HUME  &C0  OF QUEEN VICTORIA HOSPITAL  During: the Wait oi the Royal Truin Here  Tomorrow, at the Request of Lady  Minto. Time Card and Consist of the  Royal Train in the Shuswap and Mountain Division. Members of the Royal  Entourage.  About 8 o'clock on Thursday evening Secretary Atkins of the Hospital  Board was agreably surprised by the  receipt of the following telegram,  "The royal train will pass Kevelstoke  about 5 p. in. on Sunday, 2I)th inst.,  und"Her Excellency i s anxious that if  possible His Royal Highness the Duke  of Cornwall may lay the foundation  stone of the cottage hospital there.  Please send telegram by noon tomorrow at Regina to say whether  this can be arranged. The whole  ceremony should .not take more than  a quarter of an hour. Major Maude."  It is needless to say that this welcome suggestion of Her Excellency  was promptly actedjupon. Before he  went to bed Supt. Kilpatrick, who is  president of the hospital board, with  characteristic energy had made  arrangements for supplying a suitable  ���������tone and for procuring a silver trowel  for use"7 in the ceremony. Mr.  Atkins promptly called an emergency  meeting of the hospital^ board, wliich  assembled at the Hotel Kevelstoke at  10 a. m. yestei'day and at which Supt.  Kilpatrick, G. S. MeCarter, Aid. J.  McLeod, J.* T. Brewster and B. How-  son were present of the. board; Drs  Cross and Carruthers represented the  medical fraternity. Rev. .C. A.' Procunier and H. A. Brown the general  public and E. A. Hiiggen and G. E.  Grogan the press." Supt.' Kilpatrick'  undertook all, the "arrangements with  regard .to. the '"-"pro'pev placing of the  corner stone in the.N.

It was resolved to hold a joint meeting of tbe hospital board and Ladies  Aid in No 2 fire hall at S p. in. this,  Saturday, evening to make arrangements for the reception of the royal  party.  ��������� The secretary was also instructed to  wire Thos. Taylor, M. P. P., and  Mayor Brown1, who ware both in Van  couver, notifying them of the unexpected visit and also to make the city  council officially acquainted with the  same at their meeting on Friday  evening. The board theii adjourned  until this evening. . .  The arrangements made so ��������� far are  that the viceregal train will be run up  Vp'pbsite^th^lfospital^ite^'wh'ere-a"  temporary platform 100x8, has been  constructed. The royal party will  alight there and proceed along a four  foot sidewalk built to the site of the  hospital. There a 30x10 platform has  been raised and the corner stone will  be all ready suspended over its resting  place in the N. E. corner by a crime.  Beneath will be a bed of mortal' and  at the given signal the stone will he  lowered into position, and squared.  The Duke will tap it with his trowel  and declare the stone'"well and truly  laid" and the ceremony will be over.  In the meanwhile the train will have  changed engines in the yard ai.d will  come up again to take up the royal  travellers for the west. On leaving  the platform they will puss under nu  arch, which will be decorated with  evergreens and the word welcome i i  electric lights. Three arc light.*,, on *  at the platform, o no halfway on th*������  footwalk and one at the corner stoi:*.*  will illuminate the scene of tl.i*  ceremony.  Revelstoke owes the gracious compliment of this visit next to. the kind  complaisance of Their Royal Highnesses to. the great interest, which  Lady Minto takes in our new hospital.  Following up a suggestion first made,  bythe Heraxd several months ago  that it might not be altogether impossible te get the royal party to stop  off at this point, Mr. Atkins conceived  the very happy idea of giving an object to the request that they should do  so and at the same time of gaining  Lady Minto's influence in its favor.  He wrote direct to her Excellency on  the subject and received a roply  couched in very guarded language but  at the same time leaving no doubt  that Lady Minto's support had been  won to the project. Since then no  more has lieen heard about the matter  until the arrival of Major Maude's  telegram.  Of course it is needless for the  Hekalu to enlarge upon the great  compliment which Their Royal Highnesses are paying Revelstoke and the  inhabitants of this loyal town. So far  only cities of the first rank in the  Dominion have been or as far as the  official programme outlines, are going  to lie thus honored. Wehave but-  short notice to prepare for the visit  and the time during which we shall be  able to extend a welcome to our royal  visitors will be brief. But whatever  can be done Revelstoke intends to do.  We cannot receive Their Royal  Highnesses with salvos of artillery  and a big spectacular display. But  we can and will give them a hearty  western welcome from a community  as loyal to the Crown and Empire as  is to be found within the vast dominions of tlie King.  Besides the Duke and Duchess of  Cornwall & York the following distinguished persons are of their party  and cons-tit uie their entourage :  Lady .Mary Lyon, lady-in-waiting.

