THE LOST MINE RACKET  An   Old   Prospector's   Opinion on   This  Glittering Image of Mining Life.  " Well," said M'ic, " In all my experience, which   has   been   a   long one, I  don't think that I have   ever been iu a  mining camp yet, without there was  some yarn about a lost   mine or placer  digging in it.   I have come to the conclusion that in many cases the area, in  which thesupposed claim wasisso small  that it must have  been  discovered, if  there was anything iu it.   But   I have  iievor known  of one being found yet  and 1 have decided that it i.s  a saving  both  of time and   money to let these  lost claims alone and  go  to work to  hunt up ii claim of one's own.   When  I was at Wrangel a deathbed disclosure was made by an old prospector to  a druggist there whom I know well, of a  claim lying halfway between Wrangel  and  Juneau   back   of the first range,  where at the mouth of a creek emptying into a small lake, the dying man  had   picked, up, coarse gold hy hand.  Over fifty parties must have gone out  to look for this place first and last, and  though the area was limited, being a  strip of country  about 20 miles long,  no one ever struck it, though two men  claimed tii have found  the  lake.   The  story got into the New York papers  about two  years ago and there was a  wild hurrah over it.    One  smart New-  Yorker organized a company to bunt  up  tlie  claim   and   then skipped out  with  the   boodle.    It   vvas curious too  that   the  dead  miner   believed in  it  himself all  right enough, as when he  died at Wrangel he was intending to  start for the claim.   But it was never  found.   And I  have never known of  one of them that was."  A  RTHUR G. M. SPRAGGE,  Barrister. Solicitor, &c.  Notary Public.  Office upstairs In Sr.iItli'H block. Pacific Avo.  Revelstoke Station. B.  C.

NOTE AND COMMENT  The petition to the Provincial Hnuse  to incovparati*. this town   is   being circulated  with   great  success.    So   fur  only  about a dozen  ratepayers have  refused point blank to sign it.    It will  not be possible to put the  (jiti'sUcm   to  eveiy ratepayer on the  list.    A  number of theni are ont of town,  and  will  have to  submit   to   the   vote   of   the  majority of the resident ratepayers,  the same way as  non-residents do in  any municipality.    Even among those,  who have not signed, not all are directly opposed te the  project.   Some  declared themselves as neither for nor  against it, while others,  though  they  approve of the idea,   will  not play in  the   incorporation committee's backyard any more, because they think incorporation should have  been  carried  out  a   year   ago.     Neither    position  recommends itself to  the Herald ns  a particularly   farsighted one, but the  fact   that   there   are   people   holding  them,      shews    that       the       direct  opposition        to       incorporation     is  very   limitedi    ndeed.       The    Herald    has    not     hesitated      to , express its opinion that in  with-holding  tlie petition from the  people so  long,  the committee were simply balking at  bogies of their own creation and  were  traversing the wishes of the majority  of the ratepayers.   The readiness with  which the petition has met with signature is abundant proof that our position was the right one.   A nd.we have  not the smallest  doubt   that   in   the  long run, even the present opponents  of incorporation will recognize that in  advocating incorporation for this place  tho Herald whs promoting tbe best  interests of the town and  that events  will   prove  that  o'lr anticipations  of  the benefits to result from it were not  over sanguine or exaggerated.  The Mail wants to know- why the  Herald advises Mr. Turner's friends  in town to put the river bank protection case before him and Mr. Bos-  toe-k's Liberal supporters to apply a  gentle pressure to him to take* the  same matter up again. In the fairy  dreamland in which the Mail has its  existence such advice sounds no doubt  crude and coarse. Still in practical  politics as at present constituted in  tliis Doiniinion the cold fact remains  that the political friends of any government are the people, who can put  the most effectual screw on it. This  state, of affairs may not be. exactly in  accordance with the ethics of government as expounded in the text books.  Hut it will be found a fairly sound  working rule to apply all the same.  _We_are_iiol_tal'ing_(-uite_so_m(ich stock  as we used in ethics anyhow. Common  horse sense conies pretty near being  good enough for this great moral  semi-weekly family educator.  