Array THE BRITISH AND AMERICANS  OPPOSE   THE   GERMANS.  ^  'Op.  Force May be Used  in  the  Samoa  Islands  to   Compel  the   Minority to  Obey the Majority.  Apia, Samoa, via Auckland,  New Zealand, March 10.������Owing' to threats by tlie  Mataafa people that they would burn (he  Malietoa village in the island ol Savaii unless the taxes levied upon them and a contingent ot* soldiers for support of Mutaat'a  were  pent,   the   British   consul   visited  Savaii on the British cruiser Porpoise and  threatened to shell the  villages of Alata-  afa's   followers   if  the   peace   were  disturbed.   The British and American consuls  have issued  proclamations denying  tlie   rumors^iu circulation to the effect  that Mataafa has been recognized as king,  and threatening strong action if the provisional government interfered  with the  loyalists.   The German consul refused to  join with  the British and American representatives, and issued a proclamation  upholding   the   provisional   government  and denying that   there had  been   any  interference   by the Malietoa party.   He  added to this document an extraordinary  paragraph, expressing the hope that the  provisional   government   would  be able  to overcome the danger to  t he peace of  the country and the safety of the inhabitants by tlieEnglish aud American  proclamations.   This put more heart into the  rebels, and large numbers of armed warriors are githering.   The United  States  cruiser Philadelphia, admiral Kautz commanding, has arrived here, and  the admiral has had extended consulations with  the    various     consuls.      Chief    justice  Chambers     and     captain     Turdee    of  the     Porpoise,       removed      'Malietoa's  prisoners to a stronghold,  firing a volley  over their heads during the transfer in  order to intimidate them.   The American  admiral has convened a meeting of the  consuls,  the chief justice,  aud  the captains of warships now here, including the  Germans;   The meeting is to be on board  the American flagship,  and it is possible  that the result will be the presentation of  an  ultimatum.    It is generally thought  that fighting is likely to occur. V  ->4  A MOMENTOUS EVENT IS THE.,  LEAD   SMELTER   COMBINE.  It  rp  THURSDAY AFTERNOON, MARCH...1(5,  1891).

The woman received  the news dry-eyed, and asked that her  spiritual adviser be sent for, and that her  brother in New Jersey be asked to come  to her. When the warden had gone she  broke down and cried for a long time.  The Evening World says: "Now that  the last chance is* cone, it will do no harm  to tell what the Evening World has long  known, namely, that she is absolutely untouched with remorse for what she has  done, and she would do it over again if  given a chance. That is her frame of  mind;, nay, more, her only regret is that  she failed to kill her husband. This explains why governor Roosevelt has not  extended her time for preparation. The  governor was advised that it would be  mercy wasted to grant a further respite.  PROHIBITIONISTS IN MONTREAL  -TO   GO   INTO   POLITICS.

Montreal, March 10.���The annual report  of the directorate of the Canadian Pacific  Railway  Company,   which will   be   pre-  ssnted at the annual meeting of the shareholders in this city on April 5th next, has  been made public.   An exceptionally interesting feature of the report is the evidence it contains that the Canadian Pacific has reached the point where the neces-  . sity of very considerable renewing and  addition   to-its rolling  stock can be no  longer deferred.   Since the completion of  the main.line of this road sixteen years  , ago, wheu -enormous government subsidies enabled the company .to-equip itself  witli"  complete   rolling   stock   and .fine  terminal facilities, very littleexpenditures  uuder . these - had   .been incurred   and  capital has been used to'declare dividends  ���regularly.   With little having been done  in     .the     way     of *   gradual      renewal "  of '  its       stock, - - however,       it  -became only a question   of time when a  large outlay would have to be made for  this-purpose.   That that  time has now  come appears from the report which calls  for the expenditure of over $2,000,000 for  rolling stock and'terminal facilities and  $1,000,000 improvement on the permanent  right  of   way.   Gross   earnings for   the  year were $2G,13S,977 ;  working expenses,  $15,003,005,.and the net earnings $10,J75,-  371.   The working expenses tor the year  amounted to 59.32 per cent of the gross  earnings and the nef earnings to '10.58 per  cent, as compared with 57.10 and -J2.S1 per  cent respectively^!. 1897-98.   The earnings  per passenger mile were 1.52 cents and  per ton of freight per mile 0.70 cent0, as  against 1.8S and 0.78 cents respectively in  iS97., .   .... '.

