Till! CANADIAN ANACONDA.
There id trouble in jlanitobs. There
is no balm in Ottawa to cure it The
Dominion invites settler", but the set
tlers wont railway outlets for their
surplus produce, anil the Dominion
having abdicated its powers in favor
of a great corporation, cannot re
spond to tho demand of the Bottlers
and the corporation positively refuses
to do so. The settlers threaten im
migration to the United States, and
are even talking about revolution and
secession, unless the Ottawa authori
ties shall constrain the corporation
anaconda of their creation to relax
ill crashing coils. This is about the
situatien: The distance from "Winni
peg, the oapital of Manitoba, is 2509
xnile3 from the mouth of the St Law
rence, mhree-fifths of this distance
Js traversed by the anaconda's rail
way, and the company insists that all
the surplus produce of "the great
lone land" shall be bhipped by this
long railroad route. But to ship it so
win leave no profit to the producers,
who are naturally desirous of a short
route to the sea and tho ship. Na
ture has supplied this shorter route
by 'Tray of. Nelson's xiver and Hud
son's bay. They have learned from
the little volume publbhed by "W.
Frarer Eea three years ago, and from
divers other sources, that l,for two
centuries the Hudson's Bay Company
sent their stores into what is now the
Canadian far west and took their furs
out in sailing ships, which plied be
tween England and the bay." They
understand that a railroad 370 miles
long a third of tho distance from St.
Xjouis to New York and not rnori4
than a fifth of the distance from "Win
nipeg to Montreal would conneotj .

business, and the anaconda refuses to

son's bay because its future profits
tfie in compelling the settlers in "the
great lone land" to use the longer
route by way of tho St. Lawrence. It
is by no means sure that tho Domi
nion government could grant the re
quest even if it had not given away
the power to do so, for tho provinces
on the St Lawrence have a very large
majority in both houses of the parlia
ment and have an interest in thus
harnessng"Manitoba to tho corpora
tion. It is inconceivable why the gov
ernment should have endowed the
railway as it did, but upon the assump
tion that it "wanted to make the cor
. poration -an all-powerful ally in this
business of enriching Ontario and
Quebec at the expense of the great
northwest and to relieve itself of re
sponsibility. Wo have made some
stunning grants in favor of transcon
tinental railway companies, but none
like this one. First, the Dominion
government gave the anaconda 712
roiles of railway already built and
in operation. " This was esti
mated to be worth 28,000,000. Nest
at gave 25,000,000, to bo paid
by installments, to aid the com
pany in the construction of 2,000
miles of road. In addition to "this it
gave them 25,000,000 acres of land,
valued at 81 per acre, but really worth
".$5. At the lowest valuation the land
gift is equal to 825,000,000; at the five
dollar average it ia worth $125,000,
000, and a good deal of it has been
sold in large blocks at from 2 50 to
$4 per acre. The actual gifts at the
company's estimate of value amount
to $78,000,000, and at a fair estimate
-3178,000,000. And still they are not
satisfied, but aro asking guaranties
for further credits. All their railway
property, including depots and roll
ing stock, and all their land grants
are exempt forever from taxation,
general and Ideal, and the terms of
the contract permit them to select
their land anywhere they may see fit
over an area almost as large as that
raLaU tke United States Foreign
landlordism they encourage. The
large sales have all so far been to the
English aristocracy, who never intend
to live in tho country. All these
Shines combined have deeply incensed
iSwpeoplo of Manitoba, who discover
that they nave been praoticaiiy nand
ecTtover by the Dominion to the gov
ernment of a heartless and grasping
corporation and that no power short
of revolution or emigration can help
them out of the difficulty.

"John Muir, general manager of the
Oregon Improvement Company, will
leave St Paul to-day for Portland.
3lTjv Muir has been east, in consulta
.fionwith the general officers of his
company. Tho most important mat
ter requiring his attontion wras the
negotiations ponding between his
company and the Northern Pacific re
garding some valuable Washington
Territory and Oregon coal lauds; but
of these negotiations, or anything else
pertaining to the oompany which he
represents, Mr. Muir would not talk.
Speaking of the extreme western
country generally, Mr. Muir said
everything -was at present extremely
dull The towns of Portland, Seattle
and Tacoma, as well as the whole Pa
cific coast, were suffering greatly from
dull times. The boom "whioh has ex
isted in tho towns mentioned has died
out, and as a consequenco tho rever
sion has brought with it a stagnation
of business. This stato of affairs is
likely to continue for some time, and
anrfil Portland, Seattle and Tacoma
"have-resumed the even tenor of their
way, business will not recuperate.
While in New York Mr. Muir had
frequent consultations with Henrv
Ward. The ex-king of tho North-
- rn Pacific is Jiving, quietly at his

in which ie now resides. This place
was intended for his summer resi
dence, and had his original inten
tions been carried out, -would have
surpassed in beauty and elegance any
like residence on the Hudson. In
the work of fitting up the place,
Mr. Tillard devoted much attention,

The several drives leading to

'Last fall," said Sir. Muir, "I paid
mv first visit to Bong's ferry. Then
Iut. Villard had fully fifty en at
work on these roads. He was accus
tomed to watch them working almost
daily, and apparently derived much
conifort from his peregrinations
among tho men. He was asked one
day why he had such a large number
of men at work on the roads alone.
and replied : Oh, it gives them work, j
and mo ploasuro to seo them work. "

that it was a $1,000 bill, and return

posed he got it from. The man
denied giving him any bill, and, as
no ownor could be found, ho turned
it over to the railroad, which deposit
ed it in a Hariford bank, and some
four ears afterward gave it to Mc
Kinnoy. I often hear people say that all bus
iness is overdone, and that there is
no room for a poor young man in any
of the large cities. Gaze dear friends,
upon Mr. Ferdinand Ward, and take
heart He came to New York in 1878,
a rough-shod, horny-handed, awk

poor clergyman in Genesee, New
York, and tne son was not unused to
menial labor. To-day the attention
of the commercial world ib on Mr.
Ward. In ten years and six months
the country clodhopper has grown to
set the styles for "rapid New York.
He has "lived" enough for ten men.
