Ottawa Letter.  From Our   Own Correspondent.  Ottawa, April 17.--The politi-  <��d event of the week has  Suten the speech of the Min-  netur of the Interior in the House  ��jg Commons, in reply to Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper's extra  <��rdinary harangue of last week,  against the Government generally, and the Department and  *be Minister of the Interior very  fKJi-ticulftrly, in connection with  Bheiv administration of .the Yu-  ?kon gold fields.- Both speeches  will live in the parliamentary annals of Canada, but for very dif-  tterent reasons:���that of the ex-  Minister of Justice will long  Siarild the record awarded it by  Y>fr. Sifton when he .remarked.  "I shall be in the judgement of  fihu�� House and the country when  I say that there has never been  3k. speech delivered by a  rospon-  .  ���-��*}>le member of the House, an  t-x-minister of the Crown, and a  UVivy Councillor; which has contained   so   many   untrue   statements". Mr. Sifton's own speech  rijt. explanation and  vindication,  til the policy which has been i'ol-  Vtrm'ed by his department, bristl-  ��-t*a -with facts,   overflowed with  <����ear- cut,    unequivocal    state-  'nuznts, supported  and amplified  fc,y   documentary  evidence,   and  juanotated throughout by names  *ad dates, held the attention of  -1 ttoeHoiiseunwearyiugly throughout the live hours and a half that  it. took to deliver, and when read  ,%- the .country' side by side with  Sir   Charles   Hibbert   Tupper's  0<Uafcribe,    the   electorate   from  ' Halifax   to   Victoria   will ,hav6  Hftfcle difficulty in estimating each  stfr its true value.   -  A SIGNIFICANT ,,SOBRIQUET.    ,  L't was a tedious task imposed  ' upon the Minister of the Interior  fit.at of wading through the mass  <4f verbiage, and picking out  siseh statements as-were 'definite  ,, enough to be��pecially answered.  und thou searching through the  mass o'f'departmental corresponds nue to a,scortIai'n'wliat'the''facts  'ircally were, that these might be,  pfcteed before the House, side, by  -side with the fantastic stories of  t'h-fc imaginative and apparently  somewhat' gullible member for  'I^tetou. Mr.' Sifton has been derisively dubbed' by his, oppon-,  'The young "Napoleon ,of  KiltS,  tbe   Administration":���listening ment policy throughout was  in  ing Vague enough at the starl,  no sooner was a statement challenged, than the speaker shifted  his ground aud declared he said  something else, or at any rate,  meant something else. I have  only room for one instance of  this���Sir Charles Hibbert Tup-  per declared that (I quote from  Hansard) ' 'a heeler and friend of  theirs," (theGovernment's) "also  a member of the Bar, was able  in the city of-Victoria to charge  and collect a fee of sfnOO because  he was able by telegram and by  letter To obtain from the Minister  "of the Interior a permit for his  clients to send liquor into the  Yukon".  A  SAMPLE  OK   THK   "UHAUOKS".  This     assertion,'       indefinite  though it was, and it was intentionally indefinite, that a straight  denial might be impossible,  was  so promptly and uncomprisingly  deniedfthat it took the assorters  breath away, though he shortly  recovered sufficiently   to   make  the coarse remark:   '"I am   not  surprised at the Minister of the  Interior,  making such a-state-  ment.   because it   is   absolutely  impossible at this time for  him  to know  whether it is true or  not".      But   Sir   Charles   Hibbert   Tupper ' reckoned    without his host?  It was possible, for  the' Minister, to know there was  no truth in the statement, for,the  very   simple   though   sufficient  reason that .no permit had been  granted to anyone at any  time,  through the intercession of such  party or parties described in the  assertion of the member for Pic-  tou' "*   Then that honorable gentleman    promptly    shifted     his  ground and declared that-he had  said there was not a Liberal  in  British Columbia who would not  believe that a fee of $500 could  be obtained'for '-the simple ser-  vice of telegraphing a request to  the Minister of the Interior for  a liquor permit''.     This  is ,the  amended allegation���totally different to the original, and even  opponeuts   of    the    Opposition  could -not* refrain  from  pity  at  tlie spectacle of its responsible  leader's making so, sorry  an   exhibition of themselves. ,. .  A    SUMMARY - OF     THE     rNDJUT-  ,    MENT..  It is not possible within the  limits of this letter to go over  the wide area covered by the debate upon this question: the  charges may, be briefly summarized   thus:���That r the    Govern-  criticism that he dealt with the  matter -'at tiresome length" it  certainly is '���tiresome" to be so  convincingly answered, Continuing Mr. Sifton called attention  to the fact that the principal appointments were warmly commended by theConservative press  at the time they were made and  that if the wrong doing had oc  curred the culprits had gone  back on all their previous records for uprightness and probity.  