BRITISH   MOT EKOLIbtl.
The Scottish nation both at. home
and abroad is up in arms agan.at the
misuse of the name England and Etii*-
liah for Britain and British. This
obnoxious practice of using the term
England and English instead of Britain and British has only come into existence in recent years. England waa
annexed to Scotlard in 1608 when tho
Scottish King succeeded to thc J2u-*lish
throne. The two nations maintained
their separate parliaments, their separate churches, tbeir separate systems
uf education, and their separate judiciaries, which were as different and
distinct from each other as it was
possible to make a difference aud distinction. The Scottish purl in ment sat
und deliberated as oue assembly but
voted in its four estates, representing,
the peerage, the church, the- county
���uid the burghs. The English parliament existed then very much like whut
the British parliament now exists. The
Scottish Church was democratic in its
constitution and republican in its form
of government���governing hy session,
presbytery, synod and general assembly, and was the church of the people.
The English Church was aristocratic
in its constitution and bureantic in its
form of government and was only the
church of a section of the people. The
Scottish system of education was universal, every parish and burgb had its
public school, aud every county.town
its grammar school. Its universities
were conducted tbe same as its public
schools snd were open to all. The
English system was exclusive and was
conducted mostly by boarding schools.
The universities were on the same lines
England has only had universal education for the last thirty years. Scotland bas had it since the days of John
Knox, more than 300 years. The laws
oi Scotland were framed on the civil
laws of Rome and ita courts modelled
after the parliament of Paris. The
English laws and courts were a creation of its own, moulded by the sue-
cesive invaders who subdued .'....conquered tbat country, ���'���iijinaiii Saxon.
Dane, Norman and Dutch all had a
hand in making np its 'rare laws and
systems. Scotland remained uncon-
quered and unconquerable and there
need be no surprise that her eons along
with tbe sous of Erin have done more
thau the sous of England in the formation of our Empire and tho advance*
ment of civilisation. Indeed the English historian Froude lias gone so fur
as to assert that if we except the
Athenian and the Jew no other nation
has made s*tich a deep mark in tbe
civilisation of the world.
Ill 1707 a treaty waa made between
the two nations, whereby the two parliaments were to be united under certain conditions. Ths conditions were
tbst the two countries were to be
known under the common name of
Great Brltsin, thst ths names of Scot*
dnnd snd England were to be dropped
when the United Kingdom wus referred
to. Tbe Roysl Arms were united so
as to form the British cost of arms���
the Scottish lion and the English unicorn appearing as supporters on the
rshisld. The flags were interwoven so
as to form ths British Ensign, tbe St.
Andrew's   Cross,' white on blue, was
intermingled   with   the   St.  George's
Cross, red on white, to form the Union
Jack.   The English parliament ceased
to   exist   aud the Scottish parliament
ceased   to   exist and   out of   the two
there emerged the British parliament.
Another addition was made to this
British   parliament in 1800, when the
Irish   parliament   was merged into it
und a closer union established between
the United Kingdom  and Ireland, and
the general  term wus then adopted of
Britain and  British, and St. Patrick's
Cross was mad.e to form part of  the
Union   Jnck,   and   Ireland's coat  of
arms  was also included in the British
coat of arms.     The act which made
this great change expressly stated that
it was for the purpose of consolidating
and strengthening the British Empire.
The sovereign who sat on the British
throne  was  known   to   the  outside
world as His or Her Britannic Majesty.     Those magic letters H.B.M. are
found all over the world to-day whenever  the  British   Hag  waves from a
British Consuls residence, and the H.
B.M. coat of arms are uffixed thereon.
There was an   honorable observance
among all classes of the treaty rights
of the three nations but in recent years
there bus been an attempt, particularly
among a certain section of the English
people to substitute the name England
and English for t,he universal ami pop- ,p|ete-eveisul of .the past pol|cy which
ular term Britain and British. Who
tber this is done unthinkingly ur not.
it ir, n practice that should lie stopped.
Wc however, regret, that the practice
nppenrs to be indulged in by people
who should know better, such ns
statesni" i. politiciaus-uud even nfiicers
who we..r H B.*-l.'s uu.iu...i. We
Canadians are proud of being considered Britons nnd belonging to the British
Empire, but we would resent, being
called English.- It is uot a term we
Canadians have any use for in our
Dominion. All over tht world, whenever Scottiah nationality exists there
are being signed petitions by the Scots
residents there to Her Most Gracious
Majesty, praying Her Majesty to issue
a proclamation for a strict observance
of these treaty rights and the using of
the proper terms Britain nntl British.
Copies of these petitions have been received iu East Kootou'ay and.are in the
hands of leal Scotsmen,- Mr. Robert
Mathers, Delgaidno House, Fort Steele
and Mr. William McNeish, Columbia
House, Golden, where it is to be hoped
every Scotsman in our district who
loves and values nationality will call
and sign this petition. Nationality is
a sentiment to be cultivated. This
seatinmeut in man . is as perfume to
the Sower It sweetens and strengthens our character for noble deetls and
noble actions. The man who stands
up for bis nationality makes a better
citizen wherever he may be. Our Empire is composed of many nationalities,
and if uniformity is attempted by the
introduction of the common name
England mid English, then, ulas, a
long farewell to the dream of a federated Empire.

