D. 1902 Comes to Revelstoke  Laden With Opportunities of  Growth and Progress���������It Will  Prove an Epoch Making Yea  EFORE THE NEXT ISSUE  of the TlKit.vi.i) is published  tlie year of'-Our Lord, 11)01,  will be numbered among the days 01  the past. The HEit.M.u, therefore,  lakes the opportunity of to-day's issue  to extend lo its numerous readers its  best wishes for the coming year.  Unless all signs fail, it will mark the  commencement of a fresh era of pro  Kress in Revelsloke. For the first  time on record this town will he. as  soon as spring opens, placed in regular and easy communication with the  mining districts hitherto prospected in  the Rig Bend. Thi-i alone will mark  11)02 as a noticeable year in the history  of North ICootenay. -Not only will thu  operations which have I'or lhe past  yours been conducted in that district  receive an immense stimulus from the  facilities afforded to lhe mine owner  and investor in llio way of quicker  communication and .lower freight  rates, but there is _very little doubt  that fresh discovcr'es will follow with  great rapidity upon the regular  navigation of the Columbia. Tliere is_  an immense extent of country practically untouched on both sides of the  river, which will now be brought  within easy reach of the prospector,  who will be able to'calculate on a fresh  'basis of supplies' at Laporte. Even if  no more is done towards opening up  the navigation of the. tipper river than  the placing of the ss.- Revelstoke on  tlie.run from hare to Laporte, still the  whole ... known ,- quart'/. ���������_ and placer  milling district of tlie. Big Bend will  be'brought",within.'from live to 20,  miles* of steamboat, communication,  with the'town, a limit, which will"  include the southern boundaries oi_ the  large tract's "o������ valuable" timber lands  bordei irig .-the .Columbia-'irom >- jGold -���������  Stream'.up ' to" Kinbasket Iiike.;*',The  -jjiip_etus vf^i^^  itabiy'uieai. to' the business activity of  Revelstoke can hardly be overestimated.    _  But this is not all. There is eyciy  hope that before 1902 joins its predecessors in the silent past, navigat on  will be extended on the upper river .1=**  far, at all events, as-the month of  Canoe river and perhaps for a long  distance uo the Canoe. Capital is  very Imgelv in'er'Sled in the. placer  fields UIUI lliiiliei'  U.ipids already,  development, w  tained by Llu- wealthy and progressive  America investors, who are uiuUr-  taking di-velopmiiit epuiulions in  these directions,, the cost nl a steamer  to ply above the r.ipiii.-, lo tiuinsii  transpoit to lheir mining and logging  camps  would be a mere bagatelle.  Oncti the s. s. Revelsloke is making  her regular lrips,and_we are abb* lo  convey investors 'into the Dig- Rend  coimliy ' without any unreasonable  diseomfin t and li.s? of time, it will not  he very long hefoie the obstacles  presented by the chain of rapids and  canyons known as the -Death Rapids  will be surmounted and lhe whole  noith country horn tbe Yellowhen.l  Pass down will be placed within easy  and rapid communication with its  disti-ibui.ing point at Revelsloke.  -There-is���������not-^a���������-town���������in ���������Brilish-  .(.'oliiiiilua wliich will receive such a  New Year's gift as tlie vast trade  teiriloiy and unlimited business  opportunities which 1002 will pour into  ihe lap of our own fair cily.  There are other changes to   Revelstoke  which 1902  will   bring  of  less  importance    perhaps,     but    still    of  considerable  interest  and advantage.  There is a prospect of a reconstruction  of the railway yard which will include  a new station  iind liolel close to  the  business part of the east end, a, change  which would be of immense advantage  to the town.   The year will also see the  city assume control of ils own school  system, a position  with much responsibility attached to it. set off'  by  even  greater advantages.     "Wo shall have a  hospital in operation early in the year,  an institution gieatly  needed for the  well lieing of the town   and   di-trict.  These changes will all  make  for  progress  and   growth.     The    people   of  Kevelstoke   have   only   to    inline  up  their minds to make thc fullest possible use of the good things with -a hich  1002 comes  lo   us   laden,   by  sinking  petty diffetenccs and contention.* and  working shoulder  to  shoulder  to  the  good of one and all. to mark  t! e  year  as an leal epoch maker in the history  of the town.    There must be a certain  amount of   give   and   take   in   every  community.     There   must     be   compromises and concessions.   "Wc cannot  all have every   little   detail   of   civic  administration   arranged   exactly   to  suit  us.     But   we all    here   now in  Revelstoke can have a good  town   to  live in and do business in and earn a  decent living in, if wc will  only  pull  together to that end.    "With a little  common sense and mutual forbearance  brought to bear in these lesser points   g  and a spirit of united   and   persistent' ������  determination and  enterprise  on  the j  one great object,   the  development of]  this place will soon lay all these minor  questions to rest and we shall  wonder  what tho  trouble  was all   about.    If  the people of Revelstoke would only j  realize the future  before   their   city. |  they would   be   able   to  find  neither  time    nor   inclination   to   w;u,te    in  squabbling over little  details,   which  might so easily be settled without any  trouble at all. !  A. D. 100*2 is bringing us great  opportunities. It is for us either to  fritter them away or make tlie most  ofthe tn. I  Around the Railway Yard.  E, A.

