A Chat With Mr. A.  McLeod,  M. P., a Progressive  Ontario  Conservative, Who Has Lum- j.ind  bering Interests in Kootenay.  In an interview with A, McLeod, M.  P. for North Ontario, who wns in town  011 Saturday, the Unit A Ml ascertained  that very link' linn so far lieen decided  hy the Ontario luiuliermi.'u who have  bought the old DeCmv mill at Arrn.v-  heiid, heyond moving the plant to this  side of the Ann. Active operations  will he postponed until the season is  fairly opuued. Mr. McLeod is very  enthusiastic over the prospects of this  section of-, Kootenay, width he considers has a bright, future before it.  lie. does not think the immense  resources of Western Cinada from  Rat Portage to the Const have their  equal on the continent of America  and expects in another ten or fifteen  years to see a wonderful progress  made in the west. Mr. McLeod is a  Conservative of the progressive, kind  and his visits to the west have  convinced him of the astonishing  foresight of Sir John Macdonald, who  in spite of the sneers of I he opposition  and tho half hearted support of most  of his own followers, could anticipate  thc immense value of the opening up  of tlie west to Canada and carry his  project through. Mr. McLeod said  that he could not help regretting that  the master mind had not survived lo  witness the great impetus given to the  fulfillment of his anticipations by the  development of Kootenay within thc  last few years. In reply to a. suggestion of the Herald. Mr. McLeod s.iid  ho thought it would be an excellent  idea to pass an appropriation to  provide a special excursion and take  every member in the house on a tour  through westeili Canada. The average  member of parliament knows nothing  at all about it and the . western  members are too few to make their  influence felt. In consequence the.  needs and lequireiiients of the west  and particularly British Columbia are  neglected in favor of better known  and more numerously represented  provinces. One thing is certain,  however, the_ proyiii_ie_liiis_(j_tiiigdvii  friend in Mr. McLeod, as it does with  every member of progressive idea;*,  who takes tho trouble to pay it a visit.  poultry, sausages und every thing  going. He knows, that the Ruvelsloke  people want the best of eva>-ything  and ia ready to supply it.

IMth, and the election 011 the following  Thursday, .Tan." 10th.  Although nothing" definite on the  point is laid down in thc amendment  to the school act passed at the last  session, it appears to be the intention  that tlie elections for school trustees  in cities of the third olass, like Revelstoke, shall be held at the same time  and place and under the same returning o'licer as the municipal elections,  as the school act provided should be  done, in "the' pact in Victoria and  Vancouver.

FRUIT,""        PEEL,  GROCERIES  For people who like  lo make their own  Cakes.  DISPATCHER  One Railroad Official Who Has  all Work and No Play.  The chief train dispatcher "handle**;  the power," distributes the cars' to the  various stations, decides what freight  trains shall be run and is in immediate  charge of thc countless details that  arise in tho operation of trains. The  duties of the superintendent and the  trainmaster keep them away from the  ollice about half the time, traveling up  and down the line, stopping overnight  at important stations and terminals.  The chief dispatcher is ahvayi at  headquarters and is thc man of details.  Uo is assisted by a "trick dispatcher"  for each dispatching district, Lik������  the sentinels at Gibraltar, the three  trick dispatchers never leave their  post unguarded. Tt may happen for a  few minutes some Sunday night that  there is not a train running, "not *  wheel .'i-turnin on the division," as the  men say, but there sits the dispatcher,  the ever ready representative of the  oliicial stair, the incarnation of alert  administration. AV'here business is  heavy and the management is progressive, there is a night chief also,  who thus renders the position of ehicf  dispatcher uninterrupted.  These chiefs work 12 hours each, as  nervous tension is less than that of a  trick d'spatcher, who is "glued to the  train wire" his entire tour. In the  absence of a night chief the details are  looked after liy the trick dispatcher,  whose work becomes much mora  responsible, The chief in such a. case  usually comes down after supper and  maps out the "night work and some  times breaks in Inter with instructions  on the Imi 11 wire, which is "cut in" at  his room.  The railroad man is seldoii entirely  out of touch with his work. The  telegraph sounder lulls the tired chief  to rest and wakes him in the morning.  So trained is his ear that if wanted at  night the dispatcher has.to sound the  private call on the wire only'a few  times to elicit >i response from the  sleeping chief On Sundays the chief  is on hand most of the day in obedience  to the' unwritten railroad 'commandment "Six days shalt thou labor, and  the seventh come down to. tbe office  and "catch up." -In most occupations  "all work and no play, makes Jack a  dull boy," but in railroading it makes  him a bright boy. so stimulating and  fascinating is the excitement of the  work.���������Ainslie's Magazine.  At the Ticket Window.  V When does the next tiain that  stops at'McAllisterville leave here?"  " You'll have to wait four hours V  " I think not.,'  "Well, maybe, you know better than  I do, ma'am."  "Yes, sir, and maybe you know  bettor than I do whether I am expecting to travel 011 that train myself, or  whether I am enquiring for a relative  that's visiting at my house and wanted  me to call here and ask about it aod  save her lbs trouble because she is  packing up her things and* expects to  take that train  herself, and not   me,  an"d"sheWill'liave to-do the waiting,  and not me, and maybe you think it's  your business to stand behind there  and try to instruct people about  things lhey know as well.as you do, if  not better, but my idea is that you're  put there because they could not use  j-ou in the switching department, andr  perhaps you'll learn some day to give  people civil answers when they ask  civil questions, voting man, my opinion i.s you won't!"  (With a gasp)���������"Yes ma'am."  MITH  Redistribution.  Thos. Taylor, M.P.P., speaking to  the 11ehai.ii, expressed an opinion  that the total votes cast ;in each  constituency at the Inst provincial  general election vhould bu taken into  account in framing a redUlribution  measure quite as much as the census  flguies. He is strongly in fovor of  leaving the (letnils of redistribution to  an impattial commission composed of  the judges ofthe B. C. Supreme Court.  Mr. Taylor does not credit that John  Ley nf Victoria, whose ' extraordinary  election poster, has reached town, is  the recognized government candidate  although he calls himself so. Ley is a  man without weight, of strong socialistic principles.  ���������Call at A. X. Smith's and pick out  your wedding and Xmas cakes, 500 lbs  ready made on hand, all sizes and  shapes.
