 F��B 2 4 J90 ���  i7  Vol. 8.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY L9, 1904.  No. 25  Barrirtgton Hktl Coffee  BAKER .&' CO., Importers and Roasters of  Coffee, have perfected a new process of granulating-coffee. This leaves the coffee'cut (not  ground) to a uniform fineness, after removing-  all chaff and. other objectionable matter. The  chaff which has been removed, contains.a large  ..proportion of the tannin or iujurious substance.  II is impossible to make a perfect" drink  from coffee ground in the old way, where dust  and chaff is indiscriminately mixed with, particles of all sizes.. Large and small particles  of coffee can no more be cooked together .than  large and small potatoes. On the other baud,  powdered'coffee results in a muddy infusion  which will not settle.

Returns  From Victoria  Gives Times Reporter His Views on  Work Accomplished.  Mr. J. R. Brown, M. I,. A., returned  this week from attendance upon the  recent legislative session, and a Times  reporter called on him at his law office  for the purpose of an interview upon  matters.relative to work accomplished.  In answer to the query as to what  important legislation was passed at  the session just closed, Mr. Brown said.:  . "The most important legislation is  contained iu what is known as tilt- government's Financial programme. This  includes the L,oan bill, Assessment act,  Amendment to the L,aud act, Amendment to the Coal Mines act and the  Railway Assessment act.  "The Loan bill empowers the gov-  ernmgnt to borrow $1,0(10,000 at a rate  not exceeding- five per cent per, the interest and...$100,000 to be repaid every  year. Tli is is a larger rate of interest  than was ever paid by this province  and probably by any ,Pyilish possession  fo<- a loan extending over a term of  years. The opposition protested  against tho terms of. this loan and  moved au amendment to the effect  that the government be empowered to  negotiate a loan -repayable- in three or  four years. Tt was pointed out that by  that time the financial stringency at  present existing .would have had time  to pass away and. a loan for a term of  years could be negotiated on as favorable terms as had been done heretofore  It was also pointed out that the rev-  euue of the province for a number of  years past had failed to meet the ex-  l^ntlitiiiT^"froin"'SS00;000ito 3750,000  per year, that the government had announced its intention of making the  revenue meet the expenditure, and that  to add another S15C.000 per annum was  going to impose a very grievous burden  on the people. The amendment was  defeated.  "Probably the most important bill  passed was ihe Assessment act. This  bill increases the taxes on both real  and personal property���on real property  about SO per cent, on personal property  from 50 in 200 percent. Some of the  provisions of this bill, notably those  dealing with personal property, are  glaring examples of ill-advised legislation, batiks are favored at the expense of other Holders of personal property, and a merchant will have in many  instances to pay taxes not only on  what he owns but on what he owes as  well. The iniquity of these provisions  were pointed out by the opposition  again and again, protests were made  by many of the Boards of Trade and  many oilier representative bodies in  province, but Ihe government, aided  by their Socialist followers, voted  them through. Some of the provisions  of this act are so extraordinary that  neither the Finance Minister or the  Attorney General could tell what they  meant when asked to do so on the  floor of the house.  "Nothwithstanding the plank in the  Conservative platform to abolish the  two per cent, tax on minerals it still  remains. The Assessment Act as  brought down contained the same provisions with regard to this tax as the  old act. Its unjust nature as far as  low grade ores were concerned was  pointed out by the leader of the opposition, myself aud others when the bill  was brought down as well as the fact  that in continuing this tax the Government was violating a plank in the  Conseruative platform and the oft reiterated pledges of themselves aud followers. The Government could not  defend  the proposed   imposition   an!  shime-facedly agreed in committee to  strike out all provisions with regard to  taxation of mines out of the act. This  was done, and the Premier stated that  he would bi iug; down'a substantive act  dealing with this before recess. He  did not do so. The provisions of the  old Assessment act with regard to taxation of mines were not i epealcd so the  iniquitous two per cent, still remains.  The Premier atfout the close of the  session submitted a draft bill, for taxation of mines to the mining committee. The principal provision of this  proposed act was one whereby the  gross output of the mines were to be  taxed one per cent. -JI was pointed  ont that this would accentuate tlie  grievance now complained of���the unjust incidence of the tnx on low grade  ores���and nothing further was done  about it.  "The other bills constituting the Government's financial programme were  all framed with the same object in  view as the "Assessment Act", that is  to increase the revenue,having little 'or  no regard as to whether' they ' would  work out any degree of fairness io the  parties and interests affected or not.  