Are Claims Worth Looking at.
Thomas P.' Wall of Pilot Bay,
owner of the Wall group, which is
situated on La France creek, south
" of Crawford bay, was in town on
Saturday. He reports that the
property is looking well. Mr. Wall
of work in the way of tunnels and
crosscuts. The ore is silver-lead
and gives good assay values. ThB
main ledge is large, in some places
being 40 feet in width. Through
the center of the ledge is a paystreak 18 inches wide, giving returns as high as $120. Further development work will be done at an
early date in the spring.
* Although the mineral claims
along this creek are known to carry
rich.ore, very little has been heard
from the locality during the past
few months. There are several
properties undergoing development,
and they promise to become mines.
Outside of these there are a large
number of prospects staked, and although little work has been done on
them, there are' many indications
that they are worth looking at.
Since.the recent - strike , on the
Show King,'which is situated near
the Wall group, the tunnel has been
driven 20 feet further. The vein
has widened to 18 inches and * the
ore.has increased, in value.. The
tunnel cut the vein at a depth of 90
feet below the surface * croppings.
The paystreak is 18 inches wide, of
high-grade shipping ore, while the
whole face'of the tunnel is mineralized, all being ore suitable for concentrating.
The Workman group, situated on
the same creek, is also a promising
property. Considerable development work has been done and work
is now being carried on with a small,
force. They- have encountered 16
inches of copper ore, which'gives by
assay 16 per cent copper. There is
a proposition on foot *to do more
extensive. development at an early
date in the spring.
The Miller group, which is situated nearby, is oh the same lead
and with comparatively little work
a large body of ore has been exposed. Work on this property has
been' suspended, but active work
will be resumed at the expiration
of a month. . „
La France creek district will be
the scene of extensive development
operations this year. ' "
Chances to Make Money.
At his office on Ward street „next
to the court house.at 11, o'clock this
morning sheriff-.Tuck' will selloall
the interest of the Two .-Friends

[-anion and Springer creeks." ,This
Sywoperfcy and shipments
.gi^^g^^p-dtly made; to the
__^ ' "'"filter with satisfae-
torj^^roS^^^^he interest is'a valuable one anoshould fetch a good
price. Sheriff Tuck will also sell'at
the same time shares of James L*
Stamford in the Venus Gold Mining
Company to satisfy a judgment obtained, by Robert Heddle. These
shares are valuable, and the purchaser may reasonably expect an
early return for his investment,

To Resume Development Work.
It is reported that" the local
management of the Duncan Mines
expects orders'from the directors in
the old country to resume .develop-"
.ment work on the Poorman mine,
Tone of the* oldest gold producers in
Nelson district! No development
work has been done since * last
August,* "and -vthe-*stopingY> ground
will-be'worked outfin'four' or-five
months. Fifty men have been
employed-at-stoping between 1 and
2 tunnels, and they sent 40 tons of
good ore to the mill ^daily. Some
.of these men have been laid off,
but were told that they-would aVery
likely be put on againrby ^February

1 Cowes", January 21.—12:15 a.m.—
A collapse, or what the physicians
feared was a collapse, occurred
about 10 o'clock last night. Arrangements were hurriedly made to
provide special telephone and telegraphic facilities. It is understood
that the physicians have resorted
to artificial methods to prolong life,
such as are used only in cases of persons in the extremes. Tlie Associated Press learns that the paralysis
is chiefly evident in the face, one
side of which appears 'to have lost
all nerve and muscular power. At
six"o'cloe_Tlast evening tlie malady
had not yet reached the vital
organs, although it had caused an
almost total loss of the power of
speech. What was so much feared
was that the brain might be
attacked. Keenly sensitive of her
affliction and appearance, the
queen had absolutely refused to see
any on© but her nurses and doctors,
and it is understood that the prince
of Wales is the only exception to
this -rule, and that his interview
lasted'but a few minutes. The
nature of the malady is known only
to a very few,.and it is the royal
wish that the public should not be
• informed of the existence of
paralysis. Y <'■:-. ■"''-   .-■-   :
New York; January 20i—In a
special cable dispatch dated London,
6 a. m., Isaac N.. Ford, correspondent of the New^York Tribune,* says,
"The prince of Wales had'intended
to spend Sunday at Sandringham,
and' visit the queen in' the course of
a fortnight. * He: decided in the
morning to remain at Marlborough
House''*''but changed his; plans at'
noon upon receiving ■ dispatches
from Osborne urging him to go to
Cowes without delay. The-railroad officials at Victoria, station
had been warned to have a special
train in readiness at short notice,
and the prince arrived:at the station with royal punctuality a minute before the '.appointed, time.
