B. Hume& Co.  Thu which is now fast drawing  to a close has marked a  ve:ry distinct  advance in the development of   Itevelstoke anil is one on which our  citizens  can   look   hack   with satisfaction and  thankfulness.  'In fact during the past  twelve months   Itevelstoke may fairly  he said to have finally   emerged   fi-e-in  its chrysalis condition of a little frontier town into one of   tht"  most important points in the province*,     It   may  without   exaggeration   he     estimated  that tho population has   nearly   douh-  led  within   the   year and lmilding hns  heen active to keep pace with the constant arrival  of newcomers.    Old   established   firms   have   enlarged their  premises and increased  their accomodation anil several new   ulacesof busi-  uess have opened  with  the   most,   encouraging success.    The new  C. P.  K.  hotel has heen opened without  sensib-  ly   decreasing   the    business   of    the  others and in fact what   is  practically  a new hotel has  heen  also  opened  cm  Front   street.   -Tlie   new  government  building has heen erected and opened,  thanks   greatly   to  the energy of the  late gold   commissioner.    Among  the  crowd   of   new   residences  thnt have  gone up are several   which  vvouid he a  credit  to  the suburbs  of any town in  the province.    Among the   new enterprises started have been   an  extensive  lirewery;  a' branch   of  tho   Imperial  bank, a  hospital,  e-.old   storage warehouses, the   Herald   newspaper and  several   large   wholesale   warehouses.  The waterworks   system   has been extended to the station end of  the town  and a powerful electric plant installed,  which will soon be furnishing light  to  the residences, business places and it  is to be hoped streets of this town.    A  horse street   car   service   has been established and proved a gteat   convenience.    In   fact   Revelstoke   is  quite, a  different   place   to   what   it was even  twelve mouths ago.  The prospects, for the. coming year  are equally bright. . There .is no longer  any doubt that the scheme of centralizing theplaiit nntl officials- of'tlic O.P.  R. iit this point vvill continue to be  gradually carried cm until it becomes  the most important railway centre between the Rockies and the coast,  which will mean a contintiems increase  of population for senue time, and the  development from a large railway  centre into a terminal freight, point  vvill probably be only a matter of  time. As a mining point progress has  been made. Several companies operating hi.thedistriet have opened offices  here and the new act vvill compel  others to follow suit next year. The  pn^pects^f^ictive development in the.  Lardeau and Big BeniV"disTficls next"  year are very favorable and it is possible that tho transportation' problem  vvill be in a great measure overcome  by the placing of a steamer on the  river to run as far as Laporte and the  construction of a railway to tup the  Lardeau country. No doubt the inevitable rush to Klondike next spring  vvill attract some attention away from  this district in common with the  whole of Kootenay, but the companies  already operating vvill continue steadily at the work of development, which  in many eases has now preached a  point at which tangible results may  be reasonably anticipated within the  next year. Active development will  also be pushed on on the ("rmit-Govan  properties up Albert Canyon, and the  companies working up there make a  point of purchasing ther supplies in  out. own market. The "establishment  of a mining camp on a shipping aud  dividend paying basis is a slow process with its ups and down?/ failures  and successes. T'ic obst-icles against  and factors for it are many of them  outside of local control altogether.  The low price of silver for instance,  while deploiable from the broad point  of view of the prosperity of the whole  of Kootenay anel the gold fever, which  the Klondike discoveries thousands of  miles away have induced in all classes  of society iu tho old country and the  east, will no doubt turn the attention  of investors to the gold hearing leads  North Kootenay and help to bring the  district into prominence.  Judging from the past and with the  most conservative estimate of the outlook for the future, the people of Revcl-  I stoke have every reason to congratulate', themselves on the favorable position now occupied by this place and the  Hkrald, which with the close of 1S97  ends the first twelve months of its ex-  istance...feels" that it may vyithout any  sense of. inappropriateness, wish its  readers, wliich is synonymous with thi  LATEST FROM KLONDIKE  (From Our Sonttle Corro->|Kinilcnt.)

Bring on your seven-fold con-' ���������  deumation of Tiirnerisin,* which was  temporarily suppressed by the "patch-"  iiifc   up" process,  but   which;  having  risen superior to the patches,'you now  owe to'the public and yourself to dis-"  close.���������Columbian.  Considerable   indignation has  been  caused among the Revelstoke Liberals  by Che appointment of John.  D. Sibbald, a Conservative,  to  the lucrative  position of Gold Commissioner for the*  north ridingof West Kootenay.    Although Rossland is in the north riding  our people have nothing-to say in   tho  matter, as the ������old  Commissioner at  Nelson attends to all Trail Creek  liusi-'  ness,   Mr. Kellie, the member for the'  riding, who is a Liberal/ has written a"  letter So both1 of the  local  papers,  in  which he states that on account of not.  being consulted in the appointment of "  Gold Commissioner he lenounces his'  allegiance  to  the  Government.     The  Mail is an  ultra-Liberal,* and accuses  the Hekald, the Conservative organ,-  Of being bought by the Turner Govern-'  ment.   It points out in a veiled man-'  tier that as the Hkrald supports the  appointment? of .Mr.- Sibbald,   it  must"  be in the pay of the Government, nnd"  because the Herald and  Mr.  Sibbald"  are Conservative, the Government must'  be Conservative too.     But the .Mail  .doesn't say as much osthis.-  It vvouid '  'frighten-'off' the���������Conservative,.allies  Avhose help, is being depended upon  iu-  the forthcoming-slaughter of the Turner GoveJrnment.   It is"a'ticklish sub-'  ject for the Mail to handle.    If" it succeeds in proving the Government Con-'"  -'servative, then good-bye to the expect-"  ed help from Seinlin, Cotton and other  Conservatives in the Opposition'ranks.  The Mail may gloss over the fact" as"  much as it likes, it still- remains patent  to the keen observer that the Government is  Conservative.    How  could  it*  be otherwise when the chief plank  in  the Liberal plntfoim recently forum-'  lated'at New Westminster was to .the  "ertFe-tr"t,hiitj���������the���������Tiiriier-Governnicnti-^.

Presuming that divorced  should    be    granted   at   all,   the  Wiliest  does    not   seem    tin   tin  reasonable   one.      It  in   conceded  that the present system of obtaining legal relief from lho failure ol'  marriage at   the    hands   of    the  Senate"   is.    very     absurd      anil  expensive,   and   if  divot ce   i.~   to  become a recognized institution iu  Canada, there should be a court  accessible to the poor as well as to  the rich, at, the same time that the  rules should   be so framed  as to  guard again'tanysuch condition oI  things as obtaius today in many  states    of    the    union.     Ac   the  prespnfc     time      one      American  marriage in every twelve ends in a  divorce,   and   marriage .is   very  friquently   looked    upon    a*i   an  experiment which  if   unpleasant  can   alvvav=   bo   rectified   by  the  courts.       Eighty     per    cent    of  American divorces are grunt ed on  the petition of   the   wife,   either  because it is she who feels, most  sorely the burden of an unhappy  marriage, or bec:iu=e she prefers  another (with a  capital A) .o her  lawful husband, who is uiuler the  circumstances only too ivilliug to  plead    guilty   to   some   fictitious  charge.  The Archbishop of Canterbury  has recently forbidden his clergy  to remarry divorced peoplo, and as  a consequence divorce even in  England is on the decline. If we  "~~"are���������to���������ha ve-it-in-C-uiadii,-by-all-  in ean~ let us have it "as they have  it in England"���������not in America.  l;:ilit:u    e.f    till..

December Lit.���������There is  much speculation heie as to what vvill  bo the outcome of the. action of the  United States iu sending alleged relief to the Yukon. Cablegrams from  London state that tho I'nglish papers  arc severely critii'.i'/.'mg the motives of  the Yankees and broadly hinting lhat  the relief expedition is a mere cloak  for the carrying out, of some ulterior  purpose. Simultaneously with the  announcement in (he American papers  that n. considerable body of armed men  would be sent in with the relief stores  the Dominion Government decided to  increase the Mounted Police force in  the Yukon to i~U men. That theie is  no adequate reason for the Americans  sending in i ehef is evident from the  fact that, there are novv very few  miners left in Alaska. Circle City  having been desei led at the the time  Uie-sKlondiko rush commenced. At  Port Yukon. Where- several steamers  are frozen in the ice, there is an abundance of provisions and news has just  been received hero that 2,000 men are  novv travelling down therivei to that  point from Dawson City. This vvill  greatly relieve the situation and it is  ���������well known that, there will be ample  fond in Dawson for those who remain.  What therefore is the object of tlie  American Government in sending lhe  a relief expedition is a mystery wliich  in view of the military force accom-  p.inyingcit contains a suspicious element.

WiNNil'Kii,December 27���������The Pope's  encyclical published on Friday night  last condemns the school settlement  on the grounds that it does not sufficiently restore to tho Catholic minority Iheir rights in Manitoba. After  recalling the religious history of Canada and eulcgi/.ing its'scholastic insti-  slulions; his holiness expresses regret  at the decisions taken seven years ago  in Manitoba, relative to the Catholic  schools and points nut the rights of  Catholics, according lo the .Federal  agreement. ' Continuing tho Pope  condemns the school system, based on  religious neutrality, praises tho zeal  ot the bishops displayed on this question, regrets that Catholics arc not  equally united owing to political passions, and admits that the authorities  have clone something to diminish the  inconyeniences of the Manitoba government school legislation, but his  holiness declares this to be inadequate  and. exhorts Catholics to persist in  churning all their rights, though thoy  must not refuse any partial reparations obtainable, witli tlie view to reduce the perils of the education of  youth.  ." In conclusion, the pope, in the encyclical, siiys lhat in the event of these  being unobtainable, Catholics should  piov ide their awn schools, and adopt  under the guidance of their bishop, a  prngrninnio of study, reconciling it  with their religion and all scientific  progress.

'Kellie has  not  Ix.'eu on very conlial  terms   with  certain members ot the Government for a  long.time post,    fie woulel notgo with  the Government in 'giving "any more  land subsidies  to  railway  companies.  Moreover, there is little doubt that Mr.  Kellie has aspii-ttions towards the  remunerative post of Gold Commissioner  for thu north rieiing.    He h.-ts been east  for  the   past   ineinth  or  two,   during  which time he buried  his  father and  had a spell of sickness,  and  now he  comes back to find a new  man  filling  the berth that he imagined his service  to the Government entitled him.  ��������� Mr. Sibbald" is a Conservative,   hut  no ������K)Ssl>ack.    He is a  man.: of good  edcicatron   and considerable abilities,  ami it likely to fill the position of Gold  Co-nunissioner with credit.  "f. M. "Graham, who has resigned t he  Gold Coniiii|ssr<mership of North Kootenay to take the position of manager  of the Waverley Mines, near Albert  Canyon, is a gocn" example of a self-  made man in this "western country.
