A' W.**.CKAGE I Churchwardens  TIIE  LABOR   PROGRAMME  While in ils lust, issue the Hkrald  deprecated the pledging of candidates  tn carry out the ideas of any one particular class, il docs not follow that il  is not in sympathy with tlie ideas  on themselves. As a mutter of fact  with many, of the ideas em the; prn-  griimnie of lbe labor union in Ibis  place it is in perfect sympathy anel will  do all in ils power to see them curried  into practice. Such for instance are  the $2.50 a clay wage unel the six  months residence, qualification for employment by the municipality. The  hist is only protection to our own people, while as to the first the Hkrald  is of t.he opinion that the scale of  wages for ordinary labor might be  raised all ovor this province with the  greatest advantage, not only to the  workingmenbul to the general prosperity. The state of Montana maintains a high day's wage by law and  there is-no more prosperous state in  lhe whole! Union, a .state, of things,  which is openly attributed to the good  wages. And while the corporation in  its public; works will have to make*  every dollar tell, the Hekalo contends  that it will lell in the right direction  if the to.vn assists the workingnien to  build up tlieir homes and bring up  their families in this place in eomfoi t  unci contentment, even if there is not  quite so much grading clone or sidewalk laid as might have been at fun-  tractor's wages. Another plank in  tlie labor programme is the nine hours  day. This feature is on trial in- town  right now, as the men employed cm  the river bank by the provincial govei nmenl are working from 7 to 5 wit li  an hour's intermission for dinner.  How the results obtained compare  with last your under the ten hours  day would lie an interesting point to  usceetaiii from those in charge of the  work. The Hkrald thinks that very  probably lliere is not iiearly*sso much  difference in the actual amount of  work elone as one* would "imagine. And  what difference there is mrey li"_r***.*i'.i,.,V  offset to people of broad views of  things, as our western' people to do  them justice generally at the bottom  are, by the extra comfort which  knocking off .work at five- instead of  six gives any man, whether lie ii  working at day labor on the streets eir  toiling in ail eitTice. It is the little  lliingsJ.liuL go to make up the onjeiy-  iiiciii of life and that extra lieuir of  leisure counts for a good deal more  than a meie sixly minutes of time, in  making existence less of a mere daily  diudge'i-y and more of lhe kind that a  man by bis nature wants to lead.  To attain these ends apparently, another clause has been inserted-in lhe  programme requiring that municipal  works should be iliinc; by labor and  not by contract. On this point the  limit ALT) joins issue with lhe pro-  _Rraii+_lrer������"Tlie~HEiiAi;u~-~wants-tn-see  woi-kiiigiiien get every possible show,  but at the same time it dues not adhere to the position that lhey are a.  class of ill-treated angels without  wings. Workingmen have Iheir  little ways, just llie same as the rest  of us,'and one of them, experience  seems to point out, is Unit when working at day's wages for ii government  or municipality tliey are very-apt to  get em what is known as the govei iiinent stroke, while at the same time  the corporation itself from one -reason  or another does not as a rule manage  to get hold of it perfectly competent  person to boss lhe job. Every dollar  has got In be made to tell in this  municipality and it seems to the  Herald lhal lhu dollars spent nn  public works will be made to tell best  by contiaclors whose business it i-i  to carry . out sue-h works anil whose;  work has to pass the s-e-rutiny of the  city surveyor before they gel, their  cheque. At the same tinn; In pintect  the workingmen the corporation  could make lbe scale of wage*, the  qualifications for employment anil lbe  hours of labor part, of I In; conditions  under which tenders would be.-u-cepte.l.  In this way it seems tei the Hkrald  lh.it economy might be obtained along  with lhe rights of laboiyi combination  wliich, lliere is scrieius danger, might,  fail to connect with asysloni of doing  municipal work by day labor.  The IIkkalu hopes to see -ill these  points taken intu consideration bv  uiir council during our first, year of  self-government.. This will be the  year during which u great deal of  municipal public: work' will lie elone  and ii year fnr sotting precedents in  the conduct, of our affairs. It is fur  the welf.-nc and advantage of the  whole community lhat labor in  Itevelstoke should be contented and  prosperous. And tliere is nothing to  lie lost, but on the contrary everything  to be gained by starting tliu upbuilding  of this place, with this factor for  success us one of the chief corner  sluncij e;f thc edifice.  THE LABOR UNION  Is Not Attempting to Get Signed  Pledges from Candidates to Support  Their Platform  Ed. Adair, president of the Labor  Union, has informed I be Hkiiald that  that organization has not anil does  nut intend tn demand any pledges  from candidates for municipal oflice.  There are certain objects which llie  Union has at heui t and on these points  he lias sounded candidates, as of course  he or any one else has a perfect right  lo. These points include a minimum  rate nl' $2,150 a clay for wages on  municipal works, a nine hours day's  labor, a strict enforcement of the  Sunday closing clause eif the liquor  law nnd a six months resilience as a  qualification for employment by the  corporation. With much ot this programme the Hkkald is in sympathy,  but at the same, time it is glad llint  the rumor that un attempt- was being  made to extract signed pledges from  eandirlales to favor these ideas is  unfounded.  THE PUBLIC MEETING  The   Candidates   Express  Their Views  to the Electors  The pulilic meeting held in Tapping's  Opera House nn Monday night was  well attended. AV. J. Lee was voted  into (lie chair and called upon the  candidates to express their views.  'J'. L. Haig spoke fiist. He dwelt- at  considerable length nn his ideas for  the placing of llie town nn a sanitary  basis, being in favor of a dry earth  system of closets. He held out fnr remuneration feu* llie niavnr and council.  F. McCarty said that if elected, he  would have a proper survey made of  the town as ii preliminary to the inception of a proper system of swerage.  He was not iu favor of salaries for the  inuyor und council, thinking that if a  man eoulel not give up a Utile of his  time for the benefit of the town, he  had better nnt. run fnr nllite.  H. .1. Bourne said that he had retired  from the, contest and onduised Mr.  McCarly's platform.  Aftor lhe candidates fnr the Mayor's  chair had spoken, the following gentlemen uddre-tsed the; meeting a'*= candidates for the council : T. Lewi*-, \V.  Nettle. T. J. Grahame. II. A. Brown.  -V. P.

THEIR OBVIOUS DUTY  Straight   Talk   from     Grand      Master  Galbraith  Mohtreal, March S.���������At the annual  meeting of the Provincial Grand  Orange Lodge of Quebec, Grand Master Qulbruith made' the following  reference to the Manitoba School  Question:  ."In political alfairs little has transpired during lhe year calling fnr  special notice, save that it is alleged  that tlie hierarchy, with the ctumiv-  unci! of the government,"are accomplishing by stealth and in an underhanded way the* object sought- to  be attained Iiy coercion two eir three  years ago. 1 refer to the subjugation  of tho school svstetn uf u sister province In tlie Dominion of Pome, and I  have nnly to say in this connection  that if these allegations are true, and  -we-ureriiow���������investigating���������the -fai isv  our duly is obvious when tlie electorate is next appealed to. ��������� Many of us  cast our political affiliations" to Ihe  winds nn a former'occasion, and if the  promises 11.en made are ignored, as  would appear, we are uniler nn political obligation thut I am aware nf to  support any party who have broken  faith with us." __.-  MORTON  FREWEH ON .SILVER  Drifting and Drifting Dangerously���������The  Sin of the Century  Morton Fre-.ven. the well known  London financier, speaking nf llie  out look for oil vei-, says in a tee out  note:  " Hnd it been possible to obtain  from Washington a proposal to reupen  your minis at 1 lo 22 nn cnudii inn that  the Indian mints were simullaiie-Oiislv  lluiig wide open lo llie free coinage of  rupee's, in either words, to i-estmc  silver limine!ulistn in India for "i00.-  OOD.OOO of people cm condition that vou  restiii-i'd. hi-mctulisin, we might under  tin ise conditions have advanced an ull-  iinpni La nt. step nn the road tei the  cnmplele; res titration of silver as a  iiinuey metal.

It  is a clear case lhal it hu* been possible  fur the government of the United  States for snine months lo have le-  slnred silver al the rate of SI per  ounce, but there was no one lo push  it.    II. is the sin of lhe century that it  is so."    "Ti  The Rise in Copper  The copper market presents no new  features, holding firm at 18 cents. The  fact that lhis metal maintains this,  high figme practically demonstrate..,  the contentions of the bulls tn.-it the  advance has been based upon legitimate, but nevertheless abnormal conditions. That the demand has greatly  exceeded ihe supply und that while  the latter is making strenuous efforts  to catch up. yet the pace of the foi metis by no means slow, which promises a  gond market for sonic iiientlis tocoine.  In f-ict it is our opinion thut copper  will be selling for 20 cents before the  end of 1WJ.���������Western Mining World.

IMMIGRATION  FOR 1899.
The deputy minister of the interior,
jemes A. Smart, is very sanguine m
r0��ai-d to the immigration this year
tn��the Canadian North West. A
probable estimate which he has givon
out runs as follows: Twenty thousand
British immigrants will come; a bo
jO.000 irom the United States: W
. , s iinn cr.alicians; s.uuu to iu,uu��j
S-SSSbor.^aS from 6.000 to 10.00U
from other European countries IB
ns up the total number to dO.OOO
souls and this he looked upon as a
?pSservatlve estimate. The immigra-
t on from the United ' States would
come principally from the Western
-sStes. Kansas. Iowa. Wisconsin,
were continually sending immigrants
to the country, and thc number was
increasing as ihe people hefume
���"-.Piter acoualnted with the excellent
farming facilities the Canadian�����*&&
West offered. It was not Uie^^}-
ernment's policy to iniluce,.;citizen^.ot
tbe United States- to^lgw��^ '���hen
homes and come hereSbiiij^gimply to
a��k those who wishfed^to leave to
select Canada iu preference ot any
ciher country.
KHARTOUM AS A TOURIST RESORT
When we go over to the Paris Exposition we shall all be able, if not
troke, to take iu Khartoum as a side
line. ' All that is required to get
there is to run down to -Marseilles,
takea boat to Alexandria, a short skip
to Cairo, change cars and boarel
Kitchener's new railway into tlie
Khalifas couutry. It will bo but the
matter oi a few days from Paris. Lorel
Kitchener has a due appreciation ot
the good lhat an extensive tuurist
traffic does to a country by leaving
behind it a substantial amount ot
solid coin, and he is going to tempt
tb��~ thousands of tourists who annually "visit Cairo and the pyramids to
continue their trips as far as Khartoum by erecting a mamrcoth hotel,
tn be run on the same lines as the
famous Shepheard's at Cairo. Iiy
and bv Gordon's city will make its appearance in Cook's excursion list, and
there will be cheap trips by Nile boats
_-and--o__:the._Xn __r.an_wa};_~"s jar_as tbe
junction of tiie Blue and White Nile.
That business is seriously meant is
evidenced in the fact that a contract
has already been'made with a London
house for the furnishing of the hotel,
and the agent of the contractor is already on his way up the Nile to arrange for carrying out the contract.
Very soon, therefore, will this now desolate- city become the great emporium
of  North   East  Africa.
It is significant that ihe Peninsular
and Oriental Company has carried
r-iore passengers for Egypt this season
than it has ever done before. The
dry climate of Egypt makes ii one ot
th<! best possible resorts for persons
suffering from pulmonary weakness.
It win also bo a pleasant excitement

The Roman Catholic church at Calgarv was packed at both morning and
evening services to greet the visiting
Lishops. Many Protestants attended, some showing the broad spirit ol
true Christian iiy by lending their aid
to complete the beauty ol" tne services, thus showing a graceful compliment towards' lhe distinguished
guests. It seems a pity     our new
Governor General was not imbued
with similar ideas of good taste and
courtesy. Lorel Minto was invited
last week to the requiem service held
in-Montreal in honor of thc late President Faure. He not only did not
attend, but neglected to respond to thc
Invitation. It seems very strange
tbat while the beads of other countries attended sueh services, thc representative of the Queen in Canada
did not. think il worth.while to do so,
and had not even the courtesy to have
the flag at llidciui Hall placet! at hall
mast. Minto, old chappy, you've got

Jlow is it Lhat people allow themselves to be honswagglcd by the captious laws of a railway company?
There is always some person getting
into troublo for disposing of a ticket
or portion of a ticket, which ho does
licit wish to use. Surely when a
man bus bought a ticket ��� he has a
right, as with any other form ot
property to sell it. That this has ever
been questioned is only a proof ,t ol
how strong is the domination- of 'the
lailroad power of the country. There
is no more reason why a man shoulel
not sell u railroad ticket than a plug
of tobacco, if he has bought and pan:
tor il. And the man would sell tin
tobacco if he wanted to, even if it was
done up in a papor which* stated thai
it was sold on the express condition
that the purchaser alone should chew
It.

We have long been of the belief
that public opinion is a greater regu-
lclor ol" morals than tho churches.
We also believe that social and public
minion whicli is shaping itself In
hostility to dissipation anel lutein-'
I eronee, is a much more important i'
fi dor   in   the   attainment   of   desired
,eon
icsulls than any course of talk from
the pulpit. Tlio vast majority of men
and women aro controlled in their
actions much more by what thoy believe to be the opinions of others'than
they are by what they believe to be
the best for their own physical well-
being. One may regret that human
naturo is thus 'constituted, but it is
iOle to find fault with humanity as
p whole, or Lo expect a great deal
by attempting its improvement
through methods other than those
which  it will  accept and act upon.

