After doing justice to n sumptuous
repast, the Young Meu, at tlio call of
the Rev. G. H. Wilsou, (who filled the
position of Chairman of the evening),
proposed and replied to the
following toasts: "Health of the King,"
proposed by Mr. Wilson and joined
iu right loyally by all present. "Welfare
of the Perish," by H. T. Devine, aud
responded to by J. A. llirnniigham,
iusonui well-chosen suggestions, which
if carried out will lead to the success of
St. Michael's. "Parish Officers," proposed by Mr. Tauuicliffe, iu a woll
directed speech. This was responded to
by Mr. Myites, who quite eclipsed ull
former speeches, boing frcqueutly
interrupted by cheers. "Parish Socio
ties," proposed by Mr. B. Moyles in a
speech. Mr. Birmingham Sr.. replied
iu a masterly way, bringing very forcibly beforo the niiuds of the Youug Men
present, what should be and what should
uot be in these societies. His pleasant
way of showing the different points
brought forth bursts of laughter from
mauy of those preseut who hnd to put
ou the shoes because they fitted. Tho
last toast "The Yonng People," especially "The Ladies," proposed by Mr.
Wilsou, (In tho absence of Dr. Coy),
aud replied to by Mr G. Boult, who iu
a woll-wordcd uddress, graudly rose to
the ocensiou nud did justice to tbo
Indies. Tho toasts were iutorspered
by sougs and recitations from Messrs

Tho Young Meu then adjourned to
the parlors nnd music and songs brought
tlio most enjoynblu ovening ever spent

Trusting that many more such evenings will be spent by the Young Men
I wish them every success.

