On Nififer and  on Nile.  London, .Nov. 18.���������Lord Salisbury's  Guidhall   speech   must   have   been a  keen disappointment to those prophets  who foretold a (spirited announcement  that -would' send   the blood   thrilling  proudly  once more through   English  veins. - Nevertheless), the speech struck  tho true note of English  public opinion on   the most critical  of questions  troubling England  just now, viz.: Her  relations with France on the Nile and  on the Niger, "England in  not greedy,  not eager   to paint the map  provocatively red,   but we cannot allow  our  plain rights to be overridden."   There  certainly   was   more   Lord   Salisbury  than  Mr. Chamberlain  in  this  un ig-  gressive line.   The French press, keeping up its idea of the   British  cabinet  being   divided   into     Salisbury    and  Chamberlain sections, takes it calmly  some   even 'interpreting   Lord   Salisbury's  words  as'mainly  intended   to  keep his too impulsive English followers   quiet,   while   arranging   matters  with M. Hanotaux, the French foreign  minister.   The Times maintains  that  the retention of the  right bank of the  Niger aud the rulers of Sokota, Gando,  Boussa, Nikki, and other states, maps  Of which  were published here for the  first time  this week,   clearly seem   to  leave France no valid claim on these  countries on the basis of prior treaties.  The'English claim is particularly clear  in Boussa  or Borguc.    "It can   hardly  have any other ending than the French  recall   of  Lieut.  Bretonnet   and   the  force of Seuegals.   The real gravity of  the situation arises from the hysteria  of   the   aggressive   JFrcnch   colonial  . party, which clings  to the susceptible  French   public opinion  and may imperil the life of any ministry which  withdraws even  from  this proved  aggression.   This element leads  the belief that the  commission now sitting  in Paris will prove as futile as previous  negotiations, and then m&.y come  tho  opening for arbitration as regards  the  Nile.  " Reported presence of French officers  at   Fnslioda,   between  Kartoum   and  Wadelia, has reawakened fears which  Sir Colin Scott Moncriuff excited three  years ago,   when  he explained how  a  civilized   nation   on   the   upper Nile  might flood Egypt, or cut off its water  supply at pleasure.    This  close relationship   between   the  prosperity   of  Egypt'and   the control of the whole  Nile from Victoria Nyauza to the Mediterranean is a powerful   argument  in  the hands of the advocates of the "Forward Policy."  The English public is clearly growing very uneasy at the persistence of  Indian outbreaks. The heroism of the  Sikhs, the Gordon Highlanders and the  Northamptonshire regiment was splendid, but the question is forcing itself  painfully upon public attention, what  goocLcan follow this terrible waste of  the best British blood on the Afghan  frontiers.  munication with tho Yukon, were  settled in n friendly manner. Naturally the Premier will discuss ,other  matters, as for cxn .nple tho abolition  by the two countries of tin? duties on  coal, lumber, barley, eggs,fish, potatoes  and hay. It would, however, be a mistake to suppose that the Premier intends to e-en up our tariff question in  a general way, or as he has suggested,  to extend British preference in our tariff to the United States. The tariff  has been settled and manufacturers  feel the assurance thuf capital invested in manufactories is safe.  The World connects   Premier  Laur-  ier's visit with the former commercial  union,   speeches   in   parliament   and  Boston, and also connects with it   Far-  rer's presence in Washington.   It says  that    Premier    Laurier's      presence  smacks of   hypocrisy   and   that   ultimately he will have to deal with a congress composed of British  haters,  tail-  twisters, diplomatic sharks, and political bunco men.    We havo had dealings  with them before in   a   nation.     The  United States is out of the   diplomatic  code    It has  claimed   the   privileges  and practices of a   gipsy   horssfcnuler.  and as Sir Wilfred has   gone into   the  camp of his   own   election   he   must  abide the result.   Even if they  agreed  to everything he sought, does he think  they will carry any  of   it   out ?     Sir  Wilfrid needs to be cured once for   all,  and wo believe he will   be   effoctually-  cured of his "Washington   tendencies"  at an early date.  The Mail and Empire claims that  the Globe in its statement that Hon  Joseph Chamberlain, secretary for the  colonies, proposed absolute free trade  in the empire is a misrepresentation  of the facts, and cites its statement on  September 8 that Mr. Chamberlain ex  prossly declined to make any proposal,  ft also cites the imperial blue book and  says Premier Laurier's Washington  visit shows that he deceived Great  Britain so as to get the treaties announced in o'-der to be able to treat  with Washington.

