Mr. Asquith, in the Barae address,
bore testimony to the care whicli
the Canadian government had shown
to protect British interests. II• said:
"Tlte agreement wan a perfectly
independent agreement, entered into between Canada and thu United

Canada of that liscal autonomy
which she has lung enjoyed and on
which nobody proposes to trespass.

and who very properly kept hia eyes

trade. I lived not say it was nut
necessary for him to urge upon his
Canadian colleagues the ueceissity
of safeguarding those interests. They
ware always most ready to accept
and anticipate, or if not to anticipate, at any rale to consider, if not
to accede to his suggestions."
This is what Lloyd George, chancellor of the exchequer, said of the

develop by the growth of trade relations with the United States. We
hold that an enlarged panada—a
Canada with a great trade of this
kind—cannot fail to be a more pros
perous Canada, a Canada which will
bea better market fur our goods, and
which will do mure trade with ourselves. Therefore, from every point
of view, we look upon tlie step
which Canada has taken as being
probably a yery good'step in our
own interests, as well as in tbe in

the Times affirms, that no one has
proved that ■ a reduction in the cost
of living will he followed by a reduction in wages. Only those people say so who are themselves contemptible enough to reduce wages
wben living expenses are lowered.
Beware of tbeir honeyed words.
Thai cheaper fund means lower
wages is disproved by the-fact that
in Germany—With the highest protective dulies in the world—the average wages are lower and the food
more costly than in free trade England. Why should this bs so if it
is not uu account of the high tariffs?
There is nu answer unless you admit that the tariffs raise the cost of
fund without raising wages. A tariff
cannot lix the price of labor.becaues
tariffs have nothing t« dp with labor. But a tariff raises tbe price of
brr-adsuiffs because' it taxes the
things yuu must buy tu eat snd
wear. That is as clear as a ruu-
ning stream.

Rideau Hall, soon to become tbe ctS-

have $60,000 spent upon it in preparation ior royal occupancy. Muny Canadians think it ought to be demolished
altogether, and dignified Government
House erected iu its stead. Rideau
Hall, originally a modest mansion on
the outskirts of Ottawa, has become
I curious and unsightly conglomeration ol buildings, each successive viceroy having added something in ao-

long prooi ol merit beiore they raise
their voices and say: "He is great."
Ihis is especially true ol the world ol
art and letters.
Yet to-day seems to be the day ol
the "young" writer in England, and
but two innings by the most effective
kind the tremendously high percentage of Welshmen among the newcomers is striking.
As it is, they have taken their turn
iu Fleet street, which first succumbed
to the Irish and then to the Scotch,
and they have invaded the realms ol
book-publishing us well.
First among the younger literary
set of the day is Alfred Noyes, who is
regarded as a "certainty," if one may
be pardoned the expression, lor the
Poet Laureateship.
Noyes is 29. He was famous at 22.
Yet he is unspoilt. An orthodox, athletic-looking young man, clean-cut,
very "Oxford, but full of the Celtic
fire. Hs writes like a Cymrn (Welshman); his fairy tales and tinkling
verse are Welsh in spirit, though he
is a big enough poet tc be international. "Drake," that rather long but
stirring epic; the ballad of the "Forty
Singing Seamen," and the very poem
he dislikes most ol all his work, the
"Barrel Organ," are known to all
readers of English verse.
Noyes has been influenced by Oxford—(he was- at Exeter College)—
but the typical young Welshman, the
golden, excitable Celt, is a product ol
Wales in education. He is far different to the genial autocrat of Oxford or the silently independent Cambridge man. He loves reading sonorous verse, is a natural orator, takes
to theatricals with a born leaning that
way. This is not one isolated example, mind you, but is typical of the
hundreds of golden youth who come
from Gwalia 1) London seeking fortune or fame.
Two years ago C. W. Miles, a young
newspaperman, founded the Welsti
Drama Society, and already connoisseurs and those who are on the
lookout for new theatrical possibilities are hoping for great things from a
very modest beginning. Mr. Miles
is now editor of a leading London
weekly, although but 27 years of age.
These are but two out of scores who
could be named in literature — all
hailing from Wales. As an indignant
aScotch writer remarked, when reference was made in his hearing to the
"rat plague" that might devastate
the metropolis: "lt is the Welsh
plague, you mean."
In art the Cymrn is coming to the
front. There are a score of Welsh
artists in London, all earning good
livings, - who are practically self-
In music the Welsh are too well
known to need further eulogy, but it
is especially in dramatic art that they
should prove interesting.
The average Welshman has a natural "artistic" sense. It is this that
has enabled David Lloyd-George to
reach the heights he has. Although
he is not a figurehead of English literature, yet he is a very notable and
a very clever man, so the writer may
be forgiven for mentioning that Mr.
Lloyd-George appears to wonderful advantage in social ceremonies. But he
should be heard speaking down in
Wales among his own people. He is
sometimes awkward in the House of
Commons, but in Wales never, for he
knows that the people, his people,
are with him, and he rises to dramatic heights that would astonish the
stranger who knew, not Wales and
its inhabitants.
His Master's Lag.
Lord Brnssey, who has announced
hi<a conversion to votes for women,
holds many unique records, one being that he is the only colonial gov-
crnor whoever sailed to his colony in
his own yacht—a fpat which he sue
ceesfully accomplished on his appointment as governor of Victoria.
After yachting, Lord Brassey's favorite recreation is cricket. On the
magnificent grounds MirrounilingNjji.
beautiful Sussex seat matches are
frequently played during the season.
Of one of these fights his lordship
told a capital slrrry. It appears that
there was a scarcity nf available talent, with the result that it was necessary lo secure one of Lord Brassey's
footmen as umpire. In due course
his lordship himself went in, and a
local bowler was put on. The second
ball he slopped with his leg, and the
cry was raised, "How's thatf"
It was the footman who had to
answer, and turning to his master, he
exclaimed, in a half-apologetic tone.
"I'm afraid I must say, 'Not st
home,' your lordship."
"Not at home?" cried Lord Brassey.
"What do you meanP"
"Well, then, if you will have it,"
the footman made answer, "I mean
you are hout."

