was an insult to ask any working man
to support a government which would
formulate such legislation as that. He
closed with tbe advice to all working
men to elect Mr. Rainey at the head
of the poll on Feb. 'i.
The next speaker was W. Bunt
Morgan. He had a pretty big programme mapped out for him to answer the questions propounded. The
hour was late and the speaker proceeded to thrill the audience with a pa-
ihetic story of his early trials and difficulties which swallowed up the first
10 minutes allotted to him. "My sympathies are with the working men,"
he quavered (voice, "Will you vote for
Rainey?")   (laughter).
He believed the separate patty iu
the interests of labor was a mistake,
and a big one. Liberals claimed to
have made this country but they bad
swallowed the Conservative policy,
and he predicted with waving arms

Dominion election, the Liberals would

Coyote   in   Winnipeg.
Reports of a coyote running loose
on the streets of Winnipeg were made
by members of tbe city police force
last Thursday morning. Four reports
were made of a coyote having been i
seen by four different constables in
different parts of the city, but it is
supposed that the animal sighted was
the same one. It is very seldom that
these wild animals approach towns or
cities, and this one must bave been
rendered desperate by hunger. One
constable tried to shoot tbe coyote,
but failed.
Two Diplomatic   Rumors.
London,  Jan.   27.���From   the  innermost  circles of diplomacy  and social
life, comes  the  insistent   report   that
Whitelaw Reid,  ambassador from  ihe j
United   States  to  the     court     of   St.
James, will resign early in the spring
and   withdraw    from    diplomatic life. I
The story Is  told   with  much  circum- -
stantia! detail.
Washington,   Jan.   27.��� It   is   persis- !
tently reported ben- that In the event
oi the retirement of Reid, he will be
succeeded by George B. Cortelyou.
A Civic Shake-up.
Winnipeg, Jan. l'T.���There is a well-
defined rumor in civic circles to
the effect that there will be something
of a shake-up within the next few
days. The reason given is that some
of the officials have been taking an
unwarranted activity in certain measures which have come before council,
and it is felt that a suspension will
have a beneficial effect in causing the
officials in question to take more interest in their own work, and less in
other affairs.

Un    Saturday     last,    Gilley     Bras,
despatched one of their teamsters up
the hill with a consignment oi' coal,
and  about  two  hours after the team
had  left   tiie  coal  yard,  a complaint
was   received   to  the   effect   that   the
team, minus the driver, had been for
a considerable length of time obstructing  Columbia  street.     A   man   wa3
despatched to the scene of the trouble,
and there, sure enough, was the team
and  waggon   -almost   across the   ear |
track.    The load was on board just j
as it had left the barn, but the man. in
spile of a  well  instituted search, was
nowhere  to  be  found.     Another man
look charge of the team, and the firm j
continued   its   hunt   for   the   missing
one.     No results    arose    from    t he
! search,  and   foul \\.\y was  hinted  at,
although how a man in the prime of
lit could be waltzed off In the middle
of    the    day     In     up-to-date      New
. Westminster,   passed comprehension.
The mystery was cleared up yester-
, day, aud the vanished one was located
mi board the Transfer,    lie was ask-
eil why lie had left  his team and ski-
dooed  in   such   a mysterious  manner.
He said In extenuation thai  he was
an old steamboal  man and had been
promised   a  job  on   the   Transfer   as
si (.n  as   it   started   to  run.     He had
i started out   with  his  team when the
Transfer whistled, and in spite of himself,  he   had   just   dropped   the   lines
and run for dear life for fear that he
would get left.     He had caught  the
boat as ii  was preparing to pull out
tor a  load  of hay, aud  was so happj
thai   he   never  wanted to  see  either
: a  team or a  lump oi' coal  again.    He
was sorry  he had deserted the team
1 ut   ii   was   tiie   only  thing   he  could
i do under the circumstances.

The Pollards "In Town."
Wherever the youngsters with a
world-wide reputation, the Pollard
Liliputlans, care to travel, they are
sure of being accorded a hearty re-
\ ceptlon, and their appearance here
lasl evening was no exception. A
large number of old friends of the
clever litle actors and actresses were
on li.m I when the curtain rose,and the
audience certainly enjoyed every
minute of the performance. The
company has been travelling for the
past lew years, lmt it is becoming
painfully evident thai the children
arc growing up, and their attraction
: hild performers will soon be a
thing of the nasi.
Last night's phi. was carried
through in o swinging manner, each
one playing his pari with ease and
perfection. Teddy McNamara, the
clever little comedien, received a
greal reception, as iii.i also the Helntz
twins, who are prime favorites in
every city of note from the Atlantic
to the Pacific. Miss Daphne Pollard
and Miss Merle Pollard each si ored
il success as the Duchess of Dilffshire
and daughter respectively, while Miss
Oliver Moore, as a male impersonator,
was a decided treat. The ensemble
and chorus was well worthy of BUp-
parting the principals, and this is Baying a good deal.

thi home market Bhould be Insufficient to absorb the whole product of the
land there are markets opening up In
the Orieni that may be trusted to take
the surplus.
The Province has special  problems
to solve.    The  work  of  rendering  its
valleys easily accessible   is    no    liu'lit
one.   The passage ol transcontinental
railways to tidewater will incidentally
contribute    to    internal    development
and to the solution of   some    of    the
transportation    problems,    which   the
"sea of mountains" renders decidedly
difficult    To a Province in that stage
of its evolution wise and straight government   is   more than commonly   is

and  therefore,    from    189-1    to
both years included,  four  - n-
: al   eli   tions   were   due���ha I   to  be
under the constitution.    An i   ix-
actlj four general elections were held,
no   I:.ore.
i tome now   o this "sl ible" Government   which   has   restored   credit  and
ali the rest of it.    lt has economized
In certain lines���notably it has starved public works and 'hereby has hindered  agricultural    development.     It
has largely increased taxation, and ii
lias   put   that   taxation   upon   productive industry much more largely than
iil'On private privilege.     In this way,
by thus cutting off expenditure and increasing  taxation,  and  by selling out
the resourses of the country to specula "is al   "bargain-counter"  prices,  it
i- able io show, so it says, a sin pin-.
Now for its "stability."   One of its
leading members dropped out   nearly
ii year ago.     Why?   No attempl  was
mad" to ful  his    place    all    through
the year.     Why?    A mon b   ago, yet
another leading member of the aggre-
g r Ion dropped out,    Win ?   His place
was filled; but a general election was
illed" nearly a year before :; was due.
and the new Minister does not, thei e
���  re, need  to go back for re-election.
Why  was  the   election   called?    One
l< j ling function of this stable g ivei
��� at, we are told, is to put a stop to
these "frequent" elections���then why
call    ne 1 efore It was due.'

IMPROVING  THE   ATTIC.
8ugBCi*ion�� That Will Help |n Making
It Habitable.
In addition to those familiar uses
of attics which are so vivid when it |
ra.iis or when one is cynical or
moody or inclined to be witty at the
expense of bedposts and warmm<?
pans, there :.r" unproved uses an attic can le p-.:t to and still remain an ,
attic. The feeling of attics���that
uiise they pive of a friendly alienation from the world below stair*���
must not. of course, bo lost. If one
desires no more than a place in
which to tell fairy tales at twilight
tiie lighting of a candle might
le change enough in the usual un-
plastered and left over space. Rut
that is too simple. Besides, the
ti ste for fairy tales is not universal,
aiid it is, moreover, a taste more
natural in the nursery than in the
attic. Rut a habitable attic i nst
