Truly vve should beiireat fools  to sacrifice our piesent security as well  ns thnt of the futuie, and our painfully  acquired auioiioiuy for the" dotihttul  ndv.-iiilnge of sharing the foitunes of  England.  l.a Ve rite, of Quebec, (incites approvingly the following from the P.is-e  Temps of Montreal:  " ThcTBoers have the sympathy of  all.civilized countries, but, no nation  dreams of interfering on their behalf.  Tlie reason is the rivalries whiih  divide them. . Whoever should undertake to defend the Boers would give,  utiilii'.ige t.o a neighboring people and  would "cause uneasiness, with or without foundation, which would result  in complications whicli might start n  couflngration, that, little, by little,  might set the whole world aflame.  " It is assuredly on this danger lhat  England .counted lo secure her own  immunity from the consequence of  lier transgression."  And.yet there is one country in the  "world which has manifested���������timidly,  it is true,���������her love for, the strong  against the weak, for tlie execiiiicinei1  against the victim.    It is Canada!  nt. the ends nf the earth, in Asia,  Australnsin.

Loyalty lo the Queen cannot demand  of iis to do such things.  Then: is aiiolhi.i1 good one from Le  Temps of Ottawa :  '��������� The Canadian government does  not take part officially iu the Afiican  wnr. It vvill not raise any Hoop-* for  Great Brilain. but only facilitate individuals vvho may desire to go nnd tight  the Boers.

He  deserves well of liis native tonntry."  Then when  the  New   South Wide.-  Lanccrs had already arrived in London  and   detachments   from    other    Australasian   colonies   were   ahe.idy   on  their way,when American pilfers wer.;  commenting on tlie fact  that  Canada  alone of the possessions ot the Empire  wns standing aloof  and   tiie   Imperial  Government   had   sent   a   significant  hint Mint   it  wns   nbout  time  for   the  Dominion Government to decline itself  then  scared  at   Mie   rising   storm   of  loyal Canadian indignation from both  political   parties   after    a   long     and  stormy meeting in the  cabinet,  Tarte  and   his clique of  ip-Lcyalists and real  I rail ors were turned down and Laurier  was forced to  risk   the  effect  on   the  Quebec  vote  and   authorize   the  des  patch   ff    the   Canadian   contingent.

On receipt of this despatch, the  Laurier cabinet decided that, without,  however, creating a precedent which  would in any way bind the country in  the rutin e. it would be expedient/to  i'neilitale llie departure of those, who.'  through enthusiasm or-for any other  reason felt disposed to go and fight, in  Africa."   .

