Kevelstoke Station, Revelstoke and  Trout Lake Citr, B.C.  O. B. Hume & Co!  CONTEM PLATING  AN ELECTION  The opinion prevails that the Government, while not ns yet committed  to a general election, is seriously considering such an appeal to the people.  Several circumstances point to the  possibility of a contest, before the  next session of parliament. One of  these i.s tlie fact Unit we have had  exceptionally good ciops. The  aliiindanl yield and the large exports  happily make trade better, and it is  assumed that the electorate will attribute the blessings from above to the  Ottawa people. .Another is the Quebec Conference. Here tho Government does nol, know as yet what will  happen. But if it should extract a  treaty it calculates that it will he safe  to go lo the country declaring that it  has performed the excellent task of  healing differences between tho two  countries. On the other hand, if it  should fail, it will attribute the failure  uro to a fervent desire to uphold  British interests on this continent,  and to saciifice nothing. ���������  Again, the taxation has been iiiiti_.it-  ally heavy dtiring'lbelpa.t year, with  tlie result that if.the' added debt be  omitted from the figuring there is a  surplus of revenue over expenditure.  These throe conditions constitute tlie  influences which nre thought -to be  directly favorable to the Government  with the electorate. But the.Ministers, or at least'some of their advises,  think'that an election in the not distant future may win a five years' term  before some inconvenient issues make  themselves too prominent. The prohibition plebiscite will be held, on the  20lh inst;* It'is expbcted'tha't the vole  will declare for the principle. Sovei -  al expedients have already been suggested for the avoidanco of action. The  Minister of Justice bus given nu opinion which sends the question back to  the "Local Lpgislatire. while Mr.  Archambaiilt, ' Attorney-General nf  Quebec, has declared that his province  will observe no prohibitory ln.iv. With  the question hung up. as the Government proposes to hang it up, the  temperance voters will realize that  the niinisfers have practised  an impn-  we place them on sale at the  phenominally low price of 90  cents.

A   RICH   PROPOSITION  A MINERAL GROUP THAT WILL  MAKE THE LARDEAU  TOWSER UNDER DEVELOPMENT  sition upon theni, nnil it is supposed  that it will be good play to get through  an election before the victims of this  costly deceit are as angry as they  are expected to be. The Sifton policy  in the Yukon, im perfectly understood  as yet, will bu too wi-11 appreciated a  few months hence, when fuller details  arrive. A contest in advance-of the  complete facts may save something.  So, also, the less tho people know or  Mr. Tartu's exploits the smaller the  danger to the Government. As regards the liirifl' the Government ih  between ils free traders and its protectionist Liberals. A speedy appeal  might enable it to cast the protectionist Libarals aside and to follow at an  earlier period than otherwise would  be possible the Cartwright policy.  Again, we have not yet Inul a full  year of the public accounts under the  new regime, and an election with  these particulars missing might curtail discussion of an. awkward  character.  The chief purpose of an early contest would therefore be to take  advantage of one set'of circumstances,  and to cover up conditions which  grow as they ripen. By the friends of  clean government, government on  definite principles, by all opponents  of the new system of "deals" which  enrich favored politicians at the public  expense and demoralize political life,  rendering it a stampede for contracts  and subsidies not earned and for  offices not reijuired, the situation  should he considered with a view to  preparation. Be ready for a sudden  call, that the country may be spared  a five-year period of Yukon?, Crow's  Nests, DrummoD-S, Tartes, Globes,  andSiftons.��������� Mail Empire.  Rich Ore From the Silver Cup���������Plenty  of Timber and Water���������Transportation  Problem--SiIver Cup Ore Nets The  Owner Over $100 Per Ton���������A Sixty-  Five Foot Tunnel on the Towser���������  A Valuable Property���������Ferguson is the  Base of Supply.  About 23 miles from Thomson's  Landing, approached by a well built  wagon road 21 miles in length and a  horse trail forjthe remaining two miles,  is a group of mineral claims which will  in the near future advertise the riches  of the Lardeau country in genernl and  that portion in particular lying beyond  the town of Ferguson and watered hy  the north and south forks of the Lardeau creek or ."river. The property  referred to is on the south fork nnd  consists of three claims, Silyer Cup,  Sunshine and Towser. The firsl and  second of- these nre owned and operated by the Sunshine Ltd., a c'ouipany  subsidiary to the Lillooet, Fraser River  and Cariboo Gold Fields, Ltd. The  Towser is the property of Messrs. D.  