Take for example Sir Charles Ttipper's  criticism   of   the   government's' trade'  policy when  the revised   tariff ofiS97  was announced:    1'The result is" says  Sir Charles,   " that thistariff' goes into  operation, and'the industries of   this  country are, already paralyzed,in consequence, while hon. members   gloat,  vindictively gloat, over the destruction'  of .Canadian   industries.      I  sav that  deeper-wrung,was never inflicted upon  Canada/''    The  fulfilment (?) of   this  prediction may be fonnd'ai the course  of  a, trade   leview'.  Wliich   has  just  appeared, and  which will be admitted  by all in a position to know to be a fair  statement of facts.    " One^'of the most  satisfactory features of the'trade situation" at present,'   says the writer in  question,   " is the healthy, state'of the  market for- home -manufactures. , The  mills and factories (if Canada ato very  biit-y.     Far from auv sign olVover-pro-  duction yet  t;iking���������pl,'ice,' they are unable to keep  up  with  the demand for  goods. < Skilled labor  was never in as  .active demand   in  Canada, as it is at  present,   and  a  great   inai-.y   factories  and   mills  n:e  working over! ime, and  artisans are  c.-irning  increased wages.  This'is   ;i   great    year   for   Canadian  matmfacllire's.     Notwithstanding   ihe  increased   UrFtish   preference   there is  great difficulty in securing some lines of,  goods from the British market. This is  owing to   the   fact, ,thnt   the -makers  over  ther   are   very  busy.    They are  independent, at  the moment,  of outside business.   'The result has given a  gfiiat'itnpetus to home  manufact m___.  The. demand  for home goods has liccti  fm ther stimulated bv tlie better quality of goods being   turned,out by'our  factories and mills.    In many Inequality of Canadian goods is  now so  high  as to leave little or no room'lor preference, being giv(>n to British  or  foreign  goods . by   Canadian, buyers.   This is  very, satisfactory' progiess   and  it is  fortunate that the enter prise of, Canadian maker's has been rewarded by- increasing sales of their .goods.   The result, is sure to lead to a steady demand  for them by people who formerly gave  the preference to British of continental lines."

An interesting discussion took place  in the house at Ottawa on Monday on  the occasion of the third reading of the  bill to incorporatcthe Comoxandr.Cape  Scott railway company. . Mr. Mclnnos  moved   to   insert  a clause to prevent  Chinese- being employed   in   the construction  and- operation  of  the road..  He   made   a   vigorous attack  on  the  Dunsmuirs   who,   he   said,   had.' done  everything  possible   to  degrade labor  in  British  Columbia.   , Mr.   Morrison  saw noN object in  tacking'tin amend-  ment-'of this kind to a sjngle billl   The  Privy Council of England had decided  against the  unconstitutionality of' the  coal  mines  regulation  in  British Col-  amibia.aiid it would  be folly to pass an  amendment of this  kind  which   was  practically  on  tlie, same   lines.   ' Sir  Adolphe C.'ii'on  asked the government  to clearly- define its  policy  regarding  Chinese.     After some discussion, Premier Laurier said  that  so long as the  present system  ot taxing Chinese was  in force, lie did not see how they could  prevent'Chinese'from  getting'   work.  They must either  adhere to this policy-  or else prevent- Chinese from   coming  in altogether.   Mr. Mclnnes challenged'  the division  and  his amendment was'  rejected~rby a vote of 21 to o'3.  talicukil to iho Mail.)

It now iool.s as if tin- work o: prospectors and miners will have, to bo
carried 'on , without :iuy< government
assistance toward i cad building this
year though favored with an" curly
open season' and indications of a busy
summer are apparent on all sides..     On
W^cdnesdity, the. lieutenant-governor
dissolved the house, without any appropriations having -been made, the
date or' niwt meeting boir'g set for
-J uly oili. Allowing a to'up'e weeks
from date of the house convening in
which to have the .estimates brought
down and passed, assuming that one
party will have a working majority,
��� with a further allowance for doing the
work will find the summer practie.illy
wasted in districts which require ttails
in order to get supplies in. This is a
deplorable slate of affairs' btought on
by the political 'situation and one
which will be a great,drawback to the
do.elo'oinent of the whole countrv.
v With   the   approaching elections so
near at hand   it is  the duty  of   every
ipialiiicu voter to sco that his name is
enrolled on   the voters' list   which will
only' be   open   until - the   23rd   insfe.
Considerable interest  is already being
taken in election   affairs and when the
time   arrives   for   ballots   to  be cast
everyone   should   be   iu   a  position to
take    advantage   of   the   opportunity
-ufrbrded    them   of   having a say as to
who'will   lepre-sout   us  in  the. legislative assembly.      ILetnember the list is
only open for a few days longer.
"What is to be done towards the
celebration of the Queen's birthday in
Revelstoke is a question which should
be settled at an early date in order to
make the sports a success if any are to
bo held. Outsiders are already making inquiries and if any .outside com-
petition is expected the matter should
be attended to at once.

