Kollie_  popularity  in   the Lartloiui  hud waned considerably,  even  before  tlio last ('lection, as the polling retni'iis  gave    eloquent   testimony.     But he  could not run for a joh at wh'irking  niules out there now and he knows  it.  Under the regime of his "better ii'inii"  the district bus gone  back  five years  iih for means nf communication, roads,  trails and bridges are  concerned.    It  will take 30 men to put the Trout Lake  wagon road In shape next, spring.    As  Minn as ever  thu   snow   goes  till' the  only kind of transport available over  it. will be by pack train. ���������    The  wagon  mud from  Oinnplix.   up   Fish  Kiver.  nn which Kellie has caused  tluiiisinds  Of   dollars   of     the,   taxpayers'  good  money"   to  lie   spent,   is    absolutely  useless for ti'iiflie and  ore  is  lying at.  Camborne because, it  c'an 'get- no  i'nr-  Iher.      And ' these     roads   are   only  examples of every   government road  null trail in tlie I.arileaii,    This is  tlie  condition of affairs, which  Kellie and  Ins "heller 1111111" have imposed on   the  district, just at the very time,  when  it  seems probable that the  Liiirdeiiti is on  the eve of great development  in   mining matter**.   This is the kind of assistance   which   Kellie   and   his   "belter  num." the millers'   frier.d,   are  rendering to tlie pioneers of the district, just  when I here i* a  prospect  i.f  their at  la-t entering upon I he  leward of sheir  pluck   and   patience   and   hard  work  through all these long years.  It  is  "devoutly  to be wished " that  the gigantic intellect of Kellie. M.P.P..  will be able to see eye to eye with1 the  city."council   in    thu     mailer   of   the.  (J. P. It. appeal.against the assessment-  of.-, their, unvnsile.    They   are   basini;  their chief protest on the grounds that  by.  the    net     which     "governs     the  assessnienl.'ot railway properly no city  incorporated .since 1S05 has a  right lo  assess lands owned  by a railway  company even if merely held  for speculative   purposes.    This    clause   directly  conflicts with the tnu.iicipal act, and it  is teinarkiilile that before  the  consolidation of the statutes  made in JS97 by  Hon. Theodm 1* D.ivii* the sLatute made  no   such   uiiptirallelled discrimination  in   favor of  railway  towiisiu-s.    It is  quite certain that no legislature in this  province has ever knowingly consented  to such unjust legislation   for  the sole,  nenetit if the railway companies, and  one   would  think   that   Mr. Semlin's  government will only have to have its  atteneion called to the mutter to red i y  ,1.   At the same time the railway coin,  panies are certain to lobby against any  change in the statute  as  it stands  at  pies'ent and there  is  always a daugei.  in we in ltevelsloke know to  our cost, for  the  sake  of  argument  the Herald must, it supposes, call Alt*.  Kellie's mind   may _ uddenly develope  an idea that it.will be extremely bene-  tieial to this place not to be allowed to  assess or tax   the  land  owned  by the  C. P. B.   here   for  townsite purposes  more  unlikely  Ihings than  this have  happened while   this place has beei  conflicting for  progress and  develop,  incut with its extraordinary representative at Victoria.

Since  writing   the    above   a   fresh  striking pi oof of this  man Kellie'= insolent disregard of  lhe  wishes   of his  constituents- has   been   tecorded.     A  week ag" last Friday the city   council  passed a unanimous tesolution   recommending to   the government  the   appointment of J. D. Sibbald lo the position of police magistrale.    Now comes  the news, which is quite accurate, that  Thos. Lewis   has  been  offered the appointment".    The Bekald has nothing  to say  against Mr.   Lewis  personally.  Looking at him as a police   magistrate  it does nut consider him nearly as suitable for the position as the gentleman  rt cutniiiendecl by lhe council,   and it is  quite certain  that  nobody  in   Revelstoke ever dreamt of  him iu that connection until the word was received of  his appointment.    However, there.are  enormous possthilit.ies with Kellie.   He  her, ever something fresh and original  to spring upon this unfortunate  town.  With few exceptions his appointments  appear  to   lie   selected   with   lhe .-ole  iihject of showing the people of Revel-  b-tokc  that  he. Hie  great   Kellie,   will  make what appointments  he chooses,  caring no  more for  their  preleri-tices  or feelings iu the matter than the man  in   the  moon.   Seeing   that this city  has lo put up the salary  for the appointment any man   with   an   imprti-  dencu less colossal   than   Kellie   would  feel   himself    bound    to    respect   the  wishes  of   the   city's   representatives  a ltd leave the government to be- guided  solely by them.    But  these  finer consideration;*  do  not appeal  to  Kellie's  view of the Uttieas of things at all.

