At a public meeting held in Nanaimo
Tueiday evening one of the speakers wae
The Leader's estimable friend, the liev.
W, W, Baer. Ho made serious charges
against the E. & N. Railway Oo. Ae is
well known to everybody iu this district
Mr. Baer dearly loves a j iko, and i-nn
make a gocd une on occasion. There
fore, it ie a source ot exquisite pleaiur
to the Leader to be able to turn tbe
joke on Rev. Mr. Boer.
A few mornings ego, Rev. Mr. Baer
told the meeting, he wae travelling to
Victoria, and when the train stopped at
Ladyemith he got out to admire the
icenery and moralize over tho ead fate
which had consigned him to reiidence
in Nanalmo inatead oi in this lovely and
salubrious epot. Walking meditatively
along tbe line oi can, he came to olo
next tbe engine which looked like a
freight car, and on examination proved
to be one. The keen, iquillno eye ol
the astute clergyman next caught sight
ol a label on the Bide of the car, and the
ipectacle made bii hair run cold and
hie Hood to eland on end lite tbe quills
upon tbe iretfu! porpentine, or bristles
on a brand new paint brush.
The label bore the awful legend
"High Eiploiivei, handle with care;
liable to go off any old minute; kindly
■tend from under."
Rendered speechless by tho eight, unable to enquire ol the conductor, station
agent, or other railway officials if Ihe
car really contained the political election material thus thundered In the
index, tbe reverend gentleman retired
to the rearmost edge of the rearmost
seat in the rearmost car of the train.
There he bung on by hie eyebrows and
the skin of Ms chattering teeth all the
way to Victoria, quivering with mortal
terror, offering up prayers at every 1-.lt,
aud thinking it was kingdom come every
time the train .n.d round a curve or
tooted iti whittle.
So tbe reverend gentleman told that
meeting in Nanalmo. His laat condition
when be tottered ashore at Victoria wae
infinitely woree than hia fint it Ladvimith. And all the way down he wn
dumb belore the man who could have
told him, the conductor, tbat the label
bid been lift on, overlooked, by trainmen, that the car was filled with tubes
for tbe machinery of tbe tug Lome, and
that the reverend and exceedingly credo-
loui passenger waa acquiring grey hair
and premature heart trouble over
highly non-explisive material.
But the great heart of that Nanaimo
meeting throbbed with virtuous indignation when they thought of the awful
peril Ihe rsverend speaker had gone
throngh iu order to eecuio a rattling
good, sensational story fur their entertainment, He icored the E. & N.
Railway most unmercifully, the local
papere laid, for their heinous careless-
nees with the live! ot tbeir passengers
In running a car ul cold iron tubes down
to Victo.la along with the passenger
Tbe Herald iwnltnwed the story, tins,
tall, class and all and also waxed exceeding wii.th at the scandalous conduct of this railway company in thus
treating their reverend passenger to a
pipe (tube) dream. The Herald came
out Thunday morning witb a rip snorting editorial ot tbe regular whirlwind,
Arizona type in which the Eiiix N. Railway Company ia kilt entirely for Ita
tublar oirelenneii. The editorial ll as
full of luti ii Mr, Bser'i narrative to

Never nnder any circumstance! ll ex-
ploilve lent on pinenger traim; only
on certain dayi ll it lent by irelgbt and,
then the moit elaborate care la taken to
pack the car with lawduii and other
materials to reduce the iffeoti of motion
lo a minimum. Ammunition tor the
Royal Navy, black powder and other ex
ploelvei lor merchanti along the line,
are handled wiih tbe utmost eno so
thit Ihe dinger oi incident ii leiseued
ai much ai possible. In ihott. on no
railway in America It thli clan ol
Irelgbt hindled with greater cue than
on the E. A N. Railway.

Trick by Which liisiiranca Companies Were Cheated.
Last winter nil Canada waa thrilled
witb horror at (he story of- the awful
death ol Colonel Bond, of Montreal, son
of Areh bishop Bond, the Anglican Bieli<
op of Quebec. The unfortunate gentle-
tnan was burned to death in his splendid
maneion not far from Montreal, and
only hie calcined bonee were found in
the ruins. These sad relics were doly
buried with all the honors that sorrow'
ing friends could offer.
Tho Leader has been piivileged by
Mr. Conway, of the Ladysmith Custom
House, to copy portion of a letter just
received from hie eon, Mr. E. J, Con'
way, who ia' studying in Montreal. It
foreshadows the big etory which will be
along next week in the Montreal papers,
and Ib worth perusal, Mr. Conway
"There ia a lot of talk here about the
clever swindle that took place eome
time ago and has just been found out.
Colonel Bond, son of Archbishop Bond
of this city, owned a fine country house
near Montreal, whither he went one
night laet winter. During the night the
house took lire and was burned to the
ground. Colonel Bond's bones were
found amongst the ruins a few days
afterward. Bath Bond and the houn
were heavily inEured, and aa a matter
of course, the money went to his wife.
There was a grand funeral, and that wai
the end ot tbe incident,
"A few daye ago a man who had been
Bond's partner committed suicide, and
papers, etc., found on his person go to
show that Bond ia now in Mexico, and
hia wife is on the way to join him,
How ie that for romance? I was
reading the epitaph on Colonel Bond'i
tomb yesterday. Alas! You can never
tell the contents of a sausage by its
Different Dramatic Critics Puzzle
Ihe Leader.
When a representative ol The Leader
waa in Ninaimo last Wedneiday he
sought some information regarding the
performance by a local company of am*
ateuri of tbe celebrated comedy, "A
.crap ol Taper," in the Opera Home .en
Tuesday evening. He got it, al follow!.
Oue gentleman who ii deeply tnteieited
in the eucceeB of ths little company, and
who took part with it iu the performance
"Athough I lay it myself it wai a
beautiful performance. Every member
of tha company did splendidly, and all
went well, ltdeeemda better home.
In ipite ot the fact lhat we ran a little
behind financially the play was an
ai-listic iticcess."
When walking down Commercial
street after hearing the foregoing interesting and satisfactory account of the affair, tlie Leader man almost collided
with another gentleman who waa alio
very much Entereitsd in that performance. He wn walking along with hii
head bowed in deep thought, and hii
brow corrugated ae II wrestling in flpir-
it with tome phllmophicil problem,
'Say, were you at that thow last
night! No. Well you're a lucky man,
Why? Well, of all the tottenest, bum-
meet, etlly exhibitions you ever law
that wae the champion. It wai a froit
[irom curtain to curtain, and ttitli a
wonder the audience did not itorm
the 1-Utform end try to lynch lome
ol those stills. I think any gang ot
barn itormere Is quite lafe to ihow here
here after that horror."
Iu great distress ol mind the Leider
mm went hit way with the itrong id-
jectivel ol the adverse critic ringing in
hii ears, and determined to wilt lor tbe
Free Piets, that peerless and Incomparable dramatic critic, wbieh takes precedence as inch even of the Vancouver
papere, which formerly held the record
lor gaucherie in that line. Iiereii how
the Free Preti enmi up the situation,
[ties gem ol neutral, nnn-commltta
j judgment; laying nothing and mean-
ing nothing, like a Victoria Timei edit
"The play proved a difficult on. to

severely for what ehould possibly hsve
been attributed to tlie fault of the playwright. Mostof those taking psit in

