TO OPEN UP THE BIG BEND  Thu chief factor to which lievelstoke  has to look for progress and prosperity  in thu fill uie i.s the development of  the Big Bend district. For Years in  spite of the dil.ieulties coufionting  thetn in the lack of any other means  of communication beside it pack trail  our own citizens have Iithoreil towards  this end. In Ground Hog basin, in the  placer gravels of Coldstream and its  tributaries, on Keystone mountain,  Carncs and Laformu Creek, and in the  Standard Basin a lot of honest, hard  work has heen done hy local mining  inun to devulopu the mineral resources  of the district, undeterred hy the  t-noiiiiotis expense of transportation  and thu' hardships and dangers of  existence among the lofty and rugged  iiiount'iins, which compose the chiif  feature of the landscape of the  country.  These efforts have heen supplemented by a continuous, though perhaps  somewhat spasmodic effort, on tho  part of the business men and public-  spirited citizens of Ruvt'lstoke to get  some measure adopted by which the  diflicullics and expense of transput latum in this region might he lightened.  During the la.->t two years of political  agitation and business depression in  Kootenay it has been impossible to  make these efforts effectual. This  dreary epoch is now fortunately at tin  end and with the prospect of ;t strong  and stable administration in power at  Victoiia, our hopes of development  and prosperity naturally revive. The  Hek.vld urges upon nil the citizens of  Revelstoke to take this opportunity to  make one more effort, and this time a  single minded and united effort, to  induce the government to help us out  in opening up the mineral resources  of the Big Bend to Ihe outside world.  There are three requirements lo this  end, towards each ' of which government aid U1113- he legitimately asked  and given.  HOUSE  FURNISHINGS  In Wall Paper we are offering special inducements this  spring in the way of low  prices. We have a big stock  to select * from ar d those  needing Wall Paper will  find it to their advantage to  inspect our line and get our  prices before purchasing elsewhere. Our Window shades  and curtain poles are new  and artistic.  Groceries  We are always on the top in  this line; being the heaviest  purchasers we can afford the  choicest goods at the lowest I  prices.  AT DEPARTMENTAL STORE  AN IMPORTANT OCCASION  ..IN MILLINERY..  At this Store all goods must be Fold in their season.    In fact we insist on closing out  One necessary step towards the  development of the Big Bend is a visit  of the provincial mineralogist to the  district. A description by expert and  official .���������iiit.hni-il.yYitilhe character 'of  the foundation and surface indications  of the country would lie an immense  aid to its exploration and prospecting  and would furnii.li 'to the outside  public for the lirst time a clear and  reliable statement of its possibilities.  The district is not half prospected.  From Coldstream to the mouth of  Canoe river il has hardly been touched  and yet between these points ��������� the  nature of the limestone foi million is  sucil as experience in other parts of  Kootenay has proved to be an almost  infallible indication of large deposits  of galena. Any reliable scientific ir.-  forination on such it point as this,  wliich the provincial mineralogist  could furnish would be of great assistance and value.  RAM LAL'S TEA as a Pack-ige Tea  cannot be beat. It has no equal ln the  Market, as a sample package will convince all lovers of good Tea.  C. B. Hume & Co.  Another factor, whicli is of vital  importance to the attainment of lhe  desired result would be the placing of  a steamboat on the river. It has been  suggested that a bonus from the provincial government might legitimately  be   asked   in   aid   of  this   project,  a  StiR^'stion't'irwlTich our member has  expressed himself as favorable, and  which he will if urged no doubt take  up vigorously. The third method liy  whicli the government could greatly  assist the development of the district  is by the construction of a waggon  road as far at all events as Laporte, ns  1111 auxiliary and feeder to the waterway of the river. ' This idea is one  which meets with in uch favor among  mining men interested in the district  and is one which Revelstoke people  should take up and further hy every  means in their power. The Herald  intends to publish at an early date  interviews with prominent Big Bend  mining men as to the feit6ibility and  advantages of this scheme and in the  meanwhile recommends - it to the  consideration of the puhlic spirited  residents of the city and district.