Then I told her of Lady Mary's message and begged, lf she would not
speak ln words what I so longed to
hear, she would at least tell lt by allowing me to deliver only one little
thousandth part of the message Mary
bad sent, but she drew away and said
she would return to the castle if I
continued to behave ln that manner. I
begged hard and tried to argue the
point, but logic seems to lose its force
in sucb a situation, and all I said
■railed nothing. Jane was obdurate
■nd was for going back at once. Her
persistence was beginning to. look llko
obstinacy, and I loon grew so angry
that I asked no permission, but delivered Mary's message, or a good part of
lt at least, whether she would or no,
. and then sat back and asked her what
.he was going to do about It
Poor little Jane tbougbt she was tin-
loue for life. She sat there half pouting, half weeping, and said she could
lo nothing about lt; tbat she was alone
now, and lf I, her only friend, would
treat ber that way she did not know
where to look.
"Where to look?" I demanded. "Look
here, Jane; here. You might as well
. understand flrst as last that I will not
I be trilled with longer, and that I Intend
to continue treating you tbat way as
long as we both live. I have determined not to permit yon to behave as
you have for so long, for I know you
love me. You have balf told me so a
dozen times, and even your half words
are whole truths. There Is not a fraction of a He ln yon. Besides, Mary told
me that yon told her so."
"She did not tell you that?"
"Yes, noon my knightly honor." Of
coarse there was but one answer to
this—tears. I then brought the battle
to close quarters at once, and, with my
arm uninterrupted at my lady's waist,
"Did you not tell ber so? I know yon
will speak nothing but the truth. Did
you not tell ber? Answer me, Jane."
The fair head nodded as she whispered
between the hands that covered her
"Yes. I—I-d _ld," and I—veil, I delivered the rest of Mary's message,
and that, too, without a protest from
Truthfulness ls a pretty good thing,
after all.
So Jane was Conquered at last, and I
heaved a sigh as the battle ended, for
It bad been a long, hard struggle.
I asked Jane wben we should be married, but sbe said sbe conld not tblnk
of that now—not until Bhe knew that
Mary vas safe, bnt she wonld promise
to be my wife some time.
We vent back to the castle, and as
ve parted Jane aaid timidly: "I am
glad I told you, Edwin. Glad lt is
She bad evidently dreaded it, bnt—I
vas gfad too. .Very glad. Then I
went to bed.
ITTTIUATEVElt the king might
| W I think, I knew Lord Wolsey
■MM would quickly enough guesa
KSBiaiB the truth when be beard tbat
the princess was missing, and would
have a party In pursuit The runaways, however, would have at leaBt
twenty-four honrs the start, and a ship
leaves no tracks. Wben Mary left me,
sbe was perhaps two-thirds of a league
from the rendezvous, and night was
rapidly falling. As her road lay tbrough
a dense forest all the way she would
bave a dark, lonely ride of a few
minutes, and I was somewhat uneasy
for that part of the Journey. It bad
been agreed that lf everything was all
right at the rendezvous Mary should
turn loose her horse, whlcb bad always been stabled at Berkeley castle
and vould quickly trot home. To
further emphasize her safety a thread
would be tied ln his forelock. The
horse took bis time In returning and
did not arrive nntil the second morning
after the flight, bnt when be came I
found tbe thread and, unobserved, removed it I quickly took lt to Jane,
who has lt yet and cherishes lt for the
mute message of comfort lt brought
her. In case the horse should not return I vas to find a token ln a bc.lov
tree near the place of meeting, but the
thread ln tbe forelock told us our
friends had found each other.
When ve left the castle, Mary wore
nnder her riding habit a suit of man's
attire, and as we rode along she would
shrug her shoulders and laugh as lf It
were a huge Joke and by the most comical little pantomime call my attention
to her unusual bulk. So wben sbe
found Brandon the only change necessary to make a man of her was to
throw off the riding habit and pull on
the Jack boots and slouch hat both of
which Brandon butt with l-.im.
They wasted no time, you may be
sure, and were soon under way. In a
few minutes they picked up the two
Bristol men who were to accompany
them, and when night had fairly fallen
left tho bypaths and took to tbe main
road leading from London to Bntb and
Bristol. The road was a fair one—that
ls, lt was veil defined and there was
no danger of losing lt; ln fact, there
was more danger of losing one's self in
