Kilpatrick,  then arose and pronosfd the toast of  "Onr Guest." He said that during the  four years in which Mr. Duchesney  had held the position of superintendent, his courteous and ever obliging  disposition hud won the esteem of all.  It must he an occasion of congratulation to him, to see such a gathering  assembled to do him honor. He himself had heen closely connected with  Mr. Duchesnay for the past four years  and had always found him a man of  tireless energy, re-uly lo listen to  reason and kind to those in trouble.  IIk felt that he was voicing the sentiments of all in wishing him success. in  his new position and in expressing a  hope that he might continue to climb  until he reached the top. (Prolonged  applause.)  ln reply Mr. Duchesnay thanked the  company - for the hearty manner, iu  which they had drank his health and  for the splendid banquet, at which  they hod eutertained him: The chairman had been kind enough to pay bim'imttntB, which he felt that* he  did not deserve. As he looked around  the tftble he could see the faces: of  many, whom he .could rdmsmber  sharing , with him the   hardships; ot  t'ltoueer railway life forthaUat 16 or  8 years. Amongst his oldest ffcllpw  -employes was Mr. T. Downie, ttbOt^t  whom he regtetted that be had. nevtr  been able to inquire titer Mr*. Downie  but he thought there were still hopes  for him. _ Others were Bob. Watniore,  who had shared with him the' hardships iif 1880 on the north shore of  Luke Superior" and the veteran road-  master, Bill Newman, whose always  smiling countenance had often inspired confidence at dangerous times  iunong thu most nervous. He was  glad to see his bid comrades occupying  the places of .trust in the company's  service." which they did. After eleven  years oi residence in British Columbia  he had got' to love the country, its  people arid its grand scenery. The  feeling of restraint felt in the east was  left behind after crossing the Rockies.  It was a country of young men und of  progress.      .   , ���������' _1  :. Four years ago he came to Revelstoke new to his duties.,us superintendent, but. the loyalty of this fellow  employes had lightened his task., He  wanted to s*:vy thut he had not got a  black mark against any one of them  and in so saying he "spoke from, the  bottom of his heart: He Wanted to take  advantage of" the occasion to thank  tlieni 'for this loyalty and for the,yery  harmonious feeling... which '.prevailed  among them...-. .'As superintendent tl e  exigencies of his'position liiightVhave,  forced him at.times'lo appear, severe;  His aim had been to be'just to alf- and  if.he h'itd-'-'fai.ed'.in--'this 'particular  instance he -begged for -. forgiviuess;  ils the failnre was unintentional  There was a constant,;weeding__��������� out  process going on in the .service and'  men,' who like those around him hau  served one company for ten or twelve  years were good men and good" friends  to trust.  Hu thanked the citizens of Rove'*  stoke und Golden tor their presence.  They were two -cities to he proud- of  and their interests and the interests or  the company .were closely'linked together and the company-watched with  tin* greittest care the progress made by  both. He complimented . -Revelstoke  on I.he advance- made in municipal  atfaiis und on the personnel .of the  city council and the newspapers, which  were presided over by editors of  exceptional intelligence. Both Golden  and Ruvelstoke had hia best wishes for  their future progress. He conclnded  by thanking the company again for  the kind wishes expressed on his  behalf.  The toast list, was" varied by songs  from Messrs. Young and Cross, both  of" whom acquitted themselves admirably.   . '  After the official part of the programme had been finished, -> the  cohipany-pettled-down-inr-a-big^-tui.p  and ,*v number of toasts were proposed,  s eeches made and songs sung. "The  c'ress" brought Messrs Haggen and  Lucas to their feet and "The Professions" was responded to hy Dr. Proctor,  Carrnthers and Cross und Messrs  MeCarter and Scott, In replying "to  the'toast of "Revelstoke" Mr. H. J.  B an ns made a palpable hi when he  drew-Mr. Dnchesnay'b atu-ntion to the  point, that the C. P. R.'railway station  and uHU-ei s hud by no moans kept  pace with the general progress with  wliich lw had complimented the town  a id urged that, the lime hud arrived  .vli'Mi this matter should be remedied.  T The early morning" birds were conducting an animated search for the  traditional worm before the last of the  company came to the conclusion that  the Duchesnay banquet, like all things  else, must sooner or later come to a  close. .   m  -*/  ON THE HIGHWAY  Items of Interest to Railway  Men Picked Up From All  Over by the Herald.

