Hotel Victoria,
We publish two communications ilits week
referring to our fditoiial of la^t week on the
hospital quest ion. We would ngain request
our  correspondents to  iivoiil  personalities.
Tn our firs, issue we slntetl uur platform,
which Included the avoidance of personalities, aiul we mean to slick to uur position or
"ell out. We have ho axe to grind. We
serve no party. We fear nu foe. If we,
after ilue consideration, consider any act de-
trimental to public interest, no matter by
whom it is committed, be he great or small,
we shall calmly, yet persistently, oppose
such act by word and deed.
Mosl of our readers are aware that our
member stated in public some months ago,
that lhe government was tardy in giving
further support lo hospitals, ytt, in spite of
ihis tardiness, Mr. Smith has been able to
secure $1,500 for the erection ol an hospital.
We ought to give him credit fur his successful statesmanship in this particular.
But il is- now staled thai Mi. Smith objects to iho money being spent lor this purpose at the present time, because of the
lull in mining affairs. One ol" our correspondents refers to this, and his argument
in connection thereto will bear repetition.
If there is to be such a stagnation lhat a
small hospital will nol he requirid, why
build lhe larger jail now being erected?
Our member must be most pessimistic as
10 the people's morals to suppose lhat the
reduced population which he appears to anticipate, will need increased accomodation
in tlie jail. What struggles and quarrels
dues he prognosticate? Will not those same
quarrels which lead some to the jail, lead
Arrangements in connection with the night
watchman are progressing rapidly. The list,
which is almost complete, shows an aggregate ot about $55, which will be enough at
present. Il i*. of course, expected thai more
will be obtained as time goe< on. As the
projectors of this scheme are determined to
make il a success, and allow no opposition
to daunt them, the nightwati hiiian is practically an assured fact. Complete arrange-
inenls will be made al a public meeting 10 be
held thi; month.

To the Editor of tha Prospector.
Sir—From tha tone ol the leading
article in ycur lost week's issue, you
would leHd people to infer tnat our
member is opposed to the erection of
nn hospital iu this town. How you
bave arrived at sucli a conclusion puzzles nie. JDo you suppose that our
member would have exerted himself to
obtain Biich an appropriation of $1 500
ior an hospital building, succeed in
getting it and then not intend tbat such
an appropriation should ne spent.
Ridiculous I II an hospital was needed
before Mr. Smith went away in the
spring, it is doubly neeeBsary now, aB
recent eventB bave shown. An Hospital is wanted, and will be built; pro-
] bably it is onlv the question of its site
that is delaying the commencement
of the work.
Then again you write that some appropriation Bhouid be made to the Anderson Lake Mining Company ior
some road work they have done. Well,
that will be given them without doubt.
As this Company is one ot tbe Gold
producing mines in this district, they
certainly should bo encouraged,and the
company has only to apply iu a proper
manner and, of course, will receive the
consideration that is due lotlicin.
You arc never going to tell me that
our member, who obtained some $350
for Mr. Leslie Hill to experimentalize
in trail making Irom Gun Creek to
Cadwallader Creel;, cannot, or will not
obtain the same amount tor the Ander-
Bon Lake Company for ilia work they
have done on McGillivray Creek, work
too, which bus benefited the whole district.

We would lirie to enquire, of the powers

erection of a residence for the constable, for j
which we understand au appropriation has \
been granted.    As far  as we   can ascertain
no specifications have been prepared, no ten-1
ders called for. and no  lumber ordered.    If
this house is lo be built befote winter, it behoves somebody to get a move on.

