INTERESTING MINIKC NEWS  The Towser, the Sunshine and the I.X.  L. Development.  A si-heine is now under consideration by the management (if the Sunshine Ltd. Co. lo move the concentra-  tor from the Lanark niinu and sot it  up at some' point in the district in  order to reduce the concentrating ore  which is now lying tit the Silver Cup.  Over 1,000 tons of concentrates Hre  lying on the dump and n like mnoiiiit  is standing in t.he tunnels. This is a  must important matter for tho district ns this facility I'm* reducing ore,  in iU present state unfit for .shipment,  will veiy much enlarge the amount of  ore which will- leave the mine  for the smelter. Another thing wliich  will play tin important part in the development of this splendid property is  the extending of the Sunshine tunnel  to tap the Silver Cup vein. It is altogether likely that this work will be  commenced this season and when it is  completed the Cup will have an enormous amount of ore blocked out and  lying all ready for stuping.  The work on the I. X. L. at the hia.il  of the North 1-ork is showing up th/it  property iu a very satisfactory manner and it is expected by the end of  next season that a, large amount of  ore will be lying on the dump ready  for shipment.  The Towser, adjoining the Sunshine  and Silver .Cup will also, during the  coining season, be in a position to commence steady shipments. The ore  body at present is not large, running  from two to eight inches in thickness,  but it is very high grade and gives indication, of increasing in bulk as depth  is gained.���������Topic.  ���������tote's Great Departmental Store  Easter is  c  almost here  The ladies of Revelstoke will  all have their new Spring  bonnets and your old suit will  look shabby.

'i  Opposite C.P.R. Station  A Protest Against  the  8-Hour  System  A deputation of mining men, consisting of B. J. Perry, gcuoial manager  of tlio Noble Five; J. L. Mullnien. of  the Queen Bess, and F. A. Woods of  the Last Chance, on Tuesday, waited  on Hon. Premier Semlin, " Hon. K.  Ciirter-Ootlon and Hou. Fred. Hume,  of Victoria, and pressed upon their  attention the revision of the legislation  pas-sed lust session introducing the  eiglit-hoiirsystem of labor in the mines.  They pointed out that the new regula-  tions hear heavily on them as they  have to pay $3.50 for eight hours work  instead of ten, as formerly. They also  represented that on account of the  time consumed in setting off blasts  that an hour or two during the day is  practically lost, ar.d that under the  eight hour system the actual working  time is reduced to five or si_: hours.  The government promised the matter  serious, consideration.  THE SALVATION ARMY  An  Encouraging   Report  for  the   Past  Year's Work,  <i ��������� ''  War Cry: Early last spring I was  working in the . little railroad and  ruining town of-Revelstoke, ' in the.  heait of the mountains' of British  Columbia, where Satan has his seat.  Although Revelstoke boasted of four  churches, yet, Satan wns gaining headway. It would have grieved the heart  oT a Christian worker to have seen the  wickedness in the streets of li  One day, as I was returning from  work, a small boy stepped up and said,  Revelstoke. Hehalo ," sir 1" 1 'bought a  piper to see., the news of, the town,  when a si.-i.ill item at the bottom or  the column attracted my attention.  It load as follows:  "The Salvation Army will open fire  here on Saturday night."  I begun to reflect on what I had  heard and read about the Salvation  Army. I could nut, understand tin*  meaning of "open fire." 1 bad beaitl  some say they weie the most excitable  people ever seen, would dance around,  clap their bonds���������in fact, make regular  fools of themselves.  At this time I was not partial to  Christianity. 1 was- accustomed to  curse God, and take His name in va*n.  At last our curiosity wns satisfied  somewhat as one evening wo stood on  the plat form of the station and saw  two girls and an elderly woman,  wearing great, wide bonnets, like coal  scuttles, alight, and with light and  clastic step, proceeded to look after  Iheir baggage.  As they moved about we, closely  watched their actions, almost thinking  they���������were-dill'ereno-to-other���������folks.  Soon alter they began to hold meetings in a dance hall in the most wicked  part of the. town, and I at!ended their  meetings for some time. One night  in one of their meetings God's spirit  look hold of me. so T made my way to  the front. 1 rose, that night a new  mini in Christ Jesus.  I was the seventh victim of the S. A.  We no longer wonder at the Army.  The good they li-ive done here has  cleared the doubts of peoplo. In fact,  we are. having glorious times. God  has wonderfully bless-ed the gills that  wear the coal scuttle bonnets.  Now we stand "a strong army for  Jesus Christ,. only ten months old.  witn 21 enrolled soldiers and 10  recruits, comprising desperate drunkards, gamblers, morphine fiends,  infidels, Swede", Danes. Irish. Scotch,  English and Americans. And so the  Salvation Army is marching along.  Bito." Willis.  Fire at the C. P. R. Depot  Between two and three o'clock this  morning D. Stearman, the night, des-  patcber. who while busily engaged in  his work, hnd for about balf an hour  been dimly conscious of a smell of  smoke, proceeding as he thought from  the stove, got. up from his chnir lo lix  the olleiidmg furnace. when he discovered that the smoke was proceeding from the woodwork of the ollice.  near the chimney. An alarm was  quietly raised and No. 2 Fire Brigade  was on the spot with i ommeinlable  promptitude, and the flames "were  extinguished before much damage was  done. The fire was confined to the  interior round the chimney, whiih  starts from the wailing room and  seems to have crept" down from the  tup floor till the woodwork of the  bracket supporting the chiiiiney  helow caught.. More damage was  done by water than by the flames, and  the station nnd oflices present a singularly dism-il tind chilly appearance  this morning.  Beatrice  Nettie L  D. Cameron and W. Holloway are  working with 12 men on their contract  on the Nettie L. A good substantial  house has been built, the rawhide trail  completed and an ore car has been  taken up and .is now working. One  hundred sacks of ore have heen sacked  up and sent down to Ferguson, four  tons of which are already at the  Landing. A four inch streak^of ore  exactly lesuniblitig the Silver Cup ore  has been struck running through the  middle of the vein. Three shifts will  go to work, at once on the winze,  which is being sunk at the end of the.  present tunnel and two shifts on each  drift. The management will ship all  the ore possible as long as the snow  lasts and will then begin sacking  again next winter.  O. XV. Beer, one of the owners of  thc Beatrice, started seven men up to  ,work on the property last Tuesday.

