Sibbald Characterized as Un-British, Unjust and  Cruel���������The Reason That the Position  Was Wanted by a Friend of the  Government is an Aggravation of the  , Wrong.  The REVELBTOKE Heuai.d is furiously angry over the dismissal .of Mr.  Sibbald, which it designates as a "dirty  piece of business." Mr. Sibbald is  gold commissioner for the Revelstoke  district, anil a few days ago, ns our  dispatches informed us, was advised  by the provincial secretary to have his  resignation ready by the loth inst..,  the executive committee having  "reason to believe that the retention  of his services as the representative of Revelstoke woulel  not conduce, to the best interest of the  district." Dismissed in this unceremonious fashion and with these words  Mr. Sibbald is obliged to go out under  a cloud. The language used in tht"  official communication contains a  reflection of his character as a member  of the British Columbia civil service.  There is no distinct charge, the public  being left to surmise .what they please.  This is not the way to conduct the  government affairs of tliisipiovitice. If  there were any charges of-misconduct  or incompetency, the least that decency and fair play demanded was  that Mr. Sibbald should have been  informed of them. Then, if he could  not explain -them away or defend  himself, let hiin be di.siniss.ed. But to  be thrown out without, a word of  explanation, and in language that  leaves a stigma on his - character, is  un-British, unjust anel cruel. It is  ���������suggested, and no doubt with good  reason, that his place was wanted by  some friend of the' government. . That  is* so far from being an excuse that it  is an aggravation of the wrong... It is  but another instance of the odious  spoils system. " Good citizens of all  parties should _ raise up tlieir voices  against-..- tlin introduction * into ibis  province*, of that supreme political  'abomination. If we are tobe indebted  to the Semlin government for the  acclimatising of that noxious plant of  United States politics, the time will  come when it will be remembered with  n. curse. And if the people are tei  prevent this misfortune, they will  require to discountenance the system  iind protest with honest indignation  against every practice of it-. This is  somethingniore than a party affair.  The respectability and efficiency ~of  the civil service are involved and  every honest citizen of the province  must feel conceirnetl as to these.���������  Nelson Miner.  A FABLE,  How a Wise Man Played Such Sweet  Music Upon, Political Wires That  so Dumbfounded His Friends That He  TROUT LAKE UP IN ARMS  Against J. D. Sibbald's Outrageous  Dismissal��������� An Indignation Meeting  and a Resolution.  Imtiieeliately on receipt of the news  of the dismissal of J. D. Sibbald from  the position of gold commissioner an  indignation meeting of residents and  free miners was convened. D. L.  Clink was elected chairman and Dan  Kean, secretary. The following resolution was unanimously adopted at the  meeting which comprised supporters  of'Jiothsides of the house"'"  Whereas Mr. J. D. Sibbald has been  government agent and gold commissioner in the North Riding of West  Kootenay for the past year and has  given universal s-itisfaction to the  residents and free miners of this  division in that capacity, and whereas  he has been dismissed from that office  without any definite reasons being  given; Resolved:���������That ive. the residents and free miners of Trout Lake  mining division beg to request that ti  parliamentary investigation beheld to  enquire into the causes of his dismissal  from office. Anel be it further resolved theit"copies of these resolutions  be sent to the Mon. O. E. Semlin.  premier; Mr. J. M. Kellie, M.P.P., and  Mr. J. D. Sibbald.  v *  MR. TISDALL EXPLAINS  He Was Not Opposed to Bill to Prevent Speedy Trial of Election  Petitions.'-'    -  Vancouver, Jan. 11.--Mr. Tisdall  cemsented this morning to explain the  reason of his resignation from the  legislature. He said that lie had issued  instructions , to his clerk, not to soil  goods to any government official. In  spite of these instructions, on the 22nd  of lieceuiber a clerk in his employ sold  seventy cents worth of cartridges to  Provincial Police Officer , Campbell  residing here. Officer Campbell got a  receipt for the money and sent it to  Victoria, eis an expeuse. 'voucher on  Jan navy ei.' "  On January 7th it reached Victoria.  On Monday, while, .talking to the  'Attorney-General regarding the proposed jissay office this voucher was  produced and handed to' ine. There  was but one course open to me���������to  resign. I did so at once. A writ will  be issued immediately and I will go to  the people 11 strong supporter of the  Semlin government.  It was not opposed to the election  bill, voting for it on the first reading,  theiefore my resignation had nothing  to do 'with the bill.  KELLIE   WHITEWASHED"  BUT THE'COAT OF  KALSOMINE  IS THIN  Was Able to Work "Them for a Snap  (Written for tho Herald by Swemipiey).   .  CHAPTER I.  Once upon a time tliere lived in a  town away off in the mountains a man  I who kept a hardware store, anil who  also dabbled . in other lines such as  drygooels and groceries. -After many  years of varied sui'cess this person  found himself doing a very small  liusiness-nnd taking in next to nothing.  Being cunning as, a fox nnel not  overburdened with 'honorable principles, and, to wit, a great friend of a  wonderful wise man who kept being  sent afar to confer, with, other wise  men of his day, and learning that in  thc early part of a certain' year great  amounts of money were to be spent In  his district, which money wan given  to this district by the great wise man  anel his friends. This wily fox did  play for 11 timo upon certain wires  music that was pleasant to the ear of  the wise man and his friends, and in  order to better play this tune did  neglect his drygoods business, and did  transfer the management of his hardware and grocery trade, "but did still  retain his interest in them" to certain  young and unwise men, and thus  having so much "time to play sweet  music opon the wires, with- which he  had been familiar from youth, it came  about that tho wise man and his.  triends were enchanted by the music,  to such adegree. and were so pleased  with it, that they did offer to-grant  any request that lhis wily old fox  might make. lie, being bashful, did  not ask for too much at first, but  offered to take any good commission  that might turn up; and a goe-d commission was given to him. So he  retired into his den to practice more  upon the wives, so that when the  great sums of money had arrived he  eoulel by his wired music weave more  great spells about the great wise man  and his friends.