THE SGEHIG ROUTE  The Canadian Alps Will Become  the Playground of the Continent.  T. E. Wilson, the well known guide  at Banff aud other C. P. R. shew points  in the mountains came in on Saturday  night on business uud stayed over for  the Duchesnay banquet. Tom expects  Mr. Whymper, the celebrated Alpine  climber to be out in June with four of  the most famonu guides in Switzerland  to tackle the ascent of Mt. Assinihoiup,  a very precipitous peak in the Rockies  about 11,000 feet high, which has  never yet been surmounted though  several attempts have been made. The  mountain lies about 21 miles from  Banff in a southerly direction. The  (J. P. R. have voted $110,000 this year  for extension of their hotel at Banff.  They also intend to pay special  attention to Field, where a new hotel  is to he built and where Mr. Wilson  has arranged to keep a supply of  hoises for the convenience of sightseers. The pewly explored country  round that point contains thn loftiest  waterfall ou the continent, which was  visited by the Pennsylvania Photographic Club some three years ago  under his guidance. Thn* is also a  glacier," compared with which the well  known cna at Glacier Is only- a baby.

Tht. printing and publishing  business, which has been con-:  ducted for the last four years in  Revelstoke by Mr. A. Johnson,  has been acquired by The Rkv-  klstokk Hkrald Publishing  Co., Limited1 Liability, . which  will carrv on the business under  the same management a.s has  heretofore conducted the affairs  of the paper.  For over four   years now   the  course of the  Herald  has been  directed with a single eye to the  advancement  of the   interests of  the citv and district of Revelstoke  and  the paper   can   fairly   claim  that   in   whatever   progress   has  been    made  since    1897  .it  has  borne its share of the burden ancl  heat of the day.    This object will  ever   remain   a   prime   consideration ofthe Hkrald.      Its news  columns will still contain a complete and  accurate  report 01   all  mining   and    business     activity  within the district and it will still  continue to advocate with all  the  abilitv   at    its    command   even-  project   which   appears   to   it ,to  make for  the  development, and  welfare of the extensive and valuable region" of which  Revelstoke  party and its criticisms of the  opposing faction are so largely  discounted by the public as  of vek- little value or influence.  Independence does not,: however,  imply neutrality. The Hkrald  will ^continue to endorse as  forcibly as the occasion seem ���������' to  demand such'projects and measures as appear to it tov make  for the general welfare ari'd pro-  cress of the community and- to  denounce in the same way such  as in its opinions are detrimental  to these objects.  ln conclusion thc -Hickald  begs to acknowledge thc very  waffn and hearty support which  it has received from all classes of  this community since its inception. We feel sure lhat the  public of Revelstoke will be  quick to grasp the advantages  which must accrue to the town  as the place of publication -of a  journal with the vastly widened  objects at which the Hkrald  now proposes to aim and that thc  support ancl sympathy which it  has ever received ^as a purely  local journal, will be even still  more readily accorded to it now  that it has entered upon a broader  sphere of activity, by the public  spirited citizens of this important  railway centre and the residents  of the'rich and extensive district  of which it is the social and  business capital.  rrr^icr'^.yr-j^     *\**^W;*!"X*,_*"."'.  At the same  has   recognized  is the business centre.  time the Hkrald  for   some   time  past that there exists in the West  a   journalistic   field   as   yet'  unoccupied.    While   almost  every  class of occupation, the   business  interest, the mining interest, the  '"���������lumbering    interests     and     the  various professional interests find  reach- advocates of their  claims  and   requirements   in   the   press,  one class of workers,  one. of the  largest   and   most   important   of  them    all,     the     railway    men,  ��������� remain-without-an-organ-to-voice  their   requirements   and   provide  the special news, in  which,   as  a  body, .    they      are     particularly  interested.    This long felt want  the   Hkrald intends   henceforth  to   make   it   a   special   object   to  supply.       The new plant, which  has just been installed in premises  -specially    constructed     for     the  business, will enable us in  future  to handle the paper in  a manner  which    has    not    hitherto    been  possible.    These new faculties it  is our intention to devote  to  this  new object.     Our'aim   .is   to  be  the local organ  of every  railway  man in the west.     Arrangements  are   rapidly   being   perfected   by  which we shall secure correspondents   at   every   railway   point   of  importance in Alberta and British  Columbia and   railwav   men  will  find   the   Hkrald   a   complete  epitome of all the latest  news  of  lheir friends and   comrades  pur-  -suing their   calling   within    that  district,   while   special   attention  will be  given to   all    matters   of  importance   to    the   welfare    of  railwav men   as   a   class  of   the  community.  In politics the Herald will in  future maintain a strictly Independent attitude.. The days of  the old "through thick and thin"  ���������supporter of one party or the  other are rapidly coming to a Both its advocacy of the  men   and   measures  of its  own  T& THE  RAILWAY MEN  OF WESTERN CANADA  'For   the  successful    inception,  and   carrying out   of our project  of ��������� conducting    a    semi-weekly  journal specially devoted to your  interests'it is obvious   that   your'  active     cooperation    is   a   chief  requisite.   The main factor ofthe  future success of tlie Hkrald  as  a Railway Mens' journal  will be  the   continuous  .presentation    of  the   local   and j persona^   news  relating to the great brotherhood  of railroad employes throughout  the districts,  which * wc   propose  to cover.    The  only way, which  we can obtain this class of  news  is through   the assistance of railwav   men themselves.     Railroad  men   form  a community of their  own, in   which much   goes on of  interest and   importance to themselves,     which      the      ordinary  newspaper   never  gets hold   of.  This   is the kind of items, which  it will be our aim to supply  and  we   look  to  you   to further this  object.   We want correspondents  atjevery railway point in   British  Columbia   and . Alberta.      The  items   furnished by them will be  perused  with' interest   by'  their  comrades of "the   road   over   the  whole railway   system   of   these  two provinces.

