"I will not deny that money would  do it, but it would take a lot." So said  Sir William Van Home, when asked  the other day in Winnipeg whether  Mr. Hill was going to acquire control  of. the C. P. R. Atany time, that is to  say, when the Standard Oil Company  feel like it, they can gather our "great  national highway" in and we Canadians will have no more say in the  matter th-m so ninny mice. That, it  will take a lot of money is no safeguard.  The tremendous power behind Mr.  Hill will have no difficulty in providing the money at any time when il  suits their interest to add the road to  their present combination. Says the  Toronto Telegram: "When the Rockefeller-Morgan interests, with whicli  James J. Hill is allied, want tho C, P.  R.-Mackenzie-Mann lines they will  plan a deal to secure a majority interest in the bonds and stock. There is  no patriotism in the owners-hip ol  either the C. P. R. or Mackenzie-Mann  systems. Canada has built one  transcontinental line, and is building  another, which will pass into the hands  of the Standard Oil people just as soon  as their interests demand the acquisition of the lines now possessed by the  C. P. R.-Mackenzie-Maun crowd."  ; This is the situation in1 a nutshell  and it'is folly to"close our eyes to it.  WhaL-would il, mean if the lailways  on which weslernCiiiada isdependent  for its very existence fell into the  hands of these people? This is what;  it would mean. The power behind  Mr. Hill is not, merely a great railway  combine, which might think it necessary for its business to- acquire our  Canadian roads in order to head off  .competition in through freight rates.  Itis a railway combine bub it  is also a great smelting combine anil  incidentally a great mining syndic) tc  as well. If they inquire eonl ioi of the  transpoitatiou of the west, the whole  mining aiid '-smelting interests ol  Kootenay -and by consequence the  gieat, ranching and farming industries  of Albeita.will be enliiely at their  disposal to.'make or to mar. Tlie  people of Alberta and Kootenay would  have mi possible control ofthe matter'.  If it suited Mr. Hill ami his associates  to'doso t"hey "might "decide to i'osje.-  these industries- and - lo develop our  resoimes and the- country would  undoubtedly under lhe stimulant ol  the immense capital, wliich Ihey con  linl. advance by leaps and bounds. Ou  the other hand they might, and they  most likely would, come to the conclusion that the most profitable game  tor tlieni to play at all events at the  start, would lie one of "freeze out."  Tliey might' decide that the devclop-  nip.nt of the mining and siueltjng  industries of Kootenay could very well  wait until those present engaged in  them has been eliminated from the  field of profit.. They have the reputation of having pursued this" course,  when it suited them, in districts quite  as promising as our own in the States.  Tliey have ns a matter of fact pursued  it right in Canada, where the Ontario  oil fields, which a few years ago, were  in active operation under individual  owners, maintaining a considerable  population of wage earners, are now  lying idle .ind vinworked, because it  suits the programme of the Standard  Ojl Co.,_which_has_:icquir.ed.large_hold-  iugs in them, that they should do so.  We own in Western Canada :i district second to none on the continent.  The fertile fanning lands of the Saskatchewan valley, the rich cattle  ranges of Southern Alberta, the  immense coal measures of Alberta and  the Rockies, the mineral wealth of the  great Kootenay-Yale metaliferous  belt combine to make up a catalogue  of natural resources unsurpassed in  America. It is a land worth owning,  worth developing, worth fighting for.  Do we want tn continue owning it or  do we want to hand it over to .1. J.  Hill? Do we desire to develope it for  Canada or for the Standard Oil Co. ?  These are the questions with which we  aie face to face right now. Do we  want to see the mines in Kootenay  shut down und the smelters blown  out? Do the people of Alberta want  to see their beef steers down again to  $23 a head and no sale at that and  lheir grain piled up in warehouses  without.a buyer ? That is the way  things were with them before Kootenay opened up and gave them a  market. It is the way things ,are  extremely likely to be again with them  if the Staudard'Oil Co. is allowed to  become the arbiter of our fate.  No, ten thousand times no ! There  can he but one answer. The struggle  of progress may he a slow and hard  one, hut at all events we be free men.  free to woik out our own salvation  in our own way. The obstacles in inn  road, the clogs aiound our feet aie  removable hy energy and patiente.  