In all the changes we have made  during the past ten years thc living identity and individualism of this store has always  remained characteristically permanent, bold and striking. It is an outcome of our  policy. We believe in change. What progressive man doesn't ? The growth of our  city demands- that its best stores must grow with it pari passu. We change inside  methods, too. It is not all surface change with us. Ten years ago we wanted bigger  profits���������everybody did.    Some do still,    Our ideas on that score have changed.  Bear that in mind, for if absorbed as  truism, it will be to your profit not only  irom the viewpoint of character, but also  as to your worldly possessions. Novv let  us see if we can change our ideas. We  are supposedly talking to the man who  doesn't    trade   here.

Escourt Relieved and Communication Re-Established  METHUEN'S FIGHT AT GRASPAN  Fifty Miles South of Kimberley on the  Cape to Cairo Line.���������The Guards and  Naval Brigade' Lose Heavily.���������Next  Fight Expected at Modder River.���������  Joubert Concentrating His Forces  Round Ladysmith.  [SPECIAL DESPATCH TO TIIE HKIIALD.]  %*4*+*4F***0������������4f4F0****4***t, ���������*4'4t&'4W44*'0^���������***C4f4*WS*'***4*'*^  London, Nov. 27.���������Sdecial despatches from Pieterniaritzbiirg announce the arrival of Gen. Buller  there. He met with (,a splendid  reception Railway communication  between Estcourt and Mooi river hns  been leslored by Lord Dutidonald's  forces and the Mooi river column  entered Estcourt yesterday (Sunday).  The Estcourt column immediately  started an advance against Colenso.  London, Nov. 27.���������No fuither news  respecting Lord Methuen's advance  has been leceived and the absence of  official details regarding his losses  created the greatest suspense, especially since the publication of the heavy  sacrifices endured' iiy the naval  brigade. No.alarm. however, is felt as  to bis position, despite the evidence  that the Boers intend to contest every  toot of the way.1 It was known (hat  in the absence of sufficient cavalry he  would be compelled to advance slowly  and he has a, prefeience for night or  or early dawn attacks, which events  seem to have justified the Boers being  decidedly averse to darkness for their  operations. The fact that in the  Gr.ispan action one British battery  fired 500 rounds proves the desperate  nature of the fight and'there is little  doubt that the casualties were heavy.  Ic is now known that'no guns weie  captured iu the Belmont engagement.  Meanwhile the news from Natal is  distinctly more hopeful from a British  point of view.  Details are rather vague but it seems  ceitain that the Boers aie retiring,  that railway communication is being  opened and tbat the British lelief  forces are joining hands. All this with  Buller's arrival at Pietermaritzburg  .is expected to make matteis move  briskly soon. Gen. Hildyards recon-  haisatiee it praised as work .of very-  great difficulty, admirably executed.  The,hostiital tr.iin arrived at Orange  River in'the nick of time from Cape-  tow.n, and sent to Belmont a train constructed on the corridor system with  beds and ranged in tiers on either side.  On its return to Orange River with  the wounded.-it was found that a number were able to walk. ,but there were  many stretcher cases. The tioops in  c'.niip.lin'ed the romo from- the station  the .hospital.' The wounded.- weie  cheeiftil and as they limped along supported by the medical orderlies exchanged chaff with the soldiers iu the  c.iowd. - ' :  'Lind Methuen's forces-had a desperate actiun" with 2,500 Boers near Gias-  p.m.'iioi th of Belmont, The. heights  weie carried, the enemy losing heavily.

