Word  was received in town a few
days ago of the death at the Uli Men's
Home, Kamloops, of William Herein
one of the real old timers of British
Columbia. "Old Bill," as he has been
known fur some )ears past, was 73
year» of age. He was one of the first
engaged in tho steamboat business on
th« Fraser river, and during the
Cariboo gold excitement he was one of
the pioneers. There-were times in his
cmcer when Bill could sign his cbcipie
for a few ll unwind dollars luit a
generous, big-bearteii fellow as he always was, he could not keep money
while any uf his friends—mil they
were legion -were in want, Bill nu-ver

band did—Ills bounty was iinosteutnti-
nus For years lie noted as waifengei
al Victoria, but one big "dupe * dual
by whiah he was tu pockol $5,000, induced him to resign. He the* acted
as porter at the Oriental Hotel, a
position he held for many years. Bill
was always a "sport," and filthy lucre
in tho shape of coin had m> charms fur
him, except in the spending thereof.
Some eight years ago he moved up to
Nelson, and took the jauiturah ip uf al

As he adyuueed in years and grew
feeble he wns obliged tu give up many
uf his engagements and was ultimately
obliged to accept a cut in the Old

In the local legislature yesterday
the debate on the estimates was begun
the opposition distinguishing themselves as faultfinders,
Two or three interesting announcements were made by the premier during tho afternoon. One was that the
government has at least completed its
bill relating tu mineral taxation The
contents of the bill were not disclosed
as the first minister said he wanted it
to go before the mining committer.
Another announcement from the
premier was that night sittings would
be held next week. This, suggestion
was opposed by Oliver, un the ground
that it would interfere with the work
if committees.
A promise was made by the premier
that the idea would be abandoned if
such proved to be the case.
McBride's bill to "remove doubt as
to thu validity of the election uf the
member for J.illooet" was rend a first
lime but the opposition would not permit it to advance another stage.
McDonald, the member affected,
states iu an interview that he was el-
eoted by acclamation on September
19th, and that be accepted a cheque
for his services as road boss for the remainder of that month. He did su
on the advice of the government agent,
whu advised him that there cuuld be
no objection tu hi» doing so as. long as
lie had nut been swum in us a member.
Although he continued tu discharge
ois duties Us mad boss for llie nCxi
two months, he did not accept pay
for it.

that the society was organized to coin-

INTIMATES for the ensuing year
V^ have been submitted in the
Local Legislature, and it is pleasing to
find that the wants of the newly .created electoral district of Ymir have been
duly recognin.ed and provided for.
Ymir gels 8H000 for roads, trails and
bridges, and an extra $2000 for a
bridge over the Salmon Hiver at Ymir.
Tho amount secured by our locu]
representative; Mr Ilirry Wright, is
hut a trille lower than was asked for
at a public meeting convened for the
purpose, shortly before the legislature
met. At this meeting Dell Smith
moved that $2,000 be asked for, tu
build a suitable bridge over the Salmon liiver, and strengtbened his
motion by showing   that   the   revenue
, from at the ulber side uf the
stream would justify the expenditure
Tho   motion   was   opposed   by "mine.
'owner" Paddy Daly. Poddy had
evidently been "towld " tu oppose any-
thin" and everything that Dell   would
fs ■ - , J o .       f
propose, and with due subserviency ,b0
obeyed orders, irrespective of con
sequences, Needless to say tho re
solution was carried. We have time
and again called attention tu the
iliiilgernus Condition of tlio Ymir
bridge, und the loss that would accrue
fo tho town as well »s to the public
exchequer were tlieMvrotulted structure
to he   swept away by   Hoods.     It   has
, had already several harrow escapes,
and will probably go this spring except .something be dune in the interval
; Iu prevent, such a calamity. However
wo have a business government] in
power  iu British   Columbia   now, and
, a representative whuwill see to it that
his district is properly provided for.
In Ihe mal 1er of appropriations Ymir
fairly heads the list, and yet we urn
not gelling all we are entitled to, con,
sideling the contributions from the
district lo the public exchequer.
[Tmier a better finiinulifl condition we
would get all we are entitled tu, but
the big majority. of the people, who
supported Harry Wright, are satisfied
that Ihe, an,mint appropriated is all
that cuuld be reasonably .expected
under existing circumstances 1,'n-
fortunately, a couple uf the appropria
lions risked fur at the public meeting
alluded to wen- for private ronds Iu
private mini's ; but llie 'government
engineer' will  be ai'ouiul, and draw the
• line between ' put »ale iniuiopuly and
public Utility:' It is tn be hoped that
ihn money appropriated fur the Ymir
district— piii'tioii'i'irly thtj slim set
iiparl   fur   tbe.Yiuir   bridge—will   be
. li-i'il at mice, so. that the ad vantages
limy be pi ml icul Iv appreciublii at lint

o touch tjieir pockets, i It • brings
.'elhws of this class lo their senses  in
line cases out of ten.       Wo are uboul
0 apply the cure in this camp; Tin
Ollicial Gazette, published under goy
•ruinent auspices at Victoria, contains
ipplications for crown grants in the
Ymir district, of which nobody but
the applicants are supposed tu know
myth ing—and for reasons which
itliers know as well as they. To
ibtain a crown grant for a claim, the
iiitiing reuorder must bo satisfied (ac
lording to the wording of tho Mineral
•Vet chap. ,1-1, sec. 30,. sub. soc. ■)) that
ibe applicant,  has :
'Inserted a copy of such notice in
r.lic. British Columbia Gazette and in
i-newspaper l'um.lsiiKtiand
UU ill the division in which the claim
s situated, Or in the absence of such
Local paper, in the one nearest therein," etc. • ■- '■
Al least four of the applicants for
irnrfn g-iinU in-the Ymir district have
not »implied with tlio law in this par-
icular, and these four applications we
lave been advised tu protest, by the
ii-st legal authorities in the province.
vVe »hull certainly adopt .the advice
uid put these fellows tu tho expense
if advertising over   again   ur acknow-
1 'ilging some crooki'dne.-s.       The spite
hi the part of two of the parties alluded
11 is probably due lu the fact that we
nail ihe temerity to cut tboili off our
list as delinquent subscribers. In the
other instances tiie sting carries a
political virus. The spirit of the Act
clearly is that those living in the district, in which the cruwn grant is applied fur should know thai such uppli
cation is being made. The LOCAL
papers in which these applications arc
advertised are nut i'.hi.isiikii or ciu-
'ixcitin:; scene in the house. Let it
sause the exciting scene. Lynch fought
igainst his.own countrymen in the
iioer War, and sneak that lie is, sought
;.he protection uf Britain when he
aune back from, France, whither ho
;led in his cowardice. Traitors of the
Lynch typo deservo nri compassion, In

One uf the must ominous features of
the depression which is settling over
the Australian Commonwealth is the
rapid dépopulation of that country, In
the past couple of years the exodus
from the island continent hns assumed
alarming pro) ni tions, and the emigrants are almost invariably from those
classes of society on which the prosperity of tho community chiefly depends. It is a significant fact that
the decrease in the growth of popu-
1 itiou is coincident with the extension
of those Socialistic principles which
have attracted so much attention to
Australia. In the thirity years pro
eeeding 1891 the population had increased by 800,000. Since then the
growth has been only about 5,000. It
has actually decreased in the past year
or two. In Victoria where labor leg-
islation has made the greatest advan-1
eos, the loss of population has been
1'25 000 in a decade. In the past six
months 16,000 persons have left New
South Wales, and a recent issue of the
Australian Globe says that the entire
outward-bound passenger accomodation
of steamship lines in secured months
in advance. Nu wonder this paper
expresses alarm at the situation. Commenting nn the subject it says:—
"Well may it be said that these
facts afford a scathing commentary on
the Sucialistie labor policy of tho ex
isting State Government. Here is a
country whnse industrial institutions
are run solely in the interests of the
worker, whose politicians leave no
stone unturned to meet his every demand, in which of all countries of the
world it might be thought that labor
has found its Elysium, and yet the
workingman, as well as hi.' employer,
finds that he cannot make a living in
The ex Australians are «aid to be
"mostly of a class born or long settled
jn the country, tradesmen and muster
erat tsinun, sheep raisers, and farmers."

others gu tu South Afrioa, and many

At tho last meeting   uf the Law
Society uf British   Columbia, held    in
Victoria un  January  8th,   Frank L.
Christie, a barrister and solicitor uf the
supreme eourt uf British   Columbia,
was disbarred from practice as a  barrister, and struck off the roll of solici
tors.     The   complaints   against   Mr.
Christie were  laid by George H. Ed
wards   and Herman Clever, both    of
the Kootenay district, and were to the
effect, that Christie hid acted fur them
in certain  legal matters  and had   col
lected   mofrey, which he should   have
paid over.    However   the money   was
never paid,   and though it   had been
asked for repeatedly, is still said to be
dne.    Letters  and  documents in   the
original matters were  attached tu the
affidavits with which   the   complaints |
were suppnrted.    Though < 'hristio was
advised of tho charges against him, he
did nul appear at the   meeting uf   the
benchers called tu consider them
The  resolution of disbarment   was ;
passed by the benchers and ordered to I

At   the   Conservative    convention
held   at   Kamloops  on  Thursday,  M
Hurrill of Grand   Forks, was chosen as
candidate at the forthcoming dominion
There were eighty nine delegates
present, one delegato being allnwed fur
each twenty votes cast at the provincial
elections. The tutal voting strength
including proxies was three hundred
and nine.
Ex-premier Semlin was chairman of

The first ballot, resulted in Shatford
receiving 144 votes ; Hurrill 110, and

mous on motion of Shatford, seconded
by Robinson.
Barrister L P. Duff is now being
spoken of as liberal candidate for Victoria. John Macuiillan has already
announced hie candidature and intends
to stay in the field. George Biley, the
sitting member , may want renomioa-
tion, and in that event he is pretty
sure to get it. Ex-mayor McCandlesa
is a favorite with many liberals, but
hin biisinoHS engagements will not pert
not of Ilia entering dominion polities.   \
At the meeting of the Mackenzie
Liberal Club, held the other night in
Prospect Hall, Toronto, Stapleton Cal
decott spoke un the policy of Joseph
Chambi rlnin, and put in a vary strung
plea against the present protective sys'
tem of taxation, saying that it was
not the government that was taxing
the country, hut rather tho manufacturers, who were making the poor farmer pay 20 and 30 per "cent, taxes on
his machinery, and instead of this tax
going to the government, it went into
the hands of a select few. "It is a remarkable fact," said Mr. Caldecott,
"that the manufacturers uf this conn-
Iry aie all rich men as a class, but
still when spoken tu about free trade
they iaise a row just because thoy
w.uld nut be able tu make a prufit
from the tax which the government
wuuld place un importations. They
turn around and sing "God Save the
King" with as much fervor as ihe must
ot us, and still they can du this thing
I don t call this luyality; rather it is
loynlity of the "lip tu   mouth''  kind '
Never in the hottest days of Aui/ust
have there been so many dug-bite cases
in hospitals as during thu last throe
weeks in Now York, Thirty six casts
have been treated. Lack of warmth
and tho difficulty of obtaining food,
when .oven refuse is frozen, has driven
stray dogs tu a condition uf wolfish
irritability similar to that produced by
the heat of mid summer. Several of
the mure dangerously injuieil ure still
in the hospital.
The rumor of the death of the pope
which was circulât>d in Madrid, liai*
ing come to tho cars of the pontiff, his
holiueas exclaimed to a friend: ' What
already? Ixio was loft in peace for five
yours after his election, while with me
these rumors have begun at only the
end of a few months. It maybe a
good thing to look at this from a sup»
erstitious standpoint, but I am nut inclined that way and think it may even
prolong my life."

sister uf Sir William Van Home, died

Wonderful   Growth  of  the  Hail  Order   Business  of The  Robert  .Simpson
Company, Limited, Toronto.
Toronto has long been noted an the
c|ty of Ann stores. With hsr miles of
beautiful residential streets, lier avenues of tree», splendid lake fro-|t,
unequnlled street car service and her
great department stores, such as that
o' the Ttnbert Simpson Company, her
citizens pn«se*s advantages few other
allies can boast.
The Arm, en Mr. Simpson'« death.
In 1897, became a limited company,
und no modern phenomenon of the
business world, so far a« Toronto is
concerned, has occasioned more remark than the growth of the business
of the Robert Slmiwon Company.
Large though thé building In nnd'ndd-
ed to from time to time es It has been,
The Hobert Simpson Company building stands In the most prominent position In .he city, vis., the southwest
corner nf Queen nnd Tons« Stri.-rl»,
where, sltiinled In the very centre of
Ihe city, It has long hnon nno of the
most familiar land-marks of the town.
As u specimen of modern store architecture, It stands supreme In Canada.
II extends from Queen Street on ih<-
north clonr throtiuh the block to Rlcfh-
mond (street on the south, with n long
series of magnificent frnnl window»
on Queen, Ynnge nnd lllchinond
Ptreets. Cnutitlng tho basement, the
store numbers seven selling floors,
each   of whloh   would   provide
Room for a Regiments Drill
On these seven floors, In twenty-
three distinct departments, practically
»very-thing needed In'dally life, mnv
be bought for. the lowost economical
price for which a »tore oan sell It.
Experienced, enterprising "buyers"
are scouring the world nearly six
months of the year securing the mont
suitable merchandise where It Is produced bent and cheapest. Quantity Is
no drawback. The bigger quantity
bought, the lowej>*h'e price. If the
good« are right' the Robert Simpson
Company cannot take too much ,of
them,       (
The bUkSMsl now known as the Robert Si;iiiwiin Company Limited, wns
established away back In 1873, by the
late Mr. Robert Simpson. An unequalled judge of dress goods and silks, nls
store soon acquired a reputation for
dress fabrics second to none In Canada, and that reputation has been one
of the store's most valued and most
carefully trensured assets ever since.
Soon Tonge Street rivalled King Street
In Its attractiveness for the ladles of
Toronto, and when after tho great fire
In 18%. the new building wns erected.
Tonge Street was Indisputably master
pf tho situation, To-day the tide of
retail business flows fullest right at
the corner of Queen and Tonge Streets,
•o less than four blocks north of where

ago to accommodate the weiilthof mér-
clionillse which comprise! Hie Roben
Simpson   Company's   "forward"   stock.
