Rag Ball.
Editor News: It may not be nut of
place in connection with the Rag Ball
lhat the Trustees of St Peters Church intend giving on the 2nd of May, to state
briefly the circumstancee under which
the debt lhey wish to pay off was incurred- The site for the church had been
given by Mr. W. Robbcnnditionally, and
lhat the title deed should be handed flyer on satisfactory proof that a building
to the value of $2,000 should be erected
upon it. Again the Synod promised $200
on condition thnt they should receive the
title deeds During the construction of
the church an order was sent lo Messrs
Muirhcad and Mann, Victoria to supply
doors, widows etc, to which they replied
expressing their unwillingness to supply,
ing thc goods except upon an order signed by the three trustees; this order, the
doors , etc being absolutely required to
complete the church, the trustcts signed,
thereby making themselves personally
responsible for thc payment amounting
to abnul$430.
There being no furds in hand upon
Messrs Muirhcad and Mann presenting
their account the tinstces endeavored to
obtain the title deeds to effect a mortgage but were met hy a refusal on the
part ofthe Svnod to surrender or to otherwise assist, they thereby securing the
church, a very cheap bargain, at tke expense of the trustees and possibly their
own credit. Upon the lailurc of the
trustees to meet Messrs M-and M's ac-
count the latter took legal proceedings,
and obtained judgement
Thus the matter stands. In justice to
Messrs Muirhead and Mann the trustees
would wish to express their gratitude to
them for the clemency they have displayed in enforcing their claim.
The trustees arc also glad to take this
opportunity to thank those ladies who
have kindly volunteered to sell tickets
for the Rag Ball.

The New Methodist Church  at Union   to  Almighty God.
The new Methodist church at Union,
just completed, is a handsome structure,
costing in the neighborhood of $5000.
Mr. Freeman, of San Francisco, brother of Mrs. F. D. Little, was the architect.
In design and finish it is simply a gem.
There may be many imre pretentious
church buildings in the Province; but
none which surpasses it for simple elegance nnd beauty. Looked at fr jm a
distance it makes a perfect picture. The
more it is studied the more harmonious
and perfect does it appear. The height
from floor to rafters seems small but the
roof continues the elevation in harmonious lines, and lower fits in to make the
whole complete. In the tower is the entrance hall, so arranged as not to interfere with the main audience room. The
heavy doors are finished in their natural
grain as indeed is all ofthe inside work
The inside of the roof is lifted up jrjst
high enough to -wive the letjuisite space,
without being "barny", producing a cozy
Last Sunday morning when we entered
the sun was streaming through the large
cathedral windows, while the decorations,
few and simple made a charming effect.
At the front and sides, at lhe foot of the
pulpit, was a bank of green plants, tessel-
ated witb yellow faced Hewers; and so a-
long at the foot of the railed platform
where the singers sat, ihe bank extended
���a line of beauty. In front of the pulpit
and clinging to it was a cross of vine and
flowers, with green border and white and
putple filling and golden star in the center��� the ensign of thc Christian religion.
The service commenced with a few introductory words by the Rev. Robson,
tke pastor, followed by the hymn commencing
"How pleaaant, how dovmitly fair
O'Lord of It est n, Hiy dwellings are"
Rev. Mr, Maitland offered a fervent
prayer, and read a lesson from 1 Chron,
chap. 6
For a second lesson, Rev. Mr. Robson
read from Hebrew 2 chap, 10th lo 19th
verses inclusive.
The beautiful rite ofthe baptism of infants was here administered 10 three chit
After the singing of hymn 674, came
the dedication sermon by the Rev. R. R.
Maitland of Nanaimo and formerly of
Vancouver. He took for his text thc
words "Blessed are the meek for they
shall inherit thc earth".
We have beard more than one discourse from the same text, but never one
on the same lines 01 that had so much
uplifting power, ll was a hopeful!, inspiring sermon. By the meek he understood to be meant the best: the best shall
enhcrit the earth. It wus not meant lhat
they should own the earth but control it.
He found in the evolution of thc last 1800
ye-irs that this prophesy was being gradually fulfilled. Merc physical force had
lost its glamour and now nothing shines
wilh so fine a light as goodness. He referred to thepagannationsthathave passed
away and declared that the nations that
rule today were the nations thai kiss the
cross. The best were gradually controlling the 'earth.
He closed with aoprec.ative and congratulatory words for both the pastor
and people, for the work they hail accom
plished, and the be-iutiful temple they
had built���an ornament to their town,
and what would be a credit to a much
larger place.
The 122nd psalm was then read, the
congregation reading every other line.
Then followed the formal dedication
and prayer.
At 2:30 the Rev. Mr. Higgins delivered a forcible and logical discourse. The
music was by his own choir and added
not a liltle to the interest ofthe occasion
In the evening the church was crowd*
ed to hear Rev. Mr. Maitland.
Wc have only space to add a word
that should not be left unspoken with rei
erenc to the pastor. Rev. Mr. Robson
came to Union nineteen months ago.
A'part of this time the mines were shut
down and thc future looked discouiaging
He has worked on trustingly, faifbfully,
and most effectively, accomplishing a
work that seems almost mar- ellnus when
all the circumstances are considered.
Oddfellows at  Church.
On next Sunday the members of Union
lodge, 1. O. G, F, will attend divine service at the new Methodist church at 3 pm
Rev. Mr. Robson will preach a special
sermon appropriate to the occasion.
Members of ihe lodge are requested to
assemble at their Lodge Room At 2:30
and march from there in a body to the
Visiting brethren cordially invited.

Freight Rates.
McPhee and Moore have been appointed agents at Comox for the steamer
Joan. The rule lhat freight must be
paid before goods arc removed will be
rigidly enforced. Neither can a part of
any consignment be removed until all is
paid for. Some persons have been very
lax about paying, taking advantage of
the Company's leniency. Thc rule to be
here enforced is really an old one,
reasonable in itself, and enforced elsewhere. The agents have no option in
Improved Horse-leg Fender.
The nature of this invention consists in

Health Hints to Farmers' Wives,
[Summary ofpapor rand by Mra. Virgin!
Harrington at a Farmers' Institute Mooting
That thero ia a monoy value to good
health no one will deny; least of all tho
farmer's wife. She.if any one knows, that
the laws upon which the products, not only
of tho farm but the commerce of the world
aro baaed,are thc laws of health and to her,
if any one, dollars anl cants have a definite
Thll is an age of high-sounding, mouth-
filling titles. Our doctor tells us wo have
gaslro-duodontal catarrh, when in reality
thore is nothing tho matter with us but a
rascally little biliousness. AU the time
the doctor is but feeling his way over the
slender path where our pocketbook lies.
Itia a valiant Una that dare eat his
breakfast on the lips of the linn. When I
aiatc lhe measure of good health to be lhe
resultant of, first, luose clothing; aecond,
ventilation, and so on ; my aistors may take
exceptions to tho first in that it carries a
hint with it of tight lacing. Iu the spirit
ef just discussion I wish to present" a pur-
foot w un in. nobly planned. ' This wo can
not bo if we are not in perfect accord with
the laws of nature and reason.
The veriest uovico in anatomy understands how by tight lacing almost every
important organ ia subjected to cramping
pressure, its fnuctioiiB interfered with. It
is to the laboring incapacity of a heart thus
imprisoned that, many of tbe diseases of

