The Man From Misty River
BV   MARY  LANGTON.
(Written Specially for The Week.)
It was Christmas Eve and a woman
sat alone in her cosy drawing-room before a crackling wood fire,
rain fell ceaselessly and the wind was
high. In spite of the inclement weather the principal thoroughfares of New
York were thronged with late Christmas shoppers, and ever and anon came
the sound of auto horns through the
thick mist. "Truly a night to be comfortably housed," thought the woman,
putting aside her book and gazing contentedly about the room, where everything spoke of comfort, wealth and refinement.
In one corner stood a Grand piano,
and nearby a rack laden with classic
compositions and the latent operas. The
walls were hung with water colour
sketches of favourite artists, and the
hangings and upholsterings were of the

perfection do not constitute perfect womanhood, and lacking the necessary attributes, love, sympathy and pity, this
woman seemed like a beautiful thing,

"When you return to your cabin," she
said, scarcely audibly, "you must not
forget me."
"Look up, sweetheart," he whispered.
She lifted her head and looked squarely
into his face. Her eyes were moist, but
luminous, with a fire that was strange
and wonderful to the man, and revealed
inconceivable depths of love and sympathy in her soul.
"Do we go back together? Isn't that
the way of it, dear heart?" he whispered.
And thus the moment had come, the
supreme moment of the surrendering of
the heart and soul of the woman into
the keeping of the man. Her surrender
was complete, full, all yielding and all
giving.
But it was not until some time afterwards, when he had told her of his
irreat wealth, and that he owned most
of thc fishing ports along the coast, that
she realized the full power of love over
self in her heart, and what she would
gladly have sacrificed for the "Man

He is a business vandal, ocntinually

Over the desolate mountains, out from
the stormy sea,
A message tonight is ringing, ringing
for you and for mc.
Pealing aloud from each belfry, in Minster or humble spire,
Flashing to all a message of love on
memory's wordless wire.
Fling aloft to the heavens the glad triumphal strain,
Till hearts long sundered beat as one in
unison again.
Hearts that grown old, again made
young, with thoughts of bygone
days,
Hearts that were dead, through stress of
pain, revived by children's ways.
Hearts that were lonely, broken, sad,
or even those grown cold,
Once more may feel the mother's arms,
as in happy days of old.

And the faintest whisper may reach us,
if we listen with bated breath,
From those who have gone before us,

Telling of Life Eternal, where every
tear is dry;
Breathing of Peace, Good Will toward

Hark! or is it a fancy, is it?   It must

Listen! I hear them calling, a message

The Knocker.
"The Knocker" is the offspring of
Failure and Envy. He is an only child,
and like most only children, generally
spoiled. He never reaches real maturity. Success in others hurts him like
a tight shoe.
When he grows up he goes into the
laundry business, and wherever he goes,
he carries with him a lot of soiled linen
and a clothes line. Having no property
of his own, and being too poor to rent,
he becomes a "poacher," makes his
headquarters in the offices of other
people. There he sets up his tub,,
stretches his line and remains until you
interrupt him with the polite invitation
to come again sometime when you arc
not so busy.
The "knocker" always gets business
for the firm that doesn't pay his salary.
As soon as his own firm finds that
out he is retired without notice or pay.
Nobody  wauls his company.    His em-

Sing Edward—Diplomat.
When the youthful Queen Victoria
first took her place as head of the
Spanish Court she was somewhat annoyed, says "M.A.P.," at the conventions with which she found herself surrounded.
Many of her English friends Wei's
without the strain of royal blood which
is deemed necessary by Spanish etiquette before they can be received as
the Queen's guests. The bewildered
Queen wrote to King Edward, her
uncle, for advice.    His reply    justified
his great reputation as a diplomat. "Be
a sensible girl," he wrote. "Do not
make enemies; respect people's stupidities—when necessary. In time—if you
are wise—you will have everything your
own way"

rich art goods are within the reach of all.

Drawing the Long Bow.
Some years ago, while visiting the
Spokanes, General Philip Sheridan related to the Indians, through an interpreter, the wonders of the railroad, and
then wailed to see what effect the revelation would have upon them.
"What do they say?" he asked the interpreter.
"They say they don't believe it," was
the answer.
Sheridan then described the steamboat, and the interpreter repeated this.
"What do they say to that?" the General again asked, seeing thc Indians'
faces all impassive.
"They say lhey don't believe that,
either."
Then the General gave an account of
the telephone, and told how a man at
lhe end of a long wire had talked lo
lhe man at the other end of it. The interpreter  remained silent.
"Well," said lhe General, "why don't
you interpret that story to them?"
"Because 1 don't believe that story
myself."    answered    the    conscientious
The PittsburgEpidemic.
This Pittsburg epidemic of domestic
utihappiness, scandal and cr me is nature's retributive process, continues the
same writer. It is what happens when
a beggar is put on horseback. A man
may know how to make steel rails or
to puddle iron without being fitted lo
spend $100,000 a year decently. Such a
man as President Corey of the Steel
Trust was probably lvippier when he
was working i:i the Homestead mills
and lived in a frame cottage renting for
$15 ti month. He was more in his own
sphere than when he gave a champagne
supper at Delmonico's in celebration of
his  wife's divorcing him.
Men must either be educated by early
environment in the handling of wealth,
or they must have become rich gradually, or their heads must have the cx-
eee'ing hardness of a Carnegie, if they
are not to be made wild by wealth.
Spending money is a harder art to learn
than earning money.
If these Pittsburg millionaires had
known established society in ils different grades they might not be making such fools of themselves now, when
the distribution of the speculative results of Mr. Morgan's great steel promotion, makes them the prey of their
own weaknesses suddenly unlooscnd.
The Eternal Feminine.
"Thai was a lender-hearted young
lady who stopped and spoke to me after
the services to-day," observed the rector. "She seemed to be filled with sympathy for the farmers, for she asked
mc to pray for rain." 'Who? That
Vibbers girl ?'' asks the rector's wife.
"If she isn't the hypocrite! Why, I
saw her buying fancy silk hosiery at a
bargain sale yesterday. And she wants
you to pray for rain!"

