would bo cunvcnienl, but not until

fedod audi excellent results. Ho do-

Ihis way had not labored in vain.
Tho work in whicli thoy bad joined
wus more than provincial mid hud
brought ad urns of whicli uny country might well be proud. Ureal
growth, development und industrial
progress were evident upon every
hand and upon u substmilial und
businesslike busis. Sometimes il
might bo felt that more might lw uc-
cotnpliilied l In.i was actually llie
case but tho fuel would be recognized Hull proper patience might to lw
exorcised, due satisfaction would be
felt for the advancement made and the
foundationa should he well looked nl-
Icr, that they were strongly laid and
deep. All were prone, perhapi, to
wish lo outrival up-lo-dato developments, but care should lw exorcised,
mil to overdo things, bul rather lo
wait patiently that lire results, when
attained, might lie complete in every
way. Because thc government was
conscious of iti responsibility it
preferred to move along cautiously
while proceeding expeditiously.

In thii instance the visit wui under
different auspices from that of two
years ago, inasmuch us on tbo former
ocoasion he wui tlie guest of tbe municipality at large, while on Tuesday
ol this week bo was the guest of honor at a ">iii|iIiid. ui,11 >. banquet given
by tho local Conservative Association
thereby according the oHiiant
an opportunity to become, acquainted with the premier in
another us|xict of his versatile per-
aonality. Two years ago ho showed
himself perfectly al homo in moving
amongst tlie cituens us the in.u citizen of his native province and ono
having deeply ut heart the potentialities, Ihe development and the welfare
of lititt.ii Columbia from (be standpoint of intelligent and loyul citizen-
ship, irrespective ol cluas, sect, party
or any other artificial claudication.
On Tuesday evening he wua unmiatake-
nbly the mun of alfuira, nut merely
the periouilicatiun of thoughtful, enlightened citueuihip viewing in u general way aud on broad principle! the
intorciti of thu province, but thu true
type oi militunt, aggix-asivo citiien-
ihip addressing himself with vigor to
discovering uud properly appreciating
the vast reiourcei uud poasiuilitiei ol
the propiuco whose progress he directs
unflinchingly confronting its difficulties, facing its issues, attacking ils
problems uml confidently ihuping iti
destiny. He wus u leader ol men with
a message to his iellows, with u plan
to submit, with u policy to outline,
wilh a record to defend, with un ml
,1111111.11 tit mn to champion and woll
and ably did lie respond lo every requirement of the situation,
Thc strong und compreheueivo speech
with which Premier Mcllride luvorod

Ihe eiiliie uddrou there wui never lor
sn initsnca tin slightest .uipicion ol
hesitancy. The ippakar wua not on-
daavoriug lo frunio a diplomat 1. da
liveiaa.e which H piii..1 ut every turn

ol deaths directly traceable to worry

aiciana know that these are by no
menus small. One constunt source of
worry and anxiety lor Ibe wage-earner

sufficient to provide the daily need..

suy notuhle tonnage was in sight, and
when be ssw ber Klrkwood's beart became buoyant witb hope, and be began
to tremble with nervous eagerness, for
be believed her to be tbe Aletbea.
There's no mistaking a ship brigan-
ilntt rigged for any other style of craft
that sails the Bess.
Voices approaching brought blm
back to shore. /Ie turned, resuming
bis mask of sanity, tbe better to confer witb tbe owner of the cottage and

chary of his words, aa be promptly

"I'll hire your boat," Klrkwood told
him, "tn put me aboard tbat brigan-
Hue off to leoward. Wa ought to start
at once."
Tba fisherman shifted but quid of
tobacco from cheek to cheek, grunted
Inarticulately and awung deliberately
on bia heel, displaying a ball neck
above a pair of heavy shoulders.
"Dirty weather," be croaked, facing
back from bia survey of Uie eastern
skies befors tbs Amerlcsn found out
whether or not be should resent bit
Insolence.
"How much?" Klrkwood demanded
curtly, annoyed.
Tbe man hesitated, scowling blackly
at tbe heeling veaael momentarily Increasing her dlatance from tba abort.
Then, with a crafty smile, "Two pun,"
he ih'• ■hired.
Tbe Amerlcsn nodded. "Very well,"
he sgreed simply. "Oat out you

The fisherman turned swsy to sbsm-
hie noisily over tba shingle, bugs
booted heela crunching, toward one ot
the dorlea. To Ibis be aet bis shoulder, shoving It steadily down tbt

Klrkwood looked back for the last

In the background Uie cabby loitered, gnawed by Insatiable curiosity.
The fisherman turned, calling over

had never lost sight ol ths trust reposal in thorn by the people.
The timber commissioners' report
was now in the hands of th. government and waa a splendid report. The

In the department of agriculture ei-
cellent work was being done for the

itioiiB which had been made. Splendid results were being attained in
growing fruits, roots and cereals. British Columbia fruit hail captured Iii..t

of thu world.
The public work, department bad

which would be a credit, under similar cundiliniiB, to any Country in f-'.ur

Surveyors Salter, Gilmour and Sin

trunks of trees then standing tbey
were able to state tbat the country ut

quote Salter*a own words I 'Almost

less remote, whicli awopt awuy the

it was formerly covered with pine and
