Forget Canada's Loyalty.
London, Jon. 9.—Sir John Coloinb
M. P., replies in tbe Times today to Sir
Clmrles Tapper's attack upon him because he opposed the Pacific cable ii.
which he says he will oppose all Canadian demands on the pockets of the
British people for large cash contributions or guarantees so long as Canadian
statesmen fence, and the Dominion
neither pays nor guarantees a brass
farthing toward the maintenance of tbe
1 British war fleet.
on tbe government why the concessions
asked for by the Dunsmuir government
should he granted.
"In regard to Oriental immigration
I may say that the government la strong
ly opposed lu lhe it flux of this (lass.
Tne dominion government bas disallowed lhe acts passed lam season, but 1 Intend to have them re enacted as soon as
the linn-.'- meets, lo show tbat tbe people
nl British Columbia are in dead earnest
on this question "
When Colonel Prior was asked if lhe
gnvrriimeut would be sustained, be replied: "It will be. We have a decided
uujority."
IT IS A CO THIS MELT "d ,he l0*"s " ""
HOCKEY MEETING
"I am not in f.ivo- of the 2 per cent
minim,, lax The actual Htliouud col
lected is not material, but l| b*-ars unfairly 011 low grade ores in comparison
to high grade ores, and the sentiment
nf Ihe investing public is against it. Tbe
system of luxation on mining development will have tu be attended to and
revised before British Columbia can
gain the confidence of Investors. 1 intend to see that it Is revised at once."
The foregoing statement is credited
to premier Prior in an interview with
a Vancouver press representative on
Monday last. He is further reported as
having said:
"Tbe time has come when tbe government's ordinary expenditures should
be kept within the revenue. I do not
tbink the province should float any
more loans except for specific purposes,
such as railway development.
I believe tbe finance minister ia doing quite right in trying lo gel In all
taxes In arrears. It is not fair that one
should pay and another should get out
of paying taxes.
In regard lo the West Yale constituency, the government never bad any
intention of leaving West Yale unrepresented at tbe next session of the house.
They never bad any idea but stltuency
before the house sits.
Regarding the railway policy, I
Brmly believe It Is ibe boimden duty of
tbe government lo formulate a railway
policy. No country like British Columbia can he developed without being
opened up hy railways and it is the
policy of the government to develop the
province by railroad building. The government Will assist railroads where necessary. If assistance is given, however,
it will, I hnpe, take the fort:, nf land
subsidies under such restrictions and
conditions ns will promote settlement
and development. I believe tbat a line
of railway from Vancouver to the north
would be a laudable enterprise aud well
worthy nf assistance. I also believe we
should have another transcontinental
line from the Rocktesdown to the Coast.
I believe tbat such a railway should
come through Cariboo, then down to
Bute inlet and across to the island, thus
passing through tbe lower portion ol
the prtvince, where tbe population is
more thickly distributed. I do not approve of giving assistance to the scheme
to run tbe railway to Port Simpson,
thus building up a rival city to Vancouver, Victoria and other coast cities.
What is wanted is a line of more immediate advantage to the present centres
of population. I think a great deal
could be done In tlie way of developing
tbe resources of this province by the
construction of narrow gunge railways
as feeders for tbe main lines. Tbe
Coast*Kootenay road is also a grave
necessity antl must be built, as well as
some othe-r roads in the Interior,
Regurding the reqiest made ofthe
government by men aud companies interested in deep placer nml hydianilc
mining that placer, mid hydraulic claims
be crown granted, I will say tbat it is a
dfliicult problem to deal with. Tnere
is opposition to tbe scheme hy many
Individual placer miners. I can say,
however, that some alterations will be
made in the act providing for belter
titles to such land at present.
"Ar* lo immigration, I believe tbere
ibniild be a general scheme of survey
of unoccupied government laud, ao that
when intending settlers present themselves or write for in bu ination regarding desirable locations, the government
may be able to iiilorm them as lo local
conditions, extent and topography of
each section of the province wliere
settlement \n desirable, the nature of the
soil, possibilities nf livlihnod nnd conditions prevailing as in trauspoitattuii.
It would be an expensive undertaking,
but it Is very desirable to bave the lands
ofthe province taken up by good settlers
and tbe expenditure would well repay
the province Ol course, tbe scheme
would have to lie carried out gradually.
'■Regaidiug the unfair terms giveu
British Columbia by tbe dominion gov
ernuient, I am going to Ottawa to talk
the matter over with Premier Laurier
and his colleagues. Owing to our extent of territory and the inaccessibility
in many regions, the cost of administration in British Columbia is very
heavy, nnd as is Veil known, we pay
Jz.ooo.ooo more anuunlly into the dominion treasury than we get back. Tbe
Dunsmuir government issued a pamphlet to the dominion government giving
the reasons why British Columbia should
get more reasonable terras I intend during my stay in Ottawa to further impress

Of the present members of tbe legislature the Victoria Colonist gives seventeen to the government and an equal
number tn the opposition, while It classifies three ns doubtful. The list is as
follows:
Government.

Hnyward, Hunter, Dickie, Moitnce,
W. A. Smith, Clifford, Rogers, Kllisou,

Gilford.—17,
Doubtful.
Neill, Stables, Houston.—3.
Of the doubtful members Mr. Nell) is
believed to be more likely to throw in
hia lot with tbe opposition and Mi. Stables, although recently a supporter of
Mr. Joseph Martin, Is thought to be inclined lo give his adherence to the government. The third doubtful member,
Mr. Houston, iB also believed to be a
supporter ot tbe government, which, according to this classification, would
have a majority of one in tbe legislature.
If a member of the government party be
elected speaker lbs ordinary voting
strength of tbe government ami opposition would be equal and the government
would depend upon the casting vote of
the speaker to secure the parage of opposed legislation. In addition to the
present members of the legislature the
seal of West Vale is vacant. The goveriiinent hesitates to fill Hie seat aud its
ch-iiice of carrying the constituency is
not considered bright. In case of an
eh etion ihe result would eitber give the
opposition a uiaj.uitv of one iu the legislature, exclusive of lhe speaker, or
would give that majority to tbe government.

