in tiie annals of Britisij Columbia'n legislature. Not only were all precedents
shattered in the days proceedings—the
leaders of lhe opposition for takin-ij the
debate on His Honor's speech immediately iifter lhc mover and seconder of
llie reply i»ad been heard from, and announcements commonly reserved for
late in the session beinfj iasdc by the
premier at iiie outset, wkile Mr. McDonald was even more to the point in
outlining ihe course the ,Liberal opposition will pursue. Tbe Kosslatid member's address proved infinitely his strongest and most effective contribution to
legislative debates since. his entrance
iii'o the provincial arena, being almost
judicially argumentative and so effective an arraignment: that the premier
wiis compelled to immediately reply and
failed utterly, to shake tbe impression
created. Premier MeBride's significant
announcements were that ne railway
legislation is contemplated this session,
the government policy being to withhold
laud or money aid hereafter allowing
railway construction to proceed along
the lines of unassisted private business
enterprises. The school act would be
amended he declared but not in principle, merely in lhe improvement of itui-
ciiincry. The premier defended the
Kaien Island deal as the best bargain
possible in provincial interest and indicated that no change will be made in
the i per cent (ax, no workable suggestion having been offered as a sub-
slitule or more equitable method of making the mining industry contributory
lo provincial revenue.
Mr. MacDonald went straight to thc
essence of things io criticism of lhe
speech. He demonstrated the nonsensical character of the government's
claim to credit for the prosperity of
mining", limbering etc, and the cxpan-
prosperous chiefly because the price of
metals had advanced in spite of rather
than through any action of the government which had merely failed to redeem
its promises of a reduction of taxation.
Lumbering has prospered because the

All.thc government has done in respect
to timbering Had been to Increase taxation, -Fruit' growing had prospered
because, trees had been planted and the
foundation of.the industry laid long be-
fore tin*, McBride government was
dreamed of. The conditions of prosperity, for which . thc government took
credit was really resultant upon the
confidence ot .British Columbians in
their country.
The government's repeated breach of
pledges in railway matters was next
traced step by step down to last year's
attempt to give away a million and a
half 10 die C. P. R,, for building its
Slmill'iimccn road now under construction unassisted and ibis year's indefinite
railway reference in his honor'i speech.
The government was pillioricd foi
mistaking tho mere collection and increasing of luxation for statesmanship
and for the enactment,of a school law
which destroyed the free educational
system that had been the pride and
glory of British Columbia.
Respecting tlie Knlen Islund trans
action, the Liberal leader challenged
lhe legality of the government'« action
in giving these 15 square milen of flrit-
isli Columbia's valuablo land hy order
in council, to ihu speculative intermediary of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, far It was imprewdotilfd to make
such Krauts (0 the solicitor nil her than
iu thc princlpiilfihlp, alleging authority
which did not exist in section y> ofthe
Land Act. No wonder the government
proposed lo grunt no railway legislation
when by minute in council it Ihui pro-
pnsrd to take the nsslktanre of railway-,
out of the hands ofthe legh-laiure,

Columbia campaign for better terms
from the Dominion, and failing m sack
campaign a severance ot rhe ties of Confederation. The speech ofthe Vancouv-
«r member was only .Barred by an unfortunate reference to thc late eleatwns
in the prairie provinces,- despite which
it stands as the most remarkable contribution to a debate on the speech ever
made by a government supporter io
British Columbia's parlianient.
The second day's contributors to tbe
debate included .Muiiro, of Chilliwack
Cameron, of Victoria; Brown, of Green*
wood; Murphy, of Cariboo, and Shat-
ford, of Similkaineen, who rivalled Mr.*
MacGown in his .independent treatment
of the questions of better terms enlurgj
ing appropriations for the board of horticulture and the necessity for the immediate cons'faction of a road from
Hedley to tlic Nickel plate mine.
Attorney-General Wikon defended
the Kaien Island deal in a special plea,
evading the challenge of the Liberals
to test the legality ofthe government's
course. The minister also crejited con-
.lidciable surprise id a complimentary
reference to Mr. Mclnnis, by asserting
lhat tbe only member left in Br'tirfi

DURING childhood the foundation
of future health and character
is laid, and caiCsliciuld be taken
during these first years o£ a
Chilli-.*- 'Ife lo keep th'ngs as sunshiny
As tiO*islble. li Is aa natural fur a child
to be cheerful and good-natured as It
(a for n kitten to play or a,bird to sing,
and when signs of fri.*tfiilfiess and bad
temper aiih-c-. It behooves the mother to
look for llie cause. She will usually
find It In s..ine slight physical 111, which,
nine times out of ten, has been.*brought.
about by lack of proper exercise and
fresh air.
Keep your children healthy, and you
aro apt"to fini". them a merry" lot and
easy to .manage. One of the most fre-
tiuinl sources of neglect is in not keeping children out of doors more.
You must not expect them lo s--tay out
pf doors unless thoy have something to
Jnterest them, and for this reason every
mother should try to Invent games and
pastimes that will keep thcrn.out In the
pure,-fresh air. One or two liours out
ol twenty-four- In fresh air is not
enough for children If they are to have
tho best chance of growing up strong
ond vigorous. ,. , _-	
RcmembM- how Important Is tlftFTn- .
Jiiil.ulon of pure air If you would have
pure blood; and remember, too. what is
pften forgotten—thut children need a
plentiful supply of oxygen even moro
yrgi'iitly than grown people, and oxygen
tn a sufficient amount we can only find
In the air out of doors.
In summer it is particularly easy to
manage so that many hours may be
spent ln thc open air. There is no doubt
lhat this is more difficult In town than
in tho country; nevertheless, it can bo
accomplished If there is even a small
garden at the back of tlie house.
Of course the nir In these back yards
Is not so good as thc air in-the country
or at the shore, but It Is infinitely better than the air indoors.
A .swing can always be fixed up at
little expense, and it affords outdoor
occupation, amusement and exercise of
a wholesome kind. At a surprisingly
yearly "age children-can bo encouraged
■ to take an interest In a flower bed, the
digging always appeals to them, and
frequently it develops an Idea of beautifying lather than destroying public or
other property.
There arc innumerable garden games,
and new ones coming along all tho
time. Quoits, ninepins, battledore and
shuttlecock, archery, bennbag, aro all
games that will keep children.amused
out of doors, which should bo the aim
_of every_roother. .	
JtJs a good thing "to keep" a time table
of just how many hours your children
spend In the open air. Do not punish
the little ones for fretting' until you
find out why they fret; consult your
time table—the reason may bo there.  -

