Britain has had to draw annually mi

Dnlled Empire Trade League recently
sent to Canada, n repr. sentatlve whose
duly il was In enquire llle possibility
nf lireat Brllnln being Biipplled willi

thereby mil onlyobvlaling iln* chance
of her supply lieing cul off In the event
of war, Inn ns well the upbuilding of
lbeeinplit* by iln' retention nf trade
within iis boundaries, In bis report
Mr. Perl lifer lias llml in say which is
nfgieal Interest in Canadians as il
sbnws lbe possibilities nf Un- inuniiy
nlong Ibe lines Indicated. We quote
froni flu* reporl :
".And what is there In prevent this
being done? I nni sun' [don'l knnw.
Here in tin* United Kingdom we have
the men that want the land, Ihere in
Canada we have Ibe land thai wanls
the men. Now, bow are we to get the
two together? Tin* laud cannot come
tu lhe men, sn lhe men musl gn lo lbe
Innsl. Sir William Cmokes (1 quote
him because lie is a great authority)
went nn lusay what a grand lliing it
would be if we could grow most if not
all our wheat supply here al home in
Ihe liiilish Isles, and be wished we
could spare 110 square miles more in
Mils country for the purpose, Hot if
we cannot spare ll here, we all know
where they can. Why 110 square
miles, winch seems such a big piece
tons, would only be'a drop in lhe
bucket1 in Canada.
"Manitoba alone has an area of
17 million acres. DeductinglOnitlllnn
foi lakes ami "iv.ns, lownsiles and
waste land, 117 million acres are left for
farm cullivsuion, or homes I'm- lib'.OOO
families uu ii'2il acres each, and as up io
now i bein are only Tt 000 fill lm is lliere
altogether, lhat leaies io  in lhat
nne |irovlnce fnr 8I1,C00 more wheat
growers, Supposing Ihen we gnt thein
Ihere, ind each one of Ibeiu nut of his
8H0 acres grew on an average Kill acres
at 20 bushels to the acre, if ynu llgure
it up you will lind it is quite possible
for Manitoba alone lo supply us wilh
all llle wheal we require from abroad.
"ll is only a quest ion of ninney, aud,
conipitralively speaking, nm much
money either. The cost ol one lirst-
class haltleshlp (ahoul iSoO/JOO) would
put,6000 families nn In farms in llie
,\orlbwe.-i, allowing £150 pounds In
each In Ihul llu in in impleineiils, seed,
horses, elc, as well as to keep Ihem
unlil llieir Iirsl. crop was harvested,
Five thousand farmers averaging W0
acres nf wheal each, al 20 bushels per
acre, means an extralO,000,000 bushels,
"lint if ynu don'l like ibal. way of
doing it, here Is anolher. Canada has
given lhe Mother Country prefereniial
irenlineul. She admits uur gnnds ai a
much lower rale of duty than foreign
goods. Now suppose we reciprocale
nnil give ber preferential treatment,
either by pulling a small duty on all
foreign wheat and let I ing hers come in
free, or by giving a liounly lu Canadian grown wheat, or liy doing sol	
lliing Ibnl. wuuld make wheal growing
iu Canada more [irolitabie than in Ihe
United Slaies. We should Ihen see
the lisle of immigration na I'm- as
agriculturists are concerned, turn from
America and How towards Canada;
and nol only sn tint we should have a
regular rush of farmers from Illinois,
Wisconsin, Nebraska, Minnesota, Kan-
ssss and nlber Slnles uf the Union, inin
Manitoba and the Northwest Territories."

A Needed Change.
The postal dcpartiiuiiil ni Ottawa
has at last listened tothe solicitations
of Ihnse win. for a long time piMil
recognized lbe necessity of u rhaugo in
llu* system ui jmsl officeinsjiection nud
the mail service generally throughout
the province, and sis a result iwo Inspectors will for the future attend tn
these duties, Mr.lv. H, Fletcher being
assigned ton Bejiaratfl district constituted by Vancouver Island nnd a
portion of the Northern Mainland, and
Mr. AV. II. Dornian tn lbe Consl and
Interior service. Mr. Fletcher will lie
stationed at Victoria wliilc Mr. Dor-
man will have headquarters! al. Vancouver,
That Mr, Fletcher's sphere nf Influence is now confined to the Island will
be grateful news tn tbe people of the
Mainland, snid more especially to
people of this district, who suffered for
years untold inconvenience, which
the; believed it was within the power
of the Pust Office Inspector tu remedy,
Mr. Duriuaii has had many years experience uniler Mr, Fletcher, anil is
referred to hy the press as inure competent than the latter, therefore much
is lo he expected frnni lhe change,
Claims Bonded.

