The leading Conservative organ of B.
0. repudiates in the extracts quoted he-
low the course of the Conservative lenders, during the recent elections, ol stirring up racial strife. No more
criticism killing of the anti-
Frenoh        campaign       could be
made so we publish the editorial in fu'l.
"Thtrtv-tive members ot the Quebec
legislature have been elected by acclamation. We suppose this can hardly
be paralleled in the history of the Canadian piovinces. ThetoUl membership
of the Quebec legislature is seventy-four,
so that within three of a majority of Ihe
members have been returned without a
contest. There is only one explanation
possible for the astounding collapse of
Quebec Conservatism, and that is to be
found in the madness with which a certain section of the conservative party in
federal politics assailed tlie French. The
.tfoutreal Star set the pace, and it was
too generally followed, the result being
the almost complete obliteration of the
party in a province where it was once
supreme. It was in vain that moderate
papers like the Colonist protested. The
protests wire interpreted *sa desire to
assist the Liberal party. It may be
doubted if the anti-French campaign
.gained the Conservatives more than two
or three seats in Ontario—the leaders ol
that province say it did not gain them
any, but that the Ontario majority was
due to tin 'condemnation by the English-
speaking voters ot that province of the
whole Laurier ministry—antl it certainly
lost many seats iti Quebec. It is a I act
that prominent Conservatives hoped lo
he able to divide quebec with the Liberals.    Up to the very last, tho Conserve-
ive lenders in this province looked for a
great rodiiclion in Lamier'a Quebec
lollowing. In the meantime everything
was being done around the Conservative
headquarters in the east to drive the
French together on the Liberal tide.
We saw one rct-ult of ibis fully in the
federal election. We see another in the
rematkahle In! of elections hy acclamation in the Quebec local contest. The
Colonist car. speak very freely upon this
poinI, because it rclmed to join it] the
luti-Freucli cry. Day after Jnr election
uatciial came from the east, most of ii
leprying the French. We refused to use
it. We did not. believe it would he a
patriotic thing to do anything calculated
to stir up stiife between tiie two elements of the Canadian population. Wi
think tiie result establishes the wisdom
uf our course. Victoria elected theCon-
ervative candidates, and neither they
lor the Colonist which supported them,
have to apologise for having any part in
the campaign policv which has made
the Conservative party in Quebec little
more than a memory. A united Canada is Impossible with the people ol
Jticcec arrayed almost en masse against
one of tho political parlies, antl if ever a
weighty patriotic duly rested upon the
Conservatives of Canada, it is to endeavor to restore Ihe standing of their party
in Quebec, in som-i degree at leant."—

n.xwell Elected In Burrard
(hiiUher In Vole-CarIbon.
Mr- Maxwells majirity in Burrard
will approach 700. The vote in Yale-
Cariboo with very few places to hear
from is Gailiher 2358, Foley 2690, McKane 2156.
One of the surprises was the large vote
which Foley the L-thor candidate polled.
Mr. Foley's chief support came from the
Kootenay country where the socialists
eleniont seems to be strong. For instance in Rossland Foley received as
many votes as the other two together.
The election in Vancouver is said lo
lie the hottest ever held there. One

Professor Yung of the University of
Guef, Switzerland, entertains great
fears concerning the future of our
lower limbs. This sage is of the opinion that within the next thousand
years human beings will have forgotten how to use their legs, and that
these limbs, If evolution will not do
away with them, will serve as mere
ornaments to the rest of the body.
fi-ofessor Yung states that at the
present age humau beings show a decided aversion to personal or physical
locomotion, and this is more manifest
every time a new automatic traveling
Instrument is invented and rendered
practical. Steam, electricity, cable
power aud the different velocipede machines all bear an Influence over us
and create a dislike for walking, and
the future generations will likely have
the convenience of steerahle airships
at their windows and electric automobiles at tbeir doors, nud these conveyances will be so cheap that almost
every oue can own them, nnd this
means the doom of our legs.
The latter will be regarded ns super-
lltiotis appendages, uo use will be made
of them, nud who knows but that they
may disappear altogether? But so
much more will our arms develop In
length and strength. These are the
cruel laws of evolution, nud It will be
due to their pranks that future generations will ngnin resemble the apes.
There will come another epoch of short
legs nnd long arms.

