Precedence Among Servants���"oot
man Gives Duchess a Lesson.
French footmen are rising up in
protest against the wearing of livery
Yet it was once considered an ornament, almost  a coat of arms.
When the Marquis of Genlis found
that one of his servants was a pois-
er, instead of delivering him up to
justice, he gave him notice, after having had him ceremoniously unfrocked. "Burn that suit," was his order;
"no servant would care to wear it
after him."
In those times the servants' hall
Jealously kept np a certain table of
precedence, headed by the chaplain
and descending to the footmen, who
"were expected to do obeisance to the
principal domestics." The Duchess
de Lillian wis given a little lesson in
this table by one of her footmen.
Coming back from a walk, she exclaimed, "I'm dying of hunger! Quick,
bring me something to eat'."
A footman vnaa present, but he oaly |
knit his brows.    Not  an  inch did  ho
stir.   The duchess reiterated her com-
I mand angrily.    The footmin stood as
still as a statue.    Finally he uttered
I these words with the solemnity of a
Judge; "The steward is not here." H3
; knew his duty;  the duchess had for-
I gotten hers.    She had to continue dv-
i ing of hunger, as her steward was not
After dressing their master ln tho
morning the valets found time hang-
i lng heavily on their hands, wherefote
Abbe Fletiry In 1688 advised them to
study mathematics, music, drawing
and surgery in the.r leisure moments.
He considered that such pursuit i
were quite as congenial to their profession as the arts of hail dressing,
tailoring and  upholstering.
Tirewomen, observed the good abbe, should refrain from decorating the
hair of their mistress more than they
were positively ordered to. Besides
this, "let them avoid balls, comedies,
and especially the opera, if they are
not obliged to accompany their mistress there, and If she does compel
them to attend, and that often, let
them not stay long ln her service."
Valuta and maids were not always
content to wait for the cast-o.7 clothing of their masters and mistresses,
and sometimes anticipated the event.
They felt that they made part of the
family, and were entitled to take tho
initiative. So It was that Abbe Fuse*,
thinking In 1775 Ihat he was approaching the end of hls life, bad a leaden
coif in brought into his room, and then
said lo hls valet: "Here Is my last
coat. I hope It. will not entei' your
head to rob mo Of this one."���I.e journal des Debuts

The happiest day in my life was
When Alun Constable proposed to me.
1 h;:d been expecting a declaration for
weeks, and perhaps this added, to my
delight. Alan is a. steady, slow going
fellow, who never does anything iu a

There is a girl In this town who was
once engaged to Alan. I met her at
Carrie Watson's last week. Hev name
ls Wentworth���Kate Wentworth���nnd
from all appearances she must be a
lovely girl. At any rate, Kate saya she
ls. It must have been embarrassing
for Miss Wentworth to meet me,
knowing thut I was engaged to tbe
man who wns once her lover, but she
didn't show It. Kate says she has got
all over that affair long ago. She said
something else I didn't like���that Kate
wouldn't marry Alan now if he were
worth ten millions.
I haven't been able to sleep nlshts
since I heard that Kate Wentworth
wouldn't now marry Alan If she
could. I spoke to Alan about hls old
flame, and he snld that he didn't care
to discuss the matter. 1 wonder why.
There certainly can't be anything
about it that he's ashamed of. Yet
what Carrie said about it troubles
me. That a girl formerly betrothed
to the man one Is to marry wouldn't
marry him if he had $10,000,000 ls
not a pleasant thing for his present
fiance to bear. Suppose he has some
Weak or bad spot In blm thnt She happened to flnd out. Pshaw! I resolve

I trent to caff on Carrie tho other
day and asked her whut she meant
by Baying tbat Kate Wentworth
wouldn't marry Alan now. Kate sal.I
Bh<> didn't know. When I Urged her
to tell me something about It Fhe said
she never mixed herself up In other
people's affairs. .So I let the matter
drop. Just ns I wus about to leave
ber she Baid that out of pure frleml-
���ttip for ne .he would tell me something sir* thought I should know.
Then r*\io told me tbat Kate hnd bro
ken off hr>r engagement wilh Alan because lie hnd treated her shamefully.
I asked what (he shameful treatment
hild (onsi.-ited ln, to which she replloj
thnt there were so many things that
sbe didn't cafe to name thetn, and
Kate wouldn't ('nre to have her do so.

heal whit Carrie had told me about
bh tre.-iluienl of Krte Wentworth. Al
last I told him about lt. Instead of
hurling back the accusation like u
man, he didn't even deny It. All Le
���old woi thut I Iind nothing to do
wilh hls previous iiff.ilni of the heart
no:- ba wilh mine. That's nil he would
say ubout It. Then 1 told him that if
men things were not cleared up before marriage (hey would lie a thorn
in our sides after marriage, and so
lo:;g ns he wouldn't give me nny snt-
lafai tlon In the matter we had better
coll our engagement off. To this he
agre'd. 1 gave him back my beautiful ring. And oh. hiw I did hate to
part with lt!   I'm very miserable.

