The (lathering at the Residence of D. D. Ferguson
Tuesday Night a Delightful Affair.
Last Tuesday night the friends of
Mr. D. D. Ferguson, to the number of
between twenty-five and thirty, gathered
at his residence on east Third Avenue,
ou social pleasure bent, aud to say they
were not disappointed is to tell only half
of the truth. It was one of the most successful and pleasureable occasions of this
character which has taken place iu this
city for a long time. After nearly four
hours of games intermingled with social
con'versaion, ane listening to, the highly
skillful performances of Mr. K. W. Barton, on his violin, which was one of the
most delightful and entertaining features of the evening, the guests sat down
to an elegant and delicious luncheon, to
which they did ample justice, and which
was presided over by mine host Mr. D.
D. Ferguson. The party did not disperse
till 12 M., or after, all present expressing
themselves as heartily pleased with the
results of the event.
As near as can be remembered, the
following townspeople were present:
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. McDonald,

the whole being surrounded by substantial hen-proof fencing.
Thos.' Price, some time since appointed
road overseer in this district, and who

hour Law the Government will

the referendum will be applied and
a vote taken at the general election
as to whether the law shall be re-
repealed. If the law is sustained
by the vote it will be retained upon
tbe statute book with its penalty
clause. If modifications can be
made removing any of the friction
brought about, without impairing
the principle of the law, they will
be adopted. If the vote is against
it the law will be repealed. '
9. To restabliBh the London
Agency of British Columbia, and
to take every effective means of
bringing before the British public
the advantages of this Province, as
a place for the profitable investment of capital.
10. The retaining of the resources of the Province as an asset
for the benefit of the people, and
taking effective measures to prevent
the alienation of the public domain,

13. In connection with the con
struction of Government roads and
trails, to provide by the employment of competent civil engineers
and otherwise that the Government
money is expended upon some system which will be .".dvantageous to
the general public, so that the old
system of providing roads as a
specal favor to supporters of the
Government may be entirely discontinued.
14. To keep the ordinary annual
expenditure within the ordinary

Fraser river, connecting the coast

passenger arrangements, the Province will continue this line to the
eastern boundary of the Province.
Proper connection withuuch Kootenay railway to be given to the Island

be in cash, and not by way of a
land grant; and no such bonus to
be granted except upon the condition that a fair amount of the bonds
or shares of the company be transferred to the Province, and effective
means taken to give the Province
control of the freight and passenger
rates, and provision made against
such railway having any liabilities
against it except actual cost.
18. To take away from the
Lieutenant - Governor - in - Council,
any power to make substantive
changes in the law, confining the
jurisdiction entirely to matters of
detail in working out the laws enacted by the Legislature.
19. The establishment of an
institution within the Province for
the education of the Deaf and
20. To repeal the Alien Exclusion Act, as the reasons justifying
its enactment no longer obtain.