Hardly a day goes by without Tbe
Herald being asked something regaidiug Ibe proposed Marysville Mueller,
Many people have predicted that nothing note would be done to lhe plant,
and that Ibe half constructed buildings
would stand as a monument to tbe
fonlhardiness of the company that projected them. There were others, again,
who have telt ctiufidetil tbat work would
be resumed ns soon as spdug opened.
As a matter of fact, there never has
beeu a question as to tbe lesutuptlon of
the work. It was simply a question nf
the manner of raising the necessity
funds. Some mistakes had been made
iu the past, but (bat was not lo prevent
the accomplishment of the original idea,
the building of a smelter to treat tbe
ores of the Sullivan mine.
The following from tbe Spokane
Sp lkt'sinau-Revii-w will make good
rending for tbe people of South Kasl
Kootenny:
I'iiinticial arrangement* -are being
made (o pmviile finim-ii tocarry forward
the building of ibe Sullivan smelter at
Marysville, 11. C, and to provide it with
working capital. The work of reconstructing lhe plant will begin early tn
the spring and should he finished in
three months.
Sjnator George Turner, who is heavily
interested 111 the Sullivan Group Mining
company, has taken the matter np since
going east, and bus been in conference
with the Toledo men who have been
hacking the company. It wae first estimated tbat about $50-000 should be raited, of which $40,000 would need be
spent in construction. It is now planned
to raise 8100,000 and give a working
capital of $60,000. Tbe money will probably be raised on the security of mortgage bonds Issued by the company
The plant bas a nominal capacity
of 100 tons, but lit actaal
capacity is expected to be nearer 130
tons a day. Construction on it was
started over a year ago, hut tbere hsve
been a series of difficulties and delays
ever since.
It is expected tbat Spokane stockholders, Including Senator Turner, Major J.
M.Armstrong, L F. Williams, E. D.
Sanders and J. C. Williams, will take
half of the bond issue.
Prospector: Chsrles Chapman, with a
small force is now engaged in working
old-time diggings ou Fiulay creek; having ample supplies 10 last until April,
nothing will be beard from them until
be cumes out In the spring.
Tbe output of the Crows Nest Past
coal mines for December was 43,631
taus, an average »r abnul 1,74s daily. It
Is estimated thut the output Iur 1 </>,-; will
reach a total of 1,000,000 tons, a daily
production of about 5,$<»i tons.
James I.aidlaw was killed at tbe
Boundary Falls smelter lust S-ituulay by
being caught on a belt and pulled over
Ihe wheel. The body continued lo turn
around with tbe wheel for a half hour or
more liefore it was discovered.
At the present lime there are close to
eight hundred men employed in Rossland mines. The I.eKoi Has }tx> employees, Ibe War li-igle and Centre Star
mines 313, tbe Kootenuv 40, Hie Joiie 51),
Ibe White Bear 15, Uie Velvet 20.
Tbe Slocan Star has put a new rule
lu force stopping all Sunday wotk at
Ibe mine. Hereafter the Star will be
operated ona sU-day week. The change
cuts down the cheques flu a month but,
aa many of tbe men live lu town the
day's rest will be appreciated.
Prospector: Mr. Robert Dure, owner
of lhe Grace Dore nickel pinpeilv,
which was recently l-oiidcd to eastern
Canadian parties, received a small lirst
payment on the bond Monday. Tbe
total amount of lhe bond Is $30,000 The
property is situated on Wild Hoise
creek, three miles from Porl Steele.
On Sunday of lust week (be previous
big record for one days shipment of ore
was beaten. This lime jt cars uf ore, nr
about 1,200 tons, were sent down to  the
leller within lhe : 1 hours. This is
believed to be Ibe best record of tbls
kind in a single day by nuy camp in
Biiti-b Columbia and ■ 1 <- A-. well for the
Phoenix mine.
Senator-elect O'Neill, of Wallace.
Idaho, will introduce a bill in the commie session of the legislature of lhe state
providing for the taxation nf the mines
baaed on their net output. This lav
haa been in effect in Montana for a
number of years, and is giving entire
satiafaction to everybody. It Is a just
and rcaaonable solution to a very knotty
question, and it is to be hoped tbat
Idaho will adopt it as a means of assessing the mining industry.
It is impossible as yet to predict tbe
copper output for lsst year for Montana.
However it Is certain that the value will
fall several millions short of 1901. This
Is not due to ontput, but rattier to Ihe
price for which the copper was sold. In
tonnsge 1902 will rank with any of tbe
past. Tbe decline in silver will also
reduce the value of the oufput, as tbe
copper mines of Butte are large producers of silver. It csn be safely estimated
that tbe daily output of the Butte mines
Is fully [3,000 tons.
Crssbrook Is Lite.
The following is a copy of tbe reiolu
tion passed by the Cranbrook board of
trade on January 7th 1903
Whereas, owing lo ibe fall in price of
lead, and tbe consequent stagnation lo
tbe silver-lead Industry. The commercial interests of this district bave bean
very seriously affected; and.
Whereas, great hardship has been
thereby done to the commercial interests of this town, it being Ihe centre of
lhe silver-lead mining district of F;ast
Kootenay; and.
Whereas, as a consequence of the depression in thiB district, the Northwest
Territories have been losing, and will
continue to lose a very profitable market
for its products; mid.
Whereas, It is tbe opinion of tbis
meeting that a protective tariff un imported lead is essential to tbe life of the
silver-lead industry in Canada; and.
Whereas, the resolution of tbe
silver-lead raineownera in convention
assembled at Sandon, B. C, on December mib, 1902, bas been read and discussed ai this meeting and is approved;
now.
Therefore, be It resolved that tbls
board do unanimously endorse lhe said
resolution passed at Saudon, B C, and
that the secretary write to lhe member
for this district requesting bim lo as
strongly ns possible urge tbat effect shall
be giveu to tlie request of the silver-
lead mine owners as contained in tb<
said resolution, and that a copy of this
resolution be forwarded to the said
member.
MINING NOTES.
Last week a fire did some damage at

