A Sketch oi ths Reasons Which Justify  the Hopes of the Residents of Revel-  ' stoke That the Town is Destined to  Become a   Large  Business   Centre���������  A Solid and Prosperous Future Evident  It   is     chiiracteiistii:   of   a    mining  district that/the thoughts of our people  dwell very little on the past progress  of Norlh Kootenay,  but tend always  to push  forward    into    the   future.  Scarcely has the  work of the suasein  ended before we are nil talking about  what is going to be done   next  year.  And us'faros'Kevelstoke is concerned  the general expectation appears to be  well" grounded   that^ next  year and  perhaps even'to a still larger extent  thc   year "following , will -witness a  development far- exceeding any that  has hitherto taken place.   These hopes  arc  based on   the , materializution  of  .ert-ain factors which hnvo lung been  atcopted as necessary to the   proper  expansion of this   plAcc  as   a   trade,"  railway   and .mining centre.   In the  lirst place the C.P.R. shops have been  built and in a few weeks will be in full  running    order,*,   employing  a large  number of li.-tnds, giving a  permanent  increase tn our population and adding  ceinsider.ibly to the   monthly pay roll  e>r   the   town.     And   while   this   has  been'already  secured, it is also now  reasonably certain that the  extension  nf the branch   line- from  Arrowhevd  through'- tho'Lai-dejiijV to   Kootenny  Lake will lie cuuimeiiceil   next spring.'  This line cannot fail  to add  considerably lo the importance of'this placeas  .1 lailwny centre.      In fact it seems  to  lhe IJisitAi.D  to  be difficult   to   overestimate the possibilities of llevelstoke  in this connect ion, possibilities  which  seem Jik'ely lo evolve into ai:ceimplis>hed  facts within a very short period  With extension of our railway connections will naturally come .a large  expansion of our trade. Considerable  hopes are even now entertained in well  iiiformed="qimrtei's���������lhat���������the-C:P.It:-  mithorities are disposed to recognize  the possibilities of Kevelstoke as a  distributing cent re and that an adjustment of freight rates, based on the  acceptance of the undoubted fact thai  llevelstoke and not Vancouver is the  best point from which to 'light Spokane, is within the range of practical  politics. This point is the key to the  whole situation. On its recognition  depends tho development of Revelstoke into a place of really first class  importance. A good business point,  a considerable railway centre, Kevelstoke; is hound to be. But as u terminal  point in this C.P.It'. system she would  immediately bound to n plate second  only to Vancouver on the mainland of  British Columbia. This, anel nothing  short of this, is the goal to wliich our  business men :������ntl board of trade should  set their faces and strain every nerve  lo attain.  In other respects our trade outlook  cannot be separatcd'hi thought from  the prospects of the mining districts of  which Kevelstoke is the acknowledged  centre. These are bright. Next season  will see a good deal of work dotie in  that section, which is most important  of all to Revelstoke���������the Big Bend.  The French Creek Co. have come out  well satisfied with last season's cleanup. Next year will see one, if uot two,  more hydraulickiug companies at work  on Cioldslream and its tributaries. Thc  London and B. C. Alliance Syndicate  intend to continue operations on their  properties in Ground Hog Basin. The  Carnes Creek Co. and the Adair Co.  will also operate their properties as  usual next season. And a good deal  of assessment and development work  will go on in any event. But now  that the p.ioj. cl'of placing a steamer  on the upper river to ply regularly  between Revelstoke and La Porte has  taken tangible shape, we may expect  to seo a great deal more work done  than could be possibly looked for  under the"present transportation conditions. It may look a small matter,  but it just makes thc whole difference.  Our business men have responded  generously lo the invitation of the  promoters of the scheme, recognizing  no doubt the reasonableness of the  Heraxd's contention that it is to the  district nortlrof the main line of the  C.P.R. that this place has to look for  her special trade as a mining centre.  At tho same time the extension nf  lhe line to the south through the rich  mineral district of the Lardeau, can-,  not fail to stimulate trade in tliat  direction. The Hkiiald believes that  the construction of the road will furnish a "uvelatipn in the way of speedy  development"and astonishing richness  which will amaze even Kootenay. It  depends very largely on our own  business men Lo liow largo an extent  Revelstoke will retain the trade of  this district as soon as the road is constructed. There will be considerable  competition. Energy will no doubt elo  much. But a great deal more than  individual enterprise can'do, can be  done by a-persistent and united effort  to have the freight rates adjusted in  our favor. .The construction of this  road should prove if properly handled,  Uie strongest lever in tiur hands with  the C.P.R. authorities. By it a large  stretch of country is being brought  into close connection with their ever  active competitors across the line.  Revelstoke is made by it still mors  markedly the only strategic position  from whicli thej" can-hope successfully  to contend for the trade with such a  highly favored railway point as Spokane.  