Once more, as the last year of the  nineteenth century draws to a close, it,  becomes the pleasing task of the editor to expiess the hest wishes of the  season to all lhe Hukald's patrons  nnd readers, who constitute so large a  pioportion cf the total papulation of  this city and district. A year ago it  was difficult to utter these joyful  words. "A Merry Christmas" very  heartily. It was haul to bu merry  while the cloud, fnun wliich one felt  at. any moment might hurst a. storm of  universal war, hung lowering over the  Empire and men's heaits wete failing  them for fear and for looking for  those things which seemed to be coming upon the earth. This year,  though the clouds are not yet dispersed, unci indeed the outlook in China  is dark and gloomy enough, yet the  dead weight of disaster and defeat  which last. Christmas lay heavy on  onr hearts, has been lifted and we in  Canada are welcoming home with  pride and joy the Canadian civilian  soldiers, whose record has done so  much to wipe out the tarnish with  which professional blundering and  incompetence had stained for a. while  the lustre of the Empire's amis.  -Therefoie we can utter the season's  good wishes this year with greater  ease and singleness of heart,., with  thankfulness for the past and hope for  the future that all may yet be well.  And so the Hekai.D most cordially  and heartily wishes its friends and  supporters and all the good citizens of  Revelstoke city and district the kindly  wish, so old   and   yet  every   year  so  ���������Lbl A MERRY CHRISTMAS.  ���������*W*������iS*^������^*������^>^������^������>������^������*>^***b������i WsfcW^S^JsW******^*****.*-^ W&m**ffi������*&***#������*toP*&**p'**SWl������  FANCY GOODS  "We are sure we can save you money and money saved is money made.

HUME & CO  THE   HOSPITAL   PROJECT.  .   .-As will he   seen   in our   advertising  columns the the  mayor  has   called   a  public meeling on Thursday next, 27th  inst., for the purpose of discussing the  advisability ol' establishing a   general  hospital  iii lievelstoke.   The Herald  expects that the question of the advisability of the idea will be answered   in  the    affirmative -   without     a     very  prolonged debate and that the meeting  will very speedily resolve itself  into a  committee of   ways-and-means.    The  Herald-feels   sure   that-Revelstoke  will -quite easily be able, to ��������� establish  and maintain,such an institution.   We  ought   in   the   first,place to be able to  count on at. least S20U0 a year from the  province.    We could count.on a liberal  subscription list,  on which   no   dniihl  the C. P. R  will  figure   very., largely.  "Ve   could    expect   to   see   an   active  Womens' Hospital Aid Society started  by the ladies.". There would  be quite a  iiiuiilier'of paving cases.   There  is  no  doubt the project is quite feasible.    To  put it on a business  liasistlie  Calgary  plan "of   incorporating   tin*   hospital  with a regular board ol directors,   and  annual-   meeting,    report   and'audit  would probably   be   found   the   most  workmanlike   ami   satisfactory.    But  ���������such   matters   will-meet   with   a full  ventilation at the meeting next. Thursday, which the HERALD hopes to see a  large and "representative   one.    How  could we   be  'better -employed on   an  evening in Christinas week?  s������������SxiX5SXsXi������(^^ 0������������������������������ex5xs<sx^^  THE LARDEAU RAILWAY  Will be Completed Early Nerst   Spring.  v It is stated on what is said to be  reliable authority that it is the intention of the C. P. R. to have.' the  rails laid to the foot of Trout Lake  this year and to make connection  from that point to Trout Lake City by'  steamer.  The   Rossland   Miner  says:     It   is  officially announced by  Mr.   Marpole,  general   superintendent of  the   Canadian Pacific railway,   that   the   company will complete early next   spring  the Ludeau railway,   which   was   lie  gun  one   year   ago.     All   work, was  suspended during the present season  for the reason that the   railway   company wished to make further   ihvesti-  nation as to the  development,   of   the  iichsilver-lead deposits of theLardean.  The very satisfactory development  of  ii niimlier ofproperties has  convinced  the officials of   the. company   that  a  railway is  fully .warranted,   and construction work'is to be   resumed very  early next year.   Already  a   contract  ���������Has been"let for 90.000 ties, iind steel  Kasbeen shipped "with   which., to   lay  'tli^triiclTgi-TTded-a_y"ea"ri-iigorr"This-  pbrtion ��������� of   the  line.   10   miles   long,  extends   from   Lardo to Duncan City,  and it will open up  a   district   known  as the Lardc-Duncan. in   which   work  lias been going on   steadily,   notwithstanding the   suspension of   work   on  the   railway.      Within   the   past   six  months several shipments of ore  were  made from this district, notably from  the Lavinn mine/which is about eight  miles from   Lardo.   on   the line of ;,he  new- luilwivy.     Their   ore .yieled/58  ounces of silver and 70 per cent, 'lead,  thus   proving   conclusively   that   the  average   of   the   Liirdeau    silver-lead  ores is about the same asy that   of. the  Slocan, and very   much   higher  than  the avei age value of  the   ores   of   the  Coeui d'Alenes, th'.* largest  silver.-lead  district of the United Stater.   jcaaKt-Httssir BBtxr.CTnwaaHSMffivaiwsaaraaawj I  itTOipu&itt*iaKm'*'a".*''M^^  Grand Rally of Liberal-Conservatives.

There   have.  been,  it  is   true,  some  very   remarkable  cases  in  past  days  of very young persons entering upon  occupations    -usually associated    with  those of riper years.     Nelson, tor instance,  entered  the naval  service  at  the age ot 12 years, and when a mere  youth distinguished   himself   by gallant service on the Isthmus of Panama, of which a veteran might have  been   proud.      Pitt  was  a  statesman  in his  first  year  of  manhood.      We  havo  soon scions  of  nobility ou   the  Bastings in England appealing to tho  electors for support when only just at  man's   estate.      They,   however,   had  been trained from child hod for public  life.     We have had "a boy preacher"'  drawing crowds to hear his sermons.  If a youth is destined Cor business  life  we  regard   it  most  beneficial  to  him to be put into harness curly.     A  boy  is  all   the   belter  tor  being  put  early through  life drudgery of oflice  work.      There  is  much  to  lie  learnt  in tho humbler duties of business life.  It nothing else, the boy or youth can  be taught to    do everything he puts  his  hands   lo  with   eartnestness,   accuracy   and   all  his  ability.    (Such   a  habit   will   be   more    valuable    iu   u  business   career   than   "much -learning."  dorstandlng of the situation aa well  as method behind tho- ' wicked and  harmful appeals which marked the  Liberal campaign, not only in Quebec,  but wherever there were French  speaking electors ln any number.  THE SAW OFF.  THE TREES OF  ALBERTA  WHERE CRUELTY IS KINDMESS  The war between England arid tho  two South African republics Is over.  Those states have lost their capitals,  and aU their principal cities. They  have now no government, Uio cx-  preeidentoi-one republic is a fugitive  - in -Europe, and the ex-president of  the other . is also a fugitive in a  foreign country. Thoir joint array  has now no- commander lu chief, Its  ablest general Is a prisoner, as are  thousands of its ablest troops. The  Republican forces still in arms are  broken up into a number of guerilla  bands, who arc carrying ou a style  of warfare unknown to and most  repulsive to civilized powers. They  are under no responsibility to, nor  the control of any authority with  whom the English commander can negotiate. Each guerilla captain is as  independent ot the others as detached  Eordes of barbarisms or like hordes of  wilds  animals.      To   call   thoir   pro-  ��������� ceedings "war" would be farcical  were it not so dreadful, to call it  patriotism is to justify Johnson's sarcasm which defines patriotism, as  '���������the last refuge of a scoundrel."  While -. such conditions exist it is  open to groups of assassins to scour  ;*. country, murdering, plundering, destroying .public and private property,  at their .^rill. Is it to be tolerated  that these scattered, irresponsible  marauders .should be allowed to carry  devastation and death through a portion ot tlie Queen's dominions? Is  it' reasonable that those who .give  these bandits, these land pirates  shelter, aid and protection should be  *li>wrd -to encourage their depredations? Are the inhabitants of South  Africa who are longing for peace, law  yr-and-order-to^be���������"established���������for-tho-  ��������� machinery   ot   commerce   to   be   set  freely in motion, for the amenities of  ���������civil liie to be  practised,  to bo kept  in terror,  because, sets of hot-headed  men choose ,to harry the country for  ���������he mere gratification of    revengeful  malice towards the power they  have  fought .against ho madly and so vainly?     To stamp    out euch    gangs of  Riarafuders is the first, .the imperative  ���������duty  ot   .England.      This  Is a  work  ������v*a more cruel than regular warfare,  for it necesitateo the exemplary punishment -of.   non-combatants  who  are  driving assistance to the criminals.  The indignation    fxpreoer-d against  tho British for endeavoring lo destroy  <iit������e guerilla, liana;    and to root out  -Oiiilr   confederates,   is   the   most   revolting   hypo:ri.sy,   unless   those   who  effect  to be xliock'-d   thereby  believe,  4hnt   It  is dvsirnble  for  South   Africa  -4o  be kept  p<*rnetua!ly  at th."  mercy  ������������X   wandering    groups   of    murderers  -������nd property destroyers.  A NEW DEPARTMENT  An excellent suggestion, is inndti by  the Edmonton Post. The opinion  lias been held for many years that  tho Department ot the Interior ts unwieldy and has too many subjects  to look after. It lis impossible for  one minister aad one deputy,to give  thai attention to his multifarious nub-  departmonts that tho importance ot  the questions to be dealt with calls  for. Tho Post suggests'that the time  has arrived when at least one important division���������that of mining���������be  taken, .from tho Interior Department,  ami created into a new department by  itsclf. Wo quote tho Post's article  in full: ,  "In view of tho fact that    mining  has l>ecomo an Important Industry in  Canada and  assumes  greater proportions   ever  year,   thero  should   bo  a  new department created at Ottawa to  aid and encourage discovery and enterprise in  this    direction.        British  Columbia   controls   its -mining   lands  imd makes Its own mining laws, but  there is a very large area ot mineral  bearing land-In the Territories and In  flie unorganized districts to' the north  which comes under tho jurisdiction of  tho Department ot    the  Interior    at  Ottawa.      Tho mining regulations in  the Territories are    in no way satisfactory on the    prospector, to whom  every   assistance  should   bo  given   in  his arduous occupation, and instead of  encouraging him  the regulations im-  pedo and liampe-r him.     If wc had a  Mining Department'   in    thc    government, "with an  expert  like Dr.  Dawson, of the Geological Department as  minister,  mining would  come    under  liitenigent   supervision and   direction  and the prospector, meeting with encouragement,  would  work   with, more  confidence.     As it   is at present   the  mining  industry  meets  with  little  or  no favor from the Department of the  Interior, which has placed onerous restrictions   on   miners   against   which  protest   is   unavailing.       A   new   depart incut having  mining    exclusively  in its  charge  would  cost little com.  pared     with     Uie   great    benefit     it  would be to all concerned."  It is to bo hoped that there, will be  little or none of th,-.t abominable saw.  off business in connexion with tho recent elections. At a meeting of Conservatives, held in Toronto last week  the Conservatives aro said to have  made arriingenie-iits to protest Liberal  seats in cafi������ the Tory seats are attacked. Wo sincerely hope- that that  does not mean the iniquitous saw off.  We hope- that it the Conservatives  decido to protest Liberal seats they  will do so .because ttiexo is ample  evidence to unseat the men elected,  and will go on with tho business to  thc ond.  The saw off Is a good thing for  Uio lawyers���������a very good thing:; but  it is a, bad thing for tho unfortunate  people who are Induced U> put thoir  money .up for protest purposes. Jf  any Tory hns won his swat by corrupt iii-a<:Ucea, let him get the proper  rwwunl of tho crooked.and if any Grit  him dono the same thing. 1������M the protest be carried through to the cud.  The people are sick and tired or putting up money to be divided among  lawyers who arrange the saw offs  for thn two parties.  IMMIGRATION���������MORE ACCOMMODATION WANTED.  Instructive Reports of Messrs Wheeler  and Dennis.���������The Importance of  Protecting Our Forests.  This tract, extending from the Bow  river to th<? 49th parallel, has been  recently set aside as a timber reserve,  and as the department, in conjunction  with the government of Uio North  West Territories, is expending considerable money in establishing a  systoir. of irrigation for tha semi-  arid tract ������ast of these hills, it la a  matter of tho umost importance to  thc success ot tho undertaking that  the forest covering along thc valleys  of tiio streams from which the water  Is taken should not be destroyed;  otUciwlsc there will be dlsi.tr'ius  floods followed by equally destructive  droughts.  The character of tho timber in this  part together with observations as  to tho necessity of preserving it from  ilestructiou are dealt with in tho  reports oa Irrigation by Mr. J. S. Den.  nis, chief inspector, und Mr. A. O.  Wheeler, D.L.S., surveyor in charge.  Mr. Dennis says:  "It is very necessary that some in-  mediate steps should bo taken to  preserve tliu present forest areas in  thc hills, so that tho run-off therefrom  may not take thc form ot floods or  sudden freshets, as It is sure to do  if theso areas arc denuded of timber.  The Importance of preserving our  present, forest areas ou the watersheds of tho arid regions lias been  referred to in past irrigation reports,  and tho matter will bo moro fully  dealt with further on in theso pages."  Mr. WhooJer says ln his report in  1897-.  "Before closing this report it is  desired to make a slight reference  to the timber in thc foot-hills region  covered by tho operations of the  division.

The United States deep waterways  commission has reported that a 21-  foot channel from the lakes to the  Atlantic would cost ?20C,25S,000, and  a 30' foot channel $32G,8S2.000. These  are enormous figures, but with the  country able to throw off ?30.000,000  a year of taxes it' is not impossible  that they ought to be provided. The  21 foot channel would not cost more  than  a war..  THE NEXT PARLIAMENT.  The elections in Burrard and Yalo-  Caribo complete the House of Commons.

