MUX. W. 3. LAMJilCK     "���"���'  .. apresldenft of the loci A Trades and Labor  Council, occupied the ohalr.     In opening, he said that  the .Provincial Progressive Party was novv an established  Organisation In British 'Columbia. This  meeting had been twilled  to form    a  branch of the same.     "It's time tlie  working men of this.city took political  action, if they ever expected to accom-  flUsli anything," he said. He then rend  the. platform, which-was received, with  applause.     "We've met here to adopt  this platform," he ��� concluded.  MU. J. H. WATSOX  ��ild thut it hud fallen to his lot to propose the flrst resolution.     For a long  time past workingmen had been using  tlbelr. ballots on ..election day to put In  ollice men who promised to legislate f or  ���Chein, but who failed to carry out their  ���nnte-electlon pliidges, 'Instead of placing  .men at the, head ot the polls who were  ��� directly In sympathy with the reform  ; movement.      Recently    a    convention  was *ield at Kamloops, when delegates  irom all parts of the province, representing all the different reform bodies,  decided upon taking political action. He  never met a more enthusiastic or Intelligent body of men.     They were dead  in  earnest and   honestly   workedi  for  better legislation.     The platform was  , not as radical as some men would like  It to be,  yet it was far in, advance  of   tlie platform   of the   old parties.  When the working men of New Zealand  flrst formed a political party Wiey only  returned seven.men, but at the second  election   they  returned  27 candidates.  ���The     Progressives     have     organised  branches all through   the '.'.Kootenays  and wo must follow suit.     'While we  want men.In the party, yet wc want  only those who will stand  by it, especially ohy.election'duy.',.   (Applause.)  Aa he had.been appointed by the convention to form this branch, he moved the following resolution:  "Whereas���The    lime   Ihas    arrived  when the workers of this province and  all Interested Jn the better government  cf the same, must make a. y.-termlnedI  ". effort to get elected to the legislature  of British Columbia men.wlio belong to  their own r*yiks ami in full sympathy  willlt the labor  movement:   and  .   "Whereas���With this end  In  view a  convention  of .representative  working  men was held .recently at Kamloops, at  .-'which the Provincial Progressive Party was formod;    which   should   have  "branches in "every city In ��� Britlsfh Col-1  um!>ia with a view to camming men to |  the local  house lit "^Victoria  to  work  .along the lines laid down in ;theplnt-  tfonm1 just read; therefore, be it  "Itesolved���That we in .meeting assembled, form a branch of the party to  Sbe known as the Vancouver branch of  t'he Provincial Progressive Party, and  forthwith proceed to elect ofllcers and  commit tees far the working of the  same, and drawing up .by-laws; and  Ibe It further  llcsolved���That we hereby Invite thc  business and professional .men and nil  working men of the city, (Irrespective of  creed or color, to become inem'bers and  active workers of .this pairtyl"  MR. T. H. CROSS  ���oconded the resolution.   He said that  lie was fortunate in being a delegate to  thc Kamloops convention.      He   was  very much  Impressed with  the "oneness" of purpose of the delegates who  Attended.   He came away feeling that  they had done something towards un-  " iltlng the  workers of the province  to  take political action.   He culled attention to the marked contrast in t'he proceedings at the convention to those of  the I1U8C0 at Victoria.    "You reinein-  Iber Uiose fellows at Victoria were your  .humble servants Just before  the last  election, but now they are not so prac-  ���Ocal," said' the speaker. <   ���  X. THE PRESIDBOT.  Chris. Foley was 'greeted wltflil.  applause.    After making a few prelJmJn-  I future would be deplorable to contemplate. It was only by referring to the  past that the ftiture could be Judged.  He differed a little with Uh'e preamble  of the platform, lnasimidli as he considered it somewhat premature. Workingmen and others were mot prepared  for It. Later on, however, It would be  proper, when the party *Vas thoroughly j  formed. One great question confront  lng the Industrial masses was that of  ���note Land Monopoly  curse.     (Applause.)    These large land  holdings must be broken up. How could  thi3 be accomplished?     The late Mr.  George had submitted a plan  as  to  how this could lie carried out.   -In this  respect ho was aVgreat benefactor to  the people.    All agreed Vtiai land monopoly  was  a* curse. '   Then  why  not  break It up?    Land monopoly had been  a  curse  In  every  age  and  in  every  country.   uThe downfall of our great  ancient powers could be traced to this  pernicious system  of  land  monopoly.  When the land tif Sparta fell into the  hands tot some 700 of Its Inhabitants, It  resulted In a. division of two classes of  socltfty��� tiiie aristocratic and the landless serf.     The result was the downfall'  ot that great republic. At a later date  we find Rome engaged In Its Hannibal  wars, the result being that the people  were driven  front' the plains;  and  a  monopoly was created' similar  to the  one  Now In Ireland.  Rome,  once  the mistress of empires,  wns now a country of banana iiedlais  and organ grinders.     The speaker referred ..to', tho vast tracts of land that  were held 1n England by the rich for  hunting grounds, while millions of people there were landless and homeless.  Tlite man who will travel 150 or 200 miles  to.take part In u fox-burnt.'wno not em  whit more enlightened than the old Roman aristocrat who attended thc amphitheatre'ito see human blood shed for  his 'amusement, or the Spaniard,' wiho  goes to see the bull fight.    (Applause.)  The vast estates held by the Duke o:  Westminster were   still   being   made  niore valuable.     Every brick and stone  laid, every hall driven, an'd every child  born  upon "that vast   estate   added  1 wealth to ithe family's colossal fortune.  Por the llast GOO years  Thc Old Family  have not earned   themselves a penny  yet they live In (influence and; plenty  through the monopoly of land.     Any  man wlio.upheld this system has noi  yet  freed  lmisolf  from   the  Ignorance  of barbarism.     Tills province Import;  annually some $2,500,000    In food  products.     This can only   be reduced by  breaking,up 'the'land monopoly here.  (Applause.)    Mr. Foley had been- trav-  I elllng through the Interior.     The East  Kootenay, ''which district was 200 miles  long by 25 wide, he ihkid found a climate similar to that of California. Its  vast valleys .'and rolling prairies were  very fertile; its lakes and forests were  enchanting,    the   former   being well-  stocked with flsh and the latter with  game and   ruel���enough and toy spare  for millions of people.    Yet you have  all Uhiis beautiful country held by speculators.  This Is a Crime  against our country.    "It is your plain  duty,"  said  the speaker,   "to compel  these land  hogs lo let go."     In  the  Okamigun   Valley,   running  100  miles  from the Slcdmous   Narrows   to the  boundary line, a few, years ago people  by the  hundreds rushed  In,  thinking  that the land Wogs would let go, but  they didn't.    Clrculam were sent out  broadcast, displaying the splendid   Inducements held out to settlers. A number of nice little villages Bprang up all  over Mils district, but the settlers were  poor and had nothing to support tlicne  towns.    The land was not available to  the people, so ; deserted villages could  be seen    dotted all   over tWIs   most  fertile  region.     In  Vernon,  one-hulf  the land Is  a month. He did not altogether blame  the noble lord for thla state of affairs,  because It was his agents who did the  business. (Applause.) There was another valley ln> tMs district, 40 miles  long by 10 miles Vide, which ran to  the'llne. This would be a good cattle  country. We And here bunch grass In  abundance, but It Is all held by the  colossal land igrnJbber. There Isllftle  to Indicated that this place was  ; Ever Inhabited.  It Is disgraceful for one man to be allowed to hold1 It.     Referring to 'he  Kelowna district the speaker said that  the land was   divided off   Into little  farms and vividly portrayed the marked  difference.     Here the situation under  went an entire transformation.,There  were a number of happy families doing  well on their farms.     "'If ittoere were  more districts like this one," Mr. Foley  added,  "we would soon  be experiing  $2,500,000: of farm products,  Instead of  Importing them."      (Applause.) .>   San-  foi'd Fleming lias said that Canada and  the United States were the only cburi-l  tries that did not control Us telegraph  lines.     If other countries can operate  them with a profit, he thought that we  could do likewise.      In  the matter of  public  Ownership of Railways  Mr. Foley drew attention to the fact  that the government had 'bonused the  C. P. R. with'"25,000,000 in cash nod a  land grant or 25,000,000 acres, whicW latter ho ventured  to predict would be  sold  for sums  that  would  build tlie |  great transcontinental line twice over.  Was not this an object lesson to show  that Uie road should belong to the nation,  Instead of the nation  belonging  to it?     (Applause.)     Tbe attempt at  Victoria to give away the vast tracts  of land to build flhle Canada Northern  was referred to..   Why could not this  road be built by the government? Premier    Dunsmulr,   whose   government  tried hard,to give this land away, owns  as  much  land as Is  contained In,a  European empire, which Is .  Exempt from Taxation.  Besides there are valuable coal lands.  ���  Railway companies control the wages  of    this    country.    When,    workmen'  aru    scarce,    .they    simply      transport aliens totake their places. The  same applies to all transportation companies.'    i So long   as railroads , and  steamboats are privately owned, working men can absolutely accomplish nothing, even though they are orga n Isert  to the hilt.    Speaking of trusts, it was  shown how the'Standard Oil trust did  business. :���-In'Pennsylvania, a. certain  Individual' owned a well worth; $50,000  annually. '��. Rockefeller's agents offered  tb.buy It for $25,000, whlcli was refused.  The Standard Oil then reduced the selling, price ot oil In. tliis district 2 cents  a gallon less than the owner of the  small well could produce it for.    And  The Price or Oil  elsewhere was raised 2 cents.     At the  end of the year the Standard Oil people  bought the "50,000 well for "12,000. This  same sort of things hold good In   the  mining   of coal In this   province and  elsewhere.    Then why should not the  state move to control these trusts? It  is up   to   the  workingman   to change  this state of things.    Mr. Schwab has  stated that his syndicate owns 60,000  acres  of coal lands worth $60,000 an  acre,  or something like  three  billion  and a, half dollars.     Yet the people  sleep on;   but when they  do awake,  what will be the result?    "I believe in  the principle of public ownership," said  the speaker; "and I believe In tackling  the railways flrst, and . then the coal  and  NO 14  land monopolies." (Applauw)  Speaking of enfranchising women, Mr.  Foley said tlhe .principle was a mutter  of Justice.    As It was It was taxation  Without Representation.  In George the Third's time there was a  revolution ovcr thiB form' of tyranny.  Opponents to the women's franchise asserted that women did not possess administrative ability.    He disputed this  argument can be produced in favor of  oompulsory arbitration then that alone  In the Interests of the business com  munlty should be sufficient to warrant  all business men to support Its principle. Carroll D. Wright, the United  States statistician, says that the loss  to the country In the last 20 years over  strikes was half a billion dollars in  wages, besides other heavy losses to  commerce. "We In the upper country  have learned from1 bitter experience the  result of strikes, not alone to workmen  themselves, but to trades people. Compulsory arbitration, is no experiment.  It has proved successful 1n other coun  tries, and is what Is wanted In this  country." If business men would  study economics as much as they do  how to  '  Cut the Throats  of  tflVeir competitors,.their assistance  would soon put an end to these industrial wars.    .Something must be done to  stop these disastrous civil wars.     The  Pcteiioo massacre In 1819 was but the  kindling of the flame which 'resulted in |  the passing of We reform.bill of 1832.  'The burgeois classes, when1 they received the franchise, cowardly deserted the  artisan class and left them  to  fight  their own battles, and it looks as if this  Is being repeated to-day.    Don't barter  away your franchise.    The full dlnner-  pnll has a tendency of bribing the hungry workmen.    It is absolutely useless  to  resort  to violence to obtain your  rights/when the ballot-box Is-the place  to,redress your   wrongs.     (Applause.)  You must take political action; as well  as being thoroughly  organised   to enforce your wage scale.  The Average Wages  paid a few years ago to the miners of  Pennsylvania was $7 a day.     Now it  was T5 cents, notwithstanding a strong  union..   The same tactics on the part of  the capitalists to bring this about apply  to Wyoming, Colorado, and British Columbia, which places are all.well organised. The line of battle Is moving westward.    Here on the coast the Mongolians are coming in. and ttie whites are  receding to t'We Rookies, where they are  met by retreating whites from ithe east,  whose places are becoming fast absorbed by aliens from, the older countries.  The means of .transportation is.1n private hands, when they should be under public   control.:    At  the present  time one of the most  Terrible Wage Wars  in the (history of: the./world Is now going on.     Yet In the ;face;or all these  facts, no man should resort to violence  to gain his rights.     "Youideserve to  suffer if you so repeatedly   vote against  your own Interests.    You have got to  be a power In the arena of polities or  a slave In the Industrial world.    We've  got laws called 'labor laws' which in  reality are sop.    They are not enforced  nor ever will be until you enforce t'hem  yourselves.     Take,  for  instance,   the  truck act of this province, which 1s being violated at the coal mines at Fer  nie.     If the men don't patronise the  company's stores they will not be employed by them.    The War Eagle mincing company immediately after tihe passage of the truck act began the construction of a $40,000 boarding /house.  In California  The Truck System  of payment of wages became a ourse.  An act was passed fixing pay day on  tWe 26th of each   month,    when  the  wages would ibe paid In legal currency.  To get over this the company always  kept back 16 days' pay.    When a workman    waa    discharged, a time check,  which was not negotiable, was Winded  -him,-but;the company-would~cnsh"It~a l  the store for 15 per cent. less than what  It was worth.     One can now begin to  see on the horizon of a human state  of affaire the    approach   of the day  when     the    coachman    an d  housemaid are not compelled to wear a livery to distinguish them from their masters,     I hope to see the day when a  poor man will be on nn eijunllty In tmj  legislature.

Debs  Lectured to a Large Gathering on Monday Night���His Subject was "Why I Am a Socialist"���  Socialism No Dream.  Eugene V. Debs, one of the best-  known reformers of to-day, spoke for  two hours to a large audience In the  city hall on Monday evening last.    .  The meeting wus opened by the election of Mr. KIngsley, of Nanalmo, as  chairman. He flrst Introduced Mr. Weston .Wrlgley, of Toronto, who spoke of  the strike of printers in the Timothy  Eaton stores of that city. He advised  his hearers to refrain from patronising  this institution.  Mr. Dobs was then introduced,  and  spoke in part os follows:    "Man is the  marvel of creation.    He has conquered  nature; he has conquered his fellow-  man;  but he has  not.yet conquered  himself.    We live in a competitive age,  in which each seeks to get the .better  of his fellow, and If one succeeds another fails.    Centralisation i.s tlh'e order  of the day, and Is gradually  Paving the Way  from the competitive system to a more  orderly one.     The present system has  about run its course, and  to-day  the  working men and women nre marshaling their forces against it.     Some of  you are under the impression that socialism-.is  going  to  expropriate your  private property   and take   from7 you  what you have, uHillle nothing can be  further from the Ideals of the socialist  movement.     You. will  be stripped  of  your property���not    by   the    socialist  movement, but by the capitalist system which you uphold. (Applause.) The  newspapers   are opposed   in   most Inst aces to socialism.    They arc the organs of tlhe classes.     The views expressed In them were not necessarily  those of their writers.    The latter were  simply tho servants of the capitalists  and had to write according to the policy  or the paper.    The middle classes'who  now sit in silent content would soon li��  gobbled1 up, and then they would be In  tiie ranks of the laboring class, and  would appreciate'  The  Benefits  of  Socialism-  Society, like the Individuals who compose It, Is under the inexorable law of  evolution.     It'is simply a question of  time until this system' will be abolished  and' a, new co-operative commonwealth  established. The old'tra'des union working" on economic lines Is out of date.  The strike is simply a question of endurance   and is' a fight   between an  empty stomach and a steer bank vault.  To be consistent, union men, you must  put your union label on your ballot on  election day.     Men strike against this  system'butHliley prefer to vote to perpetuate it.     There ure two wings of  the capitalist ln politics, and no matter  which wins, the workers   lose.     (Applause.) Thousands of /ermons on the  brotherhood of man huve been preached  but we were no better off than we were  a thousand years ago.     Man In. the  primitive  state  was  his own master,  but labor-saving machinery lias forced  thousands ; of men:   on to the   street.  Socialism   Is a scientific   analysis of  society.    It is  Not a Dream,  but a science as exact as mathematics.  The capitalist to-day who" produces  cheapest 1s the one wlhb sells cheapest,  and he produces cheapest who pays the  chean"esf~hibo?rThere never was a time  when the worker was paid less than to-  from now it will be dllllcult to find thel  original socialist In Vancouver.     Any,  one can be In the majority, but lt takes  a man to be in the minority.     Socialism does not propose to mend this system, but to end 1t.     There Is but one  issue���It Is the simple question of the!  ownership of Utile means of production:  At the best, In winning a .strike, you  have only Increased the.cost of production.    Suicides and prostitution aro  all tremendously on. the Increase.    ,We  talk of political liberty.     There is no  such a thing.    We are no freer on this  side of the water than on. thle other*  War to-day 1s holy.   , ^.^  A Reach, for Markets,  and the men who declare war do not  fio to war.    If there had been no gold  in the Transvaal there would have Iieea  no war, and If there were no new markets to be had 1n the Philippines, the  United  States government  would  not  be anxious to clvllze them.     Nations  go to war to-day because the getting of  wealth Is counted of more value than  human life.     The competitive system  appeals to all that Is selfish and combative in human nature.     I honor the  agitator.    Intelligent discontent 1s BHe  torch-bearer of progress.    But the agitator is soon a marked' man.     Socialism stands against Individualism, and  for .mutualism, which Is not each for  himself, but all for all.     The trust today Is the half-way house to socialism,  and cannot be put back, and Is paving  the way to the new social order. Wliere  Justice Is done,"tliere Is not necessity  for charity.     Men who believe in the  principles of socialism, must cut loose  from'the old capitalist parties.    The  triumph of  this  movement Is only a  matter   of time,   and we know   that  emancipation will be achieved, and then  shall .we enjoy the co-operative commonwealth." . .....  Thle speaker took his seat amid loud  applause.  C. STUART CAMPBELL,  President of Typographical Union, Nov  22G,  Held for Speculation.  Mr. Price Ellison has made an attempt  to put. a large tract under cultivation,  and a little further on is Lonl Aberdeen's ranch.

The vibrating tone of tlio woman's  reply struck n chill to the heart of the  young girl who heard it.  "iHhnll follow you to tho ends of  tho earth, until you have mended the  wrong you havo dono mo."  "You know that I have dono you no  wrong. Your very loVo and suffering  ought to toll.you that."  "You think, I suppeso, then, that I  ought to be grateful to you. You  think you havo dono me a kindness."  "I know that I havo."  "And I.curse you for itl"  Tho ringing voico broko strangely  upon tho stillness and solitude of tho  night.   Mira realized  now   that  tho  woman was the same whom she had  seen a short time beforo, outside the  parlor window. Tho long, dark hair  had been bound up, and was not wildly streaming in tho wind, as it had  been, and her torn gown was pinned  together ovor hor nock and shoulders,  which in Mira's iirst view of hor, had  been recklessly exposed. Slio was  haggard and emaciated���aud yet sho  wus fair, very fair. Mira wondered,  with a thrill of excitement, if tho  inan at hor side wore conscious of how  fair she still was. Thero was something vogul in her straight form, n.s  standing in the narrow path, sho  throw back hor head and delivered  upon him tho hatred of hor heart.  "I oui'so you for it, and Isliullcnr.se  you while I breathe nnd think���until  you hnvo restored in mo whnt you  havo taken from me!" -  Poor Mira found herself in painful  perplexity us to how sho could possi-  blv avoid hearing this talk intoiidcd  for no.stranger's ours... Sho could not  stir without betraying hor presence,  aiid sho shrank in horror from facing  Dr. Forney, under tho circumstances.  She objected, too, to being discovered  hero alone nt night, for slio knew she  hnd defied propriety in coming. But  while she hesitated, not knowing  whnt she ought, to do, tho tnlk wont  on.  "You know," Forney calmly answered, "your curses can avail nolh-  ing; and if you will  do  what  I  ask  you to "  "I do not trust you���I believe nothing you tell mo. If I did as yon asked  me, you would probably havo ma looked up in tho insane asylum."  "You aro very foolish. What object  could I havo in doing that?"  "Yes, what object could you havo!  What object havo you had in all the  othor misery you have brought upon  mo? Walter Fornoy, I sliall mako you  suffer for ihe wrong you have done  mo, if I havo to sell my soul to do  itl"  "Ono thing I am determined upon,"  ho quietly answered. "Yoii'must stop  dogsring my footsteps. I havo had all  I am going to stand of that. It must  stop.''  "Or you will appeal to tho law  again?" sho said bitterly; "vou will  perhaps put me to prison?"  "I have quite mado up my mind  that I will not be followed and annoyed by you any longer. I hope you  will not forco mo to tako any meas  ures in tho matter."  For a moment she did not answer.  When she spoko again it was in an  altered manner. Her voice was low  and sorrowful and thoro was a pone  trating sweetness"in it.  "Havo you no heart at all���no pity  for mo? Can you look on my misery  without any romorso for what you  have done?"  "Ihave pity for you," camo the  answer in a tone more gontlo and kind  than Mira had over heard from that  usually cold, reserved voice. "Too  much pity to givo you what you usk.  Can vou not believe that I firmly  mean what I say? In all your exnsr-  leucc with me, have you' ever found  me aflirming anything I did not mean?

