Premier Ward, interviewed at Wellington said that the Cabinet was unanimous and added that-the -burden  upon the British Nation for Naval expenditure was enormous, and that  every loyal subject must feel, in a  crisis like this, that he was called  upon to help the mother land by  more than-words. New Zealand was  proud of her past proofs of loyalty,  and stood to-day among the first in  the British Dominions for a, ready and  loyal response when the necessities of  the Empire called for. if.

Melbourne, March 23.���������The Commonwealths Government has decided,  not to offer a Dreadnought to England, preferring to adhere to her settled policy of defending Australia.  Ministers generally are reticent on the  subject.      '  Widespread enthusiasm, prevails  here over the question, and Dreadnought meetings, are projected at  numerous centres.  CANADA'S  KESPONSIIJILITY.  Ottawa, March 23.���������At a caucus of  Conservative members and senators  this morning, the question of contribution by Canada to the Imperial  Navy was discussed, and it is understood that there is a feeling strongly  favorable to the Dominion taking immediate action towards lending a helping hand -to the Mother Country.  There was much Press discussion of  Mi-. Foster's motion, which, in effect,  says that Canada should no longer  delay in assuming a proper share of  the responsibility and financial burden  incident to suitable protection of her  exposed coastline and great seaports.  This motion has been on the order paper since the beginning of the-session.  ONLY  ONE  NOTE.  Toronto, March 23.���������Thy .sensational despatches from New Zealand regarding the British Naval quastion were  the sole topic of conversation on the  street yesterday. A largo number of  leading business and professional men  were asked what their views were as  to what Canada should do as a contribution to the national defence.  Without exception tho reply was that  the Canadian Government should  make some proffer of aid to the Imperial authorities. The general sentiment was that it would be a humiliation to every patriotic Canadian,  should tiny New Zealand outdo us at  this crisis.  CHILDREN  HUnSCHIKK.  MARTIN BURRELL TALKS FRUIT  His Thorough Knowledge of the Subject  Shown in Debate on Fruit  Marks Act.  When the question of amendment of  Fruit Marks Act came up in the House  the principal part of -tlie discussion  Avas taken by the member for Yale-  Cariboo. Mr. Burrell had given notice  of various amendments to the Fruit  Murks Act,, and--when. he. took.occasion-  to explain these, the House were soon  made aware of'the fact that not only  hud he.a thorough grasp of his subject,  but that he was prepared to divest it  of all political bearing and consider it  wholly in'-the interests of the fruitgrowing industry.  So marked was this that Hon.  Sydney Fisher, the Minister of Agriculture, to whose-department full tho  responsibility of directing legislation  appertaining to fruit-growing, complimented him on the spirit of fairness  which had been displayed in dealing  with the subject.  One of the greatest needs pointed  out by Mr. Burrell was more thorough  inspection. This he said was in the  interests of fruit-growers and also of  consumers who are now paying forth e best grades of fruit and were  not  On Wednesday of last week Barratri  Penz an Italian station-man up  at Hankinson's camp got mixed up in  a dynamite explosion and was badly  injured. He'<was brought down to  Hedley and is now in care of Dr.  Rankin, in the. construction hospital  down near the sawmill.  A six foot hole had been drilled and  they were going-to spring it. To do  this a piece of fuse.two' feet long and  detonator was attached to. a stick of  dynamite and dropped into . the hole.  Usually this is considered safe enough  as the two feet of fuse, generally lets  the man get far enough away, and a.s  the effect is only to shatter the bottom  of the hole and make a bigger- space  for., powder for the real charge, no  injury is likely to ensue to any one  who is not immediately, in line of the  hole . It was the brother of tha injured man who dropped the."fuse in,  not noticing that his brother wa.s a  few feet away coming with a pail- of  water. Had everything,gone all right  both could have gob clear away, but  the shot, went off immediately and  caught Barratri fair in the face as he  was passing. The most feasible explanation is 'thatthe concussion caused  by the charge falling on. the bottom of  the hole put.it off, for the man who  dropped it in,was only two or three  steps away when the shot went.  