'i"he report cortuinly coirtnins iiioio foots than ore usually louml in ncxysijuper statoments of lli,at klird. I think it must be the re.'iult of observations that have bt^en n-.adc liy parties that have traveltal ly tluoug'h Western (ynnnda from fho I'acific Coast, 'i'hey have noted the dinureivt liitea j under '.�onstruelion in llritish t'oUun-iliia aird eastward, nn3 have put two and two together with approximately correct residt." The (Ircnt Xor.thern has not, in spite of nil rumors to the contrary, tiie slisiitest jiilerost in or connection wi'th t'he Canaadian Northoiii. I The new transcontinental line of jthe Great Xorthei-n will be finished j a year or more sooner than the jtirand Trunk Pacific is liuiU throug-h to tho Coast. Our line includes only -some 800 or 000 miles tihat ar-e still to be constructed west of Winnii>eg. The (Jrand 'J'runlc I'ueific has -done ni>thiiig there yet. It 'has been stivt ed � that the Ciraird 1'runk Pacific must take four or five years to complete its line, but \lje could finish ours wi.thin' two, or, at any rate, three years fronr now. It IB conjecttirud by those who are familiar with the coivdiLions north of the boundary that from now ot� a merry war will lie waged for supremacy in the railroad building in Western Canatla. Mr. Hill has long barent in order that the .s-crvicc mnj-ho as thorough as possible, that a' way must 'bo securetl. For the pixis-ent it is '))cUe\cd in some ch-clcs that the Great Xorlhcrn will use the Canadian Northern line from Winnipeg to Fort Arthur, and thus gain ac-ces,s to the grout lakes. In view of the fact, however, that the Great Northern is' proseeuting tlic new transcontinental project alone, and is strictly independent of the Canadian Northern in now propositions, tliis theory'is 'not generally accepted. .Anotlier feasible jn-oposition that fias been iwlvanced is fhat the line from UiiJbiiig: to tn'ternational Falls or Koochiching, which is ifnder contemplation, will form the first link for a Irne botwoen Winnipeg and Du-luth. The Great Northern has a lino in operation between Hibbdng, which is about (itty miles north of l)uluth, and an e.vtension from Jnteriiational Falls, which is almost touching tho Tnterna't'ional boundary lino, is regarded as practicable. If this plan whoiiki be fftllowed, it will follow the primary principle ol tran-sportn-tion, 'that commodities follow the closest route to the water. It is apparent that since the Groat Northern will enfei- a competitive field with the Canadian Norlihern ami the Canadian Pacific, that there is no joint action in any of tho,, projects.. The biggest portion of �the i)ro>ecti, ed �transcpnlincntal lino now under construction is in UritTsh Columbia, from Vancouver to Midway. As soon OS. the line is built on liho western end. it will bo practi^alljr smooth sailing to build across the prairies of\,^AIbertu, or any portion of the western provinces through which tho Great^Northern will decide to enter Vancouver, April 7.-That the Ca-naiMnn Northern Hallway will not build west of F.dmonton, and that this railway will find ' its Pacific outlet at Vancouver by means of Hill extensions through Brrtisn Columbia the liockics into Kdmojiton, is iwdicatod by recent evonis yn railway circles'-on this Const.  Many 'thiiygs now jiorint to the ultimate connection of the V. \\, y. railway at Fort George by an extension across the mountains to Edmonton. The V. W. & 'V. company is i|uletly making preparations to buiUl north from this city toward Fort George. A connection with Edmonton would place the Canadian Northern in a position to reach'X'an-couver ami Seattle over tho ilill system without -the necessity of building the liiwj through to tho Coast. It is a wcUrknown fact that tho Oanndiuu Northern and the Hill in--terests arc co-oporating in alt western Oanadinn cxtcnKjpns, and that bolh ore nlignod against the Oanadi-an Jif^ific Hnilwny, whoso interests cla.'I west rond that will make con-nertion through Il�>gitya on tho oast. The aggrossion of iTto Groat Northern in U'eulcrn Canada Is prompting Gross hilts. It will eventually be continued to Urowniug, in the Utack-.'eet country, aivd will tap the oil ami coal section of Southwestern Alberta. IMnns are that the Soo western o.x-lension Khali pass into the Stale iil Wnshinston, where it will likely link up with the C. i'. il. line . from Vnhk. on the-Crow's Nest lij'ie, to .S|>(>kaiK?, and n 'bi-anch will puss ihroueh Washington along i'ts northern boundary to 'th� Coast and into the heart of the Givat Northern ter-ritor.\-.

TRTni;TE TO SENATOR DE VEllER {Raymond Chronicle.) The Senator was in Raymond last lo^eck, not as is usuol with some sqhtttors. for the purpose of repaif-iiig his political fences, but to look after the completion of �omo public works undertaken while he was the member for tho district, Honors seem to set lightly: on tho Senator's brond shoulders, and promotion deprives him of none of his denio-cracy. Ifu tjilked practically but modestly of tho distinction conferinxl upon him in being selected to reply to the speech from tlio Throne. One of the eastern papers referred to his speech ns bbing "breezy" and to t'ho point. The point is what the Sonntor makes frtr, and-he has made a fioint with his one-'time constituents in going straig'Itt to the matter in hand along tho line of \public imi^rovcments. This district, bo it understood, is in excellent shape qs to highways, bridges, etc., and whoever the Senator's successor may be, ho will find a high mark set for services rendered which he will have to "go home" to reach. The honorable gentleman expects to rotuni to Ottawa in time to bo in his seat when thu Senate shall resume its lalrbrs immediately after Easter. The only consolation we have in the loss tho road nt �tiu; hour of nomination. Voting by ballot for supervisors is .cl.s� provitled for. A motion to provide that non-resitlcnis of n local improvement district should, not'hold odico-wns struck out. It wa.s point-'cd out that so long as tho candidate livcxl in tho division, jiiis interest, in tho district WHS nmply satiJguardod, so far as the dLsHrict tvas concerned. Thf Vi. C.

R. live stock agent, Itas retiirned from an inspection of the range country. He was east as far as .Swift Current, through the Medicine Hat district, and west over tho Crow's Nest Pass to Cranbrook. "The range stock_ has wintered cx-ccoJingly well." remarked Mr. McMullon, and t'he losses have been less than for many seasons. This is, of course, due to the mild weather. The range cuttle in the country cast of McKlicine Hat are, however, in much 'better coriidi'tion than thoas further west. I expect Swift Current and Maple Creek to begin shipping range stull by the latter part of Junti, while further west it will bo a month later.. "Tlic ffd cattle, of course, will move sooner in the Calgary dis'trict, but the range stock will be a month behind. This is duo to the heavy snowstorm and exceedingly!  severe cold snap of Novcntbor. The snow was very much heavier west of Medicine Hat than cast. The range from Calgary south was dry ot that time, and the cattle sulTere