The Americans in the trenches  replied warmly to the fires fl. Y. Beecher  of company A of theMontanas was killed  iii the engagement. A battalion of the  Twentieth vegujarinfantry routed a small  band of Filipinos on the Laguna road,  and some Sharpshooters who were firing  from a house over which a French flag  was flying, were dislodged, A gunboat  entered the lake and silenced a one^gun  battery in the^foothiHs. ��� The strorigly  fortified village of Caitai, northwest of  Pasig, was captured today, after a.desr  perate fight, by the Twentieth regular  infantry.

New York, March 16..���In his little home  in the Greenwood cemetery, where the  only outlook from the windows was over  the long rows of graves, Peter D. Lark  committed suicide this morning. For  many years he lived in the burial ground  and at night patrolled among the gravestones to guard against any possibility of  robbery. That these gruesome surroundings had at last affected his brain and  rendered him temporarily insane, is believed by his family, as in no other way  can they account for his act. The old  man has been employed by the cemetery  officials nearly a score of years as a captain of the private police on duty in the  grounds. .  Would not Interfere.  New  York,    March   10.���Mrs.   Martha  Place   was  today  informed   by warden  Sage that the governor had refused to in-  A French-Canadian Election Speech in New  Brunswick.  A good electioneering story is told by a  late arrival from New Brunswick. While  he was in the province of long unpronounceable names, the place was in the  throes of a political campaign. Kennedy  Burns, of Burns, Adams & Co., a large  lumberiug firm, was then member of the  house of cbmmonsand was a candidate,  for a second term. (ry  . Mr. Burns had built a branch railroad  twenty-five miles long, from the town of  Bat hurst to Caraquet, a thickly populated  French community, and had a law passed  prohibiting the slaughter of moose and  cariboo, except at a certain time of the  year. It was a hardship on the.poor  French, as hunting was their main means  of procuring food.  Some mischievous young fellows cajoled  Ustace Hashley, an iliterate French-Canadian, noted throughout the country for  his loud voice and eccentric way, to run  against Burns for member for Gloucester  county. Hashley went electioneering  around the country and got a large following amongst the French, and when  nomination day came around Hashey arrived iu town with a baud in his train.  Before his nomination he was prevailed  upon to give a speech by his same mischievous advisers. He responded as follows in the peculiar French-Canadian  dialect:  "Shentiemens, I am  the lectare of de  koiitie of Glostaire; sposeyou-lect me, I  do something'for the poor pepe. (Cheers.)  I'll.put de stumpage on  the" moose tail,  ,and pass de bill to shoot'de cariboo all de  year roun on de Caraket shore, by, dam.  (Prolonged      cheers.)

Montreal, March 10.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier's letter to the secretary of the Dominion Alliance refusing to introduce any  prohibitory legislation as a result of the  plebiscite, has caused no end of excitement here among the temperance people.  The' local branch of the Alliance has  taken steps to answer this blast of the  premier.

Trouble in Colorado. ~.  Denver, March 16.^-Riotingat Henso.u,"  near Lake City, broke out late last night,  and the '-sheriff"' of Hinsdale county has  wired the governor for troops. The mes-V  sage came about 1.30 this morning. The"  sheriff had just returned from Henson,  and said that the situation was extremely  critical. The strikers were in control of  the place and threatened to burn every-  thing.in the canip. The red glare in the  sky a few minutes after the sheriff left  the camp indicated that the threat was  being carried out. The message to governor Thomas asked for at least 100 men,  and the governor decided to grant the request at once.