'___���������������������������  KRUGER THE CAUSE.  The Standard and Diggers' News, the  Doer organ, declares that 52,000 burghers in the two states are prepared to  take the field, but very much greater  forces will  bo needed      to  withstand  British power.     The "want of pluck"  shown by Britons who havo preferred  to   leave   Pretoria  rather   than   trust  themselves to  tho tender  mercies of  the  rabid  and  uncultivated   burghers  now called to arms is natural enough.  In tho Transvaal  capital they would  be unable to  help   their compatriots,  while they would-be liable in various  ways to assist tlieir enemies. In their  circumstances  it is  obvious that  the  climate of Pretoria would he very unsuitable  to  them.      What  tho Boers  will have to contend against     is tho  pluck of the British soldiers who aro  "'being poured  into South Africa in  a  way that should convince even President Kruger that* he will ere long ho  called   upon   to   "settle   up"   on  very  different terms from those lately submitted by Mr. Chamberlain. It ls notable,  too.  that  though  Mr.   Schreincr  may hint at neutrality for the Cape, the  British colonies      in ail  parts of tho  world have declared in favor of exacting justice for  the Uitlandcrs.      The  theorists who would sacrifice British  subjects and British     prestige, rather  than strike a blow on their behalf are  very few.     Our government have done  their utmost to ease the situation and  smooth the path of     justice, but the  Boers decline to let tho Ultlanders rise  above tho level of "White Kaffirs."  COLONEL STEELE'S RECALL  Tho announcement of tho recall of  Colonel S. B. Steelo from service in  tho Yukon, followed hy thc arrival of  tho colonel himself at Vancouver has  caused no little comment throughout  the Dominion. Since the supposed  promotion of Colonel Steele from the  position of superintendent of tho  North West Mounted police at Macleod  to that of commissioner in Yukon,  the administration of the Yukon has  materially improved. Colonel Steele's  well known reputation as an excellent  police officer as.well as his undoubted  integrity created a, fooling of respect  for tho administration ot the law  which had not hitherto existed. Tho  reports which arrived from Dawson of  tho results of his administration were  highly satisfactory, and there seemed  to be no need for a change.  Colonel Steele, has, however, been  recalled, and Major Perry appointed in  his place. Major Perry's chief claims  to distinction consist in tho fact that  he is a devoted adherent of the Liberal  party and that he had the honor of  heading ,the Mounted Police Jubilee  contingent in 1897. He is a good  police officer, though not any better  than many others who could be  named. He certainly is not so das~-  lingly brilliant as to justify" the removal of a capable and successful  an officer like Colonel Steele in order  to provide him with a place. The  only: possible suggestion which has  beenjiade with regardto^ the turning  down ofXolonerSteeliTis^tharhervv-as  too straight for those around him, and  not being'the sort of man who could  be induced to stand in. was in the way  of the "push."His ability and integrity  are admitted as well as the striking  improvement which has taken place In  Yukon sinco. his appointment. Tho  extracts from tvvo papers published in  Yukon in yesterday's issue speak for  themselves and show clearly that in  the opinion of those who are best  qualified to speak the removal ot Col-  oner Steele was a blunder of tho  grossest description.  tho Conservative party during the  last few weeks, namely, tho participation of Canada in the war of the  Transvaal, and, consequently, in all  others that might break out in Europe  or elsewhere."  There can be no doubt from the  foregoing, but that Mr. Tarte by his  voico anel by hJs pen objects to any  assistance by Canada to the mother  country in the present trouble in  South Africa. Neither Is there any  doubt as to where we should look for  Mr. Tarte in tlie not impossible event  of a war between Prance and Englana.  As he says himself, if he cannot be  French and British at the same time,  he prefers to be French. Should  England become involved in a war  with France the minister of public  works would be against England. This  is his position as defined by himseir.  Tho loyalty of Canada has never  been in the balance until now. Liberals and Conservatives, English and  French Canadians, have hitherto boon  ablo to assure tho world of their unswerving loyalty to the Queen of Eng-  Innil. The question of loyalty has nol  entered into Canadian politics. It is  an axiom that all the subjects of Her  Majesty in this Dominion are loyal to  thoir queen and ready to assist her  whenever  required.  Tlio  idiotic ravings of the Ancient  Ordor of Hibeniiuus. which represents  merely a small  Fection  of   the   much  maligned Irish race are ot no account.  They  are merely  tho expression      of  implacable hatred to Groat Britain by  traitors to whom their     country has  been   but  too  lenient.      But  when  a  minister of tho crown who i3 admitted  to be thc dominant member of tho Dominion 'cabinet speaks and  writes as  Mr. Tarte has done, it becomes necessary to take  some slops to vindicate  the country from the disgrace  which  ho has cast upon it.      In the matter  wo know that Mr. Tarte no     more represents the great mass of our French  Canadian fellow subjects than he represents   the   views  of      Sir  "Wilfrid  Laurier who has found     it necessary  publicly to  repudiate     thc     positior  taken hy his minister of public works.  If  necessary,       those  regiments      ol  French Canadians which  are      being  lovally offered  today will be accepted  for Her Majesty's service  in      South  Africa.      There  is no question  as to  the  loyalty  of tho French  Canadian  But so long as Mr. Tarte is allowed to  remain a member of the cabinet just  so long will tho ilisrgace which      attaches   to   his   utterances   bo   chargeable to the government ot Canada and  the people who allow him to remain  clothed  with  official  authority.      The  question  is not a political  one.  It if  ono     which     affects     every  citizen,  whether  ho  be  Liberal  or  Conservative.     The first duty of-    the     loyal  people of Canada is     to relegate Mr  Tarte to a position where his utterance will bo valued for what they are  worth  and   no  more.      Then   in   our  next war, he will be in a position to  assume  command of      the      Ancient  Order of Hibernians, where his anti-  British sentiments will no doubt     bt  properly, appreciated.  and  to  support and  uphold tho  dig- | WHITE, GWILtilM &  SCO  nity of'British law nnd government.  We have only to add in conclusion  that the Colonel has no knowledge of  what notion we are taking. He is too  much of a soldier to connive at any  action subversive of military disclp-  ! line, but will so far as he is concern-  The Dawson Daily News of Septem- loll| 0ijey the order   . in clue     course,  her  11th  says:  When the report was first noised  about that Col.

