The Situation it Victoria.
Vancodvkk, Nov, 25.-D. M, F.he-is
having positively rcfi.sid the portfolio
it wjis uttered to W.  B. Mclnnes who
asked till ten o'clock thl night to con
sider the mutter.   Meanwhile he con
ferrt .1 with Eherts and  Iheir calcula-
lions convinced them that jointly thev
might he ahle to command a majority.
At the expi lation of the time Mulm.es
Informed Prior that he declined, und
urged lhat Kl. ita lie again  asked  to
enter   the cabinet.   This   was done
and Eherts consented  to   retain the
portfolio, conditionally upon Mclnnes
liecoming president of Ihe council.
In order thai I here might lie no oppor
tin.ity for allot her vol'e face, attorney
general 101 wits and W.  \V. H. Mclnnes were sworn in this afternoon, ami
with   a completed cabinet,   prelum.
tions for tin' elections in North Victor,
la and West Yale were at once begun.
T. W. Pi.tereon  having positively
declined the goveiuncnt candidacy in
North  Victoria,   Moss  Hoherlson, of
Moresby island, who has controlled the
district patronage  under the   Dims
muir regime, has taken the Held and
the government's effcuts, temporarily,
are concentrated upon keeping Pater-
son out of the running as an independent oppositionist,   In   Yale Murphy
invites the   most  energetic efforts of
his q.iondoiu friends of the opposition
declaring confidentially that his  constituents will have none but Murphy.
Efforts are being made to induce ex-
premier .Semlin to raise the opposition
standard against  his  protege, and if
his consent lie obtained the  new  pro
vincial secretary may regret his boasting.  Otherwise Stuart Henderson) of
Ashcroft, will probably lie I be choice.
At the capital supporters of the government declare that pledges of twenty two votes have been secured.   Ihis
is of course denied iiy the opposition
leaders who assert   lhat .Stables will
decline to follow Mclnnes'  had, and
that Neill has balked on advancing the
political fortunes of attorney general
Eberts.   Houston is also regarded as
a probable opposition capture,   upon
his declaration at the Revelstoke convention  applied  to  premier   Prior's
latest action.
Here in Vancouver the election for
the dominion house necessitated by
the demise of Oeorge ll. Maxwell has
produced curious complications even
thus early in Ihe g.ime, Kx governor
Mclnnis having just come into the
list as champion of tbo new Progressive Party of which he is the
II. Selikier, having for personal reasons declined the liherclcandidature,
H. 8. MacPherson, president of the
local liberal association, is the likely
choice, while Joseph Martin's friends
are silently advancing a plan for him

dominion politics, the plan it, is assert-
il lieing hot .without allurement to
the restless Joseph. It is a consequence of tii" prospective split thai

called for Thursday evening x\ ben the
peclilar situation will he discussed in
all ita conlradlclnriness,
Vancoiivku, Nov. 27.—Upwards nt
seven hundred liberals of Bnrrard district, including residents of Atlin,
rSlceena river, and other outlying districts, attended a preliminary party
meeting to night, lo arrange fir the
calling of a nominating convention,
and facilitating the election of a successor to the late Oeorge 11. Maxwell.
December 17th was sel for this assembly of representative liberals, and resolutions were adopted expressing the
continued confidence of the meeting
i.< .he Laurier adminisl ration, and urging the early issuance of the writ for
Bnrrard, so that tbe election may be
brought on not later than January
Aside from thus moving in the mat
ter of filling the vacant, membership,
o night's meeting assumed conspicuous importance in one other notable
connection. This was the absolutely
Unanimous adoption ofa resolution en
noising the stand taken by Jos. Mar-
iin in unqualifiedly opposing the pro
posal of the reconstructed provincial j
government tn transfer the new Fraser river bridge al New Westminster
to any private corporation. I » lib.
erals of Vancouver thus distil.c ,y ie-

Messrs. Wells Mclnnes aud Murphy
have presumably lent their support,
and in i his extent strengthen the hands
of thc opposition in the tight againsi
provincial secret ary Murphy's ciidors-

Through friends of Joseph Martin
it is learned positively to night that

The New Premier.

1001, j.i.d was unseated on a charge of
bribery liy ,i,i agent. He accepted
offl ce in lie I/unsmuii cabinet as min
islerof mines on Fehruory 27, IfXtt,
and was elected for Victoria city after
a most exciting contest with E. V'
Bodwell,  K. (.'.-Victoria Colonist.
For genealogy and antecedents generally, the new premier is all right,
but whether he will make an honest
and successful leader and administrator, we do not know. Time alone wili
tell, unless we rely upon the prognostications of the Vancouver News Ad-
y-rtiser, which, according to that
journal, are generally, continued hy
subsequent events.
Half a Million In Advertising.
Apart, altogether from the merits of
the case which the Tobacco   Commission is investigating,   au    interesting
feature of lhe evidence presented bas
been the disclosure of tlie amount of
money   which  lhc    two   companies
against  which   complaint  bas    been
made—tbo American Tobacco Co. and
the    Kinpile   Tobacco   Ciii—have expended of late  years in advertising.
It win  stated  that  lbe   former had
spent $2(17,0(11 in exploiting its wared,
•vhile the sister company has donated
in fnur  years  %'Ml,_xl9 towards   Ihe
same purpose.   This makes a mini of
.1)518,841).   It. was also stall cl   that the
Empire Company  under the former

Industrial  con.pa.lies    whirh   can
spend such sums as ihe-e in attracting
attention to what they   have to   sell
nu.81  le   formidable   competitors of
traders less fortunately situated, or
less impressed with the value of publicity.   If the American and   lhe  Bin-
pile Companies have captured a Urge
share of the Cauadian  tobacco li.de,
iheir liberal expenditure in advertising
must be credited with n large share of
the  result,— Went it al Herald.

' jigined the Dominion to consist of an

unit eil by act of parliament, hut there
wjis very little community of feeling
between I he inhabitants of the differ-
slit jjrninces. While Ontario and
Qu'lr.'j were jealous of each other.
they united in a somewhat indifferent
feeling toward the small .r maritime
provinces, which was hy them warih
h reciprocated. Formany years the
rJ paiate provinces had carried on a
\cry lucrative trade wiih the United

grant for the surface rights.  Then he
subdivided the land and sold it in
town lots 10 numerous persons.   These
lota are now p.r. of the town of Oreenwood.   In nccntdance with the law relating to taxation of unworked crown*
granted mineral claims demand has
been made for payment of the tax of
25 per cent per sere.   As Mr. Wood
has now no Interest in the property he
naturally does not want to pay this
tax and falling payment by some one

The school where thorough work is done; where the reason
s always given; where confidence is developed; where Book-
keeping is taught exactly as books are being kept in business ;
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is at   its
best; where merit is the standard; where the training in Civil Service, Telegraphy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them how to be
successful.   No argument is so eloquent as   the record of
things well done.    No mortgage can corrupt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do    When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done for
others is it better to trust to luck?   Is it wiser to guess?
