After the Victoria delegation departed
'I'the convention got on with business at a
rapid rate, tome matters of considerable
Importance being transacted. Mr.
Joseph Martin, M.P.L., was unanimously eleoted leader; party lines In provincial politics was alto unanimously
agreed upon, aud a platform was adopted. The main items in this new platform call for early redistribution bated
on population. Government ownership
ol public utilities. Cssli bonnaes to
railways, where bonuses are considered
necessary; but never land; government
to control ratal. Construction of Coast-
Kootenay railway; a line from tbo east
toweatcoastof Vancouver Island, and
other lines. Accurate log scaling, enforcement by government inspector.
Assistance to agricultural aud mining
industries. Taxation of privileged
classes rather than indnttrial or laboring. Opposition to Increase of provincial debt except for worka chargeable
to capital. No alienation ol public
lands except to actual eettlers or bona
fide induBtiiei, but not to speculators.
No changes in present mining laws

Hon. Joseph Martin announced that

preient provincial administration during
the approaching session. Mr. John
Oliver, M.P.L., declared that be also
would support the provincial govern*
ment. Both gentlemen considered it
bstterto do that than allow the Con.

At tbe evening session on Thursday,
Mr. Joseph Martin asked the privilege
of aocopdlng tbe resolution that Sir
Wilfrid Lamier be made honorary president.   Heisid:
It il a gnat pleamre to me to have
the privilege of seconding tbe resolution.
I am in the unfnrtunate position ol
having a great deal said about me.
(Laughter.) Perhaps all ol you won't
agree with me in that, but there la one
thing I wish to repudiate, in connection
with tbat resolution, and perhaps this
the beet place to do it. It has been
stated all over the province by certain
interested partial that I am at variance
witb tbe lliminion government. Now,
Mr. Chairman and gentlemen, I want to
say hers lhat tbe person wbn makes
that statement doei to without authority.
(Applause.) I have had no quariel at
all with Sir Wilfrid Laurier or bis government. I can atand criticism, no
matter how severe, of my public acts
but to be stabbed in tbe back in this
kind ol manner ia very hard tn bear, 1
have endeavored to trace thoie slanderona
itatement! to their lonrce, bnt have
alwayi been told that so-and-so who, ol
course, could never be found, bad said
it. (Laughter.) Oa one occasion I was
told that a certain person who bad just
arrived from Ottawa had made the as-
lertion I complain of. I went immediately to that man and asked hlmilit
win io. He told me he never made
inch a itatement In bis life. Then I lad
an opportunity lo tell Sir Wilfrid him-
nil about thit itatement and asked Sir
Wilfrid II he ever authorised anyone to
make inch a statement about me, uml
Sir Wilfrid told me that he tor years
oherithed the warmest f.ienilshlp ami
consideration, aud that nothing could
hav. bean farther from hit thought tbau
to utter luoh a itatement,  (Cheers.)
II It oirtalnly true that I hav. differed
from tbem in iome things, but thit is a
vary different thing Irom laying I am
going round looking for a chance to
knife them. (Applause,) I defy any
man to point to a lime In my career
whin I did anything to anlit Ih. Con-
nrvatlva party. (Oliieri.) III hav. at
at tlmn criticised my owe party It hai
not beso to hurt it, bnt le ittsogthin it,
(Applause.) For 25 years I have been a
member of tbe Liberal party of Canada,
ln spite of its mistakes because I
believed it was consistent, and I believe
today it is tbe beet for tbe people of
Canada, (Applause.! If I aheuld eome
to the conclusion that it would be better
for tha people of Canada for the Con
■irvative party to be in power I wonld
lupport it, bat that ie very far from
likely. I do not ague witb the Dominion government's treatment ,01 the
Mongolian question. .It li onr duty ai
Liberals in this province, even as against
tbe majority of tbe Liberals of Canada,
to take the view the majority of the
people of this province desire ui to tike
in thli matter. (Oheert.) By doing
this we are not hurting but helping our
party. If the majority of Liberals in
thil province take tbat stand we will yet
bs able to convince the people ol tbe
Eaat and Canada at large of the juttice
ofourplea.  (Long continued applause.)
Another New Industry to Be Established Here at Once.
Mr, Filsgerald, a Vancouver brewer,
will arrive from that city today to take
the fint itepi toward the erection ol a
building to be used aa a brewery, on
the lot which he hai just purchased on
Firat Avenue, nearly opposite Mr. Harry
Kay'i place. The Ladysmith brewery
will manufacture high quality alei,
been and porter, and will enter tbe
field ai a vigorous competitor for the
trade of Ladyimith and neighboring