The Boers re-  lieated on the line, where- the Oth  Grenadiers were planted to intercept  them. * The fighting was despeiate iin-  till 10 a.m. when the heights were carried.- The result was not known at  the time of telegraphing. The artill-  eiy took immediate advantage of the  enemy's retirement.  The Estcourt forces made a successful attack on November 23rd on the  enemy occupying Beacon hill. British  loss was 15 killed aud 70 wounded.  The enemy retired.  The flying column left Durban to  support Estcourt. Telegraphic com  miiiiii-ation hus been restored? at  Est court. ,  The naval "irigado suffered a loss of  105 in the battle at Graspan on Saturday, 11 being killed.  lt is reported at Capetown that Gen.  Methuen is going light through to his  destination, -lie ctiptuied a train  north of Graspan and len million  louiiils of iiiiimiinitioii.  London, Nov. 2S���������A fresh interruption Lo the East African cable service  at lhi_ inlci-'stinguiometil has caused  a cessation of war news. As0yet the  war office has not received Lord  Methane's detailed list of casualties,  nor is there any information at hand  regarding the wheieabouls of the  Ninth Lancers, who were sunt in pursuit of the Boers fiom Gtaspan. The'  Daily Mail says that a private telegram announces that the Lancers are  still stoiiling abend of'Melliuen'_ advancing column, hut as he announced  yesterday that he was giving bis men  a day's lest, this is baldly possible.  Indeed the greatest anxiety is felt,  moie especially in view of thc fact thai  the Berlin Journal, which icgalnrly  prints Boor communications announced before it could have been ascertained from British sources, that thc  Naval brigade lost 100 men at Giaspun  and the Ninth Lancers were captuted.  ft is understood that the government yesterday decided to proceed  immediately with the mobilization  and embarkation'of the Sixth Division  of 10,000 men, under a well-known  Lieutena nt-General.  Gen. Hildyard's achievement at  Beacon Hill might be recognized as  one of the best things in the campaign  yet shown as it relieved the tension of  the situation in Nntal and brought the  relief of Ladysmitli within practicable  distance. Buller appears to be confident of General .Methuen's ability and  is devoting all his energy in the relief  of Ladysmitli. An attempt will lie  made piesumiibly to leiah Colenso in  time to cut off the ietre.it of the Boeis  from Weenen ovei the Tugela river.  It is feared, however, that, tlie enemy  will get there fiist and destroy the  bridge. At Freer bridge the British  found two massive spans utterly  wrecked by dynamite, one piece  weighing 34 pounds having been hurled 200 yards.  Sir Alfred Miller warned thefvarions  relief comiuiltees at Capetown to be  prepared for the in-rival of 10.000  refugees from Kimberley as soon as  the siege has Iieeipraised." According  to a despatch from De Aar, dated  Sunday, the Boeis destuiyed the  bridge at Steynburg on the pteyinus  da j' and weie being reinforced at that  point.    ,  The colonial office lias received the  following despatch ft nm the. Governor  of Natal, dated Pietermaritzburg.  Sunday. The Boeis were leliiingou  Weenen. bul Llie tioops occupying the  ridge three miles iiorthwaiil ol tlie  Muni river, itnppears lhat the Boers  found our position too sliong and  were tetiring tomiid Ladysmith with  the loot lhey have collected. The  river is in flood. Buller bus airived.  Telegraphic comuiiuiiciitiou was restored this morning. The commander-  in-chief at the Cape has sent the  admiralty an additional list of casualties among the British n.ivil brigade  engaged in the battle at Graspan as  follows: r  - One midshipman of the cruiser  Doris, ten sailors anil marines killedj-  tbiileen petty officers and seventy-six  non-com missioned ofliceis of the  marines wounded; total number of  casualties including the names of those  already reported are 105.  London, Nov. 27.���������At Wellington  hart auks the following telegram, nu-  dated, has been posted from Colonel  Graubbe of the Greiiudieis, respecting  the light at Belmont: Gienadieis on  right and Scots Guards on left, successfully carried the heights east of  Belmont. The battalion fully maintained its reputation of the regiment.  The casualty lists show that in addition to Lieut. Fryer killed and Colonel  Graubbe and six other officers wounded  21 men were killed and 87 wounded  with five'uii.u-coiitiled for.  Tu General Methuen it appeals  belongs the honor,ot the fiist real  British victory of the , piesent war. as  Belmont was the first battle, afler  which the British advanced instead'of  retreating. . The fact that Methuen  was forced to fight a second pitched  battle'near-the scene ��������� of the first,  shows that* the .Boers were not demoralized' at Belmont, _but quickly  rallied' and with unabated '.t mirage  met the splendid assault of the British  naval hi igade at Graspan.  j-The excellent, militaiy*-' qualities  displayed by the Boers in- these two  fights weie no doubt partially .derived  fiom the_ training of Commandant  Abrecht. ii former officer of the Austrian army. .. Presumably,,..' Methuen  has already resumed his inarch forward  when last heard he was still nearly 50  miles fiom Kimberley aiid a battle  will have to be fought at Modder river  befoie the Diamond City is relioved.

