Voui'8—Uel-tiHiiH Iibmv Finely.
In the annual report, on the public
accounts of LanuUa for 1./U2, tlio
Lioputy Minister, IMr. J. M. Courtney, offers the following remarks:
"I lind that this is the twenty-fifth
annual report I have had the honor
to present as .Deputy Minister of Finance. At the time of the publication of iny first icport, tlie facilities
for keeping in touch with the different purts of the Dominion were very
different from what they are to-day.
At that time it was a matter of as
much difficulty to go from the eastern part of the nonunion to tha
western part as it is to-day to go
Iiom Ottawa to .South Afiica. The
province- have I.e.-:. iuoulded into one
confederation, 'lhe Dominion of Canada has arrived at a stage of de-
velopinent that even the most sanguine Canadian of thotc d.:.\s hardly
dreamed of, and there is every likelihood that the progress of the coining years Will l.e even gio.ter.
"It has bc.n my pleasant duty and
privilege to have taken part during
thc- past quarter of a coi tury in
.solving many public financial problems, and looking hack over the
pcrjod 1 foci it can he said that, as
a. whole, tlie department h.s not
been unsuccessful in ns undertakings.
The cmmoi'a fc-xnansjoii.
"As the business cf the count"y
increased tlie woik of the department
increased in tike proportion. Some
idea of this evolution .may te inferred from the statement that on my
entry upon the dut.es of the orlice of
Deputy Minister the amount of Dominion notes in circulation of all
kinds, large and small, wr. iers than
the circulation to-day oi tie holes
of siua.l denominations only (Si and
•52.) The toW amount of Dominion
notes in circulation hs.s increased
threefold, lhe deposits in the savings bi.nks, both Gove, nment and
postoffice, have increased se. enfold.
Owing to tho development of tho
ban ing fa- lities throughout the
country, in consequence of tho opening of the blanches of the various
chartered banks, the numi er of deposit entries f.ir revenue received has
very largely increased. The total absolute turnover in cash of the daily
transact ions of the department has
sulvaic.d from .$'-.o,0a..,,.)-;.l on June
30, 1S7_), to S2__..,0.!1,S__7.04:
on June 30,1902. All the work en-
tai'ed by tlis expansion has been
met wiihout tiie slightest increase ia
the cont of the department.
"With advancing age, that necessarily pre-ientf. me taking up new
financial prol 1 *ms, my olTcial career
must soon close. The department
requires as its deputy head a younger and more active man, thorouchiy
well versed in the varied features of
modern finance, who shall be able to
"ive to the head of the department
thafndvice and assistance which the
in'ri'-ate and important financial
questions of tlie day demand.

When 7.rr. Ti-raeli made his en-
trnn e into public life, ho contested
High Wyonibe, and then, as ever,
hi.s ready wit helped him to success.
His opponent, says Household
Words, was a countryman of infiu-
cn e. In nn address to the people
this gent'eman asset ted that he was
"standing for the seat upon the constitution of the country, upon the
broad acres of his fathers, upon law,
property and order."
"What does Mr. Disraeli stand
upon?" demanded one of the county
magnate's adherents, with somewhat
of a sneer.
Disraeli instantly rose. "I stand
upon my head." he answered, with
a meaning glance at the portly person of his opponent. He proceeded

No doubt many among the

Large numbers had assembled on the sloping grounds
of North Vancouver, to witness the regatta under the

A wild horse called Man-eater,
which until recently roamed the
hills ot the Far Eastern Lillooet,
has been captured for the Fair
at Westminster. He had a very
couver, in which '$ contest- bad reputation, indeed, among
ants entered, J. N. J. Brown
of Lillooet, W. Hogg of Winnipeg, and D. banister of
dhclon, England. As the
airs men formed into line,
evlvy indication showed for
a desperate race : and as the
word go was given, Banister
jumped to the front but only
for a short distance, when
the l.illooetian began to push
to the front with long sweeps.
At the quarter he was several lengths to the good, and
turned the buoy first,' Banister second and Hogg third,
'llie Lillooel mau eased off, and
allowed his opponents to pull up
and even then came to the front
an easy winner by some 200 yds.
He was loudly cheered a.s lie passed the flng, which he acknowledged by a wave of the hand.
Brown was born although not
raised iu Lillooet and ab.au early
age acquired the art of rowing,

of the Blue Kiver region, where
he was considered more dangerous than a, grizzly. According
to information gathered by a
World reporter, this remarkable
horse disappeared for six years
after being branded, and when
seen again was so magnificent
an animal that the Indians tried
to capture him. A party of 15
rounded hull up, but he jumped
off a precipice into the North
Thompson and escaped. Three
times he was lassoed, without
success. Finally, Moustache ..loe

