' __________
Bartenders   Discontented   with   New
Clauses Concerning Interdicted
Persons���Lively Meeting.
Important subjects were discussed
with nunc warmth at a well attended
meeting of the Trades and Labor
count 11 lust night. The debato wus
enlivened by the presence of some
Socialists, and at times the chairman
had hard work to keep tho speakers
ln or.!er.
Mr. 11. I). Grant Introduced the question of the high price of coal, and
brought forward a strong array of
figures to prove that Instead of coal
being sold for $7.50 u ton in New
Westminster, it should not cost more
than lift ween $5.00 and $6.00. It, waB

waterworks, waited on Mayor Lee yesterday. They came, to dlscuBB the
question of getting' a temporary supply of water from this city for their
South Vancouver has been hard put
to lt for water for some time now, as
the f.ui'jly the municipality receives
from the city of Vancouver is very
often Inadequate, an.l tbe high levels
receive at times but a scanty supply
of water, and during the dry months
practically none at all, outside of
what they can get from the wells sunk
noar the municipal hall. Nothing
definite could be arranged yesterday,
but the water committee will take the
matter up tbls morning at 10 o'clock
and see what they can do to afford
South Vancouver some relief ln this
matter. '

'Ih�� delegates who attended the B.
C. Federation of Labor presented
their re;ort to the meeting, and
stnted that Premier Mclirlde had
promised to reply In the near future
to the resolutions laid before him by
the federation. Interest was added to
the proceedings nt this point by the
announcement thai the Harten'trs'
union bad decided to have nothing to
do with the Ii. C, Federation of Labor.
Much trouble has arisen as u result
of tlie new law hro-.ight down by thu
government regarding interdicted persons, it was the desire of the bartenders that the new law should ma!;o
nny interdicted parson hanging about
a har Habic to a $50 fine, but instead
of this tlie act provides for a fine of
$20 against the bat tender about whoBe
bar the interdicted one lonfi. lt was
pointed out that no bartender could
know nil Huch ) ersons in u city by
sight, and that therefore this fine waa
very tin'ust.
Tho question of employing union
lalio-- cn all public contracts was next
brought up, and committees were appointed to interview the city council
and tao school board with the object
of having union labor clauses inserted
in uli contracts, lt vvas considered
that the ;.aj ment of a union wage was
not enough' but that union men must
bo cm:lo.ied. incidentally it was pointed out that tlie Masonic Temple was
being built by all non-union men receiving tbe union wage. As this contractor, however, was a Vancouver
man the council thought they could -do
nothing In the matter.
Another difficulty that has been experienced In the past Is that there I-
no i.lasterers' union In the city, ond
consequently it ls Impossible for a
contractor to employ only union men
on a building Job. Accordingly a
committee was appointed to loo?. Into
the matter, and try and organize u
new local for the plasterers in tbis
A resolution was passed condemning the action of the Vancouver officials towards the working people of
Vancouver in the matter of free
speech, and the pollcy employed there
waa the subject of some strong criticism.
Finally lt was resolved that each
delegate refer to their locals with the
object of ensuring that all union men
see thut only union teamsters deliver
goods at their houses.
Tipperary Square Again.
Tipierary square ls receiving much
public, attention Just at present, and
the question of building a high school
on this site came up for discussion st
this meeting n>nln. Speakers aonflned
themselves to the question of principle, .ind it was the unanimous opinion of those piesent that the question
should be put to the people again before any decision were taken. A resolution to tiiis effect was passed, anJ
will be sent to the city council.   An-

deputies adopted the naval program
last night by a vote of 462 to 73.
M. Delcasse, minister of marine, ln
submitting the proposals, said that
France must bave enough warships to
insure security In the Mediterranean,
but that it was not necessary to keep
pace with the construction activities
of other nations.
An additional article was adopted
prohibiting the giving of government
contracts to Arms which have, or
have had within a year, members ot
the senate or chamber of deputies on
their directorate or as ltgal counsel.
The senate adopted the aviation program, for which an appropriation of
$5,000,000 yearly is asked.
The trend of the discussion ln
both Houses was that France must
strongly develop all lines of defence
and offence, so as to hold her rank
among the great powers and maintain
her allowances, thus exercising an influence ln the world of peace.

