The arrival 'of Mr. Gamble fi-nni the  coast on Tuesday with* instructions to  start right on with the work of protecting the liver Imnk for the provincial government, threw a gleam of  light on the situation. When Mr.  Gamble received his instructions, the  Victoria .-itithbrUies was quite aware  of the refusal of the fcdei-al government to" give any help in the work.  He is registered at the Hotel Revelstoke and is hiring men to commence  operations at. once. He will l.iy out  the woi k so ns to save the bank this  spring and at the same time form the  basis of more extended operations  later. Mt.Gamble expects the work  will last till about the middle of April.  He wHl open an office - in the government building and will hire men there.

But the blame is laid on  che Turner government, and it was the  local I rump card of the Revelstoke  Grit reformers. It was too gooel n  thing to throw away. The next Dominion elections nre a long way off.  the provincial elections are near.  Another forty feet or so of river bunk  cannot be expected to cut in'-.'.cli ice  alongside the telling election cry that,  but for the Turner government the  work on the bank would have been at  all events started this year. Of course  the idea that Mr. Turner would  go on with the work'whether or  no never occurred to them. ��������� The Herald wants the electors to make a note  of this. Mr. Turner's mistake was  certainly due to an honest misapprehension of the responsibility of a provincial government for work of this  kind, a missapprehension. which a  more capable representation at Mr.  Kellie's hands would easily have removed. As soon as Mr. Turner discovered his mistake he acknowledged  it and took immediate steps to remedy  it. But the refusal of the Grit government to meet him half way now is due  to nothing at all but a desire to make  capital for their friends in the coming provincial election Do the electors think that people capable of a trick  of Ibis sort are the kind of men to put  in power in the interests of a clean, capable and public-spirited administration. * "-  English Cooking under the superintendence  of .Mrs. Lapworth.

NOTE AND COMMENT,  Rarely in the history of responsible  government, hns any minister of the  Crown presented so pitable a spectacle  as Mr. Blair, the minister of railways,  when bringing; the Yukon railway  contract before the house. It was not  merely th.it his defense of some of  the clauses objected to was ludicrously  weak, as, for ins-timee, -that the mon-  jopo.ly.clause was inserted by the government in the interest-of the people  in ;lhe face of tliej opposition, of tbe  contractors.. But.his .ignorance oT^t.he  ilet.iils'elic-!r,ed uiidi:i**'iiir.V,Foster>.piL-.  ...  ..*- ..- - -.. , __   t--.-.   .     ��������� ,    ;-i>* 1  ��������� less  cross    examination   was   almost  incredible. TleAveak point about the  Stickeen as an. all Canadian route is  obviously the fact that- goods have  to be trans-shipped fiom the ocean to  the river.steamers at WrarigJ*!. This  to Mr. Rlair was quite iiJ"new point.  He thought no customs duties' would  be charged on trans-shipment, but had  not consulted the law officers- of the  Ciown or the. United States authorities on the matter. In fact he could  give no information at all on a point,  which;* we would think ^would have  been considered even by a school boy.  He had no knov. v!ge of any estiinntes  ~ofrthe_prob"ab!^~5t-"of-:t->e~road-anci  did not {even know if-* any had been  asked for before signing the contract.  "Some one should be i..,charge of the  bill, who does know," said MivFoster,  and Mr. Blair had nothing to sayjTho  Yukon contract has been more criticised and discussed than any.railway  measure brought before.,, parliament  since the days of the debate on the C,  P. R. The circumstances surrounding  it have made it the most important  brought before the house in twenty  years. And yet the head of the railway department is ignorant of the  most elementary facts connected with  it, when introducing it. And this is  the administration which wius elected  for its preeminent business qualities,  to.rescue a suttering country lrom the  financial incapacity of their predeces  sors.

