VnrroKlA, Feb. 3.-[Special to the  Kossland jMiner.l���������It' is* stated upon  lhe very bust authority that the oppositionists are iixpeiienciii;*. very great  .lifliculty in the work of (ii^.-itiization  foe the approaching provincial elections. So serious is the situation, indeed, thnt it is now very piobleinatibal  whether I*". V. Botltvell and E. P.  Davis will enter the politic.il arena as  candidate's in the* interests of the opposition party.  It is well known that both Bod well  and Davis stipulated that nothing  short of cabinet positions would he  considered sufficient to gain their consent to actually assist in the* overthrow  of Mr. Turner's administration. Tliis  promise*) was given by tho-ic* having  whatever authority is available for  enteiiiig into such an agreement.  Seinlin. the venerable leader ot' the  opposition, paid a special visit tn A7ic-  tctria nt the l-pcpiest of |prominent local  Liberat politicians feir the express  purpose of "fixing things" with ill-.  Bodtvell.<  Both gentlemen arrived at n satisfactory iigreenicnt regarding future  tiraiigeiiu'iits.' anil everything looked  OK. But a little cloud has arisen on  the. horizon wliich has. di mined the  splendid project. F. C. Cotton. AI. P.  P., pioprietor of the Vancouver News-  Advertiser, a prominent Conservative  and member of the loci! opposition, is  also anxious for a cabinet position in  the event of the" overthrow of tho  Turne'i- government. " Hu lu'lieves that  he has claims for recognition in this  regard that cannot be overlooked.  Now, Alessrs. Bodwell ami Davis disagree with him in this opinion, and  there lies the.dangeV of n split iu the  ranks of the party-that may prove  elisastroii-5. ���������   "  The Vancouvei' contingent of the  Liberal party had everything fixed for  Mr.' "Cotton's ""overthrow, but -t.he.ir  plans were all ups������*t .by the untimely  demise of ex-Mayor .Templeton. Had  he lived he would have undoubtedly  received the nomination at the opposition convent ion in Vancouver  with the assistance of the Liberals,  and;.Air. Cotton would have been  turned down. But fate ruled otherwise.  The altered e-ondition of t affairs has  certainly improved Air. Cotton'*!  political chances, and this is what  Iwthi'is IS. P. Davis. The latter gentleman is a staunch Liberal, as everyone  knows, and he has stated ejuitc plainly  his aveis'on to lending his efforts to a  movement that would result in elevnt-  ~i"j7g"~"t(i" "oflice Alessfsr^Cotton-imil-  Williains, anel dyed-in-the-wool Conservatives of that type. Air. Davis  has, it is whispered, stated quite emphatically that he will not consent to  become* a candidate unless Air. Cotton  is side-tracked. As it does not seem  likely that this can he done. Air. Bodwell, who will not be a candidate  unless Air. Davis is one also, has, to  use an expressive but inelegant  phrase, "jumped the traces." and there,  are long faces iu local Liberal circles  thereat. -    -  Cor.

The Trout Lake Topic speaking of  the Silver Chief claim, on Golden  Gulch, a tributary .of Gainer creek,  wliich is owned by llio Trout Luke  Alining Co.Jor which H. J. Stewart is  manager says: "The Silver Chief  claim upon which a Winnipeg company expended considerable money  last year shows largo bodies of ore.  This"company crosscut tho vein with  a 30-foot tunnel and being -.satisfied  with the showing drove a tunnel fur-  th������r down the hill and tapped the vein  at a depth of 200 feet. They got assays  as high as 800 onnceH ot silver from  samples of ore taken from the lower  tunnel. This claim joins the lluby  Silver on the south. The Silver Hill  and th:> Silver Tip claims adjoin the  Silver Chief. There is a good pack  trail from Ten Alile on South Fork of  Lardeau Creek to these claims, a distance, of three and one-half miles. As  soon as practicable work will be resumed cm the Ruby Silver this spring  by the owners. This claim hns been  pronouneed a bonanza by several experts.  Without previous warning or any  apparent reason one of the chimneys  on the government house building  laid down to rest on the roof on Satur-  d:.y night. Too much mica in its constitution   is  the  diagnosis of the ofU-  TIIE RING AND REFORM  The Mail protests tlinl.it  cannot follow   the   11 mtai.d's   iirgiunetils.    We  will endeavor to  inaki' them   clearer.  It   i.s   going   to   be a ilillicult job, hut  bye and liyu we hope,   lo get  them   in  such shape that  even llie   intellectual  canncity   of   tlie   Mail can  assimilate  them.    The Mail is stipposetl to he the  Liberal organ, Bostuck's organ, in fact  his barrel organ, they supply the organ  and he supplies the b.'iui'l.    Well then  the IIkrai.d says that for the   Liberal  p'irty   to   piesent   themselves  in   the  light of the history of the  past eighteen   months   once    more   before   the  electors of this proviiiic.posing as the  advocates of a pure and honest administration  is an  insult to the common  sense   and   reasoning, powers   of  the  community.   And the IIerald further   says   that   for  the electors of this  province  to  oust   Mr. Turner tind put  in his place the kind of gang   that  are  now beginning to bob up   their heads  as the  representatives of  reform, but  really as the nominees of  the  Liberal  patty, would  be  an  even  greater instance  of fatuity  than   was exhibited  by   the disgruntled Conservatives in  189(3, when they put Laurier in  power  because they wore afraid of the Pope.  The   Hekald   says   that    the   party,  which   has   so'grossly    deceived   the  electorate in Dominion affairs, cannot  be  entrusted  to  reform   the affairs of  this province and it further s.iys  that  any   faint   expectatiun     that .reform  could possibly come out of   it becomes  still   more lu'dicious as   the. names of  the  intending  *'Beftiim "   candidates  are   announced.    To put   out  a   man  like* Air. Turner and liis associates and  put in an administration of which Air.  111. P. Davis, of Vancouver,  is to he a  burning and shining light in the name  of reform and purity of.-ulininist ration  woulel   be   even   less sensible than to  expect the same blessings to come out  of a Liberal ^victoiy gained as it was  by pledges, wliich  wore   never  meant  to be redeemed, hypocritical  denunciations/if tlu* very  policy, which  they  since adopted aud'c-iuTied f'U'ther than  even their opponents ever dreamt of  doing and in l.hiscotistltuenc-y for one.  as in many others. Iiy a  wholesale* debauchery and corruption of t.he electorate.   Purity   and honesty are   not  inaugurated by a campaign carried on  by falsehood and five  dollar, hills, noils there  the faintest, hope   that they  will he secured to this province hy putting out the Turner cabinet in  order  toilet in the Davis administration.  As for the lil tie gang   of self seekers  behind  the  Alail  in this contest up to  the present time tliey   have  managed,  while posing as   opponents of the Turner government, to secure  everything  that was lo be got either in "the  way  of_pn.sitioiis_or_coni'essiiiiis._m^________>__L  thing with money in it out iif that  government. Their fury and amazement ^tvhe.n without warhir'g their  little game suddenly came to a, stop  wns .unbounded. That any body would  even dare to solicit Anything from the  government, who was "outside of the  charmed circle, revolving round the  sacred person of Air. Kellie tvas simply  inconceivable. That.ring thej Hekald  is proud to say it took no small share  iu destroying and ever since* the members of the gang have been groping  about trying to put I ho pieces together  again. Even now that Air. Kellie is  iu opposition they cannot believe; that  it is all over, that the shower of blessings has ceased to fall on their heads  and that his inlliiiiiiee has departed.  The Ill"itAl.l> presumes that Air. Kellie  is : to be the "Ileform"candidate in  this constituency. Let the electois  remember that llie only reform likely  to come out of him and his friends is  the re-furination of lhe ring and then  they will he able lu scale their promises down to their ri'.'il value. Ileform  is all very tvull, bill when the ring begins to look pious and talk reform, it  is time for ordinary people to beg to  be excused.  places the huard'of trade is as its name  implies a council of those engaged in  actual trade, wholesale or retail. Into it no person nijt so engaged, no professional .man. no .commission' agent,  no hotel keeper, nn simple, property  owner is .-'admitted. Its 'deliberations  mainly concern trades people and as  such are natiu-illy not divulged, except when tin- board goes out of its  way to express an opinion on some,  question of general interest, when its  resolutions are handed to the press for  publication. This board here has no  resemblance to such a body except in  name. It is really a civic committee  for handling the affairs of this community until the town becomes incorporated. As long as it holds that  position the press should be admitted  to its deliberations and the fullest  publicity given to tlie-iu. After incorporation the board will be at liberty to  do what it pleases, as the interest,  which the public now takes in its actions and Ihe importunes, which they  really possess, will be transferred to  the doings of the town council.  THE YUKON RAILWAY  EXTENSIVE POWERS" Gl'tfEN  THE MANN-MACKENZIE-  GONTRAGT.-  BY  The hill of fare shadowed forth in  the speech from the throne is not  very lengthy. 'The government pats  itself on the back for the reception  given to the Canadian representatives  at the Jubilee*, the bountiful harvest  and the discovery of gold in the  Yukon. The Mann Mackenzie contract  is mentioned and bills respecting  superannuation, the repeal- of" .the  franchise act and for a plebiscite on  prohibition ar** enumerated. There is  no allusion to a bankruptcy act, which  is certainly a measure pressing for  immediate attention much more than  a prohibition plebiscite, which in the  Hukai.d's opinion might very well be  deferred to the* next general election.  The temperance commission cost the  country $150,000. without being of tho  smallest practical value to the temperance cause, or anything else. Now we  are to be put to the expense of a general election in order to test the  feeling of the countrypn this subject,  and "when it is taken, even if the temperance sentiment is on the whole  proved by it to he the stronger, the  Hekald ventures to predict-that the  government will never undertake the.  enormous difficulties of giving the  plebiscite the only practical effect  attached to it, that of enforcing prohibition from one end of Canada to  the other. The temperance vote will  certainly be in a minority in some "of  the provinces, even if the total vote is  in its favor. Ikies any mati in his  senses suppose that any government  will venture for instance to coerce  British Columbia into prohibition,.because Ontario is in favor ef it.

The pi en is that newspapers  are not adtnitti'il to the meetings of  the executive of lioiirds in other places.  It is quite true that they arc not. But  there are other points of.difference between the Kevelstoke board and  boards of trade in other places, which  the executive would do, woi I to consider before they conic to any deeisictn on  .this matter. These differences are set  great that us a matter of tact escept  in its name, the Revelstoke board is  not a bourePof trade  at all.    In.most  Protection of the River' Bank.

