A Political Rumor.
Naniimo Free Preu takei tbe responsibility of announcing that Mr, William
Sloan will be a candidate Ior the vacancy in North Victoria earned by the
death of the late Speaker. Also that
Mr.'Sloan may enter the provincial
eabinetea Minister of Finance. The
Leader has been unable to Bee Mi.Sloan
to obtain hii viewi. Mr, Sloan wonld
certainly aland an excellent ehance in
North Victoria. He beat Ralph Smith
in the district in tbo last Dominion
•lection though he lost in the city, snd
be would certainly have beaten Smith
outright but for Wolley splitting the
vote. Mr. Sloan would certainly he I
molt acceptable addition to the executive of thil province ai a minister of
finance. He ie the kind of man the
people want to tee in the legislature.
All who nro interested in the weifan
of Ladyimith are cordially requested to
attend the meeting in Gould's Hell at
half-past seven thia evening. Al hu
been announced tbe object of the meeting is to form|» Hoard of Trade snd get

The citizens have realized tbat unlsn
Ihey take the bull by the home and do
aomethiug for themselves the place is
going to Buffer. Nanaimo has wakened
np to the fact tbat it haa got to klek or
go under In the scramble for valuable
conceesionB such aa the Alberni railway
terminus. Victoris haa been temporarily galvaniied into a diBtant semblance
of life, and Ior the first time in 'nventy
yeara ia betraying a deeire to make
eomethlng of ita magnificent natural advantage!.
But Ladyimith, io far, has ihown an
apathy and indifference to ita iplendid
chancea which is amazing to the itren-
ger. Nobody want! to aee Ladyemith
fall into tbe comatose condition dii-
plavcd by Victoria for more thin hell
a century. Hence tbe meeting tonight.
Theeupportof all the people ol the
town ie earnestly solicited.

Aitaliitij;   the Order*
The following pathetic lines were
written by an old British soldier on visit*
iug the grave of hia wife, alter a long
term of foreign service:
Thou'rt in tho kingdom, darling,  now,
with those whom Jmus blast,
Saying "Come ye heavy-laden, come.
and I will give you rest,"
In fancy now, my loving wife, e'en now
thy face I see,
Aud thy old husband's heart is down,
'lis deep down there with thie.
Oh thoi wert high and noble, lovo,
though one ol lowly birth;   -J
it nerds no sculptured monument, to tell
tko world thy worth.
Ths green gra?e grows npoi  tby grave
the daUT lifts its head.
And but a simple sraveatono marks  the
' spot where thou art laid.
I'm not alone, my darling wife, lam not
far Irom ihsc,
1 feel the spirit of thy love le keeping
watch o'er me;
I soon shall follow, for thou wart the essence of my life;
Hot tears are falling on thy gravo,  my
loved and loving wifo.
TUliI   LOVUti   DEAD.
We hold our sacred dead aloft,
We put tbem by like treasures old.
No more for them or hearth or   roof,
But narrow dwellings lone and cold,
The dear warm heart that fell asleep I
Wby shun them In onr secret thought,
Why ever at a distance keep,
Ab if some change was   in   them
They cease not from their constant lovr,
Tht-v are not strange and far away;
Their presences about ns move
Closer than presences of clay.
How it must grieve tbem when they
Heart close,   and dud   no welcome

Not the least interesting part ol Mr*
Harry Kumiss's "Confessions" is that
in whioh he explains how It was that
"Like Joka" failed, or at least did not
succeed, or at any rate ceased to appear.
It was too good for this world, like tbe
child of whom It was said "ere sin could
bight, or sorrow fade, death came with
friendly care." In this connection the
following extract will no doubt attract
attention t
O.eof ihe youngest and most snr«
oesslul newspaper proprietors once call
edmoa fool. 1 wrote and asked him
wby, We had an Interview, He said
frankly. "Yon are a fool, in ray opinion, for producing too good an article
for tbe money. Your staff le too good;
yonr printing Ie too good; your paper
!j too good. I am a success because I
know where to buy paper cheap, and
sell It for a profit. I have thirty publication!, but their names, their contents,
writing, or art I never think about, nor
doei the public either. We Ink boi
thing on the paper, and ssll It at io
much a pound profit,"
It wonld be interesting to know who
takes so slight an Interest In tbe tone
ud   contents of the publications he
owns—and the fact that he is young and
that he owns thirty publications narrows
the field   of  inquiry  considerably."—

The First "Strati" Sent la London
Conltl Find No Purchaser.
Italian violins havo not always held
the supremacy thoy now enjoy. It was
not indeed till the beginning nf the
nineteenth century that they ciiino into
vogue to any extent outside their native laud. Previously Jacob Stelner
(1021-83) was the fnvorlto maker, aud
his high model had been almost exclusively copied by his fellow Germans
nnd tlio different makers In Frniiccnnd
England. When tho elder Corvette,
who had been n merchant bcforo entering; tbo musical profesBlon, came to
London, ln 178S, lio brought with blm
somo Instruments by Stradivari. Ths
result of this endeavor to Introduce
Italian work into England nils one with
pathetic wondor. It is almost beyond
belief. As be could not get ns much as
iH ($25) for a violoncello he wns obliged
to send the Instrument back to Italy
for a bad speculation. Five pounds for
a "Strad," and not a single purchaser
to be found!
This Incident tn Itself furnishes sufficient testimony to the slavish following
of the great German maker and the
strong prejudice of tlio violinists of
that period In favor of the high model.
It Is indeed tbo players who arc most
to blame for tho slow adoption of tbo
flat model, for tho creator must malco
what is necessitated by the demand;
but tbe eighteenth century fiddlers, nt
any rnto In England, Franco nnd Germany, seem for tho most part to have
been content that their violins should
possess a small sweet tone, never realizing the lack of power and sonority,—:
