McKano, Scotchman and mining en- gineer, and formerly of Rossland- ,B. C., who invested of Charles M. Schwab's money in Ne- vada mines and cleaned up a mil- lion dollars for and gained more fame by paying to ride across one street in a hack, has gone hack to Scotland to live; and is a candidate for Parliament in the Dumfrieshire district, the old home of Andrew Carnegie. It was Carnegie who recommended McKann to Schwab as a mining en- gineer when the latter decided to invest in" the gold fields of Nevada. McKane who is known in San Fran, cisco, has written to friends here about his British political aspirations and as Carnegie's Scotch friends ar supporting him, he thinks he'has a good chance to become a member of Parliament from the Caledonian dis. trict, where he has taken up his resi- dence. McKane was one of the famous spenders at the Palace hotel before the fire, and the hotel bellboys of those days fondly remember the and tips he used to give them. He is probably the only Palace guost who hired a hack to drive north country by a minister of crown, but the people had been wait ing for some time for the visit. As was said iu the Cree address presented to Mr, dishing at Lessor Slave Lake: "For a long time we natives of this country have heard of a government at Edmonton, of men working for the "welfare of the coun- try and we Jbave been waiting for one of you to come." The hearty welcome with which the minister of public works was received at every point of settlement was evidenced in every available way.. The scattered settlers assembled at each post, were set flying and addresses of wul- come were delivered. "1 can only repeat that we have a magnificent country, in our north said Mr. Gushing to a Bulle- tin representative yesterday. The minister was then back again in his office, busied with some details of work requiring his but which he kindly "left aside to speak of the north country with an appre- ciation to which the business-like minister of public works is not rea dily stirred. "It is a magnificent country and should support a teeming population in a few decades. Jt "has an lent climate; and a' fertile -soil. It is well timbered, and has an abundan water supply. It would be hard to find a finer country anywhere. "Then are settlers scattered all through the ver and by tho end of this week hey should have .one repaired and he otlier probably The reason his road is not better is that for- merly it was merely a track through he forest, quite shaded by the trees, and of course the sun had no chance to dry up the roads. Our road work ers are cutting out a road allowance of sixty feet and grading it, and thu should be. a very good road, 'The department also has two crews of men ut work on the road between Athabasca Landing and Less er Slave Luke.
