Thu universe) expectation of deliverance incarnated in the person of the
Dellfterer mentioned by classie historians was not hard to account for. Jews
everywhere dispersed sowed the seed of
sueh a hope. This was uot because
tbey were aggressively missionary, but
IniiiaiiBii Qentiles were so deeply miserable and despaired of tbeir horeditary
faiths. Slightest whisper of hope tiiv.l
thoae who ware not wholly dead to
hope. Aspiring souls, quit of uonvon-
tional forms, putting racial projudiiM
aside, were ready to share with He
brews thair brilliant Messianic vision.
To this order the Magi belonged. Thoy
proved their moral earuestncHs by In
stautly following tboir load. Oifle In
hand were material evidence of spiritual f si tli, Iheir certainty of- finding
and .the character nf the object of Ibeir
quest. .lurusalem,. capital of dowry,
was their natural goal—but Jerusalem
in turn was to be the crucible iu whieh
llioir faith was to lie furthur tested.
I est,nni uf finding a city iu rupture
uver the advent, thoy found a popularise sodden as nnt lo know there was te
lm any advent, and a hidcuus old tyrant
ready tu bathe his hands iu blood uf
his im 'ni rival.   When pointed lu n
straggling Judeau hernial us Ilu.' possible i'l-'. of Iho nativity, nothing
ii-umi ul, ili,-;, set out for it. Men whu
never dreamed of royalty,separate frum
a palace, found lbc object nf Iheir
quest in a hut. Instead nf gulden crib
and silken ranopy was swaddling clothes. Instead of court, twuAdiililcaii
peasants unly. In spile uf Irase tun-
ditions until triumphs. They pay the
Uuin the homage of a king. . •Tlp'ir
gifts lie ruyal. Admiration becomei
superlative when one reads how Ihey
eluded the Iduiiiiian, smin and murder
oue. They saved tha life of the young
king, of whose advent tbey hud unwil
imply become the heralds.
The Teacher's Lantern
The conduct nf the Magi shews thair
traits They were seekers fur the universal guild, earnest, persistent. Theirs
was no irrational enthusiasm following
an ignis faluus. There is a larger sig
nificence iu their deed. II is an acted
parable lo show lliu reality and desire

Tradition sayi there were three Magi,

After Mr. I'ugo bsil obtained ths

for some reason, paused by Ibis table

Why? Ilu had [dallied the camlli:,

Qui one thing was certain. I had
skirled the border of some secret, desperate enterprise. It challenged directly all my powers apd capabilities.
I was Irritated, nettled, riot at my Inability to fathom the mystery at once,

North Vancouver, B. 0 February 2, 1813.
In tbe several public disi'ussiinis uf
tliu I'eaee Biver Itailway project which
havo liuen held, the relative merits of
building the road as a government un
ilertaking or in tbe'form ol private enterprise subsidized liy the government,
were net formally debated as a pari
uf the scheme as favored hy thoae
meetings. Although these two phases nt
the .|iii ..nmi were rerlainly dealt Willi
le some extent liy several of thoae who
Innk active part in these ilisriissinns
they were net [iraeeed to the point of
the expression of any preference nf
unu ur of the other upon Ilie purl nr'
Ilie public,
No une whu has closely followed lhe
progress uf the public movement in fa.
vor of the ut' this rail
way will seriuusly dissent from the
statement that Ihere is a very strung
sentiment alima.l in favor uf a railway

ud by the government. This sentiment
is probably even •trunger un lhe Nnrlh
Hliure than elsewhere ami the cause
which lias predispoaed the local public
lu favur a government railroad may
frankly he staled as the conviction
that bas found lodgement in the minds
of those intereated in the welfare uf the

In addition, the floeiiiiel roiulilion

consideration at the hands of Ihu governmeut and the course whicii cum- itself as bust in thu light uf
the fullest information ami must ma
turn   . i.n on i,'ii,in   will   be   followed.
Implicit  sls'in,  in tbe sound judg
ment of Premier Mcllride and his ai|
ministration predisposes to the cnnclii
sion lliul thu plan adopted will be Ihu
wiser plan, ami lhal self same token
leads thu well informed citizen to conclude lhat the lluwe Bound, Hijuainish
Valley uud I'cmhertun Meadows route,
must in any case he the Inevitable
mule of lhe new railway.
Prom present indications, the record
of the preeent session of thu provincial
house frum tbe ■ standpoint uf legisla
lion, will entitle it lu lhe distinction
of being Ihu must momentous session
winch bus been held al any time during its history. The great importance
uf Ihe niuusures which will bu consider
as welltas Hie number uf Iho same,
ihinu tu render thu session uf llll'J
an epoch making event iu lhe bislury uf
provincial prugress ami development
Amid the many weighty matters cun
fuming which Icgialaliun will he en
acted, there is mine uf grealur inherent
Importance or which will carry with
mure far reaching results than the pru
posed lull with respect lu the adininis
Iration uf the forests uf the province.
The vital liiunii'iil of the forest pol
icy with reference tu Ilie general pros-
perilv uf the province waa strikingly
'portrayed by Mr. A. I'. Plumerfell in
ln« address u few days ago before Ilie
Canadian Club at Vaueouver. Mr.
Plumerfell was a member uf the Poreal
Commieeion which mil,milled a report
io the provincial government which
was declared lu he uf a general excel
leiice never exceeded aud sel,lum
equalled in Hie annals uf auch cum
miaaiona, an,I line likewise made a spe
cial atudy uf furest condition* over an
extended period. II .- utterances there
fore take rank as Ihoae uf a apecialist
un this great problem.
Mr. Plumerfell stated the poaition
in forceful manner in Hie following
"Hrilish Columbia's whole future
hinges upun Hie witoliim of her forest
policy I am forcei lu Ihe firm, de
liberate conn,Hon thnt lhe surcrss or
failure, Hie progress or stagnation, in
deed Hie very destiny ut II C. ia sn
interlaced with, ami, therefore nisepar
able frum our forest policy, that il rests
an,! ilependa upon it."
Ilia further development uf Ins theme
thus staled, shall with the furests as a
fumlamenlel neceaaily to provincial
welfare, uul only frum the standpoint
uf the timber supply, bill alsu becauae
uf their eascntial r/utiunsliip tu the
preservation and the perpetuation uf
Hie water supply. "Tbe Purest," he
declared, "is nature's reeervoir, tbe
only eourre, except tlio glacier uf regu
lar water supply, end it i* the regular
ily of supply thai i> the foundation of
musl human prosperity in e country
such as ours." This regular ami plenli
ful water supply was rleerly shown to
stand In vital relationship i„ require
inenta fur duineatic end civic porposes,
to industrial prosperity In providing
cheep power etc., tu agrn ullulnl devel
upment proNiding means of irrigation
fur farm produce, fruit raising end
stock, to our liberies by providing the
atreema 10 he frequented by salmon
fur lhe preservation uf the species end
tu olher liilerceta which contribute to
the general prosperity ead well being
of Ibe people. Viewed in lie eaacntial
features aa thus deliaeeted Ihere is
ample jiiNhlnaiion for the assertion
made above that the very destiny uf
J!riTiih Columbia rests and depends
upon our forret policy.
The grave lni|iortence, therefore, of
the forest leglalation Introduced in the
house l,y Hun, W. K. lioaa, Minister of
Lands, liecumre reedily epparent. Hear

Up lo the present, purchasers have been in lhe habil of
