Nelson, British Columbia. Monday, January 30,   1899.
Ninth Ye?r
A. S. FARWBLL ODT
iS A CANDIDATE
Will Contest the Nelson Seat
in the Legislature.
ISSUES   AN    ADDRESS
Gomes Oat at the Earnest Solicitation of
Those Who Consider Him the
Best Man.
In another column of The Miner
this morning Mr. A. 8. Farwell announces himself as a candidate for the
sent in the Provincial Legislative Assembly vncated by the Hon. J. Fred
Hume. Mr. Farwell enters the field nt
the earnest solicitation of a great many
of the electors of Nelson, some of them
former supporters of Mr. Hume, who
now believe that the Nelsou Ridiug of
West Kootenay de erves to be represented by a stronger man than Mr.
Hume has proved himself to be.
Mr. Farwell needs no introduction
to the electors of this riding. He lias
been a resident of British Columbia
for over thirty years. As a Proivncial
Land Surveyor of a great many years
standing, he is thoroughly familiar
with the needs of not only West Koote-
nsy but of the entire Province. He is
a recognized authority of the prsoti-
oal working of the Mineral and Laud
Acts, aud it is claimed, because of
this knowledge, would be a valuable
representative. In his address to the
publio Mr. Farwell does not mince
words in making his position known.
It speaks for itself. He proposes to
go to the legislature ns tvfrieudof West
Kootenay, to npholuvnny legiHlntinn
for her benefit and advancement, nn
matter what source it may eminate
from.
The writ for the election was issued
Saturday afternoon, the date upon
���which it Sb to be returned being loft <o
the returning officer, probably John A.
Turner. Mr. Hume will arrive in
Nelson tonight. He telegraphed frieuds
here Saturday that he would leave
Viotoria Saturday night and would get
into the fight immediately upon his arrival here.
The Miuer is asked by Mayor Neol-
andi to state that while his name may
have been mentioned in connection
���with the contest for Hon J. Fred
Hume's seat in the Provincial House,
he has nt no time authorized any one
to use it nor has he for oue moment
considered the question of becoming a
caudidato. He has been olected Mayor
of Nelson aud will serve his full term
and in any event would not be a candidate in opposition to Mr. "Hume,
whose linn supporter he was at tlio
time of the last election.
All arrangements have been completed for the publio mooting to be
held under the auspices of the Libornl
Oonservntive Association of Nolson
in tbo hall of the Hotel Hume this
evening. Sir Oharles Hibbort Tupper
will deliver au nddress on topios of
the dny. The front rows of seats will
be reserved for ladies.
A Viotoria dispatch says: Pretty
strong lnngnarge was used by ex-At-
torney-Geneml Eberts in regard to
tho Lieutenant-Governor Saturday
night in a publio meeting. Referring
to the dispute as to what took plnoe
about the dismissal of tbe Tumor ministry, Eberts said:
"The Statements the Lioutonaut-Gov-
ernor mads nre a pnok of lies from beginning to end."
Suoh lnugusgo in unprecedented iu
regard to a Lieutenant-Governor, as he
represents tbo Quoen.
A Viotoria dispatch to the Spokane
Spokosman-Reviow under date of Saturday, says: Tho writs are out today
for the ���lection in Nelson Biding.
Wost Kootenay, to fill the pluce made
vacant by tbo resignation of J. Fred
Hume, Minister of Minos It is reported that Hume will not run again,
but will retire from political life and
go into the Atlin couutry. It was
known some time i g l that at the end
of the session he ex, doted to drop out
of the Cabinet, but his resignation
from tho house was not contemplated.
D. W. Higgins, of Esquimau, is spoken of as Hume's successor in tho Cabinet. Higgins has bad his eye on n
Cabinet position for a long time, and
one of his reasons for breaking with
thu last Government was beoauso they
kept him as Speaker aim declined to
have him in the Gab'net, Higgins
was not very favorable to Joe Martin
until quite recently, and this lends
color to thi idea that the growing amiability between the two means that
Higgins goes into the Cabinet. He
would neither deny nor confirm the
story today when interrogated.
MOVE TO  CASCADE CITY.
Foley Brothers and Larson Will Establish Headquarters There.
Cascade City, B C, Jan. 28.���
Maun, Foley Brothers & Larseu, the
contractors for the Bobson-Penticton
branch of the Columbia & Western
Bnilway, now under active construction have sent notice to those with
whom they do business that "ou'' and
after February 1, all business communications intended for their firm should
be addressed to Cascade Oity, as the
headquarters of the firm would be located there after that date. This will
doubtless serve to briug a large amount
of business here that has hitherto gone
to Brooklyn, tho old headquarters.
The contractors' new office building
is now ready for occupancy, near the
warehouses of the firm and the paymaster hns engaged passage on the
Brooklyn Cascade stage line for early
iu the week.
IMPERIAL POLICY
MB.  CHAMBERLAIN DISCUSSES IT
IN A SPEECH.
Says  All Nations  That   Hays   Sprung
From British Loina Will Shire
in  Success-
London, Jan. an.���Rt. Hon. Joseph
Chamberlain, Secretary of State for
the Colonies, speaking in Bimingham
this evening at the annual dinner of
the jewelers and silversmiths, said:
"We now see our cousins across the
Atlantic entering the lists nnd sharing
in a tnsk which might have proved
too heavy for us alone. Under the cir-
onmstances the first business of this
' worst government of modern time' is
to draw closer tbe bonds wl;ich unite
us to the other members of the English speaking raee and to promote their
oo-operation in the great work of civilization which appears to be tho mission of the Anglo-Saxon race."
