Long past the age  when  life possesses allurements for man, he is yet full  of  lire and determination which have carried  him   tri~  umphautlv. through   manv  a   hard   fought   battle.  Years Ik?fore the  confederation of the   Provinces  of  British   North   America   into  one   Dominion,   Sir  Charles Tapper was playing leading parts on the political stage of Nova Scotif\ and to his great force of  character  may  !>e  attributed  the   bringing of  the  Mariti me Pro vinces Into  Con federation.    Since Con -  federation became an accomplished   fact, on July ��� 1,'  1S6.7, with the exception of a  few years devoted to  the services of his country as High Commissioner for  Canada   at   London,   he has participated in   every  election campaign and has always been   found where  the   bullets were   falling   thickest.     To-day, at the  advanced   age   of 79*   he is guarding his armor   for  another struggle, perhaps the last   in the life of   this  grand old statesman.  If Sir Charles Tapper had not devoted his life to  politics, he might have become a great evangelist, in  which latter capacity he would have led men to drink  of the waters of life freely. He carries conviction to  the minds of his listeners, and makes points, not by  abusing the enemy, but rather by expatiating upon  the honesty of his friends. In repose, Sir Charles  has a countenance verging upon the austere, but this  vanishes the moment he addresses you. Of an impetuous nature, he is even at his present advanced age  quick of apprehension, with a strong aspiring bent  for action in great affairs. Withal, his manners have  all the fascination of gentlemen ofthe old school.  Age  may have toned down the .vigor-with which of old  he was accustomed to deal with his opponents, but at  times the eye flashes, the face illumines and he  clenches his hand as he deals his political opponents  the knock-out blow. The historian''of the future who  undertakes to write the life of Sir 'Charles Tupper  will find material enough to ma:ke an interesting  book.  In his address at the Opera House, last Friday, Sir  Charles indulged in ancient history at great length. So  far from detracting from the interest of the story, we  believe it rather lent it additional force. The policy  of the Liberal Conservative party of Canada has not  changed since its inception, and it was to brin*out  this strong fact that the speaker went back beyond  the middle of the present century to discuss the  questions of those days. The interesting story of  the Liberal party from 1873 till 1878 conhot be  told too often, and possesses marked similitude to the  record which that party is again making for itself. It  was a period of broken promises, political jobbery, like  the building of the Fort Francis locks, and is duplicated in the -unfulfilled promises ol: to-day"-, and the corrupt administration of affairs in the Yukon and other  portions of Canada. It is the old, old story, and no  man knows better how to tell it than Sir Charles  Tupper, Bart.  Sir Charles Tupper's speech was a comprehensive  review of the condition of affairs in Canada at the  present time. He pointed out wherein the Liberal  party had broken faith with the people, and contrasted this with the firm adherence" to principle of the  party of which he is the leader Particularly striking was his elucidation of the tariff policy of the present Government. The shameless hypocrisy of Sir Wilfrid Laurier in abandoning the recognized policy of his  party and the filching from the Conservative party its  policy of protection was dwelt upon at-length, but in  a convincing manner, with facts and figures to substantiate everything alleged.  The question of the respective expenditures of the  present Liberal Government and the Conservative  Government was dealt with, and it was shown  that for the year 1896, the Conservative expenditures  were about $42,000,000, while the expenditures by  Sir Wilfrid Lauder's Government were going up by  leaps and bounds from year to yer��r and the estimates  for tgoo were such as to induce   the conclusion   that  ya  ft  .     ������'.���'��� .���"J:"i.''!-',:";'V.  m  if  T-ip  ',.��.;--B  /''j&  m  r  'H  Si'*'  ''P  m  i#l  ^.����*M^M!*a^^  fit  II  m  m  3 m  S\  1 Is*  m  :v_li  'fffl  if?  r&fi  yii E* ;  $?��  R M  PI  111  K *���!  p1  i'fi  111  r   ?^  t'i*  F'$  in W,  t-11  Bl  M  rl  r ^j,  JS*<  ^ < i  plj  ii  & lf  b��  K5|  ul  gj]  r��jB  nl  Pf  N  1 -.

