II. should cut rates to Ottawa. The.  kind of snaps that nru going there  throw Klondike into tlu* shade altogether. The latest strike reported is  that made Iiy Jos. A. Murder, brother  of the late premier of Quebec, lie has  secured leases for gold dredging purposes from the government covering  284 miles of river in Yukon including  soon! within it few miles of Dawson  City, v Whether dredging" is possible,  on those rivers or. if possible, likely to  prove any more of a success in Yukon  then elsewhere is not of course yet  known. But Unit will not cut any ice  with Mr. Mercier. He has not got to  do tun' dredging. All he has to do is  to dispose of the leases. Already capitalists are after him to secure portions  of his valuable find. We congratulate  Mr. Mercier. It is now in order for the  government organs to point out to a  misbelieving public where the truly  liberal and democratic features of the  transaction come in.  A history might be written on the  Adventure* of a Paragraph. . Some  time ago the witty editor of the Free  Lance, an extraordinarily well written  little sheet published .-it a place called  Welnskiv. in on the Calgary and 12d-  monton line in Alberta. Printed a paragraph relating the fate of a party of  Klondikers, a fate which is perhaps  not so remarkable us at first, sight appears, .when one remembers that this  was the same party that packed 7o  .cases oE champagne up as far as'Edmonton, as part of tho essentials of a  trip to Klondike. One of the number  of whicli the party was, constituted  froze his feet, one sprained his tinkle,  one broke his arm, one broke his ribs,  two died, one was arrcsled on the  charge of embezzlement by the leader  of the party, who was himself subsequently placed in custody for attempting to stab a man and;given four days  to leave the country. The item in the  Free Lance was extensively.copied and  after going the rounds for some Lime  turned tip in the western papers, the  Manitoba Free Pi ess among others, as  :i Associated Press despatch from Montreal. The despatch appeared w ith the  other press telegrams in the Rossland  Miner, -md nowthe Record is fulling  foul of its hated rival I'or publishing  ���������'clothes line" despatches, as has unearthed the original paragr.eph in the  Free Lance.  The Rossland Miner suggests Ihe following electoral districts for West  "K~6~ote~i"iay: -.    ���������"    ~"~"~~     =������������������ ���������  The Trail Creek electoral district to  consist of the towns of Rossland and  Trail and what is known its the Trail  mining division.  2 Nelson electoral mining district, to  include what i.s now known as the Nelson and Goat river mining divisions.  3 Kaslo electoral district, to include  the city of Kaslo, the towns of Ainsworth anil Pilot' Day and what is  known as the Ainsworth mining division. ���������-'  -1 The Slocan electoi'nl district, to include what is known as the Slocan  mining division.  5 The Revelstoke electoral district to  include what is known as the Revelstoke, Illecillewaet and Trout Lake  electoral divisions.  There can of course he no doubt that  West Kootenay from her population  and even more, strikingly so from the  enormous proportion of the provincial  revenue derived from the district is  entitled to alarger representation that  she enjoys in the legislature at present.  Her population cannot he much less  than one fifth of the whole population  of the province. Her contribution to  the treasury reaches nearly one third  of the total amount set down under  the head of each district. At the same  time owing to the present distribution  of seats  in  the house other districts  Magic Liniment  Should be in every household for burns  and scalds, all forms of swellings, sore  throat, whooping cough, cold on the  chest, bites of insects and all forms of  inflammation. Magic Liniment is  superior to nil others.  A Terrible Habit.       .i-im  "Many peoplo have unconsciously become  victim" to the terrible cocaine ha~-.it, through  nsinp tin* catarrh po������de_rH which coriU.in this  drug. Japanese *-a.a-rh Cure does not rank  anions; this class of cawr'h cu*en. It is 11 thoroughly antiseptic pomade, which rea'hes the  seat of the disease: relieves cold in the head in  one minute, and there* is not a single case of  catirrhincurable, if this remedy is persistently  USC 'cc^'W. A. Griffiths & Co.,  BtI-Bmiti, "EVr.LSTnKl-..  are receiving grants for various purposes from the provincial revenue out  of all proportion to Uier real importance ni-.d standing in tlu province. At  the same time iu the absence of anything like definite slathtics at hand it  is very hard to lay down any definite  plan for a fresh sub-divUinn of the dis-  tiitt. A return showing the number  of voters on the lists in each registration ofrice would Im a great help t.o enable the public to know how things  really stand. The. calculations 'made  from diiectories are alisoluLely valueless. These compilations do not pretend except in the case of 11 few towns  to give more than the addresses of men  actually in some kind of business. We  are really discussing the rpiesli'.'ii at  present entirely in the d.trk and no one  cm really attack it with any advantage without such a return .of the  figures of the voteis lists.  If ever there was ,1 question which  called for the. united action of both  political parties it i.s the matter of the  Stikine railway. The piesent government of Canada has just now on its  hands a task, such has never yet confronted any aihninstratioti in the history of the Dominion. To police lhe  Yukon properly, lo enforce the Queen's  peace'and British law ami order, and  lo cheek the irresponsible Americanism  which will foi'm so prominent a feature  in the horde of gold���������seeUi*rs. which  will flock into Klondike this season,  might tax, the energies, and resources  of a far wealthier urnrbettor equipped  government th.m that of the Dominion. The stampede will be utipruci-  dented and Ihe natural difficullies of  the country have no'parallel in the  history of gold rushes. Tha I. portion  of the. required railway which Mann to  Mackinzie have contracted to build is  vitally necessary, if the government  is to be able, to remain master of the  situation. To induce them to build  they have received unusually liberal  concessions, some of which certaily  "mnst be modified. ��������� The land grant  alone will pay,for the railway overand  ag-iin and si ill make millionaires out  of the cont.r.-ictens. And this foraline,  which will not give an all-Canadian  route ut. all. The contract must he  amended so as locompel the i-ontract.oi-s  to give the country what, it requires���������  a route whicli will he free from .-ill  possible interfeience hy American olli-  cials or American politicians and will  be open all the year. The. tidewater  terminus of the line must, be itt 11  British Columbia port, and the first  portion built should he between the.  sea and (Jlenora. It can be done and  done this year.' Tho cackle about the  175 miles to be built from- Glenora to  T(^lih_l"!tk"e"by~f5ept'e"inber"-is_all"hiini^  bug. The O." P. R. built from Wwifl  Current to Laggan at the summit of  the Rockies, HO miles in one season.  If Mann to Mackenzie, want their concessions they must earn theni by giving Canada an all Canadian and all  the year round railway to Teslin Luke  hy the close of the season.  The Colonist is out wilh a proposition to provide the very large sum  of money required for the necessary  development uf the provincer by an  issue of land scrip to be redeemed by  the holder taking up mineral lands  within the province, by wliich arrangement its high as five dollars tin  acre could be easily obtained for lauds  sold under it. The Colonist wants to  know how the peoplo of Ihe province  like Lhe idei.. Well we, for one, do  not like it at nil. To .sell the mineral  lands of I he. province for live dollars  an acre in order to raise funds to develope its resources, would he killing  the goose lhat lays the golden eggs  with .1 vengeance. This is the way to  lock the country np in the hands of a  few speculators, a fatal policy. The  best laws with regard to mineral lands  are the poor men's laws, wliich hy  encouraging the exploration of the  hidden minerals and giving grants to  the discoverers on very' easy conditions, have always been found to he  the source of incalculable wealth  to the country and indirectly of vast revenue . to the  government. Regulations which  permithlaiiketgrantshavetheopposite  tfndency and tend hy discouraging  exploration to hinder developement,  and "keep the country hack. IE the  province wants to increase its revenue,  the best thing it can do is to put every  dollar, wliich it can raise, into the developement of Kootenay. The trifling  amount that has already heen spent on  Kootenay hi the hist eight years has  received a return in the shape of in  ci-case of revenue from this dislrict  from about 810,000 to nearly $350,000.  The developement of Kootenay has  been pr.oved to b������ .tt paying investment,  every dollar spent, bringing in big returns. If the government desire an  increase in revenue, let Iheni spend  thousand:' in Kootenay where ihey are  now putting out hundreds and the increase will come. We in Kootenny do  not ask for enough. Look for instance  at the appropriation** asked for by  Trout Lake given in another column.  They shoulel be trebled or quadrupled,  and then every cent of it would come  hack to the government over and over  again.  Mr. Alex. Lucas, police magistrate  nt Kaslo. passed through last night on  his wny to the coast.  Mi-. J. .T.

There are several inleiesling mens  tires before tho Dominion House this  -session. The new franchise assimilates  t.he procedure in Dominion elections to  those in force in each province for  elections to the local legislature and  adopts the provincial voters' lists.  Mr. Charlton has a hill prohibiting the  publication or sale of newspapers on  Sundays, with the exception apparently of religious newspapers, anil  another va ising the age ofcotnse  from 1(5 to IS. There is another  measure proposed enforcing the use  oE an nuionialic device on curs  preventing the connection of the nir  brake being broken without, the knowledge of the engineer and regulating  the. standard height, and use of ladeh'is  on box ctus. Mr. MoMuIIen proposes  to create 11 hoard of Civil Service Supervisors with power to dismiss civil  servants and inspect all books and  offices. Another bill prohibits 11. civil  servant from asking for or accepting  any extra salary, other than a permanent increase. 011 pain of being thereby held to have vacated his office.  There are two bills amending the X.  XV. M. Police pension act in a more  liberal direction, and another making  polling day a holiday in the electoral  district, in which (he election for a  Dominion member, is taking place and  a hank holiday in case of .1 general  Dominion election. A very important  measure is*being fathered by Jlr. Reid  appointing an inter provincial commission to look alter the regulation if  railways. The net renders illegal all  undue preferences, discriminations or  combinations .and provides for the  equalization of rates on the short and  long haul.  The Molsons Bank.

SATURDAY".  FEBRUARY" 20,  1S0S.  MR. BLAIR'S ELUCIDATION.  Mr. Blair's attempt to explain  the grant of a brond guage subsidy  for a narrow guage railway has  -provoked unfavorable comment  even among the party hacks. The  Winnipeg Tribune, which certainly cannot be accused of prejudice,  says that "the Minister of Railways did not .perform his task  well, and exhibited considerable  ignorance of different important  matters when questioned thereon,  showing u lacK of prudence in  going thoroughly into detail." Jt  is an open secret that the Minister  of Interior was not a little disgusted at the manner in which the bill  was introduced by his colleague.  Those who waded through Mr.  Blair's.!"peech cannot but have felt  tbat the minister displayed n. plentiful lack of knowledge of liis subject. He stated that the otoanierH  would go as lar as Fort Wrangel  which is in the "United States territory, but he did not at all know  what was going to happen when  the steamers got there, and the  suggestion thtit the customs regulations of the United States would  be made to apply to transhipment  at that port seemed to strike bun  with not a little surpristi. He did  not know how much a mile it  would it would cost to build the  road, nor whether the Government  enquirers had finished an estimate  of the probable cost. He had no  idea of the value of the laud grant  per acre. He had heard *-nmp-  thicg about other contractors  having offered to do the work, but  didn't remember who they ~.\~ere,  In sh irt his explanation was about  as clean as lirst quality Winnipeg  = mud =���������= =���������--^- -.  THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS  Previous to his departure for Ottawa, ' Mr. T. O. Davis, M. V. ior  ^Saskatchewan, organized a mass  meeting of his supporters in Prince  Albert for the put-pose of  strengthening the bauds of the  <rovernmeut by passing resolutions of confidence iu the0 Premier  and Mr, Davis. The reasons must  have been indeed grave which called for such a desperate rc-olve.  To call together the Liberal Asso-  ���������ciation of Prince Albert, aud to  preserve harmony during the  ���������course of its proceedings, has been  proved by experience to be a task  of enormous magnitude. Mr.  Davis, himself, like the lame general "in history, took the precaution to leave the field of battle before tlie shooting began. Hut the  crisis demanded that the Liberal  Association of Prince Albert  should show a united front to the  ���������enemy, and as the usual fight did  not take place, it is lair to presume  that the meeting consisted of Mr.  Davis' chief wirepullers and the  customary contingent from the  "first families." The resolution of  confidence was of course duly  passed and appended to it were  "seven solid reasons" why :  Resolved that the Liberal Association of Prince Albert is entirelj-  in accord with the policy of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier and his Government. 1st.���������Becaue-e of their doing  away in a great measure with the  high protective tariff that was .so  detrimental to the masses. 2nd.���������  Because of their efforts to consolidate the Empire bv a preferential  tariff with the Mother Country.  UrdJ��������� Because of the assistance  given us in placing our foot! products before the people of Great  Britain. lth.-r Because of their  vigorous immigration policy in  order to people the North \\ est  Territory. 5th.���������Because of their  building the Crow's .Vest Pass  railway in order to secure Canada  ������nd esp������H;iaIIy Manitoba and the  North West Territories tbe markets of the great mining centres of  British Columbia. Oth ���������Because  ���������of the great freight reductions  accrued from the C. P. K. 7th.���������  JJecaube  of the eucrgy  displayed  NlllM-UUrMIKa  in making and administering laws  for the Yukon aud in opening up  the different routes to the gold  fields.  The perusal of the ".seven soliel  reasons" gives the idea that Prince  Albert Liberals wero having a sly  joke at the expense of Sir "Wilfrid.  The "doing away with tho high  protective tariff that was so detrimental to the masses" is in itself a spendid joke, more especially when cominp; from a western  farming community. "The consolidation of the Empire by a preferential tariff with the mother  country" evidently means a sarcastic allusion to the preferential  trade relations which at present  exists with every couutry, blessed  or otherwise on the hubitublo  globe���������except England, while the  reference to the "energetic immigration policy" can only mean the  carloads of dirty and destitute  Galicians who have made the Immigration department ridiculous  throughout the country. The reference to the construction by the  Government of the Crow's .Vest  railway wasahartl hit, but it was  too good to bo suppressed, in view  of the tinte-election promises of  the Liberal candidates aud their  unanimous abuse of thu C. I.', i^  whose "great freight reduction"  are playfully alluded to in the I'ah  reason.  Hut the bust joke of the lot is  that which refers to the energy  displayed by the Government "iu  opening up the different routes to  the gold lields." The deliberate  neglect of the Prince Albert route  by tin. Government is almost as  deeply resented in Prince Albert  its the studied misrepresentation of the Alberta route  is resented iu Calgary and  Edmouton. Then, too, there is a  hidden reference to the Manu-Me-  Kenzde atrocity, with its unnavig-  able rivers, its impossible American customs regulations, and its  boodling indications. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier can enjoy a.joke as well as  most people, and he will no doubt  at once see through the neatly  turned sarcasms of the Prince  Albert politician". They seem to  have a keen sense of humor up iu  Saskatchewan*  with tlie means of the laboring  classes. Similar petitions are  being circulated all thiough the  country.  These farmers 'have not read  J-liberal speeches recently made in  the House of Commons. II' they  hail, tind if they believed them,  they would feel that every Liberal  pledge bad been fullilled, and that  thoy WKt'e unreasonable in fooling  any disappointment over the  record of the present government.  Indian names tire some times  musical, but frequently difiicult of  pronunciation by thu ordinary  white man. When Indian names  are given to places, it would be  well to select those which are less  difiicult than others. "KuThko-  nook " is the name of a now town  in the Ivootenav, and will undoubtedly cause trouble to the  poot of the future. Everybody  litis not the poet instinct of the  Xi'W lU'tinswicker, .lames Hannay,  who long ago wrote tho following  nu the Indian places ut his prov-.  ince:  " Oil speak not of MagaguadavH-  Or beautiful Mcm-ii-ntiici'ok,  Bul. come where Lhe .Skoodoowopoosis  Flows   iluwn   Lo   tlie    Skooduowop-  skouk.*'  BRUTALLY MURDERED  IN   THE    CROWS     NEST    PASS  ���������THE MURDERER ESCAPES  FROM TIIE CA PITA L  Thi} following clipping from tlie  the Ottawa Citizen represents the  view held by a good many moderate people on the back-door arrangement with Mann and  Mackenzie:  "Tlie Conservatives woukl gladly  have supported any reasonable  contract for the building of a railroad to complete an all-Canadian  route to the Yukon.- This iii--position was made manifest by the  expressions of approval which  were drawn from several Conservative newspapers by tlie emasculated statement of the contract  first "vouch-~afed by the Government. It is not true that tho-e  who oppose it tire jealous lest the  contractors should make money  out of it. No one is smnlled-souled  enough to wish disaster co the  enterprise, and no one who has  studied the conditions is the least  bit afraid that such disaster will  result. AVe venture to say that  the contractors themselves are  losing no sleep over the prospect5*.  But this is a bargain that ought  to have two sides to its complc'-  cion. Tho Government ought to  have seen to it that the peuple of  Canada���������the party of the first  part���������got the very beat bargain  that could be secured. To get a  good .feargain it ought to have let  others tender for the contract.  Canadians have no more interest  in \V������u.

