Kevelstoke Station.  Next Tuesday, .1 mi. ISth, will   mark  the anniversary of the date of the first  publication   ni'  the   Hekai.d.    During  that   period   this   place   has  taken   a  reinark.-ihli*   stride    forward   and   thn  IIl-'ltAi.D  has  had   to  note a series of  rapid changes in a   progressive  direction.    Among   theni   is   to   he noted a  very large increase of population, arising   considoralily   from    the   gradual  concentration of llie 0. P. R. employes  on   this   division   at this point.    This  is >i movement, whicli  tliere  is  every  reason   to  believe ��������� will continue, initi*  Kevelstoke   becomes   one  of  the four  principal   railway   points  on  lhe western   division   of the C. P. Iv. between  Winnipeg  and  the  coast.   The resull  vvill not be achieved all   at once, but it  is  one  which   in   our opinion i.s being  aimed   at, and   a   constant   influx   of  population may be confidently expected   fi( m   it   until   it is accomplished.  Another noticeable feature of tlie first  year of our  publication   has been the  increasc and extension   of commercial  enterprises  in  every   direction.    New  firms  have come  in, new branches of  business have been   opened up and the  old   established   houses  have enlarged  their  promises  aiul  spread  out   their  ventures  in   many   ways, all with the  most   satisfactory   results.      A   third  point on   which   the   Hl"l!Al.l> has   to  congratulate this   town is the remarkable way in which local   private, enterprise has shewn its   faith in the stability   of  tlie   place by the inception and  exten.-ion   cf   operations   uf great, convenience   and   usefulness   to its   residents.   It is not loo much to say  that  the spread  nT the entirely new distii-t  opened upon the hill, has been furthered, and even rendered   possible  by the  waterworks system, while   the powerful electric plant just  installed by the  same company will in a few  days  furnish light lo the   towii and will doubtless   eventually   piovide ' the     power  whereby    the    initial    difficulties   of  transportation   to ,the"   Big  Bend district,   whose  development  vvill  prove  -shell  an   important  factor  in the progress of this  place, will   he  overcome.  Few   places   in   the  present   stage of  Kevelstoke can boast of the possession  of wal it   and   electric  light, .systems  carried out entirely by'local enterprise  and energy.  Another point, in the history of the  year, which seems of more than pas-s-  ing significance, is that ah hough there.  are no mines operated very close to  town, and although its prosperity and  progress i.s entirely independent of the  success or failure of this or that particular niiniiigconcern, vet it lias begun  tii-assume -in~a���������fai���������iiiore'inipoi'taii","-  sense the aspect of a mining centre.  Several offices of mining companies  working in North Ivoo'.-.enay have been  opened here during the past few  mouths and under the provisions of  the new Companies' Act "-others, will  doubtless be established here this year.  The Hkiutji ("insiders that taking  these, points ^ in consideration and  reviewing the situation generally the  people of Kevelstoke have every cause  for tho conlidi'iice in the future of this  town, wliich is so striking a feature of  the cniniiniuity's menial ttiakup. Our  pi ogress hits been gradual but solid.  Theie has been no wild boom in real  estate, and no fictitious excitement.  The place has grown to what it is by  the sheei'lforce of the same surrounding  circuiii.stances, which vvill oventiially  iitake it one ot the foremost coininei-  cial points in the province. Without  ha-te. without ies.t is our motfo.  "'  Tlie Hkkald has done its share to  forward this growth and will.continue  to do so. It has the great .pleasure of  seeing nioie than one change,.which  it has advocated, come to pass already.  It has also the happiness of knowing  that its efforts to bring the place before  the notice of the outside world have  not been ineffectual. In advancing the  interests of this place, it will in the  future, as it has done, in the past, dispense with theories, and endeavor to  turn anything that is to be had our  way. For instance the Hku.vld does  not approve of bonusing railways as a  principle of administration, but so  long as that system is in force, and  any railway likely to help us out in  maintaining or extending our commercial held is projected and wants a  bonus, the Heiivld vvill advocate that  it receives one. just in the same way  ;is it would advocate its construction  by the government, if the policy of  governtiieul ownership of railways,  which we do believe in,iscveradopted.  The Hekald believes in this p'ace becoming incorporated and assuming the  responsibility of its own schools. But  as long as things re-main in statu ipio  we shall endeavor to get the government lo expend every ceutou improve  ments hei e, which we possibly can.  .Such a course may seem lo the touchy  consciences oT political purists inconsistent. Practically it is far nioie  consistent ..than if, while expressing  the best wishes, for the prosperity of  this place, we curried our l henries so  far as to bulk enterprises unil projects,  which might, if completed, help that  prosperity along. The HKitALii is nut  published in liove'sloko. to afford a  living example of strict adherence to  political theniy. but to urge, on the.  pi ogress of lhe town and iis own along  with it. It is not here because of what,  Bevelsloke now is. but because of what  il may heroine, if general good vvill,  hearty cooperation, common sense and  strictly business principles arc applied  to its affairs.  UNWORTHY A GREAT  PARTY  Liberals all over the province are no  doubt cursing the stupidity oC the  Kevelstoke Liberals in raising such a  hullabaloo about the appointment of  a Conservative to the gold commission-  ership of Noilh Knnlenay." Il has  sown the seeds of distrust in Hie  minds of the Opposition Conservatives,  who will nalurally evolve thusly���������lithe Liberals want to'exclude Conservatives from office thus early in the  game, what chance vvill the Conservative lci.deis of the Opposition have of  attaining offlrt* when the victory is  won and the Liberal party in a position tn dispense provincial' prizes  amongst the victors? If tlie enunciate ns of the; fiat against! the To flier Government at New Westminister had  been piovinoial. Oppositionists the  Kevelstoke incident would be insignificant and only counted as a local  ebullition of personal reeling. But lhe  New Westminister plaH'orin vvas promulgated by-the Liberal party���������l'rn-  vint-i-il Lihoralsor Dominion. Liberals  matters very little, it being preeisely  fhe same thing. The chief plank'in  this platform . vvas .that, the Turner  Government must bc'i-coted out.-.'.Tin"  is conclusive evidence IhnlMhe Turner  Government w.-is-.-ul.judged to tie Conservatives hy those who drew up the  -clause, because it would he utterly absurd to suppose tliat any political  party would deliberately work for the  extinction of a government of its own  color.  Having thus dubbed lhe Turner Government Coii.servalive, the Liberal  party, under lhe emphatic decl-ir.i-  Lion that Dominion party lines shall  not be introduced (as yet) into Provincial politics, invited the co-operation of the Oppositionists, Conservative leaders and all. in the task of turn-  '7ig"t liTTG i) vcrn m-efftTiTTf" Tlie" "O ppo"  sitionists. Conservative leaders ,, and  all. readily responded to these overtures, and things were going as merrily  as a marriage bell, or vvas it tlie bell  that was ringing thu knell of a doomed  government? lint Kevelstoke was a  marplot. Revelstoke upset the soup  pot when it was on the point of boiling. Kevelstoke vvas the straw which  showed whidi way the wind- was  blowine, and the rampaging which  has been taking place in the ancient  little town np norlh has set the Conservative leaders of the Opposition a-  lliinking.  What, is the use. of any further attempt to bulldoze I ho**'Opposition ?  Let the Liberals come out manly and  straightforwardly and fight the election as Liheials. If the Conservative  element of the Opposition choose to  lend a hand it will not be at the expensive of delusive hopes, as will be  their portion as tilings are going novv.  It i.s very evident tliat the subsidised  Liberal papers all over the province  have received their cue. but the independent journals have heen overlooked, and while theie may not be many  of theni they will do their utmost to  expose, if not prevent.the perpetration  of a political dodge that vvouid bring  reproach on the province  on the Liberal party  MR. FRASER _0H HIMSELF  To llie I'.ilUm-iir llie -  Sir: In your issue of tin* Slh inst., I  see im item copied from an article in  the "Kossland Time.-." beaded 'Political Objections" (in your nolu and comment column y"ii term it, "political  coinedy") which with the knowledge  of inside facts possessed by the writer  of the said article makes, so you state  piquant and interesting reading.  Novv, Sir. I take it that the aforesaid  article is your view, or the view you  wish the public to take of what yon  term "Political Comedy."  Permit me to say that I did not resign my position as Alining Kecoider,  Deputy Kegislrar, etc.. on account of  any party fealty, my family's interests  being lo me my liir.t consideration, and  my self respect, the. next. JMy reasons  were stated in my letter cf resignation  forwarded to The Honorable .Mr. Turner, dated Dec. 17lh last and duly  accepted.  