MINING ENGINEERS  MEET AT VANCOUVER FROM  ALL OVER THE DOMINION.  The Hall Mines Smelter Representative  Declares That Slocan Ores Cannot  be Profitably Treated Except in the  States. ��������� But Trail and Boundary  Creek Ores Can be Cheaply Smelted  on This Side. ���������Mrs. Sternaman Granted a New Trial.  (Special to the Hekald )  Vancouvei". Jan. 10.���������Mining engineers and mining men from all over  the province and as far east as Halifax and Ottawa met at the call of the  officers of the B.C. branch of the Federate Mining Institute tonight. Mr.  Black more of Halifax, presided. It  was explained that 400 mining engineers, composing the association,  had allied themselves to shape mining  legislation in Canada and prevent wild-  catting, etc. Six papers ' were read  which vvill be discused at length at the  general meeting of the entire society  in Alontreal next month. K. A. Hurt-  ley, manager of the Hall mines smelter, stated in his paper that the best  and only way to treat the lead on*, of  the Slocan country was to reduce it to  matte and ship to the states, and that  it would not pay to refine it in Canada.  As regards Rossland a 500 ton plant  with coke* at $1"! a ton could .smelt ore  at $2.93. This statement caused much  criticism. He said also that !?lt ore  could be made to pay profitably in the  Boundary country and that with the  abundance ol fluxing ore found there  the. cost of smelting would not be  more than $2.75 ton. The other  papers rend were on Mining Machinery  by, Howard,AVest; Mining Laws by  J. F. Moncton; Practical Cyanide  Work in Australia byA.S. Edgscombe,  and Mining Laws by Frank Lorens.  -Montreal.

A   DEATH IJED RErENTENCE  While it is gratifying to note the  stand taken by Mr. J. Al. Kellie, AL P.  P., it is to be regretted that he did not  see the error of his ways sooner, for,  considering the close proximity of ii  general election, his action does not  savor of that of a man in whom we  con place much confidence, and it  would be well for his constituents to  give his actions due consideration, and  as they had resolved not to re-elect  him as a government supporter, they  should still "let him flicker." We  have no faith in death bed repentance  for the purpose of effecting a cure, for  they show the spirit of the ooward.���������  Barkerville correspondent of the Inland Sentinel.  THE ORPHAN BOY  Presumably the Orphan Boy undertaking will in due course be reorganized, and the claim for the first time  really tested. This, too, let us hope,  after the experience of the past by  straigbtforwaid and efficient methods.

COURSIERJN HIMSELF  To llie Keliieir ot tlie Hkrald:  Siii :���������In your comments lust. Saturday on a letter from Air. F. Fraser  you insinuate that I was implicated in  the compilation, if not the sole author  of the above mentioned communication. Now, Sir, no one knows better  than yourself that at. the lime of  handing you the epistle in question,  I plainly and straightforwardly explained the circumstances by which  it passed through my hands. 1 therefore consider your remarks relative  thereto were* as uncalled for as your  presumption was groundless. Surely  legitimate items of real interest are  not so scarce that a simple act of  courtesy must be miscontrued to furnish matter for almost a column of  un philosophic accusations.  Yours truly,  H. N. Coursier.  [Mr. Coursier's conscience must be  an uneasy one. The Herald simply  stated that he brought in the communication signed by Mr. Fraser,  open in his hand. What the Heilvld  did not-add, though it might have,  was that the letter vvas scarcely in the  editor's hands, . before Air. Coursier  launched out into a defence of the  position taken by the writer that by  publishing the extract from the Times  the Hekald endorsed its contents.  He certainly knew the drift of the  communication, tr say the least of it,  and was in sympathy with it to the  full extent of being very anxious to see  it published. This coupled wilh the  further remarkable circumstance that  the written signature of the letter vvas  placed three inches below its type  written contents, a very unusual position for a signature, to put it mildly,  led the Herald to suspicions about  the exact source of the communication, which in our opinion were entirely justified by the circumstances.  However, Air. Coursier, denies having  anything to do with it; except in so  far that.it wi-ssenb_.toJjini_wi_d_thaD_lie  fetched it over, anil Air. Fraser asserts  lhat he was the sole author, and tliere  is an end of it.���������Ed. Herald.]  AT THE COST OF WAR  THE CHINESE DOOR WILL BE  KEPT OPEN TO THE TRADE  OF THE EMPIRE.

'  The secretary was instructed to  notify new members of their election  and that all fees are due within the  first month alter election. As a great  many members are believed to have  been elected without notification,  gentlemen who have been put up for  election, but not notified would confer  fer a favor by communicating with the  secretary. It was also decided to print  tlie financial report. A hearty vote  of thanks was passed to Alt*. II. A.  Brown, the retiring vice-president,  and another to the outgoing council.

THE GREAT JORNE LEDGE  Some Facts About Another   Promising  Lardeau Property.- ,  This ledge is situated at the headquarters of the north fork of the Lardeau river, and there are upwards of  twenty claims staked on it.-' Of the  following good claims you hear or  read.vory little, viz., The Boss.. Jenny  Lind. Ski, Rob Roy, Highland Chief"  Centre Star. Yankee Girl, Iron Horse.  Canadian Girl. Celtic, aud others.  The trend of this vein is noith west  and south east, aiid dips about 55  degress to the west. 'The vein shows  a big iron capping carrying galena,  and wherever any work has been done  and the capping removed, large bodies  of ore are exposed. Assays made of  ore from different claims give from  00 to 250 ounces-silver, upwards of 60  percent, lead, and S4 gold. The vein  varies from two to five feet in width.  It appears on the slope of the Little  Duncan and a group of three claims  staked on it are known as the Holy  Aloses Group. Thence across Gainer  creek, the head of the south fork of  the Lardeau river, then over the summit and across the headwaters of  Haley creek, and down the west side  of Lake creek, in all a distance of  about twenty miles.  What is n.ieeled to bring the above  mentioned claims into the front rank  as producers is tin: investment of a  niiall amount of capital in the construction of -'works," to treat the ore,  at the mouth of either Gainer creek,  Surprise creek, Pass creek, or the  main north fork of lhe Lardeau river.

WEDNESDAY,  JAN.    10.      1S0S.  .1   VOICE FROM THE   WEST  A farming exchange thus expresses itself on the policy of the  Liberal government towards , the  western agricultural community.:  The Liberal    Government    has  only itself to blame if it allows  itself to lose valuable ground iu  the west. The farmers of Manitoba  and  the Territories haye not by  any   means   forgotten   the  ante-  election promises of both political  parties-with regard to the duties  on certain necessaries of farming  life.    The   Conservative-* ou   the  one hand   pledged   themselves if  returned to power to ameliorate  the    condition   of    the   western  farmer by the abolition of duties  ou those articles which he found  necessary  in   his   everyday   life.  This   promise   coming    from   the  party of protection ~va~i in some  quarters   regarded  merels'  as an  election dodge for tho purpose of  capturing votes, but it certainly  had the appearance of good faith.  The Liberal party on  the  other  hand had anuonnced themselves as  the   advocates   of   absolute  free  trade, and although many even of  their supporters felt that such a  scheme was not practicable at the  present    time,    yet     that     tlie  Liberals were really the party to  whom the farmer might look with  confidence     for     some     redress.  Accordingly   the    Liberal.-   were  chosen as the friends of tlie farmer  and soreceived the farmers votes.  There is not a settler in Alberta  who    does     not    remember  .the  weight   which  was   attached   on*  ���������ever-y���������platforin-i-to���������the-necessity^  for the reduction of the duty on  agricultural machinery aud binder  twine   and   the  solemu   promises  which were made in that regard  by   both   parties.     The    Conservatives   have   had   no   chance of  keening or breaking the promises  made by them, but an opportunity  was   given    to    the    Liberals   of  carrying out their tariif proposals,  and although  the- general   result  was most disappointing, yet something was attempted in the promised direction.     