Preseverance is one of the attributes of James Gauthier, a stonecut-,
ter of Victoria, who has for several
years past been engineering a scheme
for the growing of flax at Pitt Meadows, where he la seeking to secure
control of about 5000 acres of low
lands, which would need to be dyked
before being put to any use. Mr.
Gauthier, who returned to Victoria
yesterday after a trip to the Pitt Meadows, is sanguine of ultimate success,
and states that he is meeting with no

Supplementing the brief reports of
yesterday regarding the terrific explosion at the Hamilton powder mills
at Northfleld, near Nanaimo, it was
learned least night that the damage
would probably exceed $2n,00Q. The
buildings and plant are a total wreck,
but no one was injured, the watchman
happening to be at a safe distance
when the explosion occurred.
Uttle damage was caused at Nanaimo through the explosion, other than
windows broken through tbe force of
the concussion. The cause of tbe explosion is shrouded in mystery, and
will possibly never be known. The
dynamite mills of the Hamilton Powder company are at some distance,
i i tl were not affected by the explosion, showing that the concussion was
greater at a distance than close by.

LC'RTS DAY  ACT AS
APPLIED  IN YUKON
Ottawa, Dec. 2;!.���Tiie question o:
prosoeuting for the violation of the
Lord's Day act in the Yukon has to
eoiuo before the department of justice
on refere.nce from the mounted police
authorities. A number of comnlaints
have been sent to Ottawa by police
officers at Dawson with reference to
work done on Sunday in that city. Mr
Newcontbe, deputy minister of justice,
writing to Col. White, said: "Tlie minister does not consider that the police
officers are under any larger obligation with regard to the enforcement
of the Lord's Day act than as to any
other criminal statute, and his opinion is that the duty of those charged
with enforcement of criminal law In
the Yukon territory will not be discharged lf adequate attention is not
paid lo any complaint that may 1 e

Day aci differs from pocedure under
ordinary criminal Statutes, Inasmuch as
ii is provided thai no action or prosecution for violation shall be commenced without leave of the attorney-
general, consequently when auy complaint is made concerning the violation of this act it may be referred t^

TUESDAY. DEC. 24. 1907.
A   LITTLE  TOO  EAGER.
The attempt of the federal opposition to discuss the collapse of the Quebec bridge before they are possessed
of the facts is typical of the futility
that seems to beset all Its ways. The
fact thai toe erection of the structure wa~ being carried oa by one of
the wealthiest and most experienced
bridge building firms in the world,
and was being superintended by the
greatest bridge engineers on the continent, should, on the face'of it, have
given Mr Samuel Darker pause. It
should at least have suggested to him
the propriety of waiting until the
commission which has been Inquiring
into the matter presents all the Eacl -.
An ��� tion has a wide license of
attack,  bui  the attempt from the beginning to twist  this appalling disas-
ter into a political lever is surely   to
strain opposition    privih ges    beyi p |
nd precedent.   Is it not, moreover, unpatriotic conduct of a ; articul irl.
type to take sides against  the country before It is possible to know all
the   facts ?     Would    any     ri ..
set of men  hold the cai Inei or any
member ei 11 responsi le for mistakes
or miscalculations of engineers? How
can  laymen  be held  responsible for
errors  or  omissions on   the  part   of
men skilled in wha!  is certainly one
of the most intricate and technical of
professions ?   All that non-professional men can do when they have a rail-
Way to build, a bridge to construct, or
a mine to be developel is to hand the
.work over    to those    who    by their;
?.riining,  experience,   and   skill  know i
all about it, or as much as   can   be
known.    If tue plans miscarry the responsibility  cannot fairly    be shouldered on the laymen.    It is necessary i
to say, however, that it has not as j
vei l}gAn made certain that the gov-.,
vr",ment has even this measure of re-j
'sponsibility,  which  again  shows how'
chffdisnly eager the opposition is to
institute ill-digested attacks upon the,
government. i
This attempt   to load   Sir Wilfrid's
government with the responsibility of
the fall of the Quebec bridge is a'r-out ]
as intelligent as that other attempt to I
lay the blame for the financial strln- j
gency at  Mr. Fielding's door.���Toronto Globe.
Religious Riots in Mexico.
Mi xieo    City,    Dec.     _!:;.���Riots  at
Sihuatlin, a village near Guada.leju.ia.
have  resulted from  the  arrest of    a
: priest on a charge of fighting with ,a
townsman. The priests and nuns call
ed upon the townspeople to avenge
this insult to the priest. Several hundred women and boys armed with
oluies and revolvers attacked the town
; lockup and released the padre. The
, riests have fled to the country fear-
in-' that thej will be punished. The
nuns, known as Sisters of Mercy, took
a prominent part in the disorder. The
disturbance was finally quelled.
Hugo and  Verdi.
Verdi labored long before be persuaded Victor Hugo, who was vexed
that the tragic beauties of his "Le
Boi B'Amuse" had been turned into
operatic effects, to attend a performance of "Blgoletto." He succeeded at
length, nnd Hugo sat in the box with
the composer and listened to the opera. But not a word did he spoak.
Verdi's impatience got the better of
bim, and ho asked:
"Well, what say you���nlxuit the quartet, for instance?"
"Show me n way in which four persons can be permitted to speak simultaneously." replied the poet, "and I
will write something more beautiful
than your quartet"

.Some time since a request was re-
celved from the Surrey council by
General Manager Sperling, of ibe __.
('. B. It., suggesting tbe advisability
of changing the plan of the li. C. EL It
Westminster-Chilliwack line, in order
that it might run through Mr. Tam-
Ix.Hiline's property, near the Milton
road. Mr. Sperling bas written tho
Surrey authorities that tbe plans being uow ready to file with the government, it is not deemed advisable to
make any changes, as this would entail heavy expense and would seriously  retard  construction   work.
The first appearance at the opera
house of the Merz and Nause vaudeville company was greeted by a fair
house yesterday evening, and, taking
the performance as a whole, the bill
presented was creditable and deserve:!
support on the part of the public. The
inevitable first night hitch happened
as usual, and the flrst performance
commenced so late that it was impossible to present a second, but pass-out
cheeks were given to late comers,
who will be entitled to use them after
the mildleof the week, when a new
bill is to be presented.
Messrs. A. G, Newman, il. R, Sie-

Those   of    England    C-ji'cd    the    Moit
Obliging  and   Helpful.
There is no country where the matter <���;' landing from American poison
ger Bhips is bo easy _inei Kn expedlti ius-
ly done as England, says the Travel
Magazine. Of course it Is ;i free trade
C( 11; 11 :��� v. the freest in the whole world.
There are duties levied on tobacco and
spirits, bul travelers arr allowed a
half pound of tobacco In any shape and
a half pint of spirits, which also in-
eludes perfume. Sugar is dutiable,
whether ln grain, sweets ur tn jam, but
a small ijuantity is freely passed In
all cases, however, thesi' goods must he
the actual property of tbe passenger
and be for his use ami control. Cocoa,
coffee and ten are also dutiable, as are
reprints of English hooks, outside of
these things, as named, passengers can
bring in anything ��� motors, cycles,
horses, but uot dogs, which animals a
not to exceed six mouths' quarantine
awaits Keep dogs uu the American
Ride. The customs officials are life appointees under the civil service -and
���will he found most obliging and help
ful. In fact they are n model to the
customs world. Tell the truth at all
times to these officials anil you will lie
all right. They are marvelously keen
on spotting the supposedly smart liar.
Lying doesn't pay "annyhow, Hinnes-

Famous Emblem That Adorns
Massachusetts Statehouse.
A codfish carved in wood hangs on
the white mahogany wall of tbe Massachusetts hail of representatives Iu tlie
statehouse In Boston. Between two
classic pillars it occupies a place of
honor, directly opposite the desk of
the presiding officer. This wooden fish '
is the renowned original sacred codfish
of the Old Colony, and il has assisted
at the deliberations of the lawmakers
of Massachusetts for more than a century and a half, gathering sanctity year
by yar. It Is a relic of the old building which preceded the present state-
house, and great is the dignity 'ef this
souvenir of colonial art and industry.
The  following account of  its  origin
is given in a Boston paper:
"Captain John Welch of Boston was
the creator and carver of the celebrated fish. He was a wood carver of renown for his time and In ITIT established his business In Dock square. He
bel mged to tho Ancient anel Honorable
Artillery company and afterward became its captain. II" was called upon
t ��� contribute to the decoration of the
colonial assembly hall, and as at thai
period codfish was thr. colony's main
article of export Captain Welch con
celved the idea of Immortalizing the
king fish of the Massachusetts waters.
When completed the carving was tit;
ished olT and colored so as to he a fac
simile of life and was hung on tv;.>
wall of the assembly hall."

When Benjamin Franklin wrote "A
penny saved is a penny earned," he
: Dot .. ��� i a penny skimped from
our daily living or from our aeceeSal-
tlea. That 18 not "a penny saved" in
t:... best sense. It is a penny stolen
from yourself. A penny saved is a
pi un. rescued from waste. An hour
taken from needed sleep is uot au hour
saved, bui an hour stolen. An hour
t tken from idle gossip and turned to
some Kuod account that is an hour
saved. And it is the same way with
our money and our products. There is
:. i economy In self denial, it is the
duty uf every man and woman to live
the fullest and best life possible, tii
get the most tbey can out of life, to
nourish tlie body and mind and Hol.l
and to develop them to the highest
possible degree. This cannot be done
by skimping. Economy Is necessary,
but we must not mistake what econ-
imy is. We must save the wastes,
stop the leaks; but, having saved, we
must put our Ravings to some good use,

"Flirting"  With  Brook  Trout.
If the fanner boy i-i more successful
ln llis catch than the city fisherman It
is because he realizes the advantage
of keeping out of sight. Of course the
supposition In that other conditions are
equal Familiarity with a stream often has much to do with the size of
the string. Trout especially love to
hide under wooden bridges, water
soaked logs, branches, etc. They seem
to realize that safety is found In such
places. When the current will not take
the worm to these spots one must resort to "flirting." This i.s done by
holding the hook In the left hand and
bending the pole until the tension ls
sufficient to throw the worm over the
spot. Considerable practice is necessary to make the bait land exactly
where it is wanted, but "flirting" Is an
art well worth acquiring.���Circle.

An old time lord mayor of London
whose sporting experience was limited
rode forth one day to join the city
hunt In the Holds about Marylebone.
Placed by his escort under a tree, bis
lordship heard the hounds give tongue
in the distance, aud thc sounds grew
louder and louder till one of the city
scouts shouted out, "The hare comes
this way, my lord." Tlie lord mayor
rose to the occasion, and. drawing his
sword, he exclaimed heroically: "Let
him come! I thank my God I fear hlm
not!"���Household Words.
