The preparations for the reception  of the royal parly nnd the laying of  thc foundation stone were nil complete  bright and eurly on Sunday morning.  The temporary platforms and sidewalk  on the hospital ground were all ready  owing to the energetic work of H. A.  Brown, who hud the superintendence  of that part of the work. Supt.  Kilpatrick had carried out his share  and the corner stone was in place.  W. Cowan had the arc lights up and  the word "Welcome" arranged in  electric lights on Lhe arch, which was  very prettily decorated with branches  and flags. At the station John McLeod  had completed his decoratious and  very pretty the platform looked with  its background of evergreens, brightened by festoons of union jacks' and  streamers of the Duke cf Cornwall  and York's colors, red, yellow and  green. At the east end an arch was  erected of evergreens, decorated with  flags'and shields and surmounted bill crown, which had a history of its  own, as it was made to decorate thc  cab of the first locomotive that ever  ran over the C.P.R. sixteen years ago.  The front,of the-!Hotel Revelstoke,  Bonnie Bros.. JO. Si. Hume & Co's.,  A. N. Smith's and the Canada Drug  & Book , Co's stores .iwere. all bright  with flags and ��������� many , colored  streamers. In fact every building," on  which the duke's eye was at' all likely  to rest bore a gay and-festive appearance befiUing the occasion.    ..  -  Thayice-regal train with Lady.Mintb  and suite and Sir Wilfred and Lady.  Laurier pulled in to the depot at 5:20  according to schedule. It was met by  a deputation appointed at the meeting  the previous evening consisting of  Mrs. Cirruthers, president, Mrs. B. A.  Lawson, secretary,,and, Mrs. Wilkes,  vice-president of the Ladies' Hospital  Aid Society and of G. S. MeCarter  and B. R. Atkins representing - the  hospital board and Thos. Taylor, M.P.  P.' The party were introduced to'her  excellency by , Major Maude... She  explained the inability of His Royal  Highness ta lay ' the corner- stone  himself, as they were not aware of the  very perfect arrangements made here  for the performance, of the ceremony  with as little delay as possible and  "they had feared that there would be  time for him to do so. -'  The train moved off, the ladies of the  deputation chatting with her excellency in the vestibule of the vice-regal  car,'while the gentlemen accepted the  -kind-invitation of-SirWilfrid'to'tfavel  down with him'. On arrival at the  platform they alighted and Lady  Minto escorted by Mr. B. Si. Atkins  and followed by Sir" Wilfrid and Lady  Laurier, the rest of the deputation  and Mnjor Maude and her excellency's  suite proceeded between two lines of  the Revelstoke company of the R.M.R.  under Capt. Taylor's command, to the  platform erected at the corner stone,  to the strains of Cod Save the King  by the Revelstoke Independent band.  There was a liirge concourse at the  platform.' On her arrival Lady -Minto  was presented with two beautiful  bouquets of roses by Mi.-s Blanche  McCarty and Mifcs Frances Lawson,  one for herself and onefor tlu* Duchess.  Her excellency graciouslj-acf.epted lhe  gift and gave ench of the d linty little  maidens a hearty kiss in re *irn. The  Kev, C. A. Procunier their came  forward with lhe silver trowel and a  box containing the currenl copies of  the Revelstoke Herald. ICootenay  Mail, Lardeau E.-igle and Tiuut Lake  Topic and specimens of Canadian  coinage. In presenting them to her  excellency the reveieud gentleman  said:  ".Your  Excellency:  On   behalf  of  She Revelsloke Hospital Society, I am  elegated to request your ladyship to  lay the corner stone of Queen Victoria  Cottage Hospital. The aim and object  of this institution is well known, viz..  Ihe^amelioration of thf i-nndilioti of  the sick and s Hireling, f now place in  your hands this box of relic** and  records to he deposited in the receptacle and this trowel with which you  are to perform the ceremony."  In reply L-idy Mitito said that il  gave great pleasure to be present.  She regretted the inability of His  Royal Highness to lay the i*hj  stone himself, but he was in heart  sympathy wilh the work and had  made a handsome donation to the  | Queen Victoria Cottajre Hospital fund  in C.inadn.   Her ladyship gaye a short'  outline nf   the  history   of   the   fund,  hich she inaugurated and which had  a'reacly helped to build four hospitals  in C.tnada. She greatly appreciated  the trouble taken and the careful  arrangements made at such short  notice liy the people of Revelstoke  and sho said she hoped to be present  in Revelsloke upon some future  occasion when the hospital would be  open and doing the good work for  which it was. intended. Herexccllonuy's  charming manner nnd sweet voice  won the hearts of nil present ns she  made her short speech. Then taking  lhu trowel she covered Ihe box with  iiioi'lai*, tapped the stone three times  wilh the mallet, and declared ib "well  and truly laid."  