A Very Slim Attendance of
Citizens.
SUBJECTS OF DISCUSSION
Overcrowding of the School���Control of
School to be Transferred to
the Oity.
The raeoting oonvened for 11 n. m.,
at the sohool house yesterday assembled at the appointed hour. There
were preseut the Miner's representative and a dog. These not forming a
quorum, proceedings were ndj rained ;
the flog left iu disgust and the Miner
waited patiently until nearly mid-day
by whioh time about 18 faithful citizens
had been rounded up.
Of those present not more than three
had children who attended the sohool
It wis pretty treely remarked that,
though everybody has been shouting
abroad how defective the Nelsou
schools are, yet they showed thoir
apathy by net taking the trouble to attend a meeting at which their grievances could bo freoly aired and moreover given attention to.
One voter went so fat as to suggest
that the meeting should be held at f>
p. 111. and that tho Nelson substitute
for a free Inn oh counter, namely an af-
terunn tea, should be added as au attraction. The school would then lie
overcrowded with those who endeavor
to economize by putting themselves
outside as much ton and cake, (free!)
as v.ill serve f"r their dinner. But
tins FTUIRStion v.as not seriously consider; u.'
'ihe proceedings began by Mr.
Sherwood being elected, ill spite of his
pretests, chairman. Mr. Soady. as
secretary then read the trustees' report
Iot the year. The miscellaneous expenses for the year amounted to$601.43
and the amount received was (619,39
which left a balance ut 117.84 The
trustees reported that diving the past
year the school facilities had been ex-
eedingly inadequate. They had made
Strenuous efforts to have n good central school building erected and a
Hi(.'h School established with the
discouraging result Unit when the
sohool re-opeiiR only so van rooms will
bo available for use instead of 10,
which is tho number lhat is absolutely
necessary for the present number of
pupils. At present thero is 110 probability (if a high school lieing established here. In tbe month of February accommodation for 400 pupils for
the opening of the .school iu August
was asked for and also desks for the
new rooms. The rooms will not bo
ready uutil November, there will be
no desks, and only accommodation for
200 pupils. An appropriation of $600
was asked for incidental expenses. Ouly
$1)00 was received out Of which $360 was
spent for fnel alone. Before the last session opened tbe trustees applied to the
Dopiirtnictnt of Education nnd to Mr.
Hume for an appropriation large
enough to finish the sohool building
and for additional teachers for 1S00.
Only enengli has been appropriated to
furnish the rooms iu the new building.
The Board asked to have the new
rooms ready for occupation by Mny 1.
Nothing was done; trot the superintendent of education directed that the
owicrowding bo relieved hy taking
half the pupils of th" two junior forms
in Ihe forenoon and hall' in the afternoon, One room ha? been on half time
for three months during the present
school vear.
Owing to this unsatisfactory state
nf affairs, the trustees asked tho Oity
to leanest the Government to give the
Oity Ihe control of the schools, feeling
sure that tho citizens were fully alive
to the importance of having good
schools. Moreover tho City wonld benefit financially by so doing. They
would receive a per capita tax on
every adult male of $���), aud ��10 per pupil computed on the avorago attendance of pupils. The revenue computed
on this basis would bo neaily $10,000
nor annum.
The present salaries of teachers
amount to' $3,400 and incidental expenses so $450. If the City had the
control ot the schools in their own
hands they could givo the citizens
what they demanded in the matter nf
education. Citizens are now taxed for
good schools, ure grudgingly given an
insufficient sum and told to mako tho
best of it.    Tho report was adopted.
Mr. Burns shortly explained the education act. Schools aro divided into two
olasses, viz! oity and rural schools. City
schools are controlled hy n board of six
trustees and n chairman who nro elected by the citizens, but this part of the
act only applies to Victoria nnd Van-
eouver.Now Westminster and Nanaimo.
The Act would have to bo amended
so that Nelson would be iucluded with
those cities, The sole control of the
schools would then rest in the committee subject only to the inspection
of tho government school inspector.
The chairman then pointed out that
it was necessaiy to appoint a new
irutem in the p'aufl of Dr. Arthur, Hev
!eral gentlemen were nominated, but it
hnv ing been announced by Br. Hall
I ihat Dr, Arthur was willing to serve
��� another term, the nominees retired and
;Dr. Arthur was elected by uoolama-
tion.
Dr. Hall speaking for tho trustees
said thnt letter after letter bad been
written to the proper ministers calling attention to the school grievanoe.
Home letters were answered, others
were not oven acknowledged. They
were muoh surprised when they Interviewed the Attorney-General on the
subject and were informed by him that
he bud never heard a word about the
trouble. He had howi vor promised
them his support.
It was resolved on the motion of Mr.
Tamblyn that the schools should be
under the control of t.'io Oity and that
the act should bo amended so as to allow this to bo done; also that tho
tiustees should take what steps they
think fit towards effecting that purpose.
Dr. Hall then informed the meeting that owing to overcrowding tho
trustees had deemed it wise to closo
tho schools for a timo nnd that for
that period tho government had refused to pay tho teachers tbeir full salary.
On motion of Mr. Christie it was
r?solved tbat tho action of the trustees
in dosing the schools be endorsed nnd
that the department of education he
requested to pay tbe teachers their full
salaries for the period during which
the schools were closed
Dr. Hall said the  evil of overcrowd
iug   would   still   coutiuuo.    The.y re.
quired ten rooms nod hnd only   sever.
Something must be doue.
On the motion of Mr. Annable it
was resolved that the attention of the
government he called to the sadly overcrowded state of the Nelson school nnd
thnt proper arrangements be forthwith
mnde for the better accommodation
of the pupils. The meeting then adjourned.
ANTI-STRIKE BILL

ROOSEVELT'S   ROUGH    RIDERS.
Attend a Rouuku Held in Los Vegas,
New Mexico.
Los Vegas, N. M., June 24.���Governor Roosevelt arrived here at 1:30
o'clock this afternoon to attend the
first nnuunl reunion of his Rough
Riders regiment. Ho was greeted as
he stepped off the platform of the
rear car, with tremendous cheering
from 5,000 people aroond the depot.
The noted Now Yorker was clad in
his Rough itider uniform and was
easily recognizee Oy tne cr;.vvd.
He was almost lifted bodily from
bis feet by the press of persons anxious to grasp his baud,and as he and his
party made their way slowly the
tu lbe Canadian hotel, the crowds
surged alter bun. Aa be walked down
the depot sidewalk a line ot Rongh
Riders veterans saluted and joined in
the ovation. When Colonel Roosevelt
came opposite the line of Rough Rid-
eis ne commenced shaking hands with
the troopers aim gave them a most
cordial greeting.
He remarked : "I am mighty glad
to seo you boys and to be able to be
wilh you. 1 would not have missed
this for anything. If tho re-union had
been held in Alaska I would have gone
there to see you.
The Hough Riders cheered him continuously and were apparently equally
pleased to greet him.
STILL MORE DIFFICULTIES.
Alaskan Boundary Causing Trouble
Botween   Nations.
Washington, Juuo 24.��� Tbe memorandum handed to Ambassador Choato
at London yesterday concerning the
modus for a temporary arrangement up.
on the Alaskan boundary, wns only another step in the negotiations. A
modification has been requested by the
British Governmeut which the Uuitcd
Slates will havo to consider.
The negotiations nnd progressed so
favorably up to the time ot the last
memorandum that the belief was expressed that an agreement would soon
be reached. The points of difference
between tl.e governments are not made
public, but tbo modifications requested ny the British govern men t. does not
meet with favor by those who are conducting the negotiations lor the United Slates, as the last proposition submitted by this government was believed to contain all essential concesious
and to he fair in c\ery respect to the
Canadians and tho British Governmeut.
A Lively Session of the German Reichstag.
SOCIALISTIC   SPEECHES
All  Parties  Except    the   Conservatives
Attack It���Herr Lieber Called
to Order.