Benson,  claims that the Fin used a' kuife on  him. Friends of the Finhinder say  that Benson was entirely to_ blame for  the" assault and that . he, "* Benson,  assaulted the Finlander first, and that  a warrant has been issueilfor Benson's  arrest on a charge-of assaulting Sala  by kicking him in the head.

The   letter   was  substantially  the same-as "the     message  received*."  from Mr.  Brewster   by  the  board   of"'  trade, em receipt of which that body-  had already decided to defer incorpor-���������*  ation for a time, so that  much ofits*'  interest was already discounted.

P. R. Peterson demanded to know",  what had become, of his title deeds,...  seeming to be under the impression*'  that the chairman, very possibly.had.  them in his pocket.  S.     Needhani's  .remarks  were nofc"-  very intelligible. ~ They were understood to have reference* to some meet- -  ing Held in terwn six yearsago.  T. L.

At -  the same time he took the opportunity "--  of dissociating himself as a private-  individual from the vote passed by the  majority of the board. ^   *'  R.

There is a  discussion among physicians as to  whether tive iliscise is- contagious or  not, some holding that it is due tn the  development of germs which we all  enrry in our system, anil others that  itis communicated hy contact with  infected people; However this miiy  be in point of fact, ;������U thc doctors are  agreed" that in view of the previ-  'Ionce of the disease, all persons ought  to sec that their general health- is in  the best possible condition. This is  pretty gooel advice- to give and take  under any ciiciiinstances. but it is  specially good during the prevalence  of any epidemic. Many persons quite  misunderstand what grippe is like. It  is moie than a heavy cold. It is something that takes holel of a man and is  apt to stay l������y him- for a long time.  Sometimes the effects remain for  months after the acute stage, of the  siekness has passed*. We mention-this  so' that people- wilt not be unduly  alarmed if they happen- to- get even  a bad cold. At tbe same-time we  repeat the warning of the New York  physicians to avoiel excesses ejf- ail  kinds to,watch the diet, so as te> see  that tho system is kept in good tone.