Father Thayer then in n few words  thanked her ladyship for the part she  had played ir, the cet*ciiiony,]itnd Thos.  Taylor, M. P. P., called for three  cheers for her excellency, a signal  which was heartily responded to. The  visitors I lion returned to their cars to  to the strains of the Maple Leaf and  the train lost no time in pulling out  west.  An adjournment was immedhvtcly  made to the C.P.R. station, where the  royal train'was already waiting. The  platform was so densely crowded that  Capt. Taylor aud the guard of honor,  headed by the band, had some difficulty in getting through to their  station at the east end. However,  lhey got there at last, and the crowd  surged " around and behind them,  occupying every coign of vantage  available. The duke could be seen  quite plainly writing at a desk and  smoking a cigar. After a short time  the duchess appeared speaking to him  and just as the train was about to pull  out, the royal pair stepped out on the  rear end of their car and graciously  acknowledged a roar of cheering,  which, led by the city clerk, arose first  for the duke and then for the duchess  of York. The band struck up God  Save the King, the guard presented  arms and the train.carried away the  royal pair into the evening twilight:  It, was a tired crowd which wended its  way home to supper, but a contented  one.    ' '  Prince Mining Co.  XV. H. Wilcox cams . in last night  from the Standard Basin bringing  specimens of the , recent strike of  copper ore. on the Iron Chest, one of  the Prince^" Mining' Co's, properties.;  The new find was described in our last  issue. The lead is three and a half  feet wide on tbe surface. The company consider the Iron Chest one '-of  lhe.'Very best claims on their pro;  perty.  Which Will Help Out Our  Freight Tonnage, as soon as  We get the Navigation of the  Upper River Properly Opened  up.  Messrs. L. 11. lislcll and K Deacon  came in from lhe mica beds oi'the Jiig  Bend, which have been worked all  summer by the locators. Messrs Price  and Evans, who have been assisted by  Messrs Hatch, McDougall, Deacon antl  Walter Dainard. Mr. Deacon came  out about two weeks ago for horses,  and on his return was accompanied by  Mr. Estell. Messrs Deacon and Dainard returned to town on Monday  bringing in one horse loaded with  mica, and they report that the rest of  the men will follow in a few days  bringing with them a pack train of l(j  horses loaded with over it Ion of line  mica, which has been bccm-ed by the  party from one of the claims.  Readers of the Era will remember  that'the location of this inic.-i bed was  described in these columns when the  discovery was made, it-being nhont  three mile from the Columbia river,  and very near the point whore the  river* cms through the Selkirks, making the turn which gives its name to  the Big Bend" dislricl.  Mr. Estell says the claims are very  easy of access and the mica is contained in two series of well defined  quartz ledges, one series lying north  and south and the other cast and west.  The ledges are found in country rock  of the kind known as mica schist.  Quite si mini her of Golden people  have secured locations on these veins  and it is to be hoped that the government-will be able to make an appropriation sufficient to put tho trail in  good condition, as at present nearly  all the bridges require" renewing and  in several places the trail is very bad.  . Messrs -Estell 'and Dea'jon lost' a  horse on the way out.' It had a pack  containing, amongst other things, a  box of dynamite, and in making' a  detour to avoid a fallen tree, the poor  beast fell over backwards, "and went  end over end to the flat below. Everything, in the pack, as .well as lhe  saddle,,.was smashed and. distributed  over the.m'ountain side. Strange to  say, the dynamite- did nob explode,  and was carefully gathered up* after  thesufferings of the horse were ended  by a merciful bullet.  . Mr. Estell has .a: fine, collection of  views taken on the   trip,   which   give  one a good idea of the character ol' the  country near the claims, also of lhe  difficulties of the trail.  Messrs Price and Evans will no  doubt realize enough from this shipment of mica to pay them handsomely  for their season's work and in any  event it will show what could be done  with proper transportation facilities.  Everyone in this district is pleased to  know that .Messrs Price and Evans  have had their faith in that section of  the country justified, as they have, in  the'face of numerous disappointments,  stayed with the district iind are  thoroughly acquainted with il.  In this connection we might quote  the price of mica given in-the Engineering and M in ing Journal of New  York, in ils issue of Sept. 13:  N, Y��������� ground coarse 03 & 01 per lb.  "      ground fine 01 <& 03      "  N.