The. faith in the country, the self  leliance, tho steady push and determination, whicli aie characteristic of  our western Canadians must win out  in the end. if allowed to come to their  perfect fruition. Rut if we stand idly  by and watch the devil fish of main  mom, which has heen allowed to  attain such tc.u iflc proportions in the  states, fasten upon our fair land with  its Mood linking tTiliules, wi'-hoiing  and blasting all individual hope and  energy and confidence by its poisonous  grasp, then we may not even say '" God  help us," because we shall not deserve  to be helped, lt is not that this deadly  monopoly cannot lie headed off, if  taken in time. The slightest intimation on the part of our federal government that they intended "as soon as  such a ptojecc^can be ; matured to  take over themselves, even if not at  first the sole ownership, at nil events a  controlling interest* in the main railways of Canada, especially those, by  which tbe west is principally affected,  would be quite sufficient to quench any  desire on the p-irt of the Standard Oil  people to extend their railway operations lo Canada, however much the  existence of our Canadian lines as competitors across the boundary interfered  with the successful working nut of  their own combination. For interfere  it must and that is the very reason  why the danger' is so great and the  need of prompt action on thc part of  the federal government so urgent. In  fact signs are not lacking that some  kind of a preliminary squeeze, directed  against our Canadian transcontinental  road, is taking pl,u e even now. 'The  danger is iio .imaginary one. - It is  very real and pressing. Neither, is'it  a slight one. For western Canada  everything is at slake. All that makes  existence in this new country, worth  having, even our very existence as a  community itself.  THE BLACK WARRIOR GROUP.  Option on the Great Northern Group.  Early this week a deal was closed  whereby A. B. Clabon of Rossland,  who is representing eastern Ontario  capitalists, obtained nn option for six  months on t.he Great Northern group  of claims located ou the mountain to  the north tif Trout Like. - The price of  the,bond runs into five lignies -and  falls due in six mouths time'  About the Hrst of March it is the  intention of Mr. Clabon to commence,  work wil ha' full force of men on the  mnin chute sinking a sha It in order to  prove the vein at, a depth. Up to the  present there been a great deal of  work done on this group white comprises six claims.���������Topic.    ;    - -  ' "Good Showing on the Cheyenne.'  - Frank Treanor and Oie Peterson  weri-'ilowri from the Cheyenne, up the  south'fork, on TuesMay *,"eve~ningTfoi:  more supplies: Tbey brought down  some fine specimens of galena aud iron  pyrites oie, much resembling that  found ou the Towser mine, which they  took out of t.he open cut they are now-  driving. They are so well pleased  with results that it is altogether likeiy  they will do more than assessment  work, as first intended.���������Eagle.  One of the   Most Promising- Properties  in the Lardeau  ' The Rlack Warrior group i.s situated  on the head of McDonald creek and is  reached hy a good pack trail at, a  distance of about nine miles from Ferguson to Black Warrior cabin. There  are four claims in this group, with a  fine showing of ore on three of them.  There is also abundance of limber on  the fourth for mining purposes. The  ledge lies in a wide belt of slate about  seventy-five feet from one of the strata  of lime whicli run through the country.  A considerable portion of t he ledge has  been stripped and a chute of ore has-  been uncovered of from sixty to  seventy feet in length and two and a  halt to three feet in width, lying along  the contact. The ore consists of galena  and runs 150 ozs. in silver, $8 in gold  ���������indoO per cent. lead. Thos. Horn, the  owner and locator, has started u tunnel to tap the ore chute nt considerable  depth. * It is' now in about 210 feet.  Mr. Horn expects to reach the ore  chute iti about 70 feet more, drifting  ^nd crosscntting. There has heen ore  coining in on the last 15 feet of work  and indications look encouraging.  . Mr.'rTaylor and the School Board.  The' school trustees took Thos.  Taylor M. P.' EVover the public school  bright and early on Monday morning  and shewed him ou the spot their  plans for the necessary enlargement  and" improvement to the buildings,  which have been already described in  the.Herald. Mr. Taylor said ,that  while an entirely new ^building was  no doubt the proper plan.'yet in view  of the enormous drain made by t.he  expenditure ' on education on the  provincial reveune, he was afraid that  it would be useless to ask for iL. but  lie promised to put the requiteuipnts  of the public school here before the  government forcibly enough lo obtain  the proposed".enlargements to the  piesent buildings. - Hu al-sn advised  that the petition for a High School  should be held hack for a week and  every signature possible obtained  on it.' . ''.'