Semi=Bituminous Coal in Princeton basin.
The selfish life is empty, also unhappy: Give and get.
Trade follows enterprise, and enterprise is the outcome of business tact and vigor—A general movement upward is the tendency of
the times and prospects are better than ever—Princeton Coal and Land Co. making large addition to plant, pther industries likewise.

to Future.
B.C. Copper Co. Making Start in Big
Mining Development for
Voigt Camp.
f: Ed. Beiryman is superintendent in
4%barge of all the B C. Copper Co^s work
iiilVoigt Camp ; Robt Hargreaves is purchasing agent and Jim Fredln is accountant. With the staff organized and*
machinery and supplies j6n the ground,
mining will be begun -in earnest. Two
steamJio__i__5___/in_Jj£\t£ansported to the
camp at once, and ore miue.rs from Greenwood are arriving daily.
As a result of the B.C. Copper Co. establishing large mining operations at
jjoigt Camp, it is expected that an early
fi move will be made in construction of the
/Jlv., V. & E. up the Sitnnkaineen river to
^Ashnola V
Geo. Aldous has recentlv taken a con
tract from the B C. Copper Co. for driving
a tunnel loo feet on the Duke 'of York
n ineral claim, Copper Mountain. He
will also erect a log ca$_n to accommodate a gang of miners.
- "Mike Gaynor, recently returned from
/rjBridge river, in Lillooet district, reports
'What all the placer ground has been staked
during the recent stampede there.   He
mined there in the early days, when fifty
and hundred dollar nuggets were quite
common.    He loc_!9*fo_-.good results in
placer mining in the Tulameen section.
r
Robert Gourlay, A. W.^gpurtn. y and
I T.^J. Fitzpatrick were applicants for certificates at the examinations recently
made at Merritt.
G. W. Aldous and R. O. Cramer have
been doing some work on the Silver Dollar mineral claim on Copper Mountain,
and have some very fine showings, which
is described as the best yet, not excepting
the celebrated Sunset.
Con Fewclothes came up from Camp
McKinney, where he had been uuwater-
ing the Waterloo for Lewis Haud, M.E
The old camp is quite deserted and forlorn, and Con says the gang must have
killed a million bushytail rats, so daring
and plentiful had these vermin become.
Charlie Oliver, M.E., was in the company and sampled the various workings.
It is not known yet whether the Waterloo
will ever be productive again.
Fred Keffer, expert for the B.C. Copper
\ Co., went up to Voigt Camp last week
and is gradually getting things in shape
for development on a large scale. Con-
tn cts for tunnelling, etc., are being let,
beside a lot of work in the main camp is
being done  by the company  by day's
labor. Mr. Keffer visited Whipsaw camp
in company with Sam Spencer before returning to Greenwood.
TAXATION COMMISSIONERS.
Commissioners appointed to enquire
into and report upon the operation of the
'Assessment Act, 1903,' held a sittings
last Saturday in the court house at 4 p m.
The commissioners are : Hon. Price Elli
son, finance minister; Hon. A. E. Mc-
Phillips, president of the council ; C. H.
Lugrin, editor,, of Victoria, and W. H.
Malkin, merchant, of Vancouver. There
were only three examined, C. M. Snowden, E. Waterman/and J. M. Wright
Suggestions rejthye abolition of the poll
tax, reduction) W tax on crown granted
mineral claims,Equalization of wild land
tax according to value of land, modification of succession tax, so that the province
would acquire, all wealth over $50,000 at
decease of owner, posting up of assessment roll and poll tax payers so that the
public may know how much and who
pays, etc. The evidence took a wide
irange and the commissioners evinced a
strong desire to acquire all the informal
tion possibly         _

