Thero weie between 400 ami 500
in-esent at the opening o( the T.ibeiMl
convention in Vancotirtr last week.
Of 'Ms number only 289 were duly
appointed delegates, tho others drop
plnir in to witnens the opening cere
monies, which, like tho whole convention, proved decidedly interest ing.
After considerable wnincliiiK- which
Immediately showed that two distinct
and totally different Tactions weie present, Hon. F. Peters of Viotoria wns
ohosen temporary chuinhau aud A.
Malins secretary.
Hon Joseph Martin then moved that
the siiKgestioii uf the Vancouver asso*
elation that the different flections up
point a credential* commit tee and thnt
the committee proceed toits work a-
todecidiip who had n right to sit in
the convention. This met with grcn'
oppo-sition from those opposed to Mr
M.irtin, hnt it wan finally deoided thnt
the credential committee meet nt 5
o'clock iu the afternoon and the con*
vention at 7 .'JO p.m. J. G. Grceno was
c.hoftcn to represent N. J* Kootennv at
the committee meet in tr. which wns held
with closed doors, and it is impossible
to find out exactly what took place,
but apparently a lively time followed,
judging from the discussion's that
followed in the convention later on,
for tho meeting it appears broke up at
midnight. Tho chief discussion aros��>
t>verthe Esiftiimalt and Cassiar dele
Ration. One meting in Esquimalt
elected lit an'i-Mnrtin men. while a
subsequent favored the premier and
elected others. -There were I wo credential men from.each of these iu the
committee. More than half the Ca"Btar
delegation was thrown out. i'roxies
Wire not- accepted.
"Whrn the convention opened on
Wednesday morning there wn* a gen
era) riot and the police had to bo called
In to prevent self chosen ihdegstes from
gaining admission, as enoh delegate
had to ahow his credentials. B-ime
thought the credential committee were
���j ver-officious and the ohjectlan created

he^o dclegates headed by one who

After several preliminaries the con-
votnion actually got doiVwLtb work,

Bichmunl, asked that Chas. B. Feed
ham le suhstitmed for J. Jotici for his
district, and here the hall hegan rolling,
nearly half the delegation trying tu
-uwiifc nt'oitcp. (Here it was ducidpd
that delegales when speaking slioi-11
give their name and whero thev come
from, F. H. Medburst, S. E. Koote

shonld not bo oned, W Alexander.
N E Kootenay, climbed upon u rhair
and made himself heard above tint
medley, saying that if this substitution of mimes were allowed it would
ho perfectly in order for the delegates
of N. B. Kootenay to go out in the
street nnd | ick enough from the pass
ing throng to till the delegation from
bis district. For a time nothing was
heard above the cries of "No! No!"
F. J Deane wovod that the minority
report of ihe credentiai committee he
adopted. E. P. Davis said hit name
waa Davis and he 'vjis from Langley
(laughter), lie seconded the motion,
saying it was quite plain that it wus
impossible in the time at their disposal
to get delegates from Cassiar nnd Cariboo unless they allowed proxies.
Jas. McQreer, Vancouver, said thn'
no person had a right to elect himself
a representative of Cassiar, for If all
other places bad followed Victoria's
action, what would have happened?
It wonld be establishing a bad precedent to admit the Cassiar proxies, as
aome of them were not Liberals.
A nnmber of speakers spoke upon
the Cassiar quostion, all asking for
British fair play-Liberal fair play ;
but it wonld take all the lawyers In
Philadelphia to decide what fair piny
in the minds of the speakers really
was. It wa* finally decided, however;
to allow the Cassiar delegates to sit
hi the convention by tht chairman
easting the final vote.
Frank Higglns then took up the
question Of lho E-qninialt delegation.
Tlie Interior delegntcs became thoroughly disgusted with the course pur
sued on this question, A compromise
wit eventually decided upon.
The trening session began sharp on
tlm* in. the flrst business whs a
resoluilm by E. P. Davis as follows:
11 That the Liberals fn provincial
convention assembled hereby refuse to
accept tht government of Hon Joseph
Martin aa a representative Liberal ad.
ministration, and hereby declare that
It ia optional with any Libdral to support or eppose the Government."
Il ttn. understood Mr. Davis desired
to speak on a personal nffalr, but the
interior delegates would not accede to
it. Some wanted a ten-minute limit on
sneakers but the chaii man ruled that
Mr. Davis's motion would first have to
bt disposed of, Tbe interior delegates
insists! tnd several angry remarks
wert made. The uproar continued
and the chairman tried in vain to get
Mr Miodie rising, said: "I am H
B Moodie. Icot;io from North Ean
Kootenay." But alt hon At Mr. Moodie
stood It out for over a hour he Tailed
to get a hearing, but calmly smoked a
cigar.    Everybody tried to speak, but
from that till tho close it was nothint:
but a pandemonium with shout* and
hisses from nil corners The chairman
endeavored to hring the meeting to
order,   but   was   only   replied    with
Soldiers of the Q'ieen" ami other
song*, supplemented with chenrs for
npbudy iu particular, .the convention
eventually leaking up with "God
Save the Queen" ami three howU for
Davis and the chairman.
The friends of 'lie Mmtin admini*