Many of theprovisions were challenged hy the Opposition and in some cases,  e. g. iu the amendment lo the "Land  Act" some of the objectionable features were altered or modified. In  other cases the Government'aided by  its Socialistic followers voted down  amendments offered by the opposition,  the argument in favor of which were  unanswerable. This need not occasion so much surprise when we take  into consideration the statement of the  leader ofthe Socialist wing of the Conservative party made on the lloor of  ��-he house that they���the Socialists-  did not care who were taxed nor how  they were taxed nor how much money  was voted nor where it was spent nor  .in"what manner so long as Ihe burdens  of the working classes were not directly increased."  "Why was no railway legislation  brought down, Mr. Brown V"  "The Government is recognized as a  weak Government but its failure to  bring- down any railway legislation  disappointed even some of its own  followers. The opposition tried to  spur up the government to do its duty  in this regard as the records of the  house will show. The Premier promised on several occasions, in answer  to the pointed question^ of the leader  of the opposition to take the house into his .confidence with" rc7Jard~lcThTs  railway policy but in each cane failed  to keep his word, and at the last, to  keep some of his rebellious followers  in line, promised a summer session to  take up the question."  "Have you anything lo say about  appropriations?" was asked by the re-  reporter.  "The appropriation for roads, trails  and bridges was cut down over S200,-  000. I think this parsimonious policy  will result badly, as in many ridings  the sum voted will not keep the existing roads and trails in repair. Greenwood riding just gels $2500 which i.s  pretty small considering the revenue  we contribute and the urgent need for  constructing some new roads.'"  "I believe Mr; Macdonald has given  great satisfaction as leader of the  opposition," said the reporter.  "The leader of the npnositiou won  golden opinions from all sources for  the straight-forward, sensible course  pursued by him on all questions that  came up for consideration, livery member of the opposition has the greatest  confidence in his judgment, integrity  and ability. Mr. McDonald, as the  next premier of British Columbia, will  be what this province has beeu wanting for a long time���a safe yet progressive man. .   . *.,      ���  Mrs. Geo. Daugherty left Monday for  Rossland where she has friends and a'c-  qt?aintanc6s, with thcinte'ntion of making that place her home in future.  At the regular meeting of the Oddfellows last Tuesday night two candidates were instructed in the  mysteries  o ������  of the third decree, thus .adding two  more members to the already large  membership of this organization. Several brethren from Trail aud Rossland  were visitors.  'F. Ogle, representing the Kootenay  Mail, was in the Boundary this week,  being- in Greenwood Thursday.  PHOENIX MEN  MAKE DEAL  Work on Standard is Progressing  The Sally Mine at Beaverdell Ships  Three Cars of Ore.  Information is current that Geo. W.  Rumberger ind Thos. Roderick, both  well known Phoenix men, have purchased from the administrator of the  estate of the late Archie Connors' who  last September was accidently killed at  the Euiina miifc, Summit camp, a half  interest in the Summit and an adjoining mineral claim and a quarter interest in a third claim forming- part of  the Summit group. The purchase  price is repotted to have been $1,500  cash.* The late Mr. Connor was for  years a co-owner with W. A. Corbett,  who about two years ago sold his interest to Mr. Mclnnes, of Mclnnes &  Vaughan. Development work is to be  resumed on the Summit group at  once.  J, W. Nelson aud W. H. Rambo have  been engaged all winter opening up  the Standard, which adjoins the  Rambter., on Wallace mountain, near  Beaverdell, west fork of Kettle (river.  They have driven a tunnel now in  about 70 feet on a quartz vein running-  high in silver. The pay streak varies  much in width, ranging from two to  eighteen inches of ore in which native  and brittle silver show freely. The  showing in the face of the drift is  about twelve inches of ore of ' high  grade. , ���  Three cars of ore running high in  silver with some gold are being hauled  from the Sally mine, near Beaverdell,  to Midway for shipment thence by C.  P. R. to the Trail smelter. There is  nowsuflicient^snow^io^inaike^the'rOid"  from the west fork good for heavy  hauling. A car of ore is also being  sent to Trail from the Butcher Boy  claim, in Carmi camp, half a doaen  miles higher up the west fork than  Beaverdell.  The Payne company, Slocau, has  closed a contract with the Aaron Hirsh  & Sohn company, of Halderstadt, Germany, for about 2,500. tons of zinc, says  the Sandon Standard. The deal was  closed last Saturday by S. Hirsh, rep*  resenting I,. Vogelstein, a Wall street  broker. The ore will be shipped in  bulk and will comprise the most of the  output of the Payne. With a market  for silver, lead zinc, and iron, the  Payne should be on velvet before long.  The Hercules and Yukon claims, a  mile and a half south of Danville.  Wash., have been sold by J. M. Paulson to eastern purchasers. A shaft on  one of the claims is to be limbered and  put in shape, and the property will  shortly be equipped with machinery.  Some ore is being shipped from the  Minnehaha mine, about two miles  south of Danville.  It i.s reported that rich ore has been  encountered iu the Junebug, near Anaconda.  The tunnel at the Dynamo mine is  now in about KK) feet.  Parties wishing cut flowers of any  variety can secure them at Munroe's.  Don't miss the sale of fancy china at  Coles & Frith.

