Yesterday morning Hon. VV. W. B.
Mulunes travelled donn to Victoria
stopping on" at LadyBmith long enough
tu grant'Ihe Leader a short interview
on the present political situation.
Hon, Mr. Mclnnes in reply to a question aB to the reported attitude of Hon.
Joseph Martin, said he was very sorry
indeed to injur that Hon, Mr. Martin
intended to oppose tbe Government,and
he was at a loss to know wby. He was
dubious about th3 report, and would
prefer to say nothing on the matter until
lie had eeen Hon. .Mr. Martin personally.
As to the present Government's ability to carry on the business of the country -ftith a substantial majority be bad
not the slightest doubt. They would
meet the house with a safe majority,
nnd they would endeavor to carry out
the policy already outlined by the Premier, which wuuld be one ot tbe energetic developeineut of the country's resources,
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes expects to return

THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK.
It tbere be any truth ln the statement
—and let us remember with care that it
comas Irom Vancouver—lhat Hon. Joseph Martin has signified liot, only bis
unqualified disapproval of tbe composition oi tbe present provincial government, but bis determination to oppose
it to the best of his ability, the matter
is a good deal more serious tban tho casual observer might think.
We adhere to the opinion that, rightly
or wrongly, Hon. Joseph Martin is the
ohlef political power in (bis province today. Those who attempt to console
themselves with the cheap assurance ol
Hon, Mr. Martin's bitter personal one-
mitt that he is no longer to bo reckoned
with, are living in a fool's paradise.
We htvt learned with keen regret
that Hon. Mr. Martin is suffering from
a painful bodily complaint, which is
causing his friends eome anxiety, and
which le bound to circumscribe his energies somewhat, but we are perfectly
confident that tills will not prevent bim
Irom taking a most -active part in tbe
political events which, to all appearance,
are soon to make memorable rbistory in
this province.
Our belief tbat the opposition of Hon.
Mr. Martin la to, be dreaded is baseil
upon wcll-autlient icntcil facts. Wc submit, first, that the party which has
pledged its allegiance to.Hon. Mr, Martin as leader Is today moro powerful
than at any time since tbat honourable
gentleman eame to this province. Second, tbat it Ib being continually aug
mented, and last, but not least,' tbat
Hon. Mr. Martin is backed solidly b
the bulk oi the Liberal party in tbe
province.
These are not things to be dismissed
with a wave ol tht hand. We are ae
confident ts we can be of anything tbat
ii the remarks attributed to Hon, Mr,
Martin in tbe despatches irom Vancouver art correct, the approaching session
will tee perhaps the'fiercest'struggle for
supremacy ever waged in tliot legislative chamber.
While we hive expressed our satisfaction with tbt Government aB now completed, we have not the slightest doubt
thtt it is about] to enter npon a strenuous fight for its] very existence—always
providing that Hon. Mr. Martin lias
been quoted correctly, (or he is a man
who*'never breaks ]his wurd,"and who
la absolutely uncompromising toward
thoie wbomtbe'bas-good reason to consider his loss.
Vorwaerte, the leading German Socialist paper, declares that a Becrot de-
cree has been issued by tbe UuBsiau
minister of war to commanders o( troops,
calling attention to the urgent necessity
lor combating the Socialist propaganda
within tbe army. Here is a slgniacant
fact, that might bo taken in conjunction
with the foregoing—the Continental
conscripted armicB are among the most
effective agencies in the spread of Socialism—and SociallEm that inclines toward
Anarchism and Nihilism.
A neat letterhead or billhead with
yonr name, address and business,- is a
good advertisement.
Judge Harrison will adjudicate upon
the charge which has been brought
ngniust lliu Rev. W. W. Baer, pastor oi
Wallace Street Methodist Ohurch, Nan*
aimo, by Justus W lllams, a carpenter,
residing somewhere down tbe E. A N,
line, lo the effect that the reverend
gentleman regularly commits the heinous crime of smoking tobacco (nnder tht
specific orders oi his medial advisers.)
This practice ol Mr. User's has re-
ceived the sanction ol all the church
courts before which it has been invest!-
gated. They.no sooner heard the evidence than they dismissed the charge ol
Williams and gave Rev. Mr. Batr full
permission to smoke.
Rev. Mr. Baer believes that Williams
is uot so much worried about the seeming infraction of the cbnrch law as he it
lor reasons licst known to himself, to
render Rev, Mr. Baer's stay in the ministry of the Methodiat church impossible.
For years this man Williams has pursued the pastor, bnt not satisfied with
tbe repeated rebuffs given to him by the
courts of his own church he has insisted
in dragging the matter still further,
courts.
The writer has gone very thoroughly
into nil the evidence and correspondence
in Ibe matter, and is in a position to tty
that Williams is by no means alone in
this pursuit of Rev, Mr. Baer.
The outcome of the cast will bt
watched with deep iulerest from one
end of Canada to the other. It it probably Unique in the annals of tbe Methodist, church, and even oi tbe Oivll
Courts. p