By THB LOUNGER p
By nature I am an optimist of the
most optimistic type; 1 should deem it
an insult if I were at any time considered a pessimist. I do not allow things
to worry me, and I always find contentment, when such everyday nuisances as ''little bills" accumulate (how
1 hate that term, for after all, it is the
little hill which is the real nuisance; a
big bill brings with it a certain degree
of pleasure, and its items mount up so
enormously that there is never any lime
wasted in wondering how il is to be
met), in the reflection that it will bc
till the same in a hundred years. There
is much satisfaction in the thought that
lhe only crime for which one can be
hanged is murder, that long terms of
imprisonment are only given for serious
offences, and that debt, provided that
there are no such horrid details as false
pretenses brought in, is not considered
a serious offence. Therefore, why worry? I remember hearing of a preacher
who was graduating in lhe one-sentence
sermon (excellent institution), and on
reaching the pulpit he merely remarked,
"Don't worry; it's wicked." That man
was a philosopher of the must cheering
school; a literal descendant of Epicurus,
and it has always been my regret that 1
did not attend his church that Sunday.
But though an optimist, I confess ihat
I always feel a little miserable about
Christmas time, a misery brought on, I
fancy, by the knowledge ihat it is the
proper thing to he cheerful, and lo go
about thc streets with a grin like a
Cheshire Cat's upon one's lips. Nothing which we do from conventional motives is really a satisfaction to us, except thai it gives us the noble feeling
of martyrdom, which, though inspiring
ill one sense, is certainly very boring on
the whole, and say what you will,
Christmas is the time for hills and all
kinds of extra expenses, which do not
tend to brighten the horizon of one's
outlook. I am inclined lo think, too,
that the whole business is rather a farce.
II was all very well when children really believed that there was such a person as Santa Clause; when every gift
was really a surprise, when the Christmas tree really hurst like a vision of
fairyland on their delighted vision. But
ihose days are gone-. There are Bo
children now. There are plenty of little men and little women, whom age
and size alone, and not ignorance of
lhe world, prevent from being called
grown-ups. They no longer imagine
thai they were sent down irom heaven
lo earth in a hamper, nor do they believe that father is the gi-atest man
who ever lived, and in many instances
they have very strong idea-; that mother
is not invariably correct in her judgments. Christinas is, or was, essentially
tlie children's feast; now that children
are grown-up by the time they are lit to
enjoy Christmas, but arc too old for ils
real appreciation, why keep up the farce?
Turkey and plum pudding could still be
eaten, and a few presents given; all
we. should lose would hc the present
senseless hurry and scurry of gelling
everything ready by a certain day.
Think of lhe saving to postal officials.
It is said that Charles Dickens, more
than any other man, was responsible for
what is generally termed "thc Christmas
feeling," a feeling based entirely on sentiment It was easier to bc brisk and
happy in the "good old times." when
Christmas meant snow and ice Nowadays it is another name for wet, slushy
weather. Even a novelist of Dickens'
calibre could hardly have painted a
pathetic picture of little Tim, if Scrooge
had been passing through a deluge of
rain, instead of a crisp, frosty night air.
Bui if ihcre is one thing about Christ-
mast which I do abominate il is the
habit of sending Christmas cards. Like
picture post-cards, they were contrived
to'do away with the necessity of writing letters to acquaintances to whom one
did not care lo send letters; unlike iiieture post-cards, however, lhey have not
served thc useful purpose of giving the
recipient pictures of interesting places.
How many people care two cents what
words   are'  on   thc  cards   which   they
send, or which they receive? 1 am not
a heathen, but, as is well known, Christmas celebrations are lhe outcome of a
heathen feast, the Lupercalia, whicli was
the most licentious of Roman orgies,
and which the early Christians found
advisable to adopt for their own Christian rites. At the present day it is
again looked upon more as an excuse
for extra eating and drinking, than as
a season for religious meditation. Theie
is one blessing about it, however; it
only comes once a year.
I   came across   rather  a  good  little
story the other day, which goes to show
that it  is  not reserved for the Upper
Ten   alone to   play   bridge;  policemen
also enjoy this fascinating game, and I
am inclined  to think that  the  way  in
which  they play it  is  more enjoyable
than  if  played  according  to the rules
laid   down  by the   highest  authorities
One worthy preserver of the peace meet
ing   another,   asked  him  how   he  hac
spent   thc  previous   evening.    'Well,'
said Robert No. 2 I had a fine game of
Bridget    whist."     "Now,    what    may
Bridget   whist be?"   queried  the   first
speaker.   "I have heard of bridge, that's
what the swells play.   Is that what you
mean?"     No.  2  looked sheepish,   an
then said, "Well, you see, it's this way
there's   a  cook on   my   beat what's
Irishwoman, aud I. drops in at times for
a  bit of pie, and to pass thc time of
day, you know, and when she hears vh
missus  coming,   Bridget,   she  tips   an
says,   'Whisht,  John,'  and   1  goes hit
the coal  cellar.    So   1   calls  it Bridget
whist."
Talking about games, I sometime:
wonder if the world would not he thi
honester if all card games, and olhe:
drawing-room games of skill were play
ed for small slakes. There arc so many
drawing-room players who think it the
highest form of amusement to indulge
in a little mild cheating, "because, my
dear, il is not as though wc were play
ing for anything, so it. really doesn'
matter." That's just it. The worst of
fenders ill this respect are undoubtedly
women, who would be the last, as
rule, to dream of cheating if there were
any monetary advantage to be gamed
I did once come across a lady who objected to a small slake, because- then
one couldn't cheat. Why it should add
amusement to any game to play it unfairly is a puzzle beyond mc, bill if anyone doubts the truth of what 1 say let
him to go to some drawing-room function, held for pre ference in the house
of a church dignitary, with a mom full
of church workers,, and just watch how
the ladies play. A small slake would
serve to do away with this nonsense;
however small il might be.
[And to think that The l.ou'i;.*cr

for thc Christmas number! If he cniijj

Blind Faith.
A clergyman happened to tell his son
one Saturday afternoon what lesson he
would read in church thc next morning.
The boy got hold of his father's Bible,
found the lesson's place, and glued together the connecting pages.
Tn consequence the clergyman read to
his Hock thc following day that "when
Noah was uo years old hc look unto
himself a wife, who was"—here hie
turned the page—"140 cubits long. 40
cubits wide, built of gopher wood, and
covered with pitch in and out."
Afier reading the passage, thc clergyman read it again to verify it. 'I hen,
pushing back his spectacles, he looked
gravely at thc congregation and said:
"My friends, this is the first time I
ever read that in the Bible but T accept it as evidence of the assertion that
wc are fearfully and wonderfully
made."
Time Enough.
The minister was shocked when thc
young lady declined an introduction lo
sonic of his parishioners. "Why. my
dear young lady, did you ever think
that perhaps you will have to mingle
wilh these good people when you get lo
heaven?" "Well," sh'c exclaimed, "that
will bc soon enough."

