about the East coast of Vancouver Island as an apple-growing district, it is
strange that more of our orohardista are
not making at least oome sort of preparation for the near futnre. Ontario will
try to capture that market with its fine
fruit, but the demand from the United
Kingdom has grown to euch an enormous extent within the last few years,
owing to the careful packing and consequent fine condition oi the Canadian
fruit on arrival that it Is very doubtful
indeed if Ontario would care to drop
that lucrative market to "work up" tbe
Northwest one. At all events British
Columbia has tbe advantage of being
much nearer.

With to many  favourable   reports
Victoria Colonist is pleased to be
merry at the expense of The Leader.
Well, we nre mnch cotniortcd by thc
well-teBtcd tact, as noted by Juvenal—
'risu inepto, res lnoptior nulla est"—to
which sage reflection tbe Colonist ie
with the other compliments of tbe season, welcome. The Leader's assertions
on the party lines question amused the
Colonist couBumedly, but for what reason it fails to elate, which ie a pity, as
The Leader is cimlitleut that tbere was
a deal mora truth tban poetry in the
remarks published ou this bead last
week. Let us reiterate one or two of
the main points:
liven if a miserable local squabble; is
in progreBB amongst the Liberals oi
Vancouver, that is a trifle to the dieal-
iection which exists amongst tbe Conservatives of lite province, as wiib clearly
Indicated by their love (east at Bevel-
stoke some months ago, when brotherly
love did not continue, and the agapo
broke up in something like a stute of
.war; at least, of armed neutrality.
And even yet they cannot get a loader. Chieftains there are aplenty; but
no chief. Mr. Charles Wilson, Sir 0. If.
Tnpper, Premier Trior, eacb has his
following, but tbe eeveral "tails" will
not emulate lhe oxamplo of the Highland clans, who could, on occasion, Bluer
deadly feud and act together in a surprisingly effective way.
Hence, when The Leader declaiee
that the Conservative party in this province is in no condition to meet such a
quostlon as that of party lines—does not
want to meet it just now—and Ib doing
its beat to avoid the issue with a success
which we regret, Tbe Leader is not to
be credited with tbe honours duo to an
arUBplce, as the Colonist would, ironically, but as one having ordinary, observation.
Time was when we looked to the Ool-
onist as something of an augur too, bnt
lately bo little ol Delphic wisdom has
proceeded therelrom that we fear tho
Colonist iB becoming quite ordi.iary, a
matter ol seriona regret to oe wo declare.
Perhaps The Leader should feel complimented to bo noticed by ite big neighbour. Maybe, though, were tbe facte
rightly understood—and it iB next to
impossible to see tilings in their tme
perspective in this life—the compliment
would clearly appear to be on tho other
side of the matter.
By the way, it occurs to us that some
very notable spots hnve appealed uot
Infrequently on tbls large sun which
abinea in Viotoria and objects to trespass upon its domain as oracle; we
shall have pleasure in poinling out oue
or two ol those maculae Bolis, from time
to time. Perhaps they will yield aB
richly In amusement as the Colonist'!
citation Irom The Leader.
Again the fact has beon proved that
thoro are better men out of the "riniz"
tban ever went into it. The mighty
JeffrlOB, champion blackguard of the
world, or beg pardon, pugilist; wel', it
iB much tho eame thing—has met defeat
at the bands of; an'obscure amateur,
who seems to bave been a bit of a steam
engine in his way, Tbe disappointing
thing abont the prize ring is the lew
liens, of the onlright killings.
Education In The Transvaal.
Johannesburg, Dsc. "0— Some cor-
respondentia between the Dutch He-
formed Church CommiBBion and tbe
Transvaal Colonial Secretary on the
subject nt education'Ib published today.
The Commission pnt questions relating
to the establishment of schools in all
towns and wards, asked under what
direction such schools would he placed
requested Information as to the ap<
poiutment ol teachers, and inquired
whether an opportunity wonld be given
for instruction in tlie Dutch language.
Tho Colonial Seerelary, in reply, pointed out tliat schools had already been established in most of Ibe principal towns
md wardn, while others would he opened as quickly as possible. With regard
to direction, tbo Colonial Secretary
staled that the schools wero under tbe
general administrative ccntrol oi the
Iilucotion Department. All poeaible
consideration bad beeu shown to teachers who served under the late Oovernment, und opportunity was being al-
folded in the Government schools Ior
thorough instruction in Dutch where
request for such instmclion was made
by the parents, llelieiou was also being
taught on the reqnesta oi parents, tbe
medium being Dutch as lar ib possible.
Tbe Colonial Secretary concluded by
Inviting tho Dutch Church to assist in
the development ol tbe moral aud reltg
ious character oi tbe Dutch children,
Failure of Crops Causes Terrible

