Certainly a genial manner, so long as
it is not forced, but ia tbe spontaneoiis
nutcome of a really genial nature, in
a great help to leadership, but it is
not all-important.
The absolutely vital condition of
leadership is lincerity. All the muling and handshaking in the wnrld,
ami all the friendly teas on the Terrace, and nil Ihe smiling salutations
in the Division Lobby are as dust in
the balance when weighed against
sincerity. Social charm may cooiist
willl a profound form of humbug, and,
as Oeorge Kliot lays, "there ii no
reason why a loud man should not he
given to concealment, unless it can
be shown that Holy Writ hai placed
tbe segt of candour in h     Mngs"
But a leader must believe in bb
cause with absolute conviction, if he
is to induce others to light for it; and.
unless his followers can rely nn his
good faith as one trusts one's weight
on rock, he may lind himself deserted
at a critical juncture.
Another essentia! of good leadership
li the love of fighting. Councils of war,
and stratagems, lind plots, and waiting
ou opportunity, and reliance on thu
chapter of accidonti, are ipcthods
which inspire follower! with ill-concealed or unconcealed disgust.
In enterprise of martial kind,
When there was any fighting,

A man whn would lead a political
parly, whether in ollice or in Opposition, must studiously avoid that illustrious example. sNni.crily, conviction,
loyally lo friends, a love of fighting, a
genial manner—Ihoie are come of the
qualities  required   for  leadership.
Anotber is Hie faculty, not as common as one would suppose, of recognising a follower. I myself have seen

Contrary to the usual practice the Assessment Notices for
1912 have been sent to the registered owners of properly
according to the Land Registry records.
Up lo the present, purchasers have heen in the habit of
notifying the city authorities lhat the property had changed hands
so that notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision die
city council is advised by ils solicitors lo recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements. .
The North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for properly
which it has sold and whicii has since changed hands two or three
Tlie Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from it that (hey should take steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent Ip them so that they may be
come aware of the value at which they are being assessed and
pay taxes as they fall due.

The intention of the provincial gov
1 nun,in to appeal to the people at an
curly dute whlcb was formally announc
ed by Premier McBride during tbe elos
Ing hours of .the session Just ended
I'lieiioi be said to have come upon the
public ss a surprise inasmuch aa It had
beon unofficially reported some time
previously and had been a favorite to
pic of discussion iu lhe newspaperr
for somo weeks past.
Tho decision of the government to
."i'l ml lo the country after the third
torejon of the legislature' is fully iu
accord wilh common practice and no
exception can possibly be taken lo the
step upou the score of procedure.
A largo amount of very important
legislation was passed during Ihe Ws
sion just closed ami the carryiug oul
of the policy laid down iu those incus
ures involves heavy responsibility. Thii
is true not only of tbe railway lull
passed by the house but alto With ref
erenee to the Forests Bill tnd other le
glslttlon, There is likewise, 1 grett
deal of legislation of tbe highest moment to the province (such aa tbe new
Itxttloa bill) which will ctll for ttteu
lion, in Ihe immeditte future. Under
these elnumsliucea it is perfectly reasonable lhat the government should con
•ider it wise to lay their whole policy
before Ihe peoplo in order that Ihey
may be relumed wilh tbe renewed con
seiousness of tbe confidence of the
electors of lhe province.
ll is likewise easily understood thst
view of the important interests in
procure absolutely all that was asked
was with reference to tbe right of the
city to purchase the landa of the Indian
Mission and even iu this instance the
information elicited, from government
circles was Midi as to convince the
mayor and tho eity clerk thai the best
interests of the city would he promoted
by leaving tbat matter iu Iho hands ol
the government for working out th>'
purposes whicii thuy at present havu ii
mind with reference to tho reserve.
The delegation, together wilh Bttvi
May, assisted by the alilo advocacy ol
II. II. Stevens, M.P., met with a favor
able reception from the Minister ol
Bailways, aud their representation'
with refurcuee to thu necessity of pro
tecting public interests in the mallei
of railway routes along the North Shore
were responded to by the minister witl
the assurance that in grantiug approval
to the route map of tbe C. 1'. II. he
would exercise every precaution to
ensure Ihe protection of the public along
Ihe lines indicated.
The results accruing from Ihe effort)
of Mayor McNeish and the City Clerk
wilh reference to Ihe sale of the ssrier
of debentures tuthorized by tbe rate
payers aro particularly gratifying. At
is goncrally known, the clly council
had been gdvised liy a very slrOng fi
uancial linn in Toronto that il would
nut be advisable to place the debentures
in question, upon the market uut il Ik
autumn. This placed the city face lo