TWO  RAILWAYSJN  LARDEAU  Kaslo & Slocan Is Going Ahead With  Construction Work.  The railway situation in the Lardeau  country is decidedly interesting. Eli  Dick and John Mi-Kane are back from  a visit to that section. "The Kaslo ic  Slocan company, controlled by Jim  IIHI. has 350 men at work ou its line,  from the head of Kootenay Lake."  said Mr. Dick in discussing tlie mutter.,  "That road is now building up one.  side of the Duncan river, while the  Canadian Pacific has been constructing a parallel line just across tho  stieani. Just now Mr. Hill has things  all his own way, as the C.P.R. outfit,,  has suspended work for the. winter.  On the other hand, Kaslo & Slocan  "people are pushing steadily ahead to  reach the summit at once.  "The Canadian Pacific reached Duncan   first,   and   practically    built    all*  around the town in oider to shut its  rival out.   The K.   &   S.   people   how.  ever took an appeal  to  the  Dominion"  government and  won  the point.

For the past half dozen  yeats  the Lardeau has  been   held   back   for  IVlck of transportation   facilities.'   but*  now   the   section   promises   to    have'  railways in ample , quantity. - For  the.  most p.iK the  ores-over  the'district'  are of silch low grade that with  trans -  portation they will be* very'profitable,*  but packing or,wagon hauls would cut*'  off all tlie.profit.-���������lidssla'ud Record."    ������,-  . ~ I  NORTH FORK OF THE LARDEAU  \      .   . ���������  Some Promising Properties in this Camp  Which Will be Shippers as Soon as  the Railway Gets in.  Eight miles from Ferguson on the  North Fork of the Lardean.* Tom  Borne has located a fine ^rmip of three  claims in the Black -Wan ior. The  surface shewings are splendid and the  ledge can be traced without difficulty  for 500 feet across the propeity. Mr.  Home, single handed, has driven a  tunnel 100 feet onto the lead giving a  depth of about 125 feet. Tbe ledge is  25 feet wide and carries galena* and  gray copper going all the wiiy from  100 to 2000 iind 3000 oz. to the ton in  silver. There is a vein of two feet *of  clean ore exposed in the tunnel. - The  Iocation"6f_the pi'6pefty_iS~ex'fellinTt"'  without danger from slides, e.isily  actessible and with plenty -of wood  and water. Four or five ein loads, of,  ore could be taken nat for shipping in j  a few days, if it was desirable to do.so.'  On the Ferguson side of the. Little  Robert, another promising property  belonging to J. Kirkpatrick on which  the owner is now stinting in on a 300  foot tunnel.  Next to tbe Little Robert is located  the Black Diamond, a property with  magnificent shewings and perhaps one  of the most wonderfully defined ledges  iu Kootenay, the walls being as tegular and smooth as if artifical. The  ledge is 20 feet' wide and 100 feet of  tunnel has been mn in on it.  Beyond the Black Warrior lie the  Old Gold and Piimro-e prupertief.iiow  being developed under lhe management of J, W.

Smith and  Cha������.  Ross  of Spokane, returned last week to Ferguson from a trip  of inspection  over  the Great Western  mountain  mining  properties.   They report seeing several very promising propet ties,  mostly  with very little being done on any of  them except the Clipper where (heie  has been  considerable woik done of  latp.     The   Clipper   certainly   shows  that with fuither development it is  bound to become one of the principles  shippers of that vicinity and the present showing should he a big incentivp  to owners of adjacent claims to push  ������ork on  their   respective   properties.

As Mr. Haldane had the honor of  traversing the land under the kind  auspices of Lord Aberdeen, and other  distinguished people, through whose  joint influences every source of knowledge was thrown open to him; as he  has ������lso been a consulting engineer  since 1S73, and the author of several  admirable books and .popular illustrated lectures, .including one entitled  S.SOO miles from East to West on  British Soil, there is no doubt that  the volume will be carefully prepared  in every respect.  The book will be dedicated to the  late governor general, who has mest  kindly sent the author a letter for  publication in it, expressing his personal knowledge of the extent and  comprehensiveness of the tour referred to, the chapters concerning* which  will, he hopes, be perused by many  readera with interest and advantage.

II. is hard  to believe    thc    stories  about tbe misuse by thc Boers of the  whito flag, and yet the charge is made  so repeatedly and with  such circumstantial detail that it is equally difiicult that the war correspondents ave  deliberately  lying.      Tho Boers havo  ti-patcd cur wounded nnd the prisoner-,  vho have fallen into their hands with  irreat consideration.     Had our troou .  been lired at on  only    ono    occasion  after the white fins hnd been hoisted,  we might have thought thc   supposed  treachery     was due     to a misunderstanding". When the same thing lino-  nens after nearly   every   engagement  what else can peonle think than that  the white flag is hoisted for ihe purposo of luring the British soldiers intn  the Boer fire, or that the enemy are  so undisciplined that whilst one section ask for ouartor others n~-o 'dot"'--  mined  to  continue the fighting.

McEACHREN'S ViEWS  OF. THE  SPLENDID   CONDITION   OF  THE NORTH WEST RANCNES.  f  THE QUESTION  OF OIL.  Hon. Mr. Sifton has been' touring  the west and talking politics everywhere. Mr. Fielding is on a political tour in Nova Scotia, Mr. Blair  in New Brunswick, Sir "Louis Davies  in Prince Edward Island and Mr.  Mulock in Ontario. Not a single one  of these gentlemen has a word to sny  on the question of oil which used io  he their favorite topic five years uso.  They had many grievances five  years "ago. but they probably talked  more about the oil duties and the  oil combine than about any other one  thing. The reformers have beeu three  and a half vears in power and what  is the state of the- oil question?  Three years ago at least we had some  competition between the Standard  Oil combine of the United States ami  the Imperial Oil Company of Canada.  Now the Standard Oi! Company has  absorbed the other, and we have r.n  absolute monopoly. Half the oil  -oris in Canada have been closed up.  Th'e "combine has obtained control of  railway transportation rates, so that  an independent importer is forced out  "of business'"or"ruined"if"lie"undert;iid'*i-  to compete. Lastly, the price of oil  lias, according to the sworn testimony  of one dealer, been forced up five  cents' per gallon. The cost of oil h.is  certainly increased all along the Iin.,  and the" poor consumer, who was l'"il  to expect so much from the reformers,  has got more than lie expected. So  far as is known the ministers who  'formerly found oil so pleasant and  profitable a theme for campaign talk,  have refrained from even mentioning  the word since parliament rose.  WHAT  DOES  HE  MEAN?  On his return east a few *ivs ago  the "Winnipeg Free Prees interviewed  ]5r. McEachran, Dominion Veterinary  Inspector, and published the following: o  "Dr. McEachran is the manager of  one of the biggest ranching concerns  in the west, the Walrond Handling  company and naturally bus an inter  est in advancing as much as pfs-sil-ie  the price of cattle to the r.i'.thero.  Il Is with this end in view that he  has always made such a v i^orous  effort to stamp out diseases from time  to time by quarantine and other  -r.eans. He has lately come in for  some pretty harsh criticism on this  stots by cattle exporters and dealer?  tvho are not particularly desirous of  paying high prices to the ranchmen.  Referring to the attacks that "nave  been made on him the doctor stated  that If he was given the privilege of  publl.klng th* true motlv* which has  li_7_n������4 t_e_3, the dealers would re-  jiret tkat tier had braucht tie ques-  __������ wp.*  "What 5s "ii������ trtia taotlre" wiiich  has 1mp~_ll__ criticism ef LM-., Me-  Eachm. ������om-������.on Veterinary Tn-  fpeetor an_ "manager of onc of the  Hsgest ranching concerns in the  west?" Tf there is anything :n the  threat contained in the _ last para-  frapn. his superiors should at onco  rive Dr. McEachran leave i ���������> <"-~:pnsp  It. Let whoever can give- him thc  rrivllese he asks for at or.ee.  The "thin red line of 'eroes" doesn't  teem to be doing half as much execu  -Ifa&2 B^ *'fm thick blue lino    of  jiress t  Cattle in Fine Condition- Thc Value of  the British Columbia Market.  