It Is expected to report to the next session of the legislature when the question of continuing the commission under further temporary appointment, or of adopting a permanent plan of government, or private, or joint oper- ation, will come up. Working out of. such plans will involve several prob- lems that go back to the early history of the road. Built By Reid The railway, one of the few narrow- guage lines remaining in North Amer- ica, originally was built for the col- ony by Sir Robert Reid, of Montreal. Until the commission took It over, the road was operated by the Reid-New- foimdland Company, in which sons the builder'are now the active spirits, under a 50-year leaae. Aft payment, the company choae mall subsidies and land grants in preference to cash, the land being regarded as of high poten- tial value became of timber and mineral Of the 9M miles of narrow-gauge line, travel on which adventurous at times, 546 miles run across the is- land from St. John's, on the east coast, to a terminal at Port aux Basques on the Aveat.

The Yukon rush gare 'Edmonton its first start. The rush to the Mackenzie should go far to give this city a per- manence and prestige In amongst the great cities of the continent. Norman, is the name of the Hudson's Bay Co. post on the Mackenzie at the junction of Bear river, the outlet of Great Bear lake.

The Nelson is navi- gable for boats or scows from the Forks, 50 miles above the south from Fort Nelson.

The Liarrt breaks early, and the volume of water is so groat that it breaks open the Mackenzie from Simpson northward, in the lat- ter part ot" May, while the Mackenzie above Simpson and Great Slave lake are still solid. The Nelson opens as early as the Liard. so that it would er from below the Chutes to Fitzger- i be possible for boats or scows to leave aid!

As a result their pay will be increased by about in the coming year. Five weeks were elected by the government as u period as part of the recent coat strike settlement: Tbe miners were told that it they produced between and tons In a year of 50 weeks they would get an extra three shill- ings and sixpence a day (ribrmally equlvalent to about 87 cents) from January 3, 1821, and that when their output reached tons they would get four shillings nominally about a dollar a day, extra. At their latest rate, they are pro- ducing at the rate of tons a year; just under tho four shillings mark. In 191H, Britain's coal output was tons, but during the var this figure was reduced by over tons. Householders are beirg told that the increast- in miners' -will in- evitably ralise retail prices, becauso the government relied in continued biB scllirc prices for coal to inert ail'.rce in Now, however, America has come into the market and, according to the Coal Owners' Association, French, Italian and South American consumers will refuse to continue paying the high British rates. This assertion is, however, flatly contradicted by an authority in the laborite Daily Herald, who holds that there is no likelihood of export coal prices falling, and that apparently the consumer is about to be fleeced in ord- er to keep up mine profits.

They do what is claimed for them. Dodd's Kidney Pills are purely a Kidney remedy. They tone up and strengthen weak Kidneys and put them in condition to do their full work of straining the impurities out of the blood. Strong healthy Kidneys are absolutely necessary it the blood is to be kept pure and the body healthy.

The winter journey io Norman is not to be' lightly undertaken by any- one under any circumstances. The only reason that would warrant its being made is the late opening of Great Slave lakft on steamboat route from McMurray.