Certain weeping Jeremiahs have
mounted to the top pessimistic poultry perch to prophesy that the poultry business Is'soon going to be over-
done-thls fn fuce of tbe fact thai
the world Is hungry for fresh eggs
and chicken and never bave poultry
products commanded such high prices.
Last year New York alone consumed
33.0C0 miles of eggs, these 1.410.000.
000 eggs selling for as high as lfi
cents per do7.eu when strictly fresh
nnd still there was demand. In 1010
Furls got away with 20,000 tons ol
poultry nnd 21,000 tons of eggs, and
the market was short. Last year Ger
many produced 270,000 tons of poultrj
nnd eggs nnd quit exporting because
of scarcity at home, while England
has the "high strikes" because she
can't produce enough eggs for home
consumption nnd nations on whom
she depended have quit exporting.
Dedprocity or no reciprocity. Canada ls yelling for f:esh eggs, and prices
there were so much higher last your
than in this country that over 1.000.-
000 eggs were shipped ncross.

How  Soldiers   at   Kashing    Enforced
Magistrate's Orders.
A week or so ago our Pen Fu ordered every man's Queue Cut off.
Many at once did so, but the business
men were opposed- Also some other
classes. So the magistrate wrote a
conciliatory proclamation, delaying
the time a few days. Then he resorted to the method, qf appointing a
great gathering of'Chinese of all sbrt9
especially the soldiers, at the Hashing Fu .Sciiool.-     ������ -  ���   ��� i tm-}
The only requirement for entrance
was a "queueless head." About 1000
were present. Then Fu himself with
his officers appeared before the people and gave an account of the
history of the Kuh-mintang movements in Hashing. One of the most
interesting features of the occasion
was the presentation of the volunteers
of a number of goodly presents, from
rice in quality to dressed pigs and
other delicacies of all sorts. This for
their faithfulness to the cause and a
mark of the respect and sympathy of
the people who were In and around
But all the above methods failed to
secure the shopmen's queues and also those of many other people. So
finally the magistrate set a day and
proclaimed that every man not having
his queue off by the time set. wruld
be compelled to cut the badge of Manchu servitude off and relegate it to
tbe waste basket.
So in due season soldiers were stationed at the gate recently and many-
were the queues sacrificed. Many
I were the howls of some of those
whoEe dignity, in their estimation,
was thus lost forever! The writer
passed along the street lately and
could not see a single queue. So the
Fu has proved his words!
There is a wild enthusiasm for foreign hats, overcoats, cloth, and everything of this nature. A good tailor
might make a good thing of it here.���

perhaps the extremists would be sac-
lstieu if a man wore a ring is well a3
the woman���the practice on the Continent.   Perhaps tney will some day.'
In England it ia not the custom for meu to wear such rings, and
that is the anBwor given whenever the
suggestion is brought forward. But
it doeB not follow that what is not th3
custom now should not be the custom
next year, or next week for that matter. It is the age of progress, ancl It
would surely be a matter of progression wero boom definite rule la.ddow.i
that when a man marries ho should
carry som ��� t.'dfio which would Identify hlm lrom his single brethren.
There uiu a ceitain number of Be'.-
cher rilles worn by men, sometime*
on the l.Kirth, or little Unger, and
sometimes un the third linger of the
left hand. These rings are very
broad, plain circlets of gold, and morj
ofton than not are affected b.v bachelors, merely aa an ornament, In a fe*-
cases they aro used as wedding rings
by men. Well-known firms oi jewel-
era aay that the proportion of wedding rings sold in pairs, that is, on?
for the bridegroom and one for tha
bride, Is comparatively small.
But when a foreigner marries an
Englishwoman ho very often orders
two tings; when two foreigners marry
in England it Ib generally Ihe i ule for
each of them to hive a ring. Therefore, it la to foreigners living in [England that wedding rings for men ara
largely sold. The man's ring Is much
narrower Uiun tho "llclcher" ring,
and, therefore, once the. difference between the two Btyles became' generally known il could not be confound-
ed with It.
In days gone by���In the sixteenth
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries
���when people were not po m.it ter offset as they are now and had more
time, i>��fhapa. to think of sentiment,
It was the fashion lo have a motto or
"posy" engraved inside of the wedding
ring; many beautiful thoughts were
hidden away under the plain gold
circlet which adorned a woman's
hand. Many, no doubt, are familiar
with the French motto, "Apres Dion
��'est loi que, Je t'uiine," and perhaps
the Kngiish motto is somewhat similar, "In Gol and thee all comfort be."
Another poBy reads, "In weal and
woo my love I'll show," and "Joy and
care let vn take shurc," and most
praiseworthy Is the wish, "I,ovo and
respect I do expect." which Is the expectation of every wife, no doubt, The
posy, "liove Is sure where filth Is
pure," Ii another beautiful sentiment,
ajid equally so, "Nol mine, nor thine,
but ourB;" a slightly different version
reads, "Not two, but one, till life be
done." An inscription found in a.i
old wedding riir; ran, "Virtue pnflsetb
ricbec," anl in another, "Whllai life
is myn my heart ia tbyn," and ii Is to

