LADYSMITH,      -      -      ■     B. C
On Wednesday afternoon Meearp. John
W. Coburn, William Beveridge and T.
L. Grahame representing the Citizens'
Committee and Board of Trade, waited
upon the Government at the Legislative
Building, Viotoria, and were very con-
ttously received.    Tho delegates made
smith's just claims and needa   very
strongly before the ministers.    Specie)
reference wae made to the questions of
Btreets, the trails from Lidyemith to the
neighboring   campa, the small debts
eonrt and the mining recorder's office.
The Government promised to give tbe
varioiiB matters submitted their earnest
consideration and to advise Ihe deputation in duo time rs to the course   to be
adopted.    Tho deputation took their
leave very much pleated and encouraged
with the result of the conference, and
they will make a report to tlio regular
meeting of the Executive of the Board
of Trade next Monday eveuing, and also
io the monthly general meeting of the
Board to be held the first Monday even*
ing in April.
The Leader is in a position to eay, as
a result of the interview reported in the
foregoing paragraphs, that Ladysmith is
distinctly "all right."
All Ready for a Good Time
Great praiso isdua to the committee
I of ladies of the Anglican Church, wbo
have nearly completed their arrangements for tiie funny dress bill and entertainment oa Tuesday evening.
It goes without saying that all wlo
attend that festival will have a thoroughly good time of it.
The ladies of the Ladysmith English
church iiave proved on several previous
occasions what they can do in tbe way
of providing a first rate evening's er j >y-
ment, but Tbe Leader Is confidentially
informed that the affair on Tuesday will
eclipee all the other entertainments ever
given under the eame auspices here.
Those who ean't dance, or don't eare
to dance, will have ample opportunity
to amuse themselves In the rooms upstairs in the Oddfellows' hall, where
bagatelle, checkers, carda and even the
spell-binding ping-pong may be found.
The tickets are selling very well, and a.
record attendance is expected.

Will Hoicbery Stand Firm?
Lord Rosebery (says he "World")bas
hitherto been a secretly disintegrating
force. He has now concentrated hie
energies into an act of open violence,
For the Qrst time since he retired from
the Liberal leadership be has enunciated
a definite opinion and taken a decisive
step. We will hope that the period of j
vacillation and chlllyshally of half-
formed opinions and hesitating and unfulfilled intentions, has come to an end,
"What I have said, I have not said;
what I have written, I have not written," has been tbe no avowed and un-
I conscious but not less obviously dominating maxim of Lord Koeebery'e eon*
duct. A period of distinct purpose, and
of steady action upon tbat purpose, mav
have succeeded. But it is impossible to
be very confident.

-.lory ot a Scotch Scurry*
Colonel Shiel, who fought In Ihe Boer
ranks aud waa made prisoner, was asked
bow he had been treated by the Britiih
and he replied, "fairly well, with tbe
exception ol a young Highlander wbo
waa on sentry over me wben wounded.
The Highlander, each time he passed
me, ipat upon me, and I remonstrated, laying I was hia superior officer, aud
that I was wonnded in Ihe foot, that the
night was bitterly cold, and that I had
no blankets. Tbe Highlander at flnt
took no notice of my remarks, but continued to march up and down. At last
he stopped in fiont of me, took t ff hii
great coat and wrapped me up, bound
up my foot, placed aometbing under my
head, and continued hia 'sentry-go,
About ten minutes liter he itopped
again in front of me and eaid .'—'Look

A Ileal Imperial Navy.

Commons last night that at the cooler-
I ence which is to take place thli year between tbe British Government and tho
representative! ol all tbe Colonies the
queition will he raised whether the colonies should contribute something towards the maintenance of our naval armaments hae created widespread inter-
tereet and even enthusiasm lo Parliamentary lobby. Should it be decided
at the coming conference, as most people believe it will, thiitea-ih of the colon-
lea shall agree to t rov de a certain number nf men nl -var tho first slop will
have bean taken towards hrloaing out
. gre.it Imperial federation, Thil li .
giant subject, hut a large number of politicians think tbe time bat arrived when
it should he seriously considered. A
federation of all tbe Britain! would not
only provide a Navy of colossal power,
but would lie the h.-et Bafeguard lor the
world'e peace.

