The   particulars of the case of VVest  Huron and  Brockville,     arc  pretty     thoroughly  understood in the country.   There was  the unexplained delay on   the .part'of  the opposition last year to bring to the  attention of   the house certain  information which appeared to indicate extensive fraud until months after Mien,  information came'into their possesion;  an   immediate "acquiescence   by    tlie  ,government 'in ' the   lequest _foi5 an  inquiry before the parliamentary committee, of elections and pi ivileges, and  the failure of the opposition to produce  any evidence  in  support of the allegations,   although^    the     government  permitted the expenditure of thousands  or dollars to biing witnesses,before the  committee.     Then   the    government  agreed to continue   the   inquiry   this  session   providing any new  evidence  transpired'in  the  meantime,  but the  'opposition demanded that such inquiry'  continue   this 'session   although    the  Htipulated new evidence was not furthcoming, or at least.no^evidence  that  would'have b*en   given   a 'moment's  consideration'ui'any court of justice.  The'government however refused to  allow a further expenditure of public  monies, in the face of the inability of"  the opposition to show any reasonable  -probability of tangible results   being  ���������secureth/andthat refusal .\va* .endorsed  by two-thirds of the house/of. cowmions,  and it may be safely added _h,\\.a-\ like  proportion' of the electorate.  -   Haying thus deoliued to be dragooned into ft farcical Investigation Jiefor'e  a partisan  ti'ibim.il,  which <c-ouM   not  possibly have  .uiomplisbed   anything  (Wini'le, the premier auuoimced   that,  so far fiom lieiiig averse, to a thorough  investigation, ibegovi'inmeut was-pre-  pared to older a judicial inquiry of the  fullest character into the circumstances  not only ot West,.  Huron   and   Brockville, but of any and all other elections  since JSW5.    "We must have," said  the  'Prime  Minister,   "at  an   early   date,  immediately, a' tiibunal  composed  of  Lhe best judges,  of the  land   so  as to  have  (he   fullest,   the  nio^L  complete,  the most searching inquiry iutoall that  weJviiow,.intt) all that has come to the  attention of  the   house,   of (he  press,  and of the country, and into what also  hat not yet come  to  the attention   of  the public, to ferret out  that system,  to expose it'a'nd to eradicate it forever  ������������������from this land of ours.    I said last year  and I have no   reason   to   repent   the  words  'that     the    sanctity' of    the  ballot must he maintained at all  hazards, and'that the will of ihu people   is  tube expiessed   by   lhe' ballot as  the  people have it in their1 own   minds.    I  do not want, for one, to succeed by any  other method than  this.    If  thetimec  comes when this government has  not  the support of .the electorate given   liy  reason of what   is   in' the.   heart   and  mind of the electorate, I  do- not want  In remain in  the government of  tliis.  country.    Wo  have not changed  our  View that we should have, the sanctity  of the ballot preserved,  as  I   said  last  year, nl all coses and at all hazards."  British Flag Now  Flies Over Pretoria.

'The statements made in the lastissue  .of the Herald that it was a combination  of the heads of the Martin parly, myself and government officials that prevailed upon JMr.-McItao to come out as  a candidate is absolutely untrue. No  meeting of any such character ever  took place-and no one knows that fact  belter than the disquieted gang who  control that unscrupulous apology for  a newspaper.

Two  years-  and a half ago ,Archdcacori  Peiitreath  met the three clergy in   the.  Kootenay  to   confer   with   them   as   to   church  needs and  prospects.

In the new diocese   there   are  seventeen   clergy,   all   of   whom'^jfi^  present in   the city  but   one.   .Today  the oHicers  will   be   elected   and   the  executive   committee    appointed.

