Several cabinet aud ex-cabinet ministers were  engaged in the campaign on one or  the other side.  Premier Roblin hails the result as  being, not .-.a mere party vi;.*tc*ry but  a verdict nf national import delivered  on behalf of Manitoba, by the honest  ��������� well-to-do farmers of Macdonald. If.  is a further step towards realization  of Chamberlain's dream when the  motherland and all the overseas possessions shall be joined together with  an imperial preference that will make  the British empire one and indivisible.  Hon. Robert Rogers sees in it a rebuke to the meddling ministers of  Saskatchewan and Alberta and says:  "The people of Macdonald strongly  sesented the invasion tof the constituency by the members of a government  like that, of Saskatchewan who stand  convicted of being the only government in Canada to have defied British  law and justice in order to hang on to  office. This they did by locking the  doors of polling booths to thousands  of British subjects while the same  dors were open to thousands of aliens."  While Sir Wilfi id Laurier and his  little bodyguard aie preaching--reciprocity in the east, western Canada.is  enjoyiug benefits du'ectly attributable  to the defeat of reciprocity. Take the  case of the city of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Reciprocity . would have  taken the wheat frodr western Canada  down into'the -'United-' States to be  ground into Hour in the mills of Minneapolis and elsewhere. The defeat of  reciprocity has had an exactly opposite effect. America lH'niillers are building in western Canada. Minneapolis  milling interests hav.e gone to Moose  .law. ������������������*.  IX CANADIAN KLEVATORS  Reciprocitywould have sent Canadian grain across the border over  American railways to American elevators. The defeat, of "reciprocity has  assured extensive terminal elevator  facilities to the city, of Moose Jaw. It  has brought, or is .bringing a large  American automobile and tractor industry to Moose Jaw, It has greatly  developed a meat-packing* plant in  Moose Jaw. -What is true 'of Moose  Jaw is generally true of the cities and  towns of Canada's great-  west.

Oct. 11th.���������Earl Selborne,  speaking before the National Unionist  Association at Southampton, stated  that the present fiscal policy was  forming the rich men into a plutocracy under the influence of the government. He added that the appeal of  the political parties for reform-was cm  one side prompted by patriotism and  on tin* other side by mammon and  gammon.  Lord Selborne stated that the first  task of the* next L'nionist government  should be to reform the louls. who.  he believes, are badly in need of a  cleaning up. The Liberal government,  he thinks, is living at the present  time without a constitution, and the  fact .account*! for the great revolt-  against home rule in Ulster.

The rather late date at which, unavoidably, these competitions were  announced last spring, no doubt prevented many farmers' institutes from  entering but nevertheless 200 of their  members competed.  These competitions are conducted  under the joint auspices of the Dominion and Provincial Governments.

THE SCHOOL MAGAZINE  The    School    Magazine    edited    by  Capt:  Clive Phillipps Wolley for  the  "l'j'ducation   Department of British Columbia   has resumed   publication after  the holidays, and the  latest number is  June-September.     A most interesting  feature of the  number is the Armada.  July, lfSSS,   which will   make excellent  reading  for   the   pupils in   connection  with their history lessons.    The editor-  had  evidently  been   drinking   deeply-  from 'the wells of Robert Louis Stevenson   lately   and   as   a   result   several  Stevenson   gems are strewn   here and  there through the number.     And if it-  contained   nothing  else the following  excerpts from Kipling's "The English  Flag" will make  it a wholesome number lo go into  the hands   of pupils in  the  public schools   of   the   province:  With  it the editor gives the explanation    that    "the    Wind   is   speaking  through    our    universal     interpreter  Rudyard   Kipling".      It  would   be an  excellent  idea   for   teachers  to   have  pupils memorize gems like this:'  Never was isle so little, never was sea so lone.