BADINAGE
By BOHEMIAN
i******^****************!
A reputedly wise man once said, "Oh,
that mine enemy would write a book."
This wish has ben reiterated in various
forms for many generations past.
Would-be litigants have prayed, "Oh,
that mine enemy would write a letter;"
others, "Oh, that mine enemy would
keep a diary." 1 neither write letters
nor keep diaries, but for more years
than 1 am going lo admit, 1 have kept
a scrap-book, and at sundry times, when
hard-driven by the insatiable task-master who presides over the destinies of
The Week, I have dipped into its pages,
in order to refresh my memory with
respect to events in which 1 either played a part, or of which 1 was a witness.
I have come to thc conclusion that however reprehensible or inconvient the
other habits may be, that of keeping a
scrap-book lias everything in its favour
and nothing against it. The record it
contains is impersonal, having been culled from divers sources, lt is sure to
be comprehensive, because one's cuttings
will bc on every conceivable subject
which possesses interest for the reader.
Only newspaper ollicers and public libraries keep files, but a scrap-book into
which a man turns an average of three
or four cuttings a day soon becomes
a compendium of general information,
as well as of literary excellence. It
mirrors passing events, and yields to the
delver of later years a rich harvest,
which it would lake days, or even
weeks, to disinter from the shelves of
a library. Opening mine at haphazard,
I find that in 1870 the Franco-German
war was raging, and in 1871 the victorious German army marched through the
streets of Paris. I had been there the
year before the war, and never was
Paris so gay and light-hearted. The
last thing that entered the minds of men
at that time was the possibility of war.
The Empress, whose masterfulness precipitated that Titanic and cataclysmic
struggle, still survives. I saw her in
the palace grounds of the Tuilerics six
months before the war broke out, the
very personification of imperial majesty
and pride. I saw her again at Chisle-
hurst only a few years later, when the
ill-fated Emperor was laid in his mausoleum. She looked twenty years older,
and grief had placed its permanent mark
upon her features. I saw her again
when the remains of the Prince Imperial were brought home, and once more
only a few years ago a shrunken, feeble, decrepit figure, than whom no one
looked less like an Empress.
I question if the history of the world
reveals a single instance to which one
could more appropriately apply the
aphorism ''sic transit gloria mundi."
In find, in April, 1876, a report of Mr.
Disraeli's speech, to which I had the
pleasure of listening, on the occasion of
his submitting a bill to the House, creating Queen Victoria Empress of India.
Even at this distance there will be many
who remember the hostility which this
measure provoked. One celebrated
Commoner, making a criticism which
will be remembered whenever the indent is recalled, declared that to add
anything to the time-honoured title,
' Queen of England," was like gilding
refined gold and painting the lily. Nevertheless, the policy of the greatest foreign minister England has ever had,
prevailed, and none of the untoward
results which were predicted have followed, in spite of the jeremiads of the
opposition press.
During 1876 I find a number of cuttings from a journal long since defunct,
which was entitled "The Englishman,"
and was owned and edited by Dr. Ken-
ealy. Dr. Kenealy was an extraordinary character, a brilliant barrister without ballast, who famed notoriety by his
• ssociation with ihe Tichborne claimant, and who went out in a blaze of
glory after a brief and meteoric career,
lie had several bees in his bonnet: one
was that every man was a Jesuit in disguise; taolthelr, that British freedom
was in reality the worst kind of slavery, and the third, and perhaps the most
remarkable of all, that the whole world
was up in arms to deny him justice and
effect his ruin. Miss Arabella Kenealy,
who has attained fame as a writer, is
a daughter of the eccentric doctor.
On December nth, 1875, Punch pub-
ished one of John Tenniel's historic
cartoons, represeutii.g Disraeli in holiday attire on the hanks of the Suez
Canal. In his hand he holds a key la-
helled "Suez Canal," thc key of India.
The Sphinx rears its unwieldy shape in
the background and by an artistic touch
is represented wilii on: side of the face
like adamant, and the olhcr side wearing a smile and a iviut for the knowing
one. How well, as isual, the cartoonist hit off popula- opii.1011 on that great
transaction, lhe ; uji'i}.i)ion of the Suez
Canal shares.
On March 16th, 1875, the first friendly arbitration which ever took place in
the industrial world culminated in an
award by Sir Rupert Kettle. The dispute was between the miners and coal
owners of Northumberland; the award
was received with perfect satisfaction
by both sides, and must be regarded as
historic, seeing that it initiated a movement which has since spread throughout
the industrial world, although even yet
it is not as prevalent as it should be.
On October 8th, 1873, Mr. Henry
Fowler presented his first report as
chairman of the Wolverhamption school
board, and laid 'he foundation of that
greal career wuiii led to his appointment as Secretay of State for India,
and other cabinet position i under the
Liberal governm™*
I turn over .1 few lumdiui pages in
order to get away from the '70s, and on
October 22nd, 1877, I light on another
of Tenniel's cartoons, representing Mr.
Chamberlain in lhe garb of an Irish
peasant, with a huge pair of wings, flying across the Irish channel to Erin, as
a "messenger of peace," waving in his
right hand a shillelagh and in his left
a plaid, with the inscription "Hey Down
Derry." This was when he undertook
the secretaryship of Ireland. About the
same time I find a cutting from the
New York Herald, which tells how a
deputation had been sent from New
York to England to invite the Rev.
Charles A. Berry to succeed Henry
Ward Beecher. The sequel may not be
generally known, but in spite of the
most tempting offers to occupy what
was undoubtedly the greatest pulpit in
the world, Mr. Berry had the wisdom
to decline. It should be remembered
that it was Mr. Beceher himself who
designated Mr. Berry as his successor.
After a brief but brilliant career, Mr.
Berry died at an early age through overwork and mental strain.
I must conclude this discurtesy and,
I trust, not altogether uninteresting
sketch, by referring to one of the most
important gatherings which it was ever
my good fortune to attend. On the 24th
of October, 1887, Lord Randolph
Churchill journeyed to Nwcastle-on-
Tyne to beard the lion in his den, or in
other words, to carry the war into the
enemy's stronghold. He was then lighting the great Unionist battle against
Mr. Gladstone's Home Rule measure, and
John Morley, who represented Newcastle, was the great statesman's chosen
lieutenant. Lord Randolph was then in
the zenith of his power; hc had attained the highest position in the public interest, and had fairly caught the
public eye. With the single exception
of Mr. Gladstone himself, no other
speaker at that moment had obtained
such a grip on his audiences, and he
had indeed reached a point where it
seemed as if the world lay at his feet.
(Jn the occasion to which I refer, he
was accompanied by Lady Randolph,
of whose matchless beauty and personal
magnetism it is impossible to say too
much. The meeting was held in the
theatre under the presidency of Sir
Matthew White Ridley, and he was supported by such prominent men as the
Earl of Ravensworth, the Earl of Zetland, the Earl of Durham, the Earl of
Scarborough, Viscount Curzon and Sir
George Elliot. The speech occupied
two hours in delivery, and was by far
the finest effort of Lord Randolph' career. At times he rose to the heights
of sublime eloquence, at others he
plumbed the depths of scatching invective. He moved the audience as a
breeze stirs the surface of a lake, and
his exordium will live alongside the
classic utterances of Pitt. The recent
work of his clever but erratic son, Mr.
Winston Churchill, has revived public
interest in everything associated with
the memory of Lord Randolph, but no
reference is made to this classic occasion, thc record of which could only be
found in the files of Joe Cowen's great
paper, "The Newcastle Chronicle," or
in the musty pages of some old scrap-
book like that which is deemed one of
the most priceless possessions of
BOHEMIAN.
The Star of Hope.
I launched my golden argosy
Upon the summer sea,
And fondly hoped its precious freight
Would come again to me.
With fluttering heart, and pallid brow,
I watched it swiftly sail
Beyond the verge of distant isle,
And surging of the tale.
Proudly it spurned th? siren call,
As strand and harbour passed,
With pennon ever floating free,
Upon its quivering mast.
Until when summer sun was high,
All canopied in blue;
And golden dreams were beckoning,
And glorious promise, too.
I neared the __hai i:.g port of dawn,
Where light sin .id ever be;
And summer calm, ind summer peace,
Upon a summer ic ..
But the stately bark was shattered,
And my precious freight was lost.
On the pitiless wares of that summer
sea,
Its pitiful  wreckage tossed.
And long, while I sat on the desolate
shore,
And waited, and sighed, and wept,
Like one who bemoaned a hapless fate,
Thc angel of sorrow slept.
Then high in the heaven's coronal
The star of hope shone forth,
And again my golden argosy
Was fleeting to the North.
And it bore a treasure so costly,
The Queen on her throne afar,
Cried out for my "heart of hearts,"
In the light of that shimmering star.