_r_i0___*__i i  HAD  <SHE  Nothing  Miss Tabilha Grey had not reached  thc ago ot forty-five years without acquiring an extensive and unfavorable  knowlilge ol her own sex. Men were  wicked: Jliss Grey admitted anil cle-  llerccl the fact, but il was so uiuch  in the order of nature that she had  almost ceased to cavil nl it. 13ut that  women should be wicked! Here M! _s  Grey's toleration gave oul. And so  many women, especially young women, and more especially pretty young  is omen, were wicked. It was atrocious.  Kntertaiiiiiig this general opinion.  Miss Grey, as a matter of course, held  Maggie Lester in the uniost detestation. The Waterfall hotel was, in  fact, scarcely largo enough to contain  in any comfort, Miss Gray on the on"  hand and on the other Mnegic Lester,  her brother Charles, and their friend  and travelling companion. Captain  Pctrie. It is true that the feeling ot  discomfort was confined entirely to  Jliss Grey. The young people wero  very civil to her when any o������ them  ' happened to be next her at table-  d'hotc, and at. other times thought  i (.thing about lier; but Miss Grey endured agonies cnought for an hotol  full of peoplo. She shuddered at  Maggie's sporting striped waistcoat  ar.d white sailor's knot with its golei-  eu pin, at her brown boots, at her  love of long anel liard rides, at her  not unfrcQiient slang; above all at  the terms of hearty and.familiar cam-  - aradcrie on which she thought fit to  * conduct her acquaintance with Cajit-  Potrie. The decorum of litei-ati-.ro  forbids that Miss Grey's inmost suspicions should be put in writing: it  must sufilco to say that they wore  ^very dark indeed���������so dark that all  the other ladies, to whom Miss Grey  repeated them, could not but come to  the conclusion that there must be  something in them.  One niorning.after breakfast. Miss  Grey"took lier knitting and her Church  Times and sat down on the verandah.  A moment, later, to her disgust, Charlie Lester and Captain Petrie camo  cut of the breakfast room, lit their  pipes, and after a polite gootl morning, took their seats a few yards from  her. Jliss.Grey sniffed the tobacco  tainted air', and was about to rise  r.nd ostentatiously remove herself  from the infected zone, when, she  heard a scrap of conversation between  the two young men-which entirely altered her determination. She sat  still nnd listened with all her might.  "T wonder when Maggie will be  down." saiel Lester. "I want to tell  her."  "Oh. you're, too late," saiel ' Pctrie,  "I've  told  her.'.'  "What, have you seen her?"  "Yes; I knew she'd like to know,  so I wont outside her door five minutes ago and shouted what wo heard  anei sho came out directly."  "Hail she anything on?" inquired  Lester in an interested tone.-  "No," responded Captain Pctrie;.  "but   that  made  no  difference."  "It would to me,*' said Lester with  a  smile. -'* ..- ���������.:  -"And to me." said the captain;  ,. "but it didn't to her. 1 reminded her  of it. but she saiel it made no odds���������  ������he wanted lo hear all t knew tii���������  icctly. So we stood la the passagt,  and���������"  Miss Grey had been gradually becoming more and more horrified. She  had -been prepared for ag ood deal,  but this ,was too much... And the  creature's own brother listening to  it! Hor knitting fell from her giasp.  and the need Ies jangled on the tiled  floor. The captain hastened to pick  them up. interrupting his narrative  for that purpose; but Miss Grey froze  hiin with an awful look and strode  into the house.  Miss Grey was a woman who never  ���������nl loweel-herself-to-be-turned-1 rom-tho-  path of duty, however painful that  path might be to others. She soon  mado up her mind as to what sho  must do, and, having come to a conclusion, she laid the whole matter  before an Informal committee of  three . irreproachable anel austere  matrons, ~ whom she selected from  among her fellow guests. Thc immediate result of their conference  was, that when Maggie Lester, looking fresh and blooming after ' her  morning gallop, came in to luncheon  md -took5"-her"-* place at the table, no  be tolerated. Good gracious! It  would eiuk".-".*;cr my license.  'And yo.-..* soul,' said Miss Grey,  solemnly.  "I beg your pardon, miss?" said the  proprietor.

My chief underlying principle' will  be economy as far as is consistent,  _wiili the progress and welfare of  the town. ���������..  Our town is seatti'ivil and" will  ri'ipiiie ils expenditure to be of il  most i .ireful and well considered  character.  One of the first undertakings  which our now municipality will  In- i-alled upon lo assume will lie  tliv placing of lln* town em a satisfactory sanitary basis.  This will be a lengthy task  lint one whicli in my opinion  should be coniinciiceil at" once in a  plan of n permanent, nature. Onr  principal streets will reepiire lo be  graded,   sidewalked   nnil   lighted.  An efiicie.nt system <j( fire protection will demand tlie attention of  your council.  In my opinion no salary should  be paid to the mayor nnel council.  In the handling of municipal  works the lirst to be employed  should be the residentsof the town.  Any legisliitionor project for the  advancement of the town will  receive my hearty support.  The* above is the programme  which I have mapped out and  shall endeavor to follow.