Dr. Duncan McEachran, chief in-  specto of stock for the-Dominion  government, has returned from lus  regular visit to Alberta and the  Canadian North West, says tho Montreal Gazette". Tlie doctor first went  into that country in 18S1, hut what  a transformation has taken place  since that timo when ho reached a  point where Calgary is now located  by going up tho Missouri river and.  driving across thc country. Since  1SS3 he has been going by the Canadian Pacific, and tho improvement in  the travelling facilities has been so  marked that the trip today- is little  less than a pleasant holiday. Dr.  McEachran was "accompanied by Mrs.  McEachran and Mrs. C -L . Shorey.  and he stated upon being interviewed  that the outlook was particularly  favorable in Southern. , Alberta, the  ranching country par excellence of  the  Dominion,    o  The Cattle Business  "How many head of cattle are now  in thc North West?--' he was asked *  __-Betweon-_tliose-_hel__Jiy__the_Jarge  ranchers and settlers there are  about 200,000 head in the country.  The number sold to British Columbia rad exported ,to Great Britain  this year rached probably 15,000 head  and ithe prices ranged from $-13 to  $53 per head.''  Cut of this number Dr.McEachr.-.-.  says he presumes about S000 went to  the British markets. This, he says,  is a very important one. yet it is only;  in its infancy. The trade in the Pacific province is largely iu the hands  of Mr. P. Burns, who, from very  ������-*mall beginnings now carries on a  business that probably equals $1,500,-  000 per annum. Mr. Burns has erected in Calgary a large slaughterhouse and refrigerators, his intention  being to kill a large portion of his  winter supply when tho cattle are in  their bsst. condition and keep the  same iu his cold storage warehouse  until required. When Dr. McEachran ami others first be&an ranching  in the Canadian North Wost a great  deal of monoy was lor-t by mismanagement, and lack of experience, but  he adds that tho ranchers are n-v.v  doing quite   well.  "My Special object." he said, 'wns  to look after the health of the stock,  and I was satisfied to find very little  disease at all. There was some  little trouble over a kind of itch,  which was found in a limited portion  of Southern Alberta, but such steps  have been taken to justify the statement and the disease will he got rid  of in the early summer. As for  tuberculosis, It is hardly''known at  the present time, .only an occasional  case being seen in stockers brought in  from  Ontario."  The Chief Inspector then told of his  trip over the Crow's Nest railway,  which he said was a good road, although rs a _ cenlc route the main  line was the better one of   thc two.  Returning to a discussion of the  ranching possibilities, he said that  last winter was an excellent one. and  the caftle were in splendid condition.  The calf crop had also been excellent and the ranchers were now engaged putting up hay and taking care  of their calves. Several of thc  ranchers have made arrangements  with the small farmers to winter the  calves at ?3 per head. On the whole,  the t Canada has ever reason to he proud  of .her great North Wefet.  chorus of approval wliich has greeted  the aclion of the British government  in sending thc legions of the Empire  and  thc  auxiliary forces  of the   colonies to conquer and crush the recalcitrant    Dutch   republics     of    South  Africa wc havo    heard  an occasional  voice both from the old land and our  own speaking in   loud and stern condemnation.      Though the government  have, as Jlr. Balfour says, tho general  "conscience o������    the    Empire'' behind  tlicm, it is nevertheless   a fact   thai  there  have  been in    many    quarters  grave scarchings of heart which have  resulted in an honest belief lhat this  war is unjustifiable, unrighteous    and  an  offence  against the higher teachings    of   our    common    Christianity.  Some way ,it is said, could and sho'.id  have been found by the great statesmen of England to avoid thc barbarous horrors of war between two kn.-  drod people, each professing the samc  religion and each claiming, though in  strangely different ways, to he especially favored    by the    Providence    o;  God; and wo aro asked    to   consider  how ne.ir to an agreement thc disputing parties came, how little difference  there wns finally left   between    them  nnd how ridiculous it would seem,  if  it were not also so inexpressibly snd,  that so much treasure should he wasted, some many precious lives sacriflc-i  ed, so many homes desolated tnorelv  because a  few  thousand  Englishii.ci  would havo to wait two or three yef-s  longer before they  could exercise, in  a .lillie republic somewhere up counlry in Africa tliat wonderful right of  franchise  which  until   sixteen    or    t  any rate thirty-two years    ago    mil  lions and millions of them    in their  own land were never   allowed to exercise ut all.     