WEDNESDAY,       FEB.    i).  1S~S,  IMPERIAL DEFENCE  A suggestion or rather a demand  has been made by Great Britain  upon Canada for a contribution  towards the expense of maintaining the Imperial navy. _ lhe  demand was preceded by significant speeches by English statesmen. At Bristol, Sir Michael  Hicks-Beach made no bones about  btating tbat it tvas not creditable  to Canada that she should contribute ' nothing to tho naval  defences of the empire, and spoke  of the "rude awakening" which  would follow the neglect of what  ���������was her manifest duty. In the  Fcheme for Imperial Federation,  it- has always been a part of the  programme that Canada should  ���������contribute her share towards  Imperial defence.  Canada needs no reminder or her  duty in" this regard, even when  strengthened by the veiled threat  suggested in Sir Michael Hicks  Beech's Bristol speech. It may be  takLon.fnr erantprl t-.lxu-t the neoole  of this country are unanimously  in favor of the principle which  makes all British colonies contribute towards the defences of  the empire. The details which  remain to be settled are, firstly:  The amount of the contribution  and secondly, the manner of its  application. vt ith regard- to the  first item, it would seem as if the  Canadian governmenthad assessed  the country S50.000 as the premium  to be paid to our Imperial underwriters. Before long, no doubt,  some permanent arrangements  -will be made, based on proper considerations, but in the meantime  There is very little danger of the  British government asking us for  anore than is just���������or even as  much.  ^_^_As-=_to���������the~application_oL^the.  money, the decision will in all  probability rest with the British  government, but any suggest iiu  from Canada wil! doubtless  receive due attention. The establishment of a training ship in  Canadian waters might possibly  be suggested by way of showing  Imperial gratitude, but however  it may be applied, it will be for  our bedefit.  It must not be forgotten by out-  brothers in England that Canada  has already done more to assist  Imperial defence than any other  -���������olony. The existence of the  Canadian Pacific Railway at a  time like the present, when  .Britain may, any day, need a short  cut to the east, is of more practical  strength to the Imperial position  than any cash contribution, it is  n significant fact that on the .-'tune,  evening that Sir Michael Hicks  Beach was speaking at Bristol, the  Colonial Secretary at Liverpool  tvas alluding to our trail-continental road as "a maguificent  enterprise." At the present  -moment, the C. P. II. is Britain's  trump card.  closing days of the session to  discuss Mr. Haycock's resolution  proposing a reduction in tlie  number of members of the Ontario  legislature. Xo country, certainly  no Anglo-Saxon country, is_ provided with such a vast machinery  of government as we posses*-. li  our population were at least five  times as largo as at present we  could get along veiy well without  any increase in the'.number of our  membeis of parliament, cabinet  ministers aud officials of state.  "Including senators and members of tho legislative councils,  which exist in some of the  provinces, we havo in all 710  members of parliament., or about  ono member for every 7,000 of out*  population. These members draw  everv year as sessional allowance  $531,'1-10, besides mileage, which  probablv amounts to nearly, if not  quito $100,000 more. The cabinet  ministers who (haw salaries  number in all T,0, and receive  yearlv from the public treasury  $217,000. If Great Britain and  Ireland hud proportionately, as  many members and cabinet  ministers as Canada, their members of parliament would number  about .",752 and their ministers lo"2.  If the people of the Uuited State-  were proportionately governed  their cabinet ministers anel state  oi'ficers would number 750, and  their senators and representatives  over 10,000.  "We have also tiie governor  general aud lieutenant governors,  who are furnished with residences  and receive salaries aggregating  $121,000. The interest on thu  value of the olii'jial residences, thc*  cost of maintaining them and  paying the salaries of secretaries  and attendants cannot bo readily  obtained, but a, moderate estimate  would make it not less tlum  .-"150,000 per annum. This makes  the total cost of tlie governor  general and lieutenant governors  alone in the neighborhood oi  $300,000 yearly.  "The business of the governor  and lieutenant governors is to do  what their prime ministers tell  theni. They are .just so many  dummies, . yet retaining the  outward signs .of their ancient  powers., Whatever Sir Oliver  Motvat does except to entertain  Toronto society, could be just as  well done with a rubber stamp,  which Mr. Hardy could carry  arouud in his pocket. A rubber  stamp would; indeed, be preferable  to n live lieutenant governor. It-  would tervo without a $10,000  salary, aud could be housed and  waited on without expense to the  people. Why should our people  be taxed for a quarter of a million  dollars a year to provide spending  money, lor British Lords iind  superannuated politicians?  "IE our government machinery  had been framed by tho farmer."-,  who hud. to pav for it. rather than  qy the politicians who live.by it.  many au official would iind it  necessary to sen about earning his  own liying., This question ol over  government is one of the great  questions to be dealt with."  Economy may not be popular  with the politicians who are 'out  for the stuff,' but ic is what the  people need. Tho best kind of immigration policy we can aclopt is  to make conditions of life so  favorable that people will  stay here."  omitted iu the summary of the  agreement published in the  government press, is as follows:  "[("or live years from September  1, 1808, no line of railway shall be  authorized by parliament to be  constructed from Lyun Canal or  from any point near tho international boundary liue between  Canada aud Alaska into the  Yukon, nor shall any aid in money  or laud be gijincod to any other  contractors for tliis purpose."  