Rarity of Hydrophobia.
At a discussion on the subject
at a meeting of the clinical
society of the New York Post-
Graduate School, Dr. F. B. St.
John Rossa presided, and said
that the medical profession
should take action upon the
vexed question of hydrophobia.
He had large experience with
dogs and had seen them with
symptoms which were pronounced by the books as hydrophobia, and the dogs had recovered, and people who were
bitten by them showed no signs
of hydrophobia.
Dr. W. A, Hammond said all
stories about persons being
bitten by mad dogs and having
disease years afterwards are untrue. He had seen several cases
of hydrophobia from fear. The
dog should be kept until the
symptoms of rabies appeared,
and not. killed at once, as is
usually done���it will die in nine
days if it has the disease. Bites
through clothing are harmless.
Dr. Hammond had no confidence
in Pasteur's methods. He did
not believe that hydrophobia
could be caused by inoculation
any more than lockjaw. In the
four cases from Newark, N.J.,
which Pasteur treated, there is
no proof that the dog was mad
that bit them. The same dog
also bit four other dogs and two
children and they are all free
from the symptoms of the
Dr. A. H. Smith said that he
had seen three cases said to be
hydrophobia but he did not believe they were genuine. He
claimed that persons bitter- by
dogs could bring on a disease
which would kill simply by the
effect of the imagination, without any virus being in the body.
All scares that come up periodically from the supposed appearance of hydrophobia are without
A hydrophobia caused by fear
was what Dr. T. E. Satterth-
waite believed. in. Out of the
9,000 cases of sickness at the
Pennsylvania hospital there was
only one case or hydrophobia,
and the post mortem in this case
did not show the evidence of the
disease. The spinal cord of this
patient is now shown in lectures
as a healthy cord. One doctor
said that the man died of alcoholic poisoning.
Dr. Ross said that all unite in
saying that hydrophobia is rare.
Hydrophobia is yet to be made
up from the beginning. He
hunted down one case of hydrophobia and found it to be caries
of the spine. He didn't believe
in muzzling dogs and ridiculed
the idea [of preventing the disease in this manner.���"Our
Day," Chicago.
The Inside of a Boy.
The outside of the boy is visible
and audible. He tries the nerves
and arouses the indignation of
every lover of quiet and good
order. He raises the dust and
scratches the furniture; he breaks
the windows and destroys the
lawn; he teases the dog and worries the cat; he is in the way when
he is not wanted, and out of the
way when he is wanted; he seems
to be a miniature jacketted cyclone, full of energy and always
in motion. Ink-stained fingers
and dust-stained face, hard to
keep in shoes and clothes, loving
play, and not much in love with
work, this is something like the
average boy.
Can such a boy become a Christian? Will Christianity take the
yell and the play out of him? Will
keep him out of mischief and
make him a quiet, orderly, low-
voiced angel? Thank God it will
not. If you have that idea of a
boy's religion, please do not try
it on the boys or you will imagine
you have mistaken your vocation
entirely.        '''''

water was found until within about a
quarter of ,a mile of the desired spot,
where an impassable bar was encountered. The party then returned to the
lower landing to further consult concerning the situation. The result of
their deliberations was that the government representatives promised to
supply a landing scow, to be surmounted by a warehouse, 22x60 ft'; as
the only possible solution of the difficult
problem. This scow can be moved

