JOE   MARTIN'S   ELEVEN   POPULIST  SUPPORTERS  OUR   KELLIE ONE OF   THEM  The Victoria Globe Denounces the  Growing" Disease of Populism in the  B. C. Legislature and Proposes a  Coalition of Conservatives and Old  Liberals to Stem the Rising Tide of  Demagogism  The Victoria Glohe, the new evening paper published at the capital, in  the interest of thc old Liberalism as  opposed to Joe Martin and all his  works and which is very ably edited  and conducted, contained on Friday  a very striking. article under the  caption, "The Duty of tlie."Hour," in  which it brands much of the recent  legislation of the local house as sheer  Populism.   The.Glohe says:  "It seems to have been taken for  granted that there aie onlv two  political creeds represented in the  local house, hut a little reflection will  show that there could he no greater  mistake. There are, of course, Liberals anel likewise Conservatives, hul  it has not yet beer, pointed out that  there is a third and/not unimportant  contingent who are Populists. Judging lliein hy tlieir record ami hy their  speeches on the platform and in the  House there are at, least eleven ineiii-  he'rs of the present assembly who aie  either Populists or have Populistie:  tendencies, and these are Joseph  Martin. Higgins, Kellie, Forster.  Deane, Me-Phersnn, Henderson, Neill.  It. Smith, Helgesen and Kidd,  the lust unfiled would possibly be more  properly classed as a Patron. Populists  in lhu United States, used to point  wilh pride to Suckles*- Jerry. Simpson,  in British Columbia,' tliey glory in-the  deeds nf'Bed less'Joe Martin. Populism  that degrading cull, which has brought  Kansas,* Nebraska. Washington and  oilier states of the .Union into worldwide contempt, means raids on capital,  strangling of railways, .starvation  silaiiisfor public: .officers and consequent, poor service,- repudiation of  public obligations, stagnation of  business, general distrust, shattered  credit in the money -markets, anel in  ti'e end national bankruptcy.  lt is startling to contemplate that  the Populistie element in this Province should have gained so much  strength in the Legislature and Unit  there are 11 men out of 38 of this type  of lawgivers."  The duty of the hour ,the Globe  declares is a coalition of the  7>ld-Eiheral ~" \vitlf~the~~-Conserviit ives.-  The remedy for the growing disease of  Populism it says is simple.  " All that has to be done to hurl off  these Populists into innocuous oppo  sition is for the other members of Ihe  H inse; to meet and make concessions.  Mr. Semlin who Iris been tried anel  found wanting as a leader might very  easily be persuaded to retire' into  the quieter atmospheie of the Agent  Generaley in London, for which post  he would be admirably suited; and it  ought not to he difficult for Mr.  Turner and Mr. Cotton, both being  Conservatives, to form a coalition  government or at least arrange a  modus vivendi. Such a government,  which should consist of thiee Conservatives and three Liberals, could at  once annihilate the Populists aud  restore the credit of the Province and  would have the hearty friendship of  the federal govi-riiment which regaitls  Mr. Martin as the greatest- menace to  o  the welfare of the Liberal party."  " Necessarily in order to effect this,  some of the members of the late government will have to abandon lhe  idea of holding a portfolio in the new  regime. It is useli'ss to expee-t that  the people of the Mainland will ever  again accept as their government what  was frequently denounced as Ihe  Victoria clique. A fair representation  to both Mainland and Island must be  given with Liberals and Conservatives  in the executive council. Both Mr.  Turner and Mr. Cotton must now he  coisvinied of t he utter folly of of longer  permitting Martinisui to reign unchecked and they both owe it to the  country to sink their differences nnel  deliver the Province from the horrors  of Populism."  " The Liberal to the backbone, but. it holds that it would be  better to have the most bigoted Conservatives lhat could be* collected in  the province placed iu offle-e tl an we  should all suffer from the vagaries of  a political vagrant, who, for his own  purposes has unfurled the Black Flag  of Populism."  STRIKE ON THE NETTIE L  DETAILED ACCOUNT FROM THE  TROUT LAKE TOPIC  18 INCHES GALENA AND COPPER  HE DROPS INTO POETRY  MR. KELLIE APPEARS IN A NEW  CHARACTER  SWEET SINCER OF. KOOTENAY  The Main Ledge Struck at One Hundred and Sixty Feet��������� A Magnificent  Showing of Ore���������Supposed to Be in  the Silver Cup Lead���������The Work of  Development Will Go On . Till the  Mine is a Shipper  Billy Holloway culled into the Topic  to-day and stated that yesterday  about six o'clock a strike was made on  the Nettie L that is likely tn make it  with future development one of the  biggest mines in the district. Some  months ago a long crosscut was  commenced to tap the lead at a depth  of 115 feet. In running this tunnel  and when in about a hundred feet two  lei'ds were encountered whicli did not  appear on the surface, each containing a considerable! quantity of mineral.  The first of these blind leads was 8  feet thick and the second 5 feet. Tiie  latter of these caii\ed a streak two  feet thick of a fair grade of ore. After  leaving these veins and continuing the  crosscut for the main ledge, nothing  was encountered until in over 100 feet  when a body of magnetic iron seven  feet in thickness was encountered and  run through. Lying next to this was  2J feet of carbonates, then a layer of  steel galena two inches thick, and  finally tbe latest strike of 18 inches' of  solid galena and gray copper. This  tiiat-yiificent showing is the fruit of  hard and unremitting lnhor ar.d the  amount, of tunneling now completed is  something over 175 feet. The Nettie  L is located only about li miles fiom  Ferguson with which town it is connect iN.-hy trail.* It is the intention of  the owners to keep on witji the work  anil as development progresses, ih-  re.-ise the force until the property is  placed on .1 sound shipping basis.  The Nettie L is believed to be on the  Cup lead, but as a" considerable" distance intervenes between them this is  to a certain extent a matter of conjee:! ores. However,-he that is it. maj-,  if the* quantity of ore now showing in  the crosscut continues in the drifts, it  will be a credit I.o the Cup or any other  lead in the province*. The magnetic  iron in the strike is supposed to run  pretty high in golel. hut as nut hing has  been heard concerning the assays, the  amount can only be speculated at.  Billy Holloway who has been superintending the work of development,  leaves to-morrow for Revelsloke*. -md  when he returns' some definite pro-  Rramine~-of proceiliire-will-be-adiipted*-  The company owning the Nettie L  have their headquarters at Revelstoke.

The   Contribution   of the   Member  for'  Revelstoke to tbe Debate 01 the Constitutional Questions   Involved   in  the  Dismissal of the Turner Government���������  Kellie's First, Last  and   Only Speech'  During the Session  The Victoria Colonist of Saturday  gives the following, account  of  Mr,'  Kellie's contribution to the debate  011  the dismissal ot the Turner ministry.. ._  It   makes  very amusing reading for  the Colonist's subscribers" every whero  but in Itevelstoke.  " There was a general laugh  on  Ihe  government side encouraged by which -  the member for Revelstoke also felt  moved to inflict some of his ehaiMCtei-  istic poetry, upon lhe  house,  and  prefaced it hy   stating   that once iu   his *  happy boyhood days he had been very      ���������'  fond of woodchuck hunting, in  wliich  be had as   a   felloiv' conspirator   and  accomplice a'favorite dog; it -'"  Mr. Speaker did not see quite wheie  t e dog and the woodchuck could have  anything to  do - with   a question of    ; .  constitutional law." *     W   '      'U"  Mr.   Kellie   insisted   that  he    was *  coming to that point."  There'was one  memorable occasion on  which his dog .  had run a woodchuck into its hole and '  had managed  nip   the.disap-   -.,.  pearing game by the'tail.'*-   Then camo"  :���������"  a hiatus in  the   story   so   far   as   the   .  house vrns concerned, foi- tlie member's ' -  emotions evidently ovei come him, anil     ' t  his voire'almost sank to a whisper.   It*  ���������*-  was to be gathered  from, the. ccait'rxt','.  that the dog  bit off the woodehiick's :.    -  caudal appendage'.ind'dienl either by ���������";  choking tu-sudden'" shock) nhir* out of   .  the story, by some process all his own, *  tbe member evolved the-moral that in '  **��������� - ,,   .  the resolution   before lhe  house' the,  members had "bit off more thnn they'  could chew,"     Upon this theme Mr.  Kellie had written 11 poem,   which  he  proceeded   to   read   with    pride   and l.  dramatic gesture:     ��������� ���������    -       ���������    ������������������ ,  Dow the Turnerites did fly."

