of coal, which the west has not, The
settlers there are doing well, as they

pleased. He is confident the long and
anxiously looked for mining era in

have been extremely skeptical of the

of that section of the Province."

Free Trntlii vs. Protection.--Memories
of the Past.
Etlitar GOLDEN Era :
Salmon River. East Kootenay,
June 13th, 189...
Sir, -As the approaching political
���fight will bo lor and against the above
it might nol be out of place to look
into ho'h systems. The leader of the
Liberal party points to England ; let
us be candid and compare thut busy-
isle to this country. Canada is, first
and foremost, an agricultural country.
Nature has given us giant resources,
but towering above all stands our agricultural interests. We are producers
not (or ourselves alone but for a large
���share of the human family: To handle
land with success requires machinery
therefore we must do a little manufacturing as one is a help to the other.
A weak state cannot cope successfully
with a strong powerful rival without
some protection. This wns the position ot our manufacturers when they
received protection; we are now asked
by the Liberals to abolish protection
and udopt free trade, as the only sure
way to national greatness. In looking
at the agriculturalist of England under
free taade, we find that he has gradually but surely been pushed to the
wall, until a large percentage, unable
any longer to stand the pressure, have
sought protected countries to carry on
their operations in, and we find today that the British agriculturalist is
producing, both in Canada and the
IJnittd States, produce not lor home
consumption but actually shipping the
same at a profit to the freo trade home
lie left, where he could not make ends
meet, nnd anyone who has watched
the course of events must admit there
is a strong undercurrent of feeling in
Great Britain to again establish the
corn laws in an modified form, for no
country either in ancient or modern
times is secure without a sound agricultural policy for in the old saying,
"Land is perpetual man, and from the
lady's kid slipper to the leather ir her
hat all are from the soil." Take a
look at our own province and see the
effects of freo trade. The nations of
the world will not require much in-
'lucemeut io accept our gold and silver.
Kootenay alone could in ten years
time pay oft the little obligation China
lias incurred with Japan nnd still
keep supplies in camp. Our live
stock in round numbers amounts to
about two hundred thousand head,
would dedreciato at least seven dollars
per head, this would be a loss at one
blow of one and a half million dollars
and would apply, to hundreds of
thousands of animals,yet unborn. We
have a market within-our province of
all home produce und can extend a
helping hand to our struggling brother
in the Territories, and wo are asked
to throw up these advantages for
���what, in return a cold McKinley wall
���where there is not a loop hole to pass
through without paying toll.    This
might ho divine but it is hardly
humane; we have a small per cent of
the former class iu Cauada, but tho
majority belong to the latter. The
Liberal party remind me of the Mongolian race, not that they all wear
queues, altho a large per cent have a
cue of their own to play, " whisper it
softly," I refer to their habits of imitation-John is a poor inventor but
quick of imitation. Last election the
aged premier appealed to the patriotism
of the Canadian people for support
from Atlantic to Pacific, he received it.
Onr Liberal friends are now beating
their breasts in a frantio manner and
proclaiming their loyalty from the
house tops. They seem to forget the
nut was cracked five years a-,;o, the
meat extracted and In some mysterious
manner they have got hold of the
empty shell and are now offering the
same to the people of Canada as the
geimino article. When the Iree trado
policy was broached, the people of
Uncle Sam wanted a more liberal
trado policy, tho Democrats under
that, cry went into office, we will do
likewise solemnized our liberal friends,
bnt before tbey can muster, another
wave has swept over tho republic, the
democrats have gone and a strong
protective party has taken their place,
yet in tbe face of that we are requested
to adopt free trade. I am reminded of
a little advice that was given to the
people of Canada, I refer to the historian Mr. Fronde, who savs, "If
Canadians are wise they will be guided in their policy by* the people to the
south." Will Canada take that advico
coming from such a quarter, it is not
to be lii'htlv thrown aside. Australia
rejected it, yet the very disaster that
eagle eye of his foresaw, happened a
few years later, I refer to their financial policy which brought ruin nnd
sorrow to so many people there. Will
wo Canadians of five million adopt
free trade with a giant republic along
our border for near three thousand
miles, a people twelve to ono, tho
twelve to trade free the one to pny toll
How long would such a policy last?
nay, more, how long would such n
people last under such a policy V We
would soon lie in harder lines thnn the
Israelites of old. As a boy I often
went up to the House of Commons to
hear the debates and ns I write
memory runs back to the past and the
life-like picture of some of Canada's
greatest statesmen conies to mind, at
that time Manitoba was struggling
for existence, British Columbia, likewise the mighty Territories between,
was a blank. Since then I have travelled over that territory, first with
animals later by steam and the question has often come to my mind why
the Liberals in those days wished to
make Ontario the western boundary of
Canada, yet such seemed their policy,
a policy all liberal-minded men now
admit was cramped, warped and narrow. When now travelling over the
mineral region of Lake Superior, the
smiling prairie of a thousand miles

