L'i  Ue;ml>li(|iie says :  ���������'Tlii'i'u are, over yonder, nearly  three millions belonging to our  racet who speak mir language,  who have preserved our I rail it ions,  and the ciislouis (if old France;  wlio umy yet, lie her mosi. iiupor-  t'ltil. clie'uis in the new world, and  who knows, perhaps some day, in  the event of certain contingencies,  raig-lit become her most valuable  allies."  ������S*ft������*5*l'^*������***i������**>������**S������*#*-*P^ Psfc-^s-tf-^^fcajRft***-^.*^^  The ltliltAl.D is gi-iitilled to he able  to announce Unit work on the wagon  mad to Carnes Creek is lobe started  at last.

Not, much can be  done this full,.but certain work can be  started and go on'all winter and it is  lo be hoped that I lie suggestion of  the hoard of trade to that ciU'ecfe will  be adopted by the authorities. What  lhe cause of the del.iv in starting the  work was, is not very apparent. No  adequate reason has. as far as Lhe  Hkkalii knows, been so far offered  for it. at all. The blame certainty  does noljie at the door of our member,  who has been uiiiemittltug in his  efforts to make the. auihuricies get a  move ou. Nor are we inclined to  Ihink th-lt. ceiiMire should be passed  on the government,a-' u whole for the  dolnv but that it...should be .conllned  to the Department of Lands &, Works,  against which complaints on,the s.-iiue  sioie are rife a 1.1 over Kootenay.

Hugh .lohn Macdonald.'  the eldest son of Sir John A. Macdonald. is plainly destined lo become ti  piotagnnist in Canadian politics. Till  the other day he was Premier of Maui  Iol.ii. and the manner in which he won  back tlie"Keystoiie Piovince"' for the  Conservative party proved that, hu  inherits hi������ famous father's genius for  leading t. forloi-n hope. His opponent.  Wiis 'F.-u-jnei" Gieemvay, who hud-  been Premier since 1SSS. 'ind it was  regarded as absolutely impossible that.  Mr.   Macdonald   should   even   reduce  Kootenay Heade'd the Spokane Prize List  The award of prizes at the Spokane  Industrial Exposition was made tliis  week. British Columbia headed the  list for the state prizes and ��������� captured  11 little more than half of all the  awards made. There was '.IS prizes  given. Of these British Columbia  secured 21), Washington 35, and Idaho,  Oregon and Montana one each..  The mineral exhibit, will be preserved intact, so far as possible, and  will he placed iu the chamber nf com-  meice there. British Columbia received  first prize for state or_ .provincial  collective exhibit. For district exhibit  Ros.*-hu:d took first; Nelson second.  The best individual exhibit was that  of thu 13. A.

Canada will think  to   morrow"���������_'  has given a new lease   of _ life . to-tho ���������  Conservative party in  the   Dominion.  Mr. Macdonald is veiy much  the  son,  of his father; he has  the "same   genial,  charm of manner, and   Ihe   self  same-  capacity of 111.iking personal friends of.  his political foes; he is a good speaker  aud a thorough man of  business;   anil,  his   political   life   has   been   moulded,  throughout, by   the   Imperial    ideals.'  which   enabled   his   father    to   bring  about Confederation.