"  OF COPPER OKE  Made Recently on the Iron Chest  in the Prince Mining Co.'s  . Property in Standard Basin.  . John Nelson brought down from  the Standard Basin yesterday some  news of great importance to this town.  Another big strike of rich copper ore  has boen made on the property of the  Prince Mining & Development Co.  This time it is on the claim known as  the Iron Chest. This find is the result  of a systematic plan of prospecting  which the company is pursuing over  the whole property. Mr. Nelson  brought some of the ore to town, and  very promising looking stuff it is.  Now that the development on the  Standard has conclusively proved the  permanency of the leads in the Standard Basin camp, the fresh strikes of  rich outcroppings such as were made  recently on the Commander and now  on the Iron Chest, acquire great  interest and importance as indicating  the most favorable lines along which  future development should be undertaken, as well as the great value of the  whole property of the company.  The work on the Standard claini,  which is being vigorously prosecuted,  continues to prove highly satisfactory.  The recent lead of high grade copper  sulphides and carbonates encountered  in the No. 2 tunnel is widening out  and increasing in values. Two hundred poun.ls of this ore were fetched  in by Mr. Nelson's puck train and  shipped last night to the-Mayor in  Viincouverl.o be placed on the Revelstoke arch, where it will no doubt  attract great attention from mining  men-visiting the city to take-Pin the  ���������royal reception.  ��������� Nelson's pack train left .today with  about two tons moie of powder and  supplies for. the. Prince Mining. SZ  Development Co.'s camp aud work will  be pushed on with vigor during the  winter.  All this is very ��������� cheering- ne ws.  Copper is king just now and the'  continued run'-of' favorable reports  fiotii ���������- the..Sta,ndai'.d;-*Bftsini_.is..of._im-_  men'se importance to Revelstoke. The  HEBA.L.D believes that there, exists  every prospect of a copper camp second  to none ou-the continent. It lias been  visited by all classes of mining then,  scientific experts and old time miners,  and not a single oue that has been  oyer the ground bnt has brought back  the highest possible opinion (if the  possibilities of the camp. The surface  prospects indicate an extraordinary  high grade of ore and development has  proved that the ore not merely maintains but increases its values with  depth and at the same time has gene  far enough now to satisfy the most  critical of the permanent nature of the  leads antl the great extent of the ore  hodies. The Hjjrald believes that  there are mineral resourcesjwithin lhe  Standard Basin alone sufficient to  build up Revelstoke into a sevond  Denver.  BY WIRE  B. L.  E.   Meeting in Spokane.  One of the most distinguished  gatherings assembled in Spokane this  year was that of the 150 or more delegates to the union meeting of the  Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers  of the Pacific Northwest, whose three  days session last week was presided  over by the grand chief of the Order,  P. M. Arthur. Many ofthe engineeis  were accompanied by their wives, who  took advantage of the occasion to  organize a ladies' auxilliary, which  started oif with a membership of 55.  Mrs. F. S." Bowley, grand chaplain,  came up from California as the representative of the grand president to  institute the auxiliary lodge. Gov.  Rogers was to have been present to  make the opening speech of the session  but he was unavoidably detained on  the West side. Among the speakers  who addressed the engineers were  Senator George Turner, Congressman  W. L. Jones, Mayor P. S. Burne and  Grand Chief Arthur.  .  The latter devoted nimself to giving  a history of the Order since its organization 3S years ago, and, referring to  the present strife between capital and  labor, he said the Brotherhood of  Locomotive Engineers is unalterably  opposed to sympathetic strikes. Two  days'of the session were mainly devoted to pleasure and social intei-  course, the chief event being a great  ball given in the Elks' new temple, the  Hrst to be held there. The last day  wa.s given over to a secret business  session.. Grand Chief Arthur left for  the .Coast Thursday, whero he will  address union meetings at Portland,  Seattle   and Tacoma.