.statement, unfounded though it was,
litis been reiterated in the present debate by Mr. Poster who declared that
till the reduction amounted to .was a
little more than a half of one per cent,
and yet we find the Canadian Manu-

against the disturbance and injury to
Canadianinteivsts which they mil ici-

that, is a,family failing with tory' criticism ot the government just now.
Sir Charles Tupper appears to be having lots of fun in   keeping-his, motley
crew in line.    It must be decidedly embarrassing to the opposition   leader to
'hay,e a prominent supporter like  Hon.
G. A. Kantel, a member of thelasl conservative government in Quebec' talking like   this   on   a  'public   platform:
Thanks to Mr. Laurier,   Canada is   today a   colony   governed .by Downing
street.'   ].Ve are1 cai ried  away ' by  the
current of imperialism, and, -not  satisfied with that, the liberals  have, abandoned Ihe great principle of protection
which has so powerfully contributed to
make Canada a country.    Under' the
regime'of uhe/Macdonalds, (he Langc-
vins, the Cbapleaus, .arid  other distinguished   leaders   of   the   conservative
party, we   taxed' England   to   form   a
country aucl establish national  industries here.   Those  statesmen   regarded
the   interest   of   Canada    before    the
great English manufacturer;.   To-day.
wc furnish soldiers, we have abolished'
protection, now Imperialism has  come
upon us."   ' - ,
This outspoken declara'.iou however,
is mild compared to the attack  of  La
Presse, the  leading French-Conservative   paper   of   the   Dominion, 'which
after calling attention to the   "crusade
of   the   most  aggressive   character in
favorof imperialtJ-ni." which it declares
the opposition'leader has been engaged
in for the past six months for the benefit of the English  speaking portion of
the community, continues: " To every
man  of sense it is evident  that this
strenuous  zeal, this sudden meUtmor-