mountains of British Columbia on

The postmaster at Chelsea station had
a conscience, of course. Everybody has.
The public servants into whose hands
the government's postal affairs are intrusted are not generally credited with
being the possessors of such an inconvenient article, but the worthy officials
nf the above-mentioned point woe an exception to tlie rule.
An explanation of that statement
nmy be .given by telling yon that not
only waa Silas Gardiner the distributor
of the malls, bnt a deacon in the Baptist church ns well, so, although that
same conscience was couiposod of many
of tho ingredients that also are constituent parts of India rubber, and although
it oft-times became so elastic as to allow
of bis reading postal cards, letters not
Fccurely sealed and so forth, we may be
sure that never was he found guilty of
such nn offence .without experiencing
many severe twinges of that trouble*
eouie monitor.
One Thusday afternoon there came an
unusually strong temptation. The four
o'clock mall came in. bringing a letter
that sent the blood surging in crimson
waves over Postmaster Gardiner's face
and mode Ms heart beat against its prison like a trip hammer.
It was not a very important 1. -king
letter; just a small, square white envelope addressed in an even business
hand, bnt it was the name that produced the postmaster's paroxysm of
enriositr. It waa no remarkable thing
for Miss Millicent Darrell to be the recipient of letters, bnt never before had
she received one in the free, dashing
hand that graced the envelope that lay
lief ore bim. He well knew that, for not
a missive for Miss Darrell had passed
through the office that he had not examined the writing closely.
Through the long hours of the evening while tbe neighbors had congregated in the little room there was a conflict in the postmaster's mind. Like the
Danish prince, he was trying to solve
the qnealion: "To be or not to lie." "To
do or not to do." By twenty minutes to
nine the little room was deserted. Securely fastening the outer door and the
one communicating with tho sitting*
room of his sister's family, the postmaster removed the oil lamp from its accustomed place on the bracket on the wall to
his desk in the corner and once more
took up Millicent's letter.
lie held it up to the light; hepntit
buck in box No. 13; he took it np and
looked at it again, and then carefully
broke the seal and removed the closely
written sheets from tbeir covering. He
looked at theiu a few minutes as thoy
lay there exposed to viow as if wondering how he dared to lie so bold. But the
Rubicon wns crossed; there wss no re*
tro'iting, nnd he pushed courageously
forward and read Miss Millicent's letter.
The postmaster's lifo had always been
very prosaic. There was one thing in
his remembrance that had evor shed a
to.eute glow over the commonplace,
monotonous oxpiinse of years he had
lived through, and that was an nn*
avowed affection for Millicent Darrell.
Ho had worshipped her from afar when
they had gone to school together at the
little red brick house at the foot of the
hill. Time had bnt served to strengthen
this childish devotion. Through youth
and the first years of his manhood she
hnd been his star of Bethlehem, as it
were, fully ss unapproachable as though
she had in reality occupied a position in
a world far beyond the sphere wherein
he dwelt
She may have been aware of the homage thnt was hers, but had given no encouragement to tbe admirer, who was
too faint-hearted to give expression to
his regard by word or sign, but Who
hopelessly waited for some one else to
win the prize that he so much valued.
But for reasons best known to hetself
alone Miss Darrell preferred a life of
single blessedness to one of double
wretchedness, and passed contentedly
nn I comfortably into n state of old*"
mu leulio-iil, iiiiu the postmaster settled
i.otvn into a chronic, lovelorn melnn
trholy, from wiiioh coiniitoso condition
iio was partially aroused now and then
uy the thought thut bIio might yet
change her inind und honor some unfortunate being with her heart and hand.
Bo that wns the situation when Miss
larroll went down to the seashore one
liiiniiir to visit her brother. Silas
Gardiner's heart was filled with mis-
iriviilgs during her absence, lest what
lie had lung feiireil should come to puss.
It was iiliiu.t u week niter her return, in
llie autumn, that the carvier brought
thu letter, lho very appeul'niice at which
wns sulUciuiit tu produce such agitation
in hi.-r lirrnst. r.nd a pertinal of which
confiimod his insti'i'tivti belief in
some entangling nllinirc. Thnt night,
as he read und reread tho words that
were Intended for ".ilss ,\ illlcent's eyes
alone, his heart grew heavy, for every
line breathed forth nn unmistakable devotion, which judging from the frequent
allusions to future happiness, was not
It was near morning when he completed his delilrelations over the letter
and carefully located it iu a seldom-
used compartment of his desk. The
next d.iy Mi-is Dnrroll drove over to the
offlco with her niece and namesake, who
had accnuip inied hor on her return to
Chelsea r.tiu'nn. and Inquired for mail.
At thc disappointment "Is thnt alii"
with which I oth Indiej received the contents of box No. 13, a wave of repentance rolled over lhe postmaster's bouI
and the letter secreted in his private
desk appeared before him like an accusing angel.
During the next fow weeks letters
came for Miss Darrell on nn averngeof
once a dny���letters whoso tone ranged
through the various phases of human
passion, from most tender affection to
extreme auger at their failure to elicit a
reply, nnd each, as it arrived, wns read
by Mr. Gardiner with a sort of grim satisfaction and deposited witb its predecessors.
Miss Millicent's niece was crying. "I
can't understand it;" she said to her
elderly relative between (robs. "I!ve
been here live weeks and not a word
have I hoard from Charles, What can
i: mean?"
"I'm not at nil surprised It's just as
I expected," Miss Millicent answered,
with a half triumphant air. "Didn't I
tell you so! Don't yon remember what I
said to yon the first day I saw him about
deceit ami rascality being depicted upon
his conntennncel And I consider myself
a pretty good judge of human nature.
Of course he's never write to you. He's
just been making a fool of yon this
In the r'ccsses of her heart'Miss Darrell may have sympathized with her
niece, but she only expressed contempt
for such a roiuautic trust in the sincerity of the v.-ouor who had been known
but ono summer, and the discussion
ended tliere.
Charles Williams was puzzled and
angry, decidedly so. To the best of bis
knowledge he had written thirty-five
letters to Miss Millicent Darrell. the
younger, in as niiuiy days, not one of
which she hud deemed worthy of an answer.
"She's jnst like the rest of 'em," he
told his best friend when lamenting tbe
"So innocent and true sho seemed,
too. What a f.nil I wus to believe her.
She's nothing but a confounded flirt
I'll think no more about her."
Contrary u> hts declaration of fi->rg"t-
fulness, he t hunch mure about her than
over, nud the consequence was that, he
went down In Chelsea station the next
day to invrsiir-nte tiio case. The explanations which I'ire.'tlv followed con