AN EARLY BEGINNING.
JOE MARTIN OUTLINES TIIK
NORTHERN   PLANS OF
THE V. W. & Y.
A petition has been presented
to the Railway Commission by
owners of hind along tlie north
shore of Burrard Inlet, asking
that a limitation be placed on
the time given to the V. VV. & Y.
to expropriate land along the
line as located, as this time was
recently extended to 5 years and
all industry along the waterfront
would be affected in the meantime.
The commissioners thought it
would be out of their jurisdiction
as the plans had been approved
and the time extended. It was
up to the petitioners to apply to
parliament for redress.
Mr. McPhillips for the petitioners, saitl there was some doubt
as to the road being ever built,
as.it was a difficult piece to construct, and it was unfair to tie
aj) advancement of industries for
a. long term and then lind thai
the plans were abandoned.
Mr. Jos. Martin responded that
it is the intention of the V. VV. &
Y. to construct the road nortli
to a, point where il would intersect the G.T. P. The route is
difficult, but the company has
already spent large sums in the
(surveys. It is necessary to provide .an, outlet from the city in
order to protect these expenditures. The building of the northern portion of the road might
be delayed by reason of doubt as
to the exact location of the G. T.
P. but it was probable that the
road,  to a. reasonable distance

Canadian   Account   lil   the  Win as   Mnde
in 1851.
An interesting- Recount of how the
Americas Lup was won in 1851 is
published by a Canadian contemporary: When the yacht America, it
suys, arrived in l.ngland in 1850-51
hor owner, Stevens, published a challenge to sail anything for £1,000 i.r.
£10,000, but he laid down so 'many
stipulations that the challenge was
not accepted. Then the Americans
appeared to think they were being
treated discourteously, and the Royal Yacht Squadron went out of its
way to offer a cup, value £100, to
be sailed for—open to all—without
conditions or tune allowance; course,
round the Isle of Wight. Now this
is the cup that the Americans ani
pleased to call the Queen's Cup for
some reason only known to themselves. Possibly the hall mark on
silver in Lngland being a crown, the
Yankees assumed that this must be
Her Majesty's private totem. In
1851 five Queen's cups were given,
not one bearing the slightest resemblance to the Koyal Yacht Squadron
Cup. Aug. 22 was tho eventful day.
Fifteen yachts started, ranging from
the barque Brilliant, 393 tons, to
the cutter Aurora, 47 tons. Only
live could be termed racers or ever
won a prize. Iho five wero tho
Freak, Volante, Arrow, Alarm and
Aurora. The start was very peculiar The fleet went one way—the
America another. "Round the Isle
of Wight," in yacht racing parlance,
means round the Nab—and then
right away. Round the Nab went
the Britishers, but the Yankee, to
the amusement of thc spectators and
the disgust of the officials, took no
notice of the distant lightship, but
headed straight for the corner of the
island, scraped over Bcmbridge Ledge
and then took a short line to Culver Cliff, thereby effecting a saving
of from 11 to 13 miles. Off Bon-
church the Britishers caught up and
the Freak and Volante got to windward of the America. Then a scries
of disasters occurred. The Arrow
grounded off Ventnor, and the Alarm
wont to her assistance; off St. Lawrence the Freak fouled the Volante.
Thus four of the five British racers
were out of it. Passing the Needles
the America was a long way ahead,
but coming up the Solent thc littlo
Aurora gained rapidly and reached
Cowes eight minutes behind the America. The Aurora sailed the course,
tho America had not, and the Britishers claimed the cup, but as tho
Squadron people had omitted to tell
the Yankees that they must round
the Nab, they saw no other way out
of tho difficulty but. to hand the cup
to tho first yacht in.
Russia Not Conquered.
In 1870 one clause of the Treaty
of i'aiis was abrogated; in 1902 another. On both occasions Russia haa
been accused of faithlessness. If she
could be frank with her accusers she
would say that an individual or a
nation is not morally bound by any
promise which may be extorted by
armed forces.
