Perry, Indian agent ut Prince Rupert,
recently proceeded to Port Simpson,
where he interviewed the Indians with
a view to securing their relinquishment
to all rights they hold to a great lund
reserve there. This reserve is 40,000
acres in extent. It contains a very
large amount of valuable waterfront
land on the excellent harbor of Tort
Simpson and includes an island ut the
entrunce to thut harbor,
The Indians were asketl lo name a
figure for their land and held two
meetings with Mr. Perry. They agreed
to stand by uny price thut might be
decided upon by u bourtl of arbitration.
Mr. Perry is understood to huve
told the Indians thut the land wus to
be used for the terminus of a railway
whose ownership, however, wus not
officially announced. The line is al-
ledgetl to be u branch of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, to run from a point
cast of Prince Rupert to Simpson,
which is eighteen miles across the
peninsula. The line, according to the
pluns, is to proceed also to the shores of
Wark Canal.
While there is no announcement of
the connection of the Grand Trunk
Pacific with thc scheme, it is not believed here thut the government would
move in the mutter for uny oilier promoters for whut woultl practically be a
branch to the 0. T. P.

���tooi ooamjrni
One proposition there is which needs
to be stated emphatically at this point
Words and phrases which tire amply
sufficient for the understandiiiK are often
altogether inadequate for the expression
of the feelings. The result of this mental dissatisfaction with the communication of mere knowledge is most conspicuously illustrated in the wide prevalence of profanity. Into the discussion
of this practice its moral antl religious
aspect does not enter at all. It is purely from the linguistic side that il is
here to bc considered. So looked tu,
its existence and the extent of the indulgence in it bear out the truth of the
principle just announced. Whatever intellectual justification there may be for
profanity is based upon the fact that
men are aiming to state strongly what
they feel strongly. The habit is, in
consequence, subject to the general law
governing intensives. To a very great
extent the practice of swearing is specially characteristic of a rude and imperfect civilization.
With the advance of culture profanity
declines. It declines so much because
men become peculiarly sensitive to its
viciousness, but they do to its ineffectiveness. The growth of refinement both
in the individual and in the community
tends more to its disuse than all the
exhortationa of moralists or the rebukes
of divines. Much must always be
allowed in the case of particular persons
for the influence of early training and
association. Exceptions are, therefore,
too numerous to lay down any positive
rule; still, it is safe to say in general
that a man's intellectual development
is largely determined by the extent of
his indulgence in profunity. No one,
indeed, doubts its wide prevalence at
the present time. But compared to
the practice of the past il ha- been
steadily, even if slowly, diminishing
for centuries. This does not prove
that men are better morally or intellectually than they were. It doea
show, however, that there exists now a
higher average of cultivation, which
renders the habit distasteful to InJ

Return to Barbarism
Read here of a few of the practices
of the enlightened women of fashion
of Christendom and the methods they
take to make themselves more beautiful in the eyes of their lords, or others.
Quite a striking new device is a face
and neck mask for removing wrinkles
Stretching the skin tight, our lady
places strips of adhesive plaster upon
it, t e idea, of course, being to draw
the skin tight. Over these strips goes
a mask, the inside of which is lined with
still other adhesive strips.
The wearer starts to bed, presumably to rest, despite the fact that this
instrument, uncomfortable as the Iron
Mask of history, is glued tightly to
her forehead and pressed closely about
chin and neck. The theory, of course,
is that the wrinkles are wiped out.
No count is taken of those pressed in
by the contrivance or the onhygenk
effect of lack of ventilation for the
skin and pressure upon the throat.
Throat diseases from this lad are quite
frequent.
The thumb screw was invented as
an instrument of torture to wring
from wretched persons the secrets they
were trying to keep, yet women now
apply thc thumb screw to themselves,
because it is the method of the moment
to make the fingers taper to a delicate
point.
The linger clamps look like clumsy
thimbles But they are literally thumb
screws. A screw gives them an extra
turn, crushing the (lesh, torturing the
nerves and pinching thc bones yet more.
If not alone the finger tip but the
entire finger is too thick and fleshy to
please the wearer, or to bear favorable
comparison with the hands of her
friends, she ties tightly around them
muslin bandages lhal are guaranteed
to stop the circulation and cause atrophy
of thc fingers. When she removes the
cloth lhe fingers do look smaller and
I whiter to be sure. Of the injury to
the fingers and to the health she does
not think, nor thinking, care.
To make the hand smaller women
will tie the bandages tightly around it, arresting the circulation in the whole
hand just as it is urrestcd in thc finger.
The hand is thus made to look smaller,
and it is smaller, but for the same
reason that a paralyzed limb grows
shrivelled. The effect is thc result of
impoverished circulation, and in the
end outraged nature pays back. The
hand treated thus will grow yellow and
old far in advance of the time it should
naturally grow so. Palsy is known
to have occurred from this practice of
bandaging, which, hy the way, is also
applied to the feet and even to calves
of the leg. In the latter case very evil
results have followed.
fed the imagination. A remark made
by the other was, "You have to read
too much to get a little; you can get
from one page of an essay as much as
from a whole novel."
Of course it is a very dry and withered
spirit that could not take pleasure from
a well-written story had he leisure to
read it. Besides that, the little gems
of thought as they may be when isolated, are many-fold more beautiful
in their setting as the words of nn
interesting character or as the interpretation of a scene. For the rest, the
best novels, read in the right way, help
us to understand human nature, help
us to understand ourselves.
I have* just been reading a novel,
not a new one, for it was published in
1883, but one that has been widely
read, and that possesses considerable
power.  1 find in it many gems.
If I give some of them, and a tiny
clue, I wonder if you can guess the
name of the novel? It is by a woman.
Try.
One on love: "There are as many
kinds of loves as there are flowers;
speedwells that wait for the wind to
fan them into life; blood-red mountain-
lilies that pour their voluptuous sweetness out for one day, and lie in the dust
at night. There is no flower has the
charm of all - the speedwells' purity
the everlasting strength, the mountain-
lilies' warmth; but who knows whether
there is no love that holds all���friendship, passion, worship?"
Another: "The pretty woman fades
with the roses on her cheeks, and the
girlhood that lasts an hour; the beautiful woman finds her fulness of bloom
only when a past has written itself on
her, and her power is then irresistible
when it seems gcing."
A third 13 of the sea: "Of all the
things I have ever seen, only the sea
is like a human beinc; the sky is not,
nor the earth. But the sea is always
moving, always something deep in itseli
is stirring i'. It ne or rests, it is always
wanting, wanting, warning. It hurries
on and then it creeps back slowly without having reached, moaning. It is
always asking a question and it never
gets the answer."
There are many such gems���few
diamonds or pearls, but many rubies,
\ sapphires, and also some humbler ones.
I In essays they w uld not have come
1 w.th the same force, for though their
I truths arc universal, they required that
| humdrum but passionate life of the
Boer farm aa -i background.