Authority on  Banking  Declares  Independence of Banka.
Mr. H. M. P. Eckhardt, who ls rec-
ognlzed ln Canada as somewhat of an
authority on banking and financial
matters has an interesting article in
Saturday Night, on the popular belief
that a bank is obliged to redeem its
notes in gold on dtiiv.uul. He taken
as his text the experience of a lady
who presented a ten dollar note of a
certain bunk ut one of Its branches located ln a country town and asked for
a gold piece of the sums denomination ln exchange. The manager of tho
branch Informed her that he had no
gold on hand ut the moment, but that
he would send for a coin if she wished
him to do so. lhe coin was sent for
and ln delivering it to the customer
the bank charged ten cents to cover
cost of transporting the money.
About this charge a difference of
opinion exists, says the writer. The
bank officials considered lt light and
proper; otherwise lt would not have
been made. The customer and others
consider that the bank should have
made no charge. They base their
opinion on the belief that the bunk
should stand ready to pay gold for its
notes when gold is demanded. This
belief, by the way, ls widely held.
Many people consider that according
to Canadian law the banks aro under
obligation to redeem their notes In
gold lf the note holders insist upon
gold. But this ls entirely wrong. A
bank's note, while ln circulation, represents a debt of tho bank. The bank
Is the debtor; the h >lder of the note
is the creditor.
Legal   Tender.
Now, the law has designate! certain
forms of money as "legal tender.' It
says distinctly, that If any debtor ton-1
ders payment of his debt at its ma-
turlty ln any of these forms of legal I
tender his creditor ls bound to accept
the payment and discharge tho debt.
A debtor may offer rayment of his
debt as follows: In the copper or
bronze coins of th^ Dominion of Canada���up to 25 cents; ln tb-3 sliver
coins of the Dominion of Canada���up
to ten dollara���ln Dominion notes���up
to an unlimited amount and In United
States gold coins���up to an unlimited amount. A bank has the same right
or privilege as another debtor. When
a creditor presents its notes at a
place where they are payable, it cau
tender payment In any of the above
forms of legal tender, viz., In silver,
up to ten dollars; in Dominion notes,
Hritish gold coins or United Statea
gold coins, to an unlimited amount. So
it is clear that even if the law required a Canadian chartered bank to
redeem its notes at all of Its branches
the bank need not pay ln gold.
At the Branches.
But the law does not require a bank
to redeem Its notes at ail branches.
A section of the Bank Act reads -is
"The bank shall make such arrangements as are necessary to ensure the circulation at par, in any and
every part ot Canada ot all notes issued or re-lasued by lt and Intended
for circulation; and towards this purpose tbe bunk sball establish agencies
for the redemption and payment of tts
notes at 'Toronto, Montreal. Halifax,
St. John, Winnipeg, Victoria, Ch-ir-
lottetown, and at such other places as
are from time to time designated by
the treasury board."
In the draft bill introduced by tho
1 late   government   for   renewing   the
Bank Act, Regina and Edmonton wero
added to this list.
While it is not expressly stated, tho
obligation to redeem their note issues
at all these points, by means of
branches or redemption agencies, is
here placed by implication upon th.)
banks. A following sub-section states
that "the chief place of business of
the places at which Its notes ore made
So, according to the  Bank Act, one
might say that the notes of any Canadian bank are payable at the  cities
named above and also at Its chief or
principal    branch    lf  auch    principal
branch is in  some city   other   than
those named.   The bank Is under ob-1
ligation to redeem Its notes ll. e��� pay-
cash for them), when presented at its
branches or agencies in these cities.
So far aB other branches are concern I
ed, its duties in connection   with its j
note issue nre covered by the follow-!
lng section:    "The bank shall always!
receive in payment its own notes.  At i
par at any of Its offices, and whether I
they are made payable there or not." !
That is, It muBt receive them at par j
on deposit or ln payment of debts due
the bank.
How an Enemy Might Score.
Manifestly, It would not do to compel tlie banks to give legal tender a.*. I
all or any branches for any quantity
of notes that might be presented, lf
that were the lay au enemy of th��
bank might throw it Into Insolvency |
through collecting a large number of
its own notes and presenting them at
a small, out-of-the-way brunch with a
demand for legal tender. It would
not do to have the whole note Issue of
a bank payable at every small office
established by It.
So, It ls cl?ar that the manager of
the branch hank referred to at the be-
ginnine. of this article was under no
obligation to pay eo'd on demand for
a ton .lollar note of the bank. Legally,
his 'iranch was not under obligation
to redeem the note fi, e.. to pay fo."
It), though lt was obligated to receive
it at par on .Jcposit or in pivment. of
a debt due to the ban'?. The request
for a gold coin, therefore, presented a request, by the customer for the
bank to undertake a special financial
transaction, which consisted, ln bringing a piece of gold from another