i THE KOOTENAY MAIL.  * I'  UlfDl  A-Storyof a Girl, ������, Man and,  a Great.Conflagration.  ' (Continued.)  ' ��������� ,  ������������������it's got a powerful 'hold," said she,  "and must ha' bin burnin long afore Joan  roused the men. . Lor', Joan, girl, 'twas a  providence as ye had a wakeful 'night.  SVhere's Will Lnrkins, I -wonder V llc'Ii  bo out with the others, surely, lie's ever  first at a lire." '  Joan wondered also. She had not seen  liim when tho men gathered from all  uromid.  "How come the scrub' alight?" asked  another. "One 'ud way as 'twas done o'  purpose, for doughty as 'tis, tho furze  dou't set itself alight.''  "Iiim as done ,it knew what ah was  about,   settin   of   it   afire   so   near   ilto  houses. Ah reckoned as suspicion ,might  .   fall on them as lived in 'em."  This   was     a .daring twhisper   to   get  abroad,' but ono  of'greater import still  was that which mentioned the name of a  , tipsy old charcoal burner who had been  working in the.pine'woods for the last  three   weeks,   during  which   time   small  fires,   soon   localized,   had  given   rise  to  several   short   lived   excitements   in   the  , neighborhood.    How tho 'present 'fire had  ' originated,   however,  was  of  minor' importance just then.   The one thing .to bo  done was to limit-its extent and to' extinguish it as speedily as possible.   Judging by appearances, this seemed unlikely  to   happen,   for  the gentle  breeze  grew  and grew till it was ruffled into a small  gale and sent the flames.Hying before it  irra >rirad career.    Thick volumes of gray  ' smoke .began  to  ascend   from  the other  side of the hill, hanging in' tho morning  air above the swiftly; coursing lower cur-  Tents like heavy clouds.    Moreover, these  smoke   columns   appeared   to   rise   from  1 various   points.1' _ This, .was ' a   startling  sign, 'and , the   watching 'women   understood its significance.   Joan 'iVcst was a  watcher no longer. Flying home, she roused every available(iman and saw them off  in   a   strong   brigade   for  action   at   the  front.   Then, throwing the care of bulter  making aside, she Shortened  her ski.vts,  tied on a 'sunbonnet.nnd followed in rJie  wake.  . The attraction, of a firo is irresistible.  If it is a grand and terrible sight in the  crowded streets of a great cifcj-. it is.,far  more grand and terrible when the fuel to  be consumed consists of acres upon acres  of .vine ivo'iM.    it is beautiful, ton. with  h wild" and awful beauty difficult ro .describe. ' '��������� l , ,  t A. wild sight it was that greeted tlie  ' eyes of many onlookers as the" sum iMt>p  upon a clear and yellow sky with ti.'-.'  proviso of another day of brazen hear.  From .'three distinct points ascended  dense columns."ot! smoke already .lurid  with llamc. Where rer the case turned  there destruction was advancing with  giant stride?.' The hillside was noy.'  swept bare, but the fire, having reached  a denser grn?,-tli, crept insidiously on. <"le-  fying all efforts' to extinguish" it. The  Haines had already leaped over, the road  which divided the hillside from the dark  pine wotyls. The tali trees were Lu the'  grip of tho fiery foe, their branches", swaying and writhing as the hungry Haines  leaped and curled around and up them in  a deadly embrace, tossing forkeii red  tongues high into the air. It was pitiful,  cruel. All green things seemed lo cringe  and shiver- and cry, us if endued with  sentient life. Oak scrub and holly bushes,  juniper aud furze, bracken aud heather���������  all wont, to feed the roaring, fiery furnace   and   were reduced   to   crumbling  'her, ho might bid her roughly to (;o back,  but she would chance that. She must  follow. i '   '  Xof far from him the girl distinguished  another form which she .thought she  , knew���������that ��������� of the' disreputable charcoal  burner, and he seemed to be approaching  Will. That he bore her lover a grudge -  Joan knew, for he had been caught  poaching on several occasions, and the  gamekeeper had threatened to "have him  up." Above the roaring of the fire came  the sound of their voices in hot dispute,  and Joan hurried over the smoking soil.  Neither of the men. had yet perceived  her. for 'their faces were to the opposite  ;oo PACIFIC 1IHE  ope.   fiiuideniy  she  saw  and   heavy  ��������� the older man  blow  with  the  slick  he carried right over  Will's  It came with such crushim; force  aim  a  quick'  thick  hand  l? i.'i I  to ,!���������  at ul  . g'er.  the hand-it --true!,  was eom-vai'.ied  ���������op tlie bnr.::!i.'

'J'lie blackened  smoked.   So  hot was it that the gentlest breath of air  . "funned it to fresh flame. The odor of  burning pines aud peat pervaded the atmosphere. The heavens became hidden  ' by the'thick pall which hung overhead,  while beyond and on every side .destruction raged. Still, men battled ' with it  bravely. Exhausted often with tho immense exertion and fearful boat, they  threw themselves down at full length to  rest for a moment and to regain fresh  nerve for the struggle.  Joan Wo^t and one or two other wn-'  men worked in the tear, heating out such  btrngidrng fires jik threatened to revive  ,'their energy, but ntill, as (lie morning  wore on, 'lie outlook appeared as hopeless as ever, fur there, where a vista of  treeless common opened to the view, dipping down into one of the many lovely  glades whii-li iiuersci'li-d .tho woods,  there, too, all was lire and .smoke rolling  down like a torrent of molten metal and  up again upon the other side, where il  encountered other ruddy currents tearing downward, so that fiery waves intermingled, as it were, and sent up fierce  showers of sparks and columns of Uame  into the face of tho day. It was an inferno.  Alas, how strange a day! A day of  doom and death for myriads of helpless  living creatures; birds of the air and four  fooled creatures alike overtaken by a  cruel fate. In llmt glade the fiery* forces  .seemed to have concent rated. Down in  its murky depths it was possible to distinguish several ot the figures, looking  like the genii "f the fire, as they moved  . hither and thither in the very midst.  Among them Joan thought she descried  the well known form of Will Ijarkius,  and so sure did she soon become of tho  identity of that sturdy lisure, swaying a  mighty bough in his strong arms as ho  bout and beat in Iho obstinate flames,  that she was impelled to'descend and follow.

