pro'ductionjfor six performances at one
of the. leading New York theatres is
reserved -by the paper,, after which the
play reverts to and becomes the sole
property of, the author. .As the idea
is to encourage amateur talent as well
.is professional, a leading dramatist lias
been retained*to put productions which
are not*quite fitted for the boards in
proper shape for acting. The dramatic merit of erich piece submitted will

The Review, published at Red Deer,

Its life was a brief one. JDisaster'must
always follow these attempts to establish little papers in towns too small to.
support them. It is. such' things as
this at Red'Deer that will teach people
that it is tho height of absurdity to
start a paper in a town of a hundred
or two population. "Printing and publishing is an industry .that cannot
tnnvo unless there is 2>lenty of earth
around J"'he roots. It would be useless
to run an iron smelter a thousand miles
away'from the mines.' It is just as
absurd "to plant a newspaper where
there are no people. The backbone of
a newspaper is its advertising," and before you can get advertising, you must
have the people.���Moostnttiii tiptsctators

Some of the Ancients.
Seven well-pi eserved mummies were
recently discovered beneath the ruins
of the clilf-dwollers' houses in Southeastern Utah. Among the collection
is a male of giant stature, two females
and two boys. They are not bodies of
the clirT dweller.-i themselves, but are
thought to be of a race that antedated
these curious people. Their h.rir is
reddish, and the skulls shaped like the
Caucasians. The bodies were covered
with a curious matting and blankets
of wool and feathers.