New York, Feb. 14.���With only one
split sail as a memento of bey long
voyage, one of America's biggest
ships, the Dirlgo, quietly entered port,
completing a trip around tape liorn
tbat consumed 143 days. During all
of that time she waB not spoken once
or sighted by other craft until three
days ago, wben her squat e rigging, a
distinguishing leature, was recognlze.l

irom for ho long that tfiere was fear
she might h.ivo been loBt.
While other ships met mishaps In
tho treacherous weather thut swept
along the Atlantic coast during the
lust three weeks, the sturdy Dliigo, remained straight ln her course and
sail edsteudlly along, to arrive hjre
yeslerday with the report that only
the ship's cat had dropped overboard
when seas that appeared like mountains dashed upon her decks.
Incidentally the voyage of the Dl-
/l'���o'thut ended yesterday is to be the
last around Cape Horn to bo maJe by
Captain Walter Mallett, her master,
who will retlro from tho sea when his
present cargo Is discharged. He has
made the passage thlrty-flVe t.mes,
which Is only ten times mere than
his wlfo, who his made twonty-flve

America. They will go to Hath, Me.,

it was not until the trip up the Atlantic coast began that tne cat disappeared, tne animal just dropped out

to disappear.but the others, two pigs

How Labby Worked.
In one of his stories Henry James
speaks of a man who had tlu charm
of beins; always at home. Mr. Labouchere certainly possessed this
charm, for he was always, except
when at the House of Commons-
he rarely went to office of Truth���to
oe found ln his library. He smoked,
lie read, he wrote, he talked. He
never walked but he kept himself ln
good health hy eating veiy modeiataly j
and drank nothing. Occasionally hls
doctor would urge him to take a glass
of burgundy for lunch or dinner, and I
ae always forgot it untll Mrs. Labou-r

An   Ideal   Companion.
As a companion be was Ideal, restful, cheerful, agreeable .ml interested
In every topic i nder the sun. Nothing and nobody bored him. The ^vorkl
ln whic!'. be was so vital a factor and
his own rich mind filled bim wita
amusement and content Even when
suffering from gout hlr temper remained of the sweetest, and in uli the
yeara in which' I knew him so intimately. I r.ever once saw him cioss,
disagreeable ir depressed. He was
the most forgiving of cynics, and ho
really loved hla kind.
'There was never a greater philosopher than he. and there wero no circumstances in life, no matter bow
tragic or how grim, that he could not
Illumine with his humor. During tao
siege of Paris, while suffering from
positive hunger, he wrote home to
Mrs. Labouchere when the authorities
began to levy contributions from Mt.
Zao for food:
"Camel soup, though somewhat
woolly, ts not half bad. Dut stewed
mongoose ls appalling. Last week I
managed to get a chicken from a German by telling him that my mother
waft dying, 'i he way to h German's
heart is through his mother, or even
grandmother. You must make the appeal to a Frenchman through hls
sweetheart. This is the dlnereuce between the two nations."
He waB the soul of hospitality, nothing pleased htm better than company.
Mrs. Labouchere used to say he not
only liked dinners and luncheons, but
delighted ln balls. There was no small
act of hers that did not interest him,
and she consulted htm about everything. They differed widely In disposition and often in their point of view.
Many arguments were the lesult, but
1 never saw two people have a better
understanding. Indeed an argument
was tne breath of his life, for with
his ready wit and his power ot seeing
an sl.es of a question, he generally
routed his adversary.
Friend of Home Rule.
Underneath his wit and whimsicality he had an iron will, great  common sense and   strong   and   definite
opinions. He always believed ln Home
Rule and Irishmen never possessed a
l more loyal or serviceable friend.   He
j had a great admiration for Parneil and
I was at his resourceful best when  he
j exposed the forgeries  of Plgott   and
I forced from him his dramatic confes-
, sion.

' stone  gave   a   promissory  paper   of
Home Rule which was merely to bo
read to Parnell and afteiward return.

he said:

Laooucheie su.d, "Parnell, you must

Parnell said, very gently: "on, no,
it's sttier iu my poei.et," and he withstood ail Labouchere's brilliant aigu-

Labouchere's Interview with Gladstone was stormy. Gladstone fiercely
blamed him tor ihe uetenuo.i oi tnj

Ills horrible crimes weie commuted,

coincidence, two letters were sent to
Truth office, addressed to Henry La-
ibouchere, saying, "A murder will tauo

"He signs like u monarch," Mr. Labouchere said, "and certainly at tho
present moment he is the most talkeu
about man ln London. 1 cannot fancy
anything so thrilling ns a man whj

morning papers brought to him, all
with a dlilerent theory of his motive-

Some years ago thero was a murder committed in Lng .snd and the
person strongly suspected was no ver
convicted. Mr. Lajouchere, with evidence snd map of the locality boioiv��
him, worked out the cate to a per
fectly logical and lntvitable conclusion. He then sent the paper to Sir
George Lewis, who promptly returned
it, saying that it would lead to a caso
for libel, with such enormously heavy
damages to follow that he eou.d nut
publish it.
Many   of    Mr.   Labouchere's   mast

did not complain at the return of a

The situation presented upon the

Exposed by Labouchere.
Mr. Wells'  fame was Inconvenient
It attracted the attention of Mr. Henr>
Labouchere, of Truth, and he set on
foot an investigation Into the nature
of Wells' patent business ln England.
The result was that one of the vlc-
who had entrusted Wells with money
began suit to recover the amount of
his investment, and in the course of
the trial the fraudulent nature of the
concern became apparent.   Wells flea
to   a yacbt that he had   in waiting,
with the object of reaching Portugal,
where he would be safe Trom extradition.   On the way, however, he made
the mistake of stopping at Havre to
dispose of his surplus coal.   Before be
could clear the port news of his arrival  had  reached    England, and  ho
was  arresteJ.    He  was  taken  back,
and made a bold fight in Bow street,
claiming that his Inventions were genuine.     The jury listened coldly, and
found him guilty.   He was sentenced
to eight years in Portland Prison.
A Career of Swindling.
When he was released he was peu-

There Is some doubt whether there
will be any soccer in this city next
Saturday. The Senior Amateurs are
scheduled to play the V... A. C. on
Moody'squafe, but word was received
irom tbe secretary of the leagu^, at
the meeting held last night, thai he
had seen fit to change the order ef
the games, and he suggested that'New
Westminster might "pay an exhibition
game with the West Enders. The
local team, however, did not see
things Quite ln the same light, and
the V. A. C. will probably decide to
play their match according to schedule. The Rovers have no game on

cured by a powder supplied by a native doctor who "was said to have

Few American 8hips.
Mr. Wallace's reference to the shipping laws of the United States re
quires some explanation, for bis opinion the Panama Canal will be & failure, as far aB the American people are
concerned, U these laws, which require all coastwise trade to be carried ln American bottoms, are not
amended, it ls a fact, he says, that
it costs from two to three times as
much to carry a ton of freight In an
American bottom ai ln one of a foreign country. There are several reasons for (liis. but the tail it Ib said