stood that he will begin operations immediately*
English Church Ladies Gin Another. Fine Entertainment,
On Friday evening in Oddfellowi'
Hall the ladiei of Ladyimith Anglican
Church gavi tbeir concert tupper snd
dance of which announcement waa
made in The Leader'i columni. It wai
an exceeding happy gathering, thanki
to the excellence ol the manage,
ment, the ample inpply ot good things,
the fine music and the first-clan floor.
All combined to make tbe affair eminently satisfactory to promoter! and pa-
Irons alike. There wai a very large attendance, which told handsomely at the
box office, it being understood tbat tbe

financial success. The dancing was kept
up until nearly 3 o'clock Saturday
Startling Statement Charging Ralph
Smith With Detestable Perfidy.
From unimpeachable lourcei The
Leader ia Informed that at the approaching union of tbe Dominion Parliament,
tb. government will Introduce . measure
impoting on the Chineie a tax on ..taring tb. country, to heavy at to be
practically prohibitive. On the Japanese
they will place no heavier bnrd.nl thin
they hive to carry sow in regard to
entering thli country.
Thit information The Leader iilna
position today to publish exclusively,
and the public may rely upon it aa cornet.
In connection with tbit itatement of
coming events in parliament The Liader
it also informed oo tbe lime autborlty
that Mr. Ralph Smith, M. P., will again
exhibit his marvellous power! ai a
political contortlon.it and hnman
chameleon Mr. Smltb will vote witb
the government on tbe Chinese
queitlon, but he will cross the floor of
the houn and vote against them oa the
Japanese clause.
Mr. Smith'i friendliness toward th.
Japanese is too well known to require
more thin mention here, but thil action
of hii ii merely to deceive hii conititu-
enti in Ninaimo. The wbol. matter
will ba carefully rehearsed with tbe Dominion ministry, and Mr. Smith will
giva them to understand that thit il
only a little vote which tbey an not to
take too lerioutty. He really den not
mean it, but he hai to keep up appear.
anew. No doubt Mr. Smith will alio
"make it all right" with bii friendi the
Japanese. II is only in fan and not
meant to do anything men than keep
up Ihe humbug which Mr. Smith bat
been practicing to successfully lor to
many yean.
The Leader asks tbe people to watch
tbe courie of eventi in parliament snd
see whether The Leader has or bu not
bnn misinformed.

"The Ladyimith Leader ie informed
that the Ooloniit is quite familiar witb

N. A. Act. In regard to the number oi
member! in the next House oi Commons,
the Colonist accepted the calculations
made by the Montreal Star, which appeared to have gone into the matter
very thoroughly. It ia purely a matter of
calculation as to whether Ontario and
tbe Maritime I'rovlncei wlll lose repre-
■entativei. We have not worked it out,
but suppose tbat the Star did,. Hai the

the Montreal Star ita absurd opinion regarding the B. N. A. Act. Tbat il, on

we are the Ladyimith Leader and tbat ia

more inclined to ute it lor shell covering than ai an authority on what any

grossly liny to go there and look it up.
It ia sbiurd to quote that paper as
something to wonhip especially on the
mere chance that the Star hai not borrowed the inlormation In queitlon
Irom tome other paper, equally wonhip.
If the Colonist is, as alleged, "quite

Sketches of the Liberal Gathering
and Notes of
From the notebook of The Loader's
reprerentativoat the Liberal Convention
lu Vancouver last with the following
snapshots are takeu of tbe more striking
Frank Burnett bean a startling facial
reiemblance to Ralph Smith, M. P., and
when he bobbed up to do battle with
Senator Templeman, some who know
Mr. Faoingbothways from Nanaimo but
not Mr. Burnett thought it wai tho
Llblaboral member. But Mr. Burnett
can thank all the gode tbat tbe resemblance Btopa right there.
Frosty pows wero much in evidence at
the convention. Senator Templeman,
the handsomest man in Victoria; Mr.
J. C. Brown, the famous Liberal Irom
New Westminster-, Mr. Alexander Wilson, ol Victoris, fearless, stalwart, spec
tacled, with lionlike locks and Victor
Hugo beard, and (he rugged characteristics which have mado him feared as nn
opponent and admired ns a champion of
right; Old man Riley, fresh (run Hi
conquest ol Victoria, smiling, placid,
smoking real havanas at the back of tho
hall and enjoying the swings and
punches being landed. And many more
eminent in Liberal ranks who might be
mentioned. It waa no stilpllngs' gathering.
Senator Templeman's voice trembled
ae he turned to Mr. Brown, and glaring
at tbat gentleman, cried in n loud voice
"I was a Liberal when you were too
cowardly to declare yourself " nnd
the rest was lost in the tumult of applause and hoobooing tbat tested the
plaster root of O'Bilsn's dancing ball,
About the last thing one wonld think ol
charging against Mr. Brown would be
Thla convention was a simpering con
vocation ol platitudinous dudes com-
pared witb tbe rlpsnnrtlng old time they
had at the convention two years ago,
wben the Davis faotion would not let
Joieph Martin speak, and three linuditd
men went straight hack to the open
arnsB ol their baboon ancestors ard
howled like lost spirits till thoirfoet
ached, There was hardly a ripple at
this convention, though It looked sometimes as if something worth the admission would ensue.
Mr. Buchanan ol Katlo wanted to get
in aa a Liberal newspaper proprietor,
and wben tbe Liberal editors were
dropped out ol the back window with a
dull thud, Mr. Buchanan electrified the
audienco by ringing himself in us a real
live reporter, intent only on taking
notes. It is funny, wben a man fails at
anything he always fall, back on tbe
"easiest job in life," reporting, which
anybody, ol course, cando-if lie line a
mind. Hut whether he line a mind or
not he seems to be able to do it to sails
faction in thia gteat country.
Mr. E. V. Bodwell, whole cause is
championed by the most blackguardly
sheet ia British Columbia, the Victoria
Pott Outlook, stood on a chair like
Napoleon on his rook at St. Helena, and
looked over Ihe angry waves ol facet
roaring around him. Behind him etood
Ur. Alexander Wilson, wonderfully like
one's ideal of King Lear. Mr. Wilson
wsi pointing dramatically at Mr, Bod-
"Ib this a Liberal meeting?" be
■bouted, (Tumult, uproar, cheers,
laughter, criei of" rati I" " sit down I"
" put him out I " The chairman answered that it waa a Liberal meeting.
" Then," roared Mr, Wilson, pointing
again at the little Victoria lawyer,
"whit li thli man, who li working In
the intereiti ol the Victoria Tories,
doing bin?"
Mr. Bodwell-lt ia false! (Oheen,
Jeer., roan ol laughter, catcall.,)
Mr. Wilson—I tell ynn thli man li In

