SATURDAY   JULY 19,   1901.
A   UBAND   Ol.ll   MAN.
Ur. Herbert Spencer, the last of the
glorions galaxy of genius who adorned
the Victorian Era, has written another
bonk. Perhaps to future generations
tbii will be a much more momentous
event, marking the opening of tbe
twentieth century, than even the co-o*
nation of our gracious king, or settling
of tbe South African war.
Be It noted, we nowadays, look with
Infinitely more Intereit upon the fragments of ancient literature which have,
In eo wonderful a way, come down to ns
through the daik and troubled ages,
then upon any of tbe events which no
doubt shook the world to Its centre In
those early times when those immortal
things were penned. We treasure to
onr eonls the precious remnants of Greek
literature and Latin literature and do
not give ourselves over much concern
that tbe Athenians were signally defeated
at Syracuse; cr that Suipio triumphed
tt Zama.
So we crave no pardon for turning
aside from the mighty things which are
deafening ua to-day; from the splendors
that dezile our eyes aa we look up to
the imperial throne at the present time,
or tbe thrills which should, in all well-
regulated persons, course up and down
the spinal column at hearing of tbe
deedi ol derrlng do accomplished by the
accomplished but unpleasant Mr. Tracy
of Oregon; and bail with glad acclaim
thie lateat, probably the last, book from
tbe pen of England's greatest eon, now
waiting the dual call In the tranquillity
ol hie English borne.
In tbia new hook Mr. Hpsucer forsakes
tbe austere paths of philosophical speculation, per se, and unbends in a manner
moit delightful to observe:
"Old people," he says, "must have
many refiectlone in common, Doubtless
one which I have now in mind is very
familiar. For yearB past when watching the unfolding buds in ihe spring
there has come the thought shall 1 ever
again eee the buds unfold? Shall 1 ever
again be awakened at dawn hy the soug
of the thrush?"
So, even the mighty Intellect ol tbe
greateit philoiopher of our time can engage itself with tbeie tender wondering!, those iweet bnt melancholy guesses
at the unknown. Mr. Spencer appears
ln an entirely new light lu the pagei of
thil lateit contribution toEngllih literature. Tne same clear-cut delicate atyle
li there, tbe same nnenlng taste ol
phrase and expression; but there Ib
more of tbe lentiment ol ordinary human nature and far leas of tbe profound
communing! which one meeti In tbe
■•Synthetic Philosophy.''
On tbe whole he takei a cheerful view
of tht life that ll pMt; ihe note of contentment li all through tha book; like
the good kulght wbo hai done.hie devoir manfully, Ur. Spencer may fold hli
handi and await with all calm the ultimate phenomenon ot death.  He sought
truth all his life and the search beautified and ennobled bii character and Imparted a beauty and charm to his writing! which are very procious.
He cared nought for creede or dogmas
but only for truth; he honored it whtr-
ever he found it, und the whole human
race is Ida debtor. Read bie "First
Principles of Philosophy," and the conviction Is torcod upon the mind that the
love of truth was a passion with thil
glorious man—who ia not mentioned In
the list for decorations at the coronation. Haply long distant generations
of Britous will cast wreaths of laurel at
the foot of his monument in their forum.
May the eerene peace which has attended hit progress through life con*
tinue until be bids farewell to the world
and tak'8 his lonely journey down the
Sloping weys of death.
We would be willing to pay ten dollars for Tracy's opinion of the Waslnrg-
ton Btate authorities.
Between the magBHtne proprietors of.
faring a dollar a wotd (ur special articles
and the dime museums inrmising him
thousands a week to show, Tracy should
b» kept free from ennui if he so Hers
capture. •
If llie outlaw Tracy can only main-ge
to kill several score more " men," the
people of the U. S. will never consent to
hie hanging, hut will idolise him. He
should remember that one killing makes
a murder; a tit zjn, au atrocity; a score,
a massacre; a hundred, a hero.
They take a beating gracefully in Toronto. The Evening Telegram dries its
tears over tlm defeat of the Argonauts
to say this:
" John Bull mny ha a Fl tin n idled Fool
at the Wicket and a Muddied Oaf at the
(.-I ml, but the Argonauts found the old
min at home in a boat race."
Even Radicals will admit tbat L >rd
Salisbury wae an astute politician [at
times). Bismarck thought ha was "a
lath painted to look like iron," but that
might have been jealousy. Some things
in the late premier's policy are nnt. so
easily forgotten as tbe writer* uf meaningless and fulsome eromiums try to
maglne,    _________________
One of cur wide exchanges pxo""""'*
a great truth in the f illowinB lines:
" The man who talks in his advei < *.-■
ments much as be would to a pro nr#e-
tive customer over his counter wi!. not
make a mlitakp, His announcem*' Is
will be read ard will be ae convinc'1 s
as his direct talks. Thie Is the judv
ment nf ono nf the most rucceisful
merchants In the rountn — and one of
the largest sdvertisers necessarily."
What havo we done to tbe Vancouver
World 'hat we should be classed with
the flast-lc comic paper, London Punch?
Perhaps we once advanced the World
some money when it wae needed, and
hence, no doubt, thia elegant cotupll
" With apologies tn the Toronto Telegram it may be noted that the editor ol
London Punch has been knighted while
the editor of that equally humorous
journal, the Ladysmith Leader, ie not
even mentioned in despatches,"
Quite a Fleet of Then Being Built
in Scotland.
The Leader has noted tbe possibility
of tbe Olyde turbine passenger steamer
King Edward coming out to the coast
•o ply on the Viotoria* Vancouver route.
It may be Interesting to Britiih Columbians to leurn that, encouraged bv tbe
success of that steamer, the Messrs.
Panona, owners of tbe turbine patents,
have now on the stocka on tht Olyde no
fewer than seven vemli to be propelled
by thin novel method. One of thrie
vessels ie for tba British navy. Tht
flnt of the -seven, tbe passenger eteamer
Queen Alexandra, made her trial trip
on tbe Firth of Clyde a few dayi ago.
attaining a ineed of 21 58 knots in the
teeth of half a gale.
Generally speaking tht ntw turbine
steamer li not only an enlarged edition
of her predecenor, tht King Edward,
built and sailed with phenomenal iuc-
oeu lait lesion, bat embodies a number
of Improvement! whloh experience hai
luggeated, Her length li 270 feet,
breadth moulded 32 feet, and depth 11
feet 6 inchoe to main deck. A ntw feature Is a ihadt deck about 100 feet long.
Tbe fitting! and upholatering are to
neat, beautifully chaitt and inbotantlal
as to render the Queen A lex*mini'; n
very notable addition to the floating
palaces of the Clyde,
Specialty interesting, of course, ure
the engines. The main engines consist
of three separate turbines, each driving
iti own line of shafting—the centre tor
bine being high-pressure and the two
lido ones low-pressure. In ordinary
ahead-going the steam from iho boilers
it admitted to the high-pressure turbine
and, after expanding abont live iold.it
passes to the low pressure turbines, tin.!
le again expanded in them about 25-
fold, and then passes to the condensers,
the total ratio of expansion being about
125 fold, and compared with 8 (o 10 fold
ln triple-expansion reciprocating engines.
The vessel has five propellers altogether—one of about four feet diameter
on the centre line of shafting, and tour
of three feet diameter, two on pach Bide
lineof shafting. When ihe at Game i is
going full speed ahead all the lines of
shafting, central as well as side, with
their propellers, are in action; but when
coming alongside a qnay, or manoeuvring In or out of harbor, the outer shafts
only are need, thus giving the vessel all
the turning and manoeuvring efficiency
of a twin-screw steamer. Steam is supplied by a boiler of the ordinary double-
ended Scotch cylindrical type, the work
Ing pressure being 150 p nods. The
epeed of the steamer is 2\% knots an
hour. Io the Queen Alexandra a spark
arrester ia fitted which effectually prevents the emission of cinders.
