This group, or the highest mine, in  the Province, elevation 8,200 feet, lies  on the summit between Cariboo and  Hall creeks, and thence extends southeast down the gully below the glaciers,  across the head of Hall Creek Gulch to  the summit separating this gulch from  that one occupied by the,Abbot I. group  and drained hy a stream intti Healy  Creek, Hall and Cariboo Creeks, flowing into Duncan "Lake, or in the other  direction.  The Sclkirks here are very grand���������  the lofty, eraggy'peak's towering above  gigantic glacier-), "while the steep  mountain sides are scoured in places  by avalanches or snow-slides, yet near  these summits have.been made discoveries of silver-gjilena, deposits, especially near or at the line of contact of  schists and slates, with the" great tip-  tilted bund of marbleized limestone or  "Lime Dyke," that stands up prominently for many miles with towering,  precipitous, naked sides and castellated crests.  The claims, the Lardo, Duncan and  Ella, 'each 1,500 by 1,500 feet, are owned hy Messrs. W. G.' Johnson, W. S.  Rugb, C. T. Porter, et al.  On the. Duncan claim- on the top of  the ridge, at.nn elevation of over 8,000  feet, a small knob "or 'boss of slate or  schists, rises from the'perpetual snow  and ice. A_ zig-zag trail leads from  the tents (elevation, 0,500 "feet) up to  these glaciers, and_ then' across (bis  solid mass to the ^tunnel, which here  enters and passes along a smooth wall  of white quartz of a large and strong  ledge, the outcrop. of which urns up  and over this knoll.'       *."' ' ~-  This out-crop consists of a wide,  mineralized zone 'of bands of quartz,  galena and .*irregular bands of slate  nearly coincident in- strike and dip  with that of the country rock. Strike,  north 50 deg. west; dip,-south 40 deg.  west 70 deg. - ���������"_,  _. -  There is nnidi" barren -.quartz, but  there is. also, mu_lf^i;?o'jfy,ing ii .good  perc-ffntKft-i.uf-gnleniij-wltlr goorl.silvei'  values -that, under- the. proper circimi-,  stances, may prove 'good' concentrating ore. This zone is 30 to 40 feet wide  of mixed rock matter and ore with  hands of clean galena. 3 inches to 2 or  3 feet wide.    " it "  The tunnel follows along a smooth  quartz wall with a nearly continuous  streak, 2 to 20 inches wide, of clean,  finegrained galena shows in the roof,  100 feet to" the face, and ttvo crosscuts  to the left, 8 feet long, are still in  qunitz carrying a very good percentage of galena, ix little iron pyrites and  zinc blende and tetrahedrite, hence  the_\vidth_of ~this_oi'e_body_in_thc__tnn_.  nel was not disclosed. Since; time of  visit a winze has heen sunk 80 feet  showing, it is stated, about the same  conditions.  The method of working this property nnd the transport of'the ore  down to si concentrator will present  some unique features, as the workings  and aerial tramway would have to be  located so as to he safe from snow-  slides, but much more work is necessary before such arc considered, to  determine the extent und value of this  interesting vein.  This ore will, in every probability,  have to be exported via Hall creek  and the Duncan river, as the trail  from Ferguson, admit 21 miles long, is  a hard' one and climbs "over two divides. There is little or no timber  upon these mountains except down in  the valleys, and fires have burned  over a lot of ground.  The owners think there are indications of this ledge helow- the lower  limits of the glaciers, but no tests have  been mode to verify.  Francis Jewell.���������This claim and the  Queen Mary, Princess Marie and Lucille K.. owned by C. T. Porter, W. S.  Rugh, et al, lie as a northeast extension of the Wntrner group, and in a  30 foot tunnel on this claim has been  found a vein of quartz, galena (silver-  bearing) and grey copper. In the  gnlcb just below the Wagner claims,  and on the Queen May and Princess  Marie, extends for about 500 feet, a  strong vein of banded, coarsely crystalline quartz, 10 to 15 feet wide, very  slightly mineralized with,pyrites and  galena. Practically no work has been  done on this exposure, nor have any  values been found, but this may yet  prove to be important and significant.  ��������� Other claims.���������Laura J. and Ward  lie along lhe steep face of the slate  cliffs parallel to the Wagner vein, and  a narrow vein of silver hearing galena  can he traced for a considerable distance, assessmeut  work  on which is  said to have given very favourable  results.  Dealh-on-the-Trail, Little Tommy,  Bell Flower, etc., owned by the Dun-  can-Lardo Mining Co., were recently  located on stringers of galena ir: the  (���������lutes underlying the limestone of lhe  Lime Dyke. Assessment work was  being done.  The Abbott, King William and  Marion lie southeast of the Francis  Jewell, in a large basin, drained by a  branch of Healy creek. On the Abbott  claim there is said to he u .small vein  of aiiout 20 inches wide of galena high  up on the steep side of the Lime Dyke,  to tap whicli a tunnel hns been driven  (now in about 300 feet) until ttvo men  were killed in a snow slide, since when  no work has been done.  BANNOCKBURN   GROUP.  This property lies up iu the high  basin east of the "Lime Dyke" to the  south of and about 1,000 feet above  Hall Creek. Three galena veins are  reported, but only a few shallow surface cuts have been made to develop.  This galena is said to carry medium  silver values, one assay returning 35  ozs. silver, about. $5 in gold per ton,  and 70% lead.  CARIBOO   CREEK.  Prospectors were busy during the  past season up this creek, which lies  westerly from Hall Creek, and important finds were reported on claims  staked off on both sides of the "Lime  Dyke."  .Columbia Lodge No. 34, I.

The galleries of  Congress were crowded. Senators  and representatives were anxious and  agitated; even the Diplomatic Corps  were in a ferment, awaiting the  message from the President of the  United States, to the Congress of the  American people, that might mean  war; when, with the excitement at the  very highest, the .word passed that  there would lie no message today. Its  suddenness stunned thffe public, which  heard the news in distorted forms,  and amazed the veteran members of  Congress. Ultimately it became  known that not only would there be  no message today, but no message  this week, and that it was at least a  possibility that the message, written  and approved might never go to Congress .it all. The first reason for the  delay was that the Administration received advices" from General Lee at  Hav.iiifi, indicating that all Americans  could not he taken off the Island to  day, and would he in grave peril if the  message preceded their departure.  The second reason, and perhaps  equally potent with the 'other, slowly  drifted- into public, comprehension  late in the day, chiefly through the  medium of the published'Associated  Press despatches from Madrid; for  extreme reticence was maintained on  the subject by the few in Washington  who knew the facts, and even Cabinet  officers were unadvised on the subject.  This important news was that tbe  Spanish Government, after what plainly had been a most exciting time iu  the Spanish circles of Madrid, had decided to re-open the case���������closed, so  far us this-Government was concerned, hy the refusal of Spain to make  satisfactory response to the representations made by the United .States  last week���������and, in order to avert impending war, had decided tomakecon-  c-eeioH_-h-_-lofoi-*-- refuscti.v-r:-'-^-." -*���������*'-  STILL   DELAYED  Spain Shows Signs of Granting-  United States Demands   '������������������"���������������������������  POWERS URGE FOR PEACE::  Prof. Carlyle's Rdport.  With this issue, the Herald's re*,  print of Prof. Carlyle's report on the  Lardeau comes to an end. It was reprinted from the report of the Minister  of Mines in order to give those interested in the district a chance of seeing  what was said hy the Provincial Min-  erologist on its resources 'and prospects. This report was the result of a  hurried visit of three weeks in a very  wet and bad weather. t That some of  the statements in it are derived from  mere hearsay and are glaringly inaccurate the Hkrald proposes now that  it has finished printing the report, to  set itself to point out.  A Correction.  To the Editor ol the Herald.  In your issue of April 2nd, you state  that' Mr. G. I. Clink is the owner of the  Trout Lake saw inilK Now, I" do not  know where you got your information  but'your item is incorrect. Prior to  August 6th, '07, he had an interest in  this mill, but since then he had neither  interest in it, nor connection with it.  Mr. G. I.