While in Quebec during tbe conference of the provincial premiers, Mr. D.
D. Mann was Interviewed by a representative of tbe Chronicle, and the railway magnate made a number of statements which are of particular interest
tothe west- Iu denying the rumor tbat
tbe C. N. R. would he merged wilb the
Grand Trunk, Mr. Mann said:
"It Is true that a certain gentleman
with a small interest io our undertaking
ba* been trying to gel Mr. Mackenzie
and myself to meet the Gtattd Tiunk
people *,o talk the matter over, but our
minds are made up. We will have nothing to do with the Grand Trunx people,
and what is more, have no need.
We control 85 per cent, of the

and mean to hold on to our properly and
manage tbe railway ourselves. We have
over l.'-Joo miles of road Onishednnd running, and shortly will have boo miles
more completed and running. We now
are making a large profit, having ■* surplus uf over $600,000 per year over tbe

If we are receiving such returns In tbe
Infancy of the mail ynu can form your

Ibe country settled and dtveloperi

readily understand that Ibe Grand

to pay us In return for uur property,
and even if Ihey bad we have no desire

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
A.   L.   Sifton   has   been appointed
supreme   -justice     iu   tbe Noriliwesl
Territories.      Il   Is   handy to have  a
brother tu thc cabinet.
Chris. Foley Is an Independent can
dldate for tbe Dominion parliament In
Burrard district. Chili. Is after tbe
Orientals, and says only an Independent
member can drive them out. He will
know more after the three-cornered
election.    His candidacy Is spite work.
The gorgeous display of wealth at the
recent exercises In India bungs to many
minds on Ibe Aiuciic.au continent tbe
gifts of grain to the starving millions
of lhat country a short lime ago.
Many of tbe millions spent ln display
would have been better as a charity
fund for the starved masses of that
country,
Premier Prior says, "I will do bo and
ao." It Is evident tbat he figures on being tbe whole thing at the cHtilng session.
Premier Prior says he Is opposed to
tbe building of any more large cities In
tbe province for fear they might Injure
Vancouver or Victoria. It iB to be presumed then, that he is premier of Vancouver and Victoria and not of the
province. The Herald said al the start
that he was a small man In a big office.
and every lime the premier opens his
tuouib he gives evidence of this fact.
How lorg will the present government maintain the government «nice**
In an Important district at the only
town in tbe district without a railroad?
That Is ibe situation ln (Cast Kootenay
at the present time,
If some of tbe money ustd by the present government galvantlng around the
couniry on political matters was put In
bridges In South Bast Kootenay li
would go a long way toward developing
lhe couniry,
Tbe Lord loves his own, Look how
tbe lumbermen bave been favored tbls

The C. V H. tightened up the trans'
poriaiiou business with the weekly
newspaper again this year. And when
it comes to enlisting the sympathy of
the newspaper In tbe cry of "Canada
for Canadians" to keep out an opposl
lion railroad and maintain high rates,
they will send Joe. Carter around with
bis sunny smile and expect to catch
•very sucker that owns a newspaper.
Tbe C. P. It. pension scheme Is about
like tbe Uulted States steel trust's plan
to get tbelr workmen to buy stocks, Ii
Is a clncb for tbe company.
The Winnipeg Telegram says tbat In
tbe absence of pauy government the
members of the British Columbia Legislature are split Into various groups
which render a stable and strong government a remote possibility.
Vancouver World: At last New Brunswick appeers to be coming io the same
conclusion that British Columbia has
reached; that stability and security in
provincial politics cannot be secured
until a definite division by party lines is
adopted and insisted upon by the people, ft Is tic government in New
Brunswick which leads the way in reform. The government in British Columbia dare not.
Do You Take The Herald?