Its fathomless mudboles and quagmires. Brandon had recently passed
over lt twice and had made mental
note pt the worst places, so he hoped to
avoid them.
Soon the rain began to fall ln a soaking drizzle; then the lamps of twilight
went out and even the shadows of the
nlgbt were lost among themselves ln
blinding darkness. It was one of those
black nights fit for witch traveling,
and no doubt every witch ln England
was out brewing mischief. Tbe horse's
hoofs sucked and splashed ln tbe mud
with a sound that Mary thought might
be beard at Land's End, aud the hoot
of an ovl, now and then disturbed by a
witch, would strike upon ber ear wltb
a volume of sound Infinitely disproportionate to tbe size of any owl she bad
ever seen er dreamed of before.
Brandon woro our cushion, the grent
cloak, and had provided a like one of
suitable proportions for the princess.
This camo in good play, as her fine gentleman's attire would be but poor stuff
to turn the water. The wind, which
had arisen wltb Just enough force to
set up a dismal wall, gave the rain a
horizontal slant and drove lt lu at every
opening. The flaps of tbe comfortable
great cloak blew back from Mary's
knees, and she felt many a chilling
drop through her fine new silk trunks
that made her wish for buckram in
their place. Soon the water began to
trickle down her legs and find lodgment ln the jack boots, and as tbe rain
and wind came ln tremulous littlo
whirs sbe felt vretched euough—she
vho had alvays been so veil sheltered
from every blast Now and then mud
and water vould fly up into her face-
striking usually ln the eyeB or mouth—
and then again her horse vould stumble and almost throw her over his head
as he sank, knee deep, Into some unexpected hole.
All of this, with the thousand and
one noises that broke the still worse
silence of tbe inky night soon began to
vork npon her nerves and make her
fearful. The road was full of dangers
aside from stumbling horses and broken necks, for many were the stories
of murder and robbery committed
along the route they vere traveling. It
Is true they had two stout men, aud all
vere armed, yet they might easily
come upon a party too strong for them,
and no one could tell what might happen, thought the princess. There was
that pitchy darkness through which
she could hardly see her horse's bead—
a thing of Itself that seemed to have Infinite powers for mischief and which
no amount of argument ever Induced
any normally constituted woman to believe vas the mere negative absence of
light and not a terrible entity potent
for all sorts of mischief. Then that
vailing howl that rose and fell betimes. No wind ever made sucb a noise
she felt sure. There were those shining white gleams which came from the
little pools of water on tbe road, looking like dead men's faces upturned and
pale. Perhaps they were water and
perhaps they vere not Mary had all
confidence ln Brandon, but that very
fact operated against her. Having that
confidence and trust ln him, she felt
no need to waste her own energy in being brave. So she relaxed completely
and bad the feminine satisfaction of
allowing herself to be thoroughly
Is lt any wonder Mary's gallant but
.womanly spirit sank low ln tbe face
of all those horrors? She held out
bravely, however, and an occasional
clasp from Brandon's hand under cover
of the darkness comforted her. When
nil those terrors wonld not suggest even
a thought of turning back, you may
Judge of tbe character of this girl and
her motive.
_hey traveled on, galloping when
they could, trotting when they could
not gnllop, and walking when they
must, and about midnight arrived at
the Inn where the relay ot horses was
awaiting them.
The inn was a rambling old thatched
roof structure, half mud, half wood
and all filth. There are many Inns ln
England that are tidy enough, but this
one vas a little off the main rond—selected for that reason—and tbe un-
cleanness was not the least of Mary's
trials that hard night She had not
tasted food since noon ond felt the
keen hunger natural to youth and
health such as hers after twelve hours
of fasting and eight hours of riding.
Her appetite soon overcame her repugnance, and she ate with a zest that
was new to her the humblest fare that
had ever passed her lips. One often
misses the zest of life's Joys by having
too much of tbem. One must want a
thing before lt can be appreciated.
A hard ride of five hours brought onr
travelers to Bath, which place they
rode around Jnst as the sun began to
gild the tile roofs and steeples, and another hour brought tbem to Bristol.
The ship was to sail at sunrise, bnt
as the wind had died ont vlth the

night there vas no danger of Its sailing vlthout them. Soon the gates
opened, and the party rode to the Bov
and String, vbere Brandon had left
tbelr chests. The men vere then paid
off; quick sale vas made of the horses;
breakfast vas served, and tbey started
for the vbarf, vlth their chests following ln the hands of four porters.
A boat soon took tbem aboard the
Royal Hind, and nov lt looked as lf
their daring scheme, so full of Improbability as to seem Impossible, bad
really come to a successful Issue.
From tbe beginning, I think, lt bad
never occurred to Mary to doubt the
result.  There had never be«n» with her
eveq it suggestion of posaioie railure,
unless lt vas that evening ln our room,
when, prompted by her startled modesty, she bad said she could not bear
for ns to see ber ln the trunk bose.
Now that fruition seemed about to
crown her hopes she was happy to her
heart's core, and when once to herself
wept for sheer joy. It IS little wonder
sbe wns happy. She was leaving behind no one whom she loved excepting
Jane nnd perhaps me. No father nor
mother; only a sister whom she barely
knew and a brother whose treatment
of her bad turned her heart against
blm. She was also fleeing with the one
man ln all the world for ber and from
a marriage that was literally vorse
than death.
Our travelers were of course greatly
In need of rest, so Mary went to ber
room and Brandon took a bertb ln the
cabin set apart for the gentlemen.
They had both paid for their passage,
although they bad enlisted aud were
part of the ship's company. They
were uot expected to do Bailor's work,
but would be called upon In case of
fighting to do their part at that Mary
was probably as good a fighter In her
own wny as one could find In a long
Journey, but how sbo wns to do her
part witb sword and buckler Brandon
did not know. Thnt, however, was a
bridge to be crossed when tbey should
come to lt
They had gone aboard about T
o'clock, nnd Brandon hoped the ship
would be well down Bristol channel
before he Bhould leave bis bertb. But
the wind that had filled Mary's Jack
boots with rain and had howled so dismally all night long would not stir,
now that lt was wanted. Noon came,
yet no wind, and tbe Bun shone as placidly as lf Captain Charles Brandon
vere not fuming with Impatience on
the poop of the Royal Hind. Three
o'clock and no wind. The captain said
lt would come with night, but sundown
was almost at hand, and no wind yet
Brandon knew tbls meant failure lf lt
held a little longer, for he was certain
the king, with Wolsey's help, would
long since have guessed the truth.
Brandon had not seen the princess
since morning, and the delicacy he felt
about going to ber cabin made the situation somewhat difficult After putting lt off from hour to hour In hope
that she would appear of her own accord, he at Inst knocked at her door
and, of course, found tbe lady in trouble.
The tbougbt of the princess going on
deck caused a sinking at bis heart every time It came, as he felt that lt was
almost impossible to conceal ber Identity. He bad uot seen ber in ber new
male attire, for wben sbe threw off ber
riding habit on meeting him tba night
before be bnd Intentionally busied himself about the horses and saw her only
after the great clonk covered her as a
gown. He felt that however well ber
garments might conceal her form, no
man on earth ever bnd such benuty in
his face as her transcendent eyes, rose
Anted cheeks and coral Tips, wTfa their
cluster of dimples, and bis benrt sank
at the prospect She might hold out for
awhile with a straight face, but when
the smiles should come—lt were just
as well to hang a placard about her
neck, "This ls a woman." Tbe telltale
dimples wonld be worse tban Jaue for
outspoken, untimely truthfulness and
trouble provoking candor.
Upon entering Brandon found Mary
wrestling with the problem of her complicated male attire, the most beautiful picture of puzzled distress Imaginable. The port was open aud showed
her rosy as the morn when sbe looked
up at him. The Jack boots were ln a
corner, and ber little feet seemed to
put up a protest all tbelr own agnlnst
going Into them tbat ought to have
softened every peg. She looked up at
Brandon with a half hearted smile and
then threw her arms about his neck
and sobbed like tbe child sbe was.
"Do you regret coming, Lady Mary?"
asked Brandou, wbo, now tbat she was
alone with him, felt tbat he must take
no advantage of the fact to be familiar.
"No, no! Not for one moment. I am
glad—only too glad. But wby do you
call me 'Lady?' You used to call me
'Mary.' "
"I don't know; perhaps because you
are alone."
"Ab! that ls good of you; but you
need uot be quite so respectful."
The matter was settled by mute bnt
satisfactory arbitration, and Brandon
continued: "You must make yourself
ready to go on deck. It will be bard,
but lt must be done."
He helped her with the heavy jack
boots and handed ber tbe rain stained
slouch hat which she put on and stood
a complete man ready for tbe deck-
that ls, as complete as could be ovolved
from her utter femininity.
Wben Brandon looked her over, all
hope went out of blm. It seemed that
every change of dress only added to
her bewitching beauty by showing it
ln a new phase.
"It will never do. There Is no disguising you. What is lt that despite
everything shows so unmistakably
feminine? What shall we do? I have
lt You shall remain here under the
pretense of Illness uutil we are well at
sea, and then I will tell the captalu all.
It ls too bad, and yet I would not have
you one whit less a woman for all tho
world. A man loves a woman who Is
so thoroughly womanly that nothing
can bide it"
Mary was pleased at bis flattery, but
disappointed at tbe failure ln herself.
She had thought tbat surely these garments would make a man of her In
which tho keenest eye could not detect
a flaw.
They were discussing the matter
when a knock came at tho door, with
tbe cry, "All hands on deck for Inspection." Inspection! Jesul Mary would
not safely endure lt a minute. Brnndon left her at once and went to the
"My lord is 111 and begs to be excused
from deck Inspection," bo said.
Bradhurst, a surly old half pirate of
the saltiest pattern, answered; "111?
Then he had better go ashore as soon
as possible. I will refund his money.
We canuot make a hospital out of the
ship. If his lordship ls too 111 to stand
inspection, see thnt he goes ashore at
This last was addressed to one of the
ship's officers, wbo answered with the
usual "Aye, aye, sir," and started for
Mary's cabin.
That was worse tban ever, and Brandon quickly said he would have his
lordship up at once. He then returned
to Mary, and aftor buckling on ber
sworn ana oclt tncy went on upck nno

