EDITORIAL NOTES,
When the "Water Clauses Consolidation Act of 1S117" wns passed, the
provincial government rushed from
one extreme tu the other, for us before
that Act became law, It wus possible
for Individuals or corporations to acquire forn song valuable concessions
in the shape of records for water, since
it has been in force, it has been demonstrated that llu* fees charged am almost prohibitive, The reason thai
such is the case, is owing It would seein
to the manner in whicli thi' revenue is
collectible, as the .Vet provides a certain scale of charges according to the
number of ininer's inches of water applied for, irrespective of the amount of
power to be generated by the use of
the water. As elevation pin vs a very
important part in the generation of
power when water is used, itis possible
for a coinpaiiy, where advantage can
In* taken of elevation,to generate a certain amount nf power with a certain
given amount nf water, whereas another company not so situated, or
where it is possible to take advantage
only ofi*. slight elevation, is obliged to
use a much larger volume* of waler to
generate lbe same given amount of
power, and is subject therefore ton
lllllell heavier tax. ruder these circumstances would it 'ml bn well to ii-
meiid the Act, sn that tho scale of
charges be based upon tliu unit of
horse-power obtainable. A uniform
scale of charges would then be eslab.
lisiied.

THE GOVERNMENT'S RAILWAY
POLICY.
The News-Advertiser discussing the
recent action of the Provincial government in connection with tlm Corbin
charter, bus In part the following to
say, and more pnrtlculary iu its closing
sentences does it strike the key iiotu to
the opposition offered by the Government to tho granting of the said charter.
"It is nnl, surprising thnt lhe people
nf the Boundary Creek district and nf
Sniitliein Kootenay should be very
indignant uver the efforts of tin* Provincial govern ii mul. to prevent a charter
belnglgrauted tothe Keltleliiver Valley
Railway company, Iind ilu* Government pursued a similar pulley in the
pusl, while il, might be criticised as
acting unwisely, ll, could mil be condemned I'm' inconsistency and Injustice
on llic presenl, iiccasiun. Iinl what
lire lhe fuels? Simply Ilinl ou every
iiccasiun in lhe past, when such it question came before il, it pursued acniir.se
exactly Ihe conlrnry Io that which il.
look Iwo weeks ago, ln the ease nf
tiie Nelson nnil Pnrl Sheppnrd Railway
il. mil merely granted Mia Curhin n
charter to cimslticl a railway tu open
lip Sunt hern Kunlenay before uuy line
had penetrated it in connection with
thu Canadian railway system, hm ii
aided Mr. Corbin iu Ids efforts to raise
the necessary capital fnc the construction of that, line hy giving him a laud
grunt which covered ilu* innsl valuable
lands in Ihc vicinity nf Russland,
Afterwards ii gaveMr.Cnrblnacliarli'r
fur ilu* Iled Mountain II illway which
runs from Rosslnnd In Noiilipurl nu
llu* ot her side of lbe huillidiiry, Lusi.
year it gave a dim ier tu parties--
aiming whom, if we remember rorrecl-
Iv, were Messrs, A. St. (I. llaiuet'sley,
II. ti.Tmilnw mel.I. W. .Me Fa i In ml of
Vancouver—fnr tiie Nelson and Bed-
liiiginn l(a<lway, which is designed In
put the Greal .Northern Railway in n
position In compete for the busines.- nf
the south-western pnrl Inn of West
Kooleiiay, Nul.ii wunl was said in
opposition lo these charters ou the
ground 1 hat they would divert trade
froui Canadian lowus, On ilu* contrary, as we have shown, in the ease nl
one nf the schemes, llu* government
aided it hy a land grant, estimated in
be worth smiiefhliig like $2,000,000,
"Suddenly there Is n complete change.
When the people nf Boundnry Creek,
weary of llle failure nf the goveriiinenl
to formulate any railway policy whieh
would give llieni tbe facilities ubso-
liilely necessary before iheir rich min*
eral resources can he developed, demand thai .Mr. Cnt'liln's requesl. fur a
charter shall be granted, Ihere arises a
howl about Canadian inlerests ami
patriotic principles! Where were Canadian Interests when Mr. Turner am!
his fri Is heavily subsidised Messrs,
Corbin and Dupoul tu build Ihe Nelson
and Fort Sheppnrd Railway? Where
did "pmriolic principles" come in when
llie churlcrs to ilie Red Mountain and
lhe Bedliligtnn railways were given by
ibeiioveri ni ?   Iln Ihe government
mul ils supporters wish to compel lbe
people to come to the cimclusiim that

