M. J. Duchesnay Talks  of thc   New |  Tourist Mecca.  Panoramic beauties are varied and  manifold in the undisturbed wilderness  among lhe glaciers, gorges and can-  vons within n day's journey of Field,  B. C, where a party of "explorers,  Iheaded by 15. M. J. Duchesnay, superintendent of the Pacific division of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, recently  made discoveries that, have'moused  considerable interest in scientific  circles, as well as among prominent  botanists because of the exquisite flora  found on the high level meadow  which furnishes pasturing for innumerable wild goats. Mr. Duehestiny.  who opened the trail leading to this  new place of interest that extends  over an area of considerable magnitude, arrived in Montreal a few days  ago to confer with the management of  the railwav as to further explorations,  and when seen at the Windsor hotel,  -poke briefly of the new country that  will be opened to tourists this year,  says the Montreal Gazette.  "The great Illecillewaet. of which  remarkable glacial range so much has  been written hv Ihe leading explorers  of Europe, does not overshadow in its  magnitude and grandeur lhe glaciers  to Ihe north of Field." he said. The  panoramic view is indiscrihable, and  has no comparison miywheie on the  American continent. The canyons  are abrupt, and the walls, hundreds of  'eet in height, form gorges through  which Ihe the torrent streams run.  The swirl of the waters in the soft  ��������� imestone formations has worn caves  below the Three Forks. Probahly  one of the grainiest, sights is thn view-  between Mounts Collie and Balfour,  which stand out like mighty fcentinels  guarding the beauties of nature at its  'le.-t. Another is front Lookout, the  peak of which] is 7,500 feet above sen  level. From it cnn be had views to all  parts of lhu compass, showing the  Van ��������� Home ranges tti lhe west to  advantage.' I  Mi-.:Duchesnay said that trails had  been blazed to Lookout, and to a point  opposite Wapta Falls.' where ihe  water drops over a ledge 1.200 feet  above the Mil face of the pool, also  from Lookout to Summit Lake. The  company, he said,! was now considering plans In erect platforms on the  rocks with a view of encouraging  tourists to visit this charming spot in  British Columbia.  ��������� Rooms lo rent.

The   city   council   for   1001   met on'  Monday   night   according   to statute. ���������"  | All the members weie present  In opening the  meeting  the' mayor'  took uu-nsionto mention a few matters'  | to wliich he thought the attention of  the council might profitably bo  directed. The fitst was better transportation facilities   out  of   the   town  | especially in lhe Big Bend direction.  He thought the council should take  Lhis point up and work either for lhe        r  |wngon road or a steamboat service.  Another need of the  lown   which   tho  j council should endeavor lo 6upply was'  'a'recreation ground iu a centra^  location. He thought they should also '  urge upon lhu provincial govei nment  lhe desirability of erecting a jail here,  cunsideiitig the wretched state of tbo  present building nnd the large expensA  eniaiied on tlie corpoiation through'  sending prisoneis io Kamloops and  other places. The council should also  urge   ihe   Dominion    government   to '  giant titles to all land in Revelsloke.  Thu l,-i6t council had taken up this  matter and had succeeded ' in getting  many of the titles granted, hut there;  weie others yet still ungranted. Tho  matter nf tiie grant for fire protection  pin poses was one which they should  al.-o go inlo with the provincial government. He did not know whether,  these grants weie. stopped altogether  but at all pvpnts Revelstoke was not  getting any.- He proposed also that  Lhe method of keeping the acc< lints of;  lhe debenture motley .should bo  ��������� mproved, so that one could arrive at'  lhe actual standing ni the account,-ind v .  where every cent had heen  expended.

Anothor objection to the ward  system isthal it permits ot the election to the council of men who do  not represent the views of tho whole  body of voters. It is claimed and  with reason that the men who are  entrusted with the nianagemont of a  city'us business should represent tho  whole city rather than any particular  district. The ward system limits  thc 'choice of representatives, for ln  many cities as in Calgary as the law  stands at present ,a candidate may  offer himself for election .only in the  ward In which lie resides. If there  are not within the limits of that ward  a sufl'eicnt number of candidates  whom thc voters bolive to be fit and  proper persons thon the voters havo  to he content with any men who arc  willing   to  offer   thoir  services.  The uucstion of the abolition of the  ward system is one which the City  Council should whon applying to thc  North West Assembly for amendments to Un* City ' Charter  should       see       to.

The- people o������ Canada nud  more particularly of Western Canada  have* frequently expressed their disapproval of the policy of the present  administration in peopling this country with thousands of objectionable  immigrants from eastern Europe, at  the experts-:* of the Canadian people,  The latest warning comes from lhe-  Winnipeg Tribune in an article which  well expresses the feeling of the poo-  P-l-s of the 'West, regardless of politics���������wiih regard to this question:  It can hardly be denied, says the  Tribune, that the peopling of a  new country is one of ihe most important matters that can engage llie  attention ot the government. "Whether this problem has received the consideration it should have mc with  from the government of Canada is a  question that is open to grave doubt,  It is easy to write .growing accounts  ci the Dominion, to publish ihem in  neat pamphlets adorned with engravings representing beautiful landscapes and prosperous hom*.'.-:i..>a<ls.  to have these pretty little books reproduced in. perhaps, a tcoro of  foreign languages and distributed in  all-the countries of .Ecrone.    If. the  his duties, and as the government are  not iu tho habit-of dismissing competent ofllcers without a good reason,  wo. conclude lhat thje assertion made  by the Free Press, connect ing Mr.  Thompson's name with partisanship,  must be the reason why that gentleman now finds himself minues the  lurialive office ho held for nearly five  years under Liberal administration."  'Conicmtsntly unless it. is a fact  thnt he acted aa a partisan during  the recent elections, Mr. Thompson  should not have been dismissed.

The results of such education will  not only be noted in thc .improving  in our stock but in the rancher himself.  Must it not strike every newcomer  as a bad sign of prosperity of our  ranchers^ when he travels over the  country Ad sees the shed-like structures, cRTled houses, in which our  ranchers spend their home life. Barn  of paint or any ornaments, nailed  together of rough boards, without  being surrounded by a single green  leaf of a tree stand those landmark*  ot our great Industry in tho open  prairie. What there Is in barns Ib  still worse than the houses, and  fences aad"gate's are. mostly in tumble  down condition. Truc-^thoro are exceptions but those can be .counted on  the flngors ot one hand,'   "  Educate then the coming' rancher  to beautify his home, his surroundings, have him plant trees, and one*  he has accomplished this he will soon  see that his animals ought to bo  handled more like himself ln order tw  accomplish results. Learn" tho rancher to love his chosen life, and make  him believe and feel-that llTing on a  ranche is1 not only "vi necessity but a  pleasure for himself and his family.  When this point Is reached all is  won, because a rancher th'at seeks  aiid'nns interest in the handling and  care of his live stock, a rancher that  is proud of his profession and feels  that his is the moat Interesting "and  inspiring life, is''bound to learn  whereever he can and make a successful man in the-,end.    -'  Not having'had' a chance to acquaint myself fully with our laws. I  have noticed, however, that certain  things done' fully In accordance with  the existing laws tire actively against  the interest o fthe rancher or the Bet-  tier  in  general.  Taking for instance t.he permitting  of mtiking hay on government and  C. P. R. landu.  Does it not seem unjust to allow  anybody to go out in thw prairie and  cu,t hay as much as his heart desires,  while* often the settler has to go, (in  consequence of this generosity, of the  government in issuing permita to  Tom. Dick and Harry, many miles  from his homestead to find enough  hay for the wintering of .his,.stock.  In my opinion, if hay lias, to bs cut  for the purpose of selling it in the  market, let the* man have the benefit  that spends his money in the district  where he lives ant! not gtvo such'  privileges to men that eke out a living as cheap as possible and take  away the money to be. sneni. pIhp-  whei'o. thereby not only robbing the  rancher of his winier feed ' for his  cattle, but also' the community of dollars and cents th������ settle*.* or "ar.eti������~  would have to spend had he cut and  sold the hay. In my opinion a hay  permit should only b������ granlod to  actual settlers ancl not speculators.  Our homestead-laws could also stand  a little aiiientimcnt. in so far as.  where a homestead Is desired to ue  taiten up in the immediate neighborhood of a settler, -such settler snottld  "ne nolilled before homestead rights  arc granted and thereiore the homesteader compelled to state In his  homestead application his nearpsr  neighbors, such little courtesy from  the government to actual settles  spare the latter seeing  himself "closed in" and give mui a  chance to extend before too late.  Farmers' sons seem to be osneclal  favorites under thu present iawa anct  I think what is due them ought to  he due the settler that comes here  and invests hir. money and not nnlv  tal-:e-h up homesteads for speculation.  Another  iitlte  point    worth,    men-  A  Number of Radical  Suggestions.-������������������  An  Experienced  Stockman Gives  his Opinion of the Cattft Industry.  The "following  letter  has   been   received . from C.  Schultz, a  man who  has had much experience in" the stock  business:.  There     is   probably   uot. a     Bingle  business in the North West that does  not  moro  or  ioss  depend, upon  our  live stock   mdustrv.     As .in a- farm-;  ing country A everything depends < upon  a   good   harvest,   so  in, a  Uvt*. stock  district '��������� prosperity   or    hard    times  change with the results of ranching.  Here  in  Alberta  with  our  magnificent climate.' with our abundance of  wild grasses and hav we can almost  with   certainty  tell  beforehand  what  our   crop   in  live stock  will   be  and  thc   chances  of   failure   are   far  loss  than  in  farming    where    everything  has  to  be  loft for  Providence  after  the farmer has none his duty in helping  nature 'to  oroduce  a sood   crop.  Yet in'  spite of these facts, with the  best 'resources  and  an    Ideal    stock  country -what do    wn    raise? . . True.  there are a few ranches that import  or buy from local importers or dealers once in a while a good bull or" a  good cow aud try to improve their  stock, but thl3 alone will not do, tho  offsprings will bo just as poor creatures without proper care, as the  ones that now adorn our hr-autiful  prairie  The idea seems to prevail here  that all a rancher has to ao. Is to  buy a lot of anv kintt of cattle, send  them out into God's 'iroation and let  the poor brutes takn cnr������ ot themselves, while tue rancner buys a  broucho. a. nair of raining .".ours and  a, Stetson hat, and so adorned sits  around in thc hotel lobbies and linlps  to fill the spitooue.  But this kind of ranching will not  help to build ud a great Industry anlo  to compete with the products  such rivals as the United States, the  Argentine Itopubllc anil other smallor  competitor.",.  .

