Compensation Is likewise found in the undiminished loyalty by  the colonies. ��� ,,   ���  Christmas brought a change of weather  conditions iu Europe, where severe snow  and frost have given way to cold rain ana  sleet. Jn London the wretched weather  threw a gloom over the festivities. Shopkeepers sutfered heavily, as the downpour  kept thousands of people in doors.

Mr. btrat-  fon holds that without further legislative  enactment the state through its attorney  general may maintain proceedings in the  court to protect the people against trusts  and monopolies and unlawful combinations  either under the constitutional provisions  prohibiting them or under tho common law.  While the law is thus clear thc facts are  so few and the real transaction so little  known that it is not possible lo say at this  time whether the facts exist upon which  a suit could be successfully maintained by  tho state.

KASLO, December 24.���[Special from a  Tried Correspondent.]���Today the smelter  bonus by-law passed by a unanimous vote,  and the smelter exemption by-law had  only one vote against It.

Mr. Stewart appears tickled with  the site and proposition, and ere the quack-  let of the ducklet we may see the liyerlet  of tho dustlet on the smelter site.  Last Sunday Miss A.

At present the only industry appears  to bu the school house.-  The merchants of Kaslo have their windows decorated in grand style, and every  citizen, with the smelter swelling, seems to  think that it will be a merry Christmas,  and a happy and prosperous New Vcar for  the people of Kaslo.

A  complete report of the 1900 census has just  been published and the figures are discouraging. The frequently made assertion in  England that France is dying out in tho  same manner as Spain declined seems to  have an echo in this census bulletin. The  total population of France was last year  38,517,975. Thero was 827,297 births during  the year, and 853,285 deaths. This excess of  deaths over births causes the greatest  alarm. There were 299,081 marriages and  7157 divorces during 1900. The French government has for years put a premium on  babies by offering pensions to fathers of  large families. This stimulated tho growth  of population in rural districts, but the abnormally low birth rate in Paris and other  large cities offsets the result. The native  population of France, tne official report  says, does not grow, but remains stationary This has stirred up government oflicials again, and it may be that some new  and drastic legislation may result, which  will primarily affect marital conditions in  the large towns.   Civil Government Decided Upon.  WASHINGTON, December 24��� Secrotary  Root and representative Cooper of Wisconsin, chairman of the house committeo  on insular affairs, have been ln conference  and as a result of this and further consultations to be held during tho holidays  an Important legislative measure is to bo  drafted for complete civil government for  tho Philippines. Already the measure is  framed in the rough, and the finished bill  will be ready for introduction In the house  soon after the recess, by which time judge  Taft will have arrived from tho Philippines to jjlvc sucli advice as congress may  desire on the various features involved.  It is said that tho general purposo of the  measure is to bring about self-government  among the natives at the earliest practicable date, and this is to be accomplished  largely by giving stability and systematl-  zatlon to the many civilizing agencies of  commerce, education, telegraph, etc.. Those  taking part in the framing of the measure  have found it a task of unusual proportions, far more formidable than that of  drafting the Porto Rico civil government  bill, owing to the conditions in the Philippines, the continued presence of the military branch of the transitional stage of  the natives toward self-government.  Big Fire in Connelsville.  CONNELSVILLE, December 24.���Almost  an entire square was wiped out by fire  here today, entailing a loss of $75,000. The  fire lasted from 1 until 5 o'clock, and for  several hours It looked as if the entire  down-town district would be wiped out.  By hard work the firemen kept the (lames  confined to the square bounded by West,  Main, Arch and Orchard streets. The heaviest loss is on the furniture store of B. P.  Wallace, $38,000.   tNo Change in Sewell's Condition.  - CAMDEN, New Jersey, December 24.���  Senator Sewell was reported by the physicians fo be holding his own. He is in the  same condition as he has been for the past  three-or four days. One of his physicians  said that no change for the worse was an-  tclipated at present.  WILL INCREASE THE WACES  To Improve the Service. -  -- CHICAGO, December 24.���At a special  meeting of the general managers association held here today a movement was  started which may result in a great in-c  crease of wages of trainmen, engineers,  firemen and switchmen on all the big  railroad systems east of- Chicago. The  meeting was called' at the request of the  Peur-sylvania company, tho cause teing  tlie coal shortage in Chicago and other  cities, shortage of cars and the congested condition of traffic in. general.  The coal situation, however, was the  moving cause of the meeting, and a discussion of it led to a "canvas of the entire situation. In 1he opinion of many  of the general manajcrs the general  congestion is duo in a measure to the  inefficiency in the service rendered by  employees- and this view loci to a discussion of the labor and wsge situation.  Although no formal resolution was  passed upon the subject, it was generally admitted a raise in wages of em-  plcvees would do most toward stimulating" them to do better work, which in  turn would help relieve congested conditions as well as to prevent them.  PITTSBURG, December 24.���The car  shortage in the Pittsburg district is  worse than ever before, and as a result  many mills are shut down or only iu  partial operation. All of the mills  elong the Alleghany valley road, including the Carnegie city mills, have suspended, and it is probable that the big  Carnegie company plants at Homestead and Duquesne will he unable to resume for a week or more after the  Christmas holidays shut down. President Schwab, during his recent visit  here, said $3,000,000 worth of iron products was piled up in the yards of these  two concerns with no present prospect  of removal.

For four blocks south of Union street  lhe grade is so steep that the cars have  to be pulh'd up by specia) machinery.  As a car containing fifteen people had  nearly reached the top of the hill it  broke loese in some manner, and rushed  down the grade with frightful speed. It  kept the track until Union street was  reached. Here stood an empty car waiting to be hauled to the summit. This obstruction was crashed irto and wrecked  by the runaway car, which then jumped  the rails and was brought to a standstill  bv a telegraph pole which it struck with  terrific force, completely demolishing  the car and scattering its occupants in  all directions.   Wants to Control Trusts.  WASHINGTON, December 24.���Representative Jenkins, of Wisconsin, who  proposed a constitutional amendment to  control trusts .in the last congress has  introduced a measure of similar character. It provides that: Congress shall  have power to regulate commerce in the  United States; all private corporations,  copartnerships and joint stock companies shall be under the control of congress; congress shall have power to regulate, control, prohihit and dissolve all  contracts and combinations in restraint  of trade or commerce. In absence ot  leg:sIation by congress pursuant to this  article, all powers conferred upon congress by this article may be exercised  by the several states.  Mr. Jenkins' amendment is substantially the same as the one he proposed  last year, which received a majority  vote in the house, although not the necessary two-thirds required.

Dealers and players were lifted from tlieir  ���feet by the force of the explosion.  CAMPAIGN WILL BE WARM  TEMPLEMAN OUT  One Side of the Story.  VICTORIA, Dacember 24.���The government has yet given no indication of  their intention to bring on the Victoria election. In abstaining from a public declaration on this point they are  playing a deeper game than would appear to the casual observer. The premier may not be a heaven-born politician,  but he is rapidly learning that if he is  to successfully cope_ with thc oflice-  liungry amalgamation who are opposing  him. he will have to use the same kind  of weapons which they so artistically  forge. Therefore, when the federal government have announced the date upon  which an election will be held to fill the  Dominion vacancy existing in Victoria,  a writ returnable, on the day previous  to tlie Dominion nomination day will be  issued by the provincial authorities,  and Mr. R. Ii. Drewry will probably contest Victoria City as prvincial secretary,  Seveial, causes exist which will force  Mr. Dunsmuir to take this line of action.  On more than ono occasion in the past  that fragment of the Liberal party who  regard senator Templeman as their  mouthpiece have, metaphorically speaking, handed out gold bricks with pro-  niscuous extravagance to secure support to tide them and the party over a  crisis. Their aim accomplished they pro-  ceeded"to propel the Juggernaut cai of  their personal aims and ambitions, rc-  gaidless of who were crushed beneath  its wheels. Mr. George Riley will m  any event be the Liberal candidate for  Victoria in the coming Dominion contest, ard if Mr. vBodwell is defeated,  Mr. Riley will have virtually a walkover. Both Messrs. Riley and Drewry  have strengthened themselves immensely -with, thc rank and file of the Liberal  ratty by absolutely refusing to countenance in any way Mr. Bodwell's candidature, and it is well known that both  have expressed themselves very strongly  ou the fact that Mr. Bodwell should allow his personal ambitions to jeopardize  the chances of '.he party to which lu^  (Mr. Bodwell) is supposed to belong,  gaining its first success in thc Capita!  City." The majority of the Conserva lives  also feel that the interests of the province Aould come before party feeling,  and recognizing that with a Liberal administration at Ottawa a .member in  sympathy with the government would  receive greater recognition than one in  oprcsition thereto, they fully,, express  themselves in favor of Mr. Riley being  returned. But these same0 Conservatives, together with seventy per cent of  the Liberals, ara pronounced in their  antagnoism to Mr. Bodwell, his aspirations and his associates. They, may  sink their party affiliation so far as to  countenance one whom they consider to  ae-a-i'safellJjiberal.Jiut.theyijvviliJicveri  assent to strengthening the hands of the  fiee-booters who are backing Mr. Bodwell in his campaign.  The Times has again trimmed its sails  to catch the prevailing breeze, and instead of openly advocating Mr. Bodwell's  candidature, it devotes ito editorial  columns to veiled threats of interference from Ottawa. Senator Templeman  has gone east, and it is rumored that  his going was accelerated by intimation from the pow-ors that be that an  explanation would be in order of tho  unaccountable course taken by his piper  in coming out so strongly in support  of Mr. Bodwell.  When sir Wilfrid Laurier was in Victoria with the thou duke cf Cornwall,  lie took the opportunity by personal interviews of gaining a very clear insight  into tlio actual conditions of the Liberal  liurtv in British Columbia, and it was  an open secret that ho expressed himself as by no means satisfied with the  way things had been managed by thc  old regime who had installed themselves  a= keepers of the Liberal conscience in  tliis province. He suggested to them as  mildly as possible that it would probably benefit thc province ns well as the  party if a little less attention was paid  to their personal aspirations, and his  advice has heen wisely followed by the  majority.  It can be seen that Mr. Bodwell tias  a difficult task before" him. The light  will he the bitterest ever fought in tliis  city, and mon and things will be handled  without gloves. No mercy will be asked  and none will he shown. Mr. Bodwell's  chief supporters have commenced tho  campaign by traducing everyone who  supperts the. government.  More Fr^rch Politics.

Sir Thomas said: "I-cannot say how delighted I am. It merely  shews that if a man does the right thing  in America they appreciate it as no  ether people do.

The submission at this late dale of a'  money by-law for $15,000 to meet the  city's overdraft at the Bank of Montreal  will not avail the Fletcher administration anything. ��� Their financial year  ends on December 31st, six days from today. They have no right to spend a dollar after January 1st aud no right to  issue a debenture.  m  ���m  m  The dismissal of the chief of the fire  department   is   only   in   keeping   with  other acts of the Fletcher administration, ruled as it is by little cliques who  use mayor Fletcher as an instrument to  work th-eir revenge on individuals.    No  two of the city's   officials   trust   each  other; all arj distrustful.    The chief of  the fire department was disliked by the  chief of police aad tlie city clerk, and  they, for the moment, have the ear of  the mayor.    Their  turn will  probably  come next, for they arc as cordially dis-  pised by   oth*r   city   oflicials   as   they  'w*eli(^h"itt^_ihr_tlTei"i^liatred  of the de^  posed    chief   of   the   fire    department.  These   bickerings   and   jealousies   and  backbitings  can  only  have one  result,  that is, the total demoralization of the  city's business.   The electors of Nelson  have a duty   to perform   in   January.  That duty is the election of a mayor and  six aldermen who will, not allow their  personal prejudices to govern them7 in  their relations with the subordinate officials of the city. -.7When these oflicials  are found lo be competent and attentive   to   the   duties   which   they   are  paid to perform, they slnuld be retained  in office.    Thoso who arc .neither competent nor attentive should be summarily dismissed.   Thomas Lillie was not  dismissed from thc fire department because he. was cither incompetent .or in-  cttenUve.    He was neither.    He was a  good fireman and he had the confidence  of the men under him.    His dismissal  by mayor Fletcher and aldermen Selous  and  Paterson and  Gillett wiJl  not  be  looked on by fair-minded people as a  reflection  on  either his  ability or  his  honesty, for these four men have ceased  to be fair-minded.   ��� .      ��� ���  The   Liberal   party   in   this   province  is as badly in need of a brainy leader  as is the Dunsmuir government, which  is said to be holding on to UUce by the  skin of its teeth.   The executive of the  party   mot   in   Vancouvi-r   lately,  aud  their   actions   clearly  prove   they  are  afraid of the rank   and   file.    When a  party is tco   cowcrdly   to   plac.i  confidence in the men who ao the voting, it  cannot be successful if given the power  it seeks. ��� There are thousands of Libel ��'Is   scattered - throughout   Kootenay  and Ya.le who are true to the party on  election days, but who, apparently, are  to be denied a v^ice in selecting delegates to,attend a party .convention.   The  icastn for this is plain.   The leaders of  the party at Victoria and Vancouver are  afraid of thc rank and file.   They know  that if the rank and file, if given a fair  chance, would send them all to the rear,  for there is no or.o of them either popular cr sufficiently aide to lead a party  to victory.    Above all, they are afraid  of the man who luided the Liberal party  in office at Ottawa.   They are .afraid of  him because he   has   mat  which   they  have not got, ability to lead.   They are  afraid of him  because  they know that  if the choice of leadership was left to  the men who vote he would be chosen  with so great a majority that they would  be discredited at Ottawa.   The Bodwells  and the: Peterses and the. Daviscs are  able lawyers, but they are not able politicians, and no one of them is a great  enough lawyer to hf>. a. statesman.      - -  TO OUR CUSTOMERS:  Owing to our large losses on collections  during tho past year and determining to  treat all.alilce hereafter, wc have instructed  our drivers to allow no credit on and after  January 1st, 1!)02.

Greek  independence was won by bandits inured to fighting and marches, not by  townsmen. The Greek national costume today���the resplendent uniform  worn by the king's crack regiments of  "Buzones"���is that of the Albanian brigand. Macedonia spasmodically hopes  to be redeemed from Islam* as was  Greece. In a country where poverty is  the sole safeguard against plunder the  brigand is the only hero, and he is the  only dandy. He comes into the semi-  weelcly market, where the women chatter over their wares, or strides through  a railroad car, known by everybody,  with his snow-white fustanella standing out about him like a ballet dancer's  skirt, his heavily tasseled cap, his. embroidered tunic, stiff with gleaming  metal, twirling his fierce mustachios.

A  great many handsome presents were dis-'  tributed -to the children resident "at the  mine.  . .The Cooks' and Waiters' Union at a special meeting on tho 21st instant decided to  reduce the dues to members earning below  512 per week lo 50 cents per month. Owing  to the good financial condition of the union  it will be able to disburse benefits to'members who arc sick and in need. Preparations were also made for the forthcoming  annual meeting at which officers will be  electedfor the coming term.  Tho question as to who will be the noxt  mayor of Slocan is said to turn very largely upon whether or not the 31 property  owners whoso names were stricken off the  voters' list by mayor York are put on by  his honor judge Forin. If these names go  on a prominent politician of the lake town  says mayor York will be given a lively race  for re-election. The friends of alderman  Dradshaw are urging him to make the race.  They say he could win hands down in any  event, but, so far he has not given his admirers any encouragement.  m  m  m  m  m  (IV  fly  ��*  i ~ --j -^ -j '.j, 'j ��� js ��� JS, -m Jg ^5* "Mr My ^B1 -^tr ^B^^g  ..-*.tmi.^"^'^'^i.^'iS'^S>'Sl'ia"^Si-i��'i^-_S'^",  'J7i'i!t':9S'm!iS;iX-^SfiSi-i!i'Stf^-^i'nf'iti i  H.

The second payment'on the Camborne  group, situated at the outskirts of the  new town of Goldfields on Fish creek, was  made by the Northwestern Development  Syndicate, of which A. F. Rosenberger is  the secrctarj' and manager.  The returns on the 20 ton shipment of  ore from tho Spotted Horse proporty did  not como up to the expectations of the  owners, being something under ?22 to the  ton. Against this there/is a treatment rate  of ?9 and a! transport rate of $4. Although  the ore did not run as high as expected  it is evident thatin.the Spotted Horse the  owners have a very valuable gold property,  Tt. A. Winerals yesterday received a telegram from colonel Evans notifying him  that major Leckie had been authorized to  secure a few packers In Nelson. This  means that tho project of a pack transport hns been discarded, as not more than  half a dozen na.ckors were enlisted at Rossland and Nelson combined. Just what thc  idea ot the commanding officer is in taking  half a dozen packers east it is difficult to  understand, but the score of men who volunteered'their services for this work mav  take it that they are not wanted.