Ferguson and J. Knowles, two of the  pioneers of the- town of Ferguson and  the surrounding district. The ore in  all three claims consists of high grade  galena containing copper and gold in  large qiiantites. Smelter returns have  given over SIS in gold to the ton' from  Silver Cup ore. And assays from the  ore gave as high as $60 in gold. Woik  has been done on each of the claims,  but it is the Silver Cup which has  exposed the amazing wealth of the  s-ronp. This, mine has heen worked  foi" thc,last two-yell's .and during the  winter of 1887-9S upwards of 700 tons  of rich ore has been lakenout. About  GOO tons of this ore has been shipped  to smelters, yielding an average of  $100 per ton after all hauling, smelting  and general expenses were paid. Tho  Sunshine has not been worked to such  an extent. A 00 foot tunnel and two  crosscuts have lieen driven, and a consider ible quantity of ore tukon out,  similar in character to thatof the Cup.  The Silver Cup results have demonstrated beyond doubt-n very important fact, viz: thai as depth is reached  the ore has increased in both volume  -1111 d-val 11 e; -" - -------   . .������������������- ���������-.=.___^  THE COLUMBIA'S VICTIMS  Friends and  Relatives   Being   Informed  of the Sad News.  Sam Bnuleii whose th.tlh, by drowning at Nineti'Hii-.Milc Ripple up the  Columbia river llasl Tuesday, was reported in our last, issue, has 11 Inother,  Ed. Boiiten in North Dakota, and  Registrar Paxton is now coiniiiuni-  cating with the father.Ed ward Hon ten  of Baie-dos-Pere. Qui. The deceased  was well known here.  Registrar P.ixton, who has been  communicating with friends uf who  t.he pulilic here knew as Billy Doyle,  who was drowned in the Canyon last  week, finds that his trim name was  Fred. Buckler. His sister, Mrs. H. P.  Goldsmith, lives at Annapolis, Nova  Scotia. He has also nn uncle and aunt  in Winnipeg, the uncle. Wm. Dunn. ,  being on lhe city police force. His  parents are both dead.  .Toe Rulleston's parents at Lane.  Leicester, Eng., have not been heard  from as yet.  The. unknown -'Swede's name was  Newman, a young man well known  in the Trout Lake district.  , None nf the bndifs of the unfortunate men whom the Columbia river  has claimed during the. past week "have  been discovered, nor are they likely  to be.'  The body of a Rohson-Penticton  bridge carpenter who was drowned  some weeks ago was picked up at  Northport. a few days ago. Identification papers, were found upon him,  and also throe 520 Canadian bills.  The Towser not being owned by a  highly capitalized company has not  received the amount of development  to which its position and prospects  entitle it. It is in close proximity to  Ihe Cup and on the same lead, and  every indication goes to shew that  each claim is bur. a portion of one and  the.same, rich mineral deposit. Tlie  development consists of a 80 foot tunnel, another of 02 feet is under way,  30 feet of which is completed. The  surface shewings when stripped have  hei'ii excellent and assayed very high.  A striking resemblance to the features  of the Silver Gup is noticeable as work  on the Towser progresses. The only  I'Oiicliision onu can arrive at is that  the Towser will yield 11 wealth of mineral equal to if not surpassing cither  of ils companion claims, and should  prove a profitable speculation to the  .shareholder- of a well organized, energetic and practical mining company.  The property is well, situated for  working, timber Hiid water is plentiful,  it is but two miles frou. a good wagon  road, and within six miles is the rising  lown of Ferguson. At present ore has  to bo hauled the whole distance of' 23  miles to Thomson's Landing on the  north  east arm  of Arrow Lakes.  C.P.R. surveyors have been over this  ground quite recently���������are in fact at  work at time of writing���������a railway i.s  projected tO|Connctt Revelstoke with  the Crow's Ne.st Pass road. This railway will como within about ten miles  of the property, thus shortening: the  hauling by more than one half. It is  hoped, and endeavors are being made,  to induce the Company to build a spur  into Ferguson as no doubt it will be as  much to the interests of the Company  as to claim holders. This would so  reduce the cost of transportation as to  make mining operations in the locality  a certain financial success.  