Louisville, Ky., Nov. 15.���������The morning session of the general assembly of  the Knights of Labor was devoted to  ���������the- discussion of the report of the  committee on 'emigration. It was the  prevailing sentiment that some vigorous steps should be taken to restrict  immigration, and statistics were presented showing that nearly ten million  foreign laborers had come to this  country during the last 23 years,which,  it was declared, worked a'hardship on  the American workman.  The report that Past General Master  Workman Sovereign had stepped down  and out because he desired to fix his  fences for the presidency on a labor  reform ticket in 1900 was vigorously  denounced on all sides.  To meet the popular demand  for information upon the subject of the gold  fields   of   Northern' Canada,   Messrs.  Allan,     the     well-known   shipowners  whose   name   is   a     household   word  throughout  Canada,   have   issued     a  bright   up-to-date   pamphlet    dealing  with the   mineral  wealth of Canada,  and   the   lar   Northwest.     Naturally  ELlondyke  and the  rich auriferous deposits   of   the   Yukon Valley   receive  considerable attention.   The intending  prospector is advised how to reach the  gold fields, and when to make tho journey,   and   an   interesting account   is  given of the other varied resources of  this region.     Messrs. Allan,  however,  wisely advised   the  emigrants  not to  neglect  the more settled  areas of the  Dominion.   The  recent discoveries of  gold, silver   and   copper   in   Ontario,  Ivootenay and Cariboo are all touched  upon, while  due prominence  is given  to the more prosaic, but perhaps more  tangible competencies  to be  acquired  from following agricultural pursuits in  Manitoba or British Columbia.  Thirty thousand dollirs was divided  among tho lucky owners of the Whitewater mine in this city on Nov. 15.  Two thousand was placed in the working fund anp about 35,000 carried forward. This brings the total dividends  to date very near the 5100,000 mark,  Ninety-four thousand dollars is th ��������� exact aniont divided to date. Calculating the 36 cars upon which returns  had not been made on the day (ho dividend was paid, the Whitewater's profits  at that date, exclusive of the money  in the sinking fund, amounted to $130,  000. These unreported shipments will  go into the next dividend, to be declared on December loth.  The Whitewater is now shipping two  October 45 cms went to the smelter  and in the present month 24 cars had  been sent out up to tho 15th. This  rate will probably be kept up ' during  the entire winter,. At the mine 110  men are on the pay roll and while most  ������of them arc engaged in taking out ore,  development is not be neglected mid  Manager Em I on says the property never  looked so well as at the present time.  The ore now being taken out comes  from No. "0," 3 and 4 and is of a fine  average grade, running n little oyer  101 ounces in silver and about -10 per  cent. lead. A lino body.of ore ,is -just  opening up above No, -1 tunnel and if  Mr. Eaton's theories are borne out,  which seems quite probable large shipments can ho made from this ground  nlono.

HORSE THIEVES  CAUGHT.  They aud Their Plunder Captured Near  Princeton.  Provincial Constable I. A. Dinsmore  is just back from the Midway section,  where he has been for the lu3t few  days helping Constable Lawder, of  Greenwood, to search for the horse  thieves near Princeton in the fc-'imilk-  Hicon country. The thieves made no  resistance wh"ii arrested, and, as they  had all the stolen horses with them,  the whole outfit was taken back to  Kninlooi's by the officers, and Constables Dinsmore and Lawder returned  to their respective posts of duty. The  name of one of the horse thieves is  Littlo the other one's name is yet unknown.  Modern Autocrats.  the last issue of that interesting mag  nzine. In speaking of his trip on the  Slocan lake, he says :  "A short rail journey to Roscbery  and the Slocan, the fastest boat on the  route, takes you down the Slocan lake  to New Denver, Silverton and  Siocan  City.   To describe  the gorgeous beauties of Slocan lake scenery  one would  require the pen  of a lluskin at least  (and 1 hardly think I can lay my hand  just at the moment on the article), but  1 heard an Irishman on  the boat singing '"Killarney," and the words of the  song were not inappropriate.   Perhaps  f saw the country at its best, but noth- )  inn could be more inspiring   than the  sight of these lofty ranges  clothed in  their autumn garb of gold and purple  and red, reflected-with   extraordinary  fidelity on the placid water, and above  the   translucent   blue   of a   cloudless  sky.    Having decided  to make a stay  at New Denver on the steamers's return journey   and  to see   Slocan City  first,     I remained on board when   we  called at the former plncc.   Some four  miles  below New Denver is Silverton  and here for  the first time  during my  journey   I saw signs   of   mining act-  ivilv.  records of claims recorded during the  interval the applicant was in  delimit, and that such chums do not  (except as may be therein stated) conflict with or overlap any of the properties of the applicant :  (d.)    The sum of five dollars.  The Minister of Mines may thereupon gave instructions for the alteration of the date of the applicant's free  miner's certificate so as to conform  with the date of the expiration of the  lapsed certificate, and may also give  iristuclions for such amendment to be  made io the records affected as may be  considered requisite, and any such  relief may be partial as to properties  in respect whercwf relief is given, or so  as to save adverse rights acquired  during default of the applicant.  