So little hai come out ol Ihe Tarte
episode tbat we begin to fear that a
cruel and crushing disappointment
awaits our Oonseivative friendi, who
tondly hoped this was the thin end nt
the wedge ol disintegration, tnd tbat
before long tbe Laurier ministry and all
ill works would go toppling down to
Disorganisation may prevail amongst
the British Columbia Liberals, bnt it is
nothing at ail to the want of cohesion
displayed by the Conservative party in
this province. It has been charged that
the lateat development oi the provincial
political situation ia only a deep-laid
plot to shelve party lines indefinitely.
We do not know anything about snch an
attempt having been made, but we are
certain that party lines in this province
cannot be shelved. It is bound to be
the issue of the day less than one year
hence, and then we shall see Bucli a telt
of strength at will once tnd for til show
how badly mistaken were the Conservatives in supposing themselves able to
cope with the splendid organization and
strength of tne Liberal party In British
Party lines mnst come. The Liberal
party il not shirking ths issue; the Conservatives are burking it deliberately;
thoy know that light ou sueli an issue
means prolonged disaster to them. They
bave not a leader who is acceptable to
the whole party, ai Hon. Joseph Martin
is to the whole Liberal party ol British
Columbia. Jealousy is spoiling tbe
party's chances ol, organisation. Dissatisfaction, distrust, and a lamentable
lack of funds help to keep tlieX'uueerva
live party iu thie province in a state ol
innocuous desuetude.
It is safer thus thin my otber wty,
ta Canada, to ill' sorrow and empty
pocket well knowe.

dav lately a well-known gentleman
walking along tbe sidewalk in Commercial street bad his attention drawn to a
totnnwhat bulky document lying on tht

Ining it with eate he found to hie chagrin that his own name waa high on the
list nl titles.
Tbere was a key, whloh accompanied
the document, and with its aid and a
deal of patience, bt found that he waa
reckoned by tbe signatories ol tht paper
to be i "deadbeat." He dived foi hit

abont tbe meaneit thing in creation.

' H.Uo, mah ragtime glrll
la the twinkling of an eye pandemonium reigned ln tbe tewing room
of St Agitha't mission. TWenty-two
•mill glrlt dropped fella, French
teams and buttonboln ln a wild rush
for tbt open window, and: their first
love-the itreet piano man,
Their, pretty teacher wai far too tender hearted to item the beglra. So
little mualc could como Into the Uvea
of then limb children. Wby deny
tbem tbit pleesure? So tbo quietly
gathered up tbe scattered pieces of un*
bleached muslin, nulling at the loftly
bummed tbe tlr which came clanging
end: clanking from tbe itreet be(ow.
"O*oe—Min Grace-come an' tee,
He ain't got no monkey. He-t got a
man-a real, live awcll tool"
The Italian dtoplayed bit imall,
(learning teeth, at ht gated up at tht
children, crowding upon the lire es*
cape. Tbe teaebera In then missions
—be'hid beard of them. They lived
on tbe avenue. They wore fun and
violets, and alwayi tbty gave their
pupils for tbt itreet musicians a nickel, perhape even a dime.   .
Grace Byrne slipped ten pennlet into
tbt handi ot aa many eager glrllei,
then tuned over their-wriggling, excited little figure, to catch a gllmpn
of tbe extra attraction. In the center
of a gaping circle wat a well built
fellow from ber own walk of llfe-a
carefully groomed chip, too, he wat,
dad In tht conventional frock coat,
gray trouiem allk hit tnd modish
tiovn. And bt wti dancing, actually
dancing to that frightful ragtime mualc. A feud guffaw run from the circle of glum denliens, ind Once leaned
farther out tba window, to tho discomfort of htnelf and uveral imnller
formi whcee ownert would not glvt
iwl'y even for "teacher."
"Hellol Hello!" acretmed tbe piano
In final triumph. The young:man
atopped; dancing, whipped bit pollthcd
hit from hll ihapely bud and deliberately hell It toward tbe gaping;
laughing crowd.
"Oh. teacher, give nt tome mote pen-
nlea-rQulcki See; be't goln' away, an'

But Orace bid Humbled back to her
table nud wai elttlng tbere now, witb
her White fan naif hidden In her ilen-
der hands.
The children, awed by. her tlience
and pallor, tattled quietly to their
very imill and contained a Jeweler's
box. Tbe othor held eleven photo
graphs, all of one young man at varl-
out agei and In diverse garments, a
bundle of notes and letter! and tome
faded floweri. She directed them with
care, then retolutely descended to the
dining room.
But ber appetite had taken flight.
Sbe toyed with her roup and tent tbe
flsh nwny unthtted, Beet t It mode
tht declared to be too heavy for tbla
season of tht year.
Hor father looked at ber keenly.
"You ought to give up that million
work, Grace, Can't yon find tome other fad? Tenement tlr doei not agree
with yoii.'!
"Talking about tenement!," broke In
the Irrepressible Tom, "we bid a good
one today on Fred Terket. Anothci
bit of beef, father."
Grace, turning dlny ted faint,
clutched frantically at her napkin.
Wat she to bear the itory of Fred'i
disgrace bcre, before the entlro funny! Wildly the thought of flight; then
taking a fresh grip on her napkin,
which by thit time resembled ■ mow-
ball, ibe determined to fict the ordeal.
"You tee," continued Tom, "Fred
made aome foollih bet tht other day
witb Gummings. I didn't bear whit
It waa all ohout, but anyway tbt

Grace gasped.
"I should toy to! Any fellow ought
to know better than to mix up with
Cummlnga. He't alwayi putting up a
game. But, having lost, Fred paid bit
bet like a man-went down tbii afternoon, with a lot of ut In tow to ate
tbat he played fair. And he did. by
Jove! Ho put up a jolly good cake
walk, and I guess that organ grinder
thought he'd struck Klondike. We fel-

wu when Fred got through, and a little chap marched right up to blm,
yelling, 'Say, mister, yer togt It out
uv tight, but yer itepe It bum, worry

- Everybody it tbe table laughed.
Grace wondered If tbit hysterical
treble waa really her own voice, Sbe
felt inch i ridiculous desire to cry In-
Mead. Flnully ibt unrolled ber nip-
kin and decided to try I bit of beef
after all.
Halt an hour later, when' Tom
daabed upstairs to bla room, hi Wit
met In the dim entry by bit titter.
Bhe laid ber band affectionately on bit
1 "Tom, dear, yon know tbat stickpin

Then, kisalng blm gently, tbt tllpped
back Into ber room, while Tom hurried on, muttering:
"Glrlt ire queer thlngi-a fellow's
