Victoria Fd. and Ccnnauarht Ave,  NOTE AND COMMENT  The startling announcement made  by Hon. David Mills in the Senate  that there were rea'siins of hi};h statu  policy, which he. could not disclose,  but which, when revealed, would commend the Yukon rail wav policy of the  government lo the entire coiinininity,  places a new face on the a .fair and certainly removes it from the sphere of  justifiable criticism by tho press, m.it.l  the f u'.rfacts of the Case a re ma le clear.  Coupled with the sudden despatch*'of  Major Steele to the scene and the fact  that.at least tin oo. divisions of the  mounted police are uniler oriler*~.to,be  in readiness to proce'id at. a moments  notice to tho-Ynkon'.-it becoiues prel e,y  clear that tlie-.G-tnatliim .government  is expecting trouble froin the irrepressible Americanism of the majority of  the crowel of gold-seekers now beginning lo pour into the country. No  doubt it will come with- considerable  of a shock of sin prise I u a large number of these people that. the. United  Stales of America do not own the  whole earth, or that the Dominion'or  Canada has any rights that Ihey an*  bound to 1'i'speet. The Canada' f,ov-  oriiincnt is obvio'isly determined t^-i be  in a, position to handle the situation  adv.intngiously anil Ihey will not find  any loyal Canadian wi'slnng to hiii'ler  IhGin in their task. At. tliFsaui.* UTiTiT  it will be "���������"������������������ll to keep quite cool.  T'ii'ii; is for instaiice no occasion to  fly oil' the handle because American  soldiers have been oidered to Skagway.  Tiu-y are obviously'not going there to  attempt any invasion of British territory, but simply to police the camp,  which certainly needs borne machin.ry  for llio enforcement of law and order  badly. Nothing is to be gained by  hysterics. The people and press of  Canada may rest assured that in  Majors Steele and Walsh, and Capt.  Constantino in Yukon, the have three  ollic-rs wjiial to any emergency.  lies, which always arise when a man  thinks he has done all he ought to be  asked to do and is disinclined for further exertion. Ju.-t at this slai_;e of  the game is, (be llicKAi.n ventures to  suggest, the point at wliich the Ke.vol-  "toku Liberal Association might intervene with excellent effect. It might  with advantage be pointed out to Mr.  Bostock and ilr. Tai te. by lhat body  that, tbe present member for Yale-Cariboo was in it minority in Bevelstuke,  that this river bank (jiiestion is not one  to be trlled with or inidi'a subject of  oilicial excuses ami that if the present  Liberal government do nol, come to  time, their supporter is liable to find  hitn.-iclf at the next elections still more  decidedly left in Hi'velMoko than ilr.  Bostock was in 1S!>3. The tin'olTicial,  private and candid advice of the government on such matters as this, was  distinctly regarded as pi*,rt of the duty  of a Conservative Association under  tin- late administration, a duly, which  they thought tliey owed no less to tbe  public limn to the government. Eighteen years of office bad furnished them  wilh suificicient experience to know  that a hint from its friends goes further wilh a government than any other  kind of nianifestation of p'l'olic leeling.  There is of course uotliiuer hearing on  tliis method to bo fiuiiid in the little  two bit manuals on the ethcis of government. Ent. theie are a whole lot  of" things, which go on in practical  politics, whicli are not to be found in  lhe popular handbooks on political  science. The Hiil'AT.u considers the  placing of a little friendly pressure on  their government on this point to be a  duty which the Liberals owe to thi-.  coiiiini.iiity. Some of theni do not  seem to know" enough to adopt this  course, perhaps some of them do not  dare, pei haps even some of them do  not cart*. __' ���������  GREAT WESTERN LTD  Acquire   The Nettie L on The   Famous  Pool Group.  Arrangonienls have been concluded  by which the Great Western Ltd have  nci|iiire.l the Nettie L claim on the  well known Fool Group. LV miles from  Ferguson. The claim has a great  shewing of galena and carbonates,  rich both in gold and silver and very  similar in character to the Silver Cup  ore. In fact the Pool group is considered by miners as being on the same  lead as lhe Silver Cup group. The  promoters of the company have purchased the property for the benefit of  the company, which now possess in  the Great Western and Nettie L both  a silver and a gold proposition. Active  work will be stalled on both as soon  as the season opens. Holders of treasury stock gel the full advantage of the  new purchase.  FOUND DEADJN HIS TUNNEL  Dan Morrison Killed While Working  his Claim on the South Fork of the  Lardeau.  A telegram dated Feb. 10th was received hy the Gold Commissioner  from ilr. W. H. Viekers yesterday  morning which read as follows : "Dan  Morrison killed in tunnel-on his own  claim. Body found yesterday; been  dead about "one week. Working alf"  alone.   Hard place to get to."  On receipt of the message the Gold  Commissioner notified Dr. McLean,  as coroner, whe left for Trout Lake  City this morning. Dan Morrison  was an old man, a Highland Scotch'  man and a cook by occupation. He  was a married man and his wife lives  in Winnipeg. His claim was locatecT  near the Silver Gup.

I*"*,  The propos-eil line "from Albert  Canyon to Revelstoke by the North  Fork of the Ulecillewuet, Downie  creel; and the Columbia valley, will  open up a-di-strict of great mineral  wealth and of vast importune.; to Kev-  elstol-e. Besides this it will form the  first lii*.k on the road to Big Bend and  the north, and will greatly help out  the transportation problem to tbe  Coldstream district Very rapid development .will .undoubtedly follow the  completion of this line and a big business district, will bu open up for Kevelstoke trade and enterprise. Tbo importance of the proposed roa'J to Kevelstoke is so gre-it and so obvious that  itis particularly gratifying-to know  that the applicants mean business and  thai it is not a mere charter-monger-  ing scheme, as are too many which  have obtained charters iu this province.  The tlElL-Ll" has been informed that  the money for the road is ready and  that surveying will commence as soon  as the season permits.  The present slage of the proceeding  with regard to the river bank is that  Mr. Turner i.s not only ijuite ready to  fulfil his promises to the letter, but is  engaged in correspondence with the  Federal authorities, which up 10 date  h'iu!' been all on one side, as he cannot  get any reply to bis communications.  Mr. Bostock does not seem inclined to  put himself out very much any more  over the mat ter. His path is bent with  those kind of   insoninuiiitablo diflicnl-  ilifyiug feature of the  in' China is the fact  that it.seems to have impressed "upon  .1 !ie_Ujiitt'd_Stati."s Ihe very sufficiently  palpable f.ici"TIia(Tin tlie'.scrii'iilile for  territory in whicli the European powers are at present engaged, it is to her  own material interest to support Great  nrilain. A port or slice of territory  seized by Germany. France or Russia  means a port and ten itory closed to  all commerce except their own, while  British possessions, apart from the  self governing colonies, are as free: to  the trade of the whole worlel, as is  Gieat Britain herself. However closely Hit* Stales may stick to protection  for themselves, tbey cannot but. perceive the i'.iteresl, which tbey have,  in seeing the Hag of their great free,  trade-rival-triiimpliaiit-in-otlier���������parts  of tho world." Noanioutit of sentimental jealousy can outweigh such a solid  advantage to a commercial p.-ople.  The. fact is that Gieat Britain in its  contests with the other European  powers has been ever lighting tin*  battle of the United States as much as  her own." Great nations represent  ideas as well as material interests and  while the European powers whether  empires, kingdoms or republics stand  for despotism either of a single individual or.a bureaucracy, Great Briliiin  andthe States .-.land for constitutional  liberty. Whellici allied by treaty or  not, they are allies by nature, not  merely Iiy leason of llu: tics of blood  and binguagc, but the even more stringent bonds of similarity in the aims  and principles ol* their constil iilions,  governments, peoples. And the day  when tlie Cnited Slates, laying aside  her gi mindless jealousy, frankly tic-  knowledgi'S this fact, aful place's herself on ri'cord as to be reckot'i'd wilh  by the European powers in the event  of any coalition against England, will  markthe coiiiiiieiicetiii.nl. of a new ei-.i _  iu her history and her entrance on the. t  scene as one of the thiee great powers  of civilization. Tin* <le.-.tiny of the  world today lies in lhe hands of Great  Btilain. llUNsia and tliu United States.  As soon as the latter takes up the task  which Providence bas ii-.signed to belaud boldly allies herself on the siele  where shonalurally belongs, lhe better  for civilization, liberty anil peace.