grain crop gathered in Finland te Valued
ut if30,lion,000. The estitnat-ed value ol
the 1002 crop is $20,030,001). While this
loss is generally distributed throughout
Finland, it is almost total in the north
em third of the country, whore are tin
Provinces of Uleabora, Kuopi, Vasn, Ht,
Michael and portions ol Vibprg, Peon
and beans generally have failed, and tie
potato crop has not beeu gathered; ihe
hay has rotted or been Bwept away by
The disaster Is due to tho late Sprint-,
the nearly continuous chilly raius md
the early frost, which waB recordtd
August 10. In the north there have
been only half a dozen days when it did
not rain. The rains also -spoiled the
fishing. So complete was the failure of
vegetation that dead birds by tho httir-
dreds have been found in tbe forest?.
The present crop failure ie the wortt
that has been experienced for* the latt
50 years. It Ib hoped, however, that
better methods of communication will
facilitate the work of relief end avoid
wholesale deaths hy huuger and typhus.
Thero are all fold about 500 parches
in Finland; 194 of these parishes ure
now nearly destitute. The AgrieuHiinil
Board has received reports firm 141)
parishes, showing thnt 106 hnve good
supplies which suffice until Chrie'im-iP
only. The unripe rye and barley which
the people are forced to use moke a bitter bread which even ihe hungry horeet*
refuBe to eat. In some parts of tbe
country breRd is baked from barley
husks and straw mixed with n lot of
flour, and is purchased by the needy
people with their hoarded Bavings. Such
bread contains very little nutriment,
and is extremely uuwholeeonie. The
peasants have expended all their money
for flour, and consequently are unable to
buy clothing.

advantage will be taken of the opportunity presented by a service of cheap
trains to and from tbls place.
This will be a chance for all to hear
music something on the scale of the
magnificent performances given annually
at Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester and
other large provincial centres in the
United Kingdom; wben the massed
choirs of whole districts sing the glorious
music of Handel, Haydn, Mozart. Men*
delssohn and otber great composers,
under the baton of famouH conductors.
The soloists on those occasions are from
the front ranks of the world's vocalists.
At the Viotoria musical festival, the
soloists are to be brought from Eugland,
so tbat for all who delight in great music
greatly done this is the chance of a lifetime. Ihe Leader hopes to publish before long full details of the performances,
By one of those annoying oversights
which nobody can account for, the name
of Mr, O. W. Scott, proprietor of the
City Bakery, wiih omitted from The
Leader's list of Christmas notice" In last
Issue, Although the notice, which fol<
lows, was duly writ en along with the
others, by some unlucky miichnnce tbe
sheet of "copy" wub mislaid und tbe
error not detected until thn pap.*r was
off the press. As Mr. Scott had undoubtedly one of tbe very beat displays
in town, tbe omission was all the mnr-3
to be regretted, and we make all apologies to him for the unfortunate oversight. What The Leader hud written
about Mr. Scott's display waB as follows:
Mr. G. W.ficnit.of tbe Oity Bakery,
First Avenue, r^ijoys the reputation of
being second to none lu his line In this
vicinity, and a visit to his fine Htore,
now filled up with choice Christmas
wares will convince anyone that his reputation in this respect rests on a very
sure foundation. Mr. Scott Is a caterer
of iong and varied experience, and ho
knows the Christmas trade as few do,
Fur a first-class -selection of fancy cakes,
uandies, choice fruits and all the delicacies and dainties without whiuh no
Christmas table Is complete, The Leader confidently recommends the Christ*
maB public to be sure snd give the City
Bakery a call, Mr. Scott can also supply the New Year's nun and cake to
Jeffries Makes a Kick.
Butte, Mout., Dec. 26.—In an interview Champion James J. Jeffries declared that the decision rendered against
him in his contest with Jack Munroe,
lhe Butte miner, had been unwarranted,
and all the young fighter waB entitled to
was the $360 forfeit.   He eaid:
-This is the first decision against me
in my whole pugilistic career. Had the
bout gone oue round more! I would
without a doubt have knocked Munroe
ont, The altitude affected me greatly,
m.d I was afraid of over exertion.
Munroe can stand much punishment,
and I believe if a tight - Is arranged between Sharkey and Munroe the miner
will win.   He can hit a stiff blow."     *
Manager Clark Ball tomorrow will
meet Munroe and endeavor to arrange a
go between Fitzslmmnns and Monro*?,
to take place ne-tt week. Several millionaires of tbe city have offered a wager
of $1000 tbat no man in the Northwest,
barHng Jeffries and Filzslaimons, can
stand against Munroe 10 rounds. This
wae announced late tonight.

