Gone  over   to  the  Turneritus it. trios to lure  others with  it hy   insincere   and   fraudulent arguments.      Angry     tit ' exposure     and  smothered in its own sophistical smoke,  it  coughs   contumely, and   frantically  fulminates   against   candid   criticism.  Lost Indecency, it this week continues  unrestrained   in   its. charlatan   career  with phari.saieal prolixity.   With many  words and much falsity it tries to cover  its contemptible change and conceal its  contortion.  , The dreadful bogev'of Liberal ascen-  dency is purely its own creation, form-''  ed that excuse may be,offered for its  position iind, shelter found for its  coward self aiid - masters.

'  NOTE THE DIFFERENCE  In Treatment Of Two Towns Not Far  " Apart.  _ How differently towns are treated by  the Mongolian ministry, al Victoria;  what discrimination they show. Contrast the result of the appeals of tire  press and people here for protection of  the river bank, with the conditions at  Golden hist week. An ice jam in the  Kicking Horse caused the town to. be  flooded and, ;ts itgave no sign of breaking, aid was asked from the, government. The Gold Commissioner said  he had no money but he would wire the  government. .Hon. Col. Baker replied:  "Take any steps you may deem advisable."  A year or more ago the Gold Commissioner here pointed out the condition of local affairs, to I he government,  as follows: ,  '.'I have again to call attention to the,  serious damage being done'to thelown-'  site above and   below < the  protection  work, hy the  erosion   of  the   bank by'  the Columbia river-. ,  "Opposite I lie schoolhouse the government road is not 12 feet fioin the  edtfe of the river- hank, and- next year  will see the road taken out altogether,  necessitating the building of a new  road about one mile in length, behind  the schoolhouse.  "Protection works are absolutely necessary below the existing work if this  mad is to be preserved, independently  of the necessity of protecting the  schoolhouse, which, at the- rale the  bank is going, will require to be removed in less than two, yeais."  ��������� No attention was paid to these warnings; no message ordei ing steps taken  as , deemed advisable. Keep', the job  till election time and iniike a show of  doing something then. Let the bank'  slip-and'slipj says Hon. Mr. Turner',  till I get good and ready.

As one of Mr.  Si'irihn's supporters in the House, and  one who was til iln- late convention  continuously while it sal, I felt in every  way sal isfieil vvilh the convention's  doings ; and (he pint form adopted at  Ih.' convention is i,i itself all the proof  any sane mail should require to show  him that there should la- no conflict  of Dominion parlies, in Provincial  matters. It is practically ihe same as  the platform issued by Mr. Semlin a  shod time before, only a Mule nunc  elaborated. ' If Liberals and Conservatives can unite on such a coiutiion  ground as that laid down in Mr.  ���������Semlin's manifesto, il siuely would be  folly tn drive one section out of the  ranks because its members chose to see  Dominion matteis in a difrVient light  from the rest. I hope that we shall  hear very little inure of such  propositions, but, that all who,love the  good name of our province will unite,  to clear it of the crowd thai have so  ong mis-ma..aged its affairs. ���������  Yours t. uly.

Barring the appointment  of Mr. Vickers as a local man the Mail  thinks it more than  likely that'P.  G.   -  Fauquieristhe next Gold Commissioner  for   Noi'th ' Kootenay.    He-is in   this''  riding, in the north section ot it,  and  'has seen'several years of service.   He  is a Tory of the Tories, and a good government,   supporter.   , He   is   an   old ',  parliamentary hand and accustomed to  politics,   'He has a large'fund  of, com-    ,  moil sense and is no fanatic or crank.,  Hii is familiar with the customs of .tue  country, and  the  details  of - the ��������� pi-pi , '  vincial service.    He is ambitious,   too, "  and will pull every strihg'he can to get--  the   job.      A's   said  before,--with   the"  exception of W. H. Vickers,,he is the  most likely- to secure the appointment,  or the Mail is mistaken greatly. .   ,  It is not the place of any paper to  express undue interest in the appointment to'such a post of any individual��������� -  nor will the Mail. It believes in  letting the government make its own  choice reserving its. freedom to criticise  if the appointment is not in the'  interests of the.district. The' people  here want rro aged invalid with a disordered liver, no "tender-foot"Victorian  fop, broken down business man or C,  P. R.' official. If the Mail dares ,  express any opinion at all, it would ask  the government to recognize the merits  of its present officers and make a  deserved    promotion    contingent    on  efficiency, not on political pull,   *   Makes the Job Worse. ,       >  The B. C-Mining Journal,, of Ash-  croft, has corrected the Mail in its  reference to the Kamloops-Bridge  Creek road. It sayA "the Mail lias  taken the report of the Kamloops  party for distance. It is not 57, miles  but about, 125 miles from Kamloops to  Bridge Creek over the proposed route.  The distance, from Ashcroft to Bridge.  Creek is SoAniles over one of the finest  waggon roads in the province."  In Rossland By April. '  Air. R. Mnrpole, superintendent of the  Pacific division, Canadian Pacific Railway, has been in Rossland since Thursday,  and  in   icply   to  some questions  from a   Times representative  he said  work on the branch line  from   Rnhson    -  to Rossland would be pushed,  and  according   to   present   calculations    the  road would be in   running order sointt  time   in   April.

