What We Want in 1899.
What wo do not want is a
"boom1 where the few reap a rich
harvest, and the many are beggared. We want the careful,
conservative investor, the men
that look carefully at what they
tony, and get value received for
what they invest.
We want capital for our mines
xuotl property; but we want the
kind of capital that opens up
only what is worth working, and
tifoat operates mines for the ore
they produce, and the ventures
tili.ey bring. This is safe legitimate and permanent; it will
benefit tho whole of the Fort
Steele district, and increase in
fiime.	
Windermere District.
Development work ou the Del-
pliine mine, owned by Messrs,
Kimpton, Stark and Harrison,
■situated ou Toby creek, is progressing rapidly, and we learn
tShat it is the intention of the ow-
ua's to work the property all
wsh ter. A largo quantity of rich
i»t'*o has been sacked, a portion
of which has been packed to the
river for shipment, but on account of the low stage of tlie
water the steamboats were unable to transport the ore to the
railway. Il is possible that it
may be talien to the railway on
sleds, as soon as there is snow
enough to make good sleighing.
Tlie pay chute on the claim has
uojy opened out to a width of
tihree feet ef solid ore, aud of
such high value that it Will pay,
standing the expense of packing
and teaming to the railway,
leaving a large net surplus of
i§7'i to #H0 profit per ton.

St. Eugene Mine,
■The ore biu at the mine has
teen completed, and contains 100
tons of clean ore. The building
oi a 200 ton bin at the concentrate site has commenced, and 'we
tern from the manager that the
ffismcentrator and flume will be
eiwistructed early in the coming
spring.
A preliminary survey is being
made for a tramway from the
inline to the concentrator.
There is no doubt but that
large shipments of ore will be
made from Moyie city, provided
■jlie railway puts in the neees

Iho Madrid Press is Furious,
Madrid.—The newspapers assert that the government of
Spain is sending instructions lo
its commissioners in Paris not to
yield on llie question of Spanish
sovereignity over the Philippines, which is asserted to be entirely outside of the protocol,
wherefor the commissioners arc
authorized not discuss it.
It is further asserted that the
Spanish government will declare
that it has not been authorized
by the cortes to negotiate the
cession of the Philippines.
The Liberal advises the Spanish peace commissioners to leave
Paris after lodging a protest
against the demands of the
Americans.
The Spanish newspapers are
angry til the Marquis of Salisbury, whose speech at the Guild
hall banquet on Wednesday night
they declare to have been merely
"a glorification of brute strength
an'd a denial of the rights of the
weaker,"

Latest Telegraphic News,
San Francisco, Nov. .12—Clayton Inckersgill, the new consul
general of Groat Britain to this
city, has arrived and will soon
take charge of his office,
Paris,—Matin says at a council of admirals held yesterday It
was decided to lit out all Fronch
war vessels available, and 80 reserve ships have been ordered
into commission,
Nassau.—The tug Potomac
which has been   visiting   the
The Omens Are Warlike.
The Daily News then proceeds
to ask whether the Philippines
are the storm center which the
premier foresees and says: "The
omens are certainly not favorable. The peace conference is
in ti deadlock. Emperor William
is hastening back, not to Berlin
but to Spain. If Lord Salisbury
meant anything by his remarks
regarding America they point to
a somewhat serious situation. If
he meant nothing, he was very
ill advised to indulge at so sensitive a time and in such a public manner in a fit of diplomatic
■blues."
The Times, in a rather colorless editorial calls Lord Salisbury's speech "unwoighty." It
says: ''His reference to decaying states as likely to invite war
will not be misunderstood by the
country and the recent proofs of
British strength, may induce
Germany to seek an understanding, if not an alliance with England.
A Report,
Paris,—The Echo publishes a
dispatch from Toulon, which
says that the entire French Mediterranean Squadron is ready for
sea. It adds that Admiral Four-
nier, its commander, got a cipher dispatch yesterday evening,
whereupon he signalled to tho
Forbin. a third-class cruiser to
banlc her (ires, and fastest torpedo boat conveyed orders to the
admiral commanding the fleet
that tlio French cruisers and
boats assemble immediately at
Toulon, where all vessels are
prepared for action and where
the .arsenals and shipyards have
been worked all night. It later
developed that Admiral Four-
nier had been summoned to
Paris,
A Stir Throughout Europe,
London, Nov, 11,—Lord Salisbury's speech at the mayor's
banquet at the Guild hall, especially his reference to America,
is making a stir throughout
Europe. The evening papers
yesterday (Thursday) having a
long time for reflection had a
much less satisfied tone than the
utterances of the morning papers
in the French capital, while the
whole continent reflects the feeling that the speech conveys a
grave menace for the future.
La Liberte of Paris says: "It
is a question of Anglo-American
agreement respecting the Philippines directed against Germany".
The London morning papers
revert to the subject and again
take occasion to wish well to A-
merica's colonial mission,
The Times says editorially:
"Lord Salisbury clearly did not
refer lo the late war at all, Ho
paid tlie United States tlio com
plitneiit of holding thut their
entry into the World's politics
was an event of great Importance,
His further remarks obviously
meant that Amoricaand England
would stand together in a friendship based upon a community of
aims, sentiments and interests."
Get Your Name on the List.
It is tlie duty of every qualified elector to take an interest in
the affairs of the Province and
tlie Dominion at large, and that
he may make this interest fell,
was the right of franchise given
him. There is no doubt but
that there will be a general provincial election in February,
Therefore every elector of this
riding should see that his name
is on the voters' list. If it is
not, then he should take steps at
once to have his name entered as
a duly qualified voter. Don't
wait until it is too late, now is
the proper time, see that it is
done at once.

