Steady  Gi   #11,   of  Traffic   in   Both   Depart   ients���Operating Coats
New York, Feb. 20.���The Wall Street
Journal says:
"The January statement of the Great
Northern Railroad, which reports only
Its total gross business each month,
showed the gratifying Increase of nearly $740,000 over the corresponding
month of 1907.
"While these figures are ln keeping
with the substantial gains shown by
this road for every month since the beginning of the fiscal year, they must be
discounted If they are to be fairly compared with earnings for the same month
last winter. The Northwest experienced
in 1906-7 the worst winter on record
since the entrance of railroads into that
territory. In Northern Minnesota and
in North Dakota there was an unheard
of depth of snow, which caused constant
blockades, and made the Great Northern's efforts to move traffic futile al
times. Fuel and supplies were moved
to the exclusion of other traffic, and in
addition to the very considerable loss
of business during this period the road
was put to an unusual expense of $960.
000 to keep its line open.
"However, Great Northern's consistent Increase In traffic each month since
June third Indicate that January, 1908,
would show a satisfactory gain if com
pared wilh a normal corresponding
month. The seven months' total, excluding, of course, last month's extraordinary Increase, waa $4,885,203 more
than a year ago. This ls an Increase ln
gross earnings of 14.7 per cent., and it
would be interesting to know to what
extent operating costs have gone up In
the same time.
"How business this year has Increased
each month over the same month of
1907, Is shown below. The figures emphasize ulso the greater difficulties of
operation with the advance of winter
last year:
..  6,086.344
..  4.820,006
...   3,313,130
"Under the more favorable weather
conditions met with this winter the
ratio of operating expenses to earnings
shuld be much lower as to make the
Increase in net earnings in these months
relatively even larger than the Increase
In gross."

The Socialists of Kootenay will in. .-i
in Nelson on Monday, March 2nd, to
select a candidate for the house of
commons at the next genera] Dominion
general elections. On whom the cholc.
will   fall   no  one   cares   to  predict.
When the Liberals meet in convention for a similar purpoae, their task
WlU be simple. Unless tlie genial Mr.
Qalliher is otherwise provided for In
the meantime, they have nothing to do
but accept his decision lo succp-cd him-
nelf an Liberal candidate, uud ratify hi.s
own nomination. It Is a humiliating position of course but it is oue iu which
the Liberals have placed themselves.
Tha.- present Liberal Ideul of a member
of parliament is oue who votei aaba-al-
lentiy ami una-|uest.iamiugiy for everything dictated, Whether It be condoning
theft, suppressing the truth or ratifying
the appointment to the civil service of
convlcla-d criminals. To thai Ideal Mr.
Oalliher conforms as do nearly ull tho
Liberal members. Of courBe witii such
members ln the house lt ls Impossible
to repair the wuslage In the cabinet
This is thoroughly recognized by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and 00_eo.Uently the
practice has become firmly establish, al
of ignoring the Liberal members in lha*
houBe, when any Important position Incomes vacant, and seeking cabinet material anywhere else.
The  old  idea  that  every   member of
parliament    is     potentially   a    cabinet
minister bus been abandoned.   Indeed it
Iiud to be.   A man with any Ideaa Could
not he tho docile creumre thut the ami,
und llle Liberui member Ib required to
be. There is a small body of men re*
omit ad from oulBldo the liuuse to do
the thinking, und a large body recruited anywhere to do the voting. In such
circumstances Mr. (Sallilui ls admirably
qualified to he a Libera] member .,f the
Canadian house of commons. Tlie only
regrettable feature is that the Liberals
of   Kootenay,   disgusted   as   many    of
them   are,   can   be   brought   to   accept
such  a   situation   without a  protest.
It is inconceivable that ConsiTvativcs
should  ever sink  to such  a depth.    A
machine vote Is foreign alike to the
experience, Hie temperament und the
purpose of tho Conservative party. It
is the frequent comment of impartial
observers at Ottawa that while tin,
government ls absolutely  sure, on  any
division, of every vole labelled Liberal, Mr. Horden is not Infrequently
met with objections by his own supporters. There must occasionally lie honest differences   of  opinion   among men
who think. It is only men who have
abjured the habit of thinking that cun
always present an absolutely solid
Tlie  Conservatives  of   Koolenay   will
not nominate a Machine voter. They
win nominate, and, if the old Independent Canadian spirit ba not deud or
dormant in Kootenay. they will elect,
a man wilh brains and a conscience.
There is no dearth of such men available In Iho Conservative party. All
that ls required is the choice hy ihe
party and the organisation of the party's strength in every purt of the con-
Movement   to   Protect   Public   Against
Reckless Motorists.
Berlin. Kill. 20.���The question of regulating automobiles occasioned a most
animated debute In Ihe Relohstag yesterday, and called forth nn assurance
from the government Hint It would
bring In u bill laying down the most
slringent ruleB for the protection of
the  public.
llerr Nleberdlng, the Secretary of
State, said amid applause from nil sections of the house, lhat the bill had
been drawn up nnd wnB ready for In*
(reduction In the Uelchslag, making the
owners of autiuiioblles fully responsible
l.afaara. the civil courts for accident,
While negligent drivers would be sub-
Ji'cted, according lo Its provisions, to
the   severest   penalties,   including   lines
und Imprisonment,
t'liuiilfeurs,   henceforth will bflCOmpel-
led lo undergo u stringent examination
relative   to   He Ir   technical   knowledge
of motor cars and their trustworthiness
and   skill  as   drivers.
The question of road racing and noxious oalors will tie left to the decision
of  a   committee.
The government action has been induced by recent official statistics of auto mobile accidents in Germany, which
show that from October, 1906, until
October 1907, there were no fewer than
4,913 motor accidents, involving 145
deaths, and injuries to 2,419 persons,
half  of  these   occurlng  in   Berlin.
Suggested   Patience  and   Prayer to  the
Manager of a Bank.
Montreal. Feb. 20.���Local bankers are
greatly amused at the experience Mr.
I*S S. Clouston, general manager of the
Hank of Montreal, had during the recent   snowstorm.
Mr. Clouston and Mr. J. T. P. Knight,
secretary of the Bankers' Association,
left for Ottawa on some banking business. They expected to arrive in Ottawa at 12.15. The train made wild,
despairing leaps at the snow banks, and
along towaid 4 o'clock crawled, groaning into the station at Hudson, twenty-
four miles from Montreal. This was
slill some miles away froni Ottawa, and
despairing of ever getting there, Mr.
Clouston decided that he would take u
rise out of Sir Thomas Shaughnessy,
president of the C. P. H. Sir Thomas
was toasting his toes at the Montreal
Club when he was handed the following:
"Hudson���Stuck and starving. What
would you suggest? (Signed) Clous
Mr. Clouston was eating a metallic
sandwich made at some farmhouse
when he was handed the reply.
"Montreal���Patience and prayer,
I Signed) T. G. Shaughnessy."
The train was dtuj out of the snowbank   and   Mr.   Clouston   got   back   to
Montreal at 3 o'clock Sunday  morning,
having   covered   a total   of  forty-eight
miles in nineteen hours.

