Large  Consignment  of  Window Glass J-y-jt Received.  *���  ' *��� *���>>  Men  and  nioney   work   a   complete  metamorphosis.     The    irregular   and  rocky hill  covered  with scrubby trees  and   presenting   a formidable front to  those  desirous  of  shaping  it to   meet  their requirements is now  a  series  of  uniform   benches,   ornamented   oy  retaining   walls  and   dotted  with buildings.   If any one who visited Smelter  hill  two  months   ago would return today,  he   would   be  astonished  at the  great   work    carried   out   under   the  vigorous superintendence of Paul John-  son.    Pew  people  appreciate   the   extent of the  operations  that are;being-  carried oti to establish the biggest -reduction ���'��� works  in  the  province in the  city of Greenwood.    During  the  past  month over $4,500 was paid out  by the  British ' Columbia     Copper   company,  limited, in wages to   men   working   on  the   smelter site.    Judging. from  appearances ' they ��� gave good  value for  the money.    A  long  and solid retaining wall for blast furnaces, blow house  and engine house has  been  built;: the  foundation   for sample  mill  has been  laid ^nd  the excavation for the upper  ore bins has been started.   The lumber  is   being  hauled  to   the  site for store  houses, boiler  house,  blow house and  carpenter shops.    Nearer the city oh a  beautiful bench, overlooking Boundary  creek, the laboratory, assay, office  arid  superintendent's    residence    will    be  erected.  The workis not being rushed as. Mr.  Johnson has fixed a time for its completion. Early next spring he will  have a 300-ton furnace ready and will  build other furnaces as rapidly-as the  increase output of ore warrants.  A glance at the business done by. a  smelter will convince- any one that-  directly and indirectly it will be the  most important factor in making  Greenwood a great business city. Its  close relation with mining operations  will centralize business here. Today  the construction of the smelter adds  to the pay roll of the city nearly $5,000  a month. The greater portion of this  is spent in the city and consequently  the volume of the business is increased  to that extent. But when the smelter  is running full blast, the business it  will create will be very large indeed.  With a 300-ton furnace the pay roll will  amount to between  $7,000 and 558,000 a  month.    Between   520,000 and   $25,000  will   be   paid   to tlie railway for trans-'  portatign.    The ore treated   will represent  at least *S125,000 a month.    Now  all  this  money   will   be interchanged  right in Greenwood through the Greenwood   banks.    Every   business   transaction  directly   benefits'the city.    As  the country becomes developed, as  the  smelter  is  enlarged   and    brings  the  business of  the'mines in the surrounding camps in the city, it will be impossible to  estimate  the  advantage   the  smelter wili  be  to   the city.    All that  was necessary to en surefor Green wood  the   leading   place   in   the   Boundary  Creek   district   and   a    high   position  among the cities of the Dominion, was -  an   undert iking   like   the  Greenwood  smelter.    Paul Johnson was not "talking through  his  hat"  when  he said:  "I want to tell you that the center of .  this   great   mining  district   is ; Green-   -  wood.    All ores will naturally  gravitate here.    You have here a place  that  will beat Butte."  A BIG LUMBER COMPANY.  Kootenay and Boundary Creek Mills Are Amal-  ' gamated.  ; After months of negotiating", a ,big  lumber company has been floated to  acquire several Kootenay and Boundary Creek saw mills. The. capitalization of the company is 55500,000 and the  head ��� office will Be located : in Greenwood. The incorporators are A. Fisher  and Louis Blue,/ who own mills at  Greenwood and Rossland, and Messrs.  Genelle and Poupore, the well known  Kootenay lumbermen, whose mills are  located at Nakusp and Robson. The  new .company will operate' mills at  Nakusp; Robson, Greenwood, Phoenix,  Eholt, Rock creek and LongLake. Mr. ���  Poupore is general manager, while Mr.  Fisher will manage the mills in the  Boundary Creek district;  Notice.