This was the '" tariff reform" policy preached in and  out of season hv the Liberals.  Perhaps of the subjects discussed by Sir Charles, the  one that interested his listeners more than any   other  was the question of the introduction of Federal party  lines in Provincial contests.     We quote the   remarks  of   the   leader  on the   question, as   reported by the  Tribune,:  "It had to be admitted in the outset in   discussing  the matter of party lines   that, so far: as the Liber *b  Conservative  part}* of  Canada was   concerned,   the.  adoption of party lines in provincial contents was not  a matter of choice.     It was not even a   matter which  could-be fairly.considered as open   to argument.      It  was not; a question upon which the party could decide  to take one  side or   the other.      Party lines iu   provincial   contests had to he   adopted by the Conservatives as a "matter of  abolute necessity.     The govern  ment of  the   Dominion of Canada was now in   the  hands of the Liberal party, and so far as  possible the  attempt was being made to link the several provincial  administrations from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the  federal administration at Ottawa     The condition was  such that unless the Liberal-Conservative party   was  content   to.be wiped, out of-existence it-would h.ive  to adopt party   lines.     Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier   is endeavoring to unite in one solid phalanx~ali   "the 1��km1  or provincial administrations with the federal government at, Ottawa...      Du ring  t fie last   generaI elections  in   the   province of Ontario  ue   had called   to   the  electors from the hustings to come to  the rescue and  sustain the Hardy government   because   he regarded  it as his strong   right arm.     To sustain the    Liberal  government at Ottawa  every man was summoned,   to  come to the rescue and fight the battle of the Liberal  party leader of the   Conservatives of   the province u\  the local contest in the the   province of Ontario     In  th_ li:i 0/   taii    i:.i > 1.   .v i_U:f -c-.n   0 ) H:rv aiivc  party liked  it   or not. they would   be compelled   to  adopt this course or submit to   an   overwhelming defeat.     When the result was made known-in Ontario,  although all the influence ofthe federal   government  was thrown into   the   scale,    it - was found that   the  strong right   arm   of the government, to   whicli  Sir  Wilfrid Laurier had   referred, was   paralyzed.      The  party which for twenty   years had an    overwhelming  majority was struck   down so that it    has since Seen  struggling for existence, and at the present moment is  tottering to its fall/'  From every point of view, the visit of Sir Charles  Tupper to Nelson was eminently satisfactory. It  aroused interest in the political issues ofthe daw  which is in itself a worthy consummation ; and it demonstrated that the Conservatives in Nelson are over-  whelmingly in preponderance as regards numbers. A  few months ago, Hon. Sydney Fisher, Minister of  Agriculture in the Liberal Cabinet, and Mr. Bostock  addressed a meeting in Nelson, and the attendance  numbered scarcely half a hundred. On the occasion  of Sir Chailes 'fuppers visit, nearly eight hundred  were present and hundreds more were turned away  from the door, being unable to gain admittance.  This is one of the straws that indicates the direction  iu which the   people's thoughts are running.  Thk Tribune of last Saturday morning contained an  interview   with   Sir Hibhert   Tupper,  to   which   is  attached more than 'ordinary importance. We refer  to the position of the Conservative party on the eight-  hour law. Sir Htbbert said, acordtiig to the interview, that the Conservative party- not' only endorsed  the eight-hour law, but the principle of it as well, and  intended to stand firm on this plank ofthe platform  promulgated at the' New Westminister convention.  This will probably he the leading, issue in the next  campaign, and.it is worth noting that the Conservative party stands committed to the eight-hour law.  .- 'ft"    HJWSflW  -J-MKHto* ..

