Internationa! Effect of the
Spanish-United States
Germany Waiting to tatto a Turn at
Brazil-What if Spiin
Should Lose.
An able article appears in the last
number  of  the   London   Spectator
which is very interesting at tne present time.   It is in part as follows:
It is not easy to pi-eceive what the
international effect of the Spanish-
American war will be, but two or
three points Rtand out with something
like clearness. At first, there is no
doubt but that the world will look on
quietly, partly rw*cru-*e it will h-* excessively Interested, and pfrtly because it is really uncertain to a verv
cirious degree whether the United
States are as powerful on sea as tbey
Are on land There is no doubt as
to their wealth or as to their possess*
i.m ot materials for ship building, or'
as to their iiN-ch.-inical skill ; but
there is d mht since their mercantile
marine declined as to their supply of
Tbey niav n ��t be able-on the continent to equip an overwhelming fleet,
t'lough they might build one ; and it
s�� a great manv occurences may be
prjssible which arc not possible n ��w
If.asmanv observers expect, Spain
at first wins In the ���urugs^s ami si
protracts the contest until the United
Stares can build a new fl -et, there
will lie on the Continent a fffeat dis-
pidtion to help Sp*��ln. Germany,
Austria and .Russia all sympathise
with the monarchial principle, -ill
dislike the great Republic, as by Its
v.*ry prosperity iuimicil t.�� ui.-u-
avhy, and all have grounds to-
qia :*el in w or less acute, and loti|f-
st ��� miii r
France, ;o>��, tii ��u;h not monarch*
ial, is very friendly to Spain, hankers
always fir an alliance with her in
the Mediterranean, and would great*
ly like to possess .Morocco with Spanish eon scent.
Moreover, the continent thirsts for
the nower of* entering South America;
The feeling is particularly strong
in France and Germany, ilermany
is Mug eaten up by her millions,
and the lands which Would hold them
are all closed to hold revisionary interests. Brazil would hold rive (ier-
maii populations, and is protected
from invasion by the long shadow
which the threat Republic casts all
down the Western continent. If that
shadow is lifted, that is, if it become*
clear that the United States is at sea
only an ordinary power, with which
another first-class power can contend
on equal terms, Spanish America
will be insecure.
South America is the great prize
of the future. A great many new
problems and sources of contention
and political objects of desire would
be at once presented if Spain were to
reveal at sea Such unexpected
strength that United States could
only maintain the Manroe doctrine
as regards countries to which she
had access by land.
Here the Writer goes on to say that
Spain will not win because United
States will be more artful and their
leaders more ingenious.
If then, the United States wins,
continues the writer, and clears the
seas, two dangerous situations will
arise.   There will be the Phillipines
to dispose ot. A great maritane
powerholding the Phillipines ought
to be mistress in the Far East. The
United States will be the owner Ol
the Islands/but she will not want to
keep them, thus giving hostages to
all the maritime empires; and Mir
can hardly Invest the inedjy of dark
races who* obey-and massacre the
parochial cores of the Phillipines
with independence and self govern
At the same time, the Untl
Stales will not like to transfer the
Phillipines to a non-Christain power
even if it should be ready to offer
the fourty millions sterling at which
Japan values the possession; and
failing herself ami Japan and the
Tagals, to whom is she to offer it?
There will be tierce bidding foi
the prize. We can hardly imagiin
unything which would so excite
Russia, lireat Britain, Germany and
France as the Idea thai a rival inari
time power would for all time be
seated on the 2.000 islands included
in ttie word PiullipiiHs
To avoid the war with the United
Stales would unseat the Spanish dy

Bght the war are fail at it will seat
the Bourbons firmly, In all hum >n
probability the dynasty, if defeated,
will be cast out as inefficient, ami
Spain, which is terribly distressed
by a had tenure and a poverty far
beyond anything natural to a noun
trv so rich, will mm through a social
as well as n political revolution.
We need not say how such an itgi-
tatiou in Spain would disquiet ail
Europe except Great Britain, how
amhiti ns as old as the llourhou-.
would wake in France, how the ex-
ample would disturbtlie peasantry of
Italy, how frantic the maritime j*ow-

Corbin Goes to Republic.

of securing a charter from   the Do

valley, and will build to the Republic Camp in the Culvllfe rmrvatloa

working for the Corbin bill at Ottawa
says the C. P. K. opposition   is  too

Now that Cuba has the eyes of the
world foamed upon it, much is being
said of tbe character of the country
and its wonderful resources in time of
peace. Of an irregular crescent shape
Cuba is much larger than popularly
supposed, for it is 7H0 miles long, hasan
average width of Hi) miles and an area
of 48,810 square miles, without including its adjacent  islands, which cover
over 2,000 square miles more. Although
mountainous in the interior, much of
the coast Hue is low nod flat, and difficult of approach on account of the
numerous reefs and small islands Notwithstanding this feature of the coast,
it is said that no other ialnud in the
world has so many excellent harbors
iu proportion to its size. Of these
Havana, Matanxas, Itahia Honda, Marie!. Nuevitas, Ni*te and Cardenas, on
the north side, and Santiago de Cuba
Trinidad.tiuantanamo and Cienfuegoes
on the south side, are the priucipai and
best known.
The Island of Cuba is divided into
six provinces, the most thickly populated of wnich is Havana, ami the least
is Puerto Principe The total popula
tiou before the present Insurrection
was over 1 .HOO.OO >. but it is estimated
that at least 500,000 have since perished
in battle, by disease and starvation
Although there is much cleared and
cultivated land, there are no less than
80^)00,000 seres of almost Impenetrable
forests, fully 111,000,000 of which have
never been' disturbed by man But
the soil which has been cultivated Is
marvellously rich and productive To
what extent this is so is shown by tin-
fact that, notwithstanding the discouragements to all industrial enterprises
through the misrule of Spain, the exports in MM were valued at over 89,-
QQQlOOO Spanish dollars
Notwithstanding the prevalence of
vellow fevj*r in the scacoast cities and
towns, the greater part of Cuba in said,
under normal conditions, to be a very
healthv place Although not altogether in the tropics, it MS all the characteristic*, of the torrid region It ha*
a wet and drv season, and except In
few spot* in the mountains not even
light frosts The prevailing tempera
tare is not unpleasantly not, for tin-
highest is rarely over 6* degrees, while
the average is 77 degrees.
The chief agricultural products are
sugar, coffee and tobacco, of which the
Cnited States takes the greater part.
In 165*3, for example, there were glM&j
tons of sugar produced.of which 71_\.M4
tons were exported, the United Stales
taking IW),fl4* tons Of ��7,OO0 bales
of tobacco exported, two third*, went to
the l'idled States, together with more
that half the 147,865,000 cigars made
Rut while tho exports footed up a total
of 80 nuo.ootl Spanish dollars, and the
import* r---.t*00,i����-. the taxation on the
people reached nearly 85,000,000Spanish
dollars Of this tremendous urden.
which is more than one-sixth the com
blued value of the imports and exports,
less than one-half came from the customs, and one-fourth of the whole is
entirely diverted from the Island to the
uses of the Spanish Crown.
It is supposed that the negro race
predominates in point of numbers in
Cuba, but this does not appear to be
the fact, for just before the rebellion
it was estimated that there were less
thau 5O0.OU0 of this race on the Island,
against over 1,000,000 whites and about
50,000 Chinese. Of the whites, the native born, or Cubans, are by far the
best educated, but neither the mass of
the Spanish residents nor the negroes
are overburdened with scholastic knowledge.
The lookout on the foretop of the
Nashville had seen the Spanish steamer
for some time, but he was not sure of
his vocabulary. There it was on the
weatherbow, the black smoke streaking the shot must ricochet,
the horizon!   Rut a steamer was not in
���'Aye, aye, sir," shouted the crew as
one man. It was noble patriotism without a suspicion of prize money.
The captain then*ordered the red fire
to be flashed on the tableau and the
chief photographer and sketch artists to
make the most of it Meanwhile he
consulted hurriedly with his officers as
to the proper course under the circumstances. The question was decided
finally by the A. P correspondent who
Kunted out chapter aud verse in C'arke-
ussell. "A snot from the cruiser's
bow gun ricocheted in front of the
enemv's cut water. The ship seeing
that flight was useless, hove to."
"Two what?" asked the captain with
some pertubation.   J
'-Oh," said the A. P. correspondent
with a supercilious smile, "that's sea
jargon for stopped."
"Well," said the captain, "our course
is clear.   It must be the bow gun and
Now who've we
got that can do the ricochet trick?"
Captain Marryatsken and Marryat was

