On Business Securely.
(Special correspondence of The Leader.)
Viotoria, B, 0., Feb. 26.-Oo the flnt
test of etrengtb in tho Legislature last
Thursday, a lest Bought by, Mr. McBride and hii followers, the government
easily demonstrated its ability to carry
en tbe affairs oi tbo couutry supported
by a good wurking majority. The ma*
jorlty on that occasion was two, but of
the four absentees, two are strong government supporters; so that tbe government Is perfectly life from the machinations ol Mesirs. McBride and Co.
But there ia no question tbat this
majority will bo considerably augmented
before the session haa laated a fortnight.
More than one of the Bo-called opposition
haa intimated that he is far from pleased
with tha manner in which the operations
against tho government are being carried
It is also evident lhat Mr. McBride,
the chosen leader ol the eection of the
member! who arrogate to tbemselvea the
title of" opposition," lias much to learn
in tbe art and myitiry ol leadership.
His extreme youth and want of experi-
ence, hii deficiency in organizing ability,
his want of a definite policy, are but
poorly counterbalanced by a certain
fatal facility of speech, and a bonhomie
which liaa won him, but it ia to le
doubted: will not bold ior him, friends.
The premier's rencontro with Mr,
Harry Lelmcken waa interesting, and
it .certainly did not strengthen Mr,
Helmcknn'i poiition. He lias proved
himself tb lie anything bnt a friend wbo
could be trusted to stand fait with hii
party, and consequently Mr. Helmcken
occupies a position in the house not unlike that filled by Mr. J. H. Hawthornthwaite.
The Labor member for Nanalmo and
Mr. Smith Curtis eeem to mako one
little party by themselves in the house;
no doubt.tbey will find it adviasble to
affiliate v, itli eome one of tbe numerous
bronche'! of Ihe opposition before the
session is much Older.
The speech from the throne hoe met
with general approval, and in tbe opinion
of most people, if tho promisee tbero
made are fulfilled the province is bound
to make satisiactory progress.
Important work ia expected to be
brouuht forward thia week, and lively
debates are looked for, especially as it is
learned that the faction led by Mr. McBride intend to adopt Farnell tactics,
and block and obstruct busiuesa ae much
Hon. Jotepb Martin snd the strong
party in the houie wbo accept hie leader-
ship, really hold Ihe balance of power,
and will assuredly make tbeir influence
felt very early,
Mr. Richard McBride, M.P.L., leader
of the ao-called oppoiition in tbe Legislature, oeems determined to prove the
truth of Ihe epithet applied to him on
Monday afternoon by Hou. Joseph
Martin, The member for Dewdney pre-
oipitated a conflict by usurping Hon.
Mr, Martin's chair, and Hon. Mr,
Martin ia hardly the kind of man to
itand impertinence ol that sort. He denounced Mr, MuBride aa a blackguardly
trickster lor taking hit teat. The
ipeaker had not taken hia chair then,
bnt after lie had done ao the row wai
reiumed, Mr. Smith Curtis committing
lavage assault upon Mr. Martin.
Messrs. Mclnnei, Giluiour aud other
members thiew themselves upon the infuriated member from Hoaslaud and by
main itreugtb pulled him off. The
ipectatorB ia the galleries Btood up and
howled lu their excitement. After tbe
riot bud been quelled Mcllride apologised
lor bi, disgraceful conduct, He con.
tinued to ait on Hon, Mr, Martin'a desk

Qtvr been arranged—McBride, Hon. Jos.