the other hud u i-use which would not
bear stating in any court in which
decisions were founded upon plain
principles ui just P. e and common
sense.
Tbe reason why many people hesitate about courts of conciliation und
arbitration is that they find it ditti-
cult to break the bunds of red tape,
tradition und prejudice. It i'i bard
for thom tu conceive uf a. court in'
which  they muy  nut  bu defeated    by
some, technicality, or by the superior
cleverness uf un advocate, ui* by the
lung purse of an opponent. Perhaps
evon in so-called arbitrations they
have been worsted by s ich means,
Hut the spirit of arbitration or conciliation in labor disputes is entirely
different from ibis. It means simply
that the parties nre tu comb together, tu lay aside all considerations of
superior force or cleverness, and simply to say about each proposition us
It comes up: "Is it (air? Is it reasonable?" In wars, in law suits, lu
games, in elections, in debutes |u
Parliament, even In private controversies, we liute nil before our minds

tho end of each We ask: "Wbu bus

equally foolish to full to re.'ogntze
thut it forms one of the main obstacles tu the fair settlement uf labor disputes,
Tiie remedy, as it seems to us, Is
not tu ignore the fighting Instinct
tiiut is intuitu in the meekest of men.
but tu remember that all the struggles In which they may engage are
subsidiary tu the buttle of life—the
man's endeavor to gain for himself
nnd those who are dear to bim not
only fund und shelter uud rluthing.
but the free growth and development
Of ovary  human faculty.    There is no
reason why the workman should not
sympathize with the large plans of
the capitalist—not the mere money-
grubber, but the genuine captain of
Industry, But that Involves a cor-
respunding obligation  on  the part of
the emi'luyer—u, genuine liiuiiuti sympathy with tiie plans of thu artisan,
his ambitions fur himself and his
family, bis desire that they should
reach the highest place tu which they
are entitled by ability una; character,
Some employers, dimly perceiving
tbls ubllgutiun, estubiish bulls, places
of amusement, e'tc., fur their workmen. The object is good, but the
best  means of attuiuliig it  is simple
fair play—the payment of fair wages.
The object uf arbitration ami conciliation is tu bring men togctbnr un
thut basis. One is to strive not to
win un advantage over tbe other by
force or cunning, but to show thut
his claim is full- und reasonable,
There is nothing visionary in this.
It happens every day iu discussions
between reasonable men, In such discussions it often happens thut some*
thing is said which strikes home to
a muii's reason or conscience. In
the beat of argument he muy not admit It; he mny search about fur soma
plausible utiHWer; but if he Is a man
of bruins uud limirt and bowels uf
compassion, be will sooner ur later
yield to the appeal. That Is what 1b
meant by arbitration and conciliation. It is not a cunning, cut-nnd.
dried device, to be substituted for
strikes and litigation It Is simply
a means of bringing men together
wltb their best side uppermost, in a
spirit uf good-temper, justice and
reasonableness.

lirst visit tu that island, it was in
the early seventies. My business at
thut time necessitated a visit tu the
Margaree Valley, and oh! what delightful visions and pleasant remembrances of that visit still linger in
my memory 1 It was a day in the
latter part of June that 1 arrived
there, The wide meadow-lands were
luxuriantly clothed with their rich
natural productions; tho hillside
(arms were neatly tilled; the orchards
were in bloom; the high mountains
which stand In tho background and
serve us a sort of bulwark were covered with the most beautiful groves

strike mv Ideal fancies. It wus the
prettiest rural sight that I have ever
seen- The Margaree Hiver is the
must famous salmon Ashing streum

about the 1st of June, and contihues
until tbe last of August. In thus*
days of which 1 speak I repeatedly
saw the salmon—meraglng -Q lbs.

