Your special correspondent after  visiting the properties of the Carnes  Creek Consolidated Gold Alines  Limited, a report of which appeared  in a recent issue of your paper, paid a  visit to the Standard Group and  thoroughly inspected these properties.  He afterwards had an interview with  Mr. Geo. W. Beach, the managing  diiector of the company, which owns  these properties, who very kindly fiir:  uished him with details of the work  whicli he contemplates doing on these  claims. ,  The Standard Group is owned by  the Boston and British Columbia  Copper Mining and Smelting Co.  whose head office for this Province is  Revelstoke. Tlie properties consist of  the Standard, Criterion. Black Bear.  Iron Chest, Contractor, Monitor and  Iron Hill mineral claims. The company also hold an option bond on the  Winnebago and Commander, adjoining mineral claims. They comprise altogether four hundred and fifty acres  of land.  The Standard Group is situated to  the north of Carnes Creek on tho middle south fork of Downie Creek in the  Big Bend district of West Kootenay,  aud is distant from Kevelstoke tvventy-  two.miles as the crow flies and about  fifty miles by trail. Five miles of  trail above Carnes Creek has h-jen in  course of construction and will be completed next spring, thereby considerably lessening the distance by trail to  these properties1 besides being a much  easier grade than the present one.  Theionntry rock is chiefly schist,  cut by diorite dikes. In tlie schists  occur narrow bands of limestone.. The  veins are carried in or along the dikes.  As far as is known there are about,  nine veins on the property, sik of  which ate copper and gold, bearing;  the others carry arsenical iion with  gold. The copper-bearing veiiis show  large croppings. Most important,  however at present are the two., veins  known'asrllie Standard.veiifNo.-Jpand  No. 2." No. 1 is the larger and more  piomiMng of the tvvo. They are np-  pioxiimilely GO feet n pari, unci in depth  will pioliably form 'one very large  vein. Tbe 'veins, have a geneially  noi thvveBterly course ant! a dip of  about 45 degress to the mu tbeast.  The development done as yet i con-  si-is of several shoifc ciosscuL tunnels  ,ircl one .-.ljiift, about fifty leet deep.  These tunnels .mil also the shaft are  on the Standard claim. Upon the  other claims are a number of small  cut*. Thr- veins are tiaccable for long  distances, across the. ntnperty.  The Stand.ud No. 1 is a. very thick  vein showing on the croppings above  tunnel No. 1 fully twelve fct. Across  the hill near tuniu'l No. 2 it i.s more  than double of this in thickness. ,,Vein  No. 2 appears to be split near the sui-  f.ice,'Llie tluee sections of the same, in  ciosscub No. 2 show ing -i combined  thickness nf about, six feel. The bottom of t he shaft shows a good vein of  threo feet. A ! irge pari of the min-  ei'.il exposed in tho ciosscut, of No. 2  tunnel is highly mineializi'd. The  cropping and cuts on tho veins show  extensive mineralization.  The comp iny have a force of eleven  men, in charge of Messrs. Wilcox and  Rumens, working on the pioperties  and intend to.increase it to_fourteen  immediately. It. is their intention to  thoroughly develope the property.  The method pursued vvill be tunnelling  and upraising. The present No.. 3  tunnel vvill strike the vein within 30 or  40 feet, which vvill then be diifted on  westerly for about 000 feet towards*  the present Standaid shaft. A new  crosscut tunnel ha< been commenced  at it lower point, which will strike the  Standard vein at a distance of about,  375 feet.. The vein vvill then he drifted  mi westerly for about 1000 feet towards  the Standaid shaft,. The depth gained  on this lower tunnel on the dip of'the  vein nt the point of the shaft vvill be  over COO feet. Upraises vvill then he  made in the drifts on the vein to provp  the ore bodies. The cost of Ihis work  as outlined vvill be approximately  $30,000. The company liave shipped  up Iheir supplies for the winter nml it  is their intention to have at least two-  thirdtTnf this work completed Within  the next ten months.  Before launching out on this extensive work lhe company weie caieful  to obtain the very best expert opinion  on these pitiperties. They vytire  fortunate in this ipspert in securing  thp services of Mr. Leo Von Rosenberg  of New York. who. after making a  thorough examination, fully believes  in the future of-these propeities. He  states:���������'��������� The surface indications are  exceedingly favorable and itis '-fair to  expect that huge and good ore bodies  will be found in depth;"'also "I li'elieve  that with-proper" development the  propel ty wiH become a large producer, and together vvith the smelter  to be erected, when the oro supply  vvariants it', the enterprise will be a  large and well paying one" This  coming from such a sotiiee means  volumes |for the fiitinc welfare of  this mine.  