P. R. Stakes���������Judge Forin Grants  an Interim Injunction Against the C.  P. R. Until May 30th.  A.Kuslo despatch of the 8th lo the  Nelson Tribune snys;  The viiih'oiid building in the Lurdpau  has already commenced to cause  complications, and the Kaslo & Slocan  people seem to hnve the hest of it.  The C.P.R. engineers surveyed their  line, as described before, entirely on  the west side of the Liirdeau river,  while the K. & S. surveyed on the  east siele. But when the C.P.R. Rang  started to clear their right-of-way  they came to a very big rock bluff,  directly in their route, which meant a  heavy expenditure either in making a  tunnel .or building several miles around  it. It was then decided to biidge  across the river anil run along the east  bank for a few miles, and then biidge  the river again back to their own side,  and so save expenditure and time.  These few miles happened however to  lie part of the K. & S. route. Hence  the departure a few days ago nf John  Hamilton Gray, chief engineer, and  Mr. Carlson, with a. gang of men,  whom they at once put to work to  grade this little piece of rond and take  eiufc the C.P.R. stakes. The O.P.R.  people again put t.heir stakes on top  of the K. & S. grade, bnt the K. & S.  enng kept going right ahead with  their.work. It is likely that the nut-  come will be that the K. & S. will  .build their short piece nnd give the.  the CP.R. running powers over it on  condition that the C.P.R. give them  running powers over the balance-of  the line, which would save the K. & B.  huilding four and* five miles of road  into Duncan City.  Owing to the scarcity of laborers at  piesent the t;.P.R. contractors tried  to hire Carlson's gang itv the Lardeau  but Carlson reciprocated hy engaging  several of the C.P.R. gang. The K.  & S. have forty men at work now, and  just as soon as active construction  commences they will putns many men  to work as*their opponents have. This  means that there will he. over two  two thousand men working in that  district this year.  Another item in the Nelson Tribune  of the same date snys: The trouble  between the rival railway companies  'Topped up in .Tuelge Form's chambers  Monday meirning, when the Kaslo  and Lardo-Dnnean Railway Company  made an application for an injunction  restraining the Canadian*Pacific -from  trespassing upon* their right-of-way  through Duncan City pass. Judg"  Forin granted an Interim injunction  restraining the Canadian Pacific Railway Company till May 30t.li from trespassing upon the plaintiff company's  right-of-way in the pass. The order is  subject, however,  to  be   dissolved   at  any time if the Canadian Pacific .company can show that the statements  contained in tlie affidavits filed nn behalf uf the Kaslo and Lardo-Duncan  are incorrect. It may he nlso varied  or extended, but until it is disposed of  iu setme manner thu Canadian Pacific  comp'inv will be unable to proceed  with the construction of its Kootenny  and Trout Lake branch as contemplated.  Harry Lindley Co.  The Harry Lindley Co. have been  playing he-re for the lust three nights.  On Wednesday, Molly, one of Lindley's  own plays was put on anil well played,  but owing to the bad weather only to  a poor house. Thursday night" the  oltl est.ahlit.hed favorite*Little Lord  Fauntleroy with Little Ethel in the  title role and Harry Lindley as Mr.  Hobbs, the New York grocer, a part  which suited him well. Last night  Byron's Om- Boys furnished Mr. Lindley with another good scope for his  powers in low comedy in the character  of Mr. Middlewick. the irascible, hut  good hearted retired bntterman. He  wns well supported by his company  and the piece was very nicely put on  indeed. Mr. Lindley has a lot of new-  scenery with him and the' pieces are  well staged. "This afternoon a Little  Ethel matinee was given at 230o'clock  with admission put down to the popular price of 10 cents, which carried  with it a chance of winning a valuable  doll. Tonight a powerful five act  play, the \Vages of Sin, will be put on  and conclude the engagement,.  Board of Trade  The executive council of the hoard  of trade met on Thursday evening.  Mr. Kellie, M.P.P., was present, hy  invitation: He was supported by the  presence of the editor of the Mail.  The time of the meeting was taken up  with the ��������� member's views on the  expenditure of the government appropriations. He thought the $4,000  voted for tbe completion e>f the canyon  wagon road would'he more advantageously spent'em building trails in the  district as the canyon was now quite  navigable. As to the required trail  from Goldstream to the mouth of  Canoe river he would offer not even  any suggestions. In the course of the  discussion, if discussion it could be  called. Mr. McCarter stated-that J.  Genelle had a steamboat on Shuswap  Lake, which he . was ready to bring  over and put ' on the river, provided  $1,000 worth of husiness was guaranteed.him.- Nothing definite came put  ofthe'evening's* talk except a vote of  thanks to Mr. Kellie for nis presence  at the meeting. , .    , **  Little Johnny.���������Pa, what do you  mean by "a thing."