Speaking of the government's Imper
ial policy, Mr, Chamberlain said:
"Providence shapes our ends and in
teuds us to be a great governing power
oonquering in order to civilize, administer and develop vast areas of the
world's surface, primarily to our ad
vantage, but to their own advantage as
well. As to the result of this mission hitherto, nu impartial witness,
Rear Admiral George Dewey, has said
that one of the mightiest factors in
the civilization of the world is the Imperial policy of England. But, it will
not be longer the Imperial policy of
England alone, for all nations that
have sprung from our loins will share
in the success which hitherto has fallen on our shoulders alone.''
FROM  SILVEBTON.
Oue  of   the Towns   Ignored   by   Mr.
Hewitt Bostock.
Silverton, Jnn. 28.���Mr. Hewitt
Bostock gave Silverton the go by in
bin recent visit to Slooan Lako points.
He railed only at New Denver en
Slocan Oity. Judging however from
tbe reports which roach hero as the
tenor of his address at thnso places, the
people of Silverton had lost but little
iu consequence of his having absented
himself. Whatever ho may bo persou
ally,he is regarded here as a poor apology for a representative of the Koote-
ua'vs in the House of Commons.
There has been a good deal of talk
here recently of tho K. & ti. railway
seeking nn outlet nt or near this place
to tho Slocan Lako during the coming
season. However this may be, the O.P.
B. arrangements here aro utterly inadequate for the incoming and outgoing
freight offering. The wharf is far too
small to acoiimmodiito this freight, and
it is constantly and rapidly increasing
in volume. A larger wharf and bettor freight arrangements are much
needed.

Nelson by the local forces yesterday,    i
Berlin, Jan. 28.���Emperor William's
action at Hanover is regarded as being
of great political significance. From
a member of His Majesty's entourage
who accompanied him to Hanover the
following has been learned. The Emperor had accepted an invitation to attend this week the silver v/edding festivals of the Duke and Duchess of Saxe
Cobourg aud Gotha, but heard with
chagrin that the Duke Of Cumberland, the Guelph claimant of Hanover
and Brunswick, had also been invited.
Thereupon he sent a strong expression
of bis dissatisfaction to the Duke of
Saxe Cobourg aud Gotha and although
the Duke of Cumberland, in the meanwhile, had expressed regrets of his inability to attend, the Emperor remained in high dudgeon and stayed away.
There have been persistent rumors
lately to the effect that the eldest son of
t' e Duke of Cumberland, might on
Monday, ascend the duual throne of
Brunswick if he consents to abjure all
claim to tho throne of Hanover, demonstrates his loyalty to Prussia and
accepts the statue quo by becoming an
officer in a Prussian regiment of the
guards. Tho Emperor, however, seems
to have made hie excursion to Hanover
in order to repudiate any intention of
a reapproachmeut with the former
Guelph dynasty aud by the proclamation of his order providing for the
identification of Prussian regiments of
Hanover with the regiments of the old
Hanoverian army he has made it plain
thnt he considers the union of Hanover
and Prussia to be an unalterable faot.
He then gave the death blow to the
hopes of the Guelph party. The Emperor has now established a permanent bond between the old Hanover-
iau regiments and the present tenth
army corps which is reoruited almost
entirely from the Province of Hanover. His Majosty also presented bis
Hanoverian Uplaps with a helmet
badge inscribed '' Peninsula-Waterloo-
Gnrhde. " It is said iu oourt ciroles
that the Emperor for some time past
has beeu made aware of reoout utterances of tho Duke of Cumberland regarding His Majosty which hnve
deeply wounded his self-estesm.
DlNGLEY'S  SUOCESSOB.
A New York Man Will Serve on the
High Commission.
Washington, Jan. 28.���The President has appointed Bepresentative Sor-
eno E. Payne, of New York, a member of the Joint High Commission to
fill the vacancy in the American representation of lhat body, oausnd by the
death of Mr. Dingley. Mr. Payne
also succeeded Mr. Dingley as chairman of the Ways and Means committee of the House. He represents the
28th congressional distriot of New
York and is now serving his seventh
term.
SNOW FOR THE PICKANNIEB.
Atlanta, On., .inn. J8,���Snow is re
ported an general throughout central
and Southern Georgia and Alabama today. In Atlanta nenrly four inches
has fallen. Throu inches has fallen at
Oolumbiis and other points in South
Georgia and about two inohes ,n Macon and Montgomery, Ala.
THE TREATY   APPROVED.
Rome, Jan. 28. ���Tho Chambor of
Deputies today after a week's debate
approved tho Franco-Italian commercial treaty by a voto of 22(! to 114. Ono
of the speakers expressed the hope that
n similar would bo coucludod with the
United Statos
Senator Frye Speaks on the
Peace Treaty.
REJECTION MEANS LOSS
VICTORIA   VICTORIOUS.
Viotoria, B. 0. Jan. 28.���The hockey
match hero today botweon Vancouver
and Victoria resulted in a win for
Victoria by two goals to one. Tho
gamo was well played by both sides.
If the Treaty iB Not Eatifled the United
States Would Lose all Eastern Advantages.
Washington, Jau. 28.���Senator Frye
commenced his argument for the ratification of the Peace Treaty with
Spain in today's executive session of
the Senate. He talked for au hour aud
a half aud again made the only speech
of the day's session. The principal
questious under consideration today
were those relating to the payment of
the claims against the Spanish Uovern
ment, the reasous far agreeing to pay
Spaiu for the improvements made in
the Philippines and the reasons for extending to Spain the benefit of an opeu
door in her former possessions. Senator Frye said that the question of claims
of American citizens agaiust Spain
had occupied much of the time aad
been the subject of anxious thought
ou the part of the commission hut that
there was no practical solution of the
problem in view of the poverty of
Spain and in fact, no policy was compatible with the reputation of the
United States, as a nation whioh knew
how to be generous as well as just. He
said there were about $12,000,000 of
those claims and it was possible the
amount might reach {15,000,000.
