Hated this ailh elay of October, 1MI7.  ,   F.S. IIARNAR1).  The civic committee appointeel at  the last public mt'i'tin.^ held in IMcr-  snn's hall have decided tti start tlu*  L'ii't'iil.'ilinn of a petition whicli will  constitute the first step towards in-  corptii-.-itioii, anil wiuilil h.ivi: to  receive sigiiiittiit-.s repi't'.s,eiiting tin-  value of two-thirds of the land in the  ai'Pti which it is pi'opo.-ietl to ini-oi'ptu--  Jitu. Under the conditions which  unfortunately 'prevail here it'soonis,  however, that the petition in (pit'stion  will have to lie one asking for special  legislation to entilile us to become incorporated, and 'which I'leniii'i'  Turner, when here, distinctly .stated  in his interview with tlu: lio.'.nl of  Ir.idi* that such legislation to meet our  special requirements could lie obtained. The government are strongly  iu favor of towns like this getting out  of the provincial leading strings tuitl  assuuiiing the privileges and tvspuiisi-  liilities of self government,- even  including, if they so desire, the management and control of their own  schools, subject of course to the supervision of the Superintendent .of Education. There does not therefore  seem to be anything to be apprehended on (his score.  The petition therefore which the  committee are now getting up will  only be the first step on the road.  An}* special legislation will cont-iin a  clause for another petition, asking to  be allowed to lake advantage'of the  act anti to be incorporated, It will of  course specifically mention by whom  such petition will have .to be signed,  and what amount of property the  signatures inu*>t'represent. -In the  special act by whicli-'Nelsiin, Rossl.-md  and Grand Forks were incorporated,  the petition for incorporation had to  signed by the owners in fee simple, as  shown by the register, of. more than  one half of the.value of the land proposed to be included in the municipality, the value being' ascertained by  the last) provincial assessment roll. It  also piovided that the r-ost, of procuring incorporation,might be paitl tint of  .tlie-revonue.of the new city. ���������       '    --.  As far as the present, petition is  concerned, it seems that if it were  signed by a majority of the resident  property owners "and householders,  every condition of fairness woultl be  satisfied. It. is open to those who oppose t he project to get up a counter  petition against it, and the government will then be able to see if the  feeling in favor of incorporation  among the responsible residents of  this place i.s in their opinion strong  enough to justify the legislature in  passing a special act to enable us to  incorporate.

It. is tilso interesting to rental k that the platform makes ample  provision for a continuance of the  present condition of affairs. Grants  of lands are still lo be given iu aid of  railways under thej Cirit reg'ine. the  only difference being- that the Grits  will make the grants. "Vou put us in  power and watch the way that we,  the party of honesty, purity and till  the. other virtues, make grants of land  tn railways, is about what it amounts  to. This kind of political slush wtis  swallowed in large doses in the early  part of 1SS95, but it takes an awful lot  of stilt to make it go down now. It  there i-J any difference between the  Grit and Tory policy in the Dominion  House with regard to railway construction it is scarcely pelcoptible to  the naked eye. with the possible exception that the Drummond railway  steal is ii good deal ranker than anything in lhat line, to whicli the Dominion has hitherto been treated.  In short the Herald would expect  a Grit regime at Victoria to hatch a  policy of state ownership of railways  out of this lii'st egg in the basket,about  the same timejheir fellow politicians  at Ottawa, give Canada lhat "free  trade as they have it in England.",  which was to.be the salvation of the  country��������� hi foi e the elections. And as  their first step towards this result only  succeeded in reducing the tariff as a  whole" one-eighth of one per cent., it  seems more than likely that the Dominion will have, to wait a long^vhile  for free trade, and the "province as  long before it owned its railways.