Here ie a bit of Siamese journaliem
which throws even the eiForte of the
Vancouver World in the line of fine
writing quite into the shade. It is
part of an account ol a shooting outrage:
'■Shooting Outrage. 0! Fearful Agony.
Khoon Tong, one of Phya Sou's rataff,
was on a miss-ion to Lampoon, and on
his return instantly shot dead by some
miscreants, scoundrels. 01 untimely
death. 0! fearful. 01 Hell. All Mends
their mor no'.   The cowardice
dogs is still at lar.e.   6 soldiers and six
poiior.nien were at once dispatched."
Frankly, we think the following to-
marks by the  Portland Oregonian are
amply warranted by ibe facts connected
with comic Oners, eo called.   Looked at
in the proper light there are few thingB
more demoralizing end degrading than
the average modern comic opera.   Here
is the indictment:
"Can no one feel the erudouees of the
atmosphere of somo of the present day
comic operas? Witty jeet and lovely
song are the gilding to a picture eo
deadly full o[ all that is low and cheap
that one is amnznl, asbamei), at the ap*
plimse won from self*respecting people
by these purveyors of the vile. It is
generally impossible to lay tbe linger of
criticism on a flagrant indecency. But
no limn can emerge from the three hours
ef thid wretched, tawdry expoture of
"life" without a feeling that he has been
polluted. Tho legitimate stage stands
for all tbst is noblest and beat, But the
ordinary comic opera, with tbe nhiivi-
tiiering loveliness of death, is the greatest impulse imaginable to dreams that
end in black despair. Life ie not that
ol the demi-monde, and amotion and
passion arc not the foul emanations of
liosomB seething with tbe nnilnlities of
fecuud sin,"
THOUGHTS  FOR TO-DAY.
Tbe desire of appearing clever often
prevents our becoming so.
Tho man who keopB pace with hie
good Intentions must he quite a sprinter,
Moat of us would be absolutely free,
but for tbe chains we have ourselves
riveted on.
It is natural and very easy to prophesy; but to prophesy right is not so
natural or very easy.
Nothing bringa more substantial joy
than a day's work well and honourably
and successfully done.
Bad temper Ib Ub own scourge. Few
things are more bitter tban to feel bitter. A man's venom poisons himself
more than his victim.

FATE AND AN EPISODE
tH-*f.-*W.f-*HW
I had not seen or heard anything of
Bene Fleury in five years. Tbie wub uot
surprising, as I bad abandoned the tur
moll of tbe capital and lived a very ru
tired life ln tbe country with my horizon
limited by tbe trees of my orchard, the
personnel of my establishment "reilucurt
to faithful old Blaise and Maraut" and
my stable to an old horse, which t on rare
occasions, was harnessed to a (.till older
carriage—which I bad bought at second
hand.
Examining my mail oue morning, I
was surprised to recognize on one of the
envelopes Fleury's characteristic hand*
writing—strong, nervous, vigorous like
the man himself. It evoked a vision of
hie slight, graceful, woll dressed figure
his fascinating and his penetrating and
rather eareastlo glance.
IN SPITE OF HIS GOOD LOOKS.
social succeeB, snd recngnizuu pusilion as
a leader of fashion, Kleiiry bad never, so
far as I knew, bad a love affair, He
seemed,.indeed, to.deepiei* the flattering
attentions lavished upon him. Ho wub
very reserved, and opened hiB purse
. mnch more freely than hii heart. All
that I knew abont liiiu was thnt he hail-
when quite youug, gone to Africa to exploit some newly discovered copper
mines, and at thirty had relumed i*. rich
man, and bad established smelt inn works
which, in the course of the past ten
years, had made bim a very much riohei
one.
He was upright aud jiiet.biitofiufle-s*
ible will and with little charity for human weakness.
People spoke of blm as "a very able
man"; nobody wbb ever known to call
him "a good felloir." Still, my recol
lection of blm was agreeable. There
were strange Contrasts iu bim that attracted, while they puzzled me.
His letter waB very brief, "My dear
friend," it said, "if you have not forgotten me completely, will you permit, me
to oome to your hermitage to shake
hands and ask a slight service of you?"
Of co. 'at T answered in the affirmative*; and a few days later went to the
station with tho old horse, the older carriage, and tbe still older Blaise,to receive
him.
For the first time I felt a little sshsm-
ed of, tbe antiquated and disreputable
appearance of the whole outfit.
Fleury waB a man of taste and had one
of tbe finest houses In Paris.
Hie carriages bore the stamp of the
most fashionable maker and hiB stable
was famous.
•'What will the elegant Parisian think
of my unliveried driver, of his twin
brother of Kosinante, and especially of
thli old fashioned rattletrap which 1
hive tbe assurance to call a carriage?" I
thought.
"Oh we are only country people," said
old Blaise towbom I had expressed my
feeling. "If the gentleman does not
like things be won't come again, that'**
all." I found Fleury little aged or
changed, he sprang lightly from the
train, and, before even extending bis
band to me, be turned and looked curiously over my old carriage.
"Of course!" I thought, in disgust.
But tbere was no contempt in Fleury's
glance. I thought that his checks flushed
a little, but, perhaps, I waa mistaken.
HE WAB MORE AGREEABLE THAN
EVER;
the favor he bad come to ask was a little matter of business which wae Bonn
adjusted, and the day passed like a
pleasant dream. The visit of thin alert
man of the world gave a welcome and
Wholesome shook to my growing rusticity.
In the evening as we walked back to
the railroad station, I observed that
Fleury seemed pensive not to Bay more.
"Perhaps hie affairs are not quite bo
flourishing as he says," I thought, for
he had represented them as "xeeedingly
prosperous.
To lighten his spirltB I erdd—"Well,
Fleury, yon nan tell my old friegclB what
a rtiatic I havo become In five years, I
predict ami forgive any number of j ike*
about uiy enbbiiges, about my thorough*
bred, and even my venerable old carriage."
"Ah I Tliat carriage!" Fleury exclaimed, with what was almost a sigh.
I Inoknd nt bim in surprise nnd some
irritation, supposing tbat he wae justing,
Theu he surprleod me mill more by Baying—
'>Bah! That i-i ancient history! For*
gotten! Quite forgottenIJ'
Weill This man is certainly a pur*-*.*
zli-l" I thought.
We walked on in eil«*mce for a minute
or two, Fleury keeping hie eyes on tht
ground anil his thoughts, apparently in
tbo clouds. Suddenly he turned to me
and said—
"After oil, perhaps I may as well tell
yon who so*love to dissect emotions and
who used to he our lay coufesfor.
Hut first tell me how you came by
this old. enn-inge which you yourself
ra.iko fun ol."
Oh, It h.'S bad a brilliant career. Before becoming the niftiest and sober
lonveyance of a man who has renounced
THE VANITIES OF THE WORLD,
it used to disphiy'thoae same vanities In
Un? Champs Ely sees. It. was the triumphal cbariotof a fashionable beauty I"
"Ah!" Paid Fleury, in a tone of dif-
flppointmout. "I suppose it wbb built
for this woman."
"No. It v-ig built by the celebrated
Rlsler, eome fifteen years ago, for a
wealthy manufacturer. Mprin, the sill;
uian.   l\'ihnps yen knew blm,"
'JI wan sure of Ul" Fleury exclaimed.
'i ktie-.v t could not bo mistaken."
After a long'pause and with evident
effort, tm continued—
"Well, I promised yon the story, and
hern it te:—
•'Probably you do not know tliat 1,
Rene Fleury, the 'copper king' of lo dui
Wits horn Hie ton oi a shoemakei'—er,
rather'of a cobbler. My father's shot,
was In a Southern villnge, and its windows looked upon the high gloomy wall
of a spinning mill. The proprietor of
that milt was .Ti-seph Morln.
""When I,was twelve years old my par*
ents died within a few months of each
other, and M. Morin,'who wae a kind-
hearted man, took pity on my desolate
condition, made me bis apprentice, and
arranged wiih the janitor of tho factory
for my board.
"Fur eight years I worked faithfully
and well—so well that at twenty I became Moriu's confidential secretary.
"I had mastered every detail of tlie
busincBS, and loved it.
"I hnd passed my evening* in reading
sn that while I could not call myself a
man of education, I waB hy no means nn
ignoramus.
Moritt had taken a groat liking to inland wished, I could see to belt-pr my
social norcition.
He often invited mo not only to re-
aeptious and fetes, Im- even to his family
table."
Fleury paused in hiB narration, and
for hall a minute walked on without
speaking, nervously pnatchlng at twigB
and breaking them off savagely,
HIS VOI0ET4U.CMIJLED A LITTLE
when he finally resumed hia Btoiy,
"Munn ii;mI :*. daughter. I shall not
iittfiupr, tn describe ber to you. Tbe
woman that one loves ia alwnys the fair-
CBt on earth, you know, and I loved Ct>
cile at fl rat sight.
You smile bnt it wasn't a bit (nuny.
It was atrocious, or 1 mi mil almost for me,
the cobbler'-*; sun, picked up aud sheltered out of pure charity, to daie to love
my benefactor's daughter—an heiress to
millions, to say nothing of her dower of
beauty.
"It lasled five years without; anyone
Buspecting—unless, perhaps, she did.
"She had an affectionate disposition
and her t-ensibilittes were acut". She
was aciinslomid to devlniog other people's Bufferings perhaps she discovered
mine.
"One glorious June day—I was twenty
live then—my patron invited me to t
rustic fete on one of bis properties several miles from tbe factory. On that
day my dear fellow, I learned aud felt
the extremes of joy and pain. Ceclie In
her white puminer draperies, seemed
like it beautiful apparition Irom another
world, and the privilege of being by ber
Ride intoxicated me witb happiness. Tbe
day passed in a auccession of sports,
pastimes aud rambles. At tbe close of
it I was sitting on a bench, and to my
surprise aud joy, Gecile came and sat
beside me.
" 'You must be very tired,'! said.
"Sbe fixed her clear, bouest eyes on
my face aud answered :—
" 'YeB, I nra tired morally. Tired of
thin life—it is so empty and artificial.
And I think—I feel Bure—that you feel
as I do.'
'•II. r eyes questioned me even more
searchingly than ber words, but I could
uot reply.   My heart wae too full.
"No doubt uhe feared tbat her manner had been too confidential, for ebe
presently* lelt mo and j lined a passing
group. Her manner, more than her
words, bad Bet my heart throbbing with
n mad ho-ie, in wbieb I scarcely dared
to trust.
"On the homeward drive Morln offered me a seat iti his carriage. It was now
so dark that I could see but vaguely, opposite me, Cti-iU-'B graceful outline and
her white, ungloved hands, which clasped a bunch of freshly withered roses.

The road lay along the riverside. The
air was warm, tho sky clear aud starry,
and we wero ell physically fatigued.
What wonder, then, that nu one
spokeV
"The silent, invisible presence of this
woman whom I loved so dearly tilled me
with strange fancies. It seemed to me
as if a mystic, impalpable bond were
slowly being woven between ns. Suddenly Bhe exclaimed i—
" 'Oh, I have dropped my roses.'
"I gropi d for the fl-were, found them,
and an I gave them to her our hands

"I cannot explain how it happened-
perhaps if was the fault of the rosea—
but wben our hands met tbey clasped'
mutually, and they remained clasped,
"(Jan you compieheni the delirious
happiness of tbat minute in which the
hand of this rich aud beautiful woman
lay lovingly in the hand of the cobbler's
son?
"Then you can also understand—for
you know me—wby I left the factory
ou the very next day. I vowed I would
become a rich man, a 'suitable match'
for Cecile Morln, and without declaring
my luv-r— in words—or seeking from her
any otber avowal tban the silent one in
the caniage, I started for Africa.
"You know how successful I was iu
my pursuit of fortnue during those five
years.
"As soon aa I returued to France I
went to the littlo village which had given me life and love. I found the spinning mill closed. Morln was dead. A
year after my departnre he had given
his daughter and her millions to a bankrupt duke. The duchess looked pale and
sad, they told me. It waa evident tbat
she had not found happiness in mar*

fine I went away? Wby had my false
pride made me ahiink from the possibility of Morin's ironical refusal or open
ridicule? Why had I not frankly told
him of ray purpose?
"To drown memory and remorse I
pliim-ed desperately into work and Into
what mon call pleasure.
"Fortune has favoured me, All my
calculations, all my enterprises, have
succeeded. I enjoy all tbe pleasures, all
the distractions of the most luxurious
life, and still my Income is more than 1
can spend. I am one of the princes of
Paris—but I have not been able to forget."
There was a ring of forced and false
gaiety in Fleury's voice as he added—
"Thie yarn waB provoked by the sight
ol yonr old carriage which I rccogniaed
at a glance—tbe carriage in which, fifteen years ago, when it wae new and
ffiBhionablo, we eat witb clasped hands
on that dark warm night in June.
"How little goes to tbe making or
marring of a man's destiny I Both, for
me, us me from tbe fall of a few rones
and thu touch of a woman's hand."
Ab we parted Fleury said—
"I am going to give a little supper our

In the tragic death, by murder, sulcldi
or accident of Mrs, Ellen Gore, wife of
the eldest eon of the Deputy Oom in is*
Biouer of Landrs ami Works for British

bd far as kuown:
Paris, Nov. 20.—The tragi? death of
tbe young American artist, Mre. Ellen
Gore, who was found fatally shot In the
apartmentB of a Russian musician named
De Rydz-iwskl, Wednesday, continues to
occupy the attention of the police and
the staff of the American Consulate. The
developments of the mystery were followed with eager Interest by the public
today, and brought forward many who
had known Mrs. Goie here and in A
ricfl, and from them her antecedents
were fully obtained. She had beeii a
pupil of the famous composer Mob*
kowEki, while De Rydzewekl wub a pupil
of Jean la Salle, tbo baritone of the
Grand Opera. The police can show no
further light on the causes which led to
the tragedy nf the cireumetauceB attend
ing Its enactment,
Mrs. Goie waa killed by a revolver
shot Wednesday, in tho apartment
occupied by Joau de Rydzewekl, a singer
of the Imperial Theatre, of Sf. Petersburg, De Rydssewskiat first said Mre.
Gore committed suicido, but subsequently he declared the revolver went ofl
accidentally. When fotiud the victim wan
unoouEclons, and bad a bullet wound
over her right eye. Two doctors were
summoned to attend ber, but she died
without regaining consciousness. The
police are dlepdaeil lo accept the statement of theyoyng Russian singer who
was io the room "t the time, that lb*
Bhootliig was the result ol nn accident
during a scufli i for the posRessimi of the
weapon. The Russian singer comse from
e rich and nol/|e Russian family. He Is
the son of a .Russian General, and has
uncles wbo Jjoltl high positions in the
government service. Mre. Gore iived in
tbe Avenue de la Grand Armee, net far
from the apartment of the RuBBian,
where tbe tragedy occurred,
An autopsy was held today by Dr,
Socquet, and resulted in a formal report
that the cause of duatb wbb a bullet
wound. U. S. Counsul-General Gowdy
assigned a member nf hiB stuff to attend
the autopsy and take notes of Ihe eon
ditlon of the body. That official reported
lhat'the bullet entered lhe forehead
above the lefteyeandwentclenr thioagti

The Prefect of Police designated Gae-
tinne Renpette, the expert armorer, lo
study the weapon and wound for the
purpose of determining tlie possibility of
eulclde.
Although many Monde of MrB. Gore
called on Mr, Gowdy, none claimed the
body, and late in the day he cabled Attorney BuMei'v nf Mexico City, asking as
to Its disposal,'
The most circumstantial account, concerning Mrs, Guru was furnished by
Vincent Toledo, director ot a leading
piano establishment in tbe Avenue de

him by letters from musical Mends in
New York, She appeared to him most

from M. Toledo for last night, and be
was horrified, ou going for her, to lind
her dead,
M, Moezowshi, on being interviewed,
said:
I cannot believe MrB, Gore has committed suicide. She waB of the bapph Bt
disposition. 1 never saw thu least evidence of melancholy. She was deeply
intereeted in ber work, and bail such
promise as a musician! It waa her
purpoie, after completing her musical
education, to return to America, She
inquired of me recently If I thought Bhe
would make an excellent professional.
She bae taken lessons of me every Tuesday, since October 10. Last Tuesday 1

SERMON IN BRIEF,
The Religion of Usefulness.
It is told of the great Cromwell tbat
when one aaid to bim, "You, sir, know
well the usefulneBB of piety," he prompt*
ly replied; "I know eomething better
—the pioty of ueeiulnesB."
The piety of usefulness is tbe kind
tbat the world needs. The piety that
site apart in caves or monasteries while
tbere are wrongs to be righted and work
to be done; the piety tbat is concerned
about phylacteries and ceremonials
while the Christ is being crucified out-
Bide tbe city gates; the piety that occupies its pew only on Sunday and feels
ii comfortable security in "belonging to
the church," while it allows others to
bear tbe burdens and make all the sacrl
fines, ie uot the sort that Ib bringing tbe
millennium nearer,
Simple, homely usefulness, prompted
by love of God to man, makes beautiful
eainte, and they are welcome every*
where, In the church, the home, the
neighbourhood, wherever their blessed
presence goes, they awaken thanksgiving and quicken drooping faith.
Prof. Anbin respectfully begs to announce that he will open his class in
elementary music neit Wednesday,
Dec. 2nd, at II o'clock a. m. This class
which ia free to all pupils, and which
will afford a valuable opportunity for
acquiring a thorough knowledge of the
theory of muelu, wilt be continued every
Wednesday forenoon, between the hours