Field,   Feb.   25.���������Field,   50S   miles  from Vancouver, is a place  which  i>  springing  up  rapidly   anil   is   now  a  divisional point on the C.P.It.     Tliere  are now three stores in the  town  just  opposite  the  station,   viz..   Cailin k  Wychoff, general merchants, who  carry a large stock of gooels, J. R.  Hull & Co., of Revelstoke, Kamloops,  etc., who are just opening a large  butcher's store, and A. XV. Palmer,  late of Caninore, who bas a drug store  which is splendidly illuminated wilh  acetyline gas. There aie also two  stores, a barber shop, and two restaurants in the place. The Mountain  View restaurant, J*. Sands, proprietor,  is a favorite resort lor raihoad men.  The population of tbe place at present  is now about 330 and is steadily growing. The C.P.R. has a splendid hotel  here lying just at the foot of Mount  Stephen.  A dance given here on Friday  evening at which IS couples were  present, was held at one of thc new  residences of Mr. J. Ormiston, C.P.R  engineer, who very kindly gave the  boys the use of the house Cor the  evening.  The C.P.It. are building a hoarding  house and ,ice house here, whicli have  been moved from Donald. One of Mr.  T. Kil pat rick's bridge gangs iis at  present engaged putting up these  buildings with D. Wright of Revelstoke as foreman.  " Is that written by the Koolenay '  cow?"   asked   the ��������� member  for South '  East Kootenay, with 1 shudder and a"-*  gasp.  " This   must   slop,"     shinned     Mr.  Speaker, emphasizing the order with a '  succession of gavel taps.  The member forRevelstoke pei-sisted'-  while men.hers on both sides of the '  house looked with unspoken entreaty '  in their eyes towards the chair.  Once more the  member essayed  to '  proceed   with -  his   awful   onslaught,  while the   Speaker   forcibly' declared '  that   thc   assassination of' literature '  must uot proceed.  It was   then   lhat   the nlcmber for '  South   East   Koolenay' canie   to   the  rescue of the Alfred Austin  of Revel-'  stoke, and   once   again* demonstrated  his unquestionable fortitude.  " Let him go on. Mr.* Speaker." he  saiel: "I can stand it if other honorable members can."  And steeling his heart  to  pity,  the  sage   of   Revelstoke    completed    his *  deadly work as follows:  The " Kurnel " went to Cassiar.  And sniffed defeat from near and far. - ,  He miffed his party to the sky.  Anil to the. Dutchmen there proclaimed '  The Turiieiites muse be maintained..  ' all my eve;  'Twas ill for pie.  ~The sergeant-at-iu-ms was   seen ap- "  proaching ns he concluded, awaiting  the woid from  Mr. Speaker,   so 'Mr.  Kellie took his seat.

HARCOURT ON THE  CHURCH OF ENGLAND  Miss Shaw.'s Lecture On the Yukon  London, February IU.���������M. de Beati-  rt-paire, the ex-judge who acts for the  moment as military spokesman,  from the first demanded that the trial  of Dreyfus should bo transferred to  the entire court which contains 45,  and is supposed, hot having heard the  evidence, to bo -veiy hostile to revision.'  The" government, after the weight of  evidence which they refuse to publish, but which, says tho Minister of.  ' Justice, Is "consistent with the honor  of the judges," have agreed to this  plan; and on Monday brought In a  bill, ' which directs the whole court,  which can only decree revision  through a court similar lu kind to  the "one appealed from.  Dreyfus, therefore, must now in  any cane be sent before a court martial! The decision " has'' greatly  daunied the friends of Dreyfus. They  say'with tbe army, the populace anel  the cabinet against iheni, they are  powerless.      Poor. Dreyfus!  GREAT   PROTESTANT   DEMONSTRATION  A great demonstration was held in  lhe Albert     Hall on     Thursday, over  10,000 persons were -   present.      Lord  Klnnalrd  in  the chair, and =.-ho-was  supported  by English      and      Scotch  -  Peers, and a good number of members  cJ parliament.  The meeting was of a- most enthusiastic character, and,at the close despatched a long telegram to the Queen,  asking her to give the Prime Minister  c-;'r~ctions io take the necessary steps  iu the coming session of parliament  for suppressing the Romish doctrines  now In vogue in thousands of churches  in the country.

