The sources of this information  are not given therefore it can be  taken com grano satin:  "Ii, is reported in well inform-  f.sd circles that James Hill, manager of the Great Northern Railway, proposes to run a branch  of that line from Macleod to the  international boundary, follow-1  in*r :i route for which :he C. & E.  secured a charter. This would  j-cive a competing line to British  Columbia and the coast."  - 'The C. P.

It was their aim to  fi*ve this improved sorviceoper  aftive by May 1st.;' but action has  foeen deferred owing to the unsatisfactory state0 of some sec-  rions of the road. These are  being brought to'trim a.s quickly  ' its possible, and it is hoped' that  early in June, Macleod will have  at'daily mail both ways."  shall penetrate the wilds, scale  the mountain peaks and open up  the treasure vaults of nature,  which have so long held out  against the encroachment of  man.  yellow Legged Experts.  Every stage brings one or  more experts of the yellow legging variety, bound for the lower country, says-the Columbia  Review. It wouldn't be a bad  idea to form a'rope committee to  meet these know it-all's.

Newspapers "Will Not Heed It."  The newspaper signature law  passed by the recent California,  legislature went into effect on  the 10th inst., and as many papers iu th'e' state, including the  San Francisco dailies, will pay  no attention to it, , thej-e w;ill  probably be some lively times  for California journalism.  The law provides that all articles published in newspapers  and which reflect on any person's  character or tend to hold him up  to ridicule or contempt, and  tliose reflecting ,on the memory  of the dead shall be signed by  the writers.  1 The penalty for , violation of  this law is a tine of Sii,000 for  each offence, Sf��00 of the fine  going'to the person who ' brings  action against the offending  newspaper.   r ,  The newspaper publishers hold  that- the law is- unconstitutional  and will tichl it in the courts.  , Mr. Wannamaker's Advice.

The time lias now come   whew  we'can sec that, the future  pros-  ' perity of Fort Steele as a mining  town is aii assured fact      There  Is a large  mineral  area  that  is  Iributarv   to  Fort -Steele���Bull  ;i��d EIlc rivers on the east;   Si-.

Mines all over the district arcs improving  as  development progresses, and all we want  ,   .is sufficient means of transportation and a market for our minerals.    A good smelter in this dislrict  would   prove   a   profitable  investment.   '  There are at present many  parties busily engaged in .seeking old channels ou many, of the  ���creeks in tlic district. .Every  vear thousands of dollars' worth  <of gold dust is handled at Fort  .'Steele.  Tho inhabitants of Fort Steele  sire looking forward to a large  influx of capital this year, owing  no the fad that a largo number  of claims have been sold and  bonded during the past season.:  silso to the immense amount of  /.levelopmoni that has taken  place all orer the district.  The North Star will soon be  plying on the Kootenay river between Fort Steele and Jennings,  .Montana. Thi.s i.s another indication of the future prosperity  ni the district.  There is great mining possibilities for British Columbia.  ;Ne\v districts are  being opened  P-uj) and the older districts developed, and it might,'be truthfully  ,-said that from Llie summit of the  ftoeJcy mountains to the shores  <>i Hie   Pacific:  ocean,   the  hills  ���-and���mountains are tilled with  mineral   only  "waiting  the ��� time j  ,v.v)jen    the    tireless   .prospector'  4 .,���   A' Minor Victory.

From Our   Owa l'*irLMi���ilwit  Ottawa, April 22.��� When >o  much has beeu said hy tho Opposition in criticism of the necessary delay which was incurred  in calling Parliament together  it is odd that there is so little apparent desire ou the Left oi* Mr.  Speaker to get down^t_o__busin8ss  now that the session has started.  The fourth week has been euter-  ed upon and 'even allowing tor  the Easter ' holiday* the debate  on,the address has been drawn  out to an mlordinate length.  Everything that can lie >:iid has  been placed before thw country,  not only once   but  hali-a-dozen  ��� times, and a curious feature of  the discussion is, that no sooner  is one hostile criticism disposed  of by the supporters of tlie Government than it is quietly dropped and a new line taken up.  This was most noticeable in  the discussion on the Yukon  administration  last ,\veek".     Sir  ' Hibbert Tupper's' reckless har,-  angue. "was promptly answered  in 10 minutes detail by the Minister of the Interior. ''Mr. Dor-  den (Halifax) following the Minister cwith an entirely e j  NEW  SET  OK   ALLKG.YTlOXfc,       i  Hon.

Money is eas- j  ier, trade is tremendously improved pro.-perity exists on  every hand, much needed public  works (for the development of  the country's resources are being  prosecuted, the public service  has improved in every department, while the cost has not increased. The intelligent busi-'  ness man and the progressive  farmer, applying to the government of the country the samo  principles a.s he applies to his  own business, appreciates these  facts and approves of the necessary expenditure required in the  public services.

One honorable ineniber  occupied   a   couple  of  hours   in  ��� pleasant generalities on ''dead  issues", another repeated what  previous speakers hud said about  ;'broken promises", while a third  sought to cheer the dropping  spirits of his colleagues by the  sapient though noi very original  observation' thai the present  <'oveninicnl had been ������carried  into power by a lucky wave"',  lhat "they had been kept in power till now by a lucky wave",  (though he did not mention  whether or not it was the >aiue  old wave) and that -'it wa.s lucky  for them, that it. was so". wh��re-  ii pon the Oppo.-it.ion cheered,  loudly, iind wore apparently well  .-atistied with the, explanations.  Seriously    though,    it   is  surely  'abiiiit time thai   the   Oppo.-ition  got down to business. ;iwd let up  on their interminable talking,  particuliii'l.) a- they have shown  for several day* past that there  it not hinir new to be .-aid.

The true test  of .statrj.sinnn.ship i.s not to be  gnaped by tliH actual Amount of  money spent, but by the ability  of the country lo carr\ tli" expenditure without it.- becoming  burdensome to the people.
