Signlficent Words.
The Rt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain,
secretary of state for the colonies,
made an Important speech on puhlic
affairs at Birmingham on tbe 16th Inst.
Mr. Chamberlain, afler depreciating
the constant assertions in certain quarters tbat. Lord Salisbury was "discredited" and lhe government "weak
anil vacillating," suid: "If foreign
countries lielieve and act upon lliese
statements they will lind themselves
much mistaken and thut courteous
diplomacy and graceful concessions nre
tint, In compatible with a firm maintenance of llie country's honor lllld
inleresls."
Then, declaring Ihal he intended to
made a "plain statement of fuels, unfettered by ilu* mysteries and reticence
of diplomacy nf Imlf a century agn,
which without revealing secret negotiations, should be iiinlersliind of the
people." Mr. Ohnmlierlalii -n'nl he
would accept the judgment of ibe
people us willingly as I lin lot'llie wisest
diplomiil in llie world.
l'efci'i'lng In the policy nfslrlrl isnlu-
tinn thut England has pursued since
the Crimean war, he remarked that
lliis hud lieen "perfectly justifiable"
nnd iidileil: "The time has arrived when
Great Britain may be coiifiouted by a
enttiliiiiiitinn nf puwers and our first
duty therefore Is to draw ull purls of
the empire inin close unity und our
next to maintain lbe bonds of permanent unlly wiili nur kinsmen across the
Atlantic,"  (Lnmi cheeis),
"There is a powerful nnd generous
nation,'' said Jlr. Cliumhcrltiin, "using
■•nt- language, bred nf our nice and
having inleresls identical with ours, I
would go so far as lossy ihul, terrible
ns wnr inay be, even war Ilself would
lie cheaply pni'clniseil if in a greal and
noble cause Ihe stars nnd stripes and
lbe union jack should wave together
over an Anlo-Saxon alliance, (Prolonged cheers).
' It. is one of the mosl satisfactory results of Lord Salisbury's policy ihal at
flu* present time lliese two great
tuitions understand each nlhei belter
than lhey have ev r dune since
over a eenl ury ago, when Ibey were
separated by a blunder of the llriiish
goveriiinenl."
Mr. Chamberlain proceeded to draw
n gloomy picture of Ihe situation iu
China, "where we have to count with
Russia, as In Afglianlslan, except that
we dn not possess an army or a defensive frontier in China anil cannot
therefore injure Russia wilhoul un
ally. The fate of the whole Chinese
empire is Involved nnd otu Interest are
no enormous thul no more vital question
was ever presented for decision tn the
Biiiish nation and a llriiish governuienl, Unless the fate ol China is tu
he decided withottl England's vnlcnwo
musl not reject tho Idea nf an alliance
with those puwers whose inleresls ure
imilar lo ours."
All ibe leading London journals
took occasion lo comment upon tin*
speech, uml llie Standard, applauding
Jlr. Chamberlain's aland, suys:
"Therels not tin" uuiilest riiisonlnstip.
pnse tbut. Ilis ciinviciinnsarejnnl shared
by every member of ilu* cabinet, They
Itnd l n anticipated liy innsl men who
have tried to look below ilie surface of
current diplomacy, and lhe special
quality which lie hat imparled to the
declaraiimi was lbe emphasis uf concentrated and unadulterated truth.
We nre liable nl uny niomenl to be
confronted bv a combination of all the
European powers, Tin* contingency
should uul be dismissed us Impossible
merely because ll would lie starllngly
unpleasant,
"Already we have endeavored witli
nn small success to draw all parts of
our vast empire togelher in the firm
Intention lo co*operate for the common
defense ; nor can it be said Ilinl there
Is anything lacking in our feeling of
regard and friendship for lbe great
kindred community on the other side
nf tin* Atlantic," THE ADVANCE

Mr, Gladstone.lhe great English slaies-
man and scholar. Kor soon' Iiuu* be
lind been slnuiy sinking nnil llieiefnri'
his death was expected. Tlml Ilis
death was peaceful nnd unallentb'il
with pain did mil, however, detrnel
fnnn the greal grief of lhe nation
which now mourns his loss. As soon
as Ihe news uf his deal b becunie
generally known every oilier topic
in Cheat. Brllalu dropped oul of sight
before the passing' of Mr. Gladstone,
In two places, perhaps, wns lbe I elision
most keen and heartfelt—the hnuse uf
commons and Iliiwiiiilen. Jusl before
fhe house roseon the lillh a telegram
frnni Herbert Gladstone reached Lord
Staiib-y announcing thai his I'm hei- wns
sinking. Already before bis deal It lbe
hush of grief seemed in fall over lhe
scene of his triumphs, mul from the
present men turned in tlie past, recalling sayings mill doings. A greul
lion lay dying, his nld colleagues', his
one-time enemies and followers watching his lasl long liglil wilh bis last nml
implucable foe, as they watched in pasl
days Ilis fight against lues whom he
had overcome, He was yielding slowly
Inch hy inch, li wus generally believed
at .St. Slnveiis's that his dying was lull
the si'ipn'l In Ihul greal scene wil-
nessed four years tigo, when liis lasl
speech spoken, he quitted the house
without, one wunl of spoken advice,
Anticipating llie inevitable, ilia
members of the governuienl discussed
the appropriate precetlnre tu I h-
Served and resolved llnil no efforl mi
their part,should he wauling lo mink
a suitable sense of llieir loss. Disregarding recttnl preci'ilenls, il was de
cided lhat the programme iu piiilia-
ment shiiulil be lhe same as ihal
adopted in the case of lie Hurl of
Chatham mul uf the yum gei Pill,
namely, an address to Her Majesty
praying for u funeral at. the public
charge and a niotiumenl creeled al
VVesliniuslei' abbey,
As it was tlle topic of llie hour In
Great Britain su ahrnud ibe evidences
uf sympathy were aluiusl. us universal,
M, Faille, president of France, daily
inquired antl regularly received every
bulletin, The press of Belgium, France
Italy and Greece, in spontetieous outbursts, recalled how many oppressed
people during Mr. Gladstone's Iif" have
offered hymns of praise fur bis Inter
Venl ion in llieir behalf; while in .Madrid even, llle prospeel of ins death
caused n 21-limiis' suspension of war
animosity against England.
Not the least poinl in lliis tribute In
Mr. Gladslone was iis profound unanimity,
Bow eventful has been lhe life jusl
closed, can he gleaned from a -Imu
biography which shows thai -Mc. Gladstone wns born in Liverpool, December
211, 1803, He wns llie son of u ii,!i

inenl has been steadily losing ground,
bul it is nnl. so certain llml the conservative opposition's gain ihis session
has been proportionate!!! the government's Inss.
Sir Mackenzie Howell and the Senale
have carried oil'llie honors of the si*s-

todlsglisl every Independent observer

miserable subserviency tn tlie interests
which dictated a rejection of the Kettle

LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Judgp Spinks came in from Grand
Forts yesterday, and passed nn north
to-day.
Mr. Haokey of Vancouver, is a visitor In this distriet, having come in
from Peutictnu oo Wednesday last.
A silling uf the Licensing Court for
the districl uill he held at lhe Cnurl
House Midway, on Wednesday, Iiiih
of ,1 une nexl.
Mrs, U.S. Cayley nf Grand Km ks,
passed through town Lo-day on her
way to Vernon lo tliere pay a visit
tu parents and friends,
C. A. It. Lamlily, 8. M„ and Gnld
Commissioner for the disirici. came
over from Osoyoos on Wednesday lust,
uud after attending to some official
business returned home un Friiluy.
The Revd. Mr. Wilson, of Vernon,
and lhe Kevd. Mr. Ganiiignf liiissluiul,
passed through town nu Thursday lust,
These gentlemen jue paying lie* district a visit in connection with mission
woi k.
Mrs, 0. A. It. Lamhly, of Osoyoos,
nud Miss Allison ul' Princeton, are
visitors in town. Mrs. Lamhly is inlying Mrs. Dowiling Iiei mother a visit,
and expects to he in town fur ahout
two weeks.
11 is gleaned that the recently vacated pnsiiinu of Superintendent of
Ronds, iniiile sn hy the resignation of
Mr. L. V. Ciippngc, has iieeu filled hy
the appointment nf Mr, J, A. Schubert,
fiii'inerlv of Vernon nod mure recenlly
of Fairview.
Mr. I'l, P. Davidson of Kamloops,
paid Midway a visit during llle week.
As wilh all (iihers thoroughly acquainted wilh ihis district Mr, David-
sun feels Ihnt the government acted
shamefully when they tacked Boundary
Creek nn the Rosslaud ruling iu the
creation of new electoral districts.
Negotiations are proceeding between
a committee nf Greenwood men appointed for tlie purpose and the Nelson
and Vernon Telephone company respecting tlie extension lu Greenwood
of tlie telephone line which tin* coin-
puny has announced its intention to
build lo Grand Furks.
A party of C, P, H, officials consisting of Messrs, J.H.Sussmiiu, mining expert, D. W. Moore ore buyer for tin*
Trail smelter, and 11. ii. McDonald,
freight ngenl nl, Nelson, visited .Miiiway last .Sal.ui'iluy. Messrs. Sussinan
antl Moore went up tiilhclirucc before
returning to Greenwood.
After spending a pleasant holiday
heie, Mr. S. Rickards left for Vancouver ou Tuesdny lust. Uel'nre leaving Mr. Uickiirds expressed himself us
holding In the view lhat, ihis dlslrlcl
liasti greal fiiltice before it unit also
t.lnit lhe peuple nf the ciiusl have su far
failed tu appreciate lhe advantages
that wuuld accrue frum n, closer business reliiliun.slii|i lietwcen lllc two sec-
linns.
Mr. Thos. G. Earl, of Lytton, who is
a member of tlie Board of Horticulture
nod is Inspector I'nr this district, came
in this morning, nn liis periodical tour
of inspection. He visited Golden,
Northport, nnd Grand Forks on his
way iu. This afternoon in company
with Mr. W. H. Norris he paid a visit
to tlie hitter's newly-planted orchard.
He was much pleased with what be
saw and expressed the opinion tliat
witli irrigation fruit growing should
pay well here.
Another appropriation of $1,200 is
made hy the government toward the
repair of the Mission creek dam near
Okanagan Mission. Several such appropriations have been made, nnd the
pity is that the governuienl would nm
donate a sufficient ainounl tn Insures
permanent wnrk being constructed, in
stead nf dribbling oul sums of money
annually, of an amount just sufficient
to curry Ihe work to a point ut which
a few dollars more spent wuuld ensure
a good and lasting job heing done in
connection wilh tbe dam above referred
to. Those fairly COIIipeleUt In judge
claim that lo prevent tlie overflow of
the creek, and tlie consequent destruction of property, attention should he
paid nnd money spent in clearing out
the bed nf the creek.