The position j of the Federal  government' in lending itself tii a  scheme of this, kind is pitiable in .the  extreme. From, the beginning ot last  month Mr. Turner, as head of}the pro  vincial government, has been endeavoring to get* some answer from the  Public Works depart irieiit"to his proposals, and in vain. At last quite recently the provincial authorities.received- a refusal, couched in very  abrupt terms, to assist in the project.  Sir Wilfred Laurier, when on his visit  to the west as the 1 hen leader of the  opposition, expressed^ his deep grief at-  the-apathy. of- lhe,*go\:er.ntiu'nt over  this'iimtter. and. ple'dgedhiinself to "do  better. Hon.' Clifford Sifton quite le-  cently declared his eagerness to assist  in the good work. It was a'local  plank in Mr. Bostock's platform at the  last election. All this has gone for  nothing. The desire-to discredit the  Turner government has prevailed over  every consideration of honor, nay.  even of policy. Theold Conservative  administration may not have been nn  ideal government. It may have made  mistakes. Eighteen years of continuous power may have rendered it out  of toueh.with public opinion and iin"  pressed it with the -idea that it was a  ruling-caste and-nnt-mei-ely���������the-head-  of a political party--.But the Herald  will undertake, to say that it was too  big to lend itself to a petty deal of this  description, or to treat a provincial  government with rudei.ess and partiality to score a political point. And  if they will venture to so treat this  community when dealing with an independent provincial government,  how would they be likely to treat one  that had fallen under its ��������� displeasure  with a Grit government in the ascendant in this province. Here is a foretaste, of what we may expect, if we  allow British'Columbia to be chained  to the triumphal chariot of the  petty Grit despots now ruling  at -Ottawa. If they do these  things in a green tree, what  will    he   done   in     the     dry ?  The Hkrald is willing to give the  beneiitof its larger circulation .to the  two following telegrams, which were  sent by Hon. Mr. Tarte and Mr. Bostock and published in the Mail:  Ottawa, Feb. 10.181)3.  Provincial government having declined to contribute, fur Revelstoke  protection works, item $10,500 was  dropped from estimates last year. We  then cx.nt.ot do anything.  I. J. Tarte. .  ���������    Ottawa, Feb. 10,1808."  Government refuses to take action.  Have done all I can. Bostock.  Mr. Tarte cannot do anything, Mr.  Bostock has done, all he can, and the  Dominion government flatly refuses  to help us out. The fact i.s not a point  was to be lostintheadvantage given to  the Grits by the Turner government in  not meeting the Federal _-,rant, inadequate though it was, last session.  There is little doubt but that the  blame for that really lies with the  local member, who was always very  lukewarm in his support of the idea  th'itmoney for this object should notbe  requested firm the provincial govern-  He held the brief for the town  aud bungled the case, really, the Hek-  The position of the Turner government presents the mnst favorable contrast. In spite of, the fact that Unrepresentative for North Kootenay in  his anxiety to get on what he iniagines  to be the winning side, has left tin-  ranks of their supporters' on the first  trifling pretext which presented itself,  the government is prepared to deal  with this question as the government,  of the country, and not as the heads  of a gang of political tricksters. From  the very first time that Mr. Turnei  took the matter up he has worked at  it as a business proposition. Tbe lii-sl  result of his visit here was the mission  of Mr. Gamble to report on the whole  question. As soon as the report mis  considered negotiations were opened  hy the government with the Ottawa  authorities. Had the latter had sufficient courtesy to intimate to the  provincial administration their unwillingness to do anything further in the  matter at once, Mr. Gamble would  doubtless have been sent here to begin  the work a month ago and all this valuable time, would have been saved.  The provincial government having  made up its mind, has kept the question ft-nstantly w view.   