil up to the sameJ-pliie o by land  from Ashcioft. Tt seems piob-ibl"  that tho most popular oveiland route*  will be by Edmonton, which can, ��������� be  reached by rail, leaving the traveller  further north thiiu if he were at Barkerville in Caiiboo withoutany trouble  nt all.  Still if, as there scorns no reason to  doubt, there docs --exist tt perfectly  feasible route through an easy country  by way of To to .latino Cache* and Pc.i'e c  ttivcr to the Yukon, then Revelstoke  rather than any other point on the  main is the one. which will bo the  natural starting place. It is the near-  eit to begin with and the first hundred  miles or so of thu route to Boat Encampment at the mouth of Canoe  river is one which will be I he scene of  very active development, demanding  roads, steamboat lines and perhaps a  railway within tho near future. The  C. P. R. already have a charter for the  construction of a line from Revelstoke  to that point, from which there is easy  access by the broad iinel fertile valley  of Canoe River to Tete Jaune Cache.  The whole ot this distance the proposed route would run through a country,  about -whose mineral resouices quite  sufficient is known to make it eeitain  that from the gteat mica deposits at  Tcte Jaune Cache to the mouth of  Canoe River there is hardly any part  of the province more likely tn repay  prospecting anel development. The  route would then lead tilting the gteat  valley traceable along the hose of the  Rockies throughout the province and  there occupied by the headwaters of  the Fraser, to the head of the Parsnip  river, on which rich bars are even now  being worked, ono pai ty of 12 men  having taken out S2.500 in 14 days on  them lait season. Thence across the  Pence and clown the Nelson to the  Liard, which heads near the head  waters of the Polly. This is a route,  which is worth while talking about  and the Kkhalij invites discussion and  information with leg.ird to it. 'i|  ARTISTIC PRiHTiNG-THE HERALD  POISON    OR   PNEUMONIA?  The Jury on the Shear Inquest Disagree  and the Case is Referred to the Attorney General  Lust S.itui'el.iy nighl the adjourned  inquest on the body of S. I). Slicav,  who was found lying dead at the station in tho early part of last June, was  re-'.umod. The Uncling of Mr. Car-  inicliael, the provincial analyst, was  read. It was dated Aug. 25th, and  stated that a minute portion ol' strychnine was found in I In; stomach of the  deceased, inul th.it strychnine and  bromide of potassium wore stilted to  he' incompatible in-the United States  ph.irrn.tcopncn. Mr. G." T. M.-ilIory,  iiiatiiigeji- of tht* McDowell-Watson-  Atkins drug store, and Mr. C. E.  Reid, manager for Giilllths it Co.,  gave expert testimony that the mixture proseribeel for Shear by Dr.  McICechniu was quite a common one,  and an affidavit to the same clfcc-t  was lead from C. II. Conen. a Toronto  druggist iii a very large way of business who was visiting heie with Dr.  .Teff.s a few wooks ago. .Dr. Jeffs gave  evidence that in his opinion the symptoms disclosed by the autopsy pi iin ted  lo pneumonia as the cause of death.  The jury retired and after a short consultation hi ought in a statement that  Shear came to his dc.-itli lrom pneumonia combined with alcoholism,  signodjiy five of .their number. , Mr.  M.icle.iu, sen., brought in a miuoiity  statement that in .Jiis opinion the  cause of death was an ovculnseof  strychnine, due to the strychnine in  tho mixtuie prescribed, by Ui\ Ml-  Kocluiie having piccipitatcel ifcscll in  tho bottom of the _. bottle. Coroner  Maclean said that as the jurydisagreed  he would have tor submit tho whole  matter to the attorney general for  investigation.  ��������� The Spokane Fair Exhibit. ,' -*  The meeting at-the sthoolhouse on  Saturday night under,the".auspices of  Boaid'of Trade to make .nr.ingenionts  for sending an exhibit, oi North, !*"_o;  tenay minerals,'to'Spokahp.'w.is atf"tided by a representative ,body of Revelstoke Inuiincss men,including Messrs.