Slio covered hor face with her hands  and a hopeless sob broke from her.  . "Oh!" sho cried, "I know only too  woll that I can novor move you! You  aro a rock! Y'ou havo no heart, no  pity! And I nni helpless���I have no  redress, no defense against tho cruel  wrong you aro doing me."  "But you have," ho snid quietly.  "Only do what I ask aud everything  may bo well wilh you again, "now, "  ho suddenly said, "lot-us go on���I  shall  see  you  housed for the night���  and to-morrow "  Thoy had walked on while ho spoko,  and now Mira could hoar no more.  Sho remained fixed to tho spot  where sho stood, with astonishment  at what sho had heard and chagrin at  lier enforced position as eavesdropper.  The solitude that closed upon lier  when thoy wore out of sight and hearing, tlio vnstnoss and darkness iu  :wliicli_slic_found_hcrself_nlone,_looki.  ing out upon soa and sky and huge  rocks, mado hor shudder with ti nameless fear. Sho was an inexperienced  girl, and tho scono sho had witnessoS  gathered to itself very roinmitic colors  iu hor imagination. Somo phases of  tho romance wore, to bo sure, a little  inexplicable; thoro was nothing of the  possible villain about Dr. Fornoy.  however much that shattered young  woman might answer to one's convent ional idea of tho wronged hnd  ruined horoino. His manner towards  hor, too, hud booiicnlni and linn, and  had tonded to counteract tho dark suspicions naturally aroused by tho words  thoy both hud spoken.

Edward II. and his Queen'Isabella  were crowned together at Westminster:'-'Abbey on Feb; ill, 1308. -Uhe.  great;occasion was 'lniii'i'odby muiiyi  blunders, chief among them being  the weak fondness snown by the  young Queen to his foreign fa\or-  itc Tiers Guvoston. He was put  forward as the principal personage���  the principal object of attention and  worship, to the great insult of tho  .barons and chief men ol the realm.  Gaveslon- only must carry the  crown, beforo the King and Queen,  though this was aii ollice to which  tiie great Earls of Lancaster or  - Hereford -might have laid more fitting claim.' Uhe nobles were filled  with indignation, which - tiniest 0:1,  instead of ondetuoring to disarm by  more modest conduct, appeared lo  take a particular pleasure) in ng-  grevnting to the extreme, lie appeared in the greatest splendor of  attire, and his equipage and retinue  outshone thein all. It seemed as it  every opportunity was sought rather  than merely employed, to exalt the  favorite, no matter at whatever  cost, whatever risk, or whatever  alienation of men's minds. - Thc  selection of Woodcock, llishop of  Winchester, to crown the King and  Queen was an evidence of the unworthy character of tho monarch,  that prelate having conspired  against his Sovereign, Edwin d 1.  Owing to the clumsiness of Ga-  veston's arrangements it was three  o'clock beforo the consecration of  the King and Queen was over, and  thc short wintry days protracted  tho banquet till dark. Thc lateness excited tlio wrath of the hungry nobles, and still more what followed, for the food was badly cooked and ill served, with a total want  of ceremony. The Queen experienced many slights, but whether intentional on the part of Guvoston or  otherwise is not known. Isabella,  however, sent a letter to tho King  of France, her father, complaining  of Gavcston. At this coronation,  so great was tho pressure of the  crowd that ' Sir John Bn.kewell,  knight, was trodden to death. ��� In  course of the ceremony the King  offered, first, a pound of gold, made  like a king holding a ring in his  hand, and afterwards a mark, or  eiglit ounces of gold, formed into a  pilgrim putting forth his hand to  receive the ring���a conceit suggested  by the legend of Edward the Confessor.

George 1,11.; Jan. 20, 1S20, and  the accession of his son, thc  Prince llegont, as George IV., only  added to tho general disturbance of  men's minds," says Lloyd's ' Weekly  Newspaper. One result was a plot  by some 'desperate men to assassinate the whole Ministry. The head  of this conspiracy was a discharged soldier ' named Arthur This-  tlewood, Wlio had been Imprisoned  for twelve months for annoying  Lord Sidmouth.,' Along with ' a  band of a dozen ��� or more ; desperadoes it had been arranged  that some of them should watch tho  door of Lord Ilarrowby's house,  where, whilst one of the gang delivered a pretended despatch-box, the  rest wero to rush in und kill all  tho King's Ministers whilo they  were nt dinner, Lord Sidmouth, and  Castlerehgh being specially, marked  out for ^ vengeance..' From Grosven-  or square they were to rush off tb  the barracks in.Ifydo Park, , and  thence to attack' the' Bank bf England'and the Tower of "London, as  they expected that they would have  the people with them. Mean time,  however, the Government had obtained scent of thc intended massacre through a spy, nnd whilst thc assassins were'.assembl6d ' >in a stable  loft in Cuto street, thoy were surprised by a body of How Street officers, who made their way up the  ladder into the loft.

May I, however, be permitted, even if  l express it to you in a very quaint  way,    to    refer     to tho admiration  which is entcrtulned for  Canada  by  thoso who have not ..tho. goad,     fortune of being Canadians. It was my  privilege to accompany the Prince of  Wales during his totir through    Canada last fall;'  I wns anxious to know  if possible from the Prince of   Wales  or from,  his   .stall what impression  they     had gathered of the different',  colonics     which  they, hud  \isitcd ���'  Australia; New Zealand, and at hist  Canada.       I am sorry    to s.ty that  from  His Hoyal Highness  1      could  not have very much information. Neither was I surprised at his reticence,  lioing tho  future .Sovereign  of     the  wlivle empire,     perhaps ho thought,  r.nd not unnaturally, it might    have  been  invidious  if he had  gixen    his  own  views  and  expressed  preference  for one part of the empire    or    thc  otlier.   Tho same reticence I    found  also iu thc secretaries und  equerries  of His Royal Highness. Tho     Prince  had, however, among his suite a gentleman     whom I found more talkative,  and for whom I am sure       it  would-have been impossible to   conceal his thoughts. The gcntlemnn was  Chevalier do Martiuo, the painter for  the royal party. The Chevalier     de  Murlino   was  an   Italian���a   Neapolitan-���and had all thc effusiveness    of  his ��� nice.   lie talked nol so     much  witli his tongue as with his hands���  his speech consisted largely of    gestures.  I said to hiin, "Well  sir,  what  do you think of the different countries  you have visited?' and this was his  answer:  'Australia���nh, no,  no; I do  not care for Australia. New Zealand  ���a     line country. But, ah:  Canada,  Canada,  Canada!' lie did not      say  more���(cheers)���but his gestures were  very expressive, and I folt very proud  of my country.   I believe that if all  tho    royal    party,  from  tho     Puke  downwards,      had  expressed       thoir  mind as did my friend the Neapolitan  painter, they would have said    that  Canada excelled everything else   they  had 'seen. At all events 1 was   ready  to believe that,  and  it was a great  pleasure for ine to be assured   -that  Canada excollcd'e\eryUiing that   hitd'  been \isitcd by the royal party. And  we Canadians believe not only   thnt  Canada excels everything that     had  been visited by thc royal party. And  we Canadians believe not only that  Caniwla excels everything that     had  been visited by thc royal party,  but'  we  believe this country excels every  other land in the.world.

There is only     one  tiling we want in Canada, and    that  is unity and harmony amongst     us.  lt has  been, stated somewhere    that  he who causes two blades of grass to  grow where ono grew is a benefactor  of mankind.  I,  for my  part,  believe  lint he who. eradicates one prejudice  ni.d promotes harmony where discord  would have been is a greater     benefactor  of mankind.   (Chccis.)     What  we want is, above all, to be     Canadians.  British subjects we are,    and  proud  of it, .but Canadians��� we   nro  also, and moro proud of-it yet. Tho  members     of    the association  have  drno a great deal to promote     that  harmony.   In my own time, since    I  entered politics some 25 or 27 years  ago,    I liave     seen daily and yearly  growing the work of unification      of  our country.   Wc have still some little jnrrings;  sometimes we hear     of  this nnd that in one province or this  nnd that in thc other province;   but  beyond     nil    thnt there is a steady  sentiment    permeating our    country  lhat wc are more united as a    people."   (Cheers.)   Tn' conclusion,      Sir  Wilfrid  said  that  thi.s  feeling would  grow'the more the, people of the-several     provinces    became acquainted  with each other.

Wby XovelM Aru  \\ ritlen   nntl   Ue:id   nnd  'lllrir  :��-.' dunci***. '  At St. Margaret's  College.'Toronto,  a   week  or  two ago,  Prof.. Neil-  son  of Hur.vard. University, formerly  of Upper Canada College, delnecda  lecture,  scholarly,   thoughtful        and  yet     exceedingly       due. taiiimg,   upon "The Inlluence of the iSoyel." Mr.  Neilson dealt with the novel      froui  three    points of view:     Why peoplu  u-luiost without exception rend iheni,  whv authors write thein,  and   what  is their    effect,     intellectually '   and  morally.      The Iirst inquiry      would  elicit    very indefinite replies, killing  timo  and the vague  expression       of  deriving pleasure  being the        most  commonly  advanced  reasons.       Authors, gave  different      reasons      for  writing   novels.     The     novelists  of  the eighteenth century usually      eve-"  plained iii their prefaces that     thoir  object  was   to  depict  model       characters, in  order that tlieir    readers  might    pattern     their  conduct  after  them.     Scott   was content to writo"  for the entertainment of his nudors.  Dickens   wrote  to  show  the    evil   of  particular     vices   or to   correct   social     evils.      Moie modern novelists  spoke of    pictures  of modern     life,  and talked     more of method than of  purpose.     No writer oi novels    suggested     for  a     moment  that        he  wrote    for money, although to    the  man who  did not  write novels that  would   be jdaced in tho very       first  rank among the   reasons.     Mr. Neil-  son  attributed much  writing of   novels     to   the spirit     wliich makes   a.  man who      has heard    a good stoiy  unhappy    until    ho  can tell it     to  someone     else.   Mr. Neilson devoted  some attention to the modern      historical  novel,  warning his      hcarcii  against giving the  novelist       undue  credit for accurate portrayal of historical characters  and  cvon'-s,  when  that work  had already   been      dono  in. the  mind of the reader      by    his  conception   of the event    or character.      He   condemned the sensational .  novel,  suggesting   as   a   test of sensationalism  the  tendency  of     �� novel or play     to create a desiro  '   in  tho     mind for stronger stimulations  to   emotion,   rather than    to,, enable ,,  us  to  distinguish  fine shades' of. difference   in  character,   and  to      "put  yourself in his place."      Novels      of  a good   class  increased     our    knowledge      of     human character, broadened our sympathies and      incroase'd  the .intensity of onr lives.      As      to  thc     didactic    value    of the    novel,  Mr. Neilson's view, allhouch ho must-  be acquitted of using the expression,  was  that the novelist could     sugar-  coat a moral pill that people would  not   take from a preacher.

Numerous other matters get tlie attention of the working  .people .before their home paper is  thought of. .Money Is spent In saloons,  at balls, theatres find other places in  preference to using a mite of that outlay io the support of a labor papei.  The pages of the lalior paper are always open for Ihe use of the working-  people. It cannot and will not bo  ��los(M to anyone li.u-in-r a qxievnnee to  explain. But, notwithstanding: all  this, the time and money spent on a  labor paper by its publishers seems to  ���be overlooked by -the workingmen, and  instead of receiving the united suppoit  of the tolleis, it is nllowed to shift  along tho best way it can. This is not  because the paper is unappreciated, but  from carelessness and neglect that  theSe conditions exist. As soon ai  trouble comes tha^t affects theVworkfiig  men,' and their paper takes up their  fight'.Ip, their 'behalf, they have plenty  of time to visit the oflice with articles  and advice nbout what should be said  and done In their interest; tout as soon  aa the right Is won ond they have benefited, tihey forget their friend the publisher,' and 'have no .use for the pa.per.

Now that tlie holiday rush is over,  there is a calm iu the book World,  while we wait the coming Hood ol  light literature for summer perusal.  History, biography, religion and science appear to be the themes.of most  of the new books now appearing.  Among the historical works is a reprint of Morgan's "League of the  Iroijuois," witli copious additions by  Herbert II. Lloyd. The book wns  published in Rochester iii '4851, was  originally issued in a small edition,  which lias long boon out of print and  extremely rare. The alterations a'nd  new mutter supplied by Mr. Lloyd  consist of corrections made by, Mr.  Morgan in his own copy of thc book,  personal reminiscences of Morgan by  Mr. Charles T. Porter, who, wus a  collaborator on the original edition,  nnd a short biographical-sketch of  Morgan, with an account of his work  and full notes by: the editor.: The  latter include a large amount of Jesuit material, translated especially  for the present edition. Some of this  matter hud been previously translat-  ��� ed, but the greater portion appears  lor the first time in English, thc  whole being, an. original translation.  There has also been added considerable matter excluded , by Mr. Morgan  ���from-the-original-edition-for-luck-of  space, but which subsequently appeared in; various volumes long since  out of print. "The League of the  Iroquois" has long been considered  the best of all books relating to the  institutions nnd customs of that people. The present edi'. ion will go rapidly out of print.. The book is to lie  published in two editions, one on  handsome paper; limited lo !!00 copies, at 815 net, and a Japan edition, limited to thirty copies, at  fDO net. The handsome papei' copies are illustrated by sixteen full  page plates in color and fifty text  cuts. There will ulso bo a portrait of  Morgan In photogravure uml two  large maps In coloi'.

Uncle Sam's paper money has its  birth In the bureau of engraving and  printing ln Washington. Hero a corps  of engravers cut Its lines into plates  of steel. Five Iiundred men and women nro ln one room. It Is tlie largest  piintlng olllce In the world. Here nre  struck from these plates the notes  which we give the butcher and the  baker. Each steel plate when not In  actual use Is stored nwny In a great  burglar proof vault to which only the  highest olllchils know the combination.  At the side of each printing press Is a  little Indicator like a bicycle cyclometer, , which keeps tally of every piece of  paper money printed. Thus Is Uncle  Sam kept Informed as to the exact  number of paper notes of nil denominations which leave his presses dully.  If there is any secret which Uncle  Sam jealously guards, It Is the process  of iiisimifncturing the fiber paper upon  which his money notes are printed,  lie pays a Massachusetts linn ii big  prico for it, nml this firm does its work  under the surveillance' of a governuieut agent. The paper is manufactured of tho finest rugs, cleaned, boiled  and mashed into pulp. As It is rolled  Into thin sheets silk threads are introduced Into It by a secret process.  Those'arc the distinguishing marks  making imitation of the paper well  nigh Impossible.  The shoots of paper, already counted  twice and placed in uniform packages  nt tho paper mill, are stored in a treasury vault nntl issued to tho bureau of  engraving nntl printing as wanted. Before leaving the treasury they are  counted three times more, and the receiving ofllclal at the bureau must receipt for thein. Then the bundles are  unwrapped, and the sheets arc counted  twenty-eight times by a corps of women., This Is to insure.that each printer gets the recorded, number���no more,  no'less.'

A corn is an overgrowth of tho  horny layer of some portion of tho  skin -of thc foot induced by friction  or under pressure in one spot by the  shoe. It is situated generally on a  .prominent'portion'of o:ic or more  toes, more commonly the little toe,  but may be on tlm side of the foot  or even on  the .tinkle bone.  Tho Iirst thing to do for a corn is  to gel new shoes lhat arc so snug  as not to rub the foot .anywhere' and  so loose as not to make pressure in  one spot more than another.  The top of the corn may be pared  with d sharp, knife, extreme' care being taken, especially in tho caso of  the aged, not to cut the sound skin,  or it may be filed down to the level  of'the surrounding skin, oi- the entire corn may sometimes be loosened  with a dull knife.blade or by-the.finger nail and extracted from: its bed.  When this cannot be done, removal  may be facilitated by moistening tho  corn every other day with glacial  acetic acid, the softened part being  subsequently scraped away with a  dull knife, or a small * file. A salvo  containing salicylic acid applied 'every, night) will also frequently, .loosen  the corn so that it can be pulled  out. This is 'tho basis of many ::, of  the corn plasters.  :A soft corn, which is merely a corn  that is always moist on account of  its locution on the inner surface of  one of the toes, should be treated by  keeping a piece of absorbent 'cotton  between V the toes so as to prevent  iiiascerntion and by bathing it fre^  qucntly with strong alum water.

In India the tea plant is naturally  a tree,  but by means of pruning it  is kept so small that it seems to be  only a bush.  If one sheet of this precious paper be  lost, the entire force of men and women having access to the room where  the misplacement has occurred .are  kept In,.like so many school children,  to find it. Eaeli sheet is issued from  the .vault for tlie printing of ii definite  amount of money upon it. If the lost  sheet wore Intended to ultimately represent ��4.000 worth of iiotos. the group  of employees to whom the responsibility of its misplacement has been traced  must make good that amount if they  "cannot, locate it' within a reasonable  time.  Twenty-four times more are the  sheets containing the. printed money  counted after leaving the presses. Then  thoy are scaled in packages of 1,000,  placed on racks In n drying room of  130 degrees temperature, unpacked,  thoroughly examined,. smoothed in  powerful hydraulic presses und packed  In wooden'cases. These cases nre hauled to the treasury in an ironclad wag-  o.m. Six guards, heavily nrmud, nccom-  . pa liy this .wagon whenever, it, makes a  irip.  No attempt to steal Uncle Sam's money while undergoing nny of these stages  of manufacture has yet been detected.  As n matter of fact, the money would  he practically useless, for 'its,';printing  Is not completed until after it makes  this guarded journey to the treasury.  There the finishing touch is added in  the printing of the colored serif upon  the face of each note. With the sis  sealing presses the same precautions  nre taken ns with the two hundred and  fifty big money presses In the other  building. Each sheet coming from the  former has n row of notes printed upon  If. The sheets are put through small  machines, operated by girls, who cut  out the Individual notes. Even;the  small strips; falling like shavings from  their machines, must be carefully collected, sent to the bureau of engraving  and printing and there boiled into pulp.  An employee found with even one of  ���these ribbons of waste paper Is liable  tcrimprisoninent~for"Ufteejrycnrs~nnd  a fine of $5,000.  Between these different processes the  pnper money has been counted and recounted six additional times. Finally  the single'notes nre placed in stacks of  10Q, with all of the blue numbers printed on their faces In sequence. They  nr<�� then wrapped In paper, labeled,  sealed witli red wax and stored lu the  grent treasury vaults. Thus each piece  of paper money uow In circulation lins  been olllelully ocounted sixty-three  {fines.

Then wo have  such entries as these: "It is ordained  by common consent that all the women of.the village must refrain their  tongues from nil Blundering."

The principlo is  very simple. Tho body or main support of the instrument is in no way  employed forysotind purposes. It  simply holds the various parts of  tho violin together and sustains tho  enormous -, pressure of thc strings  when tuned. : Attached to this body  are a vibrating diaphragm 'and a  trumpet - shaped resonator.

At the 'expiration of five minutes  the compositions  wore read. The  prize went to a Ind of nine years.  Following is his essay:  "Well, sir, habit is hard ,to overcome. If you take off the fust letter, it docs not change 'abit.' If  you take oft another, you still have  a-'bit' left. If you take'off still  another, tho whole of 'it'/remains.

V Since S'M-  (00 pounds raised one foot per minute  Is culled one horsepower It is tmtiiml  lhat people should think the engineers  who established that unit of measurement based It on  what horses could  really do.   Hut the horse thut. can do  this work docs not exist.  Tlie horsepower unit was established  , by Jiimos Watt uliout a century ago,  und Hie figures were fixed iu 11 curious  way.    Walt   found   that  the  average  lior.se of his district could raise 22,0110  pounds one foot per minute.   At that  time Watt was employed in tho'inunu-  fncturo of engines, and customers were  so. hard to'find thiit all kinds of artificial  Inducements were necessary to  induce power users to'buy steam engines.   As a  method  of encouraging  thein Watt offered to sell engines reckoning."o.OOO foot pounds to a' horsepow  cr.

MARKET REVIEW.'  WHEAT��� During ,tho past week it  has   seemed    an    unusually   difficult  thing    foi   traders to make up thcir  minds   as; ��� th,o   chances    of tho' present   situation    in the wheat trade.  Last week tradc\showed itself acti\e  and markets buoy^yit, but in the in-  ter\al    between Friday nnd Monday  there    was    an   increase of showers  oyer Kansas ans adjoining territory,  and on Monday the spaaiilati ve markets  ii^lie States felt th^ effects of  this    ^Rngly,   aiid a droiivof lc to  lVJe   5��^    place.

Since    then   some renewal of  confidence is'evident, but in the week  prices   show    a decline of lc to l^c,  as -"compared with closing prices on  Friday of last week.   The rains and  more favorable weather over a large  urea    of    the   winter   wlieat in the  Stales    hnve    imparted a somewhat  more   encouraging   feeling as to the  prospects    for    the   crops over such  area, Iiut we think tlie improvement  amounts    rather    to the saving of a  portion    of what was promising lo  be almost, a lost crop hud the adverse  weather  been  continued  rather than  the   establishing    of    anything that  could   now   turn    out a fairly good  yield.   In fact, we are of the opinion  that    thu   rains    in Kansas and the  southwest    have   come    at    a time  when .[ the   crop is too far advanced  towards    harvest    to : be  benefitted  materially by it, and that, the yield  in the State of Kansas at least will  not amount'to over 30 per cent, of  last years' yield.

Every   mother   knows   that   little  children need   careful  attention���but  they do not need strong drugs. When  baby is  peevish, 'cross or unwell,  it  is an unfortunate fact that too many  mothers, dose   them with    so-called  "soothing'' medicines   which stupefy  and'put the little-   one into an unnatural sleep, but do not remove the  cause of the trouble." What is wanted  to make tli? little ones, bright, cheerful and well is Baby's Own Tablets,  whicli will promptly cure, colic, sour  stomach,   indigestion,    constipation,  diarrhoea,  simple  fevers  and   teething    troubles.      They give    children  sound refreshing sleep,  because tliey  remove  the  cause    of    the  trouble.  These tablets arc guaranteed to contain no    opiate    or    other harmful  thug.   Mrs.  Jamcf.  Found,  Valentia,  Out., says:      "Before I got   Baby's  Own Tablets my Baby wns very pale  and  delicate and so peevish  that   I  had to walk the floor-with .'him day  and night.   The first tablet   I   gave  him  helped  him,  and  that night- he  slept soundly.     Since then the tablets  have made him perfectly   well,  and he is now a   fine, healthy looking baby,  and is getting quite   fat.  1 would not he 'without' the tablets  if they cost a dollar a box."  -.Baby's Own Tablets   are good for  children of all ages and arc taken as  readily ns   candy.

The principle upon which the manufacture of ice is based Is that a gas  when compressed gathers heat enormously, and if robbed of this heat end  allowed to.escape at a future time It  seeks to regain Its heat by withdrawing heat from its surroundings.   Ammonia gns Is generally preferred to  others because it can be liquefied with-  comparatively little pressure.   On re-:  moving the: water from: common: am-  mouin by distillation anhydrous ammonia is obtained.   This is compressed  by a combined steam pump aud a compressor, and "the resulting liquefaction  induces heat, which Is economized by  circulating water about the vessel or  pipe containing the liquefied ammonia.  Thus file ammonia is cooled and the  .heiitJargely-transferraUto-tlieiwatorv���  which  Is then  pumped  back^ to the  boiler that supplies tho steam pump.  The liquid ammonia is then carried in  a pipe to expansion coils that afford  plenty  of  room  for  Its evaporation,  when It begins to return to the gaseous  form and to draw heat from Its surroundings,   which   gradually   reduces  .the"temperature.    Proper vessels of  witter are.placed In contact with the  expansion colls, and in due time ico  Is formed.   * ' ��� '    ���  Lj-ncU Law. . .     ,  1/yncli law In Its usual .moaning is  Bald to bo traceable to n Gnlway 'worthy.
