Mr. Macdonald point to one single
measure on the statute books or ono
single act that he accomplished for the
welfare of Rossland. He talks about
what he will do If elected. He had an
opportunity. Why didn't he do lt last
year?���Itossland Miner.
Wished Him 8ound Thrashing.
It is surprising what difference there
sometimes Is between the statement ol
a fact and the fact Itself. Mr. J. A.
Macdonald, to whom we wish a very
Happy New Year, and a good sound
thrashing at the elections, which will
be much better for him than leading
a corporal's guard or followers ln the
House, makes the following assertion
In regard to the government, namely,
lhat It bas refused to make a railway
corporatlaon pay its taxes.
That is the statement of the alleged
fact.    The fact itself ls:
Every railway company ln British
Columbia, that Is legally entitled to be
taxed, has been taxed at the full
amounl provided by law and has paid
Its taxes.
Thus ono of Mr. Macdonald's prases
Is olisiwn to be absolutely hollow, and
the others are not any better.���Colonist

Work  Next Season.
The first week of the year In mining
circles, while it has not witnessed
any Incrensed activity, has been marked by several Indications of another
busy and prosperous year.
The iinnoimeemeiii of plans by the
Highlander Mill & Mining Co., made
In Yesterday's Canadian on the authority of Henry M. Stevenson, is only
one of many similar plans. Every
property ln Alnsworth camp will be
the scene of intelligent activity during
1907. The fame of the Krao has made
it easy to secure ample capital for the
development of any Alnsworth property- -    .(i_W
While no really definite news is yet

reopening of the Ymir mine and mill
will come sooner than Mr. Hand at
first expected.

The stock market for the past week

was dull and shares inactive. Tbe
condition will undoubtedly dispelled
now that the holidays are over and

the news department of the Onictle
would be opened every day In future
with prayer by himself or ministers
or the clly. The announcement created considerable surprise, as Mr. Ross

Civic Fathers Will  Be  Elected by Acclimation���Hammer the  Mayor.
(Special to Tho Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Jan. 5.���A mass meeting or the citizens was held Thursday
evening in Ihe clly hall for the purpose
of selecting a mayor and board of aldermen who could be elected by acclamation for next year's municipal council, and thus avoid the city considerable needless expense In tbe way or
an election. Alderman Fred Cooper
was elected chairman of the meeting
and W. H. M. May secretary.
A petition signed by nearly all the
business men of the city yas presented to the meeting by W. K. C. Manly,
which requested Mr. Jeffrey Hammer,
the local manager for P. Burns & Co.,
to consent to be nominated for the or-
flee of mayor. At this Juncture a vote
of the meeting was taken to ascertain
how many were In favor of Mr. Hammer, when a show of hands disclosed
plainly that Mr. Hammer was the
choice of the meeting.
Prospective Mayor Hammer, in addressing the meeting, said ln part
"that he was strongly against having
Grand Forks an open town." He said
he would mflst assuredly be against
such a move. He also stated that he
had worked for wages all his life and
was not in favor of a mayor and board
of aldermen serving the city without
At this meeting a list ot cltlzeus
were proposed as candidates for aid-
dermanlc honors.
Leaps Into National Prominence for
Fourth Time.
New York, Jan. 5.���For the fourth
time in his life Henry Clay Frlck has
leaped Into national prominence. When
President Cassatt of the Pennsylvania
Railroad company was taken seriously
ill last summer and it seemed that he
was no longer able with his old vigor
to struggle wllh the vast problems presented to the head of that great system, the directors, lt Is said, cast
about for a possible successor in the
event of Mr. CasBatt's death. They
fixed upon Mr. Flick. Whether the
former steel magnate accepts the title
of president or not It Is quite certain
that he Is to be the dominating force
In the affairs of the Pennsylvania. He

