Concentration of  Workshops Here  Will   Increase   Our  Population   to  at Least  2,500 The  Supply Point for Lardeau, Trout Lake,  Big Bend and Illecillewaet,  Revelstoke, although rather quiet  in business circles tit present, is on the  verge of .1 very busy porinil.. Already  there tire nctunl slopping mines, nnd 11  number of men throughout the Lardeau anil Tront Lake, country visiting  the different camps, with a, view to  purchasing properties feir their companies-, who represent a large amount  of capital. A few more puu-hases of  good properties, by reli.tlilo companies  will mean thorough prospecting, the,  discovery .of m'tiny new leads known  to exist in that district .ind the turning of prospects inlo shipping mines,  possibly this fall and not later than  next year.- Tho building of railways,  the opening np.of mines, ore shipments, and the employment of a large  n 11 nil lev of nieii at gootl wages will he  Ihe. backbone of,the prosperous period  now in stoic for ns. As the Lai dean  nnd Trout L.ike country' is "developed  so too will the volume of business for  Revelstoke inert hunt1" increase.   -  The smith country"cilies are after  the business and seem je'iilous of Rev-  olstnl.o's splendid position to culer to  this favored p ition of Ninth Kootenay, nnel it-will stand ~,thu'business  nieii of this place1 in hand to woik together in harmony, for fear, through  theirown shoi tsightedness. the trade  from the Liii_le.ni niiel Trout Lake  mining camps should be diverted from  Us 11 ut urn 1 supply point.  . The Tllecillewaet camp to the east of  us has pi-oven rich beyond dispute, and  the supply point for the entire district  even as far cast as Donald is T.evc'1-  stoke. and it, is bcingcarcfully fostered  by our merchant*".

The Big Benel is  not only 1 ich in placer diggings, hut  rich froe-millingqimrtz has been found  in nearly every section of the Bend,  the high assays of which are alreatly  well known. "It is only necessary to  mention the excelleut finds niaile on  Keystone Mountain, Carnes Creek, on  which the Carnes Creek Co. nro now  operating with splendid results.

Besides this they have,  already built u magnificent hotel, a  supply store, a freight shed, and a  new office for the Dominion Ex pi ess  Co. The deninnil has been the ������o!e  reason for this improvement, llevelstoke is not only a mining town, but  is now and will be increasingly so in  the future a railway point of considerable importance in the; C.P. R. system  anil a distributing centre for the business of the iich mining disti ids included in .the section popularly known  as North Kootenay.  The few facts outlined in the above,  should give lo Revelstoke, its founders  anel builders tresh encouragement,  and the Herat.!) believes (hat at no  distant date Revelstoke will be known  as the first lity between Winnipeg  aud Vancouver.'

The premises are large,  new, well lighted and in a good location, and we anticipate for Mr. Curtis  a fair share of Kocuenay's patronage.  Is It So Mr. Cotton ?  The Ottawa, coi respondent of (he  Albprta Plnindealer says: The result  of the local elections in British Columbia has made it unanimous that, for  thejfirst time since confederation, the  entile country from ocean lo ocean is  in the hands of the Liberal government.

Thousands Broke in Klondike  J. A. Smith returned from the  coast cities this morning where he has  been keeping cases on the future  movements of the opposition leaders.  Sir. Sinilh is of the opinion that, the  few Klondikets who elo con.e down  with gold dust are seldom hoard 'of,  and the lascinaling stories iio\v being  circulated in the* coast papers- are  purely imaginary, 'Thousands aie  dead broke in Klondike 'and have no  means of returning, else, the story  would he different. The coast peoplo  Iheinselves look upon the liiinni as a  huge joke, being pcrpetiatetl upon the  unsuspecting reporter bv persons who  happened to havo enough eif the nt'ces-  sarv lucre to return on.  Work cn The Silver Bell.  The Silver Bell property is situated  on the. south fork of the Lai clean river,  tt few miles above thu to\vnsi<e of-I-Vr-  guson, in the Duncan-Lircteiu country  and is owned by M. H.-Dobie and H.

Copper Getting' Scarce  During the past three years no shares  ot tu.y kinel of enterprise Isnve shown  the remarkable and steady inciease in  values that the copper shares have.

The Rolhchild's and' other big  capitalists of Europe have agents  exploring the entire western continent  for copper pioperties anil a large  number of English bankers anel operators have their Aiiierie-an correspondents looking np copper mines or  large blocks of stocks in such proper-  lies f)r ' investment pin poses. The  ownership of all the Amei icaii copper  mine owners control the world's  market for e-opper. The demaml for  the ini'tal is greater Ihnn thu supply,  the total visible slock on hand was  never so low as now. and would be  exhausted entirely iu two or three  months if the supply was stopped in"  tiny way. As things are at present,  it looks as though the world needed  copper more than gold. It is predicted that copper will sell foi 13 cents  before January 1, 1������IH>. It i.s being  produced ut n total co-t of less than  one half that figure.���������ltosslar.il Miner.  The Visit of Bishop Dart  On Sunday last the Bishop of Kew  Westminster preached the sermon al  both morning and evening prayer.  In lhe morning he selected the life of  David for his subject showing how in  spite of his sin, "he was described in  tlie Sciiptnresas "the man after God's  own heart." In the; evening, selecting  as his text, the words, "by hope i.e  are saved," he spoke nf thu Chiistian  grace of "Hope," ilibtinguisbing it  from that assurance of wli'u h some  boast, bnt which i.s eoiltr.irv In the  facts of life and the levcaled will of  God bolb in natuie and the Bible1. Of  one thing we can be sine that the will  of God i.s onr salvation,.but to the end  we must doubt our own strength  under temptation. Only we must  always hope, reckoning temptation  and infirmities nveic-iiine in the past  as pledges of God's geioel will towards  us as even unto the end. Both sermons were profoundly interesting and  weie listened to with the greate'.st  attention. The bishop left on Mon-  dav for East ICootet-.ay. He will pay  Revelstoke another visit nt the enel of  next month when I.e. will eonsecr.ite  St. Peter's chuich anil "iiliiiiiiister the  sacramental rile of confirmation. He  intends then to pioceetl to the' old  country anil spend some time theie,"  ple.teliiig the cuii=e of his vast diocese  to Uie mollier thurclv.  REVELSTOKE JHE TERMINUS  Of the Crow's Nest Railway���������The  C. P. R. Surveyor Now at Arrowhead.  A. E. Doucet. nf Monlie.-il, left  yestei-day morning for AuowIumcI lo  conniieuie a survey feu- a i-.iili o.icl  from that point through the Lardeau  to Kootenay Lake. It. is believed thai  this line is intended to become it portion of t ho Crow's Ne-st Railway system and the connecting link between  it and lbe main line.- Thus it will be  seen that Revelstoke will become tbe  western Icrmiiius of the Crow's Xe.st  Railway.  Gold Bug Claim Settled  At Victoria on Saturday Mr. Justice  Drake gave judgment in ihe action of  lhe ynnshine, Jjlil., vs. Cuiiniiigh.ini  and McGnire and- the rioss-action.  The facts v.eio fully set out in the  judgment, and the defendants, Cunningham anti Mc-Guiie, were entitled  to suce eed lo the extent that the  Gold Hug fraction be liiniti'd to the  ground outside the land occupie-d by  the Sunshine C'oinp.inv's buileling*,  and the lecoiel altered accordingly",  also an injunction to restrain tlie  deposit of waste upon the land- of the  Gold Bug.

Cunningham and McGnire were entitled  lo the costs of the action of the Sunshine against themselves iiicliiiling  the trial, one set of costs to be: sec of  tig.i inst the other.  The Kilkenny Cats  Tic who excuses himself accuse*  himself and our morning con"tenipo>-  aty continues to elo that to perfection.  Tt gives warning that erne of the government organs" will publish a. sensational story of difference between the'  nieinli. .-s of the opposition over tin-  leadership and goes on to state th. t  the story was started by n disgruntled  member of the defunct Citizens'  Ticket. In so far as lhe fir-*t .statement is concerned there'is not the  -lightest necessity to pul bsh anything  sensational coin-orning the split in the  opposition rinks over the leaeletsliin  because it i.s a plain "matter of fact  which everybody at" all conveisanl  with tlie' ciroumstanccs'knows.- Mr.  Cotton himself is going about looking  ns if ho could,, torn the most delicious  of fresh cream -into sunt" iuilk.^>vhile  his .-inui'xalionist colleague Yin the  ticket bobs up serenely anel quie-tly  ti'lls his bosom friends not,to won-y  about him���������he holds the "trump caul  anil cannot help to win. The Semi-  lites and the Cottonites have no particular linrnmglove for the Mnrtinites  ami Bostockvites, while the Ilileyiti-s  and the Gregeu-yites swear that the  Islnnel must not give way to the  Mainland even if it means a nipt inc.  The smaller fry have bet ome completely disgusteel at tbe bickering that  is going on anel have come to the  conclusion tliat a l-.eni*-o dividedagaitist  itself sn h-.pulei.-~ly cannot stand. All  this is patent. Theie is no object in  being sensational about it. More  _th.in_one____individi!.-il^p_^stmji_^"_t__tj-)je_  recent pow-wow held in this' citv h.i _  expiessed the view thai a worse lot of  scrappcis never gatlieieil in caucus  and the sentiment of the rank and  file is that it were betti".- fur tn support an honorable manlike; Mr. Turner  than some' of tho-e who are bcinc  pushed forward for the Opposition  leaelcrship. The feeling seems to be  moie p.irticuluilv intense atrainst a  member of the Mouse of Commons,  who evidently wishes to run things his  own way and to make himself'solid  with" the Oltawn administration in  view of favots to come. As far as the  disgruntled member eif lhe Citizen**'  Ticket is concerned he might have a  n story to tell, but he has not .started  iu yet to onr knowl"dge. Perhaps  the "coal duikers" might ii*-.**i-*t him in  giving to the world as nice a little  yam as ever was spun, involving  ceiliiiu parties who arc foolishly rushing on to certain l uin. Bnt of this  more anon. Meiiittime there is nothing Io publish except, the fact that the  opposition i.s split up into factions and  lhat no member nf it can trust the  other. Hence these tears on lho part  of our contemporary.���������Vancouver  World.

A reader sends Tm~ Hi-RALi. a  Welch paper with a copy bf a  telegram which is calculated to  senel the average operator's hair  grey. Ifc refers to the village in  Anglesey wliich boasts the longest  name iu the United Kingdom. The  telegram, which i-~ dated March 2,  reads: "Going to Llanfairpwll-  gungwllgogerhwllclydiligogogocli;  shall be home by -i :���������)("." On the  postmaster being asked it ihe  Fuelling was. correct he found ifc  wa������ not. The full name, properly  spelt,is ihi-;-.

It will  be   remembered  he made a start last  February   from   Port    Wrangle    for  Dawson" City, bnt found  the charges  tor hauling "freight so excessive, that  he decided" to  go no flintier.    Along  with   others   he   took     the    steamer  Lewis which  landed  them on Cotton  island.   They   disembarked at night,  and in the dark, and  being unable te  procure tent poles had to sleep in the  open.    Unfortunately it was snowing.  Nelson  has  a  bad account to give of  the hardships of the journey.    They  proceeded up the river, dragging their  sleigh0    containing     500   pounds   of  freight,   themselves.     Some had elog  teams and some horses, but  his outfit,  ���������was most unfortunate,   the rive-r was  in  bad shape for sleigh* and in many  places the ice was  broken.   Accidents  were   of  frequent   occurrence,    some  parties losing theii whole outfits, one  losing his oxen  nnd   the whole of his  provisions.     After going on  another  50 miles be had to camp on the river  bank    and   wait    for   the  returning  steamer due on .lune Ist.as they found  it impossible to proceed lurthcr.   He  speiks well of the mounted police for  the straight way they use the people.  The   inspector   is,   he says,   building  substantial barracks at the  boiindaiv,  and   will  soon  have them completed.  Nelson returned from Glenora to Fort  Wrangel, a distance of )T,() miles, in an  small boat, anel diel the journey  in  17  hours,    fie **ays ���������_ groat,   number ai e  returning Uie"<~an~e way.   There w.i -  a general  attempt lo sell out Ihe outfits as soon as it  became  known   that  Mackenzie to Mann  had failed to put  the road  through,  and the sacrilices  had   been   very gieat and the <Ii. ap-  appoinement   had   decided   _     great  many to return.

