so entirely spontaneous. It was so

business men,who had framed it, were

was also :i very spontaneous desire on

resolutionr presented were scarcely

in dis-pariieremc.il of the Waverley

The Waverley has in fact received ex-

mns. But tlie operations of the pro-
motors of the companies which have

be open lo criticism, much more.scath-
iiij-r than anything the 11____i".*iT.d has

positively without excuse. Even if

false, at the time when they were using

benefits which this district is deriving
from the capital spent in it by the
Waverley Co., but every sensible man
knows that these benefits sire, dearly
purchased ill the cost of the inevitable
reaction against the couutry, in whicli
the absurd hopes held oul to investors
by reports of this inscription in order
to boom up stock are inevitably destined to result. The Hicuai.u believes
that the Waverley has shewn up very

to be hoped that under Mr. Graham's
uiiinagcini'iit it will further develop into a paying mine, and that the expenditure of the company will he solely

instance of the result of a big English
mining company operating in North

can assure the anxious Ijiberals of

meeting that this unknown genius

appears that "outside* the hall there
was a big crowd, which shouted itself
hoarse' in honor of the man. who had

Agenta :  RAM LALTEA'S  THE ROW IN QUEBEC  From Tho Calgary Horald.  The ��������� .eruption   caused    by  the  publication of the Langelier interview ih Quebec is still the chief  topic of interest in political circles.  To judge by the way many of the  Liberal organs have ignored it, the  interview has apparently not yet  caught    their    eye,   while   those  which    have    noticed    it    have  studiously endeavored to minimize  its i.sighincanee.   ,��������� Mr.   Langelier  makes uo secret of his reasous for  criticizing   his   old  friends.     He  claims'to hold abetter in which  Premier Laurier promised him the  Lieutenant      Governorship       of  Quebec, now held by Sir Adolphe  Chapleau.     He  indignantly  protests against tne rumored alliance  between' the   Liberal   leaders iri  Quebec and Lieutenant Governor  Chapleau.      He   repudiates    Mr.  Tarte and regrets   his inordinate  influence    over ���������   some      of    his  colleagues in the cabinet, andiri  conclusion he   bitterly complains  of the favors SiivWilfrid Laurier  has' bestowed   on   renegade  Con  servatives  at   the    expense   and  humiliation of  old  time Liberals  who   fought   the   battles   of   the  party in the long cool shade- of  adversity and naturally expected  "to   see   their    reward   when   the  sweets of oflice were won.   One of  the!    most    significant    opinions  imblished   on the  quarrel   conies  irom    Mr.   Calixte   Leboeuf,   ex-  president of  the   Club  National.  "Mr.   Tarte," he   said,  "i.s   not a  Liberal.   He was even ashamed to  say so under oath.   He refused to  .proclaim himself a Liberal and my  friends are delighted at"itr~"He~is  not    the    stuff   of    which   true  Liberals are made.  I had no doubt  whatever that he .would make a  compact with the most dangerous  men in Canadian political  life in  order to carry through his scheme,  with the aid, of course, of all the  cliques    which   have   caused   the  ruin of the several  governments,  both at Quebec and Ottawa. Birda  nf a feather," added Mr. Leboeuf,  "flock    together.      Tbe   attitude  taken by our friend and one of our  federal leaders, Francois-Langelier  will certainly be, and is certainly  approved of, by nine-tenths of the  Liberals in this couutry.   We the  old     time    Liberals*,    who    have  fought  for   this party during  .'30  years, who have built it up stone  upon stone, and who have given  our life,   our- force,   and   all our  intelligence,  today, when we are  in power, are put out of doors, and  those who arrive iu  the partv at  the last moment make fun of us  and literally spit in our face*-.   We  are in  power at Ottawa since 18  months, and I can say to you that  the position is such there that we,  the true Liberals, never go there.  We   remain    at    home   awaiting  events."  Le Soleil. the chief Liberal newspaper at Quebec, has also .joined  the anti-Tarte cru=ade and is  vigorously backing up the position  taken by Mr. Langelier. Looking  at the dispute without party prejudice. The Herald sees reason to  differ with the Montreal Gazette,  which has taken the strange  ground���������in a Conservative paper  of the best standard���������of seeming  to support Tarte against his  Rssailants. The Gazette admits  Tarte's influence to lie evil, but  thinks his opponents have a poor  case which is doomed to failure.  We venture to believe that a  glance beneath the froth and scum  of this family quarrel among tne  Liberals, would reveal a situation  much more far reaching in its  details than outsiders realize.  Evidently a determined effort is  being made by a certain section of  both parties���������Conservatives^ and  Liberals to bring about a coalition.  