It is rather amusing, Saya the Victoria Week, to read the editorial- in
certain Liberal papers, which are m eking to determine for Premier MeBride
what his platform shall be, and also
to instruct tho electors as to what is
the real issne in tho ortheoining content. This attitude is amusing because
neither Premier MeBride nor Ilia critics
have anything to do with determining
the issue. Either might tiy to obscure
it; neither can create it. The issue has
been determined by circumstances. It
is entirely one of record. At election
times no one takes much not CO of pro-
miss, whether made by Conservative
or Liberal, and for tie purpose if argument, it. may not unfairly be conceded

Who Should Raise Horses.
In growing horses, as lu growing
other kinds of live stock, the most
potent factor is the man. Some men
should grow draft horses only. Some
should grow only trotters. The many
should raise the former, as they are
so much more easily grown. The few
should grow the latter. The men who
can grow good trotting horses, that
Is, trotting horses of really superior
merit, are few and far between while
those who can also develop them are
fewer still. Some men should not
grow any kind of horses, as they will
not make u success of It. They will
not make n success of It because they
do not understanei It or because they
do not like It, or for both reasons.
No one should entrnge In growing
horses who does not take kindly to
the work. And no one should -engage
In growing any particular kind of
horses or any class of the same unless
his tastes run In thnt line. However,
If one understands Ms business and
grows thnt clnss of horses In which
he Is most Interested there Is but

Haartlaaa Remark of Prinoe Herbert
Bismarck Almost Provoked H. R. H.
to Throw the German Offender Out
of the Room���Britona Interested In
the Astounding "Memoire of Prince
Hohenloha"���Kaiaer'e Telegram.
Much that Is  Interesting to Britons
la   contained  In   the   astounding  "Memoirs of Prince Hohenlohe  (published
by hla  son),  which  shed   considerable I
light on the relations of Kaiser Wilhelm !
II. and Prince Bismarck.   The publlca- I
tlon of the book has given the Kaiser '
much annoyance, and ha3 drawn forth
a fiery telegram of reprimand for the
young prinoe.
Prinoe   Hohenlohe   refers   to   Prinoe j
William  (the present Kmperor) in the j
following words:   "He   is   rather  boyish, Inconsiderate young man of whom
his   mother  Is   afraid.      He   also   has
rows with his father."
On Sept. 22. 1S88, Prinoe Hohenlohe
was received In audience by the Empress Augusta Victoria, the wife of Wll-
Uam I. "She was," he says, "very broken down and sad. We began by dls-
ousslng the Emperor's last days, and
then she beoamo animated, and spoke
of the maliciousness and the disgraceful behavior of certain people whom she
mentioned by name.
Angered Prince of Wales.
Prince Herbert Bismarck, the Empress added, had the Impudence to tell
the Prinoe of Wales that an emperor
(Kaiser Frederick) who was unable to
carry on a discussion was really Incapable of ruling. The Prince of Wales
��ald that, If he had not attached Importance to the good relations between
Great Britain and Germany, he would
have thrown Prince Bismarck out ot
the room."
The pagea relating to that period su
interesting to Britons���viz., tlie months
of December, 1895, and January, 1896���
oontaln no reference to tho Kruger
telegram, and the South African war
la barely mentioned. Prince Hohenlohe, however, records at length a
highly Interesting conversation on Far
Eastern policy which he had with lhe
Emperor Nicholas at Breslau.
"His Majesty thinks," says tho
Prince, "that Great Britain Is responsible for the whole movement In Armenia and Crete, and he said: 'I am
very fond of Great Britain and the
British, who are sympathetic with me.
but I distrust their policy.'"
To Gobble All Africa.
The Czar also told Prince Hohenlohe
that he had heard that Great Britain
had a plan to bring Afslca, from the
Cape to Egypt, Into her possession.
That was, however, in his opinion, a
long way off. The prince, In reply,
said that the British attached so much
importance to their supremacy In Africa because they sought relief In
South Africa from the fear that they
would one day lose India.
"But who Is going to take India
from them?" asked the Czar. "We are
not so stupid as to pursue such
Alluding on Jan. 7, 1900, to the prospects of the passing of the navy bill,
Prince Hohenlohe wrote:
"We must not expose ourselves to
the danger of meeting at the hands ot
Great Britain the fate of Spain at the
handB of the United States."
Unquestionably tho publication of
the memoirs was an act of Indiscretion, and It Is easy to understand the
Indignation which prompted Kaiser
Wllh-ilm to send a telegram to Prince
Philip, which Is one of the most fiery
doouments which even the Kaiser has
ever launched.
Text of Kalser'a Telegram.
The North German Gazette publishes
the text of the telegram as follows:
"Have Just read with amazement and
Indignation the published account of
the most private conversations between
your father and myself concerning
Prince Bismarck's retirement. How
was It possible that material of thla
kind could be published without having first obtained my permission T 1
must describe this proceeding aa tactless and Indiscreet In the highest degree, and as entirely Inopportune, sine*
It Is unheard of that incidents which
concern the reigning Sovereign should
be published without his consent."
The Kaiser's Indignation Is supposed
to be out of chivalrous regard for Bismarck's memory, for the memoirs disclose nothing which does not redound
splendidly to the Kaiser's honor. Thi
Kaiser very early In his reign realize*]
that It was a question of showing that
he and not Bismarck was the ruler ol
the Empire,
To Print Bismarck's Side.
It Is Interesting to learn at this Juno*
ture that the third volume of Prlno��
Bismarck's memoirs Is at present deposited In a safe in the Bank of England. They were left to Prince Herbert Bismarck with the proviso that
while the ohlef persons figuring In tha
volumes were alive they were not to
be published. On the other hand, if an
account of this Important episode Irt
modern German history waa published,
Prince Bismarck left Instructions that
the volume should Immediately be senl
to the printers. It will be Interesting
to see whether the recent publication
of Prince Hohenlohe's memoirs will be
considered by the Iron Chancellor"*