As a base of supplies and for mining  operations the town of Ferguson oilers  peculiar facilities. Itis situated on a  high and dry level tract and from its  unequalled position will command the  traffic of the whole country beyond.  A PROMISING^ PROPERTY  Development Work on the .Trilby. Group  - Exposes an Excellent Body of Ore.  W. 'Hnlloway cime-in on Wednesday from Sable Creek, a tributary of  Pool Creek',' about ten miles from  Thomsons Lauding, where he has been  doing development work on the Trilby  group, which consists of four-claims,  viz: the Silver Crown, Old Sol. Trilby  and the Sundown. The development  work now under way consists of an  open cross-cut 10 feet long .and IS feet  deep on the Old Sol and Silver Crown.,  right on the line between tho two.  About-fiteen tons of ore was extracted  of which ten tons was first class shipping ore. At the point where the.  cross-rut was started there was a  shewing of three and a half feet, of  quartz containing a large amount of  high-grade galena, the lead having  widened ont to nine feet at the end of  the cross-cut. The hanging wall was  _cu._ii-_a_dep_h_nf_aliQut_six_fe_t_._i n d_th<_.  foot wall at a depth of eighteen feet.  Onthe hanging wall ihero lies twelve  inches of pure galena, and on the foot-  wall a shewing of from 17 to 20 inches  of very nearly solid galena ore which  assays 20 oz. in silver. St-50 in gold  and 70 per cent. The property is" on  the divide between Sable and Isaac  Creeks, in Trilby Basin, and is reached by pack trail from the Landing.  Within tho.. last ten days four new  locations have been recorded on the  Trilby lead.

INTERESTING CEREMONY  SATURDAY,   SEPTEMBER  21,   1898.  After the Battle  Montreal Gazette: Spain's position may well be a source of anxiety  to her statesmen. Shorn of the last  remnant of a heritage wliich she  claimed as a gift of the church itself,  she has reached a point of national  humiliation the depth of which may  be judged by the height from whicli  she has descended." There is, indeed,  a consolation which to a proud people gives a certain moral support.  To decline a challenge was ever to  the Spaniard the act of a craven, even  when the challenger hatl every advantage. -'Desa fiamento me ha  hecho" (he has challenged me), is, in  tho ancient ballad justification for  any  indiscretion  of accepted  combat,  True to old traditions tlie' Sagasta  government did not wait till the deft  of the United States had been formally delivered before they announced  their readiness to appeal to the sword  and await the issue. They knew, as  all the -world knew, that they had  oeen caugnt unprepared ; tliat  wealth, population, armed strength,  ships, were on the side of tlie foe ;  that he was fresh and sound from  long prosperity and peace, whereas  in the two main points of conflict,their  forces were exhausted from persistent warfare, waged with disadvantage  in which alien sympathy and help to  the rebels were a conspicuous element.  Destiny, indeed, could hardly  have treated them worse in fixing an  hour for a life and death struggle. Had  the voice of wordly wisdom been  heard and heeded, they would have  temporized, instead of rushing with  such rashness into a war that could,  they felt, have but one issue. So contagious is boldness that for a time  the onlookers fancied the Spaniards  must have some unsuspected reserve  of strength, and that, even if their  enemy proved the eventual victors,  their triumph would .be dearly purchased by preceding sanguinary discomfiture, and it was on the sea some  of the prophets looked for this preliminary��������� punishment��������� of���������t.he-"aggres--  sors. Never were forecasts rendered  so absurd by the event. Just one comfort was left to Hispania mourning  for her sons.

Spain may havo lost the art of winning victories but the heart thai upheld her in her combats with llie  trained champions of three continents still sends the blood through her  veinB. It may not have kept pace with  the march of progress, then Spaniards  still  cultvate    one    ambition,   which.  when allied with patri  otism,        is        not        without        its  beauty.

"To win honors and not to play the  coward"���������so long as a nation (and  it was the same nation that produced  Cervantes) is true to such a motto,  it cannot have entirely lost self-respect. In one sense, indeed, it.may lie  that Spain has been a gainer by the  war, for whether they fouyht them  by land or sea, the soldiers and sailors  of the United States have confessed  that ln the Spaniards they had valiant foes, worthy of the finest warlike  Eteel.