Sibbald  president of the boa,id took the chair  and ..called'on Mr. White to explain  the object of the meeting. Jlr. VVhite  in a fow words related tho drift of a  convurbatidn-bot\vpen~liiinsalf7in"r~jVlfr  Peters, the general freight manager of  the C. P. R. in Kootenay, in which the  latter had suggested lhat an exhibit of  mineral specimens from Noith Kootenay at the Spokane Fruit Fair,  would be a good, thing and promised  free transportation fin- it as far tis  Nelson, whore the C. P. R. territory  ends; anti moved that such an exhibit  from the Revelstoke. Lii'i-dean. Trout  Lake and Illecillewaet mining distiicis  should bo sent, to tho Spokane Fair.  The motion was carried and e-ominit-  tees composed of John Ahi'iiliniuscin  and J. D. Sibbald for Revclstolce, John  Grant for Illecillewaet and O. D. Hoar  for Trout Lake* were appointed to  iisccrliiin what ftinels eoulel bo raised  for tliis'objcct. J. D. Sibbald was then  appointed delegate to the Fair, lie  will elo all the work necessary for getting the exhibit together and will  accompany it to Spokane. ���������  The meeting then adjourned .sinedie."  The now post oflice* at the: .station is  almost ready for occupation. Postmaster Bourne has procured now  fittings, which will give a largt! number of boxes for tho convenience of  the public and look very ne.-it anel  businesslike. The rear of tho new  addition will be occupied as a private  ollice by the* llrni iinel the oltl ollico in  the "lore taken out cntuely, giving a  considerable additional amount, of  floor room. , Mr. Bourne found those*  changes necessary owing to the increased business both of the post,  office and of the firm, which rendered  it increasingly inconvenient to run  both in one building.  Speaking of the Costello assault case  in Kossland and the auitiunt of bonds  required before bail was granted lhe  Spokane Chronicle says: "Persons  who commit, much more serious  assaults on this side of the lino are  often released on !->100 bonds an.l  sometimes on less." They receive a fine  of $5 upwards and are permit) eel to go  froe. Assaults, and in fact, all crimes  and misdemeanors, aie looked upon  more seriously in Canada, and a man  who commits an assault there is lucky  to escape with loss than a '"car in the*  provincial penitentiary. The promptness with which punishment is met.-el  out lei (hose who \iolate the Jaws has  a most salutary effect, as itinakes a  pei son hesitate a long time before  committing a breach of the peace."

Meat and  dairy produce have fallen greatly, but not  in the same degree as the cereals.  Wheat, there being no hope of recovery of its value, must be abandoned, aud replaced by other product-,  probably by  meat,   dairy  produce, eggs, roots and potatoes.  To this  the   British  farmer,  in  spite  of his stubborn    conservatism,   will have to come,   so at  least thinks Prof. Goldwin Smith.  Such is the first, he says, and most  obvious consequence of the depression.   But it is also manifest that  the land will no longer be able to  bear all' the  different    interests  which it bears now.    It will no  longer be able tcyield at once tbe  landlord^     renti,     the   , tenant-  farmer's ��������� profit,   the    labourer's  wages,   and   the   parson's   tithe.  The landlord will have to choose  between elimination and becoming  his own bailiff.    The farrner^will  probably have to come down from  the horse on which he now rides  round superintending the'labourer,  and to take a hand in the labour  himself.   The Church' will be dis-  ���������e.~tablished,-and-tithes_wilL_cen~e  to be collected. But all this implies  a complete transformation of rural  life in England, which is nt present  organized on the manorial system,  with  tbe   squire's   mansion,   the  large   homestead   of  the   tenSnt  farmer, the labourer's cottage, and  the   rectory.     A change   in  the  character of the nation, social and  political, will  inevitably  follow,  and indeed is already beginning to  appear.  ���������o  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson  LORD PENRHYN YIELDS  "The Problem of the Twentieth  Century City" torms the theme of  a practical article in the North  American Review for September,  from the pen of the Rev. Josiah  Strong, D. D. If the rate of  growth from 18S0 to 1890 continues,  in 1020 the cities of the United  States will contain 10,000,000 more  than one half of the population.  The city will then control State  and nation, aud this fact emphasizes the necessity of taking  special means to educate city  children in the duties of  citizenship.  An End to the  Wells  Quarry Strike���������  A Remarkable Labour Dispute.  The cable last week announced the  close of the most remarkable labour  disputes of   modern times���������The Pen-  rhyn quarry strike, which has lasted for  about  nine  months.      The Penrhyn  slate quarries in north Wales are the  largest in the world; the amount paid  in wages amounted to about $23,000 a  month and gave support to about 10,-  000 people, for the quarrymen come of  a    thrifty   and frugal stock,    There  has -been   trouble brewing   between  Lord Penrhyn and his work  paople  for some time back.   In the spring of  last year some of the quarrymen absented  I hemselves from work,   without leave, to attend a labour demonstration.   Lord Penrhyn's  reply  was  to close the quairies for a week, so  that the labor demonstration cost the  quarrymen   about   $6,003.    Last   fall  more serious trouble arose.   The men  wished   to   appoint   a committee- to  negotiate with Lord Penrhyn as to certain grievances.   Lord Penrhyn  said  he was willing to   hear   the  men   individually or   through their  foreman  but he declined  to have anything to  do with a committee: a committee had  tried to run  the'* quarry before,  and  they    nearly    brought    it  to  ruin.  This was under the late Lord Penrhyn,  and   it   is   certain   that  the   present  owner'has broughttho-enterprise.out  of  a  position   of   insolvency   into   a  prosperous condition.    On   Lord Penrhyn's refusal to meet the committee,  the  men   resolved   to   strike   in   the  spring.    Lord Penrhyn replied by dismissing the 71 men  who formed the  committee.    Upon   this   the  quarrymen held a mass meeting and decided  to come out  on   strike.    They came  out on strike and have been out  ever  since.    Lord Penrhyn was appealed to  by all sorts of people, hut he maintained an   absolutely   inflexible  attitude.  The Board of Trade offered the services   of    one   of   its   labour experts  as arbitrator, and Lord Penrhyn very  curtly told them to   mind   their   own  business; it was  his   quarry,   and   ho  would run it in his  own way,   or   he  wouhl not run it at all.   So week after  week and month  after   month _ went  by, and there was   no  change   in the  situation.    The  Imperial   Parliament  debated the matter, but could  do nothing; Lord Penrhyn remained  sutely  entrenched within the rights  of   property.    It is somewhat ot a surprise to  learn that he has jyiven way and allowed the men the privilege   of  combination.    Lord Penrhyn was a very stubborn Englishman,   but  his  stubbornness only went to the extent of   S7o0,-  000.    When he had lost that much, ho  thought it was lime to stop.

A well known statistician, .T.

In the out shown hero tlie earth is  compared with the moon. It may tiiiis  be seen thnt our planet weighs as much  as seventy-eight moons.  The seventy-oiglir moons uro each a  shade smaller than the true size, in order to allow for 1hc weight ot the steel  frame. Each side ot this measures  more than 20.000 miles in length, :inil_ i"  made of square steel strips that nie T?.0  miles thick. Tho round.rods thnt serve  to fix tlie moons in this frame are each  115 miles in diameter.  It is fonnel that the entire globe  weighs fifty-two and a half times as  much aB Europe, cloven and a halt times  ns much as Asia, seventeen and a halt  times as much as Africa, nnel thirteen  and n third times as much as the two  Americas.

A most appalling state of affairs  is disclosed in Charles Frederick  Holder's graphic article on  ''Chinese Slavery in America," in  the September North American  Review. Slavery has existed  among the Chinese in California  for years, and continues almost  unrestricted. An examination of  the records of the Chinese-  American missions shows that  slavery of the most horrible and  debased nature is being carried on  wherever the Chinese have a  foothold.  The September North American  Keview affords space for a brilliant  essay by Mrs. G. G. Buckler, entitled  "The Leesser Man." It is an elaborate  discussion of the woman question,  inquiring earnestly, Is woman mentally and bodily fitted to engage in the  higher branches of literature, science,  and art? Is ib for the good of the  community that she should engage in  these higher branches ? and "What is  woman's proper share?  THE NIGGER  There has been a terrihle event in  the United Suites. A strain of negro  blood has been detected in a female  student at Vassar College. Great has  been the consternation in' tho College  at the appalling discovery. To set the  negro free countless millions wen*  expended in the war, countless lives  were sacrificed, ond now thirty years  after the close of the. war a pension  list larger than the cost of the greatest  European army is being defrayeel.  Yet the estrangement of the races is  as complete as ever nnd the. degradation ot the negro is almost as elucp.  even at the north, ns it was be-fore !  Meantime negroes from the British  West Indies are "freely studying and  graduating in the most aristocratic of  British universities, while a black  bishop some yearn ago was a guest, in  one of the most exclusive of London  clubs. The explanation, of com-3e, is  that in Great Britain the negro had  never been stamped as a social pariah  with the band of slavery. The Englishmen's " nigger" is the native  Hindoo.