Pear Madge:
We hear a good deal less nowadays
than formerly of the nuisance of Christmas-tide. Ten years ago or so a dead
set was made against the season in many
quarters, and people who did not grumble at the festivities of the end of the
r*ear were considered hopelessly old-
fashioned.
The feeling was a reaction against the
exaggerated celebrations of the "festive
eason" for which Dickens' 'Christmas
ilarol" and its feeble imitators were re-
iponsible; but the swing of the pendu-
um is now going the other way, and
he cult of Christmas is once more be-
ng revived. Indeed, some folk have
[one so far as to ask why there are no
jhost stories at Christmas time novva-
iays, and why there is so little holly
ind mistletoe in the colored plates of
hese Christmas numbers which appeal
more especially to children. But there
is one aspect of the secular celebrations
of Christmas which has passed away for
good and all, or at least for a good
many generations, and that is the eating
of Gargantuan feasts on the 25th of
•December and on the following days.
[The amount that our ancestors ate and
[drank between Christmas Day and
[Twelfth Night was something appalling
[to pur notions, for these worthy people
[disposed of more in a week than we
"ould digest in a month. According to
lthe novel-writers of those days, they ate
[roast beef and turkey and drank beer,
[port wine and brandy all day long, with
[brief intervals in the keen, frosty air
[co acquire another appetite.
However ,there is one aspect of
[Christmas time that remains with us
bud is steadily growing in favour, and
[that is present-giving. One has only to
look at the store windows or at the illustrated advertisements, which are very
■attractive, lo see that never were so
Ihany presents given, and that never
tvere gifts so attractive, so useful or so
'suited to all purses as they are in the
present year of grace. There are gifts
for the old and for the young, for men
lind for women, and above all, for the
children, and all of thein so characterized by ingenuity, suitability and good
taste. The great need is to find something that will please the recipient, and
this, which used to be so difficult, is
[low made easy and robbed of all its
former terrors. The cry used to be,
['What shall I give?" T )day it is
['What shall I choose?" For there is
I'uch a wealth of display in the stores
Ihat the difficulty is not to find something fitting, but to refrain from buying
1.11 the pretty things that tempt one to
Invest.
Did not Emerson declare that to re-
|oice in a gift was degradation?   If so,

We women are agreed that music is

'anescent form of sustenance remained
liviare to many men  and  incidentally

you seen the splendid display of talking

make a beautiful gift for any one, so
much pleasure can be derived from
them, and they are a source of great

was an unqualified success from every
point of view. The results are more
than satisfactory, and the way those
taking part worked for their cause is
little short of marvelous. The different
booths were perfect in every detail, and
lhe pretty fanscy costumes worn by the

beauty of the* scene. The wax works
were excellent, the different members
taking part exerting themselves to be
most amusing. Comparisons are odious, but perhaps the three deserving the
greatest praise were Miss Newling, Miss

although the other characters were well
sustained. The different costumes worn
by the ladies in the booths were very
pretty, thc Greenaway Girls being most
fetching; also the fishwives. Those appearing in Irish peasant costume looked
well, as did also the ladies in paper
dresses, while a peasant costume in violet, black and gold was greatly admired. Little St. Elmo Russell, dressed
as a daffodil, in green and yellow, was
very pretty and found a ready market
for his dainty boutoimieres. The public turned out in large numbers, both in
the afternoon and evening, and patronized the different booths in a very generous manner. Altogether the ladies arc
to be congratulated on the great success
of their fair.

