A LESSON IN IT.
Mr. Kenny's story publishd in Son-
day morning's Miner,although relating
to a very old and muob hackneyed sut-
ject, yet conveys a lesson that many of
ns even to tbis day have ocoasion to
stndy and whiob it would be well for
us to tnke to heart. The Pr3eident of
the Merchants' Bank of Halifax was
not the only person in Nova Scotia
wno believed that the building of tbe
Canadian Paoiflo railway would be
financially ruinous to the Dominion
and of very little oommeroial value.
He was bnt oue of many thonsands iu
all the Provinces. But the statesmen
in charge in those days of twenty years
ago saw with a clearer vision, and
prosecuted tbe enterprise in spite of
tho opposition to it. That opposition
was exceedingly clamorous; some of it
was .bitter, and not a little of the
spirit nt tho bottom of it still survives.
It *(s said that the onlooker sees
most oft the game. Perhaps this will
explain the superior discernment of
Mr. Kenny's Minneapolis friend. He
at least could see tbat the building of
our great railway was to be the making A> our oouutry. It was costing a
big lump of money ; but already we
can realise that to a large extent it bas
beeu repaid by those whom it has attracted to the Dominion, and that before many years it will be wholly re-
pn! I by tho many otbero that are yet
to cunt-, encouraged by the develop-
nient to which it gave life and pur-
pnse Aa ho foresaw, it baa made tbe
country instead of mining it. The
cost price will not be refunded directly and in hard ens) ; but the inorease
of lopolation and thu enormous expansion of trade, in whiob it has beea and
will continue to be the chief factor,
Will prove more than the equivalent
of nil that has been expended upon it.
2 .Mr. Kenny knew of tbe coal deposits ef the East. Through the Canadian
Pncilio railway we have discovered
other coal deposits in comparison witb
which those of tbe East are insignificant. He did not know that thero could
be lumbering interests west of Georgian Bay; the Canadian Paoiflo forced
British Columbia to the front, when it
was discovered that tbere were illimitable possibilities iu the lumbering
interest bere. Down on the Atlantio
they knew only of cod and herring:
our uutional railway has introduced
them to the salmon and halibut of the
Pacific Coast, whicb so far surpass the
fisheries in tbe East tbat tbe two are
not to be montioued in tbe same
breath. The Canadian Pacific discovered a new Province, of great extent,
and of resources that are destined in a
lew years to make it the riohest in the
Dominion. When one considers all
this railway is to the country, what It
has already done, is doing, and will
do, how paltry must seem the faultfinding in which so many Und it necessary to indulge! They rail against
it as a monopoly, forgetting thnt it bas
raised Canuda from an obsenre Colony
to a nation. Tbey baggie over rates
in the petty spirit of men who would
dispute accounts with an apple-woman.
They are unable to raise themselves to
the height necessary to appreciate a
great enterprise. It is the little things
only they have the intelligence to
comprehend ; beyond those they cannot
see. Perhaps the report of Mr. Kenny's talk with bis Minneapolis friend
will help them to a better understanding.
In this 1'rovinou the Lieutenant-
Governor-in-Council is given somo extraordinary powers in regard toigen-
erul administration. In bis publisher!
nldress to the electors of Vanoouver,
Mr. Martiu says he wonld curtail
these. The fact is they bave become
unpupului.'.aiid Mr, Martin knows it.
Government by Liontenant-Governor-
in-Counoil is not ns satisfactory to tbe
peoplo as government by a Legislature
elected by them aud responsible to
them. Knowing tbis Mr. Martin
pledges  himself  to  cut down  these
^S^Yet in the privacy of the
Chamber he prooures a Gov-
irrant for  the  appropriation
The towards the construction of
.u the constituency for which
Mr. Ryder is expected to stand. Governor's warrants are permissable by
statute, but only in oase of emerguncy.
It oannot be pretendod that the publio
interest would be prejudiced because
work on a Comox road could not be
provided for until tbe muting of supplies at tbe session of the Legislature
that convenes in July. The ense, therefore, is not oue of omergenoy, nnd the
warrant is clearly an abuse of the Ex
eontive authority whion Mr. Martin
pretends he would diminish. There is
emergeuoy, however. Mr. Ryder's
pro��pect of election is of the poorest,
aud he wauts the $4,000 as a propitiation to the eleotors. He makes no
seoret of this; in faot, he boasts of
having obtuiued it for this vory pur-
po6e. If the Lieutonant Governor bad
not Been a consenting pnrty, tho Province would hnve bean spared this fresh
scandal. Perhaps, however, be thinks
the emergenoy extends to him, and we
are by no means sore bnt he is right.
Sir Charles Tuppor is wrong in objecting to the "foreigu policy of tbe
present Govormneut," referring to the
increased preferential In favor of Great
Britain. For says Tho Vancouver
World, "whereas foreign countries tax
Canadian goods Great Britaiu itdmits
them free " Thnt is not true; not
true, thnt is, in tho sense conveyed,
and no donbt intended to be oonveyed
by The World, it would give the impression that Great Britain gives us
something in retnrn, that she discriminates in our favor. She does not. Il
she admits Canadian goods free, it is
beoause of a free trade policy adopted in
the supposed interest of herself and
that applies to all couutries alike.
That policy is not adopted out of regard for Canada or auy other British
Colony or possession. Onr goods go in
free, but bo do those of tbe Uuited
Statoa, of Frauce, of Germany, of Russia, aud of all other countries and nations on earth. We owe nothing to
Great Biitain for the free admission of
our goods, and therefore we get nothing for the preferential. We may find
profit in her policy of freo trade, and
our polioy of giving ber a preferential
may be wiso and just and good, but
it is well that there should be no misunderstanding as to either.
