The next leller read by Mr. Delmas
was very brier and was written by
Thaw after reaching New York.
"Dear Longfellow," lt read, "Enclosed find check.   Sen d  a $10 bill

The next letter contained these
words
"Slept seven IiourB. Saw many Pitts-

The tone of the letter was most de-

It was evident from this letter
which was sent lo Attorney Longfellow
to be delivered lo Evelyn Nesbitt, thnt
It had been written subsequently to
the Interview with Ihe girl nt Ihe Hotel Navarre after their return from

At this Intervltw the girl told him of

PERSONALSKETCH
Governor Swettenham in
Public Eye
ALL ARE ALIKE TO HIM
Remarkable Career of Public Man
Who Has Antagonized the
American Republic.
New York, Feb. 8���No man ls more
completely In the public eye at this
moment Ihan Sir James Alexander
Swettenham, governor of Jamaica.
Sixty-one yearB old, with the physical energy and vigor of a man of 30;
six feet tall, muscular, commanding.
Imperious, a ruddy face, steel-gray
eyeB, keen as a hawk's. There you
have Sir James Alexander Swettenham,
governor and commander-in-chief of Jamaica and its dependencies. This man
haB been a fighter all bis life. He
served his apprenticeship to the British
colonial civil service ln Ceylon and
Cyprus. A raw clerk, be worked quietly when other men were busy with ten*
nis racket or idling In the clubs.
In Cyprus be followed the same line
of action, studying the people, getting
near to them, striving to feel with
their feelings, think with their thought.
He was feeling for a method, striving
for a system. And when bis chance
came be bad found both.
When, eome 14 years ago. he became
colonial secretary of the Straits Settlements, with his brother, Sir Frank
Athelstane Swettenham, as governor-
in-chief, the Straits Settlements were
a burden, financially and In every otber
sense, to the llrlllsh government Tbe
country was undeveloped; Ihe natives
were unhappy and discontented; commerce was a negligible quantity, and
gloom in the minds of the people and
the government alike. Tbe 8wetten-
hanis changed all that. Finding that
the natives could not be persuaded to
work, they determined to |e��ch tltem
by another method. Tbey imported labor from the neighboring Hritish stales,
set about road making, railway construction, tbe establishment of towns.
tbe development of trade, the creation
of a popular reliance ln sympathy for
British doggedness, determination and
capacity to achieve. When he left the
Stya|ts Settlements to become governor ot British Guiana the country was
being rapidly developed, trade was
flourishing, towns were springing up
everywhere, the people were beginning
to take a pride in action, and the colony not only showed a handsome yearly surplus but made itself unique by
contributing, alone among all the colonies of the British empire, to the revenue of the crown.
ln British Guiana he met a task
worthy of his powers. The negroes,
who constitute the great bulk of the
population, were Incensed against the
planters for importing coolie labor.
Tbey were disinclined to comply wltb
lhe requirements of the education
code; they were determined lo make
trouble. Alexander Swettenham put a
stop to all lhat. He told Ihem thai,
since they declined to work on the
sugar plantations, upon which the commerce of the whole colony depended,
they must be content to let the coolies
work, snd since tbe sugar Industry supported them all, tbey must pay their
Bhare of the cost of immigration. He
devised a new education code, which
hn put in force, and which he compelled them to accept. He condemned
them for their Inertia, shamed them
with fiery words of scorn for their lack
of self-respect, and taught them bow
they might make themselves a power
in the land.
Once, when a negro village was flooded and the villagers thought they
should be paid for digglnng the drains
to save their village, he leaped from
his horse, lashed the bystanders with
words of contempt and, seizing a spade,
worked for an hour In Ihe trench until
it was completed. Tbey took the lesson to heart and did the necessary
work to protect their village without
delay.
He was never a respecter of persons.
One day a "big gun" went to government house to argue with him about a
certain meaaaure he was engaged in
drafting for the consideration of the
local legislature.
"If you do It that way you will hurt
ub," he said.
"And who are you that you should
not be hurt if the mosses of the people will benefit?" thundered the governor. "Go away, Bir; go away, and
���nark me, I am governor here, and I
govern for the people, not for selfish
mloyitles!"
When the news of the Martinique
cataclysm reached B rltish Guiana, the
legislature was not sitting, and its
members were scattered all over the
hundred thousand square miles of tbe
colony. Swettenham did not hesitate
an Instant. He chartered a steamer ly
lag In port, bought the entire cargo of
an American flour boat, despatched It
With a letter of credit on the colony
for (10,000 to the suffering people of
Fort de France���and then summoned
tbe legislature. There was some protest mi the part of the native members
of tbe legislature, but wben he threat
��ned io pay for tbe provisions himself
Ihey Abandoned tbelr opposition and
the bill was paid.
As it protector of the common people
Swettenham has bad no equal In the
reeorf. of tbe West Indian governorships. He discovered, on his arrival in
Brills! Guiana, that the coolie Immigrant j.omen were being made the vie
tims i, the planters and the estate overseers. Several of the most prominent
planters, leaders ln tbe society of tho
colony, were guilty. He warned them
by circular and by public utterance.
They took po notice.
" They had not gauged their man. He
promptly took up the case of one of
Ihe worst offenders, took away every
coolie from the estate under this man's
management, and notified the owners
and attorneys of the estate that tbe
coolies would not be allowed to go back
as long as the manager remained ln
charge-. The proprietors took the matter into court. The courts upheld the
governor and the proprietors appealed
to. the colonial office. While the appeal
waB pending, a deputation of planters
approached the governor and threatened n. make things so bot for him if
he did not give way lhat he would be
compi'-fted to resign. He heard them
oul and then h turned on Them and
said'.
���'Gentlemen. I hold my commission
from the king. The king ordered me
to gn��-d the interests of his subjects
here. 1 am the guardian, tn the king's
name, of every coolie man and woman
hi this against thes epeople. I warned
you to desist. Vou have defied me.
Now you thraten me. But I'll make you
nil an example ye! Go home and try
and be men!"
The colonial office upheld the action
of the governor, declared that be had
acted In the Interests of the people.
In Jamaica, which he haa governed
for three years, Sir Alexander has re-
organt-r. -the financial resources of the
island, purged tbe local civil service
of Idlers, Improved the educational
svstem and wakened the people up.
When It was proposed to Import Jamaica negroes to work on the Panama
canal, he refused point-blank to let a
single man go unless the United States
government would lodge a cash guar
antee on account of each negro sent to
Panama, to provide against their being stranded and their families becoming a burden on the Jamaica public.

Prestige and Power
GRIM AND SERIOUS WORK
Attorney   General  Walton Says:
"liberals  Entering on a
Strenuous Campaign*"
London, Feb. 8.���The attorney general. Sir John I.. Walton, who presumably
spoke with full knowledge of the In-
tentions of the government, made an
important declaration (n a speech at
Leeds |ait night forshadowlng the government programme ror a reform of the
house of Lords.
In his remarks the attorney general
Bald that the "grim and serious work"
upon which the Liberals were entering "would mean a revolution and Involve two or three dissolutions" He
admitted that the bouse of lords was
entirely "cuf of barmony with modern
democratic Institutions and must go,"
The government would endeavor to
give effect to the win of the people
by blllB which Iiie house of lorda would
probably throw out, leading lo a "oom-
bination of the crown and people to
defeat the aristocracy,"
Attorney General Walton recognised
that the struggle would be prolonged
and exciting and would mean a complete rearrangement-of th constitutional and political forces,
TRANSPACIFIC IMMIGRATION.
Necessitates   Added    Terminal   Facilities at Vietoria.
Winnipeg.. Feb. 8.���Immigration to
Canada from trans-Pacific countries
has Increased to such an extent during the past year that the facilities for
handling the Immigrants at Victoria
have became utterly Inadequate to the
amount of traffic bandied.
ThiB announcement was made by J.
Obed. Smith, commissioner of Immigration, wbo returned last night from a
three weeks* sojourn at the coast city.
While there Mr. 8mith made arrangements for the consolidation of all the
different Immigration offices in one
large building, similar to the Winnipeg
Immigration ball.
Victoria's new immigration hail will
be located near tbe outer wharf, where
the steamers arrive, so that Immigrants
may be easily disembarked. The old
Bite waB not large enough for the purposes required and a piece of land ad-
Joining has been purchased. Tbe bail
will not be as large as tbe Winnipeg
building, but will contain medical inspection and detention rooms, also a
main hall.
Victoria is the first port of landing
for immigrants from all parts of the
Orient, and the arrivals there during
the last year or two have almost
doubled.
Mr. Smith thinks that the influx
of Winnlpeggers to Victoria and other
coast points has been the cause of a
great appreciation of real estate values, and looks for a wave of prosperity
nt the coasr during the coming year.
BARNACLES ON SHIP.

Boston, Feb. 8.���The following petition from the unmarried women of the
town of Wakefield was received by the

DIVIDED OPINION.
French Press Not a Unit on Government Measures.
Paris, Feb. 8.���The newspapers of
the extreme Socialist-Republicans today hail the cabinet's incoming measure ss being a great reform and as
testifying the democracy's confidence
in tbe government. Tbe more moderate Republican papers are less enthusiastic. The Republic de Frnncnise
thinks lt ls "quite as inequitable as the
old royalist system, as It simply shifts
ihe privileges formerly enjoyed by the
richer to (be poorer classes."
The Bclalre believes that the measure will drive French capital abroad
and that foreign bankers will be the
gainers. The Gaudois charges Finance
Minister Calllaux with hypocrisy and
lack of courage ln nominally exempting
rentes. The royalists' organisation are
hostile to the new taxes, fearing thai
the ywlll become an Instrument

EXTENDING FACILITIES
C. P. R. Will Shorten   Route   te   the
Orient���Survey    Partiea   Are   Already in the Field.
Victoria, Feb. 8.���There can be little
doubt that the C. P. R. intends to expedite the extension of the E. ft N. line
to deep water on the Alberni canal,
following out the policy contained In
the announcement made some time ago
by Sir Thomas Shaughnessy that a
port of call for Empress liners would
be established on the West coast of
Vancouver Island.
Already survey parties are In the
field. The Instructions Issued to the
chief of the staff is to path the work
forward ps fast as possible, providing
for the extension of the E. ft N. to
deep water on Alberni canal. This ls
being done ,and Frank Shepherd, the
engineer In charge of the party, has
already located a route across the
Beaufort range, west of Cameron
lake. It is more than probable that
the route selected will be along the
shores of Cameron lake, although an
alternative route is availabl by way
of Home lake.
Along a spur running out from the
Beaufort mountains on the east side
affords a good opportunity tor making
an easy ascent. It Is possible by taking this to get a grade nowhere exceeding IH per cent to where the summit is reached. The descent on the
other sld of the range can be made easy
by making a circuit away from the
wagon road. Deep water can be reached at New Alberni townsite, some miles
from the head of ehe canal.
It ls reported that the C. P. R.. Intends to begin work on tbe extension
of the Une early this summer. At the
present time another survey party is
working from the Comox valley ln the
direction of Alberni to connect with
the line from Wellington to deep water on the Alberni canal. The party ts
working on the shores of Comox lake.
This section of the road offers little
difficulty, it ls believed.
Th C. P. R. liners, by steaming Into
Ihe Alberni canal, would be able to
land mall and passengers desiring a
quick despatch. ' The railway line
would convey them quickly to some
point on the east coast of Vancouver
Island, presumably Nanaimo, and from
there a fast passage by special steamer would shorten the time very materially. The liners would be delayed
-some hours in reaching Victoria and
Vancouver with the freight and passengers who were not tn any particular
hurry, but an advantage would be gamed In time with the malls.

Splendid Victory  of  McBride   i\
Healthy Sip of tbe rimes���
Federal Interference Rebuked.
Winnipeg, Feb. 8.���J. J. Young, owner of the Calgary Herald, who is in the
city on his way Irom the East, in speaking of the result of the British Columbia elections, said:
"i regard Premier McBrlde's splendid
victory as the healthiest political sign
of the times since th edefeat of Sir
John Macdonald's government over the
Pacific scandals. The lesBon the Con-
Bervstive party got at that time it remembered and profited by for nearly
18 years, until It was again turned
down by tbe electorate, not for corruption, but for the Incapacity of its leaders to lead. Though the Liberal party
in the Dominion has now held office
for only ten years, it has arrived at a
stage snch as was never in Canadian
history* reached by any Conservative
administration.
"In Alberta and Saskatchewan, by an
indecent distribution of patronage and
an Ingenious dangling of senatorial and
other fat offices, the Liberal machine
succeeded tn cajoling the pople of the
new provinces Into voting away their
heritage, and t he other day, aided by
on army of 'workers' and carpet-baggers of the Dnncan Marshall type, It
persuaded the electors of Gleichen to
reject W. L. Walsh, a gentleman whose
oonaplcoous ability was badly needed
In the Alberta legislature.
"The stifling of local opinion by such
methods and the braxen Interference by
the Federal machine In provincial affaire ls one Of the oust baneful results
of Liberal rale. It is time lt was stopped, and the people of British Columbia on Saturday set a healthy example
to the rest of the western provinces by
indignantly and unmistakably resenting it."
BREAD MADE OF STRAW.        *
Recipe fer "Hunger Bread" Eaten by
Starving Russians.
Moscow, Feb. 8.���The but number ot
the Agricultural Messenger contains an
article on the so-called "hunger bread"
of the starving peasantry, and gives directions for its preparation from���
straw.
This remarkable recipe runs as follows: Rye, wheat or beaten straw will
do, bot the last Is the best where procurable. A few knots of the lower end'
of the straw should be cut away, and
the straws sorted to eliminate weeds.
After this t hey are cat up in lengths
Of about halt an Inch and washed In a
sieve. The washing should be done In
running water, or by continually pouring water over tbe sieve rested on the
edge of a well. This is not only to
clear away dirt and dnst, but to remove aa tar aa possible the rusty spots
on the straw. After the straw has been
drained, It must be laid up to dry in
the sun and Is then ready for use.
Good bread ls made by mixing thin
straw flour, half and half, with any other kind of flour and baking tn the ordinary way."
Th paper goes on to explain that
for children and sick persons straw
bread Is unsuitable, but If "made palatable with a little skim milk may bo
given even to the sick when It la on-
avoidable."

