EDITORIAL COMMENT.
THE thrae-cornered fight i 1 Burrard district is. being, watched with considerable
interest. The contestants are Rov»t. McPher-
son, Liberal; Chris./Foley, Labor, and Dr.
Mclnnes, Independent, the latter having an
old score to settle with the Ottawa Government. The Conservatives have wiselv re-
frained from mjxing up in the fighgjbut will
choose the least of three evils as their consciences dictate. Ii is generally conceded
that Dr. Mclnnes is out of the contest, and
that the great struggle will be between Mc
Pherson and Foley.
A recent editorial of   the Mail and Empire
calls attention to a state of   affirs  at Ottawa
which might have been considered remarkable
twenty years ago or. even   later.    Under   the
caption of  "Irresponsible  Government,"   the
Toronto  journal  dealt with   the  report of a
speech by British; Columbia's Cabinet  Minister, Senator Templeman, on tbe Chinese question, showing that the  Senator is at  least as
much at variance with his chief and  his  colleagues on this question as was Mr. Tarte on
the tariff question.    Of course this is only an
isolated case ; there  are certainly many cases
upon which the Dominion   Cabinet would be
sadly divided.    Literally, it  is a  violation of
the theory of the constitution ; the  ministry
are regarded as  the  framers  of   the  nation's
policy and  responsible to   Parliament   for it,
and each minister is responsible   for   the   acts
and spoeches of each other   minister.    Constitutionally, Senator Templeman  should  sever
his connection with the ministry the   moment
he finds himself obliged  to  dissent  from his
chief upon a. question which he regards as vital. A quarter of a century ago, he must have
done so, but time, a very short time really, has
effected a strange revolution in the government
of North America, both in Canada and the
American States.
When the framers of the American constitution were providing for the election of presidents they thought that the election by the
people of a college of electors four months before the election of president would remove
the latter event from the distraction of popular excitement. Now, as everyone knows, the
electoral college is a mere arrangement of
markers who register in March the choice
made by the people in the November preceding. And, though the American Senate continues to show signs of independence, chiefly in language, tne House of
Representatives practically only registers the
voice of the people as expressed atthe ballots;
the real framers of American policy are the
party managers, anyone will do for member.
It. is many years now since ex-Speaker Reed
of the House of Representatives publicly
"thanked God that the House had ceased to
be a deliberative assembly."
Now, have not we in Canada imperceptibly
and perhaps unconsciously, allowed our government to follow the same course of development ? No one any longer expects the initiation of any movement from the government of the day ; forward policies
are first preached by men like Sir Sanfor^,
Fleming and the late Principal Grant. They
are then advocated in the press, the ministers
following, not leading or even guiding public
opinion. They may risk their places by
adopting such a policy, or they may safely
submit the matter to popular decision by referendum. The frequent employment of this
last device is the most notable step towards
the abolition of responsible government; it
tends inevitably to a restriction of government's function in executing the commands of
the people.
Since this is so, the private and even the
publicly expressed opinions of Cabinet Ministers need be held in no greater esteem than
those of any other electors. Whatever they
may think they will be merely units in an administrative body whose function is but to register and obey the expressed will of the people.
Whether this is a satisfactory conclusion of
the century-long struggle for responsible government or not is another question. If we
prefer to have policies presented to us in outline and ministers ah party leaders accept full
responsibility for them and stand or fall with
them, it may yet bo possible to return tho way
wo have come. Wo must discountenance the
referendum in any 1 >rm, and on any question
must judge ministers by  acts   of   omission as
well as of commission and retire a government
for failure on any point as is still done in
Britain. For instance, if British Columbia is
sincere in her demand for exclusion of the
Asiatics, her members should be sitting in opposition continually until such exclusion is
declared and enforced.
The appointment of Hon.  A.   L   Sifton   to
the Chief  Justiceship  of   the  Territories, has
aroused  a storm of indignation  in   the   East,
and Liberals are not behind Conservatives in
condemning the appointment as   nepotism of
the most flagrant character.    The West^ of Re-
gina, is particularly outspoken with  regard to
the appointment.    It   says :    "It  is   only  by
comparison that things can be judged.    From
a comparative standpoint   we   are   willing to
forget, forgive and overlook all  the   many nepotic acts   of   the  present   Cabinet   Ministers
which had effect prior to   the   appointment of
Hon. A. L. Sifton to the Chief  Justiceship of
the Territories.    We did think that favoritism
and nepotism was being carried too   far when
our militia and police systems  were  made  to
carry inspectors and other officers who had to
be instructed in their duties   by   the privates
before they could do the work   for which they
were being paid.    Thre were other things into
which nepotism has been most brazenly introduced by our present rulers, but we had hoped
that our \ udiciary would   escape   the   baneful
influence of this most pernicious system.    Our
hopes, however, were   unfouuded,   for   by   the
appointment of Hon.   Sifton   the honor of the
judiciary is invaded  in  a   manner  to  which
British history furnishes no rival.    We have
searched history as far as we can, but find  no
precedent for such an  unwarranted procedure
as that by which A. L. Sifton  is hoisted up to
the hightest   Territorial   judicial pinnacle  in
violation   of  all   the   principles with   which
British justice  is  surrounded in practice and
by tradition.    It must be humiliating  to all
Northwestemers to know that   this now country baa furnished the first instance   by which
the judicial system of our country has been degraded and deprived of that honor and lespect
which' has   hitherto surrounded  justice. • Sif-
tonian greed, Siftonian nepotism has lowered
our country  to these  depths,  and   while we
hang our heads in shame we can   blame only
ourselves, for did we not by   our votes give to
these men the power that they have and which
they have so shamefully abused ?"
The Phoenix Pioneer asks, what's the use of
producing so much coke in British Columbia,
if the local smelters cannot secure all they
need ?

Like so many others of his class, be did succeed for a time, but, as in the majoiity of  cases, he at last-met with a serious obstaclein  the shape of tie law. " Libelie in ' his short  span of life, had quite as adventurous a career  as any of the modern highwaymen. Born of  respectable parents and well connected, in  stead of choosing a respectable way of gaining a livelihood, he preferred to associate with  the lawless and idle. He was at various times  an opium smuggler, a tin-horn gambler, and  to fill in time indulged in petty thieving. He  was in Nelson a few* years ago, and followed  gambling for a living. He afterwards left for  Dawson, where the crimes for which he suffered death were committed. He was again  in Nelson about a year ago, and remained  here a couple of weeks, after which he left for  Nevada, where he was captured The career  of Labelle should be a warning to young men  who believe that the world owes them a living other than the livelihood gained by honest toil.  Mrs. L. Goodman, the oldest living female  artist, celebrated her ninetieth birthdiy recently at her home in .London. She began  her professional career teventy years ago, and  is still occupied in portrait painting. She has  painted over 1 200 likenesses in oils and pastels. Mrs. Goodman has been an occasional  exhibitor at the Royal Academy, and other  galleries in London, and is old enough io remember the coronation of George IV. She has  seven sons and daughters living.  i  The new council lost no time in getting its  guillotine in order. Official heads are dropping into the basket with such monotonous  regularity as to remind historians like Aid.  Irving of the dreadful days  of  the Commune.  A London newspaper   tells  this   anecdote :  "Lastevening a strolling policeman was passing the barrow of a customer  who was weighing out plums to a customer.    The  coster,   as  rosters do,  chucked off the top plum as  overweight.     The   policeman,   as  policemen   do,  took a casual plum as his perquisite.    But the  biter was bit, for his teeth ground hard on the  iron eimulcrum of a plum.    It   was   the   very  one the  coster had   thrown   off   tho   balance  Now, what could a policeman do ?    As a gentleman he could neither prosecute, for the situation was a delicate one, nor steal   a   business'  asset.    He took the right course.   He returned  the iron  plum   to the  stall and   took   a real  one  >>  I read of a man who said to a  maid  That  whether   she   lived   in   the cocoa tree  shade,  Or where the fierce  panther   in   wild   forests  stayed,  Or where   soft    southern    waters  were   rippling,    .  He sent her his greetings   where'er   she might  be���  'Neath the* frozen sky or the ban}Tan tree,  Till he made her his   bride   until   life  should  flee���  And I think it was Mr. Kipling.  So since minds great with thought in the same  channels run,  And Pegasus prances, when once he's begun,  And the muse flares  ber torch   in   the face of  the sun, ". 1  I no longer my quick pen will  tarry.

He must love me, of course,   but  must   never  ask  My secrets to know, but contentedly bask  In my smiles when I  give   them, nor take me  to task  When my conduct and actions   don't please  him.  He must look in my eyes and call me fair,  As I put on a sweet little,injured air,  And I think  all the  while,  as  I   smooth   his  hair,  Of a nice little story to ease him.  I never have seen him, and yet some day  We will sail along on the Biscay Bay,  With the blue above, end pur hearts so gay,  And no secret cares to smother ;  We will laugh with the gods   as   we sail, and  when  The light has died out of the sky, oh ! then  I will promise to love him forever, amen���  If I don't fall in love with another.  At a meeting held  in   Victoria   recently   to  form a British Columbia   mining  association,  Mr. Hobson gave some  very   interesting  data  |   respecting tho operations of   tho   properties in  j  Cariboo   vvith which   he   is   connected.    Tho  Cariboo Consolidated Hydraulic Mining com  pany had expended $1,900,000 ; against that  there was recovered $1,770,000 in  gold, all of  which was put back in the development ofthe  properties   which   were   being  worked.    The  Horsefly   Mining   company    had     expended  $350,000 during the progress of development  work and had recovered the sum   of $180,000.  Could they say they were no grand   possibilities for the development   by hydraulic process  of the vast alluvial deposits of British Columbia ?    In   this   proviuce   they had the   most  magnificent     and      stupendous      deep      alluvial deposits on earth.    He   said  that after  having had 30 years'experience in California.  Experts   had   declared   that   there   were only  now in that State $500;000.000 to be removed  before the alluvial deposits were   worked  out.  That was all that could  be expected.    There  were vast   ancient   river deposits   yet   to be  opened up by hundreds of miles of canals and  every mile of this would- yield anywhere from  $5,000 to $5,000,000.    Aftes all this had been  said regarding California,   he could state that  in his opinion in Cariboo alone there were ten  times theaurit'erous deposits  which existed in  California.    That was why he had-abandoued  California, and  come    to   British    Columbia.  where he had become a citizen of the country  and intended to remain for the rest of his life,  using all   his efforts   to   demonstrate  to   the  world the enormous richness of this   marvelous province.    Continuing,  he asked :    Why  had   not   other  capitalists   entered Cariboo ?  Simply because it  was impossible for the nd to  get a stable title.  The door of the country was  effectually barred to the prospector���the man  who first demonstrated  the   value of   mining  propositions the world   over.    Capital always  follows the prospector,    He -e in  British Columbia the Placer Act debarred  him from en-  lering the field of placer mining. To engage in  mining in Cariboo was beyond his means. He  must first obtain a lease, and in order to do so  he would have to dig up $50.    Pie would   say  he could not afford it, while for $50' he could  could get a supply of giant and go prospecting  somewhere else   for  six   months.    He was required to do $1,000 worth of  assessment work  during the year.    This to him was beyond his  accomplishment, and   what   was   the result ?  He left the field and went south to California.  There are   to-day thousands   of Canadians iii  California who, if there were favorable mining  acts in this province, would flock at once here.  It was the experience of mining men   all over ���  the province that the  prospector will   always  spend his money   on   the  development of his  prospect in   order   to demonstrate  its   value.  Why then should he debarred   from engaging  in his pursuit in thir. province ? If he is given  a claim his interest is in the country ; he becomes a permanent settler ; he becomes a good  citizen, and he produces' that revenue which  you are now so badly  in need of.    The development of   the  agricultural   interests  of   the  country would follow the advent of the miner.  Tho history of 'California since 1872 shows this.  Capital will not come here under present conditions.    Why ?

If this were remedied,  and a sufficient area of land   given, hundreds  of millions of capital would flow into the country at once.    He would just give them two instances which   would   indicate the  enormous  values there are in the Cariboo country.    Two  companies were formed to operate in that district���one in Boston with a capital of $4,000,-  000, and one in New York- with   a'capital of;  $2,000,000.    Miles and miles  of canals  four  feet wide were to be  built for  the working of  the great deposits.    For   four   years on behalf  of these companies he  had haunted the legislative halls in an attempt to. get remedial legislation which would permit of these companies to engage in his enterprise, which they had  in mind, but he   accomplished Anothing,  and  was practically sat upon. And what happened?  Both   of   those companies   took their    maney  arid   invested   it in   the Stated of   California.

It ia believed   that a   spoonful of   the  juice in a tumbler of   water will   make it eh--,  ti rely safe.    People who eat oysters may leave  doing so with fear and trembling, if only they  will   sprinkle these   animals   copiously   with  lemon juice before   slipping   them   into   their  mouths.

One  of these, recently completed,   is   the   Cauvery  Falls plant, of 4,000  horsepower,   for   mining  ^.purposes in the Kolar   gold   fields,' in India.  The Kolar Gold Field, speaking of   it as a defined locality, is situated   on   the Mysore plateau.