Individual owner ot stock-
Mr. Frlck is deputed to own about
60,000 shares or the stock ot the Pennsylvania railroad. His InMucnce in the
policy ot the road has been recognized
for some time, and during the past
few years rarely wns any Important financial project or extension of the
road decided upon until President Cassatt secured Mr. Flick's views on the
Bucking Beer Commission.
Edmonton, Alta., Jan. 6���The province of llrlllsh Columbia Is delaying
1 the work of the beer commission, according to the Alberta government.
Everything was In readiness for work
and British Columbia had made appointment to the commission of one
who was nol in a position to act. When
this was learned another was appointed, but the appointment was made Irregularly, and when the gentleman nr-
rive_^*at lhe meeting which was to
have boen held In Calgary he wns not
in a position to proceed. Though pressure hns been brought to bear upon
the British Columbia government ever
since no appointment has been made,
and for that reason nothing has lieen
done. The province of llrlllsh Columbia seems Indisposed lo take any
action iinlli lifter the elecllon, desiring to make enemies of no one. In

rains have caused enormous avalanches of mud to Blart from lhe top or
.Mount Vesuvius. They grew In size
as they swept along and eventually
spread out over several square miles.

Shareholders   of   N. W.   C. A C. Co.
Want W. A. Qalllher   to    Explain
Non-Performance of Duties.
A general meeting of the North West
Coasl & Coke Co. was held in the offices In Ihe Aberdeen block yesterday
afternoon at .1 o'clock. *
The directors, J. L. Stamford, W. W.
Deer. F. Seaman nnd B. B. Mlghton,
sought tho advice of the stockholders
in regard to tho tendored resignation
of Ihe company's solloitor, W. A. Qalllher, M. P.
The directors slated that for certain services, which were not all legal,
Mr. Qalllher had received an order for
$2000 on the purchaser of the properties, F. H. Clergue. The services
have not beeu performed. It has also
boen learned that prior to tho provisional sale Mr. Galliher had neglected

Duncan Ross Looks In���Deane Has Not
Yet Resigned.
The very latest political story heard
on the streets of Vancouver, says tbe
Province, is tbat the coming West of
Mr. Duncan Robs, M. P., ln the same
car with Mr. W. W. B. Mclnnes has
more significance than this mere social announcement would indicate.
The Information Is that Mr. Ross, too,
has been at Ottawa receiving orders,
and will immediately resign from bis
seat ln the house of commons. And
II haB been practically decided that he
will run in Simiikameen in opposition
to Mr. L. W. Shatford.
ThiB news created quite a sensation
thiB morning when lt was retailed on
Hastings street, among the snowbanks. Politicians who talked lt over
forgot all about the cold when they
considered how big a hand tbe Ottawa
government and tbe V. W. & Y. and
the Qrand Trunk Pacific ls taking in
tbe British Columbia jackpot.
And It Is said, too, that Mr. Ross
will shortly after Uie election take a
position of alliance with the Qrand
Trunk Pacific. The Btory ls that he
will start a paper later at Prince Rupert and handle an advertising campaign for the Northern townsite.
Mr.| F. J. Deane, formerly a member
of the provincial legislature, Is also
on the Mclnnes car, coming west to
draw cards. Unlike Mr. Mclnnes and
Mr. Ross, he has not resigned from
anything.    Nor does be intend to.
Prosecution   Will     Force     Defence  to
Explain Killing.
New York. Jan. 6.���According to an
announcement made yesterday it is
practically settled In the district attorney's office Just what will be done
by the prosecution In presenting its
case against Harry K. Thaw tor the
murder of Stanford White. From the
prosecution's standpoint the trial will
be a short one. About five witnesses
will be examined In presenting the direct case. These witnesses will tell
of the shooting and the events that
happened on the Madison Square roof
garden. It should not take more than
a few hours, it Ib said, for tbe prosecution to put In its entire .direct evidence. It will be a simple Btory of the
killing, showing that White was shot
at a table while watching the performance, without any chance of defending himself.
Tbe Idea Is to have tlie defence explain the killing. Unless there is a
change ln the present plans the crucial
part of the trial will come in these explanations. District Attorney Jerome
will have charge of the trial, assisted
by Mr. Garvin.
Flynn Knocked Him Out.
Los Angeles, Jan. 5.���Jim Flynn of
Pueblo won from Jack Sullivan of Boston here last night after 20 terrific
rounds. Flynn won the decision oh
his aggressiveness and terrible punching and on his ability to receive punishment. Sullivan's cleverness saved

seen to strike Flynn with his elbow
and butt him with his head. The
crowd protested against such acts.
Neither men were knocked down during the fight, but both took a lot ot
Obsequies of Baroness.