Says an oxchsngtf-" Dukes may be sll
right," declared Mrs. Hetty Green denying
the reported engagement of her daughter
to a Spanish grandee, "but for iny part I'd
rather Sylvia would marry a ��ood wide-a-

lo give tbe British Colnmbia building

and brought closer and in the spaoe
tbns left, about 150 feet west of the

Tho changes which will be made
with the grant stand and paddock will
be snoh as to completely remodel tbat
part of the grounds. The present gran.l
stand is 400 feet long and lt has been
fouud that bo b for the finish of tne
horse races and for the platform attrat*
tions, these Mated at extremiiie. are
too far away to obtain a fair view. It
has been decided therefore to remove
195 feet from eaoh end of the stand to
what are now tbe ends of the paddock
and place tbem at suoh an angle that
those occupying seats thereiu will be
able lo obtain a fnir view of both tbe
traok and platform while the stands or
"bleachers" will be far enongb reniov
ed Irom tbe main stand not to interfere
witb tbe view of tbe traok fioin that
point. These stands wiil seat nearly
4,500 people. The centre stand will be
a very commodious one and will be
built on Ihe most modern stylo. Tie
"double deck" stands havo been found
to hnve several i. rions defects and are
no loogor being built, and are being
replaced by tnose of narrow frontage
and great depth. Tbe new-stand will
hare a frontage of 150 feet and a depth
of 110, tbns giving it a seating capacity of abont 7,000.

Ottawa, April 5.���Tbo riport of the
elevator commission, n brief .ummary
of whioh bu already been given la tbia
correspondence, waa pieiented to parliament lut night. The principal
grievance, wblcb tne commission la-
qnired into were: Flnt, tbat a vendor
ot grain was subjected to an unfair
and excessive dockage of bis grain at
the time ot ekle. Second, that double
existed u to tbe fairness of weight, allowed or need bj* owners of elevators.
Third, that ownon of elevators enjoyed
a monopoly In tbe purchase of grain by
relnalng to permit tbe election of Hat
warehouses where standard elevatm
are situated, aud were able to keep the
price of graiu below ita true value, to
tbeir own benefit and tne disadvantage
of othen wbo were especially interested In tbe grain trade, and of tbe publio
generally. At all the meetings parties wen present wbo wen Intereeled
on both sides, In regard to elevatois,
the nport lay.: " We do not detin in
any way to censure elevator owners ot
employee, u a body. Bnt it it reason,
able to believe tbat wb n tben an eo
many elevaton then will ht em-
ployeee who will take advantage of the
farmen if It is in tbeir power to do to.
It teem, to us, lhat apart from any
abuse of the power given by the elevator system, it It unfair to require a
farmer to pay to hive hi. grain paamd
through an elevator is long u either
hy loading direct on can, or by the nu
of a flat wan home nob u recommended In thit rejort, he ban tare or
deereaee that expense."
The report goes on to say that gradsx
and weight! should be made compnl-
���ory by law where the Identity of the
grain it not preserved by the elevaton.
When employed do appear to bava
dealt unfairly with the farmen, tbe
elevator ownen did not profit thenby.
Elevator aud warehouse ownen and
operators should be compelled to giro
security for the proper performance of
their duties. The wanhoue commissioners are recommended to be given
power to'dul witb shrinkage..
It farther gee. oa to My that io long
u any fumer ll hampered or hindered
from himaeif .hipping to a terminal
market, he will be mon or lest at tbl
mercy of elevator operaton. Discontent ou this point li very serious, and
without further AImuwiou theoauwe
giving rise to inch, tbli diioontent
seems to nt un Inevitable result of tbe
reslriotious nnder whioh farmen have
beeu laboring in the marketing of their
grain. We consider that to nmove
thll trouble the law ibcnld require all
railroads to furnish cara to farmen for
the shipping of their .own grain, and
should allow the Mtabllhment at shipping points if required, of flat wan-
nouses, nnder proper" regulation!, by
means of wbich a farmer who cannot
conveniently load on can direct, can,
for a comparatively small mm, obtain
for a limited number ot days the aw ol
a bin of tbe oapaoitr of a carload. Ha
oan tben transfer hll grain to tbit bia
until he acoumulatu a carload, to bt
tben at onoe shipped. Furnlihing oan
to farmen should be given u a legal
right, and not u a privilege. The re-
port also recommends the erection of
loading platform, free of charge.