DIVISION  OR   DISSENSION  From  The  Cal&ary  Herald  Looking at the future of the Territories from the broadest standpoint  aud apart from the interests of any  particular town it must be self-evident  that the policy of wisdom calls for  an amicable division at the outset in  order to avoid the possibility ol dissension later on.  There are questions which if the  Territories should by any misfortune)  be organized as one unwieldy province would inevitably breed discontent. The railway problem is one of  these. The interestes of Alberta demand a railway connecting Edmonton  and Calgary with the transcontinental-  systems to the south? Let? no mistake  be made on this point. A southern  railway is as essential to the prosperity of the western half of the Territories as the building of?the C. P. lt.  was to the prosperity of . the Dominion.  .The eastern half is fairly well  served in this respect. It has tho  Northern Pacific connecting at Bran  don, only a few miles to the east, and  the Soo line running south east from  Pasqua.  Would Assiniboia and Saskatchewan  consent to a   provincial'.?subsidy."- for  Alberta's  railway?      AVe    fancy  they  Would  not, at  least  not  without ex  pecting a quid pro quo.  Then there are the.���������������������������: vast interests  involved in the development of Irrigation. These will reeiuire generous  treatment at the hands of the new  province. The eastern half of the  Territories, not requiring; irrigation  and riot being able to secure "It anyway, would scarcely regard with  favor   any    considerable    proposition  involving the expenditure���������uf���������provincial capital or provincial revenues  on irrigation enterprises. The stand  its people would be likely to take  was sufficiently foreshadowed by the  hostility of Eastern Assiniboia newspapers towards irrigation when that  movement was new. Their contention  then" ���������was';1 Is now, and probably will  be. that the lands which do not require irrigation should be first settled  and irrigation relegated "to the uncertain future. Sueih a position is  probably satisfactory from their  point ol view.   It is not from ours.  The interests of Alberta and Eastern Assiniboia or Manitoba are as  much at variance: as those ot }Ion-  tana and Minnesota. The proposition  to tie.: them, up in an unwilling provincial partnership for-all time is as  ridiculous anil illogical as it would  have been to erect Minnesota, Dakota  and Montana into one State. The  mining, ranching and irrigation features of Alberta and the Medicine Hat  elistrict are analogous to the same  features of Montana. Similarly the  interests of the eastern half of the  country are analogous to those of  Minnesota and Dakota.  The Moosomin Spectator builds an  argument on the relative positions cf  New York and Pennsylvania anel the  smaller States adjoining. "In the  American Union." it says, 'we find  very large states with very small sister states closely joining them. New  York and Pennsylvania have areia.  wealth, and population laf beyond  many of "their sister states, but they  are not crying for division. Both  of these states too have their capital-  very one sided. Pennsylvania has as  its capital a city not only bn its extreme boundary, but far inferior to  other cities in the state. It might  have been better for the smaller  states had their areas been larger,  but it can scarcely be urged that it  would have been better for the larger  states had their areas    been smaller."  The comparison Is the reverse of  obvious. Alberta alone is more than  twice the size of either New Y'ork or  Pennsylvania-    The area of the four  Territories���������Alberta, Athabasca, Assiniboia and Saskatchewan is greater  than that of New York, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Indiana. Illinois, Ohio  and Kentucky all lumped together,  with several othor smaller states  thrown in. , The farming district tributary to Moosomin contains more  acres than whole states in the Amorican Union. The Spectator will, have  to find justor comparisons'and stronger arguments before it can convert  the people of Alberta to its Utopian  scheme.  The same paper thinks The Herald's  objections to ono province Would  vanish "like snow before an April  shower" (sic) if Calgary wore mailo  tlio capital. They woultl nol. The  dilliculties would then be seriously  iiicreaseil. This part of the new prov-  iiu-o would thon have tu fnco not only  tlio .dissimilar and unsympathetic in-  te_i"esls t.f the oast half but the envious disappointment of either towns.  "A "woman scorned" would not bo In  .it with tho chagrined jealousy of  places like the Pile 0' Italics, if Calgary gol. tlio capital.  As a niattei" of fact while Calgary  is not goiiiy; to turn up her nose at  being off creel the capital, it is something which is by no means essential  lo her prosperity. Being tho capital  does not of itself make a place either  wealthy or populous aiu! Calgary is  -'destined to be both whether she gets  the capital or not. Papers liko The  Spectator do this place an injustice  iri eternally harping on its alleged  hankering after the capital. It woulel  be just as manly in discussing this  question ��������� to leavo; out the attributing  of petty and sordid motives. Can't  Tho Spectator understand lhat it is  possible for even a Calgary journal  I.o entertain some feeling of respect  for the interests of the country at  large?. Wc arc ?iiot worrying about  tlio capital. If Calgary deserves the  capital she will get .'it; .whether .it is  one province or two, but wo venture  to think we have given good and  sufficient; reasons for our belief that  the policy of making one big, unwieldy contentions and overwhelmingly predominating province in thc  Federal .family is.._ unwise, inistates-  manlikc  and  unbusinesslike.

This means that Americans are to be  debarred from mining in the Atlin  district, which promises to be richer  than tho Klondike, As it is reached  with great ease, passengers on the  Rosalie, the last boat down, say that  Atlin is turning out extremely rich.

DEPORTATION  Alleged Authentic Account of; How and  by Whom It Was Blown  Up  The following is given out as an  authentic account of the blowing up  of the United States batleship Maine  iii_Havana harbor. The authority for  the following astonishing statements  is a Havana-newspaper called "El  Reconcentrado," iind with regard to  them we would merely say "si non  vero, e ben trovato!' The paper  says:    .  "When the Maine came into Havana harbor Brosmes openly declared  in Spanish cafes that such an act of  audacity on the part of the' Yankees  could not pass with stringent' punishment. His threats were direct and  deeded destruction to the American  boat. His associates wore Philip Gonzales, Dion Siouvia and Eusebo Azc-  cue, violent Spaniards. Others? were  officers anel volunteers . These men  boasted that the Yankees wore about  .0 get thoir "dues - though no charge  can be directed against any save  Bresmes. He and the hot headed  Spaniards of Ludlow street met nightly at a house near the corner of  Murriilt and Herbana streets where  thc plot against the Maine was concocted and arrangements completed.  When the explosion Bresmes was in tho Lacon theatre with  friends. At the sound of- the explosion he cried: 'There goes the Maine'  Champagne was drank in honor of  the terrible event; at a moment when  others were vaguely inquiring of onc  another what had happened. Bresmes  name was mentioned before the. American court of inquiry, but not sufficient evidence was then - forthcoming  to warrant-any action aiid'.all��������� reference to him was suppressed"* iu the  published report. The Cubans here  almost without exception regard -the  charges of El Reconcentrado as beyond dispute. Bresmes is now said  to be hiding in Spain."

