This would  be a cause for reasonable satisfaction,  even if it stood by itself aleiue. But  seeing that the question of incorporation is bound up with it, the settlement of the matter becomes doubly a  subject for congratulation. , As we all  know this is the case.' , The' people of  Revelstoke are practically a unit on  the point of the desirability of speedy  incorporation. The only particular in  which there has been, any differences  among us has been witli regard to the  wisdom of assuming municipal responsibility before we were -sure that lhe  government would undertake the  work on the river bank. On this point  we "now have Mr. Cotton's solemn  assurance that operations. will commence vvith the New Year and be  carried out to completion. It.seems  then that no further obstacle remains  in the way'of our taking the only step  which remains before incorporation,  that is of naming a date for the first  municipal election for the guidance of  the Lieutenant-Governor.  It is hardly necessary for the Hkrald to point out at this |eleventh hour  the advantages which we , should  derive from assuming the responsibility of self government. Thedisud-  vantages under which we ari" laboring  in bur present disorganized condition*  arc so glaring that private enterprise  is eyeti novv doiug What, it can to contend with them. The town is every  month. ,increasing in size.* Fresh  -residents are coming in"?evei-y-C week.  The'hnppy'go lucky state eif affairs  which has hitherto existeil- is rapidly  becoming intolerable. It is not right  that we should any lunger depend on  private individuals to remedy the  disgraceful condition of onr roads", to  h.iiild sidewalks to keep us out of lhe  mud and put up street lights to shew  us the worst puddles nt night. The  burden of onr fire protection has become too great to be any longer left cm  the shoulders of onr volunteer fire  brigades. In fact incorporation is no  longer a. theoretical question, which  can-be discusse.d.and laid-over, indefi-  nltely. It is a matter of necessity and  the last valid excuse for postponing  action on it disappeared with Mr.  Cotton's pledge last Friday.

It is expected that the  work on   the road  will   begin  in tlie  early spring.  Air. H.

Mr. Floyd and his family  will return to Ferguson in .the early  spring. It is the opinion of Mr. Floyd  that vve will see good times here next  year-, and -that this country has a  grand future before it there is no  doubt.  "It is stated that the Beatrice-has  closed down for the winter. '  Jack McLeod, teamster, has gone  east to his home in Ontario.  Charlie and A.

