HERjVr.D has for smut* time past  been aware that its contiynporarv in  town has been uttering sui.ill yelps of  defiance atit in every issut*,c"imly tuvittv  ns ivbusy man walking np street might  be vaguely conscious of ji small dog  yapping at him-froin a "neighbouring  alley way. -It wtis no part eif the Herald's" intention, when established  here, to indulge in a wordy contest  with another join-mil about, trifles.  New-paper controversy of a personal  nature, simply makes the newspnpeis  engaging in it look lirst ridiculous an 1  then tiresome in the eyes of the  modern public*! However our. contemporary is, as wc* can quite understand, under strong constraint to appear both smart and outspoken. It  has a long record in the past, for el illness and subservience to pull np with,  and if possible efface. We can also  understand that- under these circumstances it considered the HeRjVLD a  fiiii'-niiirk-for small impertinences-and  iiiuuendos. That, is probably its idea  of journalism. But when in its last  issue it describes the friends and sup  porters of'the Herald as ������������������peanut  politicians and soreheads," it simply  allows its spleen to overflow the mark  not. merely of decent journalism,' but  of the ordinary conventions of civilized  society.' <-The Herald was invited  here by all the most prominent und  enterprising men in Revelstoke, who  wsre anxious to sec the town repre  sen ted to the outside world by a live  and well conducted paper. We looked  over the field, found it to all intents  and purposes vacant and stepped in  The result litis justified both our own  sagaciiy in acci*pting tlio invitation  here and theirs, who extended it.  Since our arrival here the old time.two  by fonrideasofthep -litical pocket organ  already in possession have been more  at a discount than ever, so much so  that a quite noticeable -improvement  has taken place in its own columns.  The Herald invites to continue the  upward movement. It will find that,  little is to be gained by abusing the  community for suppoiting the Herald. If it cannot contain its feelings  at all events let it confine its abuse  to ourselves.   We can stand it.  CANADA'S GOLD RESERVE  A very sensible suggestion has been  miulc by XV. Mclnnis, M. P., the member for Vancouver, who has just returned from a trip to Alaska. II is  to the effect that if the Dominion  government adheres to its policy of  reserving claims in the Yukon district,  it should put its reserved claims into  blocks and not except every other  claim from entry, as is the system ut  present adopted. There seems to be  no doubt that the government intends  to stick to its policy ot reserving one  half the claims in the district for the  benefit of the Dominion and viewed as  in abstract proposition and if the  project is honestly carried out.the idea  is quite in accordance with the present  trend of opinion with regard to the  best methods of disposing of the  national resources. It must be re-,  niembered however that abstract  theories do not always work out in  practice. In the old country in pur-  biiit'-.of the same idea such a heavy  royally has bean imposed on the  products of gold and silver mines, as  to rentier the working of anything of  the kind almost out of the question.  There is in consequence no mining  done and no royalty collected.  to stand guard over the truiiMiry  against his own followers twenty years  ago, what eternal vigilance will be  reel ui red to keep their successoi-s from  invading the virgin golel reserves of  the nation on the Yukon. The government may find that their adoption of  a socialistic principle without ihe security against public: dishonestly,  which the full socialist programme  provides, a difficult matter to curry  out so as to achieve the results, for  which it is being avowedly introduced.  Now, it is obvious that under any  plan of reservation the scheme of holding back certain claims from entry,  whether it be in blocks or by every  other claim, is going to be attended  with considerable ditilculties. though  the former is the more practical plan  of the two. It will for instance be  impossible for the government to wait  until some poor devils of prospectors  have forced their way into a certain  district, and made some good strikes,  and then step in and 'declare the section reserved. The govertiriient will  eil her have to hire its own prospectors  and hunt, up good claims for itself or  else' declare certain portions of the  country reserved on the olf chance  that theie may bu something in it.  The very nature of the*'Yukon country  in wliich according tei "all'accounts  indications Are totally .absent and the  element of luck enters into the discovery of geiotl ground to an even greater  extent than in better knovvnniiniiig  countries', will lender the reservation  of certain blocks eili' hand a part icularly  speculative proceeding. On the other  hand, while the average prospector is  as honest a man tis the rest of us, the  temptations to which a government  piospector would be exposed would be.  so much greater than (hose even of'  the ordinary government official, as to  render much of a tangible result to the  country from their services exceedingly  problematical.  Mr. Sifton's own scheme of reserving  every other claim  was so .obviously.

