For eome time back Victoria TimeB
baa been publishing the portraits of
the members of the local legislature, ac<
compLnled with succinct sketches of the
lives of the various representative.?. This
enterprising piece of journalism haa undoubtedly proved of a very gte;.t ecrvice
to the general public. Tbe Times must
also be praised for its excellent esries of
portraits and life-sketches of tbe ministers of the Laurier cabinet. The latest
of.the provincial portraits is a very fine
one of our genial and most popular
member for North Nanaimo, Mr. W. W.
B. Mclnues. The likeness is to the life,
whilst the following good-natured pen
picture of the talented young representative will be enjoyed by all wbo know
him and wbo may not bare seen the
j Times of that date:
It Ib inevitable that a gentleman with
tbe name of William Wallace Bruce Mc-
Innea should be both a Scotchman and
a fighter.   Mr. Mrlnnes is a son of ex-
Governor Thomas Ii. Mclnnes, of British Columbia, and won hia spurs in the
Dominion general election of 1306, being
then one of the youngest members ol
that body, and one of the first quartette
of Liberal representatives to go to Ottawa to represent this province,   He was
born at Dresden, Ont., in 1871, and wbb
educated at Toronto University and at
Osgoode Hall.   He took the degree of
B, A, from the former place and was ad-
milted to the British  Columbia bar in
1893.   His maiden speech In the Canadian Commons, when he    moved tbe
address, In reply to the speech from the
1 Throne, attracted wido attention to him,
and I Is career then seemed to. be one of
[ great promise.   However, be afterwards
resigned hie seat and was elected in 1000
to the local House as an Independent
but now follows  Mr, Martin.   He was
married in 1804 to Dorothea, youngest
daughter of Usury Young, of this city.
Mr. Mclnnes it, a born politician, a
vigorous and wonderfully fluent speaker
with a magnificent voice, whicli serves
him well wheu on the stump.   Ho is a
very hard hitter, but his uniform good
nature robs his heaviest attacks of the
suggestion of vindictiveness.  Personally
he ia a favoiite among the members.
important  Business  Transacted
Monday Night,
At the regular weekly meeting of the
executive of the Ladysmith Board of
Trade, Monday night, the committee
appointed to wait on tlie Government
at Victoria reported what they had

Kiddie was glad to learn from them that

Mr. Christie, tbat this board hereby

cirefully considered by tbe Tyee Copper

into a smiling paradise by the wisdom
and nil-devotion ol iti governor!, waa

A  LOST   EirjPIIti:.
With vivid power, and tbe inlorming
touoh ol the man who knowi whereof be

Hugh Clifford, C. M. 0., telle, in the
courie ol an abtorblugly inteieiting
paper in the March Blackwood's Mag-
■line on"th. romance ol • Scot! family,"
ol how the Britiih Empire lost tbe magnificent Islands oUava and Sumatra,
with inndry other ol the Spice Islands.
Long ago we read the itory ol
the cession to the Dutch ol

wrath over the Ion ol what wonld have

bnt not until we read tbe romance ol

month'! Miga did we know why tbii
extr»ordin»ry cession wu mide. Tbe
itory il wonderfully like tbe ficti connected with the ion of Oregon, Washington and the Coast Islands to the
Britiih flag, but while the North American ion wu canied by iheir incapacity, that of th. Javanese empire wai
due to the criminal negligence ol a Government official in the Foreign Office.