Jerry toughed.
"I ehould any bo! She can make

In tlio direction of the woods, Im very.

Kathleen und Jerry looked at each

"What do you bet that she accepts

"I bet that she refuses."
"All rlghtl I'll wager you a ring for

which she Bat, with Itiirnard stretched
nt- her feet. Below the rock was a
nearly sheer descent, where ouo looked
down on tho graduated lops of pines.
Opposite row; another pine clad mountain. Tho camp and log verunda seemed a hundred miles nwny lu these
primitive fastnesses where primitive
feelings might also hold sway.
Barnard was the first to apciik.
"You know what I wanted to say to
you, Juliet."
"Must you sny it?" Bhe Interposed
pleadingly. "Cannot you leave mutton

"No, I do not want to leave mntters

"Is that all?" She raised her oyo*
brows with n quaint surprise and then
smiled nt him tenderly.
"No, thnt Isn't all. I wnnt to make

want you to make love a little—to me."
She sat up aud looked at him won*
"But you're .very Impertinent to

"Oh, yes," he spoke confidently. "A

from forehead to throat as she jumped
to her fcot nnd looked ut him defiantly.
"Sit down," he aaid gently, laying
his baud on her arm. "There; that Is*
better.   -No, you cannot draw your
hand from mine. Do. you wonder at
being spoken to like thin? I can tell
you tbo truth because you belong to
me, and thero Ib* no need for you to
blush at It."
"Mr. Barnard"—she spoke with a
chill composure of tone, although the
hand In his trembled—"you nro
strangely deceiving yourself. I urn not
like othcr gilds. Many men hnve loved
me—you know that—but It is my mis*
fortune thai: what menus so much to
others means nothing to me. I would
willingly f'eol wlmt others profess to
find so beautiful, hut I literally can*
not. Underneath this tight exterior—
It Is Hie truth I nm telling you'uow—
there dwells a mocking devil that will
not let me give way to emotion, that
analyzes and dissects everything lu
those who profess to cure for me. 1
don't suppose I will ever see a man
who is perfect—I dou't suppose he ex*
lsts—but he Is the only man who will
ever satisfy me. And I am called
henrttess, I am called a coquette because in each man who loves me I
hope to find the perfect thing thut 1
seek, nnd if Ihey aro disappointed I
nm mufih more so. Oh,' believe
thnt, Mr. Barnard. Is it uot the saddest thing lu the world to go through
life with nn Ideal thut can never be
realized V"
He was wntclilug her narrowly.
"No; It Is not the saddest thing. It
would. be Builder If yo.u could never
love without meeting thnt Ideal. But
vou can. I am far from perfect, but 1
lure swear that you will be my wife—
ny very loving wife. And I will tell
sou on my side, Jul!at, why this will
ee so—because 1 will not tnke 'No' for
uu answer. Don't speak yet! I wlll not
tnke -No" for an answer, though you
should say It ten, twenty thousund
times. Whatever you say shall mean
'Yes' to me."
Ho rose to his foot and drew her to
hint, She looked at him dazed, yet unresisting.
He put his arm around her nnd kissed
her on tlio mouth. "Say 'No' to me
uow, my sweetheart, If you can!"
"Oh," she sighed ns they walked back
to tho camp an hour later, "it Is what
I had dreamed—to be taken In spite of
myself. I did nut dare .to think—to
hope—that you would."
"Even if I am not the perfect lover?"
He laughed down nt her.
"But you are!" she flashed back at
"Hello, you two!" Jerry and Kathleen
greeted them from the veranda. "Why—
not really?" This from Kathleen, with
a questioning glance at Juliet and Barnard. "Oh, you dour things!" us they
smiled assent to her. "Let me congratulate you."
"I'vo won my bet," snld Jerry, rising
md shaking Barnard's hand heartily.
"I bet against Kathleen that Juliet
would accept yon,. Barnard."
"But Bhe didn't," said Barnard, laughing. "She didn't accept mc, although I
own that wo're engaged. You've both

In the office of the Dunedln Dally
Rush the reportorlal staff wus busily
engaged, save perhaps Topson. Ho had
just strolled In, planked himself down
In Ills chair, and after scribbling off a
short "two header" passed It Into the
city editor's room and resumed his
usual lazy attitude, feet cocked over
the top of his desk, hat ou the hack of
bis bead, while be stared Into space
and slowly puffed away at his pipe.
Topson was naturally lazy. The boys
claim be wus born thus. He was not
altogether "a good fellow," though no
oue seemed to have aught to sny
against him. He wus reserved, hnd little to say and always did his work
well, though he did take much longer
to accomplish lt than any of his colleagues.
The telephone In the city editor's
room rang. In a few minutes that Individual walked Into the reporters'
room, looked around quickly and
caught sight of the figure.of Topson,
the only Idle man lu the room.
"Topson!" he called, then hesitated a
moment. The city editor wauled some
good work accomplished. He wanted
It quick, and Topson was anything but
quick.   However, he continued:
"Go over to No. 1 and report to Pox.
He will be In tbo detective department
Got a murder story. See what It Is
wortb. Ring me up ond let me know
what it needs in the way of Illustration
and so forth. Make a good spread of
ft. but none of your long theories.
Want this thing short und breezy,
I-'lrst murder ln a month. Now, hustle!"
Topson douned bis coat and, after
slowly filling bis pipe, left tho room
with apparently no further thought
tban lf he bad been sent across to get
a paragraph about the annual mooting
of tbe.soclety of Know Nothings. Such
things as murder stories, social gatherings or pluk teas occur as mere Incidents In a reporter's dally life. It Is
all work to blm, and that Is the wny he
figures It up.
An hour bad passed since Topson left
tbe office and uo word came from blm.
The city editor wns getting restless.
Fox had returned from police bend-
quarters with another story, but beyond the fact tlmt Topson hnd reported
to blm and bad been given the detail
be knew nothing of bis whercn bouts.
Two hours passed and no Topson. It
was now 1-30 a. m., and the city ed!*
'He repenfed of his rush act.'" The
city editor laughed outright.
"Oh, what's tho uso of writing rot
like thut? The woman was killed instantly, and uo one has Been the murderer since. Havo you Interviewed him
or her, whichever it Is? If you have,
you had better say bo and I will feature It. Topson, you make mo tired,
You have got to quit this nonsense or
you go. Now tnke this copy and cut
out all thnt sort of stuff. Wive you up
to Hie house?"
"Yes, sir."
•■Then give the artist an fden of the
place for n three column cut. Walt n

He rang the bell; the ofllce boy responded.
"Toil Mnck I wnnt him down hero at

added, "Two gouts outside want to

"Oh, only thla murder affair. I want
to auk you something, Duncan. You

"Bui," Interrupted the city editor,
looking al Topson and then contluuiug
sarcastically: "If you want to kuow
anything about (his murder, ask Tup-
son, Ue Is on thc case for us. I was
just roasting him because he seems to
havo had an Interview with the murderer, and '..e"—
"Topson!" uiuttcred Detective Boss.
"Topson! Let me nee. You weren't one
of the boys up at tho house viewing
the seene with mc. How the deuce did
you get ln? I just left the place, aud
tt Is all locked up."
"By heavens!" exclaimed Fritz, nnd
he scratched his hend. "A literary
man, Topson. No, uot Topson, hut
Thompson. Ain't that what the woman's husband was—Thompson—a literary man? Whew!" And he whistled.
"Great God!" cried Duncan. "No,

That Love Letter.
"Writing poetry, Johnny", inquired
tny sister Emily, looking over my shoulder. "Love and dove, and Cupid and
stupid, and nil that sort of thing?"
I repudiated the insinuation with
"It Is a letter," I replied.
