At the hist meeting of the literary society, Mrs. L B, VnuDeenr
had a paper on ■■Current Events,"
iu which she gave two discriptions
of countries in which people are
interested at this time, They wero
si. full of information that The
Herald prinls them for the benefit
nf the ptlbHc:
Manchuria, the laml the two nations are disputing over, lies between China nnd liussiu uml formerly lielonged tu China, luit has

to lenve Manchuria, but as time

meant to keep lu-r promise from
the. first, for having once entered
she has nn intention of lenving and
her only pretence for leaving was
to get a Strongi r hold nn the couniry. She is firmly established

TWO VIEWS.
What Liberals and Conservative* Think
nf the Session.
From iti.* wi..*,in Tim.-Ml.il* i
Premier McBride may call n
special session of ihe legislature
for thu purpose of unfolding to
view his railway policy. There
are so many schemes U'fore the
government, the demands of its
supporters are so diversified, thnt
it does not care to decide otVhand
which ofthe numerous enterprises
shall he favored, This is nn un-
fnrtuunte state uf affairs, truly. It
is specially unfortunate, because
the couniry hud been led to believe
by the Premier's criticism of the
railway policy of the federal government that he knew how to proceed nUuit the development of
Uritish Columbin and could mat
mil such a plan as would compel
the dominion to net.

The  provincial legislature was
prorogued   last   evening   hv    the
lii'iiti'tuiut (coveriior tHuu i***.*.»x!"h
to a close one of the   shortest   ses-
ions in the legislative history of
British Columbia. Yet the session's brevity does not imply thnt
hut little hus been accomplished,
s the list of over seventy lulls
assented to by his honor yesterday
clearly proves.
The feature by  which  the  tirst
session of this parliament  will   lit
hii'fly reuiemliered is that it was
the tirst at which the members of
the house were divided ou Federal
party lines. It will not lie disputed liy those who a re close observers
and not entirely influenced by
names, that this important change
in the organization ofthe legislature has caused some little stiffness
in the operation of the party
machinery,     In    some   respects
there   hus   lieen    evidence   of   the
unreality of the attitude assumed
on some occasions by one side of
the house or the other lo certain
matters under consideration. Nor
could tliis scarcely Ih* avoided,
since on many questions, those
who uow are on opposite sides of
the house were, less than a yeur
ago. working side by side and entirely agreed ou those same mutters. But there will be a change
iu tliis rcs])cct. Grndnnlly each
party will evolve a policy on different matters of provincial interest
and the debates will then assume
a more real and distinctive character than they have sometimes had
in the session now closed.
The most important legislation
ut this session was that relating to
the provincial finances, and the
plans adopted for their restoration
ton sound position. It was inevitable   that   some   unpopularity
hould witness a   grent  and  satis- Koads Necessary Now.

one that had the sagacity to realize | atihieiicv are more concerned about
the need of retrenchment mul
financial reform and the courage
to give effect to that view.
Possibly there will Im- some dissatisfaction felt in various parts of
tlie province at the session having
closed without nny steps being
taken lu aid the extension of the
railway system in British Columbia. The announcement made by
the premier on Tuesday last, and
ou which we commented yesterday,
should, however, allay any   feeling
of   dissntisfactii u  thnt   point.
The delay of three ur four months
in giving legislative sanction to the
aid proposed in In* granted to certain railway enterprises will nut
seriously interfere with tie
schemes, while it is clearly in th
public interest thnt the govern
meut should have ample time and
opportunity to cluliomte the details
of the arrangements that it will
submit to the house at a special
session iu May or •liine nest.
Notwithstanding all the op*

Why Smilh Left Home.

(>u this occasion the company will
present another of Mr. Geo,  H.
Broad hurst's ingenious farce comedies, entitled -Why Smith  Left
Home."    It is racy, fuu-poking at
the really serious servant girl problem, and in  addition   it   places au
interesting lot of   men anil women
in predicaments that excite honest
laughter and   roars   of  applause,
The story   of   -Why   Smith belt

tioii ofthe  newly  married Smiths
to pass their   honeymoon   at home
instead of   taking   the   usual  trip
abroad, of the disturbing arrival of
a domineering   relative,  and   then
ofthe coming of another pair of
newly married   ones, which is still
more inconvenient, and of the final
desperate resolve of the Smiths to
leave home in order to secure peace
and quiet,    It is a charming comedy, free from   vulgarity, clean and
tl not   wholesome.
