throw duly constituted authorities
who betray their trust. The way so
stimulate patriotism is not by waving flags, bestowing tariff favors, nor
yel by gifinting public moneys to a
few individuals who want aid in their
shipbuilding or Bhipowning enter-
in ises. It is by making the conditions
of life easy and free and fair. Unless
this is done, the country may lose,
as did Germany in 1S49, some of its
I.est men, whose devotion to their
ideals of liberty forbade them to remain.
An American writer, discussing the,
question   of   the   teaching  of  patriotism���what   should and  should not be
done  lo  ensure  that  the  rising generation   shall   imblde  the  true  spirit
of the patriot, real love of country���
naturally  gives his idea as  to what
real   patriotism   is.    The   spirit  that
seeks   the   best   and   highest   for  thei
native  land;   choosing  rather  that it;
should  be  right and just  and noble
than that  it   should be rich or pow-'
erful���that is his ideal.
The concluding paragraph of the
article thus summarizes his argument :
The truth is, in our opinion, that
love of country cannot be taught.
Mere readiness to go to war is a
survival of savages^, not patriotism,
and should be discouraged rather than
encouraged;   it will always lie   with
There has been recently some
newspaper discussion���anil we understand some official correspondence
also���on the subject of sport, hunting
and fishing, as a provincial asset.
There are plenty of people in the
world, particularly the Anglo-Saxon
world, who have more time and money
on iheir hands than is altogether good
foi them, and who are minded to expend a fair share of both these commodities in providing themselves
with opportunities for the enjoyment
of whatever happens lo be their favor-
in pursuit, It was a Frenchman, we
believe, who said that when a Briton
desired amusement his prescription
was, "Lei's go out and kill something." Be that as it may, it is certainly true that the average Britisher
Will cheerfuly endure toll, put up
witli hardship, face danger, and
spend money, if he has it, in order
to get a chance to "kill .something"
with rod or gun. Yet it is no mere
last of slaughter; neither is it. a development of the commercial inst inc.
Your sportsman wants conditions
which call out bis energies and tax
his skill, and he wants a victim that
fights  I'or its life.
But for the Province, the coming
here of wealthy sportsmen is a com-
njerclal proposition, These men spend
money liberally when here, and they
advertise the Province and make its
name and resources familiar among
the people of the older countries. It
was said just now that love of
sport      was     not      a     development
olher   animal   passions   too   near  the I of   the   commercial   instinct,   but   in
surface. Give men justice, freedom,
and equal treatment before the laws,;
and you increase a hundredfold their
natural love for their land and kin.
To stimulate this by hot-house methods is to make patriotism artificial
aud false; lo stifle the noble kind
of love of country now exemplified
i.t   Russia���the   readiness     to    ovef-
the Anglo-Saxon the commercial instinct is active, and the returned
sportsman's tales fall upon ears which
are quick to note any hint of an
opening for profitable investment. It
is unfortunately too true that our governments in the past (and in the
present, for that matter) have been
unwisely  lavish  in  granting    conces
sions unguarded by proper conditions,
and by these concessions the progress
of the country has been and is retarded: but there are abundant opportunities still untouched���unthought of
even���in this "glorious Province," and
the wealthy sportsman, paying his
own way with a liberal hand, penetrating wherever good fishing and shooting are to be had, has a distinct
commercial value both as an explorer
and as an advertiser.
It will pay, therefore, to cultivate
him to a reasonable extent, both by
letting him know what the Province
has to offer, and by enforcing such
proper regulations as will make it
reasonably certain that, when h��
comes here, he shall "have his fun
lor his money."
There are a number of estimable
people in the country who have no
use for this kind of talk. They are
apt to sneer at it as pandering
to the whims of the plutocrats. But
that is not at all the point of view
from which the matter is here discussed It is simply a cold-blooded commercial proposition. British Columbia needs men and money, and .c
needs men with money. Those things
In the Province which will attract
to lis shores men of wealth and influence are, therefore, well worth
I reserving as valuable assets.

We had occasion to call one of the
piovincial papers to account the other
day for insinuating pretty broadly
thai the policy of the leader of the
Liberal party in Canada was annexation to the United States. The view
which we expressed at tbe time was
thai the whole trend of policy in
Canada���the logical result, of the
growth of its national life���was to
turn public sentiment away from and
nol towards, annexation. In a recent
number of the leading paper of Canada, which happens also to be a leading exponent of Liberalism, we find
this paragraph bearing on the subject:
"Sir Charles Tupper ..rill writes virile
notes to the press against Mr. Carnegie's views as to the destiny of the
British-speaking people. If anyone
looks for a coalescence of Britishers
and Yankees we must regard his optimism or his imagination as superb.
It is quite as absurd to expect that I
this enormous country, Canada, will
merge into the United States. People may talk ahout "race," "language," !
and "great currents of influence." The
fact of the matter, however, is that
they   are   all   as   nothing     compared

In the preparation of BOVRIL absolutely nothing but the choicest lean
beef is used, our main source of supply being the Argentine Republic, where
cattle are so plentiful and the consuming population so small that the best parts
of the beef can be obtained by us at a very reasonable cost

, in the matter, While he was making
his way towards the pitcher, the sensation of the evening occurred. Peele
was at the bat, and taking a true aim
he batted the ball towards the unwilling umpire. The bullet found its
mark, and McDonald was hit in a
vital spot, but a handkerchief in his
hip pocket saved him from experiencing the full force of the blow. In
extenuation, Peele explained that he
did it on the spur of the moment, because McDonald looked like the Blaine
McArthur also provided merriment
for  a   few  moments,  and  earned   undying fame by  making a sensational
run.    In the last innings, he stood at
first   base,   with   Worley   at   the   bat.
On a strike he had a fighting chance
of   getting  to   second,   and   he   made
a run for it.    Smith was supposed to

but  had strayed  some distance away.

- concluding  that   some  miscreant   had

thai   he   was   chasing   in   the   wrong

Dean's aggregation won by a score
of six to two.   Quite a number of new

, exceptions,   their   form   did   not   warrant placing them on the New  Westminster team.    Turner played a good
game, and with a  little practice  will
make his position secure on the team.
Clute, who relieved Turner as catcher  towards the  last, acted  the  part
well, but  when  out  in the field, his
attention   kept   straying  towards   the
other  end,   where   the   lacrosse   players    wore    practicing.       MeCulcheon