The  shareholders got 9 per cent in dividends and $125,000 was added to tin-  rest fund, while $50,000 wont to reduce  tho bank premises account.. It seems  to be the growing time vvith thi"  favorite bank.  It is suggested that in future races  for the American Cup, the challenger  should be obliged to bring his wind  with him. Tho recent ovations to  Admiral Dewey seem to have exhausted tho American supply.  THE COUNTRY AND  MR. TARTE  Hon. David Alills used to be described by Sir John Alacdonald as "a  mass of undigested information."' The  statement attributed to Mr. Mills-by  Free Press to the effect that the only  settlers who object ro the Galiciniit  and Doukhobors are ranchers, show,  that r. Mills' digestion has not, improved to any appreciable extent.0  BOER  IGNORANCE  Hon .J. Israel Tarte, minister ot  publio works in the government ot  Canada, has proved himself to be a  disloyal subject of Her Gracious Ma  jesty Queen Victoria, ami as such Has  no right to a scat in any cabinet or  ganized on Briiish principle!). In  order that there should bo no misunderstanding as to tho evidence of  Mr. Tarte's disloyalty and the source  from which that evidence is obtained,  the following extracts from Mr. Tarte's  paper. La Patrie, and from Mr. Tarte's  speech at Alontreal last Monday evening are quoted below:  Air. Tarte in La'Patric: Z  "Wc are in America, Canada has  not, and should not have, any ambition to play a role in European diplomacy. We believe? wo are not mistaken when we say that the population of this country has no other desire  than to develop quietly its resources,  and to live at peace with the world.  We! are willing to defend the land we  live in and the British flag, whicb  protects it, against all aggression, but  it is another thing to go beyond  this role, and to throw us into thc  diEcussions and wars -with which  Europe:is constantly,menaced.  "What have we to do with things in  Africa? What interests have we in  the Transvaal? Why should we take  the money and the blood ot our people  to spend them ln such far-away  regions ?"  Mr." Tarte.'at the Hcrbetto banquet,  Montreal, Monday night last:  "I am a minister in' a British, government, and I have the right to say  that I am French. But, I tell you  this: If to declare myself a British  subject would prevent me from being  -- An F.ngli.-hman who . . has..resided  amongst the Boers in South Africa,  commenting upon their ignorance oi  anything outside their own farms,  told how some 20 years ano the Boer,  of the Orange Free State refused to  have telegraphic communication established.  The chief objector was an old Boer  who, when the others wero wavering,  rallied them to his side with the following ingenious argument.     Said he*  "No doubt, tho telegraph is a fine  thing, but as to its enabling us to br.  news from other countries at all time:  and seasons, how can this be? l'~  there not a ume in thc year when Lt"1-  waggons have to cease running  bcause ot the drought? Surely, then,  this telegraph will perish for want of  wetter!"  This argument vvas sreatly applauded, and   the   Boors  to a man      voted  against the Innovation. "   o   AN*   IRISHMAN'S   WILL  would  bo relieved of such an important command just at the time when  ho had restored order     out of chaos  and who has tho entire conlidence of  all classes, irrespective of nationality,  indeed thoso were not wanting     who  remarked  that  it was      because  Col.  Steele  is  too  good,  too just,   upright  and honorable us a man and an officer  to suit the powers     that be.     Those  remarks aro probably unjust, but they  show the esteem in which Col. Steele  is hold, and the regret everywhere expressed at his forthcoming departure,  lt is  the custom of thc      Canadian  "government to transfer     commanding  ollicers and  others at stated      times.  I'he  period,  however, being      usually  from two lo three years, and the samc  is  true  of  nearly  till   other countries  who transfer officers and men at stated  Intervals from,    garrison to garrison.