Centenary of Frederick the Great Notable Event.
Germany celebrated tho bl-centary
of Frederick the Great last week. "Old
Fritz," ss he was affectionately called
by hls Boilers, was one of the great
men of the age, and united Germany
owes much to him, for lt was the military ability and statecraft of Frederick II. that broke the ascendency of
the Hapsburg family, and made Prussia supreme among the German states.
He was one of those great men, too,
whose memory might well be cherished by other natlonB beside hls own.
No Frenchman was ever a warmer admirer of French literature than the
third King of Prussia. He was a
grandson of George I. of England. He
sent a sword to George Washington,
which was Inscribed, "From the
oldest general in the world to the
greatest." Four nations, therefore,
have reason to hold ln remembrance
the great Prussian, though it must be
confessed that his relationship to the
House of Hanover dil not Inspire bim
with affection for the English. He
ei en went so far as to Impose a cattle
tax on all Hessians passing througn
his kingdom to take service with the
English army.
Frederick and William.
Although Frtderlck II. left no children, being succeeded by his nephew,
lt has not escaped attention that in
many respects    he had qualities    in
common with the yresent Kmperor ot
Germany.      A lover of music and of
literature and a delight in composing
are common   attributes.      Frederick,
Uke William, was a very hard worker, on some occasions goin^ for weeks
at a time with only four hours' sjeep
out of the twenty-four.   No man more
thoroughly devote! himself to furthering what he believed to be the interests c   his, people than Frederick. He

did not object to criticism nor tothfe^
crude    and   sometimes  cutting    lampoons of which he was made the victim.    "My  people    and I,"  said Old
Fritz, "understand each other.   They
are to say what they like; and I am
to do what 1 like."    From which it
would appear that he was not without a strong sense of humor.   He was
extremely democratic, and belonged to
that    school  of great    generals  who
never expected their soldiers to undergo greater hardships than tbey themselves were willing to face.   It was on
this account that be was able to command tbe devotion of his troops to an
extent hardly surpassed    ln    military
history.        .
Father and  Son.
In his life tbere ia much that might
be quoted in support of the theory
that genius is akin to madness. He
never lived with his wife. When he
died it -e aa found that he did not own
a decent shirt, and so he was buried
in his night gown. His father, too',
was more than "queer." It was his
great ambition to form a corps ot
giant soldiers, and to marry them to
gigantic women in the hope that their
sons would be still more formidable
ln appearance. He entertained a hatred lor his son Frederick and hls
daughter Wllhelmina that was almost
a mania. Until he reached the age at
20 Frederick was subjected to the
most cruel tyranny. He had only to
manifest the slightest Interest in an/
study to have lt forbidden him. Hb
most innocent enjoyments were curbed, and it is not to wondered at that
he consoled himself with secret diversions that were not always so Innocent. In desperation he fled to England, but was arrested and brought
back. He was forced to be present at
the execution of a friend who ha.l aid
ed him to escape, and hls own life
would havo been taken had not the
Emperor of Germany and two or three
other monarchs Interposed.

Once every few years there comes

bare reaches of the Arctic; but every

The call comes first as a whisper
and it Is heard only by the favored
few. Bags and traps are gathered together and the lonely pioneer goes
forth to labor in a far land. No more
is heard of him until he returns home
laden with wealth and full of stories
of his new-found El Dorado.
Then follows" the boom day. There,

One man who was mining ln Alaska
had had many entreating letters from
a mining brother in the southern republic, telling him of the wonderful
'���rosjects for sold seekers, which were
offered In Bolivia.   He left the northern territory, stopped for further Information at the Bolivian consul's office in San Francisco, and is now on
his way to the shining El Dora,:lo of