as Ihe cily was depending upon the pro

best reasons fpr>nowte« that Mglllot
waa Innocent?
During the brief pausa In whlcb Dr.
pa Bwen cqolly  surveyed  him—(or
proper function—bu recovered something of bis equipoise.
"See hare, Doctor," be want on more
calmly, "1 am not familiar enough
with the procedure In—er—In criminal
cases tn know just what I want to say.
But Is the next step Imprisonment for
Mr. Maillot?"
"It Is,11 snipped tbe doctor.
"Thep I wilt go'ble bond-In any
amount; but he must not go—'1
"My dear sir," Dr. De Breen Inier-
rupted, with asperity, "a prlsonor under charge of lirst degree murder cannot be admitted to ball; not even by
tbe court having Jurisdiction it his
case, much less 1. The police are now
responsible for the young man's movements,"
He deliberately turned bis back upon tbe millionaire speculator, and
strode away. Years after that scene,
in. Ho Hi; .n I'liiiinM to mc Ihil
Fluette bad given bim the Impression
that be was hinting at a bribe.
The words, however, seemed to
strike Mr. Fluette like a physical
blow, He winced perceptibly, and his
face worked with agitation. But bo
rose splendidly to tbe occasion. In a
second or so his customary •commanding dignity returned, and his keen
Dance. He wheeled upon Maillot al
the Instant that much* distressed
young man was persuaded by dene-
vli'Vi- to'leave Belle's side.
"Maillot," said be, In a firm Voice,
"I sincerely regret any hard feelings
I may bave entertained for you In tbe
past. You are not only a courageous
young man, but an Innocent one, and
one, therefore, tbat Is being msdo to
suffer a grievous wrong. I wish io
say so here publicly; I wish, (oo, to
say publicly lhat I mean to seo Him
yuu have al your disposal th'.' best
legal iiileiii procurable."
Maillot's roceptlon of this offer was
pei'iilliir. He looked the man ol
money squarely in Ihe eyes lor an In
slant; then his lips twisted Into a
mocking lu'iilo. He nodded his bead
aver so allghtly, but the movemont
waa unmistakably a curt rejection.
"Thank you," he said dryly, his
voice low and oven. "But I Intend
getting out ol this scrape myself, Mr.
Fluette; I don't wish to occasion you
any future embarrassment. Please
don't mistake my meaninng."
Fluette mado no further cITort, and
It waa Impossible to determine Just
how tbe rebuff—It wu uo less—affected bim; he had blmsell well In
baud, now. He began preparallons
lor conveying home his still unconscious daughter, sud before they departed 1 contrived to have a private
word wltb Qeuevleve. Her face waa
very tragic.
"1 must see you alone—aa soon as
possible," I said hurriedly.
"I can't leave Belle," ahe whispered.   "Wbat Is it?"
"My flrat request from my llouleh-
snl," I cblded, smiling down at hor.
"Don'tI" sbe pleaded. "1 shall come
Where!   When?"
Dear me, no. I'll do the coming;
It's only 'when'?"
"To-morrow?" sbe suggested doubtfully. "You know, we 're all so upseL
And Belle—" Tho dear girl nearly
broke down. Yes, do come," sbe murmured tearfully, "as early as you can;
everything depends upon you, uow."
I caught her band. "Please doni
worry," I whispered; "everything will
come out right. I can't hear lo see
you suffer. Will eight o'clock bo loo
"I il not say 'Be brave,' for you 're
the bravest girl In tbe world; bul

She smiled wanly. "I aha'n't," sbe
Mid. "Qood-bye—Ull to-morrow mora,

Maillot now came over to where I
wea standing. He wu very pale, bis
lace wu drawn wllh llnea of suffering
(more (or Miss Belle ihun on bis own
sccount, beyond doubt), but his manner wu quite compoacd. In fad, his
demeanor waa more subdued—chu-
teiieil. as ll were—than I Jjud sceu It

"Well, It's over,"-he reuiarkojl b"'
"Don't be un us," I returned. "II

Ing me up.
"And If guilty, the worst Is yel to

"Not ni'i'i"I'uiily mine," I aald.