BY WIRE  The Trip Through the Selkirks.  The duke and duchess of York  greatly enjoyed their trip through thc  Mountain division and told the railway officials in charge of the train  that they considered it tho most*  delightful portion of the whole of  their long railway journey through  the Dominion. The* day was perfect,  and the mountain peaks just tipped  with fresh snow and tho variegated  tints of the woods in all the glory of  their autumnal foliage made a constant succession of ever changing and  entrancing views of the, ' glorious  scenery of the. Selkirks. The train  stopped at Mountain Creek Bridge  and at Albert Canyon to allow the  royal party to descend and view _ the  scenery at these points. Standing in  the'observation vestibule in the rear  of the magnificent boudoir car, which  the C. P. R. had provided for the  special use of the royal couple, during  the daytime, the duke carefully^ returned with raised hat the salutations  of the section men who were lined  along the track iit frequent intervals  and all, of whom made ti pointof  greeting the royal visitors with a bow.  AJ.'ter the chilly weather experienced  .in ciossing the plains and passing the  coiil strata of-aii* '-always-encountered  at the summits of . the Rockies ancl  Selkirks ' the vice-regal' and ; .royal'  parties on Sunday frequently remarked how warm and balmy the air felt  down here in the valley. It was indeed a, beautiful .evening and Revelstoke looked at its very best.  gpss*������e*������xss^^ ������  Our New Store is just about in shape to do  Business  Properly  after  the  hustle _jmd_  ^worr3T-ofLnioving,-of^oiir Fali^and-Winter  Dry-goods.

"The brotherhood includes the following :     Coach   carpenters,   freight car  carpenters, car inspectors, car  repairers, car oilers, car cleaners, and painters, and mill hands,   and   is   reaching  out to include all  or some of the pipe  fitters, locomotive carpenters, and tinsmiths not already organized.     It   is  gratifying to know that the Carmen of  Winnipeg Jubilee Lodge No 0 include  in it* membership over 00 per cent of  tbe   men   employed   in   its branches  and  is   in   a   thoroughly   sound and  satisfactory condition.    But all this is  not the result of a,  sudden   impulse,  but the fruit of a steady   and   persistent  effort   to   complete organization.  and the Winnipeg lodge   was   long in  existence before any tangible   or   substantial benefits were   secured.     The  carmen   have   been   "working   under  many disabilities, and in some departments   at  wages   that precluded the  possibility of a decent living to a family.      Organization   completed,   they  made their collective request  for   recognition and remedy, and  the result  is a  schedule  of  agreement   with   a  wage scale affording a substantial ad-  Tiuice in   wages   and   other  favoring  conditions.   The schedule takes effect  Oct. 1st. We congratulate the carmen  and hope the time   is   at   hand   when  every man in the service will be   protected with a   reasonable   agreement,  Looking   beyond  this   concrete  case,  and   in   connection   with    the    labor  movement in the mass, there is ground  for hope and congratulation.    It   is   a  step up from a  planless  chaotic   individualism, in which the  local  boss ie  empowered to make a personal dicker  with every man .separately:   his   own  reputation and interest  naturally   inclining him to^study  the interests of  the corporation rather   than   the wei  fare of th������ employe.     It is a move   in  the   direction  of   the organization of  ���������industry; may-the good.work-go on.-���������-  Voice.  GROCERIES,  PROVISION'S, Etc.  Liability of Trades Unions.  