Hill deal: "It seems to be Renin ally conceded th.it the Minister of  Rulways will Ining down this session  a nieasuie to piovide for a permanent  l.ulway commission. If he does so, it  will doubtless become law, but what  is of more impoitance is the general  consensus of opinion that such a law  would be very beneficial to the country.  It id evident to any one who takes  (ngniz.ince of what is going on in the  woild, that if Canada is to be kept fiee  from monopolistic control, the relations of the railways to the government must be considerably altered.  At present the policy'of the railways  in Lhe'United States is'dictated by a  few men. lt would be an easy matter  to count them all upon the fingers of  one hand. The power of tlu'Be few  financial magnates is increasing fiom  year to year by leaps and bounds. Not  very long ago. the man who controlled  a million or two dollars was reckoned  as a factor of weight in the business  world; but these men deal with  hundreds of millions. They constitute  an imperium iu imperio. and au* moie  autocratic than nnv Czar, that ever  reigned in Russia. The possibility'  that the enoimous wealth lo he developed in Canada will ever come  under the control nf a coterie of financiers must be avoided, and for this  purpose it is essential that the government control over railways should be  extended far more widely than  it now  8oes: " .  owing to the manipulation of the  Standard Oil Trust, many properties  weie foned to close down in the  United States, with the lesult that,  in some exses, cities, with a population  much larger than our own, and moie  substantial buildings, have become  pi actually ^desolate, ind thousands  of individuals and many independent  cnrpoiations ruined. When these  same people, headed liy Rockefeller,  took hold of the iron industiy. everywhere could be seen the 'ti nil ofthe  serpent,' and the same xelentless  crushing of the.individuul."  Itseenis to the HUB.VLD that the  Colonist could hardly have chosen a  more unfortunate example ol the  supposed usefulness of a railway commission, such as lhe Dominion Government proposes to establish than Lhe  c-iseof the United Slates. Asa matter  of fact the stale of railway affair.* in  that country, which lhe Colonist so  deplores, ha*, grown up under Ihu nose  of the very smiiji: Interstate Railway  Commission, upon which'the Railway  Commission, upon which the Dominion  Government is figuring, i.s confessedly modelled. In fact a very  slight cmisideralioii of lhe <iuesLioii  would, one would think, have suMi-ei!  to shew.lhe OoUmisMliat- im-.* railway'  commission could ever lie vested wilh  sufficient power "to prevent lhe railroads of Canada'passing from urulei  their piesent piopricloiship to monopolistic or anyjjiher private form ot  control. Thejeijwe piivale property  and there is niSsc&jniil cannot he, u-  long as they arej#ivate property, any  restraint exercised to pi event the  present shareholders froni disposing of  their property, if lhey> wish and lo  anybody ihey wish. As Mr. John  Houston in the remarkable interview  pnhlished in the Montreal Star of the  lllh inst., says there would not now  he much difliculty "for the powerful  financial interests which Mr. Hill  represents to secure a iimjorilv of the  common stock of the company." Il  remains for the. Colonist to explain  how a railway commission would he  able to prevent Mr. Hill Inlying a  controlling interest in the C. P. R. or  any other Canadian l oad, if n sufficient  number ot the '-shareholders were  willing (o part with it in his favor. Ii  would of course haye^ahtol'itely no  power to prevent any such transaction  nor could paiTmnient so   far  interfeie  Here is a pict uie of the influence of  the American railway corporations in  Lheir own home drawn by another  hand : "The Southern Pacific owns  California.' The State Legislature is  composed of its ��������� creatures. The  Governor is its henchman. And year  after year the S. P. Co.'.s heelers sit in  the Assembly Halls and pass measures  for the further aggrandisement of the  railroad. The S. P. C. is the largest  employer of labor in the State. Therefore among its employees alone it can  collect a big vote for'the Republican  party. It owns a large number of  workshops, farms, mines, orchards.  Point out a mass of buildings, a wide  stretch of laud waving with grain or  green wilh fruit-trees, a belt of tiniher-  l.-ind. n ginup'of ^inines. and ask "Who  owns Hint?".','The Southern Pacific,  nnd what the road don't own outright  it's got a mortgage on.' The people are  poor, so'poor and struggling.straiuing,  slaving with never a cent to layby.  Every dollar goes to the road. Verily  ihey must gather the straw to make  bricks for this Pharaoh. It is not  difficult to see the pull th'e railway has  in politics. The "Buss" goes goes to  the S. P. C. ti.uin.hands and workmen  and says "Your district will pile up a  big vote for McKinley or we shut down  Ihe works." He. drives about from  farm'to farm and says "If Rrynn is  elected we'll ' foreclose." And those  toilets thinlis of their homes and  families, their miserable pnverly. their  helfjlesMie-sv and tbey go out and cast  lheir vou* foi McKinley and Ihe fall  dinner pail, which means in California,  lhe Soul hern Pacific Railroad. The  foil dinner pail! what irony! This is  not an exaggerated, statement- of  aiT.iits. The condition of helplessness,  ot' povetly. of viliajny aud, corruption  i������~ the vei"y"wiii^T possible.'

It is a  Government of the People, for the  Railroad, by the Railroad.  Interesting Railway Case.  Chailes Wilson K. O. came up fiom  Nelson on Thursday, where he had  appealed lor the plaintiff in the case  of Fawcett vs the O. P. R. Briefly  outlined the case of the plaintiff is as  follows: C P. R. car No. 91 was sent  up tor passenger service bet ween Nelson and Rohson, and au'ued without  nuts on the brake lod. leaving the  btake wheel unsafe, and thiee days  afterwards, while conductoi Fawcett  was superintending the shunting  neeesaaiy to making up the train at  Rohson, he used one of these hand  biakes, the wheel of which came oil',  tin owing him to the giound, thecal  1 mining over him. He sustained in-  iuiies which resulted in his death tbe  following day. Ac the Lime of the  accident Fawcett was earning from  $100 to $123 a month, out of which he  allowed bis aged . parents SOO per  month to live on, and the. amount, of  damages asked is* such n sum .as if  invested would produce for them this  income. "   I  The line adopted by E. P. Davis K.  C. for the defence was that Fawcett  owed his death to , his own disregard  of the rules and contributory tareless-  ness. The company, had apparently  given express instructions that there  was to he no "running shunting" at  Rohson or Slocan, but the rule was  disregarded. It was, also shown that  the conductor was responsible for the  "good order" of lhe'car.  The case was dismissed by Mr.  Justice Irving on the technical ground  that no action lay. >,Mr. Wilson has  advised his clients to appeal.'  of    the  annual  Ladies Aid Society.  The Ladies Aid Society  Methodist church .held their  meeting in the church parlor on Thurs  day afternoon. A full -attendance of  the members were present. The  pastor presided. The treasurer's report  shewed thatduring the year the sum  of $202.25 had been the receipts, while  $181,02 had beeri'expended, leaving it  balance in the treasury uidate of $20.  0.'J. . The, following" offlceis were  reelected. President ,Mrs. M. Pettipiece; Vice. President. Mrs. T. Downs;  Secretary, Mrs. Dent; Treasurer, Mrs..  J. McLean. . '  It was resolved to hold a> musical  social at the parsonage two weeks  from dale, on Feb 231 h. Every effort  .will be made to have a, delightful  **oi*ial evening. A hearty vote of  fc tanks wis tendeied lo the office)s  f >i* their efficient services during tiie  year. Two new ' members were ic-  ceived and after lunch had been  served the meeting adjourned, nil  hoping for another successful year.  with the righTsTof~pf!vute property-^  to clothe a commission with any such  power, Mr. Houston puts his finger  on the only possible means by which  the Dominion Government could  effectually block an attempt to sweep  the Canadian railways into the big  combination, which has lecentiy  secured control of almost the entire  railway system of the SLate, when, he  snys. '* Even if it means the government ownership of railways, Mr. Hill  and his associates should be made to  keep to their .interests on the other  side of thu line. "  Council of Board of i rade.  The council of the Boatd of Tiade  met on Thuisday morning. Piesent  Piesident McCarty, Vne Pies. Jlag-  gen. Messrs. MeCarter. Taylor, Lind-  m.ilk, Sibbald. Goidon and BrewsLer  and Secretin y Shaw.  The financial report presented by  the seciel.uy was tefetied to the  Finance Committee.  The President presented (o the  council the following names of mem-  bcis of the vai ions committees: Mining���������Messrs. Btewster. Sibbald and  H. J. Bourne; Fieight & Trans-  poitation���������Messis. H. J. Bonnie.  Biewstei. Taylor and Lindmaik;  Public Works���������Messrs. Sibbald, Fied.  Robinson. Gordon ; Finance & Punting���������Messrs. Lindi������arkr Molson,  McCnrterand llaggen.  It was decided to hold a special  meeting of the council every fortnight  at 10 o. k. on Thuisdav morning.  The president and Messrs. Lindmark  and Brewster weie appointed a committee to wait on Thos. Taylor M. P.  P., on his return and proceed wilh  him to view the work done on the  waggon road.  C H. Lindmark called the attention  of the council to the fact that owing  to the present hospital closing on  March 1st the town would after tlmt  date he without a hospital. The pro  posed new hospital could not possibly  be ready liefore fall and it would he  absolutely necessary to- provide, some  hospital accomodation fn the meanwhile. Perhaps it would be best to  rent the present hospital.  J. D. Sibbald said that the present  hospital, building.'land and furniture  could be bought for $1100. If the city  bought it, it could be resold again at  at least tbe same figure when the new  hospital was ready anil so the rent  could be saved.  A motion was carried that the  attention of the city council should be  called to' the fact* that tbe present  hospital would close-on March 1st and  to request, them to, take . steps to provide temporary hospital accomodation  pending the building of the proposed  new hospital.  "J. D. Sibbald called the attention of  t.he council to the necessity of getting  tbe mail carried to Smith Creek. Lust  yeai-those'working ou Smith Creek  paid four dollars a week to get their  mail brought over from French Creek.  There were likvly to he quite a number  of men employed on Smith Cr.eek this  coining season and' their mail ought to  befetebed to them.  A resolution was carried to the effect  that Mr. Gallihei* M. P.. be asked to  try and get Lhe Post Oflice Dept. to  deliver the mail at Smith Cieek.  The council then adjourned.  The General Hospital.  A deputation consisting of Bev. C.  A. Piocuniei, chairman, G. E. Giogan,  secietaiy, B. R. Atkins, F. G. Fauquier and Di. McLean, waited on the  Piemiei and Attoiuey-Gener.il as  they passed tinotigh on their way to  the coast yesteiday ind asked the  ministeis it they might c ilculatc m  goveinment .xv.ist.inie in the piojett.  They weie most comteously leceived  and the amplest assutance given them  that the ministeis it-cognized the  necessity foi a hospital at this point  and that such an institution would  icceive the same assistance as similar  ones in other placet in the piovince.  Before leaving Mr. Eberls suggested  a grant in aid of the erection of a  building should be asked for, as well  as Llio annual maintenance grant.  Arrangements have been made for  tha finance committee of the hospital  meeting to interview Thos. Taylor, M.  P.P. at 11 a.m. ou Monday at the  Hotel Revelsloke and members of ihe  committee are requested to be on hand.

To talk about alleviating it by  the appointment of a iailw.xy commission is something like the piesent  of a pair of gold liuimed speclacle.-  would bo to a man stone blind fiom  his birth, very ornamental but absolutely useless. There is nothing on  earth to prevent there being n dial on  right i"'������* by w  acquire a  ronti oiling  There is one way lo   render   Canada  absolutely secure from   the   grasp   of  the   t.ietnendons   power,    which    the  aggregation of wealth in the hands of  the few has   created   in   lhe   republic  across the line.    There is one way and  there is only one way and lhe   wit,   of  man cannot device a second   and   that  is for the people of Canada to- acquire,  maintain and operate the railways  of  Canada themselves, for themselves, by  themselves.    That   this   is  a  colossal  nroject the Herald is not prepared to  djuy, or that it is one without its own  pei uliai* risks and dangers, or thnt   it  is not going to take a  lot of  figuring  out and m.iybe a  period   of   politicial  mishandling   before   the.  government  ownership of  railways  in   Canada  is  placed on a   sound   and   satisfactory  basis.    It is for the advocates   of  lhis  policy to devise ways   and   means   of  "minimizing��������� tbe���������possibility��������� of-such  dangers    and  evils  from   the   start.  But it looks very much as if it were   a  choice between government ownership  and the Standard  Oil   Co.  and   while  the disadvantages, which may attended  government  ownership  in   other  countries or which  conceivably might  attend itiu Canada, are most certainly  preventable, if   the   people   make   up  minds to prevent theii), the conditions,  which attend the   owneiship  of  railways hy the   gigantic, money   power  existing   in    tbe   States   have    been  distinctly proved not to be susceptible  of remedy   by   lhe  people,   who   are  helplessly at the mercy and for all the'  outwiiid shew and parade of president  and governors, senates and congresses,  elections  and    popular    government  absolutely under the rule of a limited  autocracy, con stantly   glowing   moie  limited and exclusive, compared  with  which the sway of  Russian   Czars  or  oriental   monarchs   was   liberty    and  freedom.

DISCOURAGING INDUSTRY AND  DRIVING AWAY  CAPITAL.  It    is unfortunately true that   the  politicians  of  British  Columbia-past  and present-have  done more  to  injure    and    retard    the   industry    of  mining than  they have' to encourage  Not only is the-mining industry  In that province  more  heavily taxed  than in    any of the    newer,   mining  states, or Ontario, but numerous legislative blunders have dealt'bad blows  to the mines.      The result has been  The country itself.

How    long    would    Alberta's    great  cattle   industry prosper It lt had  to  contend with fool legislation such as  afflicts  mining in British  Columbia?  As an old Butte man said to The  Herald recently:  "When a man goes  into   this  howling  wilderness,  sleeps  under a tree and lives on bacon and  beans for 10 years he feels hot when  ho sees tenderfoot politicians swooping down    on him    and taking    tbe  cream of his hard work."  California, today one of the richest  States of the Union, was not opened  up that way. Every ounce of gold  a man dug waa his own and he paid  no miner's license. And every other  successful mining State was developed on the samo principle���������giving the  miner all he could make and getting  revenue out cf thc growth of the  country created by hl3 Industry and  enterprise. The miner does not keep  all he makes. It costs him on an  average more than dollar for dollar  for every ton ot ore produced, and all  this money is 3pcnt in the country,  Helping to build up prosperous communities.  The two per cent royalty Is a tux  on industry, a discourager of enterprise, and should be wiped out. ' If  the B. C. government is bound to  tax mining let them adopt an equitable direct tax' on till ^mining properties and thus stimulate owners to  make their claims producers Instead  of holding them year after year for  purely speculative purposes.  .The period of. ���������official "mourning  need^not be shortened on account of  the "Consefvativo. party,. which, proclamation or no-'proclamation, is- willing to go on mourning so long as the  Grits are In office.���������-Toronto Telegram.

The.capital for which  everv mining camp has anxiously  waited has failed to come in any considerable quantity, and with a few  notable exceptions the mines of the  province are struggling manfully but  vainly under the heavy burdens imposed in various ways upon them.  The Herald does not make these  statements unmindful of their serious  nature nor without havins satisfied  itself of their truth. Thev are simply  the expression of opinions held generally by mining men throughout the  interior, men who know wnat they  are talking about and who have been  forced to their opinions by bitter experience.  The miner, the prospector, or the  capitalist who goes into the mountains and gives his time and hard  work, undergoing hardships uuhenrd  of by the kid-gloved legislator at t.he  coast, aud maybe risking his life, to  discover and develop mines is  entitled        to        a great deal  more than he generally gets.  He is the man who is developing the  dormant resources of the province,  finding employment for men. building  up'towns and cities and furnishing  business for the railroads. Instead  oi getting encouragement aud assist-  . ance he .is .burdened down with taxes  and royalties and he is told, as was"  the writer a few days ago by one of  the kid-cloved gentry at the coast:  "Everv ton of ore you take out ot the  ground makes the country that much  poorer." It is when we run up  against fool sentiments like this that  we realise the inadequacy of the  English language.  The first thing a    man has    to do  before he can locate a mineral claim  is to pav a $5 annual license fee.      If  it is a company the annual fee is $100.  The next thing is a $3 poll tax. Every  tiin������ he  records anything  In  connection  with  his  claim    he  is    mulcted  $2.50.     For all the timber he uses on  his claim he has  to  pay 50    cents a  cord royalty.      Now    all this    would  perhaps   be. reasonable   enough   it   It  stopped  there. But It does not. After  he   has  spent  probably  thousands  or  tens  of  thousand  dollars   in  opening  up his mine,  incidentally  giving employment at good    wages   to a largp  number   of   men   and   starting   m>   a  little town, he    commences    to    ship  ore     verv    probably    over      several  miles of bad trails and worse wagon  roads,  which   means    more    expense,  more men employed and .more money  spent to help the development of the  country.      And   when    he   gets     his  returns   from   the smelter  be  has  to  giv������ up two per cent ot them as an  additional  royalty or    tax over    and  above  all  the  others.      The    British  ' Co'umbia miner is the heaviest taxed  can  in  Canada.      The  miners  build  no towns and create revenue for the  government and then have to pay for  the privilege   of  doing  it      And  yet  the  politicians    wonder    why  capital  prefers to go across the line into the  States,   where   taxes   are   higher   and  the  people  offer  premiums  to  investors.       Evidently   the   politicians   of  British   Columbia  have  yet  to  learn  ���������in wasn they .shackle mining they  .are'snackling the Jife of the country  .and  killing the Jtoezl    that lays  tbe.  .-auriferous egg.  THE GERMAN LANGUAGE   IN PUBLIC  SCHOOLS.  The   Germans   of    Rosthern    have  presented a largely signed petition to  the   'Territorial    government    asking  that an hour   and a half each day be  devoted to the teaching of German in  the public schools in districts where  the people of    that    nationality predominate.      Viewed  from  the  standpoint of the Germans the request is  not an  unnatural  one,  but were the  government to    comply  with    It    it  would lead to endless    complications,  The ��������� Swedes   would   doubtless   think-  that they had as good a right as the  Germans    to    have    their    language',  taught to their children in the schools  while      the      Dutch,      the      French  and in  fact every nationality settled  in  the  country    would    he    flooding  the   government  with    petitions    for  similar    concessions    and    applicants  "for  positions  as   Territorial   teachers  would require to possess lingual qualifications  that would  throw those of  Max Muller into the  shade.

The little fellow, who at times was  bright and interesting, was admitted  to the home several months ago, and  soon won the hearts of all the attendants by his cute ways and lovable  disposition.   .  He was wise beyond his years, in  spite of the fact that a cloud rested  upon his brain, and demonstrated In  a thousand ways that he was suffering  mental  agony  most  of  the  time.  For nearly a week he had been  acting in a manner so peculalr that  the nurses paid more attention to  him than usual, and as he had been  heard to say that he wished he could  ale, no matter by what means, everything with which he could injure  himself was carefully kept out of the  way. , .    .    ���������  Yesterday the child seemed to have  recovered his spirits, and the vigilance of the nurses was relaxed a hit.  This tho little fellow was quick to  note. Ho said nothing, but abided  his chance. It camo in the afternoon, when thc attention"of a nurse  guarding him. was nttractod elsewhere for a minute.  Like a flash the boy darted into  tho adjoining medilcne room, throw  open tho case where the poisons are  kept, seized a big bottle of raw carbolic acid, and In a second had swallowed the contents.    -  Medical aid was prompt, but tho  acid worked too swiftly, and in 10  minutes the child was dead���������killed by  himself because he was tired of being  shut up like a wild beast.  At a coroner's inquest, held soon  after his death, a verdict that death  was self Inflicted was returned, and  the nurses were exonerated- from all  blame.   o  .ttre. .Lsngtry Unpopular.

While    many  great    educationalists are now advocating its use  in colleges.  Mr. A. J. Balfour, member of tne  English parliament, said recently in  a speech which was universally  quoted: "All education which does  not make the person educated at  home in some great imaginative  literature, is an education which must  leave undeveloped some of tho finer  sympathies, some of. the more valuable qualities, which education ought  to develop."  c And Mr. Fearnside. also a high authority in matters concerning school  progress, speaking along the same  lines said:  "The historical novel is practically  the only means by which the English  schoolboy is likely to get any idea of  European history outside Great Britain. This being so, those placed in  authority ought to see that among  the hooks within reach of the boys  are included historical novels, to see  that these are suitable, and to encourage the hoys to read . them at  times when they will fit in with the  work being done in school."  "Richard Yea-and-Xar," by Maurice  Hewlett, is one of the revelations in  history, modernly treated; a work  what shows what a wonderfully fascinating thing history may after all  become.

Only a-  little while,  ago the whole world was'applauding  Christian De Wet.      Hostile ��������� Britain  vied  with  friendly Boer    ln    paying  tribute  to  his  mastership  of the art  of irregular warfare.     His name was  cheered in London, and   it was   said,  by  no   means   extravagantly, , that  if  he  should   visit    the  city  he    would  share   honors   and  public  favor  with'  Bobs   himself,   so   highly   did   brave  men appreciate one    whom ��������� they believed to be a brave man. Today the  same De Wet is bracketed with Nana-  Sahib as a monster of cowardly and  cruel wickedness, whose.manhood the  human race would fain repudiate, and  the most loyal Boer must blush with  shame    as    deeply    as    any  Britain  flushes     with ��������� righteous    wrath    at  mention of his name.  The story of his fall from honor to  infamy   is   brief.

They accordingly went  as a representative committee, under  a flag of truce, to the two camps, to  open,   if  possible,   negotiations.      On  reaching  De  Wet's  camp    they were  seized, and two of them were brutally tortured by flogging and then shot  to   death.      And   the  hideous    crime  was done by De Wet's personal order.  That is the story, and    it is fully  corroborated.   The   best   that   is   left  for De Wet  is  that ho may  get decently killed    in battle- and    thus be  saved      from      heing     ignominiously  hanged as a murderer.