Comment From Vienna.
The Vienna correspondent of
the Times commenting upon the
irritation of the German press
over the attitude of tho United
States towards the Philippine
question says:
It has but little importance and
is likely to excite the scorn and
defiance of the Americans and
tend to confirm them in their determination to keep the Philippines.
The Fremdenblalt, in a temperate article that gives tho German papers an example of impartiality, recognizes that il is
purely a question for the Americans to decide for themselves.
The Prince of Wales' Joke.
I heard a good story about the
Prince of Wales and it is well
vouched for. In the eighties,
when the Radicals were more
than ever clamorous and active,
a young lord said to him:
"Sir, have you ever thought
of the possibilitv of 'this becoming a republic,, and you losing
your title and income?"
"Yes, I have," said the prince.
"And have you thought of
what you would doV tlie young
lord persisted.
"Why, yes," said the prince;
"there would always be a chance
to lecture in America,"—/'row'-

will have.
The election returns establish
with certainty that tho United
States Senate will have a Republican majority after March 4th
noxt.
The analysis of llie party
changes show lhat the Republicans gain seven seats from the
Democrats: California, Delaware, Indianna, New Jersey, New
York, North Dakota and Wisconsin, and one from the Populists
in Nebraska. On division the

Men of the Say.
The Duke of Connaughl lias
recently relinquishel the Alder-
shot oommaud. This is a 'iu.-t
important post, for Aldershot is
the great training ground for
the British army, and the commander of uie camp is a specie
of drill master for the portion of
the army which is next for the
service, The Duke has proved
a great success in that post, md
has silenced those who were disposed to object to his appointment on account of his birth.
An instance of the thorough
way in which the Duke goes
about his work was afforded by
the well known incident of his
trying on the. French soldier's
knapsack at the recent manoeuvres. A personal detail illustrating his devotion lo his*
profession is tlie fuel that
his aides-de-camp are instructed
by him to wear the uiguillet'e'
(the gold cord aud tassel indicative of suoh an appointment) on
the loft shoulder, ns for n general of llie ordinary social position, instead of mi the right
louldor, as for n prince of lhe
royal homo. Geuerul lirsl and
irince afterwards appears to bo
his motto.
SirRedverBuiler, V. IE, ihe
distinguished soldier who sue-
ceeded the duke iu the Aldershot
command, is now in his sixtieth
year, He entered the 60th Rilies-
in 1858, and served in China, in
the Red River Expedition, the
Ashauti War, the Kaffir and the
Zulu War of 1878-1), for au episode
in which he received his V. C.
Becoming Deputy Adjutant-General in 1885, Sir Red vers afterwards strayed for a brief time
into politics as Under Secretary
for Ireland in 1887, and since
1890 he has been Adjutant General.      	
Warning to German Press,
London,—The Berlin correspondent of the Standard says
the semi-official papers have received a hint to stop their attacks upon America. I have
good reason to believe however
that Germany will doff her reserve as soon as otlier powers
seek a.share in tlie spoils of the
Philippines,
Abuse Has a Bad Effect.
London,—Tho Merlin correspondent of the Times after giving extracts from another long
and violent article In the Klon-
iclio /.oilting, declares that the
fate of ihe Philippines cannot bo
u matter of indifference to Germany and expresses lhe opinion
that such utterance will only
stiffen the attitude of the United
States.

