Canada. I did not think that we wero
going up there, and make a conquest
of thc country, but I could not see
any chance of its getting away from

to make my bow to the Legislature,

There is nol.liin<> thai so needs
to lie brought' before llie-niiinls
of young' men in llie West as (lie
duties of citizenship. Every one
might to make himself nciiniinl-
ed with liis duties ns a citizen,
lie ought to study social questions, aud make himself a. politician, It is nonsense for people to
say that the less men have to do
wilh politics the better. If political life is corrupt purify it by refusing to sell your vote, by voting for the best man, whether
Liberal or Conservative, and by
holding no grudge against the
man in the opposite party. 1
think I am right when 1 say the
study of social and civic questions among us has given plnce to
a. morbid interest iu individual
members of the Provincial and
Federal legislatures. There used
to be in every community, societies in which the vital questions
of polities were eagerly debuted.
Some of the leading statesmen
of our own day owe much to
these societies. Ii- the days of
Chartism there were iu every vil-
lagegn-tips of enthusiastic youth
among whom political questions
were keenly discussed. Their
minds became familiar with public affairs, and they were able to
give reasons for (heir political
faith. Out of such discussions
leaders were horn,and Ihey mnde
their influence felt iu the national life. Much of this has passed
away. Youths cycle, play football, read novels, huthave to depend on others to tell how to
vote, as they have not studied
civic questions. They have no
political convictions, and, when
lhe time comes for them to exercise their vote, they have only a
few prejudices and heresay opinions tog.ii.le them. This is greatly to be deplored. It means the
decadence of citizenship. It
menus the decay of political intelligence. I ct in see nothing so
advantageous at present to the
community thnn a. revival of
those meetings iu which the principles of government and policies
are earnestly studied and debated, for at the bottom of all national error there lies political ignorance.

Uf-uoii   DRINKERS  CURED,   Easily, Siftly, Absolutely.
AT home,   With no loss of Time or Labor.
There is an enl uhten.'d aid n"w which takes h'olil of a man instant Iv.
Instead of dulling a drinker it (lives him almost immediately Ine si ap :■(
new life and p.iwer—let. the ptiiiliuht of lioj e intu hi; soul at once and
sets bin mind into operation with ali iis be.t intelligence — a prompt result of effects on ihe neives, st'much and w'tole hotly which are quick
and mat velous. While at this point the cure has only he^im, the encouragement i. t-o great that piobably no medical woik equals ibis in
satisfaction to a patient.
With iti. h«lp against the drink habit any man who wants to lift from
li _ life the handicap of liquor using can do so wflh immediate results.
Tliis guaranteed treatment is within reach of all. Convenient temn can
he arranged satisfactory to any one who is at all rea-onahle, though, as
all people understand, it does rot compaie with tbe wmthless quack
cures advertised at so much per package, or "Free", etc. It i* a different
matter from all this to perfect a cour.e of thorough, .pedal, personal
treatment lhat will really do the work and cure forever. It is a t-erious
undertaking and requites a high form of scientific professional w >i k. All
the d.ffeieni kinds of oases are li indled under guaranteed results. Only
•kill that is developed to the highest can doit.. Only professional fees
can pay for the time it requires, though they are made moderate and convenient for anybody. The met hods of practicei used in this work has cost
years of time, vast study and expensive experiments. The originator, Dr.
William H. Saiiiider9, had attracted wide notice for his workson Neivous
diseases I ing before perfecting this Ireatinent. And still nothing but care
and personal attention to cases today makes it possible fo- him to accomplish the absolu'e cures which be guarantees. So the reader will see
ihis treatment mean* thorough scientific, professional attention. Hut it
also means results that are absolutely certain. Tlie splendid first effects
on a man are alone worth the entire cost of treatment.
Tins treatment can he given WITH or WITHOUT tbe knowledge of
the pa'ient and can be placed in any of his foods or liquids lhat he ntes,
and lieine colotless and tasteless, it does its work so silently and quickly
that the i! ntikard is reclaimed even again, t his will and wi bout bis
knowledge ami co-operation. Ti.e wife mated for years to a husband addicted to ilrs curse will wonder if curing her husband bv her own efforts
can be true. "Ii it possible that there is such a glotious opp irtuuily?"
'be will ask. And Ihtm-ai'ds of wives who have pit it to the test and ie-
j «ice in the reclamation of heir spouies who seemed lost to all sense of
self-respect, generosity and manliness will trumpet out to Ihe world,
'•Ye«, i» is true". Our treatment is purelv vegetable, contains no narcotics, opiates, poisons or mineials. We u>-e no hypodermic In jec'ion of gold,
nor any dangerous compound. It can be taken at hnine without any loss
nr detention from business. It. Humiliates the nervous system at once,
increases the appetite, and afford.-, perfect res:, at. ni_rht. It acts directly
upon the stomach, builds up '-ll* whoie system, eliminates all trice of liquor from the body and leaves the patient in the s.une condition as if liquor
had never been laken.

Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers.       *c^)
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beei
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the 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.
Anderson lake and BRIDGE HiVEii 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 numhers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, hear, 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, aud
at the present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may he seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest Railway towns are ashckoft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.

When England and France undertook to uphold the totteiiag Turkish
Empire, and throw themselves upon
Russia in the Crimean War, the former country, as Lord Salis nil'y has
since said, "put. ils money i.n the
wrong horse." However, tbe "wrong
horse" was fust under the vviie.
When the war vvas about at an end,
Lord Lyndhurst vigorously declared
that "there rould be no place without lirst destroying Russia's Black
Sea fket, and laving prostrate the
fo; titrations which protected it."
Therefore the great docks and
defences of Sebastopol, designed in
1S30 by an English engineer, were
demolished, ai.d the Treaty of Paris
Whi h concluded the conflict expressly
provided that the fortress should not,
be rebuilt and that the Black Sea
should be free from the warships of
eveiy power. The key to the Llack
Sea is the Dardanelles, swinging ostentatiously at the Sultan's guide.
Russia's eye has ever Leen  upon it.
frirst Violation of Trent}'.
Piince Qortchakoff, whoso ambition
it was to be the Liiaiarck of ltus.ia,
saw his opportunity in 1870 when
France and Germany were at. war.
He issued a curt notification of the
Czar s intention to abrogate that
clause of the Treaty of Paris which
forbade ihe rebuilding of Sebastopol.
France was in no position to object;
England could not but file a formal
proUst. Thus Sebastopol is stronger than ever 1 efbre.
An Alleged Breach of Faith.
By the treaty of Berlin in 1878,
which made peace between Russia
and Turkey after their second con-
lict, all the powers were rewarded
for their kindly forbearance, it vvas
then that Britain got Cyprus, while
the BU.c'.v Sea was made formally
what it already was geographically,
a Russian lake. No restrictions wero
removed, however, from the passage
of the Dardanelles. These straits
were to remain inviolate. The
Czar's land frontier was extended to
embrace Kars, a port of |Batoum. ll
was stipulated that Batoum should
remain unfortified, but Russia soon
found occasion to disregard that provision. This violation formed the
text for other charges of bad faith;
but it is said now that there wns. a
secret understanding among the powers at the time of the treaty thut
Batoum might be protected.
.* Wonderful Athlete.
Some time ago we expressed astonishment at lhe performance of Prebendary Webb-Peploe, who in
month's Quiver, is said to
jumped from a skk-bed, won
event in the university sports,
then returned to bed, aud "remained
on lis hack for the next twelve
months," A letter from ?_!>. Webb-
Peploe assures us that this i.s in tho
main accurate, but au under-stale-
ment. lie did it twice, and won tbo
high jump and diving alu| swimming
iu the intervals of a three years' reclining—not exactly in hed, but on a
sofa. "Where 1 went the spinal couch
went," writes Mr. Webb-Peploe. And
to thc spinal couch came even tho
Cambridge examiners to pass him
through his examinations to his degree. It was a notable triumph of
mind over matter, and we are glad
to get. confirmation of these extraordinary exploits from their doer.—■

Kipling la Fond of IMe.
Rudyard Kipling, it appears, is
fond of apple pie baked on the American system. To gratify liis taste a
glass rolling pin spe'.inlly used in
the manufacture of these pies has
just been forwarded to the novelist,
from Wanamaker'g. The glass rolling pin has among other advantages the mc it of always being
sweet and clean, and of being hollow
so that it can be liiled with ice to
cool the I'ie crust. When Mrs. Kipling, who is an American, was In
that country last summer, she greatly admired this contrivance, and
knowing that her husband and children were fond of American pies, decided to get them the next bc^t
thing b.v having hjr pies made with
an American rolling pin. TIIE  J-I.OS!\I':CT()i:. LILLOOKT, B.C., SEPTEMBER fi, 1903.

