Thf Herald baa been called down for
an innocent item regarding a meeting
held at the Baptist church last week.
Inadvertently the meeting waa referred
to ua gathering of tbe Ministers Alliance, when it should have been the
Sunday Alliance. The word "spies"
was used, and iltose present claim tbat
''members of a committee" was the proper term for ibese statement!) The
Herald editor baa been told tbat the
Ministers of this town bold tbe opinion
tbat bt is epposed to any efforts on
their part to elevate tbe standard of
morality in tbiseomnwniiy orloeuforee
tbe oustrvauce of law and order, At) we
bave lo say to the ministers is that The
Herf Id was published iu Cranbrook he-
fore tticie were any ministers here, and
its editor is perfectly willing to stand
by his record aa a publisher an 1 as au
Individual aa tp his work for the town
of Crauhrook, the malntatoance of law,
and tbe upholding ofthe standard of mor
slity. We have our uptoiona and we claim
a right to them, the Name as we would
accord to auy Individual. We are not a
regular church attendant, yet, perhaps
in tbf way of contributions for the advancement of ckrtstanlty our record will
compare favorably with some of those
who ciiilcist us ao severely. No man in
Cranbrook can accuse us of being a
hypocrite. We are frank and outspoken
In our views, ao long as such fraakuesi
does not hurl tbe fee.ings of others. As
a man and as publisher we are known
during our live yeara residence tn this
community, mid when we die there Is
one epitaph we hope todeaerve; "He waa
honest, he waa sincere, and he never
was iiitemiotially unkind, and improved
every opportunity to do a good act."

6. tt. tilpia's Urge Wareboase aad
Stock Destroyed.
Magnificent    Work   of    Firemen
Saved Many Thousands of
Dollars of Loss.
Last Thursday morning between 2 and
3 o'clock, fire waa discovered in tbe
rear of G, H. Gilpin's two story warehouse, located on Armstrong avenue,
just south of his store. Tbe alarm waa
sounded, the hose wagon waa brought
out, aud valiant work done by tbe
volunteers, but the building and ita contemn were totally destroyed, involving
a loss of $i,s,i>oi) on stock and building
R A, McConnell, who sleeps in the
building, waa awakened by a choking
sensation aod finally got up and opened
the door to the rear. He waa startled
to see tbe entire back portion ol the
building In flames. Hurrying Into hia
clothes, he had just time to gather a few
personal belongings and get out, before
that part of the building waa surrounded by fire. The Chinese night cook at
the Wentworth hotel had discovered the
flames aliout this time, and a general
alarm was sounded along the main
street. Several men hastened to the
fire house, and after a desperate effort,
succeed ln getting the hose wagon
through the deep snow that had been
allowed to accumulate in front of the
fire bouse door. Tbe pounding of tbe
triangle, and the blowing* of tbe
whistles at the roundhouse and in the
railroad yards, bad aroused a large concourse of people by this time, ami there
were many willing bands to assist In the
difficult work of fighting the Ure. Thi
was only one length of hose and a single
nozzle, hence the woik bad to be con'
fined to a limited degree. To the north
aud south, separated by open spaces
only Iwentyfive feet wide, were frame
buildings. The warehouse, with its
contents of inflamablc material, made a
rapid fire of intense heat. To tbe minds
of tbe 200 people who had gathered
there could be only one result. A com*
plete wiping out of tbe business portion
of tbe town, Undaunted hy heat, un-
tering ia their efforts .displaying a courage at limes that was remarkable, the'
volunteers fought the tierce flames as if
their own lives depended upon tbe final
result of their actions. It wab aoon demonstrated that with tbe facilites at
hand, lt would be impossible to save
the building io which tbe fire originated, or any of the contents, except what
bad beeu horridly taken out of tbe front
part of the building soon after the fire
started. After that every effort was
directed toward preventing the fire
from spreading to any other building,
aud with tbe chances all against them,
tbe nohle hand performed a marvelous
piece of work and saved the town. It
was not two hours after the fire had
been discovered before it waa fully
under control, and all danger of a general conflagration passed. Yet It wu a
narrow escape, and one that the people
of Craubrook will not soon forget.
So great was the danger tbat the people In tbe immediate neighborhood got
out tbelr household good*, and Ur.
Gilpin took every dollar's worth of
stock out of his larger store and piled
lt up on tbe street. Tiiomas Rookea
and wife lived in the second story of tbe
Gilpin black, and they lost no1 time in
clearing their premises, the removal
including two pianos, A. H. Nesblt,
who lived iu tbe building immediately
to the south, got out all of hia houses
bold furniture, likewise the Inmate of
tbe Chinese laundry and the families of
Messrs Lacey anil Tunhrldge, who occupied the other apartments in tbe same
building. Dr. Barber and P. McConnell, who live across the street, got
everything ready for a quick removal.
Between four and five o'clock,tbere was
nothing left hut a smouldering ruin, aud
tke crowd dispersed to resume their
broken night's sleep. Men were left to
watch the goods and keep a (dream of
water pouring ln on the fire iu ense the
wind might rise aud tbe Dames start up
again In the ruins.
There were between $13,000 and 814,*
000 worth of goods in Ibe building, consisting, of furniture, carpets, tinware,
crockery, stoves aud agricultural implements, and canned goods and vegetables
In the cellar, Tbere will be a salvage
of aomethelng like fi.ooo.it being impossible to determine tbe full amount until
the loss has beeu adjusted. The insurance
held by Mr. Gilpin is In the shape of a
blanket policy over all tbe stock and the
warehouse building, and Is not sufficient
to cover tbe loss, which will go from
$3,000 to $4,000 over any inanrance that
will be collected
Tbe origin of tbe fire la a mystery.
Tbe greatest care bas always been taken
to prevent anything of tbe kind, and
the part-of the ware ruom, where the
fire   evidently   started bad juat   been
tboirmgtily cleaned. It Deems that the
fire must have been the work of some
wretch, who wanted to vent his spile
upon Mr.  Gilpin or tbe town.
Mr. Gilpiu Is quite a loser, In the
way nf many goods stolen by ihe dirty
dogs who took advantage of the opportunity lo take things that bad been piled
in tbe street. Tbe man wbo would do
lhat is lower than the howling coyote
who sneaks upon a wounded Animal in
the depth uf the woods and bites
into the quivering llesh of the helpless
victim. Such loathsome scum of humanity are loo low to be recognized hy lhe
spawn of inqtiily antl Ignorance. While
men were working to do what tbey could
lor a mau in misfortune-.bese contemptible pirates were giving full vent to
their thieving disposition.
Sons Pertinent Remarks on aa   Important
Qui illo a.
The fire the other day was a menace
to the safety of the eutlie business district of Cranbrook. It was a narrow
escape, and bad it not been for the
maguificent work dune by the volunteers
and the little apparatus at hand, the
town of Cranbrook would have been iu
ruins and mauy of Ibe business men
bankrupts. Not only would it have
created sad havoc among the business
element, but every man in tbe town wbo
owna a dollar's worth uf property would
have found himself poorer tbe next
morning by tbe general depreciation in
reality values. And, if there had been
better facilities for fighting fire, in all
probability tbe building that was consumed wltb most of the contents, might
bave been saved.
That fire should be a lesson.
That fire should move the people of
Cranbrook to action.
Tbat fire should be sufficient to make
every business mau and property holder
tn Cranbrook au enthusiastic worker tor
belter fire protection.
Will it do il?
Or will the danger and the narrow
escape lie forgotten?
J. P. Fink, who consented to acl as
lire chief, did 1.0 on condition tbat assistance would be freely given by the
business men when needed.
Last Thursday and Friday Mr. Fink
hauled the hoae over tbat was used and
placed lt in bia store to dry. Last Saturday be took three men from his store
and carried the hose to the fire house,
and put the wagon back. No one offered to help bim.
Naturally Jake la sore and disappoint*
ed. He dob't mind doing what he can
at fire chief, but be thinks lhat il Is
hardly a square deal lo have all the
work shouldered upon him, when everybody in the town ia interested the same
as himself.
Tbere la another bunch of bose just
received. It ban been taken to lhe fire
bouse. It is not coupled up and would
be useless in case of another fire. It is
not paid for yet. Wbo Is going to attend
to it? Wbo is going to collect tbe money
to pay for it? Who Is going to get everything in shape for the next fire?
Are things to be left undone, And the
town placed at the mercy of tbe flames,
simply because tbere is no organization,
no effort to prepare fur the next conflagration?
Cranbrook had a narrow escape.
Shall we wait until tbe town ia burned
before anything la done?
Let everybody wake up. It means
dollars to every man Interested lu Craubrook,

The Price la Loadm Is I-K-rasiig
The Kootenay Delegates Satisfied
With Their Mission
"If Canadian lead producers can ae.
cure the home market for tbe native
product und the lorelgu market rises to
£13 the Industry will be lu a position to
resume operations en tbe old basis. The
London market is rising steadily, and if
the Federal administration grants
the relief asked for the result I
have indicated will be realised," said
James Cronin, manager of tbe St Eugene
mine At Moyie, to a representative of
tbe Hossland Miner one day last week.
Mr. Cronin believes that if adequate
protection Is granted to Canadian lead
producers they will lie able to sell forty
per ceot of their output in Canada at
*3*5° per hundred, which la tbe figure
now received by American producers
from the American Smelting & Refining
company. The remaining sixty per
cent of the lead produced would be sold
in the London market, and if £12 was
the ruling quotation Canadian shippers
would net about $1 70 per hundred. The
average of the two prices would he a
figure at wh'cba large numbetof Ciua-
ilimi lead mines could operate profitably.
The London price for lead hae advanced consistently since Ibe first ofthe
year, a gain of over £1 being recorded
in that lime. The situation is improving by reason of increased consumption
and decreased production, particularly
lu tbe United States, where the
production la less than tbe
consumption, with the result tbat the
lead trust haa no surplus to ''slaughter
on Ibe Canadian market, Tbe probability Is that much of the Mexican lead
now being sold In Cms-it by Ihe American Smelling & Refining company will
eventually be with drawn to fill orders
in the United States.
Manager Cronin directs attention
afresh to tbe anomaly of the Canadian
market for lead producta being supplied
almost exclusively by white and red lead
manufactured in Germany, Belgium or
England from pig lead mined in Sicily
and other European districts where
cheap labor exists, or in the United
States from lead mined in Mexico and
corroded in bond, to the exclusion of the
home raw product. He maintaina tbat
if the administration fa to help tbe lead
industry it must comply with all tbe
provisions of tbe Sandon resolution, as
half-measures will be aa valueless as
none. In any event, however, he believes that the salvation of the lead Industry will be worked out in time, and
that things will eventually take tbe turn
which will make it possible to operate
the rich lead mluea of Canada at a profit.
In the Moyie section operations are
absolutely suspended, and the community Is devoting Its attention to lumbering, which is rapidiy attaining considerable proportions. Mr. Cronin la en route
to San Francisco and will probably remain in California for tbe next four or
Uve mouths, He has mining interests
iu Trinity country tbat will engage bis
attention white in tbe south.
Dele fates Rehire.
Most of the delegates from tbe Koote*
nays who went to Ottawa to interview
tbe government regarding a duty on
lead, passed through Cranbrook Tuesday on tbelr way home. Tbey are very
well satisfied with what tbey accomplish
ed, but trust that the Liberal aaaocit-
tions of British Columbia will take up
the mailer and pais resolutions that will
tend to strengthen the bands of the gov*
eminent iu the matter, Tbe east Is of
the opinion that the demands of British Columbia is entitled lo recognition,
aud the government is willing to concede something, but It is yet a question
as to bow much.
Mining Notes.
One of tbe promises of Mayor Dean
of Rossland during the municipal campaign was to give the' big mines tbe
wtiier power tbey want If tbey would
cease tbe boarding house system.
The mines of tbe Crow's Neat* Coal
Co. yielded last month 43,63a tons, or
an average of ahou 1,745 * day. It la,
however, expected tbat tbe yield of the
present year will aggregate a million
tons and average nearly 3,000 tons a
Frank Sentinel: Tbe coal experta
who are to examine and report upou the
Fishburne-Proctor coal property are expected to arrive next week. It Is expected tbat after their report la
made active work will be commenced upon tbls property.    Soma of
Ihe finest domestic coal yet mined iu
this section is now being taken out of
the six foot seam at this mine.
Ktsaburo Yamagucht, Ph. I), manager of famous copper mines iu Japan,
employing 20,000 miners nnd coolies,
was a guest at Grand Forks last week.
He Is looking for pointers in tbe mining
of low grade ores and naturally visited
the Boundary. He made a careful inspection of lhe Granhy smelter aod
afterwards stated that it was the moat
up-to-date reduction works be had ever
examined. The output of the Japanese
copper mines, of which he is director, is
1,500 tons monthly.
The new managing director of the Le
Roi Co. is A. J. McMillan. It is not so
many years siuce Mr. McMllllan was
agent-general In England lor Manitoba.
Then he became interested in British
Columbia mines and interested the Wa
terlows. From that lime he has never
looked back. Hitherto his connection
witb the Snowshoe in the Boundary haa
been bis most prominent work in this
province. He bought shares in the l.e
Roi and at tbe time of the Whitaker
Wright debacle was prominent among
tlitme who investigated the l.e Roi. At
the annual meeting of thai company iu
Loudon on Saturday be got the chiel
poet lu connection with ii.
It is felt tbat the successful orguni/tt-
tlon of the British Columbia Mining as-
sOciatiuu will ensure better conditions
fot the mining industry ami thereby restore confidence iu the tnagnlfictent mln*
eral resources uf this province. A further convention will tie held iu Victoria
on February 25 to finally organize. The
first thing to he done in each city and
district is to cull a meeting as promptly
aa possible of all persons interested iu
mining, and especially of the practilal
working mines, mine-owners, merchants
farmers and others whose business prosperity is affected directly or indirectly
by tbe prosperity of the mining Industry
and let each man sign the membership
roll. Each community is entitled to
send oue delegate for every twenty
members, or one delegate in the case of
a community of less than twenty members.

This story uf one of them, who oiit-
Cunadiiinud the Canadians, may be
worth recording, even though, possibly, it hafl been told in. print before.
It is of u man whose renown traveled through ull Africa, who, though
he wus but m corporal of mounted Infantry, attained u d *gree of local
fame bin Ji us some bi Igadler might
even have envied. Ii was related to
the writer by a Highland officer in
Wynburg Hospital, who, having allowed a bullet to puss clean through
hia head somewhere in that neighborhood, hud been a patient In the hospital ai Vredefort, und hail himself

a patrol to du iho job.
"Whoever it was had the sending

An incident in the life of General
Wiulleld Scott, told by himself very
rarely, well illustrates how., trifles
may change the current of events, lt
was a utile which saved his ifi-u at
what is known as tbe "Chippeway
hr oak fast." On July 4, 1814, General Scott's brigade hod been skirmishing all day with General Rlall's
forces, und hud driven the enemy
down toward the town of Chippewa,
The two armies were encamped un
both sides uf the creek.
Just at dusk a man came to General Scott wiih a message from a
ludy who lived in u large house uti
the opposite side uf the creek. She
asked that a sentinel might be placed
at the bridge tu prevent straggling
soldiers from going to her house.
Her husband wus lu Canada, she
wrote, and sho was alone with her
five children, save for the presence of
ono friend, a young lady, Word was

"Acting on the impulse of the moment, I called two of my aids und

point with proud complacency to the
une relic of ber eventful past—tho old
log houso! tbu hist dwelling in Sudbury, which at various times has
done duty as a Custom house, a C,
P, K* station, a postuthce. an insurance ottice, a sihuul house, and a
church. All th-se institutions arc
now hjused separately, and appropriately, 'Ihe old lug shack has become a mining ollice, and su the past
it linked with the industry which
largely comprises Sudbury's future
Tho town—it is u town now with
something like 2.500 Inhabitants—affects city airs* It complains thut
the C, P. it. which owns the town
site, will not put up building luts on
the market at a reasonable, or in
fact, at any price whatever. It suffers, like Toronto, from a house famine. Fashionable Slldburj has seized upon Ramsay Lake, a beautiful
suburb, near the town pumping station, and tbe house famine troul les
i uiy those wlii must live only within the tuwu limits. Also there is a
la bur famine, and one may gauge
from the advertisements of employment otliies u-nd milling companies
that there is honest work ami good
wages for live thousand nun in the
mines nn i forests around Sudbury.
Like many other towns in New Ontario, Sudbury asks why armies of
idle men Will starve In ihe city when
thoy may havo plenty und a healthful
occupation, and get railroad faro
paid right to the spot.
Mining and lumbering town Sudbury is, though she plumes herself secretly on ber Oltl Ontario aspect; but
'he sentiment of public ownership is
Western atld vigorous. The town
controls its own lighting ami watering plants, and the municipal enterprises uf the future will have tu take
that spirit Into account. Moreover,
-Sudbury has good claims to be called a railroad centre. The main lines
of the C.I'.K. passes through it; w>v-
eittl of the C.P.R. btamhs. among
them the important Sou line, converge there, and another air line is
pro.pted frum .Sudbury to Toronto;

to call at Sudbury uit the Way tu the

The question as to whether or not
Mr. 11, W. Fplger of Kingston rightfully holds office as a Commissioner
of the Teiuisknming ami Northern
Uiitat'io Railway has been raised iu
different quarters of the Province.
The claim raised was that the Kingston Commissioner had not been nn-
turajlzed in tbis country,, and though
hs was born within three-quarters of
a mile of Canada, lu New York State
he was not eligible to hold an appointment from thu Crown.
Mr. l-'olgor, wbu was talked lo
with regard to Uie charge, said
"There is a statutory provision
which very few people know about to

was raised against mo at election

ranch und rode through tlio town, ilr-
log right and left. Tbey punctured
aljins, killed several unfortunate co-
nines a-id a cut or two, und even shuttered costly plate ylass windows.
"This sort o* filing bus gut to be
stopped," said young Sheriff Holt.
No sheriff bud ever dared to Bay that
•"before. If the sheriff was lu earnest,
and those who knew bim best snltl
tbere could be no doubt of tbls, lt
meant death to either Ruyburu or himself. About the time tlie newly elected
sheriff made tbis remark be began to
call -at the achoolliouse to rehearse in
a play Miss Darley was to give for
charity. The news soon reached tbe
Jealous Rnybum. Collecting live of bis
cronies among tbe cowboys on Sunny*
side'ranch, he rode Into Lost Gulch
early one morning. He arrived early
because he wanted plenty of time and
Inspiration. That night lie repented bis
antics of a few weeks before, terror*
Icing the Inhabitants uf Lost Gulch as
tbey had never been terrorized before.
Tbe nest morning lu three distinct
public places the townsfolk gathered
to read this notice:
Whereas, Hrnjamln wiyburn, In oVd-
anca of law. has persistently disturbed
the pence and good order of Lost Gulch,
he in warned to stay oui of town or toko
the consequences. BlLAS HOLT.
Tbis hotter- Immediately divided tbo
townsfolk into two factious. Undoubtedly the better class of cltliona sided
witb Unit. Bttt there were others who
scornfully said "spite Work," ami predicted the Btlddei) demise of tlio sheriff.

It wub the night of tbe entertainment
at the flclioolbouBP,    In tbe comedy
Sheriff Unit was lu take (lie part of an
officer of the law.
The Bouoolhouno was thronged,   The
rising, ur, rather, tiie dmWtug aside, of
tbe red cambric curtain was nwaited
with interest.   At S o'clock sharp live
, cowboys from Sunnyslde ranch strode
Into tbe schnnlhuuse.     Al   ibelr   bend
was Ben It ay burn, Instantly Hi"
_) nerves of every num. woman ami child
above thu age of seven years were oil
"The reserved bench" occupied by tho
cowboys wus set against ihe wall at
the left facing the Btngu The cowboys
therefore com nut ml oil no! only n flow
of tho stage, but of the entire bouse.
There was a smile of sneering bravado
on the lips ami iu the eyes of licit Hay-
burn. Fearless, hum-try for the llglit.
thrilled with tbe excitement be loved
•hove all things In life, he sat and
wulted like some saturnine Nemesis.
Would he shoot Holt as be came Upon
tin* stage ur would be give him a chance
for his life? Tbls question agitated the
Spectators, and tbey hoped for n fair
Suddenly the curtain was drawn
aside and Sheriff Holt stepped out to
the footlights. In each hand be held a
revolver, nnd these were crossed In
front of him with tbelr muzzles pointed
upward. He was half turned toward
tbe phice where Rnybum sat. nml It
"» wus clear to the dullest eye tlmt In the
i least fraction of u second tbe revolvers
could be brought into effective action.
The'sheriff hnd plainly taken tho
first trick. While a deathlike stillness
prevailed tbe sheriff clenred bis throat
and began to speak, perhaps a trltle
"You all rend the notice that was
posted ln town and you know what It
means, Ben Rayburn knows what lt
means, but ln spite of that notice be
Is here and his gang ia with bim. I

"No you hain't, nuthcr, not by a Jug*
full" Interjected Colonel Darley, uncle
of Sclliin Darley, ss he rose In bis place
and glared ucross the room at Hay-
"lt makes no difference," continued
Unit, "Ahuic ur nut alone, wluit I said