These considerations appear fully to  justify thu feeling of hopefulness for  the future, which is maintained by lhe  people of Revelstoke at the closo of n  season which has been rather dull and  depressed -from a business point of  view. ' It is u feeling which when  steadily entertained hy enterprising,  level-headed men, contains in itself a  ciiiisiderable-eli'inent-of-success. __J3ut_  when iu addition it is based on such  reasonable and solid grounds, as it can  he shown to be in this case, it points  unerringly to development, expansion  and prosperity.  PAWS     OFF    POMPEY  A WARNING  FROM THE TROUT  LAKE CITY TOPIC  KELLIE AND HUNGRY HEELERS  To  Keep   Their   Hands   Off  the   Gold  Commissioner���������An Appreciation o.'J. P.  Sibbald's   Services   from    the     Local  Organ  of  the   Lardeau���������A   Practical  Man and an Excellent  Official.  It would appear lrom  recent developments that British Columbia's  civil  service is taking rapid strides toward  occupying the unenviable position  of  that   of    the     United   States,  where  whenever there is a political upheaval  civil servants are sacrificed  right  aiul  lelt without   regard   to   valuable services or   peculiar  capabilities  for  the  offices they hold.  , While in Revelstoke recently we  were ap'prisetl that strenuous efforts  wero being put forth by a couple of  political bosses to have J. D. Sibbald  turned out of the Gold Connnissioiiei-  ship ' and that important position  assigned to one or two tenderfeet who  shall he nameless. Now, this would  be a silly move, as at.no time in the  history of Kootenay has tliere been  employed a more capable man in,this  capacity. During the past months of  his service he has gained the confidence of mining men and prospectors  throughout this section who are nowise stinted in their praise of his  administration. He is a practical niiin  anel knows a shaft-' from an artesian  well, nnd lie has not to rely on the  technical-knowledge of a subordinate  to tell-Jiim* whether a trail is cut  properly or not. lie is thoroughly  conversant with every branch ot his  department and can * be approached  without having recouise to a Jong  distance telephone. And lastly, during the short time he hus held  office he has made no serious  err.ovs and no matter how fervently  his enemies may wish to oust him, it.  vvouid he'in the interests of mining  development in this'secLion.aud others  of his jurisdiction, to tell'these hungry  office-seekers to lie.areT'an early traiii  for the coast and satisfy their appetites on clams.  Anot bet* good man who sunk under  the axe of the political headsman was  Mr. Gosnell, the provincial librarian.  Few men iu Canada aie better eiuali-  lied-I'or that position than he, and  certainly.the man who succeeds him  will have to be a shining light or he  will cut but an insignificant figure.  Mr. Gosnell in his Year Book has conferred iui'iiiestimuhle benefit on British  Columbia, arid it is to be i egrette'd if  "oy this move of political rancor,, we be  deprived of this splendid work on  British Columbin, its history "and  resources.  NU. 1 JUMPS THE TRACE  WENT OFF AT REVELSTOKE  STATION  A VERY SEVERE SHAKING UP  Engine, Tender, Mail, Express and'  Baggage Cars and One Colonist Off  the Rails as No. I Pulled in On'  Sunday Afternoon���������The Mail Clerk  Used Rather Roughly by the Accident-  As the No. 1 with its usual full load  of passengers w.us pulling inlo the  stat ion on Sunday afternoon tho engine  became derailed, dragging the mail  car, baggage car. and front colonist  olf the metals with it. Nothing very*  serious happened, though some people  on board," particularly the mail clerk,,  were pretty badly shaken. ,The ties  were ploughed up and scattered for*  cpiit". a piece on the main track." The  tender shot off her trucks and landed  on them again erossways, and the  switches were li.ieily knocked about.  The cause of the accident is staled to  be a turned vail. It took a wrecking:  party working hard till after II o'clock  to get the No. 1 u der w _y again, audi  they were still at work late on Monday'  removing Lhe last traces of the accident, the tender of .the engine 320f  being tlie last* to be cleared away.  Have You Seen McEwen?"  This is the question that everyone  will be asking next week when The  Great McEwen, the peer of all hypnotists, has been seen in his- marvelous  entertainment. His demonstrations  of hypnotism in surrounding cities  where lie has appeared are pronounced  as almost beyond belief, and yet they  are open to investigation bv all. A  great discussion has been aroused in  the newspapers ns lo whether a hypnotized person who will commit ridiculous acts could not also be compelled  to commit crime. Authorities agree,  however, that this is impossible unless  tho subject is a criminal by nature. In  other words, lhat a hypnotized person  cannot be compelled lo do anything  which they would not, with ' proper  inducement, be persuaded to do while  in a normal condition. . Mr. McEwen  has conducted his experiments -wilh  the approval of the best people, and,  betsides this, he always furnishes a  flue entertainment, combining amusement, with inst ruction."  To convince one's self Hint, such  entertainments should be patronized,  we hnvo but- to reflect that by the  truths revealed by experimental  pschology there has been e'rectcd au  eternal, living monument to man's  intellect and reason, expanding, as it  does, the horizon of thought, and  placing a new star in the firmament of  mental philosophy. Oue. strong  feature of McEwen's entertainments  this season is tlie tests accomplished  with Grace M. Maynard, the only lady  catalcptical subject in America.  He can be seen at Tapping's 'theatre  for five nights, commencing Nov. 2Sth.  Admission, 50c. Reserved seats on  sale at IheCanada Drug & Book Co.'s  Store and H. B. Wells'.

AS LT USED TO BE  MISREPRESENTING THE YUKON  A gentleman signing himself "Roger  Poeock" has given Lloyd's Weekly  Newspaper a column of highly colored  stuff about the Yukon gold fields and  Yukon routes. Mr. Poeock is to be  congratulated more for the pictur-  esquencss of his style than, for the  reliability ot his facts. He draws a  picture of horror without a single  hopeful gleam.  How far he overshoots the mark  may be judged from his statement that  "the Klondike" has involved . more  casualties than the ordinary run of  wars." He dismisses' the Edmonton  route hy saying that "a mounted police  detachment was out exploring this so  ��������� called route, and found it so absolutely impracticable that they were  compelled to re-provision at Quesnelle,  hundreds of miles off their course."  He blames "a few irresponsible local  newspapers" for "luring a stream of  immigration into the overland route."  As a typical specimen of Pocock's  one-sidedness wo quote the following:  "On the way to the gold are coffin  ships, bad trails made horrible with  c-xcrutiating torment from flies and  mosquitoes, lofty and fearful passages  of mountains, , appalling dangers in  swift rivers, scurvy, pneumonia,  freezing, snow blindness, many  strange kinds ot death."  But it Is when he comes to the  Stickeen route that the vials of  Focock's wrath overflow. His sen  tences then are sulphurous. The  secret of his bitterness is confessed  when he admits that he has been to  the Yukon, lost two hundred pounds  and emerged with "little left except a  horse blanket and a dose of neur-  algia."-  Lloyd's is a widely circulated newspaper. If its publishers wish to be fair  they will publish the true side of the  case, as ably anel Impartially represented in tho letters-"of ' Miss Flora  Shaw and others. The. great trouble  with this Klondike rush is that'thousands of tenderfeet have rushed in  who are. unused' to work, unfit for  travel, who never endured hardshps  and who, like Poeock, get a doso of  j.awsty neuralgia doncher know when  ���������they-1 go-our-in"~~th"e-wet~~-~~~The"majorlty  of these are deserving of nothing but  pity, but when like Poeock they  biame the routes, the country, the  government and everything else but  their own incapacity for their troubles  the interests at stake demand that  they should be called down and the  blame placed where it belongs.  With the Stickeen route The Herald  has nothing to do. Its position in  regard to that ill; fated route and the  hasty and ill advised deal which the  Dominion government pledged itself  to and was unable to carry out,- is  well   known.     We    can    only  regret  " nnd without ..having any responsibility" in-the matter, that the action  then taken resulted in- so much disaster, loss and disappointment to hundreds of travellers  who  were  led dr  1 misled to adopt that route. But as  one; of the "irresponsible local papers"  (presumably "the Edmonton Bulletin  is tha other) which advocated the Edmonton routes we repeat what we said  a few days ago, that we have nothing  to take back and while wc- would not  advise people to travel by this route  until it is improved and further opened up as it should be, or until more  valuable dlscoverines of gold "are  made this side of?Fort Graham, the  facts remain that a considerable number of hardy "gol el seekers have already  got through both:, the Peace and  Mackenzie routes, and that while  there has been hardship and loss there  fca3 been still more on the Skagway  trail. There Is no royal road to  Klondike and the gold fielcls cannot  be reached without hard work and  privation." But the Edmonton routes  are as worthy of consideration as any  others. From a Canadian point of  view they overshadow in importance  any of the coast routes, as. by no  other route could the trade of the  Yukon be so effectually secured , for  Canadians. That the only real Canadian route has not been more of a  success is due to the neglect and indifference of our own - public  authorities.���������Calgary <��������� Herald.