But  for the pressure brought to bear on him .  by his party he would now be serviDg  in South Africa with  the second  Can-,  ndian contingent.     He   has   just   laid,  down the Premiership of Manitoba to.  take part in Federal politics,  and. _the  Conservative leadership may very soon'  lie within his hands.  The Spokane Exposition.  Says the Spokane  Chronicle   speaking of the recent exposition there :.  "'Mining men journey to Spokane at'  exposition time for  the   express .pur-,  pose of studying the minerals of these  sections.     They   are not disappointed  .when���������they���������!uuU-^fni'���������r"epres~ehl,alive-  exhibits from   eveiy   section.     Capitalists have   been   interested through"  this   great   medium    of   information.'  Prospectors   are   enthused    over   the  wonderful   showing,    for   they   -well  understand   the    possibilities   of   the  ledges which give up such magnificent,  specimens.''  In this year's   exposition   Kootenay.  carried oft over fifty pur   cent  of   tho  prizes   in   th'e   mineral   sections  and  many   awards   that   went   elsewhere'  were for mineral products such as   we  have as yet-made no effort to produce. _  This too in competition   with   mining .  stales   of   such   first   class   rank     as"  Montana.     Idaho   and    Washington."  While fully   appreciating  the  enterprise with which Spokane thus   turnstile mineral resources of Kootenay   to  her   own   credit  us   a  great   mining  centre, the HKUAt.D altogether fails to  see why Kootenay should not reap the  benefit derived   from her exhibits  for  herself. ������������������    Why   can   we   not have n'  Mineral Exposition of our   own?     It"  need not be. un  annual   event   at   the  start.     It   might   not he a very large  affair to begin with.    Neither for. that  matter was  the   Mineral   Annexe   to.  .tiie fruit fair at Spokane.     But   it   is  certain that it   would   from lhe   commencement prove   an   eye-opener   to  outside mining men and an   enormous  advertisement    for     the    unequalled  mineral riches nf   the district. ,   Why  cannot'.he energetic citizens of   Hoss-  land,   which   should   be   the point at'  which such a fair would be held,   take:.  the idea up and murk the fii-st year of.  the twentieth century   with a,  week's  exhibition of what Kootenay   has   to.  shew   the   win-Id   in   the    shape    of  mineral resources.    We do not suppose .  that there i.s Another  district  of  the,  same size   on   the   continent,   which  ' could niake a better shewing, and   wo  feel sure that if Rossland will make   a;,  (������������������tart the r-est of   Kootenay   will   rise  like one man to  help  her  make  the ,  exhibition a tremendous success.

SIFTON'S   RAILWAY   POLICY  We hear a good deal just now o������  the policy of the Liberal government  in securing the" land for the actual  settler, as against the old land subsidy policy���������Mr. Sifton is however  proved to be responsible for the alienation of millions of acres of valuable  lands in Western Canada, -not io  speak   of   the   C.l'.il.   tax   exemption  and Uie Yukon proposal. The tacts  which are given below are easily verified.  When Mr. Sifton was placed in  charge of tlie policy of the government of Western attali-s ho had to  deal with the land grant vote for  the following railways, but not yet  tiarned:  (1) The   Crow's   Nest  railway.  (2) The   Southeastern   railway.  (3) The Hudson's Bay  railway.  (4) The Great North West Central  railway.  Hon. Mr. Martin when he found  himself in a similar position in British Columbia, cancelled all such  grants. Mr. Sifton did not cancel any  of them. He did not even leave them  alone to expire. He took action to  prevent their expiration and to secure thetn for the corporations concerned.  (1) The Crow's Nest land grant  was voted In 18SC by a corrupt government In British Columbia, which  despite an outrageously unfair distribution of seats aud the exertion  of every means open to such a gov-  e-mmeat, -was turned out hy thc people at the first opportunity. The  grant was made in defiance of opinion  among the Liberals ot ths;. province.  Pending the opportunity to defeat the  ���������gore-rnrneat-that   made  whose degraded practices will have to  be restrained by the different committees.  "Hon.  Mr. Sifton has always    uecn  known   as   an   unscrupulous   electioneer, aud  has never rejected a chance  because it was to be attained by dishonorable means;    and his agents are  equally determined to take every possible advantage and  to win. the election hv fair means or foul: so therefore  it is the duty of every one who  has   the  welfare   of  the    country   at  heart to make Mr'.  Sifton's defeat as  complete -and  emphatic   as  possible:  for all should remember that it is not  Sifton���������the man���������that they are working  against,   but  Siftonism:   the  evil  principle, the embodiment of political  corruiVtion-of   jobbery   and     embezzlement;   this  is   what  they   are  opposing,   and  whose defeat will   be  a  deliverance   for  Canada."  Turn the rascals out.  When Libei'iil speakers fall to convince an audience that there have  been no pledges violated, no scandals  unearthed, no disloyal and un-Brilish  sentiments littered during the government's brief and rapid shortening span  uf ollice. Uie audience exercises its undoubted rights and shows strong- and  unmistakable "disapproval. Then Liberal organs come out and say the Conservatives "fixed" tho meeting. The  ruth is that men like Tarte. Blair and  Sifton a"d Borden have done Uie  "fixing." They have "fixed" this gov-  ernent properly and the Liberal orator  is not born who can convince an i"-  teligent western audience of the contrary.