Services tomorrow iu St. Peter's  church will be at the usual hours.  Tho church has been prettily decorated  today for tomorrow's festival with  flowers and texts. Rev. F. A. Ford  will officiate for the first time since  his illness.  A Mason and Risch piano, specially  built in dark oak for the Hotel Revelstoke, has been u shipped from the  factory in Toronto, after being on exhibition for a week in the ware rooms  of the Mason and Risch Company.  The Herald begs to acknowledge  with thanks a box of fine lake trout  from Mr. Martin of the Lakeview  Hotel, Sicamous. The fishing in the  Shuswap Lake is excellent just now,  eighteen to twenty a day being .an  average catch. The Lakeview Hotel  is it most comfortable place to put up  at and with the beautiful scenery of  tho Shuswap and Mara lakes just  putting on its spring dress, no pleas-  anter spot exists in the province for a  few days holiday.  The B. C. Chamber of Mines.  The Herald has received a copy of  the rules and regulations of the B. C.  Chamber of Mines. A permanent salaried secretary is to be appointed to  give hia entire time towards compiling  information regarding the mineral  resources of the province and otherwise carrying out the work of the  chamber, whose chief objects are to  promote the mining industry of the  province in every possible way and  circulate information regarding it.  The chamber should receive the hearty  cooperation and support of everyone  interested in mining in British Columbia. As soon as' its organization u,  completed, sub committees will lie  appointed in each district throughout  the proviuce.

H. Darby, one of  of the Iron Farm group,  today. The group consists of four  claims���������Iron' Farm No. 1 and No. 2,  Buzz, and North Wave. It was located  last September. On the Iron Fartn a  tunnel has heen driven on the lead for  40 feet, and the result of the work is  about 4 carloads of concentrating ore  carrying galena on the dump, running  from 35 to 75 oz. in silver. There is  also a lot of solid ore running as high  as 000 oz. sacked up. The pay streak is  "in and out," and has shewn up as"  wide as 10 inches. There is another  tunnel on the North Wave, in alx>ut  20 feet, with fine shewings. Four distinct ledges run across the Iron Farm,  one of white quartz carrying copper  and galena. Another leilge is arsenical  iron. Another shews copper. Mr.  D.irby is of the opinion that further  prospecting would discover considerably more indications of mineral  wealth in the vicinity of their propel ty.  Our Roads.  Gold Commissioner Sibbald has  written to the provincial government  authorities" asking leave to expend  $700 on immediate work on the roads  in town. It cannot be denied that  they need it badly. But more than  this whatever is done, to be effective  should he done at once, while the mud  is still on the-roads. If tbe work is  delayed until'they are dry lhe gravel ���������  will not wor-k itself into the surfaced  but remain on top and become a regular nuisance, as it always has when  this work bas been done during dry  weather in this place before. If it is  done at once, the gravel will sink into.  the mud and form a hard'surface, '  which will stand the traffic for.a long -  time. This is not theory but the experience of a whole lot of money  wasted in this town in the past,  by doing this work at tho wronjc  time. It is to be hoped that the government will accede to the gold com-  missioner's re_o_nnfeud_-ion. .���������].'.__������-_Wv-.������  Revelstoke   Herald  *.  -   .Published in Interests ot  Revelstoke.

There is a noticeable increase in  the migration to Canada from the  Stntes. It is suggested that this  influx of patriotic citizens i.s not  because Canada is tho best field  for investmeut/Lut for fear they  might bu called on to light against  the Spaniards. It is only fair to  say. however, that-this does not  apply to tbe numoroiis farmers  from the American west who are  just now coming into Alberta.