NOTES ON PROVINCIAL NEWS
Prosecution Failed.
The trial of Mr. Eckstein of the law
firm of Eckstein & Gray of Fernie, on
the charge of conspiring lo defeat the
ends of justice lias resulted in a victory
for the lawyer, lt seems a pity that
the prosecution should ever have been
entered on in view of the fact that the
Crown had to rely upon the evidence of
the tin-horn gambler and his paramour.
The case altogether was of an unsavoury character, and while lhe immediate
object of thc prosecution has failed, it
will serve as a salutary warning to persons inclined to connive at the spiriting
away of witnesses.
* *   *
Signs of the Times.
Victoria and Vancouver rejoice in the
possession of aroller-skating rink, and
it is reported ihat New Westminster
will follow suit. The recreation is
healthful and sociable, and has received
the imprimatcur of fashionable society.
At the moment it threatents to oust
skating 011 ice, for in Montreal several
ice rinks are being converted for roller-
skating. Thirty years ago a similar
craze was started, and it ran itself out
in about two years. Whether the present one will last longer remains to be
seen.   At present, however, it is all the
rage.
* *   *
Activity in Coal.
The present year has seen a remarkable development in the coal properties
of Eastern British Columbia, and Western Alberta. Amongst the most notable
is the opening up of the Hill Crest
Mine near Frank, the purchase of the
property of the Alberta Coal Company
and of lhe Lltndbreck Coal mine, and
their amalgamation with the interests
represented by Mr. A. C. Flummerfelt.
More recently, thc immense holdings of
the Elk River Coal Company on Fording River, eighty miles north of Fernie,
have been sold to an Eastern syndicate
through the agency of Mr. W. R. Ross,
M P, The Imperial Coal Company,
whose areas also lie on the Norih Elk,
have done a good season's work under
the superintendence of Mr. W. R. Wilson, at one time general manager of
thc Crow's Xest Coal Company. Last,
but by no mean- least, the C. P. R.,
under the energetic management of Mr.
J. Brown, one of lhe most practical men
in tiie West, are rapidly developing
their properties at Hosmer. Further
afield, Frank li. Smith, at one lime mine
manager for the Crow's Xest Company,
and for the last live years Inspector of
Mines iu lhe Northwest Territories, has
resigned his position to undertake the
opening up of coal mines at Edmonton.
Perhaps the most extensive development
of all is at the Bankhead mine of the
C. P. R., where Mr. Louis Stockett,
who was for twenty years a mine manager under J. J. Hill in Montana and
Washington, is rapidly establishing one
of the largest and most up-to-tlatc mining districts in the West. Most of thes?
properties arc still i lhe earliest stages
of development, yet in 1906 they will
produce 2.000.000 tons of coal. Within
three years, however, lhey will have a
combined capacity of 5,000,000 tons, by
which lime all fear of a coal famine in
Manitoba and the territories will be at
an end. Eight' years ago in all this vast
territory there were only two shipping
mines, one at Lethbridge and another
at Canmore, with a total output of about
400,000 tons. Nothing would better illustrate lhe aim st fabulous growth of
the West than those figures.
A Sound Judgment.
The Prospec'i.i- is not much given to
fireworks, but r ^ papers in the Province are more o- '.lent, or more sound
in their judgments. The folowing is
both pertinent and pointed:
"The most talked of man in British
Columbia is the premier, the Hon. Richard McBride. A war of slander and
misrepresentation has been against him.
All the opposition guns, both big and
small, were trained against him. But
now these opposition gilt's are about silenced, the smoke has cleared up and
Premier McBride is still in possession
of all the points of vantage. Mr. McBride is a natural leader of men, and
British Columbia Ins never produced a
man who has displayed greater political
ability. Hc has won the confidence of
the people of this province by his masterly fight for better terms with the
Laurier government.

Ambitious Phoenix.
The Phoenix Pioneer has the following to say with reference to a candidate
for the riding:
"The Conservatives in this riding have
begun to g:i. ss who may bc the nominee
of lhe party jn t .e text election contest.
Our present member. G. A. Fraser, has
moved to Victoria, and docs not care
to run, but of course there are Olivers
willing to do so. 1( is time Phoenix
had a rpresentative, as turn about is
fair play."
To which Thc Week adds: "What
is the matter with George Rumberger?''
* *   *
The Hindu Question.
It seems that the Hindu question is
a live issue in Grand Forks, where upwards of eighty arc without occupation,
and dependent more or less upon charity. A public meeting was recently held,
at which prominent men spoke on the
subject. The Week is glad lo notice
that, although the immigration of Hindus was condemned on general principles, the meeting was entirely in favour
of humane action towards those who
found themselves in such unfortunate
circumstances. This is the right spirit
in which to approach the subject, and
presents a pleasant contrast to the attitude of certain Vancouver gentlemen.
* *   *
A Modern Junius.
The Cumberland News lias recc'nlly
published iwo open letters 011 llic subject of Provincial politics and allied
topics. For conciseness, lucidity and a
sane comprehension of the issues at
slake they have nol been surpassed by
the editorial utterances of any British
Columbia journal. Instead of wading
through columns of involved argument
the electors cannot do better than secure copies of The Cumberland News of
November 2ist and 28th, and read these
two letters.
* *   *
Great Possibilities.
Everyone who knows Mr. R. E. Gosnell will hope that his latest venture
may be successful. He is said to have
gone to England as a representative of
the B. C. Development Company, who
are financing a scheme for clearing and
settling 150,000 acres of the E. &• N.
land grant. If a thorough knowledge
of the Island constitutes the chief equipment for a successful ending of these
negotiations, Mr. Gosnell will carry
them through.