It may be said here that the Boston  and British Columbia Copper Mining  and Smelting Company intend to erect  a smelter in all probability near Revelstoke, and aie at present negotiating  for.a site for the same on IheColumhia  river adjacent to ReveNtoke. If thev  .ne siicccs1-ful in.obtaining this land  the construction vvill commence next  summer. It is also thc intention of  this company to build a steamboat to  ply on the Columbia river between  Kevelstoke and Laporte, What vvith  the work nowgoingon at the Standard  at the Rosebery and at 'Laforme,  (which latter camp I shall deal with  in another issue of the Herald), "a  smelter in the course of construction  next summer at Revelstoke and a  (steamboat plying ou the upper river,  everything bids fair to see the Big  Bend district, largely developed and  more generally brought to the notice  and attention of the outside world  next season. The importance of the  steamboat item of the company's programme hus been frequently and  fori ibly discussed in the columns of  the Hekald. In my opinion it is a  project of first-class necessity to the  development of the district and one  which should receive the heartiest  support from every man of business  and common sense in Revelstoke. To  my mind the Big Bend vvill never  amount to a hill of beans until thu  steamboat scheme becomes an accomplished fact- Then the steamer will  perforin the office, which it hus  hitherto filled all over Kootenay of  pioneer transput tation, until the district develops sufficiently to bring in  the iron horse If our Boston friends-  put the steamer on, as I have no doubt  thev vvill, they will not only earn a  gord dividend on tlieir investment,  bnt should receive the support and  gratitude of everybody interested in  the progress of Revelstoke and the  development of the Big Bend district.  The Machinists' Strike.  Winnipeg papers to hand this week  confirm the opinion expressed at the  time hy the Hekald that, the decision of  the general committee to call the strike  off was the result of a consent on the  part of the C.P.R. officials to recognize  the Machinists' association and deal  vvith thnn as an organized body. At  a conference held on Friday afternoon  General Malinger Whyte announced  the recognition of the union and tiie  general committee called the strike off  at all points on Saturday at noon.  The questions involved iu the schedule  presented by the machinists were the  subject of two conferences between  the genernl committee and Master  .Mechanic Cross, who also represented  the company and was vested with full  power to negotiate vvith the men.  These meetings were held nn Saturday  evening and Monday morning, when  terms of agreement were drawn up  and signed.  The Winnipeg Telegram of Monday  says: " The happy tei initiation of the  troiible was welcome news to the citizens generally vvho have taken a deep  intetest in the contest from the first.  The men are lo be congratulated'upoii  the manner in which they have conducted their case throughout and the  action of the officials in acceding to  their demand for recognition is commended from all sides."  Smashup near Shuswap  The Kamloops Standard has the following account of the smashup at  Notch Hill a week ago yesterday :  " On Friday evening last," at 10 p. m.  a bad accident occured .eight miles  east of. Shnsvvnp. The west houiid  freight "was coming' down., the- hill,'  when one of the wheels broke and a  general smash up ensued. The way  side is now decorated with. lumber,'  cheese, glycerine and other useful .products, besides cars in such a condition  that they will have to be carried  home. iLnckily Iheie, were no lives'  lost, although Mr. GoodfellovV only  stepped off the defective car just  a second before its wheel gave - way.  Not as iiiubh damage vvas done to tlie  track as might be expected, hut trains  were delayed twelve hours."  VICTORY   AT  GLENCOE  Four Thousand Imperial Troops'  Drive Back  SIX THOUSAND OF THB BOERS  C.P.R. Shut Down on the Lardeau'Road.  The Nelson Miner of Thursday says:  " About a hundred new arrivals have  lome to Nelson iu the past tlvi) day**..  They are the railroad crew of' the C.

It is authoritatively stated that the  ro.ul from Argenta lo Trout Lake, at  mouth of Duncan river, vvill let out  all of their hands in tvvo  more  davs."  The Nelson Tribune of the same date  says:- The steamer Knkauee brought  in a large crew ot men yesterday fiom  the Lardo.

AND  Eastern papers have been   discussing with a great deal of warmth the  proposal to send Canadian troops to  uphold the prestige of the empire in  South  Africa.       The Montreal   Star  has been most active of all  the Imperialist  journals   in    arousing    the  broader pauiuusm and caning upon'  the  government at Ottawa to profer  Canada's services to the mother countiy in the present crisis. The Govcru-  mfcutwas disposed lo hang back, tor  whatever reason we know not,   and  several     prominent    Liberal     papers  boldly opposed the.sending of troops  -.It'..has been  more than   .i.iiu:cl   u.at  French  influence,  was at the  bottom  of  the  premier's  luKewarmness   ana  unfortunately   too     much    color    is  lent .to"this view,by the sneet's    at  England and the open sympathy .-.villi  the   Boers   which   the   French   press  of   Quebec   has   indulged     in.      The  Herald   does   not   believe   in   saying  anything   which   might   prevent    the  genuine   fusion   which all good citizens  hope   may   one  day  occur    between  the  two   great   races   of    uns  Dominion and the less said about the  present l.ench-Canadian attitude toward   the Empire the better.  The Imperial compaign of the  Star and:: other Conservative papirs  has at least had the effect of forcing  the government's hand. Premier Laurier and Mr. Tarte have at the 11th  hour realized that it is dangerous to  trifle wuu, or attempt to repress, the  natural sympathies of Britons '��������� and  the government organs have announced during the past few days that a.  Canadian regiment will be held in  readiness for active service in the  Transvaal.  It was such stinging and well deserved taunts ��������� as the following In  the- Star that made the government's  leaders   jump   into   line:  "Laurier says: 'Let us put off tue  question unul we see what turns up.'  "loday'tke press of Russia, France,  Germany and Spain may point to  the Canadian government's refusal  to act as proof that there is uo British  empire.  "The foreign enemies of England  ���������wanted this act of Laurier's to  urge Kruger to hold out and to Tight  in the sure hope that he would get  allies.     -    " ���������  "If the news had been flashed  around the world, 'Canadian troops  are ready to* sail for the Transvaal';  Australian troops arc redy for th::  field,' what would have been the influence  "and   the   inference?  "Would it have produced increased  Tespect for the empire, or a stimulated desire tc.attack it?  ���������"; '"i ne foreign enemies would liave  immediately said, "If we fight England we have to count on her colonies. If we strike the British Motherland, up will rise her great brood of  possessions  all  over the world.''  "Canada is the greatest of England's colonies arid should have led  the way.  "The government of Canada can  meet in council and without parliamentary? sanction   can   vote  millions  ������������������for��������� eontracts_to_ena.ble contractors  to subscribe to election funds, but.lt  .    refuses .to  vote  a  dollar  to  send ' a  regiment   to   the   Transvaal.  "Canada can spend S250.000 for  wharves in a few doubtful constituencies where the wharves tvill not  be used, but it has not a cent to  give to uphold the fiae* that protects  us against the whole world.  "Sir Charles Tupper has clearly intimated to the government cf Canada  that his party will strengthen its  :'��������� hands. But what is wanted is action,  action, patriotic? action, not talk;and  subterfuge.  "Of whom is Laurier afraid in  this Transvaal matter?"  .������ To show thai French Canadian  sentiment looks at this Question  from a standpoint which Britons find  it hard to understand, it Is only necessary to read such articles as ..the  following, which appeared in La  Presse, of Montreal:  "Our "Warriors  "The latest news announces to us  that In Ontario there are 20,000 individuals, having nothing to do. who  are ready to join and serve in the  rear guard ln the Transvaal war.  Those' 20,000 braves, of whom that  excellent 'bombast,' Sam Hughes, Is  the grand master and provisional col  onel, demand that they be clothed,  thai they be fed and that they be  furnished with an insurance policy  cn ineir lives.  ;"--������, yes!   ,  "There is some good patriotic job  in that question. They are cute, the  warrriors Who wish to cut old Kruger's whiskers,  "Hardly three weeks ago the Western farmers were demanding men  for the reaping of their harvest. Actually tliero are not enough laborers  to push thc extensive work3 , which  have been started bv the government,  the railways, the wharves, etc. Little  fjar that any of these fighters would  prerent themselves to work with a  pie!, rnd shovel..  "They nre much cuter than that  Ine Imperialists. They will be clothed and 'he Canadians at large will  pay for it; they will make a trip  and .lean Baptiste will pay for it.  "Oh. thev will ho: kill anybody���������  do not be -afraid. - if they succeed in  their trick, those sustalners of the  Old Crown, they will go very far���������  as far as the Cape, passing the island  of Maderia, where good wine is to  be had; via the Azores, where one  ran suck the juice of the fruit, and  The Transvaal ultimatum," fixing  the hour at winch. President Krugar  had made up him mind to let slip  the dogs of war, says the Free Press  iu a. very excellent article, was the  natural climax of the events preceding it, and the crowning proof lhal  the Boors have all along been resolved upon fighting. They are expected  in some quarters to .wait for Groat  Brilain to strike the llrst blow. But  the ultimatum proved their 'determination to ho the aggressors in the war  which their aggressions upon the Out-  latidcrs have brought upon them.  Whether President Kruger was led  to that determination by the consideration that the best cluinco of denling the British a, heavy blow will be  lost if the arival of the British arniv  corps is waited for, or was forced  ti it by the dilllculty of restraining  tho fighting ardor of the Boers, there  is no certain means of knowing..  iiiat both explanations are probably true is indicated by the fact that  without waiting for the time limit,  the Boers crossed the frontier and war  was   do  facto  begun.  Onco it was certain that the Boer  forces had set foot upon the tongu.;-  liko. frontier of Natal, it was taken  for granted that as much of that strip  as extends from Laing's Nek; at iis  northernmost point ,down '���������, to Newcastle, would . fall into their hands.  They will thus be ? in possesion ? for  a'time of a portionof the 'tongue of  isatal, measuring 30 miles from the  tip southward. -Farther downthan  Newcastle, the, towns of ''.Dundee and  Ladysmith have British garrisons,  which may be .depended upon to give  an   account  of .themselves.  _~ rush across Natal from the Orange free ".������������������'; ���������---''' Uuuauary.". upon  Ladysn ��������� 'hicli  is  50  miles  soulli  of Newcastle, has been all along regarded as a card for an early Boer  move. The garrison at Ladysmith  was accordingly reinforced on Tues- I  day by thc Gordon Highlanders and '  a contingent of Indian troops, and, '  so strengthened, was regarded as  able to hold that point. Dundee,  which is some 20 miles north of  Ladysmith and 30 miles south of  Newcastle, was garrisoned last week  with about C000 men, that. force' being held suflicient to stem a Boer  inroad from the Ziiluland border���������  across northern Natal" from the cast,  as the expected inroad from Ladysmith would  be from the west.  Repulsing   of   these   flank   attacks  is   necessary   to   the  success   of   the  British -operations.     Until   the "British   reinforcements    arrive,     Dundee  and Ladysmith will assuredly be posts  of  danger  for the  troops   garrisoned  therein. ���������    When  Sir  George    Colley  tried to enter the - , ransvaal in 1SS1,  he made Newcastle his advance base  of   operations,   and     pushed     on   to  Laing's Nek. where he vvas checked.  The Boers  immediately,  by flank attacks from the -mountainous borders,  east and   west,   began   to  cut  off  his  communication    with Newcastle, ail  made  him   turn  back    and 'fight th**  losing fight lhat ended in the disaster  of   Majuba   hill.    When  Sir   Redvers  Bullcr takes  the field with  the  British forces now on their way to South  Africa, and advances towards Laing's  Nek to  enter ihe Transvaal, be will  make  sure,  as  he  advances,  lhat al!  behind him is safe froin all danger cf  flank attacks.

TEA DRINKING A GOOD THING  The fact that tea drinking, like  smoking, is novv almost universal goes  a long way toward proving it a general blessing. Tea is a stimulant.  Under some circumstances it is as  powerful a stimulant as whiskey.  Rightly prepared and used in moderation it is unquestionably a good and  a beneficial thing. So many cranks  are apt to rise up and condemn every-  thlng-in-tho-nature-of-stim.ulanis-t_.atJ  it is gratifying to he able to give the  opinion on lea of a distinguished an-  alyist and scientist in the person of  Br. Goodfellow, of London. .He.says:  "The physiological effects of drinking  property prepared tea in moderation  are those of stimulating the nervous  system, an increase of circulation,  aud an. activity of thc sweat glands.  The tea acts as a general rouser to the  brain and higher nervous centres, and  the increased circulation produces perspiration, so that the familiar saying  that a cup of tea cools is scientifically-  correct, as the increased How of perspiration leads io loss of heat from  the body.'' Lest this should lead weak-  minded people to become confirmed  tea drunkards, It must be added that  over-indulgence in lea is as dangerous  to health as is the excessive absorption1 of alcohol. Above all things-,  tea should'never.be. allowed. .��������� to boil,  nor should it be taken immediately  after the principal: meal of the day.  Dr. Goodfellow '.'proceeds to say:  "When tea is properly prepared and  not taken to exeesii, it is practically  non injurious,- ;ihd in these days of  high pressure and quick living it is a  question 'whether., some such form of  harmless stimulation is not a.necessity  in order to meet the conditions of  modern life. "When tea. is badly prepared its use may become injurious.  Badly prepared lea contains an excess of tannic acid, and this body acts  most injuriously upon the digestive  system. Many attacks of indigestion  are brought on by drinking so-called  'strong' tea*at meal times.,! Tea  drinking.when carried to excess/may  also produce, in those who are predisposed to nervous complaints, palpitation of the heart, hyper-excitability,  sleeplessnesE and nervousness, and  those who are naturally of a.n excitable nature and suffer from n'ervoiifi  complaints should bo careful not to  carry tea drinking too far." These  words of wisdom are well worth reading, remembering and acting upon.  They arc from a high competent, authority and aro probably bomo out by  the experience of overy intelligent  person who likes a good cup of tea.  Day ob wrath's.done comin' soon!

David Mills, in reply to an address from tlie Calgary Liberal association last wcclc, made, the-follow-!"  ing references to the past, present  and future of the North West:     ,  "In regard  to  that  portion  of your  address   relating  to   my   work   while  minister  of  the   interior,   I may  say  that when the government of Alexanr  der Mackenzie  was  in  office.    1  pre'-  pared  a measure at  his instance for  the  government of  these Territories.  I then took .the ground that although  it was necessary, at the beginning, to  hnvo  ajipointed council  for  the  Territories, it was most 'desirable at tne  very outset to provide  thai    the settlers  in   the  Territories  should   have  power   to   elect  their   representatives  as    the     country     progressed,,     and  that the persons so elected should, "r  course of time,   supersede   those   an  pointed,  and  that the  council  should  thus  'at, tho   very   earliest   possible  moment be entirely  composed of  lite  persons elected  by  lhe   votes  oC   thi  peoplo. "Mr.  Mackenzie  acquiesced in  that view, and  thus': It was  that you  became empowered With the rights -jf  local   self-government.       1   have   always  take an'interest, in   the  Nortli i ...������������������.������������������,.,..,,..

Goldwin     Smilli     onco  called   Canada   the   ragged   edge dr.  off? llio. United States. ? No one is ol  that  opinion   now.      Only   In   recent  vears the older  provinces of Ontario  and   Quebec   have   discovered     lari.'.e  t-rclions   of   territory   norlh   of     tlie  height of land where people can sel-  '..ic  whov du .not  eorne  to   the  North  West   Territories   nd    llio     adjoining  provinces.    These   lands  arc  capahlo  of   settlement,  and   ot  growing  good  crops, up the shores ot the Hudson s  bay.    As ,to this western part of th >  Dominion'.'  1   sho   no    reason     why.  wilhin the next 25 years, you shou'd  not  have many  times the population  you   now  liave  here.:"  Tlie minister of justice hero pointed out lhat what the North West required   was   population     ready     and  willing  to   till   the   soil.    The  towns  wiil  always take care nf  ^jomselves,  h*-   said.     They   will    always  secure  plenty of people if the farming region  in the district  whore  they  arc  situated is well  settled. As to the European'population, which was now coming  from   lhe  continent,   and  taking  up farm lands in the North West, the  minister said  he  had no  fears    that  they ,woulil  not   be   absorbed     and  become  good   Canadians.       'I no  no v  severs   come   to   tins  country   with  no   prejudices  in   favor  of  tho  laws,  language,  or  political   institutions   '.C  the countries from wliich thoy  como  but  with   a   desire   simply   to   bctttr  their condition, and to have.thc protection  ot the  English laws  and  lh~  enjoyment  ot   English  institutions.  "WTe have at present time." con  tinned' the minister, ' hopes, wliich I  believe are capable of realization, of  a great future for this country, and  ils ability to remain a portion of thc  British empire, as much so as anv  other portion of the empire���������as of  the United Kingdom itsolg.