HA UNA III).  Scj't '.'���������.'-"t  GOVERNMENT-^RAILrWAYS  The first plunk in the Grit manifesto  is the adoption of a"policy directed towards the ultimate ownership of railways by the government. Now the  state, ownership of railways is a measure, which has ;been already adopted  with considerable success, in Hungary.  Belgium, Germany and Australia. It  has been found to bea success in every  iustanee. In Hungary the fare is six  miles for one cent and "the employes  wages have been doubled since lhe  government bought the roads. In  Belgium fares and freight rales have  been cut down one half, employes'  doubled and the roads pay a. yearly  revenue to the state of four million  dollars. In Germany you can ride  four miles, for one. cent, wages are over  125 per cent, higlier than they were  under private ownership and tho profits on the roads last year wtis $ "5,000,-  000. In New Soul h ^ Wales, where the  conditions are more like our own, as  unproductive lines have to be opened  up to develop the interior of (he colony and the population is small and  scattered over vast area, the results of  state management have been very  encouraging. The lines arc controlled  by the Railway Commissioners, a  purely non-political body and conducted on business principles. Net earnings have increased and fares have  been reduced, while the .existing lines  themselves have, been put in a greater  state of efliciency and extended. The  state ownership of railways is demonstrably within ths range of prsctical  politics and it is a policy which in the  opinion of the Herald this province  should follow the lead of its sisteii. in  Australia iu adopting.  The Great Western  c This company owns three claims on  the north arm of Arrow lake, the  Cracker Jack, Great Western and  Young Canuck. They are situated  one above the other on t bedside of a  mountain running down, to -.the-Jake.  Three parallel ledges of concentrating  ore run up and*down the' side.of the  hill through the three claims. Development work has been done ou tins  property with it view to ascertaining  whether ore enough exists to justify  building a concentrator. On the middle claim, the Great Western, 150 ,1'eet  of a tunnel has been rim on the centre  ledge, which will be completed by  crossciitting each way 50 feet to strike  tlie parallel ledge.. The same work  will lie done on "'each of the other  claim'*, which it is expected will tak<*  four or live months. Development on  the Great Western has" been- very  satisfactory so far, and there is considerable concentrating ore in sight.  Thiee men have been working all  summer on the tunnel, and tire still at  work. Arrangements are now almost  .cumpleted-by-whicli-t he-Net tie-Li.-.'ind-  Aiaybi', two'claims on tlie Pool gioup  near Feigiisou. will be acquired by  the Great Western company. These  claims are gold-bearing, an average of  the assays lrom them going 45 to 50  oz. in silver, and from .fi25t_ to $30 in  gold. They are also lich in 'copper.  If the three claims on the Great Western turn out satisfactorily, as it is  reasonably expected they will, these  claims on'the Pool group, which as  fur as surface indications can go, are  two of the most promising in the L.:ir-  ileau.'will he developed al once and a  conceiitiator built to serve hol.Ii, properties. ^^  The World-La Dell Concert  The World-La Dell concert, given  under the auspices of the Epworth  League in the Methodist church on  Thursday evening, was a treat such as  Revelstoke lovers of music rarely get  an opptntunity to attend. The cliiuili  was crowded lo the doors. Miss  Frances World fully justified her title  of Ihe Canadian Nightingale. J let-  voice is of great strength, compass!  nml sweetness, and her rendering of  lier songs full of feeling mid expression, yiie was accompanied in a  masterly way bv Mrs. Allen. Miss  MnrieltiiiLii Dell's numbers kept tin*  audience entertained and amused  from beginning to end. Her power of  mimicry of children was excellently  exemplified in the '���������Exercise Day at  School." and the Delsartean posing  was full of grace. ���������and picturesque  beauty. Mrs. Melville fairly captured  tin; houtp with her piano solo, which  was quite a feature in an evening so  fully taken up by such imported talent as those two queens of art,Frances  World and Marietta La Dell. The  Epworth League may he congratulated on their success in providing the  Revelstoke with such a splendid evening's entertainment.  