many such enthusiasts.    Bolivia's day

The gold-bearing belt of the country Is divided into three regions. The

It Is a Means of Securing a Seat In
British House of Commons.
Ever since Stusrt days the Commons hsve had their own chaplain
to open their daily proceedings with
a simple nnd impressive service.
The prayers sre read daily by the,
chaplain immediately after the 8peai.
er enters the House; the Speaker himself giving the renponses as he stands
at the table. ' ��wring the Jjtief service the doors aTS elosed, snd no
strangers or reporters'are allowed to
be pjespnt. Bffmtol of the Press Gal-
lery are not allowed to take their seats
during  prayers.
It i.s a noticeable fnct that, however crowded may be the House during thu service, the Treasury and
the front Opposition benches are always  empty.
The House of Commons, unfortunately, only provides sitting accommodation for about half of its 670 members; and it is a rule ol Parliament
that a member who is present at pray,
ers is entitled to retain the place he
then occupies against all comers until the House rises. Thus, if a legis-
lstor is anxious to listen to or take
part i.i an important debate, he can
only make sure of a seat by claiming
it at prayer-time.
To make quite sur? of the seat he
has thus secured he takes from a box
on the table a small card bearing the
words "At prayers"; he writes his
name on it. and places it in a slot
provided for the purpose nt the back
of his seat. This done, his seat, for
the rest of the day. is as inviolable
as the crown itself. He can leave the
House when he pleases and for any
length of time; others may occupy
his seat during his absence; but the
moment, he returns the interloper
must yacate it in  his favor.
For Cabinet Ministers and ex-Min-
isters seats on the front benches are
always reserved. There is no need to
establish a right to them from day
to day. And thus it is that these
benches are deserted; and that many
a man who attends church but seldom
is to be seen in his place during
prayers, as apparently devout as any
of his more piously-minded fellows.
In addition, however, to the daily
religious service in the House of Com-
nions there is a meeting for prayer
held weekly in one of the rooms of
the House.
Drunkards'  Patron Saint.
What hits come to be known as St.
Martin's Summer consist; of a few
lovely days about the second week of
November. We hear a great deal
about St. Luke's Summer; but St.
Martin's Summer and his name-day.
November 11, suffer neglect���possibly
because the saint was French, and
not English.
Perhaps, too, th�� knowledtre t^at he
is the patron saint of drunkards has
not added to his reputation. That offlce came tp him by accident. The
reason he had thus doubtful honor
thrust upon him after his death was
rather curicus. The Vinalia, or Feast
of Bncchus, was always celebrated
on November 11. La*er, when the
Christians decided to merge Bncchus
into Rt. Martin, the reputation ot the
former was unfortunately handed on
to the saint, although quite unmerited
by him.
Before his conversion he was a military tribun0, stationed at Amiens.
When one day, go the story goes, in
midwinter, at the city gate of Amiens
a miserable beggar appealed to him
for help, the soldier drew his sword,
and, dividing his cloak, gave half of
It to the wretched beggar. At night,
so it is said, Christ in person appeared to the astonished soldier, clad in
the very cloak he had divided with the
beggar a few hours before.
Another legend is that the saint,
having been annoyed by the behavior of one of the geese in his poultry-
ysrd, ordered it to be slain nnd served up for dinner. He died immediately after partaking of it, snd the anniversary has ever since been observed
in France by the eating of goose on
that day, November 11.
Morris' Dream Poem.
Coleridge wss not the only great
poet who sometimes dreamt in song.
I was talking, says a correspondent,
to William Morris about Coleridge
nnd his wonderful dream fragment.
Morris was eloquent in its praise,
and I inquired of him if he, too.
ever wrote poems in his sleep. Moms
sat down promptly in a sent���we were

back of Kelmscott House���nnd brok"
Into one of his big laughs. "Oh,
yes," he said. "One night 1 had b��en

lng that I could dream anything iialf
ag flno. And I did dream a piem that
move;! me to actual tears by its beauty." "And did you remnmb'r it when
you woke up?" I asked. " Yes." said
Morris grimly, "one line. And the
line ran:
The moonlight slept on a treacle sea.
"And then I ceased to weep," he
added, "and haven't wished to dream
poems again."���London StaudarJ.
Sir W. E. Smith's Career.
Sir William ��. Smith, who succeds
Sir Philip Watts ns Britisli Director
of Naval Construction, lived in his
vonth among seamen. He joined the
Portsmouth Dockyard when 11 year*
of age.- His flrst work was as tope-
house boy, when ns such he came in
con'.ict with all the mysteries of the
old sailing ship era. In 18fl5 h�� was
apprenticed as a shipwright at Woolwich. In the following year he waa
transferred to the Portsmouth Dockyard. Having spent fo-�� years' ap-
prenticeship, he joined the South Ken-
sington School of Naval Architecture
in 1899. and the Hoyal Corps of Naval
Conductors in 1873.