D.  Hibbald's  building   on  the  other corner. -By their skilful  tactics  and   unremitting   energy   they    prevented  the  flames  spreading, though  both the bank-und the, other building  were intensely hot and at one time it  was nip and  tuck   to prevent tbe-old  Hotel Edwards from blazing up.   The  efforts of the lire   brigade   were  aided  by the stillness  of  the air.  as   not   a  breach of wind was blowing, but they  were hampered on the other  hand  l>y  lack   of pressure.     Four hoses  going  at once were altogether top   much  for  a four inch  main, and   it   was   veiy  obvious that had a wind been   blowing  the brigade could  never  have successfully fought the fire with the pressure  at their disposal.

The --^patch  >rf   thp   contingents   was   tn   ttseu   a  ?rm a������tchlng of the con-tltutlona  no_era   of   the   government,   and     it  -������-__  clearly*  the part  of wisdom  to  ������nnne the  exercise of  unauthon^d  powers within  as  limited    a sphere  __  possible.    It   might    >������ave    been  better had parliament been summoned to discuss the sending of the contingents.    There   can     be   no   doubt  that It was better to leave to parliament   the  settlement  of   the   extent  of  Canada's  responsibility    tor    tho  maintenance of the troops.    Ihe just-  mcatlon  for   government  acting     in  the one instance without sanction of  parliament was  the urgency of    the  case,   but no  such   plea   applies     in  regard  to  the  payment  of tho  men  when on  active service.    The essential  thing was  done,  in  anticipation  of a dependence    on the subsequent  sanction of parliament. - The one essential thing was wisely left undone.  There is  little question  that parliament will authorize the  payment of  tha   entire  expenses    of  the contingents Canada has  given to the empire       We  have  sent our.   sons    to  South  Africa as  a free-will offering.  and they are no less our sons, ami  we ar* no less proud  of  thorn,  after  they reach the field of war than  before they leave  the' ship   that  bears  them to Africa.   The   measure   ot   our  loyalty 'to  the  empire   is  not  determined   by  latitude or longitude,  and  parliament   will,   wo   believe, be   acting in accord with the wishes ot the  ooue*-v it   it   decides  -that  our   responsibility  for  the  cost- of the  contingents   shall- not   cease    upon'  tho  landing ot  the  men.  but  shall  continue nn'til they'return to Canada.  THE RECENT BYE ELECTIONS  As was generally understood Lhe  supporters of llio government were  allowed an election by acclamation  In lhe four Liberal strongholds oi  Verchcres, IjIiUoiici tJoriniei* ami  We_t Ontario. There being only one  scss on of parliament before the government will be compelled to appeal  to the country en its general policy,  it was felt that, it was hardly worth  while to put up u Conservative can*  did'-to.  In Winnipeg, however, ID. D. Mat-  tin, the sworn foo of Mr. Sirton. hat  been elected in spile of the machine.  Mr. Merlin left no doubt as to his  position. Ho refuse's to servo under  tlio minister of tho interior and  will r.ot supporL rue present nclmltt-  i-U'iiUou on av.-j question which be  believes not to be in accord with tltc  principles laid down in the Liberal  platform  or ISOa.  In Slicrbrookc, notwithstanding t'.ie  despetato individual enorts or several members of tho cabinet, and  the brilliant work done by tho machine, Mr. Mctntosli, tho' Uonserva  live, was elected by a. substantia!  majority. In another Quebec constituency an independent Libera:  was elected over a straight supporter  of (he government. And if thesr  things happen in Quebec, how about  the other provinces, where Tarte has  no pull?  WOES OP  A  CENSOR  Is  Up  FOOLISH  FREE STATERS  1  One  of  the  most, hopeful  signs in  connexion   with   tbe     campaign   in  South Africa  Is the constant re-iteration of the statement that the burghers of  the  Orange  Free    State  and  Transvaal,   partners   in   the  plot   for  the   expulsion   of   the   British     from  the  country,   are  constantly "quarreling.     The   announced   disinclination  of  some  of  Mr.   Steyn's   people     for  further  fighting    probably    proceeds  from   constantly   increasing     knowledge of the stupendous folly of thei  course.     A   few   crushing   defeats   o  the Boers may materially change th  position of affairs, by causing man  _ of them to realize the power of th  Britlsh~et_pireri_The���������sooner    such  process of enlightenment begins  th  better.    The  war  will  soon close,  there   i.������   any   truth  in   these   storic  of disaffection   in   the   Boer    camps,  especially  when   a  glimmer    of   thc  real   situation   enters   the   minds   of  Mr. Steyn's constituents.   When they  -begin to blame him for meddling in  -matters which did not concern   the  Orange   Free   Stat*;,   they   are   likely  to endorse the statement of the Boer.  ���������who.   in   talking  to   a  Bechuanaland  settler, said there were three classes  in  the   Transvaal   republic���������the   Uit-  landens, who find all the money;  Mr.  Kruger  and   his officials,  who    draw  ft all:    and   himself and  his  fellow  hurghers,   who   get   no     money,   but  have  to  do  all  the  dirty  work,  and  the fighting.  "When this impression becomes  widespread and general, we may  ���������afely leave Messrs Kruger, Steyn  Dr. Leyds, and their relatives, In thc  hand, of their deluded countrymen.  There is no doubt that If these obstinate and greedy rulers of the  South African Republics had introduced good -governmental administration, the Boers might have maintained their peace and independent's  for' a. go������_ while.  He Is a Mighty Man but He  Against a Hard Game  as   in   the   present    war   between  Briton  and Boer, censor and  correspondent  aro  enemies,  so were    they  foes  in   tho  lato   war   between      the  United' States   and   Spain.   Theoretically the  only  mission  of  tho    man  behind  the  blue-pencil of censorship  is  to prevent tho  press from  giving  aid  and  comfort to thc enemy,    but  practically bo does  other things.  He  protects   ms   particular   army     corps  from criticism  of any  kind.helps out.  tho policy of the central government,  rees that ribuo of his private enemies  enlisted  in the same cause  aro  converted      into   heroes,     rewards     his  friends by shielding them when    they  are in 'error, injects his own offensive  personality into a  matter that should  becoldly olliciiil. and   in   general,   arrogates   to   himself   all   tho   perquisites and virtues  of Allah.    But, although  he  is  a king, he learns    the  proverb about tho uneasy head    and  crown.   Vie comes up against a corps  of active, inventive young men. with  quick-acting  brains,  who  concentrate  ineir everv energy  in one grand  effort  to   impair   his   usefulness   as    a  censor.     In   the   Spanish     war     the  censors  were beaten  horse,  foot, and  dragoons   on   several   occasions,     although for the most   part they    did  have  the  best of   it.   and   in   one  ol  the most notable cases, where    the>  were   outwitted,   fate   intervened     to  rescue   their  cause.     It  happened   at  Santiago  and  New   York.  When  yellow   fever   attacked     Shatter's   army  the censors were directed to prevent  -tbe���������slightest=-intimaiio__o.__.its____i   from   reaching     the     United  States.     _ust  why   it  was   to   be    a  secret nobody   knew,   but  the    order  went out   just     the     same.       Every  newspaper  man  on  the ground    had  the  story,   and   every  man   who   hau  it raved at the order to suppress th-.*  story.    The  men on   the  ground   for  the New York Sun decided to try and  COPPER MINING  Twenty   yr-ars   ago   Chill  furnished  nearly   one-third    of   all   the   copper  mined in the world,   Spain and Portugal one-fifth, and the United Stater-  less  than   onc-sixtb.   says    the   Fort  Steele Prospector.    In 18S3  tho United States led the production,   and by  1892 its  proportion had   been   raised  to   one-half.     Some   copper  is   produced  in Japan,  Germany  and  Australia,   but   the   ores  are   low   grade  and   the output  not large.      Practically all the copper mined    in    tho  I'_ited States comes from three dis-  tricte���������one   in   the  northern     penin-  aula  of  Michigan,   another   in   Montana, and a third in Arizona.      The  Michigan  mines  are   much  the   oldest: and date back In 1845.   For three  dacades  Michigan   monopolized     the  Industry   and  furnished   seven-eigths  to niBa-tenths  of the. whole Ameri-  A Long and Fatiguing March in the  Mud and Rain Surrounded by Boer  Horsemen���������The Enemy Not Cruel���������  A Name Not Very Much Liked in  the Transvaal.