JAMES BAKER,  Provincial  Secretary  and  Minister of  Mines.  Phil ITickey was trudging up the  Idaho trail the other day when he came  upon the head and shoulders of a man  sticking above the snow. "Help me out  of here, pardnsr," came in a weak voice,  "caught by that d���������-n slide' and been in  here four hours." Phil, of course, helped  the man, whose naine we could not  learn,' out' ol his difficulty and found  him almost frozen. He was taken to the  mine and at last accounts was getting  along nicely. It is said that full half a  dozen slides have come down on that  trail already this fall.  To Mwm It  Concern,  W.

How  far   Sir   Wilfred  'Will   Treat- on  It at Washington. ,  Toronto, Nov. 15.���������The Globe this  '. morning referring to Washington negotiations makes the authoratitive statement that.the arrangement was made  by Great Brit.iin, the United States and  Canada that Premier Laurier and Sir  Louis Davies should be present and  thatthb various international questions pending, two of which, the American cattle quarantine and postal com-  ,Thf concert given in Spencer's hall,  on Saturday evening last, by Miss  Marrack supported by ��������� Miss Harry  Watson and Sammy Johnson, was well  attended. The ...entertainment consisted of piano solos and., duett's (in.  which the,ladies showed 'good execution and style),songs and dances. Miss  Marrack possesses a well-cultivated,  contralto voice and gave several selections in good style. Miss Watson is  a good entertainer and in,her Spanish  and Hawaiian songs her pleasing  soprano voice showed to effect. But it  was in their duetts the ladies were  heart! to the best advantage, their  voices blending so harmoniously. In  his Negro comedies little Sammy Johnson mack: a decided hit. The precocious youth gives great promise as a  public entertainer.  By.: way of comment wo';' might "siiy  that the company made two mistakes,  the first in advertising as a ''Variety"  when there was none of that element,  and second, in giving a Sunday entertainment���������the town being now past  that stage. . '  The fixing of Thanksgiving Day on  November 25th   in order  that  it may  harmonize   with the   American  anniversary,  and so cause  as little bother  to   business   interests as  possible,   is  being  sharply criticized.     The   complaint is made that it i-, too late in the  season, October being a much   better  month for the purpose thaw November.  It is pointed out, and  with force,  that  there is no more reason that  tho Canadian celebration  should  fall  on   the  same clay as tho American  thai-i there  is   that   Dominion   Day     should   be  shifted from   the  first of July   to  the  fourth.     A   great   many propositions  have been made regarding this  anni-  'versary.   in some quarters it is urged  that the date should be fixed permanently  instead of being allowed  to remain a movable one ;   in others that it  should be done away   with  altogether,  these latter giving as  their reason for  this  attitude  that of late years much  of the  original significance of the day  has been  lost sight of.'   Others  again  want the celebration held on the.same  day in both tlie States and Canada, not  only because  this  moans  less  annoyance  to the   business..world,   but because it enables  holiday travellers  to  points on either side of the border .to  take advantage'of the  cheap  railroad  rates.  It is none of our business to enquire  minutely into tho secrets of the Grit  party or the Tory fraternity either.as we  arc not of either of them; but it appears strange to us that after the Liberal convention of Now Westminster  some weeks ago deciding Mr. Tcmnlc-  ton should have the Lieut-Governorship of this province, tho Ottawa government has given it to Senator Mclnnes.' Tefuur ftiini'j-tlnA'e is just as  much necessity for Lieutenant Gov-  crnois as there is for two tails on a dog;  but why governments will pay no attention to the will of the people in the  matter of incumbents, while they are  retained, is the mystery. This is only  another proof governments ought to bo  taught lessons by the people. The late-  Tori government played ducks aud  drakes with tho patronage at will as if  it were their own personal property,  disregarding wholly tho choice of the  people, and the present government is  following in the footsteps of its predecessors. A good offhand snubbing  would tench those gentlemen an offhand lesson. They know, or ought to  be taught, they are only public servants to do the will'of tho people, and  not autocrats by appointment like the  Czar of Puss ia, to trample on public  wishes, and carry out their own behests.  J. H. Moran who recently sold the  Queen Bess mine to Mossr-t Capt. Duncan and .Melbourne strues that from IS  to 25 men are being employed at the  mine and that a wagon road to it will  Anon he completed. The mine will  ship steadily all winter and the ore being taken out now gives a value of 150  ounces in silver and 70 per cent. lead.  A new strike was recently made on the  Queen Bess and 30 inches of ore were  exposed. About 2,000 feet of development work has '>ccn done, the longest  tunnel being 450 feet and the greatest  depth 300 feet. The mine is looking  well and a huge quantity of ore has  been blocked out.

England's prison authorities arc  abolishing the use of the treadmill and  oakum picking in the penal institutions of the United Kingdo.n, and are  putting convict labor to a mere profitable use. Army and navy stores, especially the making of garments and  accoutrements, are now engaging the  attention of the inmates of Her Majesty's jails, who likewise manufacture  themailbags of .the postal department,  and the shirts, uniforms and boots; of  their arch-enemies, the police. - The  result is a vast saving all round, and  an announcement is. made that the  government has seme badly worn  treadmills for sale to the highest  bidder.

Many theories for the mineral formations of this part of the country  appear to be advanced by different  uiineia'.og'sis ; but one thing appears  the more certain as development work  is done, and that is ihey are of comparatively recent date. They may be  of difiL-rent ages ; and the fact that  some leads alter being followed a distance disappear altogether, goes to  show that changes have taken place  in ihe crust of the earth by upheaval  and breaks since those seams were  formed. But these are the exception,  and do not constitute the rule. The  best mines in this part' show the seams  to become larger, and the metal better  as depth is followed. They also show,  and very distinctly in the Reco, the  metal following breaks and cracks in  the rock, that this must have been  made at the last upheaval. This means  that the metal emission wa������- subsequent  to these breaks of comparatively recent  date.  There is no doubt but that this  metal body or source of supply is a  distinct stratum enveloping the fiery  core of the earth, under prairies as  well as other portions ot the earth,  but has only come to the surface  through cracks and fissures made by  subterranean force, where the earth's  surface is thinnest in volcanic parts,  and there are evidences everywhere  hare   that these parts  were   formerly  Where is the Scotchman who don't love  the thistle?

Altogether   the  subject   is  land for pleasure, and as  our   palatial  one vast study, and one   on which but  few pages have thus far been carefully  read and mastered.  The Local government has guaranteed the bonds of the Nakusp and  Slocan Railway to the extent of $647,-  072, and gets in return as part payment 40 percent, of the gross earnings of the road.- This per centage  for the year, ending 30th of June last,  .\vas.but_ $11,266.13. which, would  place the entire earnings at $2S,-  165.32. Now, any one with any  knowledge of railroad business could  readily say the total earnings, of this  road for any year are more than that;  but the discrepancy arises from estimating the earnings on the long haul  basis, that is freight from here to  Nfikusp, for instance, is estimated pro  rata, as if destined for Montreal, and  passenger rates the same, when, in  fact they are three times as much.  Considered lrom any point of view the  R. R. Co. drew the wool over the  eyes of the government in making this  bargain. The only thing that gives  the government any degree of'security,  in this transaction is the right ta collect from the Federal government the  $3,200 a mile given by that House.  This, however, as a total amounts to  but $118,400 while the government  has guaranteed principal and interest  on the full amount of the bonds. The  province will be agreeably, surprised if  this does not yet result in a cloud  burst on-its peopled ,������������������''���������'  We notice in looking oyer the financial position of this province, that we  get a per capita allowance on but 98,-  173 of���������' a population. This should  be re-adjusted as the population must  now be nearly-50,000 more than that  entitling us to about $40,000 a'year  more from the Federal government.  Some years ago there was a re-adjustment of our revenue on debt account  by which we now receive $29,151116  a year more than we did then; and  we are just as much entitled to an increase on per capita account.  All told the province is now responsible for an annual payment of $94,-  853 on guarantees���������three of them for  railway and six of them of diainage  and irrigation debentures. It is a  mark of an enterprising government  to assist in the growth and development of its charge in this way, but discretion should .be used. For instance  .we know of no reason why a guarantee of 4 per cent, interest and all  principal should be given for any enterprise much less that of a promising  railway, as money can be got in England for all such enterprises at 3 per  cent.

