by Andrew N'eidig. and Immediately stalled a lire in a Queen
heater, he then went to the stable to take cure of his horses.
Upon his return he found the
house In Haines. The tire alarm
was sounded and the tire brigade
was out in good time, and two
lines of hose laid, but tiie witter

to start the pumps. In the mean

such an extent lhat the entire

with a stand pipe and several
hundred feet of hose, the proprietor, with all available force
succeeded in saving the building.

the front of the hotel, which was
damaged also lo some extent by

In about an hour after the

Another Surprise.
In the second section of todays
Colonist will be. found an article
dealing with the proposed liml.
son Bay route In Em ope. Since
it wus written a summary of
some observations made by Mr.
William Mclnnis. of the geological department, u| the lands
lying between the lower .Saskatchewan and the upper waters
of tlie Churchill has reached us,
aud in order that the information
bearing directly upon the subject
of tlie article referred to may be
placed before our readers in as
complete a form ns is possible in
u newspaper, we give some of
the principal facts iu Mr. Mclnnis' report. The northern
limit of tile area which he has explored is iu 50 deg. This was
once regarded us forming a part
of the Barren Lands. It is in
fact a great forest covered urea,
lying nl an altitude of from "00
to 000 feet above sea   level,   Ibe
soil boing of sedimentary formation and very fertile.
Hitherto those persons, who
have paid any attention to the
country, have supposed that it
wus   ii    region,   where   summer
frosts would render agriculture
impossible, but Mr. Mclnnis reports thai duritig his stay In the
country there was only one night
when the freezing point wus
reached between the middle of
June and the 2l)th of September.
Exceptionally good potatoes are
raised in every part of the district where the Indians have
taken the trouble to plant thom.
In the lower part of the area,
that is In latitude 51 deg.. Indian
corn  ripens   every  year.    The
signiliciin if these facts is that
they show the width of the area
suitable for settlement in that
part of the country, in whicli
Manitoba nml eastern Saskatchewan are situated, to I,,. 7 deg,
or In ruiniil numbers 500 statute
miles. 11 hus beeu known for a
long time that agricultural Canada attained greal breadth towards the mountains, but there
has always been ii great deal of
doubt aboul iis northerly extent
in uioie easterly longitudes.
The Information, which Mr. Mclnnis makes public is therefore
of vnry great interest, and fur

SATURDAY, DEC. I. IIXW.
TII E most talked of man  in
British Columbia  is the
premier, the Hon.   Richard McBride.    A   war  of  slander  and
misrepresentation     has     been
against him.    All theoppositlon
guns, both big und small,  were
trained  against him,    But  now
these opposition guns are ubout
silenced, the smoke has cleared
up and premier McBride is  still
iu possession of all the points of I
vantage.   Mr. McBride is a natural leader of men, and  British
Columbia has never produced  al
man who has  displayed greater,
political  ability.    He  has    won I
the confidence-of the people of
this province   by his masterly
fight for better terms with  the
Laurier government.
...
The time is approaching wlien !
candidates for tlie provincial legislature are to be talked about
and it is worth while for the
voters of this riding to look over
the'ground carefully with a view
of selecting a man who is equal
to the duties.
.  .  .
'I'he political bee buzzing under the bonnets of certain politicians in this riding will  have'
to wait until  next year before
aspirants for legislative honors
can-start the '*hotair" movement j
injthe bananaMielt.

Free] -trade apostles fight
against 'every tariff restriction j
which might increase the cost of
products for the good of Canadian industry. They also
fought in favor of every legislu-
tive^restriclion which can in-
crease'the price of services rendered byifranchise holding monopoly.
...
That the dove of pence is not
hovering over the Liberal
party of llritish Columbia is well
known by all persons who lake
any interest in politics,
• •  •
Tlie endorsement of Richard
McBride and his government al
the next election will emphatically discredit the receul utter
unci's of the opposition leader in
his explanation of "bettor terms"
for this province.
...
Tlie political pot is bubbling
quito merrily on the Liberal tires
at Vancouver and New Westminster. These fires hnve been
burning for some time bul will
be quenched some time next
spring by a Csnsorvative tidal
wave.
Il is reported thai lieutenant-
governor Dunsmuir bus refused
lo grunt premier McBride disso
lution until he bus a full cabinet
This settles wlien the general
provincial election will take
place, also thai the McBride
government intends to run Its
full term.

Liberals Unprepared.
Tho speech of Liberal Leader
Maedonald, from which wequote
in ii previous article, wns
luminous because of u reference
the speaker mado to the probable
time of the forthcoming election.
If anyone doubts that the opposition leader is it humorist ull
doubts should be forthwith dispelled. Hu is reported to have
said in closing his first fatuous
campaign speech with those
words:
Ho did mil think the election
would be rung on this year. He
believed, however, that us soon
as the house was disolved lhe
election would lie rushed forward
In the hope of catching the
Liberals unprepared. He warned his hearers to be ready
whenever the call to arms was
given."
Evidently tlie only worry I hut
Premier MoBrlde hus these days
is to "catch the Liberals unprepared." With 'announcements
Hashed along the wires on an
average of once a week during
the last, six months the aggregation of the faithful is still
uncertain as to what the future
may hold in store. Only this
weelt one "high up in lhe confidence of Premier McBride"
says that an election is imminent.
And still the Libs are unprepared.
Now their leader I ells us
that through there may be
another session of the house
that as soon as dissolution is
announced that wicked man McBride will spring the elections
and catch the Liberals unprepared.
Inferentially speaking, that is
just what McBride will do. Not
because the bogey has not been
exhibited often enough, but because the Liberals cannot prepare. They have nothing to
prepare. They have been three
years trying to foment trouble,
obtain the material for a campaign issue, get some plausible
theory upon which to attempt
the fiimHIitming of the electors
of the province, and still are unprepared.
Not even the prospect of another session of the house promises to provide them with
material with which to prepare.
It is not unlikely that if the
house meets before another election the government will bring
down measures that will startle
the opposition. Some of these
are already well digested and
prepared. But if the opposition,
is unprepared now, what will be
its position after the sweeping
measures looking toward progress are introduced und passed
in the house? The hopelessly
distraugli t si t tuition of the opposi -
tion parly could not be more
forcibly emphasized than has
been done by the leader of that
party,, and if Mr. Maedonald
could be induced to tour the
country he would do the govern-
men as in ucli good as any of its
own spellbinders.
Just think of it, with the editor
of tlie Oranbrook Herald going
up and down the land, with Duncan Ross Inuring Similkameen,
having Mr. Maedonald with him,
with tlio editor of a local grit
organ looking into the labor situation in tha Similkameen, too.
After all this, to be unprepared.
Well—!

slater, President of lhe Sinter
Shoe Company.
It was Mr. Slater who asserted
positively at the beginning of the
year thut he was opposed to any
increase in the tariff on shoes,
antl he held that a good shoe
which made its goodness known
need have no fear of American
competition. This substantial
increase for Hie first half year in
in the sales of Slater Shoes, would
go to prove his contention in his
own particular case. The
Minister of Finance, Hon. Vi. S.
Fielding, asked a shoe man.
"Why don't you advertise like
Slater does?" Mr. Slater says,
"Why don't you make shoes like
