Contractor to lurnisli all tools, labor, plant,  etc., required.  Tho lowest or any tender uot necessarily  accepted.  H. ABBOTT,  President Abbott Mines Co., Limited,  Vancouver, B. C.  THE REQUIRED STANDARD  Next Wednesday is nomination day  for the municipal eleetion and so fur  F. McCarty and T. L. Haig aro the  candidates for the mayoralty, H. J.  Bourne having retired, while the  following gentlemen have definitely  stated to the Herald their intention  of running for a seat on the council:  W. F. Crage, Dr. McKechnie, H. A.  Brown, F. B. Wells, John Abraham-  son, W. M. Brown and T. J. Grahame.  The Herald has not the least intention of running any risk of importing into the contest any bitterness by  taking sides as a newspaper., Such a  course would be utterly detrimental  to the best interests of the town. .The  only outcome of the contest which the  Herald desires in comthon with other  business institutions of this place is to  see a business couneil placed, at the  head of our affairs. Because it is a  purely business question whicli the  electors are called upon in this election  to decide. It is so far a purely business  question that the Hekald does.not  consider that any elector is doing his  duty to this town if he casts a vote to  place any man in control of its business, whom he would not want to see  in charge of his own. The idea that  the old timers are entitled to anything  in this matter simply because tbey are  old timers is not.entitled to consideration. If an old timer's record shows  business capacity his claim on the  electors is valid, but not otherwise.  The Herald thinks that the electors  would be wise to secure -some ^expres-  sion of opinion from candidates as to  tbe salary question. The Herald  is of the opinion that while all actually  necessary expenditure personally  incurred in the support of their offices  should" be repaid either mayor or  councillors, payment of actual salaries  is* unnecessary, and a. hurden on our  resources which we should, not;'1 be  asked to assume. .Salaries are-very  well in large placesTtwhere-the* mayor  has..to .give .nearly all his time to  municipal business, but the Herald  fails to see what/any man is going to  give this to'wn in return for a salary as  mayor. The experience is small towns  like thi-s is that'~the mayor has very  little more business to transact for  they municipality than- any other  member*of the council, in fact perhaps  scarcely as much as-the chairman eif  thepuhlic works or finance committee.  The actual hard work of the municipal  business is performed by the municipal" oliicers, and while the mayor's  position is a responsible and honorable  one, there is no reason to suppose lhat  in Revelstoke it will take up so much  of man's time as to appreciably interfere with his own ulfairs.  -=_Bev-ond__ean=?-uneIer_9taiidiiig; on .this  point the Herald  A BMGHTJUTURE  Predicted for the Big Bend Mining  Camp if Transportation Facilities are  Provided.  The figures showing the development of tne mining, industry in the  Itevelstoke district during 1898 are  very encouraging for they prove that  a continued interest is felt in tbat part  of West .Kootenny. The mineral  claims recoi-ded numbered about 170.  the permissions granted 15, and the  abandonments only three. Twenty  placer leases were issued, nnd the free  miners' licenses totalled 3(35. The  revenue from miners' licenses was, all  told, about 3,000 dols. and from general mining receipts about 3.500 dols.  One of the most noticeable features of  the season, however, was the number  of certificates of work recorded, of  which there were 151. When it is  remembered that the year was a quiet  one from a mining point of view, and  the other Httractions like Klondyke  and Atlin drew public attention into  another channel than quartz prospecting, these figures are very, encouraging for sueh a practically new-  camp as the Revelstoke division. Its  principal field. Big Bend, though old  in name and reputation, has seen as  yet only the preliminary stages of  development; but with tlie advent of  improved transportation a noticeable  change will undoubtedly occur, as the  indications are that it will be a  thriving mining country. A number  of promising claims, both quarlz and  placer, are being developed, and the  future, if- it brings the long-de*sjred  transportation facilities, is a bright  one.���������Colonial Goldlields Gazette.

