 ANOTHER TRANS - CO  Railway to be Built Across Canada.  Niflw York, August 15.���A special to  the Tribune from Montreal says: The  amounts voted at the session of parliament -which has just closed in aid of railway projects aggregated over $0,000,000.  Not for fifteen years has there been so  great a sum voted for such purposes.  The bulk of this money goes to roads  that are to form link's of a new transcontinental lino iu opposition to the Canadian Pacific. These roads are- under  separate managements and there are still  large gaps between them.  The plan calls for a line from Quebec  to Port Simpson, on the Pacilic. Starting from the former city there is a railway known as the Great Northern,  which runs southwesterly to Joliette, and  is now being extended westward to join  the Canada Atlantic system at South  -Indian, the Ottawa fiver being bridged  a,t JTawkesbury to permit this being  done.  The Canada Atlantic road runs Avost-  Aviird to Oopot harbor, on Georgian bay,  and the great lakes will lie utili/.cd for  the present as far as Fort'William, near  the head of Lake Superior.  From that point there is now in process of construction a road which will m\(\  at 'Winnipeg, running through the rich  Rainy river country and skirting the  Minnesota boundary, encroaching upon  tliat state for a distance of thirty miles.  This road is known as the Ontario <fc  Rainy River road, and to aid its construction parliament has just voted $1,000,000.  In addition handsome subventions have  been voted bythe legislatures of Ontario  and Manitoba toward the sections falling  within their territory. Altogether tn'o  combined subsidies to this line will  amount to more than $11,000 a mile.  At Winnipeg the Ontario and Rainy  River road will meet tlie Northern Pacific-, which runs westward to Portage la  Prairie, a distance of 00 miles. There  begins the Canadian Northern, owned by  the proprietors of the Ontario & Rainy  River road. It runs northward aiuLwestward for a distance of some 400 miles.  There is a subsidy for this and additions  are being made every year, its objective  point is Edmonton, in the far northwest.  - To another company, supposed, to be  simply an alias for Mackenzie & Mann,the  owners of the Ontario & Rainy River,  there has been granted a charter with a  subsidy of $0200 a milc'for the construction of a road from Edmonton Avestward  to   the  Yellowhead   pass,   through   the  WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 10,  1899.

The  money had been sent by the Banrpie  Nationale to its branch there, it arrived  late in the evening and as the express  company's safe was not in order the  agent put it in the cellar of the station.

Elliot, of the law firm  of Elliot <fe Lennie of- Nelson, appeared  for the company; the miners were not represented by counsel.

Their railroad  fares were advanced by the Ymir Mines,  Limited, and tlie managers of tho company are seeking to withhold the amounts  advanced as fares from the wages earned  by the men, who have quit the company's  employ. ��      -.

Victoria, August 10.���Nelson's lacrosse  team was defeated by the James Ray  club today after a rather closely contested match in Avhich Victoria scored  four goals to Nelson's three. The feature  of tho first-five games was the play of  Lynch at point and the Aveakness of the  Nelson home. "When play aviis commenced for tlie sixth game there Avere  but .'34 minutes' time in Avhich  tlie Nelson boys had to overcome a score  of four goals to one. They decided to  rush things as much as they could, and  Lynch Avas taken out from point and  placed in the home field, Thompson replacing him at 'point.. The advantage of;  the change Avas made manifest in that;  the defence remained fairly strong, AArhile  the home Avas given a-new lease of life.  Nelson secured the sixth game in seven  and a half minutes and the seventh game-  in exactly seven minutes. There Avas just;  half a minute left Avhen the rest Avas  taken out after the seventh game, and  the Nelson boys Avent out in the forlorn,  hope that they might be able to tie the?  score before the Avhistle bleAv, but in this  they Avere disappointed.

Neav Denvkr, August 15.���The recent  strike on the Lost Tiger group is turning  out to be of much larger dimensions and  import than at first supposed, and the indications now are that it -will turn out  one of the banner properties of the camp.  So far but one Avail has been cut, Avith a  showing of eight inches of clean ore and  two and one-half feet of concentrating  mineral. This ore is of the uniform  grade of the camp, and will net substantial returns. It apparently is tho apex  of a big chute below, Avhich subsequent  work Avill no doubt demonstrate. The  surface indications Avere not A'ery prepossessing, but a gain of 20 feet exhibited  bunches of galena appearing in the  quartz, accompanied by iron. This has  given way to the mineral uoav in evidence, and every foot gained increases  and improves the shoAving.

Liberal journals had better allow sir  Charles Tupper to manufacture all the  sympathy he needs under the.sad cireuni-  stances created by the refusal of a, few  Conservative members to consent to an  agreement which betrayed the helpless  victims of the t.ownsite iniquity into the  hands of the C. P. R. Conservative members who .accept the leadership of sir  Charles Tupper on general principles do  not thereby forfeit their right to lea<  themselves in particular cases. These  Conservatives boliovo that the Laurier  government is, to all intents and purposes, in the hands of the railway corporations. They do not seek to force  their opinions on sir Charles Tupper, but  they adhere to these opinions and are  prepared to vote and fight for the ad-  A'aneeinent of these ideas. The railway  question is in politics to stay, and sir  Charles Tupper is too big a man to cherish any petty resentments against Conservatives Avho take their own Avay of  standing up for public rights.  i)'d--< tr.-fe^'-s;- s5s'-1te:--sx'- ^'-s^'s- <sr-;es'--a���� ^st-^.--^- ^^���^-c^^^^.%i?^.^bi-.^-.'SC'^'^''��c:^  I*  ��to fffrUmne*  Daily Edition.

Since I am only a few weeks, homo  from the far east, 1 would give fellow-  Canadians some of the results of my observations and conclusions in those far-  off regions. Let mo promise thti.t my re-  m.-trksare not intended to be on what of  the spectacular the east shows us. Many  able travellers' pens have essayed to.do  tlii.'\ and they have.done tliat feature  ���'t.'t-y well.  It is a source of Anglo-Saxon race  pride,.and intensified in the feeiing as a  jiicniber of the great British confederation, that constrains me to make conclusions and comparisons. Jf I do occasionally prove my human vulnerability and  falVunder the Aveight of the spectacular  displays, which will ever crop up in my  memory as I dwell upon those lands, I  will ask the reader's indulgence. As an  excuse, I append that it is very hard to  obliterate the aesthetic impressions of  the Asiatics from an Anglo-Saxon brain.  ��� Getting back, to the opium war by easy  stages, 1 realize with you that our pulpits  generally have been very derogatory to  Britain for .that war. Among the very,  glaring facts of the war is the great one  that China, refused to open her.ports and  trade    for   opium,    or   anything    else.  *'"iibiHl<?"^  ^-iib0ol��tikej$; ���eW8afev#^fcfc. %' h^ev/^OW1]  ���^%ir��Jj($jihiv ml-iB-t��� ha^e, unroked ..qDimsi,  ;-J'f4loii'0' wWc>fJb" be" sen,t"Bfb"nr fOd-ia/'tJley  .^VrmJii^s-tili ���fconuhiue to . use- it. 1'luvfu  ,'/woitldmse i'fj, iirdeedi ��� WlfcTi only tills;- dif-  " loi'silOQ,, tihitt -tlie opium ��t,l\e.y 'wotlld gets  "4t lixftsie,  woiilcl'be; fiiii rulWioif to bhufc  W^iiigh'.citllj'e, f rcrtaJ.TUlit-V  ,"'" Katiy-i-Hy so-.

And here the morale of the question  comes iu. As 1; before remarked, for over  2,00-0 years tile Chinese have smoked  opium, and will continue to do so, and  now the government at Calcutta litis the  opium commissioner refine and purify the  opium for tlie Chinese before it is allowed  to be shipped for consumption. Then,  granted tliat China will continue to use  opium, as she will, and as every traveller  through that country knows, and knows  well (for China never changes), then I  assert that Britain by the opium'war did  them a service, by giving them better  opium, us well as serving herself in an  enormous revenue. Hence, I submit that  the many abuses heaped upon British  statesmen for tliat war are really outre.  And to get some idea of the persons in  China who smoke opium: . There are, in  round numbers, 350,000,000 persons under  the sway of the Chinese emperor. -At  least two persons out of every 100 smoke  opium. This will give us seven millions  of opium smokers in China. And now,  just, so  Jongas the Hindoo on the sacred  d'angos' banks Avill grow the poppy, ho  is sure of a handsome living from that  source.  You must realize that Britain is the  great Asiatic power on earth, and in Asia  different methods of government mu��t be  in force, in order that she may succeed  out there in the Jar oast, where the  tawny faces are in swarms, and the white  faces are so few. Avery traveller in  China and India knows of the absolute  wisdom of Britain's change of tactics  among the Asiatics.  Then, I say, in summing up, that,  rather than embarrass the British government for this opium trade and many  other measures in the east, Ave should  commend, her, for I feci it away down  deep iu my heart that she is doing the  Asiatics good (while she helps herself) by  giving them peace and prosperity.and a  stable government, which no Asiatic for  a moment questions.  In ft subsequent paper I will endeavor  to interest you by some remarks in reT  gard to the missionary effort as I have  seen it in India a.nd China.  Not for a 'moment would I wound any  good person's feelings in that regard; of  the missionary effort I mean. But you  must remember, you have only one side  of the story, at home, and the Asiatic has  has his side as well to tell.  We must not forget, in our zeal, that  five of tho groat moral teachers of this  world were born in Asia, and of Asian  parents, viz., Moses, Buddha, Confucius,  Jesus. Christ and Mohammed.  Tho deduction must be that they,  above all others, have a side to tell.  From my memory and observations as a  traveller I will speak of their side when  we next meet. .

TTiu AliiKjr is keeping up its reputation  for exclusively incorrect in formation.  Yesterday it published a "scare-head"  article stating that tho (J. J.1. R. was  about to commence tlio immediate construction of the line to Ralfour, and that  the contract for the timber had been  a warded to tho Nelson Saw <fc Planing  Mills. The local ol'iicials of the C. V. .ll.  had heard nothing- about it, and H. 10.  iJeasloy, when interviewed, .said : " Tt has  been generally understood that part of  the line to Dalfour would be built this  year, but as I have heard nothing- recently concerning tho matter, I can neither deny nor affirm the report, though I  do nob think it is true. It is not the  practice to call for bridge timber before  the grading is done."  An engineer of experience, commenting  on the article, said it would be unheard  of to let the contracts for timber and  piles when only the preliminary .survey  work had been done. Such contracts are  let by the engineer iii charge on the  ground when he knows to a foot what is  wanted. To cap all, alderman Hillyer  came into town last night, aud when told  of the big contract said it was the first  he had heard of it. It was not let before  lie went away, and nobody had authority  to make the contract iu liis absence. As  announced at tlie time in Tins Tin hunk,  Alderman Hillyer bought a large quantity of logs about three weeks ago. The  Miner has just heard of it, and hence the  mistake, but as the line is undoubtedly  going to be built on a date to be fixed,  these fairy tales may be expected two or  three times a month in the hope of even-  tua.lly getting a scoop.  In the same issue of the Miner it was  slated that the robber of Maslonka had  been located in Spokane.