"Shiver me timbers!" he muttered as
he turned over

The lookout pondered over the difficulty for halfran hour. Meanwhile the
strange steamer was growing^ smaller
on the horizon. Seeing that she would
escape if be continued to hesitate the
gallant tar sang out: "A steamer on
the weatherbow!"
Instantly the cry echoed fore and aft
and sll was excitement.   The Associated   Press   correspondent  ran   rapidly
through the remainingsix letters of the
naval   dictionary.    Then   he   looked j
through his glass.   Several officers also j-      ,   p.

The officers gazed through their binoculars. "Yes, said the lieutenant, "it

essentially Spanish."
"Hadn't we better inform the captain." asked the Annapolic cadet.
"Blow me tight," exclaimed the lieutenant, "but that's a good idea! Sonny,
vou'll be an admiral someday!"
Presently the captain came on deck.
He was perfectly cool iu spite of a slight
seasickness caused by the presence of
: o much water.
"Is it a schooner?" he asked.
"No captain," answered the ensign
dreamily. "The froth is at the stem,
not on top."
The captain recognized the importance of the occasion. The officers, sailors and marines format! an appropriate

"Well, sir,Oi hate a Dago like Oi hate

"Oi'm ready to foire," he said calmly,
but a steely glitter was in his eye.

The Idaho State Tribune is anxious
to see the fighting done by those
whom a war benefits the most It
treats tbe subject vigorously and
strikes tbe drill In the center as follows :
"Let the bankers, bond buyers and
stock speculators enlist and fight the
Spaniards These are tbe people
who will benefit by tbe war. The
wheat, pork and beef speculators will
make fortunes in the next few
months. The shylocks, bankers and
bond-buyers will be in their glory
should McKinleys bond proposition
carry. They will dictate the terms,
buy the bonds at a discount, collect
interest for twenty years snd then
get the principal at 100 cen*s on the
dollar. 1 he working people have no
reason to be more patriotic and will
ing to fight for their country than this
other class.
"Surely the workers will not be
benefitted, unless they figure that
allowing a greaser to fill their carcasses with lead is a benefit, or in
the event of escape without injury,
the prospect of paying principal and
interest on halt a billion of bonds to
these patriotic (?) money changers
who have not tbe courage to expose
their precious bodies to the perils of
"Tbe Tribune would like to see
John Pierpont Morgan, Lyman J
Gage and Mark Hanna shoulder their
guns and go to the front When
they do so the editor of this paper
will cheerfully lay down bisquill and
trv to make things as infernally hot
for the Spaniards as he proposes to do
with tbe 120 ex-members of the
Wardner militia, who carried ��zuiis to
reduce wages, but did not have the
courage of a chicken when it came to
confronting men who used the same
weapons as themselves.
Since the wsr broke out the
Canucks and Yanks are as thick as
white checks in a Kaslo poker game.
This is as it ought to be, and no one
is more plessed with the change in
sentiment than we are. It has struck
us so forcibly that we have sewed, a
Union Jack and Old Glory together,
-and hope that we will never have to
tear them apart, even after all the
bull-fighters are spitting cotton in
Hades, and the breeze plays with the
' Star and Stripes as it flutters over
A Kansas editor recently stated
that the American flag was a painted
rag. A mob chased him 25 miles
and he was glad to escape with his
life. This editor lacks good sense.
If a man does not like the way in
which his country does business he
should emigi ate, snd not be so rash
and ungeiitlemanly as to slight the
flag under which he earns his corn
and bacon.
THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON. H. ('.. MAY H. !*�����___
There is trouble in many an American home right now. Many a moth
ere heart aches as she thinks of her
boy who bss gone to the war. Many
a girl mourns for a sweetheart who is
with the other boys in blue at the
front There is nothing new in this
kind of sorrow, although we will
never cause it While we wonld
rather be a dead hero than a living
coward, all our female relations and
friends can rest assured that our
name will never sppear in the despatches as being deceased from an
overdose of bull fighters lead. We
may die of starvation in the newspaper business, be buried in a slide
or shot by an indignant populace, but
we will never die dressed up in blttd,
or red for that matter. Of that fact
we are certain. We have calmly
considered the question and arrived
at- the conclusion that it is more
healthy in New Denver than in Cuba
at the present stage of affairs. Of
course, if the bullfighters would
charge down Carpenter creek with
tbe intention of capturing New Denver, under the impression that it wain American territory we would get
out and give them all the hell we
had on hand. Outside of this bare
possibility there is no danger of us
making any vacant chairs in Spain.
We intend to still camp on the old
ground and print the same kind of a
paper that we did in ante bcllum
days.���The Ledge.
The silver market i* more anxious
than it has been for some time, and
in sympathy with other articles that
are rising In price it is also expected
to advance. More of the white metal
is being shipped to India rind China
than usual, and the demand,especial
ly in India, promises to become much
greater. Speculstors will endeavor
to push the price up, and we look tor
a very noticeable advance within the
next CO days.

The principal topic of the day
throughout Ihe Province and the Do*
minion of Canada .*< the building of a
mil say to the Yukon country. The
tlefeat of the railway bill by the Senate
has caused   the   < "overument  to  look
about for some other way to secure the
Yukon .trade and are considering an
allraM Canadian route, which thev can
-ret either from A-dicroft or Edmonton
1 he objection to the Edmonton route
I*   that  it   is too long and   the con
���traction of a railway in some placet-
would be too expensive    From Ash
croft,  a  short distance,  not over   TV'
mile* to Ijike Teslin. a irood railway
line  could   be   easily  built,    passing
through one of the finest mining and
agricultural countries in tne Dominion
of Canada,
Mr Be!! in his report to the Govern-
men' on his Investigation of. the routes
to Cariboo to build a railway, was de
cidedlv in favor of the Ashcroft routes
��is the distance was shorter and tin1
expense would  be considerably less
The onlv trouble was the first couple ol

would he considered- nothing The
couiii.v In well populated and Rue
ranches are distributed every few miles
along the road
I nrire mining companies are at pre"
ent operating; and aa soon si a rallwaj
is  built,  numerous other   companies,
(owning L*o0d irround, Will commence
'work on a large scale   The hindrance
to the mining Industry is the transportation of mining macluutiry, which
can onlv be taken In at present undei
great t-xpense.
Cmarti mining so far has not been
look<>d after 'as the shipping ��clht'J"
would net permit to work the grade of
quartz ledges eventually -*o be discovered. Through Cariboo right to
Lake Tealin a line of railway could
almost follow the gold belt, and it
would pass through the Kiskagash
district, which is known to be rich in
quartz. Samples from Kiskagash have
run as high as MOO per ton. The resources of the quartz industry will demand the building of a railway shortly
to these districts.
A railway line from Port Simpson is
being boosted by the coast cities
backed up by the Provincial Government. It is proposed to build from
Port Simpson, or some point near
there, through to Lake Teslin, a distance of 400 miles, and the Provincial
government to grant a subsidy of 14,000
per mile, for the construction of the
same. The railway fiom that poiut
will no doubt benefit a few, especially
those who secured all the land iu that
vicinity several years ago. But what
about the interior of the Province,
which has been crying for a railway for
years to tap the Cariboo country? If
there is money to be spent let it be
spent where the people will derive the
most benefit.
The Ashcroft route is the most desirable one to build a railway over, and
will receive its dues by the business
and well thinking men of the count ry.
I'lie coast merchants control the trade
of this part of the country, and what
will benefit the people of this district
and Cariboo, the merchants and many
others of thecoast will also receive their
bene lit
I'., show the interest taken in the
Ashcroft route, Mr Hosmer, superintendent of teleyraphs. after thoroughly
investigating all other ways to reach
the \ ukon with the telegraph line decided on Ashcroft as the shortest ami
easiest way to construct the telegraph
A railway from Ashcroft would benefit principally the whole of the interior

Sitnpson it would traverse an unin-
hahited. barren and almost unknown
wilderness It is hoped that good judgment will orevail in the selection of a
railway to the north as it means much
;ir the welfare of the Province.
If the railway is not constructed at
once, why not Wild a wagon road from
Juosnelie to I^tke Teslin? This will
settle all questions as to trade with
;ho Yukon country Cse the Stickine
and Skeena river* for getting un large

Many parties are now on their way
with wagons as well as pack trains
from the States and the lower country
in general. More than BOO men are or
have been in Ashcroft buying horses
and outfits already, and more than 1,001
horses have been sold.   All goods sold
here come from the wholesale houses
of Victoria or Vancouver Build a
wagon roail and build it at once The
Government that votes a large bonus
for a railroad will, it seems to us. make
a mistake and a serious one. We venture the bold assertion that a wagon
road that could be built for 1250,000, or
even less, from Qmsnelle through to

the Province, as the ranchers in the

Spokane, Wash.���Shipments of onyx
from the vast deposits in Stevens county,
this state, are now % being  made.   The
mines are the property of Charles Nor-
dyke and the stone is absolutely unique,
containing it is said, huge blocks of
every shade of green���a color which is
not even found in tbe celebrated onyx
quarries of .Mexico.
Mr. Nordyke, in speaking of the richness of his quarry, said that if necessary
Io could, uih>ii a f^w days notice, ship
1,000 ear loads of the material, and that
the extent of tbe ledge is so great that
it cannot be exhausted in a century.
Some of the material is valued by him at
$8 a cubic loot and other specimens, he
decisive, will bring from |3 to $5 for each
cubic toot. The ledge also eonteinsiarge
quantities of white and black marble, alabaster and state.
Mr. Nordyke obtained possession of
the claim two years ago, and tells an interesting story in connection with the
history of the discovery of tbe valuable
��� Two years ago," eaid Mr. Nordyke,
"I was a law partner, of Judge Wm. J.
(ialbraith and we had an office in the
little mininu town of Colville, Wash., in
the Huckleberry mountains. One day
we were sitting in the office and L. E.
Beach entered. Beach informed us that
his wife had deserted him and he was
desirous of obtaining a divorce. He
added that he had no money, but if we
would get him a decree be would give
us a half interest in an onyx claim he
had located in the mountain. We agreed
and soou after he got his divorce. Later
I purchased Judge Oalbraith's interest
in tbe claim and after organising a stock
company, started to develop the quarry
witb the present results. Since then
the former wife of Beach has married a
man who is a stockholder in the com-.
pany, yet Beach, the discoverer of this
wonderful ledge, is practically without
funds and occupies a loneiv cabin in the
hills." .

Tho London Sunday Special, of March
6th, in its financial column* tolls the following truths which will undoubtedly
interest our readers:
The traffic receipts on all the Mexican
railways continue to be most excellent,
and Mexican securities of all kinds are
wonderfully firm in price, though the
whole Stock Exchange ��eem�� inclined to
weakness, snd the United States on the
one hand, and Cuba on the other, mirht
fairly lead to the expectation of Mexico
being adversely affected. But the truth
is that Mexico is extraordinarily prospci*
ous, thanks principally (as nearly all
financial writers agree) to her silver
standard of currency. In spite of all
temptation from outside to adopt the
gold standard, Mexico sticks to her stiver,
and no people in the country "go stronger" for silver than the conservative
bankers, who on the first sign of wavering would at once start a ".silver Standard Defence Association.'' And silver is
repaying their loyalty tenfold. The
value of the peso, once over 4s., has
fallen to 23d., and under the protection
of this low rate of exchange Mexican industry is forging ahead. .Some yearn ago
there were only six cotton factories in
the whole country; to-day there are 250
and more building. Staple sriicles,*u.ch
as paper, glass, umbrellas. <*hirU*T beer,
and Iiijuors, which used to be imported
from Europe, are now manufactured in
Mexico by the latest ami most improved
machinery and appliances. All descriptions of mining machinery are manufacture in the State of Chi'ahnaha, and
agriculture is flourishing, for the cultivators obtain eleven peso* for every sovereign', worth of exports, instead' of Ave
pesos as formerly, while within the country the purchasing power of the peso
remains unaltered. And there is still
plenty of room for expansion in Mexico,
since only about 5 per cent, of her 10,'
000,000 of square Kilometres is as yet
under cultivation.
It is no inconsiderable achievement
for a young Canadian to come to Ottawa
at the age of 25 years, and in less than
two years develop among1 his own people the popular strength which Is the
British Columbia Governments onlv
reason for calling* W. W. B Mclnnes to
its help.
Because he has tried to do right At
Ottawa, regardless of what hi* leaders
were doing, Mr. Mclnnes has become
strong with the people of British Columbia, and because he is strong with the
people of British Columbia, the Turner
Government wants him a*- an ally.
On the record of its leaders at Victoria-, the Turner Government is a
pretty rank political organization, ami
on the record of the British Columbia
Liberals at Ottawa, Mr Mclnnes excepted, the Liberal party of British
Columbia is decidedly no better Therefore Mr. Mclnnes will not be to blame
if he decides that he has a go,H\ chance
to serve the province bv Identifying

The gread cotton thread trust,
known as the Coates combination, is
reaching out from Great Britain for
tin* control ot the United Suites and
Canadian markets. The representatives of the several interested concerns refuse to discuss all rumors as
to negotiations, but it is persistently
announced that the scheme is progressing rapidly. The plan seems
to involve the amalgamation td all
American concerns, and the Coates
concern takes large stock, which
means that the entire market in
Great Britain, the United States and
Canada will be under one control. It
is said that the works at Willtmatic,
Conn., will be the m-tnufacturing
headquarters of the concern, and
that all other factories in the States,
with the exception of those which
make "six-cord thread," will be
practically abandoned. A similar

The London Sunday Special, of March
6th, in its financial columns tells the following truths which will undoubtedly
interest our readers:
The traffic receipts on all the Mexican
railways continue to be most excellent,
and Mexican securities of all kinds are
wonderfully  firm   in price, though the
whole Stock Exchange seems boused t��>
weakness, and the I nited States on the
one hand, and Cuba on the other, mttht
fairlv lead to the expectation of Mexico
being adversely affected.   But the truth
is that Mexico'is extraordinarily pro#f*-i-
ous,   thanks  principally    as nearly all
financial writers agree,  to  her   silver
standard of  currency.   In spite of all
temptation   from outside to  adopt the
gold standard, Mexieosticks tohersilver,
and no people in the country "��0 Stronger"  for   silver   than   the   conservative
hankers, who on the first sign of waver
ing would at once start a "Silver Standard Defence Association.''    And silver i*
repaying   their   loyalty   tenfold.     The
value  of  the   peso, once over 4s., has
fallen to -3d., and  under the protection
of this low rate of exchange Mexican industry is forging ahead.   Some years ago
there were only six cotton  factories in
the whole country ; to-day there are NO
and more building.    Staple articles.sucli
as paper. k*lass,  umbrella1*,   shirts bear.
and liquors, which  used  to l*e Imported
from Europe, are now manufactured in
Mexico by the latest and most Improved
machinery and appliance*.    All descriptions of mining  machinery are manufacture in the State of Chiahuaha. and
agriculture is flourishing, for the cultivators obtain eleven |>esos for every sovereign's worth Of exports, instead of live
pesos aa formerly, while within the country the   purchasing power of the   -h-so
remains unaltered.   And   there  is still
plenty of room for expansion in Mexico,

The great!  cotton   thread   trust,
known as the Coatee combination, is
reaching out from Great Britain for
the control oi the United States and
Canadian markets.   The representatives of the several interested concerns refuse to discuss all rumors as
to negotiations, but it is persistently
announced that the scheme is progressing   rapidly.   The plan stems
to involve the amalgamation   of all
American concerns, and the Coates
concern  takes  large  stock,  which
means that the entire   market   in
(treat Britain, the United States ami
Canada will be under one control. It
is said that the works at Willtmatic,
Conn.,  will   be the mtnufacturing
headquarters of the  concern,  and
that all other factories in the States,
with the exception of  those  which
make   "six-cord thread,"   will    be
practically  abandoned.    A similar
concentration   may  be   effected   in