by Using
The doctor of n century or two ago
was accustomed to free his patient of
an excess of poisoned blood by the
cruel process of bleeding.
We would not stand for that heroic
treatment today because we understand better the work of the liver and
kidneys nnd liow to awaken them to
their duty of Altering poisons from
the blood.
These are the only organs of the
body which Alter poisons trom the
blood and so cleanse the system of
the foul waste matter which causes
pains, aches and dangerous diseases,
and there is no way you can so quickly bring the liver und kidneys into
action as by using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Don't imsgine that n liquid medicine is necessary to purify the blood.
The supreme test is, "Docs the treatment awaken the action ol the liver
and invigorate the kidneyB?" Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills arc unique
in their combined action of the liver,
kidneys and bowels, and on this account wonderfully successful as a
means of purifying' the blood.
The whole digestive and excretory
system is cleansed nnd invigorated
by this treatment. The appetite is
sharpened, digestion improves, and
the tired, languid feelings of s poisoned system give way to new health and
vigor. One pill a dose. 25*cents a

Big Dsrby  Sweepstake.
This year the great Calcutta Turf
Club sweepstake on the Derby was
worth £66,006, no less than £16.666
more than the previous best attained
last year. On that occasion Captain
H. T. Rabnn, of the Indian army, drew
Lemberg, drawing ticket No. 92,211,
for wnicu he pain 14 shillings. Within half an hour of his being advised
by cable that he had drawn the favorite he had negotiated with a London
syndicate, who purchased a half
snare in the lucky ticket lor £7,._b_I0.
Captain Raban won £33,000 in all.
..early a quarter ol a million tickets
are bought annually in this, the greatest sweepstake in the world. Th*
tickets, which cost 14s. each, sr*
keenly competed for. Sometimes syndicates buy up thousands, and pool
the result. Ol the total amount subscribed the chance of the winner take*
46 per cent., the second 20 per cent.,
and the third 10 per cent. The other
starters divide 10 per cent, between
them,  while  a further  10 per cent.
f;oes to the drawers of non-starters
eft in the race at the time the sweep
closes. A final 10 per cent, goes to
defray expenses. Needless to say, romance has abounded in the history of
the sweep, which originated as a small
private affair at the Calcutta Turf
One year the six-year-old daughter
of a native signalman won £30.000.
Though the tickets are sent to the
other ends of the earth, India has been
curiously favored. A Madras bank
clerk drew Signorinetta. while O.-by

liner, and £30,000 a few years pre-

No fewer than five weeks were occupied in making the journey by ox-

"dunting" of two new freeholders at
the historical "dunting" stone on the
moor. For the first time in living
memory one ol tli" recruits was a
lady. They were seised by stalwart
men and carried lace uppermost to
the stone, and "dunted" — gently
struck against the stone—three times.
The ordeal is peculiar, and not digni-
del. Subsequently the recruits, according to custom, scattered their
bounty among an interested and,
cheering crowd of onlookers.

