Maikjubtte, Mioh., Fob. 17. —
Last night tt copper train of 30 ours
on the Duluth and South Shore railroad got out of control of the men
at the Prince mine, five miles above
this city, and came thundering down
the heavy grade at a rate of over a
mile a minute. The shrieks of the
locomotive whistle caused thousands
to run out of doors. Four minuted
after the engineer blew the first signal that the main track must be left
clear for him to make the run
through the city or go into Lake
Superior, ' the train came down
through the yards. The big Mogul
engine kept up its shrieks and uie
rush of the cars shook the earth,
while the train seemed a sheet of
flame from the fire caused by the
friction of tho brakes. Nine cars
of heavy timber were in the train,
and at the third crossing tho timber began to fly, and shot through
the air like lightning. Buildings
wore demolished and cars thrown
from the track in every direction,
Three cars held to the engine, and
dragged a fourth with the timber
caught under tbe wheels. The engine stopped 200 feet from a sharp
curve, and had it reached that point
it would surely have been thrown
into the lako. For three blocks timbers and ear trucks and cars are
scattered. Two streets are blockaded. The engineer and fireman
stuck to their posts. The conductor
and brakesmen cut loose the caboose
Ttirouiih British ClustU to CblM.
St. Paui, Feb. 18.—The Pioneer-
Press says: "There are certain capitalists and railway magnates in St.
Paul, Minneapolis and Chicago who
have been looking very wise and
mysterious for the last year or two.
Every now and then one of them
has exclaimed, as if utter silence
was offensive and the load of a great
secret was praying npon him: "Just
you wait. Before many months you
will hear of a railway project that
will startle the world. Then ho
has lapsed into a cavern of silence
from which seven yoke of oxen
could not draw him out, This stupendous scheme has at length been
discovered. It is nothing more nor
less than a railway from the Twin
Cities via Bismarck, British Columbia and Alaska to Pekin, China, and
Irkoutsk in the Russian empire.
Tho Minneapolis .t Pacific, Aberdeen, Bismarck it Northwestern and
the Canadian Paoific will carry the
road to Victoria. Thence a line
will be built lo Cape Prince of Wales
on Behring's strait, a distance of
about 1,100 miles. This body of
water, separating the American
continent from Asia, is but thirty-
five miles wide and midway is dotted with islands. The water is only
twenty or twenty-five fathoms deep
and can ultimately be bridged,
though temporarily a crossing will
bo made in bouts. On the opposite
side in Asia is East Cape, from
whence a road will be constructed
to Pekin, Ohina, Yeddo, Japan, and
other points in the Russian and
Chinese empires. A road has already been constructed by the Russian government to Irkoutsk, and it
is expected that this will be extended to form a juncture with the line
from East Cape to Pekin, about sixteen hundred miles from the straits.
This project looks huge. It is, and
a few years ago would have boen
deemed a crazy idea and impossible
of execution. But scarcely a better
country for railroading could be
found, with comparatively small exceptions. Through British Columbia a passage is easy. The weather
on the proposed line is never severe,
and travel is never impeded by snow.
There is but one port on the coast
that dons not remain free of ice during the winter and that is Westminster, which is sometimes filled
with floating cakes. Coal is plentiful and timber inexhaustible. In
Alaska there is but one section
where cold weather would prove a
drawback, and that is no worse than
on the Canadian Pacific. In most
of the territory traversed the temperature scarcely over falls below
zero, The extreme upper part of
Siberia is almost uninhabitable, but
the road will enter that land in
about latitude 62, and the oountry
below that is rioh in minerals, timber, agricultural productions, fun,
etc., and every mile of the road oan
be made to pay. Of course, when
tho Ohinese empire is reached a
treasure house is opened. The distance between Gape Prince of Wales
and Pekin is but little over 1,000
miles, making tho whole route from
St Paul and Minneapolis to Pekin
5,100 miles. The first trains are
expected to run through in ten days
time hut when the inevitabe limited is put on tho passenger who leavos
.St. Paul on Monday will take his
breakfast in Pekin Saturday  morn
ing and his supper Sunday evening
in Hong Kong. The time to Yeddo,
Japan, will be about the same as to
Pekin.

LAST NlfiHFS DESPATCHES,
BAY1KD ON TBE TREATY.
New Yokk, Feb. 27.—The Herald
to-day haa the following . ipecial:
" Washington; D. 0., Feb. 26.—" In
the treaty just concluded and submitted to the senate," said Secretary Bay-
ary, "the United States have a record
practically ol everything we have been
contending for. I don't hesitate to say
if Canada had conceded to American
fishermen iu 1886, one-fourth of the
rights that are secured for them by
this treaty, there would have been no
trouble at all. We would not have had
a single complaint, because no grievance would have been felt, leery
difficulty that the American fishermen
have had to contend with, has been
removed by this treaty. The terms of
the treaty explain themselves; and, if
any further explanation ii needed, it
is provided in the accompanying
message, which the President
communicated to the Senate.
There has been some adverse continent
upon the delimitations, particularly
specified in regard to aome Canadian
bays, but in these nothing has been
lost. Egmont Bay, in Northumberland Strait, is perhaps the largest bay
for whioh the lines of delimitation are
specially stipulated in the treaty, but
there is no fishing whatever in that
bay. Experienced navigators say that
during the past 21 years not one fishing vessel hu been in that bay except
in transit for some place else. Of all
the bays and creeks thus conceded to
Canada, the only ona which contains
any bait or fishing is Chaleur Bay.
Americans do not want it, and could
never use it for fishing purposes, and
under the treaty it will be at their disposal for all the use they will want to
make of it. They can enter it at any
time aa they can enter all other Canadian porta and bays for water, wood,
shelter or repairs, Chaleur Bay ia
possibly about 12 miles wide at the entrance, so that we give them a concession over and above the tan-mile
rule established for the other bays.
The headland Ihooiy of the Canadians,
for instance, would draw a straight
line from one end of Prince Edward
Island to the other, enclosing a semicircular piece of water 40 or 60 miles
in width and many hundreds in length,
and lajMty hundred square miles in extent, er from one fork of Cape Breton
to the other which would have a similar effect. The ten mile width wu
simply a convenient extension of the
six mile width for measuring three
marine miles from each shore. The
United States vessel could enter a bay
six miles wide at the entrance. One
of the reasons for drawing the line at
ten miles is that American fishermen
lose nothing thereby, while the terma
of the treaty are reciprocal. The Canadians are to have the samo privileges
in our bays that we have in theirs and
as we have perhaps 60 large bays for
their one, the ten mile width suits us
better." As to article 15 of the treaty,
which stipulates for larger privileges
in Canadian water on condition that
the United States remove the duty
from Canadian fish and fish oils, Secretary Bayard saya that the treaty is
complete without it. The British and
Canadian plenipotentaries were eager
to have the duty removed and to give
a quid pro quo, but the American negotiators firmly declined all along to
stipulate for any chango in the tariff
or even for any recommendation to
congress to make any change in the
tariff. As to the modus vivendi, whieh
is to endure for two yean, Secretary
Bayard takes nn responsibility. It wu
freely given by the other aide and nothing is asked in return. It calls for
no legislation on our part and no executive action on our part, lt is entirely for the benefit of our people and
to be executed entirely by the other
side. The secretary, however, believes
that many of the United States fishor-
men might find it very profitable to
pay $1.60 per ton for the advantagea
offered them. All the waters secured
exclusively to Canada by the treaty,
the secretary says, do not contain as
muoh as one per cent, of* the fishini*
open to tlie United States fishermen
and he refer*, to the testimony of the
lato Professor Spencer F. Baird, that
the samo have no value whatever for
tho fishermen of the United States.

.     i)'«o.|Sin^||.-i«r-
i . jr»t;\o evi. gjailg §titis\x (Eolumbian
Taesday Evenlar. Feb. is, 1888,
When the ballot amendment bill
was before the provincial legislature
it was suggested by somo member
(Mr. Beaven, we believe) that the
election law ought to prohibit canvassing. The suggestion is not by
any means new, but it is, nevertheless, worthy of most serious consideration. There is no doubt that tho
system of personal canvassing nnd
solicitation of votes so generally pursued is the cause of a great deul of
irregularity nnd not a littlo bribery.
If persons were by law debarred
from soliciting votes personally, the
temptations as well as thu opportunities which so often result in brib
ery would be very much loss. Besides, personal canvassing deprives
us of some of our best representatives. There are good men who,
under other circumstances would
accept nominations as candidates
for public positions, but while personal canvassing is permitted to go
on without restraint they refuse to
enter the field, believing that they
must either canvass or suBer defeat.
Probably there are few of our readers who havo not known instances
in which the municipality or county
has greatly sulYered from this very
cause. It is an exceedingly difficult
problem to solve, however; and although it has engaged the attention
of the house of commons and of a
largo section of the public press, no
one has yet been able to suggest a
satisfactory remedy. Although a
candidate could very well go through
a contest without personal canvassing or soliciting votes, it would be
necessary for him to meet tho electors either publicly or privately and
explain to them his views on the
questioss of the day. It would be a
great hardship if a man could not
explain his views privately to an
elector who sought an explanation;
but such a performance would come
so near the forbidden ground of personal canvassing as to make it extremely difficult to draw the line.
The electors ought not to be reqt'ired
to oast their votes for any person of
whose principles and polioy they aro
in ignorance. Such a requirement
would tepd to make the voter
a mere machine, without in
telligenco or reason. Indeed, if the
law required every voter to give an
intelligent statement of the question
at issue in nny contest, before permitting him to deposit his ballot,
forbidding any to vote who were unable to do so, we are not sure that
such a test would not be in the public interest. A person who does not
vote intelligently casts his -ballot
either ignorantly or by reason of
improper influences; and in either
case he follows a principle which
endangers the public welfare.
From the trade returns it is
learned that Uie value of exports
from Oanada of the products of the
mines, the fisheries, the forest, uni
mal produots, and agriculture was
$61,437,000 in 1878, and $74,236,-
000 in 1887. These may be classed
as the natural products of Canada.
Of manufactured articles Oanada
exported in 1878 goods to the value
of 44,105,000, and $3,079,000 in
1887. It will be seen, therefore,
that during tbe period mentioned
our export of natural products increased by $1*2,700,000, while there
was a decrease of $1,026,000 in the
value of manufactured exports. But
the period covered by these returns
is the period during which a high
tariff has been in force—a tariff
whieh was adopted on tho plea that
it would aid so greatly in the development of manufacturing industries.
That certain manufacturing industries have been developed, no one
will deny; bnt it becomes a serious
question whether the cost to the
country has not been vastly greater than the benefits received. Protection has done very
little for any of the natural products
named. The production of ooal in
eastern Oanada has been stimulated;
but the same tariff has operated
against this very product in British
Columbia. Our best market for coal
is in San Francisco. Last year our
coal mines produced 413,260 tons,
of which no less than 324,949 were
exported to San Francisco and other
California ports. This export trade
is met by a duty, ahd the amount
of duty falls upon the owners of the
mines, But this is not all. The
appliances required in coal mining,
and, indeed, in preparing for market any of our natural products, aro
made dearer by the tariff. It comes
to be a fact, therefore, that the tariff works both ways against the disposal of our natural products. Whilo,
therefore, the tariff was framed for
the purpose of protecting Oanadian
manufactures, our manufactured exports have declined more than one-
quarter; and the export of natural
products, which the tariff does not
proteot, has largely inoreased. The
products of British Columbia avail
able for export are ooal, lumber and
fish. Not one of these is protected
by the tariff, and in the production
of all of them the tariff imposes burdens which place us at a disadvantage aa compared with the people
across (he boundary. But, some
will say, the home market has been
preserMd to our own j>eoplo against
foreign imports. Again the returns
show us tiit while in 1878, under a
low tariff, our imports amounted to
only -160,916,000, last year they
hod reached $78,120,000! So that
it seems as if the high tariff does
not keep out foreign goods to the
extent that. had . been anticipated,
while it prevents the export bf our
own manufactures. Some manufacturers have grown rich under the
tarifl', and kick vigorously ngainst
any modification of it looking to
lower duties. But there are others
(and they are among the foremost
in the country) who hnvo always
opposed high duties, and who arc
still of tho opinion thnt the N. P. is
a mistake. Those men are of opinion that commercial union, or free
commercial intercourse with tho
United .States, would be of advantage! to Canada. Thoy arc not afraid
of American competition, because
thoy nre quite suro of tlieir ability
to manufacture their products quite
as cheaply as they can be manufactured across the iroundury lino.