One  of the steamers, the Arctic, will remain in the Bay until driven out by  ice in order to demonstrate just how  late the Bay and the Straits are open  for navigation.  ENTHUSIAST  ON  THE   LINE  lion. Frank Cochrane after his canoe  trip over the route of the road, and  thence by water to Nova Scotia, has  become an enthusiast on the line. He  believes that the Hudson Bay route is  perfectly feasible, and is putting his  belief into practical elfect by the way  he is rushing the work ahead. That it  will be as valuable to the east as to  the west i.s the opinion of Mr. Cochrane, lb will furnish a cheaper route  for the manufactured products of the  Maritime Provinces and the east to  the west.

J^.jtislt   people by   his plain writ-  was not.    But  all of these  gentlemen   in^ OM   the suh.ic?ct,   and Gotian  Doyle  were more academic.than practical in  their method of treating the question  anil advanced few arguments to bear  out their claims. It all depends on  what we mean by the term "decadent"  and what we would regard as the  principal evidences of decadence. Now  from our notion as to the real meaning of the term the principal feature  which would mark decadence is a  manifest waning of national sentiment.anil we have no hesitation in expressing the belief that the past  twenty years has witnessed a marked  decline in national sentiment in Great  Britain.  No one would have the hardihood to  affirm that in the same period we  have mentioned Japan has shown decadence but the very opposite, for the  advance of a nation from the rank of  an obscure third-rate power to the  proud position ot victor over a first  rate power is ample proof of it. Now  fancy any Ja.pa.11e.se in the recent war  expressing in that country pro-Russian sentiment: and fancy also, if you  can, the people of Japan electing such  a line to public office: yet we. have  Lloyd-George and a bunch of other  more or less prominent supporters of  the present administration who were  openly pronounced pro-Boers during  the struggle against one ol' the most  despotic old rascals that have been  seen in modern times, not only elected  to high office but retained therein. If  there is any encouragement to look  for national sentiment in such -i circumstance we fail to see where il i.s.  .If national .sentiment is urged in the  present day it i.s met with the cry of  "jingo"' and that is really the most  hopeless attitude ol' the situation.  This pluming oneself with broad mi nd-  edness as an excuse for lack of the  national sentiment and patriotism  that formerly was Britain's bulwark  i.s a very strong evidence of decadence.  Napoleon said that "Britain was not  a military people but merely a martial  people," and if lie had occasion to so  correctly size up the situation in his  day, what would he not say now? It  was the national sentiment infused  into the French people in the middle  has not been silent upon it.  But the' question is, what is "the  reniedyl-' The service is becoming unpopular in Britain both in regard to  the regular troops and the militia.  Neither can we blind run- eyes to the  fact that the same may be sairl of the  colonies. Canada undertook to recruit  the garrisons at Halifix and Esqui-  nialt vacated by British regular troops  and what suecess have they made of  it? Besides, this year many of the  militia battalions went out to annual  training sadly under strength. Clearly the only bright beam on the horizon is the Boy Scout and Cadet movements. But the real remedy is conscription and the sooner the country  comes to it the better. .Field.