If tiny man understands  the situation in Yukon, it is Mr. Ogil  vie, and when on his return to civili  ztition he heard for the first time of  the proposition, he was obviously  aghast at the very idea. Mr. Mclnnis'  ide'a of reservation by blocks, while  open as has been pointed out to objections of its own, will not at all  events create such confusion and dis  ttirbanue in the Yukon mining camps  as the other scheme is bound to do,  and the principle that the gold in the  ground belongs lirst. of all to the nation  will be us much preserved by it as by  the other.

And still  more particularly is it the case, when  the supporters nf the government are  so strongly individualistic, not to  say personal,in their conception of the  term "benefit to the country" ns those  of the present one have during the  past fifteen months shewn themselves  in every possible manner to be. Already a bold attempt has been made  to divert a portion of these benefits into  the pockets of some "lifelong Grits" of  Toronto.

OCTOBER  13, 07.  DA VIES' ERE A K  English   financial   circles  Tho wonderful increase in tho  earnings of the Canadian Pacific  road has created, a great deal of  excicoment in Montreal. For the  last week in September a, gain of  $250,000 over the corresponding  period of last year is more eloquent proof of improvement in  business throughout the country  than would be volumes of commercial reports. This increase is  tho largest in tho ��������� history of the  the company, going $100,0C3 more  than any increase since the road  was built. ��������� More remarkable still  is the fact that only twice on  every railro'id on this continent  has a company shown a growth of  earnings greater than this, and  those were' in tho n-nndytimes in  the eighties. October was a banner period for the Canadian  Pacific railway earnings last year,  when ,the statement showed a  return of ,.$100,000 ; whereas the  "last.week", period of September  this year, which gives earnings of  $7-10,000, included nine days only.  have  by a  of Sir  been very much amused  joke at the expense of one  Wilfrid Laurier's ministers, Sir  Louis Davies.. When the prospectus of a gold mining company  bearing the name of Sir Charles  Tapper as one of its promoters  was published, Sir Louis made a  most violeut speech denouncing  the Clondike "and all other Canadian gjld mining enterprises  saying "a goldmine needs only a  bole in the ground and a liar.'"  This statement, .which was  generally attributed to jealousy,  had no effect on ' hu success of the  enterprise, and the necessary  capital was at once subscribed.  In consequence of its success  auother company was floated  almost immediately in which  Colonel Domville and some other  Liberals were interested and the  name of the sanie Canadian minis-,  ter who had; warned Londoners  against all Canadian1 gold mines  on the prospectus as one of the  promoters. The Loudon people  are asking if this is a sample of  Canadian fair dealing.  An article on "Canada and the  Dingley Bill" is contributed to tho  October number of the North  American-Review by John Churl-,  ton, M. P. An emphatic protest is  uttered against the Dingley bill,  than which, it is declared, no more  potent influence can be called into  action for the purpose of rendering harmony, good will, and, much  more, political iv.iiou, impossible,  between Canada aud the Uuited  States.     I ^  THE LIEUT. GOVERNOR  THE WORLD  AND ALL THAT   IS   HAPPENING  THEREIN  AWFUL   FIRE    IN    DAKOTA  LIBERAL LEADERS  At the civic reception tendered  to Sir Wilfrid Laurier by both  political parties at Toronto,   the  ' Hon. Edward Blake made a telling  speech in which he eulogized the  premier, lie made a big hit when  ha said:    "I am  told sometimes,  -aad-1-do-noc^iu-the-least^dispute-  it, that I am a failure- in "politics.  There- is oue thing and one thing  only in which I claim with  absoluteeonfidencein your verdict,-'  that I am successful, and that is  in the choice of my successors.'"  "Twenty-five years a~;o,'' continued Mr. Blake, "when 1 resigued  the pbsitiou of premier of Ontario,  I" named Sir Oliver Mowat, who  governed the province for a longer  period than any prime minister in  any English speaking country in  our days (applause), who was never  beaten, who withdrew in the end,  nominating his successor, as I did  mine, to discharge what he  believed to be a still higher place  in the public service, and who we  all know, is shortly to come  amongst us again full of years and  honors to remain for what we hope  will be a long old age, filling the  highest place of all in this province  Ten years ago, or 11, being obliged  by my health to resign the leadership of the Liberal : party, a  deputation of my colleagues called  upon, me to ask my advice as to  whom 1 would name or suggest "as  my successor in the lead. I named  a man from a province which had  never had a first minister of  Canada: I named a man of a  race of the minority of the whole  of Canada; I named a man of a  creed of theminority of the whole  of Canada, and I was told by some  there- were great risks to be  run in selecting the man I named.  I named him because I knew the  man. (Applause). I named him  because I believed it would be an  important step in advance and in  the interests of the country that  one or other of the great political  parties should be lead by a French  Canadian, a Roman Catholic.

