THE RAILWAY SITUATION  In its last issue the Hekald published 1111 interview with G. McL.  Brown, of the Canadian Pacific. Railway Company, touching upon the  railway situation in Kootenay generally. The IIeuald is quite in  accord with the principle of Canada  for Canadians. We want to see Kootenay ores smelted in Kootenay and we  want to see Kootenay business transacted in Kootenay cities and towns.  We have helped to build up Spokane  quite sufficiently already to offset  anything Spokane enterprise has done  to take hold and develop this district.  There is- no necessity to make that  place the business capital of Koolenay  altogether. And the Hkrald believing that the sole aim and object of  t.he promoters of the proposed Kettle  river road is -to turn the business of  the Boundary country iuto Spokane  pockets has no wish to see them  granted their charter. There is no  doubt that this'is the. light in which  the scheme is regarded by the Spokane  people themselves, and while the  Herald has no quarrel with Iheni for  reaching out for all the trade territory  in sight, it does not wish to see them  get it at the expense of the cities of  this province.  But the C.P.R. has the game ih their  own hands. Only so far tliey-have  given' it' away by trying to fight  Spokane from Vancouver. They can  cut Spokane out and build up  distributing point for Kootenay at any  time they like,to begin, by making a  terminal freight rate point right in  Kootenay itself, here at Revelstoke  for that matter, if tliey want to. As  far as the" present fight with the Corbin  road is concerned the C.P.R. has the  Herald's sympathies, but a great  deal of the necessity for fighting Corbin titall for the trade of the Boundary  dislrict has arisen.from the vacillating,  halfhearted policy which the C.P.R.  itself has up to quite recently adopted  to the development of the Kootenay  country and trade as a whole. If the  C.P.R. chose to set itself to do.so they  could build up a wholesale distributing  centre right here, ln the middle of  West Kootenay, because in ten years  from now the mineral district north of  the C.P.R. main line will he quite as  important as that To tfie soulli-df'itT  which would close Spokane out  entirely.    And   it  would   be   to   the'  them ont. They can build up any  point they wish as 11 distributing  centre for Kootenay, or lhey can. as at  at present, make a present of the  Kootenay trade to Spokane. It seems  to tlie; Hkiiald a little unreasonable  forthe C.P.R. to bo complaining ef  the pro-eminence of that city in Kootenay trade or the grasp of the American Smelting Trust for Kootenay ore.  when they have only to set themselves  seriously to work in 01 dor to destroy  both, if they wish it.  RICH STRIKE ON THE NETTIE L  Thsee Inches of Grey Copper Uncovered  in the Winze, Giving About 3,000  Ounces to the Ton.  Tt is reported in Ferguson that in  sinking the winze at the end of the  crosscut tunnel on the Nettie L, three  inches e)f seilid grey copper was struck  which is estimated" to run as higlvas  3,000 oz. in silver to the ton. The  owners are jubilant over the wonderful showing made by this properly  under deve'lopment anel are confident  that it will be at the top of lhe Lardeau mines as soon as it is properly  opened up.

We have plenty of stumps to  extract anel town property to clear.  Why not enlarge our jail or arrange  at any rate to get the labor expended  in Revelstoke. The chain gang is a  thing the modern stiff is dead leary of  and besides onr landscape scenery  would be much improved. At present  all we get is a hard name for sending  so many over to Kamloops.  ���������  A serious accident may he looked  forward to at any time if the ladies, or  even gentlemen, insist on rieling hikes  upon the high sidewalk leading to the  C.P.R. station, and, besides, thc bath  which awaits one on either side would  be very unpleasant.  The early closing movement is a go.  All hands have decided to belikeother  great cities and adopt the early  closing plan.  We understand that there are only  147 applications in for the position t>f  city police up to this meeting, but of  course there is plenty of time yet.  The Canoe river natural Rtipply  point in Revelstoke. Is Mr. Kellie  going to turn a hand to help us win it?  Are the merchants .working hand in  hand to gain it or is there anything  being done except to criticize the  other fellows for heing so dead to their  own interests.-  advantage of the whole disti ic.t to have  such a trade centre established, instead  of having a dozen little points, none of  them amounting to- anything, except  as convenient targets for Spokane  enterprise. That is the real way to  fight Spokane and the only way in  whicli it ever will be done to complete  satisfaction.  With regard to the smelting industries of Kootenay, if the C. P. R. will  make it pay mine owners to smelt  their ores in Kootenay, they will he  smelted in Kootenay nnd the manufacture of lead and copper products  may reasonably be expected to follow  the smelters. For the market question, when the Dominion government  ceases contemplating Ontario, find  Quebec as the sun anil moon of,.the  pol'.tical firmament and pays some  attention to the development of the  resources of this province, a market,  the coming market of the world, the  greatest market in tho worlel lies at  our very doors in lhe teeming populations of the Pacific coasts.  But on the whole situation the CP.  R. has in the picturesque language of  the west " the dead immortal cinch."  They have gone into the smelting  business and have in consequence  made other capital shy of smelters in  Kootenay as an investment. They are  in the steamboat business anel no one  else even wants to put a little boat on  the river north of their main line  because they believe with good reason  that as soon as there was anything in  it the C.P.R. would step in and squeeze  COMMITTEE  R.