There are men on both sides like  Chapleau, Taite. Blair, Haggart,  Montague, Clark Wallace and  others the chief item of whose  political faith is���������not any broad  E & COMPANY  Agents :  Victoria Powder Cc  question    of  public   or   national  policy���������but  the   acquisition   and  maintenance of power.    Oflice is  their goal, and many of them care  not an iota on what principles or  policy they have   to   trample to  secure that great and glorious end.  With these men public office is n il  a public trust, but a pri\ ate snap.  Tarte evidently  foresees that   in  the face of the growing opposition  from therespecttiblc portion of the  Liberals he cannot long retain liis  position    and    influence  without  contracting some new alliance. On  the other hand some of the professional   statesmen who   largely  caused the downfall of the Conservative party are anxious at any  cost and under any conditions to  get back into ollice.    Mr.   Tarte.  thus sees a glorious opportunity  co strengthen himself,    lu some of  the politician's we have named he  would iiud   far   more    congenial  colleagues thau in such unbending  Liberal*-   as   M.   C.  Cameron, Sir  Henry Joli Lotbiniere  and others  of the old school, men who staud  high in the respect of the country  and who should scorn to stoop to  the peculiar  methods  so clear to  the heart of the Tarte tribe.    A  possible coalition betweeu two unsavory sectious of the  tivo great  parties is repugnant  to the   best  public opinion of the country and  would be disastrous to Canada.   It  should be opposed by the better  elements of both parties   to   the  last ditch.  The Toronto World has an  editorial dealing with the bellicose  utterances of the different  American newspapers on the  Paciiic coast as against Canada  and its administration of the  Klondike regions and says that  the Canadian government must be  prepared for trouble in the spring.  FERGUSON  The Centre   of the   Lardeau  Mines  The Manitoba school question  may soon become a live issue  again. It is said on the return of  the Archbishop of. Montreal a.  council of the Canadian Catholic  bishops will be held to deal with  t.lie Pope's instructions regarding  the settlement of the school  question. All good citizens will  regret to see the matter brought  up again.  Tne Pioneer  A GREAT PROJECT  From tho Calgary Herald.  From Montreal to Calgary by  steamboat is a suggestion of somewhat startling novelty. Yet to  accomplish this is one of lhe  objects of a company now seeking  federal incorporation. The name  of the syndicate is the Lake  Superior and Rocky Mountains  Navigation Company aud its chief  object is to construct and operate  a navigable waterway from  Thunder Bay, on Lake Superior, to  Calgary and Edmonton. The  route to be followed is along Rainy  River, Lake of the Woods,  Rousseau and Red Rivers, Assiniboine River, Lakes Manitoba and  Winnipegosis and along the  Saskatchewan and Bow Rivers to  Calgary aud tlie north branch of  the Saskatchewan to Edmonton.  Itis the intention of thecompany  to dredge and otherwise improve  these watercourses and Jto create  such connecting links as may be  found necessary so as to complete  throughout tbe entire distance a  navigable channel of ac least nix  feet in depth. The company al.so  announces ils intontion of using  water from its canal i'or irrigation  purposes and for generating  hydraulic and other powers. The  project is undoubtedly gigantic in  conception and "f carried out  mean not only millions of dollars  spent in the North West in construction, but millions more saved  to the people in transportation  charges. The enormity of the  scheme, however, is no reaion why  it should be scouted as crazy or  impracticable. Greater schemes  than this have been laughed at at  their inception but have nevertheless proved successful, fabulous  capital would be required- and it  may be many years before we see  the Lake Superior and Rocky-  Mountains Navigation Company  landing tiiassengers and height at  Calgary, but who shall say the  thing is impossible? This is an  age of strange projects and he  would be a sceptic of the sceptics  who," looking at the map, would  condemn at first sight a proposition to connect Montreal and  Calgary by navigable water. If  Canada can be and has been  crossed by canoe, why not, with  the aid of capital, by steamer?  The Boston Globe reminds Mr.  Mulock that the proper place to  advertise is in tlie newspapers,  and not on the face of postal card.*,  and the Free Press very properly  says that to permit the use of  postal cards as a medium of  ordinary commercial advertising  is unbecoming the dignity uf the  Post Oflice Department, and unbecoming the service ir wa= established to perform. If the Postmaster General's colleagues would  remind him of this fact they  would be doing him a kindness.  MPER1A_L 8/\N^  oa;nada.

YUKON VIA STEAMER  INTERVIEW WITH   PRESIDENT  BREWER  Three Steamboats to P'y Between  Athabasca Landing: and*Peel River-  Twenty Days Frcm Chicago to the  .Gold Fields.  From our own Correspondent.  Calgary, Dec 24.  Among the numerous enterprising  capitalists who have recently visited  Alberta in connection with Yukon  matters is Mr. J. A. Brewer, president  of the Alaska Mining and Trading Co.  "We are now bui.dir.g." Mr. Brewer  said to The Herald, '-three steamers  which will be ready by the tiin*" navigation opens up on the Mackenzie, All  tbe steamers will bebuiltat Athabaska  Landing and the machinery shipped  up from Chicago. Two will he regular  river steamers with paddle wheels and  the other a stern wlieel<*r. 120 feet long.  The first boat will run from the L-ind-  -ing to Grand Kanids, the. second from  McMurray to Fort Smith, and the  third from Fort Smith to the limit of  navigation on Peel river, whicli flows  into the Mackenzie near its mouth.  .From Grand Rapids to McMurray we  Are arranging to portage passengers  and freight.  "We propose to blast out the rocks  in some of tbe worst rapids and otherwise improve the navigation."  _ _^H_q_A'_long_dp.^������ou___e"P1~t^fo_ta-__L_L  for thn trip from Chicago?" The  Herald asked.  ������������������We can put passengers through  from Chicago to a point 100 miles up  the Peel river in 20 or 21 days, and do  it easily," said Mr. Brewer. "Our line  will start .from Edmonton and we  shall carry freight from_ there for 20  cents a pound for the trip.  "What are your passenger rates?"  We propose"to charge 10 cents per  mile, or something over .*"2~9 tor the  trip, including meals en route. * We  oxpect to use several house boats .md  liai'ges, which will be tugged by the  steamers. We are making provision  also for .shipnir'ig horses. From the  end of our routp. through a pass into  the Yukon valley, will he about 100  miles.  " Have vou anv knowledge as to  gold on the Peel ? "  " Yes. we have. A Chicago man  named Robinson, came from there this  fall with "2.~,000, which he took out of  n small stream running into the Peel.  He left Chicago a year before with only  SIC in his pocket. Since his return he  has been engaged in working up a  machine for taking gold out of the  beds of streams.*'  "Alt' you getting a Dominion charter. Mr. Brewer?"  Yes; we have already applied for it,  Our Canadian directors are John A.  McDougall, Frank Oliver, M.P.. and  AV. Short, of Edmonton. Mr. Ches-  nown and myself will be the directors  ��������� on the other side. Our capital is $100,-  000 and we are preparing for the certainty of a tremendous rush over this  route, which is known in the States  as the "back door route." We think  it. will be proved the quickest and  cheapest route of all."  Mr. Brewer is a quiet, shrewd and  able business man, and looks and talks  as thongh the undei taking would be  an undoubted success.

BISON FOR BANFF PARK  Lord Strathconna's Herd of Seventeen  Animals Presented to the Dominion  Government.  The buffaloes on Lord Str.-ithcona's  farm at Silver Heights hai:e been presented to the Dominion Government  nud will be sent to the National- Park  at Banff. The herd numbers 17 animals, thirteen pure bred and four  crosses. This herd was first established at "The Heights" in 1800 by the late  Hon. James McKay, the famous hunter, trader and courier,- who kept a  trading post tit Deer - Lodge. He  brought the lirst pair from the Saskatchewan and afterwards obtained  others, and had a considerable herd at  the time of his death.  The present, herd on the farm of  Lord Sbrathcona (Sir Donald A.Smith)i  was begun in 1SS7, with three animals,  a pure bred bull and cow and a halt  bred cow. The following year there  was an increase of two, but owing to  the death of the head of the herd there  was no further increase until 181)0. In  the latter year, there was another increase of two, and since then the herd  has gradually grown to the number  already stilted. ' During the past three  or four years several animals died from  one cause or another, from impaired  vigor of constitution, caused partly by  the inbreeding, but probably due in  a greater extent to being too closely  confined in the original field, specially fenced for them, which, being  none too large for tbe original three  animals, was absurdly to small when  their numbers began to increase,  as'they could not get grass enough to  more than keep them.alive during the  summer and fall, without laying in  fat and flesh to sustain them through  the winter. For the last three years  tliey have had ample range and there  hasbeen no deaths, and they have  done much better in every way. The  attempts'at cross breeding with domestic cattle-have-been-mosfc--6uccess-  ful.  The buffaloes at Silver Heights have  been a great attraction both for citizens and for visitors and their removal  to the National Park will he much  regretted, although ii is a pleasure to  know that in the park they will be  returned to their wild state ' and will  probably be the means of again restoring to their uninhabited regions a  sufficient number of their species to  be of public value, while at the same  time-serving as objects of curiosity to  tourists. The leader of the herd is a  majestic fellow, a worthy representative of his once numerous race.  The animals will he shipped to Banff  in about a week.  A despatch from Dallas.

I think they, have acloel wisely,: in the
interests pf the public, in placing a
totally indf'peiident gentleman in that
important position. 1 also would urge
on all true conservatives to see that
their names arc put on the voters' list
without further delay on their part.

The Burning of the Nakusp.
Very.little can be added to the* ri-
port of the total'loss of the. "N'akusp by-
fire, whicli appeared in our last issue.
The fire is stated to have startc:rl in the
pantry <::irly in the morning of Friday
last. Owing to the regulation in foree
on the steamers of tbe line, which
s-hnts down the elynainei.s at 0 p. tn.,
lh(:ie were no ligiits on hoard-al the
time, which rendered it very difficult
to locate the. fire and to add to the e'il-
fictilfii!s of the situation the: hose: was
frozen. - The boat burned like: a. ni-ilch
box and it wns .vtilb groat dilTic-iilty
thiit everybody on hoard was. got safely oft to shore.
The clinrg". of assault preferred
against Mr. Ii. A. I'rown of the- Union
by a man. whom be ejected from the
hotel, c.-iiiie: up this morning iind was
adjourned till I-'j-iday.