We publish below a complete synopsis of the Manitoba Elevator bill,
giving all the.salient points cud
provisions of the same:
Sections 1 to 18 are of an interpretation character, citing the title

Manitoba, providing for the appoint lnc-nt and defining the duties of
the warehouse commissioner, whose
heall oliice is located at Winnipeg.

weighing' grain. The fees are, for
each carload, 25 cents, and each cargo.   |kt   1,000   bushels,   «0   cents.
Sections 11 to -H deal with terminal elevators and warehouses, the
managers of which must procure a
license from the commissioner. Provision is made that such terminal elevators shall receive for storage any
grain, dry and ill a suitable condition for warehousing, that is tendered in the usual manner in which
elevators are accustomed to receive
grain In the ordinary and usual
course of business, not making any
discrimination between persons desiring to avail themselves of warehouse facilities-such grain to be in
all cases inspected and graded by a
duly authorized inspector, and to be
stored with grain of a similar
grade. In no case shall grain of a
different grades be mixed together
while   In  store.
Sect ions 20 to 42 are of more general interest to the public, as relating to country elevators, flat warehouses and loading platforms. All
elevators and warehouses are declared to be public, antl must secure an
annual license, as also being subject
to the government and control of
the rules and regulations promulgated by the governor-in-counoil.
Section 84 states that, "the person
operating such country elevator or
warehouse shall keep a true and correct account in writing, in proper
books, of all grain received, stored
and shipped at such elevator or
warehouse, stating the weight.,
grade and dockage for dirt or other
cause of each lot of grain received in
store for sale, storage or ohip-
lnent, except as hereinafter provided, and shall, upon the request of
any person delivering grain for storage or shipment, receive such grain,
w ihout discrimination as to persons, during reasonable and proper
business hours, and shall insure it
against loss by fire while in his elevator or warehouse, and shall, tqion
request, deliver to such person a
warehouse receipt or receipts therefor, dated the day the grain was received and specifying upon its faco
the gross and net weight of such
grain, the dockage for dirt or other
cause, and the grade of such grain
■when graded conformably to the
grade fixed by law and in force .at
terminal points; and every such receipt shall state upon Its face that
the grain mentioned in such receipt
has been received into store and that
upon the return ol" sueh receipt, and
upon payment or tender of payment
of all lawful charges for receiving,
storing, insuring', delivering or other
wise handling such grain, which charges may have accrued tip to the time
of the return of sueh receipt, such
grain is dellvorablo to the person on
whose account it has been taken into store, or bis order, either from
the elevator or warehouse where it
was received for storage, or, if

An Unexpected  Verdict on a Picture

While the late David Col, the great

with a sigh.
"Oh, you're fooling me, sir!" said the
farmer. "Just tell me whose picture thai
Is on the easel there."
"That is a permit of St. Anthony,"
was the niiswer.
"Is that really St. Anthony?"
"Did he sit to you?"
"Of course not."
"Well, then, Isn't that a clear proof
that you are able to make the portrait of
a dead man?"
Col, who wanted money badly, allowed
himself to be persuaded by this novel
argument, nnd, therefore, he obtained
from tho farmer aa many particulars
about the dead man ns ho could, and
then, after making a sketch of the son.
becnuse he Baid that he clusely resembled
his father, ho began work ou the portrait
When It was finished, he sent for the
farmer aud showed it to him, To his
surprise, the niiin fell ou Ids knees and
bugan to cry bitterly, his eyes meanwhile
fixed on the portrait. Col Battered him

and that It was the wonderful rosein
bianco which caused the son to grieve
■o sorely.
"Why do you cry so much?" lie asked
trying to comfort him.