' ion Governments will cost a

Contracts have "been  awarded   and
work  has   commenced   in  connection
with the-estal)lisl-ment,o�� the defence
which will make the harbor o��J3squi-
malt, the British Imoerral coaling and
repair station of the jSTorth Pacific, safe
fiom the possibility of succesifiil attack by the" otrongost combined fleet
which, under any circumstances,"could
be sent to menace this western gateway of Greater  Britain.   Upwards of
200 of the Royal Engineers and l\Iarino
Artillery, and about half that number
of civilhan artisans are employed, and
their.operations ��� will probably not be
concluded for a   couple of years,   for
(he Imperial and   Canadian   Governments will spend a round million on
these operations before the first stage
of their completion  is   reached.   The
work is unclei the general direction of
Major Miiirhead, R.E., one of the most
valued and efficient experts of the war
department of Great JBritain;   he has
been here since last summer attending
to the necessary preliminary arrangements.   The plans for the fortifications
are,' however, the product of years of
consideration, and tho  most   trusted
authority of the army and navy \have'
from time totime vis'ited Esquimau in
this connection. <t���The coast territory
from Macaulay Point barracks, at the*
entrance   to   Victoria, harbor,   to,the
head of Esquimalt lagoon, a distance of
four miles or more, has been surveyed
and re-surveyed, in the effort to secure
beyond doubt the'efl'ecti ve controlUiot
only of the approaches to the Victoria
'and Esquimalt harbors, but also ot.'the"
straits of San Juan-' do Fuca as far as
tlie  entrance   to  Puget   Sound.   'The
���starting point has long been a miltyiry
reserve, and this affords opportunity
for the commencement of operations in"
the quietest manner possible, for it is
intended that the work shall be caw ied
to completion with all the secrecy characteristic of military undertakings, and
no one except the few, officers1 will;*be
permitted to remain employed in anyone certain section sufficiently longt, to
fully master its mysteries���that is if,
the all-powerful major can preventtit.i
"Fortifications" is a term calculated
to mislead the average man, for those
who, come to see the -,'forts," and look
for  towering   structures   pierced   by
many loopholes, out of which a terrible
array of ordnance will frown upon the
shipping * in the Straits, will be sadly
disappointed. * Modern "forts" are built
with no 'idea of show, and tliere will
probably be no exhibition to the public
of the result of all the time and money
to be expended in this work of .defence
until  "grim-yisaged war"' 'calls for )a
terribly earliest application of the power which it will have taxed, tlie, ingenuity of military science to store, up for
the momentous occasion. ���    ,   '
Esquinialt (pronounced Esq-why-
mrtlt) and Victoria harbors, as a glance
at the map will show, are situated at
the extreme south-east corner of Vancouver Island, and are divided by a
small rocky peninsula. This it is that
will be the heart.of the citadel, for its
natural situation*"favors the plan to be
adopted of making it practically impregnable to attack from the sea, and
likewise from the laud which, after a
short level stretch gradually slopes up
into the rugged Sooke hills and other-
coast ranges of Vancouver island," The
fortifications are projected to extend
from r Point M.icaulay all the way to
tho head of Esquimait harbor, literally
encircling the naval yards, Imperial
"dry docks, magazines, and numerous
storehouses.
The buildings, which will be all the
public will see and recognize as the
outward and visible signs of the forts,
will be very frail and unimportant
structures, intended simply for ban ack
and kindred duty during times of peace,
and in troublous times to disappear the
moment their presence becomes a menace. The real fortifications are to bo
in the bowels of the earth, from which,
should a hostile fleet ever appear in the
Straits, will rise as if by magic, the
terrible enginer of "death, designed to
hurl destruction against the enemies of
England, and literally to destroy at
sight, for the "range of'the ordnance
will in this case bo limited only by the
range of vision, bounded by the abruptly rising snowcapped peaks across the
narrow Straits. At frequent intervals
tremendous "wells" are to be excavated, and on these, mounted on the Els-
wick hydro-pneumatic disappearing
carriages ana raised with the facility
of tbe ascent of the modern "lift," the
anything of that sort a chain of parapet
forts will be extended through (he hills,
and the location of Uic*e is to be known
only to 'Major Muirhcid and his
sphynx-like attache^. In this connection no possible advantage (lthat i'her
military science of the century hasr
made feasible will be oV-erlookod. '
Extending: far out" into the straits
and protecting the entrance to both
Esquimalt and Victoria harbors, there
will be laid a network of wires, ooniiec-
ting marine mines which crtn be operated at will-from the shores so as to
effect tho destruction of any man-of-
war 'or merchantman venturesome
enough to , run the gauntlet of the
shore batteries���a remote possibility���
to escape until within tbe fateful vicinity ol the sub-marine mines.
For the protection of tbe gun-pits
above mentioned. Of course the whole
reliance is not placed in Mother Earth,
but the most elaborate preparations
are being made for the use of bombproof shelters of steel and the tougher
and more resistful nickle, besides a
limited amount of masonry, held? together by 'the most powerful cement
known, so that the mass thus formed
will be as solid and impenetrable almost as the original rock. >
Though it is the intention to maintain permanently an Imperial force of
engineers and marine �� artillery< at
Esquimalt, these will be but the nucleus
of the little army required to man the
guns in case ot trouble, arid it is part
of the understanding between the two
governments that Canada shall supply
her full quota, ofi men'as she has of
money. With this_ in view, the Victoria battalion of Garrison Artillery
has been raised to a strength of nearly
six hundred men, and that the old and
new members alike may have every
opportunity to'acquire the,-knowledge
necessary to'artillery warfare, a splendidly equipped drill-hall' has been provided and one of the best instructors of
theunsurpassedartilleryschoolsof Eastern Canada has been attachedto the battalion for service so long as he may be
required. The possibility that some
time or other they may be called upon
for such serious work as provided for
at Esquimalt has had a stimulating
effect upon  the local volunteers, and