Spain had agreed as an offset that the
United States to pay the claims of
Spanish citizens against the United
States Government but Mr. Frye ad
milted that the aggregation of these
counter claims was not large.
Senator Frye also said that the commissioners had felt that they were justified in drawing upou the generosity
of this country in agreeing to pay
$20,000,000 to Spain for the improvements made by the Spanish Government and in couceding them for a
term of years tbe same privileges as
claimed for the United States in the
conquered country. The effort of the
American commissioners to secure control of tbe Caroline islands was also explained, Mr. Frye stating that the
Spaniards had absolutely refused to
discuss the proposition. America's
offer of a million dollars for the islands
had appeared to have no effect whatever. They had eveu declined in tho
most posit've manner to oede one of
the islands of this group as a cable
station.
Referring to the present situation in
the Philippines, Senator Tillman asked Senator Frye if he was willing to
have Uuited States troops fire upou the
Philippines, to which Mr. Fry replied that the firing stage had not beeu
ronchod and he hoped that the treaty
would be soon ratified aud that this
stago avorted. To reject the treaty
meant tho restoration of the stutu quo
to give up Manila aud all points taken
after tho signing of the protocol uud
to lose all tho advantages acquired
through the war in the tar east.
'ALWAYS   FORWARD    SAVOY."
Under That Motto tho Italian Prime
Minister Will Tucklo the North Pole.
London, Jan. 28.��� Thoro is much
interest here in tho Duke Ahruzzi's
North Pi lo expedition. Before his do-
partnro from Rome (juenn Miirgnretta,
his aunt, presented him with an Italian
Hag embroidered by her own hands
with "Always Forward Savoy," a
motto identified with thn family. Iu
receiving the Hag the Prince said:
"This Hag shall wnve over the North
Pole.or I shall not return." The Queen
had difficulty in suppressing her emotion and pressed his hands exclaiming :
"You will roturn Luigi, you will
return."
GENEROUS SENATORS.
WILL SEE THU POPE.
Rome, Jan. 28.��� Archibishop Ireland, the Amerloan prelate who arrived here yesterday, will forthwith lie
recoived by the Popo.
Thoy Grant an Increase- to Several of
tho Diplomatic Force.
Washington, Jan. 28.���A spirited de-
liale wns precipatited in the Sonato today while tho diplomatic nnd consulnr
appropriation Mil was under discussion. The appropriations ooinmilt'o
was sharply criticised for not providing an Adequate salary for snme of the
consulnr offices and secretaries of legations of this Government in foreign
countries aud the parsimony of the
Government iu   this   respect  was de
nounced as a disgrace. Mr. Hale,
Maine, was in charge of the bill and
despite his protest, several amend
meuts iucrensing the snlnries of diplomatic officials were incorporated in the
measure. The bill was passed, carrying nearly $1,500,000, iu excutive session.
Mr. Mason offered a motion prefaced
bv statements that reports hud been
served that of lato years as high as B0
per cent of soldiers nnaocustonied to
the climate of the Philippines have
died of reason of the climate.
WERE   UNJUST.
Paris, Jan. 28. ���According to the
Liberto the Massius in��vstigatiou has
revealed acts of imprudence and incorrectness of attitude upon the part of
certain members of the ciiminal sec-
iton of the court, notably their refusal
to hear witusses who applied to he
confronted with other witnesses whose
testimony clashed with their own. The
premier, M. Dupuy, disposed of the
rumors of possible action against members of the criminal section by saying
that the result of the H. Massius instigation, "Will not necessitate further
action beyond the introduction of the
proposed bill.''
REV. MR. FORD DEAD.
Revelstoke, Jan. 28.���Rev. F. Ford,
who met with an accident at Albert
Canyon yesterday, died at the hospital
here at 11 o'clock last night. Deceased
was very popular with all the people
here, and his death has cast a gloom
over the community.
EAGAN IS GUILTY
COURT  MARTIAL HAS   RESULTED
IN OONVIOTIOK.
It is Recommended That He he Dismissed
From the United States
Army-
Washington, Jau. 28.���General Ea-
gan, Commissary General, has been
found guilty of the charges of conduct
unbecoming an officer and a gentleman
and of conduct to tbe prejudice of
good order and discipline and of the
specifications thereto,and has been sentenced, to dismissal from the United
States army but with recommendation
from the court for the exercise of the
executive clemency. Under tho regulations the court, having reached
the conclusion that the accused was
guilty, had no choice in selecting a
peualty, the regulations prescribing
absolutely the punishment of dismissal
for the offence. Therefore, the only
hope for General Eagan is in that of
commutation.
GREEN-EYED MONSTER.
Said to Be Causing   Friction Between
Dewey and Otis.
Barcelona, Jan. 28.���The Manila
correspondent of the Diario says ho
discovered that relations between Major General Otis and Rear Admiral
Dewey are most strained owing to the
profound rivalry which exists between
the land and sea forces of the United
States in the islands.
"The administrative morality of the
Americans" says the correspondent,
"is bolow pur." The gambling hells
of Mi nila aro taxed $1200 ench nnd the
police nro highwaymen who make arbitrary arrests and then demand from
$10 or $20 for the release of their
prisoners. The correspondent further
declares thnt. tho Americnns hnve mo-
nopilized nil tho trade and swamped
tho markets with their products rendering competition impossible. As au
instanco of this California wines nre
sold in Manila as   genuine   Bordeaux.
HOW IT WORKS.
Americans Who Find Fault  With   B.
C. Legislation.
The law recently passed l>y the Legislature of the Provineo of British Colombia debarring all aliens from locating placer claims in thnt Province will
work considerable hnrdship among
AmorioiuiB who hnve spent money in
fitting out nnd making the journey to
Alnskn, snys the Minneapolis Times.
