The Trout Lake mining division lying north of the Slocan and between  the Ainsworth nnd Lardeau divisions  on the east and west respectively, embraces all that territory drained by  the rivers and streams flowing into  Trout. Lake, into the Lardo river above  Cascade creek and into the Duncan  river above the summits south of Hall  and East creeks, all the drainage of  this area being hy the Lardo. and  DuiH'im rivers into the northern end  of Kootenay lake.'  ItOAOS  AND TKAII.fi.  The hest means of approach now  open is by the government j waggon  rond from Th<~m_son's Landing nt the  upper end of tho northeast Arm of  Upper Arrow lake, running ��������� northeasterly eleven miles, where one  branch in one mile enters Trout Lake  City on the upper end of Trout lake at  the mouth of Lardeau creek, while the  other, in four miles, reaches the'new  town of Ferguson, now springing up  on the large bench below the forks or  the confluence of the north and south  branches of Lardo creek. This would  be a very good mud but for three nr  four miles 'where it pauses through  very wet ground in lhe heavy timber,  where a great inipriivement would be  effected by .slashing or cutting.down  the timber anti 'corduroying the worst  places, the large' cedar here being  especially suited to this purpose.  This road wnsheing continued foin  miles by the Lillooet, Fraser River and  Cariboo Gol Fields Co., up the creek  from Ferguson to Eight-Mile*, whence  the tr-iil"will run up to the. Silver Cup  and. Sunshine mines. A trail, seven  miles long, runs from Trout Lake City  to the Great Northern or Alpha group,  while a new trail'is being built from  the L. F. R. and C. G.

Latimer-, of Langley Prairie, B.C., writes:. "I cannot speak too  strongly nf the merits of Magic Liniment. I hud been a great sufferer from  rheumatism for many years, during  which time I hud tried_ in iny doctors  and remedies: but Magic Liniment has  cured me completely. I rubbed the  liniment on for two weeks, after which  my rheumatism entirely left me. ami  has not troubled me since. We Hnd it a  useful household remedy in our home  and would not lie without it." Price,  25 cents a tattle.  A General Favorite  Mothers who have used Magic Liniment in their households pronounce it  superior to all others for all the little  pains and arhes. It is the most popular household remedy and a medicine  chest in iUelf. Can he used internally  as well ns externally. All druggists  st>ll it.   25 cents.  <-^"W. A. Griffiths & Co.,  UKUj-ISTS.  ICEVEjViTOKE.  leading down into tho deep, narrow  valleys, which are heavily and densely  timbered, more particularly in the  Lardo basins, to an elevation of 5,000  to 5,500 feet above sea level, a condition that so far has compelled most  prospecting to be done nearer the  summits, where the rock is moro exposed, with the result that the mining  work now being done ranges in 'devil t ion from 5,000 to 8,000 feet, although  now, guided by the known trend, some  of the lends are being traced clown to  much lower elevations, where, in tht:  valleys, they should be found as well  and as strong, probably, as near the  rock-bare summits.  The under-brush, up to an elevation  of about 5,000 feet, is heavy, and little  or no feed for horses can be found,  except near and "above timber lino,  where it is generally excellent. The  country is drained by many creeks unci  strong streams, which will yet. prove  of great value for milling aiid power  purposes, although in the autumn and  wintel- months the amount of water  must necessarily be of much less volume than during the rest of tbe year.  Altogether, the surmounting of the  natural conditions that here obtain  will be in nowise greater, in the writer's  belief, thun those that have, been so  splendidly overcome in the high mountains of the Slocan, where the apparently inaccessible mines are now being  made easily accessible"- by railroads,  roads,' trails, and , the far-spanning  aerial tramways. If good mines of  good grade ore are developed, the  means for transporting ore to the. markets will be supplied, but the mines  must be first proved before others can  be expected to supply tliese means.  (Continued next issue.) '   '  the Duncan river, 20 to 25 miles by  trail from Ferguson.  From Trout Luke City hy row boats,  trails running up some. of. the creeks  on either side of the lake, are ruached.  and from the foot of the*. lake an incompletely cut out trail runs down  the Lardo river to Kootenay lake.  Trails also are. cut,out between Kootenay and Howser lake, on which is a  smalt steamer to accommodate the  many prospectors now prospecting the  upper tributaries of the Duncan, lip  which river' they travel by boat, as the  trail as yet is but poorly cleared.      ��������� ���������  Another road has been partially  completed by the above mentioned  from Rosenheim, on Upper Arrow  lake, through n comparatively low  pass to connect with the road from  Thomson's Landing, to Trout Lake  City. A small steamer may soon be  placed on Trout lake, which is eighteen  miles long. ���������  RAILROADS���������rRCMKCTE?)   OR POSSIRLK.  This district, while very mountainous, by reason of ths deep valleys and  low passes, will be comparatively easy  to penetrate with railroads, such as by  a line from Upper Arrow Lake via  Trout Like and Lardo river to Kootenay lake whence, it is claimed, no  serious difficulties are to be met with  in ascending the valley of the Duncan  river should development warrant the  construction of a line into this region.  Already a preliminary survey has  been made from Arrow lake to Trout  lake and thence up Lardo creek to  Gainer creek, and charters are extant  for roads up Duiican'and Lardo rivers.  TOPOGRAPHY.  This district is very mountainous,  especially that part drained by the  Duncaniriver, and thedivided summits  of highly-tilted sedimentary rocks  tower from 7.000 to probably 11.000  feet in height, harboring in the high  basins and on the divides glaciers and  perpetual snow, affording scenic effects  of great grandeur and beauty probably unsurpassed anywhere in the province.   The mountain   sides arc steep,  AN OPEN LETTER   w  Mr.   W.-" White  and  the   Slocan   City  News "'   ���������-  In reference to the article appearing  in the News of March 5th in which Mr.  JV._White'sivjeivs iiii the political ojrt-[  look of the province were supposedly  expressed. I submit the following  explanation for the enlightenment of  my esteemed Revelstoke contemporaries for whom I cannot help but have  the kindliest feelings after their complimentary expressions as to the  paper's reliability and good standing  among the newspaper fraternity and  reading public: generally. I was absent  at the time Mr. White was in the city  and the News representative* gained  his information lrom the overzenlous-  ness of some of Mr. Wnite's friends,  and knowing that Mr. White arid lure  the best of personal friends he gave  publicati6ri-~tb_wbat~liir"-then and-still  considers reliable information, but as  I said before it came from, his over-  zealous admirers. However, if Mr.  White, should oppose Mr. Kellie for  the legislature it is the opinion of your  humble servant that Mr. Kellie would  be badly snowed under and would  soon be wondering "where he's at."  Trusting that the above explanation  will be satisfactory, I am, yours truly.  1). R. You.vo.  Mineral Production of Canada.  The past year showed the biggest in  crease iu the total value of the mineral products of the Dominion of any  single year on record. lt jumped  from $22,600,825 in 1890 to $2S.7SI),1":-J  in-1887, a sum which i.s well on to  treble the amount used only a decade  ago. The greatest increase shown is  in gold, which rose fi-om $2,810,200 in  1800 to $0,100,000 iu 1807. Of this increase Yukon is credited with two and  one-half millions and the Trail creek  district with one million. British Columbia increased the total output of  silver from $2,147,500 to $3,322,005; ot  lead from $271,384 to $1,308,8.'"3. and of  copper from $1,021,118 to $1,501,(100.  Iu silver Canada, thanks to the development of Kootenay, produced in  1807 about live times as many ounces  of silver bullion, as-she was producing ounces of silver ore in 18S5.  Death of Mrs. Steed.  This   morning   shortly   after  eight  POLICE COURT  o'clock Mrs. Steed passed away almost  imperceptibly, after a severe and painful illness, which confined her to her  bed since the beginning of the year.  Her sufferings which were borne with  the. greatest patience and fortitude,  have called forth the greatest sympathy of the community, which now  condoles with tlio bereaved husband.  Only one child is left of the marriage.  The funeral, which will he conducted  by Rev. P. D. Muir, will take place  direct from the house to the cemetery  at 2 p. m. on Friday.  liefore .1. I).

MARCH 10,  1S0S.  111$ 1II  ARE NOW BEING DRAFTED FOR  SERVICE  FQUi. BADLY CHARRED BODIES  HOW THE GLOBE REVOL VES  Recent issues of the Toronto  Globe contain alluring pictures of  the fabulous fertility of the  Canadian North West, and of  farming operations in different  districts. A couple of years ago,  the editorial columns of the" same  paper were mainly devoted to the  denunciation of the-land regulations formulated by the government, the baneful railroad policy  and the'disastrous effects of the  National Policy, which it was  claimed had prevented the  western farmer from' making a  living.  Today, however, the Globe's  party is on top, tbe (J. P. H. is  behind McKenzie and Mann who  are behind the Globe and everything- looks rosy. The land regulations aie now all right���������though  still the same, the railroad facilities  are altogether improved���������though  practicall}" the same, and there is  no objection to tho ''^rushing"  duties which���������with the exception  of barbed wire and binder twine���������  are identically the same.  The Globe's sudden conversion is  another striking illustration otthe  effect of the point of view on the  situation.  Many communications relative  to the state of things existingou  the Crow's Nest Railway, and of  the blissful ignorance in -which the  commissioners have been kept by  the contractors who toted them  round have been received by Thk  Herald. The Herald has refrained from any reflections on the  action of the commissioners until  such time as their report is made  public, but correspondents mny  rest assured that when the proper  ' time comes The Herald will be in  a position to tell what it knows of  the investigation aud the manner  in which it was conducted.