The confidence of Mr, I'-trsons and the
engineers of the new Queen Alexandra
in the efficiency of tho turbine was exemplified in a speech mado by Mr, Jae,
Denny at the trial trip of tbe Queen
Alexandra. He said that on tho morning when tbe Queen Alexandra was first
tried tbey (tbe builders) promised that
it Mr. Parsons' promise were fulfilled
the vessel would do 'JI1.. knots, and iliat
if everything was squatx'-d to ita utmost
limit tbey might get 2\i.i. Everything
was not fqueeaed to 'la uimoB-. Mm it and
they got 215u knotB.

Nanaimo Merchants Intensely interested in Proposed Change.
Readers of The Lender will note from
tbe following brieklv-written communication published in the Nanaimo Free
Press IftBt Tuesday night, that our good
friends of tbe Black Diamond City are
deeply interested in the all-aged proposal
to make Ladysmith (he home port of
the steamer Joan. '• Merchant" gives
Ladysmith a good slap or two, and, incidentally pays it tlio highest kind of
compliment ae a go-ahead town. Should
the Joan come home to roost here Barely
it will not hurt Nanaimo'B business.
but help both places. Here is the letter:
Editor Frea Press,-*-1 notice in the
different papers in the province, reports that the E, &, N. R. Co. are contemplating making Nanaimo a poit of
cell by the SS. Joan and laying over at
LadyBtnith at night. In the event of
this taking place, it is no doubt done
with the intention of building Ladyemith up ae a city, which ie right iu Its
way, but It must not be done at the ex-
penieof Nanaimo. There is room for
bith cities, but we must, look after ourselves as the Liid-iHtnith people are doing Ior themselves. There are other
transportation lines looking to Nanaimo
for regular and steady eon-ice, who are
able In a financial way to make con
nn.tionB with far more powerful com
paniesthan the E. & N. R. Co., and
who will he glad to get our trade and
who will contract with ue for a staled
time at a satisfactory rate aud guarantee
perfect services on all routes, If we
stick together ae merchants and insist
that our freight shall be handled cheaply
and quickly, and as other companies
will do it, say for a period of three to
five years, on an agreement entered into
by the merchants with the transportation company and agreed to unnni-
mously, then we can tff nd tohave-iiie
Joan call or cut us altogether. We bowl
abont Ladyemith and locing tande, etc,
bnt we have the remedy in our own
hand-*; we must stick together, no use
ol one or two of us merchants Baying
rTi.t. it don't make any difference- to
i1 em which boat or company takts ihHr
freight or who gets the passenger travel,
hii'. it does. If the public insists" on
traveling only on other comp'-nies' lines
it-.'! steamers, we Hill have two eom-
panh'i bucking against one another to
get nut biieintis, and then the City of
N..n .imo will reap the honed-.

SayB the Toronto Evening Telfgram in
commenting on the brilliant Struggle <>f
the Argonaut crew agaiust the Cambridge meu at Henley:
"GloriouB defeat is Ipbs Balisfacrory
thau glorious victory, hut there is true
glory in snch a failure as the Argoimus
achieved at Henley. A better race h.r
the Grand Challenge Cup was never
rowed by a non-English crew. The line
of i quatiu sports is not the line of it<.et
resistance lhat can be followed hy those
who would humble the amateur oais-
men oi England. The English msy
have fallen behind in some lines oi
sport. They are etill kings and empir*
nis in the realm of amateur itquaties.
Thb Argonauts, after conquering the
choueu representatives of tbe American
nation of 70,000.000, have failed to dethrone thfir English feilow-tntijecls.
The Argonaut lowing club lias done
its beet for Canada. Ite repmsentatives
ut Henley havo taik-ii to'ittiTiieve the impossible, but their manjUjl htniggle waa
worthy of the fulled reot^uitiou."