Tlio defending .force, 1-c  says, includes the Natal mounted  rules nnd tho c .ihineers. A ramnrk-  ajly smart and workmanlike force cf  .(.00 Boers at Saimispruit. Much  discontent' exists here owing to tlie  presence of suspected Boer adherents.  Troops arc kept uiider arms, and volunteers arc ordered to sleep booted  and spurred ready for .instant action.  The telegraphic line between Krati-  ihnn .and Maritzaan has been cut and  a strong command of Boers has occupied ._.e Kraaihan railway siding.  Tho foregoing report is considered lo  be correct, as late last night the war  oflic had news of -a British advance  from Ladysmith and was hourly expecting further intelligence.  Tho Times Capetown-correspondent  u=seits that the so-called Irish brigade which is fighting for the Transvaal i . a fraud, and that scarcely any  men who are known to be Irish are  in it. He added -.that Irishmen in  the colony strongly resent the form i-  tion of the brigade.  Narrow Escape for Cecil Rhodes  Capetown. Oct. li.���������Cecil Rhodes  had a narrow escape from capture  while on his way here. His traiii  was delayed and he crossed the Mod-  " der river three hours after the expiration ot the ultimatum, while the  Boers -were only .'five miles distant  and their spies actually on the platform. Rhodes lay low and was not  recognized." Had- he been his, capture  would have been easy,-as tho line .is  not defended. He believes the strength  of.the enemy has been greatly exaggerated and that they will not attack  thc entreachments : The chief cause  of anxiety is. the ignorance of their  artillery   strength.

London, Oct. 17.���������According lo the  latesL despatches on Monday from  Durban tho Boer force that invaded  Natal is estimated at 1G.00O men; A  portion occupied Newcastle and . 1-  vanced to D.umhauser, but retired  back to Iguaane, owing to defective  transport service. This delayed indefinitely thc assault of the Boers cu  Natal. Tho invasion was started iu  tin ee columns last Thursday through'  tho Bolhas ' pasi.- Laing's Nek and  Walkerscroom. Several thousand natives asisted in 'dragging . the guns  over tne mountains. .The British'  troops at Ladysmith and Dundee were  disappointed at the retirement, -s  they were looking forward to an open  engagement. .,  Funking an Engagement  The news that the Boers had arrived at Daunhaitser raised hopes  that they would risk an engagement  in tho opon, but it is now ascertained  that the detachment which reached  there was only a small' advance body  of Commanding General Joubert'  main column. The advance of the  Boers- was) accompanied . by some  .looting of stores at Newcastle and  Gagano. A lefugeo assorts lhat Commandant Vilkjocn's . command contains a surprising number "of Hollanders', Germans and Englishmen.

On the ."her  terview says: "I maintain that this  war is being forced on the Boers by  men who have never forgiven Ma-  juba'hill. In my opinion owing'to  Groat 'Britain's unpreparedness,' hostilities during thc next two months  will resemble the international yacht  Tace' off Sandy Hook: As there" cannot be" any serious fighting 'during  that epriod it will be as dull as yacht  races without wind.' We have plenty  of time, therefore, to count, the cost  and reclcon up the guilt of a contemplated - wholesale homicide in .ho  Transvaal.

ENORMOUS TRAFFIC  Inadequate Supply of Freight Cars to  Meet the Grain Demand  Montreal, Oct. M.���������Railway companies are experiencing an unprecedented demand for cars. Though  the C.P.R. and the G.T.R. have made  large additions both in passenger aud  freight rolling stock, in anticipation  of the very large increase in the general freight carrying business this  autumn, they now find that with  every car in use and with all those  than can be obtained from the car  companies, they are still short in  roiling stock. This car famine is just  as bad in the States as in Canada.  Apart from the good crops in the  great west of both countries the general freight business increased enormously over the last season. Anticipating a very large increase in the  grain crop 'in Manitoba and thc North  Wesl me' C.P.R. company increased the equipment of its western division between Winnipeg and Fort  \\ Miani and the West. Through thc  grain areas of Manitoba and thc  i.AV.T. something like (1000 cars of  grain crops have heen harvested a  few weeks ago. The company ha_.~  moved 000,000 bushels of, grain up  lo ���������v-e--ion'ay from the elevators In  Manitoba and the North West to theii  elevators at Fort William. According to estimates furnished tho company by Ils agents, there was in the  elevutois In the district no less than  .V...0,000 bushels of grain which will  have to be moved east to make room  for supplies from the agricultural  districts.  By utilizing its passenger steamers  as freight boats the company has  been ablo to move from the elevators  at' Fort William to the cast and to  the seaboard S.uOO.OOO bushels of  grain placed in the elevators there  Wring 2.500,000 bushels at present  at Fort William. The company expects with its present equipment lo  be able to move to the east froin  Fort William something like a quarter milion bushels daily.   o   ELEVATOR   COMMISSION  Winnipeg.

Vancouver, Oct, Iti.���������Major General  Hutton of thc Canadian militia arrived hero late last night after an inspection trip across the continent. Speaking of the Canadian troops of 1.000  men for the Transvaal tho General  said his presence at Ottawa was not  ueccessary for formation of thc contingent but hoped to return in time  io seo the troops before they left "to  ivish them a God speed and tell them  that 1 am sorry that 1 am not going  loo." Asked as to the route they  would take the general stated they  .vould in all probability proceed  direct to tho Capo from an Atlunllc  port. The transport Is already chartered.

POOR PROSPECTS FOR THE  YACHT RACE.  New York, Oct. 16.���������The prospects  for the international yacht race are  not ot the best. Today's show no improvement.  ��������� Another gratifying statement has  been issued- by the Dominion department of finance. The capital account  was reduced a million dollars during the last three months.  Col. S. B. Steele, commander ot  the North West Mounted Police, in,  the Yukon, arrived in Vancouver  last week, having come down from  the north by the Humboldt. He left  the capital of the Klondike on Seo-  tember 20th. Colonel Steele is retir-  ine* i-'-om the command of the Yukon  police, and leaves in the course of a,  few days for Ottawa. Believing that  the summons to the Canadiau capital  means a termination of his services  in the Klondike, the people of t-u. it  district, Americans alike, have joined in ai petition to the Canadian government asking that he be restored  to official life in the Yukon.  And   Others   in   Speeches Delivered  at a Bowmanville Meeting  Monday  Bowmanville, Ont., Oct. 17.���������Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Mr. Mulock and Mr.  Fielding were the loading speakers at  an enthusiastic Liberal meeting yesterday afternoon. Dryden and Logan  spoke briefly. Minister Mulock spoke  at considerable length, dwelling on the  increased prosperity of the country  under tho Liberal rule and on the  successful settlement of the Manitoba  school issue by the Laurier government. This led liini to .speak of tha  present campaign of the Conservative  press in arousing racial hatred in tho  matter of the South African contingent. Premier Laurier devoted his  speech largely to the general questions  of the day, congratulating the audience on the prosperity of the country,  defending the position of the government on tho prohibition question and  trade matters. Referring to tlie  matter of the contingent he expressed  regret at the attitude of the Opposition and read a cablegram, the governor general had received from Right  Hon. Jos. Chamberlain thanking tho  government for offering to send ono  thousand men. He also announced  that he had received n cablegram from  Lord Lansdownc, the secretary of  stato for war, staling that the Imperial government could uot allow an  exceptional course in the caso of Canada, as 'compared with the other colonies and the Imperial government  would therefore bear the expense of all  lhe colonial troops after they wero  placed in South Africa.  INCREASED   REVENUE  Ottawa, Oct. 11.���������A financial' statement issued by the department of  finance for the three months of the  current year shows an advance of  $2"i~",.,o0 in the ordinary revenue over  the same months in 1S9S. The expenditure shows an increase of ?374;75l.  chiefly accounted for by thc increased  cost of collection of the customs and  otlicr revenues consequent upon the  growth of the service. There is over  a million dollars reduction in the  capital account.  P. BURNS &CO  Wholesale and Retail dealers in  Prime Beef, Pork. Mon and  Sdiisage.