The following account of an important decision given hy the House  of Lords during July of the present  year appears in the August number of  the English Labour Gazelle, the  journal of the Labour Dept. of the  Board   of  Trade,    England. It is  doubly interesting because the Labour  Gazette of the Ottawa Dept. of Labour  particularly notes that the decisions  of the Lords are binding on the courts  of thc Dominion. Tho following is the  history of tho dccisioi.*:  ���������In connection with a dispute between the Tafl'V.iilo Hail way Company  and its workmen, an action was  brought by the company against the.  Amalgamated Society of Railway  Servants, a trade union registered  under the Trade Union Acts, and  against their secretary and organizing  secretary, the claim being for .an injunction and for other relief, which  would   include   damages. The   in  junction asked for was to restrain the  society, their servants, agents and  others acting by their authority, and  their ollieers named as co-dofendaiits  from watching or besetting, orcausing  to be watched or beset, the Great  Western Kailway station at Cardiff,  or the. works of the Tail Vale"Company or any ot them, or tho approaches  thereto, or the places of residence, or  any place where they might happen to  be, of any workman - employed by or  proposing to work for that company,  for the pnrpose'of persuading or otherwise preventing persons from working  for that company, or for any purpose  except merely to obtain or "communicate information, and from procuring  any person who might have or might  enter into contracts with the company  to commit a breach of such contracts.  The society took out it summons, to  strike out. their names as defendants,  on the ground that they were neither  a corporation nor an individual, and  could not be sued in a quasi-corporate  or tiny other capacity. The judge of  the Vacation Court refused to strike  the society out of the action, and  granted an interim injunction until  the trial of the action, restraining the  society in the manner asked for by  the company, the costs to be costs in  the action.  'The society appealed against this  decision, and the Court of Appeal  allowed the appeal, with costs in that  court and in Uie court below. The  court held that nothing in the Trade  TrffioTfTWifnWleifrti*^^  to he sued in its registered   name,   so  -tjvm?,  Revelstoke  Station.  Hardware, Etc 1  A. N.

But it may be  doubted whether ever in the history  of th������ company have their ollicials put  in a more responsible and anxious time  than right now on this occasion of the  vinit of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall nnd York to Western Canada.  The attention Jwhhh they have been  called upon to give-to the smallest  details has been enormous and there  exists besides a perfectly well founded  understanding that in this matter  excuses won't go. It is admilUid that  they have acquitted themselves admirably. The royal party have been  conveyed from one end of Canada to  the other without a hitch of any kind.  and in the magnificence of the royal  train nnd the very large expense  . which the company voluntarily  assumed for decorations, the compary  have dODe their share in carrying the  visit through in a way to make Canadians feel proud of their great line.

Lead Producers Combine.  The Chicago Record-Herald says:  Lead producers of the country, stirred  by the reported projection of a great  ,$20,000,00(1 lead trust under control  of the Wbitney-Ryiin-O'iggenheim  smelting syndicate, are planning a  close combination of the producing  interests.  Their object, it is staled, is to get  into a position where thoy will not be  ������t the mercy of the smelting combination.  The plan, ns set forth, is to form a  corporation of moderate capital which  shall become the selling agency of the  producer*.  The producers plan nlso to store  their product when the conditions of  the market make such action advisable  or to curtail production.  NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVES lhat we, F.  McCarty and II. J.

