August 1, Count   Cassini, the Russian
ambassador to the United States,  who
arrived heie lecently   will te received
in audience by the Czar on Wednesday
next.    The   ambassador   will   remain
here a fortnight  and will   spend   two
weeks at Marieabad and will then return to Paris. He has not yet seen the
finance minister, M. Dewette,  and   it
is   considered   that   Count   Cassini's
presence in St. Petersburg   will   substantially  change   tbe   situation   respecting the bugar duties. It is understood that tho ambassador   is   unable
to throw light on the question whether Russia would recognize the decision
of the   United   States   supreme   court
should   It   decide     against     Russia.
There is a disposition in several quarter   here     to   hope   for a   settlement
through   a   new commercial treaty.
Washington, Aug. 2.���The political
situation in the neighboring republics
of Venezuela and  Colombia   in   South
America and the pcssibili'y of war between these two   stales   is   attracting
considerable   attention in   diplomatic
ciicles.    Should   war actually   result,
the authorities in each country would
not only have to deal   with  their foreign enemies but also with   their   domestic foes, as each of   the   cr.inti'ies
now bus what practically   amounts to
a civil war on its hands.    Neither the
Colombia nor the Venezuelan legations
here has much direct Information and
tho cable reports are exceedingly con-
llicting.   The   ollleials al, the  Colombian legation   are   at a loss to understand the report of  President Castros

ground   that   his   country    is   being
invaded by Colombia.    The revolution
Marcus, Wash., Aug. 2.���At least
;so,(ion ties will be necessary, in building the 83 miles of railroad between
Marcus and Republic, says the Spokesman-Review, Poller Brcs. have the1
cortract of getting out these ties.
There will be more or less difficulty
in securing this material, as a good
part of tho road���especially that up
Kettle valley���extends through Indian
allotments and lands belonging to
homesteaders, or to the United Sl..t,es
government. Timber cannot be cut
or ���old from such lands.
It was thought that only one t_n-
nel would be necessary along the line,
but recent surveys show that another
will be required, A change was made
in Che original survey near Curlew,
which involvos the catting ot a tunnel about 250 feet long. To Johnson
& Andcrion was sublet the oontraet
of cutting the big 8(10 foot tunnel opposite Cascade city. These oontracLors
began work about two weeks ago.
As large a torce as can work to ad-1
vantage is now engaged. Already much
prngreis has been made on the headings and approaches.
Material 1or the big steol bridge at
Marcus has been ordered, but it will
not begin to arrive until sometime
late in tlie fall. The waters of the Coliuuliia are receding slowly, which
may delay tbe work of laying tlio

Spokane, Aug. 2.���"There is excellent reason to believe that tbo completion of the lead refinery in Briti.b
Columbia will mean a cut of at, leaBt
$3 a ton in the pieient smelter rates, "
said J. Roderick Rohertson, president
of the Britisn Columbia Mine Owners'
Afsociation, while in Njrthport on
"The management of the Canadian
Pacific railway stands ready to build
the refinery under the terms of the
bonus offered by the Dominion government, just as soon as tbe management gets assurances of a tonnage
sufficient tc justify the enterprise.
The bonus is 85 per ton for the first
year on 20,00(1 tons of pig lead to be
produced from Canadian ores. I estimate that the *ull production of the
Kootenay silver-lead mines is about
110,(100 tons of ore and concentrates.
That, should he far more than enough
to give 20,000 tons of pig lead needed
in order to get full advantage of the
subsidy. At a recant meeting of the
British Columbia Mineowners' Association we indorsed the proposal of
the Canadian Pacific people to build
the refinery, and We trust that they
will get th. bonus.