H. Brookes. Mr. Fitzgerald told the Gazette that they  were still waiting patiently to find  out what those people back east wanted to do or what explanation they had  to make, hut as yet they had not been  .advised of anything.  The Duke of Connaught presented  Ca.pt. G. L. Esturbrook of the steamer  Okanagan with a handsome gold  breast pin as a momento of his visit.  On the  pin is the  Garter with its  in-  moiiths ago and many7were left.-out  because they did not learii of the. matter owing to delay'of the department  in getting out the necessary notice.  It was one of the Saxon kings who  earned for himself "the title "Etheli-ed  the Unready" but B. C.'s superintendent is fast' earning a. right to the  soubriquet "Eleventh Hour Sandy."  Mr. I L. Merrill,- president of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co. came in on  Tuesday accompanied hy his son Carl  Merrill and Mr. XV. B. Dickson, vice-  president of the company. Yesterday  they went up to the mine and while  we understand it i.s the intention of  some of the party to go out on 'Friday,  it is hoped that Mr. Merrill at all  events will be. aide to prolong his stay  a few days more. The greens on the  golf links have lately been touched up  a bit and are in better condition, and  while some of the better players who  were able to give him a go, aie not  here at present, lie might find sufficient fun in 'heating "the best ball" of  .some of the lesser lights, for there is  hardly anybody left who can tackle  him single-handed.  Constable    Sproule     returned   hist  week from  Kainloops, bringing  back  most of his witnesses from the trial of  Blair and  Mc.Gillivray. both Of whom  were convicted. Two trials were necessary as the jury in the first ease disagreed.     The second jury only were  out about ten minutes  until  they returned their verdict of "guilty."   The  fact that 'the-judge' was so convinced  of their guilt that he ordered a second  trial and  that he  charged the jury so  strongly against them makes it all the  more strange  that he should let them  off on   suspended'   sentence.     In all  probability   they  will   lie   back   here  looking for the rest of the money they  failed  to get awa.y   with.     It was Mr.  Justice Morrison   who  tried  the case  and  he was also the judge  who gave  three years  to  Gunn four years ago  for stealing $20 and a  watch  from a  drunken man who was sleeping. These  chaps stole over a  $10l> from a half-  drunken   man who  was  iiwako.    The  evidence although in a great measure  circumstantial was stronger than that  secured in the Gunn case.    Altogether  there, is much dissatisfaction expressed  locally with the  leniency shown and  some   think   that   it   will   encourage  others to a like course.     For less than  that they used to suspend the prisoner  instead of the sentence.      ;  A. MEGRAW  NOTARY   PUBLIC  Conveyancer,  Real -Estate.

The secretary of the school hoard  says the school flag was worn out and  the arrangement made by the department was that they would supply the  Hag and the board should provide the  flagpole. Lit that case it is up to the  department lo send on a new (lag,  and to the hoard to get a new rope.  The Gazette will loan a Hag until a  new one is sent.

W. J. TWISS  Manager for  B.C.  A. Megraw  Local Agent  *t-.-:3>"  "Even As You and 1"  Did you over watch a fly buzzing  around a piece of fly paper? Did you  ever notice how be would light in the  midst of scores of dead flies, tear himself loose, Hy away and come back to  light in the same place?  And didn't you wonder how so small  an insect as a fly could be such a fool?  Of course you did; and you were right.  He was a fool.  But give the fly his due. He is no  bigger fool than the man who duplicates his performance day after day.  The fiy is attracted to the paper because it has a pleasant taste. He  dabbles about the edges for a time,  and finally lights in the middle of it  with all feet.  The man is attracted to his particular form of vice because it pleases  him for the time being. At first he  indulges himself moderately. Later  he lights in the mire with both feet.  Suppose it is gambling���������he begins  by putting nickels in the slot machine.  From the slot machine he progresses  to the roulette wheel or the stock  markets. Soon he has divested himself of his means. Then there are two  courses left open to him.  He may take a chance and recoup  with some one else's inaney, or he may  go to the poor house Generally he  prefers to take a chance on embezzlement, and nine times out of ten he fails  to lecover what he has lost.  (Then lie is   photographed and numbered and is heard of no more.  If a   man drinks,   he begins  moder  ately.    He  likes  the good   fellowship  and company which he finds while indulging in the flowing bowl. He continues   to drink  as a matter of  habit  until    in  the end   something happens  which gives him the excuse for plung  ing   into excesses.    He  starts  out   to  drown   his   sorrows,   and what   is the  result?  Before long  he  discovers  that the  sorrow    is   not   bothering   him   very  much, but the habit has fastened upon  him so that he cannot do without the  stimulant.  Though    he   knows   perfectly   well  that    hundreds  and   thousands   have  been   ruined in   the same   manner, he  will   indulge himself in whatever vice I  he   happens    to   have,   going   on    the!  theory, that   lie. out of all   the others, j  will escape.   _     ^ vroTICK  Of   Course it   is Unreasonable,    but il, \ **     December WV>, application will he  mail.- to'the  :.. iw,.w.   11,,.
