RECLAMATION
Interest Revived In Company's
Affairs Through Arrival
of Mr. Keefer.
A Review of the Record of a
Very  Extensive Land
Proposition.
***
h
Interest was revived here yesterday
in the affairs uf the Kootenay Reclamation company's affalis through
the ariivnl In the Oity of G, A. Keefer, of New Westminster,who wns the
company's engineer in the operations
on Kootenay river several yeurs ago.
Mr. Keefer has not heen Identified
with the proposition for seveial
ycars.ani! is now the resident engineer
in Hritish Columbia for the Dominion
government operating under the department of public worlts. His present visit to the city is made in this
capacity. Mr. Reefer's friends in
Nelson remember him, however. In
connection with the reclamation
scheme ami the subject is one with
which ho is, perhaps, more familiar
than any other one man In the Kootenays. The matter is history in this
district, but for the benefit of those
residents who have come to the country since the proposition flourished
aud waned, it will doubtless be of interest tu review the re lord of the
scheme which was in many respects
one of the most extensive propositions
ever floated in this section.
The Kootenay Reclamation company
was  a concern floated in England for
the purpose of reclaiming a large area
of land along the Kootenay river from
the point where it  re-enters Canadian
territory at Rykerts to the  mouth  of
tUe river at   Kootenay   landing.    For
the entire distance tlie land along the
river and extending   from two to   six
miles inland is low lying.   While   th.
bunks themselves   are high   from successive deposits   of   material   washed
downstream there are great   stretches
which the river   annually   inundates,
the water entering   from slonghs  at
various points and extending over the
entire area many feet deep. The Hoods
have deposited   silt for centuries   and
the result is thnt   the ground is wonderfully   productive  and    practically
inexhaiistable.    Between   the    points
Indicated   there   is  probably   100,000
acres of   land,    which   if   reclaimed,
would probably be unsurpassed in tho
world for agricultural purposes
The idea of reclaiming   the   Kootenay   nver   lands   lirst   took   definite
shape In the   mind   of   llnilie   Groh-
man,   whose   impress   is   left   in the
shape of tirohman crook opposite  Nelson.    He secured a charter to   reclaim
the lands fron. the headwaters of   the
Kootenay river to the point where the
river   enters   United States   territory
and from   the   point where   the river
re-enters Canadian soil to  the  mouth
of the liver.    While, nut  an   engineer
(irohman evolved  a couple   of ingenious schemes to effect his purpose.  Unfortunately both were opposed  to   the
principles   of   good   hydraulics.    Mis
plnn to diain the upper stretches   wus
to connect the headwaters of tho Kootenay  with   those   of   the  Columbia!
whereby   providing   for    the   surplus
water in the Kootenay to seek a course
to the ocean   via the   channel   of  the
Columbia.    The faot that the   sources
of the two big rivers are only separated by a narrow stretch of land know-
now as canul Hats   made   the   scheme
look plausible, Grobtuan built a canal
through the meadow   but   the   people
along the Columbia raised   an   objection   maintaining   that   they had all
they could accomplish  to   handle  the
water of the   Columbia   without   any
further   supply  f���u>   thc   Kootenay.
The   government   make   it  necessary
for the promoters of   the   reclamation
sche-ie to erect  a  lock  to control the
How and the first high  water   washed
out a  channel competely  around   the
lock leaving it stranded on  an   island
in midsteam. thus rendering this feat,
ure of the idea   abortive.    The   lower
stretches weie to be reclaimed   by in-
cieasing the How of tlie outlet   of  the
lake in such a manner that   tho   high
water each spring would   find an outlet without bucking up on   Ihe lands-
to be reclaimed.   To  accomplish this
Grohman started in to widen the outlet of the west arm opposite Nelson al
the point   where   tirohman   eid k en
ters the river. Considerable work was
done there, but all that was accomplished did not exercise the slightest
apparent effect, in fact hydraulic engineers pronounced tlie effort ridiculous unless the promoters were prepared to commence at Kootenay bridge
and open the channel upstream
as far as Grohman creek, a step which
would probably leave the west arm
of the lake and tho approach to Nelson unnavigablc.