The employees of Lee's Limited roll- !
ed a friendly natch last night,    the
upper   floor competing    against    the
lower floor.    The    latter   team    had
somewhat the better of the argument,
nnd (Onslderlng most of the boys were ,
making   their   initial1 appearance   in)
this great Indoor sport,   the   scoring
was  very goofi.    Another match wlll
be arranged later on, after the teams

In the scene that follows between
father and mother there Is a debate
as to whether the son is dead forever
ae the New Religion teaches, or
whether h6 lives as the mother believes and aB the old religion to
which she has always clung has toll
O, Death, Where ts Thy Sting.
The curtain falls on this scene:
Mary���I forbid you to imake   this
dark world darker.   Blow out the last
star ^nd I  will  follow you into the
,    Stephen���You?
Mary���Yes, I. Let them hea* a
woman for once. You and your dried-
up thinkers! I tell you that the great
.live world will never take your religion, and that even if you deluded
all male humanity the mothers would
rise un and tear it to pieces.
I (Stephens turns silently and resumes
his walk to the door.) Go 'into your
pulpit, then. But���over the body of
your boy���I dare you to tell them hd

I Stephens (turning, as at bay)���And
will you there tell them he Is alive?
Mary (In trumpet tones)���I will tell
them that this corruptible shall put on
lncorruptlon and this mortal Immortality, and 'I will cry, "Oh, death,
where is thy sting? Oh, grave, where
Is thy victory?"
(Stephen, hls head bowed as beneath the storm, opens the door. The
triumphant requiem bursts out from
organ and choir: "Rejoice, the righteous cannot die.")
Stephen (raising his head)���Wilfred's music!  (He goes In firmly.)

uplifting it, her face ecstatically transfigured, her voice dominant even over
the organ)���The Resurrection and the

Feminine   Phyllis.
Women are becoming more woman-,
ly and are giving up many of the mannish tricks which they have acquired
in recent years.
Phyllis I have looked upon for year
aa a divinity
In spite of sundry lapses into ways
described as mannish,
So I'm glad to be Informed of her return to femininity,
And to learn that very shortly these
absurdities will  vanish.
For months she's worn one trouser-leg
which outlines with temerity
That form divine of which lt hides
much less than <t expresses,
But   since   I  know  she's   shapely, I
shall welcome with sincerity
A trifle less publicity and    candor
' in her dresses.
i ;
She used to go a-hunting ln a costuma
wl^ose affinity
To breeches was notorious because j
she rode astraddle,
But now she has abandoned that   attempt at masculinity,
And once more has adopted the Vic-
torian side-saddle.
She's shed her beetle-crushing boots
whose heels were rudlmentarv, j
And resumed the shoes and stock- '.
ings which she once describe.! |
as silly,
But happily it's needless to continue
the inventory.
Throughout she'll soon be frivolous
and frilly.

Certain Passages Likely to Give Offence to Established Church.
Zangwlll's latest play. "The New
Religion," has been forbidden by the
British censor, who objected to certain passages as being likely to give
offence to the Established Church. |
The play will be produced in the United States, and is very likely t:> visit
Canada. Both the fame of its author
���and the action of the Reader of Playj |
will contribute to lta success, and

.this that made "The Christian" so
jopular, anl although the "Servant in
the House" lacked what is called
���"heart interest," it was strikingly original ln conception, nnd was helped

<aste of performers. "The New Religion" offers powerful roles for i
man and a woman, antl It would not
be Zangwill's work if the dialogue
were ��iot brilliant.
The Rector Without Faith.
The story opens in the bouse of
Rev. Stephen Tramc, the rector of a
country parish in Kngland. To hlm
comes Hal McFadden. an old friend
of the Oxforl days, who asks Tram*
If he wlll perform his marriage ceremony. He Ib astonished, to learn that
Trame, who was once full ot belief,
has ceased to accept the doctrine that
he preaches, and though he does not
flinch from reading the marrlaga
vows to the bumpkins of his parish,
he would not insult his friend, as a
man of intellect, by mumbling words
that have no meaning to either of
them. In the discussion that follows
Trame's conception of true religion is
presented. It Is, ho says, the rells-
ion all honest men are comlsg to the
religion that accepts the Revelation of
Science. He does net believe In prayer, and the supernatural or the mystical plays no part ln the religious beliefs he Is slowly evolving.
Darkness and Dawn.
Trame's wife,  Mary,  the  daughter
of a colonial bishop, seeks to dissuade him from  publicly declaring his
views, and for a while he yields to
her. but eventually he gives up   his
living anl    goes    to London, having
In the meantime written the book that
Is  to  revolutionize  religious   beliefs.
The   family   Is   reduced   to  extreme
poverty, for thero hus been little demand for tho book, which merely accomplishes the  purpose of having a
couple of teachers   who ventured   to
approve of It thrown out of employment.    Trame's cup of bitterness is
filled   when  he  learns   that all   the
rofifs of his hook but one have been
bought up by his wife's father, who,
ln   the interest  of  religion  and   hla
own  i ood   name, means   to   destroy
them.    But the darkest hour ib lust

The railway companies are also
bound not to apply to have their
works declared to be for the general
advantage of Canada.
This provision actB as a bar to prevent .the Dominion Government aiding
the construction of these lines of railway, with the result that Instead of
the whole or the greater portion of
the aid needed being contributed by
the Dominion, tbe whole burden has to
be borne by the province.
Another eftect of these works being

Powers of Attorney Used to  Subvert
the Law,
We have a provision in our statutes
which prohibits the sale to any person of more than 640 acres of public
lands. This for the purpose of preventing.* Ippd monopoly. The government have knowingly connived at and
assisted in nullifying this provision
of the Btatute.
The methods adopted ate: Any pert
son, syndicate, or corporation wishing
to obtain large areas of public lands,
supply themselves with blank forma
of powers of attorney. They ijext secure the signatures to these powers
of attorney of persons (either male or
female) who have not heretofore applied to purchase landa in B. C.
Many of the signatures bo obtained
are of persons residing in Eastern Canada and in the cities of the United
States. So far as any precautions
taken by the government are concerned, the names may be entirely fictitious.
The next process ls to hire an ajjent
to stake the lands in such names.
They have been credibly informed
that men employed by the government
ln surveying publlc lands have at the
same time been receiving pay from
land speculators as agents for staking the very lands they were engaged
to survey for the government.
This whole process of acquiring
public lands Is carried to completion
in the names of the persons who have
Bigned the powers of attorney (in consideration of a drink or a dollar or
sometimes both), but the speculator
gets possession of the Crown Grant
and he is able by virtue of hls rower
of attorney to transfer the lands to
any person he sees flt.
In my possession are details of one
transaction whereby one little buncn
of speculators were enabled to oo-
tain permission from the minister to
purchase lands aggregating 42,800
acres. They were allowed ample
time to send to their agent In England, who gave an option on this syndicate's holdings. This option was

lazy to develop it skilfully to obtain

sites nnd    1280   acres   for divisional
points.   These lands not used for rail
way purposes are to be free from tax
I will, however, request your serious attention to tho following facts,
and what they imply:
In 1905 the government sold 50,101
acres of land.
In lt'iir,. U25.8S3 acres of land. i
In 1907, 211,650 acres of land.
In 1908. 181,211 acres of land.
ln 1909, 645,389 acres of land.
in 1910, 2,006,173 .acres of land.
In 1911, 918,669 acres of land, or a
total of 4,238,976 acres. During tho
Bume period the government deeded
only 1,994,614 acres.
Here we have the fnct that the
quantity of land lold and not deeded
has been Increased during the years
mentioned by 2,244,462 acres.
Assuming that 5(1 per cent of the
land sold was first-class land (and as
these land* are chiefly picked lands
along the valleys to bo traversed by
linos of railroad, 1 think that la a
low estimate) wo find that the purchase price thereof would be $15,896,-

