The.construction of  the Pucllic Railway, as at first projected, for  instance, at a supposed cost of two hundred  millions, would-cost the country $12,000,000  a year of interest, swelling tip the interest account alone to a figure very nearly approximating to the entire revenue of the country.  The amount expended on capital account  during the year was $19,864,319, of which  613,859,070 84 was for'debts allowed to the  Provinces, and $4,827,183 71 on the Intercolonial Railway.: ;'V-":    fifi AA'AfiAfiA; -fi  The total net debt of the country amounts  to the very large sum of $99,848,461 64. The  total debt is $129,743 432 19, and the total  assets $29,894,970 65.   The; interest on our  assets is only $467,900' Off, aud the interest  on our debt $5,549,374 57."'. To those who  consider a national debt a national blessing,  the pleasing reflections presented by these  figures will be enhanced by the fact that we  are about to enter into obligations wbioh will  "���������Wble the debt, and consequently the inter^  '���������; which tho country has to: be taxed;  directly.

In  i*js  THE CARIBOO SENTINEL  ** ���������    ������������������     ��������� ���������  SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1874.  WILL THERE BE A DISSOLUTION?  A few people in ibis community are can-  vasBing the probabilities^ of a tifBSolutiba of  the Local Legislature auent the preBumed  ������ariy. submission to the country of tbe modifications in the Railway clauses in the Terms  4>f Unionto be asked for by i^e Fea������ral GoV-  ennnent. An Influential correspondent writes  us from Lightiiihg creek, asking us for information in the matter, deprecating a disaola  tion on the very grave grounds, that .in case  such a course were to be advised by the Executive the bare possibility even of affording  men of tbe* Robstm-Hu mphrey Stamp an opportunity of getting into power would be  ���������fraugbt' witb danger tiTtlie province, while  the liberal, progressive policy of the Government might be imperilled by their retirement  at a period when it requires*tbV marked ability of its inaugurators to\ carry it ou t successfully.   Other strong reasons might be ad  duced against:a dissolution of the House at  the present time when negotiations for modi-  cations inittie Railway Terms may be entered  Into at auymoment; It is absolutely necessary at the" pre sent crisis "that-tlie interests of  British Columbia should be' gri arded by pol>  iioians of experience and proved ability, and  anch men are now conducting the Government  of the Province.  "Infant politicians" might  be floatedfi onj,bp surface "Unwittingly by, the  popular vote during, tbe excitement vof an  ; eieotion-^and then-" where would we be V?i  Our interests would be very secure in tlie  bands of untried men, or in the bands of men  like Robson and Humphreys, whose price, as  stated by.themselves, is a Portfolio and an  Indian Cominlssionership I   It is due to the  other Provinces $��������� tbfe;Bominion that the vote  of tbe-pejaple of-British^tjolumbia on the  snodifloations'-sbduld be a calm and deliberate  ������xpreBSlon of the"WHtof "Iheypeople on the  matter at issue���������entirely unbiassed by the  rparty, personal, pjr ssc^ional^influences sure  io brought������np-in"th^Bi&e ofvl general elec  tion, wbenVShe advanta^ektffa Government  under the leadership: of y." Tom,   Dick,  or  Harry "^might "oast..this weighty question of  inodification enUrtly in the shade.   A large  majority of the people of this Province have  the utmost confidence in the ability of the  Local Government to successfully conduct  negotiations with the Federal Government on  tbe Railway modifications so that tbe interests  of the whole Province will be protected, and  it iB to be hoped the Executive will see the  wisdom of submitting the conclusions arrived  &4 to a direct vote of the people on their  merits solely, and not disturb and unsettle  i&e. province by the excitement consequent  bpon a general election.  THE DEPRAVITY OF HUMAN NATURE.  XThe following: titbit,  carefully  withheld  from, the Colonist, came out at New Westminster during'the process of the Texada invesligation.   Mr Moody being re-examined, said :  "I told hira (Mr.Robson) f was willing to  give all the information I could without being  bothered.   Be said, 'be knew this, but that  our political influence "was considerable apd  our firm had an iron heel on his neck, and we  Were friends of the.Government and trying So  bolster them up and crush him, apd be wai  bound not to submit.   Thatour member from  Burrard IrileiNba'd  damnably-betrayed hia  confidence, and that he was bound to crush  our influence.   He said he presumed we did  not know that wa w'ere inju ring him, bttt  nevertheless it was the fact.'��������� He spoke very  loud.   I said * I don't see why we should be  enemies of the Government because you are.'  " You, Mr Robson, said you wished to be a  personal friend of mine and of Dalby, but  that our and his   political   influence  were  against you;  Yon said Homer was a friend  of yours, but if elected would work with Mr  DeCosmos and would be used by him.   I  asked you if Homer eould be used by any  man?   You said yes, by DeCosmos, and that  lie was not independent.

The Government acted wisely in ap  pointing'the Royal Commission, thus afford-  ing the'chief mover in the matter a full opportunity of painting his own character  true to a dot. So far, throughout tbis  investigation, not a particle of evidence has  been brought forward affecting the honor of  any ..prominent members of the present or  previous Government It is to be regretted,  however, that tbe Commissioners have allowed  Mr Robson so much latitude in'endeavoring  to make out his case, for we think the private  affairs of some of tbe witnesses have been  needlessly dragged before the public.