Disallowance was asked for.  ciple on which Sir Wilfrid Laurie:  This was in accordance with the prin-  de'ende/J the action of Lord Aberdeen,  after the Dominion election of 1S9S.  but it was refused; although disallowance has since been userciia-Ki on  British Columbian legislation when  no such  justification  existed.  Even if the mauer had been left  at that, the grant would have been  cancelled along with the other grants  by Mr. Martin, had not K:. Sifton in  the meantime put through a cath  grant of $3.600,000 to secure the building of the road.  And even then all or part of it  might have been saved. Mr. Martin  held thai tbe Jaffrey-Cox company, to  -whom the grant had be-..-: made for  tha construction of a railway, could  co*. hand over part to the ,C. P. It.  which with the cash aid of the Dominion government, built the road,  and get 2f,0,000 acres of coal lands-- in  return for nothing. Mr. Sifton did  all,he could to aid the British Columbia corporation politicians in defeating Mr. Martin, even bringing pressure to bear on the lieutenant, governor.  (2) The Southeastern charter would  have lapsed, and the land grant thus  expired, in 1SS7. had not the time  been extended by the Ottawa parliament in that year.  (3) In 1SSS legislation was passed  at Ottawa, enabling Mackenzie &  Mans, to get the Hudson's Bay raii-  ���������way company's land grant applied to  thc extension of the Dauphin railway  beyond Winnipegosis..

PROTECTION   FOR   THE   FARMER  Brandon Independence: An important manifesto has been issued by Sir  Clin ilea Tupper, as leader of the Conservative party, which- explains that  the policy of protection which they introduced and which Uie Liberals have  continued in spite of their former denunciations of it -when out ot office) is  imperfectly understood, as ii was not  only intended to apply to manufacturers but also to agriculturalists and  no class was specially favored.  no claims that the national policy  was intended to increase the output  from the factories by protecting thein  from the slaughter sales of American  surplus stocks-, and in order tc assist  lhe farmers a system of model farms  .-iini u.n :nii'i>> cd transportation of  produce sv>. inaugurated by the late  gnviriuiii '.'-. "mis I was only languidly  sii;T'"r:."i !iv 'l.o the present one; and  that CL.:is.ii:ii-.r.tly Canada has fluttered  heavily lv r.c' n'aving her produce  forwarded quicker to British markets and in better condition, which  would have been tiie case had the  Conservative project of a fast Atlantic  service been completed by the Liberal  government.  His suggested plan of having distributing centres i������ the big towns of  Britain for the sale of Canadian products is a good one. and was advocated in the columns of Independence  three years ago, and was even then an  old commorical idea. What is wanted  is a perfectly thought out system of  cold storage, with proper cars on the  railways and refrigerators on the  ships, together with suitable distributing -centres in BriUsh markets.  With  thia  new, view    of    protection  (Nelson Miner).  "The    Liberals    under    Sir    Wilfrid  Laurier," says The Greenwood Times,  "have  done  more towards securing  a  recognition   or    Canadian    claims    to  greatness- among   the  nations  of   the  earth    and    towards    increasing    tho  good feeling that existed  between the  Mother    Country  and her    Colonies."  The Times  is  much  too intelligent  to  believe   such       stuff   as   this,   and  it  should bo too    honest to    give exres-  sio������ to it. For several years before Sir  Wilfrid came on    the    carpet    events  were making for Canada's opportunity,  and 'the Queen's Jubilee  was the occasion for     its  demonstration.      The  feeling or sentiment, which has taken  on the name of Imperialism, had been  growing, and then burst    into flower.  Under the enthusiasm of the occasion  it would have burst into flower if the  editor of The Times had been premier  of Canada.     Sir Wilfrid Laurier owes  infinitely more   to the ripening of the  sentiment than   the sentiment owes to  him.   All   that   has   taken   place   was  coming in any event,and it was coming  because the people of the United Kingdom were awakening   to the magnificence   of   that   Greater   Britain  which  thoy  had    been  seeing  more    or  less  darkly in their dreams.    Sir   Wilfrid's  connection with it is considered ontirely  ot the happy circumstance of being in  a front place when the time came. He-  did not create    it or   produce it. any  more than did  the earth    <iuake when  he .was bom.   :���������o   Whenever they sell -t. section they get .justice, these wretches at once begin  a patent, but this gentleman who i-p-jto lord it over their fellow natives,  presents Uie west in the government irobbing thc-n. at will, and frequently  has never done any thins to sec the j committing si ill worse crimes.

Independence, the newspaper at  Brandon whose editor Mr. Sitfon's  agents tried to bribe, sounds a warning note to the people of Canada and  hint3 that the wave of prosperity  which began la 1S35 has already  begun   to  ebb.  "Had our government been n. prudent ooe," it truly says, "they would  have used the good times that we  have had to pay off old indebtedness  and to reduce expenditure. Tho Increased income'of twenty millions  during the past three years hn.s been  spent, it was "the growing time"  they aaid, and the national debt, was  increased from three hundred and  twenty-five and three quarter millions  ro three hundred and forty-six and a  half milllons.which equals a. burden  of $53 per head on every man, woman  and child in thf. Dominion.  "Like thoughtless spendthrifts our  government have wasted an enormous  income and left a legacy oi debt, for  us to stagger under through the hard  timeri that are visibly at hand, and  which will test Canada's stability to  the utmo������t0to overcome."  Whilo it is to -be hoped thai, our  contemporary's prediction of coming  hr.rd times may not. prove true, then:  can be no question as to the justice  of its independent criticism of the  improvident spendthrifts at Ottawa,  who, in spite of their economy  pledges, havo gone on In utter reck-  lf.risnesa and taken no thought of the  morrow.    Turn, the rascals out.  and seven-elchtg.    There would therefore be an annual orofit of $41,250. This  would reduce the gTant or subsidy to  J800.000.     What do these friends of tho  people do?     They give $11,000 a mile,  or S2.000.OO0 more than the old Kovernment was prepared    to do.     But they  say look what we have Rot for you. I  have the  act here.     I will show you  that it Is dlscreditabe to the government  an<l  to  the Btatule  book.   Now  here is what the company gives: First.  it  is  to   build.the  line,    then    comes  what  T  shall call  fraud  No.  1:   That  tho said line of raliway shall, be constructed  through the town of Macleod  and  a    station   shall    be    established  therein unless  and that  "unless" has  left Macleod in the lurch.     Then came  the section--orovldlng that rates shall  be appended by the governor in council.     Why, it was law already.   I have  the clause of the general railway act  here.    (A voice:    "read  it.")      Here it  is.   clause   227.       "Nn   tolls   shall ' be  levied   or  taken   until   such  tolls  have  been approved of by the    governor In  council,  nor until  after    two    weekly  publications in   the Canada Gazette of  such bylaw and of the order ln council  aunearing    thereof."      Fraud    No.   2.  (Cheers).    And now    comes the clause  orovidln-2   that   a   reduction   shall   be  mode on merchandize brouffht into tho  country������������������G 1-3   per      cent  on      fresh  fruits:  30 Der cent on coal  oil;  10 per  cent on  implements and    a number of  other articles.     This sounds well. But  it is on goods   imported    from eastern  Dolnts���������"Fort  William   and  all  points  east  of  Fort William."      It  is on  the  long   haul'  and   carload   lots.      What  good  does that do  to  us?      Does  Mr.  England   or   Mr.   Williamson    Import  their   fresh   fruit    from    Montreal   or  Toronto?   The>- deal in Winnipeg, and  at the very time this act was brought  into force the"local freight rates were  increased  seven,  eight  and  ten cents.  Fraud No. 2.
