EDITORIAL COMMENT,  ;   ���' .     7     ���".���-'.'   ���*  FOR one thing at Ieastrif for no other, the  Dominion Liberal party is entitled to admiration   and   congratulation, the spirit   of  party loyalty.    It might have been expected  that among several hundred thousand thinking men there might have been some difference  of opinion on the  subject  of Mr. Tarte's retirement and of  Sir Wildfred'a course in connection wit v   it.    But Ruchfearn   have been  found quite groundUs**.   Even the newspapers  which had most loudly nungthe ex-ifliiiisterV  praiaes have formed a   very temperate epti-  mate of his  abilities and services within the  Ikbi fortnight, and   there iff   hardly a  single  discordant not�� in the  harmoiiioud chorus of  approval of the winning faction     The strangest feature of the  situation   is that the unanimity extends not only  to the  party oraans,  but to  the individual  memberb of the pajrty.  It would not be surprising-to find  all agreed  upon a set of views ordinarily���the party had  but one opinion in the  general election campaign of 18%, that it was highly desirable for  many reasons to win that campaign and rest  on the treasury benches, they might differ on  trifles like the Remedial Bill and  the  tariff,  but the real issue���in or out���found them in  perfect concord.  As we said before, the mere fact of their  being united at a given time would be no  matter for astonishment, but that all have  been able to modify their opinions so soon  and so completely is nothing short of. phenomenal. One peculiar faet may throw a  little light upon it, only enough to explain  the apparent suddenness. It may be remembered that during the anxious weeks while  Mr. Tarte was ��xp easing so unreservedly  ���views diametrically opposed to the party *o pro-  fessed policy and Mr. Sifton and th�� Globe  were tentatively combating the obvious interpretation of them, no Liberal could be induced to express any opinion but that the  whole story of discord  in  the Cabinet was a  wicked invention of the Conservative press*  But as sson as authority in the person of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier spoke all good Liberals knew  what their opinionr were.  One cannot help wondering whether the  unanimity would have been any less sudden  or eonrplete had Sir Wilfrid endorsed Mr.  Tarte and dismissed Mr. Sifton and the  Globe.  Th�� 30th of October, 1902, will be a memorable day in the history of Greater Britain :  it marked the completion of the Pacific cable  which, if this were a republican paper, we  should certainly call the greatest cable in the  world, connecting Vancouver Inland with  Queensland, nearly eight thousand miles  away. About fifteen years ago, just after  "the thing that couldn't had occurred," a  through train had gone from tide-watsr to  tidewater on Canadian'soil, across the prairies and over the Rookie?, Sir S*nd��ord  Fleming, the great engineer to whom Canada  at  owes more than to most of her statesmen, assarted the feasibility of a cable between Canada and Australia, and advocated it as an Imperial enterprise.  It took nearly fourteen  years to  convince  the various governments  of its  advisability,  the actual work of laying it has taken a little  over a year, and now it is  an  accomplished  fact, and Britain, Canada and Australia have  a new connecting link that touches no foreign  land���-all the connecting   links are protected  by the flag.    The  political and   commercial  importance of this achievement can hardly be  over-estimated, but  even its completion   has  been quietly announced and   there   has   been  no boasting, no blatant  self applause     This  is as it should be.    It  recalls the older English spirit  which the  roaring celebrations of  London mobs  had   made us  fear was dead.  We arc content to do our  work  and  look at  the result in calmness.    We need . not try  to  rival the advertising faculty of our neighbors  to the south of uk  The drawing together of the scattered members of the Empire will be better accomplished and more surely by forging such links  as this than by fl >wery speeches and fanciful  projects of trade alliances. In any future  struggle of the Empire, the word of encouragement and report of progress may pass  safely by British routes with no danger of foreign coloring or delay.  The result of  th�� recent  elections in  United States was what most  Canadians probably expected.    Th�� Democratic party seems  to have lost its moorings for a time. The low  tariff policy seems unlikely to he a path to  power and victory for a time; the American  people are still quite content with their policy  of high protection. The free silver issue,  which owed its prominence almose entirely to  Mr. Bry&'n, has subsided as suddenly as it  rose. Anu-expansion was equally unsuccessful as a rallying cry. Foreign possesses  were too attractive to Young Americi :t^ bs  lightly given up.  But parties must hava some other platform  than the desire to govern, and the men who  formulate par'y policies in the great RepuMla  are generally fairly skilful in gauging public  opinion.  What then will be the next Democratic  piaiturm ?  Opposition to trusts and advocacy of public  ownership would undoubtedly command considerable t?upport, especially' in the industrial  centra, but it is hard to see what definite  measures can be framed towards either. ;' It  cannot be said that power is in the handsHot  any one class. Everyone is elected ultimately  by popular vote, even the judges. If the  American people cannot get such legislation  as they wish and have efficient administration  of the laws the fault must lib with the people  themselves. ^   ���  Generally, in English-speaking countries  the return of an administration means that  people are fairly well pleased with things as  they are, and that there is no acute distress.  Good times are a great advantage to a Government seeking a renewal of its mandate.  As might nave been expected, English people are already taking a saner view of the  Government's Education Bill than was evidenced at first. The improvement of public  education is of vital importance and the Bill  is at least a step in the right direction. It is  further admitted now that the charge that  education was to be subjected to clerical influence was utterly unfounded��� There are two  parallel and to some extent rival systems of  schools in England; they have to be united and  assimilated, and the Government has chosen  as the bans of the new system the one which  was of earlier date and numbered more supporters. That is the case in a nutshell and  the hysterical attack accomyanted by cries of  ritualistic control were worthier of France  or some othsr country than of old England.  It ia generally conceded now that the Bill  will pass and become law. In fact, Liberalu  have already abandoned it ao .a IgMiag  groui  4w  ,,,i>;;i  'Hi  s  wm  V\ i  \A-l,l  \f.l imt>  tt  It*  iTTr^^^iw.*-^^  'Mf-  y^^r^imyy^^  K  rt h i  W fkktrt^VUK.j, ,������ M,,JM,Hte|m<��,lMw,W),fcTOtf^|w, ^.^.k^.^^,, ,., ���  V|"/t "���"  "*���""��� - "-��  "il  J  ,,H  VI  'fV  If WI  ���f  I*  ���{{��  ^���B^tl.*&fiiSt*,ii*t,*JV:'rt(lt\Tt,*'!l  >   IHl  , '" 1.    ,  "4  t\A  '<!? t  'lA ' t  '��      'i!

