It seems to us that the tine and  only satisfactoiy solution of the  difliculty.is to he found in developing  sufficient electiic ei'eigy to supply not  onlj light,', but also motne power.  Were such power pio\ided in Veinon  it is ' altogethei likely that manufacturing establishments of various  kinds would spring up,' making the  city " a centiebfindustii.il activity,  the good effects of which would bo felt  by ill classes of the community  It is only a slioit time since two  such propositions weie laid befoie the  council, one to" get the power from  Long Lake ancl the^ othei from Sliu-  swap falls,   a., distance; of   25  miles  Both of, these' offers' were considered  to be too high and were rejected.  Would it not be_well to, again, take  the matter up and endeavor to arrive  at a satisfactory conclusion ?   ,   ' $  Biiefiy,i the last proposition wns  that of the Shuswap falls where, it is  estimated, a capacity of 2500 h. p. can  he developed "and the enoigy ' transmuted t the city*. - The promoters  i ���������''' ,.  oflered   to   supply   16 'candle power  lights foi 35 cents each per month ,on  a 20 yeais contract, prodded that not  less than 2000 lights weie continctcd  for Or, as an alternative, they ofleicii  to take���������over the' piesent plmit at a  valuation on a 20' yeais franchise,  and guarantee the miiumiim rate of  35 cents pei light of Kj^candle, powci  With* these two .propositions ,l,efoio"  them it looks to,ut asfif some tangible  way out of the piesent difficulty might  lie evolved by the eity^ council.

(  at Ottawa, one of tbe fir-st points it  should take up is the'development  'of the zinc industry, together w'th  the establishment in British Columbia of reduction ,\vork<... This  province is full of zinc oie. ,Jtis  (|ue.-itionable if there Nil counlry  on the face "of the earth so .rich in  zinc oies. ..Largo bodice* of the1--!!  ores are so( situated they could bo  easily mined. The mineral can be  treated as well here,as, in Joplin,  where such, immense wealth has  resulted from mining and treat  merit", of this mineral. Right  alongside the main line of 'the C.  P.i'lt. east of Revelstoke, in the Iiig  Jiend, in ISast Kootenay, at l'ing-  ston Creek on Arrow Lake,, in  Slocan, at Nelson, on the Kootenay  Lake, on the Coast���������in fact everywhere west of the- Rocky Mountains there are great deposits of  zinc ore awaiting \ development,  and which might be made to add  in other" H-5,000,000 to $0,000,000  to the,annual iniheral production'  of 'this province;.      , '  .  ,  iThe   proposal   of   tbe dominion  ' government to acquire the principal  telegraph ancl telephone ���������'lines   in-  'volves'their   operation __ at   cost, a  policy that   will   be  'an  immense  boon to the people. "      - a  The" Prospector' complains' the  ���������Conservatives elected the Liberal  candidate in this district. No  doubt they did. A * great part of  the strength'- of the Liberal party  comes from those broad-minded  Conservative? who admire its administration in the interest of the  country, and manvof the^ best men  of the Liberal party were formerly  Conservatives.  ,     -    WELL MICIUTISO  ' 1 c      1  ', .Gre'ni c-roviitib due and is cheerfully accorded to Senator Temple-  man for the splendid- huccess of  British Columbia in the recent  elections. ll. .is nut many years  since it was impossible to elect,a  Liberal ^nciuber -in' tho province,  but now, largely (through, the 1111  ceasing efforts and' pertinacity of  tho Senator, a solid delegation of  Liberal members goes to Ottawa.  Senator < Tcmplenian , i.s a'man ih  whom the utmost- reliance can be  placed; and i.s highly esteemed by  all classes, both on account of hit>  personal qualities and- foi bis  optimism and rigid adherence to  the principles of the party of his  choice, and few 'indeed there are  who will grudge h'ini all "tho honor  and*1 all'the eclat which ha'sjiow  crowned the cliorts of many years  faithful service lo., Liberalism m  British Columbia.'  We heartily.endorse the demand  which W." A: Galliher has made  on the dominion government for  the.creation of a portfolio of mines.  At the Provincial mining convention a resolution was proposed by  the editor of this paper urging such  a portfolio. If tbe department  were administered with as much  ability as the other departments at  Ottawa it could not fail to give an  immense stimulus to tbe mining  industry in this province.  The contrast' in   war_times between   the   Canadians    and      tbe  Russians is seen in tbe  large number; of   Russian   reservUts   fleeing  the country  rather   than   join   the  army,   200   of   them   arriving in  Halifax one day la.-t week.    When  clanger threatened the Jiriti-h Kin  pire there was no lack of volunteer?  from Canada to go to South Africa  and thou.-ands   were  disappointed  in not having  the  opportunity   to  show their   loyalty   by taking up  arm? acainct tbe Roera.