J. D, Honsberger, one of the
orchardists of the valley,
disposed of a portion of his
crop in .Spokane at $1.75 per
box. Both of these gentlemen
fire now opposing the reciprocity agreement. Mr. Burrell has no more apples to sell,
and is talking against the pact
because he wants oflice. He
must either oppose the agreement or retire from politics,
in which event his occupation
would be entirely gone. Wc
have been able to arrive at
any satisfactory reason, aside
from partisanship, why the
hitter gentleman should not be
enthusiastically in favor ot
larger markets, in view of thc
fact that he did so well in the
Spokane market last year.
This mystery was solved today. The gentleman stated
that lie Wits afraid that reciprocity would bring a tide of
immigration into thc country
from thc United States, antl
he wanted Canada for thc Canadians. If this is thc view
taken liy all the "small Canada" and "let well enough

election did not come on the
same date, so as to give him
an opportunity to vote against
the Victoria machine. It is
straws of kind that show the
direction ofthe wind.
Tiik majority for reciprocity
is going to be so large that we
arc almost persuaded to judge
the Tory spellbinders leniently
by admitting that their minds
are all right, and that their
tonguas .arc doing all this
lying on their own account.
A garbed copy of the free
list in the reciprocity agreement was printed in our contemporary last week. The list
is to long to print in its entirety in The Sun. Tliose desiring a copy can doubtless secure one by applying at the
Liberal committee rooms.
A vote for the Liberal candidate is a vote for progress
and a larger Canada.
Thk funds for the anti-
reciprocity campaign come
from three sources—the big
interests in Canada and the
United States and Canadian
Bankers' association.
Thk cost of producing apples in Washington i.s the
same as in British Columbia.
The olimate and soil here produces ii superior fruit to that
grown in Washington. To admit that we cannot, compete
with the Americans is a confession that we arc lacking in
ability as horticulturists or
business managers. Is there
anyone in this supine enough
to make this confession.

Qreat Essayi.t.
Carlyle " -s in his forty-ninth year
when 1 flrst knew him. His usual
working hours then were over for the
d_y between two and three o clock;
a' d he was net disinclined to see
friends that might call then, tor a
lew minutes' talk with him. just
before he set out lor his afternoon
A preferable time, however, was the
evening. If you dropped in about, or
a little after, seven o'cloc!., you lound
Carlyle and Mrs. Carlyle at tea in the
drawing-room, and were welcome to a
cup yourself, with a slice ol bread and
butter or biscuit—jagi generally on the
t.bles besides. If you were later, you
n.issed the tea, but had t_flk so long
as you choose to stay, and might see
Carlyle fill his pipe and smoke it once
or twice in the course of an evening,
and  even,  if you were  in  his good
f[races and capable of communion with
tint in that particular, be invited to
join him. His pipes, then and always, were long clays, of Glasgow
make, with green-glazed tips for the
mouth; his tobacco, if the same then
as it was afterwards, was ol a strong
•nu rather harsh kind, which he called Free-smoking York P.iver. The
fi;w lie was using—and I think he
took a new pipe every day, or perhaps oftener, from the stoek he kept
somewhere in a box—usually stood in
t'.; corner of the fir*place, within the
fender, ready for his further service;
and a half-pound tin canister of his tobacco, replenished from his larger sup-
p... which also was out ol signt somewhere, stood usually on the mantel-
pi ace, but sometimes on the table.
He was very methodical and practical it. all such matters, disliking
untidiness of any sort, and carrying
tiia love of order even intlliis smoking
arrangements. Indeed, if there were
more than one guest present, or if the
guest were a stranger, he would go out
for his smoke into the back-garden,
and return when it was over; and in
summer evenings the' back-garden was
the established smoking-plaee, and he
would take this guests or guests thither with him, providing them with
seats, or walking with tliem up and
down  the grass-plot.
I forget whether, when the smoking
wa. within doors, he had at this time
the habit—which he certainly acquired
afterwards—of reclining on the hearthrug while he smoked so that the puff.
aJiaauid ascend the chimney rather than
come into tlie rooms.
But Mrs. Carlyle, while as orderly
as himself, and keeping everything
tidy there, was tola-mat to the utmost
of whatever might be his whim in this
matter; and it was pretty to see.him
sometimes, when he waa in a pleased
humor and there was no one there tu
cause ceremony, present the pipe
gallant!/ to her own lips, for the
honor oi a consecrating whiff. This
he called "tendering her the calumet
of peace." I must have seen him do it
more than once within the lirst few
months of our acqu:iintance, for my
footing at Chcyne How had gradually
become suoh as to justily pretty frequent visits of an evening — perhaps
about once in three weeks on an average—and I was always received with
a continuation of the original kindliness.
Only on one occasion, in those early
months of our acquaintance, do 1 remember a gruftish reception from
Carlyle; and that was when one or
two menus of mine, who were on a
visit to London and had separate introductions to him, formed a party for
a joint call upon hiin in the afternoon, and persuaded me to go with
them. Mrs. Carlyle was away; he was
in a bad humor; one ol the party introduced a topic not to his taste, and
was rather combative in asserting his
own views of it; and 1 could see that
Carlyle wished all of us at Jericho.—