Having been employed as Alining  Recorder, etc., uniler JUr. .1. D. Graham, himself a Conservative in politics  aud a man of sterling worth and unquestioned integrity, above suspicion  of petty schemes and "Side Pulls," it  must appear very strange, to your  readers why f did notresigu under him  if I am such a partisan, but perlrips  Mi*. Graham is not sojgood a Conservative as Mr. J. D. Sibbald, of this how-  over the public can judge. .  No. Mr. Editor, you must look elsewhere lor an excuse; say, for instance,  at- the public meeting; held by Mr, Kellie where va motion condemning the  appointment of Mr. .1. li. Sibbald as  Gold Commissioner and Government.  Agent was made, and only six hands  went up against that motion, and of  these only three were voters ; this, too.  in an audience of nearly three hundred. Tt was at this meeting that those  who had been caucusing in back  rooms of hotels and oLher places and  engineering this uppoinlnieiiL against  thif wishes "of the people "and the interests of our district were told that they  had misrepresented and deceived lho  Clovi'i-nine'ifcsiii- their choice. The  people of this dislrict. will not he hoodwinked by your old Eastern political  schemers, they ask for a man who  commands the respect and confidence  of llie prospector, .minis owner and  capitalist alike ; other than this it is  only ton apparent to all interested iu  West Kootenav that the district must  sillier.  I resigned my position. Sir, not because of the Government's actions in  the premises, but beiause 1 could not  _c_o_ns_eieiitiouslv work in the oflice with  .1.1). Sibbald,  a man whose business  career in Revelstoke and in the Mining  Brokerage business in the district has  been such, that ��������� it would have been  impossible for ine to work with any  confidence orrespecL. Those are some  of my reasons.  I remain, Sir  Your obedient servant.  Fuicd. Fuaskii.  agree wilh it, nor does it follow, as  some people' see-in to think, that everything, including ihoiiiiTespondcnce and  advertisements, which appear in the  columns of a newspaper, is necessarily  rathcred by it.  So much for the paragraph from the  Times. Now I'or the let ter. The type  written copy was brought into our  ollice without, cover not by tho signet-  hut by another gentleman. Mr. li. N.  Coursier, to wit, which is to say the  least of it rather an unusual way to  receive communications oven for a  1'owspaper. But it is quite obvious  that although the sentiments mny be  Mr. Fraser's. the letter itself is not  his, and in fact thai, he could not have  written it. however much he may have  desired to do so. The voice may be  the voice of Jacob but the hand is the  hand of Ksau. And the Hkkai.i" hereby challenges .Mr. Fraser to sit down  al a (.able simply provide'l with pens,  ink and ar.d paper in the Hkkald oifite  or any neutial place which he may  choose, and reproduce the same, letter,  or anything in the. points of spelling,  style and gi animal- at all like it. provided that we shall have the right to  publish the fresh production without  alteration. It strikes the Hkrald  that Mr. Fraser's own qualific.iLioiis  for tho position, which he. has just  vacated,' were not so numerous or  sti iking, that he can afford with safety  to himself' to criticize anybody else's  appointment. A portion'of lhat tenderness of conscience, of which' lie. just  now making such an elaborate display  over Mr. Sibbald's appointment, might,  in our opinion have been more usefully  employed in deciding some time ago  whether to accept his own.  The propriety of allowing the llKn-  alo to be in any way party to such a  contemptible, scurrilous and unfounded attack on a man in Mr. Sibbald's  position, too ill to get out of. bed.  much less defend himself, vvas so very  doubtful, lhat for some time we hesitated about publishing it. However,  taking the circumstances of the. case  into.consideration the Hkkald does  not suppose the letter vvill cause Mr.  Sihb.-ild any loss of sleep, and has decided to publish it. We consider that  the publication will hurt the signer a  good deal moie than tho man he attacks, while Mr. Fraser in his new-  role of the conscience-stricken patriot  was altogether too humorous a figure  not to be allowed a chance to furnish  a little amusement to the public. Mr.  Fi user is an abhorrer of cliques and  corners. If he will throw some light  on the methods by which he was  chosen from the "Milk Walk." like  another David from among the sheep  f(>ld.-",-to-be--mining=recordi'r.-deput.y-  regi.trar, etc., we shall be in a better  position .to test the sincerity of his  assertions.���������-Kd.]  AT THE HALCYON SPRINGS  UNCLE SAM'S MAN  AT SKAGWAY HAS  MORE -ZEAL  THAN DISCRETION.

Fire at Mrs. Sergeants  The No. 2 Fire Brigade had their  first run early on Thursday afternoon.  when the alarm was given that Mrs.  Sergeant's house near the Revelstoke  saw mill was on fire. The boys turned out well ar.d in spile of their not  being in possession of any hose, succeeded iu arresting lhe flames with  buckets. The furniture* was all saved  except a fevv si nail articles on the  walls, but one side of the house was  destroyed, so that the building is uninhabitable. The furniture looked  veiy forlorn being as it was thrown  out in the deep snow and although the  furniture was saved, the distress to  tlie family of being rendered suddenly  homeless in the middle of Winter is  considerable.  [Jlr. Fraser takes himself too seriously altogether. The Hkiiald published  the. clipping from the Times, as every  newspaper publishes clippings, not to  endorse iheni, but simply because it  thought it would be of iiiierost lo its  readeis. The Ht'ltAI.p noted -Mr.  Fraser's appointment without comment.and noted hisresignation without  comment. It is perfectly capable of  making any observations on any  topic, which it considers worth it.  without calling in the aid of any  other journal. As a matter of fact it  dors not regard the appointment or  : resignation of a head clerk in the government ollice heie to be of sufficient  importance to call for any remarks  one way or the other. The paragraph  in question was reprinted as being of  interest to our readers, coining, as  everybody knows it does, from an old  Itevelstoke newspaper man. Theie  is for that matter more than one palpable tnistatciuent in it, besides the  one, to which Jlr. Fra-er take's exception. No government employe,  as far as tho. Hkiiald knows, has  resigned at. Trout Lake, nor was Mr.  Sibbald universally mentioned as  Revelstoke"s first mayor up to the  time of his appointment. The clipping  above the one in question i.s not  fathered, or endorsed hy the IhiRAI.I)  in any sense of the word. The llmi.  /.LD does not agiee wilh its point, of  view at all. But it is published as being interesting fiom the fact that it is  an attack on the Grit policy, made  by a Grit newspaper, owned by a Grit  member of tlie Dominion Parliament.  It does not follow that, a paragraph  nav not make interesting reading  Alterations and Additions just being  Commenced at this Popular Watering Place.  "Mr". Thos.

Ei  SA1URDAY, JANUARY   10,.   1S0S.  HOW THE GAME IS PL A YED  During the bye election in Centre  Toronto, when the Liberal government found it necessary to strain  every nerve for the purpose of  holding the seat, the Globe'talked  a good deal about, tariff  stability for 10 years, and tbe impression ' was generally created  that there would be no further  tinkering, but that the present  tariff would bo let alone. A short  time, since, however, during his  visit to England Hon. Mr. Fielding,  a member of the Liberal Cabinet,  vouchsafed some information iu  Sheffield, which was denied to the  Canadian public, in an interview  published in tho SheOield Independent and _w~hich has since been  reproduced iu the columns of the  Globe Mr. Fielding said:  '���������As the matter stands today the  preference to British goods over  the continental goods does not  exi-t. But after the 1st August,  180S, the Belgian and German  treaties will come to an end, aud  thus all obstacles to preferential  arrangements between England  and her colonies will disappear.  Then the terms ot the preferential  tariff will apply to the products of  Great Britain, and to such of her  colonies as are williug to adopt a  liberal trade policy towards  Canada." -..  So that after all, the stability  promised iu aid of the Centre  Toronto election is merely a myth,  and there are to be further changes  next August.  Another important concession  was announced at the same time,  '"1in"d���������th"e^GI'ob"e-"^was~riot"at���������all-  backward' in pointing out the  many advantages which it would  bring to Canada. The Postmaster  General, Mr. Mulock, had made all  the necessary arrangements for  the establishment, of a three cent  letter rate to the Old Country, aud  as a saving of two cents on letters  meant a good deal to a great many  people iu Canada, the arrangement* met with general approval  and the Liberal government was  held up as the practical friend of  the people. The three cent rate  was worked' for all it "vvasu-orth,.  but the Centre Toronto election is  over, and now that Mr. Bertram  has secured a majority by its  means, the three cent rate is found  to be impracticable, lor the simple  reason that the authorities in  England won't hear of it.  