The face of the injured man was  quite badly burnt With powder and  riddled with small p.ieces of rock. A.  portion of the lower lip was carried  away and front teeth knocked out while  both eyes are closed. It may of course  be possible that the sight has not been  destroyed, but the chances are against  it.    ���������lffii������ -  . :   An Inexpensive Improvement That  Should no Longer be  Neglected  ' The Gazette has noticed at intervals  for several months past, reference in  Chesaw and Molsun papers wherein  the County Commissioners in Washington-state were being asked to put  iip ..cheap signs at every cross-roads,  explaining" where the roads lead to.  This meets the Gazette's view exactly, and it is years since we fiist recognized the benefit,to b.ederived from  such an innovation, although that is  not the right name to apply to it, seeing- tliat our forefathers had far more  sense in such matters than we have,  and in the old country it is said to huvo  been-si common  thing, to  have signs  RAILWAY    GRADE    ADVANCING  Grade Completed All The Way to   Bulldog Brown's  getting that.  In the matter of duty on fruit Mr.  Burrell not ask for increase of duty at  the present time, but did ask for more  rigid inforcernent of the customs regulations governing the importation of  fruit, and he thought that- if , the [ire-  sent law was properly carried out it-  would answer the present needs of the  industrv.  GETS MORE FOR MONEY  Comparison of British and   United States  Naval Programme and Cost  of Same.  The work of grading on the V. V. &  E. is now so well advanced that about  Toper cent of it between here and  Princeton is.completed.  With the removal of No. 1 camp  this week to Norman's, the nearest  camp to Hedley is Madclen's camp at  Sterling Creek about four'.miles out,  although there are, of course, gangs  of station men on smaller jobs between  here and there. A few days'work remain to be done on the station grounds  to make, room for yard trackage, but  from there on it .is completed to the  bank of the river, and on the, other  side it is done all the way to Bulldog  i Brown's where a gang of station men  are at work.  Between there and Madden's camp  there are a few short breaks, but be-,  youd Madden's camp many -miles of  grade have been built. In fact it is a  very safe estimate to place .the completed portions between Hedley and  Princeton at 75 per cent.  placed at cross-roads informing wayfarers of the direction and location of  towns and stopping-places.  In the summer of 1S93 the. editor of  the Gazette   had  the  honor of being  the first newspaper man who   strayed  away fro'm the Okanagan river which  was then the only highway   of  travel  between    Washington   State  and  the  Canadian Pacific.    The.only-thoroughfare .east and west was  the  Dcwdney  trail and away from.it branching in  various  directions  at long   intervals  were various  prospectors'  trails,   but  with the single exception of Boundary  mountain, not a sera}) to show where  the trails.led to. On Boundary mountain, however, there  were  thoughtful  level headed .prospectors, who at every  point    where   a   trail, branched  off,  either' in- the woods  or on" an  open  mountain siderhad taken  the  trouble  to split off a piece of wood,  smooth it  off-with an axe and write or,paint on  it an arrow and the name of the camp  which the trail led to and  distance in  miles.  No one can tell what an advantage  and satisfaction this was to a wayfarer making his way about alone on  foot or on horse-back.  A few years later Billy Younkin and  others adopted a similar plan for the  main and branch trails on McKinnuy  mountain..  Now it is just as necessary and  would be more beneficial to-day not  only on the trails but all the roads of  the district, for there are more of  them no.wand more people-using them.

