To the Undying Memory of Scotland's
Bard, in Feast and Speech
Our local Scotsmen did honor to their
immortal poet, Burns, on Saturday last,
when a lar_;e gathering of the "Clans"
took place in the capacious dining room
of the Great Northern hotel.
After a satisfying supper, which reflected gieat credit on the management
of the hotel, had been partaken of, the
usual program of songs-and- toasts v as
entered heartily into. Songs were ren
dered by Messrs. Gordon and Drummonr1;
readings by Mr. Craig, step dances by
Messrs. Drummond and J McDonald,
while selections on the bag pipes were
rendered by W. Forsyth.
The Tqast-master,   Mr. Gellatly,  then
called upon the following gentlemen  foi
toasts,    "Scotsmen at home and abroad'
proposed by Mr Craig; replied to by Mr
Gordon.      "Wives,   Sisters   and   Sv\ee
hearts" proposed by Mr.   Drummond; re
plied to by  Mr. Coulthard.    "The  Mer
chants of   E{jn£eton," proposed   by Mr
Ferrier,  replied to  by Mr    Bell:    ' The
Indies of Princeton."  proposed by Jack
McDonald,   replied to  by Mr.   McLeod;
"Canada.   Our Adopted  Country,"   pro
posed by Mr. Livingstone; replied to by
Mr. Craig;    "The King  & Queen,"   pro
posed bv Mr. Gellatly, replied to by Mr.
Morrison.
After these toasts had been satisfactorily
disposed of, the chairman, Mr Livingstone called upon Mr. Craig to propose
the toast for the evening' "The Immortal
Memory," and remarked that it was a
great pleasure to him to be present
among so many of his fellow country
men on this great occasion. Mr. Craig
in a very able speech in his own inimitable way proposed the Immortal Memory
which was received and drunk in silence.
The evening altogether was a very
successful and enjoyable one and reflects
great credit on Messrs McLeod, Morrison
and McDonald, who managed it throughout, and was brought to a close by sing
ing Auld Lang Syne.—Com

The Castle Square Entertainers gave
a most enjoyable and amusing program
to a large audience in the I O.O.F. hall
on Monday evening. The ensemble of
voices was perfect and the singing harmonious throughout. The whistling
stunt was a marvellous imitation of bird
singing and the character songs and impersonations fairly Convulsed the audience. The whole performance was clean
and clever.
PANAMA CANAL.
Its Effect Ion Steamship Routes and
Traffic on Sea Highways.
A forcast of the changes likely to be
effected in existing steamship routes by
the opening of the Panama canal forms
the subject of a recent article in Hansa.
Steamers proceeding from Europe to
San Francisco will take the Panama
route, thus saving 6,200 sea miles, as
compared with the route via Cape Horn.
Steamers from Monteal to Sidney will
also use the canal, saving 2,738 sea miles.
It is uncertain whether freighters from
Europe to Valparaiso will take the canal
route, which would save only 2,100 miles,
but passenger ships will doubtless prefer
the shorter route, and will serve the east
coast of South America by means o^y^^;
illary ships sailing from West _ndian
ports.
Between Europe aud Japan the route
via Suez will still be preferred, as at present, since the Panama route would be
1,000 miles longer; but betSveen New
Yark and Shanghai the Panama route
will be chosen, thus saving 1,4000 sea
miles. Between Europe and Australia
the present route, is only 800 miles
longer than will be that via Panama;
possibly not enough to cause the abandonment of the former.
Aside from the consideration of distance, the journey via Panama obviates
the usually rough and stormy rounding of
Cape Horn, and this fact will considerably affect the passenger routes.
Steps are already being taken to prepare for redistribution of the coatTrade
that will result from the changes of
route above referred to. English firms
are reported to be arranging to open
coaling stations at Nnkulofa, the capital
of the Friendly Islands, and on Pitcairn
Island.—Scientific American.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Prof. • Marks, dancing master, leaves

REAL GRIEVANCES.
Many complaints are made regarding the administration of the
Kamloops registry office, causing
unreasonable delay to those having
business to transact there and a lot
of worry and unnecessary correspondence. It is an unfortunate
matter that the public, who pay for
tbe services of the registrar and all
tbe other employees of his office,
should be subject to untold annoyance through the unbusinesslike
conduct of an important branch of
i^jj", public service, such as tbe land
registry offi.e at Kamloops. It is
become a byword of reproach that
if an example of dilatory, unsys
tematic and raw business methods
be required one  has only to look to
some government  office.    Unpunc-
tuality and incompetency are prevalent and public convenience is ignored  or  made subservient to the
ease and  arrogance  of some petty
official.     All   governments   under
the party and spoils systems are infected with  a  useless  type of employe whose sole claim to a position
is 'political pull.'     This    class   of
employe  brings   governments into
disrepute  and   makes   a laughing
stock of those responsible  for  the
administration of public  business.
How long  would any private business prosper if run upon lines similar to those   indicated?    The land
registry office at Kamloops is a sen?
ous   handicap to  business transactions  requiring registration, delaying and entangling transfers of real
estate or   other   property, thus discouraging investment  and hampering   progress.     This  condition   of
affairs  at Kamloops may   be ended
on the  sayso  of the inspector ; if
he will not act, then the department
responsible      must.       Promptness,
accuracy, quickness, should   be the
aim of every   public servant,   if he
fails in these he ought   to be made
to give way to better men.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
After, centuries of agitation, net
unmixed with blood, the stain of
British statesmanship is about to be
wiped away and Ireland will obtain
salf government.     Every lover of
liberty will rejoice to see a peaceful
Ireland,   its people  bubbling with
wit, humor  and  contentment, and
the   land   producing   great wealth.
Chronic agitators  have in the past
ani are now receiving large salaries
and profits out  of the  cat and'dog
squabbles  which   they   fan aud foment  and whicfi are a disgrace  to
Ireland  and  civilization.     It  is a
fundamental   principle  in  all civilized governments and communities
that the  majority  rule  and   if the
majority of Irish,  Welsh or Scotch
want  self government  such as we
have in Canada, there is no denying
the  privilege on logical or reasonable  grounds.    The Irish question
has   been   befogged   with religious
and racial prejudices introduced for
a certain effect  among certain people by   wily  agitators.     On  a fair
political basis securing the rights of
the   minority   the    Irish   question
seems near solution—pax vobiscum.

The woods are full of amateur
newspapermen who are always
ready to/ offer their opinions and
give their weighty advice to the
experiericed journalist as to the
conduct of a paper. They relate
with amusing gusto how they came
to 'write for the papers' and how
their contributions added fame and
subscribers to the famishing weekly.
As long as there is a fool-egotist
left there will be silly criticisms of

Dr. C. O. Fletcher in the Evening
Blade, Santa Ana, Cal., says : After 17 years of the study and practice of medicine and surgery I have
learned from the earnest study and
application of the truth as taught
in the Christian Science text book
that it is more potent to heal than
any other agency. My family and

That rae day is fast approac_fTng
when women will be given equal
rights with men at the polls is beyond doubt. Change and progress
are necessary to the vitality of a
nation and woman suffrage is a step
forward. Some women and effete
men object to female suffrage, urging that they, (women) are not sufficiently informedto vote intelligent^.
There is no compulsion to vote and
those who are not quite sure of
their ability will do their country
good service by staying at home,
yet allow their more competent
sister to vote.

start right in to get breakfast ? Can you do this with your own stove ? You ran
with ours.
OUR NEW CHANCELLOR RANGES will do all this, and they will do
more. They will save you 20 per cent, on your Fuel Bill with their Economizer
attachment. They are fitted with Reversible Grates for Coal or Wood, which pull
right out and can be quickly adjusted without disturbing the lining They have a
[arge oval shaped firebox—no corners for dead ashes to lodge.
THEY ARE THE BEST BAKERS-Tbe oven top and sides are lined with
Expanded Metal and Asbestos, and the dividing flue strips which run alone the
top and down side of the oven ensures an even fire travel over oven. These two
features alone mean a properly heated ov;n and consequently the best baking
results. "
THEY ARE BUILT FOR HARD USAGE.    They are fitted with the largest
bteel Top on any range, with  either 4 or 6 9 inch holes, and have Reservoir attachment on either end.    The Range  body  is made of Wellesville polished blue steel
put together with steeple headed rivets. '
AND THEY ARE HANDSOME. Come and see fo. yourself and you will
agree that our Chancellor is without doubt the finest STEEL RANGE made.
We have just received a carload of these Ranges and other Stoves and feel
sure that we can please you.    Separate Hot Water Fronts for all our Ranges.   '■
Another   Npw  Arrival—A   Carload   of Ar   Feed Oats.    Also a
Carload of firsT'ciass Timothy Hay.    Get busy before they are all gone.

SINGLE TAX IS RIGHT.
Twenty years ago in British Columbia,
the man who professed belief in the taxation principles of Henry George, was
regarded a socialist by some, and an anarchist by others Last Saturday evening a party of Victoria gentlemen met at
the Alexandria Club to pay their respects
to Chas. Lugn'n, who, in the taxation
V* commissioners'   report,   practically  con
fesses his conversion to the- the George
__*-_^_, theory. The first man in British Columbia to take up his pen in advocacy of
single tax was John McMillan,.afterwards an Alderman of Victoria. In a
series of letters pnblished in the old
Victoria Home Journal in 1892 over the
signature of "Cressett," Mr. McMillan
commenced the work of instructing the
people in the principles of single tax,
and the fact that, every man of intellectual pretentions in British Columbia today acknowledges belief in the George
theory of taxation on land values is the
best tribute to the fearlessness and persistency with which John "McMillen ad
vocated the cause twenty years ago
CLOTHES LINES.
To the Editor of the Scientific American.—Lately I have been seeing notices
of several inventions made for cloth
hangers, and I thought it would be of
interest to your readers if I mention that
about the simplest cloth hanger I have
ever come across is the oue used by the
Indian washerman. He simply takts
t«'o ropes and twists them together, and
when he desires lo hang up any clothing
he opens out one of the twists and places
the end of the cloth into this open twist,
thus securely hanging up the clothing
without any injur} to the cloth whatsoever. Maurice Oppenheimer.
