Ottawa Letter.  l,-rom Oui   Own l-oi i-'spondent.  ��� Ottawa, June 12.���The tune  ,-jud attention of ihe Hon.sc of  Commons has been occupied repeatedly thi.s week in di.scusMiu<r  Lljc prospects of ihe Inlornnlion-  :-iIHi,irli Joint Commission when  ?).. reassemble.-,. Everyone who  hnt> followed current eve-Ms with,  even moderate altention, is ihor  onghly well aware ihat- when (he  last adjournment took* place-, Ibe  .statement was official!^ made  iliat a hitch 'had occurred  over the adjustment' of the  .Alaskan boundary. and that the  fidjournniont liiid been made suf-  jieicntly lon��- to enable the matter to be thorouyhly reviewed by  '.'jolh the Imperial and Uniu-d  .'Slates Governments in the hope  .-Ind expectation that a selll.-uient  juiii'ht be reached. ' This siate-  sneat has been rep'eatfd several  'iiines by Sir Wilfrid Laurier and  his. fellfiw commissioners and adhered to absolutely'in \he face  of all kinds of wild rumors to the'  tribal ion to the discussion so far  was made by the Prime Minister  who announced tlnj position of  the Government as follows: "I  cannot for my part see why we  cannot, do in  this  country   what  ha.s been done in other countries  i  notably in England. I cannot  see why we cannot have a Rail  way Commission to deal .with  this numerous class ,of grievances on the part of the general  public" (referring to personal  disputes with the 3"filways), '-J  think* we can agree with that.  At all events I express the views  of the Government when J say  that we think there are 'many  sorts of grievances which could  be effectually dealt with only by  a-Railway Commission. Hut the  trouble and labor and diiiicully  ol framing a law that would constitute Mich a course  makes  the  QUESTION    A     VKIiV     EMKAKHAS-  KJNli   OXK.  I shall not   surprise   my  espec-  contrary.     The 'Opposition  lui's  r  Thus, far   preferred    lo'   accept  these-hostile rumors to the Governments' declaration,-aud if the  country has got', tlie   impression  that   they, would  welcome  ulti-  mala failure,���in that   tlie  Government     would  be   discredited  thereby.���they-have  their own  actions alone io thank.   13ut sud-  den3y. and without any  new  information or any reason for  the  now* change of front! Sir Charles  Tapper'  has    discovered,     that  there is excellent reason to hope  Joida succe'ssl'iil outcome  of  the  negotiations, and he hastens   to  lake back- all   that  he  has  said  .tie}-'galory to the position of Ihe  Dominion and her claims,' and to  fissure tire  Government   of   his  cordial support.   . ���'  'A    OKATIJ--BKD   (JOXVISlisipX.  So  anxious f indeed   does   Sir  Charles appear to  be  to   make  Amends for the past that he eag-  . - tirlv   protl'cVs   the - Government  "  - every assistance'in disposing of  '���the public  business  now  before  tiie, House, -, in   order --that   the  Commissioner's may have leisure  <     'to prepare lor the  reassembling  of the Commission.     But unfor-  timalclv Sir Charles has a string  attached to his offer of support,  for to purchase his goodwill and  ���  assistance he asks-the   Government to drop the   Redistribution  Bill for this session.    This  is  a  ��� big price to pay for "the  assistance tendered",   and  it   is   not  '  very probably that  Sir  Charles  expected the Government Avould  acquiesce.

JiAJIAVAY   COMMISSION.  .Further progress has been  jnade this.week with- the disens-  riinii upon the resolution moved  by Mr- .1. G.' Ituthcrl'ord. (Lib..  JNlacdouald. Man.) calling for the  creation of a board of Railway  Commissioners as referred lo iu  ��ny letter of a couple wweks ago.  A.s 1 2>oinled out then, there has  .been a pretty general concensus  of 'opinion favorable.to thw proposal expressed oil both sides of  tlie House, and the practical dif-  licnlties in making the scheme:  ���effective are equally well recog-  7)3ze&.    The most   valuable con-  And  hon. friends behind iui  ially' my honorable friends from  the Northwest Territories' and  the Province of Manitoba, when  I say that this is a question  which up to the present/time' we  have, not. been able to gnqiple  with in such a wav as to be in  a  '" it  po.sit.ion ���to  present  a  bill   thi.s  session.    But the matter is  en-  gaping the attention of the Gov-,  eminent.      I claim that we have  done something already  for  the  people of the Northwest.    ...  In the very first year  after  we  assumed control of the Administration  we   obtained   from   one  great transportation company of  the Northwest Territory, that is  to sa'y the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,' a nol able  reduction in  its  freight, rates.'     But  we do nol think that we have ex-'  liausted our efforts on behalf  of  tho people of the Northw.cst. On  the contrary we think there is a  great deal to be done in that respect  and we   think   that, one  thing that can be done  in  order  to solve the problem is to clojust  what is  asked  by   this   resolution".   ��� '     ���     , ' ���  y        e  While this great transportation q nestion must in tlie very  nature oi things be of greater im-'  porta nee to the. Western Provinces and Territories.' that im  porlance is only a matter of degree; it is of great moment to all  tho Provinces, and the creation  of a commission to adjudicate  npon the matters of dispute between the railways and the public, will vastly benefit our people  in all parts of the Dominion.  Till':       PAliiMICKS       ICXOXlCltATlSI").  Tn a recent letter I referred' at  length tfi evidence given  before  the  Agricultural  Committee   of  the House of  Commons   which  showed that considerable crookedness had been practised iu the  packing and shipping of  apples  Lo the British market.   The matter was further discussed at some  considerable length in the House  this week, when it  was   pointed  out that the farmers  personally  were no  way ��� responsible,   inasmuch as their fruit was purchased   by   jobbing   middlemen   who  did Iheiivown packing.      It  is of  course satisfactory to learn  that,  the farmer is   not   to  blame   for  the extreme folly, to say nothing  of the dishonesty of  the  course  that is complained of.  It is scarcely necessary   to  add   however  that it   is  just   as  important  as  ever that every effort should   be  made to stop this fradulontpack-  ing.    The 1-Jritish buyer does not  ilistinguish    between     producer  and packer.      If he buys Canad  ia.n apples and they prove unsatisfactory he blames the country  and its traders   as  a   body,   and  wants no more If) do with   them.  The Minister of Agriculture rendered the country tin inestimable  service in so emphatically calling  attention totlie matter for. as he-  said,   the   Government's   agents  in England had proved conclusively that the  accusations  were  true, and whoever  was  responsible had done a;great' wrong  to  the '.Dominion'aiid|'had endangered tlie: large h'ttdo' which Canada  had. built up by honest methods  and which had resulted in a  great deal of good to ihe' conn-  try.

How Canada is   Advertised  Abroad.  ,The Canadian Paciiic Railway  Oompuny 'has the   repiilation   oi  being a pretty   good  advertiser,  but   many  doubtless   would    be  surprised to learn that its publi  cations   are   put   to   uselul   purposes iu foreign hunts.     In a recent number  of  tho   Now   York  Outlook Mr.'   (5bo.    Keniian   ha.s  an hitcro.st'nitf article on the '���Regeneration of Cuba," in which is  ���  incidentally told how thoroughly  Canada is advertised   abroad   by  Ihis company.    Mr.  Keniian described    his,  visit    to   a    Cuban  school, in which   he   says:    "'At  .    -Ul Sagarra street,,, for  example,  J visited with   Major Barbour  a  ��� private dwelling where.' in two  rooms that, corresponded roughly  tO'the1 front and back parlor of  an American house,   there,   were  or crowded l<>l���boy.s, ,from six to  twelve .years of age, without  deslrs. le.vt.books or slates, and  almost  without   blackboards or  ��� .'suitable maps.    The principal of  i  this   school  was  an   intelligent  1 young    Cuba'rK    named    Ramon  -Martine/.,' a'graduate of the University of   Havana,   who   had in  ,his scanty library Mich books as  Wickersham's  --Methods of   .lu-  sCVuction," Sully's "Psychology  of Touching."  Froobel's   "Edu-  cation  )l'cMiin."   nearly   all   of  Herbert    Spencer's   works   and  the educational books of.Currie,  Sheldon   and   Pitch:   but   whose  whole teaching outfit..or plant if  I may so call it, consisted, of two  small blackboards,'a map of half  the world on , a globular   projection, issued as an advertisement  of the Canadian Paciiic Railway  , Company,   one-   worn,   tattered  ���copy of Ollendorff New,Method  of,Learning English.'' a few 'lo-  <.-ii.l�� buUerilies.    minerals ., and  -, shells of his own collection, half  . a. dozen kindergartcn'cnbes. pyramids,"* spheres,/.etc.,   of  glass,  -which he In id   bought  with  his  own money.' and a  small   assorl-  ni��ut*of second hand carpenter's  'tools.     With'the   single copy of  Ollendorf he  was  teaching   104  ft boys English, and  by  means of  .the Canadian Paciiic advertising  Chart'.he   was  endeavoring    to  make them acquainted with dhe  world "in   which    they    lived."  Canadian   Paciiic officials  claim  that no better maps, are ^needed  for  teaching   in   the  schools  of  Cuba or any other country  than'  those   issued''by   the  company.  The'one alluded to by   MY. Kenyan, shows the world on a proper  y.t.. ,        ^  scale   iind    is  not distorted,   as  some charts are,frequently liable  to be. and   being  on   Mcreator's  projection, is absolutely correct  ���Montreal Herald.  eouver Island before and   which  will place this mine as the  leading one on tho  island and   the  Alpha of the mining industry in  and around Alberni     This,  with  other, late  finds,  goes  to  show  that; wo are on the eve of a ljros-  perity   which   will   develop   the  various claims and   give  to   the  Jong waiting, grey haired  pros  pec-tor his   reward  for   patience  and hard labor.
