Toronto, Jan 25 —The Ross guv.
crutncnl went down to disastrous ,.e-
feat today At most tbe Libera.)
party will have only 26' member! in
the new legislature and some .'Sti*
mates place tbe number at 25. So
fat as can be learned tonight the new
house will consist ot 72 Conservatives and 26 Liberals. The Conseva-
tive-s gained 28 seats held by the Liberals in 11,02 aud the Liberals captured three only from the Tories
Premier Ross barely escaped deleat,
only securing a majority of 31) in
West Middlesex. Attorney General
Gibson and Minister of Agriculture
Dryden were among the defeated. One
ot the surprises ol tlie campaign was
llie election oi two Liberals in Ottawa
The defeat ol the Itoss government
occasioned no surprise here, though
such a complete snowing under had
not been looked tor.
It is too early yet to announce
what steps Premier Ross will take,
but it is understood that he will te-
lire as quickly as possible and make
way lor his successor, .1. P. Whitney.
According to the latest reports lo,
night the house will be composed as

"There Is nothing else. But will you

he was still for u long time. The gray

After   two   years of hard work, 1)
C   Corbln,   the   well known railroal
bmldifr of     Spokane,    has overcome
many obstacles, and is now in a po-
o  sition to bring the Canadian Pacific
the  railroad into Spokane    The ncce1
I have bought from ns in former year's
I at good  figures.   The grain and hay

j young farmers who went every winter to the lumber woods of British
Columbia and brought back thousands
of dollars with which they Improved   _.    , -   .,

fore some ol uur representative
"What will he the length ol   -our
"Krom 135 to 140 miles."
"When could It be completed?"
"If     construction     i*s started  this
spring, the road could be in operation
I think by May or .June tbe following year.   There is heavy work alua^
the Kootenay and Moyie rivers which
will  take.  tfme.   Tbe grades,   iboiun.
will be easy."
Both Mr. Coiblli and Ibe Canaliah
Pacific have bad engineering parlies
in the field, and Ihe entire line las
been surveyed and located.
"It is probable, though, that n
number of changes will be matin,1.'
said .Mr. Corbln, "Leaving SuoK.uie
we follow pretty closely the line of
tbo Northern Pacific to Ruthdriin.
Idaho; thence oui course is north W
east tu the mouth of tbe Moyie river
where it empties into tbo Kootenay,
and thence up the valley of the Moyie to the international boundary,
"Tbe Canadian Pliclflo would have
to build only iu or 12 miles from its
Crows Nest Pass line to a connect! >n
with our mad at, the boundary."
.Mr. Corbln said that the equipment
and terminals ot' his line will cost nol
less than IGiui.bbri.
Mr. Corbln, who proposes the building of tbe new road is one of ibe best
known men of tbe wesl, and where-
ever known bis word is considered us
good as a bond. Ile came lo Montana in the 70s and for some time
wns cashier of the First National
bank of Helena. Later he returned to
New York, but subsequently jane
hack to Montana, whore be acqtill'cd
interests in mines and smellers.
In INKti he built tbe first railroad
into the t'oeur d'Alenes. This toad
ran from the old mission, at the bend
of navigation on the Coeur d'Aleuc
river, to Wardner, Wallace ami llurk.
At the old mission it connected with
steamers aud barges, whieh ran to
Coeur d'A le ne city. Under an st-
rangeinent with llie Northern Pacific
Mr. Corbln built tbe 13 miles of tall*
road connecting the Northern pacific
main line with Coeur d'Alene lake.
In ibe fall of issh he sold out Uus
Coeur d'Alene system to ibe North*
ern Pacific.
He came to Spokane iu tbe spiing
of l*Vi, and that year built tbe -Spokane Falls & Northern from this my
to Colville Later he extended '.bis
road to Rossland and Nelson, In
British Columbia Several years later be sold the S. F. & N. to ihe
Northern Pacific, which afterward
sold it to the Great Northern in
lH'm be built a large beet sugar factory at Waver!y, Spokane couuy.
This important enterprise he still
owns and manages. He Is a larre
owner ol local realty, and has a isl-
atial residence at Seventh avenue t rd
Stevens street,
Mr. Corbin's road would connect
with what is known as the Cro-vs
Nest branch of the Canadian Pacific,
which leaves the Canadian Pact .te
trunk line at Medicine Hat. From
Spokane to the main line of the Canadian Pacific the road would pen'>
trate a country of great resources,
including coal, timber, minerals, livestock and agriculture.
The Canadian Pacific is one of »l.c
greatest railroad systems in tne
world. It operates nearly 9,000 mil js
ot railway. In 19Q3 it had 74.1. low>-