Revolting .and Miserable.  Atlanta, March 10.���A special from Pal-  metta, Georgia, says nine ..negroes,  charged with arson, were shot do.wn by a  mob at -two o'clock -this morning. Later  news says the citizens "are patrolling the  ,main street of the town and^ dispersing  occasional groups of muttering negroes  who are determined to get some sort>;ol  revenge for the slaughter of four of their  race. The scene at -the Johnson warehouse, where the nine negroes-were confined and shot, is revolting and miter-  able. Blood covered the floor and the  walls were indented with'* bullet holes.  The wives and children of the negroes  knelt by the bodies in the dimly* lighted  room, and made the spectacle" more weird  by their moans and screams.  In the City Office, so That Neither Bookkeepers Nor Auditors Will Hereafter be Required.  It is current rumor that the chancellor  of the city's exchequer is so worried over  the report of the experts employed to  'audit the books of the city that he has almost decided to recommend that a machine be bought to keep the books, then  they won't need to be' audited. Such  'machines are operated by electricity and  are in use in the savings banks in Prince  Edward Island.

The Latest From Dawson.  II. D. Hume deceived a letter this morning from his father-in-law, dated Daw$on  City, January 0th. The letter states that  there are over 40,000 people in Dawson,  but that work is scarce and, that a large  number of men are willing to work for  their'.board. The Output of gold duriug  the past year was very much less than  reported, aud as soon as spring opens  there will be a, stampede out of the country. He and his partner located a claim  on DomiuiOu creek, dng a shaft fifty feet  deep, drove a tunnel thirty feet, thawing  out the ground at the rate of about ten  inches per day, but got no gold, and many  more miners had a similar experience. He  strongly advices people to keep away  from the Klondyke.  Hotel to Change Management.  The Klondyke, one of the best-known  of Nelson's many hotels, will probably  change management on the first of next  month. Olaf Lund has rented the hotel  as it stands to John Johnson and L. P.  Nelson, who are now in the hotel business  at Brooklyn. The lease will, it is said,  run for two years, and the rental is to be  $250 a month.. Mr. Johnson was for a  time employed at the Grand hotel and  Mr. Nelson at the Kootenay hotel, and  are, therefore, not strangers in Nelson.  Mr. Lund intends to buy or build a residence and devote his time to mining, in  which he has become interested.  Jacob Dover.is no longer a bachelor. He  was married yesterday afternoon in Montreal.

[Toronto Telegram, March 10th.]  Black ruin that has danced before the  eyes   of Al go ma's   own   James   Conmee  since   Pattullo's   anti-bonus .-��� resolution  reared its noxious sprouts,  melted into  nothingness somewhere about the witching hour of eleven last night;   Wise legislators,  nien  who learned  the science of  government at the spindle-legged tables  of township council rooms,  pronounced  upon this question of bonusing, and their  opinions were   shockingly  at   variance.  They did more than disagree.   To the delight  of James   Conmee,   they   muddled  things in a way that would give less distinguished gentlemen a passport to Mimico,  Ontario.  . There was   first a " resolution,  which, perhaps,  was all   right; then an  amendment and finally an amendment to  the amendment.   This last speaker Evan-  turel in the course of the afternoon, by a  ��� process of judicial alchemy, declared to be  ah  amendment to   the main resolution,  and therefore no amendment at all.   To  the disgust of McKay \ of Oxford, its designer,   he   ruled   if out of order.   The  House   with rare  unanimity admitted a  mixed   up. state  of  affairs.     Ccrscallen  pleaded for resolutions that would permit  struggling members to know  wbat they  were voting for, and Hardy was disposed  to side with him.   They kept up the talk  till   within an hour of midnight,  when  Patullo, with* a pang that fairly  shook  his constitution, yielded to the prayers ot\  the premier and withdrew the resolusion.