Princess Louise, who had expected
to'go to Osborne on Monday to take
the place of princess. Christian, had
also received an unexpected summons and she joined the prince of
Wales at the station in the course
of a few minutes. The prince, in a
dark suit, short overcoat and felt
hat, was a conspicuous figure on
the station platform. During the
short interval of delay, contrary to
his usual habit, he walked restlessly
up and down the.platform and appeared   deeply.-^agitated  and   depressed. , y
j " The melancholy significance of
this sudden' journey was appreciated !by   the   dullest   of   railway
porters, ,and the train moved out in
silence.   A great shadow seemed to
fall upon London during the afternoon, when   special   editions   announced that the queen was suffer-.
ring from „ physical^ prostration ac-
"com_?aniedY   by  psymptoms   -thafi
caused   deepianxiety., ' Tne   half
.holiday hail come after a week of
ftqil,'-but tliere"was a strange hush
"in "the"- Strand andj Piccadily, and
every face^ in^omnibuses and on foot,
was care wor hand!sad.   The crowds
of clerks and sfiop"girls knew that
the good queen"* was "lying at the
point of death,- and' that her- children were hastening 'to her bedside,
and they were sobered and  saddened   by .the'-thought that .this'
might bevtheir last'chance to -show
their loyalty^tp her by communing"
with.their^heart-r^aud being .still.'
London has" witnessed all the triumphs of the-Jqueeh's reigri, from
the gray morning when "her accession was announced'at old Kensington to-the seeon'd jubilee, but it
never paid so" fine a tribute to her
virtues and nobility of character as
on'this murky Saturday, afternoon,
"when' a"reverend;hus_i,fell upon the
crowds in the streets,'"-' arid nobody
-bad-jthe heart .to "s.ftiifei6:>Ihe^mati-;
nee audiences at thel theatres seemed
half ashamed to laugh at the comic
business on the "stage, and when the
curtain fell they "rose from a common impulse and sang "God Save
the Queen?  reverently,   and with
deep emotion, and there were tears
in   many   eyes   and    voices   were
tremulous when the solemn refrain
_ended.    Glorious   indeed    is    the
reign   whicli -leaves every subject
with a sense of personal   sorrow
and bereavement when the sovereign is'stricken unto "death.
- "The royal circle " at Osborne
could not be complete, for the empress,Frederick was an* invalid at
Cronberg, free from pain, but menaced with a recurrence of a fatal
-malady The-duke^of_Comiaught
was in Germany for the purpose of
visiting her, but was caught on tlie
way at Berlin and summoned in
haste to Osborne. The princess of
Wales came up to London during
the afternoon and went on to
Osborne with the duke of York.
Princess Henry of Battenberg and
princess Christian were already
with the queen and welcomed the
prince of Wales and princess
Louise when they arrived. It has
al ways been united, the. royal family, for the-queen had ruled her
children with the law of love, and
there had never been- jealousies or
strife among them. The queen's
will has always been,.lawY for her
children, and in honoring her they
had been>joihed together iin. bonds
of affection. Mournfully- they
gathered in response to the/; phyr.
sicians' warning that the end might
come at any time,- as. the aged
sovereign's powers were 'waning.
But happily there was ah improvement in the symptoms before nightfall. The princess of • Wales arid
the duke of York arrived during'
the. evening. The duke of Con-
naught is expected today, and a
warship has been sent to fetch the
German emperor to Spithead.
':'_\"It'Jwas one of /tlieY;gloomiest
nights London has ever .known.
Not a light flickered from Buckingham palace, where so many stately
functions had been ordered by the
queeni The old . palace of St.
James, where the girlish sovereign
had shown herself at the .window
when her accession was proclaimed
sixty-three years ago, was dark and
gloomy, and there was no light in
Marlborough house. Pall Mall was
empty and silent, and. the Strand
was strangely quiet at the theater
hour. It was tho first night at the
Globe theater, where "Sweet Nell
of   Old Devry"   had returned  in
triumph from tlie provinces, and
the old playhouse was crowded to
welcome her. * Miss ■ Neilson has
seldom acted with more pathos and
dramatic force, and Frederick Terry
as "Merry Charles." was brilliantly
effective, and'if the audience enjoyed the entertainment, it did not
forget tlie shadow of the impend-,
ing. calamity, at Osborne.* When
the plaudits ceased at the close of
the play,5,"God Save the Qiieen"
was sung/with fervor and solemnity,
as was done also at 'every theater
and-^concert hall.' Slowly'the
theaters_<a were-.emptied, and the1
Strand,. Whitehall and, Picadilly
were quiet and dreary.' '
"At midnight the, queen was still
living,-'for the bells'had not begun
to toll, .but there/was little 'hope,
.that.the* improvement - reported in
"the medical, bulletins would be
maintained/ The last word which
the soldiers heard on leaving South-
amp ton^at noon for South 'Africa
,was-that-the queen--was -sinking.
It^was a per mature alarm that-saddened them as,they hetided for the
open sea.' There was better news
at the club houses' towards mid--
night, but it -'was clear that f there
was no real hope entertained by the
physicians of anything more than a
tr'ansitoryv'rally. ,.The glorious "Victorian reign was slowly/ but „ surely
approaching an *end, 'and silently-
the preparations were making for
opening the reign of.- E_dwardyVII.,
, The archbishop of Canterbury, ~and
the lord chamberlain ,were at Osborne, where the prince of Wales
could be summoned to the throne,
and the prime minister was preparing to join them on the morrow,
when a council of state might be
ordered, and the national anthem
be changed to "God Save the King."
London, January 21.—This morning's newspapers have thrown off
all pretence of any. possibility of
her majesty's recovery, and sadly
admit that the, end may come at
any moment. Therefore, they proceed to review her majesty's long
and illustrious reign, as though she
were no more, aud to dilate upon
the wonderful influence she wielded
in European politics for so many
London, January 21.—In the
closing moments of queen Victoria's
life another grave portent arises,
namely the serious indisposition of
tlie prince of Wales. He was so
worried, tired and exhausted last
evening that he could not respond
immediately to the summons from
Osborne House. The most he could
do was to promise that he would
leave London at 8 o'clock this
morning if possible. The prince of
Wales is spending the night at
Marlborough House, and emperor
William at Buckingham palace.
Rome, January 21.—The pope
yesterday telegraphed cardinal
Vaughn, in London, to express to
the royal family the feeling of sorrow which all Christendom shared
with England, regarding , the
illness of queen Victoria, adding:
"The liberalreignof thequeen,which
has permitted the Catholic church
to increase in the United Kingdom,
will leave an indelible trace upon
all christian hearts."

FouRhtYfpr Blood.
.Paris/ January-20.—The long-
expected duel between count de
Lubersac and baron Robert de
Rothschild was fought with swords
at 11 o'clock this morning on baron
Edhiond de Rothschild's estate at
Bonlogno-sur-Seine. Tho carriage
with the principals, seconds, doctors and a few friends arrived there
from Paris shortly before 11
o'clock. Count de LuberEac's seconds were M. Sohege and coiint de
Laborde, and those   of  baron de
Rothschild   were   baron   Leonino
and viscount de Bondi.   The duel
began at 11:10 and lasted ten minutes, when -count de Lubersac received a lunge perforating his arm
from the elbow to the armpit.   The
duel was then stopped.   Both the
count and thev baron fought' most
determinedly, neither flinched^and
neither~showed the slightest desire'
to spare the other.     Sixteen "engagements took place, all 'of a desperate character.   The combatants
attacked each other furiously.  The
sleeves of their shirts were literally
torn   to   pieces by  the, points of
their swords   as , they   repeatedly
lunged at each other.   At-the sixteenth, onslaught baron de.-Roths-'
child   lunged   at   the   count, who
tried to parry, but failed, and the
baron's sword penetrated his arm
'just above the elbow and issued at
the armpit.   The doctors, MM. Ber-
ger   and   Poirier,  -examined    the
wound. ~ They declared the count's
life was not in danger, but it was
impossible   to   continue   the duel.
Count de Lubersac was then driven
back to Paris.   . - ,    .

