It's the only way  1  to be certain of securing- any special  priced  *  goods when quantities   are  limited, and the  money thus saved is certainly a healing recompense for the small effort you may make to  reach here by eight o'clock.

Speaking ut  Now Westminster on  Thursday last Chas. Wilson, Q.U., who  was leceived with  loud applause said  ,er of tho Liberal  to state emphatically that they had no alliances.  They  it connected in  any  way   wilh  ailed Turner or Cotton parties,  but   ran   flatly   on     their    platform.  "And."  said   Mr.   Wilson,     "Mossr.-t.  CoUon   aud  Mint in run   settle  their  domestic troubles between themselves.'  He recognized only two great   parties,  who frankly   look   thc responsibility  for their lepresentaiive's actions iu the  legislature,     tho     Liberals    and   the  Liberal-Conservatives. Were      lie  returned with his associates, his party  would see that he keptlo the published  platform. There was absolutely no  remedy against any individual government, such as Mr. Martin's, should the  members not cave to keep their promises. A man in that position could  promise anything, and juggle wilh  millions for railways to the moon and  other outlying places without the  slightest idea of how the money was  to he paid, and once in power he would  forget all alinut it.

Mr. Craig's Position.  To the Editor ot the Heraid. ]  .   Sin:"' Jtrthe'last issue of yourpaper  there appeared a letter signed  Samuel  Needham." in which,the writer asserts  that neither Mr. Craig nor any other  man had the right to ask  Mr. ^Martin  questions in the name of the Trades &  Labor Council of this place. "   If Mr.  Needham would ask for the minutes of  the special meeting cf A'pril  13th (as  he is a delegate to the Trades & Labor  Council) be-.will -find   out   that   Mr.  Craig had authority to do'so.    And it  the regular meeting on the 22nd  inst.  he sat not ten feet from the secretary  while tlie minutes of the meeting of  the 13th inst. weie read  and adopted.  Mr. Needham"could have had access to  those minutes at any time  if he had  any desire to ascertain  if   there   was  authority for the statement that those  questions were asked in   tlie  name  of  the Trades and Labor Council  or not.  and the fact that he   did   not  do   so  brands him as a wilful and deliberate  liar.

On     Monday   afternoon   the   Hon.  Joseph Martin addressed a large meeting of Ymir  clectois  and  delivered  a  speech     upon   his   political   platform  which lasted over two hours and  was  listened to with great attention.    The  meeting was held in the Miners' Union  Hall   and   was   attended   by   a  large  number of members of the Union, who  received somewhat of a setback bv tbe  evident antagonism existing between  Mr.  Martin   i\nd   Mr.   Houston. ��������� Mr.  Martin's announcement that he would"  rather see an out and ont Conservative  such    as     Mr.     Roderick   Robertson  elected to tlie constituency than a man  of no political principle, such as John  Houston, caused  no little consternation in the ranks of unionism.

The press are unanimous  in declaring  this to be the literal y and musical treat  of the season.     Wherever they have  appealed tbey have been asked for a  return engagement.      "The Burial  of  General Wauchope"   as   rendered   by  Miss Webb is alone worth the price of  admission.   The Rossland Miner says  "That Mr. Hodsdon's peer as  a  tenor,  has never   been   heard   in   Rossland"  and   the   Calgary   papers   say    "Mr.  Hodsdon is the finest tenor th.it  has  vicitedthese-regiKUs  Remember the d.Ue, Friday, May 4.

A cool million nnd a  half is lhe nel price wliich Mr. Connors of Uuflalo has made by selling :i  franchise obtained a few months ugo  from Mr. Tarte. Two years ago Mr.  Tarie was using his position lo forcu  a poilcy of his own and his Montreal  friends upon the Montreal harbor  board, and he then declared that ho  would never allow private enlerpriso  (o obtain control of the grain elevator  business in the city of Montreul. The  minister headed off all local men why  desired to handle grain. Jn parliament he laid down a policy excluding  private control. Jjul one day he astonished the transportation Interest*  by announcing a sudden change of attitude. A gentleman of Buiialo, named  Connors, who had great wealth anil a  rare gift for dealing with public men,  appeared on the scene. He took in  iiij smaller partners, an eminent member of the Ontario government, and  oilier men of influence. Then he went  to Mr. Tarie, and tho ministers calmly handed over lo him all liie exclusive privileges he wanted in Montreal,  and gave him concessions for the construction of an elevator ai tho terminus  of the  Welland  canal.  Hence forward It was plain sailing  for Mr. Connors. He prepared his  prcspct-tus and showed thai tlie eleva-  *ei'3 wilh their franchises would pay  large dividends on four millions. Out  of lhe capital of the proposed company ill*. Connors is to get no less  than $1,500,000 for tho concessions  and franchises, which he obtained  il.rough Mr. Tarlo without paying a  c-.nl, unless he has secretly divided  the profUs.

