The Hl-RALl" considers that the ctl'orts  of the Grits ate simply directed to  capture the official machinery of the,  province for Dominion political (imposes and to add. British .Columbia to  .the long train of servile provincial governments' novv" trailing behind Air.  LaiirierV triumphal chariot. This  st-beiiie we intend to oppose regardless  of every other consideration. Air.  Turner's government may not he an  ideal one. but it is a British Columbia,  ono and would bo very ill .exchanged  for a Grit administration, elancing to  the jei ks of the Ol taw a wire-puller".  As to the absurdity ol introducing  into provincial politics the p:irly names  and lines of Dominion .-ilTairs the Mlilt-  Al.l" has nothing to take back of any-  lliing it bas said. It is too palpable to  lequiii* demonstration as We  out. lo���������the Mail, when, that heiuvWiV  tnne which the man who pays it*p?pcr  called, it was leebly encleavoriiig to  argue that it would be a good thing to  see the next provincial election fought  on Dominion lines'. At the -same time  politics are no.tall":iir.sof reason or philosophy but are of a stiicily  nature and there is no use engaging in  them as one that beateth the air. However ab'stud it may be, it is the liKlt-  Ai-l"'-" conviction that tbo next provincial election will as a matter of fact be  conducted on the lines of lhe two great  parties in the Dominion, Not strictly  pt' that there vvill not be plenty  of Conservatives who vvill vntiyigiinst  the government and plenty e.f Liji-'tals  who will vote for it, but in lhe sense  that the main issue vvill not In: between  the government and opposition as  heretofore in this province.but between  the Liberals ami Conservatives. In no  province biive^,the--e lines ever been  very strictly drawn, it being rather  the rule under the late Conservative  regime al Ottawa, that the provincial  administrations should eal! themselves,  Liberal, and weoe returned as Liberal  again and again by pi-e)v"mcr.=, which  could be itbst.ti;tely di'pcndc-el upon to  give a 1 irge majority of their Dominion ini" libers to the Pein-ei'V.itive   bid**  of the II use. But the llK~i.vr.n is  convinced that, in Ibis limited sense  lhe lines of party vvili be drawn -it, lhe  next provincial eleel ions,pei haps more  or less seel elly. but still ili.ivvn. Il i.s  lenionstrabty iibsir.-l. it is Inul to see  exactly is to be gained by ii fin-  Hie province, though there is no ditli-  cnlly in seeing the advantages, which  vvill .ic-c i:i.' to the Dominion p trty.  which comes out on top. bul il is going  to beso anil lhe Il.ou.vr.l" inieiuls In  shape its e-oiir-e* acte-rilingly.

JAN.  1S08.  OthlLVIES OPINIONS  -;'       Agent3:  RAM LALTEA'S  C. B. HUME & COMPANY  Agents :  Victoria Powder Co.  A receiit i-jsue.of the Globe con-  tains,.'the' ."report of a:��������� lecture  delivered-in Toronto by Mr.  Willian--.-.Ogilvie,-- D. L. S., on  roi^tes'tb the Yukon, and western  readers of the Globe were not a  little surprised" to learn that Mr.  Ogilvie ..attempted to pooh-pooh  the"-. Calgary-Edmonton routes by  suggesting that the gald of the  Klondike would! be exhausted  .before they could be made available. 61r. Ogilvie was the one man  who was supposed to be well  acquainted with the northern  country and the means of getting  there and the recent discoveries of  gold in the Yukon have caused  many people' lo study Mr.  Ogilvie's report on the subject.  Unfortunately for   Mr.   Ogilvie  and his latest opinion*-, hislleport  on the Peace river and tributaries  in.1891 is still extant and is quoted  atvmerciless:length m the editorial  columns of the Edmonton Bulletin  of-   Monday    last,    wherein   Jlr.  Ogilvie stands  convicted, on  his  own confession of misrepresenting  the Alberta route for some purpose  best known fo himself.   In that  report, -written at a   time   when  there was uo question of booming  tue"Tes!in Lake   railway project  for  the  purpose of  obtaining   a  Gpvernmentrsubsidy,   Mr. Ogilvie  ehthusia.tically describes in detail  the easy' and inexpensive manner  in which the arctic circle could be  reached from Ottawa via Calgary  and   "Edmonton.������   "We will presume," says the Mr. Ogilvie of 1891,  "that we are in Ottawa and*wish  "tovisirtheland^of the midnight  sun.'. Four day"? from Ottawa via  the C. P. It. we arrive at Calgary.  One  day from Calgary we arrive  atKdmpnton'.   Three or four days  brings us to the'Athabasca Laud-;  inj?.'   By-timing ourselves to reach'  the Landing about the first day.~  ofJune-we will' likely catch   the  steamer Athabasca and go  down  to Grand/Rapids on her.   Three or  four days from   Grand Rapids to  McMurray, aud if we are  fortun-  afe enough to catch  the steamer  - Grahame there we vvill reach Chip-  ewyan in a day.    Another day to  * Smith's   Landing aud another to  Smith-    If we meet the   Wrigley  at Smith, and she generally starts  for McPherson   about   llie    last  . "lays in June or the first days* in  i"July, we will reach McPbersoi  seven of eigh t day?.   ���������        ���������   During the whole of ihe journey  we  are likely to   experience   as   pleasant-weather as if we had remain-  ;-ed in Ottawa,   and perhaps   plea-  '-,"sinter.    ...    I cannot   specify  -the cost of such a trip,  but would  place the maximum at about three  hundred- U.'.ttv.:."  .Tr^.'elling  conditions   nre    fur  better  now than when  the   foregoing  extract   was written,   and  niany. persons have   vei Hied    by  ' actual    experience     the      truth  ot     Mr.     Ogilvie's     statements.  The       extracts     from       Doctor  Macdonald's  diary   published   in  yesterday's Herald  shows  that  that,-   gentleman's     party     left  Chipewyan   on   the  afternoon of  August 29th, and notwithstanding  very unfavorable  weather,  head  winds     and     several     portages  reached    Smith     in    safety   on  September 4th, and wrote home  from Fort Simpson on September  l'tb. * Furthermore, they expected  to5'have  no trouble   in reaching  Fort McPherson   on   Pee!  River  beforewinter notwithstanding the  fact y that   they  did   not   leaye  Edmonton till about the middle of  August.      S.    X.  Malterner   has  made the  trip  outlined   bv  Mr.  Ogilvie alone in a canoe in 37 days,  including several days delay���������and  two   ladies,   Mrs.   Colclengh  and  Miss Taylor, have made the_ same  journey'.-more than once without  difficulty.  The Herald is'1 glad to assist in  jiointingbut the feasibility of the  Mackenzie route on Mr. Ogilvie's  own evidence and willingly lends  a hand to do so. The truth of Mr.  Ogilvio's earlier report has been  established beyond a doubt, and  no amount of misrepresentation  by that gentleman, the Globe  newspaper or any other interested  parties can controvert well  established lacts. The Calgary-  Edmonton route has como to stay  and fresh evidence of its feasibility is daily arriving. As lon{~ as  encouraging reports are being  received from those who havo  travelled over it. and as long as  thousands of others arc making  ready to start. Alberta can afford  to overlook Mr. Ogilvie's Midden  change of view. Hut he has lost  caste among the tribes of tho  West.  SAD  DEATH  Of Mrs. Morris, one of Canmore's Most  Respected Inhabitants.  Canmoki", December MO.���������Quite a  gloom hns been cast ever the town of  Uanmore, owing to the death on Sun-  clay Iusr, at iin curly age*, of Mrs. Morris, wife of .lames Morris, superintendent of the Ciinniore mines. During  her residence in Caninore, Mrs. Morris hud lii.-iele ii host of friends, everyone of whom deeply sympathises with  her bereaved husband anil brothers.  .She wns a good wile and mother and  will be* deeply regretted hy' nil who  knew her. Tlie people of Caninore  feel deeply Ihe s.-id n Miction which  has befallen her family.  -r-T  FERGUSON  The Centre   of the   Lardeau   Mines  Tlie  Pioneer-  Stopes  IMPERIAL FEDERA TION  It vvouid seem as if the dreams  of Imperial   Federation   vvill   not  stand the test of practical politic-.  Mr. ChRiuberlaiu.bas declared that  ho would not touch with a tougs  anything bub absolute free trade  throughout the empire.   This the  Canadian premier refused, because  it involved a complete change in  the   mode    of    collecting    taxes  together with a  violent disturbance    ot    industrial    conditions.  Lord   Rosebery   has   pronounced  against   Mr.   Oha"mbnrlain's   Zoll-  verliu   "scheme    of     free   'trade  throughout the empire, as it vvouid  undoubtedly lead to a disastrous  "commercial"     war      with     other  nations, inasmuch as   it involves  preferential   duties    ou    e-lonial  products. , The London Times says  that    a  candid    i-lview    of    the  situation removes the .whole proposal from  the sphere of practical  politics.   The colonies have got to  be satisfied as well as the mother  country.    Suppose in the case of  Cauada, that it were seriously proposed    to    make-  the    Canadian  market absolutely free to British  manufacturers,    does    the    most  ardent     Imperial    l'ederationist  suppose that any political  party-  would   risk   it'-    life    on   such   it  venture.-'      Protection   is   a   vital  principle of Conservatism, and has  already been found necessary for  its existence even by the Liberal  we will reach McPherson in  government.      "That,"   says   the  Times, "any British minister could  seriously propose as a business  transaction to give a preference  on C.?r>,(X)0,000 worth of trade for  the sake of obtaining a preference  on .CI 1,000,000 worth is a, proposition which only nepds to be  stated to refute itself." As Mr.  Edward Blake said at the National  Club there does not seem to be a  gleam of light.  Notwithstanding these plain  expressions of opinion from such  quarters, it is not uncommon to  read in some ot our party papei*3  of the miraculous conversions of  British opinions in favour of the  scheme of preferential duties.