Conrad Closed Down.
A telegram received Saturday evening by Col. J. H. Conrad from William
McKenzie at Toronto instructed that
all operations in the mines of thc company be suspended for the time being.
The order was complied with, work on
all the company's properties being discontinued on Monday.
While it is not known just why the
mines were closed down, it is believed
that it is for the purpose of arranging
for thc treatment of all lhe output of
llic mines- of the company and thus do
away with the necessity of shipping ore
to the outside, ll is believed that concentrators will be installed and thai a
smelter will be elected lhe coming summer.
In the meantime, the temporary closing down of operations at the mines will
have a tendency to make Conrad Cily
somewhat "New Englandified" lor the
time being.—White Horse Star.

Ashcroft Potatoes the Best.
The Week, one of the brighesl papers
published in the Province, has the following to say of an article published in
thc Journal, extolling the merits of Ash-
croft potatoes:
"The Ashcroft Journal tells a simple
truth, which is admitted by all who
have enjoyed the privilege of eating
Ashcroft potatoes. Since the reputation
of this tuber has become so firmly established it is greatly to he regretted
that it is nol cultivated to a greater extent in the district which has been so
signally successful in producing it.
This season potatoes generally arc unsatisfactory .the only exception being
the Ashcroft variety. It would be a
boon to Victorians, at any rate, if they
could gel something better than lhe
sloppy mush which is being sold this
fall under the title of potatoes."—Ashcroft Journal.
Making Good Progress.
Chas. A. MacKay, manager of the
Black-MacKay Mining Co., is again in

work 011 his claims, preparatory to sinking a big shaft. This shaft will bc 350

the ore bodies underlying Moyie lake.—

John Houston's Magnum Opus.
Whatever else John Houston may
have done for Nelson nothing can deprive him of the honour of having secured for the capital of the Kootenay
one of the best power plants in the
West, and with it municipal power,
light and heat. The result has only
been acquired after a persistent fight
wilh almost insurmountable obstacles,
and now that the end is in sight, ihere
are few wdio do not regret that the man
to whose intelligence and indomitable
persistence the scheme is due, is no
longer in a position to reap the honour
which it should have brought to him;
never was it truer that "One soweth
and another reapeth." The power plant
was to have been in operation in January last. Litigation and delay on the
pari of lhe machinery ocntrac'.ors has
delayed thc completion of the work until the present time, but judging from
the following paragraph from the Nelson Xews il really looks as if the city
will be reaping the benefit of John
Houston's statesmanlike policy by the
end of llic present year:
' There has been some complaints
made at the rale of progress made at
the work of installing the machinery at
the city power plant. The Allis-Chal-
mers-Bullbck company's local representatives assert that they are doing the
very best they can under existing circumstances, and both his worship the
mayor and the city engineer are inclined to agree with this statement. It
certainly will not pay thc company to
waste a moment more over the job than
is absolutely necessary, and the mayor
is of the opinion that good progress is
now being made. His worship is optimistic as to when lhe installation will
be completed, and is quoted as saying
that in about a fortnight's time all will
be in readiness.
"As a fact, the most tedious and dim-
cult work, that of placing the Water
wheel, casing and supply pipe in position, is about over, but if the wholie
plant is in working order by the end
of thc year, even the most impatient
ratepayer will be satisfied. 'Better a
little delay and have the work well and
thoroughly done so that '.here will be
no trouble afterwards, than a hurriedly
completed job that might prove unsatisfactory later,' was the expressed view
of an authority on the subject yesterday, and the public, now that thc end
of the matter is really in sighth, will
probably share in this opinion."
summed up than in the following paragraph taken from the Vernon News of
November 22nd:
"It looks as if the city council will
have to furnish relief and assistance to
thc Hindus who arrived here last week.
At present their condition is pitable in
the extreme. They stand in need of
nearly everything ihat goes to make
life bearable during the winter months
even in a mild climate such as ours.
They need, clothing, boots, blankets,
fuel and food. Their supplies of the
bare necessaries of life arc of the
slimest, and unless they get assistance
at ouce they will soon be upon the verge
of starvation. Mayor Muller is now
taking steps to furnish temporary relief and employment, and anything he
may do in this direction should meet
with the approbation of our citizens. We
did not invite them here; and we certainly do nol desire their presence;
but now that they are thrown upon our
hands we cannot allow them to suffer
or starve for the lack of assistance.
Private charity may also find a good
avenue for action in this direction, and
anyone having cast-off clothing or other
supplies at their disposal would be do- (
ing a kindly act by sending such articles
to the house in Chinatown where these
unfortunates at present find shelter."
The More Excellent Way.
A section of the Vancouver press
might well take a lesson from the attitude adopted by the Vernon News towards the Hindu Immigrants, The
whole situation could hardly bc better
What the Strike Cost.
Nothing so pointedly emphasises the
economic disaster occasioned by a long
strike as the large account which is
prepared when the strike is terminated,
and in the face of tlie recent Fernie
trouble lliis has been carefully appraised
in moulding public opinion against the
continuance of such a barbarious method
of settling differences. Compulsory
arbitration is llic only remedy which
will protect all interests, and when it
is realised that the third interest in all
labour disputes, that of the general public, is the greatest, legislation will be
demanded and granted, which will for
ever put an end to strikes.
it will cost the company the sum of
$50,000 lo place them in thc condition
they were before the strike. It is estimated thai the company has lost the
sum of $100,000 in profits and deterioration of plant during the strike. It will
cost in round figures the sum of $5,000
to start the coke ovens at Fernie and
Michel again, and it will mean, all conditions being equal, a period of ten
days before any can produce coke equal
to tlie output before lhe strike. The
men, besides losing the strike, have lost
$300,000 in wages alone. The Government of this country has lost $19,500
in royalties in coal and timber alone.
The loss to the business people of Fernie and the surrounding country is incalculable. During the struggle the
customers of the company have been
supplied with coal and coke from out-'
side points, principally in the United
States, but the company expects a renewal of orders as soon as it gets its
mines in condition to operate on the
same scale as heretofore, which should
not take more than a month or six
weeks. i'Hh Wnlik, o.-iulib.u, LtiiCfc,MB_iK 8 iyoo.

Conservative Rally.
Golden, B. C, Nov. 26th, 1906.
The Conservative Association of Golden held a most enthusiastic meeting
last night; the purpose of the meeting
was to elect officers and an executive
committee for the ensuing year.
Capt. Armstrong, who was elected
chairman, in a very happy speech, explained the object of the meeting. Mr.
J. W.'Devlin was chosen as secretary.
The chairman then called for an election of officers, which resulted as follows : Hon. president, H. E. Forster of
Firlands, B. C.; president, F. P. Armstrong of G 'den; first vice president,
J. G. Ullock 01 Golden; second vice
president, James G01 'd of Golden; third
vice president, J. W. Devlin of Golden;
secretary and treasurer, G. F. Stalker
of Golden.
After the election of officers the ex
ecutive committee was chosen, and was
made up of the most 'oyal Conservatives
of Golden.
The president, after the election of
officers and committee, gave an address,
in which he asked J! men who took an
interest in B. C. to get out and work
in the intereslers of the maker of the
Province, the Hon. Richard McBride,
whose name wac received with cheers.
The president also asked all Conservatives to put their shoulder to the wheel
and help along the good cause.
The meeting was also addressed by
G. F. Stalker, H. G. Parson, J. W. Devlin, J. G. Ullock, Jno. Pratt and others.
The meeting was well attended and
was most harmonious. Several motions
of thanks to the past scretary, Mr. J.
W. Devlin, were passed, and there is
no doubt that Columbia Riding will do
its duty at the next Provincial election
and elect a candidate who will be a
supporter of the present government,
which is really the best government
British Columbia has ever had.
NOTICE is hereby given that, 30
days after date, I intend to apply to the
Hon. Chief Commissi Tier of Lands and
Works for a special license to cut and
carry away timber from the following
described lands, in Alberni District:
Commencing at a post on the Alberni

British Columbia
THE FRUIT GROWING RESOURCES
OF THE PROVINCE. S     S53
Ffuit Growing.
British Columbia fruit is preferred
above all others in the markets of
the Middle West, where it commands
profitable prices. In 1904 a small
exhibit sent to England was awarded the gold medal of the Eoyal Horticultural Society, and last year
(1905) a car lot, exhibited in London, won the first prize from all competitors, while no less than eight
medals were awarded the individual
exhibits which made up the collection. This goes to prove that despite
the great distance British Oolumbia
fruit has secured a prominent place
in the British market, in which Oregon and California applies have heretofore sold at the highest prices.
The fruit industry of British Columbia is in its infancy, but the results so far secred are convincing as
to its future importance. The actual
extent of fruit growing land has not
yet been ascertained, but by a conservative estimate at least one million acres south of the 52nd degree
will produce all the fruits of the temperate zone. The recognized fruit
districts include the southern part
of Vancouver Island and the Gulf
Islands, Lower Fraser River Valley,
Thompson River Valley, Shuswap
Lake, Okanagan, Spallumcheen, Oso-
yoos, Similkameen, Upper Oolumbia
Valley, Kootenay Lake, Arrow Lake,
Lower Oolumbia River and Grand
Forks, which are all suited to the
best grades of fruit, and which contain extensive areas of fruit lands.
Other good fruit districts are: West
Coast of Vancouver Island, West
Coast of Mainland (where patches of
fruit lands are found at the heads of
the numerous inlets), Lower Fraser
Valley, Nicola, Grand Prairie, and
many other localities. In some of
these sections irrigation is necessary,
and, as mentioned elsewhere, water is
being supplied where the influx of
population warrants the necessary
expenditure. Many localities, which
are now proved to be suitable for
fruit culture, were but recently "discovered," for a few years ago fruit
was only raised in the settlements
along the coast and along the rivers,
and in quantity that failed to supply
even the limited local demand. In
1891 the total orchard area of the
province was 6,500 acres. In ten
years it only increased 1,000 acres,
but from 1901 to 1905 it jumped to
22,000 acres, and it is safe to say
that that acreage will be more than
doubled again before the close of
1906. Ten years ago British Columbia did not produce enough fruit to
supply her own population. The fol-
following table of fruit shipments is
interesting in showing the steady
growth of the industry:

GENTLEMEN LIVING in the

in obtaining the correct articles of
dress to which they are accustomed.
Eor instance, best English flannel

that comfortable fit which is so desirable; Welch, Margetson's fine flannel pyjamas and Turkish towelling
bath robes; the latest styles of English neckwear in Derby, Ascot, and
other fashionable ties; knitted vests,
not the departmental store style but
the vests which are worn by men of
discrimination and refined tastes;
Christy's stylish and most comfortable hats, and all those hundred and