LARDEAU MINERAL RESOURCES.
[BY.T. W. HASKINS.J '     ^
In July, 1800, I'first "visited the Lardeau country^ which at that time was,
almost unknown to the^outside work!,
as there bad been no 'prospecting done
of .anyvaccount for quartz, and those'
who had been there had only prospected for placer diggings,'with the exception of a few.jiauidlv: Charles Hoi ton,
Thomas Downs,.L. McDonald,J.T.'St<iu-
ber 'arid" one or (tv.-o other.-?, who-may
be called the pioneers of the Lardeau
district of West Kootenay, and who
are  to-day  large  mine-owners.     My
first trip in this new section was to the
north of Trout Lake,   and  was not a
success, as by some means I missed the
Great Northern ledge (although I' passed within a. short distance of it) which
was found some time after bv Messrs.
Hoi ton,   Downs,  Stauber* and   P.   M.'
Walker.   On this trip 1 found I was a
stranger in a strange land and 1 was
monarch of all I surveyed,  as  there
was   no   one   there   to    dispute  'my
rights.    On August 13 I had a rough
experience with a grizzly bear, which,
if told,  would, seem  too much like a
fish story,  so  I shall I*>ass on.   I next
prosjiected to the east of the lake, and
on Sept. 6 made my first locations; the
Maple Leaf, Beaver and. Crown Point.
In 1801, while during assessment work
on  the Maple Leaf, going a short distance from camp one day, I found the
Orphan Boy claim, which tit that time
Wris the- best in Lardeau,   but which
has since been eclipsed by some others,
notably theiSilvor'"Ciip, Black Prince,
Duncan, Copper Queen and Maud, all
of which are high-grade claims, running
into .the hundreds of ounces silver per
ton and will pay from the grass roots.
In 1802 the Government built a trail
from'  the" Northeast   arm   of   Upper
Arrow Lake to Trout Lake, a distance
of 12 miles, which let in quite a number of prospectors and led to the dis-
oovery'of the Pool group,  the Galnor,
Home, Seroy, Abbott and many other
lodges, which has placed Lardeau at
the head of the list anions' the
The Dominion Live Stock Association
have issued a statement on the excessive freight rates charged by .steamship
companies carrying cattle from Montreal to Great Uritain, which threatens
to destroy one of Canada's gieatest industries. Since the establishment of
the'cattle trade with Britain in 1875
it has returned to Canada over ,75 million of dollars. Owing mostly to the
excessive rates charged���the number, of
cattle has been decreasing every year
since 1890, when 104,133; Canadian
cattle were sold in Britain for the sum
of &8,111, 115. Last 'year the figures
had declined'to S9,572,cattlo, valued
at ��6,799,638.;, Mr. Mulock, M.P., has
intioduced a'bill which it is hoped
--willjesfcore the cattle trade to a healthy basis, by the prevention of excessive and uncertain rates which are now
strangling it.""'' This is certainly a subject which should be taken up by the
Press of the whole Dominion, as there
can scarcely be an industry in which
the whole country is_ more deeply interested. High freight rates on both
land and sea are stunting and dwarfing the manufacturing and commercial'
industries of our country, to say nothing of Like hardships entailed upon' agriculturists and cattle men. 3tis time
our legislators looked into this 'matter
of freight rates where tliere is no competition to bring prices down toa'.'-liye
and let live'" level. British Columbia
is affected more in; this particular than
-any other province. A merchant here
must charge''what' would" be looked
upon as an extortionate price in Ontario
���because ;,he 'has to make up for the
,freight>harge of ��l.00cper 100 lbs.'be-
.fore his"1 profit shows at all.,' It .is
cheaper for the B.C. merchant to send
to Spokane, Por tlarid or Sah Francisco
and pay the freight and duty combined
than to Toronto or Montreal and pay
the freight alone. Once more we say:
It is time for the Press of this country
to���take up this matter of freight rates,
the blight,ofswhich is bound to breed
'mildew, and decay in any country.       \~

having ben effected through tlie
agency of electricity, making possible
an awful simultaneous broadside, they
will sink apiin into the safe shelter of
the earth. The use of smokeless powder
will effectively conceal the whereabouts
of the batteries, so that a fleet intent
upon their destruction will not have
even the target which the dense overhanging smoke of gunpowder would
give. The most modern combinations
will be applied to secure the maximum
of effect for the minimum of exposure
of ordnance and men. ^
A sufficient number of these wells
will be provided to command every
mile of water inside Race Kocks, the
extreme point oT the island, and some
fourteen miles distant from Victoria.
Tho line of fire will extend upwards of
four miles. A system of great tunnels
and trenches will connect tho pits and
magazines, and the location of these
storehouses, which will be far underground, will be an absolute secret except to the few trusted men engaged
in their construction.

most of these claims are large and well

cast and north-west, which is Clio general course of all tho best mines of tho
world. All that is wanted in the camp
is means of transportation to enable
the mine-owners to ship their ores to a
market at reasonable cost. As the Government is about lo build a wagon road
from the Northeast Arm to Trout Lake,
which will bring some of these mines
within reasonable distance of smelters,
it is safo to say that greater activity
may be looked for in that camp. As in
all other1 places in British Columbia,
capital is needed, and as tho duty on
all lead ores aro so high it cannot very
well be shipped to the U. S.; tlie re-