Iii the annual rcpon on the public
necotints "f Canada for li•('-, tin
Uoputy :Winist_r, Mr. J. ~l. Court'
noy, o/Ters the following reinarl s:
"1 lind that this i.s Ll\e twenty-fifth
annual lopoit I Have had the honor
to present as l.'eptity Ministsr of Finance.    At  the    tin i    llie publi a-
tion of my lir.-i leport, the f.u il.t.es
for keufdng in touch vvilb thu diflcr-
ent purls of the Dominion wore very
different from what Ui.y aie to-day,
At thai lime it was a matter of as
much difficult}.-' to go from the eastern part of tlio Dominion to the
western part as it is to-duy to gj
from Ottawa to South Afiica. The
provinces have been moulded into one
confederation. Thci Dominion of Canada has arrived at a stage of development that even the most sanguine Canadian of Uiofo days hardly
dreamed of, and there is every likelihood that the progress of the coming years will Lo even greater.
"It has bej-n my pleasant di.ty and
privilege to have taken part during
the past quarter of a cer.tury in
solving m iny public financial problems, and looking back over the
period 1 feel it can lie snid that, as
a whole, the dcpaitinent his not
been unsuccessful in its undertakings.
The      ui,      'm i:\  atigMin.
"As the business of the country
increased the woik of the department
increased in like proportion, Some
idea of this evolution may le inferred from the statement that on my
entry upon the duties of the oiTiec of
Deputy Minister the amount of Dominion notes in circulation of all
kinds, large and small, wis less thnn
the circulation to-day of the notes
of small denominations only (SI and
$2.) The total amount of Dominion
notes in circulal n has increased
threefold. The deposits in the savings banks, both Government and
post oflice, have in'reused se enfold.
Owing to the development cf tho
ban ing fa" lities throughout the
country, in ousequence of the opening of the blanches of the various
chartered ban s, the num er of deposit entries for revenue received has
very largely increased. The total absolute turnover in cash of the daily
transactions of tbe department ha.
advanced from $85,086,954 on Juno
-0, 1879, to $228,091,827.04
on June 30,1902. All the work on-
tai'ed by this expansion has been
met without the slightest increase in
the cost  of the department.
"With advancing age, that necessarily prevents me taking up new
financial problems, my olVcinl career
must soon close. The department
requires as its deputy head a younger and more active man, thoroughly
well versed in thc variad features of
modern linance, who shall be able t*-
give to the head of the department
that advice and assistance which thc
intricate and important flnnutinl
questions of the day demand.

A Leaion in Her  Life ior Ciiuailians Who
Muy lit Hume,
If Madame Albani Cye was a groat
singer, she is sill a great, mi siu.ii,
devoted to the uplifting and aggrandizement of her art. So true i_
the inspiration of her artistic feeling
that she does not hesitate to bring
in her train voices which are fi eh
and full, clear and true, wil hunt one
thought that tl ey may furnish a
contrast to her own—a contrast
which would be avoided by a wot*.an
of less great fibre than the prima
donna, whose modest demeanor bus
endeared her to thousands of thoso
struggling in tho musical profession.
Theio is much concerning the life
of Albani which has never bom published, and vvill never bo published,
which would prove of grout interest
to Canadians. Possibly no artist
bas ever oLtuinecl such a world-wide
reputation as Albani for cjlluliL 03
which have made her the pride of tho
lace from which she sprung. The fact
that sho took the name of Albany,
irom ..hi-h city in tho United States
she received her lirst sot'lous nil in
her stibsoqiu.il career, popits to tho
fact that gratitude is one of hor
mnny virtues. This ought to be a
lesson to Canadians to ko.p a lookout, for all possible moans of helping
their native-born artists In the future, says Thc Toronto News. But
the ono most charming aspect of Allan is character i.s the retention of
thnt modesty of demeanor which ie
conventual trailing hud so thoroughly instilled. One cannot be in i-.er
presence for any time wilhout recog-
I'.i'ing that, great, us is the arti.-t,
the strength of hor honest WomaHj
attributes is greater. She has earned
unsullied, through all the difficulties
of a long musical career and through
all the omotionnl pitfal'a which sir-
round the artist in grand opera, the
reputation of Unit excellent type of
French-Canadian woman who is uptight in every action of her private
und public lifo, without a taint of
prudery or purltanisin, who has nil
the tnct nnd finesse necessary to
moke her a welcome guest in social
gatherings in every part of the
world, and who yet carries under her
C'oak of spontaniot.y nnd gui ity the
