ihe public oitlces, und laciliiaUng an
OXChangO of lots, which is considered
desirable by the local authorities,
lhe proposal that money should he
advanced to enable the people to rebuild their homes was one that
could not be entertained. The people of Fernie ure not paupers. Ihey
are for the most part in a position
to muke u comfortable living.
Although they wero in very many
cases left destitute by the lire, some
of them doubtloss had insurance, und
very few of them have beeu deprived
of their means of earning a livelihood. It was a very unfortunate
thing that so many of them were
burned out at the same time, hut as
far as advancing money to rebuild is
concerned, the principle- would be
just the same if only a few houses
had been destroyed, and we do not
think the people of British Columbia
are ready to adopt the idea thut,
whenever a house is burned down, it
is the duty of the government to lot
tbe owner have the money with
which to rebuild. If this was tenable in any case, it certainly would
be in that of farmers, who are unfortunate enough to lose their dwellings
by forest tires. Isolated eases of
this kind are of frequent occurrence,
but it has never yet bean suggested
that the government should assist in
rebuilding. Fernie will, as soon as
things get squared away, be just as
prosperous as ever. What the people needed was temporary relief, and
this was forthcoming.
Apparently they have plenty of
money to guard against any distress, if the funds are wisely distributed. The necessary expenditures
in connection with the work to be
undertaken by the government, the
coal company and the railways, will
give employment to many people,
and, as the miner1 will continue operations, there ought not to be any
shortage of money in Fernie. For
these ronsons we think that the government has acted in a very liberal
spirit.-Victoria Colonist.

Coal and Steel
If we are to judge of the activity
of steel und iron, there is certain to
be a groat and increasing demand
for these products lu Canada. There
is no doubt but that the coal trade
of the country is shifting more towards Southeastern British Columbia, and no country, province or
district is in a better condition to
take advantage of it.

Mr. Hugh Stewart, the well known
confectioner of Cranbrook, hns purchased the handsome residence of

price paid for the property, only that
it was a cash transaction.

for the revision of the tariff, will be
of long duration, and it will witness
many stubborn contests over the
various schedules which it Is proposed to change. Mr. McCumber said
that the west will demand that several articles which are now on the
protected list shall be mado free of

the government  has a    fund  through
bi io ol which it buys seats m

cept bj permission ol tho premier, an
opinion thai is at all adverse to any
-.■ '\ i: amenl proposition or policy.
Should .. member condemn thai

punished by the ministers, and his

Impossible Thus parliament is
gagged and roguery Is facilitated.
When Inquiry Into wrongs is attempted, the majority, winch is under
I he ci introl of the ministers, resists
tbe production of papers bearing upon the iniquities or fights violently
against * Investigation,"
Mr. Marlin's disclosures, the Mail
points out, are not without corroboration. Their tirst point is to the
effect that railway subsidies are
.-.weated for political purposes. The
leaders at Ottawa beiietitcd by this
process wlien their allies were in
command at Quebec, and the money
was used in politics. If In tin'small
provincial sphere $20,000 was collected from one railway subsidy that
for the Balo tU'^ Chalours line -it
stands to reason tbat the millions
given as subsidies at Ottawa do not
pass through the toll gate free of
charge. That the "rnke-olT" is al
lowed on business transacted with
the government has been proven.
The plan, as exposed in the public
:accounts committee- iw Ingenious,
When the government desires to muke
a purchaso it. orders, not from the
j maker or vendor of the article, but
from u go-between, wbo adds to the
price       as     his "rnkc-off"      the
to 100 per cent. This "rake-off" the
country pays, and the money is
either retained by the middleman or
is applied to politicians and their
campaign funds. Mr. Martin says
the government sells tariff considerations to manufacturers; and that
money collected by the processes referred to Is used to secure the election of members to parliament is a
matter of notoriety. The Hyman
election in London, for complicity in
which four government agents are
now awaiting sentence to prison,
makes this plain. In that contest the
Ottawa ministry spent something
like $100,000, and there can be no
doubt that this huge sum, fl large
part of which was done up in envelopes and distributed among such of
the electors as were approachable,
was stolen, either through the contracting system, or through the
"rake-off" from the public treasury-
The Fielding election, for which the
finance minister was unseated, also
exposed the system that was pursued
Large sums were thrown into the
constituency, and some of the money
was bandied by the 3 peak or of the
Nova  Scotia  legislature.
But the strongest corroboration of
the statement of Mr. Martin is that
given a short time before bis death
by Mr. Tarte, who had been 111 the
cabinet, and who knew what practices were followed there. He said;
"It is notorious that in each election, in that of Mr. Kidding as in
that of others, much money Is expended. Mr. Kidding knows that
considerable sums have been employed in Nova Scntiu. He knows it und
he will not deny it. As Mr. Kidding
is aware, there are in the party of
which he is one ol the chiefs, and in
the government of which he is a
member, organizations, the duty of
which is to Hnil the sums necessary
to conduct the campaign to a sue
cessful end. The money comes, with

"I am going to   ride him
"No you nri" nut, he is my linrse,"
I said.
"He is nut. He belongs to Hrnwn,
the stuhle mun. was his answer,
and he started tn mount him.
The horse jumped nnd I grabbed
at the bridle, tbo lung cowboy hll
me and we quit the horse, uiul ut it
we went witli mu- hands.
In ubuut ten minutes Hrnwn, the

lt may interest our many readers
who purpose to buy a new Steel
Haunt.' in the immediate future to
to know that there hus been placed
on the market a beautiful Range
named  "Sask-alta."
Tliis name was chosen from among
20,000 sent in by various contestants,
and of course, Is a contraction ot
the two provinces "Saskatchewan"
and "Alberta."
The construction of this range indicates that if we wish to tind rock-
bottom merit in a stove, we must go
to the manufacturers who has
experience, the capital and the brains
The McClary Manufacturing Company, head oftice, London, and
branches in all leading centres, are
the largest manufacturers of Stoves
nnd Ranges in the llritish Kmpire.
This company is national in its
scope, und thf name "McClary" has
become a byword for honesty and
square dealing.
The Sask-alta Steel Range combines beauty with service, having
every ordinary feature with such
special and exclusive patented fen
tares as the following:
Automatic Lift Top and Broiler
Door which makes successful broiling easy.
Direct Drafts at front end of
Stove, which removes all danger tit
arms being burnt by pots, etc.
Double Duplex Orates, which can
be removed at the front, and whicli
can he shaken separately, therefore
saving red fuel.
Readily attachable or detachable
Reservoir, which means that without
the aid of hammer any person can
attach a Reservoir to their Sask-
alta Range.
A scries of advertisements explain

||   Is   what   most   boys'
get into when at school,
:aud if their clothing is
of the shoddy kind, it
means a new suit every
week or two. Why not
try the Lion Brand?
They are made from
special cloths suitable
for rough and tumble
wear ihe workmanship is of the besl and
the lil ahead of anything on the market-
Coats are made with
French facings — knickers have double knees,

Lion Brand  Suits.
PRICES  $4.50  &  $5   A SUIT.