Even thoHe aliens who hnve claims
properly recorded in the office of the
surveyor hnvo been Informed that nt
thu expiration of one yenr from the
dnte of their papers their claims will
revert tn the government, Unless the
bill is repealed tiy higher authority it
seems that the only way for Americans
who hove money invested in British
Columbia to escape nonflsoation will
be to become British Citizens.
Two Minneapolis men, W. H. Strow-
hridun nnd J. R. Hoffin, purchased in
Skugwny, Oct. 12 last the right tn
operate five claims in the Atlin district. Tho Government office nt Atlin
City is closod Oct. 1 each vear, nnd
Messrs. Htrowbridgc nnd Hoffin were
nimble to file their cliiims when the
purchase wns made. Thev relumed to
Minneapolis, purchased outfits, and
prepared to make au enrlv start. Mr.
Strowbridge went to Seattle to meet
Mr. llolfiii nnd there learned of the
pnssnge of the nlien bill. These gen- j
tinmen will lose not. only Ihe money
spent in outfitting hut also the money I
paid for thoir claims. j
IAS PASSED AWAY
Germany and the States are
Quite Friendly.
WHAT   EMPEROR SAYS
Those Who Endeavored to  Cause  Strife
Between the Countries Were
Unsuccessful-
Berlin, Jan. 28.���After divine service at the palace on Emperor William's birthday His Majesty received
the personal congratulations of each of
the Ambassadors. He greeted the
United States Ambassador with espeo-
ial cordially and conferred with him
for quite a long while. During the
conversation the Emperor expressed
great satisfaction at the fact that the
United States aud Germany were "Evidently understanding each other better thau formerly aud that efforts of
persons who for their own putposes
sought to stir  strife had failed."
The correspondent of the Associated
Press has interviewed Mr. Wbyte regarding the statement that the Uuited
States wants Germany to recall the
German consul at Samoa, Herr F.
Rose. The Ambassador said: "The
statements are incorrect. The truth is
that both nations are awaiting full information. Each side directly declines
to believe that mistakes have heen
made all round but just how far each
is responsible there is no means of telling until the dispatches arrive at
Washington. The two governments
have discussed the matter in the most
friendly manner aud each avowed its
readiness to dc whatever ia just and
right including the disavowal of any
acts of one or more of its agents which
may be shown to have been contrary
to the treaty or to the community of
the nations concerned.''
FRANCE QUIETING DOWN.
The Papers Have Adopted a More
Friendly Policy Towards England.
London, Jau. 28.���Frauoe as the incendiary factor in European politics
has subsided. Tbe diplomats in London aud Paris are conferring daily,
which in conneotion with tbe hints
of the Home Secretary, Sir Matthew
White Ridley, in his speech at the unionist demonstration nt Blackpool ou
Jnnuury 0, gives a color the story
that a great treaty is being made by
which all tho disputes between Great
Britain and France will be settled.One
report which finds credence is to the
effect that Great Britain gives Franoe
tho Congo Free Statos as compensation
for her demands in connection with
Madagascar and New Foundland aud
to placate her for the conquest of tho
Soudan. Whatever may bo the reason,
the touo of tho Freuoh statesmen and
press toward Great Britain has shifted
to one of conciliation. Tbe last French
paper published at Cairo to attaok British rule has ceased go doing, aud it is
supposed thut the French Government
subsidy has boeu  withdrawu  from it.

NELSON ELECTION.
The campaign is on. The Returning
Officer has beeu appointed; the Opposition oandidate has been named, aud
Mr. Hume will arrive in the City tonight to personally superintend the
canvas. At this writing it has not
been annnounced who the Returning
Offler is, but it is believed to be Mr.
John A. Turner, who celebrates his
appointment by actively canvassing
for the Government candidate. Mr.
Turner is a Liberal; Mr. Hume is a
Liberal, and the controlling spirit of
the British Columbia Government is a
Liberal. Two years ago the Dominion
rang with dismissals of Government
offlcinls for offensive partisanship, the
offence often consisting of a more or
lass mild interference in elections.
The Liberals at Ottawa laid it down
as a principle that Government officials had no right to take a more active part in elections than to cast their
votes. The principle was right, and
the civil servant who did more took
his official life in his hand aud had no
reason to complain when it was adjudged to be forfeited. But with some
Liberals. Liberal principle is for use
only wheu   it  pays.
Since the last appeal to tho
electors of the Nelson District
events in this Province havo
���worked a complete chauge in the political situation. The issues then have
been swallowed up in the greater is
Bues of today. Tho candidates may be
the same, but everything else has al
tered. The independent elector, the
man who appreciates and respects the.
privilege involved iu the franchise,
will rofuso to pledge his vote until he
fully understands all that the chnnge
implies. The ignorant and partisan
voter, tbo man who prizes tho franchise only because it gives nn nddi-
tional voto to the party to which he
belongs, will hnsten to pledge himself
according as his prejudice dictates.
It is desirable for many reasons that
tho result of tho coming poll should be
tho intelligent and deliberate couvie-
tion of the electors of the District-
It is more thun a contest between the
individual candidates, Much will de
poud upon it. It will in all probability decide whether the new political
methods introduced with the present
Government aro to be continued.
Oue word more. The peisonality of
the candidates is not to be considered.
They stand for opposite principles,
and the conscientious elector who feels
his responsibility will allow nothing
but those principles to determine his
action.
The Globe that it  is tbe schemers and  apparently   in   store for us and which
ire pullers who  sway the people, not  such a step would invite,
the people who sway the schemers aud ���
KEEP THE HALE LOAF.
Wo publish olsowhero a paragraph
from The Toronto Globe on the Senate.   A  second Chamber  iB designed
as a check on hasty, ill-considorod, ill-
conceived legislation, It will hardly
be doubled that, such legislation is
possible under onr popular form of
Government ; In Ciiiuidn we know that
it is, and that is sufficient as n reason
why one should be maintained in this
cnuutry. The ideu no doubt took form
nu The lilobe  suggests.    It  was to be
a protection against violent manifestations of popular projudiee and passion.
