NOTE AND COMMENT  It is abundantly plain that the pressing questions of tlu*. protection of the  river bunk and thu wigon road to the  canyon will not be allowed to become  shelved owing to any luck of inleies'.  on the part of any section of lhis community. Tins executive commit tec of  the boaid of trade have given their  committee, on public works special instructions to_ consider themselves a  committee with full power to act on  any emergency arising in connection  with the river bank. The jury at the  court on Thursday m.-idc au excellent  presentment of our requirements in  these and one or two other respects to  the judge, whiih the Hiskau" pub-  lishcs in another column. The petitions to the ditlerent governments  were unanimously signed and have already set  the. lu.-ic-hinery   in   motion.  set  tl  On all sides there is a determination  to cary these projects through, and to  put up with no more dilly-dallying in  the matter. Tlu: only discordant note  is being struck, as usual, by the AIiJ_.il,  to whicli the. most necessary proposal  becomes distasteful, as long as the  llliKALO is for it, hut of which,  equally as usual, no person appears' to  be taking the sinallcstviiotice. This is  a very satisfactory state of affairs and  reveals.a willingness on the part of  our people to pull together for the  common good; which is very encouraging to those who now see the other  project, that of incorpoiation, for  which they have worked so ha id Hearing realization. The Herald believes  lhat so far from incorporation being  peculiarly diflie ult to carry 'out in,  Itevelstoke, thitl it will bu found pec u-  liarly successful.  get the municipal account. Il vvill he  necessary lo appoint it solicitor to see.  that thu bylaws are in proper shape,  but, $230 per annum ought to pay him  for his service-:. There will also have  lo be an auditor, who should make a  thorough monthly audit and rcpoit to  the finance committee for.~10a month.  Each fire brigade should also have, a  captain responsible to the fire, water  and light commit tee at. a small nominal salary. Beyond this point the  salarj* list need not travel at first.  Our motto should be every dollar we  can scrape together for improvement's,  but not. a cent mure than we can help  for expenses.  COUNTY COURT  Kevelstoke is not going into th:s  mutter of incorporation _witli a wild  rush, with any idea that tliere is any  kind of magic about, it to ensure prosperity or with any notiun.i.if .fostering,  a boom or starting any'fictitious'excitement. V.'e are doing it", simply  because in the judgment of the majority, the time has airiv-eil that we cannot atlord to do without it. Ohruni-  stances have forced iiu-orpnrati.-n  upon us. Thu teiwn has grown must,  remarkably since la-l spring and to a  certain extent wi: can see that its further growth is a matter of certainly.  It is also plain iu what directions incorporation will help the future proeress  of the place, by enabling its citizens lo  take concerted action to help out ihe  development of Uie district commercially tributary to it, a district  -fi-oni-its-indiratinns-of-niinei al���������wealth  sU'ond to none 'in the province.  Therefore we are going into this thing  soberly and advisedly, and when incorporated there is 'every indication  that our municipal business will be  carrieel on in the same spirit, and that  our revenues vvill be expended judiciously and honestly.  The publication of lhe papal encyclical has revived a passing interest in  the Manitoba school question. But it  would he a gi eat mistake to suppose*  that it has altered the situation with  regard to it at all. In IS',)", the Conservative party made; an clfo'rt to settle it on the principle that it t onstitti-'  tional wrong having been done.-.the  constitutional remedy for il should be  adopted. But this idea did not suit  the Unman Catholics themselves, or at  least the great ..majority- of theni.  They were bound to have L,iiuiei- to  settle this matter for theni and he. has  done so, and although the settlement  he. has made falls very far short of the  expect at ions of Quebec, when they returned him'to power, there does not  seem to beany sign that, they an* dissatisfied with' it. At all events the  bye.-elections do not seein to indicate  anything of the kind." The. question  of natioiiiilily has overridden that of  religion. As long as Sir Wilfred is at  this head of the government Quebec  may be counted on'as solid. As for  the papal encyclical Unit vvill permit  of more interpretation than one, ac  cording to the predilections oT the  ditfjrenl people to whom it is addressed. Under it a l'liiuaii Catholic bishop  or priest may still-.demand remedial  legislation in l ones .of thunder, and a  llom.-in Chiitholic l.iymaii may, if he  chooses, ncqii:i*nci* in the j oi'iccssions,  which Sir Wilfred ���������obtained from  Manitoba. 'The encyclical lakes , .1  broad ami statesmanlike view ,of the  situation. The school question was  outside of practical politics before.  The encyclical bus closed the door upon it forever.