The provincial press with one accord  if. coining round to thc view that the  only way of onr political difficulties is  tlie adoption of Dominion parly lines  In the next election. Tbe old blatherskite foolishness, "We don't want no  partizan politics. We want the best  men" hns been retired into temporary  oblivion. It took a long time for the  fact that it is a good deal easier to  talk about getting "lhe best men"  than to get them to become impressed  on the intellect of the province but it  has apparently got to the spot at last.  All this province or any other province can expect to corral for its  legislators is a very average crowd,  not a bit better, or worse for thai  matter, than the ordinary run of  people. The men, who were elected  on this "best men" plan, finding themselves at Victoria with no very definite  obligations as a rule except a .well  defined expectation among their constituents that they were to do their  hest for the constituency have very  naturally.,held their allegiance to the  leaders, Who from time to time arose  in the house, very loosely. More often  than not the actual premier has not  heen carried into power hy any expression of popular opinion. A member, who gets to Victoria and finds at  th������ head of affairs some gentleman,  whose name cut no figure in the  election at all and who represents nobody particular except himself, may  decide to stand in with the government for the benefit of his riding.  But the stability of any government,  depending on such vague support as  that, rests entirely on the personal  strength or weakness of the premier  himself. It is open at any time to  collapse through the revolt of some  insurgent in ils own ranks, who feels  liketrying conclusions for the prize of  power  himself. The   will _ of   the  ���������electors having been only very indefinitely, if at all, expressed on the  matter, thero is no constraining force  felt by the individual members to prevent this element of personal self  ���������seeking���������intruding���������itself���������and��������� even-  eliminating every other consideration.  In abstract theory the introduction  of party lines into provincial politics  is a demonstrable absurdity. Even  when these divisions nieantsomething  in Dominion politics, it was something which had nothing on earth to  do with the field of provincial affairs.  Now that all meaning has practically  Sunt out of them even in Federal  politics, anybody would have an easy  ta>k to prove the folly of ranging the  electorate of Britihh Columbia on one  side or the other for the purpose of  facilitating the conduct of the business  of the province. But a great many  abuurditie.s in theory work out all  right in practice in the department of  politics. The HKitAr.ri ha.s pointed  out liefore and lias in fact stood almost  alone among the newspapers of the  province in doing so, that these two  great Canadian parties are sei 11 potent  factcrs in the national existence, even  If the vitality supplied by great issues  has largely gone out of them. They  exercise a sobering and controlling  influence on the personal and self  seeking element in politics and furnish a safeguard to the province of  stability in the conduct of its affairs.  A member elected to supportn definite  party with a definite leader cannot  abandon it at his own sweet will. He  lias the party in his constituency to  reckon with and keep him straight.  Tlie present era of confusion has  become wearisome to the electoi-s and  is making the province a byword in  tire  Dominion.       If   any   political  thinker has any plan except that of  the introduction of party lines,' hy  which we can put an end to this state  of affairs! it is open to him to advance  it. But as a matter of fact there is  no third course possible. And the  best method to pursue to get out of  our present troubles is to divide into  Conservatives. Liberals and Labor  supporters and work along those lines  to obtain a stable government. We  shall get quite as good and business  like a conduct of our ail'airs in tliis  way as we have ever enjoyed under  the old "happy family" plan. And by  and by the Labor party will give our  politics a definite aim and object, besides adding very considerably to  their interest.  