Victoria, B. C, March 28-Beal hud

to midnight, mainly dne to the miadir*

of theaasembly by "dressing down"

The most itrenuoui oppoiition ,'to tba

A pirty of Victorian! were amused at
an old farmtr, who looked al if he hid
just itepped out of tbe pegei of Puck or
Judge, who approached them Ja day or
two igo and aiked them whit tbey

large piece of high grade copper ore.
"Where d'ye find this, Pa?" enquired
an irreverent member of tbe pirty.
"Within twenty mile   o'   Victoria,
Son," ipoke up tbe patriarch iprucely.
"Much ol it?"
The elderly parly looked eeqniringly
around, then pointing to a peak ot the
Sook. range, "See yon hill, over thin?"
"Well, it'a blggei'n yon fellow."
" Yei, bnt how much copper il there

"Alnt I tellin'ye? The pile', the lite

South Africa haa lost the man who did
more than all the otheri who ever tried,
to bring that vait and wealthy region
under tbe Britiih flag, While we frankly confen that we never could be counted amongit thoie who worshipped with
idolatroui intensity thia man and hii
method!, we ai Irankiy admit that he
had ln him many ol the element! oi true
greatness. More than any Englishman
ol the latter generation! he embodied
the grand ideali ol the Elizabethan
conqueror!. He law life on a icale nl
. magnitude comparable only with the
vilw of Napoleon Boniparte, on a scale
that often ap, lied hii associates and
earned for bio the title of dreamer from
the practical people who peep about in
thil world. Great almoit beyond com
putation were tbe service! ol Cecil
Rbodei to the Empire, yet bii mme can
never be Ireed Irom Ihe taint ol blood-
gulltineii; like hii great prototype,
Napoleon, ho would break tlie lew eggs
to have the omelette; and iike all really
grind mindi hi! wai thiroughly imbued with the democratic idea. He wae
a republican; he wai never airaid to lay
10; he admired the United Statei ol
America, and one oi hie dreimi wu to
make South Al.ica the same, witb
Britiih flag over tbat munificent country. That he wai the prime instigator
and mover in the Jameson raid li
questionable; that he bid more to do
than any otbei individual with bringing
on the preient Boer war ia now well-
known. Bnt like a man be bore hie
Ihire—even forfeited hii life; lor tbe
privation! endured ln tbe liege of Kim
barley undoubtedly cut short hii great
career. England hu loat a ton whom
like lb. will not toon look upon, and
the Empire a mm who did ai much Ior
ill glory and expansion aa did Julius
Caesar for Rome. And like Caesar be
hu been removed Irom the arena with
many ol hii great projecti unfulfilled,
leaving behind him a name and an example tbat will excite the emulation of
generation! of Englishmen yet unborn
"There are typei ol men whoie character! he who runi may read. The politician whole act! and purpose! are cor*
rupt il rarely misunderstood by men ol
fair intelligence ind information. The
statesman who ia thoroughly upright,
intelligent, (earless, and consistent la
segregated from other types without
difficulty. The mm lent readily rated
aright in the estimation ol the general
public li the man of upright personal
character and pure motive! wbo ii led
into error in difficult problem! oi Slate
by a lack cl that clear logical perception
which enable! ono to lee thing! in their
true relations."
The foregoing la a portrait drawn by
