Tha boomerang is an instrument used

aborigines of Australia. It is usually
about two feet In length, made of hard
wood bent iuto a curve resembling uu
obtuse angle, tint on one side and
rounded im the Other. The method of
using this curious weapon Is very oe-
culiar. The thrower takes it in on?

says that a government which was run
to the ground under Liberal rule a few
years ago cannot be brought to perfection during one term of office.
If Surrey Farmer is such an old
timer in the west he ought to know
that there was no Liberal government
in this province for the last twenty-
one years; indeed the executive of all
the governments that had the reins of
iwwer in Victoria in that time were
rank Tories. The Conservative, gave
away the Crow's Nest coal lands and
alt Jjie rest of the most valuable lands
in the Kootenay except that 850,000
acres which the McBride government
donated to the C. P. R. at the las- session of parliament. Surrey Farmer Is
in favor of Sunday as a day of rest,

but if the case of the two Japanese

the Federal and Provincial authorities
Is, as we are toi i it is, there can be
im proper test case made.
There Is no authority given in the

of liberty only ensues when the
offender fails to produce the amount

ABOUT THE SIZE OF IT. j v'- E. Fales
The    Montreal   Witness   which   is | ~
about    as   independent in jioUtics as
auy journal can be and tell   the truth
has this to say about the standing of
the political parties in the Dominion:
"The  Conservative,   have  again  gone
down to defeat in  the Federal  bye-
elections    t)f    two    constituencies���
Standstead, Quebec and South Huron,
Ontario,    In  Quebec, the  personality
ot Sir Wilfrid Laurier Ig so prevailing
that the Conservatives   would   have
sliR.it. chances of succes.-i even if they
bad a definite, attractive policy. Their
policy, however, is a thing of shreds I
and patches, dbout which hardly two
agree.    There is one prominent section denouncing the trusts and declai
i:i__ for  public  ownership of    public
.unities, and there is 'mother prominent section   to   which such views   are
anathema.   The party as a whole,  indeed, may lie said to advocate almost
everything, but to be .ulte devoid of
a coherent policy,   in addition to that
.'he Fowler and other disreputable in-
Cidents  are not  forgotten.    Members
of tlie Liberal government have suffered from charges which have practically   been   proved   against    them    and
driven them from offffce and influence,
but those who have made the accusations have also been besmirched. And
through it all the people have shown
faith in the purity and. statesmanship
of tho leader of the Government   and
hla chief lieutenants.   It Is eminently
desirable that  the Opposition  should
lie   be   a strong  one���much   stronger
than it is now both in numbers and
personnel,   But the material seems to
be lacking and the people appear to
be disposed to Lear with the party in
power  until  much   better    conditions
are found on the other side."

One of the most Irritating of Americanisms is the use of "limb" for
"brunch." "Limb" for "leg" has always been accepted as an American
prudery, but what is the matter with
"branch?" Careful Anglophile writers
are beginniiiK uow to reintroduce this
latter word, but "limb" has hitherto
been the transatlantic word with all
authors, if it Is also old English we
shall not mind so much, but Is It? The
Joke of tbe verse is at least 1,800 year*
old, hut how old is the English ver

for some time the spider, which was

several turns of its tiny rope round
one of the limbs that were free. The-e
tactics were carried on till all the Ir rj

poison iuto one of the legs. This - a

reduced the victim's struggles in a

Seattle, Feb. 17.���In one of the1
fastest soccer football games that has 1
been played in Seattle during the
present season the picked team from
British Columbia yesterday defeated
th. all-star Northwestern league aggregation three goals tot one. The
game was witnessed by about 3000
spectators, who braved the threatening weather and journey tu Woodland
park to see the international struggle.
The visitors started at a rapid gait
and the ball was dangerously close to
the Seattle goal when Boyle, by a
' tricky mow, put the Seattle forwards
in possession of the hall, and a few |
moments later it was back in the visi- j
: tors'   territory.     Jones,  the Canadian :
1
outside left, scored the first goal after I
1 a pretty  run down  the wing.    Clark
1 fumbled the ball and before he could i
recover Jones forced a score.
This apparently disheartened the'
Northwestern league stars, for their'
play lacked spirit and was uncertain
: for  some   little   time   afterward.     But
for the magnificent defensive work of j
Boyle and Christian the visiting team
j would have registered several tallies
in the opening session.
For   the    British    Columbia    Ujun
Jones,   Graham.   Trim   and    Strange:
were  the  stellar  performers.    Boyle,
Cnristian   and   Pilling   did   the     Best!
��� work for the local aggregation.    The !
visitors scored twice in the ;tirst half
and added another talley In the second
session.    Seattle's only score came in j
Lhe opening round.

Gold   Strike   on   Salmon  River.
A report was received in Vancouver
Saturday to the effect that a rich
. trike of freemilling gold ore has been
made on the Salmon river, Vancouver
island, and that the new firel i bids
fair to become the scene of a rush
that will do much to boom coast min-.
ing. None of the details are as yet
made public, but. it is understood that
the location which has caused the
talk is on a vein of quartz that is
I liberally sprinkled with free gold,
and that rhe values run iuto the hundreds of dollars per ton. li is well
\ known that there have been several
' atten nts to mine by placer methods
I in that section in times pas;, an.l it
is thought that the recent strike is
that of the vein that has given the
gold to be found on the bais of the
Salmon river.
