The Leader's Reception ami Reply to
Addresses of Congratulation.
A grand reception was tendered
to lion. Wilfrid Laurier on the
evening of Aug. 5 at Ottawa on the
occasion of the formal Inking up of
his residence at the capital. Thousands welcomed him at the station
and cheered him along the streets.
Among the many transparencies
shown was one rending "Protection
to the Working Class." Senator
Mclnnes rode in the procession with
other leading Liberals. Replying to
addresses Mr. Laurier said the government would endeavor to relieve
agriculture from its burden, to promote trade and commerce, to develop our native industries. It would
also be their endeavor to encourage
literature, letters, arts and science,
and to make Ottawa a seat of learning, a part of letters in lhe Dominion. (Cheers.) He had spoken
elsewhere of his desire to see Ottawa
become lhe Washington of the
North. (Cheers.) He had nol forgotten those words; lie intended to
live up to them as much as he could.
No nation but was proud of its capital city. No Frenchman in the
Pyrenees or by tiie sea coast of
France but was proud of Paris,
while all Americans were proud .of
Washington, lt would therefore
be the endeavor of his government
to make Ottawa us far as possible a
capital of which Canadians should
be proud. (Cheers.) It would be
their aim to make Canada such a
country that whenever a man left
its shores it should be the pride of
his heart to proclaim that be was a
Canadian. (Cheers.) The proceedings closed with cheers for the
Queen, Mr. and Mine. Laurier, and
Sir Oliver .Mowat.

Interim' Department.
Ottawa, Aug. 7.—There is great
pressure being brought to bear upon the Government to appoint a
.Minister of Interior, The general
affairs of the departments of both
Interior and Indian affairs are left
i:i the hands of deputies and the
consequence is that all the political
heelers who were employed by the
late Government are slill at work
and the country i.s responsible for
their salaries for August. There is
no appropriation for surveys, for
instance, yet a couple of men who
are now engaged in surveying swamp
lands drew nearly $10,000 between
llieni for the month of July. This
will lie repeated in August. Those
political partisans of the Indian
Department who were stumping the
country against the Liberals are
slill drawing their Government
Cheques. Home of those who figured
in llie scandals of 181)1 are also being recommended by deputies for
promotion. It will take a live, active man,.who will spare no pains
lo get al the root of all the recomen-
dations placed before him, to overcome the inlluci.ee which surround
lim. Another Tarte is wanted in
tbe Interior Department.
Canada and the I'nited States.
In addition to tariff reform and
preferential trade with Great Britain, Mr. Laurier and lhe Liberals
are pledged by their platform to the
betterment of trade relations between Canada and the UnitedSlales.
The United Slates and Canada have
been one another's best customers
even under tho protective policy of
tbe Conservative Govern ment, which
has chosen rather to antagonize
than to conciliate Canada's nearest
and big neighbor, who is also her
cousin. Under a less restrictive!
policy each will be able to contrih- j
ute greatly to the trade and prosperity of the oilier. Everything
will be done, however, to encourage
trade between Great Britain and;
Canada, and lhe exportation of
farm products to England will be
encouraged and assisted.

The climate is good and the settlers

as to the suitability of the land for
fanning and fruit-growing. Some
of the settlers have farms in Minnesota, and they have applied for
leave of absence (one of them for
Iwo years) to live upon their hold

Must Have Representation.
This is the Evening Telegram's
view of the question of British Columbia representation:—" British
Columbia must have representation
in the Dominion Government. The
figures of lhe last census entitle the
Province to six members of Parliament. The census lo be taken in
]!)()<) will raise British Columbia's
representation in the Dominion
House to twelve or fourteen. A Province which, after llllll), will at least
have fourteen members at Ottawa
has claims to representation in the
Cabinet which should not be ignored
in 1896. British Columbia is thoroughly Canadian and thoroughly
British in Bentiment. 'I'he elder
Provinces of Cam.da cannot afford
lo chill a great Province in its infancy by ignoring the claims of thai
Province, A direct interest through
a British Columbia representative
in the Government would have a
tendency to nationalize a Province
which is already strongly national

interest and patriotio expediency
Wilfrid Laurier will be justified in
calling a Hritish Columbia minister
to his aid."

A Fair Champion.
"Reine," whose "Chatter" is one of
the best features of the Union News,
thinks that "editors, as a rule, are too
arbitrary in regard to punctuation." In
this view, however, she is possibly mistaken ; but she certainly is so in the following-opinion,although we do not question the facts upon whicli it is based,
her sincerity or sympathy, which latter
are duly appreciated:
It is hard for the good-hearted editor—
and they are kind as other men, notwithstanding the trials of reading reams
of misspelt copy and pages of foolscap
covered with doggerel—after he has
"chased up" all the news available, sat
up nights to receive reports, etc., and
endeavored to present a clean sheet to
I his subscribers, to hear that some one
lias said "That rag of a paper is no
good; there isn't a thing in it." And
I yet the paper is praising tht town and
the country, and the business of the man
who speaks so disagreeably is helped by
the " rag of a paper." One consolation
remains to the hard-worked editor: It
is not the best element who abuse a decently conducted journal, but, nine times
out of ten, the fellow who never pays hiB
subscription nor advertising, and usually
it is the man who borrows "the rag;
and bo bis opinion is worth about as
much as he himself iB—really not worth
this notice."
Your sympathy is misplaced, Reine.
What you imagine is hard is very easy—
for the editor. The " good-hearted editor" leaves the misspelt copy for the
"intelligent compositor" to correct, and !
the "pages covered with doggerel" are
very easily consigned to the waste-paper
basket, or "literary hell-box." As to
the opinion of " the fellow who never
pays his subscription or advertising,"
he belongs to a class not represented on
our books and by whose opposition we
thrive. That is easily borne—by the
editor. Neither is an editor "hard-
worked," Reine. He simply furnishes
work for others to do. But when an
editor has to fill every position from
"devil" to editor—well, that is different.

Our Ottawa dispatches to-day a: -
nounce that the Dominion government
is considering the appointment of a commission to inquire into the mining industry in this province with a view to
aiding its development. The proposition seems to be a good one, if for no
other reason than that the appointment
of sueh a commission would be an addi
tional advertisement for the mineral
wealth of the province. If the commis-
seon achieved none but what may be
termed negative results, it might still
do the mining industry much good. That
is to say, it could point out many ways
in which obstacles that now hamper
those engaged iu it might be removed.
Tnere iB no fear but that the industry
will look after its own development if
a free field and fair treatment are given
it, but whatever tends to hamper in I
hinder should lind a remedy. Mail facilities seem to be particularly in neid
of attention, and there are little bitches
ii the customs ailininistation to be
smoothed out. It is quite probable that
a commission would find many ways of
making smoother the road of the mi. er
an 1 mine operator. In any event theie
is satisfaction in finding that increased
interest is taken in the East in British
Columbia mine development.—Times.