.'  Wedding Bells.  The marriage of Miss Ada F. Dunne,  of Windermere, to Mr. E. J. Scovil. S.  M., of Peterboro, took place at 10 o'clock Tuesday morning in St. Peter's  church, Windermere. The ceremony  was performed hy the Rev. Mr. Yates,  of Golden, and lhe bride- was given  away .by Mr. R. A. Kimplon and  attended by Miss Hart of Windermei e,  while the groom was supported by Mr.  IlughG. Gordon, ol Cnutet biirv. The  new bell chimed out, merrily the news  of the happy event, Mr. Yates having  hurried it through for Ihe occasion.  There were present.ibout. fifty inlimaie  friends of the happy couple, who were  invited to partake of whie and cake al  lhe home of Mr, aud Mrs. R. A. Kimplon. In the afternoon the newly  married couple with a number of  friends drove to Peterboro where they  will' reside in future. The Outcrop  joins with all the residents of this district in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Scovil  long life and much happiness.���������Canterbury Outcrop.  Official Administrator.  What is needed is an amendment to  the Act providing for the appointment  of an Official Administrator for each  electoral district in the Coufity of  Kootenay, instead of Comity.  We understand that the matter has  been brought to the attention of the  Attorney-General's Department, and  we hope"that at the ensuing session of  the Provincial House the Government  will do what they can to carry out the  amendment outlined above. The difficulties of carrying out the law efficient-  lyunder the present ciicomstances aie  fully appreciated by the, people -ind  they would welcome action on the, part  of the Government which would  enable the provisions of the *' Official  Administrators Act" to he administered to its proper intent and pmpose.  ���������Golden Era.- '   i :  Public Ownership  of Railways.  The idea of public ownership of railways is gaining ground in Canada at a  remarkable rate and will no. doubt  continue to do so, until it becomes  in esistible.'  The president of the Lumbermen's  Association, in making an address tn  the members on Tuesday, declared for  the principle that the people should  build and coniiol all railroads.  The piesident 'of the Dominion  Grangpin.his address yesteiday, declared fur tlie same principle, saying  that the government should assume  coulnol of - the railways.���������Toronto  Star. ,  GARDEN ELECTED*  By   a   Thumping    Majority    over   his  Opponent R.

ROSSLAND VS. REVELSTOKE^  A Big Tunnel.'  Word on the new tunnel at the loop  on the Crow's Nest road will commence  about the first of March. The length  of the proposed tunnel will be about  SOO feel, and it is expected to bu  completed in six months. It is to'.be  timbered throughout its entire length  with 12 inch square timber for the  present, and if it is found that it is of  sufficient strength,;then it is intended  t.o line it with masonry. The timbers  will have lo carry an average of 30 feet  of rock and gravel irom-the roof to  the surface of the ground above.  Rev. J. G. Shearer, field secretary  I'or Canada of the Lord's Day Alliance,  addressed a meeting last night in the  Oddfellows'Hall on the subject ot Our  Imperilled Canadian; Sabbath. Mr.  Shearer's aim is to preserve Sunday as  a day of rest lor tbe working el.isses,  more than to insist upon a religious  observance of the day and his remarks  along this line were very interesting  and impressive.   -  L*_i������--  Wagon Road and   Steamer.  A special meeting of the-council of  tlie board of trade was held on Monday  morning to . meet Thos. Taylor, M. P.  P. Present Pres. McCarty. J. D.  Sibbald, I. T, Brewster. C, F. Lindmark, T. E. L. Taylor, Geo. S.  MeCarter and Geo. Lafonne and A.W.  Mcintosh. The chief question discussed was the opening up of the Big  Bend.  Mr. MeCarter said that if the  waggon road was completed to  navigable water above the Nine Mile  riffle and an annual subsidy granted to  a steamboat by the government of  $2500 tor the first few years,  he hud a  definite,   promise from perfectly  responsible   partitas    that  a  steamer  would be put on the river.  The following motion was then  carried unanimously: "That Mr. Taylor be requested to urge upon lhe  Provincial government the necessity  of completing beyond the head of lhe  canyon the Big Bend wag'gon road in  order that connection may be made  with a steamer- lo navigate the  Columbia river from the end of the  wagon road to La Porte and that they  also be urged to place in the estimates  of 1001 au appropriation of at least  $2500 (Two thousand, live hundred  dollars) to he granted as a subsidy to  any prison or company that will  undertake to place on the river u  steamer suitable to the requirements  of the river traffic and that such  subsidy! be continued for u period of  three years���������aud lhat in older that  the building of tlie steamer may be  proceeded with iu time to be in service  this summer an assurance he obtained  from the Executive Council by Mr.  Taylor thitsuch subsidy will be put  in the, estimates and that said road  will be continued in lhe early spring  to a point beyond the head of the  canyon. Also that Mr. Taylor be  requested to impress on the Provincial  government the opinion of the'hoard  that such wagon road should be continued to Carnes creek at the earliest  possible date."  Tbe matter of thc appointment of  more official administrators for  Kootenay was then mooted and Mr.  Taylor promised lo urge lhe necessity  for such appointments on the government.  In a subsequent interview with the  Uekald Mr. Taylor expressed every  confidence that he would.he able to get  the wishes of the-council "with regard  to the completion of the road and the  subsidy for a'steamboat'complied with  by the government. Personally he  hiid-.-tlwnys .considered that 'the combined road and river scheme was the  proper one with which to commence  the development of the Big Bend  count rv.  The Home Team Wins by a Score of 6  Goals to I���������Brilliant Play.  The hockey game between the home  learn and that of Revelstoke attracted  a large number of spectators. The  betting was about even, rather, if  anything in favor of the visitors who,  it was known, had a tower of strength  in thoir cover point, W.

When, after a few  minutes play.- Wynn, lhe fastest,  forward 'of  the  home team,' had  his,  ft hand broken by a blow from a  stick, putting him out of tlie. game and  out of play for thi.-, season, the game  was thought to be morally certain for  Revelstoke, but the newcomer, Mc-  Lellan. played up well and the home  loam, after all. pulled through splendidly.

The  crying want of  the Conservatives of Canada at present is a policy  and to be successful it must bear on  the face of it evidences of honest intention   to   ameliorate   existing   evils  and to make provision for the development of the country in accordance  ���������with the progressive spirit of the day.  There is no question that the Liberals   out-manoeuvred     the     Conservatives  and  stole  their  thunder.    It Is  rather  a   bad   commentary    on  Canadian  politics that a party could effect  such   a   steal   and   yet  win   the  approbation    of    a  majority  of    the  electors,   but   *A'e     are     not   dealing  with   that  phase    of the  question  at  presenti  The late elections have shown the  party now in opposition that a negative policy does not appeal to thc  electors even when principles o������  high political morality are embodied  in it. Something very positive is required. It is the forward, even radical, move that carries the day. In  . saying this we do not wish it to he  understood as advocating opportunism. Far from It. New conditions  are always arising that require to  be dealt with by advanced means.  The Herald has always advanced  the idea that a platform could he  properly adopted hy a Conservative  national convention, but before such  a .'janventlon is held a good deal of  organization and educative work  has to be done. Planks in a  possible platform  out, in the press an'd  meetings of local Conservative organizations In order that ihe situation  may be grappled with intelligently  by the convention delegates.  Very little has yet been done in  that line but for some months back  the Toronto World has been advocating the following national platform  which we print in Its entirety :  (1) Rounding off Confederation by  taking in  Newfoundland.  (2) Imperial Federation and Pie-  ferential Trade between the ���������\arious  sections  of  the  Empire.  (3) A Fiscal Policy based on Imperial Federation and Preferential  Trade and on Protection to Canadian  Industries, that is to say: Reciprocity of Trade Preferences between the  various members of the Emaire, a  Reciprocity of  Tariffs as bst-.vocn  us  . and .outside nations .who tax. Cana-  dian products. Export Duties sufficient to compel tne manufacture in  Canada of Canadian logs, woods,  pulp, ores, metals. Customs Duties  or bounties sufficient to build up a  great iron industry  in Canada.  (4) State owned cables between  Britain and Canada, and between  Canada  and  Australia.  (5) Nationalization of the Canadian telegraph and telephone s>s-  tems as a part of the postoffice.  (6) A national fast Atlantic service between the nearest available  Canadian   and   British   ports.  ("J Canadian railways to have  their Atlantic terminus in Canadian  ports.  (S> Maintenance of the independence of thc Canadian national railway (the Intercolonial I and its gradual extension westward. This national railway to be the completemcnt of  the  fast  Atlantic  service.  (C<) A strong and Impartial railway commission to regulate rates,  the relations of railways one with  the other and v/lth municipalities and  individuals.  (10) No railway subsidies without  corresponding control and ownership  of  the   road   subsidized.  (11) Laws to effectually regulate  trusts, corporations, trade combinations and holders of patents, in their  treatment of tiie  public.  (12> The extension of the jirinci-  ple of public ownership and control  of public franchises within provincial  and  municipal jurisdiction.  The above policy is all very v/all  but it is far from being perfect or  even filling all the requirements of the  situation. In some of the planks it  goes too far and in others not far  enough. It it acknowledged on all  hands that the patronage system with  all its attendant evils is the greatest  bane of Canadian political life and yet  we fnxl nothing in the platform to  dopj with the matter. We would respectfully suggest a nliink that would  cpen the civil service to competition,  so that positions would be won by-  merit   and   not   by   political   favor.  Matters affecting the West are conspicuous by their absence in the  World platform. There should be a  strong clause in It to prevent any  government from giving away to speculators or political favorites any  portion of the public domain, whatever. ,il  The imperial preferential plank i.s  oz.c t'zzr. ma'".:    cos^ad   Itself to  every true citizen of the empire and  should be worked for tooth and nail  by Canadians. If a preference were  given to all the' scattered colonies  it would he the strongest bond of  union possible. There is, however,  one drawback to its adoption in Its,  entirety and that is that Great Britain would have to impose a duty  upon foodstuffs which would be a  most unpopular act. Nevertheless it  is worth trying for and in inter-  imperial preferential trade lies the  hope of the future consolidation of the  British empire. There can he no objection to the government ownership  of telegraphs, in deed it has everything to recommend it, hut wo fail  to see why telephones should be  nationalized. They come more undor  the province of municipalities than  of the gocvernnient.  - The idea of extending *he Intercolonial railway westward is at. excellent one. We think more stiess  might be laid upon this plank. It  is the thin edge of government ownership and in the past there appears to have been a certain amount  of hesitancy to bring this government road in to actual competition  with any of those operated by private corporations. The platform,  taken as a whole, is a good one and  with the addition of a plank providing for the permanency of the civil  service and one for conserving the  vast lands of the North West for the  actual settler, it will bear a pretty  strong scrutiny.   o���������������������������-  it is now the innings of the Grits,  they should look to it that they make  a good  score.  It is understood that since Teaching  Europe Kruger has had his eyes  opened.  The Hamilton Spectator says:  "The Afrlganders are after the Portugese."     Oh Lord! 5; -  The Boers appear to have added  the Portugese, to the people they intend to drive into the sea.  The national platform of the To  ronto World ia well worthy of note.  It will be heard of again.  In making his debut as leader of  tlie opposition ln parliament Mr. R.  L. Borden has displayed a courteous  and temperate spirit that will commend him to political friends and  foes alike.  MAGNIFICENT RESULTS  A GALLANT DEED  In Regina they use snow plows to  remove the "beautiful" from the  streets. In Calgary all that we require Is a dust shovel.  The Globe Is suspected of not being  altogether disinterested in its attack upon the C. P. R.  Mr. Borden the present leader of  the Liberal-Conservative party is not  he of emergency ration fame.  If the Conservatives of the Dominion are going to organize for a national convention they had better Eet a  move on.  It is worthy of note that R. L.  