POLITICAL COMPLICATIONS.
Tbe position of the opposition in relation tn ihe prs'sieni political Bltuation
Is, to say the least, peculiar. Evidently
word hmi been Benl out from Ottawa to
expect a Libera] vlotory In llrltinh Columbia, and the Liberal forces have not
yel recovered frnm their disappoint-
in-ni. Tii,. capture or ilm country l>>
th.* machine was n foregone oonolualon
uml iimi the resuli lins boen ti failure
has heen inie ,,1 tin- Isiiieresi disap
P'sliittiienis of Uie Oitawa operators,
v.'lmt to do next is the Question which
is evidently pusfllitg t in - managers,
The retirement of Mr, Mclnnes to the
shades of n legal practioe In Vancouver
is only om* of the methods of blinding
thc public wiih whioh 'he machine le
only too accustomed. That he will be
discarded and left to hi? own resources
Is only to he supposed by those who
are unfamiliar with the methods of the
���Rreiit combination of wheels which
have made Liberalism a baneful power
in thc Dominion during the lasi decade.
The province of Hritish Columbia
hats: happily been saved from entanglement with these matters by the return
of the McBride administration, and it
Is to the credit of the country thnt
whatever may have been said as to the
alliance between the McHrlde government nud lhe Soclalisi members of the
bouse there run never lie charged any
Compromise between the premier uml
bis Liberal opponents. Party lines
have been us stroiiKly drawn liy lhe
premier and hla followers un by the op-
[os-itiuis and there baH beon no attempt
al deception by either side.
By the premier's return to office lt
lias been maile known thai the country
stands for the traditions of the Conservative party. While Ihi re sue periods
ot transition ami political change, during which times many pei sons are undecided as to where they belons politically, it may be said that Hritish Co
luniliia is sotting an example for all
Canada in its return to the political
traditions which have made the whole
Dominion what it is. The policy originated by Sir John A. .Macdonald and
which has lieen followed with more or
less persistency by every responsible
minister since llle dnys of the power
of that lamented statesman, is the poi-
Icy which is being revived in Hritish
Columbia by the McBride ministry, and
which promises for this oountry u future which is as yet unanticipated bj
any but the most sanguine.
Th;. government is now free to pus-
sue the traditions of the parly hy which
nssiii" ii is called. The significance nf
the vote of tlie last election may not
be fully realized until the governmenl
lakes In hand the task of promoting
and exploiting ths. platform oi' its traditional party, Hut thai the governmenl
will lull to do lliis is nol lo he supposed. The Wesi is fecund ami in iis
nallve sons represents the character of
its soil and of Its climate. There is n
sturdy Independence that is peculiar to
itself and lhat this i.s and will be as
manifest in its pollttoal developments
as Otherwise win soon become apparent The traditions which have made
other provinces called hidebound will
not affect the free and Independent
spirit of the Pacific Coast an dthe prov
Ince of Hritish Columbia will continue
tn distinguish itself as ths- originator
of measures that will lead In the economic ndvances of the day.
Conservatism in Ontario and in Manitoba has shown Itself to be full}
abreast of the times and of the advancing sentiment of the public on all
(inestlons which affeel public progress
and we mny well feel assured that In
British Columbia the traditions of the
grand old party which has always stood
at the front in the march of progress
will not be in any sense betrayed.
While It would he unwise al this
siage to anticipate the measures whicli
will be Introduced liy the government
nt lhe early session of the house, those
wbo know what the Conservative party
stands (or will not be at all Inclined
to heslitate ln their expectation of pro-
Sn nuicii bus been made of ths- move.
ment of American citizens toward Canadian territory and so much self-
glorification has been Indulged in by
ilie Oitawa governmenl on this account
ilini li is nm surprising iss have tin-
facts Investigated, Tin* Philadelphia
Ledger publishes some comparative figures which gis io show that the boast
nil success of thc Laurier administration is. after nil. mine a matter of
lioast than ol fuel.
Tin' Ledger charges that our officers
docii.r tin* I'lsun-s. nml adds: "There
is high authority inr ihe statement
that from 1SU7. when the Canadian
movement began, only 02.717 citizens
ul lhe United States, of both sexes
und all ages, have been officially re-
poited as entering tlle Canadian West;
and, as many of these departed, it is
now estimated that there are in all
Canada, wesi of Lake Superior, no
more than M.OUii male persons who
ivere originally American ciiUens." It
is mentioned incidentally by tlte Ledger that during the whole or last year
ists.ouii immigrants entered Canada,
und when this number is contrasted
wiih the 1,1011,71)0 foreigners who
sought permanent homes in tlie United
Slates the republic has no reason to
be jealous. On tins point It cannot he
forgotten that Slfton's Immigration figures gave us between 1900 and 1906 a
very large addition to the populaiton
ol the West. When, however, the census
of 1H06 was tuken It was found that the
Increase In the population was not so
great as tbe figures of Immigration
would lead us tn expect. Some 100,000
people reported ns having nrrlved were
missing, nr. at nil events, were not ae-
cnimieil I'm* in the census. This dis-
covory gave color to the theory that
the Laurler government had been Issuing lying returns for the purpose of
excusing its huge expenditure under
ilie head of Immigration. The entire
ltiimigr.ilIon system, ii Is very clear,
requires Investigation. That it is n
neat of robbers there is reason to fear.
We had one proof or this in the North
Atlantic Trading company "Kraft," un-
ilei which some unknown men. whose
nnmes cannot be mentioned lest they
commit suicide, have been pocketing
$n for every Bnropean immigrant re
ported as arriving on these shores.
This roguery emphasizes the fact that
we have In tin' United States an army
or politicians, or ol' relatives of politicians, living upon the service and
doing nothing in particular for the
country.

"The record of the year HiOfi in banking circles bas beaten all former years.
Tin- bunking business, of Canada show-
ed an Increase in loans ami -discounts
or from 1600,000,000 to over $701,000.-
oiiii as compared with tin- previous
year. As this business is nearly all in
connection with the Industrial expansion of the oountry it reflects the great
activity in trade ami commerce which
exists III lhe Dominion. The deposits

rather less ihan $7,000,000 in ihe corresponding month of 1906, The total

greatest nu record.
The chief advantage In publishing
these records is in keep vividly before
tin- minds oi' Canadians the Immense
prngress their country is making, so
thai ihey may lay their islinis unsl sli
rect their tinterprises with ss due real
lzminn ol' th.* opportunities that are
now being afforded to grow up jwlth
the oountry. Taking mn- population,
nut* resources In their preson suite of
development, t li.- aggregate wealth of
this country, nnd Its fairly otiuable distribution, there does nol seem any gond
reason why every man who has his
health ami is fairly Industrious Bhould
nol achieve the ambition of corraling
enough means to make him modestly
independent In his declining yenrs. And
this without in any way discounting the
linigniticeiii promises s.i lie* near

EDITORIAL COMMENT.
The Liberal press Is very much exercised tn know in advance what ls to be
the program of the government. Anxious to Jump ai the throat of the legislature on any and every question, Its
Impatience is unrestrained. Instead of
anticipating wholesome legislative work
ami preparing to share In the honorable effort to pass necessary measures,
thi' policy pursued by the opposition
through tin- last three sessions Is to be
continued, Ii is the measure of the
men who wonld he statesmen.
The benefit concert to he given by
the city hand deserves the fullest ap
preciatton of the public. The hand
has struggled hard with financial em-
barrassmentBi bui bus pluckily held
lis own. The concert is nol in the nature of an appeal for charity, as the
hand proposes tn place an entertainment quite equal tn anything nf Its
cuss.    There shnulil  lis- liberal  patron'
age.
Th'- Trnnto Qlobe says: "Nelson, II.
C, has n municipal lighting plant In
operation. Municipalities an. slowly
learning thai lhe company Is the
greater evil in operating public services." ls the Globe as well informed
on all other matters which concern the
West ?
Blessed be tin. man who rirsl Invented work. Not too much nor too little,
bul work; and after work blessed be
the man who Invented "Nature's sweet
restorer���balmy sleep."
Tho country seems to feel pretty
safe as to what McBride will do, bul
ll wns uot quite so sure ns tn what
Macdonald would have done.
"What will McUride do?" i.s un easy
way of throwing dust Into the eyes of
the people as to whnt he hns already
done.

Have Made ��� Vutt Change In Unlvlra.l
Oplnlan of Canada,
Toronto, fab. 8.���The banquet given
at the National Club by the members of
llie Toronto branch or the British Empire Leacue to Dr. 0. R. Parkin, late
principal of Upper Canada College, was
most successful, u large number being
present. Mr. J. M. Clark, K. C, pre-
aided, having on his right the llonton-
lint-governor, nml on his left the gueBt
of Ihe evening.
The lleiitenanl-governnr. In replying
to tho toast of his health, saiil be was
di'llglned to he present lo do honor to
Dr. 1'nrkiii. whose departure was a distinct loss lo Canada. He proceeded to
add that Dr. Parkin was,, though, now
able Ut give English people more accurate Information about Canada, and
to enlighten their ignorance about us.
Dr. Parkin, on rising io speak, was
most cordially received. He first referred to the greal changes which had
taken placo during the past eighteen
years in the minds of the other colonies respecting Canada. In 168*3 he
hod made a trip round the world, and
two years ago he followed the same
route, and he was astonished at the
great development of opinion which
manifested Itself on his later tour respecting this country.
There was a change in the mint) of
Canadians, too; there had been a great
growth of national spirit, an assurance
of a great and prosperous future, whicli
nothing short of some appalling national calamity could possibly arrest.
It was a great thing to be a resident
of such a great country, while he at
the same time warned bis hearers that
nothing could do Canadians more harm
than undue inflation, boastfulness and
commercial kite-flying. "Don't gel
swelled heads," was the speaker's
advice.
If foreign countries, If the other colonies, could say of Canadians as the
llrltlsh in Hong Kong can say ol the
Chinese merchants: "Their w.ord is as
good as their bond," it would do more
"to promote true Imperialism than all
our Cobaltn"
Speaking directly on Mr. Chamber
Iain's propositions, he laid he though
they had been sprung on the people loo
suddenly, lhat though he felt sure of
iheir ultimate -acceptance, yot he
thought Mr. Chamberlain had been too
eager in the firet place.
Dr. Parkin predicted that the great
Imperial problem of the fulure would
be South Africa, where the blacks in
