Nor  did Ihc  difference  end .here.

But in the commons, what a  change is there! Forty percent  or more take their seats for the  first time and the habitues of the  galleries, '.'the newspaper men  and attaches of the House, are  for the time fully occupied in establishing, the idontily of the  many strangers who moot them  at every turn. Even those of  the old brigade who have come  back, have in many instances  changed their seats, and with  the exception of the Treasury  benches aud a score or"so of the  principle members the new lloor  bears small resemblance lo its  immediate predecessor.

The senior  member for Halifax is personally  a distinctly likeable man, even  tempered, courteous and affable.  As a parliamentarian and loader  he has yet to.win his spurs, his  claim to leadership, being of a  negative rather than a positive  character.  TUK^ICINO'S  SPEECH.  . The  speech from   the   throne  contained   as  usual   but little of  interest.    Opening with  an   appropriate reference to the  death  of  Her  late    Majesty,   and   an  equally    appropriate    comment  upon the splendid services rendered by the Canadia.ii contingents  in South Africa.   His Excellency  announced that the Government  still  hoped   that   the   Duke ' of  Cornwall and  York  would   visit  the Dominion on his- wav, home  from Australia, inasmuch^as  he  had accepted the invitation to do  so before the Queen's death.  ��� A  statement lo the effect the Government had learned with   satisfaction   of   the   progress being  made   with    the   Pacific    cable  scheme and .trusted that nothing  might occur to delay its completion, was significant  in  view  of  the report cabled from   England  the  next day.   to the effect that  Canada   was  reconsidering   her  position towards the scheme,  on  account of reported   concessions  to the Eastern   Cable  Company.  The  inference, of course is that  if  any   hitch   has  occurred it is  not of much importance.  While it is well understood  that the Speech from the Throne  is prepared by the Cabinet and  therefore favorable to the Government, there is no.thing to detract'from the value of the opinions officially expressed' therein  by the Governor General. It is  therefore satisfactory to learn  from His Excellency of the progress and development of the  mining aud agricultural interests  of the west. He also awards a  high word of praise to the cold  storage transportation facilities  by means of which a signal success was achieved by the fresh  fruit display at the Paris exhibition.

Fort    Steele   is   the " natural  mining   ctjnter   of   South    East  Kooteuuv.   .  T  HERE   has   been   some  apprehension felt in relation to the erection of  a  smelter  in South' East Kootenay.    It is now beyond question  that the district is now in condition   to   furnish   the   necessary  amount of ore for the successful  operations of a large smelter.   ,  >   It is also beyond all  question  that all   the   necessary requirements' ��� for the, treatment of ore,  ^silver-lead,  gold, copper, wet or  dry ores, lime,  fluxes  and iron,  coal and cbke, an abundant  \va-  \.  ter  supply,   are all found in the  Fori, Steele Mining Division.  ��� '   While smelters in West Koote-  ' nay are  being constructed, and  those  already m  operation  en  - larged. ,to   keep   pace with   the  rapid advance in mining now being made all over'the Kbbtenays,  .,it'would 'seem that South   East  Kootenay was being  overlooked  in this most'important adjunct to  mining, while it isva well known  '  fact that tho silver-lead ores produced in'the district form a large,.  percentage of "the ore now being  reduced  daily,   by   smelters   in  other pa.r,ts"of the country.  The immediate construction of  a smelter in South East Koote-  ,'iiay is a necessity to the rapid development of the district. With  a completed system' of railway  - transportation north and south  through the ' Kootenay valley,  the erection of a smelter capable  of handling the immense production of silver-lead .ore, it would  give new life to the district, and  be,the direct factor in the opening of new mines, trade and business improved, also an influx of  capital for the further development of our mineral resources.  Over 4.r) ounces in silver, from  50 to 00 per cent lead, indicates  the high grade nature of the silver-lead ores produced in the  district.  Copper ore that will run  from  seven to twenty per cent copper,  carrying gold values of $tf to ��50  silver values as  high  as  thirty  ounces, and in many cases a still  larger percentage  of tho   white  metal.    Fluxes having values in  gold aud silver from $10 to *25.  all prove  that   there  is   no  district   in   British Columbia today  that   offers   better  inducements  to   a   smelter  than   South East  Ko otenay.

SATUUDAY,  KKUliUAJiY  Hi,  1!>01.  Self Made and Well Made.  It is sometimes snopvingly isaid  that self made men are badJy  made. That is very Inie jfa  you Mi starts in life wilh. ii�� other  aim than soil" promotion, and no  mentor than his own self-  conceit.. Sir Humphry Davy,  the king of chemist ry, once said,  ''What J am, I have made myself' The key lo his splendid  success is to lie found in the following wo|;ds. which he wrote  when he was an obscure youth:  "1 Jiave. neither riches, nor high  ' birth, nor power to recommend  me; yet, if I live, I trust that L  shall not be of. loss service to  mankind than if ] had been born  with those advantages." If  Davy made himself, he was conscientiously careful Unit the product which he made should ,bc  for the benelit of his fellow creatures, and not for his own emolument or glory.  That is a mighty important  point for everyone who is setting  out in life. ''What did God make  me for?"' is a vital question for  every young man or woman; and  an equally important one for a  christian is: "What did Jesus  Christ make me over again for?  Did he do it for my own enjoyment, or that I might be a blessing to some other people?"  The artful demon that, has  poisoned more hearts and ruined  more lives than any other is the  demon of selfishness. From that  snare and curse may God deliver  us. . o ,  Failure and Success.