Berlin, Juue 24.���The attention of
tho Reichstag last week was chiefly
devoted to the Anti-Strike Bill, nud
the public showed more interest in this
lhau in any other measure of the ses-
siou. The galleries were filled for the
first time and tho members attended
better. The press, also devoted a vast
amount of spaoe to the measure and
the agitation against it became more
active during the few days preceding
the debate. This was not coufiued to
the socialists, ns the Evangelical Catholic, and latnr unions and the central
committee of Christain miners pronounced against the bill. Even the
committee of trade ot Berlin, a semi-
court institution petitioned against
the measure and asked ull other such
couris and organizations of laborers
and employers to do the same. It wns
clear from the beginning of debate
that the government's case was lost.
The ministers and conservatives never
showed a ray of confidence. Their
whole attitude was apologetic. On tho
other hand, the attacks which wore
uncommonly sharp, oame from all
parties except the conservatives.
The Centrist leader, Herr Lieber,
was called to order for a sharp arraign-
mant of the conrts i'or "monstrous decisions" against laborers, and "mildness towards employers." Tho National Liberal leader Herr Hasser-
mann, complained that the measure
pleased nobody but social democrats,
giving them excellent material for
agitation.
Herr Babet tho socialist leader,
spoke for hours, attacking the bill
with great sarcasm and vigor. The
points made by the more moderate opponents of tho measure were that it is
unnecessary class legislation and that
the present lavs ure adequate and
reach all cases ot s nke.rs maltreating
others. Thev demanded instead of the
harsh punishment provided by the hill,
full freedom for labor unions to form
coalitions with each other. The ro-
fusa] of the Reichstag Thursday, by
au immense majority, to refer the
bill to a committee is equivalent to
the death of the measure.
TO RAISE 50,000 MEN.
STREET   OAK     BTRIKfl   ENDED.
Street Car Company nnd Strikers
Come to an Agreomeut.
Cleveland, Ohio, Juue 24.���An
agreement between tho big Consolidated Street Railway Co., und its
striking employes wns reached at 0
o'clock tonight and it is probably that
cars will he running as usual on the
lines of the company tomorrow morning.
The agreement provides for the
hearing of grievances and a resort to
arbitration in ease the men and Ihe
comnany cannot agree, and it also
provides for tho reinstatement of practically HO per cent of the old men at
once. Tho remainder except those who
have born guilty ot violence being
placed on the waiting list. President
Everett said curs would he started in
tho morning.
Washington. June 24.��� War Department officials pieserve the strictest^ secrecy respecting tho number of additional troops to be sent to General Otis
aud the plans nf tbe administration
relative to suppression of the rebellion
iu Iho Philippines. The extent aud
activity ot preparations for recruiting
which now are being made, however.
afford substantial confirmation of the
'���cport that when the president nnd
Secretary of War Alger return thoy
will arrange for mustering in a far
greater nn.r.ber of recruits than 10,000
or i2,oo which Adjutant General Cor
bin now practically admits will be enlisted. Tonight a high officii 1 snys it
is probable the whole provisional nrmv
of 35,000 will be taken into service, if
that number of recruits can he obtain-
ul without resort to a general call and
apportionment aiming the stales. With
tins statement comes the liiformtion
that it now is tho administration's
Intention to send In General Otis an
aggregate of 50.000 troops wihcli will
give him the desired   30,000  for active
operations and leave 20,000 for garrison purposes. The president not only
hns been in constant communication
with tho war department, but has been
feeling the pulse of peoplo reLeved
from administration influences.
LIGHTNING   STRUCK    STEEPLE.
Goshen. N Y., June 24.���Lightning
struck the stono Steeple on the Pres-
hyterin church at thin place tonight
about 12 feet from the top. One thousand pounds of stone fell a distance of
1H5 feot down on the roof of tho ohurch
and crashod through into tho main
portion of Ihe edifice. Largo quanti
ties of wator rushed through the hole
in the roof. Tho building wus damaged to the extent of $5,000.

FOR THE RAILWAYS
WAITING FOR DREYFUS.
