The question on everybody's tongue  just now is " Has Wnr.beun ('b-claretl ?"  11 is apparently the popular impres-dun  tliat fi formal ��������� declaration of some  kind or another always precedes active  hostilities. Nothing can be more unlike the teachings" .of history ou the  subject. In fact da la _eolleelet"l by the  -Brii isli���������War -ofiicii~go"~" i~Tsh~o\v"l bat"  with the exception of the Fr.-mco-  Pnwsiuii wnr of 1S70, not one single  war of this'present century bus been  actually preceded by a formal ilcrlnr-  atioii. In ISOt the British fleet -swooped down nn Spain without a word of  warning, while British vessels were  actually being provisioned in Sp.lnish  ports, "in 1S07 the great buttle nf Copenhagen in which Nelson destroyed  the Danish fleet was fought before the  Danish government had received the  least notification thnt Great Britain  entertained any hostile feelings towards Denmark. Such measures may  perhaps be justified in the ease of a  nation lighting us Great Britain then  was for her very existence. . But much  less excusable instances cun be adduced. In 1S12 lhe United States seized  all British vessels lving in her ports in  Apiil, while Congress did not declare  win-till J une. Tlie wav with Mexico  in 1S-I8 hud been carried on for two  iiiunlhs before it tvas formally declared. The Crimean war had commenced  over fi year before uny uctu.-il delur-  ntioti wus made. Several other in-  stances might ha adduced to shew  I hat, several wars have been commenced and finished without a tenth purl  of the declnrntinii that bus in the ruse  of tliis Cuban episode been already  given. We are much more likely to  bear of some swift and sudden attack  devised und curried out by one side or  the other than of a f.-rnial declaration  of war just now.  Let Us Hope So.  Revelstoke has a daily paper. The  fiist number of tbe Daily Ukuald  appeared nn Tuesday, and promises to  be a permanent instil ul ion.

FINANCE MINISTER FIELDING'S  STATEMENT  IN THE COMMONS  THE PREMIER  ANNOYED WITH  MULOCK  WEDNESDAY.     APRIL   21),     1898.  CANADA  AND THE WAR  At the time of writing, it would  _eem as if war between the United  States and Spain were inevitable.  The ill wind would undoubtedly  blow more good to Canada than to  ' any   other   country.      The   St.  Lawrence route would haye to be  utilized  lor  the  transport  of   a  large part of the trade to and from,  the United States.  Ships that now.,  ply to Boston and Portland would  go to Halifax aud St. John.   The}  Canadian railways would do   an-  enormous       business       carrying  fi eight from Canadian seaports to  the    American    cities.      Canada  -would be   called upon to.supply  everything she could  furnish to  the    United    States.     In/, fact,'  America is lucky in having such a  handy back door entrance to her  own.territory as the St. Lawrence  route affords.  A PUTTY POLITICIAN  R. W., Jameson, M. P. for  Winnipeg, has fallen foul of his  own party owing to his desire to  account for his position on the  Yukon bill. This is how Mr.  Jameson explains how he came to  support the government on the  broad gauge subsidy bill: '/When  I got to "Ottawa and found the  whole 13 Cabinet Ministers in  favor of the bill, I came to the conclusion that they, having, all the  necessary and best information,  were in a better position to understand the true merits of the case  than I was on the slight information that I had: and besides when  such men as Sir Richard Cartwright and Sir Louis H. Davies  strongly supported the bill I felt  oafe in doing the same," If Mr.  Jameson's view of his duty as a  "member-of parliament-is? corrects  his journey to Ottawa "was not  worth the expense which  attended it. In tact all the  members of the party might have  stayed at home, if they had as  much confidence in the cabinet as  Mr. Jameson, had. But it looks  as if they hadn't.  There is all the difference in the  world   between   the   preferential  tariff policy of last year and the  preferential tariff policy of   this  year.   The policy of hist year is uo  more.     It  olfered   favored tariff  terms to all countries, British and  foreign, whose tarilV on Canadian  goods should seen to the Minister  of Customs to bo as   low as our  tariff was ou the   goods of  that  couutry.   The Ministers were told  last session by Sir Charles Tupper  that this tarilf measure could not  be operated, as the British treaties  would require Canada to give all  the foreign   nations  which   wero  parties to it tlie same  terms, no  matter whether their duties were  high or low.   This view was set at  naught by the  government.   Sir  Louis Davies who made the legal  argument roared out the question  at Sir Charles:    "Can he.produce  the opinion of a prominent lawyer,  or   even  of  a  fledgeling   lawyer  endorsing      the       absurd      and  ridiculous    statement    that   this  resolution   is   unconstitutional?"  A  year  has   passed.     Sir   Louis  repeated his argument iu England  and it was condemned at  sight.  All   the  nations   came in on the  favored    terms    whether     their  duties  were   high   or  low, as Sir  Charles aud Mr. Foster said they  would.   Mr. Fielding was at pains  in his budget speech to  say that  they "had doubts" last year of the  soundness    of    their    case,    but  thought it best to make the most  of it.     Hereafter when Sir" Louis  is most confident in tone, when ho  declares   that   those   who  differ  from him aro absurd or ridiculous  or Iledgelings, we shall know that  he has doubts as to the correctness  of his own position.  The scheme of this year is a' preference within the Empire,  applicable to colonies-whose tariff  is low. Exception is mnde in favor  of the British "West Indies, whose  tarilf is not low. The government  concludes that Canada can afford  to deal generously with these  colonies which are appealing, to  Great Britain for some relief iu  their depressed _ condition. The  other dependencies which come in  for'the preference are New South  Wales and British India. No concession of any kind has been  obtained by the Canadian government from any of these countries.  Not one of them admits a single  article of Canadian produce at a  lower rate of duty than is placed  ou a like product of the United  States. Mr. Fielding says that our  one sided preference policy has  been received with great satisfaction in England and other  countries which are favored. This  is perhaps not surprising. But if  he could in some of his bargaining  obtain for Canadian goods tbe  advantages which Canada offers  the goods .of other parts .of the  "Empire the aiiuouucement woulcf  be heard with satisfaction not  only iu Euglaud, but in this  country also.  The Laurier government is-uot  making the savings - bank  depositors rich.  Money will soou bo scarce iu  Ontario if the two parties continue to lock up the visible supply  of cash in the S1.000 deposits  which must accompany each  election petition.  Which Shows a Largely Increased Expenditure, Increased Taxes and  Increased National Debt���������The Estimated Expenditure for Next Year���������  The Promised Economy-Sugar Duties  Ottawa, Apri 11.���������Mr. Fielding  made his budget) speech last week.  Here are some of the announcements:  Tho net debt when the Laurier Government came in was !?2.>S,l07,-i:i2. At  the end nf lust June, when the first  llscal year of lhe new system closed,  it hnd increased $3,1)11,1(K. and was  .S2(il,.")*lS,i~)l.).~). Nine months more bus  brought it up to ������201,500,000. Mr.  Fielding estimates u further growth  during the next three months' whicli  will make the increase for the vear'  ���������ji 1,500,000, and .*ri7,50(),OC0 in the "two  years.  The expenditure on ordinurvuecount  was in the last veur of tbe late Government, !i-:.0..) 19,112. In Mr. Fielding's  lirst year he raised the cost of governing the country to $38,319,750. This  vear is only tlirec-quurlci's gone, but  the Finance M blister is able to give  un almost exact estimate of the expenditure, which he places at $38,750,-  000. lie. also submits an estimate for  tbe year commencing three months  hence, the money for which must be  voted this session. The amount asked  for tlmt, year is $30,121,000. Thus Mr.  Fielding spent in his first year $1,-100,-  000 over the outlay of tho previous  your. He is spending in his second  year $300,000 more than in his lirst  and expects to spend in his third year  $371,000 more than in his second year,  or more than two millions in excess of  the amount required for the public  services under the bite government.  "It would not be difficult," said Sir  Wilfrid ut Toronto just before the  election, "lo economise one, ttvo or  three millions."' Air, Fielding in the  ligures quoted above, shows that il is  still easier not to economise.  TIIK   DETAILS  The increases in  expenditure   cover  nearly the whole range of the administration.      Charge   of    management,  civil government, justice, police, legislation, immigration, quarantine,* pensions,    fisheries,'   Geological   survey,  Indians, customs, Post ollice and miscellaneous are among the items oL.'iin-  crease.     There   fire   somo   decreases,  but they number only one third of-lhc  increases, uud the net result is as stated  above.   Mr. Fielding grew eloquent on  Tuesday ns he told of the great prosperity Canadians   fire   now enjoying,  chieliy by reason   of  the   good   crops  und higher price   for   farm   products.  Certain manufactures arc also prosperous, but. Jlr. Fielding did nol designate  them, or il would have been seen that  tbey arc the ones which have been  let  alone in the lurilt changes.     The  finance minister showed that exports find  imports have' greatly  increased,   that  the price of Grand Trunk und C. P. R.  shares have- gone   up   in   the market,  that all the railways are carrying more  freight than usual, find that bank   deposits and bank circulation are  larger  .than for many   years   past.     lie also  dwell upon the value   to a   country of  Yukon und Kootenay mineral wealth.  It is one elfect  of   the   general   commercial activity that   tbe   revenue of  last year     tvns   $1,'-11,000  more  than  in     the     year     before,     while     Mr.  Fielding   counts   on   $1,500,000  more  this year than lust year,  or $2,700,000  morel ban Mr. Foster had  iu   his  last  year, and Mr. Fielding only counts on  a   surplus  of  the  same   amount   this  year:   we    may    discover  where   be  would be today it the revenue expansion by increased raxes .and  increased  business had not taken place.    He will  tnke in during tbe two years S3,000.CXXJ  more than the revenue of 1800 would  produce, and vet on his  own  showing  tvill add S7,500,000 to the  public  debt.  - - -THE <.IS._E.VT ECO-SQ-MY     ���������    -    -  THE YUKON PROBLEM  The Auditor General thinks his  staff are not paid well enough.