In   1(101 the original   concern   went
uut of business, and the  present compuny   took   hole) of   the   proposition,
George Alexander of  Kaslo, being instrumental   in   interesting   a   strung
syndicate of Enlgisb capitalists in the
scheme.    Mr.   Keefer   became  identi-
licil with the proposition at this time,
and his expert report on the situation
was that the only   leasible   method uf
controlling   the water was by   means
of dykes.   In 1��U:. surveys of the lauds
were made and preparations  made for
the commencement  of   woik   in   the
following   year.    The   company    proposed to start by reclaiming a  section
Of 10,000 acres.    In 1803 and 1803 work
was actively prosecuted.    A cuuplej of
dredges   and ditchers were   purchased
and other plant secured.    From !>0   to
loo men were at work and it looked as
though   the success of the scheme was
assured.    In the-light   of aftei   experience it is apparent that  the company
made an error In   not permitting   the
engineer to follow his   plans   to  their
completion in one   season   instead  of
extending the work over several    sea-
sons as  was   done.    The   phenomenal
high water of 1894 found the company
unprepared,    Ihe   dykes    had     heen
built to withstand the  known   rise of
the river,but in 1894,as is well known
In Nelson, the river   rose in its might
ten feet higher than was ever   known
before.    The   dykes were   many    feet
under water, and were practically destroyed.    The company   had expended
8350,000   and their   outlay was to   all
intents and purposes lost.    When   the
question   of   repairing   tlie    damage
came up   the    directors   argued   that
they had no guaiantee that the experience of 1894 might   not   be   repeated
any year and that to ensure protection
uguinst such   floods   would   entail un
outlay beyond   the value of   the   land
;it that period. Thus the mattci   rested.
Meantime a reclamation farm had
been established near Creston and
placed in charge of a competent factor. This still remains and farming
is carried on successfully there at
the present time. Some 1,200 acres
are under cultivation and although
the area is under water each summer
the Hood subsides before August, after which tlie ground is seeded to hay
and vegetables on a large scale. Wo
rich is the soil, and so favorable the
climate of the section that before, the
frosts set in a fine crop is harvested,
for which u market is found readily.
Mr, Keefer believes that the day is
not far distant when thc reclamation scheme will be revived and carried to a Ruccessful conclusion. There
is, he says, no engineering obstacle to
the lands being reclaimed and that
when the country is developed to a
stage where agricultural land is in
sufficient demand to warrant the outlay he confidently expects to sec the
scheme revived and carried out.

To the Editor,���I left Ottawa on
Thursday last. Mr. J. Roderick Robertson and myself had several interviews with the uiinistei'6 and we left
with them a carefully prepared statement of the case in regard to our application fur a bounty in favor of lead
refining.
We were promised that a government measure would be introduced before the close of the present session,
which would substantially meet our
views. It was intimated that about
10 days would elapse before the bill
could be brought clown.
Mr. Robertson will arrange to be in
Ottawa at that time and will have an
opportunity of making suggestions. I
regret that I found it impossible to
remain but I have every hope that the
government measure will be entirely
satisfactory. I write this for the information of my co-delegates and for
the information of tho various bodies
which were represented in our mission
to Ottawa.

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Montreal,April 29',���A private letter
brings news that three Canadians on
tlie S.S. Montfort died before reaching
Cape Verde islands. The men who
died were Staff Sergeant Purdun, of
Montreal and formerly of the Canadian Mounted Rifles, and Troopeis
Mann of Montreal, and Patton of Toronto. Pattun was an Englishman,

The assurance that the C. P. R. will
build into the Lardo district this summer has had a remarkably stimulating
effect on the  outlook for  tho   season.