The big  .attendance nt tho horso laces nt l~cnni_~C  nnd Aiiueiliict would i-cem to bear out this  conclusion.

Tho" commonest 'ami   practically iini-  versal'primitivo.inctl-.od of making lire is  .by the friction ot two pieces of wood. Tho  ' -University of   Pennsylvania   io fortunato  in ]i-j-*scssing ono of tho largosc and most  perfect collections ot tho prehistoric  tools  lor tlii' purpose in existoncc.  In this collection, obtained from tho pre-Colmiibian  _ clilT   elwclliners   of   buncos    Canon,   in  ' _Uiinte/.uma County, Col., there is a round  -"stick   of   hard   wood   sonic oighfc or   ten  inches in length   which   w.13   rotated between tlie hands with it.*- lower end pressed against a fra'gincut of sofc wood.  .The  ,borings   iilling  tho   littl-i   groovo on tho  i-idu of the lower slick or hoarth   smoultl*  mud and burned through tho heat of frio-  i.O'i, to bo caught at last   in   this bimdlo  of    soft,    shredded   cedar   bark,    which,  whirled in   tho   air, gavo   tho Mjuglifc-for  ilaiiiu.  Mr. Cu**hi~ig, wlio cullo.l ll-.c.o sticks,  drill-., healths and tinder from lhc ina**3  of iniscollaiicous clill -dweller mate-rial  which originally camo to ns, tells i_o  that tlio drill- aro made chielly of tho  hard mountain mahogany. Tlio root of  iho cotton wood was selected for tho  hearth. To this simple .drill, whirled  with the palms, a-moehauical dovie-o was  added, a bow and a'cord.  This give-- the cntiro story cf firomtik-  jug in e_afly~~~A"_)cric'ii n_TdTig""pobple__~"ot'"  about tho highest culture of those living  within its boundaries. Mr. Gushing tolls  mo than tho uso of tho bow was cxeop-  1 tional and was indicative of tho high  point, ot culture reached by tho ancient  peoplo who inhabited tho cliffs.  , Another prehistoric American fire drill  was found with a muniiny by Dr. Carl  I.nmholU in a cave in Chihuahua, in  Mexico. Another form of drill, known as  ,. tho pinup drill, used by the Puoblo In*  J dlnns lor perforating turquoises, shells,  etc., has been employed for making Uro  by the Iroquois Indians of Canada and  Sow .York State. It was used by tho  Onoudngas in making the now Iiro at  tho Whito Dog feast in 1SS8. Tliero is  not suflicient evidence of its primitive uso  - in lireiiitikiiig In America, and for tho  only other mechanical aid to tho *.lniple  Jiaiiel iiro drill we must go to tho Eskimo.  'Thoy use a bow drill with an upper bearing "that in held between tho tooth, cnabl*  "ing tho operator to work tho apparatus  with ouo hand, leaving the other Lfreo to  apply tho tinder.

Our reports are to the effect  f hat milling properties are changing  hands with a view to greater development ami th.it an era of prosperity  seems to he opening up for quart'/,  mining in all sections. Thoteinporaiy  stagnation caused by the win has  almost wholly disappeared and the  liberal inflow of money promises  abundant returns in the near future.  As heretofore staled in those columns, the drift of investment is  largely in tho direction of developing  promising prospects into mineis anel  is therefore along healthy lines that  iironii.se much for the industry. Thore  is ai r.i I in the sale of big mines, but.  smaller capitalists propose to assume  tlieir proportion of the risk in making  big mines out of small ones. A better  condition for the industry could not  be prescribed.  RECEIVED AN OVATION  Miners    at   Dawson   Present   Captain  Constantine With Nuggets  Capt.
