St. John, Nfld,, Feb, 14.���Capt.
Delaney, commander of the steamer
Bruce, a powerful ice boat which
runs on the winter mail service between Newfoundland and Cape
Breton, believes tbat there is no
doubt that the Canadian liner Gas-
pesia is in a dangerous perdicament
in lhe Gulf of St. Lawrence, owing
to her not being fortified to contend
with ice lloes. He believes she may
remain frozen there for weeks unless the winds change and loosen
the floes and so enable her to
escape.

Presents you such a Valentine.
Mr. Hum'* won in a walk. Tbe nia-J
jority of the electors of Nelson Biding
want him to look after their inter-
sts in the Victoria Government, j
and they suid so yesterday in .1 manner
'hicb leaves no ro.im for possible
doubt, lie is their choice and as such
goes back to Victoria with a mnjuity
several times larger than it was bis
good fortune to receive upou Ihe occasion of his foinier election. Mr,
Hume has ample cause to feel proud of
bis big victory and there are none el.'*
will deny him lids privilege. He is
popular with bis fellow men nnd bis
popularity curried him through.
In Nelson, where Mr. Hume was
est known, the result was a surpri e
not a'.oue to the supporters of the defeated candidate, Mr. Farwell, but to
Mr. Hume nnd bis supporters as well,
i'hat a ninjoiity of iv! at. the hist elec
lion would be swelled to 186 wns totally
unexpected. At other polling placet
ihe Farwell vote fell off considerably
ut not as greatly ns in Nelson.
K action day in town waa ns usual
There were tbe crowds on the corners
aud about the court house, rigs of all
lescriptlous currying voters to nnd
from lhe pulling places, loud mouthed
individuals who had more niouey (bin
brains and wanted to bet it, and the
quiet worker who sees that votes are
c i-t and cast on the right si le, accord
ng to his point of viow. The candidates themselves were in the hands of
1 heir friends and weut where the moni
good could be done. Both parties were
confident until the first returns were
received.    Those were from the  Silvoi
Ring mine and gave Mr. Farwell a majority of tne, where a larger mnjorit"
bad been expected. This, lo the Far-
well nu n, was a forerunner of defeat,
but tiny still held out and hoped
against hopo that better news would l*e
rooelved from other points. Hut il
didn't come. Ores I OU was heard from
with a vote of 111 for Mr. Hume nnd 11
for Mr. Farwell, Waneta came with
a majority if lour (or Mr. Farwell,

count at the court house.   There was
no doubt nbout it, it was a IInine victory in town for it was Hume men who
Were cheering, and tbe Hume men ou
Baker street taw this end joined in tbe
celebration, and it was no short-lived
affair. If wns kept up until long in
the night and there were some of thsni
who combined IO celebrate after the
midnight hour,
A big parade was one of tbe attractions, Forty dozen brooms, carried
by as many men and boys, brought up
lhe tall of the procession, which was
bended by a carriage in which wen
seated Mr. Hume and his faithful lieutenants, John A. Gibson, Dr. Forin
and Mr. Wilks, of Rossland, Behind
this came two sleighs loaded down,
wall IHmie men, who Wore smiles the
width ot the street  and   whose  voices
threatened to give away long befon
bed time.    And  then  there were  lire-
c aokers, too���those left over by the
Chinamen���which were used in the

and helped out.

MONEY IS SCARCE.
Being
A High Rate of Interest  is
Paid in Dawson City.
Toronto, Feb. 1 *. A special
from Faith Fenton to the Globe from
Dawson City, under dale of January
i.|tb, says: Money is remarkably
tight here and to per cent per
month is quite a common rate of
interest, as high as 15 percent
being freely offered. A man coming in jusl now wilh a few thousand
ready money, could double it in B
few months. Tbe reason is chiefly
tbe delay of mails, which bas prevented any remittance reaching
Dawson. Only one public mail bad
reached Dawson,at tbe date named,
since September 22 last.
The local revenue Statement for
the first three months ef Commissioner OgVllvie's administration,
Sept. ia to December 31st last,
shows a tremendous drain in the
funds by sick and indigent. In these
classes Americans are very numerous, bui no distinction In nationality
is made. Tbe total receipts was
$38,5081 of which, piactically all
was from lines   and   liquor  permits

spent in support of the sick and indigent in hospitals, In sums advanced to such persons to leave tbe

