And catch the raw wind aff the bay,

Gie me the lion net, beasom, siccus.

Were it not for his perfervid  enthusiasm Canada would not now  be leaping the rich haivest, nor  would she be taking her place with  the great mineral producers of the  world.  Laws are made with an eye single  to the glory of greedy corporations;  lobbies are vocal with the clauior-  ings of special interests. The broker, tlie banker, lhe miner, and the  operator howl to the' .legislative  moon when all things do not fit  their fancies.  But the prospector, unprotected,  uncaring mayhap, is silent. He  cannot organize, he does not strike,  fie dies strange deaths in lone  lands.

Premier McBride supported the measure.  He pointed out that his government  had consistently refused to allow  the proposed act to pass during previous sessions; their objections being based, and rightly so, on the  fact that the smelting industry of  British'. Columbia' was not then in a  position which could be deemed ripe  for such legislation. Now it is  diffeiem, The development of the  country justifies the passage of  a measure, the enactment of which  at an earlier dale, would have been  a serious set-back to the principal  industry of the province.  The socialists and ,the liberals:  claim the now assured passage of  the ���measure as a great victory for  .Hawthornlhwaitc, who, to use their  own language, has 'forced' this bill  through the house.  Nothing could ,be wider from the  truth. Hawthornthwaile is not���  and never has been---in a position  to    'force'    anything   through    the  house.

A very successful and largely attended fancy dress carnival was  held ,011 the Discovery rink last  Saturday evening. The weathei  being fine there was a large attendance Irom Atlin and the creeks.  Gilmore's gramaphonc band, was iu  attendance, and Air. Robt. McKay  also very generously gave several  soul-stirring'selections on the pipes  Prizes were awarded as follows:  best fancy costume lady, Mrs. Davis  as 'Paper Napkin;' best dressed  gentleman, O. Rorke as "Courtier;1  best dressed girl, Miss Maud Iias-  lett as 'The Fencing Girl;' best  dressed boy, Robt. Roxborough as  'John Chinaman;' best sustained  character, W. Morrison as a 'Klondike heater;' and a consolation  prize'eonsisting of beer checks made  into a watch fob, which was presented to Policeman Hanna, who  earned the prize.   .  A race for boys resulted in a very  close and exciting finish, the first  prize going lo Harry Br'uce(.and the  second to Harry Costigan.  Lack of space forbids; otherwise  the costumes worn would be given  in detail. Considerable amusement  ��� was afforded by a series of mock  trials held on the ice, in which the  judge, the policeman, aud several of  our piominent citizens figured���the  last named as prisoners at the bar.  squad,' Ben N'icoll, iu his laughable Dutch comedian make-up made  fun lor everybody. There was a  laryc . number of spectators who  seemed 10 be enjoying themselves  about as much as the skaters.  There is some talk of a dance being given iu Atlin sometime during  this mouth, under the joint auspices  of lhe A. O. U. \V. and A. B. societies.    Tnc idea is a good one.  Canadian Pacific Railway Company.  AT ATLIN RINK.  The fancy dress carnival held ou  tlie Atlin rink last Wednesday evening was a very successful and brilliant affair. The Discovery people  came down in force and helped to  swell the number in attendance considerably. Bandmaster ' Holmes'  furnished sweet music a la grama-  phone, and Mr. Robt. McKay set  the blood tingling with his melodies  on the pipes.  The costumes were many, and  varied in their design, and made a  beautiful kaleidoscope effect as the  merry skaters flitted hither and  thither ou the ice; and the building  echoed and resounded with the peals  of joyous laughter, fun and frolic.  Indeed it was remarked by more  than one that such a turn-out would  have done credit to a large city. It  must have taken many a busy moment to design and make up some of  the really handsome costumes worn  by the ladies.  For the best dressed lady character the prize went lo ,\Iiss Dicki-  son, whose costume was that of an  Indian woman. Miss Kathleen  [laslett captured the young ladies  prize, as a 'Kate Greenaway girl,'  aud she certainly looked quaint and  dainty. Mr. Sam Johnston as 'The  Kentucky Colonel' was awarded  the gentlemen's prize, and Master  Marry Costigan as a typical cow-  puncher, was given the boy's prize,  jack Ci'.rtmel as 'Buster' was very  good and came in for the consolation  prize and���incidentally���a generous amount of clubbing from the  two very energetic and zealous officers of the law, Messrs.
