THE FINANCE QUESTION  In considering the present, political  situation in this province it becomes  evident that something more drastic  than a mere change of the personnel  of the administration is required. The  system requires a thorough alteration  particularly in the financial methods  at present in vogue. A glance, at .the  tables furnished in the Public Accounts  report shews Unit scarcely ever in the  history of the province has the expenditure been kept within the  revenue. The only difference under  the Turner government is that the  gulf widened till in '93-'94 it stood at  $S21,000 of revenue to 81.514,403 of expenditure and in '94-'95 at $803,025 of  revenue to $1,00(3,92! of expenditure.  That is to say in between July  1st, 1894, and July 1st, 1S95, tthis  province spent more than twice  as much as it had tn spend.  In 1S95-90 the deficit was not so markedly short of the revenue but it still  amounted to $G 10,000. This startling  condition of affairs has been created  partly no doubt by the very large*  expenditure entailed in the endeavor  to assist the development of the  country, which could hardly be avoided, bub is also largely due to the  centralizing system of finance adopted  tit Victoria. The position with which  any .ministry working at Victoria under this system finds itself  confronted is that the contract assumed is too large to he carried out with  the moans at their disposal. The  trouble with every ministry that *has  hitherto undertaken the business is  that they have been afraid to face the  situation and lay it properly before  the people. Every district is culling  for expenditure, new roads and bridges  am being .constantly required, new  schools are being constantly opened,  as the country develops the expense  under the heads of police and administration of justice and government  continually increases, but the revenuje_  does not ��������� keep_ pace -with -the -raquir-."  ments*of tho 'country and no minister  h.ts .been-bold enough to point out the  only remedy, which is to abandon the  present centralization of the collection  and disbursements of all the. taxes  into the hands -of .the provincial government, for. the method adopted in  other provinces of the Dominion by  which the assessment, collection anil  disbursement of a large proportion of  of the taxation is left in the hands of  the people themselves.  Take the expenditure for schools for  instance; an item which has more than  doubled itself within the last ten years.  In British Columbia the government,  at the demand of any ten settlers  within a district, who,want a school,  jminediately procee'dto build a school-  house, hire and pay a teaclTer and"  stand good for all expenses in connection with the institution. The chances  are that the taxes paid by the people  using the school would scarcely pay  the teacher three month's salary.  Now in most of the other provinces  the people that want the school do  their own assessing, collecting and expending in connection with it, assisted  to a certain extent by a provincial  grant. They select their own teacher,  and the higher his grade, the larger  the government grant anil they put  up their own building and the more  complete and efficient the schoolhonse  and ils equipment, the larger again  the grant. The trustees are people  with-very real powers and the whole  community is directly interested in  seeing that the money expended by  them which comes directly out of  their pockets," is wisely anil judiciously  spent. If any place is ambitious to  make itself an educational centre aud  wishes to build a school and secure the  best possible teaching skill with that  object, it lies in their own power to do  so. The contrast is very remarkable  when results are compared. There  are a great many more, schools in the  territories than in this province although the population , is smaller; taken place for place in proportion to size  the territorial schools are larger,  better equipped and far better attended; the interest taken in them by the  people is much greater and the total  expenditure bv the government is less  than half.  This is only one department. But  our remarks will shew the lines along  which a reform of the finances of this  province to be effectual will have to  proceed. Within reasonable limits  there i.s no objection to the province  incurring indebtedness by way of loans  in order to further the progress of the  country by undertakings chemes for  the general benefit, but some method  has got to be devised of making its  ordinary expenditure even with its  annual revenue. And the only way  which is feasible is to call the people  to assume themselves as municipalities part of the burdens which the  province as a whole is at present failing in the attempt to carry. :'  OUTBREAK IN INDIA  BRITISH  FORCE ATTACKED ON  THE NORTHERN FRONTIER  Several Officers and Men Killed and  Wounded by a Large Force of Hostiles  ���������A Retaliatory Expedition Being  Fitted Out���������Cage Fell 360 Feet and  Ten Meu Killed.

Henry Boss, the genial clerk of the  Crown Point hotel, left on the Kootenay yesterday for the Lardeau where  he has some valuable claims. After  doing his.assessment work he will put  in the rest of the summer prospecting.  ���������Trail Miner.  A party of miners has started out  prospecting from the 13lh crossing  along the mountains running east of.  the Columbia. The look of the formation is^very attractive, and the prospects of success are very good in the  opinion of old miners. ,  At a meeting of the directors of the  Ibex of Slocan held on Wednesday at  Kaslo'the last payment on the bond,  $22,000, was made and the company  now own the mine. The bond was not  due for eight months. The company  are well satisfied with the prospects  and are increasing the force of men at  work on the mine, y The company also  own theBlack Diamond, Little Donald and Macleod claims; at Ainsworth.  on which 50 men are employed and  which are shipping five carloads of ore  a week and will soon have a concentrator in connection.  GOVERNMENT COLD STORAGE.  An   Institution  which will be of  Great  Value in   Kootenay.  Mr. A. W. Grindley, the superintendent of the government cold storage  warehouse here, took over the building  on Thursday iind will open an oflice  near the warehouse shortly in a building to be erected for his^accommodation. The contractor for building the  warehouse was J. Keriiaghan. The  building is constructed according to  the most approved plans for cold storage by the use of ice. It has a capacity  ot about four carloads anel is to be  used mainly for the storage of butter,  eggs, poultry and fruit and to facilitate profitable trade in good products  between the Northwest Territories  and the Kootenay districts. It will  also be available to shippers of fruit,  as far as space will allow from Western points in British Columbia.  Without cold storage at Revelstoke  butter and eggs from Alberta were  delivered in the mining towns and  camps, often in a spoiled condition.  There was also delay in filling orders..  The Department has now a first  class cold storage at the creamery at.  Calgary, of about six carloads capacity.  1'lie cold storage rooms at Calgary  unci Revelstoke are for use of shippers  us public warehouses at low rates.  Arrangements are being miide with  the 0. P. R. to give the privilege of  storage in transit at through rates of  freight.,  The charges for storage are fixed at  10c. per 100 pounds of butter for one  month or less. On small packages of  butter the charges are 5c. per package  for one month or less. The rate on  eggs is 5c. per case, of 30 dozen .per  month or 15c. per barrel per month.  Butter will be sent through" these  cold storage rooms from the creameries which are under the management  of the government in the Northwest  Territories. Such butter from the  government creitmeri.es will be for  sale on application to A. W. Grindley,  Supt. of cold storage at Revelstoke, to  C. Marker, Calgary, or direct to the  Commissioner of Agriculture, Ottawa.  ' Creamery butter will be .sold in 5 or  10 box lots to merchants at wholesale  prices, and in single packages only at  an advanced price. The .Department  desires! to do all'- business of selling  through the merchants in ,each local-  ���������tv*       '   ��������� ".---.-.  -"-The superintendent of cold storage  at Revelstoke will not act as salesman  or consignee for any goods except*the  butter from the government creameries,, but he will furnish all information  he can to intending shippers and hold  the goods in c-oldstorage to theirorder.  The snme will be done at Calgary.  It is expected that these conveniences for protecting perishable goods  will lead to a great development of  business between the Northwest farm's-  and the mining, camps. . The trade  which has.hitherto gone by way of  Spokane should hereafter go by. way  ot Revelstoke. *  Prof. Robertson, when "on his visit  of inspection here on May 29th, found  that a portion of the ice stored at this  point was of inferior quality, consequently there has been some waste,  but now that the insulation of the  building is finished he expects the  supply of ice will be sufficient to last  until the: middle of September.  ���������"As thei-e-is-an-abundiint-supply���������of-  ice at the Calgary cold storage, and  that is the best building for the purpose west of Montreal, any butter' or  eggs from the Territories, to be held  more* than two weeks.should be stored  at Calgary for this season.     "  '   ���������    o 1  The Gold Commissioner has taken  the Jubilee celebration in hand ami  rustled together up to last night $2-10,  for subscription to sports on thai day.  Mr. Perrv Leake, accompanied by  Mr. Thompson E. L. Taylor, of Van-  e*ouver,"returned fronj Ferguson on  Thursday. They were* down inspecting soinu mining properties. -  H.A. Brown.secretary of the Orphan  Boy Co., Mayor Tcmpli'.tniiii. of Vancouver, and C. N. Davidson, the purchaser of the Orphan Boy claim, started for tha Orphan Boy mine on Thursday morning. The object or the trip  has not yet transpired.  Dan Mann, of Montreal, and Wm.  McKenzie. of Toronto, have* been given the contract lo build the Crow's  Nest Pass Railway from Fort Macleod  to Nelson. The distance is 330 miles  and the cost will be about $8,000,000.  The road will be completed as rapidly  as possible. ������  Insp. A. M" Jarvis, of the N. W. M.  Police was in town yesterday on his  return from Kaslo. He is a large  shareholder in the Ibex of Slocan and  has been visiting the properties of the*  company nt Whitewater anel Ainsworth, with till of which ho is most  favorably impressed. ,  Rev. F. A. Ford litis received  intelligence that a complete set of  altar vessels iinel linen has been  'shipped to the Church of England  here, donated by Miss Rawson, of Mill  House, Halifax, England, who gives a  set to some church every year in  memory of her mother.  Jack Hughes, fitter on the work  train, had a bad accident on Thursday.  He was uniler one of the ears about (J  miles west, where the steam shovel is  working, when the car, which was  hooked on to a team moved on, the  driver not knowing that Hughes was  underneath. His ieg was bent at the  time and his foot braced against the  rail. The brake beam caught him on  the knee and foi-ceel the leg against the  rail until it was broken. Mr. Hughes  was brought down to town and placed  in McCarty's boarding bouse, where  he is at present.doing favorably.  EXPORT DUTY OH ORE  LOGS AND PULPWOOD ADOPTED BY THE GOVERNMENT.