P. It. Is Doing in Makng  i      the Dominion  Known  Abroad.  Mr. J. C. Holden, president of the  Ames-Holden company, who recently  returned to Mnntrcul after a two and  a half years tour around the world,  concluded an interview in Uie Montreal Gazete as statins:  "Two things in particular are making-  Canada  more  widely  known  and j  moro   hishly    considered     the     world  over.       First,   her   part    in   the   war, I  which has excited interest not only in | sel.veU 0Il tlie slopes contiguous to the  England   but   in   every   part    of    the | 1}ow   valley   and  in     the  Baid  yMey  further east than the    distance mentioned.

Canada's reputation has never stc-od higher than now."  in growth and much weather-worn,  iloubtless by the. strong winds that  blow down tho valley In the fall and  spring of the year. In tbo mountains, the timber in the valleys ofthe  had on what are now referred to as  tho wet periods, when tlio ponds and  coulees out on the plains wore full of  water the year through,' is a matter  for discussion; that it had some connection seems highly probable.  "Bush fires occur, and cause desolation with much greater rapidity  than the tracts denuded can be covered by a new growth. This new  growth will in time act as _an efficient menass to conserve ^ moisture. It  is therefore of vital interest that the  remaining timber and the new growth  on the watershed should be preserved; not only to assist. In retaining  the moisture at present precipitated,  but as a medium for increasing the  amount of prcipitation on the watershed. At tho present time thc bush  and prairio Arcs aro, I understand,  looked after by tho North West  Mounted police; and sundry penalties for starting the same are enforced upon conviction, under the North  West Territories act. This seems  very much like locking the door when  tho horse has gone. What is un.  doubtedly wanted Is a system of  guardianship. Thc foot-hills country  Is not uniiko "a. county in England.  tn the following respect: Thero are so  many travelled roads, or pack trails,  and so many by-ways and lanes, or  less travelled and moro difficult trails.  "Prospecting, hunting and survey-  in parties and bodies of Indians going  into or passing through the country  can only travel by the trails referred  to. The main trails are. of courBO,  most travelled, and all others arc offshoots from thee������. -  "If, ln a system of guardianship,  the guardians wero placed as residents at suitable points along theso  main trails, with authority to inquire  Into the business of th������ parties travelling along ithem, to register the  names and residences ot such iw-  sons, and to warn them to exorcise  caution ln lighting and extinguishing fires built for camplntr purposes;  at the' samo time stating the ppnaltleo  under the law for starting bush fires,  it seems that a distinct check would  bo placed upon the frequent occurrence of these disasters, and a moans  provided lo bring' the origin homo to  the parties responsible therefor.  "Over natural causes, such as Arcs  started by lightning, .there can be no  control: but lt has been rumored-that  tliere   arc   other   causes;   parties "re.  quiring  dry  timber  for  market  purposes, prospectors wishing to examine  rook  outcrops,    ranchera    who    have  none too much pasture land, and chief  of   all. .carelessness   in   lighting   and  extinguishing  camp  fires'   when   high  winds  are  ln   season.      One   fact   Is  paramount;    to   control     the     ravages  of "bush   fires  in   the  mountain  aud   foot-hills   districts,   action   must  be  taken .before,  not  after the, fires  line started.     Once give a fire a. rood  start with a strong    wind    blowing,  and unless chocked by a natural barrier such as a rl"er or lake, no power  outside of a providential rain or snow  storm can extinguish It.     As an Instance of carelessness. I may mention  that a short time ago travelling over  a   trail   now   used   by. prospectors,   T.  saw  the  remains  of >,tx, recent     camp  fire that had been lighted at tlie root  of a partly dry spruce tree.     The tire  hnd lmr-ed into the heart of the t*'ee,  and had there not been an exceptionally heavy rain-fall  during the  earlv  summer,   would    have    remained    in  readiness to be fanned    into    active  life  by  thc  first  wind   coming  down  the valley.-     Supposing such a flre to  have occurred, - these men, if duly registered   and   thoir  business   and . the  route by  which  they  were  travelling  known,  eonkl  have been located, and  the penalty due to their carelessness  administered as a warning -to others."  Considering tho importance! of preserving  thc  timber along the valleys  of  theso  foot.hills    for    the  purpose  stated,   the   writer   made    a   trip  on  horseback through this territory during his recent visit in    the    country,  and found the foregoing descriptions  are accurate in  their details,  and ho  would strongly recommend    the    employment of a certain number of men  to  patrol   thc district    during    those  months of the    year when fires " are  likely to occur.      These '. men  might  also receive an appointment as guardians by the government of)tho North  West  Territories  so   as   to' have  the  authority which  their ordinance confers on such officers.