While the majority of   Lardo  mining
properties are silver-lead  propsitions,
and henco affected   by   the slump   in
lead, the country will   go   ahead, for
the  property   owners   interested   are
bunking on the prospect of a turn   in
the market for the  better   before   the
railroad   is completed and their properties on  a   shipping   basis.    Hereto'
fore the Lardo has labored   under the
burden of transportation charges such
as would   have   deterred  the development of any camp.    It   has  been   the
rule that on under $00 would not net
theshippersaiiythingbecau.se   of   the
heavy charges for getting the product
to   the   reduction charges.    As a   result of this only a few   of   the   richer
propositions   have     shipped   in    any
quantity.    With   the railroad   as   far
north as Comapiix the   properities   in
that   district can   ship 830   to 833 ore
and realize a proHt.    This means that
a score  of   propositions   now   in   the
prospect stage will bo developed   to   a
shipping basis as rapidly as   possible.
Already   plans     are   being   laid   for
work on a number of   paitially developed groups in view   of   which   it   is
reasonable   to   predict   a more or less
marked boom fur the   Lardo*    The reports from the   district   indicate that
mining men are coining   in   on   every
boat lu be on   the   ground   when   the
season opens up.    At present  the sca-
Bon is not begun, save in the   case   uf
properties Wing on the   lower   levels.
On the hills the snow is still deep and
thin may he expected to continue until
Junu 1 or thereabouts.
The people of the country are by
this time thoiougly coiiviuced that the
C. P. R. ia in earnest with regard to
railroad construction and arc looking
forward with keen interest to the
commencement of operations a few
weeks hence. A brief resume of the
mining operations which may be anticipated during the ooming summer
necessarily embraces reference to the
appended.
In the Poole creek section, on Mohawk creek tributary to Poole is the
Beatrice group which has achieved
more or less notoriety in recent years
through the litigation arising out of |Q_lden
the.   deals   connected   with    it.    The
ers aud Fulin
silver-lead    propos
tons uf   high   grade ore having   been
shipped to Nelson from   time to time.
It is expected that   the   owneis   with
the low rates of transportation  which
will naturally   follow the   completion
of the road will open the   Beatrice up
at   an   early   date.    On   Poole   creek
itself is the Black  Hear group, owned
by a Detroit, syndicate, of which Lawrence   Depew, a   brother of Chaunccy
llepew, is a member.    The   owners of
the Illuck Hear   were  in   Nelson   last
year after a trip to  the   property and
expressed themselves as well   satistied
with the outlook.      Wc.U was carried
on there   up   to late   in   the   winter.
Lower down the creek is   tlie   Eclipse
group, owned by   Detroit   capitalists,
the syndicate including   some   uf   the
gentlemen   interested   in    the   Black
Hear.    Work     was   continued     there
until   the   end of ,Ianuary and operations   will   likely be   resumed    next
month.    At   the head of  Poole   Creek
is the Wild West prrperty   owned   by
an incorporated company.    A contract
has been let for 100   feet  of work and
the   contractor   is   preparing to go in
as soon as the transportation of   supplies is feasible. The Alma,an adjoining property, was bonded last fall   to
W, Jackson of Rossland aud incorporated.    It   is   anitcipatated     that   the
company, stimulated by the advent of
the railroad, will   commence  work at
an early date.    On   the same   lead   as
the Eclipse, Harvey Brothers of Lardo
have a tine showing.    They have been
at work on the proposition  all winter
and the property is now a shipper, although It   is not likely that much ore
will   be   moved   until the railroad   is
finished.
Over the divide on Lexington   creek
is the Lorie Star wihcli was purchased
lust fall by   a   Mr. Scott,    who   made
his headquarters in Nelson while representing an English  syndicate.    The
original owners, T. I. Dunne of Rossland and J.    E.   Magee, of   Comapiix,
received   two-tenths   of     the   capital
stock and a cash   consideration.    The
Lone Star has one of the largest show ���
ings in the camp, aud   has clean   ore
almost from the grass roots. The company's programme is to  expend Sn.nili)
in   development   work   this   summer,
which   will   open up the ore   body at
considerable depth.    On the same lead
are  the   Kitsap,   Jumbo   and   Frisco
properties.    The first is owned by   an
incorporated   company   but   bus    not
been developed   to any   extent.    Walter Myers, of   Port   Angeles,    Wash.,
one of  the owners, states that he will
have an expert in the country as sunn
as    the    snuw   goes    off,    to    report
on the property with a view to having
work started.    The Jumbo and Frisco
were acquired by   Mr.   Scott last   fall
and are grouped with the Lone   Star.