'"Yon know everything about them,"
she snid, looking at nlm unflinchingly.

for weeks. I understand it all now.
They were Milly's love letters, nnd yon

Silas Gardiner, to resort to such trickery to prevent some; other person from

He went to his desk, and taking, out

"Here they are. I pray yon not to expose me. I did it because of my love
for yon.   I conld not bear���"
He said no more. It was not necessary. He conld not have made a mora

"Why don't yon post a placard telling
yonr customers how to drink milkt" said
a customer to a milk dealer after a man
that had just emptied Ma glass at two
gulps had gone out "Milk is food and
should be treated as such," continued
the speaker. ' -It should be drank slowly in small sips, so that the saliva shall
lie mixed With it. Itia better, indeed,
to eat something as one drinks, so as to
excite the flow; of saliva. When the
doctors put their patients on the exclusive milk diet they recommend the use
of chewing gum during the continuance
ot the regimen. That is why all the
makers of chewing gum advertise their

Prank, nt Flnrlds. Wood-Rat..
Tho latest narrative of the queer doing,
of tho Florida wood-rat comes from Mrs.
C. V. Latham of.Mlcoo, Fla. Provlnw
to tho destruction by fire ot the old Oak
Lodge, year before last, it waa often visited by a pair of very soeiablo and quite
harmless wood-rate, who nested in a pnl-
lritto hut near by, and made it their
1 uue until some cats name into tho family. The wood-rats were big-eyed, handsome creatures without tbe vicious look
of the common rat, wtth fine, yellowish-
gray fur, white fost, and white under
pans, ltnsmuoh as thoy never destroyed
anything save a pair of Mrs. Latham's
shoe-strings, which they had to cut in
order to got them out of tho eye-lot holes,
they wore tolerated about thn promises,
and here are some of the queer things

A Pall.al Model.
Thn other morning, says a letter from
Algiers, an English lady who desired to
take tho portrait of a ragged, but "picturesque" Moor, whom she met on tho
street, got hlm in' position, but found on
examination that she had neglected to
bril'g an important part of her kodak.
So sho ran buck to the hotel, two blocks
away. She there met some dear friends
from Loudon who had lust arrived; so
she forgot all about the Moor and tho
kodak. After dinner,. eight o'clock, she
rciiii'inliered', so, with an escort, she hur*
rletl to tho spot. There the old Moor sat,
jusl as she hnd left him, facing the Instrument. "Long time take that pletur," he
snid. He hail boon there since ten o'clock

I EltltOlt  IN TURRET.
Sofia, Bulgaria, June 17.���Advices
were received here yesterday from
Krooshowa, Macedonia, telling of two
startling occurrences which may be
followed by much more serious trouble
in that district. The first disturbance
it is said, was caused by a Turkish
policeman, who killed a young woman
on tho eve of her marriage to a Roumanian The girl's two brothers
swore vengeance, and the Turkish
policeman and one of his comrades
were killed by them shortly after the
death of the girl. This caused great
excitement in the neighborhood aud
attempts were made to capture the
brothers, who sought refuge in a
house which they prepared to defend
to the utmost. This building was
eventually surrounded by the Turkish
police and the brothers opened fire
upon them with guns and revolvers
from the windows of tbe bouse and
during the affair killed two more gendarmes. But the two brothers were
themselves killed by the Turkish
police. The firing caused wild excitement everywhere in the neighborhood
and the oominander of the Turkish
troops in that district was obliged to
send for reinforcements in order to
maintain order.
The second story is even more startling than the first. According to advices from the Roumanian village of
Waltsch, in the same district, that
place was recently invaded, during
the absence of the male portion of its
population by a band of Albanian brigands, The women of Waltsch, however, seized upon whatever weapons
they could get hold of, and made a
determined resistance to the brigands,
who, during the fight which followed,
killed nine ol the heroic women, burned
the village to the ground, seized all
the cattle and drove them away
towards their stronghold. Naturally,
tho affair has aroused the most intense
indignation against the brigands and
a strong detachment of troops has
been sent in pursuit of them.
London, June 17.-Rational dress
enthusiasts assembled in great force
at tho Cavendish rooms in thc west
end tho other night at tbe invitation
of tho '��� Healthy and Artistic Dress
Association." Tbe gathering was
truly remarkable for tho manner in
which grown up men and women made
fools of themselves. All the women
wore knickerbockers and most of the
men disported themselves in knee
breeches, silk stockings anil colored
garters, a fjw adding scarlet dress
coats. Somo eccentric females, wore
sandals instead of boots, the Inter it
seems, being hygenicully accursed and
of course abhorred. The corset was
conspicuously absent. The speeches
were defiant, but a vein of melancholy
run through all of them. It was admitted that the great movement made
little progress owing to tbe tyranny
of fashion. Women continued to wear
corsets despite the demonstrable fact
that tho average size of  the  female

London, June 17.���All manner of
stories are circulated about the prison
lifo of Oscat Wilde, including persistent reports that he is in a state of
mental and physical collapse. The
fact is that he is perfectly sound in
mind and body. At first he suffered
acutely, while Taylor took his sentence
as cool.v as an old hand. Wilde was
terribly cast dowu and was in a state
of semi-collapse in his cell at Newgate
prior to his transfer to Pentonville.
There he rapidly recovered and something of the jaunty and rather defiant
demeanor which he displayed at his
first trial re-appeared. He, to all
appearances is reconciled to his fate.
His condition is, he gives littlo trouble
and abides by the rules, which becomes
less irksome in consequence.
Le Siecle of Paris, says that a few
days previous to the Queensbury suit
Oscar Wilde had completed a new
comedy entitled " Friends." The Italian actor Ermette Saccone, has just
purchased the right of representation
and will introduce the comedy before
n Milan audience at the commencement
of the autumn season. A well known
Italian dramatist has consented to
undertake the translation. Three of
Wildes plays are now being performed
in England.
London, June 17.���An application
was made to-day for the release of
Oscar Wilde, pending steps to be .taken
for a new trial. The application was