Mure) _ lltlhj  There is now in the field a Small army  of ''experts," whose business it is to go  about the country riiaking exatriinations  of 'mining'claim's in all stages of development. Men thus engaged have assumed a  great responsibility and in jpassing judgment on .mines have not Only their own  interest at stake but their opiniori Usually  affects many others. A realizing Sense of  this responsibility sefemS to make some  men over-cautious and others pay little  heed to the result. Of their report, being  satisfied to receive the agreed tee for their  opinion, fortunately the tendency Seems  to be towards the conservative side, for  the most prominent men in business are  generally well-known Conservatives, and  the lesser lights, finding that a bad error  .of judgment is likely to result disastrously in the future, are falling in line and  condemning almost everything they go  to see, and perhaps by so doing make  fewer mistakes. A would-be investor  may have occasion to look back with regret at a lost opportunity, but such regrets are of a somewhat different nature  from those occasioned by large sums lost  on unsuccessful "good things."  A Chance for Carley.  The Economist of this week says it is  time  to organize a new   party,   as the  leaders of the old parties���more especially  the Conservative leaders���are  not to be  trusted.   Evidently the Prohibitionists of  Quebec are of the same way of thinking,  for they have decided to no longer pin  faith to either of the old  parties;  they  will organize a third party, the one plank  of their platform to be prohibition with a  big P.     David Mark Carley of the Economist, here is your chance. You may never  have such another in your lifetime.     Get  in on the ground floor, and be its organizer  in British Columbia.  The Mining and Engineering Journal of  New York says: This momeutouseveut,  of the realization of which we have been  somewhat incredulous, has nevertheless  materialized, as we are informed by the  chief parties in it. The consolidation of  the smelters has been effected by a purchase for cash of the several works mentioned in the subscription contract, the  consideration being about $19,000,000.  Most of the companies have taken preference stock at par with a bonus of common  stock amounting to 70 per cent of the preferred stock.  In  addition to this issue of stock for  cash wherewith to buy the properties, the  new company is also to be provided in the ,  same  manner    with   $7,500,000   of  cash  working capital, and to this is to be added  about  $2,000,000    of  securities  acquired  from  some of the companies purchased,  thus bringing the  working capital up to  a bout $9,500,000.   The property purchased  is said to include also the Mexican mines  of the Kansas City Company, but not the ,,  Mexican    smelters.     Neither     are   the  Guggenheim works at Pueblo, Colorado,,  and Perth Amboy, New Jersey, or'the Bal-  bach Works at Newark, New Jersey, included ;  nor  are any of  the   soft lead  smelters of Eastern Missouri in the combination.   The works included are said to  have earned about $3,000,090  last year,  and with the improved prices for lead and  silver which'it is believed will be realized  this year, the net earnings are expected,  according to some of those in interest, to  amount   to $4,000,000; which  would not  only provide the 7 per cent- on  the pre- .  ferred stock, but would also pay a large  dividend on the common stock. Jt is, however, possible that all these expectations  may not be realized.  We are assured by those in control of  the consolidation that it is clearly understood that there shall be no advance in  smelting charges.   The probability, however, seems to us to be that large quantities of low grade ores which have here-   -  tofore been unmarketable will be utilized -  by reducing the smelting charges or the  freights to the smelters on them and the ������  high grade ores will,  in some-measure,-  have to pay for this. This cannot be complained of, for it will benefit many mines,  while it may make the few high, grade  mines a little less remunerative.  It is claimed with reason that' the combination will place the technical-knowledge and skill of the managers of all. the  works at the command of each," and this  should   effect  substantial  reductions "in  cost and at the same time render it more  _difficult*_for. outside^, .works-to  pompete. -V  "Anotlierrati vantage cfaimecl is that which  was claimedalso in the old clearing house  scheme���which'nevertheless did not pre-..;  vent a very substantial increase in smelt-",  ing , charges���that    -the - ores    can    be ,"'  sent where they will  make the most ad- "  vantageous  mixtures, and also that the -  smelters  will ��� not  have   to   carry   such   .  heavy stocks of ore as they now do.   No  doubt the combination-will be able to get  special low freight rates from  the railroads,'which will not be accorded to independent smelters..     - - . '  In short, the combination will undoubt-   ;  edly render possible a number of important ecpuomies-in freights, in general ex-   ,:  peuses and in technical  practice ;ic will  also in all probability be able to secure an -.  increase     in      the    market     price    of  silver,    which   "may-   amount    in    time  to    three   or    four    cents    an    ounce.-  That it -can   permanently  advance   the  price of lead is much more doubtful.   Allr  of these things should increase the' profits/  which   last year, were   as noted   above,  $3,000,000 on an investment valued at $I9,r  OOOjOOO  cash; and should  thus _make_the   "stock market end of the combination a  success.   How  much the mines, the producers of ores, will benefit by the combination remains to be seen.   The officials  of the new company claim it  will  benefit  them aud make all happy, but "by their  fruits ye shall know  them."

