Q-WhoiflMr.B6dwelJ, K. C. ?
A—Mr. Bed well, K. 0., has been a
very sujceBBfiil corporation lawyer.
Q—Wbat is a corporation^ lawyer?
A—Generally epeakicg, one who ia
hired by monopolists to obtain public
resource! for lesa than their value.
Q-How Is this done?
A—A lawyer ol ths greatest Influence
In tho dominant party, tbat it is por<
sible to obtain, la hired. He uses hie
influence with his party, deludes tbe
mass of the people by catch phraaee,
forms political combinations and plots,
subaidlzss the prees, sends deputations
to parliament, etc., to obtain tbo prize,
popularity called graft, that the company deBires at tbe least possible cost
or conditions.
Q— [las Mr. Bod Ml, K, C, any political history by which we can interpret
hia position?
A-Mr. Jliidft-ell. K, C, originally
supported what was called the Laurier
Government, But when this government refused the demands of tho British Pacific Promoters, Mr. Bodwell, K.
C, changed his political allegiance.
When the Semlio Government were
considering tbe abrogation uf the V. V,
& K., charter, it ia publicly charged by
Mr. Martin that Mr. Bodwell sent a
threatening letter to influence the action
of the government. When Mr. Martin
became premier Mr, Bodwell urged, as
against Mr. Martin's policy, that tho
0. P. R., needed no competition to induce them to deal fairly by ns, that
their own large interests would lead
them to do bo. But tailing to coerce
Premier Dunsmuir Into handing over
public resources without adequate protection lo public Interests, Mr. Bodwell,
having In tbe meantime changed hie
employer, now tells iib tbe C. P. H., is
an octopus which seeks to enclose the
province in Us grasp and hold It at ite
mercy, that It mu&t be fought and that
we rauet create another ofi&pus to do
the fighting.
Q-But is not Mr. Bodwell a Liberal?
A—He claims to be nu'li, except upon
such occasions as he deems tbo application of Liberal principles to be inexpedient,

The "Pally Telegraph" lias received
from their correspondents ia the leading foreign capitals a number of telegrams reflecting the opinion current in
in those cities with respect to the foul
aspersions which have been cast upon
the conor of the British army and the
dignified and simple aseerlion of Lord
Roberta that they are "absolutely without foundation."
These messages tend fo show what
need never have been doubted (remarks
the''DjilyTelegraph'')—that such mon-
strotn stories have not received the
slightest credence anions; those who nre
acquainted with England and ber people, and especially among thnso who
know tl'" British olli.'er and private
soldier. I«a Ntw York and Washington
they are regarded as a slander not alone
npon England but upon the entire Anglo-Saxon race. Ia Home the Italian
military attaches who have shared the
cainpslgns of the British army In Egypt
and South Africa declare lhat such stor*
les are unthinkable, whits in Vienna the
Austrian Captain Von Ttiratnel, who
has recently returned from en tflloial
mission to South Aftica, has just publicly declared that tbe war hue been conducted In (be humenest mnnnerpossible
on the BritiBh side, and that tbe exrm
plsry conduct of Ihe troops deceives the
fullest n cognition.
Water Started Into the Mine on
Monday Morning,
After a thorough inspection of the
bulkhead which has been built in tbe
tunnel quarter of a mile from tbe en
trance to No- 2 elope, Extension, and
everything being found right, the water
from the swamp above the opening of
No, 2 elope was turned into the big
flume on Monday morning, and began
filling up the mine. It will be kept
running night and day till tbe mine is
Tbe stopping In the tunnel wae completed Sunday at noon, after which Mr,
J. Taggart, foreman of the work, examined it carefully. The stopping is
thirty feet wide at the outside radius,
and twelve feet high. It contains 34,-
400 feet of timber, will stand a pressure
of 130 pounds to the square Inch, or
3,369 tons.
The mines will contain, it is roughly
estimated, about fifty million gallons of
water, and with ordinary weather it
will take two mouths for this quantity
of water to run into the mine, and almost the same time for It to run out
through the pipe in tbe stopping In the
tunnel. j
By this calculation it will be tbe end,
of May at tbe soonest before No. 2 will
be wholly cleared of water, but work
will be Btarted In the upper levels long
before tbat, and gradually Increase as
tbo water falls.

Lett Sunday Nanaimo Herald published a itory to the effect that notices hid
been poated at all tbe pit heada in Extension notifving the men that only
Ladysmith men were to be employed
henceforth. As there is only one pit-
head ln the Extensions at present tbe
me of tbe word "all" seems to prove
tbat the article was intended to deceive
the general public, aa well as to work up
trouble amongst the men.
The Leader hss made tbe meet csrefnl
enquiries at Extension and can assure
tho public and ail interested that there
is not even a shadow of truth in the
statement made by the Herald. The
only notices polled at the tunnel and
No, 1 pithead were to the effect tbat, in
Ibe one case, no men would be hired
there, tbey mutt apply at the office; in
the other notifying the men regarding
eome technical alteration in tbe working

with the engagement of tbe men,

Nncceaa Its Lite.
No proverb it truer than " nothing
succeeds like success." For one mm
that li stimulatod to endeavor by re*
peated failures, a score are crushed by
them. When all is said, we have to
look to success, steady quiet success, as
th. greatest stimulant and the greatest
factor in success.
It it essential to a man who would be
successful that he abould have self-
teittem. This Is, we know, • quality
which ii apt to ba looked upon with
some degree ol auspicion. But tbat ia
becaose It Is too olten applied to those
who value themselves above thiir
merits. And yet ol the two errors, tbat
al underestimating one's capabilities is
th. more disastrous.
A man wbo would get on must be able
to bold hii head up, and in order to
bold bit head up he must have success.
II bo hai tailed again and again—from
no fault ol hit own, he m.y say, though
tbe cause il perhaps not difficult to

though he speak th. truth, when lacts

Bnt let euch a man luddenly ttep, by *

Truly success breeds success, and
yoar virtues or weakness*, are meaiored
by your success or failure—a rough-and-
ready method, but ordinarily the best
available, Lile becomes a new thing
whin you are going np in tbe world. It
la not Ignoble to desire to be * person of
some Importance. It has Its drawbacks,
but its legitimate advantages are greater.
What delight il there to be complied
with thit of going steadily up hill in
your professional or business career?
Tboogb, no doubt, with a free choice
you would not select it, there is more
fatolnallon In having an income ol a

The January issue ot the Pacific Lumbar Trade Journal contains mnoh information concerning the limber and
timber trad, of the Northwest that will
bs interesting reading, not only to those
directly engaged in that trade, but also
to the general public. Among other
articlee ie one tbe eobject of which 1.
some recent strength tests of tbe Northwest Douglas fir, recently made In
London for a British Columbia firm.
The strength shown by tho fir beams
seems almost incredible. Says tbe
"Builders are iamiliar with the fact
that Douglas Br is among the strongest
woods in th. world, bat figures inch aa
have been prepared for tbe British Columbia Mills, Timber and Trading Company, of Vancouver are of especial value
to those interested in the tubject. Thil
company eent five fir logs to the testing
and experimental works of David Kirk-
aldy and Son, ol London, England, to be
subjected to tb. severest bending and
thrusting tests, and lull data to be returned. Tho results show In detail tbat
fir is in every respect satisfactory to
those who have alwaye insisted tbat it
was one of tbe best varietiea of wood.
"The specimens given tho bending
teat were 12x15 and 16 inches in dimensions, cut to a length of 18>i feet, with
a distance of 12 leet between the support*, and the load applied at the center.
The mean total ttrees in pounds and deflection in inchei ar* ihown in lb* following table:
The weight* rote in regular gradations
from 10.000 lb*, witb a deflection 0' .065
inch np to 78,000 lbs, with a deflection
of 1.203. Only three pieces received Ih*
last named etrain.
'The ultimate weight borne by tho
pieces was 78,714 pounds or 35.1 tons,
which was equivalent upon the beam of
ponnds, or 41,6 tons. The timber,
were bout to a deflection of five inches .
ana removed'.
Those tested to ascertain tbe retitt-
ence to depression were 12x12 and 100
inches long, with the ends deed trn. in
a lath..
Th. weights began at 40,000 lbs. with
a depression of .027, and role steadily by
20,000 lbs. at a time to tbe enormons
weight of 500,000 lbs., these piecei being
subjected to this pressure and showing
only a depression of ,288, and ol 560,000
lbs. of .267.
The average ultimate .train of the
five piece, before they were crushed waa
531,656 poundt, or 8,680 pound! to tin

While Dr. McKechnie waa president
of the Independent Lsbor Party of Nanaimo, he became a party lo a 'Meal'
whereby he will make quarter of a million
dollars. Dr. McKechnie, tbe representative of white labir, actually opposed
tbe insertion of an anti-Chiuese clause
in the Pulp Bill, for the reason that he
waa afraid that the Dominion Govern
ment would dJBailow that bill if such 1
clause were placed in It.
This reiEoo and assertion Mr. Hawthornthwaite characterises as an"absurd
falsehood" mi I a "ailly yarn." Had he
known that the Djctor would make
quarter uf a million dollars out of Ibis
transaction, &e a reward for hia deliberate dmieptiuu uf the Labor party, Mr
Hawthornthwaite would have blocked

tbe aff.'ir as a 'Mlrty deal." There is

his perfidy and dishonor. Mr. Hawthornthwaite then calls attention to Dr,

Warwick of Ihe Knobi. by John Url
Lloyd,illustrated; W. J. GrtRO & Co,
Fearingthattbiawi.fi just another ol
those diileot lurrora wniaiilliave; delun-
ed the land of late; booka.iti which, the
unfortunate and unoffending-, English
language is sut'jiietcd^to tortured compared with which tbe fiendish erueHleu
of Torquemadi. uud Titelmann were
benefactions, I began the reading of
Warwick of tho Knobs iu no eager moud.
But this ia no mora brokcii-Englieh
Btory, where oue clo»n expree.iea hia
crude Imaglninica to auother clown, iu
archaic jtrgon. It is it story that deserved to be told, nnd ti::it, deceived to
bs read. I can h.mily fancy anyone
beginning thia tale of old Kentucky and
failing to finish it. There ia not ft great
amount of literary power dlrplnyed in
the management of the stoij; it i;
Hplced with eomo Americanisms that
to a taste nurtured ncrois tho Atlantic
do not please; I do not mean tho iacr,
picturesque expressions native to the
very airof frontier Amortcs, but down-
right solecismifiujli as "loa'ted," the
abomination that servM on this eido of
the ocean for the EnuIUh vuib "lent,"
Others there are which broadly betoken
that tbe bund which wrote Warwick uf
the Kt.ob-i was indigenous to the Aiuetl*
can soil.
This it tt story having for u buck
tzround ih 1 American civil war, and for
hero Warvcljir, a Baptist, tuluUter of ihe
old sell nt!, who interlard* h'B ordinary
discourse with extraordinary quotations
from tlie S-iripturee; and whr.su religion
blinds and deafen* htm to afl lm.uar,
aympathi*?. The Knob, are tho Binall
hills or kopjas which ornament String-
town County, in Kentucky, The story
turns upon the rigid religiosity of old
Warwick and the Inevitable claali between bUarliflnlul tiudeatid the play ol
human passions and emotion* in hie
•one, his only daughter, aud her betrayer, tbe rock hunter from tho North,
Trials as fierce us ever tested tho temper
of any man corou upon this etubb iru old
giant of the Kentucky wiltleruear?, but
to the last lie la uuheudit g.
ife loses two soup, one in tbo war,
the other shot by his own Bister; the
■daughter elopes with the scoundrel
Irom the Noitb, then relume to face Iter
lather's wrath. Joshua, ihe only remaining son goes North to kill bis stater's betrayer, is over* helmned with
the grandeur of lifts In the great cities,
accidentally meeta (he mother aud little
■liter of the man he haa come to thy
and bla courage oiz is out, of hia finger
«nds. He returns homo to tell bis
father that the last of the War wicks is n
coward. The old preacher spurns the
coward from his door, and the tragedy
winds np with the forlorn father uiiuiug
upon vengeance baalde bis luined
daughter and her helpless infant In ita
cradle. Many paessites have greal
•dramatic force aud Intensity, se for in-
■tance the scene between the judge and
the preacher; and lhat where Mary ro-

thli excellent tale In stock.
Some books are to be tasted, others to be
swallowed, and some few to be chewed ^
and digested—Bacon.
arkably few stories have been written
about that wonderfully interesting corner of Amerlim. While Bret Harte has
done much lo nt tract attention to that
uulo of tho continent, Mexico still
awaits im Sobtt or Dumas. Nevarthe-
leos excellent woik ia being done by
some clever writers, amnrgst whom the
iiutiiorees of "The Idol ol Bronze" may
b:»i'!;iB»tid. Tins ia u «tory of the rail
wav coming lo a remoto part of Mexico,
and the doings of the people of that se-
quoatercd vale. Around the loves of
Cosine, the peon, humbly born, bnt
highly endowed with manly graces end
apirit. and Carmen, the heireis of
'Halle!zinitr, the story pleasantly winds
itself toward the somewhat tragical
denouement; which haa just a suspicion
of melodrama, and a tiavour of "once
aboard tho luiifter and she is mine;
th»ugh -very decently done. Ooeme pops
in at tlie wedding of his distracted love,
Carmen, with eome hidalgo who has
wealth, but who Is not loved, Much in
the airy, nines trooper fashion of the
young Louliinvor,Coemu gallops .through
the crowd of wedding guests, sloops
from Ida fiery steed and lilts tbe not
unwilling tenorlta to his saddle bow;
"'IVre w.-is racing and chasing on
Cam.bin Lta,
But the lust bride of Nether by ne'er did
they Bee."
Tho two lake to tho mountain*, where
tho horse bus la ba abandoned. Ou they
wander across (he immratt and down
into the valley beyond, while the cab-
tilltiroH, vni-ioroe, und haoendades are
scouring ihe country in search. Tbe
two finally bring up against their fate,
aid Cosme justifies his lady's love for
him by dj ing a heroin death. Those
who ait down to this well-told talo will
not be disappointed.
Care Should Be Exercised In Select-
luff and Furnishing It.
Not every mother has tho means nor
the conveniences for fitting up a well
equipped nursery for the use of her little
ones, but there is no reason w'*y the
room In which the children must spend
the greater part of their time each day
should not be bright and dnlnty and attractive. The room set aside for tho children, where their toys are kept ami they
are allowed to play and romp and plan
their daily occupations, should ho so suggestive of latent possibilities ns to keep
the little minds and hands pleasantly occupied, even though tbe most inexpensive
furnishings must be used. To bo bright
and attractive doea not necessitate being
It is too often the case, however, tbat
the children's room is a decidedly doleful
place, and it is no wonder that the little
folks persist in straying from their own
particular donujiri, going upon littlo excursions to the (1 it.wing room, the library
or the kitchen, any one of which is far
plensanter than the quarters up stairs
that have been assigned to them.
Mothers argue: "Anything Is good
enough for the children when they are
young, tbey arc so destructive, you know.
After awhile I will fix up their quarters,
hut so long as they are small it doesn't
matter much what they have so long aa
tbey are comfortable."
Would that mother bo comfortable iu a
room where the outlook gives one only a
glimpse of back streets and brick waits?
Would she think it comfortable to catch
her toes daily in holey carpet of a hue so
dingy that it ia enough to drive even a
baby into a fit of artistic despair? Would
she be comfortable with no pictures on
the walls, which are covered only by a
solid wall paper the pattern of which is
unpleasantly suggestive of all sorts of
crawling things? To be warm and have
enough to eat is not all the comfort re-
j quired by a baby, though many mothers
appear to think so, judging from the
quarters of their little ones.
Babies are quick to notice beauty. A
bright carpet, some pictures representing
events In child life, n sunny room where
the furniture la whole and clean—In fact,
a bright and cheerful nursery—will leave
Its pleaaant Impression on the childish
mind long after the occupant boa passed
through its portals to do battle with the
great world lying beyond and will bo the
cornerstone of many pleasant memories,
whereas the prisonlike dens which pass
for nurseries will never bo thought of
save with feelings of dislike, for first Impressions even in small children are the
ones to last the longest, and the early
surroundings are bound to make their
mark on the mlnda that are at that time
in the moat receptive state.
Have tt Home of Yonr Own.
They are a wise young man and woman
who start out in their married life ia a
home of their own In some place where
tbey will have green grass about their
house even If It is only a few feet. It
makes no difference how humble or how
modest the house may be. The smallest
box of a house with a plot of green is a
temple of common sense compared to the
finest "flat" or "boarding house" in the
city. If there Is anything appropriate In
tbls life, it is that young people should
live somewhere where each day they can
see their own unfolding lives reflected in
the unfolding works of nature. There Is
no beginning In the home sense to a
young married life so true, so,wise, so
lasting and so satisfactory as that. No
life In a city Is comparable with that
which is lived in a. small house with
green things growing over and around it,
where God's pure sunshine bathes and
sweetens every side of the house during
the day and whe.e the surest llfegiving
odors tbat God gives to his children—the
odors of soil and growing things—are
blown Into the house white we sleep.—

The Kid Tbat Lout Its Life by Not
Following Ita Mother's Advice.
One day ns a Gout nnd her Kid were
grazing in the field the latter sniffed tbe
air nnd sagely observed:
"Mother, I havo a cttrloBity to know.
whether I smell wolf or crow."
"We'll call it wolf and not get any
nearer the forest," replied the mother.
A few minutes later the Kid stared
hard at some tracks In the soft soil and
"Really, now, I'd like to be sure whether these are tracks of a coon or a wolf."
"We'll presume that a wolf passed this
way and keep our eyes peeled," was the
It wasn't ten minutes before the Kid
looked fixedly at the forest and remarked:
"I certainly saw something moving
umong tho trees, and I'm dying to mow
whether it's a wolf or a woodchuek."
"If you'll paste it In your hat that it's
a wolf, it won't hurt no woodobuofc's
feelings," said the mother as she nipped
at another thistle.
The Kid thought the matter over awhile
and then concluded on a closer investigation and set out for the woods. The
mother heard her blent as the wolf
sprang out upon her, and nfter clearing
her throat of prickers and wiping the
moisture from her eyes she said to her
"Of course wo didn't know for sure,
bnt if that Kid bad only inferred tbat It
was a wolf she'd have escaped being

Glove Friction on Jewels,
"If you want your rings to last well,"
said a jeweler, "don't wear them under
gloves. But It you decide that gloves aro
a necessity, as probably you will, then
send your rings twice a year to a jeweler
to be overhauled," says Home Notes. The
reason for this warning la tbo constant
friction of the glove wears the tiny points

■Sit *» that tbe stones fall out unless they
are constantly looked after. You might
sot detect a loose stone, but a jeweler
would at once and thus might prevent
your losing a valuable gem.

The   Dutch   Lansnaae.
The Dutch language is of a good old
fashioned tongue. It Is not so difficult
that English speaking people cannot
without difficulty acquire it. In fact,
some folk say, tt is more like unto English than it is to German. The Boers of
South Africa use tbe Dutch language as
it was spoken 200 years ago. It Is a Hugo
that 1b bound to stay, though it shows
little powers as a wanderer.
A Clnb Sandwich.
Toast a slice of bread evenly and lightly and butter It. On one half put first a
thin slice of bacon which has been broiled till dry and tender, next a slice of tho
white meat of either turkey or chicken.
Over one half of this place a circle cut
from a ripe tomato and over the other
half a tender leaf of lettuce. Cover these
with a generous layer of mayonnaise and
complete thla delicious "whole meal"
sandwich with the remaining piece of
RoloHlnar the Cork.
The trick of extracting a cork from a
bottle without touching the cork le well
worth knowing. Fill an ordinary bottle
with water and cork It, not too tightly, so
that the end of the cork juat touches the
water. Then wrap a cloth tightly around
the end of the bottle and, taking It In the
right hand, hammer It smartly against
the wall or any other Immovable object
The water then acts as a solid body and
shoote the cork from the bottle.
