FOSTER 0N_THE WEST  What the Member for York Has to  Say About Various Interesting  Questions  Hon. Geoige E. Foster, ex-finanro  minister, returned to Ottawa, on the  5lh inst., from an extended tour of the  west. He is enthusiastic over the  mining prospects and speaks most  hopefully of the. great west. Ho said:  I made quite an extended tour of the  west, almost entirely in reference to  business and iiiining interest. I went  in by the Crow's Nest Pass as far as  Wardner and found the road bed in  remarkably good order and a grade  nowhere greater than 1 per cent. The  scenery is much wilder than by the  northern route. The road will be  easily operated in '|Winter. From  Wardner I visited Fort Steele, thence  t,o Nelson and Sandon, and on-to Kossland.  Mining interests are developing on  tho whole most satisfactorily in all  these camps, though less rapidly in  the East. Kootenay, which hud been  almost without needed transport facilities. Niuv owners are working  their property and several important  strikes have been made. Some mines  are already assured in that district  and much activity is shown in prospecting and bonding. It is believed  that copper will play an. important  part in the coming product of Enst  Kootenay. The rails are laid from  the C. P.,R. to the coal mines near  Fernie. and the coke ovens are. being  constructed at the latter place. Most,  satisfactory development, is taking  place at the. other camps. Less is  being .aid about Nelson and the Slocan ' th.ui Rossland, hut equally good  work is being done. The sale of the  Centre Star at Rossland has stiffened  the stocks of all the active, well conducted companies there, and the results are certainly very favorable. I  should not be surprised to see half a  dozen - dividend -payers in the camp  before 'next July.'-thoiigh of course it  takes time and money to develop a  first class claim into a mine. The best  indications in the districts are the  good work being done and the settled  general "conviction that the time of  mere experiment is ended and that remunerative action is now a matter of  degree alone. The C. P. R. is showing  remarkable activity and making extraordinary expenditures to provide  adequate facilities for transport and  smelting, aiul it is safe to sny that it  is keeping even '.villi the situation. It.  is pushing through to -the boundary  country with great energy. Arid mining interests there are feeling the spur  of coming transportation. I have  said nothing of the many other promising districts, simply because I did  not-persoii.iIly_vi'iit-tlieiii.i__They_are-  all showing more or less improvement.  ��������� I heard sninethinar about politics in  British Columbia. The singular action  of the, governor set men's tongues  wagging, and so fnr as I could learn  this course was ciinilemned on all  sides. He dismissed Mr. Turner, who  had a cle-ir majority, on the ground  that, he did not possess the confidence  of the people, and summoned a gentleman who had neither a seat nor a,  following. He then came buck to the  leader of the minority party, whose  selection he allows lo administer the  parliament and draw salaries, without  even going to their constituents for  endorsement. Wliat- his next move  will be no one knows, but it is pretty  certain to be until her blunder. If he  i.s being advised from Ottawa, one  must question the wisdom of the advice given: if lie is reiving on himself,  the. matter is easily iinder-tood.  Meanwhile charges, and serious  charges, are being bandied about between the governor. Ins aspiring son,  and tho lender of the late government,  in a most uiipdifyitig way, and people  are everywhere asking "where they  are at" in constitutional government.  What, will be the mil come no one  knows ��������� probably in the end ait-  arrangement of parties on "straight  party lines. Dominion politics are  being widely discussed ir. British Columbia and the west, and the Conservative parly is full of hope and  activity. Organization is being undertaken with energy, and when the next  trial of strength comes there will bo  an undoubted change in representation. I addressed in British Columbia  meetings at Nelson and Rossland with  XV. A. McDonald and Mr. Daly. Associations have been formed in these  towns. In Calgary, Moospjaiv. Indian  Head and Whitewood enthusiastic,  gatherings were addressed by Messrs.  Davin, Senator Porley. Premier Hatil-  tain and myself. The party of broken  promises "has without doubt lost  ground .in the Northwest. The chief  evidence of Liberal activity I noticed  were the frantic, efforts of the press to  discount the allcred ina1-ud~i~.iiist~.il.-  tuui of Yukon affair."1, the hegira of  high officials from the frozen norlh to  more southern climes, and the flitting.,  to and fro from the private car Cumberland, in whose curl."lined recesses  were dimly visibly the burly form of  the Liberal whip, the Napoleonic  minister of the interior, and sundry  othev of the faithful on pleasure or  profit bent.  TRUCK MT  CASE  The First of the Kind Tried in Brook-  ��������� lyn���������The Case Was Thrown Out  The Tract act caso which was tried  before XV. IT. Cooper and G. C. McGregor, J. P.'s, at Brooklyn last week  was decided against the plaintiff with  cost. The case was entitled Crozier  v. Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson, an  action for wages. The plaintiff, n  blacksmith, sues the defendants, contractors, for balance of one month's  wages, $71.35, due 31st of August, and  for which tlie defendants gave a time  check and refused to pay till the regular pay day, the 20th Sept. Horace  Buck, solicitor, appeared for the plaintiff, and B. F. Woodman appeared for  the defendants. After some argument,  by consent of both parties, the information was amended and it was  agreed that the case should be tried  under the Tract act. The only evidence taken was that of the plaintiff.  