During tbe last  session of parliament,  legislation  was     enacted   '   which      meant  the   abolition    of    the    duty   on  binder    twine    within     a     fevv  months, and the action of parliament was highly commended by  .the western farmers, who thought  they recognized the thin end of the  wedge.   Prominent Liberal", however,   such  as   Senator   Cox  and  Thomas Ballantyne are now at the  head  of  a   large and   influential  Liberal    deputation    at    Ottawa  urging tbe government   to   Lave  the duty no binder twine retained  in the interests of manufacturers.  It is sincerely to be hoped that the  demand  will   not be accrd"d   to.  but that the government will have  Huflicient    consideration    for   the  forming population in the we*������t, as  well as a proper sense of its own  dignity   to   maintain    the   stand  which it ha" already taken.    Xo  matter   vrhat   government   is   in  power at Ottawa, it should be its  duty   to  make   the    I:������~   of    the  THAT   A'lLANTlC   SERVICE  A fast steamer service between  Canada and the Old Country used  to be one of the planks in the Conservative platform.   It like many,  other    Conservative    ideas   was  taken up and uuttle their own by  the Liberals on their accession to  power.     Soon  after  the   gonernl  election, it was a common tiling to  read in Libvrul newspapers ot tho  groat  progress   wliich    the   new  government was making with the  last service   project.   The Tories  were   taiiutei.   with   having  contented  'themselves'  with   talking  about   it   while    tho    Grits    had  within a low days actually done  what was required.    Mr. Dobell,  when in Kngland would report by  cable of the great progress he was  making,   It was announced in the  party papers that.the Liberals had  achieved success by payment of n  much smaller subsidy than  that  which the Conservatives were prepared   to  pay.     1'iuiilly,   it  was  officially   stated    that    Peterson,  Tait    tvL-    Co.,   the    well   known  steamship owners had secured the  contract, aud as a guarantee  of  good faith were prepared within  60 days after notification by the  government to deposit .C10.000 by  way ot deposit.   After a considerable    period   hud    elapsed   some  interfering person discovered that  Messrs. Peterson, Tait <t- Company  had failed to make the necessary  deposit, aud out of this discovery  was made the further one that the  Petersons were only brokers who  had peddled the government contract round the steamship oi'lices,  but had been unable to place it at  the terms offered.   Then the Conservative journals had quite a lot  of   fun   ac    the    expense   ot the  government, who defended themselves by au announcement a short  time  ago    that   the    deposit   of  ������10,000 had been paid.  Since then nothiug more has  been heard of the matter. Uefore  they were turned out of power  the Conservatives had actually  made a contract with a reputable  firm for the establishment of a  fast Atlantic steamship service.  That contract, which was denounced by the Liberals- as an  outrage, was probably torn up, and  the Peterson arrangement was  substituted. A good year aud a  half has passed away, and the last  Atlantic service is further wvav  than over. Probably the Liberals  are better acquainted with the  necessities of the situation and  with the possible merits of the  Conservative scheme today than  they were a year and a half ago,  when they presumed to criticize it  so harshly.  It would uot beat all unlikely  if they were to find themselves  compelled to adopt the Conservative scheme in its details as  they have already adopted its  principle.  A   WORD OF ADVICE  Tlie Alontreal Stat* contains au  advertisement from the Yukon  Snow & Ice Company auuouncing  nn excursion from Alontreal to  Dawson-. City ,-'��������� including heated  cars all tlio way with meals and  births for tlio paltry sum of  #2(11.70. The excursion is announced to leave Alontreal on  .latmary '15tli mid tho estimated  time between that city and  Dawson is given, lis 2i> days.   