But  a look into her'tender eyes, streaming_  with tear.-:, and the wall of separation  between them crumbled lo nothing.  , The charcoal burner cast, a curious  glance at the pair and then, with a muttered curse, slunk 'off and disappeared.'  among the smoking trees. '  "Jlow   come <you   here, - Joan?"   asked  Will. ' '' ,       '  , "Why, I've been.,beating out'the fire  along, of the rest most' ever since o this  nTorning," she replied, between laughter  and tears. ,������  '��������� They looked at each other. ' He was  black, hot, grimy, nor had her pretty face  .escaped, nevoi-'flieless their lips met in a  close, kiss. They, had owed each other  that kiss for a fortnight at the least.  '"I've been''a' brute to you, Joan," confessed the man.  "I've been a fool, 1 know," admitted  the girl. ,' ���������     ' c  ,   "Life ain't long enough for quarrels,,"  said lie.        v <������������������  ' "We've  lost a .fortnight's happiness,"  she replied.' , ' ,i  'Tib have lo go home," said Will'presently, with, a weary sighl "I can't beat  no,.niore. I believe my thumb is broke."  , "Oh, poor Will!" cried Joan, taking the  maimed hand in both her own. "Come,  mother will bind it up."  They'turned* their back-on'the fire and  left it to lake its course.  "There's fuel  beyond there in plenty,  but 'twill Burn itself out in. time," said  Will; nodding' backward in tlie direction  from which'they had come.    And  so it.  did.    By Sunday the flames wore all extinguished,, and  a heaven sent rain  fell  gently,"cooling the hoalcil, blackened soil.  Will and Joan walked to church together,'  choosing the road which overlooked the  devastated woods.    How pitiful'a sight!  Ilei'c .and   there  the   embers  still   sent  forth little puffs of smoke;    Naught that  had boon green remained, except in'small,  eccentric patches.  The lofty pines reared  their  grim   heads,   with  cliarred   trunks  and scorched branches.    Silence reigned  everywhere round them.    There was no  song of  bird,  not a chirp or twitter in  this region of widespread desolation.  ���������.   And  yet  the  very  next,spring would  see flic- fonder shoots of green picking up  through the''dead litter, life renewing'itself and covering the bare ground, green  fronds erect like so many fairy crozicrs  and many colored mosses hiding all'this  uusightliness .beneath   a ' lovely   mantle.

The public, works committee was in

the estimates for city improvements.
The meeting broke up at 2 o'clock next
been asked to give of their own money
to this object tin- abo.e view of tlie
matter may have recommeiid-'d itself
to them, but, as the gentlemen were
disposing of other people's, funds they
naturally acted its a patriotic aud
liberal manner. Th" two council-men
who voted against the grant, cei tainly
deserve credit ior possessing a true
conception -of then- duties as guardians of the toiling public's interests.
. f notice further that tivse same gentlemen have ''after a long wrangle"
been defeated in their motion that the
ratepayer's be appealed lo for an expression of their opinion re further,
expenditure upon liie ball.,
Now. sir, consich ring the unbusinesslike   methods   that 'have mark".-! the
management of   that undertaking.    1
contend that   Messrs Abr.-ihamsou and
Peterson were  again   in the right and
beg to say   here, as  one   who, in Common with tlie rest of the working class
litis Io pay  the  piper  for all this, that
when any two council men demand an
appeal  lo  the .ratepayers  demand ;m
appeal to the ratep.avers on a fitianeial
question, it should be tlie custom to at
once make   that   appeal  and  have no
"council voting about/ it.     Councilmen
Abrahatnsou and .Peterson represent a
section of  the  Revels-toko community
and.in Ihe  interests; of  that section f
, pro testa gain st I heir representations being bullied or gagged aud rough ridden
over in this manner.
,' Ratepayers , should   see   to   if?  that
these  gentlemen  are   upheld   in their
endeavors to effect a   civic administration . that'ds   ool, run in,the spi-oial interests' of  the C. P. 11.'', noi favors one
class a'nd district ,of .Revelstoke at Ihe
expense   and' to   the     detriment     of
another."   ���
