NUMBER 123
Mr. Morley says that the Tory
party in England i. »• Wind old man
led by a very lively "dog. The Tones
might retort that the Radical party
ragti'Ani
cliists to blow up the water works
of that city ia not surprising. If
thehe. u.afythiap:aii. Awoliist des-
pisos it is water. You never heard
of an, Anarchist j plot';to, blow up a

There (oan be no doubt that the
evil, of indorsing notesiiairesuited
in the ruin of many good farmers.
Young men.porticularly should shun
this practice. The responsibility is
too. gT-it. i The indorsed as«„___s
evera, responsibililty, yat he,ha«m(*

transaction, and' fto 'vpjee: in, its
management. He must simply pay
the' lulll i.mount, if by means 'of
misfortune, mismanagement or ras-
entity thor (baker of the note cannot
pay.it, There is nothing to be made
but*kWj*U-liig-& UtH" The db-
mands ,bf frionilsiiip are great, but
the duty one owes to himscrlt und
those who are dear to him should
never be overlooked,—Rural Nets

'After, refel+mg to b* (lumber of'
railway.' rumm-s, tho Blaine Journal
says; "The. above,, it wijl be observed, would indicate tbat'htilrdad
movoiu'ents'iii this section of' territory will probably be the construction of a line from Fort Hope south
to Seattle, to giver- the Canadian Pa
oino a.' diMeC'iwie for carrying
through freight between Seattle and
eastern points, and tho extension
of a lino from New Westminster
to connect with the Seattle-Fort
Hope line at some point in Whatcom county, perhaps at or noar Bellingham Bay. This road would
serve as a feeder to New Westmin
ster and ihe 0. P. terminus, and
also give those cities direct shoreline r&ilway oonneotiblr with' this
torritor, and with Seattle, and in
connection with the Northern Pacific! a' flfreat' Ifcufe (6 Tacomu and
Portland. We are assured by contractor Williams, of ihe postal telegraph line, that the extension of the
New Westminster line would be a
very cheap road to build.', By crossing the Surrey flats to the point bo
tween Semiahmoo and Boundary
bays known as North Bluff, thenoe
along the shore of Semiahmoo bay
DraytAn harbor to the mouth of
California creek, and thence atrois
the country to the Nooksack river
and on to a junction with the other
road, comparatively littlo grading
would be required." !0_,
The benefit which freo trade confers on Great [ Britain candot perhaps* be better exemplified than in
the trade with South America. If
any country should be able to compete with Britain in thtste southern
markets surely the, United States, is
that one. Even now this country
is ambitious of controlling th* political destinies of the Argentine Republic, ahd yet the protective tariff
here completely excludes manufacturers from these southern markets,
which thoy might reasonably expect
especially to cnll their own. Yet
how do the facts, stand) Almost
the ono half of the-whole imports
into the Argentine Republic come
from Great Britain, ana these of a
kind—cotton, wool and. iron, the
nutuitl jirodUcU of this country—
in Which the United Slates should
specially be. enabled successfully to
compete. Whilo, however, the Value
of the imports from Great Britain
last year amounted to {30,727,694,
those from the United States aggre
gated only $7,457,832; indeed the
value of the imports from the little
country pf' Belgium, fodted; up $.",•
249,T87,'v.h.l. tlie exports" to the
latter .'were $14,878,945 agniutt
94,564,848 to this country. Of
course the balance of trade may in
that case be said to be ngainst Belgium, ks it also is ag.iilist France
with $10,8811,590 of imports and
$22,5ft,341 ofexports. Against
Britain's $30,727,694 bf imports,
however, there is only $7,211,437
of exports, leaving the balanco of
trade nearly four and a' half times
in its favor. People who talk about
the United States being a formidable competitor with Great Britain
in foreign markets should ponder
over suoh facts as these, and con-
aider whether,, irftor nil, it would
not be greatly to the advantage of
thia country if it followed: the good.
example and adopted free trade.

It will be seen from a report of
the licensing court that a now license has been granted in this city.
This will be a matter of regret .to
all who hold that an increase in the
number bf licenses tends to increase
the evils of the traffic. There are
some who do not hold this view,
but go so far as to advocate the
granting of all applications, for
licenses, making it a question of
revenue only. But such a theory
is entirely contrary to experience.
At Langley, also, a new license has
been granted, although we are assured public sentiment was decidedly
against it, . These facts point to the
inefficiency of tho laws by'which
licenses are regulated in this country, and, the need of fresh legislation, tinder existing regulations
there seems to be no difficulty in
obtaining a license anywhere, and
in municipalities especially the people have really no voice in the matter. In unorganized districts a
license cannot be granted without
a petition from .two-thirds of the.
residents', in municipalities the
reeve and one magistrate may grant
as many ilic'enses us they choose in
spite of all the people of British
Cqluuibiai This ought not to bo.
The people of the municipalities
ought to have as much voice in this
matter as the people' of unorganized territory, and the legislature
ought to move in that direction at
its next session

Beautify the City.
It is the opinion of many
thoughtful persons that this city
ought to borrow a considerable sum
of money. We have tlie railway,
and with it we stand in a very favorable position for securing a large
and paying trade. It is worth.while
to consider how whether we should
not 'turn our attention to the work
of beautifying our city and adding
to its attractions as a place of residence. The natural beauty of ite
situation is great, but it might be
greatly improved by the hand of
art. We have no parks and very
few drives that are attractive. Immediately east of the city limits
there is a considerable area of waste
land known as the Park. The asylum stands in front of this, -but
there is lots of room outside of the
asylum grounds for a park that
would answer the purposes of the
city for many years to come. This
park property, however, still remains in the hands of the provincial government, and as long as it
continues so to remain nothing will
be done towards beautifying it or
adapting it for the purposes for
which it was originally set apart.
It was undoubtedly intended as a
publio" park, and ieannot justly be
diverted from that purpose. We
believe tKeire''are.,,a number of citizens ready to assist personally in
beautifying these grounds whenever
they are placed legally under the
city's control. It would be well,
perhaps, if a petition was prepared
for-signature by our citizens, asking
the government to hand over this
reserve to be held by the city, or by
trustees, in trust to be used as a
public park. Then let the city expend a few thousand dollars on it
laying out pleasure grounds and
making it attractive, and the city
will reap a splendid return for the
investment. The reserve that lies
east of the school grounds, also, is
much in need of improvement. It
is too small for a park, but at a
moderate expenditure it could be
made very attractive, and ns it lies
right in the heart of the city, it
would become a resort for those who
wished to catch a breath of fresh
air without going too far for it. The
front of the river should also be
improved between Columbia street
and the railway. The Indian houses
should all bo removod, the river
bank properly sloped, and beautified
by shrubbery or terraces and walks.
The cct| wjuld be considerable, but
the effect would be to improve wonderfully the appearance of the city
from the river. Then there ought
to be a city hall erected, and a building for a public library and mechanics' institute, and we ought to have
a public .market, lt may be objected that the cost of these improvements would be so great ns to
bear heavily on the tax-payers; but
this city, has no debt to speak of,
ahd if tho taxes wore heavy for a
few years, they would soon become
light in consequence of incroased
population and larger revenue. Hitherto nothing has been done towards
making the city beautiful, because
wo haro had on hand other schemes
which seemed of vastly greater importance. These, or the most important of them, having been accomplished, it is time for us to begin
the work of adornment, /and it ought
to be begun next year.

suggest ths' propriety of .making, th.

now.
In. its composition' farmers will
hugely predominate in the Manitoba
new legislature; they more than double
the representatives of any other profession. Ths oartfriBition of the n*r
house will be 13 farmers, 5 merchants,
5 lawyers, 4 journalists, 3 surveyors, 2
doctors, 1 brewer, and 2 professional
politicians—Norquay and Leacock. It
is worthy dl remark that every journalist who contested a seat "got there"

full of meaning to the expectant many who call for them.
There are other signs of Christmas
hovering around. The stores are
crowded, and the demand for fancy
articles besides those with which
Santa Claus gladdens littlo hearts
appears to be very . large. Some
efforts have boen made to give
a number of our stores a holiday ap-
. pearance, and they all appear to be
doing a rushing business. To-day a
large number of people are in from the
country ' securing their: Christmas
cheer; The pretty'custom of placing evergreens in front of the
shop doors hasheen followed by a
few, and the bright holiday appearance
which it giver the streets makes it
worth iibitating by all. With this delightful weather, an abundance of
good thiligs'and tho consciousness of
eing in a vastly improved position to
what vie were last'year, this should
indeed be a merry, Christmas in New