The schemes which .work so well  in Federalelections are now being  adapted with apparent success to  Provincial politics. A general  election is impending in the  Province of Ontario, and the  Opposition backed by the  electorate made such a row for the  -jurpose of .-stopping the export of  3ogs that some expedient had to be  ���������devised to meet the crnis. Otherwise, things were going to go  ���������badly with V the Liberals.  Having learned something from  recent experience the government  <hit upon a brilliant scheme. They  ���������have actually brought in a bill  which will probably become law,  preventing the exportation of  log?. They have also made the  necessaryarrahgeinents to provide  for the Michigan lumber men to  ���������whom they are pledged, by having  the bill disallowed at Ottawa after  the elections are oyer. The  Laurier government at Hardy s  suggestion will knock it out on the  ground that it interferes with  trade and commerce.!; But this will  not take place until the session  has been rushed through and the  electorate appealed to, which will  be prior to April SOth, when tbe  bill comes into force. Jn the mean  time the Michigan lumber men are  taking things ea-y. They recognize Mr. Hardy's difficulty, and  admire his cleverness. They are  -saying nothing���������not even sawing  twood. ���������     c .     ,  When the next seat is desired  c_r the Liberal party the people  A CHAPTER IN HISTORY  From The Calgary Herald.  As    our    readers   are ��������� already  aware, the lion. Charles Herbert  Mackintosh     has    resigned    the  position of  Lieutenant Governor  of the North "West Territories for  the purpose of giving his personal  supervision   to  his   largo mining  interests    in    British   Columbia.  Within the past four years during  which Mr.   Mackintosh   occupied  the honorable position  of   representative ot Her Majesty in the  Territories,   many    events    have  occurred   which    will   occupy   a  prominent place when the history  of Western Canada comes to   be  written.    Mr. Mackintosh was a  man who had during his political  career   proved himself to possess  ability  as   well  it's   energy,   and  when in 1S93, the   late Sir  John  Thompson chosohim as Lieutenant  Governor of the Territories, ic was  generally    felt    that- while   the  Territories were to becongtatu-  lated, the Conservative party  in  parliament. had' .been deprived of  one  of  its .best' men.    No more  fitting tribute to  tho conduct of  Mr. Ma'ckintjsh during his term of  ollice  could  be  found   than   the  acknowledgment   made    a  short  time    since    by    the    Attorney  General and the Commissioner of  Public   Works,  of   the   dignified,  conscientious and courteous manner in which Mr. Mackintosh had  invariably acted in the performance  of  his  duty as  Lieutenant  Governor.  Mr. Mackintosh had not been  very long at Itegiiia, before he  succeeded in directing the  attention of Sir John Thompson's  government to the enormous  possibilities of tho and then  almost unknown lauds in the far I  north, and it will be remembered  that it was at his initiative that  the Mackenzie and Yukon districts  were organized and named.- To his  efforts too, was due the establishment of law and order in the  Yukon by the sending of the  Mounted Police to that district.  The Territorial exhibition of  1S!)5 was, however, the largest contract undertaken by Mr.  Mackintosh. His linn faith in the  good results which he felt sure  would follow a successful exhibition of the products and  resources of the Territories, helped  him through a period of considerable risk and uncertainty. As the  result proved, his faith was more  than jus tilled by the event. Tlie  Governor General came up trom  Ottawa to open the Territorial  fair. Over 8,000 entries were  received --double the number  hitherto recordrd at AVinnipeg.  Thousand-: of persons from all  parts of Canada and tho United  States came and saw and  wondered. The North AVest Territories were advertised in a manner  never before attempted, and an  impetus was giveu to mixed  farming and stock raising which  is' being felt today. The comparatively small appropriation  which had been placed at tlie  disposal of Mr. Mackintosh proved  utterly .inadequate aud it tvas  found necessary to lay the matter  again before parliament, and as a  result_qf liis _Honor|s personal  exertions, payment, of outstanding  fair accounts was promised and  subsequently carried out.  Last autumn. Mr. Mackintosh  paid a visit to Englaud where he  met an old friend and school  fellow, Mr. AVhitaker Wright, who  introduced him tn a large" number  of capitalists. Eairore his return,  he was the honored gue~t at a  magnificent banquet in Lond ~n  which was presided over by Lord  DutTeriu. Ou that occasion Mr.  