If Mr. Cotton the Finance Minister, is correctly reported,  i we are inclined to think that his methods will  not meet with much favor in financial circles  m London.    Mr. Cotton calculated that he  should get at least ��94 for this loan,   which,  after deducting expenses, would bring   the  price to ��92.5 per cent.     We are told, however,, that he may not issue  this    new   three  per cent, loan in the usual   way.   The   Loan  ; Bill gives him power to raise it either by in-'  w&fe .^���iB��d   8tock  ��r debentures;     Mr. Cotton  Igg-pinks he can place quite a considerable sum  j8H&n   internal   dentures,   and, he. remarks,  lf$��;�����shall be able to get more money than we  ^Ir^hould by, selling stock in London.   We do'  ^rf: not pledge ourselves to do that, but we take  m$:Xthe^powerto.-make use of either or both of  |^T.   these means."   We can only.say that,.in our  ^.^udgment, if the power given by the bill is ex-  i��yY<fCI8ed>a^ri<!iUBmi8t'ake will be committed..  In the first place, previous experience shows  that it is futile to expect to raise money io-  m^ cally, and Mr. Turner's plan of merging the  provincial loans into one class of stock is far  .-preferable to the proposal, now. put'forward  Tty inscribed stock system instituted by Mr.  -Turner-has been so eminently successful, that  it would be injudicious to revert   to the" internal debentures�� suggested by the Finance  Minister.,    Mr. Cotton will   probably   visit  this  country   ih .connection   with the proposed loan, and he will then doubtless becon-  yiucea of the wisdom of raising  the whoie of  the money in London in; the shape of three  per cent, inscribed stock.    ,  west is handed over to the Americans, and  the mills of British Columbia are being closed  down or heavily handicapped and restricted  ' in their trade.. This is due to the keen competition in railway  rates on the American  side of the line, which enables the lumbermen  of Washington arid Oregon, favored by the advantage of a free market, to place their product in the Canadian Northwest,, at prices  with which Canadian lumbermeaeannot compete."  i _  If the Minister of Mines is desirous of learning what his constituents think of him, he  should drop in while the miners of Ymir are  holding one of their union meetings.  &<lfY  i\?*f,  ,vv "v1  J'  f$hl<  Postal arrangements in the Kootenay" are  gradually growing worse.

Their  mines are  pouring  out wealth by the millions.     Fort Steele had  one boom in the early sixties, and the  motfn-  tains and streams which  added  nearlv $30 -  000,000' to the  world's  wealth, have^ since  that time, been prospected to find  the source  from which poured the golden  stream.     The  result has been that  the intrepid  prospector  has unearthed large deposits of  the  precious  and   useful   minerals.      So persistent  have  been his efforts that attention" is  being attracted  to  the district,  and  the prevailing  belief is, that; in ,ime,   the   mineral  output  will far exceed that   of  any   other   part   of  British Columbia.

J. C  McLagan, on the disadvantages under  which  the lumber trade of  British Columbia is laboring owing to the inequitable tariff arrangement, that paper says:    "Mr.   McLagan is a  .free trader, but in.comraon with most impar-  tialmen who have given the Subject consideration, he recognizes-the  anomaly of allowing  lumber from the United Stated to be  brought  into this country free while the United States  imposes a  heavy duty on Canadian lumber  shingles and lath.   The delegation from British Columbia which interviewed  the government last week placed the case very clearly a��  does also Mr. McL.gan in  the let'ter referred  to.   It is difficult to see how  the government  can avoid acting, in pursuance of the logic of  of such facts.

Within the past   month  the correspondent of the Toronto  Globe has  [ beezi conducting a very  vigorous whitewashing tournament so that many practically confessed sinners are now  masquerading  in the  flowing robes of the saints.     Much of the defence bears  the impress of the home office  .artist, and is moulded  in  keeping with the  moves on the political chess board at Ottawa.  Whether the machine will be able to turn  down the independent Liberal remains to be  seen, but signs are not wanting says Jhe  Ottawa Citizen, llmt Mr. Bichardson's viewf of  the government's backsliding on the t&ntt  question is shared by the large body of the Liberal electorate in the prairie province.

The Geological Survey of Canada reports  the value of mineral production in Canada  for 1898 at $37,757,197. - This is an increase  of nearly 32 per cent over 1897. Canada is  making rapid strides as a mineral producer.  The Toronto Telegram says, there was less of  wrath of a strong man than of the hysterics of a vain man in Sir Wilfrid Laurier'*  style of reply to Sir Charles Tapper.   Certain  Liberal journals talk as if, there was nothing  left for the veteran to do. but shrivel up and  fade away er die.   The truth is that Sir Wilfrid'* anger did not interfere with the sleep or  meali of the Opposition leader.; The Premier  roared and strutted and fumed entirely at the  expense of his own public character.   The  flatterers who tell Sir Wilfrid Laurier that all  the mouthings of an obviously angry man  can strengthen a leader in the affections of the  Canadian people, are deceiving him.   Canada's political   history is full of precedents  which  justify the outbreak   of Sir Wilfrid  Lauritr.   A country tired of the precedents  and tired of the politicians who made ��� them,  welcomed the parliamentary style of Laurier  as a blessed change of weather.   The morning,  of his strength seems to have been overcast by  the clouds of windy, blustering pride.   The  orator has fallen away from his high ideals to  feed his vanity on the praises of flatterers  who ttll him that he can win an improved  reputation by losing his temper.  comfort becomes a matter of the utmost  to share.   To one who has not become ^ard-  ened by an extended course of reading in sensational journals, there is something extemely  revolting in this sentimental sympathy ex-  pressed for creatures whose only claim to no-  tonety is the fact that the brute has triumphed  over the human in their natures.   What this  country needs in the treatment of itscriminals  is a little of the common sense that the people  use in the affairs of every-day life.   It makes  no difference whether a criminal is a victim  of a mental disorder that renders him incapable  of distinguishing   between  right   and  wrong, or is merely a worthless scoundrel,  who, knowing better, seeks to profit by the industry of others.   Ineithercase,heis a menace to society and an enemy to every law-abid-^  ing citizen.   He is no more entitled to^ sympathy than the wild beast that springs upon  his victim unawares.   He has amply earned  his punishment, and should receiveit in full  measure. .,.  ���/>AnA  K'lji-  AA ft/  ll  ' 'f-ii-j fagl  -  ~J   t    ^rfl./fCl  ��     "ait   ���,<  jr I'iinp.iiW  Custom house officials at Tacoma report unusually large importations of foreign liquors  from British Columbia. Nearly every steamier brings a large consignment form Victoria.  Nearly all the high-grade wines, champagnes  and whiskies sold in Tacoma are imported in  this way instead of by Amtriean dealers  through New York.  Here is an instance which helps to illustrate  the greater attention that is being paid to gold  mining. In 1896 the gold output of Western  Australia for the months of January and February was 34,722 ounces having a value of  *695,GQ0. For the corresponding months of  th�� present year the output of gold was 210,-  645 ou��ces having a value of $4,212,900.  There is an increase worth noting. From  $695,000 for two months in 1896 to $4,212,900  for the corresponding two months in 1899  gives an excellent illustration of how mining  for gold is being carried on in the present day.  The early closing movement will go into  force on or about May 1. Nearly all the retail dealers have agreed to close at 7 o'clock,  the hardware trade having decided to stop  business at 6:30. This gives not only the  clerks in the stores but the proprietors as well  an opportunity of getting a little healthy recreation.

If Mr. Cotton the Finance Minister, is correctly reported,  ;( we are inclined to think that his methods will  not meet wish much favor in financial circles  in London.    Mr. Cotton calculated that he  should get at least ��94 for this loan,   which,  after deducting expenses, would bring   the  price to ��92.5 per cent.     We are  told, however, that he may not issue  this    new   three  per cent, loan in the usual  way.   The   Loan  ^;.  , Bill gives him power to raise it either by in-  "^:^lbed   8t��ck   or  deben tures,   , Mr. Cotton  ^^hinkshe can place; quite a considerable sum  jgg��w   internal   debentures,   and, he', remarks, j  figgS*.,, we shall be able to get more; money than we  P|VC-^hould; by selling stock in London.    We do  ^V^n^ Pledge ourselves to do that, but we take  ^t   the power to make use: of either or both of  Kfv> these means."   We can only say that, in our  |^ ^judgment, if the power given by the bill is ex-  M^ zeroised, a serious mistake will be committed.  ?n;the %** Place, previous experience shows  that it is futile to expect to raise money locally, and Mr. Turner's plan,of merging- the  provincial loans into one class of stock is far  ^preferable to the proposal, now put forward.  The inscribed stock system instituted by Mr.  -Turner has been so eminently successful, that  it would be injudicious to revert   to the u internal debentures �� suggested by the Finance  ^mister.     Mr. Cotton will   probably   visit  this  country   ih.connection   with the proposed loan, and he-will then doubtless be convinced of the wisdom of- raising  the who'le of  the money in London in the shape of three  per cent, inscribed stock.  west is handed over to the Americans, and  the mills of British Columbia are being closed  down or heavily handicapped and restricted  in their trade.. This is due to the keen competition in railway  rates on the American  side of the line, which enables the lumbermen  of Washington arid Oregon, favored by the advantage of a free market, to place their product in the Canadian Northwest*at prices  with which Canadian lumbermeryjannot compete."

It seems that the  new  settlers use rather primitive methods in  till-  wg their farms,   methods , that   will   hardly  answer in   their   present  habitations.    The  time for beginning the spring ploughing is.at  hand, and the Anglo-Saxon plough of the present day is,iin the estimation of.the  doughty  "Douk," a fearful and wonderful implement.

V  h  H  ft  9a* x  Commenting on a letter  that recently an-  peared in the Ottawa Citizen, from Mr. J. C.  McLagan, on the disadvantages under  which  the lumber trade of  British Columbia is laboring owing to the inequitable tariff arrangement, that paper says:   "Mr.   McLagan is a  free trader, but incomraon with most impar-  tial men who have given the Subject consideration, he recognizes the  anomaly of allowing  dumber from the United Stalest to be  brought  . into this country free while the  United States  imposes a  heavy duty on  Canadian lumber  shingles and lath.    The delegation from Brit'  ish Columbia which interviewed  the government last week placed the cage very clearly, a��  does also Mr. McL.gan in  the letter referred  to.

Canada is  making rapid strides as a mineral producer.  The Toronto TeUgram says there was less of  wrath of a strong man than of the hysterics of a vain man in Sir Wilfrid Laurier's  style of reply to Sir Charles Tapper.   Certain  Liberal journals talk as if there was nothing  left for the veteran to do but shrivel up and  fade away er die.   The truth is that Sir Wil-  frid'a anger did not interfere with the sleep or  meals of the Opposition leader.   The Premier  roared and strutted and fumed entirely at the  expense of bis own public character.   The  flatterers who tell Sir Wilfrid Laurier that all  the mouthings of an obviously angry man  can strengthen a leader in the affections of the  Canadian people, are deceiving^him.   Canada's political   history is hit of "precedents  which  justify the outbreak   of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier.   A country  tired of the precedents  and tired of the politicians who made, them,  welcomed the parliamentary style of * Laurier  as a blessed change of weather.   The morning  of his strength seems to have been overcast by  the clouds of windy, blustering pride.   The  orator has fallen away from his high ideals to  feed his vanity on  the praises of flatterers  who tell him that he can win, an improved  reputation by losing his temper.  to^ comfort becomes a matter of the utmost  ��^'b whl*U. victims are ����Z  to share.   To one who has not become hard-  ened by an extended course of reading in sen-  wtional journals, there is something extemely  revolting m this sentimental sympathy expressed for creatures whose only claim to no-  tonety is the fact that the brute has triumphed  over the human in their natures.   What this  country needs in the treatment of its criminals  is a httle of the common sense that the people  use in the affairs of cvery-day life.   It makes  no difference whether a criminal is a victim  of a mental disorder that renders him incapable  of distinguishing  between   right   and  wrong, or is merely a worthless scoundrel,  who, knowing better, seeks to profit by the in-  dustry of others.   In either case, he is a menace to society and an enemy to every law-abiding citizen.   He it no more entitled to"1 sympathy than the wild beast that springs upon  his victim unawares.   He has amply earned  his punishment, and should receive it in full  measure. *-  Custom house officials at Tacoma report unusually large importations of foreign liquors  from British Columbia. Nearly every steamer brings a large consignment form Victoria.  Nearly all the high-grade wines; champagnes  and whiskies sold in Tacoma are imported in  this way instead of by American dealers  through New York.  The early closing movement will go into  force on or about May 1. Nearly all the retail dealers have agreed to close at 7 o'clock,  the, hard ware trade having decided to stop  business at 6:30. This gives not only the  clerks in the stores but the proprietors as well  an opportunity of getting a little healthy recreation.  V  Here is an instance which helps to illustrate  the greater attention that is being paid to gold  fining. In 1896 the gold output of Western  Australia for the months of January and February was 34,722 ounces having a value of  $695,000. For the corresponding months of  th�� present year the output of gold was 210,-  <>45 ounces having a value of $4,212,900.  there is an increase worth noting. From  ��695,000 for two months in 1896 to $4,212,900  for the corresponding two months in 1899  gives an excellent illustration of how mining  for gold is bemg carried on in the present day.  eomaa  The demoralising and debasing influence  the spirit of sensationalism in the daily  18 seen in nothing more clearly ifear in h&  feet upon the newspaper writers them  They come to look upon th�� world from  preverted point of view, and to measure  ^orth of people by their news value.   ri  �� ^h�� criminal becomes to them a profitable  8��n, because he furnishes "good news,"  The eight-hour law has been suspended,  but not before considerable damage was  caused to the mining interests of the Slocan.