THE CEMTRAV_POST OFFICE  Last Night's Meeting of the Board of  Trade Declares Against the Project  for the Present  There was a good gathering of the  Board of Trade lust night at the  meet ing called lo test the feeling of the  board on the central post office project. There was an animated discussion on the pros and cons of the idea.  When the matter came down to a  vote there were two motions bofore  the meeting. Mr. H. N. Coursier  moved, seconded by Mi'. John Abrahamson, n resolution endorsing the  proposal of the postofllce department  to establish a central postofflce immediately. Another motion made by  Mr. H. A. Brown and seconded by Mr.  A. K. Phipps deprecated any .change  being made iu the existing arrangements for the present. ' Mr. Coursier's  motion was lost by seven votes. 1\U:  Brown's motion was then put and  carried.  Bourne Bros.  Change in the Record Office  On Monday Robert Thompson re  ceived word from Victoria to the  effect that after the lath inst. his  services as deputy in the recording  office here will be no longer required,  the reatioii given for his dismissal  being to make room for a duly appointed recorder to fill the office made  vacant by the nppointment of Alex.  Spro.it as Gold Commissioner. Tbe  names uf Angus Mclnnes and Joseph  Irwin are mentioned ne possibilities to  receive the appointment.���������New Denver Ledge.  DEPUTY ATTORNEY-GENERAL  His Importation an Insult to the  Many  Capable Men of the Province  With singular unanimity the press  of British Columbia expresses its views  upon tho appointment of an outside  to the position of Heputy Attorney-  General in condemnatory terms. So  fur as the World is concerned we  .have.iiotliing_wh,.te.ve"~_to_-_Kiiy__ag.ai___Bt  Mr. McLean, who might as woll have  been living on the planet Saturn as  the earth, so far ns onr knowledge of  him.went, but-hearing in remembrance the strong hostility whicli was  expressed a couple of years ago against  the appointment of an outsider to a  position on the bench in this Province,  and notwithstanding the opinion expressed by Attorney-General Martin  that there are nonn in this Province  who are capable of discharging the1  duties of the oflice, we remonstrate,  and that in fhe strongest possible  terms, against the innovation whicli  ban been made in this instance. Mr.  McLean may be a. capable man, but,  this does not do a wav with the fact  that he is nn importation and that his  selection cannot he regarded iu any  other light than as a gross insult to  the many able anil capable men in this  province who are quite competent t.u  discharge the duties of the office.���������  Vancouver World.  HICH-HANDED PROCEEDINGS  The Semlin Government Making An  Unenviable Name for Itself  The citizens of New Denver are  justly indignant at the action of the  government in dismissing Mining  Recorder R. Thompson, a popular anil  efficient officer without cause or  reason. At a meeting of the citizens  of that town held on the evening of  November 10th, the following resolu,  tion was unanimously passed aud it  speaks for itself:  " Whereas it is essential to honest  government that gooel and faithful  servants of the people should be secure  in their position regardless of politic.il  changes, and whereas Robert Thompson, a courteous and efficient officer,  has. against the will of the people,  hpen discharged from office without  cnuse, this 'meeting profoundly deplores the said dismissal and considers  it a violation of the principles on  which a sound civil servico is based,  upou popular government,"  NO CHINAMEN ALLOWED  In the Slocan���������How the Mongolian is  Sent on His Way Rejoicing  No more Chinamen are to he allowed  around any of tlie Slocan mines, and  those that were here ire on their way  out, the fiat has been issued tind the  Slocan miners will see that it is  enforced.  Thursday evening about nine o'clock  a body of about 50 miners appeared at  the Ajax mine, where two Chinamen  were employed and asked for the  manager, ilr. Wright. They informed  him that it was for the best interests  of the.Slocan mining region, that the  Uliitiese should be kept out and that  those that had drifted into this section  be obliged to leave. Tlie manager and  his two Chinamen were then escorted  down the hill to the Noble Five concentrator where another Chinamnr.  has been employed. This one too was  persuaded to accompany the miners,  who proceeded to Dalys.ville, at the  Payne tramway, ��������� where another  Chinaman was'added to .the list. The  four Mongolians were escorted to  Sandon, where, with considerable  difficulty, beds were procured for them  which were paid for by the miners.  The Chinamen were told to hit the  trail in the morning and keep going,  not to return to any of the Sandon  mines. The miners then quietly  dispersed.  The whole proceedings, though  possihly a little irregular, was conducted in a peaceable and most orderly  iinumer.       No     threats    or  abusive  uiguage whatever were used. The  country is well riel ot the Chinamen  und the miners are to he congratulated  on the success of the undertaking.  LATER  . The Chinese question is.a live issue  jiist now in Sandon. - The matter has  resulted .in serious disagreement between" lhe managements anil the men  in the minea-and the trouble promises  to spread, ' At the-Ajax. in ine the-'meo  have'quit work'and left the. mine-, the  trouble resulting freini the importation  ofa-Chincse slavy for-the'nien. The  men backing up the action of the cook  in refusing to have the Chinaman  around the cookhouse. Thishappeneel  two weeks ago and since then the  miners from the Ajax. the Noble Five  rnd the Last Chance ran the Chinese  cooks of four mines out of Sandon, as  told in the last issue of the Silverton-  inii. These Chinamen were' handed  over to the chief of police at Sandon  vvith instructions to heud them up the  K. to S. tracks at daylight the next  morning. The spokesman for tha  miners said: " The next Chinaman  to come to Sandon will be treated like  "a~gentleuiaiirhutthe"innn-who~~-hrings  him will have to take the consequences." Last Tuesday the' trouble  spread to the Last Chance mine. The  superintendent there dismissed tho  cook for liis share in the expulsion of  the Chinese and the men, after learning the cause of his discharge, packed  their blankets and left the mine.  Some efforts were made to secure  the arrest of ������everal of the men who  participated in'tbe anti Chinet*e dem  oust rations resulting in the arrests of  a miner named McGinly and anothor  pni'tiier. A good deal of trouble vvas  experienced in getting a justice of the  peace to draw up the papers necessary  for this action, no one liking the job.  The Chinese question is iu its incipient stage as yet, but the mine owners  should distinguish between a Slocan  mine and a Vancouver Island coal  mine. A struggle between mine  owners and miners is a serious thing,  but the wishes of almost the entire  population of the Slocan ought to lie  of more weight than the whim of tbe  mine owner or the fevv dollars he  would save in thn employing of cheap  Chinese labor.���������Silvertouian.

Thc silver properties of  the Slocan iind Nelson division alone,  when extensively and systematically  operated are sufficient to produce a  most beneficial effect upon the country at large, while the results which  wfll bn experienced in Koolenay as  soon as they arc so worked tvill bo  gratifying fn the extreme. The rise-  in silver is again attracting the "attention of the investors in this direction,  and it will not be long until thev Lake  advantage of the opportunities which  await them. Capital does not require  n great-while to look around in its  seeking for safe and legitimate investment; and if silver continues to holel its  own above the,CO mark this fact, will  soon be demonstrated in the opening  up of new prospects and tbe further  development of mines which liavn  been lying idle for some time past.���������  Trade Review.