The  BITS OF NEWS.  AS OTHERS SE1C IT  In opening up tlie Yukon the  government is lo~ing sight of the  Territories, and ignoring the  necessity for maintaining a force  here. J c is very easy to say a post  is useless and mav with safety be  closed to set men free for service  in the north. Useless it may he in  the eyes of the men in Ottawa:  but to those who know tlie  country it may be a most important preventive station. The  presence "of a very small body of  mounted police has many times  driven horse and cattle thieves out  of a district", and kept the Indians  iu'th"eir-phices"vvhei]-i nclt tied-to-be-  ugly. Battleford is in the centre  of au Indian couutry, and the proposal to reduce the strencth of the  force to a mere detachment is one  that should not be entertained.  That was done once before, and  with what disastrous re*-ult=  history tells. The substitution ot  the militia for the police system in  Assiuiboia aud Alberta, as is  suggested, will prove a failure if  attempted. The country i.- too  sparsely settled, for one thing:  and the machiuerv of its organi/.'i-  tion . does not lit. it for thu j  discharge of the varied and i  onerous duties with which the '  mounted police have in tho. past -*o  successfully coped as to win the j  aoproval and high estimation of [  all competent judges who have ;  =een their work.���������Saskatchewan  Herald.  whole thing scoins so charmingly  easy of accomplishment, and the  incidents of'the journey are so  geographically set forth that a  good many foolish peoplo who are  suffering from an'acute attack of  golil fever may not pause to look  at what is before them.  The  following extract from tho  Daily Colouist of Victoria, B.C.,  concerning the rush by the coast  routes is  not without interest iu  tliis connection:    "Tho rush," says  tho Colonist, ''has begun and every  steamer     going      north      takes  hundreds    of    po'iplc     bent    on  reaching    the ��������� land    of   promise.  What ilo these people  expect to  accomplish?       Where     do     they  expect   to  spend    the   next  few  months?   Tliey cannot hope to get  themselves and their outiits over  the   passes  at  the head of Lynn  Canal.    Itis costing the mounted  police, when they move anything  at all, .'i'i,000a ton to  get supplies  carried a distance of '20 miles. How  can individual miners hope to do  any better?   In fact, we may ask:  How can    individual   miners   do  anything at all.   This rush to the  passes is madness.   There will be  a crush of people there; and while  none   of   them   need   stiller  from  hunger or cold, for they will take j  enough to eat, aud they need not  go far from the sea level, they will  waste their substance in fruitless  effort.     It  is   utterly out of the  question   for   people   to   think of  getting  into   the    Yukon   valley  now by way of the Lynn Canal.  Wc make this statement because  we are satisfied that it is absolutely  true, and because   we thiuk it ti  pity that men should be guilty of  thu insane folly of crowding to a  place    like   Lynn   Canal    at  this  season of tho year.    We repeat, so  as  not to be misunderstood, that  the Colonist is not opposed to the  encouragement of travel by these  routes.     It believes  that if then-  were n dozen more routes into the  Yukon     thoy    would     not    be  sufficient -for the   host that   will  seek  to u*-u them.    By and by it  will  be  possible   to make  use of  these routes: but they cannot be  utilized    now.       Knowing    these  things, it would be little short of  criminal     if   we    permitted    the  northern rush to continue without  giving warning against the delays  and danger.": to be encountered."  The moral i" obvious. The const  paper-' which are certainly not  prejudiced against the coast  routes, are honest enoiurh to tell  the truth about the situation.  The Calgary-lidmonton route has  the advantage of greater safety,  more economy and less unpleasantness than any other route.