Bordon- was not selected by the Grits  as opposition leader. The Free Press  in particular had a choice list of can  di dates for tho Job.  The people of Alberta who desire  to see the Crow's Nest road tapped  by the Northern Pacific might well  sing: ."I to the HILL will lift mine  eyes from whence doeth come mine  aid.  It  is  to  be hoped  that  the stock  men   of   th'e   West    will ' make   the  project of sending a consignment of  horses to Britain for army purposes  stick all right.    ' .  Premier Haultain has returned from , Ottawa and it is now in  order to hear what measure of success has attended his efforts to obtain concessions for the Territories.  It is now a question as to whether  small pox has spread from Maple  Creek to Britain or from Britain to  Maple Creek.  A great, many of the Territorial  papers are committing the crime of  "wanting to know" the intentions of  the Territorial government in respect  to   provincial   establishment.  Mr. Jaffrey appears to think that  because he owns the Globe he is entitled to the earth. As a matter of fact  he has got as goodly a slice of it  as ever, falls to the lot of any poor  mortal.  With his man Friday in the house  and himself in the lobby Hon. "Jim"  Ross should be able to bring the federal authorities to timo in respect to  Territorial   concessions.  The little band of Conservatives in  parliament appear to have forgotten  all factional divergences in an endeavor to present a united front to  their   political  opponents.  Insurance' money amounting in  each case .to $1000 has been paid 'to  the families of 36 Canadian soldiers  who wero killed in South Africa.  This insurance was effected through  the phllanthrophy of a magnanimous  friend of Sir Charles Tupper.  To do Clifford Sifton justice he appears to have always shown a tendency to help out the Territories.  Now is the time for him to give tangible proof of his good will in aiding  provincial autonomy negotiations to  the hest of his ability. *  Fifteen years ago Mr.Borden was a  Grit but it was only a youthful indiscretion and after such a lapse of  time it should not be brought up to  his  detriment now.  The Conservatives are hoping that  Mr.Borden may be the Joshua alluded to by Sir Wilfrid Laurier when he  spoke of Sir Charles Tupper as the  Moies who had led his people within  sisjht   of  the  promised  land.

Which British Columbia Might Achieve  by a Progressive Policy.  Revelstoke  Herald:       It  is a  hard  and thankless task this of continually urging upon the    authorities    the  duty  of  identifying  themsolves   with  the  development of our  mineral resources.      It seems to be a hopeless  matter to get the Dominion government to take the smallest interest in  the  subject and our poor little tm-  vlnical      government,      everlastingly  struggling with Its inevitable annual  deficit, Is compelled to extract all it  can out of our mining    industries hy  taxation   instead   of   developing  and  fostering  them.      We  have  to  fleht  for  every  inch  of progress with the  very people who should he foremost  in leading us on.     The consequence  is that while New Zealand and Australia, the government ot both which  countries have long since adopted a  state,   policy    of    development,    aro  achieveing  the  most  magnificent results,  British Columbia with natural  advantages  not one whit inferior to  theirs,  lage behind ln  the race.  The  instance   of  Kootenay  is   most  star-  ingly to the   point.     Under   a wise,  farseelng and generous policy the development   of   the   mineral   resources  of this  district should have built up  at  least  one  city of thirty. or forty  thousand   people     within   Its   limits.  Under the present regime of governmental neglect    and    repression    wa  have succeeded In building If" up all  right enough but in a foreign country.  Between the    government    and    the  railways Spokane slipped in and took  all the plums.  Ten years    ago the Spokane boom  was  on  its  last legs.      People were  getting out of the city. ���������   Everything  in the place was in the last stage of  depression.     It was the' discovery of  the mineral wealth of Kootenay and  the  building    of railroads connecting  the city with the new district which  raised Spokane from a dying frontier  village Into a prosperous city of thirty  or    forty    thousand    people.        The  people" of Spokane 'seized the opportunity    which    the    Canadian    govern  ments ahd Canadian railways neglected  and    have    very    naturally    and  properly reaped thereout the chief advantage.      Today   exactly the   same  situation exists ln North Kootenay as  existed then m South Kootenay.     