Conservative plurality   4,944 '    Conservative rejoicings   were   gen-
  eral throughout the province after the
results became known. Premier McBride had asked for a solid parliament
and he very nearly got it. The voice
of the minority, however. Is not quite
silence! and in the ne\t parliament
the two Sodalists will be able to
second each other's motions in order
to produce a debate.
The contest in Newcastle was very
close. R. B. DIer and Parker William's
ran now one in front, now the other,
until the final returns were received
and the Socialist candidate was
nounced the winner.
The Conrervatives have swept the
country with the two exceptions of
Newcastle and Nanaimo. In these
two places Socialists were elected,
Messrs, Parker Williams and F. Place
being the 1 ole opponents of the government returned to parliament.
Not a single Liberal was elected.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier said the senate
amendments were quite in accord witn
the pollcy of the government as announced by Hon. Mr. Cochrane when
tie introduced his bill. The subsidies,
for such they are. tabled in the House
the other night made it clear that
the money was to be divided between
the provinces, but had not made it
clear what was to become of it. The
e1 eet of the motion aB moved by the
minister of railways would be that a
conference woul:l take place between
the two Houses. He hoped the conference would result In an agreement
to carry out the Intention of the government as originally announced.
Premier Borden did not take exactly tbc same view end a slight pas-
teiest was naturally shown as to
how lar^-.j a major.ty was piled up In
the Westminster and Delta constituencies. Shortly after the result was
known ln the local contest, Mr. Tom'
Gifford, member-elect, appeared on tho
scene and was greeted witli tinging
cheers from the larte concourse present. Mr. Gilford was in a happy mood
as he mounted the table tp respond to
a unanimous appeal for a speech.
His speech. In part, was as follows:
"Electois of Westminster and especially my Conservative friends, this is
a pleasant duty for me too perform,
that of appearing before you as member-elect for the city of Westminster. |

Out in the middle of the Pacific, almost south of the Hawaiian Islands
and directly under the equator a missionary has toiled for some years on
two volcanic islands, laboring to bring
the natives within the Christian fold.
No one but a missionary would live
tliere voluntarily. Commiinciation
with the outside world is rare indeed. Theso islands are Washington
an.l Fanning, and they are so small
you cannot flnd them on the maps of
jicuimry geographies, but they suddenly have become points of prominence and importance. Not long ago
the British Government paid $325,000
to the missionary, Father Rougier, for
whatever right and title of interest he
had in them, and now a great fort Is
to be built on one of the islands, and
1:1 addition it is to be ma.le iv.coaling
uate tor the British fleet ia the ia-
Iv'nile the British have been negotiating for theso islands Uncle Sain
has not been "lule. A warship has
been sent to the third island of the
feroup, and it is likely that the Stars
and btripes have been raised on K,
and that the United States will claim
it as one of its possessions.
These are only incidents Indicative
of the activity among tne great nations to obtain favorable places on
wuich to rest their coal buckets ana
their rilles to provision and protect
their vessels to and lrom tne Manama
canal, savs the New Vork Press. Recently the United States has come into full ownership of four islands of the
fjclllo entrance to the canal. One ot
these is to be fortified with great
guns. The others are to be use as
coaling stations, supply stations and
barracks. 1 hese islands are Naos,
Flamenco, Perico and Culoura. It is
llxely that one of the greatest forts
of lhe world will be built on Flamenco island. Tne heaviest type ol sea-
coast mortars are to he laid in the
tits and fourteen-inch guns are to be
instilled to command the ocean approach and the canal up to the first
lock. Similar defenses are also to be
built on the Atlantic side of the isthmus.
History of the Islands.
The history of these islands runs
back more than a century to the
days of the old rush to California,
when all the world seemed flocking
to cross the isthumus, and the Pa��
railroad and the Pacific Mall

Not to Oppose Canal.
Ilerr Albert Ballin, director general
of the ilamburg-.\rnerieun bteainship
Company, in an interview printed In
the Tagehlatt on the subject of the
Panama Canal, and cabled to tne
Seattle P.-I., expresses the opinion
that it would be foolish for German
shippers to adopt a hostile attitude to
this great waterway, notwithstanding
the fact that the result would be a
great increase in America's mercantile fleet. Herr Ballin says Col. Goethals, the chairman of the Panama
Canal commission, assured him that, if
things were normal ships of an average size would be allowed to use thf
canal in small numbers by August,
1918, although the official opening had
been set for the beginning of liu5.

A great terminus is an inhospitablo

nliiceace of American hospitality���
that combination of eager good-nature,
Oriental iavtshnecs, and sheer bruin.
We had tlmn to snare.
Then we were in the train, and tlie
train waa moving.   And every few sec-
straight, lighted thoroughfare���scores
upon cores of them, with a wider and
moro brilliant street intersperse!
among them at. intervals. And 1 forgot at what hundredth street the
train passed before rolling filially out
of New York. 1 had had the feeling
of a vast and metropolitan city. I
thought, "Whatever this Is or la not,
It is a metropolis, and will rank with
the best of 'em.". 1 bad lived long la
more than ono metropolis, und i
knew the proud mil the shameful unmistakable markr, of the real thing.
And I was aware of a poignant sympathy with those people and those
mysterious generations who had been
gradually and yet so rapidly putting
together, girded by girder nnd tradition by tradition, all unseen by me till
then, thia illustrious, proud organism,
with its nohillty and Its baseness .Its
rnolitude and its mournful errors, tts
colossal sense of life. I liked New
York irrevorahly.

1 had stayed BWny from Quince Harbor for (wo months, and. 111 though u
small son pon Is 11 dull place Indeed
durlns ihe midwinter season. I felt a
lunging to at* down there In Decern-
her and see how the cedar clothed
bluffs looked with a snowy overdress.
1 wanted to sec the steely blue of the
bay under gray December skies; 1
wauled to hear the linrsb cry of the
(julls us tbey wheeled over Ihe water;
I wanted lo partake of lbe delightful
dullness of Quince Hurbor In winter.
Now, Captain I'.iirunbiis Flsh. my
ituneh friend und fellow fisherman.
companion of many delightful excursions on and about Quince Harbor,
bad written me a most mysteriously
worded letter, lu wbicli be hinted nt
his engagement lo Miss Maria Weeks,
with whom 1 bud boarded when in
tbe teaporti and suggested that a conversation with me would enlighten
him concerning several rather problematical social questions.
"Lord bless you. Miss Tellium. I was
just wishing for you," cried Miss
Maria, running down tlie walk to meet
me. "Vou came iu direct answer to
1 wondered whether lt was not Captain Hiiiimli.-is' unspoken prayer that
had brought me. but 1 paid the stage
fare nnd followed Miss Marin, who
was staggering under the weight of
my bugs, Into tbe warm bouse,
"How Is Lucy Drake?" was my first
tactless question, but I was interested
in Lucy, "ho lived uext door to the
Weeks' bouse.
Miss Mnrln tossed ber bead as she
arose from placing m.v bags on the
flijor. "So fnr as I know. Lucy's all
right." she replied rather tartly.
"In tbe last letter you wrote to me
you said that Lucy Drake was to be
your bridesmaid," 1 observed as I removed my outdoor garments with Maria's help.
"Hridesinnid. Indeed," she sniffed
scornfully. "I did ask her to be. and
glad enough atau wns to accept, never
having been so near the nlt.ir before in
her life���not that way. I mean���and I
even offered to provide the gown for
her. pink silk with pink roses." Maria
loosened my balr and brushed vigorously at Ihe luug-les. "I'lnk silk!"she repented.   "What do yon think of that?"
"It would havo been lovely." I raiit-
murwl, "l>m tell me why ��be refused
to act us" ���
"Rbe didn't refuse. She nccepted.
and the dress Is all made and lhe bouquet is ordered from Sinlthvllle. The
captain saw to all that himself."
"Tell me nbout It. Mis�� Maria. 1
shall never know untll you do," I
"There isn't much to tell, only Lucy
has taken full charge of my wedding
and Is bossing everything. Mlss Tel-
hnui, she actually advised the captain
to wear oue of his old yachting uniforms and call It a marine wedding.
She thought it would be something like
the in Lift ary weddings she reads about
In the papers."
"And what does Cnptaln Barnabas
say?" I nsked curiously.
"1 thought he wss kinder taken with
the Idea nt flrst. but now Lucy lias
talked so much about it that he's tired
of it He don't know what to wear
after all's said nud done. Not being
married before and getting tbe experience of having had a wedding Is a
great drawback." Sbe sighed as sbe
led tbe way downstairs.
"It must Iks" I murmured, wondering what questions the doubtful captain wished to put before me. "And
so I.ucy Druke will not be the bridesmaid after all." 1 said, disappointed at
this outcome.
"Oh. yeM, she says she will, nnd 1
haven't got any objection so long as
she don't trim up the church so lt
looks like the bottom of the ocean. I
reckon she'd like to bave clnin shells
uli up the nisle and an orchestra of
those little tiddler crabs, with seaweed
dripping all nround. She even wanted
me to have my wedding dress trimmed
with dingle shells and seaweed."
"Lucy certainly Is romantic," I observed soothingly. "Do let me see
your wedding gown, MIbh Maria, lf It
ls ready."
"It's all done; It's here ln the spore
room." This Kplnster of forty-flve
years unemotionally led the way to
the little bedroom Hint opened off the
Rifting room und prepared to show me
her simple trousseau.
The weddlug dress was of gray silk,
pearly grny und almost stiff enough to
stand alone. It was mnde simply, but
I knett it would lie becoming to Maria,
who wns plump nnd pink cheeked,
with soft browu balr nnd dark eyes.
"It Is lovely." I said, kissing the
bride to be on both pink cheeks.
"Don't fret about Lucy Drake. I know
it's going to be the loveliest wedding
you ever saw!"
"I'm worried nbout It Just the same,
Mlss Tellium. I haven't (old you all
there Is to It Lucy hus been tensing
Ihe captain lo hnve Orville Beers for
his best man. She's keeping company
with Orville."
"Is tbe captnln willing?"
"Meivy. no! Orville and him ain't
spoke for twenty years. Seems he and
(he captain were both after the name
girl In the days I mean, and Orville got
her.   Of i*m*ra�� thn-innfulp trot cil at��
It, only he's always been mad nt Orville becauae he got (he best or him.
Orville's wife died Inst spring, and he'*
been after Lucy Drake. She hinted
thnt she'd rather bave a while silk
dress because she could use It later for
her own wedding."
When 1 was alone I conld not resist
a heurty laugh at the thriftiness of
Lucy Drake. She was Marin's age.
but the difference In the (wo women
was marked. Maria In her blunt, plain
wuy seemed to behold her marriage to
Captain Fish us the start of n new
life, a life of congenial. afTectinnalo
companionship, wltb a placid happiness
tbat should lust them during the remainder of their half lived lives. Her
love for the bundsome old enptnin was
sincere to the core. Her contempt for
the foolish romantic uotlons of Lucy
Drake wus equally sincere, l was
vexed at Lucy for Intruding her notions in the midst of Maria's quiet little
wedding preparations.
The wedding was set for Thursday
evening, and because Maria's bouse
was small and because everybody lu
Quince Harbor would expect lo witness tlie marriage of two such popular
persons. It was decided to hold the ceremony In the church. Captain Flsh
had ordered pa I (DM and white (lowers
from (he Sinlthvllle florist to decorute
tiie church.
In the meantime Lucy Drake darted
ln and out of the house her thin cheeks
pink with excitement her straight fair
hair Hying wildly alxiut. She wus
brimming over with a hundred suggestions to eubauce the novelty of the occasion.
"You'll only be married once. Maria."
she urged.
"I hope so." retorted Maria loftily.
"Do as you please about your own
wedding, Lucy, but leave mine alone,
please." v
"A double wedding would bave
been romantic," murmured Lucy regretfully.
"Vou nud Orville settled It then?"
Maria's eyes seemed to be relieved. I
wondered If she did not barbor a small
Jealousy uf l.ucy Drake.
"Yes��� look:" Lucy held out a thin
scraggy bund and displayed on the
third flnger of her left hand n large
amethyst r'uit. "It belonged to his first
wife," she murmured sentimentally.
"I'll help you get up a big wedding.
Lucy." said Maria generously.
Lucy gave ber a queer look. "You
can remember what you said niier
ward," she said und turning on Uer
beel, walked nut.
"Whet did sbe mean?" I asked.
Maria shrugged her plump shoulders
"I don't know. She's ncted queer
about this wedding business from tlie
beginning. She told somebody ihnt
she had always said she would be married before I was aud she would yet
���I can't see how she's going lo manage it."
Captain Fish asked my advice about
the  wedding  garments  he must  wear
and  1   answered  blm frankly, putting
nslde  I.uey  Drake's suggestion <>f  Hm*
1 "marine   wedding"   nod   taking   Into V