Mr. Bengough h.is been described as the most versatile man in  Canada���-cartoonist, humorous lecturer,  opera singer, reciter, poet, mimic.  The. entertainment is given under the  auspices'of the volunteer fire department.  The by-laws sanctioning the borrowing of $15,000 for further improvements  were passed by the ratepayers on Mon--  day. Immediately afterward and offer  of 101 was made for the debentures  through the Bank of Montreal and accepted by the council. The purchaser  is W. L. Hogg, the well known Montreal financial man.  ��� Mrs. Clifford G. Buck has arrived in  the city to join her husband who is resident manager of the War Eagle company. Their infant son has been  rather ill for some time, but is how re-,  covering. Mr. and Mrs Buck will re-  side at the War Eagle as soon as the  residence which is being erected will  be completed. Mr. - F. P. Buck, the  president of the War Eagle company  returned east on Sunday-last.'  P. Lynch, a tool sharpener about 40  years of age, who has been in the district for about a year, died at the  Phoenix hotel on Thursday the 26th  ult. of hen'rt failure. It is not known  where he originally came from, nor  could anything be ascertained about  his relatives. He was buried iu Given-  wood cemetery on Saturday, tlie Phoenix miners' union having charge of  the funeral. A large number of ihe  members of Phoenix and Greenwood  branches of tlie Western Federation of  Miners followed the remains to tlie  grave.  A horse foolish enough to venture on  the railway track almost succeeded in  causing a serious accident at the  Fisherman creek trestle last wi-ek.  The engine struck the horse at the  bridge. He fell on the track in front  and was pushed forward on the bridge.  The wheels of the engine then passed  over him before the train could be  stopped. It was with some difficulty  that the animal was taken from underneath the wheels, but the men on  board at last succeeded in spreading  the timbers and allowing him to drop  through the trestle.  Andrew W. Leonard, aged 45 years,  and a native of Pennslyvania, died  Saturday last of pneumonia. The deceased had been engineer at the Old  Ironsides for the past year. He had  also held a similar position in the Golden Crowii and Winnipeg before coming  to the Ironsides. He has a brother  living in Richmond, Virgina, who has  been notified of the death by Mr. Holt.  The funeral took place on Monday  from the undertaking parlors of T. M..  Gulley & Co., the remains being interred in the Greenwood cemetery. Rev.  B.

Carter-Cotton, chief commissioner of lands and works, visited  Greenwood on Saturday last. He was  accompanied by A. W. Ross, of Columbia. . Mr. Cottton is making- a tour  of the province and was in the Cariboo  country before coming- here. His visit  was a brief one, but he lost no time in  investigating those matters which particularly related to his department and  other matters in which the government  are interested. Immediately upon his  arrival he visited the new school house  in company of Mayor Hardy. Then  the council of the Board of Trade was  met in the Greenwood club rooms and  several public works discussed.  Mr. Cotton's attention was drawn to  the construction of the road from  Greenwood to Central camp. The  government promised $1,500 if the.citizens would contribute a like amount.  There are some doubts as to whether  the road can ue completed before^winter and the council suggested that the  government contribute $1 for SI up to  "1,500. Mr. Cotton readily acquiesced  iii this plan, believing it wiser to defer  the expenditure of: the balance of the  money untii next spring rather, than  prosecute road building in- the depth of  winter.  The question of securing a supreme  and county court registry in Greenwood wasfdiscussed not only with the  Board of Trade, but also with, the barristers of the city. The minister  promised to take up the matter with  the attorney-general. It was an old  saying, he; said laughingly, "that the  vultures were to be found near the  carcass," and the preponderance of  lawyers,in Greenwood was strong evidence that this city is the legal center  of the Boundary Creek country.      y  Hon. Mr. Cotton appeared to take a  keen interest in the unsatisfactory condition of. school affairs in the city. It  was pointed out that no public school  had been opened since June ; that the  salaries fixed by the department was  $60 for principal, and $50 for assistant;  that' it was impossible to secure competent teachers for these amounts,  owing- to the high cost of living. The  council suggested that as several  months' salaries had not been paid,  that the whole sum for the year be  granted teachers for the remaining  months. Mr. Cotton thought this plan  of overcoming the difficulty an excellent one and promised to take the matter up with the superintendent of education immediately upon his return to  the capital. He also promised to advise the appointment of a janitor for  the school building.  The location of the bridge at the  West Fork and the continuance of the  road1 in that section .was discussed.  Apparently there is great dissatisfaction among the prospectors at the site  chosen for the bridge by F. C. Gamble,  the government engineer. Those who  are in a position to know say that the  bridge is being placed one  mile out of  This Time  the Anadonda  Company Is After  Him. ���������..-.  A Butte dispatch says: The Anaconda Mining company has commenced  snit against F. Augustus Heinze to re-  coyer a seven-twelfths interest'in all,  the ores extracted from the Parnell  lode claim arid to compel the defendant  to permit the ^company^ to enter into  joint possessisn and occupancy of the  claim., The plaintiff'claims'that on  July 31,-1899, it became the owner of a  one-half interest in the property, and  on September 1,1899, became the owner  and entitled to the immediate possession of an additional one-twelfth interest. The company claims that upon  the acquisition of this interest it gave  notice to Mr. Heinze that it was the  owner of a seven-twelfths interest and  demanded that he deliver to the plaint-  tiff on the dump its proportionate share  of all the ores extracted since the acquisition of an undivided interest, and  offered at the same time to pay the defendant the actual cost of mining such  proportionate share, but the defendant  refused to deliver. The Anaconda company, now asks that the .defendant be  perpetually enjoined from refusing the  plaintiff the right to jointly occupy and  possess the premises and the ore bodies  and from in any manner interfering  with plaintiff extracting jointly with  him any ores', or.minerals' A temporary restraining order during the pend-  encvof the action is asked for.

Ex-Governor Mackintosh appears to  have gotten himself very thoroughly  disliked by mining people generally by  the extraordinary course he took in  reference to the Sunset property in the  Similkameen country. He'had an option on a majority interest at one time  and the money was up to pay for''it,  the amount being $40,000, but for some  reason the deal did not go through.  Later on he,took the trouble to write a  letter to some newspaper giving the  property a bad name. As a matter of  fact the Sunset has been reported on  favorably by some very competent  mining experts and it is by no means  certain that ex-Governor Mackintosh  was justified-in his deprecatory mention of it. v  Smith  Curtis,  of Rossland,   who is  interested in the Sunset, has written a  very severe letter in  which he handles  Mackintosh without gloves.    It is  one  I of  the  sharpest pieces of writing we  have seen in a long "time and won  very  general   applause.    The trouble  with  Mackintosh  is  that  he has by certain  fortuitous    and    accidental    circumstances  come  under the delusion that  he is a much more important person in  the   mining  world   than   he  really is.  The people of Rossland have naturally  felt very  kindly towards him because  he influenced the British America Corporation to invest a great deal of money  there.    It is quite probable the  people  of Rossland have more cause for gratitude than the British America corporation; at least one would   think so from  the  fact that  the gallant ex-governor  found  it convenient to sever his connection with that company.  As to the ethics involved in the  course of Mackintosh in an attempt to  injure the name ot the Sunset property there is but one view among mining- men���it was uncalled for and un-  quite in   line with that species  of  y^ investment m j^  ff\&.

Mr.  Gamble persists in maintaining that  the bridge is in the proper location.  However, since hearing the opinion of  Mr. Wood; Mr. Kerr, Mr. Galloway  and others acquainted with the West  Fork country, he would again take up  the matter with Mr. Gamble.  In replying to a vote of thanks proposed to him, Mr. Cotton said that the  government believed Boundary Creek  to be the greatest mining district in the  province and everything possible would  be done to encourage its development;  Roads would be constructed where  their usefulness would not be speedily  destroyed by the construction of a railway. . He would always be pleased to  hear from the Greenwood Board of  Trade and would give all their requests  the most careful consideration. Mr.  Cotton, Mr. A. W. Ross and Mr. J. B.  McArthur were dined by a party of  Greenwood gentlemen at the Clarendon  Saturday evening. The chief commissioner returned to Columbia Sunday  morning.  Hon. Mr. Cotton said that he was in  the district as chief commissioner and  not as a politician and consequently  did not care to talk politics.

Harukr :..Manager.  SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER, 4,1899.  A DAILY PAPER.  The Greenwood Times Printing and  Publishing company, limited, has been  organized with a fully paid-up capital  of 325,000 for the purpose of publishing a daily paper in Greenwood. The  new company acquires the business  and plant of the Boundary Creek Printing and Publishing company and will  carry on the business heretofore conducted by the latter company. Duncan  Ross retainshis interest and will, as  in the past, act as managing editor.  The new daily will appear about December 1st. The necessary plant has  been purchased in Toronto and should  arrive here by that date. Arrangements have been made to secure the  full Associated Press service. It is  the intention of the company to.publish a first-class daily newspaper. The  publication of a live daily in a small  city involves the expenditure of a large  amount of money. It means a cash  outlay of ���"���nearly'. $2,000 a month. Hb  success not only depends upon the  rapid growth of the city, but also on  the encouragement and patronage, received from the citizens. A daily  paper no matter how feebly conducted  cannot but benefit a city. The very  fact that the publication of a daily  paper is considered possible is in itself  a good advertisement. With plenty of  subscribers and advertisers the new  daily will give a fair return to those  who have ventured their money in the  undertaking. While a plant is being  purchased for the, daily paper, the job  printing plant is also being increased.  An engine has been purchased to run  the presses. This will enable the office  to handle more job work in less time.  This department will be under the  direct supervision of W. J. Harber,  which is sufficient guarantee that the  highest standard of excellence will be  maintained.  spent in building a road to some promising mining property will benefit  the province more than ten thousand  spent in building cross roads to some  political friend's farms on the coast.  Mr. Cotton has pledged himself and  the government to a policy that will  encourage the development of the  mineral resources of this district. He  has learned something about the requirements and-has sufficient influence  with the government to carry anything  he suggests into effect.

Immediate and concerted action in  meeting conditions  is of far greater  importance in the upbuilding of a mining town than the exploitation of any  municipal theory however sound it may  be.   It is very well to roll the sweet  morsel of municipal ownership  under  the tongue  but while  this delectable  movement is going on,  the municipal  maw is  hungering for the substance.  No one can gainsay the fact that the  city should own its own eleetric light  plant but while the people are theorizing other cities are taking a step forward in the race for supremacy. ���  It is  not so important in a new country that  all the tenets of  municipal  economics  should be observed  as  it  is,  tha t all  competitors should be distanced. There  is the very greatest necessity for. the  immediate installation  of an  electric  light system in Greenwood.    It is more  expedient to allow some one to act than  spend days in theorizing.   The Times  is   a   strong   believer    in    municipal  owners but would rather sacrifice any  theory than have an important  undertaking  delayed.     A   new   town cannot   afford    to   cavil   about    details.  It should encourage  the man who is  ready to invest his money  in the city,  who is  willing to  give   the city that  which will place it on a similar footing  o   other   cities.       Greenwood   should  have had an electric light system long  ago.   The only possible  way one  can  be   secured in   the near future  is  by  allowing  thoue who have the money to  invest it.    When  the  finances of the  city are considered, when the municipal  ���credit must be heavily pledged for improvements    that    are    an    absolute  necessity, the offer to install  an  electric light system within 60 days  should  be accepted at once.

Mr. Cotton's words in reference to Boundary Creek were encourg-  ing enough but Mr. Cotton is a  politician and a politician's words are  g-enerally encouraging. The g-overnment can make no mistake by carrying  Mr. Cotton's words into effect. To do  so it will be necessary to change the  policy of the past. The policy has  been to dilate upon the glorious possibilities of the mineral sections of the  province and pamper the agricultural  district which had the votes. If the  province is to speedily realize that  glorious destiny which nature intended,  the government should do more to encourage the development of her greatest resources.

Companies Making a Great Race For Franchise���Are Willing to Build a Tramway to  Phoenix. Public Meeting Discussed the  Propositions.  Greenwood must be a great city or  else those having money to invest have  the most implicit confidence^ in its  rapid growth; During the week no  less than two companies made strenuous efforts to secure a charter to install an electric light plant. They  deposited marked cheques for $5,000  each as an earnest of their intention  and offered to build a tramway to  Phoenix if franchise were granted.  The first who asked for the franchise  was P. "Welch & Co., the well-known  railway contractors. Through their  solicitors Pringle & Whiteside they  made formal application at the oad-  journed meeting of the council held ori  Friday night last week. They wanted  an exclusive franchise for five years,  and if this were granted, they were  prepared, to install and maintain a  complete electric light system in the  city. They also undertook to have the  system completed within 90 days from  the time the franchise was granted.  A public meeting was held in Rendell's  hall on Saturday evening todiscuss the  proposition. Mayor .Hardy presiding.  There was considerable diversity of  opinion regarding the best to be done.  Some held that there was such an  absolute necessity for electric light  that tlie offer, should be accepted ;  ;, others thought the city should install  "its own plaint, while the still further  few held that the electric light should  be tied: to Phoenix tramway and no  franchise should be granted to any  company that did not undertake to  handle both propositions. Several  resolutions were submitted to the meeting but no definite action was taken.  At the regular meeting; of the city  council on Monday evening a by-law  granting franchise to P. Welch & Co.,  was submitted. Mr. Pringle submitted the following for the consideration  of the council: ' '* -  ��� "With respect to the electric light franchise  which we are seeking on behalf of our clients,  P. Welch & Co., we are instructed to inform you  that on account of the desire mauifeste d to  couple with an'Clectric light system a tramway  to Phoenix, our clients are desirous and willing  to build the tramway, if the same can be made  possible, and will enter enter into such agreement as it may appear to you to be necessary to  guarantee the building of such tramway,'providing that on your part you will give them, as  an assurance of bonafides, an undertaking of  binding effect, that 5 per cent, interest will be  guaranteed on a bonded indebtedness of. the  tramway of $100,000, and further that you will  indemnify them from all expenses incurred iu  endeavoring to obtain the charter,: should the  same be refused by the Lieutenant-Governor in  Council." .''.,������  I system was not completed. In refer-  ; ence to the charter they wanted the  city to guarantee the interest on $100,-  000 bonds, assist in getting a -charter  and exempt their system from taxation  for 10 years. They also wanted the  city ' to secure the right of way to  Phoenix. Mr. Shaw presented a letter  from F. J. Finucane, manager of the  Bank of Montreal in which it was  stated that Mr. Mcintosh's' syndicate  was financially able to install electric  light and build the tramway.,  Mr. Pringle thought that it would be  a dangerous tiling for the city to promise a free right of way to Phoenix.  Aid. Galloway stated that he understood new-propositions were to be submitted to the council, bnt there was no  improvement in these offered. He was  in favor of delaying electric light  order that the tramway might be made  a certainty. At present there was  nothing sure about the tramway. Mr.  Shaw pointed out that his clents were  rearly to deposit $5,000 that'the tramway would be built if a charter were  secured. ,  , Aid. Wood would like to see the absolute right to electric light franchise  made conditional upon the tramway  .being built.  Mayor Hardy suggested that the  council agree to consider either, proposition and then the city solicitor could  prepare a new agreement which could  be accepted or rejected by the syndicate. ".  Mr, Pringle pointed' out that this  course would prevent either one of the  companies from discussing the matter  further with the city. It would be  wiser to submit any amended proposition to both applicants.  Aid. Galloway rnoved that both propositions be rejected. This received  no seconder.  Aid. Wood moved and Aid. Sutherland seconded that Mr. Mcintosh's  offer be dealt with. This motion carried. ���       -      ���  The city solicitor and solicitors for  Mr. Mcintosh are considering <tn  amended proposition. It is possible  that an agreement satisfactory to both  parties may be reached.  The funeral of David Bryant took  place on Tuesday afternoon from Gulley's undertaking parlors gand was  largely attended.  Mr.. Pringle presented a marked  check for $5,000 to be deposited with  the council and to be forfeited unless  they would carry out everything stipulated in the by-law. ��� His clents were  ready to install th e system and ready  to go ahead at once if an opportunity  were granted.  H.'C. Shaw of Hallett & Shaw also  had a check aud a brief from Duncan  Mcintosh of the Winnipeg and others.  They were prepared to build an electric  light system within 90 days or forfeit  their check if they failed to do so.  The council decided to adjourn until  Wednesday evening in order that Mr.  Mcintosh might have an opportunity  to submit a definite proposition.  At Wednesday evenings meeting  every member of the council was present and there was a large attendance  of citizens. Mr. Pringle started the  discussion by again reviewing the  position of his clints. They were pre-  pared.to couple with the electric light  a tramway to Phoenix provided the  city guaranteed 5 per cent, interest on  the bonds up to $100,000 and assist in  securing a charter. He deprecated  the position assumed by the syndicate  in as much as they maintained that no  outside man should be allowed to invest his money in the city. It was  such a narrow policy as this, that started war in South Africa. The rates his  clients suggested were the same as in-  included in the franchise granted last  spring viz. $1 per month for each 16  candle power lamp for residences and  $1.50 for business houses. Street lights  $150 a year.  Mr. Shaw still maintained that if  any preference were to be shown it  should be to local men. His clents  were prepared to deposit $5,000 that  electric light plant would be installed  within 90 days and another $5,000 that  they would build the tramway provided  a charter could be secured. They  asked for an exclusive right for 10  years. They suggested an average  rate of $1 a month for 10 caudle power  lights. The $5,000 was a guarantee  that the plant would be installed and  they were prepared to forfeit S100 a day  for every  day   after  90 days that the  1  FOR 1900.