"    I. T. BREWSTER,  Secretary.  Revelstoke. British Columbia,  February Gth. 1S99. 17-21  St. Elmo  Speaking of the results of the five  ton shipment of ore from this mine,  which were given in the Herald last  issue, the Trout Luke Topic says: "  " The; work done on this property up  to the present, consists of a tunnel on  the vein 47 feet in length* and an open  cut of 30 feet. At the end ut this open  cut another tunnel has been commenced to crosscut the .vein at a depth  of 125 feet, and it is expected-when  this is completed a very fine body of  ore   will   be  available   for    shipping  Furposes. -The width of the ore body  rom which t.he five ton- shiDinent was  made is about IS inches, and as far as  present indications go. gives promise  of increasing iu bulk as lhe work progresses. It is the intention , of-. Mr.  McPherson','just, as soon as possible, to  place this property iu shapeto become  a .steady-shipper. The ore for the  present ivill be taken ont by way of  the Great Northern trail.  M. K Lawson.

A.R.B.HEARN)  does, inot" see that  any candidate can in reason be asked  to pledge himself;? ?The.re are rnriiors,  of which the Herald does not vouch  for the truth, of a list of-- conditions  which .a labor organizationin town is  asking candidates to sign in return for  the ''labor vote.; ? In thei ? Herald's  opinion the electors will do,, well to let  any candidate severely alone whii can  be proved to have signed any such  document. A mau lias no business  pledging himself in the sole interest of  one portion of t.ho community, as if  tho interests of one ...section were  bpposed to those-' of all the rest.  Revelstoke wants men at her-council  board, who are working for the welfare  of Revelstoke and not sent there to  support through thick and thin the  supposed interests eif one class or to  advocate the theories and ideas  adopted for their own ends by ,any  oue section of tho community. The  labor class? is entitled to just as much  consideration from a town council iw  nny olher class and no more; and any  candidal* who pledges to give it any  more is ipso facto unfit to receive the  votes of the community as a whole. If  the labor organizations in town want a  candidate let them bring one out  themselves and we shall', know, where  wc are'at. . But we elo not _.vant any  candidates secretly pledged to certain  conditions in order to secure a: certain  vote, whether of the laboring class or  any other section of the community.  In short in the Herald's opinion  the. qualifications for a candidate fnr  miiiucipal honors are that he should  possess business capacity, that he  should not want a salary and that he  should be free from any entanglement  of pledpes in class interests to promote  the welfare of iv community as, a  whole.  -,    Biggest Loss That'Has Been  Mail and Empire���������Mr. Mulock conducted the postoffice at a loss of $69,000  last month. - -  -    -  This is a deficit of $2,200 per day, or  of $828,000 a year. ^ -  In addition to this loss of $828,000 on  the workingof the postoffice in Can-ida  we pay $560,000 a year for the carriage  of mails in steamships.  So that in round figures the loss is  $1,388,000 annually.  They are going to put a tax on tea  to cover the Mulock deficit caused  caused largely by a two-cent rate.  Teh cents is the tax proposed, but at  six cents a pound the Government will  on the 21.000,000 pounds imported just  raise $1,440.000.,  The average man~wHo~poBts-aMetter  a week and uses a pound a tea a week  will save 52 cents a year on his letters  and pay for this saving $3.12 a year on  his tea.  Halcyon Springs Meeting  -The annual meeting of- the Hale-yon  Hot. Sptings Sanitarium Company,  limited, was held yesterday afternoon  in the office of the British American  Corporation. Dr. R. G. Brett in the  chair. The annual report showed that,  the company was in good financial  condition and the property was improving in value. The old board of  directors and officers were re-elected  without opposition. Arrangements  arc being made to bottle the water on  a large scale, so as to be in a position  to ship it to all parts of the country.  A number of improvements at the  springs have been decided upon and  very shot tly the hotel and sanitarium  will be plac-ed under new matiiigeiiietit.  ���������Rossland Miner.  THE GREAT WESTERM  Holds   Its  Annual   Meeting���������Work  on.  the Nettie L to be Pushed  There were571,300shares represented  at the shareholders' annual meeting of  tbe Great Western Mines, Limited  Liability, held on Tuesday last. The  news of the rich strike on the Nettie'  L was well received by the share-'  holdersand the manager was instructed  to continue active operations at the'  mine with a view of shipping all the'  ore possible while rawhiding and"  sleighing was possible.  President Pool occupied the chair  ���������ind Jno. J. Young was appointed  secretary pro teni. in the absence of J..  D. Gtaham in the Atlin country.  The minutes having been  disposed'  of. the usual  reports  were  submitted1,  showing a very satisfactory state of.  affairs.   Since the company acquired    ,  the   Nettie  L   property  a  year ago.  nearly  200  feet   of   tunnel work' has  heen done.   The  tunnel' was  run  to '  crosscut the ledge, at a depth of about:  115 feet and is one of the best pieces of.,  work yet done in the Lardeau,  being-  larger than the average and as straight"  as a rule, timbering being done  wher-'  ever required.   The following extract  from  the  directors'  report gives the  result of the cutting  of the ledge at  the end of tbe tunnel: . ���������* The result of  the work on the Nettie L has proved  most satisfactory and encouraging to  the   company.   The tunnel has  been.  driven to tap the ledge  at  a depth  of -  over 100 fe~et, where it passed through *  seven feet of iron, and  copper-bearing *  rock, three, feet^of  talc,   2������   feet   of  graphite and 18 inches of solid gray  copper -ind galena, of which there is  now  a considerable quantity on  the  dump ready for shipment.     Itwill.be  .-  necessary to run about five feet further  to cut the  hanging wall,   where   the  richest ore on the surface'shows." - -  Assays from "an average sample of   -  the ore across the  18 inch  paystreak  show 251.4 ounces silver.'-22.7 per cent. -'  lead and   0.0 "per   cent,   copper.    An   '  assay of the iron ore.gave $5.00- in  gold."  The company proposes to sink a 50  foot winze on the.ore and also to. run ".  levels each way*aIong.._,the pay streak."- '  and arrangements "are'being made to"'  make shipment9,immediately.   As the  ore can lie transported to Thomson's-,'  Landing, at the head of navigation on:  the Arrow Lakes, for $10.50 per ton, it  is expected that good returns will be"  made from the first shipments. .  The Directors'  report further  says:  '".  " There is good reason; for the" belief   ..  that during the'present year -a- line of" '  railway'  will   lie    constructed  from,"  Afrowheatl to Kootenay Lake and the* *"  line   must   ptiss  through'   the.