And no doubt there is  ninth  apparent justification for opinions   that  nre  thus   entertained.      Jf  the war'wore merely due to tho failure to reach an agreement in the negotiations that took place  about the  franchise then    indeed it would he a  crimo   against   humanity.     But   the  question at issue    is really one    that  transcends all   consideration   cf    the  balance of justice in the demands mu-  luallv made or of   tho exact measure  of blame in refusing them.    Whether  the Boers should have    accented    at  first the seven year franchise proposals  and   thc  accompanying commission  to   investigate,   whether   Britain  should  have  accepted  the  five  years  proposals wilh the conditions attached,  or  whether  again  Britain should  have leturned to the seven year pio-  posals when thc Boers asked her to do  so���������all this has,nothing whatever to  do with the cause or with the jusl.c?  of the war.      The    deeper    problems  and larger forces    tliat    lay  beneath  and behind the mere outward negotiations would have sooner    or,   latter  brought on tho crash even though fot  the    moment , a seeming    agreemen*  had been achieved,    When Sir Alfred  Milner and Paul Kruger met in  that  room  in    Bloomfonleln    and    talked  across thc tablo about five year franchises and seven year franchises .and  commissions  to    enquire    they ��������� were,  and in their heart of hearts they e-mli  knew  they  wero,  talking of  unrealities, of   temporary superficial "things  that do appear."     Like the shackled  gazers in riato's cave they wero looking at and talking about the dancing  shadows east by mere puppets on the-  wall  though unlike them    they must  have been well aware ot the fires and  the*real  moving powers  -  though  unseen were the actual cause of that  strange pantomime. For in fact ' it  was not tho rights of the TJitlanders  hut the future destiny of South Africa that lay at issue between them :.i  that conferenco. Sir Alfred t*citlv  represented one proposition, namely,  equal rights for all whitemen everv-  where and a free government under  the British flag, the Boers and the  Free State to take their own time  about joining the confederacy but  being bound eventually to find it ta  tlieir advantage to do so. Mr. Kruge:-  tscitly represented another p.oposition, "namely: "The Dutch population  of the Transvaal and the Orange Free  State will hnve nothing to do with  the outside world. We want to keep  away from you and we want you to  keep away from us, but if wc must  Iu.ve relations with the Cape* then it  must be as the dominant power ourselves and the Britishmust go.*'  Tho"s"e"twb~pr"o"pdslti6ris~~were-utt:eTry-  nntagonistic and irreconcileabie and  there was no middle course. President Kruger and bis associates were  prepared to fight rather than give up  their proposition. Britain was prepared to fight rather than allow it.  Temporary dilly-dallying about rights  cf franchise merely postponed but  could not secure a settlement. Physical force was the only possihlc method of solvm.g the difficulty. Nov.-  physical forco exists in this " world  and is as much the. work of iti  Creator as anything else in it. It is  not necessarily nn evil, on th������ contrary it is deeply immoral to p,Ivp up  nnd renounce what yon believe to be  just and right merely heeani'e the  only method of seetiring It Is by physical force. Tf there Is a possibility  ol appealing to a just tribunal of arbitration to decide thc right then It !-.  wrong to u?e foree. Tint how could  there be arbitration about the real  mntter at issue in South Africa? .  Of course whon we say thnt Britain did right in coins to war it involves a tacit assertion that Knglish  civilization is better than that of the  Bo"rs aiid tbat its extension wotiTd be  better for the country they inhabit.  Fortunately we can mnke the if~ser-  lion with pome confidence without  necessarily implying that the five rage  Individual Boor i<= not twice a*������ eoo'l  a man ns many of those who are loud-  e=t in thoir howling against him and  who shout patriotism anrl sine "The  Soldiers of the.