Ilevelslcke Station.  There will not for instance be a. long  list of fat- salaries. There will certainly not be. if the llnii.vf.n can help  it, any kind ot local Czar walking  round this town in the shape of a  salaried mayor. The mayor of Itevelstoke will be only chairman of Ihe  council; he will reign but he will not  govern, aud he will do it for nothing al  tlmt. The best"business men can lie  got to (ill the ollice on these terms in  othi'i* places, and there !s no reason  why they should nutodo so in Kevelstoke. Neither in our opinion is  there the smallest necessity fur a  salaried police magistrate to be paid  by the municipality, when we have a  stipendiary magistrate of the province  residing here. Offences against municipal by-laws can be disposed of by  the mayor, who should be made, by  our special act an ex officio J. P. This  place will require a clerk, who should  be required to be attending tn municipal affairs for a certain fixed portion  of each day at the city oflice, and who  would be amply paid for his services  at ������50 per month. The same nflkial  could In* col lector and paid by a small  percentage on actual collections. The  town is scattered and would need two  policemen, who could scarcely be got  for less than ������75 per month apiece.  The first assessment should be as well  made as the council possibly can get  it done, and it vvill pay iu the long run  to give a good practical nun a good  sum for making it. If it is properly  done at first, I here will not be much  difliculty about making the .subsequent ones. The best person to make  treasurer will be a manager of one of  llie chartered banks. These gentlemen will do the work for a nominal  st'in, as it means that their hank  will  Friday night last by 15-yeai-old Samuel Henderson, has been found in the  bottom of I led dies' Creek, and theie  seems liltle doubt in the minds of the  police that young HcTiderson is guilty  of the crime. lie is now locked in a  cell at police headquarters. The body  of the child when found was weighted  by two heavy stones, one about his  neck andthe other around hjs tinkles.  His skull was crushed in. and there  was a knife thrust just above the heart  and similar wounds on his breast,  side, and forehead, while on one side  of his face, vvas a long cut, extending  from below the eye to the chin.  After Henderson's arrest lies admitted u knowledge of the kiiiru thrust,  but said it was due to the child accidentally running against an mien  knife. Henderson became alarmed at  this, lie said he threw the body into  the creek.  When shown (he mutilated body of  the child, headuiitied he was responsible for the other cuts also, but lie  persisted that it, was an accident. The  police, however, believe il, was a  planned murder, in which the guilty  one also purposed ending the life of  another small boy, Willie Addison, 7  years old.  Henderson, it is claimed, has been  reading trnshy novels of the wild  western stamp, and has shown a desire to emulate the heroes of these  tales. The police assert that Henderson accompanied Lockyarand Addison  to the woods, as he told yesterday, but  instead of any accident happening to  either, Henderson tied both children  to a tree. Addison broke away and  ran home. It. was then, it is said,  that young Liickyar's death was accomplished.  A Good Bill.

D. "80S:  'Wo would respectfully call "Vour  Honor's attention to the urgency of  protective -"-measures bt'iiig~~"takeh"  against the further encroachments of  the Columbia river on the townsite at  this place. ' Unless the' protection  work is proceeded with before the,  water rises at the. end of April, n large  portion of the centre of the townsite  will in all probability lie wiped out.  and the approaches to lhe school  house -md the churches cut olf, as well  as ji opardi/.ing the safely of the building-;. It is earnestly hoped that  prompt action vvill ' be taken in this  mutter of vital important e.  Another mat ter to which Your  Honor's attention is called i.- the location of the dumping . giound for garbage and night soil. Your petitioners  are given to imdcrsland that the site  of this nuisance ground, as originally  selected by the government agent and  Dr. l'unran. lhe secretary of the provincial hoard of health, was sit lulled  below and to the south of the town.  Their selection, however, was overruled by Mr. C. Philips-Wnolcy. Unsanitary inspector, who expropriated  laud foi' this purpose! to the norlh of  and near the town, directly in the  track of the prevailing uorthvvc.sti-rly  winds, and in the opinion of youi  petitioners would prove a serious menace to the public health. The 1 md  selected by Dr. Duncan can be conveniently reached by a road remote  from thii settled portion of the town.  Mr. Wnoley's site, ou the other hand,  can onlv be reached hy a road running  right through the centre, of the town.  We would submit lhat either permission be given to ell her discharge the  gar huge inlo the Columbia river, or  that the site select ed by Dr. Duncan  be chosen instead of the present location. At the piesent time there is no  scavenger to remove the niuht soil  from the dry earth boxes, .-illhough  instructions have been given to resiel-  ents to fill up lhe privy pits. We  would suggest thai an ol~ic-i.il scavenger be appointed, aud advocate that  some provision be made for t.-iuying  out the instructions of the hoard of  health. ''  We would further urge., your influence in the matter of supporting our  iippeal to the provincial government  for an additional grant of S~1."0 for fire  protection purposes, as owing to the  large area of ground which the town  covers it has become necessary to establish a fire station ut both east and  west end for the protection ot life and  property in cases of fire. We would  that   this   increased   service'  support from the government which  we ask as an assistance to ensure proper service in this direction.  A matter of very great importance  tn this town aud dislrict to whicli vvp  would resnectfully draw your attention is the necessity of improving  means of trans.portalii.iii to the Big  Bend district !>y~conslructing waggon  roads to a point beyond the canyon,  and improving Ihe navigation from  that point noi thwnrds on the Columbia river. The amount of work already done in this district fully  warrants the expenditure needed in  this direction.  Thompson K. L. Taylor,  Foreman of jurv.  Kevelstoke, July 20, 1S0S.  CHDIINAL  DOCKET.

