his character, reputation and record,
and found him nol warning in any
particular necessary lo the make up
of a clean, progressive and worthy
representative of the Royal City.

E.   A;   N.   belt   were   exempted   under
tin   new   School Act  and Its share of,
taxation   distributed   over  the   whole
province    because    Hawthornthwaite
and  Parker Williams wished it  to be j
so.      .Numerous   instances   were  cited
in which injury was done the country
at   the   whim   of the  Socialists.  "The.
an ernment speakers," said Mr. How-
, , "are irying to bring in outside
matters to obscure the real issue
which is whether the McBride governmenl, in the last three years, has
acted in such a way as lo justify the
country reposing trust in it a second
time. 1 say ii has nut." (applause).
The government niu-si be Judged by-
its record. He showed thai the Assessment Aci was oppressive ami Inequitable. McBride states thai he
has uoi raised ihe taxes on tbe working class, but rather on the corporations. He showed by the estimates
that McBride's statement was' untrue.
For instance.  Mr.   Howay  said   Lhe  S.
&   i >.  Ry.  cost   $25,1   a   mile  and  w ���
are .-till paying Interest on the bonds
bill    the   railway    Is   only   taxed   on   a

to the reeeni article on British Colum
lia   politics   which   appeared   in   the
. ..!���;   a   Financial      News,     and     said
I..,;, although he passed no opinion
on it. the I'm-i remained that Mr. Gos-
ui 11, bite McBride dispatcher from
i It . . ., and sometime of Colonist
fame, was in London at the time of
the appearance of the article. Mr.
Go-snell was also Interviewed, but
that is of no weighl some people in
New Westminster have been interviewed. Mr, Howay was sorry that
Mr. Gifford had not had time yet to
answer the questions he put to him
on Monday, but he (Howay) was going to continue asking tuilil li" received sonic information. He then
took up ihe matter of the bridge, He
had Mr. Macilonald's promise that the
Liberal party was pledged to a free
bridge upon -heir coming into power (applause), Mr. Howay then showed that the freeing of the bridge from
loll, wbicb Mr. Gifford had proteste 1
was impossible to accomplish, represented only a sum of $3,000 a year,
after the revenue was deducted fi on
the estimated com of maintenance.
Yet the governmenl which boasts a
surplus could not accomplish this,
.Mr. Howay closed with a Stirring ap-

lawyer or was not n working man, but
because he was a Liberal who would

Three rousing cheers for Howay
brought a most successful meeting i i
an end.
The Feast of St. Valentine.
A Valentine Fete will be held ln
'he St. Patrick's hall on Feb. 13 and
14, The Woman's Auxiliary of the
Royal Columbian hospital have the
matter In hand, and a large meeting
was held the day before yesterday
til which Mrs. C. A. Welsh, president
of the Woman's Auxiliary, preside I.
There will be various sale tables; the
liargain table In particular promise-
to he well patronised.
The main feature of the fete will
be the Valentine booth, which will be
arranged as a post office In charge ot
Mrs Rothwell, Mrs. Lyle, Miss Briggs,
Miss MacGowan and Miss Hanning-
Afternoon and high tea will be
served each day, and in the evening
ihere will be the entertainment.
The flrsl night will be a minstrel
show and the second nighl devoted
tn amateur theatricals, and as the object of the fete is a most worthy one,
it is hoped thai the public will liberally patronize It.
The Women's Auxiliary decided yesterday to give all order for two dozen
Shirts lo be sent to the hospital for
Ihe use of the men patients.

I The Tory papers have settled the
matter in advance, and pour out
columns of vainglorious boasting
about the big sweep they are going
to make Feb. 2d. We simply say:
The Liberals are satisfied with the
situation, and, day by day, their
satisfaction grows.
"Gifford and McBride's prosperity" is not the
prosperity of British Columbia.
Free traffic bridge this spring. No more holding
up the men coming to market.   Feb. 2d will fix it.
Can people lie and run at the same time? The
fact that the Tories have begun to lie recklessly
shows that they are on the run.    Keep them going.
The latest Tory ston' is that the Ottawa government is backing up the McBride government and approving of its actions.   What next?
If the World has the right end of that Pine
River coal land story, balloting on Feb. 2d will be
even more of a form than we anticipated.

empire, was Informed that the Prussian party intended to give him an Im-

promised to arouse Rtrong feeling.

you."  And he opened a portfolio where

Napoleon 111.. Heine and others.
Suddenly turning to a paper, dated
IMS, he said: "Ah. look at this. It Is
very curious. What would your friend

Prom Destruction.
Considering that the whole of ancient
literature v. is confined to manuscript,
it In wonderful that so much ot it has
come down to ns. The preservation of
s in ������ old writings lias been almost
miraculous. To u single copy preserved In a monastery of Westphalia, for
Instance, do we owe all that we have
of Tacitus. 'J'his Is the more remarkable since tbe emperor of that name
hinl copies of the works uf his distinguished ancestor placed In all the Imperial libraries and caused ten copies
of them to be transcribed yearly, still,
only tbe one copy has been found in
modern times.
a paL'e of the second decade of i.ivy,
we are told, was discovered by a man
of letters on a buttleiloor while he was
amusing himself in the country. He
rushed up to town, but he was too late,
for the battledoor maker "had used up
all bis parchment the week before."
Two manuscripts of Cicero on "Glory"
were presented to Petrarch, who lent
them to an old pr ptor.   This latter
gentleman, being pressed by want.
pawned them and died without revealing the name of the pawnbroker. Two
centuries afterward they were mentioned In a catalogue of books bequeathed to a convent, but could not
be found. It is supposed that Petrus
Aleyonius, the phj ��lcinn to the Instl
tutlon, appropriated them and, bavins
transposed some ,,f the thoughts to
bis own writings, destroyed the orlgl
The original Magna Chnrta of Eng
land has certain mutilations, presuma
My from a pair of shears. Ii is sai.l
that Sir Richard Cotton, calling one
day at Ids tailor's, discovered that that
man was holding In bis band ready to
cut up for a pattern a copy of the
jrreat Magna Charta, with all Us ap
pendages nnd seals.

Tnkc   on    llrj^liler   Much.
Most courtly and gallant of lisb is
the three splned stickleback, the beloved ���tiddler" of British youth. These
little lisb derive their name from the
sharp spines with which they are
armed and which they can raise or depress 111 will.
The femal - s Icl-.lcaack Is the model
wife of n ..i" -I Mislead. She does
not leave her c r,-'s to chance, but establishes a nest or nursery for their
reception, over which ber irritated little husband keeps a Jealous guard.
Woe betide the rival ���'tiddler" who
rashly approaches too closely the domicile of his neighbor during the breed-
lug season. With all his spines lixed
for action the warlike parent steams
out to offer him battle.
The contest that ensues is desperate,
the combatants darting at each other
with lightning rapidity, biting and
Striking nl each other with their spines,
n wi 11 directed cut from which weapon of offense will often rip up the~
body of the adversary, sending blm to
tbe bottom.
But most remarkable, of all Is the
decoration which nature bestows upon
the victor. Tho brilliant greeu of bis
mall becomes tinged with gold, while
his red throat blushes to n deeper line
than ever.
On the other hand, his vanquished
assailant, should be be fortunate
enough to escape with his life from the
battle, loses hi; brilliant and martial
uniform of red. green and gold and retires io some obscure corner of his native pond, attired In a bumble civilian
uniform of s iber and sorrowful gray.