But Spain cannot live long on a  reputation for warlike prowess. All  the valor of captain and seamen did  not save either Pacific or Atlantic  fleet from terrible destruction. Impetuous and stubborn alor is a grand  thing to contemplate. It shields defeat from the taunts that sting. But  when it yields nothing but sacrifice  of life and waste of means our, admiration is shaded by doubt. We still  admire, it is true. But at the same  time we feel a certain scorn for the  ineptitudes���������whatever or wherever  they be���������that can turn brave men to  no better use.

From  The Calgary  Herald  On Sunday, September  ISth, a very  ��������� unusual   and   unique  Masonic  ceremony was performed iu the cemetery  here,  viz.,  tho unveiling of a monument to the memory of the late Bro.  Samuel   Livingstone,  one  of  the  old  timers  of  Calgary,  and   at  one  time  a prominent member ot the Masonic  fraternity.    The  brethren   assembled  In the Masonic Hall, Stephen Avenue,  shortly after 2 o'clock and proceeded,  clothed  in  their Masonic regalia,  in  procession as far as the Queens hotel,  whero a number of conoyanccs were  awaiting  them,  and  from  that point  drove to,tho entrance of tho cemetery  whero  forming    in procession  again,  headed by the tyler.

James  Reilly, one of the oldest Masons in  Calgary, in very impressive and beautifully chosen language gave to the  memory   of  the   departed   brother.  The  speaker   said:  Worshipful  Master  and  brethren,  ladles and gentlemen:  It is a mark of the highest civilization   to  pay  tributes  of  respect  to  the  worthy  dead.   We  are  come  together today bo mark with this beautiful  monument  the  resting place  of  "a"���������mau^wnoso��������� remarkame��������� inarvrair-  ality  made a deep  and  pleasant  im-  presiou  on  the community where he  lived and  acted. Our brother Livingstone  was  a  native   of  the  Emerald  Isle, born in tho beautiful  couuty of  Wicklow.   near   the   Vale   or   Avoca,  one   of   the  most   beautiful   spot-,  in  Europe,  famous  in  story  and    song.  At the age ot IG. in the morning of  life, a youth ot remarkable beauty of  feature   and   figure,   he   crossed     tlie  ocean   just   about   51   years   ago   and  lauded   in   New   lork.     whence    ne  found  his  way   to  sonic  relatives  in  Wisconsin abuul the close uf tho forties.    The discovery of gold  in  California  fired   him  with   the  desire   of  wealth and happiness, and ho joined  the early argonauts to the California  mines, where he engaged in what was  to  him   the  most  attractive  of  vocations,  that  of prospector  nnd  miner.  Here   ho   remained   for   some   years  and   became   well   skilled   ln   all   ine  agencies- of  placer   mining.    With   a  few companions he drifted north and  cast  in  search  of other fields of adventure.    Towards   the   close   ot   trie  autumn of IS6-1 we trace him in company with a few companions, miners  wearied   with   disappointment,   entering a ravine near tho summit of the  Rocky   Mountains   in   Central     Montana.   Tho   winter   was   coming,   the  surroundings    an     uninhabited   wild,  tl.eir   larder  about   exhausted,   when  one   of   the   party   exclaimed:    "This  is  the  last chance  gulch."   The  last  chance proved a lucky one, gold was  found   and   there  were  bnilt.  miners'  cabins���������some    of  which   I   had   the  pleasure   of   seeing���������there   was   fixed  the .site,  and   there  today  stands  the  beautiful  City of  Helena,  lho capital  or* our neighboring state of Montana.  But  the niiner scarcely ever halts.  We   next  hear  of  him. in   the   Kootenay,   then   uniting   along   tne   neaa  waters     of   the     Saskatchewan,    and  down   to   the   then   only   agricultural  centre  in our great north  land,  Kdmonton, where he tarried for a time,  engaged   in   washing  out  gold.    Still  drifting   eastwards   ho   came   to   the  trading  post of Victoria,  tho site of  a mission school and a settlement of  familfes   of   the   mixed   race,    tirown  weary of the  hardships  of a miners'  life   our   hero   craved   tho   rest,   of   :i  home   and   here   he   met,   loved   and  married an educated daughter of the  prairies,   whom   he   cared     lor    and  cherished   to   the  close  or   ins   lire;  to them  has been  given a family of  1-1, all of whom with the mother sur  vives, and to whom he has loft the  Inheritance of an unblemished unit  honorable namo, which if preserved  win lasi whiio rain and sunshine  makes green and attractive the beautiful  hillsides  of Alberta.  He remained six years at Victoria,  whero be attempted farming, finding  the winters extended, ho turned to  mo country ol ine ".uciJoiigai-s, io  the home of tbo buffalo, to the beautiful feeding grounds of Central Alberta.  