'ITn; Economist has' Ikcu firm in its  belief that Aid Fletcher should win o�� his merits.  What is -.needed in Nelson at the present time is a  business council with, a strong 'man to. guide it over  the shoals. Such a man is Aid. Fletcher. Tic n<iS  admirable business capacity, and is well versed in the  theory and practice of municipal government He i*  a safe man, and can be depended upon to give tne  citv a stronsr business.administration.  But it will not be enough   that the   citizens   place  Mr. Fletcher at  the    head of civic affairs.    ' He must-  be given a business   council    who   will   "share   the  responsibility   ofthe civic   administration.'*     Many  names are   alreadv discussed in   this   connection, ami  IM. ���1  f    ''  lyyy  iyyy THE NELSON ECONOMIST  Im  r  there is no room to fear that the people will be  restricted to a small field in making their choice.  With a council composed of such men as have al-  ieady eosented to run, the citizens can feel  assured that the next Board will conduct the affairs  of the city on strictly business principles, and in the  present stage in her history, it is a business council  Nelson needs. The retiring council has done well,  and there is reason to !>elieve that the next Board  wil/ Ik equally as patriotic in discharging their duty.  When it is stated that buildings to the aporoxi-  mate value $300,000-were. ��� erected in Nelson during  the year just closed, the outside world can form some  idea, ofthe progress ofthe Kootenay metiopolis.  These buildings are all of the most substantial  character andTuay be said to be monuments of the  faith the people have in the future of the city. Take  those business- blocks along Baker street! What  Mthcr city of the same population on this continent  caivshowas its contribution" to the year's progress  business blocks to the same .number and value as  those that have been '.built on our principal business  street this year ? Not one. The beauty'of the residences is also another source of eongratulaton. It is  the best evidence that the people are building with  tiie intention of ��� establishing here their permanent  homes. It is little wonder that visitors to Nelson  oe surprised at the gr.tudcur of the city.

If the British Government had a few more generals  like French, the Boers would find almost any kind of  u'ork a -pleasant pastime compared with war.  It speaks we'll for the patriotism of our business  "icn that such men as Mr. Chris. Morrison are will-  mg los-icrilice their time to the city's interests Mr.  -wornson has had considerable experience in. municipal matters, and his presence on the next council  board will be a.distinct gain to the city.  Should * .Blake"'Wilson consent to run for the  East Ward, his election will be only a question of  counting the votes  I he war in. the Transvaal is the absorbing topic of  conversation in Hongkong at present, and considerable indignation has been aroused by the action of  some Germans a few evenings ago, who, at a dinner  m their club, proposed and enthusiastically drank the  health of President Krueer. As residents of a British  colony, enjoying the rights, privileges and protection  accorded to British subjects, they certainly cannot be  ��� ��� " ^ ' ���. ���  congratulated for this display of most exceedingly  bad taste ; and it is understood that the gentlemen  members are about to take some action with a view to  preventing a recurrence of such an act of palpable discourtesy to the English comiiiunity in which they  live.  If John Matheson, the barber, gets elected for alderman, it will be by a close shave.  The incorporation of the Panama Canal Company  of America is said to be the first step in a plan to  transfer the Panama Canal to Americans in order  that it may have a better chance to struggle with the  American concessionaries. Over $200,0000,000 in  French capital has been spent on this great work,  and while undoubtedly the greater portion was  wasted or stolen, still manv millions found its wav  intoThe construction of this great ditch. Then the  original company failed, and one of the greatest financial scandals of the country became public property.  A new company was organized in 1894, and since  that time about $8,000,000 more has been put into  the work. This amount, it is claimed, has been honestly spent, and it is estimated thpt the canal is now  about two-filths completed. About $ic>o,ooo,ooo  more, it is believed, will finish the work.  It will-be noticed that neither Gen. Roberts nor  Gen. Kitchener have made any statements that directly or indirectly intimate that they wiil*eat dinner  on any particular day in Pretoria.  Among the names mentioned in connection with  aldermanic honors are : Chris. Morrison, W. J.  Wilson, William Irvine, Theodore Madson, A. Fer-  land, J. A. Irving, Dr. Arthur, Thomas Madden,  and Hamilton Byers. Here is a grand array of talent from which to select city fathers.  The Canadians have been in action for the first time,  and, as was expected, they proved themselves worthy  representatives of ' The land of the maple leaf."  Nothing has been heard from the Rocky Mountain  Raneers, but thev will have a brush with the Boers  all in good time.  In choosing aldermen, precaution should be taken  to select men who will stand for Nelson first, last and  all the time.  A call has been made for 1500 more Canadians,  and still some people think Canada won Id not be able  to protect herself in-the event of war.  The firm of M, DesBrisay & Co has been changed  into a limited liability company and will be known in  future as the Western Mercantile Company, limited.  The public will be pleased to learn that the management will remain unchanged.  WH  w  Km  If  'W,  if  4  Iff  Ml  'f  tfi  4,1  ' -IS  ill  'tz&s&mrx  ?rr^wrrw<r^rTw^^  %,n%$?.