Mr l oi�� in and the New Theology.
Editor Advance:-Kindly allow
me to express my satisfaction at
having read in the columns of
your issue of the 9th inst. under
the heading of, "In the Realm of
Spirit," an article entitled "A
New Theology," copied from the
Victoria Times. Some of us realize that if we are to have a theology, which I do not think necessary, (as I think ethics from a
philosophic basis will fill every
need of man) a new one must be
evolved, for the old one will not
withstand the search-light of
reason. I had not hoped that the
coming revolution of spiritual
thought would emanate from
within the churches, for those
who allow themselves to think
on these subjects at all, realize
that dogmatism and progress are
diametrically opposed. I am
therefore pleased to note that
there are men in high position in
the churches who allow themselves to reason and have the
courage of their convictions.
It requires no educated or cultured mind to realize that the old
theology is, to say the least, absurd; for how can the doctrine of
man's fall through Adam, and
the vicarious sacrifice of Christ
be harmonized with the omnicient
attributes of God? or the doctrine
of man's free agency with God's
omnipotent attributes?
Herbert Spencer, in writing on
ethics, gives us a philosophy that
I will try to express as simply as
I can from memory.
The way we may know the
difference between right and
wrong is by the effect. That
which brings lasting pleasure
must be right, and pain is but
nature protesting against wrong,'
to lead us into, or teach us what
is right (not an avenging Deity
satisfying his feeling of revenge).
Although the above mentioned
doctrines are absurd, they are
not nearly as baneful to the human mind as that horrible doctrine of punishment as taught by
the churches. To teach Nature's
law of correction (pain or evil
effect) is reasonable, but the doctrine of an avenging Deity, placing man���his own product���in
ete.nal torment is not consistent
with the omnipotence or omnici-
c\v:e of God, as it admits of failure: for if man cannot reform in
hell, of what use is the punishment?
I am lead therefore to believe
that priestcraft has invented this
doctrine to scare ignorant humanity into submission and to hold
their dupes under control. This
doctrine of revenge and spite instilled into our minds from infancy is largely responsible for
most of the evils (bad effects)
that permiate our present civilization (?)
The above, sir, are my honest
convictions, and were not arrived
at by reading "horrid" infidel
books, but have been forced upon
a mind prejudiced in favor of the
Christian religion, and one who
tried Christianity and found it
wanting. If I have said anything
that is illogical or unreasonable I
am open for correction or confutation.
Yours for the truth,
W. S, Forsyth.
Old Age Pensions In England.
Editor of Advance :���
The Old Age Pension question
has been discussed in the British
House of Commons.- It is proposed to give every man and
women over the age of 65 years,
a pension of $1.26 per week.
About One Hundred and Thirty
Million Dollars ($130,000,000)
will be required every year to
Bay the pensions in the United
[ingdom, but against this sum
may be placed large sums of
money used on the old, wasteful
and extravagant system of the
present administration of the
Poor Law. Then it is further
estimated that a large section of
the people would not draw the
pension to which all would be entitled, therefore, it would leave,
probably, Seventy-Five million
Dollars ($75,000,000) to be found
as a permanent charge upon the
In the year 1894 Sir Wm. Har-
court initiated the Death Duties,
or Tax. At the present time the
revenue from this source would
be sufficient to provide for all old
people in the United Kingdom
over 65 years of age. Therefore,
if the pensions are paid out of
this fund the monies of the rich
will be taxed, when they die, to
pay for the support of the living,
an arrangement which few could
find fault with seeing that the
persons who succeed to the large
fortunes would not appreciate
the deduction to any serious extent.
The interest on the amount ex-
��ended on the South African
far, (which, in my opinion was
wasted as there should not have
been any war), would be sufficient to pay the Seventy-Five
Million Dollars ($75,000,000 per
annum now required for the old
age pensions. It is probable that
the old age pension system in
the old country will soon become
an accomplished fact.
In British Columbia we have a
large number of young people,
and it should be repeated that
the crown lands of this province
belong to the people. Each one
of us have a right to exist, when
we get older, out of the proceeds
of these lands,therefore, we should
take steps to allocate a certain
portion of the proceeds from all
Government land sales henceforth
held in this province. These
funds should be placed into a
separate account and they would
soon be sufficient to pay a reasonable pension to every man and
woman in the province at the age
of 65. I am hoping that it will
be found practicable to reduce
the age to 55 and. that we may
build comfortable houses in beautiful surroundings in various
parts of the province in which
we may live, if we wish, when
we get older. It must not be
forgotten that the money paid in
old age pensions is not lost but is
simply distributed among the
merchants, in exchange for food
and raiment.