"When  I was   mining   on   Sultan  Kiver in the State  of   Washington   in  1S70, said Mac, lighting his 4:>rd match  hy actual count,  during the evening,  "aseries  of events  happened to ,me,  which would have driven  any   person  inclined   to  superstition   out   of   the  country.   I was  working alone, on a  bar of the river,- out  of  which   I   was"  making my eleven dollars a day right  along, which was pretty good for lhat  section. -, l.was the last inuii   up   the  river'and at least thirty miles from the  nearest camp..and  I did not- see   the  face of another human being except a  tew   Indians    for    nine    consecutive  months.     In   spite   of  this isolation  small articles were continually  disappearing from lhe cabin.   I  kept missing spoons and knives.    One evening,  after a read aud a smoke in  lied,  after  the goeid old custom of.s'mgle  men all  over the world. I laid my pipe  on   the  edge of the tableonear  my   bunk.    Iu  tin. ,  niui-nin:; rir. *u"ii-   K'nie. - and,.no  amount of hunting for it disclosed  its  whereabouts..   Tobacco   used  also  to  vanish   in   tlie   sume    unaccountable  manner.      These   things    were    very,  puzzling- and   even    uncanny.     One  uight as I  vvas   lying   in   bed,   there  were three  violent   shocks   of   earthquake.     Tho   house   shook    and the  tlishes were shot olf the shelves  on  to  the floor.     1   had  three cats   in   the  shack iin:l everyone of them  vanished  up the chimney.    I rushed to the dpor  and looked iml.    It was a still,  moonlight night.   There were two immense  trees   opposite   the   door,   iind   as   1  glanced out they moved forward and  hack__.and__; came, -to-rest   again... The  shocks were over and I  went  back  to  bed.   By and hy two of the cats  came  dovvn the chimney  and  lay  down  on  the hearth.    And just  then   in  a   loft  overhead I-heard tap, tap, lap on  the  floor,   and   a   large   wood   rat   came  thiough   an   opening   in  the   ceiling,  and descended by the wall to the" top  of a cupboard and thence to the  floor.  He then actually had  the  impudence  to walk across to the hearth  and   seat  himself between  the   two   cuts,   who  never took   the  least   notice   of   him.  He sal I here for ii while looking first  at one cat unci then another and then  climbed   back   on'  to   the   cupboard.  Just ill   this juncture   the   third   und  biggest cat came down   the  chimney  and   ciught  sight  of   Mi.   Woodr.it.  Tom pi ep.ired for action  at, onee and  his tail waved like a tiger's.     The  rat  turned to climb up the wall again  nnd  the cut made una spring  nt  him   and  took him in the back  of the  neck.    I  could hear the bones of his neck crack.  Tom dropped back on to the floor with  his prey and cume over  to  me  to see  what 1 thought of his stroke  of  business.    Next, morning   I   went  up  into  the loft to see  what had   been   going  on.    There I found my pipe, a  quanti-  ty'of tobacco,   numerous  spoons" iind  knivc-s and other arlicles, which I   had  missed.     But  most   ridiculous  of all,  there were a wuir of new gum-boots up  in the loft, whicli  I   had  placed   there  out of the way.    These had been  Idled  plum full of raisins,  of   which   I   had  laid   in  a   stock, which   I   had   never  touched.    The idea of a vvood  rat  had  never struck me, iis  I   did   not   know  that there were any  in   that   part   of  the country, and a more superstitious  person   in   that   lonely   place    would  certainly   have   thought   that    there  spooks   around.      However.  I   stayed  with the bar and made nn  average  of  $11 n day for two years, and when the  bar digging;- played   out, I   took   np  the  bench  lands   behind   ami   leased  them to two Seattle companies and  ilievv ~2<_5" a month out of them   for  ill  LOOKS LIKE A MURDER  Jas.

