Circumstances which the Oovi-ui-
mcut was unable to control have, at
tlie last un.ii.ent, forced Mr. Moivide
to dissolve the House and set -* the
dates for nominations and clPcti.i.H.
Thc 'disagreement, or whatsver it
was which resulted iu the resign itl-in'
made it impossible lo hold airj. i.m*
sessioii, so tin elections are pro..l ifii-
ed to take place ou the 2nd of JViv-
ruary^-gromid-hog day, and Juit it
will prove a ground-hog case ... r,
good many aspiring politicians i*. a
eel fa inly.
The Government has had a rough
time of it from the beginning, and i'ii
seems the most turbulent waters were
reached whei Mr. Green laid down
his commissio'.. as eommiscioner eif
binds and works.
Uefore lea\ iiiij this commissioner of,
lands and' wi.iks, the Ledger wishes
to call' attentiot to tins fact that it
lnrs been thiough this department
that thc grcclPst .losses*, to the province have be. l sustained. The department . whicl. controls the public
domain of such a province as Hritish
Columbia,' and has coupled with that
control the control of the greatest
spending department, has too much
entirely of the patronage of the government in    it., hands,   as    compared
when lliey ar; inacstigated, this province and t : people of South Kast
Kootenay especially will at least
know who is lc blame for the rob-
bery wliicli ha, resulted in placing
this property in t.la hands .\f corporations wjio •. not hesitate to use
that power to slill' further outrage
justice and control the liberties of
the people whose properly tl.cy
wroligfully ,]>( ssess, by keeping in existence closed towns and coercing Unpeople of th-- few open towns now in
existence. * =    *
A great opportunity awaited the
Liberal part-.-, of "this province to
show its title to the name, Liberal,
but such hall'iig, hesitating timid ly
has been displayed by the leaders -of
that parly a.- lo render ii almost
impossible at this, eleventh hour to
take a lirui stai,.l and come out boldly for what i-* the rights of the people of this province, as against the
ever-present a:'<l cver-persistenl inroads rf corporation greed and arrogance. At picsent it looks as though
the next IIousk will l;c  in  the    same
condition as war. thc one just dissolv-
i     *'
ed, and will n. controlled by an element entirely independent of both
parties. : '
This independent element will grow
in numbers and expand in its views
until it will force one or the other
paciks to bita'r. away from cheap,
political      nu.uutea'nbanks  and    come

the last twelve years that thc jirov
incc has bc.'i cursed by having iu
that particular department men who
have not hud the ability to rise to
the level of ever succesrftil politicians
of the city wan'' class,
The commissioner ' of lands and
works' should 'have nothing else excepting, perl-nps, the agricultural department to look after, and the public works should be made an independent departiiient.   This can he    don-.'
The government has, by its refusal
to net along sucli lines, weakened itself with th; people, and the Liberal
party has failct. to rise to the occasion, and the on-\ cure is to increase
and strengthen the independent element in politics.
A statesman can see ahead and
grasp the op] rrtunilies which arise.
A politician temporises and dodges
any vital stibjicl, and waits till public opinion  forces him  to act.'    The
be placed iu ucuiiiialioii by the Liberals of ih s district can hope" for
election who is afraid iti openly assert his position on  this subject.   '
The following dispatch was- sent out
from Kosjh-.ii'.l y?steiday by .J. A.
Macdonald, and is the only definite
infotmillion so far at hand iu relation to Gov. Mclnnes taking part jn
the pending dictions:
Rossland, Dec nd.—W. W. 11. Mclnnes will come back into provincial
politics at my rei'iiest. It is my desire to have the strongest contingent
of Liberals possible iu the field. 1
.believe his return will be to,.the advantage of llie piovince as well as to
thc  Liberal   parly. , ,,   '
There must have been some suong
inducement to'convince \V. W. IX. Mclnnes that.it wa:: best that he should
abl.udon th". governorship of the Yukon ta take pail in a very .uncertain
campaign ui-.dc: a leader whom he had
left in this province, lo become the
governor of the far north.

principles for which he surrendered a

A  feature oi  the issue  that should
be emphasized and explained  .is ' the
liigh    price  I ho  power    company    is
charjinr the street railway and electric light companies in Toronto.'  The
men in cotitri.'. cf the street railway
and the pow-'r company   are   largely
identical,   Tins'  bargain  with    themselves for th-' sale of power from one
company  to  another. What  ihey  lose
iu the street railway company l>y excessive rates ihey gain in the   power '
company.      The  stock of the    street
railway company, i.s more widely diffused in the hands uf the public than
that of the power company.   The   result is that the public have a   larger
share of lhe losing side of the     bargain than of the gaining side, and it
pays the men holding a controlling interest in both companies lo sell power from one to the other at excessive,
rates.   The feature of greatest  public
moment is the attempt to make these
"excessive    rates      the basis of    rates
charged the general public.   This must
, lie  emphatically   opposed.   In    taking
this stand there is uo hostililv to the
legitimate   enterprise   nor   the   legili-,
mate profits oi those who have taker
part    in the development of Niagara
power.     They    arc     entitled  to    all
,-  credit for their achievements   and to
good returns o*i     their    investments.
But appreciation of their   work must
not lead to     tame submission to' an
incubus thai would deprive Southern'
Ontario  of  tlu.  benefits  that    sliould
be conferred. b\   an inexhaustible supply of white coal hi the Niagara cataract.   It remains for the people    lo
rally to the support of their material
interests.— Toionto Globe of 2isl.

