Tlmt one   individual win   no
longer tnko possession of Midway nnd temporarily run it to
suit Iiis own ideas, was shown
one day last week, when a husky
employee of tlie Boundary Falls
Smelter, suffering slightly from
inclination, drove down to Midway and immediately sot. ahout,
displaying his pugilistic abilities
upon inoffensive citizens,   The
visitor made assaults upon two
people, and to demonstrate the
fact that  he was a   had man,
drew a knife; not the kind that
would impress one as being very
destructive, no matter how viciously   handled, hut more of the
order of the kind that is usually
swaped "uusight  and   unseen,
whole   blade   or    no    trade."
Nevertheless it was a knife and
judges, as a rule, are evidently
not authorities 011 knives. They
regard anyoldthingwitha blade
and handle a knife, and cinch a
man just as badly fordrnwinga
cheap weapon as though it hada
pearl handle, live blades and cost
several dollars.   About tho time
tho Knight of the smelter  was
getting in his fancy work on his
second victim, Provincial  Constable, V. L. Thomet, appeared
on the   scene,   simultaneously
with whicli the visitor ceased to
be the hero of the hour.    He
found that  constable   Thomet
was just a   little  harder  pro-
p<T-'itiim than he had expected
to run up against and so he left
for Boundary Falls a sader bul
a wiser man.
The following day the visitor
was made the recipient of a piece
of blue paper, which contained
an invitation to visit Stipendiary
Magistrate, McMynn, and toll
him how it all happened. This
ho did on Monday, and the
Magistrate paid his respects by
imposing a fine, which will
doubtless teach the smelter man
to be good in future.
This is the first duty Mr.
Thomet has heen called upon to
perform since acting as constable here, and the manner in
which he fulfilled it, is a sufficient guarantee of his ability to
keep law and order, lie is the
right man in tho right place
Whilst he is fearless and impartial in carrying out the
work assigned to him and
will maintain rigid order,
he is not over-officious, a fault
so prevalent among provincial policemen,
Heretofore there has boen too
much liberty taken in the town
by numbers of people, in the

Business and   Advertising.
There is an interesting parallel to  bo drawn between the
statements   ul'    lbe    business
agencies in whicli tbey say that
the year 1002 was the greatest
Business year the country has
ever known, and the statements
f the advertising agencies i.liat
tt greater amount 06 money was
spent iii advertising during 1902
than during  any   previous   12
months iu tlte History Ot advertising.    Advertising is the most
powerful  force that, can bo employed in the acquisition of trade
it, is the   battering   rain   that
;>ushes tlvough the solid wall
of   competition   and   launches
;oods in the place once occupied
by tho old competition, whoso
mistaken   notion    that   "long
years ol' bua;ne3s" and the '"reputation of the firm wero a suf-
j'ioieut safeguard against the onslaught  fo •  newer  but   more
progressive enterprise*.
Judicious    advertising    hay,
forced unknown goods into tho
lands of unwilling dealers and
created a demand with the consumer that no trade combination, price cutting or anything
dso could impair.    A business
iniilt upon this basis is strong,
'lighly satisfactory and   independent.
Old advertisers who have tast-
.1 the full strength of publicity
md known its value appreciate
iiest the possibilities of advertising and comprehend the  im -
.nensoaiid unlimited   scope   of
the field of operation.
Advertising is an absolutely

Thus the Victoria Colonist
speaks of the electors' mandate
and the basis upon which Colonel Prior was elected. When
did our present premier come
before the province for an endorsement of bis policy? Unless we ansiime that Victoria is
the whole province, which
assumption people beyond the
borders of the Island City, no
longer make, though, of course,
it is still law and gospel in Conservative circles of the most
Conservative-city of Canada.
The truth of the matter is
thut Colonel Prior succeeded
former premier Dunsmuir,
audit is altogether likely that
his present policy is in recognition of the basis upon wliieh he
succeeded to the premiership.
A large part of his address to
the electors of West Yale is de

which he previously stated
should have their termini at

yet Colonel Prior knows perfectly well that the majority of
tho people of the province
are opposed to this policy.
There was a redistribution Act
passed at the last session of the
house, which means, if it means
anything, that there is not a
fair representation of tbe people in the present legislature.
The last clause of that Act is to
the effect that it shall come into force when the present legislature is dissolved. Why does
the premier not ask fora dissolution of the legislature?
Because he feels in his bones
that the mandate of the people
would hurl bim from the premiership.