�� '     1. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B.C., MAY 14, 1*6.
Our Munificient Gooernment
British Columbia's resources are in
the control of gentlemen who know
how to distribute with the glad hand.
Sandon's City Council asked the
local legislature lor $000 to clear the
creek outside the city limits. An
answer was received recently through
OJti. Dennis, Assistant Commissioner, of Lands and Works, stating that
the government had no money on
hand and would not have any until
July. In other words, they would
not do anything for Sandon before
the elections. The appropriation
wtych was made early in the session
has all been spent. We understand
that Three Forks got some $50 of it.
Sandon people were promised about
all they cared to ask, nut up to date
these promises have failed to materialise. New Westminster, Nanaimo,
and other uncertain constituencies
are getting all kinds; of government
money. Some of the one-street towns
in solid divisions do not have to ask
f >r appi opriations. The progr essive
and active district of Slocan, which
pays more taxes in proportion to
population than any other country
on earth, Cuba, Spain and Armenia pot excepted, gets practically
Dan M:ittn and Bill Mackenzie get
3UKX),<M) for building a lath track
somewhere between hell and B >b-
caygeon. The same gang get another million or two for building the
V. V. & E. In all, the government
is giving away some live million
dollars for building railroads which
it should build and operate tor the
people ; and in most cases the roads
could be built for less than the bonns
anounts to. How this money is divided it is hard to say. There is a
large rake-off somewhere.
Our legislators could not find $110)
to improve Carpenter creek. Sandon
may be flooded out, drowned or
washed to kingdom come for ill they
care; or the citizens may do the
government's work and cash up for
it themselves -just as they like.
All this may not be edifying but it
is instructive. Our council is at
fault. They should change their
tactics. Let* them ask lor ^100,000.
not a paltry 3uU). By the time the
different pluggers^and cappers in
Victoria got their' rake-off there
would probably lie aliout enough
left to lix the creek.
The members of the local legislature are the gentlemen who are
asking for re election.

A letter received yesterday from
E. C. Bissell, who was supposed to
have been one of the victims of the
snowslide disaster on the Skagway
trail, says:
"I found on arrival at Victoria
Sundav that I had been killed in the
snowslide at Chilcoot pass, but I
flatter myself that mv bump of
caution is "too well developed to get
caught in a snowslide."
The letter is dated from Tacoma,
where Mr. Bissell intends to locate
lor the present. This final assurance that E. C. is still in the land of
the living will come as s considerable relief to his many friends in
Blood is Thicker than Water.
Says the Montreal Witness : "British people the world over who remember how the American sailors of
the United States fleet in the harbor
of Apia, Samoa, drifting to their own
destruction before the hurricane,
cheered the British sailors, who, inch
by inch, worked the great British
warship to safety in the open sea in
the face of the gale; who remenilw-r
how the American ahipH at the capture of Taku forts, at the mouth of
the lViho, could not refrain from
Joining the British in their fight from
pure brotherly feeling j who remember how, after the bombardment of
Alexandria, the American men-of-
war there sailed round the British
Victors and cheered them, will heartily rejoice over tbe success of their
American cousins."
Mackenzie & Mann will receive
$4,000 a mile from the Provincial
government for building the 3tick.een
Teslin railway. Hut the road will
not be completed before the end of
the summer of 181)9. The only redeeming feature of this iniquitous
grant is that a provision has been
made by which the Province shall
receive 4 per cent, of the gross receipts of the railway. It will be interesting to note what success the
government will have in collecting
this per ccntage. If no better re
Belts are obtained than so far have
been achieved in the arrangement
that the Province has for a share of
the gross receipts of the Nakusp snd
Slocan and the Shuswap & Okan*
agan railways, it will have been a
waste of time to make such a provision.���Miner.

According to the statements of
leading railway men, and they
should be able to judge, the war has
hot, as yet at all events, proved the
bonanza for Canadian trade which in
tome quarters was looked forward
to. The general trade is good in
Canada, but this is not due in any
way to the war. Mr. ii. M. bV��
worth, general freight manager ot
the Canadian Pacific, savs : "The
Canadian Pacific, and one might say
all the Canadian roads, of course, are
doing a verv large business at present. That is because this has been a
magnificent spring In Canada. If
not one gun had been fired in all
Cuba this would have been a busy
season for Canadian railways. But
if these guns had been fired up along
the Northern Atlantic test ma rd it
might have male litem still busier."
The internal    ditttnttont   which
handicap the Spanish government at
this crisis are in marked contrast to
the unanimity with which nil politic-
al parties iu the United States eon.
grass unite to vote millions for the
prosecution of the war. The Span