It was surmised   that   something was wrong with No. 439,   and' it  was decided to go ahead cautiously and  locate the trouble.   Before starting, a  man turned up staggering through the  drifts alongside the  coaches,   covered  with snow, wet, tired   and   breathless.  It was fireman   Bott,   of   the   missing  engine.

THE SECRET  The Ubiquitous Railway Spotter Plays His Silent Part ih  Every-Department and Even  the Spotters Themselves are  Spotted.  Rapidly, progressing with railway  development, the secret service de-  p.-titinent has become a vast machine,  perfect in its work and entering into  every detail of the lives of the employes. Tlie railroad spoiler is a  lixturennd beyond here and there one  of I hem being discoveied, where the  reigii of law is tempered with considerable peisonal idea of justice, which  declines a ride 5011 a rail or 11 new suit  of'tarand hen feathers to heabouf, the  proper thing for him, the spotter  works sileiuly among his fellows,  betraying almost their inmost secrets  t'o their employers. ,  'If there is one member of the  Brotherhood oi'-*Railio,id Trainmen  who believes that there is such ;i .thing  as   absolute   secrecy   in   his  personal  drawn I'i um every branch .ofi hi* Tti'adV  operating slnlf.

The   feeling   which   fulminates   in   a  general stiikeis not the  result.of'iine  act alone, but a slow growth made   up  of  many   grievances,   real or fancied.  To keep truck   of   the shifting   mental  attitude of his employees is the aim |of  this  railroad   president.    If   a certain  division superintendent has made himself   unpopular   with his subordinates,  information     lo    that     effect  conies  ���������by   underground   wire' to the ce'iitriil  ollice, and the matter is   Laken   under  advisement.

In every department of the railroad  service the spotter is plying his trade  and 'there is nothing that escapes his  notice.' From thu oflice of the president to the flag shanty on the. country  cross roads, there is a system ' of  espionage th-it no man, except the  chief-of the department, unde-rstands  fully. Everywhere in the service the  spotter" woiks his way and perhaps  unknown to himself, in fact, generally  so, the man next to him may be  spotting him. lt is conducted rn the  principle that it'tiikes a rascal lo catch  a rascal, hence the icason for spotting  spotters.  The men in the. train service have  suffered almost as much from the  lying'proclivities of this'_lass of gentry  as Ihey have from irue statements and  it i.*. unnecessary to say that the  spotter is regitided as the arch enemy  of the --ei-vice. yet to tell who he is. or  where be i.*-. i*. alw.ivs a question.

