Whatever may bo said about the raoi-

is a House of relief in having a atronjj
man at the front with the courage required for epci.kins: plainly. Brititili

there is loadomhip by a statesman who
takes a serious view of a war employ*
ing moro than 300,000 British soldiers
for two year's, and who knows his own
mind. Ur. Chamberlain's speech last
night caina like a strong gale after a
stagnant cal in, lt created a great uproar among the Irish mom hers nnd intense excitement in the House, and
svkeii the laat word wns spoken it was
known that the Ooverumeut had de-
tilled upon a polioy of ret.ris.al-. in

iiballenge. It would not he an eye for

stating the enemy's country was n
natural oneration of war; thatcoticct;-
tsasioa cnsu.na had been humanely designed and asiiniiiisiered, in spits ol
terrible luortality; lhat the guerilla
warfare had degenerated into a cara-
puign of brigandage nud outrage; thnt
mistaken leniency waa the policy of
the past, and that atrocities and crimes
against the law of civilised warfare
would lie severely dealt with. Mr.
Chamberlain wns terribly in earnest,
aud represented the common sense of
the middle ulns.es of .England, nsssv aa
always the real stronghold of political
power, when he contended that the
time for illusions and sentiment had
passed, nml that a war with irresponsible brigands snd marauders must be
brought to an end in a business-liko
war.
Sir Henry Camphell-Bannermaii enacted tke part of a captain facing both
ways for tha Liberal faotions and Sir
Eslwnrd Grey was rewarded for the
courage of his convictions by flouts
and insults from the irreconcilable, on
the Nationalists side. Commandant
Kriuinger has confouaded the pro-
Boer partisans here just ns Mr. Kruger
succeeded In,doing two years ago when
he issued his ultimatum. Whether
the British were right or wrong in
ordering thf punishment of notorious
Caps rebels, tht slaughter of wounded
soldiers and captured blacks was not a
policy wbich the moat fanatic radical
oould condone. There cannot be clemency to murderers even in time of war.

SECItBTABV'S nEI'DHT.
Golden, B.C, Aug. 5, 1901.
To the Buard ol Directors and Subscribers of  Goldon Hospital Society :
Gentlemen,-1 hnve the honor to
submit to you ibe report ofthe medical
superintendent, balance sheet of our
Hospital' nnd statement of revenue and
expenditure for the year ending June
30, 1901, Kttd ask your kind atteniion
to the few remarks I will make iii n
sum*mai*y way relative to the work of
our institution for tho jinst 12 months.
Tho number of putieuts treated wore
II1,. for n total of 15C-1 days, an average of 13.fi days ppt* pntiaut, being a
decrease in the'former of ID jiatients,
as also a decrease of 444 days over last
year. This may at first seem a falling
off, but if wo consider thnt last yonr
was our record year, made so ohielly
with the gnat number of C. P. R.
patients that wero admitted, I consider
tho present yenr well up to the average, nnd the surplus of $1,0011.8'; a
satisfactory showing of lust year's
business. .'
The -preragf cost of maintenance per
dny jtsei- hem] is ti. IC, nmde upas foi
low: Botii'd, $0.65 jier day; drugs.
*0.29; snl.srits, $1.2*1; fuel aud light.
-fO.fi.S; total, $2.1fi.    '
The expenditures show an jiicrrme
of $li,'J.-i.01 over .he previous year. This
is prii.eiiu.lly due 'to the fact that ��
windmill nnd outfit hns bsen erected at
a cost of $iVJ5.a7. Considerable work
has been done in the last two yoars
beautifying the grounds, planting
shrubs and trees and making a lawn.
For this reason n supply of wnter wss
indispensikle for irrigation purposes
and for lhe house.
The revenue nccotiitt nlso shows nn
incnesse of $448.1)1, notwithstanding
that there has been a dectease of S230.-
119 in jny patients. In the previous
yenr a largo proportion of this amount
was collected from the C.P.R., vis;..
$fi(>5.57. This year ouly $329,50 ws.s
contributed by them, while thcainotint
realized from pay patlojlts," exclusive
of lho C.P.R., wns larger tbis year
thnn in former years.
No revenue wns derived this year
from entertainments. This wns owing
to the death of our much lamented
Queen, when it wns decided by the
Boara to alum .'on ull festivities, This
account also showed a gain of $181. lis
in lhe previous year.
Then on account of our grnnt having betn restored l.y the dovernmint
thia shows an increase of t'oii over
1900, and the monthly subscriptions
from the lumber camps have also in-
creased (344.8U over the previous year,
which is substantial evidence of the
busy season enjoyed by them in tht
district.
The interior of the hospital has been
painted throughout, and whirl-enamel-
led bedsteads placed in tbe general
ward, which has greatly improved iis
appeal ans'.e.
I now btg to draw your attcntissn to
tht urgent need of projier lireappliincs?s
for the hospital.   I would  al���o lug-
MEDICAL   PUfEltiKTBXDEXr's ItKrORT,
To Golden Hospital Society :
Gbstleke-i,- During the year ending June !)>h. there wereireated in the
hospital 111 patients, of whom 100
wore males and II females. The total
number of hospital dnr. were 1504, sn
average of 111 5 days per ra'h'nt. Aa
to results there were cured 100, improved 2. not improved 1, not (rented
fi, died 2, snd three remaining in the
hospital nt the end ol the year. Of
deaths one waa due to at-me tuberculosis, the other to inenlgltls, '
Our thanks is due to the crdployees
of the Hon W, C. Wells for their eon'
tribution, through Mr. A. .McDonald,
towards forming a librnry for the use
of tho patients. The monty thds contributed has been used to purchase a
considerable number of stnndnrd work.

