Revelstoke Shewn to be   Now  ' .Entering Upon a Fresh Era of  Progress and Development as  the    Commercial   Centre    of  North Kootenay.  This year of grace 1001 lins heen  miu'ked hy more lliiin one aehievc-  mt'iit, which Revelstoke hits heen talking of this long t hue but lms hutl to  with, till now to see accomplished.  There ib in lhe liist place the completion of the wagon l'ond through the  canyon to Eight Mile. For this we  have to tliiir.lc our member, Mr.  Taylor and the present government,  who have been Lhe first, we have had  Lo heai'Lily recognize and endorse Lhe  reasonableness of the ideas on Lhis  subject so long conlendcd for by the  board of trade and progressive element  in lown. For veins the Ur-.it.YLD has  joined in season and out of season in  the contention that, the completion of  thi.s road was a vital necessity to the  development of the vast rich mineral  district lying noith of lievelstoke and  as a necessary consequence to the progress of the town itself. At last we  have the satisfaction of seeing these  ideas taken up by our present member  and government and carried out to  completion. By the end of the month  ii wagon road will connect this town  with the steamboat landing at Eight  Mile and one great stride will be made  in the direction of opening up the  mineral wealth ofthe Big Bend.  Further we have again the satisfaction of seeing another project which  has long been cherished by progressive  Hevelstukers well on its way to accomplishment. By the middle of next  month the" steamer Revelstoke will  leave the ways at Nakusp and take  her first.trip on the waters of the  upper river. On this head again  Revelstoke has to thank our member  and the Dunsmuir government for  coming to the aid with a substantial  subsidy of the energetic and enterprising business men of the town, who  have put up theii-good money in order  to cany^to 'completion a scheme, so  obviously calculated "to further the  future prospects of our little city. The  citizens of Revelstoke made this pio-  ject their own'hy their enlightened  and progressive vote on the bylaw  for bonussing the local syndicate,  which has it in hand and shewed that  they- knew how to appreciate the  spirit in which their fellow, townsmen  undertook the venture.  With the transportation question  into the Big Bend thus solved as far  as the first stage to the foot of Death  Rapids is concerned andTeaily fifty  miles of a mineral district rich in gold,  silver, copper and lead thus brought  within easy reach ot the town .it. cannot fail that considerable strides in  the development of the district will  take place almost at once. A glance  at Brewster's map of ��������� lhe Big Bend,  published by tlio-HEKALD will shew  that nil, the principal groups of claims  are already connected with the rivet-  by from eight to ten miles of trail, so  that once the steamer begins   to   ply,  thequestion of the transport   of  snp-  -_���������_-= ,_^_._-______, --^--. ________.___.,^.n  Duquesne Mining Co. and a local syndicate are actively prosecuting operations on placer leases of great promise  while on French and McOullougli  Creek are other rich plater properties I  and in Ground Hog Basin free milling  gold claims, which will very soon be  humming with activity once they are  placed within easy reach of their base  of supplies iu Revelsloke.  Taking these facts into consideration  it is obvious that this present year 31X11  marks the cntnmencement of what  might be culled the third stage in the  history of Revelstoke, taking ils early  years fioni its inception in 1SS4 to its  creation as a divisional point in ISOfI as  tin* (irsland the intervening or railway  town stage as the second. The taking  of the next census is just as likely to  lind it the most populous town in  Kootcir-ty its not, Lhe centre of a score  nr more of smaller places, such as the  last decade saw built up in what in  1S01 was the almost unknown wilderness of South Kootenay. We have a  better start and the Herald believes  that we have a richer territory than  even the wonderful mineral district  which includes the gold-copper proper-  Lies of Kostflund and lhe phenomenal  sit vei-lead veins of Lardeau and  Slocan.