CANADA   RETALIATES.
The United States has Mr. Corliss
who hu* earned some distinction as
being tho uutlioi of the Alien Labor
Law, whereby U.tiindiuns are prevent-
frutn obtaining em ploy ment in the
States. Canada has Mr. Cowan who
is to earn some distinction us the
author of another Alien Labor Law
whereby citizens from the United
States who are working in Canada are
iuduced to bring in their wives and
families and settle permanently in our
midst snd help to build up our town''
and cities. Mr. Mahlon H. Cowan,
the author of this proposed legislation
ia the member for t|*e South Riding of
Essex,   Ontario, and  as  tlie measure
be greatest in British Columbia gold
fields and -inrticularly iu the southern
division of East and West Kootenay.
Thousands of miners ou thu Pacific
slope, leave their families in Butte,
Spokane and other cities south of the
line. The proposed law will require
them to bring their families to Canada.
The effect of this will be that these
families will require to coine in and
East Kootenay is sure to receive a big
addition to its population. The alien
labor law may mean, in not a few
cases that instead of mining camps, we
shall huve towns aud permiiaeut settlements.

I Ou Monday the 15th of March lust
thu Premier replied in answer to the
leader of the Opposition thut the Government expected tu declare its railway

next week. The next week cume and
went and there was no declaration ol
policy, so the louder nf the Opposition
very properly on Friday the 25th
March enquired when the policy wus
to be declined. The Premier was not
ready, its he wished when the policy
was di'claraJ that there should be
llllalllinity. Ic must be u wonderful
policy or the premier must be u v.-ry

policy will be heartily approved of by

uis given much dis-satisfaction. There
is one thing clear now that certain
members of the House have become
alive to the dangers uf the pernicious
system of charter inougering and are
insisting in the insertion of clauses in
charters compelling the carrying
through of the undertakings under the
charter within a stated timo under
certain money penalties, ami also forfeiture of the charter.
The Government has twice found
itself in a minority, deserted by its
supporters, uu the Alien Labor Bill
and the Mor'guge Tax resolution. The
Aliens Labor Bill was introduced by
the junior member for Cariboo. It
prohibits the employment of Chinese
on any private undertaking constructed under a charter under certain penalties. The second rending was opposed
by the Government, the President' of
the Executive Council leading the objection to the second reading. When
the division was taken the Government
found it had only three supporters thc
figures being i-1 lor the second reading
and 8 against it. Tbe Opposition was
hilarious and its leader on the following duy naturally enquired what the
Government intended to do seeing it
hnd lost the coulidence of the House
The Government did nut intend to do
anything A motion wns made for the
adjournment of the House and some
plain s|ieiiking waa indulged in." The
Government had made up its mind to
swallow any self respect it hud and to
stick to office, power and salary. The
motion for adjournment was lost ns
Govern men t's following returned to
their allegiance preferring to sacrifice
all principle for the sake of party aiid
in the -vote that fo'lowed tbe figures
were nearly reversed, 21 being for tlie
Government ami 10 against. This bill
hns since passed through Committee
and has been amended to exclude Japanese and passed through the House
last Monday.
The resolution of the member for
South Naiiiiiino waa discussed on
Thursday and 20 members voted for it
and 4 against. The resolution was to
the effect that in the opinion of the
Houso a I..X upon mortgages is one
which bears unduly upon different
members of u community. Some members of the Government were no disloyal as to appear in the majority.
The junior member for Vancouver
city is on the war path against the
employment of Chinese on works constructed under charter and insists iu
there being inserted iu every charter
a clause against their emplo.-ineiit.
The three gentlemen from Vancouver
city who are promoting the chin ter for
the construction of a railway in East
Kootenay appear to have ex|iorienced
some difficulty iu obtaining their charter. The bill was before Committee
for a considerable time, nnd hua been
considerably amended. The Chi ,ese-
Japaneac clause has been inserted. The
member for Ouwdnev gavo notieo that
on ita third reading he would movo
the same be discharged and the bill re-
will have the  Governments approval,' committed so thnt a clause be inserted

What a Correspondent of the Winnipeg Nor'-Wester hus to any ubout
Our Iiinillet.
I promised vou n letter from time to
time, and I am sure if 1 were able to
give only a lew of the every-day incidents of life at Steele - or were I able
to describe the great North Star mine
and its workings, or give you a history 'off Wild Horse creek and an account of its millions of placer gold
yielded up-it would interest your
readers, but in this short note I am
pot able to do more than speak generally of Fort Steele, and its present and
future prospects as a great mining
camp. Atid just here let ine say that
in Steele, as elsewhere in British Columbia 'our American cousins are
strongly in evidencj. Tliu majority of
prospectors are Americana. If amine
is in the market the men who are our
keenest opponents' for its acquisition
are Americana. The easiest way of
getting in and out is by an American
route. SPhere is an American store
with American goods. Iu fact, thro'
nearly every feature of this great camp
is his mark, aud I am bound to suy if
company will be actively at work in a
few days on one of their properties,
and the result of their operations will
be watched for eagerly, Bull riter is
also rich, principally
the   Moyea, Elk   aud
have their friends. In fact, it would
appear that thc whole country around
is oue vast muss of undeveloped
wealth.
The North Star mine is not a vein
or lode, it is a mass of mineral. It
seems us if the bowels of thn earth had
swollen   and   then  burst, ami ..that is
Now University for Manitoba.
The Manitoba Legislature has placed
S .0,000 in this year's estimates to provide university buildings (or its univer-
in galena, and ! sity  in Manitoba, to be situated in its
Wild Horse all  capital, Wiuiiipeg.Hiiheitothis univer
sity has been without a local bubita
tion, and is composed of tlie four colleges belonging to the Presbyterian,
Episcopalian, Roman Catholic and
Methodist denominations. It wns
simply a decree grading institution
but is now intended to make it n tench- I
ing   institution.   There   urn   liiU.OW.

3,000   tons   now   ready for shipment, j versify and there ia it feeling -hilt this
and   lam   told thuf every ton will go j grant which is to ho charged  against
from 180 to 00. There can he no rea
souable doubt that development will
produce many mines us good, possibly
better.
Yesterday I was shown a piece of
lava-like quart!*, wlijcli assayed gilOO
to the ion, and a piece of cupper which
would um 40 per cent. This latter, in
fuel both properties, are yet undeveloped. What the future i* no ouo can
tell, but I thiiik everything depends on
the construction ut once of tlie Crow's
Nest Pass railway. Then, if 10 per
cent df thu anticipations uio realized
this will be a great  center.      I mean.
this laud is a little too much to hut
row iu the depressed limes seeing that
the value of laud is. mu over too high
in that Province jus* now. All ihu
revenue derived from the land would
be required to meet tlio current expenses of the university, which would not
be less than S',000 a yeur. It ims
therefore been suggested that the Government House ��� winch has become a

the doctor appeared to be greatly perplexed, and thereafter continually re'

The result was that I grew very weak,

than (6,000 on actual construction of
the railway thereby authorized to be
built before the 31st December, 1899,
' \aiid in default thereof the said sum of
jfeil.OOO shall be forfeited and become
the property of the Govern ment us
liquidated and ascertained damn^es nnd
not ns a penalty, and the powers and
privilege* hereby conferred shall lapse
and beoome void on a failure to comply with the above condition. A good
clause this is.. The bill has now passed its third reading.
A select committee is to enquire into
the disposal of the B.C. Southern chart
ter. The scope of its enquirv should
be extended to enquire into the government job of shutting up the lands in
south east Kootenay for Colonel Baker
& Co. before it had authority to make
any-land grant* and also whjethor any
portion of the 184,000 promised to be
expended has been expended in prospecting over, the laujl and if so how
much.
One of the members for Victoria city
Mr. Helmcken, has championed 'the
cause of the ladies iu presenting a no-
L tition 60 feet long with 2400 aignutures
on it-40signatures to tho foot- desiring an amendment of the .Elections
Regulation Act, so that they may have
their parliamentary rights if th'-y cannot obtain their matrimonial rites.
The Chief 'Commissioner of Lands
nnd Works has presented his return
showing the land alienated or in process of alienation and East Kootenuy
hns been considerably depleted. The
C.P.R. company bus reived already
by itself dr 'for it8'behulf,'2,b-*,G00
acres, for its main line. Oilier 200,-
UOO-acre* for the railway between Nelson and Robson in West Kootenuy.
Why should East Kootenay bo thus
depleted to benefit West Koeteiiuy?
There has also been'reserved for alien
for  tlie BC'Southeru, 720,000
Notice of a question bus been given | succeeded   to the titlo on  the death of
in the Dominion House as to whether
the C.P.R. cont-iiuiy have died liny
plans for the buildiu-*oF this line of
railway. ''Let British Columliiu construct her own railways," says tliu
Chatham, Ontar o, Bunner; "they concern us only indirectly." All right,
Let parliament vote to British Columbia annually thut portion of the revenue paid by this Provides, spent for
purposes "which concern us only indirectly," and British Coliiniliia will
build all tlie railways she needs, und
not nsk the Dominion fur- u dollar
more.
The New York Mail ami Express
has discovered the secret of Mr. Gladstone's wonderfully vigorous review of
the Cretan situation. Ho rides h
wheel. Only a few days ago be wrote
a friend that- be had mastered tho
eccentricities of that extremely fractious machine. After an hour or two's
scorching along the Mediterranean, it
was. to hiin, an easy matter to issue it
scprcher of a manifesto. Our'contem-
porary Says : ''Other statesmen of
Europe have wheels, but they are not
always ridden, Gladstone's is on the
outside. He is 87 years young, and
still growing."

His  Popularity  aud   Uenlnllty���lto-
iii-ntlc of the founder of the
Osborne  Family.  .
The New York World in commenting
on ithe  proposed  appointment says:
"There is a something singularly
appropriate iu the appointment oa tbe
Duke of Leeds to succeed the Earl of
Aberdeen ae viceroy of Canada, for he
it married to a granddaughter of that
Earl of Durham who was perhaps the
most famous of all the British governors-general of Canada. Moreover,
tbe duke himself, besides being a man
of considerable wealth, of much geniality and spirit of repartee, brings to
tht viceroyality a flavor of liquor,
which cannot but contribute to the
good humor and jovially ot bis reign.
" Ia England he goes by the name
ot the ' Gin Duke,' being tbe senior
partner and managing director of a
firm which has probably the largest
gin business in tbe Uuited Kingdom,
and which bears a name that is known
to the consumers of spirits in every
part of tbe world, civilized and uncivilised. He derives large profits from
tbie source, and Whenever be has been
able to spare a moment from bis parliamentary duties, he hot been iu tbe
habit of ruthing off to Deptford, where
the distelieries are, to tee bow thingt
are going ou.
The youug duke ii as popular with
the liquor dealera, great aud email, as
he it the reverse witb tbe temperance
folk. Tht Duke of Leeds, whose family name is Osborne, is one of those
many of the great - Engliah nobles,
whose family acquired its first honors
in connection with trade in the oity.
For ita founder was tbat merchant'e
apprentice, who wou bis master's favor by diving into the Thames to rescue
bit daughter (row a watery grave.
The girl was an only child, and in
course of time the married the appren
tice, wbo succeeded to tbe business of
hit father-in-law, and became Lord
Mayor of London.
" The Duke ot Leeds sat for a time
in tbe house of commons as member of
of parliament for Brixton. The Queen
it vtry fond of him, and for several
yean he acted at treasurer of the
royal household.
"The duchess is a clever woman,
hat written several books, bat taken
an aotivt part in the councils of tht
Primrose league, and ia the mother of
four pretty girls. Sht hat no boy,
and for tht present tbe heir to tbe
dukedom is the duke't tailor brothtr,
who married laet year.
The duchese ii tall and stately, being, however, surpassed in stature by
her butband, wbo shares with tba
I��lke of Somerset the distinction of ex-
colling all other members of both
houiee of parliament in height."

June  1808.
The estimates of tbe revenue and expenditure of British Columbia for the
fiscal year ending 30th .Tone, 1898, is
now under consideration of the Provincial House of Parliament. Tbe estimated revenue is placed at $1,288,-
089.44 and the expenditure is placed at
11,566,765.10, showing a deficiency of
$278,075.65. The Government anticipates to have a cash balance on hand
at 30th June, 1897, of $286,000, but
their anticipations may not bs realized
This Government of anticipations and
expectations plac-s the expenditure in
East Kootenay for the fiscal year at
follows: Under the bead of Administration of Justice, Police and Jails in
East Kootenay an provided with $7,-
418 for salaries for gold commissioner
and government agent, constable, collector, recorder and gaoler at Donald ;
assessors, recorder and constables at
Golden and Fort Steele j recorder nnd
conatable at Windermen: stipendsry
magistrate at Tobacco Plains; and
sheriff at Donald. Under Hospitals
and Charities $2,000 are given for' the
Hospital at Golden. The prant of $800
in aid of the resident physioian at Fort
Steele has ��� been discontinued. For
education then has heen provided
$3,085 to pay the salaries of teachere
at Golden. Donald. Field and Fort
Steele and other incidential expenses.
For pnhlic works and buildings a considerable siim ia to be spent, $200 an
set aside for repairs. Fort Steele is to
be provided with a new lockup and recorder's office at the cost of $1,600;
and a public school is also to be provided for tbe same piece at the cost of
$800. On rnada, Streets, bridge! and
wharves for East Kootenay an to be
expended $16,000, and this does not include a grant of $2,260 to aid in the
construction of the new' bridge over
the Kicking Horse River at Golden.
Under the head of Miscellaneous the
fin departments at Golden and Donald
receive $200 each. There Is a rate of
$1,800 for the telephone service bnt we
do not know how much of this it to he
devoted to East Kootenay. Certainly
the whole sum would not bs of much