"An American," of the late William
MrKinley, In the March number ol tbe
Westminster Review. Had he bad in
mind Hon, Jamei Dunsmuir, premier cl
British Columbia, he could not have
done better in limning the character ol
the man. Llko the late aesaseinaied
preaidentoi the United States, Hon,
Mr, Dunimuir li distinguished above all
things ior bii upright penonal character and his purity bl motive. If be has
been led into error iu difficult problems
of State by a lack of logical perception,
he Ie by no meine singular in that respect. We wonld like to bear tbe name
ol the leader ol a Britiih Columbia Government aince tbii province had a provincial legislature who did not make
erron, and very icrioui error! too.
The foregoing extract from an interesting and ably-written article in one of
tbe greatest review! ii very appropiiale
at a time when the acta ol the premier
are to be made the eubject ol a royal
commission. Tho commission, we predict, Wlll find that Mr. Dummnir ie au
boneit man and that tlie charge!
brougbt by Mr. Curtii are groundless.
The extreme rarity ol'havlng an honest
man occupying the piaition hell by
Hon. Mr. Dunimuir inakeB it well-nigh
impossible lor tbe people of British Columbia (including Mr. Smith Curtis! to
understand him and hie straightforward
and ii likely lo be, peifeclly guiltless—
the premier has wrought in the mtnee
for his living and knows by bard experience what it is to earn hia bread by
the aweat ot his brow. It cornea very
poorly from the members of n lily-
handed profession to sneer at any man
who has toiled, md won by bia work
the rlght.to that respect which ia accord-
eJ everywhere to the dignity of labor.
But tbe result of Ihe inveitlgiti. n
will over.helm Mr. Smith Curtii with '
shame and confusion and will probably
bavo tbe result of making blm more
cautious bb to how,and regarding whom,!
he (lings around bia reckleit and ebame- j
fill aspersions and mean insinuations
THE   (Hills  (HAIUIIS.
Mr. Smith Curtis until recently held
a very high place iu Ibe opinion oi thote
people of British Columbia wboie good
opinion ii worth having; but he leemi
to have toflered something more than a
lea-change and has been distinguishing
himself lately by exhibition! of temper
and bad taste which have done much
to deatroy the confidence in him which
many people held. Hii latest attack on
the premier, and its accompanying tug'
geitiouiare nothing ihort of disgusting.
Mr. Smith Cnrtii now enjoys tho unenviable distinction ol being the lint
man in or out of the Legislature who hai
dared to impugn tbe boneity ol Hon.
Jamil Dunimuir. Mr. Curtii haa made
a naity, indeed an abominable insinuation in hinting—be did not dare to make
a direct and lormal charge—in alleging
even in tbat oblique manner lhat tbe
premier bad uied bii official position to
make advantageous dieposal by sale of
the E. A N, Railway.
Tbe inveitigation which we under
•tend ia to be held, will ihow tbe faliily
of Mr. Curtis'a contention, but we might
lay that it comu with very ill grace
from Mr. Smith Curtii, whole own
record in the Bimilkameen il far from
ipotleli to dire to make reckless charge!
of thli character.
And it doei not lie ln the mouth of
Mr. Smith Curtis, a lawyer, to eneer at
Hon, Jamei Dummnir, who bai had experience! ol which Mr. Smith Curtii ii,