Why You Need a Novel
Our routine of thought needs to be
broken sometimes. The fresh scenes
of the novel are as beneficent to the
mind at times as a fresh breeze in
a sick room. But unlike the breeze,
that by constantly pouring in it.' fresh-
ncss, imparts vigor, novels to invigorate
the mind must come intermittently,
not crowding out the real. It is only
when the real has become sordid, tiring,
ordinary, that the Imagination needs
tn take flight on the wings of a novel.
In a conversation by two p ople
once on novel-reading, one defended
it on the ground that it stirred up
emotions, roused sluggish thought and
Care of Eyebrow*

tiny bald patches. Crude petroleum
rubbed well into the eyebr ws at night
will relieve the scaliness and promote
the growth of hair. A tiny brow brush
should be on every one's toilet table,
and used daily it imparts lu.'tre to the
brows and keeps them in good condition.

Why is the Journal Alarmed?
The Journal il alarmed over the new evangel of Liberalism which has suddenly
come to life in I'rince Kupert and not without cause, we admit. Especially is
it concerned about one of the executive of thc new body who happens to belong
to the craft. Its concern is quite all too brotherly. It evinces the same genial
eesire to wound, that is sometimes considered the prerogative of those who are
near and dear to us. Our attitude in aiming to be "a light in the darkness" and
in proclaiming lhat "Liberalism having succeeded i.. putting a vole into the hand
of every man, must now pro aad to teach him how to use that vote to the best
advantage," is said tc be "an insult to a great body of the electorate." Jf
All of which goes to show that the Journal resembles the lad in the rhyme
of whom it was said, "The gladness of her gladness, and the sadness of her sadness,
is nothing to her madness when she's mad."
Let us see what it is that is troubling our little friend. It cannot he the condition of political darkness it describes, for the phrase is its own. Indeed the
Journal has helped and is still helping to perpetuate that co .dition of darkness.
It cannot surely be our work in being what the Journal describes as "a light
iu the dakness," The hrnsc is its own. It is an ambition for any journal to
aspire to.
It cannot be the statement that Liberalism has put a vote into the hands of
every*'"*'" That is a mere mutter of history. In a thousand volumes, the Journal
may read oi the histori conllict between Liberalism aiming lo extend the franchise, and Con crvatir-m aiming to conserve the franchise.
Apparently the Journal feci.-) mad at the suggestion thai people require educating on political questions. Il seems lo think that the giving of a ote lo a man
means also the giving of a knowledge of political doctrines und a understanding of
pnlii cal problems. Il says, in fact, lhat if il did not so believe that it "would
advocate the disfranchising of those whom we believe were not qualified to cast
an intelligent vote." Thus in one swoop, for the sake of Conservative principle
the Joui nal would cut off t e votes of its followers.
We would lay the foundation of the Journal's political education by informing
it that a majority at an election is never an i dicalio of a people's wisdom. It
is only an indicat.on of a party's strength or the people's wish. Like a battle,
a naval fight, or even u common street light, it merely decides which is the stronger
party, never which is the custodian of justice and equity. More often than not,
justice is in the minority, 1-ecause every righteous cause starts in the mind of one
man, and endures defeat after defeat until at last it conquers Opposition. Such
in fact has been the history of the fight of Liberalism to give every man, irrespective
of party or wealth, or education, a vote in the affairs of the country.
One of the evidences that cduration is needed is shown in the very election
the Journal quotes Since January l'.lth, many voters have changed iheir minds.
Few of the workingmen for instance, knew then that Mr. Manson was on record as
opposed to the Eight Hour Bill, und that at Alderman Smith's opera house I nion
inusic'ans had been discharged to make way for non-union labor. Only since the
45 cent question came up have they had their eyes opened. Their candidates'
promises looked good until the mutter came up for discussion. Then one alderman