OFFICIALS FOR YUKON  FROM THE YUKON  Two   Interesting   Letters   Received   by  the Authorities at Ottawa.  Two   imnortaut   ollicial   communications  received  from  the Yukon  at  Ottawa on Saturday   last, are from the  superintendent of the Mounted Police  and  the sheriif   at Dawson  city,   and  the other a   toleernphic  report   from  Superintendent Perry, who hits arrived ac  Victoiia bringing Dawson news  to  December Till.   'Perry went   unto  Skagway   a fevv  weeks   ago   with   'I'I  police aiid several tons ot supplies. He  ���������.ays   "0 persons" from Dawson   came  down with   him   from  Skagway.   All  agreed that, there  was   no danger   of  starvation,   but there   will be a  short-  ago   of food in   April oi   May,   and it,  vvill bo   uiLcrlv impossible tu   t'orvvaid  supplies  before tbe  river opens,   and  the only  course, therefore,   he says, is  to notify Dawson that supplies vvill be  found at. Big Salmon, which would encourage many to come out from  Dawson.    Perry says there aie  five tons of  piovisions in charge of  the  Canadian  ulllcials at Skagway. -IJ at the summit-  eif While Pass." three   and   a   half   at  Middle Lake and live   ions at Tagish,  vvheie   J.   D.   McGregor    arrived   on  December     "2!"tb.      Inspector     "Wood  requires 10 horses and ~iU more dugs to  forward these into the interior.   These  will be sent as soon as possible.   Pei ry  was instructed by   wire   to   send   five  tons  more   supplies  by  "JO   additional  police who leave Victoria   on  the 15th  of January.    Supt.  Constantine says:  -~--Tlverraiions-we-bave"-uli-hand-and-'iill-  we have been able to proeme  will at a  reduced rate  last   only   to   June   1st.  There is no likelihood  of any   further  supplies reaching here until "the  middle of July fiom St. Michael's.    I'nder  ordinary conditions they would arrive  from the Stb to the 15th   of June, billowing to the  number of  pejple   who  left for dovvn liver by the steamboats,  the slock  of supplies   usually   drawn  upon for the early pail  of the season  will   be   consumed.    It    is   estimated  I hat there are between three and four  thousand   persons   at  various   points  along lhe river who have lo be provided  for.    As   yoji .have   been   advised  only two   tieials  iiii' the  last trip   up  were   held   up    by     armed    men   in  the     Cnited     States     territory   and  supplies   intended   for    this   country  were taken  olf the boats by force.    It  it*  incumbent  tbat   supplies   be sent  in   here, not only  for  the  use of the  police,   but  also  lo  relieve   buttering  among the miners in  the early spring,  Tbe hard  pinch   will begin about tbe  1st uf April  and  continue  until   tlie  opening of the river from the 15th to  llie 20th of  May.    The  easiest way to  get in fcupplies will   be  to sleigh them  to   the   loot  of   Lake   Litharge,   and  there build    large scows   which   will  hnlfl,from eight  to ten   tons each and  follow the ice down the river, allowing  tfc   to    run   at   least  21    boms   cleai  between   the    time   of   breaking   up  and     the     boats      leaving.        Great  caution will  be  even  then necessary  in   order   to    avoid    accidents.     The  rations  we have  on   hand at present,  ,-it a reduced rate, will last  till the  1st  ni June only at   lhis   post.     At   Fort  Con*-tantine Hour and bacon have been  ieduced to three-quarters of a pound  and   lour   ounces     respectively.      In  ruder to bring  the   ration   up to  one  li.vuiid   per   day   we   have  purchased  fiJIl"! pounds of beef at   $1  per pound.