A  magnificient  district o*    known    resources in  minerals, timber and- agricultural and pastoral lands lies undeveloped,   only,    even    partially  explored.      Ten years 'of an Intelligent  policy pursed in that   district hy our  Canadian governments and - railways  would see a second Spokane built up  right here  ln Revelstoke.      But    tho  same old suplnness and    indifference  prevails ln official circles, the people  on the spot, who recognize the situation and urge the claims of the district   upon   the   authorities   only  get  well snubbed for their pains and un  fortunately there is no community of  shrewd Americans like Spokane within  reach to do the work for_ them over  again. This is the situation in North  Kootenay right today.     Coupled with  the history of South Kootenay in the  past there is    very little    in    it   for  British Columbia to he proud of. We  own the;most.magnificent natural resources on the continent and we- have  to  wait  and  wait until  some  enterprising Yankee comes    along   "before  we   can   make   a .start  at  developing  them.      As far as the Dominion ami  provincial governments and our Canadian railways are concerned the hip-  tory of the development of Kootenav  has   simply   been   one   of  stupid- indifference and incapacity.     It   would  be  well   even  if  what    has    already  been  done had  merely been    accom-  plished without them.      It    has    too  often happened that lt has been done  actually in spite of them.  An Old Man Saves Two Otheis From  Drowning.���������He Swam Through a  Heavy Surf and Saved His Two Companions From Death.  Poor Ireland stands greatly in  need of bpine saved from its friends.  esperiallv in the United States. The  short sighted policy ot some Irish  political demagogues, who could not  even allow the Queen's death to pass  without "attempting to make- capital  out of it has thoroughly disgusted  the public and even the partisan  press. The Detroit News announces  that it refused to print resolutiocs  passd by some of t.he Irish politi  societiP-s and has the courage to  huke the agitators from whom they  emanated. It pointedly tells them  that ireiand nr Ita friends have no  ionger any cause for such senseless  rancor." ~ Tne���������pecpl.*1���������of���������Ireland:"  says thc News, "enjoy some special  privileges whicb no other peotde on  earth possess. The British parliament,  under the later years of Victoria's  reisrn. has passed laws under which  their rents have heen cut off more  than one half; other laws under  which the fee of the land possc-ssed  by the landlords has been practically  wiped out. Ireland is the only  country on earth in which thc tenant  can force tha landlord to s.-'i] him  his land, and at a price not fixed by  the landlord, but by a court, and the  govprnm-^nt advances rr.oar t.r a-.o  price. They have full control of  Lheir loci 1 county governments, and  tney have ns free and liberal  lii'mentary franchise as" the  of the  United States."  THE   SKIASCOPE  Three men, Joseph Flynn and his  son, and Jamas Cameron, narrowly  escaped drowning on Tuesday off  Bowen island. When rescued through  the efforts ot the elder Flynn, all  three were in an exhausted condition,  says the Vancouver World. They are  ranchers living on Bowen island, and  thy left homo early on Tuesday  morning to come to Vancouver. There  was a heavy wind coming down from  thc Squamish, and they made good  progress in their sailboat until they  were within two miles from land.  Then something went wrong with  their centreboard, and before they  could take a reef In their heavy sail,  the boat capsized. Tha men wero  thrown Into the icy cold water.which  in itself would havo bean enough to  chill to the bone any but very hardy  men. They pulled themselves aboard  the upturned bottom of the boat, and  managed to get a little warmer there,  although ln their drenched clothes,  and ln a wind that pierced them  through and through, their position  was by no means an enviable one.  They were two miles from shore  when they capsized, and there was  nothing to do but-wait until they  drifted ln. There was a heavy anchor  in the boat before ahe capsized, fastened with 400 feet of chain, and  when they went over the anchor went  out to Its full length, but the chain  was still attached to the bottom of  the boat Where the boat overturned the water was very deep, but when  it gradually drifted ln to within 600  yards of the shore the anchor at the  end of the chain began' to catch on  the bottom. By the time the boat was  within BOO yards of dry land the  anchor held tight an the boat ceased  to drift. As she waa held, the waves  washed clean over the boat and the  men were compelled to hang- on for  dear life.' They remained in this position for over an hour, hoping that  some boat would come along and rescue them and that perhaps the anchor  chain would break with the tremendous strain upon lt.  