London, June 24.���The rattling of
swords in their soahbards grows more
pronounced, though tho war office refuses all information regarding the
Transvaal situation, aud declines to
confirm or deuy the reported circumstantial assertions of the closetings of
the Britih military leaders, or the
dispatch of this or that regiment to
Capetown. The ministers, however,
have beeu unable to successfully parry
the multitude of questions raised in
the House of Commons with the intention of getting some inkling of the
Government's intentions.
A reply of the parliamentary secre.
tary of the war office Mr. George
Wyndhara, yesterday evening, is considered portentously significant. He
wns questioned as to the truth of the
report that the British garrisons in
South Africa wore to be gradually increased to 40,000 men. Hnd the government wished to give a pacific answer with the view of allaying the anxiety here and at the Cape the question
offered ample opportunity, but Wynd-
hnm replied in two words:   "No sir. "
The truth is that whatever plans the
government has deoided on, the ministers regard it as impolitic to contradict reports, however, extravagant of
war like intentions, because of the
reverboratious. While it is not true
that Geueral Sir Redvers Buller has
already beon appoiuted to command,
he has been beard to remark in private conversation tbat he reserved himself for a "Go" at the Boers to repay
some old grudges.
The big Military Works Loan Bill
introduced in the House of Commons,
June 21, has caused some alarm among
tax payers, although it is admitted
that a portion of the expenditure is
absolutely necessitated by the increase
of the army.
The contrast of the proceedings iu
the House of Commons and ut The
Hague peace conference has also been
much commented upon, while a great
deal of dissatisfaction has been arous-
od by the intimation conveyed by tho
proposed fortifications of the harbors
that Great Britain cannot rely on her
navy to defend her coasts. Rear Admiral Lord Charles Beresford strongly
opposed the fortifications, taking the
same grounds as Captain Mahan, U. S.
N., tbat expenditure ought to be devoted to mobile instead of fixed defences, saving he thought that 'f Great
Britain was unable to attack her enemies at sea, tho empire would not last
long.
Tbo debate raised the question of
colonial contributions to the Imperial
defence. It is pointed out in official
circles that tho expenditure of the
United Kingdom on Imperial dofences
has beeu increasing of lato years by
leups and bounds, a large Dart going into tho pockets of colonial merchants, in payment for supplies to the
garrisons and squadrons, vet their
contributions are misorosoopi'o,
In connection with the proposed
barracks it is interesitng to note that
the war office officials havo been closely
inspecting tho Rowton houses with
the view of adopting the cubical system, Instead of the present barrack

Meeting   Held   at   Brest   By   tbo Socialists.
Brest, Juno 24.���Captain Dreyfus
will uot arrive here until Sunday evening at the earliest. This was the latest news that was circulated in Brest
on receipt of the announcement thnt
tbe cruiser Sfax had passed Madiera
yesterday. The populace continues to
maintain the calmest mood imaginable. Red posters displayed at various points heralded a meeting of the
Dreyfusites tonight in the hall De
Viniz, the biggest dancing hall in
Brest situated in the vicinity of the arsenal.
The demonstration wns organized hy
socialists and was attended hy twelve
hundred persons, the audience consisting mainly of socialists aud anarchists, together with a few   detectives.
The speakers among whom were
most of the socialists lenders addressed
the avdien^e from a balcony. They
aitacKod militarism and reaction. The
audience enthusiastically cheered all
references to Dreyfus. Zola, and Pio-
quart. A couple of individuals who
cried: "A Bas Dreyfus" were
promptly hustled out, but otherwise
the meeting was perfectly calm aud
the squBds of police who were stationed in the adjacent streets had absolutely nothing to do.
The speakers called upon their hoar-
ers to aBBoruble upon the arrival of
Dreyfus in order to defend liberty
and justice. The audience dispersed
with cries of "Vive Social revolution,''
"Vive Zola" and "Vive Picquat."
Some shouts of "Vivo anarchy. " were
heard.
