Ottawa Letter.  From Our  Own Correspondent. .     -���  Ottawa. April 10.���The trade  mid navigation returns for the  ,l��st fiscal year have just been  presented to the House, and they  ' makeup a bulky volume pres-  , anting a mass of figures, bewild:  tiring in variety and detail. The  aggregate trade of Canada was  ��� $304,495,730, of which $104,152,-  <-j88 were exports and $140,323,-  r'>r,3 imports. Tho increase in  the ' aggrogate , trade over the  previous year was $17-,300,000.  The duty increased from $19,-  391,000 in 1��97 to $22,157,000 in  1898 in spite of the substantial  reduction in the tariff. The trade  '    with'1 C4reat   Britain   was nearly  ", $21,000,000 greater, and with the  United States $13,300,000 more,  while the,trade with Great Britain excedetl that with tho. United  States by $13,000,000. It is in-  1 cresting to note, too, that while  there has been an ,annual aver-  jvge excess since Confederation  of imports over exports, of $1">,'-  4S0.O0O. last' year the excels of  exports over imports wa.s nearly  $24,000,000.      Canada's   exports  ��� lo Great Britain increased tremendously, in fact the excess  over the previous your is greater  than the'whole exportation of  r\in Uuiled States.,   ���  OliU  KOHKHiN   TKADK.  As to other countries, our trade  with France increased over forty  jj>er cent, and there were also,, increases'.in Newfoundland and  South America, and slight decreases with Germany, West Indies. China and .Japan. It is also  -worth noting that every division  of exports'increased except lumber and other products of,the  forest. The products of, the  mines and-fisheries? animals and  'their'produce, agricultural' ��� products, manufactured goods, bullion and coin, till showed .advances. The greatest increase, and  ' l hig fact is of paramount inipor-  , tancePwas in the exportation of  irrain.   which " almost . doubled,    tive  co-operation  on  the. spot.  being   $33.78:!.000" in    1898,'    as .How much ntight be accomplish-  agiiiiust $17;.432,000 in 1897, wheat  .oiidvanced: from $9.2(io.000 to $21.-  1 ��)33.000.   and   of   the '$20,9(5(5,000  ''-which" Great .Britain   imported  ��1(5.477.000  was 'grown  in Can^  ada. /Flour and, meal   advanced  iron) $2,201,000 to $0.01(5.000 and  oats from #I,��J3,000  to  $3,320.-  1'000.     Altogether  the details of  Canada's trade in 1898 fully bear  (Hit the claims of  progress   and  (���prosperity which  were  made  in  ndvau.ce.-and are 'intensely  significant  of  the tremendous  impetus thathas been given to the  business of the country   by   the  new    methods    introduced    and  prosecuted   by   die   present  administration.  ��SMI(iltATION   WOUK   IN    HKTTAIN.  �� (. A recent issue of the Canadian  Cassette. (London', Eng.) has a  lengthy article oh emigration'  lo Canada from which the following extracts are given:���  "It is significant t.o   nolo   that  iAui  figures for   1898  so  far   as  /Panada is concerned wort!  much  larger    than    in    the    previous  voars, and, further, that Canada  .stands' alone   in  this respect, as  5n ovary other case  a decline   is  recorded.     If   the   returns  were  H>ased   upon   easily   ascertained  facts    i lie     Canadian     increase  would   be   even   more   marked.  Moreover the  efforts   to  attract  .-suitable settlors to the Dominion  have been energetically continued throughout  Ihe  past   twelve  mouths.    Canada has been widely  rtdverlised in  the  press  of  the  United Kingdom.     The  representatives of the  Canadian  Government and  the  Canadian   Pacific   Kail way    Company     have  been actively employed in lecturing,   visiting   agricultural   fairs,  markets and shows, and   in  disjoin minafi ng   information   a*   to  ihe  resources   of   the   country.  Educational work among the. rising   generation,   lias  beo.u .fully  .maintained with the co-operation  of   the   two  o.r .thre�� thousand  school masters with whom bolh  of these agencies are in correspondence. , Lantern lectures  have been in great demand, and  a highly successful new, departure has been made by the Canadian Pacific Railway with a  series of animated photographs  of Canadian life, which has prov  ed extremely popular.  THE  LIMITATION  OF  THE  WORK.  One or two of the conditions  under which this work is carried  on must, however, always be  borne in mind. The class of  emigration which alone can be,  and is officially encouraged, is  distinctly limited. The capitalists and farmers who are always  welcome belong to a section of  the community which is proverbially slow to emigrate, and the  farm laborers today are in many  cases sufficiently content with  his position and prospects to  hesitate to seek a new home in a  strange land. Moreover a large  proportion of the ' enquiries i-e-  ceivwd by all,who are connected  with emigration work come from  people who. however, well qualified otherwise, have .not, the  means to cross the Atlantic. Until some means is provided for  overcoming' or minimizing this  difficulty Canada has no, '-open  door" for them.1 In fact, till this  problem is solved, and solved it  assuredly could be if resolutely  approached in a business spirit,  with a clear conception of- the  conditions to be "taken into account, the Dominion1 cannot hope  to attract to her. broad acres the  ���'land hungry" who, given this  help, would speedily be numbered among her prosperous citizens. ' a "  ���HOW' VVK   MAY. IIKl.P   JT  ON.  '���Meanwhile'and subject to  these limitations; the immediate  prospect is, as we have said, distinctly satisfactory.' Iu'1899, as  in 1898, Canada can justifiable  expect to obtain not only the  largest proportion but also -the'  cream of1 tlie emigration wliich  leaves the United Kingdom.' And  Canadians themselves could .further improve the outlook by  ac-  THF. 14IOMT SORT OF PAUPERS.  According to the officials of  more than one bank in'Winnipeg  a large number of the newly arrived Doukhobors have already  opened accounts and many have  cashed drafts for considerable  sums, brought with ' them from  Russia. A picturesque little  story is going the rounds of the  Western press to tho effect that  quite a crowd of interested passers collected on Main street the  other day to watch through the  uncurtained windows of a leading bank a small party of free  and independent Doukhobors  counting over quite unconcernedly, on a large seat just inside  the window, a pile of bank bills  aud gold coin. .' The bank above  claims-to have cashed as many  as- thirty drafts in one day.  These are the "Paupers" forsooth, of which we heard so  much not long ago.  ed if zealous emigration councils,  in every district were ready to  welcome the new, arrivals, and  advise'and help new settlers, and  by correspondence with the English press supply from their own  experience just the practical information foipwhioh the intending emigrant seeks. Here is a  wide and promising field for. patriotic Canadian effort. Is not.  the time'ripe for at least the  tirst'steps in this direction?"    '  THEY   HAVE   TROITRI.K  OF  THE1U  OWN.  The re-organization , of the  Conservative' party which was  undertaken'" a short time ago  with such a flourish of trumpets  by Sir Charles Tupper. does not  appear to ��� be making much  headway. In his speech on the  address'the other day the veteran leader impressively warned  tlie Government that lie would  personally stump Quebec in op  position to the proposed Senate  reform: within two days the  Government candidates in Levis  was returned in the bye-election  by acclamation, and yet Quebec-  is the Province where tlie re-organization i.��. supposed to be furthest advanced, and Levis is a  constituency that lias been as  often represented by Con.serva-  tives as by Liberals and was  only carried by the late Mr.  Guay at the last, general election  by a very moderate majority.  Now it is announced that' the  prosposed Dominion convention  wliich was to be held here by  the party dui'ing the pre.s��nt session is to be postponed to a more  convenient sea.son for many leaders and would-be leaders realize  that such a gathering would only  emphasize the woeful lack of  harmony within their ranks, the  chaos that exists iu tlie matter  of a policy and the radical differences of opinion-.thai prevail a��  to.'who are and who'..should' be  .1 ea.de j ".s..  "What a Kile a. Minute Moans to the  Locomotive Making It.  At sixty miles an hour the resistance of a train is four time as  great as it isat thirty miles-that  is, the fuel in one' case  must be  four times as great  in  one  case  as it is in the other. But at sixty  miles an hour this fuel must be  exerted for a given  distance  in  half ,the time that it is at  thirty  miles;   so  that   the. amount, ot  power exerted and steam generated in a given   period  of  time  must be eight times as great at  the faster' speed.     This   means  that the capacity  of the   boiler,  cylinder and other parts must be  greater, with a corresponding addition to the weight of  the  ma  chine.  l Obviously, therefore, if  the weight per wheel, ou account  of the limit of weight  that the  rails   will   carry,   is   limited,   a  point.is soon'reached where  the  drivings wheels and other parts  cannot be further enlarged,  and  then'the maximum of speed  is  reached.     The nice  adjustment  necessary in tlie various parts ���of  these immense  engines  may  be,  indicated by some figures as  to  the   work- performed   by. . these  parts   when   the   locomotive  is  worked at high-.speed.-^rr,-^,-^--  Takea passenger engine on one  of the. big lines. ' At sixty'miles  an hour,a driving wheel ii-A feet  in diameter revolves dive times  every second, so that the reciprocating part of-each cylinder,  including one piston, piston rod.  'cross-head and connecting rod,  weighing about bT>0 pounds.' must  move back and forth a distance  equal to thoslrokc (usually two  'feet) every time Ihe wheel revolves, or in the fifth of a, second.  This weight starts from a state  of rest .it the end of each stroke  of the piston and must acquire a  velocity of 3.r)feet per second in  one-twentieth of a second, and  must be brought to rest in the  same period of time.  A piston 18 inches in diameter  has an areaoC2f)4-A square ii.chos.  Steam of lr>0 pounds .pressure  per square inch would therefore  exert a force on the piston equal  to 38.175 pounds." This force is  applied alien-irately on each side  of tlic piston ten times in a second.���Mrninij and Scientific I'rrss.