The officials of the Canadian
Pacific raihvay will soon havo
one of the biggest fights of their
oxistaiico on their hands, and it
is understood that al this early
d-.no steps are being taken to get
things in shape for tin; battle
which is soon to begin wilh the
American ruilwuy interests,
headed by the Great Northern
railway, over nn entrance inlo
■Southern Hrilish Columbia, to
compote with tho Canadian Pacific. The American roads pro-
lE-.-is to know thai the C. P. R.
authorities fear the outcome of
Bhft tight on account of the
vast amount of capital wliich is
aa4d to bo boliinil the move on
Clio part of tho Greal Northern.
At Ottawa it will bo the Corbin
llglit of last session over again,
only on a much larger scale.
The (!. P. R. came out successful last session after a hard
fought battle anil since lhat; time
the Corbin interests have passed
into the hands of the .Great
Northern, and that they are prepared to carry on the business
where Mr. Martin left off is now
well known in railway circles,
Ai, the present time ropresenta
fives of the Great Northern aro
vsiiid to be at work in Canada
paving the way for the Introduction of a measure at the next
.-session of tho Canadian house
seeking legislative approval for
the construction of a line into
.■southern British Columbia from
tlsw Unilod States.
The coming struggle will be
all the more interesting on account of the tact that tho American L'OadS which have been fighting against the C, IE R, in tho
IKWHOiiger and freight rato
lights, are allied with the Great
Northern in tliis inatter, and il
is .said would bo very glad to get
in a blow at their most feared
rival.
.At llie recenl dinner given iu
his honor at Winnipeg, while he
was on his annua] tour of inspection. Sir William Van Home,
president of the C. P. R., foreshadowed the coining struggle
when he slated the Great North-
em people would be probably
found at Ottawa at, the next session of parliament seeking legislation to get a line into British
Columbia lo cut into the trade of
that region. Sir William declared that it would be a shame
if Canadians did not get all the
trade resulting from the Canadian Pacific road, as it had been
built largely with public subsidies.
A Spokane paper in that connection announces that "The
Great Northern is making ready
for a great struggle with the.
Canadian Pacilic railway. The
traffic of British Columbia is to
be the prize of battle. Back o!
the C. P. K. will be its powerful
ugenls in Uie Qorainion government; back of lhe Great Northern will be all the great American railways, which all hope to
share in the gains once the grip
of the Canadian octopus is
broken,—Montreal Star.
Mines.
Mines are lhe subterranean
treasures of nature, in whicli the
Omniscient Boing has deposited
a portion of his bounties to bo
developed and used by Intelligent
men. Mining, improved to its
utmost extent, is an art, in which
all the light of science, all the
capacity of mind and diligence
of man find their application. In
Ihe Dominion the mining operations aro of too recent an origin
to present but few of the masterpieces in the art, It requires
ages, tlie lapse of centuries, to
develop such subterranean structures as can be found in the old
world, and also in Mexico and
the United States, An extensive subterranean mine is a
grand and curious struct ure,
and possesses many beauties
which are understood only by
the initiated. These cannot be
made the subject of panoramic
views, like the terrestrial beauties of nature, and are, therefore,
not accessible to the multitude
ns a means of enjoyment. In
subterranean mini's there is a
poetry, u high religious poetry;
the uiiner in his lonely chamber I
is constantly reminded of the
bounties at his disposal, und the
assistance lliul lie needs from a
higher power than what man
can bestow. We regret exceedingly thai it is not permitted us
to luxuriate in the description
of mining to its fullest extent:
our aim is to be useful, and we
shall give to the readers of Tills
Prospectou from time to time
many of tho leadiug features
pointed out. by geology, which
will help the prospector and
miner to find the place where
mineral deposits may be located.
Tliere is vast quantities of useful and valuable minerals in the
Port Steele district, which are
profusedly distributed above the
water levels of the valleys, and
there is very little prospect of
any extensive operations below
that level for a number of years,
at leasl as far as the general
production is concerned, for the
mineral productions of the district are so vast as to be practically unlimited, so that tliere
will he no necessity of extensive
machinery used in deep mining.
We trust that in the near future
when we have reduction works,
and a home market for our ores,
we shall see the Fort Steele
mining district take a prominent
place in the mining industries of
tho world.
Minerals.
Minerals, particularly the metallic ores, aro chiefly distributed
over and below the surface of
the earth in layers and masses,
in lodes or veins, running parallel with or traversing the general stratification of the rocks, iu
nesl or pockets, iu nodules,
wliich are concretions or accumulations of minerals of small extent; and iu small veins, which
are either branches of heavy
veins, or traversing larger veins
ramifying tlie rocks in all directions. 'I'he transition rock is lhe
domain of the metalliferous deposits; here we find more variety and abundance than in any
other geological formation,    In
these rocks the besl qualities of
ores are nlso found. The secondary rocks, or those whicli contain bituminous coal, do not furnish so greal a variety of miner
als as lhe transition rocks; and
many kinds are not found ul all
iu them, In the latter, (the secondary roclc,) Ihere i.s an absence
of gold, silver, copper, antimony
and other substances. It furnishes chielly stonecoal, iron,
limestone', and oflen a little lead
or zinc: hut these latter only ii;
a very limited quantity. Mineral substances, particularly those
which are used fer the production of metals, the workable or
useful ores,—are but few in number, They are generally oxides,
that is combinations ol' metals
with oxygen: sulphurets, or
metals combined wilh sulphur:
carbonates, or metallic oxides
combined with carbonic acid.
Combinations of metals with
oilier substances than these are
rare.
Minerals of the above description frequently form large bodies
of pure ore by themselves, buried
beneath the surface of the rock.
In most cases, however, these
ores are blended with foreign
inatter, as lumps or grains of
quartz, lime and other substances
which are mechanically mixed,
or in chemical combination with
it. In some instances the main
body of the layer or vein is rocky
mailer, and the ore imbedded in
thai substance. The mineral
deposits are often found in such
heavy masses as to admit of
their extraction without any acl
mixture of rock; in other cases
rock and mineral must bo raised
together, as Ihey cannot lie separated, in some instances the
veins are loo small for the entrance of the miner, and are consequently of no practical value.
The following is a list, of Hi*
metallic ores recognized iu the
Pol'l Sleele district.
Native gold, native silver,
native copper, native arsenic,
galena, corusslte, altaito, aug-
ile, argentile, pyrurgyrito, pron-
stite, chalcopyrite, chalcooito,
bornite, tethrahedrite, hematite,

freedom in transportation.
Ilritish Columbia does not propose to go through the same
light with this company, as Manitoba and the North West Territories have, which latter are
slill trying to gain an outlet lo
the south.
What has the C. IE R. done for
the Noi'th West Territories since
this railway litis been constructed.
Mow many thousands of Can -
adians who wero formerly residents of Manitoba aud the Northwest Territories, have had to
leave after being almost ruined
by the exorbilnut freight rales
charged, and yet lhis writer has
been so obtuse that he has not
been able lo learii the lesson of
the pusi, and very recent history of Iiie North West.
The mining industry of this
Province requires every
for the transportation of ore
to smellers, and cheap freight
rales, to enable largo numbers
of mining properties to be successfully worked: and withoul
these facilities mining will not
progress and llourish, but linger
on until these conditions have
been obtained.
Now as to the market for the;
product of the North West, in!
East Kootenay, the grain tields!
of Alberta are much nearer than !
those of Washington. And ifj
the C. P. II. with its large sub-
resources
of South East Kootenay.
There is much more patriotic
pride in the people of South
East Kootenay, than in the com-
position of the I". P. ll.. who
will haul freight over the Suult
Ste. Marie to New York, at less
than half whal the same freight*
would cost over its own line to]
lhe sn me point.
There is no competition in patri-1
otic howling, but there is in com-1
petitive    railway   service.     Iti
would be a grand effort on the
part of the Government, to take
and dislodge this large traffic
from the (irand •Trunk railway,
and givo it to the C. P. R.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
Jim  Hill's   Railway   Scheme.
To tho Editor of Tho Tribune.
Sir—It bus been announced in
the public press lately tlmt the
Grout Northern ruilwuy has got
control of the Corbin ruilwuy into Nelson und proposes extending; into the Boundary Creek
region, and it is assumed thut
the great Jim Hill will huve
little difficulty in getting from
the parliament of Canada the
necessary charter which Corbin
wus unable to procure owing lo
Ihe powerful influence of the C.
P. R.
Now with the ordinary dis-
pules of the authorities of the
'C. P. B. and the masterful Hill
tho public bus little interesl.
save only thut which attaches lo
a contest of giants, but in lhis
case there is much ul stake and
il is well for us Muuitobuiis to
consider whether we are not
deeply interested in tho contentions and the objects of the C P,
ll. iu this mutter.
Now it is not the object of this
letter to discuss the business
policy of tho C. P. 14. lu ils relations to tho people of this
province. That the freight rales
to Port William havo been too
high, and notwithstanding the
reduction this year, are slill too
high, is unquestioned, and that
we aro suffering severely from
uot having a proper ruilwuy
competition Is plain lo everyone.
But wilh all this the C. P. 14. is
practically our only medium of
communication with the markets
of this country and the world,
and every new avenue of business il opens up is for lhe undoubted benefit of tlm producers
of the country. This i.s especially true of lhe mining regions
of llrilish Columbia, which, owing to their peculiar geographical position, will be entirely lost
to us unless thore Is some over
mastering influences brought to
our aid, This is what the C. P.
14. realizes and when their interests run so plainly parallel with
ours it is the worst kind of bad
policy to thwart their efforts to
bring grist to the mill as well as
to theirs.
As i.s well known, the mining
dislrict of British Columbia is
closely adjacent to the gardens
uud grain fields of Washington,
a district which is among the
most fertile und fruitful on
earth. They grow nearly everything there in the way of food in
the most lavish abundance, and
sell il at u price that would appear ruinous to our ideas of the
rallies of agricultural products,
I have seen wheat selling at
25b per bushel und Hour at !)5c
por sack*. Potatoes at 22c per
100 lbs., chickens at §1.20 per
dozen. Hums at li 1-2 cts per lb,
and nearly everything else in the
same relative prices. The only
thing that lho farmers in this
country have an advantage is in
beef and the cattle products.
Mr, Mara, the former owner
of the steamers on the Columbia
and Kootenay rivers, told me
that he found it cheaper to feed
thn people on tho boats with
Washington chickens than with
Alberta hoof.
Tho Columbia river makes it
possible to keep up water communication with nearly ovory
Important point in the Kootenay
and to deliver lho farming produce of Washington at the miniiii um of expense. The tariff, of
course comes lo our aid and will
be a considerable factor iu our
favor, but the cheapness of the
waler freights, the nearness of
the markets, the difficulty of dislodging trade from a position
which It has once occuplod, will
make il extremely difficult for us
to get poisosslon of the markets
of the Kootenuy for our agricultural products and to hold thorn
afler we huve possession. Hut
if the Croat Northern railway
builds in there und has a free
land to build through  llrilish
Columbiii wherever it wishes, it
will be a case of "good bye
trade" for a good deal of the
traffic in agricultural produce
that would otherwise come to
ns.
The opening up of lho mining
region of Colorado, Montana and
Utah did more than anything
else to make possible the marked prosperity und progress of
the agricultural trans Mississippi
slates, which have been celebrul-
ug their wonderful ucnieve-
inents ut Omaha during the past
season. It is believed that the
Southern part of British Columbia i.s destined to become, during the next, decade, the greatest
minerul region on earth. And
this is why lhe two great captains of transportation. Hill and
Vun Home, are straining every
nerve to gain an advantage over
the olher in this region. Hill
has the natural geographical position in his favor. Van Home
relies on the fact that the region
is in Canada and the trade of it
belongs to Canadians, and this
should settle the inatter in his
favor,
When the government adopted
tho policy of an all-Canadian
road into the Klondike, the public, independent of party, approved of the scheme, and only
when the improvidence of the
bargain and the unsiiitubility of
the route selected became known
did the public object. The policy of "Canada for Canadians'.' is
the only wise one. In the editorial columns of your paper you
huve been urging the fanners lo
go iu for mixed farming ou the
plea thul the mining regions ure
being opened up rapidly, and
will afford a profitable market
for all kinds of fai'in produce,
Mixed farming in Manitoba
will only bu profitable if we can
maintain our home markets- -if
our butter, cheese, vegetables,
poultry, eggs, ham, bacon, etc,
have lo traverse four or live
thousand miles lo seek a market
and Ihere meet the competition

certainly not as great an evil as

The news that the Spanish

had referred to the government
a formal demand of the American
commissioners for tlie absolute

group has caused lhe greatest
surprise in Madrid. Thestrong
est. fooling prevails lhat the government should protest energetically against what is regarded
as a violation of the spirit of the
protocol.
An election trial which exposes the people who distributes
and accepts bribes is useless unless it also exposes the source
from which the money comes for
corrupt purposes.
The true intent and purpose
of Britain's activity will be made
known in good time, and until
lhat time comes everybody not
in the secret will have to keep
right on guessing.

The conditions of Port Steele
have not changed since the subject was thrashed out by the
Board of Trade, but on the contrary, events have since transpired that 'rather go lo prove the
wisdom of that decision.
Now let us see for the good of
the public what we would have
to face if Port Steele was incorporated and the income we might
expect to run the town.
The taxes last year collected
in Port Steele not including
licenses I am informed amounted
to nearly $660.00. These hotel
licenses suppose they amounted
to $1200, then traders licenses
and shows, say would yield $300
more. These would amount in
all to $2160, say $2200.
Now what is the probable cost
of running the town if incorporated?   There would be say:
Town Solicitor's salary  $ -100.00
Town Clerk  400.00
Assessor and Collector  400.00
Constable  / (100.00
Scavenger  1100.00
Yearly grant to Fire Brigade 200.00

We publish today a letter from
Mr. .). H. Haslam on this subject.    Tlie  trouble  aboul   Mr.
Haslatn's letter is tnul be views
the case entirely from the stand*
point of tlie producers of Manitoba and the North West  Territories.     He  seems   fo  entirely
overlook   the   interests  of  the
peoplo of llrilish Columbia who
are in  reality  those  most concerned iu ihe question,    if Mr.
Ilnslam's slalemenl  and   ligures
are eorreel, why should lhe population of the   Pacilic province
be irrevocably bound lo purchase
Iheir supplies from eastern and
northwestern   Canada,   paying
ienormous tribute to ihe (E P. U.
' in iin* shape of heavy froighl
j rales when, as lie says, Ihey can
| secure   Ihese supplies  right al
thoir doors for such  reasonable
I prices';'    If Iiie Province of Bril-
| ish Columbia is deprived of rail-
: way competition by parliament:
ary sanction, lhe people of that
province must pay well through
llie nose lor ii to the C. P. R.  Il
seems lo us llml the C. P. R. has
i lhe solution of the problem very
! largely in its own bauds.    Let it
so adjust its rales as lo insure
for itself the carrying trade of
j lhe country. Subsidized so enor-
j niously as il has been by the nation, both in land and treasure,
it ought to be in a position to
give to tlie people of British
Columbia the boon of very low
rates.   Hut not contented with
getting its B. C.  railways built
practically at tho public, expense
and presented to it, it; now wants
to  evoke  parliamentary  interference to protect it, and to preserve to it a monopoly of the
traffic, of British Columbia without giving any satisfactory quid
pro quo in the shape of reduced
rates.   If such a high customs
tariff as an average of 85 per
cent cannot preserve to the people of Canada and to the C. P. R.
the business of British Columbia
we are free to say that it seems
little short of an outrage lo impose upon the population of the
Pacilic province any further dis
ability in the way of saddling it
with railway monopoly and compelling it to pay a higher tribute
than 85 cents ou every dollar's
worth purchased, in order thai
the greed of the C. P. R. may be
satisfied, for nobody else seems
to be agitating to prevent railway competition.
We are aware that our position
may meet with the disapproval
of a small section of narrow-
minded, selfish people who
would be willing to see any class
subjected to worst treatment
than the children of Israel received at the hands of the
Egyptians, if the policy resulted
in a little additional surplus to
thein. Happily this section is
very limited, for the intelligent
and magnanimous portion of the
population desires to see British
Columbia prosper, and she can
never, attain real prosperity
without railway competition.

might bo to the people- of Manitoba in the way of trade, as Mr.
Haslam points out, we do not
propose to bo so unworthy and
contemptible as to assist in forcing upon British Columbia a condition of affairs which we ourselves found to be so odious, and
which, as a inatter of fact, so
nearly led to rebellion about a
decade ago.
Moreover, if British Columbia
is debarred from railway competition and the trade is by this
method forced into uniiaturai
channels, (assuming that the
railway rates are maintained at
so high a figure as lo keep eastern Canada out of the market)
what becomes of the revenue of
tho country? It is well to bear
in mind that on every dollar's
worth of goods brouglii into tho
Kootenay country from the
south, the public exchequer is
benefitted to the extent of 85
cents. Must we sacrifice tho
revenue as well as the peoplo of
