It ie doubtful if  ever  in the   history  oiauv province in the Dominion has there heen any-  vm\�� to  p trailei the condition of affairs existing  at  Vkluria.     For a whileduring the early  part of  the  *u.ek   it seemed ainf the-Opposition  might he found  on the side of ihe   Government   or vice   versa.     No  ah< denied to he ahie to form any idea as. to. the exact  ]' ���>.iiion of the parties.     There is no doubt, however,  tr 1     the Oi'lMfUloa liis d^c*j-*ri!.l ihe possibility  of  ai   ��  iMH^fjtiuiit wah ih'c Government, and  that the  lf * i r-v i ;ht-Oppo..��tioii   placed   the matter   before  111 ei r constituents.   The deadlock which the   Government   encountered   was*   brought  about hy   Messrs.  Kilison   aud   Clifford,   both   oi  whom insisted   that  grants    should   he  given    to   the    roads   in   which  tiiey       are       interested,       namely,       the      Midway-Vernon,   and     the    Kitimat-Hazelton.     Both  !-hese gentlemen,   it is  alleged,   insisted   that   land  1:rants he given them equal   per mile  to   that of   the  Canada  Northern and the Coast-Kootenay line.    To  ��� his proposal the Government at tirst demurred, but  finally   consented.     Thus*,   the   writing of the, final  ���chapter in the history of the Dunsmuir  Government  was deferred for eome time.     The Government can-  mt keep secret much longer the   strong antagonistic  ��� ���<  Province, and that the money ofthe people must not  be squandered away in conferring special benefits on  the capital city. Mr. McP nil tips may have sacrificed  his political existence by the stand he has taken, but  He has demonstrated that there is one man in the  HuU?e who is honest enough to guard the interests  oif those who reside outside his constituency.  Mr McBridk has made a proposal to theGovern-  ment which in all justice to the country should he  accepted without hesitation. In short, Mr. McBride's  offer is to permit supply to be voted and necessary  legislation passed providing the Government will  resrt'$re the reserve on the foreshores and go to the  country at once on its railway policy. a As yet the  Government has not made any answer to Mr.  McBride's proposal, and judging by the ..ball- headed-  nes^ of the combination in the past, it would be  perhaps assuming0 too much to hope that such an  eminently fair offer would be accepted. In the  event of the Government going to the country on its  railway policy, it would be defeated about 7 to 1.

To-day  'hat   Government could  not get  half-a-dozen  sup-  Tiers in  tho   whole  Province.    The Opposition   is  wing up much better now   than it  did   a  month  The strong stand taken   by   Mr.   MoPhillips  f->h   won   that   gentlemen    many   friends,   and   we  l! uht  not    that   he   is   the   strongest   man   in   the  li"iisn to-day.      Mr. MoPhillips   argues  that   while  l'" wan elected    for   the city   of   Victoria,   he is the  r,,prescntative of the  whole   Province.     This is   tho  11 AG v.iew to take of his responsibility to the people,  ;|  h if more of our  representatives  would take   tho  ;oue   view   it   would   he   hotter for tho  Province at  liG'fro.     Victoria must realize that it is not the whole  Confederation has become  a   live issue in   Newfoundland at last.     A Newfoundland contemporary,  the  St.   John's  Free   Press,' lately   discussing   this  question, makes the followingcomments:    " Articles  strongly favoring union are appearing in the government organs,   and the  press  generally   whether in  Canada or Newfoundland, looks favorably on union.  This is greatly to the credit of the proprietors,   inasmuch as they at   least will  suffer.     It is a  curious,  but not. altogether   surprising   fact,  that those  who  would    most   be  benefitted   by   Confederation���the  fishermen to wit���are its bitterest opponents,   whilst  ttio*e who would probably suffer lo^s through a   less  favorable tariif, warmly urge its adoptio a    At present Confederation appears to be without the pale of  practical politics; but things   move rapidly   nowadays, and the revolving months may   do more than  decades past/'    After discussing   the probable  outcome   of   the approaching   colonial   conference   in  London, our contemporary goes on to say: " A large  Heel ion of the people   favor   confederation;   a   still  larger section are opposed to it on any terms, whilst  to a considerable number the question is  entirely  a  matter of  terms.     Confederation on   the Mackenzie  Bowell conditions may be ruled out as unworthy  of  consideration.

Against the former many  protests might arise from Canadians, but protest no  protest, we must ei.her be given a clean sheet or left  to fight our own battles. Newfoundland would resent  the removal of her only weapon, the tariff, and a  continuance of any share of the burden of debt, to remove which that weapon is essential."  Thk death of Rev. Principal Grant will be deeply  regretted throughout the Dominion of Canada. He  was a distinct force in the affairs of the country, and  coiitrinuted at least his share to the upbuilding of his  native land. Canadians can be excused for pointing with pride to the work of Principal Gnat.  It will not help Nelson any if Mr. Justice Martin's  estimate of the jury thai tried the Holmes women is  accepted as the average type of Nelson citizens.  ���������������i       *   ^������Fl^-I'MT. *^1ffn.'|^^��*���^*^t,*^��v"^pp  "tfftfnwr- r-ttyjfrt"*1 "VWH ;i>���  ii    V '  r. ~-\ ."J   J      *     ���''.