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS-  culnr branch of the public service  when so little attention, is paid to  the -wants aud requirements of the'  public.  The Postmaster General has devoted a good deal of his attention  to the dismissal of British Columbia postmasters for political reasons. The public ��������� generally are  beginning to enquire whether Mr.  Mulock appreciates the duties of  the position which he has seen fit  to assume, or whether the acceleration ef the mail service is to become secondary to the exigencies  of politics.  .   ���������Calgary Herald  INDIAN UPRISING  SERIOUS   TROUBLE   EXPECTED  IN   MONTANA  THE AGREEMENT  1..-A.U correspond onoo must bo legibly  written on one side of the paper only.  2.

WEDNESDAY.  JUNE   0,  1S07  KOOTENA Y MAILS  There can be no doubt that the  mail service in British Columbia-  more   especially    iu   Kootenay���������  requires immediate attention   on  the   .part    of    the   Post,Master  _Gene'ral7~J_Th"e"~pi,esent-system���������is-  useless to the public and not by  any means creditable to those who  are responsible for it.   Statements  have appeared from time to time  in oflicial and semi-official papers  to the effect that the Post Ollice  Department  intejuded    to    make  such improvements  in   the Kootenay   mail service as  were necessary to keep pace with the rapid  increase in population and business  which    has   taken   place    there  during the past year.    Up to   the  present time, however, the public  has had to be content with promises, lor nothing, has been   done.  As  a  consequence,   business  lias  been   retarded and   more or  less  inconvenience    suffered    by    an  already long suffering public.   An  opportunity     offered     itself     a  little    while   iiro   to   better    the  existing conditions, which it was  hoped was so good that even   a  blind  man   could   see  it.      The  announcement   had    been   made  several month ago  by   the Canadian   PaciOc   Railway   Company  that as a result of its acquisition  of the boats of the Columbia to  Kootenay   Navigation   Company,  it would  operate a daily^ service  from   Revelstoke   to   all   points  south in West Kootenay, instead  of a tri-weekly seryice as before,  the change to come into effect on  June  1st.    It   was naturally  be  lieved by all parties interested-  business men and others���������that the  post office department would take  advantage of the change aHd institute a daily mail  service over  the route.    Up  to   the   time  of  writing nothing has  been  done,  and mails are held over although  trains are  running which would  carry them to their destination.

probability of the Government announcement on the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway being made in the Commons

liseto a discussion of several days
duration. The Opposition will do their
utmost to find ground for criticism.
There is one member who adheres
to the stand he announced in Parliament some* weeks ago. This is young
Mr. Mclnnis, of Vancouver, who
think- the Canadian Pacific Railway
gets too big a bargain, aud his opinion
is based on stitoments made by him
on the floor of Pailiament when he
asked for Federal disallowance of the

The intention of the Government to
push tlie fce-s-iion thiough to an early

Altogether about live million acres
are tied up by the failure, of these

The Government was asked to take