Surveyor   Ashcroft    Returns  Good Report.  Provincial Land Survey A. ft. Ashcroft returned this week Tuesday from  Vernon, wliere lie had been the past  two months engaged in survey work  on the line of the Midway and Vernon  railway,  Five miles of this line from Vernon  in this direction have heen surveyed,  leveled aud cross-sectioned,so that now  the company may at any time call tor  tenders for the -construction of that  portion.  According' to provisions of the company's charter work had to be commenced on the Vernon end before the  the 28th of December, VMU. To conform to this requirement, Mr. Ashcroft  was sent over to Vernon to locate the  line at that end, and put men lo work,  two of whom have ever since been enraged in roadbed building. Of course  it i.s not expected that the continuation  of so small "a force on the proposed  line will satisfy the requirements of  the charter nor the promoters of the  undertaking indefinitely, but the delay arises from a desire^of the builders  of the road to secure from "the goveu-  iiietil needed concessions to make the  enterprise a reasonably feasible one.  Mr. Ashcroft, during his absence,  traversed the country through which  the new line will run from Vernon to  Kelowna. Owing to elevations and  grade difliculties he found it necessary  to change the line on Long lake,or tiiat  portion generally known as Wood lake,  to a point where there i.s a natural cut  in the hillside and where the lake is  gathered to a narrowness that affords  a natural crossing, to the east side.  The former proposed route lay wholly  on thewestside of-Longhike.- -*���������-- ��� ��� -  The prime movers iu this enterprise  are Robt. Wood of Greenwood, and  Price Ellison of Vernon, jointly with  other large land owners along the  proposed route.  Now that they have secured from the  dominion and provincial governments  the needed appropriations and concessions it sought the Midway and Vernon  Railway Co. will prosecute the work of  construction of the new line vigorously, just as soon as a few further linan-  cial a flairs are arranged.  The completion of this road will not  only open up vast areas of agricultural  and mineral territory, but will put the  Boundary in closer touch with products  of the farm and orchard, and materially reduce the distance between this  section and the coast cities. The dis-  ance from this .city to Sicatiious by the  C. P. K. is 332 miles and the time occupied on the journey is 49 hours. By the  proposed line Ihe distance would he reduced to 181 miles, and time to lJ hours  ���which would work a saving of 40  hours, to say nothing of what would  be saved in passenger and frcignt rates  between the two points. From this  point to Vancouver by the C. P. R. the  distance is 607 miles, and time occupied is nearly C6 hours. By the new  line the distance would be 516 miles,  and time about 26 hours. This shows  that the construction of the Midway &  Vernon road would  work a saving in  distance between this section  and  the  coast 151 miles, and nearly 40 hours.  not only an eiilliusiatie curler but has  always taken an active part in all the  games of manly sport and the gift of  this cup will be a lasting tribute to the  sincerity of his desire to encourage  healthy amateur sport. For this competition new rinks have been drawn up  with the same skips ns elected at the  beginning of the season. Two games  were played last night aud resulted a.s  follows: Russell 16, Merritt 15; Johnston 17, Warren 11.  The series of games started about  six weeks ago for prizes donated by  the sk^s were completed on "Wednesday evening, and resulted in Mr. 15. W  Bishop's rink winning lirst prize. In  the final game for second prize Mr. J.  S. Birnie's rink defeated that of Mr  W. G. McMynn. For the booby there  are two rinks lo play oil' and :i suitable  prize is now being manufactured to  order. The winning rinks were made  up as follows: H. Redpath, J\ L. Coles,  A-. Logan, R. W.