P.. put in Monday forenoon in this oflice and succeeded in producing a very credit:.hie  reproduction of the .letter, which was  published over his signature tin our  last issue. He does not get full marks  for the examination however . as he  made one mistake in spelling. But  ���������'mercantile" is rattier a hard word  anyhow.  The Goldfields of British Columbia  'have invited Mr. Otto Abeling to consult with them regarding the Waverley group. We believe that the Gold-  fields Company has ;,-ilready made  arrangements for the erection of a  "powerful concentrating plant for the  treatment of the Waverley and T.-*.ngic"t*  ores.���������B. C. Review.  There has been such a demand for  ���������all the available povvei for hauling  :freight that the policy of the Donald  -"shops at present is mainly to do only  -sufficient repairs to keep the engines  ���������running as much as possible, as they  -cannot be spared for thorough overhauling. As a result there is only one  -engine in the shops at present,although  the staff are very busy on general  repairs.���������Golden Era.  The engine drivers arc "still sticking:  out against the changing of the divisional point from Donald .to Field, and  the chairman of the brotherhood at  Winnipeg has advised the Donald men  to hold themselves in readiness to send  a delegation from Donald to AVinnipeg  to discuss the matter with Messrs.  Whyte' and Cross, Master Mechanic.  It is believed at Donald that this difficulty may prevent the shifting of the  divisional point for the present.���������Golden Era.

"  ~���������= ���������On-.he_IvIo'nawk-Group���������'   The Moscow claim on tbe well-known  Mohawk group on Pool'creek has recently-been sold to some pm-tjes in  Itevelstoke. Tbe property vvas owned  by Geo. Bole. This claim has one of  die best shewings in this district.  It has been stripped and cuts run  through it sufficiently to prove the  existence of a big body of ore* Different assays made from the ore all run  well in gold and silver. One of the  best runs 00 oz. in silver and $27 in  gold. The ore strongly resemble that  of the Silver Cup and Sunshine mines  in the Lardeau. The new proprietors  vvill .stiirt operations in the spring,  nnd expect (piirk returns from the  position of the claim, wliich i.s only  thr'e mill's from the wagon roiid tu  Thompson's Landing and is connected  with the road by a good trail, which  could easily be converted into a wagon  road itself. This property has been  bought by local parties, well  acquainted with the claim and district,  which speaks volumes for the confidence inspired by this country by  those, who know it properly."  Will Not go by Kamloops.  In the issue of the Inland Sentinel  published on Jan. 11th appeared an  account of an alleged interview with  Mr. J. H. McFarlane, headed "The  Miner's Paradise," to be found between Kamloops and Klondyke. Mr.  McFarlane denies ever having given  any interview to a representative of  the Sentinel, and takes considerable  exception tn this free use made of bis  name without his authority, as well as  to some of the statements made iu tbe  article, particularly as the intention  of its publication obviously is to boom  the "Kamloops route" to Klondike.  Mr. McFarlane is emphatically of the  opinion that no one but a natural born  fool would ever attempt to start for  Klondike by either the Ashrroft or  Kamloops loutcs, though he considers  the Ashcroft one to be all right, if the  idea is to prospect   in   Omincca   and  ANN<HAI2 REPORT  ...0F THE...  REVEI2ST0KE B0ARB OF TRADE  Kicvi-i-STOKi", P.. C, Jan. 15th, lSl'S.  To the Revelstoke Board of Trade:  GliNTI.EMl"",  III presenting our Annual Ui'p.-.rf for 1S07, if i.s  hardly necessary to refer-to the fact. Unit this year has been  marked by thu greatest improvement in Hcvolstoki: and by ilm  greater volutin* ot business of any previous your.  The following were the Standing Ctiiumitti'c.s for the year: ���������  Puni.ic Womes���������Messrs. II. A. Hroivu,  Wm. Brown, John  Abrahamson, Dr. iMcKei'linic.  iMlNl.vo AND MAN"~~'~ACT"j-lil~~i ��������� Wells, Laiug. 11. A. Brown.  THAN.-sroitTATIo.s*  AND   l'lii'iouT���������Sibbald,  Ci)iir>ii*r,  Chapman.  Early in the year lhe advisability of issuing stock amongst,  the memhiTS for the purpose of erei'ling a Board Building vvas  discussed, but on investigating thu subji-ct it was decided that  the undertaking was too large a one fur lhe Ilo.ird lo handle at  present.  