I am bound to  say that tho commission has not so far been  n *i cry great success. I untieipate w hat may  be said, that is because theie is ono ques-  tion, the Al.iskan boundarv, which has  proved a stumbling block>m 0111 way. Hut  many say we have no reason to be ashamed  of our record in that respect. If the commission had dealt w ith matters which were  before us iu the manner w hich other compulsions have dealt with similar questions,  the Aluskuu bouudari question would lime  been sottled, but Jt would have been settled  to our detriment aud not to our benefit.  Such has beon our experience iu the past.  Wo lime therefore stood by our rights, and  it is because we havo stood by our rights  that wo have not obtained tho success which  wo might havo expected. Hut, gentlemen,  there is no one, I am sure, in the audience  ���w ho w ould regret, or w ould express auj regret upon it.

A gentleman visiting in the north  writes the Vancouver , News-Adver-  liscr   as   follows:    "It   strikes me  that   British   Columbia   will   never  know what it has lost hy its present  inefficient-steamboat service.    I  regret to say it, but it is  true nevertheless,'   that   the   poorest   of the  United States boats are better than  the best  Canadian   boats.     Consequently all persons going south pre  fer-to take the American boats and  th'e passengers land iu Seattle, and  at the first .place they land they buy  their goods.     Duty charges  cut a  very small figure when a man finds  what   he   wants.    Now   that' this  northern traffic is assured   for years  to come, we should have two boats  capable of making 17   or   18   knots  an hour,  and  fitted out first class  in every respect.   These boats would  take all thetradethey could cany."  The foregoing is a conoise and clear  .statement of the facts and we heartily commend it to the  attention   of  the Vancouver and Victoria boards  of trade.  ment,, in the fullness of its heart,  would allow the munificent- sum of  $60 per month for the salary of a  teacher. No qualified teacher can  be secured at such a salary and as  a consequence, the school has been  closed.' The methods of the government in dealing with affairs iu  this district is exasperating in lhe  extreme.'  W. A. Carlyle, superintendent of  'the Le Roi mines at Rossland, and  ex-provincial mineralogist, has been  offered the posision of superintendent of the Rio Pinto minesv in  Spain at a salary of 525,000a year.  It is said that he has accepted, and  will shortly leave for Spain. r His  present salary is $10,000.  It is hinted that W.

The transfer was not made  before the purchasers made a careful investigation of surface indications.    During the winter more .'extensive investigation will be made  . and if results justify it a very large  number  of stamps  will  be put in  operation   next  year.      This is of  first  importance  to the   people  of  ' this district,   for if this ore can be  worked profitably then  the future  of Atlin  as   a   very  large   mining  camp  is   firmly   established.      We  have the assurance of a number of  gentlemen,   eminently qualified   to  speak, that there are a number, of  such propositions within a short distance of Atlin and if the one under  consideration proves a success then  extensive  plants   will  be  put into  operation during the next  two or  'three vears.  Why should there' be any difficulty about getting mails into Atlin?  There is no trouble about sending  iu a bale cf hay or cooking-stove.  But the post office department finds  it difficult to carry letters in with  regularity.���Victoria Colonist.  We would inform the Colonist  that thec trouble lies in the transporting of the mails from Victoria  and Vancouver to Skaguay. So far  as we can learn the mails from the  latter place to Atlin have been  handled with fair dispatch.

The'Transvaal situation's briefly  this: The Boers offer to concede  the franchise insisted upon .b3' Sir  Alfred Milner, /but couple it with  the condition that Britian shall abandon all pretensions to exercise suzerain powers over the Republic.  There is not the least prospect that  the British Government will consent  to this tactily or otherwise, and the  whole question of peace or _ war,  therefore, depends on whether the,  Boers will recede from pressing this  condition. ;      '.    .,- .'    -  The Hon. J. Israel Tarte, Minister  of public works of Canada, who  lately underwent a serious operation in Paris, for which he had  specially voyaged to Europe, says  the London, Eng., Star of Sept 2, is  unfortunately not pulling round as  satisfactorily as was expected. Of  late years Mr. Tarte-took a very active part in the hard work of Canadian politics and the excitement  and worry have apparently shaken  his general health in a serious waj*.  Crow's Nest Pass coal is being  delivered to consumers in Rossland  at $6.25 per ton.  The news from Atlin printed in  our Vancouver telegrams this morning is highly interesting. It has  been expected for some time that  the district would prove to be specially valuable for its quartz, and  the latest news seems to bear this  out. Between its hydraulic and  lode mines, Atlin will next year attract the attention of capitalists to  an unusual degree. Railway construction into the district will be assured, if the present prospects are  realzied.���Victoria Colonist.  Bennett Lake and Klondyke Navigation Co., U  Tlie li. L.' & K. N.