Up for 20 minutes, and we soon lost sight
of the Kivcuouk and the other boats,
Aud then, as though tiring of pulling un
along, she suddenly showed Unites and
began to make for the bottom like a
load of pig lead. The rope, one end of
which was attached to the harpoon in
the whale's back, ran out of the boat so
fast that it looked like a thread of blue
" 'Cut that rope if it fouls,' cried the
mute, tossing me a hatchet, 'and lose no

us! Tlie beast is going to sound 100

"I bad just leaned forward to pick up
tbe implement when there was a sud

I knew that the rope bad fouled. The

"Wo could hear the crew manning the

Tlie yards of the warship were thronged,

hear the snuffling of the beast, nnd then

Mrs. John Simon, who told the story.
She wns traveling by night in the early
days of the Great Western railway from
Plymouth to Loudon:
"When I had taken off my cloak and
smoothed my plumes and generally settled myself, I looked up to see the most
wonderful eyes I ever saw steadily, luminously, clairvoyant ly, kindly, paternally
looking at me. The hat was over the

the brown velvet coat collar of the brown

them and said:

A Friend.hip That Wns of Great Vat
to lhe Former.
Dr. F. H. Oruie told me several good
glories about our old lime statesmen.
Among other anecdotes and Incidents the
doctor gave me some piquant reminiscences of Toombs and Stephens.
Toombs always tried to impress pcoph
with the belief thnt his genius made ll!_
equal tu any emergency. Even when
lie studied hard or availed himself of thr
labor of others he encouraged tho iilen
that Ills nw'st splendid efforts were Ihi
result of the Inspiration of tlie moment,
entirely offhand, without any special prep
mill ion for tlie occasion.
Once, -when a very important debnti
was going- on ia the federal congress.
T oinbs made a magnificent speech which
attracted everybody's attention.
It was not only an eloquent speech, but
it was remarkable for its masterly array
of facts and figures and its convincing arguments.
"Ynii must hnve devoted considerable
time to its preparation." suid oue of lhe
statesmen's admirers.
"Well, I gave about two hours to it,"
Toombs replied, wilh a careless, indifferent air.
Somebody repented tills to Stephens in
tlie presence of several congressmen.
"Two hours!" lie exclaimed, somewhat
Irritably. "Prepared that speech in two
hours, did tie? I spent two weeks on it
Thill's ail I care to say."
Stephens had patiently nnd laboriously
collected the statistics, aud Toombs laid
merely added the nourishes.
The two great Georgians attended a na
tioaal democratic convention shortly before the war, and Stephens was coaliiicd
to his bed just when lie could leust afford
to be laid up.
Afler an important caucus Toombs visited his friend and sal down by his bed
"Aleck," he said, "it was proposed to
nominate you for vice president, but I
told them that you did not want lhe oliice
ami would decline tile nomination, so
thoy took tiie other man."
"Toombs," replied the invalid, "when
you told them that you know you were
lying!"—AI In ntn ('uustilution
Marine Person—Yes, we're goln to
drag the river.
Simon Milkweed—So! Where ore

Tlie Mnry of One of Munknesy'H Fa-
morn* rn I ii Unu*.
Mnny nn incident in the career of
Michael Schroeder—created Huron Mun-
knezy in tiie Hungarian nobility—was
a pitiless illustration of tlie truth of
Ilrydotfs line Unit great wits are sure to
mildness near allied and iliin partitions
mark tlie bounds of separation.
His marvelous and fantastical career
both as man and as artist was marked
by n hundred episodes Unit might have
been construed as evidence of mi unbalanced mind, but it wns not until his reason became hopelessly clouded thnt lhe
world realized ia how tremulous a balance had hung the intellect which had
given it three pictures which won for
their painter fame, riches, decorations,
titles and a devoted regard such as is
bestowed upon very few men in any walk
of life.
His weird methods of conceiving nnd
working out Ins pictures never had a
more startling Illustration than In the
ease of his most famous canvas, "Christ
Before Pilate." This picture, which Is 20
feet long and 12 feel high, contains more
than 40 figures, All the figures save one
were sketched In with a rapidity almost
maniacal between dawn and twilight of
one day. The one Hpuce remaining empty
was that reserved for the figure of .loses,
and it remained so ninny dnys while
Munkaczy worked on tlie other figures.
As he approached tlie oasis of white can-
„ left untouched hy his blazing colors
the artistic nml devotional fervor grew
upon him, and lie shut himself nwuy
from the sight of man that he might iu
perfect solitude am] silence realize his
conception of tlie Man of Sorrows.
When the picture was finished mid had
brought him worldwide fame, lie always
insisted Unit while lie was sitting nlone
nnd lost in n profound reverie a white
vision limited before his eyes and passed
into the iinpninted spneo on the canvas.
The painter, slinking with excitement,
sprang forward and with trembling hands
painted lu lhe figure which had come to
111 III like the phantasmagoria of u dream.
However Ihe inspiration for that dead
white ligure, set mnid resplendent crimsons mid purples, came lo him, we nil
know what Its effect upon the world was
It is estimated that 2.000,000 people saw
it in the course of its triumphant lour
among nations, Courts, embassies, clergy, pagans. Jews. Mohammedans. Christinas. Ihe very humble and the very
trroiit, crowded to see it. Some were
moved to tears; others sank upou their
knees and prayed.
Tbe Tulip Crase.   -■-
Abouf the middle of the seventeenth
century the tulip became known in
Germany, and u scientist named (les
ner gives tbe first description of this
(lower. First only the yellow variety
was known, and then other colors were
produced by crossing. Tbe Dutch, particularly the citizens of Iiaai'lciu. produced tile most wonderful varieties of
this flower and obtained enormous
prices for them.
In 10114 the trade In tulips assumed a
peculiar turn. It degenerated Into a
sort of a game of chance, so that In
KIT.'! the authorities felt called upon to
Interfere and to Issue edicts against
extravagance In tulips, as they formerly had against trains and laces. This
Interference would seem to be justified
If one reads that in ISD0 a single flower
of this sort, called the Vlceorl. was
paid for with two cargoes of wheat,
four cargoes of rye. four fat oxen,
eight fat hogs, 12 fat sheep, two casks
of wine, four barrels of beer, two tons
of butter, 1,000 pounds of cheese, a
complete bed, a suit of clothing and a
sliver tankard.
Another bulb, tbo Semper Augustus,
was paid for with 4,000 gold guilders
and a coach with a double team of
horses. In Haarlem the tulip craze
reached Its height in the decade from
1030 to 1G40, when a price of 12.000
gold guilders (about $0,000 American
money) is recorded for a single bulb.
A SHORT ROAD to health was opened
to those suffering from chronio coughs,
asthma, bronchitis, catarrh, lumbago,
tumors, rheumatism, exuorinted nipples
or Inhumed breast, and kidney complaints, by thu lin rodiiotiou of the Inexpensive and effective remedy, Dr.
Thomas' Eoleatrlo Oil.
His Life For ii  Rami,
In n little Ic./n or village iu Gloucestershire there Is a church which
contains the mortal renin.ns of oue of
the old Crusaders. In iiiolilering of-
Ugy lie is depicted on the tomb, while
by his side In cold eloquence is imaged
the form of his wife. It will be noticed
by even the casual observer that the
female image Is bereft of oue of the
hands, aud the story runs that the
Crusader, while lighting in the east,
was made a prisoner of war and
brought before Salcdln, who, before
executing juilgiiier.i upou him, asked
him if there was auy reason why he
should not be put *o death. To this
the knight replied that he wns but
young, anil would leave n newly wedded
wife, who would bitterly rsioum his
"Tlie love of woman Is ns a fleeting
breath," retorted tlie sultan. "Your
Wife will forget that you have ever
lived; she will love again and marry
another." To this tho sad knight
could only reply thnt on her fidelity
be could rest his soul. "Well, then,"
replied Snladin, "I will promise on my
oath ns a soldier that if this man's
wife will cut olf one of her hands and
send It to uie I will set him free to
go to her." By tedious and slow Jour-
neyings the message enme, and she, In
all plteousuess for him who was her
lover and her lord, caused her hand to
be cut off anil sent it to the sultan,
who kept his word and set the Cru
slider free,