Tliis man Tarte must wish by this  time that somebody had stepped on  him long ngo. Even as short a while  ago as the 12th he and his reptile  elitors were doing their utmost to  minimize the effect of the despatch of  the Canadian contingent nnd rob it of  ^he significance which it undoubtedly  possesses as a solid proof of the unity  of the empire. Here is tho kind of  stuff his particular pet organ vvas  getting olf on that date:  *' In the Ottawa correspondence  which La Patrie vvill publish this  evening, the statement, presumably  dictated by Mr. Tarte, is mnde that  absolutely nothing has been done by  the   government   vvith  regard to  the  ......1: ������r ..   .,_._tllii_,_i_.l  In    Ilia    TpMfie.  tunity of advancing Canada's interests  and showing that the loyalty so loudly  professed by himself was sincere. 1  hope thatall that is possible will ypt  he clone by the government to repair  the hlunder they have made and lo  enable Canada to occupy the position  to which it is entitled among the other  loyal colonies of the Empire.  -  Sir Charles added tlmt. .any steps  taken by the government to 'this-.' end  would have his heartiest support.  sending of a contingent to the Transvaal, the statement of the Toronto  Globe to the contrary. The article  says the government would be pleased  to favor tbe volunteering of a, timnhpr  of the militia, but does not believe  that, public sentiment vvill favor the  expenditure of any money by the  government for that purpose."  Lb Temps, the leading French-  Ciuiadian newspaper, was ill-advised  enough to take up the silly cackle as  follows:  "The Canadian government- does  not take part officially in the African  war. It vvill not raise any troops for  Great, Britain, but only.facilitate individuals vvho may desire to go.atid fight  the Boers. Not a single man, fibtone^  cent nor any official contribution oil-  Hie, part of Canada to a war against  the" liberty and independence of a  brother nation���������such is tbe. decision nf  the Liberal cabinet of Laurier. He  deserves well of his native country."  All* this- eager contention to make  little of the Canadian contingent from  au Imperial point of view vvas as false  as it vvas foolish.    The whole affairs of  r loyal Canadian regiment are being  hanJIlnd by the Militia Department of  the CauadKiti Government, which will  clothe, equipNtransport and pay the  soldiers, of vvhomSt^consists. until it  reaches Cape Colony>\The officers,  who will command the regiment, are  selected by the Canadian Government  and derive tlieir authority from the  Canadian Militia Act. Tarte and.his  little gang of disloyal Quebec scribbler^  must be sorry they spoke. It is quite  safe to say that had the Laurier government lieen senseless enough to  follow out their ideas.^it vvouid have  been svvept_put of -existence in a torrent of national indignation,  Debs Lectures on Monday Night.  The noted labor leader and orator,  Eugene V. Debs, vvill give his famous  leet ine entitled " Labor and Liberty,"  on Monday evening, October 23rd. at  8 p.m. sharp, in Tapping's hall, under  the auspices of the Revelstoke Trade  and Labor Assembly.  Admission by ticket 50c. for gents;  ladies 23c. Tickets can be obtained at  tho wicket on the night of the lecture,  also from the members of the assembly  and R. P. Pettipiece and James Gill &  Oo.~  The    Springfield     Daily    Republic  Times says editorially :   ���������  A man terribly in earnest and impressing one as having a mission, clean  cut as to both figurii and speech: a  student of conditions and with a  marvelous ability to mnishiil -facts  together in an argument; a. man from  the common ranks and evidently  intended by ii'������t ore as a leader; ti man  whom the whole country hns already  ���������heaid from, and, no doubt, vvill again;  a man evidently sincere and vvith a  desire for the elevation of a man and  the amelioration of,the hard social and  industrial conditions of the day; an  agitator who does not seem to be a  ranter, but practical, evidently honest  and willing-tn concede sincerity of  opinion to others who may not agree  vvith him: a polished speaker and a  man moved by deep convictions���������all  of this, Eugene V. Dehs impresses his  hearers as being. ��������� ��������� ��������� * He appealed to reason and not to passion.  The cause of labor is elevated, and a  better understanding between capital  and labor reached by such logical,  fair minded and reasonable advocates  on either si'de ns Eugene V. Debs  proved to be."  Such comment by the daily press  means something, and lhat something  is'that a new apostle has risen' in the  vvorld'to unite and.lead from industrial bondage, the hosts of toil; that he  has taken up his task with such profound conviction of its importance and  such keen sympathy vvith suffering  humanity that even the voice of natural opponents is hushed in respectful  silence or finds expression, in spite of  class interest and previous training in  praise of the noble words and work of  this remarkable man.  This would-be traitor Tarte thought  it would seem that he had achieved a  lead-pipe cinch on the Dominion ar.d  had approached within' measurable  distance of owning it. The climate of  Quebec is favorable apparently to  these kind of illusions. But it would  be a mistake to suppose that' the  .Et-eiich-C.inadians_of-_Qtiebec___sympa^_  thize with Tarte's anti-Imperial predilections. That province vvill furnish  itsshuiaof French-Canadians to the  South African contingent,'both officers  and men, who may he trusted to give  as good an account of themselves as  the drafts from any other province.  At Ronville. a Frenc.h-Car.Hili.in village  about 30 miles from Montreal.- on the  occasion of the annual fair the despatch of the contingent was warmly  endorsed and the Queen hiHirtily  cheered.    We   niu.-t  not   lump   for   a  moment  our  loyal   fellow  citizen-,  of  * ij  Quebec province with Tarte and hii  littlejgang of feather-headed traitors.  But the obvious lesson of this most  reirrettable incident is that itbehooves  all loyal Canadians whether in Quebec  or British' Columbia, or any other  province of the Dominion, to take  excellent good care that on tbe very  enrliest occasion this man.
