Another w.iy to look at this uppoinl,-  jiiieiiL is thai of political principle,  soeond only to lhe other. When a gov-'  ermiioiit," us in, tii is ease, neglects to  consult its loyal and tried supporters,  people' who have hoi pod tin in'" loyully  in* the past, for others, till, recently enemies, it is a confession of lament-  uble weakness and political degradation.  'They think to win t he enemy over (llu*  Herald and i(s peanut gang havo gone)  wiLb a conciliatory appointment, and  yet keep iu line tlie faithful old guard.  It is a .shameless I rick, based solely'on  the low idea that their old .supporters  in ibis pari nf the riding arc* spiritless  and low.

A* nice icvvaid lhis afler  hisinnny government, voles on critical  occasions. They ignored business men's  and political supporter's messages and  appointed,, this man against their  advice. If isa most pitiable example  of piilil ical ha-,enos's and the Mail has  no hesilal ion in saying thul if the appointment was mil lo be made from  the ranks of I hi* sei yiei* (which it  should) il should be made with the approval of political friends who are best  able to ail vise on such a matter.

Litei'viewed by  the Mail, ho said payments on property wore yen*,fair indeed, und he vvould  try und-give those vvho had bought, every o p| ior I unit y to meet payments without extra burden of interest, if possible.  He wiis much, pleased to see the steady  growth of lhe place aiid expressed the  opinion that our stores, hotels and'  butcher shops would fnvoiably compaii' with any of the.south country  towns. lie vvas greatly surprised too  to see Hie enormous script* of the work  on the Electric Light.-ind Power/plant.  Spea king about mat'lers political, Mr.  Leiidriun said he had taken note of the  opinions expressed by both papers here  and he vvas of the opinion that party  should be kepi out of provincial afFairs.  .What British Columbia wants at pres-_  cutis men, not party lines, und "we  should try to get men vvho would push  the country's resoui ces without reference to pui ly, views.  On the subject of the Gold , Commis-  sionci'.ship, Mr. Lendriun was sorry   to,  see hiyul and capable ofliceis overlooked, and saciificed to the political needs  of the.

It is time, for  u chungc?aiid with the enormous future  opening oat before this province, it  should be a complete one.

It'was (he linen cuff and the quick
thought of Hie woman who wore it
that gave its one of the piettii-sl ;md

Johann Strauss, and his wife were one

Kcboiiati, when suddenly the eonipo-er
exclaimed ��� "Mydeai, I have a waltz
in my bead. Quick! give ine a -crap of
paper oi an old envelope! i must

after much rummaging 'of .pockets it
was found that neither of them bad a
scrap of paper. 'The despair of the
wall/. King was pathetic, until a happy
thought struck' his Ft a it; she bold out
a white linen culr, and in two minutes
that cuff was manuscript,! Its mate
followed; still the inspiration vvus incomplete. Strauss vvas frantic ami
vvas about to dash for homo with the
third pai-t of tbo Wiilfz ringing in his

Interference  ���������Employees Must Rest���������Intercolonial to Make Fastest Riming,  Time���������Imrovements for Travel.  The'llon. Mr. Blair seems lo know  what be is doing in the extension of  . the Intercolonial Railway to Montreal.  A step in the new policy ,is the introduction of powerful locomotives capable of hauling twelve Pullman couches,  ' two baggage ancl one express car up  steepest grade on tbe road, at the rale  of f,0 miles an hour, or it vvill run up  and down the , medium grades at the  rate, of 70 miles an honr. One of these  engines (No. 1CS) has ahoady been pio-  enred. It is a double compound engine,  Vaudrain pattern,'mounted with a boiler 00 inches ih diameter, -1 feet long,  with a grated surface of 20 feel. It is  what is known as "a, 10-w heeler, having,  a ti uck of i whorls and 0 Ily wheels, 0  feet across.  Mr. Adolph Davis,, late Superiiilen-'  dent, of the N. Shore Railway, is made  consulting'engineer of Government,  railways, and he is having a free hand.  J. IB. Lambkin, for the past 13 years  with theC. P,l K., litis been appointed  district passenger agent with head-  quart eis at Montreal.  ., The Fort Steele Prospector reports.  Ilia.. M. J. Hiiney bus resigned as miin-  uger of construction on the Crow's  Nest road because he bus been culled to  account hy the Dominion Government  for the shameful way in'which the men  were being treated.'  Tho C. P. U. have issued a circular to  their employees making it necessary  for trainmen and engineers to take sufficient rest at divisional points. Thoy  niust not start out from the, divisional  point to which they belong unlos thoy  are perfectly fresh und fit lo make the  round without rest, if necessary ; but  in no case must thoy leave any divisional point unless prepared for at least  12 hours service. Itis high time, this  step wus taken in view of the recent  accidents. ' *   ,  Mr. Maxwell, an architect, from Montreal, vvill go over the hotels, of tin: C.  P. It. coinpanv along the line���������ut Gla-  ' cier, North Bend and Field, with a view-  to making plans tor the extension of  these resorts'to accommodate the. increasing tourist traffic, livery conffort  required by tbe tniv oiler,will be looked  after and special amiiigeuients maih  for all visitors to enjoy'the scenery. ,,  Not In Home Politics.  At tha Toronto University banquet  held last Friday, Hon.Edwaod Blake  was again, tho principal speaker, lie  referred to the misapprehensions caused by his recent speech at Slrathroy  and said he meant with, regard to returning to Canada only that he looked  forward to returning there to live, lie  would not desert the cause,he bad identified himself vvith until he could do so  without,injuring il.  Northport Smelter.  L. V. Williams, the Secretary of tin*  Iu: lloi company, says thut tin: smeller  is now under roof, and is practically  finished vvith the exception of the  eal-  o *  ciniiig.furnuces. It vvill start up some  time before the present contract with  the Trail smelter will have been completed, and the Le Roi will trb.it all Jts  ores at the Northport smelter.  The Nelson Smelter.  Tho lead furnace of the Hull Mines  smelter is nearly completed and probably vvill l.e blown in shortly after Jan.  loth. Some of the lead ores are now  being lousted and made ready for the  furnace. The company is novv endeavoring to make contracts for .t steady  supply of b'.id ores and if this has not  been done by the time the furnace is  blown in, only a shoitrun vvill be made  vvith the ore now iu bund.  What is Electricity ?  The American Electrician condenses  from the London Engineering's loview  of Pi of. Trowbridge's new hook,"What  is Electricity ?" us follows : 'The wrilei  fays that in spite of the all-round progress made during the last t liirt y years  we know no more about the essential  nature of electricity lhan did IJenja-  miii Franklin 150 yeais ago. 'The sov-  oial explanations ofVerod, based upon  the olher, or ether and mailer associated, merely substitute one unknown  for another. "After all, what is ui.-il-  ter? What is llio othei"? How is mailer associated with the'othor?" To such  fundamental questions wo can return  no ol liei" answer than the now famous  ignoramus. They make, or fend to  make, us painfully conscious of the infinitude of our nescience. The writer  of lhe review adds that Loid Kelvin  must have brooded over these provoking unknowns when hi! vvioto to hiin  in I.SD2, "Tell me what, electricity is,  and v'l| |,.|1 you all the rest." This inability fo delect elect i icily ill its primordial form need, liowovei. exert no  (list I ii.,| |'ul, no depi cssiug effei Is (ill I be  mind o'i the student of physical science.