In some places it is for the purpose of municipal government that, people-select their  .'"representatives "'and,, in other departments, too, a  choice made of such as are eligible to-be placed in  positions of trust. Unfortunately, however, in many  localities, as concerns municipal institutions particularly, enough store is not set upon them, and people  are allowed to go in pretty much as they please, since,  although there may be numerous candidates, the best  men do not always come out. They do not set  sufficient store upon the importance of business mtn  attending to the affairs of their fellow citizens, It  may be said that provided they have property qualifications, almost any one will'do, since they will not  be likely to go far astray, they having-financial interests at stake, which they will not feel disposed to  imperil. This may be all very well as far as it goes;  but on the one baud the municipal representative,  even though he be adequately qualified from a property point of view, may, on the other hand, be'disposed to be too narrow in bis ideas, and therefore be  indisposed to incur needed expenditures, because he  fears that the incidence of taxation will be too heavy ;  while, on the other, his ideas may be far and away  ahead of his times or of the views of those with whom  he is associated. Stilbthe latter is on this account in  no way unfitted for the post of a municipal politician.  What, however, above all in public affairs is  absolutely required, is more business men���who have  not only material interests in bricks and mortar and  town lots, but who are in engaged in that active commercial life which keeps them and their resources in  continuous circulation. They are, on this account,  better fitted than anyone else for this department of  active life. It may be said that it is always well to  have real estate adequately represented, to have a  lawyer on the Council Board aud possibb to have a  contractor who knows something about how public  works and improvements are carried on. So it may  be, and doubtless is, but there is and has been such a  thing as having too much of a good tiling  rr  Upon the proper administration of public affairs,  depends very much of the business life of a city, and  it is to be hoped that capital and industry will ix��th  of them pay more attention to these things and demonstrate that though their hooks and ledgers and  their workshops are, iu their estimation, of very great  importance, they do not render it impossible for them  to pay some attention to those concerns in which  the entire community is interested.