A camp  of immense promise will then he placed  within a short day's run of Revelstoke  at its furthest points and its magnift-  c'ient surface indications,  with   which  .South Kootenay had at its initial stage  nothing at all  to   put   in   comparison  will   be   open   to  easy   development.  This camp is and always must lie   the  natural business  territory   of  Revel'  stoke.    Its development is   our  city's  development  and   while   applauding  those lo whom the successful  issue ol  thctranspoitation problem  is largely  due, to the pioneer mining men of the  camp a meed of   praise   is   also   due,  Under enormous and   heart-breaking  dilTlcultirs   the   Prince    Mining    and  Development   Co,  the   Carnes  Creek  Consolidated, the Adair Co.  and  individual   pioneers  such   as   A. W. 51c  Intosh, II. Morris, J. H.  Whyte,  E 1.  Adair,  11. Wilcox, C. J. Rumens,  J.  Sanderson,   D.   McBean.   J.   XV.  .Mc  Calluui and a score or more   of others  have Ies tilled   to   their  faith   in   the  camp from start to finish.   Their confidence and energy   is  now  about to  receive a well  deserved  reward   and  they and their local shareholders and  partners have fully,earned every bit  that is coming to them.   The last ten  years  witnessed   the   rise   of   South  Kootenay.   The next ten will see the  south outstripped by the north.  Further north on Goldstream and  its affluents aud on Smith Creek are  the well known placer and free milling  camps ofthe Big Bend, which will  share very largely in ths immediate  benefits of easy communication and  will no doubt very shortly be placed  in direct touch by a tramway round  Death Rapids and a second boat on the  river above. Now that we have once  made a start th? second steps will he  founcd almost to come of themselves  As is well known on Smith Creek  the  Of Board of Directors at Ferguson. The Ore Body Struck in  The Lower Tunnel of the  Nettie L. The C. P. R.. Negotiating to Build a Spur to the  Mine.  The directors of the Great Western  and Double Eagle Mining Co.s who  held their annual meeting at Ferguson  last Thursday came up from the Lai-  deau on* Monday's train, with the  exception of Mr. Godsal, who went to  visit the Lade-Telluride group on  Gainer creek, now owned.by a sister  company, in which he is considerably  interested. Messrs. Kirby and Walker  started back for Eugland on Thursday and Mr. Young leaves for Calgary  tomorrow.  'At the-'meetings 'the annual reports  of the directors were read and showed  both companies to'be in good financial  standing. The balance sheet of the  the Great Western Mines Ltd? showed  an expenditure in round figures dur.  ing the past year of SIS.OOO in wages,  $9000 in mining and boarding house  supplies, $0000 in packing and freighting, $1000 in government fees and  royalties and $300 in ollice expenses.  Mr. Sam Sutherland was added th the  board of directors, in order to make  the necessary number of residents of  the province on' the.board, The'  officeis of the company remain the  same. W. B. Pool, manager and A.  H. Holdich, Secretary and Ernest  Haddow of Ferguson." was appointed  assistant secretary. The Double Eagle  company reelected their directors and  officers. J. J. Young is president, W.  ,F. Cochrane vice president, W. B  Pool general manager and A. H.  Holdich, secretary.  The day before the director's arrived  a sensation was''created in Ferguson  by the shift in the drift from the lower  tunnel-of-theNettie-L--slriking-theore  body. The vein carries larger quantities of grey copper in the lower than it  does in the upper workings and is  surrounded by a zone carrying zinc, a  phenomenon observed in the deep  workings -in the Slocan. Tie  point at which the *������ ore w, s  struck wiis about 1000 feet ' n  and at a depth of 100 feet. , Tho force  on the mine is to be increased right  away. It is calculated thai, the drift  from the lower tunnel will ho bel6w  the upper working- in from 150 Lo 200  feet. When this point i.s gained and  upraises run to connect the upper and  lower workings tho Nettie li. will be  in a position to ship 50 tons of oro a  day.  Messrs. D. XV. Moore, the C.P.R. ore  buyer for the Trail smelter aud 3. G.  Sullivan, the engineer in chnrge of the  construction of the Arrowhead and  Kootenay branch were in attendance  at the directors' meeting on a mission  from Pres. Shaughnessy to consult  with the directors with regard  to the construction of a, spur  to the property. They spent two days  daya in exatning the mine and discussing the situation and negotiations  with regard to the spur project tire  still pcuding.  inspection  west.  F. XV. Peters, Assist. Gen. Freight  Agent of the 0. P. R. Pacific division  is accompanying Prof. .McLean on his  tour through thn province as freight  grievance commissioner.  M. N. Morrison. Lhe C. P. St. agent  at Regina, has returned from his holiday. He took in Toronto, Niagara,  Boston, U. S. A., the Pan-American at  Buffalo and Nova Scotia. Mrs.  