Ilrotlier Grace, of The Prospector,
reported foui and a half columns of
Hon. Richard* MeBride's hour and a
half speech at Cranbrook lasi week and
li.id he not ran out of capital "I's" we
should have had as many more columns
to pick the big" Ts out of. Hon. Dick
referred, modestly of course, lo himself
over seventy, times as "I" and half as
many limes as "we," as gracefully re
ported by bin impartial friend Grace,
nnd it is certain that the "I's" have il
in that speech. I,ast week we noticed,
briefly, the0 "ixlitterin-j*'' speech made
by our premier at the Harden banquet
in Toronto and we clip from thc Toronto Telegram the following opinion of
our orator's ability to talk without saying anything',
"At his side (Mr. Borden's) sat Premier Dick McBride, of British Columbia, his prematurely grey hair parted
awfully near the,middje and looking as
if It wai fresh from the crimping irons
, of the hairdressers-just as little like a
wild and woolly westerner as anybody
could imagine. . . . 7 . . .
Richard is only thirty-four. To look
at him you'd think he was forty. To
hear him speak you might take hiin for

and 'If you can't boost don't knock,"
you have all he said in half an hour.
He went west again last night, but wv
will try and muddle along somehow
without him."
Don't wor.-y alviiit the hair, Mr,
Ti-legr-im, Hon. Richard is an adept
(it hair splitting and his failure to have
the split exactly in the middle should
not be taken too seriously, especially

O 1 the Verge of Electric, Epoch
In tne opinion of Thos. A. Kdison,
wonders are yet lo be unfolded in ihe
world of electricity.
V\!e are groping on the verge of an
oilier great epoch iu the world's history, *?
he saiu in an interview at his laboratory
in West Orange, N. J. It would nol
surprise me any morning lo wake -up
anil luid lhat sumeoin,*, some group 01
joo,ooo scientific men who arc mve&n-
gatiiig all over lhe group, has . scued
upon the secret of electricity by direct
process and begun anotlier practical
revolution in human all'airs.
It can be done; it will be done. I
expect 10 see Ue before 1 die.
The first great change in the production ot electricity will abolish currying coal for that purpose, he said,
instead ol digging gross material oul
Jt' the earth, loading it on cars and
carrying it, sa> 500 miles, there to put
il under a boiler and burn, and so get
[lower, we shall set up plants at tlie
mouth's ol mines, generate power there
and transmit it-wherever it is needed
by copper wire.
It is pj'eposterous to keep on putting
coal mines 011 wheels, liis too cium-
.-4)'. It is too costly. There is no ne-
i-essity for it.     It is easier to, carry
_iuolei.ular vibration_by minions ol,
waves a second'than freight cars full ol
crude mailer. We can ship 100,000
Horsepower over the wire quicker and
more cconimically than we can send
the equivalent in coal over a ruilroad
tracif.  s
We must eliminate the railroad altogether from this problem. What's thc
use of il? Wc don't want coal anyhow. It docs us no good lo look at it.
What we want is the resultant of the
utmost energy thai can be produced.
And there is no sense in carrying
around millions of ions of raw material
like coal when wc can get ti product
delivered lo us hy wire.
Everything points to the fact that in
the near future electricity will be produced for genural consumption by
great power houses at the mouths ol*
coalpits. This is the logical and common sense outcome of present events.
Now, the truth is, that il wi'l cost a
third less to transport electrical power
by wire than to carry it in the form of
coal in railroad cars. Assume the price
of coal to'be $1 a (on at thu mouth of
the mine and assume thc freight to be
$1.90. Now, wc can' turn coal into
electricity al the mine nud convey it by
wire by less lliiui half of the cost of the
freightage of coal.
Klectriclty will Inlce the place of
horses. It will nolve the vehicle and
truiTic problem of cities, My new electric storage battery itself will make
electricity cheaper than horses, In thu
spring we will lie ready to furnish new
batteries. Not only will they inkc
half tho spnee of homo tniflic, hut lliey
will go twice mi fust. Tliey can * ho
stored on upper floor? by menus of elevators. The saving of Hlahlc *pitcc in
New Voile will cover al least $300,000,-
ono won h of property,
Not only will electric power be developed nnd distributed from conl
mines in thn future, but nil the witter*
power In (he world will be used for the
production of electricity.. That imwif
ment has begun nnd is ndvnnrlng rapidly. In California, where men hnve
nerve enough to overcome habit, they
nre transmitting electric power 375
milrs by wire nnd running street caru'
and lighting cities by it. That Is the,
sort ol spirit ttial will wake Hie world
up one ol c.icm* da)*,. 1 with (ha( 'j-'ii
it in California would sordid everywhere.