one hotel keeper from getting a
li ense to sell liquor.
The county W.C.T.U. convention
was held tin re recently, and the W.
C.T.U. dolotutos from llraniford,
al,mil sixteen ladies, hired a conveyance and driver from the livery.
Knowing that there was nn liquor
sold at the hotol, thoy- thought il
would bo a safe plnco for the young
mau to get his dinner. However, lite
proprietor, having no regard tor lhe
law, thought il would be exeelleul
fun to gel the driver of the W.C.T.U.
women drunk. So before It was time
for tin-in to return they learned that
their driver was in the bottom of tho
waggon dead drunk. Two of lhe
ladfea returned by train, and arrangements were nmde for the return of
tl.o others.
Within nbout ten days the proprietor of thai hotel was arrestod for soiling or giving li |iior without a license,
was convicted and sentenced lo pay

Not only In Camilla, Ism ill Every Civilized
Country I'liroughout tlie World—Merit
Alone has Givin Ihi- Medicine Its
Great  Prominence   Over   Competitors
The reputation achieved by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills not only in
Canada, but throughout the world,
rests upon a very solid basis, which
may be summed up in two words-
sterling merit. The Enterprise has
had occasion to investigate a number of cures effected by this medicine, and knows that in some instances at least these cures were
wrought nfter other medicines had
failed even to give relief. Recently another cure came under our notice Unit cannot fail to increase the
popularity of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills in the locality in which it occurred, and us we can vouch for the
facts, it may well bring hope to
sufferers elsewhere.
Mr. Walter H. Johnson is ono of
the best known residents of Ilia
northern section of Queen's county.
He resides in tho town of Caledonia,
where be keeps an hotel, und also
runs a stage that carries passengers
and mail between thnt town and
Liverpool, a distance ot some thirty
miles. Mr. Johnson was in Bridge-
Water recently, on which occasion ho
gave a reporter of this paper tlio
following facts: About throe years
ago he was taken very ill. He had
tho best of medical attendance, but
made very little progress towards recovery, and the doctor told him
there was very little hope that he
would be able to return to his former work. The trouble appeared to
have located itself in his kidneys,
and for eight weeks or more he was
confined to bed. He suffered greatly
from constant pains in the back, his
appetite became impaired and. his,
constitution generally appeared to bo
shattered. At this juncture ho decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and got a half dozen boxes. In the
course of a couple of weeks he noticed an improvement in his condition and he continued the use of the
pills until ho had taken some ten or
twelve boxes, when he not only felt
that his euro was complete, but also
felt that in all respects his health
was better than it had been for
years. Since that time ho has been
continually driving his coach between Caledonia and Liverpool, and
has not had the slightest return of
the trouble, notwithstanding " tbat
he has to face at. times very inclement weather, that might, well bring
on a return of the trouble had not
his system been so strongly fortified
against it through the. use of Dr.
Williams'  Pink Fills.
If the blood is pure and wholesome disease cannot exist. The reason why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
cure so many forms of disease is
that they act directly upon tho blood
and nerves, thus reaching lhe root of
tho trouble. Other medicines act
only upon the symptoms of the
trouble, und that is the reason
the trouble always returns when you
cease these medicines. Dr. Williams
Pink Pills make permanent cures in
kidney troubles, rheumatism, erysipelas, anaemia and kindred diseases.
But be sure you. get tlie genuine
which bear tlie full name Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People on
tho  wrapper  around   every   box.