On January 2S, 1307, the Board forwarded a strongly worded  resolution to the Dominion Govi'iiiiiii'iit urging ihem lu at.onci: '  expend the $2,000 voted for the improvement, of the Canyon to  the mirth of Kevelstoke, as the money could be expended to the  very best advantage whilst, the river wis frozen over. The  representations of the Board resulted in the work being at unco  proceeded with.  The attention of the Provincial (jeivorninent was directed to  the urgency of protective measures on the river haul:, and the  Board pointed out, the fact thai, if the work should be delayed  until the rising of the river a great loss of public money would  ensue, by allowing the best time of the year for doing the work  to pass by, besides jeopardizing its pcrmaiianco. In this, however, the Board were not successful, for beyond a fevv icpaii's to  the existing work nothing vvas done.  The Board also investigated the question of the advisability  of incorporating the town.  The Board forwarded to Mr. Kc "lit1 a resolution strenuously  opposing Ihe granting of subsidies to railway companies or other  corporations, pointing out that in their opinion money subsidies  and guaranteeing of interest should be protected by the acquisition by the Province of an equitable interest in the enterprises.  The freight rate qucston was lonstantly ventilated at. the  meetings of the Council.  A great deal of the Council's attention has been given to  urging the perfecting of flu: titles lo the land at Kevelstoke.  The Council's constant, solicitations have ut length had the  desired effect, and a clear title can now be secured in most parts  of the townsite.  Ou I'Vlu'iiury 18th the Board asked Mr. Kellie lo see that the  appropriations to be made in the coming estimates lor West.  Kootenay in lhe matter of roads, streets and bridges conl.lined a  sutt'u-ient sum of money to open up new streets in tliis town.  The. Council herewith tender their thanks to Mr. Graham, tlu*,, .���������  late Government Agent, for the liberal way he has treated us in';,  this respect.  Another matter brought to the attention of the Council wus  the loss of life in mines owing to the careless handling of powder,  and our member in the local House'was requested to support,  any measure heating on protection of the .miners' lives. The  Board are glad to note that the Legislatiire'hns passed an Act  with this object in'viott*.  The need of a new Court House and gjiol.was constantly and  strongly advocated by the Council, with what result the Board  are now aware.  The C. P. It. at the request of the Council instituted a  delivery of telegrams by messenger, which has proved a great  convenience to tlie business community.  Assistance has been asked from the Provincial tiovernment  in the shape of a further lire grant of $250, as it has become  necessary to organize two brigades owing to the increase in tbe  area of the town and the number of buildings, flui Council has  lite assurance that thoir application will he favorably considered  by the Li:������-isbituri*.  The advisability  of  Inciting  the  garbage  dumping ground .  below the town and out of the truck of the ]in*vailiiig northwesterly winds vvas pressed on the Provincial  Board of Health,  who do not, endorse the views of the Council.   Tin* Council are  still in communication wilh the Health Board on this Mibjecl.  The Dominion Government has favorably considered the  request of the Council that a tract of land be set aside for.a  recreation ground, and vvi.ih trustee.-, appointed by ".lit; citizens  and a piece, of land selected. The Council would suggest that a  public meeting under the auspices of the Boaid be called for tirs  purpose at an early date.'  The protection of the river bunk has been during the year,  and is still, the principal business before' the <'intm-il. They  interviewed Mr. Turner, who admilled lhat according to tlie  British North 'America Act llie Provincial Government were,  i-i'spunsible for the work, lie promised thai tbe Government  vvouid do their share, if lhe work vv-e-ie not. loo expensive. A  survey has been made by the Provincial Ciiivyriiiii.-iil. which we  have ..very reason lo hope shows that the undertaking i*. not Lou  ceisllv.  The Council have constantly urged the establishment of a  better mail service throughout'the Dislrid. This has been  considerably improved, bo*, is .-.till anything but satisfactory.
