M.P.P.'.Renounce* his  Support of the Turner Government   ���������  To the Kelltor of t~ic IIkiuld:    ..     .  De.vii Sm:��������� For this information of  my political friends and'supporters,.I  hupfto hiiy'^th.it thejappointiiient of  John D. Sililmld, as Gold ConiiiiiNsion-  t'C, was made without my advice iir  knowledge, nnd fort her, I have had tin  information directly eir indirectly  from any official source that any such  appointment was lOiiCeniplated. "Be-  injj a government supporter and nieiii-  hcr _ of ,'the .-legislature, I" c-liiin'i-the  right to at* least -advise'with the* executive as to who would he' a likely  nud efficient official for the position.  This is'the second tiiut-'iuy political  leader has in.-Kleanpniiitinetitt. without  niy knowledge. I cannot longer support a Premier under ptich degrading  conditions, and have decided to cut  myself clear of the Turner, government without, further ceiemony.*  _  Should niy political friends and supporters object. to such n proceeding,  in that -event' 1 will be-pleased to  lesigii my seat in the legislature.  I wish to add in conclusion that the  troubles between myself and a number of .the member of the Executive  are not of recent origin. During last  session I left the House intending at  that time to" cut myself clear of the  Government party and wrote Hon.  JMr. Turner'a letter covering 7 'pages  of foolscap, explaining my reasons for  so doing, and that I intended placing  my resignation .with proper authority.  I was sent for and matters were patched up temporarily. Since that.time  there has heen friction, evasion and  wriggling. - It was not so in Theodor  Davie's (i me. *     ,   -i'     -" *!<.  J. M. K-.~M.ik.  Itevelstoke,; Dec. 10th.        "     : -   ' ���������  ..Of course Mr. Kellie is the best judge  of the* chai ncter of the private relations  existing between himself and the government, -The Herald docs not know-  what the;other appointment'alluded  to in the above letter was, but it is possible that in the present case of"the  gold -conimissio'nership Mv. Kellie's  absence in tbe.east may have had  something to do with his not beiug  consulted in the'matter. . Al the same  time, as we said before, Mr. Kellie himself, is the best judge of the matter.  At the same time its he was elected to  support the Turper government, lhe  Herald quite agrees'with him that if  his. supporters in -.the *J constituency!  call*" 'upon' ^lffm*'\^tf^ieiig^i^'ifiiii  seat ��������� -he . is-- .tin'.- honor ��������� , IfcSiiiSd'  to do ' so. Mr. ' Kellie's quarrel  with the government is a personal one..  It is not based on opposition, to,their  policy. He has openly withdrawn his  support ori this ground, without giving himself lime to. consult anybody  with a possible exception of a few personal friends in Kevelstoke. Ho represents a large arid important constituency, containing within it places'totnl-  ly unaffected by the" recent appointment. The electorate which chose a  supporter of the government to  represent.them should have a right to  Tiiy whether they now prefer t~oT. lie  represented by a member of the opposition.and it is Mr. Kellie's duty to them  and to himself, as an honest man, to  .give theni an oppoitunity of'doing so,  which he can now only do hy .res.ign-  i������ig-   ������t>v TRIAL.pF LUETGERT  A   . ' ,        - -  The   Jtury  Secured  and   the   Opening  "-���������"Arguments Made  Chicago, Dec. H.���������After two weeks  spenl in securingSi, jury' the. second  trial of Atlolph L.". Luetgert commenced before Judge Giiry Wednesday. - The court room wan ^crowded  when the case was called, and^ every  available sent was taken, while scores  of curious men and women stood -in  iowa behind the railings, anxious to  hear the proceedings and geta glimpse  of the man who is charged with boiling his wife away in caustic potash in  one of his own sausage vats. The  probecntion, as in the former trial, was  represented by State Attorney Detieen  and his assistant, Mr. McEwiin. Mr.  Luetgert is defended by Attorneys  Harmon. Reise and Ke.hoe. McEwan  made the opening address for the state  and his speech, which occupied the  greater part of the session, did not  deviate from the line he pursued at  the former trial. McEwan made no  attempt at dramatic effort. He quietly but impressively told the 12 men the  familiar story of the night of the 1st  of Miiy. At the close of McEwan's  address an adjournment was taken  until the afternoon at the request of  Attorney Harmon. At the afternoon  session Luetgert's side of the case was  presented to the jury  The Wonderful Waverley.  As some doubts have been expressed  whether the paragraph under the  above title appealed in the Weekly  Rossland Miner of. Sept. Oth last, the  Herald wishes to state that a search  made nt Kossland by request of this  paper shows that it'did appear in tlie  issue iff question.  CLOSING EXERCISES'.  At the Public School and  ifr.icr'tainment  by the Children.  ... Yesterday at 1.30 p. m.. the closing  examinations of the school tenii took  place, and the* classes were put thiough  their facings Iiy Principal McTag^ait.-  The attendance of the public was not  nearly ns laige"--as it ought to have  been. The number of the children in  attendance sheweel ft marked increa'c  since the examination in the sumrr.er.^  and Mr. McTaggart 'and Mi" s Ev.in.s  may he congratulated on the success,  whicli has attended their effort's- iu  bringing so much fresh material into  shape. The manner.s"and deportment  of the children are a feature of the  school and every term shews marked  improvement in this most.important  particular. Even in their playg'ioutid  when freo freim.the restiaint of the  schoolroom the children" shew in their  behaviour proofs' of the kindly but  firm ar.d persistent discipline obtaining in the institution.  The conceit by the children in Tapping's hall was well attended and  proved a great treat. The entertainment had been thoroughly rehearsed  and passed off without a hitch. Tlie  programme "shewed .out admirably the  progress of the pupils in the'lighter  portions of their studies, comprising  singing, recitations-and calisthenics  and two ne.it little speeches by L.

The plan is lo  use either the. Chilcat Pass and the  Dalton Trail, or White Pass, with the  preference to the former route.  The men who were .-it the war department toelay assured Secretary Alger that they could take the locomo-  tatives up the hills of either of these  passes, with the possibility of requiring the assistance of cable power in  one place about a half mile long. Once  over that place near the head of Chilkat pass there would be no difficulty,  thev.said, in making good time across  country over the snow tt Fort Selkirk  and thence to Dawson.  V ������.   The Stampede for Home  A Victoria despatch "ays: By tbe  steamer Topeka from Dyea news is  received that more than 1000 ill-  provisioned men stampeded from  Dawson during the latter part of October and, impelled by the haunting  fear of famine, nre now madly forcing  their way over the mountains. Auk,  the Indian mail carrier who bringw  this report, left the Yukon capital  fully W days after the Dalton party.  He says that tbe vanguard of the  terror-stricken army is-following less  thnn a week behind him. Auk declares that fully 25-per cent, of the  staniDeding army will never live to  recite the terrors of their flight from  the north.  Card of Thanks.  Messrs.

After years. of uncertainty tbe  question of removing the C. P. R.  shops to Calgary is   assuming  a  definite shape; It" has always been  understood that the shops would  sooner or later come here, but the  people   of   Calgary,. while  they  might have had' their own ideas  as to  the   cause  of   the   delay,  were  -not   cognizant    until   Mr.  Whyte's visit  on Friday   of   the  actual reason.    The interview in  another part of  today's Herald  contains  some   important  statements which Calgariahs will read  with ��������� - peculiar     interest.   ���������   The  situation is practically this:   The  time has arrived when the C. P. R.  must  make  some  change  in  its  divisional  points   and    shops   to  enable them.to more advantageously handle the increasing traffic.  Ia   the  mountains   the   changes  have been definitely-decided on.  Revelstoke    will"' be-     bothB|a  divisional  and   shop  centre   and  Donald will be abandoned.   There  are already extensive    shops   in  .Winnipeg where   all   the   heavy  repairing for this division is done;  but it has   become  necessary to  -establish another .shop'-for heavy  ' repairs at an intermediate point.  Itis now pretty well: known that  the only suitable poiuts for' this  purpose are Calvary und Medicine  Hat. ' The former point, with its  residential advantages, its larger  ���������schools,���������its-position-as a-railway  centre,   and    i'or    other,, reasons,  would appear to. the unprejudiced  miod the better point"-" The only  advantage possessed by- Medicine  Hat that is not, yet available in  .  Calgary is'its natural gas-.^which  is   an   important   factor   irit.the  running of machine shops', useful  as it is Jor.both "lifcht"and fuel.;  But that Calgary can be placed on  an equal footing.*, with 'Medicine  Hat    in"   this    respect    is   now  generally admitted, even.by the  C, P.-R.. It is simply a question of  deep boring.--  -Cal-aiy has* now received au intimation that the questio'nof concessions will enter into-the deal.  The C. P. R. is apparently willing  to ��������� give Calgary the shops if  Calgarygivesso'mething in return.  That v>the~ shops :W6a|d' be an  exceedingly:- valuable'^accluisitibh  to the city goes without saying.*  They .woulel bring a large'number  of mechanics", conductors, firemen,1  engineers,'. brakemeh.; and others,  all of 'whom..would make- their  home inTCaTgary. The question,  then for bur-citizens 'to cbnsider'is  .- what can. they offer as. a quid pro  .quo. The-Herald believes that a  cash bonus would be JbathinapTvis-  aible and nnhecessary"' 'Thp'town  can ill afford it ana there is no  evidence that* the C. P. R. wants-  it. .Wbat_tbe~asf'~*an~ we offer?.

P.-B.  owns sufficient land .in a central  position, but if they do notj right  here, in -The HebaLd's ��������� opinion; is  where thecity-might step in; ��������� An  offer of land on which to erecttheir  . shops,  round, .-houses;-.and  offices  ��������� might  now  materially^ influence  -the company  ta'come to a quick  decision." If ~tJ"is*.i~ not considered  sufficient the": citjr- might'discuss  the granting of-other concessions  such as exemption from taxes, and  this it would probably" be necessary to give.*  To sum up: As The Herald  estimates the feeling of the people,  Calgary wants the shops and is  willing to offer any inducement  within reason to get them. Anything unreasonable, such as a  heavy cash bonus, it would be useless to suggest, and it in The Herald's opinion it would . not be  asked. We believe the C. P. R. is  in the mood to'discuss the matter  and believe n'o time should be  lost by the city council and board  of trade, acting iointly, in getting  down to the business details. The  time to act is right now and the  first step,in The Herald's opinion  must come from the city.

Main Street  Revelstoke  Struck Calgary on Friday Night���������  They Give a Favorable Report "of  the Route ���������Will Return in the  Spring.  From tho Calgary Herald.  The Herald having received word  that two'Yukon travellets from the  far north were on the train from Edmonton on Friday, sent a representative to interview them. Their names  were Ij. Warmolts, of Chicago,  leader of the Warmolts'- overland  expedition, accompanied a by Edward  Bock. They arrived in Edmonton on  Thursday night from Fort Resolution,  on Great Slave lake, twelve hundred miles north of "Calgary, where  the rest of the party, twelve in- number, are camped for the winter in a  substantial building belonging to the  Hudson's Bay Co.  The Warmolts' expedition left Chicago on August 25th and reached Fort  Resolution on October 12, going down  the Athabasca river and Slave lake_ in  boats which took ten days to build.  AVarmolts and Bock arc returning to  Chicago until the spring, when they  will return with Warmolts' wife and  three small children and additional  supplies, to join their friends aETfortT  Resolution, whom they report to be  happy and well with lot-i of provisions,  including fresh moose meat and the  best of white fish. The trip to Fori  Resolution was made without accident  and the party are emphatic in their  opinion that tbe all-Canadian route  is not only practicable, but the easiest  and cheapest of all.  ' When told that derogatory reports  had appeared in the Chicago Tribune  concerning the Edmonton route,.War;  molts and Bock were indignant. They  sav that any man/who condemns the  Edmonton'route in thu way that Fred  Merriweather and XV. A. Foote are  reported to have done does not base  his remarks on facts.  On their trip Warmolts and Bock  walked from Flirt Resolution to Fort  Smith, 215 miles, packing their provisions wilh the assistance of an  Indian. At Fori Smith they secured  one train of clogs and went along the  ice-on the edges of the river to Fort  Chippewyan," where ��������� additional dogs  were bought, with which thev reached  Heart -jake, 210 miles norlh of Edmonton, which town was rcachod by team.  The whole distance, some 1.200 miles,  was covered in thirty-one days acUial  travelling, twenty days being spent at  Hudson's Bay Forts tind in hunting  bear, moose and other animals. They  camped out every night without'either  tents or sleeping" bags ��������� tinrt -.slept  comfortably " with nothing ���������, birt.,-  their blankets in 15 below zero  "~They.renprt. having passed several  bars on tneTrrer whore ~I0 a day per*  man could be "matte with hard work,  but as their destination- is-.-.j.Jio head  waters ot the Peel river] I hey. did'' pot  stop. People along the route, both'  the Hudson's Bay'ofticers, Indians and  breeds all treated the Klondikers well  and gaye them every assistance. Mr.'  Warmolts lives at 125 South Ut.yne  avenue, Chicago, and says he intends  to give all information in his power to  intending Klondikers.'

It seems to the  Herald that it woulel be a good idea  Ui emphasize tl.e faet that this town  is an important mining centre by ex-  teiiding tbe scope of the Board of  so as to include a mining association.  Several mining companies either have  or will shortly be opening their head,  offices here, and so important an element in the constitution "of this community should have a special recognition by the Bonid. The. two 'departments of commerce and mining might  easily work under the one committee,  particularly as scarcely a menilx'i- of  the.

"The sunny ways of patriotism'  seem to l>**. in danger of an eclipse,  vi.-ible pretty soon in Quebec. There  are ominous rumors about, the altitude  of the Pope to the famous settlement  of the school initiation, and the .only  course which seems to present itself  as feasible to the patriots in office is  to pull Mr. G teen way's leg for further  concessions to the Roman Catholic  minority. It is an interesting situation for that gentleman. If be yields  to lhe demands of his Liberal allies in  Ottawa his own administration i.s  doomed. I* be does not Quebec, al  ready shewing marked signs of restive;,  ness. will be iu open revolt. But the  settlement of grave rpiestiniH not on  anyhrnud principle, but accoriling to  the political necessities of the miiment  carries its own nemesis with it. It  was obvious from the start that there  mnst be a discrepancy s<imcwh*~re between the kind e>f set tleinent promised  to Roman Catholic Quebec in retm-n  for her fifty seats, and the .expectations raised in the breasts of the  Methodists and Orangemen, who de  serted their old party last election to  vote for Laurier. It would have  passed the wit of man to frame .1 policy  to catch both these interests without  some hanky panky somewhere*. But  a fpiestion, which is only an incident  in a quarrel, in which the sword and  faggot have been conspicuous factors,  a quarrel whose martyrdoms and  massacres, intrigues and alliances,  victories and defeats make up most of  the history of Europe.* for a century  and a half, a quarrel which hasshakco  down thrones and settled the fate of  empires, is scarcely a hopeful,question  for. the political juggler to try his  hand. Political prophesying is  hazardous but the end may come a  gootl deal more, swiftly than one might,  imagine. For the school question is  lie-ginning to resolve itself ��������� into, another question, and that is whether  the Pope of Rome has any jurisdiction  in this realm of Canada, anel to that  there will be only one answer.
