The royal reception accorded to fjueen
Victoria by the citizens of Ireland—from
little children lo tottering uld age—must
he a source of great pleasure and satisfaction to every true and loyal subject of
tlie great British empire. The enthusiasm with which she has been received by
the Irish masses shows that, diplomatic'
ally approached, their hearts will always
be found lo he in the right place. Her
Majesty |is a better politician, nitd can
fathom linm an nature mote deeply than
any of her ministers.
Tlie Port Sleele Prospector contained
an editorial item last week alluding lo
tbe candidacy of Mr. Arch. Leitch for
membership in the Provincial house,
Our esteemed friend and neighbor ia in
error. Mr. Leitch had no petition out-
SQiiie of his friends hail, until be heard
of it—then it was withdrawn. The
Herald will say this, howevei: There is
no riding in British Columbia that would
have cause to be otherwise thau proud
of iheir member if tbey were fortunate enough lo secure Mr. Leitch ns
their representative.
Cranbrook's population is composed of
energetic, enterprising business men,
progressive and fully np wilh lhe times;
tlie working people, iu their sphere, are
not one whit behind thc business aud
professional men; a man who lias traveled much, especially in newly popttlat
ed regions will observe this condition of
affairs at a glance, needing no informs
tion on llie subject. This being the case
it is n source of wonderment to the Herald why so few of the residences—many
of them quite handsome—are uupainted
Iu addition to increasing the sightliness
of the buildings, it is a good business
proposition to paint a new building.