My eertlficaie as a correspondent  bore u. name belter known than llkod  in the Transvaal. Moreover, some of  the private solidcrs had been talking.  "Vou are the son of Lord Randolph  Churchill?" said a -Scottish Boer, abruptly. 1 did no deny the fact. Immediately there was much talking,  and all crowded around me, looking  and pointing, while I heard my name  repeated  on   every side.  "I   am  a  newspaper  correspondent,"  I said "and you ought not to hold me  prisoner."  The Scottish  Uoer lau_hed.  "Oh,"   he  said,   "we   do    nol    catch  lords' sons every day."  Thereat they all chuckled, and began  to explain that 1 should be allowed to  to   play   football   at  Pretoila.  We tramped for six hours across  sluppy Hulas and along tracks deep  and slippery with mud, while the rain  full into a stuacly downpour and soiil:-  ud everyone to the skin. Tho Boor  escort told us several times not In  hurry and to go our own pace, anil  once they allowud us to halt for a few  moments. But we bad neither food  nor water, and it was with a feeling  of utter weariness that 1 saw the tin  roofs of Colenso risu in tho distance.  "We were put into a corrugated iron  shod near thu station, the floors of  which were four inches deep with  torn railway forms and account  books. Here we i'lung ourselves down  exhausted, and what with thu shame,  the disappointment, the excitement of  the morning, the misery of the pre  sent, and physical weakness, it seemed that love of life was gone, and T  thought, almost with envy, of the soldier I had sucn during the light lyimr  ciuito still on the embankment secure  in the calm���������all tho brighter after the  rainstorms, and arrows of outrageous  fortune.