Provincial Legislature.
On Monday the speaker decided that
the report of the select committee appointed to consider iho impeachment
resolutions was out of order because
it recommended thnt the resolutions
be expunged from the records, which
it had no right to do. Mr. Beaven
wnnted a commission appointed to enquire into the election of Mr. Duck;
but the resolution did uot carry, the
government resisting it as expensive

The lonncll Waited On.
A deputation of tho Royal Templars
of Temperance, headed by Rev. Mr.
Lennie, waited upon the council last
night and presented a petition requesting the council not to repeal or amend
the Sunday observance by-law. Mr.
Lennie delivered a very eloquent harangue and was listened to attentively
by tho council. Mr. Lord followed
asking the council to givo tho by-law a
trial and then if it did not work satisfactorily to repeal it. On motion the
petition was received and laid on the
tnble. ^ __
The Mllltln Notion.
The motion in reference to the
militia, introduced in the provincial
parliament by Mr. Bole, is intended
to cover all tho requirements of tho
province in the matter of military matters. Over und above the defenBeB
along tho coast, the motion will recommend the formation of mounted infantry corps at Chilliwhack, Sumas, Ashcroft, Clinton, Kamloops, Spallumcheen, Nicola, and Kootenay; for Nanaimo and Vancouver artillery and
rifle corps, aud an additional corps in
Westminstor, probably infantry. An
effort will be made to have the existing rifle corps changed into infantry
and formed into battalions. The province is certainly very poorly protected and the government should lose
no time in providing tho means for a
larger nnd more efficient service.

CANON O'MAHONY TO   1IB   PROSECUTED.
London, Fob. 27.—Lord Londonderry, tho viceroy of Ireland, has
directed Major Roberts, the governor
of Cork prison, to prosecute Canon
O'Mahony for libel, iu having accused
Major Roberts of assaulting young
girls. A summons wus issued against
Major Roberts atthe instance of Onnnii
O'Mahony, but the writ was subsequently dismissed by the mmjiatrato on
tne grounds that the evidence produced
by O'Mahony wns insufficient aud too
much time hud elapsed BJnce the alleged offences to mako it possible to
firosecute Major Robert*** under tho
ww. If there is ivnlly any basis for
Canon O'Mahony's charges, however,
his defence in the action for libel will
enable him to prove his cliargoi, since
he will be entitled to introduce evidence that would havo been iundmii-
sable in the criminal proceedings ho
sought to bring against Major Roberta.
CANADA AND AUHTR1LIA.
Ottawa, Fob. 27. —Mr. Woods,
agent-general of the Dominion in Australia, is here aud presented his fin.il
report. Ho is urging on the government the establishment of a through
steamship line via thu Sandwich
Islands nnd Fiji Islands between Van*
couver and Brisbane, in Queensland,
from which point thero is railway
communication to all the other towns.
Tho minimum of time to be assumed
by the route will bo 17i days, nnd tho
Sandwich and Fiji Island-* will constitute tho stopping places. He will go
to Montreal to consult with tho Canadian Paoific Railway company in re-
f;urd to the establishment of such a
ine of steamships, and is of the opinion that his mission will be productive
of such results as will mako his reappointment advisable.
In regard to the trade intercourse already opened, he says that the Massey
manufacturing company   sent   lar^o
?(uantities of implements whioh havo
ound favor and that a prominent soup
oompany had a telegram recently ordering a number of tons to be shipped,
Ho believes that Canada will receive