Let it be thoroughly understood  that this is not a matter of tho  construction ol' a long line ot  railway over a new country,  where traffic returns are moro or  less of the future. The road to be  built is only l-'.O miles long, and  the tral'lie is already being hauled  over its course by manual labor tit  an enormous cost. The very first  train which runs will earn big  money. Scores of companies were  Moated not looking f jr land grants  or subsidies wliich were williug to  build this load for the profits to be  made out of it. But for reasons  thatarenot at present capable nf  explanation even by the more  courageous of the party papers,  tho business man has been thrust  aside while the omnivorous  magnate manipulates the ministers, and receives something that  no other person even dreamed to  ask lor. -The crookedness of the  deal would not be so exasperating  if it were not accompanied by the"  nauseating protestations of  honesty with which it has been  sought to cover it up.  Whether parliament will interfere iu the interests of the people,  who are being buncoed out of a  valuablo possession, remains to  be seen.  PROMINENT   WESTERN   MAN  SHORT ACCOUNT  OF THE LIFE  OF JUDGE RICHARDSON  Jt has been said Lhnfc there is uo  royal road to the Klondyke but  that the route by Regina and  Prince Albert is the nearest  approach'to it. The joke is undoubtedly a good one, although  the trip ro the Klondyke is no joke  at all. Where t.he real joke comes  in is iu the fact that both the  Regina and Calgary routes lead to  Foit McMurray and that coarse  gold has been found iu that  neighborhood.  "A NATION   OF OFFICE  HOLDERS"  Under , this heading in the  Toronto Weekly Sun, Professor  Goldwin Smith ably discusses the  machinery of government in  Canada, .which seems to involve  the expenditure of.Ian enormous  sum or money~annually which  --night be spent in many cases  to much greater advantage.  Applying the Professor's argument  to the North West Territories,  -when one considers the amount  paid out in salaries to officials and  indemnities to member.-, and coin-  Dare the expenditure with the  practical results oi'^the deliberations ot our legislators, there  seems to be a great deal of doubt  rasto whether we are getting fair  ���������value for our money. Professor  Smith's views, which will meet the  endorsfttion of most people who  ttra neither prominent officials or  anembers of, parliament, are set  forth as follows: 'i  "It is to be regretted that there  -fvas not an opportunity during the  TIIE YUKON RAILWA YDEA L  The more that is learned oC the  details of the agreement between  the .Federal government nnd  "MessrsT-^Ma mv���������and���������Mc Ken~~ier  relative to the construction of the  railway to the Yukon, the more  indefensible appears to be ihe  action of the government. Jn the  first place, the contract has been  awarded by private arangement  without calling for tenders in  direct violation of the policy so  strongly advocated by the Liberals  when in opposition. The vcry  same men who a year or two ago  were so loud in condemning the  expenditure of public money  without the previous sanction of  parliament are today guilty of the  offence against which tliey raised  such an outcry, and the very same  newspapers which attacked the  Conservatives are to be found  now vainly endeavoring to draw  nice distinctions between what has  been and what is.  The term j of the contract itself  are so liberal as to draw tears  from the eyes of the snap seeker.  Twenty-five thousand acres of the  b*-st gold mining land in the  Dominion, to be selected by the  construction company at it*, own  discretion, go with every mile of  road which thoy build. Mr.  Jennings-, who surveyed the route  for the government placed the outside ceist of construction at $25,000  per mile, so that in reality Mes.-.i-s.  Mann et* McKenzie have secured  the right to purchase a big slice of  the Yukon gold fields at the  nominal price of a dollar an acre.  Lest they should be confounded  with the ordinary miner who  earns his gold by the sweat of his  brow, and who pays a royalty of  10 per cent on his product, a provision has been made whereby  Messrs. Mann and Mackenzie -hall  pay only one per cent by way of  royalty. In order to prevent  other people from worrying  Messrs. Mann and McKenzie by  building through the' Dalton Trail  Pass, which is the only other  practical railway route over the  mountain range, the government  has given theni a fito ye'ir'--  monopoly���������a monopoly inlinitcly  worse than the monopolies which  wei-e cursed on many" a Liberal  platform during the general  election campaign.

Dchrclt informs us  that Judge Richardson was bom on  July 21,1820,the son of English parents  lie was educated at the district grammar school, of London. Out. After  the usual keeping of terms he was  called to the bar of Upper Canada at  at Hilary Term, LS17. During the  troublous times across Uie border and  .inst before the Trent nlT.iir. the then  'Mr. Richardson hud ix great deal to do  with re-organizing the first volunteer  militia rifle company, of Woodstock,  which he joined as a private, and in  "315, after 15 years' service, diirino-  which he served as major (ISOI-05) on  the Quebec frontier and was in command (1SGU) of the Surma frontier as  lieutenant colonel, he became a retired  lieutenant colonel with rank. In 1S72  Mr. Richardson entered the department rl" justice, Ottawa, as chief clerk,  and remained such with intervals as  acthi-r deputy minister of justice until  July 22, JS7G. when ho was app'iinted  stipendiary magistrate for (.he North  West Territories, and in lSSIJ, was hy  comiiiission appointed a judge under  the extradition act, IS37, "within the  North West Terricor  the  stale   trial   of  any one who has read the olficial report of that historical event cannot  fail to remark the great, care discovered and the acumen shown by Judge  Richaielson on that celebrated occasion. Indeed the thorough sifting of  all mattcis brought belorei his court,  and the skilful way of ascertaining the  credibility of ��������� evidence, often by a  single question, tire ma'tors of common observation; while a quaint and  dry'sort oi' humor, always good natur-  ed, would furnish the collector of bar  stories and anecdote with abundant  material. In Febiuaiy, LS37. the  learned judge received his commission  as senior judge of the supreme courl  of the North West Territories, fn  September of the same year-Judge  Richardson was by commission appointed a member eif the council Loaid  the Lieutenant Governor in the ad-  iiiinistration of the North Wett Territories, and his services in this capa-  citv were the subject of Favorable comment in the House ol" Commons by Sir  John A.