They took time to  shake hands \\ ith their friends iu this city.  The Topeka must huve landed on the  wrong "bank," for L. Beid is still with the  Merchants of Halifax. As to Ed. Russell, we  think that must mean "Our Jim." - A good  many citizens were doubtful as to the final  outcome of the big quartz deal that happily  saw consummation last Mouduy, owing to, company  Russell's departure. But "Jim" is u government man, uud when governments ure tottering, hydraulic, placer and quartz can ull  go to Halifax, as far as he is concerned. Tho  State first, last and all the time.

IS.���After escaping don-  tructiou in Monday's storm, Sir Thomas Lip-  ton's challenging yacht, the Shamrock, met  with un acoident to-day that would surely  have lost her the race had she been aoutesiug  with tho Columbia for the possession of tho  America's cup. Her steel gaff broke ut a  point about ten feet from the gawu, and if  she has not another gaff ready of the name  leugth, it will be at lease a week before she  can sail again with the same mainsails she  set to-day. The present gaff and boom are  the ones she is to race with in October, and  the mainsail will not. fit tho spars sho discarded on Tuesday.  The Co ist papers arabmy counting members' noses these days und figure out the government in the majority or minority, according to their respective politicul views. Considering the defections of Joseph Martin und 1>.  W. Higgins and the reported desertion of  Hon. Hclgesen and R. Macpherson, the government is numerically weak at best; but  its great weakness lies in its lack of ability.  Outside of Mr. Cotton, there is not ono man  ou the government side who can put up a  strong fight; all the fighters are now on the  other side. The government was weak in  numbers when it began, but Joseph Martin  is a host in himself when there is any fighting  to be done. If the government lives until the  legislature is called, it will bo only to meet  its death at the hands of an opposition  tint  Sir Motteuzie Bow ell'was at Culgary ou  Sept. 10, on his way to Edmonton.

There has been for some time past an agitation for a railway connecting the White Seu  with St. Petersburg, Central Russia, the Hal-  tie, und the Black Sea, greatly wanted, chiefly  on commercial grounds. The Sea route between Europe and Northern Siberia, it has  been found, cannot be relied ou, so much depending ou tho state of the weather und the  nature of the season. Three routes were  propoued, uud the route adopted, and now in  course of execution, is a line from Vologda  to Arc-hang. It is ubout 1,000 miles in leugth,  uitd*wJll he a narrow gauge. The work is being carried out by the Moscow, Juroslav and  Vologda .Railway Company, which in future  will be known as the Moscow, Juroslav and  Archangel Railway Company. .The capital  to be ultimately raised is 19,000,000 roubles  (&.1,000,000), the debentures being guaranteed  by the stute. The company also receives an  annual subsidy for tw*elve years, commencing at 1.000,000 roubles und declining gradually to 800,000 roubles. The lino is to bo completed by January next, and from January,  1907, the Russian government has the right  to acquire the whole of the system of the  company. This railwuy line will pluee Archangel iu direct communication with Moscow  and indirectly with St. Petersburg.  IN   BOESLAND.  London Press Opinions on the Situation.  London, Sept. 18. -The reply of the Trasn-  vuul to Mr.'Chamberlain's latest note is said  to co\cr nine pages. It is eminently 'of the  "negative and inconclusive"' character  which Mr. Chamberlain declared would compel the consideration of the situation  afresh. It practically repudiates suzerainty, reverts to tlie seven-year franchise and  declines'to give equality to the Dutch and  English language m the Yolksraad. In short,  it is politely negutive and defiant. The. full  text may not be avniluble'for some time, but  it will not change the aspect of nfrairs.  It is supposed that the next move ou the  part of the Trans\aol is an appeal to the  powers.  The Morning Post says: "The Boers mean  to fight; that is the plain English of it."  The Stundard:' "The Transvaal note is unsatisfactory. * It might be going too far  to say that, the last hope of peace has  vanished, but it is idle-to deny that the Transvaal rulers have brought their country very  close to the brink of disaster which the British government has done its best to uvert."   .  The Daily Mail: "President Krugcr's defiance has terminated a long period of unrest and uncertainty in South Africa, for,  whatever may be the issue of the present  situation, one thing is certain, that duulism  in South Africa will end forever."  The Daily Chronicle:' "President Kruger  is a shifty uud iinprueticu'Kpoliticiau. fit only  to be spoken to across a line of bayonets."  THE'  Canadian Bank...  ...of Commerce.  BROWNLEE & LOWRY  J.