Miners' Union of Nanaimo Deals It
a Staggering Blow,
Nmalmo, B. C, Feb. 2d.—(Special)—
Last Saturday night a meeting of Nanaimo Miners' Union wai held, when tbe
yearly election of officers took plsce.
There was a very large attendance. Tbe
voting for the secretaryship resulted in
a terrible surprise for tbe Smith supporter!. Mr. John Fraaer, one of the
most popular young men in Nanaimo
received 70 votes, while Ralph Smith
just laved his bacon with 80, The remit
caused quite a leniatlon.
When it il remembered tbst Mr.
Fraser Ib a young man, that no ipecisl
efforts were made by his friendi to secure i meeting largely in hit intereiti,
but that on the other hand the Smith
faction worked hard sll tbe week to
pack that meeting, tbe remit ii moit
Again, two ol the tailors ol Tooley
itrest, Ralph Smith's blindest and most
unreasoning supported, Mr. W. Smith
and Mr. Neil McOniih, were "turned
down" mott ignominioutly. Mr. W,
Smith bai been treasurer of the nnlon
lor years and years, and hit defeat wai
even more of a surprise tbin the
practical deleat oi Ralph Smith. Mr.
W. Smith, who Ib a particular friend ol
Ralph's, waa defeated for three different
offices, bo he can be in no doubt li to
the opinion of tbat meeting on th*
Bubject of Smith. He was one ol the
anthon of the celebrated telegram 10
Ralph Smith st Ottswa: "Come home,
our honored chieftain, and we will elect
you," followed by the eignaturea of Ibe
three tailors of Tooley street.
It is hoped here by all who have the
beet intereiti'of Nanaimo at heart that
it will not be long belore tbe curie of
Smith rule will be lilted irom thil city.
The greatest delight was expressed
throughout the town on the result ol the
voting being annonnced.
Mines Opened and No Fire Found-
Good Prospects.
On Sunday a number ol men entered
No. 2 slope and went down as lar al the
water, which ii shout fifty feet from the
top of the slops. The fanl were started
and no evidence oi any fire wat found
anywhere. The woik ol pumping in the
water ceased on Sunday morning,
Entrance wai alio effected into No. 3,
and there alio the moat favorable condition! were found. On Monday evening six men were put to woik to clean
up and timber. There il a considerable
cave-in not lar from the entrance to the
slope; otherwise the mine ii in excellent
order. Mora men will be put to woik ei
the water recedei. Miny believe thst
owing to the very istiifaclory state ol
tbingi in the mine everything will be in
lull iwing again si it wsi before tbe dliaiter. by the end ol March.
The public srs wsrned not to place any
reliance in tho deliberately nutrnthful
reports of thli matter appearing in the
Nanaimo newspapers. The Leader'!
etntementi regarding tbe No. 2 flooding,
published in last lime, ire corroborated
in every detail by the officials at Extension.

Probably no man In tho country
knows more about the country lying

than Mr. Jones, and his judgment baa
been confirmed by Mr. Neill, who also
knows the country well,
Everything appears to point to the inevitable result that the eastern terminus
of that road must be at Ladyemith,
which seems destined to lo British Columbia's moat important shipping port.
The attention of the province ie now
centred on this town, and the advent ot
the Alberni railway here would probably lead to great industrial developments.

It. Outline Remain, an Unparalleled
Idea In Architecture.
The greatest of the architectural en*
terprlscs Michael Angelo wns culled upon to take up was tbe completing of
Bt. Peter's, nnd he devoted himself
through pure obedience to tbls tusk,
refusing all compensation, offering his
unpnld services lu tbat way both to
his master and to tho service of religion.
He bed to struggle against the opposing ideas of tho architects in charge
of the monument, who held by later
plans than those of tho first deviser,
and their enmity and misapprehension
of whnt was best aimed at a continual
thwarting of nil bis Intentions. Ho
managed, however, to bring back tho
building to its original plan, that of
his greatest enemy, Bramanto, upon
whom he has left this noble Judgment.
"It cannot bo denied," sold he, "that
Bramanto laid tbe first plan ot St. Peter's clear and simple, and all who
have departed from bis scheme have
departed from the truth."
We have not the great cathedral as
. Michael wished lt, nor can wo see ln
lt tho creation of his genius. But tho
ono thing thnt Mlcbael Angelo left to
his successors ln tho work is tho cupola, whoso outline remains ns an unparalleled idea, as important a landmark
ln architecture as his other records of
achievement In painting and sculpture.
It Is tho mark of Rome nnd tho expression of Bome's grandeur. -
The Pelican Smiled.
There is n sly old pelican in Central
park which has an almost human way
of noticing whnt goes on about him
without seeming to do so. Tho other
day two herons ln the snnic cngo with
him fought over a fish. One had mado
tho catch, but tho other had undertaken to wrest tbo morsel from its
rightful possessor.
They squabbled over It like two boys
who have hold of tho sumo baseball
bat The scufllo brought them Into tho
neighborhood of tho old pelican, who
stood, apparently nslccp, with his big
bill tucked away under a Wing. Then
tho heron dropped its fish, mid the buttle wont on.
No sooner bud lt been dropped than
the great bltl came out from underneath tho wing nud the fish went Into
tho pelican's pouch. Then tho bond disappeared again. Tbo pcllcau wns
plainly asleep.
Wben ono heron gnyo up tho fight
and flow away, tbo other looked about
for the prize. It was nowhero to ho
scon. Tho keeper of tho bird cages solemnly asserts that ho saw a twinkle
ln tho eye which tlio pcllcnn opeucd to
give a glance at tho retreating hcron.-
Pccnllnr lto.es,
Ono ot the wnrs of tho roses, tho
fiercest nnd deadliest of them all, was
fought on a field where, curiously
enough, a roso peculiar to tho spot
grows or used to grow. It is n rare
plant now, and the reason Is explained
by Mr. Lcndnian In his account of
[Yorkshire battles, After describing
the terrible battle et Towton on Palm
Sunday, 1401, ho says: "I cannot conclude this story ot Towton fluid without an allusion to tho littlo dwarf
bushes peculiar to tho 'Field of the
White Koso nnd the Bed.'
"They are said to have been plentiful at the commencement ot this century, but the visitors hnvo taken them
away In such numbers that tbey havo
become rare. Such vandalism Is simply shameful, for tho plants are said
to bo unique nnd unnblo to exist in any
other soli. The littlo roses aro white,
With a red spot on tho center of each
of their petals, and ns they grow old
tho under surface becomes a dull red
color."—-London News.
car. Animals.
No animals whatever are found ln
the dry parts ot caves. Dampness or
a certain degree of molsturo seems to
be essential to their oxlstoncc. Under
the stones one finds white, eyeless
worms, and ln the damp soil all around
about are to be discovered blind beetles
In littlo holes wldch thoy excavate nnd
bugs ot ths thousand leg sorb Theso
thousand leg bags, which In tho upper
world dsvour fragments of dead leaves
and other vegotablo debris, sustain llfo
in tho caverns by feeding upon decayed wood, fungous growth! and hats'
dung. Kneeling ln a beaten path ono
can see numbers ot them gathered
about hardened drips of tallow from
tourists- candles. There in plenty of
crickets also.
A Varnlahlna Tl».
When varnishing wood, the work
mult be douo ln a warm room nt a temperature of at least 75 degrees F. At a
lower temperature tho moisture In the
air will give a milky and cloudy appearance to the varnish. On the otbor
band, at the higher temperature the
moisture Is not precipitated until tbo
nlcohol of the vnrnish has sufficiently
evaporated to leave a thin smooth film
of shellac. The durability aud gloss nro
dependent on this.

now They Aro Cnnirht and Pressed
Into Bricks For Shinning;,
Grasshoppers are being put to a new
use out In Nebraska. The farmers
have killed Incredible numbers of them
by the help of a machine which Ib perhaps tho most effective ever devised
for tlie purpose. It Is called a "hop-
perdozer" and Is nothing more or less
than a large flat pan with a small
amount of kerosene contained ln a depression In the rear part of lt. The
cootrlvauce, being attached to a horse,
Is pushed along In front of the animal as the latter Is driven across the
fields. Pretty nearly every grasshopper encountered jumps upon the pan
and Is promptly suffocated by the kerosene.
This Ingenious instrument has been
ln use for a number of years in parts
of the west, hut hitherto lt has not occurred to tho farmers to make any
use of tho dead grasshoppers. Most
commonly they wcro burned, though
some more enterprising agriculturists
turned a portion of them to account
as poultry feed. They found that the
lu-iis liked thorn exceedingly, for lt is
a fact that a grasshopper Is to a hen
what a canvasback duck Is to human
epicure—the very choicest and most
esteemed of delicacies.
Ilence the idea which is now being
developed on a commercial scale. The
grasshoppers, after being killed by the
hoppct-dozor, nre left ln windrows ln
the fields, where they are soon dried.
When they have been exposed to the
sun for a sufficient time to reduce
them to a properly desiccated condition, they arc gathered up with rakes,
shoveled Into carts and conveyed to
a shed, where they nro put Into a
press somewhat resembling an ordinary cheese press aad converted into
solid bricks.
Tho bricks aro shipped In quantities
to poultry raisers, who find this new
kind of hen provender most satisfactory, and they nre anxious to get more
of it Apparently tt is a great en-
courngcr of egg production.
It Is not necessary to grind tbe bricks
before feeding the stuff to the chickens, but merely to break them into
pieces and soften with water.—Saturday I'lveulng Post.
The I'e-kin.
A Breeder of the Single Comb Variety- Slnaa Their Praises.
The single comb Brown Leghorns
have earned the right to be classed
among tbe best utility fowls since they
have attained sufficient size to make
them valuable as a market and table
fowl. Tbls quality, comblaed with
their great ability as layers and tbeir
beauty, places tbem ln the front rank
as favprltes of the farmer as well os
of the fancier. They have been considered a nonsittlng variety, but that Is
not a fact In an experience extending
over twenty years I have found them
to make, excellent sitters and mothers.
Pullets batched ln May or June or
even so late as July wlll begin laying
by November or December, and they
need not be affected by cold weather,
but should continue to lay throughout
the season. Tliose hatched In February or March will begin to lay ln tbe
early fall, aad when the change from
warm to cold weather takes place they
usually cease laying and perhaps molt.
Consequently the early hatched birds
are not as valuable for winter layers
as tbe May or June hatched chicks.
These two months seem to be tbe natural months for hatching, as the
weather Is suitable for incubating tho
eggs and raising tho chicks, and at
that time nature provides the vegetable and animal food that is necessary for the rapid growth of tbe birds.
T|ie usefulness of tho Brown Leghorn female as an egg producer extends through a period of three or
four yean without any apparent falling off, and some birds five or six
years of age continue to lay well. I
have a bird of that age In my yards at
present that will lay as well as the
younger birds, bnt nS'S rule three to
four years is their average length of
It Is claimed by some that pullets
which develop large combs ore better
layers than those with smaller ones.
My experience Is that the chick hatched earliest develops flnt, consequently
she lays sooner and naturally has a
larger comb, but so soon as development takes place in tbe one with tho
smaller comb sbo wlll lay equally well.
lt Ib also claimed tbat certain types of
females wlll lay better than other
types. I cannot see any difference In
the laying qualities of the stout, short
hen and the more rangy one. The condition of tho stock is the main factor,
becauso unless In prime condition you
certainly cannot get the best results
The single comb Brown Leghorns
have taken their place among the general utility fowls because they produco
more eggs of larger size than the Asiatics and most other breeds and becauso they begin laying sooner, do not
consume so much time in sitting, are
hardy, caally raised, do a lot ot hustling and conaequently can be raised
at much less expense. — William F.

Fattening Poultry- la D.lclam.
Consul lloosevclt of Brussels gives
this interesting account of fattening
poultry ln Belgium: In fattening for
market at about three months old,
coops of peculiar construction nccom-
modato twenty chickens, They are
twenty-four Inches high, twenty inches
wide, standing on four legs three feet
In height The bottom is made of lath
so that the droppings faU through, the
top an adjustable board to allow free
circulation of air, tho front lath two
to two nnd a half Inches apart and the
receptacle for food a triangular shaped
wooden box. The food consists of
ground buckwheat mixed with milk,
forming a paste not too liquid and fed
twice dally. At noon milk or milk and
water is given them, If any refuse
to tnko tbeir food, they are not forced
to cat, but nro removed and killed, as
they wlll grow thin and lose their market value. They aro usually fed four
or live weeks.
Don* Well With Turkey*.
The farmer wbo Is always decrying
turkeys and tho expense ot raising
them will bo forced to admit that the
turkeys havo withstood the drought
better than anything elseon the farm,
and the food they have eaten he wilt
not regard as so much waited. He
will And that tho largo drove cf turkeya his wife has to sell wlll materially
aid the family when everything else
Is so scarce. Turkeys may be lower
ou tho market than usual, but I
doubt It Tbe scarcity and conseqaaat
high prices ot other meats probably
will keep up tho price ot poultry even
If there Is a large supply. There Is
always tho Thanksgiving and Ohrlit-
nine demand, nnd add to this the num.
bers required to grace feasts of different kinds and you wlll And tho turkey,

Feeding Bran.
Bran Is excellent for poultry, snd one
point In favor of bran Is that it con.
tains a much larger proportion of lime
than any other cheap food derived
from grain, and, as the shells ot eggs
are composed of lime, It Is essential
tbat food rich In lime' be provided, lt
may be urged that the use of oyster
shell! will provide lime, but it wlll he
found that lt is the lime ln the food
that Is most serviceable because It Is
lu a form tbat can be better digested
and assimilated than carbonate of
Clover Is also rich In lime, and when
a mess of cut clover and bran Is given
the fowls they wlll need no oyster
sheUi or other mineral matter. Do not
forget that in- maimer, however, all
kinds of foods should be used with
judgment If the hens have a free
range, glvo no food at all ns long as
they are laying, but It they begin to
fall oft let bran be the leading Ingredient of the foods allowed. In winter
tbe bran and clover are even more es-
sentlsl, a. the fowls cannot then secure
green food on the raugc.-I'oultry
Feeding Ground Boa..
Mr. L. wants to know whether to
feed ground eut bone In the mash or
separately, bow often, how much to
100 hens, whether It can be fed to
growing chicks. These questions have
all been a.swered several times within a year, but then are always many
new subscriber! for whom Information
muit be repeated. Green cut bone can
be given either in the mash or separately, but I prefer to feed It separately and as a separate meal or a "bite-
between meals. Wben hens are getting It regularly, they may lately be
fed sll they will eat ot It The quantity wlll vary with the composition of
the ether food. The usual estimate Is
two ounces of bone per hen per week.
It Is best to give It two or three times
a week, Green bone, If cut One enough,
can be fed to growing chicks with profit They need meat food, and there Is
certainly none bottor.-Farni Poultry,

tlie scarcity of feed, it Is argued, will

Corn For Fowls.
D. A. Mount In Rural Now Yorker
says be thinks corn part ot tbe time
Is a good grain for fowls, even It they
do get a little fat on It He further
says: "An excellent toed for Light
Brabmas part of the time Is wheet In
the straw; they will hustle around to
get the grain snd lay right along.
Another breed I find takes on fat read-
lly Is the Plymouth Rock, while White
Wyandottes wlll keep In good condition
and shell out eggs with a feed ot lots
of com. The Leghorns snd Minorca.,
with unlimited range, could be fed almost wholly on corn and would do well
and ley nearly all the time."