difficulty can be immediately overcome by communicating with SEA &

if
The Drama. J
The Arion Club Concert last night
was successful  and  thoroughly enjoyable.   The members have been led by
a series of high class performances, to
expect the best only, and the quality
was well sustained.   The choruses were
all well rendered, and the work of the
orchestra was, if possible, better than
usual, but the bright particular star was
Miss   Eileen   Maguire.     Her   superb
fresh contralto voice thrilled the audience, and her style was a revelation.
No young singer of such promise has
been heard in Victoria for many years.
The range and quality of her voice are
quite out of the ordinary, whilst she
shows evident traces of the best training
and the most natural voice production.
Her most effective selection was "Che
Faro Senza Euridice," which was rapturously applauded, and encored.   Victorians will .hope to hear Miss Maguire
again during the present season.   Mr.
Benedict Bantly, the rising young violinist, acquitted himself with credit in
a series of difficult selections.   A word
of praise is due to Mr. A. G. Goward,
who kindly substituted at short notice
and sang the tenor music in Franz Abt's
"Ave Maria."
•   •   *
On Tuesday night Maxine Elliott and
company appeared at the Victoria Theatre in "Her Great Match."   The house
was packed, and it is currently reported
that numbers of seats were sold on the
outside at doubh rates.   The play is a
comedy of a so.ncwhat romantic type,
and with an at nos; here of those supposititious   mid-European principalities,
with which Anthony Hope has familiarized us.   Miss Elliott was at her best,
the role fitting her like a glove; all she
had to do was to move gracefully and
artistically through a series of scenes in
which she was as natural as if she never
moved anywhere else.   Her beauty and
grace carried her through.   Upon her
dramatic   instincts   no great   demands
were mtide, but even in this respect she
was thoroughly   satisfying.   I  should,
however, like to see her in something
more exacting, as in society comedies
such as this there is always a lingering
doubt as to whether her success is not
as much due to her great beauty as to
her histrionic ability. The company
gave her excellent support, and the
mounting and staging was all that could
be desired.
*   *   *
"Peggy from Paris," with a mediocre
American company, took the stage at
the Victoria Theatre on Wednesday
night. Wih the single exception of the
young lady who played the part of a
German girl, the company was b .
The lady in question was an artist of
quite rare type, and her work was highly appreciated. For one pretty little
song she received a triple encore. Of
the rest of the company little need be
said. What I am puzzled about is to
discover some connection between the
title and the musical comedy; there was
not a touch of Paris about the whole
thing, not even about Peggy, who was
supposed to have been there, but who,
judging from her accent and deportment, had never been any further east
than Chicago. The audience was good-
humoured and made the best of things,
but it is open betting whether the frequent laughter was with or at the company.
*   #   *
On Thursday night Alberta Gallatin
appeared at the Victoria Theatre in
"Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall."
The play, whilst not exciting, is interesting, and Miss Gallatin gave an intelligent presentation of the title role. Her
work showed considerable improvement
upon her representation of "Cousin
Kate" some months ago, but there are
other plays which would be much better suited to her style. The audience
was appreciative, and the support was
above the average.
* * *
The company which has been appearing on the boards of the New Grand
Theatre during the present week is, in
the opinion of most people who have
seen it, the very best that has ever visited Victoria, The star turn is that of
the Three Hiltons, in a marvelous bicycling act, which combines humouir
with a skill which I have never seen
equalled. Individual feats of this nature are common enough, but the triple
performance   of these talented   artists
Mr. and Mrs. Perkins, is an effective
little piece out of the common run of
such presentations, and depicts in a comic strain, with a touch of pathos well
introduced, the  condition of a hamlet
which has fallen behind in the advance
of   civilization.     The   comic   musical
sketch put on by Tipple and Kliment
was successful in provoking a continuous
roar of laughter, the antics of the nigger   being   especially   amusing.     Mrs.
Darlington is said to be the only woman
who has successfully taken the part of
a Chinese woman in vaudeville, and the
turn given by her and her husband is
clever in the extreme; whilst she is performing wonderful balancing feats with
lighted lamps and other trifles, he conjures with a cigarette, or rather with
the smoke of one.   The illustrated song
this week is the prettiest that I have
seen up to the present; the slides which
accompany   "Somewhere"    are    really
beautiful ,and the song itself is very
much superior to the usual melodramatic   variety.    Mr. Roberts sings this
with real expression, and to my mind
made the biggest hit that he has scored
for some time.   The only item on the
programme  which is not first-class is
the last one, viz., the moving pictures,
whic hthis week are neither as amusing nor as interesting as they have been
lately;  perhaps  this  feeling,  however,
is due to the fact that the rest of the
performance is so far above the average
that they only suffer by comparison.
*   *   *
At the Empress Theatre there have
been two plays, the first of which, "The
Fatal Card," is a stirring drama, and
attracted good houses. In direct contrast, the second half of the week was
filled up with "The Strange Adventures
of Miss Browne," which may best be
described as a roaring farce. It was
through the medium of this play that
E. H. Southern first gained popularity
in this country. The adventures consist in the experiences of an English
captain, who, having married a wealthy
girl, still a ward in Chancery and at a
boarding school, assumes female attire
and thus gains an entree to his wife's
school. Mr. Arthur Cyril as the captain
scored a big success. If anyone wants
a real good laugh, I advise him to go
to the Empress Theatre tonight for the
last performance of this piece.

' Society is full of misery due to the
blunders of parents in failing to speak
out. How much of the evil in our great
cities comes from this it would be dismal to contemplate. As a young man,,
I say to fathers, 'Speak to your sons,

Hampson, a Belgian professor, suggested fixing marriageable ages at eighteen
fo rgirls and twenty for boys. "With
thise ncouraged by parents, all the evils
we have been talking of would disappear," he said. "The great trouble is
that men and women marry to late in
life. Let us urge them to marry
earlier."

"The Strength of the Weak," which
will appear at the Victoria Theatre next j
Monday, is an innovation in the way
of college plays, which.up to the present have always portrayed the male side
of college education. In this play, however, the female side is exhibited, and
as it will be conceded that women should
be best fitted to write on such subjects,
the fact that this play is the work of
two college women should tend to give
Miss Florence Roberts, who takes the
star part, one of the best roles she has
had.for many years.
Girls Should Marry at 18; Boys at 20.
"Let girls marry at eighteen and boys
at twenty, and the world will be relieved of some of its gravest problems."
This was the advice given by a speaker
at a conference of the Parents' National
Educational Union at Brighton on Monday, following an address by Lord Lyt-
ton.
Lord Lytton gave what he called "A
young man's lecture to his parents."
"The time has come for parents to
realise they have made some grave mistakes," he said. "In the first place, it
is a mistake for a rich father to bring
up his son in ignorance of the responsibilities of an inheritance. Some fathers go on as if they expected to live
for ever. Every boy should be taught
how to handle money, not alone for his
own sake, but because he may some
time   have   charge of  other  people's
money.
"But a question more vital still is
that of sex. There is a tendency among
parents nowadays to assume an unwise
timidity in speaking of such matters.
If instead of being timid and obscure in
their advice parents would be quite
frank it would prevent much evil from
which the world now suffers. To many
pirls the real meaning of marriage is a
sealed hook, and this is largely the fault
of their mothers. From whom can they
belter look for advice than from their
•"others? Yet the latter often remain
'i'ent  because of want of  mirage to
peak plainly.