North American continent at this time PrnnnJ-  history proves beyond a doubt that we cannot hope  to always enjoy that peculiar condition of industry  and trade which we designate as good times. In the  long run we are bound to average up on fat and  lean years, and after we have profited from a period  of prosperous seasons we are certain to experience  seasons less prosperous. The conditions now  obtaining in so marked a degree are such as. have  universally presaged trade depression. Thoughtful  business men are commencing to ask themselves  whether they may not endanger the steady employment and good wages they have enjoyed during the  last six years, by pushing their demand* further  than the employers of labor can safr-ly go. The rise  in wages is largely necessitated, by the increased  prices of most of the commodities of daily consumption and by the appreciation of land and building  values. But labor m evidently commencing to  imagine thai it can dictate any terms it chooses. It  only needs one or two big slumps in the stock  market, such as there was some indication of the  other day. together with a little more bullyragging  from organized labor and even a partial failure of  crops, to make capital timid and thus produce a  serious reaction. Another great crop in the North-  Wesl would doubtless ciirry industry along for a  time, despite unfavorable conditions in labor and in  ��� securities. But it is evident that a time- ha?  arrived when prudence should be the watchword of  all classes.**  .J:  -j^i  A.  i--       7T77  t'   .  ~J-  y i  -JJ!  =��� -��  1  * ���__*_���_  Il - ��M^ ���  ^0*il  street, .vhich is oiifyoteof thegreit man's many  mansions, "Tagore* has on two occasions���m 187 1  and 1801���been president of the British India association, and he was cieated a ,.m aha rajah in  heredity about ten years ago."  ���4_ w_Uy**lM'W����M*��' MM*  M h .

The same old hull-dog spirit that  has carried John Bull through many another trouble  has triumphed again. Never noted for his  brilliancy, he displays in all his undertakings that  stubborn obstinancy that knows no defeat. Like  others who learn slowly he leartis well ; and his  s.-fining defeats are but the forerunners of more  complete victory. The war in Africa is over as far  us real warfare is concerned and Britain emerges  ir ��m its darkness a victor, not much over the hard-  tinning B ;ers as over many of th*j weakness as of her  .tntiy system. The victory has cost money but it  ni.iy be counted cheap, should the lessons learned  come to be used in a day when the fate of the Em-  urn- hangs in the balance."  Ir will be pleasant news to the Scotch to learn  ih.t the kilt is not to disappear from ihe uniforms  ofthe British army. It is announced that the  Highland regiments will retain the kilt for- full  .ir-. and inst ructions will be issued for providing  :_ ki t of khaki, or some invisible color, on active  service, as is now done in South Africa.

Cheap men and as few as possible for the work seem3  to represent the policy of the Departments of Labor  and   Mails.     In Winnipeg   great   discontent  exists  among   the men.     The  4 holiday'  season   has   now  arrived, and it is proposed to divide the work of the  absent man amongst about three others already work-  ing to their full   capacity, and far in excess of   what  civil   service rules  call    for; but   the    men   refuse,  and     very     properly,     to      do       it.     SucIk      a  system is a ir&ud, and in no  sense a  holiday, gained  as it is  by no conce/sion or"cost to   the department.

It was not what could be called good lacrosse, but it  was just as good as could be expected on grounds  where a spade would hav�� been more effective than  a lacrosse stick. However, one thing was clearly  demonstrated, and that is, Nelson has the best  lacrosse team of any year yet. It is doubtful if  Medicine Hat could beat us ibis year, and should th��  boys from the Hal meet us this' season they will have  all their work cut out for them.

Some of th��  games were scored so rapidly tbat th�� visitors did  not get th�� ball in their sticks until it was in tb��  net.' When it cam�� to getting th�� ball, too, oar  boys were altogether too fast for their opponents.  Charlie Jeffs played all around his check, and Jack  Fox was always Johnny-on-th�� spot.

Trie time whb winter and the  scene     of the       manifestation  lonely moor'1 lying between the  city of Carson, which \* the capital  of Nevada, and the Mint 11 farm  where some yearn past 1 have raided  h a v , cattle n n d a ��1 n a 11 fa m i 1 y  A political function had kept  me out rather late, and I wae  driving home after midnight.  The night wjis clear and starlit,  wiih enow on the ground and the  air ho mew bat nipping in its disposition.  When about half way home,  having Mill two mi la* to go, I  g r a d u vi 11 y be can 1 e a w a r e t h a t  something had happened to my  buggy, for it .-eerned to run with  vvith leHB noine than m-tial. In  Nevada the wheels of vehicles  Hhrinlc from the drvne. ^ of the  atmonphere, coupled with the indifference of their ownern, and  mine were no exception t<> the rule.  There wan alwaj'H more or lcr-s  frpace between the tire and the  felloe, and the wagH of thn city had  a way of Haying that my approach  to town was always heralded by an  infernal clatter which betokens s  careless man with ail his buggy  wheel*-* out of repair.  It seemed to me suddenly that  pomething like 25 per cent of the  u^usl clatter of the vehicle had  ceased, *nd 1 was at a lots to  understand why. The feeling  came over me bo strongly that  something unusual had transpired  that 1 hesitated to ascertain the  cause. An ill-defined feeling of  dread was upon me, and, 1 b!ut*h  to confess it, 1 really feared to look  around. Finally, by a strong  effort, I summoned my courage  and, glancing back, wa�� astonished  to discover that the off hind wheel  of my buggy had disappeared.  What was more, the vehicle did  not teem to mind it, but ran as  level a& ever. The cessation of the  clatter which that wheel always  produced was now explained, but  the continued level running of the  buggy was not. An awful, creepy  feeling now came over ma that  aim oat amounted to a pain, and  in the midat of my wonderment  the noise of another wheel stopped,  and I knew mat it had followed  its prede<e*Bor. I deliberately  turned about and investigated.  Here I was running along on an  evvn keel, nautically speaking,  with nothing but my two front  wheels to go on.  Ah I   waa   considering   the   pro-  babilby    of   the   others     i^oiug    1  noticed a  dun,    hazy thing    hanging    to    the   hub   of   my   off front  wheel.      1   Hpeak in a h��*n<y   eenue,  after the manner of follower* of the  turf, for in reality the    wheel   waa  hi ill    on.