RANCH CHANGES OWNERS.
Major Conanr. recently purchased ttaej
, well-known r^jfcli 'Tullochardf from K.
F. McKenzie, w__> wil_£hortly £agr a visit
to 'Auld Scotia.T Mr. McKemzie has been
an early resident of this section and 'made
good ' as the result of his excellent judgment in selecting ' TullochardJ' for a prospective homesite. The location of this
ranch affords fine fishing and bunting,
and Tullochard has been a sort of shrine
at which the devotees of sport frequently
enjoyed the hospitality of the 'laird.' Recently Mr. and Mrs J. L. G. Abbott of
Vancouver and Major Conant were guests
and had some fine fishing. Some 5,000
cutthroat trout fry have b^en placed in
the lake and creek and they are multiplying prodigiously.
PERKINS-ALLISON.
A quiet wedding was soltnnized at Vancouver on Monday,.October 2, when Mr.
Albion E. Perkigs and Miss Alice O.
Allison were united in the bonds of matrimony by the Rev. A. Langford. Both
the contracting parties are well known
and popular in this district. The bride is
a daughter of Mrs. A. Allison, who, with
her husband, were the first to settle here,
and has many relatives in this neighborhood. Star joins with a host of friends in
wishing Mr. and Mrs. Perkins happiness
and prosperity in their new life duties.
Mr. and Mrs. Perkins will reside on the
beautiful Allison homesite west- of the
Tulameen bridge.        J ■<^_^'
W. A. Nicholson, of Phoenix, is in
town and n_ay start a tobacco store. Mr.
Nichplsoi/ lost his eyesight in a mine
accident' and is worthy of public
patroaflge.
RAIL HEAD IS MOVING
Slow Progress Due to Many
Crossings of the Tula*
meen River.
Coquihalla Pass is the 'Piece de Resistance' for Engineers—Branch j
to Ashnola.
It is generally reported that the branch
line to Ashnola, already surveyed by the
Great Northern some years ago, will be
built within the year 1912. The B.C.
Copper Co. has been the magnet to attract steel rails that far.  Jt!±
Tbe railhead has now reached the
fourth crossing of the Tulameen, on the
V., V. &E.
J. H. Kennedy, construction engineer
for the Great Northern, has been in
Princeton about a week. He is so busy
that he has not time to tell the world',
through the Star, when the last connect- (
ing link on the V., V. & E. will be built, i
He looks for contracts to be let as soon as
the engineers have finished locating
Coquihalla Pass, probably about the first
of January, next. Spme seven miles of
tunneling will b. r. gnir. _ in t_. pass at
different points, most of this distance,
however, will obviate the construction of
snowsheds.
I Before the sound of the building of the
Great Northern Railway dies away to the
northeast of Hope, grading will have begun for the V., V. & E. in the valley of
the Coquihalla. To the Canadian Northern
Hope will be a station of steadily growing
importance. To the V., V. & E. it will
be a junction from the first and practically
the western terminus. It is learned that
the company has decided to locate its car
shops and yards at Hope, on a site not yet
determined, or if determined not announced, but probably on the west- side
of the Coquihalla. As is well known, the
V., V. & E. will not parallel the C. N. R.
tracks, connecting with .he Great Northern system again, at the southern approach
to the New Westminster bridge.—West
Yale Review.
J. P. Smith, general land agent of the
C.P.R., reports that the amount of the
railway land in the west sold in August
and September was eight times that disposed of for the same period last y.ear.
PUBLIC ROADS.
j Deputy Minister of Public Works Griffiths was in town Monday looking over
conditions cencerning his department,
and, in conjunction with L. W. Shatford,
M.P.P., was inspecting road improvements already made and others to be
carried out. The transprovincial road,
now being surveyed by Engineer Glover,
is the most important work affecting this
section, and will follow the direct available route across the province, arriving at
Princeton from the west via the Similkameen river It is satisfactory to know
that a good grade has been found down
the Similkameen from the summit of
Hope mountains. Work on the trans-
provincial road is not expected to begin
before the early spring and will then be
pushed to completion. Between Princeton and Ashnola the road and the branch
line of the V., V. & E. will be contiguous
yet affording ample roomlalong the river
for both.
Road Superintendent Turner has givei
instructions to Foreman Hedley to continue Onemile road beyond the boundary
of SimilKameen^fistrict into that of Nicola.
This road \fcj_l ultimately link up these
districts and afford a much-needed outlet
to ranchers and mining camps.
Copper Mountain road is being placed
in good repair for the large amount of
traffic which will result from the opera--
tions of the B.C. Copper Co. in Voigt
Camp. Bert Thomas has charge of this
work.

