THE EDITH STRANDED IN  V      ������      SEYMOUR NARROWS  .The steamer Edith, of the International? Fisheries Company, went  ashore in Seymour Nairows cyi Wednesday when en route to Tacoma  fiom' the Halibut ii&lung grounds in  Dixon entrance with a load of flesh  halibut. News of the accident was  received / from Comox, thc tug Sea  Lion having reached thc coaling station with news of the stranding of  the Edith.  The Edith, with Caps. Sinclair in  chaige, was steaming through tbe  Nairows at low tide and stiuck a  leef known.to exist, in the middle nf  the narrows. Ai portion of the  ���������stern, was loin away and some damage done amidships which caused tlie  \essel to leek! badly The pumps  were immediately brought mtOj rea-  uisition and were,at work when the  lug Sea Lion, . Capt. French, came  alongside a few hours, after the  stranding. ��������� t  The Sea Lion towod the stranded  was Iccki.ivg. too hadly, to. allow fir  steamer from "the veer, but (be Edith  was leek ing too badly to allow of her  lieing .towed south or of making her  way unaided. The inrush of water  made it. impossible for the pumps to  l-cep the vessel sufficiently, free to allow her to make the nearest port,  and it was deckled to beach her.  The tug towed her to Plumper's  Bay, where she was beached to prevent, her sinking in deep water. Tern  porary "repairs will lie effected on the  the payment of a ilctot. for provisions | j^* - at piumpc'i-'s hay, and the Sea  At, the same'time he sent'a Maclean j* \vh'ich was hound from Nor-  or��������� Morverh on board, five Florida to \ Z     '        ���������..������������������'     ������������������mn������  In Vancouver-  adjust      matters.

The weather  was clear when the accident hap-  lxmcd.

Let   "me assure you. Mi.  Edifoi.  and Mr.  Aitken,' that' I hive nothing  tO'Wit'hdiaw   in "these matteis,  and  m  my  political   life little  to   legict  and JiofcK<ira; to fe.ai'. - I-dj not withdraw ^a single teim  I'have applied to  Ralph  J^mith,   Stocked,   the   Nanaimo 'Board of Tiade,  nor those local  miners who would be fools enough1 to  icst' content with an eight-hour  law  when they have a world to gain, noi  do I propose, Mi.  Editor, to modih  that eight-hour law one particle unless instructed by the men.  A.word with legard to the breaking- of this law. since I am forced to  speak by  the Ileiald.    Tt is  unfoitu-  natc  that  thc Literal   F.xecutivo   at  Ladysmith  had  to  aceitain  extent  the  handling  of  that  business.  Tarn  informed  that rt was  a member     of  bliat Executive who diew  up  the information  against.  Dunsinuii   Co ,    e  member of that Exccutne who sat  on   the   bench   and   adjudicated.   I do  not charge these people with any ulterior motives   whatsoever,  but  simply stale  what  I bclic\c  to   be the  facts.    If thc Company  contorted to  disobey  the law 1 would suggest to  Mr.   Aitken that he loast the Liberal Executive a little and give me   a  test.  Fuithei,  let   mc  infoim him   that  the     Company at Ladjsmith is nor  now breaking the law.   I am infoim-  ed   that the men go  in on the Company's  time and come out on  their  own,   breaking  the  law   fiom  one  to  fnteen minutes a day, oi  on an average  of -seven  or  eight   mmutes.      I  attached      a, penalty clause  to   that  same  oight-houv   law,   pi'ovuling that.  a miner  who broke it should  be fined  or  imprisoned, and-the riot the "Lib-'  eral pai ty and  the 1 lei aid  raised over   it   is historio.il���������Mi.   Oliver   waxing  historical, about  thc  iniquity   of  it  in  tlie  House.    This  clause     w.is  not, put  in so. much, to   punish      the  men  as  to-, protect,  them  from       the  Company   coercion,   as   every   minei  knows. I modified that, penalty tdauso'-j  to a ten  dollar line, and  iT Mr.   Aitken.     is  .   disturbed  about   the  men  breaking the  law  he can ������o down to  Ladysmilh   himself,  swear  out      another information and invoke the aid  of the all-powerful Liberal .Executive  to   help  him have  the   law  enforce!  and  the.  men  punished.  In   the meantime,  let,  me say  thai  I.havp. an'assurance from ihe gov'-erii-  mont   that   the  law will   he enforced  against  both  operator  and   men.   Wr-  must      remember ~   that   we   waited  many years  before   we got   thc  law,  and   it is jus I,  a little   too   soon,   except,  for   political   exigencies,   to   get  excited   about      its   non-observance.  The  English  factory laws were only,,  established   after   numerous   and   persistent    'prosecutions.   One prosecu-  itor,   let  me say   that  I   look hope-,  management;   let   us hope   the   government   will   make   the   next     test  case  stick',   lie  it  against   the    company  or against  the  men.

JAS.  A. SMART.  Deputy Minister of the Interior.  Pe^artmont of the Interior, ^    ^  The  wife  of a London practitioner  counts for  very little, in the sum of  his professional     success   '   ,\'*,.;'.(iiiig  to.    an      outspoken  aiticle   in   "The  World and  His Wife.")   But the wife  pf a country  of  provincial   town doctor   often   proves   his   chief  helpmeet  ���������or    his main    hindrance.     Sc/inurh  depends on the type ot woman      he  chooses.  When the new, unmarried .ortor  settles down in a country town, everybody sets to work to choose limi  a wife, 'lhc eldest daughter of Iris  senior . partner is the obvious bride  for   the young assistant.   '  He marries a $rl from a distance  ���������a gill who! has been waiting foi  him to establish himself'in a nice  little .practice before they two become one. She i settles down, therefore,, as a stranger jvi thin-the vil-  -age or provincial town gates,"'"and  she has to begin with the A.B.C. of  the business of wifehood as this applies to a doctor's bride.'.  She  has  a vague   idea  that       she  must help her husband on, hiii,  ������imi  and  experience alcne  wil   teach   her  the right way to accomplish her ambition.    In   Wie fust,enthusiasm   she  is     almost     sine     to throw herself  heait and soul int0 local affairs, and  from a'mistaken  pojicy  of  living   to  make  herself  popular   will   play  too  leart.ng apart in the social  drama-  The small' town  rises,  in   judgment  against' her.    Slie/is.  accused of   trying to  "work up ^icr hushkiud's practice."   If she  happens  to  form  areal  friendship for a family which   is   attended   by a rival   practitioner,   local  gossip has it that she is  trying   to  wheedle patients away from -another  physician for the benefit of her husband.  The  doctor's   wife  must  call   upon  all newcomers. But if she present her  card loo soon,  the fresh an ivals arc  apt to suspect  that   the pasteboard  recording   her  name,   address       and  At Home day  is left with an afterthought  of touting  for the  privilege.  of     professional  attendance  on, thc  family. If'    she delay her first call,  theie is,   of course,   the chance that  the wife of some other doctor may  establish   the  first family relations.  A child is taken suddenly ill. "Oh"  says the new coiners,   "wo  will send  for Dr.  13 .   His  wife secmod such  a nice little woman   when she called  tlie jMher day."   So that delay ���������from  the "point of view both  of the doctor  and   his   wife,  is   dangerous.    On  the other hand,  calling m  haste, lhc  doctor's  wife may rcpenl at leisure  when she  learns   that  current gossip  accredits   her  with  a suspicious  precipitancy   in  making  fn.s|  calls       on  new settlers.