Notwithstanding bla pretence ol

ou a bit anxiously.  I grinned.
"I don't know." 1 said. "1 won't take

"Hot! You know I couldn't If I
wanted to."
"Mr. Fluette could liave helped you.
I looked at bim narrowly. He
shrugged bis shoulders, merely, and
produced and lighted a cigarette.
"Let's go," he said, lipping the
match away.
Stodger wu left on guard at Ihe
Page place. My prisoner and I walk, d
to a car and proceeded to police head-
His altitude, naturally enough, wu
ane of extreme dejection; nevertheless
I tried to cheer bim up vainly and
when opportunity offered I alao tried
to get tome light upon the ring episode.
"It doesn't do tor me to express an
«plnlon one way or another u to your
probable guilt or innocence, Maillot,"
I said at one lime; "but 1 can tell you
;hls much (or yonr encouragement.
"Since the murder, several develop
moots have turned up which convince
oe that there's a deal more In Ibt
trim than either you or I can at pre
sent conceive. You can keep It In

I did Immediately after qnbslng you
£nd Burke Wednesday morning 
y the way, lhat ring you slipped upon
your linger ibis iiwfiifiiu, wBosd'ls it?"
For a second he frowned wltb an air
of trying to recall the incident. Suddenly his lace cleared.
"Did you notice that?" be relumed,
with perfect composure. "It's mine—
waa my mother'! wedding ring."
I wH watching him Intently- He
met my regard with a level look.
"In tbe habit of wearing It?" I uked.
"See hero," I cam* to the point witb
abrupt directness. "You appreciate
quite u ipqcb as I dp the ilgnlflctuiie
of that broad band of gold on the middle linger of your right hand. Why did
you put It there at sucb a Ume?"
He sat silent
"You've become mighty oloie-
moutbed all at once," sharply urged.
He gave me a little balf-smllm and
glanced away.
"By advice of counsel I refuse to
talk," said be, quietly.
"If you are tbe couniel, you bave a
fool for a client—and vice versa," I
retorted.-"I suppose, too, tbat you refuse any assistance tbat I—"
Instantly bis usumed Indifference
"By no means," stopping mc wllh
considerable warmth. "It there's any
way out of ibis rotten mess It's you
that must get me out. My bands are
literally lied, now. And—Swift," bo
hesitated; his face clouded and bis
voloe suddenly dropped, "I—I simply
can't say anything more, old chap.
"So," I quietly observed, "you, too,
are worried about Fluette."
He started as If stuug.
"My Qod, Swlftl" be began, und
stopped, Ho sat staring at me a mom
ent in utter dismay, then bis disturbed
look wandered to a window.
"You're loo devilish sharp," ho mut
"Lucky for you tbat I am," retorted
1, cheerfully. "This Is a bad tangle
tbat wo'ro caught In, Maillot."
He said nothing more. By the Ume
we reached our destination he was prepared to enter philosophically upon bis
period of confinement, whether it
should prove long or Bhort. As I turned to depart I noticed tbat lio was
following me wltb a wistful look.
"I'll seo Ibat you are kepi posted
about the young lady,'.' I told him;
whlcb ellcllcd a deep sigh of relief
and a ferveni word of thanks.
Again I was preparing lo leavo him,
the turnkey standing by and Impa
tlenily jingling lhe ring of big braes
keys which was suspended from Ills
arm, when lbc prisoner clllcd me buck.
'He scorched my eyes earnestly.
"Swift," he begun, "as I said before,
I'm helpless now lo fight lor myself.

