LIBERALS STILL STRONG.
i Sir Wilfredr Laurier was placed in
power in 1896 wiih a majority of 34.
In the election of 1900 his majority
was increased to 53 and in 1904 it was
further increased to 63. pnly Ontario,
Prince Edward Island and the Yukon
give Opposition , majorizes. At the
last election Sir Wilfred was given the
e itire representation of Nova Scotia
aad British Columbia and 52 of ihe 6
members from Quebec. By the election
of Mr. Stanfield in Colchestor last year
the solid phalanx of Liberal representatives from Nova Scotia was broken, but
the ministerial party is still overwhelmingly strong in the House of
Commons.
The Senate, too, is very strongl..
Liberal in its present complexion, there
being not more than 30 Conservatives
in a total membership of 87.

OUR FOOTBALL TEAM.
The meeting which was held on
Monday evening in the Kootenay Hotel
Parlor, for the purpose of organizing a
football club, was well attended. The
citizens'are showing great interest in
the organizing 'of this club. Harry
Faulkner, the chairman, told the boys
that the only way to make a success
out of it is to put your whole interest
into it. "Put your shoulder to the

exercised over  what ' they  termed a '
"Sensation"   caised  by   some  party
holding office.in a certain  city  church
allowing a public hall belonging to the
church te be used during Lent for a
dance.   It appears from the report that
the clergyman in charge knew,nothing.,
about it until the affair was. aH oyer, f
and then he administered a  severe re-
duke from the pulpit.   The official Who-1
rented the hall excused himself <m- the■■:■,
.round that he forgot all about it being* Lent.   The Coast dances lave no
leed to worry over a little thing like''

DOMINION   TIMBER   ORDER
Lumbermen May Lose Leases if  Compelled   lo  Saw Logs.
Vancouver, ApriP 3.-Owners of
timber lands in B. C, whether provincial or Dominion, are much interested
in the conjunction issued from Ottawa,
that forthwite lessees of Dominion
lands must start logging off each leasehold and must also build and opera e
saw mills. The quettion was discussed I
bv the B.C. lumber apd shingle aast.-i
catitn. •*,
Timoj.' lanJ3 in the railway belt of
the   Lower  Kraser  are    particular'y I
affected.   It  i»   pointed out  by   tie
lumbermen that in thu great majority
oi cases these leaseholds are  held   by j
men who have never expected an order
for the immedia.e and continuous logg-j
ing, and tley are not   financially in a;
position io c imply with it.   The result |
wju.d be mat they would lose their;
holdings.
The Federal Government  had i: t - '.
mated  that it  might reconsider   the'
order that the mills should be built to
cut t'mber taken off Dominion lanJs,
and permit lessees to sell ths mills al-'
ready built.