There seems to be nothing left to do  It is a wonderful surprise and eye-  opener to a������rough westerner, yet the  people, even of old-England, could learn  something from Americans, as we are  usually called t :cre.  As I landed at Liverpool I was first  impressed with the solidity, and finish  of the city; next with the park-like appearance of the country.  O, land of love and dreamy thoughts,  And shining, fields and shady shotsi  Of coolest, greenest, grassy plots  Embossed with wild for-get-me-nots.  Even now, it all seems like a dream  to me. Yet it was no dream; it was a  reality. It appeared to me aa a vast  garden clotted with shade trees, and the  small well-cultivated fields, enclosed  with deep green, neatly trimmed  hedges, were beautiful. The remain  der of my days,'I do not expect will be  long enough to admit nie teillng of all  that impressed. The people everywhere I went were kind. Ifound them  hospitable and charming in their  homes. lFrom what I knew of some  English people in Canada, and -from  what I heard of Englishmen in particular, I expected -to find them cold,  stand-offish snobbish, and unapproachable altogether. In this regard I was  agreeably disappointed, for figuratively speaking, I was received.with open  arms everywhere. There is so much  to talk about this trip of my life, that  in a few letters it can only be scantily  done. Further, it could not help but  fill my heart more full with honest  pride for British Columbia, because I  have gazed on the scenery of these  lands, that hundreds of thousands of  tourists rave about annually.  Our history practically is just commencing. Do you ever imagine what  the hand of men will have accomplished 1,000 years hence ? Do you remember British Columbia 10 years ago?  Did you visit Kootenay five years ago,  and walk through her forests primeval,  where scarcely a sound, except the  roaring of waters, and the wild birds'  merry tone could be heard ?  Do you remember Vancouver 11 years  ago, as the great trees were falling to  make ruom for the city of to-day?  Then think of the marvellous change.  Many up-to-date busy cities now mark  the places where God's thick forest  grew. History ! why, our history has  yet to be written. It has been followed through the press of, our Province  only, and even to the most diligent  reader our progress is too swift to be  understood. There are new developments every clay. A big find usually  decides a townsite location in a night.  The thundering falls of the Kootenay  river are now be harnPssed to furnish  power and light for Kootenay mines,  cities and towns Five years ago it  was an easy matter to write about all  our mining development.

(Continued from Page 2.)  ly, and 16 weekly newspapers printed  in West Kootenay alone, and their  columns are regularly filled, chiefly  with mining news. On the other hand,  it io most interesting in the "old  world," to see what man accomplished;  to -risit battle-field; elegant palaces, old  castles and towers; to muse by the  statues of our dead heroes, and ponder over the history of centuries in  Westminster Albey and St. Paul's  cathdral.  British Columbia is just now beginning to attract attention across the Atlantic. The Diamond Jubilee did a  great deal to make Canada known in  England; but the Klondyke excitement  was the means of arousing the attention of all capitalists to the West.  Thousands believed that the Klondyke  strikes were made in British Colum-  -bia; at any rate they found out some-  - thing about our Province in looking up  Klondyke, with its great alluvial gold  deposits, just to the north of us.  And now they will learn of the. wonderful development in British Colum-  , bia gold, copper and silver quartz  mines. They are yet generally very  ignorant about the extent of British  Columbia, and when told that it is  seven times as large as England and  two thirds larger than the German  Empire, it is a great surprise to them.  In this letter I only just refer to my  trip abroad. In the following ones I  have no intention   whatever   to   copy  from any of histories     They need  no boasting to increase their population; they Have no territory to explore;,  and their population is increasing by  leaps and bounds. Those who want to  see the world, and can afford it, should  by all means see the British Iiles and  r 'France. I feel that [ had scarcely-  known what life is, in all it phases,  until I h-id seen these lands. There  are millions of rich people, and which  extremes in this respect meet. The  poor are in the majority. We want  the former to assist in opening up our  vast mineral resources, covering many  thousand square miles. Capital will  make room for labor then we can offer  employment to millions of the hardy  toilers,, who now work long hours for  small pay. Nothing but the truth  need be told about British Columbia,  and as soon as it is known across the  - Atlantic we will have our innings. " 1  must speak of conditions as I found  them in Europe.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company are doing ten times more than all  agencies combined to advertise British  Columbia in the British Isles,'and they  never get a thank you   for   it.     They  Are called a grasping monopoly !   True  -while they are advertising our country  they are making  business   for   themselves; but the fact remains, that their  agencies are practically the only   ones  that we have in Great Britain.   In  all  the great cities I visited, from Glasgow,  Scotland, southward through England,  and over to Paris, they   have   secured,  regardless of cost large offices   in   the  heart of the countries.   Their   officials  are all bright,   farseeing men.     They  extend the glad  hand   to  every   man  and   women   who   step  within   their  doors.   Peter R. Richie, of Vancouver,  was my travelling companion when we  landed at Liverpool last June.   Neither  of us had a letter of  introduction,   or  even a card to   the   Canadian   Pacific  officials there. ' We saw   the   familiar  sign, at St. James   street: and   walked  in.    We will never forget the welcome  we received.     J.  H.   B.   Evans,   the  manager is a veritable prince, and has  hosts of friends.   Through him we met  many   of  Liverpool's   foremost  men,  and, in a word, saw the best  of  Liverpool in a short time.   It was like going  into one of our best   offices,   for  they  had the latest news, and talked of Van-^  couver as if-it were Birkenhead, across  the Mersey.   The C. P. R. officials   are  ���������men acquainted with Canada, and they  take a pride in proclaiming its   advantages.   I will have considerable to say  .about the  London   and   other   offices  later.   Just allow me to end this letter  ���������with a brief  references   to   our   own  British Columbia.  Cross the continent of America   on  Any railway you wish; then the Atlantic ocean, and see the old world   in all  its   beauty,   wealth   and   pomp   and  power, and you can more fully  appreciate the beauty of our   fair   western  Province.   The Creator ha.s given   us  great lakes, and rivers, and harbors unsurpassed; lovely valleys, vast  forests,  and mighty  mountains,  whose   summits cleave the sky, where the  eternal  green glaciers ever lie, in   clouds   and  darkness, or  glitter in   the   sunlight.  Where high peaks aro clad in everlasting whiteness, or whore the glittering  granite shines like gold in the   Klondyke.   We have nearly every   variety  of climate that can be   wished   for���������  even by women.   Our rivers and  lakes  are teeming with fish; we   possess, the  largest coal deposits known, and   precious minprals that are just now attracting the iattentionslof all nations.   Just  think of it.     With all  our   resources  and vast extent of territory our   entire  population is only about 150,000,   less  than one-fifth the population 'of  the  . City of London !   We are yet   in   our  swaddling clothes.   Comparatively few  ���������Canadians have ever seen  British   Columbia; but they are talking about our  "sea of mountains" from-the   eastern  foothills of the Rockies to the Gulf of  St. Lawrence.   They are talking about  mountainous land beyond   the   Atlan:  tic sea, 6,000 miles away,; in   humble  homes, and in the grand   mansions   of  the largest city in the world.   The year  of 1898 will be record-breaking one in  our young history. Many thousands  are coming from abroad to Canada's  Switzerland where they will remain, or  outfit in Vancouver and Victoria and  go farther northward. They are coming to seek fortunes, to give their toil  and labor for our gold and silver ! They  have purposed in their, hearts to become rich, and, although some will  meet with disappointment, they will  all have a treat,in store forthem. For  if old England could secure Bome of  the scenery that God has given us, and  wall it in���������for they have no fences  there���������she could readily get two shillings a minute from several millions  of her people, just for the privilege of  seeing-its granduer. They will see as  they are carried over Canada's National highway, from the Red River of the  north to the Rocky mountains, a glorious rolling and prairie land, and from  where the great high mountain peaks  first tower into the blue they will ride  600 miles westward, crossing and re-  crossing great rivers, and mountain  torrents, and skirting beautiful lakes,  where,  In their crystal deeps inverted  Swings a picture of the sky.  After they are carried through the  bewildering panorama of mountains,  in elegant railway coaches, they will,  I am sure, admit that they have received full value for all the cost. And  after engineering from the deep canyons of the treacherous Eraser into  the broad open, as coming through the  purple gates of morning, they will step  ashore at bright Vancouver, the terminus, view the finest harbor in all  America, feel the mild breeze from the  Japan current, and perhaps first visit  Stanley Park, to see its big trees 300 j  feet high, and its tangled thicket,  climbing moss and trailing vine, or  one of the majestic white Empresses,  as she lies, waiting for the hawsers to  let her free, from Canada's western  gateway, to crojs the broad Pacific.���������J.