The representatives of the Associated Press saw M. Cbisou leader of the
Brest socialists who said in the course
of his conversation "We intend to be
present at the landing of Dreyfus, but
we do not propose to make a demonstration. We shall be perfectly orderly
aud quiet unless the reactionists attempt to make a demonstratiou against
Dreyfus. Iu tbat case we shall do
fond the oause of liberty aud justice. "
This means that if tho anti-revis
ionisis attempt a demonstration tbere
will be broken heads in Brest wheu
Dreyfus is landed. The military au
thorities are still reticent as the arrangement made and it is evidently
their desire is to conceal the arrival of
the prisoner of Devil's Island until
he shall huve been safely removed to
Rennes, where tbere is more reason to
fear serious disorder than there is here.
M. Deloheau, who represents Brest
in the senate said he did not expect
any trouble upon Dreyfus' arrival unless a few hot hoaded individuals make
trouble.

Ottawa, June 24. -A bill of considerable importance will be taken np by
Mr. Blair at the next meeting ot the
railway committee. Its provisions
will deal with the building of telegraph aud telephone lines, publio
bridges and the operations aud control
of the railways. Perhaps the most important is that which refers to operating rules for railways.
It is provided that the railway committee of the privy counoil may make
rules and regulatious for all railways
within the jurisdiction of tbe Dominion parliament. These rules will supersede all previous ones. Such rules
will be subjeot to the approval of the
governor in council. Another provision in the bill is to give power to the
railway committee of the privy conn
cil to order railway companies to
erect aud maintain stations at given
points.
Tho bill also piovideB that anyone
destroying gates, fences or buildings of
a railway company, or entering a
train with the idea of defrauding the
company of fare, will be liable to
fine and imprisonment. Telegraph
and telephone companies, incorporated by aot of Parliaxr-em are empowered to break up or open any highway
subjeot to the jurisdiction of municipal council. Travel is not to be obstructed and a company iB not to needlessly destroy shade trees. Tbe surface
of a street must he restored to its former state. In case parliament shall
order at auy future time wires to be
placed underground, the oompanies
now entitled to carry them on tbeir
policies will not be able to recover
damages. In the case of companies
incorporated to construct railway and
geueral traffic bridges, no discrimination for transportation or running
privileges can be made against any
company anda the tolls will be eon-
trolled hy the governor in council.
Two years will be given for commencing such works and live years for
their completion.

SCHOOL REFORM.
The olosi jg ceremonies of the school
term ou   Friday were  much as   those
ceremonies are elsewhere and   always.
They consist of pleasant little speeches,
intended to  be  complimentary.    Mr.
Frew  made  a slight  departure   trom
the usual commonplaces,   and  perhaps
without intending   to ro so far raised
the question of our entire public school
system.    He   thinks    more  Canadian
geography  should   be    taught iu   our
sohools, whioh means that in his opinion the  system is oapable of  improvement.    In respect to this he is iu good
oompany, as the   more   reflecting  and
discerning   minds   of   the   day   have
reached the same   conclusion.    As   to
Canadian geography, the suggestion is
undoubtedly a good one.    In Scotland,
we are told, local geography is so much
taught that the pupils get the  impression Scotland   is the  finest country in
the world.    It is a  good impression tu
have  of  one's country.   The same  is
said of tbe Americans; but Mr.   Frew
might have gone further, for there the
pupils are  given   the impression   that
the United States is not only the   finest but the only country in the  world.
We do not want to go that far in Canada.    Our   boys   and   girls should   be
taught more of their own country, but j
not with the idea that  there are not
other countries.
This, however, is but a  very small
portion of the larger   question that   is
surely,   if   slowly,  pushing  itself   to
the front.    We require   to   take it up
in Nelson, as it is taken   up  iu  other
places, and the  little   ceremonial   the
other   day   suggests    that   Mr.   Frew
might with advantage take the lead in
agitating it.    Our   system   has grown
into an evil.    It is   patterned   on that
adopted in some of the New   England
States forty or fifty years ago. Ontario
was so wonderfully progressive that it
loug ago  outstripped   tho   New   England system, and    the other Provinces
are ambitious to imitate Ontario.   Our
too generous adaptation of   it   is  successful   in   only   one    direction,   the
complete repression   of   individuality.
Itjias developed into the apotheosis of
unification,as one clever critio expresses it.    The schools  ure alike, aud   the
teachers are alike; even   the pupils  of
one school are as muoh like the pupils
of another as  are the peas in one   pod
like the peas in another pod.   The system is like a huge piece of machinery,
turning   out   its   produot  strictly according to pattern.   That might not he
so bad if  tbe   product   were  satisfao
tory, but is it?   We are about to  ask
thu Legislature  to give  the  management of our school affairs into our own
control.   It would he a  blessed  thiug
if at tbe same time the Legislature were
to give  to the   local   authorities  here
and everywhere   the   power   to determine the studies according to the condition in each place.
Our machine system is designed entirely in the interest of the professions.
The Ontario Minister of Educntion
boasts that it offers a straight course
from tbe kindergarten to the university. Everything is conducted with a
view to examinations.and the machine
is worked with the one purpose of
turning out teachers and professional
students of one kind aud another. In
Nelson the parents of ninety per cent.
of the pupils have probably no desire
to give their children more than a
good useful business education. But
they are thrown in*o the maohiue and
made to take up subjects of no earthly
use to them, and thoy oorae out at the
end of their term with tired and dazed
brain, with a smattering of stuff that
nine times out of ten rather unfits than
qualifies them for the sphere of life to
which ciroumstanoes call them.
They are not educated in any nseful
brauch ; they are not educated at all,
but are ground out as a saonfloe to the
remaining ten per cent., who are oar
ried on to the top cf the system. It
is a big subjeot, too big to be discussed with advantage here, hut not too
big to be taken up by some earnest reformer with pity in his heart for
the rising generation.
The   Vauconver   World   is    chafing
sorely because it cannot prevail on the
authorities to put up  signs in conspicuous places   calling   attention   to  the
rule   of   the   road.    Some such   signs
should be placod at  intervals of  every
yard or two along Baker street  in this
Oity, considering   the utter  confusion
which distinguishes the traffic   on   it.
The majority   of   foot pasengers  turn
neither to   the   right   nor to the  left,
but go straight ahead, as if others had
no claim to he   regarded.    And   when
not going ahead   thev   nre congregated
on the two edges of Ihe narrow   walk,
in such numbers   that it is often difficult to make progress at all.    To ladies
it must be annoying as  well.    In this
respect Nelsou has not yet raised itself
above the grade of a   country   village.
By the way, is it not a little awkward
to adopt  a   rule in   this Province that
differs from that in the rest of the Dominion?   The   general Canadian  rule
is *o turn   to the right, whether walking or driving, au.1 one would thiuk it
would be  more  convenient  if it were
uuiform.

On Tuesday the 6th instant, Dr.
Wallace, member of tbe Imperial Parliament for the Eastern Division of
Edinburgh, died within a few hours
of being stricken down while addressing the House. On Friday, June 23,
seventeen days afterwards, his successor was elected. Mr. Jameson, late
member for Winnipeg in the Dominion
Parliament, died last February, and
his Huccessour has not been elected yet.
These highly improper and inexcusable
delays used to occur under Tory administration, and it was wholesome to
listen to the indignation of tho Liberals in denouncing them. Now they
do what formerly so shocked them.

The Rummer sun is now at its zenith
and we long for the cool evening hieeze
tof a the tired brow when the day of
toil is done. Now do we learn to
properly appreciate tha great natural
gift of Nilson, uam.ly the lake. The
watei will rise hut little more aud
the lish si em to kn w this for they
are already locating their animal feeding gronnds.
From the G. 1'. K. wharf down to
Squire's point aro many odditis where
in the evening tlio large trout will
ho found feeding. The angler would
do well to watch for a rising fish, then
oast over it. with what skill he can
command, as soon as possible. These
lish come up to the surface from a
groat depth, make a hasty but hearty
meal on whatever food is flouting on
the water, then descend, probably for
digestive purposes.
During tho past work a fair number
have been taken in this manner at
eventide. A small fly dressed with
yellow or olive body, red tail, grey
duck wings and red or claret
lias bjen the most successful.