It is a popular error to speak cf

The truth, oi course, is that only a
portion of the park is fashionable,
and this portion is constantly being
Early in the reign of Charles II.,
and well on into the reigns of the
Georges, it was to the King, the ornamental ground attached to the
banrque ting-house and the Tyburn
meadow in the northeast comer,
where Park Lane and Bays water road
now are, that the gallants and -fair
women (locked, and, indeed, this was
the first spot in the park to be rendered exclusively smart.
Tlie section of London that lives
for enjoyment drifted to Kensington
gardens, where the court in thu
reigns of William and Wary and
Queen Anne lived so much at tlie recently-acquired country house, Kensington Palace, and there walking,
in the slow and affected manner of
the day, rendered necessary by the
extraordinary headgear that prevailed and the stiffly formal hoops
and suits that were worn, was a la
mode, for then, as now, no coaches
or carriages were allowed in those
sylvan glades. Thus it was the
northeast corner nnd the southwest
walks that -fashion favored up to the
beginning of  the 10th century.
Hyde Park from the very earliest
times has been a favorite locality for
military reviews, and the red dawn
of the nineteenth century, when wars
and rumors of wars inflamed the air,
was naturally appropriated to displays of martial skill. Jn 1799 there
was an encampment of the volunteers
on the central space in the park that
attracted every sightseer, end in
1814 a serpentine sensation was
memorable, for then during a warlike display on those ornamental waters a lilliputiaii British frigate blew

Another great and popular occasion made the high bare ground of
the centre of the park the resort of
all and sundry in the fifties, for it
was on May 1, 1851, that our late
beloved Queen opened the Great Exhibition of the Industry of all Nations in the glass house, now known
as thc Crystal Palace.
Considering the long innings Vf.e
Tyburn or Dayawater side enjoyed
-during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, if is not surprising
lhat in the nineteenth the cast and
south sides abutting on Park Lane
and Knightsbridge, should have
prospered exceedingly. Every son of
gay n-union has trended into those
parts. The Lady's Mile and Rotten
Row have been the rendezvous of fair
equestienne nnd rich carriage folk,
while thc promenades from Grosvenor
Cate to the Barracks, Knights-
bridge, have been the resort of pedestrians who go to see nnd tie seen
on Sundays all the year round, and
in tho season during the morning
and afternoon. Our late Queen in
ber youth was a fearless rider, and
often in the first, years of her reign
frightened her Ministers by mounting horses they considered over fresh
for military reviews. It was she who
set the fashion tor riding, and among
the fashionable the morning rendezr
vous at Hyde Park Corner for a canter in the Row became an institution. Probably because the gate
known as Hyde Park Corner was the
nearest to Buckingham Palace and
owed a second incentive to modish-

of the Puke of Wellington's residence
(he who was society's hero), the concourse of pedestrians and carriages

Parllamantar? Contest! in the Land of th«
Melbourne witnessed tho extremes
of expenditure during the contest for
seats in the Commonwealth House
of Representatives. The candidate
who spent most was Sir Malcolm Mc-
Eacharn, a member of the firm of
Mcllwraith, McEachran & Co. His
election for the city of Melbourne is
understood to have cost some £50,-
000. Ile is married to the daughter
of the late mining king of the Ben-
digo gold held, and his period of oflice as mayor of Melbourne was signalized by hospitality on a scale
of unprecedented splendor. On tlie
other hand, a commonwealth adjoining Sir Malcolm's has been won by
tlie nominee of the Labor Party,
Frank Tudor, an employe in tho Denton hat mills, Melbourne. Mr. Tudor
says his expenses will amount to less
than £60. As a member of the
House of Representatives lie will receive a salary of £4.00 a year.
One candidate for a seat ii> tlie
Australian Commonweal th Parliament issued on tho eve of election
the following statement: "1 havo
traveled in tlie conduct of this contest more than 10,000 miles, a large
portion on foot. I have published
and circulated, chiefly by my own
hands, or by those of members of
my own family, 1,700,000 pages of
literature in book form. I have published 139,000 copies of speeches delivered in the constituency, and 125,-
000 copies of four-page circulars. It
is utterly impossible that this
amount of work and literature can
fail to have its effect." Alas! it
was only too possible. The candidate who tramped, printed, and
published on this colossal scale found
himself at (lie bol torn of tiie poll
when tlie numbers were up. — London  Chronicle.
Royal Tenderheartedtiesi,
Englishmen with sporting proclivities have been loudly condemning
King Edward for the abolition of
that time-honored sport known as
"tiie royal hunt." As if to justify
the King's action, a startling example of the cruelty of this sport
occurred recently in the heart of
Windsor and under the very shadow
of  tlie castle.
A stag, hunted by a pack from a
distant district, rushed through the
centre of the town, leaped over
fences into the Long Walk, and then
essayed to jump thc gateway at the
sovereign entrance. The gateway was,
however, too high, even for a frantic
stag with a howling pack and huntsmen (and women) at his heels, and
he fell back, lacerated in the chest
by thc spiked railings. Doubling
back, tlie animal cleared the six or
Beven foot fence inclosing Frogmore,
and so made its way into the Home
Park, panting, terrified and bleeding.
King Edward, returning from a
drive round old Windsor, came upon
the scene. Dulling up. he called for
particulars of the incident, and then
went on to the castle, after giving
instructions as to thc treatment <>f
the hunted stag w>en it was caught.
What His Majesty exactly said we
do not pretend to say, but from rg-
marks subsequently dropped by some
who were present, we are quite entitled to say that the King realized
in this occurrence nn abundant justification for tlie stoppage ,,f "the royal hunt," and nn argument for the
abolition nf tame stag hunting. —

Rumored  Ravivtil "f   Entertainment! to
lie Uitde by ihe Kins— GUU
Scottish   Hearta.
Many a Scottish heart has bci'n
stirred by thu mere rumor that once
again scenes of royal pageantry anil
kingly entertainment may be enacted
within the walls of llolyrood Palace, says The London Telegraph. The
very name is eloquent of bygone
days. Picturesque memories cluster
around the old grey walls, which
have seen so many deeds of derring-
do and high emprise. With them is
bound up indissolubly the sad story
of the Stuaris, some of whom were
born, married, died and were buried
within the palace. Parliaments and
councils charged with the fate of the
nation deliberated in its rooms. Edward Balliol there made submission
to Edward III. of England. There
the Siottish kings made their home
for centuries, ami there, above all,
linger cherished traditions, however
indefensible in historic judgment, of
the beautiful and unhappy Mary
Queen of Scots aiul the Bonnie Prince
Charlie. To this day Queen Mary's
audience chamber, her tiny bedroom,
and still tinier supping room, where
her favorite liizzlo was struck down
under her eyes, are among the most
venerated of the historic shrines uf
Sent land.
If ii should come to be that a British King again summons his Scottish subjects to meet him within its
walls the invitation will have a certain poetic fitness, for within the
palace was celebrated the union of
the thistle and Ihe rose—the marriage
of .James IV. of Scotland to Margaret Tudor, which, alter a hundred
years more of strife, brought thc
union of thu crowns. The palace has
in ils time seen evil days. In 1101
and 1547 English armies burned it.
and though it was restored it again
fell victim to a lire, which broke out
while Cromwell's soldiers wero in
possession. Again, it rose, .lames I.
of England was crowned in it as
King James VI. of the Scots, and
Charles I. was crowned there, too,
and James VII., as Puke of Albany,
held court within the palace. In it,
too, Bonnie Prince Charlie, in the
brief heydey of his fortunes, held
kingly state, before he sought the
stricken fields of England. But thesi
days belong rather to the Held of
history and romance. The foreshadowing of royal state being ro-
sutned at llolyrood makes doubly interesting the last great visit of state,
which was paid to it in IH'2'2 by
King George IV.
True, her late Majesty, Queen Victoria, visited Holyrood on many
occasions, especially when her eon-
sort was still spared to her. She
then made it a hailing place •for n
few days on her way to and from
Balmoral; hut tlie palace was a residence rather than a cinirl . State
functions were few and limited for
the must part lo the romantic customs of the presentation to Her
.Majesty of the keys of I he city by
the lord provost and magistrates,
and of threo barbed arrows by the
company of archers, the royal bodyguard in Scotland, a ceremony dating from 1670. The Queen stayed in
Holyrood on the occasion of the
great review of Scottish volunteers
in 1.881,, and again—the last time
royalty slept within thu walls—in
1886, when ller Majesty opened Edinburgh International Exhibition
Year by year the palace is the seat
for a fortnight in May of the royal
representative, th" Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly <>f
the Church of Scotland, who time
gives i scries of dinners to the Scot-
tish clergy and other dignitaries; hut
these functions, though nominally
royal in their character, are far removed from th" splendor and gaiety
usually associated  wilh  court   scenes.
Tlio Fi.rm crops of Ireland.
Potatoes have ceased to lie the
principal root crop of Ireland, if
they are to be compared with turnips by weight of yield — last year,
for    example,    only ahout  1 ,s ILi.	
tons, against 4,426,000 tons of turnips. Nor Was the potato acreage.
though twice as great as that of the
heavier root, nearly the largest
given to any crop. That of oats was
larger by 450.000 acres. The Irish
product of oats was much greater
than the Scotch nnd Welsh put together, and amounted to 504.000,-
(Kio bushels, against 73,600,000
bushels raised in England.
What has to be deplored nowadays
in Irish agriculture is not dependence on a single crop, hut a general
tendency to a shrinkage in area of
all arable laud. In spite of an increase of 40,000 acres devoted to
mangel wurt/.el and beet, this shrinkage has been one of '.}- per cent,
since is.-,."!.
The distinctively Irish crop of
flax hns lost ground since 1.X7U to
the extent of nearly 7o por cent.
Land either becomes meadow. or,
more largely, goes out of cultivation. In these circumstances it is
gratifying to see that a rally to flax
last year wns rewarded by an exceptionally line harvest. As compared
with the year before, the area given
to it was 85 per cent, greater . i"i
the yield -12 per cent greater. Much
inure than twice as much honey was
also produced as the average '.'.'"i.jln
for ten years back. —Belfast iVcekly