' When leaving his native heath to
take service with Mr. Martin as his
Finanoe.Minister, Mr. Ryder promised
a friend thnt he would wnte him soou
and give him a description of th i uew
and strange life be was about to enter.
He further promised tbat the letter
would be oue of "his own composure."
Naturally this quoted expression has
given rise to a good deal of comment,
not entirely flattering to Mr. Ryder. A
writer in The Victoria Times comes
to bis defence. "Familiarity with the
best writers of English," he says,
"accustoms men of light and leading
to use the words and phrases which
appear incorreot to many well educated
persons." If Mr. Ryder is a man of
light and leading tbere is no more to
be said ; but if, as is generally supposed, he is a man of very little light aud
no leading we oan understand his
happy accident in lighting on an obsolete expression, when it happens to be
the one most familiar with tho ingno"
runt and uuedncated.
Mr. Honston will run none tbe better for bis address, wbioh is a medley
of platitudes aud cheap socialism. It
exposes too glaringly the fact that he
is utterly iuoapable of an original
thought or suggestion. It serves admirably, however, as au adornment of
bis method of nomination. The first
Blip was to announce that he would be
a oandidate; th > noxt was to call u
oonvention to find a candidate, in connection with this introducing tbe
American system of prirnarias; then
be springs bis address as a further
guarantee that he is on the field, convention or no convention. All of
wbioh is very liko Mr. Houston.
We suppose the Library Ball has he-
come an established institution of the
oity. The lirst oue, a year ago, followed closely on the opening of the Library itself, and proved not only a
great social buooobh but added considerably to the fund it was designed to
aid Tho satisfaction which attended
tbat ocoasion has probably oncournged
tbo nianagiim <nt to try again, and uot
only so but to regard thu event as a
settled annnal oooorrenoe. Tn. Li-
brary is growing apaoe; but it is in
need of funds. It is yet far indeed
from being what its patrons hope to
make it, and what tbe requirements of
our population demand it should lie.
For many years to oome it will be in
need of all the funds that can be Mined for it. The ball on Friday night
next is to assist iu the promoting of
its healthy growth, aud will doubt
less be woll patronised.
The oantious voter will be in nn
hurry to pledge himself. There are
many questions of great gravity and
importance at issue in this election,
and the wise man who values his franchise and appreciates its purpose will
went to study tbem in all their aspects before deciding.
Victoria is promising to exoel itself
iu the next celebration of the (jneen'B
birthday. Of the celebration, The
Colonist says it "will be one of the
grandest nnd most pretentious ever
held in tbe oity." We only need say
that Kaslo is bocud to outdo the Cap
ital.

CITY COUNCIL.
Dr. Hall inserts the Opening, wedgo In
Decision of the Mayor's Authority.
There was a very gentle and lamblike meeting of the city oonnoil last
night. Tho mayor presided and there
were prefent Aid. Arthur, Irvine, Hall
and Morrison. The only thing of general interest was the Botiou of Aid.
Hall iu giving nctine of his intention
at the next meeting to introduce a bylaw which would settle the dispute between the mayor and the council as to
tho contention of tho formor that he
has powor to conduct the oity's bnai-
nes�� ns He sees (It. The cons d ration
of this bylaw will probably lead to a
few stormy seseions.
The publio works coiiimitleo presented a report re.iomniedlng:
| That a pipi sower be laid on
Willow Street from Wnter Street tn
conneotwithC. JisHkowitz's premises.
2. Tbnt the sidHwnlk on the west
side of Stanley Street be extended
from Richards to Dalbruek Street.
I). Thnt 4,700 feet of lnp welded
steel pipe bo purohased for water
mains.
4. That Hendryx Street, from Si]inn
to Mill Streets, be mnde passahle fnr
tenniB nilrt thnt a six-foot sidewalk he
laid on Hendryx Street between the
suid streets.
5. That tho oity hear the oxtra ex-
penso of connecting Thorpe & Com
pauy's premises with the Cedar Street
Be w nr.
6. That an eight-foot sidewalk be
laid en the east side of Wnrd Street
from Victoria to Silba Street and that
a oroasiug be laid on the east side of
Ward Street at intersection of Silioa
Street.
Consideration of this report brought
np the question of borrowing money
for street improvements. Aid. Irviue,
Morrison and Hall expressed themselves in favor of borrowing money to
pave Baker Street. Aid. Arthur was
by do menus sure tbut tbo peoplo
wonld vote the money but the matter
was not deoided.
The report was adopted, as was also
tho report of the Finance Oommittee
recommending the payment of various
amounts.
VaiiooB applications for public
works was road aud reforred to the
Publio WorkB Committee.
The mayor announced that the court
of leviaion, if hold nt the first date set
by the counoil, would be too early as
there were a lnrge nnmbor of objections being received. The original
dale was May 2nd nnd the conncil
changed it to Jnne 4th.
Aid. Hall gave uotice that nt tbe
oeit meeting of thu conncil he will
introduce a bylaw for regulating tin
meeting of the council and tbe general
oondnct of the business and nil othei
proceedings at its meetings and at
meetings of committees and for defining by wbat members of onmmittoes
tbe body corporate may be exercised.
Tbe city engineer was instructed to
prepare Bpecinoatious for the laying ot
a street orossing on Baker Stieet and
that tendeiB for stone for the same be
received by tbe city ou Monday, thi
ith mat., in time for consideration al
the next meeting of tbe council.
The question of macadamizing Haker
Street oome up and Aid. Arthur de-
aired to have teuders oalled for tbe laying of six blooks of raaoadam but tbe
mayor was in favor of the work being
done by day labor, but nothing waa
done and tho oouncil adjourned until
next Monday night.
