The Cost of h "Scurry" Train If You Ar
ill a Hurry  und Have I'lenty of Money
—Some Ueoortl Trips of 11lls Character
Mudo in lhe Old Land.
From $250 to $750 and 30 minutes' notice at a big railway station
--often less—will provide you with a
train of four carriages all to yourself, it will whirl you to the other
end of Britain—to whatever station
you want to reach. If ever you are
in such a hurry that money matters
nothing—provided you have got it-r-
you can count on getting an ordinary train at the price of from 20 to
40 ordinary fares to your destination.
JJut if you want comfort and
"style," an extra half hour's notice
to the railway people will procure
you a dining and sleeping car, with a
cook, attendants, food and wines,
from $100 to $150 extra. Then you
can "burn the ground" over 300
miles by rail, only stopping to water
the engine and laugh at all the time
tables ever compiled. A great many

The Higgeat ••Scurry."
One of the biggest "scurries" in
special train records was a train
scratched together for the King,
when Prince of Wales, nn a very im-
pottant occasion. He, of course,
neatly always has his own trains,
but "extras" are as much a part of
the railway system as the mails.
There is nothing exciting about
But while on a visit to a country-
house just outside J_ei.eB-.er, the
King received a message that had
been delayed. The Crown Prince of
Greece had arrived in England and
his formal reception by the Queen at
Buckingham Falace was put forward
by a cuty. The news, owing to a
breakdown, did not reach the Prince
till 15 hours alter it ought to have
reached him, and he barely had two
and a half hours before the ceremony
began, 'these affairs between royalties are extremely punctilious and
there are no excuses.
It would have been almost an international slight if the Prince had
not appeared, but there was no
train. A messenger rode posthaste
to Leicester, the Prince followed in a
fast carriage and when he arrived a
"special" of four "odd-und-end" carriages, had been slung to a fast engine—less than four are not safe—in
less thun 15 minutes.
He jumped in, the line was cleared
and off the train went. He waa
without lunch and the carriage was
an ordinary first-class, but the
Prince's valet bustled some sandwiches in at the last moment, and
the train, with a clear line, whisked
its royal freight to London in an
hour and 40 minutes. He was just
in time for the-reception.
The "Marriage Special."
Probably the most romantic, as
well as one of the smartest of special train hurries was one that raced
from London to Dover a few yeais
ago, on the occasion of a runaway
match, and which still lives in railway annals as the "marriage special." Tho engager of the train, a
Mr. Vickery, had big difficulties to
overcome, for his fiancee wus a ward
in chancery, that is, she and her
estate were under the guardianship of
the law, and the penalty for marrying a ward without the consent of
the court is imprisonment.

In his paper, "Th© Canadian West
and Northwest,," which was read le-
contly at the meeting of the lloyal
Colonial iisUtute, London, Mr. W.
Albeit Hickman said he did not relieve thot the American invasion involved the slightest danger to British interests, lie had tlie pleas re
of going north in the Saskatchewan
country with a special train containing 166 American cai i.a!i..ts to buy
Canadian land. The train was placarded "Special Train of the Sos-
kat he.van Valley Land Company."
which company bought no le. s titan
one million acres of land. lie had
studied the invading army carefully
and it impressed l.itn that the majority of them appreciated British
institutions, and became good Canadian citi.ens with great rapidity.
He looked upon this investment of
many millions of American money in
Canadian lands as but t'ie forging o<
one moie chain in the alieady existing informal alliance—the Anlo-
American confederation. Figures led
him to the inference that in 15 years
the United States would not be exporting one bushel of win at. All
would be required for home consumption, and her wheat lands woi I 1
all be under cultivation. The United
Kingdom might then look to getting
her wheat supply from t'ie Canadian
pi ins—and much of h;r supply of
meat and dairy prodtce als >. Some
of them who were in that room
would eat bread made from Hour of

Pea'e Kiver as st re as day was day.

sent a $10,000 roller flour mill i to

Novel Way. nf liming Stock.
The latest way of selling stock is
hy measuring with dollar bills. Tho
other day a cow was sold in this
manner and the price determined by
measuring around the animal's body
by $1 bills. It only required 11
bills to encircle the cow, and now
there is one man in East Flnmboro
who will never sell that way again.
Another game is to offer to buy a
horse lor the amount of money required to measure it from the tip of
the nose to the end of thc tail, bul
instead of measuring tip over the
head and along the back, the horses
tail is drawn forward between his
hind legs and his head backward
between his forelegs, and it is found
that the distance between the nose
nnd the tail can sometimes be covered by one bill.