The closing paragraph of  the letter is devoted to the bishops  and the lawless clergy, pointing out  that, i; disestablishment comes as a  result or the present crisis, it will  come in a shape for which they are  perhaps, not prepared.  From ihe case of ihe Irish and  Welsh churches it ia generally supposed thai, should the worst happen,  the clergy will, in the event of diseu-  dowment. be treated with liberality  and generosity. Such treatment is  natural and.proper, when our unoffending clergy suffer by the application or the principle of religious  equal iiy.  "Hut these toii.-.ideraiions.'* Sir \V.  Harcourt point., out.

An   Agricultural   Market   Scheme  A conference was helel yesterday at  Cannon Street hotel, on tha subject  of a proposed imperial market and  stores, for the creation of which a  bill is being promoted in parliament  in  the present session.  It was slated that the proposed  stores would be brought inlo direct  railway communication with all parts  of the kingdom. They would bo devoted exclusively to the sale of home  and colonial products, foreign commodities  being  prohibited.  All transactions would be conducted  under the supervision of a local committee, appointed by the farmers of  each county, and it was proposed to  commence operations in the live  stock industry by bringing the farmers of Ireland and the eastern counties into direct communication with  each other. A series of public, meetings was arranged in support of the  proposal.  A    Curious    Custom  Biddenden. the scene of the extraordinary murder last Sunday���������when  the rector's daughter shot the village shoemaker, who was also Sunday school superintendent���������is one of  thc most curious vitiligos in the south  east of England.  It stands far removed from the  movement of the world. It-is chiefly  known through a certain charity,  concerning which there exists an odd  legend. '  Tweiuv acres, called Bread and  Cheese Land, were left long ago .by a  person unknown, the yearly rents to  he distributed among the poor of the  parish.  This is done on Easier Sunday afternoon, in COO cakes, each of which  has the figure of two women impressed upon it. The story goes that  these are the Biddenden sisters, joined together at birth in Siamese-twin  fashion.

They are  not to be secured by life incomes as  commutation or compensation in the  work of accomplishing the "conversion of England" out of the funds of  the Protestant Establishment."  This is an aspect of the case that  seems to have escaped the notice of  the Romanising clergy, whose defiance  of the laws of a church that pays  them for being loyal, Is only eejualled  by the tenacity with which they cling  to their crucifixes, and by their determination not to let their consciences  suffer at the expense of their pockets.

P. FOR WINNIPEG  KILLS HIMSELF '  EXTRAORDINARY     TRAGEDY  The Deed Was Apparently Done  Playfully in the Presence of. His Wife.  Winnipeg. February 22.���������Mr. H. XV.  ���������luincson, M. P. ,for Winnipeg, accidentally shot himself dead at his  home McDcrmott Avenue last evening  about 8 o'clock.  The particulars of the lamentable  occurrence as learned by Free Press  reporters last night are very sad. It  appears that Mr. Jameson hnd gone  home from -t meeting of the Board of  Trade between C and 7 o'clock and  had dinner with his family. After  dinner he went to his room where he  read a paper, smoked a cigar, anil  then went to the kitchen and talked  with Mrs. Jameson.  The conversation some way turned  to the Mtbjpct of fire arms "and Jlr.  Jameson remarked that he hael one,  at the same time taking a self cocking  revolver from his pocket. Ho began  examining the weapon anel while  doing so said to his wife: "How  easy it would be to take one's life."  anil lifted the weapon to his mouth.  Mm. Jameson was not looking just at  that moment but she heard a louil  report.  As she turned around her husband  fell and expired instantly, the bullet  having passeel through his neck and  shattered the spine.  ! Doctors were -immediately summoned but all life was extinct when  they arrived.  Dr. Benson, coroner, was thon  called and put in possession ot the  circumstances.  Mr. Jameson was in thc best health  and had not complained of any business troubles. He was formerly  mayor of Winnipeg and was electee!  at the last general election to represent .this city in the Dominion parliament in the Liberal interests. Physically Mr. Jameson was a large healthy  man, with apparently no reason in  -the world tor committing suicide". The  tragedy has caused a tremendous  sensation iu the city.

