Jealousy at the Coast Will
•   Prevent His Appointment.
Toronto, Dec. 26.—[Special to
the NelBon Tribune.]—Cabinet rep-
resentation fo'r British Columbia
has been about as good as defeated.
A few unheard of politicians in
Vancouver may be held responsible'
for this- Tfjey have been representing that if the portfolio does
not go to Vancouver it should not
be given at all. The old story of
the Mainland and Island squabble,
and the evil that'would follow if
Templeman got it, are ali made to
do duty to thwart the will of the
great majority of the whole province who are anxious for cabinet
recognition. As it is impossible to
pass over the superior claims of
Templeman the province will have
to wait until some Mainland politician of cabinet rank springs to
the front. Dean, of Kamloops,
who is here, says that the province
generally iB infavor of Templeman,
and laughs at opposition which is
being quietly urged against him.
All the delicacies of   the season
can be found at the Kootenay. tf

Xmas Day Festivities--A
Small Police   Slate
This Morning.
Christmas day in Rossland passed off agreeably enough and it is a
fact worth recording that there was
only one person for the police magistrate to deal with this morning, a
man who got simply "too full for
utterance" yesterday.
There were a few scraps around
town on Xmas eve and last night
but the day passed off without any
serious trouble such as might have
been expected under the circumstances.
The Odd Fellows held their annual ball in Miners' Union hall last
evening and it proved a very successful affair.
There were any number of private dinner parties (about the city,
and the Kootenay and the Windsor
hotels had special bills of fare for
the occasion, and were very well
patronized.
R. S. Lyon, now of Ymir, is
spending the holidays here. Bob
says he is a RosBland man first,
last and always.
A small silver watch was lost
yesterday between Dr. Senior's residence and Trail along the Trail
road. Finder please report to this

CITY ACCOUNTS.
The draft statement ol the civic
accounts handed to the Wobld by
Mayor Lalonde, showing thc receipts and expenditures for the
year up to December 1st is puV>
lished at length in this issue.
We are informed that, the full
official statement will appear
shortly after the commencement of
the New Year, but the accounts
published today will afford intending vomers an opportunity of studying the figures given and interrogating candidates for municipal
honors at the forthcoming election
as to their views on several important matters as disclosed by by the
statement.
During the year people as so
much engaged with other matterB
that the weekly deliberations of the
city fatherB and their subsequent
actions are of ten allowed to pass
with but scant attention. Voters
who desire to study the subject of
municipal finance will persue the
document given them today with
interest.
The World will have something
to say on the subject at a later
date.
THE SITUATION.
The mine managers here and the
superintendent at Northport may
pnblish glowing accounts of the
number of first tslass men now
working, of record runs being made
and generally of the excellent results being attained by non union
labor, but the union men are very
well aware of the real facts of the
case.
Manager Macdonald's figures for
the LeRoi No. 2's record for Nov-
vember as published in the English papers tell their own tale and
they show tLat the cost of production was approximately $11.60 per
ton. Compare this with the statement credited by Mr. Mackintosh
to the new manager of the Le Roi,
Mr. Mackenzie, wherein that gentleman declares that the cost
Bhould not exceed $7.50 per ton
and might be reduced to $7 per
ton, or Mr. Frecheville's statement,
that for the future the cost of production should not exceed .9 per
ton under any circumstances.
The figures given show at leasl
a part oi the cost of fighting the
union, but they by no means show
it all as the suffering shareholders
will learn later on.
Mr. Mackenzie and Mr. Szontagh
must know whether the results attained so far are satisfactory or the
reverse and the outside public may
be certain that while every favorable feature possible will be brought
to the front nothing will be said
about matters perfectly well known
and understood by the the union
executive.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The total number of persons employed in and about all mines in
the United Kingdom at the end of
the century exeeeded 800,000, a
rise of half a million persons in
50 years.
vocates of the union label. They
are flooding British Columbia with
literature relative to broom industry, according to which the brooms
used in this province are mostly of
American make or prison manufactured. What they want trade-
unionists to do is to see that the
union label is on the brooms they
purchase.
Asthma (Sure Free!
Unionism knows no creed, is
wedded to no political belief, nor
will it tolerate either. Its teachings are for the betterment of conditions, and every intelligent man
who has given the matter thorough
consideration is a union man. We
do not say that every union man
is the most intelligent in the community, but we do assert that he
becomes so by his association. He
is a better citizen and workman for
being a unionist.—Chronicle.
Last week the Trout Lake Topic
administered a much deserved rebuke to the "pessimistic blatherskites" of this province, a rebuke
with which the Eagle can heartily
concur. As the Topic says the
history of but "one camp" is evidence enough that mining in this
province is not drifting hellward,
as that sheet afflicted with chronic
dry gripes—the Rossland Miner-
would have the world believe."
There may be much room for improvement in the situation, but the
belly-aching mine owners must
confine more of their attention to
mining than to politics if the improvement is to be effected.—Lardeau Eagle.
The Grand Forks News occasionally goes into hysterics. In its
last issue it says the credit of the
province is gone, its industries
languishing,its railways the laughing stock of the world, and its
name a bye-word on the streets
of London. Still, with less than
150,000 white people—about one-
half the population of the city of
Montreal—the province supports
forty branches of chartered banks,
all paying expenses. If the province is in the condition the News
says it is, the banks would be
scurrying to get beyond its boundaries like rats from a doomed
ship. But they are not doing this.
Instead, they are establishing
more branches. Thai the business
men of Briliih Columbia are doing
as well as those in any other
province in Canada is borne out
by the fact that the percentage of
failures is the lowest of any of the
provinces, and the losses paid by
fire insurance companies the lowest
of any province in Canada or state
in the United States. If everything
was going to the dogs,business men
would be failing and fire insurance companies would be adjusting
loses. It will be admitted that the
Dunsmuir government has not
been a howling success, but it has
not given a dollar of public money
or an acre of public domain to further the interests of the charter-
mongering and subsidy-hunting
gang that is praying for its overthrow.—Nelson Tribune.

There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings instant relief, even in tbe
worst casea. It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa
Eidge, 111., says: "Your trial bottle 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 thro it
and Asthma lor ten yeurs. I de. paired
ol ever being cured. I saw your advertisement for the cure of this dreadful
and tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you bad overspoken yourselves,
but resolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like a
chatm.   Send me a full size bottle."

Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy f >r Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates
all troubles which combine with Asthma.     Its  success   is   astonishing and

After having it carefully analysed, we can state that Asthmalene conta'ns no
opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.   Very truly yours,

Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. 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 see your sign upon your windows on
130th street, New York, I at once obiiired a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottU her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtomu. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D  PHELPS, M. D.

Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, but they have all failed, I ran across your advertisement and started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your full