REVIEW OF THE COPPER HANDBOOK. VOL. X.
Vol. X., the tenth annual edition of the
Copper Handbook, is just received. The
new issue of this work, which is consider
ed a standard authority on the subject of
copper and copper mines for the entire
globe, has 1,902 octavo pages, containing
.nearly 1,500,000 words, and, in] addition
to the miscellaneous chapters, lists and
describes 8,130 copper mines and copper
mining companies in all parts of the
world, this being the largest number of
titles ever listed by any work on mining.
The descriptions range from two to three
lines, in the case of dead companies,
wherein reference is made to detailed de.
scriptions in past volumes at the period
of their activity, up to twenty one pages
in the case of the Anaconda mine, which
yields one-eighth of all the copper made
in the world.
The.miscellaneous chapters of the book,
twenty-four in number, treat the subject
of copper from all possible viewpoints,
there 'being chapters on the history,
chemistry, mineralogy, metallurgy,
brands and grades, alloys and substitutes
for copper, with a copious glossary, and a
chapter of statistics ending the book that
contains 40-odd tables, thoroughly covering copper production, consumption,
movements, prices dividends, etc. The
Copper Handbook is sold on the unique
plan adopted nine years ago, the publisher sending the book by mail, prepaid, and
subject to return after a week's inspection. The price is $5 in a strong gre'e'n
buckram binding with silk headband and
gilt top, or J7.50 in full library morocco.
Anyone interested in. copper, as a produce:, consumer or investor in shares,
would do well to write the author and
publisher, Horace J. Stevens, Houghton,
Michigan, ordering a copy of the new
Copper Handbook sent prepaid,.subject;
to approval. V_^/£i_V

DISCOVERY AND INVENTION.
A Goose-neck.—^One of the handiest
tools in working around a house or small
shop is a goose neck. It is practically a
* nail crowbar, pointed at one end to form
a pinch bar and returned at the other epd^
)to form a claw which can be used for pulling nails or small spikes. It is easily
made, inexpensive, can be used in many
ways and be found' especially useful in
moving stones or other heavy objects,
opening boxes, wrecking small buildings
and in a hundred other ways in which a
small, easily handled crowbar can be used
to advantage.
Blowing Bad Breath Away From
The Dentist —A dental appliance, providing means whereby a flat blast of air
will be delivered betwesu the face of the
patient and that of the operator, thereby
preventing each fiom inhaling the other's
breath, has been patented to Charles W.
Davinson of Jefferson.City, Mo. [It would
be useful in other callings.
Progress of the African Railways.
By next July there will be continuous
railway communication between Cape
Town and the town of Kambove, in the
Congo, 270 miles north of the Rodesian
boundary ; a total distance of over 2,400
miles. The railway is already in opera--
tion as far as Elizabethville, 165 miles
north of thi Congo bolder. . From Kambove an extension has been surveyed to
Bukama, 200 miles further north, on a
navigable tributary of the Congo. In a
few months a railway will be begun from
Kambove westward 100 miles to Ruwe.
This is destined ultimately to connect up
with the line that is being pushed eastward frcm Bengeula, on the Atlantic
coast, and which now extends 230 miles
into the interior.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
THAT POTATO EXHIBIT.
The potato commissioner, C. H. Stuart
Wade, who visited this district last week^
was somewhat disappointed in his efforts
to secure a representative exhibit of potatoes. No doubt there are still splendid
samples of tubers here, but the time at
his disposal was limited, and the work of
collecting the potatoes, which should have
been done by the board of trade, as in
other places, was not attended to.
The commissioner is a man who has
travelled the provinces of Alberta and
British Columbia thoroughly, and is well
known in literary circles as. a publicity
writer as well as being secretary of the
New Westminster Board of Trade, a body
recognized as being one of the most efficient organizations in the whole of Canada.
Mr. Wade is very optimistic as regards
the results of the exhibition, and, though
he will not express a definite opinion as
to the results, he is satisfied that the exhibit will be both a credit and a surprise
to those who visit the New York Land
Exposition next month.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Star regrets an oversight in reporting
the ' social evening' by the Anglican
church in which omission was made of
what is really a most important feature of
the occasion—the tour around the world,
stalls representing the various nations,
from whence good things were dispensed
by the handsome young ladies in attendance.
The Tulameen hotel has installed an
up-to-date range in its kitchen, its weight
being over 4,500 lbs., and contains all the
improvements for scientificpooking. The
equipment and installation on cement
floor, together witlythe all-steel range
aud fire brick letting cost $500, but the
best is none too good for the Tulameen.
Tuesday night last week a man under
demoniacal influence created a hideous
noise and damaged the store front of A.
Bell by kicking the panels aud breaking
the window glass. Mr. Bell called Con-
stable Martin who had thef manTBdged in
the skookum house at an early hour in
the morning.

through its honored representative,
Martin Burrell, M.P , now that he
has been created a minister in Premier Borden's cabinet. Since 1908,
when first elected, the hon. gentleman has proven his worth as a legislator and representative, reflecting
the greatest credit upon himself and
his constituents both in public and
private life. His ability as debater
and speaker in the house of commons from the first, secured for him
a seat among the front benchers, but
it is his thorough technical knowledge of horticulture and general
qualification in the wider field of
agriculture that has made him the
choice of his leader. As Minister
of Agriculture the Hon. Martin
Burrell will have full scope for his
natural talents, and that department, as never before, will be guided
into a sphere of greater usefulness
and consequent benefit to the whole
Dominion. As with all ministers,
he has to be re-elected, and will
shortly come before his constituents
for that purpose. No opposition
will Le given to this formal procedure, or if there should be it will
prove to be even more futile than
on the 2 ist ult.
TAXATION.
Much good will undoubtedly come
from the enquiry made by royal
commission into the interesting
question of taxation. The government is wise to the fact that inequalities and errors of judgment in the
process of levying taxes exist, to
remedy which the taxpayers themselves are invited to consult with
the commissioners. This is a species
of referendum in which democracy
or the will of the people is paramount and is a true exposition of
the principle : government by the
people and for the people. Other
important public matters could well
be referred to the people in the same
manner, and the government in
close touch with the heart and mind
of the people is both safest and
sanest. And while the people enter
into these heart to heart talks with
the government, through its commissioners, and unfold their confid
ences, it is only fair exchange that
the government should take the people into their confidence. The minutest detail of public expenditure ;
the name, amount of taxes paid and
assessment of every person ; the
name of everyone paying poll tax ;
the source of all revenue, etc.,
should be printed and published by
the government and distributed to
the public. As light is a great curative agency so is it a great corrective of abuses. The people pay.
They have the right to know what
is done with every cent of their I ^
money. Nothing hidden or with- ^
held from public information is the
surest way to establish confidence,
justice and contentment. The aim
of good government is to equalize
the burdens. The poor ought to
be the first consideration of every i ^
ministry, for they are vastly in
majority, and any betterment in
their condition contributes most to
the wealth aud strength of thi.
nation. The burden of taxation
should rest on those able to pay,
and, after a fortune of, say, over
fifty thousand dollars has been accumulated by any citizen, the state
should acquire the balauce for educational aad charitable purposes.
The poll and the mineral taxes on
crown granted claims should be reduced or abolished.

SURROUNDING
EAST
PRINCET
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., was in town
recently taking a run over his constituency in connection with his public duties.
His health is very much improved and he
is looking fit for the strenuous demands
made upon his time.
Bill Scruby arrived in town yesterday,
after about two year's absence, he having
spent most of the time travelling. He
saw no place with the possibilities of
Princeton, and, more than ever, he is
confirmed in his opinion that here is a
place offering safe investment and grand
opportunities. He will settle down here
and give up further roving.
A. E. Howse, Miss Ruby and Charlie
Howse, and J. B. Giffen, manager for R.
G. Dun & Co., were an auto part}' arriv-j
ing Saturday, leaving for Nicola yesterday. Mr. Howse is pleased with the
evidences of progress.
' O. Rain is again at work after a rheumatic attack.
Miss Alleine, of Penticton, will start a
bakery in the large house ou Fenchurch
avenue.
Mrs. Bysouth and Mrs. Turner will open
ashort order counter in the Freuch block.
A literary contribution to the Star, prose
and poetry, lacking the author's name, is
laid over to a future issue.
P. Marquart was in town last week on
business. •
Canadian five and ten dollar gold pieces
will soon be in circulation.
v\he Princeton CoaJ & Land  Co. are
stringing an  electric wire to their office
a__\t_re resittenc/of the superintendent.
Byelection o^/es for ministers have been
fixed for November 3rd.
Commercial travelers in Princeton gave