McMillan, managing-  director of the British Columbia, Rossland & Slocan Syndicate, limited, of  London England, was in town a few  days ago accompanied by J. W. Astlej',  the well known mining engineer of  Rossland, the two having-just returned  from an inspection of the Snowshoe  mine in Greenwood camp.  The Snowshoe is under bond to Mr.  McMillan's London syndicate and i:--.  being vigorously developed. A 40-  horse power boiler, an engine and hoist  were placed upon the property .in the  [ spring and a few weeks ago a five-drill  compressor plant was installed. During- the past summer a large amount of  development work has, been done on  the rproperty. The principal shaft is  now down about 200 feet and crosscut-  ting-east has been commenced to explore the large bodies at depth. A  great many open cuts have been made  and small shafts sunk at different  , points on the surface, to prove the extent of the ore deposits. Though  neither Mr. McMillan nor Mr. Astley  . were inclined to say much about the  results it is understood that the development work has been very satisfactory. ���'-.���������  Mr. McMillan, who is leaving for  London next month, says there is a  great future before the Boundarj- country, where an amount of" development  is being-, carried on of which the public  has no .conception. Whilst there are  some hig-h grade properties, most of  the mines-produced low-grade ore, and  the most important problem to solve is  that of cheap treatment for theje immense bodies of ore. Whilst several  smelters'are building,in the-Boundary  .country, and others are contemplated  it is hig-hly\ probable that-most of the  , large mines will treat their own ore in  u their own smelters and mills.���Grand  Forks Miner. '*"���"  *yNew Custom Mill.  Articles Of incorporation have been  filed wity the county clerk of Ferry  county, of the Republic Reduction company. The incorporators are Malcolm  B. Brownlee arid Walter Mackay, of  Spokane;' and James F. Lansing, of  Republics The capital stock is $50,000,  divided into 2,000 shares, and the life of  the corporation-is for fifty years. . The  directors named' forthe first six months  include the above named gentlemen  and Francis E- Sargeant, of New York  Elias F.*> Smith and; Marcus H. Lyrig",  of Republic. '  This is one of the first steps taken in  the erection and operation of the new  custom mill destined for Republic.  Other steps will follow in rapid succession and some time next spring, if  not earlier, the mill will be in operation. The site of the. proposed mill is  understood to be on the flat a short  distance below the Republic mill. During the present week there' were 'filed  in the auditor's office of this county,  deeds transfering the Harvey and;  Gene mineral claims from Frank  Truax and wife to J... F. Lansing.  These claims are bounded on the east  and south by lands included in the  Tonasket ranch, arid sit is .on these  claims, it is said, the mill is to be built.  Mr. Lansing- has been hard at work  on the details for sonie time and is still  busy arranging preliminaries. He does  not feel at liberty to make public the  plans of the company, as there is much  to l;>e accomplished-before it would be  prudent to do so. But the above are  facts that are of record.  E. F. Smith, one of the trustees, is  here, and also at work. Mr. Smith is  noted as a chemist, and for a long  time was connected with the Anaconda  company at Butte. All those interested are well known in western mining  and financial circles. The new mill  will have a capacity of 75 tons per day.  The. process to be used in treating the  ore is a secret, but those who claim to  know something of it say it will prove  to be "just the thing "r,for the character of ore mined in this district.���Republic Pioneer.  *&&&  ii*'.