There Is individual morality  and national mor.'lity '.n ineir individual relations .he r_ e-.-n nre probably on an pvrr,i__ rro10 -.iriuous  than Englishmen. But their national  attitude lowvris ihe wo~-d in iihkh  Providence has placed them is intensely <��������� immoral.

Tt is    not   the  physical forco o������    the    Ilritis i army  that tbey have to contend against so  much as the spirit that is moving   o _  the face of tho world.     You mv. call  it    God or call    it with    Fmist    the  Erdgeist which says:  "In beings, floods, in actions, storms,  I walk and work, above, bene, tb,  Work and weave, in endless   motion,  Birth and death  An infinite ocean;  A seizing and giving  The fire of living;  'Tis thus nt the roaring loom i.f time  I ply  .And weave for God thc g.irmeat thou  seest him by."  They have thus placed themselves  in direct hostility to thc lite lhat is  surging around them. They have refused the simple, fair and jus.- preposition tacitly represented by Milner  with regard to the' two races which  must inevitably continue mo: ���������.-. and  more to elbow each other in South  Africa���������a proposition that woui 1 leave  their local liberty and lo\il l-v'Wldu-  nlity as untouched as !at cf the  French Canadians in Quebec And  Laving refused it there "''as nr.thing  for it, as many a. time before in tho  history of this old earth thu ro has  been nothing for it but to appeal to  the God of battlo and  "Sing woe, sing woe, but Tet the good  prevail."

R. authorities saying the treas-  tirv department at Washington has  decided that shipments us proposed  cannot be allowed becauso of the violation of a section of the law regarding the breaking of tho seals on shipments beforo they reach the boundary'  lino. As it is now. shipments for  Republic come over the C. P.

Travelling Freight Agent McDonnell went, to Republic. Thursday, car-  wing with him a petition to the secretary ot the treasury at Washington  setting forth the hardships that will  fall up on mine owners and shippers  generally if shipments via Grand  Forks are prohibited. It is proposed  to have the Mountain Lion,-Republic,  "and Republic Reduction Company  people, all of whom are going to  build big mills, sign this petition, and  forward it at once.  These three concerns have nearly  2,000,000 pounds of machinery coming  for the'ir mills, and they want the  shortest possible wagon haul on it, so  they are anxious to have it come via  Grand Forks..Two or three car loads  of the Mountain Lion machinery are  already there, and some "of it has*actually "been unloaded and placed on  wagons and started tb Republic-This  may be turned back, and may have to  A be reloaded - on the cars and ' sent  'around to Bossbiirg.

P. R. already has a line surveyed  out to Carson, which is but three  miles from the main line of the road  at the Grand Forks station. , It is a  Wei prairie almost the' whole distance and the cost of running a spur,  out there would be-very small. The  C. P. R. may conclude to build this  spur, especially in view, of the probable construction at an early day of  "a railway'from Republic up to' the  British Columbia boundary line in  order that Republic ores may come to  i ihe Granby smelter here. It is understood that the Republic Mining  company have asked President Hill, of  the Great Northern if he will get out  of the way and permit them to uso  tho right of way down the Curlow and  - Kettle River valleys to Grand Forks.  . It is expected the matter will be decided in a few days.

The physicians named and llie novelist  Dostoje.r_.I~i thereupon constituted themselves intu) a traveling' commission tor  hunting up testimony, while Tolstoi invited victims of official aud private brutality .throughout the empire lo send in  Weil authenticated reports of their sufferings. From these recitals and the ilircet  and circumstantial evidence gathered by  Ibankow nnd his colleagues the icport  finally submitted to the czarina was  mado up. ��������� ������  At tlio outset the paper establishes the  fact that 123,000,000 Russians-out ot  a total o������ 130,000,000 may be lawfully  spanked, licked,,birched, caned or kuout-  ed, as, outside df septuagenarians, only  nobles, oflicials above a* cerlaiu rank,  ministers and honorary citizens are exempted from" that mode of, punishment.  Those enumerated are "privileged" persons, bubiiThy lose that character by decree of the court in-tho same way-as  titles are > revocable." Tolstoi names " a  reputable lawyer of theJSIoscow bar who  was switclied"ih~tlie"jud^>'s:"p"rivate"room"  after his "clothes had beon removed. This  lawyer had bud"the temciity to iefer in  tkClkcpurse tot an argument, to a law  whereby Catherine II decreed that advocates should rank with'merchants of  the first class. ' -' "     y 0   .  Soldiers, prisoners and peasants seldom escape corporal punishment for  more than a month at a time," says the  report, "though numerous ukases ordain  that army men shall not be treated to the  rod except by decree o������ a. court martial.  "The cruel suboflicers and officers,  craving nu outlet for thoir inherent brutality, find ways and moaiii to -circumvent" the - czar's orders. Soldiers whom  tliey dislike or who are too poor to pay  for decent treatment are simply placed  in the "second class," and a second  class soldier may be cudgeled to one's  heart's content. To cause a soldier's  degradation it is but uecessnry for a petty superior to state that the man bus  been impertinent.