Across the valley is the Nellie group
bonded recently by the owuers, Hewitt Rostock,   ex-M. P., and J. E. Magee to J.   li. MacKenzie.of Rush Lake,
Minn.,who is promoting a company to
work the proposition.    The   Nellie   is
a silver-lead property , carrying   some
gold as do many of   the   properties in
the distiict.    The   work   to   date has
shown up a splendid'ledge   with eight
inches of galena and four feet of   eon ���
centrating ore.    Work will   be started
on the group in June. Above  the Nellie   is the   Wild   Flower,    owned   by
Messi-.Starkey and Allen of Camborne
and Comapiix   respectively.    It  has a
big showing, clean   galena   Iii   inches
in width being in   sight.    Work   will
be started   here on   Julie   first also, a
tunnel to tap the, lett-dat depth being
projected.
In addition to the above there are
scores of promising properties at various points throughout the district,
and uf the hundreds uf locations recorded the ensuing season's work is
safe to evolve a number of properties
that will eventually become shippers.
As has already been stated that, great
bur to the future of the Lardo has
hitherto been the almost prohibitive
cost of tiaiisportution. With Ibis obstacle removed by the construction of
the railroad the next few years are
likely to witness au era of development quite equal to that which the
Slocan has enjoyed. That this is devoutly to be wished for from Hie
standpoint if Nelaonites goes without
saying when it is stated that the entire .country will be tributary, commercially speaking, to the city.
Interesting Interview With Mr.
Graves From Our Special
Correspondent.
TRIAL AT GOLDEN.

Vancouver, April 39.���J. P. Graves,
manager of the Granby smelter ai
Grand Forks, and connected ulsu with
many of the principal enterprises of
tbe Boundary country, is In the city.
He is accompanied by A. C. Flumiuci-
felt, formerly of Victoria, the assistant manager of tlie smelter. Their
visit to this citv is one uf great interest to the people of Vancouver.
Mr. Graves is here for the purpose
of louking Into conditions and thc possibilities of the ore supply and other
features of the local trade,with a view
of establishing a large smelting anil
refining plant in this city. Yesterday
both gentlemen visited the business
and mining men of Vancouver and
endeavored to obtain as comprehensive
a view of all the conditiuns possible,
and they intend spending the early
part of next week in continuing tbe
same investigation. The company uf
which Mr. Graves is manager is very
largely interested at the present time
in the interior, and if it establishes a
large branch in Vancouver the event
may be looked upon as a turning point
in the history of coast mining. The
company's business has been a complete success from a business point of
view, and today, its operations...are
the largest and most successful in the
Boundary country. The Granby smelter is the lurgest in the province ul
the present time, aud hy a conso1' In
tion of various interests tba. company
now stand as one uf the wealthiest
and most progressive concerns in lin
raining and smelting Industry in the
west.
