toward the new French government

IcuBt bourn of having won it flue dinner ut the Suvoy hotel, where their ad-
nilrum gave a dinner in their honor.
With the exception of a Biirinkliug
of strong-minded, desperately earnest
leiiilnlB'tR, tlle Company were as gay,
gorgeously apparelled and bejewelled
us any In a West Und drawing room,
unsl the consciousness of their charuiB
wus as apparenl.
Tho president, the learned poUUoal
economist, Mrs. Kaweett, whom the
loastniltster described as "Madam, the
chairman," sparkled with rubles and
diamonds. In the course of iter speech
she declared tlle sull'iilgettes hud done
nosh.ns; sensational, adding, sho understood the newspapermen al ttteir
meetings grumbled at this, saying that
IJ thoy would only stand on their
hoatls they would have something to
write ahout. She thought tho result of
ihe agitation could be summed up in
the words of a lady who said to her:
"I was lukewarm before.   I am boiling
now.    What can 1 do?"
Blitabetb Kobins toasted the ex-prisoners in an excellent speech, the kernel of which was that it was better
that the words Bhould be spoken than
stand still. The parliamentary vote,
she said, was the wurkingmeu's best
weapon, and is2 per cent, of the women
of Great llrltaln were working women.

Jeffries  Will   Have  Chance  to  Knock
Out Two in One Day.
New York, Dec. 19.���According to
the Herald today, Tex Kickards, the
Nevadau fight promoter, announced
last night his willingness to give a
?5U,0UU purse for a Boniewhat novel
battle, with James J. Jeffries, champion of the world, as the central figure. Kickards wants Jeffries to fight
1'iiiladeiphia Jack O'Brien and Tommy
Burn* to a finish In one ring un the
same day, the events to take place at
tioldlielsls, Nev., early in May.
"From what 1 have been able to
gather on my trip through the Kast
and West," said Kickards, "the Bport-
Ing public is quite satisfied that Hunts
or O'Brien has no chance individually
against Jeffries. They believe, however, that buth uf them wuuld cause
the big fellow to expend himself in one
day, so I have decided to try and give
the public what it wants."
"1 will hang up a purse of $50,000
Tor Uie event and the fighters can divide It as tliey see fit. Now it's up to
Jeff., O'Brien and Burns to meet aud
sign articles of agreement. It do not
think Jerfrles can have much cause
for complaint. He is a big, powerful
man and ai- the champl-ju 1 don't see
how lie can refuse the offer if Burns
nnd O'Biien are willing."

Survey Party Narrowly Escapes Death
in Storm.
A remarkably close call ls recorded
from Cowlehan lake, where O. Kenneth
Gillespie, John Hirs-h, P. L. S., and a
party were engaged In surveying the
islands in that expanse of water. Until Wednesday last the surveyors were
housed in a little log house at the head
of the lake, hut on that day Mr. Hirsch
gave orders that tlte men were to go
under canvas at a point which was
considerably nearer to the Bcene of
their work.
After some demur at the change
these orders were- executed and the
tents reared In a different location,
lhe same night the big storm which
caused so much damage throughout
the Island came on, and hundreds of
trees were blown down near the lake
shore. The party, encamped near the
head of the lake, did not spend the
night In great comfort, and there was
a (general )expresslc*n of dissajtlsfao
tion at the turn of events which had
made them exchange the solid shelter
of the log hut for thc less substantial
tents. Next murning these feelings
underwent a revulsion, for it was discovered that a large tree had fallen
on the recently deserted log hut and
had entirely demolished It. Every
member of the party felt Indirectly
thankful to Mr. Hirsch and looked upon their escape as most fortunate.