While engaged in the merry chase  of the wild herds that dotted our  prnli'ics In the early seventies lie  found himself on one of the prominent uplands, near lhe mouth of tho  lilbow river, and spread out beforo  him wits a sceno of indescribable  beauty, lt was in October, lho roli-  tigo of the trees Unit fringed both  streams was variegated and lovely,  encircling the valley whoro Calgary  now proudly stands. The morning  was clear and ln lho distance was  scon one hundred miles of tho grandest mountain range that lho eye of  mnn over rested upon. To his right  hand, but a few rods distant, was  the continence of our popular streams  tho Bow and the Elbow. It was another "meeting of tlie waters," clear,  cool and sweet. Ilo was entranced.  He 'jaw before him, with that vividness of memory, so characteristic of  bis race, another Vale of Avoca. ami  the words of Ireland's favorite poet  occurred to him:  '���������There  is not  in  this  wide  world  a  valley so sweet,  As   the  vale   in   whose     bosom     the  bright waters meet."  On one of  tho most attractive uplands,   williin   a  lew   miles   or   itiis  meeting   of   the "waters,   Livingstone  made  his  home,  and   herc-we  found  him when we came in with the railway  in 'S3.    After  the  disappearance  of tho buffalo, our frontier man and  hardy   pioneer,   engaged   in  tho  contemplation  and   forecast  of    tho   L'u-  liirc.   A cultivation and study of the  soil   revealed   to   him   ils    wonderful  fertility   and   made  him   an  enthusiastic   believer-in   ils  early  and   successful   development.     Jn     the  rich  pastures extending both far and wide  he .saw in tlie future like the psalmist  or   old   "the   cattle    on  a    thousand  hills."   Many  woro  the  dangers  that  environed   him   from   hostile   Indians  on the then unguarded frontier.   The  story is often told of his holding the  plough in one hand and the rille  in  the  other,  while  his  wife  and   child  walked by his side.   But he lived to  seo our numerous herds and our smiling  grain  holds.  The character of our venerated citizen   deserves   our   notice.   He  was  most agreeable and entertaining as a  companion  and  friend,  serious while  communicative,   uo   man   over   heard  Lavingstouc   use   ngnt   or    rnvoious  speech.   We  stood  by  his side  while  ho conversed with some of the leading sia'tesmen of the Dominion, who  on   all   occasions   paid   him-  marked  courtesy and respect. - Wc hoard him  with   encouraging   words   smooth ��������� the  pathway   of   tho  tenderfoot  and  pioneer  settler,   and   to   all   were  given  arguments     and     conclusions     mat  marks  the   man   of  reading  and   reflection.    Iii   politics   he   favored    independence   of  party,   and    pronounced   a   terse   and   vigorous   condemnation   ot  anything   in   the   shape   or  monopoly  or   aggression,  and   boldly  declared   for equal   rights  lo  all  and  special   privileges    to   none.     As   a  citizen   ho  was  broad  minded,  patriotic  anti   brave:   as   a   neighbor  and  friend   genial,   hospitable    and   kind.  In religion since his marriage by the  late   Rev.   George   McDougal,   himself  and   ranilly   belonged   to   the   _ietno-  cist  church.   A   rew   years  since   ne  became   a   member   of   our    Masonic  brotherhood,    which     encircles    tne  globe  with   its    peculiar    system   of  morality,     claiming      tho    universal  fatherhood   of God,  and the essential  brotherhood   of  man.   But  the  evening  of  his    life was    drawing near,  "Westward"  the hardships and privations of the  early minors toils had undermined  the apparently vigorous frame, and  friends noted the erect form totier,  and the bright bine eye grow dim.  and at last the end came and the  lion heart of the grand-old pioneer  and frontiersman failed him and on  .the fourth day of October last, surrounded by friends, in the centre of  the "city, in this beautiful valley, he  went to his  long rejt.  And now in the fight 'ir that city  and in the evening shadow." of the  everlasting hills he loved so well,  we have laid him forever a I rest; we  have laid him forever in honor, and  i~y this boautirui tribute to nis  memory, by this mule yet intelligent  appeal to posterity wo have stayed ln  a measure the effacing power of lime  or  oblivion.  Tho prayer of consecration followed and tho brethren joined In the  grand honors, which according to  ancient usage amongst Masons,  should follow siifh a rerrniony. and  iho proccsion ��������� filed away from the  grave in perfect order, returning to  lhe conveyances which took them  back  to  the  lodge  room.  The ceremony was witnesed by a  large number of the citizens, who  had been tempteo out by the perfect  beauty of the day. by respect to the  memory of ono to whom Calgary  owes so much, and perhaps by some  amount of curiosity to witness so unusual a sight.