The picture is  labelled "How Johnny Canuck Would  Keep the Old Flag Floating."  Washington, March  24.��������� The  British naval estimates, in themselves, are  always interesting, but they are doubly interesting when they are compared  with those  of  the  United  States   for  the same year.   It is particul.-u-ly noteworthy when compared with those   of  the United States or  our  navy;   what  England pays and what wo get for our  money and what England gets.     The  naval bill as passed   by  congress   this  year carries $120,035,100.05.    In return  for this expenditure we receive in   the  wiiy of new construction   two   Dreadnoughts, eight, lorpedoboi-itdestroyers,  one collier and four submarines.     The  British estimates   provide   for  an   appropriation of .$175,713,50!) with which  will he built   four  Dreadnoughts,   six  protected cruisers, twenty   destroyers  and $5,000,000 worth of submarines.  hi other words, England, at an   outlay    of    about   $40,0011,00!)  more,   re-  A PECULIAR SITUATION  B.

When the townsite work and  land surveys wen; resumed, the men's  drove by the new road southwardly  through Westhank.

But the same applies to almost  every road through Similkam'een, and.  yet we do not believe that it would,  take more than $25.00 to put up the  necessary sign at eacli cross-road in  this riding.

The failure of the administration,at Ottawa to give the ready  response in the matver of support to the navy which Canada  owes to herself as the most important British colonial possession, will prove a great disappointment to loyal Canadians  in all "parts of the Dominion  regardless of political leanings.  If the dispatch to the Vancouver World be accurate and  sets forth all that the government of Canada had to offer in  such a crisis when Australia  and i\rew Zealand had done so  nobly, it is indeed another instance where true Canadians  were made to drain the cup of  deep humiliation.  Unfortunately it   is   not the  first  time, for it: is not  so   very  'long.ago that Canada's premier  turned a cold shoulder and   refused to give accord   when  the  matter of contribution   to   imperial defence  came up  before  the colonial conference in  London which he attended as  Canada's   representative.      As  the  result  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's  attitude to the question of  contributing to the support of  the  British navy  on   that  occasion  we   had  the  late  Sir Richard  Seddon, premier of New Zealand  addressing audiences at leading  points in Canada and   lecturing  us on our duty in   this  matter.  Occasionally    we   find   Canadian newspapers with a streak  of yellow in   them,  advocating  the pernicious doctrine of non-  participation     and     ridiculing  what they sneeringly dubs the  "naval spirit."  Any Canadian, who is so  small-souied as not to see the  humiliating position which the  people of Canada occupy in allowing the mother country to  tax her people $0.80 per he;.id  per annum for imperial del once  while Canada's annual contribution is only 60 cents per ic,*,.!,  should have sense enough to  keep such ignoble sen tho ones  to hmiseii: instead of trvmg  to preach them. And iv:-mn  Canadian newspapers attempt  to tell us  that Canada  (vumot  British navy, it is the Canadian  government that is imposing  the tax and not the British.  Canada is a self-governing-  country, and she can vote  money for whatever, she likes,  and surely no one will say that  it is not. constitutional for her  to vote money for her own  defence.  In early October 1899, Laurier  gave us the same kind of guff [water is.another question, . and  ahout the' constitutionality of ! it may weigh -somewhat with  sending Canadian troop's''��������� .to j independent legislators.

The debate came up on a motion introduced by Mr. Burrc-11 to compel the  holding of elections all on.one day.  Mr. Burrell m his speech showed  conclusively the injustice. of the  practice. Fielding was leader of the  House in the absence of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier. Many government.supporters  agreed with Mr. Burr-ell's contentions  and said so. ' Mr. Fielding also admitted the force of the arguments advanced, bub said that the government  couldn't accept the motion as it might  be construed as 'a" want of confidence"  motion, and on that contention had  his followers vote it down.  Even Congdon of the Yukon agreed  with the 1 notion, and said that' there  was nothing to prevent the writ  being telegraphed from Ottawa, to  the  more distant constituencies.

MOST POWERGUL  WIRELESS AFLOAT  Jim  Hill's  Big Ocean Liner Minnesota  Now Carries It.  Seattle, March 15.���������The steamship  Minnesota, of the Grectt Northern  steamship 'company will be equipped  by the United Wireless Telegraph  company with' the most powerful  wireless telegraph sob afloat. Work  on the installation of the. apparatus  has started and will be completed  before March 20 when tlie ship will  sail for the .Orient.  , The apparatus will be three and one  half kilowatt   capacity.     This  is  one  and one-half kilowatt more  than   the  most powerful set  of  instruments  in  the United States navy.      The   battleship    Connecticut,     which   holds   the  long distance record for the navy,  has  only .a   two .'kilowatt  set.     This   set,  which is rated at four, has never  been  able to make more than two. Figuring  on    the    same    basis    the   Minnesota  would    be   rated   at  seven   kilowatts, |  <$,  but the wireless engineers   are  giving  ' tho lowest rating.    As the.  Minnesota  has plenty of electricity aboard,   there  will   be   no  difficulty   in   getting   the  maximum of capacity out of the wireless out fib.  Wireless engineers believe with this  equipment the Minnesota will be able  to keep in constant communication  with laud during the entire trip to  the Orient. In addition to having a  powerful apparatus, the vessel will  have an exceptionally long stretch of  antenna wire. This is made possible  . by the great-length' of the liner. It  is the great stretch of wire between  bhe masts that, counts when the receiving ability is taken into consideration.  According to the United Wireless  construction engineers the Minnesota  will be able to transmit, aerograms  from the Orient to the coast of the  United States at-night. This placing  of so powerful an apparatus aboard a  boat is somewhat in the nature of an  experiment find wireless experts are  expecting marvellous results.