century, Sir Stamford Bifflei and a

For ten yean Sir Stamford ruled tbe

The following isvere criticism of tbe
Ltbor member for Naniimo li given ae
lt wu received in tbii office from a Victoria correspondent who hu been making a itudy ol tbe local legislator, lince
the opening of the session, and who
promiiu similar atudiei ol other member! from time to time. We publiib tbe
letter unexporgated:
Editor Leader—From a Nanaimo
common-sense standpoint, Mr. J. H.
Hawthornthwaite come! under the
category of "neither uielnl nor orna
mental."   Hii peculiar, erratic, incon
siitentand ildlculoii! behaviour It re. a
the impression tbat hi! li not a well-
balanced mind. Instead of living up lo
his profeeiioui of being an Independent
Lobar repreaentalive and giving an unbiased support to any and all good
measures, no matter by whom Introduced, I find him on all occasioni arrayed
against the present government.
From Mr, Hawlbornthwaite'a standpoint, nothing good can emanate Irom
tho Dnunnulr Government. If ytu
question him as lo bii opinion of wbi t
kind of government we might expei t
nnder tho leadership ol Richard Mc-
Biide, you would be certain to evoke
tbe UBUal reply "no good." In lact it
looki as if Mr, Hawthornthwaite hid
oome to lb. amiable conclusion tbat
nothing in the preient legislature, gcv-
ernment or opposition parly leader! or
private membcra, were any earthly account, with two notable exception!, vie,
Mr. James Henry Hawthornthwaite and
Mr. Smith Curtii.
Hii blind, slavish aud inbieivlent
following ol the latter named gentleman hai made him lillculons in the
public eye. Mr. Uawthorutbwaite'i
position in the legislature li in enviable
one. He il tl.e only member in the
House elected as the direet representative ol labor. He represents a coniliu-
encj—Nanaimo City, second in importance to no other in tbe province.
He wai elected as an independent,
uutrimmeled by pirty affiliation!. The
only initriictiom he had from his constituent! wu to nccompliih tbe greatest
good lor the Labor came. The only
semblance ol approach to partylim in
hia election wae bii own voluntary statement, whon be received bit nomination,
"that he prelerred Ior certain reason! to
lit on tbe Dunimuir government tide of
the House."
Hai he lullilled his promises in thil
respect? Can tbe best intereit oi Labor
be served hy being at perpetual and
childish warfare with every one else?
I have atated that hia position wai an
enviable one, but Mr. Hawthornthwaite
haa let the golden opportunity piss him
by. Instead of being honored and respected he ii laughed at. Instead of being consulted on queitioni of state, he li
quietly Ignored. Inatead of being a
bsneflt to the cause ol Labor he ii only
a itumblin. block and a hindrance.
I conien to a feeling ol regret to have
to write tbii about a man of whom I hnd
"great expectation!." I thought that
tbe man who bad the courage of bii
conviction! Itrong enough to . xpoie ihe
coriupt machine politics of his own
parly at controlled by Ralph Smith and
Dr. McKechnie would be couragioua
enough to pick out a couree for himself

-Ineoh Flnlclier nnd his good wife
Mary had lived together Iho lives of
farmers for twenty years or more and
bad never had an hour's misunderstanding. They hnd no children, hut
their company wils nil sulficli-nt for
each other, and nt tlie age of forty-live
they wero in tho best of lionllh nnd
without regrets. Then tlio serpent
crept In. He wns Iho agent of n life
Insurance company, nnd ho ant down
ln the kltul.cn where Mrs. Fletcher
wns malting pumpkin pies nnd talked
her to n standstill. What ho wanted
wns to secure mutual insurance, it policy by which tlio surviving husband
or wifo would in'olit in tho sum of
$5,000. The farmer's wife had heard
of such things, hut was opposed lo
them, and tho agent hnd to talk for
two long hours bcforo ho could secure
licr promise to "lalli to pn about II."
That night sho did talk, though without nny heart in It und was much relieved when tho husband turned to
her and said:
"Mary, It would bo llko flyin' In tlio
face of the Lord, and I wouldn't think
of such n thing."
no had to think, however. The agent
enmo back again and ngnln, and nt
length his persistency received Us rc-
wnrd. After much doubt nnd hesitation n policy wns duly taken out and
filed away in tlie bottom drawer of tho
burenu, and tho serpent find Inflicted
Its sting. Thnt afternoon ns the bus-
blind followed Hie plow In tho Held ho
found himself wondering whether ho
or his wifo would die llrst nnd whether
it would bo good policy for him to
build n now barn out of Unit insurance
money In enso ho was Iho survivor.
And the wire, ns sho sat peeling potatoes for supper and opening the oven
door now nnd then to look at tho linking bread, fount! herself wondering
whnt she should do with tho t'ltrtti nnd
nil Hint money 111 case Jacob met his
death. Two or three days later a windmill agent culled, and ns ho Incidentally heard of tho mutual Insurance ho
laughed nnd snld:
"May bo all right In your ease, but I
should look at It as a temptation to
my wifo lo got rid of me. Uiisbnnds
have been poisoned for less than $5,-
Ho was spunking In levity, but ho
sowed a seed. On flint same day tho
■wife of n neighbor dropped in for a
gossip, nnd of course sho was told
nbout tho Insurance policy. It struck
her at first ns n good thing, but Iwo
minutes Inter she held up hot' lunula
nnd exclaimed:
"Sfnry Fletcher, do you know whnt
you havo done? You havo prepared
your own grave!"
"La, but how you talk I"
"Yes, yon hnve. Tliero Isn't n husband on the face of the enrlh who
wouldn't throw his wifo down the eel-
Inr stairs and break her neck for $*>,•
000. You won't bo alive to see Thanksgiving!"
Hero was nnother seed, and that
night for tho first time since their marriage tbo farmer eouplo Wt suspicion
nnd distrust As thoy sat together the
husband-looked tho wife over and do-
nnd she even figured out who he would
tako for his second wife. They went
lo bed in nu unhappy frame ot mind,
and two or three times during tho
night each woke up and wondered
nbout hot lend being poured Into husbands' enrs nnd wives being smothered
with pillows as they slept.
Tho next four weeks were wretched,
ones. Not a menl did the husband sit
down to without wondering If the food
or drink had been sprinkled or mixed
Willi poison, nnd hardly nn hour pnssed
that the wife wns not on her guard
against somo sudden attack on her life.
One day tho milkhouse door blew to
on her and made her n prisoner, nnd
she littered such serenins of fear tbat
the tramp on the highway who heard
her did not dare go to her assistance
uutll be had summoned help. At another time sho .Hipped ou the cellar
stairs, and after much looking nbout
she discovered a peach stone nnd treasured It up ns legal proof of tho husband's planning. Love, trust and confidence hnd flown out of the window, i
and tho neighbors sagely shook their
heads nnd observed thnt thoy were
prepared to hoar of nn awful tragedy
any day.
One ulght the husband woke up with
a chill of four.   He had dreamed that j
be saw his wife standing over him '
with n butcher knlfo raised to strike.
Ho found her beside him nnd seemingly fast asleep, but he determined to
pass the rest of the night on tho hay
In tho bnrti.   He bad scarcely left tbe
house when the wife woke up.   She
hnd dreamed of being hacked to pieces
with the ax, and her husband's absence sccmctl to be proof that he had
gone out nfter the weapon.  She would j
bnlllo him by biding In tbe carriage '
shed until morning.   It therefore happened thnt while ho was skirting the
duck pond on the right to rench tho
barn she wns skirting It on the left to
reach tbo carrlnge house, and presently
they came together ln the darkness.
"Murderer!" she shouted as she
turned to flee.
"Murderess!" ho shouted ns be started back.
Then both went slipping down the
bank, clawing nnd clutching at ench
other, and brought up with a great
souse In tho pond. Wet and bedraggled, they climbed out on opposite
sides, nnd while she spent the remainder of the night shivering under tho
currant bushes and wondering If he
would kill her nt tho first blow or chop
her up by degrees be sat on the doorstep anil mndu up his wind to appeal
to the law without further delay.
Morning hnd come, and the pair had
Just confronted each other when a
neighbor who wns passing halted at
the gate to Bay: I
"Hello, Jake, have you beard tht
HOWS?" j
"No," was the reply. I
"Ain't you und Mary Insured In the
Sure Pay Llfo Insurance company?"
"Willi, she's busied blghcr'n a kite,
nnd your policy nln't wuth corncobs."
"Slio's busted for sure?" queried Jacob. "
"Suro's you live."
"And f nln't insured nnd Mary nln't
Insured, mid wo wouldn't get a durncd
cent If either died?" j
"Not u durncd red." j
"Then—tboii, come here, Mary, come
nnd kiss me," snld the husband as he
opened his lirins. I
" 'Pears lo mo like you might be glad .
of tho bust up," remarked the neigh-
"Durncd If I nln't!" replied Jacob,
with tears iu his eyes. j
"And so'm I!" sobbed the wife as she
threw her arms around bis neck.