Trout Lake City, which,  from all points of view, is undoubtedly  the best townsite in the Trout Lake  district, is therefore, likely next  summer to be a place of much activity  and enterprise, and it. future may be  regnrdpd as particularly bright.���������Ross-  lain^ Miner.  NOTE AND COMMENT  Mr. Kellie, M.P P., being questioned  by a staunch supporter ns to the recent  addition of Mr. R. Atkins to the clerical staff in the government office replied that tho appointment had been  made in his absence and that he knew  nothing about it. It was just such  another infringement upon his rights  as member for the district, which  drove Mr. Kellio out of the Turner  party, filled wilh patriotic indignation.  How is it there are no protests now,  no brass hantl processions, no public  meetings? Has Ii. It. Atkins got the  whip hand over the whole clique? Is  Mr. Kellie so tied up that he cannot  even raise his hand to help his old  friends? Has Atkins got such a lend  pipe cinch that Kellie has to stand by  and see his best supporters alienated  by appointments, which cannot be  justified 'on any pretext and which  can conciliate no one except Atkins  himself. If it is possible to conceive  of Kellie falling any lower in the estimation of the electors of this town and  district than he was fallen before, this  pitiful exhibition of his utter subserviency to Atkins' influence, gained  heaven only knows how, must cause  him to take a still further drop. The  whole business i.s a, nauseating disclosure of tbe utter hypocrisy, self-  seeking -and .humbug which lay  behind the hig lilutf, which was  worked on the electors of this district  at tha provincial elections of last year.'  A. S. Fat-well's curt and discourteous  refusal to lease a block of land to the  city for municipal purposes is quite in  keeping with the general career of this  man in connection .with this town.  He has never given a cent for any  project started for the development "of  llevelstoke and none, of our public  bodies has so far even succeeded in  getting a civil answer out of him. The  Dominion member of this district is  greatly to blame for not insisting on  the government adhering to the terms  of its agreement with the province by  which Farwell was to lose all his  rights unless he accepted the terms of  agreement by Dec. 31,- 1S9S. We are  now nearly at December 31, 1S01), ��������� and  Farwell hiis not yet got his patent,  but we are told that he' is to get it  soon all the same. He is totally unworthy of this consideration0oti the  part of the government authorities.  Times  are   hard.    The  utmost the  average patriot can  expect' is one (1)  job   for   himself.   Suuie even  cannot  get   that; as   many  a    noble-hearted  patriot in Revelstoko knows this day  to   his   cost.     What   then,   they are  asking,   is     the   combination    which  enables one lone patriot to secure  not  only a nice comfortable job for himself  but to bring in his  brothers from the  encls-of-the_ein-th-to_-fil-_the_.desirable  government sits, to hold out hopes to  his uncles and cousins,  to provide for  the old age of his mother-in-law and  to secure a decent competency for the  declining   years  of   his   aunt   in   the  country?    Whence' this unparalleled,  this superlative graft? -  " Upon what meat doth till- our Atkins leed,  'llial he hath grown to great?"  the. peculiar difficulties ofj Mr. Kellie's  position. He cannot withdraw his  support from Mr. Semlin for the simple reason that no one else wants it.  It is too disastrous to any party to  have Mr. Kellie for its representative  in this district.