■.. Some days ago Charles-IT. -Wolf,
manager of the Sullivan mines Jin
East'~ Kootenay,   accompanied the'
manager of   the Trail smelter jto
Montreal     to    consult    president
Shaughnessy    of     the   Canadian
Pacific  on-the subject of   a new
contract with the Sullivan.     They
were there met by senator George
Turner of Spokane, the president
of the .Sullivan Mining Company.
The conference, it is said,  resulted
in a contract for the year 1901  between the company and the Trail
smelter under which a graduated
freight and treatment ratie, varying
nccording to the quality of the ore,
"isTgiven, under wh'icirfclie'mine will"
get on an average .$2 per ton more
for tho ore shipped than it did in
1000.   Tho new contract is stated
to be a satisfactory one and it will
be the policy of   the company to
ship as much ore under it as can be
handled .advantageously.     During
tho month of December the Sullivan shipped 1330 tons of oro to the
Trail smelter, so it will be seen that
tho Sullivau is a large producer.

At the Ruth Mine.
On Friday forenoon a mucker
named John Kennedy was killed in
the Ruth mine at Sandon. He was
tramming in a drift in which a
miner was stoping. This miner was
shovelling the waste into a chute
which was two sets of timbers back
from the face of the drift, aud it is
supposed that Kennedy misjudged
the distance when he stopped his car,
and on going forward fell into the
open chute, the lower end of which
was some eighty feet below the
drift. When found, Kennedy's
heart was still beating, but his neck
was broken and his skull fractured.
He was 22 years of age and a fine
young man. He was a member of
the Sandon Miner's Union, and the
body was taken by them to Virden,
Manitoba, where his relatives live.
This is the first fatal accident that
lias occurred at the Ruth, and manager Alexander bore all the local expenses of the funeral.

the war office' has* set aside his appeal for au official inquiry into -the
Lindley affair. - The only effect of
his attempt to have the case tried
by the newspapers has been the
creation of a general opinion in
military, circles that staff work in
South Africa has been , defective
and been responsible for many mishaps. Lord Colville, Gatacre and
Warren are the chief losers in a
war which has been a lottery of
reputations with twenty blanks for
every prize. General Hunter, who
has been one of the winners, has
been"invalided—homeT^and general-
Tucker, of whom little has been
heard during the campaign, has
taken his placo at Bloemfontein.
General Clements, who was recently
concerned in the serious mishap in
the western Transvaal, has been
advanced in military command.
This is an indication that colonel
Broadwood has been held responsible by lord Kitchener for that re-
vorse aud has beeu ordered home
on that account, after having been
vindicated by lord Roberts for the
more serious mishap at Sannas Post
last spring.
The war office has been playing
havoc with military reputations,
and is now complaining that the
newspapers have made too much of
general French, whose ability in
the field, lord Lansdowne seems to
think, has been heavily over-rated.:
There is no doubt that the queen's
wishes have prevailed, and that
lord Roberts has consented to the
appointment of the duke of Con-
naught as adjutant-general on the
expiration of sirV Evelyn Wood's••■;
term. This appointment will have
an important bearing upon army
reforms, since it will render it ft
delicate matter for the members of
parliament to speak critically of
military men while the queen's son
is the chief spirit at headquarters.
The resignation of .the duke of Cam-'
bridge was desired by the men "in
parliament on that account, and
there has been greater freedom of
discussion while lord Wolseley has
been in command of the army."