TROUT   LAKE   AMD  LARDEAU  The Mining Record on the Prospects'  of Railway Construction���������The Lanark  Fiasco Might Yet be Retrieved.  Next to the Boundary Creek district  probably no section of British  Ceiltim-  11:11 has  greater  uueleveloped  mineral  potentialities thnn Trout l^ake and the.  Lardeau.   The Silver Cup Hnd  olher  mines   in    that  district  from  which  from time to time small consignments,  of high grade ore  have  he'en   made to  the  smelters,   are   now   in  advanced  stages of development,   and  adequate  transportation     facilities    alone    are-,  required   to   bring   the   dislrict.   into-  prominence.    It   is,    therefore,   satisfactory to be able to state that nppar-.  ently there is every prospect that the  C.P.R. stimulated by the project  of a  rival company, will this summer com-,  mence the construction of the contemplated branch line to Trout Lake from  Arrowhead.     All    last  year  survey. -  parties were in the field, and'a feasible.  route into this district, preaenting.but.  few engineering  difficulties,  was discovered.     The    only  section   of the  proposed line, so far as we can  learn,  that will  he" at  all  exceptionally   expensive tn build, is a rocky  bluff near  Thompson's Landing, the cost of  tun-,  neling and blasting Mt this point being  estimated at 8100,000 per mile.   But as .  the    bluff    only   extends   for  three-  quarters of a  mile  or  thereabouts,   it  can hardly be  considered   as   a   very  formidable obs-trnction  in   the way oC  the undeitaking.    Meanwhile notor.lv-  will this   proposed   railway^ prove  of.,  incalculable benefit to the mine owners.  of Tront Lake  and Lardean districts'  and open up a vei-y promising section  of the country, but. it  will  also  facilitate travel and traffic betweeu  Revelstoke and Rossland  lo   a   very   great _  degree.   At present no less than eight \  changes are made between  these  two  places, but when a railway  is built to  Lardeau, the only transfer  will  he afc,  this   point  over   Kootenay   Lake   to  Kuskonook.    Apropos   of the Trout4  Lake mines it is lo be mentioned with*  regret thnt one or two of the London  financial papers are   still harping on *  the   almost   worn-out  string    of  the.  Horne-Payne mismanagement.     The.  Lanark fiasco was   bad   enough, .it is-'"  true, but one would have thought that  by this time it was sufflcieully'Hncienc  history   to   be.   forgotten.     However,.  since the matter  is  again   being   discussed, we   may  say  "this much.  that,  while Mr. Horne-Payne was undoubtedly guilty of gross extravagance  in  many -.ways,  the premature   erection.,  of the-concentrator  at'th"e  Lanark'  mine was a matter for which be can.  hardly be blamed. _ If a man  engages  the services of a mining engineer;and .  deliberately disregards  the advice or*,  opiuion  he receives,   he   must suffer.'  the consequences, and accept the full  responsibilities of" his action.

"Canada  has  many  peculiarities  of.  a   spoiled, child,   and   ventures' upon  many  manifestations  of   these  pecu-1  llarltles,  that woultl  not  be attempted  but for trust in the protection of  the motherland.

The  Impossibility of the coercion  ot  75,000,000   people   by   5,000,000   people  is  not  understood.

These ��������� i-oomnienda-  tions  were;   1st,  that a lady  teacher  be added to thc staff of missionareis  to   lhe   Chinese   on   the  coast.   2nd,  I that n new school bulldiug be erected, anil ard, that ii Chlneso catechism  be sent to the Chinese in the Kootenny.  The report ou church life and  work, prepared by Kev, Geo. Wilson, Vernon, was rend. The report  was very full and contained sovor-  til very Important recommendations  the discussion of wmch occupied the  attention   of   Synod   for   considerable  time.  Tho main  reports of tho afternoon  were, 1st that of   the camuiltteo  appointed   to   consider   tlio   advisability  of the Assembly's  preparing and au-  thorixing  a  book  of  forms   for  family,   social  and  public   worship:   2nd,  that   upon   augmentation     presented  by Hev. J. C. Herdman, aud 3rd that  upon Manitoba college given by Hev  A. B.   Winchester.  These   reports 'fully   considered.  A very   important  matter  was  thc  approval  of  a  scheme  to   publish    a  paper  in  the  interests  of the church  in   the   west,   with   headquarters , at  Vancouver.     Provisional   committees  were   appointed     and   congregations  may expect  to   receive copies of  the  first issue shortly.  The evening meeting was well ''.attended' and aroused as much interest; as- the  former  meetings.  Rev.   A.   li.  Winchester  was      the  first   speaker  of   the   evening.      His  aim  was  to   show      the  inllucnce  of  Christian   character   in   regenerating  , tho  world.    At  the day  of  pentecost  the   followers       of      Christ   counted  themselves   by   tens,      now   they  are  numbered      by    milions.  ���������   Wherever  that leaven  of  Christianity has been  at work, there is  prosperity and  social   religions.   Wlierver   this   leaven  has become dead, there is failure and*  misery.    Look  at   Spain,  he   said,   in  Armada   times,       wilh   its   4u,uuu,000  people,  its  wealth and  glory.      Look  tu  it  today   with   its   17,000,000      of.  poor   despairing   people.   They -know  God  then;   now  they  have  lost him.  Mr.   Winchester   closed  a   line  and  powerful   address   and   an   appeal   to  parents  to   train   their, children      in  the  knowledge  and lovo of Christ.  Rev. .1. A. Logan, clerk of thc  Synod spoke of the necessity, of training children with a view to thc  deep responsibilities of life. His  address was a plea for character in  young people. This was to be found  not in putting on externals of Christ-  not | i'lnity but in imbibing the spirit- of  ils   founder,   Jesus   \_.nrist.  W.   H.   Moodie,  of  Kaslo,   followed  with a very interesting and vivid account   of   the   work   and   life  of      a  mining  eiamp.      In   Kaslo,     he   said,  thero were ihrce churches and 17 saloons,  aud  Kaslo was  a model  mining town,    in no other parts havo thc  young to show moro backbone. There  are   two   centres   of   inliuenco,      tho  church   and  th'e  saloon.   A  man  has  to stand by the ono or .drift'.into the  other.    There,  is  no   half   way   place.