Washington, Feb. 14.���The Nie-
I aragua Canal Bill was offered in
the House this afternoon as an
amendment to tbe Sundry Civil
Appropriation Bill by Mr. Hepburn
of Iowa,Chiarman of the Committee,
that reported it, and the leaders on
the respective sides are engaged in
a struggle which involves the fate
of tbe measure at this session of
Congress. After Mr. Cannon,
Chairman of Committee on Appropriations, served notice last week
that there was no time for the consideration ot the Canal Bill at this
session, tlie supporters of the measure determin d o force it on to the
Sundry Civil :is a rider if possible.
As soon as it \ us offered this afternoon, Mr. I'- -1111011 made several
points of c dcr against it. This
j opened up a long parliamentary
debate upon the point of order.
The debate on tbe points of order
lasted two hours today and was not
concluded. It promises to consume
several hours tomorrow. It seems
to be a foregone conclusion that the
chairman : \ tbe committee of the
whole, will sustain tbe points of
order so that the real test will come
up on the question of over ruling
the chair. Should the chair be
overruled there is no doubt that the
amendment will command a majority of votes.
The resolution of Senator Mc-
Knerny, Democrat, Louisiana,
declaring the policy of the United
.States Government in the Philippines
was adopted this afternoon by a
vote of 26 to 22. Several Demo-
crates, present in the Chamber,
declined to vote. The resolution is
as follows: Tbat by the ratification
of the Treaty of Peace with Spain,
it is not intended to incorporate the
inhabitants of the Philippine islands
into citizenship of the United States,
nor is it intended to permanently
annex said islands as an integral
part of the territory of the United
Slates, but it is the intention of the
United Slates to establish on said
islands a government suitable to the
wants and conditions of the inhabitants of said islands; to prepare
them for local self-government and,
in due lime, to make such disposition of said islands as will best promote the interests of the citizens of
United States and inhabitants of
of said islands.
The confirmation of the press reports detailing tbe capture of Iloilo
were received at ha War Department today with considerable satisfaction, While no apprehension
had been lelt as to General Miller's
ability to capture the capital of the
Visayun Federation, or,for that mat-
ter, anything else that was wanted
in the Archipelago, the reports of
strong entrenchments that the natives bad been constructing around
Iheil town, led to the Department to
tear thai the landing would a
bloodier affair than either ol the
battles of Manila. It was with
great satisfaction, therefore, that
Admiral Dewey's despatch was received, saving that we bad lost no
men and that the casualties among
the natives were much smaller than
at llrst reported. The fact that foreign interests in Iloilo arc being satisfactorily guarded is another source
ol gratification to the Administration. Tins forestalls criticisms or
danger of interference from any
foreign power which has all along
been a complication tbat has had to
to be considered as a possibility but
which il was intended lo avoid at all
costs. What the future will be is
scarcely safe to say. The President
has all along been in favor of the
most humane policy and il is not intended to fo lotv the check lo lhe Fi'i
ipinos with a war of subjugation if
lhe insurgents will allow  the   Gov-

MINISTER    STILL    MEMBER.
euleavoring   to   build   up   a  rival
town on a site owned by itself. This
is an old  trick of   the   Company's,
and not a very   creditable   one.     It
wants  everything   in   sight.     It   is
heavily bonused  by   tbe   people  to'
build a railway line, and uses all its
influence 'ind tbe advantage   of  its
position to crush out the  enterprise
of any individual or   company   who
may have been fortunate enough to
secure a site suitable for   a   town.]
It cannot endure   that   any   person
but itself will make a dollar  out of
the sale of lots at  any   point along
its line of railway.    Should   settlers
seek out a natural site and   proceed
to build up a town, it grows envious
and to punish them will,if necessary,
remove a station and  bend   all   its
energies to destroy the rival and j Deeds That Won the
compel a general  moving   to property of its own.
It is hard to deal with an evil of
this kind. One can only entertain
a contempt for the grasping spirit of
a monopoly that refuses to permit (YCCpp ������J Pnokpf
anyone to live but itself. In nearly UWUtJ dilU. I UWlt-l,
every case it has the power to work
its will, and there is no law to prevent it. That it will succeed in the |
Movie case is almost inevitable
should it persist in its purpose. I
matters nothing to it that the modest capital of enterprising pioneers,
who have invested their all in a site
chosen by themselves, will be wiped
out; it must have all that is going,
let the cost be what it will. It will
say in excuse that the site chosen
is not the most suitable or convenient but it happens curiously enough
that in every instance the alternative chosen is the Company's
property and the Company
stands to gain by the change.
It is, perhaps, insensible to public
opinion, and unfortunately there is
nothing but public opinion to operate as a check to its rapacity. Let
us hope that in this case it will
prove efficacious, and that for
once the Company will act up to tlie
motto of live and let live and keep
its bands off Moyie.