If   wu   have  a  rotten piece of legislation  on our  statutes.it>is- the  old insolvency  act.   .Strong aud numerous representations have been made to the  Administration, and   when   after  long .delay  a   sensible   bill    was  introduced at tho present session  people hoped the old system was  as good as .wiped out.'  Bothered,  no doubt, with the   inconvenient  consequences of previous fatuous  mistakes, and with two Miuisters  knocked    out    of   the  ring,- the  Government"   has  -weakly   abandoned another of its offspring and  the business .of tbe  country will  suffer until another session comes  around.  -While  in  England "tbe   writer  met   several    manufacturers    of  Birmingham,   Sheffield  and Glasgow. - ��������� Some   of  them  had  done  business  in  Canada;   others  had  bad " their   attention', drawn   to  -Canadian' possibilities   since  the  Diamond Jubilee, which gave thn  Dominion such a magnificent advertisement.      They     were     all  noxious to do  business in  Canada  and'they were all in a position to  lay down the right kind of goods  at right prices.   But they all had  -the-same story���������Canada's  rotten  ���������bankruptcy law.   Many of them  knew to their sorrow the meaning  of  "preferred  claims,"  and   had  sustained     such     heavy     losses  through  fraudulent bankruptcies  ���������allowed by law���������that they had  either withdrawn  from   business  here   altogether   or   refused    to  ship goods unless cash accompanied  the order.  This is a decidedly unsatisfactory  state of affairs and the Govern-  -^Hient���������hasysbown- an -amazing- incompetence by neglecting to deal  with it. - We should be glad to  believe that the telegraph ha3  wrongly informed us. ���������,  The W. C. T. U. ladies, according  to a contemporary, objected to the  breaking of a bottle of wine at the  naming of the U. S. warship  Kentncky^and a bottle of water  was used.

The  Kingston Whig declares that  Frontenac county was lost to the  party in the late provincial contest through the action of the  Laurier government in dispensing  jobs to the wrong men. Which  leads one to ask what is the object  of government ?  A crusade has been commenced  in' Kansas against chewing gum.  One of the enthusiasts claims that  many a man. womau and child  could trace their lirst.crime to the  influence of gum. It might be  thus, but whoever heard of a  woman going home while under  the influence ot gum'and killing  her mother-in-law because she  was left handed and bad a gum  boil on her foot?  Wetaskiwin   Editor's  Opinions on  Important Public Matters.  Wo are informed Unit the department of tho Interior has decided to  have fi number of illuminated cards  printed with the words "Loveone fin-  other," distributed among tho neighbors of the various settlements in  Northern Alberta. What the depait-  partment means by taking this step,  hanged if wc know, lt seem to , us to  be wholly uncalled for.  It is, we should  imagine,   a lack of  knowledge of tho world, of the peoplo  in it, and of human nature in general,  that makes some preachers neutralise  the effect of their own labors  by an  assumption   of  austerity.      Manners  and morais as set forth from the pulpit ot the village church are   so strict  that we would h-i/ve to lead lives as  did the Puritans in the time of Elizabeth,   when,   as history   informs   us,  thev onlv succeeded in   exciting derision bv iheir-'fanatical opposition   to  traditions and   human  constitutions.  Why the ultraslrict mode   of life, involving the   laying   aside   of carthly  pleasures and all   that goes to   make  Fife tolerable, should always be found  in wee little obscure villages, beats us.  We may not all be sports, but certainly none of us are ascetics.   "For which  the Lord be thunkit."    Of course, all  country ministers are not alike.   Some  are liberal minded, widely read, broad  in their views as  becomes   la  tin  ilu  sieclc, and 'ovinl in their dispositions.  Such men have by; their adaptability  of manner find common sense, much  more influence for good than have the  hard,     ignorant.      austere,    unread,  untravelled,   hell-fire shooters we so  often have to put up with.      