The Saskatchewan Herald of
January 2Sth contains the following' editorial coniment, written
before the news of the Mann-Me-
kenzie deal had penetrated to
'.'The announcetxienfc that came
from Ottawa last weekCoii the
authority ot Hon. Mr. Blair, the
Minister of railways, that the Gov-
"ernment does not intend to grant
any bonuses to railway companies
reaching out towards Yukon is
. one that will secure for Mr. Blair
the support of msu of all parties
in the West; and if the men of the
east could realize the situation,
they, too, would support him. The
practice of giving to companies
bonuses of land grants greater in
value than the rjtvd when completed should be done away with."
The latest announcement.on the
authority of Mr. Blair that he has
handed over a big^'slice of the
Dominion to two enterprisiuE"
gentlemen, will entitle.him to the
united and loyal support of���Mann-
Mclienzie and our tried and disinterested friend, the Globe.
Of Rev. Father Ancel of Hay River
Mission���Prospectors Have Made
Rich Strikes on Hay and Buffalo
Rivers���Gold Exists All Through
the   Country   North   of   Edmonton'
The Prince Albert Advocate of February 1st, gives the following details
of the news of the discovery of gold
in tho vicinity of Great Slave Lake:
Great excitement was created in
town Moutlav when a report was circulated to the ell'ect that gold had
been found on the Hay and Hull'alo
lakes, north of hero in good paying
quantities. Knots of citizens Kather-
ed in different places, eagerly discussing tho situation, ahd askuie for definite information concerning the rumor
but tor a time no satisfaction in that
regard could be obtained.
The authority for the report was a
private letter addressed to His Lordship Bishop Pascal by How Father
Ancel, stationed at Hay Kiver mission
which stated that a party of prospectors had made rich finds on both Hav
and Buffalo rivers, in the yicmity of
his mission.
This authoritv is porlectly reliable,
and there is no'doubt that the theory
advanced is being realized that gold
exists-all through that couutry, as
well east as west of the mountains,
and in the foot hills, and placer mining
may be successfully carried on in almost every stream or ancient river
The Hay and Buffalo rivers How into
Great Slave Lake and aro easiest of
access from Edmonton, where the
the railroad ends.
It is worthy of note that gold has
bpen found on the Peace, Liard and
other streams east of the mountains
and the opinion based on good authority and observation,is freely expressed
tliat prospectors taking the North
West route for the Yukon will not re-
i|uiic to go half way to that point, as
gold to their heart's content *is to be
had all along the waterways used on
the journey. The North West routes
are less expensive, more safe.and more
likely to produce results than tho
Boomer's pass route on the coast.
An.English lawyer has been
suing.a newspaper for libel because it always left his name out
in reporting lawsuits with which
he was connected. Most people
sue newspapers because they get
their names in. It is hard to please
everybody, remarks the Ottawa
Fort Saskatchewan settlers are complaining bitterly of the withdrawal of
the usual Mounted Police patrols from
��that district. The withdrawal is
necessary consequent upon the removal
of nearly all the men to the Yukon.
Robberies of grain aud hay are already
reported.      _ .. . 	
L'onr.st Canailicn is the title of a
new French paper published at Edmonton. It is well edited and it is
platform sound. There is ample room
��� tor such a paper among the French
speaking people in the north, and The
Herald gladly welcomes the latest
arrival in the journalistic field.
T. TV. Chalmers, who is in charge of
the road making party sent out bv the
Territorial government, returned to
Edmonton last Wednesday. The toad
will be open as far as Swann river by
February 20th. By going dowii the
Swan river to Slave' Lake, a through
road for bob sleighs is open to Fort
St. John.
An Ottawa despatch announces that
The D each man Yukon Mining and
Trading Co. seeks incorporation under
the Dominion statute. Among the
promoters are A. F. Deachman, J. T.
MacLaren and H. Wilson. The head
office of the company will be located
in South Edmonton and their mining
explorations and operation-! will be
carried on extensively throughout the
Peace ank Yukon river valleys.
There are some f.irmeis in the district surrounding Sault I'ecoIIet, a
station a short distance out of -Montreal, on the Xorth Shore line of the C.
P.R., who are looking for the men who
own a recent, shipment of clogs which
passed thiough that place for the
Klondyke. While lying on a siding,
1* of the dogs broke out ot the car and
could not be captured before they bail
Visited a farm yard near by and killed
eight pigs, four sheep and :_*) hens.
Tlie loss to the farmers is estimated at
SHO. The animals killed were parti v
devoured bv the canine-* lnjfore thev

all but two are now running wild.
Mr. DougUs.sunerintendent of Banff
National Park, lias written to Mr.
McCreary, immigration commissioner,
to the effect that the three buffalo now
at the park, and which were shipped
out from Texas last year, are thriving
splendidly. A n enclosure of It'/' acres
has been made for the reception of the
Silver Heights animals. Thrccrjuarteis
of this area is as level as the prairie,
the balance is mountain. It stretches
for half a mile along the railway track
so that travellers may have an excellent view of these unique animals.
Three small creeks run through the
buffalo grounds and there is good
pasture there. Mr. McCreary will
ship tbe buffalo to the park as soon as
they have dropped their eal ves. It is
possible that two of the Silver Heights
animals mav remain here as a gift to
tbe city. ��� WinnipegFree Press.
Something About the Fast Ones of the
White Star Line
The new Oceanic, now building by
Messrs. Harland and Wolff for the
White Star line, will, no doubt, embody some new ideas. But if for nothing else she will be remarkable for her
exceptional size. This vessel will be
by several thousand tons larger than
any other steamship either built or
budding. She will be 701 feet in extreme le'iigth 113 feet longer than the
Great Eastern) and her tonnage will
exceed 17,01)0 tons.
But remarkable as may be the vessel
above named, the sister ships Britannic and Germanic are probably the
two most successful ships ever built.
When the late Mr. II. XV. Vanderbilt
was asked whv he. possessing such
great wealth, did not employ ills own
steam yacht, he replied that the Britannic and Germanic were gro-1
enough- yachts for him, and very
faithfully did he act up to his conviction, for until the year before his
death, in lSS-, he regularly crossed
once a year by the White Star line,
and by the steamers Britannic or
Germanic if he could arrange it.
The Britannic commenced running
iu the Liverpool and Xew JYork service of the White Star line in 1.S74,
and the Germanic in 1S7~. The latter,
re-engined and re-boilered in IS!)**, and
with passenger quarters re-modelled
on the plan of the Teutonic and Majestic, has gained both in speed and
popularity. The former continues to
perform her work with tbe same regit*
her.' On lier last voyage, which ended
with her arrival in the- .Mersey, after a
passage which occupied only seven
days and eight hours, despite heavv
weather, she completed her i")0l.h
round voyage to and from Xew York-
and her 500th passage across the
Atlantic. This means that she has
traveled a distance of 200 times G.200
nautical miles, or more than 1,750.00')
statute miles without a renewal of
engines or boilers, a performance
doubtless without parallel in the history of steam navigation. She has
earned 57,10J saloon oassengers, and
1C~,"U0 steei.igo passengers: under
steam 11 ".(WO hours, and 100.SOO hours
under weigh. She has consumed r\'i,-
0*X) tons of coal, and her engines have
made a~0.000.000 revolutions. So that
the Britannic has well-done her part,
in abridging distance and promoting
the civilization and happiness of the
peoples on both sides of the Atlantic;
and it is a matter for sincere regret
that Sir Edward Harland was not
spared to witness the excellent work
which has continued to be achieved by
this admirable example nf his skill as
a ship designer and  builder.

Every woman should realize that her
health is like a bank account. At the outset she has so much deposited to her credit
in the hank of health. If she draws out
more than she ptitii iu she will soon overdraw her account. An over-dmwn account
in the bank of health means one of two
things, a life of hopeless suffering or an
early death.
The woman who neglects her health in a
womanly way i.s making big drafts on her
account with the bank of health and will
sii'.,-.i be a physical bankrupt. Disorders of
thi- description wreck a woman's general
health quicker than anything else in lhe
world. Tliey soon transform a healthy,
happy, amiable woman into a weak, sickly,
fretful and despondent invalid. They utterly unfit a woman for wifehood or motherhood. For all disorders of this nature Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the best
of all medicines. It acts directly on the'
delicate and iiupoitanl oigaus concerned
in maternity, giving them health, strength,
vigor and elasticity. Il relieves pain,
allays inflammation, checks debilitating
drains, aud quickly subdues all other symptoms. Tl at once stops the dragging- pains
and sinking spells, the nervousness*, the
digestive disturbances and other complications that arise from the same cause. Taken
during the months of expectant maternity,
it banishes the usual discomforts aiid
makes baby's advent easy and almost painless. -It insures the new-comer's health
and a plentiful supply of nourishment.
Thousands of women have testified to its
marvelous merits. An houe-.t dealer will
not suggetl an infeiior substitute for the
sake of extra profit.

Although withdiawing her condition re-  earding the opening of Tiilietiinaii,  says the Times: ."Tlio fuel of such  withdrawal is of course consistent  with the adoption of entirely dilfeicnt  policies upon out part. It might be  on one hand an unworthy, and humiliating surrender by it -statesman, who  havinu proimilgiifed a great pol icy and  defended it with brave wordshad then  run away from it on the llrst show of  the opposition it was certain to  provoke. On the other bund il may  be a judicious example of the old and  tried diplomatic method of adding in  the lirst instance, to the terms of a  bargain some particular object which  it was not really desired or expected  to attain and afterwards sacrificing  this supeillous article in order lo  secure the real end in view. But while  it is logically compatible with I'ilhor  of these alternatives we are cntilled  lo.assuuie that the second policy is  that which is being followed by Loid  Salisbury."  "On tliis assumption the withdrawal  of the condition is no more than a  graceful concr.*.jion effected on the  principle of "dti.ii/ des.'' the. gift on  onr part heii.g the privilege of access  to a not especially desirable pot t. and  lIil* condition wo" receive the acceptance of the more" essential terms of  oiiroitiT.

THAT CHINESE LOAN  London, Fob.  5.���������Russia and Germany are now bidding for the Chinese  loan.   The Times of yesterday referr-1  ing to the matter says: "It is of course  possible that the story is not without  foundation.    There is not much doubt  that Russia can procure the money if  she can   induce China to enter more  deeply into her   books.   She   is   well  versed in the habits of Chinese officials     and     has      almost     an  intuitive perception of the motives determining their acts.    It is  quite  jiossible  that the timelv appeals to these might  result in somesuchdiplomatic triumph  as is rumored in St. Petersburg.    If so  our position is clear.     We are limited  to our trcatv rights, and  both partiec  of the State", with ihe whole country  at their hack, are pledged to enforce  them upon that  subject.

"Here's the ro.nl. Siifeaer has
found it. Turn sharp tu the ri_*ht,
when you come up out of the slough
and then keep ilose behind me. Its
as black as the inside of a black cow
in these eiu-seil pines, but the old fellow will inisi: tl.e trail out." It was a
black dark night and from where I sat
on Sneezer's broad back under the
pines 1 could see nothing, but my remarks into space were speedily followed by the humping and banging of the
patrol wagon as it. splashed intn the
slough and aidi'd by some vigorous
Anglo-Saxon from lhe teamster
emerged safely behind me. I w.is al
that 1 erioil a sergeant of N. ~,V.
Mounted police, a 1 nrps, which iu my
lime did not used to throw nn more
swagger than llie law entitled it and
was compatible with decent self-
respect, They do say. now I H.it its
Jubilee detachment rode behind General 'Bobs' at the head of the whole
British army at. Aldershot. that it
takes an entire barrack septan; to ac-
I'omnmiliile ono man. However iny
time was in the old days before lhe
force was ijiiiie such a gentleman's job
as it has since got to be, and I was out.
in charge of a patrol party in the wild
country north of the Saskatchewan
liver. Half breed and Indian runners
were, known to be going round among
the reserves and halfbi-eed settlements,
and I was ordered to lind out all 1
could about their movements, which 1
knew very well was likely to be
precious little. We bad been delayed
at a place called I*.iidi*rhy on the government telegraph lino where an
operator was stationed and where. 1
had waited till late in Hie morning to
ri'seive an answer to a telegram, which
I sent tn headquarters. It was the
mouth of October, the evenings weie
beginning to draw in, there was no
moon and night fall found us several
miles Ii-rnii our destination in the
black d.-irkuess of a long stretch of
pine woods.
However we made the best time we
could. 1 kept ahead and let old
Sneezer smell out the trail as lie jogged
along, lie was as sure-footed as a
gnat, ami bail 11.010 sense than a good
many men. Behind the patrol wagon
c.-iii.e lumbering along, the pole swaying cruelly too and fro against llie
hoises shoulders, as lhe wheels rose
and sank in lhe ruts. \\ Iiich cnnsl.il 11'ed
the (rail, while creation itself seemed
almost to protest against the bang i.ml
claller with which our onward- progress, tilled the quiet solitudes of the
wilderness. Behind the wagon the
two mounted men of the patrol bumn-
eel aloi.g. anil I could feel them in
every hum* cueing me fm- not ramping at. I he hist creek.
But 1 wanted to get nu as I knew
that a welioine awa'ted me at the
next reserve, where a man, with whom
I had been "recruits" some ten years
hefnre, had got a job as farm in-
-ti-iicrni-. Tom Knglish iu fact, was
lhe Hrst of my hatch of reei iiils I had
met when 1 joined. We were nil

mnrri'.'d life without le.ive in thefon''.
with Hit* htisb.ind sleeping every night
iu bnriacks. except when he could get

Tom decided to buy out, which In* .lid
or lather the Prince' ivlw.iieVs I-land

coeding to utilize the family pull up
gelling Tom a job on tho Indian Department, under *-ti ict conditions that

hall bleed wife, f did once; know a

I t lungs nl" that kind in their enthusiasm
but Tom's people weie not  appaienlly

insli-iu (ni- nu the Ilea ver Lake lesei-v".
without   a    white   man   within   foil.y
miles  of  him, 11 semi-oc casicmal   mail,
wbeii'*ve-r the Indian   agent  over  him
or .1 police, patrol happened  along, and
nothing   to   do   but  contend with bis
vicious, cunning, childish   charges .-mil
j if  I here is a more (.'oil forsaken job 011
enrlh I don't know it.
Old Sneezer wa.sjoggiiigaloiig.mil I
win, thinking iiver these thing- when a
rise in the road took us clear of the
of the trees and away up on a hill to
the right I caught sight of a flame,
which looked like a camp Iiie. 1
thought no more ol* it nt the lime,
though I did not know of any trail in
that, direction and a few mure miles of
humping and clattering along brought,
us to lhe reserve. Tom came out to
meet us with an ell'usive welcome.
The further fiom civilization the nioie
unbounded i.s hospitality. I have seen
fellows, baching it on the plains spend
three or four huurs rooking lirst one
dinner and then another, some of them
for men they had never seen before in
their lives- But when an old moulded
pnlit ennui runs up against a man who
belonged to bis particular batch of
reeiiiits, the sit nation demands extraordinary exertions. 1 don't know bow
il, is. A man may have been no pai-
liciilai- friend of your.-., bin. if he made
thai lung month's trip iu the old days
np lhe. Missouri and aci-i'ss the plains
I o Cypress t here is nl ways a suit spot
in vour heart I'm- him.
So Tom diel himself proud and started his wife baking bannocks ami frying
beefsteaks while he .shewed us where
to put our horses and helped the boys
pilch Iheir tent by llu; house. As for
nie I was In sleep in his best bed or die
in my tracks and so we all sat down to
a good sipiare in Tom's big log shack
with its single 1 nnm dnwust.-iiis, kil-
1 hen. dining room and pallor cumin 1 led.