But no such luck favored them, and  they stayed in their perilous position  until Flynn agreed to try to swim  to the shore.'. Flynn is an old man,  nearly-60 years'"of "age! and how he  escaped drowning ln a heavy sea'and  the surf on a rocky shore,is as much  a mystery to himself aa to the other  two men who anxiously watched  him. But he struck out manfully  through the cold water and made  the shore. There were no settlers ln  the vicinity and the poor man. even  after ,he had arrived could obtain no  help.' He hastily found a piece of  board that would answer the purpose  of a paddle, and with this he managed to'.succor his friends, going out  on a "cedar, log. There is a lumber  camp two miles up the shore, but he  was afaraid to take time to go to  this, as the "two men aboard the boat  were very much benumbed and might  fall off before he was able to get  back to them with help. So. without any chance to get warm, he went  out on the log and ' the two men.  more dead than alive, climbed aboard  their new craft. They reached the  shore without further accident, and  went to Grafton brothers' logging  camp, which was the nearest place.  There thev were given a change of  clothing and food, and on Tuesday  "ight when several men of the camp  left for the city, they were getting  along very well, and were apparently  little the worse for their terrible experience.  THE INDIAN RISING  "No," said tha New Tork policeman, virtuously: "there is- no gambling going on in this city!"  "Well! Well!" exclaimed the stranger,  who was tiger hunting.  "I suppose I" have to go to New  Jersey.     Where's tho nearest ferry?"  "Well, old man." sad the copper,  softening somewhat: "Seeing you're  bent on it, I suppose I might as well  keep the money ln tho city. How  big a game are you lookng for?"  J. to SCOTT, B.A..

Pekin, Feb. 6.���������The Chinese' plenipotentiaries have telegraphed to the  court the demands, of the ministers  and are awaiting a reply From remarks made by both Prince Chine  and Li Huns Chang it ih evident they  think the court, will caref uly" consider, the conditions proposed. It has  besen strongly intimated to the Chinese by more than one of the forelen  ministers that China must agree to  the conditions and .accept the unpleasant conseauencea. ' It is pointed  out that the powers are not animated  by vindictive motives, as had thev  been they would havo Insisted unon  the decapitation of both Prince Tuan  and Duke Lan.  Prominent Chinese think the appointment of Chan Po Hsi to proceed  to England to offer China's condolences on the death of Queen Victoria :���������;  a slight offered to the foreigners.-as  Chang Po Hsi practically is unknown  outside of his own nrovlnce. wher������  he ia literary'chancellor. They think  Su, or some other royal prince should  have been sent.  R. T. Lowery, of the New Denver  Ledge, is British' Columbia's great  and only humorist. His last contribution to.comic literature is entitled,  "King James Hill" and explains itself:  "I met a man last summer, from  the cent belt, who told me that he  once refused to give Jim Hill trust  for an- axe." ��������� Since, that time Jim  seems' to have prospered.

Jim's pile and credit have  evidently improved since he got turn-  eel down because he could not dig up  the cold cash for an ordinary axe.  He is reported to have 50,000,000  pieces of the deity that rules the American people, and Is no doubt anxious to rule the earth. Being a  Canadian, he-has a warm spot in his  blood pumper .for his native land,  and'if reports are true he shows it  by. buying a large slice of the Crow's  Nest coal fields.. This valuable asset,  It will be remembered, was originally  almost given away by the generous  I legislature of B. C. Jim -is doing  well and does not fear the sheriff. He  does not tremble when the plumber  comes around with his bill, nnd is  never haunted with the vision of a  protested note. Great is Jim! He  has a master mind, and by and bye  he will probably buy out the C. P. R.  and teach the' Canucks who is"- their  papa. He is the biggest king in tho  railway, and when he has a head-on  collision with nature and,is mingled  in death's discard the world will  murmur with bated breath': "What  shall it profit a man If he gains, the  entire work", and lost the love of his  fellow man by giving them ' small  pay."