Victoria, Feb. 16.���Yesterday the
latest addition to the Victoria sealing
fleet, the schooner Lady Mine, of San
Francisco, purchased by Richard Hall,
A. J. Bechtel and others, of Victoria,
reached port under command of Capt
George Heater after a good run from
the Golden Gate, off which the vessel
has for so many years been engaged as
a pilot tender for the San Francisco

It has only been through the j the Strait two days ago and was delayed
efforts of Alderman I'alti Ho, nd the Opiimist lhat the matter has been forced
along    Even now the decision hangs in the balance.
Other voters had a sincere belief that they were electing a business council.
They have learned thut it is a patronage committee. Within three days, probably
within twenly-four hours, the working men will be put in possession of information
tl at will still further c .use them to regret their choice. It is an absurd doctrine,
that wisdom goes with majorit ies. Wc are ready lo bow to the wishes of the majority.
That i- a pnrl of our social contract. We are willing to pat Demos on the back

Bui why should lhe Journal lie so alarmed about the spread o! political education, anyway?
The Journal advances ihe characteristically Conservative doctrine that thc

not a privilege, but a right,. Which do you think il is? A right or a privilege. It
will help you to your political bearings.

yesterday morning and waa towed to
the upper harbor by the launch J. G.
Cox.
The Lady Mine ia an excellent addition to the local fleet. She was built
at Port Dlukeley and was constructed
of oak. The interior arrangements are
like those of a yacht. This is to be
torn out, and the vessel will be remodelled for the sealing trade. Her
length ia 82 feet over all, or 70 feet between perpendiculars, beam 29 feet,
and she is 8 feet deep, with tonnage of
58 tons.
Leaving San Francisco heavy wea-
tbre was experienced, a strong gale
being encountered soon after Point
Reyers was rounded. Heavy seas were
experienced for the greater part of the
trip, the strongest blow being felt
when the Lady Mine was off the Columbia river, but the schooner rose
splendidly, shipping very little water.
When near Cape Flattery a tramp
freighter was sighted and all sail was
set in an effort to overhaul this vessel,
with the result that the schooner bowled
along at an eleven-knot gait and went
by the setamer.
The schooner was nglltflnd at San
FrancNco, but duty will be paid on her
and she will change her Mag and be
registered at Victoria.

Tommy, after much labor, handed his

"Twins is a baby, only it's double.
When twins do cnnylhing wrong their
mother can't tell which one to lick,
so she gives it to both of 'em so as
to make sure. We've got twins at our

COLONIST FOR
RECIPROCITY
FLOUTS THE IDEA THAT IT WILL
LESSEN LOYALTY
Surprised That Men Who Ought to
Know Better Should Use Such
Argumrnto-Canada's Loyalty Is
Above Suspicion or Price.
Mr. Hamar Greenwood made a vigorous protest against suggestion that
the reciprocity agreement with the
United States in any way involves the
suspicion that the Dominion is disloyal
to the Empire. We think entirely too
much is being made of this agreement,
which is at the most only, so far as
Canada is concerned, an undertaking
to lower the duties on certain goods
coming into the country from the
United States, and increase the free
list, an undertaking that may be altered
next year. The Colonist has all along
deprecated the introduction of the
question of loyalty into discussions of
trade arrangements. It has taken the
p sition that, once it is admitted that
loyalty to the Empire Is something
that is to bc determined one way or
the other by tarilf schedules, it would
become an exceedingly uncertain quantity, and might vary from year to year.
We are surprised that men, who, one
would suppose, ought to be able to
take a broad view of public questions
do not unsdertand this. If a 25-cent
preference on wheat imported into the
United Kingdom from Canada would
make us loyal, presumably a 50 cent
preference would make us still more
loyal, and a 20 cent preference less so.
On the other hand take the position of
thc United States towards us. That
country doubtless will from time to
time change its duties on goods imported from Canada. Is our loyalty to
���he Empire to fluctuate accordingly?
And what is this loyalty anyway about
which  we are constantly to move in

contain many articles needed in the home every day
and at prices below the ordinary. You will find many
money savers on this counter and that it will constantly have new things
added to its wide variety
and that the nimble dime
which runs away with the
