Since when has it been' con-'  sidercd ne'eessary hy the Public Work*  Department to apply to, Mr. H; A.'  Brown for recommendations for positions cm local works round Itevelstoke?  Since when hus their' own engineer,  Mr. Gamble, been" accounted- incapable of exercising his own" judgment  in these appointments ? "Was it Mr." II.  A. Brown, who also recommended  that orders for the supplies necessary  on the work at the canyon , should  only go to -one or tjvci .stores of the  right stripe in -politics? Or .is , this  only it local instance of a policy recently adopted all over the Dominion by  all the departments iu the , interests  ot economy and political morality?  If Mr. H. A. Brown, would like'to clear  up these matters for the benefit *of an  expectant public the columns'of Thk  Herald tire open to hiin to do*so, as  long as he will stick to the point, and  avoid personalities, which are' merely  the last desperate resort of ,a "poor  case. -'   *   '  '  The plain facts are'just these.' .The  present Dominion administration  was  placed   in   power  under   pledges    so.  numerous and solemn.for the. introduction of a reform in the methods', of  making    appointments   in ' the "Civil  Service  of  the   country,   that many  even of their opponents expected,'the  inauguration of 11 rew era under their  auspices.     What'has  been  the 'outcome of  all their .promises?   'Sinipily  that out of this large    ntoimtain'-'of  pledges , the    local     wirepuller * has  emerged in all his glory.

It is a merry, merry game while it  lasts, hut the trouble is that it never  lasts long. The ship of Canadian  Liberalism may conveniently escape  the rocks which at "present mermce  her. She may be able to steer between  Quebec anil. Ontario on the school  question, between the Eastern farmer  clamoring for promised economy and  the Western settler and miner demanding.the fulfillment of pledges of  development, between protection  which when out of office the leaders  promised to abolish and free trade,  which now they clearly see that they  cannot substitute in its place; but the  vessel is doomed for all that. The  most skilful navigation cannot save  her. She* curries her own destruction along with her. Just as in '78.  so within a very few years from '90,  the rats in the hold will have scuttled  her. Any. one that chooses to listen  e"an hear the work of destruction beginning even now.  DONALD *     ..  An Interesting Budget of Items from the  Railway Town.  Pr:in Our Own Correspondent.

TROUT LAKE CITY.   ,  A Railway being Surveyed from Lardo  Creek to Trout Lake���������Mining Notes  i  from Lardeau River.  From Our Own Correspondent.  Since penning last week's notes, we  have been visited by a paity of  engineers who came up the Laido  Cieek and Ti out Lake to Trout1 Lake  City, and surmised by putties heie to  be looking out the best i on tej for a  railway from Kootenay Lake to Tiout  Lake and perhaps the city.

The smelter matter is peculiarly  well adapted for. the attention of  of the Calgary Board of Trade and  110 time should be lost. The prospects are good and success would  mean a lasting benefit to Calgary  and the surrounding district.  Things in Cre'o aro comparatively dull when' compared with  tbe discussion on the Crow's Nest  Road by the Toronto papers.  The Attorney Geucral of Manitoba has .doiincd an offensive  partisan to be "a partisan who is  offensive to the party iu power."

CANADIAN TRADE  The official returns of the trade  of Canada for the last liscal  year  were   made   public   a   couple   of  months'ago.    Fuller details are.  "however,   obtainable    from    the  .���������tatements"' since    compiled    for  Parliament     by    the     Customs'  Department.   The tables shewiug  'the'movement of our trade with  our various foreign customers are  perhaps    the   most    interesting.  They shew that Great Britain is  pre-eminently. Canada's best market at present.   Our sales to the  Mother Country during the  last  liscal year were 50 per cent larger  than  our 'sales   to   the   United  States.    As  recently as 1889 the  Americans   were   our   best  pur-  chasers.   Their hostile legislation,  coupled   with, the  efforts of the  Canadian Government to develop  British trade, has welded the cotn-  ' luercial interests of England and  Canada'  more    solidly   together.  Germany  'and  France  buy  comparatively, little from ns, and do  ���������n increasing trade with tneir own  goods iu this country.   Indeed, ib  is the German manufacturer who  is the bete noir of Canadian producers, as the evidence before the  Tariff Commission nas shewn. We  import  largely from   Japan   and  ��������� China, chielly teas and silks, but  as  yet  have not found anything  ' like   a  corresponding   trade    for  ���������''Canadian goods in those countries.  The countries that buy from us  tnore than thevsell here are Great  Britain,     Newfoundland,     South  "America and Australia..  William McKinley is today the  lirst citizen of the United States.  He will occupy that proud  position till the 17th instant when  he must give way to the winner of  the Corbett-Fit/.simmons intellectual contest.  The Liberal promise of economy  has been inaugurated in the  Interior Department by the super-  anuation of a vigorous official at  $1,000 a year and the transfer of  another at a big salary to make  room for a friend at an equally  big salary..  The number of " Canadian  politicians who seem to have  abandoned their legitimate business for the purpose of taking a  trip to Rome without any  apparent object, leads to '- the  belief that the eternal city has  appointed,, a live., immigration  agent iu Canada, with the school  question as the basis of his  "vigorous immigration policy."  The Toronto Globe says that Mr.  Sifton's object in disponing of Mr.  Burgess and ;Mr. Hayter "Ree"d was  due to.the desire of the Minister  to end "a regime that "was reeking  with scandals." If there were  scandals why did Mr. Sifton cover  them up by offering to retain the  services of these gentlemen, and  why has he retaiued the services  of one aud superannuated., the  other?   If there were no scandals,  o  properly so called, then the Globe  itself is tryiug to cover up a political job by an unworthy and  malicious slander.  THAT SMELTER,  (Trom tho Calgary Herald)  There never was a more favourable opportunity for a successful  effort for the establishment of a  smelter at Calgary than there is  today.    There is now no possible  -doubt-of_the^extraordina.ry____miuTi  eral wealth of the Kootenay, and  the recent decision of the United  States Government to double the  tariff on lead inmorted into that  country must necessarily-create  a. demand for home refineries.  High freights aud high reductiou  charges have been found necessary in order to prevent the rich,  silver lead ores of British Columbia from killing the low grade  camps iu the Western States. On  the basis of the duties now established by the United States Government the tax "on Slocan ores  would be somewhere about $20 per.  ton. The freight and- treatment  rate from" ��������� Sandon aud Kaslo  amounts to S'21 per ton, so  that altogether it would cost the  ���������miner S40 per ton to have his ores  ���������"���������educed. Now in the immediate  aeigiibourhood of Calgary we  have the best coking coal in the  ���������vrorld. a solid fact which has been  ���������proved beyond doubt, and we are  within comparatively easy reach  'nf the mining district. With the  (Crow's >*est road in operation,  Tvuich we hope soon to find an  Tci3omplished fact, the cost of  transport could not be at all  ���������oppressive. The Herald's special  ���������enrresnondent  in   the  Kootenay  ��������� *3 velievC"!- from what  he  has  seen  .T'_j heard  from responsible  parities that Calgary can get a smelter  JjE the citizens will take the matter  Xi i in a proper -spirit.   A 'smelter  *has got to be .built somewhere on  This  side  of the   boundary   and  (Calgary offers advantages which  tare   not within   the reach of any  ���������other point.   We have heard   so  ���������much of smelter proposals in the  past,   that  possibly  this   matter  wfll  ncrt^eenre  the attention   of  war City   Council and  of   those  citizens who are interested in the  success of tbe City,   but  present  indications undoubtedly point to  ���������the  fact that the  erection .of  a  -smelter at Calgary is<juifce within  ���������A bill has been introduced in the  New York Legislature to prohibit  newspapers from publishing, portraits of public men without permission. Tf the American portraits  are no more faithful counterfeits  .than those we get in Canada, the  object could be gained by for-  _bidding_the. printing of .the name  under the portrait. Jn this way,  one picture could be made to  serve for several people, and  nobody could tell whom it was  intended for without the guiding  words uuderneath.  OUR FRIENDS  '*'   . -  "DOWN HOME."  ft would be amusing, if the matter was not of immediate concern,  to read the views of some of the'  Eastern papers on the Crow's Nest  railway.    The Montreal   Herald,  which certainly should know bet-  tei, speaks of it as "the construction of n local railway somewhere  in British Columbia," and having  thus   accurately    described    the  location  of the  proposed road to  its own satisfaction, it proceeds to  argue as to the advisability of its  construction.    Tho Dundas  True  Banner, a paper which circulates  in the County of Wentworth,  advises   the Government  to let  the  project severely alone, and with a  knowledge derived possibly from  the pern-a! of the erudite article  in the Montreal Herald, estimates  the  probable    cost    at    twenty  millions   of dollars,   which would  certainly seem a   somewhat   stilt'  price to pay for "a local railway  somewhere      (or    anywhere) ' in  British  Columbia."     Rossland - i3  spoken of as an "experiment," in  the event of the failure of which  "tho millions spent on   construction   would   be   thrown    away."  May   we  respectfully and apologetically suggest to Brother Pirie  that the millions will be far more  likely to be thrown away by any  any delay in the building of  tho  road.   The Ottawa Journal is now  harassed by doubts arising from  recent developments  in    eastern  papers.       The Toronto ��������� Weekly  Sun,   a   paper  which    circulates  largely   among the'   farmers    of  Ontario, fails to see any necessity  for the   proposed,road,   and asks  "why Canada should  be further  impoverished    by the   necessary  expenditure,   summing    up.   the  arguments  (?)  in favour of  construction as follows:  So'far all that has been claimed  is that it is necessary to enable  our merchants and manufacturers  to secure the growing trade of the  mining cainns, that the -mining  camps may draw supplies of potatoes and . Hour from the district  about Lethbridge, that it wiil  bring to the mining camps a kind-  of coal suitable ifor making coke,  which is now brought all the way  from England, that it will open up  a district of great mineral wealth,  and that it will counteract or destroy the American influence ' in  that region now established."  It must of course be understood  that "our" merchants mean Ontario merchants���������the Sun does not  shine on any others��������� and that we  need the road at once so as'to be  able "to draw potatoes aud flour  from thedistrictabout Lethbridge,'  by the judicious infusion of which  "we may be enabled to counteract  or destroy American influence  now establiehed"' in llossland.  But the Sun has something more  to say. "Why," it asks, "should  we spend all this money to provide our eastern merchauts-with a  .railway to sell their goods to a  few   tuousand ~mirier5    who"  other   classes    bound    up    with  them."  What an awful picture this is.  The transfer of an' enterprising  population from ' the east to the  west with a consequent diminution  in tho course of the Sun, (which  fortunately only revolves once a  week down there) the establishment of new communities in the  far west and increasing sales and  legitimate earnings to the railway  company, merchants, manufacturers and "other classes bound  up with them"���������It *seems too  horrible, for contemplation.  ���������  These are but a few specimens  ot the journalistic advice which  Mr. Blair has to put up with.  Fortunately Mr. Blair has been  through the country aud can  estimate these nonsensical utterances at their true value. It has  been truly said that one half of  tho world does not know how the  other half lives, and it seems as if  in Canada one half is, unaware  even' of the whereabouts of the  other half. Ib would not be  unwise to bring up a carload or  two of Ontario newspaper men  and give them n whirl through  Alberta and the Kootenay mining  country.' On their return home,  they would be so full ol wonder at  what they had seen that they  would burst���������not into ravings like  those we have quoted, bub into  tears of despair at their former,  unspeakable ignorance of the best  part of the Dominion.  FOREIGN  BALFOUR GIVES  NO   PROMISES  REGARDING GREECE  CHURCH DIRECTORY.  TO  GREECE TO   WITHDRAW  FOOTPRINTS OF TIME.  "A happy wife" writes to the  Lady's Department of a Toronto  paper to prove that in her case at  all' events marriage is not a  failure. She says: "'Today I believe I am one of the happiest  little women on earth. Not one  hour oE our married life has been  marred by a moment's discord.  Sweet little home is ray kingdom.  A selfish, exacting husband to'me  is unknown. I have perfect freedom in every respect. The money  that comes in is mine.

There-  Progress of the Indians���������Religious  Matters���������North Star Mine-Perry  Bull. Elk and Wild Horsg  Districts  I promised you a letter from  time to time anel I am sure il I were  able to give vou only a lew ol the  everyday incidents cf HIV. at Steele���������  or were I able to describe the great  North Star mine und its workings, or  give you a history of Wild Horse  e'l'eek "andan account of its millions ol  ��������� placet-gold yielded up���������ib would interest  your rentiers, but in this short note I  am not able to do more than speak  generally of Fort Steele and ils present  and future prospects ns a great mining  camp. And jursb here let me say that  in Steele as elsewheie in Urilish  Columbia our "American* cousins _uro  strongly in evidence. The inn joiity ol  prospectors are Americans. If a mine  is in the maket lhe men who are your  keenest opponents for its ace.iusiliun  are Americans. The very enterprising  editor of tho Prospector is an American. The easiest way of getting,, in  and out is by the American route."  There is an American store with  American goods. In fact through  nearly everv feature of, this gieat  camp" is his 'mark.'and I anl bound to  sav if it hud nob heen for his energy  and business enterprise the Fort Steele  mining camp would be today a fairly  unknown quantity, instead of as it is.  the. most extensively written about  and talked of district of any perhaps  in the world.  I would like to write you an account  of the trip in from Golden. 1 can  imagine nothing more beautiful in  summer. At this season .of the year  it is of course just a little-rough. The  eating and sleeping accommodation  is. however, very superior. We passed  through two Indian reservations, and  there is a third at Fort Steele. These  people are all looked after by Roman  Catholic missionaries, priests . aud  sisters. Fortunately for these" aborigines thev have'been, and arc yet,  sufficiently'far removed from oiUci.-il-  isnt to have escaped its curst*. We  met several of the Indian men with  teams on1 their way, to Golden fpr  supplies ��������� well dressed men, intcll-  gont fellows, and with well fed anel  groomed hoises. Their houses are weU  built, farms well .fenced and irrigated  and there is a total absence of the vice  of the white man among them. Upon  tneiuirv I was able to ascertain that  o.verv "family upon the reserves were  Koman Catholic, at any rate notnin-  allv, and 1 wondered that such a field  for the exercise of those sublime  qualities wc* know our Protestant  missionaries to be possessed of should  have been left nn touched. I asked an  old timer on Wild llcr-,c why it was  that there were no Protestaiitmissionaries in South East Kootenay:- "Oh!"  . said he, "it don't sound so grand at  'missionary meetings to speak of missions to'" our country as it does  ���������missions to Japan-and to India.'but  I wonder what the Master will say  lo these zealous people who neglect  their own people and their own country and send their substance andtheir  gdspel "to other lands."' In Steele,  with 11 population of say .100 souls, and  several, surrounding settlements and  ranches, there is no regular Protestant  minister. A lav reader holds services  for the Church of England every  other Sundav, alternated by a Presto-  terian student. The.Roman Catholic  mission is seven miles from, here on  xhe   St.   Mary's.    They are-just now  ��������� erecting a new church edifice, their  old premises being entirely too small  for the growing population.    ��������� -  'Almost cverv clay parties are arriv-  ^������ntr - from ��������� the". South. _ either for, the  purpose of investing * or so arf tei"  ������be here the moment, that spring  opens out. Anything of a prospect  at all in a good locality will sell, and  it is cash down.

So soon as navigation opens a u.dly service by boat to  Jennings will lie put on. This gives  direct and speedy eoinmumcafion out,  ubt not by a Cnimdian route.

TARIFF TALK  THE   MINISTERS   REHEARSING  FOR THE NEW BILL  CABINET IS NOT UNANIMOUS  NEW BRANCH OF THE POSTAL  -DEPARTMENT  TO  GET  RID   OF RED   TAPE  is of course on Perry creek, two town  sites have been" located on the creek  and there is scarcely a doubt but "'that  it will see a great boom. ' A placer  mining company has also acquired  rights on the creek and will expend  S40.000 in a plant. The East Kootenr v  Mining and Development Company  ���������will be actively at work' in "a few flay.-  ort one ol" their properties and the result of their operations will be watched  for eagerly. Bull river, ic also rich,  principally in galena, aud the Mover,  Elk and Wild Horse all have their  friends. In fact, it would appear that  the whole country around is one vast  mass of undeveloped wealth.  The North Star mine is not a vein or  lode, it is a mtiss of mineral. It seems  as if the bowels of the earth had  ���������swollen and then burst, and that is the  great North Star mine. They have  :?,C00 tons now ready for shipment and  I am told that every ton will go from  sJSO to SS'JO. There can be no reasonable  doubt that development will produce  many mines as good, possibly better.  Yesterday I was shown a piece ot  'lava, like quart's, which'assayed $300  to the ton, and a piece of copper  which would run -10 per cent. This  latter, in fact both properties, are yet  undeveloped, What the future is no  one can tell, but I think everything  depends on the construction at once of  the Crow's Nest Pass rail way. 'Then,  if 10 per cent of the anticipations are  realized.this will be a great country,  and a great centre. I mean, of course,  the Fort Steele district, because no  one knows where the new town w ill  be. Fort Steele.itself-is just now very  inadequately supplied with hotel accommodation ior the spring rush.  What there are are very good, much  better than one has a light to expect,  but already there is beginning to be a  scarcity of rooms. There is a good  public school and. I am told, a competent teacher. The residents, new  comers and old timers aro affable anil  kind to the stranger, and street brawls  and unseemly exhibitions are' practically unknown. One constable preserves the peace anil he says ho is tired  of the job for there is nothing to do.  The most serious drawback is communication with Canada. At present  we have a fortnightly stage with  Golden. In April We* are to have a  weakly mail service.' Now,*_Mr. Editor,  just mark the difference*.

O. .Inspectors Required  to Mind Tlicir Own Business���������Mr.  B. M.   Armstrong to be   Controller  Ottawa, March 0.��������� The new branch  of the mist office department to be  known as the "railway mail service  branch," goes into existence on the 1st  of next month, li. M. Armstrong, of  Toronto, has charge of the new branch,  with the designation of controller. Mr.  Mulock's object" in creating this branch  is to make the service efficient and get  rid of red tapoism. The present post-  mater general finds thatin some postal  districts the inspectors.instead e>t looking after the'post. offices in districts  under their charge, and'. inspecting them, have, concerned themselves  chiefly with the railway'mail clerks.  From this time lorward, however, the  inspectors will have to attend strictly  to their own duties,, while the railway  mail clerks will be looked after by  Controller Armstrong, . The chief  railwav mail clerks "will in future be  styled" superintendents, while 'the  clerks in the cities of Halifax,St. John,  Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa. Toronto,1  Loudon, 'Winnipeg and -Vancouver,  whose dutv it is to check the  returns, will also bo included as a part  of the .railwav "mail service branch.  The'changes mentioned involve a complete separation between the duties ot  post olllce inspectors and those of controller of the -railway mail service  branch, but in order to prevent any  failure that might - meanwhile interfere with the efficient working of the  mail service, the post office .inspectors  will be required to afford such aid and  assistance as the controller or superintendent* may ask. " From the first  proximo the superintendents, railway  mail clerks engaged in checking railway limit, clerks who return tune bills,  transfer bills, etc., together with, all  postal car operations and and matters  pertaining to the conveyance of mails  by railway generally, and' direction  and management of all persons concerned, shall* be transferred to. the  railway mail service branch.'