San Jose Scale Act 1808.
A memorandum, issued by the Cus-
I'Hiis Depart in , Ollinva, to Collectors of Custiiins, gives Instructions
for the enforcenieni of the "Sun .lose
Scale Acl, 1808,"
This Act prnhihlts the Importation
Inlo Canada of Irees, shrubs, plants,
etc., commonly called nursery stuck,
from lhe United States, Australia,
Japan, nr Hawaiian Islands, in which
countries such stuck in affected with
I he Sun Jose scale. Certain vnrielies,
nut susceptible tu this pest, are exempted from Iheoparntinnnf the Act,
as follows: Greenhouse plants, such
is palms, ferns, orchids, cacti, chrysanthemums, azaleas, begonias, and
carnations t lull mil ruses or woody
plants, There are also excepted herbaceous perennials, such ns pblnx,
sunflowers, etc., the tops of which die
down in winter ; herbaceous bedding
planls, such as geraniums, pannies,etc;
nil conifers or cone hearing trees; and
bulbs and tubers, such as lilies, dahlias,
elc.
Under this Act,therefore,all nursery
slock Imported conl rnry thereto will be
seized and destroyed, and the importers
lliei f will lie liable tu a penally under lhe Tariff Aet, isi)7.
As many urchnrdists living close in
lhe Iiili'inalional buiuidiiry line have
been in lhe habit uf iinpni'ling small
parcels nf nursery slock frnni iiuu* lo
lime, they will be particularly Interested III knowing tlnil- lor lhe I'm un'
unly hoini' grown stuck musl be pin tiled
and as If Is lhe wish no doubt uf all
llial so serious a pest ns San Jose Scale
shall be kept out of llu* couulry, they
will readily fall in with uml ivspcct Ibe
above order, As the pest has become
so prevelant in snme purls uf Ilm
Slates, Ihose who have recently iin-
ported stock frum (here wuuld du well
lo iniike a Ihorough inspection ut it,
mid if any sign of scale is found, for
their nwn sake anil thul uf the coui-
miiully, the stock should be at once
destroyed, even if it. has tn be lorn up
after pluming, A radical measure is
the safest and lucst profitable in lho
long Illll.

The U.C. and its Title.
With tlmt ilisriigaid to accuracy so
characteristic nf a (irand Forks newspaper correspondent, a report has emanated from him aud hus lieen published iu several newspapers to the
elfect, that tiie issuance of a Certilicate
of Improvements for the B. 0, mineral
claim, in Summit camp, had heeu opposed hy the tiling of all adverse uu
behalf of the owner of the May, a prior
location with the result that, the uppli-
can t for the said certilicate hud resigned
all claim to certain ground alleged lo
belong lo the May, and that consequently the B. C, is only a fractional
claim. This statement U not in accur
dance with the fads of the case, which
are lhat no ground lias been claimed
for tlie B P. to which it is not entiled,
that no withdrawal of any claim to a
portion of the ground applied for as
part of l In* B. P. has taken place, and
that the, B. II. is only a fractional
claim through lhe overlapping uf the
May by one corner of the B.C. just as
the May is alsu u fraction fur a similar
reason. Both these claims aie, however, so nearly full claims that the
application of the wind "fraction" to
them is scarcely warranted.