The other aftomoon Tom, Lawson

"This is  the   situation:   There   is
j plenty of money for all legitimate  purposes, but our country,  having awakened lo the system's   game,   will   not
send its balances to Wall street.
My. revelation compelled the system
to bid up slocks to protect its rotten
structure. This doubling of prices and
values has increased Wall Street's demands for money.      ..-
Hence the unheard of money rates.
Now- the system has its own stocks,
and with prices way up where it wants
them is ready to unload on thc public, ' but . the public will not bile.
Therefore lhe only possible chance lefl
the system is to get rates down in the
" hope thut brokers can induce the
gambling public to buy stocks on margin.
Next, President  Roosevelt,   wlio   is
thoroughly posted pii   the  game,   is
watching it as a lerrior does a ral hole,
and will allow no relief to   go   to   the
"The Jeiidlockis now;perfect, and

Roosevelt would he fooled into thinking
he trouble was due the Rothchilil com-

his upper and lower teeth cut, and in

pud the key overboard*

rates' are a disgrace to civilized * people.'

"What he wanted to say was that
the advance in Reading, a property absolutely dependable upon lhe price of
coal to the people, from 30 to 155; doubling the prices of other stocks which
can only be jnstilied by increasing the
price of ii** . people's., necessities, was
but a.damnable outrajrc on_Tree people

A nugget ofalmost pure silver weighing 250 lbs., has been , found on a property hear Giroux lake, in the Cobalt
mining' area, owned by A. M. Wylie,
of Pprl Arthur, and J. B. Pardee, of
Sault Ste. Marie Ont. - Along with
it were found two-smaller nuggets of
about 30 lbs. each. The big one was
placed on exhibition at the Imperial
Cobalt, Cobalt. Mr. Hanson, representing American -apitalists, has purchased McLeod & Glendinning's claim
at Cross lake for $250,000, and put a
number of men' at 'work on it. The
diamond drill in operation al La Rose
mine is down 340 ft, and the vein is
found lo be holding out well.
An important "strike of gold at the
Laurenlian mine, in the Manilou gold
area, noar Wabigoon, is reported. The
mine' has only recently been re-opened
and blasting operations in the course
of drifting from the north side of the
shaft at 85-ft. level di placed large

Newspapers are sheets on which stuff

such. I dou't know how newspapers
came into tho world. I don't think God
does. The bible says nothing about
editors, and I nover heard of ouo boing
in heaven. I jruess editors is tho miss*

lirst editor I ever heard of was the fellow who,'.vroto up tho flood; he has been
here ever since. Sonio editors belong

Japanese Famine.
Spoflltvl to Tua  Lkikikr: l'
Vi",'toiia,'B.,C. Jan.   16, —  Fiirllier
advices from the famine stricken   prov
inces of northern    Japan    state   tliat
thousands of people are already  forced
to hunt in the forests for 'war.ibc'  fern
roots and edible Ireo barks,  wherewith
to preserve life in them.    For  tlie rest
of this winter such   will   be   the   only,
food multitudes will have,' except whul
may be furnished by the government or
privnte relief.    William   Axling,   who
was sent by the foreign relief coniinil-
tee at Sendai lo investigate tlie   famine
outlook, says in his report:
Iwiite province is facin-/ the most
serious famine in its history. The rice
crop, which in an average year yields
to the province nearly 7,000,000,000
ypn, has given this.yejir only a;3i4,920
where the crop was poorest, the great?
er portion of- the population live.
Where • 90% - of-die population- dwell
there has been less than 20% of a crop.
The provincial authorities, are; fully - a-
wakelto tbe distress thaf is staring pco*
pie in. the face. • They propose lo spend
105'neo yen on public works, to borrow
300,000 yen in Tokio for the same pur-
poseandto uso 100,000 in providing
seed for tliis year's, planting. As llie
children are quitting school because
tliey have no lunches, the authorities
have purchased 200,000,pounds of army
biscuits, and will give three biscuits to
each child for n mid-day mejil. Ono
out of every seven of the population of
tho province will have to be assisted or
fjtnrvc to denth.

Thc people of Frank arc experiencing some sliding about in lho mutter of
getting tho proposed wagon road

held a few duyii. ago, and nfter much
discussion a delegation was Appointed
to go lo I.d mon ton to interview llie
Mlnistsr of Public Works in relation to
the mutter. And now the troubles of
lhe government will begin. If litti
rumors in circulation nhout the C, P.