The lo;al market prices have shown
a general tendency to strengthen, due
largely to a holding back of products
on the part of the farmers. The price
of hay has remained stationary, but
there is little offering. Oats have advanced $2.00 per ton during the past
week. Peas have also advanced from
$2 to $3 per ton. Potatoes are only
bringing $15 still, but are not offered in
large quantities, the impression being
that a higher price will soon prevail.
Beef and veal have both advanced
slightly. Mutton is still very scarce.
Hogs have advanced about a half cent.
Chickens are very scarce at $6 and
eggs have dropped to 22 cents.

Clerk Mackenzie reports a very good
market yesterday. The supply of beef
was good and all sold at quotations.
Mutton was very much short of the demand and found quick sale. Pork was
less plentiful than last week, with a
strong demand. Veal was fair in supply with demand good. The supply of
eggs was good and the demand equal to
the supply at 23 cents per dozen wholesale. The offering of chickens was fair
and all sold readily. Ths supply of fowl
showed an increase over that of last
week, with a good demand and a streng-
thing of price. No geese or ducks appeared on the market at all. Potatoes
were good in quantity offered, with an
equally good demand, especially for
.first-class stock.

the latter matter, Mr. McBride
said, "We were asked to give up
our reversionary interest in 13,-
000 acres of land on the Tsimp-
sean peninsula in addition to the
terminal facilities we have already given to the Grand Trunk
Pacific. We refused and the
government at Ottawa, without
having the decency to consult us,
went over our heads, and said,
'We propose to give these lands
to the Grand Trunk in spite of
you.' It is up to every member
of this house; it is up to the
Liberal party and to the Socialist
party, that we should stand
shoulder to shoulder for provincial rights in this respect."
The Premier held the attention
of the House for nearly three
hours in an address which not
only met all the criticisms of the
Opposition leader but was packed
with information respecting the
live issues of the day. So effective was his defense of the government's position that further
debate of the address in reply to
the Lieutenant-Governor's speech
was abandoned after a brief tornado of adjectives, of which
Parker Williams,' socialist, was
the focal centre. At the conclusion of Mr. Williams' speech,
the address was adopted with
the socialists alone dissenting.
After its three days debate on
the Address the Legislature is
now "down to regular business,

Corruption In Business.
From the strenuous and. unscrupulous attempts of one party
to overthrow the other, there has
existed for a long time, not only
in this country but in all countries, what is spoken of as political corruption. Unfortunately, a
crime of this sort is not looked
upon by the people as of such a
serious nature as the general
crime outside of politics, such as
theft, assault, etc. As a result
of the leniency usually exercised
towards the political criminal, it
is sometimes feared that the influence of wrong-doing in that
sphere leads to dishonesty in the
business walks of life.
In this age of keen competition
it is no doubt too often the case
that a man resorts to petty crimes
in order to get the best of his
competitor.    Referring to one
Bhase of the matter, the Toronto
tews says that it mav be suggested that under the new British Act to prevent corruption in
business it will be difficult to secure convictions because the
transactions aimed at are usually
of a secret or clandestine character; and, further, that a loophole of escape from the prescribed penalties is afforded by the
introduction of the word "knowingly'' in the definition of the offence. Whatever force there may
be in this suggestion or criticism
-and the law is pretty well settled as to the construction of a
penal statute where the word
'knowingly" is employed���there
can be no question about the intention of the Legislature. The
Act as a whole appears to be well
calculated to effect its purpose.
It is manifestly a remedial statute, and as such will receive a
liberal interpretation. The fact
that the system of improper tips
and bribes is declared by Parliament, as representing the nation,
to be a crime, is bound to act as
a deterrent; and persons engaged
in trade and business will no
doubt think twice before they
risk conviction of an offence
which is certain to seriously affect their status, commercially
and socially. The mere secrecy
of a dishonest and corrupt transaction is no guarantee against its
Crime as a rule is done in secret,
but the offences which are struck
at by this piece of penal legislation are not the acts of a small
number of criminal agents, and
the chances of detection and exposure are therefore much greater. Every person- contravening
the Act in a secret manner puts
himself at the mercy of every
other unscrupulous or disappointed offender. Nor is there much
hope for any offender escaping
through a failure to prove guilty
knowledge. The secret of the
act constituting the offence will,
in many cases, afford more or
less of a presumption of guilt, and
be sufficient, coupled with other
circumstances, for a judge or
jury to act upon, especially as the
statute is framed on broad lines,
and the courts are likely to construe it in the same manner in
order that the object of the Legislature may be fully accomplished.-The Commercial.

