Victoria, B. 0., Feb. 28.—Exhausted,
no donbt, by the exertion! and excitement! ol Monday afternoon the Legislature decided to take a real from Tuesday lut until next Monday. The
belligerent opposition are still very
much "worked up" over the prize fight
on tbe floor of the home, and the air is
thick with explanation! and objurgations. Richard McBride is generally
blamed for precipitating the fracas. It
ii conceded that unleei he ibowi a little
more statesmanship than he has done
io far thil session, hii colleagues of the
opposition will hive greit reason to
ngret their ruh choice oi him •■ s
J, H. Hswthornthwsite believes tbst
the Ooniervitlve element bsve now s
chance to cut In snd shsre in tbe ipoili,
il they will only unite snd itiy io. But
thst teem! to be tbe one thing the Con-
| servativei are incspsble of doing; besides,
they hive no leider; not a man of tbem
Who ihowi my ability beyond the somewhat humble qualification! pollened by
the rank and file of the party.
It ia feared by thinking people that
tbia leiiion is going to be barren oi
.ny useful legislation, unlets tbe discordant faction! in tbe opposition can be
| better managed. Tlie farce of having an
inexperienced boy for leader, when a
man ol Hon. Joseph Martin's talenti
snd long experience ii in the home li
even now apparent. McBride will at*
lUtedly wreck bii party.
I Great curlotlty ii telt st to Mr. Bod-
well'i opponent Ior the Victoris nit.
Alter the bad reception he met witb it

il felt thit i very weak man could beat

Ai ihowing tho bippy.go-lucky sod

hard-work oi biinging the ihip from
New York round tbe Horn; have waited

bnt instead of itsying the few diyi
necessary to reach tbe American port of
Honolulu, where they would be psid off
In foil, they hsve quit ship hen, thereby forfeiting every cent of tbeir hard-

No American ship can pay off io a foreign port. The Sewsll will probably be

II the criticiimi now being levelled st
the Provincial Government were at all
warranted by the Iscti, the government
would certainly stand in a very unenviable light. If the critics ol the government were to be luccenlul in their attempt to persuade the people thst un-
conttltutlonsl procedure it being
followed by the government, there li
little un in denying that the government's tenure ol office wonld be exceed-
Ingiy short.
But, fortunately for the good ol this
province, the people ol British Oolumbis
know their newipspen too well to
accept any ot their statements in halts,
And they siso know their profmlonsl
psliiicism altogether too well to pises
the ilighteit nuance upon snytblng
that they may ssy. Consequently, the
people ot the province hsvs lesrnsd the
habit, a most unlnl one, oi weighing
both ildei cl the cue, snd deliberating
long baton reaching a diciiion. Thil il
one nana why the government ii in
power now. The charges sgsiait them
hsve not bun provsd, thsnlors th.
people do not believe tbem.
It is a long time linos the agitation
against thst govsrnmsnt began amongit
th. mon irreiponiible and recklnt
mwipspen, snd the lury with whleh
the article! wan Imbued might hsvs led
the Intelligent stranger to imsglnethst
the province wu on the brink cl nvo-
lution. The fiery ipeechei ol certain
polltlolani, too, might have sroused
eome alum had the ipeecblfleri not
been w will known.
In thi ceiielen bsrklng at snd icold
Ingot Hon. Jossph Msrtln by thois
n.wipapin and politicians, than ii
aemetking exqulittily ledloroui. They
acknowledge him to be the one man ol
whom they Stand ln fsar. Thsy hav.
actually brought themielvet to sdmit
thst he hu both lidu ol th. legislature
at hii mirey. Whan thins wbo uy
thst Mr. Martin Is dictating to the government, or Il controlling the government'! policy ean show proof ol lt
psrhspi thsy trill mset with some
.uncus in gutting the public to believe
their unrtiom.
Down in the Argentine Republio sn
sbout fifteen hundnd Welih termers,
who lelt their nstivs Isnd to try their
fortune in South America. Not until
they got out to that Ill-governed and
generally ill-conditioned country did
they discover their error. Like so msny
other worthy people who hsve gene
there to bitter their lot, they have found
little to please them.
Tbey want to quit South America, its
torrid climate and undesirable form ol
government snd come once more under
the Britiih flag. They have put them-
iilvei in communication with the Canadian government, and negotittloni are
now in progress. It is hard to believe,
however, that the Canadian government
actually demurs at bringing thoie families here. Surely the government can
scarcely realise whet a magnificent 'investment it wonld be to fetch Into thil
country Alteon hundred ol perhaps the
finest nee ander the Britiih flag.
The Welih farmer i| a man to be
Bought liter moit earnestly by any
country; be il a itnrdy, industrious,
highly intelligent, pioui and law-abiding
cltiten. It il s thounnd pitiel thst
thoie good people waited their time
travelling swsy to thst ontlsndiih
country; but it will bs a lucky day for
Canada il our government can be
brought, to lee the importance of
ensbiing thoie iplendid settlers to
retrieve their unfortunate mlilake. It
would pay Canada handsomely to delriy
sll cost ol bringing them here.
From sll qusrten hsve come upon the
high prieit of imperisliim, the new
Isaiah cl the Lord's chosen people,
Rudysrd Kipling, itormi ol abuse and
protest in sniwer to bii poem "' The
Iilinden." Some ol thil dispraise il
Inntic; evidently tbe unpruned out
pouring! ol the ihocked Jingo; much ol
It, however, il cslm, judicial criticiim,
which ii infinitely bsider to besr thin
the shouting sort.
No plies ol literary work in this
generation bsi ciused io mncb talk snd
writing. It ii now laic to apeak iligbt-
Ingly ol Kipling snd hii work in
prennce ol msny who were two yesn
ego inline upon the mbject, end who
would hsvs done unto tbe offeror of
disparaging rsmsrks about tbeir new
deity, even si the creatnrei of Cyril ol
Alexandria did unto the troublesome
Hypstis. For ipesking his mind iu s
wsy that hu not suited the lute ol hi!
public, Mr. Kipling hu lost the
sympathy ol a greater pert ol thst fickle
body. But the clutter of the etreet snd
ths exchsngs sn of iittis or no vslue in
trying to strive at s just judgment ol
thi pises of work which hu pieced
Kipling in a new light belore the world,
We muit turn to tbe judgei whon dicta
sn worthy ol scceptance.
In the "Nineteenth Century" for
February, Mr, Herbert Paul, a literary
critic of quite exceptionsl sbility, mikei
sn ixhsuitivs exsminstion oi Kipling's
work and arrive, at tbe conclusion thst
eccentricity hu spoiled much ol it,
" Eccentricity," isyi Mr. Paul, "1. tbe
flnt raluge cf the mentally cxbiuited."
Thin hi goei on to ibow tbit Mr. Kipling wrote hlmiell out e long time ego,
snd, of courie, had to reioit to high
■pice to mike hii wsru nil. It il not
thi plethora ol imiginstion but ths
wont ol it thit drivel suthon to inch
(reiki u ioms which Kipling hu perpetrated. He chugei Mr. Kipling with
delighting ln depicting ugly tbingijnit
beciuie they srs ugly, and suspects tbat
Mr. Kipling bsi s good desl in hlmol
Leech's schoolboy, who " only wilhid
life mother knew how wicked be wu,"
Mr. Paul object! to the "bus groteique"
of such veriei u " Oelli," lo Barrack
Room Ballads, which he says are full of
eccentricity. The criticism il assuredly
said; very little ol sympathy Ihsre with
the mbject, but no doubt Irom a literary
standpoint it II warranted snd will bl
salutary. It lithe philosopher Cotton,
we think, who hu a remark iu bii worki
upon eccentricity and iti dinners:
" Beware ol eccentricity; it hai ruined
many thousands, snd msy ruin you."
ProfiBior Hsrry Thurston Feck, editor
ol the Amerlcsn Bookman, lakes just
thi oppoiite view Irom thst ol Mr. Paul.
He heboid! in the wrsthlul Kipling the
wsrning genim ef the Britiih people, to
whom tbey ihould give heed, He
praises Kipling's "blinder." u ws
think somewhat immoderately, especially when we remember tbst sll Mr.
Kipling's work heretofore hu betnu
poiion to the Prohnor. "Kipling,"
tayi the Profeilor, " dares to uy whit
Engllihmen sll over the earth an
Then the inimitable Dooliy haa his
eay, and It is not flattering, but very
funny. The criticiim appear! in a new
volume ol "Dooleylimi" Jut published
by Mr, Dunne.
Tbe editor ol the Monthly Review lor
February devotu the leading article to
an examination ol "The I.lmderi."
Alter exposing lome ol Mr, Kipling1! in.
consistencies, which an neither few nor
small, he appliei tbe lath to ihe
Islanders" who need it moil, in tbii
caustic wiy:
" We remember certain etoriei ol the
population of mining districts much
given to cock fighting, whippet racing,
and other "sports," clamouring like
one man lor war, and refusing like one
man to offer tbemselvei whon the time
ef need came. We think ol certain
great belli where suburban idlott
githored lately to applaud a miniature
iorm ol sn Inferior gsme. We think ol
certain' men abont town,' rich, strong
snd unemployid, who have ipent then
two yean past reading the newspaper!
and are itill" men about town." And
we remember thst a nrioui, hirdwotk

■ Women plod too much at their tasks

that women are by far more conscientious
and turn out more work In a given time.

which are those that certainly do tho
best work, arc very easily Influenced by
their surroundings, and It makes all the

So often one hears a business woman
say that she is too tired to go to the theater or to rend when, as a matter of fact,
once the actual effort of getting there
rtraa accomplished she would find lt a real

get her away from her littlo home worries and arouse ber interest In the lives
of those who seem to'have bo little in

we elbow our way to those centers of attraction, the bargain counters, and grow
fajrly hysterical in our efforts to possess
tbe objects that ore marked down to one-
half the cost and which In nine cases ont

examine them calmly and critically. But
this Is not saying tbat bargains aro not to

I We can "perceive" light without the
smallest aid from tbe retina. If the
optic nerve la sufficiently excited to
reach tbe sensorlum and create a disturbance at that center of the brain
where the optic nerve terminates, we
■ball then aee light and sparks. If,
moreover, the optic nerve Is cut or mutilated la any way, we should see a
brllllait flash of light, though without
any sensation of pain. And so lt is
with the other nerves. The auditory
nerve has only to be excited, no' necessarily by sound, so as to reach its
center, the brain, and we shall hear a
sound. How many ghosts might not