We Agree with The Globe further when
it says that the people nowndnys are
less to bo feared than tho scheming,
unscrupulous politicians. II. is precisely against these hitler that a Semite
is necessary, for often it is Iho schein
lug poiticinus who lint only rule in
Parliament but who influence the pon-
plo. We cannot, speak of thn exact
measure of it, but we have in British
Columbia at this very moment nn
example of demagogism ill the Legislature IWflying public feeling. That it
influences a majority wc can not toll,
but it is relied upon to carry for tho
party in power the three scats in Viotoria that aro uow being contested.
Should it be sncccHsful, nnd it may, the
scheming politicians will rule triumphant.
Tim people will bo right ninety-nine
times out of a hundred when thoir
reason only is appealed to. But whon
the appeal is to their passions and pro-
judini'H, whieh iu these more modern
tlmos is Hummed up in tho ono word
partisanship, no oue knows hotter than
wire-pullers. Four-fifths of the partisans will follow their lenders, let them
lead where thoy will. Iu the House
last session the entire party at the back
of one set of lenders rallied to the support of the   Yukon   Railway   Bill.    If
A democratic newspaper in the democratic United States, fond of toying
with little p iragraphs about the British nobility, publishes the following:
"The Prinoe of Wales pays at the rate
of   $1,750   per   1,000   for   his   cigars.
tho question hud been submitted to the These precious weeds are seven   inches
country,   four fifths  of   the partisans long."   Our contemporary did not get
would have oust thoir votes, uot in fa- it   right.    The   cigars   are   seventeen
vor of the Bill, hut in favor of the lead- inches   long,   and   cost   |175,000   per
ers who introduced it; its defeat would thousand. His Royal Highness smokes
have been due to   the remaining fifth, aud gives  away   a thousand   of  them
to all the partisans  on   the other side, | every week,
and to the great   mass   of independent
mass
voters who do their own thinking.    A
second Chamber  is   necessary   against
this influence   of   the leaders, against I
this power which  can   compel a piirty j
to swallow anything that is   adminis- j
tered to it.
It is not the people, therefore, that
are to be dreaded, so much as it is the
Behemers and wirepullers who pi iy upon their passions aud prejudices. The
Globe may go so far as to admit this,
but will reply that the present Canadian Senate takes care only to oppose
the schemes of one party, and that being partisan it fails in its whole duty
and ought therefore to be abolished.
But that does not follow. Better to
have a Senate that will oppose the
schemers and wirepullers of one party
than to have no Senate to oppose those
of either. Better to avert half the
evil than none of it. With p. partisan
Senate, the country is at least protected against the rash legislation of ono
party ; let us hope that with the increasing honesty and independence of
the electorate the Senate will cease to
be partisan and will offer itself as a
protection agaiust the rash legislation
of both parties. In the meantime
there is something gained in keeping
the half in check.
CURRENT COMMENT.
EVIL DAYS AHEAD.
There was introduced into the Legislature at Viotoria the other day a quite
harmless looking Bill, marked by excessive modesty on the face of it, and
containing hut one clause. It reads as
follows:
"1. Wherever,'by any statute, the
Lieutenant-Governor hns power to ap-
Doiiit a member of any board of directors or of any other board or publio
body, and any such appointment has
boon made, the term of office of such
person so appointed shall terminate ou
the thirtieth day of Juno next, and the
Liouteiiant-Qoveruor-in -Council may
appoint a successor for a term of one
year from said thirtieth day of June,
anything in such statute to the contrary not withstanding. This section
shall not apply to any appointment
which tbe statute authorizing tho
same provides shall be made for a term
of oue year only.''
Tho Miner does not protend to know
how far-reaching iu its effect this mny
lie intended to bo. On this poiut we
prefer to quote the opinion of The Victoria Coloniat, which, although an uncompromising enemy to the party in
power, has intimate knowledge of the
situation and is manly and straightforward in itB opposition: "This is
the most wholesale piece of spoliatiou
ou record. It is also another exhibition
of the cowardliness of this Administration. The desire is to inaugurate a
clean sweep, hut the Government has
not tho pluck to do the thing manfully. It thrusts the Legislature forward und makes it do the dirty work:
When June !i0 comeB, the Government will claim that they have dismissed no one, thnt the offices have
simply become vacant by the operation
of law. und sot to work to fill the vacancies with their friends. Thoir
friends uro to stay in office for a year,
for the act so provides, so that no matter what sort of inonpablos may be appointed, no matter how they msy prostitute their positions for political pur-
poBOH, the appointees of the Government will bo safe in pownr for a full
year. If the outrageous character of
such legislation is not evident to
.���my one wh.i reads tho Bill which will
be found ,in our Legislative report
there is no use iu milking any argument agaiiiHt it."
There have   frequently   boon   rather
Alarming advances  towards iho adoption of Ihe Hpnils   systom   in  Camilla,
that prenioiOOS   system   of   American
growth; but this is   the first  installed
on record of ils recognition by an English-speaking   Legislature,   Truly    it
can be said that thiH Province,   which
is distilled   to   be the   grontest of   the
Dominion, has fallen   upon evil   days
Wo   do   not  know to what extent the
people   are   beginning   to realize thiH,
but unless they soon manifest a disposition to protest   against it   thoy  will
find themselves   involved   in evils the
consequences of which   will be felt for
many a day.    The snfo and respectable
British system of   a   permanent  Civil
Service   iH   to   bo sot  aside   for   Hint
spoils system   which   for   two generations and more has boon tho disgrace of
Amorican   politics.    And   a   Minister
of the Crown, from a  public  platfoim
in the capital   of   the   Province,   has
bccil inciting to rebellion by declaring
that ho would   resist   the right of   the
Crown to   disallow    local   legislation.
