London, Feb. 8���A despatch from
the Pall Mall Gazette fruin Dublin declares that the firmly rooted belief in
influential ciroles is that nothing short
of a revolution ia meant bv ths ITulted
Irish League and that the advocates of
constitutional methods are slowly bnt
surely giving way to the strong physical force section.
According to the correspondent.
Lord Salisbury's speech of Wednesday
laet before the Union Constitutional
Ciub leads people to hope that the
Government haa at last learned the
lesson that Home Rule cannot be killed
with kindness, and that it has become
aware of the terrible havoc worked by
the League throughout Ireland.
The correspondent adds : "Irishmen
who have just returned from the United States aver that no support will be
giysn to the disloyal cause unless the
discussions and scenes in parliament
giie place to something more active in
Ireland itself. The American end of
tho campaign is being run by men wbo
are all of the same stamp as Finerty,
wbo recommends dynamite and rifles
Young Ireland ia being taught to be
Here in the coining storm, and to
openly speak thereof with enthusiasm,
the policy of kindness has convinced
the peasantry that the reign of the
British is almost at au end, aud in
truth the British statute book is
already suspeuslesl, and the court of the
League is supremo."
... By Ford cable:���Salisbury's significant reference to Irotaud has been
emphasizes! qy tlie election in County
Do-vn, where the land purchaso candidate, supported by L. W. Russell, is
elected in lhe place of a unionist. Irish
discontent, instead of being assuaged
by the policy of siuotlieriug it with
kindliness and optimism has iocreused
and tlie loyalists of Ulster are now
divided amongst themselves, and the
Nationals'6, as the prime-minister bas
confessed, do nut like England any
better than they did before and hare
never been more embittered against her
during any period of military ojsera
tlons. Tlse Nationalists in tiie Coin
mans who opposed Russel, when i
waa for iheir interest to do so, were
exultant yesterday and disposed to
regard the vjctoi-y of tba land purchase
party -as their own work, and Mr.
Wrndham was sharper than usual in
hie replv, apparently forecasting
trouble in the near future. The essential conversion of O'Brien's United
Irish - League iuto a most powerful
political organism ion with unity and
direction imparted to the Ns.noi.nl,st
patty under Redmond's leaslership and
: lie divisions cteated, kinong loyalists

Insure in the Imperial Life
London, Feb. 6.���Lord Salisbury unveiled a life sized marble statue of the
late Queen Victoria, at the J.snior
Continental Clublast night. Ala dinner after tl.e unveiling, the premier
referred to the recent Dutch nolo. He
said be waa unable to imagine the
object el tho Dutch Governmont, for
whoso friendly feeling hc bad the
greatest admiration, but lie conld not
seo tlio precise object they hoped to
gain by their ourious step. It waa
clear that the Dutch had no authorisation from our enemies (the Boers) on
the continent, silica from the moment
this action on the part of the Netherlands Government was announced,
these enemies vied with each other in
declaring the Dutch notion to be umle
There is no longer any question of
sentiment, continued the premier, we
have entered upon a matter of busi
ness which we must push through.
What we are now seeking is security.
Any peace which recognises fully the
rights ol tho sovereign, and gives us
security for tlie empire, we ehquld
accept, not only with willingness, hut
with delight, Tbo ouly thing that can
compensate for lhe loss of blood and
treasure is that for the future ihere
shall beseem ily in that part of lhe
Empire, upon whicli the ambition of
-dr. Kruger lies produced this abundance of sorrow and desolation.
Lord Salisbury eaid he had no misgivings for the future, and thnt he believed tha war had made tbe country
more confident in its extt-.-r.nl policy,
more convinced that its opinions woulsl
receive duo consideration from the community of nations. But when the
present strain had passed away, continued the epeaker, thero would still
remain duties wbich eould not le
shirked. The existence of hostile feeing in Ireland was a signal that the
efforts, upon whioh depended in no
slight degree the glory and continu-
anco of the Empire, must not be relaxed. The maintenance ol our position in Ireland is the most vital object
the empire has, and it oan only he attained by strenuous exertion*. Ue
asked if the Irish people loved the
Governmant better than they did formerly, and replied himself that they
did not. He said Ihe feelings of hostility which had heen expressed wore
more uncompromising than auy expres
sione which had ever issued from the
lips of Parnell or O'Connell. An Irish
Govsrotne.it with power to aeeninulate
arms and ammunition would consli-
taje a more serious threat than had
i be Boers. ���

Premium for the Privilege of
Supplying   Heat.
London, Feb.  8   The apparent incompetence and, it is claimed, poasible
dishonesty wnieli  permeate the  Purchasing departments of   the   British
Army, as revealed tbis week in parliament, have caused a j ublic agitation
that augurs badly for the  War Office.
Judging from recent and promised disclosures scarcely any of the supplios
lor the   army   iu South  Africa were
secured on business principles.   Speculating contractors are now  kuown  to
have made hundreds of thousands of
pounds  by  reselling contracts.'*   Tbe
Opposition vainly  endeavored, to get
details regarding the new contract for
the supply of meat announced by the
Qovernment in   tho House   of   Commons, with tbi* view of ascertaining if
a saving over tlie former methode will
really  be  elected.    The Governmeut
successfully avoided answeiing, but it
is understood that thecontract in question was first resold at ��10,000 premium and tben  at   ��40.000.     Tben
Ceoil Rhodes and tho DeBeers   group
handed over ��200,000, aud thus finally
secared the privilege of supplying the
troops in   South  Africa   wuh   fresh
tatat.    These figures are iiki'i.v   ro Ise

Tho Liboml Convention In Vancon*
ver, lust tvoek has takon two very important stops tbs decision lo adopt
Party lines and the adoption ol a stable
platform-which will do much to clear
liis- political air iii this province, and
which, wn trust, will prove to bo the
commencement of a now and batter era
in lliiti-h Columbia politics At all
events wo mny remark in passing thnt
no state of affairs can lie worse than
Must which has prevailed for some time
past, when personal ambitions have
boon allowed to stand before -ho interests ol the country at large.
With regard to the selection of a
li'Kilcr we can only Bay that if Mr.
Merlin will ouly curry uut his pledge,
iss given in his speech accepting lhe
l"ndcrship, nn extract ol which we
publish in our report of the conversion,
there is yet a chance for a useful life
before him, and he will no doubt re*
naive strong support Irom the Liberals
of lha province.
We regret that some of the delegates
from Vancouver Island saw fit to with
draw frosn the convention because they
found it impossible to mould it to their
views, and we think that when the
matter Is considered by the Associu
tions whose delegates withdraw thnt
i hey will see I hnt the lime ia juissed
fur the policy of the province'.o lie i*r��-
pitted by a coterie in Victoria, and tlmt
Ihey will fall in line with ihe movement which has been inaugurated.

reoently Dr. Garvin found a number ot
tha bullets missing from the little tin box
In wbich he keeps tbem and has never
been able to trace tbem. Strolling Into his
offlce In the jail, a reporter found tbe doctor closely examining the bullets whioh
were scattered about the table.
"It Is something remarkable," b* said,
glcklng up one of ths small slugs that wat
attered and twisted out of shape, "how

with hi* speech afterward.
"Now, tbia one reminds me of another

one side and flat on the otber. "A man
named King was brought bare recently,
who wes sbot In the lower part of tlie left

in finding half of the bullet above the tar,

One bullet had been flattened from ths

It waa one of those duets that have supplied George Orossmtth and other enter*

"We are informed on good authority
that the C.P.R. intends lo commence
work thia year on the reduction of the
grade ol the big hill east of Field.
This grade, as everyone who has been
over it knows, is the heaviest on tlie
aystem and is an enormous bill of cost
to the company. To overcome it the
road will cross the Kicking Horse
river at Field, nud after tunnelling
through a spur of Mt. Field will follow
the weat bunk of the north fork to the
famous Yo-ho valley, uud then return
on iho opposite side, making the die-
trance between Field und Ilector about
30 miles, instead of nine as at present.
The grade will be reduced so that one
engine can haul n full train, thus doing away with the pushers at Field.
Other works contemplated ia tbe reduc
tion ol the Palliser grade by followinir
the river above Palliser and the doing
away wilh the curve a*, the mod tunnel near Pallisar either by making
an open cut or by oleuuing out the old
tunnel and lining it properly.