Col. Steele has always shown himself  .he friend of the miner. He has af-  "orded tho miners ample protection  a every possible way at his command,  .n this connection may be mentioned  .he furnishing of escorts from tho  iiffercnt creeks during the clean-up  season last spring and summer.

He was the second man to enlist in  '.he North Wost Mounted Police force,  and has seen 20 years o" service. He  ias risen from the ranks to his present  aosition solely by his ability.honSSty  and peculiar fitness for the service.  Col. Steelo comes of a fighting  nock, his father. Elmas Steele, having  beon a captain in the British navy.  He is a native of North Simcoe, Ont.  P.efore going to his now post he will  visit Montreal, Ottawa and other  eastern  cities.  The Yukon Sun and Klondike Times,  'he official newspaper of Yukon territory. Henry .7. Woodside. managing  -ditor, on the 12th of September last,  said:  A  Bad Blunder���������Lieut. Col. Steele To  Be Recalled.  although wo are satisfied he is absolutely in the dark as to the reason for  his unwarranted arid unexpected  recall.  The Dawson Daily News of September 11th editorially said:  As announced elsewhere in today's  issue of Tho News, Col. S. B. Steele,  the efficient and popular commander  of tho North West Mounted Police in  the Yukon district will soon be transferred to another post. This is to be  deplored. The News feols sure that  it voices the sentiments of evory resident of the territory when it says that  tho loss to the country is almost irreparable. No matter how worthy or  efficient Col. Steele's successor may  be in the estimation in the people  of the Klondike, Col. Steele's place  will bo less worthily filled. There  must he good and sufficient reasons for  a man to hold such a high place in  the esteem of the peoplo as does Col.  Steele. And tliero are. During his  residence in tho Klondike, liis administration of affairs has nover boon  culled in question by press or people.  When charges of inefficiency, incompetence, favoritism and corruption  wore made against other government  officials, no word was over breathed  aciiinsl Col. Steele. His record has  been without spot or blemish. By his  straightforward, honorable course ho  bus commanded the respect and confidence of the entire pooplo. He has  proved to be a mnn of great executive  ability, and excellent disciplinarian, of  undoubted moral courage, a niitillty as  much needed in discharging the multifarious duties his command imposed  upon him, ns of tho physical kind.  It is to be regretted that, tho government has seen fit to recall Col.  Sloclo. It is an act of unwisdom.  While wo deeply regret his retirement,  wc can assure Col. Steele that the hest  wishes  of the people  go with      him.

Just imagine ore,  the nick of a shipment, of which ran  $]2l'to the sack.     This was the caso  with tive sacks of Nottio L. ore.      It  was equivalent to ?1.00 a pound. Then  lho balance of the 15 ton      shipment  was $140 to the ton.      It throws the  famed  Silver Cup  into tho shade  although it is accounted an exceptionally  rich-property,  and  as  far  as  tho  high grade Reco of the Slocan is concerned, it has a competitor     for tho  honor of having the     richest ore in  British Columbia,  which will  best it  for  tlio reason that while  its  ore  is  just as rich it has a great deal more  of it.     The.ore in this shipment was  taken from two streaks which    '-average about eight inches in width, and  which  appear  to  bo  getting stronger  as thc work progresses.  Work has been commenced on tho  Maybee, another claim in the Nettoe L  group, and which has a better surface showing than even the Nettie L.  This property adjoins the latter to  the northwest and-is the parent claim,  the others "being extensions of it.