DOROTHY COVENTRY finished her song  amid a murmur of very generous ap  plause, and as she stood by the piano with her  music in h^r hand and a flush of excitement  on her cheeks, her thoughts flew to her faraway Australian home, and she wished that  there were not only strangers present to witness her first artistic success.  "That was delightful, my dear," said her  hostess kindly ; "now I must find some one to  take you to 8Upper.,, Her gaze wandered  round her crowded drawing-room, and finally  rested on a dark, good-looking roan who stood  near her. "Ah, here is Mr. Wilmot," she continued ; "he is longing to know you."  When the introduction was effected, Dorothy regarded Basil Wilmot curiously ; she  had heard so much of him and his brilliant  pioapects at tlie bar from her cousin, who was  a struggling member of the same profession,  that she was a interested in knowing him.  For once Lady Byrne's 'Mr. Wilmot is longing to meet you" was not mere formula. Basil  was devotedly fond of music, and Dorothy's  full, passionate contralto thrilled and fascinated bim. He saw that she possessed the true  artistic temperament, and judged that she  would prove a sympathetic and amusing companion.  He exerted himself to draw her out nnd  please her, and before the evening waB over  they were chatting like old friends.  Basil learned that this was Dorothy's first  professional engagement in England, and that  she hoped to make a big name for herself.  "My brother believes in me," she said, with  a proud smile, "and he is spending every  penny he can afford on my training. I have  studied for a year in my well beloved Paris  and now I have come to this grey, sober land  of yours, with its prejudices and conventionalities. Do you think I shall get on ? Will  they like me ?"  Wilmot almost smiled at the appealing  earnestness of the last question put to him,  with just the faintest touch of Irish brogue and  coquetry.  "They can hardly fail to like eithor you or  your voice, if by 'they7 you mean the great  British public," he answered ; but in his heart  ho knew that this girl would have a hard strug  gle for existence in \ he overcrowded profession  which she had adopted.  When she asked him to come and see her,  he assented eagerly. He admired her pluck  and determination. Then, too, she wasui*  deniably pretty, ard it must be that Wilmot  thought of little else but his new acquaintance  on his return to his chambers in Half Moon  Street.  He was nearly forty, and having been jilted  some fifteen years previously, he had now arrived at the determination to marry when a  suitable opportunity occurred���3ome one  whom he could respect and care for as an intellectual companion. That he would ever be  really in love again he thought was extremely  doubtful, but he pinned his faith on "respect  and liking"���these two poor substitutes for  the "grande passion," which go so far toward  spoiling the happiness of many married lives.  The winter was a disappointing one for Dorothy. Charity concerts in aid of the War  Fund were the order of the day. No one entertained, and no concerts other than charity  ones were given. She was ill and homesick,  and it took all her pluck to keep a brave face,  and fight against the many difficulties which  beset her. Sbe wrote home regularly, telling  her people always of her joyp,but keeping her  sorrows to herself.  Her friendship with Basil was very sweet to  her, and though she flirted desperately with  everyone else, it was for him the warmest  place in her heart was kept.  One afternoon, as they sat by the fire in  Dorothy's sitting-room, Basil asked her to  marry him, and she would have been thankful to lay aside her worries and struggles and  say yes ; yet she knew she could never happily resign her freedom or her work, and Bhe  felt she would be unworthy the confidence of  her mother and her brother, who so longed for  a glorious career for her as a singer, and had  parted with her for this object, if she gave up  the fight now.  "I cannot, dear friend," she told Basil,  "There would be no honor in my soul if I forgot the wishes of my dear ones and forsook  my work. Marriage is not for me. I must  live for my singing only."  Basil argued in vain. Dorothy, for all her  sweetness, was very determined, and when she  announced   her  attention  of  going back   to  Paris and not seeing him again, he knew that  her decision was final.  "How I shalt miss you," he said wistfully  " Little girl, you do not realize what my life  will be without you."  "Some one far more suitable than I will ap- "  pear, an then I shall  be  only   a memory^'an  episode," she replied.  "I shall never cease to long for you," he said 4  with conviction.  "Ah," quoted Dorothy, with a brave little ���"  attempt a*, a smile, as she held out her hand1-  in farewell, "we miss the violets always till *  the roses come."  ���    "       * * *    ,       sje * *  A year later Dorothy sat by her fire in the  tiny Paris studio which  she  shared with an  artist friend.    The life she  led in this land of.:  her adoption suited her  far better than that  she had passed in England, but her loneliness  was often intense, and her thoughts wandered  regretfully   back   to   Basil,  and   the  remembrance of all she  had  sacrificed  for   her art  overwhelmed her.    But the worst part of it all  was that she had hurt the man she  cared for '  so much, and rendered him as lonely and solitary as she was herself���this idea never ceased !��  to haunt her.  Now she smiled a bitter little smile at her  own foolishness, as she learned from the letter  of an English friend of Basil's recent engagement and great happiness.  "He is hopelessly in love," she read, "and  looks years younger ; you would hardly know  him if you met him now."  "Till the roses come/' she murmured softly.  "They have blossomed quickly."  He, a bright young newspaper man. and  she, lovely as an Indian summer day, were  out driving.  "Do you know," she said, "I should like to  be a newspaper man ?"  "You can be the next thing to it."  "What is that?"  "My wife."  And just then a shadow fell. The sun was  holding a cloud in front oi his face while he  snickered.  When Adam was one year old he was the  smartest baby in Asia. If he had not dealt in  ribs he would have been all right.  jfc-v  fl  I  *��*tMWWWWffPPBWjftyW��^^  ��%^ww*��fmipppi<^w^r��tf��  WM^f^��Sr'��"T^W ��*W*��>  i ot        u      ;     i ,, v (l  'li     , ,1, > >     i.        - i  mpnrt^WWJW1|WWHHS^W.WI��J(tWStHl ^| ^a.