It ia a mistaken idea that ducks cannot
be raised without some body of water for
thom to sport in. Ducks have a natural
fondness for water, of course, and will take
to it whenever the opportunity is presented, hut tbey can bo successfully raited with
no more water than is required to drink.
This ia evidenced by the fact that thousands
upon thousands^are thus raised every year.
It has been proved that young ducks are
much leaa liable to disease when raised in
dry, warm quarters than when allowed to
run at large and spend much time in the
water.    A good way to add ducks to your
Sioultry flock  is to procure the eggs and
latch their under hens.
There ia one source of revenue from poultry keeping that is too often neglected. It
may be because it Is not generally known
that all kin Is of feithers are salable. The

be dry picked, and the feathers clean and
in good condition. Tho tail and quill
feathers should be packed separately from
those which arc softer. Separate the several kinds, nnd also separate thoao from
different kinds of poultry. The proceeds
from the feathers should repay the cost of
picking and all tha labor of preparing tho
fowls for market.
Tho Growth of Towns.
A census writer aays: ���"It is a fact, estimated by careful men thoroughly conversant with the changes that have taken
plaoe, that by the improvement in agnail
tural tools,(machinery) the average farmer
can, with sufficient horse power, do with
three men ihe work of fourteen men forty
years ago, and doit better." Thia fact
very largely accounts for the much com
plained ot growth of the cities at the
exp&nso ofthe rural districts. More is
produced and at tho expenditure of a leas
amount of human labor on tho farm, but
this fact causes more labor in the cities.
Tho agriaultural machinery ia made thoro
and in addition to that some of the manual
labour that used to be performed on the
farm is done in tha larger aggregations of
men to-day. Hence the relative decadence
of agricultural work ia not so great na it
may seom from a superficial study of census statistics. The crowding of people
from the country to the city may be more
marked now than it was in ancient timet,
but that simply is because it is favoured by
tha progress of civilization. It always has
boon the rule, and the city has been as large
as could be supported by the country around
or behind it. More than one of tlieEig*
lish king* haa tried to stop the growth of
London by proclamation or im.ro formal law.and some years beforo the Christian era it was complained that Rome was
overcrowded. So even in thi* respect
history ever ia repeating itaelf.
The Czar's Health.
Discussing the report that tha C/.ar,upon
medical ndvice, hat determined to make hia
permanent home in Kieif, a writer in the
London Spoctator tays; " The population
of Hussia, for nearly a generation, has been
slipping southward in search of oulturable
soil, and tho living forces of the empire are
now far nearer to Kieff and the Dnieper
than to the Neva and St. Putertburg. If
to these reasons tho argument of health ia
added, we can well bolieva that the Czar
haa decided on a permanent change of
residence, and if be ha*-, ho must alto have
looided on a permanent chango of capital.
He cannot live twenty yeara away from the
administrative centre. Tlio foreign ambassadors, the great departments, tho men who
govern Hussia, must attend tho sovereign ;
and if tliey attend him, they must, fcr convenience take, aa well ai for the suite of
their owu dignity, begin to build. Tnere
ia ample room on the Dnioper for a great
city, plonty of stonn procurable, aa the
ancient monuments attest, and a supply of
labour at least as abundant as that which
maintains- St. Petersburg. Thore is no historic projudice to bo offended, for Kieff la
far more nearly connected with KiHsian
hiatory than St. Petersburg - and no religious opposition to bo feared, for Kiusiaii
rcligioiiB feeling, bo far as it hat a centre,
turns towards Constantinople rathor than
towards St. Petersburg, which is indeed
far too modern for any sentiment of the
kind, Itis quito poasible, therefore, ifthe
Ossar lives, and finds that Kieff suits his
constitution and his children's, that the
old city on tho Dnieper may develop into a
stately capital, the seat of government, and
the focus of the railway ayatem of the empire."