know! It; he has no right to be hete.
(Tremendous racket, yells, boot! and

Care Should Be Exercised In Selaot-
lns erad Farniahlns It.
Not every mother lias tbe means nor
the conveniences for fitting up a well
equipped nursery for the use of her little
ones, but there Is no reason why the
room ln which the children must spend
the greater part of their time each day
should not he bright and dainty and at-
trnctlve. The room Bet aside for the children, where tbeir toys are kept and they
are allowed to play and romp and plan
their daily occupations, should be so i _
gestive of latent possibilities as to keep
the little minds aud hands pleasantly occupied, even though the most inexpensive
furnishings must be used. To be bright
end attractive does not necessitate being
It is too often the case, however, that
the children's room Ib a decidedly doleful
place, and it Is no wonder that the little
folks persist in straying from their own
particular domain, going upon little excursions to the drawing room, the library
or the kitchen, any ono of which is far
pleasanter than the quarters up stairs
that have been assigned to them.
Mothers nrguc: "Anything is good
enough for tho children when they are
young, they are so destructive, you know.
After awhile I will fix up their quarters,
but so long as they are small It doesn't
matter much whnt they have so long as
tboy are comfortable."
Would that mother bo comfortable ln a
room where the outlook gives oue only a
glimpse of back streets and brick walls?
Would she think It comfortable to catch
her toes dally in holey carpet of a bus so
dingy that it is enough to drive even a
baby into a fit of artistic despair? Would
alio be comfortable with no pictures on
the walls, which are covered only by a
solid wall paper the pattern of which Is
nnplcnsautly suggestive of all sorts of
crawling things? To be warm and have
enough to cat Is not all the comfort required by a baby, though many mothers
appear to think so, judging from ths
quarters of their little ones.
Babies aro quick to notice beauty. A
bright carpet, some pictures representing
events in child life, a sunny room where
the furniture is whole and clean—in fact,
a bright and cheerful nursery—will leave
its pleasant impression on the childish
mind long after the occupant has passed
through its portals to do battle with tbe
great world lying beyond and will be the
coruorstonc of many pleasant memories,
wherens the prisonliko dens which pass
for nurseries will never bo thought of
save with feelings of dtalike, for first lm*
pressions even in small children are the
ones to last the longest, and the early
surroundings are bound to make their
mark on tbo minds that are at that time
iu tho most receptive state.
ITovo » Home of You* Own.
They are a,wise young man and woman
who start out In their married life In i
home of their own In some place wben
they will have green grass about their
house even If It Is only a few feet. It
makes no difference how humble or bow
modest tbo house may be. Tho smallest
box of a house with a plot of green Is si
temple of common sense compared to the
finest "tint" or "boarding bouse" la the
city. If there is anything appropriate In
this life, It is that young people should
live somewhere where each day they can
sco their own unfolding lives reflected Id
the unfolding works of nature. There Is
no beginning in the home sense to a
young married life so true, so wise, so
lasting and so satisfactory as that. No
life in a city Is comparable with that
which Is lived In a small house with
green things growing over and around it,
where God's pure sunshine bathes and
sweetens every side of the house during
the day and where the surest lifeglvlng
odors that God gives to his children—the
odors of soil and growing things—are
blown into the house while we sleep.—