Thn HiciiAi.u has received an  advance, copy, of a bulletin on the  recent gold discoveries on Horsefly  river published by the B. O. Department. It contains a digest of thc  reliable information up to date on ths  subject and is a useful and timely  publication. The IIeiiai.ii congratulates tlm department on the adoption  of the policy, so often urged by this  paper, of issuing such bulletins and  hopes tliis present issue on lhe Horsefly gold fields is only the. No. 1 of a  long and useful series. The acting  minister of mines, i\Ii*. Eberts, has no  doubt a good deal to look after in bis  double capacity and the inauguration  of a new policy of energy in .the.  department was therefore the less  -expected just at present mid is all the  more welcome. The report contains  some notes of a general character on  pur placer deposits from the pen of the  * provincial mineralogist, which are of  great interest and which ' will be reproduced in another issue of the  Herald. A map of the Horsefly  district is being prepared by tbe  department and will follow.  The Herald begs also to acknowledge with thanks the receipt of copies  of the mining reports of Ontario for  .1899,1900 and 1901. We must say that  these reports are a vast improvement  on our own and would, furnish a  pattern on which the' B. C. mining  reports mighL well be remodelled. The  Ontario reports form reviews of the  whole business of mining in the  piovince, ours are for the most part  merely chronicles of mining operations.  There is too much of unimportant  detail in ours and nothing at all in the  way of general information or direct J  ion* The fact that John Thompson  and Henry Walker have made an  open cut of 10 feet on the Silly Billy  claim is no doubt of considerable  interest to the parlies in question but  ���������hai dly to-anybody-else.���������There-is^two  much nf this kind of petty detail in  the B. C. reports and too little matter  of a broad and general scope, such as  is to be found in the Ontario reports.  Take their report of l'JOO. Fifty pages  of it are devoted to a comprehensive  paper on the copper and iron regions  of the province, the next twenty  contains notes on tin* minerals ot  Ontario and ten more are devoted lo  uu interesting sketch of the nickel  industry. There nre -cores of pros*  pectors and miners in this province by  whom articles of this nature, would be  read wilh the gieatest interest and  appirelation if iti'.orpn.'.iteil inlo our  own mining ieport.������.  Xulson, B. ('!.. Dec. 20.��������� Last evening   one   of   the   most    peculiar and  destructive   train   wrecks    that     has  probably   occurred   in   tho   province,  look   place   at    l-'ive.   Mile.    I'oint,   in  which, although   ihere   was  considerable   damage   diuu*.   no    loss   of   life  occiirrid.        As   freight.   Xo.   0     was  coming in   froni   Spokane,  about* two  miles     frum     Nelson,     the   engineer  slarleil lo put   mi   the  air  brakes,    a.s  there   were   II!   heavily    loaded   cars  behind and   a   grade   of   two   and   niu  hull'per cool, fur 1 In* next eight miles.  He found that the air would not work.  In an incredibly short   time,  lhe  train  neai-eil llu-I'niil. of  the  grade  at   l-'ive  .Mile I'oint where   tlie   men   knew   lhe  switches would be cloned and the train  must ii.evitably leave the track.      The  engineer ordered Ihe fireman to  jump  and soon after fell oil' hinisell'.    11 i.s a  miracle that,   the  men  did   not strike  the   rocks.     Brakesman   OritTin.   who  wa.s next to the engine, said he started  In pray, but did not get* out more than  two  words.      While   he   was   saying  those two words he  got   two  pairs  of  brakes   set.      The   train   struck     the  heavy semaphore  twenty   feet   high.  It,.snapped'   this   oil"   like   ,-t     match  throwing it over   thirty   feet.    At   the  switch tbe train left   the   I rack,   plowing its way  for a   couple   of hundred  yards, then  il.   struck   a    big   pile   of  boulders and stopped, or as much of it  as had come that far. within  12 fuel, of  the   section   house,   in   wliich     there  were five   men.   four 'of   whom   were  asleep.    The cars then piled on lop  of  it no  loss   than   three   tiers   high.    It  was   calculated   that   at   the  time  it  readied   thn    switch     lhat    it     was  travelling in the  neighborhood  of 100  miles   an   hour."   '.I'lie   escape   of   the  operator   was   marvellous.      He   said  he. was writing at-  the  desk   when   he  heard a slight rumble,    He. said   "that*  i.s the freight." but before the thought  had   found   expression   there" camo a  terrific  crash   and   everything  in   lhe  cabinet  changed   position.    A   heavy  letter press whicli was standing where  it received the   full   shock   flew  across  the room   and   was  jammed   in   the  woodwork.     AL     the   section   house  one of the men was preparing lunches.  He heard an unusual sound and  looking out saw the engine  swing around  the curve aliove the operator'.*., cabin  with a  streak   of   Hume   flying   from  every wheel.    lie shouted and jumped  for the door.     In the few seconds that  it seemed to  him  lo  get  it  open  and  and      get      outside,       the      engine  had   plowed   across   the    intervening  space aivl  he saw   the  terrible   panorama of iron and wood being crumpled  up like paper within a few feet of him  while the air was   full  of  Hying  fragments.    Several experienced trainmen  who viewed the   wrecked  said  that it  was thc most complete smash up they  had ever witnessed and commented on  thc escape of all   on   board   as   almost  incredible.

Mr.  Monroo went into  11 house rebuilt and newly furnished,  and wilh Mrs. Monroe as (ho successor  of "Queen Dolly Madison"' levees, especially  on New Year's  day, were tlie  features   of   Washington   life.     'Clio  terms of Mr. Monroe wero regarded as  those of good feeling, and this fact had  much to do with tho success of the  social entertainments.  During the following administration,  that of John Quincy Adams (elected  by the house), much ot the previous  good feeling was absent, yet lt was n  social success duo to the tact of Mrs.  Adams, for she not only kept up the  evening levees and New Year's receptions, hut attended to providing the  refreshments served and presided over  the frequent dinners. Sho tactfully  avoided all subjects of controversy.  In tho term of Andrew Jackson the  old custom ot holding New Year's re  ceptlons and levees wns kept up, the  wife of Andrew Jackson.Donelson being the hostess, and the general, ln  order to keep up-the hospitality to  which he had been accustomed, had to  draw* heavily on his private means.���������  Washington Star.

More social calls and ceremonious  visits are generally paid by French-  Canadian men on New Year's than on  any other day of the year. In the country parts of thc province of Quehec this  visiting often begins as early as ������  o'clock In the morning. Iu the cities  more than a hundred visits nre often  made on New 1'ear's day, and there  are always some callers who continue  their visits on the two following days,  though womcniare not required to remain in to receive callers on tho days  following New Year's day. Up to a few  years ago it was the invariable custom  to offer refreshments, including wine,  at every house where visitors were received. Though the old custom is still  observed in many instances there has.  lieen a largo falling off in recent years  in llie number of'-hostesses who'ott'ei  intoxicating liquors to visitors. ���������  Among rival village belles and ovon I  youn;.. leaders of French-Canadian city j  life there is much rivalry as to thc j  number of calls received hy each ol i  Ulji'iu on Now Year's day.

Tlie world over cards and dice are in  high favor as being supposed to indi-  -cate tho decrees of fate. The cards  and the throws are fortunate or the reverse in about equal numbers, so that  every one has a fair chance of obtaining an omen for good. The actions and  voices of tlie animal associates of man  were formei'ly on this day ahove all  others significant of good or evil to  come. A dog's cheerful bark on New  Year's morn was auspicious, his howl  a vory unfavorable sign. To meet a  cat on New Year's morning betokens  ill for the future, as, curiously enough,  it is regarded iu the Latin countries  as the sign of a coining change of rest-"  deuce. To see a snake Is the .worst  possible omen, for It signifies death by  violence. A few years ago aa Italian  living near Milan saw three snakes  together on New Year's morning before breakfast and was so frightened  that ho fell ill, became despondent and  did* actually die. .To see a pig-Is re* .  garded throughout southern Europe a������*.  a fortunate omen, signifying plenty in  the coming twelve months, while tht  Bight of a crow,a magpie or a jackdaw,  probably from tlie thievish propensities  of those birds, Is regarded as a sign  that the beholder will be systematically swindled during the- coming  twelve months.