Prod an Ion1 In Yurlou-t Countries and
How It Effect* the Price.
For a long time now���two yeara or more
���farmers and dealers have boen anxiously
looking for a rise iu wheat. It will bo recollected that Mr. 0. Wood Davis, a well-
known statistician living in Kansas, promised $2 a bushel to the wheat growers in the
near future. But, instead of thia, wheat
haa receded out of sjght.and instead uf any
probable advance in the market rates for
thia staple grain, there aeema to bo a very
certain further reduction until the very
lowest depth of competition is reached, A
writer in thi Country Gentleman contends
that we have not yet found the lowest price
of wheat, aud it seems from the evidences
at hand tho limit will not be far from 50
cents a buahel, laid down at the ultimate
market in Kngland. The icason assigned
for thia is that upon the vast plains of Argentina, uow looming upon the horizon as
cno vast wheat field, covering 240,000,001)
acres of fertile land, in a fine climate, the
vast quantity of not lees than 3,(lu0,001),00o
bushela annually can be raised, or more
than tho whole product of the world to-day.
America can raise
and lay it down in Kngland at 50 ccnta a
buahel. But in addition lo thia, all the
groat North-went will be growing wheat at
lhe soma price ; for thero, too,will bo found
ample room and fertile land enough to produce nearly as much as the broad plains of
South America.
Theso figure*) are supported by the host
of evidence given by an English writer in
an exhaustive article written for a leading
Chamber of Commerce in Kngland. And in
thia article the possibility���nay, tlm certainty���nf still lower prices Bcema to
be foreshadowed, if not assured, in a
very short time. For the last serious
drop in pi ices has been caused by almost
the first considerable exports from Argentina, consisting only of the comparatively
insignificant quantity of 20,000,000 bushels
in 1803.
The market price of anything is based on
the cost of producing it. Everything, from
a shoopeg to a diamond, ia thus valued in
the markets of the world. This is self-
evident, for the producer of anything of
**. alue mutt sell to live. And if thero is any
dilliculty in thus disposing of it ho will reduce the price, if it is possible, duwn to the
coat of production rattier than miaa a tale
of goods. And thc price is fixed for the
whole stock at tho lowest figure offered by
the most eager seller. Then the farmer
who can produce hia wheat at 25 centa per
bushel wilt sell as near thia value as he can
and get a profit.   Thus the
is valued at something moro than the cost
of the cheapest part of it. And if any country can grow it at 50 centa a bushel delivered at the place of sale and consumption,
that will inevitably regulate tho markets
of the world, when, as ia now the caae w ith
England, that place of consumption ia the
largest purchaser in the world, and is drawing supplies from every other wheat-growing
No other country occupies the tame
prominent position as a purchaser of wheat
and other grains as England, as last year
it purchased no leaa that 172,815,754 bushels, and thus it is the market by which the
Srioea of the world's harvests are fixed,
[ow, then, what ia the lowest cost at
which wheat can be produced in the world?
The English writer referred to begins
with Kansas. From that state he has information from one extensive producer that
wheat may ho grown at 25 cents a bushel,
all above that being the grower's profit.
Another cxtensivo farmer in Kansas tays
he can de'iver wheat in Kngland at the
present price of 80 cents a bushel, with a
very satisfactory pro-it. Now, the transport of wheat from Emporia, in Kansas,
to Liverpool, England, is 25 cents a buahel,
thus tu a great extent corroborating other
statements tothe effect that it Ja possible
to lay down wheat from Kansas in English
markets at 16 shillings thc quarter of eight
buahela.   Thia ia equal to $4 of our money.
But in Kansas a farmer has to pay a con
aiderable price for his land, while in Dakota
and tho Canadian Province of Manitoba
adjoining the land costs practically nothing,
and with ��5(11) a man may make a start as a
wheat-grower, and, aa stated in the article
referred to, become rich in a few years
growing wheat at 25 cents a bushel. And
a trustworthy journal, tha North-west
Farmer,of Winnipeg,after interviewing several large wheat-growers, states
for a bushel of wheat to be not mora than
10 cents, or for a crop of 25 bushels an a -tc
tho exceedingly low sum of $2 fiO per acre.
This counts only the actual cost of the work.
Thc product of Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota
and the Canadian North-west ia quite sufficient to fix the market value of wheat in
the British markets, without counting other
great producing countries.
But the same atory comes from them. In
Russia, the area of the best kind of wheat
lands may bo increased ten times ita present bounds, and here the low condition of
civilization and the fertility of lhe land go
to reduce the cost of grain to certainly aa
low a limit as on the American Continent.
In India the tamo circumstances prevail,
and in tliovastplainsof Argent;na in South
America the same atory of great undeveloped resources and highly satisfactory
{irofits, even at tho outset of tho business,
a told by unquestioned evidence, There
the English capitalists, who have gone into
wheat growing on a large scale, report the
profits at ,13 per cent, at the present prices,
and are certain that even at the low price
in England of 16 shillings (equal to $4) a
quarter, or 50 cents a bushel, the business
can be atill carried on with profit. Both
there and in India the pay of the workmen
ia almost ridiculously low. The avetsge ia
$1.25 a month���about equivalent to a day's
wages of aa American farm hand.

Arrival of the Princess Alexandra in
Extraordinary enthusiasm was evinced
on March 7th, KSti.'l, when the Princess
Alexandra, daughter of the'Kiug of Denmark, landed in England to be married to
the Prince of Wales ; and tbe public reception given to her was remarkable for
splendour and enthu&iaBm. The Princess
was met at Graveaend by the Prince of
Wales, and received by the Lords of the
Admiralty and the dignitaries of the town,
and afterwards accepted an address from
the Mayor, Aldermen, and Burgesses- She
travelled thence to London, and was enthusiastically received by the eager crowds
which gathered at every station along the
liue. At tiricklayers' Arms Station a royal
and official deputation awaited her, and
after a light lunch the illustrious bride and
bridegroom commenced their progress
through the Metropolis. At London Bridge,
which excelled all other placet for itt ex-
Eensive decoration, the procession was met
y the Lord Mayor, Corporation, and Civic
Companies, and at the Mansion Houee tho
Lady Mayoress presented tho Priucesswith
a tasteful bouquet. In St. Paul's Churchyard galleries had been erected lo accommodate about 12,000 pel-sons. Along the
wholo route tho people wero densely packed ; and not a building could be descried
which did not display borne flag, llornl device, or other token of welcome, while the
whole route was literally overarched with
banners, garlands, and streamers. After

Toronto a Seaport.
"Athos" concludes an intensely interest
ing article on "The Lake Sailor," in a
recent issue of the Empire, as follows *-���
Whilo il is safe to say that there will never
be a revival of purely Bailing vessels ou lake
Ontario solely for the lake freight trade, it
is not to be concluded from this that Toronto wilt not in time bo an extensive ship
ping port.
"In leas than three yeart," said Mr. J,
T, Mathewt, lhe well known shipper, "Toronto, by the completion of tho Lachine
and Cornwall canals, will bo a seaport.
Grain and other produce can then hi ship
ped direct from this city to European ports.
The shipping trade will pick up then and
it will not be a atrango sight to see the
crews ot foreign vessels treading the streets
of Toronto."
A prophecy of Toronto's futuro aa a sea-
port may not be amiss here. The coming
Jack with proclivities for a seafaring life
wil1, if Capt. Mathews' prediction lie veil
tied, have abundant opportunity of learning
the life and manners of nautical men.
Twenty years hence he will wander possibly ovor several milea of dooka along the
waterfront groaning under the produce <f
foreign lands, and swarming with tailors of
every nationality. He may possibly be able
to study the lithe Lascar or swarthy Span
ianl as lie shivers in the cold ray a of a Canadian Bun or listens to the euphonious oaths
of the English Jack as ho "shivers his
timbers" and prod-iims England oratress
of the aeas. Careful mother** will needs
then be obliged lo look well after their
Maryatt reading sons, for the sight of an
ocean sailing vessel entering Toronto bay
under full sail, with pennant flying to the
breeze, will be an irresistible incentive to
young Canada to try a seafaring life.
Of the advantages which will accrue to
Toronto ahould auch a statu of alfaira ever
exist I aay nothing.

