WHO COMES NEXT. With the death of Sir John Mac donald the foremost personality in dominion politics has gone over to the great majority, and the leadership of the conservative party is vacant. That no one can fill the empty place is matter of universal recognition. It is not alone that Sir John as a statesman was a loader of pro-eminent ability, marvelous tact and great personal magnetism. There is more than that in the dilliculty which confronts the conservative party. It may almhnost be said that it never was the policy of the late premier to sur round himself with men of outstanding eminence. In later years, it can be as sorted without the shadow of a doubt that he brooked no rivals near the throne. The premier was the "star" of his political company, and the members of his cabinet were men of only average ability. There is the dead wall that bars the aggressive advance of conserv ative policy at the present moment. The party has plenty of good men, but it will take more than a good man or an average man to pick up the lines as they dropped from the hand of Sir John and guide his party and his policy to victory. Still some one must attempt the task, must do his best to rattle around in the vacant place, and rumor is already busy with the prospects of the favorites in the political race. Sir Hector Langevin is, we should imagine, out of the running, and his chances must be set down at long odds. His conduct while minister of public works under the late administration is just at present a subject of investiga by a parliamentary committee. The charges of corruption made against him are supported by a number of his own party, and it one-half of them can be made good, Boss Tweed will have found & dangerous rival, the cabinet have lost a minister, and even the penitentiary have found an inmate. It is true that in Ottawa kalsomining operations are not unknown, and the minister's booty could pay for a very artistic coat of whitewash, but the secretary of state sees the opportunity of wresting from a rival the leadership of the French con servatives, and he is not likely to let the chance escape him. Sir hector could not hold the party together. As a Quebec man and the brother of the bishop, his leadership would simply invite the hostility of the orange and ultra-protestant sections of his political color. Sir Charles Tupper is a strong man, but' it is very questionable whether as a leader he would care to re-enter the po litical struggle. Even if he did, he would have to reckon with his personal unpopularity in Ontario andl the uncom promising antagonism of the (grand Trunk railway. Senator Abbott's is an other name that is seriously mentioned, but his reputation is purely local, and his experience of leadership practically nil. All in all, we are inclined to be lieve that the governor general will call on Sir John ''Thompsun, minister of jus tice in the recent adlninistration, to make the attempt of fornming a cabinet. lie has much in his favor. His probity is as undoubted as his talents. As a de bater he ranks with the bost. But Can ada is an extensive country, and em braces within its bounds imany conflict - ing interests and racial and religirus prejudices. Sir John is a Ronman Cath- ole. That is ani element of st reuigt.l and at the same time an clement of weakness. In the political arena, he is practically a new-comer, and his rep utation, great in his own province of Nova Scotia, is far from reaching a na tional niche. rl'l. . ..... ..........4;..... . ..~ ' ... ;.1 ~ Thie conservsativo-i nr.odl an aill-rounl mnian for tihir leadtir, andI they have not got hIn.

Nelson Minor: That the Esler company means business is evidenced by the fact within twenty-four hours after his arrival at Nelson Mr. Esler had twenty men at work on the Dandy. 'Ibis force will be in creased as soon as A boarding house can be erected, the present cabins being too small to accommodate more men. Mr. Estor has also got control of the Ollie, the first west erly extension of the D)andy, by purchasing E. S. Tolping's interest. Referring to another property recently purchased by Montana men, the same paper says: On Tuesday work was resumed on the Skyline, under the superintendence of Scott McDonald. Three shifts are em ployed, and a cross-out is being run from the bottom of the shaft to tap tbh ledge. This force will not only soon be increased, but men will be put to work on the Krao and other claims owned by the McCune company. It is reported that that company will have 150 men on its pay-roll within sixty days. i . t iritllth, general agent of the Unit ed Smelting and Refining company, of Hel ena and Great Falls, is now in the Kootenay country looking for business for his oorn p any. As to the rates and other matters p ertaining to ore shipments, the Miner san ys: 'lhe Canadian Pacific has made a rate of $14.50 a ton on ore shipped from Nelson to Great Falls, Mont., a rate of $11.:)0 on ore shipped from Nelson to Ta coma, Wash., and a rate of $6.50 on ore shipped from Nelson to~ the smelter at RIevelstoke. This rate will enable claim owners to ship lead ore at a profit of $15 a ton, providing the ore carries forty ounces of silver to the ton and runs over 50 per cent. lead. As long as there is only a difference of three-quarters of a cent in the price of pig load at Now York as comIpared with the Price at Montreal, the Aumerican smelters can pay the duty on lead ore and outbid the local smelters, because of the greater capacity of their works. While the duty of a cent and a half a pound on the load contained in the ore mlakes away with a pretty largo percent go of the tital value of the ore, yet claim owners can still ship ore at a fair margin of profit, for the rea son that the bulk of the shipping ore in Hot Springs district carries considerably more than forty ounces of silver to the ton. The lllg Or. A release of the liens heretofore filed on the Big Ox mine by various parties for labor and material furnished, was filed in the county clerk's office yesterday.

A Board of Trade Committee to Set Forth Helena's Advantages at Toronto. The Board of Trade committee of ten appointed to take action with reference to inviting the National Teachers' association to meet in Helena in July, 1i92, held a meeting yesterday to hear reports of the sub committees on finance and transporta tion appointed at a previous meeting. Col. Broaawater presided. Messrs. Brown and L. A. Walker, from the committeeon trans port ation,reported that Messrs. Edgarof the Northern Pacific, and Wilson, of the Union Pacific, had been in correspondence with the officers of their respective roads and that their lines would not only give the usual excursion rates to the teachers but would have representatives at Toronto next month to co-operate with a committee of Helena citizens in setting forth the attrac tions of the trip. Mr. Langley, of the Great Northern, also as snred the committee thpt his road would undoubtedly do the saane, as he had presented the matter to the general otfficers in St. Paul. Messrs. . D. W. Fisk, L. A. WYalker, It. Brown and Prof. Young, the finance committee, reported subscrittions to the fund for properly setting forth and advertising the advantages offered by Hel ena to the amount of $670. The committee was authorized to continue its efforts to so cure, if possible, double this amount, the sum subscribed being considered inade lquate to properly present Helena's case in competition with other cities that are in the field for tile next convention. On motion of L. A. Walker Messrs. Ly man:I, IBrown and Young were clhosen as a comunittee to go to Toronto ,nd lay before the association Helena's invitation to the teachers to visit this city next year. A MLi EM ENTS. Prefessor lHerrmann was greeted by a very large audience last evening and all were greatly delighted by his clever illu sioun. It was by all odds the finest enter tainment of the kind ever given in this city. 'l'here was an entire absence of the old prestidigatateur' chestnuts, and in place of those, llerruaiini gave a programme of features entirely new to tbelena. The first part, "Thirty minulto" with Herrmann," cunsistted of plearing sleight of hand per I formiances. The professor in addition to thec cletv r manipulations kept the nadience in excellent humor by his wit. "The Now illek Art," il wlich el was assisted by Abdul Khan anld .11Mi. Ilerrmann was a series of ibea:tiful illusions. Tile rear of the stage was black as E:,vpt and from those, recesses catle iiystt-ri'e s revelations in most satr irising fortls.