This,  savs  ;m observer  of  our   state, shows "that we have not  vet completed the first step towards decent civilization,  rHi that the elementary struggle   against   savagery  has to   be  fought still."     Well so be it     At least,  when.a mail   kicks your skull   in he is   making his  intentions -.plainly understood ;   he cannot be-said- to  be assuming a virtue which he has not,  and he   will  nay the price for his amusement.     But when  a man  onus to you with a   smug face and pious   words.on  his tongue,; .and.   undercover   ofthe   Bible puts his  hand iu,your,purse or   abducts your daughter, you  are. more  pitiably a victim.     For, unless   you are  prepared to   deny goodness in all men, you have   no  safeguard against a snake.     Vou may put your heel  on his head once he has bitten you ;   but the   poison  will still do its work.     Better far .that' we be   rough  and rude than a smooth  and deceitful  people.     Up  to a certain point we are all humbugs ���;.  we must be.  We cannot expose our inmost souls to everyone;   we  are bound to conceal  something.     Every day politeness between''  man and man is often mere   humbug;  but it is forgiven,   as something that lubricates   and  does   not injure.     But  when   humbug passes from  concealment of that which   concerns nobody to   the  parade  of qualitits" for -the purpose of Imposing on  everybody- it does become dangerous.     The  habit of  appraising a man's   goodness by the number of times  he goes to church, and his wickedness by the number  of times he goes-to the  racecourse,   puts a   premium  on hypocrisy.     But though Cant thieves   all   round  us, and grows lustily, I  appeal to people who try   to  be good without making a song   about it, and I urge  them not to put faith in. a man because ofthe   length  of his prayers, nor to distrust a man Ixxause he keeps  a whisky stand on his side board.     if they are wise,  that   is the lesson the hypocrite will teach them, and  they will not think me dangerous when I say I would  rather belong' to a   race of-uncivilised "savages,- who  merely hit their neighbor on the head when they hate  him,   than   to feign  goodness  but  accomplish each  other's undoing  1 have been informed that.it is Manager Annable's  intention to keep the Opera House open every night  during the remaining winter mouths. With this end  in view lie will'.make an effort to lonii a stock company, capable of producing the best melodramas, interspersed with specialties. If the Opera House management follows out this idea on modern lines, the  undertaking will probably prove successful. Nelson  lias a large enough population to support a stocK organization, and will, probably do so, providing the  right kind of productions are given. Patrons of the  theatre sooner or later growtired of a surfeit of one  hind of amusement, and in order.to keep the appetite  m a.proper condition, varietv is absolutely necessary.  The WillS. Rising Comedy and vaudeville Company, now filling a short engagement at the Opera  Mouse, in many respects, o'ives a highly appreciative  entertainment.    There are  many specialties that de  serve special mention. Mr. Rising shows a desire to  .win by his really hard work, as does also Miss  Kimble. Mr. Rising and Miss Kimble were here  last spring with the Metropolitan Opera Company  and made many friends, who gave both an ovation  on the occasion of their reappearance here last Mon-  dayjight Both sing and act well, a rare combination of qualities. La Jess, the human'anaconda, is a  wonderful contortionist, and the sleight-of-hand work  of Frank Lewis borders on the marvellous. Altogether the performance is one that supplies a couple  of hours' enjoyable entertainment.  The Irish. Standard, Minneapolis, says: "The report  of a Fenian invasion of Canada is intended toscarethe  .Canadians and' keep them  from rendering aid to the  4 mother country\ in  her war with  the Boers.     The  Irish ofthe United States have the   kindliest feelings  for the Canadians and have not the slightest notion of  crossing the border.     They think,   however,  that  Canadians should stay at home anddet England fight  her   own battles in the eastern   hemisphere"     The  bloviating persons who are talking about a Fenian in  vasion of Canada, or, in other words, are talking  up  the   gratification   of their private grudges against  Great   Britain at the   expense  of the United States,  would be the first ones, in case they could get some  credulous  fools to make such and idiotic attempt,   to  get into a   place of safety  and allow their deluded  followers to suffer the penalty.

The plan  covered--' fifteen"--square feet, and the collection of the  necessary data by field work and the execuion'covered  a period of eighteen months.    Twice during the progress of  his endeavor   was Mr, Snow afflicted   with  sunstroke,   and  his   recovery    took   four and   six  months respectively.    Mr. Snow was hi South Africa  from i860 to 1866.     When his arduous undertaking  had been completed, the town  corporation could   not  compensate him for his work owing to the impoverished  condition of its 'exchequer,-and since his departure  from the country Mr. Snow has heard nothing what-  ever in regard to   the   disposition of  the   plan -upon  which he expended so much labor,.    It is reasonable,  however, to'.-suppose that subsequent surveyors found  it most valuable as a basis-for their researches.     Mr.  Snow   has written   to the   Governor-General asking  that His Excellency institute ait inquiry as to the disposal of the   map, and also to ascertain   whether he ,  may ex (sect any  pecuniary recognition -from.'-those  who'are possibly profiting by his labors.. ....-  ^SflWXA^WOfafwwwWW  Its History Defective.  {Vuri&nivor WorNt)   ���'  Our contemporary the New Westminister Cdum��  hum, usually somewhat familiar.with.btstoricatevents  relating to the Dominion, afid.;e$pecially.tO'thi& Province, in commenting upon the utterances of Sir Charles  Tupper, Bart, during his recent visit to thecoast,errs  in asserting" that the' late Hon.