In  Wetaskiwin we have been singularly lor-  tunate in our ministers.     They  have  not been obstrusive or   aggressive in  their   ministrations, and" have   been  well liked by the   people.     But only  two Sundays ago we.were grieved and  surprised tb learn that one of ou- local  ministers,  ouo.  too,  whom  everyone  respects, and whose name is popularly  associated   with the  rose, charged his  congregation when they went to their  h~oTucs~to"lo~ok"over~th~eir"book"~shelvesr  take oft all the novels and cast them to  the flumes.   To  revert to our classics  again, "Omnia  bona bonis." Perhaps  he had forgotten this feature.  Was this gentleman fatuous enough  to suppose that it break of this kind  tvoulabe,taken literally.-is a fulmiuation  of the church, and that, the congregation would huiten hack home as fast  their legs would carry thtm. seize  Thackerv'sV.'initv Fair, Dickens'David  Copperfi'elil. Bhickinnre's Lorna Doone.  Hardie's "Tess of the d' Urbei'villes.'i  and the novels of Charlotte Bronte,  Ueoi-gu Eliot, liarrie, Kipling and  Haggard, Hing open the stove door  and chuck 'em all in". Who ever heard  of such preposterous nonsense outside  of Wetii^kitvin 1 Ono could not very  well blame the preacher if lie had  reference to "Dare devil Dick, or the  Iliglitvavnianof the bounding ocean,"  or "Slmightei-house Mike, lhe Avenger of cocoa nut ally," for thev are but  stupid trifles and most eligible candidates for thn lircy furnace, but it is  scarcely probably that the members  of this gentleman"*; congregation have  any such literature upon their shelves.  In any event tve would infinitely prefer" "Slaughter house Mike" to "Fox's  hook of martvis."  The Two Men Had Been Quarrelling,  When the Actor Shot His Opponent Through the Head���������The Shooting Claimed to have been Done in Self  Defence���������Surrenders   to  the Police  London, Ont., April 2.���������A shocking  tragedv occurred in this city last night  at the Music Hall theatre, when W. D.  Emerson, who took the part -of tho  leading villain in the Wesley Stock  Company, shot and instantly killed  .las. Tutlle of Branllord, the business  manager of the company.  The audience gathered in the theatre  were wondering what kept the curtain from going up. At a quarter to  nine the curtain was still down and  they gave signs of great impatience.  Just then a pistol shot was heard and  an actor rushed out tind shouted for a  doctor.  Detectives were on the spot and go-,  ing behind the cut tain found the body  of Tutlle lying behind tho drop quite  dead, the bullet having entered his  left eye  THE HOT BED  Every farmer should have one.  Many farmers have old sash lying  around that would make good glass  for a hot bed. Sometimes old storm  sash can be obtained cheaply and they  answer well. Having selected your  sash, make a frame to suit it, Any  onehandy with tools can make agood  frame.  Sometime before you are ready to  use the hot bed,make up a pile of good  stable manure (largely horse manure)  largo enough to cover the entire  bottom of the intended hot bed- 18  inches deep. Let it heat a few days  then turn it over and let it heat another week. Now make up a bed of  this manure IS inches deep and a foot  larger ail round than the size of your  frame; water and tramp it down solid.  Place the frame upon it and bank up  around the manure and frame with  more manure. On top of the manure  in the frame put in five inches of fine  garden mould, no matter if it is frozen  it will soon thaw out. If vou can't  got that, go to the woods and get some  nico leaf mould. Put on the glass  and allow the hot bed to work off its  excessive heat.

WAR    NtWS  The Liberal Ottawa Free Press  is of the opinion that the recent  vigorous demonstration in caucus  over the patronage question is  "calculated to convey the idea that  the Liberal party was elected not  to govern the country on  principles higher, better and purer  than those which prevailed, to the  great cost of the nation, under the  Tory regime, but merely to gratify  personal ends." Which of course  is not the case.   Oh dear no!  If the dove of universal peace  which a western evangelist says  1 he sees hovering in the air is,really  at that altitude it is going to drop  its olive branch and become very  tired before it comes down.

Britain towards the States  that is gratfying to the thinking mnn  of either country and goes" to further  demonstrate that, which every patriotic Anglo-Saxon knows, .but which  for political purposes able" men frequently pretend not to know, that  when occasion shall arise, if it ever  does, for United States to assist Great  Britain against any combination  of European powers that attempts  to crush her. that the Americans will  respond to the man, and vica, versa.  The Munroe doctrine, various treaties  and other laws prevent the present  consummation of this natural alliance  which would decide ns to thn future  rulers of the tvoilil. But there is an  undercurrent, an unwritten law in the  hearts of the people of both nations  that every intelligent Anglo Saxon be  he Britisher or Yankee recognises,  that natural law which makes the  mother protect its offspring and the  offspring protect the parent that i.s  stronger than any unnatural law  which jinvo inspired politician- can  formulate,  Dr. Moody, medical superintendent  of the Winnipeg hospital, has resigned  nnd will be siiccccdcu by Dr. Douglas.

PORTUGUESE PIRATE  HOW    BARTHOLEMY    captured   A  HUGE SPANISH  MERCHANTMAN.  VARIOUS NOTES.  His Fiist Attack Failed���������The Little Pirate  Then Lay Within Short Range,and With  Itinci tho Spanish Force Was Reduced  and Finally Conquered.  A series of sketches by Frank R.  Stockton on "Tho Buccanoors of Our  Const" is ono of tho features of St.  Nicholas. Mr. Stockton tells of the adventures of Bartholemy Portuguez,  who, with a small crew iu a small vessel, captured a huge Spanish merchantman iu the Caribbean sen. Mr. Stockton  Kiiys: Tho littlo pirate sniled boldly toward tho big Spiniinrd, uud tho latter  vessel, uttorly astonished ut tho nudac-  ity of this At tuck���������for the pirates' flag  was flying���������lay to, head to tho wind,  and waited, the gunners Etanding hy  their cannon. When the pirates had  come noar ouough to see nud understand  tho si'zo and power of tho vessel they  had thought.of attackiug, they did not,  ns might havo been expected, put about  nnd tail away tit the best of their vessel's speed, but they kept straight on  thoir course, as if they wore about to  full upon n great, unwieldy merchantman manned by common sailors.  Porcoiving tho foolhardiness of the  littlo vosscl, the Spanish commander  determined to givo it a lesson whioh  .would touch its oaptaiu to understand  :better tho_ relative power of great vessels aud little ones, so as soon as the  pirates' vessel was near enough he or-  deied a broadside fired upon it. The  Spanish ship hud a great many peoplo  on board. It had a crew of 70 men, and  besides t_eso there were somo passengers and regular marines, and, knowing that tho captain had determined to  firo upon tho approaching vessel everybody had gathered ou deck to see the  littlo pirate ship go down.  But the ten great cannon balls which  wero shot out nt Bartholemy's littlo  craft all niis?ed their aim, aud beforo tho  guns could bo reloaded or the great ship  bo got"around so as.to deliver, her other  broadside the pirate vessel was alongside of her. Bartholemy had flred uono  of his cauuou. Such guns wero useless  against so huge a foe.-What ho wns aft-  cr was a hand to hand combat on the  deck of the Spanish ship.  Tho piratos wei'o all ready for hot  work. They had thrown aside their  coats and shirts, as if each of them were  going into a prizefight, and with "their  cutlasses in their hands and thoir pistols and knives iu .their belts they  scrambled liko monkeys up tha sides of  tho grout ship. But Spaniards are bravo  meu and good fighter."���������there wero moro  than twico as many of thorn as thero  were of the pirates���������and it was not  long beforo the latter found out that  tliey could not capture that vessel by  boarding it. So ovor the sido they tuln-  bled as fast as they could go, leaving  some of their uunibor dead,and wouuded  behind them. They jumped into their  owu vessel, and then they put off to a  short distauco to take breath and get  ready for a'different kind of fight. The  triumphant Spaniards now prepared to  get rid of this boatload of half naked  wild beasts, which they .could easily do  if they took bettor aim with their can-  uon thau they had dbno before.  