Clement's Platform
A Manifesto Which Will Be Heartily Supported by All Citizens Having the Province's Welfare at Heart.
Fellow Electoral
At the request uf the Liberal Association of this riding i have consented t<i contest the coming election in
the Liberal interest. While I personally regent that the honor of carrying tiie Liberal standard to victory has
iias not fallen to other and stronger
hands than mine, it is with no misgiving as to the result ^hat 1 enter
ou the campaign. I inn in this battle
to win, if by strenuous straightforward lighting any {Hilitieal battle can
lie won. I believe it can. What is
needed is united ell'ort on the part of
the Liberals and all others who desire
to see reform in the government, of
this province.
The condition of the province lias
liecome intoltrable. Blessed by Provi-
vence with vast stores of wealth in
mines, forests, agricultural lands and
fisheries, llritish Columbia has had its
very good turned to evil by a long
> cries of | er .onal sectional, clique governments of men who have exploited
t ie people's property for private gain.
We have a population of 177,000—
men, women anil children, Indians
and Orientals—and a public debt of
*G,.')00,000, representing *35 per
head, or $ lift at. least for each adult
man in the province. The average
cost of government in the other provinces of Canada is about S '-'per heat!
per annum; with us it is seven times
greater, or $14 28 per head. In
salajies alone we pay more than $'2 a
lead, or over $370,000.
Every year   we  spend  more than
1-A9" h come, Last yeaivwewent further
Iffito  debt to tne:4ltfieof 178.0,000;
'[Bud Mr. Carter-Cotton, a former Con-
' strvative    finitusp .   Minister,    says
that 'if   the  a*i«uiits of-the last four
years were properly   investigated   it
will lie found in that  short   time   we
have spent t6,0qf),<100 more than  our
revenue from -all sources.
The present premier was a member
of the assembly . during those four
years; and he litis never protested
against tiie prodigal scale of ex[s'iidi-
Aire, on the contrary, the very assets
from which a fund might be derived
to meet the coste of government have
been wasted. As a minister of the
Crown, Mr. McBride was a party te
the orders in council granting large
areas of valuable coal and petroleum
lauds in Southeast Kootenay to thc 0.
P. It.--a fraud upon the legislature,
which was prevented, not by Mr. Mc
(hide, but by the watchful zeal of a
Liberal member. The excuse given by
Mr. McBride for his official act in
agreeing to the grunts shows that he
is utterly unworthy.. to be trusted
with the care of the people's property.
He took iho word of a colleague that
it was all right. What guarantee
have we that another colleague will
not again hypnotize Mr. McBride into
giving away further tracts of the
public domain!
But when bona lido locators comply
witli the law of the province, stake
coal lands according to Ihw, and tender the price fixed by law, Mr. Mo-
Bride refuses to grant the licences
which the law says shall be granted to
those who have followed   the  require
should bear their share of the public
burdens in proportion te the net output.
3. No further aid in land or money
should be given by this province to
transcontinental railway projects.
Fullest liberty should be given to the
V', V.ifc E. Railway company te complete the construction of their line.

By a piece of trickery quite iu keep

the V., V. &. E. to build their contemplated line throught 11 the Pacific
coast. In reference Ixi the North-and-
South lines through the valleys of
British Columbia, I should support

idea of leasing the completed lines as

and still is associated, the honorable
premier has cut short the campaign.