Province   for Electoral   Purposes Outlined By the Nelson  Tribune.  For the pin pose of redistribution of  seats in tin* legislative assembly,  the  province  can   he   divided   into  throe  divisions, which have aliout. Lhc same  population, and wliich  have,  respectively, much lht* same interests. Kootenay and Yale districts witli a  population,    aggregating    i"*.">,0..iO.      is    one  division,    'the cities of Vancouver and  New 'Westminster, and the district of  Westminster,  willi a   population    of  50,000 is it second division.    The  third  division would  he Vancouver  Island,  with   a   population     of     15,000.   The  remaining districts (Cassiar,  Cariboo  and  TjillooeL) are of large area    and  sparsely settled, and  they should   be  given   representation   on   a   different  basis lli'in  that llxed   for   the   thiee  divisions which contain populous cities  and  fairly   well-settled   fanning   and  mining districts,    KooU'nny and  Vale  shoul 1 lie  given   12   members;   Vancouver and the Lower I'rnser,   10: and  Victoria   and   tlie   Islands   11.     This  would leave live mouthers for Cnssiar,  (Jarilioo and  Lillooet.   The   divisions  could he divided as folluws for representation:     Vancouver  City 5,   New  Westminster City 1, and Westminster  district*!, with i idings bounded  much .  the same as at present.    Victoria Citv  should  be given  1,   Nanaimo   City   1,  Esqiiinialt 1. Victoria district 1, Nanaimo district 1,  Cmvichnn  1.  Coiuox  J,  and Alberni 1.    .Such a basis of  representation would  certainly  be  fair   to  the  Island.     The  division   taking   in  Kootenay and Y.de  could   he divided  into   twelve  ridings.     Rossland   and  Trail Creek mining division should   be  one; Nelson and Nelson  mining  division another; the third   should   be  the  Slocan, Slocan City and Nakusp  mining divisions; the  fourth, Trout   Lake  and Ainsworth   mining divisions; the  fifth,   Revelatoke,   Lirdcan,   Illecillewaet and Golden mining divisions; the  sixth,   Windermere   mining   division  and all that,   portion   of   Fort   Steele  miningdivision lying east of Kootenay  rivei; the sevenlh, all that portion   of  Fort Steele mining division lying west  of Kuoletiiiy river and the Goat  River  mining division; the  eighth,   all   that  port ion of Yale district lying along the  main line of the C. P. K., witli   Kamloops as a center; Lhe ninth, the farming districts of  which  Vernon   is   the  center;   the  tenth   eleventh   and   the  twelfth to be carved out of thc Boundary and  Similkamecn.     The Tribune  believes that such a division   of  Kootenay and Yale would be not only fair,  but would make ridings  whose   interests would be identical.   Thu interests  of Rossland and  Trail  are   identical,  and the same can  be said of  Nelson  and t he different campsin"N'elson--iiiin-  ing division. Kaslo is a central point for  both Ainsworth and Trout Lake  mining division, and will be all  the more  so on   the completion   of   the   Lardo  Trout Like branch   of  the   C. P. R.  Slocan City and Nakusp mining  divisions.    That  part   of  East  and   Wesc  Kootenay lying along the main line of  the C.P.R. is not entitled to more than  one member either from population or  variety of interests.'   Southeast Kootenay, with Fott, Steele as the  center,  would be a riding in which there could  be no conflicting  interests;   and   that  portion of-Snutheast Kootenay lying  west of Kootenay river combined with  Goat liiver mining division  would  be  a riding having Cranbrook as a chief  town.   The population of these seven'  ridings would vary, it is  true; but Lhe  district would have fair representation  and there would be   community of interests in each tiding, which is an important consideration. The population  of the several riding would be approximately: Rossland   7500,   Nelson   7000,  Kaslo 4500.   Slocan   4500.   Revelstoke-  Golden   4000.   Fort  Steele  4000,   and  Cranhiook-Moyie-Creston    4003.��������� Nelson Tribune.   "  Certificate  of Imp rovements  i<fc  ID  ZLTOTIOE..

It is held such a national  hotly could he more economically man-  tiyed, wield a larger influence aiid give  hotter''insurance than the present  class of international organizations.  The men it is proposed to unite are  liie locomotive engineers and firemen,  conductors, hrakenien and telegraphers.  The organization would he broader  in its scope than the existing unions  since one of its objects would be "to  promote by.every legitimate means  favorable Provincial and Dominion  legislation for railway employes and  to oppose and resist unjust* 'anti-railway legislation tending to cripple- the  transportation system served by its  membership, recognizing in such  legislation au ndvei-se movement  which might retaliate injuriously to  railway employes." It is thought  that, with proper and effective legislation representatives who could deal  thoroughly with the problem of advancing favorable or retarding unfavorable legislation to railway men  and by showing a thorough organization throughout Canada. Parliament  would grant to the order everything  that was reasonable.  The possibilities of obtaining an improved system of insurance and increased facilities for settling lalxir disputes are emphasized. It is also suggested the supply of skilled railwav  nien might be regulated. The Executive would be composed of the  heads of the five branches of tlie order,  would lie paid and would not be in the  employ of the railways. For the inauguration of the new order it is  proposed to call a convention in  Ottawa during the latter part of  November.���������Toronto Globe,  aa !SCHOOL  1      BOOKS  <t ALL THE NEW  ?