The time is  drawing near"'when the   legislature  iwill be called together for business,  and it would be well for   this   convention   to   meet   before then, as it  would   be   inconvenient   to ' do so  while the House   was   in   session.

Their   majority  is an exceedingly slender one,   and  is likelv to be still further  reduced  *v 1  as soon as the House meets.

Is it  not sufVcriii'g because of 'the kick of  enterprise on the pint of the provincial  government in failing to build roadsand  trails so that its great resources may  be developed?

GINSENG:  A Crop Worth Investigation by  the Ranchers.  The Joplin News says: The McDowell ginseng guidon, the laigest in  Aiiiciica, four miles south of this city,  is a vory busy place now.  Tho shipment of 100 pounds of dry  root to China by Captain McDowell  about a month ago at IJS12.50 per pound  has attracted considerable attention  on account of^the large pi ice. The  price of cultivated ginseng has gone  up very rapidly in the last four years.  In 1001 it Wiis $0 j.er pound, in 1002  $8, in 11)03 $10, and this year $1*2.50.  Captain McDowell gives it as hisopin-  ion'tliat first class cultivated ginseng  will bring $20 per pound in' two years.  He estimates that an acre of first class  cultivated American ginseng will yield  5,000 pounds of dry loot. At $20 per  pound, or even $12.50, the piesent  price, an acie is a fortune. Captain  McDowell's nurseries comprise about  two and one-half acies, about one-  fourth of it being live and six years  old. It i'i so simple and easy to cultivate that one man can take care of at  least tluee acres.  It is strange that more people do not  investigate ginseng cultuie. Men of  means are quietly sitting around allowing a few wilh courage and patience to reap the lich harvest.  From the seed it takes about as long  to got ii crop of ginseng as it does a  crop of apples, but the crop is surer,  the land less, the labor about one-tenth  and the profits a dozen times as much.  Capt. McDuivcll said: Every Chinaman usea Ginseng. If they should use a  dime's worth each per annum, the 450,-  OOO.OOOof them would wane $45,000,-  000 woitli. At pie-ent wo arc sending  them less than $S00,000 perannum  From this you will see how loniotc a  glutted Ginseng market ii. Moreover  the cultivation of the root is not being  extended now l.ipidly enough even to  take the place of the wild root, which  is alino-jt exterminated. The price of  Ginseng is-going up .ill the time, the  iiguies tor good wild root now 'being  ��������� ia   From Our Oivn fnrroapnndoiit.

--That the efforts of the Williams Piano
Company in bringing out the New f cale
Williams   are  appreciated, by  artistic
music lovers everywhere, is shown** by
t the numerous letters of congratulation
\they receive."        '*   ��� ,! "i '
Tbe following is an extract 'from a7*
letter from Prof. Edward Simmons1 of
Wolseley, N. W.-T. i,
" After having tried allniakes of Canadian Pianos, I have decided upon the
New Scale Williams 1'iauo as being far
superior to them all- in tone,' finish,
action and all the requirements essential'
to a first class instrument. 'The tone is
both rich and deep, with a rare singing
(Quality. The action is the most responsive I ever played upon aud the general
workmanship all through is most perfect, finish beautiful. The -New Scale
Williams Piano is the one I have chosen
for my own use, andlhave no hesitation
1 whatever in strongly recommending it
to my friends and anyone desiring a
first class instrument. , ,.
1 wish to congratulate your Company
upon   so   distinct a success in Piano
construction." '      *