morning, and it was u common occurrence, and nut noteworthy, for un
ordinary angler to take six or seven
salmon daily. At thut time ihe of-
flcers ot the standing army at Hall-

Anoioat Waathar Statistics.
Tha Upper Canada Medical Journal
fur April contains some statistics of
the temperature uf Toronto during
the lust 24 years, very interesting
to those who love to speculate on
tlie weather. There are very few
old residents of Canada who do nut
believe that tbe climate is gradually
becoming milder. Tbey will generally tell you that there are Uo such
winters now us twenty years ago
The season which has just closed rather startled these believers in the
improvement of tho uge, fur an intensity of cold und length of duration it was ub distinguished us

oi famous men ot the age in the history of modern scientific development, four greut epoch-making events
may be recorded — the perfecting uf
the electric light, the laying of the
Atlantic cable, the Inventing of the
telephone, und the discovery of the
Roentgen rays. To these niny be
added a fifth, thut represented by
Marconi's exploit last week, mid this
Ik undoubtedly the most wonderful of
them all, for no mute extraordinary
conception hus ever yet had its birth
from the mind of the most imaginative novelist than this seemingly incredible feut of transmitting intelligible signuls over 2.1IU0 miles of
rtpace, without wire or cable ur any
other visible or tangible ugetu-y
whatever.
The story of his early experiments
and gradual success in the matter of
wireless telegraphy is un oft-tuld
tale. A special correspondent of The
(J lobe takes up the parable where,
having accomplished everything that
was possible within the limited ocean
areas which separate the British isles
from the European continent, this
scientific Alexander tinned in search
oi new worlds to conquer, To n genius of his tratiscendant ability,
boundless energy and ull-eiubiucing
capacity the prospect of eventually
spanning the Atlantic und linking
together the two hemispheres by Ins
electric waves must have been ever
the dream of his life, the ambition
which spurred him on to attain
comparatively great things uud to
attempt even greater When his experiments between England and
France were shown to be u complete
success, and the llritisli Admiralty
had set Us seal of approval upon
ths system hy Installing it upon several Warships, he induced hit
company to establish a large power
plant at Poldhu, Cornwall, for still
more important tests. As compared
with    his ordinary stations, located
around the llritisli coasts, and used
mainly for murine purposes, this
Poldhu depot possessed powers about
uue hundred times greater.
The Mat-titsarr I aad.
It consists of ihe buildings wherein
the generutors ami Instruments aie
stored In *Jn inasis. each BIO feet
high, supporting aerial wires. Hint so
connected us to form n gigantic conductor by means ol which the volume uf electricity produced iu the
generator is forced through the wires
und projected Into spice, causing the
oscillations of other waves, which
rudluie through the atliinspliPre, traveling outwards in overy direction
to ihe uttermost cuds ol tin- earth.
Poldhu station was bulll some eight
months ago. hut was portly blown
down In the bin gale which swept
the English nmmiei m September,
m>d if not yet completely    restored
Hut  It   proved  sullMi-iitl**,   eflcctlve   to
enable Mr Marconi, in Octoboi and
November,  to oxperlineul       having
great   things in view    With tlioll   most
distant station, that at Orookhaven
ou the coast of Irolftnd 996 miles
away     While he was receiving    men
sages at   thi  latter poat,  be observed
thut the strength ut the signals
which were recorded was very great.
■u much su, Indeed, that his long ex
petteine  tn  the subject  enuMed    him
to conclude that thoy would manifest an observable activity at a distance ten times us im As it was Imperative thut it sueh a result was
obtainable the facts should ha dotor-
tiiiued «t soon as poSllblo, Mr Mar-
cold determined to take slni* at the
surliest convenient date for New-
liiuiidiand. ihe nearest part of the
western hemisphere t<> tin* Drltlah
coast, and therefore the natural one
fi(jiu which tu make tin- requisite observations As the momentous slep
he was taking represented such uu
amazing extension of the existing
scope of the system, he wisely decided to keep secret the real object ot
tie tulsulon to the colony,
koaiuat far lavracr,
He shrewdly reasoned that, If ha
stated his purpose beforehand and
failed, the world would discredit Ids
Invention in its modest form, while
if he failed now, he would try again
inter, and If he succeedod his success
would be all the greater from coming upon the world so unexpected\yf
Fortunately for him a Ingltiimite reason for his visiting Newfoundland existed in the fact that he was interested tn the possibility of signalling
the Cunard liners traversing the
ocean beyond thu Orund Banks, 400
niiliis from that const, and he announced his Intention of undertaking
experiments looking to thut object,
* sufficiently ambitious one in tha
minds of the public, seeing that It
represented doubling his previous attainments. He left England on Nov.
36th on the Allan liner Sardinian,
and arrived at St. John's on Friday,
Dec. dtik He wus accompanied by his
two assistants, Messrs. Kemp and
one' they brought with them
all requisite apparatus and alee two
balloons and six kites, for the pur-
pOSS of elevating their aerial wires,
so that thu signals, diffused through
the ether, might be caught in passing
aud recorded on his inst rumen ts lo
cated in some suitable building at
the base ul the wire.
On   arriving,   ami   before   beginning
operations, he waited upou the Governor, Mir Cavendish Iloyle. the Pre