If he feels himself morosely air'ected bv the agnosticism. let  him recall the astronomical phenomena which are c-alcul.it'-d accurately  years in advance without any knowledge whatever ol'the nature of gravitation; oriel him'think of that masterly bit of analysis which .led to the  discovery of argon withoutuny knowledge on the part of Lord Ruyleigh nr  Prof. Rums.iy, of what chemical atiin-  ity is.

Notes of the Yukon.  * i tr ���������   '  William Ogilvie, the celebrated surveyor, returned to Ottawa Tuesday,  after an absence of two year-., lie  says that if 100,000 people' go lo Klon-  dyke next spring S'.j per cent'.���������iin'd that  is giving it a wide margin���������will have  to t'liiiii! out.

From   there  river boats will run to Glonora, 10 miles  up Telegraph creek. It, is the intent ion  to run a   narrow  guage  railway   from  Glonora   to Tesliu  lako, but as it will  take several mouths to build a railway  130  miles  in'length,' lhis purG'- of  the  route will not 'ho  built  until  later   in  the summer,       '    *  Christmas Bells.

The C.P.R. and Corbin vs.,Keinze and  Great Northern. *  J. L. G. AbbDtt, who is the local  solicitor for the C.P.R., is just now  securing the right-of way for that company into Rossland. iin far he. has  had no trouble,'as the owners of claims  ,vvhieh carry the surface rights'vvith  them hiive chum fully donated the company enoiigli0,'laud fur a right-of way.  It is rumored tli.it. an arrangement  has been enteicd into ' vvith D. C.  Corbin   by 'Which    the,   C.P.R.   is   to  *���������' o  have the _i ighl-of-vvuy over the grant  of the Red' Mountain railway. Tl, was  also stuted that tlio iclutiuiis between  the Corbin line and the C.P.R. uro of  tlie. friendliest character, possible..It is  evidently llie'intention of the. C.P.R.,  when its connection with' Rossland is  completed, to run a daily train into  Spokane over lhe trucks of the Red  Mountain railway and lhe Spokane it  Northern in much the sumo as it runs  u lruin into and out of Scuttle daily  over the Scuttle it International rail  way. The object cf this; says tho  Rossland Miner, -is to compete to  greater advantage with tlie Grout  Noitlicru and Noitlie.ru Pacific railways, that have, for u long Lime boon  soi iously cul ting into the business of  .the C.P.R,. by reason of the great ei expedition with which they handle tiie  business, and the deep cms that havo  sometimes,been made by'those lines iu  ll*,e freight rates.  House Decorating Ideas.  Don't put borders on carpets ��������� for'  small rooms. .,  Don't hang chandeliers or lamps in  lo vv-ceiled rooms.  Don't buy what suits the fancy, regardless ui' their combined effects.    -  Don't select anything because it is  fashionable, but because it i.s good.  Don't have any apparent, much less  any regular, arrangement of furniture.  Don't believe for a moment thut ox-  pensiveness is essential to beautiful  effects.  .
