tWEATEST OP ALL TONIOS
when the' Culunibi-.iii and Western land
'^raiilthiinble.-iiggin-*- was oxposuil, biit
:l>c attempt of the. present government
to take from llie legislature, the right-
to pass on land granted to railways, by
thoBiibstituiion of a"go-beiweot."and lo
keep the affair a secret long,enough to
allow of favorites to take advantagi
i.'f the situation, makes the <'50!5, 4594
nijjhtinare take on an air'of respectability, especially when it is remembered that the people behind the Columbian and Western deal, had a keen
etiou*-h eoiiso of deereucy to keep * foreign contractors and petticoats out of
tho muddle. The government supporters in Ihu legislature seem lo view this
piece of, trickery .with, complacency,
and i*o oii supporting it with whatever
appearance of faithfulness, (heir over
taxed consciences will permit.
Meanwhile our Fernie representative
is too busy with hia arduous task of
confining lhc scopo of the, enquiry bo-
in-.' made hy his committee into this
Larson I.od'well-Ainlersnii family affair,
to as tin now limits as possible, to spend
any time looking after Ihe interests bf
bis couiiiUioiicy until at last his
•staunchest supporters have taken to
letter writing, and are charging him
wilh being entirely too subserrient to
tin', will of lhe government to 'beof any
use to them. It is intimated that they
have called his attention to tlie fact
that his effortsto secure any return
from the government .for the vast
amount ol revenue poured into tho
provincial treasury " from the Fernie
district have proved barren ol rcoults,
while adjoining districts represented
by opposition members and, which do
uut produce nearly so much revenue,
are getting libraries appropriations for
buildings,'etc., that naturally belong to
this district.
Our member has gone down to Vic;
toria each year proclaiming from the
house tops that lie is an unqualified
supporter of the government, itnd has
each year returned to Feruie without
needed appropriations, but full of
promises for tho future, until his own
party supporters have become disgusted with his course and are calling him
down.
1 To call tho present government at
Victoria, a government of thc people,
for thu people and by the people would
be tbe wildest kind of fiction. With
eight conservatives and threo socialist
members-sitting in the house represent
ing minority votes iu their constitution-
cies and a shiflly government kept*
constantly on the watch to keep off the
rockf, we Jiro us near lliirlesquing pop-
ularKoverunieut as i.i possible to go and
■keep np-tlie-merest-shadow-of-a-seui'-
bianco to parliamentary usages in an
English speakiiig country, - *
How long this state, of affairs will
continue sccrns to depend more upon
tbo' tricky shiftiness of the'ministry
than upon the sense of honor and self
respect of.their supporters in the house.
One riigretable feature about tho muddle now- being mixed at Victoria is thc
altitude ofthe socialistic element which
pretends to represent tlio interest of tho
laboring man in tho house as against
the greed of the monopolists."'These
three members aro nover found antagonizing tho govurnmlint except whon
it is evident that such antagonism will
result in no danger to tho life of tlie
ministry.
On lho other hand, unfortunately for
the people whom tlmy uro supposed to
represent, they nro always fouiid-yoting
with the government whenever siieli
deals as the Dowduoy district affair or
the Kitloii iHlnud iniquity comes bofoio

■RAR in .ind year out those tablecloths nnd napkins, with, lor dp-
sign, uoiliing hut scuiareu aiul
dais ol' varying size?, sire usixl—
they arc patterns so simple that you
never get tired of thfcm, nml the fact
that Inexpensive c-lotjis come in those
patterns has no effect at all upon tho
iwppjaj'jly of tlie more costly ones.
It Is bound to conjure up by
itfii very richness.
Some others, a little less-
rich, arc a great dea} moro
Involved   in   deslRii—Powers --
and scrolls flung: together to
make    effective, * beautiful
designs.
Plenty of cloths come of a sood quality of damask, but unbleached, and sold,
in consequence, at a very low figure.
Many  a woman  buys  them  and  uses
them for every day, gradually bleaching
them to a snowy whiteness—not so gradually, either, if the laundering Is carefully ,looked to; and those cloths wear
like the proverbial iron, every woman
'Pliny   prm-in   In    m-m-y   f.4i-m     fi-nm    itin.       WllO  haS_tried_tliem _SayS,

- sells by tho yard, to tlio woven com-,
ploto cloths, with smaller dots and
squares rathar sp:u-ln;;ly applied In the
centro and intereuling borders. And
nothing shows off the quality pf '('po
flamask like tliojiv pluiiier cloths.
J?ut lho richest ol' nil the many new
tablecloths are those wilh Powers In-
flplrliii? the* design. Upon, un almost
plain centre were flung two or three
roses,   will}   the   long,   lull  stems,   nnd ■
., "buds shiiped In tlio way characteristic-
pf, American Beniny roues,   rtosos nnd
their leaven made, the border, the whole
fllflth as artistic, yet ns simple and dlg-
nlltui)   In Its application of tho designs
'ns nnylhliur could bo. To go with It
^cro tho pj-ettlest napkins—big ones, of
pourne—which woro inodlllcil copies of
t|)i»- cloth. Imagine IL with American
jjcfliity roses in tlio centre, nnd with tho
/jp'irkljpg glnsa and silver—tlio pretty
gowns of tho' womon sot off by tho
sober black units of tho men—a plpturo
There aro wonderful bargains to bo
picked up in the shops just now, either
in tho extra, exquisite linens, or in those
necessary evcry-day pieces. Napkins—
If you don't; need moro than half a dozen
of a kind—sold for fractions of their original pi ices, In Iittlo "lots" of half a
dozen of a kind, or three, or, perhaps,
nlpo, Or. perhaps, too many of tho napkins that mate)) certain cloths will bo
sold, leaving a cloth by Itself, which !*»
very much reduced In' price lp" consequence.
Towels hnve taken unto themselves
new beauty of deplgn. Many-"of .thorn
Btlck to thc conventional borders (although cvon thoBQ conventional borders
have developed Into unusual, beautiful
things); but soipo of tho newest havo
designs that aro flung all over thorn—
somo echoing tlio flower motif In a way
that suggests, though remotely, that
stunning tablecloth nnd Its attondant
napkins.

a rare woman theso days who doesn't
know the difference between good linens
and—tho other kind), there are opportunities on every hand to pick up kinds
that a good washing will set right as a
trivet.
As to centrepieces and tablecovers—
since the wholo lace world, apparently,
decided that there was nothing in whicli
lace could not be suitably combined with
sorne iorm_ of linen, for table use—ideas
-uiion-such-thingrTiave~been_tVrned"top^~
sy-turvy. Under the head of "art linens"
comes a bewildering variety of table-
covcrs-marvels of filet lace worked out
In story patterns, and of centrepieces
and tablecloths alike made exquisite with
borders and motifs—inset—of lt3 finest
form, or perhaps that newer, bolder
version which shows so well tho French
Influence.
Thero is wonderful German work in
embroidery, nnd drawn-work and lace,
set together in the substantial (though
artistic in every sense of tho word) German fashion;,bits of Italian work, reminiscent of rare old hangings, so llko
tho designs usually found only in tapestry aro somo of them; and a wholo
wealth of tho flat Japaneso work, nnd
of English eyelet work and Its cousin,
. Danish cut-work.
'In spite of all-white being tho rule,
there's tho Inevitable, exception. For cor-
tnln things, nothing takes tho place of
centropleces dono In delicate silks—
roses or orchids tho favorite designs,
lor libraries and dens, tablecovers