Then ihe heavy ateel door clanged

A Fight In the Dark
Alter the cell door closed upon
ItoyaJ Maillot I returned al once to the
house of tragedy, whose ovll geulus
was promising lo play havoc wllh lhe
lives ol so many of tbe living; and u
I approached tbe bleak, auslcrc old
n..n.i nm somelhlng in Ils silent and In-
anlmale citerior seemed to repulse my
advance up ihe gravel walk. My slips
lagged, aud at last I drew lo a hall.
('old aud clear and anappy u the
day was, still there wu something
oppressive jn Ihe air Ibat hung about
the house of death. I looked ai ihe
lifeless windows. Blaring vacantly,
utterly expressionless of lbe swift
moving tragic drama thai bad been
onacled behind them, falling lo foreshadow what wu yel lo iransplre
hero, they all at onco brought forcibly
to my mind Aleunder Burlui. Thus
did bla eyes hide, Instead of disclose,
the workings wllhln.
That the mind of this man was secret snd evil I could uow no longor
doubt. Fells i'sge bad been a sower*
lul man, physically and mentally; yel
Alexander llurke. sly and Implies e,
soft-spoken apd sofWooled, ever alert
and observant and burrowing lik. a.
molo, In darkness, bad undermlucd
him, and—tbe conviction grew—bad
brought abotjl His cruel death.
In what way? What far-reaching
machination wu be ao laboriously
evolving? Wbat snaro wu he cuilng
unaeen to bring down In ruin Uie Urea
of others! And wby? Coward ibat he
wu, bad he at no Ume worked in iho
broad light of day?
An unwelcome aense of depression
WU sluv.,}' weighing me down. It.waa
m It lbe silent bouse were haunted.'
At the Ume, i wu convinced lhat I
wu merely making a hodge-podge of
the hundred and one clews lhal bad
come to mi bands, though now I know
that lhe whole vul soheme wu gradually taking shape In my mind. I wu
bewildered by lbe wide diversity of unopposed interest!, left powerless by
failure to light uoon a sure point of
common Interest defining the AtUUides
of the different actors, ror to say lhat
It wu lhe ruby did not clear Uie fog
any—unless I accepted the growing
assurance that Alfred Fluoiie wu 'he
acUvfc Initrument of death.
Sllll, every detail I bad gathered
wu necessary to complete Uie circle.
When dnally I did bav* my case all In
bind there wu no single point tbat remained oUcuro.
My brooding Inertia wu dlapelled by
a shout from Stodger. He wu stand
Ing oo the front porob. regarding me
with oonajderahle ouriqirtty.

NQTICH Is bsrehy ,

I soon learned that he bad something of interest to report.
"Wit knpw. Bwlft/' said he, wttft
much seriousness, extending bis chubby hands to tho welcome warmth of

I was Instantly all attenUon. Qene-
vlove's terrifying experience wis top
recent and real for me to scout any
supernatural suggestion of my col-
league.   I quickly uked:
"Been anything aout the house?"
"Not (p bere. Outside. Copldn't
chase 'em-"
"I'm glad you aro fat, thep; who
would havo watched tbe bouse while
you were chasing whatever It was you
thought you saw?"
He olapped one hand on top of bis
bullet of a head, and stared at me Ip
comical surprise.
"Sayl You're right, Swlftl You
are, by Qeorgel first time I ever
found A—ah—you know—a consolation
for my—er my—my stoutness,
"Two shadows. Didn't get to see 'em
plain, All tho time you were gone I
could glimpse 'em now and tbon—flrat
one place, then another—slipping and
sliding through tbe bushes, trying to
keep hid, y' know.'1
As may be Imagined, I wu profoundly Interested. ,
"Wbat did they look like?" 1 asked.
Stodger shook bis head. "Bushes
too thick. No leaves; but they wouldn't come closo enough for me lo get a
good look. Min. Watching the bouse,
all right"
The mailer wu serious euough, In
al) conscience Our Incessant vigilance wu most certainly Justlded by
iho perUuaclly of these mysterluus
prowlers, for u long us they surreptitiously sought to enter tbo houso, my
belief lhat the ruby lay hid somewhere

The orderly precision of Jesus' movements is well Illustrated in the fact
that He did not emorgo from private
life until imprisonment closed tb; car
oer of His forerunner. Oalilee, from
ite frontier poaition on B commercial
highway, was more independent of cur
rent oceleslaAiciim, and consequently
more apt to recoive the QoBpol., The
wisdom of Josus in the choice of the
sceuo of His earliest preaching is ap
parent.' On comparison of the evangelists there seems to have heen a gorier
of progressive calls to the Apostolatc
A first call, after wbicb there was n
dimission to their old environments,
whore, free from tho novelty of tboir
now mission, tbey might review what
Ihey had seen and heard, Tho second
call was not, therefore as abrupt as it
would appear from tho narrative. By
it tbe apoatles were permanently attached to tbe porson nf the Lord. The
third call was the fornjal induction
into the apostolic college. Tbeso four
were always the most closely attached lo His person of all Jesus' apostles.
Tho mention of hired sorvants and
John's acquaintance, wilh the high
priest would rather indicate thai Zo-
liedec was a man of position, influence aud possibly of wealth, The
triplo office and superlative industry uf

Ho taught, He preached, He healed. The
