How    a    Celebrated     Statesman     Was
Treated  to a  Surprise.
V m ous men are sometimes jusi
like other men iu the eyes of ch I
dren. ' in ��� da., the celebrated &d
ward 1.' ��� rei: was riding along ���
road in .< .. sac-husetts. At Lynn a

form in his serene mind.
The pause became oppressive,  K'

An Interesting Experiment.
Take an ordinary glass filled with
water and put m as much soda as
the water will take up. Tie one end
of a string to a common bean and
ihe "ither end to a wire which is laid
-.urn-; tlie lop of the glass, thus
submerging the lx.'.-.n. In a vcrv
few minutes tlio bean will begin to
be covered with little spine-, and in
a short time it will resemble a tiny
porcupine. The reason of this is
easily explained. The bean is quite
porous and soak, up a good deal of
'"'���:i.er, but the soda cannot enter the
bean and tliorefoie attaches itself to
the outside.
. Choosing  ths   Right.
One evening when little Howard's
mother was suffering with rhcuma
tisra she said to him:
"Howard, dear, run upstairs in a
hurry and get mother the slipper
for her right foot."
The boy ran upstairs quickly, but
did not come down for many minutes.
At last he called over the stairs:
".���Mother, which slipper do yo:
"The right one, Howard, and
bring it at once."
Thero was another wait, and then
the little follow called:
"Mother, which wav are vou sitting?"

Condemned to slm-rry.
Two hundred years ago, when mon
and women wero condemned to death
for trivial offenses, it was the custom
in Scotland to commute the death sentence into perpetual servitude to sped
fled masters. In other words, the con
dem nod person became a slave, it
was further ordained that be should
wear a metal collar round bis nock re
cordiua; bis sentence and punishment
Tho Society of Scottish Antiquaries
owns one of these collars, fished out
of the Forth above Alloa. It Is brass,
witli this inscription: "AlexanderStewart, found guilty of death for theft at
Perth, 5th December, 1701, and gifted
by tiie justiciars us a perpetual serv
ant to Sir John Aresken of Alva."-
Collectors' Magazine.
"My dear," said u vain old man to
his wife, "these friends here won't believe that I'm only forty-five years old.
You know I speak the truth, don't
"Well," answered the simple wife, "1
aupposo I must believe It, John, as
you've stuck to it for fifteen years.".-

past, and that : ne general line of Mr.
McBride's course at Ottawa v.as laid
out in a.lvalue. with tlie ol jeel of creating an "issue," there can be no
doubt, it is equally certain, also, ihat
Mr. McBride himself, when ho bounced
oui of thai committee room the other
day ami hanged the door after him,
was simply carrying out the programme, and imagined that he was
doing it well. What his colleagues
and ihe oilier party advisers will think
of it, however, is another question.
Quite possibly they may consider that
ii will be well to hold off the elections
as long as possible, and trust to the:
chapter of accidents to turn up (something which will help to offset the
Ottawa fiasco.
He ihat as ir may, however, it .appears certain that the "better terms"
question will lie the battle ground in
chief in provincial politics during the
interval between this time and the
closing of the polls on the day of the
general election, be thai Interval long
or shorl. The government cannot.
avoid tlie subject, am! tlie opposition
will not wisli to avoid it. -Mr. McBrlde, of course, will not acknowledge
that he has made a deplorable muddle j
of the whole business, and his political friends will lie compelled for their
own sake to support him. Having al-
lowej him to lead them into the mess,
tl ey must now make the best of it.
Am! whal a mess it is! Despite his
glaring unfitness for the position

and returned, there is little doubtthat
he would have been acclaimed to-day
as ile man who had settled honorably

and a: ihe same time had given i: the

regret generally does.
li will lie some time before full particulars as to all the points involved
nie available; Imt enough is now
known to enable us to form a clear
i'i Inlon as to the conduct of lhe British Columbia representative, and also
in tb" manner in whicli the claims
of lb" province were treated by the
Dominion government, and these are
the chief points for present consideration. !!." and liy will come tlie dis-
cussion of the steps in bo taken to
secure tbe Province againsi permanent loss from tbe blundering of tlie
premier;  but thai time is not yet,
It musi not be forgotten thai Mr.
McBride bad two questions to deal
with- i 1 l tbe general request of all
tbe provinces for a readjust menl of
tlie subsidies���"better terms"; and i_i
lbe claim of Iiriiish Columbia for npo-
ciil consideration, or in other words,
for a grain of money, either in a lump
sum (.��� by way i E ai  an ut 1 payment,
addition   to, and   ::. lepen lenl ��� if,
.a . -:.!.���'��� i un be- the flrsl hea 1.
Cnder tbe firsl he, !. the i ��� iuesi ol
the provinces for increase of the su i-
sidies has been granted. Under this,
British Columbia receives $115,000 per
annum additional. The request for a
grant in ail of tbe administration of
criminal justice was refused. In these
matters all the provinces are mi the
same footing, and the settlemenl ap-
1 pears to have been accepted by nil.
Tha' matter is now oui nf tlie Held of
controversy. Further, tlie fact that
I liritish Columbia lias a special claim
j���is entitled to preferential treatment
���has been admitted by the other
provinces, and also by tlie Dominion
government, although the admission
is in thai case informal nr unofficial
There remains, therefore, only the
q ms-inn as to ilie amount which the
Province should receive I:, satisfaction if 'li'" claim. This point Mr.
McBride faile 1 to bring in an issue.
\\'e have bis sliding scale proposal
and we have Mr. Whitney's million
dollar resolution, which the other premiers unanimously adopted after Mr.
McBride had lefl the room: but neither of these has been pronounce I ip
on by the Dominion government, so
fa; as we are aware. It is true that
tin effort will be made tn import into
tbe controversy ihe silly deman! for
arbitration which our governmenl put
forward. No sensible person can support that. Mr. McBride coul 1 not find
a single supporter among tbe assembled premiers. There is nothing to
arbitrate. The claim of British Columbia is admitted; Imt it is a moral,
not a legal, claim
Ii will be seen, therefore, that Mr.
McBride did just enough with regard
to the special claim of the Province
to prejudice our case and leave it in
a worse position than he found it.
There is good evidence tha* the assembled premiers would have been j
willing to go beyond the million dollar
proposal; there is good evidence that
the Dominion government would have
consented to go beyond it; Imt Mr.
McBride preferred to bounce out. and
by ko doing he has fixed, for tlie present at least, a million in ten yearly
payments, as the extreme extra allowance which the Dominion, ir. 'be opinion of the provinces, would be justified in giving tu British Columbia.
Discussing the attitude of the Dominion government, it will be well to
refer to tlie editorial article (largely
quoted from tlie Mail and Empire)
which appeared in ilie Columbian of
Tuesday, its argument, briefly, is
that there wasaplot.in which ihe six
Liberal premiers at the conference
wre parties, to play a "shabby trick"
ui on the Conservative premiers and
the provinces tbey represented, dust
what the shabby trick was; just how
i: was lo lie played; jusi how the
provinces represented by the Liberal
premiers were to lie compensated for
ibe effeel of the shabby trick upon
them���since they, of course, woul 1 get
the same treatmenl as the other prov-
ini is- -and jus' bow these Libei al pre-
��� iers were brought to consent to a

C ���!. South describe the work of the
Children's   Aid    society.    Rev.   J.   S.
i Henderson was in the chair, und Rev.
i Messrs. Owen  and   Barraclough  eon-
I ducted Uie    opening    exercises.    .Mr.
��� South hailed the increased attendance
as an evidence of deepening intei,.-:.
He said ihat the society had now under its care Hill children, whom it
v.as teaching cleanliness, both physical and moral. Of these, eight had
come from New Westminster, and except for a few private subscriptions
and the small sum paid by the father
ei one child, the society had received
! practically nothing towards their support. Mr. South related many pathetic stories, and at the conclusion of
his a.Muss a motion was unanimously
carried expressing the thanks of the
meeting and its appreciation of the
. irk done by the society. Upon the
motion ( ! T. it. Pearson, it was deci led to organize a committee, consisting of two from each congregation In the city, to assist in the work
of the society. In the discussion some
strong opinions were expressed us to
the pittance which had hitherto dis-
i layed New Westminster's interest in
ItP own neglected children.

Mr. Austin Explains.
To the Editor of the Dall    Ni ws:
Sir, -There lias been a ��rong ini-
pi< ssion givi n the pub! c as to a fire
on the Blue Mountain road last summer It was reported by parties, with
design. I presume, that Mr, Lafayette
Si Ith's house was I urned by a flre
from Ft. W. Hawthorne's donkey engine. Now, l wan' to say that Ihere
is not the leasi possible proof for such
a Btatement, and thai I can prove such
hi any unbiassed mind, a- also Mr.
Smith knows, too, thai there were
two distinct tires from two separate
Eources. Such fires often occur with
no one to ilium', even aftei reasonable i recautlon bas I ��� ��� n exercised, ii
si ch a win 1 and heal come as on thai
day, when tires may start irom
source., comparative!}   safi.
That the public maj learn some
'a .���-litis from such a costly experience
as Mr. Smith had in the loss of his
good house, the best In that settlement, I might sav thai there- were
two mistakes, one was that there
v/as not within reach even water
enougjh to drink, which was surely a
want of preparation for what was
likely to come, the burning of the old
logging camp; and second, the men
on hand���and I think there were
enough on hand to save the house if
there was water I say the men all
rushed to the roof at onci. all but one.
and he had nol noticed the lire in
time which caught on the other side
of the house, down mi the ground, so
getting headway before being attended to. I was working at a neighbor's
house where the flre waa rlghl up
close to, al the time, and saw their
mistake. So if we can all li arn same
lessons from the I uf our neighbors, ii may teach u I e moi,. |jre
ya" I and to aci with more pre i n ������
