THE A UDITOR GENERAL  Itis to be hoped tht t Admiral  Samson will not follow the  disastrous precedent set by his  illustrious tho' unfortunate namesake but will endeavor to keep his  hair on.  PR01IIB1 TION A ND  DRUNKENNESS  As a piece.* of practical evidence  apropos of the coming plebiscite  thu following from the London  (l'-iiglatiel) Spectator is interesting:  "The Times of Wednesday published a  valuable account oi the  working   of   prohibitory  laws   in  Norway.     The peoplo   thero   are  genuinely alarmed  at the spread  ol'    spirit,    drinking,    and    after  trying   the   Gothenburg   system,  which purilieil  tho pot houses, IX  towns resolved to prohibit tho sale  of spirits   altogether.     They did  prohibit   it,  eio.ing   every   spirit  shop, with the result that drunkenness immediately and decidedly  increased.   Not only was a strong  kind of port wine drunk in epian-  tities-, but illicit stills were set up  in   most   buck kitchens, and   the  people drank the raw fresh spirits  with   lamentable   results.   _ Even  the children  were   found   intoxicated, and  tho arrests for drunkenness increased by from 30 to SO  per   cent.      Prohibition,  in   fact,  totally failed, as   it always   will  fail where it is not supported by a  popular    conviction    that    it    is  criminal to drink alcohol.   Then it  succeeds,    and    then    also   it   is  totally unnecessary.    IL is always  forgotten  that the population of  any town  or village can prohibit,  the   sale   of   liquor at   once   and  iinalIy  by   tho   simplest,   of   expedients,���������viz:   Not buying them.  The dram shops will not give away  one   drop.       Drink    is    not   sold  because   it   is   seen,   but   because  it is wished for."  OTTAWA    CORRESPONDENCE  FRANK BARNARD  Brick and Stone Mason  inlluence has again  itself. fn order to be  ____��������� -_ Mr.' Richardson. M. P.,  has kindly consented to withdraw  his government employee garnishee bill.  Party  asserted  obliging  THREE MILES OK TUNNELS  Montreal Star: The attack whicli  the" Liberal   Ministers   appear   to  meditate     upon      the      Auditor  General is more than an   exhibition of the notorious ingratitude  of political  parties���������it is a threat  against, perhaps   the   chief  safeguard   possessed    by   parliament  anel   the   people    for    tlieir   protection from the always possible  encroachments    of     an     always  possible   aggressive   and   corrupt  Ministry.    The  Auditor   General  was not appointed   and   has not  been paid all these  years  to   do  nothing but read the proofs of the  government's cash account.    His  oflice was created for the express  purpose ot  making sure that the  Ministeis would spend the money  voted them  by parliament in the  way -' intended    by    parliament.  Through  the long years of Conservative government, the present i  Auditor General stood at his post  and insisted upon this Ministerial  obedience to the decrees of parliament     amid     the     enthusiastic  applause   of    the    Liberal   Opposition.     The Liberals, from Mills  to McMullen, could find nothing too  eulogistic to say of his work; and  if- ever a   Tory Minister   showed  irritation at the objections of the  Auditor     General,    the     whole  nhalanx   of  Liberal   desi.s   were  banged with indignatiou, and the  government was accused of trying  to   muzzle  the watchdog   of   the  people   in  order    that' it   might  euiDty the public, purse at its will.  It is significant that this government, which has broken theiecord  for extravagance, iinds in less than  civo years that the Auditor General  is in "its way. SirLouis Davies, than  ���������w-h~6i_fu"n~"one~was~louder ir~"the-c_ kit-lays of Opposition in* denouncing  the Tory treasury board  when it  ventured     to     override   the   objections of tno Auditor General, is  now ��������� as    loud    iu    Hailing   that  official     for     daring    to   ornrpst  agnin-'u the payment of SS.0O0 to  the, Quebec  and   Lake   St. John  Railway Company, for which he  w could see no provision in the esti-  mates that alone had received the  approval of parliament.   The case  was certainly  a curious one.     A  railway company, absolutely without any understanding with the  government at- all. certainly without   the   authority   of   a   parliamentary vote, engaged in elTorts  to  attract    immigration   to   thei  district that it serves���������a worthy  work.    After this was all done, an  Order-in-Council       was       passed  granting the company "HS.ODO for  its efforts of this kind "within the  last two   years."      To   this-,   uio  Auditor General   mildly objected  that, there wns no warrant for it  in the supply bill.   A long corres-  ..onderice ensued, in which it wus  brought out  thnt the government  were presuming that they had the  right to use the general  immigration vote in this way, which presumption  the Minister of Justice  and   thetreasury   board   subsequently '.sustained.  When it is rpinembered that the  first Order-in-Couneil did not even  state.that the grant, was made  under the. authority of the general  immigration vote���������giving no  authority for it at all���������it is .surely  plain that if there ever was a ease  in.:which the Auditor General  ���������mould check a pnyment by a  Minister, pending the action of the  treasury board, this was one. Yet  it is for this that he is now being  violently availed by some, at  least of tbe Ministers.  This is a matter in wliich every  tax payer in Canada, is interested.  If the powers of the Auditor  General are reduced, or if the  official " himself is cowed, the  Canadian treasury will be much  less safe than itis today. It is like  the hypocrisy of a party, which  talked economy whpn out of office  .nnd then increased our expenditure when they came into power,  to take advantage of the services  of the Auditor General when they  were the critics of an administra-  A fowl "Jot has been discovered  in Washington.

Afler several months continuous  work, says the Itussland .Miner, the  connection has heen completed between lhe imiiii workings of tho Le  Koi .inc. the tunnel on lhe Black Bear  ground. The connection was made  on Wednesday and the two sections of  the work met without diverging a  hull-'-breadth. The survev was made  by F. A. Wilkin, P.L.S., and the  officers of the Le Hoi are much pleased  with the exactness of. his work. An  upr.iibi* ot about 10 1'eefc was constructed at an angle of 15 degrees from  the wobt !-_."_0 foot level, aud it was at  tliis point that tlie junction with the  Black Bear tunnel was made.  The love! as it now stands from the  shaft, to the mouth of the tunnel on  the Black Bear ground is close to 1200  feet long. The connection was made  not only to improve tho ventilation of  t.he mitii', hulnlso to enable miners to  escape in safety if any accident to the  shaft shoulel hamper egress in lhat  diiection.  Only :i very few feet of work would  be necessary lo drive a shaft from the  Le Koi'-, workings to those of lhe  Centre Star, tlience into the Iron  Mask and from there to the AVar  l"ugle, for the ivoi'Kings of the l.-tlier  minus are already connected. I'roin  the War Eagle it ivould lecpiire only a  feet of work lo connect with the Poor-  liiat), and as the latter already opens  into the .lobie, it would thus extend  the chain of connecting properties  through to the latter mine. The  hori-/.out;il ivot-kiugb- thus connect ed  would measure about three miles; in  length.

Coi'rt'.Kponilcnec.)  Ottawa,   May  2.���������Auditor-General  McDougrl, whose objection!-! to  payments were over rulsd by   the   ministers composing the treasury boat cl,hns  Luken his case"into the public accounts  committee.   The   particular   expenditure di-ctissed is tlmt  of  the  Quebec  and Lake St. .T0I111 Kail way Company,  which got $S,0U0 out of money voted  for immigration.   There  hud been no  contract for this payment.    The  company induced some people to settle on  its hinds for its own benefit,, and afterwards   asked   the   government   for 11  grant out of its immigration   vote for  this service performed during the previous two  years.       The  Minister ot  Justice said that the Governinentcould  ttike the money for carrying families  from one part "of Canada   to another,  if ministers   thought   it  was   for the  benefit of immigration.    They might  even apply the menev tn reward past  meritorious services."   The protests of  the Auditor-General have awakened  the wrath of   Sir   Louis   Davies  who  says that Mr. McDougall is   going   beyond hi? duties. ' A suh������coinniitiee of  the public   accounts committee   has  been appointed to try to   eifuct   some  sort of a settlement of the case.  a S--300 mystehy.  The public accounts committee   has  hnd another interesting matter under  investigation.     Jjiist    May,    Colonel  Domville, M. P., being  then   nboul-, to  go to Kngland with the jubilee expedition, presented an account to the militia department  on   helm If  of   Milton  Barnes, of Hampton. New Brunswick,  for five year. rent, at $0U   a   year',   of  rooms used for the armoury of Colonel  Dnmville's regiment.      A checpio   for  $900 was drawn-in favor of Barnes and  given to Colonel Domville,  who got it  cashed on his own order the   next elay  in Ottawa.    Some  months   after   the  Auditor General   met   the   item and  called attention to the   fact   that   the  cheque had apparently  been-paid to  ���������mother person than the one to whom  it was due.  He ulso showed that there,  was no   receipt from   Barnes -for the  money.    Some months after, a receipt  from 'Barnes wa& produced   acknowledging the receipt of $U0 a year from  F.ed Wedderburn, who hud* the care  of the regimental arms.    As Wedderburn hud an allowance of  $300 to $1S0  a vear for    the    care    of   arms, it is  thought     that     he    paid     the    rent,  from year to year, and that  the   $300  paid to the Colonel is   yet   to   be   accounted for.    Colonel Panel, who gave  the money to Colonel Domville,   is exceedingly penitent.     He. admits that  the payment wai irregular.   . He says  that he will never do the   like   again.  For the reFthe* sorrowfully testifies: "I  confess that 1 felt at the'time   the   influence of a. member  of   Parliament."  But. Colonel Panel  has  one   comfort.  The account, paid bears the initials "R.  .1. 0.," which means that  the  member  of parliamentralso   got   in   his  work  with Sir Richard, tlie acting minister  of militia.

Mr. Mulock has explained to Mr.  Gillies that his plan for introducing  11 three cent imperial postage rate last  Christmas was nipped in the bud by  the action of the home government.

A SMALL TIGHT  Havana, May 0.���������At half past 8  o'clock yesterday morning two United  States cruisers which wero pursuing  the Spanish schooner Santiago, hound  from Yucatan with suit fish, approached the" Vedado batteries, which  lired at them when they were about  live miles off .the shore. Six shots  were discharged at tho ships. A local  paper says that one of the projectiles  carried off the smokestack of one of  the United State-*, cruisers, which was  in the rear, and another projectile fell  upon the deck of the other cruiser.  The 'Americans roplied with twelve  shots, but the piojectiles lell two  miles off the batteries. The cruisers  then leU'eated nuclei' a full head of  steam.

A  running fight followed, the Montgomery drawing lhe Spaniatd towards  Sampson's fleet.

Further and complete accounts  of  Admiral Dewey's victory   at Manila  "haveyiust-been-ieceived.-���������Vindicates  that the Spaniards were quite unpre-  paied and were taken  completely  by  surprise.   It   is believed the Spanish  ships diel not even have steam up and  .were completely at the mercy of the  American battleships which had come  ujion theni so suddenly and unexpectedly.   Admiral   Dewey's orders were  to "capture   or  destroy   the   Spanish  fleet.    Never  were  instructions executed in so complete a lashion.   At the  end of seven hours there was absolutely nothing left of the Spanish lleet but  a few relics.   When  it. is considered  that the Spaniards lost over (KX) men  in killed and wounded,  that all their  ���������sbips.   amounting   to fourteen,  were  <deG(roved,     and 'that    their    naval  .arsenal at Cavite was also destroyed  with its defences,  it will become ap-  iparentthat the victory of tbe  United  States Commodore is one of the most  ���������complete and wonderful achievements  in the history of naval warfare.   Not  a man o"n board the   U.  S. Heet was  killed, not a ship damaged to any extent and only six men slightlv injured  ou hoard the Baltimore.    The Span-  .._-*-! s fought with desperate bravery.  When  the  commander  of  the  Don  Antonio de Ulloa found she was so  lorn by U. S. shells that he could not  keep her afloat he nailed her colors to  ���������the mast and she sank with all hands  fighting to the   last.   Her  hull   wns  completely riddled and her upper deck  had been swept clean by the awful fire  of  the I'nitPd States guns, but the  ' Spaniards,   though   their   vessel was  sinking    beneath    them,    continued  working the guns on .ber lower dejek  (it;til   she sank beneath  the*  waters.  -_Scit''inK further of a reliable nature  has b*'en  received legarding the   re-  ���������noi'ted     engagement     between     the  squadrons noith of Monte Cristi.

The authority for the statement is  fully acquainted with Admiral ;Sam-  son's plans and his remark would  seem to indicate that the admiral  having failed to iind the enemy at the  place expected, had turned his attention to an alternative project.

The banks of the Columbia, on wtiicli river the lown is situated, have  been the stage upon which strange scenes have been displayed and wild and  daring exploits performed by the thousands who entered this district during  tho '07 gold boom in the Big Bend.  "Revelstoke is probably one of the oldest towns in the interior. And it  wns not until this title question was settled that Revelstoke rcallv began to  forge ahead, commercially and otherwise. Growth was slow until 1897, but  tho old timers and newcomers had great confidence in the town and s.arteil in  to make it a mining centre worthy of note. .'.  The   C.  P. R. is   concentrating all its   principal wotkshops on the''  western division al Revelstoke.   Kevelstoke is not only a mining town, but ia  now and will lv_ increasingly so in the future a railwav point of considerable  importance in the C. P. R. system and a distributing centre for the business of  lliu rich mining districts included m the section popularly known as North  Koolenay.   Its impotianee in  these connections is due to its unique geographical position.   Sealed in a beautiful open valley at the point of intersection  of the Columbia river anel  tho C. P. R. main line, it, commands the passes  running north anil south, to the famous gold fields of the Big Bend and the  lich mineral leads-   of the Lardeau, while on  the east up' the lllecillewaet  nnother district of great prospect is being oppned up.   The town is the point .  of junction of the main line and the Arrowhead branch of the C. P. It,, by  which access is gained to the South Kooten_y by rail aud steamer.   Another  line of steamers will make Revelstoke their starting poinffor the Big Bend,-  for which country it is at present the sole outfitting point and base of supplies.'  Thus by the mere force of geographical position alone Revelstoke has forged-  to t.he front until the little mining camp of a few years ago has become a town  of considerable,importance to the business of the province.- y.    -        ' ." ..  The mining industry is still in its infancy, but with the careful expenditure of capital in development work will grow to laige dimensions.  '_   Large aieas of land  in close proximity to the town,are covered with  limner suitable for lumber, but probably just as valuable: as tire wood, there',  being no coal deposits discovered near at hand as vet.   This land when cleared  is proving-to be exceptionally line farming and gardening land,   and-the.  demand for produce is always many times larger than the supply, train loads"  being inipot ted from other points every season.   This should be taken into *  consideration by intending settlers. * ��������� ,*-". -",-���������-.,  Across the river from Revelstoke an excellent clay exists for the mak*> '  ing of brick in vast quantities, which commands a high price at anv time. ,  ' The town enjoys many advantages: A fine,', healthy climate���������the  death rnte being exceedingly low���������good ivater.Tsupplied by a'system of water  works, from the mountain side just north of the town, underlying which is a  stratum of gravel that ensures a natural drainage.
