political^ expediency. The the measure of loss of these she
people of western  Canada  are | has sustained over this bound-
bitter because of this, and the
general trend of opinion seems
ary sacrifice.   We fully expect
there will be some plain speak-
Ut, be  that the action of   the ing by. the public,men and pub-
British      commissioners     has j He
started a wave of popular opin
ion which may be the opening
wedge of the weaning of Canada from the patriotic reliance
upon the mother country which
has marked the dominion in
tlie past. The action of the Canadian commissioners, Sir Louis
Jette and Mr. Aylesworth, in
refusing to sign the agreement
is heing applauded, for while it
is realized that there is no recourse for Canada but to accept
the decision which has been
given, the action of protest on
the part of the commissioners is
commended, for British Columbia and also Canada does pro
test strongly.
The   people  feel that  it    is
again    a    "compromise —    a
diplomatic settlement arranged
by the British  diplomatic  ami
acceded to by the British com
missioner for the sake of main
twining    friendship     between
Great Britain and  the  United
States.   There is a feeling, too,
that bodes ill for  the niainten
aiice vt tli*»-loyalty.pf the.duriivi
inion, for many remarks -oiut be
heard on the street corners that
it would be better for the dominion to throw in its lot with the
United  States" than  have   its
hinds given away pioco-meuHiy
Groat Britain for  the sake  of
imperial interests.
The British commissioner,
Lord Alverstone, is being oriti*
ized on all sides. His action is
agreeing with the Canadian
commissioners, as they state in
their manifesto, and agreeing to
compromise after discussion
with the American commissioners, is looked upon a.s a betrayal
of Canadian interests. Iu this
connection, a local paper says:
"He conceded that the Canadian had established their ease
:uid that the Americans had
failed. The boundary must be
carried along the crests of the
mountains parallel "with the
coast, The treaty did not eon-1
template that it should follow
the sinuosities of the coast, but
instead of being run along the
range nearest to the water, the
line is to be carried back to
some other range not distinctly
specified, so that our neighbors
shall not be deprived of one
inch of territory they at pros
ent claim. In other words we
have won a great moral victory
but the Americans have carried
olV the fruits of all it.
"The case, which waa correctly described iii press dispatches
as oue of the most complete
and convincing ever placed to
an international tribunal, in
which the contentions of American counsel wore admitted to
be weak and puerile, has ended
as we had some misgivings it
would end. Canadians have
gained the decision anil lost all
the profits which wore rightly
and legitimately theirs,
"Lord Alverstone has left it
with the American commissioners to accept or rejeet tho findings, as they saw fit, Canada
could not have boon worse off
than she will be under the terms
of the agreement. Her neighbors would   not have yielded,

dispersed $10,000 out of net pro-
business for the year. It shows
that blil.il tons of ore were
mined, which netted $100 a ton
after paying freight and smelting charges. The tolls iii the
case of first class ore wore $12 a
ton, and in the second grade
ore $5.75a ton. The ner, proceeds
from the smelter were $51,313!ii

Manager Duncan Mcintosh in
ids report to the conipany at
the annual meeting held .October
I, says that the cost of mining
seems high, yet it is not, when
it is remembered that the ore
bodies are small, averaging six
inches wide. The formation
being hard - and blocky makes
it necessary to take out about'
three feet of waste ground.
He estimates that on a most
conservative basis there are 750
tons of ore in sight, averaging
$100. He has advised that a
dividend or so be passed iu order
to accumulate a larger surplus.
A trial of either electric or 'air-
drills is recommended, not because work -with power will be
cheaper than by hand, but/ because,of the greater speed that
can be made.
Reports from the mine tell of
the discovery of a.parallel load
ih the Providence 12 incites
wide, with eight inches of solid
high grade ore. The strike
was mude ut a depth of 175 feet.

that thei'j will bo room for

the force at work on these properties is larger than for some

If the Fernie recount, which
is to take place at Nelson on
Monday uext, goes against the
Conservatives another general
election is almost sure to follow,
If tUo recount'goes against tne
government it is more than likely Premier McBride will refuse
to meet the house. A new
election is necessary to give
British Columbia the stable
government it demands and the
sooner it is brought on and got
over with the better. No gov
eminent, be it Liberal or Conservative, can conduct the affairs of the province with anything like satisfaction with such
a small majority as the Conservatives uow have. We have
an instance of this weakness in
John Houston demanding the
port folio of lands and works,
in the event of it being refused
him he will wreck the government. A new election is what
is required and it to be hoped
that which ever side wins they
will have a substantial majority
in the house.
A feature of the campaign
just over was the prominent
part taken in it by employees
of the civil service, both provincial and federal. The candidates of the McBride government stood to a man for civil
service reform, aud in nearly
every constituency they found
members of the civil service
prominent iu the councils of
their opponents. For these of.
tensive partizans—the term is
that applied by the Laurior Liberals at Ottawa—there should
be short reckoning. They have
chosen to use their offices for
political purposes, and having
failed in their object of dislodging the government that menaced their snaps, they should
pay the logical penalty. Those
inviting immediate attention
are the provincial employees;
but for the federal office holders who took so offensive a part
in the recent campaign, the day
of reckoning, probably, is not
much further removed. We do
not believe in applying the
American system of wholesale
dismissals upon change of administration to the civil service
of this province or this Dorain-
Nothing has ever before occurred to widen the breach between Canada and the Mother
country such as the giving away
of Canadian possessions to satisfy the greed of a grasping
neighbor. Canadians—and especially those on the Pacific
coast—realize fully how desirable it is that we should have
access over our own territory to
interior parts of the northern
region, and being denied this
brings forth expressions of indignation, clearly showing that
Canada and the Mother country
are aboilt at the parting of the
ways. The following dispatch
sent out frbm Vancouver ex:
presses the opinion of the people of that city on the result of
the unjust decision and it may
be said that it about expresses
the opinion of all British Columbians:
Local feeling is very bitter
over the award of the Alaskan
boundary commission.- There
is much talk of annexation am
of Canada becoming an inde
pendent nation. Business men
generally are much dissatisfied
at what they pronounce British
disregard of Canadian interests
to please the United States. A
common expression heard on
the streets is: "Canada has been
sacrificed in the house of her
mother." It is a matter pf
comment that the loudest
among the discontented are
Englishmen    residing     here.
Many of-these say that cauaOaj *""***» ™. ys?£4#ft, W*P™ to
will never achieve her greatest
possibilities -until she becomes
part  of   the   United   States.
Rev. Elliott S. Rowe, the
leading Methodist minister of
British Columbia,,' who,, with
Chief Justice Hunter, constituted the labor commission
which sat this summer,' in an
interview here today said:
"I am a Britisher and I have
always been a Britisher, but if
Great Britain is to hand Canada over piecemeal to the
United States, I say let us join
the American republic also.
By doing so we are large
enough, populous enough and
important enough to have some
thing to say regarding the
terms of such animation and
also would be potent enough to
have something to say in the
affairs of the republic of which
we would form a part. But if
we wait until our best and richest territory is given away, we
shall simply be absorbed. It
looks to me as if Canada, had
won the case and lost the territory."
Mayor Nellands of Vancouver
thinks that the Alaska award
may lead to the establishment
of Canada as an independent
nation.
"Imperialism and imperial
sentiment, which has obtained
such marked headway of late,
has been dealt a severe blow by
this annexation award," said the
mayor, "I think it will result iii
a strong and widespread movement looking towards the establishment of Canadian inde-

The commissioners of Ferry
funty are repairing the road
fctween the international
pundaryline at Midway and
urlew, Wash. In 1897 the
md was built by the Midway
|ompany, Ltd. on the east side
the Kettle river. Before
|mt time several fords had to
imade between here and Cur
fw. A portion of the road at
Iiis end went through govern
limit land which has since been
■omesteaded and the road was
foxed, thus practically stopping
traffic between here and
Purlew. The work now being
fone will give a good road from
fwo to that town and increased
(raffle will follow.

Bow Bia Worshipers Adored Their
Literary Mul.
One evening In the beginning of Jans
I wns taken to tile residence of Dumas,
on the Boulevard Mnlesherbos, bj aa
Intimate friend of the greut novelist
As oue thinks of a lion, with bis shaggy Diane full of the jungle burs of adventure, so I cun see the author of
"Monte-Christo" ns he appeared on thnt
mauiornhle evening.    Standing about
were women friends, actresses, writers,
poets, attracted by a world of romance
symbolised In tlte ttgure seated In ths
middle of the salon.   I was Instantly
Impressed with two things-thf fre»
coes on the wails and the attitude of
tlie host.   He sal like a silent oracle,
surrounded by a crowd of female ad*
mlrct's, tiie whole conipany set off by
panels representing life sized figures
from   Goethe's   grenl   drama—Vanst,
Mtphislo;,' eli'S. Marguerite. Th"rewer#
110 other pictures In thc room.   The Influence of these llgures, the attitude of
Dnnias and his worshipers, concentrat* ,
ed tlie mliiti on (lie iiulntpssentlal element of romance.   Half Indifferent he
snt. as seine handsome young woman
would stroke Ills head, while another
would place her hand on.his shoulder,
ns they might have done with nn old
Hon long lamed and  without teeth.
'I'l ere wns nothing to distract the mind
from the harmony of Idea and personality—thc conipnny of women  might
huve been part of the frescoes and
Dumas the creator of "Fnust" Instead
of "Montc-Clirlsto."   There wns an enchanted element ubout the people and
the room.
The whole coinpaiiy conversed among
themselves. M.imllng ns If thoy were
tit court, vrlit.e the host sat still and
mused. 1 was held by thc mystery,
the fascination of the romantic atmosphere, the pei'tillar spell of lhe huge
mass thnt tilled the fatiteitll like nn
idol of adamant. For there was something of the Idol about tbe man, I
thought of tt Buddhist statue In a sitting posture,. corpulent at the base,
crisp at the top. The lower part of the
face was of porcine dimensions, tho
skin swarthy, the hair curly, tbe expression of lhe eyes culm and sphinx*
like. Ho was a man who not only had
invented life, but had seen it.—Critic.

The school whefe thorough work is done; where tlie reason!
is always given; where confidence is developed ; where HooK-l

you know what a school can do for you by what it has done loM
others is it better to trust tj luck ?   I.s it wiser to guess ?