"We are here,"   said   Mr.    Graves-
in talking over the question laHt evening, "for the purpose of Investigating
the whole   question   of the establishment of   a smelter   and refinery.    We
have been for some time thinking ovei
the question   of   an extension to   our
worlts in the interior, and the investigations made on tbo coast und in mining districts in the east,as to the proper location, seem to point   favorably
to the coast, and as Vancouver   is the
largest eity we would probably locate
here.    We are simply here   now   un a
tour of preliminary investigation.   We
will look over the general   layout and
study up witli    your   bminess   people
and mining men various points affecting the ore supply and   other   details,
and see about matters of location   and
other things, so that we  will have all
the data   possible   to   lay   before   our
people in finally making   a settlement
of the matter.    Other   of   our officials
will probably be down here to gu Into
details, and if we Had   that as a business proposition it is worth going into
we will erect a   smelter   and   refining
plant   in   Vancouver.    We   have   met
several of the business   people already
and we will be here for three or   four
days more continuing   the    investigation.    1 have not been here since 1h_'.i,
Of course we are not yet certain   that
the time is ripe for   tho establishment
of a refinery but the   smelter will   be
erected as a   forerunner of  a refining
works, which is the ultimate object-
provided always that the scheme is   a
business-like une."    It may be  point-
ed out that the establishment of a refinery in Vancouver would bring  other industries, such as tbe manufacturing of white lead,   of lead   pipe,   and
many other brunches   such  as   copper
wire making, etc, to use tlie products
of the   new   establishment.    Then   it
would   be   a   great help   tu the const
mines.    The smelter   would nut   unly
provide them with a nearby and ready
market for   their ores, but would    induce capital to he   invested   and   the
people interested in the smelter themselves would naturallytbecome mure oi
less   involved in   the  mining business
itself as a whole.    Mr. Graves   thinks
that as the coast of British   Columbia
nnd Alaska is all a higlily-niiuciuli/cd
section, and capable uf much devclop-
! ment, and as it is to tlie future that a
'huge industry hns must uf   all tu look
i to, to locate on the coast und in Van
couver has many   advantages fur   the
reasons mentioned.
In the Interior, according to reports
here, Mr. Graves' srpolter is doing an
exceedingly large   business",   Tbe   capacity   uf   tlie Granby smelter is  040
tuns per day, that amount of ore being
actually treated at the   present   time.
Tbis capacity will almost  Immediately be doubled, preparations being now
under   way   (or   the   reconstruction.
The smelter   superintendent   has lately been uu a    visit   to the  states   and
bus gone   Into details there very thor-
uughly us tu tbe best Kind   uf   apparatus, and work  will    be   begun    in   a
short   time.    In addition lo the doubling uf the   capacity   of    tbe   already
huge smelter, there will be two   con-
vertors put iu for the   further relit ing
of the   matte   into what is   known us
blister cupper.    This will also be done
by the very latest machinery, and   la-
bor-saving devices.    Ihe entire works
are now nnd will be operated by elec-
tiicity. obtained   from   water  power
f'-inii the Kettle river,    and   the   machinery Is of the must perfect and up-
lo-dute model.    The mines  that   were
now supplying tbe ore were the Knob-
hill, old Ironsides, and   Victoria, and
tlie equipment of these would also  be
much Improved, in order thut the  Immense   supply   uf   2,000   tons per day
will be kept up.    When completed the
alterations  and additions   will   make
the smelter   one uf tbe   largest in the
country,and probably the most cheaply operated o. nil.
MR. TURNER'S
RETIREMENT
A Pathetic Scene Occurred in
the Local Legislature
Yesterday.
Finance Minister Takes Formal Leave of the House
and Country.
RANG   TELEPHONE    BELL
JANGLED      AT      LAST     NIGHT'S
COUNCIL MEETING���LENGTHY
DISCUSSION.
WHOLE     SITUATION      REVIEWED
AND   RESULT   IS   COMPANY
CAN  STRING WIRES.
The mutters nt issue between the
eity and tbo Kootenay Lake Telephone
company had unother innings at the
council meeting last, night. The subject wus broached in connection with
n letter from Melville Downey, secretary ui" Oi- port! ''"-'lie ui the
Methodist church, who requested the
council to grunt permission to have u
wire strung to the parsonage fur tlie
convenience of the ministers who
would be in the city shortly tu attend
the animal conference. The application wus granted in view of the
circumstances, und particularly as
tbe telephone company bus a dead
wire on the Josephine street lead so
that no new wiics should be necessary
to put in tlu' service.
Incidentally Hint old issue of the telephone wires on the city poles was reviewed   several   times, the old   arguments trotted uut uud practically  the
old   decision arrived al.    At   u   previous meeting   the    question    wus   referred   to    the    lire,   water and   light
committee with the tacit   understand-.
ing that tlie company should beallowfll
ed tu continue their   wires on poles in \
tlie outlying districts.    This was o<;n-
lirmed in a resolution last night, with
the rider that in  stringing new wires
no more cross-arms should be   put   up
or poles indented.    Some of the aldermen wished the wires taken   (town all
over   and   forthwith.     The  majority
seemed tu think thut this would work
un unnecessary  bardhsip  un   citizens
'esiding at a distance from tho center

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, April 39.���One of the most
pathetic and historic scenes ever witnessed in the legislature of Hritish
Columbia look place this afternoon
when Hon. John II. Turner, finance
minister and ex-premier,formally took
leave of public life aud bade farewell
to tbe house and to the country. If,
is an open secret that Mr. Turner will
shortly take up the' post of agent-
general in London,
Mr. Turner wus visibly affected
when, after delivering the budget
speech be proceeded to bid good bye,
lie referred tu the fact that this was
the thirteenth time he had delivered
a budget speech and this would pi ���������-
ably be the last. As he dwelt on ti..
changes which had taken place during the time he had heen iu public li.o
in the province, and to the great
stiides which had been made in tbe
development of Kootenay and other
parts of the province, he also referred
feelingly to the gaps made in tho
liouse by thc hand of death ; and as he
did so his voice broke and he was
compelled to desist. After a moment
r two he attempted to do so again,
but he had not proceeded far when he
was again obliged tu stop. These
pauses Were filled ill with liberal applause. Mr. Turner was obliged to
curtail his remarks very inifch, us the
strain was too much for bim, and he
finally sat down with a reference to
Victoria which had so long been his
home, A number of the members
were  ,-isibly affected,
Owing to the turn which the minister's remarks hail taken criticism was
disarmed, und the reply by Brown of
New Westminster was more congratulatory than critical.
Curtis, although joining in the general regret that the finance minister
was abuut to leave public life, made a
signal attack on tho government, his
speech being one of the shut pest arraignments which the government has
been subjected to this session. He
particularly criticised the government
for failure to collect data regarding
the prospects uf pulp and iron industries and to circulate this where it
would interest capitalists. He hIbo
intimated thut the government had
met the Crow's Nest Southern railway
and other bona fide business interests
not in a sympathetic way but in a
hostile manner, lie asked that the
same treatment be meted out to Dunsmuir iu his eoal interests as had been
exacted in connection with the Crow's
Nest railway.
Prior to the delivery of the budget
speech, Curtis made another effort to
explain why he had broken with Martin, but the speaker held that his re-
inuiks were too comprehensive for a
question of privilege.

Ml!. TURNER'S RETIREMENT.
The political news wired from the
cuast capital by The Miner's special
correspondent yesterday was confined
in a recital of the circumstances Bur-
rounding an anouncement by Hon. .1.
II. Tnrnei uf his retirement frum public life tu accept the Important pust uf
agent-general ul" Hritish Columbia.
It wus cjnite .natural that the members should be visibly affected by the
statement which fell from the lips
of the finance minister, lie ban been
prominently identified with the public life of th*- province fur many years,
and, with all his faults, has many
friends who will wish him success in
bis new Held of usefulness. It is interesting to speculate upon what will
happen when Mi. Turner steps down
and out. The bye-election which
will result over the appointment of
lii_, successor is bound to prove a very
hotly contested one; and the outcome
is by no means certain. Opportunity
will be afforded opponentH of the government to criticize the latter's policy and ask the people���not the house
���for a verdict; and it would not be
ut all surprising if that verdict proved an adverse one.
THE CENSUS.
The question of the. proportion of
rural to urban population is an interesting one and the three censuses of
Canada show u strong cityward tendency. The city population of Canada
in the different census periods was
as follows: 1871, is.8 per cent; 1881,
21.1 per cent; 18111, .8.T per cent. The
country population decreased proportionately from 81.2 per cent, in 1871
to 71.11 per cent, in 1801. There were
500 males and 404 females in each
thousand inhabitants iu 1891. In
1801 70 per cent, of the people of Canada could lead. The large pail of the
80 per cent.were children and Indians.
In I8HI 8ri.il per cent.of the population
wos Canadian burn, 11.1 per cent,
wus burn in Hritish possessions, and
the remaining :i per cent was foreign
born. These figures were but slightly
changed in 1891 as follows: Born in
Canada, 8..0 per cent., born in British
possessions 10.1 per cent., foreign
born 3.3 per cent. The religious con-
"Hii's shows that conditions aie rather
stable in this regard in Canada.
None of the denominations change
more than a fraction of 1 per cent, between 1881 and 1891. The figures in the
latter year were Roman Catholics,
41,21 per cent.; Methodists, 17.54 per
cent. ; Presbyterian, 1.1.03 per cent.;
Anglicans, 13.37 per cent; Baptists,
6,29 per cent. ; Lutherans, 1.33 pei
cent. Ncne of the other denominations reach 1 per cent. It will thus
be seen that each ccnsiiH has increased
in complexity und iu exactness, and
also that the science uf statistics becomes constantly mure interesting and
more valuable. Hy means of carefully-collected census reports Ihe
wealth of the country may be compared with that of another, and the distribution uf that wealth among the
different classes of the community ascertained. Attention is drawn to tbe
great natural industries upon wlijeli
ull wealth is based, and by the intelligent study uf these facts as presented
thc public no less thun the statesmen
can devise means, und ,_o into those
lines uf work which will result In furthering the gieat ends of humanity
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happi
ness,        	
J.   COMMERCIAL, FEDERATION.   |
"Commercial Federation and Colonial Trade Policy" is the title uf a
new hook just issued under the authorship of .John Davidson, M. A.,
Phil. 1).. Edinburgh, Dr. Davidson
has written a work whicli is in every
way worthy of a professor of political
economy, a position he occupies in the
University uf New Brunswick. He
has based his ideas upon personal experience of tiade questions in the Do
minion of Canada as well us upon the
opinions uf the best-known wi iters on
Colonial trade policy, lie divides his
subject into four sections in which he
sets forth England's commercial policy
towards her Colonies since thc Treaty
uf Paris, the commercial relations of
the Colonies to the Mother Country
and of the Mother Country to the Colonies, the relations of Canada tu the
Empire, and a consideration uf tlie
well-known muxim, ''Trade follows
the flag." I_ each instance Dr. Davidson submits his 'ulcus in u concise
und clear manner, his two historical
chapters being especially interesting
aud useful. Dr. Davidson devotes
considerable attention to the establish ���
ment of an Imperial Customs Union,
us well as the question of thc adoption
of a preferential tariff, lie. however,
appears tu he in favor of Improved und
cheaper freights and communications
as a means of binding tbe various
part of the Empire more closely together, rather than the adoption uf
a preferential treatment uf certain
commodities. He advocates the removal of the restrictions which prevent trustees from investing trust
funds in Colonial Government securities, und suggests thut the. Imperial
Government might within limits guar-
nlee Colonial Government debts und
thus prevent their conversion into '..'.
per cents. Amongst the numerous
problems which await solution is thnt
of Imperial defence, and in referring
to the relations uf Canada and the
Empire Dr. Davidson upholds that
Colonial public opinion is ready for
the consideration of a comprehensive
scheme. At the same lime he slates
thut the military function of the colonies is not tu maintain a large standing army or even tu make contributions tu the maintenance uf such an
army elsewhere, but tu see tu it that
they maintain the reserve in gnud and
available order, and un occasion tu
demonstrate to the gitcHigeucc department of other powers, as was dune
by sending uf contingents to South
Atriea, that the reserves uf Ihe empire
can he instantly called uut. Dr. Davidson describes the Governor of Jamaica in 1800 as Lord Nugent, but il
was Lieut.-Gen. George Nugent who,
mi his return lo England, wus created a baronet in 1800. The name of the
Right Hon. VV. E. Forster appears as
Mr. VV. E. Coster, hut these and a
few other slight errors do nut detract
from the general excellence of the
work.
