Viol-brut, May 20-Victoria bos already forgotten parliament and ite
it* doings in preparations for celebrating Etnpire Day. Mav 24, 25, and there
I* very little political gottip to be
heard.' Occasionally one hear* something dbout the prospective changes in
tbe cabinet, and a belated promoter
will tell yon why his company should
reociveiho subsidy voted, but that is
abont ill.
The rush of northern travel and
business has commenced with the
breakiig of the ice in the Yukon. This
year coast merchant* are making an
effort lb secure a larger share of this
businets than bos fallen to them of
late years, and unless Victoria is involved1 in the labor troubles of the
Sound cities it is likely that they will
get It. In fact the strike of the longshoremen and seamen on the Sound
may drive a great deal ot business to
the ports of Victoria and Vancouver.
In any case tlie C.P.NV Co. is determined that it will do all in its power
to aid tho coast business men in their
efforts to regain the northern trade, and
the company's fleet is being strengthened and improved. Beginning this
week a fast service to Skagway will be
commenced, with the Islander and
Hating. These two large and fast
steamers will make the round trip to
Skagway in five days, touching at both
Victoria and Vancouver. By placing
these boats on this run it is expected
that considerable business heretofore
going to Seattle will be diverted to Victoria and V ancouver.
There are likely to be several changes
in the newspaper world here before
long. Lugrin, it is said, will shortly
leave tho Colonist for the Vancouver
World, and this will involve changes
both here and iu the Terminal City.
There is little now in the political
���ysH-y/.- Mifc.Tiin-e.r is -jo. tlte upper
country On a farewell tour, and while
speculation is rite ns to liis successor,
it is all speculation. His retirement
mav meani, more t(|*iu one change in
-lie Cabinet. Mttrtill, J. C. Brown and
Garden are all here, supposedly in
connection wilh possible changes in
the Ministry.
There is much disappointment felt
here at the' failure of the Federal
Government to grant substantial bonuses in uiJ of railway construction in
this Province, when the other Provinces were so well looked after. In
spite of thia failure there will be a
great deal of railway construction in
British Columbia tbis year. There
will be the Arrowhead and Kootenav,
the Lulu Island and the Midway-
Vernon, as well as a line on the south
aide ot the Fraser. An evening paper
here makes the statement that the C.
P. R. ha* tiled plans witli the Government for the construction of a line
{rom Chilliwack to the coast, This is
a mistake, but at the same time the C.
P.-It. is working on a comprehensive
scheme for railway building on the
lower mainland which will add materially to the mileage of the Province
and open np the best farming lands to
be found north of the 49th parallel.
These lines,: if constructed ns proposed
by the company, will be a part of the
through Cosst-Kootenay line, and
plan* for tbeir construction will no
doubt be tiled with the Land* and
Works Department in a few daya. The
company bas decided upon a plan for
the systematic development of the
agricultural district* of the Province
snd will commence with the construction of ths lines needed along and near
the Fraser, and: when they are completed the hundreds of thousanda of
acre* of Sne farming and doiry iand*
from Hope to the Coast wilt be belted
With steel. Th*** lines will be brought
Into Vancouver over tlw bridge to be
erected at New Westminster, and the
north ��rm of the Fraser will be bridged
by the company to bring the Lulu
Island railway Into the same oi'r.
Tho C. P. it., nulike the V. V. *'&.
i* not. waiting for a Dominion bonus.
but ia preparing plana for the construction of several pieces of line and
is figuring on receiving the Provincial
��ub��idv only. Thew pieces ssf ra**),
as I hav*' mentioned before, when
completed, Will be part ot the 0**t-
Kootsnay railway. The only offer th*
V.. V, * E peosple will make to the
Government for tbe rJ-Jtmrw-.tion  of
this line depends solely on their receiving a subsidy from the Dominion and
unlimited time to complete the road
after building short lines connectin..
with the Great Northern at Cloverdale
and Midway. It they do not receive
the subsidy they will not agree to
complete the line at all.
Victoria's famous ferry scheme is
now referral to here ns the "greet
bunko game," attempted by the V, V.
k E. promoters, who attempts I to get
something for noshing. The bonus
voted, $475,000, will never be asked
for now, however, as the promoters
refuse to meet the requirements of the
bylaw by providing fer tbe construction of a competing line
Ottawa, May 18���Sir Wilfrid Laurier, to-night, gave notice of a resolution increasing the sessional indemnity
of member* of parliament and senator*
to $1,500 instead of $1,000 a* at present. Thia will be permanent and will
begin with this sessiou. 'fhereareSlU
members of parliament and 81 senators ao that it will entail an increased:

Hon. W. C. Wells.
a write-up of "Public Men of
Britisli Columbia," the following appear* in the Vancouver Province:
It has been said by an arch-opponent
of tbe present Government that were
all the departments of the public service administered with that business
zeal that is characteristic of Hon. Mr,
Wells' direction of the land and works
office, critics would have little indeed
to complain of.
It is indeed a great compliment���
the greatest possibly lhat could ba
paid his administrative ability���that
the conduot of tho land* and wotks department under its present head is
more systematic, practical and in every
way satisfactory than under any other
previous) incumbent, irrespective altogether of politico or party.
In the house as in his department,
Mr, Wells is found therefore pre eminently a businessman���thorough, practical, aiming to be as familiar with
every detail of the country's "business
committed to liis care as he would
were that business bis own individual
His conscientious devotion to work,
sincerity and systematic steal are little
short of phenomenal, and his discussion
of matters concerning the work ar
responsibility of his department gets
away altogether from the issues of
party politics nnd is crisp, practical,
decisive and reliable.
In the legislature, as in hi* office, he
is found dignified as become* a minister
of the Crown, and while those unfamiliar with the man may at first be
Inclined to rate him a trifle pompous,
when he ia better kuown it is hard to
realize how he would ever be given
this character, since he is one of the
most approachable and kindly of men
There ia another side to Mr. Wells
than that ot the shrewd, far-seeing
systematic business man, for he posses the rare faculty of laying official
caies aside outside his office or awav
from his seat in the houso. and none is
more fond than lie of tbe pleasures of
social life.
A charming conversationalist���an
experienced and graceful host���au ardent lover of good music���a Sympathetic and kindly listener, it is no wonder
that be is a popular member of tbe
social world of the province, in wbich
he has become as conspicuous as in the
risstiks of British Columbia's lawmakers
and departmental chieftains ���C. H.

hat been customary to give employees
in Government office* a holiday on
May 24. Th* King, on lieing asked if
��ny holiday would he uiven this year,
decided on May 24 as a suitable day.
Thi* ha* nothing to do. with Iii* own

will probably be in the summer, may
be celebrated instead of November 9."
Ottawa, May 21.-The Crow's Nest
Southern Bill, which stands for a third
reading, has beesi dropped. A report

Prorogation may take place this week,
but there is still considerable bnsinee*

During tl.e debate in tl.e House of
Common, on the bill giving bonuses to
certain railways. Mr. R. L. Richardson held that the system in vou ise today und for to many years was vicious.
Canada had already voted in snbsislies
toward railway const ruction $'2*-'i),000,-
000, and the land brought the total
outlay up to something lik�� $400,000,-
000, more than it cost to build all the
lilies in existence in lhe Dominion.
But instead Of owning 'hem thejjona-
try bad no interest in the undertakings,
and instead of controlling thein they
controlled parliament. He wae not
opposed to railway construction, bnt (f
tho roads were built they should be
under better control, ansl if the bonus**
Wero granted, they shottld bs. of * dof-
ferent system. The country should be
ablo to take the roads over whenever
wanted, deducting tlie sum paid in
bonus. Besides, parli,sm��nt ought to
exercise the most, careful supervision
over the bonding and capitalization.
These were the views he ha,I learned nt
the feet of Liberal leaders in Canada,
and he was sorrv they w.re not lived
up to b.v tho sime jisrty today. Mr.
Richardson quoted the pamphlet issued
by the Reform organize.' in Ontario in
lSLHi entitled "Principles, Policy ansl
Platform of the Liberal Party." Tire
The portion which denounced evils lhat
had arisen in bonusing railways. The
system was just as had toduy as as it
was then. The Governmont, if it
wantod to settle the transportation
question, must own one through lilt*
to the Northwest, but the policy of th*

FRIDAY, May 21. 1901.
The manner in which subsidies to
railways have beess granted in recent
years hy the Domin'on and provincial
legislature*,, is lie ng regarded with
oome alarm in London. R,furring to
a remark in a report on Canadian railways, made by tbe United Stales Consul General at Montreal to his Government, it. which he states thnt the con
tinuoua expansion o the railway subsidy system '-is awakening alarm
among the taxpayers of the cou itrr
the London "Canadian Gazette* says
"it were well if this alarm were more
wid'sjiread and acted as * greater de
torrent upon Governmeut and politic
ion* alike in Canada." Th* Gazette
goes on to say that "No body con
watch Canadian affnir* without regarding it as something ol * calamity that
Canadian legislatures Ihould find it so
e.sy to provide tlie money tor a waste
(ul duplication of railway facilities"
and remarks that "recent political
iiiauoeuterings in Manitoba and British
Columbia are much mora than to pro-
Vide railway competition." Concluding
its remarks the Gazette says "we
shall be muoh surprised if easperienc*
sloes nol bring regrets, on this account,
to the taxpayers both of Manitoba and
British Columbia before the preseut
decade is oul." ��� News* Advertiser.

Ottawa, Ont., May.���Tho bouse ol
commons went into committee today
on the resolution for establishing o
branch nf the royal mint in Canada
Hon. Mr. Fielding, minister of finance, said that the Australian colonies
bad three mints. It wa* held that
irs.de wus being loat to Canadian Paci
lie coast hy the lack ot a mint. Ssati le.
it was said, was taking the trade of
the Yukon because ihere was no mint
in Canada. The only difference between .he branch of tl.e royal mini
ansl an independent Canadian mint
was i hut Canada wool I have to give
tip purl of lhe control to the royal
mint who would send out ezperts to
look after it. Canada would pay these.
The mint oould be used for making
British gol J coins a* well as Canadian.
There was not so much Canadian gold
used a* many would imagine. However, between the making of nil tbe
Canadian coins and British sovereign
as well there would be enough work
for iho mint.
What was proposed was to pa e
$75,000 at the credit ��( the British
royal mint for it* operation Then
there would bs * building required
This alone would cost $-.'00,000. If to
this was added walls to surround ths>
building, vaults, machinery etc, it
$*j<j0,000. Ths operating ot the mini
would not probably cost more that.
$i)..,000, which would leave about $10
tOO out of tlse SVi.000 for interest on
an expenditure of $,'100,000 on the
building and equiptiiiont. About $9.
000 would bu uece-isary for this. Hr
calculated that the profit which would
Ise made oil making Canadian coins,
particularly the silver ones, would
make the mint self sustaining.
Tl.e mint, l.e said wuuld be located
iu Ottawa. He was not jirepiired to
s>oy where au assay ssffice would Ise

Tbe last cast oi. the list at tbe A* '
i'z<.s was R z v MoKniuht, in whioh
e prisoner was. c sargtd with bavin*
on ths fifth of lost August last, damaged tbs. house of Q ion Sing at Ath
elmssr. The prisoner having b-sen p'a e 1
in ibe dock ple.ided cot gui ty snd the
following were empanelled os a jury:
D Morgan, Wm McNeiih, W Avery,
S A H imhly, J Jardine, H R Moodie,
(fo e ran) Quon Sing wa* the first ait-
nes lor the crown an 1 in vary imperfect En<1 ah told bow ha and lour
other Chinamen wer* asleep in his
laundry at Athalmer on the night in
question, of the "bg noli." tl a* woke
him nnd of hi* jumping out of his
window and subsequent *ii:ng up of
the damage to hie property and compatriots, ont being hurt on arm, snoth' r
on leg and Quon on, "he hurt all over,
uo can *|*tk f mr five Lotus" He ad*
milted that he had no idea who caused
the explosion.
The Crown called for one Miller
whose name wo* on the list of witnes
ae. and We.Ioy Mill, r being in sourt
was called to th* box much to his surprise. He, however gave evidence as
to the occurence of the explosion ond
tho damage caused whicli corroborated
Q ton'* statements. He did not see
any one round that suspicion might
fall on. ,.
W C Bennett on being sworn told ot
prisoner working on Toby creek road
for him and ot hi. having on Aug. 31
asked for his time and on being asked
the reason for leaving so suddenly,
saying that Miles McMillan had told
him that Barnes was after bim (prisoner) and lie had better get out of the
country. Also that prisoner said"that
s���of o b��� Ryan haa aquealed on us.
This being the mo.t important witness
for the crown llie Counsel for defense
Mr T O'Brien, used every meant in his
power to *hake his evidence by. a
searching cross-examination but wa*
not able to do so. Constable Borne*
gave evidence of his efforts ro secure
evidence in the case but found every
one uncommunicative. So he spread
he repsr. that be wo* going to arrest
prisoner and his partner and they
there upon aklpjied. Barnes detailed
hi* following the traok of two men
whom he believed to be prisoner and
his partner to Fort Steele where he
learned they had left on o freight for
the south.
Miles McMillan denied having carried
any newa to prisoner or any one else
and all the efforts of T. M. Daly conld
not elicit anything to the contrary
from him.
The prisoner then took the stand in
his own defense and told of his movements during the night of the explosion
and from that time down to his arrest
iu Golden. His story was * very clear
and well connected one and Mr. Daly
could not secure anything of a damaging nature trom him.
The counsel for defense then addressed the jury and called attention to the
sevi re cr .ss-ixs.ninatio i that the eminent K. C. hod subjected the prisoner
to, aa an eviden e that hi* story wa*
the truth and tuggestad that Mr. Ben-
net was mistake.!, nnd thought jury
should find not guilty. Mr. Daly on
the other hand olaimed that Mr, Bennett's story was true, it being more in
accordance with tlie event* which transpired about Aug. ill and the daya
following. Hia lotdahip then instructed
iury a* to the law in the cuss and
ssrdered them to retire nnd consider
t heir verdict. After on hour's consisler-
utiois th* jury found prisoner not guilty

A visit to th* offices of the agricultural department recently repaid ua by
securing the information thtt the C.
P. II., on representations made by tbe
Government and interested shipper*,
had *o greatly reduced the freight rate*
on produce from the Okanagan vallev
that a saving of $80,000 per year
would be med* by th* f��rm*r�� and

Th* War Worth All It Cost Britain 1st
Blood aad Traa.nre.
London, May 15,���Prime Minister
Salisbury, who has juat returned from
France, made a speech in London lut
night, in which he viewed the benefit*
which hs believed hod resulted from
the war in South Africa, despite the
lamentable lacrif.ee* England had
been called upon to make.
Ouo of tbe greatest benefits, he (aid,
waa that th* display of the
latent powers of the empire had
dissipated the notion whioh had spread
throughout the world that Great Brit
ain's atar had set, that ahe would
never fight (gain, and that auy adversary needed only to pre*, hardly and
boldly enough to o impel ber to yield.
Now it was seen that ohe could copy
the brilliant examples of the past.
Tho empire waa undoubtedly safer,
and tbe cause of peace more secure.
There was now no power in the world
but knew that if it defied the might of
England it would defy oue of the most
formidable enemies that might possibly
Ui encountered.
Another benefit wa* that the war
had r v-soled the exist* ico for along
time of * conspiracy to oust the British from South Africa, which, if it
had not been encountered now, would
have strengthened and grown more
dongerous. The British had, thereby,
been taught * le.*on regarding Home
Rule for Ireland. When they fought
in the past against Irish Horn* Rule
they bad not reul'zed what sort of a
tight could be maintained by a hostile
Governmont against it* suzerain, no
matter how overwhelming the power
of the auzerain.
If tke Home Rule bill of 1893 had
been passed and an Irish Goverument
established at Dublin, it waa uot very
extravagant to ...ume, In view of the
exhibition* in tha home of common*
and elsewhere, that it would bave been
a hostile Government. What, then,
wonld have been Grett Britain'* po��-
Ition, if *h* had not ouly to meet th*
South African republics, bnt concur*
rantly, a hoatile Ireland? There wa*
good reason, therefore, for re.i.tiug
Home Rule, but since the South; Africsn
experience* had Uught th* powor and
capacity of modern instruments nf wtt,
hi* hearer* knew thtt If they allowed
hoatile Iriib leodero unlimited ecope to
moke warlike preparation*, they would
have, if engaged in war with othtr
power*, to begin tgtln th* ta.k of
conquering Ireland.
