"This is ■ land." as the Psalmist
ha-said, "of   brooks   of   water,   of
fountains arid depths that spring
out of valleys and hills, a land
wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou slnilt not lack
anything in it; a land out of whose
bills thou inayest dig copper."
The   provincial   police  department bus not added to its reputa-
tatioii as ■ live body by the manlier in which they have seen fit to
prOS0Cat< the bunt for the suspected murderers of Mackintosh and
Leelaire last fall. The department
at Victoria has not grasped the situation in its true light. They have
underestimated the men whom
they were after and furthermore
made no adequate provision for
carrying on a search in a district
which presents such obstacles as
are to be found in the northern interior. The absurdity of prosecuting the work of bringing to bay
two men like Simon and Peter,
with a force of live special eon-
■table*, is like lending good
money after colinteifeit coin. It
must have cost the ratepayers ten
thousand dollars so far to prosecute tliis ill-managed expedition,
•lid not even a trace of their
whereabouts have been ascertain, d
after nine months' continuous
pilgrimages to spots where tlie fugitives have in many eases anticipated their coming.
To residents of tlie north it
would appear as though the department ha,! abandoned the
Search and ambushed itself behind
the belief that the party of eight
had succumbed to the rigors of
the |iast winter. This may lie so.
But surely some one of the eight
must have left a trace whereby
support could be given to the contention advanced by the department, In the Northwest a troupe
of twenty-live is tlie usual complement on such expeditions; not five.
And British Columbia does not afford the facility for running down
criminals possessed by the Northwest.
b, : -elf in tin- event of war. without assistance from the mother
country. He emphasised tin- fact
that the problems of Australia
.wen- not the problem of England,
•civiiig the mother country had no
Asiatic population as menacing rivals. Then, referring obviously to
the German occupation of the
New Hebrides, the premier of Australia said he wishod it to be noted
that England bad not allowed a
rival European nation to secure a
foothold close to Australia without
a warning from Australia.
While the British navy had not
been called on in a test of sea supremacy during the past century,
the speaker said this would happen in the next hundred years.
Without mentioning nations by
name he predicted pointedly that
there would be war for the supremacy of the Pacific with Germany
and Japan.
It becomes more am! more apparent each day that Kssington is
sorely in need of a dock extending
into deep water, ami conveniences
provided for boats which now have
to anchor in the stream. The volume of passengers and freight passing through this gateway is large,
anil there is no indication that it
will diminish in the near future.
Resolving the matter into dollars
and cents, the business men and
merchants are loosing annually the
price of two or three docks.
At the banquet given at Cla-
ridge's, London, by the I'ilgrin's
society in honor of the colonial
premiers who were in  London to
take part iii the colonial conference, Premier Deakin talked front
the shoulder and dealt with international problems in straightforward words that will undoubtedly
make the careful British diplomatist shudder. He said that it was a
fact that the colonial office was
further from the colonies than the
colonies were from the colonial office, and he emphasized the   claim
that the colonies should he independent nations.    He said  it   was
"refreshing" to   come   to   London
and talk with the government face
to face. He promised that Australia next year would inaugurate
a system whereby she could defend
The soleniiiy of a marriage ceremony in an Iowa town was broken
the other day when the bridegroom
suddenly demanded as part of the
obligations assumed by the bride
she must covenant to build the
early morning lire. ''Why, man
alive, that is the most astounding
innovation I ever heard suggested
as part of a marriage contract."
said the minister, when he had
sufficiently recovered to grasp the
significance of the Interruption.
The bridegroom started to argue
the question, The bride looked
abashed, The minister sharply admonished the bridegroom that he
was not ambitious to figure in a
burlesque performance, ami  that
if he desired lo wed to say so, and
if not to leave. '"Proceed, minister," said the bridegroom, and the
knot was tied.
Lord Marcus . brother to
Lord Charles Beresford. has all the
high spirits and love of practical
jokes for whicli bis family is famous. On one occasion he drove
down Rotten How for a wager.
This, of course, no one is allowed
to do, with the exception of the
Duke of St. Albans, who. it he
likes, call exercise the privilege.
However, Lord Marcus laid odds
lliat he would himself drive down
in broad daylight, and without tin
risk of police interference. He got
the wager accepted and the time
fixed for the attempt was between
11:80 and noon. The hour arrived
and many of his friends were assembled near Rotten Bow. But
nothing could be seen of the reckless sportsnian. However, at last
a watering cart was spied, driven
by a workman in a smock frock.
The cart passed slowly along the
Row. and at the end the driver
jumped down, threw off his cap
and frock and disclosed the familiar features of Lord Marcus Beresford.
Tlie recent report of a lind of
gold in tlie Yellowhcad Pass,
which received a large amount of
credence in the cities of Edmonton
and Strathcona, and which proved
to be totally fallacious, has been
overshadowed by tlie excitement
which has taken place with regard
to gold said to exist in the neighborhood of  tht Omineca   valley.
For many years the Chicotin
Indians have been finding gold in
this district and have been making
annual trips to Edmonton, where
they have sold and bartered gold.
It has been no frequent thing for
theM Indians to arrive in Edmonton witli necklaces made of nuggets. Although several parties of
adventurers and prospectors have
made trips into the district, none
of them have ever been seen again.
Secure in mountain fastnesses, the
Indians are said to have shot white
men before they have had an opportunity to discover where the
treasure was hidden.
This   year,   however,   some   Ed
monton people intend to try their
fortunes, and within a short time
two or three parties will set out
for Omineca river, Th,- district in
which the major portion of the
gold is located lies in tin- neighborhood of the Black Canyon,
which is situated between the lil'ly-
lirst and fifty-second meridian.
The above stuff is   refreshing   to
a British Columbian who knows
anything about the interior of this
province.   Tlie idea of tlie Chilcot
traveling one thousand miles to
Edmonton to barter his gold would
make a blind mule laugh The
native of tlie Anna Han reservation, who makes pilgrimages to
the Omineca, need not go to Edmonton to dispose of Ids nuggets.
Such stories are manufactured for
the other end of the Dominion and

of a telegraphic message that
should go down in history
Here is a wire fact that will appeal to most people as the climax
of quick despatch and a candid
world should clip it out and paste
it in their bible for future generations to ponder over:
Captain Gihnore some time ago
had occasion to semi a wire to
Georgetown   sawmill,  eight  miles
from Simpson The message was
sent from Kssington. After sending his   message   the   captain   left
with his tug for Georgetown.   He
called it at Simpson on the way
over. Here he met the obliging
operator who enquired of the captain if he would deliver a wire at
Georgetown, as the telephone wire
to the mill was down. The good-
natured captain assented to this
and delivered the message to the
mill manager who, after reading
the contents, exclaimed, "Why,
this is from you. You delivered
your own'telegram."
This is certainly a record in despatch, and should go down in history. We are inclined to the belief thai captain was entitled to a

to supplying one of the Indian

One result of   the   drowning   ac-

The latest about tlie SS. Northwest is that she is at the little