Education.
Editor Colombian. There is good
sense and sound reasoning in your ur-
tiole on a provinoial university. We
are not ready for it: that is, if we are
to have it on the usual basis and organization of a university. We can
all understand Mr. Higgins' Keal in
the matter. If a university is established now it must bu in Victoria. If
it be postponed tor h few years centres
and population will he so changed thai
it must not be in Viotoria. Mr. Hii*
gins is long-headed enough to see that
it is "now or never" for Victoria; .hut
he makes the mistuke of supposing
that, outside of Victoria the rent if ua
are long-eared enough to agree with
him, Manitoba is not a parallel oase
by any means. There'the different
religious denopti inat ions tyave wisely
agreed to support each its own college* and these affiliated together
make 'the ' Manitoba, tlniypwiiy.' if 1
we had thr aame conditions we might
even nr*. hnve a provinoial university.
Would it not bs a grand way to celebrate' our noble {|Uqcu's jubilee, in
British Columbia, for all tho religious
denominations by their represent a*
tives to meet together and orajanixe on
the sume basis as Manitoba a Queen's
Jubilea University ? It could be'done.
Your reference to the heavy item in
the tost of our education deserves immediate attention1.- The "cost of the
schools in existence is preventing the
attention, that should bo given to places
whioh j hsve no schools. You have
suggested one remedy:- -there ought
to be fues ehurged in our high schools.
Lut. me suggest another. The principals of, our city schools ought tobe
paid-equal salaries. At present those
of .the boys'schools receivo1; $100 a
mouth; while those of the girls1 schools
receive ,970. T*-.. course of study is
the name: ih both: the examination papers are the. same for teachers and pupils; tho results must be the .same,
it is a glaring injustice, Did the Same
conditions exist now as when the salaries were so arranged, I would say
"level up," not down. But the conditions aro vory different. Thon we
had. no high schools, and we required
teachers who could take high school
work for the advanced pupils; the expense of living was much greater; and
the difficulty of getting suitable teachers was greater. Now we can get the
best teachers for $70 a month; at least
good enough to do all tho work now
required, and to do it as well as it is
now dona. So that if we made 870
the highest salary in our public schools,
and $100 a month the highest in our
high schools, the work would bo no
less efficiently performed, and wo could
supply a number of other districts
without increasing the present cost.
Suggestion.
C. A. .Livingstone, Flattsville, Ont,
says: I hove much pleasure in recommending Dr. Thomas* Electric Oil, from
having Used It myself, and having sold it
for some time., In my own cose I will
say for it that it is the best preparation
I have, ever tried for rheumatism.

tyranny is by no means without a

it, there is no retiBon to doubt tho cur-

trabi-dmrti-y is this: ''On* one 'occasion

Humor in Children.
At what ago is a sense of humor
usually developed ? It very rarely exists in children under tWvo. The
funny things that small children say
are not funny to thom; tho, odd and
startling questions they ask have to
them no element of the incongruous.
It is usually only,when they lose the
faculty of making odd or deep observations that they begin to see any humor in them. Much of their apparent brightness comes, from ignorance
of th« truB relations of things. A
couple of incidents illustrate this. A
gentleman in Massachusetts who was
born for a soldier but had never the
opportunity to indulge himself in this
capacity was made a member of the
"i.verntjr's staff. Ho at once procured
a uniform tHat for gold and gorgeous-
noss surpassed anything erer seen in
the militia. Arrayed iu this dazzling
coBtume he called one evening at a
house to accompany a young lady to a
reception. The little girl of the family, who was above-stairs watching the
progress of her sister's toilet, ran to
tho balustrade and peeped over when
the bell rang, and saw thii Resplendent Being enter the hall.
"Who is it, Joe?"
" I don* know," replied the appreciative child, "I don' know, but I
thin* it ia God.";
Tho -other incident may be called
more 'subjective. A lady one day
drove to the house of a clergyman who
served a large parish, and of course
was sent for to attend funerals. While
bho carriage' was waiting, the coachman took up one of the children of
the family, a boy of three years, and
drove round the square. When he
was set down, the boy marched into
tho parlor, and, by way of acknowledgment, said to the lady, "Aunt Lu,

Sermon to Young Women.
pastoral and evangelical denunciations
against dancing and card-playing bad
hud such eilect that it was impossible
this winter to get up either a card
party or a dancing circle. In equally
forcible terms the preacher denounced
card playing, particularly progressive
euchre, love of dress, theatre going,
concert, ball, and skating rink attendance, urging that they were all roads
to perdition, and claiming that there
wero better gentlemen iu hell than
those who tauglit girls to play progressive euchre. He protested against
the vanity of tight lacing, and gave a
touching illustration of a girl who tied
the strings of her corset to a bed post,
in order to get a small waist, almost
killing herself in consequence. He
concluded with some admirable advice
to the girls as to their manner of choosing a husband.— Toronto Qlob».