ployed   in    and   about'-metalliferous
mines.    In 1873 as many,as 02,0S3 persons were returned   as   employod   iu
mines of this character in Groat Britain,
while   514,1-10   were   engaged. at   the
same'1 time in coal mines.   But, whilen
there has been a steadily downward" v
tendency in    regard to - thu'^rijjimber
of persons working   in   metalliferous
mines, collieries have found more and
'more employment, and have yielded a ,
progressive   output.   The   report   for
1SD3, which has'jusl been issued;-shows
that 35,7:J9 were employed iu metalliferous mines in that year, a decrease
of no less than 20.9J-1, or 43 per cent, on
twenty years ago, and of 2,32.5 or 6 per '
cent. 0111S92"   J11 connection with coal
mines, the number of .persons employed
last year was GS3.00S, which, in spite of
labor troubles, ,was" only some 000 leas
than in 1S92, while the iucrease in the<*'
twenty years was GS,S59, or 13 percent.-'
The pioduce of coal and other minerals' '
from  mines   classed  under  the Coal
Miuesl-tegulatidn Act reached its high v
.wabcr'mark'in-lSDl, when Jt exceeded-'
197 million tons, while last^year owing
.to the prolonged strike in the Midlands.,'
and the North,/ it fell -to" 175 million   -
tons.    This "la tier quantity, diowever, *���
\vas 22 per cent, more than the produce
���of 3S73^   The minerals raised from met- *
alliferous" mines 'are .chiefly iron ore,
clay,  salt, slates,' gypsum,  lead, zinc, '
tin, copper, barytes, arsenic, and so on,   *
the tables dividing the products of the-
mines  under- ��� twenty-three   separate'
heads.   It is not possible within  the
limits of our space to   examine   and
compare all   the   figures, under   each
of these heads.   It must suffice to say
that tho only notable increase recorded
is in'regard to clays,  which includes  '
china clay, fire clay, &c., but excludes   ���
ordinary day.   In iron ore, the' mineral -which ranks first in bulk, there is a
marked falling off in produce,   lh tho"1
ten' years onding/ 1SS2 over 16 million
tons of iron ore weie raised on an average every twelve months, while in the
next decade the average fell to 14 millions, and last year it was only 11 millions.    The produce of salt is also declining, possibly owing to the action of
the Salt'lJnion in controlling and curtailing supplies.   A more marked decrease is,'however, in the quantity of
copper ore raised,    In 1S73 the produce
was80,lSS tons, and though "the quantity fell off, sthe average for the ten
years ending 1SS2 was Dj,72-t tons."   A
more rapid decline than set  iu, and  in
the next decade the average quantity
was but 20,207 tons.   The downward
tendency is apparently still unchecked,    ������
for while in 11>(J2 there was raised o,99."> .
tons, the quantity was only 5,310 tons
last year.    Tin and zinc ores show very
little variation, but tho production o"f
lead   ore,   of   iron   pyrites,   arsenical
pyrites, phosphate oflime, manganese
ore, aird some of tho minor minerals
has declined.   More than one-third of ,
the persons employed in  metalliferous
mines   are   in  what tho Government
describe a* the South-Wcolorn district,
consisting of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset,
Gloucester,   Hampshire,   (ho    Isle   of
Wight, Iloieford,  Monmouth, Somerset, Wiltshire, and the eastern part of
Glamorganshire. Practically the whole
of the copper, tin, arsenic,  and aracni-
,c:il pryitos,  with a considerable  proportion of the clays and hinallcr quantities of other minerals wore found   in
this area.   The tables given by the in-
opectors do not enable us to arrive at a
conclusion as to the comparative mm)-"
bor of persons employed in  mining  or
the quantity Of ore produced in  particular   districts.      Careful report   is,
however, made of tho number of fatal
accidents   which   occurred.      In   coal
mines the deaths from accidents wore
at the ratio of 0-013 to every thousand
persons employed, while in metalliferous mines the ratio was only 1 "781.   The
South-Western district compared favorably with the rest of Great Brit-iiu
as regards the accidents in coal mines,
but the proportion of fatalities in the
metalliferous mines  was   as   high   as
3*225 in this district.