"Craig," said Dootor John, sitting down
on a naibkcg, " why did you come here t"
"Because yousent for a lawyer and for Mias
Patten, I connected the mystery with the
young lady I had assisted to run away,
whoso fate has been a good deal of trouble
to me ever since, I wanted to help her, if
ueod be.   Is ihe very ill!''
*' Gotting better fast. It was mad folly
to start on a journey sick as she was. I
don't blame you, Craig, for that long ride
and the risk you ran : she ia very winning,
this troublesome little lady, and brave too.
It ia a wonder what a woman can endure, a
alight, frail creature whose hand you could
crush in yonr fingers."
"But sho had," aiid Oliver, uneasily,
"plenty of money had ahe not';'1
"She was travelling ia the day-coach,
and has, I think, about five dollars in a
ahabby little purse. Miss Patten was right
when sh-* mid wo ahould not see Mrs.
Minny until the money you gavo her waa
all gone. Wherj his ahe beon all these
long months? By lior finding the dog,
Miss Patten probably knows now,"
"Yes, and it was as I thought,���something entirely original. Near Boston Mra,
de Hostaud ;-ut acquainted with an elderly
female who ran some sort of retreat tor
aged pets, invalid dogs and eats. Tho
idea waa so novel Mra. Minny decided to
atop over aud see the plaoe. Finding Mrs,
Itltnn agreeable, and Skyo contented in the
aociety of hia kind at the retreat, shore,
mained. Sin* met a sailor from Newcastle
in tho street one day, and lio told her Mias
Patten hail not been home for a long time,
So she decided not to write any one, but to
remain hidden, One daya few weeka ago
;* ,e came home from the village muoh upset,
and acted oddly: she had either seen some
one or read something in a newspaper, for
the villag-i storekeeper saw her poring
over one, looking much upset. Two daya
later, leaving a noto containing board for
her dog, Bhu disappeared. This Mrs. lllinn,
who seem? to be a good sort of a person,
worrie.i a great deal, looking for her everywhere, and in hor search wrote to the postmaster at Newcastle, for aho had hoard Mrs,
Minnyspe.il- of having been there. Through
that letter Miss Patten found Skyo, and
then start, d for Denver,"
"She may have seen De Restaud, or that
servant of his," mused the doctor. "Well,
now you are hero,-���though I'd much rather
a stranger had come,���I want you to draw
up a paper setting forth the facts in this
case iu proper legal phraseology."
" I fail to comprehend just what you
������You sab," explainod the dootor, " the
French people are particular about documents ; and between the property uf De
Rostand's father and this child of Mrs,
Minny's there is only a feeble ohild,"
" Mrs. Minny's child!" repeated Oliver.
"Why, of course. Perhapa 1 had not
mentioned it. A nice boy,--healthy, I
think, and bound to outlive his cousin
across the seo. The little chap born ia that
poor place, that switchman's novel, may ho
the heir of millions. S > thero must be no
flaw in hia title or the record of his birth,
"A child, and she hero friend I ens, almost
alone." Oliver's face saddened, " Poor
little thing!" he muttered, "what a hard
world it hn*) beon tor her !"
"She is sensible about it, too," went on
Doctor John. "She wanted ino lo write
fora lawyer and have everything straight."
"Did aha auggestsending for me!" asked
Oliver, oddly.
The dootor hesitated, "No: she has
forgotten you, old hoy. Women are not
particularly gratt'ful. Thon it has been a
long time aince she saw or heard of you.
Your vanity may he hurt, but is it not bet*
ter that she has forgotten t"
" Undoubtedly," Oliver aaid, coldly. He
went towards the house hurriedly. "A freight
train passes herein a half-hour; I will go on
that: so get your papers ready and have
the people here sign their statements.
Miss Patten should also get that Mrs.Blinn
to give an account of Mrs.de Restaud's
atay at her house."
Mrs. Macon cleared the kitchen table
and brought pom and ink. Oliver wrote
swiftly, comparing his notes with tho doe-
tor's remombranco and Mrs. Macon's assertions. Finally she and her husband signed
their statements^tho doctor liis, and then
Oliver looked at th** clock. How hard
that writing had been to him no one ever
knew. Frum the cloicl door camo the
murmur af voices,���one that thrilled every
nerve and bet his heart fast beating. A
feeble cry now and then sounded strangely,
���tho It '- 'ife that had come in this far-
oil" place anu that might mean so muoh in
tho future. Outside, the white headed
children played in tin sunshine Skye,
liberated from hishideou-j bisket, which he
always rog irded with terror and plaintive
whines, rollicked with them, glad of his
freedom. How icli.iituly painful to record
those fasts before him, and to think of
her as he hud seen her first, that child
woman in hor clinging yellow gown petal-
led like a flower with its wide ruffle, her
glowing hair, liar beautiful pathetic
eyes! She had gone ao far from those days
iu hitter experience and suffering. Was
ahe changed, grown saddened and old, care
worn with thought?���a calculating woman,
forced to bo for tho child's sake ? Old, in
his mental picture of hur he could find no
plaoe for thc child. Ho aould remember her
with the little Skye terrier and that childish manner, but aa a woman, a mother,
Ill, friendless, homoless, no waif of the
streets Wis over moro desolate than she when
she stepped olf tho train at this barren spot
forced to accept the oh&rity of strangers.
Her dead father would have risen from hia
giave could he have known. His every
thought, Ms sister aaid, had boen for little
Minny.   Well it is the dead do not know.
" How fortunate you were on that train!"
Oliver said, suddenly.
Doctor John started. " Me ! Yes, it was,
and that I should have found our littio runaway, t own up I looked for hor all the
time I was away."
Tlio door opene 1, and Miss Patttn oame
softly in.
"Slio is ailoop, poor dear," aho aaid,
gently, "1 guess my oyes is rod. I waa
upiet, and ah j don't seem to think she done
any hurm In not lottini* mo know where
sho was, alu* was so do-pat and scared.
"Whon ynu ret urn to Boston,"said Oliver,
"have Mrs, lllinn tnakea statement of Mra.
do Restaud's stay in her house. I must
caution ynu also to be very careful of tho
mxrriage certificate nnd till other papers
you may have concerning your niece."
"You can trust me," aaid Miss Patten,
grimly. "1 took'cm away from that farm
of theirs when 1 was a-viniting thore, and I
mean that Minny's baby shall have his
rights, for he's part Patten, anyway, and
would'a'been my brother Ham's grandson.
Sorry I be ho ain't ulivo to Bee him. Minny
aaya alio saw a IJ nt ing paper that offered a
reward for her whereabouts or any information concerning her, giving her name right
out iu the piper, and that was what mado
her leavo Mrs. B'.iim's, who was a kind,
good woman, if sho is in a fodisii businesa ; but I don't know why dogs and oats
shouldn't bo took caro of, and folks in
Boating ia always running to somo new freak.
Minny evidently thought Mrs. Blinn would
toll on her and get tho reward j but Mrs,
Blinn aaid she'd 'a' dono by Minny as her
own child."
"Whs that what mado her come West*"
csked Dootor John.
"The poor liltlo soul thought It her duty
to go to her husband- brute as ho is," -.aid
Miss Patteu, brokenly. "And to think
that I said slio was frivolous aud hadn't no
stability! As muoh grit as I've got, IJ
wouldn't daro go to that wolf's den on tho j
Troublesome and to bo iu thai man's power.
I always thought ho wa'n't right in his
mind. Minny oal'lated on account of the
baby he'd bo more kind, and for tho baby's
aake she ought to mako up with him,"
Oliver drummed idly on the window-ail).
Dootor John walked up and down the room
that had grown ao still one could bear the
ticking ofthe clock.
" Wimmen," said the switchman, slowly,
" don't git no credit for bein' brave and
goin' through things 'count of what they
thinks ia their dooty. My wife thinks it's
horn to live here 'count of me, when ahe
left a good home back Rut. That little
woman in there is lornin' the womar* natnr'
of endurin" for a man; but where my wife
'ud live and make oomtort outer it, she'd
jest lie down an' die a-frettin'."
" You've read her right," said Miss Patten, solemnly, "an* I'm goin' to take her
home with me: she ain't goin* no further
West, nor to no lone farms in mountain
valleys, which was nearly the death of her
Oliver glanced at the clock, then abruptly aaid good-bye. He left no message for
Mra. de Restaud, nor did Miss Patten ask
him for one. She was rigid in her ideas of
what waa proper, and he respected her for
"P'r'aps," ahe hesitated, "you'd like to
see the baby, I could fetoh him out without waking him."
"No," Oliver smiled: "a oity bachelor, as
you called me once, Mias Patten, haa no
interest in infants. I���I think I should be
rather afraid of him."
He and the doctor walked up and down
heaide the track, waiting for the train.
The latter had hia big pipe, but not his
flowered dressing-gown. Hia embroidered
cap waa at the retreat for invalid pets.
Skye had not chewed it, Mra. Minny assert-
ed,for ahe meant to keep it forever.especial-
ly now, as he was auoh a dear man.
" She���ihe-Ukes the baby V Oliver asked, awkwardly, as he lit a oigar.
" I am aorry to aay she doea not manifest
any rapture at all. I think ahe was more
delighted to see her dog. I always have
tho idea when I aee her with young Francois
that aho ia a little girl playing with her doll.
She is afraid of him if ne oriea, and moans
because he his black eyes and looks like
the Frenchman."
" Well," aaid Oliver amiling sadly, " the
chapter is ended, I have turned a page in
my life's atory. She wilt be safe and sheltered now, and I delegate to you my position as adviser. In the next elopement Mrs.
Minny makes you must be tne assistant.
There is my train ��� and ao good-by."
Oliver thought the whole affair would
Sasa from his mind, especially as Dootor
ohn on hiB return said they had gone to
Maine and Mrs. Minny had never mentioned him ; but one day a month from that
time at the switchman's house a letter
came to Oliver. He looked at the scrawly
superscription, the post-mark Newcastle,
and he knew woll Hannah Patten did not
attempt an Italian hand. He smiled with
pleasure: it waa good to be remembered
after the long silence, and he had braved
many dangers for that ungrateful young
woman, the worst an encounter with her
frenzied husband,
"Dear Mr. Oliver,���
"To think you were ao near and I could
not see you I 1 oried when they told me.
I am not going to pay your money back yet
until I aet my own from Mr. de Restaud,
We have put our case in the handa of an
old lawyer here who was a college-mate of
my dear dead lather, and he th iu ks I ought
to get a divorce, and haa written to Mr.
de Hostaud ao. We watch the baby close*
ly, for fear Henri will try to steal him. I
have never thanked you for helping me
run away. How good you were 1 1 think
of you often; but Aunt Hannah will never
speak of you, and folks here think it is
droadful tone divorced. They aay I am
uhe that married a Frenchman���I auppoae
they think he is from Canada���and am going into the courts to get a separation from
him. For no fault of mine I must be disgraced. Kven Aunt Hannah admits I
never ought to go back to htm ; it would
not be safe.
" I had a nice time at that dogs' home ;
it waa a funny pUce, with the nicest old
doga and cats. Skye had a grand time.
One dog was fifteen years old and had to
be fed on gruel. Still, I think taking oare
of poor animals is better than theoaophy
and those fads, and Ronton does havo aome
real good freaks, I expect some day they
will build an old maids home. You never
taw bo many old maids as there are there,
Mrs. Blinn has seven slaters in one of those
Newton towns,���there's an endless chain
of them,���aod not one of them���the sisters, no1*, tho towns���ever had a beau.
" Pleass do not dislike me, or at
the mention of my name put on your
haughty look, aa you did when 1
said things offending your nice sense
of what a woman's conversation ahould
ho ; and write me one little letter to
say you are atill my good friend. I ahall
never ask you to help me again , I do not
need it; so you will be safe in continuing
our acquaintance. Aunt Hannah does not
know 1 havo written you. I get too many
moral lectures anyway from her, for she
saya I must educate myself so my son will
have a high opinion of mo. He doos not
bother about me, but divides his attention
principally in blinking at her and the lamp,
with a loaning towards the light. That
laat 18 naughty, ia it not?
"Always your friend
(as the dootor calls me)
"Tim Troublesome Lady."
The wound was not healed, Oliver
thought bitterly. Why of all women must
he oare for this one and be so haunted by
her memory! Every look of hers, her
words, her gestures, the little yellow gown
were as plain to him after a year au if he
had seen her bub ycatorday. He had striven
hard to forget, to do his duty. Yet was
there harm in writing just a few lines ?
The narrow path was terribly lonely in life,
���not a pith that had been his in the past }
and yet���and yet ahe was a child. That
stern, honest old women believed in him and
trusted to his honor.
While he mused, tho ahook-healed boy
knocked and thrust in hia freckled faoe.
"Uent tor aeo yer," he said, hoarser than
usual, for there had been a base-ball match
the day before, and he had been excused
from duty because hia "mudder was sick.1