SATURDAY.  JANUARY  2"*, 1SUS.  .-1 SIGNIFICANT UTTERANCE  ���������The Montreal  Star of January  ���������ith contains a six   colnmn  inter  view with a "western Ontario Liberal member - of Parliament","  which' makes extremely interest-  reading. The honorable member  speak3 evidently with considerable knowledge., and speaks authoritatively for the Liberals of  "Western Ontario. Its chief bigni-  licance is a warning to Sir A\ il-  i'rid Laurier, and a defiance to a  certain section of the Liberal  part, principally to be found  "among the Quebec Liberals, the  New Brunswick Liberals and the  nondescripts." The speaker professes more loyalty than ever to  the Premier, but he declares that  Cartwright and Mills "have behind them the weight of all the  sound, healthy public opinion that  exists iu a community like this,  whose moral sense is deficient.'  He declares that should the corrupt-element; overpower Ji-iurlei-  ic would still have to deal with  Cartwright. aud that iu that case  "Sir Richard would nob hesitate  to leave the Cabinet and appeal to  the honest men of both parties���������  in other words, to smash the Government and send all hands back  to their constituents rather than  tolerate for an instant any dirty  job of theirs." Mr. Blair is informed that he must not attempt  to purchase the'Canada Eastern or  to subsidize the South Shore from  Sorel to Quebec, aud Mr. Tarte is  given a hint that the result of the  investigation of the Drummond  county deal may have an import-  -ant- bearing-^u pou._his; political.  future.  The stand taken by the Ontario  Liberals is in the best interests  of the party and of the cjuntry.  It^is high time i'or some such declaration to be mfide. The groups  of "tainted Liberals" and "tainted  ex-Tories who have joined the Liberal party for its sins," should not  be allowed to control the Liberal  party, and with it the country.  Should Sir Richard be driven to  appeal to the honest men of both  parties under such circumstances,  we are convinced that he will not  appeal in\.~iii. The Liberal victory of June, 1S9G. was due largely  to the disgust of honest Canser-  vatives with the corrupt element  in their own party, and however  much honest Conservatives may-  disagree with Sir Richard's taritT  policy, they respect his personal  character.  BIN DER T1 VINE PRO TEC TION  At last session of parliament a  cut was made in the tariff upon  binder twine lrom 12). to 10 per  cent, to be followed on January  1st, 1808, by the complete wiping  out of the duty. Last week a  deputation ot twine manufacturers, headed by Senator Cox,  of Toronto, a prominent Liberal,  waited upon the government,  urging that the duty be restored,  and complaining that if it was not  restored the twine factories would  havo to shut down. Tlie farmers  of the west will feelilike citing  Mr. Rortiam's arguments for  tariff stability. In a certain  measure Mr. Bertram was right in  contending that commercial confidence and security depended  upon tat iff stability. It must be  patent to all that nothing would  so surely destroy all confidence in  the tariff aud in the government  which for the}"tin~e being controls  the tariff, as for "the government  to wipe out the tariff in one year  and restore it the next. We hope  if the unexpected happens, and if  the government should weakly  propose to restore the twine duty,  to see Mr. Bertram raise his voice  in parliament in favor of tariff  stability.  If the Laurier government is  pledged to anything it is pledged  to reduce the duties. If it is  pledged to any particular item of  tariff reform, that item is in  respect of binder twine. Time  after time Mr. Mulock, now a  member of the government, moved  to abolish the twine duty. (Time  after time Mr. Daviu supported  the motion in speech aud opposed  it with that far more effective  thing, his vote.) For tho Laurier  government to restore tlie twine  duty would be i'or it to make a  distinctive breach of faith with  the western farmers.  To restore .a duty to save  factories from shutting down is to  reinaugurate protection for those  factories, ft is a Liberal principle  anel a good principle that'it a  factory can not be - kept open  without the support of protection,  then the country i.s no gainer by  keeping it open. If twine can be  made more cheaply in the United  States, then it is more profitable  for Canatla tn buy her twine in  the States. Of course when our  whole fiscal system is based upon  and interwoven with protection,  it is obvionslyiimpossible to wipe  away protection afc one stroke  without disaster. But the government lias assured the country  of its determination to keep its  face towards the goal of free  trade, anel for it to look back at  this early stage of its career  would be a bad omen of the  eventual fruit of its policy.���������  Regina Leader.