Mr. Howe' displayed  great hostility to the scheme-and worked* as he had  never done Ixrforc, to prevent it consummation* There  were others at the time who were';dubious of the  future success of so rapidly brought-about a change.  Amongst the number were the late Hem. Alexander  Mackenzie. Sir A. A. Dorion. Hon.' L. If.-.Holtou,  Mr.'Joseph Rymal (still living) and others,      ft was  Osier & Gurd,  ker Street,  ...Over...

Nova Scotia, and that he died shortly after  being appointed to that exalted position. Messrs.  M ackeuzie, I )orion, Ry mat and some others after wards  became convinced that the solution to the political  dead lock which had arisen in 1863-64.was"in the  a<lootion of the union of all the British North Ameri-  ,mu provinces, such as Hon.

The Mining Industry.  \ Rjodo Ktmlei m la u)  If in volume, value and '.ramification of its influence  ������.-..'��� ���  upf>n the welfare of a nation   government recognition  and encouragement should   l>e givzn   an   industry,  then that of mining holds a place hardly secondary to  that of any other.  Agriculture in all its branches, no doubt,   is   more  important than any other, from the fact that it supplies  food and clothing for the   human family,     it is   an  industry that cannot be dispensed with.     It employs  more labor than any other.  It is maintained-by some men engaged in   railway  transportation that railroads are the largestemployers  of labor in the country. In this they are in error.  Mining in all its. branches employs more labor by far  than railroads and more than any manfacturing industry or than commerce. Except agriculture, it  adds more to the wealth and supplies more of the  wants of the people of the nation. Were raining in  all its phases to cease, commerce in volume and bulk  ofthe commodities handled would dwindle to two-  thirds, if not one-half, of its present proportions, v  Thus in a general way the importance of mining is  made to appear, which would be vastly enhanced if  space permitted going into statistical details. It,  perhaps, further should be said that the products of  mines enter into house and railroad structures, it  furnishes the principal materials for ships, machinery  and implements of all industries, and the utensils for  the homes. It is difficult te point out where iron,  steel, copper, lead, zinc and coal are not necessities  of life or useful in promoting happiness. Last, but  not least, mining furnishes the basis of the monetary  systems of the world, the media of exchange for all  commercial transactions, domestic  and international.

It will he my jwdley to''oppose - the borrowing of money  uiilcw the.Maine-tie tx*i*d for the Increase or establinhment  of public work** producing a revenue to the taxpayers.  I um opposed to any increase- In the -.salary of Mayor,  which would necessarily involve a reduction in salaries  now paid an-efficient staff of officials, or an increased burden to the ratepayers.  1 am strongly in favor of maintaining the fire department in a position of thorough efficiency and would advise the adoption of ri odern equipments, iucluding a fire  alarm system and the purchase of a chemical engine,  which would effect a reduction in all fire insurance.  It will be my consistent policy to safeguard the taxpayers against any attempt on the part of corporate bodies,  .carrying on business in Nelson, to encroach upon the  rights of the citizens.  In..my opinion a sufficient amount of money should be  expended upon the parks of the city so that they will provide the citizens with recreation grounds and opportunities for healthful enjoyment. *  On all municipal works my policy will be to employ  bona fide residents of Nelson and to maintain the public  standard rate of wages.  f believe that the public schools in Nelson should be  under tite control of the city, and that every effort should  be made to establish a high school in our midst.  In conclusion, I wish to say that in the event of my  election I will consider it my duty to share with the council the responsibility of the civic administration, believing, as 1 do, that the assumption of entire authority by  one individual is subversive;of all constitutional government, whether municipal or otherwise.