Thc cablcgiam announe-i Mafoklng In force lun wcre    rcpulscil  SPEECH  BY MU.  CHAMBERLAIN  Criticising  the  Action of the  sition.  Oppo-  Londoit, Oct. 20.���������The floor and naileries wero densely crowded today in  tho hoiiEe of commons in the anticipation of a<; speech by the secretary of  state for the colonics on the government's policy in South Africa. Chamberlain began with a severe criticism  of the action of the opposition at the  previous meeting of parliament.  Their statements were, he said, calculated to encourage President Kruger  in his resistance and to embarass the  government's most difiicult and most  critical functions. Referring to Lord  "stanhope's demand yesterday for tin  production of his (Chamberlain's)  letter to Mr. Hawkesley, he said ho  would gladly produce his letter if Si;  William Vernon Harcourt and Mr  Morley, who were the members of tin  South African committee, demandet  it.  Speaker Wm. Court Gully intervene--  saying that the language of the colonial secretary was beyond the parliamentary bounds. Chamberlain retorted that it was impossible to ado  cpiatcly describe Stanhope's accusation  and that ho (Chamberlain) and Si:  Alfred Milner of tho war irovernmer  welcomed all honest and " honorauU  ciiticlsm of iheir policy, and Chamberlain said 1 wish I couul appt;,  ihese epithets to tlie speech of tl..  ���������..ember  for  Eurnlcy.  to bo at Maribogo, 40 miles south ot j a o wing_thoni_c ves to be  Mafeking, and it was evident that tho J> the Goers vvho were e  object  o'f the  enemy was  to  get  the   tnevo thoir i^.tion      The  object  British between two fires. Vryburg  where tho first blow was struck at an  armored traiii is still furthor south of  Maribogo. The critical position of  Colonel Baden-Powell has all along  been recognized here, but his reputation as a gallant officer makes it  certain he will give a good account of  himself as is evidenced by the heavy-  loss he inflicted on the enemy. His  opponent, General Cronje, is the commander who was sent to stop the  Jamieson raid in 1S9G. and is said to  bo a stern fighter with about 5.000  men under him. Baden-Powell has  not more than 2,000 British soldiers  in Mafeking, only 12 miles west of tho  -Transvaal border, and the policy of  Cronje apparently was to isolate the  British forces there and then destroy  them. The battle which is reported shows that he met a stout and successful resistance from the British.  The capture of Mafeking would leave  thc road open to Kimberley and allow  Cronje to concentrate at that important point. Ho would then bo in a  position to check the march of the  British reinforcements.  Small  Pox Breaking Out.  ���������    Cape Town, Oct.

ACCIDENT TO TIIE SHAMROCK  Next Race Will Be Sailed Thursday  New York. Oct. IS.���������On the Coltim  bia's deck a consultation was held  which resulted in the decision that  the Shamrock should be allowed one  day to repair damages and the next  race will be sailed on Thursday. It  will be 15 miles to leeward or windward. The return found that tlie  direct cause of the accident wa3 the  parting of the port top mast shroud  in the nip, that is a portion of the  _steel wire rope resting in the spreader  ���������which extends out.broad from the  rounds of the lower mast. The  strands of wire easily chafe and rust  at that point, especially when the  shroud is slacked by being to leeward.  be drawn in  igor to re-  rhey again advanced to the attack and were drawn  ovor the lyddite mines laid for the  defense of the town. II is reported  that 1,500 were killed by tho explosion.  CROWDS AT THE WAR OFFICE  London, Oct. 20.���������Yesterday was tho  must exciting day known at the war  oflice since tho crowd attended there  to learn the result of the relief expedition sent to Gordon at Khartoum.  Thc new:i that the Fifth Lancers had  been engaged brought many ladies and  friends of thc regiment to inquire the  news. Tho greatest intelligence today  seems to be the capture of a train  with officers nt Elandslaagt because it  was understood that the whole cross  country line vvas regularly patrolled.  CAPTURE OF VRYBURG  Mafeking news is still confined to a  repetition of stories that Colonel  Baden-Powell mowed down 300 Boers  with his maxims. The surrender of  Vryburg is not of great importance,  but will be regarded throughout  Uoerdom as a splendid triumph over  .the British. Some military critics  think it is not possible that General  sJir .George Stewart White may be  about to withdraw his forces from  Glencoe and concentrate them at Lady-  r-Eiiih and there await developments.  WAlt OFFICE BULLETIN  The war office this afternoon, issued  the following bulletin:  "Thc cavalry attached to our forces  at Ladysmith and Dundee are engaged. Steps have been taken .to  r.ecuro Pietermariczburg and Durban  against taids on the western frontier.  There is no recent reliable intelligence  from Kimberly or Mafeking, both  places" being cut oft from '��������� telegraph  communication. lt is believed, however, that a skirmish took placc_ on  Sunday about six miles south of Kim-  ���������berley and that tho Boers were  I beaten off with some loss by an armed  train. There was some fighting at  Mafeking- Friday or Saturday, ending  with the repulse ot the attacking  forces. The Boers . in considerable  numbers assembled opposite Alival  and north of Bethula on tho Orange  River railway, so that communication  with tho Orange Free Stato and the  Transvaal has now- ceased, the remaining refugees having been warned  to leave by .Delagoa Bay.  CANADIAN VOLUNTEERS  Will  Serve  as   a Distinct    Regiment  In  the Transvaal.  Toronto. Oct. IS.���������Dr. Borden, the  minister of militia, is in the city today. The chief reason for his visit  to the city was to consult Colonel  Otter regarding the local officers who  will accompany the Canadian contingent to the^ Transvaal. Dr. Borden confirmed the statement that the  Canadians would serve in South  .Africa as a distinct Canadian regiment and not in units attached to different regiments in the regular army.  _���������   o   POSTAL FACILITIES  Ottawa, Oct. 20.���������All officers of the  French Canadian company have been  selected .