Extensive  development work has been carried on  during the past year on several claims-"  extending from lbe Silver Cup 'to the-  I X L, a distance of over five miles,"  arid in most cases the work has shown.-*.,  highly gratifyingresiilts." *      ���������  "The high grade  pf. the  ore,   the-"  accessibility of the property and tbe  prospect of railway communication at  an early date, render the Nettie L a  most valuable property and  point to ';"  the probability of the same becoming ���������'���������  a shipper in the near future."    '"  The  Great   Western  is   to   be-congratulated on the rosy prospects ahead' *  of it.     Mining men who have seen the  Nettie L ore pronounce it'~exceeditigly,  rich and likely to become increasingly,  so with greater"depth.   Certainly the"  company occupies an enviable position.  -'���������  ��������� W. F. CRAGE j Churchwardens | nat���������w>  County Court  (Before Judge Forin).  Court opened on Thursday morning.

A  crosscut tunnel of 110'feet in length  hns been driven,showing up where the  vein was encountered, 10 inches of  solid ore besides a very large body of  concentrating ore.

Fire on Douglas Street  Early  yesterday  morning   the pre-^  mises on Douglas St. occupied  hy the  Itevelstoke Photet Co. as a studio* toe.k  fire.     F.  L.  Lemon. _. the     manager, ���������  had been working nil- night and   had  just reached his hotel,  the Columbia  House, to go to bed, when the alarm  of file was given ami  011   running out  tei the scccne of  the   conflagration he  discovered to  his  amazement  lhat it  was in his own place of business.   Tho ���������  fire was confined to the interior of tl e *  building; and seems to have originated  in a cupboard, in wl.������ich   Mr.   Lemon ���������  kept   his   burnisher.     He   had   been  using this   machine, which   when   In .  use is kept constantly warm   by two  coal oil lamps, and after turning out  the lamps  had  placed  it   in   its   cupboard.   It is conjectured that the still,  hot lamns set fire to the woodwork or  some  paper  in   the  cupboard.    The  flames completely gutted the interior ���������  of the building di*stroying a number of  valuable negatives, which it will take -  a long time to replace.     One camera,  was saved out of the fire.    Mr. Lemon  places his total  loss at between  S7Q0  and $800.   Insurance on the stock $601)  in Phoenix.   The building belongs to ���������  A.

SATURDAY,  MARCH   11.  1899.  A.MAGNIFICENT BOAT  GROWTH OF TNE.EMPIRE  Some striking tacts and figures  bearing on the growth of the empire  ��������� ic' brought out in the 'paper which  Sir Robert Griffin read the other night  at the meeting of the Royal Colonial  Institute. Including Egypt and the  Soudan the lecturer showed that the  r-.ueen ruled over 13,000,000 square  miles of territory, inhabited by  <20,000,000:> people, 50,000,000 ro������ whom  ?re English speaking.  Since 1S71 there has .been.exclueling  Egypt and the Soudan,"an increase ol  t "sdU.OOO square miles of area and  cf 125,000,000 of population, while the  Increase in revenue during the same  yeriotl has amounted to ������115,143,000,  or more than 40 per cent of the total,  snd of imports, and exports to  .f-.2S.600.000, or about one third of  the present total.  The progress amongst the English  E-peaking pcrtions of" the, empire has  been* most marked - in the case of  Australia, which since 1871 lias-increased Its population 126 per cent,  its revenue 165 per cent, and its trade  112 per cent. Amongst the subject  states of the empire, ��������� South Africa,  was pre-eminent, for since 1871 it  had Increased Us population 275 per  c*.nt, its revenue 91 per cent, and ils  trade 513 per cent. The growth of  li dia��������� however, in the same period  ���������was shown to be very remarkable.  There are more than 300,000,000 people for whom England Is responsible  in India, and of those 73,000,000 have  been added since 1S71; the revenue  and trade have expanded wonderfully  also, the former bv S3 per cent, and  the latter 104 per cent. Theso latter  figures, -however., are subject to lhe  consideration that they are not reduced to a gold valuation. This record has never been equalled in the  history of the world.

Tbe crazy Utile barque or  IS* ions, bearing beneath her deck  the fortunes of a race, putting in for  repairs at Dartmouth and Plymouth,  hardly Etrong enough to hold together across the Atlantic, landed her  hundred he-roes and heroines, after  more than four months, on a rock  which was to be the corner stone of  American freedom.

The Allan   Liu-;   New   Steamer   "Castilian."  On Saiuratly last there arrived in  (he Mersey the new Allan liner Cas-  t'-lian. .which tip-lo llie present is. the  Incest vessel lhe company have  built. She is 470 feel long, 03 feet  j inches beam,.find 31! feet deep,wilh  a Kross tonnage of S000 and a elis-  I-lacement of 14,850 tons". Her great  beam is designed lo serve a threefold purpose. It gives a huge cargo  capacity and tit the same lime enables the piissenger'saloons and slate-  rooms to be more than usually spaci-  t'tis. while lust, but not least, it will  ������ccure .that the ship does not rentier  her passengers uncomfortable l'J undue rolling in a beam sen, while to  render the vessel still steadier stib-  irtaiitia! liilne keels have been fitted,  'llio Casiiliun is oT handsome appearance, being schooner rigged with one  funnel���������a huge circular fabric some  11 feet in dinnicler. While the foremast is of steel, lhc after one is ol  v.coil, nntl half way up is placed a  compass, which, being thus fixed away  fiom the hull unci sice, deck erections, may lie relied, upon as absolutely infallible���������and therefore invaluable during ihick weather. Nothing, in fact, has been omiiled to  make the Caslilian a thoroughly safe  .-.111 p. her ..builders, Workman &  Clark, of Belfast, having adopted all  the hi test improvements, in marine  ���������*.rcbiieclure. Thus lliere is a cellular  double bottom extending tlie whole  length of the ship. This not only  niovides storage space for waler bal-  iasi. hul ensures thai should the Cas-  tiiian bo so unfortunate as to run on  ;o rocks, a most remote contingency,  the would still float, bor upper bottom  preventing the waler from entering  tho ..i.i.-. Then there are nine watcr-  tje-i*"   bulkheads.  The ship  is  lighted  throughout  by  '.lectricity, and has a large cool storage accommodation, a special refrigerating chamber having been set apart  tor  stores  to  be  usee!   by  passengers  cn  the voyage.    As a  passenger  ves  pi  tbe    Castilian is sure to speedily  attain popularity, for she embraces all  those   improvements     which    Messrs  Allan's long experience for lhe North  Atlantic     passenger   trade -has   sug-  gcsteel.     The   saloon   passengers   arc  berthed amidships on the biidge deck.  On the promenade deck above is llu  music   room,   furnished   with   a  style  md   elegance  which   on<~   hardly    cx-  r.tcts  to  find  on  ship  board  even   in  these days of luxurious ocean travel.