They an agreed that Nelson was rather a nice  yplace from a tourist's point of view, but  wanted to know how the floating population  passed away the evenings-or what the enterprising citizens were doing in the way of providing-attractions for tourists  with good hab-  AwIa A 8aid that the great drawback to J .ing Col.

Oia had on the outside.    Of  course  everyone  t��ad to admit thatrN^lsoh was woefully lacking -in the matter  of amusement, and no one  attempted  to  controvert   the  statement '<hat  the Province had about the most idiotic Government that was   known   to   the   civilized  world.    But a place is jusi' what  the people  make if, and a Legislature is supposed  to   be  composed of men   fairly representative of the  people who send them there.  At pre-ent   the   political situation is peculiar, to say the least of  i , and what the ultimate outcome will be it is hard to conjecture,  but one thing is certain and that   ia*,  Premier  Dunsmuir will not   resign   until   afier the return of Mr. Weils from Ottawa, which will be  in three or four weeks.    This . delay   i.��*   to see  if Col. Prior and  Mr. Eberts   cannot   come to  some   amicable   arrangement  with"-.regard-to  the  leadership,   ami  if  such   arrangement is  not made the chances are that Mr. Dunsmuir  will retain office till  the   House   meets.    The  general opinion is that Mr. Eberts i$ not giving Col.   Prior a   square  deal3 as  the understanding   was  at  the  time the  Colonel con- J  j. sented to come to the  assistance of the totter-  >  I  ing Government  that   the  Premier would re-  j  sign when he   returned from   the Coronation,  .'  and that Col. Prior would   bi called   upon to "j  reconstruct   the .Government.    Mr. El��erls is  j  not strengthening himself by his latest ex hi hi-  j  tion of base ingratitude. l  Lack of rational   amusement in time has a  bad effkot on a community.    Young men. will  .-/.    not be lied down   to   the   home, so these long  evenings  they   search   out  some place where  . they can enjoy   themselves.    I.   may be lhat  .'?e_8alo��?    ����.   the    place   to    which    they  direct   their ��� footsteps,    but    if    lhey    have  not acquired the drink   habit, they   are   very  apt to be found in  some back   room   playin'  cards.    I raise no objection to a social   game  of cards.    It sometimes   helps   to dispel   the  dull monotony of work, but there is always the  danger that cards   when play^   in   a   buck-  room  may lead   to  something   wor,e.    If We  had a respectable   music   hall   where   youi._.  men could pass away   an   hour  or   so of an   ��veniDg. the menace  of  the card table would  be considerably diminished.