Mr. "Woodman, solicitor for the defendants, claimed the court had no  jurisdiction and filed the following objection:  Sections 1 to 0 inclusive being the  only ones in this act bearing upon this  particular case relating to the relation  of employer and employee, and especially mentioned in section 10, that  this case cannot be tried by this court,  they not having jurisdiction owing to  the fact that the claim of lhe plaintiff  is for labor performed more than 3  miles from any incorporated city or  town. We therefore ask that the  case be dismissed with costs to plaintiff.  Mr. Buck objected on the ground  that the objection' was loo late and  should have been taken before the  evidence was gone into, and argued  that the line on which the plaintiff  worked was a continuation and part  of works undertaken .in an incorporated city.  i The court adjourned for an hour,  when the following decision was  given:���������   ���������      . -       ��������� '-   ��������� ���������.,'''  We have carefully considered the  evidence ���������' and the points raised on  both sides. As to the questions raised  by Mr, Woodman for the defence, and  objected to by Mr. Buck for the plaintiff, it is unnecessary for us to go .into  as it was part" of the argument for the  defence and would in any case have  been necessary for us to consider in  arriving at a decision.  It therefore only remains for us tn  consider the caso on its merits, and we  have, after most careful consideration,  no alternative on the evidence but to  arrive at the following conclusions:  l������t. No part of the work on contract  held by defendant is within 3 miles of  aiiy incorporated city or.town  2nd. The contract of Burns & Jordan, whereon the plaintiff was working���������as admitted by his own evidence  ���������is noi within 3 miles of any incorporated city or town.  Section 10 of the Truck act, 1803,  states: "This shall only apply to any  workman employed altogether, or in  part, or in works or undertakings situated wholly or in part or. any incor.  porated city or town,or within 3 miles  thereof.  Those facts being established, and  as the plaintiff rested his case on the  said act, we are obliged to dismiss the  complaint, costs of court to be paid by  plaintiff.  W. H. Coori-n. J. P.  G. C. Mc.-Gitntioii. .1. P.  REVELSTOKE^ FUTURE  A   London,    England.   Times   Corres  pondent   Places Revelstoke as One cf  the Five Great Cities of Canada  Tlio London, England, Times, the  greatest and most influential newspaper in the woi Id today, has an  excellent 3 column article from one of  its correspondents on British Columbia, dealing on the early history of  the country, whicli is most interesting, and also on the mining, lumber  and fish industries of the province.  The article winds up as follows:  Vancouver is fast becoming tho  largest business centre of British Columbia-. The Canadian Pacific railway  has of course done much to bring this  about. At the present time there is a  noticeable difference betwiien'tlie people of Vancouver and Victoria (the  capital of the province). In the latter  place, which is the seat of government  and largely residential, owiug'to a  number of more or less wealthy people having-found it a peculiarly beautiful place to live in, there is not much  enterprise; the inhabitants are quite  content, and very rightly so. to live  at ease, having in many cases won  their fori lines with hard work as miners in Cariboo,' and desire to finish  their days in 'comfort. Consequently  lhey do not feel tempted to risk their  incomes iu new mining ventures. For  this reason the country must "look to  outside sources for the introduction of  capital to develop the various mining  districts. There are certainly not suflicient rich people in the country to do  it. I feel persuaded thnt Vancouver,  possibly Revelstoke, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal will be the great  cities of Canada. Victoria I do not  think will largely increase, as it is  unfavorably situated as a distributing  point. I am rather inclined to think  also that in time of war with any big  nation , which could operate on the  Pacific coast, Victoria might be placed  in a very awkward..pos'itioi~-".whereas  Vancouver could easily be protected,  and has'all the makings of an excellent port. An abundant supply of  fuel for all steam and manufacturing  purposes can always be obtained from  the mines of Vancouver Island, and it  is probable that the same coal deposits  will be found extending tinder the  mainland. In all these conditions it  is not difiicult to' foretell with practical certitude that, as British Columbia develops. Vancouver will become  a very large and important town.  HELP THE_ NEEDY  Revelstoke  Citizens  Will   Respond   to  the Call  The fire which oVem-red at New  Westminster last Saturday night has  completely destroyed the business  portion of the city." ruining hundreds  and leaving maiiy deslittite. The  sympathy of'every citizen of British  Columbia has gone out to the people  of New Westminster iu Iheir'hour of  aHliction. and with it the generous  support from the sister cities and  towns of'the province, as well as from  Lhe citizens across the border, in the  way of cash and supplies for the help  of Lhosi! who have been sufferers  from this great conflagration. Victoria. Vancouver, Kamloops, Rossland  anil Nelson and other point.- have con-  U.bated liberally.

