/riie Mayor gave a list of,,the salaries now paid by the city', and said
it totaled the astonishing sum of
$799 per month,. He proposed to
remedy this by "cutting doen ihr- police, force'and' aboHshinb the city
solicitor and hiring somebody'at ?35
per month to run the justice mill,
known as the police court. Tho cily
could buy legal advice in tho open
niarkce, and the chief ol police and
the fire chief could be rolled up in
tnc. suit.of blue clothes, The lucky
fellow wlio drew the suit could be
paiil'$i25 or $150, and'still the tity
l.*o nliend. The jailer conl'd be turned
out to grass and. the city prisoners
turned over1 to the province.
Uy practicing this kind of pruning
he .staled thnt the city could save n
sum equal lo $3,750 in the year,
which sum, if invested in beautifying
tho streets, would greatly add to the
value of tlio city.

'awarded to the "lowest bidder ' last

that the statement that the place
djl not go to the lowest 'tenderer,
was absolutely false., Mr.'Trites took
this with the meekness of a modem

down about _ the court - house that
have,been changed?   „
Whenever Gates got ajar, some tel.

He was 'finally led to admit that
ho had been acting as a coinmittcc'of
one looking around for a $35 police

Gates didn't fly wide enough open
•however to disclose the name of the
high-priced man, but tho Kid jumped
lo the conclusion that it must be Mr.

Things human.
" Premier McBridc    now  bus  a   fair
,, working   majority   in   the   House    to
buppoit liim, aud it remains    to    be
seen what use, he will make   of   it.
Tlie Ledger has always maintained
that Mi. McBride showed a lack ot
the real quality which goes to the
make-up of a statesman when be ac-
'ccptcjl tlie' responsibilities of government" under the circumstances prevailing "at the time ,1k* accepted' the
call from the Lieutenant-Governor,
and that he emphasized that luck of
,ical statesmanship' when'be continued
■ u>" play at government with such
hacking a.s he "secured at the elections
some liuee years* ago.
Now   conditions     have so changed
' that l.e fmds himself in a position to
vtaily ■ govern with a majority of the
,ni;-inbew_ .' belonging      to  the    party
-  nhich he leads, at,his. back, and'  be.
will,  for   tlie first time,  find himself
in a really responsible position,*   the
duties oi which'he will have to meet
with'no possibility of shifting.
He,, has  magnificent   ,. opportunities

problems  of. government   which await
•solution  in British Columbia.-*
The   vast   domain- which   still,  re-
' mains  to  be looked after and  • safe-
- ' ' .i ■
guarded in-the interest of its owners, the public,..will furnish ..'ample
scope for', the, ability of 'the most,able
111,111 lie can call  to the position     ot
■ chiei'cijiuniissioncr'of lands. It has'
beeii" through the incapacity of those
who..-lia.vb been allowed,' "to• blunder
llirougli^that department , that this
proiinee - has bean robbed of -more
thrin enough to* square oft the entire
debt now saddled upon us as a con-
saquciKC. of  such  blundering.
Not another acre of timber should
be allowed to" pass Irom the Crown
., i';lo llie hnn'ls of private parties-'
without the payment of its value into the.' treasury. British Columbia
has - the bright, and shining example
ol'Ontario ,before her as to timber,
and there is no excuse for /delaying

•   well-tried system to our own   timber
lands, __
The   department  of"   public  works
, should be divorced from the lands de-
partinent,   and the minister of lauds
allowed  to occupy hi j whole time in'
organizing his  department  anew.
In Eastern British Columbia abuses
' have heeu. allowed to creep into *the
industrial conditions which would be
ih '   harmony ', with    conditions ' i„ >
where else outside of.Sibcria.,*,
Corporations which have" received
large tracts of the .public domain
•..■ill-nut anv 'return are allowed to
make use of their gifts to circumvent
the truck' act and to perpetuate a
state of petty tyrany whicli is dnily
becoming more nnd more irksome and
unbearable.   •"
One little amendment to the truck
i".'t would sweep'into oblivion these
odious .conditions and quadruple the
revenue derived irom licenses, etc.,
now realised by the province from a
trade tliat has been monopolised by
these recipients of the bounty of a
unost, gpncrotis, not 'to say prbfljWtc,-
people.
If,Hon. Mr.,McBride, with his substantial majority, rircs to the .opportunities awaiting him upon nl-
inost every hand to legislate for the

have proven that tho greater the favors' shown them the greater will heroine their appetite for monopoly and
graft, he will have earned n most enviable., reputation ns'a constructive
•.talesman,
As wo said nf the beginning of Ins-
article, no mnn or government has
ever had such opportunities lying
before them to do good to the people of a province ns now lies before
the ptescnt government nt Victoria,
With her iiiouiilniiis of ore and
toiil, her vast forc.sKi of limber, her
great possibilities' for farming, grazing uiul fruit growing, British Columbia, with wise iidiftlnlstratioii of
lur nflalrs, will be in reality the
grandest province amidst a collcc-
of grand provinces, The opportuuitv
lies before Mr. Mcllrlilu nnd his associates. Mny tho Lord and iliu

