{ The Filigree Ball I
BY ANNA KATHERINE GREEN
f^ AUTHOR OF ...
"THE LEAVENWORTH CASE."
as
pos-
S9mt99m9mMSS0mm9m0mm0
' v.'.ly do you ask me tnese questions in tones of such suspicion? Is
it not plain enough that my wife
took her own life under a misapprehension of my state of mind toward
hor, that you should feel it necessary
to rake up these porsonal matters,
which, however interesting to the
world at large, are of a painful nature to me?"
"Mr. Jeffrey," retorted the other,
with a sudden grave assumption of
dignity not without its effect in a
caso of such serious import, "we do
nothing without purpose. Wo ask
these quostlons and show this interest becauso the charge of suicide
which has hitherto been mnde nguinst
your wife i3 not entirely sustained
by the facts. At least she was not
alono when she took her life. Some
one was in the house with her."
lt was startling to observe the effect of this declaration upon him.
"Impossible!" he criod out In a
protest as forcible aa lt was agonized. "You are playing with my mis-
try. She could have had no ono
there; sho would not. There is not
a man riving before whom sho would
have fired that deadly shot; unless it
was myself—unless It was my own
wretched," miserable self."
Tho remorseful whisper ln which
those final words wero uttered carried
them to m.v hoart, which for some
itrhnge and unaccountable reason
had been gradually turning toward
this man. But my less easily affected companion, seeing his opportunity and possibly considering that it
was this gentleman's right to know
ln what a doubtful light ho
ilg'tiL a"iuuln bi irony as was
siblc:
"You should know better than wo
ln whose presence sho would choose
to die—if she did so choose. Also
who would bo likely to tio the pistol to hor wrist and blow out the
candlo wheu the dreadful deed wus
over."
The laugh which seemed to be tho
only means of violent expression remaining to this miserable man was
kept down by some amazing thought
wliich seemed to paralyze him. Without making any attempt to refute a
suggestion that fell Just short of
a personal accusation, he sank down
in tlio first chair lio camo to and be-
enmo, os It wero, lost in tho vision
of that ghastly ribbon-tying and tho
solitary blowing out of tho candle
upon this scene of mournful death.
Then with a struggling sense of having hedi'd something which called for
answer, he roso blindly to his feot
and managed to let fall theso words;
"Yoij nre mistaken—no ono was
thero, or if any ono was—it was not
I. There is a man in this city wbo
can provo it."
But when Mr. Jeffrey was asked to
give tho name of this man, bo showed confusion nnd presently was obliged to admit that he could neither recall his namo nor remember anything about liim, but that he wns
somo ono whom ho knew well, nnd
who know him well. He affirmed that
tho two had mot and spoken near
Soldiers' Home shortly after the sun
Went down, nnd that the man would
be sure to remember this meeting
lf we could only find him.
As Soldiers' Homo was several
miles from tho Moore house antl unite
out of the way of all his accustomed haunts. Coroner Z. nsked hiin how
he camo to be thero. He replied that
he hnd just come from Hock Creek
Cemetery. That he had been in a
wretched state of mind all day, and
possibly boing Influenced by whut lie
hnd heard of tlio yearly vigils Mr.
Moore was in the habit of keeping
there, had taken a notion to stroll
among tbo graves, in search of tbo
rest and peace of mind ho had failed
to lind in his aimless walks about
the city. At least, that was the
way he chose to account for the
meeting he mentioned. Falling into
reverie again, ho seemed to bo trying
to recall tlio namo which at this
moment was of such importance to
hiin. But it was without avail, aa
he presently acknowledged.
"I can not remember who it was.
My brain is whirling, and I can recollect nothing but that this man
and myself left the cemetery together on tho night mentioned, Just as
tho gate was being closed. As it
closes at sundown, the hour cun bo
fixed to a mlnuto. It was somewhere near seven, I' believe; near
enough, I am sure, for it to have
been Impossible for mo to bo at the
Moore house at tho time my unhappy wife is supposed to have taken
her life. Thero is no doubt about
your believing this?" he demanded
with sudden haughtiness, oa, rising
to his feet, he confronted us ln all
the prltlo of his exceptionally liund-
somo person.
"We wish to believe It," assented
tlio coroner, rising In his turn.
"Thnt our belief may becomo certainty, will you let us know, the instant you recall the namo of the
man you talked with at tho cemetery gate? Ills testimony, fur more
than unv word of vours, will settle
this question which otherwise luajr
provo a vexed ono."
Mr. Jeffrey's hnnd went up to hie
head. Wus he acting a part or did
ho really forget just what it was for
his own bost welfaro to remember?
If lio hod forgotten, it argued that
ho was In n state of greater disturbance on that night than would naturally bo occasioned by a mere lover's quarrel with his wifo.
Did the samo thought strike my
companion? I can not suy; I can
only givo you bis next words.
"You. havo said that your wife
woultl not be likely to end her lifo
In presence of nny ono but yourself.
Yet you 'must see that somo ono
Was with her. I low do you propose
to reconcilo your assertions with a
fact so undoniablc?"
"I. cam not reconcile tliem. It
would madden mo to try. If I
thought any one was with her at
thnt moment—"
"Well?"
Mr. Jeffrey's eyes fell; and a.
startling change came over him.
Hut bnfuro either of us could make
out just what this ennnge betokened
ho recovered bis aspect of fixed melancholy and quietly remarked:
"It Is dreadful to think of her
standing there nlone, aiming a pistol  ut  her  young,   passionate heart;