Morrison is still visiting in British  Columbia.  C. J. Black, auditoi' of agencies,  James II. Shearing, auditor of passenger receipts and II. J. Dalton, chief  travelling auditor, of the C. P. St. are  making a tour over the KooLenay  lines.  ,T. S. Carter, district passenger agent  of the C. P. R. with headquarters at  Nelson, contemplales making a Lour  through the Siniilkameen and Okan-  agan districts i'or the purpose of  reporting on the resources of those  disLricts and studying the movement  of population into those sections.  The Belleville lolge of the B. L. E.  took the visiting delegates to the union  meeting on a trip down the hay last-  Thursday on the steamer AleLlia. In  tho evening the delegates were given a  banquet at.llotel Quinle, at which an  exceptionally fine programme of songs,  speeches and music was rendered.  Jos. Thompson, telegraph operator  at Macleod, is an inmate of the Leth-  hridge hospital, suffering from .appendicitis. He ' has been operated upon  ahd is bettor.    -'  A Port xVrthur despatch says :���������The  engineer on No. 0 locomotive, O. N.R.,  had a narrow escape. * He was sitting  in the cab while the engine was taking  water-at ��������� the-divisional point, "No. 16  siding, when the water tank fell over,  crushing in the top of the engine. The  engineer had just time to jump out of  the cab window. The engine was  badly wrecked.  The Minister of Mines Takes in  Revelstoke and Sizes up the  Situation Favorably.  Hon. R. McBride, Minister of Mines  and Thus. Taylor, Jl. P. P.. were in  town on Sunday and Monday. Mr.  McBride took in Lhc town very thoroughly and was introduced by Mr.  Taylor to a number of our citizens.  Speaking Lo a ]Ii_it.\i.i> reporter Mr.  .McBride said that he had just come  from a trip with D. Murphy, M. P. P.,  through thc Siniilkutnoen cam)), whure  he hail visited a number of properties  at Copper Mt., Kennady Mt., Roche  River. Aspen Grove and found the  prospects ol' the district very bright  and considerable work done, though  the district was hampered hy lack of  railway communication. This the  provincial government were taking the  first steps to supply by sending Mr.  Dewdney to make an accurate and  detailed survey fur a line through lhe  Cascades i'roni Hope. The provincial  mineralogist is now making a lour in  tho Kettle River and Boundary  country and through to Summit camp  and will report on the district. At  Princetown Mr. McBride found the  Vermillion Forks Co. opening up ox-  tensive coal fields and again at  Titlaincen City, an ideal townsite on  Otter lake, the recent salo of whose  Lown Mots by the government was  most successful, there are large eoal deposits. Returning to ' the main line  Mr. McBride visited Kamloops and  found work in full blast on the Iron  Mask under tho direction of Capt.  Argall and operations in contemplation on several other properties. He  also visited the Glen Iron mines,  situated right on the shore of Kamloops hike, which aro shipping iron  ore to ��������� the Hall smelter at Nelson for  fiuxing purposes.  Mr. McBride manifested a. ��������� L keen  interest in all our local questions and  ha-3 the situation here very accurately  sized up. He considers tho position  and prospects of the -city to he excellent and expressed great amazement  at the folly of the talk about a municipality like this with.its solid appearance, hopeful immediate future "and  trifling indebtedness being in a slale  of financial difficulty, * a rumor of  which had even reached Victoria.  Mr.   McBride   and   Mr.   Taylor left  \ csteidity morning for the Lardeau  thi his return the minisler of mines  will visit Vernon and he intends to  make a big effort to be with us again  on the occasion of the lirst trip of the  new steamer from Revelstoke to  Laporlt*.

Wednesday, August '2S. 1001.  NO-KICK COMING.  A few months ago the revelation of  the possibility that the   "great  Canadian national highway''   was just   as  likely   as any   other  highway  to   be  adde'd to J. J. Hill's  unrivalled collection of that class of curio,   came   like  a flash out of the blue sky and startled  all Canada into a roar.   Tho other day  the announcement thai just such  an  arrangement   .had   practically    been  completed in the interests of harmony  and the harmony of interests was made  ���������without attracting any attention at all.  All these kind   of   things   come   easy  once you get accustomed to tlieni.   No  doubt the final stage, when everybotly  that's left is jumping  round   working  lor the successors of J. .1. Hill and J.  Pierpoint Morgan for their grub, will  seem just as natural as possible.  ISUd a similar basis nl' .settlement was  proposed hy the company to the  ivii'.-ili.ilioii i-oiiunilli*i; who were trying Lo I'lVi'i't a settlement between Uu*  company..-mil Hit* telegraphers.

