Queen Victoria, Our Revered Sovereign, Lays Down
The Earthly for a Heavenly Crown.
Born at Kensington Palace, May 24,1819; Died at Osborne House,
January 22,1901.
Coweb, Isle of Wight, Jan. 22 ���
Queen Victoria is dear) and Edward
VII. reigns. Quietly, almost gently, upon the ainiiver niy of the
death of Queen Victoria's father,
the Duke of Kent, the end of a
career never before equalled hy any
woman in tlie world's history, came
in a similar room in Osborne. The
most respected of all women, living
or dead, lay in u great four-posted
bed, and miide n shrunken utom
whose aged face and figure were a
cruel mockery,nf the fair girl who
in 1837 began to rule over England.
Around her were gathered almost
every decendaut of her line. Well
within view of her dyin : eyes there
hung a portrait of the Prince Consort. It was ha who designed the
ro��m and every part of the castle.
In scarcely audible words the white
haired Bishop of Winchester prayed beside her, as. he had often prayed with his sovereign, for he was
her chaplin at Windsor. With
bowed heads, the imperious ruler
of Germany, the man who is now
King of England, the woman who
has succeeded the little old Queen,
the Princes and those of has than
royal designation, listened tt the
Bishop's ceaseless prayers. Six
o'clock passed and the Bishop continued intercession. At exactly half
part six Sir James Reid held up his
band, and the people knew England had lost her Queen. The Bishop
pronounced the benediction. The
Queen passed quietly, peacefully
away. She suffered no pain. Those
who were now mourners went from
the room. Tbe whole world wae
jarred when the announcement
came, but in Ihe palace at Osborne
everything pursued tbe usual
The body of Queen Victoria is
being enhalined to-night and will
probably be taken to Windsor Saturday. The collin arrived last
evening from London.
The Prince of Wales was very
much affected when Ihe doctors at
ln-t informed him that his mother
had breathed her last. Emperor
William, himself deeply affected,
did his best lo administer to the
comfort of his stricken uncle, whose
new dignity he was first to acknowledge. From all parts of the world
there are still pouring in to Cowes
messages of condolence. They come
from crowned heads, millionaire*,
tradesmen and paupers, and are
variously addressed to the Prince
of Wales and to the King of England.
On Tuesday she went for a drive
but was visibly affected. On Wednesday she suffered :i paralytic
stroke, accompanied by intense
physical weakness. It was her
first illness in all her 81 yean, and
she would not admit it. Then her
condition grew so very serious that
against her wishes the family was
summoned. When they arrived,
her reason had practically succumbed to the paralysis and weakness.

When Great Corporations Engage in Mortal Combat
The People Benefit,
From all appearances there are
to be lively limes in railway circles
from this on. As these great enterprises flourish and the avarice of
their natures lead them to reach
out for more, morel morel! they
eventually come in conflict one
with the other, for there is a limit
to that for which their ambitious
souls strive���wealth and the power
that accompanies it.
For years American railway magnates have sought privilege on
Canadian territory, but in the interest of Canadian railway enterprise they have been denied the
field, at least so far as British Columbia is concerned. It now seems
that the people of this province are
becoming weary of the "free-band"
policy allowed the C. P. R. Its exactions have been too severe; have
retarded interior development by ill
discriminating freight rates in favor of the cities at the end of "long
For a long period the people of
Canada, through their governments,

dealing with its helpless patrons,
and protection against all competitors. This, after the people had
given it all it possesses
A change is coming over the situation. One of two things the people are now demanding, the benefits
of true competition, or government
ownership nf railways.
The result of all this has been to
convince the people's representatives tbat a more liberal policy toward foreign railway enterprise
would inure to the public good, and
bring the C. P. K. to the conclusion
that it does not constitute the only
worthy enterprise in the country.
It is universally conceded that
the time is ripe for the government
to throw down its barriers and give
all comern an opportunity to develop resources of this great interior
country, irrespective of the aims

lo a few terminal points in the hit-
est of "long hauls."
If J. J. Hill and bis co-workers
are allowed to bump up against
Mr. Shaughnessy and the capitalists he represents, they will likely
be relieved of their surplus conceit.
The incident which has suggested
the above paragraphs is tbe Strug

the one side and the Crows Nest
Coal company on the other. This-
fight is liable to uncover existing
conditions that will demonstrate

of ihe C. P. R. not altogether sanctioned by its charter.

January M, 1*01
Its Recent City Election a Great
Scrap���The Result a
Real Surprise.
The recent city election in Grand
Forks was a hot contest aocording
'to reports, the result being a great
surprise to all, and a severe shock to
the Manly-Smelter faction.
The Record is informed that the
night previous to the election Mr.
M. D. White, candidate for mayor
-Mil the citizen's ticket, was offered
$10,000 to withdraw.
Now comes the report that there
is a discrepancy in the city's financial figures amounting to hetween
,$60,000 and.$70,000.
Something like a year ago the
-city's hooks were experted, but the
report was withheld from publication, which caused many ugly rumors to be spread abroad.
i This, it is said, is the reason
.many citizens resolved to cut loose
from the Manly faction and swing
���out independently.
The aim of the citizen's ticket
apparently was to defeat the Man-
lyg���Lloyd A. for mayor, and W.
K. C. for councilman iu the Second
ward. That they were decidedly
successful, the following vole shows:
For Mayor���
Milton D. White  IM
Lloyd A. Manly,  M
White', majority 69
For Aldermen���
Flr.t Ward, H. A. Henderson, \V. J. Morrison
And John Temple, by acclamation.
Second Ward���John Donaldson 100.
Robert Harvey : 87
William H.Fl.ber 77
W. K. C. Manly... 53
Fisher's plurality over Manlv.... 24
The report is that the Manlys
were wroth at being thus ungratefully turned down, emitting dire and
divers threats against the life of the
.much vaunted city ensconced at
the base of Mt. Observation. The
defunct mayor, it is said, discharged his employes, closed his store
and declared he and his friends, the
smelter people, would kill the town
���put up boarding and lodging
house, big store building and supply their employes.
The new administration, it is
said, will be more inclined to listen
lo, suggestions from the law' nnd
order element.
Mr. White, the new mayor,is the
proprietor of a large watch, clock
and jewelry business ou Bridge
Utreet, a highly respected citizen,
and in his official capacity will be
supported by good counsel.