Kaslo   Conservative Convention    Will
unanlm.utly   TenJtr   Nomination
for That District.
The Conservative convention here
next Monday promises to be well attended. Never before were the Tories
of Kaslo riding so confident of success
as they are In the coming election,
says the Kootenaian. But that confidence will not be overrated and nothing will be left undone to secure victory. Organization is now merrily going on and will Boon be complete. R.
F. Green will be there to address the
gathering, and that he will be tendered
the nomination unanimously ls a foregone conclusion. Whether he will be
ln a position to accept or not remains
to be seen. For reasons beat known
to the Conservatives themselves which
will be made public later, it is the undivided opinion that Mr. Green should
stand for re-election here. His Conservative friends and others particularly desire lt, and will press acceptance upon him. Should he positively
decline tbat will settle the matter and
the convention will act accordingly.
So far, his retirement, as far as Kaslo Is concerned, Is uncertain, as no official intelligence has been received
here. Even If the reports prove true
he will be asked to reconsider his decision and requested to again become
tbe member for the constituency he
has served so faithfully and bo well.
Business Interests may deter hlm from
being a cabinet minister but not from
becoming a private member. One position demands all his time, the other
only part, and for this reason hope ls
expressed that he may again stand
for nomination and certain re-election.

Soon after the disturber wae sllenc
ed an outburst followed Vollva's dec
laratlon that hu would distribute
pamphlets exposing the various Mason
Ic oaths.
A third dramatic sensation occurred
when Vollva walked to the front of
the platform and asked one of tbe followers of Dowle to shake his hand
The latter refused, declaring that he
would not shake hands with the devil.
Vollva predicted that before another
year had passed be would have reorganised Zion Clly . on a substantial