"If I had a donkey and it
wouldn't, go wouldn't I wallop it ?
No, no, no !" but then, I'm not a
freighter. If he has a cnyuse and
it won't draw, he larrups its hide
till it is raw; at least generally.
"I am willing to admit," an American writer says, "that mankind is
my brother, but ai the same time
must allow that I have somedooced
scaly relations," and about the
scaliest of all is he who gears up a
300-pound horse to a 3-ton wagon
and trusts to cursory remarks,
elhow grease and whipstocks to
make the trip on. 1 saw an evil-
looking yahoo yesterday driving a
four-horse team in such state as
would ensure him "twelve months
hard labor" in the old country.
They were as "bluggy as everyfing,"
and if, some day, under such circumstances, one of my cussed scaly
relations meet a retaliatory and i
retributive hoof, I'll buy up his
slayer, give him a free pass to
Thomas' stable and a gold medal
for insecticide.
The Rossland Industrial World,
f.ays C. P. R. smelter and railway
employes at Trail, are being car-
petted and informed that if they
do not vote right���that is against
Martin���their discharge is certain.'
If I were a C. P. R. employe and I
such characteristic coercion were!
applied to me, I would deliberately
promise any thing asked, and go
straight and plump for Martin out of
sheer cussedness, vote for him twice
if I pot the chance, and I don't love
Martin either. Does the C. P. R.
imagine that when it buys a. man's
services, it buys also his mind,
soul and body ? Possibly men of
the stamp that fought at Paarde-
burg and Mafeking are not so
easily bought as some politicians
and printers are, and the C. P. R.
may find it out some day.
battleship. Good, it sounds nice
just about election time. I know
the German fairly well, and he
doesn't take chances. Wilhelm
Kaiser, if he ever, as is likely,
acheives his ambition to have a
navy to match his army, will pull
the world by the ears as sure as
"himself und Godt ail dings gom-
mand." Wilhelm takes the place
formerly held by Mahomet, as fugleman of the Almighty, and 1
hope I am betraying no family secret when I relate what was the origin of his high opinion of himself.
He once, during my youthful days,
came in his casual, curious way to
examine and criticise the progress
of a Black Forest school and its
pupils. A natural history class
was progressing. The clown of the
community was to the fore. "Now,"
said his youthful highness, "there
are three classes, animal, vegetable
and mineral, to which do I ne-
long?" The schoolboy paused���Vegetable? No! Mineral? No!! Animal? No!!! Not blooming likely
with such a thing as punishment
for lese Majeste probable. The
youngster was, however, a born diplomat as well as a humorist.
"You, Sir," he replied, with hardly
a quiver in his limped blue eyes���
"belong to the Kingdom of Heaven"
���and the Emperor has believed it
ever since.
Baseball or Church is what is
troubling Grand Forks. "I won't
play in your yard" says the
parson, "I don't like you any
more," say the baseballers. "There
are three sexes, men, women and
clergymen" says the Gazette. "You
pays your money and you takes
your choice," says the general public, and I don't know myself
whether the hollering of a baseball
enthusiast, or the clang bang of
that relic of barbarism which calls
together Cattle and Christians, and
is yclept a bell, is the bigger nuisance.
We are hearing a great deal
II ^' lately of what might have happened had not Dewey received British support in Manila Bay. The
inference being that Germany was
quite ready and willing for a fight,
but for   the  omnipresent British
But once I saw him bite his lips
with temper, and those fierce full
eyes of his flash fire. It was a great
review day upon the Duke of Baden's estate in the Schwarzwald.
The Uhlans had surpassed themselves and came sweeping across the
open, like a well ordered and irresistible multicolored avalanche.
The Emperor acknowledged the salute with pride and gratification.
"Wunderschon" he ejaculated. He
sought ears in which to pour his
pleasure. I was at his stirrup, a
privileged spectator, and noting my
appearance he said in good English
"There, are they not matchless?"
"Splendid, your Majesty" I answered "only take care they never
run into our seventeenth lancers."
He scowled angrily, and an aide
de camp almost winked; then raising his head, he uttered one word
"Vorwarts" and with his staff vanished in a cloud of dust. A later
day, an old friend, the Minister of
war, who had heard of the incident
remarked to me: "My boy, if ever
I said half as much as that, I
would have to emigrate to Milwaukee."
"Vive les Boers" or showing his
gaul sichwise. He's a nice, consis-
tant kind of a Christian, the
Frenchman, especially the Parisian. I know Englishmen ought not
to take front seats at the opera, on
gala nights in bicycle costumes,
and that Fashoda was a bit of a
set back, but that does not excuse
a man for hollering out about
"liberte, egalite et fraternite," with
one breath, and "vive le Boer"' the
next. What, in the name of all that
is free, equal and brotherly can
Stead's brother Boer possibly represent in the Frenchman's absinthe
mind ? But I'd like to be at that
exposition all the same.
When the Frenchman isn't singing the Marseillaise, or making
love to his neighbor's wife, or ordering "encore un bock," or enjoying himself generally; he's usually
crying out "a bas les Anglais" and
The whole country is suffering
from political throes or words to
that effect. What I like about politicians is their purity of motive and
wholeBouled truth. In the Boundary country we have two gentlemen
each trying to show his politeness
by keeping the other out of a seat.
If all that each says of the other
be true, some of you voters are in
most ungodly company when you
attend political meetings. Personally I hdieve everything that's told
me; it saves trouble. Then I vote
as I please at the finish. Each man
says his platform is all mahogany,
and his opponent's all slabs,and
rotten at that. I helieve that, too.'
I once had a near squeak of getting
into parliament myself, and know
the tricks of the trade. It's worBe
than horse-stealing any day. But
joking apart, the way those two
meandering ministers or peripetetic
politicians, Smith Martin and Joe
Curtis, have trapezed through this
province building castles in the
air and railroads in the sky is
enough lo make a man die of envy
that he, too, was not created a
worker of miracles. F'rinstans, it
generally takes a smart enough
lawyer to run a coach and four
through an act of parliament, but
the man who reached the post of
attorney-general, says he can run a
freight train through an international agreement as easily as deliver writs. Also, surveys, estimates
and finances don't matter. Is it to
be promises now and performance
at leisure? talk today and taxation
to-morrow? Is the Hon. Mr. Martin
like Lowell's friend who did believe
in any plan o' levyin' the taxes
so long as like a lumberman he gets
just what he axes ? It well must
seem as if he does "believe in humbug generally, it is a thing he doth
perceive to have a solid vally, this
hath his faithful shepherd been, in
pastures green hath led him, and
it will keep the people green to feed
as they have fed him." I have not
yet quite made up my mind how
to look upon this tub thumping
trip of these topical tourists. It is
pathetic and it is tragic, it it sublime and it is ridiculous. There is
at times such brotherly sweetness
manifested, that I can only think!
of Helen's babies, Budge and Tod-1
dy, then the scene changes and
Faust and Mephistopheles seem to
hold the boards, whilst later on, being mindful of Curtis' unlimited
faith and trust in his leader, 1
think regretfully of that "young
Lady of Riga who went for a ride
on a tiger, they came back from
that ride, the Lady inside, and a
smile on the face of the tiger.
I'm fond of personal reminiscences too, and when the Premier goes
into the "memory of his past excesses," it's almost nicer than the
biography of a Salvation army recruit. I have somewhere read-
though, that drunkenness is no excuse in the eyes of the law, and
have a dependent notion that it is
also no excuse in the head of the
law, for, as Dr. Watts says, "Little
birds in their nests agree, and 'tis
a shameful sight, when Martins
getting on the spree, fall out and
chide and fight." Likewise I was
taught that "one swallow does not
make a Summer," but having seen
how one Martin may bring on "the
Winter of our discontent," can't
lilame voters if, when the political
horizon is lowering, and clouds appearing on every hand, they look
out for a good Mackintosh.
Ought I to risk my reputation in
a preliminary contribution in making a prophecy, I hardly know, but
it does not matter much any way.
Waterloo day comes on the 18th,
hut I believe the Premier, owing to
a ppecial dispensation of Providence, will get his on the 9th, and
that on the morrow of that great
day, he will wake up, and blinking
uneasily, mentally decipher the
words "Ichabod" on one wall of
his bed chamber; "Fallen jb thy
throne. 0, Israel" on the other.
That weirdly sweet German melody, "When the martins homeward
fly," may sound in his ears, to he
followed by the beautiful poem
(partly Moore's) set, strange to say,
to the "Martini" air :
To Deadman's isle In the wake of the blast,
To Deadman's isle he'll drift tiitht fast;
His sails with Mackintosh covers are furled,
He's lost the Province and dead to the World..
But any how, if I were a C. P. R.
employe I would vote for him
every time and all the time. He's
a fighter; you can't kill him, nor
change his destiny. He's a straight
forward kind of a creature who
blurts right out what's in his head,
and if he's one peculiar feature, it's
a nose that wont be led, and that's
a hard sort to beat.
At Denver, a demand for higher
wages from nearly all lines of
workmanship has been granted
peaceably. In the building trades
especially the demand for labor ia
so urgent that advances were granted readily and the cost of houses
raised proportionately.

