DUNCAN  ROBSON.  Ferpti'-oii, August l~th, 1897^  seplPtw  NOTE AND COMMENT  It is staled by the Inland Sentinel  that one reform, which Mr. Marpole  intends to introduce into lhe Pacific  Division of the O.P.I"-, is the furnishing of iin ofllcinl import to the press of  nil accidents worth mentioning happening on the* elivision. Tlie Hkkald  hopes the information is c-eiri-ect. It is  almost inconceivable* why nn 'opposite  policy has been suffered to prevail so  long. The company have hitherto  preferred to allow the most exaggerated reports of lhis class of occurrences lo bo circulated, r.ither than allow  their officials to furnish an account  for publication. Everybody knows  that accidents must and do happen on  the C.P.R. ns. well as any other railway line. Considering the enormous  system under-the company's control  they are as a matter of fact comparatively infiequenl on the C. P. R. and  its branches. A:fd the energy nnd  skill with which any damage clone is  repaired and the speed with which  traffic is resinned invariably leflect  the greatest cieelit on lhe oflicials.  Tho company .would be a gainer in  every way by,abandoning the policy  of secrecy, which has hitherto been  maintained on this subject.    ,  ������      '  *       Notice.

Dateel this 20th dav of August, 1897.  J.  F. ARMSTRONG,  12nii4t Official Administrator, Kootenay  The growth of this town ��������� since last  spring has been-cxtraoulinary as an  example of quiet, steady, solid progress. It is said that nearly 100 buildings have geine up since the building  season opened.. If the, figures of attendance at the public school aie any  criterion, the population must have  almost doubled itself in that space of  time. A large number of new  places of business have opened up  and the old firms have extended  there spheres of operation. The  fact has become established beyond a  possibility of- cavil tliat. Revelstoke is  rapidly taking her place in the very  first rank of'the business centres of  Kootenay. ���������, These reflections, must be  eminent ly, satisfactory to ve._v^y rcsi-  elont'of this place." To - hone ��������� more" sei*  than to Ihose who* have stood by the  place in its long pej-iod ^..depression  and now see their faith"iif ils future  rapidly approaching fruition. At the  same time it must be borne in mind  that development carries with it  responsibility, "there was a time when  every man living here could do pretty  much as seemed right in his own eyes  without very seriously incommoding  his n-aighbors. These days are past,  and"who in the past have enjoyed certain small privileges and immunities,  on the very reasonable ground that  there* was "no use making u fuss about  -nothingrshould-theuiselvc-s-recognize  this fact and govern themselves accordingly.  Incorporation, which can scarcely be  delayed much longer, will eieate a  body of men responsible for proper at-  tention to such matters. But common  sense ought to obviate any necessity  for compulsion in lhis matter. Streets  and lanes, for instance, were obviously  laid out for thu use of the public.  Tbey were not intended lo be built, on,  fenced up or used ns back yards. Even  where tr.-tlllc does not immediately demand their use. Ihey act as fire breaks  and as modes of access in case of fire  They should be kept clear for these  reasons. These remarks do not only  apply to the olel pari of the* town. The  lanes in the new residential portions  are in several iti.stittu'os left with the  brush standing on them. If the town-  pi te owners will not clear them, the  town will have to do so, and it should  be done ns soon after incorporation .-us  possible by a frontage tax, no tbat.  these owners may iie compelled to pay  as much as .possible for the work,  which they should have done entirely  themselves. This, however, is merely  by the way. There are other instances  of obstructions on lane's and streets  wliich common sense dictates should  be removed at once by individuals  themselves without there being .any  necessity for the exercise of public  authority or stirring up of ill feeling  between private; parties.