Franclsqne Sarcey had a splendid libra*
17, uf which he waa very proud, and
there art' many stories told in Parts about
the singular fates, comic aud tragic, thot
overtook the librarians who successively
looked after tbe late critic's books.
The first was a released convict, who
pleaded that to be much among good
books would reform him. Sarcey, pugnacious in print; waa the kindliest of men in
practice. He yielded to the plea. Unfortunately his protege carried the ethical
core too far, for one day he decamped,
taking with him tbe bnt of Wt. Saiwy's
good books.
Tlie second was a distinctly minor dramatist, Debrit by name and debris by nature. He bad worn himself Iuto an In-
curable melancholy by persistent addiction to the humorist vaudeville habit.
Surcey saw that abstinence from further
composition could only be secured if tbe
man bnd some light occupation with a
living wage. He established him In the
vacancy left by the convict. A few days
later as the critic, returning from tbe theater, drew hti carriage np before his door
he heard a smash of shivered glass above
him, followed a minute later by whut be
no longer dared to call a dull thud on the
pavement below. Tbe woebegone libra*
rlau, wearied of life, had thrown himself
ont of the window. With bis last breath
he cursed Sarcey ai his murderer.
Third tn order was one Bernard, a
gladsome youth, whose blithe temperament promised relief from the gloom cast
by his predecessor. In tho height of.his
glee be pulled out all the books, so as to
rearrange tbem In more logical order on
the shelves. He stacked tbem Id craggy
pyramids all over the floor. But It happened to be the special day or the week
whereon Sarcey was wont to have a few
of his theatrical friends, male and female, to lunch with him. After lunch 0
dance, followed ns a matter of course.
Nothing.could dismay tbo librarian. He
whisked the pyramids to four walls and
joined In the dance. Next day he nsked
jtonnlssion to go home and see his mother. He never returned. Tbe pyramid*
had to be sorted out by Snrcey's man*
servant and put-pellmell on the shelve*

The general opinion I. that It 1. an easy
matter to identify u signature, and there
are feu. people wbo would not toy witb
posltlTsncsa tbat they could identity their
own signatures under almost auy conditions. A dlacussion by some lawyers tbt
other day make. It appear that a person
cannot at all times be sura ot bis signs*
lure, because of the nicety to which the
forger bas brought bia art.
One of the lawyers said tbat ao man
conld safely go upon the witueu stand
and swear tbat a signature shown him
was his signature. He claimed tbat in
tbe Identification of a signature a person
was largely influenced in bis decision by
tbs quality ot tbe paper upon which the
signature wus written end by what pre*
ceded or followed tbe signature. If the
name was written on a blank piece of paper, like that In common use, tbe lawyer
claimed that a witness could nut swear
with auy degree uf posltiveuess tbat tbe
signature was or wos not his own.
In support of bis argument the lawyer
uid tbat handwriting experts claim that
nu person can write bi. earn, twice exactly alike, nnd tbat in nuy litigation
where signatures are In dispute and two
signatures appear tbat are exactly alike,
tbe experts will pronounce one of them a
forgery. It may be true tbet iu general
conformation two slguaturet may be
���like, but in .sylug tbat uo two algua*
lure. wer. .nr mnde alike, the expert,
mean that ths loop, of the letter, .nd the
distance, between thorn will not be the
same, dlstluctlone which can be determined only by a system of cloae ineaatu-c-
ments. In support of this theory the experts take tbe ciso ot a fanner wbo Is
in tbe bablt ot going from bia house to
bis burn at about the usual time erery
morning. Tbey ssy that not once lu a
hundred times will bo walk In exactly tbe
ume track..
Auutber lawyer told of an experience
he had in the trial ot a cau In Tolland
county 20 or 80 yenr. ago. A uute was
In contest, and a question wns raised as
to. the genulucncss of the signature.
Ut-org. r. Blssell was called as a handwriting expert. He testlfled that the
signature on the note was a genuine signature. For tbe purpose of testing bis
ability as a handwriting expert while uu
tbe witness stand ho was given a piece of
paper and asked to write his name tbree
times, A blank spsce was left between
tbe signatures. Mr. Blssell did not know
for wbst purpose be was nsked to write
bis name, aud after tbe paper bad been
handed to the lawyer wbo examined hlsn
it was given by the lawyer to en expert
with the pen. Tbe expert wrote the
nsmo uf Mr. Blneil on the paper three
times, and after tbis was duue Mr. Blssell was recalled to tbe witness stand,
and the paper containing the six signatures was handed to bim. He was asked
to point out the signs lures that be hud
written. He endeavored to do so, but
not one of the signatures he picked out
ns having been written by himself was
his writing. Tbe three selected were
written by tbe pen expert.
Reference was made during tbe con*
rerution to a trial which occurred in
Washington, where a will wss in contest. Several experts ou handwriting
wbo testlfled st the trial claimed that tbe
will was in the handwriting of the testator. It was proved, however, thst the
entire will bsd been traced. One of tbe
relatives ot tbe deceased had found many
of tbe letten of the deceased. Words to
put Into the will wen taken from the
different letters and by a chemical process reproduced In tbe document which
made the will. John Sherman's name
wa. signed as oue of the witnesses of tbs
will, and It was alao proved that tbe signature bad been taken from a algnaturs
which Mr. Sherman bad placed to an article In General Grant'. "Memoir, of the
Tho conclusion which tbo lawyen came
to wben tbe discussion ended was that lt