thousands cf dollars during tlie   lasl
two years because 'of■•"-.the., ipcapacitj;"
or indisposition „of the officials, both"
city and provincial^,-to see that   'tho'
laws- of the land-are respected.
A tew people who get a rake-ofl
irom the law-breaking" process, de-
feud their actions'by saying Uiat--an
open town brings money. &_
' Will; these wise ones kindly inform
the public who gets the money'which
comes to .this town because of -such
neglect as ■ to law and ; its'-, enforcement? " ,-* <* ; ' ' .,
They keep _ discreetly , silent as to
the thousands' of dollars that have'
one "glimmering * because,' of law
breaking in this cily 'and do all iii'
their power to' keep out'of the press'
details' of transactions which „liave
brought iuin to families and ..diverted
thousands of dollars from a legitimate to illegitimate? uses.
The people of Fernie' need not con-
solo themselves with, the erroneous
idea" that money which is paid for
worse than nothing' will benefit a
umimuiiily which allows such .business to be practiced with impunity.
Iiveiy dollar that goes' ' for, nothing,
tosls somebody just that much, and
the vice .that impels men lo rart
with their money in that way is not
only .i cuise to its victim, but to the
community at large:
The Ledger is very well aware tliat
'in onlci to execute law, public .sentiment is necessary, and judging from
the cfleet of the partiality shown by
the highest authority in our city in
dealing with this evil, a very few
more jolts of the same kind will do
more towards creating, that, necessary sentiment-cthan dozens of 'tern-'
pcraiice lectures. It was ever ' thus!
Give a law breaker rope" and he will
always do the lest.: The law against
gambling has never ,' been enforced
\v:th any degree* of vigor., A few tinhorn gamblers have been made "scape
goats" and fined," but-, the. places
where these fellows did their work
were allowed to keep "on breaking the
law until they have concluded, that
they aic a law unto themselves, and
bcg&ii to dictate to the powers . .'.hat
be (lord pity the powers) as to who
should be allowed to do the law
bieakiiig for'the town.     ' , "
They must have a" monopoly of that
business, and woe be, to the' fpoliceman who has a suflicient sense of fair
play "in his make-up "to rebel.
The goose that lays the goldcn^egg

''The developments iu city ■ police af-
'.airs do not add credit" to the Mayor
for his action as time passes.
His statement in the, last week's
Ledger was not satisfactory and did
not dispell the public discontent over
the matter.
The Ledger asked tlie" Mayor" explicitly if heiiad interfcrrcd 'with the
i'oliceju the prosecution of the Fernie Hotel case, and his answer was
that he had not; that he had only
"advised postponement of action."'
In his statement, to tlie Free Press,
he answers a question as to whether
he told Chief Walker not to'push the
prosecution. He answered as follows;
' "To a certain extent tlmt is true,
Mr. Walker volunteered to accept the
responsibility and carry 'it over my
head., I sold nol Whatever responsibility there is I shall not shirk in as-
Miming myself, but as you have asked my ndvlcein the matter, my ' ad-
nce is to wait until .the commission
is appointed and take action in " the
mailer when you will receive your
Instructions."
Why Mayor Iloimcll should refuse'to
make such an admission to the Ledger'is a matter which concerns him
'| a n udi _.rentei 'extent tli-m ji d v
the Ledger, inasmuch as he now
stands charged with the exercise of
official favoritism in a most offensive
form, The Ledger will treat the
Mayor with perfect fairness, and If
lie returns unfair treatment he is the
individual who will stiller,
Chief Walker was also asked by
the Ledger for a statement' of „lil«
side of,tin. case, but declined io do
mi last week, on the ground that hu
was not prepared to do so. This

artistically illustrated by photo en-'
gravings of scenes and farms, towns
and villages, prairies and river, bottoms taken from all parts of that
vast territory. ts
J. The pamphlet is designed for distribution' among , intending immigrants, but it is full of facts und fig-,
ures which should be familiar to every citizen of our own great country.

Hew that few of its own' citi/.ens' can
rcali'M! its magnitude.
jjtyfhis C. P. 11. booklet, issued under
the direction of Mr. W, T, Robson,

attention of every man who is interested or who lias friends who nre interested in Western Canada, and a

"Winter   after   winter"'   Canada      is
swept' fiom ocean to ocean by an epidemic of la grippe,; or influenza. ■■  It
is one of the deadliest troubles known
to     pur climate.      It starts with - «
sneew-and ends, with a complication.
It lays-the strong-man on his back.;
it torture's him with fever and "chills.
• headaches and backaches. ' It leaves
the sufferer an easy prey to .pne-smon-
iaj bronchitis, "consumption and other
deadly diseases. You can avoid la
grippe by fortifying your""syslcm *v.tl*
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. You can-
cure" its disastrous after effects' villi
this same -medicine. ^ These pills   pro-
,' tect you;     they     cure you; they upbuild you;  they banish all evil   aftcr
efieets. ..    Dr/ Williams', Pink    Pills (
w&a' off all winter ailment's.      They !
-cure all blood .and nerve disorders'.,]
„ They  are  the, greatest blood builder
and nerve tonic science has yet    discovered.      Ask . your' neighbors,    1:0
• matter* where you are,,, and you   will

by/l)r. Williams' Pink Pills after other medicines have failed.   It is on the
. unbiased evidence''of your neighbors
that we ask you to' give these pills a
, fair ' trial if you are" sick or ailing.
Mrs.   Emma Doucet, , St.* , Eulalic,'
• Que., says: ^ "Words can hardly express my gratitude for what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for mc.
I liad an attack of la grippe which
left-me a sufferer from' headaches aiid
pain in the stomach.' I used several'
medicines, fcut found nothing to help
me'until I took Dr.. Williams' Pink
Pills. When I began them I was
weak and very much run down.-' The