A Coincidence/
Last week we wrote the article ap*
pearing in this issue under the heading
*«jof "A Faithful Reporter", but owing to
a pressure of other matter if was held
over until this issue. In the meantime
the Nelson News published an extensive
quotation from The Prospector's report
of the speech rcfered to, and commented
upon it along very similar lines as that
followed by The Lbdgsr, though treat*
ing the Hon; Richard's remarks with
rather . more seriousness than Tun
Ledger thought the speech was entitled
to. .
We only produce our delayed arlicle
as an instance of a coincidence.

Featherstono Osier and mother of four
ot Canada's moat distinguished men,
recently celebrated her' ninety-ninth
birthday at Toronto. Leaving England in the early thirties, Mr. and
lire. Osier settled at Bond Head, On*
tario, and there they lived and labored for many years as missionaries,
Mr. Osier subsequently taking charge
of an Anglican church at Ancastor,
where he continued until created
canon. His last quiet years were
- spent in Toronto, where he died only
a few years ago. Mrs. Osier, in spite
of her years, is still vigorous ot intellect and retains all her old interest

A Woman Dinner Wit
What person, however enthusiastic, has ever dreamed that .woman
would essay what has ever been left
to man alone—the after-dinner
Mrs. Frederick Nathan of 162 West
Eighty-sixth street is the woman who
has dared. Her success, has been
overwhelming. And it has been no
audience of diletantes whom she
lias had to address. Facing bcr,
New York.
The dinner was Mr. Cutt'ng's.-
The guest of honor was Mr. "William
T. Jerome , The place was the Hotel Astor. . Of course, Mr., Jerome's
•wns the apecchpf tho evening-, but it
won't do him a bit of good to say that
Mrs. Nathan eclipsed him. Mr. Jerome admitted it by confiscating for
tils own future use tbe brief notes
that Mrs. Nathan jotted down when
told sho must say something,
There wore ladies at the dinner,
but thoy weren't down on the programme.
There is a poem called Success and
Victory, and Mrs. Nathan's cousin,
Miss Emma LnsaroB, wrote it. So it
was perfectly natural that whon Mr.
Cutting wanted it read at tbe dinner
ho should ask Mrs. Nathan to read
it Mr. Jerome and several ot the
others, had spoken splendidly boforo
Mrs. Nathan was called upon (or the
At a dinner recently given In
Kansas women wero barred. Mrs.
Nathap thought it unfair. So she
promjC/ proceeded to speak her
mind about it to Mr. Cutting txul Mr.
Jilfome. Tho poem to gracefully
sidetracked for the moment and Mrs,
Nathan began. In tho twinkling of
nn eye she had hor hearera roaring
with laughter. Sho didn't spare
them, either— thoso mere mon to
whom after-dinner speaking Is second, nature. Mr. Jorome applauded
. and the banquet room rang with
cheers. Finally she read the poem
most gractfally and started to take
tier seat
Don't atop, cried tbe banqueters,
led by Mr. Cuttlug and Jerome,
More, mora.
Well, said Mrs. Nathan, with a
most captivating smile, I havon't
mado half as good a speech as I am
capable ol, becuusa the speech is
cxtoinporaneoai and I'm Ul at ease
for want of a pair of trousers* pocket*
to pat my hands In.
'The fact brought out in the New
York investigation that Mr. Hadley
bought a controlling interest in the
Provident Savings Life Assurance
society practically, with^ money borrowed from the corporation, shows
that latter-day financiering is real
Yankee hoes trading raised to a
higher power.—Toronto Globe."
This is onlv one more instance of
the abuse of trust reposed iu the
managers and directors of Life companies, which roused the American
people to action,-and which will
Anally result in regulations to restrict
the managing aad directing trust'so
that it will be one companv, one
directorship or one management for
one individual.*
The death of Senator David_Wark,.
the oldest member ofthe Canadian Parliament, recalls an anecdote which illustrates his remarkable independence.
At the sige of 101 he was still holding
the seat which had been hi* for almost
half a century. During his last years
his faintly: had been worried about his
habit of traveling alone in midwinter
from his home in Fredericlown, N. B.,
.to his post in Ottawa. They urged
him to let his daughter accompany him.
Senator Wark would have none of her.
'■A man of my age," he said, "has all
he can do taking care of himself without having a woman to look after."
The New Court of Appeals hns decided that if a passonger cannot find a
seat In a car for which he has bought a
ticket he bus a right to ko Into a drawing-room car and tnko a scat until onq
is provldod for him in the ordinary
passenger car, and also that if seats are
not to be had because they are occupied by parcels ho Is not bound to ask
the owners to removo them. If this is
not tho law in Canada it should be.
"The Insurance magnntos of Now
York, like the plumber magnates of
Toronto, quarrelled among themselves.
This tendency in the salvation of the
public. It makes it ImpoiBlblo for any
combination to stirvlvo without loiral
assistance,-"—'Toronto Gloho. Which

"True it was not always the quiel