BUSINESS  MENTION  S3  ,i<-s  fi  :*.e,\  fA  +*5  ' ribb ins  ?-I ,-ulion  Revelstoke  Station.  ANOTHER INTEREST  HARMONIZED.  Ic appears-that  another   dead   immortal  cinch on the mining industry  has   been   achieved.    According lo   it  recent Denver .despatch a world  wide  copper combine has been  formed with  a view of eliminating competition   in  the purchase of copper.    The combine  is said  to have been effected between  the Amalgamated,  Calumet &   I Toola.  Senator   Chirk   and the   RoUischikls.  The report* is of course denied, ultimately,   however,   no   doubt   the copper  trust will  line  up with  its mammoth  fellows   and the copper   mine   owners  will   join   their.silver-lead    brethren  in     the    procession     to     lhe   poor-  house.    Pretty soon  Uie only avenue  left    open      for      ordinary      people  to      lose '   their     money     will    he  running   a   jackleg newspaper.    That  i* one business there will never bo any  billion dollar trust   in.    Ciet   in   early  and   avoid   the   rush.    We can   give  intending   investors   a straight   local  ���������poii-iter-on=three-con*.ing-gaie.wa.y-citie^  and distributing points anxious right  now to have a newspaper man   standing off the sheriff in their midst.  have made unreasonable demands  up  on tho company,   they  are   willing   lo  abide by imparl ial arbitration.  InsLeadcf weakening   our   position.  Ihe   report   of   Lhe  conciliation   committee will strengthen it.     As   to   the  insult offered to our president demanding   that   he   should    leave   Montreal  within twenty-four boms, thi.s simply  increases our confidence' in   him,   and  takt.it as a   compliment   paid   to   h!s  intelligence, and   ability   to   correctly  advise the committee.     Messages   and  letteis are being received  from   members of the order on   nil   parts   of   the  I system assuring out* president that   he  will have the  continued  support and  confidence   of   the   men.      Why    the  onciliation   committee recommended  unconditional surrender upon thu  part  of the trackmen is n question I will not  attempt  to   answer.     Kvery   general  chairmen, and especially at the insult  offered   through   them   t^    President  Wilson.    If they   were   influenced   to  take, such   a   course  by   the   general  manager, 1 predict he will discover   in  a short time   Unie   he   has   treated   a  "boomerang" for himself.    The end   is  not yet by any means.   The   full   protective board of railway trainmen is in  Montreal, and   members of the other  orders are arriving on every train.    It*  is reasonable to suppose that  as   soon  as the facts in the ease are known such  stops will be taken as may be necessary  to nffoid protection lo their lives, and  lhe lives of Lhe travelling public.

Strikes and Trusts.  The fact cannot fail to impress itself  upon the attention of the most careless  readers of the newspapers of the day,  that    society     on   the  continent  of  America is   at present entering   upon  .in   economic   eilsis*   of   no   ordinary  importance.     Gradually    amid    the  formation of gigantic   trusts and   the  rapid   succession   of .strikes   affecting  industrial establishment.*** all over the  continent and in the case of San Francisco    aliuo-,1    the    entire   business  interests of the city, one can observe  arising  the first sigus of an approaching   social   conflict,   the like of which  lias not yet been seen in liie history of  civilisation.    On the one hand  we see  the   bonds which   unite  the   various  sections   of   labor together  arc being  strengthened    and    interwoven,     as  never before.    On the other hand, and  this i.s a still moie ominous sign,   the  employers   of labor are  finding it imperative to unite  in order to  make   a  stand   for   their own   interests.    Not  only   ia   this  latter course of   action  exemplified   in the colossal trusts and  amalgamation of interest.*;, which since  the beginning ot tlie yen i* hnve become  so common, as hardly to attract much  attention, but in the case of San Francisco it has taken the simple form of a  common stand of employers against  the common enemy the unions.   The  tale is most instinctive.    In that city  within   the last  few  months a great  revival of trades unionism   has   taken  place.   The result has been the organization of all employer!.-to resist "union  dictation."    The   cooks  and   waiters  were    the   people,   whose   strike *��������� is  credited with causing  this movement   .  of the employers";   These people wereo  working  seven   days  a  week,   from  twelve   t-o   sixteen   hours a   day,   for  from four to ten dollars a week. iTKey  struck for a universal twelve hour day  and one day's  holiday  a,  week.   The  demand, so far from being excessive,  strikes   one as being quite ludicrously,  inadequate to the situation.    Some of'  the smaller restaurants gave in but all  the   big   ones refused the demands of   '  the union.    The wholesale  butchers  then took a hand and   refused to sell  meat to   retail   butcher shops displaying tlie.ut.ion card.    After defeating a  consequent strike of the  journeymen,  butchers   inside    of   tliree days,  the  wholesalers   next gave au order  that  no meat was to be sold to restaurants  displaying   the -union card  and  the  union- cards have in   consequence disappeared. ���������  Then came the.lockout of the boss  draymen. This was a direct assault on  the teamsters union, which was at  'peace with all the transfer companies  except "one. During the Epworth j  League convention the employes of the "  other companies were ordered to help  out this particular one. They refused  audjthe Employers Association ordered  a lockout. The. Waterfront Federa^  tion came to .'.the- assistance of .the  teamsters, who belong to. it and'  ordered a strike of all the unions in  the federation in a body, which has  tied up the water ti-affic in and out of  San Francisco.  Such a condition of affairs as this is  a symptom, which cannot be overlooked.. Turning in other directions -  we see the Amalgamated Association  of Steelworkers confronted by the  United States Steel corporation and  the ��������� International Association of  -Machinists opposed by the. National '  Mela.1 Trades Association. In the  United States the new organization  the United Brotherhood of Railway  Employes is making great strides and  in the face of ahe conditions confronting railway men since the amalgamation of the railroad systems in the  States commenced, it can hardly be  wondered at that it is.