Revelstoke, B.C.
REVELSTOKI-:, DHO. 11,  1S.17:
Hox. Mit. TuJtxmi has ,-tt last con
.sented'to icply to the very general
.chorus of condemnation raised at see-
iii" liis mime on a somewhat speculative
prospectus. The London press has
been imposed upon by parties anxious
to defeat his government. What
egotism! 'Fancy the ."Thunderer"
when it enunciates the principle (so
well known in England) that,
prominent ministe.s should not allow
their names' appear on prospectuses,
being imposed .upon for the puipo'se of
���upsetting tlie Turner pigmies. ,,    i
���. *.-	
No time, should be lost in getting all
the facts and figures in support of the
request for a special bill, 'in .aid of
jiavigation on the Columbia above
���.Revelstoke, in the ineinbeis hands he-
foie he leaves for Ottawa. The opening of the river north of .us is an
urgent subject and need not, wait for
incorporation to be taken up. There
--is plenty of material extant from
.which to form a strong case for> aid
and if'we do n^Tt put it, in shape before
���the Ottawii session begins the loss and
the fault will be all our,own.
The Mail struck   the  right keynote
in   demanding   that   Yale-Cariboo   be
given   another   federal    representative
��� . . '
\vithout delay.     The pres'eut conditions
are as old its our entrance to coirfoder.i-
.tion and utterly ignore progress. It is'
..too long to wait for the decennial census and delay imposes injustice on the
district. �� We hope that the JVC.
mouthers and senators will take up,the
.matter at Ottawa next session and so
make their voices heard as to get additional representation. To the already numerous1 endorsements of our
.views may now be added the following
fioin the Nelson Tribune and Kamloops sister, Miss Oai-lyon. and ' p,i--ed away
r,      .  ', ;it. o.MO Sunday   rnoininrx    His  funeral
mallei.    But  suppose   everybody said
that ; what a fine thing it would he'for
the uiisci-upnloii-.   graspers of the reins
of power.     Somebody   must,   in   the
present stage of human progi ev, guide,
rule,   direct; when   a   people   become
ruleless of their   voting   privileges the
guiding   will   lie  done   by selfish men,
Ihe ruling hy tyrants, and   the   directing   by   persons   who    have    dedicated
themselves to the advancement, further glory and  aggrandisement  uf Xu/n-
ber One.    Every   man   who   has   the
right     to   vote   owes     it , to   himself,
to     his    'neighbor, ' to    the   country,
to take  pains to   see   that   his   name
is    safely    upon    , the     register;    and
when the time conies lo use   thai   vote
lo do so like a   man,   giving   it   lo   the
side   he    considers    best    desei vvs    it.
Therefore, see to  il,   voteis,'  that  you
gel your rights and  have  your  names
registered; (here will be need for every
one of those voles ere long, for there is
warm'work ahead;    In   regard   to   the
provincial  govei innent, we  might, appropriately employ  the  figure of seamanship in discussing- il, as it seems to
bea   "trade  wind"   that   is   going   to
strike the province very  soon.'  When
the favoring gale fills our sails audi Unship begins to move il will require   the
best of   seamanship   to   enable   her   lo
travel as'she should.    The voters must,
signify   whether   they    consider    the
Turner   government   political   master
mariners who can , he  trusted  find   retained,    or   whether  they  are   incompetent land-lubbers, unable to do  anything'pert ii in ing (("political naviga(ion
but box   tho  compass  of .self-interest,'
and who  should' be  paid  off   and   replaced at the first  port.'   We  contend'
they ilire   Ihe   latter,   and   we   refer   to
theii log, which   shows  a  long  iist  of
collisions,   groundings,   ship    on    her'
beam   ends   through   lubber  steering,
shoal wafer too  often,   taking  wrong
channel, repeatedly,   crew   in   mutiny
against contradictory"oidcrs   look-out
men asleep on duly, ii regular watches,
lying-to   iir, fair   winds   and     aimless
beating    up,  to    windward     in,   foul
weather.      These    ofiiccrs    uiiist     be
cashiered as soon its possible, for their
certificates are hovc-down   and   shown
to be"spurious  documents.   The  work
of   relegating  them   to   the  safety  of
useful obscurity and   re-arranging  the
whole crew lies with   the owners���the
October show that fiade is rapidly going ahead. Exports.-snow an increase
of $3,000,000; imports of $770,000; and
duty of $10,000 over- the, same month
l.-ist year. The Vancouver returns will
bring the increase of duty up-to $142,-
(K)0at least. Owing to the Yukon trade,
the Vancouver returns ought to be
large. Expoi ts under the head of agi i-
culfural products have more than
doubled during the four monihs, while
there is an increase over $5,000,000 in
the animals and their pioriuci*; and a
very large"increase in.the, products of
mines. Fisheries alone show a decrease.