Thf announcement made in the manifesto of Premier McBride with respect
the improved financial conditions
bf the province and the determination
of the government to devote lis ener-
gle_ Faithfully to the most profitable
expenditure of ihe handsome Burpltu
which lies in the treasury will he received with rejoicing hy those who
have any faith in the development of
the province. Tin- opposition organs
have heen lustily charging that the
government has permitted the roads
and highways to full into a state of
miserable disrepair, bul tbe fiharge is
not substantiated by Ihe citation of a
single instance. The charge in Itself
is as tar frnm tin* truth as any of those
inflammatory -grievances which ever
and anon are fanned hy the malcontent   Liberal  press.
While It is true thai there has been
forced upon the government a system
of retrenchment with reaped tn the
prosecution of extensive public works,
the highways of the province have not
been neglected, They are everywhere
In a better state of repair today than
J Jut. in the plans for realizing the
most that can be accomplished by the
expenditure of the Increased revenue
it may be assumed that the newer settlements whose needs have been presented to the government will receive
dillgnt attention. During the past
two or Uinae years extensive settlement has taken place in different parts
of Hritish Columbia. To rush hastily
into the consfruclion of expensive
roadways and before the settlers had
proved their holdings would have been
the height of folly.    The construction
of roads now disiarded and other public works in earlier days left the province with a legacy of debt from whose
burden it has but recently been relieved. To repeat such blunders would
have been unbusinesslike and would
cull for (he condemnation of all good
business men.
The government, however, having
passed the rubicon now announces its
intention of carrying into execution a
scheme whereby the dollars may be
made to yield the best results, aud
many of the rural districts will be the
beneficiaries of this movement.
It is surprising, therefore, to find
the opposition press indulging in the
cheap criticism that this proposal is
a species of bribery. For years the
opposition has been magnifying the alleged neglect of the administration and
decrying Its policy of economy, railing at Ui_ departments because there
has not been in operation the system
of extravagant disti Tout ion of public
funds which precipitated the financial
crisis six years ago. At no time In
its history could the government have
saloly made such an announcement as
is contained in the premier's manifesto, Now that it has done this the
action is characterized as dishonest
and corrupt. These criticisms show
the animosity ot the opposition, their
inbred suspicion, their long training In
lhat school where every dollar spent
In public works ls accepted as a bribe
and understood to be the price -paid
for political loyalty and support. Of
any other than sinister motives the
opposition cannot believe any government possessed, and the example of
Ottawa must he to some extent their
In tbe meantime, the good work initiated and planned by the government
will go on. That is an administrative
function of good government. The
money will be wisely spent. The new
settlements will have facilities for
transportation afforded them and they
will not be asked how they propose to
vote before the election nor how they
did vote after it fs over, A charge
from which the government is admittedly free is that of bestowing its favors with regard to political allegiance
and they will continue to extend thut
cerned over the "tactical mistake"
made by Premier McHrlde ln his selection of William Manson for the office
or provincial secretary. The solicitude
betrayed for the older members of the
Liberal-Conservativ-e party is truly
touching. We hold no brief for the
defence of the premier in his selection
of material for his cabinet, but the
characterization of Mr. Manson in the
Grit organ is a travesty upon human
decency und reaches the limit of purblind partizanship. The provincial
secretary has beeu a resident in different pails of Vancouver Island for a
period of twenty years nnd is known
in almost every nook and corner of
that miniature continent. There is
scarcely any public office lhat he hus
not held outside of a cabinet position,
and political preference and prominence has heen offered him for years.
As a business man he Is universally
respected and has shown rare ability
to manuge affairs whose annual financial turnover has reached the seven
There is scarcely a constituency on
Vancouver Island where Mr. Manson
could not be elected over any candidate the Liberals might choose a�� his
opponent. His selection by the premier for a place in the reconstructed
cabinet will meet with general approval if for no other reason than that
younger meu are being placed in positions of trust and responsibility than
formerly. The selection of men, irrespective of political or personal favor-
itisms is a creditable departure from
established political methods for which
Premier McUride is to be given credit.
While we mean no disrespect to any
claimant of Mr. Manson's position we
think that if the News' version is correct and others have been overlooked
In the premier's choice, it shows that
Mr. McUride wants- to surround himself with the very best available counsellors in the party he leads.
In the closing paragraph of its reference to the new minister the height
of puerility is reached.   It says:
"For Mr. Manson The Daily News
has every respect���as a private citizen.
Put as a legislator he Is one of the
weakest of the weak���a good man
without the strength of conviction
requisite to successfully mingle with
and hold his own against companions
of the coarser grain."
How does the Solon of the News
know this? The assertion is a pure
and unvarnished assumption. It betrays an utter ignorance of the character of the man it belittles, and in another respect it is as shallow as it is
insulting. Even if Mr. Manson were
the weak man he Is said to be by the
irresponsible Grit organ, he will not,
In the McBride cabinet or In the Conservative party be obliged to "mingle
with and hold his own with companions of the coarser grain."
And since we have said this much
we shall add that Premier McHrlde
is not making "tactical blunders" In
theee days any more than he did when
ue outwitted Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
scheme, for securing control of this
province at the price of better terms.

Tbe morning organ Is serlouBly con-
We reproduce below a special despatch appearing in the Daily News
this morning dated Victoria, Jan. 4.
We think the publication of the article
ln these columns will do the cause of
the Liberal-Conservative government
more good than a closely reasoned argument because It Is a clear disclosure
of the methods upon which the Daily
News depends to make Its capital
against the government. The despatch
fs as follows:
"H. Helgesen, Dominion fishery inspector of the district between the
Skeena and Hazleton, who ls here,
strongly denounces the McHrlde government for Its land ]iollcy.   He says*.
'" 'There is no greater menace to the
prosperity of Itritish Columbia at the
present time than the wholesale ac-
quisliion of fine mining lands and
other districts in the Interior by foreign and home capitalists and speculators. The districts adjacent to the
Skeena and all the rich valleys between the Fraser and the coast are
drlltiug inlo the hands of people and
syndicates who will hold lheni until
lhe influx of Immigrants through the
mountains and over the Grand Trunk
Pacific. Then they will feed on this
tide of settlerB by asking their own
"Mr. Helgesen also makes a startling
statement respecting the scrip issued
to Ihe Strathcona Horse and other
South African soldiers upon their return from the front
"'If I remember rightly, there wero
COO of these Issued entitling the holders to their choice of land In various
sections of the interior. People who
are in a position to speak with author-
lly claim that this number has increased ln some mysterious manner, and
many go so far ass to offer wagers that
some 2000 are now In existence."
It ls needless to deny such evident
fabrication. The morning paper knew
the wire was a falsehood before it sent
the copy to the printer. But what does
it care? Having no good honest ground
upon which to stand in its criticism of
the McBride administration It descends to the levd of the thug, and
while not daring to openly assert that
Mr. Green'B department had been corruptly administered, Its Insinuates    In