Io another column of this paper v ill
be found a lettei Irom Charles
Schack, or High Unci. Alberta, that
shown Up the meal In tbe cocoanui,
t,o lar as ibe Territories and Manitoba are concerned on the question ot
duly on lumber. He states in the letter that he is in receipt ol a communication fiom representatives ul

Mr. Schack lives in lho Tcrrtlorhw.
where lumber is u great necessity,
but he is not narrow minded, and is
able to sec into the inline. He sets
iorth the fact that Uiu Territories
must have a market lot their produc
aud that Hriilsb Columbia is that
market, and then im reasons well,
wben he asks why tho people ul tin
prairies should use their Influence ti
hill oil the only market that is opci
to them, lie goes further io demon
straw ihe siieugih of Ins stand, ly
showing tlml tbe depression during
the past year in ihu lumbei' industry
uf British Columbia, has brought
about a corresponding depression
the sale uf prairie products.. And
tbcu as a clincher, be asks ll it ii
not the duty ol the people ul his sec
tlou, and all ul those who have i.
look lo lho mountains for the sale ol
iheir products, tu spend their motijj
in llruish Columbia, whore u will
come back, rathei Iban to send it I
a foreign country, where it will fi
mam ioicvcr.
Mr. Schack lias bil lhc nail squarely ou the head. The people of ilu
United States naturally desire u
keep this market open for their cheaper grades ol lumbei. Tbey are perfectly willing tu petition the Dominion parliament through then Canadian representatives iu refrain from
placing un a duty that would keep
American lumbei out of tliis country,
Tbey tare nut whether British L.i
lumbia's lumber industry languishes
neither du tbey lone any sleep
over the probable decline of llie farm
iug industry of the Territories and
.Manitoba so long as tbey cau keep
ibe market open lo suppl) lumber lo
■ meet the demand of heavy immigration. But il the American lumber
manufacturer is permitted to nave
his way, the abseuco ui a market fi
western producu will do mure to ma'
tbe settlement ol the prairies of the
Territories a dismal failure than all
other elements combined.
A few weeks ago George W. West
a dealer in teed, meat and butter, o
iuni.sfa.it, Alberta, was iu Cranbrook,
and paid Ibe Herald unite a visit. It
was bis second trip to South East
Koolcnay, and during a conversation
regarding conditions, he said: "On
my lasl trip hue 1 sold several
loads of produce, but tins lime 1 lind
that tbe lumbermen, my chief
turners, are not road)' to buy. What
is the mailer.'"'
vAe told him briefly, but plainly
and be saw the point and acknowledged it. He hnd experienced whit
Air. Schack predicts iu bis letter. The
American lumber bad closed down the
mills oi British Columbia, had
thrown hundreds or men out ol
ploymeiit and had paralyzed the
(luce trade oi ihe Territories.
That is the wind.- situation, except
that lho men who ,,re pi
against a duty un lumber, aie today
aud have been fur a long time ihe
beneficiaries ol a tarW on tholr twi
products. Evory buyer of pra.rl
products in British Columbia pays
tribute to tbe tariff on farm products
as well as to the larill on every man
ufactured article ihey iuircha.se. The
lumber manufacturer of British ''o
lumbia Is not asking for trust privileges; he is not asking for an oppor
tuuity to raise the price of lumber;
he simply asks that the market that
is legitimately bis should not be taken by American manufacturers who
enjoy advantages that make it
possible for the lumber manufacturer
uf British Columbia to compete with
The whole matter is simply a question of justice and business. And the

The attempt to assassinate Mi
Davys, a mine manager, by a unloi

the nu.ml of the immortal Micawberj
as to ibe disparity between income]
and expenditure. '
As to qui commercial relations
with Great Britain and ibe United |
states respectively, the speaker
pointed out that while in live years,
from lfluu io 1804, Inclusive, wo
bought from Greal Britain merchandise to tbe value of $259,000,000, rnd
we sold t" her $578,000,000, we
bought Irom tha United States In tbo
same period merchandise to the value
ol $007,000,000, and sold them $357,-
000,000. -\\e therefore practically
drew bills tl exchange on Groat Britain for $330(000,000, and paid $310,-
000,000 of il- to ihe X nlted States,"
While these conditions last, Mr.
Walker urges, we must try to overcome such a one-sided state of affairs
by making its far as possible at home
everything that is now bought   from
the  State:-,   and   bv   diverting   to  our
better customer, Great Britain, by
preference ot otherwise, all tlie trade
we can. Tbe (GCiproolty of fait dealing is tbe only kind Which Canada I... -

which the Americans are not likely

The minute analysts made in this
address of natural and Industrial products in tbe various provinces i.s extremely Interesting, And there ari
throughout suggestions made of a
slrrowdl)    practical   character as t,.|
actual  wastes and possible economies
in our management of such Important
departments ol production as the fish*
cries.(ihe paragraph on Nova Scotia
fisheries is very striking), the forests
fruits, anil othei sources of natural
wealth, as well as in manufactures,
in some departments of which wc are
making'noteworthy progress, And a
pregnant paragraph bearing upon Toronto and the conflagration of last
April contains these words; "Does
not the new high rate of Insurance
show us thai ii is (his community
wbieb in the long run loses every dollar in value that was destroyed by
the greal lire'.' And if Ihis is true,
us ii clearly is, wc should not hesitate to obtain every deterrent to lire
llial is reasonably'possible, and every appliance for Its extinguishment
Ihat could be made available in the
bauds oi our firemen or ourselves."
Predicting wiih much confidence a
great future for Manitoba and ihe
Northwest Territories of the Dominion, Sir. Walker nevertheless insists,
with commendable foresight, upon the
dangci ilf over-cropping that rich
prairie soil and the prevailing neg-
leei uf fertilizing, changing its crap
and otherwise rearing this land. "Is
the rich land of the Northwest su
rich," he asks, "ihat il can defy for-
ever these principles of cultivation?"
And a word in season is spoken to

mania for owning quantities ut land,

Tht itowspaprr men ol Western il-
berta and Kan tern llritish Culumhi,
met in convention at Calvary last
Thursday and Friday for the purpose
of forming a pram Msoelatton. We
call  tlit'iu     iii'ws|ia|H.*r men, although
some people engaged in the business
Iovb to bo desipnatrd as journalists.
Hul MOOfdlni to our views on ifaa
question Hit'ip vas not a journulisi
in lho bundi. A journalist would
starve to death iu Western Canada,
while the nowspapei men look like a
lot oi prosperous Individuals who luxuriated in three meals a day snd
clean beds SuIIice it to say that
tbey went to Calgary lor the purpose
of forming an up to date, live press
association lor mutual benefit, .-.nd
they succeeded. There were about -10
members of the emit present-, and the
term cralt is used advisedly. They
formed an association to be known
as the Alberta Press Association. The
Llritish Columbia and Assinaboia
members made no objections to ihe
name as both ol these divisions f-.ro
so well known throughout the civilized world that the fact that ihey
were left out ol tbe title of tbe association would cause no comment
whatever and really make no differ
J. J. Young, proprietor,, manager,
and the big It of the Calgary Her
aid, was unanimously elected president of the new organization, and
Colonel Porter, formerly ot Ken
tucky, was selected as secretary
without the semblance of opposition.
The Colonel is one of the best all-
around newspaper men in Canada today. Ile can write editorials, wilt
telegraph, rush a column of hot local stuff, read proof; dash off heads
that show spirit, and entertain three
or lour visitors at the same time,
and always wear the smile that never comes off. Years agowhenUic Old
Man was an innocent cherub of a hov
chasing news on the morning .Journal
in Knnsa CtLj, Missouri, Colonel
Porter was performing a like service
for tlie morning Times in the same
city. Wc knew each other in those
days of slrenotis life, and that was
17 years ago. Tlie Colonel was then
considered the star reporter of that
star paper, and bis friends were
legion. As years passed we drifted
to other scenes and so did the Colo-
I nel. Destiny and an uncontrollable
desire to better onr condition drove
jus hoth to Canada, and when wc
j stepped into the editorial rooms of
j the Herald Wednesday of last week
' we saw uur old friend again for the
first lime in all these years. With
Mm as secretary and Mr. Young rs
president, the success of Ihe new association is assured
The promoters of the association
did a Rood stroke of business when
thev, select oil Calgary as tbe
I piece to organize the association. It
is a great town. The sifchts of the
place are Paddy Nolan, Hob Edwards
and tlie city ball. Those who have
not met either ot the gentlemen
named have lived in vain. The Lord
never created a better entertainer
than Paddy Nolan. To talk with him
an hour, or rather to sit still and
let him do the talking, will cause
any man to regret that he has never
seen Ireland. As an after dinner
speaker he is par excellence, and compared with him Ohjauneey Depew looks
like a newspaper man's promise to
pay a note of $1,000,000. It is said
that for years when a man contemplated the act ol appropriating another man's steer or horse, he first
retained the services of Paddy Nolan
For many years there has not been a
criminal case tried in lhc Northwest
Territories that Mr. Nolan has not
been retained on one side or the other. Hob Edwards is a modest individual who is engaged in editing a
Sunday school publication known as
the Eye Opener with the laudable
ambition of bringing the recreant
souls of Calgary to their milk. As
to the city hall, our appreciation of
the hospitality extended to the visitors by the people of Calgary, and
Die kind words said by Mayor Emerson, renders us dumb on this subject, and causes us to refrain from
making any comments on this wonderful specimen of architectural
The treatment extended to tbe
newspaper men is characteristic of
Calgary, and shows how the right
kind ol people can build up a metropolis on the windy prairies of Alberta. There, was nothing too good for
any or us. Breakfast seemed to lie
about the only monl that was not
provided. There was a night at the
theater as the guests of the Herald
company under the jirolectlng wine;
of Mr. Young, a business men's
lunch with the mayor of tho town
aud Chief Justice Rifton 'telling the
visitors that they were the best ever, a banquet at night as the guests
of Mr. Har.Iie, manager of the Toronto Type Foundry, of Winnipeg,
when every pencil pusher had an opportunity to throw boquets at the
publishing business, a trip to Banff
as the guests of tho C, P. R. and
Dr. Brett.  Truly it was one con-tin-
drive over tbe mountain trails to the.

We must not lose sight ot theie

When industry is accompanied by bet
business handmaiden, intemgencs.
then, something happens. We should
strive lor tbe capacity to do much
and to do it the best way; not simply ia repetition of what bias always

but to get hold of new methods and
new means in connection.
Thero Is hardly a system in use today which cannot be bettered. To
find this better way is the part—the

IT WOt l.l) 111-: DANGEROUS
Il lias been stated thai the strik.;
al the mines at Coleman i* a prel'in-
Inary movement to Inaugurate a general strike at Morrissey, Michel
an-i Coal Creek as soon as the time
of the existing contract with the
Crows Nest Coal company expire-.,
aud that tliis strike will l.e based .mi
a demand for additional concpssio-s
Irom every coal mine In Alberta attd
.British Columbia. The Herald re
lieves that the men who are engage.!
in coal mining should have, a wag"
adequate to meel the labor performed and the danger incurred, but it
trusts that the men will not act hastily in this matter. A general Strike
at this time would prove disastrous
to the country and to the men. Coal
milling is not all profit by any mean-
It lakes vast sums of money lo place
a coal mine in a position lo In* able to
pay dividends. And the capital th'W
Invested    is   giving     employment  to
thousands ol men throughout the
wesi. a strike at this time would
mean a hard blow to the mining i i-
dustry and consequently to every other line of business in the western
Country. That would mean ihat hundred- ol men in Alberta and British
Columbia would he thrown oul ot employment and their families sulTei In
consequence. There should be a way
to arrive at a just sett lenient ot
these questions without paralyzt it-,
the industries of the countries. Il is
up lo the men to move cautiously .1
there is any movement ol the k: .'I
There are many explanations behg
lor the political landslide in Ontarii.
There is only one. and that is ihe
scandals attached to the party
in power. The Herald believes
that Premier Boss is an honest
man, but it also believes that
he had around him a hunch of
barnacles that were willing
resort to any extreme measure lo
win political success. The people of
Ontario evidently thought so and demanded a, change. The* defeat of i!
Liberals does not mean that the pr.
pie are giving to the Conservatives
an unconditional recommendation for
political honesty, hut simply that by
a change they hope that the Conserv
atlVjOS, starting in with no entangle
ments, may be able to give Ontario
a government free from scandal. Tin-

At any rate nothing can take awnv
from Mr. Maclean the credit and influence gained by assuming the van in
a cause that may be popular in pr
portion to the sanity with which
may be presented.
Mr. Maclean's words were:
"When we speak of increased aut
nomy for the Northwest I am
minded that there is something to be
said of the need of greater autonomy
for the Dominion. The time has come
when ihe bounds of our powers

Questions like this should claim some

House. Mention has been made iieru
today of our Imperial relations, and
I believe a propasal will he brought
before Ihis House, dealing with thai
subject. My ideas are somewhat different front some I see in the press.
The trend of public thought, as I
read the signs of the times, is in 'he
direction of establishing a Brit 1*1
Empire made up nf free and independ
ent states under the Crown ol Eng
land, and working, not through i
great Imperial council, but through
negotiations between the government
of these free and independent states/
These observations make allusion to
motion oflered by Colonel Sam
Hughes, a Tory not un progressive,
He is so dissatisfied with the status
ol Canada, perhaps her liability, to
be dragged into wars without any
voice iu either beginning or ending
them, that he proposes a resotuttjn
favoring Imperial federation. That is
really in line with Maclean's views.

In order lo euler any federation

Great Britain. Complete autonomy,

expansion of these positions,
It is curious io liiul Americans Inclined to smile at the notion that Ihe

the future, the cry will go up with
wearisome reiteration that Canadian i
companies cannot compete against
foreign manufacturers. It would he
more true to say that Canadian water cannot compete against foreign
cash and proeressiveness. A singular
thing about this agitation for higher
duties is that it is practically directed against the British preference, and
hy the very same men who keep up
llie shout for "imperial preferential
trade." The woollen men got the net
duty laised against Great Britain
imm 2a 1-3 percent to 30 per cent,
while the duties upon goods from
other countries were not changed.
Neither will the cotton men get any
change made in the United Statts or
German duties, and iheir only hope
is to get Ihe British preference diminished, In the case of woolle-iS
however, an influential body of traders 1ms shown ihe government how
unjust and absurd in many cases has
been the effect of their concessions to
the manufacturers. It is to he hoped
a consideration of all clrcumstancas

will convini'c the government that
ihe protection thev nuw receive is adequate.

Montreal Witness: The cotton manufacturers, or, at least, some of thorn,
have made an early demand upon '.he
government for increased duties on
white cottons. The present duty
amounts to 25 pcr cent ad valorum
in the ease of the United States; to
lfi 2-3 per cent iu the case of the
Uniled Kingdom, and to 31J per eenl
in the case of Germany. Some of the
shitl and collar manufacturers are
willing to support an increase of duty on white cottons if, at Ihe same
time, the duty is increased on he
goods Ihey make. The duty on shirts
and collars is now 35 per cent in the
case of Ihe United Stales; 23 1-3 per
under the peferential tariff wiih Great
nritain, and 13; per eenl in ihe -josc
of Germany, including Ihe surtax,

on the ground that thev are not ear-

Years ago, when the cotton compn-1
nies were making large profits, they
were afraid lo declare what Ihey,

cause if they had done so they expected that the government of ihe
day would have found it necessary to
lower the duties. Public opinion
would have urgently insisted upon
such   a   reduction. To avoid any
such demand, the companies increased
their capitalization for the benefit of
the shareholders. In the case of the