March-11.���������In the Legis-  lalure.last night,Mr. Whitney, leader  ot the Opposition, called the attention  of the an article in the Globe  about the arrangement entered into  by the Government iind an English  syndicate, whereby the latter would  acquire mining lands comprising (11.000  acres in the Rainy River district. Tlie  syndicate were to have exclusive light  of exploration, etc.,' for three years:  Whitney denounced the* arrangement  in ��������� vigorous ..terms and .said that it  would work 'great injury to the. province. *ln-reply. Mr. Hardy said that  there was a strong demand to bring  English capital into the province and  the action-of the Government was in  response to the demands made upon it  for an active mining policy. ������   *"  "WANT To'ltEACli AN" AGREEMENT.

Hooper, a miner, who has been  working for the Columbia & Quart/.  Creek Mining Co. on their claim at  that place. . The dece*:isetl was found  in his shack at the mine early on Tuesday morning with his throat, cut from  ear to oar, with every indication of  suicide. No cause is assigned 1'or the  rash deed. Lawyer Spragge-and Constable; Stirret also went, with Coroner  Manuel in case their services might be  required.  The  Incorporation Fac*.  To the EniTon oi-' The Herald :  Sin,.���������What would you think if you  should rend in the columns of your  valuable payer something like the following : Dei evei people talk unless  tliui'i; is something wrong with I heir  liver? 1 think it would have been  much more to the credit of Mr. Ne-ed-  lmm if he had gnue In thu mci'Mt'.g for  business purposes and listene-el to  arguments, or even produced some  argumcul.H on the stih'uut ur.clcr discussion instead of playing thu part, (if  a , and then   I   would  like   to  call  attention to the majority vote of each  of thu two iiiec-tings as i-eimpiired with  lhe minority veili.-.    In Ihe; case eif the  minority   vote   of  thu   llrst  meeting  every man arose lo his feet, on  the  instant, just   as if   he   knew   wind   he  thought nnil why he thought it,  and  without  slopping  to    see    how    his  neighbor woulel vote.    While in the  case of the* majority vote; some 3 to 5  arose and then  after the;  hungers  on  looked arouiiel and saw who wasslanel-  ing, they slowly, one al a time, as persuaded, arose through  the. course   of  nearly a minute.   And then what diil  the majority of them represent?  Then  at the! second  meeting,  which was a  meeting of a portion of the town, uninvited guests took a greater ��������� portion  of the limited, time  with complaints,,  protests iind cries of distress and suspicion that suemeel to emilate  from  a  sour stomach or disordered liver, but  no argument as to lhe gotitl or bad  to  to result from  incorporation.    Your  humble   servant   would  suggest that  such   .t   course   is neither   wise    nor  honorable, and also that a considerable  number, in fact the majority of those  invited, did not vote at all from sheer  disgust with the vapor'mgs  of those  who should  have lvtd  it   little  more  honor and common decency, etc.   By  the way it has been suggested that S.  N. use Carter's little* liver pills in  con-  neetion'with comfort soup.   Now, Mr.'  'Editor, if those people on insanity flat  want anything more* like   the  above  we can furnish it for  thoni   together  .with something more it) the  point.    1  say   what   would   you   think   if   you  should read something like the above?  But we would not be guilty of writing  such stuff; far he it fioin us to offend  one   or  any   of "our  fellow   citizens."  Hoping that  you   will   forgive  what  may 'at first   signt  seem   unkind,-I  would respectfully invite you  to consider that all those specially interested  in the witter, light anil power busine.s������.  and wishing anil expressing their wish  to corral or monopolise every possible  water, light, or power privilege, (tintl  they are decidedly  business men) are  thoroughly in favor of incorporation,'  only the time i.s not ripe, nor will it be"  ripe   until   they   have  corralled    the  above mentioned rights, lifter which it  will, doubtless  be ripe..    One   of   the  leading business men  in favor of incorporation said tn mo today: "If they  put off incorporation  until   a  private  corporation    obtains    everything    in  sight that is   worth   getting,   then   I  will lit; aerainst incorporation as one of-  the e-hiefest objects of incorporation  will have been lost."