The watch of the engineer of the spe-  , cinl   when   fcauid   was  still   running  and  was four minutes'behind.' .It was to this  error   of   his   timepiece   Mint" the   tragic  death  of himself and  his" three compan-  " ions was due.  In dtvlighr  it ii (he. habit of"vthc ongi-  >   noer to follow with the1 eye Ilie glislcniiig  track of rails over widen he must travel.  'Should   a   rail   ho   misplaced,   it  'would  break this line of light and  betray itself  to the watchful man in time'lo stop and  save  his   train.    This  particular   wreck,  however,   resulted   from   that   curse  anil  dread of all railroad runners���������the washout.    The culvert which caused.it was a-  -    short one. its width being hardly greater  than lhe combined length of engine and  tender.    The  masonry had  been carried  away;   but,   the    fishplates    and    spikes  holding  linn,   the rails still   crossed   the  gully.    This   held   ilio  rail' line  of   light  true   and   in   eniiserpietico   the   engineer  ���������, JVas well up to the danger before he realized it.     He Was able lo stop (lie (rain,  hut to do so had to go ililo'tho ditch hini-  Kelf. although fortunately he did not lose  his life.  lie was washed out of his cab window  by the flood.     His juniper catching over  a   slfine.   1 he   train   newsboy   fortunately  found   him   in   time   lo   save   him   from  death by drowning.   So close a thing was  it   thai   when   the  train   came   lo  a   full  stop   the   front   wheels   of   the   forward  truck  of  ihe  baggage-car wove hanging  oyer the opening inado  by  the  washout.  . No  one   was  injured  save  the  engineer,  who escaped with a couple of broken ribs  nml a cli-located sliouidcr.    lie completely recovered,  however, and  is one of the  most li'ii-ted engineers on that particular  line lo this city.  ,   A .rather   amusing   thing-occurred   in  connection  with  this wreck.    There was  little coal   in-the  lender,   what   was   left  being in   (he  rear eiid, and   the  fireman  had gone back to shovel it forward.   The  impetus of the engine caused ii to jump  clear across, ihe gully Jin'd stick its nose  in the opposite bank.   The rear part, being  the   heavier,   dropped   Iirst,  carrying  the forward  part of the tender with   it.  causing   tender   and   engine   to   shut   up  like a jackknifc.    The Hreman was tossed  clea'j over the engine and alighted uninjured on the I'raek beyond Ihe washout.  lie was   a   lanky.   siS   I'm \   Irishman,  with   carroty   hair  and   tiie   brogue   still  strong upon  him.    li\  lolling of his ex-  ^uiieiice afterward hu tnid;  'I *?*#;  A   Stnvy  SlionvIiiR   How   H.I*   Mlousrtl  Altrorul   Tor TIu������t   ['urpofto.  The use" or the official' envelopes ot the   i"^t J'^-  .rUuitcd States by  both   I-'rein-h and  (Jor-- ' ������?*'*'i^  man spies is an "old dodge, and a great  many are stolen from the smaller consulates iii tJerniany. where the folk in charge  are rather careless about thcir'stntionory.  Some inkling of this leaked out years ago,  'ami the thing was talked about in diplomatic and newspaper circles as a good  joke.  liret  Ilarte was then in the consular  service   in   England,  ,and   naturally   he  .heard  the yarn.   It  struck him as good  literary material, and  ho  wrote n. short,  story based upon it, which was published  in one of the London Christmas annuals  ���������I   think   The   Graphic���������but''1   am   not  quho sure, in either IS!)4 or 1805.  ' "This story," continued the newspaper  man,   "was   quite   different ^roni    Mr.  Ilarte's usual   vein and  was very Cleveland amusing.  . "It purported to be the narrative of'the  American consul at a fortified city in in-'*,  ,terior Germany and opened with the'appearance at the local garrison of a very  raw recruit, wli* speedily became, the  butt of hisrconirades.  '���������This 'poor fellow, who was lhe soul of  good natured idiocy, used to'come to the-'  consulate to write letter's to his 'brother  in   America,'   and   was  allowed   to   help  himself to the oflicc stationery. 'Laler'on  ��������� he'disappeared and was supposed to have  been drowned in the river while bathing.  '  "Two years  afterward  thc,cons'ul  was  in  Paris and   while seated  hi front 4of-n  boulevard cafe was accosted by'a sinart-  young   I'Vouch   captain   in   full   uniform.  The  face of  the', soldier' was strangely  rarniliar, and  suddenly  a  light  broke in  upon the consul.- The smart .captain was  none, other than the stupid  recruit  who  had a dear brother in faraway'America.  ' "lie was a   French  spy and a matchless mimic, and the consul forgot his chagrin over  the  misused  stationery  in  his  admiration for the mau's pluck and au-  ' dacity.  "The reader is given plainly to understand that the letters written at the'  consulate never went to America/but  were addressed ton secret agenl in Paris  and passed safely through the mails,  guarded by the official insignia of Uncle  ������Viui.

To .the Electors, of, Revel-  L , '  stoke Riding:  n CiENTMiMEX,���������Having been nominated as the Liberal-Conservative canj  dictate in this riding, 1 beg to PuU  before you briefly my stand on the  most important questions now Lefore  the electorate.  I am' in' full sympathy with the  Eight-hour law for underground miners. The law has come to stay and  will not be interfered with except at  the united request of all parties uhiefly  interested in it.  It is my opinion that lhe time has  come for a. firm . stand to be made, in  ,this Province against the further  immigration of Oriental cheap labor  and any measure which the Provin  ciai. Legislature can pass to check this  growing evil will receive my support  and l-shall be in favor of the strongest  pressure being placed on the'Dominion  and Imperial^authorities lo assist,'by  the most strongest measures, this  Province; in' what is now threatening  to become a' \eritable ��������� struggle for  existence for white wurkingmen.  I am a firm believer in the principle  of government ownership of 'railways.  The provision of some effective system for the settlement of disputes-'  between capital and labor is" much  needed and any measure in'this'direc-  tion as well as any other to improve  the conditions of the laboring classes  will find me in,its favor. *���������"���������:'.:���������-  This riding requires-the establishment of a registration office at Kevel-  stoke to facilitate the conduct, of  business in the district, and the construction of a gaol is another requirement which would receive'"my attention. , i.  Tt'is my   belief   that the peculation  of   Kootenay   has . reached   a point at  which    the-   establishment  of   a high  school at such ' a central   point as Hev-  elstoke has become necessary.  ���������.The  development of   the   Big Bend  mineral   section   is   a   point   which   I  would do my utmost to furtherv ' The  completion  of   the   wagon road to the  head ot the canyon and the subsidizing  a line of "steamers   on , the upper ri\er  would form, in my opinion, legitimate  methods fur the. legislature to adopt in  i order to attain this desirable object.