Cheap Lime for Revelstoke  Capt. Robt. Sanderson left this  morning with a party of men to work  a limestone quarry and kiln on the  west, side of Arrow Lake, opposite  Halcyon Hot Springs. The limestone  is of excellent quality and there is a  ledge '10 feet wide of clean white limestone" on the quarry. Capt. Sanderson  has got good rates from the C.P.R.  and will be able to put lime down in  Itevelstoke at the same pi ice iui itis  now quoted in Vancouver. He has  appointed F.

Mr. Hamilton hael heen unwell feir  some time past anel was contemplating  taking a trip to Revelstoke. B.C.. this  spring in search of health. At Hamilton he was a prominent member of the  Masonic fraternity. Dr. McLean  starts for Belleville on Monday  next.  Board of Trade  At the meeting of the council of the  lio.-ud of trade em Thursday night.it  was decided to hold one general meet  ing of the wheile board every monlli,  on the lirst Thursday, the other nights  to be devoted to the meetings of the  council. The vacancy in the council  ciuiseel by the resignation of I.T.  Brewster, was fillerl up by the unanimous election of J. D. Sibbald.  Early Closing Movement  A meeting of those interested in the  ea' ly closing movement will he held  on Monday evening, the S4th inst.. in  Fire Hall No. 2.

THE LYCEUM THEATRE CO;  _______  The  Best Company * Travelling  on  the*  Road Today  Tho Calgary Heraltl has  the follow- -  ingtos-iy of  the  above'li-iuied  com--  puny who are  billed   to  play  in  Tap--  ping's  opera_ honse. here  four,nigl 11s__ .  commencing Wednesday  night,  nextr?"  It wus indeed asm-prise to a Calgary  audience to see a play presented in the.-  way in   which  Othello  was pi educed  by the"Lyceum company at lbe  opera  house last night. Jlany people thought  that an   intelligible     and     enjoyable  presentation     of     Shakespeare     was  beyond  the  capabilities  of any  com- -  paiiy which would visit  Calgary,   but  they were much  mistake))  and'today  thu   warmest  praise  of   llie Lyceum  company is to be heard on every hand.'  Every   part showed  much   care   and  study, and though of course some nf  the characters differed   from   the1 pre-,  conceived   notions    of   some    of this  audience,     there     was      consistency  ihioughoul which made the play most  interesting.  Miss Marguerite Lorimer won everybody's heart with her simple sweetness  and graceful acting as Dcselcmon.a.  The title role was played by- Edouard  D'Olze. Of course Othello, bus been  portrayed by so many great actors,  that whosoever assays U,he part in  these days has to bear a considerable  amount of criticUm. Mr. D'Olze came  through the ordeal with'flying colors;  he is possessed of a line voice, though  in the third act he had a tendency "to  strain it. Othello was u finestudy anel  deserves the highest praise, but in the  act just mentioned we think Mr.  D'Olze could make an improvement in  the part if he would save his voice a  little. Leland Webb's Tago was rather  a new reading to many but it was consilient throughout, and .was a fine;  piece of acting. Brabant io should  receive a woril of praise for a well  played though small part. Edgar  Keller was Brahantin anil we are gl.ul  to see that he wiil be seen in a bis  part tonight when he plays Colonel  Preston in Alabama. Miss Rose Cameron was excellent as Emilia. Ingo's  wife, acting with much dignity and  1-ioking splendid.-  Cassto was well taken -by Douglas  Paterson. William Colvin deserves  mention for his Roderigo.  Tlie d 1 esses weie very handsome nnd  the staging beautiful." We have no  room to give a fuller criticism than  this, or we shoulel have a great de������al  more to say in praise or the Lyceum  company, for it is .by far thc best  theatrical company that has visited  C.-ils^ry for years, and the thanks of  the theatie going public are due to the  cricket club for their enterprise in  bringing such a good thing to the  town.  ir*$ ���������]  -.  r  ;_  Revelstoke   Herald  PnbHshed In Interests o  Rerelitoke.

The startling paragraph that is going  the rounds of the press to the effect  that President Faure, so far trom  having died within the precincts of  the Champs Elysee Palace, breathed  his'last in the apartments of Madame  Horel, d, variety actress, is a  choice morsel for jaded newspaper  readers, but Is scarcely a fit piece of  historical information to bo Incorporated in ihe school books of that  country. Another groat French  statesman, Gambetta. died wlch remarkable suddenness in Paris about 13  yearB ago, and while all Franco was  mourning his loss, it oked out that he-  had been shot by an exasperated laely  friend.

SOUTHERN  DEVELOPMENT  Comparatively few residents of  Alberta ouslde of the district Immediately concerned have any Idea of  the magnitude of tho irrigation work  which is now being carried on in  Southern Alberta. A main ditch CO  miles long" Ib being constructed for  the irrigator: ot a tract of land a  halt a million acres in area. The  water supply will be taken from tho  St, Mary's river at a point near the  mountains and six miles north of thc  international boundary. The St.Mary's  is a strong aud swift flowing stream  capable of supplying sufficient force  and volume ofwater to make thc  canal itself a good sized stream. Tho  ditch will open up and make available for agricultural purposes an enormous tract of land which has hith-  . erto been practically of no value. The  Irrigation company, which is composed of members of the Mormon colony  at Cardston, proposes to construct the  work bv Bormo nlabor, and it is said  ~tEat���������Eo-Ies"s"tfiari���������_00<PM6i~moris_ar'e  comlng in from Utah for the purpose.  The workers will be rewarded for  their service with grants of land in  the ������rea to be irrigated by the ditch  a fact which should be a great iu  ducement   to   intending   settlers.  The action of the town, of Lethbridge in granting a bonus of  $30.00.0 to the company will bo generally approved.

"There can scarcely bo a doubt that the  treatment; of Washington's last illness by  thc doctors was lilllo short of murder,''  says Mr. Paul Ford in "Tho Trim George  Washington." Those wero tho days of the  "kill or euro" treatment, when strong  plasters, jalap and blooding, tho universal  remedies, loft littlo hopo for patients who  could uot withstand both drugs and dis-  easo.  Professor Je\bn Fisko writes in his "Old  Virginia nnd. Tier Neighbors" that whon  Washington ln lull vigor found thnt ho  had caught rn bad colel ho sent for tho doctors. Moiiiiwhilo bo line! half a pint of  blood taken from him by one of his over-  eoors. Of tho three physicians in attendance  one was his dear friond, tho good Scotchman, Dr. Jnmos Cralk. His collcriguo,  Dr. Elisha Dick, said:  "Do not bloed tho general. He nccdi  oil his strength."  His ndvico was not heeded. Threo copious bleedings followed.,in the lnstof which  a quart of blood was taken. Tho third attendant, Dr. Gustavus Brown, afterward  expressed bitter regret thnt Dr. Dick's advice was not taken. Besides this wholesale blooding'tho patient was dosed with  calomel anil tartar omotio and scarified  with blisters and poultices.  "Tho question is suggested," writes Mr.  FIsko, "if Washington had lived a dozen  years longer, would thoro have beeu a sco-  onel war with Kngland?"  Tho heroic methods of the sovoiitconth  century, which, though killing tMusnnds,  wero continued far into tho oi^htoonth,  nre oxhibitcd by tho itoms of n -lillren-  doreel by Dr. Haelelon of York nbo~~,l~ 1006  for performing an amputation.

He? is more than a privileged servant;  he is a constant companion, sleeping  ln an adjoining chamber with so thin  a partition betwixt them that he can  hear the pope's breathing. At all  times, too, he can keep surveilance by  the- aid of a little glass window which  Js at the head of the bed, while by  means of a telephone he Is ln communication with Prof. Lapponi, the doctor,  vho lives out of the Vatican.  Besides the eminent physician there  are- two assistant doctors who live In  the palace and have the care of the  health of the 500 souls comprising tlie  population of the Vatican. In tho  duys of Pius IX there were many, moro  who made their abode there.  By an arrangement between the  uollce and the Vatican authorities a  window next the papal apartments Is  feint open during the day and closed at  Mleht with a lighted lamp behind it  The shutting of the window during tho  day. or tke putting out of the lamp,  means that something unusual han  happened and that help la required.  When the pope Is 111. this singular si*n  would mean that he Is dead. An  Italian sentinel Is constantly watching  this window.

Here is how the New Denver Ledge  in its characteristic rasmon assays  the Martin-Semlln-Cotton government.  "Tbe British Columbia government  is located at Victoria and can be  traced as far as Vancouver. It is  plainly visible ������������������during the winter  months, and its brains can occasionally be seen by the aid of a mogul  X ray. It works for Joe Martin as  well as the downtrodden taxpayer. It  aims to cut down everything and believes that the devil should take care  of all the supporters of the late Turn'  er government. It has not yet heen  snowslided by public opinion or raid  ed'by the. victims of cheap salaries  It has not stood tbe test of time, but  its paystreak-of economy is growing  wider. lit is a cheap government  no one should be without it Go in  and see it when you reach Victoria  but do not tell them that you saw this  article, or they might borrow your  paper to save a nickel."

We heard the familiar notes of tbe  robin sinne* weeks ago, but it lakes  niore! than one robin to make summer,  and lie.w, added to llie: song of the  Iiii iK ' we hear the croak of the  Canadian . nighthiKHle from the  swamps aroimil us.