Not Tied to Them.
The Archbishop ol York was a great
favorite with the royal family, and a
princess upon one occasion told him
he ought to marry, as a wife would be
oi more use to him than a dozen curates.
"But supposing we didn't agreeP"
he asked.
"Well, you don't always agr.ee with
your curates, do you?"
"No; but then I can always send

Superintendent of E.ucation In jftflflL
time Province Vindicates Right ol
School Tea*!.ers to Lead Oreat National Movementr as In Other
Lands���Aim tf the Federation Is to
Unify Public Opinion.
. At the annual conference ot Canadian Clubs, held in Winnipeg lust
summer, Mr. W. S. Carter. M.A.,
LL.D., 'nas elected president of the
Association for all Canada. The chief
aim of the great speech-after-luncheon
movement, founded by Charles McCul-
lough, in Hamilton, in 1893, is to teach
true Canadian nationalism. As a
school teacher" starting humbly down
in New Brunswick, and climbing until
in 190!) he became Superintendent of
Education for the Province, Dr. Car-
tor has probably had more experience
elucidating eloquently the virtues of
Canadianism, than many of tho business men who belong to the Canadian
Club, and have not encountered
Young Canada in the raw as he has.
Bchool teachers and university professors are too infrequently called to
identify themselves officially with
broad national movements in this
country. This is not so in France
and Germany and oth:.- European
countries wir-e pedagogues sometimes lead revolutions and sre msde
heroes of novels.
As head of the Association of
Canadian Clubs, he will have an opportunity to organize public opinion
in a quiet but effective way. The Association represents sli th" Canadian
clubs of the Dominion, but has n o
power over them, either in administration or in legislation. Its chief
business is to unity opinion and experience in Canadian Club work, to
help the weaker clubs, at ' to assist
ip founding new clubs. Its influence!
is thus incidental, but none the less
Prisoners of Parliament.
Not everyone is aware that the
British Houses of Parliament have
their own prison. Yet situated hig.'i
up in the Clock Tower is the M.P.'s
prison, consisting of six rooms���four
bed-rooms  and   two  sitting-rooms.
Tho honorable member who has
been dishonored by imprisonment
for a breach of Parliamentary etiquette does not have such a very
hard life in St. Stephen's prison.
The prisoner's meals sre sent up to
him from the House of Commons'
kitchens, and he can choose whatever
dishes he likes from the ordinary
menu. Unlike an ordinary prisoner,
he receives the bill for his meals
from  the catering authorities!
Perhaps the best-remembered occupant of Parliament's prison was Mr.
Brad laugh, who was sentenced by
Mr. Speaker to imprisonment in th)
Clock Tower for refusing to withdraw
when requested tri to do.
Offenders against Parliament other
than members have before now been
sentenced to imprisonment in the
Clock Tower.' These "outsiders" have
included several public speakers and
the editor of a prominent newspaper.

To Protect Jewels.
The Duchess of Marlborough haa
now installed a band ot detectives at
Sunderland House, her residence in
Mayiair, to guard her treasures.
Six ex-Scotland Yard men are now
employed���three ior day and three for
night duty. Although the mansion is
fitted with the most finished and ex-,
pensive system ol burglar alarms, .the
duchess recently developed a state
of nervousness that produced insomnia and was undermining her health.
She commenced to carry about all
her most valuable jewelry, whenever
she went abroad, but when .'it was
pointed out to her thst this was a
dangerous proceeding, she decided to
adopt the detective scheme of protection.
This little enterprise will cost her
at least $5,000 a year, but she thinks
it is money well spent. The detective*
parade the corridors all day and night,
while one man keeps a watchful eye
on strunge visitors. Servants, too, are
kept under observation, for recent
cases have shown they are often in
league with thieves.
Awful Rot.
An entertaining story is told by Mr.
Robert Hichens oi .the time when he
used to write lyrics for music. One
of liis songs, "A Kiss and Good-Bye."
was to be sung by Madame Patti in
the Albert Hall. In the pride of hi*
heart the young author, who tool* a
si.at in lhe stalls, was much uplifted
by the enthusiastic applause that followed the song. His delight was suddenly checked, however, by tw��
voices from thu seats Immediately behind him. "What a lovely song that
was," oue exclaimed, rapturously.
"Yes," the other grudgingly agreed,
"but what awful rot the words ef these
i'jngs ulways are.''