In   fact   there seems  to   have  been a generous exchange of compliments all  around.    Of  the  many  pleasant things said,  was the suction   of  one alderman that la,  >��clin��d to the belief  that the best way for a  cv.c employee to hold his   situation   was to  exerc.se due discretion in the  purchase of cer-  tain  lines   r,f  good.

It may be that ignorance of the duties of  his  office may have  prompted an alderman to advance  the interests ot a customer by conferring patronage on  him, but ignoraace of the law H no excuse for  the commission of a crime.    The burglar who  pays you a nocturnal visit and robs vou may  plead   ignorance,    but    the    judge   will not  tike   that   plea into  consideration   when   be  pronounces .f eh tehee  on,; the eulpnt.    Some  criminologists coniead that crime is a disease,  and should be tiealed just the same  as  other  disorders, yet the law   refuses  to accept  this  theory   in   extenuation of offenses committed  against society;   So with the man in a public  position.    Hecan.iot ple.id   ignorance ia ex-  tenua'tion.of his  effeuse,    I speak oUhe suggestion made by an alderm in,   if proven,   as  coming within the  category of a crime, anci I  am quite sure that   any jury would   take this  view of it:.    I am not in a   position   to state  whether or not there is  auj;   real foundation  f����r the suggestion of this alderman that it appeared to him thatjthe oest way for a civic employee to hold his "position was   t��>   ihr*>w  his  patronage in a certain direction, and I would  be sorry to learn   that   u   i pally had   a sure  foundation ; but  it   appears   to   me   that   it  woold be'weli to have the wound probed to the  bone.    It will Be a   bad dny for Nelson if ihe  idea gets abroad that civic   employe*s have to  pay tribute to any member of tlie council board  in order that they   may  hold  their positions.

Tolmie as Depu.y Minister of  Mines.    The B. C. Mining Exchange  eays : ���' Mr. Tolmie is hailed as the right man  m lhe right place by all parties irrespective of  politics.    To   begin  with,   his   experience  in  connection with" mining matters has been long  and varied, and has been passed through with  credit   to   himsolf;    Further, though, by   no  means a faddist or a theorist, Mr. Tolmie ig a  man of extreme energy and broad ideas, being  thereby all the better fitted to inaugurate and  carry out  successfully certain   trenchant reform*,   which  the   rapid   development-of the  mining  industry   in   Briti.-h    Columbia   has  rendered very necessary.   Lastly, the appoint,  meiit is to be commended because it marks a  departure from the usual method,'unhappily,  too prevalent in this country, of placing gov-  ernmenifavorites in full charge and authority  over departments of whose technicalities r-or  even   reasons   for existence���they   know   no  more than a crossing   sweeper.    In corigratu  lating Mr. Tolmie upon his  appointment,  we  feel we can also congratulate Col.

What chance  would   Mr. Eberts  stand  in   South  Victoria  with  the   Prior-Helmcken influence  against  him ?    Mr.     McPhillips   is . undoubtedly .�����  strong man in Victoria, but there again would  be felt the weight of Harry Helmckea'8 and  and   Col.   Prior's .displeasure.

How would Mr. Tatlow reconcile this renegade movement with his  position as sponsor to the Conservative convention ?    The fact -of the matter is the "new,  Cabinet    would   be  Conservative without  /  party following ?

M. Eberts ; Finance  Minister, R,  G.   Tatlow;    Commissioner    of   Lands   and  Works, BF.  Green ; Provincial Secretary,  A. E. McPhillips ; Minister of  Mines, R. McBride ; President of  th^  Council, C Clifford.  There are many reasons   for  suspecting   that  this new Cabinet exists only in   the minds ef  the men of which it is composed/and there are  several important reasons  for believing thai  the thing will die at  birth.    First, would the  Lieu tenant-Go ver not consent to such a brazen  example of   political  jugglery ?   Sir   Henri  Joly  is too   honorable a   man   to  permit  a  shuffle of this   kind.    Even  if  he Aid,  ivhat  chance wouId   such  a   Cabinet  have  in  the  event of a general election ? It would last just  about as long as the proverbial snowball in  Hades.    Undoubtedly there  are two or three  good men in.thfc."new Cabinet," but the dangerous element preponderates, and would negative the efforts of the good men to accomplish  anything of perpetual   benefit   to the country.  It maybe contended  that   the   men   in'this  Cabinet being more or less in sympathy with  thepolioy of th�� Conservative party, that this  would be,the first move in the direction   of a  party Government.