THE ROYAL VISIT.i  To-morrow morning'the special I ruin  convoying the royal party will enter  British Columbia. Tbe visit of their  royal higlmessc.i, recalling us it docs  the previous visit of His Majesty,  when Prince, or Wales, in I St Jl > n.-itui-  ally Liirii*- one's mind to a retrospect of  the immense progress made in lhe  North American possessions of (lie  Empire since that dale. In ISliO  Ottawa, whose population of (10,000  gave their royal highnesses such a  magnificent tcception last week, had  only been for five years an incoipori.-  ted city and had just two years before  been selected by Queen Victoiia as the  capital of thu province of Canada, as  the united provinces of upper and  lower Canada were then called. The  coi ner stone of the splendid parliament  buildings was in fact laid by the Prince  on Sept. 1st, 1SG0.  In those days Canada praclically  ended at the great lakes. Manitoba,  the great North-West, and British  Columbia were only known as the  territories of thc Hudson Bay Co.  Gold had been discoveced in Brilish  Columbiaonlj* two years before and  Col. Moody, representing the Imperial  government had founded New Westminster in the previous year as the  seal of government for the crown  colony. The duke and duchess will be  conveyed across the continent in a  magnificent special train over thu  greatest transcontinental system in  America. But when the piince.paid  us a visit the first railway in Canada  had only been opened for seven years.  It was another world which he saw in  Cauada to what our present royal  visitors behold. A world in wliich the  lirst beginning of great things were  struggling into shape. The' forty  years which have elapsed since then  h-tve been a period of coiistiucl ion, of  lofty aims and great activity. It  seems as if the forces, which during  that Lime have been at woik are now  spent and exhausted. The aims of the  Canadian statesmen of thut day have  been accomplished. .Anotherera is al  hand, dominated by other ideas, in  which the changes made will bu social  rather than political and material in  their nature. The problems of the  new time are more complicated. Lhe  dangers far more serious, the end  nnuh less easy to forsee.  CANADIAN  S 'VITZERLA ND.  In another paragraph will be found  an account of tbe profits which  annually accrue to Switzerland  throueh the touri.������t trade.    Of course  the little European republic, (its area  is about the .������an:e as that of Kooienay)  has iuimen.se advantages from its  position in the centre of the wealthy,  leisure classes of Europe. It i.s lull,  too, of cities and town*, some nf considerable size and many of them of  great beauty. Thc whole country, too,  possesses Lhe peculirir charm which a  long and storied p.*ist alone can confer.  It will he long before British Columbia  with nil her wealth of magnificent  mountain scenery will be .ible Lo rniu-  p?te with the many .ttf.raction.s of "lhc  playground of Europe,'' as a rival for  the tourist business. At lhe same  time it. may hu doubted whether w<>  n British Cn'ii-uhia fully ro.*ili.������  what a. resource iti thy way of  aelual dollars ,md fonts we posses-i in  our splendid mountain ranges. The  Alps arc bettor known anrl moi-'*  celebrated in song and story kill it is  the unanimous verdict of those travellers, wlni ha vcovisited both countries  that tbis wonderful province of oiii'.s  quite holds il own for .sheer magnificence of scenery with .Switzerland.  And there i.s this further attraction  out here to the lover of mountain  scenery, that while a very foot of  Switzerland has been traversed over  and over again, in British Columbia  all the delights of exploration and  discovery are still to be obtninnd and  tbat without a journey from the main  highway of the C. P. IJ. so extended  as lo become toilsome. We wbo live  in the midst of tbis wonderful mountain land scarcely give its a thought.  It is a common expression lhat we  cannot live on the scenery. Hut Switzerland is a standing example of a  nation that practically docs live on its  scenery. And there i.s very little  doubt thai wc do here possess a resource in this respect which might be  turned to - much greater advantage  than it i.s.  ^^^i^^^i^k^^^im^^^^^t^s^^^^i^ii^c^^^^ai^i  l\a 11 ���������   ^31  BAKER, COXFECTIOXER,  and caterer Etc.