Tliey pledged  themselves to do it and have kept  their promise. Tliey were in communication with Ottawa before Mr.  Kellie and the petition reached Victoria at all. The petition will be useful to strengthen their hands in asking  for the appropriation, but as we can  see now. was really not needed to keep  theni up to tbeir pledges. As for Mr.  Kellie, he has been, like a chip in por-  i idge, uo good and no harm, and is apparently occupying his leisure hours  in stringing together a lot ol fool  questions which are simply making  himself and his constituency ridiculous throughout the province. On  the side of the provincial government  is business and dignity, on the side of  the Federal authorities nothing but  party spirit and littleness. Are these  the people, whose supporters iu this  province, we .ire now being asked to  support in the sacred name of Reform?  PINGSTON   GREEK. .  Wonderful Showing of Gold Ore on the  Arrow Lake.  Pingstrn Creek runs into the  upper  Arrow lake, just opposite the St. Leon  Hot.Springs, thiough a lange  of low.  timbered hills.    A  good pack trail has  been cut by the miners themselves for  ten   miles   up  the  creek,  crossing it  about   three   miles    from     the   lake.  Three years airo locations weie made  near the mouth of the creek and along  the shore of the lake of very promising leads  of gold and  silver  bearing  ore, and in  a quiet  way considerable  development work has been done.   At  the mouth of the creek one company  of miners  have run a (30-foot tunnel.  W. Green  has a 10-foot open cut on a  lead on the lake "going  $0 to $7 in silvei   and  gold,  and    improving   with  depth.     Day,  Dawson  and Craddock  have 130 feet of a good  working tunnel or. a claim one-half mile back from  the   lake.   Other  development   work  has been done on different numerous  claims in  the  vicinity,   but very little  was heard .aboilt .the camp until the  -disrovery of.- the -I'ingsfcon dod<' six  iniles . up   the   creek,    last   summer.  The length  of this  lode  is almost incredible.   The outcrop,   which is very  extensive and heavily minei-alized, is  traceable on   tbe surface for 12 miles,  on claim after claim,  showing a width  of from 10 to  100  feet.     The country  rock   is   a   schist.       The   ore,   which  greatly  resembles  Rossland ore in appearance,  is pyritite. and contains an  average   value of   $20  to  tbe  ton  in  gold, silver and copper.    The whole  width of  the  vein matter is composed  of pyritite. quartz and solid galena in  seams.' the  galena giving  heavy percentages of_lead up to CO per cent.   On  ~oh^claimr~tI������r"Ex"celsior, "specimens  from a 12-foot ledge went as high as  $30 iu gold to,the ton,  and an average  assay for gold on the claim goes all the  way from a tr.ue to $*~0.     Not  much  development work  has  been done but  the   character, of   the lead seems to  show decided improvement below the  surface.    Development  work  is easy,  as pay ore can be taken out right from  the face of the hill  and transported to  deep water.    An  aerial   train could be  constructed   at   a   moderate   cost,  as  there'is  a   natural   grade down  the  creek   along  a   hog's   back,   running  from the range  of hills in the interior  lo the lake.    Timber is plentiful and  every   kind  of facility   for easy   and  profitable   mining  i.s   on   hand.     An  enormous quantity of ore can lie won  at little cost and shipped continuously.  Pingston Creek  will be the scene of a  very lively camp in  the near-future.  Several Nakusp   people  with   money  behin'l them have acquired claims and  will push operations  along next summer.      Without any  desire  to exaggerate, the Pingston  lode  is probably  oneof the  most  extraordin.-i.iy showings of ore iu extent in the province,  ami what development has been done  tends   to   indicate that   the ledge is  both permanent and increases in value  with depth.   Next summer may show  some   startling   developments   in the  camp.   Ac-cot ding to all accounts some  forehanded Nakusp speculators have  already   staked    a    townsite   at   the  mouth of the cieek.  MURDER.AND; ROBBERY  LORD W.