Taking 1 hings Coolly.
There is ti temporary stillness
in political circles. I-vei'.yboil.y
is in nu expectant mood. It' there
is one thing more ei'joyable t linn

it is polities. The excitement of
the provincial elect inn of three
■years ng-o had hardly subsided
when the air was filled again with
rumors of another political war.
Perhaps, at this stage, a suggestion to take things more coolly
will not be out of plnce.
So far as our observation goes,
it is the quiet man  who "gets
there".    You can hardly   believe
it as you talk to him, but results
force tin. fact upon you.    Fussi-
ness is a, hindrance in work, and
excitement often upsets the best-
laid schemes.  The angry controversialist usually loses his case.
It will be necessary in tliecoiiiingi
political conflict to strike hard,!
and to strike home, lint in order
to do the latter full  deliberation j
is   necessary,   lest  the   blow  be
struck at a point from  which   it
redounds to our own discomfiture.   A story is told of a tourist
who, when in Naples, was jostled |
one evening by  a stranger.    He]
put his hand into his pocket soon
after, and missed his watch.   At
once he rushed after the supposed thief, knocked him down, and
beat   him    severely.     The   man
handed out the article demanded

ly  back to  his hotel.    When he
got into his bedroom   there was

that he himself   had  acted   the!

Perhaps Rhodesia was the ancient

lint the theory is strongly comhaled
■by some investigators. The ancient
Jgoltl workings are the basis cf mod-
;n workings. For every ten square
L'tiilcs of Rhodesia there was one an-
J'cient mine, that is, (hero cr~ 75,000
Iold holes, which means that a stu-
Ipendour* wealth was dug out of tho
I earth before the dajs of Cecil

A Wonderful Athlete.
Some time ago we expressed aston
ishment nt the performance of Prebendary Webb-Peploe, who in this
month's Quiver, is said to have
jumped from a .si~k-bed, won his
e\ctrt in the university sports, nnd
then returned to bed, and '-remained
on I is back for the next twelve
months," A letter fiom Mr. Webb-
Peploe assures us that this is in the
main accurate, but nn under-stat-
ment. He did it twice, nntl won the
high jump and diving and swimming
in the intervals of a three years'reclining—not exactly in bed, hut on a
sofa. "Where I went the spinal couch
went," writes Mr. Wobb-Pcploe. And
to the spinal couch came even the
Cambridge examiners to pass him
through his examinations to his degree. It was a notable triumph of
mind over matte, and we are glad
to get confirmation of these extraordinary exploits from their doer.—

dreams of lhe hotel manager of fifteen yeais ugo.
While tbe wonderful Ritz Hotel, to
reach from AiTngton sti eet to the
Green Park, promises to be the most
splendid in London, Clai idge's, just
off GrosVetior Square, his already
introduced the modern liotel life into the veiy heait of May fair. Ve y

Cla-klge's and tie plainness, almost

up at the hotel.
Tlie Old Math Hotel.
For nearly 150 years the old Bath
Hotel has been looked upon by generations of Londoners as one of the
mysteries which only the aristocratic
might penetrate. There is something
forbidding in the words, pointed on
the Piccadilly side of the house.
'Bath Hotel—for Families and Gent->
lcn.cn," and mi lions of people must
have looked upon the plain, dowdy
old corner building, with its coat of
dirty pci.it, and have fancied the interior to be, by contrast, a marvel of
Hut now, being doomed to destruction, the old place has been subjected daily to inspection by brokers,
and tho auctioneer has sold its contents. And the famous Bath Hotel
stands revealed as a wrctcbed jumble
of passages and rooms, devoid of attraction, and fit only for the housebreaker. Its floors have reached the
"switchback" stage. There are unsuspected little steps, some up and
some down, into many of the rooms.
The old portable baths—in a Piccadilly Hotel!—emphasize the change
which has taken place between tho
era of the Bath and the era of Clar-
IdgO's and the Carlton.
All over the West-end the "hotel dc
luxe" is springing up. In Sloane
Street, the Cadogan, close by thc
Hans Crescent, in Mount Street, tho
Cobourg. in Kensington Gore, the
Be Vere and Royal Palace Hotels,
all tell tho snme tale. And the middle-aged hotels in Alhermarle Street
and thereabout are hlo.soming into
a new and more luxuriant existence.