Evidently be did not mean to admit the possibility of the pistol having boon fired by any other hand
but her own. This the coroner noted. Bowing with tho respect he
showed evory man beforo a jury had

CHAPTER XI.
Tha dnys of my obscurity were over. Henceforth, I was regarded as a
decided factor in this case—a case
which from this timo on, assumed
another aspect both at headquarters
and In tho minds of peoplo at large.
The reporters, whom wo had hitherto managed to hold in check, now
overflowed both the coroner's office
and polico headquarters, and articles
appeared in all the daily papers with
Just onough suggestion in them to
fire tho public mind and mako me,
for one, anticipate an Immediate
word from Mr. Jeffrey .coJculnlmJ tn
e.-iLuoiisii tno anbi he had failed to
mako out on the day wo talked with
him. But no such word came. His
memory still played him fulso, and
no alternative wus left but to pursuo
the official inquiry In tho line suggested by tho interview just recounted.
No proceeding In which I had over
been engaged Interested me as did
this Inquest. In tlio first place, tho
spectators were of a very different
character from the ordinary. As I
wormod myself along to tho seat accorded to such witnesses as mysolf,
I brushod by men of tho very highest
station and a few of tho lowest; and
bent my hend moro than once in response to tho inquiring gaze of somo
fashionable lady who nover bo-
fore, I warrant, had found
herself in such a scene. By
tho time I rcachod my placo all the
others wero seated and tho coroner
rapped for order.
I was first to take the stand. Whnt
I said lias nlready been fully amplified in tho foregoing pages. Of course,
my evidence was confined to facts,
but somo of these fuels wero new to
most of tho persons there. It was
evident that n considurablo effect was
produced by them, not only on tho
spectators, but upon the witnesses
tlnntiselws. For instunco, it was tho
first time thnt tlio mnrks on the
mnulel-sliolf bud been hoard of outside the major's officii, or tbo story
told us to mnko lt oviitent that Mrs. I
Joffrey could not havo been alono in
the houso nt the timo of hor death.
A photograph bail been taken of
those marks, and my Identification
of I his photograph closed my testimony.
As I roturnod to,my scat T stole |
a look toward a certain cornor where,
with faco bent down upon his bands,
Francis Jeffroy sat between Uncla
David and the hoavily-veilod figure ol
Mlsi Tuttle. Had there dawned upon him as my testimony was given
any suspicion of tho trick by which
he held been proved responsible for
those mnrks? It was impossible to
toll. From tho way Miss Tuttle's
hoad was turned toward him, on.
might Judgo him to bo laboring under an emotion of no ordinary character, though ho sat like a status
and hardly seemed to realize how
many eyes wero at that momont riveted upon his face.
I was followed by other detectlvos
who had boon present at tho timo
and who corroborated my statement
as to tha appearance of this unhappy woman and tbo way the pistol
had been tied to hor arm. Thon the
doctor who had acted under tho coroner was called. After a long and
no doubt loomed description of tho
bullet wound which had ended tho
life of this unhappy lady,—a wound
which he Insisted, with a marked
display of learning, must have made
that end Instantaneous or at least
too immodiato for hor to movo foot
or hand after it,—lie waa asked if
tho body showed uny other mark of
violence.
To this he repliod:
"There was a minute, wound at the
base of ono of her fingers, tho one
which is popularly culled the wedding finger."
This statement mndo all the women piosont staro with renowed interest; nor was lt altogether without
point for tho mon, especially when
tho doctor went on to say:
"The hands were entirely without
rings. As Mrs. Jeffroy had been
married with a ring, I noticed their
absence."
"Was this wound which you characterize as minute a recent one?"