Something Now.
One city woman has found life on a
email farm enabled her to odd materially
to ber pin money'by utilizing products
that otherwise might oftea have brought
but little. A few years ago Mr. and Mrs.
H. H. S. Rowcll moved to Vine Hill,
near Lake Minnetonka, building tbeir
boma on a small farm already well planted with fruit. They had a taste for
country life aud chose that to gratify
themselves and aa affording a desirable
earironment for their children.
Mr. Rowell's business in the city occupies hii time quite fully, but with some
hired labor he Is able to look after bla
fruit trees and to keep up a fine garden
la his leisuro boors. Tho latter la wholly
for hia own use, but the former he could
not utilize In that way except la small
part. In most families, especially ot
suburbanites, when the men of the family are engaged in other pursuits and
merely farm as a side issue and pastime
ths marketing devolves upon the women
ot the family.
Mn. Rowell tn considering the matter
concluded that It would be easier and
simpler to market the fruit product of
tbe place in the form of jellies thou to
provide a team aad take It to market
daily. She had had no experience in
making jeUy except for nee in her own
horn, and sometime, found her undertaking a big one, but soon adjusted herself
to Iti wholesale manufacture.
"Before making my first attempt at
manufacturing jelly for Bale," Mrs. Rowell said, "I weat to see several of the
leading dealen in this city to inquire if
any of them would take homemade jelly
and received no encouragement whatever.
One seemed much amused at the Idea of
my thinking I couM make enough Jelly
for blm to consider the matter at all.
'You had better make your jelly first before you talk to me,' he said in a manner
which Implied he did not think I would
make more than a doien or two.
"Strange to Bay, that dealer hai since
been my largest patron. I have never
seen him since my interview, snd I do
not think be Is aware that he haa ever
conversed with the woman whon jelly he
has been buying.
-*I concluded to make the venture notwithstanding, believing a sale could be
found for it among private parties if not
with dealen, I made 1,121 one-half pint
glasses (sine, then I hav, always used
the one-third pint ilze), and by the 1st
et November all waa mid to private partial aad dealen, excepting what waa re-
aerred for our own un.
"It wn not aa ,aiy matter to convince
tht dealer, that they needed any, for they
would point to their pails of 'jelly,' which
they could buy at a few cent! a pound.
But aver line, then on, dealer baa taken
each year all I had to aell him. The most
emphatic refusals were from tbe leading
hotels and restaurant!, who said they
could not afford to pay mora than tub
jelly print. The pure food lawa are now
discouraging the Bale of imitation jellies,
and I think then wiU ba a much greater
demand for pure jellin.
Tn making my jelly I am very particular aa to th. condition and quality of the
fruit. It mu.t b» either somewhat green
or ju.t ripe, but not th. illghtest degree
overripe. Appiei mmt b. hind picked to
■void bring brula.d. Nothing wormy or
■tali 1. und. I alwayi try to use fruit
the urn. day It la picked aad never un
.ny,picked over twenty-four houn. I
keep th. join In earthen Jan and do all
cooking in alxtnn and eighteen quart
granitawar, kettle,. I alwaya strain the
juice twice and sever press the pulp iu
the least. My method Is to cook th,
fruit with water la thi afternoon, mash
through a colander and than pnt all In a
bag and liar, it to drip onr night In
tb, morning I itraln tb, juice again and
put up to boll, Attn boiling one-half
hour (with any amount under four quart,
twenty minute, it infflclent) I add heated
augar and again boll fifteen or ten minutes, according to amount I atlr con-
atautly before Jules begin, to boll, both
bifore aad after adding augar; alio ikim
Wlll before and after adding augar.
"I never nud try it to an If it hai Jellied. It li poured Into glaun and allowed to atand a few daya before covering.
The peat two yean I hav. used paraffin
to cover jelly, but concluded thla year to
again use whlto paper under the tin lids.
I have heard of othera complaining of
jelly fermenting when covered with the
paraffin and to a alight extent have also
had the same experience.  Two yean age
I made 2,548 glasses and UBed tbe paraffin. About four doien glasses fermented.
If any one can tell mo why those fermented and all.the othen did not, I
would be very glad to know."
Before her marriage Mrs, RoweU wai
an expert accountant aad use. the same
exict mitbodi lu her domestic accounts,
She Hid:
"I knp strict account of all Jelly made
aa to amount and cost of fruit, lugar and
number of glasses ind ill other Incidental expense!, aa fuel, labels, cartage,
etc., ao that I know exactly each year the
average cott per glass of each kind of
Jelly made. By ao doing I am enabled to
know juat what I can afford to aell tb.
Jelly for, an essential point in making It
for Bale."