cusloms of  Quince  Harbor  weddings
of the past.    Beyond that he made uo
allusion to any doubts he might bave

ideas concerning weddings ln general
nnd bis In particular.
Thursday  was a  hurricane of wind
and rain und not a soul ventured to
cross   (he  long road  thut   led   to  the
west side.   Maria had no near relatives
nnd so I assisted ber to dress for tier
wedding.     It  cleared  nt  six   o'clock,
and we hetrtX the wheels of the carriage grinding (brotigb the wet sand
to tbe gate.   The ceremony was to be
at half-past six nnd tbe reception was
to   be  beld   after  tbe  return   of  the
cnptaln und his bride from their honeymoon.
"I went over to Lucy's, but the house
wns all locked up. so I guess sbe has
gone���but I didn't bear nny can-Inge.

knowledge be was a plain farmer and

People were gathered about Lucy
and Orville, and there was mucb chatting and buzzing, and It waa not until I drew nearer that 1 realized wnat
had happened.
Lucy Drake hod taken advantage of
the early gathering of wedding guests
to be married to Orville Beers then
nnd there. Tbat ceremony was over.
Lucy was married first after all, nnd
for her the wedding decorations had
i congratulated the couple with ns
good grace as my indignation would
allow and heard Marin quietly following ault. Tbe people crowded back
Into the church, and Orville Beers
tiptoed sqneaklly np tbe aisle to take
his place beside Captain Hnrnnlms. I