My brother Tom tins expected from
the city, and I waa sitting lu the summer house waiting for liiiu. A man approached whom I recognized ns oue of
the attendants at tho Insane asylum a
few miles away.
"Have yoii seen anything of a young
man nbout hero who doesn't belong to
..he placeV" he nsked.
"No. What does he look like?"
"Handsome; black hnlr nnd eyes
with n glitter In them. lie escaped last
"1 haven't seen him, and I don't want
"If be comes, wlll you please telephone me?"
"No. I'll hide in the attic."
The keeper had scarcely gone when I
saw a man lu the distance coining up
tho rood. Great heavens! Could it be
the Insane man? I stood my ground
bravely to see If ho answered tho description till he crime within a discriminating distance. Ho was walking rapidly and cnrrlcd n suit case. To my
horror he walked straight to the gate
and entered. I peered with nil my
strength of vision at his hair. It was
black as night. I looked nt his eyes.
They, too, were black nnd scintillated
like pin wheels on tho Fourth of July.
"I beg pardon," ho said, raising his
hut "Is this Old Oaks?"
"No," I gasped. I lied. I would have
lied to an angel from heaven.
"Singular," he Bald, looking about
him. "I surely can't havo mistaken tho
place. I followed tho mala road—the
only rood In fnct-and tho gateway la
of stone, a rouud hull ou each column."
"You will Ond Old Oaks a nillo down
the road."
He looked about him, every moment
more bewildered.
"Are there two such gateways?" he
i asked presently.
"A dozen."
■My heart wns beating wildly. My
-strained imagination showed me only
a madman who would murder mo If I
did not succeed in turning him nwny.
"Theso are tho asylum grounds," I
•cried. "Go nwny at once! They nro
looking for you. Tho keeper wns here
this morning. Ho has been gono only
nn hour. He told mo If you earner to
telephone blm, but I won't I hope
you will get nwny."
By this time I hnd become hysterical
nnd begun to laugh and cry by turns.
Tbo young, mini looked ns badly fright-
cited ns f. Ho cast a quick gtiinco
nbout blm, ns if for some one to take
me in chnrgo.
His action reassured me. Hail I
mado a mistake? I looked again at his
hair, tbls time through eyes uiitcrri-
fled. It was auburn. I remarked Ids
eyos. They wero hluo anil, Instead o(
BClntlDntlng, were very mild.' 'Menu-
while the mnn wiis studying me. Gradually ho emtio to look upon me ns sane,
after all, for ho snld;
"I am Arthur Andrews. I wns to
como to Old Oaks for over Sunday
with my friend Tom Wlnslow. I hnvo
evidently got Into the wrong place."
Ob, my stars, I have mistaken Tom's
friend for a lunatic! I would rather
suffer any torture than confess my error. I must get rid ot him before ho
discovers who I nm.
"Old Oaks Is the next place to ours,"
I sold. "Doubtless you wlll easily find
it If you keep right on down tho road."
"The gateway?"
"Just like ours—u ball on each post"
"Are the columns brownstono or
granite? lours, I see, ore granite,"
"Theirs aro granlto ton."
"Squnreor round?"
tfn this I mado no reply. Somehow
I didn't llko his tone. Besides, there
was no necessity In being so minute.
"Thanks," he said.. "I wlll doubtless
dud tho place. I am sorry to have disturbed yon."
Ho departed. I arose, went to tho
houso ond shut myself up In my room.
In tho afternoon I beard Tom talking
with some one ou tbe piazza. I looked
throngh tbe blinds and saw tbt—tho
I rang for tbe maid and when sho
came told ber to tell my brother that 1
had ono of my sick headaches and
would not be well till Monday—after
tbe train had gone.
Tom came to me nnd found me with
n wet cloth on my brow.
"Awful sorry, Luey; have brought
Arthur Andrews up purposely to meet
"Oh, go away, Tom! You don't know
how I suffer."
Tbe next Saturday Tom brought "tho
lunatic," as I called htm, for another
Sunday. Before I met cither of them I
overheard n conversation which Indicated tbey bad explained my action to
their own satisfaction. I went down
stair, and walked out on tbe piazza
as cool ns an Iced encumber.
"My friend, Arthur Andrews," snld
Tom, "of whom you have often heard
me speak."
"Think I have had the pleasure of
meeting you before," said tbe gnest
"When!" I asked, with well feigned
"A week ago today."
"You must be mistaken. Last Saturday I was confined to my room with a
sick headache."
Arthur Andrews made frequent visits
to Old Oaks, and we took many n stroll
through tbe grounds. I always dreaded
to pass the gateway, for Arthur would
Invariably ask mo about that counterpart, which stood at tho eatrance of
that other CJJd Oaks a short distance
below. I met theso sallies with a dignified silence, hoping that In time bo
would become tired of them. When be
cboie tbe ihndow of this gateway as a
plan to propose marriage, I rejected
him. He afterward selected another
ainot, and I accepted him.
' Wind and Temper.
There Is a closer connection between
wind and temper than at first sight op-
penrs. A coldish wind has a hrnclng effect nud on the whole Is beneficial. In
, countries where hot winds occur perl-
odlcally, ou the other hand, these nre
regarded as a nuisance, If not n curse.
Every ono utmost gets cross, weary and
dono up and has a headache dally.
In Egypt the season when crimes are
commonest ls when tho hot khuinseen
blows. Nearly always during a severe
sirocco tho Arabs in Algeria were restless, If they did not attempt au actual
rising. The solano, which now and
then rushes ncross tho Mediterranean
In Aery blnsts from Africa, upsets every ono In Spnln nud ls the worst wind
lu that country.
I Aud even In tho "Pearl of tho An-'
tllles" tho fierce hot wlud Is such a pest
, thht It Is recorded of a family llvlug In
{ Havana that tbey made it a rule In the
household to preserve absolute silonco
until the wind disappeared. It was tho
only plan they could think ot to avoid
family quarrels. -1

Thore Is a romantic stoiy about Lord
Kelvin's second mnrrlnge. In tlie early seventies he, then Sir William Thomson, was ln West Indian waters, on
board his schooner yacht, tho Lnllu
Rookh. As a recreation he took up tho
question of simplifying tlie method of
signals at sea. He had been talking
of it at the dinner table of a friend In
Madeira, and the only apprehension
that seemed able to grasp It was that
of his host's daughter, a lady he greatly but silently admired.
"I quite understand It, Sir William,"
she said.
"Are you sure?" be questioned, bait
doubtfully. "If I sent you a signal
from my yacht, do you think you could
rend lt and could answer me?"
"Well, I would try," she responded.
"I believe I should succeed In making
It out."
. The signal was sent, aud she did succeed In milking It out and In transmitting tho reply. Tho question was,
"Will you marry me?" nnd the answer
Was, "Yes."

i Webster's Income.
i   Tho legal profession of tho present
day will bo surprised to learn that Mr.
Webster, tho greatest American lawyer of his time, made but $15,000 a
year by his practice.   But the fees of
counsel between 1810 and 1850 wero
not what they havo beeii since,
i    In ISIS I ncconipanled a client to
Mr. Webster's office In Boston nnd nsked him to name a retaining fee ln an
' Important patent case.    Ho sold' ho
, thought a couple of hundred dollars
1 would do.   When the case was tried,
his fee wns only $1,000.   On another
occasion I paid liiiu a retaining fee of
$2,000 for tho proprietors of the Goodyear India rubber patent,
|   Ills fee for nrgulng the great equity
i cause of Goodyear versus Day In tho
' circuit court of the United States for
tho district of Now Jersey, by which
ho established tho validity of tho Good-
year patent, was $5,000.   This was In
tho spring of 1S52, nud was the lait
case ho over argued.
A llomelr Greeting-.
' According to Alnslce's Magazine,
wheu the governor of Newfoundland,
Sir Henry McCallum, K. 0. M. 0„ went
ashore at a small harbor of tho cast
coast he was met at tho landing place
by a grizzled  old  flsbcrman,   wbo
. sought to make the stranger welcome,
' whocvor he might be.
1 "Be you couiin' ashore, sir?" be asked.
j   "Yes," said the governor.
' "Be you here about tho lie (seal oil)?"
the fisherman pursued.
j   "No," said the governor.
"Bo yon ono o' 'Sam' Lewis' men
from Red bay, sir, como about tho
i timber?"
' "I am the governor of Newfoundland," Sir Henry announced, with
some show of dignity.
"Bo you, now?" Bald the fisherman,
with a friendly offer of bis hand.
"Well, 'tis a mighty good Job—If you
can hold It. An' I hopes you will.
Would you like a cup o' tea, sir?"
Tho question was onco put to General Wheeler:
"General, what was the most foolhardy llilug you ever saw on tbo field
j of bottlo?"
I   "I didn't see It on Iho field of bnttle,"
■ replied Oeneral Wheeler. "I sow It one

"Naino this child," said tbo clergyman.
"Superfluous," replied young Mrs,
Verdigris, the mother of tho cherub.
"My dour .nudum," snld the preacher
in n whisper, "Hint will never do. I

"My husband's brother."
"Is he a married man?"
"No, sir.  He's an old bachelor."