SOUNDEST INVESTMENTS
In British Columbia.
**z*<**>*z<**:<<**Z'*z-*z<**z**z**>
CITY  LOTS  ARE  BEING  OFFERED  FOR
SALE FOR THE FIRST TIHE.
IT IS INEVITABLE THAT THE VALUE OF
THESE LAND5 WILL GREATLY INCREASE
Here are some of the Reasons :
East Princeton is surrounded by huge de=
posits of Coal, Cement, Copper, Gold, and
other important flinerals.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co. is erecting a half a million dollar plant,
which will employ between 300 and 400 men.
The United Empire Co. is shipping a lig=
nite coal of the best quality and is developing
immense copper deposits, requiring large re=
duction works and several hundred em=
ployees. The Princeton Coal & Land Co. is
increasing its daily shipments to 300 tons of
coal, providing employment to about 150
men. Other coal companies are spending
over $2,000,000 in development, and will give
work to at least 1,000 men.
For transportation, East   Princeton will
have, in the near future, the Great Northern
and the Kettle Valley lines, both of which,
£   will pass through the townsite.
East Princeton is beautifully situated on
the Similkameen River, with an abundance
of water power available. The new city has
every facter for growth into a big industrial
centre.

THE GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY.
Afaiong the persons who have recently
madesprowsion for old age when it comes
are two sisters aged respectively 33 and
34 years. They have purchased from the
Canadian Government a Last Survivor
Annuity, that is an annuity which will
give them together an income of $600 a
year so long as they both live, and to be
continued to the survivor so long as she
lives. The cost of this annuity, $3,643.65,
had been invested at 5 per cent, and had
brought in less than $185 annually, with
the difficulty and annoyance of reinvestment. The annuity becomes payable
when the younger sister attains the age of
55, and should both die before that time,
the purchase money will be refunded to
their heirs with 3 per cent, compound interest. Each is now earning her own
living, and the sum paid is the fruit of
their labors for a number of years. They
were thus able the belter to appreciate
their splendid opportunhy. A card of
enquiry addressed to the Superintendent
of Canadian Government Annuities,
Ottawa, will secure for you any informa
tion you desire on the subject.

TRAPPER'S SNOW MEASURES.
Editor Star—Sir : Replying to your
inquiries re The Snowfall on Roche river
aud adjacent territory, the snow was much
deeper in the winter of 1909-10 than in
1910 11. The greatest depth I measured
was 7 feet at Home Cabin, three miles
northeast of Muddy pass This was about
March"1, 1910! _rt that time there' was
about 36 in. at Three Forks and. 26 ip. to
28 inch at mouth of Roche river. It was
considerably deeper than any of the above
mentioned points near the head of the
Middle Fork of Roche river, but I did
not measure it there, and perhaps you
are not interested as regards that part of
our territory. The deepest measurements
taken last winter, 1910-11, was at the head
of Cambie creek (North Fork). This was
60 in., 46 in. iu T?"\_rtwl pass dividp_he
tween Malmaloosejc/eek and Cedar creek,
32 in. at Home cabin and 20 inTaTThree
Forks. These measurements were taken
about New Year. I measured'59 in snow
in Muddy pass on March 5, 1911, and estimate there was at least 72 in. at head of
Cambie creek at that time, possibly more,
as my skijiole ■nrn<itnr .__rt tg reach bot-
tom. It seems to me the heaviest snowfalls'come during late February or early
March, that is, if the last two winter* be
taken as a guide. My brother can give
depth of snow at Sunday creek, Copper
creek, etc. Yours truly,
Three Forks. Harry Gordon.

MOST PEOPLE want to invest their money where
they are reasonably sure of a good return. If the
investment is to be made in real estate there are several
things to be considered : The situation of the town, climatic
conditions, transportation facilities, and primarily the
amount of the monthly payroll. When these questions are
asked regarding Coalmont they may all be answered to the
credit of the town. The situation and climatic conditions
are ideal ; the main line of the V.,V. & E. railway runs
through the town on its way to Vancouver.
The Columbia Coal & Coke Co. operating here have practically an inexhaustible supply of a pure bituminous coal.
They are installing immediately a plant which will handle
2000 tons of coal in 8 hours—this means employment for between
800 and 900 men all told.
Figure out this payroll and see how many coal mining towns
in B C. can beat it.
In a very short time Coalmont will necessarily have a population of from 2000 to 2500 people. Will this cause real estate to rise?
We all know the answer. Then take the opportunity thai presents'
itself now—buy first hand and reap the benefit of this increase.
The prices and terms are such that anyone can afford to inves'
to the extent of one or two lots. They range from $175 to $550, on
terms of )*{ cash, balance over 18 months.