The fact that The Times'  colonial editor has recently visited  Calgary and is at present investigating  the resources of Northern Alberta will  give lier letters a local interest which  will ciisuro their being eagerly read.  Miss Shaw's llrst letter, written at Luke  Bennett, on the way to Dawson City,  is an excellent review of Canada's position today, based, not on a casual trip  over tho Canadian Puclilo Railway,  but on knowledge as comprehensive as  ii is correct. The letter entertainingly  deals with the four groat principal  divisions of Canadian life���������agricultural and pastoral, mineral and forest.  "Canada at Midsummer," Miss Shaw  commences, "may well repudiate the  title of 'Our Lady of tlie Snows.' It  would be difficult to imagine a more  complete presentment of summer than  Is offered in tlio first week of July by  the territory wliich stretches from tho  Atlantic to the Pacific across the southern border of lhc Dominion. The  impression produced by an unbvoken  railway journey of six days and nights  from coast lo coast is of a land of  clover and roses, of odorous woods  and ripening crops, the continuity of  wliich is only interrupted by noble  waterways and by mountain ranges  of magnificent proportions.  "Taken as a whole such a journey  is an instructive prelude to any attempt to become hotter acquainted  with the conditions of contemporary  development in Canada. The line described by it passes through the four  groat sections of country upon which  the four principal divisions of Canadian life are based. The primal elements out of which tho history of the  Dominion has grown are, as it were,  exposed to view, and when the direction of progress is from cast to west  the historic order of precedence is  suggestively maintained. It is from  cast to west that tho civilization of a  handful of French and English settlers has been carried across the continent."  After touching ou the small farming  of the French habitant, which is described as "rather picturesque ' than  scientific," Miss Shaw continues:  "While the traveller sloops the train  carries him on, passing in the night  into a highly mineralized country of  totally, different aspect from that of  the farm lands of the east, and leaving behind, unseen among other mining centres, the largest nickel deposits  In the world, wliich were accidentally  discovered at Sudbury in the course of  tunnelling for tho passage of the Canadian Pacific Railway. For the greater  part of two days the way lies through  a wild region of forest and rock and  lako, practically valuable for the great  mineral wealth of copper and iron, sil  ver and gold, yrtiich it contains, and  for the lumber and fishing industries  to which its woods and waters give  rise. It is towards the western extremity of this region that the late  gold discoveries of Western Ontario  have been made. Nor is it perhaps  generally, appreciated in estimating the  importance of the lumber and fishing  industries that the total value o������ the"  exports of Canadian fisheries and forests has hitherto amounted to just double the value of her minerals. This  estimate, it should be said, is based  on figures given only up to the end  of 18DK, and therefore leaves out ot  count the gold discoveries of the last  two years.  3ut it is not by what it contains of  commercial value that this district ex-  el ciscs its greatest attraction. Over  sliver and copper and gold districts in  all but a few broken spots the prim-  ei-arTlorest-stlll-stretehc-s-its-dark-robe  from lbe north. 'Old fur trading stations of the Hudson's Bay Company  are passed at intervale, and Indian  legends hang about the country. Nothing in this district Is more beautiful  than the variety and grandeur of lhe  waterways. Rivers, rivulets, waterfalls and lakes succeed each other with  endless charm. Their proportions aro  framed upon every scale, from lily  b'-aring rock pools and rivers no  broader than a mountain trout stream  to iho inland sea of Lake Superior,  whirb covers an expanse of 30.000  s-fi-tar" miles, and the magniflcient  \olinr.e of island studded rivers whoso  rhannols, moulded by the molting of  continental snows, open long vistas  into tlie interior."  , Coining to tho Territories, after  ���������speaking of the grain fields of Manl-  "<i!.a ?*li������. Shaw says: "The prairie  country \r. the home of the pastoral  industry. Ranches are doited over It,  and as the rolling ground sweeps upward lo the base or the Rocky Mountains the iK.st horse breeding farms,  and the largest herds of sheep and  rank- in the country are to be found.  A year or two ago there was no dairying industry in the province. Now  under the inspiration of the dairy  commission of the Dominion government, the industry has been adopted  at various points, and a very considerable export of butter and cheese has  been the profitable result. The whole  of this country is, like the wheat  country, favorably affected by the expansion of the local market. In British  Columbia and the Yukon. Prices -are  bettz-r than they wore, and a brisk  demand has arisen for poultry and all  the lesser products of tho farm. The  overland routes by Edmonton aud  Ashcroft lo tho Yukon run through  this district, and if any satisfactory  method of communication could be established tbo North West "Territories  would become wilh Manitoba tho natural base of food supply to the mining  districts of tho north. Even with the  necessity for sending produce over the  line of Lhe Canadian Pacific Railway  to lbe roast the effect of the mining  development is already clearly precept ible in tbo generally increased pro-  "periiy of the food producing centres.  The further west tho traveller goes  lhc more is the potenial value appreciated of the mineral resources of the  country, which are now in process of  being opened up. When the llrst peaks  ol the Rocky. Mountains are perceived  lio realizes that ho lias reached the  borders of..a-district of which the future must in a great measure determine the future of at least one half of  the Dominion. The tabic land of the  prairies, which rises from a height  abovo tho sea of 700 feet at Winnipeg  lo 4,000 feet in tho pastoral uplands  of Calgary and Morley, comes aoiini-  tc-ly to an end at the base of tho Rocky  Mountains about C00 miles from the  Pacific coast,"  Following a vivid account   of tho  mountains comes a paragraph doallng  with mining:     "Throughout tlio ox-  lent or this country, which Is topographically a continuation ot the   California and  Montana    ranges    oil tho  United States, the presence of valuable  minerals has been demonstrated at so  many  points us to almost constitute  an assurance that   rich   motallterous  beds run through it from end to end.  At Its southern extremity are the rich  mining Holds of Kootenay;  from tho  northern extremities of its hills ilow  the Klondike and other gold bearing  rivers of tho Yukon district.   Between  the  two  tho gold  fields    of Cassiar,  Cariboo   and   othor  places,  of which  the unfamiliar names ring strangely  upon English ears havo shown, even  under the rough conditions in which  tho surface has been scratched, that  tlio belt of precious metal proved to  exist at either end is not altogether  absent wherever it is sought for with  knowledge and experience in the middle.   Beds  of coal,  iron,  copper  and  other commercial ores have beon shewn  to exist ovor enormous areas.   In addition to the valuable coal fields of the  coast the coal beds of the Rocky Mountains range alone are said to have an  area of upwards of 15,000 square miles.  Silver, of which tho great wealth in  the Slocan fields has long been known,  lb also widely spread.   Therois hardly  a known mineral, with the exceptiou  ot some of the precious gems, of which  tiaces havo not been found.   Tho hard -  ships incurred in prospecting a counlry so rugged, and the overwhelming  expense ��������� of  mining  in regular    form  without modern- means of transportation have rendered the development of  Lhe wealth of the district on any wide  scale impossible until within the last  few years.   As in the interior of South  Africa, so here treasure has lain from  prehistoric ages undisturbed, guarded  by the natural difficulties of approach.  None tho less are the apparently .baren  mountain flanks pregnant with gold,  and the wild valleys rich with various  forms of mineral deposit."  Concluding her excellent letter with  moro about British Columbia, the C.  P. R., and other topics, Miss Shaw  writes: "The short period of years  which elapsed since then has sufficed  I.o Indicate the immense" value to the  Canadian people of the means of closer  intercourse which.it has supplied to  them. Only since then have the four  natural divisions of .the country been  able .to work together as part of a  great industrial whole." Federation  placed before them the ideal of union.  The construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway was the first practical step  towards.the realization of tho ideal.  So profound is the modification of the  conditions of life in Canada, which has-  been mado by the possession- of easy  nfeans of communication through the  continent, that the Dominion as it exists today may without exaggeration  be said to be only 12 years old. The  problems which it offers for consideration are new problems, and tho nature  of tho development which is to be looked for in the future cannot be fairly  estimated by any measure of the past."