The   further  development of  the properties in the vicinity  of  the    Sullivan    group   is   being  watched with interest by mining  men fillover the dominion.    The  , North Star is one of,the greatest  ���mines on  the" American  coritin-  ent.and   the  Stemwinder  is   ro-  1 garded as a fine property.     ���  a' The Big Chief is _ a  sure" win-  " ner,   and   is one of  the richest  gold propositions in  the  northwest; the Estella will be another  monument fo the  mining  industry of the district.  Some (worii.y claims of more  or loss'inerit luive been bonded  or sold during the past month,  and considerable work will be  clone towards their development  during the coming season.  While Fort Steele has not experienced a mining boom, the  active development of" the mineral properties in the main range  of the Rocky mountains, all  tributary 1o the town, is giving  jo Fort Steele importance as being a mining center as well as  the commercial center *ol South  East Kootenay.  way corporations, who recogniz  ing the  importance of  this  immediate section, have surveyor-*  iu  the  lield   the objective point,  being Fort'Steele.    The backers  of the  new  railway  enterprises  are    aggressive " and . purpose  to       develop   ,    trie        mineral  resources of this district and   to  that end  the  surveys are being  made to points which will  stimulate, mining development.    Not  only will, this  district' be'-bene-  iitted   but  the  country    to   the  north is being explored   and   all  of the rich'miuenil section tributary   to   Windermere 'will     be'  tapped.by the new railway.    'Of  course as" it might liave been expected, this activity has aroused  the C.   P.   R.   people and their  surveyors are in the field following closely the trail of  the new'  men.    As a  result  Fort  Steele  will receive the attention   it  deserves and in spite of everything  will   retain  its  supremacy  as a'  mining and industrial   center  of.  East Kootenay.

A  good  many  fortunes  have been  made  by promoters   of copper  mines, and one big one���that of  8. fiigolow, who is rated  to  be  '    worth $10,0011,OUO.     He "inherited his copper interests from   his  father and has greatly amplified  them.    Thomas  W.   Lawson, is  the broker whose name  is most  frequently    mentioned    in    the  ,    papers.    He  advertises  a' good  deal, publishing long statements  in the Boston newspapers about  ���  the business he is interested  in.  f hear the names of a good many  "new rich "young men  who are  beginning  to  bo  known in the  financial world,  but the names  '   ofBiglow and   Lawson overtop  all others in the copper speculation.

'   -The   tSemlin     administration  have made a mistake  in   retaining in officials who -'knife" them  at"every opportunity.    All  such  officials should have been politely ' i-equested ,to  resign,   and  if  they   refuse   to   take  the  hint,  their    successors    should    have  been named.     It  is  not yet too  late.     Tt   is   not  a   question  of  .  spoils: if is a   question   of good  government.''     No    government  will be a .success.who.se subordinate officials are not in sympathy  With   its  responsible  heads;   no  more than a railway or any other  corporation can whose employees  arecontinually plot ting to thwart  the aims  of,the'men   entrusted  with its management.-- /umiho/is  ' Sentinel.  The above, article might be  very appropriately applied to  this constituency. If an official  -cannot meet, the '"powers that  be" in a friendly spirit, without  knifing them behind their back's,  then the only remedy is to resign and get out.  inger contracted for 20 tons at  $200, to be shipped at. once.

Of the total 'product felO.000,-  000 was taken from the Klondike.  Estimates place the output from  the Klondike this year at ��20.-  000.000 and British Columbia is  also expected to do much better"  than in previous .years, so that  Canadians hone Canada will soon  be near the top.  The yield of 'silver is also  growing larger from year to  year. Jn 1897, if was *3,32-Vwr,��  supplied chiefly by the ^ British  Columbia silver mines.'

The tri]> down   the   Kootenay
river is a   most delightful one.
but    its   disadvantages   are  apparent when   passengers   bound
for Fort Steele aret unloaded   at
Goat Kivcr Landing. On Sunday
last   a   pjirty  came  down  from
Bonner's   Ferry,   and   on   being
landed al   Coat  River  Landing
found no teams to carry them to
Creston. and there they were   iu
sight of the town and   the   walking exceptionally bad'.   Finally a
team was chartered from an   Indian, who unloaded  a   hay   raak
and put on a wagon bed. the passengers were loaded and fhe start
made.    Such a ride.     Ovar   mo-
a.ss, through stumps,   the   party
were taken, and the Indian never
missed a chuck hole  or  stump.
The  town was   finally   reached
after a drive not to exceed   two
miles, occupying  two  and   one-
half hours.    The verdict of each
one was that if ever   they  came
that way again Coat River Landing will be avoided.