Coming to the question of'min-  isterial   responsibility   for    the  conduct of the officials the Minister quoted from   Sir   Charles  Hibbert   Tupper's   speech:���''I  charge more against "the Minister of tho Interior for all I am  going to say x   x    x     He cannot in fairness shelter' himself  behind their (the officials')  misconduct;   he   stands   primarily  charged  with  all  the  rascality  and all the nefarious conduct of  these men"'.     This sounds well  of course but unfortunately'  for  Sir Hibbert he has placed himself on record aa holding' very  different   views under different  conditions..   .Quoting from>the  Handsard   of   1895',   Mr.  Sifton  gave the same gentleman's opia  ion when the Conservative members of that day wore 'charged  with the responsibility   of   the  notorious boodling going ou under their very noses in this ^city  and in Montreal.    Then the idea  was   laughed   to- scorn  by Sir  Charles   Hibbert   Tupper,   who  pointed out that even Imperial  Miuisters could  not hold  their  positions long if such a principal  was admitted.    ���       ���  As to the retarding of the  country aud the injury to the  good name of the Dominion, the  sooner the Opposition' realize  the unwisdom ,of further reference to these matters in the light  of their own reckless, policy the  better for their reputation "for  sanity.        . - , '    -  Sullivan Diamond Drills  Most accurate  and  most,economical  prospect-'  ing  drills made.

What   were   the   charges,   so  long threatened  and  at   length  produced with  such 'Nourish  of  .fcruinpets?   The same old stor.ios,  fclie identical allegations, :tlie an  f-myuious     minor's    grievances,  the  shadowy prospector's indefinite assertions.   There might be  ^omc    .small     excuse.     though  mighty small, for newspapers to  arive currency to interviews tilled  -with generalities,   and  the aim-  Less ravings of disappointed adventurers, but  for  a  prominent  member    of    parliament   after  months of preparation  and  en-  ���jttiry to offer .nothing more delin-  }tf w tangible, not a single now  uarao or date that   would inden-  fcify   the scores of hearsay  rumors-1 so long doing duty in the  absence of anything  more substantial upon which to base the  "Scandals"���is to���say least, distinctly disappointing.  Moreover, the spirit with  which the ex-minister of Justice  approached the subject and the  . fticiie he adopted in .presenting so  extremely grave a niatter to.'the  House was distinctly disappoirit-  compctenu and totally inadequate  to the needs, that the officials  were appointed for their services  without regard lo their qualifications and as a result they had  proved incapable and crooked,  that the Government should  have,known all this and must be  held responsible for its officials'  misdeeds if there are any to be  held responsible for and that the  development of the, Yukon is retarded because of all this' aHd  the fair mime of Canada sullied  oni account of the ''scandals"  which have resulted.  With a patience and physical  endurance which astonished his  hearers and with a thoroughness  and conclusiveness which convince every reasonable man on  both sides of the House and will  with equal certainty .convince  the country, tlie Minister of the  Interior took up the charges sor-  iatuin and answered them.     He  ' The Production of Silver.  The production of silver presents   some"    peculiar * -.phases.  There is no special effort being  made 'to .mine   silver .yet   the  world's production last year was_-  the greatest ever known, amounting to'over  1110,000,000  ounces.  Iu the United States the production was also considerable, reaching 00,000,000 last year, as against 5a,80U ounces in "1897.     This  steady    increase   in   production  despite the falling price  of  the  metal must bo accounted for because of the enormous increase in  the output of gold,   copyjer' and  lead, of which metals it is a bye-  product.    Another phase, not so  easily accounted for. is the weakness in price.     In  the  last six,  years   the   output   of gold , has  doubled and one would suppose  that silver, the price to which is  measured in gold, would advance  but instead it has   had  a  downward tendency and last year gave  tho lowest average price on record. ' The steady advance in the  price of stable articles attributed  to the increased gold production  should also apply to silver, and  why it has not done so  may   be  because tho advances  noted  are  really due to other causes, such  as the tariff, trust manipulations  and   supply   and   demand,   and  that' prices of commodities have  not   yet   beeif affected   by   the  great increase in the production  of gold.  gave the history of the   country Alaskan Boundary,  from the hour he  assumed   con-      Washimjton.-Whon the United  trol of its administration,  show- Slates recenlly proposed  a   mo  ed  how  events had crowded in dus   vivondi    ()11    tho    Alaskan  upon one another  and  develop-  boumljll.v Ui overcome  the  pos  ments  occurred,   which   no  one sibiHty "of   a   lawless  outbreak-  could possibly anticipate, so that 1M.ndhia: thc 1in:l] adjustment'the  action which wa.s perfectly wise p,,.ilish ;uithorUies referred  lhe  at one time might have been un-  im)1,(tein���n to the Canadian olli-  advisablc had it been .possible to (.;a]S .^ Ottawa,  look ahead a couple of weeks.