him  the hearty CO-opui'UtloU    ot   the

Mr. Marconi, for the purposes Immediately iu view, did not require a
permanent station at this point, his
equipment of balloons and kites being regarded as adequate, seeing that
he could always fall buck upon the
erection of u high mast or stall, the
appliance with which the public have
become most familiar in connection
with his work. Accordingly, on
Monday, December y, be and his
aides began their tabors on Signal
Hill. Uy Wednesday they had in-
lluted their balloon, and it made its
first ascent, only to break clear after
a short while and drift away to parts
unknown. It wus a ballouii 14 feet
in diameter, and with a cubic capacity of 1,400 feet, charged wllh
hydrogen gas aud designed to uphold the "aerial," which weighed
about ten pounds, besides a slay to
hold lhe sphere comparatively motionless. Ou Thursduy he succeeded
iu elevating one uf his kites to a
height of 4UO feet, it keeping the
"aerial" iu position, and by this
means he was fortunate in being able
to receive the tnins-in*t-aiiic signals,
which have annihilated space and
made the abandonment of the submarine cable us certain as lhat the
electric light has superseded the tallow candle. In order lhat readers
mny understand how it wns done 1
must explain that Mr. Marconi before leaving England prepared a series of Instructions for the guidance
of the chief electrician at Poldhu Hta-
tion, Cornwall, Mr. Marconi was
kind enough to show me his press-
ropled duplicates of these Instructions of his official letter-book, They
Intimated thut, after bis arrival in
St., -John's, he would wire a certain
dale (as, Tuesday. December UM. to
the Poldhu operator, who was every
day after receipt uf this cablegram
enjoined    to    make the signal  "S"
(Which tetter is represented in the
Moras cods by three dots, thus . . ,),
at regular Intervals daily during the
hours uf 9 to A p tn . Greenwich
lime, until ordered tu desist. The
hours given were in local time at
St John's II 80 n m lo li Hn p. m.,
the most convenient period for winking at St, John's, and Mr Marconi's idea was lhat If bis theories
us to the force of the electric waves
were correct, he would be ahle to
receive distinct ami effective signals
ut  his base at  tins place
lha Greet:   Hay •' Trial.
On Thursday at t'J :»-i o'clock
great   idea   was  transmit led  uiU
nssurod fact.    Mr   Marconi at
liiMrumcnt   in   lhe  old  hospital
reived ths expected signals.
in view of the Importance ot
that  was al  stake, he dei
trust   to the automatic recorder
to use u  telephone attached lo
coherer instead,    Tor ordinary work
a  recorder  is  used   mi  instrument  in
connection   wiih   which a tape    Is
Worked,   lhe   dots   end   dashes     being
printed thereon The human ear is,
however, Infinitely mure sensitive
than the recorder, and therefore the
inventor chose it  U  his  medium   for
die     reception of the all-Important
signals
Thoy were Qlllte audible to himself
and his assistant, Mr Kemp, who
also noted them The two observers
were at the Instrument at different
times, and the signals clicked along
ul Irregular intervals during thres
■ninnies They Were again noted at
1  10 p in., aud at 2 30.    They    came
lu a great number uf the conventional formula, which he had instructed
lo be bent, Were distinct and unmistakable, and were received about
twenty-five times altogether.
On Friday again, at 1.80 p m.,
Ihey were repented, hut were less
distinct and nut renewed after a
brief period, Mr. Mureoni's conclusion being thut the kites, which
worked badly, prevented the records
being mude with the sume distinctness und regularity us on Tuesday,
jiattti'da?'• «ttaa*at Fella*.
On Saturday a further attempt was
mude to obtain a repetition of the
signals, but it wus unsuccessful, owing to adverse weather conditions, it
being found impossible to elevate the
"kites, of which no less than three
were smashed hy falling to the earth.
Ue thereupon decided to discontinue
the experiments until he could erect
a pole 2(10 feet high on Signal Hill,
or at some other point which possessed the requisite facilities, so
that he would thus be rendered Independent of wind or weather. Another
advantage with the pole would
be that he could use a heavier wire,
as With a kite, elevated 41)0 feet,
the wire must necessarily be slight,
while that suspended from a mast
being stouter, would form a better
conductor for the electric waves.
After Thursday's experiment Mr.
Marconi wired his company ln   Lon-
, don of his success, and invited    ns
lhe
Ins
ot  to