A  year ago" Judge Richardson was  appointed aibnitiislraloi' of the  government of the North West Territories during thd ivbsence of Lieutenant-Governor Mackintosh, and again  on the 3rd ot January he received a  similar commission under which ho is  still acting. On many occasions the  learned judge has received tokens of  respect and esteem From the public as  well as from the highest official ranks.

A-GIGANTIC-SALK-^*-^-" ' ~''    ' "  Does  Not Apply in   the  Case   of Mill  Feed From the North West  "I don't think the agriculturists "of  WesternCanada are very wideawake"  said a Rossland man in the, Times the  other dav. "Here, in Southern  Kootenay.'iicarly all the hay used is  brought in from Washington, tind we  have to pay the duty of $2 per ton.  Over in Alberta they can raise line  timothy hay.if they want to, but tliey  seein tii be content with slough grass,  which, of course, is only lit for cattle  to eat."  "How about the freight rates from  these points'-" tvas asked.  "I don't think the details of the so-  called freight reduction to Rossland are  geneially under'tood, tit least as far as  Hour and mill stuffs is concerned.   The  quotations sent in to buyers here are  based on reduced.rates.   But the situation is this:   The rates on these products froiti Manitoba points have been  reduced ������'���������! per ton, hut the reduction  eloes    not    affect   territorial   points,  whence the bulk of milk., feed  is shipped.    Even  with the reduction from  Manitoba, itis yet about $2 a  ton   to  buy in the Territories. '  The Spokane  i*c Northern is giving a specitil rate on  oats, but no reduction on  other feed.  So the Canadian Pacific Railway has  no competition to  meet in   this   line.  The bulk of the mill   feed   used   here  such as  oatmeal,   oats,   bran,   shorts  and chop comes from Alberta, but the  flour comes chiefly from  the  Lake of  the AVooels, Ogilvie's nulls in Manitoba  and     Keewatin.     The    freight from  Manitoba to Rossland is $1."* per ton,  while from Spokane it is only $7   per  ton, with  the  duty  of 7~   cents per  barrel added.   But the Manitoba No.  1 hard manes the   best bread  and   is  used mote than   the Spokane article,  which is only considered lit for pastry.  When the  Canadian   Pacific  Railway  rejehes here Rossland will be ;*. common point and enjov the same rates as  Nelson, btitnow as the Canadian   Pacific   Railway   has not   absorbed   the  Jleiu/,e road, we have  to .pay $'**   per  ton extra upon the haul from Trail  to  Rossland, or that much inoic on   the  products of the Territories nntl  Mnni-  than the* merchants at oth~r Koolenay  points do."

The  ] licks-Beach made no bones about  btating that it was not creditable  i.o Canada that she should contribute nothing to the naval  defences of the empire, and spoke  of the "rude awakening" which  would follow the' neglect of what  was her manifest duty. In the  scheme for Imperial Federation,  it has always been a part of the  programme that Canada should  contribute her share towards  Imperial defence.  Canada needs no reminder or her  duty in this regard, even when  strengthened by tlie veiled threat  suggested in Sir Michael Hicks  Beech's Bristol speech. Ic may be  takon fnr grantor- r.h.������.t the. peoole  of this country are unanimously  in favor of the principle which  makes all British colonies contribute-towards the defences of  the empire. The details which  remain to be settled are. firstly:  the amount of the contribution  and secondly, the manner of its  application. V\ ith regard- to the  first item, it would seem as if the  Canadian governmenthad assessed  the country $50,000 as the premium  to be paid to our Imperial underwriters. - Before long, uo doubt,  some permanent arrangements  will be made, based on proper considerations, but in the meantime  -there is very little danger of the  British government asking us for  xnore than is just���������or even as  much.  ���������-As^to���������the���������application- of-^-the  money, the decision will in ull  probability rest with the British  government, but any suggest! m  from Canada will doubtless  receive due attention. The establishment of a training ship in  Canadian wacers might possibly  be suggested by way of showing  Imperial gratitude, but however  It may be applied, it will be for  uiir bedefit.  It must not be forgotten by our  brothers in England tbat Canada  has already done more to assist  Imperial defence than any other  i.-olonj-. The existence of the  Canadian PaciGc Railway at a  lime like the present, when  33 ri tain inay, any day, need a short  cut to the east, is of more practical  strength to the Imperial position  than any cash contribution. Itis  r significant fact that on the same  evening that Sir Michael Ilicks  Beach was speaking at Bristol, the  Colonial Secretary at Liverpool  was alluding to our transcontinental road as "a magnificent  enterprise." At the present  moment, the C. P. R. is Britain's  trump card.  closing days of tho session to  discuss Mr. Haycock's resolution  proposing a reduction in the  number of members of the Ontario  legislature. No country, certainly  no Anglo-Saxon country, is provided with such a vast machinery  of government as tve possess, if  our population were at least five  times as large as at present) we  could get along veiy well without  any increase* in tho'.numbor of our  niombeis of parliament, cabinet  ministers and ol1ic_.it~.ls of state.  "Including senators and members of tho logUlntivo councils,  which exist in some of the  provinces, we have in all 711)  members of parliament, or about  ono member for cvory 7,000 of our  population. These members draw  every year as sessional allowance  .$;~;*1,'1-I0, besides mileage, whicli  probablv amounts to nearly, if not  finite $100,000 more. The cabinet  ministers who draw salaries  number in all ."0, and receive  vear I v from tho public treasury  $217,000. If Great Uritain and  Ireland hael proportionately as  many members and cabinet  ministers as Canada, their members of parliament would number  about .~,752and their ministers -lo2.  If the people of the Uuited States  were proportionately governed  their cabinet ministers nnel state  officers would number 7~0, and  their senators and representatives  over 10,000.  "We have also the governor  gonernl ami lieutenant governors,  who are furnished with residences  and receive salaries aggregating  $121,000. The interest on the  value of the ollk-ial residence-,, the  cost of maintaining them and  paying the salaries of secretaries  and attendants cannot bo readily  obtained, but a moderate estimate  would make it not less than  $l.*i0,C00 per annum. This makes  thu total cost of the governor  general and lieutenant governors  alone iu the neighborhood of  $300,000 yearly.  "The business of the governor  and lieutenant governors is to do  what their prime ministers tell  them. They are -.just so many  dummies, yet retaining the  outward signs of their ancient  powers.. Whatever Sir Oliver  JNlotvnt does except to entertain  Toronto society, could be just as  well done with a rubber stamp,-  which Mr. Hardy could carry  tiround in his pocket. A rubber  stamp would; indeed, be preferable  to a live lieutenant governor. II:  would serve without a $10,000  salary, aud could be housed and  waited on without expense to tho  people. Why should our peoplo  ,be taxed for a rpiirterof a million  dollars a year to provide spending  money lor British Lords and  superannuated politicians'1  "If our government machinery  had been framed by the farmers,  wlio line! to pay i'or it, rather than  qy the politicians wholivoby it,  many an oilicial would fine! it  necessary to set about earning his"  own living.. This question oi over  government is onu of the groat  questions to be dealt with.  Economy may not be popular  with the politicians who nre 'out  for the stuff,' but ic is what the  people need. Tho best kind of immigration policy tve can adopt is  to make conditions ot life so  favorable that people will  stay here."  omitted in the summary of the  agreement published in tho  government press, is as follows:  "("or live years from September  1, leSUS, no linn of railway shall be  authorized by parliament to be  constructed from Lynn Canal or  from any point near tho international boundary line between  Canada and Alaska into the  Yukon, nor shall any aid in money  or land be gran cod to any other  contractors for this purpose."  Lot it be thoroughly understood  that this is not a matter of the  construction of a long line ot  railway over a new country,  where tniflic returns arc moro or  less of tho future". Tlio road to bo  built is only I'.O miles long, nnd  the traffic is already being hauled  over ics course by manual labor at  an enormous cost. Tlio very first  train whicli runs will earn big  money. Scores of companies wero  Moated noC looking I'll' land grants  or subsidies which were willing to  build this load for the profits to be  made" out of it. But for reasons  that are not nt present capable of  explanation even by the more  courageous of tho party papers,  the business man has been thrust  aside while the omuivorous  magnate manipulates the ministers, and receives something that  no other person even dreamed to  ask ior. The crookedness of the  deal would not be so exasperating  if it were not accompanied by the  nauseating protestations of  honesty with which it has been  sought to cover it up.  Whether parliament will interfere iu the interests of tho people,  who are being buncoed out of a  valuable possession, remains to  be seen.  PROMINENT   WESTERN   MAN  SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE  OF JUDGE RICHARDSON  Jt has been said that there is no  royal road to the Klondyke but  that the route by Region and  Prince Albert is tho n pa rest  approach to it. The joke is undoubtedly a good one, although  the trip lo the Klondyke is no joke  ac all. Where t.he real joke comes  iu is in the fact that'-both'the  Regina and Calgary routes lead to  Foil: McMurray and tliat coarse  gold has been found iu that  neighborhood.  "A NATION  OF OFFICE  HOLDERS"  Under    this    heading    in   the  Toronto   Weekly  Sun,   Professor  Goldwin Smith ably discusses the  -machinery    of  ' government     in  Canada, .which seems  to involve  the expenditure of.Ian enormous  sum   of   money^annually   which  -might   be   spent   in many   cases  -to     much    greater     advantage.  Applying the Professor's argument  ���������to   the   North   West  Territories,  -when   one considers the amount  paid out ia salaries to officials and  indemnities to members, aud com-  -oare   the   expenditure   with   the  practical results oCthe deliberations   ot    our    legislators,   there  seems to be a great deal of doubt  ������s to whether we are getting fair  ���������value for  our money.    Professor  Smith's views, which will meet the  endorsation of most people  who  ars neither prominent oflicials or  members of parliament,   are   set  forth as follows:  "It is to be regretted that there  r~vas not an opportunity during the  THE YUKON RAIL WA Y DEA L  The more that is learned of the  details of the agreement between  .tlie    Federal,   government a_nd_  "Messrs". "Maun and McKenzie.  