It doesn't seem possible that in this

Why   It   Keens   Better   Thnn   nutter
That Im I-'resh.
Why does salt butter keep better
than fresh butter? We must lirst realize thnt the bacterial population of a
moderate sized pat of butter mny be
reckoned by millions, that a tiny lump
only large enough to go into n thlinblo
has been known to be tenanted by
uenrly 48.000,000, that, in fact, in consuming a slice of bread nnd butter you
mny unconsciously be assimilating Individual lives exceeding In number
those of the whole of Europe. Thus
the urgency for keeping these hordes in
check nnd hencv the efforts which are
made, first, to set up effectual barriers
to their ingress by taking proper precautions in the production of milk and,
second, in the conduct of the processes
involved in the manufacture and distribution of the finished article.
Included in these processes Is the nd-
dltion of snlt In such quantities ns to
justify the butter being known ns snlt
butter, this ndditioti being made with
the object of extending the keeping
powers of the butter or. in other words,
to suppress lo a large extent the activities of the butter bucterin. Thnt snlt
dues net in this iii'.,iincr Is shown by
the frtct thnt in butter thus treated a
very large reduction in the minfber of
nilero-orgnnlsins present is effected.
There can be little doubt, therefore,
that the common butler microbes do
not by nny means regard salt ns their
elixir of life.
In England borncic acid Is said to bo
extensively used In butter as a preservative or antiseptic agent, whlly In ihe
United Stntes a recent public health
document states thnt none wns reported to have been found In the samples
of butter examined. This is probably
due to the fact thnt In America there
exists n strong prejudice in fnvor of
suit butter, whereas In England the use
of salt butter Is the exception nml not
the rule. Hence in America suit cnn
be used ns a preservative Instead of the
boracic acid employed for thut purpose
In England.
The densely populated condition of
butter above referred to Is not to be
wondered at If we realize that the raw

Health and Vitality
For the Old People.
Wasted muscles, shattered nerves and failing strength may-
result from old age as well as from disease. As old age creeps
on vitality is lowered, the heart beats more slowly, the blood
becomes thin and watery and the power of resistance is lessened. It is the old people above all others wio require the
new life and energy which comes with the use of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food.
Scores and hundreds of old people depend on Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food to restore their exhausted nerve force and replace
their wasted tissues. It calms and quiets the nerves, gradually
and certainly enriches thc blood and builds up the system, and
makes old people feel again the thrill of new life antl vigor in
their shrivelled arteries. From childhood to old age this famous
Food Cure is the greatest blessing which medical science has
bestowed on mankind.

