TO THE CANOE RIVER  INTERESTING ACCOUNT OF THE  NAVIGATION OF THE  RIVER  REVELSTOKE TO CANOE RIVER  A Distance of One Hundred and Five  Miles���������Vivid Description of Death  Rapids Canon���������Two Steamers Required Connected at This Point bj *?.  Short Tramway���������A District Rich in  _ Mineral and Timber Waiting Development.  The following account of lhe navigation of the Oohunbia, river is extracted from a report furnished tbe  Dominion Public Work.*) Department  of a trip around from Beaver to Revelstoke made during the hitter part of  April, 1891, at ������. low stage, of water,  by R. Gamble,'the resident engineer  at Victoria:  " From Cunoe river to Death Rapids  Canon, there are no serious obstacles  to navigation by a 'powerful stern-  wheel steamer, other than strong  fifties, :whieh can , be - overcome by  lining up with a strong capstan, lt.  would not be possible to inipiove any  of them by artificial means, except iit  a great expense and even,tben permanent success would be.doubtfiil.  -The cation itself is very crooked and  nair'ow, tlie wall'iock being rugged  and almost ^perpendicular from the  water's edge, very" strong' riffle's or  rapids, increasing_ in velocity, being  fiecjueiit with dangerous eddies'and  boils on either side at "the lower enel.  On entering the canon the river gorges  from 500 to 200 leet, in" lae-t is turned  on edge, while at" Death Rapids itself  the width is still further reduced to  100 feet. This sudden contraction is  caused by two roekslid. s, on the right  above the crest, while theotlier comes  down from the bluff'on the left a little  lower clown. It-is easily understood  after viewing' this pliirc. wherein its  danger lies. The* "great- volume- of  water is suddenly, obstructed and  thrown against the rock wall on the  left and is theie piled up, rushing  through Uie narrow channel in heavy  eiuTnig swells, in which no "ordinary  boat could live, lt has never been  attempted by a steamer.' To improve  it would require the lemovalof both  the slides mentioned, a very difficult,  dangerous and costly pieces of-work,  but it is" a question whether the  removal of these, while iinpiiiving  Death ltapids pioper, would not have  the opposite elfeet on the liver above,  perhaps rendering it impassable for  either boats or steamboats. The  gorging of the river at this point, has  the effect of backing the river up,  thus partially eliminating tlie dangei--  ous-places abo~v~.e._lfjtt_������ny future time  Gamble speaks of tbe abundance of  timber, apparently of Rood quality,  hemlock, spruce and cedar, along the  banks from Kinbasket lake to Canoe  river, of which the outlet to market is  of course down lo Itevelstoke.  MURDER AT CRAHBROCK  Tcrrance R7. n, of   Montreal, Murdered  by an Italian  VAKtoaviiis. Mm eh 31.���������Woi d bus  been received here from Cranbi-ook. on  lhe Crow's .Nest Pass railway, that  Terrance Ryan, of Montreal, has been  murdered there. It is supposed that  the* crime was committed by an Italian  who mistook the murdered man for a  countryman, with whom he bad a  row.  Et.KO, B.C., March 30.���������The Italian  and bis companion who murdered  young Ryan at Cranbrook, B. C,  while attempting to escape to the  United States, were, arrested todny by  Constable Barnes and Frank McVitty,  and Constable Enas Campbell. The  constables followed them day and  night after the murderers left Cranbrook.  FERGUSON.  NEWS  FROM   THE  DEAU.  BUSY, LAR-  A   VERY   PROMISING   GAMP.