On Friday the water hud  covered the Arrowhead track in places  to such depth lhat the train'did not  leave in the morning and in the evening about half past ten the Rossland  made her first trip up to Revelstoke,  landing her passengers and cargo just  below the railway bridge. The Kootenay followed suit on Saturday. The  appearance of these beautiful river  steamers of the C. P. R. fleet, with  their gleaming white sides, glittering  port holes ami weird electric scutch  lights was extremely beautiful as they  passed along the river under the town.  The highest point of water was touched on Saturday, coming a few inches  of the level of the great flood of'01.  The Illecillewaet. wns five feet higher  .it the dam on Friday than it has been  since the Revelstoke Water, Power  and Light Co, established their plant  there, but it dropped after that. The  (linn stood the enormous pressure  well. The new bridge across the  Illecillewaet also escaped unscathed.  The waters covered part of Sain  Crowle's,property across the Illecillewaet. Fred Fraser's garden across the  railway bridge was flooded and S.  Smith, who bought the Hetherington  farm, had to leave the house, with his  family and belongings, as the waters  were all round it and the banks of the  river were caving in.Theriversubsided  somewhat on Sunday hut rose again  during the night and np to date was  still at a. high level.  At the foot of the canyon of the  Columbia the scene was one of indescribable savage beauty and  grandeur. The dull and boiling flood  heaped up in the centre from its  compression in the narrow gorge,  suddenly shot through into the wider  valley expanding as it raced along into  great waves of tossing and angry  water. It wns a sight, which once  seen could never be forgotton.  The Trebelli Concert  Only a .-.mall house was present last-  night at the Song Recital   given   bv'  Aldlle Antoinette Trebelli. assisted  by  Mr. Eugene  Berns,  pianist,  and Mr.-  Archie  Matthews,   violinist.    This   is-  greatly to be regretted as the perfor-'  maiice was one of   a   kind   to   which  Revelstoke has not often  an  oppnitu--  nity of listening.   Mddle Trebelli' is 11  vocalist   of   (list   class   rank and her'  rendering of   her numbers   gave   the'  greatest delight to all  lovers of good,  music present.   Her operatic selection  from Traviata was very effective,  her'  simpler songs and ballads were render-'  ed with exquisite   taste   and   feeling:  especially pleasing heing the beautiful'.  Norwegian song  "Solveig's Lied" and'  hersingingof Bizet's difficult Taran-  telle and   Tosti's Spring was  perfect.  As  a closing   encore' Mdlle.  Trebelli'  shewed Iier marvellous control  of her'  voice   in   a   French   laughing    sonK.-  which fairly brought down the house'  and throughout the evening her audience,  though small gave her a hearty  reception on each appearance. Eugene'  Berns, the pianist, shewed himself  a  finished master of his   instrument   in>  his two numbers.    Archie Matthews,-  our  own    talented  young   violinist's  n.imber    was   received   with ruptur-*-  ous applause and nothing but  an   encore   would   satisfy tbe   crowd.   His  performance    was    greatly    enjoyed,  although  his  selections   were  rather-  more severely classical than usnal.  The Hkrald regrets that the enter'-"  prising beneficiaries Dr. Cross and J. *  Taylor met- with so poor a recognition"  of their efforts to give Revelstoke a-'  chance of attending a first class cop-  cert.  County Court  (Ilofore Judge Forin)  The docket of the county court hel  here on the 20th, was unavoidahly  held over from our last issue. The  most interesting cases are g.i.ven below:  ^Hi'iig v.

Buying good Carpets means a very big item  of expense when you're furnishing or fixing  up and every few cents even that you can  save on each yard makes a very great differ-  ������ ence to your purse-* ' You'll find "Wednesday's  reductions extra pleasing for that reason.

British flag it is customary to place  the Canadian coat of arms on the red  ensign. It does not improve the appearance of the flag, i.s unintelligible  to strangers and does not nartictilarly  appeal lo Canadian senti-v.ent. >'o  good object is served by having such  ���������j. blotch on the flag. Tlie Ontario  Historical society has passed a resolution favoring the substitution of n  simple maple loaf for iho Canadian  coat of arms. A maple leaf -would  not spoil the appearance of the flag.  It is a simple device, could be easily  recognized at a distance and would  appeal to Canadian setiment -where-  over seen. The red flag wilh nothing  on it but the union in the canton  looks as well in Canada as in England, but if there is to be any distinguishing Canadian mark on the  flap the maple leaf will bu the most  appropriate emblem.  WOULD NOT CHEER THE QUEEN  (The Mall and Empire).  The members of parliament who declined to rise and sing the National  Anthem or cheer for the Queen after  Bourassa had mado his awful pro-  Boer speech were:  Sir Wilfrid L'aurler.  Mr. Fielding.  Mr. Fisher.  Mr. Fitzpatrick.  air. Godbout.  Mr. Carroll.  Mr. Belcourt.  Mr. Erb.  Mr. Brodeur.  Mr. Campbell.  Mr. Bourassa,  Ono report says: "Mr. Archie Campbell, M. 1\, for Kent, not only retained his seat, but also remained wearing  his bat till the middle of the third  verse of 'God  Save the  Queen.' "  M'r. Bourassa is a powerful leader  or he could not dominate thoso 11  members In this extraordinary taslilon.  he always votes with the government.  The other day he addressed and  franked 1,000 envelopes to his constituents in Prince Edawrd county, all  Liberals. The envelopes were sent  down to the messengers' rooms to be  stuffed with Fielding's' budget speech.  But, whether accidentally or maliciously, it is not known, the envelopes  were stuffed with Foster's "crushing  reply to Mr. Fielding," and Sir Charles  Tupper's loyal utterances. Away the  stuffed envelopes went to the major's  constituents, and bye and bye the  major received numerous enquiries  from bis electors: "Have you turned Conservative, major?"  That's why the major Is mad.  A YUKON STORY  It is remarkable how many people  there are who don't make money  because they are afraid to lose a  little.  Then.,   are   more    ways     of   making  money   off   il     Klondike    claim    than  working   It.

The  Commissioner accepted the $0,000 royalty and gave him  the  usual receipt,  staling  what   it   was    for,    with   tlie  number   of   the     claim,- location,   etc.  Ono day nn Englishman, came    along  looking  for    a.  good   thing    for   some  people  who  had   money  to spend.  He  asked Mr. Blank,  among others,  what  he  had  to  sell.      Mr.  Blank  told   him  he  didn't know exactly but he would  show   h'im    his   goods.       Then,    in   a  casual   way,   Mr.   Blank     showed     the  Englishman his  receipt for royalty on  claim   so-and-so.       "And,   you   know."  he   said,   with  :i     wink,   "a  man  isn't  paying royally  on  more  than   be can  possibly     help."      ' The*      Englisman,  thinking   he   had   a   good   thing,    took  the   SG.OOO  receipt,     looked     over    the  claim in -.1 general  way, and  ended by  buying it for $350,000.      So al least the  tale   runs,   says   the    Canada.  Gazette.  There is a weak spot in the administration  of  the  Klondike  when  such  a.  swindle can   be  perpetrated.  It seems to be agreed thai Mr. Tarte  will shortly return from his Paris  picnic. The fatted calf Is understood  in be perfectly safe. What will happen  to   the prodigal son   Is another  story.

Sloore, general freight agent, Northern Pacille  railroad, for the St. Louis Globe-  Democrat.  The worthless western horse, almost  In the twinkling of an eye, has become  a valuable animal. He is no longer  looked upon as a "pest of the prairie  and mountain ranges." He has raised  his head erect and now demands a  leasonable share of attention.  The tide has turned in his favor and  ho is bound lo bring his price in any  market. Think of lt! More than  20,000 head of these range horses have  neon sold In one market, namely, the  South St. Paul market, during the last  U0 days. Thousands have been sold  also at Omaha, Kansas City and at  various other markets, and large herds  of these horses, formerly called worthless animals, are being gathered in  Montana and Washington for sales to  take place in St. Louis aud Chicago in  the early part of next month. Several  thousand head are already purchased  and aro now being rounded up for  shipment to Minnesota Transfer.  How did Dobbin of the west degenerate? What was the cause ot his  downfall an'd this singularly reversed  condition?  A dozen or moro years ago a scarcity 'of good horses existed, and tho  new settlers and old ranchers of the  plains began * to invest in breeding  stock. The farmers in the Mississippi  and Missouri valleys did likewise, and  in the course of a few years there was  a slump in prices. It was not long  until there was a large surplus and  absolutely no sale- for any but the  best horses. It was too expensive for  western ranchers to "close herd" or  hold their stock in corrals, _ consequently they turned their horses loose,  regardless of their sex, and, like blinds  of gypsies, these'horses began to roam  the prairies and to climb the steep  sides of the mountains. The statutes  were overlooked- ,or * totally ignored,  the stallions wero set loose among the  various strains of blood and multiplied,  the varieties and number of horses on  tlie prairie until it was out of the  question lo herd them, and colts wore  turned loose as soon as branded. Those  horses degenerated in size and quality  and during the- early nineties were  generally dubbed "bronco" and "cayuse." also the "gay and festive"  because of his bucking proclivities.  He was also called the "cow" or "maverick" horse, notwithstanding the fact  that some excellent blood flowed in  his  veins.  Soon poor Dobbin was forsaken by  man: his roving bands multiplied into  millions and the ranges were overrun.  Think of this vast army stalking the  prairie in the day, eating the grasses  that were required for the sustenance  of the cattle and sheep, light, and lik<*  cycle boom began to decline; the  Spannlsh-Amerlcan war used up thousands of horses; the war in Africa  caused a search to be made in the  United States for horses to climb the  kopjes after the Boers; and all these  combined served to take the kinks  out of the market, when the prices  began to advance. The Eastern and  Middle States wore cleared -of horses  of average value, and this forced the  buyers of those states to look to tho  west to replenish their farming districts with cheaper horses. This  search for horses will continue; the  sales will be numerous from,now on,  because there is a shortage of horses  all through the Eastern and Middle  States, and because the English government  wantg more.  The auction sales at South SI. Paul  are conducted in an honest, straight  and business like manner. A ring is  prepared for buyers which has a seating capacity nearly equal to that ol' a  circus. The horses are cul out and  assorted in car load lots before th?  sale takes place, each bunch being  kept in wings and alleyways convenient lo run into the sales ring at  a moment's notice. A car-load Is put  up, and the auetioneor sells almost ln  a minute from the lime it is run in,  each buyer present having an opportunity to bid, but compelled to do so  on  lhe pump.  Now the western horse is coming in  for its share of admiration. Heretofore il waa the "measly thing." Now  It Is different���������they are -a "flue lot of  western horses," with "plenty of bone,"  some "splendid buys and fine roans,"  "well galtod," etc. It Is praised all  round by the farmers and horsemen  who attend the sales, and If you could  hear the auctioneer, you would think  there never was any other kind of a  horse known to man. He can furnish Iho buyer with a "tiptop bay," "a  beauty of a black," "a gray with a  good pair of eyes and splendid bone,"  "a white with fine shoulders and  broad back"���������look at him now! Isn't  he a beauty? He can furnish you a  black horse with -white eyes, or a  white horse with black eyes, just as  you please. In a "jiffy" he can run  Into the "ring a car load of stripe's,  checks, plaids, circus horses. or  horses of any color in the rainbow.  Tho writer attended one of the auction sales when 3,000 horses wero sold  ln car lots_in about four hours. Ho can  testify to the truth of the auctioneer's  statements in this respect. There  were horses of nearly every size; and  as for color, nearly every shade found  in the windows of one of our fashionable dry goods stores!  It has been demonstrated that tho  range horse, properly broken. Is as  gentle as any horse in the world.  One "can see them abotil our streets  every clay. The delivery boy scarcely  ever slops t'o tie them; they are perfectly quiet until they hear his voice  again, or tho noise of tho crack of his  whip. T predict that Dobbin of the  range will never again. tickle the  palate of tho French and Gorman connoisseur, but he destined to go  in single and double harness along  with the milkman and the plough boy.  He will rollick with the cultivator and  take part in tho performance at tbo  circus. If his rear pedestals oeca-'  sionally go up in the air you may be  sure that he is cogitating oh somo of  the incidents of his earlier good old  days on the western prairie, when he  didn't have to do a stroke of work.  One of my neighbors suddenly lost  one ot his large gray carriage horses  recently; he found one from Montana  which matched him thoroughly In gull,  size and style and 1.250 pound Dobbin  is now as proud and happy as a dumb  animal can possible be, together with  his mate drawing his mistress in a  Victoria or brougham shopping and on  pleasure excursions.  Dobbin is destined lo servo in various capacities over all our land. Tho  Northern Pacific Railway company is  sending buyers to the ranches in  Montana. Wyoming, Idaho, AVashing-  ton and Oregon to bring more horses  to the auction sales and if the owners  will accept reasonable prices, hundreds of thousands of horses will be  brought east and cash from the east  will be left in the west in exchange  for   them.