There is one part of the world at  least where bicycles do not meet  with approval. This is Morocco,  where the Grand Vizier has steadfastly tabooed the use of "such  dangerous instruments."  The Globe Says There Would be Strenuous Objection to Large Expenditure  _ -Toiionto, April 11.���������The Globe says:  "Tlie propriety-of making a direct  money grant towards it railway across  some portion of Alaska is being urged.  We. feel sure there will be a strenuous  objection throughout the country lo  uny proposition involving a consider-  nble draft on the treasury for a railway into the Yukon countrv. It looks  as if a close watch on development s is  about fill thai the Government can do  for some time, us fur as a railway from  lhe coast is con'-'ci ired. It, maybe expected that immediate steps will be  taken to gather immediate information with reference to :i permanent  route into that country from the inland rather than from the const. Of  the [inhabilahiliiy of the Peace river  district there i.s evidence that deserve,  lo be considered reliable, und in making towards the headwaters of rivers,  whose united volume makes t.he  Yukon, the railway would touch  watercourses which, during the season of navigation would bring an enormous amount of territory in touch  with civilization.

Mention was made la.**t week of one  notable saving. The Finance Minister  saves 8210.000 this year by the lirst  reduction in the savings bank rate of  interest. It was so much easier than  cuttim? down expenses in other w.ivs  that Mr. Fielding has repeated the  performance, and next year the O'ov-  ernment, will reduce the expenditure  a, round half a million by the simple  process of witholding one p������-r cent,  trom the interest allowed to depositors.

Tbe House of  Representatives yesterday, alter one  of the most exciting aiid memorable  days in ils hi .lory, by a vote of 322 to  IU, adopted" fi resolution which nine  tenths of its members believe makes  war with Spain inevitable. This is  a fact which was grimly commented  upon yesterdav by the* members, us  they spoke of Lhe future, that every  war ih which the United Stales hnd  been engaged begun in April, and that  yesterday was the anniversary of the  fall of Sumter, which' aroused Lho  patriotic fervor ot the norl h and made  four years of civil strife.

Although  only nineteen members, composed ot  fifteen Democrats, three Republicans  and ono Populist, dissented * upon the  final vote", -the proceedings- were  marred by a bitter find acrimonious  display of.purlizan feeliug. Adams.of  Pennsylvania, the acting chairman of  the committee on foreign affairs,  entered the House with the report.  Tho Republican committee on rules  immediately held a session to formulate a rule under which the Ilouse  should operate, and il wus decided  that theie should be u delmtfc of 20  minutes on either side.. At 3 p.m. the  Speaker recognized Adams, the acting chairman of the. foreign alfairs  committee.

The  President is hereby authorized to use  the land find naval forces of the  United States to execute the purpose  of this resolution."  London, April 11.���������The Times commenting editorially- this morning on  the resolutions submitted yesterday,  (Wednesday, to Congress, says: They  ambodv demands which cannot be addressed to a sovereign power without  rendering negotiations and compromise impossible. Even if they do not  amount toa declaration of war, the  resolutions are accompanied by violent and offensive reports offering  gratuitous provocation to tbe Spanish  Government and people. In the eyes of  the civilized world, the American  case cannot but be prejudiced by tbe  manner in which it is now presented;  We doubt, after vestorday's scenes,  whether Congress is a tit body to deal  with a great national issue or to act as  an avenger of wrong.

A similar exchange occured a week  ago us a preliminary to the joint note  of the grout powers, and was presented lo President McKinley mildly  urging a peaceful settlement with  Spain.

Then,  again, I claim for old trees you will often get. fruit the second year, whereas  you would havo to wait ten years for  young stock purchased from tbo nursery.  All limbs abovo four inches should be  sawed oif and painted or waxed ovar  and ono sucker allowed to grow ouo sea-  sou, which will bo largo enough to graft  next spring.

By'so doing tho* grafts many  times will muko from four to six feet  growth .thi) lirst season. ���������  I always uso what is tormed cleft  grafting,' and I seldom fail to mako  iheni all live. I prefer one bud to a  scion whero others uso two and somo  throe. If tho latter plan is used, I would  advise after thoy have slm-icd to rub off  all but one bud and leavo tho lower ono  on tho ont'sidd- By so doing you will  grow :i straight shoot. The second season thujiMi-ili branch out; then tho treo  can lio formed to suit tho grower.  Tlio illustration is of a pear treo that  I advised treating iu this manuer threo  years ago. Last summer this troo bore  threo bushels of pears, which was just  2}6 years from timo of grafting. Tho  center of tho treo was griifted ono year  later ou sutlers that came.out aftor tho  treo was cut back. This was done,to Jill  in the center to mako a nicely shaped  tree."

The Le Conto "P������ar. ���������  Since the advent of the LeContepear,  pear growing iu tho south has become a  commercial success, which cannot be  said of pear .growing as a rule whero  couflucd to the old varieties of the Eu-k  ropean stock. The iutroduction of this  pear and thoKieffer marks a new era in  pear growing. Thoy aro both believed  to be accidental hybrids between the  sand pear of Asia and somo of the varieties of the European race. Iu regard to  the Kieffer,. the saud pear and theBart-  letfc wero grown together, so close, iu  -fact,���������that���������the^-braiiches ��������� interlaced.-  Among the seedlings of this sand pear  tho-Kieffor originated on the grounds of  a gentleman of thai name. The origin  of tho Lo Conto is unknown, but it is  evidently a product of a -imilarciroum-  stance.  It is found to bo as healthy and vigorous au' tho original saud poar. No  disease uo fur hus ' troubled it, and the  usual iusccts that follow tho pear seem  to avoid it. Under somo circumstances  tho quality is very superior,- but this requires skill to bring about. In a general  way tho quality is abovo tho average of  pears, but a special featuro of great val-  uo is that thoy can bo siiippod in barrels  liko apples, a treatment which no other  pear will staud. It is rcmarkablo that  attempts do not Koeih to havo beou made  to produce a moro extended list of varieties from tliere. Although hybrids of  two vory distinct species, they produce  seed abundantly, lt i.s lordly necessary  to uso tho word "although," for horticulturists generally well understand  that tho dictum of some scientific mcu  that hybrids aro necessarily sterile is  utterly absurd. _-Meehan's Monthly.

If your trees, which are 30 to  35 feet high, havo uot-"had much pruning, thoy would rcquiro a good topping.  But, yon should not cut back large limbs,  ns this lays tho foundation of ugly looking, mutilated trees. Confine tho pruning to Ench branches as are no more  than two to threo inches! in diameter.  You may shorten all of this size aud  less, cutting away longths of four to six  feet or moro anywhere about tho tree.  Though such trees may be trimmed to  advantage now, the very best timo is  when they are 'in the midst of their  growth, iu early summer. The ends of  the growing shoots nipped off then sends  out the sido ones at ouco, and hushiuoss  is secured 'in a short time. But this  plan cau only be followed with smgll  trees or with others that have received  annual prunings, as it is but the shoots  of tho same season that are to b_> pruned.  ���������C(~u~itry Gentl-naau.  once, but-, good will has been  An Ov<?rlool<ed  Feature of ..'. . /  Newspaper Advertising  An impoi-tunt, though often overlooked featuro of  newspaper advertising is the good feeling, whicli a pleasant  invitation, neatly placed in type, produces. Acquaintanceship  between our readers and advertisers is begun at the very  first time yuur advertisement, appears.. '' The invitation .may  not alwttys be accepteil at  established.  With what a feeling of ease anti serenity one enters  the store or hotel that is advertised; he is welcome ; he has  been invited to come. With what confidence you inquire for  an advertised article: the proprietor himself*believes in it,  wants you to try it; is interested in your getting it. This  very good will, this appreciation of .courtesy, this satisfaction  in being pleasantly asked, has been the foundation of many a  successful business. . ;  / - "i - ' .  Newspajjcr    advertising    is    something    more   than  ���������  spending money in the newspapers.    If, properly done it is  the  making  oi' acquaintanceship  and'friendship  tliat will  surely be of grettt value in time to come.      .  Would  yuu  have your business  or! your article  so  favorably regarded?     Make  it known..    If it  is  worthy,    .  people will appreciate being asked. '.- ���������  And if you desire to talk to the-buying classes of   "  .North Kootenay, it can only be done thoroughly through the  columns of THE HERALD, its circulation being at least four  times  larger than its competitors  in  this.' district.      THE  HERALD gives the news while it i.s news, and is thelargest  paper and only semi-weekly in North -Kootenay. * The wrong  way to compete with your fellow. business man is to.drop '-'���������  advertising.    In this up-to-date age you'Jmust liiie up-with .--~;  your competitors, or the time will soon .cohie when you. will'-.���������  sec where you made the mistake���������of letting your opponent ���������- --.  do all the advertising.