A bouse on the Cariadian Pacific flatv  west of the depot, caught fire about 7:30  o'clock last night and was entirely de- ���  stroyed. The building was owned and  Occupied by an Italian named Bruschi  Farioni, who, besides losing the building  and furniture,, lost $200 in cash, which  was in his trunk, Farioni was visiting a  neighbor when the fire broke out, arid  and was unable to save anything. The  fire brigade responded promptly to the  alarm, but beyond keeping the fire from  spreading, could do nothing.  Waterworks for Ymir.  The people of the town of Ymir want  waterworks, and a company has been,  formed to finance the scheme. The proposed works will cost in the neighborhood  of $5000, and the income is estimated at  $1.75 a month. Ymir is a growing town  and waterworks there should pay well.  J. W. Rossis the chief promoter of the  company.       / -   '.'���'/'���  The Labor is Enjoyable.

Seventh Year, No. 17  The wholesale grocers of Victoria and  Vancouver have formed an association to  foster and promote good fellowship and  more intimate social relations amongst  the m embers; to further the interests and  welfare of the trade on all occasions ; to  inculcate, maintain and adjustgood equitable principles in business and an uniformity in commercial usages ; to acquire,  preserve and disseminate business information amongst the members; to adjust  ���disputes, misunderstandings and difficulties amongst the members ; and generally to do everything deemed advantageous to the trade. Thomas Earle, Mi; P., of  Victoria, is president, and William Braid  of Vancouver is vice-president. The  association has a grievance. The griev-  v. anee is that the Canadian Pacific hauls  goods from Winnipeg to Fernie, a coal  town on the Crow's Nest Pass railway,  for. 81 cents a hundred, and charges $1.21  'a hundred for hauling like goods from  V Vancouver or Victoria to Fernie. The  yy Canadian Pacific  people have  been  in-  V ;: formed of this discrimination and have  "/'..���."promised to remedy it.

DRAFTS I88UKD    COLLECTIONS MARK; KTO.  SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OV INTEREST PAID  INTEBESTING   REMINISCENCES  Of Peter Mitchell, One of the Fathers of  Confederation.  Pericles, on his  deathbed, reproached  . the Athenians with ingratitude ; and the  Hon. Peter Mitchell (if the momentary  association be.allowed) after a long life of  public service, finds tliat the reward of  the patriot is���to be forgotten ! "Sharper  than a servant's, tooth," as Shakespeare  has ib, "is a thankless child," and it is  possible that the supreme bitterness to a  public man is the consciousness that, the  stage can be set and the drama of life'  enacted without him.  A new generation jostles greatness and  knows it not. The harvest is carelessly  gathered while the sower is forgotten.  The name, the personality, diminishes���  recedes from the view, although it made  history; the new generation is superbly  indifferent to ancient claims.  To feel that a hungry generation treads  on the memory of past service, and that  he who was once a commanding force  now lingers superiluous on the stage���  this expresses, perhaps, the utmost poignancy of human experience.  Not that the Hon. Peter would for a  moment acknowledge that he is embittered by the consciousness that the great  work of his life���the making confederation   possible.���has   not   received,  that  . appreciative"regard from his countrymen  that-it deserves. "Sir Peter," as. those*  who know him intimately love to - call  him, is a bit of a-cynic ; but through his  cynicism there runs a healthy sound of  laughter. At seventy-five -he * is 'genial,  lively, apt, while his eharacteri/.-Uions���  -the verisiiuilitude'of which is striking in  the  extreme���never- exclude'  a. certain  large tolerance1'which sympathizes, with  limitation. *   -  Sir Peter is pleased to think that -a cer-  ^tain rememberance of his work,is being  stirred up. in the public "mind.   At tho  , same time the father of confederation has  no illusions.   The public, has a shortmem-  -ory, and one of the most eloquent argu-.  meuts iu the world is a bank account.  '    After all, what is a monumeht���though  -it be of enduring brass���when you are  dead ? He who neglects his own interests  to serve the public may be a, patriot; will  patriotism keep one warm and comfortable in old age ?  Sir Peter is apt, in his cynical way,  which he purposely exaggerates, to strike  a note like this; but he immediately says:  "After all I have the consciousness that I  have Served my country, and the public  are beginningDto���ruecognize whatj.it meant  lK#^l>K.��il.rrS^ l..i|,lt-.ar��/...f'iarllinl^rt Firm   '"��� n       *>'  to'bi-iiigSbprvt.'cdhf'ederation  Sir^Peter conies Oi a wli.oli3SiQ.me Scotch  ancestry.    Hfe "himself was born in the  I    y<|arJS2^ atj^Ne^  Bmuswjfck- He early- discovered a love  for the legal profession, and went as a  law clerk, to Mr. Geprge liferr, then a  pfomihehtJlawyef, in whichu capacity he  served four years. After this he studied  law for five years, aud* was called to the  bar in due coursse as a barrister. Other  interests, however, engaged lm attention,  and he gave attention to the lumbering  and shipbuilding industries. Chiefly politics claimed the regard of the ardent and  independent young man, and although in New Brunswick the people  had only known the Vide of the po_il.ii.ia-  oligarchies, here and there a spirit of iu-  depeudeiSce was springing up, to which  young Air. Mitiiiiell gave daring expression. He was asked to stand for the  county of North Northumberland, while  a vety young hlan. He made his maiden  speech in 1811; he eutei'ed the legislature,  Which then knew no regular parties, and  which was dominated by the family com-  pactsystem. There wasnotmuchchaucefor  distinction ; there was no large questions  at issue ; the country Was undeveloped;  and, in the words of Mr. Mitchell, "we  just drifted along until the question of  confederation came up."  Mr. Mitchell became in due course legislative councillor, and in 1858 he entered  the government of Mr. (afterwards Sir  Leonard) Tilley.  "Who is responsible for the confederation idea ? Who claimed original authorship ������?"  'T don't know that any man ever claimed to be the originator of the idea," the  Hon. Peter will tell you, as he allows his  mind to dwell upon the past. "It had  been iu the air for a great while. In the  lower provinces there had been the  thought that New Brunswick, Prince  Edward Island aud Nova Scotia should  unite in one province. That was a good  idea. . It should have been carried out.  The then governor, the Hon. Hamilton  Gordon, uncle of the present earl of Aberdeen, was in favor of this move. I do not  impute motives, but it would have been  natural had the; governor seen in such a  camion the chance of a great distinction,  as the first governor-general.   Be that os  Dawson City, Yukon District.  it may, he supported the union of the  three provinces, and representatives of  these provinces had agreed to meet at  Charlottetown to discuss the proposal,  and it is curious that just as we were  about to open the conference, sir John  Macdonald, sir George Carrier, the Hon.  Mr. McDougall, the Hon. Mr. Langevin,  and the Hon. Mr. Chapais, landed in the  government steamer, came to our meeting, and made the suggestion that we  should consider first the larger question  of confederation of all the parts of. Canada. This proposal was made in an offhand way, and it is .curious to reflect  what trifling circumstances are instrumental in bringing about large results.  We consented to adjourn our conference  and meet in Quebec.  The Quebec conference was held, and  the larger idea mooted. We did not reach  details ; we dealt with general principles.  The question was how stood public opinion ? Neither sir John Macdonald, for  Ontario ; Cartier, for Quebec; nor Tupper,  for Nova Scotia, dare bring the issue before the public. They were all afraid of  defeat. I then boldly said 1 was not  afraid to go to the people of New Brunswick upon the confederation issue. . The  test was to be made iu my province. It  was made, and although the people, as a  whole, were favorable to the idea, still,  through local circumstances, the question  was defeated. Tbe Tilley government;  retired from power, and Albert J. Smith  became premier. -..-  ���  "Well, that was a slap in the face, or  looked like it. I still remained a member bf the legislature. The governor  and I were great friends. I had often  given him advice, and helped him ail in  my power. He was about to leave for  England to get married, and before he  left he said to me, "Well, Mr. Mitchell, I  suppose it will be a long time before we  see you again among us," meaning that I  would not be a member of the government for a good while. "Oh, I don't know  that," I replied, "I believe confederation  can still be carried." "Are you in earnest?" "I certainly am," I answered,  "and the last has not been heard of the  question." "WeH.'j that alters the complexion of the "question," was the governor's reply.  When-the governor returned he sent  for Mr. Mitchell, and reverted to. the eon-  federation   question.      The    latter   was  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  O.  R.  WILKIE, General Manager  NELSON BRANCH  A general banking unninoss transacted.