A  houseful of Fmlandeis ware so'drunk  last Sunday afternoon that when Constable Graham went theie _to arrest  one of them for using <t knife on one  01 his fellows there was only one man  suliieiently sober to be able to .give an  intelligent account of'what had happened. These men aro said lobe quiet  nnd iuoflcn-sive all the week round except Sundays, when they "fill up" on  beer, which is to bo obtained ad libitum  somewhere in the'neighborhood. It is  not our duty to mention th.it place.  We merely draw aLtcntion to, the fact  ���������that the law is "being broken every  Sabbri^hsssOSvil results may be expected if this is allowed to go on.  Revelstoke is badly in want of a  recreation ground. There is' a nice,  level- piece of ground, about half an  acre in extent, adjoining the school-  house. , Tt was cleared some three  years  ago  at  a  cost of &300 by some  ;   enthusiastic  young 'men  who formed  themselves into a baseball ,club.    This  ,,year efforts were to have been made to  organise; either  a baseball or cricket  ' club and this very desirable piece of  cleared ground was to have been utili-  .sed for the purpose. , But now comes  * the, news that the Presbyterians ai c  about to build a church on it. It. is  most.unfortunate, as there is no other  cleared piece of ground suitable for re-creation purposes to be obtained. If  our citizens are as geneipus as they  -aer progressive they ,will take steps to  ���������retain this piece of "ground foroui boys  ���������ind girls to enjoy the healthy out-door  games so dear to the young'Anglo-Saxon all the world over. Would it-not  lie wise, before it is too late, to take  steps to purchase or rent it as a people's  pink? Tliere are many other sites th.tt  ���������would be suitable to build .1 church on.  But why is it that churches of whatever denomination get the very best  pick of lots in townsites free? The  great disseminator of knowledge, news,  and education, the newspaper, gets no  sueh fat pickings, neither does it ask  for it. But "the church" is privileged  to have whatever it sets its desire on.  There are several other spots on which  a chiuch could be built, but not another spot (because cleared) for <i recreation  ground. Kelson has a splendid recreation ground���������tlie best in the two  Kootenays���������Kaslo, Golden, Donald,  Karaloops, even New Denver, all have  open spaces fit ior races and athletic  sports���������all but llevelstoke ' We have  not even got a road to our show dIjcc���������  the Big Eddy J  BIG BEND. *  More Gold from the Consolation Mine.

The  bag weighed over 10 lbs., and with  some gold added, which brought the  amount to $2,550 and weighing over 11  lb**., was sealed and sent lo San Francisco for sale, the banks there giving  50c. an ounce more than can lu obtained in Briti-*h Columbia. Thi-. represents a z-ai.se of $00 to the seller. John  Sands has been working at the Consolation 51 in-j since List fall, ind has  come down for .1 short holiday.  Mes-as. C. S. Town-send and< Jacob  Dohnage ai rived here from Toronto on  Monday, and left with Mr. .7. W. lias-  kins to inspect the Sol lioldcu Mint* on  Columbia River just above the mouth  of Smith ('reek.' Mr. ll.isl-.ins bus ;il->o  staked a claim on Smith Uieek for the  Smith Creek Mining Co., 01 which  Messrs. Townscnd and Dohnage are  representative*'.' Mr. Townseod's brother is lirgely interested in the Sudbury  mines and the gold mines of Algoma,  Ont. They are backed by a large  amount of. Vapit.il, and if the Big Bend  comes up to tneir expectations we may  expect to see at'least two gold mines���������  the Sol Holden and the Smith Creek���������  worked on a large scale. One of the  partners in the Smith Cicek Mine is  Mr. Com slock 01 Toronto, a nephew of  the famous Comslock ol mining notoriety, o  George Terrvbcrry nnd three men  left here in a boat on Wednesday for  the Rip A7an Winkle claim on Game's,  Greek. , They look up^i big cargo of  supplies and machinery, the heaviest  being a largo derrick lor lifting out  boulders arid locks ,from the channel  they are cutting, into which the water  will" be turned, so that they can u<-c the  bed of the creek'for their iii.nncl to the  shaft. More men will be sent up ���������shortly ; an Upright saw will be erected and  flumes made on the spot. The half mile  from the Columbia River to the canyon  on this creek w.i1- profitably worked  some yens ago1, several thousand dol-  l.us 1-ouig taken out, and il is exported  that gold will lie struck on tlio bcdrdik  of the l.uuncl they are now digging at  tfoe'head of the canyon. A eluicc Imk  will be put m at once and the dirt washed,a-s they proceed. The C.u-noV.

Over 100  more names are on the application  list and will go on the regular list before the sitting of the Revision Court  on June 11th. Besides these uanics  there are'120 which have been dropped  from the original list, a percentage of  .which will go on again, as many of  these voters ate still resident in the  district. The full revised list for tho  riding will probably be a little short  of 500.   '  Large numbers of families are coming  up river every week on the O. &K. Co's  steamers, bound for Alberta.

She carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley,  to -which were attached five smaller  bouquets," which, with a solitaire diamond ring, was the gift of the groom.  Sirs.

The bride was  on' the arm of her father and as the  party reached the chancel tho bridesmaids halted, two on either side linking crooks overhead and under which  the bride, her- father and maid of honor passed. The scene was very pretty  and artistic;, viewed irom the gallery of  the church. After the marriage service was over the happy couple repaired to the paternal losidenco, "Belvi-  dere," where a reception was held and  an elegant repast was served iu the  dining-room and on the broad verandah, which was curtained with heavy  green damask to exclude the daylight.

John TI. O'Leary, who was arrested  some months ago on the charge of assaulting AVilliam Glen, of-Arrow Lake,  with intent to do serious bodily harm,  surrendered his bail at New Westminster on Tuesday evening and--was immediately re-arrested by Mr. Moresby.  On being brought before Mr. T. C. Atkinson, P. M., application was made  for renewal of bail, and granted, defendant in the sum of $2,500 and two sureties of $1,000 each. The order bound  O'Leary over to appeal' at Revelstoke  on the 20th hist., for a preliminary trial, -when he will be seut up for trial at  the ensuing Kamloops assizes. --���������=  The evidence of Drs. Walker and Pagan was put in last evening, to the effect that Glen's injuries were very serious, and likely to permanently disable  him.  Glen, iu his first statement, claimed  that-O'Leary knocked him down and  then kic-.ed him "brutally about the  -stomach and abdomen. In a, rider ho  added that he fell irom a horso later in  the day, and might have been kicked  by tho*animal.

The delegates came back  from Victoria with the Government's  Tpromise that $16,000 should be appropriated exclusively for the two wagon  roads���������to Trout Lake and Steamboat1  Canyon.    .Of   course,   this was   little  ^enough' for'constructing nineteen miles  of good wagon road, and things would  liavo to be drawii pretty fine to make  .the money do it.   But it is now stated  'that the $10,000 has to cover the ex-  "   pense of all the work to be done on  roads and trails in the Big Bend and  Lardeau during the whole of next'-year,  "and the programme now reads : $S,000  for Lardeau wagon road and trails; and  $8,000 for, Revelstoke  and'' Big Bend  'rocuis'and trails. Those who profess  to know anything about the Big Bend  .trail say that it will take $2,000 to put  it in passable condition above Steamboat Canyon.   This would leave $6,000  '     only for the wagon road and nothing  'at all for the town itself.  ' *        t       *  ' "**('! '  -Precisely tho same conditions apply  .to the Lardeau road. All work on  ...trails and hridges in the Lardeau will  have to be paid for out of .the $8,000  appropriated for the wagon' road, so  that if the road is to be constructed at  ,all���������aud $8,000 is not enough to build a  good road���������no other work on trails or  ^.bridges can be attempted in the Lar-  ��������� 'deau.this year. Consequently the delegates have good grounds for saying  that the Government..has^broken faith  "ivrth'them. Ihave an idea, however,  that tho provincial exchequer is in an'  pxfcremoly low condition, and that the  7 appropriations already made for various  jvoyIw throughout the province are. very  much 'more than' the Government can  afford. But as there is a general elec-  'tiou qlose at hand something heroic had  to'be done to stave off'mortification, if  not actual defeat, at5the polls.

The Revelstoke  Mr. Howson nnnouncess hinj-self as an  Indepondont, but; his followers ��������� or  some of them���������say he is a. "straight"  'Government man.

Where arc the Independents  who were elected in 1S90? All, all are  to-day full-fledged "Ins" or "Outs,"  \ipd I am afraid that Mr. Howson, as  in' Independent irr lhe House, would  feel so cold and 'lonely that he would  be glad to warm himself in the blaze of  Government munificence or the heat of  Opposition invective.  "They all do it."  I have been informed by a man who  ri'--*.-? he knows whereof he speaks that  Mr. Kellie was induced by the Government to give his vote in favor of the  Parliamentary Buildings Bill by the  > promise of a good, fat Government job.  If this be true Mr. Kellie Iiah been  duped, as the fact of his being a candidate for re-election shows that he did  not get the "fat job," and such being  the case he would-be little likely to be  caught by mere chaff again. If my informant is not merely repeating an idle  rumor he will' have courage enough to  qiic-fefJon Mr. Kellie on this matter at  '.the meeting in Peteraon's JT(ilI Saturday night, otherwise I for- one shall refuse tx> believe that it is anything more  than an electioneering yam got up by  Mr. Keltic's opponents, and in all fair-  ne"ss'I-Tniis������ say lhat the s.iid informant  is a close friend 'to one of tho other  candidates.