There  was a saying about not letting your  right hand know what your left was  doing, but in Calgary they not only  give the thing aw'ny to both hands,  hut everyone informs his or her  friends. The old idea somehow seems  tbe best. Sacrifices, if real, should  not be made a parade of. One sweet  maiden is giving up candy, somo  dudelet cigarettes. lt may be -all  very well, but why boast of it? As  for oursolf we have also sworn off  buying tobacco, trusting to be able to  rustle enough to keep us going for the  IU days.  * *   *  '  So the Calgary hoys got beaten at  Edmonton in the hockey tournament.  Tliey should have put up in Soutli  Edmonton-anel read The Comforter  until the match. Instead of that tho  wily Edmonton rooters took them out  anel gave them a hot time in the olel  town. Two or three sports were  after*us for bets, but we knew these  Edmonton fellows and kept the oof in  our jeans. Hockey is a wonderful  game. We once acted as goal umpire.  The first thing that happened a puck  struck us in the face and we were  mixed up with a lot of howling  players. , Our doctor's bill for that  game paralized us and since then wo  have no use for hockey.  * .- *   * -  Take it all round we prefer" curling.  To begin with, it looks far more .respectable than hockey. ^'The curlers  are a" good lot, and put - up a good  time. The game is moro scientific,  although no quicker, anel once you  have mastered the language, which  we will admit is difficult, you are all  right. When a man can speak curling and golf, Choctaw will be mere  child's' play,to him. Archie Grant  c;in spring words on an outsider that  would'crack a dictionary man's jaw.  * *   *  There are two ways of" making a  fortune in the North West. Handling  cyttle and selling" whiskey. If you  want to roll up a stake quickly,  handle cattle. If you can't handle  cr.ttle, sell whiskey. In either case  you're a--winner. Tackle any other  business, that ot storekeeper, doctor,  lawyer, tlentist and ' journalist, or  anything else you -like, and you will  find your existence will be of tho  common, dull, familiar old hand to  mouth order. The lovely banks we  see at the street corners are not  utilized here for deposits. No one  has anything to deposit above a $10  bill.  * *   *  It is gradually dawning on us that  in a respectable religious city like  Calgary, marriage is one of the essentials. All the married folk live  cheerfully in their happy little cottages, as white people ought to do,  %vl)il������~tlT~e"bachelorsr'~stupidJ���������brutesr  experience the greatest difficulty in  paying for their room rent and board  week by week. We do not know  cvervthing about it, but it strikes us  lhat" here it is bachelorhood whicli is  a failure, and not marriage.  ������    *    *        -"  A bachelor has no home. He wero  better off lying cold in his grave as  passing his elays in a boarding house.  What sort of a miserable, chilling,  blood curdling sort of a place is a  boarding house to spend one's days  in anyhow? A man might as well be  a scrub steer in a corral having hay  chucked over the fence for him to eat  three "times a day.  ���������    .    *  Homo Is the kingdom over which a  woman is built especially to reign. Of  course, were It nol for his business a  man could have no home. If lt were  not for homes tliere would be no business at all. The expenses of other  homes make an income for him, and  the expenses of his own exhaust his  income for the welfare of some other  home birds in business. It is tho  circulating decimal of reciprocity. No  sacrifice is too great for him to mako  for his home, and no other home is  quite so happy as his own, especially  when he is newly wed. Woman slaves  to make the home, and gets her board  and clothes for her trouble. Happy  woman! No wonder- men are so  anxious to marry you! Is marriage a  failure? We suppose so. For, after  all, it is the only real and permanent  success,in the world.  * *   *  In order to be successful hero ono  must have a villa and a family. Otherwise you are a hobo. Get tho villa  and " a wife, anel the family will  follow.     All will be well with you.  next opera ourselves. ' If the lover's  port is engaged we will sell tickets,  | v. e are not proud. We draw the line  at prompting however. Death io  slow music before the curtain is not  in our line.  . ������    .    .  Faure, the President of France, is  dead. No thanks, you needn't ask  why he went Faure to do it. That  has been asked befaure. We were  much grieved about it. Some fellow  time to us yesterelay and informed us  lhat the French had elected a woman  in his place, Lou Bet, he called her.  He thought she was a relation of Lau  Doll's.  ������    *    ���������  There was a tenderfoot in Calgary  the otner day thai we met, in El  Jolllo j'rederico's little sttinil.

MONUMENT   TO* ADVERTISING  Ono of the most extensive monuments to the value of extensive advertising Is the immense establishment of Lit Brothers, which In scarcely five years has grown to he one of  lhe three largest department stores in  Philadelphia. In 1894 the firm had  120 employees and did a $150,000 business; today it has 2,100 persons on its  salary list and uuring 1898 the business amounted to over ��������� $4,000,000.  Samuel an.'. Jacob Lit compose the  firm, and the former writes ��������� and  manages  the  .advertising.  Mr. Lit says: "Our advertising  methods, as well as our business methods, are peculiarly our own. In  the beginning the enduring principle  that 'whosoever bought should bo  satisfied with the article and the  price or receive their money back,'  was established, and by its side was  tho motto that 'whatsoever we advertised shoulel be a bargain, pure and  simple, and should be found exactly  as represented.' - We aim to undersell others and we succeed. We aim  to get a lion's share of trade, and that  is why we advertise gooels at figures  that must appeal to those who may  know the regular prices and are only  too anxious for a chance to buy such  goods for less. We always state the  prices of everything mentioned in tho  ads. We use the daily "papers every  day, and of course never use the same  ad-twice.���������As-a=-ruloiour��������� ads_are_set-  In nonpareil, with quadruple column  heavy displayed heading���������sometimes  half a page, sometimes a whole page;  sometimes more than one ad in the  same paper. We strongly favor the  use of cuts, and we use them whenever possible. If we don't have a cut  of the article advortlsed wc put in a  fancy cut. We do not uso country  papers, magazines, catalogues, circulars or anything ot that sort. Our  experience is lhat newspaper advertising pays best, and the best results  proportionately come from tho papers  that have the largest circulations.  There are few. If any, business houses  in Philadelphia that pay the newspapers more for printer's ink than we  do."  ences. ��������� Lot 72 x 100. Beautiful situation.

ONCE MORE j  INCORPORATION  Jlr. Kellie's doubts and fears of the  advisability of incorporation for this  town have now been laid to rest and  he has kindly permitted, the desire  expressed by the Bourd of Trade that  the Lieutenant-Governor should proceed to nume the ilny for the election  of the first council to take elfeet. The  Herald therefore considers itself  juslilied in supposing that, this .time  incorpoi'iitioii will go on to become an  ."leeniiiplished fact. It is  imagine thnt nothing further will now  crop up to prevent it, though the  ingenuity of its opponents both open  and concealed is considerable nnd it  would he perhaps premature to state  that it iseert.ain that, even' now Revelstoke will get down to the! 'business of  self-government immediately.  In the event, however, of his Honor's  proclamation appearing in this week's  Gazette,we shall in all probability  soon llml ourselves in the thick of n  contested municipal election. And il  is therefore just as well to review the  situation. By the amendment to the  act the electors will comprise every  resident owning property and every  resident renting a building or part of  ei building for which he pays sixty  dollars a year, provided, of course,  they are of full age nnel British subjects. The eiualifiention will give a  large and representative vote, including all persons who hnve any kind of  interest in this town, whether as  properly owners or as pursuing some  kind of livelihood in the place. It  excludes only the merely transient  element whose interest in the place is  nil ami whose vote would furnish an  element of insecurity to that conservative progress of the town, to further  which im.'iii'poralion has been  desired.  With regard to the candidates for  oflice the situation appears to he  mu-hitiigpd. The three aspirants to be  first occupant-of the mayor's chair are  Messrs. 11. J. Bourne. F. McCarty and  T. Ij. Haig. As soon as the proclamation i.s gazetted these gentlemen will  no deuilit finally make up their minds  and ciime out. with tlieir addresses to  the elcutors. These must in the nature  of things be of a general and indefinite  I'liiirtu-ter. hut there is one point on  whicli I lit* Herald ivbnlcl like to see  something .definite" in theni and that is  on tlie question' of salaries to the  innyoi ami council, in connection with may he .timely? tii note lhe  fact that both Rosslanel and Nelson  afler two years' experience of a  salaried mayor and council,: have  decidi'd lhal payment- of the city  fathers is an unnecessary luxury. At  all events lhe. electors ��������� should' know  beforehand what are the opinions , of  the various candidates on this point  and what il io*������y expect from lliein if  elected.