"It had bled a little. It was an
abrasion such as would bo made lf
tho ring sho usually wore thero had
been drawn off with a jork. That
was tho Impression I received from
Its appearance. I do not state that
it was so made."
A little thrill which went ovor tho
audience at tho picture this ovoked
communicated itself to Miss Tuttle,
who trembled violently. It even produced a slight display of emotion in
Mr. Jeftrey, whose hand shook where
he pressed lt against his forehead.
But neither uttered a sound, nor
looked up whon tho next witness was
Summoned.
This witness proved to be Loretta,
Who, on honrlng her name called,
evinced great reluctance to come forward. But after two or threo words
uttered in _hor. car by the friendly
Jinny, who had boon given a seat
next her, she stepped Into tho place
assigned her with a suddenly assumed air of gioat. boldness, which sat
upon her with scant grace. She had
need of all tho boldness nt hor command, for the eyes of ail In the reom
wore flxod on her, with the exception
of the two persons most interested
In her testimony.   Scrutiny   of   any
kind dkl not nppo_tr to ho occeptaoie
to her, if one could only road the
trepidation visible in tho short, quick
upheavals of the broad collar which
covered her uneasy breast. Was this
shrinking on her part due to natural
timidity, or bad she failings to
avow which, while not vitiating- her
testimony, would certainly cntise her
fchnii-e in the presence of so many
men and women? I was not able to
decide this question imrui-ditttoiv; for
after tho coroner had clicted her
name and tlio position sho held in
Mr. Jeffrey's household he asked
whether her duties took her into
Mrs. Jeffrey's room; upon her replying that tbey did, he further inquired if sho know lira. Jeffrey's rings,
and could say whether thev were all
lo be found on that ludy's toilet-
table after the police came in with
news of her .death. The answer was
decisive. They were all there; her
lings and all the otlier ornaments
she was In tlio daily hubit of wearing, with the exception of her watch.

Miss Jennie Burrows, Rlgault, Que.,
soys: "I write to thank you for the
wonderful benefit your Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have done mo. I am npw
22 years of age, but from the time I
was fourteen I did not enjoy good
health. A couple of years ago, while
attending school I grew worse, and
tho Sisters in charge called ln a doctor. After treating me for some
time, without any improvement, he
told me that I must discontinue my
studies. When I got home I was
sent to Caledonia Springs. Tho first
month I was there it seemed to help
me, but, like nil the medicine I had
taken, the help was only temporary,
and I relapsed into my tormer condition. 1 grew so pale and wax-like
that strangers called me the wax figure. My heart would beat so violently that I could hoar the noise lt
made. I was so weak I could not
walk a block without support, or
without resting two or three times.
My hoad would sometimes ache so
violently as to nlmost drive me wil J,
and at other time I would grow bo
dizzy that I con!., not stand. All
this time I was taking treatment,
but all tho time was getting worse
and worse, and I hardly hoped ever
to be better again. At this time I
read in a newspaper of a somewhat
similar caso cured by the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, nnd I determined to try them. By the time I had
used a half dozen boxes I had Improved a great deal. From that on,
week b.v week, I gained in health and
strength, until by the time I had
used eleven boxes I was enjoying
better health than I had done for
years. I am now well and strong,
nd thank God for the blessing of
good health your wonderful Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have conferred upon
mo. I would strongly advise every
weak and ailing girl who reads this
to loso no time In taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured Miss

"Were   you   there   when   sho first

bouse?"
"I was, sir."
"How did she look and act that

ono minute, and so frightened tbe

running up the steps and so struck
with sileaco the minute sho got into

queer one till some one whispered in
my ear* that she waa suffering from a
dreadful shock; that ill-luck had attended her marriugc and much more
about what lind happened from time

"And you believed what was told
you?"
"Believed?"
"Believed it well enough to keep a
watch on your young mistress to seo
if sho were happy or not?"
"Oh, sirl"
"It was but natural," the coroner
suavely observed. "Every ono felt
Interested in this marriage. You
watched her of courso. Now what
was the result? Did you consider
her well and happy?"
The girl's voice sank and she cast
a glance at her master which he did
not lift his bead to meet.
"I did not think her happy. She
laughed and sang and was ahvnys in
and out of tho rooms liko a butterfly,
but she did not wear a happy look,

seated with Mr. Jeffrey alone. Then
I hav» seen her flush in a way to

Tio defiance with which this waa

nil.llt have been an unimportant ad-

"Mrs. Jeffrey's sister? Yes, sir."
The menace was gone from the voice
now, but no one could forget that it
had been there.
1'Miss Tuttle lived In the house
with her sister, did sho not?"
"Yes, sir; till that sister died and
was buried; then sho went away."
The coroner did not pursue this
topic, preferring to return to the
former one.
"So you say that Mrs. Jeffrey
showed uneasiness ever since her
wodding day. Can you give me any
instance of this; mention, I mean,
any conversations overhe/td by you
which would show us Juy_ i.

That was all I heard, sir. But what
made me remember his words was
that sho was dressed lor some afternoon reception and looked so charming and so—and so, as If she ought

"Just so. Now, when was this?
How long before her death?"
"Oh, a week or so. It waa very
soon after tho wedding day."
"And did matters scorn to Improve

thoro was something on hor mind,
something Which sho triod to laugh

"What do you  mean by that, Loretta; that   he lost patience with her

kO you realize how much- money is made from poultry raising ? Do you know that many owners
of Chatham Incubators;are earning $320 a year and not devoting more than a half-an-hour a
day to it? If you owned ta Chatham Incubator your wife or your daughter could attend to it
and add at least $320 to the profits of your farm. That is more than many another department of
your farm produces which occupies a lot of your time and represents considerable money invested.
Let us figure it out.
A No. 2 Chatham Incubator holds from 100 to 120 eggs. Though an average hatch is eighty
per cent, we will deduct some to pay for oil and feed and make up for accidents. Say 80 chicks out
of 120 eggs. That is a fiair average. Suppose you only take off eight hatches in a year. That is
640 chickens.   They are worth about a dollar a pair.   That is $320.00 profit from a
'    CHATHAM INCUBATOR
on which you have not as yet been asked to pay one cent.
There is always a big demand for poultry. It is increasing every year. The value of the
poultry exported to Great Britain in 1896 was $18,992 ; in 1902 it had increased to $239,986. One
English poultry house say they could handle 36,000 chickens a week. The increase in the
Canadian demand has been even greater, poultry exporting firms getting such good prices here
that they didn't need to ship them. The demand for poultry is ever increasing. That means
continued good prices for poultry raisers.
You cannot make money in the poultry business without an Incubator and Brooder. If you