ample of obedienei to its own law
If under our statutes individuals have
mon country."   As  the candidate   uf a-quired right iu the  public   rJomain,
the   Liberal   party, I respectfully ask
your votes and your Influence te elect
me iM-cause I believe that neither at
the hands ofthe McBride government,
nor at the hands of ihi'or./ing Socialists, will any practical business-like
improvement u(>on the past misdoings take place.
Tiie Tiberals have hod no opportunity to show their mettle in the political
arena of his province. Hut the administration of public affairs by a Liberal government at Ottawa since 18%
is a striking example of what Liberalism in action means. National
unity from ocean to ocean; a loyalty
to Hritish connection evidenced in
deed instead of mere" lip-loyalty; a system of taxation etjual in Incidence and
in protection to home industry instead
of a system of government aid to favored manufacturers; a determined stand
against the Oriental deluge of low-
standard civilization; an honest effort
to bring capital and labor into hur
uionious working for tli.t good of all;
energetic workjtoward peoplingthewest
and toward providing adequate transport facilities; all these and whatever
else tends to the betterment of the
Canadian people are the planks of the
Liberal platform in the federal field.
The same broad ideas dominate the
Liberals of Hritish Columbia.
I am in hearty accord with the plat-
ft rm and manifesto of the Lilmral
party in the province. When elected,
I shall endeavor to put the principles
set forth in them into practice. I
shall particularly support the following principles as of immediate interest
to this riding:
1. The people's property, whether
land, timber, minerals or the fisheries,
should be administered for the benefit of the whole people, with a view to
lessening the huge burden of debt and
taxation now resting on us. Only
those who in good faith will utilize our
public property in forwarding settle*
ment and developing our natural industries should be allowed to acquire
an interest in any part of the public
domain.
The mining laws should be
amended and simplified after a careful
enquiry through a competent commission. Then tinkering with,them should
cease. In the develmeut stage there
should  l>e   no   taxation of miners or
such   rights  should be at once trans
ferred to them.
The course of the government ii:
reference to the eoal lands of Kootenay shows that in their opinion we
are governed, not be law, but by their
whim as influenced by t'le count of
voters' noses,
I have the honor te be your most
obedient servant,

At the time of the publication of
the History of Canada, written by
Mr. \V. IL P. Clement, and now in
use all over Canada, the Montreal
Witness thus referred to it: "The
prizes offered in the Dominion history eoinpetion have been awarded,
und the names of thc successful
competitors are published today.
William H. P. (lenient, Esq., obtains the first prize, which consists
of a royalty of 10 per cent on the re
tiil price of all books sold, and is
being estimated at |25,Q00 to $40,-
000. The new text book written by
Mr. Clement is a masterly statement
in concise form of our history. Mr.
Clement is the author of 'The Law
of the Candian Constitution,' which
the late Sir John Thompson characterised as 'by far the best work
that has yet appeared on thc subject1 Ft has been adopted on the
curricula of Toronto University, the
Law School and Trinity University

of which it treats.'}

The following editorial recently ,
ip pea rod in the Philadelphia Satur-1
day Evening Post, the leading weekly magazine of thc United States,
and shows thc good opinion our
neighbors have of Canada and the
Canadians;
A new nation is being born under
ur very face and  eyes.    Things  ate
aping faster in Canada than few of
,s here in the United States realize;
indeed faster than Canada herself
alizes. Her statesmen are embarrassed, perplexed, bewildered with the
unparalleled development of the great
Northwest.
A nd the West has quickened the
Bast. Ottawa is electric with the
new commercial and political life.
That was a great day for Canada
last April when Mr. Fielding, tie
Minister of Finance, in his speech before the Canadian Parliament, recommended a retaliatory tax on German
st el.
Ln the Quebec Daily Telegraph a
leading editorial has this most senten
tious heading: "A Nation to the Na-
t ons." The editorial went on to say:
"It is an intimation to the world of
the place Canada intends to occcupy,
From it Great Britain will learn the
robust independence of the child it has
fostered and developed.
"Canada bus (Lute emphatically
than ever before declared her intention and ability of standing for wh it
are deemed her rights of looking out
for herself in the struggle of a nation,
r-ther t a i»a colony."
This striking and it would seem almost startling editorial was i eo aived
without much surprise, and most assuredly without adverse comment anywhere—either in Canada East or
West
On tho contrary, this patriotic national sentiment is iu that clear, invigorating, northern air! The very
word "colony" is welcome no longer.
The Son has grown large and strong/
Canada loves England, but there are
big men up there, and since the days
of the confederation the young Norther i giant has been putting on strength.
And this is largely due te the discovery and phenomenal development of
the Northwest.
Winn'peg, the Chicago of the Canadian West, has sprung into a centre
of gnat power, geographically, commercially, iHjIitically. Thirty years
ago there Merc some three hundred
people there, Canadians and half
breeds. Now it is a rapidly growing
city of 60,000 Inhabitants, fine street*,
broad avenues, l>cautiful bank buildings, large stores, conveiglug and irradiating railways.
This Northwest is rapidly filling up
with a new life from Eastern Canada
and from our own Northwest. Farm-
OTS in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota and the Dakotas are selling
t hei.i valuable farms and are moving,
with their families and farming implements and live stock, up into this
great harvest-field, and arc receiving a
most generous welcome. American
capital has gone in there and bought
up great tracts of lands, and large
profits have already been made by the
pushing, wide-awake Americans, But
thc bravo and enterprising young men
of Western Canada show a most noble
and generous spirit. It is truly wonderful. They see our |>cople making
millions of money there in the last
three years, but they say: "We welcome you; we need your money; we
need your enterprise, your daring,
your experience; come in and help us
develop this great Empire!" No one
in all the broad world, England not
exeepjed, receives the broad and generous welcome from the Canadian
Northwest that is so cheerfully and
Unselfishly given the American farmer,
merchant) manufacturer and capitalist.
They wish us to settle down and li\o
witli them and work with them. But
to the capitalist, or land speculator,
many in this great Northwest, one big
em nigh and broad enough to say:
' Jven though you come in to skim off
the cream, and then perhaps leave us,
still we welcome you. You are crowding our lands into the market; you are
feeding the stream of immigration
pouring in upon us; you are helping
te develop our country. We welcome
you." It is a wonderful spirit and
courage, tins, and Western Canada is
charged full of a great New World
eleetric life.
James J. Hill said recently: "There
is no good reason why Canada may not
have a population of 50,000,000 within the next fifty years. There are
many in Canada who believe it. It is
I o^ible. England believes it. Many
of our own far-seeing men believe it.
The Hon. James A. Smart, Deputy
Minister of the Interior, and the most
able head of this department, in th-;
absence of the Minister, the Hon. Mr.
Siften, in his recent report before his
committee stated that the immigration
of the last eleven months has been the
greatest by far in the history of Canada—something like. 100,000.
The stream has only begun to flow.
The great wheat belt, 1500 miles long
ami some 40(1 miles wide, will he
plowed and bail wtpd, nil of it. Manitoba alone has Uo,U00,000 acres of
arable land. Only about 3,000,000
acres have been plowed. There is a
great future for Canada. She knows
it; feels it; throbs with it, east and
west, and she is willing to share it
with our own Northwest! The international boundary line is not a ] hysi-
cal barrier, nor a commercial one, nor
seriously a political one.