Kipling '« Fond of Pie.
Rudyard Kipling, it appears, is
fond of apple pie baked on the American system. To gratify his taste a
glass lolling pin speially used in
the manufacture of these pics has
just been forwa'dod to the novelist
from Wanamakcr's. The glass rolling pin has among o her advantages the me it of always being
sweet and clean, and of being hollow
so that it can be filled with ice to
tool the pie trust. When Mrs. Kipling, who is an American, was in
that country last summer; she greatly admired this contrivance, end
knowing that her husband nnd children were fond of American pies, a_-
(i'led to got them the next best
thing by having hor pies made with
an American rolling pin.
Crown a London Landlord.
Among the great ground landlords
fn London the Crown is one of tho
g. potest, owning propel ties in various paits of the capital yielding in
ground rents £460,000 per annum.
.Fifteen years ago the estates produced *C250,000 only, but many leases
have fallen in within that time, and
the increased rents have been exacted for renewal fines or for new leases. The Carlton Hotel is a striking
instance of the increased value of
ground in London. Formerly the
site on whi'.h the hotel stands was
held for the Crown for a ground rent
of £76.'? por nnnuni; now £4,200
yearly has to be paid.
Hritl-li Wine Drinking.
The consumption of claret in Great
Britain, which grew pretty steadily
after the French commercial treaty
negotiated by Mr. Oobden in 1861,
would seem to have received a check.
The importation of still wines from
France has fallen off by 807„000 gallons. The sales of Burgundy, Sad-
tcrne and ChabllS have not materially varied, and the deficit is entirely
attributable to the comparative neglect of claret. In spite of war in
the first five months of 1902 and
high taxation, there was an increase
in the consumption of champagne of
nearly 20,000 gallons. The declino
of claret has naturally been followed by nn increase in the drinking of
port. The importation of this wine
has increased by ill),000 gallons, and
if Dr. .Johnson's dictum be true that
claret is the drink for boys and
port wino for men, we ought, I suj)-
pose, says a London correspondent,
to rejoice nt. the change. All good
patriots will be glad to learn that
the importation of German wines nasi
fallen off, and they will bo equally
delighted to hear that there has been
a growth in the consumption of Australian wines of over 256,000 gallons.

Lillooet District
Attracting Attention
on*account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.    -*-q~g=^
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
ar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground i being worked with profit at
tlie present time.
A company is now working* a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising; Mineral Lands.
ANDioitsoN lake and uuidqe iiiVEii mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected.
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds^—
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. -Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.^>
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers.    Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town    ,
Nearest Uailway towns are ashckoft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific kailway.

The follow ing platform was a-
dopted unanimously by llie l.ev-
elstoke Con veuI ion on Septeiubei-
_.2t.li, 1902:
1—--Thiit this Convention re-
atfirins the policy of the Party in
matters of Provincial roads and
I rails; the ownership ami cold roi

of the agricultural resources of
the Province, as laid down in the
Platform adopted in October
185)9, which is as follows:
''To actively aid in the construe ion ol
trails throughout the Province and tin
building of Provincial Trunk ro.itls of
public necessity.
''To adopt the principle of Government ownership of railways in so far as
the circumstances of the I'rovinee will
admit,-nd to adopt the principle that
no honti-' shou'tl be granted to any railway comp my which does not give the
government of tli- Province control of
ratesover lines hon used, together with
the option of purchase.
"To actively astist by Stale aid in the
development of the agricultuial resourc
es of the Province."
2—That in the meantime nnd until
the Railway po icy above set forth can
be accomplished, a genera' Railway Aei
he passed, giving freedom to construct
railways under certain appr. veil regulations, analagous to the system that hat-
resulted in such ex'onsive railway construction in the United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
3—That to encourage '.he mining in-
d us try, the taxation of metalliferous
mint s should be on the basis of a p* icen-
of the net profits.
4—That the Government ownership of
telephone systems should he b-otisjlii
about as a first step iu ihe acquisition
of public utilities.
5—That a portion of every coal area lo
be hereafter disposed of, should he reserved from sale or lease, so lhat state-
owned miiips may easily he accessible,
if Iheir operation become necessary or
6—That in the pulp land lease? provision should be made for refoietine
and that steps should be taken for the
general preservation of forests by guarding against the wasteful destiuction <if
7—That the Legislature and government of the Province should persevere
in the effort lo secure the exclusion of
Asiatic lab r.
8—Tnat the matter of better subsidies
and appropriations for 15.C. be vigorously pressed upon the Dominion U vein-
9—That the silver "lead industries be
fostered by the imposition of increased
Customs duties on lead and lead products importc I into Canada.
10—Tnat arrangements he made for au
amicable adjustment of the relations between employeis and employed.
11--That it is advisable to foster tlit
manufacture of the raw products of the
province within the Province as far as
practicable by means of taxation on the
said raw products subject to rebate ol
the same in whole or in part when manufactured in British Columbia.