Mr.   Chamberlain,   while    tucking  a
motion   pro   forma   to reduce bv  one
hundreo pounds the vote out of which
the colonial secretary's salary will be
paid.   Sir   Henry    Guupbell-Banuer-
man, as   tbe Liberal leader, said that
in view of tne   patience   with   which
tho nation had for 21 months  endured
Mr.   Chamberlaiu's   policy   in  South
Africa, ho   thought   it   opportune  to
secure a statement from   the  colonial
secretary as to the war situation.   Be
went on to point out   that   Cape   Colony was   now   invaded   and   overrun
with Boers, and he  asked  what prospect there was of repelling the invaders, what the condition of Cape Colony
would   be   after   the  war,  what   the
prospect of  famine as a result of  the
government's "pohoy of devastation"
and where was   Cape  Colony's constitution, which   appeared to bim to  be
under lock and key since   the declaration of martial law.
Chamberlain replied that farm
burning had heen entirely abandoned
and replaced hy the policy of   concen
what brutal expression of the govern-
ment's policy," and be prayed tu God
that the resistance of the Boers might
be strengthened.
The debate was continued for an
hour afte.' Mr. Chamberlain's speech
and the amendment to reduce the salary ol colonial secretary was rejected
by a vote of 154 to 70.

Femle, Aug. '.'.���Active work is in ;
progress at tbe present timo to prepare tho ground for the erection of
400 new coke ovens at Morrissey,
where thoy havo a 40 foot ledge of
solid coal. Tho C. P. R. intend lo
build a standard gauge track to thiB
point from Elko and an electric tramway from Morrissey to the mines. It
is clannod that the coal deposits in
this district are larger and superior
to those in the Coal Creek district
which have received so much attention
during the last few years. In the
Elko district active operations are go

struction on the Crow's Nest Southern. The road will conneot near Jennings with the Great Northern, and
the work of construction in in the
hands of A. Guthrie & Co., o! St,

Regarding   the    announcement    by

all guilty pe.'SODS ol  "lis class if captured would be   court  martialed   and
e~eeu,ed.    Mr.   Chamberlain's declination was received with   loud   cheers.
* "Thei. seems to  be  an   impression
that we have come to some soit of   an
agieoment with the   lioers," said Mr.
Chamberlain in another portion of bis
speech,   "that   natives  are   not to be
omploved In tlrs war, but there is no
such agreement.    Incursions into protected districts inns, be more   severely
dealt with,  if there is to bo  'sniping'

Rubbish," cried an Irish member
the Morning Leader as "the opening

time is clarly at band if we rightfully
construe Mr. Chamberlain's words,
when Lord Kitchener will bo instiuct-

in theii hands. It is a sta.ie wbi~i
every gueralla contlict ultimately
reaches and it is to be deplored since
it may breed terrible crimes leading
to terrible reprisals on both sides but
the brigandage into which the campaign has degenerated must be stamped out at any cost,"
The Times says: "The Boers have
announced their determination to