Last summer a discovery of a'very  highly mineralized section of country  was made on the divide between the.  head of a small .tributary of -Carnes .  creek and another nf Laforme, a creek  which  joins   the   Columbia  only   20  miles above  Revelstoke' on   the   Big  Bend trail. -The   find   was"  very  remarkable ns shewing how little prospected are parts of the  country- even'  within easy distance'of a lwuse of_snp-  plies  like  Revelstoke.   The  first   recorded strike wns made by three prospectors named Jackson,  McRvie  and  Gore about 6 miles up the * creek from  the  Columbia,    who    located   .seven -  claims cat ry ing both gold .and galena,  one assay giving as high as $21 iu gold  from a surface specimen.   Other pros-'  pectors   immediately    went    iri   and -  found that the reports were" not exaggerated, the whole mountain, whicli .  was entirely iinprospected being full.-  of leads.   One ledge of concentrating -  galena was'locnted seven feet wide on,.=  the surface.!'1 The formation is a schist "*  with limestone dykes running through."  it in a N. W. by S. E." direction.   The '���������  lielt was traced by Mr. Nagle into the ,  granite where it was cut off abruptly. ".  He found very rich float in the creek -  apparently of glacial origin.   Later on,.  Mr. Eil. Adair made the discovery" of '  the Adair Group  on Mineral Mountain, four miles up   tbe  creek, which  gives a most extraordinary ������hewin������ of .'  galena, sulphides and arsenical   iron ,  ore.   In order to open up this country  pioperlv a  trail is required.

Those nations will prove  themselves littest to survive aiitl  to control the trade of the world  that llrst learn to carry on industry without ruinous'conliiet between employers aud workmen.  Striks are too costls". They are as  destructive as war itself to industrial supremacy. Some other  method must be found of settling  disputes. Capital and labor must  learn to work together in harmony for increasing the product  of their combined forces. The nation that lirst learns to do without  strikes will have taken a long step  toward securing the industrial supremacy of the world.

FEB.   1(3,     1S0S.  THE   AUTHOR   OF     "ALICE  WONDERLAND" DEAD  IN  In view of the appointment of  the Marquis of L'orne as honorary  Colonel of the Argyle Light Iufan-  try, at Belleville, Ontario, and as  it  reminds  us that,  despite   our  traditional    peaceful  policy,   we  .might at some time be .drawn into armed conflict with our neigh:  bore, we venture to   make a few  observations        regarding        the  strength of Uncle Sam.   The Un-.  nited States,   as  is   well knovvn,  ranks, fifth among the naval powers of the world in the matter of  warships.   Great Britain, France,  Russia  and   Italy,. in the  order  named,'take precedence, and Germany's strength is so near that of  the States that they maybe said;  to be about   evenly  matched.   It  must be kept in mind, however,  that the apparent difference between the naval strength of the  States and that say. of England is  offset to a  great extent by their  geographical position.   "Uncle Sam  in case of war would be a formidable opponent for nations having  a naval and military equipment.  So long as his people keep together, he could never be subjugated.  The territory to be seized is   too  extensive, too well populated, and  the opposition   which   would   be  developed in the course of a very  few months too strong.   The   position in our own case, therefore,  is as to the extent of  the damage  ���������whieh-England and-Cauada-com-  bined could'inflict before the conflict wore itself out and peace negotiations were begun.   The British would labor under a disadvantaged that they must traverse many  miles of sea before making an   attack upon either coast.   The Canadian troops, however, might run  amuck, sweep everything  before  them, seize Washington, and conquer the United States, providing  of course the Argyle, Light Infantry of Belleville,  Ontario, led the  van   with the   desperate swashbuckler,   the   Marquis    of Lome  leading them on to victory.���������Free  Lance, Wetaskiwin.-  All children and also grown ups,  have suffered a great loss in the death  of the famous���������it would perhaps not  be extravagant to sav the immortal  author of "Alice in Wonderland". The  name of "Lewis Carroll" (the nora de  plume under which the Rev. C. L.  Dodgson wrote) was familiar to hundred's of thousands who had never  heard of the Rev. Mr. Dodgson the  distinguished mathematician and Ox-  fonl don.  He was educated at Christ Church  Oxford and was mathematical lecturer there for 20 years. Besides writing  a number of mathematical works, he  wrote several bright and amusing aud  interesting pamphlets. In one of these  writings he parodies the propositions  of Euclid, with inimitable wit  Euclid wrote, "A straight line may  be drawn from any one point to any  other noiut," and -'A circle may be described from any centre at any distance from that centre,". . Mr. Dodg-  son's parody is "A discussion mav be  raised on any point at any distance  from that point." Again Euciid wrote,  "A plain superficies is one in which  any two points being taken) the  straight line between them lies wholly  in that superficies". Mr. Dodgson  wrote, and this should be borne in  mind by. all public orators of all  countrie'3 at the present day, "A plain  superficial speaker is one who anv two  points being given, will lie evenly between those points.  "Alice in Wondeiland" .appeared in  1803.   The book was originally written  -.to    amuse    one    of    the   daughters  of      the well known       Dean  Liddell. The story rapidly circulated  throughout the English speaking  world an" was translated into all the  languages of Europe. In 1S72 appeared "Through the Looking Glass", a  sequel whicli is scarcely inferior to its  predecessor.  It seems strange that a mathematician, a bachelor, should in his two  famous stories have written such  imaginative stories so well well fitted  to a muse children.  A Chicago paper makes the following comments ou the subject  of strikes and international trade:  ���������Tbe labor disputes in Great  Britain during the last year have  been disastrous to the industries  of that country. It is estimated  that the loss in wages to the engineers is about ������12.000,000. In  addition, tbe Almalgamated Society of Engineers has distiibuted  in relief to its idle members a sum  amounting to about .$3,000,000.  The loss to '.the employers is not  so easily estimated. More important to them than the immediate  losses, however, is the permanent  Injury to business. While masters and men have been fighting  business has been going to other  countries, especially to Germany.  Some orders have been placed in  the United States. For the single  month of November tho shipments of machinery- fell of more  than $1,000,000 from what they  were the previous vear. The ex-  port trade of Great Baitain's chief  rival, Germany, increased for the  same period by nearly the same  amount. Itis said, too; that business lost to Germany usually is  never regained. All lines of business suffered, of course, as a result  of the strikes. Railway traffic  was reduced in volume, shipbuilding* was injured land tradesmen  and shopkeepers found their profits greatly reduced.   But  really  one of the most serious and  irre-j _._          parable   losses was   the diversion I Jiatns' Pink Pills for Pale People.  Chapleau's Views on the Manitoba  School Question Have Not Undergone Any Change Since the Pope's  Encyclical Was Received.  Monthisal, Feb. I).���������Sir Adolphe  Cliiipleiiu. ex-lieutenant-governor of  Quebec, in an interview yesterday,  which is the same in La Presse and  Star and therefore evidently authentic, asked if in his letter to Mr. Tarte  he had favored a coalition, he said:  "Xo, the word coalition, had  always rubbed the French Canadians  the wrong way." At present ho wii3  not iu politics, he said in reply to a  question that he was no supporter of  Laurier, but had been a personal friend  of Laurier's for 110 years. He had not  changed his views on the Manitoba  schools since the iniblicatton of the  encyclical. He believed in being/oi-e.'-  terhi rcsuafifer in inoilo. He' had  not pleaded with the Pope to favor  Laurier's settlement. It was well  known that he had refused to enter  Sir Charles Tupper's cabinet.  He had done so on account of the division then in the party, and of public  opinion, which he was convinced would,  not lead his government to suecess..  He was still a Liberal-Conservative of  the La Fontaineand Cartier schor.l.  Circumstances had singularly favored Laurier up to tho   present   time as  premier, and it only depended on himself whether he shall become an  able  chief and a   benefit   to   his   country.  Speaking of the stolen   letters,   Chapleau said: "How can one refrain from  a feeling of surprise on seeing a .chief  of such experience as Tupper   gravely  discuss, at the request of the first spy���������  Mouchard���������who comes along,, a   certain distorted extract of  a  stolen letter in which he declares he has no faith.  Considering our  former  relationship,  Sir  Charles,   without    compromising  himself might have written to me and  asked me for an explanation   rl* he desired any.   As he has not done so I am  justified in believing he   had   another  object in view.     Did   he wish by any  chance to exclude me from  the ranks  of_his colleagues it was a useless effort  because I am not, there.     Had   he the  pretension of  ejecting   mo   from   the  Liberal Conservative   party,   in   that  case 1 must assure him he is not qualified to tm n me out of my   own house.  That  was   a   Bismarckian   whim,   of  which he will repent on reflection, just  as ho has recovered from the  outburst  "that followed my refusal   to * enter his  cabinet in May,  1S00.     It is in vain  for Sir Charles to   retreat   behind the  publicity given   to   these  extracts to  force me to a  denial.     1  declare once  and for all,   that'I   shall   not   discuss  with him  nor   with   others   the   contents of that document.     It  would be  to make myself  an   accomplice   in   a  criminal act. and to put a premium on  the thing.    Since'Sir Charles has such  facilities for   obtaining   access   to my  private letters, let him   publish   them  himself.  Wholesale   Prices   as They , To-Day  Stand.

One of the best known men around  Bedique aud vicinity is Mr. Alfred  Schurman, who has recently removed  to North Carleton. Mr. Schurman  was born ifi'Bedique about 70 years  ago. Some 23 years ago he was sworn  Tir--as~a~justice"���������of-th'e'-^peaceT^ancV  about 2L years ago he was appointed  clerk of the county court, in both ot  which offices he has given every satisfaction. Jlr. Schurman was also a  farmer on a large scale and like most  men engaged in that occupation led a  busy life, being compelled to attend  strictly to business, but less than a  year ago he retired from farming and  no-v lives in North Carleton. T3efore  his retirement, work such as only a  man engaged inth.itoccunatinn knows  anything about, claimed his attention.  His increasing years made the burden  heavier and the spring work of 1803  wore him completely out. This is  what he tells about it, and how he  was cured. "In the spring of 1803 the  con'stant toil and drudgery connected  with the work of farming wore me  out completely, and the break down  was the more complete because the  results were coupled with the bad  effects left, by an attack of la grippe  One of the results of Ia grippe was a  nasty cough, another was the complete loss of appetite. My spirits won*  greatly depressed and I felt that I had  lived out my (lays. I always felt cold  and consequently the stove and I were  great friends, but, the cold affected mo  more especially in my feet and caused  me great annoyance.' Added to this  complication was a serious kidney  trouble which threatened to prove the  worst enemy of all. I was unable to  do any work, had no ambition, and  less strength, and was not, a bit the  better of all the doctor's medicine X  bad taken. It was my wife who advised me at last to try Dr. Williams  Pink Pills. I bought six boxes and  began taking them. My hopes revived  because a change for the better was  soon taking place, and before they  were done I was cured. The six boxes  brought back my appetite, strength  and ambition, in short all th.it I had  lost in the way of health and strength.  The next spring however my health  again gave way and I immediately  began using Pink Pills again and I am  happy to say that they effected a complete cure and today I am well and  hearty as if I was only -10. I strongly  recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  to all who are sulFering an I was.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure Ingoing to the root of the disease. Thoy  renew and build up the blood, nnd  strengthen the nerves, thus driving  disease from the system.

We now know that tliere is no such thing  as an Klixir of Life. But we have learned  that life maybe prolonged by those who  take the right measures.   ���������''....  Anv man or woman who will'lalce care of  health and take the .right remedies .for ill  health, mav live to a ripe old age. When  a man feels out of sotU, when he-gets up  in the morning tired out after a restless  night, and goes home in the evening completely knocked out with his day's work,  without appetite or ambition, he is a sick  man. If he docs not take the right remedy  he will soon be in the grasp of consumption, nervous prostration, malaria, or some  oilier serious malady.  A man in lhis condition should at once  resort to Dr. Pierce's Golden 5Iedic.il Discovery. It is lhe best of all medicines for  hard-working men and women. It makes  the appetite keen .and heaity. It gives  sound and refreshing sleep. It tones and  strengthens the whole system. It invigorates the heart and nerves. It makes digestion perfect,_the liver active and the blood  pure. It cures e)S per cent, of all cases of -  consumption. It strengthens weak lungs,  and cures bronchitis, spitting of blood and  obstinate coughs. It is the great blood-  maker and flesh-builder.' It does not make  flabby flesh like cod liver oil, but firm,  healthy, muscular tissue. It does not make  corpulent people more corpulent. Thousands have testified to its marvelous merits.