P.i-\sing on Lo other subjects, one  important item of recent news which  will prove a great, factor in the future  civilization of the world, is the successful outcome of id) interview held  lately between Cecil Rhodes, the  empire builder, and the kaiser of  Germany. The result has been to  bring about a good understanding  between tbe Lwo foremost nations nf  the world, and the* completion of an  Anglo-German agreement for realizing  at an early elate' Mr. Rhode's pet  scheme of an all Lhrough lino of railway between Cape Colony unci Cairo,  on tlie Nile.  That, along with the establishment  of a nnivi'i-sity at Kliartoun in memory nf General Gordon, and tin* coi.-  strnction of an immense: dam on the  river Nile, by which thousnnels of  acres of lanel will be reclaimed anel  made available fnr agricultural purposes by means nf irrigation, will all  prove valuable f:������ tors in Ihe civilization of lhe dark continent.  A gie.it deal of public curiosity  is felt ri-garding the American policy  of   colonial   expansion. It   is   very  questionable how far Uncle Sam has  act eel with prudence in meddling with  thu Filipinos���������t.he he-iter opinion being  that the U. S. will have a white elephant rn thi ir hands. What* with  heavy taxation, owing to national  indebtedness, and the. yet slumbering  antagonism between tb" north ar.d  south and tlie alreaely increasing  buielens (naval anel military) on Ihe  population of the Republic, fears arc  cuteitiiincd of a piobable: dissolution  of the union.  The system) oT government in vogue  in Lhu U.S. has in it the elements of  weakness and dissolution Such, al,  least, is tlie opinion publicly expressed  by our parliamentary authority. Sir  John Bonrinot. who is looked to with  respect by both political parlies in  Canada. Coming nenrer home, wc  have several grave question.-! demanding careful solution���������such as senate  reform, prohibitory legislation on the  liquor traffic, imperial unity and the  expansion of trade between Great  Britain and the colonips. It is to he  hfipeel that the national and imperial-  is! ic interests wil! not be sacrificed on  the shrine of mere political paitisnn-  ship.  P. C. S.  J. P. Wallace writes for the Baker  City Republican some steiling truths  concerning mines and their value. He  says:  " Even with the best of management  it is an exceptionally good prospecL  that will pay cost of development.  ������������������Prospecting should lm a business to  itself and those engaged ill it should  be educated and trained for the work.  Prospecting companies would do well  to equip and scudj into the field only  those who have a practical and comprehensive knowledge of geology,  rock, vein formation, faults, ores,  minerals ar.d assaying.  "Pay ore is ore that -will leave  profit after mining, milling. Lranspor-  tilion and other expensesaru deducted  from the average', saving. Qre is saiel  to be'in sight'when it-is blocked out  into patches of moderate size and  exposed to view on three sides. If one  side only of the ore body is shown no  ore can be counted, but where Lwo  aeljoining sides are exposed to view  a triangular body may be* safely calculated as 'in sight.' A single tunnel  driven through ore for a considerable  distance, but with no openings in the  floor or roof, affords only presumptive  evidence of (lie continuance of the ore  body much above or below the tunnel.  " Mining properties of all kinds are  valuable only for the ore they contain.  " If the ore is too low grade to pay  or is in quantity too" small for profit*  able working, "the mine* has no real  value; so. also, if the property- is undeveloped and shows no ore 'in sight'  it has no real or true value. Surface  ore exposures are valuable only for  what Lhey promise or for what they  are supposed to reveal. The revelations of outcrops are differently interpreted by different persons;  there is no infallible: guide to their  meaning. Herein is the element eif  risk in the pure-base of prospects. It  is different wilh ore 'in sight.' A  property is always worth the net value  of ore blocked out, plus its presumptive of estimated value. The latter is  the value of ore which may be found  beyond the present, working and which  is supposed to be available for mining.  The estimated value is to be determined by the; geological conditions of  tlie the. mine, as well as of the district  in general, and is largely a question of  opinion. .���������  '��������� Following are some of the factors  to be considered in deciding a mine's  value and its ability to pay a profit,  viz Purchase price, production, Limber or coal supply, waler for mill and  power purposes'] railroad f.-icilitit-s,  roads, altitudes, climatic conditions,  living expense's, wages, mine and mill  managenii-iL, location of properly,  chin iiclcr anel value of ore, freight  rates, ore markets, smelting facilities  and Ihe probable: life of Lhe mine.  '���������Frequent i-reisscutling is of the  utmost iinportnnce Lo successful mining. Ore bodies eepially as good or  betcer than lhe one being wen-keel, are:  by this procedure nol infrequently  encountered. Grossents have often  revealed the existence of nm _. or more  parallel veins. Sheet veins and link  vein, have thus been* discovered.  Immense      chambers      of aggre  gate deposits tlie: existence of wliich  had never been suspected, have been  opened up by crosscutting. Every  mineral-stained scam en- decomposed  porl ion e.f a vuin wall should'ne looked  upon wilh suspicion, carefully examined and possibly drifted on.  '��������� The age of rock tormation in itself  considered is not material lo the  disposition nf valuable ore deposits.  Formerly lhc oldest rocks weie  thought to be lhe only bearers of true  mineral veins, but the occurrence of  many such veins in the younger rocks  has taught us that the chief innditioiw  giiverningjOre depositions are entirely  independent of the age of rocks uud  that no formations are excluded from  ori'-bpiii-inp possibilities.  " Tiie following an* localities favorable; for the occui rence and discovery  of mineial veins*, viz: Wh'-ro the  strata have been upheaved, folded and  fractured; when- dike   and   intrusive,  wweTOeP'  m  0������  m  m  m  m  m  IM  P  si  " Jhe Leading Store  " No Bluster, Xo Fuss, Just Business, That's All."  uwm @f wrm\  " ��������� TO   K]@US11IH1(3  99  ������i  We have just placed in slock a direct importation  of ART MUSLINS, PLAIN AND FANCY  SCRIMS, WINDOW MUSLINS, ART COTTON, ART SATEENS, CRETONNE, FURNITURE COVERING, LACE CURTAINS,  Etc., all al very reasonable prices.