Berlin, Nov. 13.���������The visit of Count  Goiuchowsky, the minieter of foreign  affairs to King Humbeit at Monza and  its attendant circumstances, are regarded in German political circles as  being of the highest importance. The  Conservative and agrarian newspapers  interpret the visit as meaning a closer  understanding between Austro-Hun-  gary and Italy, and a leaning of those  two powers toward Great Britain.  An old diplomat of Berlin, who belongs to one of the Dreibund powers  said to the correspondent: "Austria  disproves of Emperor William's foreign  policy as far as Fngland is, concerned,  and the needless provocation of England contained in that famous message  to President Kruger has been seriously,  if silently, condemned by Austria^  statesmen. The same is true of Italy.  Both Italy's and Austria's Mediterranean interested are of vast and far-  reaching importance, and they cannot  be suhierved so long as there is a latent antagonism against Italy as a  feature of the dreibund policy. An  entente closer than has ever existed  has been established between Italy and  Austria so far as their -Oriental and  Mediterranean interests arr'concerned,  and this means a consonance of their  interests with England in that respect.  To that extent then the dreibund has  been weakened and Germany has been  weakened and Germany has been left  to follow her own oriental and colonial  policy at the side of Russia and France.  It does not mean the breaking up of  the dreibund, but the ire-shaping of interests to some extent outside of it."  The official newspapers are silent on  the subject, but the editor of one of the  leading government papers said : "We  are still waiting for our cue from  above."-  Thc Deacon's Prayer for Rain.

The fields were parched. Unless  rain came soon the crops would be  ruined. They were no rainmakers in  those days, says the Chicago news, and  still depended upon heaven. In this  extremity a prayer meeting was appointed and the little congregation  gatered to pray for rain. The restless  teams were hitched in the sheds ahout  the little church, and every now and  then a long-drawn screech from a  cramped vehicle came into the quiet  of the meeting. The oil limps smoked  and added their odor to the stifling air.  They prayed for rain. The tall, spare  form of Deacon Rogers rose. He pushed hiB steel-bowed glasses up on to his  forehead, clasped his hands behind his  back and raised his white facie appeal-  ingly to heaven. He trusted Providence implicitly and yet it was vital  that this/should be the right kind of a  storm. No slight shower could relieve  the condition of things. It must be a  sort of a small and lingering deluge,  so:!  "Oh, Lord," suggested Deacon Rogers, in plaintive tones; "Oh, Lord, den't  let it come down with a slash an' a.  dash an' then all run off ag'in.

At Rossland the other  day Mr. Sifton, in : a speech, foreshadowed the appointment of a minister of mines. Certainly mining is an  important interest in Canada, hutwhy  not place one of the present nothing-  to-do ministers iii charge and dispense  with his present post? Canada with  its 5.000,000 of people only has sixteen  ministers,1 while the United States  with twelve timea that population, has  but eight ministers, and Mr. Sifton  wants more for Canada.  Mr. Field,_ of the Wonderful mine,  told a Review representative yesterday that all the. vitality recently given  to differences at a meeting of shareholders in Spokane, some time ago,  was altogether uncalled for, as they  wi^re only the objections of a small  minority holders- tit the best, the'majority being a satisfied unit ,as to the  past operrtions of the mine. He says  that at the last meeting no new directors were appointed, so the old ones  wilh'act until a full representation can  be got later op, when work will go on  at the mine as heretofore. There is  not a great deal of mining being done,  and n:uch will not be done until anew  board is fully organized.  Hi  KASLO.  SANDON.  SiiSSW'^f!5'"  W^gs0&"  SILVERWARE  In endless variety.