The Herald Representative's Visit to tlie  Mining Properties on the North Fork  ot the Illecillewaet.  In connection with ���������the Herald's  forthcoming book descriptive of North  Kootenay and its resources, a representative: of this paper last week  visited Albert Cauyon, North Fork of  the Illecillewaet and the head of  Downie creek, in which part of the  elistrict there ai e now more men employed than in any other.  The local administrative headquarters of the Goldfields of B. C, Limited,  and the Waverley Mine.Liniitee'.are at  Albert "Canyon, where Mr. John Grant  is in charge, and from wliich point he  controls operations. Near the* railway  station a modest hut suitable building  serves as an office and store.  Leaving Albert Canyon the new  wagon road at once strikes away  north - into the canyon of the North  Fork, one of the most entrancing  pieces of mountain, valle3r and river  scenery in the world. The wagon roiid  to the Waverley mine is being pushed  to completion with great rapidity and  Messrs. Ban y & Ross, the contractors,  have about 170 to 180 men on the work.  Their top c-anip is now ou the summit  of the dividing range between the  waters of the Illecillewaet and Downie  eel:, loss than four miles from the  Waverley mine, while their lower  camp is at "The Farm," where the canyon widens out inlo a fertile valley,  and where Mr. Ailcheson of Illecillewaet has taken up 160 acres of land  which he proposes to cultivate. He  has just iibout completed a commodious and substantial-looking hotel  which, when opened, will prove a convenience to travelers. The gr.iele of  the wv.gon road is particularly easy  and with a little cutting and lilting in  in places eoulel he converted into a narrow-gauge railroad at small expense.-  In the first six miles the roael crosses  the* river three times, the bridge work  in each case being noticeably substantial.- The scenery * is indescribably  beautiful at this season of the year,  ihe deciduous trees scattering out like  sheets of gold in a background of dark  green fir,, while above all, in unbroken  sileuce.'Iie "the eternal snows'of awe-  inspiring-glaciers of- an age long past.  There aie waterfalls from these  glaciers of surpassing beauty. One'in  'particular, known as Grant falls, about  half wtiy up the road, is woith crossing a continent to see. The English  lakes boast their "Bridal Veil," Cali-  forniiins are proud of a waterfall in  the Yosemite that goes by that name,  and away down in New South Wales  under the shadow of Mount Krsciusko  near the souice of the Murray river  there is yet another Bridal Veil where  Paddy's river comes tumbling down to  the valley of the Tooma. But to none  of.these is the* name so perfectly applicable as il is to tbe Grant fulls of the  Illecillewaet. Prose, fails for description, but surely England's late poet-  laureate iuust-have-had_ii-se:ene"like"  this in his mind when he wrote:  "Aland of streams! Some like a downward  bmokc,  Slow, dropping veils of thinnest lawn did  go���������  And some through wandering lights and shad-  dows broke.  Rolling tt slumbrous sheet of foam below."  Crossing the divide, tho * valley of  Downie creek stretches away iu front  aud about three miles distant at an  elevation of over 5.000 feet above: sea  level is the Waverley mine owned by  the .Waverley Mine Limited, un English company of which Colonel Thomas  Henry Anstey, ��������� (late) It. y E., is the  chairman of the "board e>f _' elirectbrs.  The company liaS~ii capital of ������ 100,000,  and is pushing mining work under the  charge of .Mr. Perry Leake, M.E. The  Waverley mine is .showing up well nntl  when development is fiirliiiTiielvanced  will turn nut ore in enormous quantity.1  At-present there is about .'100 feet-of  tunnelling completed. The ore carries  lead, silver, cooper and gold and the  vein, which, like all others in the district, strikes N. \V." and S. E. is in a  limestone formation. .. In..'width' the  vein is about 70 fent.'nnd averages by  it.ssuy iibeitt, $250 per ton in all values.  At the mine there are the usual build-  in^s���������plain and ���������> unpretentious, hut-  suitable .-ind sufficient.; In fact it is a  gratifying circumstance to note that  in. all the surroundings of these two  English.companies there is hot a- trace  of that extravagance that too freqlient-  ly attends the expenditure eif foreign  capital in mine. development.���������-., Everything that is necessary is supplied ungrudgingly, but there is no stipet fluity  or waste.  Sonic 3 or 4 miles by trail below the  Waverley,���������it looks like one. mile in a  straight "line,���������is the Tangier mine  which is being developed by the Gold-  fielels of :D. C.'-.Limited, presumably  with'the object of creating it into a  separate, company at it. later stage as  in the* ease of the Waverley. The  Tarigieris about 1,100 feet lower than  the Waverley, and is situated on the  opposite bunk of Downie: creek. Mr.  Perry Leake has also'charge of this  mine which entries galena and gold  iinel is exceptionally rich in grey copper. A short tunnel has been driven  on the Tangier disclosing i vein 17 feet  in width between walls of limestone  and micaceous schist. Assays, so far,  average .$250 in all values.. This mine  is exceptionally well situated for  economical working, having first-rate  water power, while the best eif timber  for mining purposes and fuel is right  cm the ground. The Tangier is mir,  eloubtedly a mine with a great future  before it.  The: Goldfi-Ids of B. C. Limited ha  lt number of oilier claims in the same  locality on some of which prospecting  iinel development work is going on.  About 30 miners are at work .-is miners  and the number will keep on inere>asing  The*, policy of the company apparently  is to test anil develope mining claims  to 11 stage at which it can offer  them to the English investing public  as proved mines ami not prospects.  The Goldfields company has a capital  of ������000,000. The chairman of trie  board of directors is the E.n-I of Esse::,  the other members of the board being  the Earl of Huntingdon, Colonel Henry  Fluelyer, Mr. Ernest Gi'tint-Gov.in, Mr.  George Muir Ritchie, Colonel Thounis  Henry Anstey, anel Mr. Alexander  Matheson. The share list, is an exceptionally strong one. amongst the sbaie-  holders beiug several members nf the  Imperial- parliament, and numerous  gentlemen iu England nnd Scotland,  whose names are known everywhere  in the world of business and finance.  It augurs well for the future of this  dislrict.that an infliienti.il and strong  company such as the Goldfields of B.  C. Limited has come here to stay,-nnd  it is especially fortunate that its initial  ventures are undoubtedly first-class;  at least there is not a mining man who  knows the district that does not consider them such.  From Mr J.-D. Sibbald the Herald  learns that he has received from Mr.  John Grant samples of lhe Waverley  and Tangier ores for exhibition at tlu*  forthcoming fair at Spokane. These  samples will be ranged'alongsiile those  from the best mines in theICootena\*s  and will show to no disadvantage. In  fact, they are sure to attract much tit-  lent'on. ,-  It may lie of interest to add tbat Mr.  John Grant buys his supplies in the  local markets.  The Silver Cup.  About 10 days ago the miners in the  Silver Cup struck a big pay streak of  18 to 20 inches of giey copper in the  big ledge, which run 11X30 ounces in silver to tho ton. Thirty-four actual  miners are employed in the Silver Cup  and about 10.. others building cabins,  getting the camp into shape for the  winter, cutting the winter's supply of  wood, ete. The Broadview litis shut  down altogether.

The rivalry had its romance, but

happens that, n   policy which,  if
.-judged    at    urn.    stage    of    its
operation, is open to   rebuke   on
ethical grounds, may in the later
evolution of events, be shown to
be in keeping with a regard for
the best interests of all concerned.
To base a theory of Providence on
such examples of development is
attended with some risk, especially
when it makes theKprosperity of
the present generation the fittiug
goal of a Ion? series of toils, pains
uud mishaps ou the part of those
who went before us.   There is no
taint of this kind iu theorizing in
the modest defence of the Hudson
Bay Company's policy that Lord
Strathcona and Mount Royal has
included in his sketch of the company's career contributed to   the
British Association Handbook pre-
pared,   for~"'tlre=     late���Tot'jtito
meeting.        Though     necessarily
short, it is of interest to many, and
it  has   tbe  exceptional value  of
being "written   with    authority.
In 1S21, when the union took place,
there were 1-10 posts in operation.
Less than 4.0 years later tho company's  exclusive   powers   in   the
great  region west of   the uiouu-1
tains   anrl    their    lease   of   Vau-;
couver's island expired, and   ten
years afterwards the imperial government    secured   (with    certain
reservations) the remainder of its
rights.
During these two centuries what
had the company done iu "ustifica-
tiou of its tenure of so vast a
monopoly? At first the adventurers wore hardly adventurous
enough, as they found by aud by
to their cost. The passage to the
South Sea, was not discovered, uor
for a good while was it looked i'or.

The main fact brought out is that,
without pretending to be'"philanthropic or patriotic beyond; its
obligation, the Hudson's Bay
Company really rendered important services both to the
Dominion and the ' .Empire"a's a
whole.
When   in ;the ;year I'lGOO   two
young   Frenchmen, appeared   in
Quebec with a well  filledlfleet of
fin-   canoes,  audj.'i accounted   for
their wealth iu peltry by a story
of adventure, in which there are
still   unsettled   points,    no    one
fancied that'they were to give the
impulse    to   a   movement    that
should outlive French rule in New-
France aud  British   rule in New
England,   three   revolutions   and
the monarchy of the great-Louis.
Ten    years    later,   Charles     the
Second, granted a charter to his
-  dearly   beloved    cousin,    Prince
Rupert,   Duke    of    Bavaria -.and
Cumberland, Duko^of Albemarle
and other nobles and gentlemen,
authorizing and encouraging them
to undertake an expedition to the
northwest part of America for the
discovery of a new passage to the
South Sea, and  for the finding ol!
some trade for furs, minerals and
other  considerable   commodities,
and granting them sole trade and
commerce   in    those  seas,   bays,
rivers, etc., lying within the entrance of Hudson's straits.
As the French coureur de hois,
and those with and for whom he
penetrated the wilds of our continent had preceded in the fur trade
the company of adventurers trading with Hudson's Bay, so after
the close of the old regime those
hardy bushrangers had continued
to seek a harvest for winning
which they were by the traditions
of a century and a half so admirably  adapted.     Sometimes  they

Country and to Canada. 'The
timidity; that clung to the shore
was succeeded by a boldness that
vied with and ultimately surpassed the enterprise of all
competitors. , Before the trans- j
fer of 1S70 took place "the country '
had  been  explored north, south,
east and  west It is not
too much to say that it is owing to
the   fur   traders    that    much   of
Western Canada  was retained for
tlio  British."     The    credit    that
Canada  has won  for trcatim? the
! Indians    with,,  humaneness,-and
maintaining peace with such rare
interruption, was in reality owing
to the company.   Both in 1870 and
in  1883  the situation would have
been far more difficult but for the
efforts of tlie company's   officer.,
aud  for the  influence  that   they
had    gained    over - the    Indians
during a friendly intercourse   of
two centuries. i
We need riot follow Lord
Strathcona and Mount Royal as
he describes the lonely life of the
old Hudson Bay Company's officer,
and contrasts it with his less
isolated position today. The
company (with its actual grant of
3,000,000 acres of land and prospect
as the surveys 'proceed, of
double as much) is still a power in
the Dominion.
There is .just one grave omission
in this sketch of the Fur Trade in
Canada, but it is not one that the
chairman of the Hudson's Bay
Company could be expected to
supply. Ot the services rendered
to Canada by that great organization, especially in these critical
periods of transition when the
safety of half the Dominion
depended on the seasonableness or
uhtimeliness of a word, those who
speak for Lord Mount Royal can
honestly say, "Quorum pars magna
fui.'^Mpntreal Gazette.

Police  Sled Pullers  A picturesque figure on the streets  Vancouver at present is Constable J.  A. Connor, of the North West Mount-  .e*cLEolicp._r_JHe_is_notjni_tho^._least__bit_  aware oT the fact beciuise.be bas heen a  member of the force for the last eleven  5'ears and his uniform is as familiar to  him as is the business jacket of nny  city bred person. This is not intended  to mean that Constable Connor is not  familiar with city life, because as a  matter of fact be was brought up in  Toronto himself. The red tunic and  the yellow ' tripeel trousers, the' top  boots and the spurs and the broad  brimmed drab hat are not familiar in  Vancouver, though wo have seen quite  a number of them lately, and hence  people take i\ second look at- Const.  Connor when tbey meet him on the  street. This is partly due, perhaps, to  the facl that he has got one of those  well set up figures that well become n  uniform anrl has a bearing borne of  long service that would attract  attention even if he wore the conventional clothes of those to whom Kipling refers as the poor little street-bred  people. Const. Connor is here in  chai ge of the dogs that are to be sent  north to do mail route service on behalf of the Dominion Government, under the guidance of Ihe North West  Mounted Police. He should know  something about dogs because he has  had several s'e*arsexperipncewith them  tind those he has with him aro some of  them olel friends of his. Thoy have  had hardships together and they have  faced weather that would make some  of us long tor tho fire places of out-  boarding houses or the warm chimnes"  nooks of our city homes. The dogs  are housed in a building west of the  C. P. R. depot, next to the sileof the  building that was at one* time used as  a temporary leper station, and the old  brick basis of the rice cooking pots is  still there. Many people have been  under the impression that tbe clogs  are of a similar breed, being all called  huskies. This was a very natural  mistake to make, because there is a  regular breed of huskies, or Eskimo  dogs, that are used for sled work, anil  Which, being bred to that generation  after generation, take to it nntqrally  and are very easily trained. The dogs  that tbe police are taking north are of  many breeds, There are three that  are "almost pure bred huskies, : the  others are a diversified lot. There are  brindles, St. Bornardn, spaniels, New-  ftundlands and half-a-dozen other  kinds, soine of them described by the  man in charge as being mostly dog.  The sleds and harness for the clogs  are here. The sleds are seven feet  long and will carry 500 lbs. Constable  Connor thinks that a train' of five d~g.~  will go to each sleel. He does not  believe that the proposition to haul  food to Dawson City by dog train If a  feasible one, because for that distance  the clogs could not carry much more  than tbey would consume on the way.  The police will, in time, have supply  depots established along their mail  route so that it will not be necessary  to carry so much foodalong. Jt is not  known when the dogs will get away,  but it is expected that their lirsl task  will be to take Hon. Mr. Sifton, Major  Walsh anel parly through. They have-  all seen service anil were: brought  from tho north shore of lake Superior.  Const. Connor thinks that some of  Ibem may not bitvo iliick enough fur  for llie service Ihey are now going into, but ho uwtl clogs with about as  little fur when at l-'orl Yukon, years  ago, mid also in the Cumberland house  clis-lrict. ��������� Vancouver World.  lle,n'iei jllael.e Kjrir Te-tile-r.