LITTLE INTEREST SHOWN  A HANDSOME CUP  In   Local  Branch  Provincial Mining  .-^^-^^--..-���-Associationi���������-  A very small number of people responded to the call of President Keffer  at the meeting of lite Greenwood  branch of the Provincial Mining Association at' the city ball on Tuesday  last.  Tlte absence of most of tlie mining  men of the community fully excused  the absence of enthusiasm on the part  of the few lh:il were present. It was  resolved that the attempt lo send  delegates to Victoria to (he convention  on the 22nd inst., would be inexpedient.  Although the feeling prevailed that  the organization might as well disband  for all it might hope 'o accomplish  without the. support it appears to be  entitled to, the necess;uy action to that  end was deferred for the moment.  The officers of the organization present were discouraged, and we could  not expect it lo he otherwise.

Il is regarded as probable that
the Socialists of Yale-Cariboo
will place a candidate in the
field for M. P. honors in the approaching- elections. This is
•aid by the leading Socialists of
this section to be their intention.
The little brownies throughout
this country are full of patriotic
enthusiasm. Iu Chicago they
have subscribed $1.40,000 to the
Japanese war iloan, aud in Vancouver the little fellows collected
325,000 in aid of the Red Cross
society's hospital  work.
Either Chinamen are not coming into this province, or they are
stealing a march on the officials,
as not a single Chinaman has
beeu.noted as having paid the $500
poll tax for entry into Canada,
which went into force at the beginning of the year.
. The Hon. Clitiord Sifton is
((rafting regulations for the disposition of coal on the Indian
reserves'in the Territories. The
regulatious provide that persons
aquiring mining rights on Dominion lands or Indian reserves
shall be required to sell coal direct to customers at not more than
$1.75 per ton.
It would not be dec.ared a foul
if the little Jap should happen to
hit the big Russian below the
belt, occasionally. It should not
be expected the little fellows are
so stuck ou the ethics of international warefare as to carry u
stool around with them just fin-
UK' sake of hitting tlieir opponents above the belt every time.
The Jap is a good deal like the
butterfly; you can't tell what his
dstination is till he gets there.
Keighty-one Chinamen, originally destined for the West Indies,
but who were debarked in Montreal and have been for the past
three months detained in tbe C.
P. 1\\ immigration quarters, are
being deported to China, the
courts having decided that, according to the manifesto, thev are
not entitled to laud in this country. Was this an attempt to
smuggle Chinamen into Canada ?
If so, it has proven a costly fizzle
to some one.
Between the booming of cannon, tbe shrieking of wounded
warriors and tbe blackwar clouds
in the far east, and the fierce contests waged between Boundary
and Kootenay hockey and curling teams, our community is kept
in a feverish state of excitement,
the going down of a great Russian
battleship attracting almost as
much interest as the defeat of a
favorite rink, or the dash of a
champion knight of the hockey
"Its au ill wind that blows no
one any good." The scrap in
progress now between the Jap and
the Russ, is creating a market for
the products of America, and
Cauada will get her share. It
has already raised the price of
one Canadian product, namely,
fish. Of late years a considerable
trade has been worked up in a
low grade of salmon, and a few
days ago one of the companies
received an order for 390,000
pounds of that grade called dog
salmon direct from tbe Japanese
The owners of the ill fated
steamer Clallam are liable to have
trouble in large chunks shortly.
The result of the inquiry into the
cause of the disaster has'been the
suspension of Capt. Roberts'
lisence, and the permanent revocation of engineer Delaunuev's.
Thus ultimate responsibility reverts to the owners, who are
likely to have distressing damage
suits to contend with.
The largest monthly ore shipment ever recorded for the Boundary is shown in the January
statement, and this notwithstanding the fact that the Snowshoe is
not at present shipping. The
Grand total . was 75.208 tons.
Though many business houses in
the Boundary district realize that
there is more or less of a depression in business circles, yet, they
realize also that there is steady
progress being made iu the chief
industry of the district, and that
the future is l'n'1 of bright, promise.
The Grand Forks Board of
Trade which has been in a somewhat inactive condition for some
time past, is showing signs of
renewed activity. Al its last
monthly meeting steps were taken
to arrange for a permanent
mineral exhibit iu its rooms, and
also-to make an effort to secure
aid from the government to clear
the North Fork river <if driftwood jams. When Graud Forks
sees the need of doinsr.something
which it believes to be in the line
of a public benefit, its leading
citizens pull together with a
unanimity that is commendab'e
and worthy of emulation, and
whi'jh usually results iu   success.
