Victoria 81 a Host.
The London Chronicle says the announcement that tho King of Italy
will be the guest of King Edward
VII this year recalls tho Visit paid
by his grandfather, Victor Emmanuel, when he was King of Sardinia,
to Queen Victoiia. The king used to
tell his friends for many and many
a year afterward littlo stories to illustrate Queen Victoria's fiiendly and
homely spii it. When his leave taking uf tho Queen and Prince Consort
was formally over and he was in his
apartment on the point of departure,
the Queen knocked on the door and
rai in alone for a last hanrisiV.ake
•with her gruff but greatly delighted
guest.
Encouraging?.
George—All these -articles about tho
danger of contagion from kissing are
very charming, don't you think?

KEY TO THE EMPIRc.
Canada Said to __m »o b.v Piominent Enx-
li alt Journal.
The Saturday Review, London, recently had ail article under the caption of "Canada, the Key to the
Empire," of which Public Opinion
published the following condensation: "Canada presents all the difli-
cultics of the Imperial problem, and
all the aids to the solulion, in an
acute form, lt is tlie only self-governing colony in which the interest
of a foreign country has reached, under our happy-go-lucky system, enormous dimensions. . . . The growth
of Canada in recent years is not due
so much to British as to United
States enterprise, and it must bo
obvious to all who study the prot-
lem that if we fail now (to conso'«
date the Empire) noiAng can siop
the separation of Canada from the
United Kingdom and its ultimate absorption by the United States. If
Canada goes, other colonies must follow, and the disintegration of tho
British Empire will be tho distinguishing feature of the nineteenth
century history. If we succeed, we
shall not only solve the Canadian
problem; tho consolidation of the
Empire presents no greater problem
than that, lt is not a time in which
wo can adopt the free trade text, 'Let
tis eat and drink free food, for tomorrow we die.' ... An Imperial
policy is based upon the fact that it
is the interest of tho Empire that it
should be adopted; that thc United
Kingdom will secure a fresh lease of
life for those economic energies
which otherwise in no very distant
future must decay; and that the
colonies will achieve a moro rapid
development than is possible hi isolation. English people, at any i-ate
those who reject the free trade nostrums, should be the first to admit
that the present arrangement with
Canada, if made permanent, and unaccompanied with a change on our
part, must be unsatisfactory from
the Canadian point oi" view and incompatible with local aspirations. If
we reciprocate by stimulating the
wheat production of Canada, their
manufacturers will find ample scope
for all their energies in tho increased economic activity which the influx
oi population and its demand for all
kinds of commodities will insure,
while at the same time there will be
*n ever-widening market for the more
highly specialized industries of tins
United Kingdom. In this movement
there can be no question of the surrender of their independence and freedom of action by any of the colonies. We are not going to revive th,
mercantile systsm. Nothing more h,
required at any stage of Imperial
consolidation than an Imperial Council to aid and advise in tho adjustment of the comEiercial rolaii(_ns ot
tho Empire.". .-___,

Speaking of tlie Fair, the Ashcroft Journal says,—
T. Earl of Lytton, from whom
assistance might have been expected to make a district exhibit, prefers to play a lone hand.
He cannot be too severely condemned for this action because
of his official connection with the
fruit industry, holding some high
office or other. He nullifies iu a
great measure any good he can
do officially by the course he has
taken, and in the opinion of this

JOE MARTIN RIGHT AGAIN
He says his 3rd party is not
I'or B. C. alone, but for the whole
Dominion. *' It is felt on all sides
Unit the time is ripe for a new
movement in the political world.
If you talk privately with men
of either party, you will find the
Liberals are disgusted, and the
Conservatives are disgusted.
'What are you to do, wheu
both parties cease to be parties
of principle ? The present condition of affairs has created a
false situation, and a false situation may last for a certain
time, but it is bound to come to
g_ ie. before long. When tlie two
political parties were formed iu
Canada, they were formed on certain basic principles. The Liberal party sprang into being in
opposition to the Family Compact, and Downing Street Rule.
Those things ceased to exist and
then the question of Free Trade
versus a protective tariff divided
them, but they are both practically the same on that today,
and I cannot imagine why a
man should go to the polls to
place 12 or 15 men iu   power,
SALE OF LANDS FOR  UNPAID DELINQUENT TAXES

PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.
j rather than 12 or 15 other men,
when the a,verage voter cannot
know anything of either set of
men personally. This is not a
condition of things to be tolerated, when there are serious questions affecting Canada, whicli require to be dealt with from the
standpoint of principle.'
I HEREBY GIVE NOTICE that on Thnisday, 12th October,
1905, at the hour of eleven o'clock in the forenoon, at the Court
HoiiBe, Lillooet, I shall ee.1 hy public auction the lands hereinafter

In days when Douglas ruled the land,
With Beghie by his side,
One man was known as his right hand,
Foremost to quell the tide
Qf lawlessness ; and wall the "Three,"
In council, camp and court,
Swayed Justice's sceptre sternly,
Through good and ill report.

On eternal Cascadian snows.

It's whispered in evening's repose.

The removal of the pumping

■want the property. While no
■figures liave been given out, it is
probable the venture cost thein
in the neighborhood of $20,000
but that did not disclose tlie
body of ore they hoped to find.
lt is a great pity for the country
that Mr. Rodgers did not get
results, for his manner of conducting business is highly satisfactory to those with whom he
has dealings.
Some of the owners are said
to have expressed dissatisfaction
with the course followed, believing if work had been pushed in
.mother direction, or the shaft,
now down nearly 300 feet, had
been sunk still lower,— results
would have followed. They will
probably make efforts to have
work commenced again and have
development proceed according
*^o  their own ideas.

cent, of the deaths from disease were
due to fever, Privates O. J. Weaver,
C.M.R., and W. Winyard, Royal Canadian Dragoons, are misting.
ln the supplementary report of the
Militia Department, which contains
these facts, there are also some appreciative comments by the Earl of
Dundonald upon the soldierly qualities nnd valour of the 2nd Mounted
Rifles, under Col. Eivans, the splen-
clid equipment and behaviour of the
ICt.h 1' iold Hospital, under bieut..-
Col. Worthingtcn, and the patriotic
S]Irit of the officers and men ot the
third, fourth, fifth antl sixth regiments, who had no opportunity of
being under fire. I ieut, R. 1-1. Ryan
tells of the Surrender of Eelarey and
Kemp at Dornsco-iib, June 15, 1902.
Only 12 men, one corporal and one
officer cf the Stadls Artillery, only
12 of the Yarks, formerly a magnificent le.iment, and only one officer
nnd fix men of Delarey's signaling
corps remained.
Tlie Correct (Quotation.
If you must quote, do quote correctly. Is Ihe pen mightier than the
sword? Thousands say or pi int :
"The pen is mightier than the
sword." It may be true, but if it is
meant for a quotation it is not fairly givo. The original Hues in the
play are*.
"Henoath Ihoruleof men entirely m-at,
Tho pen i* miifh.iur ihan ibexword."
This error has been cone ted o cr
and over again. But those who ii.is-
quote seldom read what they are
pretending to quote, but quote from
a man who quoted from another man
who—and so on. Tn many books will
be found long lists of these prevalent
misquotations.

would produce the key or ei'en listen

him and said: "Ftudcn me, Sir Retl-