How Long Will This Farcical   Imposition
Parties coming by stage into the
Boundary, should provide themselves at Bossburg with a health
certificate to avoid detention. Since
the outbreak of smallpox in Manitoba, the Dominion government
has taken the matter in hand, and
stationed officials at various points
ingress to the province, whose duty
it is to see that all incomers have
health certificates���all of which is
a hig farce and imposition.
Thieves and Thugs But No Police.
Last week a petition was sent in
to the powers that be, begging for
the appointment of a local Constable. Possibly those powers know
better than we do what a border
town needs. P'r'aps! p'r'aps not!
Any way, we just call their attention to the following: Owing to the
absence of any police protection,
no less than three burglaries took
place on Monday night and two
unoccupied houses were broken
into. Mr. Earle, of the sawmill was
robbed, the Rev. Mr. Barton of the
Manse had his house ransacked
and the English Store was entered
from the rear, its safe tried, its till
removed bodily, together with its
contents, and various articles of
value were stolen. A little over a
year ago when a similar event look
place at the Syndicate's store, three
men incidentally happened to get
shot. That's what may occur again
any day now, indeed apart from
burglary and in direct consequence
of the unprotected state of tbe town,
more "guns" are being exhibited
than are actually needed outside

since in a free scuffle, one happened
to crack a man's head with results
that were more picturesque than

it for it cannot burn you, even if it

It has been proved at Memphis
as a preventive of yellow fever-
also on the evidence of a German
Medical writer, that it has proved
a complete protection against cholera and other epidemic diseases���
also that those working the sulphur
mines of Italy, escape the malaria
which prevails all around them���
also that sulphur in the shoes has
cured various cases of rheumatism
���also sulphur taken internally or
worn in the shoes has sufficient
power to pass through the body,
the clothing and the pocket book,
blackening the silver there.
It is also a fact that on California ranches where walnuts are prepared for the market, the shells are
bleached by the use of brimstone
fumes, and that the men having
charge of that work, never have
the grippe, influenza or other epi
demics which attack  their fellow-

Put a half teaspoonful of powdered sulphur in each sock about
twice a week.

If You Wish
To keep thoroughly posted on the fast
moving events in the growing Boundary and Christina Lake sctions, there is
only one way to accomplish it, viz:
Just get in line, follow the
crowd and subscribe to ..
pe Cascade Record.
It costs only Two Dollars to get
in out of the wet, and receive 52
copies of the Record. Printed
on good paper with good type
and good ink.
Many persons who favor the
ownership of Canadian railways
by the Dominion government,
strongly object to provincial ownership on various grounds, and
there can be no doubt that the ownership of railways by the Dominion
as a whole, would be much better
for Canada than the ownership of
scattered lines by some of the provinces. It is probable, however, that
all who are now advocating provincial ownership, look upon that
scheme as a mere step in the direction of Dominion ownership, and
would be glad to see the matter become an issue at a Dominion election. It is probable, in fact, that
many advocates of government
ownership would place country before party, and temporarily discard
their party allegiance, if necessary,
in order to place men in power who
would carry out such a scheme.
This might not, however, be necessary, as, in Manitoba, the members
of both parties are unanimous in
desiring government ownership.
The newspapers of that province,
of every shade of political opinion,
are said to be in favor of government ownership of the railways of
the province, and it is possible that
the feeling which at present actuates the people of Manitoba, might
become general throughout Canada,
if the matter were clearly brought
before the people. It would be
much better to have the scheme
carried out by general consent than
to have it carried out by one political party, while the other endeavored to throw obstacles in the way
for party purposes. The general
mode of procedure in Canada and
other countries in which political
partisanship exists, is for the party
out of power to attack without
any discrimination, every measure
brought forward by the party in
power. Such a performance is very
silly and unworthy of men who
claim to be rational beings. A
measure is often brought forward
by the party in power which all
rational men know to be a good
measure. The leaders of the party
out of power can clearly see that
the carrying out of such a measure
will benefit the nation. They,
nevertheless, in order to make what
is known as "party capital," oppose
it bitterly, their conception of their
duty as representatives of the people being, not that they should support whatever they think would be
of benefit to the people, but that
they should get the other fellows
out of power by any means, fair or
foul. No respeet is due to men who
worship any political party to such
an extent as to vote for bad measures or bad men ai the dictation of
party managers or who oppose
good measures merely because they
are brought forward by a political
party to which they do not belong.
The blind worship of parties is as
degrading as the blind worship of
any other human and fallible institution, and it is to the honor of
the Liberals of Manitoba that they
are unanimously supporting the
Hon. Hugh John Macdonald in his
efforts to bring about the government ownership of railways.
. It is probable that all who favor
the provincial ownership of railways, favor it only as a temporary
scheme, which would be useful in
forcing the matter upon the attention of the people of all parts of the
Dominion. The people of Eastern
Canada are slow to move in the
matter of making political reforms,
and, if the people of Western Cana
da wish to bring about such a great
reform as the government ownership of railways, they  must bring
the matter forcibly before the attention of their fellow countrymen in
the East.   In  Dominion elections
the party platforms are manufactured in the East, and it would be
difficult for the people of the West
to get such a plank as government
ownership of railways inserted at
the present time.   They must agitate in order to bring about such a
result, and they can agitate best in
the mean time by supporting candidates who will do their best to
force the matter into   Dominion
politics. A united West would force
the people of Eastern Canada to
take the matter up and make it a
Dominion issue, and, if the people
of British Columbia show that they
are in favor of the government ownership of railways, there will  be a
united  West.    In  Manitoba, the
people of all the political parties
favor government ownership, and
all the newspapers advocate it. The
Northwest   Territories are full of
farmers who went to the Western
States years ago from Eastern Canada and  the Eastern States, and
who were driven out of the Western
Stales to a great extent by the rapacity    of   railway   corporations.
They do not want the same thing
to happen to them  in their new
homes, and there can be no doubt
they will favor government ownership to a man. If British Columbia
were to favor government ownership,   the West would present a
united front on the matter, and the
East would be forced to take action. It is not to be presumed, however, that the people of the East
are opposed to government ownership.   The matter' has never been
brought before   them,   and  they
have never given it any consideration. If it were brought before them
they might favor the scheme as
unanimously as the people of Manitoba.
Some persons aver that, if the
provinces were to build railways,
the Canadian Pacific company and
other existing corporations would
conspire to ruin them by refusing
them connections, or charging excessive rates for freuht transferred
to or from the government roads
from or to the roads of nich corporations. Such averments are ridiculous. The corporations would not
dare to attempt to trample on the
people of all Western Canada, if
they were united, and they will be
united, if they value their hearths
and homes. John Simpson.