J-ickmn. manager of the  "Winter Carnival t" be helel at Ross-  leind.on J.-miiaty 2Uh to 2St.h, reports  ns follows to the committee re Revel-  ftokf's probable repre������sent-ition at  the  . carnival: "The people of Itevelstoke.

Ski running was taken  up by some of the people of Revelstoke  .-it a built the same time it was' in  Hos-d-itul. .'end tliPn* are- some very  fair runnel s among them."  WHO ARE THE  BOARD OF TRADE ?  This was a question put with much  withering emphasis by a well known  resident on Front Wednesday  night's meeting. The implication was  of coarse that compared to the anti-  incorporation crowd, the board of  trade were of small account indeed.  Let us see. The total assessment of  the residential population of Revelstoke is $356,230. Out of this sum the  total amount represented by the members as the board of trade is $250,530,  leaving only $013,800 for the rest of the  community. It seems to the Herald  that these figures demand some, con-  sitleriitioti. Anel while the vote eif  any one ratepayer is, and should be,  as good as that of another, still it is  only reasonable that so large a portion  of the assessable property as is helel  and repiesentetl by the members of  Lhe board of trade should be of some  consieleration in deciding matters  which touch so nearly on the finance  epiestion as does incorporation.  Further, Mr. Kellie, with his usual  lack of courtesy and good taste, endeavored to insinuate in the recent  telegram to the Mail that incorporation was being hurried on by a few  members of the board, whose opinion  he refused to entertain ab all. Mr.  Kellie must be very well aware that in  the present disorganized condition eif  this place, there is nobody in it, which  can give expression to its needs and  requirements except the board of  trade. It is a condition of affairs  which suits him exactly and which he  would doubtless like to see indefinitely  prolonged. He must further be aware  that the board of traele does very fully  comprise the standing, influence and  intelligence of the community. It is  the very last organization which  would be likely to favor any wild or  ill-considered project. He must know,  if he. has nny power of observation at  all, that there never was a place that-  needed incorporation worse in order  to render it. a place of decent, civilizeel  habitation. He 'must have known, if  he knows'fi-iiat a reason is atjdl.l that  he had not given any tangible reason  to the boariLwhy incorporation should  lie postponed'. " What then ��������� is the  reason of his" outburst of blustering  indignation? What is the cause, of all  Hie play to the gallery ?. In point of  fact, what is the' real reason of Mr.  Kellie's opposition to incorporation  at this juncture?  The Herald thinks the real reason  is.not very .fai" lo seek.. Everything  points to another election for the local  house in.the. very near future when  _IivI_oHic"r will have once moi-e to  solicit the suffrages of the electors.  Incorporation just at this particulor  time would take a great ileal of. pat;-  ronage and spending peiwer out^of the  hands of the gold commissioner. It  would rub Kellie's friends and officials  of nearly tbe whole"of their influence  in this resppcl -right nt the point  where the voting strength' is* the  heaviest. The Hkiiald believes that  this consideration furnishes the real  reason for the desperate resistance  which Kellie and his immediate  satelites have been making to the  immediate incorporation of this town.  It does not, moreover, think that"this  belief does any injustice to the reputation for political double dealing which  these people have managed to accumulate among this community. It  believes that the board of trade could  scarcelyhave done-otherwise_than-ir  has tloue in postponing incorporation  in the face of Mr. Cotton's expression  of uneasiness as to his promised expenditure on the river bank if incorporation were hurried on. At the  same time the Herald is distinctly of  the opinion that these qualms of the  Provincial Secretary came in very  oppoi timely for Mr. Kellie. Particularly siuce, as he himself declared he  had not consulted any of the cabinet  at could not possibly have  been aware of Mr. Cotton's feelings on  this point when writing his letter of  mysterious warning.0 to the board of  trade.  If an article has any value of any  utility at all il can be sold by letting  people know about it. a  The more a man spends fur newspaper advpiti.-ing the more positive  he is in his heliet in the results that it  brings.