Mackintosh made the speech of hii  life. In burning words, lie impressed upon his hearers the  growing importance of AVestern  Canada as a field for the invest  ment of capital. The London  papers of the time admitted that  he had done more to enlighten  the British public on that question  than anv previous speaker or  writer. The idea caught on in the  right quarter and as a result "Tlie  British America Corporation,  Limited" was ->rgnni'/."d with a  capital of seven and a half millions  of dollars, Mr. Mackintosh becoming a, director. The cnmpmy has  acquired some of the best claims  in the Kootenay as well as in the  Yukon, and numbers among ttsi  shareholders some of the strongest'  financiers in England. As managing director of the corporation  Mr. Mackintosh will have full  control of its operations in British  Columbia and the Yukon, nnd his  undoubted ability and influence  should bring him success. Mr.  Mackintosh ha~ the happy faculty  of maKing friends wherever he  goes, and the still happier faculty  of keeping them when made.  Tin-: IIkrat.d joins in the  unanitnous wish of the people and  press of the Territories in wishing  Mr. Mackintosh health, wealth and  happiness in his new sphere.  HOW IT WORKS  AGAINST  GENUINE MINER  THE  GAMBLERS    HAVE   A   SNAP  The Burden of the Complaint Which the  Dawson City Deputation Will Make  ---A Recently Returned Klondyker  Shows How the Gamblers Profit at  the   Expense   of Working   Miners  Ottawa, Jan. ".���������While waiting for  the deputation of Dawson City miners  which was to have waited upon the  (iovernmenl. today to protest against  the mining regulations in lhe Yukon  district, a recently returned Klondyker unloaded the burden of their complaints. "The chief objection," he  said, "is to the royalty."  "What is the matter with iti-"  "Whv, it gives advantage to the  gambler over the working miner. I'll  tell you how it does so. Suppose I  succeed after a hard prospecting tiip  in locating a good claim. The lirst  thing 1 must do is to go down to Dawson City to record it and get help to  work it. Along comes a crowd and in  no time all the ground around the  claim is staked off by fellows who just  hang round for such chances. 1 go in  and work my claim and of course must  pay royalty." The other fellows just  lie around the camp and do nothing  but speculate on their claims. They  do not work them but wait to see  how mv claim turns out, and gamble  on the "result. All the Government  gets out; of their claims is theentry. foe  of $15 aud a renewal fee of $1" per  year.  "This is unfair to the actu-.l worthing miner, and keeps down the active  development of the country. If the  Government instead of taxing the  output highly, were to fix the price of  a claim at $50 in the first instance, it  would yield a good revenue that there,  would be no trouble about collect ing.  11 would have to be paid at the gold  commissioner's ollice before the miner  could get his title.  "Iain a Canadian. I haye mined in  California, in Australia and other  camps, but my own country is the  only one I have struck yet where laws  are made to hinder and'discournge the  miner. I can tell yov. this, that if the  royalty law is not. changed you will  see thousands of miners (putting Canadian territory to work on the American side in the spring. Ihey will try  their luck at. Forty "Mile or in the  Manook country. The jManook country has not been much prospectedyet.  biit is in a promising belt, and miners  will sooner work where the ground is  not quite so rich than pay this enormous royally.'1  GATHERINGS  .J. li.

The same thing  applies to a les*. extent, to the cr.nti-  ne.'iit of Europe-. Canada is ou every  tongue.  The C.P.R. telegraphers' commillvo  have carried their appeal befoie the  highest official of th'! Canadian Pacific  Railway, Sir William Van Home.  This is equivalent to a rejection of the  terms put, forward by Mr. Shaugh-  nessv. - The conflict between the  telegrapher.-and the mil way continues to rest on the minimum salary of  operators. If no satisfactory solution  is arrived at, the telegraphers will  demand a iii.:etiiig of the Board of  Directors of . t he Canadian Pacific  Railway Company. The organization  of operators which this committee  represents extends over the North  American continent, and may he  considered one of th*: most powerful  of the numerous orders of railway  employees.  fn its mad race to metropolitan!-/.'*  itself, says the Trail News, Kossland.  has added to her other evils, an opium  joint," conducted by two almoned-  eyed celestials, "with the. same bland  smile." ft is said that the place.

But the shrowd Mongolians are equal  tn any emergency, and the instant an  oflicer appears on the scene, all smnk-  pariiphornalia disappears and nothing  is in sight save two or three Innocent  looking Chinamen., chatting among  themselves, and. perhaps, a white  man or two wliei were too slow in  takinir the tip to disappear. A number of Kossland   men,   prominent in  business and social affairs, are said to  have been seen in the place.  Recruits are being taken on at the  barracks ior the North AVest Mounted  Police.  A man named Julius Xante has been  sentenced so 80 years imprisonment by  Judge Baker at Chicago. He will  probably have forgotten his troubles  by the time he is discharged.

A dairy man named Cassels and his  family, who live in the north end of  Winnipeg, had a narrow escape from  poisoning last week. They ate canned  salmon for dinner and shortly after  medical assistance had to be called to  relieve them from their sufferings.  They are now out of danger.  The appointment of Judge Jefto to  to the lieutenant-governorship of  Quebec leaves a vacancy on the bench,  which will probably bcYiiled by Francois Langelier. The vacancy is in the  Montreal district, but Langelier wants  to be located in Quebec. It is said  that Judge Routhier vvill be transferred  in order to give Langelier what he  wants.  If the editor of the average modern  newspaper were to take advantage of  all the inducements held out to him  he might soon be a millionaire. If he  published a paper according to the  popular notion he would wind up in  thepoorhouse. If he published half  tin* items sent him he would spend  half his time in gaol and the other  half in tho hospital.  IC. Gallaway, of Vancouver, sent  some homing pigeons to tlie Klondyke  about three months ago, one of which  has just returned. A message had  boon attached to the bird's leg by a  brass ring. The ring vvas still on, but  the message was gone. The bird is  very- much the worse for wear, but has  the* distinction of making tne first  trip from Klondike by the air route.  J. K.-jElkjar who left for the Klon-  dvke from Winnipeg last spring with  17 cattle mid'some horses, has returned home. He had some rough experiences on the road, and found travelling expenses very high. When he  reached Dawson he sold his beef for  SI.2*5 per lb., without any difficulty.  He killed some of his cattle on the  road and packed the meat to his destination.

AA'hen the news arrived on  Thursday that the United States district and circuit courts were closed to  any further applications on hia behalf,  Durrant entirely gave up all hope and  broke down entirely.

Two hundred invitations to be present at the execution  were sent out, and at once the city of  San Francisco became Hooded with  bogus invitations, many of which  were, sold before tlio fraud was detected. Before Durrant was brought to  the scaffold, AVarden Hall addressed-  those present, asking for absolute silence and deem urn during the execution. Contrary to general expectation,  Durrant showed very little nervousness at the crucial moment, the  preliminaries having been at his own  request fully gone over in his cell on  the previous day. lie made no statement, and died apparently without a  struggle. The public were" not allowed  t o view his features after theexecution.  Warden Hale has acceded to the  request of Durrant, and no autopsy  will be held.

Under,i nevv 1,-uv regarding  the importation or sealskins travellers  inlo the States are being held up on  the frontier and every articl'i of clothing made of sealskin from an old cap  to a new sacque stripped oil" them and  confiscated. It is nut' a question of  paying duty ..-it all. Nobody in the  Slates, travellers, foreigners or natives  i.s allowed to own any artirle maiii* of  sealskin at all.'. You may be entitled  to liberty n'nd the pursuit of happiness  according to the constitution, but the  liberty of wearing a sealskin waistcoat  and the happiness of possessing a sealskin jacket, is li'gidly-. denied to the  dwellers and sojourners iu'.. the land 1 f  the free. Of (-our-'e if pen-pie chose to  live in a country, which is-.-ippari'iilly  endeavoring lo assimilate'its statutes  lo the feudal regulations of lhe middle  ages, tbey have got to abide- by the  consequences, but when it. comes tn  robbing Canadian'and English ladies  of valuable articles of clniliing under  the .plea 01' law. il seems as if it vvas  getting'about linn; for inlerfereiice on  the part of the Imperial and Dominion  .���������uillleirilies.