other i laces, lt must be quite apparent that thero are many millions of
C* liars whLth should rightly be In
the treasury and which are really ln
tho pockets of ro.il estate speculators.
Another featuto. The province Is losing the tares rn this 2,244,462 acres of
undeedod land, which If assessed ns
wild lands nnd at the lowest price for
which ftovcrnment lands are now for
Bale would produce $488,892 per annum. This amounl of nearly hnlf a
million   dollars per annum   is being
than twelve millions of dollars
The present market values of the
special timber licences alone is approximate* at upwards of two hundred millions of dollars. The loss to
the province on timber alone would
more than bulld all the railways
which the McBride Government has
contracted to aid.
You will be told that the government have not sold the timber, that
the licences only convey the lights to
cut, that the Legislature can increase the royalties at any time, all ot
which statements are partly true.
But notwithstanding all this, these licences to cut are being transferred
in the open market at prices up to
$40 per acre and the shrewdest investors In America are paying these
prices in cash, and the difference between the amount received by the
province and that received by the vendors of these speculative licences U
the measure of the loss the province
has suffered up to the present time.
Coal Resources Handed to Speculators
The government have deliberately
deceived the people ln respect to tho
coal lands ln B. C. Aa a party they
stood pledged to the reservation ot a
portion of every coal area so that
state-owned coal mines could be operated If necessary. k   >
Up to the present as far as I have
been able to ascertain, not one acre
of coal land has been reserved by the
Early ln 1908 over 529,000 acres of
coal land had been alienated and such
alienation ls being lavishly extended
to speculatorB.
Finance* Bolstered Up by Selling Resources.
Great credit ls clnlrr*O. nnd too
much given to the ecvernment on account of tho allocation mnde that the?
havo rescued the Province from a
sta^e of bankruptcy and planed It up-
dallars which the government should
have collected and did not in the
shape of taxation. The government
also repurchased from the Columbia
& Western Railway 1,500,000 acres on
similar terms. The government have
also made an arangement with the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway company whereby the province will lose
a large amount in taxation.
Weltern Expenditures
The government's wasteful and extravagant expenditure demonstrates
the fact that they cannot realize the
same degree of efficiency or value for
their outlay as is possible under private management. There Is a very
lar;e preventable waste.
Contracts are let, changes made,
and extras allowed which often more
than double the amount which thc
works should cost.
I In tbis electoral district much better results could be obtained if tin
moneys expended by the government were expended under the different municipal councils.
Whilst I am referring to government expenditure in the electoral district of Delta, let me say that I am
quite well aware that in former years
when I had the honor to represent
jyou ln the Legislature the government
deliberately starved the district.
I well remember that in 1906 only
$2500 was voted for Delta and that in
1907 the magnificent sum ot $1100
was voted, and that ln 1908 another
vote of $1500 was passed. I am also
well aware that for the coming year
$85,000 has been voted and lt may be
that should you again elect me that
the government would again penalize
you tn a similar manner, and it may
also be that there are some amongst
you who will be swayed by such considerations. All I wish to say to you
on that point is that you should consider whether men who would so penalize a constituency which does not
approve of their actions, are big
enough to have charge of the destinies of this province.
Frankly, I say to you that I should
prefer to see the public moneys expended upon roads for the beneflt of
resident producers who are giving
their lives In clearing bur lands an I
making them productive, rather than
upon paved highways tor the enjoy-
ment of motorists, among the wealthy,
and often foreign tourist.
Grave Neglect of Public Accounts.
Tnere has been no examination bv
Ithe legislature of the public accounts
for years past; many public worka
have cost double the contract price.
No enquiry as to the reason has been
made, The government does not even
give Information asked for.
As an Instance I cite that when In
Victoria recently I waa Informed that
$105,C00 had been raid to Mr. H. 8.

Women's Suffrage. .L_We eofideCW the present education
I am strongly In favor of extending
to Women the right to vote.   It is a
monstrous and absurd theory that
the women whom we consider competent to care for our family life, and
ui on whom devolves the greater portion of the most practical educa'.lon of
our children���who in the future will
form a majority of ihe voters as well
as of the law makers of our country���
are denied the right to vote, while the
ignorant foreigners who can neither
read, write, nor understand our language,���to say nothing of understanding our national institution*���can by
taking out naturalization papers, become entitled to the greatest right ^��^
now denied to our owtt mothers,'
wives, sisters and daughters. If our
young ladles would just make op
their minds to say No ! to every pro>-
posal of marriage until they were accorded the rights so freely offered to
naturalized foreigners there would
soon be a change ln this respect.

their own remedy, on the ground that
it would embarras tho Couservative

We stand for a white British Columbia and advocate continually increasing stringency in Immigration lawa