Last  Friday night the Liberals
of Grand Forks riding placed a candidate in the field to take the place
of - Neil  McCallum, who was compelled for private reasons  to  retire
from the contest.   The meeting, at
which  Mr. W.  H. P. Clement was
unanimously nominated,  was   very
harmonnious and enthusiastic—two
elements that presage a grand Liberal   victory  on the  3rd of next
month.   Mr. Clement accepted the
nomination.     His  candidature  is
heartily endorsed by the three Liberal associations in this riding.    It
is   universally   admitted  that   no
stronger or more capable man could
have selected.   Mr. Clement will be
an   influential  member of the next
house,   He is a clean, hard fighter,
and a man of much more than ordinary ability.   He is an experienced
politician and has proved himself a
ca)iable administrator.   He was for
some time legal adviser to the  Yukon government and a member of
the  executive council, virtually attorney general of the territory, and
is widely known as n writer, his book
on the Canadian constitution being
the standard on that subject, placing
its author in the very front rank of
authorities  on   constitutional  law
and history in   Canada.   His history  of  Canada   is the authorized
text  book all over the   Dominiou.
Mr. Clement has been for the past
three years a resident of this  city,
and has interested himself largely in
all matters aficcting the district. He
is a inenihcr of the executive of the
Interior District Liberal Council and
president of the Lihernl association
of thc riding.   It is not too much to
Bay that not only (Irand Forks hut
the whole interior is to be congratulated on tbe hright prospect of Mr.
Clement's election to the house.
The regular weekly meeting of the
city council was held in thc council
chamber last night. Those present
were: Mayoi Burrell, Aid. Gaw, Martin, McCallum and McLellan.
Mayor Burrell reported having
met the members of the Chambers
of Commerce of the Empire on the
arrival of their special train. The
mayor stated that they expressed
themselves ns delighted with thc
:ity, its environments and the great
Granby smelter.
An application wns read from John
A. Manly asking for n reduction of
taxes on the Ynle hotel. The matter was discussed nt length, and
finally dismissed.
The water nnd light commissioner
was instructed to shut off water and
light from parties wfio are nn unreasonable time in arrears.
A short discussion took place on
the sidewalk and dog by-law, which
was up for consideration.
An application wns made for an
arc light at Jeff Davis' corner, but
os there are already incandescent
lights in tnat part of the city, the
council considered it was not more
necessary there than in other parts
of the city.
The usual number of bills were
•dered paid.

madoJio enlargement sovoml months
ago, and with that idea in view ordered a new printing press from a
Toronto firm, hut owing to tho negligence of the party entrusted with
the shipment of the machine it did
not arrive here until a few days ago.
At the time we blamed the 0. P. R.
for the delay, us we supposed   they
had sidetracked it somewhere and
hud forgotten all about it.    But subsequent events proved the facts to lie
otherwise, and we therefore desire to
state that C. P. R. company was entirely blameless for the delay; on thc
contrary, the press reached   us as
quickly as could be expected after it
had been shipped.

Tragedies of the Arctic
HN   extraordinary coincidence  ha*
■been developed by a recent Arotla
tragedy  brought  about   by   tM
expedition  of   the  Duke  of  the
Abruzzl.
When this navigator went on hli
Journey to the North Pole he took with
him among others Lieutenant Querinl,
a Venetian gentleman of an old and
noble family. His work over, the Duke
returned, but the lieutenant w:hi not
with him, for he had lost his Ufa
through an accident In the Arctic regions.
Now, at the very time when this accident occurred a professor In the technical school in Trieste, while rummaging in the archives of that city, discovered a manuscript bearing the data
1601, and containing an account of a
Journey made by one Pletro Querinl, In
1431, to the Arctic regions. Querinl li
not a common name, and a little Investigation showed that Pletro Querinl
wan a direct ancestor of the other Pletro Querinl who lost his. life In the Arctic seas a few months ago.
"Querinl," says the old manuscript,
"sailed from Ciindla for Flanders on
board a .vessel loaded with merchan-
dtseand precious stones. When he arrived In Flanders he sold his cargo aud
started for the Arctic regions. A atorm
forced him to abandon his ship and to
take refuge with his crew in two barks.
The wind then carried them to the
coast of Norway, but on January 9,
1432, Querinl was ngaln shipwrecked
near the Lofodcn Islands in seventy
degrees north latitude, and almost all
his companions were drowned."
For some time It was supposed that
he, too, had been drowned, but in January, 1433, he appeared In Venice with
ten companions, the only survivors of
his original crew of seventy-eight men.
It seems that he succeeded In gaining
the shore nfier the others had been
drowned,, nnd then slowly made his
Way home through Denmark and Germany.
"Although these two Pletro Quer-
Inis," says a French writer, "are separated from each other by five centuries,
we And the same destiny at work In the
case of each." And he continues, with
a dash of playfulness: "Is it not possible that the adventurer of the fifteenth century, desiring to enjoy once
more the exciting' days of Ills youth,
actually became Incarnated as a hero
of the twentieth century?"
New York's Fussy Society.
LLOWINO for a certain difference in the degree of barbarism," says Sydney Brooks In
"Harper's Magonlne," "Home
In lis decline could alone furnish n
parallel lo New York's Four Hundred.
Thc American aristocracy lias no equal
fn lOurope for ability lo turn the simplest sort of diversion into a function,
and every function Into a ceremony. It
Is not of them I write, though tlielr
passion for incongruous, artificialities'
and Hie glare In which they live have
Infected nil strata. An exasperated
ISngllehman once described the social
atmosphere of Manhattan Island as
rather   fussy,'   hut   that   was  only   In
comparison with the Bngltsh way of
doing things. The charm of London
hospitality Is that there Is never tho
slightest strain put upon either host or
guest. The American hostess, like tho
French hostess, feels that she must bo
continually 'entertaining' her guest;
she considers it a reflection on tier hospitality if the guest Is left a moment
alone: she looks upon It ns her duty to
be continually providing fresh amusements, nnd Is constantly troubled by
doubts as to whether the visitor Is really 'enjoying' himself. That Is one of
the reasons why Americans, after tho
pampering they get at home, are npt to
feel themselves neglected In London,
and left out In the cold."
.,jj.
A Cheerful Propm.cy.
TpHJE animal u.ui cannot be trained
J to keep IU wits about It on tha
approach vt a motor car must
disappear. Its Btupldlty, filth,
sloti, fear of ererything and useless
size prove to tho most conservative
that It must go. The horse that will
not stand a molor car may be the delight of Its o\vr.er, but It Is a publlo
nuisance ami a public danger, and
ought to be shot llko a mad dog. Horsemen have no right to bring unmanageable brutes Into th* public highways,
to the public danger, and It Is time this
elementnry Justice should be recognized. The motor Is going to become
the means of locomotion for all light
transit, and by tbe ordinary roads as
they exist to-day. It Is the pedestrian
and the horse that have got to give
woy. The horse In tralUc, If he chooses
to bolt, is uncontrollable. The motor,
from the lightest bicycle to the henv-
lost car, Is perfectly controllable, occupies half the space, nnd travels now
through the congested streets at double
and treble the speed of any horse-
drawn vehicle. The only thing the two
have In common 1b that at times they
both refuse to go.
The unobservant talk of the accidents
that would happen. The accidents will
be a grent deal fewer in number. A
conclusive proof of this, to any one
with any sense, le the fact that in tha
thousand miles tour no one, I believe,
was hurt, though the ronds were lined
with spectators. In the race from Paris
to Berlin, three d:iys, nnd the tour
around Italy, ten days, but two children were killed, the result entirely of
their own carelessness or that of their
parents. Suppose, for a moment, that
in France a hundred and ten teams, or,
rather, droves, of horses—there were a
hundred nnd ten motors—ranging from
fifty In a bunch down to two—this was
the horse-power of the machines—had
been let loose and driven at top speed
for three days on the public roads.
Will anyone tell me that thousands of
people would not hare been killed, that
hundreds of drivers would not hava
lost their lives as w*ll? But that would
have been described as sport. . . ,
The only danger to be feared from the
motor car Is to Its own driver, the only
drawback Is Its own Imperfection.
Read the reports <4 automobile accidents: proportionately, these are far
fewer thnn from any other form of locomotion, and in nine cases out of ten
the accident occurs to the driver or the
occupant of the car; in the tenth case
It is owing to the stupidity or the care-
leRsneaH of the person who gets In
front. The average pedestrian has simply got to learn to keep out of the way,
and that Is the end of It.—Joseph Pen-
nell In "Contemporary Review."
'TAXATIONJIF RAILWAYS
At a meeting of tin- Grand Forka
Liberal Association the following
resolution, moved by L. 1J- Eckstein
and seconded by V. T, McCallum,
was passed;
Whereas, Tho system uf taxation
within British Columbia under exist-
1 ing laws uml methods is Inetjuitablo.
inasmuch as discrimination is made
■ by statute and otherwise in favor "!'
| railway and other rich corporations
i und individuals: and
Whereas, It is enacted by Section
4. of the llailway Assessment Act,
passed in theyear 1804, as follows;
"The land occupied and claimed as the
I right of way tor railroads by railway
i companies, and other lauds occupied
; bv the railway company tor station or
engine house, or freight .sheds or other
buildings connected with the actual
operation ofthe railway, including the
rolling stock, .shull be assessed as a
whole at the rate of three thousand
dollars per mile of truck (including
sidings) of the railway company situate within the province, and within
the Lmits of any incorporated municipality ;" and
VVl e-.'eas, It is further enacted hy
statute: "That no municipality incor-
pi rated after the '11st of February,
! 189S, shall assess any land occupied
land claimed by a railway company as
.the lalrood right-of way, or occupied
for railroad stations, engine houses,
f.e'ght sheds, railroad buildings, sict-
| ings, or any of the personalty, property of the eompany, including stuck
or equipment, and the same shall not
Ihe subject to municipal taxation;" and
Whereas, This total exemption
from taxation of railway property
withi i   municipalities,   and     almost
No Breach of Discipline.
THE colonel was entertaining soma
of his friends with stories of
■army life, and the talk turned to
the Inflexibility of orders. That
reminded the colonel of Tim Murphy'i
case.
Murphy had enlisted In the cavalry
service, although he had never been
on a horse in his lire. He wns taken
jut for drill with other raw rmrulta under command of a sergeant, and, aa
luck would have it, secured one of the
rt*orst buckers in the whole troop.
"Now, my men," said the sergeant in
addressing them, "no one Is allowed to
dismount without orders from a superior officer.   Remember that*'
Tim was no sooner In the saddle thaw
he was hurled head over heels throuyU
the air, and came down so hard th%*
the breath was almost knocked out of
him.
"Murphy," shouted the sergeant,
when he discovered the man spread out
on. the ground, "you dismounted!"
"I did."
"Did you hare orders?"
"I did."
"From headquarters, I tuppuAuY"
will, a sneer.
"No, from hindquarters."
"Take hlin to the guard-house!" ordered tha sergeant — Detroit "Fret

writer, Hugh McHugh, ,w-ho is disputing with Ctaorge Ade the right to th*
particular niche left vacant by the
death of the entertaining "Billy Baxter." John Henry Is a sporty raan-
about-town, the very antithesis o!
Richard Harding Davis's refined Van
Bibber. From his account of his experiences at the races with his best
girl, we quote a few characteristic extract!:
When we got to the track they were
bunching the bones for the first race,
so I told Clara Jane I thought I'd crawl
down to the ring and plaster two or
three thousand around among the
needy.
Two or three thousand, and me with
nothing but a five-spot In. my jeans,
and the return ticket money in that!
"Sure!" I said; "I've got a pipe!"

the betting ring and smoke It thertl" 1
said, and we parted good frlendi,
(In front of the band stand he mi* a
number of friends ready to give 'Attn
tips on the winners:
Every Breezy Boy I met had a different hunch, and they called me into the
wharf and unloaded.
I flgrurod it out that If I had bet flvo
dollars on each good thing they gave
me I would have lost four hundred
thousand dollars.
Then I  ducked under, sopped up a
stein of root beer, and climbed up again
to the hurricane deck.
"Did you het?" enquired Clara Jane.
"Only seven hundred and thirty dollars," I said; "a mere bag o' shells."
I leave a call for 7.30 every morning;,
and I suppose that's the reason I was
so swift with the figures.
"My! what a lot of money!" said the
Fair One; "do point out the horse you
bet on! I shall be awfully Interested
In this race!"
(John Henry picked out a horse at
random, declaring that the only way It
could lose "was for some sore-head to
get out and turn the track around.")
Sure enough, the favorite galloped
Into port and dropped anchor six hours
ahead of the other clams.
I win over two thousand two hundred
dollars—conversation money—and Bonnie Brlghteyea was tn a frenzy of delight   .   .  .
I had a nervous chill for fear she'd
declare herself In on the rake-off.
But she didn't, so I excused myself
and backed down the ladder to cash in.
(Still the wary John Henry listened
to the tips and refrained from betting.)
When I got back to the stand I had
a preoccupied air. The five-spot In my
jeans was crawling around and begging
for a change of scene.
When Clara Jane asked me how
much I had bet on the race just aibout
to start, I could only think of nine hundred dollars.
When she    wanted to know   which
horse  I  polnaed my  finger   at  every
toad on the track, and said: "That one,
ever there!"
It won.
At the end of the third race I was
(10.213 to the good.
Clara Jane had It down In black and
white on the back of an envelope, la
figures that couldn't lie.
(John Henry remarked that wfcea
Clara begged him to be content with
his winnings and not bet any mors, he
promised, "but she didn't notice that I
had my fingers erossfd.")
I simply had to hare a roll to flash oa
the way home, so I took my lonely T
and went out Into the Promised Land
after the nuggets Maddy had put m*
wise to.   .   .   .
(Pretty Boy was his choice, despite
the fact that the bookmakers told him
he had made a mistake.)
When the horses got away with Pretty Boy tn front I started In to stand on
my head, but changed my mind and
swallowed half the programme.
Pretty Boy at the quarter! Me for
Rector's till they put the shutters upt
Pretty Boy at the half! Me down to
Tiffany's In the morning dragging
tiaras away In a di  yl
Pretty Boy at the three-quarter pole!
He doing the free-library gag all over
the place!
But hist as they 'me In the stretch
Pretty Boy forgot something and went
back after It
The roach quit m- cold at the very
door of the safety ri-poslt vaults.
(Of course Clara Jnne never guessed
his plight, for he "rushed down among
the ramblers and made o swift touch
for the price of a couple < f rides home,'1
and on the way buck promised Clara
Jane that he would be awfully careful
of his 119,218—conversation money.)

Science and thc stern reality of lift
are bound to destroy the novel. It la
out of harmony with thc tcloiuiflc and
materialistic spirit of the age. Tha
more Industrial and strenuous a nattoo
is, the fewer novelists has she; only
the backward, the passive, the visionary people,! produce great novelists.
The fable, thn national tale, the folksong, have dle.l. Why not the novelT
It, too, Is subject to the law of evolution. It has seen Its acme, Its highest
point, and Is on the decline.—"Novoye

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of tbe work and promptness in

time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