Winnipeg, Oct. IS.���������At S o'clock  last evening a man was found lying  dead opposite tho golf grounds near  Portage avenue. There .was a bullet  hole in the forehead from which  blood was oozing down the face which  toM the story of a horrible murder.  .The man's name is John Gordon, and  up to last night lived with his father  as a market gardener In Portage  avenue west. He was 25 years old  and 'married. Robbery is tho only  motive that is advanced for tho deed  at present. No theory of suicide is  thought of as no revolver could bo  found and the position of the unfortunate man shows that ho could not  have disposed of it after the deed.

During the past two  years wolves aro said to have Increased rapidly,both in ihe Western States  and In Canada. While the wolf evil  is serious enough in Alberta to csul  for the payment of bounties, wo have,  to go to Oklahama to find tho troublo  In ouo of its most aggravated foims.  The heavy reward of ������20 for each  full grown wolf acalp, olfered last  February by the Oklahama Ijivo  Stock association, together with ij  bounty by Woodward county,, has induced a number of persons to undertake the extermination of wolves  in mat portion of tho country.  There is a wide difference of opinion among frontieismen as to the  host way to capture wolves. Some  .nalntaln that poison is the quickest  iind surest, while others say tliat  iho use of traps is the only successful niothod. lt is hardly to bo cl  iiietl that poisoned meat is now largely a failure. Twenty-five yoars ago  it was an easy matter to poisun  wolves; strychnine was now to theni  nd incy were destroyed by hundred*.  hey have become experts in detecting it however, and a-sho woif can  saach her whelps to distinguish uo-  ivecn pure and poisoned moats. Some  . 'ill'en.en run down thc wolves with  picks of hounds but that is laborious  ��������� nul   costly.  i Id ���������liters say that trapping is  most trustworthy way to kill wolves.  The remarkable sagacity of tho animal makes even trapping a tax on  lhe shrewdness and ingenuity of the  trapper. The first fling necessary It  o Kill the odor of tho iron, which is  lone by smoking the traps with cedar  rubbing them with beeswax or dip-  oing them in blood. Wolf lures, such  is asafoedita, aniseed oil or oil of  petroleum are condemned, as l heir  inly effect is to make the animals  ���������"uspicious.  The trapper begins by tying to a  wagon a large piece of beef, venison  it- antelope which is dragged over  ���������-.ho country whore the traps are lo  be set. Wolves liko to run In cow  trails, and a spot where a number f  trails ci oss is a good place to set.  traps. Some , hunters put thoir traps  where the wolves can walk into them  ���������vhilo others lure the wolves by baits.  Traps should not be sot in deeply  >.-o,-i. parts of the path, as wolves  travel on the higher parts. The necessary equipment for setting trap"  "s, in addition to shovels, a couple  jf largo blankets or sheets, a bucket  of fresh blood, a couple or three rao-  b'ts. a beef liver, a pound of cotton  ������������������ool and the paw of a wolf or cayote.  _n old trapper describes the actu.il  jeiang of the traps as follows..  As soon as the drag has been passed ovor the chosen spot, the first  li.ing the trappers must do is to dip  tl.eir boots and implements in thu  blood, then spread the blankets on  the ground and proceed to put on  these, first the. pod, which is to be  carefully removed, and afterwards the  'oose earth as' it is dug out of the  holes that are to hide the logs to  which the traps arc fastened. When  the holes are ready bury the logs ar.d  chains with great caro. .-replacing the  -sod and leaving no trace whatever of  any disturbance of thc earth. , Then  in the trail dig the- shallow holes  that are to receive the traps, -and be  sure that they are just deep enough  to be level with the trail, whon there  is a quarter of an inch of dirt over  the pan. As soon as each trap is  *et in place, lift "the loose jaw until  it is perpendicular, and insert undur  the pan a piece of cotton wool large  enough to prevent any dust o: i-.iml  falling beneath it. as this would en  cirely hinder thes pringing of the  trap. In handling the trap and  ?a'.t_ that covers it wear a pair of  Tloves dipped in blood. When all the  traps arc properly concealed and the  surplus earth on the blanket has been  carried away.take one of the rabbits,  .md use it as a brush to remove all  laces of your feet or tools. . Then  '.scatter pieces of meat or rabbit-over  :he tiaps. It is a good plan also to  use the foot of a wolf or rabbit  use the foot ofa wolf or a cayote lo  make a series of tracks over the  ^aps, and finally when all this is  done, to, dip the tail of a beef iu  blocd and sprinkle the place. A setting of traps every two miles is con-  -idered'-'enoiigh, tut the thicker the  better.  The dust over the pan should be  a little more even'than elsewhere, a.3  wolves like to tread on a smooth  place. A piece of white cotton ar  a tuft of white feathers properly  placed often adds a good finish to  the setting, as a wolf, attracted by  the general scent of the blood will  at onco see and minutely examine the  white_obje.ct.Z Dark, stormy,   -cold  nights   are  the  best    for    the   wolf  trapper.  s  COMPANY.  SCARCITY OP CANADIAN SHIPPING  1        -    Ottawa, Oct. 18.���������For the last three  years the scarcity of Canadian shipping on the upper lakes forced a  great deal of Canadian wheat to go  by the Buffalo route which might the  ���������other way have gone by Montreal.  'This position of things is becoming  much more pronounced during the  'last few months.