headlines that this may have been a
reason for his leaving the cabinet. The
old story . Insinuation, Inuendo, fabrication and brazen lie, because there
is nothing truthful to say exefpting
what would reflect credit on the government.
The organ which keeps a paid correspondent at Victoria to invent these
fabrications, publishes them without
shame, while it made a violent attack
upon the Daily Canadian because thi3
paper reprinted an article published
by the Kaslo Kootenaian respecting
the sale of his practice by Dr. Hall, the
Uberal candidate. We -.-ive credit for
the item. The News lakes responsibility for its own. It calls ub a coward for publishing what purported to
be the truth about Dr. Hall. Coward
is too honorable a name for the paper
that will publish such insinuations as
appear in the despatch above.
Moro than this, if the Daily News
dares to publish what it knows to he
the facts about the government's war
scrip transactions we will in turn undertake to publish what we know to
be the truth about Dr. Hall's negotia
tions for the sale of his practice.
It will he observed that H. Helgesen,
quoted ln the despatch, is an official
of the Dominion government. The Ottawa administration is doing its work
in a manner quite up to the usual
Tariff Revision as Canada gets it
from Hon. W. S. Fielding recalls the
lemon pies which the guest praised:
"What I like about your pies, ma'am,"
he said, "is that they haven't got that
flavor of lemon I object to in some
pies." And what Canada likes about
the Fielding tariff revision is that it
does not carry the fine flavor of free
trade that has been eulogized by the
Toronto Globe, Toronto Star, and other
advocates of the pro-Yankee Tad tliat
would wreck Canadian industry and destroy Canadian nationality.-**-Ex.

Commemoration of the Epiphany���Who
and  Whence   Were   the   Magi?���
Services Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the Feast of the
Epiphany, the second great event commemorated In the church year, the
manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles.
No holy days occur during the week
The gospel for the day Is full of
points on which learned opinions have
differed, and still differ, although lt
is a plain narrative told by St. Matthew.
St. Matthew's story, divested of the
majestic language of the English nible,
1> that shortly after the birth of Christ
wise men. probably philosophers,
came "from the East," led by a remarkable Btar, seeking the birthplace
of the new-born king, to pay Him homage. King Herod, perplexed, consulted the Jewish divines and authorities.
The prophecies were studied and revealed that It was foretold thai the
Messiah of Ihe race should be born
in Bethlehem. Still led by the mystic
star thev found the Lord's birthplace,
worshipped the Divine infant and, mistrustful of King Herod, departed again
into that vague East from which they
The Star of Bethlehem remains one
of the unsolved problems of astronomy.

The "wise men of the East* hnve
beun the subject of endless speculation.
Chinas. India and Persia have been
guested as Iheir country. Hut other
questions arise also to which no answer la yet forthcoming. What did
they know, and how. of Jewish history
anil prophecy? Was there a liellef
among the learned of all nations that
God would take upon Himself the nature of mam to redeem the world, aud
be born among one of the poorest of
{'�� races? Or waB the East referred
to ,'eopled by ono or more of the lost
tribes ��t l8"*el who *uu clie,l8hcd the
promise? ..
The fact' that these questions seem
not to have ^curred to the evangelist
would Indicate that the evenls he records seemed natural to him, mid lhal
Ihe coming of a Mflne Saviour was a
common article of faith among all peo-
pies. The disasters that wrecked the
Roman world and put out the light of
learning for centuries In burope nnd
Western Asia have made all such questions unanswerable, perhaps for ever.