relative to the construction of the  railway to the Yukon, the more  indefensible appears to be the  action of the government. In the  lirst place, the contract has been  awarded by private arangement  without calling for tenders in  direct violation" of the policy so  strongly advocated by the Liberals  when in opposiciou. The very  same men who a year or two ago  were so loud in condemning the  expenditure of public money  without the previous sanction of  parliament are today guilty of the  offence against which they raised  such au outcry, nnil the very same  newspapers which attacked the  Conservatives are to be found  now vainly endeavoring to lira it-  nice distinctions between what hus  been and what is.  The terms of the contract itself  are so liberal as to draw tears  from the eyes of the snap seeker.  Twenty-five thousand acres of the  bsst gold mining land in the  Dominion, to be selected by the  construction company at its own  discretion, go with every mile of  road which they build. Mr.  Jennings, who surveyed the route  for the government placed the outside cost of construction at S .������5,000  per mile, so that in reality .Messrs.  Mann ct- McKenzie have secured  the right to purchase a big slice: of  the Yukon golrl fields at the  nominal price of a dollar nn acre.  Last they should be confounded  with the ordinary miner who  earns his gold by the sweat of his  brow, and who pays a royalty of  10 per cent on his product, a provision has been made whereby  Messrs. Mann and Mackenzie shall  pay only one per cent by way of  royalty. In order to prevent  other people from worrying  Messrs. Mann and McKenzie by  building through the Dal ton Trail  Pass, which is the only other  practical railway route over the  mountain range, the government  has given them a fi\ rs _year's  monopoly���������a monopoly infinitely  worse thati the monopolies whicli  were cursed on many a Liberal  platform during the general  election campaign.

Perhaps no one     is     better known  throughout Western  Assiniboia than  Judge Hichiirdson.    In  Kegina where  lie lives, he is one   of   the  institutions  of the town,     A   man  of methodical  habits, even his morning walks are so  constant that it lias become proverbial  that watches and clocks can be timed  by the regularity   "f   his appearances  every day with cheery   greetings   for  those among  whom   he has lived  for  many years.   One   would   hardly imagine from his hale,   and   hearty   carriage that he has  passed  the  allotted  span ot life, but,   Debrett   informs  us  that Judge Richardson  was liotn  on  July 2l,182(l,thc son of li'tighsh parents  He was educated at the district grammar school, of  London,  Ont.    After  the usual  keeping   of   terms   lie ..wus  called to the bar of Upper Canada at  ul Hilary   Term,   1817.     During   the  troublous times across the   border and  just before the Trent affair,  the then  Mr. Richardson had a great eUal to do  with re-organizing the lirst, volunteer  militia rifle company, of  Woodstock,  which he ioincd tis a   private,  and in  1.SI5, after   15   years'   service*,  duritiir  which he served as major   (1S15I 03) on  the Quebec frontier and V7its   in   command (lSOti) of the   S.arnia  frontier as  lieutenant, colonel, lie became a retired  lieutenant colonel with iimk.     In 1S72  Mr. Richardson   entered   the  department ef justice, Ottawa, as chief clerk,  and remained, such with   intervals   as  acLincr deputy minister of justice until  July 22, !S7t), when he  was appointed  stipendiary magistrate for the   North  West Territories, and in   1SS!), tvas by  commission appointed a  judge  under  the extradition act, 1S37.

FREIGHT   RATE   REDUCTION  Does Not Apply in   the   Case   of Mill  Feed From the North West  "1 don't think the agriculturists of  WesternCanada are very wideawake"  said a Rossland man iu the Times the  other dav. "Hero, in Southern  Kootehav.'noarly all the hay used is  brought'in from Washington, and we  have to pav the duty of ,'2 per ton.  Over in Alberta they can raise lino  timothy hay if they want to, but they  seem to he content with sIourIi grass,  which, of course, is only lit for cattle  to eat."  "How about the freight rates from  these points?" was asked.  "[ don't think tho details of the so-  called freight reduction to Rossland are  genetallv under-stood, at least as far as  Hour and mill stuffs is concerned.   The  quotations sent in to buyers here are  based on reduced, rates.   But thu situation is this:   The rates on these products froii*. Manitoba points have been  u reduced .$3 per ton, hut the reduction  eloes    not    affect   territorial   points,  whence the bulk of milk feed is ship-  -ped.   Even  with the reduction from  Manitoba., ills yet about ."-. a  ton   to  buy in the Territories.     The Spokane  to Northern is giving a special rate on  oats, but no reduction on  other feed.  So the Canadian Pacific Railway has  no competition to  meet iu   this   line.  The bulk of the mill   feed   used   here  such as   oatmeal,   oats,   bran,   shorts  and chop comes from Alberta, but the  Hour conies chiefly from  the  Lake of  the Woods, Ogilvie's mills in Manitoba  and     Keewatin.    The    freight from  Manitoba to Rossland is $1*. per ton,  while from Spokane it is only $1   per  ton, with  the  duty  of  7*5  cents per  barrel added.   But the Manitoba No.  1 hard inaKCS the   best  bread  and   is  used more* than  the Spokane article,  which is only considered fit for pastry.  When the Canadian   Pacific Railway  H'cichcti here Rossland will be .a common point and enjoy tlie same rates as  Nelson, butnow as'the  Canadian   Pacific   Railway   bus not   absorbed   the  Jleinze road, tve have  to.pay .$2   per  Ion extra upon the haul from Trail  to  Rosiland, or that much  mene on   the  products, of theTerritoties and  Mani-  thiin the merchants at otlurKootenay  points do,"  GREAT BRITAIN SIDES IN WITH  THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT  $400,000 FIRE AT  THE   'PEG  The Eighth Parliament Opens Today-  Arrangements Made by t lie U.

Ovor the  canyon of the Medicine River northwest, of t he town a great black cloud  was coming up wilh terrible swiftness,  and in a few minutes the full force of  tl.e wind struck the house. The clear  blue sky was fast blotted out by driving clouds .-ind the stillness of the  winter day gave place to a continuous  roar and howling of the storm.  The* little house shook  in   the   wind  and the  warmth   of   the   room   soon  began   to   get.   chilled.       fattcis   felt  frightened.

Rye and bye she . began  to  feel  hungry again and took .some  more  of  tl.e bread and milk uud then crept back  to her seat behind the stove.    Nothing  could be hi.")rd  except the  ticking  of  the clock and the raving of the  wind.  Now and  again  the   coal   would   fall  with a little clatter in  the self-feeder.  Aud so she sat and   sobbed   lo herself,  and   wondered  why  her ui.ainisia did  not get up   and   wlie.lher   her   d.-idda  might not come home and comfort bis  little gill, as he had so often, done  in  her troubles before.     She  was  thinking about biui, when of a sudden above  the howling of the  wind,  sin;   caught  the sound of a sleigh bell eoming.along  Lhe to.ul.    it stopped at llie. back, gate  and a sharp knock rattled ou the storm  door at the  kitchen  entrance   of   the  house.     Tatter's   little   heart    leaped  within her.     Perhaps her   dad   really  had come back.    She. ran  to  the door  little bunches till the storm ending  found thorn away across the Montana  boundary. From the south east in  lhe Dakotahs, where the storm attained its greatest fury, came, when it was  all over, Mruii-.c tales of setl li-rs dying  within a few yards of their own doors  and of lonely travellers caught, and  frozen to death on the shelteiless expanse of the great plains.  In lhe little* sitting ro.nn at .Medicine  Row the lire was gone out. and the  cold v.as intense. The wolf robe  slipped nil", the liLtle girl huddled up  n the big chair, in tli.' midst, of her  dolls, but the cold did not wake her any  more.  Far it way in Kootenav that evening  a man was leaning at the desk in the  bar of an he t.-l iu a. mining camp,  whic'i had spi ting up into sudden life  a lew months before. He was writing  a letter and he smiled to himself as he  wrote, epiile oblivions of n game of  poker pi-ocec'iling tvil.liin three feet, of  liis back and an argument on true  fissiu e'S going on among llie crowd  lined up lo the bar, with eepial gravity,  incoherenca and strong language. He  was writing to tell his wife at .Medicine  How that he had got. a job at last, a  job with good pay. in a store, that, the  camp was looking up aud prospects  improving every-day; and that he  would be able to scud for her and his  di'.-ir little Tatters and lhe*y would soon  be living together and happy as before*.  The elort'ors said lhat the woman  had died of an aneurism near the  heart, and that the little girl must  have been frozen to death on the night,  of the grc*at. blizzard. The Medicine  Row .Times extended the sympathy  of the whole community to the man  iu his bereavement.  Agent for the f* liekenstier  Typewriter  fer  P. B.

The Gold Commissioner has reported  \-ery favorably to the government on  the reejiiest from the Tront Lake hoard  of trade for a thousand dollars to he  expended in clearing away the timber  on the siele of the Tiout Lake wagon  road.  Mr. G. F. Gr.andy came up from  Thomson's Landing a. tew days ago.  He found the ice on the Arm in rather  creaky condition .and fell through n  little distance from Whiskey Point,  only getting out with considerable  difficulty.  Mr. J. F.

Mr. Fallis is  on his way to Dyea, tvheie he will go  :nto the mercantile business.  Mr. J. I*. Sh'.'irin, who has been  travelling in Kootenay inspecting town  property for some English capital, was  in town yestei day. He purchased  property both in Nelson and Rossland  ;ind is inspecting the real estate situation here.  S. Thornton Langley has stated to  the Rossland Miner that he is much  impressed with what he saw in a, recent visit to the Lardeau, and that he  -tvill go more thoroughly over the  country at the first opportunity. He  thinks that there will be a big camp  in that vicinity.  A party nf miners came up from the  2>co mine at Sandon on Sunday  night. They had not cashed a check  all winter until ready to start for  Klondike. They are going to prospect  fr quartz. Four and a half dollars a  day is being offered fo miners in the  Sincan. as they are all pulling out for  Klondike.  Snowslides at Cl.anwilli.ani demoralized traffic to a considerable extent  from Saturday to Monday.