Expensive Music
"My daughter's piano lessons have

There is only this to tell people
who are pale, weak and bloodless.
You are pale and weak because you
haven't enough blood and you won't
be better until your blood supply is
increased. You should not lose any
time in increasing your blood supply,
for people who neglect anaemia, often slip into a deadly decline. When
you have increased your blood supply you can reasonably expect to
have a good color, to have lost that
tired, breathless feeling, to have a
good appetite and get good nourishment from your food. Now the only
quick and always effective way to get
a supply of new, rich, red blood is to
take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Every
dose helps to make new blood, and
this new blood coursing through the
veins, brings health and strength to
every organ nnd every part of the
body, making weak, ailing people,
bright, active and strong. This has
been proved in thousands of cases of
which the case of Mrs. George Clark,
Ahottsford, B. C, is a fair sample.
Mrs. Clark says: "After spending
two years and six months in a hospital training for a nurse, I began to
{nil in health, was very pale and the
least exertion would leave me out of
breath. After graduating I came to
British Columbia to take up tny profession as a private nurse. The first
case I took I found I was not able
to go o* with my work. Doctors'
tonics failed me and acting nn my
own judgment I purchased a supply
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Before I
had finished them I was really surprised at the result. The color came
hack to my face. I gained in strength
and by the time I hnd used nine
boxes I wns back at my work as a
nurse. I hnve since married, but
still have niv friendly feeling for Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills."

I Pimm,
Canadian    Manufacturer    Does    Not
Impose on the Duties ,
An erroneous impression exists in
the minds of many Western people
that the manufacturer of Canada
takes advantage of the tariff by raising his selling price hy (he full
amount of the duty, with which he
it protected from foreign competition.
Facts show that the Canadian manufacturer does not, and could not safely, do such a thing. The home manufacturer, to-day, does seven (lines as
much business in Canada as the foreign manufacturer. Would the factories of Canada he able to secure that
much more business than the keen
foreign competitor if prices were so
inflated? No they would not and
the main purpose of ihe tariff is not
to rob, hut to protect.
That  the  manufacturer  should   be
i able  tn  improve  (he  qunlity of  his
| product and at the same time reduce
I the price to the consumer may nt first
seem incredible, hut it all hinges upon    the    output.      Every    manufac-
luring operation    whether   large   or
small   involves  a  certain  amount of
I stationary overhead expense including
I such items as rent, heat, light, insur-
: ance, taxes, oflice expenses, superin-
: tendence, etc.   If these expenses have
I lo he met out of the returns from a
small outpul it follows that the pro-
portion curried by aach unit of pro-
I ductinn   will  he  comparatively  high.
But if on the other hand they can
he spread over a  lave output, then
the  proportion carried  by each  unit
of production   may   become   insigni-
ficanlly small.     Generally   speaking.
(he  larger the output  the lower the
cost  of  production  and   (he  cheaper
(he price (o (he consumer, hence the
advantage of a  tariff  which  secures
the home market    or    at    least    the
bulk  of  it to  the    home    manufacturer.
A few examples will suffice to illustrate how this works out. In 1878
a Canadian company began (he manufacture of buggies. In 1879 (hey sold
all (old nlxitit .1 buggies, for which
farmers paid them from $180 to $170
each. Last year in various kinds ot
wheeled vehicles they had an output
of 15,000 and were able to offer the
farmer for $85 a fnr better buggy (han
(he one he used lo have to pay $170
for. In 1878 the price ol sugar wns
nine and ten cents a pound retail;
today il is under five cents. The
bent hinder in 1878 sold at from $270
to $.100; (oday (he farmer gets a
lighter and more compact binder thnt
will last longer for $125. In 1878,
single reapers retailed in Ontnrio at
from SI00 to $105; today the hest
reaper retails at from $60 to $65.