"Because I was not so plastic as the other  men in the first place; because, in the  second, I had done something which sir  John, with all his prestige in Ontario,  could not do. I had confederation in the  only province in the Dominion in which a  test had been made. Sir John was jealous  of me. He showed it then ; he showed it  afterwards.

''Suppose 1 give you a chance," said the  governor significantly.  "Well, the man to carry it is Mr.-Tilley.  I will work under him and do all in my  power, but he must lead."  "Do you wish for the opportunity ?"  asked the governor.  "Certainly."  "See Mr. Tilley, make your arrangements, let mekuow, and I will find a  way."   n  t Mr. Tilley had been defeated upon the  question by a majority of three to one.  He said to Mr. Mitchell: "You can try it  again if you like; yotvdonVcare what the  people think of you."  "Not two straws."  "Very well; go ahead ; I will support  you; but I could not lead or the people  would say I was a fool."  In the end, Mr. Mitchell undertook to  lead the campaign. The governor was  communicated with; an occasion of disagreement with the ministry was found  ���"Yoii know these things are simple  when you understand," Said Mr. Mitdhell  =significautlyT^M.!^  to form a ministry, which he did, and the  new administration went to the jj.eople  with the cry of confederation ibr the  whole of Canada.  Mr* Mitchell was premier, of course;  Tilley was made secretary; Fisher, attorney-general; Johnston, solicitpl'-general;  IX. I). Wilmont, minister" without portfolio. Mr- Mitchell held five of the seats  in the cabinet vacant, putting a proper  regard Upon the temptations of office to  influence the doubting.  When Mr. Mitchell was a young man,  he was full oi' courage and daring; he  made speeches all clay and ftll night; he  aroused the country; and he was returned by an overwhelming majority���a  ���majority of four to one-*-completely reversing, in four mphths, the popular decision.  "The sole issue was confederation. Mr.  Tilley gave me the warmest support, but  it was my own personality. It was not  politics, it was a.person. I thus made  confederation possible, for, as I tell you,  .not'.one of the men concerned dared-go  before the pther provinces with the question. New Brunswick came up to the  test, and the vote made confederation a  reality."  The Quebec conference met a second  time, when the plan was elaborated, and  the new Federal cabinet formed.  Curiously enough, Mr. Mitchell's name  was left out���or, rather before Mr. Mitchell was thought of, sir John Macdonald  had given all the cabinet seats away., ^  "lam sorry, Mr. Mitchell," he said, "but  I had to promise the fellows all the positions ; but I have created two new positions���the ministry of marine and fisheries  and the secretary of state for the provinces.   I offer you the latter."  "I would rather have marine and fisheries," Mr. Mitchell said.  "But I tell you there is nothing to do in  it;    take  the  secretaryship,"   sir   John  urged. ���_"'_.''  "No, I prefer the other."  "Do you insist upon it.?"  "I do."  "Very well, you shall have it."

The merchants of the city are of the  opinion that when the city council takes  up the question of imposing a liquor  license upon the Nelson Club, it should  also impose a retail traders' license. Not  only does the club do a retail liquor business, but it also does a retail tobacconist's  business.  The contract for the erection of a residence for A. H.