But to their amazement they soou  found that they could do nothing with  tho guus, nor were they able to work  their ship so us to get it into position  for effectual shots. Bartholemy aud his  men laid aside their cutlasses and their  pistols nnd took up muskets, with which  they were well provided. Their vessel  lay within very short range of the Span-  ish-ship.-and-wheuever a-man could-be  eccu through, tho' portholes or Bhowed  himself iu the rigging or anywhere elso  wheroit was necessary to go iu order  to work tho ship ho made himself a target for tho good aim of tho pirates. The  pirato' vessel could move about as it  pleased, for it required but a fow meu  to uiauugo it, and so it- kept out of  the way of the Spanish guns, and its  best ninrksmeu, crouching close to the  deck, fired aud' iirod whenever a Spanish head was to be seen.  For five long hours this unequal contest was kept up. It might have reminded ono of a man with a slender rod  and a long, delicate lino who had  hooked a big salmon. The man could  not pull in the salmon, but, ou tho other  hand, tho salmon could not hurt tho  man, aud iu the course of timo the big  fish would be tired out aud the" man  would get out his lauding net nud scoop  him iu.* . _ [  Now, Bartholemy thought lie could  scoop iu tho Spanish vessel. ' So many  of her men had been shot that the two  crews would bo more nearly equal. So  be boldly ran his vessel alongside the  big ship and again boarded her. Then  thero was another great "Sght on the  decks. The Spaniards had ceased to he  triumphant, but they had become desperate; aud iu the furious .combat ten  of -the pirates were killed aud four  wounded. But the Spauiards fared  worse than that More than half of the  men who hid not beeu shot by tho pirates went down- before their cutlasses  and pistols, and it was not long before  Bartholemy had captured the great  Spanish ship.  It was a fearful and a costly victory  he had gained. A great part of his owu  men were lying dead or helpless on tha  deck, end of the Spaniards only 40 were  left alive, and these, it appears from  the accounts, must have been nearly all  wounded or disabled.

When through there he will return to  the former claims and in all probability work upon them all summer.  The Salvation Army has already l*c-  come one ot the institutions ot the  town, and their nightly meetings are  well Attended. Their services' are interesting to all who attend, to those  even who do not'altogether-approve  iif them, and there' is no doubt that  they will do good in some quarters  that the churches find it difficult tn  reach. A Sunday'school is to be started at 11 o'clock a touinrrtiw forenoon in  connection with the Army work. All  the meetings ore held .in Peterson's  hall, which has been leased hy the S.

The quarterly general meeting of  the Board of Trade was held on Thursday night, with the president, Mr. A.  K. B. Hearn in the chair, The following new members were elected : Mrs.  A. E. Phipps. J. Doyle, Curtis, R. Tapping and G. E. Grogan.  The first subject discussed was the  grant for the wagon road from town  to the head of the canyon, which tvas  not inserted iu the estimates. It was  the general opinion that uo doubt the  wagon road is provided for in the supplementary estimates, but still it was  thought, best to instruct the secretary  to write to Premier Turner and make  sure on the point.  Mr. John Abrahamson then pointed  out that there was no grant set down  for the ruining recorder's salary at  Tront Lake and the discussion on the  point brought up another feature,  which is that there is a report that the  Lardeau and Trout L-ike districts are  to form part of the division of the new  gold commissioner at Duncan Lake.  A "strong resolution was in consequence  drawn up noticing the fact thnt nothing had been set clown for the salary  of the Trout, Ijiike recorder, and protesting against the Trout Lake and  Lfiiileiiu divisions'heing cut off from  Revel-toke. As Mr. Brewster, who  was present, was going to leave for  Vancouver after the meeting, he was  appointed a repiesentative of the  board to lay the matter. before the  Minister of Mines at Victoria.  It was arranged to hold a public  meeting un Tuesday evening to discuss the question of the public park  which the Dominipn government has  expressed itself as willing to grant  this pi nee.  The report of the combined Mining  and Freight committees on the advantages   to   be   gained   hy  the  Downie  Creeli ~Rn il way company-iii milking  Revelstoke their point of junction  with the C,  P. R. was then reiul. The  report was a very able and interesting  one. It pointed out that Revelstoke  was in the first place a competing  point, having easy access to the transcontinental roads in the States and  therefore one at which better tei ins  for- freight rates could he made with  the C. P. R. than at Albeit Canyon.  Set'oiidly that the river would furnish  a readily .-uio-ssilili: waterway for the  carriage of stores and supplies for the  construction of the proposed line, in  the event of the company sUirtiug  from Revelstoke. Thirdly that the  whole route thrr ugh which the railway would pass from Revelstoke to  the Waverley group i.s in.-i richly mi uer-  ali'/eil country, in which several hundred locations have been nuule  and a number of properties have  already changed hands at good figures,  in spite of the small amount of development done on theni; that last year  the traffic over the route employed 75  pack horses contiiiuously.hesiile.-i boats,  and several trips of the Lytton and  that consequently this is the route hy  which the company most naturally  anticipate the greatest amount of  traffic. The report tvas or der ed to be  transmitted to Mr. .1. D. Graham-  The board then adjourned.  A WORD WITH MR. TARTE  The Minister of Public Works shows  up very badly in his controversy with  Mr. Turner' on thi* protection of the  river bank here. He quite obviously  lent himself to tho trick, which Mr.  Bostock and the Bostock clique iu  Revelstoke intended to play on the  Provincial government,. It will be  ri'inembered that Mr. Bostock grew  apathetic on the matter oven before  Mr. Tarte and stilted that he-.'did not  see what mere could he done,- The  idea of course was that the Dominion  government should refuse to assist in  the work, on the plea that, their previous oiler hnd been rejected, that thus  any idea of going on with it this' year  would have to be abandoned, and the  blame would rest on Mr. Turner's  government. That Mr. Turner would  adopt the course of starting the work  anyhow never occurred to these too  clever schemers. Air. Tarte has prostituted his oflice as a Dominion minister to assist this small' and dirty  piece of political trickery, and now  finds that his bungling advisers have  simply assisted Mr. Turner to score a  big point.  The last letter of the correspondence  published by the Mail does not help  him out any. In the first, place how  the Mail got hold of it "God knows,  for 1 don't," to use a classic Kellieism.  It must have been by some backstairs  piece of dirty work either at Ottawa  or- Victoria. Seconiilyiit' throws no--  reiil light ou the situation, no new  justification of the position, whicli Mr.  Tarte so unadvisedly adopted, and  from which to judge by his telegram  of Feb. 10th. he is himself anxious to  recede. "Dominion government engineer," he says, "now, at Revelstoke.  Your government should contribute  to the cost of the work." Thirdly the  sneaking imputation that Mr. Turner  deliberately suppressed this letter is  worthy of the Mail. If wecouldsay anything worse than that we would. The  Bostock organ calculates tbat the  letter being dated Feb. 23rd should  have reached Victoria from Ottawa  on Feb. 28th or 20th. Why not Feb.  30th. :31st or 32nd. The atmosphere  of the const did not apparently tend to  clarify the editorial intellect. As  there was not, except on , the Mail's  calendar any  20th   of   February, this  year, aiid as there'-'was  as  everybody  will remember considerable delay in  the trains at'that particular period,  there is nothing very remarkable in  the fact that the letter in question did  not get into a batch of correspondence,  dated March 4th.  But all this is beside the point,which  is that the work is being done by the  Provincial government, and that the  Dominion is not assisting. Mr. Tarte  may write letter's and the Mail squeeze  out columns of blethering comment  on them, till they are both black in the  face. But tbey cannot alter this fact,  which is the only one in which' tbe  .people of Revelstoke take any particu-  lar interest in the  whole  Of course  the.  Mail  and  Forward I  Upward!

But  political mis-takes are better cured I>y  rectifieation than apology.