THE PROSPECTOR'S  EXCHANGE  ON FIRE  . Glengarry  The owners of the Glengarry have  given a contract to ,Watts' Diamond  Core Drill to sink GOO feet of prospect  shafts on the lead, in 6. places. 100 feet  in each,.  the development of the output of the  mines and forests in this section of the  province" demands cheap and ra|~ji'i  ti'Hiispeirtntion. then a sti'iiiijet-'should  lie put on the river above Death  Ripids .ind another below, connection  between the two to be uiiide by wagon  road or tramway. This woultl not be  in nib longer than 2J or 3 miles.  Between Downie creek and Revelstoke there are places where a steamer  would run no inconsiderable risk. I  refer piuticiilarly to the Little C.inun,  situated about six miles above Kevelstoke. This canon is about 1G00 feet  long, straight, but narrow, with  jagged, 'perpendicular wall rock on  both sides. At the upper end, 011 the  left, there is a, sunken rock, which  would doubtless cause a most dangerous eddy at a higher'stage of water.  (This rock has since been u-moved).  Above the Canoe up to Downie creek  there are 11 great many rapids which a  steamer would have senile difficulty in  making without lining, especially ut a  low stage of water. What tbey may  be at high water I cannot say.  There can be no doubt that the Big  Bend country, that is the countiy  traversed by the* Columbia river north  of the railway, is again attracting the  attention of miners and it only needs  cheaper transportation than at present  obtains, that is by pack trains at'd  boat, to increase the oul put of the  mines, both gold and silver, now being  developed in that section.  According to my estimate the distances following the sinuosities of the  river from llevelstoke to Canoe river  is 105 miles, Revelstoke to Death  Rapids 50, Death Rapids to Canoe  river 55. The fall from Canoe river  to the foot of Death Rapids is 220 feet,  from that point to Revelstoke 1.50."  Ir. another part- of   the report   Mr.  ing,' and bringing in* passengers iind  freight, we are as lively as at any  time last summer; let. us hope capital  will also come?hefore long, and that  the present good outlook is not only  an April fool delusion.  ilr. .T.

The facts stated by  him will probably come as a "surprise  to  most* readers.  Consumers have grown so accustomed 10 the continuous falls in the prices  of almost every article largely or Bcn-  -i-ally bought, ihat ihey are inclined  10 resard it as llie result of a natural |  ltw. The mocess hus been gradual,  r.r.d it wears many forms. Jt besun  in mosi industries, with tliu substitution of large shops for small ones. In  1I10 retail trade, Uie revolution is far  from being- complete. The small mini  tlill retains a fooiliiK. though with a  il-syeratu birujrgle. 'I'hero are still  noine small shops who keep their cus-  tom by some special excellence for  which ihey have a rupulatlon. Hue  their numbers are decreiisiny. and a  .'���������well known or v.ell advertised name"  i^ more and more laken as a auarantee  e.r quality.

Neither Croat Britain nor tho United  States does whnt Canada does, namely,  maintains n fictitious bookkeeping  system.

If Canada  s/i.'iid.- more lliiin current revenue  (and she bas done so In nine out of  eiery 10 years since Confederation) it  is nol called a deficit. Tlie loss is put  clown lo a funny thing called capital  account, which is then calmly retired  into lhe background, while the politicians come out with the rest of the  figures .ir.d shout "surplus!"

Pritchett,, superintendent of the coast  and geodetic, survey, says that the  reports from Alaska regarding the discovery of slone mounds In the Klondyke counlry, to miles east of Dawson City, are "all nonsense and rubbish." These mounds, according to  the stories telegraphed from.'-V"ictoria  and other points, ii was believed  marked thc eastern boundary of the  czar's possessions on lhe American  continent, and as the United States  succeeded by the terms of tli* treaty  of sale of JSC7 to all of the territory then -uniler Russian dominion,  therefore. Dawson City and thc wholo  Klondyke region belonged to the  United  States.  "I3v.n if the mounds were Russian  boundary mounds, which* 1 have not  the least idea they are,'* said Dr. Pritchett. "it would mean nothing regarding the boundary line between  Alaska and British Columbia���������would'  not change tho situation one iola, nor  give the United States one additional  inch of territory. By."the- treaty of  1S25 between Russia and Greal Brit-  tain, llie boundary lino between Alaska and British Columbia, from  Mount St. Elias to thc Frozen Ocean  on the north, was' fixed at lho l-Ust  degree of west longitude. When tho  United Stales bought Alaska it bough I  subject to the provisions of lhat  treaty, and the only question is one  of scientific determination of that  boundary. Tt has been located at  two points by United States surveyors, at the crossing of Yulcon River  and of Forty Milc'creclc. By that.determination Dawson Cily is 100 miles  or thereabouts east o������. the line and  that far in British- territory.  "Nothing can now alter, the fact  that the Klondyke gold region is In  British .territory." continued Dr.Prit-  chett, "but if the Russian, plenipotentiary who negotiated the treaty fixing the boundary line between Alaska  and Britiib Colombia had only stuck  to hiss original proposition the Klondyke would havo belonged lo - lhe  United States. Throughout the negotiations tho only boundary line discussed was the iHGth degree of west  longitude, and when it came to making the treaty, for some reason not  disclosed by thc correspondence relating to that document, tho Russian  consented to tho Insertion of the Hup  of the l-Ust- degree as the boundary.  That added a strip about 250 miles  wide to British territory, wherein lies  tbo rich and valuable Klondyke of  today. But the Russian of 1S25 had  no idea of- thc value of the territory  -lie-thus-surrendered.'*-"  ~ ���������"���������  BACK HOME AGAIN  PONTON" AGAIN  ���������Napanee.

Wm. Whyte Tells Them East of the  Progress of the West���������Everything  Satisfactory  -Wm.Whyte, of the C. P. R., reached  Winnipeg on Saturday after a trip  of inspection to Vancouver a.ud ovor  the western branch lines. In an Interview with a Telegram reporter Mr.  Whyte stated that his trip had been  a most satisfactory one in every, re-  specl. ' He had been particularly  pleased with the amount of trallic  bundled by the main aud branch Hi* s  iii British Columbia', and with tho  prospects of Increased trade In the  neai' future especially with tho  Kootenay and Boundary Creek districts. ��������� Of A'ancouver Mr. Whyte  spoke iu most, sanguine terms In respect to its present rapid' progress in  trade, and population, and its marked  improvement in the matter of buildings and general appearance. The  city Is especially fortunate In the matter of station accommodations, having a nine story building, and a completely roofed in enclosure making  ono of the finest station facilities and  ono of tho most Imposing structures  on the line.  Speaking ot tho Kootenay district,  Mr. Whyte said there were at present  about 50 coke ovens at work, and  50 more under construction. The  traffic is large and the new towns  on thc Koolenay branches are developing rapidly. Thc smelters are  -.'���������r-n-uiir at full capacity, and the output is likely to be increased rapidly.  A new aud"first class station will be  erected at Ricauious and many other  works of minor Importance undertaken. Ad to the reported alterations  In the Pacific steamship service Mr.  Whyte had very little to say. except  that, it would eventually conic, and  lhe .��������� Mistral ian service woulel be stip-  pil"el nv the present elegant ornament-  ; nl steamers, and nov.* first class passenger transports. It was a question  of ntic'li 'magnitude as could nol be  .vPlcd at short notice. The steamers  i Athenian and Tartar on the Klondyke  service will be continued on that route  I for Hi.' ptcsi'iit season. Llie indications  1 being that the trallic will be large..  been      up  coaxingly,  let's hear  have'nt I  11 i.s not often our friend Dr. Baldwin, ihe modern Aesculapius, who  cures the ailments of those that  di\ell in. near, at and about Wetaski-  uin. loses his good nature. A short  lime back, however, he drove in from  lhe country with a very reel face and  lire in liis eye.

"My.   my!"   murmured       the   gentle-  ir.inly      barkeep.   "you've  against something sure."  "Gr-r-r-r-r!"  "Say," said ihe g. b.,  '���������have another on me and  lbe yarn. Come now.