Access so the Hssspitsl has been
greatly facilitated by the building of

bridge to tbe gate, the mud and dint

Considerable improvement its tlie appearance of the Hospital grounds is io
be cx|)er.nd when the windmill, recently erected, gets permanently into good
working order, lu the past nny attempt to beautify the grounds was off*

water. Now, however, with that difficult overcome, the lawns und fiWers.

"I am certainly growing thin," said Mr.
Alfred Whltn.au, contemplating himself
rui'fully In his mirror; "thin and hag-
pud. And, by (Icorge! there are crow's
feet coming around my eyet."
ne shaved himself vigorously for a
nioincnt, then paused, witb razor delicately poised In air. "Well, do yon wonder?", said be, addressing au Invisible
audience. "Do yun wonder-vheu you know
what a dog't life I lead? Tbe only marvel to me ia (hat I am not blind and

Having delivered himself of thlrtttte-

Mr. Whitman groaned.
"Mice, pleasant, quiet morning I'm go-

his cog,,,, "What iny sine man ever

can't Imagine. If 1 ennl.1. 1 would go ont

go and camp out in a country graveyard
(or Ibe rett of my life, lt would Ise so
much more agreeable and comfortable."
But Mr. Whitman finished hll breakfast and hit eisrsir. enjoying both ta long
as possible. "Now to face the music,"
be said as be set forth to walk up Broadway to the' hotel where tbt star whose
personal repretentativt be was lived.
On the waj-.be met a/prominent manager who stopped to greet lilm. "Bow
are you. Whitman!   How's bushiest?"
"Finer respondi-d -the personal repre-
tentative glibly. "House packed, latt

"It tbere any truth la thete rumors of

"Net the eUghtctt," replied Whitman
nnltlushlngly. "All pnisMptswl by erisry,
malice and all unchtrlttblenessv Why,
man, wbo couldn't get on with Mint Liw-
rencet Sbe'i the tweetcit natured, most

"That. All right." Interrnpted the other. And then he cocked bis eye slyly and
wickedly at Whitman, addlug: "I managed her a seateo. my boy, and I've got a
memory.  Ta. ft."
Mr. Whitman continued hit walk, chtw*
Ing tbe bitter end of reflection. "So ht'a
on." he muttered. "II i*on't bt long bolero all* Broadway knows It. Bbe't at

Well, I don't much care. She't wearing

Mr. Whitman waited In* hit star's parlor. From her bedroom h> could'hear her
voice���that voice nf "liquid gold," at one
of the best known of the drnmitle critics
hid dabbed It-raised In petulant accents,
"She's In bid humor," be said and ttared
gloomily Into hit hat
Pretently the door flew open with a
bang, and ont rushed a cyclone nf pink

"Tori tireee lung enough coming." the
napped. "It'i ten minutes past 10 now.

"Well, well," slid Whitman soothingly.
"Now don't, my dear girl. You'll makt

up. But yon know no manager allows
notes back and forth."
"If I cannct be allowed to communicate
with my friends," sobbed the lady, "I
might at well go to���to-to���jail���and be
done with It."
"There, there," said the poor personal
representative, still more soothingly. "01
course it's very annoying, but really you
mustn't give way so. Marie," to the
maid, "bring some cologne and bathe

dear, you'd better He down and compost
yourself. You won't be fit to appear thii
afternoon."
Aod, thut having soothed' and coaxed
and cajoled the fair out Into a semblance
of composure, the, wretched man set out
for the theater to take bis second dote.
"I tell you, Whitman," tald the angry
manager, "your itar hat got the twellesl

"So am I," thought tbe unfortunate
personal representative. But aloud he
said: "That's all ..right. Yon've got to
treat Miss Lawrence like a lady or 111
know tbe reason why."
After more angry and futile talk the
two separated, and Mr. Aif red Whitman
felt tbat his exhausted frame required
support., So he went to a convenient
cafe.and ordered one, two and three supports, which he drank as rapidly at possible.
After this life looked somewhat brighter, tnd he returned to the theater for the

The happincsa of home life depenii
largely on the health of the wife and
mother. When her strength it unequal
to the daily cares and duties of home,
tlie evening hour finds her utterly worn
out, too tired to talk, too weary to read.
At first even she is glad to have her
husband go out for the evening. She
wants rest and quiet at any price. And
so the foundation for marital misery ia
often laid in ill-health.
But when the housewife is healthy
and strong she finds iu her day's duties
only a sufficient outlet for lier energy.
She looks forward all day to the evening
I hour spent with  her  husband over a
During ihe first act a curd was sent to
bim. Hc glanced nt It and reasl the
name of a well known woman, a special
writer for one of the big Sunday papers.
Again the look ssf glossm descended cu bis
countenance. Bnt he sent out word he
wonld see tbe lady. In tripped a businesslike little woman witb a frank, audacious face. "How do you do, Mr. Whitman?" tht tald. "How were you pleased
with the pictures last Sunday?"    .
"Why, I thought them very good Indeed," be said hesitatingly, "but"���
"Didn't Miss Lawrence like them?"
The newspaper woman jumped quickly
to conclusions.
"No, I can't sny she did," Bald tbe personal representative. "She was very
mnch upset." I
'That's a pity. Perhaps 1 had better
see her."- |
But Mr. Whitman rose from his sett
in nhirm. "My denr yonng Indy," he
suld tri'mtslnitsly, "ps-rhaps yon had better not. 1 hnph.iv ynu. if you have any

"Is It so bail ns IhiilV" laughed the
ns'wspnjsi'r wsiuiun. !
"Il's���it's "Worse." he said. "Dou't'
yssi. know thut tit'tors and actresses nre
til children? And they've gist (is be coaxed ...id en.l.lli'il nnd petted like children. '
Miss I.nsvi's'iii'i, des lured those pictures
sue a libel ami threatens to sue your paper. So you would best uw try to set
her."

At the close ot the matinee Mr. Whitman was summoned to his star's dressing
room. Her maid was Jnst throwing her
chinchilla bordered mantle over her shoulders as he knocked.
"My phytftlan was In front this afternoon." she began, "I'd like to know wby
be wasn't given n box? And what do the
stage carpenters mean by kicking my
dog out of the wings? And that out-
rnit.ous Mine. Chiffon has not tent my
kook, or passed iu quiet conversation.
And every evening so spent draws the
wife nearer to the husband aud knits
together the twain who are "one flesh"
in the higher unity of one mind.
Every womnu sliould know that the
general health depends on the local
womanly health. Irregularity, weakening drains, inflamui.i'ion.-ulceration and

What is the Value of an
Assay.
(Br niton IlAsmiis, .if ��.. F.I.C.)
At first sight this seems to be u
strange question, but when - one consolers what is usually meant when an
assay is quoted in reference lo a piece
of rock from a mining property, it is
qnoted as being the value of the ledge,
and this Is what it is not in the majority of cases. An assay sample to represent the riilue of ti ledge must
necessarily consist of the rock that is
representative of all the different kinds
of rock or gangue that occur in the ledge
In ns nearly as possible the same proportion its they ocrur naturally. This
is what tho owners of properties neg
leet to do. Tl.ey take a sample of the
ore only, separating the gangue ns
much ns possible, in fact they concentrate the ore on the property aud again
in Ibe assayer's office, before bunding
in the sample for assay, the result
being nn nanny return showing the
values of the ore in a highly concentrated furin, in many cases 20 times us
high us it should bu, this result being
handed round as an average of the
iedge; '.be owner fully believing ull Iho
time hu has been conscientiously sampling the ore, He ban not, but simply
picking out the best pieces. Thia |ilan
is very often adopted by |srospectors,
hut the more usual one is to break off
pieces of rock from the ledge and keep
the best looking ones, and have the
best of whut l.e has kept as��ayed. This
plan, although giving much too high
a result, is not nearly so bnd ns the
first, but still is apt to lend to disastrous results as the following case
will show which ban|.ened three or
four s ears ago.

Palliser Pabulum
From Our Oun Correspondent.
Palliser, July 7.���Viewed from whatever atandpoiut one may choose the
administration of heathen Oriental
immigrants into this count ry bus not
one redeeming phase, They bring
with tbem all their barbaric customs
and all their hideous vices wiih which
tliey defy our oiviiiastion or Christianity to eradicate. They reduce Ihe
labor market to a standard that no
white man can complete or subsist in
it, while they becoino a ready prey for
thn designing labor contractor who. in
collusion with tbermployer, robs them
of their wage and profits enormously
out of iheir ignorance. The taak of
civilisiing and christianizing heathens
here is too great when weighed against
the contaminating influence they exert
over our own depraved race. The
social habits of the Chiucse aud Japanese are far fr.uu being such thnt
would elevate the youib or their
elders and their economic worth lo the
country ia uii since tbey deport their
money, iheir bones anil iheir clothes
Britain's other sslf governing colonies
have excluded tbem from entry; only
Canada, poor politically damned Cauada, tolerates. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
allows that tbey are a necessary evil.
The Right Hon. Joae|sh Chamberlain,
Colonial Secretary urge, the Dominion
Government to bear with the Japanese
us it might disturb the entente conliule
existing he-ween Britain nnd Japan
to restrict their immigration. Iu other
worjs, Canadians must suffsr that the
Right Hun.'gentleman may use Japan
as a sort of buffer between 'he lion and
tl.e hear. Puruhared friendship csn
neyer en-lure and If the Japs and other
Oriental olTi.l are lo be dumped on' our
shores to aui't Dr.wiring stitet diplomats it would he hotter by far to sever
the friendly tie with the Japs thau to
alienatu a portion. . nt least, of His
Majesty's loyal subjects. Soma religious xunlots favor Oriental immigration
as a means of christianizing, them.
They do not know Ihe bible for in it
there ia lhe command: '-Thou shall
have no dealings witb ihem," meaning
the heathen, This was s|.okan to tbe
Israelites of old and it la equally applicable to the Israel of today: (Vide
Baut. 7.) Everyonc.who loves hiafeilow
creatures, pity a ibe poor heal hen but
that does not carry with it the obligation to tolerate them in our midat.
Send missionaries and money to Japan
and China but for self ��� preservation
and self respect of whliemen the bea*
then must be converted in hia own
country where bis degrading habits
will do least harm.