THE   LOST   CHORD  (Contributed)  Tho following pathetic and  beautiful  incident is communicated  to Th������  Herald by a well known Calgary citizen,  who  vouches  for  ils truth.    He  says: While        listening        to  Madame Walther's delightful  rendering, of this song on Sunday  evening last in the Methodist church  a pathetic scene was brought vividly  before my minds eye and memory  took me back to the spring of 'S3.  An American company of vocal artistes had sailed from New York to  fill a musical engagement in Kings-  ttn, Jamaica, W.I. The leading vocalist, anxious to make a national hit,  devoted his time during the voyage  to composing lines for the 24th of  May. Sitting on deck, and wholly  engrossed .in his work, he had neglec-  ed to lake" the heeded precautions  against the rays of the tropical sun,  and he became; the victim of brain  fever, and was'carried on the arrival  of the vessel at Kingston, in an unconscious state.to an hotel, whero for  days he lingered "in a state of delirium.  Every evening as the time for .his  usual appearance before the footlights drew near, his voice would be  raised in . song, aud the listning  crowds increased until at length  ropes were placed across the street,  those who had charge of the invalid  fearing that the. crowds might be������ome  noisy; but no'warning was needed  to ' the sympathetic listeners-to keep  silence. '        -'        - '  Night after ' night the street was  filled with silent listeners,- eager to  hear the sweet songs of the dying man.  The fever had nearly burnt out the  thread of life and the end was near,  and . at last the uulletin appeared.  "Cannot last through the night." By  7 o'clock the street was crowded, all  intent on listening and full of wonder  as to whether they would hear once  more the splendid voice ,thcy..- had  learned to love. A brief delay, and  then the singer thrilled out' Jessie's  Dream, followed after a short interval by 'l no Pilgrim Father's, soon  tho word was whispered amongst the  strangely affected crowd, "Ho is dead."  Yet still thoy.waited and through the  opon window there floated out to the  deeply moved southerners:  -"-' 'Seated-one- day-at-the-organ���������������������������  I was weary and ill at ease,"  and   so  on,  you  remember  the  well  known song.until the words,  "It may be that only, in Heaven"  were-reached and with a magnificent  note' on "Heaven" complete silence  reigned. The singer was dead. The  silver cord was loosed and the golden bowl was broken. None of the  listeners to that dying singer will  ever forgot the impression ot his  beautiful song on ��������� lhat moonlit  night in a tropical land.  Three thousand letters from Mackenzie river points arrived in Edmonton post office last week.

Ho  invested ?G in tho turf association  last year, aud they bought  a     cemetery    willi     it.

We  think we sec stockmen in the morning ot tlie show driving in herds from  all directions to try and win this $2.

R. sleeping cars, tho change  would be a relief to the reading  public. This proposition is all right,  if Van will give us a job on a sleeping car. we will cork our Jaces and  go Into a deep sleep at once. Any  colored porter can run this paper, and  we know he will enjoy it because  there is so much money in it. -When  told by - the rubbernecks that ho is  on tho, pork, he can explain that he  la no hog and if Van does not liko  tho tone of his articles he can ���������er���������  modify them.      - -    -' ��������� ":  . *    *    *  Let us havo peace. The presence  of rival newspapers should not breed  strife. . We all have our professions  and we all have a- right to live. Ono  must eat. Also drink. Instead of  abusing and belittling each other, let  us .rise above paltriness and operate  with a kindly spirit and in good  humor. The friendly" joke indulged  in between the editors ot little country  rags can. bo conducted in a well" understood spirit of raillery and still  provide amusement and evoke a smile  from' the reading public- It is-part  of tho business.- The Comforter people were awfuly"cordial to us on eir-.  cus day, for the reason that they are  sonsiblo men and can give and take  a joke with the best of them, although  dreadfuly handicaped with plebiscite  proclivities. The - Wetaskiwin- Free  Lance" has perhaps indulged in a  little too -much josh feature In its  day, but the good natured rebuttals  wc have received have shown us that  ao malice was recognized by our good  natured contemporaries. For which  we raise our hats in graceful acknowledgment. However, there may be no  harm in saying that if the occasion  shall arise, we will outslang 'em all.  Thero is absolutely no joke about  this.  *    *   *  We are in receipt ,of the two new  Innistail newspapers. They arc both  all right..