The   result of the election yesterday  was not  at all to the liking of
The Miner. It believed, and believes,   that  Mr.   Farwell  stood in
opposition to principles and methods
which,if permitted to go unchecked,
will  work   grievious   injury   to this
Province. If our politics mean anything  at  all,   those  principles  and
methods  were   represented   in  the
person of the Ministerial candidate.
With The Miner the personality of
either   candidate   did   not count for
anything;   its    view   of   the   issue
between the two was far above and
beyond  any   consideration   of lhat
kind.
But the electors have judged and
decided differently, and to their will
we  are  all  obliged   to bow.    Tbe
strongest of Mr. Hume's opponents
will   excuse him   if he feels deeply
elated over his victory of yesterday.
For it was distinctly a Hume triumph, not  a Government triumph.
Mr.    Hume's    personal   popularity
gained him  the day.    His personal
popularity   was   helped   by one or
two  other  influences    scarcely  so
innocent in determining contests on
which the  character  of  Provincial
Government     and     administration
depend,    He was a Minister, and it
was thought that some local advan
tage  lay in that.    It was  a  sordid
view to take, and if it were to become general    government   would
speedily   be   reduced   to a game  of
grab.    Also  appeals  were made to
Nelson's    supposed     jealously   of
Rossland.    If   we   were   to defeat
Mr.   Hume,   his portfolio would go
to the Rossland member. We regret to have to believe that a number of votes   were  secured to Mr.
Hume   through   fear that Rossland
might  glory   in a Minister.    These
were influences, in active operation,
and  each   contributed its quota of
votes.
We do not deny to Mr. Hume,however, that the chief credit is due    lo
himself.    He is regarded as a good
citizen   and   a   good   fellow; why
bother with the  difference between
the politicians in face of that?    The
Alien Exclusion Act may be   wrong
in principle and injurious in its effect;
the trend   of    legislation   generally
may be prejudicial to the interests of
the mining industry; the Attorney
General may be disposed lo violate
the proprieties as they have been
understood in British Columbia; the
constitution itself may be Ih danger of
some rude and not altogether harmless buffeting; but bother all these
���is not Mr. Hume one of the boys
and shall it be said that he is defeated in the very house of his
friends? Truly it was a Hume triumph and purely as such he is entitled to the warmest congratulations. Nelson has done much for
him.    As he returns to his Minister- I,, |H *���!,.,��� r���r n., conrteay ofita Employe),

There is a -rrave objection in certain quarters that the City Council
is acting- on suggestions made by
the City Solicitor. It would be
interesting to know why a City-
Solicitor wis appointed, if it had
not been the intention to act on his
advice in matters requiring legal
knowledge. If the Council is expected to ignore the Solicitor, it had
better act consistently and first cancel the appointment and abolish the
office.

The members of the Board of
Works have decided wisely in suspending work on the electric light
Hume. Many citizens arc no doubt
put to inconvenience by reason of
the inadequate service, but better
this than the expenditure of money
on work that in a few months will
require to be all gone over again.
The trouble with civic improvements
heretofore has been that they were
designed according to the rule of
thumb and carried out with a jump
and a hurrah. It will bj money in
pocket if in the future we endeavor
lirst to understand what we propose
to do, and then proceed with it in a
businesslike manner.