Ontario   Board  of  Health   Recommends
Enactment by Government of Very
Strict   Regulations.
Toronto, Feh. 20.���With a view of
fixing a standard for the supply of milk
for the entire province, and alao for
the purpose of ensuring a purer supply,
the Provincial Hoard of Health has
made several Important recommendations, which will be sent to the provincial secretary, and later will lie laid
before the house. The recommendations
are carefully prepared and cover a wide
range, and summarized are as follows:
All milk containing less than thirteen
per cent, of total solids, of whleh 3*54
per cent, must be chemically dry butter fat, must be deemed below the standard required when intended for human consumption.
All buildings for stabling cows must
have good drainage, and no building
used for dairy purposes must be within a hundred yards of any marshy or
stagnant water, etc.
The surroundings of all buildings
must be kept clean, and even the stable
yard must be drained. Stables for cows
must be used for no other purpose, not
even as storage places. Each cow must
be allowed 600 cubic feet of air space,
and cows are to be kept clean.
The report deals somewhat extensively with the interior arrangements of
stables, all tending towards cleanliness.
The cows from which milk is sold must
not include any diseased animals and
especially none showing signs of tuberculosis or any relative trouble. The
employment of the tuberculin test ls
recommended. Fodder and grain and
water must be especially free from contamination, and nothing must be fed
the cows which would affect the taste
or  character of the  milk.
Dealing with employees around stables, the report ls especially specific.
Employees must be clean ln habits and
free from contagious disease, even the
milkers' hands must not come ln contact with the milk, and only one pall
ls   allowed   each   milker.
After each cow Is  milked  the  milk
mt|st be taken to a milk house and
cooled to a temperature of 55 degrees
within two hours. No preservatives
or other stabstance shall be added to
the milk, and no part of the milk shall
be removed. The delivery of milk of
such a character must be sufficient
cause for Its exclusion from the municipality. The report deals exhaustively
with the care of vessels ln which milk
is kept or carried from place to place.
Even the drivers of wagons must be
free from contagious diseases. The col-
lecUon of empty bottles used in tRe
delivery of milk, or milk tlckeU from
any house where contagious disease
exists, must be made only after the
house has been fumigated and such bottles   sterilized.
In the Inspection of dairies the employment of the score-card system is

Spokane, Feb. 20.���Within the next

with the different labor unions will be
terminated shortly, recedes from its
According to advices from Grand
Junction, Col., the company will abrogate Its agreement with the engine-
men and trainmen on March 1 and on
March 14 will cancel Its wage agreement with the shopmen.
The different railroad unions have already met and agreed to send men to
Denver to hold a conference with officials of the Denver & Rio Grande, aud
an effort will be made to perfect wage
agreements with the railroad. Should
these efforts fall a strike may be declared on the Rio Grande    which muy
spread to ull thu lines of the Gould
The compnny at the presenl time Is
sal.l to have wage agreements with
the car repairers, machinist:,, boiler-
makers, blacksmiths, engineers, conductors und brakemen, which unions include practically all tho men employed
on railroad work. The members of the
various uuious hold that tho announcement of the abrogation of all agree*
ments means thut the company. In
view of tlie present flnauclul depression, is seeking to luko an udvuntuge
an*| decline for the open shop at a
time when men as a rule will think
twice before quitting work.
Employes ln the Denver & Rio
Grande shops at Denver held a meeting on Saturday night and Instructed
tho delegates of their unions to confer
with the oflicers of tho road concerning
the posting of notices last week to tho
effect that on Mnrch 14 all union agreements would come to an end. The
claim ls made thnt the company hus
vlolutod their agreement in failing to