Iu the bve-elelections held
on Tuesday last iu Ouebec, New
Brunswick and Prince Edward
Island to till vacancies in the
House of Commons, the result
in   the    eight constituencies  ap
pears from a long range view to
have been slightly favorable to
the Conservatives, by a reduction
of Liberal majorities iu some instances. The Conservatives got
possession of Hon. A. G. Blair's
former constituency, St, John,
but (he Liberals evened up the
situation by scooping St. James
constituency in Montreal. Thus
it seems St. James and St. .lohu
have repented aud resolved to
hereafter comport themselves, in
politics at least, more in accord
with their saintly names.
United States Senator Marcus
A. Hanna, of Ohio, died at his
Washington, D. C, residence, the
Arlington hotel, at 6:40 p. in.,
Monday, of typhoid fever, after
au illness of two weeks. He was
aged about f>7 years. Senator
Hanna bad long- been prominent
in political circles, and was the
most feared and at the same time
sought after leader in the Republican party. Probably W. J.
Bryan would have been elected
president of the United States instead of William McKinley had
it not been for Mr. Hanna's great
political acumen and forceful
leadership. He had sufficient influence over Mr. McKinley to
cause him to reverse himself ou
national financial questions and
abandon a policy he had hitherto steadfastly adhered to. The
death of Senator Hanna removes
a "bete noir" from President
Roosevelt's path to the president-
al chair for a second term, for
there is little, hope of a Democratic nominee being elected.
The second annual meeting of
the Interior District Libera!
council will be held in Rossland
on Wednesday, March 23rd, 1904,
commencing at 10 o'clock a. in.
Each Liberal Association is
entitled to send three delegates.
At the convention each delegate
present shall have one vote, but
in case any association shall be
represented by only two delegates
it may give one proxy in writing
to one of these delegates, but no
proxies shall be allowed, unless
two elected delegates are present.
Resolutions proposed for discus-
ing amendments to the Constitution and By-Laws, must be in the
hands of the secretary at least
twenty days prior to the date ol
meeting of said convention and
copies of such resolutions shall be
transmitted by the secretary to
the local associations at least
fifteen days before the convention; provided that by a two-
thirds majority of those present
any subject may be considered
and disposed of by the convention. As business of importance
to the parly will be discussed at
the convention, a special effort
should be made to have all associations represented. If fifty
delegates are in attendance a
single fare can be secured; if
fifteen nr more, a fare and one-
third; and if less than fifteen, a
fare and ,two-thirds. In order
that all delegates present may
have the full benefit of the reduced fare delegates should purchase tickets to Rossland taking-
receipt therefor. Upon presentation of the receipt the secretary can then arrange for reduced
fare for return trip.

A. (1. lilair, ex-minister <>f railways  and canals of Canada, has beeu appointed chairman of Ihe new Canadian  Railway commission, marks the close  of a transitional chapter in Uie railroad  policy of Canada, says S.J. McLean,  in the New YorU Railroad Gazette. In  the discussion of the problem of railroad regulation Canada lias gone  through many phases similar lo those  of the experience of the United Stales.  In '.he earlier '70s there were propositions akin to Ihe Granger legislation.  The.railroad consolidations which took  place in the earlier 'SOs led to propositions for the establishment of a railroad commission modeled on the English commission. In 1886 and 1RS7 the  whole matter was investigated by a  royal commission, which found that  there were grievances with which the  machinery provided by the existing  railway law could not deal. At the  same time it was considered that conditions were not ripe for the adoption  of the commission plan.  First  Move in 1884.  The English legislation was not considered applicable to Canada because  of the difference in conditions. The  Interstate Commerce commission was  too recent an experiment. As a compromise, il was suggested that the  railway committee of the privy.council  should be given cognizance of rare  grievance. This suggestion was acted  upon in the revision of the railway act  in lSSft. The railway committee of tlie  privy council was a committee of the  ' cabinet, composed of the minister of  railways and canals and certain other  members of the cabinet. This body  had been concerned wilh the general  supervision   and   enforcement   of  the  provisions of the railway act. It was  now made a tribunal to deal with sucli  railroad rate grievances as mi^ht arise.  Consideied Since 18Q7.  Since 1S97. shortly after the lion.  Mr. Blair was appointed minister of  railways and canals, the problem of  improved methods of railroad regulation has been under consideration by  the Canadian government. During  190l"a special investigation was made,  which found that there were grievances existing with which the railway  committee could not satisfactorily deal.  The report found that in the railway  committee il necessarily happened that  the minister of railways was the only  one fitted lo deal with the technical  details, tu strictness he had been the  railroad committee; and the regulation  .policy has varied as the interest in and  knowledge of matters of railroad regulation on the purl of the incumbent  of the oflice for the time being. Then,  again, while so much dependence  necessarily rests upon him it seldom  happens that in the first instance he  possesses technical knowledge of railroad a Hairs. Even when the knowledge of such ail'airs is obtained political exigencies may lead to an exchange of or retirement from ollice.  Committee Hampered  The royal commission of 1886 had  anticipated that the duality of function of the members of Ihe committee  would militate against its success. The  committee has also been hampered by  its uonmigratory character. In l8Sfi it  had been suggested that this might be  offset by the appointment of deputies,  who would make preliminary investigations for the information ofthe committee. This suggestion, however, had  not been acted upon.  The legislation of which the pro  vision for the railway commissions'  forms the central portion received very  careful attention. After the legislation had been drafted the railroads  were afforded an opportunity to present their views. The legislation was  presented pro forma iu the session of  parliament of 19i(2. Then it was once  more gone over carefully, and the matter was-brought to a final vote in the  session of parliament which closed late  in 1903. There was a substantial  unanimity on the part of both political  parties that such a measure was necessary; the criticism was directed to  details.  Three Have The Power  The commission is composed of  three members appointed by the cabinet. Each commissioner holds ollice  during good behavior for a period of 10  years, but is removable for cause. The  chairman of the commission receives  $10,000 a year. The other commissioners receive SS.OOO each. The acl gave  internal evidence that the chairman of  the commission was to be a lawyer,  expert in railroad law. The Hon. Mr.  Rlair, with over 20 years of active law  practice and seven years' experience as  minister of railways and canals, meets  every demand of the law.  I'o the commission are transferred  all the powers formerly possessed by  the railway committee. The enumeration of some of these powers will  serve to show how wide the jurisdiction is. It has power to make'regitla-  tions limiting- the speed of'trains in  cities and towns; to oversee provisions  hi regard to safety appliances; to pass  upon disputes arising in respect of railroad  crossings  and junctions; to hear  Continued on page 7  000<K><M><>0<>-<>0<KH>0-00-aCK>-0  SEVEN PROSPEROUS YEARS!  The Condition of Canada Seven Years Ago, and  the Condition of Canada Today  The story of tlie seven years of fullness is succinctly told in a poster  issued by the liberal Association of Ledtic, Alberta.    Here it is :  Seven years ago last .Tune the Conservative government was in  power. Today the Liberals are in power and this is part of their record  for the seven years past;  Seven years ago our revenue was $36,618,591; today it is 563,739,271,  or nearly twice as much.  Seven years ago we had a deficit of $330,000; this year we had a  surplus of over 313,000,000, or a betterment of a little over $13,000,000.  Seven years ago our foreign trade was 3239,000,000; today it is  $'159,000,000, or about twice as much.  Seven years ago the number of homesteads entered during the year  was 1,857; this year.il was 31,343, or a little over 17 times as many.  Seven years ago our cattle trade amounted to $104,451; this year it  was ��11,342,634, or say eleven limes .is much.  Seven years ago wc exported in oats 5273,861; this year we exported  $2.583,171, or over nine times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in Hour $718,433: this year we exported  34,699.142, or say six times as much.  Seven years ago our Territorial grant was 5267,000; this year it was  S957,00O, oi say four times as much.  Seven years ago our bank note circulation was $31,456,297; this year  it was $60,414,740, or say $2 to'Sl.  Seven years ago wc exported bacon to the value of $3,802,135; this  year we exported 3515,455,174, or about four times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in butter 34,000,000; this year we  exported 37.000,001)" or say twice as much.  Seven years ago we. exported in agricultural implements 3593,464,  this year we exported 32,284,904, or say four times as much.  Seven years rgo our mineral export was 34,419,170: this year it was  331,064,861, or say seven limes as much.  Seven years ago it took the bonding of three quarter-sections of this  laud to buy a bushel of seed grain from the government. This year lots  of this same land sold for one and two thousand dollars.  And last, but not least, seven years ago tons of Tory literature were  strewed over the width and breadth of this land abusing Mr. Israel  �� Tarte in every way imaginable.

