The Walker appointment has
stirred up a great deal of feeling in
Rossland.
Yesterday a petition against the
appointment was hurriedly drawn
up and circulated around town, It
obtained very many signatures during the afternoon and evenin".
Telegrams by the score were sent
in to the government by different
disgusted persons, and generally
an earnest effort was made to Stop
the appointment.
It must be made clear, however,
that the opposition referred to
came from various sections of the
"very best element." The labor
people have taken no steps, whatever, to prevent Mr. Walker from
enjoying the spoils of office. They
eay they look upon the appointment as the natural outcome of
ring rule, and believe that unless
steps are taken to prevent it the
appointment of ex-Chief Ingram
and several other Tammany Hall
tactics, will be resorted to as a
matter of course.
No one has so far been discovered
who is willing to assume the responsibility of the Walker appointment. It is understood that the
mayor repudiates the whole matter,
and says he had nothing to do with
it. Won't his worship tell us who
did the job?
The strangest thing about the
whole matter is the difficulty in
finding any one who is at all willing to approve of the government's
selection of Frank J. Walker. The
condemnation is almost universal,
and under such very peculiar circumstances, it seems incredible
that the appointee can be willing
to accept the position.
Mr. Walker is, of course, very
open to attack, as he himself must
very well know, and if he accepts
the position he must expect exceedingly frank criticisms of himself and his past record in Rossland.
The Miner's definition of a wide-
open town "a locality where crime
and criminals of all sorts are the
paramount factors" should open
the eyeb of "tolerant" people, as to
what is in store for Rossland. Vancouver turned down the wide-open
town ticket. Spokane and Seattle
wilh the aid of tbe city papers are
doing the same thing. New York
is being cleaned up, and othercitieB
all over this continent are doing
the same thing.
Shall Rossland be a wide-open
town, governed by ring rule or not?

Many Roesland Liberals appear
to be greatly dissatisfied with the
internal management of the local
Liberal association.
A prominent member of the
party who attended the last meeting of the association, when delegates were selected to attend the
coming Liberal convention at
Vancouver, states that, although
there are 60 members of the association in this city, only some
eighteen were present at the meeting.
The same gentleman asserts that
no notice of the meeting was sent
out to the members, and that the
meeting was literally a hole and
corner one.
Dr. Sinclair, says the Liberal in
question, had exactly eleven votes
to his credit as a delegate to the
Vancouver convention, and if the
meeting had been regularly and
properly called, the doctor would
not have been selected at all.
The Liberal asserts, that a great
deal of bad feeling has arisen
over the way matters have been
handled, and he asserts that unless a regular meeting is called
and the matter thrashed out, that
there will be a rupture in the
party ranks.
The Rossland Liberal association has run a peculiar course of
late and it will be interesting to
follow its next few steps.

Three Cur Accidents u Daj.
Chicago, Jan. 31.—Wilmerding

third traction car accident within
12 hours, the result of icy rails.
A car ran away on the steep incline and jumped over a thirty
foot embankment. The inotorman,
the conductor and tho one passenger on the car escaped death by
jumping. All were painfully, but
not seriously injured.
The lengthy oross examination
of Whitaker Wright oovering his
share of the particular financial
transactions connected with the
London and Globe and other similar undertakings, commenoed in
earnest in London on the 15th inst,
before the registrar.
For two days Mr. Wright has
been subjected to the torture.and it
must be confessed that clever financier as he is, he haB been forced to
make a most damaging lot of admissions.
Lack of space forbids that a sum •
mary, however brief, should appear
in these columns.of the story dragged from the Loudon Stock jobber,
but a couple of items can be referred to with profit.
Whitaker Wright told tbe receiver that prior to   1898 he had allotted    shares to certain   leading
financial papers, whenever a   company wasputon the market,but that
such a scandal had come   of the
matter that be refused  to do this
any more.   The new plan   as disclosed can hardly be said to be  an,
improvement on the  old,   out -it
worked out this   way—taking one
instance out  of   many.   A large
block of shares  waB   sold   by   the
London and   (llobe's   brokers   to
another broker, and   immediately
repurchased   by  the  London and
Globe at an advanced   figure—the
profit in this particular   instance
(and the loss   to the  London and
Globe)  being   $45,000.   The purchasing broker in the case, "represented" a gentleman who, in turn,
"represented" a  London financial
paper, and the net profit made  by
this very simple transaction,   after
due payment of a modest   commission to the fortunate broker, went
to the newspaper   representative.
Mr.  Wright said this large sum
was   not   given   for   "puffs"   but
merely for "publicity" and he modestly declined to defend the morality of this,   and   of   several   other
similar tranactions merely claiming
that it was|"the  custom,"  whereupon the  court   jumped   on   the
witness and Baid  that waB no defence whatever.
The transaction referred to was
merely one of several others of the
same category and the figures involved are enough to make an
ordinary man's head swim.
Book keeping and official balance sheets appear to be almost
Whitaker Wright's specialty. In
the case of one company—a
sample case only—when it became
necessary to make out a balance
sheet with a good showing of "cash
on band" this simple method was
adopted. Mr. Wright "loaned"
the company $500,000 on the security of some "valuable" shares
the day before the balance sheet
came out and the $500,000 figured
as "cash" in hand. The day after,
however, Mr. Wright was repaid
his loan and the company received
back the valuable security.
The laboring class who do not
at present readily grasp the way
in which thousands and thousands of dollars arc passed from
hand to hand by honest and hard
working capitalists,  should study

THAT COMMISSIONER.
The appointment of Frank J.
Walker as police and license commissioner by the provincial government—acting on the advice of
some person or persons resident in
Rossland at present unknown— appears to have created such a feeling of antagonism, that it is hoped
Mr. Walker will decline the great
honor offered to him.
As stated by the Would yesterday, it was presumed that the appointment was suggested by His
Worship Mayor Clute, but we understand that Mr. Clute repudiates
all responsibility for the selection,
and if he does so repudiate the
transaction, we can quite well understand why he does so.
If it was not Mr. Clute who suggested Mr. Walker for the dual
position, who was it? Governments, however slack in their
methods, do not make such appointments without being duly advised to do so by some local authority. We dare any public man in
Rossland who values his reputation
amongst his fellow-citizens at all,
to come out and state op inly that
he advised the appointment, and is
prepared to answer to the citizens
at large for what he has done.
If Mayor Clnte does in good truth
repudiate the responsibility for the
government's selection, he should
intimate to the authorities that if
the appointment iB persisted in he
will feel bound to resign his position as mayor of Rossland, as it iB
his worship's own friends and supporters who are objecting most
strenuously to Mr. Walker's appointment.
Alderman Hamilton, if he desires to retain the good will of the
bulk of Rossland citizens in any
shape, should decline to accept bis
appointment, and.he can greatly
help the movement, for "clean,
honest, conservative city government," by so doing.
What everyone wants to know at
present is, who  recommended Mr.
. Walker to the government? Won't
the gentlemen confeBB, or are they
honestly frightened to do so?
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
"Law and co-operation have ever
been the conditions of life; anarchy
and competition the conditions of
death."—Ruskin.
The northern papers of the province are making the most of the
Horsefly project and booming the
scheme for all it is worth—and a
great deal more.
Mr. Walker must be immensely
gratified at the spontaneous way
in which his appointment has
been received by "citizens" and
the rest of the community.
Copper was quoted at 122 at the
close of the board in New York
yesterday and all the indications
point to a continued rise. This is
very good news for the Kootenay.
"A labor paper is a far better advertising medium than an ordinary
newspaper in comparison to circulation. A labor paper, for example, having 5000 subscribers, is of
more value to the buBines man
who advertises in it than an ordinary paper with 10,000."—Printers
Ink.
There is always a fly in the oint-
juient.   At the very moment of his
greatest triumph Signor Marconi's
girl gives him the mitten. If he
reflects, however, that Jove, the
original wielder of the lightning,
had frequent ill luck in his love
affairs, he may find matter of comfort.—Toronto Globe.
Thanks to the energetic action of
a portion of the Toronto press, the
iniquituous settlement recently
made between the corporation of
that city and the Consumers GaB
company has been set aside and
the bribe of "sixty cent gas" will
now no longer prevent the";the whole
question of the GaB company's
methods being opened up in the
courts.
Canada is a good thing. Her
traue for the past Bix months
amounted $213,010,000 which is
at the ra!e of about $426,000,000
for the current year, if the next
six mouths pan out as well. The
entire trade for Canada for theyear
1889 was only $204,000,000. While
the trade has increased to that extent in a dozen years, the population has only increased about half
a million, therefore, the per capita
wealth of the Canadian people may
be considered to have doubled
in a dozen years—Ottawa Citizen.
A dispatch from Wellington, N.
Z., to the London Times illustrates
the effects of the antagonism of
Great Britain which has become so
pronounced on the European continent. It says a patriotic meeting, attended by thousands of persons, has passed resolutions approving Great Britain's conduct of
the war in South Africa and Mr.
Chamberlain's refutation of foreign slanders. The mention of
Mr. Chamberlain's name evoked
cheers. At a reference to "noble,
loyal Canada" the people rose and
cheered. One speaker declared
that if Germany was an enemy of
England, she was an enemy of
New Zealand. The colony would
send its last man to end the Boer
war by enforcing unconditional
surrender.

There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings instant, relief, even in the
worst cases. It cures when nil else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, ol Villa
Ridge, 111., says: "Your trial botile of
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for the good derived from it, I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore throat
and Asthma ior ten years. I despaired
of ever being cured. I saw your advertisement for the cure of this dreadful
nnd tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you had overspoken yourselves,
but retolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like a
chaim.    Send mc a full size bottle."

Dr. Taft Bros. MeBtcine Co.
Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Astbma. My wife has been
afflicted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted my own
skill as well as many others, I chanced to eee your sign upon your windows on
130th street, New York, I at once obuired a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using ont bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely tree from all symtome. I feel tnat I can coneistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.

RURAL ENGLAND
What J. W. Martin's New
*- 4     '
Book Shows.
A STARTLING PICTURE OF RUIN
Black Outlook for the Farming Class
in the Old  Country—Values
Disappeared.
J. W. Martin, in a book entitled
"The Ruin of Rural England," just
issued, telle a startling story of devastation in England. He says, in
part:
"The rural districts are poorly
cultivated by a slovenly class of
men, who have neither the brains
nor the capital to farm them properly; or are worked by men of capital and business ability who admit
that they make no progress in material prosperity, and that the game
is not good enough for tbeir sons to
embark in.
Farmers, as a class, are known
to be afllicted by a chronic state of
poverty, and the agricultural returns show that the capital invested in the industry decreases
year by year. There are farms
without sheep, farms without cattle
or pigs, farms that are undermanned and underhorsed, with
overgrown hedges and ditches filled
in, and arable lands chiefly remarkable for their splendid crops of
twitch and thistles. The down of
the latter in the month of August
may be seen blowing all over the
country like a snowstorm.
The sturdy sons of the villages
have fled. They have left behind
the old men, the lame, the mentally
deficient, the vicious, and the born
tired. But to be quite fair, there
is also a remnant of hardy,
honest fellows who prefer green
fields and sunshine to the dirty
alums of a busy city.
The self-supporting character of
the villages iB gone. The tradesmen who thrived on a numerous
population have grown poorer as
trade has fallen off. The corn and
cattle are now sent to neighboring
towns in larger proportion; tho
money paid in wages returns not to
the farmer, but it is used by local
tradesmen in the purchase of on-
ported goods, obtained from the
neighboring towns.
Farmhouses, buildings, and cottages are rapidly going to pieces,
especially farm buildings and cottages. In many cases their ownerB
no longer have the money to spend
in keeping them up. Many have
fallen down and will never be rebuilt; and aB the buildings and
cottages, with their inhabitants,dis-
appear, the land goes out of cultivation.
The rural districts are so poverty-
stricken that tbey are not available for increased taxation; they
are already overburdened and any
additional burden can only deplete
and impoverish them still further.
Neither are their inhabitants in
any numbers available for national
defence. The wealth and population of the villages are national
asr>ets that have disappeared.
Agricultural land is regarded as
the worBt possible investment for
spare capital. Landlords advertise their farms in vain, and money
which cannot find profitable investment at home is invested in foreign
lands, railways, and mines, which
compete with home industries to
the disadvantage of the homeland.
And the value of the land has depreciated to the extent of from fifty
to eighty per cent."
THE HANDY MAN who professes
to know a little of everything should not
be permitted to fool with the electrical
apparatus. He gets things tangled up.

STOCK MARKETS
Business Still Good on the
Rossland Market.
CENTRE STAR IS IMPROVING
The Latest Quotations and Sales
Locally and on tho Toronto
Market.
While the sales today were not
as heavy as yesterday, business
was good. The total number of
shares changing hands amounted
to 12,500. Centre Star opened at
43^c and closed at 43c, the highest
price reached being 44c. A small
parcel of War Eagle sold at 13c
one of Mountain Lion at 28c and
one of Rambler-Cariboo at 84c, all
being compromise prices. Winnipeg sold at 5o.
The market for Cariboo Camp
McKinney continues firm at 32c
in Toronto. There are strong
signs of reviving faith in this old
standby and there is an untraceable rumor to the effect that a
dividend is likely.

asking for a raise of fifty cents a
day in wages or making any other

The semi-final match for the
President's Cup between the rinks
of T. Gray and J. Lawn resulted,
after a severe struggle, in favor of
the former, leaving T. S. Gilmour
and T. Gray to play off for the
trophy.
The match was intently watched by a large number of spectators,
and thc score wag tied at the sixth
und eight ends. On the ninth end
Lawn was two up, but Gray won
the tenth end with three, and secured one more at the eleventh,
leaving the score 13 to 11, on the
final end. Before Lawn's Bret stone
the match looked lost, but a magnificent shot left Lawn an even
game. A beautifully placed stone
by Gray completely altered the aa
pect of the rink, and Lawn failing
to improve matters left the game
to the former, by a score of 15 to 11.