Tlie   Hickald   begs   to   join  most heartily   in the   congratulations   ancl   good    wishes,   which  were showered   upon   the   newly-  promoted      Assistant       General  Manager,   Mr.     Duchesnay,   on  Mondav   night.     An     old    time  and   devoted   official of the great  organization,     which     he     has  served   so   well and  so long, his  courteous   and   obliging    nam re  has   made him at the   same time  most   popular    and    universally  respected    among    the    outside  public.    The remarks  which   he  made at the   banquet   in   answer  to    the   toast   proposed    by    his  successor in  thc superintendent's  office   testify   to   the   goodwill,  which   he    bears  to   Revelstoke  and    evidently   came   from    his  heart.      The    Mi.KAi.r_>     thinks,  however,     that     Mr.      Bourne,  answering to   the toast of "Revelstoke," scored a point, when in  referring   to   Mr.     Duchcsnay's  description of the,progress made  bv this city, he called   his attention   to   the   fact that the station  and offices of the C. P. R.   company   here  have  by   no  means  kept  up    with    the   procession.  This i.s   a fact, which   cannot be  gainsaid and thc Mkkald would  urge upon Mr. Duchcsday to use  his   increased    influence   in   his  higher position in the company's  service to get   this   shortcoming  remedied.  leaped^ He struck_a~bno'.v---dt-il*t--ariu--  execnteda series of evolution" that  made him see moie slurs than Sir  John Herschel ever discovered.

The Emma gold beach and Middle Park creeks claims are promising  big returns, and causing great  excitement. One hundred dollars was  shoveled to the pan from Emma gold  bench last fall, and extensive preparations are now being made to open  up operations as soon as the weather  will permit.  Ho also states that the prevailing  epidemic of disease among the Indians at Holy Cross mission and all  points along the lower Yukon river  is over. Those whohave been ill are  rapidly recovering. He stopped at a  number of villages and found tho  natives fairly well supplied with provisions.  A Dawson despatch to the Skag-  way Alaskan on March 21st says:  News has been received here ot a  big strike at' Pelly. The usual preparations arc being made for a stampede, and by tomorrow the boys will  be starting out In squads.  The heaviest snow ever recorded ts  now In the Yukon basin. Ab the Indians would say "big water" is expected. There is considerable fear  hero that Dawson may become Inundated, and thousands of dollars worth  of damage done.  There Is great activity at present  on all of the company boats'wintering here. In anticipation of an early  breakup of the ice they are all being  put in readiness for the opening* of  the season. Paint Is being spread by  the mile, and the noise of the carpenters' saw and the echo of the  engineers' hammer being music tor  the "sourdough" ears for he can almost imagine that he seea the ice  going out, so active have the people  around the boats been during the  past week.  Another Dawson despatch gives  news* ot the -vast number of stakes  put in somo claims during the recent  stampedes when the government  claims' were thrown open.  Probably the most curious feature  of tho entire stampede was the rush  to* Gold Run-and-Eureka creeks. Men  went out "from Dawson on bicycles,  with dog teams,-horse .sleds, and* In  every conceivable'way. claim  on'Gold Rim it is said 80'men put  down'-stakes, ahd then started in a  wild chase to record. At the mouth  of Gold Run there was a wild scramble  of 100 men to got possession of three  claims, while across on the right fork  of the Eureka. 23 stakes were set side  by side on one claim.  J.' Harmon Casey, who Is manager  of the Dawson News on "his arrival  at' Skagway from Dawson said that  Dawson would soon be Incorporated.  The recent prohibitory orders from  Ottawa calling for the-closing of the  shops' of the whisky men has had  the effect of causing the big company  managers who heretofore opoBed ..incorporation, to change their views.  He said: "It is my judgment tnat  ex-Mayor Grant of Victoria will be  the-first mayor elected in Dawson,  and I predict for'him a clean and  efficient administration,"  Writing from Dawson on Marcb Id  a correspondent " of tho Skagway  Alaskan, says: "Market conditions  in Dawson-are in a fairly satisfactory  state, both as regards visible supply and prices. In nearly all lines  there are ample quantities stored in  the many warehouses - to last until  the spring when the opening of the  river will .permit fresher goods to be  brought in, while the tendency is for  prices to hold firm.

He will  then continue to Hong Kong, proceeding along thc Chinese coasts. He  will then visit Australia, thence  through the southern seas to the west  coast of South Africa, to the Cape, ���������  incidentally advertising tliis city to  the best of his ability, and up the,  coast of Africa. He will then complete his hazardous trip at London  and will write a* book and give lee-,  tares, illustrated  by limelight. views.  This is a brief outline of the tour  which will be followed with interest  by all the people of this city. ,  THE LUCK OF THE COMPANY  London, April 4.���������From a statement mt^e by Mr. Chamberlain, the  colonial secretary, in the .house ot  commons, it appears that the South  African war has relieved the British  Chartered South African company* o������  all financial liability in regard to tho  Jamieson raid, the colonial secretary  admitting that the claims of tho  Transvaal had not passed to Great  Britain as the rceult of conquest.
