It is a shame and a disgrace to this
province that those huge importations

BRITISH COLUMBIA'S FOLLY.
t -.
No intelligent person passes through
thii province without dropping more or
lees caustic remark* upon tbe amazing
apathy and indolence of its people, especially ai regards tho development ol
Its agricultural possibilities.
One American visitor eaid to The
Leader recently that things could hardly
ba worse in this province, (rom an agricultural point of view, had the eiwaehee
alone been responsible for the devtlcp
ment, fiuch as It Ib. Thie Is pretty
strong language, but Ecarcely too severe,
Many dwellers in British Columbia
seem tohava got it into their honest
noddles that farming is a failure because
almost everybody can point tu eome*
body who has made a heart-sickening
botch of the Job. Yer, but did those
people ever take the trouble to enquire
Into the causes which brought about the
failure of the dreadful examples they
quote? We shall wager a free cot in
Ladysmith's coming hospital they never
•did. But we have; and It is a great
pleasure to report that with very rare
exceptions the caneea of failure were (1)
iasineis; ,2' ignorance; (3) bad management; (4j general unfltues-j for the
strenuous, robust life of the farmer.
Id the first place, how in the name of
common sense can any man hope to succeed when he rolls out of bed at noon,
•loaches through the day sucking a
atlnking tobacco plpo. or guzzling beer
at the nearest village guxzlery, neglecting to feed his poultiy aud Block, spray
his trees, weed his patch or do the otber
things that should be dono, and then
rolling Into his bunklongafter midnight,
•fuddled?
This is no fancy picture, nor in any
measure exaggerated; there are scores of
those indolent, aimless, purposeless
ne'er do weuls "farming" in British Co*
lu nubia and making a glorious mess,of
it. Such are the precluiis exam pith
dangled before him who talks of going
on the land In this province.
Of course, there are ca.eu where failure has .followed unremitting Induatry,
and apparently Intelligent (ffirt to succeed; but just enquire further and sure
enough the cause will b_ found—bad
judgment In selection of land, unocien<
title methods of cultivation, poor Jinan.

Mr. Richard McBride of D.wdney and
Sir Wilfrid Laurier have at least one
peculiarity in common; they both call
Ic "auny" and "manny"; meaning
"any" aud "many." Bir Wilfrid's
oddity in this respect attracted immediate attention in the United Kingdom
where they have a quick ear for to'.e
litems aud "had breaks." Mr. McBride
should now certainly fctlck to Mb darling
"auny," like a little "manny."

In view ot cert uiu things  that  have
taken place In this community lately we
may quote dr the edltlcatlori  ut  thoee
most interested, aud tbey   will  under*
stand us perfectly, these wise words of
Washington Irving:
With every exertion the best of tm-n
ean do hut a mu'lerate amount ot good ;
hut II BcciiiH In the power of tbe most
tiontemptihle individual to do Incalculable in it-chief,"
The best plan is always to get both
fiideB ot a story before judging; the other
aide generally makes a wonderful difference, "The most contemptible individual" in this case has not done any
mischief that cannot be mended by a
two-minute explanation of the real
truth.	
Tories are always hnppy when they

head has risen from about $30 to nbout
$.15. The annual expenditure on old
age pensions has reached Jf>197,20-3 within
three years, and there appears every
probability ot a still greater increase.

GEORGE THOMSON,

LABOR AWA'Oia
British Workingmen al Last- Realizing Thssr Opportunities.
Mr. Swanson, of Nauaimo, who recently spent Gome time visiting friends
ni the "old country," ittid who, ou hie
return lo Nanaimo a Bhort lime ngo,
wrote a most iutererjtiug and accurate
description of the municipal government of Glasgow, for Nanaimo Clarion,
wan iu L-ulysmith on Saturday and called at ttie 1.la-Jer offl-je to "Ehiko,"
Mr. Sffftiiaou bad an ittttnetitiug tiniP
ut it in Kn-t'laml nnd S'otland, ami
h.'urd mnet of tlm gtent labor laadtrt*'
flj>etk in -)tiMit\ LI<> also mot many of
1 hem, and did uot fail to compare notes
.voir liar-lie has come i-^-iin to tho front,
and is mre more very po-mtur. John
Burns re'ains his plane as perhnpa the
sturdiest aud most uncompromlBinji
milter for labor's interests iu thu Uniti'd
Kingdom to-day. What most pleated
*.]'-. S-A'tinetm was to note thu eplemlii)
organ:ziMou that is beiuti adopted
amount the great unions and labir eo
nietles Tnis is iti'iiiu to have Its t-fTai't
at the nest eeueral election, wheu a
tirea'er nuinlitr of labor representatives
-till ba nominated than ever IW ire, and
It li firmly btdieved many oi than wil
I'O elected to parliament.
Mr. Shannon Ib fairly confident tha1
the present 'dry government will mcei
iltfeat at the election, aud the opinion te
general that scarcely a government in
the history of Greet Britain more richly
deserved to be Bent about its business.
Mr. Swanson heard Lord it jeehery
speak in Glasgow on the temperance
question, and Mr. Svane.m called the
laird ot Dalmeny to order for an outrag*)
iiis Btate-uent i-s to the lack -of powers lo
slop t! e spread of the evil. One iliinj.-
fiat Btruck him was the fief, bold, out*
■jpiiktm tpecch of Ihe people and iht
iiewppt-ip-'ip. lf men or newEp-par:*
were toeiprt-ss ihemeelvee like that in
America they would Iw in tumble in five
-u'O'inds. For plain, emphatic li-muui;*-.
on uuy'burning question the Loudon
papers hud. No American newspaper
dare speak out on any siil'j jet as freely,
Ono thing ia cert-iin, (be ina-^ees of the
peoplu aro at Isut beginning to under-
stand tteir tujust position, regirdin--
the land question, f;ir Instance. All over
the United Kingdom intenee interest ip
being miiuifeiited in the land question,
Tho latPft monstrous onlr-age on the
libcrtitB ol the people, perpetrated hv
the Tory pRrty in the iniqnitons EJuiia-
tion It-ll has arotned a storm of paBeion-
ate indignation against Uib govurnment
truo'jgbuut England and Walts, which
*ill bo the victim* if lhat ecandflous
measure become Ut. A revival oi
he agitation for the abolition of the
House of Lords, and 'or the dit't.tt.ab-
lisbmcnt if the slate church id considered likely iu view cf tho approaching
election.
Many of tlie labor leaders are grand
BpeakeiB, arid It is very encouraging to
all fiiemls of reform to note tho deep interest takeu In their addressee by the
bnge audiences which crowd to hear the
champions of the people's lights. In
'act the outlook at present in Grear
Britain is brighter for labor (ban it hat
■aver been. If tbs workinnmen stand together and return their own chnaen representative! to parliament there ie no
question that the whole complexion ot
that body will speedily be changed.
There will he Eeen mon on the benches
who were sent tbeie not because they
bad made n big cricket score, or shot eo
many brace it hidi-lamo hlrdi, or be-
■ aniio they won a borne race, bm hi cause
their thousands of toiling comrades It
thc woiUtshopB of the land chose them
for their courane, intelligence and earnest determination to stand up for the
workers' rights and see that aristocrntic
-.eitUhtieEs and greed put through thai
lionet, no more of.tliose "one for you aui
two for mu" bills.
The landed proprietors of the United
Kingdom are going to be. put ou their
trial pretty eoou. It remains to be eeen
whether tbe imiane absurdity nf nHn.ii'-.-
a man to j-ill for three monthB f r steal*
ing pheneants' eggs, and letting the hru*
ul itifflan who rmUbhes bis wif.-'s fact
in a domeat'o brawl go with a live ehill*
log Qite ia to bu allowed to typify the
law ot tbe land any longer, or Whether
it is to he reversed, and the inndloid,
whohsemtdn the laws hr tome een-
uiitB hack, entirely in his own Interests, forced to yield somo of his unjust
privileges.
Mr. -Swansou returned to Nanalmo on
the noon train pri-p-ily imprinted wiih

Pierced hy shafts of time he bleeds,
Melted rubies sending
Through the rivor and tho sky,

Up to cloud-laud lifting:
Slow between them drifts the swan,
Tnizt two heavens drifting.

Many hundreds of deer have thus been

BANK FITTINGS ARRIVE
Installation of Plant at Tha Bank of
Commerce-
on Saturday last the largo Bale for the
new branch of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce In Ladysmith arrived from
Nanaimo by E, & N, railway, and was
transferred on skids, drawn by 8 home
from the station to Nicholson's block. It
waa a big j)h, and Mr. J, McLinnan deserves credit for tbe way he did ir. The
safe weighs about four aud a hall tons,
Tbe wire screens and *,ron work need
in the old premises of the bank in Nanaimo bave also been sent down to Ladysmith and will be fitted up here Immediately. If tho bubiness should warrant it
there is a possibility that the bank may
build a suitable place far itself before
long. Tho LidysmitU branch will he
under the management of Mr. S'ewart
of the Nanaimo buuich.   Ho will hnve
s BEsis'iint Mr. HuleniB, late ol the Vic*
toria branch. Mr. Geo, Williams, manager tn Nanaimo, will exercise general
superintendence over both branches.
Il Is pleasant to observe that the bank
Is doing a considerable amount of business already, although It la also a comical fact that quite a number of people in
Lailysmith are not cveu yet awaie that a
bank has beeu established heie. It Is
true tbey havo heard of tj-ieou Victoria's
death by this time, end that the Boet
war had etarted, but thie b-ink i-. flair
was too sudden for them. Tbeir astonishment on learning, six days after the
bank opened, that euch an '•instil-lotioii"
had come to town was great; and pathetic lo witness. They don't read tin-
Leader, therefore how could they kuow?

NANAIMO'S NEW INDUSTRY
Japaness Enterprise Again Asserts
Itself,
Fish guano will he manufactured on a
large scale by a company of Japanese at
Departure Bay, Nanalmo, commencing
immediately.
Tho proprietors ot the new Industn
have almost finLh-d a large and substantial wharf for tho purposes of their
traffic, and they are now busily installing tbe plant with which the manufacture ot the guano is to be accomplished.
Not only have those enterprising Japanese put in their wharf and buildings,
but they bave ah o managed to secure a
pretty good market for the products of
their factory. They will be prepared to
buy herring, salmon, dog-fish, cod, etc.,
in any quantity. Most ot tlie guano will
he sent to Vancouver nnd Victoria to be
handled theie by an agent, who will iu-
trodnce it to the notice of the farmers
throughout the province. It ie understood that this is only the firat of a number of such factories whi-.-h are to be t-a-
tabli&hed up and down the British Columbia coast hy Japanese.
Tno manufactories about to be opened
at Nanalmo will have a capacity of bsv
eral lots a day, The factory has a com*
pletc outfit ti boats and other appliances.
and quite a largo etuff of fishermen. The
manufacture of fish guano is a flourish"
ing industry in Japan, where it is mnde
hy a curious procesB; the same will'be
used iu the N-inaimo factory.
Tbe starting if this Industry showp
that the Japanese are fully alive to the
opportunitiee presented in this prcvinee
and that they ure determined to make
the most of them. The lish guano man
ufacturers are perfectly confident ti.nt
they can make this industry successful.

PIT LAMP SHOOTING
Tho Police Are Now After the Law
It the provincial police succeed in
catching one of the men who are nightly
bunting in tbe woods around Wellington, Nanaimo and Ladysmith and using
the pit lamp to lure the hapless animals
io their death, r>uch an example will he
mudu of him as will probibly pnt a stop
to the piaclice very Biiddenly aud for u
long lime. Several cases havo been reported to. The Leader where cows and
calves, and in one eaee, horses, have

The penalty Is twelve mouths's imprisonment and a fine of $ir.O It is believed thnt the first < (tender caught will
receive the full penalty, "pour encourage r
tie aut'ep."
