WORKING  OVERTIME!;
In all parts of Canada just now
the Office is working overtime in its
endeavors to capture the man. Kor a
number of years the Office chased
Duncan Ross all over this district
but never could get a real good grip
of him. Finally, in dodging a judgment summons, Duncan back-tracked
and fell into tbe arms of the Office.
Mr. Ross is now said to be "fat."
For the past two years the Office
has been hot un tlie trail uf Martin
Burrell, but he was coy. When Martin has been tour years at Ottawa
he will doubtless be something mure
substantial in appearance than the
bisection of an attenuated shadow.

THK  AYLlflBWOUTH  Bibb.
The Laurier machine is uow trying
to make law, it policy, with whieh to
hypnotize the electors of Manltoha
and British Columbia. The boodle
sack was quite capacious, but cannot
endure the drafts that nunc with the
Artie, the G.T.P.,Bridge, Timher ami
Lund steals. Now that there Is an
election in sight, with dangerous
nnd black clouds looming up on the
political horizon; in this province,
und Manitoba, the thin red line will
he worked. The people are apt to
get weary of such attempts to "retain the confidence of the electorate.

NO GASH   FOR  EXPENBITURE.
A special from Ottawa suys: "Not,
a dollar for supply as long ns the
government adheres to ils determination to force through tbo obnoxious
election bill js the dictum of the Opposition. The government has exhausted the supplies already voted."
There Is nu money for tho ordinary
expenditures of the service, and hcv
era! days     ago   Sir Wilfrid   Laurier
abandoned the effort  to muke progress With  tlio estimates by  pleciplta
ting    tbe Ugh! i>n tin-    Aylesworth
itm.
Two 01' three limes ill the lust few
days Sir Wilfrid bus reached across
llu* House with the olive branch ex
tended. And many times he has
asked the opposition to grant turn
onc-etgllt ol the total estimates to
enable him to pay lhe country's way
fur a month, The request was rejected n,nd Irom the temper display
eil by the Conservatives it does not
serin likely that any money cull he
dot till the olection bill fight has
been ended.
POLITICAL ITEMS OF INTEREST,
The picture puzzle* of the newspapers are nut a strtiAow in comparison   with the    Aylesworth Election
Bill. Fur yuu can solve the former,
but the [alter is thu milch uf a riddle for tbe average citizen,
When a constituency places a man
in the House of Commons, ho should
stand by his promises to the people
by whom he was elected regardless
of political peril or anything else.
Such men as the big seven ol this
province, who have failed In every
instance to stand hy the issues upon
which they received the support of
the people should he eust out as
servants unworthy of future trust.
ITEMS OF INTEREST.
Mining,   Lumbering,   Agriculture and
Local Mutters of Importance,
Whatever may be the case in other
parts of the province, Cranbrook
has experienced hut little depression.
There has been a steady growth all
along the line; in fact, it may fairly be said that this City was never
in better shape, and certainly the
outlook was never brighter.
In mining development continues
slowly hut satisfactory, and with
the renewal of the lead bounty a decided impetus will he given to the
mining industry, Chief interest naturally centres in the very important
undertakings of the Bull River Power Company, and the big hydraulic
plant on Perry creek. These companies have already expended large
sums of money in the district in securing water power sites, and location of placer ground. These Companies have ample funds at their
command, and now that the details
of organization ami equipment have
been completed, we may, this season, confidently expect operations on
nn extensive scale being speedily put
underway.
The Lumber mills are getting into
shape for busy times. The manager
of one of the largest mills informs
us that notwithstanding a rather
poor winter for logging, most of the
mills have a big cut of lugs on hand.
That the trade with the Northwest
will depend largely on crop conditions, and as these conditions are
unusually favorable at the present
time, it is a sure indication of
healthy conditions in the lumber
trade.
The winter was a good one for
li,ve stock, tlie ranges are in excellent condition, and tlm farmers all
report good progress being made
with spring work, and bright prospects, especially in the fruit line for
the coining season.
FASTEST IN THR WORLD
The "Mistress of tbe Seas" still
rules the wave in power and speed of
naval armament.
It Is stilted that the new armored
turbine cruiser Idomitable, bus beaten all warships records, having
made 28 knots on the measured mile
on the Clyde, and keeping up 26-14
knots under continuous Btenming.

It goes h. show, however, that  tbe
government   Is anxious  to conciliate
the Opposition,   hut cannot  afford tu

pressure ol its  Manitoba supporters,
some ol  whom   threatened to resign
if the bill is not pushed through.

Whether Fa,rl Grey would consider
the obstruction nf the Opposition
sufficient reason for granting o dissolution before the ordinary business
ot the country has been transacted
Is not known, but the refusal to
vote supplies might constitute a
reason that would bo accepted by the
governor general.
Meant imi- the members are torn by

could make would surprise them very

Therefore, without in any way desiring to <-a.-t any reflections upon
our Baker Street contemporary, it is
the opinion of The Prospector that
v,hen he tackle.- anything pertaining
to the nomination of a candidate of
his own selection, or allowing others
to consider the political situation.
his judgement is warped by the pro
nounced Independent position of his
paper, even more so, than by the
noise of tho orators or the intrigues
of the place hunters in West Kootenay. nor by any of the other agon
nes which confuse those whn follow
oilier occupations.
It's pretty good dope.

We are in the midst of rather
strenuous times in this volcanic province. The prospects are that we
shall soon Ire engaged in another
(lorco Dominion election contest. But
compared with the majority of the
provinces in the Dominion, the magnitude of the struggle that is looming upon ihe political horizon of
Canada. our issues here must, up
peqr as paramount. That the future ol a great province is at stake,
and what we are called upon to do
is to restore responsible, clean and
hi mest gi ivernment at Ottawa, and
we need have no misgivings about
the future material welfare of the
province.

In "Sunshine" Furnace the
legitimate dust outlet is provided.   It's a great big dust-
pipe running  straight from
ash-pit to dome, thence to chimney.    When big pipe damper
is opened, all dust in ash-pit ascends to dome; then, when
direct drafts ure opened, all dust passes up chimney.

Tk*. committee uppoiuted to probu
the root of thu many suuuilal-* in connection wit Itthi-Miii ly btjimireheU House
of Commons, will soon make iu report.
ii perusing lts report w« ***k our
iviultM-s to rente va ber that it waa drawu
up hy & committee on which the
supporters ot the Liberal murium- nt
Ottawa were iu the majority. Under
those i'i.vumniani'1'ri it will not perhiip*
Ir* wondered at if the committee contented i ue if with trying to glva a mere
retiital of fata, covered with a plentiful
supply of white wash. Any inquiry
likely to reveal tfointfn Inimical to the
welfare of the Liberal party, will no
doubt be considered justifiable, and
white wash plentifully supplied.
On looking over the m-MHiuual reports,
aud the diacut-islnn. now taking placu
ou the Aylesworth Election Bill, we
liml that the representative from British
Columbia, are conspicuous by their
silence. The standard of politieul
morality by the H.O. members of the
House of Commons is coasidered aa party
feallty tirst, thu Province second. It
h indeed high time for the people of
this province to demand of thoir representatives a faithful performance of
their duties to the Province, or that the
fate which will befall thu Big Seven, be
considered a warning to all public men
that the narrow path of unswerving
duty te the high interests of the province entrusted to their charge is the
only safe road to travel.

to Burrows aud the imperial Pulp Co.:
