London, Dec. 4.-The House of Lords to-night
passed the second reading of the Trades Disputes
Bill Lord Lansdowne, in explaining the Opposition s position with respect to the bill, said that it
raised the question as to what extent the House of
Lords was justified in barring the way of measures
recommended by the House of Commons, which, in
the opinion of the House of Lords, were detrimental
to public interests. He said he believed the duty of
the House of Lords was to arrest the progress of a
measure when it believed it had not been sufficiently
considered, or was not in accordance with the wishes
of the people. The Government had a mandate
from the people for the present measure, however;
so that the only course open to the House of Lords
was to pass the bill, although the House regarded it
as conferring excessive privileges on trade unions,
which were dangerous to the community, and likely
to embitter industrial life.

Congressional Delegation from Golden   Demand Will Be Made on New Council

Of the 1,400 lots offered for sale by
the city )asl June, only about Cij remain unsold at present, and the probabilities are that these will be snapped
up in the next few days. The. buying
uji of property has been most pronounced lately, and prospective Investors have been dropping into the treasurer's office at the city hall every
few minutes and inducing Mr. McQuarrie to talk rea! estate to them.
The amount which this sale of lots
has brought into the civic treasury ls
j approximately $45,000. It is worthy
if note that the heavy purchasers
have been outside capitalists, men
i from Manitoba, Alberta and Dawsoii
��� ilng the principal investors.

Medal Contest.
The Y.W.C.T.U. elocutionary  medal
contest which is to take place on Fn-
.:.;���  nighl is arousing considerable interest, and St. Pa-rick's hall will in all
probability   be filled to the doors.   Six
young la liis are training hard, in the
hope  of capturing the coveted silver
medal which is offered to the winner.
Mrs. Spofford, the provincial W.C.T.U.
organizer, is spending the intervening
a  s  in  the  city   for  the purpose of
i training the contestants.    In addition
' hi  el icuti  nary portion of the pro-

Game is  Scarce.
I The Indian trappers who are plying
their craft in the vicinity of Pi11 Lake,
, report thai game Is not very plentiful
this season. They are making a few
captures,   bul   they  are.   so   far,   not
I making very much money, in spite of
the fact thai fur prices are soo 1.
Hear-, coons and mink are the leading
varieties captured. Quite a number
are at the business, and M. Monk, < f
Fron' street, is already getting a considerable .-tuck of polls on hand. 11'
will soon be making a large shlpmem
to the furriers. Thus far this season
he has received a few ermines, whicn
are very scarce. Small as Ihey are.
the  pelts are  worth  from 60c to 75c
'apiece. Mink fur Is In large demand,
and the pelts are bringing from $1 t'i
$6 each, according lo the size and
quality. A few coon skins are coming
in and find a ready market at from 50c
to $1 each. Hear hides arc a drug on
the market, as the wholesalers s ate
'that there is absolutely no dema id
for black bear garments at the pre.-
i ni  'im*.
One of the topics which will most
likely be brought up at the electors'
meetings to be held at the end of this
week will be the proposal to rebuild
the Lulu island bridge during the coming year. This question has been discussed several times this year, but
owing to the present dangerous condition, il appears to be time that steps
should be taken to provide for Ihe rebuilding of the bridge. The old structure has been patched up and repaired
so many times that it is hard to see
where the original timbers are to be
found, and yet in 'Spite of all this attention, it is in a rocky condition, and
people who are in the habit of using
it daily are agitating for the construction of a substantial structure.
Some months ago, a project to build
a  thoroughly modern all steel  bridge
was discussed, but  the estimated cost
of  such   an   undertaking appears  to
have put a damper on the enthusiasm
of the promoters of the  project, and
not hing has been beard of il for some
time past    The general impression is
I that the new bridge will be construct-
I ed on the same lines as the present
structure, with certain mechanical im-
I pi'ovements.    Residents on the island
are hoping that the work will be started   early  in    Ihe   spring,  and    in   the
meantime ihey cross over the present
ricketty  makeshift   in fear and tn a-

I suppose thai In Bve years' time
anybody who doesn't w tar spectacles
will be liable to arrest and Imprisonment with or without the option of a
fine. I cannot believe that all people
who wear spectacles suffer from defective vision. I think that the great bulk
of the people who overdress their faces
with pieces of gold mounted glass do
hi> out of vanity. They consider tbat
It Improves their appearance and tends
to make them look more Intellectual.
Vou will notice that no pretty woman
or handsome man ever goes about witb
n gold nose improver It would, indeed, be a. extraordinary thing if our
oculists were to tell us that beautiful
people never had defective eyesight-

in a country growing like ours for property to remain long as
cheaply as you can get it now. The biggest fortunes in Canada have
been made from Real Estate, and the smallestcapital is sufficient.
We have many excellent properties both in town and country,
but prices are rising rapidly. Don't let outside investors secure ali
the snaps; do a bit yourself; do a bit of thinking, and become a
landed proprietor of your own.
Many, very many, of the properties we have been advertising the
past few weeks, have been sold, and there are several new om
this advertisement, and all splendid purchases.

Perhaps the mart portentous If tft-
accent Incident ln the proceeding,
lending up to England's war with
King Theodore of Abyssinia itm-a I
.hum!, bite. The British consul was
practically a prisoner at his court
���when Mr. Stern, a British missionary,
called upon the "kiiiK of kings." The
first mistake of the Englishman was
to seek an audience immediately after
the king hail dined too liberally with
tils court. The second was his choosing
n. Interpreters two utterly incompetent
men. The inefficiency of this pair so
angered tbe dusky monarch tbat then
and there he ordered them to be beat- j
en. Mr. Stern, "unable to bear the j
sight, turned around and bit his
thumb." Now, he wns not aware ol
It. but to bite the thumb is ln Abyssinia a defiance and a threat of vengeance. Tbe quick eye of the king I
eauj-bt the innocent menace, and be
lind the missionary also beaten. From
Hint sprang the war, the defat of the
forces of tbe king and his dentil by his
own linnd in his ruined city of Mag-
dala.��� London Standard.

Simply because a bee bus no ears on

sort of an auditory nerve. '1'bis is '
proved by ihe fact that grasshoppers,
crickets, locusts and flies all have their
ears situated lu queer places���under
thc wings, on the middle of the body
and even on the sides of their legs.
Tbe common house fly does its hearing by means of some little rows of
corpuscles which are situated on the
knobbed threads which occupy the
place which nre taken up by the hind
Wings of other species of Insects. Tlie
garden slup or shelless snnil has Its
organs of hearing situated on each