Here is one more practical demonstration of the completeness of ' the
machinery of the law for the purpose
of rsing „<K'n r people's money lo
enrich directors a iitl their favorites.
As the Globe states, the men in
contiol of th--- street railway and the
] ower company are identical, and
they are found making a bargain With
themselves, whereby llie company iu
which they, individually arc more
deeply and diiectly interested, is to
have a high price for power to be
supplied to tlit other company , in
which the stock, as the Globe blandly puts it, is more generally diffused.
What becomes of the honesty ' of
siuh inch, wh'** are elected to direct
this more diicrsified stock to the
best advniitage of those stockholders?
The law ninkcs this kind of tliiiifj-
possible, but it is no better, hay,
lunch worse, than the old-fashioned
highway robbery.
'flic divcrsifiel stockholders ' money
is used for the* purpose of robbing its
owner for the advantage of the man
who pretends to direct its use lo the
best udvniitage of that owner, and,
as the Ledger has stated before, llu,'
double direct in/ nuncliiiiery of ihe law-
is responsible for tlie whole scheme
of ' frenzied liiinncu."
Will the Globe explain how it is
necessary ilia' any such legal robbing
•innclilni* should be allowed  to exist?
Is there anv necessity whatever for
li.ivitig llu* saiiH' set of directors siting on the boiiids of those two companies?
None wlialevei, if the possibility nf
(lireetiiig the profits of one set nf
stockholders inc. the pockets of nn-
.fillier set of owners is removed,

FACTORY      ,
A g.ntlemaii named F. H. "' Malcolm is promoting' a canning, company uiuler tlw name of Malcolm's
Western Canu-eries, i.hnited. The enterprise is a highly commendable one,
but the rraii-oLer ■ has no sense of
■humor, lie recently advised that the
sharel.olders' shares would be divided
' into ten share1: so as io hide, thc
enormous dividends the sjuwjklioldfcrs
would make. Strange it is, passing
strange, that Mr. Malcolm allows the
public a look in on the purchase of
the shares if they arc so good. He
must have a large, generous' heart,
so large indeed that' il anight' he
worth nuking up ,*into "canned
For ourselves, wc are not buying
any of Mr. Malcolm's stock; it is
too rich for out blood. Just imagine
getting up some morning, and finding
that during the night our ten shares
had become a hundred, all -worth par'
or more. Onr heart is weak and we
might collapse over such a aniraculuiis
multiplication o! stock, hut to anyone who has a heart strong beyond
the reach, of the shock of i.tidtlen
wenlth, wewt ul • strongly advise buying a limited, a very limited, quantity of the, stock -Malcolm. Only a
little is necessary, 'because, you see, ii
is going to have pups, nine little
pups that wii'. all grow up some day
into full-grown stock, Just think of
it, gciiikiiicn, and step right up and
buy your stock in lime to gel Uic
pups.* Morden Chronicle.
And those pup.   will have imps,
And .still more pups will .^coming.
With the proceeds     of pups he could
have full  cups,
lAii)la head   that    '.would   always! be

There has reached the editor's tabk*
a charming little "souvenir of Van-,
couver," in poetry, by Annie C. Dal-
ton. It cor.lains twelve sweet 1 (.cms
descriptions of the author's emotions
upon',vicwing points of local interest,
around whicli are woven bright ideas.
There are scm: excellent pieces in
thc souvenir. In what may be called
an invocation to the wild roses in
Stanley Park, the author gives expression to these glorious words in
the last verse:
Not in an   English   meadow,
Nor yet i'i  English lane',
0 swc*t wild rose, thy glories
Now   du mi my  heart again.
Pink Jlake ol waxen fragrance,
Thou art both gaj- and wise,
•For thou, a   child of Eden,
Hast found a   Paradise.
Vancouver World.
It is all vcr.' good of thc sage who
sits amid the litter of exchanges and
oilier rubbish in the editorial sanctum of the World to go into extacies
o\er "'an invocation to' wild roses
and talk about viewpoints of local
interest, but here is the Kid .lolling
out doggerel by the galley with
viewpoints so sharp that you can't
sit down on them, with, or without
impunity, an 1 never a word of encouragement comes to him from the
aiilh.u-  of thc "Mystic  Spring."
If lie had made it read:, "There has
reached the editor's table a charming
little souvenii of , Vancouver,
Annie, C. Dal ton, we could understand him, f..r' she must be charming

thc one quoted

take in-teaspoonful doses every four
hours. The desired results can not be
obtained unless the ingredients are
pure. It. is therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and
prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin
Oil of Pine (Pure) should be purchased iu the original half-ounce vials,
which druggists buy for dispensing.
Each vial is securely scaled in a
round wooden case which protects the
oil from exposure to light. Around
the wooden case is an engraved wrapper with the nam**---"Virgin Oil of
Pine (Pure)"—plainly printed thereon. There are many imitations and
elieaj) productions of Pine, but- these
only create nausea, and never effect
the desired results. —s6
Pardonable at this Season, but the Results
are Unpleasant
Eating more than is necesssary is like
choking a fire by putting on too much
fuel. The food is not only undigested and
useless, but a menace to health. Depression, drowsiness, headache, nausea, flatu-*
I. nee,, and indigestion, are some of the
consequences. A Bilean after dinner isthe
best help to the overburdened stomach.
All sufferers from dyspepsia find Bileans
indispensable. They enable you to eat
what you like, when you like, and how
yoii like. Unequalled asa family medicine.

DEAR MR. CI.AUS:   I want a lot ol

I've been a-litl'e treasure to my eou-

And so, dear Santa,  don't object, II
I hang up my pants,
I want     a    two-cent     railway   fare
through all  this' favored land,
I  want     Niagara power  cheap.'   Oh,
wouldn't it be grand I
I  long   for   public    ownership,    free
telephones and such,
And lots of other things ■Ix.'sides;* say,
