in the past respecting the time for the

that she was determined to maintain
her troops in Egypt until her work

to do tho right independent of tlie
law's mere letter, distinguishing
statesmanship from narrow politics.
Every member of the Commons, not
altogether depraved by party intrigue,
must wish that, the School Question
might, be settled without coercion ; vet
points  which want to be made clearer
beforo   we can exactly account ior the
move   by   the   British   Government,
Lord Salisbury  snid a few days since
iu the House of Commons that definite
information hud been received that tlie
Dervishes were advancing upon Egypt
and that, being the case, England having   on   many  grounds determined to
remain   in   Egypt, such   n movement
must be resisted nt nil hazards.     The
Eastern Soudan is a territory covering
nearly l.OOO.OCO square miles.    It was
until  1HI-.2 iimler Egyptian rule more
or  less, but  ths revolt  of tno Mahdi
alienated   it   thus breaking it up into
leveral   districts.      It    appears   that
after the death of the Mahdi ono of his
officers.I-halifu,succeeded to his power
ami making the city of O ntiir.nnu
capital   has   managed to keep com roi
over  tbo  revolting  districts,   though
since   then   Durfur has asserted their
independence of   him.     The embers of
���.liih.lisin  of course remain iu the peo'
plo    its   inherent    ami the recent disastrous events in Abyssinia Ims fanned
them  into fittiue.    Tlie Sultan of Turkey  again   is desirous that Great Britain should  relax   somewhat ou their
grip   over his rule in Egypt and other
expeditions may he made to show him
tbat her   intention is quite ill another
line to  his  wishes, and  to show him
that   his   rule   will not be allowed to
become more substantial in Egypt than
it   is   at  present.   Then Prance, that
fair   republic,     bus   been   extiemely
anxious   to   extend her possessions iu
Afric*., especially   in  juxtaposition to
the Suez Canal, and of course has been
trying to  bring  about the evacuation
of   the  British   troops in Egypt, nud
the   expedition   may   b.' necessary to
show   the   "Deputies" thut it is Uti-
taiii'-. intention to maintain her possessions with a strong hand if necessary.
In addition to these considerations the
Italian   reverses   iu   ihe  Abyssinian
campaign   and   their  effects   ou   the
Dreib.inil muke a further complication
of mutters.    Hut whatever may be the

Sir Donald's mission to Winnipeg, for
the laudable purpose of promoting
such settlement, wns seized upon and
drugged into the dust of a party
squabble, like a bone of contention,
over which parliamentary antagonists
snarled and quarrelled,
Ir almost seems absurd to keep
harping ou one subject so much, but
when you consider the amount of our
interest the absurdity may appear less.
I refer to the better transportation
facilities between us and the Up| er
Country. There is no doubt that lhe
Fort Steele district will eventually
become a scene of some mining activity
and it is tlio duty of the Canadian
Governments, Dominion and Provincial, to procure the trade of tliut district rat her than allowing it���as it
now is - to be nearly controlled by the
United Stales. It seems ridiculous io
us.I suppose it dot snot lo ihe Islundir
to hear all tlie high-flown talk over
the British Pacific and the advantages
that, would accrue from such a projection, when wo know for a surety
that a railway from here to Port
Steele would be of real materia! benefit
and would open nu enormous mineral
wealth ou tbe west side of thi'river.
This is a section of country that Ims
been settled for some years and cannot
make any more material advances iu
progression until better moans of
transportation nre brought about.
Surely a purl ot the nouiitry that is
settlo.1 nud stands iu need -badly in
need -of a line of ties, should claim'
more attention than a dink part of the
country which is yet unknown to
white niiii ami probably lo Indian.
therefore impress on my lion, friend's
intellect   that salmon nre a mil writer j
lish nud  come up into iho fresh water
to  spawn.      I am also fully iiwaro of
the   fuct   lhat   the   Columbia   Hows
through   Iho   United Suites, there are
other   streams likewise in Canada and
vice   veisu.      I might mention to .Mr.
Ay liner the great lakes, for those reasons   a   joint coiuiuii.sion hns been ut.
work, boiii  in Canada and the United
States, to urrivo  at some co-operating
scheme to protect lish life.    About tho
political   point  whicli seems a touchy
one   with   my   Hon.    friend, the lish
question of this giant Dominion is too
weighty   n   subject   for a wen I;-kneed
would-be   politician   like   our   friend
from   Ducks to iletil with; let thc gentleman   got, at   least, cliiuatized   lirst
ami   if, like   whisky, lie will improve
with   age. for   it.   is   possible to gulp
down   bad   whisky r. Tew mouths old
but the after chip is not pleasant, and
altho a   few rank liberals havo gulped
dowu an   aspiring  politician thut our
const   cities ri-jnrtoil. they do not look
particularly   pleasant   ou-i-   the dose.
Tho   product   of   a   hatchery   can be

y  friend to look up ihe tish question
before   he   tackles it again.     I would
further  add that, the same fish which
run  the  gauntlet at the mouth of the
Columbia, exactly   where Mr. Aylmer
stales   it  joins the Pacific are caught
und   prepared   for the markets of   the
world   by   the   ton, furthermore   onr

Mr. Joseph Chamberlain replying