plans uf mice und men" are sometimes
nut allowed to mature. There is no
doubt about the fact thut the government thought if could atl'unl tu thrust
aside the counsels of a certain portion
of its followers because it hud usKur-
nnces uf support from u section uf the
opposition. It bus bud a flout! uf
light thrown upon the path It bad
mapped unl und sume pitfalls have apparently appeared. The consequence
is thut u truce bus been declared and
negotiations are now proceeding
whicli may result in tbe complaisant
wing of tin' opposition being told that
its services are nut required, The
bieach in the government ranks may
be healed: hut bow about the ease uf
the opposition*,1
We cannot close withoul compli-
mening the designer of the plan of
campaign upon ihe brilliancy of his
conception nnd the comprehensiveness of his vision. Iu ull great crises
unforeseen contingencies arise which
it is impossible fur fallible humanity
to provide for. In tbis Instance the
arrangement of the pieces upon the
board wus perfeot. If tbey bad been

CURRENT COMMENT
A   BEAUTIFUL plot.
4'HhA.
Verily the game of politics in Brit
ish Columbia is a most exciting pastime. No man knows what a day may
bring forth. Political opponents
who yesterday were snarling across
the floor of the house at each other
like two catamounts to.lay may be
mingling their must sweet voices together in perfect harmony.
Apropos of the above*,has the significance of the revelations of tho past
few days been fully grasped? Do the
people, the dull, gullible people, comprehend the meaning of the perfect
unison which has been so apparent in
the warbliugs of the leader of the op*
position and the honorable member Cor
youth Victoria'.' Mr, 10 ber Is was wont
to Hy into a rage almost every time
Mr. Martin opened lii.s mouth in the
house. To judge by the proceedings
during* this session, no one would suppose that either of these honorable
gentlemen thinks the other capable
of shay ing even a little bit from the.
path of political rectitude. Tbe denunciations of the member for Vancouver have all been reserved tor Mr,
Turner,wbo is understood to be about
to pass to bis reward in a political
sense, and for Mr. Prentice, who was
evidently selected as the next man
whose services the country could conveniently dispense with, perhaps to
make room for the elect of the opposition. It was at one time contemplated to offer up Mr. Mclirlde as a sacrifice to the political ambitions of the
opposition leader and one of hi" faithful allies, but for reasons that have
not been made clear the original programme was amended aud it was decided thai tbe member for Kast Lil-
looet should be led forth. Upon the
devoted heads of the minister of finance and the minister of education all
tbe jibes and sneers and sarcasiys ami
denunciations whicli the opposil ion
leader has so thoroughly at command
have heen heaped, with an occasional
Hhot at Mr. McPhillips by way of diversion. The chief commissioner of
lands and works has received credit,
on all sides for the efficiency with
winch his department has been admin
isterod. He has heen entirely immune fiom criticism, whileagaust the
anointed head of the premier not a
shaft has been launched. With the
two incompetents in this incomparable cabinet laid aside and tbeir places
tilled by men of ability from tlie ranks
of the opposition we should have had
a business government indeed, and
Hritish Columbia would have gone
hounding along the road to prosperity,
Such a combination of brains and
capital would have compelled the support of the people and the objections
of recalcitrant members of thc house
could have been calmly Ignored,
It is even said that the rampant one
from North Nanaimo, he who bas
long carried a knife iu his boots for
the propose of dissecting capitalists
and fighting in tlie cause of tlie sous
of toil, was prepared to east aside his
principles for a time or something
else and bow down before the golden
calf.
Hut the denouement came too soon.
The game is oil'. Thc plans were
well and skilfully laid, but all that is
left of them is an illustration of (lie
fact once   more   that the   "bebt  laid