While Canada's progress has been
steady and satisfactory there aro many
who would have liked to have seen it
moro marked and Protection, Free
Trade, Liberals, Conservatives���everything and everybody were abused as
being responsible for the slow growth.
The Commission on frieght rates is
rapidly showing that discrimination
in favor of American lines has had
more to do with it than all the rest
put together. Take Detroit and Windsor. The St, Clair river divides them,
the former being in tbe States and
the latter in Canada. Detroit is a
large, prosperous and handsome city
and Windsor hut a small struggling
town. One reason for the difference
seems to bo traceable to freight rates.
A Windsor firm buying dry paint from
Toronto and Montreal found that the
freight was 88 per ton more than to
Detroit. The add'tional haul across
the river lessened the charge to the
extent of Ss, and it was found that the
rate to Windsor was as high as to
Chicago. The rate on corn from Windsor to Toronto and intermediate points
is 10 cents per cwt., whilo shippe-s
in Chicago and intermediate American
points can reach Ihe same markets in
Canada at. lower rates.
The Windsor Record publishes a
list of the rate discriminations which
have been dealt with hy the Hoard of
Trado, and they show that the local
farmers, merchants aud manufacturers
have many causes of comolaint. A
manufacturing company doing business in Windsor complained that manufacturers and snippers in tho east got
rates coming thai way from 20 to 40
por cent, better than from Windsor
to points east, and thai tbis discrimination imahlcd tbe Montreal and Toronto concerns to do business right in
the country upon an equality with local manufacurcrs. while the excessive
rates east prevent the Windsor people
from entering the eastern market.
The statement was mado a'so that
rates quoted from Montreal and Toronto to Windsor were L5d to L'fic in
excess of the same commeditiea to
Detroit. To ovc-como this it. was pio-
poscd that shipments he made lo 11c-
troit and an extra freight rale he paid
for the return of the goods to Windsor. Upon enquiry it was found that
a car could be si'nt on to Chicago as
oheaplv as It could be returned from
Detroit to Windsor. A peculiar policy Is revealed in Ihe rate on grain
from Windsor .io Montreal or St.John.
I." the grain is for shipment abroad
tho charge is t:t.'a cents pei ewt., to
oither seaport, but if it. is for home
consumption the rate is 10J_ cents per
cwt., to Montreal and ft1.,; cent to St.
John. Some of tlio discriminations
mentioned show Hint, tbe way? o" railway companies are Inscrutable. The
Tato on spoke billets und hub blocks
from Novi In Mioblgan, to Detroit
is I cents, and to Windsor li-., cents.
The rate on putty from Detroit to
London is l.i oents, and from Windsor
to the same pninl ;,1 cents. To To
ronto thc rate is i; cculs from Detroit and .<u cents from Windsor,
while to Montreal it is .7.'.; cents l.orn
Detroit, and 58 cents from Windsor.
Thc rate on varnishes from Detroit
to London in SO cents and from Wind
sor 20 cents To Toronto the rale is
33 cents from Detroit and 35 cents
from Windsor. An cq nil Ily great discrimination is maiiu in the 'ale to
Montreal, il being 30 cents from Detroit and 01 cents from Windsor.
It will be seen that lt is timo the
Government was stepping in to protect the industries of Canada. The
railways receive subsidies, land
grants, anil almost everything else
they ask for and iu return fur this
the Government is supposed to have a
certain amount of control over the
rates ami the evidence bcin^ gathered
by the Commission should make tbem
exercise this ri^ht which has grown
rusty tbrongh lack of attention, The
Nelson wholesalers have a Btrong ease
to make out anil it is to be hoped that
jt will be   productive   of   great  good

News-Advertiser: The interests of
public decency demand that unless
there be a decided change in its conic ns. a New Denver paper called the
"Olaim," should at least be refused
circulation through ho malls. Anything more vile than the suggestive-
ness of paits of its latest issue it
would be difficult to discover, lt
affords an example of a debasing
misu.e of literary faculty of ono capable of m. eli better things, as many
of his w.itings prove. Nothing, however, pleases bim more in bis latest
nublications, than coarseiy to deride
the marriage relationship, whilst the
unclean neggestivemiss in which the
paper indulges is a disrgrace to Provincial journalism.
London Spectator: Our colonial
policy is simple; wo do not wish to
impose any scheme of federation, any
leady-made links of connection; we
wish only to see each colony prosper,
i'or in the /uitheranco of its prosper-
ity we see the surest promise of union. The wise father who seeks the
well-being of the child does not ask
him to remain always at home, or- to
follow the s: no profession, or to imitate bim slavishly io dress and conduct. He desires the child to make his
way in the world, and he helps him
to this end, knowing tbat thus far
closer ticB of affeotion will bo established Jian if he had coerced him into bis own ways. When Canadian
fede.ation was first propoed, it was
ovi'ientlv supposed that this new fiee-
dom would mean l.he loosening of the
old bonds. It meant really the opposite, for no bonds are so weak as the
ariiilcially imposed,and none so strong
as 1 lose naturally and spontaneously
created by by an independent people.
Hence, much as we desire to see tho
colonies sharing directly with ns the
consideration and execution of imperial measures, we', would wait patiently till of tlie'r own accord they
make the oiler. The bonds mnst be
self made, the HUc-ill.e undertaken of
their own free-Will. The vital internal, for us is the success of these youag
nations, for in them tho w.inle ideal
of British policy is on is trial. Complete locnl freedom, combined with a
readv loyalty to tbo empire���if this
ii.eal is realised It will bo thegrcitest
of our contributions to the political
history of the world.