Ottawa, Dec. lit.���A good deal has
been said about the latest land deal, by
which 380,573 acres of rich farm land
in Alberta has been sold to some
friends of the government, who In
their turn are transferring them to an
English company. The prospectus of
the last mentioned company shows
that the nominal price received by the
government Is $3 an acre. But this
is subject to a deduction If the cost
of irrigation works Up to |2 an acre,
so that the actual amount paid Is only
$1 an acre. The first payment ou this
|1 ls not to be made until July, 1S10,
and It is intended that tbc land will
he sold to farmers at from jr, to $25
an acre long before that time.
The prospectus states on the authority of J. B. SaunderB, lately ln the em-
p'oy of the Dominion government, that
the land is first claBS. with heavy
black loam, producing luxuriant grasses, and the company claims lhat the
land is suitable for wheat, fodder
crops, vegetables and small fruits, and
particularly calculated for the growth
of sugar beets. Mr. Saunders reports
that the company may reasonauly expect to sell the irrigated lands for $20
to tv, an acre, aud tlie non-irrigable
land lu tract A at flO to $15, and in
tract B at $5 to JIO. They expect to
receive an average price of $23 an acre
lor s5,tuio acres, $20 an acre for 50,000
acres, $12.50 for 59,000 acres, and $5
aa acre for 186,000 acres. Altogether
they look for over - $5,000,000, wwhile
the cost to them will be after the land.
is irrigated, less than $3,000,000.
What happens seems to be this: The
Grand Forks Cattle company, which
includes Mr. Hitchcock, who long ago
got on the right side of Mr. Sifton,
und J. D. McOregor, formerly a campaign worker in Brandou, afterward a
government official in the Yokon, and
more recently the recipient of valuable leases. This company got 10,000
acres along with IU grazing lease for
$1 an acre. It claims to have spent
$300,000 on the ranch property and has
turned over the assets for $615,000, by
which tt appears that $376,000 was obtained for what cost $10,000 a year before. Then in June of this year Mr.
Hitchcock organized a company called
the Robins irrigation company, which
seems to be seven-ninths Hitchcock
and two-ninths McOregor. It was this
concern that bought from the government the 380,573 acres at $1 per acre
net, aud nothing to pay for four years.
This purchase was made on June 26
and on September 16 the benefit of
the contract was sold to the promoters
of Ihe English company for ��100.000
sterling, or $496,01)0, without Mr. Hitchcock or Mr. McOregor having spent
one scent ln thuj transaction beyond
promotion expenses.
lt would appear, therefore, that Mr.
Hitchcock. Mr. McOregor and any other persons who may be associated
won them but whose names arc kept
out of sight, have made $861,000 within a little over a year by simply obtaining two grants and a lease from
thc Dominion government and selling
them out. After this Is done the com-
I any to which they have heen sold and
of which they ure directors expects to
make 100 per cent, on Its outlay. The
people of Canada from whom the land
was taken at $1 an acre, many of
whom will buy it back at 10 to 20
t'mes that price, ought to come tn