J. Aclkisson, in Practical Farmer.  Uliir-tetiiiir Ksir^.'  At a iiiec'ling of Snowvilli*. Me.,  Grange H. 15. IIo ward spoke upon llie-  question ot how to realize Iho most fiom  eggs. His advice was lo got esgs into  market within twenty-four hours ot  their being laid, then there will he no  reason to complain of the prices received. If you can senel them to market  in such shape that customers can depend on them every lime ns being str'tcU  ly fresh and till alike, there are customers who will take all they can gel the  year round. The egg lhat-is a week olel  is well on the road to being, if not. exactly stale, quite near il. A farmer who  has sent his butter to one place for  eighteen years always gets a gootl price,  for he makes an extra article, and his  customers can depend on the uniformity  of its quality. Tins man had sonio  friends, who nskeil him if he could not  got a market, for thoir eggs at Ibis place-.  ITe replied that thoy could not send ihe  e-ggs fresh enough, for the linn kepi j>  man going over the same lerritoi-.v eve.���������  day to pick up eggs, iu order to make,  mire llml they were slricl.y fri-di foi-  Hie fable. Many farmers do thiagw that,  if they were in the customers' pl.-iee-,  they would bo the first to make n fit-^.i  about, and Ihey surely woultl nev-.-r  trade with one who would give them  the same quality of eggs thai Ihey curry  lo markel themselves. Small, dirty eg-n  nre~not~fir-to"stintl -tn"~miirkc"t���������ns~llicy-  lower the price for the whole ca.se if  there is a ilozon of them put in. The  price for the whole is made by tin,I one  dozen, tind it reacts on the whole of the.  eggs that aro lo be scnl from Hint place*.

HIS FIRST ?ioo  The laic Mr. M assey, who as we all  know was a very successful business  man, is e]uotcd "as having said that  the hardiest nionev to acquire of all  the wealth he had accumulated was  the lirst one hundred dollars. This has  been the experience of numerous  others, several hundred of whom have  said the same at dillVrenl periods during the past fifty years or so. Mr.  Mussev. like those btbeis, was wont  lo add lhat the young man who could  get ahead that amount possessed the  qualities necessary to succeed. There  is a lesson of great value in the fact  mentioned by Mr. Massey. Young  men themselves know how true it is if  tbey have thu i-unlity of self-examination. They have small salaries, and  after living expenses mo (nrovided for  there is Utile "left at the end of the  week or month. It seems such an  insignificant amount that they do not  think it worth while saving il, and so  it goes in some superfluous pleasure or  gratification. It is burning a hole in  thi'ir pockets until they hurry to  get i id of it. Tbey find it impossible  to hold the s.iving of one week or  month until that of another could be  added lo it. Mr. Massey had lhis diili-  cully, just cs hundreds and thousands had before him. But  he resisted the temptation, no doubt  at great .sacrifice* of desire, and in  course of time accumulated what to  most young men sia.'ting outfor themselves on small salaries is a fortune; he  was the proud possessor of "ICO, all his  own, made by himself, and free from  claims of all kinds. He got with this  money his fit st idea of tlie power of it,  and he learned the lesson which he  could never furgel, tbat it was only by  saving the pennies that lhe pound's  accumulated. It was the lesson which  he and all others had and have to  learn to make business success possible.