A   SILVER   COMBINATION  May Likely be Formed Which Will  Prevent Erratic Movements in the  Silver Market  New York, Nov. 22.���������7.he leading  silver inleresls in this country have  started on a new tack, which may  bring them into a combination for  their mutual benefit. Representative*,  of these interests, which handle practically tin' whole output, are now in  the city, and several meetings between them have been planned for the  coming week. -The object of the  meetings will be to devise plans looking ' toward the betterment of the  business generally, and a possible  combination, or trust as it really  woultl be, would enable those -concerned to conliol the price at least in  a measure, ar.d keep it from sudden  erratic movements, su'.-h as have characterized the silver market recently.  It has been suggested that the proposed combination woultl be a joint  selling agency. The present system  of selling silver l'-ir Inline delivery,  before it has been smelted from ore,  is said to be unprofitable to smelters,  owing to the fact that, the price obtained is invariably lower than the  actual market price. Those who are  said to be inteiested were not willing  to give any detailed statement yes. tei-  day, and uo information about the  place wheie the meeting will be held  was given out.  .TERRITORIAL  David White, a young commercial  traveller of Winnipeg, who ttt one  time was manager of a largediy good's  establishment called the Atradome at  Calgary, committed suicide" in the  Winnipeg General Hospital, on Saturday. He was suffering , from intermit tent alcoholism. *  The recent cold caused the formation  of ice on portions of the Belly river  and 'effected a. sudden rise of water,  wliich flooded two railroad construct-  camps near'Lethbridge. Thirty men  nnriowly escaped with their lives.  The rise was so rapid that two meri  were imprisoned-'in a tent for two  hours. By climbing the tent pole,  tearing ti hole in the canvass and wading, through one hundred yards of  ice cold water they were saved from  certain death.-^ Several men were had-  lyifrost bitten.^lhe foreman.

Winnipeg Free Press: The ~1 hills  of the new Dominion issue, are not  safe to leave in circulation. The  ground work is.the same as that of the  revenue stamps used on' cigar boxes,  and by simply cutting out a figure'  from the latter and pasting it over the  figure 1 of the bill a five dollar bill can  be manufaetured_that will be accepted  ninety-nine times out of one hundred  without detection. Several of such  bills have been passed in the city and  people should examine five dollar, bills  closely to see lhat they are not- taking  a one. Business men think lhat the  new bills should be recalled, and alterations made whereby the raiding of  ones to fives hy Ihe moans described  would be rendered impossible.  THE SKAGWAY TRAIL  A TOLL ROAD TO BE BUILT BY  THE PROVINCE .  That is one thing, but a policy directed towards the ultimate ownership  of railways by tbe government is another.

This steamer  plies on two lakes near the city, which  are separated   by   a   narrow   isthmus  between SOO and 000 feet across. Across  this neck of land  a  railway  has  been  built, aud the steamboat after traversing one of the lakes comes out of the  water at a small dock, where the front  two of four wheels with which she  is  provided, and which aie worked  by  a.  supplementary shaft, grip the rails and ���������  she crawls out onthc  land,  becoming,  converted    for    the     nonce     into   :t -  steamer.       Tbe     hind      wheels     are  not attached to the shaft, but are  in--  tended  to keep the  boat on the rails  and ate titled with a  brake  to steady  her descent into the watei-. The Swan. -  which is the name of the amphibious  boat,   as  her  proprietors   call   her, i.-t:  nearly   41   feet  long   and draws from'  li to .JJ  leet  of water.    She can cmtv"  84 p-issengeis tind weighs fully  loaded ;  15, when  empty  IH tons.   Two  hand *  levers control her. when on  land, the*  one putting in motion the iwheel shaft "  by means of a shifting clutch and the  other to  press  the  brake on the hind -  wheels.    During, the   post three summers she has carried  over 40,000   people, without accident.  It seems to lhe Herald that in this  little ple.isuie bout is contained it  simple principle, which m%ht be  adapted so as to go a long way towards  the solution of the portage question  on the rapid infested rivers of the  Canadian West.  * Pretty and comfortable  children's  little fur sets at Coursier's.

The  greatest hopes were cherished that  in regard to the most important  question that was to be brought  before him���������the inland route to  the Yukon���������he   would   hold  out  some "substantial   encouragement  that   the  Dominion  Government  would lose no time improving and  opening it for next season's trafiic,  which is certain to be enormous.  Yet both here and at Edmonton  he tried to convince us that the  best    route    was    the   proposed  C.P.R. steamboat,   rail   aud  ratt  route via the Stickine river.   He  even went the length of telling the  people  of Edmonton   that   they  could  not hope to compete  with  that road in the matter of heavy  freight, but he forgot to tell his  audience that  after having; been  taken several hundred mites  by  steamer and narrow guage railway  the aforesaid heavy freight would  have to be carried seveial hundred  miles further on rafts   and small  boats.    All   Mr. Sifton   promised  was that if the Calgary and Edmonton route were proved feasible  he would recommend the government to.put in a pack trail.   This  may be good enough as far as it  goes, biit it should be remembered  that the government had plsnty  ___of_time'and mon_ey this summer  and   fall   to" do    all   Mr.   Sifton  promised���������and more.     One single  item   of  Major  Walsh's   expense  bill���������835,000 for   tbe transport of  his-outfit to Lake Tagish-^- would  have been sufficient to open a pack  trail, nay more, a cart trail, from  Edmonton to the Pelly river.   The  argument that  it was   necessary  for. him  to   get   on   the  ground  before winter was knocked silly by  the fact that he is stuck ou the  trail    somewhere     beyond     the  Chilcoot Pass and has been compelled   to   build   winter  quarters  and wait for open water iu  the  spring.    He could   have  clone at  least   as much    as  this    on  the  eastern trail and it is not improbable that Inspector Moody's party  will even yet reach Dawson before  the Commissioner.   There is a suspicious disinclination on the part  of those.) in authority to   believe  anything good of the inland route,  and we have to face the fact that  some    of    the    most     powerful  influences in Canada  are against  that route.   And yet we have the  testimony of tke   Montreal   Star  and other authorities that a route  east of the mountains is the only  one that will ensure the trade of  the Yukon to Canadian---, a   fact  indeed which is evident   to   any  man    with    half   an   eye.     The  Stickine route will be a route for  the Americans.   While they have  already an all water route via the  Yukon river, and a choice of routes  over   the    Chilcoot   and    White  passes, our patriotic  government  uroposes to assist the C. P. R. in  giving them another inlet via the  Stickine.     It  would  be   safe   to  wager  that  SO  per  cent of   the  goods taken   in   by the   Stickine  route  will   be    supplied   by   the  merchants and manufacturers of  the United States.   The member  for Nort'i Edmonton made some  invidious    comparisons     in    his  -tump  speech    at the    Board   of  Trade banquet between what the  present government anrl its Conservative predecessors   had  done  for Alberta.     It    would    be  interesting, to hear from him how  their present policy in regard  to  the    Yukon    is    helping   either  Alberta      or     the       Dominion  generally.  In a recent editorial we had  occasion to allude to the practice  of certain ranchers of depending  for a calf crop on the bulls ranging  in their vicinity. . The practice,  we grant, is not common. But the  fact that it is at all possible seems  to point to a need for legislation  on the subject. Why should one  settler go to the expense of importing an animal for another's  use? The practice would not be  so culpable if it did not lead to the  deterioration of tho bulls; but it  does���������as many a stockman knows  to his cost. Mr. Hauitain has  promised reform in the stock laws.  We trust he will not overlook this  point. A regulation should be  enacted whereby every rancher  should be obliged to keep bulls in  proportion to the number of his  female cattle. There is no more  reason why one man should have  ENDORSED    BY    LONSDALE  THE    CALGARY    PEACE    RIVER  ROUTE THE BEST  -~^r-  Letter From Earl Lonsdale Wh" Made  the Trip in the Winter of the Year  188S.