The  amount of misery, suffering and loss to  the working classes, to the employers  and the community at huge caused by  these strikes is incalculable'.. But by  common consent the governments of  America State or Federal, Dominion  or Provincial have apparently agreed  to care for none of these things. At  the same time we nre gleefully invited  by the capitalist press to take note of  the fact that the lemcdy adopted by  the government of New Zealand,  compulsory arbilintion, has according  to Premier Seddon nf that colony, the  author ofthe meastii e. proved a failure.  Hes.iys.'so they teil it**, that, "the  system ist ridden to death by the ,  woikers, industry is hampered antl  employers are in a continual turmoil."  This is a sad stale ,if things. Yet if  one may judge by the repot ts of congestion of business in the ordinary  law courts the universal tysiem of settling differences by the aid of a judge  and jury might be represented, if one  close, as ridden to death. Yet no one  proposes to go back to the ancient  method of ordeal *by battle. And one  may very reasonably doubt, if industry  is more hampered and employers are  more in a continual turmoil in New  Zealand on account of compulsory  arbitration than tbey are over the  whole Pacific coast at this minute on  account of the San Francisco strike.  At all events if the governments of  the United States and Canada intend  to preserve an attitude of masterly  inactivity and to abdicate all the  usual functions of government in the  presence of the conflict between capital  and society, which every thinking  man knows is rushing upon ns by  leaps and bounds, it means that  capital in the end will win. Capital  is  in   its   essence  both   conservative  (Continued on pege;2;  .'���������Jl  ������3i w.*-sw.^fM*:^irTr?rw.r^  ^���������^-Sfl-*^^^ ���������  *,J.Vf������(*"/;(t'A:,it_:*^>vvv  ������* JW .l- ItnU.

Monday Nights Meeting j  There was not asullicient attendance  at the meeting called hy the mayor for  Monday night and liis Worship was  compelled to let, the few who did  assemble go without, anything heing  done. The excuse put, up is thai, nobody knew about, it. The aldermen  present at Friday night's council  meeting knew about it but not one of  them turned up. The fact that there  was going to be a meeting was mentioned three times in last Siiitui'diiy's  lll*:ii.\i.ii. Once as a notice signed by  the mayor, once in the local column  and once in the report of the council  meeting. That ou^ht to be siilVicient  notice.  However there was only a small  handful present and nothing wus done.  It senilis to the II iSKAi.n that in thus  ignoring the. proposition of the Vancouver receptioncommittee, lhe people  of Revelstoke are acting very short  sightedly.

Echoes of this kind  of senseless gabble have even reached  Victoria antl ii cabinet minister who  was in town this week was asking the  Herald what in the name of goodness  people in a place shewing every evidence of progress and stability, owing  under $30,000 of municipal debt, mvanl  by giving a black eye to their own  town in this shameful and unwarranted milliner.  Neither is the objection that thc  arch should be erected here worth  while discussing. Whether or no it  will be necessary or even possible to do  anything here it is at present impossible to say. For all we know the  l oyal party may go through here at  night and there is really veiy little  hope that, in any event tliey  will spend more time here  than is necessary for n change of engines. The present arrangements are  that their royal highnesses will meet  the people of this province at Vancouver and Victoria. They cannot be  expected to take stock of all our little  potty local rivalries. They doubtless  look on this province as a united whole  and it is a far more becoming and  broadinitided attitude to take to fall  in with thiSjView of the matter than to  make thc royal visit an occasion for  airing those small and senseless jealousies.