DANCINC
Heroism of a Queenly Woman
It is surprising how little is required
to create a panic or collect a crowd.
A day or two ago a lady who would
fall in the elass known to amatory
poots as "queenly" sailed along that
part of State street that looks like a
dry goods store turned inside out at
the hour when ladies most do congregate in hot pursuit of " bargains. as
advertised." Her step wus majestic,
her face stony, and she looked into
vacancy like a man trying to mesmerize a mule by the power of his eye.
The mashers and slims who were
put on an inspecting tour noted her
expression, and weakly wondered if
she. were not laying for a man with a
rawhide concealed about her person.
'Ho* one could see the face and not be
struck by the drayload of anguish
she, to all appearances, had on board.
Novelists tell of dry, stony grief that
must either end in u burst of tears or
the madhouse. It was something of
this sort iu the face of the queenly
lady which caused tho pedestrians to
turn and stare. Aud yet she had not
just received news that her husband
bad fallen' duwn an elevotor shaft
without having his life insured, nor
she just learned tlint her brother had
abdicated his throne in some bank and
was now in Canndn, disgracing the
family by only stealing $10,000 when
he might have gotten away with, a
million.- It was not these. It was
worse. She had juat become aware
that her back hair was coming down.
What made the affair more calamitous
was that she was wearing Btore hair,
and the coupling pin being broken or
something, tt was coming out at its
collective root. She gave a grab ut
the back of her head, but her hand
stopped, in the neighborhood of her
shoulder. Then the struggle commenced. The effort to appoar unconcerned, if not happy, was badly back-
jenpped by a desperate desire to save
her property. Her hand was stayed,
but she held it in midair. Everybody
has aeen the eminent tragedian work
himself off a stage with that Blowish,
jerky, tired motion, as though he
were hung on wires and the property
man had forgotten to grease the gearing for some weoks past. The principal characteristic of this exit is the
weary effort of the Roman father to
plow up the ground with first one toe
and then the other. Noxt to a lingering death by poison, with, the family
stomach pump loaned to a neighbor
whose name cannot then be remem
bered, this is supposed to indicate the
rockiest situation on the American
stnge. This digression is made to illustrate the painful St. Vitus-dauce
action by which the queenly lady
dragged down her hand to its place of
forced ropose by her side. By this
time the rich, luxurious coil was trickling down her back,.
•*** Jimmy,- this woman's going bald-
headed," cried out a buy as the hair
dropped to the pavement. Tiio lady
sailed on with a si iff neck and never
made a sign. A young woman just
behind, who had not seen the accident,
caught a glimpse of the switch as she
was about to step on it, and, taking it
for a dead animal, screamed. That
brought a crowd rushing to the spot,
which soon swelled to sidewalk-blocking proportions. A rumor passed
around that a shoplifter had been
robbed. Some said it was a fight, but
the prevailing opinion was that a man
had fallen down in a fit. One old
gentleman who looked like tho pictures
caricaturists make in the humorous
papers to represent " Capital" was
very wroth, and condemned the police
right merrily for allowing a man to.
fall down and die in the streets when
he was taxed to maintain not only the
force but such things as patrol wagons.
At length a policeman shouldered his
way to the centre of the blockade. He
stooped down and gingerly picked up
the hair as though it were a grewsome
and uncanny thing. He held it aloft
and remarked:
" The gintleman wot dhronped this
will plaze stip foorward nnd claim his
whuskera."
The enthusiasm that lias marked
tho work of Mr. F. Schivorea in the
West Presbyterian Church, during the
past few weeks, shows no sign of di
minishiug. At the several services
held yesterday the church was overflowing with tlie great attendance.
This was particularly so at the afternoon service, whon Mr. Sohiverea's remarks were/addressed especially, to
young women, an unusually targe number of whom were included in his audience. | Mr. Schiverea said preachers
work often' found addressing young
men, but they seldom addressed their
remarks directly to young women, as
ho proposed to do that afternoon. In
his own peculiarly forcible language
the preacher then denounced the follies and frivolities common, as he contended, to young women. First, he
denounced novel-reading, because, he
said, it lod to certain ruin. If he
could have fiis way he would burn
evory novel in Toronto, Then lie
spoke of danfiing, and uttered a vigorous denunciation of it. He said
dancers -only danced because of tho
"huggSjil business." If a man attempted to hug his Wife or sister, he
would brain him. Of a thousand girls