When it comes to healing up old
running sores of long standing there
is no remedy equal to Burdock Blood
Bathe the sore with the B.B.B.���
that relieves the local irritation.
Take the B.B.B. internally���that
clears the blood of all impurities on
which sores thrive.
Miss D. Melissa Burke, Grindstone, Magdalen Islands, P,Q��� says:
" It Is with pleasure I speak in favor of
B.B.B. -which cured me of a running- Rore
on my leg. I consulted tbree doctors and
Ihey gave me salvo to put on, but it did no
good. Finally my leg became a solid
running sore. In fact for nearly a month
I could not put my foot to the floor.
"I wns advised to use B.B.B. and did
so. Threo bottles healed up my leg entirely no that I have never been troubled
with it since."

Kitchener at Cape Town.
Here is an extract from a tetter from
Cape Town which reveals Lord Kitchener iu a very olnu-ucterUtio light:
''The difference since Roberts and
Kitehener arrived here is so netliiug
stupendous. Ki-o'iena.r to Idles about,
walks into hotels, sniffs ufter you iiu
suhal'erns itrutthig nhout in stall nni
form, and makes himself gemi-uily
'unpleasant.' Tlie (ther dnv ho pre
sented himself before one of tliece pea-
cocky gentlemen who was lulling
about in (ho chief h"tel here, surround
ed liy a crowd of feunile admirers, ami
abruptly asked the young go .tlemm
what is name wus. The yonng gentle
man sprang up, sioed toaneiition, and
informed him. "And whai nre you doing here?' sail Kitchener. 'Hiwl' replied the bean'eons youth. I have
jnst comedown from Mudduh Rival.!'
���Oh!' said Kitchener, 'Well, per buns
you had better go back toMo'tdah
Bivuh. The train starts at 0 o'clock
to-night !* and then ho weut lu search
ofthe next staff officer.. He is a holy
terror to the gilted youth who have
ciineout here to play at picnics,"

nuol general meet ing of the Golden Rink
Co. Limited, will be held at the Columbia House on Tuesday evening, April

An Amerioan Opinion.
Here is what an American military
journal thinks of the fighting qualities
ofthe Bi-liUhers:
'-There are those who, carried sway
by their wishes, assume that fn view
of Great Britain's entanglements in
South Africa, the present is the fit
opportunity for Continental attack;
that now Is the chance for reprisals
or various sorts for all tho affronts and
insults experienced during the long
hist or ry of the 'Tight little Island.'
These assumptions leave out of no
count the very potent fact that "the
first line of defence,' the Navy, Is of
greater polencv than nt at any time in
her history; they forget that ft is quite
possible for Great Britain .to place a
quarter of a million fighting men in
the field, leaving at the -ante time her
armies to fight rhe Boers with a free
baud. Tliov forget that England Is to*
day stronger thau at suy time in her
history, for we see to day tho Colonies
taking a real part in tho defence of the
Mother Country; we see ihesa same
Colonies for the first lime excited by
the glory of conquest by forco of their
own arms; we see such ah outpouring
of loyalty as the world hah seldom
seen; In other words, we see Great
Britain able and witling to aay 'Nolle
metnngere' to the rest of the civilized
world. And what is more to the point,
that country is fully imbued with this
same spirit, and fully believes she Is
able to stand alone and fight to a finish