All  subscriptions, large or small, will be  received gladly and acknowledged in  the columns of the Hhhaui.  Drowned in Great Slave Lake.  Frank Hoffman, of Sandon, B. C.  wus drowned on Great Slave Lake on  July 17th by the boat in which he was,  being swamped. Hoffman was accompanied on the trip by his wife and  Messrs. Joe Sneider and J. A. Hoff-  myer, of Sandon. Tliey had a boat  loaded with about 2,500 pounds of supplies. The boat was driven on to the  rocks near the shore nnd was destroyed and the cargo lost. Hoffman was  the only one drowned. Mrs. Hoffman  and Sneider joined another Yukon  bound party and went on. Mr. HofT-  niyer returned to Edmonton.���������Edmonton Bulletin.

Such was the sad inelligence brought  lo town   yesterday  afternoon   by  the  remainder of the crew who started up  the Columbia Thursday morning, they  having came down on the west side of  the river under many difficulties.

A RAILWAY BADLY NEEDED  Lardeau Country Would Be   Quickened  by Transportation  Frank Hannn, of Trail, says the  Rossland Miner, who has- spent most  of the summer in the Liirdeau country  with a view to getting hold of some eif  the belter properties there, is in town  having assays made on the samples  which he brought out with him. Mr.  Hanna says that on the whole the Lardeau country is very quiet, nnil there  is not likely to be any immediate liveliness until transportation is assured.  The C.P.R. i.s surveying a line from  Arrowhead down Troul Lake to the  town of Lardo. at the head of .Kootenay lake. The people of the district  feel that the line ts likely to be built,  as they aro confident tlmt if the C. P.  It. does not construct t lie rond James  Hill of the Great Northern will do so.  With the proposed Nelson to Bedling-  ton railway constiiicted|froni the main  line of the Great Noi theni to the  lower end of Kootenay lake, it would  be perfectly practicable for Mr. Hill to  inn a line" of barges up the lake to  Lardo, where connection would be  made with the road's prospective line  from the latter town to Arrowhead.  The Great Northern is already in control of the Kaslo to Slocan railway.and  the people of the upper country are  confident that unless the C.P.It. speedily builds the line through the Lardeau  Mr. Hill will do so.

TERRTGR1AL LEGISLATURE  Regina, Septebmei- 8.���������In the legislative Assembly .today Premier  Hauitain, in reply to Mr. McDonald,  .said che negotiations with the federal  government in regard to settling Uie  question of the. maintenance and education ot deaf mutes had not made  much progress since lasl year. The  position was that tho Manitoba government was not willing lo receive  ihe deaf mutes unless an arrangement could be made extending over 10  years, as it would be necessary to  enlarge the. present buildings, etc.  The federal government had not yet  acreed to this, and that was how  matters stood. As financial arrangements between the federal and Territorial governments were at present  the executive did not feel they could  incur the heavy expenditure necessary for dealing with the question  and must therefore await the decision  cf  the  federal  government.

They floated whito and shimmering  on (he smooth surface of the lake,  whose waters were nnrippled by a single breeze.  Even the solitary dragon fly, which  had flown across a little whilo ago, had  disappeared, and tho frog would not begin its oroakiug till eventide. Thus nothing hut rest,'still nnd droamy, lay on  the surface of tho tranquil water.  Many a secret lay hidden in the deep*  est depths of the beuutiful lako and all  sorts of fanciful stories were recounted  of its fathomless mysteries.  Thero grew the beautiful Water Lily,  with her delicate lineaments, nnd hei  frngile, spreading roots seemed to he always searohiug in vain for a firmei  hold, and whose winsome society wa������  eagorly sought for by all her neighbors.  Tho tall flags hovered around her and  trero continually whispering and making .salutations to her.  Often had sho petulantly closed hez  beautiful leaves, whereupon they would  promise to leave her in tranquillity, but  when the again unfolded her .petals o������  made even tlio smallest movement it  was a pretoxt for renewed whispers.,  . All those foolish adorers :had never  yet - asked of tho Water Lily why sho  passed all hor time gazing upward toward the sky, although they might well  havo observed that the Lady Moon  shone there in all her splendor. When  the foolish ones slept, tho Moon's rays  grew brighter and brighter, glinted full  across the lako and embraced the flower,  which was transformed by love into a  Will-o'-the-wisp, whioh danced and  Qirted constantly with its bolovud.  Tho Tulip tvas tho first to be aroused  by this Will-o'-the-wisp, for as he had  lived at court ho was used to watching  and slumbered lightly. He drew-himself up with great austerity, for he saw  tbat the Water Lily was a person of  doubtful reputation, who allowed herself to bo embraced in a most unbecoming manner by the Moon, danced about  like a siren, threw usido all modesty  nnd provoked and teased her neighbors,  who nevertheless revered her and looked upon hor ns quite a saint.  So the Tulip~lost no time in relating  his discovery to his" nearest neighbors  in the flower world.  Tho Forgetmenot opened, its blue  eyes so wide,' so wido in their innocence, that they actually remained larger than when they lirst saw tho light.  Tha Lily of the Valley, who tenderly  loved tlia Water Lily, wept bitter tears,  whereupon tho Tulip grow bright red  with anger and continued to repeat his  story to the surrounding plants, who  drew together in -groups and chattered  aud recounted it to the South Wind,  who was just then passing over them.  Too. Wind repeated it to the Flags, tc  the Waiter, to"~t__rClouds> wlm-Frowned-  iu aujer and immediately covered tha  Moon tvith a veil.  The tall blue Gentian, perched like a  cavalier on the slopo of tho mountain,  bad heard tell of tho beautiful Water  Lily. Ho imagined that there lay at the  bottom of his benrt a spirit of fire equal  to that of the Will-o'-tho-wisp.  He had for some time been enamored  of tbe EdehveisB and would gladly hnvo  fondled, her velvety leaves. Ho was all  tho moro in love because tbo two castles, under tho walls of whioh tbey  dwelt, wero separated by u deep chnsm.  For all time cavaliers havo given proof  of their easy consciences and have de-  man.'lud moral perfection from thoir  own wIvf-K only.

'  Prince Naroissus thus became a horo,  and was mightily aitonisbcd to find  himsolf such. Hitherto his chief occupation had boon to oontemplate bis own  reflection in tbe waters of the lake, to  porfumo himself, and to languish in tho  wake of the Water Lily, aud, so render  himself more jntot.'esting ir. the Bight of  tho neighboring flowers. He looked  with  disdain   on   tha   evergretn Ivy,  .vboui he regarded u a mere poat and  would not oven deign to glance at the  worthless Boed, but stopped up his ears  with a weary, scornful air when tha  Reed thought good to rustle.  Prince Narcissus did notoareto harm  the Laburnum. He felt pity for it,  though he could have annihilated it  with one waft of his pungent perfume.  The Poppy ^md the Dandelion were,  {or him, personages of too low born extraction, and for a trifle ho would have  adopted a rude manner toward them-  But with Cavnlier Gentian it was  quito a different affair. IIo had come  down from his heights and dofled all  those who were enamored of the Water  Lily. Narcissus had accepted his challenge und had overwhelmed him with  his pungent odor.  As his reputation for valor was now  firmly established he would have liked  fn his vanity thousands of voioes to be  raised in his praise and grow angry  when tho frogs croaked a requiem in  compliment to tbe fallen cavalier.  However, such is the way of the world.  As long as one is nlivo lt refuses to pay  ono homage. One mnst die before being  appreciated and honored.  What would Narcissus have said had  be known that tho Edolweiss took the  veil on account of her deep sorrow on  the death of tho cuTalicr Gentian?  Toward evening, when ho had rested  from thoTatiguo of tho day, he oried in  a voice so loud as to bo hoard all around:  "Come to mo, thou beautooila hermit, so whito and pure. Thou art meet  and fit to bo my own princess."  Hardly had he pronounced these  words when hu was attaoked by pricking pains, which seemed to be burning  him on all sides, but he determined to  grasp and conquer his enemy.  He succeeded in catching hold of the  Will-o'-the-wisp and grasped it so firmly tbat it was soon inert and grew colder aud colder and heavier and heavier.  Eventually tbe burdon becamo so great  that he let it fall at his feet, and there  lay a monstrous jewel, white as the  Water Lily, but bearing in its depths a  marvelous blending of all the colors in  heaven and on tha earth, with a fire ns  vivid as that of the Will-o'-the-wisp.  Suddenly the Reeds wero pushed  aside, and n long bearded gnome issued  from the lake and gazed with goggle  oyes at tho newborn Opal.  Lost in admiration, ho hastened to  pick it up. Its effulgence was so brilliant that he thrust it into a lantern  which he wore slung round his neck  and set out to rejoin his fellow gnomes.  On rcaohiug them he cried out:  "Como and seo what a magniCoent  gem I-havo found."  His companions laughed at him, saying:  "Why, it is but a Will-o'-the-wisp."  ."I tell you it is an Opal. I picked it  up, and its fire scorched my band."  "Yet 'tis but a Will-o'-the-wisp 1"  Tho poor gnome  was furious with  anger aud exclaimed i ,  "I know that it is on Opal, and ye  are jealous because I am wealthier than  ye all!"  He preserved his treasure for some  days, but ho perceived'that it dwindled  slowly away as its rays grew faintor mid  fainter���������so faint, indeed,' that it scarce'  ly seemod to shine.  "Take it hack to the lake," cried his  companion. "Perhaps it may there recover its effulgence and benuty."  So the gnome went sorrowfully back  to the lake, hoping against hopo. Hardly had he openad his lantern when the  flame sprang out, and, increasing per-  oeptlbly in size, glided noiselessly over  the surface of the water to tha center of  the lake, where it distended and separated itself into broad green loaves,  whence emerged the chaste Water Lily,  which onoe more lifted its fair faco to  -gaze on the resplendent Moon.���������Carmen  Sylva (Queen of Bonmania) in Lady's  Bealm.

Tho Courts of Michigan are mora  Anglo-Saxon than those of Kdinhurgh.  Lastly, tho literature of America ia  distinctly Anglo-Saxon.

Tho statement i? as true of tin  living as of tho dead, llov.olls, for example, in spite ot his literary system, is  intense Anglo-Saxon in feeling, le is,  however, not necessary to labor the point.

If the young  Englishman with plenty of cash has  a corresponding amount of gumption  he is as sate in Canada as in any  other country.