Again hu Imperial Parliament been
thwarted in iti benevolent dealgn ol in-
trodncing amongtt the minen ol tbe
United Kingdom tbe benefit! of tbe
sight hear lew, enjoyed by tbe minen
ol Vancouver Island lor yean past.
The Tory majority have given one moie
instance oi their hatred and contempt
tor tbe worklngmen, by dcleating tbii
thil important measure. The London
Timet damned the bill ln the phrase:
"It ii a trade union bill," and laid tbat
ths solitary argument lor tbe bill wai a
"piece oi blatant cant."
Ths Minors' Eight Hour Bill has had
a parliamentary history oi teventeen
years. Outside Northumberland and
Durham it enjoyi the lupport ol a
largely preponderant body ol opinion
among the minen.
It ii not rigarded by Liberal colliery
ownera si hostile to themselves. In
(set ths bill wai introduced by Mr.
•Taeoby, a Derbyihire coal-owner, and
supported by Mr, Markuam, a Nottinghamshire coal-owne, both ol whole
eollleriei would be effected, and
both oi whom ire Liberals. Tory op
potitlsu wis on the ground oi pity lor
ths oosl owuore. Labor opposition Irom
Northumberland and Durham wai on
the basis tbst the passage ol tbii bill
might interfere with their arrangements.
Both theie conntlei enjoy the eight
honn dsy,
Colonel Pilklngton, Comervati ve mem
berfjrthe Newton division oi Linca
■hire, ssld in the Home that the "miners
had s vory good time"! and a London
Tory newipiper »dded to thli that the
•'minen made a goinea a day, worked
hili the year, and made holiday the
Sthwh.ll; while aome who only made
l.v.n shillings a day look only three
nipnthi holiday,"
The ipeaker ud writer are evidently
ignorant ol the fact tbit thoie English
miners havi to work lying on their
back! in (lamp and contracted space!,
their semty clothing dripping with the
water from the roof and the iweat from
Ihe-r bodiei, tbeir eyes and lung!
Choked with duit, tbut out fiom ibe
light of Heaven and exposed to the risk
ot fatal accidents. But that is the real
Tory.way of diking about labor. Yet
lsboringmen will actually vj'.e for Con-
urvativei .Ud lupport a lyetem of politic! which hii kept tbe yoke on their
necki (or centuriei.
The Leader heartily compliments its
venerable contemporary, Nanaimo Free; SBnatOf TempleiM Will   llttrOClll09
Preii on the completion of Its twenty-
eighth year, and hopes that It will endure
ai long ai Nanalmo has a mme on the
map. Tbe Free Preii ii a remaikablo
paper; it haa braved more aud probably
laverer etorms oi adversity than any
other piper In the province. It survived
became it wai ths flttleit, and became
it wai managed by a ihrewd and masterful man thoroughly familiar with every detail of hie business, Tbe Leader,
not ono year old, wishes tbe Free Press
nearly thirty, a lorg and prosperous
caresr ol usefulness.
Moduty il not conspicuous by i !b presence in tbe Boer requests ior peace.
They seem to be under tbe misapprehension that tbey hive corns out Bt the
big end ol the horo, iillimalim writing has ipoiled their style.
Informed observers ol the labor question in tbii province, eepecially on ite political Bide, do not hesitate to declare that
we are within measurable distance at
last ol that unanimity of action which is
certain to exercise a most profound effect upon the personnel of parliaments.
True, at the Kamloops convention
there ure warring elements which it
will be next to impossible to reconcile; yet, one clear fact is observable—
tbe workiegmen are beginning to recognize their great power ae a voting body,
We shall not ba surprised if the result
ol the convention now in tbe session be
felt very markedly at tho uext general
election to be held in this province. If
that result be tbe coming to the polls of
the labor vote prepared to cast tbe ballot unanimously, great and far-reaching
will be the effects.
Year by year labor has been growing
more and more intelligent; more enterprising Making allarger grasp ol its enormous possibilities, until at this time it is
ai absurd ai itii gratuitously insolent to
■peak of or regaid the workingman Bl
one of inferior education or mental capacity. That epoch is passing away rapidly. Let anyone listen to the speeches
otsomeol ths workingmen'e leaden
and judge for himself if these men ire
not entitled to respect.
We earnestly hope that Labor will always nse Its giant power at the polls
and in the legislatures ol tho land with
wisdom, moderation and conscientious
care lor the rights of others.

few who take to "public, careers" can
sufcly be left out of tlio discussion.
They aro exceptional cases nnd do
not affect the main point nt issue. It
is In her duties ns friendi hostess, wifo
and mother Hint woman usually finds
the lnrger part of her existence, nnd if
her attractiveness nnd usefulness in
the discharge of these duties are impaired by ber devotion to purely Intellectual pursuits most men feel nml

It is asserted thnt mniiy college .\ o-
men nre found to Inch that cliiu'in of
manner and those graces of* everyday
life which men desire nnd demand. A
woman may ho lenrnoil, hut if she enn-
not tall: small talk, which Is the largest part of talk. If she cannot manage

skill In the smnll things of ordinary
existence, but ls continually tending
the higher life, lt Is n snd but Indisputable fact that her men friends will,
to use their own low expression, "pass
her up." Tlicy do not want Hint kind
of woman.

How to tastefully dispose of a recess

good u.itured over a sandwich and a cup
of tea. It is "entertaining" to hand lemonade to a culler now and then. It Is odd
how such tilings nl'e remembered. A
matinee ticket does not cost a fortune,
or when you meet a friend up town how
hospitable you can be hy simply Inviting
that friend into whore you cun rest, get
an iee and smell flowers—all for a trifle.
Be ashamed to receive forever and
give nothing. And don't Imagine far a
moment that your selfishness is not noticed, says the Philadelphia Press.
How much meanness and laziness hide
behind the "Oh, I am boarding, poor me!
1 can do nothing." Indeed! It is ever so
much easier and cheaper for you than for
those who keep house. You can ask a
friend to your hotel. The dinner will be
nl most a dollar aud a heir, and you nave
neither trouble nor responsibility, whllo
your guest will enjoy the change just as
you do "this good homo cooking" wben
somebody spends $5 to get up B'meal ei-

Another tiling. Dou't be offended when
you nre left out of smalt affairs. In a
busy plnce most women in society know
several hundred people, nnd possibly like
a hundred very much. It Is a great puzzle sometimes to know how to choose
twenty out of tbat hundred. Even an In-
liniiilc opposite neighbor can't expect to
be nslied every time.
Of course If you never entertain at all
you should be doubly tolerant. Aud
never ask Invitations for strangers unless they arc visiting you or the circumstances nre exceptional. Do something
for them yourself, nnd don't use your
friends to nninso your acquaintances.
These friends perhaps prefer their own.
Does this sound sharp?