Many of the laborers on  the Crow's Nest will be surprised  and pleased to know that they  had the honor of dining every day  with such a great man as Mr.  Pedley, whose decision on the  grub problem has just been given.

It need hardly bo said that it requires  nerves of steel, as woll as wonderful skill,  to shoot down such a, declivity and' to  take the mighty leap from the platform.  It imi'-c lie remembered that in a leap of  sixty feet, tho sheer fall is about thirty  feet. -It. is in tho-taking of this leap that,  the most exciting part of ths performance  is exhibited, and en which the iippluii**e  of tlio spectators is concentrated. The  greater tho leap tho more applause and  honor for the ski-ior.- Tho record leap,  until recently, was S7 feet, whicli was  made by a during youth tit ono of tha  Ilobncnkollen meetings. This record was  beaten, in a manner that drovo the spectators wild with enthusiasm, by tho queen  of ski-iers, Mi<-s l-'redaKii.-igcii.abruiietlc  beauty of Clirlsllariia, who has well won  her royal title. This lithe limbed and  athletic beauty has distanced all competitors in tho thrilling slide down tho hill,  and in tho leap has leffovory one far.behind. Tlio women havo'never been able  to como anywhere near her record leap,  and the best jump to tho credit of a man  is so far short of hers as to make it almost hopeless to beat; her.  Usually the sexes aro divided in tho  competitions, but this year a change was  made in tho rules of the game, by which  ir, was arranged for men find women to  take the slide in competition. Tho result  has shown tho wisdom of tho move.  Miss Freda Knagei). when making her  second great jump, came down tho hillside with the speed anil grace of a bird  on tho wing, darted from the platform  far in advance of the nearest sfci-icr, anil,  to tho astonishment of tho people of  Christiania, almost; every mnn. woman  and child of whom had assembled to wit-  no-s the sport. Freda sailed out into  -pic.*, and landed gracefully ou her feet,  with a successful bound of 103J������ feet to  her credit, Which figure K,inds to-day as  th^ record jump of .'ki-ing in Christiania.  After her great feat, Mi-s Kuagcn became the heroine of Christiania. By no  other means could sho have won so much  honor.

Acquaintanceship  between our readers and ^advertisers is begun at the veir  first time your advertisement appears.. Tho invitation may  not always be accepted at once, but good will has been  established.  With what a feeling of ease and serenity one enters  the store or hotel that is advertised; he is welcome ; he has  been invited to come.    With what'confidence you inquire for  an advertised article: the proprietor himself'believes in it,   '  wants you to try it, is interested iri your getting ' it. ' This  very good .will, this appreciation of courtesy, this satisfaction    "  in being pleasantly asked, has been the foundation of many a '_ .  successful business. * -;���������  Newspaper   advertising   is. .something   uiore   than _,  spending money in the newspapers..

