Nothing to Take Back.
The olher day The News Bald thai
Nova Scolla politics were notoriously
curnipe. This has provoked an out-
hurst of wrath from some or the chler
Liberal newspapers of lho province. It
Is snlsl that we have "Instilled Nova
Scotia,'' and that wo must "take It
buck."' Put we shall neither withdraw
nor modify lhe statement In the loust
particular. This was what tho Llbcr-
iil politicians charged when thoy were
'l��� opposition, and certainly tbelr own
methods Blnce they came into ortlce
huve nol Improved the situation. No
other province demanda and receives
more In cash, public works and subsi
dise for election purposes than Nova
Scotia. No other province draws more
hi'iivliy upon thc central campaign
fund. No one with any Intimate knowledge of elections In Canada would
think It worth while to deny these
Statements, and The News, therefore,
lias nothing to wIL.daw, and has said
nothing fnr which It desires lo apologize.���Toronto News.

Otlawa. Dec. 1.���The session of parliament which began on Thursday
gives promise of unusual interest, it
Is the beginning of a new system. Sessions hereafter will commence in tho
autumn instead of in the latter part
or the winter, and the fiscal year Is to
close In March Instead of in June. The
promised legislation of this year Includes a revision of the tariff and the
readjustment of provincial subsidies.
Other bills mentioned in lhe speech
from the throne are a measure Increasing the representation of Alberta
and Saskatchewan in the commons,
one relating to tbe treaty with Japan,
an amendment to the election actB,
and certain department bills. The address was mainly historical, containing much solemn Information long
since familiar to all  who heard It.
From a political point of view the
event of greatest interest on the opening day was the announcement made
by the speaker of the commons that
he had received from Hon. C. S. Hyman, minister of public works, the
resignation of his seat In the house.
The speaker stated tbat notice given
by the member for London was not In
accord with it,. ���.�����.��_ n����i >v-���ia k-.o
to be made regular. Mr. Ilyman understands the rules and must have
acted rather hastily. Two days before
the session the London Advertiser,
organ of the government in Mr. Hyman's own city, announced that the
minister of public works was ln 111
health as the result of overwork and
would be obliged to go South for a
rest. But everyone knows that Mr.
Hyman resigns on accout of the discovery of the election conspiracy by
which he was returned to the house of
commons when he became minister
last year. Tbe only wonder Is that
Mr. Hyman did not resign as soon as
the statement of deputy returning officer Collins disclosing the conspiracy
In which he and others were concerned had beeu made in court.
It ls Interesting now to recall the
declarations and boastings of ministers and their orgaus that the election of Mr. Hyman was a triumphant
vindication of the government policy
or coercion In the West. As the autonomy measure was made the Issue
In lhat campaign Mr. Hyman's majority was quoted from Victoria to Sydney as an indication of popular approval. The London election inquiry
has shown thut Ihe majority Indicated
only the possession on the part oi
.Mr. Hyman's friends of unlimited money, nnd their utter absence of mornl
scruples. Hence the conspiracy for
lbe suppression of tlie will of the people. The ghastly story of tliese criminal operallotiH, Involving breaches or
trust, perjuries nnd briberies hy deputy returning officers especially selected for thla very purpose, wholesale bijbory. tampering wllh ballots
and other offences need not he told
again. Mr. Hyman has held the stolen
seat through one session and pnrt ot
another. Now ho Is forced lo give It
up. He and his colleagues must at
the same time abandon Ihe claim thnt
the electors have expressed approval
of Ihe government policy.
At the time ot writing It Is uncertain whether Mr. Hyman will retire
from the government or hold on to Ills
ori'ice and go back for re-election. He
Is himself In the United Stales, and
at a time when the affairs of his great
spending department most need explanation there Ib no minister to explain
anything; Sir Wilfrid Laurler In formed Ihe house tbat Mr. Hyman had tendered the resignation of his orrice,
but that ho, himseir, had not yet
thought lt well to lay the resignation
before the governor general.
The leader of the government and
the lender of the opposition Introduced
supporters returned since the last ses
sion. The new Conservatives are Mr.
Marshall of Khsi Elgin and Mr. White
of North Renfrew. Some curiosity
was felt concerning Mr. Robitatile, who
ran as au Independent, and won an
Immenac majority over the government candidate in Quebec county,
heretofore a strong Liberal constituency. Sir Wilfrid and his iKistmaster
general had both taken the stump
against Mr. Kobitalile, as had several
provincial ministers. Liberal members
of parliament and senators. Mr. Itobt-
iiiiil.��� was introduced by neither of the
regular party leaders, but appeared
under the escort of Mr. Bourassa and
Mr. Lavergne, lnde|iendent or Nationalist Liberals. It Is dear that the
new member for Quebec county can
not he Included among the regular
supporters of  the government.
On the day before the house met,
two by-clecllons were held In Montreal, in districts which had given
large government majorities two years
ago. St. Mary's division had returned a Liberal in 1904 by nearly lotni
majority, and the Conservatives did
not Interfere In the by-election, as the
labor party had chosen a candidate
and the government was opposing him.
The ministerial candidate has been
elected by an Increased majority over
the working man.
In the SI. Ann's division the Conservatives put up a good fight and reduced the majority from 730 to 202
This result shows lhat the city of
Montreal and the province of Quebec
offer great encouragement to courageous and organized effort In the Conservative cause.

that he has not adhered to the terms

agreement between Mr. Hill and Mr.
McKane that in consideration of the
former supplying the latter with a
certain sum of money be should secure a one-quarter interest in all the
profits of the investment. In other
words, C. P. Hill supplied John McKane' with what was practically a

Activity at Queen Victoria
Group Near Nelson
General Mining Situation Still Improving;, Outside Interest Keen-
Stock Quotations.
The general mining outlook shows
little change since last week, 'ine
disastrous effects of the fuel shortage
caused by the strike ln the East Ko.v.
enay and Alberta coal fields, is still
felt by the smelters, and hampers
their acceptance or ore and concentrates, the disposal of which ls becoming a serious problem to the managers of many of tbe biggest mines ln
the district.
At Alnsworth the week has been a
quiet one; no new discoveries have
been reported, but all results of work
are said to be very satisfactory anu
to   confirm   all   former   predictions.
In the immediate vicinity of Nelson
considerable activity is reported from
Ihe Queen Victoria copper group,
which is being, worked by J. P. Swed-
borg under lease and bond. It Is said
that the body of ore, which Is high
grade, is 40 feet wide. It Is also said
that steps are being taken Tor the immediate construction of a tram line.
Outside interest in Kootenay  mines
Is undoubtedly keener and more gen- *
eral  than at any other time for five
years at least

over   th^   several    preceding    weeks,
both ln demand and values.
The feature of the week's trading
waa the advance and demand for Diamond Vale Coal. This demand was in
evidence all over Canada from east
to west, with the result that the
shares bounded up over C cents within two days with every indication of
going [beyond the present quotation.
The reason for this activity Is not apparent to outsiders and caution ls being advised pending the learning of
the cause of the excitement.
Denora Mines held rather firmer
the fore part of the week and upon
the report being received that the settlement of the strike has been effected these shares became active and
again ln great demand. The White
Bear assessable shares caused quite
a number of Inquiries with a few sales'
reported at advanced prices.
Nicola Coal Mines is exhlbitint
some strength with the bids over 'i
cents above recent quotations.
Cariboo-McKlnney weakened within
the last few days and is now being offered freely at 2 cents below the previous quotation.
Sullivan, International Coal, Rambler-Cariboo and North Star showed almost no cnange, but If anything were
slightly  weaker.

vauced civilization will have to meet
those of new born genius, perseverance, ambition ami pluck. There may
be no yellow peril as is so complacently assumed by many, but we are ot
the opinion '-hat it is tar otherwise,
and events will soon shape themselves so as to teach the world new
lessons in the adjustment or balance
of   international   affairs.
Headers of the daily ami weekly publications of the Interior must have
been impressed wiih the development
which has taken place and is continuing to take place in the Boundary
section of the province. The mineral
development alone, while not startling
in iis nature, is of such a character
ns to afford interest to capital and labor, while the industries existent there
ata already of sufficient Importance
to assure the future progress of the
entire section.
The prosecution and completion of
construction work on the v.. V. &
Eastern will afford the necessary connections with the coast and the outside world, while the Irrigable areas
which are being brought under cultivation assure the fruit growing and
other agricultural possibilities of that
Thus, while the Kootenays are enjoying a measure of prosperity that
has been unexampled hitherto, it would
appear that the whole interior of British Columbia is meeting with a generous recognition of its attractions and
the Inducements it offers to investors
and settlers.
There is no jealousy between these
various points and nothing but gratification on the part of one at tbe success and advancement of another. The
Boundary forms an Important link in
the interior between the rapidly developing Kootenay sections and the
coast and its quiet but creditable
projects will be appreciated throng*
out British  Columbia.

Recent events in the Flowery King'
dom go to show that the Japanese arfl
passing through one of those transition periods which comes to every
man ami nation at some time of life.
Having ripped off the swaddling
clothes of the superstitious past that
uution is experiencing ambitions
which may yet bring her to destruction, even upon the very tliicslibold
of her attainment of recognition as B
leading power of the world.
Tho wur with Russia, especially because of the consequences, so disss'
troiiH to Russia nml so gratifying to
Japan, seems to have .Whetted lhe appetite of the latter nation for power
and possession to tv degree uustispeci
ed  heretofore.
Just as straws tell which way ih*-
wind blows there are trifling Incidents
which at times go lo show how seriously the thought of a nation la engaged in matters of its international
relationship- Recently the city of San
Francisco refused admission to her
common schools to Japanese pupils requiring these to attend a separate and
inferior school. While there was nothing l\\ the Incident to suggest that it
might involve international complication- the affair was Immediately seiz
ed upon by the Japanese minister and
made the subject of protest,- with
threat of reprisals of various kinds
Though the matter has since been
amicably adjusted it has served to
arouse the attention of critics and
philosophers who have noticed in thnt
simple event one evidence of the an:
bltfon of Japan and the determination
of the Oriental people to take a leading place In the affairs of the world.
A capable and  qualified  writer has
pointed out that the next war of great
Importance to the world must be between the I'nited States and the empire of the mikado, and Toronto Saturday .Night properly sizes up the situation iu a few well written paragraphs,
which  we   reproduce:
'"Japan has three serious grievances
against the United States of America.
First is the long asserted claim of race
superiority, and Japan the conqueror
ot Russia is in no mood to tolerate
this. Second, is the acquisition of the
Philippines, for Japan needs those
islands in her business. Third, thu
peace of Portsmouth was brought
ahout by the butting in of the American republic where more cautious nations held back. Russia stepped in
and deprived Japan of the fruits of
her victory over China, and from that
moment preparations were made to
grapple with Russia. It is said that
the people throughout Japan feel that
Washington has robbed them of the
fruits of their victory over Russia,
just as si. Petersburg did a dozen
years earlier,
"The Jaii has not sense enough to
be afraid of the I'nited States. II*
had not sense enough to Im' afraid ol
Russia, a power great enough by BO*
tuai weight and measurement to bam
crushed the life out of him. The '���
has noi sense enough to value peace
more than war and commerce more
Mian conquest No race iu coming up
out of barbarism learns this except
under the barrow of utter defeat. The
yellow men of Japan, convinced of
their racial superiority, desire peace
only for preparation. They iniend it,
awe the world.
���Tokyo demands from Washington
recognition in the I'nited States for
her people on a Footing of equality.
This cannot be given.   California even
wants an eXClUBlOQ law against lhe
Ja .��, nnd by every mention of it in
suits the vainest race in the world..
Meanwhile, ihe strategists of the mikado look at tin* Philippines and assure their master thnt with "heir navy
so nenr the spot nnd the enemy's navy
so far away, thev could poness lbe
Islands in n fortnight His statesmen,
too. will be sure to tell him. that If
those Islands are tn lie Jolted out of
(he hands of thfl new owner, tho trick
must  l��o done soon or never���soon, ere
t h e grl p ho   \ i phtened. a nd   soon. so
��� hat a na'Mnu vastly richer than -Tanan
bay not read her tiesltrns nnd outhillld
M"d mi1 do her in preparations for a
struagl. "
There oan be little doubt ihat the
trend of events is In the direction or
wnr between these two nations. The
Innate pride of the East is pitted
against the artificial superiority or
Lhe neuve riche people or nation at
our south and lhe Indications point to
a  conflict   In  which  the  forces ol ad-
Signs are not wanting that Clifford
Sifton Will be taken back into Sir Wilfrid Laurler's cabinet either to replace
Mr. Hyman or to fill another portfolio.
Mr. Sifton is an able statesman, but
without the ability to manage tbe affairs of office irrespective of graft and
the advantage's to one's friends that
should never enter into the administration of public affairs. Mr. Sifton
���flas a noor man n f-pv vears affO and
today Is reputed to be fabulously
wealthy. How a man In public life
can rise from poverty to affluence in
a few years without someone suffering
by reason of the transition Is always
a  problem  in   political   economy.
Sir Wilfrid wants Clifford Sifton
back and wants him badly because the
cabinet is lamentably short of good
timber as constituted today. It fs a
singular condition of affairs that while
Fielding was unseated for the corrupt
practices of his agents and Hyman
has resigned for similar reasons, Mr.
Sifton has had for two years a charge
hanging over his head protesting his
last election. Good straight unwarned
timber is not too plenty in the Liberal
administration at present to say none
of these things which might be said
of Mr. Sifton at this time.

Observance  and   Meaning  of  Advent���
Servicea   in  City  Churches   An-
nounced for Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the first Sundny
In Adveni, the beginning oi ths churcn
year, No holy days occur during the
The leafon of Advent, llkfl Lflttt, Iiiih
been observed by ihu church from
Unit; immemorial, on a period of Caso
itiKiiiK uud   prayer,   preceding the  tec-
tivui of Christmas,  tbe  thanksgiving
for the blrlh of the Suvlou.*.
The collect, epiatle uud gospel appointed tor tbe duy ull breathe of
change and regeneration, s cull to
worthier and holler living, a prayer
'"ihut we may ca_t away lbe works ol
darkness and put upon us the armour
of light." words taken from Bt Paul's
epistle  lo tlie  Unman:;.
Tbe gospel contains the narrative
of Christ's entry Into Jerusalem, escorted by tbe multitude, which so soon
afterward descried Mm, as iiis fortunes seemed  to decline.
The general answer to the question
"Who Is this?" "This is Jesus, the
prophet of Nazareth," shows that at
lhal time even Ills disciples bad not
realized that thetr Master was divine.
Tbe narrative closes with tbe cleansing of the temple, which had been degraded from a house of prayer to a
place of commerce.
The idea of Advent also suggests,
and the collect for tbe day explicitly
refers to His second coming, so eagerly awaited by His first disciples, and
confidently, If fearfully, dxpected at
many different times, by the cliurch
of the early and middle ages.
Advent Sunday, as the day of beginning of thi? observances with which
from year to year the church follows
the course of the life of her Founder,
Is naturally lhe season of review of
tho work of the church during the
closing year, a movable anniversary
In  the life of the church community.
In mundane circles, however, Advent has never affected customs and
fashions in the same manner as the
better known season of abstinence,
Lent. Even If Christianity could lose
Its hold on the civilized world and
Lent and Easter lost all religious significance, iheir influence would undoubtedly long survive on lhe changing fashions of the year, and probably
also in their effect on trade in the
Advent bas made no such Impress
on secular life. Us significance and
its observance nre nothing except to
those who follow, more or less regularly ,the annual presentment by the
Church of the doctrines of Christianity as taught by Ihe life, the words
and works of the Head of tho church.
The following services are announc
ed al the various churches for tomorrow:
