Denoro mine work is at pre-e-t in
progress on the' new1- ore bin. Tlii-
will be 40 x IG feet in-ide, divided
into three compartment-* ca"li 20
feet in depth. The bin will he
built on a 12 fcofc found ition. and
will have two styles of ore chuter
���one for loading tlie low flai t convertible caiy, and the other for ordinary oro dumps. A newt-put
���on a much lower level- than tlie
Great Northern, is t-horth to be
built to the bin by tho Canadian
Pacific. A crushing plant, which
\yill handle tho total output from
tho Oro Denoro is to be instill led
at this point. The- crusher is being furnished by the Itadfield Co.,
of Sheffield, England. The ran-
-chine, which will bo driven by an
.electric motor, is to be rriade entirely of steel, and has an opening
"24 x, 18 inches in size, The
crushed oro will be carried to tlie
bins on a conveying bolt 100 feet
in length, and will bo di.stributed
to any desired compartment of the
bin by an ingenious arrangement
of a cross bolt. Whou this plant

Tlie only difference  .between Cassandra1 and the prophet  i>f the Times was the former had  ithe "gift" btii no one wolild belies her, and the latter hasn't the  ���������"gift."    ���������T#E C. P: R. is* the only transcontinental road that has delivered  jnail regularly to this district during the recent storms either from  the west or the east. No coast  inail has come over the Great  'Northern system" to Greenwood in  ihe past two w eeks. The C. P. It.  lias been delivering ixiJtil every day  iluiing that period. Railroads encouraged by the Liberals appear to  be as unreliable as the' party supporting them. It is Bcldom that  Connections are made between Coa-t  flrcat NortiierH trains and the.  ������lson and Fort Sheppard and the  "V., V. E., the branch lines of that  System running iiito this district.  It is a generally accepted custoih  that writers receive complimentary  tickets to all entertainments in return- for   local   rf-fercnefc   iii  the  newppnper.     This  cufitHhi is not  .observed in Oreenwbdd;    instead,  itie  editor  is often asked to buy  iicketn.     Because a Htiwsp'aper office prints a few tickets or dodgers  fcir a concert or ball is no reason  ihatthe editor should purchase admission to tlie diUeftaintri'en't.   As  k  rule  the  person  Ordering job  printing gets value for the money  invested, nnd expects iu addition a  Jural reference to bo made iu the  t-olumns of the  paper.     Dances,  lectures and concerts are intended  for the entertainment  of person*  who have the lime anU inclination  ' it attend, but it is too much to ex-  fcect  the  Editor  to  buy  a ������1.50  Sieket for every $2 vvbrtli or printing he dw8, and then  give a ������5  cVHte-up of tho affair.