to have foreseen this from the very

"I hope your lordship Is fooling better," and then, surveying lier from
head to foot, with a broad grin on his
features, "I declare, you look the picture of health, If I ever saw It Uow

Mary quickly responded, "Fourteen
"Fourteen," returned Brndhurst.
"Well, I dou't think you will shed
much blood. You look more like a
deuced handsome girl tban nny man
I ever saw."' At this the men all
laughed nnd were very Impertinent In
the free and easy manner of such gentry, most of whom were professional
adventurers with every finer sense
dulled nnd debased by years of vice.
These fellows, half of tbem tipsy,
now gathered about Mary to Inspect
her personally, each on his own account. Their looks and conduct were
very disconcerting, but they /tdl nothing insulting until one fellow gave hei

knocked the fellow off the poop Into

moment, and swords were soon drawn
aud clicking nway at a great rate. The
contest was brief, however, as the fellow wus uo sort of match for Brandon,
wbo, with bis old trick, quickly twisted his adversary's sword out of bis
grasp and wltb a flush of his own
blade flung It Into the sen. The other
men were now talking together nt a
little distanco In whispers, and lu a
moment one drunken brute shouted:
"It is no man. It ls a woman. Let us
see more of her!"
Before Brandon could Interfere the
fellow had unbuckled Mnry's doublet
at the throat and with a jerk had
torn lt off, carrying awny the sleeve
nud exposing Mary's Bhoulder, almost
throwing her to the deck.
He waved his trophy on high, but
his triumph wns short lived, for almost
instantly lt fell to tbe deck, and with
It the offending band severed at tbe
wrist by Brandon's sword. Three or
four friends of the wounded man
rushed upon Brandon, whereupon Mary
screamed and began to weep, which of
course told the whole story.
A great laugh went up, antl Instantly

remonstrated Le Page bluntly.
"It's putting our hands upon shoulders that are bending over our own

prose history are again different. Then
It ls nlmost Impossible to distinguish
the tenses, and, lastly, the adjective
ls generally Indistinguishable from the

Professor Blalkie used to form a
very picturesque feature ln the Edinburgh streets. He was a cheery old
patriarch, with handsome features and
hair falling In ringlets about his shoulders. No one who had seen him could

Blalkie was Impressed by the filthl-

said at a recent luncheon:—"Whenever I see a toothpick I think of a dinner that was given In Rome ln honor
of two Turkish noblemen. I sat beside the younger of the noblemen. He
glittered with gold embroidery aud
great diamonds, but, nevertheless, I
pitied him sincerely, for he was
strange to our table manners, and
some of his errors wore both ludicrous and painful. Toward the dinner's
end a servant extended to the young
man a plate of toothpicks. He waved
the plate away, saying ln a low and
bitter voice:—'"No thank you. I

Wonderful Cases of Automatlo Writing—Remarkable Phenomenon.
Automatic writing was the' subject
which Prof. Rlohet came all the way
from Paris to discuss before the Society of Psychical Research, says The
London Standard. Prof. Rlchet ls the
president of ths society, but, as he was
reading the paper, the chair was taken
by Sir Oliver Lodge. The professor, addressing bis audience ln French, described ln detail a remarkable phenomenon which came under his personal
Mme. X., a friend of Prof. Rlchet,
knows no Greek, yet on various occasions she has written, while ln a tranoe,
Greek sentenoos with a definite meaning Once she sent him by mall three
pieces of Greek whioh he was finally
able to trace to an exceedingly rare
dictionary of Trench and Greek, of
whioh Mme. X had no knowledge whatsoever. On another occasion, when he
went to call upon hor towards evening, when the rays of the aeMlng sun
were deepening the shadows ln the
room, she wrote a sentenoe ln Greek
which meant, "At Bunrlse and sunset
the shadows lengthen." She wrote ln a
current hand, but she made mistakes
ln plaolner the aoconts, and occasionally
made such slips as oould only be made
by a person having no knowledge of
the language. For exumplo, ahe would
write the Greek letter "a" by mistake
for the letter "o," with an aooent over
It—a very natural mistake for a copy-'
1st, who la completely Ignorant of the
language he la writing, and ls simply
copying by eye, but one which, as It
renders a word quite unpronounceable,
could not be made, even through otrei
lessness, by anyone knowing the language.
These, then, are the facta: Prof.
Rlchet, ln clearing the ground for discussion, took lt as axiomatic that Mme.
X acted throughout ln good faith. He
oould not bring proofs' of this, but he
could vouch for her good faith as ho
could for his own. The lady certainly
did not know Greek. "Tou cannot con-
oeal from all your friends and relatives
your knowledge ot a language like
Greek, and, ln any ease, we have her
word for it that she did not know the
language. Moreover, she had never seen
the book from which she quoted three
How could such a phenomenon be
accounted for? It could not, be an ef
fort of memory, for Mme. X had never
to her knowledge seen the book from
which ehe quoted. Equally, lt could
hardly be unconscious memory of a
book she had seen and forgotten, for
that would be to explain a strange phenomenon by another phenomenon
equally strange and lnexplloable. Prof.
Rlchet suggested comparisons with
mathematical and musical prodigies,
but found them unconvlniong. A wonderful child ean remember the whole
of a musical score which ls contained
ln a large book, but then he ls dealing
with a language be knows thoroughly.
So It Is with the lightning calculator;
he ls thoroughly versed ln figures. Horo,
on the oontrary, ls a lady who writes
pages of Greek, more or laaa ccrreotly,
without any knowledge whataoever of
Greek. Prof. Rlchet then suggested
spiritualistic explanations, but found
them unsatisfactory. In tho end be had
to admit that there was no explanation. In the discussion which followed, Blr Oliver Lodgo summed up the
position as aet before the audience in
fhe president's address, but he oould
not quite accept without reserve the
question of the genuineness of Mme. X. -
The society had perfect faith ln Prof.
Rlchet and Prof. Rlchet had perfect
faith ln Mme. X; but the conclusion
did not follow that the society must
have perfeot faith in Mme. X. Then
the comparison of the Infant prodigy
could not be altogether rejected. There
was the wonderful Spanish ohlld at
two rears old, who had appeared before
the King of Spain and before Prof. Rlchet himself. The mother of this ohlld
once played over an Intricate piece ot
musio, and, on going afterwards Into
tbe next room, she heard some one re
peeling the performance. Returning,
ahe saw to her oonuternntlon her Infant child playing the music quite oor-
rootly. Obviously, the child oould have
no previous knowledge at all. Here,
then, waa a sort of parallel.
Other speakers produced Strang*
oases of automatlo writing, but none
were of quite such a definite and extraordinary nature ss tbe case presented by Prof. Rlahet. Mrs. Venal, for
example, cold the society how her
daughter and a friend of here produced
by table rapping a Greek story which
tho table erroneously attributed to
Pauaantas, but afterwards gave the
correct chapter and verse In Hellodor-
ua. Tha story was not quoted word
for word, but the substance was cor.
roctly given. In this caso, however,
both the mediums were Greek, and pro
bably had chapters of Hollodorus stored away ln the subliminal consciousness. Then came Mr. Harris with a
story told by Huxley 80 years ago, of
a soldier wounded In a battle who
wrote ln unknown languages from dlo-
.atlon while In a state of trance; and
lastly Prof. Barrett produced an au
thentlc story of a lady who waa hyp-
notlaod by a clergyman. Ob One occasion the clergyman asked her to write
down the contenta of a letter which had
Just arrived by post and waa unopened.
She wrote most of the oontonts cor-
la the discussion lt was generally
taken tor granted that Mme. X had
exhibited only fhe powers of a oopy-
1st, for, as Prof. Rlohet explained, ahe
had made mistakes In apelDng Which
could only be made by a person oout
pletely Ignorant of tbe language. And
ao Mrs. Verral believed that Mme. X
must have been under eome aert of
hypnotic control, but waa Influenced
through her eye only and not through
her Intelligence. But there were other
tnatanoea, overlooked la fl_e discussion.
where Mme. X had written sentences
with a meaning applicable te the Immediate circumstances; for example,
when she wrote her sentenoe about the
ehadows. In auch a cose Bhe must bave
been controlled through her Intelligence. In fact, the dleouaalon did not
carry the matter any further than the
president brought tt In bis address.
A lady writes Greek who does not
know Greek, and quotes aentenoee from
a Greek book which she has never

opinion that Bho possessed that requisite hersolf. "It's wonderful," she said In
conclusion, "what a difference there ls
between people." "Yes," replied
WhlBtlor, "thoro Is a great deal of difference between matchoa, too, lf you

Premier McBride, it apears, is responsible for the unspeakable crime
of having had a communication from
Premier Gotiin on the subject of better terms.   ■ What  the  former's  attitude is ill regard to the co-operation
with the otlier provinces will be dis-.
closed later on.    It will probably be
found consistent with previous representations made to Ottawa, not only
by  tLe   McBride  administration 'but
. preceding  administrations,  of  which
good   Liberals  like   Messexs   W.   C.
Wells, J; D. Prentice and W. W. B.
McTrnes  were  members.     The general   tenor  of   these   representations
has been that while there is an aspect   of   the  case   for  better   terms
in which all the provinces are equally
Intrrfsfcr and can cotpneoM oejen,
interested and can co-operate,  there
are   conditions   in   British   Columbia
which   differentiate  its   claims   from
those of all  and justify special consideration    and    special    treatment.
From lack of knowledge of the subject   some   persons,   whose   attitudes
on   the   question   is  inexcusable,  fail
. tn   realize  the   distinction.      If  British Columbia claims were settled un-
Mformly with those of all the provin-
( ces she would relatively be no better
• off, and in one material respect would
be worse off.     We are glad to see,
however, that the demand of the provincial   authorities  for   an   impartial
investigation of all the facts has at
last  been   locally  recognized.     That
; is ail really that the province asks;
-and if it fails to prove its case then
I the  question  will be  forever  set  at
rest.—Victoria "Colonist."

the publication of. the valuable weekly newspapers. Decidedly it is on
these the welfare of the country very
largely depends. The metropolitan
daily cannot possibly know the needs
of the various localities and small cities. Only the local newspapers can
protect local needs and influence local
opinion. Of course we are glad to
have "as many people as possible read
the Chicago American in the big cities and in the little cities. But we
hope that in every small town and in
every village there will be enough
intelligent and public spirit on the part
of the inhabitants to support earnestly and enthusiastically the local weekly paper, giving encouraging approbation and a good living to the local editor, who alone can represent and de--
fend justice and public spirit among
his neighbors. That man is unfortunate who cannot afford to take two
newspapers at today's prices. He who
can only one paper, in our opinion,
should display his sense of duty to his
locality by taking the local newspaper."