Those are but,   un earnest of what  we
may expoct.    Mr.   Hume is coming to
uh in thu name   and in behalf  of  this
pnrty in   power, Seeking our   oiidorsii-
tion; if wo give it, wo ninko ourselves

It in Ibe Schemers Who Want Watching.
Most of Ihe theories about a second
Chamber seem to take their rise in
a belief that the interests of tbe State
are continually threatened by violent
manifestations of prejudice and passion on the part of the people. That
does not describe tbe state of affairs in
Canada today. Our chief danger arises
not from the mob but from schemers
and wirepullers who do their work in
the lobbies of Parliament and other
dark places. We know of little, if
any, of the bad legislation of this
country that is to be ascribed to the
much-feared "tyranny of the mob."���

Provincial Bights and Dominion Wrong*.
The London Advertiser asks if the
legislation proposed in British Columbia to exclude from the Province
workmen from other parts of the Dominion, is not "carrying Provincial
rights too far?" There does uot seem
to be any right about it, constitutionally or morally, and if necessary the
Federal authorities must intervene to
save the Province from tbe consequences of such outrageous action.���
Ottawa Free Press.
A New Meaning to it.
A correspondent in the London
Times puts a new interpretation on
tbe famons saying of the Duke of Well
ington, that the battle of Waterloo was
wou in tbe playing fields at Eton. He
points out that at that time outdoor
sports, such as crioket and football, to
which tbe Duke is commonly supposed
to have referred, had little vogue and
little hold on either boys or masters.
The Duke's reference, in the correspondent's opinion, "was solely to that
portion or corner of the playing fleldB
in which the school fights used to take
plnce " There is a certain air of prob
ability about the explanation, but it
will hardly find general acceptance in
the present day, when school fights are
not looked upon with as much favor as
they were in the dayfl of our more
pugnacious forefathers.���Montreal Gazette.
Free Speech Without Muskcls.
The impunity with whioh some
prominent Cubans are criticising the
acceptance of office by their compatriots
under American administration will
be a wholesome lession for them. To
gain the right ot free speech and at
the. same time to lose the right of revolution will no doubt seem iuoongru-
ous, as in their type of politics these
two rights mean about the same thing.
Under our rale they may criticise
all they please so long as they don't
change suddenly from words to musketry. The animated moderation
which is tho rule of political discus
siou in Anglo-Saxon countries will be
the first thing they will have to lenrn,
and if they can, they will be fit for
self-government. ���N. Y. Commercial

GRANT   ALMOST   WON
strata   this   before   the season is over.
Tbe Junior team from here was defeated on Saturday by the Sandon
team, tlie scoro heiuy six to nothing.
Sandon thereby won the championship. The hockeyijsts returned yesterday aud speak in the highest terms of
tho hospitality extended them at Koss-
lnnd. A banquet was tendered the visiting hookeyists on Saturday night,
Mayor Goodeve of Rossland presiding.
It was a very enjoyable affair.
Rosslaud will please remember that
Nelson will have a blow-trot of its own
on Dominion Day and that it will endeavor to make up in summer sports
what it lacks in those of winter and

""'   of West
Kootenay District:
His Curling  Brought   Him   Very   Near
Several Prizes.��� ^he Hockeyists
Get Nothing-
Rossland's 'winter carnival of 18il!l is
over aud will go down into history as
a big success. Tho people of the progressive city were most energetic and
enthusiastic in carrying out tho carefully made plans aud the large number pf visitors from other places contributed largely to the success, and
greatly enjoyed themsolves in so doing.
There were four days of solid sport
and the only fault visitors have to find
is that there was so much going on
that there was no time to rest. But
that is not a very serious fault whon
one goes away to have a good time.
The reoeption oomniittee put everyone
on good terms with himself and madi
all the visitors feel perfectly away
from home whioh is much preferabh
to that proverbial "perfectly at home"
that is regarded as tbe acme of hospitality. Nelson sent a large contingent
of people, BOine of whom participated
iu the sports and tbe others enjoyed
themselves as spectators.
Ab far as competing with Rosslnuii
at ice sports is concerned Nelson is uot
a brilliant success. This oity tackled
the mining town at almost everything
athletio on the programme and quit
just about where it started. But thin
is not to be altogether wondered at.
Nelson has a variety of winter thai
comes and goes intermittently-���coming at the time that wiuter sports are
arranged for and going wheu they an
to take place. The odd weather this
winter has beeu of but short duration and neither at curling nor hookej
have Nelson players had an oppor
tunity to fit themselves for competition with clubs that enjoy almost constant cold weather. But when it comes
to anything artistic Nelson is to tin-
fore. Thomas Lillie captured tho first
prize for tbe best gentleman's costume
at the big carnival. Tommy T. Galon,
won tho first, prize in ihe boy's coasting raoo. These two firBt prizes represent the only contests in which Nel
sou came out ahead.
Iu curling the   riuks from here  did
not expect   to   do   a  great deal as tlie
players have   had   practically no practice this winter aud  some  who  went
have uot been curliug for   years.    Bul
wbntevor hopes they had  wore dispell
ed by the   very   soft condition of  the
ice which rendered really good curling
impossible.    The rink  skipped by   \V.
H. Grant,   of  Nelson,   however,   dirt
very well, coming up to near the finals
iu nearly  every event.     In the Graud
Ohallengo  competition,    tho most important in the bonspiel, Grant won bis
first throe games, losing to Beamish ol
Rosslaud in tho semi  finals.    Beamish
aud Morkill will play off tor   the  trophy wheu tho ioe gets good.   Theother
Nolson   rinks   wore closed out in  the
first draw.     Iu  the Walkerville  oon-
test Grant  was again the only Nelson
skip to get  out of tho first draw.    He
won three gamos   in   the  competition
and   in   tho   finals   lost  to Grimmett
of   Sandon.     Grant    secured    second
prize.    Skip Peters wbb   tho only Nelsou man after  the   All Comers trophy
aud   ho was   closed   out   in  the  first
round, Wuugh of Kaslo, boing the ultimate winnor.    Skips Tamblyn,   Peters
and Russoll went after the Consolation
cup and all tho   oonsoliitiou   they   re
ceived was ono moro defeat each.   The
oup stays in Rossland, the finals for it
taking place  when   tho   ice   is  good.
Grant again roachud   tho finals in   the
Hudson's   Bay   cup   and then lost,  to
Brown of Revelstoke.    He got  second
prize.    The   Tuokott   contest   is  Btill
undooided but no   Nelsou   rink   is  in
tbe fight t->r it.    It is unfortunate that
Mr. Grant did not win one  of the trophies after doing so well.    Iu his rinli
wore MesBiu   T. Lillie,   .Tames  Law-
renoo   and   B. Whalley.    Most of  the
ourlers returned   home  yesterday  and
report having   had   a   splendid   time.
The Victorias   ot Hossland won  the
sonior hookey   championship by   beating the RosBlnnd's on Saturday  night
by two   goals   to   none.    NelBim  was
closod out iu its first match  on Friday
night.    Tho  team doos not feel soro at
their   treatment,   and   havo   no   oom-
plaints to make but,   the   fact remains
that they by uo mentis received fair decisions iu their gnu o   with   tho   Vic
torias.    If  tho umpire had  boon   proficient   tho  Nelson   team would have

GENTLEMEN-The seat for thi
riding being again vacant by the ie-
signation of tho Hon. J. Fred Hume,
at the earnest requeBt of a large number of the electors of this constituency,
I offer myself as a candidate to represent you in the Legislative Assembly.
I advocated iu my last candidature,
and still propose to support, the building of useful roads, trails, and bridges,
in the district, and was pleased to see
last year the cm: meuceitient of some
public works of that nature. I regret
to find that practically all such improvements in this Riding were
stopped upon the acceptance of office
by tbo Hon. Mr. Hume. With regard to
public buildings, appropriations were
made laBt session for additional school
accommodations, and a Laud Registry
Office in Nelson. As to the former
the sum voted has been expended iu
a dilatory manner greatly inconveniencing the Trustees, teaching staff and pupils. As to the latter no attempt has
been made to supply the grave want.
It may be remarked when in Opposition the Hou. Mr. Hume strenously
pointed out the inconvenieuce of having to register all documents affecting land, in Victoria, and advocated
the buildiug of the office in Nelson,
I submit the legislation already
passed during the pretent sitting of
the Provincial House of Assembly is
against tbe interest of our miuing industry. The Alien Bill prohibiting
aliens from working in the placer
mines of the Province is even now hav
ing a retarding effect, ou the development of onr metalliferous mines. It is
interpreted as the introduction of the
t li in edge of the wedge, towards, prob-
bly next session, introducing legislation to prohibit aliens from prospecting and developing the minoral resources of Kootenay. I may add that
tho miners of Kootonay view with
alarm any radical changes iu the mining laws as calculated to prevent, the
introduction of capital, thereby contracting tho field of labor.
Tho privilege formerly existing of a
free minor who had inadvertently air
lowed his license to lapse, being reinstated in his rights upon the pay-
mont of a small fee, was heartily endorsed by mo; aud the withdrawal of
this privilege by the Minister of Mines
was an arbitrary act which has already resulted in loss to miners, pros-
peotors and others, and is calculated
in the future to operate disastrously
t.) those interested in mining.
I am opposed to the hasty passage of
mining legislation without giving Ihe
mining communities tho opportunity
of considering such measures, Such
hasty procedure is unusual in this Province and detrimental to the best interests of our groat mining industries.
t oonsidor the parsimonious administration of public affairs inaugurated
by tho present government, is calculated to seriously endanger elneonoy of
tho civil sorvice and hamper the transaction of publio business,
I advooatu a change in tho mineral
ant to compel all partners in a mining
claim to bear their share of Ihe assessment work, or forfeit their interest.
I am in favor ol' farther extending
the public school Byi oni, and placing
greater powers in tho hands of the
school trustees in organized localities.
thereby increasing the efficiency of the
school.
While opposed to a large portion of
the legislation intrortno id by the pros
ent Government, I am indopondanl
and intend if elected to support in
Legislative Assembly measures, no
matter by whom introduced, which are
for the benefit of the Province and will
especially give my support to whatever may assist, in developing and tend
towards tho prosperity of the Kootenay District. I wish to deal fairly
and openly by the doctors and think it
right for mo to add that I am a Conservative aud if in tho future party
lines should be drawn, I will be found
allied with the supporters of that,
party.
Yours Faithfully,
A. S. FABWBLL.

Tin 1- Long Mtim��� Summer* ui
DayleM Winter* ��� The (intherlng
Dnik and the Breaking; Dawn���Th*
Luxury of a Sleeping Bag.
There is such a perverted Impression In
tho popular mind about the nctuiil arctlo
conditions that I always find itdillicult to
impress my listeners with a real knowledge of polar phononiona. Tho surroundings nre, of oourse, wild enough to satisfy
tho most savage longings, but It must not
be Inferred that the tomporuture of tha
air Is always below zero, nor that the land
Is completely buried by perennial snow,
nor that the son Is always covered by
paleocrystlo ice Hoos or mountainous ice
masses. During thn low arctlo night suoh
conditions are fairly constant, but for
much of tho your the gonial rays of th*
sun are felt.
Our headquarters (the first Poary expedition) In 1891 were pitched on the
northwest oonst of Greenland, near th*
seventy-eighth parallel of latitude, which
is about midway between the north pole
and the Arctic circle. In this latitude th*
seasons are briefly as follows:
A long nlghtless summer day of nearly
four months and an extended dayless winter night of nearly four months. These
periods uro separated from each other by
a season of advancing night during th*
autumn when the sun gradually recedes,
but reappears for a shorter period every
suooeoding day, until It finally remains
bolow the horizon on Oct. 25. In th*
spring there Is a similar period, but It is
the dawn of the coming day. The sun
renpponrs on Fob. 14. It first remains
only a few minute*, but each sucoeeding
day It rises higher and sweeps more of th*
southern sky, until about May 1 It re-
luuins above the horizon, and then th*
long arctlo day with Its silvery glory begins.
The speciflo effects of cold and darkness
and light are difficult of analysis, more so
among the members of our party than
among the native peoplo and animals.
The effect of isolation, of ohango of food,
clothing and habits of life, Is so potent
that any physical or mental peculiarities
must necessarily Include these elements.
Tbe withdrawal of hoat is so gradual
that the animal organisms have an opportunity to protect themselveB. During tha
summer (the only time when the extreme
north is accessible) the temperature and
some of the metoorologlcal conditions are
much like our March und April weather.
Incredible myriads of birds In summer
plumage, fresh from the temperate zone,
now congregate on tho off lying Islands
and moss covered rocky cliffs, but with
the first warning of the polar night, as th*
sun drops below the southern sky, they
quickly emigrate to a more congenial
land, leaving apparently lifeless the cold
shores which have been animated by theii
wild shrills of love and joy Thoir powers
and tnstinots aro such that they have only
to seok the lands which are best adapted
to their manner of living. Many of the
forms of sea life are able to do the same,
but men and all other land animals must
mmum and beoome adapted to the changing conditions.
Tho polar bear ohangeB his fur during
tho summer to protect him from the expected cold next winter, but life is to him
an awful strug^lo during the long night.
Nevertheless he early develops an ability
to fast for prolonged periods, whioh Is a
faculty possessed by all the other arctlo
land life. The nearly complete oovering
of tho sea by the winter Ice deprives him
of his accustomed source of food; hence
ho must eithei hibernate or find his way
far out over a lifeless sea of ice to the
open water, where varying fortunes may
put him In possession of an unwary
meal But with all bruin's Ingenuity and
hard earned adaptability long periods of
famine are always before him.
The native people, like the animals,
have evolved a system of life and adaptation to thoir habitat which could not be
much Improved by civilized aid. They are
able to withstand long periods of famine,
like the doer and bear, with no apparent
injury, exoept a loss of bodily weight.
Their cutaneous circulation is always profuse. The muscular outlines are largely
obliterated by an envelopmont of flbro
fatty tissue like that of tho 6eal and walrus. The Intestinal capacity is greatly Increased to afford greator surface for th*
absorption of nitrogenous and fatty foods.
I shall always remember our camps
while traveling over the trackless wastes
of snow during this period, particularly
the stormy scones. We undressed in the
open air, crept into our sleeping bags and
with a rare delight strotched out upon the
virgin fields of snow for a long sleep.
Thore was nothing but tho high blue sky
above us and often thore woro many hundred feet of snow und Ice beneath us. At
first, after reclining, we were nearly stiff
from cold, but this was soon followed by
a glowing reaction, when we woro oon-
���clous of bounding streams of heated
blood sent throbbing through tense artor-
luB. Wo folt doubly the wild pleasures of
primitive life, as wo beard the roaring
Riorum and felt the snow charged winds
blasting ugainst our protected bodies.
Such storms always brought us to Bharp
oonsoloiisncHH of tho superb animal comfort, as comforts go In the arctlo. All of
this served to enhance our admiration for
tho wonderful mechanisms of tho human
body. Nothing could bring oue to a keener
realization of this than our experience.
To feel tho heart force heat und life to tbe
surface while resting over and sometimes
under a blankot of protecting snow Is to
feel tho electrlo glow whioh for the want
of a better term wo call lifo.
In conclusion I wish to emphasize the
fact thut it 1b not tho low temperature of

TIRED OF LOSING   MONEY.
New York, Jan. 28.���Tbe Franklin
Niitiumil bunk of this city will, it
is said, probably go into voluntary
liquidation about March 1. This is
not through any insolvency, but according to Director JanieB, on account
of tbe bank not making profits sufficiently largo to warrant continued existence. Mr. James said today the bank
was too small to successfully compete
with other bunks in its immediate
vioinity. He added that the bank was
in good financial condition. This action of the Franklin Bank was not unexpected in bunking circles of this
oity. Ellis H. Roberts, treasurer of

"Von can't keep a good thing
down," said A. H. Kelly, of the Exchequer, to a Miner reporter on Saturday. As he declared himself he smiled
a smile that means five cents a share
to evory man who hold Exchequer
stock. For Exchequer is on the boom
again. It Iiiih jumped from 10 to 16
cents, not stopping midway for 24
hours even. The showing made by
the mine itself, nnd also by the Athabasca, is responsible for the upward
teudencv in   tho   slock.    Tho   Exohe-
tho arci.io from which explorers Buffer.    It   quor ih to bo floated   on   the   Toronto
is tho long and lnt.eiiso darkness and the
Inability to carry sufficient food and ncous-
tomod aids to porsonul comfort. lint this
Is easily counterbalanced by tho noute passions of life as they uro brought out by
the prolonged noonday splendor after resting In the long darkness. The white
lights and dark shades entering into the
soul make life a long dream���the spirit
now effervescing, then smothered again,
almost frozen, only to be tluiwod out for
an ascent Into un atmosphere of heavenly
purity. In my judgment polar grandnoss