In Canada, the services of Lord Lans*
downe as Governor-General were both acceptable and able. For thia reason, our
best wishes followed his Excellency to
India, where he was to assume heavier
duties on behalf of tho Crown. Lord Lans
downe resigned his post on January 26 to
Lord Elgin, the new Viceroy, and it is
gratifying to know from the Calcutta press
that, before leaving India, he received
from alt classes and creeds expressions of
respect and of approval ai the popular
reward for hie, administration. The Governor-Generalship of India ia the highest
gubernatorial position her Majesty can con*
fer. It ia almost an absolute monarchy.
But as the powers which appertain to it
are great, so are its responsibilities. The
Viceroy must surrender his charge unimpaired, and must, if  posaible, add to the
in the East, and to the general happiness
and contentment of the people over whom
he has ruled. Lord Landsaowne, judging
by the addresses he received on the occasion
of his departure, has boen eminently successful. Tne English residents, the Mohammedans, tho Sikhs, the Talukdars of
Outih, the Hindus, all joined in doing him
honor. Yet his work haa been one of great
difficulty. He haa had to deal with international questions, with issues in which
race and religion have been iuvolvod, and
with economic matters, auoh aa the currency
and the commercial relations. With regard
to the first the Mohammedans -pointed to
hia triumphs. They aay in their address
that they congratulate his Excellency upon
the firmer basis upon which he has placed
thoalliancewlth'Afghanistan.andihe success
with whioh he haa secured the cordial
friendship and co-operation of the ruler
of that State.   The Ameer is now
with British policy, and the northern kingdom in a bulwark against aggression. In
the matter of religion, Lord Lansdowne
had a difficult task to perform. The early
marriages among the Hindus were evila as
aerioua wheu dealt with, as suttee, a religi
oua but inhuman rite now aboliahed. These
marriages, prearranged as they were on the
principle that women were no hotter than
staves, were stopped through the agency of
a law affecting the age of consent. The
enactment, with other agencies, produced
riots. Lord Lansdownea firmness here
asserted itself. He aaid in a speeoh at this
period : "Let mo tell you in the plainest
" language, that the Government ot India
"has no intention of permitting theso e:;
" hibitions of lawlessness to be renewed
" Our policy is one of strict neutrality and
" toleration, but that toleration does not
" extend to disorder and crime, ��.nd win*
" ever ia at the head of affairs in India, de-

" be put down with a strong and fearless

trouble, and as a consequence civil dissension ia at an end.   It was
that brought the ailver iasue to a head,
That it will be productive of good is the
nniv srsal belief. Lord Lansdowne has been
a firm and successful administrator. He
haa surrendered the Indian Empire to hia
successor in a better condition than that in
which he found it. As he went to India
carrying Canada's host wishes with him, he

Will  Be In Operation at the  Antwerp
Exposition, the Fare to De 91.
A flying btreet car Is the latest novelty
whioh an ingenious Belgian has devised for
the convenience anl ainmemont of visitors
to thB Antwerp exposition. He does not
call it a flying street car, but "grand ballon
dirigeable " is the Belgian way of putting
it. Inappearanoe the flying street oar resembles the famous Pennington air ship or
a miniature whaleback upside down. The
floating apparatus is a huge cigar-shaped
ban, to which is attached the atreet car
itself. In the front or prow of the car is
an immense fan or propeller and at tho
other end an apparatus like a barn door in
three sections, which provides a rudder.
The car is divided into three sections, one
for the motor man, another for the passengers, and a third, which corresponds about
in size to the baggage apartmont on a suburban car, is for tho use of the conductor.
The much-abused trolley system has been
turned to good account in Connection with
this flying atreet car, as from tho overhead
wire the electricity is obtained with which
to work the motor. Connecting the car
with this overhead wm is a traveling cable,
one end oi which connects with the motor,
the other being attached to a trolley which
slides along the wire as the oar moves, In
the rear compartment nf the car, where
thu conductor has his quarters, is all the
paraphernalia for lowering the machine. A
atout ship's anchor attached hy a wire
cable to a windlass, which in turn is connected with the electric motor, provides the
means for hauling down the flying car when
a station Is reaohed whore passengers are
to alight.
The first practical demonstration of this
aerial means of rapid transit will be made
during the Antwerp exposition. One model
machine is already pretty well advanced
toward completion, the termini of the route
being the exposition grounds and the bourse
at Antwerp, which aro about a mile apart.
During the exposition trips will he made
every half hour by thia novel moans of locomotion and the auccess of the experiment
may probably revolutionize street car traffic.
One great drawback to its popularity,haw-
ever, is that the trip of a mile will ooit 5
francs, or SI.

Coming From ll-im'iqrs to New Vork true
Barque Itroombatl I* Blow.i Into
lhe Arctic,
Racked and torn tiy the gales of the-Mar
North and after drifting fnr weeks in the
darkness which hangs over the shore- of
the lands of the midnight suu the barque
Rroomhall got into New Vork ou Saturday.
She had been at sea for 108 days, and for
nearly two months no trace of her had been
seen. She has just ended what is probuMy
the longest passage between Hamburg and
New York known in thc history of shipping.
Her agents began to get anxious about her,
as she was anywhere from fifty to sixty
day   overdue,
She came In with no topgallant bulwarks
and rails to speak of and with oue nun
missing from her crew. She Ind plenty of
stores on board, but her crew were on short
rations of water, and only by the strictest
economy did Captain Taylor savo his men
from the sufferings of thirst.
The Broumhall was a trim and shipshape vessel when she weighed anchor at
Cuxhavcn and left the Elbe for the open
The cracking of the capstan bars and the
clicking of the pawls had hardly stopped
bofore there was heard the roar of the tern*
Seat. The waves rolling under the Broom*
sll's counter were lashed into an angry
aea before she was three days out. There
came a gale from the south southeast on
November 11 which sent her staggering
northward under lower topsailB.
The gale became a storm and tho storm
a hurricane. There was no escape for the
Broomhall, She was brought to the wind
on the port tack to avoid the blows of the
waves upon her quarter. Theu the gale
veered to the north, northeast and struck
the barque a blow alt whioh caused her
frame to shake and tremble.
It tore away the lower topsails and rip
fed the upper topsails from their gaskets.
t rolled the barque over on her starboard
side to the hatches.
The cargo of salt shifted and gave the
Broomhall a starboard liat. Tons of water
flooded the oil room and pantry.
Waves swept the vessel's docks olean of
ladders, winches and capstan bars.
Then came a lull in the storm. The crew
made two new lower topsails, and bent
them to the yards. The gale blew thom
into ribbons. Then began the laborious
work of sailmaking anew.
The orew were busy making sails and the
continuous galea were as diligent in disposing of them. The Broomhall lost nearly
two entire seta of canvaa before her voyage
was over. Every man who was not absolutely needed for the handling of the ship
was put to sailmakinir.
The Broomhall drifted to the northeast,
making leeway under the united influence
of west and northwest gales. The days
grew shorter. The barque drifted into the
region of Arctic night.
The sun showed its face for a short while
at noon and then hid in darkneaa. The
barque went on impelled by the gale which
shrieked through her rigging aud flooded
her decks with stinging apray.
The green brine swept her decks fore and
aft. A mountainous mass of water broke
in a roaring flood over her bows. It wrench*
ed iron rails and stanchions, carried away
the top rail of the port bulwarks, tore the
thin covering of teak wood from the deck
houso, burst open the cabin doors and
flooded foreeistlo and cabin.
It raked the vessel fore and aft liko a
broadside of artillery. It swept over the
docks like a resistless tide and then poured
over thc stern. In its embrace it carried
Charles Marx, a young German seaman.
The man was standing near one of the
forward winches. Ho was hurled against
the deck and, bleeding and unconscious,
was washed overboard,
In a squall on January 15 tho foresail
and foretopsail, both of whioh had just
been made, were split frum foot to head,
and the maintopnuao staysail aud mizzeu
staysail were blown away. For the crew
things were exceedingly uncomfortable on
that barque. The forepoak was flooded
part oi the time level with the deck.
Owing to a leak in one of the tank pipes
the drinking water becamo brackish and
the tea and coffee made from it were almost nauseating. The water aupply was
almost exhausted when the birque had
been at sea for seventy days, and it wab
carefully portiunod out each day. And it
hardly lasted uutil tho Broomhall reached
The barque had galea from every point
of the oompaas nearly until February 27,
when the wind hauled oil to north-northeast aud blew a moderate breeze, which
brought the Broomhall to Sandy Hook. In
tier voyage of 108 days she had ninety daya
of gales and hurricanes.
Captain Taylor is now counting tho cost
of this long voyage He finds Old Ocoan ia
indebted to him for the following t���
Four lower topsails, two uppor topsails
one foretopmast staysail, one main topmast
staysail, threo mizzen staysails, ono main
staysail, one jib, one star board cathead
broken off short, iron rails twisted and
broken, teak fittings torn from deckhouse,
one forward winch, SO feet of sta board topgallant bulwarks with rails, 120 feet of port
topgallant bulwarks and one life boat
smashed beyond repair.
He haa charged up to profit and l*ias a
tew ladders and capstan bars whioh, he
saya, old Neptune misappropriated.
" In spite of all the damage the Broomhall sustained she did not lose a spar. I
never had harder work in keeping masts in
a vessel in my life, but wegot hore without
carrying away a atiok.
It seemed to me, though, that wo loft
canvas all the way from Iceland to Sandy
Hook. I don't want anybody to mention
the subject of topsails tome fora week."
.1 Kentucky Plan nmi the Itt-asen It Is
foi lowed.
Tho farmers near Louisville, Ky., have,
for several yeara past, beon iu lho habit of
flowing two crops of potatoes nn tho name
and, The early Spring and hot Summer
cause the first crop to ripen early in July.
Tho land is plowed ond immediately replanted, and the second crop is killed by
frost in October when the tubers aro half
to two-thirds grown and still puito immature. These second crop tubers are inferior
for eating, but, it is claimed, are far better
for next Spring planting than the first
crop, and for the following reasons t���
1. They keep In a cool cellar without
sprouting or shrivelling or losing one particle of their vigor. It seems that having
been chocked bofore maturity, they lie
dormant, ready to sind up a shoot when
again In warm ground as vigorously as thoy
were growing when stopped by the frost.
2. They never send up but ono sprout.
This is true whether they are planted
whole or cut to any number of oyos down
to one. The consequence is that all the
growth goes Into the tubera that come on
one stalk (generally from five to eight) and
these all grow to full marketable size. If tlie
ground be vory rich, and the season fine,
they will all be extremely large.
3. They can be cut aix weeka, or in faot
any length of time, before planting. Tho
only precaution necessary is that they shall
be kept, after being cut, tn barrels open at
the top only. If thero are openings at the
side and bottom the pieces thus exposed
will deteriorate, Tho gardener or farmer
using second crop seed can do his cutting
on rainy days or at other convenient times,
and he will always bo ready to tako full
advantage of a spell of good weather for
4. Growers of second crops by planting
early in July in this latitude can got a fine
crop of (ull grown potatoes, winch sell
better in market than thoso from the North;
or, bv waiting until tho latter part of the
month, they get seed potatoes of the very
host quality.