At Slooan Junction a number of
fish, some of them largo sized ones,
have been taken wfth grubs. In a
few days the water there will bo in
order for fly fishing and those who
fancy the legitimate sport wonld do
well to be on the alert.
The oh arr fishing at Balfour is almost at an end, thouoh the fly fishing
for trout thero should be excellent
now. Last year I had very gcod sport
there about this time, though this
year unfortunately I have not yet been
able to gut away in order to give the
water there a trial.

f sberman never lose.- the love of that
e nployment even if they lis a for
t! oir living. Would it be stiunge if
the gentle John, in bis old age and
weary and longing for the end. did not
dream of the dnvs when ho sat in   his
connection with St. Saviour's Sunday
school, commencing today, the lector
being the teacher.

Nearly   ull   the   old players are   buck
I have been upbraided, doubtless
with good intent, for recording, on
more than oue occasion, tbo success
(or non-suooess as the case may he)
in angling of those who are known in
certain religious communities as Sab-
hath breakers.
iu tbo first place I must plead ignorance. I was brought up to believe that
the Sabbath day was the seventh day
ot the week (i. e. Saturday), that
the strict observance of the 7th day
was a Jewish custom, which custom,
ou ono occasion, was somewhat severely commented on hy the founder of
Christianity.
However a prnotice has arisen among
Obristnm nations to set apart one day
in the week to rest from everyday
work. In Scotland, in parts of England, and in those parts of the British
Empire where an infusion of Scotch
blood is nolieeabi'i, this custom differs
strongly in its literal observance
from that of Othei countries. Whether
that strict observance is only skin
deep, whether there is a touch ol
l'liuriseeism iu rhiit doctrine I cuuTrol
say; hut this I do know, from many
years of experience, that a powerful
amount of the national beverage is
consumed in Scotland on Sundays.
We were told as children that n cer
tain oil gentleman invariably "find
some mischief still for idle hands to
do," as on ibis score, we should refrain from binning the (iiu'l for bis
weekly weakness. It may surmise
those who have not lived among other
nations than theii own if I were to sny
that the average Frenchman, Italian or
Sonninrd would bo jnst as much
amazed nt the sight of perspiring
Christians "sitting under" some black
robed minister of the gospel on a
summer's day as would he the rrnm
Scot at tho very mention of horse
race, theatre, or bull light on a Sunday,
Of course we know, or ought to
know, that the Briton is tho supreme
being, to which all nations should
how, that his law is supreme, thai his
deoree on nil matters, religions or
otherwise, is infallible, There is no
argument against this. Bike St Augustine ol old, we end nil controversy
wilh our "Koma loeuta est" and ill
heretics, uneoveiiauted idolaters and
Sabbath breakers must take a back
seat.
1 cry "peeeavi" and hope some day
to be forgiven. Some day [ will have
my revenge though. Having tried
nearly every trade, 1 will take orders, then 1 will fish six flays out of
the week (save when I can make a bit
on odd funerals or weddings) and on
Sundays preach all day lo augleis who
have to work six days in the week and
have only Suuday on whioh lo oninv
their Bport, And rem oilier Ihe hoi
ter ihe day the longer will lie the
sermon.
Von may smile but I think an an-
gler sometimes is sufflolentlv serious
to make an attempt al a sermon. He
might take for ii,stance as his taxi
"Peter sold, '1 go n Hulling!' " Think
of the occasion when these words
were   tittered    The   light of  the   long
Gull Inn n day dving out beyond the
peaks of Lebanon in tho north,gleaming like u star, the snowy summit of
Hermon rocoives the latest ray of the
twilight before gloom and night do
soonds on tho lake of Gcnnosurot. The
white walls of Bethsaida shine grey
and cold on the northern border of the
sea and the full moon rises slowly over
tho desolate hills of tho (ladaienes
marking the silver pathway of the
Lord across tlio sea And the poor
simple fisherman who had conversed
with the holy child as thoy waited
for the fish, then boat rocking tn tho
soft winds that came down from T.ob-
nnon, had been sumnionnd from theii
daily task to follow the master, who
had seen tbe wuvos and storm wind
cense thoir raging at the command of
tho carpenters son, who had gazed at
tho solemn grandeni of that i.row torn
with thorns, who had Witnessed tho
last awful sacrifice that consummated
the world's tragedy, thev probably
sought on the water something of the
old uxcitonient which thoy had known
from boyhood, tired ol waiting and
longing and looking up thu hill sido on
the Jerusalem road for the coming of
their risen Lord.
The story of that night's fishing, ot
the surrounding scones, the conversation in tlio boat,tho unspoken thoughts
nf tie fishermen, would make the
graidest story of fishing that tho
world has ever known. And then the
voloe in the gtey   morning light com-
i lout,   rocked   by the   waves   of  blue i with this organization
, Ci'etinesnret, and heard the voice of the
muster asking  him again, "Have you
any   lish."    And Finer   wending   his
j way io the placo where he would show
|his final devotion to his Lord by suffcr-
ng the same death, might, ho not have
recalled tbat same question.   Ay! but
the question was to Ihmn as fishers  of
even   now.    And   the Christain world
will   make   answer  i'or   them,
Tn those who know nothing of the
gentle and purifying associations of
angling, these may seem strange, unorthodox, almost, profane notions.
Thero may he some who will rightly
understand thorn,
We  anglers aio   a   peculiar   people,
Iu some respects we resemble   rat onal
beings, in others v\e differ from tl.em.
Often    we    understand  each   others
.thoughts   by an intuition   you would
' not dream nf.    Some of us, I   for ono,
have rn-t   our  flies   on   many waters
where memories and   fancies and facts
rise;   the^io   wo treasure up and   somtf
hackle, i times are tempted to display   them   to
! the unbeliever.
And if any of us may, by not conforming lo certain customs and observances which some consider to be tho
very test of the Christian Faith, cause
the orthodox believer tc blame us, we
would ask for mercy.
Accidents oi birth, education nud
domicile works wonders in religion.
Thero are somo who may have been
thrown in coufa t with Fhaiiseos
"Whose life laughs through and   spits
at their creed
Who maintain Time   in word and defy
Thee in deed. ���'
and who have lost the primitivo foundations of faith.  Some, through unknown
cause, have wandered from the   laith.
Some have now reached it.
Blame us if yon will; we acknowledge
our fault, but would mildly   urge, (in
the words of J. Kussel Lowell)
"Have thine   own   faith, but hope aud
pray for all."
Let us shig to  the   prnise,   etc,   etc.

It is stated that some Rossland
horsemen refuse to attend the Nelson
sports this Dominion Day because of
some rudeness shown the u last year.
This is to be regretted because of the
rudeness, if there was any, and be
cause of its effeat. There is not the
slightest reason to apprehend any unpleasantness on this occasion, and the
Rossland men can come fully assured
of an enjovable day so far ns it can te
made so by the management.
Tho Creston correspondent of tho
Kootenaian writes: "The Bedlington
& Nelson Railway ou this end is
pretty nearly completed and ready for
rails with the exception of some
bridge work on Goat river bottom
which, however, will be finished in a
month at least. McLean Bros, are
nearly through with their contract,
so aro Grant & Sheedy, while Brook-
enridge & Lund will take a month
longer and   Cowan & Co., six weeks. "

THE WAVERLY HOTEL.
Passing through thin gtoup to Palmer
Land, we entered Palmer and through
Hughes gulf, which we found was not
a gulf but a strait as long as Magellan
ana somewhat wider. We spejt about
two weeks surveying Hughes' gulf
and filially emerged into the Pacific
and proceeded along the west border
or coast of Graham's Land until we
entered the main body of the ice pack
west of Alexander Island. We passed
nine miles south until we were frozen
in. The vessel thus frozen in the pack
ice remained fast for 18 months, during which we drifted 2000 miles to
and fro ami finally emerged into clear
water at 10 west longitude. We then
returned directly to Punta ArenaB.