Newlands.inspector of land  titles offices, will arrive, in. the city  tomorrow to take charge", of the land  titles   office   during    the     temporary  late lir^thur Curt^^en7o������_d    absence of the registrar   who leaves  ous plans were suggested, only to be  discarded,    when     the    proper    idea  was  born iu  the  head  of one of the  crowd.    In  me cables they had  b������.-en  giving the editor  for his private  information   the   movements   of   various men  in  the field    for thc paper,  and   the   censor   was   aware   of what  was   being   done   and   sanctioned   it.  and   it   was  regarded   as  the   easiest  tiling  on earth   to   insert a  persoual  message  that would  at once  sug**'*st  yellow   fever.     The   next   cable   sent,  to   the   Sun   carried     the     sentence,  "Jack  Ochre arrived  yesterday."  Tbe  censor  passed   the  sentence  and    the  boys were elated.    "Ochre"  was yellow, and to the men who penned    the  message  it was pregnant with  si_m  ficance   to  the   home  oiuce.       A   tew  hours later a  cable  messenger  dashed   into   the  Sun   in   New  York   with  ine message.    The    cable editor  ran  through the stuff, and when  he c.-irne  to   thr:   stuff   about   John   Ochre     he  yelled   onto to   his    assistant:     "Who  the   devil   is   Ochre?"   "Oh.   he'.-?   one  of   those., new   guys   hired     for    lhe  war,  I  guess,"   was the answer.    Tho  upper   ottice   was     gravely     notineti  that   "Mr.   Ochre   had     reached     thn  scene  of  his   operations  at  Santiago.  "Another   bull   by  the  cahlc    people.  No such man  as Ochre on the paper.  Must mean somebody else. No;   don't  bother  asking  for a eorrection.    It's  all right."    That was    thc only comment.     Three   days    later   the   stnry  broka out. in another way,  and  then  some men who had road the "Ochre"  cable hegan to think.

Loudon, Jan. 27.���������The position of the  British arms in Capo Colony is practically unchanged. Lord Methuen  forwards by mail the first olllcial recognition of Boor valor and milltary  art. He calls their tactics and courage "indisputable." In defending  lhe front attacks Methuen says that  the mobility of ,the Boers is such that  they can change front in 15 minutes,  and that a flanking position when  striking home simply meets at the  front.  The Daily Mail referring- to the  Boer resistance and what may be  necessary to overcome it alludes to a  saying of Napoleon that no position  could resist'300,000 men.  The Times publishes this morning  the following despatch from Frere  Camp, dat'ed .Wednesday morning, and  evidently written before the capture  of Spion Kop was known. After describing the position of tho Boors actively entrenched and bringing fresh  guns forward theicorrespondent says:  ���������'Their front ctxends 10 miles '���������'���������' ���������*���������'"  will have to tryj to break  middle.

Davis:  commissioner .of  crown  lands,  has-by  no  means  exhausted  his  list  of  measures   for   promoting   the   interests   of  Ontario.     The question of reforestiza-  lion   is   receiving   considerable   attention and  in the* course of a few days  ho hopes to put into operation certain I  measures   for    tho    renewal    of    tho |  forest wealth upon  lands  which  have  been  stripped   or partially  denuded  of  timber.      The  areas  selecterl   for   th-  purpose will  be    those which  are  un-i  suitable     for   agriculture,   but     whirh  with  careful   attention   to  certain   well  understood  principles can  be made ������������������to  reoroduce    merchantable   timber.

They kept a sharp lookout, and  when he came along called - him in.  The younsr lady modestly raised her  .skirts and showed the disabled member. ��������� The little man looked at it attentively, and. then.:said:  "That certainly is quite serious."

Tho  ������ian-  ger*0ln  the present situation  is  that  a bloody feud may arise between the  ���������American'-Army: .'-anil   flhe   Filipinos."  This'danger can  be greatly lessened  by-the action of congress, .which    Is  now outlining the policy of the government "for tlio Philippines. It is still  likely that, many insurgents are still  holding out for the very terms which  congress will  be willing to give."  The time is ripe for a conciliatory  policy allowing tne Filipinos to  have some say as to the nature of  the government under which they  will be obliged to live.
