In 181)4 the colonies were separated

panee to the lower end of the course
held its load of animated humanity,
eager to see the .sport and to applaud the victors. Victoria avenue
never presented so UVely a scene or
had so many people massed upon it
as was congregated yesterday al
half past, live o'clock. Dr. Higglns
acted as starter, and it was ft fine
sight to see the Craubrook boys

which tliey were wilb every muscle
set, every nerve at a tingle awaiting
ihe crack of a pistol which .sent them
away like "llie wind. The start was
so quick, every man springing forward like a thoroughbred, that almost at the first leap the hose man

ihey ran down the street at a ten

the rubber tire of I be cart wheel and
ihiugs got mixed in such a way as
lo bring down one of the gallant
racers, and the cart flew by tbe

the connection This very unfortunate accident lost this gallant team
the race and everybody including
iheir plucky antagonists, thc Moyie
boys, were sorry for them. The
Muyie learn then lined un and presented lhe same beautiful sight of
eager, well trained racing machines
wiili taut nerves and corded muscles
crouching like so many tigers ready

Again the doctor fired his pistol

A honil ot sympathy should, ami in
must, iitsiaiurs does conneol mother
ami daughter. What i.s more natural than that a young girl should
seek her mother's sympathy ami advice when trouble comes. Mother's
voice lias been music to her ear since
memory (Irsl dawned; ber band has
rocked the cradle, rested upon her
heart as she lisped her first prayer,
ami smoothed her pillow during the
weary hour of sickness. She can be
trusted and into her ear Is poured
the secret that no one else may
know, Whether it he an offer of
marriage or an intimation of
broken vow, molher will know best
how to advise. She is the sheet
anchor, the harbor, tilie refuge to
every child. Her constancy is not
to be shaken, her love cannot be
chilled. Krom the cradle to tlie
grave, she is the ministering angel,
the first to reward, the last lo condemn, the one that never deserts.
She i.s indeed a rainbow of promise,
one end bathed in the sunshine of the
morning of life, the oiher lost ia the
.shadows nf the grave.
If Christianity may be said to have
given a permanent elevation to
women, as an intellectual and moral
being, it is as true that the present
age, above all others, has given play
lo her genius, and taught us to reverence i l s inlluence. 11 was t lit-
fashion of other times to treat the
literary acquirements of the sex as
starched pedantry or vain pretension;
to stigmatise them as Inconsistent
with those domestic affections and
virtues which constitute ihe charm
of society.
These things have, in a great
measure passed away. The prejudices, which dishonored the sex.
nave yielded to the influence of
truth. ' Hy slow Wit sure advances,
education has extended itself through
all ranks of (ornate society. There
is no longer any dread, lest the culture of science Bhould foster that
masculine boldness or restless independence, which alarms by ils sallies,
or wounds by its Inconsistencies, We
have seen that here, as everywhere
else knowledge is favorable to human
virtue and human happiness; that thp
refinement ol literature adds lustre
to Hie devotion of piety, Uiat true
learning like true taste, is modest
ami unostentatious; lhat grace of
manners receives a higher polish from
the discipline of Ihe schools; ihal
cnliiiaied genius sheds a cheering
light over domestic duties, and its
very sparkles, like those of the diamond, attest at once its power and

After Ihe secession of 177U Ihere
were no longer any British colonial

the rise ol the Australian colonies
that there was any occasion again

Mon uf tbe new Hags. Tims under
tlie "Colonial Defence Act" the vessels of war main i am nl by ihe Australian colonics were authorized by
the lord commissioners of lho admiralty in Itftrj to carry the Hrilish blue

The city council met last evening
wit li Mayor Rogers and A Idernicn
Ryan, Jackson, Tisdale and Fink
prest n t. The room was a lit Uc
warm and there was a disposition
to hurry matters, but notwithstanding the wish of all the members to
get through as quickly as possible,
it wns after eleven o'clock before
tliey adjourned.
One of the most important subjects brought up was lhe plans for
Uric new public building, for which
ihe |H»ple of Cranbrook voted half
Of lhe cost, some $0,000. It seems
ihat' at the first rough plans were
prepared under the supervision of
Government Agent Armstrong, .lodge
Wilson and City Solicitor Thompson. These were taken lo the coast
and the department were fully informed in an intelligent manner by
Mayor Rogers as to what was wanted and expected by the city. In due
course of time, and it was a long
lime, loo, plans were sent h.-re which
stiowod thai all the suggestions made
by the (.'ranbrook people were absolutely ignored. Anolher attempt
was made l-broug.) the chief com mi s-
sioiiel to gel a change but as yet
wilhoul success.     A   telegram     was
dered sent hy the council asking
permission for certain changes in the
plans si/bject to the approval nf the
government agent. It is yet tn be
seen whal effeel ibis will have on the
government. In the diseiunion of
this matter Alderman Fink said F.iat
he Wanted to kick on- the plans submitted by the government. lie did
not believe thai the government had
treated t-he town right as, they had
ignored the town altogether in the
preparation of the plans.
Alderman Ityan eame out Oat fooled as is characteristic of thai 'gi'nlIonian, and said that for one be would
refuse t-o build lhe building unless the
town had a proper show. |(e did
not think thai .the council bad a
right to spend the people's money
unless Wicy were able to give lbe
people the right kind of a building,
and he would oppose anv other move.

Tha periodic alarm about ' the
Americanization of W'ihni|Kg has
ciopped up again, this time apropos
ot the horrible fact that, 'some United
Staters are actually organizing a
Kour Hi of July celebration. Why
this should attract so much attention it is rather difficult to tell.
Thc American in Canada, who decides to throw in his lot as a citizen
wiih his new country, is very likely
to retain some of the observances of
his own former country even after
giving up his allegiance to it, and no
such observance is mote tenacious
than tliat of Independence Day. Iti
is, a habit rather than a political
creed, and why pessimistic Canadians should object tu h S firing off
crackers in honor of so admirable a
character as George Washington, antl
in- accordance with the habit of
years, is passing comprehension.

Whatever may be the merits or demerits nf socialism, Mr. Hawthornthwaite as its advocate was not believed In by lhe audience that listened to him in Fernie. His genuineness was very seriously questioned
and he left the platform after a Inud
boast that no one in Hrilish Colum.
bia dare take the platform with him,
entirely discredited by a working
man, llie chairman of the day's proceedings, Mr. W. M. Dicken, lhe president of the Miners' union. And
tlte curious feature of it is that tliu
discrediting was done by lhe moro
asking of Mr. ITawlhoriilhwaflc of
several very ugly questions about his
own public career, whio'.i he answered
by silence,
The applause Ihal greeted the
questions when pul by Mr. Dicken
showed that there was little sym
Uathy in the great crowd of mflieis
for the socialist, orator, n was iti
strong contrast with the ineagic applause his Speech evoked. This is
partly to be accounted fm by run
son of Ills attack of patriotism
which formed the theme of both thu
previous speakers. Mr. Hawthorn-
thwallo declared that patriotism was
nothing in  lhe  working man.   ll was
■July first, Canada's natal day, the
great crowd of people were celebrating ihe day and by courtesy permitted him to Introduce a political
discussion quite out of place at a
miners' picnic. Everywhere the
British and Canadian Hags bore
I'csiimony to t'.ie loyally aud devotion
of the people to their country, and
yet the speaker had not onlv the bad
taste but tho effrontery to proclaim
to them that love of country" was
hothlqg io ihc working nun.

there are qualities of other goods.
