The ap])licalion for a charter,
or incorporation, for, a, rail way
frdni Crawford.-, Hay to Fort
Steele does not necessarily mean
iinin.adiu.te construction although
it is probable that whoever is
cbacking the scheme intends to
proceed at an early date to build
a road.    A railway coming down
'   the St. Mary'.s would make avail-
' able one of the greatest mineral"
sections   in'    I-5ritish''  Columbia.
' While nothing is known definitely it is s>usped«d that the Creat
Northern has a hand in this   ap-
'   plication,   as  it' iA in a line with
/> its pojicy of putting out feeders
when .there .is  possible" traffic.
" Such a road as projected would
be of great benefit to Port Steele
and the-tribntary country, and it
is to be hoped that construction
will not long be delayed.

The elections in" the United
States is over. MeKinley has
been re elected;  the "full dinner
' pail" was the potent factor.
. While the indications nil point-
, ed to the re-election of MeKinley
the,Bryan prophets all prophe-
siased that he was llic future
President. 'The ".silent .voter,"
■that'is, of men who think, who
will not indicate their intentions
in advance, wore the ones that
' gave success to the Republicans..
The real crux of the Ml nation
was Nrew York, without which
Bryan coulcl not win, while MeKinley could. Indiana was'considered doubtful, but both New
York' and Indiana were the
states  that   cooked    thr*   Bryan
, *    *    *.
0  The election of Mr.  -Bryan   as
President,of  the-   Uniled   States
.- -would be little less than a calamity to the United States.

Reports from all parts of this

'  Tlio National Review publishes  striking articles  lorcibly  pointing out-Great Britain's dire need  of political, and economic  reconstruction, the inadequacy of both  the'navy and'"a Tiny, as at present  '- estimated, to meet  possible f and  '. ovcii'probable  emergencies   and  1    the  inability  ol   the  country to  cope  with  a    sudden   invasion.