Ottawa, October 21.���-The last  two.  weeks  has done much to clear the atmosphere of a larg-e amount of  misap-;  prehension as  to  the real  attitude of  the "government ' in  the matter of   a  Trahvaal   contingent.    In    my   letter  }wo   weeks  ago I quoted  Sir Wilfred  Laurier's   statement    of.  the   constitutional requirements in  such matters  showing- how, parliament not being in  sesssion,   the   g-overnment   was   very  definitely  restricted in  its powers of  action.     Parliament   is   co^niposed. of  two great sections���the supporters and  opponents! of   the  government; there  was no question that  any' proposal  to  offer Canadian help to the motherland  would ' be   cordially  endorsed-^by - the  Liberals-in  the  house,  sj.nd.it is.only  fair'to add that the personal sentiment,  of the rank  and file of the opposition  would- undoubtedly urge, them in  the  same direction.    There was no guar-;  antee,  however, as to, what course op'-;  position leaders might take  officially,  in view of the numerous ^instances of  captious   iand    indefensible    hostility  which  they have   so  often ^displayed-  towards- the government, in,the  past.  Before any action could be taken which  might involve a possible ; straining- of  the   constitution,   absolute unanimity,  was   required,   and   it   was - therefore  grafifying- to the g-overnment  to  receive Sir Charles Tupper.'s assurance7  of support in the proposal; to carry for-  ward.preparations for the dispatch of  the/Canadian  contingent.   For weeks  'prior/to. the date when final action was  decided . upon,  the  minister of militia  had'fbrseen the possible developments  that'might., arise, and with the approval of his colleagues had,'- without'fuss  or .publicity been completing the details  of organization,  with the result  that when the moment for definite action ^arrived,   the  Canadian bafcallion  ' could-b'e.organized andr equipped with  remarkable celerity and thoroughness.  ' The official reticence-whichisan inherent-necessity in all such matters,  ledfto^a certain amount, of misconcep-  tion^ofX^he true condition affairs, but  now that-.developments have arrivedfat,  that stage when the course.pursued.by  the g-overnment can be disclosed in all  details,/,,and the^.:absurdity;bf:the outcry-about disloyalty is manifest-to the  most-supertciaV-bniopker. 'f'Jtisgratfy-  ing to.notejthat the,o amends..honorable  is being- made by those whose enthusiasm and ultra loyalty has led them into  ill-considered criticism; _as for exam pie  the case of Lieut.-Col. G. T. Denison,  the widely known, military authority  of Toronto, who''.declared;frbm the public platform-a day or two ago: ; "There  has'beena" great deal said about Can-'  ada failing in its whole duty in not  paying the full expenses of .the contingent. ���.' li am glad on ,that; account  that it has'been clearly and definitely  shown that it is the*;wjsh:.pf'the British  government that the men should be  paid from imperial funds and not by  any of the colrieial authorities.;/ Had it.  ��� ; i ��� ��� ���' ~J -. . . .< '���  not been so Canadians would'have felt  that they were, not doing their.whole  duty. Now they feel relieved to know  that   the  Dominion "government is do  ing all that the imperial government  Wishes it to do, or would allow it. to do.  Then in the second place it should be  remembered that the home authorities  have yielded to the wishes of Canada,  and have permitted the men to go as a  distinct contingent so that on both  points we should be satisfied."  FHENCH-CANADIAn'LOYALTY.     -, ������������  Another feature of no mean importance which has cropped up incidentally  in this discussion is the attitude of our  French-Canadian '��� fellow    countrymen  towards the. empire, and Col. Denison's  remarl^'thereo'n'j'iri the  course "of the  same spee.ch, are worthy  of reproduction",; forxthe gallant colonel is recognized as an.historical authority just as  much as he! is  a ^military  expert:    "A  point I wish to emphasze,"'he said, "is1  ���that if our beloved country  is  ever" to  "become a great and powerful nation, if  the time,is/ever, to  come, as I hope it  will, when Canada'will be the most important;^ the most powerful,  and the  most populous part of the greatest empire' in' >the  world,- it  will only be accomplished through  the united efforts  of   every,   indiyidnal,   by   the   people  standing together as one. ,. History has  shown its that- on  every occasion when  the necessity has; arisen, the Canadian  people have stood:together.   -We'.-.must  not   forget  that  it .was! owing  to the  loyalty of the French-Canadian popula- ;  tion that in 1776 this country was saved j  to the British empire and for us today/j  In- the war of 1812-14 these men stood  ..shouldeif to  shoulder with pur fathers  and   fought  on   the  same   fields with  them,*with;the result vthat' the invader  was repelled and bur freedom and- na'-:  tionality'preserved.''"."���" "      *""-    ^ittUiiuuumm^^^  -IS'T'I.rM BEST HOTEL IN GREENWOOD.