Life of Locomotives.  We alluded   tlie   other   day  to the  record made liy  a  British-locomotive  on the Grunt Northern fiailway, wliich  had just completed  its font- millionth"  mile, having heen: running since��������� 1S70,  and being still.regularly employed  in  the express passenger work.    It is now  announced that  this   is   nut   hy   any  means the   oldest   British   locomotive  still   at   work.   In   the   southeast   of  Ireland, on the Waterford & Trnmore  Railway, an engine is now in use  that  was   built   in   1S15.    This   railway   in  itself is rather a curiosity.     Ic is nnly  seven and one-quarter miles long,  and  is entirely isolated rrom all other linns.  There are no immediate stations on its  route, nud  no.sidings.    The platforms  of thu two terminal stations  are  built  on the samo side of the track,  so that  the cars are provided with  doors on  hut one side.     Another English  locomotive, built in LSI."), is still  in use on  the Cliemin tie Fer du Nord of France.  The   Locomotive  Magazine,    in   commenting on   the   long   life   of   Biitish  engines,     says:     " Tlie   British  built  engine is designed to stay.     There are  plenty  of engines running   today 011  British   railways���������aye, and  on  continental ones, too���������that were constructed  twenty, thirty,  forty and  even  more  yeais-ago.   whicli   are   still perfectly  reliable    iu     eveiy   way.     American  builders can  show   nothing.even   remotely akin   to  this.    Tlie   life   of a  Yankee'loco'may be as short as  ten  years,    it would  certainly   be considered  aged  at   fifteen.   And   I  should  imagine there aie not above a score of  twenty year-old   locomotives   iu    the  whole  of  the  United  Slates that nre  regularly  engaged   in   the   passenger  service of any first class lines."'  We should like to know on this  point if there is any economy in  running engines for so many years.  In that time thoy must certainly get  very much out of dale, for improveinenls are constantly made in engine  construction. It is hot easily possible  that some British roads run a locomotive when it would be economy to  send her lo lhe scrap heap and replace  her with a modern machine.���������Boston  Herald.  -#  Certificate of Improvements  3STOTIOE.

Although s-harks are esteemed the  greatest terror of the ocean, they are  in reality the gieatest cowards of the  (inny tribe;1. Many tales have been'  told of how human beings have been  devoured liy the fish that is known as  the man eater. Although many of  them have been greatly exaggerated,  they are to 11 certain extent true. It  is als-o true that sharks, have been  known to follow a ship for days, picking up and eating that which had been  thrown overboard as waste. Notwithstanding all of this, the cowardice  af sharks is well known among men  who have been much in southern  waters. -The fiercest, shark- will get *  out of the way of .a swimmer if the  latter sets tip a noisy splashing.  A shark fears anything that splashes  in the water. Among the Sonth Sea '���������  Islands the natives never go bathing  alone, but always in parties of half a,  dozen or so, in order that they make a  great hubbub in the water and thus  frighten away the sharks. Once iu ;i  while a too venturesome swimmer  among these natives foolishly detaches himself from his party and  forgets to keep np his splashing. ;Then  there'is'a swish and the man eater  come up from under him like a flash ���������  and he is gone.  Switzerland's Asset.  The travelling Briton is ever  ready  to believe that  the .Alps are the best  commercial asset of Switzerland.    But  it is not often he gets   so   satisfactory  a demonstration of the   fact  as   that  furnished   by-   the recently published  statistics of the Societe des Hoteliers  Suisscs.       These tables show that in  "ISOlt^wlioiTVtlle-total revenue oFthe  Swiss Confederation fell short of 3 1-5  millions sterling, the net  receipts   of  the   hotel     keepers   of   the   country  amounted   to  nearly  115 francs, 4 3-5  millions sterling.    Since then the holiday industry has   steadily   increased.  The number of hotels then   1G03.   had  now risen to 1,800.     Nearly one-sixth,  of   these���������292���������are    situated    in   tlie  canton'of Berne, the very heart of the  country.

Jim   Hill,  o  the   Great Northern,   was   very   emphatic that .xomething should be done,  ami done immediately, to restiict  undesirable   foreign   emigration.   Theie  are but few people who  do  not agree  with him.    But Hill   should   be  more  consistent and preach as he  practices.  In the accident a few weeks ago on his  railroad, where neatly  30   men  were  killed, a large number of whom  were  employes     of   his   road,    there   were  hatdly half a dozen names among  the  list of the dead   tbat   could   be  pronounced  by  an   English  tongue.   In  other   words,   they   were   nearly all  Italians, Ilnnganans or Poles.     However, Hill's favorite employes are the  coolies   from  Japan.    According to a  recent statement, the  Great Northern  company will net over  $0,000,000 on  this year's  business*.    Certainly such  earnings would permit of the employment of white men in the work being  done by the company.���������Western Mining World, 4������l*4"M"I"l*'l*i>'l*'l"l"l-4"l"l"l"l"i"i"l"i"l'i.4<i.