"It's all spile wurk," h, .uted u voice
from (he rear.
"She! op," commanded Colonel Darley, rising for further remarks aud
somewhat »t n Iosb what to say.  "The

Rayburn was still grinning, but there
was a BtrnilgO glitter ill Ids eye.
"Ef you'll allow me Til like a word

"Go ahead and be quick. Your time
Is short," said Colonel Darley omliious-
"All 1 gut to say la this," Rayburn
went on, "Kf I ever done uuytldng

Then he sat down.
"I tell you It's all a piece of spite,*1
broke In again thc sharp nnd Jarring
voice from the back of the room. It
was Tom Stoker, ibe blacksmith, wbo
had led tbe lynching six mouths before
when a negro wub burned tit tbe stake.
"You all know, or all oughter know,
what the cause of thiB hynr rumpus la,"
be continued. "It's over a gnl and I
don't think as bow we're called on to

This eloquent and uncouth appeal
aroused m faint murmur of approval.
The excitement now wns at boiling
point. The wrong word said and tbe
shooting would begin. Already tbe women were crowding toward tbe door,
dragging the little ones after them In
unceremonious fashion.
It was at this tragic moment that a
young man, graceful, with blue eyes
mid blond hair, arose well to tbe front
and walked toward tbe stage, leaping
lightly upon it. It was Mark Kelsey,
owner of the Sleepy Eye mine.
"Ladles aud gentlemen," tic suld, "I
entirely ugree with tbe sheriff lu tbls
matter.   So far as I nm acquainted
With  the  circumstances,  there  Is  no

Miss Darley. Today 1 asked her to be

I honor to consent.  I wish to announce
I the engagement now aud to say that

,     Pour   men,   all   miners   from   the
J Sleepy Eye, gave a cheer and rushed
j forward  to the stage.   At  the same
I time Rayburn drew his revolver, but lt
was twirled from bis hand.   Whether
It was a bullet from the sheriff's revolver or from K el soy's no one knew,
but Rayburn's band fell shattered to
his  side.    Ills  cronies  dropped   back
upon the bench.
"No use ligliiin' fer nutblu*," said
one. "Rayburn lied to us."
Then lhe sheriff did bis whole duty
with firmness and dignity. The offenders were placed under arrest and es-
curled to the Jail, and, as Mark Kelsey
bad predicted, the pi-iy went ou.

their lender in another attempt to

galleries and lobbies, aud, fearing
bloodshed, tbe crowds were addressed
and a truce was called.
Admirers of the two statesmen
whose statues grace Queen's Park,
Sir John A. Macdonald and Hen
George Brown, will recall with interest tlie memorable attack of the former on the latter during tliu sessions
of 1880*9, which culminated in a
rhargo of "falsifying testimony and
suborning witnesses" in connection
with un investigation concerning
Kingston penitentiary, The charge
was ultimately proved unfounded, but
the perm n tl hostility between the
two leaders never fully died out.
I In 1858 came the "double shuffle"
which was characterized by the usual
displays of hitter party feeling. The
want of confidence motion in the
Brown-Dor ion Administration was
fiercely debuted till midnight, when
the tno days old Cabinet was defeated.

well drnlned, though, by tbe collectors'
ruling passion.
Suddenly be picked up a book eagerly, blew ott the dust and poked his
nose between the yellow leaves. A
young uinn, himself a lover of old
books, who bail been watching tlie old
fellow with Interest and a certain literary nffeetlon, asked almost timidly,
"Have you made a IhidV"

Aa l!iinordinary Story.
A story, which, if true, throws a
new light ou recent political events, i*.
going tbe rounds ol the eastern pres**.
It Is to the effect that all the details for
the Grand Trunk 1'aeilic scheme have
already been arranged, and tbat lhe
company will be aided by the government to the extent of taMHiii.ixjii, besides a substantial land grunt. It is
claimed, moreover that it was really owing to this deal that Mr. Tarte resigned
his portfolio, owing lo friction between
himself aud his colleagues. Mr. Tarte
protested against this enormous expenditure of public money un the ground
that it would be used to lake ttade from
a Canadian to a foreign port.
The recent utterances ol the ex Minister of Puhlic Works, whose watchword
is''Canada for the Canadians," would
seem to corroborate tbe story and to
clear the way for a big fight with his
late colleagues In the near future.