Workmen engaged on the building
of an extension in the premises of
Messrs. Evans and Sons, wholesale druggists, St. Jeun Baptiste
street, we. e afforded a view of a
portion of old Montreal the other
day. In tearing down a building on
St. Gabriel street, they came across
two large vaults or passage ways,
extending right down the street.
On examination they found that
they _yx* built of masonry, several
feet thfck, and were covered by a
roof of solid" stonework. They were
provided with holes tor stove pipes,
nml every portion was in a perfect
Mute of preservation,
The spot is known by historians as
old Quebec, and was the centre of the
settlement at the time the Hudson
Buy and Great North-Western Fur
companies hrfd stations in Montreal.
Bight along the western side of St.
Gabriel street there are a large
number of cellars joined together by
passage*?, ft is believed that the
Norih:W>stern Company had its
storerooms situated there. The Idea
in building the cellars so solidly was
for protection in case of fire. Later
on, when Montreal had become a
commercial town, and warehouses
were being erected, oftentimes they
were built on the foundations of
these old buildings and sometimes
right on top of them, as was the
case wiih the building at present being pulled down.
The long passages found across the
streets, which have oftentimes been
spoken of with a good deal of mystery, were undoubtedly from the convent on St. .loan Baptiste street to
some of the outhouses, Before any
streets were opened up. the mnis hud
a very large pteco of property.    As
ihey were a cloistered order at the
lime, (he passageways were built
Under the streets in order that the
nuns should nut be obliged to appear in public. In tliis way a long
passageway whs constructed under
St, Paul street to a gulden situated
on the liver front, aud another Westward under St. Sulpice street into
"Voire Maine church, iu order thut
ihe nuns might attend the different
services. The only buildings in the
city built in the solid old French
Style are those occupied b.v the An-
tuitiariun Society, on Noire Dame