LETTERS FROM CHATHAM INCUBATOR USERS
I placed four dozen eggs under four hens, nnd must -ny that
tho first hen brought out lien chicks out ot the IS eggs, but the
other throe nover raised a chicken. Now then I took food care
of the four hone, had thom all in ono building, and mil lilnu to
molosb thein. I sot them about a week apart. It cortalnly
nonius strange that the one lion would ilo .0 well and the other
threo do not hliij; at all. I havo since usod a Chatham Incubator
and met with good success, hatching V.1 chirks out of 88 eggs.   I
Erofor ft to tho hone, and all further eggs I buy, no matter how
l|.li prlcod, I shall uso tho Incubator In preference to bens.
Yoursulncoroly, K. A, Ham. Castleton, Ont.
The No. '2 Inruli itur I purchased rn,m **oa 1",1!* fall has given
perfoct satisfaction. The first hatch I got 90 por cent, strong
healthy chicks, nnd we put lu two tnrkoy eggs JuBt one woek before we did tho hen eggs, and both the turkey eggs hatched.
Yours truly,       David Wi_i.hu, Falconbrldgo, Oct
I havo recolred tho brooder and find everything satisfactory.
My chicks came out May 1st and lam woll satisfied. The "niy
thing I regret Is that I did not have a larger niaohlno. I set Hi

sufficient profits to pay for this incubator several time* over.
There is no string to this offer. It is open and

in democracy, who Is ever on the side
of the masses against the classes,
who hates with all the strength of
a strong nature all forms of injustice
and oppression, who never seeks and
never avoids a light, but who, once
engaged, will struggle on to final victory with a tenacious courage that
no obstacles can crush and no difficulties subdue. His is the the temperament of the pioneer; his the disposition that snatches victory out of
the jaws of defeat. Withal, he has a
level-headed canniness that seldom
permits him to be placed in a false
position, a shrewdness that foresees
contingencies and avoids errors.
Frank Oliver is no Don Quixote to
run a-tilt into windmills, or to batter
his head against stone walls. Caution,
equally with courage, are his outstanding characteristics, both in his
personal anl political career.
As  an  editor,  Mr.  Oliver  exhibits
FRANK OLIVER.  M.P.
Editor  and  Proprietor  of  the
Edmonton  Bulletin
Newspapermen, like lawyers, have
a faculty of drifting into public and
parliamentary life, and -those of the
West are no exception to the rule.
Its number of parliamentary representatives Is few, but Included therein are at least two men who reflect
equal lustre on journalism and on
politics—Walter Scott, M.P., and
Frank Oliver, M.P. A sketch of the
former has already appeared In those
columns and it now remains .to say
somewhat of the member for Edmonton and the editor and proprietor of
the I-dmenlon Bulletin.
At the outset one is confronted
with a serious, an almost Insuperable
difficulty.   Frank Oliver is ono of the
' most reticent of men in anything thai.
'Concerns himself. That Is, on paper.
In personal conversation few men are
more frank and outspoken, and he
will give his views on any subject
requested with blunt directness. But
he is the despair of reporters and interviewers, who, as often as uot. find
themselves the victims, rather than
the operators, of their modern journalistic methods. Mr. Oliver can,
whenever he desires, be as uncommunicative as a clam, llis bushy
brows   will  lower  threateningly  over
- his piercing grey eyes, and then, lf
lie is wise, his Interlocutor will grow
wary. From submitting patiently to
cross-examination the Edmonton editor-politician will become restive—
sometimes combutive—in his replies,
and turn the tables upon his tormentor. And, while Mr. Oliver recognizes
the right of the public to know his
views on questions of public policy,
he altegether, and properly, denies lis
right to an Impertinent prying into
personal matters, and woe betide the
reporter with the hardihood und temerity to take counsel of his own pie-
sumption rather than of the character
of the person he desires to interview.
Discomfiture, swift and certain, will
be his assured portion.
The Parliamentary Guide states, in
a four-Hue skeleton biography that
constitutes almost the only printed
record of Mr. Oliver's career, that he
was born in Peel County, Ontario, In
1853, and is, therefore, In his fifty-
first year. He came to the Northwest at an early age, and followed his
trade as a printer's journeyman,
working on the Free Press and other
Winnipeg papers. Prior to 1SS8 he
went to the Territories aud in that
year was elected a member of the
Territorial Assembly, the governing
body which, with wider powers, sue
ceeded the Northwest Council. In
the general election of 1S9C he resigned from the assembly to contest the
Dominion seat of Alberta as an In
dependent, and was returned by -a
majority of nearly 800. At the election of 1900 he won over two oppos
ing candidates by about the same
plurality, while on November 3 last,
at the general election, his majority
over his opponent was In the neighborhood of 3,000, and was one of the
largest, If not the largest, In the Dominion. This brief record of his public
career tells its own story, 6t the
growing strength of Mr. Oliver's popularity.
In the Territorial Assembly Mr.
Oliver was, In the old days, ono of
the most forceful and striking figures,
and, In the wider arena of Dominion
politics, his downright, upright, forthright, fearless statements of policies
nnd Issues have won for him national
fame. He -was returned to the Can
adiun Commons us an Independent,
but the passage of time hus found
hlin working ln more and more complete harmony with the Liberal party.
In the Ottawa House there are ninny
men with greater grace of expression
and of more attractive manners as
a speaker, but few are listened to
with more attention than tie plain-
spoken member from tho Western
prairies. He has the faculty of going straight to the gist and heart of
things when he discusses them. There
Is no indirection, no indecision, no
beating about the hush, in what he
has to say. Mr. Oliver has thought
on what he proposes to discuss, hns
reached definite conclusions there-
anent, and in speaking has no other
purpose than to convey, In as few
words as may be, and with the utmost possible lucidity and straightforwardness, what thoso conclusions
are. After he Is through speaking no
one has any doubt of whnt Mr. Oil
ver's opinions are, nor that he will
defend those eplnlons with courage
and tenacity. He believes that words
were given to express, and not, to conceal, thought, and acts and talks accordingly. If he has not yet come to
fixed conclusions regarding any subject of public interest, he is no whit
ashamed to state the fact and never
pretends a knowledge he does not
possess, or to hide It under an as
sumption of oracular wisdom, or ho
fog a plain Issue by a cloud of mys
tlfylrig claptrap. For the rest he is
a plain citizen, a man who believes

the same characteristics of energy as
he has shown in public life. He took
hold of the Bulletin when Edmonton
was the most northerly of all Canadian towns," was practically isolated
from the rest of the Dominion, and
known principally as a convenient
starting point for the journey into
the hunting and trapping regions of
Athabasca, the Peace and the Canadian sub-arctlcs. The Bulletin at
that time reflected the present position and the future promise of the
town. It was the day of small things
ln Western journalism, and the Bulletin was no exception to the rule.
Its news was fragmentary and ill
arranged and its presswork and
make-up no better than that of dozens
of other papers ln Western Canada.
But, even in those early days, its
editorial utterances wore impressive
In their influence, nntl It became a
proverb that what, the Bulletin said
would soon he what the Territories
thought. And, ns time went on, every
department of the Bulletin showed
Ihe growth and development of the
country In which it circulated, and
of the wider-reaching Influence of the
man who controlled its destinies. It
grew bigger; it grew better. From
n weakly weekly lt developed Into

In the case of the city that, is destined to be the one second ln Importance

It hns kept Itself abreast of Its op-
nortunitles and the development of
the West. When one considers how
rapid hns been that development, how
large and ever-widening tho opportunity, antl how adequately nnd with
what enterprise the Bulletin hns dls-
chnrged its duties In these particulars, none can deny that its editor
Is one of Western Canada's most, able
journalists, as ho Is undoubtedly one
of Its foremost public men.

grandmother's dny, with their seemingly Imperishable ijunllllos, but ns n mutter of fact silks mu much bettor now
thnn Ibey were Leforc. Tho nneostrul
silks, which were woven on hunt
looms, were never of an oven texturi.,
wheroas with modern machinery the
Inst Inch of a hundred yurd piece
comes out exactly the same us the llrst
one. The art of dyeing, too, bus been
brought to a state of perfection never
known before, nnd coiumunlcutlou between tbe silk workers of tbe world Is
so rapid tbat a discovery mnde by one
ls soon known to all the others. The
reason so many modern silks do not
wear Is because they nre ndultcrated
to meet the demand for cheapness,
their wearing ability being In exnet
proportion to tl_e amount of Bilk they
contuln. Cheap silks are largely mnde
up of dye nnd dressing, A good qunll-
ty of silk Is dellncd by manufacturers
as ono which litis not more than four
ounces of weighting to the pound,
and none have less thnn two ounces.
Most of the wrlgliting Is put ln during
the dyeing process, nnd when n mnn-
ufneturer sends a quantity of silk to
the dyer lie snys thut he wnnts It to
come bnck weighing so much, accord-
Ing to the uuiount of adulteration required.

acid, which would otherwise cause
rheumatism or stone In the bladder.
Digestion, assimilation and tho removing of waste matter are carried
out without pain or discomfort,   and
there Is no foothold for contagious or
other disease.
There ls no other preparation possessing this unique and combined action, and none which can possibly
reach Buch complicated diseases as

Free School Books.
The following is the text of the
resolution adopted by the Trades and
Labor Council of this city regarding
the supply of free school books by the
Provincial government, which was
submitted to the city council at its
last meeting:
"Wheieas, This Trades and Labor
Counci-fpasscd a resolution on August 7tljf,i 1904, approving thle scheme
of government printing, as applied to
school books, and whereas, copies of
this resolution were sent to organised
bodies in British Columbia, and favorable replies were received from
all, thereby constituting practically a
plebiscite of the working people of
the province, and whereas, also copies
of the same resolution were sent to
all school boards in the province and
to the Provincial government, in
neither case getting any reply, and
whereas Ihis Trades and Labor Council notes withl regret that a convention of school trustees recently met
in Vancouver to consider amendments to the Educational act, and
utterly failed to take cognisance of
this most important proposition in
the interests of the working people;
"Be it therefore.resolved, That this
council again petition the government
to undertake the printing of school
books (the same to be supplied to the
pupils free or at cost), or appoint a
commission immediately to go into
the whble question."

The Demi-Train  Imperative for Afternoon.
In spite of all conjectures and doubts
about the length of skirts for spring
wear, the decree has been fixed by
the French makers of celebrity that
short skirts are for those who wear
forenoon tailor-made, simple costumes, which, however smart, have no
relation to afternoon dress. Women
who walk when shopping, or those
who drive, are in the best form when
seen in short forenoon costumes. On
the other hand, the long demi-train
skirt is again de rigueur, for the afternoon, and carriagcless women must
take to holding them up if they
choose to be dressed a la mode at
afternoon affairs. This has been more
or less the custom this winter, although a great preponderance of
short-skirted velvet costumes and
very handsome cloth ones have been
constantly met and worn by those
who were driving as well as walking
More and more i3 individuality breaking through fashionable dress rules

It is well established that this sea
son's lingerie gowns are to be elab
orated with handwork and lace, and
that English eyelet and ajour work
are combined in the majority of the
frocks, and as much detail accom
panies the completion oi even tin
simplest of these attract.vc~crea.ions
these few hints the average woman
will probably find useful. First of all,
almost all the gowns of handkerchief
linen or Frenchl batiste (the two pre
ferred materials for altcrnoon and
evening wear) fasten at the back, and
arc in princess effect; the buttons
used are small lace ones that cither
show at one and one-half inch distances or, if preferred, are concealed
under a fly fastening, the same space
kept between. The collar is part of
the gown, also fastening at back, and
is usually, as are the cuifs, made of
joined rows oi insertion to match the
lace with which thfe dress is trimmed
and tucked or embroidered bands of
the material. If real Valenciennes
lace is too expensive, German Valenciennes in real lace color is very effective, as the mesh is open and
heavier than that of the French or
Italian laces. The width is as tlie person chooses, one inch and one-quar-
ler, however, seems to be more popular than the narrower kind used last
season. Narrow Irish lace, which
must be real when used at all, has
eome to the fore end and vies with
Valenciennes for smartness. In the
evening gowns princess models will
he used almost exclusively, for afternoon gowns the princess effect will
be given the bodice and skirt attached
by lace or a narrow band at the waist
line. The buttonholes arc worked in
thb material; should strips of lace
meet at the back fastening, handworked loops are used. The seams
should he French felled; that is, lirst
sewed as near the edges as possible
nn Ihc outside, then turned over and
'earned on the inside in the ordinary
way. The slip to wear beneath is
princess, whefhler of silk or lawn. Jf
llie effect of transparency is desired,
and it is the prettiest when such sheer
fabrics are employed, the neck is low
antl rounded and like the arinhole
finished with very narrow hem. Lace
and insertion edge both, a beading between of any width desired, run withl
libbon tying in a bow at front and
pulled to the proper tightness before
llie ends are secured at the back and
ewed. In this the fastening is at
!>ack with a fly, as two sets of buttons
would look badly, and at front some
narrow lace is either inserted in a
graceful design or else some medallions of various sizes. Occasionally,
.'lotted while Swiss muslin is used for
the. e slips, but plain material is pref-
tiable and it is well to have two or
three in different colors with which
to clikmge, and for these American
batiste shows remarkably delicate
shades in great variety.
French  organdie  is also pretty for
lingerie    frocks    for    debutantes   or
younger girls, rivalling Persian lawn,
nainsook and Swiss muslin which
heretofore have been so exclusively
used for them.
Separate Waists.
Separate white linen or lawn waists
are filling up the need of extra waists
to white suits quite as much as they
have done for wear with several colored skirts, when of quite other materials. So many of the skirts of white
suits are made without trimmings
that one may choose waists from the
great variety now offered that will go
with them perfectly. The same holds
good with reference to lace-trimmed
skirts and lace-trimmed waists, as it
is no longer imperative to be confined
to one style of lace in the trimming
of both suit pieces.
Swiss Muslin Waists and Skirts.
Swiss muslin laciytrimmed waist
and skirt-suits are particularly elaborate this season, and are greatly favored by maters when fitting out their
young daughters. THey continue to
be the prettiest of at-home-evening
dress, and are sure to be to the fore
prominently as summer afternoon
toilets.

During the past few months the
Provincial government has been severely criticised for the inquisitorial
character of the assessment schedules
and wc hhvc heard a great deal about
an effort being made to tax every
thing which could be regarded as
property, tangible or intangible, in
sight or out of sight. We pointed
out on one or two occasions that assessment schedules relating especially
to personal property must necessarily
be inquisitorial and the province in
this had more or less followed the
example of other countries or states
where personality is taxed. We have
been favored with a number of reports of revenue commissions and tax
laws in states of the Union antl line!
thlat almost without exception the detailed information required to be
given to the assessor is very extended
and minute. In the state of Colorado, for instance, there arc forty-one
main heads under wWich assessment
comes, and each head is sub-divided
The directions in the act are most
voluminous touching the assessment
of every class of property. The act itself, with index, makes 100 pages
The state of Illinois llassifies the personal property of thle inhabitants un
der thirty-three different heads, each
head being subdivided often numer
ously. The revenue code is more elaborate than anything wliich has been
enacted in, or is proposed for, British
Columbia. Others of the states have
still- more elaborate classification of
information to be supplied by the
people to thle assessor. We refer to
this matter because an impression has
been sought to be conveyed that
British Columbia in the character of
the asessment schedules is unusual
and unnecessarily inquisitorial, lt
does not even compare in that respect
with many other parts of the world,

The lamentable weakness of the
opposition in the local legislature
was very much im evidence during
the debate on the School Bill. This
measure was one which might be
expected to give rise to some really
strong opposition; to bring out any
originality of idea, which was possessed by J. A. McDonald and his
followers, to put the government in
jeopardy, if any bill could. Nothing
of this kind, however, took place.
There was some scattered firing from
the oppositon ranks, some badly digested financial arguments, and "le

ion parliament for Hants Co. of this