From the Review, Windsor,  Ont.
"Ur. Williams' Pink Pills is the.
only medicine that ever gave me any
real benefit,:' said Mrs, R. K. Harris,
a well known resident of Windsor, to
a representative of the Review recently." I do not know exactly
what my trouble was; doctors seemed unable to tell me, though I
thought myself it was consumption.
1 had a constant racking cough, and
a constant feeling of languidness.
My blood seemed to have turned to
water, und I was very pale. I had
a feeling in my chest as though some
foreign substance was lodged there.
The slightest noise made me nervous;
I was dejected all the time and could
not scarcely do any household work.
T tried medicines, but they did not
help in" in tin' least. Doctors did
not seem able to help me or till nie
wliai ailed ine. although their bills
Increased wiih alarming rapidity. I
grew so weak, and so despondent
that finally I decided to take a trip
to Colorado to see if a change of
climate would benefit me. While
Contemplating this trip I read in a
paper one day thc testimonial of a
person whose symptoms were almost
identical with my own, who was
cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
decided to give them a trial and
purchased a box. When that box
was done I got another, and found
gradually (hat the pills were helping
me. The trip to Colorado was
abandoned, and I continued using the
pills until I hnd taken eight or nine
boxes when I felt like an altogether
different person. I became the picture of health, and felt it too. It is
several years since I used the pills,
and 1 have not had any return of the
trouble. I am positive Pr. Williams'
Pink Pills saved me from an early
grave, and I cannot recommend them
too highly to those who arc afflicted
as I was."
It is the mission of Ur. Williams'
Pink Pills to make rich, red blood,
nourish the nerves', tissues and various organs of the body, and thus by
reaching th.' root of the trouble,
drive disease from the system. Other
medicines act only on the symptoms
of the disease, and when such medicines ar" disenntmued. The trouble
returns—often in an aggravated form.

Tho hazy, stupid Shnsr.
"The shag is the laziest and most stupid form of life to bo found anywhere
ou the globe. Il is an aquatic fowl,
wiib big, clumsy looking beak and with
a form something like the dodo, now
extinct," snid a western man. "I havo
spent much time in watching this fowl,
"which is found in some of the shallow
hikes, and the chief point of interest
to me was tlie startling stupidity displayed. They generally squat on
stumps or logs in the lake nud watch
fur the smaller fish that play around
the surface of the water. They are
fairly clever iu catching what tfciy
want, and they throw out llieir bill
with considerable precision when they
gig for game. Hut they never get to
eat what they catch until they have fed
at least one and maybe more than one
member of another kind of water fowl.
"Whenever a shag begins to catch
lish, a long legged, long necked wnter
hen will take a place Immediately behind him. When the shng lands a lish,
the water hen simply reaches over and
gets it. Without any show of resentment and without turning around, the
shag will continue its watch for fish,
and this is kept up until the water hen
has finished a meal, and then, If no
other enterprising member of the same
tribe comes along, the shag is permitted to enjoy the product of Its own
sleepy efforts.
"I kave on one occasion seen one shng
feed ns many ns three water hens before eating a single lish. It Is certainly a singular display of stupidity, and
nfter having watched the performance
a number of times I am convinced that

"Now, look a-here," growled the young

A blank expression flickered over the

An Alberta Man Reports His Entire
Satisfaction With tlie World Famous Remedy—Blood Disorder the
Cause of His Trouble—Dodd's
Kidney Pills Have Removed it
and He Is Thankful.
Blalrmore, Alberta., July 22.-(Speo-
ial)—Dodd's Kidney Pills are just as
well thought of in the Ureat Northwest as they are any place else in
the world. The people have confidence In them. They'do as they ore
claimed to do.
Nor is the claim a small one
Dodd's Kidney Pills nre claimed to
cure some of ihe most dangerous and
deadly maladies that flesh is heir to
and what is more, thoy do it. The
proof is positive Thoueands and
thousands of reputrble people attest
Por instance, every one knows
Dright's Disease meant at one time
meant the sentence of death. Does
it now ■> Ask Arthur Colely. of Somerset. Man. He Y7ns cured of Dright's
Disease, the last, singes of it, by
Dodd's  Kidney I ills.
Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure the
lesser disorders < f the human system
arising from Kidney Disease with
just as much certainty, and an even
greater promptness. Of these, Skin
Eruptions, such as Bolls and Pimples, arising from an impure state of
the blood ure not the most uncommon or the least, distressing. Dodd's
Kidney Pills, by improving the action of the kidneys, purify the blood,
and Boils and Pimples immediately
Walter II. A. Noble, of Blairmore,
Alberta, writes in this connection :
"I had been troubled with Pimples
all over my face and Backache. T
tried everything to cure it, all kinds
of medicine, but failed
I was told to try Dodd's Kidney
Pills and did so at once. I got three
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills and
took one after every meal. They cured nie. They are the only things
that ever did mo any good. I will
always use Dodd s Kidney Pills in
case of sickness and advise all other
sufferers to do so "