That there is an abundant field for the
investment of capital is shown by the
success attendant upon the operation of
established enterprises.
From these operations the late Hon. R.
Dunsmuir was made a millionaire and
and the capital furnished for constructing
the E. & N. Railway on Vancouver Island.
An average profit of #773,755 per annum
for the years 1908, 1608 and 1909, the
average profit per ton of coal being $1,
has been realized from these coals, after
allowing for all expenses, other than depreciation and exhaustion of minerals,
and allowing for the addition for 1909 of
$20,775 intejgst on the mortgage of the

The Crowsnest Pass Coal Company's
operations have for many years yielded a
considerable profit, from which its shareholders have received regular returns at
the rate of 10 per cent per annum on the
par value of the stock.
The Vancouver Coal Company, until
lately the Western Fuel Co.,Jpaid small
dividends from 2)4 to 3 per cent., chiefly
attributable to the concern beingover
capitalized and having too many shafts
with long haulage, etc.
■ Your property is proportionately as
valuable as any of those, and can produce
a clear profit of fi per ton.
Oil fuel for steamships has made considerable progress recently, and, as these
coals never find such markets, these profits are excellent and more certain than
many of the metalliferous mines operating, consequently making coal still king
and the premier industrial asset of the
province, and is therefore absolutely indispensable for over a century, at least,
until some inventive genius discovers
discovers some commercially possible
way of supplanting the use of coal.
Prospec.ing for coal, like mining, is
not a geme of chance, but legitimate venture that should be conducted under
honest, competent management, without
over-capitalization or appeals to shareholders by fraudulent or ignorant misrepresentation.
Apprisae and Titles.
In appraising coal lands it is customary
to indued only those coal-seams that presently or shortly will be workable, and to
ignore the thinner and impure seams of
no economic value. Coal lands located
that they cannot be reached by railway at
reasonable cost are of smaller value, and
coal underlying farm lands, situated at a
distance from railways or tidewater, are
also of little value, so long as the ownership remained vested in the farmer or
those unable to secure its development.
Your property is very valuable, being
of adequate commercial assemblage and
magnitude ; and excellently located with
such transportation facilities, the potentialities of which, from the estimated
quantities of coal they are likely to contain, are very vast, and practically unlimited with depth.

AN HONORABLE NEWSPAPER.
The Victoria Colonist, as becomes
a dignified newspaper, has the following generous words for a defeated
foe which some of the narrow minded scribes about the country would
do well to imitate. The Colonist is
Conservotive to the backbone, but
it has an admorable human quality
of not kicking an opponent when
down, hence its generous words regarding Sir Wilfrid Laurier will
haye the good effect of setting a-
standard for some of the ignoble
press, which delight in throwing
mud even at those who have went
down in honorable defeat:
' Both as a parliamentarian and a
prime minister he was above suspicion.    He has ever been actuated in
all his actions by motives which he
believed would redound to the credit
of his beloved country.    Whatever
measure of national importance he
fathered gained immensely through
his earnest advocacy and the inspiring belief which he instilled into his
followers.    His   title  of the silver-
tongued orator  was  richly earned.
Indefatigable in whatever cause he
espoused,   he   brought   the   whole
force of his intellect  to  bear   upon
the issue of the  moment, and   his
brilliant periods and striking phraseology have oftentimes carried-weight
where logical argu_ents have failed.
His winning personality is a thing
which few can resist.   He is indeed
'suaviter  in  mode,  fortiter  in re.'
Whenever he comes to be measured
up in the annals of his country he
will be remerabered as a diplomatist,
a courtier, a statesman and a patriot,
and as a man against whom no fin
. ger of scorn has ever been pointed
He  has  served   his country  to the
best of his great abilities, and it is a
:   matter   of  congratulation   that   his
period  of service is not yet ended
We wish Sir Wilfrid long life and
happiness. lthough   at_an   age
- when many public men are only too
anxious to retire, he has elected to
lead his party in opposition. That
he will do so w'th conspicuous ability
is very certain, and we hope that it
will be many years before the heavy
hand of time deprives Canada of his
intellect.'