The mantle of night had scarcely
enveloped the busy western metropolis one evening early in August,
when the writer ensconced himsell
snugly in a 0. P. R. first class couch
to be whirled across tlie vast prairies
of the Canadian West to enjoy n
brief respite from tbe daily grind in
a lirst visit to that province of niotui-
hiin splendor and wondrous scenic
beauty���British Columbia. With thai
portion of tbe country traversed between Winnipeg nnd the Mountains,
most of those who chance to scan this
brief narrative, will, no doubt, be already familiar, nnd therefore il is
necessary to make but passing mention, At that time of year, however,
and in n year which for abundant
harvest bids fair to eclipse anything
on record, tbe sight of .so many immense stretches of ripening groin
wus one culculnteil to Implant u

By the time Calgary is reached,
und even before that, a well-defined
view of tbe Hockies is had, and swiftly rolling on one wakes almost as it
wero from n reverie, so rapid, if not
almost instantaneous, seems the
transition from prairie to mountain
environment, to find himself in the
very presence of those awe-inspiring
monnrchs that people as it were the
Pnoiiie province. To one who hns
spent most of his life on the pin ins
the sensation in first gazing upon
those mountain giants is certainly n
peculiar one. Tlie tourist experiences
alternately a sense of boundless admiration and it feeling of ecstutic
pleasure that seem to paralyze all
powers of speech and leave him
transfixed with astonishment. Adjectives hnve not yet been manufactured that will begin to convey nn
adequate idea of the magnificence
and majestic grandeur of those lofty
snow-capped peaks whoso towering
heights on evei'y hand seem to penetrate the very clouds and defy human estimate of size nnd altitude,
One of the most striking features in
connection with this sen of wondei
is the remarkable purity nnd transparency of water wherever seen, while
there seems a very legion of springs
bubbling lorth Ur>m the crevices
along tho9e portions of the bases of
the mountains that are visible to the
naked eye. First you will see u little stream trickling through a small
cleft in the rock to wind its almost
trackless course through a myriad of
small pines and ferns and empty itself in some mightier Hood; or, again,
you catch sight, far up tbe rocky
steep, of some rushing torrent, fed by
seemingly inexhaustible snows nnd
glaciers, leaping turbulently from
crag to crag in its impetuous haste
to lind its level in one of the many
lakes so constantly ill view. Of the
glories nnd wonders of the many
places of interest nlong the route,
fluch as Ilnnff, Laggan, Field, (!ln-
eier, etc., too much cannot be snid,
but the greatest tribute to tbo wealth
of beauty and scenery is found in the
ever-increasing numbers of tourists
from every quarter of the globe that
are everywhere seen and tax to their
limit nf capacity the resources of accommodation of the ninny superbly
appointed hotels of the C. P. R. and
fill to repletion all the privately owned hotels nlong the route throughout
the entire season, While the hikes
in the clouds, the hot springs, and
the vast glacier fields always command a protracted visit, there, are
other equally interesting sights that
should not be missed, such for instance us "Tlie Great Divide," where
n small stream is seen gently des-
eending the mountain side, nnd ere
it reaches the railroad trnck dividing
into two smnll rivulets, the one to
"well into a mighty river thnt will forever be pouring its waters into the Pacific ocean, the other to How eastward
arid northward with ever-increasing
Strength till it finds its outlet in the
Hudson's Bay, Or take, again, some
of tlie great engineering feats in the
construction of thnt necessarily most
tortuous of lines thnt runs from
mountain to sen. It ia not sufficient
that the path of the iron steed
should be hewn out of the solid
granite, but it hns nt times to be
swung across some torrent rushing
hundreds of feet lielow. One of the
most interesting nnd withal nerve*
shaking pieces of construction is that
found west of Glacier where the
course of the line in crossing a deep
valley, takes the shape of the letter
S, spanning several times, at tin
alarming altitude, the same rapid
stream, nnd ultimately leaving the
valley nt an elevation mnny feet below that al which it entered. Again,
the view nt such places as tlie Kicking Horse Canyon, with its four tunnels to be soon at one and the same
time, und Roger's Pass, with its tremendous grados, nnd glimpses of mnny
astonishing twists and turns and cur-
vos nlong the route, will all serve to
lteep green in the memory of the
traveler a trip that abounds in    un
paralleled scenery nnd thrilling fents
of engineering.
At Sicnnrous Junction a divergence
wus made to visit the far-fnjiied Oku-
nogan Valley, and little could one
realize what a glorious surprise wns in
store. This is without n doubt one
of the loveliest spots in all llritisli
Columbia, -while it is not too much to
sny there is no fruit raising men on
tlie continent tlint will compare with
it for fertility of soil, abundance ol
yield and quality of product. Moreover, there is n peculiar character of
climate here not to lie found elsewhere from const to const. Even extremely hot ns it certainly wus while
the writer wits there, there wns yet
thut dryness nnd buoynucy in the nil
that seemed to neutralize tbe intensitj
of the heat and render it even Agree-
able; nnd this climatic feature is the
more noticeable to a person accustomed to the enervating effect of hciil
in n naturally humid atmosphere.
Having never spent u winter in this
enchanting valley, wo accept the
statement that n freezing temperature is seldom experienced, nnd then
it Is only of very short, duration;
very little snow falls, while the lake,
on the placid surface of which I'm
days at a time hardly n ripple may
be seen, never freezes. What wonder, then, that so many newcomers
are establishing homes in this district where climate perlinps more

.Shortly aftei leaving tlie main line

Immense crops of grain und fruit are

to the-extensive fruit ranch 'they cnll

surroundings of the district seem to

Nature to afford one of the most
charming landscapes the eye could
wish to rest upon. But there is u
material charm to this district Hint
is daily forming a still greater attraction. Peachland, ns its name
suggests, is essentially a pencil-raising district, nnd in the production ol
this peerless of fruits it stands unrivalled in Canada today. This section, though of comparatively recent
settlement, already boasts of mnny
bearing ranches, and the writer picked fruit from trees in their fourth
year that would average at lenst three
enses of punches to the tree, nnd saw
ns much us one thousand dollars'
worth of fruit gathered from less
than two hundred five-year-old trees.

After a brief sojourn In Peachland,
we rejoined Hie main line nt Sicu-

Nature seems to have been most lav

great scenic l^eauty the charms 01
which beggar description. Tlie physical formation of tlie district is decidedly hilly but from the many eminences may be obtained some oi
tlie most delightful views of island
and sen, promontory and buy, and
hill nnd dule. Indeed, so fascinated
wus the writer with tho extreme natural beauty on every hand thnt he
was very loath to terminate an uli
too short u stay and commence the
journey homeward, to again enter the
arena of that hustling activity foi
which our prairie capital is noted.
The morning of August the sixteenth found our party trudging, grip
in hand, down to the wharf where
rodent anchor the Princess Victoria,
fresh from her Seattle trip, to mingle
with the throng of tourists homeward-bound. Tile sun's scintillating
rays, coupled with the dazzling reflection upon the water of the white-
painted hulk ol our craft, nhnost enveloped us In a flood of brilliance
that seemed to nioek at the general
reluctance to leave so charming nnd
congenial a resort ns Victoria. But
it "hod to be," and clearing port at
an early hour, we seemed to traverse
all too soon the beauties of the return voyage to Vancouver; nnd aftei
enioying a few short hours around
the city, once more were established
in one of the comfortable tourist
ouches of the O. P. R., resolved to
enjoy all the sights one might have
mitsed on the outward journey. And,
indeed, there wus much to interest
us that had before pnssed unnoticed
for it is the imposing, solemn gran-
dour and magnificence of the mountain lhnelsciipe, when seen for the
lirst time that seems to command all
one's admiration and attention nnd
to erowd out ull regard for thnt exquisite harmony of detnil so essential
to the charm nnd sublimity ol the
whole. And here let it be nddetl that
one might traverse the Rockies an
hundred times, and never cense tc
find fresh objects of interest nnd attraction in such nn oft-recurring tli
veisity of scenery. One of the man]
beauties that had a particular fascination, and which could be seen on
every hand, throughout the mountain
ride, was that remarkable densitj
and profusion of fern growth. Fernt
are ever beautiful, and certainly lose
naught of their charm of natural
grace in the midst of such loveliness
of scenic environment.
And tlie journey buck over the
prairies wns by no nienns uninteresting, for at frequent intervals throughout tbe entire distance the fnmilini
hum of the hinder wns distinctly
audible, while full mnny a mighty
field of golden grain hnd already
bowed its head before the reaper, and
now, us fur as the eye could see, thickly-clustered stooks dotted the horizon awaiting the fun of the separator.
In conclusion, the writer has
endeavored, though imperfectly,
to briefly . describes the pleasures     of      tho     trip       and      to
pay n fitting tribute to the glories
ed Nntttre'sicreations, there is a deed

be too highly extolled. Few of us,
no doubt, realize what tV colossal, Almost superhuman, undertaking it
must hnve been to penetrate such a

pnny for making possible the enjoyment of stu'li majesty of scenic
beauty, while compassing such pleasure with every comfort and convenience known to the executive and me-
ehunionl skill of modern railway genius.