Continuing,  the anonymous correspondent remarks:���������"Every-American knows this  to be another Jameson raid, and that  the Americans intend to keep control  of the Klondyke. The Klondykers  have already announced that the stars  nud stripes will be flying at Dawson  City by July ���������__..

New York, February a.���������The  United States is more of a factor in  the game ot international politics  which is now in progress over affairs  in the Far. East than is generally  understood. "Your country thus has  a commanding position in .the big  fight that is going on, and by shrewd  diplomacy it ought to be able to obtain  almost any concession in the Far East  that is desired." These declarations  were made to the Washington corres-  p6ndent~of~the~"H"efaId_last night by-  one of the ablest members, ot the  diplomatic corps in Washington, ' a  man whose country occupies a neutral  position in regard to the Far Eastern  question, during the course of an extended interview on the general  situation. He views it through unbiased spectacles. "The contest on  one hand is between Russia, Germany  and Franco to secure a distinct  declaration that the United States will  not concern itself about the opening  up of any more new ports by foreign  countries", and England and Japan on  the other hand will induce the United  Stales to join them in a protest against  a policy which will give anv nation or  nations superior rights in any Chinese  ports. The head and centre of the  light just at present is right here in  Washington and will become eyen  more exciting upon the arrival of the  new Russian ambassador. Until his  arrival you need not look for any new  move by Russia in the Far East." The  action of Russia in raising this legation  to an embassy and transferring this  post to Count Cassini, direct from  Chins, is, in my mind very significant.  He will come prepared to explain in  detail the exact state of affairs in  China and with instructions not only  lo sound the' United States as to its  position in the. matter but to make  advances looking to an understanding  which will give this country almost  anything that may be desired in a  commercial way m return for moral  support in favor of the schemes of  those countries which have arrayed  themselves against England aud  Japan in the Orient."  Boats leaving Vancouver for the  Yukon are cro.wded with people from  all over the world. The latest rush is  from Japan, 5,000 natives of that  country have engaged passage.  li. Mann says a part of tho plant to  be used on the Stickine road will be  sent forward immediately.

Ist, and if completed on time  will be one of the fastest pieces of  railway building ever done. Mackenzie and Mann will also operate steamers both on the Stickine river and  from Teslin to Dawson City. Aliout  1000 men will be put to work at the  start, and 'his number will be increased to 1,(XX) as soon as navigation opens.

"  CORRESPONDENCE  Timber Limit Monopolies.    .  To the Editor of tho Herald:  Revelstoke is forging ahead at such  a rate that even with our local saw  mill and the big milling plant at  Comaplix the demand can scarcely be  supplied. And now, Mr. DeCew has  installed a large plant at Arrowhead  for the purpose of supplying the various markets. The lumbering industry  in North Kootenay is an .important  one. but is beingretarded considerably  by the policy pursued; by tbe  government of grantimr, selling or  pi Helically giving awiy limits to  syndicates and speculators, thus debarring their immediate use. except at  au exhoi-hitant price, by bona, fielt-  mill men. Why a person can scarcely  get enough wooel to supply the town  with fuel without stealing it oil semi"  of these limits. To acquire 11 timber  limit now it would be necessary to go  about 100 miles up the Columbia, somewhere, north of Beaver. When these  speculators hold limits for speculation  they should l������e heavily taxed; as in  their being held it retards the progress  !~~~r~~-lh~iS~' to-\vrt~~-~_nd~~~Oliver���������points-rsnr--  rounding ns. Now that the error has  been made a provision should be enacted whereby " limit grabbeis" must  agree to make use of them within a  specified time. This "timber limit"  monoply i.s a plagued nuisance iuNorth  Koeitenay. and particularly to the  prospective lumber men, who would  put in saw mill plants in this district  if they conl 1 only set-tire the timbei*  limits at any reasonable price.