It affords me much pleasure to

In view of the general prosperity which prevails throughout the

to express a deep sense of gratitude and thankfulness for the
many blessings bestowed upon
the people of British Columbia.
I am pleased to congratulate
you on the satisfactory state of
the provincial finances, which will
show a substantial snrplns, and
on the steady and continuous
expansion of the industries of the
province, as evidenced by the in
creased production of the mines,
fisheries, forests, fields and orchards.
The question of the financial
relations existing between the
province and the Dominion will
be submitted for your consideration, together with a report of
the proceedings of the inter-provincial conference held nt Ottawa,
the most important .point in
which is the acknowledgment by
the Dominion Government of the
right of British Columbia to "better terms."

amending the assessment act,
which will provide for decreasing
the taxation on real and personal property.
The validity of the coal and

which it is proposed to bring into force at an early date.
In order that the youth of the
province may lie enabled to perfect themselves in the arts and
sciences without having to seek
abroad the facilities for higher
education, a measure will be submitted for your consideration,
authorizing the setting apart of
a sufficient portion of the crown
lands to create a fund for the establishment of a provincial university.
You will be asked to place a
sum on the estimates for the purpose of obtaining a full report on
the subject of irrigation and the
available sources of water supplv
in the "dry belt."
Steps have been taken by my
government to assert the rights
of the province in the lands set
apart as Indian reserves. The

Half the boy's faults, perhaps
a great deal more than that, are
simply manifestations of the titanic life forces at work in that
small bundle of budding manhood. The boy has a great deal
to learn, and needs teachers. But
he needs wise teachers, and firm,
strong teachers. The teacher
must understand the boy or fail.
The boy must have room to grow.
Somehow, somewhere he must let
loose his surplus energy. Men
say the boy is hard to control; so
would a steam-engine be if we let
the pressure run up, and gave it
no load to carry. Give him exercise; lots of it, but not too long
The boy likes excitement, adventure, and does not know why.
It is simply the voice of the ancient Vikings Unsilenced after fifteen centuries. Don't try to
crush it out; train it.
The boy has a conscience and a
keen eye for inconsistency. His
teacher must be clean; whiter
than the snow is none too white
for boys.
The boy possesses also a high
regard for manhood, especially
for the kind that distinguishes
itself in athletic or intellectual
triumphs, and we must use this
also to win him for Christ and
the higher life.
But above all else the boy has
a loving heart. He wants friends.
He may not be very demonstrative, but he appreciates kindness.
Use him well, feed him well,
speak kindly to him and of him,
and your kindness will prove a
channel through which Christ
can come to that boy. But your
kindness must not be of the condescending type, rather of the
comrade type. Alake a friend, a
chum if you will, of your boy
and your boy is well-
nigh won. Above all, don't
judge a boy by the things
in him that you don't like. Get
inside of him and find what he
really is; find out his good points
as well as his bad ones, not till
then can you help him much, but
if you can only understand him
and get a grip on his heart, he
will follow you anywhere.���The
Christian Guardian.

"You Heve My Parting. Miss"
A young lady, in hastily turning the corner of a street in London, accidentally ran with great i
force against a ragged beggar
boy and nearly knocked him over.
Stopping as soon as she could and
retracing her steps, she said,
very kindly, "I beg your pardon,
my little fellow. I am very sorry
that I ran against you."
The boy was wholly amazed;
he looked at the lady one moment, and then, taking off his tattered cap, made a graceful bow
and said, as his face lit up with
a smile: ' 'You have my parding,
miss, and ye're welcome to it.
And say, the noxt time you run
ag'in me, you kin knock me clean
down and I won't say a word."
After the lady had passed on,
the boy said to a companion :    I
say, Jim, it's fine to hev some- j
body asking yer parding, ain't!