The commission  is thuslniadc tlie general supervisor ofthe enforcement of the railroad laws.  Novel Rate Feature  It is iu respect of the provision ve-  gulating rates that certain novel features appear. Tu the drafting of the  legislation there were held in mind the  defects which Faiglish and American  experiences had shown in existing  legislative enactments. The Canadian  legislation provides that rates are to be  reasonable and just. The commission  may disallow any tariff which violates  this.provision. The railroad is to substitute a satisfactory tariff, or the commission may itself prescribe one.  The judicial emasculation ofthe "long  and short haul" clause of the act to  regulate commerce is well known.  Under the "long and short haul" clause  of the Canadian legislation it is explicitly provided that: it is the commission which is to determine when,  on account of competition, an exception is to be permitted. Further, the  commission determines what places are  competitive points. Tn regard to discriminations the question-'whether the  commodities have-been carried "under j  substantially similar -circumstances  and conditions" is a'question of fact  which the commission determines. The  legislation contains an autipooling  clause. This did not appear iu the  lirst draft of the legislation as submitted to parliament; nor did it excite  much discussion in parliament. The  Canadian railroad system has developed along the lines of division of territory .  Control Over Rate Making  The commission inherits lite powers  formerly possessed by Ihe railway  committee over classification and has  thus, with certain additional powers  conferred, complete ,.ontrol over the  base of rate malting. It may prescribe  a uniform classification, ft may allow  exceptions from this when in the public  interests. It may cause commodities  to be changed from one class to another. In regard to the rates themselves it i.s intended that rate making  should in the first instance be in the  hands of the railways; the powers to  be exercised by the commission are to  be remedial as well as preventive.  Where formerly the control was thru  maxima it is now concerned with the  published rates.  A sharp distinction is made between  noncompetitive traffic, iu which the  rates may be stable over a period of  time, and competitive tariff which may  require almost instantaneous readjustments of rales. There are to be three  classes of freight tariffs, known as  standard freight tariff, special freigh t  tariff and competitive tariffs. Noncompetitive traffic falls under the  standard freight tariff. The special  freight tariff is really a commodity of  exception tarill' concerned with commodities which must be carried on an  especially low rate basis. Tho competitive tariffs cover freight carried on  a low competitive base. Tt is to be remembered thai these are concerned  with traffic between points which the  commission has alread.y declared lo be  competitive.  Three Kinds of Tariffs  lloth the standard and the special  freight tariffs are required to be filed  with the commission before they can  be effective.    Public notice is  also   re  quired. The special freight tarill' has  the requirements of notice in regard to  advances and reductions which the  American legislation prescribes on  interstate rates. In dealing with competitive rates Ihe procedure is much  more elastic than iu the American  legislation. Tlie commission has a  dircctionary power in regard to the formalities lo be observed in connection  with their publication���no express  period of notice being specified���and it  may allow such tariffs to become operative before they have been tiled with  the commission.  The Chairman.  The chairman is a man of insight,  not illusions. The commission comes  at a time when a new transcontinental  railroad is being built to meet new  national needs, and at the beginning  of such an era of expansion the need  of a body which will stand for a consecutive policy is apparent. While the  government will be responsible for the  broad outlines of railroad policy, the  commission will be a body whose advice may always be available to the  government iu dealing- with railroad  affairs. The legislation explicitly  places the commission in a position  advisory to the cabinet not only in regard .to the financial condition of the  railroads, but also in regard to any  question which may arise under the  general or special railroad legislation  of the dominion. The whole tenor of  the movement which has culminated  in the new legislation warrants the  conclusion that the commission, both  as a commission and as regards its  individual members, will stand between the parties to the dispii'ryruid  not as an attorney for the piitiu'.ill';  the latter anomalous position bus from  time to time been present in American  regulative experience.

There used  to be an old fashioned remedy for  croup, known as hive syrup, but some  modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better, and  does not cost so much. It causes the  patient to "throw up the plegm"  quicker, and gives relief  in        a shorter time.       Give  this remedy as soon as the croupy  cough appears and it will prevent the  attack. It never fails and is pleasant  and safe to take. For sale by J. L.  White^Greenwood and  A.   K.  Thomas  Midway.