JAPAN VS. BRITISH COLUMBIA  t Leon  To  the  Editor:  Sir:    .At the first glance 0110 would  say  the  people  of  a  province  would  have 11 perfect right to say who shall  be allowed to settle among them. To  a certain extent they have, bill wheu  we consider lhat by refusing to allow  the people of a' friendly nation under  any   circumstances   lo   settle  in     the  country thoy may seriously affect the  initio relations of our nation, we can  recognize tlie right of the federal government   lo   interfere.    In   the   North  West   Territories   tlie   situation   with  lcgard   to  Doukhobors  and   Galicians  is veiy difteent.    li.is uot a question  of offending some frieiully nation by  ;elling them that in no case are their  citizens   lit   to   associate   with   white  men.    It   is   the   action   of   our   own  servants   in   collecting   the   scum     of  European   nations   and   forcing   them  on us whether we like it or not. They  torgec   that   they   are   responsible   to  us as well as to  the party by whose  Influence they have been placed lu the  oosilion   of   responsibility,   which     is  often done by a parly  leader merely  itating  that they  are  Ct and   proper  persons  to  represent us.    How  many'  ?ive 11 thought to the fitness of a can-  ���������lidate, but accept a man on the word  of a leader who may be a good man,  but quite as often a rogue whose only  ibjeci is to fill  his own  pocket,  and  il  is  only  aftor  tbey   begin   to  fulfil  their   duties  thai  the   masses  realize  vhat. fools they have been.    The Do-  ���������ninion government say that wo have  10  rights in  tlie  North   AVest lands,  and 'yet   by   tlieir   settlement     with  Manitoba' they   have   recognized   the  -Igilts of .the people to the land and  ither natural .wealth of this country  :n trust for the building of it up. Any  ���������Ight  the  Dominion   government  had  o control them or what should be our  provincial affairs ceased the day they  -ecognizecl  a  local  government elect-  id  by  the  people  of  the  Territories,  for  they  have  not  been    elected'   lo  'ook   after   our   local . interests���������lhey  only assumed those duties when there  was  no one else  lo do-it and  would  low retain them in as. far as it suits  tlieir purpose, that is to say, tliey allow  113  lhe work  and   expense while  hey-reap all  the profit.    It is to  be  hoped  that our  people  will  never be  0 foolish as to acept any other settlement   vriMi   the"   Dominion   government as Manitoba has.    Her troubles  have only commenced.    In what state  will she be financially when she has  been  a provnicc as long as Ontario?  Would Ontario submit, to her natural  wealth   being  kept  from   her?   1  say  hat she would not. but if she had she  would  have been  bankrupt long ago.  What  n   prospect   for   the  older  provinces  to have in  lhe  future to support, several  provinces  pauperized- by  their Dominion legislators before they  wero   allowed,  to   exist   as   such. * Al  iny rate, in llie North West,, no matter  lo  what  party we  belong,  we aro  bound   lo   fight   for   a   very   different  policy from what either party has as  ycl offered us.  -   Yours  truly,  THE   BISON.  prings  Upper Arrow Lake,  BRITISH COLUMBIA  Well Known for Their  Health Giving Properties.  mimmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm  r  s.

The latest statement given up by Dr.  Dunham last night was that his patient was better in one way ar.d  worse in another, and* this simply  meant that while Uie respiration  improved, showing that respiration  was taking place in tl'.e affected lungs,  the fever hail not subsided, and* that,  therefore, the crh-is had" not been  reached.

The most advanced scientific methods have been adopted for the treatment anel for several days oxygen  was forced into the lungs lo tide over  Hie times that Mr. Kipling was unable  to breathe in sufficient air 1*5 sustain  life. The oxygen method was abandoned yeeterday. a hopeful, sign. The  patient began ts breathe more freely  carlv this morning and dropped into  a refreshing sleep, the first in days  and the one essential to restore bis  fast waning strength.

My chief underlying principle will  be economy as far as is consistent  wilh the progress and welfare of  the town.  Our town is scattered anil will  rcepiire ils expenditure to be of a  most careful and well considered  character.  One of the first undertakings  which our new municipality will  hi* called upon to assume will be  the placing of the. town on a satisfactory sanitary basis.  This will be a lengthy task  but one which in my opinion  should be i-oiiiiiieneeil ai. once in a  plan of a permanent nature. Onr  principal si reels will require to be  graded,   siclewalked   and   lighted.  An efficient system of fire protection will demand the attention of  your council.  In my opinion no salary shoulel  be paid to the mayor and council.  In tbe handling pf municipal  works the first to lie employed  should be the residentsof the town.  Any legislation or project for the  advancement of the town will  receive my hearty support.  The above is the programme  which I have mapped out .-ind  shall eneleavor to follow. Taking  my stand on this platform I solicit  the votes and support of the  electors.  F. McCarty.  the Canada Drug  has been laid np  several days, was  has not yet fully  Miner.

To-morrow is Mid Lent or Mothering  Sunday, the latter term being in u~*e������  in some purls of the old country owing  to the custom of people who had left  their own parish making a point of  attending at the mother church on  this d-iy. It is also railed Refreshment  Sunday, as on that Sunday it is considered permissible to relieve to some  extent the penitential character of Unusual I-enten services by the selection  e'-f Iivmns speaking of the consolations  and comfort of Christ rather than of  lepentance and sorrow for sin.  Gentlemen :  In response to the request of a number of electors I beg to offer myself as  a candidate forthe mayoralty of our  newly constituted City.'  Should you do me the honor of electing ine the following are some of the  questions which, in my opinion, it will  be my duty to lurther by every means  in my power as the city's chief  representative.  To uphold and preserve the city's  financial credit by strict economy in  tbe administration and collection of  ils income and expenditure would be  my first duty.  The moral anel social elevation of the  community must, receive the attention  of everyone who has its highest nnd  deepest interests at heart, and any  civic: legislation that might be needed  to either conserve or advance those  interests would receive my hearty  support.  Nothing will  conduce  more  to the  comfort and convenience of a greater  number of our citizens than tbe udop-  I tion and carrying out of a woll consiel-  [ creel scheme of street improvements,  ind such a scheme embracing aa two  essential conditions, the greatest good  I'or the greatest number,  anel a  due  regard   fo*'   the   city's   purse,   would  receive my careful consideration.  The imprnvemer.t of our cemetery  and the acquisition of lands for the  purpose of public recreation grounds.  The improvement and extension  of the means of protection against  lire already provided by our two  admirable local brigades.  ���������The fact that, generally speaking,  our population is spread over a large  land area and not, confined to a few  overcrowded streets as in many other  localities offers tlie best opportunity  for tlie success of a simple system rif  sanitation if strictly enforced, and we  uie thus relieved from the immediate  consideration of an elaborate scheme  of pipe sewerage, lhe'carrying out of  which would undoubtedly tax the  resources of our municipality far too  heavily ao the present time.  The payment of a feiir rate of wages  tcrallei 11 ployed on-municipal work-anel-  the claim that city residents should  havo. as far as possible, the first claim  for city employment, are two consider-  ationswriich should, in niy opinion,  required to be borne in mind and  acted upon in all departments of our  municipal expenditure.  The consideration that if T am  elected I shall be elected by Revelstoke  as a whole, must and would lead nie tn  use my best endeaeors that interests of  no part of lhat whole should*'be neglected.  In conclusion, I trust it is scarcely  needful for me to say that I started as  the nominee of no party or clique in  this place, and if elected* I shall strive  to preset ve that complete independence of any party or corporation  which is in" my opinion so entirely  necessary for the safeguarding of our  city's inleiesls. Looking forward, gen'  tlemen. to the opportunity soon to be  afforded of meeting you on the public:  platforms and there discussing more  fully these nnel other questions.  Yours very truly,  T.