The    movement is  reported  as'  an  assured   fact,  and  as  soon as   the  delegates  return  and  make  their  reports tho colonists will leave for their  far North Western homes.    In Toledo  and   vicinity,   132   heads     of    families  have signified  their intention of going  making    in all about   600 people,  who  will   emigrate    from     north    western  Ohio.

There are reported lo be several thousand* of them, with seven Krupp guns  of tho latest pattern. Lord I-Citehen-  or came down lo t&ke charge last  night.  '���������The inoiie* I see of other countries  and peoples, the more I like Canada.  There is no comparison. It makes  mc nroud to bo a Canadian to hear  M10 reputation the Canadians have  ai-ned.

The cavalry have already had   a long  march  over  heavy  and ' sandy - roads,    and    nothing.   is>  known regarding the condition of-the  horses.- In any case it is now a race  between* tho Federals and the forces of  General French and General-Hamilton.  The   slowness-   of   the   i*ecent    movements of the   British ln    the country  and   the   previous   experience   ot " the  Boers to move  rapidly with guns and  baggage over their own country, lead  to  a belief that Lord Roberts'  enveloping- operations   will  have to  be  repeated  further   north.      At  the   most  he   may   perhaps   capture   some   Boer  guns and baggage  and hurry tho retreating burghers.      Considerable    results have been attained in the .relief  of Wepener, and.    in the    clearing of  the south eastern interior, of the.

Bear fighting bus become the new national   sport  of   Italy,   according   to   a  correspondent of the I'Uiladolphia Times.  The origin was accidental. ��������� ��������� Su'uic. time  ago the young Priuce of Molfetta bought  a baby bear from a Karpnthiuu Imnier.  If he had been a peasant iusleiul of a  prince,   it   is   probable   lie   would   have  trained his savage  pet to dance to the  music of a hordy. g'urdy.    In that case  it is pot improbable Unit llie bmr aiiii his  muster would be in the streets of Philadelphia'lit this very moment, tempting  pennies from'.euuiH boys iu knickerbockers aud little girls in piutifores.   But, being a prince, and a prince of muscular  attributes, with n princely ambition tor  their display under more congenial conditions, Molfetta taught his young bear  to  light mimic battle* with  his young  master.  The bear was trained to stand on hii  hind legs nnd flight according to the btrict  rules of the prize ring. It was a serious  business, the education of this young  bear���������serious for the bear anil serious for  the athlete. Many were the scratches  bis bcarahip *. inflicted upon the princeling before the former learned to recognize the-noble rules formulated'* by a  Marquis of Queensberry. In time, however, the bear and the man were realty  ... tor public exhibitions ot their prowess,  but even now it fe necessary to place a  man with a lasso-in one corner of tbe  arena to draw ��������� off the* educated be<ir if  in oiio of his, momentary lapses Into  the savage state there is danger that ho  will substitute a/blow or the death dealing claw of the man killer for the muscular hug of the wrestler.  While boar fighting, as it Is now practiced in modern Italy, is not a mere exhibition ot the one sided cruelty of bear  baiting}, that delighted Englishmen in the  gloriotvs days of the great Queen Bess, it  is lacking in the thrilling interest of tlio  gUdinttorinl contests with wild beasts that  were so highly appreciated in ancient  Home. In the Italian bear fight the interest centers in tlie momentary danger  to the man.

Speaking at Fet-nie last week Mr.  Martin classed the Kootenay Mail of  Revelstoke, as "an ont and' out sup  porter of his government."  THE CITY' AND  THE  COMPANY.  Our City Council in  commencing its  tentative negotiations for the acquisition by the municipality of Ihe plant  and property of the Revelstoke Water,  Power and Light Co. is entering upon  'a project of first rate importance to  Revelstoke and everybody in it.     It is  quite, needless to remark Lhat a progressive   paper   like   the   Herald is  quite   in   favor  of    the   principle  of  municipal   ownership   of such   public  facilities as the waterworks and electric     light     systrm.   The   in variable  result   of   such  ownership   in    other  places,  except  in   cases   of gross incompetency and   mismanagement on  the part of  the  civic  authorities,   lias  been an increased and improved public  service accompanied by a reduction of  tlie rates.     Such a desirable result can  just   as easily   be   attained   here   io  Revelstoke as elsewhere and  there is  no reason at all  why the city should  not gain it.   It appears to the Herald  to be   mainly   a   question   of   teims.  And   tliis   is   one    which   should    be  approached in a spirit of mutual  fairness and  without  resort to pressure.  The company is one wliich has deserved  well     of   Revelstoke.      Without    its  enterprise the very great extension of  the town which  the last three years  has   witnessed would  have been  iin-  . possible or very nearly so.    This is a  point   which   the  company   is justly  unt.iUod tn  li������vi>  taken  inlo  consideration when   the  city  comes  lo   make  tlie actual bargain with them.     Since  thellEHAM)   has  no   doubt  that  the  Council will   be   authorized   to  make  them   some  offer  whenever   they  are  ready to apply to  the  ratepayers   for  authority to do so.     The company is a  paying     concern.       Its    profits    are  credibly stated  to  be at  the   rate  of  SI.000 a  month  and   the   Hkiiai.d   is  glad   to   see   their enterprise  so  well  rewarded.      At   the   same   time   tliis  town   could   use    those   profits   very  much more to the  general  advantage,  if  they were  being   applied to   lower  rates and increase the efficiency of tlie  service.    And it is of  tlie opinion that  the   general   spirit  of    progress   and  intelligence  prevailing   in   tliis   place  will be all on the side of the acquisition  of  the   company's   plant    and   water  rights, provided alreasonable   bargain  can be made for them.

A deputation from the Sonc of England waited on the Mayor on Saturday  to request him to call a puhlic meeting  without delay to start the hall rolling  for a worthy celebration of the Queen's  birthday this year. His Worship  assented to the request and has fixed  Aim-lay evening at 8 o'clock in the  opera House as the lime and place for  the meeting. Mr. Tapping has kindly  placed the opera house at the Mayor's  disposal for this purpose free. All  ���������member? of the Caledonian Society.  Sons of England.

The position taken hy Mr. Wilson,  the leader of the Liberal-Conservative  party in the province, is^, straightforward and consistent. He is not  hunting for any hole into which to  dodge with a hope of evading the  issues before the electorate. He has  taken his stand on the New Westminster platform and means to abide  by it be the issue what it may. The  high sounding futilities of the "good  government" party fail to draw him  from the path marked out hy practical  common sense. He intends fo adhere I o  the party lines plank of Ihe platform no  matter who dissents from it. Addressing the Liberal-Conservative convention, which had just tendered him an  unanimous nomination to run as the  fir.-t choice of its candidates in  Vancouver, Air. Wilson said that he  wished it understood from the start  that no compromi-ie had heen mad e  with what were said to be older parties  in the province. The parly of which  he was the le.idiirhad made no alliances  with other political parties, and would  go into the light uiitraionieled by such  bonds of alliance."  This firm attitude on the part of Mr  Wilson inspires confidence in him as a  leader, and is nt the same time, the  Herald feels assured, the most  politic one which he could adopt.  The electors know where he is at and  in llie long run the independent  Conservatives will find themselves by  the force of ciiciim������tances. langed  under his command. The old parties  are dead. The "good government  party," except as exemplified by the  little forlorn hope Mesirs. Clifford and  Irving are undertaking in far off  Cnssiar, never was alive. And independents as it general rule, as far as  the Hw.Ar.D'S observation goes, area  great deal more in evidence before an  election than during a session. They  may construct plalformsi, make  speeche. and write editorials till they  are blue in the face, but when Ihey  get to Victoria next session it will be  either Charles Wilson or Joseph  Martin, ��������� whom they will -have to  follow. These two men represent the  voices and opinions of the two great  divisions in the mass of the independent electorate, whose voices and  opinions as opposed to those of all  cliques and riei-sonal factions whatsoever are hencefoith to he the  controlling factors in the government  of this fair province -*' tj..___..i.