How Would Tou Like
To Freeze to Death this Winter?
That may happen if you do not arrange for at least a portion of your
coal supply now.
The Miner's Strike is Still Unsettled.
Owing to the long period of idleness there is now no stock of eoal
available in the western towns.
When the cold weather begins, even
if the mines are running full blast,
the output will not be sufficient to
meet the requirements, and the car
supply will he another source of trouble  owing  to  the  very heavy  grain
crop this year. Consumers should
therefore take warning and provide
against the inevitable scarcity of
coal for the reasons stated ahove, and
if you have no money, it will pay to
borrow it and buy a few tons now.

Recent news from the medical circles ol Loudon tell of a new cure tor

hav- proven it to be a positive success. It was first intr_xiu".u. at Charing Cross Hospital and since that Hum

carbonic acid snow treatment. The
suova is prepared by allowing a Hun
spray of carbonic acid gas, liquefied
under pressure, to escape into a telt
covering supped over the top of the
iron cylinder containing the gas. Tbe
gas is deposited on the felt as a very

ol about ion degrees below zero. The
snow is then solidified into au icy

freezes the part, setting up severe local inflammation, which leads to a
breaking down and absorption ol the
frozen tissues. 'I here is very little
pain and tbe wound heals naturally
in a few days, leaving the skin practically normal.
"The carbonic acid sno•-, or rather
ice, treatment has come to stay," said

on him Iwo or three years ago. Hit

carried away a large quantity ol valu-

During that time it bas worked hard

short, and not a tithe of the mau;
pressing legislative enactments that
the country requires has lound its
way on lo the statute-book.
Mot only bave such bills as the National University bill, the Asiatic Immigration bill, the Solemnization ol

b: .1 done to equalize aud make uniform the fiscal burdens throughout the
Union. These are only a very lew ol
ti._ measures whicb are vitally needed, but which for the present have
had perforce to be shelved. The truth
is, when South Africa decided to adopt
unification as opposed to lederation,
aha. imposed an exceptionally heavy
task upon her Parliament—a task that
will take it years to complete. For
in South Africa Parliament cannot,
if it would, sit all the year round;

and professional men; hardly any of
them are men of leisure. To uiauy

insoluble education difficulty. This
compromise, which secures the equality of the two languages without infringing the right either ol the majority or of the minority, in any district, and without imperilling lhe interests of education itself, is still sub-
ject to confirmation by the various-
provincial councils, within whose jurisdiction the matter lies, but little fear
is felt in responsible quarters, on that
The spirit ol give and take which

The talk of annexation is very desultory, but it continues. We think
all Canadians should resent it. lt implies some sort of superiority on the
part of the United .States, a superiority that does not exist. It implies
that there is something in the.institutions of the United States that Canadians would like to enjoy, but are
prevented from sharing because of
their existing political condition. It
suggests that there is a prestige attaching to citizenship of the United
.States whicli Canadians do not enjoy
as citizens of the empire. It presupposes that Canadians desire theae
things and therefore in their heart of
hearts ore ready to be annexed. This
superiority, these features of United
States institutions, tbis imagined
prestige are nonexistent. There is
not an intelligent Canadian today who
believes hi* country has anything to
gain by annexation. It is surprising,
therefore, how we listen to or read
this talk about annexation witli abso
lute complacency. We treat it with
indifference. When a United States
puhlic man emits some n on pease on
tlie subject, we simply smile; when a
British paper talks about it, we attribute it to ignorance. The time has
come when wo should actively resent
any suggestion that annexation to the
United Htates is within the scope of
possibility. We are as Canadians de
sirous of seeing the most friendly relations established between the two
countries, but we propose to maintain