P. R., says:  "The public has no pledge of  good faith from the company in  purchasing lots in their town-  sites.  "Mr. Forrest remarked that  "fhe day might not be far dis-  "taut when even Cranbrook  ���'might be broken up in the same  "way as Donald, and now although the company had made  "representations that this was  "to be their favored townsite of  "the Crow's Nest road'.

The Enterprise' ore chute ��� i.-> from one to  three feet in width and has been  proven to a vortical depth of 500  feet and 1500 feet in length. The  .work put thus far on the property gives about 4,000 of drifting,  and it would require two years  or more for a force~o�� -00 inen to  take out the ore now standing iu'  the workings. Forty thousand  ions of ore is blocked out; u]i-  wards of 1000 tons has been  .-.hipped, paying, all the expenses  ,of development; 900 tons' are at  the Ten-miJe wharf." ready 'for  shipment, aud about 200 tons are  on the dumps at the mine.* The  ore runs %8ft per ton.  dor Mr. Simpson to open a  branch of the Bank of British  North America in the Atlin district broke all previous records  on the trip in, notwithstanding  that Mr. Simpson was suffering  from the effects of a sprained  ankle. Five officials and an as-  sayer were in the party when it  left here ou the steamer City of  Seattle on March 14th last with  15 tons of supplies includiug an  unwieldy safe. Skagway was  reached on tlie 17th and left on  the 20th. On the 23rd Log Cabin  was reached and i n two days less  45 minutes the party all iu good  health arrived in Atlin. The  branch of the bank was opened  on the 25th, the day of arrival.  This lightening trip was made  without mishap and can only be  considered ve'rv remarkable.

Washington.���A   crisis' it    is  said has about  been reached in  the   controversy    between   the  American owners   of   Canadian  limber in the province of Ontario  and the. parliament of that province  which  recently" passed  an  act prohibiting  the exportation  of all logs.    The Ontario officials  have so construed this act as  to  apply it to all timber > purchased  ,and paid for by 'Americans prior  to the passage of the' act.     The  retroactive effect of this legislation, if maintained, it is said: will  be   lo   render   worthless   large  holdings of Canadian ' stum page  purchased   by  Americans  from  the.crown   lands department of  Ontario, and also to prevent the  operation of extensive  sawmills  creeled  on   the   American  side,  which have  no  other source of  .supply than the Canadian timber  referred to.-.  When these"conditions became  known to the American timber  owners they t memorialized the  government of the United States  to make reclamation from Great  Britain as the United States had  no diplomatic relations with  Canada. The matter was referred to the joint high commission,  but that body having taken no  action, a committee of limber owners, headed by ex-Governor  Itien of Michigan came to Washington a few days before the commission dissolved and asked tho  secretary of the treasury to impose the retaliatory clause of the-  ( Dingley act. It is said secretary  i Gagu intends to apply thts retali-  jalory clause of the Dingley act  forthwith in default of an assurance from the Canadian government that the provincial act referred to .shall not be construed  to prevent the exportation of  logs purchased and paid for by  Americans prior to the passage  of the act Whether this rolali-  to the  extent   of  The Steele House  SASI AND O00RS  to  close    out     cheap  taking    the    lot.  one  i Fort Steele Mercantile Co., Ltd.  w  E  S  T  GREAT  Northern  Railway.