Under the weighty pressure "f recent circumstances tbe Ottawa government bas at laat awakened to the
Imperative necessity for such legislation as will proteel the public in case
of disputes between employers and
coal minerB on questions affecting
Iheir respective interests. The announcement has been made thai late
lust week Hon. Rodolphe bemieux
gavq no ice of bis intention to Introduce a bill which shall have for iis object the prevention of strikes and lock
outs in coal mines* The Introduction
of such a bill al (his late hour is a
���tribute rather to ihe persistence of
those who are fully seized of the Importance "I having some legal protection for the interests of the public than
to the readiness of the Laurier government to bring into effect legislation which lutein al some time embarrass their political friends, Tho recent strike at Fernie. whicli not only
thaatened but actually projected a fuel
famine trom which (he homes of the
Country have not yet recovered, and
whicli dove the smelter companies to
tm far afield for (he supply of coke
necessary to the carrying on of their
Industries, made no impression whatever ujhjii the Ottawa authorities. Nor
do the serious losses suffered by both
lhe company and the miners in thai
unfortunate and unnecessary incident
s_em to be present as a factor in the
arguments now being   used   to impel
the governmenl to enact legislation
which will preclude the possibility of n
recurrence of such affairs.    The Inter
ests of lirltlsh Columbia are as com-
pletly cut off from the sympathies of
the Ottawa administration as the chain
of mountains separates this province
from the eastern section of the -Dominion.
When the prairies are touched, however, the seriousness of the situation
strikes home. The Eastern papers are
full of the matter and the leading political journals have editorials yards
long in which they learnedly set forth
the duties of the government in matters so serious as the famine and suffering threatening the prairie population, And when the solid contingent
of prairie members knock ominously
ut the door of the house of commons
we find a tardy disposition to give
some consideration to the righteous demands of the people. Thus the unhappy inference must be drawn that until
voles are in danger and the Liberal
majority of the house is in jeopardy
the rights of Ihe people are a small
thing in the estimate of the government.
Even now, with the prospect of tho
introduction of some sort of legislative measure To meet, or perhaps to
shelve, the case. It Is interesting to
note the successive steps in evasion
which have delayed the matter for so
long, The people uf the prairies
through deputations and various representations to the house of commons,
prayed the government of Kir Wilfrid
to take some steps to end the unfortunate Btrlke at Lethbrldge, To all of
these appeals* Sir Wilfrid replied that,
It was none of his affair. It was not,
according to Sir Wilfrid, the function
of a government to interfere in labor
disputes. When the house met, however, and Mr. John Herron, the member for Alberta, Interrogated the government and urged thai steps be taken
to obviate a recurrence of such difficulties, Sir Wilfrid's ministers replied
that the chief difficulty was through
luck of transportation. The railways
were to blame. The conflict between
fhe opposing forces of organized labor
and stubborn capital were not reco-
Dlzed as u factor in the country's
I am ine.
Now thai W. L. Mackenzie King,
deputy minister of labor, an appointee
of the government, has heen over tho
field and hns become seized of tho
problems that confront the country, he
has ventured to make certain recommendations, the result of which will he
the introduction of the hill promised
by Mr. Lemieux. No pressure put upon the government could he effective,
no marshalling of the evidence of tbe
country's danger and suffering could
arouse any Interest. Nut until a deputy minister of the government wns
ready to recommend some active Interference between man and masters,
and the government profess tu act upon its own inlative could it see matters
in true light. Even Mr. Kings recommendations are extremely non-committal, and if they may be taken as any
Indication of the nature of thc bill to
be introduced the proposed legislation
will be weak and Ineffective.    He says:
"It would appear that if legislation
can be devised which, without encroaching upon the recognized rights
of employers und employees, will at
tlie same time protect the public, tbe
slate would be justified In enacting
any measure which will make a strike
or a lockout in coal mines impossible,
Such au end It would appear might be
achieved, at least in part, were provision made whereby, as in the case of
the railway labor disputes act, all
Questions in dispute might be referred
to a board empowered to conduct an
investigation, under oath, with additional features perhaps that such rof-
fi rence should not be optional, bill, obligatory, and pending investigation and
until the board has issued its finding
the parties would he restrained on pain
Of heavy penalty from declaring a lockout or strike."
Whatever may be the nature of the
new bill, it cannot but be a step in the
right direction. Any law which will
enable the government to exert pressure upon contending parties by right
of law and without the voluntary consent necessary under the present provisions, will at least open the door for
authorized mediation. Driven thus to
heed the voice of the country we shall
watch with interest to see how far the
government of Sir Wilfrid will go in
such legislation as will infringe the alleged or fancied rights of its tenacious
friends the coal barons.
The violent conduct of the suffragettes in London, their invasion of the
precincts of the house of commons aud
tbelr persistence iu committing breaches of tbe peace, with the resultant
sentence to the common gaol, are all
so many humiliating features of a crusade which in one age or another has
engaged the sympathies of the best of
both     sexes. Whatever     may     he
woman's claim to a share in lhe exercise of the franchise which determines the character of a nation's laws,
these masculine antics of gentle
womanhood will scarcely hasten the
day when men will feel constrained to
Commit the sacred privilege to those
wbo love a spectacular demonstration
Of Iheir readiness to defy the law. It
will be admitted, we suppose, that
these notoriety-hunting adventuresses
represent the advance guard of tlie
woman suffrage advocates, possessing,
as they do, the iron will, the vanity
aud egotism which have ever been the
distinguishing characteristics of the
would-be martyr iu a cheap cause.
Does it not occur lhal these advanced
representatives of the suffrage movement are but betraying what their
conduct would be in the event of a
miscarriage in the effect of their ballots? In other words, would they���in
the event of any measure for which
the female suffrage party marshalled
their whole array, failing to become
law���any more peace-loving and law-
abiding Ihan tbey are now? We trow
not. What woman will do to express
ber disgust at the refusal of tho ballot woman will do to express her dls-
fgUSt at the result of the ballot in case
thut result should he against either
her convictions or her  foibles.
While it must be admitted that many
desirable measures would become law
in the event or the granting of the
ballot to womankind, such as more
drastic temperance legislation and other measures that are theoretically in
the Interest of the public, we should
only discover the more quickly that
when legislation travels too far ahead
of public BOnttmenl the results nro evil
and not good. Besides, the Intemperance of these women and their utter
defiance of the laws of tho country,
as well of those of feminine propriety,
ts ut best a poor recommendation to
the tender mercies of the gentle sex.
While there Is much to go said in favor of granting the franchise to women
tbe example or Ihese misguided heroines will scarcely Increase the enthusiasm of (hose who labor to this end-
These self-Imprisoned martyrs will eat
their Christmas puddings In the quiet
corridors of tho gaols buoyed up probably by their vanity, but the flippant
world as well as the serious world will
scarce give them a thought. Not oven
the fact lhat most of them are well
bred and have plenty of money will
redeem their actions from the contempt In which for the moat purt these
will bo held.
The information as to grazing leases
which was elicited yesterday in the
house of commons under Ilu* interpellation of Mr. Ames will startle even
the ardent defenders of Oliver's administration, The provisions bu* cancellation of these leases, as secured under
government statute, seems tu have
been utterly ignored. The purpose of
Sifion's temporary repeal uf the saving .clause is now doubly apparent
and a more shameless betrayal of public rights has probably never been witnessed in Canada. The Laurier admin
lstfation Is proving itself to be hopelessly  rotten nnd corrupt.
The government of British Columbia
did not sell Kaien island for ten thousand dollars, as is affirmed by the
snuggling and gasping morning organ.
Kaien island was sold for $U),(HIU plus
one-fourth the speculative, Intrinsic or
commercial value it may now or at
any future time possess through the
exploitation by the G, T. P. if Uu*
island is worth many millions, then
the province owns one-quarter of the
millions. Any attempt to make it appear otherwise is puerile nnd childish
and  will fool no one.
We have carefully examined the in-
trenehments of the government after
the furious bombardment hy our violent cotem. of Vernon street, aud confess that we can detect no evidences
of disintegration anywhere. All shots
are at too long a range, badly aimed
and creating more smoke than havoc.
Now that criticism ol lie government's
tecord Is reduced lo discussion of caucuses about which statements are
mere hazards, the threatened danger
has   become  insignificant.
Dibs, have fixed dates for the election again. In the meantime, "How
many days will elapse, etc." Guess

Accommodating Experts.
"Do you want a favorable report, an
unfavorable report or an honest report?" This was the question asked
of a local financial house which desired a mining engineer to examine a Cobalt property. The iuterence was that
an "expert" could be got who would,
for a consideration, furnish any estimate of the property tbat might be demanded, The firm might desire a favorable report on which to sell the
claim, an unfavorable report on which
to buy It, or they might require a true
estimate of the actual worth of the
property. They could obtain any one
of the three. The engineer could visit
the property and discover data to suit
any one of the three propositions.���Toronto NewB.

evening each week for the rest of The
season, with a change of bill each
week, The first engagement is for Lhe
evening of January 2.
The opera house was again filled lasi
night to witness the changed program
In the performance of McEwen the
magician. Florence McEwen as a soloist eclipsed herself, and rendered her
selections very sweetly, while Joe Aller brought out roars of laugh*-?, with
Ires h jokes. In the sleight of hand
performances McEwen was not less
mystifying ihan on the previous evening, and his versatility as a conjurer
is astonishing. The two social features of the program were the great
Asiatic transformation scene and the
hypnotic exhibition, which closed the
program. This evening a class of well
known citizens is arranging to go on
the stage and submit to the professor's hypnotic power. Mr. McKwen
usually closes his series of entertainments with an exhibit of this kind, and
II usually proves to b'e the mosl humorous feature of the whole show,

The next musical treat in store for
Nelson is the appearance of the deservedly famous Polmatler Sisters on
New Year's eve. Their performance
will be given in the armoury under
the auspices of the local com pan v of
the K. M. K., and will be followed by
the company's annual bail. Press notices of tbe Polmatler Sistera are invariably favorable, but they are already known in Nelson, having played
to an (appreciative audience here *_i
year ago. The five sisters, Helerie,
Phyllis, lna, Pauline and Uisebu, are
all instrumental artists, as well as ao-
oompUahed vocalists. They art- easily
superior lo any similar organisation on
the continent.