Knob Hill and Olsl Ironsides iu Greenwood camp, nl tracts investors ami
entices llieni in pui iheir money into
oiher properties lo be found in lhe
same camp, therefore Ibal the pasl
week saw two other cliiiins bunded
elicited no great amount nf surprise,
The locations over which negotiations
w°re brought lo a head as above slated,
are known as Ihe Nellie Cnltnn and
Mystic, two claims lying to the south
west of lhe Knob Hill. These claims
were discovered and slaked by Mr,
Sutherland an old lime llouudary
Creek} prnspecl or, iu 1805, aud sun
sequently.he snid an inleresi lo Mr,
Hal, J, Cole, nl Spokane, ll was from
these parlies iherefore that Mr, W, T,
Smith, whn is acting on behalf of Mon
treal capitalists, seemed the claims,
the bunding consideration of which il
Is snid reached the neighborhood of
$20,000, len per cent, of which has
already been paid, Ihe balance lu be
furthcoming in two equal instalments
within a year. That the Nellie Cnltnn
and Mystic are two valuable local inna
anyone acquainted   willi   ih  will
readily testify, for apart fnnn their
heing In Greenwnod eamp, aud in
close proximity to the Knob Hill, they
have, plenty of mineral In slghl, nu less
than Ave distinct ledges heing traceable
through the claims. Knur of I base
ledges, which are very wide, entry
pyrilic copper-gold nres.and.l.he olher,
io which the vein fillingisquarliicarry

called lhe No, 2 ledge, and a 15 I'ool
shaft, nil in ore, on the Nn. !i ledge,nl*n

ledges.
Tbe parlies who have secured the

once and will slarl development by
sinking a big working shnfl isu Ibe No.

intersected by Un* No. 5 ledge. The
opening up of these properties will give
employment to several men, .and as a

perily lo Greenwuud cainp, and in fact
In the whole llial I iat.

Needs of Cascade City.
Pursuant to tbe invitation extended
by the government tlle citizens of
OnseaJeOity held a public meeting on
the 21st nf November, and appointed
a committee to draft a petition to the
i government setting out the needs of
| the lown nnd tributary district, and
that lhey were moderate in their de-
mandsand recommended to llie gov-
eminent only such renovations as the
town and district absolutely stands in
need uf can be gleaned by a perusal .,f
tb ■ following!
Schools -Thai lbs fast Increasing
population nl this place renders il
necessary that a public school building
should In* ei eel ed. There are now
I ivent voiiis Bchnol children upon the
roll, nnd lbe presold school building,
which .vas erected at the expense of
Ihu townsite company, is Inadequate
in meet ilie ileinmids nnd requirements
ufihe resident school children,
Ai'.mimsi'uation ok Justice—That
lliere is unly nne resident Justice of the
Peace in this lown. and cases often
arise in which two Justices or a stipendiary magistrate are required, In order
In try a ease of ibis kind we have to
send to Grand Porks, a distance of
fourteen miles, or to Gladstone, a dis*
lalicn of twenty miles, tn procure a
second jusiice.
.llr. I'lkins, whnashorl lime ngo wis
deputed tn attend to Ihe police duties
uf tills lown, has resigned, and Mr.
Jauies Dairy has been sworn hi by lhe
residenl Justice uf Pence as a special
ssi' acting constable.
This eiimiiiiitee siniiigly recommend
lli* appointment nf number efficient
pollceotttcer to net in conjunction wiih
Mr, Dareey. This matter is most im-
purtant. Asis usual with railway constructions ihis town is populated
largely liy a rough element, anil in
order to hold ihese peuple ill subjection
a good nnil capable police service is
required.
CourtAND Jail—That there is no
emirl hnuse nr jail ill this town,
Your pelitluuei's have learned that
th,- s, if $100 was appropriated by
tbe government for lbe erection of a
jail, The ihe Cascade Development
Company has genetnusl.y offered a lot.

imse, suid your petitioners Hud ibal,
uiili the expenditure of the abuve sum
so appropriated, a suitable liuililing

j'.s.M.M.i, Debts Court—That your
is'iiiiiiii-i's alrunglj! urge lhe constitution of a small debts court for Cascade Cily. Cases arise daily where
-neb an instiiutioti is necessary.
Owing loilu* waul of sueh a court,
many small debts are allowed to pass
unpaid—the claimants preferring to
forego their rights rather than go In
llie nine stud expense ul sending to
Grand Porks for lhe issuing nf lhe
papers requisite tn enforce payment,
Roads and Bwdqes—That at the
north-western portion of this lown, the
innil lending to Grand Porksand thence
in tbe Boundary (westward) is almost
Impassable, nud exceedingly dangerous
io singes and private parlies passing
over this highway. This committee
have been informed that, apart frnni
Ills* regular mail singes, at. leasl seventy
live teams per day pass over this road.
In this counecliou we can sta'e lhat

ate oi opinion ihal ihe promoters,
afler spending st large amount uf
money for the proper equipment of
llieir hues shuuld be entitled lu some
gnveriiiiienl support ill lbe way of
providing a suitable highway,
The bridge which crosses the Kettle
river, below Cascade falls, and the
road leading thereto, were on or about
lhe 16th day of August last taken over
by lhe local goveriiinenl, and a cheque
issued to ilie Cascade Development
Company for same, amounting to
$750.00, which check lias nm been paid,
Inn payment of such cheque has been
repudiated l.y the government,
Tin* Provincial Government has not

McAULEY & KEIGHTLEY, Proprietors.
Ottawa, December Hi'd, 1808,
The principal utterance of the week
In Federal politics has In en the speech
of the ex-Minister of Finance before
the Young Conseivntive Club in Toronto, and tiie principal characteristic
| of that speech was Mr. Foster's complaint, that tho presenl government
! ivas claiming credit for ihe prosperity
j of the counlry whereas such prosperity
j was the outcome of lhe late govern-
' nieiit's policy which ils successors were
carrying on Intact, There are, however, two fundamental errors hi ibis
assertion, which will be apparent wilhoul any elaborate Investigation,
Two Fundamental Ebbobb,— In
the first place llie present administration luis not at, any lime, claimed
I'l'edit for the return of prosperity,
which was, by tlle way, admittedly
coincident with its assumption of the
government of the country, further
than II Is entitled to, by tiie adoption
of a policy which utilizes the bounties
of nature, and the benefits of natural
development, to the best advantage of
the community as a whole.
The second mistake Mr. Foster made,
was his declaration that the old Conservative policy is lieing followed today. The obi trade policy was one of ex
treme and extravagant protection, the
new policy, declared liefore the last
general election, is a revenue tariff,
"reduced to the needs of honest, economical nnd efficient government," a
tariff which, "while not doing injuries
to any class, would promote domestic
and foreign trade, aud hasten the return of prosperity to our people,"
What thkCuAxoi! has Bni'ix.—The
first budget speech of the present
Minister of Finance, indicated the
manner In which this anti-election declaration was to tic [inaugurated, it
proposed to abolish many specific
duties on iron and steel, thus advantaging every manufacturing industry in
the country using these as raw material. Moreover, it greatly increased
the free list, and reduced the duties oil
British goods,- last year by an eight,
and now by a quarter of the existing
duties.
Realizing, quite as fully as its critics
could possibly do, the necessity of moving slowly that exist ing interests might
inn be Injur! nisly affected, the government at first proposed changes much
less drastic than the principals! of the
party would wnrraiif.Toi' tlieiii iin.-lin-
ntii n dictate, biit.even with this partial
iinielcoi'.'ition, and with only il moiety
of the British preference In operation,
the Imports of 18118 increased more than
tt>2O,0-JO00O over those of 180U. Of this in-
crease the dutiable goods claimed
'$7,-100,000 and the free list $12,000,01X1:
the duly collected upon Ihese Imports
Increasing over $1,700,111X1. Whether
there has been any reduction made in
the tariff may he judged Irom the fact
llial the duties ol 181)11, levied upon the
imports of 1808, would bnve produced
a custom revenue of nearly $2,000,000
inoro than the actual figures, This
was «iih only 12;. per cent, of a preferential reduction on British imports ;
with the presenl 2*. per cent reduction,
the saving to tiie consumers,of course
very greatly increased. In spite of ull
this tlle present tariff is declared to lie
us high ns the old une,
TlIEBE Alili "TIIKit DliAHTil.'l'HANOI'S
This is only one instance, though admittedly a most important one, uf the
manner in which lhe policy of the
present adminstrutlon is nota continuance of the one followed by ils prede-
resssurs. The change of the Federal
franchise is another most noteworthy
departure. The strict scrutiny of all
public expenditure and the entire disappearance of the disgraceful scandals
which so marred the record of the late
administration, is a departure from
Ihi' old policy which has had a tremen.
dons effect upon lbe estimation in
which the Dominion is today held in
othei' lands, The activity shown In
carrying on, and completing, import,
nut public works whlcb will benefit flu*
Dominion nsn whole, isa striking departure from the nld policy of Incompetency and delay, Of this no hetter
illusliiiliiin sain lie found than in the
deepening uf the St. Lawrence canali,
where, this season alone, more work
luis been done, Ihnn during several
previous seasons, owing to the abandoning of the policy which kept the
work dragging along, that If might he
utilized advantageously for the benefit
of government candidates prior to
elections, and the adoption In its place
ofa po'loy of rushing through a most
necessary improvement, because the
trade of the country demanded it, and
was hampered by the innumerable delays.
These are a few of tlie changes that
have been made from the old policy,
and its a small compliment to the
Intelligence of the YoungOonservatlves
of Toronto, and of the country, to offer
thein such a biased statement of the
situation, as the ex-Minister of Finance
was betrayed into doing In bis recent
speech.