II-r three husbands  all worked for the R. to (1. and belonged to r.ailro-ad brotherhoods, and hence  were entitled to death benefits and insurance when they were successively  killed on the rail. The first was a conductor, who died some years back, and  his widow received $1,500 from the  company and the Order of "ailroad  Conductors. The next was an ,eneiri-  ecr, and he in turn was killed, ~2,fi"l  following the event. Again it was an  engineer, and the death benefit this  time $2,500. It.is safe to say that the  widow's next spouse, if the proverbial superstition among railroadersdocs  not defeat her good intentions, will  also be a railroad man.  Qtiorn.

The Appalachian Mountain Club of  I.oston is looking forward with great  interest to the coming ot Prince l.ttigi  r,t Italy, and is preparing the outfit for  lhe trip of h!s party to Mount St. Elian,  the giant of the Alaskan border. Tha  summit of the mountain litis never 'jeeu  reached by man, and if the Prince succeeds in scaling its topmost peak it will  be a great addition to his laurels tta  an Alpine climber. Prnf. Fay of -he  Appalachians litis been furnishing information to the Priuce iu regard to the  mountain and the desolate region iu  which It lies. Prince Luigi, whose fall  name is Luigi Amndeo ot Savoy, Duke  of Ahruzzi, is a nephew of King Humbert. He was in Boston a few months  ago ns one of the officers of an Italian  war vessel. Vittorio Sella, who litis a  great reputation as n mountain photographer, and also comes of a noble family, will be the principal companion of  the Prince, and will endeaveor 'ki carry  to tbe summit a camera that has a  10t]2 plate. He once scaled the pe.ik  of Elbruz. 3000 feet higher than M-mt  Blanc. Several other well-known Italians will be members of the party, which  will also include five professional guides  and ti retinue of porters, twenty-five men,  in all. Jt will be the best equipped cv-  plorhiR expedition that has ever entered  the dislrict.  Eleven years ago the first expedition  to the legion was sent out by a JNeM  Vork newspaper, which equipped bch-  wnlkti and Seton-Knrr for the trip. ' A  height of 7200 feet was reached, icss  than half the actual height of the mountain, mid this ou foothills which have  since been called the Karr hills. In  1SSS Toplinn and a few friends made .in  exploration in the region. In 3890 the  National Geographical Society of Washington, in co-operation with tbo Government, sent out Prof. Israel C. It.us-  6ell. This interpid explorer and his companion remained thirty-five days Above  "to snow lino,-and at one time Russell  wtis for a number of days alone at the  highest camp, where he was covered with  so great a full of snow that lie was com-  pnllod to tunnel his way out. Two years  Inter Russell made a second trip with  the Government's aid and attained a  height of nbottt 12,000 feet. It will hi  seen tl*at between the highest point attained nnd the summit theie lies an itn-  portnnl climb, which tbe mountaineers  of the world have not lost sight of. T'Cie  Government is about Ui scud another  expedition to Mount St. Elias.  . The peak was first sem by Berini" in  1741, and received its nnmo nt that time.  The latest estimate of its height is 1-V  000 feet, which makes it the highest  mountain on the continent. From St.  Elias there extends to tho shore tho  great Mnlsnpina glacier, a. level ice Held  larger than the State of Delaware, the  motion of which is so slow that the moraines havo become covered with forests  of trees.  The Italian expedition will leave Boston iu th������ latter part of May and will  moke the start from Seattle on June 13.  SO WNS FOR A BRIDE.  iVHIMS AMD FANCIES OF FASHION IH  THE TROUSSEAU.  How to Muke Hens Pay,  Having been a breeder for thirty-five  years of pure-bred fowls, I wish to write  a few observations, says H. A. Daniels,  in London  Farmer's Advocate:  1. I, have kept 100 to ]2o hens for  several years on SO acres profitably hy  having four houses some rods apart. I  have learned I can keep four times us  many hens and make them profitable iu  four houses as I can in one.  2. I have found a cross of "W". Leghorn and W.