The  building and operation of a smelter  at Kaslo should do as much for  that town as the building and op-  ��� eration of smelters have done for  Nelson, Trail, and Grand Forks.  The building of the smelter at Nel-  " son gave this town an impetus that  did a power of good. Real estate  values stiffened, building operations  commenced, and all classes of peo-  ._ple_had-renewed_conndence_in_the.  town's future. What is true of  Nelson is also true of Trail and  Grand Forks. No town in the  country is more deserving of permanent prosperity than Kaslo, for  her people have made brave efforts  and great sacrifices to .hold their  own. May the smelter be built,  and built at once,, is the wish of  The Tribune.  The Tribune is accused of being  in favor of placing an export duty  on ore.   Such accusations are not  based on facts.   The Tribune is in  favor of legislation that will hove a  tendency   to   give   the   people   Of  British Columbia the maximum of  benefit that should be derived from  the mining   industry.    The maximum of benefit can only be secured  when the raw ores of our mines are  smelted in local smelters, and the  product   of   the   smelters    locally  worked into articles  of commerce'.  This is slowly being brought about  without legislation, but legislation  would hasten the good work.   The  Tribune  favors    legislation  ^hat  would lighten the burdens of taxation on the mine owner who has  his ore treated in British Columbia  , and at the same time increase the  burden   of   taxation on tbe mine  owner who   prefers   to   send   his  ore to a foreign country for "treatment.   The owners   of the   Knob  Hill and Ironsides mines at Phoenix  are   now   mining 600 tons of ore  daily, which is treated at a, smelter  At Grand Forks, British Columbia.  This ore pays the province* approxi-  . mately, $36 a day in taxes, and, in  addition,   the   smelter   at   Grand  Forks pays, taxes on real estate and  personal   property.    The   building  and the operation of the smelter  lias   helped   establish  real ' estate  values at Grand Forks, and   that  town is flourishing and. progressive.  The owners of the Le Roi mine at  Rossland are also mining  600 tons  of ore a day.   This ore is treated at  a   smelter   at  Northport   in 'the  United States.   The province has  had- great   difficulty in collecting  any-tax at. all on the ore, because  the owners of the mine, who are  also   the   owners   of   the smelter,  claim that the freight and treat-  rnentYrate on the ore is almost as  much per ton as the ore is worth at  the pit mouth. The smelter at  which the ore is treated being  located just across the line in the  United States cannot well be taxed  in British Columbia. Now, which  of these two mine owners are of  the most benefit to the people of  this province ?  ���The plans for- the new official  residence of the lieutenant-governor  of the province have been accepted,  and it'seems that they were drawn  by men who but lately established  an office in' Victoria. This makes  the newspapers of Vancouver cry  aloud and clamor for a new deal.  The best is none too good for British Columbia, and the' newspapers  that are crying for a new deal on  these plans do not hesitate to hire  the best men they can get as editors  and reporters and printers, and  never ask a question as to where  they were born and bred.  Apparent*-*-, an organized effort  is being mode to make it appear  that the 2 per cent tax on the output of metalliferous mines is not  only an unfair one, but that it  works a great hardship on the men  who are developing mines. The  latest newspaper to take up this  side of the contention is the Revelstoke Herald, which is an offshoot of the Calgary Herald, whose  editor is now in Victoria "working" the provincial' government  to  reduce  or abolish the  2 per  cent   tax.    Tlie    Herald   may   be  sincere, but its editor is not well  posted on  the question which he  attempts to discuss.   The  Herald  says the tax is a royalty, and that  it is levied on the gross output  of  the   mines.      The   tax   is   not   a  royalty, and it is not levied on the  gross output   of  the mines.   The  tax is levied in lieu of all other  forms of taxation on  mining property, whether held as real estate  or as personal property, and it is  levied on the selling price of the  ore at the pit  mouth.   The contention that the tax works a hardship on the poor man who is developing a prospect is, to say the  least, a trifle far-fetched.    Ore to  the value of $5000 is exempt from  taxation, and there are few claims  undergoing     development     which  ship   during   a   year   ore   that is  worth $5000 at the pit mouth.  The  cry against the tax is raised by the  managers  of foreign  mining companies, and non-residents like the  editor   of    the    Calgary   Herald,  who   object   to   paying   any - taxation,   either   direct   or   indirect,  but who never tire in making demands for appropriations for building roads and- trails to their properties.   Taxation should be just, and  no tax that has yet been levied is  more fair to all the people of the  province  than  the  2 per cent tax  on the output of metal mines.    The  minerals that are mined and  sold  cannot * be replaced, and the land  from which the minerals are taken  is afterwards valueless for taxation  purposes.    A mine may produce ore  of* the value of $1,000,000 in three  years, and be non-productive ever  afterwards.   The tax-evaders want  such a mine taxed as real estate, in  order to escape taxation altogether;  as for every one that  pays real  estate taxes promptly - to the province,'two never "pay at all.   An  exhausted mine is just as worthless  an* asset to the province on which  to realize delinquent'taxes as it is  to any other creditor of a mining  company who seeks to recover a  debt.   On the other hand, a mine  that produces in three "years ore of  the value of $1,000,000 at- the pit  mouth pays the province $20,000 in  all under the 2 per cent tax, which  does   not   seem   to be  an   unfair  share to return to the province.  