In responding to the toast ol his  health the Hon. C. 11. Mackintosh referred to what Lord Dull'erin had done  for tho interests of Canada and the advancement ol the empire. British  Columbia, he said, was capable of any  amount of development, to the extent  of LCGt) miles. Tliere were great gold  mines and enormous silver mines in  British : Columbia, which was the  greatest mining country in the world.  In the development ot the country  what they wanted was British bot-  _toms and.British railways. The';climate was more conifo~Habli_r"th-in'~~irr  Colorado and other states of America,  and what they snoulel..try to do was to  keep British money in the umpire. It  was useless i'or men with small means  to go to Yukon or British Columbia to  develop the country, for they would  lose their capital: what was wanted  was large capital and the best appliances.'!?.l ! trade of Yukon was going  to be immense, and he wanted it Id belong :to,British people.

JUSTICE IN QUEBEC  The   Tarte-Grenier   Libel    t-ase    Reviewed���������The' Court Criticised,  Toronto, Oct.5.���������The Mail's Montreal correspondent says: "There is  not a newspaper in the citv except La  Patrie. owned by Mr, I'ai'tc's own  sons, and tho Herald, in whicli Green-  shields of the Druniiiiond County  railway, who purchased La l.'atric lor  Tarte s sons, is a largo shareholder,  that attempts to justify the transactions of wliich it 'was shown during  ing the trial, on his own evidence, ho  was guilty. OC course under the  circumstances, it was well nigh impossible for the jury to iind nny other  verdict than the one they did. Mr.  Tarte was fortunate in haying as presiding judge, Justice Wuitele, who  gave the strictest interpretation to the  law, and shut out a mass ol evidence  which tho defence was ready to offer,  and on which the case is to be apreiiled  to a higher court.  "It will thus be seen by the country  that the hide bound Liberal organs,  which are claiming the trial as a vindication of Tarte, have no justillcation  in fact, II: Tarte was as anxious as he  professed to be to have all the truth  known, why did his counsel raise objections to the production ol'; evidence?  From tho very outset of the trial it >s  well to remember, the ���������accused was  treated in an unjustifiably harsh manner. He was placed in the dock, the  first defendant in a criminal libel case  to be treated m such a manner by (he ,  court and thus deprived of easy access to counsel, while Mr. Tarte sat  beside his lawyers and kepi them constantly posted. The prosecution,evidently with the intention of influencing tho jury, set mi the cry tlmt Gren-  ier was simply a 'blackmailer and that  wanting to blackmail the minister- he.  had attacked him. Not a particle of  evidence was brought forward to substantiate that pretention. On the contrary, it was shown tho French Liberals who ran Soir, the campaign paper  in Montreal, owed Grenicr .$7C0; that  the debt was recognized as a party  debt, and that in seeking to have it  paid he was simply claiming what was  due to him.  "The court in itschargeattemptedto  justify the pretention of the prosecution. During the trial, Mr. Tarte's  counsel was allowed, without any admonition from the bench, to insult the  counsel from tho defence and hurl  epithets at Grenicr' when he wtis in  the witness box. Never has a trial  been conducted in such a inn unci* before in a Montreal court and it is hoped never will it again. When Judge  Wtirtele came to charge tho jury, lie  told them that even if all the accusations against Tarte had been proved,  except one:, they would have to Unci  tlie accused guilty on that one. Is it  any wonder then the verdict was such  as it was?"  ELECTIONS  SILVER COINAGE  WRITS  ISSUED     FOR  ELECTIONS  SIX   BY-  F0R THE N.W.T.

JULIAN HAWTHORNE   ON INDIA  The Cosmopolitan" magazine sent  Mr. Julian Hawthorne to India so ascertain the fact* in regard to British  rule, and to report on the condition of  the natives. Upon the publication of  Mr. Hawthorne's lirst article. :, the  editor of the magazine indulged in a  most abusive tirade against Kngland,  holding the British responsible for the  horrors of the English famine, and  drawing most uncomplimentary conclusions froin the fact that the British  people spent niillions.ypn tlie . jubilee  festivities while: their Indian fellow  subjects were dying from a lack of  food.  The article excited much indignation and many reolies were made to* it  The most conclusive answer, however,  appears in the columns of the Cosmo-  pojitan itself. Mr. Hawthorneconcltid-  es in the October number liis series of  letters by bearing testimony to the  value of British rule in India, tind to  the heroic and uhsellish work that has  been done by British officials and civilians in combatting the famine and the  plague. Mr. Hawthorne appears to  have written this last letter for the especial purpose of answering every one  of his editor's charges against the English. Referring to the sums paid for  seats on the line of the jubilee procession he says that much of this money  was paid by wealthy Americans, und  he further.says that the poopleof the  United States cannot afford to criticize English title in India so long as  there remain blemishes on the administration by the States of tho affairs of  their Indian wards.  The most interesting feature of Mr.  Hawthorne's article, to British readers  lies'in the fjcneral defence "'which he  makes of British rule. No other nation, he says, could have "accomplished  the work that England has done.  Providence seems to have delegated to  the British people the mission of giving law-.'ind-oreler and Christianity to  the millions of India, and What failure  there has been is due to the failure of  the Brit'sh peoplo to be themselves a  Christian nation. It will be a surprise  to many pe;ople to find so friendly a  ci-itic of the British as Mr.'.Hawthorne'  denying that they are a Christian nation. To Christianity he looks as the  one thing that can lift India out of  darkness-, and he says, with evident  sorrow, that missionary effort''is not  as vigorous or as effective as it was  some years ago. Such a statement  corning from an intelligent and observant layman, should do much to  stir up among our church people renewed interest in the great mission  field of India.     '"  James A.

Taken From Tho Calgary Herald.  .Ml!. Editoiii-Now that it is known  for certain that starvation will exist  in the Yukon, stops should be taken  immediately, by the-government, to  send in provisions and extra blankets  and clothing, and this can only bt-idone  by Canada's overland route���������and in  the following manner���������make Lake  Francis the basis of supplies, and send  in word via the monthly dog mail service from the coast to. Dawson city,  that provisions etc., will be forwarded  to Lake Francis, wliich tire for sale,  but only in small lots; and' have some  policemen, who know the most ,of the  miners by sight, to see that the same  man does not get served twice, anel  thus get ahead of others who have received none. No doubt the expense  and hardships will be serious to get  these supplies from Edmonton to Lake  Francis. ���������-Perhaps the supplies could  be forwarded even closer to the  Yukon, but in the meantime it is better to get'them to the ' lake, so as to  make sure of being within a reasonable distance for clog trains to come  out anrl get then*.  How are the supplies  to   be   got to  ���������Lake Francis from   Edmonton'*''   The  answer is via ruins of Fort Assiniboine,  Lesser'Slave lake. Peace river landing,  Liard river and on  to Francis lake,  using nothing but Indian ponies (which  are-nlways accustomed to pawing their  own grub all through the: most severe  winters)  and   the ordinary jumpers,  which will carry from   50'J   to   GO*) lbs  each.   The disttince   from Edmonton  to Lake Francis is just about tlio same  as from Edmonton to  Winnipeg, and  tbe climate all the way if anything is  milder aud better and no more   snow.  Of course qiiite a number of the jnmp-  crswiUTnrv7rto"lreMo������l^lTvitlrfiotliin"g  ���������but oats and baled buy so   as to  feed  the ponies'where actually necessary,  as this undertaking must bo no fool's  errand.   The whole oullit   of   freighters    must   be   under     the     orders,  and obey them, of one competent head  who will have to  have   assistants to  see that everything is done as directed  Each freighter must carry a good axe  so as to use ic where necessary.   On  arriving at Lake Francis the whole of  the piovisions, e!cc., sheiiild be handed  over to the N. W.  M.  police for sale  and distribution on  the government's  account.   .The whole   undertaking is  ejnite a heavy-one,.but can be carried  through if properly organized without  delay, so that it can get under way the  lirst sleighing we have and the rivers  and wet places frozen over.    Ic will re  quire about 1,500*.jumpers, so ys to include  fodder and provisions for ��������� the  'return journey of the freighters and  possibly that of many disgusted Yu-  konites.   The Hudson's Bay Company  would, of course, be the best firm to  undert'ike   tlie   thing, but   there are  other good enterprising firms who no  doubt can bo got in the Edmonton district to undertake it in company with  one another, if the government act in  a business-like way and  not hamper  them with official ied tapisni.  "Owing to there being no road (but  one can easily be opened) for a large  part of the way, the,, writer thinks it  would take at least three months travelling to reach Lake Francis, so that  there is no time for delay or hesitation, and the government must come  to the rescue of the unfortunate peo  pie whose lives are . now ��������� in jeopardy,  possibly through their own foolishness  and perhaps not so.
