Now we find electricity em-  -ployed for hoisting, pumping,  drilling and all lhe operations"of  mining. There was a hitch  about the drill, the gadder and  the coal cutter,- but these have  been overcome, so if'issafoto  say that there i.s nothing done  in mining- which'' can - be, done  with steam power .directly. ,or  indirectly by, compressed air or'  wire rope . fransmissioirT-.which  cannot, be done, equally  by electricity.-   , '        a  A noteworthy plant, which is  now in the preparatory stage of  installation in   this  district,   we  now up to the'opposition  to   toll  how lln- rontl niat'liiii.' worked  British Columbia lias" a claim  against t ho dominion amounting  fo not loss than sHU'OO.oOO.

°, When tho burglar reproached
his friund, the maid servant, be-
ctiuso she had failed to poison
the watch dog as she promised
to do she replied: ,_,■•! was afraid
of being dismissed if I killed it,
bill  / polled O'd hu// iti teeth."
Hon.   Air.   Fielding  can make
the  same  excuse   when his free
trade   Jrionds   reproach'  him for
adopting     lhe   clumping   clause
proposed     by  '  certain     manufacturers   as   a     preventive   of
.slaiiijjitering.    t As explained  in
the-last number of  Industrial
Canada   the   Gocvrnnienl1 was
a&ked    to   provide'    that-   when
foreign goods wore sold to Csjjna-
cliitns below the- market  price'iu
country ol production the difference   between   the • fair  -market
price   and -the  slaughter "price
should   bo  added   to   the duties.
Mr., Pickling accepted   the  proposal with lhe limitation that  in
genera 1    practice     the    special
dlilies -shall   not   exceed  50 per
cent, of the ordinary duties  and
thiil     in     trie    case   of   cerlain
spocitied items in, lhe iron sqhod-
ul'"1 ihey shall riol exceed l.'i  per

Sir Wilfrid JLnurior has stilted
thai the duties on goods imported from the ■United States
average rW per cent, and that it
is ihe regular practice for United
Stales manufacturers to sell to
the Canadian consumer at least.
.'Hi per op nt.' below the market
price in the United States. Thus
the duin ping clause on t.He
average will provide for 14 .per
cent, special duty or less than
hall ihe'cul which according to
Sir, Wilfrid Laurier it is the
custom y:> make. In asking
Parliaiii'.'iil to enact this law the
govorniiu'iii acknowledged that j H£
dumping is a serious evil and
ihii-i/ii ouyhi lo be  stopped, but
\Vhere_would Duncan Ross get
off at. if the Dominion election
in Yale-Cariboo was held-on the
same date as the election will be
held in other constituencies in
Canada? \ If Lillooet. one'of the
eight Provincial ridings , embraced in Yale-Cariboo Dominion riding, has 84 more Conser-'
vatives -, than Liberals, Duncan"
will be' snowed under. But as
the election in Yale-Cariboo,is
to be held after the returns are
in from the other constituencies
iu Canada, Duncan, if Canada
goes Liberal, hopes to be a
winner.—Nelson Tribune.    '