taxation  men en-  industry.  Compare this rate of  with what is paid by the  gaged in the lumbering  One industry is much the same as  the other, for both take away that  which cannot be replaced. The  market price of rough lumber at  the mills in Kootenay'averages $10  for a thousand feet board measure.  Every ten dollars' worth of lumber  pays the province 50 cents in direct  taxation, as against 20 cents paid  by the man who sells ten dollars  worth of ore. The mill-owner  strips land of timber, and the land  so stripped often afterwards becomes a taxable asset as a farm.  The mine-owner strips land of its.  ore, and the land so stripped is  worthless ever afterwards for any  purpose.     J. J. Young of the Calgary  Herald is one of a deputation who  are in Victoria urging the provincial government to abolish the 2  per cent tax on the output of metal  mines. It js understood that Mr.  Young's mineral-claim holdings are  undeveloped wild cats in the neighborhood of Trout Lake in" the  Lardeau district.  The present city council have the.  confidence of the people, as 'their  election ��� by acclamation shows.  They were not elected because they  promised to work great reforms;  no such promises were made by  either of the seven gentlemen who  will sit at the council-board tonight  for the first time. Their promises  were few, and are easy of carrying  out. The city, has three revenue-  earning "public utilities.. They  should be kept up to the highest  possible state of efficiency, and if  they are no sensible taxpayer will  object to the cost incurred as long  as there are no leakages. The various civic departments should be  made' thoroughly efficient, as the  expenditures now required are far  beyond those of an ordinary-sized  ^B**_Z^ ^__��.��.^__' t___t__5_ ____ __m_? __���_*_��__ ____*___*t ________'  ____������'^^ *-_5^  __���?/���_! ���^W*': *m___,'^L__\ ^___^__\ '^**\'^&_^^~\^~*\^^0.'^^. ^a^^M-*: ^*W>'<^^'a����<|fr  '    ^^__t_.._0* __0 *''00* A_0 ' At0* 00 ' 40' 00 ' ^0* __F * 00*'^0 .9"___W*~__0 ' _W0*:-__0 m'__0  to  to  to  B  to  ************************************  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ��� ������  CLEARANCE SALE ...

Certainly, the progress made in  civic government during the nineteenth century was greater than  the progress which would be necessary to reach the, ideal conditions  pictured by Mr. Warner. As he is  , an authority'on municipal affairs,  it is interesting to know what Mr.  Warner hopes for in the way of  municipal reforms. Here is his prediction :  Artificial light has for centuries  . been recognized as a necessity of  civilized man.and public order.'-- It  is, therefore, rapidly and ,certainly  coming to be regarded as a want  which should be directly met by  the municipality; and it is as  nearly certain as may be, first, that  public control,' and; in general,  public operation of city light plants  will prevail. .- And we are tending  rapidly toward a similar,policy as  to heat. Y - _", " - * - .<  ' As to transport facilities;^ not  merely'will clean, dry and spacious  streets be the rule, but systems of  "subway transport will probably be  more extensive than are now surface ones; while, both;above and  under ground, the rate,of transport  will be such as to approach a free  supply? That is, fares will .be" so  low, as compared with other factors,  in the use of cars, that - these selfsame factors, and not expense, will  determine their use by- each.' "-It is  probable that, as: in the case of  water, the. expense-^of individual  supply, so free as not to -limit use,  will be met by fares so petty as to  be scarcely more than required to  prevent waste; and - the * operation  by the city of these "moving' highways" will become as much a matter of course as is now the repair  and preservation of our streets for  pedestrians.. The whole, field of express service will be so extended as  .to provide not merely messenger  service much more complete than  ' nowj but for the safe carriage, and  prompt delivery to any part of the  municipality'of articles deposited at  any other part. Telephone service,'  also, will be correspondingly cheap  and abundant.  One result of increased transport  and communication facilities will  -bethe-growth^-of-public-kitchensr  -where shall be prepared the meals  of most of our citizens, which they  will receive ready served, of better  quality and more promptly and  regularly than the domestic, economy of the average household can  hope to furnish them. These will  have been preceded by public laundries, which will relieve the wage  earner's household of a most important item of its present discomforts.  It is not easy to predict how shall  be solved the problem of manual  labor by married women. Whether  with better wages and cheaper living they will be in general relieved  of other cares, than those of wife  and mother? or whether, with more  opportunity for self-support and  partially relieved from present  home duties, the number of wage  earners among married women will  increase? It is practically certain,  however, that the right of every  child to good care, nurture and education will be better protected with  every decade; ..that day nurseries  will be one of the public facilities  soon provided as a matter of course;  and that labor which takes mothers  from their - children will be permitted only in cases where proper  care of all children below school age  is definitely provided for.  Public baths as nearly free as to  be habitually used by all and so  numerous and extensive as to leave  such use unlimited, will be as much  a matter of course as sufficient air  for breathing. Still greater relief,  not merely to the poor, but especially to .those of moderate and large  means, will result from the complete system of hospitals that, by*-  2000, for one who is so ill that he  cannot go about, to remain at his  residence will be as unusual as a  hundred years since It was universal    fo every copaideraMe city,  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITlt WniCII IS AMALGAMATED  THE BANI-i OF "BRITISH COLUMBIA.

New Conservative Policy.   =_i Hamilton-Herald. .���  It is now virtually admitted even  by Liberal journals, that the conditions upon which the Crow's >Test  Pass Railway subsidy was granted  have not been very helpful in securing justice to the people of British  Columbia in the matter of transportation. The 0. P. R. monopoly  is as strong as ever it was, and  there has not been any appreciable  relief in freight rates in the Pacific  province. The subsidy granted to  tho C. P. R. in aid of the Crow's  Nest Pass Railway was almost  large enough to build the line. How  much better would it have been for  the Dominion government to have  built the line itself and operated it  as a government work, granting  running rights over it to all railway  companies on equal terms? If that  .policy had been pursued, the immense coal fields of the Crow's Nest  Pass could have been taken over by  the government and been used as a  source of revenue to the Dominion,  as well as to British Columbia,  thus removing all danger of a  monopoly of the coal supply.  The short-sighted policy of heavily subsidizing railway enterprises  should by this time be generally  discredited in Canada. It should  give place to government construction of railway lines in air cases  where such construction is necessary in the public interest. Two  great opportunities were lost when  the Crow's Nest Pass Railway and  the Rainy River Railway were  heavily subsidized as private enterprises. These two railways might  have been important links in a  transcontinental railway wholly  under government control.  Even yet it may not be too late  to plan for such a system, and begin the work by extending the Intercolonial Rail way. westward to .the  lakes.   This is the only xneans of en-  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capital Authorized $2,500,000  Capital Paid up $2,458,603  Rest  $1,700,000  D. R. Wllkie, General Manager.  E.

It cannot be done by competing lines controlled by private  corporations, for, in the. end, competition between private corporations is sure to result in co-operation. A transcontinental line operated as a public work for the bene-  fit'of the public; would effectually  prevent the monstrous discrimination in freight rates against Canadian shippers and in favor of American shippers, and the discrimina-,  tion in favor of .some localities'  against others in this country.  Here is, a new policy for the Conservative party, ready to hand.  Will its leaders have courage and  farsightedness enough to seize upon  it?  Mining the Chief Industry.  The entrance of ' the Commonwealth of Australia into existence  with the new year deserves especial  mention in view of the importance  of the new state from au mining  point of view. There are few  countries in which mining forms so  large and important part of the  national wealth and resources as in  Australia; and the union of the  colonies will doubtless have a favorable effect on'their' mineral industries, as' on all-others." Uniformity  of tariff and patent legislation will  be a great advantage, and others  will be manifest in-time. There is  great growth and prosperity before  the new' Commonwealth, and its  mineral industry will contribute a  full share of the gain. ���  Capital is Abundant. ,  -* The1 tendency- to compete with  'the so-called trusts and1 combines is  again illustrated by the statement'  that the Carnegie Steel Company is  about to erect a-plant for making  tubes'and pipes on a'large scale. In  this case, of course, there is no idea  entertained of selling out to the  combination. It is simply a business proposition-, the Carnegie company doubtless realizing that a  part of its steel production can be  marketed profitably in the form indicated. -It is.altogether probable^  that we shall see a great expansion  of competing plants during the  next year or two. Capital is abundant, and there are plenty of capable men ready so undertake the  management of new plants.    ���   ���>  Surpassing*  Display in  Fall Suitings  All the fashionable creations  in Fall and Winter wear are  ~inclucled~in my last consign^  ment of Scotch and Irish  Serges, Tweeds and Worsteds, and Fancy Trouserings  E.