"I've no objection, sir, but I llko tbe

Costs In India.
Tho barbers of India rank with th.
washerwomen. The sou of a barber
must he a barber all his life, and his
wll'i.' must be a barber's daughter. The
Hindoo shaver travels about lu search
of customers, and the bni-bcrlng Is doue
lu the street. There lire no stools, both
barber and customer squatting on their
heels while tho operation Is performed.
The Hindoo barbel' is a manicure and
o chiropodist as well, and his pay Is
wretchedly small. They often net as
surgeons, aud they make a specialty of
piercing the cars of young girls for earrings, while barbers' wives are almost
always hairdressers.
Like Sltuollntf (.basts.
The Impression wheu hunting paddy-
melons, a species of kangaroo found In
Australia, Is of shooting nt ghosts,
what with the dim, mysterious light of
the "bush" and the straugc appearance
and swift movement ot the game. Pad-
dyincloiis, like all the kangaroo tribe,
are useless for food, except so far as
their tails are coacorncd, which, being
largely of glutinous texture, furnish
material for capital soup, very like ox-
tall, but with a peculiar and agreeable
gamy flavor,
"Our church fair was a splendid sue-
cess," sold young Mrs. Torklns.
"Did you sell lots of things?"
"Yes." .,
"Anything useful?"
"Yes, Indeed! Everything was ever
bo useful. I can't think of n single ur.
tide that couldn't be saved up ond donated to be sold nt the next fair."
"A tot ot -air."
The Inhabitants of the little town
ef Somcrsby, In England, where Tennyson was born, nre frank ln giving
tbeir opinion of their distinguished fellow townsman. One old woman thus
related ber Impressions of tbe poet to a
" '11 was a very quoiet man. 'E seemed as If 'e was 'alf asleep, with 'Is oyes

poke at ye, lolko I' fun, wi' Ms stick.
'E 'ad Buck a lot of 'air an' a long |
beard, an'," sinking her voice confidentially, " 'o never looked very clean;
no, 'e didn't."
And this somewhat startling testimony was promptly confirmed by ber bus-
band, wbo added:
"If you'd met Mm gooln' along this
duity roond, you'd 'a' takkeu Mm for a
tramp gooln' to Brlgg for n night's
It Reminded Hint,
One sharp November day, says the
Philadelphia Record, a boy entered a
car, leaving tbe door open, much to tbo
discomfort of an old gentleman who
■nt next As the wind chilled bis marrow bis temper rose. Leaning across
his seat aud taking tbe kid by bis ear,
be snld: "Were you brought up In a
barn?  Why don't you shut the door?"
The boy suld nothtug, but closed tin)
door, coming hack to his seat lu tears.
This sight moved the old man to relenting pity. "There, there," he snld, "little man; I didn't really mean yon were
brought up lu u ham."
"That's Ju 't,.," retorted the kid. "I
was brougbt up In a barn, and every
time I see a Jackass It makes me think
of it"     	
An Interesting' Coin.
An Interesting coin has Just been sold
In Germany. It la ono of the few coins
In the history of the world which can
bo accused of having a humorous side
to it In 1070 the Danes descended on
tbe port of Hamburg, but their attack
on tbo famous House town proved nii-
lucccssful. The inhabitants of the
town struck a mcdul to commemorate
the occasion. The legend on the coin
was as follows: "The king of Denmark
has becu to Hamburg. If then wouldst
know what be achieved, look on the
othcr side." It Is needless to add that
"tbe other side" Is a blank.
Ills Man Was Appointed.