J. D. Graham at His Post.  J. D. Graham has arrived at his new  sphere of activity, at Atlin and the  Atlin correspondent' of the News-  Advertiser thinks he ia.ill right. ' He  says: "Much credit"-" is - due_ to the  energetic and able way in which Mr.  Graham copes with the somewhat  difficult situalion existing in Atlin.  to-day, and it (an be safely,, said that  the government could not have chosen  a more able or more popular * man.  Hundreds of people are curious to see  the i ecord books, but. it seems likely  that their wishes will not be gratified  for some time to come."

Hl_  BALANCED THE ACCOUNT  A    GREAT    LOSS   OF    LIFE  CANADA A HOLIDAY RESORT  A sensible article appears in a woll  known London journal, The Critic,  advocating the claims of Canada, as  a resort for British tourists who have  a couple of months to spare in the  summer. The  Canadian  Dominion  certainly can boast .o������ a stiperb climate, fine sport, magnificent scenery, and good hotel accommodation.  The atttactions are surely equal to  those found on the European continent, and visitors to .Canada hare not  as yet been subjected to the organized  Kyttem of robbery indulged in by exigent landlords and other harpies  Britishers would have the additional  -Stisiaetion      of      finding them-  selres among their own people. Canada U the moat conveniently reached of any of the colonies, and the  ~~no������ey scattered round would do us  lots of good. Therefore, why nol  Canada ae a holiday resort?  Apart from the bracing Bea trip,  Canada offers better ralne for money  than any of tbe beaten tracks of  Europe. For the man interested in  aew mineral developments, for the  business man, 'with ac eye to future  markets, and for the general pleasure  seeker, Ca*ada has much to com-  a~e__ it.  Thousands of colonial visitors flock  to England every year and spend  their money freely, to the great benefit of the hotel keepers and tradesmen. It ie time the compliment "was  returned. An axiom of social life  provides tkat all the' rialting should  net bo on the one eide; equally good  ia this principle when It concerns the  Members ef our great Imperial family,  I������st������ad of Ehiropean serrillty "there  is every where, Ior the visitor of moderate neons, a -warm hoepltallty. To  lhc sportsman with rod or gun, Brit-  is* Co'.nmbla Is an earthly paradise.  Wherever he goes he "will find the  people not merely willing but anxious  to facilitate >Is pleasure, either on  flood  or  field.

The Windsor Hotel, New York, Burned  ���������Caught in a Death Trap���������Sensational Rescue ��������� Fifty Thousand  People Look On  New York, March IS.���������With 50,000  holiday merry makers looking on.  the Windsor hotel, at tho corner of  Forty-Sixth street and Fifth avenue,  was swiftly consumed by flra yesterday afternoon. One hour sufficed for  its complete effacement. It. is known  that there ha6 been a loss of not less  than 15 lives. The firs also injured  not less than 40 men and women. Tho  death list will doubtless run into  scores when the ruins are explored.  The flre was discovered at 3:20 p.m.  and at 4:20 the walls fell, and with  their collapse ended the history of  thli death trap, which for years has  bc-en disguised as a fashionable haven  of safety. The dames originated from  the igniting of laco curlains.and burst  forth from , the second floor shortly  afler 8 o'clock",just as the St. Pattick's  day parade was passing the building,  and in a few moments thoy had leaped  up to the roof and enveloped the cn-  tlie Fifth avenue and Forty-Seventh  street fronts of the hotel. All means  of escape by way of stairways and  elevators were cut off and there was  the wildest scene of excitement within and without tho building.  Fireman Curry, on top of a ladder  at the fourth story, hatl a lady jump  ftom the sixth story to his shoulder  and rescued her.  John Foy, a waiter, -ays that a  gi.est lighted a cigarette and carelessly threw the match- aside igniting  some lace  curtains.  By 1:30 this morning 14 bodies had  been recovered. Twenty-six are missing and  60  injured.  A physician and a lawyer occupying rooms in the same large down-  lown building met not long ago in tho  lobby, says the Chicago Tribune. The  lawyer only hos had his shingle out  [,ix months, while the physician has  been practicing for many years. Con-  eequciitly the physician Is inclined to  use a condescending man ner toward  the young lawyer and the young  lawyer respects the physician as a  man who has made his mark.  "You should dn something for that  cold," tho physician suid.  "What'.'" naked the lawyer respectfully, from force of habit.  The physician made u tew remarks  nbout the treatment of colds as tbey  rode up iu tlio elevator. The other  day the lawyer received o. bill for  "servicer, rendered him"'by lho phynlc-  !;ui. lly this time he hud forgotten  that he ever had u cold or that he hud  met the physician and listened lo advice on colds because il is polite to do  so. AVilh the bill in his hand he  s'jught out lho physician, who explained the matter, saying he need  not pay It at onco unless it was convenient for him. Not wishing to make  an enoiny of tho young lawyer, ho  cultics for half an hour, drawing tho  young man out and giving him u  chance to talk. The next day the  physician received a check for ?1 in  payment of the bill sent the young  lawyer, accompanied hy a bill with  the lawyer's name across the top,  v-hich called for ?10 for half an hour's  consultation the day before. The  physician promptly paid.  eon  ot  -ammmmmmmmnimmmmmmmmmmmtmmmmK  1   THE MOLSONS BANK   1  5___ iNCOItl'DKATIilJ  UY ACT (IK  PAW.! ..WENT, 1835.

Tolcher. the Bard of Banff. This  volume was turned loose two years  ago and its importance as a literary  masterpiece may be guaged from the  fact th-.it it. has taken the Tribune  ciitic all that time to master Us contents lieTore venturing to write an exhaustive i eviow. The prominence  that has lately been given to Tolcher's  effort*; in various prominent publications in tho North AVest has had due  effect. His genius is at last recognized in the cast. As North "Westerners  wo foel deeply gratified at the appreciative tone of the Tribune's article.  At lor quoting one exceptionally lino  stanza, t.-hich runs:  V.'llh link and throttle open wide.  Through  smoke  aud   fire   the   engine  Hied;     ..  'I he iron steed just. 'rive*i in time,  The howling flamea lel't far behind���������"  The writer says, "Whilo Mclntyre was  in'his day considered thc Shakespeare  of Canada,- Tolclior, we imagine,  can  never rise above Lord Byron's level."  This, though at first sight rather hard  ou Tolcher, is just and discriminating  praise.    Some   critics   in   their   blind  enthusiasm   would   have   placed   him  ahead of Shakespeare.     The man who  wrote   these   magnificent   lines.  "Tbe    train     arrived    at     Winnipeg  station,  immigrants scattered Car and wide;  Some stop a whilo on this occasion,  Before they journey on their ride."  is no common man. Were Tolcher  lo fall sick, Che whole world would  direct its eyes'.towards Banff. Tho  Cerman Emperor wouid wire eiiquir  ies, coupled wilh expressions of ad-  r. iration for bis genius; tho greatest  of the world would wait with  anxiety for tlie latest bulletins; hundreds of callers would besiege his  hotel, and thousands of" decks cf cards  Mould be left with the clerk. The  world would stop revolving to keep  liis be:l still, and the sun  shine warmly for the Bard of Banff  until I.e was able to sit up in his  Ltd and ear chicken broth. Glory  nnd honor be to Tolcher who by hi"*,  i-arvelicus poems ha? succeeded tn  bringing Banff into touch ' with tho  "Winnipeg Tribune.

It has been said that the modern  young man literally cuts but a poor  figure when he "takes the floor," and,  despite the fact that fancy daneing  l������as been quite recently t fashionable  craze, lt cannot be justly maintained  that the modern girl displays the grace  in the ball room es her mother and  grandmother before her. That young  men are positively awkward nowadays is not the least bit surprising.  In the first place they get but little  practice, it is practically by main  force lhat they are dragged into the  middle of the ballroom.

Jn consequence Ri'velstoku  pos-scssos in ils llrst council a boaid of  Ui-iiu'.-s men whom we can safely  trust to manage our atTairn m ii bu.i-  nei.s way.  Tin* lirst subject whi'.-li will engage  the ali'-nlion of llu- i-ily fathers will  doubtless be tbo appointment nf (he  j-ity olliciuls. In Ibi' opinion of the  UlillAt.n it is a bud system, though  soiiii'tinies   adopt I'd   in   tin- supposed  inl crests of eci n.v.  In  roiuliine  too  iiiaiiy of llu.'se oflii i's in one person. At  all events whar. ever plan is adopted  the position of treasurer siicmlil be  kept separate and il bas been found an  excellent idea in other places to vest  this office in the person of one of the  managers of the local banks. The  appointment naturally will carry with  it the city busines'*, and il will be  found that Ihero will be very little  diiliculty at getting it .-.cicpled at an  almost nominal salary.  Another system, which will save  trouble by being adopt ed from lbe  start, is that of a monthly audit ol* Unhooks made by a competent, acciiui'-l  .-mt. This will ensure lhat the book-,  are kept up constantly in good cirdi-i  and up lo date and the monthly repoi !.-���������  being first presented to the council ai.d  then published in the newspaper reports of the proceedings will ki.'i>  both the council and the public constantly posled on the financial cmi-  dition of municipal 'iffairs.  There are other matters which will  demand immediate attention, sue-  the routing of a suitable  city office and council chamber.  However from the make-up of tin*  council the Hkiiald feels satisfied thai  these questions and all others which  come up before them will be deal,  with in a manner which will du  justice and give satisfaction to the  entire community.  Mrs. Lee has put on some improvements lo Ihe front of her store on  McKenzie avenue.  The pastor will occupy the pulpit in  the Methodist church both morning  and evening tomorrow.

The Enstor dinner and concert to be  given in the Methodist church on  JMondav, the 3rd of April, promises to  be a very successful affair.

The    I-liiitALD     congratulates    the  Conservatives   of Itevelstoke on    the  very     successful   formation   of   their  association here.    Organization is  the  soul of political success and  the  work  of getting lhe pai ty  in  shape  is  now  iroiug on all  over the  Dominion.    In  Kootenay the result of these elforts  has    been     particularly     gratifying.  Strong associations have been  formed  in   Nelson,  Rossland.  Sandon.  Kaslo.  Silverton,     Slocan   City    and    Three  Folks, and committees in New Denver^  Nakusp,  Ainsworth,  Cranbrook,  Fernie. Vniir.  Golden  and Donald.   The  veiy large association  formed  hereon  Thursday night is a fitting climax  to  the. work in Kootenay.    As far as  the  riding is concerned Conservatives only  need   organization   to carry it.     The  chief aim  of the   association   at   this  point should be to eoinplete  the  work  already   done   by  getting the    party  organized and in touch with  it in   the  outlying   points   around   us.      Kvery  r-lTort possible.should be  put forth  in  this direction and it is in this particii7  lar that tl-.e chief value of the association will show itself.    If it can  only  lonk after this part of  its  work  propel ly   the   success   of   a   Conservative  candidate for this electoral  district at  the next election  is  certain  as   far as  this riding is concerned.  .-.iilli-cji'.r e.i ni Treasurer.