In reselling again this method can  bo followed up, everytimc confining  the branding simply to thc vcntlnit,  thus the brand would all be close together, the hide remain of some  value, and tho animal as little as  possible disfigured and tortured, a  fact which is well worth considering  both from a financial as well as from  a humane standpoint.

Jnok at the  buildings thereon, the -fences, the  planting of trees, tho painting of  buildings, the amount of land under  cultivation, variety of crops and in  fact the general appearance nf the  whole ranche. and give- prizes, high  prizos, to The one that scores-highest.  Not only the prizes would he stimulants, hut the'fact thai the neighbors  are doing Koinothln;,' would ��������� inspire  others to do likewise.and I'ilo'believe  lhat a few years of such mode of  awarding prizes would create wonders In tho nr.i'.i'aranre of our life  stock and the ranches -itself, and  would, acomplish what fairs and ex-  peisitlons never will .do.. Certainly  the committees should be carefully  selected and consist of mon that aro  above reproach in every respect and  they should not. only judge by the  appearance of ranche and cattle, but  also under what conditions tho results are gained so that even tho  poorest rancher, if ho is a hard  worker and does what he can wilh  has limited weans, would hav.e a  chance of winning a prize as well as  tlv.* rancher that can put his hand in  his I'tickul and create everything bv  r.Mng  the.alr.iightv dollar.

This refors to the fact not heretofore  discluoeed, but confirmed by the testimony of United States Consul Wm.  B. Sandersby at Grewtown that the  great British shipping firm of Forward Brothers obtained from Nicaragua in September 1897 a thirty, year  concession of a monopoly in transportation on the San Juan river, from  Lake Nicaragua to the Caribean Sea.  Unless this concession is bought ot  an agreement made to pay British j  holders royalty, the existence of the!  monopoly will bar the United States i  of the ownership of' the canal via  the San Juan river until 1927.  Tho British company can demand  royalty on every vessel and every ton  of cargo passing through tho San  Juan section of thc canal. It has  heretofore been supposed by the public that the only concession in the  way of the Nlcaraguan canal were  those of thc Maritime- Canal company  and thc Cragin-Eyrc syadicate, both  American companies.