Portraits:  at Cost  for the Next  Ten Days Only  NOTE AND COMMENT  Mr. Kellie's proposed Truck Act is  one which, if passed, will have a wide  reaching effect in this district, Briefly  it will render all wages payable in  actual money. If they fire paid partly  in goods, the workman will have recourse against the employer to recover  the amount not paid in cash,  and the employer will have no  recourse against the workman  for lhe goods. And the Act includes  not only employers, but their agents.  The only legal deductions from wages  will be for medicine or medical attendance, and fuel, tools or fodder necessary for the workman's occupation  and victuals prepared and consumed  under the employer's roof. Iti fact  the act, if passed, will remove any  possibility of any cinch by an employer over Ihe workman's .expendituie of  liis wages. The Hekald is entirely'in  record with the spirit of this enactment. Tliere is no doubt, that workmen employed in remote places, mining or lumbering, may be convenien-  ced, by being able to buy what they  require from a store established by  their employer, but they should be  perfectly free to bin- or not, just as  they like. It is not unfrequently the  case However nt present that they  either have to buy there or lose their  job, while their chance in the ease of a  disputed account is small indeed. This  Act. will prevent the possibility of any  suchiiccountsat .-ill.arid put an end tna  good deal of. petty tyranny, which is  none tliu less galling .because it is  petty.  The speaker' has ruled Mr. Kellie's  last batch of mare's eggs olf color.  The lot consisted of seven idiotic questions on the Revelstoke river liank  work. The speaker ruled the whole  lot out of order, "asstaling filets, liial-  teis of argument, inferences and imputations." Most of the questions put  by Mr. Kellie contain inferences and  imputatations," of a miserable picayune stamp, if Mr. Speaker only knew  what was at the bottom of them. Now  Mr. Kellie has polished the lot up. removed the too palpable traces of ���������'inferences and imputations" .and is pestering the attention of the House with  them again. ' '  the paper do something for the town,  because he was too outspoken to suit  the little hole in the corner faction  that ran this, town to suit, their own  ends and helped as much as anything  else to retard its development for so  long. From that ont the Kevelstoke  press was noted throughout (he west  for its dullness and feebleness. The  Mail sat on this place like an incubus  of stupidity and indolence. It says it  was a mazed when the Heuai.d project, of a guide was announced. No  doubt it was. It i.s quite certain nothing of the sort, would ever have occurred to the Mail to take in hand in a  thousand years. All it can do is to  -.uicer nnd belittle. Compared with its  position, the attitude of a yellow dog  yapping behind a team on the street  is full of dignity ami intelligence. Rut  the ginger colored cur cannot stop the  team, nor will the yelping of the Mai  stop any enterprise taken in hand by  this office.  The stupidity, which endeavors to  decry an enterprise taken in hand  with the enthusiastic approval and cooperation of everybody in the district,  except half a dozen hopeless soreheads,  would be worthy of remark in any  other paper but the Mail, but the canting hypocrisy with which it tries to  make capital ont of the request for a  subscription to the enterprise from  the provincial government, requires a  few remarks. Attentive readers of  the Public Accounts return for ISO"  will notice an item on page 17(1 under  the head of Miscellaneous, " Kootenay  -Mail Subscription   to   Mail,   2500  copies feir distribution, $125.00. It  doubtless struck them as curious that  the provincial government or anybody  else should find themselves- in need of  2500 copies of the Kootenay Mail for  distribution. This feeling of surprise  is quite natural. It must be remembered however that beforo the -bright,  and glorionsstar of Kelliewaned in the  politic.-tlsky.there was a kind of a Grit  pull working, which enabled the  Mail, while ostensibly opposing t.he  Turner' government to get any  advertising or other bits of fat that  were going lrom the provincial administration.

The more one examines the report  of the Minister of Mines for 1897, the  greater is tlu*. impression left on thu  mind of the very extensive nature of  the "black eye" dealt by it to North  Kootenay. In fact wilh the exception  of a report "of a hurried .trip of three  weeks to the Lardeau in very wet and  bail weather, and a short account of  lhe mismanagement, which led to the  closing of the Lanark mine. North  Kootenay receives no not ice in it at  all. This report is intended to present,  an annual survey of mining progress  throughout the province. Surely the.  extensive hydt-aulicking operations  contemplated on French Creek, the  new mineral lielcls discovered List  summer at Grandview ami Lakeview  Mountains, the silver-gold ore iiearirig  leads of Fish Creek, the Lade Bros.'  discovery of rich gold-benring ore on  Gainer creek, and the big strike of  arsenical iron leads on Ping-ton creek  were worthy of some notice.

Among ihem a gross  blunder has lieen perpttraled and a  gross injustice done to the district of  which Revelstoke is tbe centre. In  future it would be well for them to  have a distinct understanding that in  districts uuvisited by the provincial  mineralogist during the year1, tin-gold  commissioner should be respon-ilile  that that section was represented in  the report of the season, dnrintc which  hi* was drawing the salary for doing  the work of t!u> oflice.

And they got it.  A completer rake off is not on record.  Fur when'the Public Accounts return  says "copies" of the Mail, tliis is'on'ly  a figure of speech by which the part, is  put for the whole. What the government really received'forits $123.1)0 was  2500 hand bills coiitftiiiinga description  of Albert Canyon and other parts of  the district, which had previously appeared in the columns of the Mail.  Seeing that the jnatter was already  set for the paper, the actual work cm  tbe prod ue tion ofthis hand bill would  occupy one limn about, half a day. The  paper used in it would be worth about  S1.25. allowimr tint office a fair proiil.  Therefore we find that tbe .Mail..this  virtuous exponent of the new political  gospel of honesty according to Bostock,  this smug preacher of political consistency, this inspired evangelist of the  ethics of government, loading off by  the aid of its friends a job costing at  TlTe"oulsKle about five clollars on to the  government for one hundred and  twenty five dollars. And it has the  brazen impudence to put out, its sneaking insinuations against the Hkiiald  for a-sking the government to assist in  _an enterprise, of the greatest benefit  to tbe country, and that in a way in  which the government will receive the  full worth' of its money. ��������� The combined stupidity, hvpocrisyand impudence  of Oie Mail's attack has managed to  break iti own record for' these qualities, which was before, unsurpassed.