If every dog has his day, there

There never was, nnd never will bel a
universal panacea, in one temedy, for all ills
to winch fl sh is heir—the very Dature of
maoy curatives being eueh that were tli.
germs of oilier and differently seated diseases, rooted in the system of the patient—
what would relieve one ill m turn Would aggravate tl'e oth r. We have, however, in
Quinine Wine, when obtainable in a sound,
unadulterattd state, a remedy for man:; aud
grievous iils. By its gradual and judicious
use the frailest systems are led inio convalescence and strength by the influence which
Quinine exerts t.n nature's own restoratives.
It relieves the drooping spirits of those with
whom a chronic state of morhid despondency and lack of uiterer-t in life is n disease,
and, by tranquihzing the nerves, disposes to
sound und refreshing sleep—imparts vigor
to the action of the blood, which, being
stimulated, courses Ihroughout the veins,
strengthening ihe Ilea thy animal functions
of the system, thereby making activity a
necessary result, stieiiglhening the frame,
and giving life to the digestive organs, which
naturally demand increased substance—result, improved appetite. Northrop _ Lyman.
of Toronto have given to the public iheir
superior Quinine \. ine at the usual rale, and,
gauged by the opinion of scientists, thi.
wine approaches nearest perfection of any in
the market.   All druggists sell it.

Fall Di riT t ion-. For tho Din, pit very of
Thia Sort of Indivldnal,
I reiul n fable some time ago. It was
ubout a "piker." But it seems to me tbat
tho writer -IM m>t understand the nature
of the prehistoric but recently classified
piker.    He says n piker is a man who
has all liis g Is In liis show window.
Tin' statement is faulty in three respects.
A piker is on no occasion a man, he has
no Roods and no window.
A piker is a fellow who plays a two
call live sort of a game nnd frequently
edges a nickel to change his luck. He is
the fellow who says, "Put up for roe,"
and along in the stretch of the same
breath reminds you that you aro his debtor in the sum of twei ty odd cents.
(Adam was the first piker. He would
not steal the apple, but he very willingly
helped poor Eve to cat it, and it's a safa
bet he split the fruit.)
He will regale you for hours with opinions formed upon Denver on a one day
stop over ticket. lie gets a severe headache when he takes a lady to a "European plan" restaurant. It is he from
whom you first learn that "standing
room only" tickets to the opera company
nre all gone. He thoroughly enjoys a
week stand minstrel show with "ladies'
night," but honestly lacks conception of
classical music of high histrionic art- Ho
can't see why he shouldn't be a two time
winner when he entered the 2:20 class
with a straw collar and chain tugs.
A piker is a fellow who's been up
against it—ma: who's seen things—with
pa; who's been around some—around
The fellow who is always waiting for
something to turn up is a piker. He's
afraid to turn over n rock looking for nn
opportunity for fear that he might find
something Injurious, never once considering tho effectiveness of n rock under
such circumstances, nor does he figure
thnt he would at least be one rock ahead.
There are pikers in every line of business and every place of pleasure. The
follows who beat the water with a fishing
pole and want to go home because lish
won't bite; who get tin? hack fever on
a rainy dance night; who tell you they'll
see vim through; who "stag" it; who
drop in while yon are doing the good
to a number of friends at a soda fountain
and remind you of something you wanted
tn forget: who tell you that they don't
need the money just now; who wonder
how Jones lives and where Higgins gets
his money; who are conservative or common, arcording to the financial thermometer; who lose a game of billiards and
tell you tbey did so purposely to lighten
your expense: who will borrow, but won't
lend in a game; who won't advertise, because every one knows tbey are in business; who won't support the ball team
nor the churches—they are all pikers.
The first step which Identifies this hull,
vidual is "telling the teacher;" next ho
reveals your confidences; then he knocks
on you. A knocker is a mossback, ami
mossbacks are pikers.