The Macleod Ca/.etLe ot February  l.Slh contains the following account ol  a mui'dor coinmiLled last week iu the  Crow's Nest, Pass:  Word has. been received of a cowardly murder which took place in a  -tc-callcd store, (whiskey dive), three  miles west of Hull Head, in the Crow's  Nest Pats, on Friday last.  It. seemed that tsvo or three nipt  were in this dive, winch was being nu  by ti man named Fred Carson, who  w.-ts loaling about Macleod this summer, and did not have a veiy enviable  lepiitntiou here. Tlio man had been  drinking. Carson iitUlrcsscil liiinseli  to an elderly man who was there, anil  tolel him it was bis turn Lo trial.. Tlii.-  -inan treated, and asked how much it  w.is, taking bis purse outof hi.- pocket..  When hu discovered the charge, he  objected and said he woulel not. pay it.

The man dropped and died  lour hours afterwards.  i:.\nr~ii.N"''nu-:x sKici'mi  and went do ivn to "ilcC'illvi'av's camp.

Win. Ogilvie spells it "'Klondike-'  but many per-ous .who believe  themselves to be capable Ivlon-  dictionists. deny that Mr. Ogilvie  should be accepted as a binding  authority on all thiugs Ivloudicu-  lar.   An exchange says that after  caroful consideration ic is compelled to admit that the Mauti-  Mackenzie route i.s "All-Canadian"  except that portion of it which i.s  in United States Territory. It  must be said, however, that it i.s  ������trictly "All-Canadian" in the  s-en--e that Canadians only will  have to pay lor it.  Spaniards are cruel enough, but  not c ever enough to have blown  up the American battleship Maine.  The ship was well guarded, and  any successful plot ti blow her up  would require genius. Those who  have followed the Spanish campaign in Cuba will readily understand that there is not sufficient  genius in the Spanish army to rob  a hen-roost without detection.  A petition signed by one hundred  farmers in the township of llitch-  inbrook, in the county of Huntingdon, <^ue.. has been forwarded  to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, praying  him to eea-e borrowing money, to  suspend subsidies to railways'and  other public works, and reduce  expenditure so that protective  duties may bo reduced and still  furnish sufficient revenue to meet  tiie requirements ot the country.  They point out that they ,1'oneliy  hoped ho would reduce the debt,  or at least keep'it at a standstill,  and they were disappointed when  he increased it by fourteen million  dollars.

The Wagner and Abbott Groups ��������� An  Ej-traordinary Showing of Surface Indications���������A Promising Mine.-  Hilly Creek is a'tributary, of the  north fork of the Lardeau, which it  joins about seven miles from Trout  Luke. At lhe head of this creek is  situated this eeli'brtited Abbott, and  Wagner groups of claims, though the  latter is slightly across ou the Diuii-au  river slope of the. divide.  THK AIIIIOTT OUOUl'  Consists of live elnims, the Hecla. Abbott. King Willinni, Union ami lCinn-  IiKips. There are three distinct, lodes  on the properly, varying from three  to lifli't'ii feet wide and traceable I'or  miles. The gi'iie-.al formation is a line  soft brown slate. Thiough this a belt  of limi'slone intrudes itself continu-  uously for miles and this intrusion is  the foundation of the. district. The  main ledge is from 12 to Iii feet wide  with a N.W. by S.

The country is bare of undergrowth and tiinlier and the outcrop is  so distinct, that il. can be seen with the  naked eye running for miles as  straight and true as a die. The Abbott mine has a very line showing tit  an elevation of 0500 feet, and a tunnel  has been driven ir. over .120 feet to intersect the lead at tt depth of -100 feet.  Besides the main ledge, 400 feet, higher  up anolhei'parallel vein is exposed in  the lime belt, which is regularly and  well defined through the country. 10  feel, wide, half of which is solid galena. One hundred feet higher up  another ledge is exposed from six  inches to a foot in width of galena impregnated with gray ore. These lodes  l-iin right through the four claims.  On the King William in a direct line  with the Abbott the ledge outcrops 80  feet high and 20 feet wide, showing a  fine luniin.-ited quartz,'"i-.-in-ying~gr.-iy  copper and galena. Four hundred  fi'et lower down is another outcrop of  (jiiiirlK three feet wide exposed by a  creek. About tt foot of this is solid  galena carrying high values.

The outcrop of the Duncan is composed of an iron rose quartz currying  seams of solid galena, standing 50 feet  out of the ground and is 50 feet wide.