W.S.Fot'd. agent for Stuart fi Bird's  NOTE AND COMMENT.  Eugene V. Debs' lecture last Monday niglit contained'much food for  rellcctiiiti. It is becoming quite obvious to those who take any care to  observe the social movements going  on boforo their eyes, that tlie present  state of things is only transient. In  fuct it is the rapidity of the evolution  now taking place which perhaps its  most striking feature..-.? The introduction of machinery among the weavers  of ..'Lancashire and the cutlers and  woolen .spinners of Yorkshire only  took place when our tiithc'i's were  boys. Since then civilized society has  run the whole gamut from the individual workman toiling at the loom iu  his own cottage to the gigantic iwiiiii-  factui'ing trusts of the day, which are,  one may almost say, flic creatures of  this very decade, which now is drawing to a. close. In great cities the  economic changes, .whicli aie so rapidly  evolving, are more" noticeable than in  the smalt communities of a nevv country like British Columbia. Still we  cannot, and do riot, escape entirely  from their influence and the veiy fact  of our newness causes not, a few Lo ask  whether it would not he as well to  follow the lead of our sister colonies  in Australasia and introduce some of  the socialistic ideas, such as the Government ownership of railroads, telegraph lines nnd other branches of  highly [organized business, while the  stage is still comparatively speaking  clear. The ideas comprised under the.  term of the Co operative Commonweal ch are very attractive and this  rising and progressive province of  Western Canada seems tn the Hekald  to be n very possible stage for the  experiment of some of Iheni in the not  far distant ful lire.

What  has been clone on this occasion .is only  a sample of what, wnuld lie done if tlie  Empire were in any real danger.  From the number .of applications  received by the lieadqnaiteis in this  province, it, is plain that without the  least trouble the whole Canadian contingent of 1,000 could'haye been raised  in British Columbia, alone, while in the  older provinces of the Dominion whole  battalions would be eager Lo sail if Lhe  Imperial Government would only be  obliging enough to require their services. This is the prime significance  of the despatch of the contingents���������  tint the quarrel of the Empire, no  tinnier where, is the quarrel of every  part of it, and not only, as heretofore,  of the mother country.