Sarcasm ���
There are a great many ways of killing
love, trust and kindly feeling, but people
who indulge in sarcasm seem to favor the
slow, suro and torturing method which
gradually smothers every sentiment that

It takes a great deal of heroism and
Christian grace to livo in the aame houae
with a sarcastic torgue���to hoar day after

and to realize that there is no hope of escape from the chilling oppressiveness that
shadows a home where every spontaneous
expression is ridiculed and every good
motive misconstrued.
People who livo In an atmoaphere of this
description are often strengthened by the
hope that time will grant them immu nity
trom triala that are almoat unbearable. A
hopeless apathy ainka deep into many
hearts, while others rebel against injustice
and inaugurate a aiej-e of open warfare
which destroys forever the prospect of restoring domestic peace and harmony.
We hear of fathers who oppose everything that savors of hilarity. The joyous
expressions that fall from thc lipa ot sons
and daughters are quickly suppressed.
The iron hand of parental authority
crushes aspirations, cherished plana are
ridiculcu, and youthful minds are filled
with the pessimistic sentitnen ts that nurture

A Sh alf for Repairs-
There are few things of greater use to a
house keeper who has to study economy than
a shelf with materials for repairing and
renovating. First of all ahe should have
two or three small cans of paint and two
good brushes of different sizes. Paint
preserves as well as decorates.
By far the most satisfactory method of
keeping a hearth clean is to keep it painted
onoe a week, or once a fortnight, or even
onoe a mouth, according to the way it ia
used���it will bo needlulto retouch it. It
you use black or the dull Pompeian red,
it makes a beautiful background, or rather
framework, for the fire, throwing irto fine
relief tho shining brass ami tho fire glow
until the whole hearth is like a visible welcome to guest and friend, Besidei the
beauty of it, it is invaluable in lossening
tho burden of daily labor.
In papering a room be careful to keep
remnants to repair cracked or torn places.
It is never easy to match. When you are
upholstering furniture, it is better to use
pieces of a yard or so in making cushions.
These always give a room an air of comfort
and completeness. It is not wise to store
up remnants, /or whioh any one can find
immet'iate use. House loom ia usually
worth mnre than an accumulation of useless
odds and ends.
A little can of white paint and a bottle
of liquid gilt wiil change the old, battered
wooden picture frames into neat, pretty
ones iu whito and gold, which are particularly protty for bedrooms and sitting rooms,
where everything should be bright aud
cheerful. The liquid gilt is invaluable in
another kind of repairing. A friend of mine
had a large and costly Japanese vaao broken
by accident. It could be mended with
cement or glue, and she did thia with the
greatest care, but thero Were the ugly lines
where the fracture had been. An inspiration of genius seized her ; her smallest
brush dipped in the liquid gilt waa drawn
along each crack, and not only hid the line
o cement, but enriched the quaint, zigzag
Japanese pattern, with which the fine lines
of gold happily blended. It would be almost impossible to detect any breakage
from tho outsido of tho vase. There are
different ways in which you can yourself
make a cement tor broken china; the white
of an egg and flout- made into a paste, or
half anounco of gum ambit- dissolved In a
wino glass of boiling water and thickened
with plaster of pans.
Gilt may be nijoly cleaned by using a
mixture of alum, one ounce ; nitre, two
ounces; salt, one ounce, all dissolved in a
gill of water. For furniture use turpentine
and sweet oil, and rub vigorously, There
is nothing liko dry rubbing with flannel far
keoping the beauty and polish of wood,
After ail it is only half the ohapter to acquire beautiful things; by far the moat
importwit part is keeping them beautiful,

Facts as lo Ihe Work In Paris, Vienna, Ber
Hn, Mancbrsler and London.
An ingenious Frenchman haa just published a number of valuable facts about the
street work of Paris, the cleanest city in the
world. Every morning 2,f)00 male and MOO
female scavengers, divided into 1411 brigades, turn out to perform the toilet of the
capital. Tho men work from 4 a. m. to
4 p. m., less two hours off for meals, or ton
hours a day, earning, moat of them, from
2 shillings tl ponce to II shillings. The women are engaged in the morning ��� nly, and,
bf-int/ paid .'1 pen co au hour, make only 1
shilling 0 penio a day at the outside.
Night work in Paris is, it aeema, unknown
���at any rate, to the regular t-oavengcrs,
Siiould a shower occur in the evening, reserves aro Bout out to clear away the Blush
and make tho streets clean again.
Iu our large English cities, on the other
hand, states Cabell'** Saturday Journal,
muoh sweeping is dono about midnight.
As with us the Paris administrative has
direct con troloflits scavenging arrangements,
whioh cost ��240,01)0 a year. In Vienna,
where the same work is admirably done, it
is otherwise. Each town contracts for a
inumber of years with the transport gesetl-
schaft, the chief carrying company, for the
cleaning of its streets in all weathers
Tho company finds both men and materials,
in abundance, as is shown by some statistics relating to a snowstorm of a short time
back. In one day tiiern were in uso twenty
snow plows, twenty sweeping machines,
200 two-horaod wagons, and 3,000 hands,
Berlin, however, is made presentable much
inorecheaply than Paris,tnecostof sweeping
the streets there being only ��80,000 a year.
This sum, again, affords a curious contrast
with that spent in thc same way by Manchester. Eight years ago tho cleansing ot
Cottonopolis cost ��00,000 per annum; it
now costs double that amount�����180,000���
though, of course, the city has not increased
proportionately. But it must not be forgotten that in our large towns tho expenditure on atreet cleaning has ol late years
been abnormally heavy owing to the severe
winters we have experienced and the consequent difficulty In clearing away snow
What ia the costof London's toilet! No
statistician has yot attempted to estimate
it, and indeed the whole subject has been
neglected. Thia is a pity, aince there are
aome wonderful figures about cleaning the
streets of the metropolis. The most startling perhaps are those relating to London
bridge. It Is computed that about 200,0110
pedestrians and 20,000 vehicles cross that
structure every day. Eaoh leaves behind a
little shoe leather or a little iron���just a
trifle. Bnt when litter and dust aro added
to these minute losses the whole fills between
three and four oarts. The most surprising
fact of all, however, ia that the Incessant
traffic acroaa the bridge reduces to powder
about twenty-five cubic yards of granite
every year. Where la there another bridge
the annual loaa of which is anything like
half as mooh!

Announcement to the Electors:

for the District of Comox at  the  forth-

Joseph Hunter.
The bottom'has dropped out of the
dark lantern parly. It may flounder a-
bout a little, but it is deserving of quite
as much pity as censure.
No wonder that K. 1'. Rithet didn't
like the idea of his name being kicked
thriiuf-h the district like a foot-ball. It
isn't a very edifying spectacle.
There appear to be some people whe
don't understand the difference between
lumest directness ancl abuse. Let us illustrate. To call a good man bad names
is abuse, but lo show up a candidate in
bis true colors is a public duly. To tell
the truth is nol abuse.
As there are some who seem to think
that lhe Creech, ".Shorty" & Casey party
areata great disadvantage because it
lias no newspaper through w Inch io make
its policy known, if indeed il has any beyond g^umy office, we desire to say that
the said party has applied for and can
have any reasonable space, at the usual
commercial rates; the only conditions im
posed being that nothing will be inserted
either libelous or scandalous; that all articles shall be duly signed or marked in
some way so as not to appear as the utterance ofthe paper, and paid for in spot
About   Ourselves.
Wc hear it said that we ouyht to take
no sides in the political contest, and that
we are pledged to be independant. So
far as the pledge goes wc have said noth
ing about the matter except in our s.ilu.
latory in which we declared it lo be our
purpose to give the j^overmnent an independent support, That wc have done
and arc slill doing. We are not for thc
government blindly, or through thick and
���-bin, as it is sometimes phrased; but so
far as we think it does rij-lit. We are
for Hunter because we think lie will be
the mosi useful member wc could possibly get, and because he i*> head and should
ers above any man yet named for the
lV*ce, in cliaractei and influence. I'd be
neutral, neither one tiling or another- is
a part we have no disposition lo play. If
wc are to dist uss public affairs wc must
necessarily treat upon the important ques
ttons of ilic day, and if we are to consider the best interests of the district and be
true to them, we must consider the fitness
of candidates for the office of re p re tentative. In -nhcr words if we are to be a
force for yood in this community, we
musi speak out boldly in politics and demand honest methods and insist upon
candidates of high character. We shall
in politics do what ive deem to be right
and for the best interests of the people
among whom we dwell, and no threats of
being boycotted will avail to turn us a-
side Irom the course we deem proper to
A  Strange Institution.
The Canada Western is a strange institution, having strange ways, and doing
strange things. Last year it made strange
t-iurvcys between Comox Hay and Duluth
very much resembling in form an apple
paring as it lulls upon the ground, After
the surveys were completed it strangely
withheld from the men pay for the last
month's service before their discharge;
and its management strangely left Victoria, strangely forgetful of the just claims
of lheir wa*. her worn en. This year this
same institution suddenly drops down
out of a clear sky into the Comox valley,
and announces as its strange mission lhe
election of.i member for this district to
serve in the next Provincial legislature.
It proclaims ������Shorty" as its cindidate
and the Moses, if elected, who will lead
the railway past every man's door, aud
make a townsite of every man's fa1 in,
In some strange way ihe track is to be
conducted across the Gulf of Georgia
and made to pierce mountain ranges until it emerges, smiling like an athlete, upon the table lands of the Northwest. The
candidate, it must be said, measured by
his distinguished characteristics is not un
fitted for the strange task assigned bun.
He makes an almost ideal Moses, and
wc may expect great things of him. While
we cannot aid his political pi (-tensions,we
shall be very glad to award him credit
for any triumphs he may achieve as a
railway magnate. It may be that nature
designed liim for just such an undertaking, and after perfecting bun broke the
mould; so thai if he falls there will be no
one to take his place. It would be best
therefore that he should carefully, guard
bis health and strength, so that Comox
shall not loose his strancly valuable services by any preventable mishap.
Give  Usa Manly Opposition.
Wc understand there is a gentleman
up bete from Nanaimo to urge the bring
ing out of a straight Opposition candidate
Well, there would be some sense in such
a movement. We like an open manly op
ponent. So long as government is by
party, so long will :l be best to have two
parties in thc country whose branches
hhall extend to, and make themselves
felt in every district. Hut the present
iinnflcsciipt affair run by Shorty, Creech
and Casev is practically a craft sailing
under false colors. As such, those gentlemen who believe in straight foi ward
dealing should cease to have anything
further to do with it. The only government candidate now in the field is Mr.
Hunter, wbo has done well by the district during the last four years. If there
is any other candidate to be supported
let it be an out and out Oppositionist,
and one, who, if elected, will be a credit
to the district. Such a contest we should
welcome. Railroads should not be considered in the matter. The Canida Wes
tern is in the air, and while wc are satisfied that the Esquimalt and Nanaimo
will be extended, wc do not ask votes for
Mr. Hunter on that ground, but on the
record which he has already made.