The  "showing" in a case of this kind  is either th'e cash enlightment or  tlie promise of a government situation. Others are more brazen.  The}' boldly go from one committee  room to another until they are  either kicked out or paid their  price, la commercial transactions  it is the buyer wko usually creates  the mafliet; and if there wfe'fft not  buyers of vote's there wo'ulu not.be  s*eilersj There was considerable"  buying and selling inGreenwood  ridiug in the campaign just closed;  Wheth'ef the candidates were  aware of this it is impossible to  say, but it is reasonable to suppose  that they were expected to deliver  the goolls if elected. Comparatively poor men cannpt spend  thousands 6'f dollars iu a"n election'  campaign. This being so, some  corporate or other influence was  behind the candidate, and this influence must have expected returns for the money invested. Men  do not scatter $20 and $30 bills  over an electoral district during a  campaign just for the pleasure" of  being liberal. There is something  behind this liberality.  Ricfcafd McBride's Gre2t Victory  The victory achieved by Hon.  Richard McBride in tile provincial  elections of British Columbia on  Saturday is a great tribute to' that  eminent - Liberal-Conservative  leader, and a well deserved rebuke  and reverse for the Ottawa govern-  m'e'ilt: Mr. Mo'Bride has given tlie  province over which lie rules clean  and businesslike administration;  lie ha* been a first-class minister  and has earned the esteem of his  fellow-citizens. Sir Wilfrid Laur-  ier dislikes Mr. McBride, first, lid-  c'ailsb' he is a Conservative, sec-  dndly, b'ecatise he refuses to make  his government Subservient and  useful to" the Ottawa machine, and  linally, because he lias persisted in  declining to give to tlie Grand  Trunk Pacific a huge slice of the  territdry of the province as a bonus,  after' tho precedent set by the l(oss  government in Toronto)  These" differences between Mr.  McBride and Sir \Viifrid Latirier  induced tlio" latter to undertake to  change the government of the province aud td put Mr. McBride out.  The first nltiveiiient with this end  in view was made at tlie prdvincial  conference on the subject of subsidies. The Ottawa goverriment  organized opposition to tho demands of Mr; McBride bn behalf of  the province, and refused to grant  the financial consideration sought  for. It wiw not influenced in tho  position it then took by an honest  consideration of the subject. Tho  evidence of this is to be found in the  circuit mcc   that   the  agents of  the Laurier government were  authorized to tell the people of  British' Columbia,during the recent  eb'u'fest that if they really'desired  to" have th'e' money STr Wilfrid  Laurier would! give ft to them if  ,r;ho verdict tlVey should render  were adverse' to' Mr. McBride.  The Ottawa grafters thus employed  the subsidy Question with a view  to corruptly influencing public  "opinion. They brazenly offered a  larger money subsidy for the province" as rt reward for the defe.it of  the provincial government. After  this move bad been taken the Ottawa machine assumed chah-ge of  the campaign against th'e popular  premier; Mr. Mclunes, governor  of the Yukon,- was withdrawn fro'iVi'  his post to lead' in the struggle on  behalf of his" Ottawa employers,  and cVne oi* Sir Wilfrid Lauricr's  .political.judges' wa's taken from the  bench to give an air of respectability to' the assault/ These agents  of the federal politicians1 deliberately chosen to' captrire the ma-  ehinery of legislation -for their  masters applied themselves to their  task and made slander their chief  we'apon. The people thus witnessed a 'cjjueer state of affairs,  narfre]3r, agents of tne notorious  '"rake-off" government at Ottawa  assuming virtuous aire as they denounced some snfall provincial  transaction to which they attempted to attach the flavor of  scandal.  The assault made by the Ottawa  men upon' tht? western province ha*s  been a d'ismal failure. The' government of Mr, iicBride is stronger  than ever, Messrs. Mctniies and  Henderson, the two chief representatives of the Ottawa ministers,  have not even secured seats for  themselves in the legislature.  Thus has Ottawa inte'rferefuc'o iu  provincial concerns for corrifpt.ancl  selfish purposes been fittingly punished. British Columbia's example in this contest is soniething  for the other provinces to follow.  Not one of them should permit the  grasping and dishonest Ottawa concern to get its grip or retaiu its  grip npoti the provincial govern-  in'erit.- The graft aud dishonest}'  practised at Ottawa ought td be  cemfined to that point until, by a  general rising of tho people, wo can  wipe these evils out once and forever:���������Mail and Empire.  went over in a boat," and only one,  a duffer who could not swim a  stroke got'out.

It is pathetic to see  the pother Edinburgh and! Lord  Rosebery make about such.comparatively insignificant affairs at,  (she removal of the Scots Greys and  the threatened demolition   of the  Ayr Brig.     These   patriotic convulsions are several ages too- late,  aud   Edinburgh flhat ought to be  throbbing,   with national life,, that  ought   to  bo  tlve   Mc-o\i and the  shrine cf every Scot who- loves his  owu land aiuf would wish for her  moro than workshop, or Miop keop-  fng glory, attracts nobody but the  tho tourist, who, walking under the  ancient citadel,  may indulge  his  melancholy in thinking of the past,  not   only    where    the * trumpet  sounded aud the banner flow, but  where   philosophy   aud   wife and  poetry flourished in tho strcot of  the modern Athens, in which they  are foucd no more.     We canuot  who-lfy- blame Edinburgh.    For her  municipal   Philistinism   aud  vandalism,, that robbed her of many of  hor worthiest > features,  and have  given her most sacred spots to the  bauds of the Goth in architecture,  and   have shown   themselves for  years bo ludicrously in the matter  of the Ushor Hall, she canuot be  too much blamed.   But her utter  ineptitude  as   tlio urban soul of  Scotland, her degradation to tho  position of   a fifth-rate provincial  from-the rich valleys,' is endeavor  .ing* to hue 5or himself-and his de;f  'pendents a living out of. .the  .mountain side. ' To do this he  "clears a space, farms it in rude  fashion and in from five to twenty  years exhausts _it. ,-IIe now~ moves  up the 'mountain side and repeats  the proeess. Erosion follows his  operations and the'land becomes-a  series of worthless gutters;.  Nest may be mentioned" the-professional woodcutters, including  ton- bark men,'-pulp men and  rtrai-berers. The first seek only  the bark, birt, like the hunter of  flamingoes' tongues _ or buffalo  i hides, they leave behind them to  rot after collecting their tribute a  huge but worthless residue. The  pulpman cuts' clean, good, bad,  large small, "old and youug, thus  making natural reproduction of the  forest impossible. 'The lumberman takes what he wants, much or  littie, but by methods that destroy  almost as m-ucb. as he takes, and  practically insures fires, which  complete the work of denudation.  Having conquered > and burned  Carthage, Scipio passed the plow  through its site, , <   ,  The corresponding final toneh is  given to the deforested mountain-  slopes by the fains. While the  forest remains these regulate the  runoff, holding back the watcrr  passing it into the underground-  circulation and ensuring throughout the year a substantial equal  stream flow, greatly to tho advantage of agriculture, commerce,  manufactures and all other interests concerned.