Wo always place tho windows on the  sill so the heat will reflect on the hens  nny sunshiny day in winter, and win-  flows being-low down keeps Hi* house  cool  in  summer.  8. I have practiced dipping my hens  nt least twice in suniinei* for the last  few years; it pays as well as to dip  sheep for vermin, and I would rather  flip 100 hens than 5 sheep. .

Just at present weddings have the lead  in liisliionabli. lostivitii's, nnel balls and  parties are lhe inn* exception ; but the  search after novelties in dress goes on.  liko'the biook, forever. Owing to the  tendency this senstin to revive some of  the special characteristics of fashion  sixty yenrx :iw>. then' i.s unlimited variety in style. iipiI we nave trimmed anti  flounced skirts, sloping shoulders, sashes,  fichus, and feather-trimmed hats in all  their varying forms. Paris, as well as  London, is nutting forth every effort to  harmonizi.' the,early Victorian modes  with   modern   taste   and   necessities   of  dress, and oltl books and fashion plates  oro sought after by the dresimnkers to  aid them in carrying out the season's  scheme of dress with modifications in  honor of the Queen's jubilee. Fashion,  like history, repeats itself, but rarely on  the old lines, us the oltl ideas are not  snited to the new conditions of life. It  is interesting, however, to notice the new  adaptations of old fashions and the variety of pretty- effects which modern  tasle can produce.  The conventional wedding gown of  white ��������� satin, with chillon aud lace for  decoration, i.s not.a subject for great variety in style ; but the trousseau, ns a  means of displaying all the whims and  fancies, of fashion, offers a field for operations which leaves nothing to be desired. First on the list is the evening  dress. Satin, either plain or brocaded,  colored or white, and often veiled with  thin gauze, is the material most generally employed ; yet erepe do chine, Liberty gauze, transparent stuffs of all  kinds, und flowered taffetas are all in  favor. AJ pretty evening dress in one  trousseau was of pale grey crepe de clime,  in the dove shade so popular this season,  made ever palj pink silk. Steel sequins  set around flit* skirt in irregular van-  dykes at the hem and just below the  waist were the trimming, and these appeared again on the full bodice in the  same form. A thick band of sequins  trimmed the low-cut ncc* and a band of  pink satin ribbon formed the belt. The.  sleeves, of shirred erepe de chine, were  long and transparent, with narrow st*-  quin-trimmed frills at the top. I'ink tulle  over pink satin, and trimmed with ruches  ���������f-narrow pink satin ribbon, forms another und more girlish gown,"and the  sleeves'1 are short, buttcnly bows of  dainty luce. A wide belt of pink satin  and a half-moon arrangement of shaded  pink roses nt one side of the bodice complete the decoration. A rope c" flowers  caught at the wai������t on one side and at  the neck on the tit her is one form of  floral garniture, and a fiinge of some  fine flower around the neck, forming a,  bertha, is another ; for this violets are  especially pretty.  A pretty feature of the new evening  dresses i.s the long, soft scarf of chiffon.  It may be black, white or colored, and  the black and white sashes are made  very effcclive by dotting them over with  applique figures of lace in contrast, black  and white and the reverse. Plain chiffon, with a frill of lace ull around the  edge, is also used, and 'the sashes, of  White organdie, have innumerable rows  of narrow lace i-isertion across the edge.

As an old Cariboo miner, he  is most emphatic in his cruidumuatioii  of both the proposed royalty tin the  output. uT gold, .-ind the 'proposed reservation of claims in tlie Yukon. The  British Columbia government tried to  collect a royalty of-half a crown an  ounce on gold in Cariboo in 1S(>2, and  the miners .flatly refused tn pay it.  though tbey cheerfully paid their  school and other taxes. He thinks  that there would be no ditliculty in  collecting a good stiff figure, for miners' licenses and taxes to pav for improvements on the routes into and  through the country, but. that the  collection of the royalty will be found  impracticable.
